It will remain very hot and windy -- conditions that help fire spread -- until at least Saturday evening, the National Weather Service office in the state capital Sacramento said late Tuesday. The raging Mendocino Complex fire, comprising twin blazes in the state's north, has now ravaged just over 300,000 acres (120,000 hectares) -- approximately the size of Los Angeles -- in less than two weeks.

This week, we'll remember Jonathan Gold by revisiting our conversation with him. Jonathan's work in food criticism was legendary. In 2007, his work earned him a Pulitzer. To this date, he's still the only food critic to ever earn that honor. When he joined us in 2011, he discussed the one food fear he just couldn't overcome, and how he discovered Los Angeles and the world – one meal at a time. Plus, he threw shade at the burritos from the Mission District in San Francisco.

We'll also revisit our conversation with Beth Ditto from last year. Beth is singer of the band Gossip. Beth talks about the process of creating her solo album, and about her time fronting Gossip. She'll also open up about her queer identity and what it was like setting up punk shows in her small Arkansan town. You can catch her on the road this summer opening for Sam Smith.

And finally, Jesse explains how Sly and the Family Stone made a perfect album, even as they slowly disintegrated as a group.

Remembering food critic Jonathan Gold

This week, we'll remember the late Jonathan Gold by revisiting our conversation with him from 2011. Jonathan died last month of pancreatic cancer at the age of 57.

His work in food criticism was legendary. He was the restaurant critic for the Los Angeles Times. His award-winning work regularly appeared in numerous newspapers including the LA Weekly. His articles and reviews also appeared in Blender, Spin, Rolling Stone and Gourmet magazines.

In 2007, his work earned him a Pulitzer. To this date, he's still the only food critic to ever earn that honor. Along with the Pulitzer, he was also the first food writer to be honored as a National Magazine Award finalist in criticism by the American Society of Magazine Editors

If you're not familiar with Jonathan Gold, a documentary from 2015 called "City of Gold" might be a good place to start. Or you might want to check out the segment he did for This American Life in the late 90's, which revisits his astonishing exploration of mapping Pico Boulevard using his sense of taste.

When he joined Jesse they talked about about the one food fear he just couldn't overcome, and how he discovered Los Angeles one meal at a time. Plus, he threw shade at the burritos from the Mission District in San Francisco.

Friends of Jonathan Gold have organized a online fundraiser to help his wife and children with funeral and other ongoing expenses. You can visit the page for the drive here.

Beth Ditto on Going Solo

Beth is a singer and songwriter. She was born and raised in Searcy, Arkansas and moved to Washington State out of high school and made a name for herself as the singer in Gossip.

The band first broke through in the early 2000s, coming up with dance punk groups the Rapture, LCD Soundsystem, and Liars. But Gossip was different – they were proudly queer, and female led. Gossip broke up in 2016, and in the wake of all that, Beth Ditto has released her first ever solo record called Fake Sugar.

In conversation with Jesse, Beth opens up about her childhood, from setting up punk shows in her small Arkansan town to her move to Olympia, Washington after high school. Beth talks about the process of creating her new solo album, and about her time fronting Gossip.

Beth's album Fake Sugar is available now.

She'll be opening for Sam Smith this summer. Check out the tour dates here.

          THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE rIGHT AND cONSERVATIVES...:      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Why the Left Is So Afraid of Jordan Peterson: The Canadian psychology professor's stardom is evidence that leftism is on the decline--and deeply vulnerable. (CAITLIN FLANAGAN, 8/09/18, The Atlantic)

Two years ago, I walked downstairs and saw one of my teenage sons watching a strange YouTube video on the television.

"What is that?" I asked.

He turned to me earnestly and explained, "It's a psychology professor at the University of Toronto talking about Canadian law."

"Huh?" I said, but he had already turned back to the screen. I figured he had finally gotten to the end of the internet, and this was the very last thing on it.

That night, my son tried to explain the thing to me, but it was a buzzing in my ear, and I wanted to talk about something more interesting. It didn't matter; it turned out a number of his friends--all of them like him: progressive Democrats, with the full range of social positions you would expect of adolescents growing up in liberal households in blue-bubble Los Angeles--had watched the video as well, and they talked about it to one another.  

The boys graduated from high school and went off to colleges where they were exposed to the kind of policed discourse that dominates American campuses. They did not make waves; they did not confront the students who were raging about cultural appropriation and violent speech; in fact, they forged close friendships with many of them. They studied and wrote essays and--in their dorm rooms, on the bus to away games, while they were working out--began listening to more and more podcasts and lectures by this man, Jordan Peterson.

The young men voted for Hillary, they called home in shock when Trump won, they talked about flipping the House, and they followed Peterson to other podcasts--to Sam Harris and Dave Rubin and Joe Rogan. What they were getting from these lectures and discussions, often lengthy and often on arcane subjects, was perhaps the only sustained argument against identity politics they had heard in their lives.

That might seem like a small thing, but it's not. With identity politics off the table, it was possible to talk about all kinds of things--religion, philosophy, history, myth--in a different way. They could have a direct experience with ideas, not one mediated by ideology. All of these young people, without quite realizing it, were joining a huge group of American college students who were pursuing a parallel curriculum, right under the noses of the people who were delivering their official educations.

Because all of this was happening silently, called down from satellites and poured in through earbuds--and not on campus free-speech zones where it could be monitored, shouted down, and reported to the appropriate authorities--the left was late in realizing what an enormous problem it was becoming for it. 

..is that the former have simply embraced the Left's identitarianism, while the latter recognize that the Left/Right is talking anti-Christian/anti-American nonsense.

Según podemos leer en Variety a través de un artículo en el que se explica el actual estado de este peculiar spider-verso sin Spider-Man, el estudio ya tendría en mente una idea bien clara de lo que quieren conseguir. Como bien se intuye, “Venom” es el pistoletazo de salida de este nuevo universo y lo que se dice respecto a esta es que seguramente no tendrá una calificación R debido a que los miembros creativos de Sony piensan que mejor forzar la calificación PG-13 que no pasar a una más restrictiva ya que de esta manera un hipotético cruce con Spider-Man no se sentiría tan forzado.

          Trump's tariffs are hitting the boat industry hard. Maybe Betsy DeVos could talk to him?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Add boatbuilders to the list of American industries taking a beating due to Trump's new tariffs and resulting trade war. A retaliatory European Union tariff of 25 percent is drying up sales overseas, and Trump's aluminum tariffs just happen to hit the thing that small recreational boats need a lot of: aluminum.

A typical pontoon might sell for about $30,000, but that could soon rise to as much as $37,000, according to CEO Doug Smoker. That’s largely because of the rising cost of aluminum, “the No. 1 commodity” that goes into his boats. (Five years ago, Smoker moved to all-American purchasing wherever feasible, but the company is still getting squeezed, because demand for U.S.-made aluminum surged with the tariffs, pushing prices up.)

Nonetheless, Smoker figured the company was in decent shape — until retaliatory tariffs were imposed by Canada, where more than a quarter of his fishing boats are sold. He rushed as much inventory as he could north of the border. But since the levies went into effect July 1, sales there have “dried up.”

Potential boat purchasers may be inured to the notion of chucking money into their new watery hobby, but still: a sudden $7,000 increase in the price of a $30,000 boat is something most purchasers are going to notice, and it's very likely that anyone who does need a recreational boat right-the-heck-now will be waiting until someone, somewhere talks some sense into Rich Orange Trade War Guy. And there are very few people in America who need a recreational boat right-the-heck-now.

While the tariffs are impacting small and large boatbuilders alike—the Los Angeles Times notes a builder of multimillion dollar crafts is suffering as well—there is no word on how these tariffs will affect the sale of fresh new Cayman Islands flags. For that we'll have to ask someone like Trump Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, and so far she's not commenting on any of this.

  •           Why the Democratic Socialists of America Won’t Stop Growing      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    If Salazar makes it to Albany, she will join the ranks of 42 DSA-endorsed candidates who are now or will soon be serving in offices from the Moorhead, Minn., school board to Capitol Hill (that is, if Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wins the general election as handily as she did her primary in New York’s 14th Congressional District). So far this year, local chapters have endorsed at least 110 candidates.

    By the time this article goes to press, DSA may well have 50,000 members across 200 local groups in all 50 states—up from 6,000 members in 2015. The surge in freshly minted socialists came in three waves: First, those energized by Bernie Sanders’ primary run; second, those brought in by Donald Trump’s election and the Women’s March; and third, those inspired by 28-year-old DSA member Ocasio-Cortez’s primary victory in May over incumbent—and Democratic heavyweight—Joe Crowley.

    So what is DSA, exactly, and what is it doing with this growing army?

    DSA’s electoral work has attracted national media attention in the wake of Ocasio-Cortez’s historic win. Yet it’s just one part of a bottom-up approach to politics that sees the ballot box and state power as tools for advancing toward a more radically democratic society. Members—most of them millennials, in small towns and big cities in every corner of the country—are engaged in everything from occupying Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) offices to evangelizing about Medicare for All. Many reporters have tried to divine what DSA believes, be that the group’s policy prescriptions or its ideology. DSA, though—to crib from Karl Marx—isn’t looking merely to interpret the world, but to change it, campaign by campaign, door by door. What’s made DSA’s ascendance remarkable is less its analysis of capitalism than its ability to put people angry about capitalism to work.

    IT’S TELLING THAT, UNLIKE MOST SOCIAList groups, DSA was formed out of a merger—not a sectarian split. In 1982, at the dawn of the Reagan era, the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee (DSOC) and the New America Movement (NAM) combined forces. DSOC had been founded in 1973 by socialist intellectual Michael Harrington and other members of the Socialist Party who had grown disenchanted with political irrelevance. NAM, founded in 1972 by former members of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), was rooted in ’60s counterculture, the New Left and second-wave feminism. (In 1976, members of DSOC and NAM moved to Chicago to found In These Times, and for the next decade the then-newspaper reported diligently on the ins and outs of DSOC, NAM and DSA.)

    The 1980s would prove a tough decade for left politics, the 1990s and 2000s even more so. DSA shed members and closed chapters around the country as a few loyalists and a steady trickle of young recruits kept the organization running.

    Enter Bernie Sanders’ primary campaign and his stalwart identification as a “democratic socialist,” a surprise boon for an organization with those two words in its name. DSA’s commitment to being a pluralistic, “multi-tendency” organization also meant it was open enough to accommodate thousands of newcomers.

    Democratic socialism itself has always been a heterodox term, encompassing everyone from ideological Trotskyists to New Deal Democrats. The surge of new, mostly 20-something members include anarchists, Marxist academics and— most numerously—political neophytes excited about Sanders’ message and frustrated with the Democratic establishment.

    DSA isn’t keen to enforce a strict definition of “democratic socialism”—although mainstream media outlets newly hip to DSA are desperately looking for one. On its website, DSA writes:

    At the root of our socialism is a profound commitment to democracy, as means and end. As we are unlikely to see an immediate end to capitalism tomorrow, DSA fights for reforms today that will weaken the power of corporations and increase the power of working people ...

    Our vision is of a society in which people have a real voice in the choices and relationships that affect the entirety of our lives. We call this vision democratic socialism—a vision of a more free, democratic and humane society.

    Members I spoke with took this to mean everything from taking public goods like healthcare off the private market (along the lines of Scandinavian social democracies) to worker-ownership of the means of production. Central Iowa DSA co-chair Caroline Schoonover was among many to say that democratic socialism means “taking power from the few and giving it to the many.” All saw small-d democracy—people having a say in the decisions that affect them—as central, both in politics and workplaces, and in DSA itself.

    For this story, I spoke with around two dozen DSA members from chapters around the country. The primary source of their excitement was that DSA chapters seemed to be actively working on something, not just sitting around reading Marx. Like the citizen action group Indivisible, which also exploded after the election, DSA let people shake off a feeling of helplessness about the political climate and roll up their sleeves.

    DSA also offers a community. Chapters host regular beach days, parties, fundraisers and social events, like Metro D.C. DSA’s recent “No ICE Cream Social.” If Indivisible was able to connect many alienated, middle-class suburbanites jarred out of their political comfort zone, DSA has provided a home for tens of thousands of downwardly-mobile, debt-ridden millennials grappling with a system that simply isn’t working for them.

    Adam Shuck and Arielle Cohen, 32 and 29, joined Pittsburgh DSA in its infancy; Shuck was among the seven people who first met at a bar in 2016 to talk about getting the chapter together. Each was energized by Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign but disillusioned by his presidency. “I thought we were going to see some kind of New Deal,” Shuck says. The frustration led him at first to join the International Socialist Organization before the Sanders campaign brought him to DSA. While a student at SUNY Purchase, Cohen grew disillusioned with the sausage-making and compromise that created the Affordable Care Act, and organized with Occupy Wall Street before moving to Pittsburgh and finding her way to DSA. Now, Shuck and Cohen co-chair the Pittsburgh chapter.

    Pittsburgh DSA held its first general meeting in December 2016 with around 100 people. Now it has a dizzying number of working groups: a health justice committee campaigning for Medicare for All; reading groups tackling Marx and Engels; an anti-imperialism committee lobbying for legislation criticizing Israel’s occupation of Palestine; a socialist feminist working group exposing crisis pregnancy centers; an ecosocialist group fighting the privatization of the city’s water and sewer system; a housing rights group pushing for protections for renters; and a number of inward-facing groups handling tasks like recruitment and communications.

    The chapter also brought the newly revived DSA one of its early electoral victories, rattling the local Democratic machine. In December 2017, the group threw its weight behind Summer Lee’s campaign to represent House District 34. In the May primary, with the help of DSA and groups like Our Revolution and the Sierra Club, Lee, 30, a recent law school grad, beat Paul Costa, 57, a 19-year incumbent and member of a dynastic Pittsburgh Democratic family.

    Lee had experience working on school board races and on a coordinated campaign to elect Katie McGinty governor and Hillary Clinton president in the 2016 general election, and she was impressed with DSA’s electoral work on Mik Pappas’ judicial campaign. Pappas ran on a platform of ending cash bail and working to end mass incarceration, and won in a landslide, with the help of a dedicated grassroots turnout effort staffed in part by DSA members.

    “They were running 20 or more canvassing shifts a week,” says Lee. “I had never seen that type of energy around magistrate elections. I realized that ideologically we aligned.” She joined DSA shortly thereafter and sought them out as her first endorsement.

    It wasn’t easy. DSA’s candidate endorsement process is a microcosm of its baked-in commitment to direct democracy. For every decision, at every level, there’s deliberate space for members to duke things out, combined with a commitment to ultimately supporting the group decision rather than splitting off into rival factions. The very question of whether to engage in the electoral process—and in particular, to work within the Democratic Party—remains fraught, with many members skeptical of investing limited organizational resources into elections rather than base-building.

    New York City DSA hotly debated whether to endorse Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s challenger from the left, Cynthia Nixon, after she declared herself a democratic socialist. Several dozen DSA members signed a “vote no” statement arguing that universal healthcare and rent control will be won not by electing candidates to office but by “building working-class power that holds [them] accountable,” citing the successful teachers’ strikes in Republican states. As this issue went to press, NYC-DSA chapters were voting on the endorsement.

    “We have folks who distrust electoral work, and even among those that don’t, there are different ways of thinking of how to approach it,” says DSA National Director Maria Svart, 38, a former SEIU organizer. “Everybody appreciates that electoral success only comes when you have an organized base. Having all these tendencies in conversation means that everybody learns from each other.”

    While the endorsement process varies from chapter to chapter, in some cases—including Lee’s—the first step is filling out a lengthy form with quest ions from each of t he chapter’s working groups. Typically, one is whether the candidate identifies as a socialist. Members weigh that alongside specific policy questions (“Do you support universal rent control? Abolishing the police?”) and a range of other concerns: How much of an impact could the chapter have on the race? How will it build the chapter’s capacity and the movement to challenge the capitalist class?

    Next comes the interview process. After filling out Pittsburgh DSA’s questionnaire, Lee was interviewed by a roomful of members. The group voted to endorse both Lee and Sara Innamorato, a state representative candidate, and the two supported one another’s campaigns.

    Ocasio-Cortez, in New York, jumped through even more hoops. Because her congressional district spans the Bronx and Queens DSA chapters, she had five interviews: with the electoral committees and membership of each branch, and then the citywide convention. “We put her through hell,” jokes Michael Kinnucan, a DSA member now comanaging the state Senate campaign of Julia Salazar (whom the organization endorsed alongside Ocasio-Cortez in a parallel process).

    Abdullah Younus, co-chair of NYC-DSA and a member of DSA’s National Electoral Committee, explains that the extensive endorsement process isn’t just a means of vetting candidates, but of building members’ commitment to them. “It makes it a lot easier to have the same folks who write the questions come out and knock for those candidates,” he says. “They’re talking about work they’re invested in.”

    SALAZAR, 28, ESTIMATES THAT SOME 800 DSA MEMbers live in and around her district, which has translated into hundreds of volunteers spreading the word about her September primary. Even in her short time with the group (she joined in late 2016), she’s seen a change in how fellow leftists relate to electoral politics. “I think part of it is people seeing the term ‘democratic socialist’ normalized in the electoral realm, through Bernie mostly, at least initially, and so seeing it as an actually viable strategy,” she told me between knocking doors.

    Though she’d worked on legislative campaigns as a staff organizer with Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, Salazar only recently began to think about electoral work. “It’s not something I ever thought about before—not just for myself, but in seeing leadership development in community organizing as a path toward seizing state power,” she says. “That sounds like a jump, right? But ultimately that’s the goal.”

    Thanks in part to the Sanders campaign and Ocasio-Cortez’s stunning upset, that goal feels more within reach now than it has since the days of the Socialist Party’s Eugene Debs. Big, universal programs like a federal job guarantee or Medicare for All draw overwhelming popular support. And small, local races offer an opportunity for the grassroots to tip the balance.

    Establishment candidates in Democratic-controlled cities effectively depend on low turnout. Their political consultants tend to rely more on advertising and glossy mailers, and less on actually talking to people—particularly people who don’t usually vote. Mobilizing even a few thousand new voters in that context, then, is a fairly straightforward formula for victory. When DSA member Lee Carter won a seat in Virginia’s House of Delegates in November 2017, he beat his Republican opponent by 9 points—a margin of 1,850 votes.

    “Our party structure protects incumbency, and relies on an ignorant electorate,” Summer Lee says, noting how much time her campaign spent educating voters about the election itself. “If everybody were voting, we’d have a completely different system.”

    Depending on the city, DSA can offer a large, self-organized volunteer base to candidates who navigate its endorsement process. Pittsburgh DSA estimates that its volunteers knocked on some 70,000 doors through the course of Lee’s campaign. Turnout in Lee’s district was 14 percent higher than in others around Allegheny County and 54 percent higher than in the last midterm election.

    Still, it’d be nearly impossible for DSA-endorsed candidates for higher offices to make do with only DSA’s support, and they often work alongside other organizations like Justice Democrats, Our Revolution and the Working Families Party—especially for bigger races. Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress, for example, convinced OcasioCortez to run and helped staff her campaign, and she gained the backing of Black Lives Matter-Bronx and People for Bernie Sanders, among others. Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign reached 120,000 doors overall.

    By being an organization that does much more than campaign for candidates, DSA hopes to upend the notoriously transactional, short-term nature of electoral work, enabling its members and elected officials to build relationships with and commitments to their communities that extend beyond election day. DSA is still figuring out how to build independent political organizations to hold the politicians it helps elect accountable. Thus far they’ve relied on their close ties with dyed-in-the-wool DSA members-turned-candidates like Lee Carter. DSA, Carter says, has “been the core of my support since I’ve been in the legislature. I still go to meetings whenever I can, and they help me get in contact with other groups.”

    DSA member, Hawai’i state representative and now U.S. House candidate Kaniela Ing says he hopes that DSA remains “part of an independent Left, and does not get too caught up in electoral and legislative politics”—and that it holds politicians to account, himself included.

    “I’m a movement candidate,” Ing says. “Hopefully my role is to help push whatever movements are building over the finish line. Elected officials really like to take too much credit for bills they pass that are really the result of the public waking up and forcing politicians to act.” He says he hopes to have regular check-ins with DSA should he make it to Washington.

    ELECTORAL WORK ALSO FEEDS INTO DSA’S OTHER campaigns. Pittsburgh DSA’s membership swelled in the wake of Lee and Innamorato’s wins. “[Email] list building, data tracking, how to talk to people at the doors— that all helps build the muscle that can also help with canvassing for housing justice,” Shuck says.

    “When we canvass an area, we’re often knocking a door many times, whether for a candidate, for Medicare for All or for housing justice,” Cohen adds. “At this point, people know us when we come to the door, and they know what DSA is.”

    NYC-DSA’s Abdullah Younus sees electoral work as a training ground. He says that canvassers for the New York Health Act, legislation to create a statewide single-payer system, “got skilled on this kind of work by going through the electoral working group.”

    For all the recent attention to DSA’s upstart electoral success, it’s only one part of the group’s work nationwide. Many chapters don’t engage at all with elections, or are just starting to think about whether they would like to run candidates. Michael I. Esealuka, co-chair of New Orleans DSA, says, “It would be difficult for us as a small chapter to develop the type of accountability mechanisms we need to hold people [we elect] accountable to our socialist vision.”

    Prior to the victories of Carter, Lee and then OcasioCortez, DSA was perhaps best known for agitating to push Medicare for All into the national spotlight—a campaign adopted by delegates from around the country at DSA’s biennial convention in August 2017 as one of three national political priorities, alongside building electoral power and stronger and more militant unions. Forty-five chapters across 20 states held a weekend of action for Medicare for All in April, tabling at farmers’ markets, hosting public events and, as always, canvassing. On the labor front, DSA chapters in West Virginia, Kentucky and Oklahoma raised money for strike funds to support the militant teacher walkouts this spring, and the national DSA sent an email encouraging members around the country to contribute what they could.

    Many individual chapters have their own priorities, reflecting local concerns and political climates. Providence DSA, for example, is campaigning for more democratic control over investor-owned electric utilities. New Orleans DSA has focused on base-building work that includes running clinics to help people deal with medical debt, coordinating with the AFL-CIO in developing young rank-and-file labor leaders, and mending broken brake lights, an excuse used by police in the traffic stops that can be “especially perilous and life-disrupting to undocumented immigrants and PoC [people of color],” as the chapter explains on Facebook.

    Because there are big DSA chapters in cities with expensive housing stock—Los Angeles, Chicago and the Bay Area, for instance—the fight for affordable housing has emerged as a major priority. “Housing justice is probably the biggest issue in Los Angeles; the homelessness crisis is at a tipping point,” says Arielle Sallai, a member of DSA Los Angeles’ steering committee. DSA-LA and other California chapters are canvassing to pass Proposition 10, an initiative on the ballot in November that would loosen a statewide limit on rent control. Similarly, Chicago DSA is supporting a campaign to overturn Illinois’ rent control ban, with the back ing of A lder man and DSA member Carlos Ramirez-Rosa.

    On many issues, including housing and homelessness, DSA chapters are well aware that their members often don’t look like the populations most directly affected. Although DSA does not have up-to-date member demographics, it has historically leaned white and male.

    Coalition-building is one way to correct for this. “Housing work is a great chance to be part of a radical coalition and talk to as many individuals as possible,” Sallai says. DSA-LA has teamed up with local groups like the LA Tenants Union that have been working for years against gentrification.

    Esealuka, a black woman, is frank about the fact that New Orleans DSA is a majority white organization in a majority black city. “It’s a problem, obviously, but it’s nothing that can’t be overcome,” she says. “It’s not like we have to write DSA off because it’s majority white and majority male. … Because we have 45,000 members [nationwide], we have so much potential to do good in this country. It’s just a matter of being more intentional about embedding ourselves into things that matter to working-class people.”

    Noting the high proportion of women taking on leadership roles in her chapter, Esealuka suggests that all chapters equip members with the organizing skills to develop the leadership of women and people of color. Internally, many chapters have also created specific spaces, such as the national Afrosocialist Caucus or Socialist Feminist working groups, for DSA members who aren’t white or male to feel welcome and build community.

    THOUGH SEN. TAMMY DUCKWORTH (D-ILL.) INFAmously said after Ocasio-Cortez’s primary win that socialist politics can’t work in the Midwest, they’ve certainly found an audience in the heartland. Iowa, for instance, has the highest number of DSA chapters per capita of any state. Members in chapters outside of big blue coastal cities may talk about socialism a little differently than their counterparts and run different campaigns, but they agree on the basics of what they’re fighting for. Chapters in blue cities like Denver are quick to say they don’t automatically find a warm reception just because they’re talking to Democrats, and chapters in red or purple states note they don’t necessarily face open hostility. For the past two years, Central Iowa DSA has marched in the state fair parade through Des Moines, flanked by Trump floats and those from local businesses. “You get thumbs up about Medicare for All and everybody needing healthcare,” says cochair Joe Ellerbroek. “You might get a middle finger at an ICE protest every once in a while.”

    After decades of socialism being nonexistent in mainstream political debates, however, most people simply are not familiar with the term itself. “I didn’t know I was a democratic socialist when I decided to run, and I didn’t know that this group existed,” says Summer Lee. “I just knew that these policies are policies that we need. When you go to black communities, we really are more inclined to socialism. We don’t always have that language in our communities, but we know that these policies are what’s needed for our communities.”

    Asked how they talk about democratic socialism with voters, all seven DSA-endorsed candidates I interviewed offered some variation on the same answer: “I don’t lead with that.”

    Ocasio-Cortez says she opts instead to “show people what we’re fighting for. What I talk about is Medicare for All, tuition-free public college and housing as a human right. In my interpretation of what democratic socialism is, it is the fight for a basic level of dignity that our society refuses to violate.”

    Ing says, “Usually, when I talk about money in politics or the government not representing us, that transcends any left-right values. Most people see the world from bottom versus top: Are you with us, or them?”

    DSA candidates running for office and DSA members knocking doors, then, articulate socialism as a common sense set of practices and beliefs: swearing off corporate donations, supporting big, universal programs that promise to redistribute society’s resources more equitably, and returning decisions to the hands of the people most directly affected. As DSA makes inroads selling the public on the virtues of democratic socialism and infiltrating the halls of power, it will also figure out what to do once it gets there.

    For the moment, DSA members and candidates are making the road to a 21st-century American socialism by walking it—and knocking on a few hundred thousand doors along the way.

    Published in: Cruise News

    Norwegian Bliss in Vallarta

    A robust macroeconomic environment that shows no sign of weakening is driving earnings performance for Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, according to President and CEO Frank Del Rio.

    He said 2019 bookings had recently accelerated at higher prices. As of June 30, advanced ticket sales were up 26 percent, Del Rio said, with capacity growth up 9 percent, setting up what could be a positive financial performance. 

    Del Rio was speaking on the company’s Thursday morning second quarter earnings call, where the news was good as Norwegian exceeded earnings expectations and increased its full year adjusted EPS guidance.

    Total revenue increased to $1.52 billion from $1.34 billion the prior year, with gains in both ticket price and onboard revenue.

    Net income was also well up, reported at $226.7 million compared to $198.5 million last year.

    Fuel cost was up, but the company saw reduced fuel consumption thanks to better performance than expected from new ships and energy savings initiatives.

    With the Bliss sailing from Seattle for her inaugural season, Del Rio said the ship was breaking onboard revenue records “sailing after sailing.”

    The company’s Alaska capacity is up 15 percent this summer, Del Rio said, with ticket pricing up 25 percent.

    A positive economic environment in North America is leading to a wealth effect, he said, helping drive bookings, the booking window and onboard spend.

    A “strategic shift in deployment” that is taking the Norwegian Joy away from the Chinese market has led to a domino effect in ship deployment that will drive earnings, putting assets in underserved markets.

    The Joy will move into Alaska, a mature market, with Del Rio adding that the company has “time and time again” proved it has been able to add capacity and drive growth in net yields.

    For the winter season, the Joy will move to Los Angeles, offering Mexican Riviera and Panama Canal sailings, a market Del Rio said was underserved. 

    As for the industry’s supply growth, Del Rio pointed to Norwegian’s acquisition of Prestige, where the company absorbed outside supply while growing net yield.


              Norwegian Reports 2018 Q2 Earnings      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Published in: Cruise News

    Norwegian Bliss in Los Angeles

    Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018, as well as provided guidance for the third quarter and full year 2018.

    The company generated GAAP net income of $226.7 million or EPS of $1.01 compared to $198.5 million or $0.87 in the prior year. 

    Adjusted Net Income was $271.9 million or Adjusted EPS of $1.21 compared to $232.7 million or $1.02 in the prior year.  Adjusted EPS outperformed guidance by $0.19.

    Total revenue increased 13.2% to $1.5 billion. Gross Yield increased 4.3%.  Net Yield increased 4.0% on a Constant Currency basis, outperforming guidance by 200 basis points.

    The company expects to generate record earnings for full year 2018 and has increased its outlook above the high end of its previous guidance range, with Adjusted EPS now expected to be in the range of $4.70 to $4.80. This includes an expected $0.10 impact, split evenly between revenue and expense, as a result of the recently announced itinerary optimization initiatives which will benefit future periods. Excluding this impact, the midpoint of Adjusted EPS guidance would have increased to approximately $4.85.

    2018 full year Net Yield growth guidance on a Constant Currency basis increased 75 basis points from prior guidance to approximately 3.25%, or 125 basis points from the company’s initial full year outlook provided in February.

    “The continuation of the robust booking environment from our core source markets, combined with the successful execution of demand creation strategies drove higher pricing across all three brands, resulting in second quarter revenue, yield and earnings growth well above expectations,” said Frank Del Rio, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.  “Global consumer cruise demand shows no signs of slowing as evidenced by solid organic growth and the hugely successful introduction of Norwegian Bliss, whose record-breaking performance surpassed our high expectations. The strong demand environment is expected to continue driving higher pricing in the back half of the year, leading to an increase of our full year 2018 Adjusted EPS outlook to a range of $4.70 to $4.80, well above the initial guidance range set at the beginning of the year.”

    Second Quarter 2018 Results

    GAAP net income was $226.7 million or EPS of $1.01 compared to $198.5 million or $0.87 in the prior year.  The company generated Adjusted Net Income of $271.9 million or Adjusted EPS of $1.21 compared to $232.7 million or $1.02 in the prior year. 

    Revenue increased 13.2% to $1.5 billion compared to $1.3 billion in 2017.  Net Revenue increased 13.7% to $1.2 billion compared to $1.0 billion in 2017.  These increases were primarily attributed to strong organic pricing growth across all core markets along with an increase in capacity days due to the addition of Norwegian Joy to the fleet in the second quarter of 2017 and Norwegian Bliss to the fleet in the second quarter of 2018, partially offset by three scheduled dry-docks during the period.  Gross Yield increased 4.3% and Net Yield increased 4.0% on a Constant Currency basis and 4.7% on an as reported basis.

    Total cruise operating expense increased 14.7% in 2018 compared to 2017 primarily due to the increase in Capacity Days.  Gross Cruise Costs per Capacity Day increased 6.0% due to an increase in maintenance and repairs including Dry-dock expenses and an increase in marketing, general and administrative expenses. Adjusted Net Cruise Cost Excluding Fuel per Capacity Day increased 7.4% on a Constant Currency basis and 8.4% on an as reported basis.

    Fuel price per metric ton, net of hedges increased to $481 from $469 in 2017.  The company reported fuel expense of $95.2 million in the period. 

    Interest expense, net was $73.0 million in 2018 compared to $64.2 million in 2017. The increase in interest expense reflects additional debt in connection with the delivery of Norwegian Bliss in April 2018, the delivery of Norwegian Joy in April 2017, Project Leonardo financing, as well as higher interest rates due to an increase in LIBOR, partially offset by the benefit from the full redemption in October 2017 of our 4.625% Senior Notes due 2020 and $135.0 million partial redemption in April 2018 of our 4.75% Senior Notes due 2021. Also included in 2018 is the $6.3 million of redemption premium and write-off of fees in connection with the partial redemption mentioned above.

    Other income (expense), net was income of $12.9 million in 2018 compared to an expense of $5.6 million in 2017. In 2018, the income was primarily related to gains on foreign currency exchange. In 2017, the expense was primarily related to losses on foreign currency exchange and unrealized and realized losses on derivatives.

    Company Outlook

    “2018 is well on track for yet another year of record financial performance. Furthermore, robust global demand has accelerated year-over-year gains in occupancy and pricing for full year 2019, which remains well ahead of this year’s record levels across all three brands,” continued Del Rio.  “We have a high level of confidence and strong conviction in our outlook for 2019 and beyond as demonstrated by our recent global redeployment initiatives, the bolstering of our measured growth profile with the confirmation of two additional Leonardo Class ships for delivery in 2026 and 2027, as well as the opportunistic execution of $200 million in share repurchases in the quarter, bringing the year-to-date total for share repurchases to over $450 million.”

    Bach Concertos (vinyl reissue) Hilary Hahn, violin Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra Jeffrey Kahane, conductor
    Attention vinyl lovers! Here Hilary Hahn’s first recording on Deutsche Grammophon of Bach Violin Concertos, available for the first time on vinyl. Originally released in 2003, the album was a triumph for Hahn, praised by Classics Today for "the chamber-like interplay that produces a more ‘authentic’ impression than many performances using period instruments." BELOW: Hilary Hahn plays the Bach Double with concertmaster Margaret Batjer and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.
    Mark-Anthony Turnage Double Violin Concerto Vadim Repin, violin Daniel Hope, violin Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic
    Mark-Anthony Turnage Double Violin Concerto, "Shadow Walker," is dedicated to artist Mark Wallinger, and the title is drawn from a Wallinger video in which the artist films his shadow as he walks along Shaftesbury Avenue in London. The disembodied shadow takes on its own life in relation to the public on the streets. "The idea of shadowing can take many musical forms, such as through canonic writing and the imitation of intervals, though I haven't gone as far as composing a fugue," Turnage said. "The string sound of Vadim Repin and Daniel Hope should blend particularly well, almost like two aspects of the same identity. There isn't a strict hierarchical relationship with one violin the shadow of the other - it is much more equal and fluid." BELOW: An excerpt from the album.
    Engage Josh Modney, violin Sam Pluta, electronics Kate Soper, soprano Eric Wubbels, piano
    Comprised of three programs, Engage as a whole presents a body of work that has both defined and been shaped by Modney’s distinctly 21st century violin performance practice, exploring new technical and expressive frontiers on the instrument. The first program includes Sam Pluta’s Jem Altieri with a Ring Modulator Circuit, for violin and live electronics (2011); Taylor Brook’s Vocalise, for violin solo with drone (2009); Kate Soper’s Cipher, for soprano and violin (2011); and Anthony Braxton’s Composition No. 222 (1998). The second program pairs Modney’s adventurous interpretation of J.S. Bach’s Ciaccona (1720) in Just Intonation with Eric Wubbels’s “the children of fire come looking for fire”, for violin and prepared piano (2012). The final program features Josh Modney’s Violin Solos (2017). BELOW: From the album, "Vocalise" by Taylor Brook.

              LeBron James sports new Lakers uniform, shares message for haters       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    There was a Lebron James Lakers jersey sighting and the picture was not Photoshopped. 

    LeBron James posted the first photo of himself in a Lakers Jersey and also shared a message to anyone who may not like him or his choice to play for the Los Angeles Lakers.

    James, who decided to take his talents to the Los Angeles Lakers for the upcoming 2018-2019 season, posted photos to his Instagram Story wearing the iconic purple and gold Lakers uniform.

    In one of the photos, James, 33, was sitting in a chair inside what appears to be a dressing room and is pictured laughing with “U mad huh?!?!” written on the image. While it’s not clear exactly what James meant by the message, it can easily be taken as him talking directly to anyone who may not like him or his choice to play in L.A. The NBA star recently opened a school in his hometown and also announced he will be the executive producer for a three-part Showtime documentary series called "Shut Up and Dribble." 

    In another photo, James drew arrows pointing to himself wearing his official LeBron James Lakers jersey and wrote, “#IMKING and #LakeShow.”

    LeBron James wears unreleased Kobe Nike Protro sneakers

    It also appears that the now-Lakers superstar is paying homage to another former Lakers star. In one of the photos, James posted a close-up of his new sneakers. James is pictured wearing a pair of the Kobe 1 Protro “Undefeated” sneaker. On that photo, he wrote, “Oh my bad I didn’t properly introduce these on the last post.” The unreleased kicks he was wearing features a gold camo print with “UNDFTD” in purple. It’s not clear if these sneakers will ever hit the shelves, but if you love the different variations of the Lakers gold and purple colorway, you can expect Nike to release updated versions of his Nike signature sneaker this season. 

    LeBron James in Lakers practice Jersey

    On Thursday we all got a chance to see the three-time NBA champion in an official Los Angeles Lakers practice jersey. LeBron James was spotted working out with his new team wearing the official practice jersey of the Lakers in purple.

    Два важных анонса были сделаны во время фестиваля в Локарно. Во-первых, объявлен номинант от Швейцарии на премию «Оскар» - им стал фильм «Эльдорадо» режиссера Маркуса Имхофа. Во-вторых, в Локарно последовали примеру Каннского фестиваля и подписали хартию о гендерном равенстве в кино.

    Deux grandes nouvelles ont été annoncées lors du Locarno Festival. Premièrement, le film «Eldorado» de Markus Imhoof représentera la Suisse aux Oscars. Et en deuxième lieu, à l’instar de Cannes, le festival a signé une charte pour l'égalité femmes-hommes dans le cinéma.

    Хартия о равенстве и разнообразии была составлена по инициативе французской общественной организации «5050 Pour 2020», которая выступает против дискриминации в отношении женщин в киноиндустрии. В мае этого года идею поддержал Каннский кинофестиваль. В присутствии президента жюри Кейт Бланшетт хартию подписали программный директор фестиваля Тьерри Фремо, а также Эдуар Вэнтро и Шарль Тессон, руководители секций «Двухнедельник режиссеров» и «Неделя критики».

    На этой неделе в движение за права женщин в кино включился и Локарно, обязавшийся содействовать тому, чтобы женщины и мужчины были на равных представлены в программе, руководстве и жюри фестиваля. Отметим, что в этом году за «Золотого леопарда» борются только три женщины-режиссера, а кандидатов-мужчин в четыре раз больше. Подписать хартию фестивалю предложили активистки из объединения Swiss Women’s Audiovisual Network, которое поддерживает женщин в кино и на телевидении. Режиссер Урсула Майер назвала этот момент историческим, с ней согласна и директор Федерального офиса культуры Изабель Шассо.

    Другая важная новость касается швейцарского претендента на премию «Оскар». За одну из главнейших кинонаград в мире поборется документальная лента «Эльдорадо» Маркуса Имхофа, которая была показана 5 августа в Локарно. Жюри Федерального офиса культуры назвало фильм драмой, которая потрясает и которую невозможно забыть. В картине рассказывается о том, какой путь проделывают африканские беженцы, чтобы добраться до Европы, и о гуманитарном кризисе, который прямо сейчас разворачивается на наших глазах.

    Для режиссера Маркуса Имхофа истории о беженцах имеют глубоко личный характер. В 1945 году, когда Маркус был маленьким мальчиком, его семья взяла на воспитание итальянскую беженку Джованну. Она была из другой страны, говорила на другом языке, была абсолютно другой, и она стала родной для швейцарской семьи Имхоф. Наверное, именно этот детский опыт и научил Маркуса не бояться «других», ведь, несмотря на все различия, «другие» – такие же люди, как и все остальные. Как и любому человеку, им хочется жить в безопасности и мире, но им в этом праве нередко отказывают.

    70 лет спустя в Европу снова прибывают беженцы, и Маркус не может оставаться равнодушным к этой теме. Он взял камеру и сел на борт корабля, участвовавшего в операции по спасению беженцев в Средиземном мире «Mare Nostrum». Проект начался после того, как осенью 2013 года у европейских берегов затонули несколько переполненных беженцами судов, в результате чего погибли сотни человек. Операция проходила в течение года, и за это время были спасены около 150 000 мигрантов.

    В своем фильме Имхоф показывает то, что обычно никто не видит: в каких условиях работают спасатели, куда отправляют мигрантов, как выглядят центры временного содержания, какие формальные и юридические процедуры им нужно пройти, что случается с мигрантами, которым отказали в предоставлении убежища, и что ждет тех, кто получил желанный статус беженца. Вместе с Маркусом зритель узнает, чем занимаются представители Красного креста, как работают врачи на корабле, что движет добровольцами из благотворительных организаций, о чем мечтают мигранты, ожидающие документов в бернском центре для беженцев, что обо всем этом думают таможенники, которые охраняют швейцарско-итальянскую границу и отправляют нелегальных мигрантов обратно, какие настроения царят в Швейцарском секретариате по миграции. Создатели фильма надеются, что после просмотра «Эльдорадо» зрители попытаются поставить себя на место беженцев и, возможно, станут более терпимыми к проблемам других.

    Войдет ли «Эльдорадо» в шорт-лист, станет известно 22 января 2019 г. Напомним, что Имхоф уже имеет одну номинацию на «Оскар». В 1981 году его картина об ограничении потока беженцев в Швейцарии во время Второй мировой войны «Das Boot ist voll» (нем. «Лодка полна») претендовала на звание лучшего фильма на иностранном языке. Тогда американская академия отдала награду венгерской ленте «Мефисто», но, может быть, в этом году Швейцарии повезет больше.

    That's the city mentality. You've pretty much stripped your own state so why not go destroy others. Nature is a fine balance and all humans have done is destroy and take without putting back. How many species have been extincted through mans' greed and depraved indifference to life? All for the sake of a head to hang on their wall or the next strip mall. And I am not referring to those that do hunting in the humane way. They are doing it for food, not the enjoyment of killing. All you have to do is look at Los Angeles to see the destruction that's been done. Smog alerts, gangs, lack of any humanity because it's all about self. I say this from the influx of Californians we've received because they wanted more for less than they could purchase there. They are the most rude, inconsiderate and intolerable bunch of people I have ever met. They've ruined their state and now are doing the same here.

    Ever wanted the inside scoop on crashing that exclusive party, getting better than average dope, and spending the night with someone you'd be ashamed to be seen with the next morning?

    Filmmaker Paul Sapiano answers your questions on these and many other critical areas of the party lifestyle in this satiric comedy. Presented in part as a faux-documentary and in part as the story of a typical night in the life of a handful of Los Angeles nightlife mavens.

    The Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down offers "useful" advice on getting into the club, scamming free drinks, tipping the bar staff, dealing with uncooperative drug dealers, talking your way into an all-star after party, how to attract women by pretending to be gay, and getting rid of last night's pickup in the cold light of the morning.

    The Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down received its world premiere at the 2006 Los Angeles Film Festival.

    Bach Concertos (vinyl reissue) Hilary Hahn, violin Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra Jeffrey Kahane, conductor
    Attention vinyl lovers! Here Hilary Hahn’s first recording on Deutsche Grammophon of Bach Violin Concertos, available for the first time on vinyl. Originally released in 2003, the album was a triumph for Hahn, praised by Classics Today for "the chamber-like interplay that produces a more ‘authentic’ impression than many performances using period instruments." BELOW: Hilary Hahn plays the Bach Double with concertmaster Margaret Batjer and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.
    Mark-Anthony Turnage Double Violin Concerto Vadim Repin, violin Daniel Hope, violin Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic
    Mark-Anthony Turnage Double Violin Concerto, "Shadow Walker," is dedicated to artist Mark Wallinger, and the title is drawn from a Wallinger video in which the artist films his shadow as he walks along Shaftesbury Avenue in London. The disembodied shadow takes on its own life in relation to the public on the streets. "The idea of shadowing can take many musical forms, such as through canonic writing and the imitation of intervals, though I haven't gone as far as composing a fugue," Turnage said. "The string sound of Vadim Repin and Daniel Hope should blend particularly well, almost like two aspects of the same identity. There isn't a strict hierarchical relationship with one violin the shadow of the other - it is much more equal and fluid." BELOW: An excerpt from the album.
    Engage Josh Modney, violin Sam Pluta, electronics Kate Soper, soprano Eric Wubbels, piano
    Comprised of three programs, Engage as a whole presents a body of work that has both defined and been shaped by Modney’s distinctly 21st century violin performance practice, exploring new technical and expressive frontiers on the instrument. The first program includes Sam Pluta’s Jem Altieri with a Ring Modulator Circuit, for violin and live electronics (2011); Taylor Brook’s Vocalise, for violin solo with drone (2009); Kate Soper’s Cipher, for soprano and violin (2011); and Anthony Braxton’s Composition No. 222 (1998). The second program pairs Modney’s adventurous interpretation of J.S. Bach’s Ciaccona (1720) in Just Intonation with Eric Wubbels’s “the children of fire come looking for fire”, for violin and prepared piano (2012). The final program features Josh Modney’s Violin Solos (2017). BELOW: From the album, "Vocalise" by Taylor Brook.

              The New York Times’s redesign proves journalism matters more than ever      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    The New York Times is rolling out a new homepage, one that will show off the staples of its digital journalism: its briefings, the audio newscast “The Daily,” newsletters, and groups of stories that editors have chosen.

    The central goal of the redesign was to bring the Times’s desktop experience in line with its suite of mobile apps, which were updated in October of last year. But it was also to understand how people like to read their news in 2018. To find out, the design team talked to 40 readers in New York, Los Angeles, and Houston and asked them questions such as, “How do you start your day?” and “What helps you stay up to speed on current events?” The design is a reaction to these people’s main answers: They come to the Times to catch up on news, of course–but they also want to hear analysis of major events and discover unexpected stories (perhaps to brighten their days after reading about national politics).

    The challenge for the designers was to implement a system that would actually help people find what they were looking for on the homepage. The prototyping process was extensive. The team tested out real-time prototypes with 4% of readers and got 15,300 survey responses before doing more in-depth sessions with about 60 people. Some concepts had less text, which in theory would encourage scrolling, but readers didn’t like how empty those designs felt. Other layouts had too many photos–the team realized that images of politicians in suits get boring and repetitive, so those were downsized a bit. Eventually, they settled on a new homepage that still packs a lot of information onto your screen, but also breaks out into sections such as “Most Popular,” “Discovery,” “Features,” and “In other news,” which highlights stories not focused on the United States.

    [Screenshot: courtesy The New York Times]

    While the redesign was focused on making it easier for readers to find stories,  it also simplified the process of actually running the homepage for the newspaper’s editors. To understand this piece of their task, the paper’s designers sat with the homepage editors for a full day, watching how they worked as news broke. They ended up building a backend tool for the editors so that they could group related stories in a wide variety of formats together on the homepage.

    In a world dominated by social media, the paper of record clearly still believes that its homepage, the digital equivalent of A1, plays a role in delivering its journalism effectively. But this is also the last piece of a larger redesign that’s been happening behind the scenes over the past several years–it’s no surprise that the Times prioritized its mobile apps and is only now getting to the homepage.

    Still, the redesign is a gesture of strength for a news organization that continues to grow during a shaky period for media. The Times brought in more than $1 billion in subscription revenues in 2017. The paper has 2.9 million digital subscribers.

    The Times will start rolling out the new homepage over the next few weeks.

              The Sound Of Silence: Female Composers At The Symphony      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Tom Huizenga

    The Women's March and #MeToo movement have helped raise the volume for women's voices across the country. But one place where women still struggle to be heard is in America's symphony halls. Take a look at which composers the top U.S. orchestras are performing in the upcoming season, and you will find some surprising disparities.

    The Chicago Symphony Orchestra will be presenting some 54 composers throughout its 2018-19 season. Want to guess how many of those composers are women? The number is zero. Same goes for the Philadelphia Orchestra.

    "Obviously zero is a very damning number," says Jeremy Rothman, vice president of artistic planning for the Philadelphia Orchestra. "In this one year, we did have that particular oversight, which we are rectifying."

    To be fair, Philadelphia has programmed women composers in the past (so has Chicago), including works by Jennifer Higdon. She's lucky; her music gets played a lot. This year she has three concertos premiering, including her Concerto for Low Brass, which was heard in Philadelphia in February. Higdon is a 55-year-old Pulitzer and Grammy winner and a Philadelphia resident whose music is accessible to both orchestras and audiences.

    Higdon's most popular work is blue cathedral and it's on tap next season for the Cleveland Orchestra. But out of 41 composers the symphony will present, Higdon's is the only one by a woman.

    Success has given Higdon some perspective. While orchestras play her music, she says they seem deaf to hundreds of other women composers. "The way of thinking in orchestras is so built on an old tradition," she says. "They just assume that there are certain pieces they need to program, certain composers that have been done time and time again, and they just don't think about programming women."

    And when they do program women, it tends to be the ones who are already successful, like Higdon, or Julia Wolfe, who won a Pulitzer in 2015 for her oratorio Anthracite Fields. The New York Philharmonic will play the world premiere of a new work by Wolfe in January. But, out of 49 composers, Wolfe is joined by only one other woman in the upcoming season. It's a ratio that doesn't sit well with Higdon.

    "Heck, you know what? Half of humanity is made up of women," she says. "So why is it we only see one to two percent of the programming of women?"

    One answer to Higdon's question comes from Jesse Rosen, president and CEO of the League of American Orchestras. "If you go back in time, this was not a viable career for a woman to become a composer," Rosen explains. "And so, you have a canon that, by definition, does not have a lot of women composers in it."

    And so, you end up with tons of Mozart and Beethoven.

    Another problem, Rosen adds, is that orchestras have to please a lot of constituents: audiences, board members, marketing departments and donors. Then there are the conductors and artistic directors — most of them men. They're the ones who choose the music. But the bottom line for orchestras is money.

    "They rely, to a significant degree, on their box office and their subscribers. And you've got very thin financial margins you're trying to manage. So I think it's part of life in the arts," Rosen says.

    The real question for composers, though, is how to break into the exclusive group whose music gets performed? Rothman says this question is equally relevant for young composers, composers of color and women.

    "We have to be giving composers the right tools to compose successful works --being able to workshop their pieces," Rothman notes. "Simply commissioning pieces and performing them once is not going to be the solution."

    And for orchestras to simply check off the female composer box once or twice a year isn't going to cut it either, according to Rosen. "If you don't have a consciousness that says, 'We value diversity in all its manifestations,' the default is going to be you're going to end up with a lot more white men," Rosen says.

    Among the top American orchestras programming more than just one or two women next season are the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. But they still come up short. Each is presenting just six women out of a total of 45. One composer on both of these rosters is Kaija Saariaho, a Finnish native who gets played more in Europe than she does in the U.S.

    Some might caution that crunching numbers for a single season doesn't provide a large enough picture. But Higdon knows the numbers have been lousy for years. It's up to us ticket holders, she says, to ask for something better.

    "If you want to hear something by a woman, say something," Higdon insists. "I think the scene has to change. I say give it a try. There's a lot of fantastic music out there, why miss out on it?"

              Kamasi Washington's Heaven Exists In His Mind      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    David Greene, Justin Richmond

    Kamasi Washington's idea of heaven is the world he creates and retreats to in his mind. The jazz torchbearer's double album Heaven and Earth, out today, represents that inward heaven versus his outward reality on Earth.

    Growing up in Los Angeles, Washington was known in school for playing renditions of Boyz II Men and Jodeci songs on his clarinet. Now, he's mentioned in the same breathe as rapper Kendrick Lamar — Washington's saxophone skills can be heard on Lamar's 2015 album To Pimp A Butterfly — as major players in a larger celebration of black culture.

    "I feel like we're in that turning point right now," Washington says. "It's been a long time coming. It's weird, it's like culturally we've been appreciated in a certain sense, but not necessarily celebrated. And now we're going to celebrate the culture."

    For Heaven and Earth, Washington tapped into creative escapes in the form of the video game Street Fighter and movie Fist of Fury, both of which found their way into song titles ("Fists of Fury," "Street Fighter Mas") on the album. Washington tells NPR's David Greene about the movie's influence and explains the deeper sentiments expressed in his music. Read the edited interview highlights below and listen to their full conversation at the audio link.


    Interview Highlights

    On the meaning of "Fists of Fury"

    At a certain point, when there's a barrier between you and what's right, eventually you have to decide you're not going to allow yourself to be subjugated. For me, that song is that decision and recognition of the fact that I see what's happening in the world, and I'm no longer going to wait for someone else to fix these things that are happening in the world. I'm going to do it myself.

    On his 2017 LP Harmony of Difference

    Harmony of Difference to me was an opportunity to celebrate one another. And "Fists of Fury" is an opportunity for us to protect one another. If you look up, and you see that all of a sudden the world is really coming down on people with brown hair, I would think the people with black hair would look at that and go, "Well, that could be me and so, I shouldn't stand for that any more than those people with brown hair stand for it." Harmony of Difference is about appreciating the fact we have people with brown hair, black hair, blonde hair, green, blue.

    On empathy

    This precious thing of empathy and love and understanding is something we have to hold and appreciate and protect. That's why I was saying Harmony of Differenceand "Fists of Fury," they're together. It's like, "I understand, and I see who you are, and I love who you are, and I love what you are even though it's not what I am. I'm also going to protect you, and you're going to protect me. We're going to work to make the world what we want it to be."

              American Boatbuilders Are the Latest Casualty in Trump's Trade War      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    The aluminum tariffs are causing boat prices to jump.

    Add boatbuilders to the list of American industries taking a beating due to Trump's new tariffs and resulting trade war. A retaliatory European Union tariff of 25 percent is drying up sales overseas, and Trump's aluminum tariffs just happen to hit the thing that small recreational boats need a lot of: aluminum.

    A typical pontoon might sell for about $30,000, but that could soon rise to as much as $37,000, according to CEO Doug Smoker. That’s largely because of the rising cost of aluminum, “the No. 1 commodity” that goes into his boats. (Five years ago, Smoker moved to all-American purchasing wherever feasible, but the company is still getting squeezed, because demand for U.S.-made aluminum surged with the tariffs, pushing prices up.)

    Nonetheless, Smoker figured the company was in decent shape — until retaliatory tariffs were imposed by Canada, where more than a quarter of his fishing boats are sold. He rushed as much inventory as he could north of the border. But since the levies went into effect July 1, sales there have “dried up.”

    Potential boat purchasers may be inured to the notion of chucking money into their new watery hobby, but still: a sudden $7,000 increase in the price of a $30,000 boat is something most purchasers are going to notice, and it's very likely that anyone who does need a recreational boat right-the-heck-now will be waiting until someone, somewhere talks some sense into Rich Orange Trade War Guy. And there are very few people in America who need a recreational boat right-the-heck-now.

    While the tariffs are impacting small and large boatbuilders alike—the Los Angeles Times notes a builder of multimillion dollar crafts is suffering as well—there is no word on how these tariffs will affect the sale of fresh new Cayman Islands flags. For that we'll have to ask someone like Trump Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, and so far she's not commenting on any of this.

              Retailers set import records ahead of planned and proposed tariffs      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    WASHINGTON (BRAIN) — A new report shows that retailers — across all categories — are stocking up on Chinese consumer goods before the possibility of increased tariffs.

    Imports at the nation's major retail container ports have set two new records this summer and are expected to set another this month, according to the monthly Global Port Tracker report released by the National Retail Federation and Hackett Associates.

    "Tariffs on most consumer products have yet to take effect but retailers appear to be getting prepared before that can happen," said Jonathan Gold, NRF's vice president for supply chain and customs policy. "We're seeing new record levels every month this summer. Much of that is to meet consumer demand as tax reform and a thriving economy drive retail sales, but part of it seems to be concern over what's to come."

    Ports covered by Global Port Tracker handled 1.85 million Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units in June, the latest month for which after-the-fact numbers are available. That was up 1.6 percent from May and up 7.8 percent year-over-year. A TEU is one 20-foot-long cargo container or its equivalent.

    July was estimated at 1.88 million TEU, up 4.4 percent year-over-year. August is forecast at 1.91 million TEU, up 4.4 percent; September at 1.82 million TEU, up 2.1 percent; October at 1.88 million, up 4.9 percent; November at 1.81 million TEU, up 2.6 percent, and December at 1.79 million TEU, up 4 percent.

    The June number set a new record for the number of containers imported during a single month, beating the previous record of 1.83 million TEU set in August 2017. The July estimate – which is subject to revision when the numbers become final – appeared to take the record higher and August should set yet another record.

    Global Port Tracker, which is produced for NRF by the consulting firm Hackett Associates, covers the ports of Los Angeles/Long Beach, Oakland, Seattle and Tacoma on the West Coast; New York/New Jersey, Port of Virginia, Charleston, Savannah, Port Everglades, Miami and Jacksonville on the East Coast, and Houston on the Gulf Coast.

    By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A mechanic helping to fight one of several major wildfires in California died in a traffic collision on Thursday, bringing the death toll from that blaze to eight, officials said. Andrew Brake, 40, was assigned to the Carr Fire burning around Redding in Northern California and died in a crash on Highway 99 in nearby Tehama County, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CalFire) said. "On behalf of all Californians, we honour Andrew and the many other brave firefighters and emergency responders who have risked their lives to protect others," California Governor Jerry Brown said in a statement.

    DUO ARISMAR DO ESPÍRITO SANTO E CAINÃ CAVALCANTE

    "Arismar e Cainã, dois artistas embarcando em uma balsa/palco, que atraca no lúdico das cidades musicais. Dia 10 de agosto Itajaí acolhe com seu píer d'artes, um santista e um cearense. O encontro de um músico de baile com um violonista de mão cheia numa esquina da vida, para prosear notas tiradas no carinho e expressar em forma de meio concerto, meio seresta de varanda. Só ávida vida busca parcerias. Onze temas compostos ao mundo das cordas. Dois amigos em afinidades, conversa de músicos, prosas sonoras e chorus livres. Perfomances públicas em saraus coletivos. Salve Itajaí! Salve Itajazz!" (Arismar do Espírito Santo)

    Arismar viaja com o Projeto “Alegria nos Dedos”, composto de Cd (Maritaca), Songbook e Oficinas de Criação Musical, onde destaca a sonoridade que pode ecoar de cada instrumento, com improvisos melódicos, combinações coloridas e simplicidade. Os temas trazem melodias que mostram a riqueza da música brasileira e sua diversidade. Cria e interpreta temas como uma forma de transporte, que proporciona, a cada audição, a ilusão de um tempo suspenso.

    CAINÃ CAVALCANTE – Fortaleza/CE

    Nascido em Fortaleza (CE) em 1990, Cainã Cavalcante é um dos grandes talentos da música instrumental brasileira. Violonista, guitarrista e compositor, afilhado do grande Patativa do Assaré, que declama em sua homenagem no primeiro registro de seu trabalho em CD, "Morador do Mato", feito aos 13 anos de idade, vem ganhando espaço na cena instrumental desde que venceu o IV Concurso Nacional de Violão “Musicalis”, em 2.000.

    Seu mais recente trabalho, o Cd “Corrente”, conta com a direção musical da instrumentista francesa Elody Bouny, um dos grandes nomes do violão erudito, e com texto de apresentação escrito pelo compositor Guinga. Um projeto audacioso que representa o primeiro registro solo do compositor cearense.

    Com o Cd “Parceria” Cainã Cavalcante e Zé Paulo Becker realizaram turnê de lançamento na Europa e Brasil, onde se apresentaram em diversos Festivais. Arismar do Espírito Santo, Mestrinho, Bebe Kramer, Gabriel Grossi, Michael Pipoquinha, Valdonys, Yamandu Costa, são alguns parceiros com quem tem dividido palco em concertos ao redor do mundo.

    Uma grande demanda de trabalhos na região Sudeste do Brasil, onde Cainã tem sido requisitado para diversos shows e gravações, trouxe o musico cearense para São Paulo, local de onde, partir de agora, ecoará sua música para o mundo.

She investigates American and African-American Studies. She founded and serves as Academic Director of John Jay's Prison-to-College Pipeline program, which offers college courses and reentry planning to incarcerated men at Otisville Correctional Facility. Dr. Dreisinger is an accomplished journalist and critic, writing about Caribbean culture, race-related issues, music and pop culture for the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Village Voice and Wall Street Journal. She helped create the documentary feature Hip-Hop Cop - which examines the New York Police Department's focus on black hip-hop artists. We'll explore her 2008 publication, Near Black: White-to-Black Passing in American Culture. She examines an array of books and films to discuss incidents of White people pretending to be or mimicking "black people." Her theory suggests that Whites see black males as the critical component of black authenticity. We'll also converse about her review of James McBride's The Good Lord Bird - McBride is a black male.

We'll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people.

Chris Harper Mercer, 26, allegedly slaughtered Umpqua Community College students in Oregon; 9 are reported dead, 10 are reported wounded. President Obama pointed out the "routine" nature of these killings. Mercer allegedly described himself as "mixed-race," but the Los Angeles Times characterized him as having White Supremacist leanings. The suspected White Supremacist leanings of GOP Majority Whip Steve Scalise are nearly forgotten; he's now positioning himself to nab House Speaker John Boehner's job. And while Whites feign rage about lax gun laws, the two year "anniversary" of Miriam I. Carey being summarily executed in the nation's capitol continues to be ignored.

Ms. Ahmed states explicitly that her decision began as a political response to White Supremacy, but evolved to where she simply does not find White Men attractive. She shares personal details of former White boyfriends, and how those relationships reminded her of the ubiquitous power dynamics of Racism - White always dominates.

We'll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people.

Significantly, black voters were widely and consistently credited with Clinton's victories over Senator Bernie Sanders. Meanwhile, Trump didn't seem to be bruised at the polls by public backing from Dr. David Duke and other overt White Supremacists. Speaking of overt Racism, this first week of March marks the 25 year anniversary of the late Rodney King being bludgeoned on camera by the Los Angeles Police Department. The Los Angeles Times asserts that the recorded mauling significantly reduced incidents of officers using batons - also known as "nigger knockers" - on California citizens. In fact, the relationship between enforcement officials and negro citizens has improved so drastically that it's hard believe an unarmed black male was shot and killed in Alabama. Adding to the shock, a White officer, Aaron Smith, has been arrested and charged with murder. His attorney, Mickey McDermott, contends that this is an example of "political correctness" run amok. And Black History Month and Melissa Harris-Perry's tenure at MSNBC ended concurrently. #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

Speaking of black athletes, Racist Suspect and documentary filmmaker Ken Burns debuted his latest project on the life and times of baseball giant Jackie Robinson. After almost a century, Whites continue issuing mea culpas for the Terrorism Robinson was subjected to - which may have killed him early. Speaking of killers, an independent investigation of the Chicago Police Department concluded that there is an institutional lack of regard for black life. Laquan McDonald and Bettie Jones are rolling over in their graves. And speaking of grieving black families, presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton is using fried okra, pork chops and the race card to compel black people to vote for her. Yes, fried okra. Mama Clinton has been especially devious in luring the anguished relatives of Sandra Bland, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner and others to bolster her tattered brand. #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

    Amy Louise Wood visits The Context of White Supremacy. An associate professor of history at Illinois State University, Wood is a U.S. cultural historian of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. We'll review her 2009 publication, Lynching and Spectacle: Witnessing Racial Violence in America, 1890-1940. This book was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award in History. Wood investigates how Whites bearing witness to the mutilation of black bodies helped solidify the White race and legitimized, sanctified the barbarism White Supremacy required. She details the significance of the 1915 masterpiece, Birth Of A Nation, lynching postcards and photographs, and the ritual scavenging of body parts by Racist spectators. We'll compare this barbaric practice to the 21st century montage of footage of enforcement officers brutalizing and slaughtering black citizens. The racial theater has extended to the presidential election, as black attendees have been harassed and assaulted continually. #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

Trump completed his first full week as commander-in-chief following a weekend of unruly protests, which resulted in a shooting at a University of Washington affair hosted by the UW College Republicans. Some black Washingtonians insist they're "glad" the first black president vacated the White House - just to end eight years of racist monkey images of Barack and Michelle Obama.

Maintaining the global theme of Whites not being reprimanded for the abuse and murder of black people, the Los Angeles Police officers who killed Ezell Ford in 2014 will not be charged. The impotent investigation lasted more than eighteen months. Hip-hop mogul Jay Z addresses the plague of police terrorism with his new documentary series on the tragic life and death of Kalief Browder. After being jailed for three years without ever being convicted of a crime, Browder committed suicide in 2015.

    If you are looking to rent a 2 BR for around $3,000, I would look at West Los Angeles, west of the 405 Freeway, and south of Santa Monica Boulevard. It's about 30-45 minutes to downtown (depending on when you leave). You will be near the best areas of the City and the beach.



    I am not sure about the public schools in that area though.



    Burbank is nice, but it will be at least 10 degrees hotter than the westside.



    Los Feliz is also nice.



    I would not live in Echo Park with kids.

    West LA/Santa Monica is not exactly kid friendly.



    Plus the parent's don't believe in modern science, and the vaccination rate is under 80% in some schools.



    South Pasadena has one of the best school districts in the state. Houses are very expensive there. Alhambra has cheaper housing, but a good school district. Both are very close to downtown.



    Note, for some strange reason Pasadena has a poor school district. Maybe because of the wealthy kids go to private schools.

He reportedly cashed out with more than $25 million in severance. Apparently, the 53% of White Women voters who supported Donald Trump were unwilling to help O'Reilly keep his job. Speaking of criminals, In California, a black male, Kori Ali Muhammad, allegedly killed three Whites as an expression of his fury about Racism. This coincidentally occurred on the same day of the debut showing of John Singleton's documentary on the 1992 Los Angeles Riots. The film depicted a number of Black Californians who voiced similar rage at White Supremacists. Other racist viewing options from the week include the premier of HBO's documentary on the medical exploitation of Henrietta Lacks, who had her genetic material stolen without her consent.

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.

Like fellow South Carolina native Dylann Roof, Slager remain behind bars for the rest of his life. While one Race Soldier may be criminally prosecuted for terrorizing with a badge, the officers who killed Alton Sterling during the summer of 2016 will not be criminally charged. There were a myriad of responses to the decision in Louisiana, including Louisiana State University's announcement that their student athletes should not wear school paraphernalia if they choose protest or publicly address the non-indictment. Days after whites mandated the recognition of the 1992 Los Angeles Riots, many across the country drew made paralells to Jordan Edwards - an unarmed 15-year-old black boy killed by enforcement officers in Texas. Like the beating of Rodney King, there's video footage of Edwards' final minutes of life. As of Friday, a murder warrant was issued for the arrest of Roy Oliver, the Race Solider who killed Edwards. On the other side of the globe, Marine Le Pen hopes to claim victory in this weekend's French presidential election. It could be the Donald Trump redux, as some Whites in France fear publicly supporting Le Pen could lead to accusations of racism. #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

Londoners remember the late Jimmy Savile, and more recent reports detail allegations that Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein may have sexually assaulted victims while overseas. Three UCLA scholar athletes were scolded as if they were child rapists for allegedly stealing sunglasses while visiting China; one of the players is the younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers' star Lonzo Ball. Since this occurred while President Donald Trump was visiting China, we'll see if this incident provoked international attention.

              Voto obrigatório: sorrir para não chorar.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Um dia precisaremos discutir com seriedade a obrigatoriedade do voto, uma aberração de apenas 21 dos 230 países do mundo. Em países onde o voto é facultativo, o político precisa antes de qualquer coisa convencer o eleitor a sair de casa para votar, o que torna o processo ainda mais democrático e representativo. Basta de currais eleitorais. Segue texto de Ana Paula do Vôlei sobre o tema, via Estadão:


    Passada a Copa, a corrida eleitoral começou de verdade. Treino é treino, jogo é jogo, mas como no clássico de Antonio Candeia, imortalizado por Cartola, o brasileiro está tão perdido que parece cantarolar “deixe-me ir, preciso andar, vou por aí a procurar, rir pra não chorar”. Com a devida vênia aos futurólogos, a eleição de 2018 é a menos previsível das últimas décadas. A velha polarização PT-PSDB é coisa do passado (ainda bem!), mas o futuro, só Deus sabe.

    Por mais questionáveis que sejam as pesquisas, sem contar a volatilidade do humor do brasileiro com os políticos, temos um quadro que desafia qualquer palpite. Em quase todas as eleições presidenciais após 1989, o líder das pesquisas um ano antes do pleito colocou a faixa verde e amarela no peito. Como o “preferido” de um terço dos eleitores, segundo alguns institutos de pesquisa, está vendo o sol nascer quadrado em Curitiba, e outro terço se declarando indeciso, como fazer uma previsão minimamente confiável? Impossível.

    O ex-presidente, atual presidiário, apontou seu dedo para Fernando Haddad, o poste eleito por ele em 2012 para a prefeitura de São Paulo que perdeu a reeleição já no primeiro turno para João Dória, um outsider da política que sequer era unanimidade no próprio partido - uma derrota avassaladora e humilhante em praticamente todas as zonas eleitorais da capital. A malfadada gestão Haddad é lembrada obrigatoriamente todos os dias pelos paulistanos por conta das horrendas ciclovias que cortam a cidade até hoje. Com Lula preso e indicando um candidato pouco popular para o Planalto, com sua sucessora deposta por impeachment, este será o maior teste para sua capacidade de transferência de votos até hoje.

    Em segundo lugar, o grande azarão desta eleição: o indeciso. Sem o inquilino VIP da carceragem da Polícia Federal na disputa, um em cada três brasileiros pesquisados diz não ter idéia para quem vai entregar o mais alto cargo público do país daqui a dois meses. Mesmo com a inclusão do nome de Fernando Haddad no lugar de Lula, o terço indeciso continua lá. E estamos falando de resultados da pesquisa estimulada, aquela em que uma cartela com os nomes dos candidatos é apresentada ao eleitor. A situação, na verdade, é ainda mais preocupante.

    Na pesquisa espontânea, aquela em que o eleitor deve revelar sua preferência livremente, sem consultar uma lista pronta de candidatos, a quantidade de indecisos sobe para quase metade do eleitorado. Quando somamos os que dizem votar branco ou nulo, temos algo como 70% do total. É possível, considerando o resultado das últimas pesquisas espontâneas divulgadas, que até dois terços dos brasileiros ou não sabem em quem vão votar ou simplesmente não participarão da escolha.

    O quadro não muda muito nas simulações de segundo turno. Sem considerar Lula, que está evidentemente inelegível e sua inclusão nas pesquisas serve mais a uma agenda política específica do que ao país, a quantidade de eleitores indecisos supera a soma de todos que revelaram preferência por algum candidato. A eleição está realmente começando agora, mas os resultados finais continuam tão imprevisíveis quanto possível. E isso não é bom.

    Pelo “centrão”, Geraldo Alckmin tenta viabilizar seu nome ainda impopular com um discurso dissimulado e um conjunto de apoios que reúne parte da velha política que tanto sonhamos nos livrar. Álvaro Dias corre por fora como um nome alternativo para o bloco que reúne o maior número de políticos, tempo de TV e máquinas partidárias locais, mas nenhum acordo político funciona sem combinar com o eleitor que, até agora, não mostrou querer embarcar na canoa alquimista.

    A grande novidade desta eleição é, sem dúvida, Jair Bolsonaro. Conseguirá o deputado unir os brasileiros que foram às ruas pedir o impeachment de Dilma ou falará apenas para sua base eleitoral já consolidada e terminará com uma votação não tão expressiva e sem apoios fora do próprio nicho político? Na primeira eleição presidencial após as garras certeiras e imperdoáveis da Lava Jato, difícil prever.

    Seja qual for o resultado, um dia precisaremos discutir com seriedade a obrigatoriedade do voto, uma aberração de apenas 21 dos 230 países do mundo, segundo um relatório recente da CIA. Em países onde o voto é facultativo, o político precisa antes de qualquer coisa convencer o eleitor a sair de casa para votar, o que torna o processo ainda mais democrático e representativo. Com o voto facultativo, os currais eleitorais e os votos “de máquina” serão evidentemente esvaziados, dando oportunidade para que políticos mais representativos emerjam do lamaçal que vemos hoje.

    Na noite da eleição presidencial americana de 2012, que reelegeu Barack Obama, eu estava num hospital de Los Angeles devido a um acidente do meu filho no treino de vôlei e que resultou num pequeno corte. Enquanto assistíamos a contagem de votos pela TV, o enfermeiro que dava pontos no queixo do futuro atleta nos contava que, embora tivesse votado em Obama em 2008, não havia votado na eleição que acompanhávamos ao vivo porque não se sentia devidamente informado e engajado. Ele reconhecia que, devido aos intermináveis plantões no hospital, havia acompanhado pouco a campanha e que, por isso, seu voto seria pouco informado e um desserviço à democracia americana. Esta maturidade só se conquista com mais liberdade e não menos, só quando o Estado é mínimo e não interfere na capacidade individual de questionar a própria aptidão, ou simples desejo, para votar.

    O voto obrigatório pode ter a plasticidade da verdadeira democracia, mas não deixa de ser um poderoso alimento aos nossos algozes e à máquina corrupta que hoje infelizmente conduz as engrenagens do nosso país. Assim como lutamos pelo direito de votar, deveríamos também lutar pelo direito de não sermos obrigados a votar. O valor da multa para quem não vota pode parecer irrisório (R$3,51), mas eleitores que não foram às urnas em 2016 devem nada mais que R$ 98 milhões à Justiça Eleitoral, montante que vai diretamente para o Fundo Partidário. O inacreditável fundo que distribui recursos às siglas mensalmente, ainda que composto de outros recursos, tem a estimativa de receber R$ 780 milhões em 2018. O “direito” de não querer votar continua alimentando a máquina dos lobos.

    Deixo algumas perguntas para um futuro debate: será que com o voto facultativo teríamos um número tão grande de indecisos em toda eleição? Será que nossos candidatos estão sempre verdadeiramente engajados com nossos anseios, necessidades e as mudanças que pedimos há décadas? Como se comportariam se a cada eleição a tarefa de cada um deles fosse nos tirar de casa e lutar, literalmente, para ter o nosso voto?

    Mesmo morando fora do Brasil já há alguns anos, continuo tão interessada no futuro do país como sempre e no dia 7 de outubro estarei depositando meu voto na urna daqui mesmo, só assim temos a chance de mudar o país e nossas mazelas políticas. Enquanto isso, como diria Cartola, vamos sorrir pra não chorar.

    Don't forget that Little Tokyo's Nisei Week starts this weekend. Really, lasting more than seven days is the 78th Nisei Week, bringing a big summer celebration with a host of activities downtown. That means outdoor booths, food, music, games and more.

    The biggest event is of course the Grand Parade taking over Little Tokyo this Sunday, Aug 12, at 4pm and lasting hours. The streets are filled with parade-goers featuring local politicians, clubs and groups from downtown. It a fun sight to see.

    As it"ll be warm we say bring fold-able lawn chairs and something to block the sun with plenty of ice cold drinks.

    Short Cuts meets Love, Actually ... in Dog Days , an ensemble rom-com-o-rama that brings Los Angeles dog owners together under the reasonable thesis that dogs make everyone's lives better. In fact, the film itself exhibits a dog-like sensibility: Simple, shaggy, ingratiating, lovable, and totally disinterested in aesthetics, like a St. Bernard's lick across the face. It's upsetting how much this ungainly animal gets away with, but Dog Days turns earnestness into a primary virtue, beating back the clichés and paper-thin characters that swarm the film like a cloud of fleas. Suffice to say, the title of the 2005 Diane Lane-John Cusack rom-com Must Love Dogs is a proper warning label for this one. Directed by Ken Marino, who himself has turned puppy-dog earnestness into a career of playing hilarious dopes, Dog Days benefits from a cast of old friends and called-in favors from actors of past Marino projects like The State , Childrens Hospital , Reno 911! , and Party Down .

              Why Trump Should Scale Back Auto Mileage Regulations      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Authored by Gary Galles via The Mises Institute,

    The Trump administration EPA and Department of Transportation have announced their intent to change the Corporate Average Fuel Economy standard from what was decreed by their Obama administration predecessors. They were scheduled to reach 54.5 mpg in 2025. The new target will be 37 mpg.

    The rationale being given the most attention is that reducing the CAFÉ standards would reduce automobile deaths. However, that is being panned by left-leaning critics.

    For instance, Los Angeles Times columnist Michael Hiltzik characterized the plan as “dirtier cars are safer, so lets keep them dirty.”

    Two days later, former Clinton and Obama administration member David J. Hayes was featured on the oped page (8/6/18) with a criticism titled, “Gas guzzlers won’t make us safer.”

    However, while these (and similar) critical articles deride the possibility that reducing fuel economy standards from the much higher levels they would have been bumped to could increase automobile deaths (Hiltzik described it as “fatuousness” and Hayes termed it “baloney”), they not only misrepresent the arguments rather than examine them, they fail to consider the actual evidence for that “fatuous baloney.”

    Consider the title, “Gas guzzlers won’t make us safer.” Not only is the conclusion asserted rather than demonstrated, but what gas guzzlers (a term Hitzlik also uses) is it referring to? Cars that averaged 37 mpg would be by far the cleanest vehicle fleet in American history. And the air is far cleaner than it was, meaning that the additional benefits from each further improvement is far less than in the past, undermining the argument for sharply more stringent standards.

    Further, the logic such critics dismiss out of hand is hardly new or preposterous. It goes back to a famous 1989 Harvard-Brookings study that found that CAFÉ caused a 14–27% jump in traffic deaths due to the resulting car downsizing. An update for 1996 found that 2,700–4,700 automobile deaths, of 22,000 total, were attributable to such downsizing.

    The arguments made in such studies are far from preposterous, either. When the higher costs of downsizing make newer cars more expensive relative to older, less safe cars, people buy fewer new cars, and increase the risks borne by such drivers and passengers. And if far better mileage lowers the cost of driving additional miles, the law of demand implies such people will drive more, other things equal. It is a matter of how large such effects are, demanding empirical research, not just a hand-wave of dismissal.

    Both these writers echo the EPA’s January 2017 Final Determination, that the 54.5 mpg standard to be phased in “will have no adverse impact on automobile safety.” However, that contradicts the July 2016 Draft Technical Assessment Report finding that “mass reduction continues to be an important technology option … in meeting future … standards,” and the admission that there is a “relationship between vehicle mass and safety.” In fact, in 1992, a federal appeals court held that “the 27.5 mpg standard kills people,” but that the EPA had broken the law, using “fudged analysis,” “statistical sleight of hand,” and “bureaucratic mumbo-jumbo” to keep from admitting demonstrated increases in safety risks.

    It is also important to consider evidence from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), whose research is intended to more accurately determine risks for companies with billions of dollars at stake, not justify a political agenda. Their April 2018, post on “Vehicle size and weight” focuses on the fact that “the bigger the crush zone … the lower the forces on the occupants,” in explaining the role of vehicle size and that, in a collision, “the bigger vehicle will push the lighter one backward during the impact. As a result, there will be less force on the occupants of the heavier vehicle and more on the people in the lighter vehicle,” to explain the effect of weight (bigger vehicles are similarly safer in single-vehicle crashes). In summary, “All other things equal, occupants in a bigger, heavier vehicle are better protected than those in a smaller, lighter vehicle.” Supportive evidence includes that in 2016, 1–3 year old very large cars had 22 deaths per million registrations, but minicars had 62. Small cars also made up a vastly disproportionate share of high driver death rate vehicles for the 2011–2014 model years. Perhaps most dramatic, however, was a study comparing hybrid models with their conventional counterparts. The occupant-injury rate for the hybrids, which weighed substantially more (10% in the study), was one-quarter lower.

    Those who would roll back CAFÉ standards from an eventual 54.5 mpg to 37 have a much better case, while their opponents offer much more bombast. But there is a further question that should be asked, but can get lost in the politics — why do we need CAFÉ standards at all?

    Nobody knows better than those who buy and fuel their vehicles with their own money what kind of vehicles are most appropriate for the circumstances they face. In particular, I see no evidence that politicians and bureaucrats know us better or care about us more than we do. Why can’t we be allowed to make our own choices in the face of the tradeoffs between mileage, carrying capacity, safety, etc.? And as must always be asked about such nanny state intrusions into our liberty, if we are deemed incapable to make such automobile choices with our own money (much of which is sucked off by government as proof of how much they care), how can we be capable of intelligently determining who our political representatives should be?

    Allie Rowbottom main image

    black and white photo of Jell-O Girls author Allie Rowbottom staring directly at the camera

    Jell-O Girls author Allie Rowbottom (Photo credit: Willy Busfield)

    Allie Rowbottom was holed up in a cabin in Montana several years ago when she started writing Jell-O Girls: A Family History, which was released on July 24, but she didn’t know at the time how a project with “so many seemingly disparate narrative threads” would come together. “I wanted to tell the story of the impact of our cultural push toward domesticity (and later, women’s push away from it), because the cultural imperative to dictate where and how women should fit in a society shapes every single American life,” she says via email the week after the book’s release.

    A few years later, when her mother got sick for the final time, the New England–raised, Los Angeles–based writer found a solid scaffolding for the book and began “to connect [these seemingly disparate ideas] for readers.” But it wasn’t easy. “I did waver at times,” she says. Eventually, though, she found her way, using a cultural history of the kitchen, and Jell-O’s place within it, as her throughline. “The kitchen especially can be seen as a historical nexus, in this case, for the history of American feminism.” This is an especially poignant topic for the 32-year-old Rowbottom, whose great-great-great grand uncle bought the patent for Jell-O in 1899 for $450 and sold it 26 years later for $67 million.

    Jell-O Girls is at once a memoir, a family history, and an overview of the domestication (and dissolution) of the American kitchen. The narrative covers three generations of women—beginning with Rowbottom’s grandmother, Midge; then focusing mainly on Rowbottom’s late mother, Mary; and later, zooming in on Rowbottom herself—as they battle the gendered cultural expectations placed on their minds and bodies. They’re ordinary American women whose lives were altered by the unwitting inheritance generated from America’s classic dessert and the “curse” that seems to accompany it.

    Mary’s presence in Jell-O Girls is an anchor around which much of the other stories are centered. It was at Mary’s urging, and with her help, that Rowbottom wrote the book. And it is Mary’s obsessions that drive the course of much of the action and direction as the narrative progresses. She’s obsessed with ferreting out the family “curse;” she, along with Rowbottom, is fascinated by a 2012 news story out of Leroy, New York, (where Mary grew up and Jell-O long had its plant) in which a group of teenage girls is overcome with alternating fits of frozenness and convulsions. Mary, who came of age in the second-wave feminist era, applies its tenets easily to her own life, unabashedly calling the curse patriarchy and embracing an essentialism that Rowbottom veers away from.

    “I feel like essentialism comes from a lack of roundness in how a topic is considered,” Rowbottom says. “It’s myopia, or simplicity, and I think the issues and ideas that fill Jell-O Girls are too complicated to reduce to any tidy argument or conclusion. But I also think there’s room for a little essentialism to be, not arrived at, but considered. I say this because, coming from an academic setting, I noticed how often people would say, ‘That’s essentialist!’ as a way of shutting down a conversation, rather than exploring what essentialism means to the topic at hand.” This nuanced way of thinking is one of the things that makes Jell-O Girls such a powerful book.

    The “curse,” essentialist or not, provides a fascinating framework. But for Rowbottom, the curse is more than just patriarchy:

    “I’d agree that it’s patriarchy and, more specifically, the patriarchal imperative to keep women silent, separate from ourselves and each other. I also think the curse is trauma [that is] tied in many cases to patriarchy, but also is its own thing. I look back on my mom’s life, I look forward in my own and think about what could be changed if trauma, and the crushing shame it carries with it, could be spoken, dispelled. The publication of this book is bringing that up for me. There’s a voice inside that whispers I’ve done something wrong in telling this story, even as I know it is the truest, most important thing I’ve ever done.”

    While these women’s story of extreme financial privilege is unique, Rowbottom makes a convincing case that their story is universal, at least among American women over the last century. For Rowbottom, the curse extends far beyond her family, and is directly linked to the scrutiny and control that society has long asserted over the female body.

    Jell-O Girls covers a lot of ground: It’s both personal and political, subjective and objective, historical and deeply interested in the present moment. It bridges seemingly disjointed topics, such as Jell-O and the shuttering of the country’s first chartered women’s university and Jell-O and witchcraft. In the book, Rowbottom writes: “The history of witchcraft, like the history of the domestic-science movement and the Jell-O it loved, is a history of women’s work and women’s relationships.” Remarkably, Jell-O Girls never feels haphazard. Instead, the book feels like a well-told examination of the history of the American kitchen, and alongside it, America’s vision of the role women should play.

    “Personally, the idea of where and how women should fit, behave, speak (or not speak) has so shaped my life, and my understanding of my mother and grandmother’s lives before me,” Rowbottom explains. “I have immense privileges, fought for by my feminist foremothers and tied to my race and class and still, I feel pressures every day that are unmistakably gendered and related to how I’m supposed to perform womanhood.” This intimate connection to her material becomes starkly clear when Rowbottom enters young adulthood. Mary attempts to curb the ill-effects of patriarchy on her young daughter’s life; “‘That’s the voice of patriarchy,’ she’d tell me, ‘and it’s our job to tell him to shut the fuck up,’” Rowbottom relays in the book, referencing her battles with an “invisible meanness” perched behind her ears.

    It sounds cliché, but so long as women are consumed with reaching those unattainable ideals, or competing with each other; or so long as we are overwhelmed and unsupported, juggling motherhood, money, racism, classism and feminized poverty; so long as we’re conditioned to believe that by speaking our trauma, our truth, we’re doing something wrong, we’re not able to unite against the forces that have oppressed us

    But despite her mother’s best efforts, Rowbottom struggles with an eating disorder during her high school and early undergraduate years. She religiously counted calories, establishing a handful of “safe foods,” including sugar-free Jell-O, but later, with her mother’s help, she enters a treatment center and confronts the underlying causes of her disorder. Rowbottom’s Jell-O–eating years stand out, mostly because they feel like a rejection of her mother, a peculiarly personal affront to a woman who spent most of her life disengaging from the brand.

    When asked about this, Rowbottom clarifies: “At the time, I was dedicated to divesting myself of anything connected to my mom. I had to shut off our connection to stay disordered. I wouldn’t acknowledge the connection that food had to my mother’s life. I needed to see all food as stripped of its metaphoric meaning. Of course in making it the center of my life, I was imbuing it with tremendous power, though I couldn’t see that yet.”

    Does she ever eat Jell-O now? “I don’t…. I really try to stay away from artificial anything,” she says. “But for my book launch party, I made several decorative molds which, at the end of the night, as we cleaned up, my husband and I started drunkenly forking into our mouths. It quickly became gross.”

    Jell-O may be her birthright, but by unflinchingly exploring the crystal-hued dessert’s place at the American table, Rowbottom exposes yet another facet of this many-sided narrative: the role that capitalism plays in defining the feminine ideal. While she’s never overt about it, the pernicious influence of capitalism lurks in each Jell-O ad and old recipe she details (especially when ads began focusing on “controlling” the shape of the female figure). The domestic-science movement, which gained popularity following the Industrial Revolution, aimed to “simplify housekeeping, nourish families, and eradicate germs and sickness entirely;” it also demanded a strict perfection of women’s bodies and behaviors. Jell-O was in many ways the perfect conduit for the movement’s impossible ideals of femininity.

    As Rowbottom writes, “Salads [often encased in Jell-O] were enmeshed with nature, which was in turn enmeshed with femininity…. Light and decorative, clean and delicate—these were the attributes a salad, and a lady, should possess.” She goes on to detail the long-standing (and ugly) influence of this notion on the female body and appetite. While cultural expectations may have shifted over the decades, something Rowbottom chronicles with expert precision, the problem of patriarchy and capitalism’s control of women’s minds and bodies remains.

    Why? “Power,” Rowbottom explains. “It sounds cliché, but so long as women are consumed with reaching those unattainable ideals, or competing with each other; or so long as we are overwhelmed and unsupported, juggling motherhood, money, racism, classism and feminized poverty; so long as we’re conditioned to believe that by speaking our trauma, our truth, we’re doing something wrong, we’re not able to unite against the forces that have oppressed us.” In life, as in her writing, Rowbottom’s insights are brutally honest, and she never shies away from what must be witnessed. Has the family curse been exorcised by writing Jell-O Girls? Rowbottom doesn’t know. She says, “I’ve heard from other women, some even connected to Jell-O in similar ways to me, that have felt really moved by the book, and this feels like some triumph over the curse.”

    Rowbottom’s next book takes her far outside the kitchen, though she will continue to explore ideas about “perfection and how it breeds disorder.” While her next book is also a memoir/cultural-commentary hybrid, she’ll be focusing on “the archetype of the ‘horse girl’ and my childhood and adolescence as a competitive horseback rider.” Is it tough to keep the lens so sharply focused on her life? She admits, “After this, I think I’d like to try my hand at fiction.”

              Inside the culture of sexism at Riot Games      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Riot Games, founded in 2006, has become one of the biggest companies in gaming on the back of its sole release, League of Legends, which had 100 million monthly players in 2016. With 2,500 employees across 20 offices, Riot is a powerhouse. In 2013, Riot was named one of Business Insider's 25 best tech companies to work for. Two years later, it made $1.6 billion in revenue. Its Los Angeles campus is cushy in the way you'd expect a money-bloated tech company's offices to be. It's got a gym, a coffee shop, a cafeteria with free food, a LAN cafe. Employees often stay late to grind out competitive skill points in League of Legends with their Riot family and are communicating on Slack well into the night. Women who don't fit in with Riot's "bro culture"- a term I heard from over a half dozen sources while reporting this story - say these amenities help make the job bearable for only so long. Over the course of several months, Kotaku has spoken to 28 current and former Riot employees, many of whom came forward with stories that echo Lacy's. Some of those employees spoke on the record; most spoke anonymously because they feared for their future careers in the games industry or they were concerned that League of Legends' passionate fanbase would retaliate against them for speaking out. Many of those sources painted a picture of Riot as a place where women are treated unfairly, where the company's culture puts female employees at a disadvantage. Other current employees, speaking on the record, disputed that account, with some top female employees telling Kotaku they had not personally experienced gender discrimination at Riot.

    A very detailed and well-researched article, with ample room for both sides of the story. It covers the experiences of both women and men with regards to harrassing behaviour, but also relays the experiences of people who never felt any sense of harrasment, while also allowing senior leadership and the company itself to properly respond to the claims made.

    To go along with this story, there's the experiences written down by former Riot employee Meagen Marie, which are quite chilling. This retelling is obviously of a lot more personal nature, but it does seem to align with Riot having a deeply sexist culture.

    1960's horror is a genre chocked full of heavy hitters: Psycho, Night of the Living Dead and Rosemary's Baby to name a few. So it's no surprise that the less famous films, and those with lower ratings, might get dismissed as having little to offer. In defense of William Conrad's 1965 horror Two on a Guillotine, a great cast, great location and masterful suspense add up to show that there's a lot to like about this film.

              THE MURDER OF MARY MEYER      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    On a chilly October 12, 1964 Monday morning, Mary Pinchot Meyer, a high-society socialite, (and also discovered paramour of the late assassinated President John F. Kennedy) became an assassination victim herself during her customary early morning walk to her art studio.

    Author Peter Janney knew the Meyer family personally, as Janney’s father, Wistar Janney, was a career CIA operative and close friends with CIA chieftains Richard Helms, James Angleton, and Cord Meyer (Mary’s husband).  

    “There was nothing pretty or easy about waking up early one morning in 2006 and finally realizing that my own father---Wistar Janney, a career high-level CIA officer---had been involved in the ‘termination’ of Mary Pinchot Meyer, someone I had grown to love and care about,” says Peter Janney.  “Yet there is another horror in the death of Mary Meyer, a horror that reaches far beyond the personal.  It is the intimate and undeniable connection between her murder and that of her lover, President John F. Kennedy, on November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas.”

    MISSING LINKS

    Janney begins an excursion through the arrest and trial of a young twenty-five-year-old Raymond Crump, Jr., the accused murderer of Mary Meyer.  Under the skillful counsel of defense attorney Dovey Roundtree, Crump’s attorney was able to disintegrate the accusations and charges brought against her client.  Despite prosecution’s determined “declaration of war” on Ray Crump, Roundtree meticulously dodged and rebuffed the prosecution’s manipulations of justice.  On Friday, July 30, 1965, the jury found Raymond Crump, Jr., not guilty of the murder of Mary Pinchot Meyer.  Yet, Roundtree had discovered a deeper mystery in the forensic history.

    Janney explains: “Dovey Roundtree never abandoned her belief that Ray had been a scapegoat, a ‘patsy,’ who had been set up to take the fall. ‘So far as I am concerned,’ wrote Roundtree in 2009, ‘there is in the complex and tangled web of certain truth and unconfirmed rumor, of the inference and speculation and intrigue that surrounds the life and death of Mary Pinchot Meyer a single critical fact: Raymond Crump’s innocence in her murder.’”

    Joseph W. Shimon floated in the highest of government circles.  He was a special White House Aide, Washington Police Inspector, liaison to the CIA, U.S Attorney’s office, U.S Secret Service, the Mob, and an official assassin:

    “People are eliminated,” said Shimon to his daughter in the spring of 1965.  “Honey, you don’t know how many people are just eliminated, just on the operating table alone.  They just need to be disposed of.   And don’t ever believe what you read in the newspapers. It’s all made up…among my many jobs, I used to kill people.  The government hired me to kill people. It’s a job…you have to, if that’s what you’re told to do.”  (Shimon, interviewed by Peter Janney, February 15, 2007.)   


    Roundtree further pondered the mysterious phone calls she received, the disappearance of a stalled Nash Rambler and an accompanying “repair order,” as well as the mention of “Mary’s diary having been sequestered by the CIA all these years,” linking Mary’s affair with the assassinated president.   

    “Who, then, was the man that Henry Wiggins had seen standing over Mary’s corpse less than fifteen seconds after the fatal second shot was fired?” asks Janney.  “His pristine, unstained clothes appeared to match the clothes worn by Ray Crump that morning.”

    NEW LEVEL OF UNDERSTANDING

    Janney says that achieving a “new level of understanding in the case” would include a look at “a number of heretofore unseen details, events, experiences, and people.”  (p. 144.)

    Author Peter Janney

    “Another author, Leo Damore, met with Janney in 1992 while working on his own Meyer project.  Damore had written a bestseller about Senator Edward Kennedy and Chappaquiddick, and he was hot on the trail of Meyer’s killer, or so he confided to Janney.  Damore never finished his book, however.  In 1995 he committed suicide.  Years later, Janney bought Damore’s research files, using them as the basis for ‘Mary’s Mosaic.’

    “James H. Smith, a Falmouth lawyer, was among those encouraging Janney to keep digging.  Smith worked for the Kennedy family years ago and knew Damore well. Now 82, he never believed the Warren Commission’s version of JFK’s murder, says Smith today, and finds nothing outlandish in Janney’s the-CIA-did-it scenario.

    ‘I think Peter’s hit a home run,’ Smith said.’”

    https://www.bostonglobe.com/2012/05/25/janney/St45JbWsY5VXTVbPKzAG7M/story.html.

     

    Mary had several suitors before her death.  One such admirer was Robert (“Bob”) L. Schwartz who was a young naval officer and a journalist who came to know Mary as a very idealistic woman and a pacifist, but ultimately called her “a prima ballerina assoluta.”  “She was what women were meant to be,” said Schwartz.

    Cord Meyer, “a charismatic war veteran,” Yale graduate, congressman, dated and eventually married Mary Pinchot.  Cord decided to work for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the Directorate of Plans in 1951, “the CIA’s most secretarial division dedicated to the manipulation of world order.”

    Janney says:  “Somewhere in the bowels of the Washington E Street offices of the newly formed CIA, Cord Meyer transformed all his poetic, insightful visionary wisdom into perfecting schemes and strategies for America’s greater power and control, the often subtle but effective attempts at world domination---no matter what the cost.”

    Mary felt a disdain for the CIA and its “mission.”  Janney quotes an anonymous source:  “Mary absolutely detested Allen Dulles and everything he stood for.  She compared him to Machiavelli, only worse.”  (p. 184.)

    Cord and Mary grew apart, possibly due to Cord’s alcoholism, possibly due to Cord’s obsessive life in the CIA, but also due to Mary’s affair with (in his appearance only) “Italian noble” Jean Pierre.  The Meyers were divorced.  Shortly following these events, Michael Pinchot Meyer (the son) was hit and killed by an automobile driver.  During these sordid circumstances, Cord  became director of the CIA’s black project: Operation Mockingbird.

    “Having infiltrated more than twenty-five newspapers and wire agencies, Operation Mockingbird had successfully manipulated the American media to promote the CIA viewpoint…an estimated three thousand salaried and contract CIA employees were engaged in propaganda efforts.”

    October 12, 1964 - Mary Pinchot Meyer is murdered in broad daylight on the C & O Canal towpath in Georgetown, three weeks after the release of the Warren Report.

    The CIA did not take kindly to an expose’ of their media control operation in Ramparts Magazine.  “CIA operative Edgar Applewhite was ordered to operate a campaign to smear the publication and then tender it financially bankrupt,” says Janney.  (p. 192.) 

    Further CIA conquests included the CIA surveillance of Alfred McCoy’s The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia.  The book revealed that American intelligence had collaborated with the drug trade dating back as far as World War II.  CIA involvement extended about the globe resulting in the “death squads” in Central America (p. 195).  Janney talks about a “CIA-led assassination campaign throughout Southeast Asia, Operation Phoenix, (which) made matters even worse.”

    THE LSD PARLANCE

    http://i.ytimg.com/vi/E1GySrriCpg/hqdefault.jpg.

    Mary’s friends Anne and Jim Truitt began an interest in psychedelic states of consciousness and, according to Jim Truitt, Mary first experimented with psychedelics in 1958, but Janney says a legendary Alfred M. Hubbard (a former World War II OSS agents, uranium entrepreneur) “first introduced her to such exploration.”  Dr. Oscar Janiger, a Los Angeles Psychiatrist, was also a member to Hubbard’s visits.  Hubbard was very distrustful of the CIA’s exploration of LSD.  “The CIA work stinks,” said Hubbard, “they were misusing it…when they were killing people, you couldn’t tell them a goddamn thing.”

    Janney says:  “In addition to the CIA, the U.S Army, and Britain’s M16 all had a keen interest in using LSD and other hallucinogens for chemical warfare, in what they hoped would be ‘mind control.’”  In one incident, in 1951, the CIA’s Fort Detrick, Maryland had used a crop-duster airplane to cover the town of Pont-Saint-Esprit in Southern France with an aerosol of LSD.  “Four people committed suicide before the trauma subsided.”

    Frank Olson, a CIA chemical warfare expert, became, in the eyes of his peers, a “security risk” and was supposedly thrown out of his tenth-floor hotel window.  It was in his world of high-society intrigue, that Mary’s drug interest expanded.

    It was suspected that Mary visited Timothy Leary, the LSD guru, during the early 1960s.  That interest would become entwined with her friendship with Jack Kennedy. 

    JACK KENNEDY AND MARY MEYER     

    Mary became Friends with her neighbor Jack Kennedy starting somewhere about 1957.  Over a number of years, that friendship turned into a closer attraction.

    “Mary’s primary attraction for Jack may have ultimately been trust---in the end,” says Janney, “love’s most powerful aphrodisiac."

    Richard Helms: The man who kept the JFK secrets

    Mary contacted Doctor Timothy Leary about his research and connection to the Harvard Psilocybin Project.  “Leary depicted Mary Meyer,” says Janney, “as a kind of missionary for the ascension of world peace through the sagacious use of hallucinogens…an opportune mind-altering experience in the lives of powerful political figures, specifically the leader of the free world…”

    Leary’s harassment by the government and his eventual arrest and imprisonment only temporarily stifled his investigation of the murder of his Friend, Mary Meyer.   

    “Upon his release from prison in 1976, having read the National Enquirer expose’ about Mary’s affair with Jack published earlier that year, Leary would attempt a second investigation of Mary’s murder,” says Janney, “after coming across a copy of Deborah Davis’ book Katharine the Great  at the home of his friends Jon and Carolyn Bradshaw.”

    EVOLVING TRAJECTORY  

    According to Janney, the Meyer-Kennedy affair began around January, 1962 and perhaps earlier. Both Meyer and the Kennedys, Jack and Bobby, had a growing distrust of Allen Dulles and his increasing exploits, including the Cuban Bay of Pigs, Operation Northwoods, and other nefarious CIA shenanigans.

    “Mary’s longtime commitment to world peace, coupled with Jack’s broadening insight that peace, not armed conflict,” says Janney, “was the right path forward, inevitably made an important asset. After the Cuban Missile Crisis, the President’s evolving political trajectory would increasingly isolate him from his own National Security Apparatus.” 

    During the Cuban missile crisis, both the U.S military and the CIA, says Janney, were secretly operating unilaterally doing whatever they could to intensify tensions that could ignite a war.

    “But in the shadows, evil was very much alive, stalking not only the republic but the president,” says Janney.  “Not only were the Joint Chiefs of Staff enraged that Cuba had been attacked, but were also indignant that Kennedy had made concessions to Khrushchev.”    

    Author and researcher Leo Damor told Janney about a confidential source who revealed that Mary and Jack Kennedy had taken “a mild LSD trip” in the summer of 1959. Following this episode, Kennedy pushed for a Nuclear Arms Treaty.

    SECURITY OF THE SLAVE 

    Mary Meyer and Jack Kennedy’s new found philosophy of world peace could be seen in his address at American University, dubbed his “peace speech”:  “Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war.  Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave.  I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, that kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children---not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women – not merely peace in our time but peace for all time.”

    THE OSWALD SYNCHRONISM  

    An assassination attempt on Jack Kennedy was planned for November 2, 1963.  The plot would entail multiple gunmen, and a designated patsy, ex-marine Thomas Arthur Vallee.  Like Oswald, Thomas Vallee had also served at a U-2 base in Japan under the Joint Technical Advisory Group (JTAG), the CIA’s code name for its U-2 spy plane surveillance unit.  Like Lee Harvey Oswald, Vallee “found work” in the fall of November, 1963 in a building next to a L-shaped turn on  the route of the Presidential motorcade.  The plot, however, was foiled.

    TAOS, N.M. (Reuters) - Two men charged in the abuse of 11 youths found malnourished at a ramshackle compound in New Mexico were training the children with firearms to commit school shootings, prosecutors said in court documents filed in the case on Wednesday.

    One of the suspects, identified as Huraj Wahhaj, is the father of a young boy whose disappearance from his home near Atlanta months ago prompted the investigation that led authorities to raid the compound, located north of Taos, New Mexico, last week.

    Remains believed to be that of the boy, who was 3 years old when his mother reported him missing, were found at the property on Monday but have not yet been positively identified, authorities said.

    Wahhaj, a second man accused of harboring him as a fugitive, Lucas Morton, and three women presumed to be the mothers of the 11 children, who were taken into protective custody from the compound, were each charged with 11 counts of felony child abuse.

    The five defendants made their initial court appearance before a local magistrate on Wednesday. They were due to be arraigned later in the day.

    Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe told reporters on Tuesday that investigators found a shooting range built at one end of the squalid compound, located on the outskirts of the community of Amalia in northern New Mexico, near the Colorado border.

    Wahhaj, 39, whose first name is alternately presented in some court documents as Siraj and is the person described as being “in control” of the compound, was heavily armed when taken into custody, the sheriff said.

    A foster parent of one of the 11 children told authorities that Wahhaj “had trained the child in the use of an assault rifle in preparation for future school shootings,” prosecutors alleged in an expedited motion for pretrial detention.

    The document further stated that Wahhaj was “under investigation for the death” of a 12th child at the compound, as well as for “training of children with weapons in furtherance of a conspiracy to commit school shootings.”

    The court filing also states he “transported children across state lines for the purpose of children receiving advanced weapons training to commit future acts of violence.”

    Similar allegations were leveled in a motion prosecutors filed seeking expedited pretrial detention of Morton.

    The court documents said that most of the defendants appeared to be from Georgia, New York or elsewhere from the U.S. East Coast.

    No mention was made of ideology or motive in initial court filings. The sheriff in comments over the weekend referred to the suspects as “extremists of Muslim belief,” but he declined to elaborate on that characterization when asked about it by reporters at a news conference on Tuesday.

    According to CNN, Wahhaj is himself the son of a prominent Muslim cleric in New York.


    The FBI is also taking part in the investigation, the sheriff said. So far, no federal charges are known to have been brought in the case.

              An Airline Scans Your Face. You Take Off. But Few Rules Govern Where Your Data Goes.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

    By Catie Edmondson
    Aug. 6, 2018



    WASHINGTON — The program makes boarding an international flight a breeze: Passengers step up to the gate, get their photo taken and proceed onto the plane. There is no paper ticket or airline app. Thanks to facial recognition technology, their face becomes their boarding pass.

    “I would find it superconvenient if I could use my face at the gate,” said Jonathan Frankle, an artificial intelligence researcher at M.I.T. studying facial recognition technology. But “the concern is, what else could that data be used for?”

    The problem confronting Mr. Frankle, as well as thousands of travelers, is that few companies participating in the program, called the Traveler Verification Service, give explicit guarantees that passengers’ facial recognition data will be protected.

    And even though the program is run by the Department of Homeland Security, federal officials say they have placed no limits on how participating companies — mostly airlines but also cruise lines — can use that data or store it, opening up travelers’ most personal information to potential misuse and abuse such as being sold or used to track passengers’ whereabouts.

    The data the airlines collect is used to verify the identity of passengers leaving the country, an attempt by the department to better track foreigners who overstay their visas. After passengers’ faces are scanned at the gate, the scan is sent to Customs and Border Protection and linked with other personally identifying data, such as date of birth and passport and flight information.

    For its part, Customs and Border Protection has said it will retain facial scans of American citizens for no longer than 14 days. But the agency has said it cannot control how the companies use the data because they “are not collecting photographs on C.B.P.’s behalf.”


    John Wagner, the deputy executive assistant commissioner for the agency’s Office of Field Operations, said he believed that commercial carriers had “no interest in keeping or retaining” the biometric data they collect, and the airlines have said they are not doing so. But if they did, he said, “that would really be up to them.”

    But, Mr. Wagner added, “there are still some discussions to be had,” and federal officials are considering whether they should write in protections.

    Privacy advocates have criticized the agency for allowing airlines to act as unregulated arbiters of the data.

    “C.B.P. is a federal agency. It has a responsibility to protect Americans’ data, and by encouraging airlines to collect this data, instead they are essentially abdicating their own responsibility,” said Jennifer Lynch, a senior staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a digital rights nonprofit.

    Harrison Rudolph, an associate at Georgetown Law’s Center on Privacy and Technology, voiced similar concerns in a report he helped write in December evaluating the agency’s use of facial scans.

    “Are there privacy protections in the contracts that D.H.S. has reached with the airlines?” Mr. Rudolph said in an interview. “Do they require the disposal of any data collected? Do they require audits? Are there use limitations to ensure that travelers’ photos aren’t used in ways they don’t expect? Without any enforceable rules, it’s too easy for D.H.S. to break those promises.”

    Mr. Wagner, however, defended the program and said it “builds upon the processes that have taken place for many years.”

    “Airlines are already collecting a lot of information from a traveler and providing that to C.B.P.: the reservation data, the manifest,” he said.

    But biometric data, including scans of passengers’ faces and fingerprints, is among the most sensitive, according to privacy experts, because unlike other means of identification such as a Social Security number, it cannot be changed.

    The face is a particularly sensitive identifier because “if someone has a camera, they can identify you by your face,” Mr. Frankle said. “You can be recognized even if you have no idea you’re being recognized.”

    The program, which currently operates through four major airlines in international airports in Los Angeles, Detroit, Orlando and Atlanta, is not mandatory for passengers. But the airlines — Delta, Lufthansa, British Airways and JetBlue — have reported that a majority of passengers participate.

    It comes as facial recognition technology has become both more widespread and more closely scrutinized.

    Companies such as Apple and Citibank have leveraged the technology, and still more — including casinos, music festival organizers and retailers like Walmart — have used it to track customers and shoplifters.

    Amazon has recently drawn condemnation for providing facial recognition software to law enforcement agencies, whose use of the technology has caused privacy and civil liberties groups to voice concerns about overzealous surveillance.

    Questions about the technology’s accuracy have also arisen. According to the Georgetown report, federal data shows that the system used by Customs and Border Protection incorrectly rejects as many as one in 25 travelers using valid credentials. It also cited studies that showed that facial recognition algorithms fail more frequently in correctly identifying women and people of color. The department said it does not track how many people using forged credentials manage to get through the system.

    A privacy report by Customs and Border Protection published in June 2017 when the program began said federal officials would conduct a privacy evaluation within one year to ensure that airlines were complying with “required privacy protections.” An agency spokeswoman, Jennifer Gabris, said last month that the evaluation had not been completed because the program had not achieved “interim operating capability.”

    Ms. Gabris did not respond to inquiries asking what privacy protections are required of participating companies; representatives for participating airlines also declined to respond to similar inquiries.

    The companies have since been left to come up with their own policies that contain varying degrees of privacy assurances. In statements, the airlines stressed that the program was being tested in limited trials.

    But while they provide passengers with generalized privacy policies, only one, JetBlue, specifically outlines how it will protect customers’ biometric data, an update made after inquiries from The New York Times.

    Further complicating the situation is the fact that the companies share passengers’ data with the technology vendors they have contracted to create the infrastructure that collects the information and sends it to federal officials. Those vendors — Vision-Box, SITA and NEC Corporation — each have their own privacy policies with differing levels of accessibility.

    “This is not something that is hard to get right if your hands are clean, which only invites suspicion if you don’t get it right,” Mr. Frankle said. “This isn’t a place where you’re innocent until proven guilty. We should be skeptical until they assure us they’re not going to use this data for anything other than convenience in ways that are legally binding.”

    Some airlines like JetBlue have already expressed interest in using facial recognition technology to customize passengers’ experiences, such as allowing gate agents to recognize customers and even one day determining travelers’ mood.

    Despite the privacy concerns, the Traveler Verification Service shows signs of expanding.

    As part of a package devised to secure the nation’s borders, President Trump signed an executive order last year telling federal officials to speed up completion of a larger biometric entry-exit system that encompasses the program. And Congress authorized $1 billion in 2016 toward the measure.

    The airlines say they hope to introduce the program within the next year to at least another half-dozen airports, and federal officials updated privacy documents last month to allow for cruise lines to participate in the program.

    Two senators, Edward J. Markey, Democrat of Massachusetts, and Mike Lee, Republican of Utah, have urged the Department of Homeland Security to stop the expansion of the larger effort until their privacy concerns are addressed.

    In a letter sent to the agency in December, the senators said that the system “appears not to have the proper safeguards to prevent the spread of this data to third parties or other government agencies.”

    [USA] Aug 09 (ANI): Hollywood singer Demi Lovato's Latin American tours were cancelled, as she recently checked in for rehabilitation.

    According to TMZ, the singer was set to perform from September 20 to 22 in Mexico. She was also scheduled to perform in a six-city tour across Chile, Argentina, and Brazil in November.

    Beginning this Friday, her fans will receive the refunds for the cancelled shows.

    This comes at a time after she left Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where she was undergoing treatment for a drug overdose.

    In July, the 25-year-old singer was rushed to the hospital after she was found unconscious at her home in Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles.

    Speaking about her fatal overdose, the 'Sorry Not Sorry' singer earlier this month took to her Instagram account and thanked her fans, family, friends, and the Hospital staff for being with her all along.

    The singer, who is well known for her struggle with drugs for years, recently gave fans a sneak peek into her life when she talked about her struggles with addiction in the documentary- 'Simply Complicated'.

    She even opened up about her addiction to drugs in her single 'Sober', which was released in June. (ANI)

Then he leaves Los Angeles to take the Coast Starlight train along the California coast to Portland, Oregon. Then he leaves Portland on the Empire Builder to return to Chicago.

    Thus in the above video you see another version of the trip depicted in another video shared here. A British tourist travels from Portland to Chicago on the Empire Builder and most of the sound track are contemporary music and it sounded great. Of course, this one is more of a documentary with "YouTuuba" doing a lot of talking with regards to what we're seeing in his videos.

    I'm aching for a trip to the pacific northwest at least though I know it'll probably be a lot like what's going on in LA. Portland and Seattle has been in the news for a burgeoning homeless population. I remember being in Skid Row in LA in 2016 and it wasn't entirely pleasant. Don't know what I brought that up, I just recognize that Portland and Seattle are nice places to visit but not without their issues. There probably isn't a place on this planet that doesn't have their local issues.

    Duration of the above vid is just about 4 hours. A long one but to see various streetscapes and landscapes, it's worth it

              Remembering TMP Cinematographer, Richard H. Kline, 1926-2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    StarTrek.com is saddened to report the passing of Oscar-nominated cinematographer Richard H. Kline, who passed away on Tuesday, August 7, at the age of 91, in Los Angeles. Kline's many credits included Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and he earned his Oscar nominations for Camelot and the 1976 version of King Kong.

    Camera set-up for The Motion Picture

    Born and raised in Los Angeles, Kline served in the Navy from 1944 to 1946, then started his career as an assistant cameraman at Columbia Pictures just a month after his discharge. He worked on numerous films and television shows as assistant camera operator or camera operator before making the leap to director of photography, and working on such projects as Mr. Novak, Chamber of Horrors, The Andromeda Strain (with future TMP director Robert Wise), Hang 'Em High, Soylent Green, Battle for the Planet of the Apes, The Fury, Body Heat, All of Me, Howard the Duck and Double Impact.

    “I had the pleasure to spend time with Dick when we were working on the Star Trek: The Motion Picture -- The Director's Edition." Daren Dochterman told StarTrek.com. "Going over the color timing on the film with him and Robert Wise was an amazing experience, and I learned so much. He was happy to lend his eye to making that look as good as possible."

    "Richard was simply a photographic genius," Michael Matessino, restoration supervisor for the TMP -- The Director's Edition, told StarTrek.com.

    Short Cuts meets Love, Actually ... in Dog Days , an ensemble rom-com-o-rama that brings Los Angeles dog owners together under the reasonable thesis that dogs make everyone's lives better. In fact, the film itself exhibits a dog-like sensibility: Simple, shaggy, ingratiating, lovable, and totally disinterested in aesthetics, like a St. Bernard's lick across the face. It's upsetting how much this ungainly animal gets away with, but Dog Days turns earnestness into a primary virtue, beating back the clichés and paper-thin characters that swarm the film like a cloud of fleas. Suffice to say, the title of the 2005 Diane Lane-John Cusack rom-com Must Love Dogs is a proper warning label for this one. Directed by Ken Marino, who himself has turned puppy-dog earnestness into a career of playing hilarious dopes, Dog Days benefits from a cast of old friends and called-in favors from actors of past Marino projects like The State , Childrens Hospital , Reno 911! , and Party Down .

    "The demand that research funding be declined because of its origin poses a grave threat to academic freedom," wrote Daniele Struppa, the president of Chapman University, a private school about 90 minutes south of Los Angeles, earlier this year in The Wall Street Journal. "I am being asked to turn down donations from the dreaded Koch brothers, even when...the proposal for funding was inspired, developed and fully fleshed out by my faculty, in the most important exercise of their own academic freedom." In the culture wars playing out on the nation’s campuses, Chapman University, a private university about 90 minutes south of Los Angeles, is one of the hottest combat zones. The university received $15 million to help fund The Smith Institute, which seeks to bring the study of economics and of the humanities together in a way that benefits both sides. The Smith Institute is named both for Adam Smith, widely considered the father of economics, and Vernon Smith, the 2002 winner of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics. Because some of the money to fund The Smith Institute came from the Charles Koch Foundation, some students and faculty are protesting the Institute and demanding that the university return the gift. Across the country, groups called “UnKoch MyCampus” are pushing for schools to return any money from libertarian philanthropists Charles and David Koch, arguing that the money comes with ideological strings. (Disclosures: Reason Foundation, the nonprofit that publishes this podcast, receives money from the Koch foundation and David Koch has been on our board of trustees for over 25 years.) But do funders actually dictate university research and teaching? Or is this simply an attempt to quash ideological diversity? And in an age when the humanities—the study of history, literature, art, philosophy, and more—are rapidly declining at universities, what are the best ways to revive interest in the very activities that make us, well, human? Those are some of the questions Nick Gillespie put to Daniele Struppa in a conversation recorded at FreedomFest, the annual libertarian gathering held each July in Las Vegas).

    Looking back at the 1992 Los Angeles riots, people often remember tensions between African-Americans, white law enforcement officers and Korean small business owners. That story gets even more complicated when you step into Pico-Union — a neighborhood that was, and still is, predominantly Latino. In the wake of the Rodney King verdict, riots broke out around the city. The first day, they erupted in South Central; by the second, they had spread north to Pico-Union. And while people all over the city had to deal with looting, fires, and general chaos, many residents of Pico Union had to deal with an additional fear — the threat of deportation. Mike Hernandez was the neighborhood's city councilman in 1992. He said that in the 25 years since the riots, Pico-Union hasn't changed that much. The area is still more than 80 percent Latino, with lots of immigrant families from Mexico and Central America. And, in 1992, a majority of Pico-Union constituents were living below the poverty line in

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aseQlmKg25U About 40 years ago, when she was 24, Consuelo Hermosillo had an emergency caesarean section at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. In the new documentary No Más Bebés , she recalls asking her doctor what type of birth control she should use going forward. "He goes, 'You don't need anything. We cut your tubes,'" Hermosillo says in the film. "And I said, 'Why?' And he said, 'Well you signed for it.' And I said, 'Me?'" No Más Bebés (No More Babies) , which airs on PBS on Feb. 1, tells the story of how 10 immigrant Mexican women, Hermosillo included, sued LA County doctors, the state and the U.S. government in 1975 for allegedly violating their civil rights. The women's cases were similar. Each had an emergency cesarean section and each said she was either unaware that she signed for a tubal ligation or was told by a medical professional that not signing for one could mean death for her and her unborn child.

    Only a small number of Boy Scouts make Eagle Scout. The feat is even harder when you come from inner-city poverty. Yet for 27 years, Romy Vasquez has successfully encouraged boys from South Central Los Angeles to become Scouts, and he has seen more than a dozen members of Troop 780 go on to reach scouting's highest rank. His pitch: You want to be in a gang? Scouting is the biggest gang in the world. "It's global," he tells the Scouts. "We got some in Japan, China, Israel, all over. So guess what? You belong to BSA!" Despite the controversy over its ban on gay volunteers, the Boy Scouts of America is one of the largest youth organizations in the country, with about a million members. That means a lot of young minds being shaped by teachers who go by a different title: scoutmaster. Romualdo Vasquez Peña III is the leader of Troop 780.

    Short Cuts meets Love, Actually ... in Dog Days, an ensemble rom-com-o-rama that brings Los Angeles dog owners together under the reasonable thesis that dogs make everyone's lives better. In fact, the film itself exhibits a dog-like sensibility: Simple, shaggy, ingratiating, lovable, and totally disinterested in aesthetics, like a St. Bernard's lick across the face. It's upsetting how much this ungainly animal gets away with, but Dog Days turns earnestness into a primary virtue, beating back the clichés and paper-thin characters that swarm the film like a cloud of fleas. Suffice to say, the title of the 2005 Diane Lane-John Cusack rom-com Must Love Dogs is a proper warning label for this one.

    Directed by Ken Marino, who himself has turned puppy-dog earnestness into a career of playing hilarious dopes, Dog Days benefits from a cast of old friends and called-in favors from actors of past Marino projects like The State, Childrens Hospital, Reno 911!, and Party Down. His film misses the energy and comic anarchy of those titles, but it's spackled with cameos and offhand bits of improvisation that help alleviate the graceless construction and stylistic indifference of his West Coast roundelay. Mostly, he fills the screen with cute pups and lonelyhearts, and banks on reactions shots to carry it over. That's not the worst strategy when magnificent beasts like a pug, with its inquisitive two-o'-clock head tilt, are doing the reacting.

    The interconnected storylines need a third-act fundraiser to finally knit together, leaving most of Dog Days to cut arrhythmically from one to the other. Nina Dobrev stars as a local morning show anchorwoman whose initial tension with her new co-host (Tone Bell), a former NFL-star-turned-Michael-Strahan-style broadcaster, is eased by their dogs' affection for each other. Vanessa Hudgens plays a barista with eyes for a handsome, narcissistic veterinarian (Michael Cassidy) who works across the street, but she strikes up a friendship with the nerdy guy (Jon Bass) who runs a struggling dog shelter.

    Dogs are an accidental blessing for others. Eva Longoria and Rob Corddry play new parents who have trouble bonding with their adoptive daughter until a stray pug breaks the ice. Meanwhile, the owner of that stray pug, a cranky widower (Ron Cephas Jones) in a large house, turns to a pizza boy (Finn Wolfhard) to help him find it. Adam Pally is a screw-up guitarist who readjusts his rock-star lifestyle to accommodate a rambunctious dog while his sister (Jessica St. Clair) and brother-in-law (Thomas Lennon) manage newborn twins. From the disorder of taking care of a pet comes a new sense of purpose.

    In the six degrees of separation game between these characters, some are distant satellites that pass only briefly at the climax and others are coyly established, like Pally and Hudgens occupying an apartment building with a strict no-dogs-allowed policy. Mostly, Dog Days allows the mini-stories to develop separately, which makes all of them seem undernourished individually and disconnected from each other on the whole. At worst, it can feel like four or five disposable films smooshed haphazardly together, and Marino's lackadaisical direction doesn't help. (It was shot in L.A. yet features a couple of glaringly obvious back-projected vistas that make it seem like Peoria was standing in.)

    Whenever Dog Days lags, Marino's connections to the weird-comedy world help resuscitate it with random, minor flickers of inspiration. Tig Notaro affects an withering deadpan as highly-paid dog therapist who bilks Dobrev's neurotic out of $300 a session, David Wain turns up as a clown who briefly deconstructs certain assumptions about what clowns do, and Marino himself is very funny as a slickster who steps in as a replacement co-anchor. There's a better, more eccentric version of Dog Days that convention limits to the fringes.

    Yet convention does yield its own fruit eventually, when the world of the film finally converges and the dog- and human-love can be expressed without reservation. Will-they-or-won't-they romantic couplings turn to will they, excitable tail-wagging canines are reunited with their owners, and suddenly the world is a harmonious city park where the right animals are matched up forever. At that, the film contentedly curls up in a ball and falls asleep at your feet.

    From today's SF Chronicle:

    Beneath the art-bedecked terrazzo floor of San Francisco’s Salesforce Transit Center is an enormous concrete box waiting to be filled. It’s an end point for bullet trains that may someday zip in from Los Angeles, and commuter Caltrain locomotives chugging up the Peninsula to the South of Market district. But when the center opens Sunday, that concourse will remain empty. It will likely stay that way for years.

    There is no firm timeline or funding source for the long-promised train service. While transportation officials seek to build momentum for this next phase, San Francisco City Hall is touting a new approach that could raise the cost to $6 billion from an already expensive $4 billion. 

    That’s caused some politicians and transit enthusiasts to worry, even as they remain adamant that the rail extension will happen. Because it must happen, said state Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco. “Every major transformational transit project ever has been more expensive than we thought, had taken more time than we thought,” Wiener said. “We’ll find a way.”

    Rob's comment:
    The "new approach" mentioned above is a tunnel from Mission Bay to to the Transbay Terminal at a cost of $6 billion! 

    Scott Wiener is a fantasist on tunnels under the city---and has a sketchy relationship with reality---and, like other members of the Democratic Party, about the high-speed rail project that will never be built, let alone get to the Transbay Terminal:

    There’s also uncertainty about what comes next — including when, or if, commuter trains and high-speed rail will reach the transit center. The current timetable calls for high-speed rail service between the Central Valley and San Francisco to debut in 2029. There’s a $4 billion budget estimate to add 1.3 miles of underground tracks from Mission Bay up Second Street into a concrete shell that now sits empty beneath the facility.

    Regardless of how many billions the tunnel from Mission Bay to the Transbay Terminal will cost, the high-speed rail project also has to tunnel 13.5 miles under the Pacheco Pass to even get to Northern California from the Central Valley, not to mention the 36 miles of tunnels under the San Gabriel and Tehachapi Mountains required to reach LA!

    Supporters of the high-speed rail project have always been fuzzy about the "funding source" for the project. Just the interest on the $9.95 billion in bonds authorized by state voters in 2008 will be $647 million a year for 30 years! 

    Those payments will be coming out of the state's general fund. What will Governor Newsom do when the overdue recession hits the US and California? Will he cut vital services for the state's people or put an end to this dumb project? Since public support for the project is already shaky, Newsom's answer to that question should be obvious.

    Roger Rudick and the anti-car Streetsblog support the dumb project, since trains aren't cars, which makes them almost as good as bicycles. Rudick wouldn't have been hired as editor of SF Streetsblog if he opposed the project.

    The SF Chronicle continues to support the project by avoiding a close look at the cost issue. The Transbay Terminal

    ...will be the downtown hub for bus commuters from the East Bay---and if all goes according to plan, for train commuters from all over the state. That's a big if, though. Without the substantial foot traffic that Gov. Jerry Brown's promised high-speed rail project would bring to the transit center, its success isn't guaranteed. Unfortunately, high-speed rail currently faces entrenched opposition, escalating costs and an uncertain future. With Brown leaving the governor's office soon, high-speed rail looks further away than ever. But the transit center is too big a project to be abandoned to the political whims of high-speed rail's naysayers and NIMBYs...

    That's as close as the Chronicle ever gets to a serious analysis of the project.

    Le cycle promotionnel de All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell, le deuxième album de PVRIS, est officiellement terminé. Le trio donnera un dernier concert pour une oeuvre de charité pour les personnes en guérison de leurs addictions le 29 septembre prochain à Rhode Island. Dans une récente entrevue avec Billboard, la chanteuse Lynn Gunn parle du troisième album du groupe et quelques uns de ses propos, traduits par nos soins, sont à lire après le saut.

    A propos de nouvelles musiques :

    J'y pense toujours ! En fait, j'ai eu une session hier avec une nouvelle personne avec qui j'essaye de collaborer en tant que producteur, et ça s'est très bien passé, nous avons passé un bon moment. Les premières étapes ont commencé.

    L’hiver dernier, j’ai beaucoup écrit à Los Angeles, rencontré de nouvelles personnes avec qui faire équipe et voir avec qui ça vibrait et avec qui ça ne le faisait pas, et nous avons commencé tout ça assez tôt. Donc tout le mois d'août, je serai juste là, à New York, à travailler et à essayer de purger toutes sortes d'idées et de m'inspirer.

    La chanteuse pourrait même inclure du saxophone et du cor dans ses morceaux:

    Je jouais du saxophone et du cor d'harmonies. Peut-être pas sur ce disque, mais ce serait vraiment cool d'inclure du cor. J'aimerais beaucoup faire ça."

    En attendant plus d'informations (et ce nouvel opus en 2019 si tout va bien), on se remet le single "My House" qui vient tout juste de dépasser les 10 millions de vues sur YouTube !

Canadians Irene Sankoff and David Hein have forged a moving, thoroughly entertaining tribute to international amity and the indomitable human spirit."

    Come From Away began performances on Broadway on February 18, 2017 and officially opened to critical acclaim on March 12, 2017 at Broadway's Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (236 West 45th Street) and continues to play to standing-room-only audiences.
