          School summer holidays should be shorter      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

YOU return from work on a muggy August evening. Your unwashed teenage son is on the sofa playing Fortnite, as he has been doing for the past eight hours. Your daughter, scrolling through Instagram, acknowledges your presence with a surly grunt. Not for the first time, you ask yourself: why are school summer holidays so insufferably long?

This is a more serious question than it sounds (see article). Many children will return from the long break having forgotten much of what they were taught the previous year. One study from the American South found that this “summer learning loss” could be as high as a quarter of the year’s education. Poor children tend to be the worst affected, since rich ones typically live in homes full of books and are packed off to summer camp to learn robotics, Latin or the flute. A study from Baltimore found that...

          Kevin Hart Launches New $600,000 Scholarship Program with UNCF and KIPP      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Kevin Hart: Profile

Following on his generous $100,000 scholarship gift made in 2015 through UNCF (the United Negro College Fund) to four deserving college students, actor and comedian Kevin Hart has joined forces with UNCF and KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) to help 18 more KIPP students earn a college degree.

Through a new UNCF scholarship program launched in partnership with Kevin Hart’s Help From The Hart Charity and KIPP Public Schools, the $600,000 scholarship will provide funding to support KIPP students from eight different cities who are attending 11 historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

UNCF is the largest provider of college scholarships for students of color in the U.S., awarding more than $100 million in college scholarships annually to deserving students. The 18 Help From The Hart Charity Scholarship recipients have been selected based on their academic and personal accomplishments and may receive substantive renewable awards based on need.

“The Help From The Hart Charity Scholarship will not only support students, but will also demonstrate support for HBCUs,” said UNCF CEO and President Michael L. Lomax. “Research shows that HBCUs matter, and that HBCU students are having a positive college experience, but they also have an unmet financial need. Together, Kevin and KIPP have made an investment that will have a significant impact. We can’t thank them enough for their support.”
“Education and knowledge are powerful,” said Hart. “I just wanted to do my part in providing opportunities for our future leaders, especially from my Philly hometown, and show support for HBCUs. This is just the beginning; trust me when I tell you there are a lot more kids who want to go to college who don’t have the money to make it happen.”

The 18 students receiving college scholarships are high school graduates who attended KIPP public charter schools in eight different communities: the Arkansas Delta, Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, New Orleans, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC. A recent survey of KIPP alumni across the country showed that the KIPP graduates who attend HBCUs reported a stronger sense of belonging, better mental health, and were more likely to have a mentor than those attending non-HBCUs.

“Nothing brings me greater joy than to see the hard work of these 18 KIPP students recognized by Kevin Hart and UNCF through this generous scholarship program,” said John Fisher, chair of the KIPP Foundation Board of Directors. “Michael Lomax has been a longtime KIPP supporter and friend and a tireless champion for young people. We are incredibly grateful to both UNCF and Kevin Hart for their partnership and support to help our students thrive in college and achieve their dreams.”

Hart’s gift to fund this new scholarship program puts him in line with many other renowned celebrities — like Lou Rawls, Ella Fitzgerald, Clifton Davis, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Anthony Anderson, Beyonce, Chris Rock, Usher, Pharrell Williams, Ray Charles, John Lennon, Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis who, realizing the value of a quality education, have supported UNCF over the years. “Giving back to build better futures is the name of the game, and we hope that others like Kevin will understand why educational investments are so important, especially now, and step up to help more deserving students,” said Lomax.

Lomax also added, “Over the last decade, UNCF has been building a relationship with the KIPP public school network, and we are so excited that KIPP’s board of directors and Chairman John Fisher are behind this outstanding new venture. There are more than 1,300 KIPPsters currently enrolled at HBCUs, and together, we are bringing resources and shining a spotlight on these students who are doing all they can to get a college education. This unique partnership will help UNCF continue to bridge the gap from high school success to college achievement and enables UNCF to help more students get to and through college.”

          Archbishop makes plea to remember Ukraine’s ‘silent and forgotten war’      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Baltimore, Md., Aug 9, 2018 / 05:00 pm (CNA).- Four years of fighting in eastern Ukraine have led to “the biggest humanitarian crisis on the European continent since the end of the Second World War,” according to the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.

Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk of Kyiv called on the international community and the Catholic Church not to neglect the crisis in Ukraine. He made the plea during his keynote address at the Knights of Columbus convention in Baltimore on August 7.

Since Russia annexed Crimea in 2014, the Ukrainian conflict has taken the lives of more than 10,000 people and has left 1.6 million people displaced, according to the United Nations.

“Besides all these casualties and human tragedies, there is still another hidden danger of the war in eastern Ukraine: This region is at risk of suffering a dire, long-lasting ecological catastrophe due to flooded mines and contaminated drinking water, which is comparable in scale to the Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster of 1986,” warned the archbishop.

“As many as 4 million people might be left without safe drinking water in the region,” he continued, “all of this is happening right now, in Ukraine, the largest country in Europe.”

The fighting has also damaged basic infrastructure. The World Health Organization documented  multiple attacks on Ukraine’s hospitals between 2014 and 2016.

“This is a silent and forgotten war. Because it is a ‘frozen conflict,’ no one speaks loudly about the war in Ukraine anymore,” said the archbishop.

Although a standing cease-fire exists in Ukraine, it was violated over 1,200 times in one week in July, reported the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s Special Monitoring mission in Ukraine.

“Many specialists nowadays call this war in Ukraine a ‘hybrid war,’ that is, a war where not only traditional weapons are used on battlefields, but where all means of destruction, including economic and information warfare, are employed,” explained the archbishop, “Thanks to information technologies, modern wars are not limited to specific territories.”

“Everyone in the Western world today experiences the consequences of this information war, which targets truth by disseminating ‘fake news’ and molding public opinion according to dishonest goals. Unfortunately, not even your country or other developed countries in Western Europe have been spared from these attacks. Please remember: it is not only our war — it is the war for humanity!” said Shevchuk.

The Catholic Response

“How does the Catholic Church in Ukraine, and in particular our Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, respond to the needs of the millions of people suffering from the consequences of war?” Shevchuk asked the Knights of Columbus.

The archbishop’s response was “diakonia,” the Greek New Testament term for charitable service. In the case of Ukraine, “diakonia” entails “serving to one’s neighbor, taking care of those afflicted by the war, by providing them with spiritual guidance and often with social service as well,” he said.

“Charity is an antidote to egoism and indifference. I would say that charity is also a key to understanding the success of the Knights of Columbus in Ukraine,” he continued.

The Knights of Columbus are a relatively new presence in Ukraine. The country’s first Knights of Columbus council was established five years ago -- just before Russia’s invasion of Crimea.

Today the Knights in Ukraine have dedicated much of their charitable efforts to aiding local civilians affected by the violence in the Donbas region of Eastern Ukraine.

The Ukrainian Knights of Columbus organize summer rehabilitation camps for wounded soldiers, war veterans, and their families. They regularly visit the wounded in hospitals, fundraise for first aid equipment, and provide the disabled with free wheelchairs. One Knights of Columbus council in southeastern Ukraine runs a Christian youth summer camp for children living in immediate proximity to the combat zone.

“Our society probably does not yet realize the full scale of trauma caused by the war and that is why we, as a Church and as Knights of Columbus, need to invest so much of our energy and resources into the field of rehabilitation, in order to be able to heal the wounds of our people,” said Shevchuk.

Catholics are a minority in Ukraine, most of the local population are Orthodox Christians. The archbishop said that he was encouraged to see how both Roman and Greek Catholics work together in the Knights of Columbus. He said it shows “a wonderful example of the unity of the Catholic Church in Ukraine, so much needed in Ukrainian society today.”

On August 7, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko over the phone, reassuring him of U.S. support for Ukraine’s “sovereignty and territorial integrity,” according to State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert.

A few weeks earlier, the State Department released the Crimea Declaration calling on Russia to to end its occupation of Crimea, saying, “The United States rejects Russia’s attempted annexation of Crimea and pledges to maintain this policy until Ukraine’s territorial integrity is restored.”

In the meantime, the Knights of Columbus in Ukraine will continue to aid the those suffering from the violence.

          Is It Legal for Trump to Ban Reporters from the White House?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The law provides a puzzling answer.

As long as reporters have covered government officials, they’ve sought greater access than the government was willing to allow.

The White House excluded a CNN reporter from an international trade announcement with the president of the European Commission on July 25, in apparent retaliation after she shouted unwelcome questions at President Donald Trump during an Oval Office appearance. Many observers viewed this move as an escalation of the Trump administration’s hostility toward journalists.

The Washington Post called the decision to exclude CNN’s Kaitlan Collins “highly unusual and possibly unprecedented.” Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., called it “an offense against the First Amendment interests of all of us.”

But did the White House actually violate the Constitution?

As a media law professor, I regularly remind students that the First Amendment right of access to government officials, records and events is surprisingly uncertain. The First Amendment guarantees all Americans freedom to speak and publish without government interference. It has been broadly interpreted by the Supreme Court to forbid the government from restraining or punishing a speaker based on the content of the speaker’s message.

While journalists have a clearly established First Amendment right to publish the news they’ve gathered – even in extreme cases, like the leak of stolen Pentagon documents – it’s much less clear that the First Amendment protects the right to gather the news in the first place.

A right to publish, but not a ‘right to gather?’

CNN has not indicated that it plans to take any legal action over Collins’ exclusion. In addition to being awkward – imagine a journalist taking the witness stand to testify against the White House communications director – a court case over a withdrawn invitation would face legal obstacles.

The courts have refused to recognize an overarching “constitutional right of access” to government information. Instead, they have picked off cases with narrow, specific rulings.

For instance, the Supreme Court recognized in Richmond Newspapers v. Virginia that there is a constitutional right to cover a criminal trial. Likewise, federal appeals courts agree the First Amendment guarantees the right to videotape police making arrests in a public place. At the same time, judges have found no constitutional right to obtain government documents, or to enter crime scenes that are off-limits to the public.

Does CNN’s White House correspondent, or any journalist, have a First Amendment “right” to a press pass or a spot at a news conference?

Since the Supreme Court said in its 1972 Branzburg ruling that journalists have no right to insist on greater access than the general public, probably not.

That being said, journalists do have a right not to be retaliated against, regardless of what form the retaliation takes.

Retaliatory exclusions can violate the law

Even if attending a White House event is not a constitutionally guaranteed right, that doesn’t mean the government is free to take it away as a punishment. The government cannot take away even a purely discretionary privilege if the motive is to penalize speech.

Even though there is no entitlement to hold a government job, the Supreme Court decided in 1966 that public employment cannot be denied on the basis of viewpoint.

And even though there is no entitlement to receive a discretionary government grant, the justices ruled in 2013 that a grant cannot be denied because the applicant expresses a view different from the government’s.

In other words, any action by a government agency intended to punish or deter a speaker for unwanted speech can violate the Constitution.

That same legal principle would apply today if a federal official denied a government “privilege” to a journalist on the basis of a disagreeable viewpoint.

In the CNN situation, if Collins lost something of value, like the ability to attend a presidential appearance, because of the content of her speech, she has the essential ingredients of a First Amendment case.

The White House likely would argue that it was Collins’ method of delivery – raising her voice, after being asked not to – and not the content of her message that earned her a disinvitation.

That would make a First Amendment claim blurrier.

Government agencies can regulate the “time, place and manner” of speaking, the Supreme Court has ruled, as long as the restrictions are reasonable and enforced evenhandedly. Were a case to go to court, Collins and CNN might have to demonstrate that other journalists have shouted friendlier questions without consequence.

Journalists’ rights need clarifying

In a similar case in Maryland, a news organization lost a lawsuit against Maryland’s former governor.

The Maryland case shows how difficult it can be to prove a retaliation claim. In that 2006 case, a federal appeals court ruled that Gov. Robert Ehrlich did not violate The Baltimore Sun’s First Amendment rights by directing his administration to stop returning calls or granting interviews to a reporter and columnist whose coverage Ehrlich considered unfair.

The appellate judges found the idea of a “right” to interview the governor’s aides to be a problem. If The Sun could sue over being denied access to the governor’s staff, they said, what would stop a reporter from bringing a First Amendment claim whenever his competitor gets an exclusive interview?

In essence, the judges ruled, the governor did what politicians routinely do: talk only to the journalists they trust.

The distinction in Collins’ case is that she wasn’t just denied a returned phone call. She was denied admittance to an event that she can prove she’d otherwise have been able to attend.

The ConversationIt’s unlikely news organizations will sue over White House snubs. Still, in my view, the Supreme Court needs to find a vehicle to clarify this murky area of constitutional law. It should be recognized that the First Amendment principle forbidding government officials from punishing people for the content of their speech is broad enough to protect journalists against retaliatory “freeze-outs” meant to deter aggressive coverage.

          An F-Bomb About the S-Word      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Asked by a reporter on Wednesday whether he identifies as a socialist, Ben Jealous gave a long-winded but generally on-point response implying he does not. Asked a second time for clarification, the Democratic gubernatorial nominee in Maryland gave a much shorter response: “Are you fucking kidding me?”

You can guess which of the two answers people noticed. The Washington Free Beacon posted video of the exchange with a headline declaring, “Ben Jealous explodes at reporter over being asked if he’s a socialist,” and Fox News likewise blared, “Ben Jealous snaps at reporter for socialism question.” Outlets like the Washington Post and the Baltimore Sun went with a less active verb but still highlighted the profanity: “Ben Jealous drops an f-bomb.” The GOP quickly tried to capitalize: A top official at the Republican Governors Association called Jealous “unhinged,” and a spokesman for his GOP opponent, Gov. Larry Hogan, lamented that the curse word had lowered “the level of political discourse in our state and in our country.” Jealous quickly apologized, which kept the perpetual-motion machine moving. “Ben Jealous apologizes for dropping f-bomb when asked if he’s a socialist,” announced a CBS News affiliate in Baltimore.

Even this litany of headlines fails to fully capture just how far and fast this episode spun out of control given how it began. Below is the full transcript of the exchange between Jealous and the Post’s Erin Cox, who was asking the candidate to respond to comments Hogan made in a recent New York Times interview and charges leveled against him by the RGA in a misleading attack ad. (That ad cherry-picks the first half of a June remark by Jealous, who went into the tech sector after his time as the head of the NAACP: “Go ahead, call me a socialist. That doesn’t change the fact I’m a venture capitalist.”) After Jealous’ initial 90-odd-second answer, Cox did her journalistic due diligence to remove any and all doubt.

Reporter: Governor Hogan and the RGA have made a significant amount of effort and investment in trying to paint you as a socialist—they’ve actually called you a “socialist” and a “far-left socialist” and [claimed] that the state “can’t afford” you. What is your response to, first, the term socialist, whether you embrace it, identify [with] it to any degree, and secondly, the charge about whether the state can afford you.

Jealous: You know, I about fell out of my chair when I read in the Times this weekend that Hogan was out there calling me names. And then it occurred to me, him calling me a “far-left socialist” is what the Tea Party called President Obama, it’s what Barry Goldwater called Martin Luther King. And when you see conservatives like Hogan name-calling, you realize that they’re scared. That they’re frankly afraid of the change that all of our families need—we need a more inclusive and robust economy. Now what I am is a venture capitalist. And what I do is invest in growing businesses. You can go talk to Jess Gartner at—down in Baltimore City, whose company Allovue, she’ll tell you, has benefited a lot more from my work as a venture capitalist than anything that Governor Hogan has done as governor. The reality is that when it comes to building our economy this governor has been lazy and we’re all now paying a price for it. We are dead last in the region as far as growth—we’re dead last as far as wage growth. We’ve seen health care costs surge on his watch, as he’s been part of the Republican effort to undermine Obamacare. And when I’m governor, we’ll turn things around and we’ll do it by investing in our small businesses, by pushing everybody we can into Obamacare, and doing whatever it takes to get a better deal on health care for the people of our state.

Reporter: Not to put too fine of a point on it, but do you identify with the term socialist?

Jealous: Are you fucking kidding me? Is that a fine enough point?

Reporter: Thank you, sir.

Jealous: All right, thank you.

Sure, most people can agree that Jealous would have been better off keeping his response PG and simply answering the question with a yes or no. But you can watch the video and see him chuckle after he finishes, making it clear he was not swearing at Cox so much as expressing frustration at being cast as a socialist. As part of his apology, Jealous also offered up the unambiguous type of answer Cox had been looking for. “I’m a venture capitalist, not a socialist,” he tweeted. “I have never referred to myself as a socialist nor would I govern as one.”

The whole mess obscures the far more interesting part of this, which is that Jealous, a chief surrogate for Bernie Sanders two years ago, is so adamantly rejecting the socialist label. Jealous has been consistent on that point, even as the term continues to gain traction on the left, particularly among younger Americans.

Given the term’s amorphous nature today—Sanders, the most well-known “democratic socialist” in the country, isn’t all that socialist by traditional standards—Jealous and other proud progressives like him have the luxury of defining the term however they want and then embracing it under that definition or rejecting it.

Jealous is calling for Medicare for All, a $15 minimum wage, and tuition-free college funded by ending mass incarceration. His progressive bona fides are not in doubt. And he made clear in the primary that he believes the best way to defeat Hogan, an extremely popular Republican in a blue state, is by running to the left as a way to mobilize disaffected liberals, especially voters of color. And yet here Jealous is reinforcing the assumption baked into the GOP attack and, to a lesser degree, Cox’s question: that socialism, however defined, is a dirty word. That makes a certain type of sense given that Republicans have long used the term to smear anyone and anything they deem insufficiently conservative. And it was Sanders’ embrace of the term that many pundits and politicos used to discount his chances in 2016.

Still, Jealous’ full-throated rejection puts him at odds with Sanders, who has endorsed his campaign, and with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the left’s newest hero, both of whom are eager to erase the word’s stigma. It’s a question more about politics than policy, but branding exercises matter in elections, and as spontaneous as Jealous’ profanity may have been, his rejection is a deliberate decision. That’s far more important than his uttering the F-word.

          Archbishop makes plea to remember Ukraine’s ‘silent and forgotten war’      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Baltimore, Md., Aug 9, 2018 / 05:00 pm (CNA).- Four years of fighting in eastern Ukraine have led to “the biggest humanitarian crisis on the European continent since the end of the Second World War,” according to the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.

Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk of Kyiv called on the international community and the Catholic Church not to neglect the crisis in Ukraine. He made the plea during his keynote address at the Knights of Columbus convention in Baltimore on August 7.

Since Russia annexed Crimea in 2014, the Ukrainian conflict has taken the lives of more than 10,000 people and has left 1.6 million people displaced, according to the United Nations.

“Besides all these casualties and human tragedies, there is still another hidden danger of the war in eastern Ukraine: This region is at risk of suffering a dire, long-lasting ecological catastrophe due to flooded mines and contaminated drinking water, which is comparable in scale to the Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster of 1986,” warned the archbishop.

“As many as 4 million people might be left without safe drinking water in the region,” he continued, “all of this is happening right now, in Ukraine, the largest country in Europe.”

The fighting has also damaged basic infrastructure. The World Health Organization documented  multiple attacks on Ukraine’s hospitals between 2014 and 2016.

“This is a silent and forgotten war. Because it is a ‘frozen conflict,’ no one speaks loudly about the war in Ukraine anymore,” said the archbishop.

Although a standing cease-fire exists in Ukraine, it was violated over 1,200 times in one week in July, reported the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s Special Monitoring mission in Ukraine.

“Many specialists nowadays call this war in Ukraine a ‘hybrid war,’ that is, a war where not only traditional weapons are used on battlefields, but where all means of destruction, including economic and information warfare, are employed,” explained the archbishop, “Thanks to information technologies, modern wars are not limited to specific territories.”

“Everyone in the Western world today experiences the consequences of this information war, which targets truth by disseminating ‘fake news’ and molding public opinion according to dishonest goals. Unfortunately, not even your country or other developed countries in Western Europe have been spared from these attacks. Please remember: it is not only our war — it is the war for humanity!” said Shevchuk.

The Catholic Response

“How does the Catholic Church in Ukraine, and in particular our Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, respond to the needs of the millions of people suffering from the consequences of war?” Shevchuk asked the Knights of Columbus.

The archbishop’s response was “diakonia,” the Greek New Testament term for charitable service. In the case of Ukraine, “diakonia” entails “serving to one’s neighbor, taking care of those afflicted by the war, by providing them with spiritual guidance and often with social service as well,” he said.

“Charity is an antidote to egoism and indifference. I would say that charity is also a key to understanding the success of the Knights of Columbus in Ukraine,” he continued.

The Knights of Columbus are a relatively new presence in Ukraine. The country’s first Knights of Columbus council was established five years ago -- just before Russia’s invasion of Crimea.

Today the Knights in Ukraine have dedicated much of their charitable efforts to aiding local civilians affected by the violence in the Donbas region of Eastern Ukraine.

The Ukrainian Knights of Columbus organize summer rehabilitation camps for wounded soldiers, war veterans, and their families. They regularly visit the wounded in hospitals, fundraise for first aid equipment, and provide the disabled with free wheelchairs. One Knights of Columbus council in southeastern Ukraine runs a Christian youth summer camp for children living in immediate proximity to the combat zone.

“Our society probably does not yet realize the full scale of trauma caused by the war and that is why we, as a Church and as Knights of Columbus, need to invest so much of our energy and resources into the field of rehabilitation, in order to be able to heal the wounds of our people,” said Shevchuk.

Catholics are a minority in Ukraine, most of the local population are Orthodox Christians. The archbishop said that he was encouraged to see how both Roman and Greek Catholics work together in the Knights of Columbus. He said it shows “a wonderful example of the unity of the Catholic Church in Ukraine, so much needed in Ukrainian society today.”

On August 7, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko over the phone, reassuring him of U.S. support for Ukraine’s “sovereignty and territorial integrity,” according to State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert.

A few weeks earlier, the State Department released the Crimea Declaration calling on Russia to to end its occupation of Crimea, saying, “The United States rejects Russia’s attempted annexation of Crimea and pledges to maintain this policy until Ukraine’s territorial integrity is restored.”

In the meantime, the Knights of Columbus in Ukraine will continue to aid the those suffering from the violence.

With no answers for Freddie Gray's death and Baltimore, Maryland in flames, the counsel of El Hajj Malik El Shabazz would be appreciated. 50yrs. years ago, Minister Malcolm foretold a year of violent eruptions in response to White Terrorism. 2015 and 1965 have many similarities. Last week's session described Minister Malcolm's return to the United States. He stressed that he no longer branded all Whites as Racist; his travels abroad revealed that there were White Muslims who did not oppose Justice, black people. His impending murder infects the last chapters of the text, where Min. Malcolm acknowledges the closeness of death. Alex Haley provided insightful post-script details as well. We'll surmise this landmark work and exchange our concluding assessments. As we continue, listeners are advised to keep this text in mind when searching for patience to share with black people.

Half of the accused officers are black, and a black officer (Caesar Goodson Jr.) is facing the most severe charge - second-degree "depraved heart" murder. Cleveland, Ohio residents salivate over a possible return to the NBA Finals while simultaneously preparing for potential melees in response to the Michael Brelo verdict; Brelo is the lone Cleveland officer facing criminal charges for a 2012 shooting that left two unarmed black people dead and at least 137 shots fired. Ferguson smoldered in response to Michael Brown Jr.'s killing, there's been far less attention and rage for the alleged horrors of Homer G. Phillips Hospital.

There's no indication on when - or if - a re-trial will be scheduled or how this will influence the five remaining trials. In Chicago, Illinois Suspected Race Soldier Jason Van Dyke was indicted for the murder of 17-year-old Laquan MacDonald; he'll be arraigned later this month. Whites are offering heaps of rhetoric about improving the criminal justice system as a result of these cases; in New York they agreed to reform the practice of solitary confinement - they did not commit to eliminating this custom. Beyond their highfalutin words, pathological White patterns and practices remain. A Northern California prison was indicted for an "entrenched culture" of Racism and violence that one victim described as having a "KKK... feeling". On a good note, Serena Williams was branded the 2015 Sportsperson of the Year by Sports Illustrated. Many White Supremacists were disgusted that the black tennis titan won the award over a horse.

Dear Michele,

Girls and boys have fled with their parents from Myanmar into Bangladesh. But, almost 3,000 of these children are without their parents. Whose priority are they? I can’t help but think, how can we help?
For the last 8 years, families have fled Syria–half of them children. As a father, as a Catholic, as a fellow human being–it doesn’t matter whether the children are next door or around the world. They need shelter, they need love, they need stability.
These children need to feel like kids again–to have someone look out for themto play, to laugh, to learn.
Give a gift today, and you help vulnerable children around the world receive counseling, have protected places to play, receive nourishing food, gain the chance to visit a doctor and thrive for years to come. By putting them first, you provide hope for their futures–and all of our futures.
Peace and light,

          The C.O.W.S. Compensatory Call-In 07/23/16      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Context of White Supremacy hosts the weekly Compensatory Call-In. We encourage non-white listeners to dial in with their codified concepts, new terms, observations, research findings, workplace problems or triumphs, and/or suggestions on how best to Replace White Supremacy With Justice ASAP. We'll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people. We'll examine news reports from the past seven days and - hopefully - promote a constructive dialog. #ANTIBLACKNESS The summer of Purge-like barbarism continued with three enforcement officials in Louisiana being gunned down Sunday morning. The alleged sniper, Gavin Long, a 29-year-old black male, was reportedly shot dead on the scene. Law enforcement bragged that it was a "hell of a shot" that extinguished Long's life. The following day, Lt. Brian Rice was found innocent in the death of Baltimore, Maryland's Freddie Gray. So far, no officers have been convicted for Gray's death. Numerous Whites are calling for prosecuting attorney Marilyn Mosby to be disbarred. As the attention on Racism and policing intensifies, Donald J. Trump was officially recognized as the Republican presidential nominee during the week-long convention in Cleveland. Trump conjured the spirit of former president Richard Nixon with a call for "Law and Order" and an end to "political correctness." Victim of White Supremacy Leslie Jones, star of the Ghostbusters remake and one of the few Saturday Night Live casts members with melanin, was savagely terrorized via social media. Meanwhile, Facebook engineered a drone capable of transmitting internet access in Africa and India by firing a laser from the unmanned craft. #RacismIsNotAPrivilege INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

Clinton became the verified Democratic nominee for president at this week's national convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The former Secretary of State relied on enough black help - including the mothers of Sandra Bland, Jordan Davis, and Trayvon Martin - to build a brand new White House. Speaking of dead black people, all charges were dropped against the six officers accused of the 2015 death of Freddie Gray. Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby maintains that the lack of convictions do not exonerate the Baltimore Police Department. The summer of violence and ongoing black death became so extreme it compelled NBA legend Michael Jordan to respond publicly about Racism - many were unamused. Conversely, $40 Million Slave author William C. Rhoden decided to end his quarter-century tenure with the New York Times; he made a weekly habit of discussing Racism. #RacismIsNotAPrivilege INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

Simone Manuel made history becoming the first African American to win a gold medal in an individual swimming competition. More importantly, she used her well-earned spotlight to speak to the number one priority in the world, Racism. To coroberate her point, the Department of Justice authored yet another damning assessment of a United States police department; the DOJ specified how Freddie Gray's Baltimore Police terrorize and molest black citizens of Maryland. And since Whites don't need a badge or license to violate black people, Kouren-Rodney Bernard Thomas, 20, was branded a gun-toting hoodlum, shot and killed in North Carolina. Chad Copley has been arrested and charged with Thomas' murder. Speaking of White killers, the black inmate who allegedly attacked Dylann Roof, the terrorist who killed 9 at Mother Emanuel AME, received enough donations to secure his release from prison. Roof remains confined, facing the death penalty. #RacismIsNotAPrivilege INVEST in The COWS â?? http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p
          The C.O.W.S. THE SPOOK WHO SAT BY THE DOOR Part 5      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Context of White Supremacy hosts the fifth study session on Sam Greenlee's 1969 literary sensationl, The Spook Who Sat By The Door. The bestseller was adapted into a major motion picture in 1973 and remains a treasured examination of Racism. Greenlee died in 2014. The protagonist, Dan Freeman, becomes the first black agent at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Freeman acquires as much knowledge as possible in order to share his training and expertise with terrorized black people so that they can coordinate a counter-violence offensive against White Supremacy. Last week's session provided a well known, painful narrative of a black teen being killed by Chicago police. Freeman and his long time friend and police detective, Phil Dawson, argue over the efficacy of the "riots." Dawson minimizes the System of Racism and argues that "burning and looting" will do no good. Freeman reminds Dawson that victims of oppression always fight back and that Racists think of all black people - education or no - as niggers. Their conversation sounds like many of the conversations concerning Black Lives Matter and the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, Baltimore, Maryland and Charlotte, North Carolina. Freeman and the Cobras, his revolutionary black gang members, use the conflagration to begin their own campaign of counter-violence. We'll continue to monitor how anti-blackness is reflected in the text, and we'll note differences between the book and the film. #RacismIsNotAPrivilege INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p
          Twig Harper & Bill Nace - Live at Dreamland (Open Mouth, 2018) ****      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
By Nick Metzger

Live at Dreamland is a writhing, oozing, viscous specimen of electronic free improvisation by two of the Northeast-US’s true maestros. I first became aware of guitarist Bill Nace through his Vampire Belt collaboration with Chris Corsano. YouTube videos of their early shows prompted me to mail-order their first two self-produced CDRs and I’ve been a fan of their post-Blue Humans style clamor ever since. Besides Vampire Belt (and various Vampire Belt + 1 configurations), Nace has worked with a diverse cast of talent ranging from his collaborations with the Italian psych jazz powerhouse Jooklo Duo to Body/Head, to his free guitar duo with Kim Gordon, to his collaboration with the poet and writer Charles Plymell on Apocalypse Rose. He also runs Open Mouth Records, which has released fantastic music in ultra-limited editions for well over a decade now. Contemporary psychonaut Twig Harper (formerly of Nautical Almanac) is originally from the same 90's noise/total music scene that produced Wolf Eyes and Andrew W.K. among others. Following his relocation to West Baltimore he established Tarantula Hill which hosts local bands and serves as the headquarters for his isolation tank business. If you’re not familiar with Harper’s work, his Intuitive American Esoterica trilogy is a great place to start. The two men toured together last year, this record being a documentation of their performance at Louisville’s sadly-since-closed Dreamland venue (recorded by the most-affable Tim Barnes).

The piece begins with a swelling tape loop over which percussive noises and disembodied moans intermingle. Bowed guitar joins as the vocalizations intensify and are stretched out and modulated via Harper’s homemade electronics into an impenetrable kaleidoscope of sound. About half way through the first side the piece slows and becomes more introspective, alternating between drone and silence. Nace then goes in a more direct path, providing metallic popping noises and string scrapes. Harper runs eerie swells over which his electronics jot out their weird logic. Low tones close the first side over a wash of tape delay and feedback. The second half finds our heroes beginning with what sounds like tape loops of breaking glass being eaten by the tape machine. Shaking bells create a ritualistic vibe over which Harper pushes the delay feedback into the red. All of this action throws up a miasma of residual sounds that builds up into a din before succeeding into a section of contemplative drone and scattered echoing horrors. The guitar scrapings coalesce with the specters that Harper has conjured, whirring and humming into silence. Harper provides aftershocks in the form of several jarring electronic spasms, bringing the set to a close.

Harper and Nace are an interesting pairing given their respective sound palettes, and it’s a little hard to discern who is doing what on this recording at times but that’s not really important. What is important is that it’s a nicely done, well recorded album that documents an interesting coupling of musicians, performing in a fantastic venue, during its final days. RIP Dreamland, you are sorely missed.

Whites made time for documentaries, articles, retrospectives and commentary on the lawless negro chaos that followed the acquittal of four Race Soldiers who bludgeoned Rodney King, who died in 2012. Many submit that the Los Angeles Police Department has improved dramatically over the last 25 years. This is also the second anniversary of Freddie Gray's 2015 death and the subsequent unrest in Baltimore, Maryland. Simultaneously, New York City and other regions debuted body cameras for officers this week, so that each traffic stop, arrest, and shooting will be archived. France's Marine Le Pen qualified for May's runoff election to determine the country's next president. The greatest tennis player in the world, Serena Williams, publicized her pregnancy only to be Racially Terrorized. Ilie Nastase, former top-ranked player and current Fed Cup captain, speculated about the amount of melanin Williams's child will have - the father is White. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

          Blue Jays Announcers Say The Red Sox "Took A Lot Of Heat" For Signing J.D. Martinez      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
How annoyed was I by all the crap during Tuesday's NESN broadcast? I realized, in the interest of my short-term sanity, I should listen to the Blue Jays' feed, with Buck Martinez and Pat Tabler, on Wednesday.

Although Martinez and Tabler praised every facet of the Red Sox team and organization for three hours, it was dreadful. Martinez's nasal whine is something you never get used to and Tabler's analysis invariably devolves into an aural instruction manual on how to play the game. But they did say a few amazing things while the Red Sox were pounding out 10 runs:
1. The MVP doesn't just have the best stats or is the best player. He's the most valuable.

2. The "analytical world" discounts the value of the stolen base.

3. The Red Sox took a lot of heat for signing J.D. Martinez.

4. A player with an OPS of .800 or higher is a "superstar".
T2, Jackie Bradley at the plate:
Buck Martinez: And that's the beauty of this Red Sox ball club. You can shut down their big guys, but there are enough bats in this lineup to do a lot of damage.

Pat Tabler: And that's why I think J.D. Martinez is going to get a lot of votes for the MVP. It depends on how you define MVP and what he means to a team. It's not just the guy with the best stats or the best player. It's the guy who is the most valuable, and by him going into this lineup, it's made everybody around him better and they've got some really good hitters at the bottom of the lineup now. ... That was the one thing missing from the Boston Red Sox last year, was that run producer in the middle of the lineup. Right now, they are the best hitting team in the American League. [Bradley walks]

Martinez: Yeah, and you know this, having been a player. When you have that horse in your lineup, everybody kind of defers to him. They say, well, okay, if we get in a jam, J.D. will take care of us. If we get up against a tough pitcher, J.D. will take care of us. Really takes a lot of pressure off the rest of the lineup.

Tabler: I remember that like it was yesterday, in 1992, when Dave Winfield came over here. That was the type of influence he had on the team, exactly the same kind that J.D. Martinez has had on the Red Sox this year.

Martinez: David Ortiz was that guy for so many years for the Red Sox. Of course, he didn't play last year and they really missed that presence. 1-0 to Eduardo Nunez. Bradley is perfect this season in steal attempts, he's 11-for-11. As I mentioned on the pre-game show, this is another aspect of the Red Sox that people were overlooking, their ability to steal bases.

Tabler: Yesterday, going into that game, they were tied for the league lead with 87. They picked up a couple more yesterday.

Martinez: The analytical world discounts the value of the stolen base, but having been a former catcher, I can tell you - it's a distraction. It's a distraction for the pitcher, the catcher, and the middle infielders. Everybody's got to keep an eye on Jackie Bradley Jr.
Tabler's explanation - the Most Valuable Player is the most valuable player - is not helpful.

When things look bleak, other Red Sox hitters are saying "J.D. will take care of us"? I do not believe that for a micro-second.

The analytical world does not discount the value of the stolen base. That is nonsense. Theo Epstein is happy to tell you there is a place for the stolen base in the modern game. But, as with bunting, the risk in many cases is not worth the reward. This FanGraphs article states that "stolen bases are only beneficial if they are swiped with roughly a 75% success rate":
This number stems from looking at a run expectancy chart and comparing the difference in expected runs after a successful stolen base and the difference in expected runs after a failed attempt. ... Of course the break-even point is not the same for every situation. Previous studies have shown this required success rate drops as the game moves into the later innings and increases the further a team is down by ...
I'm a huge supporter of "the analytical world" and I love the fact that the Red Sox run. They do it smartly and that shows in their high success rate.

T5, Mookie Betts leading off:
Martinez: Boston, the first team to record 80 wins this season. They were also the first team to have 80 wins in 2009.
No, they were not.

The 2009 Red Sox won their 80th game on September 8. At that point, four other teams had already won more than 80 games, including the Yankees with 90. Before 2018, the last time the Red Sox were the first team to 80 wins was 2007, when they were 80-51 on August 26.
Still T5:
Martinez: We mentioned the 80-34 record, the franchise's best winning percentage all-time. And they are projected to have 114 wins. Been a long time since they've gotten off to this great start.
Yes, never before is certainly a long time. Also, can 114 games be considered "a start" of a season?

Still T5:
Martinez: This is the guy, J.D. Martinez, signed as a free agent and - the Red Sox took a lot of heat for signing him. Like, really? We don't need his bat. Boy, do you ever need his bat. And the difference is dramatic.

Tabler: It was late, too, wasn't it?

Martinez: Real late.

Tabler: Late in the off-season.

Martinez: February, yep. Nobody wanted to step up.
Who with any connection to the Red Sox - from John Henry all the way down to seven-year-old fans - said of J.D. Martinez: "We don't need his bat"? And the organization took heat for signing him? When? Where? Who? ... Maybe other teams in the AL were pissed that a division winner for the last two seasons had now added a great hitter to its lineup, but that's about it.

They also seem to fault the Red Sox for not "stepping up" earlier to sign JDM. Dave Dombrowski's waiting game was an off-the-charts success because the Red Sox were able to get Martinez for about $100 million less than what he was reportedly looking for/expecting. This was one of the biggest stories of the winter - and Martinez and Tabler get it wrong from every possible angle.
B4, Devon Travis leading off:
Martinez: He got off to a slow start and was eventually sent back to the minor leagues. ... Since he's come back from AAA, Pat, he's been a very consistent hitter.

Tabler: And I love the OPS. His on-base plus his slugging. Up over .800. That's superstar territory right there. If you have a second baseman with an OPS of .800 or better, you've got a really good player.
Tabler considers a player with an .800 OPS a "superstar"? Going into last night's games, there were 63 players in the major leagues with an OPS of .800 or higher. That seems like an excessive amount of "superstars" to me.

Among MLB second basemen, there were five with an OPS over .800 and another two above .790. Could there be five (or seven) second basemen that qualify as superstars? If seven, that would mean that roughly one out of every four teams has a superstar at second base. Not just a really good player, or a star, or an All-Star, but a "superstar".

In May, Bill James posted an article titled "So what is a Superstar, zactly?"
You can make a relatively clear determination as to how many players in baseball are considered "stars". It's 2 to 5 per team. It is very clear, from the way that the word is used, that every team has stars. Baltimore has not been winning a lot of games this year, but you can still say who the stars of the team are (Manny Machado and Adam Jones). ...

An announcer will say about an opposing team that "There are a lot of stars on their roster" or "there are not many stars on this team", but he will very rarely say that there are NO stars on the team. ... The number of "stars" per team has to be somewhere between 2 and 5, so let's say that it is 3 or 4.

I'm not trying to tell you how many players should be considered stars; I am merely observing how the term is used. If you want to say "That is too many players to be considered stars; there should only be about 20 players in baseball considered 'true stars',", that's fine, but what you are really saying is that "I want to define the word differently than everybody else uses it." Define it however you want, but don't expect other people to pay attention to you.

If there are 3 or 4 stars per team, that means 90 to 120 in baseball. Let's say 100. If we have 100 "stars" in baseball, and 7 players who are superstars [this info from more than 2,000 fans in a poll James conducted], then we have an answer to one of the questions which causes confusion in this discussion: What percentage of stars should be considered superstars? It's about 7%. My best guess.

Having reached that realization, I then thought that maybe it would be fun to draw up a list of who exactly was a superstar at each moment in baseball history.
I love it: "maybe it would be fun". ... James quickly realizes that the number of superstars "has to be more like 15%". The entire article is, as you might expect, extremely interesting.

Part One It's 7:12 a.m. on Wednesday morning and Crystal Harden-Lindsey rolls into the parking lot of Green Street Academy in West Baltimore, which she has headed since 2012. Today is a big day: School's back in session after shutting down all day yesterday in the face of protests and unrest. Harden-Lindsey, who's 35 and grew up in East Baltimore, knows her kids are going to have lots of questions; a few of them were texting with her yesterday, sending her their cellphone videos of the looted stores and burned buildings. It helps that she knows where they're coming from. Harden-Lindsey has roots in this city. She grew up across town, right around North Rose and East Monument streets. Her grandmother lives right by

The landmark Denver Post building stands out and stands proudly, one of its home city's defining civic structures downtown, along with the seats of city and state government nearby. In the building's lobby, words spell out the mission of the paper and its corporate parent, Digital First Media. Words such as: Report. Record. Investigate. Illuminate. Journalism. While Digital First Media still operates on upper floors, none of those things happen in the Denver Post building. The Post has left. And that's no longer exceptional. The Baltimore Sun , owned by the Tronc company, this week became just the latest newspaper moving out of its historic building downtown to work in far cheaper digs. What journalists find galling in Colorado: a round of layoffs last fall was accompanied by the announcement of the newsroom's move to the paper's printing plant in the suburbs. Management officials said the moves would stave off future layoffs. That was in November. Then, in March, Digital First laid

Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit ARI SHAPIRO, HOST: The violence in Chicago has been getting a lot of coverage this week. Over the weekend, more than 70 people were shot. So you might be surprised to learn that the homicide rate in Chicago is not the highest in the U.S. According to the most recent FBI data from 2016, Chicago came in number nine among U.S. cities of a quarter million people or more. To talk about how Chicago fits into the broader national picture of gun violence and homicide, Thomas Abt of the Harvard Kennedy School of Government joins us now. Welcome. THOMAS ABT: It's a pleasure to be here. SHAPIRO: If the problem is not worst in Chicago, where is it worst when you look at U.S. cities? ABT: There are a few cities that are sort of perennially at the top of the list in terms of per capita murder rates. St. Louis is currently the nation's murder capital. But cities like Baltimore, Detroit and New Orleans are always near the top. SHAPIRO: And are we talking about

          PADEP says we'll do better to cut Chesapeake pollution       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Storm mess in Annapolis
Scott Dance reports for the Baltimore Sun

Pennsylvania officials on Tuesday conceded to Maryland Gov. 
Larry Hogan and other state leaders in the Chesapeake Bay watershed that the Commonwealth has not done its part to reduce pollution washing into waterways.
Patrick McDonnell, Pennsylvania’s secretary of environmental protection, said that will change as a target to restore Chesapeake ecosystems by 2025 approaches.
“We are committed and developing a plan that gets us to 2025,” he told the Chesapeake Executive Council, a group that oversees the federal Chesapeake Bay Program, at a meeting in Fells Point.
“We are clearly behind,” he said. “But we’ve taken that as an opportunity to double down.”
The promise came a week after Hogan publicly criticized Pennsylvania and New York for sending a deluge of debris and pollution down the Susquehanna River during recent flooding.
Hogan and McDonnell avoided trading barbs at the council’s annual meeting, which brings together the governors of the six bay watershed states, the mayor of Washington and Environmental Protection Agency officials. Both men said Tuesday’s meeting was productive, and that they hoped it would guide continued improvements in Chesapeake ecology.
“The fact that we have an open dialogue with our upstream neighbors is a positive first step,” Hogan said.
The Chesapeake has posted improving scores in recent years on report cards rating indicators such as underwater grass growth, dissolved oxygen levels and populations of rockfish and blue crabs. That progress has led environmentalists and scientists to declare that efforts of the state-federal bay program partnership are working.
But recently released data through the midpoint of a cleanup effort launched in 2010 show Pennsylvania is far from reaching goals for reducing nitrogen and sediment, and is also falling short of a goal for phosphorus reduction.
The data show Maryland and Virginia have missed goals in some areas, too — including targets to reduce the amount of nitrogen runoff coming from farms.

Parts of Baltimore are smoldering after violent demonstrations last night, the latest in a string of flare-ups between protestors and police across the country. Closer to home, Albany Police are taking a close look at their use of stun guns after a second incident this month in which a black man suffered a medical issue after being Tased by police. On April 2, 39-year old Donald "Dontay" Ivy died after an encounter with police near his Arbor Hill home after he was subdued with a stun gun. That incident is under investigation by the District Attorney. The second tasing incident involved a 21-year-old city man, wanted by authorities, as he was taken into custody. Police say Jamarl Townsend was wanted for questioning in connection with an August 2014 shooting. Townsend was spotted in a vehicle last weekend in the 300 block of First Street. As an officer approached, Townsend allegedly exited the car and tried to run away. Police say he ignored warnings to stop and was subsequently tased.

"The fact remains that the vast majority(yes, I stand by vast) of polling as well as general and anecdotal information has shown that between 80-90% of world Jewry (excluding the Jews in Iran who are not free to express Zionism without severe repercussions) identify as and support the right of Israel to exist as a Jewish nation." duhbaker By the way , general or anecdotal evidence is not evidence in any normal court.In ziosville , perhaps. http://baltimorechronicle.com/2010/010710Lendman.html Hasbara fail Yossi.

          Comment on Second Amendment Foundation, National Rifle Association sue Edmonds over gun storage rule by Linda Mae      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Vanity Fair, NPR, New Republic, and Politico, are the very essence of leftist "Fake News". No one wants to see "carnage" in our schools or anywhere else. The "gun" does not do the shooting; the "bad person" does the shooting. We should get rid of "bad people". We are not taking actions to rid this country of "bad people". You may not take my gun or tell me that it cannot be in my home at the ready because, you do not want to take the decisive action to get rid of these "bad people". There are facts of past troubles, on watch list, and information that almost each and every "bad person" who were school shooters, that were ignored. The correlation between "progressive/leftist" ideology and the US cities that represent this ideology, i.e., Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore, Oakland, Stockton, proves that these crumbling, crime-ridden, cities are being destroyed by this failing ideology. This ideology bans straws; they do not go after people who have a history of violent crime. They tout (Seattle) that their juvenile detention numbers are falling, because they do not hold them, but set them free. London is beginning to ban knives! The "lockup of guns" illegally voted on, and passed in Edmonds is just the beginning. No, we do not want this ideology in Edmonds.

He retired the first two batters, then walked Mark Belanger, Dave May & Don Buford. Manager Gil Hodges came out 7 took the ball from Gentry, bringing in young fire ball throwing; Nolan Ryan.

Ryan served up a fastball to Paul Blair that he ripped to the right center field gap. Once again Agee got on his horse and made a sliding diving grab, saving at least two of the runs from scoring.

INDIANAPOLIS — The Society of Professional Journalists has chosen José Luis Benavides, professor of journalism at California State University, Northridge, as the recipient of the Distinguished Teaching in Journalism Award.

Each year, SPJ honors an outstanding journalism educator who has made an exceptional contribution to the profession and/or journalism education. Benavides won this year with detailed letters of support from faculty and students in the Department of Journalism at CSUN who lauded Benavides for how deeply he cares for his students and their work.

“[Benavides] founded the department’s student-run Spanish language multimedia site, El Nuevo Sol,” Department of Journalism Chair Linda Bowen wrote in a nomination letter. “Many of the students he has mentored are the first in their families to attend college and are working more than 40 or more hours a week … His ability to connect with and inspire them to believe in themselves has literally changed hundreds of our students’ lives.”

After noticing an industry trend of many internships being unpaid, Benavides worked with the Latino Journalists, a club he founded, to raise money for students who worked in unpaid internships. He and his organization were able to raise over $5,000 to help students gain internship experience who otherwise would not have had the opportunity.

Benavides graduated from the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico in 1985. He then received his master’s degree in journalism from the University of Texas at Austin in 1989 and graduated with his Ph.D. in interdisciplinary studies from UT Austin in 1997.

Outside the classroom, Benavides has helped inform and educate members of his journalism community, serving as a panelist for local SPJ chapter events and presenting data on diversity to the editorial staff of the Los Angeles Daily News.

Benavides will be honored at the Excellence in Journalism 2018 conference in Baltimore, Maryland, Sept. 27-29.

SPJ promotes the free flow of information vital to informing citizens; works to inspire and educate the next generation of journalists; and fights to protect First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and press. Support excellent journalism and fight for your right to know. Become a member, give to the Legal Defense Fund, or give to the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation.

I didn't have a toddler when I lived in LA but I do now. I can't think of a thing we do (except, yes, zoo two or three times a year) that can't be done in LA. Parks, libraries, swimming at pools and beach, play dates, easy "hikes", camping, movies, farmers markets, day trips to different neighborhoods. How exactly are you entertaining your toddler?


Oh many LA neighborhoods have all those of course! Not particularly worse than your average run of the mill city really. The Bay Area is probably worse based on talking to friends who live there and having visited a few times.



I grew up in San Diego so we had a world class zoo and the surrounding Balboa Park with its multiple museums, the Wild Animal Park (now called the Safari Park), Sea World, of course endless beach options and just an hour from mountain camping and just under two hours to desert camping. If you have a boat you’ve got both Mission Bay and San Diego Bay to explore. LA is pretty weak in comparison.



We live in the Baltimore area now and so we have 15 mins away a not large zoo but much nicer than the LA one, the National Aquarium 20 mins away, the national mall with all the Smithsonian museums in DC that makes a nice half day or full day and since we are on the north side of the city endless small state parks with hikes in the woods. Again a lot more options than LA and in general much easier to access - even DC since its rail system is much more intelligently laid out.



Anywho I guess my point is that for a “big city” that LA is pretty underwhelming as far as kids friendly activities go (I’m excluding the amusement parks such as Disney and Knotts since they are very expensive and typically extremely crowded as well not to mention no educational aspect at all compared to museums/zoos/aquariums/hikes).



The weather is of course delightful which is a big plus in getting outside with kids though!

          St. Brown feiert starkes Packers-Debüt - No-Name überrascht Pats       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In der NFL hat die Preseason begonnen und die Deutschen mischen gleich zu Beginn mit. 

Im ersten Vorbereitungsspiel der Green Bay Packers gegen die Tennessee Titans (31:17) kam Wide Receiver Equanimeous St. Brown direkt zum Einsatz. Vier Pässe für insgesamt 61 Yards konnte der in der sechsten Runde gedraftete 21-Jährige fangen - und sich direkt für die weitere Saison empfehlen.

Vor allem ein Catch über 28 Yards hinterließ einen guten Eindruck.

Bei den Packers, bei denen Quarterback-Superstar Aaron Rodgers nur auf der Bank saß, wechselten sich die Ersatz-Spielmacher ab. Dabei zeigte vor allem Brett Hundley eine stark verbesserte Performance im Vergleich zum Vorjahr.

Während die meisten Starter noch nicht mitmischten, machte Receiver Davante Adams eindrücklich klar, dass er sich bereits in Top-Form befindet und dass sich der Nachwuchs an ihm messen lassen muss.

Webb empfiehlt sich für Patriots

Einen guten Saisonstart legten auch die New England Patriots hin. Gegen die Washington Redskins gewann das Team von Trainer Bill Belichik mit 26:17, dabei hatten die Pats bereits mit 0:17 in Rückstand gelegen.

Besonders erfolgreich verlief die Partie für Running Back Ralph Webb. Dem Rookie der Pats gelangen zwei Touchdowns. Der Undraftet Free Agent war zudem bei zwei Two-Point-Conversions erfolgreich. Er selbst konnte sein Glück nach der Partie kaum fassen.

"Ich habe mein ganzes Leben dafür gearbeitet, um hierher zu kommen und die Chance zu haben, mich zu beweisen, so der 23-Jährige. Bei den Patriots, die aktuell auf der Running-Back-Position nicht allzu üppig besetzt sind, könnte Webb eine neue Alternative werden.

Nzeocha gelingen zwei Tackles

Auch für Mark Nzeocha ist der Start in die Preseason erfolgreich verlaufen. Zum einen konnten die San Francisco 49ers einen 0:14-Rückstand noch in einen 24:21-Sieg verwandeln. Zum anderen gelangen dem Deutschen zwei Tackles. 

Trotz einer Ellbogen-Verletzung, die er sich vor einigen Tagen zugezogen hatte, konnte der 28-Jährige spielen.

Böhringer mit Einsatz bei Bengals

Bei den Cincinnati Bengals spielt seit dieser Saison auch Moritz Böhringer. Der Deutsche kam im ersten Testspiel gegen die Chicago Bears zwar zum Einsatz, eine nennenswerte Aktion gelang ihm jedoch nicht. 

Die Bengals gewannen das Spiel mit 30:27.

Keine Minute auf dem Feld gab es dagegen für Christopher Ezeala. Der Fullback der Baltimore Ravens durfte beim 33:7-Sieg gegen die Los Angeles Rams nur zuschauen.

Luck wieder zurück

Eine gute Nachricht gab es auch für alle Fans der Indianapolis Colts zu vermelden. Quarterback Andrew Luck stand zum ersten Mal seit 2016 wieder auf dem Feld und führte sein Team gegen die Seattle Seahawks zu einem 19:17-Erfolg. 

Insgesamt brachte er sechs Pässe für 64 Yards an den Mann.

Gio Gonzalez pitched seven strong innings and earned his first victory since May 28 to help the Washington Nationals defeat the Atlanta Braves 6-3 Thursday to secure a four-game split.

The Nationals moved within 5 1/2 games of idle Philadelphia in the National League East. The Braves fell a game behind the Phillies.

Gonzalez (7-8) snapped a personal seven-game losing streak and had gone 11 consecutive starts without a victory. He allowed three hits and one walk while striking out three. Nick Markakis' solo homer to lead off the second was the lone run he allowed.

Atlanta starter Anibal Sanchez pitched two scoreless innings but left after getting hit in the left calf by a grounder from Michael Taylor.

He was replaced by Wes Parsons (0-1), who yielded a bases-loaded walk to Juan Soto and a sacrifice fly by Anthony Rendon as Washington went ahead.

Taylor homered to left in the fourth to bump Washington's lead to 3-1, and Daniel Murphy added an RBI double in the sixth.

Ronald Acuna Jr.'s one-out homer in the eighth pulled Atlanta within two runs, but the Nationals got RBIs from Ryan Zimmerman and Matt Reynolds in the bottom of the inning to make it 6-2.

Washington outfielder Bryce Harper was scratched from the lineup with right knee soreness. Atlanta reliever Dan Winkler hit Harper just below the right knee in the seventh inning on Wednesday night. Nationals manager Dave Martinez said X-rays on Harper were negative.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Braves: 3B Johan Camargo was out of the starting lineup for the first time since July 14. He struck out as a pinch hitter to end the game. Charlie Culberson filled in at third for Camargo.

Nationals: Martinez said RHP Stephen Strasburg (cervical nerve impingement) will throw at least one more bullpen session before the team decides whether he is ready for a minor league rehabilitation start. Strasburg has not pitched for Washington since July 20.

UP NEXT

Braves: RHP Kevin Gausman (0-1, 5.40 ERA) makes his second start since his acquisition from Baltimore as Atlanta returns home to open a three-game series with Milwaukee.

Nationals: Washington begins a three-game series in Chicago against the Cubs with RHP Jeremy Hellickson (5-2, 3.56) getting the nod.

          Improving Educational Outcomes       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Mavis Sanders, PhD, is on a mission to improve literacy and overall educational outcomes in underserved communities of color in Baltimore and beyond. That mission took on new life at Barnard, where she served as a budding high school teaching intern in the Bronx. “I’ve always loved children and I’ve always loved learning,” Sanders says. “But I never thought about a career in urban education until I discovered Barnard’s [urban teaching] program.”

Today, Sanders is the inaugural director of the Sherman Center for Early Learning in Urban Communities at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). She is building a program deeply rooted in the community it serves, drawing upon research she conducts with her students about collaborations among schools, families, and communities. Having served previously as a professor of education and research scientist at Baltimore’s Johns Hopkins University for sixteen years, Sanders is now also a professor of education at UMBC.

The Birmingham, Alabama native was raised to appreciate the importance of the kind of interpersonal connections she studies. In her close-knit neighborhood, there was always a sense of the collective. While many programs aimed at improving educational outcomes are strictly data-driven, the Sherman Center takes a different approach. Instead of using a one-size-fits-all template to implement agendas, the Center teams up with schools, families, and communities to develop more effective early-education practices for urban schools. “We get input from principals, parents, educators, and researchers to create an interactive approach to educational improvement,” Sanders explains. “It’s an authentic partnership built on collaboration and communication.”

Sanders’s path has never strayed far from education. Once she earned her degree at Barnard, she joined the Peace Corps and spent two years teaching English in Papua New Guinea. She went on to Stanford, where she earned her master’s degree in sociology and, in 1992, a PhD in social sciences, policy, and educational practices. That led her to JHU, where she designed and directed a graduate certificate program focused on collaborative leadership for schools, families, and communities. Her sixteen years at JHU, where she worked extensively with Dr. Joyce Epstein, director of the Center on School, Family, and Community Partnerships and the National Network of Partnership Schools, were “career defining,” she says. “The theory and research that guided our work then guide me still. For us, ‘It takes a village’ to improve learning experiences and outcomes for all students is not just a hackneyed phrase—it is an educational-reform approach.”

Sanders has authored or co-authored more than sixty journal articles and book chapters, enabling schools to strengthen curricula and implement the collaborative programs she designs to ensure African Americans’ academic success. Sanders sees her current work as only the beginning of an effort to pioneer educational best practices. “As we scale up,” she says, “I hope that the Sherman Center can be a model for other programs. Our goal is to find the best ways to inspire and prepare young children in urban schools for lifelong learning.” •

          The Glenelg Hate Crime      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
On July 13, 2018, a grand jury indicted four teens in Glenelg, Maryland on seven counts of vandalism and hate crimes.

 In May they were identified on the security cam of Glenelg High School writing swastikas and racist, anti-Semitic, and homophobic slurs everywhere on school property, "on sidewalks, trash cans, bricks, and out-buildngs."



Some were directed at Glenelg principal David Burton.

The boys, all 18, were about to graduate.  They are all from different towns: Mt. Airy, Brookeville, Ellicott City, and Woodbine.  They were  all on the baseball or football team, or both.  One is a wrestler.

A standard story about privileged jocks expressing their hatred of minority groups.

In 2016, 5,479 hate crimes were reported to the FBI.  About 59% targeted race or ethnicity, 21% sexual orientation or gender identity, and 19% religion.

Of course, the actual number is much higher.  Most victims don't report, fearing further victimization (between 20% and 40% of victims of anti-gay hate crimes state that the police officers taking the report have laughed at them, used anti-gay slurs, told them that they deserved it, or lectured to them about the Book of Leviticus.

Plus many jurisdictions refuse to identify the incidents as hate crimes.  The State of Hawaii categorically denies that any hate crimes have ever occurred there.

The most common acts of anti-gay hate crime are vandalism and intimidation (acting as if you are going to attack someone).

Most anti-gay hate crime offenders are "proactive": they got up that morning with the plan of committing a homophobic hate crime.  "Reactive," where you see someone belonging to the target group and get angry, is less common but more violent.

Most offenders belief that almost everyone shares their hatred of the group, and that they are doing the community a service by "fighting back" against groups who they consider evil.

There are three interesting things about this case.

1. 90% of the articles mention only racist graffiti, erasing gay people even as targets of hate crimes.

2. The town rallied  in support of David Burton and other racial, religious, and sexual minorities, instead of dismissing the incident as "youthful hijinks."

3. Where the heck is Glenelg, and why is it drawing teens from all those other cities?

Glenelg sounds like part of the name got chopped off, but it's actually a town in Howard County, Maryland, about 25 miles from Baltimore. 





It has a wrestling and track team, but no swimming.

The student body is 9% African-American and 4% Asian.

There's a Gay-Straight Alliance.






          Several games see players demonstrate during national anthem      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Player demonstrations took place during the national anthem at several early NFL preseason games Thursday night.

In Philadelphia, Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins and cornerback De'Vante Bausby raised their fists during the anthem, and defensive end Chris Long placed his arm around Jenkins' shoulder. Jenkins had stopped his demonstration last December.

Defensive end Michael Bennett walked out of the tunnel during the anthem and walked toward the bench while it played. It appeared all the Steelers stood.

"Everybody is waiting for what the league is going to do," Jenkins said. "We won't let it stop what we stand for. I was very encouraged last year with the direction and that obviously took a different turn.

"I think it's important to utilize the platform as we can because for whatever reason, we have framed this demonstration in a negative light, and often players have to defend why we feel the need to fight for everyday Americans, and in actuality we're doing the right thing."

At Miami, Dolphins receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson and defensive end Robert Quinn protested during the anthem. Stills and Wilson kneeled behind teammates lined up standing along the sideline. Quinn stood and raised his right fist. There were no apparent protests by the Buccaneers.

"As a black man in this world, I've got an obligation to raise awareness," Quinn said. "If no one wants to live in unity, that's why we're in the situation we're in."

Stills kneeled during the anthem during the 2016-17 seasons and has been vocal discussing social injustice issues that inspired the protest movement by NFL players.

Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, a leader of the movement, tweeted support for Stills and Wilson.

"My brother @kstills continued his protest of systemic oppression tonight by taking a knee," the tweet said. "Albert Wilson joined him in protest. Stay strong brothers!"

And in Seattle, three Seahawks players ran into the team's locker room prior to the playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner."

Defensive linemen Branden Jackson and Quinton Jefferson, and offensive lineman Duane Brown left the field following team introductions and before the start of the anthem. They returned to the sideline immediately after it concluded. All three were among a group of Seattle players that sat during the anthem last season.

Brown and Jefferson said they intend to continue the action all season. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said the team discussed the topic and decided to support individual decisions. Brown said he didn't believe there had been much progress made from the demonstrations of last season.

"Everyone was clear on my decision and understands and supports it," Brown said. "We all have different realities in this country and they understand my perspective. We're all on good terms."

In Jacksonville, four Jaguars remained in the locker room during the national anthem, and team officials said it would be up to the players to explain why they weren't on the field. Cornerback Jalen Ramsey, linebacker Telvin Smith, and running backs Leonard Fournette and T.J. Yeldon joined teammates on the sideline after the anthem.

"As a man, I got certain beliefs," said Smith, who wore "Salute the Service" cleats. "You know what I mean? This is not going to become a distraction, and Jacksonville's not going to become a distraction for this team. I got beliefs. I did what I did. I don't know if it's going to be every week, can't answer if it's going to be every week.

"But as a man I've got to stand for something. I love my team, I'm dedicated to my teammates, and that's what we're talking about. I did what I did. It was love. I hope people see it and respect it. I respect views."

At Baltimore, both teams stood, but while most of the Ravens lined up shoulder to shoulder on the sideline, second-year linebacker Tim Williams stood alone in front of the bench with his back toward the field.

All of the players on each team at New England appeared to stand for the national anthem, some bowing their heads and others placing their hands on their hearts. The Patriots observed a moment of silence beforehand for Weymouth, Massachusetts, police officer Michael Chesna, who was killed last month in the line of duty.

The league and the players' union have yet to announce a policy for this season regarding demonstrations during the anthem after the league initially ordered everyone to stand on the sideline when "The Star-Spangled Banner" is played, or remain in the locker room.

"The NFL has been engaged in constructive discussions with the NFL Players Association regarding the anthem and issues of equality and social justice that are of concern to many Americans," league spokesman Brian McCarthy said in an email.

"While those discussions continue, the NFL has agreed to delay implementing or enforcing any club work rules that could result in players being disciplined for their conduct during the performance of the anthem.

"Meanwhile, there has been no change in the NFL's policy regarding the national anthem. The anthem will continue to be played before every game, and all player and non-player personnel on the field at that time are expected to stand during the presentation of the flag and performance of the anthem. Personnel who do not wish to do so can choose to remain in the locker room.

"We remain committed to working with the players to identify solutions and to continue making progress on important social issues affecting our communities."

          More Rain, More Development Spell Disaster For Some U.S. Cities      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
There's more rain falling on some parts of the U.S. than there used to be, and many towns just aren't ready for the flooding that follows. Ellicott City, Md., is one such community. Nestled in a valley west of Baltimore, the town was founded in 1772, and some Revolutionary War-era buildings still house businesses along the narrow main street in historic downtown. It also sits at the confluence of three streams . That downtown was largely destroyed by a flash flood in 2016. Main street was a raging river, tearing off awnings and sweeping away cars and dumpsters. Two people died. It took millions of dollars and more than a year of work to rebuild. Then, on Memorial Day weekend this year, just as many businesses were reopening, the same thing happened. A thunderstorm dropped about 8 inches of rain in three hours, the road became a river, and a man was killed . "This is our new normal," says Kevin Bloom, whose family has owned West End Service, a local commercial truck dealership, since
          Jake Bauers produce tres; Rays superan a Orioles      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

ST. PETERSBURG, Florida, EE.UU. Jake Bauers produjo dos de sus tres carreras mediante un sencillo que significó la ventaja en el séptimo inning, y los Rays de Tampa Bay superaron el jueves 5-4 a los Orioles de Baltimore.

El imparable decisivo de Bauer ante Cody Carroll (0-1) permitió que los Rays empataran un récord de la franquicia, al ganar por sexta vez seguida un encuentro por diferencia de una carrera. Tampa Bay ha disputado 49 encuentros con diferencia de una anotación, la mayor cifra en las Grandes Ligas, con una foja de 22-27.

Los Orioles (35-80) abren una serie de cuatro encuentros el viernes ante Boston. Una victoria por parte de los Medias Rojas, que lideran la División Este de la Liga Americana, dejará matemáticamente eliminado a Baltimore.

En el comienzo del séptimo episodio, los Orioles habían tomado la ventaja por 4-3 cuando el venezolano Renato Núñez bateó un jonrón solitario contra su compatriota Yonny Chirinos (1-4), quien aceptó una carrera y tres hits en cinco innings de relevo y se llevó su primera victoria en las mayores.

El mexicano Sergio Romo resolvió el noveno capítulo para apuntarse su 14to salvamento.

Por los Orioles, el dominicano Jonathan Villar de 3-0. El venezolano Núñez de 4-1 con una anotada y una producida.

Por los Rays, el venezolano Jesús Sucre de 2-0 con una anotada.

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson now has a preseason rushing touchdown to go with the one he threw in the Hall of Fame Game.In the first quarter against the Los Angeles Rams, the rookie signal caller dropped back to pass. But when no throw could be made, he did not hesitate in taking off for the end zone, scrambling for a nine-yard touchdown.Jackson broke a couple of ankles along the way, too. After the Hall of Fame Game, Jackson had acknowledged struggling with the speed of the game. But at least on this play, he seems to have done a good job adjusting to that problem.
          NFL roundup: Mayfield and Barkley have strong debuts in preseason opener      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Baker Mayfield and Saquon Barkley lived up to early expectations as the top two picks in the NFL draft in their first action as the Cleveland Browns beat the New York Giants 20-10 on Thursday night.

Replacing starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor late in the first quarter, Mayfield hit 11 of 20 passes for 212 yards, two touchdowns, and converted two fourth-down plays with his feet. The Heisman Trophy winner who was the No. 1 overall pick found tight end David Njoku on a 10-yard TD pass to cap a 14-play, 72-yard drive on his second series. He finished his debut with a completion on a 54-yard slant and run to fellow rookie Antonio Callaway.

Taylor, expected to be coach Hue Jackson's starter as Mayfield learns this season, hit all five of his passes in two series, including a 36-yard touchdown pass to Njoku, a New Jersey native.

Barkley, the No. 2 pick, electrified the fans at MetLife Stadium, taking a handoff from Eli Manning on the opening play from scrimmage and turning no apparent hole into a 39-yard run down the sideline in front of the Giants' bench. It set up a 42-yard field goal by Aldrick Rosas.

The Penn State running back finished with 43 yards on five carries.

STEELERS 31, EAGLES 14

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Landry Jones and Josh Dobbs each tossed touchdown passes and the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles rested several starters, including quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Nick Foles. Nate Sudfeld threw a pair of touchdown passes and two interceptions.

Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown sat for the Steelers and Le'Veon Bell still hasn't signed his franchise tender.

Jones completed all four of his passes for 83 yards, including a 71-yard TD pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster in the first quarter. Smith-Schuster made a leaping catch over Rasul Douglas at the 33 and ran untouched to the end zone.

Fitzgerald Toussaint had a 3-yard TD run and a 2-point conversion, while Dobbs threw a 29-yard TD pass to Damoun Patterson.

Sudfeld threw a perfect strike for a 63-yard TD to Shelton Gibson and fired a 15-yard TD pass to rookie Dallas Goedert. He finished 10 of 14 for 140 yards.

Wentz still hasn't been cleared for contact after having surgery to repair two torn ligaments in his left knee last December. Foles, the Super Bowl MVP, has missed a few practices with muscle spasms in his neck and shoulder.

Mason Rudolph, a third-round pick competing with Jones and Dobbs for the backup job to Roethlisberger, was 7 of 12 for 101 yards.

PANTHERS 28, BILLS 23

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Bills receiver Kelvin Benjamin's feud with former teammate Panthers quarterback Cam Newton continued before and during Carolina's preseason-opening win.

First, the two exchanged words on the field about 90 minutes before kickoff. Then they each played key roles in touchdowns drives in the first quarter.

Benjamin caught four passes for 59 yards, including a 28-yard touchdown reception from Nathan Peterman on Buffalo's first possession. Newton responded on the next possession, completing 4 of 5 attempts for 67 yards as part of an 85-yard drive capped by Christian McCaffrey's 2-yard run.

The bad blood between the two emerged last week when Benjamin criticized Newton's accuracy and questioned why the Panthers used a first-round pick to draft Benjamin in 2014. It was the latest time Benjamin has voiced his frustrations since forcing his trade to Buffalo in October.

Before the game, a video posted by The Charlotte Observer showed Benjamin chatting with Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis when Newton approached the two and attempted to shake Benjamin's hand. Newton waved away Davis, and then had a brief discussion with Benjamin before the receiver began walking away.

Newton followed and the two talked again. The discussion ended when Benjamin shrugged and turned to walk away, and Newton waved his hand at the receiver's back.

Newton finished 6 of 9 for 84 yards in two series.

BENGALS 30, BEARS 27

CINCINNATI (AP) — Andy Dalton made a solid debut in Cincinnati's revamped offense, throwing for a pair of touchdowns.

The Bengals were last in the league on offense last season, the worst finish in franchise history. They overhauled their leaky offensive line, and coordinator Bill Lazor injected more diversity into the playbook. It showed the first time out.

Dalton went 6 of 8 for 103 yards, completing four passes of at least 20 yards. He also had an interception that wasn't his fault — John Ross fell on his route and Kyle Fuller returned the pickoff 47 yards to the end zone.

The Bears (0-2) rested most of their starters during a 17-16 loss to the Ravens in the Hall of Fame game, including quarterback Mitchell Trubisky . His preseason debut didn't go very well.

Trubisky was in for two series that netted minus-1 yard on eight plays. The Bears' only first down on those series came on Carlos Dunlap's penalty for roughing the quarterback, a late hit on Trubisky. He missed on a deep sideline pass to Kevin White on his opening throw and finished 2 of 4 for 4 yards.

SAINTS 24, JAGUARS 20

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Blake Bortles completed 6 of 9 passes for 53 yards and scored on a short bootleg. Bortles was poised in the pocket and nearly perfect in one series of work, a significant improvement from the way his preseason started a year ago. Bortles had a five-interception performance during a training camp practice in 2017 and continued to struggle during joint practices with New England. He was benched two weeks into the preseason and had to earn the starting job.

A year later, his starting spot is as solid as just about anyone's on the team. It showed against the Saints.

Bortles led the Jaguars on a 15-play, 79-yard drive to open the game. He converted both third-down passes he faced and finished off the series by going untouched around the right side.

Saints star Drew Brees got the night off, allowing backup Tom Savage to play the first half. Savage completed 10 of 14 passes for 70 yards. Brees only played in one preseason game in 2017.

Mark Ingram, suspended the first four games of the regular season for violating NFL policy on performance enhancers, carried seven times for 23 yards and a touchdown. Ingram scored against Jacksonville's backups and after a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty kept the drive alive.

BUCCANEERS 26, DOLPHINS 24

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Buccaneers kicker Chandler Catanzaro made a 26-yard field goal with 23 seconds left to cap a 67-yard drive and give them the win.

Ryan Tannehill completed passes on the first four plays in his return from two serious injuries to his left knee, sparking a 40-yard drive that ended with a missed field goal in his only series.

Tannehill, seeing his first action since December 2016, was off-target on his final two throws and finished 4 for 6 for 32 yards.

Tampa Bay's Jameis Winston played the second quarter against Miami's second team and led a group of reserves to 10 points on drives of 32 and 40 yards. He went 11 for 13 for 102 yards in four series.

Winston is suspended for the first three games of the regular season for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Dolphins receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson and defensive end Robert Quinn protested during the anthem. Stills and Wilson kneeled behind teammates lined up standing along the sideline. Quinn stood and raised his right fist. There were no apparent protests by the Buccaneers.

PATRIOTS 26, REDSKINS 17

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Colt McCoy outplayed Brian Hoyer in a scrimmage of backup quarterbacks, while Tom Brady and Alex Smith stayed on the sidelines counting their money.

On the day the Patriots reportedly sweetened Brady's contract with $5 million in incentives, the reigning NFL MVP sat out the team's exhibition season opener. So did his Washington counterpart, Smith, who was traded to the nation's capital in the offseason and received a four-year, $94 million extension.

In their place, McCoy completed 13 of 18 passes for 189 yards and two touchdowns as Washington opened 17-0 lead in the first half. Hoyer struggled against the Washington starters, but drove New England to a pair of second-half touchdowns, including Ralph Webb's 8-yard run for a score followed by the catch on a 2-point conversion that gave New England its first lead.

Washington was hit with a slew of injuries, including second-round draft pick Derrius Guice, who left with a knee injury after a 34-yard run (which was negated by a penalty) near the end of the first quarter. Also needing medical attention: TE Manasseh Gardner (knee), and WR Trey Quinn, who took a hard shot in the side from Patriots cornerback Ryan Lewis and took a few minutes to get up before heading to the medical tent.

RAVENS 33, RAMS 7

BALTIMORE (AP) — Joe Flacco threw a touchdown pass on his only series of the game and rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson ran for a score.

Baltimore led 17-0 after the first period and cruised to the finish against the Rams, who rested offensive stars Jared Goff and Todd Gurley.

After sitting out the Hall of Fame Game last week, Flacco went 5 for 7 for 71 yards during a 10-play drive. The 11-year veteran overcame a second-and-25 with a 30-yard pass to newcomer Michael Crabtree and finished with a 6-yard TD throw to Patrick Ricard.

Jackson entered the next time Baltimore got the ball and coolly directed a 73-yard march in which he completed a 36-yard pass to Chris Moore and broke two tackles running for a 9-yard touchdown.

The Ravens and Rams held joint practices Monday and Tuesday, and Los Angeles coach Sean McVay indicated the work against outside opposition would enable him to rest a few of his starters in the preseason opener. He did.

PACKERS 31, TITANS 17

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Marcus Mariota looked sharp orchestrating yet another new offensive system for the Tennessee Titans. Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams needed just one series to show he was in midseason form.

Mariota was 2 of 3 for 42 yards with a 4-yard scoring pass to Darius Jennings on the opening drive of Mike Vrabel's first preseason game as Titans coach. Mariota also had one carry for 7 yards before leaving after the nine-play series.

It was a nice, if brief, start for Mariota. He's picking up a new scheme under his third head coach in four seasons.

Backup Brett Hundley did his best impression of Aaron Rodgers by hitting Adams in stride down the left sideline for a 48-yard completion.

          Is It Legal for Trump to Ban Reporters from the White House?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The law provides a puzzling answer.

As long as reporters have covered government officials, they’ve sought greater access than the government was willing to allow.

The White House excluded a CNN reporter from an international trade announcement with the president of the European Commission on July 25, in apparent retaliation after she shouted unwelcome questions at President Donald Trump during an Oval Office appearance. Many observers viewed this move as an escalation of the Trump administration’s hostility toward journalists.

The Washington Post called the decision to exclude CNN’s Kaitlan Collins “highly unusual and possibly unprecedented.” Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., called it “an offense against the First Amendment interests of all of us.”

But did the White House actually violate the Constitution?

As a media law professor, I regularly remind students that the First Amendment right of access to government officials, records and events is surprisingly uncertain. The First Amendment guarantees all Americans freedom to speak and publish without government interference. It has been broadly interpreted by the Supreme Court to forbid the government from restraining or punishing a speaker based on the content of the speaker’s message.

While journalists have a clearly established First Amendment right to publish the news they’ve gathered – even in extreme cases, like the leak of stolen Pentagon documents – it’s much less clear that the First Amendment protects the right to gather the news in the first place.

A right to publish, but not a ‘right to gather?’

CNN has not indicated that it plans to take any legal action over Collins’ exclusion. In addition to being awkward – imagine a journalist taking the witness stand to testify against the White House communications director – a court case over a withdrawn invitation would face legal obstacles.

The courts have refused to recognize an overarching “constitutional right of access” to government information. Instead, they have picked off cases with narrow, specific rulings.

For instance, the Supreme Court recognized in Richmond Newspapers v. Virginia that there is a constitutional right to cover a criminal trial. Likewise, federal appeals courts agree the First Amendment guarantees the right to videotape police making arrests in a public place. At the same time, judges have found no constitutional right to obtain government documents, or to enter crime scenes that are off-limits to the public.

Does CNN’s White House correspondent, or any journalist, have a First Amendment “right” to a press pass or a spot at a news conference?

Since the Supreme Court said in its 1972 Branzburg ruling that journalists have no right to insist on greater access than the general public, probably not.

That being said, journalists do have a right not to be retaliated against, regardless of what form the retaliation takes.

Retaliatory exclusions can violate the law

Even if attending a White House event is not a constitutionally guaranteed right, that doesn’t mean the government is free to take it away as a punishment. The government cannot take away even a purely discretionary privilege if the motive is to penalize speech.

Even though there is no entitlement to hold a government job, the Supreme Court decided in 1966 that public employment cannot be denied on the basis of viewpoint.

And even though there is no entitlement to receive a discretionary government grant, the justices ruled in 2013 that a grant cannot be denied because the applicant expresses a view different from the government’s.

In other words, any action by a government agency intended to punish or deter a speaker for unwanted speech can violate the Constitution.

That same legal principle would apply today if a federal official denied a government “privilege” to a journalist on the basis of a disagreeable viewpoint.

In the CNN situation, if Collins lost something of value, like the ability to attend a presidential appearance, because of the content of her speech, she has the essential ingredients of a First Amendment case.

The White House likely would argue that it was Collins’ method of delivery – raising her voice, after being asked not to – and not the content of her message that earned her a disinvitation.

That would make a First Amendment claim blurrier.

Government agencies can regulate the “time, place and manner” of speaking, the Supreme Court has ruled, as long as the restrictions are reasonable and enforced evenhandedly. Were a case to go to court, Collins and CNN might have to demonstrate that other journalists have shouted friendlier questions without consequence.

Journalists’ rights need clarifying

In a similar case in Maryland, a news organization lost a lawsuit against Maryland’s former governor.

The Maryland case shows how difficult it can be to prove a retaliation claim. In that 2006 case, a federal appeals court ruled that Gov. Robert Ehrlich did not violate The Baltimore Sun’s First Amendment rights by directing his administration to stop returning calls or granting interviews to a reporter and columnist whose coverage Ehrlich considered unfair.

The appellate judges found the idea of a “right” to interview the governor’s aides to be a problem. If The Sun could sue over being denied access to the governor’s staff, they said, what would stop a reporter from bringing a First Amendment claim whenever his competitor gets an exclusive interview?

In essence, the judges ruled, the governor did what politicians routinely do: talk only to the journalists they trust.

The distinction in Collins’ case is that she wasn’t just denied a returned phone call. She was denied admittance to an event that she can prove she’d otherwise have been able to attend.

The ConversationIt’s unlikely news organizations will sue over White House snubs. Still, in my view, the Supreme Court needs to find a vehicle to clarify this murky area of constitutional law. It should be recognized that the First Amendment principle forbidding government officials from punishing people for the content of their speech is broad enough to protect journalists against retaliatory “freeze-outs” meant to deter aggressive coverage.

According to some that are in the know, we'll drop one or two (Chaney for sure is gone), which leaves us 7-8 more spots available. Think we're taking 28 this year.

$11 Million Extension Builds a Safer, Stronger DC for Cyclists and Pedestrians

Washington, DC – Mayor Bowser today broke ground on the Fort Totten extension of the Metropolitan Branch Trail (MBT), which will connect the existing trail from John McCormack Drive in Brookland to the Fort Totten Metro Station. This is the next major milestone toward the completion of the Metropolitan Branch Trail.

“This extension is a tremendous example of how we are working together as a community to build a safer, stronger DC for pedestrians and cyclists,” said Mayor Bowser. “With this project, we’re closing key gaps in our network and providing a safe, off-street route for people traveling through the District.”

The $11 million project, which will take approximately 18 months to complete, is a partnership between the District Department of Transportation, the National Park Service, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, and CSX Railroad. Trail features along the off-street extension will include: LED lighting, security cameras, way-finding signage, permeable pavement, and bio-retention facilities.

Once complete, the Metropolitan Branch Trail will be an eight-mile multi-use trail that connects Union Station to Silver Spring, Maryland. Following the Metropolitan Branch Line of the Baltimore and Ohio (B&O) Railroad, the trail passes through numerous vibrant and historic neighborhoods. Current plans include connections to the area’s trail network such as the Capital Crescent Trail, Anacostia Trails System, and integration into the East Coast Greenway.

          Denzel Ward, Billy Price, J.T. Barrett Among Buckeyes Set For First NFL Action As Preseason Kicks Off Thursday      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

While we still have to wait a little over three more weeks to see the 2018 Ohio State football team take the field for its first game of the season, several members of Ohio State’s 2017 football team will take the field when Week 1 of the NFL preseason kicks off on Thursday night.

Former Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward, center Billy Price, defensive ends Sam Hubbard and Tyquan Lewis, offensive tackle Jamarco Jones, linebackers Jerome Baker and Chris Worley, quarterback J.T. Barrett, defensive tackle Tracy Sprinkle and safety Damon Webb are all among the Buckeyes who could see their first NFL game action as their new teams each open their preseasons on Thursday.

Among them, the Buckeye who could draw the biggest spotlight on Thursday night is Ward – the No. 4 overall pick in April’s NFL draft – whose Cleveland Browns, already in the spotlight this preseason as the featured team on this year’s edition of the HBO series “Hard Knocks,” play the New York Giants in a 7 p.m. game that will be nationally televised on NFL Network and locally in Columbus on 10TV.

Ward, who is already listed as a starting cornerback on the Browns’ depth chart, will be thrown into the fire immediately on Thursday night against a Giants team that includes one of the NFL’s best wide receivers, Odell Beckham Jr., though it’s likely that Beckham – who suffered an injury in a preseason game against the Browns last August, and ended up playing just four games in the regular season – won’t play on Thursday.

In the first couple weeks of his first NFL training camp, Ward has drawn praise from his new coaches and teammates for how he has performed as a Brown so far.

“I think that he has the ability to be one of the elite corners in this league,” fellow Browns defensive back Damarious Randall said last weekend, according to 247Sports’ Josh Edwards. “He is fast. He can run with anybody. The biggest thing that I am impressed with is his press technique. He is not scared to go up there and press anyone. That is one thing that you look for in a younger guy.”

Other former Buckeyes to watch in that game include running back Carlos Hyde, who is entering his first season as a Brown after four seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, and cornerback Eli Apple, who is looking to get back on track after a tumultuous second season with the New York Giants.

Price, Hubbard and Worley, meanwhile, will make their debuts for Ohio’s other NFL team on Thursday, when the Cincinnati Bengals open their preseason with a game against the Chicago Bears, also at 7 p.m., which will air on ABC6 in Columbus.

Like Ward, Price – the No. 21 overall pick in April’s NFL draft – is already listed a starter on his new team’s depth chart. He’s had his share of struggles early in training camp, as he adjusts to snapping the ball to a quarterback under center after rarely doing so at Ohio State, but he’s nonetheless in line to be the Bengals’ starting center and says he’s excited to take the field at Paul Brown Stadium on Thursday night.

“There's going to be nerves without a doubt,” Price said Tuesday, per Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com. “I think you're silly if you don't think there's going to be any nerves. This is your first NFL preseason start. But it's going to be fun. You've got to make sure you control what you can control and go out there and have some fun.”

Hubbard and Worley, meanwhile, should both see playing time for the Bengals’ defense on Thursday. For Hubbard, a third-round pick, it will be a realization of a dream come true, as the Cincinnati native will be playing for the team he grew up cheering for in front of his hometown crowd for the first time. For Worley, an undrafted rookie, every preseason game will be crucial for him to perform well and improve his chances of making the regular-season roster.

Another Buckeye who will certainly be of interest on Thursday night is Barrett, also an undrafted rookie who is looking to earn his way onto the Saints’ roster. As their current fourth-string quarterback, however, Barrett probably won’t see much playing time in Thursday’s 7 p.m. game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, as second-string quarterback Tom Savage and third-string quarterback Taysom Hill are expected to see most of the reps.

Of course, there are plenty of other Buckeyes to watch when the Saints take the field, as their roster currently includes an NFL-high six former Ohio State players, also including wide receivers Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn Jr. and defensive backs Marshon Lattimore, Vonn Bell and Kurt Coleman. The Jaguars also have two Buckeyes in Michael Bennett and Andrew Norwell, who is set for his first time action as a Jaguar after he said a five-year, $66.5 million deal with the team in March.

Another intriguing game for Ohio State ties could come at 10 p.m. Thursday, when the Indianapolis Colts play the Seattle Seahawks, as both teams drafted Buckeyes this April. The Colts selected Lewis with a second-round pick, while the Seahawks selected Jones with a fifth-round pick, and that could potentially mean the former teammates even matching up against one another on Thursday. Jones is currently competing to be the Seahawks’ starting right tackle. It’s uncertain whether Lewis will be able to play on Thursday, however, as he was listed on the Colts’ injury report with a foot injury earlier this week.

Other former Buckeyes who could be on the field in that game include defensive end John Simon for the Colts, and tight end Nick Vannett for the Seahawks. Former Buckeyes and current Colts safety Malik Hooker isn’t expected to play until later in the preseason as he works his way back from a torn ACL.

Another former Buckeye who tore his ACL last season, linebacker Raekwon McMillan, is expected to play when the Miami Dolphins play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 7 p.m. on Thursday. Baker, who played alongside McMillan in Ohio State’s linebacker corps in 2016, is also expected to make his Dolphins debut on Thursday.

Sprinkle, who is looking to make the Carolina Panthers’ roster as an undrafted rookie, will get his first chance to show what he is capable of in NFL game action when the Panthers play the Buffalo Bills at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Webb, who is looking to make the Tennessee Titans' roster as an undrafted rookie, will get his first chance to play in an NFL uniform at 8 p.m. Thursday, when the Titans play the Green Bay Packers – a game that will also serve as the head coaching debut for former Ohio State defensive end and assistant coach Mike Vrabel, and as the NFL coaching debut for former Ohio State cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs.

Marcus Baugh, an undrafted rookie tight end from Ohio State, will get his chance to play in his first NFL preseason game when the Oakland Raiders play the Detroit Lions at 10 p.m. on Friday night, in a game that will be televised on NFL Network.

Jalyn Holmes, a fourth-round pick defensive end from Ohio State, will also get a chance to make his NFL preseason debut on NFL Network when the Minnesota Vikings play the Denver Broncos at 9 p.m. Saturday.

Other former Buckeyes who will play in nationally televised Week 1 NFL preseason games include Ezekiel Elliott, Rod Smith, Noah Brown and Tyvis Powell, as the Dallas Cowboys play the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday at 10 p.m. on NFL Network; Darron Lee and Terrelle Pryor, as the New York Jets play the Atlanta Falcons at 7:30 p.m. Friday on NFL Network; and Jeff Heuerman, Bradley Roby and Corey “Philly” Brown for the Broncos.

Columbus-area viewers who want to watch Malcolm Jenkins, Cameron Johnston and Cameron Heyward in action will also have that option on Thursday at 7 p.m., as the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles’ game against the Pittsburgh Steelers will be televised locally on NBC4.

The NFL also offers an online subscription service, NFL Game Pass, which allows viewers to live out-of-market preseason games and replays of all NFL games.

           More Government Websites Encrypt as Google Chrome Warns Users Non-HTTPS Sites are 'Not Secure'       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Google Chrome, the most widely used Internet browser, has officially started warning users that unencrypted Web pages are “not secure.” Among those “not secure,” as of Aug. 9: The front pages of the official government websites for 14 states and four of the nation’s 10 most populous cities.

Encryption — most easily represented with an “HTTPS” rather than “HTTP” in front of a site’s Web address — is the practice of encoding data traveling between a website and its visitor so that any third parties who are able to peek into the data don’t know what’s happening. With encryption, users can reasonably expect that their connection is private. Without it, bad actors can do things like steal information and change a Web page’s content without the user realizing it.

It has become more or less the standard for the Internet. According to Google, 93 percent of Web traffic on Chrome takes place on encrypted pages. The tech giant started labeling non-HTTPS pages as “not secure” to push laggards toward encryption.

“Historically, that’s when you would encrypt websites … when there was sensitive information like payment card data,” said Andrew Hanks, Montana’s chief information security officer. “Back a decade ago, it was expensive to encrypt, to get the certificates to work. Now that’s not the case and encryption is the standard.”

Google’s tactic appears to be working. The number of government websites without encryption on the front page has actually been dropping somewhat quickly. Since the last time Government Technology checked in on this subject in March, 15 states — Arkansas, Connecticut, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Washington and Wisconsin — have all encrypted their front pages. Two of the 10 biggest cities — New York City and San Antonio — have done the same.

Several IT officials in state government pointed to Google as a force driving the move toward encryption. A common concern is the worry, or even confusion, that the “not secure” message might cause for a citizen visiting their government’s website.

“We certainly don’t want to alarm anybody,” said Audrey Hinman, chief of Montana’s Application Technology Services Bureau. “We were going to encrypt anyway but the timing of it definitely was focused on Google’s announcement.”

The states with unencrypted front pages are represented in a map above. The major cities lacking front-page encryption are Houston, Philadelphia, Dallas and San Jose — although a message on the Philadelphia front page says it will move to a new website "this summer."

It’s actually not the case that all of these websites lack encryption completely. Most, if not all, have encryption on pages that handle sensitive information such as credit card payments or home addresses. Many of the front pages have encryption too — but users have to take the time to type out “HTTPS://” before the site address in order to access it. If they type in the address without that, they will be taken to an unencrypted page.

Trust with citizens is important for government IT shops. Government websites these days handle licensing and permitting, they take property tax payments and give people election night voting totals.

Recent cybersecurity breaches in Mecklenburg County, N.C., Atlanta and other places probably doesn’t help.

“In addition to stopping malicious hacking attempts, encryption helps assure users that they’re on a trusted site,” wrote John Dipko, communications director for Wisconsin’s Department of Administration, in an email. “Because some search engines and all browsers visually discourage visits to untrusted sites by displaying that to the user, using SSL [Secure Sockets Layer, a standard way to secure data in transit] helps maintain traffic to our Web properties and boosts our search result rankings compared to untrusted sites.”

Jim Flynn, director of information security for the company CivicPlus — which provides Web services to governments, including website setup — said that citizens might get confused in situations where some pages on a government website are encrypted and others aren’t. Worse, those websites might be undermining their own protection of user data, because they’re giving attackers the ability to access cookies related to a user’s activities on a non-encrypted portion of the website.

“If there’s any sensitive information stored in the cookie and that information is not secured over HTTPS, that could be exposed to man-in-the-middle attacks,” he said.

Since there are thousands and thousands of local governments in the U.S., it would be difficult for any individual organization to get a good idea of how many of them have encrypted websites. But CivicPlus, which has deployed more than 3,000 websites on its CivicEngage platform, can come up with a sampling.

About a year ago, Flynn said, about 15 percent of CivicEngage sites had an SSL certificate. Only 1 percent had HTTPS by default — that is, users were automatically sent to encrypted pages sitewide.

CivicPlus undertook a campaign to drive that number up, acquiring certificates for its websites and streamlining the testing process inherent in migrating to HTTPS. Today, Flynn said, all CivicEngage sites have a certificate and 20 percent are HTTPS by default.

He expects that number to increase as awareness about encryption spreads.

“We’ve seen a major spike, an increase in this,” Flynn said. “It’s a very positive thing. We’ve seen a major spike since May, we’ve seen 300 sites migrate to HTTPS by default.”

One of the larger obstacles in the way of Web page encryption appears to be “mixed content,” — that is, content on the page that is loaded through an unencrypted path. A common example would be a picture. According to Flynn, mixed content can either cause the browser to mark the page as unencrypted or could even cause the page to fail to load.

A lot of time government IT shops spend migrating sites to HTTPS is done performing tests to find mixed content. Flynn attributes much of CivicPlus’ success transferring customers to encryption to the company’s streamlining of that process.

Chris Rein, New Jersey’s new CTO, said the problem with mixed content can be especially common in governments like his, where agencies have historically been responsible for their own websites, as opposed to a central authority handling them.

“You may have heard the cliché, if you’ve seen one website you’ve seen one website,” Rein said. “There’s such diversity among the content, the age, the genre of what tools are used. In New Jersey we provide services to over 50 offices and state agencies in the executive branch and over time there have been a lot of different [website] management styles.”

Another issue, perhaps more ancillary, is network security. Ironically, some network administrators might see HTTPS as a step backward in cybersecurity because encryption gives them less visibility into the traffic coming over a network, hindering their ability to identify malicious activity.

Most people don’t seem to think that’s enough to justify keeping a website unencrypted.

“I think as encryption became adopted as a practice, that was probably more true yesterday … than it is now,” Rein said. “There are tools and measures that are in use right now that actually are able to inspect traffic coming in, traffic going out, even if it’s encrypted.”

Those include tools that look at the metadata that comes through the network, rather than the core information itself, for red flags.

At the end of the day, Montana’s Hinman said the state just didn’t see any good reasons not to encrypt.

“From my perspective, it’s easy to be attained technically, and there’s nothing that we give up by doing it, so why not have that protection?” Hinman said.


           What’s New in Civic Tech: USDS Injects Human-Centered Design into Government Policymaking       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The United States Digital Service (USDS), a federal agency aimed at improving how government uses technology, recently took to Medium, the online publishing platform, to stress the importance of human-centered design within government policymaking.

The article starts by describing existing methods of incorporating feedback into policymaking, noting that while there is often a desire to bring more people into related discussions, “policymakers mainly get feedback from special interest groups and lobbying organizations with the resources and financial incentives to synthesize these complex documents.” The result is that the only input that policymakers get comes from a small group of plugged-in contributors.

The rest of the post details steps from a scenario in which the USDS worked to introduce a human-centered design approach to the policymaking process, one that sought to alleviate the problems the agency had previously identified. The result is an extensive explanation about how they did this work, why they did it and the results the work yielded.

Although this project and its insights came at the federal level, this is all pretty significant in the world of civic tech, with direct applications to state and local governments as well. Human-centered design and constituent engagement are fast taking hold within city halls and statehouses. With the USDS working to incorporate the ideas into policymaking at the highest levels, it's a clear sign that these disciplines are going to be part of the future.

Baltimore i-Team Launches New Website

The Baltimore Innovation Team (i-team) has launched a new website where visitors can learn more about both the team and the projects it is developing.

One of the most notable projects underway in Baltimore is the effort to design solutions that will help the police department improve its hiring and recruitment practices, a project that builds on work done by i-teams in other American cities. As the new website notes, the i-team has “conducted extensive quantitative and qualitative research.” The site also goes on to give specific information about challenges that research identified, as well as what the i-team is doing to address them.

This sort of transparency is repeated throughout the new website. The site also shares photos and bios about the nearly half a dozen people who make up the team.

For those who are unfamiliar with the concept, i-teams are supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies in more than 20 cities spread throughout four countries, including many in the United States. In addition to Baltimore, there are i-teams working in jurisdictions ranging from Long Beach, Calif., and Anchorage, Alaska, to Syracuse, N.Y. Their accomplishments include helping with infrastructure issues, fostering innovation and relieving pain points throughout municipal governments. 

New York City Approves New Tech Training Center

The New York City Council has approved a Tech Training Center to be built in Union Square.

The center is expected to help fuel the growth of New York City’s tech sector, according to a press release from Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office. It intends to do this by “providing accessible tech training and space for companies to grow and hire within the building.”

The project clocks in at a massive 240,000 square feet, and plans call for it to house a tech-focused workforce development center, ample civic tech co-working space at Civic Hall (a nonprofit community tech center located near Union Square), other flexible spaces to accommodate startups, and market-rate office space for more established tech companies. Officials say the center will create more than 600 quality jobs in Union Square.

The project was first announced in February 2017, and its development has included meetings with more than 40 community organizations from throughout New York City. According to a press release, those meetings have resulted in a number of additions, including the dedication of at least $200,000 annually to scholarships for low income students and the expansion of nonprofit training, making event space at Civic Hall free at various times for nonprofits and community groups, developing a Community Advisory Board, and dedicating 25 percent of the booths within the center’s market space to local vendors.

Civic Technologists Prep for National Day of Civic Hacking

Civic technologists across the country are preparing for the annual National Day of Civic Hacking, a coordinated event in which local volunteer groups assemble to conceptualize and execute tech projects that have the potential to improve life in their communities.

This year the event takes place on Saturday, Aug. 11. The day of civic hacking is organized by Code for America and its network of brigades across the country, with a goal of bringing “together civic leaders, local governments, and community organizations to tackle some of our toughest challenges,” according to the National Day of Civic Hacking Web page.

That same Web page has a long and extensive list of events taking place across the country, in many cities located in more than 20 states throughout the country. The type of events being hosted include hackathons, city camps and design camps.

Individuals who are interested in making a civic difference are encouraged to attend, even if they don’t necessarily consider themselves technologists. The website notes that the events are intended to “bring together community leaders, coders, government staff, designers, nonprofit employees, data scientists, and anyone with a stake in their government.”

Walter Brooks, founder of Cape Cod Today, died last night at the Mary McCarthy Hospice House in Sandwich.  He was 87 years old.

In 1997 Walter established Cape Cod Today as one of the nation’s first on-line only, hyperlocal newspapers.  For the next nineteen years, Walter started every morning working on CCToday, until he sold his media assets to CTM Media in early 2016. 

Later that year Walter helped arrange CTM’s donation of the news site to the Masonic Angel Foundation through CTM’s IDW Media Charitable Foundation, Inc.  Joining us as volunteer Managing Editor, Walter worked alongside us until literally the day he died.  One could not ask for a finer, more caring mentor than Walter Brooks.

When Walter founded CCToday most in the print newspaper industry ignored the potential of online local news.  While Walter was ignored by some of his contemporaries, his remarks about print news and “the mating sounds of dinosaurs” proved all too prescient.  Walter saw the demise of old-school print newspapers decades before his contemporaries paid attention.

Positive influence on Cape Cod’s schools

Walter’s Cape Cod Today work may be best remembered for his influence on Cape Cod’s schools.  Walter saw the developing “school competition culture” years before others.  He celebrated school choice, charter choice and technical schools as bringing new options to Cape Cod’s children. 

At the same time, Walter’s articles about trends in local education and the occasional expose piece encouraged the Cape’s school districts to become some of the most transparent in the nation.

When Walter returned to Cape Cod Today after the 2016 transitions, he provided indispensable mentoring to our new team of volunteer editors and reporters.  Walter’s guidance and hard work helped us to nearly triple our readership in less than two years.

On a personal note, your publisher was honored to enjoy a 30 plus year friendship with Walter Brooks.  We did our early explorations of desktop publishing side by side.  Later I had the privilege to partner with Walter on many content pieces and investigative reports published on Cape Cod Today. 

Even as his health began to decline, we continued to speak every day. 

The last time I visited Walter, just a few days before his passing, he wanted to know the daily readership numbers and what stories we had in process.

A career of over 65 years

Walter Brooks’ career in journalism spanned over 65 years.  In that time, Walter held nearly every position there was to hold in newspapering including, retail advertising manager, managing editor, promotion/marketing director, art director, photographer, and publisher.

Among Walter’s newspaper ports of call were The Village Voice, New York Post, Greenwich CT Time, Naugatuck CT Daily News, Amherst MA Journal-Record, Enfield CT PressThe Cape Codder and MPG Communications.

Walter’s columns and travel articles have appeared in The Boston Globe, Providence Journal, Baltimore Sun, MPG Newspaper Group, Editor & Publisher magazine and many others.

Walter was born in 1930 in Waterbury, Connecticut to Walter Rollin Brooks, Sr. and mother Evelyn Mae (Clark) Brooks. He was an only child.

He was educated at the Taft School, Culver Military Academy and University of Connecticut and was a frequent lecturer on newspaper design and promotion and niche publications.

In 1960 Walter and his bride, Patricia, moved to Harwich and never left.  They raised their two sons, Todd and Jay, here. Then they enjoyed watching their grandchildren, Will and Marina, thrive here as well.

In 1988, Walter and Pat founded the Best Read Guide.  This tourism publication led to a network of franchised editions.  In 2010, Walter wrote of Best Read Guide: “In the northeast of the U.S. Best Read Guide literally dominates tourism with editions in fifteen key family vacation areas like Martha's Vineyard, Cape Cod and Newport. These editions are read each year by a majority of Americans living east of the Mississippi. There are over a dozen editions in the southeast including markets like Orlando, Hilton Head, Savannah, Jacksonville, Tampa, Charleston, Augusta, St. Simon's Island, Clearwater, Kentucky, Smoky Mountains, St. Petersburg, and Daytona Beach. The American Midwest is covered with a half dozen in the Great Lakes areas plus Branson and Nashville. The latest editions include ones in Palm Springs, Vail, Aspen, Las Vegas, Anchorage and Juneau Alaska and London, England.”

Best Read Guide moved online in 1996 with capecodtravel.com which received over ten million hits a month.  Walter later started BRG Distribution Company along with weddings and kids’ tourism sites that were included in the portfolio sold to CTM Media upon his retirement.

A memorial service will be held after Labor Day and will be published on Cape Cod Today when scheduled.

Cybersecurity researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have helped close a security vulnerability that could have allowed hackers to steal encryption keys from a popular security package by briefly listening in on unintended "side channel" signals from smartphones.

The attack, which was reported to software developers before it was publicized, took advantage of programming that was, ironically, designed to provide better security. The attack used intercepted electromagnetic signals from the phones that could have been analyzed using a small portable device costing less than a thousand dollars. Unlike earlier intercept attempts that required analyzing many logins, the "One & Done" attack was carried out by eavesdropping on just one decryption cycle.

"This is something that could be done at an airport to steal people's information without arousing suspicion and makes the so-called 'coffee shop attack' much more realistic," said Milos Prvulovic, associate chair of Georgia Tech's School of Computer Science. "The designers of encryption software now have another issue that they need to take into account because continuous snooping over long periods of time would no longer be required to steal this information."

The side channel attack is believed to be the first to retrieve the secret exponent of an encryption key in a modern version of OpenSSL without relying on the cache organization and/or timing. OpenSSL is a popular encryption program used for secure interactions on websites and for signature authentication. The attack showed that a single recording of a cryptography key trace was sufficient to break 2048 bits of a private RSA key.

Results of the research, which was supported in part by the National Science Foundation, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) will be presented at the 27th USENIX Security Symposium August 16th in Baltimore.

After successfully attacking the phones and an embedded system board―which all used ARM processors―the researchers proposed a fix for the vulnerability, which was adopted in versions of the software made available in May.

Side channel attacks extract sensitive information from signals created by electronic activity within computing devices during normal operation. The signals include electromagnetic emanations created by current flows within the devices computational and power-delivery circuitry, variation in power consumption, and also sound, temperature and chassis potential variation. These emanations are very different from communications signals the devices are designed to produce.

In their demonstration, Prvulovic and collaborator Alenka Zajic listened in on two different Android phones using probes located near, but not touching the devices. In a real attack, signals could be received from phones or othermobile devices by antennas located beneath tables or hidden in nearby furniture.

The "One & Done" attack analyzed signals in a relatively narrow (40 MHz wide) band around the phones' processor clock frequencies, which are close to 1 GHz (1,000 MHz). The researchers took advantage of a uniformity in programming that had been designed to overcome earlier vulnerabilities involving variations in how the programs operate.

"Any variation is essentially leaking information about what the program is doing, but the constancy allowed us to pinpoint where we needed to look," said Prvulovic. "Once we got the attack to work, we were able to suggest a fix for it fairly quickly. Programmers need to understand that portions of the code that are working on secret bits need to be written in a very particular way to avoid having them leak."

The researchers are now looking at other software that may have similar vulnerabilities, and expect to develop a program that would allow automated analysis of security vulnerabilities.

"Our goal is to automate this process so it can be used on any code," said Zajic, an associate professor in Georgia Tech's School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. "We'd like to be able to identify portions of code that could be leaky and require a fix. Right now, finding these portions requires considerable expertise and manual examination."

Side channel attacks are still relatively rare, but Prvulovic says the success of "One & Done" demonstrates an unexpected vulnerability. The availability of low-cost signal processing devices small enough to use in coffee shops or airports could make theattacks more practical.

"We now have relatively cheap and compact devices―smaller than a USB drive―that are capable of analyzing these signals," said Prvulovic. "Ten years ago, the analysis of this signal would have taken days. Now it takes just seconds, and can be done anywhere―not just in a lab setting."

Producers of mobile devices are becoming more aware of the need to protect electromagnetic signals of phones, tablets and laptops from interception by shielding their side channel emissions. Improving the software running on the devices is also important, but Prvulovic suggests that users of mobile devices must also play a security role.

"This is something that needs to be addressed at all levels," he said. "A combination of factors―better hardware, better software and cautious computer hygiene―make you safer. You should not be paranoid about using your devices in public locations, but you should be cautious about accessing banking systems or plugging yourdevice into unprotected USB chargers."

In addition to those already mentioned, the research involved Monjur M. Alam, Haider A. Khan, Moutmita Dey, Nishith Sinha and Robert Callen, all of Georgia Tech.


          New private equity firm Donerail bidding for Tronc      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Donerail Group, a newly formed investment firm headed by former Starboard Value LP executive Will Wyatt, is in advanced negotiations to buy Chicago-based newspaper company Tronc, sources familiar with the deal said Thursday.

There is no certainty a deal will be struck, and sources said the financing might not be fully in place. But if a sale were to occur, it would mark the second change in control in less than three years for the company that owns the Chicago Tribune and other newspapers.

The Tribune reported Wednesday that a private equity firm had bid between $19 and $20 per share for Tronc, an offer that could total upward of $700 million for the entire company. Reuters on Thursday reported Donerail as a bidder.

Wyatt left hedge fund Starboard Value LP in June after three years, according to his LinkedIn profile. He was involved in several media investments for the New York-based firm, including taking a stake in Tronc as it was fending off a hostile takeover bid by Gannett in 2016, according to media reports at the time.

Starboard Value also bought a significant stake last year in Chicago-based Tribune Media as it was navigating its own proposed merger with Sinclair Broadcast Group. That deal fell through Thursday as Tribune Media ended the agreement and filed a $1 billion breach of contract lawsuit against Sinclair.

More recently, Wyatt served as a paid consultant in Tronc’s $500 million sale of the Los Angeles Times and San Diego Union-Tribune to biotech billionaire Patrick Soon-Shiong, according to documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The deal was struck in February and closed in June, leaving Tronc virtually debt-free and with nearly $215 million in available cash on hand as of July 1, according to its second-quarter earnings report released Thursday.

Wyatt declined to comment Thursday. On an earnings call with analysts, Tronc executives said they would not take questions related to a potential bid for the company.

Tronc, formerly known as Tribune Publishing, also owns the Baltimore Sun, Hartford Courant, Orlando Sentinel, South Florida’s Sun Sentinel, the New York Daily News, the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Md., The Morning Call in Allentown, Pa., the Daily Press in Newport News, Va., and The Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, Va.

Tronc’s stock closed at $16.96 Thursday, up nearly 15 percent from Wednesday’s opening price.

          Premium Cotton Boxer Shorts Designed Especially for Women      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Baltimore, MD -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/10/2018 -- Women need never again get caught stealing their boyfriend's boxer shorts from his underwear drawer now that a range of boxer shorts especially for women has become available.

My Lilianas, from Samanta Stelz, are 100% cotton shorts that have pockets. Since they are made by women for women, they are designed for the female form to be supremely comfortable as well as stylish. In fact, women will love My Lilianas so much that they won't want to keep them hidden away as underwear; luckily, that's not a problem. Designed to be worn as underwear, loungewear, sleepwear, or outerwear, My Lilianas are available in a range of patterns and colors to suit all moods and tastes.

Currently, My Lilianas are available in Pink or Black Pin Stripe, Tropical Palm Tree, Tropical Pineapple, Weiner Dogs, Kitty Cat, Yellow or Blue Polka Dot.

Entrepreneur and designer, Samantha Stelz came up with the idea for My Lilianas in college when she found herself frequently borrowing her boyfriend's boxer shorts because of how comfortable they felt at the end of a long day. When shopping in the men's department for boxer shorts for herself, she ran into her colleague and discovered she was there for the exact same reason. That's when the idea for My Lilianas was conceived.

Stelz and her team surveyed women all over the country before coming up with a design for boxer shorts that women will love. They then worked closely with a top manufacturer with years of experience to achieve a prototype.

My Lilianas will be available August 14th for anyone to purchase on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter in sizes small, medium, large, and extra large. Early bird deals are available and prices start from just $18 with additional deals if more than one pair is purchased.

The team behind My Lilianas need the public to spread the word among their female friends and colleagues and purchase a pair of boxer shorts from their Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign which starts August 14th. That way, they can manufacture even more shorts and bring the ultimate in cotton loungewear to even more women across the globe. The brand additionally wants to create a community of women. My Lilianas wants to promote women's health, rights, and gender equality via social media and their blog.

My Lilianas have a stretchy, soft-to-the-touch waistband and are made from light, airy, breathable cotton. Made with slits for maneuverability and flexibility, the pre-shrunk boxer shorts have pockets for a phone, chapstick, or anything else a wearer needs to carry discreetly in their pocket.

"My Lilianas are designed with comfort as our number one goal," said Stelz. "The material is a breathable fabric that keeps you cool and fresh all day- or night- long. My Lilianas are the most breathable, affordable and sustainable pair of quality cotton shorts you will own, and you will want to live in them!"

          NFL players protest during anthem, drawing rebuke from Trump      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

NFL players demonstrated during the national anthem at several preseason games Thursday night, protests that again drew a rebuke from President Donald Trump.

Writing on Twitter from his New Jersey golf resort, Trump said Friday that players "make a fortune doing what they love," and those who refuse to stand "proudly" for the anthem should be suspended without pay.

He contended "most of them are unable to define" what they're demonstrating against." Instead, he said, players should "Be happy, be cool!"

In Philadelphia, Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins and cornerback De'Vante Bausby raised their fists during the anthem, and defensive end Chris Long placed his arm around Jenkins' shoulder. Jenkins had stopped his demonstration last December.

Defensive end Michael Bennett walked out of the tunnel during the anthem and walked toward the bench while it played. It appeared all the Steelers stood.

"Everybody is waiting for what the league is going to do," Jenkins said. "We won't let it stop what we stand for. I was very encouraged last year with the direction and that obviously took a different turn.

"I think it's important to utilize the platform as we can because for whatever reason, we have framed this demonstration in a negative light, and often players have to defend why we feel the need to fight for everyday Americans, and in actuality we're doing the right thing."

At Miami, Dolphins receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson and defensive end Robert Quinn protested during the anthem. Stills and Wilson kneeled behind teammates lined up standing along the sideline. Quinn stood and raised his right fist. There were no apparent protests by the Buccaneers.

"As a black man in this world, I've got an obligation to raise awareness," Quinn said. "If no one wants to live in unity, that's why we're in the situation we're in."

Stills kneeled during the anthem during the 2016-17 seasons and has been vocal discussing social injustice issues that inspired the protest movement by NFL players.

Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, a leader of the movement, tweeted support for Stills and Wilson.

"My brother @kstills continued his protest of systemic oppression tonight by taking a knee," the tweet said. "Albert Wilson joined him in protest. Stay strong brothers!"

And in Seattle, three Seahawks players ran into the team's locker room prior to the playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner."

Defensive linemen Branden Jackson and Quinton Jefferson, and offensive lineman Duane Brown left the field following team introductions and before the start of the anthem. They returned to the sideline immediately after it concluded. All three were among a group of Seattle players that sat during the anthem last season.

Brown and Jefferson said they intend to continue the action all season. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said the team discussed the topic and decided to support individual decisions. Brown said he didn't believe there had been much progress made from the demonstrations of last season.

"Everyone was clear on my decision and understands and supports it," Brown said. "We all have different realities in this country and they understand my perspective. We're all on good terms."

In Jacksonville, four Jaguars remained in the locker room during the national anthem, and team officials said it would be up to the players to explain why they weren't on the field. Cornerback Jalen Ramsey, linebacker Telvin Smith, and running backs Leonard Fournette and T.J. Yeldon joined teammates on the sideline after the anthem.

"As a man, I got certain beliefs," said Smith, who wore "Salute the Service" cleats. "You know what I mean? This is not going to become a distraction, and Jacksonville's not going to become a distraction for this team. I got beliefs. I did what I did. I don't know if it's going to be every week, can't answer if it's going to be every week.

"But as a man I've got to stand for something. I love my team, I'm dedicated to my teammates, and that's what we're talking about. I did what I did. It was love. I hope people see it and respect it. I respect views."

At Baltimore, both teams stood, but while most of the Ravens lined up shoulder to shoulder on the sideline, second-year linebacker Tim Williams stood alone in front of the bench with his back toward the field.

All players on each team at New England appeared to stand for the anthem, some bowing their heads and others placing their hands on their hearts. The Patriots observed a moment of silence beforehand for Weymouth, Massachusetts, police officer Michael Chesna, who was killed last month in the line of duty.

The league and the players' union have yet to announce a policy for this season regarding demonstrations during the anthem after the league initially ordered everyone to stand on the sideline when the anthem is played, or remain in the locker room.

"The NFL has been engaged in constructive discussions with the NFL Players Association regarding the anthem and issues of equality and social justice that are of concern to many Americans," league spokesman Brian McCarthy said in an email.

"While those discussions continue, the NFL has agreed to delay implementing or enforcing any club work rules that could result in players being disciplined for their conduct during the performance of the anthem.

"Meanwhile, there has been no change in the NFL's policy regarding the national anthem. The anthem will continue to be played before every game, and all player and non-player personnel on the field at that time are expected to stand during the presentation of the flag and performance of the anthem. Personnel who do not wish to do so can choose to remain in the locker room.

"We remain committed to working with the players to identify solutions and to continue making progress on important social issues affecting our communities."


          Vital's OWEN & MZEE THE MUSICAL to Be Presented as Part of Super Showcase      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Vital Theatre Company is pleased to announce the Super Showcase performance of OWEN & MZEE: THE TRUE STORY OF A REMARKABLE FRIENDSHIP the #1 New York Times best-selling children's book about the friendship between a tortoise and an orphaned hippopotamus written by father and daughter team Craig and Isabella Hatkoff and Dr. Paula Kahumbu . The musical features book and lyrics by Michelle Elliott and music and lyrics by Danny Larsen. Stanley Mathis is the Director/ Choreographer and Costume Designer.

The Showcase is one night only, Tuesday, August 28th at 10:20 PM at Myron's Cabaret Jazz in the Smith Center for the Performing Arts, 361 Symphony Park Avenue, Las Vegas, NV.

OWEN & MZEE THE MUSICAL is inspiring true story of two great friends, a baby hippo named Owen and a 130-yr-old giant tortoise named Mzee. When Owen was stranded after a tsunami, villagers in Kenya worked tirelessly to rescue him. Then, to everyone's amazement, the orphan hippo and the elderly tortoise adopted each other and they became inseparable, swimming, eating, and playing together. Adorable photos e-mailed from friend to friend quickly made them worldwide celebrities. Here is a joyous reminder that in times of trouble, friendship is stronger than the differences that too often pull us apart.

          Virginia GOP Campaign Aide Attacks NAACP       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A campaign consultant helping a Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Virginia has attacked the NAACP and cities with large African-American populations. News outlets report that Rick Shaftan, who is working for Corey Stewart's Senate campaign, has posted disparaging comments about African Americans on social media in past years. He also said that the NAACP is "more violent" than the KKK. Shaftan used an expletive in January when discussing Baltimore replacing a confederate statue. He was also critical of New Orleans and Ferguson, Missouri. Shaftan declined comment. Stewart declined to say whether he would keep working with Shaftan. Shaftan also helped Stewart in last year's GOP primary. Shaftan led a group that created a fake Facebook headline on a news story to spread false information about one of Stewart's rivals.
          Lancaster County’s Matt Kofroth Receives Watershed Champion Award From Alliance for The Chesapeake Bay      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay will recognize four environmental leaders at its annual Taste Of The Chesapeake Awards dinner on  September 13 in Annapolis.
Matt Kofroth from Lancaster County will be honored with the Watershed Champion Award.
Kofroth’s knowledge and “can do” spirit are at the heart of his local watershed work, and the Watershed Champion Award recognizes his incredible impact on each downstream neighbor who has benefited from the many projects and programs he’s implemented.
During his years of volunteering in watershed efforts prior to his work at the Lancaster County Conservation District, he steadily built a base of understanding about the improvements and best practices needed to help Lancaster County, PA, waterways.
As the watershed specialist at the district for almost 20 years, Matt has coordinated volunteer monitoring programs, helped to organize local watershed associations, reviewed and written grants for restoration projects and created resources for county homeowners to improve their water use.
His innovations in watershed education have empowered numerous volunteers to make a difference in their own watershed.
Recognizing that one person can’t do it all, he guides and serves as a resource to enable others to excel and complete goals broadening the ripples in the stream, so to speak.
Matt has contributed to the Alliance’s Pennsylvania work, including the READY program and Restoring the Octoraro Reservoir project, as well as serving as a guide for the Alliance’s state team in writing a watershed implementation plan.
Matt has been involved in countless Alliance efforts and is a resident watershed expert for many groups in Lancaster County and beyond.
Matt also coordinated a project-- restoration of a section of Big Beaver Creek on a Plain Sect farm-- recently highlighted by DEP and the Department of Agriculture during Chesapeake Bay Watershed Awareness Week.  The project won the Governor’s 2018 Award For Environmental Excellence.

Image result for joel silberman
I was saddened to hear that Joel Silberman lost his battle with cancer on August 2 just as we started this 13th edition of Netroots Nation.

Silberman came from the world of Broadway, but is well known and respected in liberal progressive political circles as the political media consultant and trainer extraordinaire for Democratic candidates who also was part of the Netroots Nation family

Image may contain: 1 person, standing
I first met Joel when I traveled to New York in 2012 for the GLAAD POC Media training which he conducted.  It was because of him I learned the basics of how to do television interviews and got to feel more comfortable in front of the unblinking eye of a camera.

Netroots Nation honored his memory by signing show tunes on Friday in the Town Square area of the convention and this memorial.

I ran into him again at a subsequent LGBT Media journalists convening in Baltimore, and again in 2016 at Netroots Nation in St Louis.   I considered him a media mentor, and I believe he was prouder that I was when he witnessed me become the 2016 Pundits Cup champ.

I last talked to him during the 2017 Netroots Nation in the ATL, and was stunned when I heard the news.   He is a person who is going to be deeply missed by all of us in the liberal progressive political world 

Rest in power and peace ,Joel
