          Summer is a time for Jewish unity and saving Jewish lives By Karna Feinstein-Cohen      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
http://washingtonjewishweek.com/47645/summer-is-a-time-for-jewish-unity-and-savi Working for Jewish unity should have been an imperative for Jews the world over this summer. All summer long Islamic terrorists in Gaza have been sending incendiary kites in order to set fire to Israeli farmland and forests. The terrorists have also been launching barrages of missiles aimed at Israeli civilian neighborhoods. One firebomb balloon landed in the yard of a kindergarten in the southern Israeli moshav of Tkuma. All of this while the Jewish people were in the midst of the very season when we mourn the destruction of the Holy Temple. To make matters worse, there were reports of Jews in the United States and in Britain seemingly showing more concern for our adversaries than our fellow Jews. News headlines about Kaddish being recited for Hamas terrorists, Birthright participants being led off of tours to learn about “the occupation,” and Jewish summer camp counselors conspiring to teach their campers the Palestinian narrative seemed all too frequent this summer. That is why the news that a Magen David Adom ambulance was donated by a coalition of synagogues in suburban Philadelphia was especially encouraging and heartwarming to hear just before Tisha B’Av. Unfortunately, at this time, Israelis need to know that Red Magen David Adom ambulances must be depended upon once again to save the lives of Jews. The Talmud Bavli in Sanhedrin 37a states: “Anyone who saves the life of one of the children of Israel, the verse ascribes him credit as if he saved an entire world.”

Windows in Hanna's bedroom

In the summer of 1929, artsy sisters Gertrude and Hanna Monaghan followed a herd of cows up Main Street Nantucket on a whim. The cows turned at Howard Street and disappeared into a 140-year-old barn. The sisters fell in love with the barn and turned it into an art studio and summer home that is both jarringly out of place on Nantucket and perfectly at home with the island’s emotional ethos.

Nantucket in the 1920s was not the glamorous resort destination it is today. Fisherman shacks dotted the shoreline, and most residents relied on traditional New England patterns of subsistence. There were some summer visitors, but they were not the wealthy and beautiful people presently associated with “summering” on Nantucket.

Enter two Quaker sisters from Philadelphia: Gertrude and Hanna Monaghan. Gertrude was a muralist who studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Hanna was an actress and author. They were both eclectic individuals with indulgent parents. They were drawn to Nantucket thanks to the burgeoning art colony on the island. East coast artists were drawn to the ramshackle fisherman cottages that had lost their primary function as the whaling industry declined and Nantucket harbor silted over in the late nineteenth century.

The Monaghan sisters were soaking in the art scene when they happened upon the herd of cows in 1929. They persuaded the owner of the livestock barn—town grocer William Holland—into selling it to them. They named it Greater Light—after Genesis 1:16, “God made the two great lights: the greater light to have dominion over the day and the lesser light to have dominion over the night"—and they set to work immediately, renovating the barn into an airy home perfect for contemplative creating and dramatic entertaining. That winter, they drew up plans and created a three-dimensional model of the renovations they had in mind.

What makes the house all the more remarkable is the amazing salvaged architectural elements they shipped to Nantucket to complete their dream project. Hanna had salvaged twelve-foot high wrought-iron gates in a Pennsylvania junkyard the previous spring, and they fit perfectly on the new patio they envisioned for Greater Light. The sisters fitted four church windows together, painted red, to create one giant window perfect for letting in natural light in the great room. They also salvaged yellow glass bottle windows from a Philadelphia pub and installed them in Hanna’s bedroom.

These architectural elements, as well as a gorgeous garden and unique pieces of furniture, tell the story of two strong-willed and talented women. The home is also a testament to the broader story of Nantucket in the early 20th century, when whaling was a thing of the past but resort-era Nantucket was in no way a foregone conclusion.

Today, Greater Light is one of the many historic sites operated by the Nantucket Historical Association. In recent years, the historical association mounts seasonal gallery-style exhibitions in the main room. Additionally, two of the first floor rooms are curated to represent their appearance while the Monaghan sisters lived in the home.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Koerner Hall Announces 10th Anniversary Concert Season Opening Festival      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Koerner Hall opened on September 25, 2009, Glenn Gould's birthday, with a Grand Opening Festival that featured 10 concerts. For the 10th anniversary season Mervon Mehta, Executive Director of Performing Arts at The Conservatory, has planned an opening festival (as well as a closing festival in April and May of 2019) that will consist of seven concerts.

"These extraordinary concerts affirm Koerner Hall as the venue of choice for internationally celebrated performers. Its landmark 10th anniversary season will further strengthen the position of The Royal Conservatory as a leading concert presenter and global cultural hub, which has brought together more than a million Canadians through the unifying power of music," says Dr. Peter Simon, Michael and Sonja Koerner President & CEO of The Royal Conservatory of Music.

Mervon Mehta said: "The 10th anniversary season will be a celebration featuring some of Koerner Hall's favourite artists from the first nine seasons alongside some new faces. The finest musicians in classical music, jazz, world, roots, and folk have made Koerner Hall their Toronto home and helped us establish our global reputation. We have invited many of them back this season and left room for a few legends that, finally, will make their Koerner Hall debuts."

The 10th anniversary opening festival opens with three free concerts as part of the Bloor St. Culture Corridor hub of Culture Days:

Gábor Takács-Nagy conducts the Royal Conservatory Orchestra

On September 28, Hungarian violinist, conductor, and founder of the legendary Takács String Quartet, Gábor Takács-Nagy, returns to conduct the RCO and violinist Orin Laursen in a program of Mozart's Overture to La clemenza di Tito, K. 621; Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D Major, op. 35; and Dvo?ák's Symphony No. 8 in G Major, op. 88. The concert will be preceded by a Prelude Recital at 6:45pm and Pre-concert Talk at 7:15pm.

Koerner Hall 10th Anniversary Free for All

The wildly popular Koerner Hall Free for All is back! On September 29, The Royal Conservatory offers this opportunity for anyone who ever dreamed of performing on the Koerner Hall stage to do just that - for five minutes - and the schedule is always packed. Aspiring and professional performers are once again encouraged to bring their best solo piece - or an entire band - to sing a song, recite a poem, or even dance, and to invite their friends and family to experience their five minutes of glory. Acoustic performances will take place from 12noon to 3pm and amplified performances from 5pm to 8pm. Limited performance spots are available and deadline to apply to perform is Friday, August 24. Interested performers can apply and learn more at www.rcmusic.com/events-and-performances/koerner-hall-free-all.

Fern Lindzon

"Fern Lindzon is an engaging pianist and singer who brings an unassuming authority, an inquiring spirit and a natural grace to contemporary jazz." (Mark Miller, jazz journalist) On September 30, the jazz vocalist and pianist who has been described as "smart and smouldering" and "sublimely elegant" by !earshot, returns to Mazzoleni Concert Hall as part of the free Sunday Interludes series.

Koerner Hall 10th Anniversary Gala: Kathleen Battle

Kathleen Battle's soaring voice has carried her to the heights of the classical music world. The range of the five-time Grammy Award winner's repertoire spans three centuries from the Baroque era to contemporary works, which she performs with symphony orchestras and in recital halls around the world. Perhaps what distinguishes this luminous soprano most is her almost magical ability to create an unwavering bond with audiences through a voice that is "... without qualification, one of the very few most beautiful in the world" (The Washington Post). In her Koerner Hall debut on October 2, Ms. Battle will perform opera arias, selections from Broadway, as well as spirituals.

Proceeds from the evening support Resounding! The Campaign for The Royal Conservatory.

The Academy of St Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble

Formed by Sir Neville Marriner in 1958 from a group of leading London musicians, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble is one of the world's best, renowned for fresh, brilliant interpretations of the world's greatest classical music. In their return visit to Koerner Hall on October 3, they perform Carl Nielsen's Serenata in vano, FS 680; Jean Françaix's Octet; and Beethoven's Septet in E flat Major, op. 20.

"Their sound is sweet and pure, their ensemble work airtight." (The Washington Post) The concert will be preceded by a Pre-concert Talk at 7pm.

The Jerry Cans and New North Collective

The Jerry Cans create music inspired by their hometown of Iqaluit, Nunavut, and life in the Canadian Arctic. With their unique mix of traditional Inuit throat singing and roots-rock sung in the Indigenous language of Inuktitut, The Jerry Cans offer a distinctly northern sound and infectious, high-energy performances. The New North Collective is an ensemble of northern Canadian performing artists from Yukon and Northwest Territories whose music is diverse and skillful, representative of a multitude of genres, including jazz, folk, new music, spoken word, and rock. While exploring and pushing musical boundaries, there is a common goal to discard the stereotypes of the region and the people who live in rural and remote northern communities. The two bands from northern Canada share the stage on October 4.

          New study shows ‘alt-right’ views linked to infrequent church attendance and divorce      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Washington D.C., Aug 9, 2018 / 03:30 pm (CNA).- Newly released data shows that those Americans who only occasionally go to Church services are more likely to hold so-called “alt-right” views, compared to those who regularly attend or never go at all.

The Demography of the Alt-Right, a demographic analysis released Aug. 9, breaks down the cultural, social, and economic factors which seem to overlap with a tendency toward white nationalism and “alt-right political views.”

The analysis identified three key attitudes which it says are held by people affiliated with racist and alt-right groups. It then examined what circumstances and characteristics people holding these views tend to have in common. The traits with the highest incidence among those with racist views were found to be infrequent Church attendance, divorce, low income, unemployment, and identification as a political independent - all of which were present in about 18 percent of “alt-right” respondents.

The identifying “alt-right” attitudes used by Hawley, an assistant professor of political science at the University of Alabama, were a strong sense of “white identity,” a belief in the importance of “white solidarity,” and a sense of “white victimization.”

Hawley gathered data from the 2016 American National Election Survey. Among survey respondents, 28 percent expressed strong feelings of white identity; about 38 percent expressed strong feelings of white solidarity; and about 27 percent felt that whites suffer a meaningful amount of discrimination in American life. A much smaller minority, about 12 percent of respondents, expressed all three opinions.

Of the 12 percent who had all three attitude markers of the “alt-right,” 18.03 percent attended religious services “once or twice a month.” 10.86 percent of those with those attitude markers said they “never attended” services, and 12.28 percent said they attend weekly. 

Hawley noted that the leadership of far-right radical groups “appears to be less religious and socially conservative than earlier far right movements - though parts of the white nationalist movement have always expressed antipathy toward Christianity and other organized religions.”

He also said that while traditional religious beliefs and activities are often associated with “reactionary views” on social issues, “most major religious groups in the United States promote an explicitly egalitarian worldview that stresses the equal dignity of all persons, and all are officially anti-racist.”

There was, he concluded, “not always a clear pattern when it came to frequency of worship and racial attitudes.”

The 12 percent of respondents with alt-right views were also more likely to be divorced than either to be married or have never married at all – 18.24 percent, compared to 10.37 percent who are married and 11.24 who have never been married.

While considering theories that the breakdown of traditional family structures and values had contributed to the rise of far-right identity politics, Hawley said that there was no “compelling evidence that the breakdown of traditional family norms is leading to a new interest in right-wing radicalism.”

“However,” Hawley noted, “the results for divorce are more interesting. On every one of these questions mentioned earlier, for example, divorced respondents were consistently one of the highest scoring groups. This may seem curious, as there is not an obvious connection between being divorced and feelings about race. It is possible that the experience of divorce makes one feel more alienated and negative in general.”

The analysis was presented by the Institute of Family Studies. Its release comes only days before a Unite the Right rally will be held in Washington, D.C., on August 11-12.

The rally will mark the first anniversary of the of the 2017 Unite the Right demonstration in Charlottesville, Va., during which white supremacists marched through the streets, displayed Nazi flags, and shouted racist slogans. Clashes with counter protestors resulted in more than 30 people being injured, and a woman was killed when one man linked to white-supremacist groups rammed his car into a crowd of counter-demonstrators.

In response to last year’s events, Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia said in 2017 that “Charlottesville matters,” calling it a “snapshot of our public unraveling into real hatreds brutally expressed.” He lamented the rise of far-right and racist attitudes and the “collapse of restraint and mutual respect now taking place across the country.”

The National Park Service has confirmed that a permit has been issued to Unite the Right organizer John Kessler to demonstrate outside of the White House on Sunday night. That rally is expected to draw an estimated 400 people. Meanwhile, several permits have also been issued to counter-protesters at different locations around Washington. Some estimates suggest that several thousand people could arrive to protest what is expected to be an overtly racist and provocative display.

In November 2017, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington D.C., issued the the first pastoral letter on race by a senior American bishop in almost thirty years. Entitled “The Challenge of Racism Today,” the letter denounced racism “in whatever form” as “ultimately a denial of human dignity.” 

CNA obtained a statement Wuerl plans to issue in advance of Sunday’s rally, in which the cardinal will remind Washington-area Catholics that “in the face of groups whose message we deplore and even as they exercise their First Amendment right, we must stand firm in our convictions.  We cannot let these messages that we reject somehow change us. Rather, we must continue to stand up for a good and just society, speaking the truth in love.”

          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?"

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)

          Immigration Judges Accuse Sessions of Interfering.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Federal immigration judges filed a formal grievance Wednesday against Atty. General Jeff Sessions and the Department of Justice, saying they want to stop federal law enforcement officials from interfering with their autonomy. The complaint from the National Assn. of Immigration Judges comes after Sessions removed Judge Steven Morley from a high-profile immigration case in July and replaced him with another judge who ordered the immigrant at the center of the proceedings swiftly deported. The Justice Department has since removed more than 80 cases from Morley, who sits in Philadelphia, through other administrative reassignments or appeal procedures, according to their complaint. "He is very, very disturbed over this," Ashley Tabaddor, president of the association, said of Morley, calling the case reassignments the latest example of the Trump administration undermining the independence of immigration judges to advance its political priorities.

          New study shows ‘alt-right’ views linked to infrequent church attendance and divorce      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Washington D.C., Aug 9, 2018 / 03:30 pm (CNA).- Newly released data shows that those Americans who only occasionally go to Church services are more likely to hold so-called “alt-right” views, compared to those who regularly attend or never go at all.

The Demography of the Alt-Right, a demographic analysis released Aug. 9, breaks down the cultural, social, and economic factors which seem to overlap with a tendency toward white nationalism and “alt-right political views.”

The analysis identified three key attitudes which it says are held by people affiliated with racist and alt-right groups. It then examined what circumstances and characteristics people holding these views tend to have in common. The traits with the highest incidence among those with racist views were found to be infrequent Church attendance, divorce, low income, unemployment, and identification as a political independent - all of which were present in about 18 percent of “alt-right” respondents.

The identifying “alt-right” attitudes used by Hawley, an assistant professor of political science at the University of Alabama, were a strong sense of “white identity,” a belief in the importance of “white solidarity,” and a sense of “white victimization.”

Hawley gathered data from the 2016 American National Election Survey. Among survey respondents, 28 percent expressed strong feelings of white identity; about 38 percent expressed strong feelings of white solidarity; and about 27 percent felt that whites suffer a meaningful amount of discrimination in American life. A much smaller minority, about 12 percent of respondents, expressed all three opinions.

Of the 12 percent who had all three attitude markers of the “alt-right,” 18.03 percent attended religious services “once or twice a month.” 10.86 percent of those with those attitude markers said they “never attended” services, and 12.28 percent said they attend weekly. 

Hawley noted that the leadership of far-right radical groups “appears to be less religious and socially conservative than earlier far right movements - though parts of the white nationalist movement have always expressed antipathy toward Christianity and other organized religions.”

He also said that while traditional religious beliefs and activities are often associated with “reactionary views” on social issues, “most major religious groups in the United States promote an explicitly egalitarian worldview that stresses the equal dignity of all persons, and all are officially anti-racist.”

There was, he concluded, “not always a clear pattern when it came to frequency of worship and racial attitudes.”

The 12 percent of respondents with alt-right views were also more likely to be divorced than either to be married or have never married at all – 18.24 percent, compared to 10.37 percent who are married and 11.24 who have never been married.

While considering theories that the breakdown of traditional family structures and values had contributed to the rise of far-right identity politics, Hawley said that there was no “compelling evidence that the breakdown of traditional family norms is leading to a new interest in right-wing radicalism.”

“However,” Hawley noted, “the results for divorce are more interesting. On every one of these questions mentioned earlier, for example, divorced respondents were consistently one of the highest scoring groups. This may seem curious, as there is not an obvious connection between being divorced and feelings about race. It is possible that the experience of divorce makes one feel more alienated and negative in general.”

The analysis was presented by the Institute of Family Studies. Its release comes only days before a Unite the Right rally will be held in Washington, D.C., on August 11-12.

The rally will mark the first anniversary of the of the 2017 Unite the Right demonstration in Charlottesville, Va., during which white supremacists marched through the streets, displayed Nazi flags, and shouted racist slogans. Clashes with counter protestors resulted in more than 30 people being injured, and a woman was killed when one man linked to white-supremacist groups rammed his car into a crowd of counter-demonstrators.

In response to last year’s events, Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia said in 2017 that “Charlottesville matters,” calling it a “snapshot of our public unraveling into real hatreds brutally expressed.” He lamented the rise of far-right and racist attitudes and the “collapse of restraint and mutual respect now taking place across the country.”

The National Park Service has confirmed that a permit has been issued to Unite the Right organizer John Kessler to demonstrate outside of the White House on Sunday night. That rally is expected to draw an estimated 400 people. Meanwhile, several permits have also been issued to counter-protesters at different locations around Washington. Some estimates suggest that several thousand people could arrive to protest what is expected to be an overtly racist and provocative display.

In November 2017, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington D.C., issued the the first pastoral letter on race by a senior American bishop in almost thirty years. Entitled “The Challenge of Racism Today,” the letter denounced racism “in whatever form” as “ultimately a denial of human dignity.” 

CNA obtained a statement Wuerl plans to issue in advance of Sunday’s rally, in which the cardinal will remind Washington-area Catholics that “in the face of groups whose message we deplore and even as they exercise their First Amendment right, we must stand firm in our convictions.  We cannot let these messages that we reject somehow change us. Rather, we must continue to stand up for a good and just society, speaking the truth in love.”

Weâ??ll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people. Weâ??ll examine news reports from the past seven days and â?? hopefully â?? promote a constructive dialog. #ANTIBLACKNESS This week marked the 30th anniversary of the 1985 bombing of the MOVE residence in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Whites mused over the 11 adults and children who were killed and the dozens of black houses burned to the ground. No one was criminally charged for this catastrophe, and this week it was announced that no one would be charged for the police killing of Tony Robinson in Wisconsin. Abrupt disciplinary action was taken against New Jersey public school teacher Marilyn Zuniga; she was terminated for allowing her 3rd grade students to write "get well" cards to journalist and convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. In another prison news, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was sentenced to the death penalty; perhaps this impacted some of our listeners thoughts on whether or not the convicted bomber is accepted as White. And Chicago had a bit of it all: An announcement of millions in reparations for black victims of Chicago Police Terrorism. And Chicago's South Side being awarded the Barack Obama presidential library. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://tiny.cc/ledjb CALL IN NUMBER: 760.569.7676 CODE 564943# SKYPE: FREECONFERENCECALLHD.7676 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

Gwen Ragsdale returns to The Context of White Supremacy. Mrs. Ragsdale and her husband created the Lest We Forget Black Holocaust Slavery Museum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The museum is dedicated to making certain that the legacy of slavery be told accurately and to increase awareness of the impact of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. In addition to producing an award-winning documentary film (My Slave Sister, Myself), Mrs. Ragsdale wrote a novel covering the historical relationship between black females and White Women, Peculiar Relationships. The fictional account extends from the plantation era of slavery to modern times. There are several representations of well-intentioned, "good" White Women alongside cruel, despotic damsels. We're excited to discover what Ms. Ragsdale hopes readers learn from this book and her own thoughts and experiences with White chics. #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

If "justice rolls down like water," we hope it's not from Flint, Michigan's water supply. The toxic water in the predominantly black city is attracting growing attention and calls for Suspected Racist Governor Rick Snyder to resign. Speaking of justice, Oklahoma City police officer and convicted sexual predator Daniel Holtzclaw was sentenced to 263 consecutive years in prison for multiple counts of rape and sexual terrorism of black females. His attorney has vowed to appeal. And echoing the suspicious deaths of Sandra Bland and Kimberly Randle-King, Gynnya McMillen, a 16-year-old black female, was reportedly found dead in a Kentucky juvenile detention center.

This Philadelphia, Pennsylvania collective worked diligently to combat police terrorism, corruption, pollution and the general war on black people. In 1985, local government officials decided to detonate an incendiary devise that burned down the MOVE house and killed eleven people including children. The blaze ultimately destroyed the entire neighborhood of over 60 black-owned houses. Several MOVE members remain incarcerated to this day. We'll get Ramona Africa's views on her time in the organization, fellow Pennsylvania freedom fighter Mumia Abu-Jamal, and the reported police shootings in Dallas and Baton Rouge.

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

Sue Africa was a part of the MOVE organization at the time of the 1985 bombing of group's residence. However, she was in prison at the time of the massacre. Her son, Tomaso Africa, was one the eleven fatalities. We're eager to hear her views on Ramona Africa's conclusion that Sue Africa has suffered more or as much as any black member of MOVE.

The Context of White Supremacy hosts a counter-racist review of Sue Africa's recent performance on the broadcast. Sue Africa is one of the few White members of the Philadelphia MOVE collective. She's been with he group for more than thirty years, spent time in prison, and was confined to a mental institution as a result of her activities. Ramona Africa said that Sue Africa has suffered as much or more than any other MOVE member. During her visit to The C.O.W.S., Sue Africa agreed that it is logical for non-white people to not trust any White person until White Supremacy has been permanently eliminated. However, she was extremely agitated about being questioned with suspicion as a White Woman. She did share intriguing anecdotes about how she practiced White Supremacy against black members of MOVE; she testified that she used a coat made by a member's black grandmother as a blanket for her hounds. When asked if she continues to practice Racism (White Supremacy) and why she emplys profanity to communicate, she became defensive and accused Gus of being a "cop."

Automobile titan Dodge was also admonished for exploiting the legacy of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in a Super Bowl advertisement peddling vehicles. The area of entertainment dominated the week with the release of Marvel's Black Panther. Much like the 2017 smash Get Out, the portrayal of black "superheroes" who use their time and energy in pursuit of justice is being promoted globally and critically acclaimed. Speaking of a "superhero," PBS released a superb documentary on South African freedom fighter Winnie Mandela. The film details her philosophy on counter-violence, her decades of service to counter-racism, and the strategic and international efforts Whites made to neutralize and dominate the Mandelas, all black people. Apartheid-style violence was on display in Gus's Seattle, Washington, where a black male was mauled with a baseball bat by White Terrorists. The Race Soldiers were allegedly motivated to violence because the black male was rumored to be sexually involved with a White Woman.

The billion dollar coffee conglomerate decided to plan "racial bias" training for May of this year, ostensibly to keep White and non-white employees from criminalizing black patrons who enter the cafe. Gus found it curious that Starbucks didn't institute "racial bias" training for their employees in 2015 when they attracted national attention and scorn for their campaign to encourage dialog between customers and baristas about Racism. Speaking of removals, a monument to the White "father of gynecology," J. Marion Sims was uprooted from New York City's Central Park. Sims enslaved and tortured black females to refine his medical research, and for years many protested the statues throughout the U.S. in his honor. An intimately related subject, black maternal mortality rates, continues to be one of the more popular recent talking points on major, White-dominated news outlets. #MamaWinnie INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943#

          Sanctuary City Philadelphia Is Complicit In Child Rape..      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Department of Justice is prosecuting a previously deported illegal alien from Honduras for illegal re-entry while he is in prison for raping a small child after release by the city of Philadelphia.

Illegal alien Juan Ramon Vasquez was previously deported in May 2009 and resurfaced on the radar of U.S. authorities in May 2014 after an arrest in Philadelphia. ICE agents were unable to detain Vasquez and re-deport him, however, because he was released by the city, which has a sanctuary policy for illegal aliens.

Vasquez committed the rape of the child after his release.

“The facts of this case highlight the danger posed by the City of Philadelphia’s decision to disregard ICE detainers and release previously deported aliens from local custody,” said U.S. Attorney McSwain said in a Wednesday statement, adding, “This defendant received a free pass from the City of Philadelphia and its Department of Prisons, headed straight back into our community, and committed a heinous crime he never would have had the chance to commit had the City of Philadelphia complied with...Read More HERE

40 years later: Time to MOVE on?

By Dennis Hartley





Yesterday marked an auspicious anniversary. From the transcript of this morning’s Democracy Now broadcast:

JUAN GONZÁLEZ: Well, today marks the 40th anniversary of a massive police operation in Philadelphia that culminated in the siege of the headquarters of a radical group known as MOVE, dedicated to black liberation and a back-to-nature lifestyle. The group was founded by John Africa, and all its members took the surname Africa. It was August 8th, 1978, when police tried to remove members of MOVE from their communal home with water cannons and battering rams, even as some continued to hide in the basement with children. This is how an eyewitness described the scene in the documentary MOVE: Confrontation in Philadelphia. The documentary was directed and produced by Karen Pomer and Jane Manicini.

EYEWITNESS: I was standing on the porch, 3207—3207 Pearl Street. And I could hear—well, it’s only about 20 feet from MOVE headquarters. I could hear voices. I could distinguish who was calling. You know, I could distinguish the kids crying. You know, very clearly, he was calling out for help.

REPORTER: And two minutes later, hoses are blasted at the house to flood MOVE members out of the basement.

JUAN GONZÁLEZ: During the siege on MOVE’s house, gunfire was exchanged, and a police officer named James Ramp was killed. MOVE members were beaten by officers as they were forced out of the home, including Delbert Africa, who was unarmed and half-naked as TV news cameras filmed police grabbing him by his dreadlocks, throwing him to the ground and kicking and stomping him. Two years later, nine MOVE members were convicted of third-degree murder in Ramp’s death. They were sentenced to 30 to 100 years in prison and became the MOVE 9.

AMY GOODMAN: Philadelphia police attacks on MOVE would later reach new levels on May 13, 1985, when they surrounded the MOVE house, fired thousands of rounds of ammunition, then dropped a bomb on the house from a helicopter. The fire from the attack incinerated six adults and five children and destroyed not only the MOVE home, but 65 homes in the neighborhood.

Goodman goes on to conduct an interesting interview with Debbie Africa, the first of the “MOVE 9” to be released from prison, and her son Mike Jr., who was born soon after his mother was incarcerated (they were reunited this past June, when Debbie was paroled).

The rise and fall of the MOVE organization is one of the more fascinating (and tragic) chapters in America’s sociopolitical history. While I have not had a chance to see the aforementioned documentary, I did write a piece about the related 2013 documentary Let the Fire Burn, which seems apropos to repost today. The film is well worth seeking out.

[The following was originally posted on Hullabaloo on December 7, 2013)]

While obscured in public memory by the (relatively) more “recent” 1993 Branch Davidian siege in Waco, the eerily similar demise of the Philadelphia-based MOVE organization 8 years earlier was no less tragic on a human level, nor any less disconcerting in its ominous sociopolitical implications.

In an enlightening new documentary called Let the Fire Burn, director Jason Osder has parsed a trove of archival “live-at-the-scene” TV reports, deposition videos, law enforcement surveillance footage, and other sundry “found” footage (much of it previously unseen by the general public) and created a tight narrative that plays like an edge-of-your-seat political thriller.

Depending upon whom you might ask, MOVE was an “organization”, a “religious cult”, a “radical group”, or all of the above. The biggest question in my mind (and one the film doesn’t necessarily delve into) is whether it was another example of psychotic entelechy. So what is “psychotic entelechy”, exactly? Well, according to Stan A. Lindsay, the author of Psychotic Entelechy: The Dangers of Spiritual Gifts Theology, it would be “…the tendency of some individuals to be so desirous of fulfilling or bringing to perfection the implications of their terminologies that they engage in very hazardous or damaging actions”.

In the context of Lindsay’s book, he is expanding on some of the ideas laid down by literary theorist Kenneth Burke and applying them to possibly explain the self-destructive traits shared by the charismatic leaders of modern-day cults like The People’s Temple, Order of the Solar Tradition, Heaven’s Gate, and The Branch Davidians. He ponders whether all the tragic deaths that resulted should be labeled as “suicides, murders, or accidents”.

Whether MOVE belongs on that list is perhaps debatable, but in Osder’s film, you do get the sense that leader John Africa (an adapted surname that all followers used) was a charismatic person. He founded the group in 1972, based on an odd hodgepodge of tenets borrowed from Rastafarianism, Black Nationalism and green politics; with a Luddite view of technology (think ELF meets the Panthers…by way of the Amish). Toss in some vaguely egalitarian philosophies about communal living, and I think you’re there.

The group, which shared a town house, largely kept itself to itself (at least at first) but started to draw the attention of Philadelphia law enforcement when a number of their neighbors began expressing concern to the authorities about sanitation issues (the group built compost piles around their building using refuse and human excrement) and the distressing appearance of possible malnutrition among the children of the commune (some of the footage in the film would seem to bear out the latter claim).

The city engaged in a year-long bureaucratic standoff with MOVE over their refusal to vacate, culminating in an attempted forced removal turned-gun battle with police in 1978 that left one officer dead. Nine MOVE members were convicted of 3rd-degree murder and jailed.

The remaining members of MOVE relocated their HQ, but it didn’t take long to wear out their welcome with the new neighbors (John Africa’s strange, rambling political harangues, delivered via loudspeakers mounted outside the MOVE house certainly didn’t help). Africa and his followers began to develop a siege mentality, shuttering up all the windows and constructing a makeshift pillbox style bunker on the roof. Naturally, these actions only served to ratchet up the tension and goad local law enforcement.

On May 13, 1985 it all came to a head when a heavily armed contingent of cops moved in, ostensibly to arrest MOVE members on a number of indictments. Anyone who remembers the shocking news footage knows that the day did not end well. Gunfire was exchanged after tear gas and high-pressure water hoses failed to end the standoff, so authorities decided to take a little shortcut and drop a satchel of C-4 onto the roof of the building. 11 MOVE members (including 5 children) died in the resulting inferno, which consumed 61 homes.

Putting aside any debate or speculation for a moment over whether or not John Africa and his disciples were deranged criminals, or whether or not the group’s actions were self-consciously provocative or politically convoluted, one simple fact remains and bears repeating: “Someone” decided that it was a perfectly acceptable action plan, in the middle of a dense residential neighborhood (located in the City of Brotherly Love, no less) to drop a bomb on a building with children inside it.

Even more appalling is the callous indifference and casual racism displayed by some of the officials and police who are seen in the film testifying before the Mayor’s investigative commission (the sole ray of light, one compassionate officer who braved crossfire to help a young boy escape the burning building, was chastised by fellow officers afterward as a “nigger lover” for his trouble).

Let the Fire Burn is not only an essential document of an American tragedy, but a cautionary tale and vital reminder of how far we still have go in purging the vestiges of institutional racism in this country (1985 was not that long ago).

In a strange bit of Kismet, I saw this film the day before Nelson Mandela died, which has naturally prompted a steady stream of retrospectives about Apartheid on the nightly news. Did you know that in 1985, there was a raging debate over whether we should impose sanctions on South Africa? (*sigh*) Sometimes you can’t see the forest for the trees.

Crash leaves septic truck upside-down in backyard pool
MILLERSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a loaded septic truck somehow overturned and landed wheels-up in the backyard pool of a Pennsylvania home.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
Conestoga Volunteer Fire Company Chief Larry Frankford says no one was hurt in the Thursday afternoon accident but it's left behind a very unpleasant smell.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
He says "you can just use your imagination" about the smell from the combination of diesel fuel, oil and human sewage.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
Crews were able remove the sewage before using a rotating wrecker to attempt to extract the truck from the pool.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
Frankford says the truck driver was attempting to avoid a road closure nearby when he somehow ended up in the water.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
The incident occurred near Millersville, about 80 miles (129 kilometers) west of Philadelphia.

Hi all! I'm a new transplant to Tuscaloosa for grad school and am ready to get my toes wet caving. I'm originally from the Philadelphia area and moved here from Utah, where I spent plenty of time canyoneering and am in search of more exciting below-ground adventures. I'm also way too into climbing and hiking/backpacking, and just started mountain biking. If anyone knows the best way for me to dive into caving, don't be a stranger!

 The History of the United States Part 5 (1865-1918)  The First Era

This time period of American history was an extraordinary transformative era. Everything changed in America after the U.S. Civil War. The North and the South (including the Midwest plus the West) became more industrialized. More Americans moved into the cities from rural locations. Many black people gained rights, but the racist backlash of Jim Crow apartheid harmed real black progress in the evils of lynching, violence, the burning of locations, rape (especially the rape of black women by white racist terrorists), and the denial of inherit voting rights. The era of Reconstruction saw historic first among many black politicians and many saw hope for the future, but it ended by 1877. Likewise African Americans formed numerous organizations and other institutions courageously to defend the human rights of black people. The end of the 19th century saw Native Americans continuously losing their lands, having their treaties broken, and many of them forced to live in harsh reservations, which was a total injustice. Immigrants came into America in the realm of 27.5 million people between 1865 and 1918). These new immigrants experienced both discrimination and hardships. Yet, they also made outstanding contributions to American society (from inventions to a myriad of cultural developments). The Gilded Age signified the growth of large corporations including robber barons. Also, it was a time where the labor movement increased in power in which they executed strikes in order for them to promote living wage,s better working conditions, and ending child labor. By the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the Progressive era developed. It did numerous goods things in helping the poor, creating legitimate regulations to promote safety, promoting conservation including environmental protections, and holding companies accountable for their actions. Their weaknesses were that many of them ignored racism that harmed the lives of black Americans and some of them advanced the evil of eugenics.

The women suffragists fought for women to have the right to vote in America (plus worldwide) and by 1920, they were victorious in their determined efforts. This was a time when American imperialism expanded globally from the Caribbean to Asia. The end of his period of time started with World War I. U.S. forces came later into the battlefield on the side of the Allied forces. WWI saw new military weapons, chemical warfare, and a more globalized world society. Domestically, the suppression of civil liberties were commonplace, which was wrong. Americans supplies of food, military supplies, and other items were crucial in the Allied victory.  After WWI, a more internationalized world would be formed with the Treaty of Versailles and the League of Nations. Self-determination among nations plus other places expanded in places like China, Turkey, Poland, the Soviet Union, etc. American culture boomed and the continued fight for equality and justice (led by African Americans and other human begins of diverse backgrounds like Native Americans, Mexican Americans, Native Americans, women, the poor, immigrants, etc.) existed.

Reconstruction

Reconstruction changed the world forever. It dealt with debates about governmental power. Also, it gave black Americans freedom that didn’t exist before the Civil War. Some historians and scholars believe that Reconstruction started as early as 1863 when the Emancipation Proclamation was issued which freed slaves in the Confederacy. The end of the Civil War saw Southern cities like Charleston and Richmond completely demolished. The South’s total wealth declined. Southern factories, plantations, and railroads were gone. The South experienced desolations as a response to the Union’s efforts to end the Confederacy. The Confederacy is to be blamed for promoting oppression.  People talked about what to do with eleven states that rebelled against the Union. Reconstruction dealt with rebuilding the South, promoting the lives of newly black freed human beings, and the future of society. African Americans continued to fight for full citizenship and equal rights after the war. Three million African Americans in the South saw a new era and they mostly lived in rural communities. That is why tons of black people were farmers back then and many black Americans came into the cities of the South for economic opportunities. While some people like General William Tecumseh Sherman wanted millions of acres of lands to be given to former slaves by the federal slaves (like forty acres and a mule doctrine of Sherman), many southern landowners opposed this idea. African Americans from the South, during the Reconstruction period and beyond, fought fight for voting rights, access to education, and other benefits that most northern black people (and all black people in general) were fighting for too. Southern white racists would fight legitimate progress at every step of the way since they wanted their status and power in society along with racists being wicked.

As early as 1864, people increasingly knew that the Union was going to win the Civil War. So, people before 1865 talked about what do with newly freed black people once the war was over. There were three views back then. One view was the progressives who wanted land sent to black Americans and full equality. Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson were the moderates who wanted an immediate reconciliation of the Confederacy to the Union after the war was over. Both Lincoln and Johnson wanted a national healing and immediate admission of rebel states into the Union. Abraham Lincoln promoted the ten percent plan. This was the Proclamation of Amnesty and Reconstruction. It wanted ten percent of a state’s voters took a loyalty oath to the Union, and then the state would set up a new government. If the state’s constitution abolished slavery and provided education for African American, then that state would regain representation in Congress. In my personal, opinion, Lincoln was too generous and too accommodating to former Confederates. For example, Lincoln wanted to give pardons (not prison time) for Confederates. He considered compensating them for lost property. He recognized the pro-Union governments of Arkansas, Louisiana, and Tennessee even though they denied African Americans the right to vote immediately after the Civil War.

Then, you have the disgusting reactionaries who rejected political and social equality for black people. The progressives included black leaders and Radical Republicans who stood out to defend the Union and they wanted punishment (including making former Confederate states to have the stipulation of swearing allegiance to the Union) sent to the rebels for their actions of extremism during the Civil War too. One leader of the Radical Republicans was Thaddeus Stevens and Charles Sumer. They opposed Lincoln’s 10 percent plan since Confederates committed the crimes of enslaving black Americans and advancing the Civil War. Lincoln’s plan was rejected and replaced with the Wade-Davis bill in 1864. This policy required the state’s prewar voters to swear loyalty to the Union before the process of restoration started. It promoted guarantees of equality to African Americans. Lincoln ended this plan by a pocket veto or withholding his signature beyond the 10 day decline with the end of the congressional session. Lincoln was wrong to do this.

On March 3, 1865, the Freedmen’s Bureau was established. This was supported by Lincoln. It was formed to give assistance to newly emancipated African Americans. It had huge successes and large economic burdens including racist terrorism harming many schools of the Freedmen’s Bureau. It ended by 1872. The Freedmen’s Bureau wanted to give newly freed black persons food, clothing, health care, and education including for white poor folks of the South. It also helped to reunite black families who were split apart as a result of slavery. It was used to aid 4 million newly freed black human beings. It spent about $5 million to set up schools for former slaves. Howard University, Hampton University, and Fisk University were founded and financed with the help from the Freedmen’s Bureau too. After April 15, 1865, Andrew Johnson was President. Johnson would go on to be one of the racist Presidents in American history. Also, he refused to support even middle of road Reconstruction measures in a vindictive way. The Union General Benjamin Butler in 1865 was elected to Congress as a Radical Republican.

After Lincoln’s assassination in April 1865, Andrew Johnson became the next President. Like Lincoln, Johnson wanted to restore Southern states to the Union as quickly as possible. His plan was to allow any Confederate in the Union if they swore alleigance to the Union and the Constitution. He also anted each state to ratify the Thirteenth Amendment and draft a Constitution that abolished slavery. He wanted wealthy planters to write to him personally in order to get a pardon as he detested wealthy planters. Like many southerners, he was a stone cold racist who wanted America to be a “government for white men.” Andrew Johnson didn’t want to give black Americans the right to vote. He believed in states’ rights in allowing the states to deprive black people human freedoms. In December of 1865, most Confederate state had met Johnson’s plan for readmission when Congress reconvened. By December 6, 1865, the 13th Amendment was ratified.

The 13th Amendment abolished slavery in the United States of America. In the same year, Southern states increase the existence of Black Codes. Black Codes are Jim Crow laws that restrict the rights of African Americans involving voting, owning businesses, owning a gun, holding office, etc. Southern states started to allow even Confederates in Congress. The black odes forced African Americans to work in a few jobs like servants or farm laborers. Many states banned black people from owning land as owning land is a key prerequisite in real economic plus political power. Vagrancy laws existed that made any black person who didn’t have a job could be arrested and made to work as prison labor (which involved kidnapping and de facto slavery). During this time when with Union military occupation of the South, many white southerners openly used violence and intimidation to enforce the black codes. This was so evil that Radical Republicans and moderate Republican fought part against the South’s disrespect of the essence of Reconstruction. When southern representative came into Washington, D.C. Congress refused their seats. Congress used a committee to investigate the treatment of former slaves. The spring of 1866 saw more events. Radical Republicans wanted to defend the rights of black people while Johnson opposed this plan. Congress passed a bill to fund the Freedmen’s Bureau. It was given authority to punish state officials who failed to extend rights to African Americans. Johnson vetoed this bill.

April 9, 1866 was the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1866. This gave citizenship to African Americans and guarantees equal rights. It created federal guarantees of civil rights and tried to stop states trying to do evil. Johnson vetoed the law and defied Congress. Later, Congress overturned the veto to make the Civil Rights Act of 1866 the law of the land. The Memphis race riot from May 1-3, 1866 was when white racists and the police killed 46 Africans and destroyed 90 homes, schools, and four churches in Memphis, Tennessee. By July 30, 1866, the New Orleans race riot had the police to murder more than 40 black Americans and white Republicans. More than 150 people were wounded. 1866 was the year when the Ku Klux Klan was formed. It was a secret organization that wanted to use murder, violence, and rape to terrorize African Americans and establish white rule n the South. It was founded in Pulaski, Tennessee. Radical and moderate Republicans blamed Johnson’s total lenient policies of compromise for the violence against black people in the South. Radical Reconstruction started when more Radical Republicans gained power in Congress.

The 1867 Reconstruction act divided the former Confederacy states (of 10 of them) into five military districts via the Military Reconstruction Act of 1867. Congress had overridden President Johnson’s veto again. The generals (who were Union generals from the Civil War) ruled those districts until the states had an oath of allegiance to the Union (and allow African Americans suffrage). These districts wanted African American men to vote as women wouldn’t be allowed to vote until the 1900’s. In 1867, the Republican convention in New Orleans has a party platform including promoting equality for African Americans.

In 1867, tension with Johnson and the Congress increased. Congress passed the Tenure Office Act to control the President’s power. It said that the President must have Senate approval before getting rid of some members of his office. Later, he tried to get rid of the last Radical Republican in his cabinet who was Secretary of War Edwin Stanton. He barricaded himself in his office for nearly 2 month. Then, the House of Representative voted to impeach Johnson for trying to fire Stanton. Johnson was so stubborn that he had an impeachment trial by the Spring of 1868. From March to May of 1868, by one vote, the U.S. Senate failed to remove President Johnson from office. The moderates didn’t want Johnson to leave office. Andrew Johnson promised to enforce the Reconstruction Acts. The Fourteenth Amendment was ratified in July 21, 1868. This Amendment guaranteed due process and equal protection under the law to African Americans. The 14th Amendment wanted to punish any state the refused to allow black people the right to vote with losing House seats. It banned leading Confederate officials from holding federal or state offices. On November 3, 1868, President Ulysses S. Grant was elected President. He was the 18th President and a former Union general. He beat Democratic candidate Horatio Seymour of New York State and he had a majority of the white vote. Congress passed the Fifteenth Amendment in 1869. It forbade any state from denying suffrage on the grounds of race, color, or previous condition of servitude. Many southern racists used loopholes to deprive black people of voting rights by using literacy or property qualifications.

This harmed African Americans and the poor. The Enforcement Act of 1870 made intimidation of people having voting rights a federal crime. The first redeemer government was in Tennessee. This was in 1869 when TN replaced a biracial Republican state government with an all-white Democratic government. This was followed by Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia in 1870. 1870 was the year when all of the former Confederate states had met the requirements under Radical Reconstruction and rejoined the Union. The Republicans dominated state governments. More African Americans used their political power to be part of government at every level. More black people were now school superintendents, sheriffs, mayor, coroners, and legislatures in the South. The Republican Party also had members who were Scalawags or poor white people who agreed with Reconstruction. Carpetbaggers came from the North and they wanted economic profit in the South via businesses. Many of them were accused of financial exploitation of people. By February 23, 1870 was when the first black senator was elected. His name was Hiram Revels of Mississippi and he was in the U.S. Senate as the first black senator.

The Fifteenth Amendment was ratified on March 30, 1870. It extended the vote to all male citizens regardless of race or previous condition of servitude. In 1871, the 43nd Congress had five black members in the House of Representatives: Benjamin S. Turner of Alabama; Josiah T. Walls of Florida; and Robert Brown Elliot, Joseph H. Rainey and Robert Carlos DeLarge of South Carolina. The first African American governor was P. B. S. Pinchback, acting governor of Louisiana from December 9, 1872 to January 13, 1873. Pinchback, a black politician, was the first black to serve as a state governor, although due to white resistance, his tenure is extremely short. In 1874, for the first time since before the Civil War, Democrats control both houses of Congress. Robert Smalls, black hero of the Civil War, elected to Congress as representative of South Carolina. Blanche K. Bruce elected to U. S. Senate. Blanche was born in Virginia as a slave. She learned to read. She left the plantation and went into Missouri during the Civil War. He ran a school for black children and came into Oberlin College in Ohio. He was a great landowner at age 25 by 1866. By his mid-thirties in 1874, he was elected to the United States Senate. Ironically, no black Congressman was elected in the North until the twentieth century. Some Republicans were wrong to not want women’s suffrage immediately since they felt that they couldn’t get enough support to get voting rights for women. Black people and women gained new opportunities during Reconstruction from working in medicine, schools, etc. Many women were leaders in orphanages and relief programs.

Schools grew in the schools. Most were segregated. A few of the Radical Republicans wanted integration. Land speculation, illiteracy, and poverty were fought against by progressive people in the South. African Americans saw a new world with Reconstruction. Most black people in the South were farmers and wanted land to cultivate their own lives and families. Many organized economic institutions and civil rights groups to fight for their rights. The reason is that freedom must be established by both using economic and political power merged into one. In other words, we have to fight for just laws and get our economic power increased in order to fight poverty plus set up our own institutions to benefit the black community as a whole. Black people worked as cooks, carpenters, blacksmiths, and other workers in southern cities. Many experienced low pay, poor food, and substandard housing. African Americans churches were places where black people worshiped, established job opportunities, organized political movements, and helped to educate black people. In rural communities, sharecropping existed. There were share tenancy and tenant farming. Sharecropping was when a landowner dictated the crop and provided the sharecropper with a place to live. In return, a share of the harvested was given to the sharecropper. The problem was that brought supplies on credit with high interest and the sharecropper were forced to pay for these expensive items. Sharecroppers would in term be in debt.

These leaders during Reconstruction (from left to right) were Robert Brown Elliot, Robert Carlos DeLarge, and Octavius Catto.

Many landlords would lie about the costs of supplies and economic exploit sharecroppers who were both black people and poor whites. Tenant farming involved renting and money management problems existed too involving tenant farming. Sharecropping extended poverty in the black community. White racism and black scapegoating contributed to the violent backlash against Reconstruction. Republicans took over the governments of the South for a time. White racist southerners formed the Ku Klux Klan as a means to stop Reconstruction. The Klan burned homes, schools, and churches. They came out in night and killed, raped, and hanged African Americans and white progressives. Anyone (a minister, a teacher, politicians, etc.), who encouraged black people to vote, were readily assaulted and murdered by the Klan. The violence against black people was very large. The Congress acted by passing the Enforcement Acts in 1870 and in 1871. It made it federal offense to interfere with a citizen’s right to vote. Congress had hearing and invited black politicians and other people to talk about South. George Ruby of Texas told Congress that he dragged into the woods and beat him because he opened a school in Louisiana. Racism terrorism was in the North too. In Philadelphia, civil rights leader Octavius Otto was murdered by a racist mob. He was a teacher and Isaiah Wears and other black protested the racism found in the North as well. Hundreds of Klansmen were indicted in America via the Enforcement Acts. After 1872, violence against black people declined temporarily. With an ex-Confederate general Wade Hampton being elected in South Carolina, the white racist backlash grew. Ulysses S. Grant did many progressive things. His administration fought southern resistance to Reconstruction. His administration later had financial scandals. Grant defeated Horace Greeley in the 1872 election. Later, greed and economic corruption saw the start of the Gilded Age. The Panic of 1873 involved a recession with failed banks and overextended loans to the railroad industry. Job losses came about. 

On March 1, 1875, the Civil Rights Act of 1875 was enacted by Congress. It guaranteed equal rights to African Americans in public accommodations and jury service. It was ruled unconstitutional in 1883. In 1876, Republicans challenged the validity of the voting in South Carolina, Florida, and Louisiana. Wade Hampton was inaugurated the governor of South Carolina, which shown that Southern reactionary extremists didn’t want Reconstruction but oppression. In 1877, Rutherford B. Hayes was inaugurated as President. The Electoral Commission awarded disputed electoral votes to the republican candidate. In 1877, Reconstruction officially ends with the disgraceful Great Compromise of 1877. This allowed Rutherford Hayes to withdrawal federal troops from the South as a means for him to be President.  Reconstruction didn’t end because of one reason. They included: the Northern support evaporated (because of reforming politics and economic matters which is no excuse since you can handle all issues at the same time), Radical Republicans either passed away or retired, Southern racists gained power in Congress, racist terrorists harmed black people and black people lacked adequate protections, and the Supreme Court promoted decisions that attacked equality. The Supreme Court in the Slaughterhouse Cases of 1873 restricted the 14th Amendment in allowing states to regulate the scope of the Amendment.

States in the South soon deprived black people rights further. The 1876 decision of United States v. Cruikshank overturned the conviction of the racist Cruikshank and wanted states to handle 14th Amendment affairs (while saying that the 14th Amendment didn’t apply to individuals). Redeemers or Southern whites who hated Reconstruction took control of legislatures throughout the South. In 1874, Republicans lost control of the House of Representatives. Reconstruction has been debated to this day. The truth is that Reconstruction was a heroic, progressive experiment. Its end should be blamed on bigots. Its goals were noble and it caused an increase of the education of African Americans, the expansion of the industrial economy, and the growth of a tax supported educational system. After 1876, bitterness between North and South continued and 100 years after Reconstruction, the second Reconstruction of the Civil Rights Movement would finally end Jim Crow apartheid once and for all. Reconstruction expanded rights and opportunities for African Americans. Also, the Reconstruction period inspired women to fight for suffrage. Women should have the right to vote ASAP just like black Americans and suffrage activists continued in their cause. Reconstruction expanded the role of the federal government and the Republican Party became known as the party of Lincoln. The Democratic Party included both reactionary southerners and industrial Northerners. The Radical Republicans ended after Reconstruction, but new activists would develop to defend the human rights of black people and humanity in general. Reconstruction truly changed the world forevermore.

The West

One of the most important parts of American history deals with the Old West. For thousands of years, Native Americans were living in the Americas. After 1787, the Construction regulated trade among the federal government and the Native Americans. The history is clear that the federal government not only broke treaties with the indigenous peoples, but outraged kidnapped them and placed them into reservations. From the 1840’s to the 1880’s, more settlers desired more lands even on Native American’s lands. After the Civil War, only 200,000 Native Americans lived to the west of the Mississippi River. Native Americans lived in different cultures and lived in diverse areas. Plains tribes like the Sioux, Blackfeet, Crows, Comanches, and Cheyenne relied on the buffalo for survival literally. Native Americans viewed the land as sacred and it wasn’t to be owned for profit while many Europeans wanted to own the land for economic reasons. Clashes occurred among settlers and Native Americans. By the 1860’s, more laws forced Native Americans to live in reservations. Those areas heavily had poverty, dilapidated lands, and other problems. This was after the 1834 law that limited trade with Native Americans and limited white settlers in Indian Territory. Many white settlers brought diseases that harmed the Native American populations and hunters by the 1870’s almost made the buffalo extinct. Some people murdered buffalos for sport. Transpiration and technology rapidly expanded into the West. With that came more conflict among Native American lifestyles and the growing American nation. Horace Greeley of the New York Tribune encouraged people to travel into the West. In 1862, Sioux Native Americans fought settlers in eastern Minnesota over territories. The Sioux rebellion escalated in 1864 when Colorado militia murdered unarmed Cheyenne and Arapaho civilians. The Native Americans raised the American flag to promote peace, but the militia murdered men, women, and even children. This was the Sand Creek massacre. War grew. John Covington was the commanding officer of the incident.

During this time, the West was transformed by railroads, ranches, and mining. Mining communities desired gold, silver, and other resources. Some authorities hired vigilantes to enforce the law in mining towns. Some mining towns existed temporarily. Chinese Americans and others helped to create the Transcontinental Railroads that expanded the developments of cities and towns. Vaqueros and ranchers owned livestock. Cowboys helped to allow cattle to travel for months into various markets. Cowboys were white, Mexican, and African American men. To this day, cowboys perform nationwide and they include women too. The West was complex with discrimination and economic growth. It had Asians, black people, Mexicans, white people, Native Americans, etc. Homesteads expanded land. Exodusters included African American who wanted to escape the South in order to have self-sufficient, autonomous communities in places like Kansas and Oklahoma. By 1890, the Western frontier era ended. The new era of the West would be filled with challenges and fights for equality among Americans.

After the Civil War, both white and black Union soldiers joined forces to subdue the Native Americans. This was imperialism and it was wrong. Recruitment efforts existed to gain more U.S. soldiers for the job. The Plains Native Americans tried to hold onto to their territories, but the federal government wouldn’t let up. In 1866, Red Cloud and his allied lured Captain William Fetterman and his troops. They killed them. Some people wanted education for Native Americans while others wanted strict rule over them. The racist United States Indian Peace Commission wanted Native Americans to submit to white civilization in order for peace to come. The Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868 dealt with Sioux lands. Promises were broken with treaties and conflict continued. The Red River War existed in the late 1800’s as far as Texas. Comanche surrendered by 1875.

The Battle of the Little Big Horn was about lands. Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull wanted to drive out prospectors in their lands. By June 1876, General George Custer was defeated by Crazy Horse with his 2,000 Native Americans. Custer and his men died. Sitting Bull escaped into Canada. Crazy Horse and his followers surrendered by starvation and bad weather. Many of the Nez Perces came into reservations, Also, Chief Joseph tried to go into Canada, but he surrendered. He came into Washington, D.C. to defend the interests of his Native American people. The Ghost Dance revival inspired a new resistance movement against U.S. imperialism. In 1890, the government wanted to arrest Sitting Bull. There was the massacre in Wounded Knee, South Dakota where over 100 men, women, and children Native Americans were murdered by U.S. forces.  Assimilation came and many Native Americans were stripped of their rights and culture. Some reformers opposed the brutal treatment of Native Americans like the author Helen Hunt Jackson. Congress passed the Dawes Act in 1887. It dealt with land allotment to Native Americans and other issues. Native Americans would continue to fight for their freedom after the 1890’s too.

Industrialization and the Guided Age

The growth of industry after the U.S. Civil War transformed the total landscape of American society. This period also involved new inventions and the Gilded Age including the growth of unions (which were created to defend the rights of workers). The Industrial Revolution started in the late 1700’s. It grew in America by the 1800’s with railroads and other devices. Coal and iron was used as resources. By the 1850’s, a new era came about in America. This new era involved steel, oil, and the new power source of electricity. This was the time when goods were created for quicker and efficiently. Immigration grew in causing more labor resources to construct railroads, goods, and other services in America. The natural resources of wood from trees, oil, etc. were utilized in many machines. 1 million immigrants per year came into America by 1905. Horatio Alger wrote his novel that mentioned the story of a poor boy who worse to wealth and fame by working hard. This promoted capitalism and entrepreneurs. Capitalism believes that the free market enterprise should dictate the functions of the economy. Entrepreneurs invested in money in a product in order for them to make profit. They worked in favor of industrialization. The factories, the mines, and the railroads grew jobs and had foreign investment too. The government encourages the free enterprise system. The government gave millions of acres of lands to railroad builders, so they could link East and West. Congress passed protective tariffs or taxes that would make imported goods cost more than goods that were made locally. Back then, little regulation of businesses occurred, which was laissez faire capitalism.

The government promoted patents to protect inventors and their inventions. In 18976, Thomas Edison worked with wealthy industrialists like j. P. Morgan to promote a research laboratory at Menlo Park, New Jersey. Edison crated a patient for the electric light bulb by 1880. IN 2 years, he installed a street lighting system in New York City.  The telegraph was invented in 1844 by Samuel Morse. The telegraph sent communications among thousands of miles in America. In 1876, Alexander graham Bell invented the telephone and in 1896, Guglielmo Marconi created the wireless telegraph which influenced the development of radio. The sewing machine was created by Elias Howe in 1846. The safety elevator was formed by Elisha Otis. In 1884, the improved steam boiler furnace was created by African American Granville Woods. This helped to power trains. Steel would grow being lightweight, but powerful. Such steel was used in skyscrapers and suspension bridges. The Brooklyn Bridge is a suspension bridge being the first of its kind spanning the East River in New York City. It was completed in 1883. It was the largest bridge in the world back then. Modern time zones would form by the 18 80’s and growth would develop mass production. World markets would be linked more closely with the explosion of modern inventions. More Americans moved into the cities from rural farms. America became a more powerful global political, economic power. Industrial waste increased including dust storms and agricultural problems too, so the environmental movement inspired the creation of the National Park Service and Yellowstone Park in 1872.

Image result for robber baronsImage result for robber barons

With the growth of business, corporations would dominate railroad systems, resources, and other goods plus services. One robber baron was Andrew Carnegie. Corporations were owned by a group of shareholders. Investors would have a dedication to fund the growth of corporations too. Corporations would be dictated by public shareholders, under them would be the Board of Directors, under them were the managers, and the managers control the employees. J. P. Morgan and Cornelius Vanderbilt had massive power. Some corporations dominated a product or service which would be a monopoly. John D. Rockefeller would make deals with railroads in growing his oil profits. Horizontal integration and vertical integration were tactics used by corporations in controlling profits and products. Trusts were used by John D. Rockefeller in order to escape state law preventing companies from owning stock of another company. The paradox is that many robber barons like Carnegie, Rockefeller, and Vanderbilt used cut throat tactics in their economic policies while investing in universities, museums, and libraries at the same time (which they felt would give the disadvantaged the chance to attain wealth). Social Darwinism is related to Charles Darwin’s Origin of the Species book. Social Darwinism means that wealth was one measure of one inherit value and those most fit are entitled to that wealth. Social Darwinism is evil since it promotes classism and it is overtly bigoted against the poor. With these monopolies growing, the government took action. The U.S. Senate created the ICC or the interstate Commerce Commission to oversee railroad operation. The Sherman Antitrust Act in 1890 was passed by the Senate to regulate trusts. It would be rarely enforced until the Progressive Age years later.



With this massive era of the Gilded Age, the workers fought back for economic justice heroically.  Business owners and workers struggles in the midst of conflicts and disagreements on how to move forward. Workers experienced heavy hardships during the Gilded Age. Many workers faced long hours, bad conditions, injuries, and even death from working accidents. Men, women, and children worked in factories. Families struggled to get child care or education for children. Later, states passed laws to ban child labor. Company towns were about business renting areas where workers would live. Corruption inspired the growth of labor union. Labor union fought for workers’ rights like collective bargaining. This was about benefits helping workers. They came after a strike. The National Trades Union was the first national labor union being founded in 1834. Many groups wanted higher wages and the 10 hour work day. Socialism grew too. Socialism believed in public control of property and income. German philosophers Karl Marx and Freiderich Engels promoted the ideas of socialism with their book entitled, The Communist Manifesto. It predicted that capitalism would end when workers would rise up to overturn it. Most Americans rejected Communism, but socialism was popular in many smaller circles back then and today.

Image result for Knights of LaborImage result for Haymarket Square strike

The Knights of Labor was created by Uriah Smith Stephen to defend labor rights. They even recruited African Americans. Stephens wanted a workers’ cooperative to replace capitalism. By 1885, the Knights of Labor had women and people of every race or ethnicity. It disappeared largely by the 1890’s. Samuel Gompers created the American Federation or the AFL in 1886. The AFL wanted union to protect crafts making workers. They wanted higher wages, great working conditions, and low working hours. The AFL excluded women since they falsely believed that women depressed wages. Many AFL excluded black workers when they had no explicit policy banning black people form joining. Strikes occurred in 1877 involving railroad workers. The Haymarket Square strike in 1886 in Chicago wanted an eight hour work day. Many people left the Knights of Labor afterwards. The Homestead Strike wanted higher wages and the Pullman strikes wanted a better cost of living and higher wages. Eugene V. Debs was a leader in that strike. Debs was arrested for being involved in the strike. Debs would be a socialist and help for form the IWW or the Industrial Workers of the World. The Gilded Age ironically helped to spread socialism and labor rights activists worldwide, because the corruption of robber barons were so overt that radical change would be necessary for justice to exist for workers. The Gilded Age saw more skyscrapers, more mass transit like cable cars being electric, trolley cars, and the first subway system in Boston by 1897. New York City had its subway system by 1904.

New Social Realities

America is based on diverse peoples representing their cultures. During the era after the Civil War, massive urbanization (or the rapid growth of cities) developed along with industrialization (or the growth of factories and railroads). There was an expansion of farming as well. This was facilitated by increased high levels of immigration. From 1865 to 1918, there was a historic, unprecedented plus diverse amount of immigrants who came into the United States of America. They came into America in the number of 27.5 million people. 89% of these immigrants or 24.4 million people came from Europe, 2.9 million from Britain, 2.2 million from Ireland, 2.1 million from Scandinavia, 3.8 million from Germany, 4.1 million from Italy, 7.8 million from Russia and other parts of eastern and central Europe. Another 1.7 million came from Canada. Many came from Africa and the Caribbean too. Most of these human beings came through the port of New York City, and from 1892, through the immigration station on Ellis Island. Many ethnic groups settled in different locations. New York City and other large cities of the East Coast became home to large Jewish, Irish, and Italian populations. Many Germans and Central Europeans moved into the Midwest. Some of them had jobs in industry and mining. At the same time, about one million French Canadians migrated from Quebec into New England. Immigrants came into America because of poverty, religious threats. They saw America as the “Promised Land” of milk and honey. Many wanted jobs, farmland, and had kin connections to those in America too. Many of them worked at factories, mines, and construction sites. Some found farming opportunities in the Plains states. Many immigrants were welcomed (other European immigrants weren't for a time) while Asian people experienced massive racism and discrimination. Many Chinese Americans constructed railroads in the West Coast, but were treated in a dismissive fashion unlike Western European immigrants. After massively racist, intense anti-Chinese agitation in the West, Congress passed the evil Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. It was signed into law by President Chester A. Arthur. It suspended Chinese immigration for 10 years and then it was renewed in 1892 and made banning Chinese immigration permanent in 1902. It was the first evil American law to prevent a specific ethnic group from immigrating into America. It was repealed by the Magnuson Act of December 17, 1943. Yet, even that law allowed for the continuation of the ban against ownership of property and businesses by the ethnic Chinese.  In many states, Chinese Americans (including US citizens) were denied property-ownership rights either by law or de facto until the Magnuson Act itself was fully repealed in 1965. Some immigrants stayed temporarily in the U.S. then returned home, often with savings that made them relatively prosperous. Most, however, permanently left their native lands and stayed in hope of finding a better life in the New World. This desire for freedom and prosperity led to the famous term, the American Dream.

In terms of the religion, the Third Great Awakening existed from the late 1850’s to the early 1900’s. It saw the growth of evangelical Protestantism from the late 1850’s to the early 1900’s. During this time, this movement promoted social activism and affected pietistic Protestant denominations. Many followers of this Awakening believed in the postmillennial theology that the Second Coming of Jesus Christ would come after humankind had reformed the whole earth. A major component was the Social Gospel Movement, which applied Christianity to social issues and gained its force from the Awakening, as did the worldwide missionary movement. New groupings emerged, such as the Holiness movement and Nazarene movements, and Christian Science. At the same time, the Catholic Church grew rapidly, with a base in the German, Irish, Polish, and Italian immigrant communities, and a leadership drawn from the Irish. The Catholics were largely working class and concentrated in the industrial cities and mining towns, where they built churches, parochial schools, and charitable institutions, as well as colleges. The Jewish community grew rapidly, especially from the new arrivals from Eastern Europe who settled chiefly in New York City. They avoided the Reform synagogues of the older German Jewish people and instead formed Orthodox and Conservative synagogues.

Race relations between 1877 and 1918 were horrible. Black Americans during this time lost many of their civil rights obtained via Reconstruction. Many African Americans suffered racial discrimination, racist lynching, violence, and anti-black racial riots. This led to many problems in the living conditions of many African Americans. The South expanded Jim Crow laws. These laws didn’t just deal with restricting voting (literacy tests, poll taxes, and grandfather clauses were used to deprive black people in the South to vote). Grandfather clauses didn’t want people to vote if their grandfathers didn’t vote before 1866. Since, many black people in the South were slaves before 1866, many black people weren’t allowed to vote. It meant separate, unequal restaurants, trains, pools, cemeteries, schools, and other facets of society. Many white people formed all white primaries to only allow whites to have a voice in elections. In 1896, Homer Plessy, an African American, was denied of his rights via the Supreme Court’s Plessy v. Ferguson decision. That decision upheld racial segregation via its sick “separate but equal” doctrine. The case came after Homer Plessy sat in a white section of a Louisiana train car. By the end of World War II, only 3 percent of African Americans had the right to vote. Black people in Louisiana went from 130,000 people voting in 1894 to only 1,300 people voting in 1904. Black Americans fought back too. Frederick Douglass lived during racial oppression, but told his allies to continue to agitate and fight for freedom by the late 1800’s. Black Americans created civil rights groups, women’s clubs, fraternal organizations, schools, colleges, and political organizations in fighting for our human rights back then. Many black people had diverse views on how to achieve equality (like Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois), but they agreed with the same goal (which is equality and justice for black people). Booker T. Washington was born a slave and became free. His legacy was part of educational opportunities for those of black African descent. He was right to advance education and vocational work for African Americans. He was right to promote land ownership. He was wrong to advance the principle that true equal rights must be based on previous preparation for it. Freedom is not based on a clock, but should be given immediate irrespectively of anything. He was also wrong to believe in a capitalist extremism and to promote the Atlanta Compromise since justice is not compromise, but liberation. You don’t compromise with your oppressor, but you defeat your oppression. Later in his life, Booker T. Washington would support efforts to end Jim Crow.

W.E. B. DuBois believed that political agitation and embracing a liberal arts education would cause equality for black people. DuBois is right that no accommodating of southern white racists is needed and he was right that black people should demand for immediate equality via political agitation. DuBois was wrong to advance the Talented Tenth principle or a select of bourgeois black people being made leaders of the black community. Leadership is egalitarian not possessed on a very few amount of people. We can all be leaders. DuBois is right to promote many progressive positions on housing, the economy, and on being anti-imperialist. Ida B. Wells also opposed lynching and racism. She was raised in Holly Springs, Mississippi. She knew both Frederick Douglass and WEB DuBois. She was one founde

          Merger cancellation pushes Rite Aid into uncertain future      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Rite Aid shares plunged Thursday as the company headed into an uncertain future after calling off its merger with the grocer Albertsons.

Analysts and retail insiders questioned the drugstore chain's prospects after it ended a planned takeover by Albertsons before Rite Aid shareholders could vote on it. That vote also faced shaky prospects due to opposition from shareholders and influential proxy advisory firms.

Rite Aid Chairman and CEO John Standley said in a prepared statement that his company would continue to "build momentum" for big parts of its business like its renovated stores, expanded pharmacy services and its customer loyalty program. Rite Aid also said its board will consider governance changes, although it did not elaborate.

The company also has a pharmacy benefit management, or PBM, operation that runs prescription drug coverage and diversifies its business. But Rite Aid is down to around 2,500 stores mostly on the East and West coasts after selling nearly 2,000 to bigger rival Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. And it doesn't operate one of the nation's largest PBMs like another competitor, CVS Health Corp.

Rite Aid Corp. has neither "the scale nor the balance sheet to compete with much larger and well-capitalized rivals," Moody's Vice President Mickey Chadha said in an email.

The Camp Hill, Pennsylvania-based company has struggled with high debt levels and tough competition, as narrowing drugstore networks have pushed customers away from its stores. Earlier this week, it chopped its fiscal 2019 forecast because generic drug pricing also wasn't shaping up how it expected in April, when it first laid out expectations.

A deal with the owner of Safeway and other grocery brands would have helped Rite Aid by creating food and drugstore combinations, and it would have given the chain better access to financial markets for things like opening new stores or improving existing ones, said Burt P. Flickinger III, managing director of the retail consultant Strategic Resource Group. Flickinger has worked with both companies.

He said Rite Aid needs a large investment to help shift its store inventory toward more health and beauty products, like Walgreens and CVS have done, and away from low-margin items like cigarettes that also are prime shoplifting targets.

Flickinger said the Albertsons deal may have been "the last, best, and final opportunity for Rite Aid's longer term viability."

Privately held Albertsons Cos., based in Boise, Idaho, was offering either a share of its stock and $1.83 in cash or slightly more than one Albertsons share for every 10 Rite Aid shares. But that offer attracted widespread opposition.

One of Rite Aid's biggest shareholders, Highfields Capital Management, said that deal was "in the best interests of Albertsons and Rite Aid management, but not Rite Aid shareholders." The investment firm said in June that it would vote its roughly 47 million shares against the deal.

Two prominent shareholder advisory firms — Glass Lewis & Co. and Institutional Shareholder Services — also recommended no votes. Glass Lewis said the deal was "not critical to Rite Aid's viability" and provided no meaningful premium to investors.

ISS, meanwhile, said it was concerned that the deal would introduce a new set of risks from the grocery business.

Walgreens also had tried unsuccessfully to buy all of Rite Aid in a deal that fell apart last year after encountering regulatory resistance. The Deerfield, Illinois, company then settled for buying a portion of Rite Aid's stores for about $4.38 billion.

Shares of Rite Aid fell 11.5 percent to close Thursday at $1.54, the stock's worst sell-off in a year.

          Chipotle is adding bacon to the menu, and it reveals how drastically the chain has had to change in the wake of its E. coli scandal (CMG)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

chipotle bacon

  • Chipotle is adding bacon to the menu in eight restaurants, with plans for a national rollout if the test goes well. 
  • Bacon is just one of a number of new menu tests and deals that would have been unthinkable at Chipotle until recently.
  • Chipotle is undergoing a period of intense change. A number of executives have left the chain recently, and Brian Niccol, previously CEO of Taco Bell, became Chipotle's CEO in March.

 

Chipotle is adding bacon to the menu. 

The fast-casual chain announced on Thursday that it is adding Applewood Smoked Bacon to the menu in eight restaurants in Orange County, California, after a successful trial in the New York City test kitchen. 

"We found consumers added bacon to their traditional bowls, burritos, tacos and nachos while also enjoying new items such as the BLT quesadilla with bacon, lettuce, tomato and cheese grilled to perfection," Chris Brandt, chief marketing officer at Chipotle, said in a statement. 

If the bacon does well in Orange County — the region where Chipotle is moving its headquarters later this year — the meaty add-on will go national. 

Chipotle, known for its "food with integrity" motto, has long resisted adding new items to the menu, a strategy that is quickly changing under the leadership of new CEO Brian Niccol.

The company also announced on Thursday that it is expanding its test of build-your-own nachos in Denver and Minneapolis-St. Paul this October. Chipotle has been serving nachos in the test kitchen since 2017. 

Chipotle also announced two new deals, in another new strategy from the chain.

Chipotle Tostada

From Thursday through September 30, customers in Miami and Dallas can order tacos for $2 with the purchase of any drink after 8 p.m., with locations staying open until 11 p.m. to satisfy expected demand. In select Philadelphia and Indianapolis restaurants, customers will be able to add chips and a drink to their order for $3.

"Available in-restaurant and for a limited time only, the promotions are being tested via Chipotle's new stage-gate process, which allows the company to test, learn, listen to customer feedback, and iterate extensively before moving ahead with a national launch," the company said in a statement. 

The abundance of new menu tests and deals would be unthinkable for Chipotle even a year ago. However, the chain has continued to struggle to overcome its sales slump since it was linked to an E. coli outbreak almost three years ago. A recent food-poisoning outbreak linked to Chipotle has reignited concerns as investigators remain unable to trace the source of the outbreak. 

Chipotle is undergoing a period of intense change. A number of executives have left the chain recently, and Niccol, previously CEO of Taco Bell, became Chipotle's CEO in March. Taco Bell experienced a period of impressive growth under Niccol's leadership as the CEO pushed for more creative marketing and wild new menu items such as the Naked Chicken Chalupa.

          Children who enter adolescence with weak cognitive control are the most impulsive and face problems as young adults      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
,
Children who struggle with weak cognitive control at an early age are at most risk for trouble in adulthood following their engagement in risk-taking activities in adolescence, according to new research.

The study, published online last month in the Journal of Youth and Adolescence, found that only a subset of children who engage in excessive levels of impulsiveness, such as acting without thinking during their teen years, later struggle with addictions or other problem behaviors as young adults.

"People have heard so much about the teenage brain being all gas and no brakes, stemming from an imbalance between the reward and control regions of the brain," said lead author Atika Khurana of the University of Oregon. "This study shows that this is not true. There is an imbalance for some youth, but it is not universal."

The findings challenge the traditional thinking that adolescence is a time of universal imbalance, with kids lacking cognitive control and taking risks to reap instant rewards, said Khurana, associate professor and director of prevention science graduate programs and member of the UO's Prevention Science Institute.

"Previous studies modeling changes in impulsivity and sensation seeking during adolescence drew conclusions based on age differences without looking at the same adolescents over time as they developed," she said. "This study looked at individual trajectories and captured distinct patterns of change that were not otherwise observable when looking at youth at different ages."

Khurana and colleagues analyzed six waves of data collected from 387 adolescents, ages 11 to 18, in the Philadelphia area. They looked at changes in sensation-seeking and impulsivity during in their teen years in relation to working memory, a measure of cognitive control, and as predictors of substance use disorders in late adolescence.

Cognitive control is the ability to exert top-down control over behavior, thoughts and emotions. This ability, tied to executive functions, rests in the brain's prefrontal cortex.

Only adolescents identified at the beginning of the study with weaknesses in cognitive control were at risk for impulsive action that put them at higher risk for substance abuse, the researchers concluded. While sensation-seeking rose in adolescence, it was not associated with weakness in cognitive control or later substance abuse.

The study, funded by the National Institutes of Health, supported predictions of the Lifespan Wisdom Model developed by study co-author Daniel Romer of the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg Public Policy Center.

It also continued to support a series of published findings that have emerged from Khurana's work with the same data, which began while she was a postdoctoral fellow at the Annenberg Public Policy Center.

In 2012, her group reported a positive association of working memory with sensation-seeking and a negative association with impulsivity. While children with sensation seeking engaged in exploratory forms of risk-taking, they were not getting stuck in unhealthy patterns of risk-taking.

Subsequently, the group has shown that weak working memory in combination with impulsivity can be used to predict trajectories of early alcohol use and risky sexual behavior in adolescents, and that adolescents with strong working memory are better equipped to escape early progression in drug use and avoid substance abuse issues.

"Our research focuses on preventing maladaptive outcomes," Khurana said. "We are finding that those who have early weakness in cognitive control will have increasing problems in behavioral regulation as sensation-seeking peaks during adolescence. Those without this weakness will still seek out thrilling and rewarding behaviors during the adolescent years, associated with the rise in dopamine, but they are less likely to engage in maladaptive behaviors."

The research speaks to the need for greater emphasis on early interventions that can strengthen cognitive control, she said.

"Executive functions develop rapidly between the ages of 2-5, but there is a second window of opportunity to intervene during adolescence, when there is rapid brain development," she said.
Adolescents need to engage in exploratory behavior, she added. That is how they learn and how the brain prunes synapses that are not needed, and strengthens the connections that are relevant, she said.

Intensive Interview Contents Analysis Survey Results 상관관계 분석 Ⅲ. 결 론 Ⅳ. 참 고 문 헌 설문지 Ⅰ. 서 론 2006년 영국의 런던 대학의 조사 결과 비만도로 볼 때 세계 최저 수준인 한국 여대생의 살빼기 노력은 세계 최고 수준임이 밝혀졌다. 굳이 조사 결과를 언급하지 않아도 주위를 둘러보면 ‘다이어트 중’인 여성들을 찾는 건 어려운 일이 아니다. 여성들이 주로 회원으로 가입되어 있는 인터넷 커뮤니티 등에는 자신의 키와 몸무게 등의 ‘스펙’을 올려놓고 ‘몇 kg까지 감량해야 예뻐 보일 수 있는지’를 묻는 글도 심심치 않게 보인다. 이렇게 한국 여성들이 너나없이 다이어트를 시도하고 있다는 것은 그만큼 여성들이 자신의 몸에 만족스럽지 못한 부분을 가지고 있다는 것을 의미할 것이다. 그렇다면 왜 여성들이 이와 같은 생각을 가지게 되는 것인가? 여성들의 자신의 몸에 대한 특정한 인식 뒤에는 어떤 것들이 영향을 끼치고 있는가? 우리는 TV에서 재현되는 여성의 이미지에 주목해 보았다. TV에서 재현되는 여성의 몸은 날씬한 것이 대부분이다. 일부 그렇지 않은 여성의 몸은 희화화되거나 무성적인 것으로 치부된다. 이러한 이미지의 재현은 지속적으로 반복되어 나타난다. 여기에서 우리는 “이렇게 반복적으로 노출되는 TV에서의 여성 재현 양상이 실제 여성의 삶에 영향을 미치지 않을까?”라는 문제의식을 갖게 되었다. 이번 연구에 사용될 이론적 배경으로서 매스 미디어가 인간의 인식에 미치는 영향을 연구한 이론인 “문화계발효과이론(the Cultivation theory)”가 있다. 이는 간단히 말해서 “매스미디어는 현실세계에 대한 인간들의 상(象) 내지 관념을 구성해 주는 중대한 효과를 갖고 있다”는 요지의 이론이다. George Gerbner 등에 의해 제창된 이 이론은 ‘침묵의 와선이론’등의 이른바 매스미디어의 ‘강효과이론’들과 함께 1970년대에 대두되어 각광을 받았다. 차배근 『매스 커뮤니케이션 효과 이론』 제 2판 나남출판 2004 p.415 Gerbner와 Gross는 1976년에 발표한 그들의 논문 George Gerbner and Larry Gross TV Violence Profire 8 : Trends in Network Television Drama and Viewer Concptions of Social Reality (Philadelphia : Annenberg School of Communication University of Philadelphia 1976). 에서 “텔레비전에의 주된 기능은 사회적 양식을 전파하고 안정시키며 변화가 아니라 그 변화에 대한 저항성을 계발하는 것이다. 텔레비전은 대부분의 인간들로 하여금 표준화된 역할과 행동을 하도록 사회화(社會化)하는 미디엄이다. 한 마디로 말해서 텔레비전의 기능은 문화계발(Cultivation)이다” Ibid. p.175 라고 말하며 기존에 이루어졌던 효과 연구들이 일회성의 효과나 행동 변화 등에만 주목했던 것을 전면적으로 비판했다. 다시 말해 텔레비전이 수용자들에게 지엽적인 행동의 변화만을 촉발시키는 것이 아니라 장기적으로 영향을 형성한다는 것을 주장한 것이다. 그들은 텔레비전이 대중에게 가장 효과적으로 접근할 수 있는 매체며 사회화의 도구라는 것에 주목했다. 즉 결론적으로 텔레비전이 “현대사회에서 가장 강력한 문화적 무기로서 문화를 계발시켜 주고 있다는 것이 문화계발이론의 핵심적 가정이다.” 차배근. 『매스 커뮤니케이션 효과 이론』 제 2판 나남출판 2004 p.415 George Gerbner and Larry Gross.

          Hoy arranca oficialmente la Pretemporada de la NFL      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Se acabó la espera para los amantes de la NFL. Hoy arranca oficialmente la Pretemporada con encuentros que servirán para ir viendo un poco de los contendientes a ser protagonistas.

Para este jueves serán 12 juegos, dos más el viernes 10 de agosto, y otros dos el sábado 11 de agosto. Si bien a los jugadores titulares los cuidarán muchos, los primeros duelos que podrás disfrutar por NFL Network serán: Browns vs Giants (18:00 horas) y Cowboys vs 49ers (21:00 horas).

Otros enfrentamientos atractivos para esta Semana 1 son los siguientes: Steelers vs Eagles; Saints vs Jaguars; Redskins vs Patriots; Texans vs Chiefs; Colts vs Seahawks; y Vikings vs Broncos.

Estos primeros ensayos podrán servir para ver a los jóvenes mariscales de campo en los que apostaron varias franquicias en el pasado Draft. Una oportunidad que deben aprovechar Baker Mayfield (Browns), Sam Darnold (Jets), Josh Allen (Bills), Josh Rosen (Cardinals) y Lamar Jackson (Ravens).




También darán una idea del panorama para Pittsburgh y su novela con el corredor Le'Veon Bell; la incertidumbre en la ofensiva de Dallas; ver si la dinastía de New England se va a volver a reinventar; y qué pasará con el QB titular de Philadelphia, el actual campeón de la NFL.

Será esta y otras tres semanas más de Pretemporada, antes del Kick Off el día 6 de septiembre, con el partido entre Falcons vs Eagles.

          Trump Turns Philadelphia Eagles Event Into 'Celebration Of America'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Updated at 5:21 p.m. ET There was God Bless America, but no Swoop the Eagle. The U.S. Marine Band was there, but neither quarterback Nick Foles, nor head coach Doug Pederson, nor any member of the 2018 Super Bowl winning team was at the White House Tuesday for what was to be a celebration of the Philadelphia Eagles victory. Instead, the team's fans gathered on the South Lawn heard a selection of patriotic songs, after President Trump dis-invited the team, when it became apparent only a handful of players were likely to show up to the event, as another battle in the unending culture wars played out over social media. On Monday night, Trump tweeted that after being invited to the White House, "only a small number of players decided to come and we canceled the event." Then apparently referring to the NFL's new policy of allowing players to remain in the locker room during the playing of the national anthem rather allowing them to take a knee in protest on the field, Trump said "Staying in
          Teenaged hero sparks school board investigation into faith-based 'sex ed' in district      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Abby McElroy, a 17-year-old rising senior at Strath Haven High School in the Philadelphia suburb of Wallingford, Pennsylvania, is also a rising activist (and why wouldn't she be, she's step-daughter to our own Adam Bonin). She rocked her district's school board last month when she informed them that a local faith-based crisis pregnancy center, Amnion Pregnancy Center, had been invited into her health class to "teach" a sex ed segment.

You can imagine what they were teaching: hand-holding, hugging, and kissing were all forms of touching that release the hormone oxytocin, and "that too much youthful activity depletes oxytocin and thus makes it harder for a person to eventually bond with a future spouse has been challenged by scientists, who say it’s based on research with prairie voles, not humans." The presentation was given with the prop of a poster—entitled "The Steep Slope of Arousal"showing two stick figures, holding hands at the edge of the cliff, ready to topple "into the abyss and crash on the rocks of sexual activity." Another prop they like to use is sticky tape. McElroy says that teens were told "if you have sex with too many people it becomes less sticky—and you can't make healthy relationships." All this "science" apparently has something to do with a study of oxytocin in voles, the small rodents. The presenter also allegedly gave one of the students with questions a Bible.

The school board members, McElroy reports, "were horrified—none of them had any idea that this was going on." Marilyn Huff, Wallingford-Swarthmore school board president, said the district is investigating the class and also promised that "we will make changes,#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000" although the change is as of yet unspecified. No public funding, supposedly, went to Amnion for the class. The center is definitely faith-based, and definitely on the fringes of that faith. It "quotes the Bible on its website, accepts grant money from the socially conservative Christian Focus on the Family and has a stated goal of ending abortion in the Philadelphia suburbs." It is presenting this anti-sex, anti-health, anti-science bullshit in 25 schools in the area.

The controversy—created by McElroy's courage in standing up for her peers at the school board—highlights a larger problem in the state, which is that it has set no standards for comprehensive sex education. Charlatans like Amnion can be invited in, in this case by their health teacher, to spout their nonsense in the guise of education. When McElroy was exposed to it as a sophomore, she complained to the school principal, who told her that Amnion would not be invited back. When she found out that Amnion was back the next year, she decided she had to take larger action. Who knows, that action could conceivably end up in the state finally establishing real, science- and health-based sex education curriculum.

As it is, here's Amnion creating their future client base, because abstinence education is the most surefire way for young women to not know how not to get pregnant. They're ensuring they'll stay in business by keeping kids misinformed, and ensure that they'll continue to have pregnant young women to use in their fight against legal abortion. Just because they "teach" absolutely ridiculous nonsense doesn't mean they're stupid or they don't know exactly what they're doing.

All the kudos to Abby McElroy for doing something about it. You can watch her in action starting at about 20:20 in this video.

Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles, nursing a sore neck, and Carson Wentz, the franchise quarterback coming off knee surgery, didn't participate in the preseason opener Thursday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

          Are Hate Crimes in US Peaking?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
After four years of sharp increases, hate crimes in most major American cities fell during the first half of 2018, preliminary police data show. The total number of hate incidents in the country’s six most populous cities declined by nearly 15 percent from January through June, according to police department data collected by Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at the University of California at San Bernardino.  Among the six major cities, four — New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and Phoenix — posted sharp declines, while Houston and Philadelphia reported higher numbers. Hate crime data collected from eight other large cities showed a similarly mixed picture, with an overall slight downward trend.  The declines are significant if they hold, because they follow four years of increases in hate crimes in the nation's top 10 cities, an uptrend many experts expect to continue amid an increasingly polarized political environment and a rise in white nationalism, among other factors.  Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, said it was too early to predict whether the multiyear uptrend in hate crimes would be reversed in 2018.  “The bottom line is we’re quite happy that in some cities hate crimes are down, but they’re not down in all of them and you can’t really make a full-year prediction, particularly at a time when we’re so polarized with only the half year in,” Levin said. Levin said there is a “cyclicality” to hate crimes, with the latter quarters of the year showing a larger number of incidents. He also noted that while overall hate crimes fell in major cities, those involving violence, including assault and aggravated assault, rose.  “Hate crime laws might be making a difference, at least in the sense that some of the more minor types of hate crimes are decreasing in certain areas, while the more hard, violent ones are going up,” he said. Cities with declines Among the cities that saw declines in Levin's report, the number of hate crimes in New York fell to 164 incidents from 197, a decline of 17 percent. In Los Angeles, the number slipped to 124 from 134, down 7.5 percent. In Chicago, it dropped by 23 percent, from 39 incidents to 30 incidents. Washington, D.C., reported a 17 percent increase in the number of incidents, from 72 to 84. Julie Justicz, director of the hate crime project at the Chicago Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights, downplayed the significance of the reported decline in Chicago and elsewhere, noting that hate crimes are notoriously underreported. "We have continued reports of hate crimes and hate instances from people throughout the city of Chicago and surrounding suburban areas," Justicz said in an interview with VOA.  The FBI defines a hate crime as a criminal offense motivated by race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender or gender identity. Federal and state hate crime laws impose additional penalties on criminals committing offenses motivated by bias.   The surge in hate crimes in recent years has brought heightened attention on the problem, spurring federal and local officials and law enforcement authorities to promise action.  Last year, after a deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, more than 200 mayors joined the Anti-Defamation League in signing a compact “to fight hate and extremism.” Attorney General Jeff Sessions has made combating hate crime part of his campaign against violent crime, saying in November the Justice Department “is committed to ensuring that individuals can live without fear of being a victim of violent crime based on who they are, what they believe or how they worship.” In June, a year after it held a hate crime summit, the Justice Department reported it had indicted 32 individuals involved in hate crimes and secured the convictions of an equal number of defendants for hate crimes since President Donald Trump took office in January 2017.

          Leftism’s dire consequences, Chicago edition      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
(Paul Mirengoff) Earlier today, I wrote about how Philadelphia’s sanctuary city policy caused a child to be raped. Philadelphia authorities refused ICE’s request to detain a previously deported illegal immigrant. Instead, they released the man, who then committed rape. This was clear case of the left’s agenda trumping concerns for public safety. The consequences were dire for the illegal immigrant’s victim. But leftism is also producing dire consequences for entire communities. Areas
          New Report Says Philadelphia Leads US In Wage Growth      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A new economic analysis by Glassdoor’s Local Pay Reports says Philadelphia leads the nation in wage growth over the last year, printing around 2.8 percent growth since July 2017, bringing the median base salary to $55,723 per year.

Glassdoor’s report is designed to provide a real-time overview of trends in median base salary for full-time U.S. workers in ten cities through an analysis of anonymous salary data from millions of employees.

As noted by Bloomberg, San Francisco experienced 2.7 percent growth, New York City saw 2.6 percent growth and Los Angeles saw 2.6 percent growth, ranking as the cities with the next fastest pay increase. San Francisco had the highest median base pay at $69,404 per year, which printed at a $17,000 premium versus the national average.

“Cost of living is certainly one factor that’s driving up wages for workers in these cities,” wrote Alison Sullivan, career trends analyst at Glassdoor, in an email to Bloomberg.

The report, which examined wage growth among 84 jobs across 15 industries, discovered that certain professions were doing much better than others. Jobs in the financial sector experienced some of the fastest pay increases, according to the report, noting that bank tellers saw 8.2 percent growth in wages, while financial advisers and financial managers saw 4.9 percent and 4.7 percent growth, respectively.

“Many of these bigger cities are also home to industries like tech, finance, and healthcare,” Sullivan said.

“These industries have several high-demand roles they’re hiring for and employers are using higher pay as one mechanism to attract talent.”

In Philadelphia, most of the wage growth is driven by health-care and pharmaceutical companies that demand strong millennial talent from higher education institutions around the region.

Bloomberg also noted that Washington, D.C., Atlanta and Boston observed the lowest annual pay increases in July, expanding by 1.7 percent, 1.9 percent, and 2 percent, respectively.

The report can be misleading when placed in a broader context than the professions generally covered by Glassdoor, said PhillyVoice.

The most recent data from the Federal Reserve revealed that Philadelphia’s median household income level was $41,449, which includes residences with more than one job — not just a single wage.

Another shocking reality is that Philadelphia has the highest rate of deep poverty (an income of less than $10,000, or 50 percent of the federal poverty threshold) of any large city.

“The comparatively favorable cost of living in Philadelphia is in fact primarily offset for renters, who generally receive lower wages than those in other large U.S. cities. That challenge was highlighted in a recent collaboration between PropertyShark and RENTCafé, which found deficits in discretionary income for both homeowners and renters,” said PhillyVoice.

Regardless of the different figures, “the steady uptick in Glassdoor’s data is generally a good sign for workers and evidence that today’s tight labor market may finally be translating into further base pay gains for U.S. workers into the remainder of 2018,” Sullivan concluded.

While Glassdoor’s report seems overly optimistic about overall wage growth, here is a sobering reminder that real wages have barely budged - despite President Trump’s claims of the “greatest economy ever.”

          Teenaged hero sparks school board investigation into faith-based 'sex ed' in district      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Abby McElroy, a 17-year-old rising senior at Strath Haven High School in the Philadelphia suburb of Wallingford, Pennsylvania, is also a rising activist (and why wouldn't she be, she's step-daughter to our own Adam Bonin). She rocked her district's school board last month when she informed them that a local faith-based crisis pregnancy center, Amnion Pregnancy Center, had been invited into her health class to "teach" a sex ed segment.

You can imagine what they were teaching: hand-holding, hugging, and kissing were all forms of touching that release the hormone oxytocin, and "that too much youthful activity depletes oxytocin and thus makes it harder for a person to eventually bond with a future spouse has been challenged by scientists, who say it’s based on research with prairie voles, not humans." The presentation was given with the prop of a poster—entitled "The Steep Slope of Arousal"—showing two stick figures, holding hands at the edge of the cliff, ready to topple "into the abyss and crash on the rocks of sexual activity." Another prop they like to use is sticky tape. McElroy says that teens were told "if you have sex with too many people it becomes less sticky—and you can't make healthy relationships." All this "science" apparently has something to do with a study of oxytocin in voles, the small rodents. The presenter also allegedly gave one of the students with questions a Bible.

The school board members, McElroy reports, "were horrified—none of them had any idea that this was going on." Marilyn Huff, Wallingford-Swarthmore school board president, said the district is investigating the class and also promised that "we will make changes,#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000" although the change is as of yet unspecified. No public funding, supposedly, went to Amnion for the class. The center is definitely faith-based, and definitely on the fringes of that faith. It "quotes the Bible on its website, accepts grant money from the socially conservative Christian Focus on the Family and has a stated goal of ending abortion in the Philadelphia suburbs." It is presenting this anti-sex, anti-health, anti-science bullshit in 25 schools in the area.

The controversy—created by McElroy's courage in standing up for her peers at the school board—highlights a larger problem in the state, which is that it has set no standards for comprehensive sex education. Charlatans like Amnion can be invited in, in this case by their health teacher, to spout their nonsense in the guise of education. When McElroy was exposed to it as a sophomore, she complained to the school principal, who told her that Amnion would not be invited back. When she found out that Amnion was back the next year, she decided she had to take larger action. Who knows, that action could conceivably end up in the state finally establishing real, science- and health-based sex education curriculum.

As it is, here's Amnion creating their future client base, because abstinence education is the most surefire way for young women to not know how not to get pregnant. They're ensuring they'll stay in business by keeping kids misinformed, and ensure that they'll continue to have pregnant young women to use in their fight against legal abortion. Just because they "teach" absolutely ridiculous nonsense doesn't mean they're stupid or they don't know exactly what they're doing.

All the kudos to Abby McElroy for doing something about it. You can watch her in action starting at about 20:20 in this video.

          Casting Announced For MAKE BELIEVE at Hartford Stage      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Hartford Stage Artistic Director Darko Tresnjak and Managing Director Michael Stotts today announced the cast and creative team for Make Believe, written by Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle award-winning playwright Bess Wohl. The world premiere play will perform Thursday, September 6, through Sunday, September 30, to open the Tony Award-winning regional theatre's 55th season. Jackson Gay will direct.

Bess Wohl's uncanny, gently funny and touching play, set in the 1980s, follows four young siblings as their childhood is upended by the mysterious problems of the adults in their lives and tracks how moments from our childhood resonate with us forever. The talented cast features four adult and four youth actors.

"I had the pleasure of meeting Bess Wohl and Jackson Gay two decades ago at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. Since then, Bess has evolved into one of our most innovative playwrights and Jackson one of our finest directors. It is a pleasure to be reacquainted with them and to welcome them to Hartford Stage for the world premiere of Make Believe," Tresnjak said.

"I couldn't be happier to be opening our season with Bess Wohl's Hartford Stage commission, Make Believe," Hartford Stage Associate Artistic Director Elizabeth Williamson said. "I've worked with Bess for almost a decade, beginning with premiering her plays Touch(ed) and In at Pioneer Theatre Company. As with all of Bess' work, Make Believe is surprising and funny, but it's also a serious play about childhood, performed by children. It's exciting, theatrical, and deeply moving. We're very grateful to the Toulmin Foundation for making this commission possible and delighted to have Jackson Gay on board to direct."

Wohl's most recent work, Small Mouth Sounds, was hailed as a critic's pick by The New York Times, New York Magazine, and Time Out New York. Wohl was also honored with the 2017 Outer Critics Circle's John Gassner Award for American plays by new playwrights for Small Mouth Sounds, which completed a national tour last April. She received the 2015 Drama Desk Sam Norkin Off-Broadway Award for establishing herself as an important voice in New York theatre. Wohl's other plays include American Hero, Barcelona (Ovation award nominee), and the original musical Pretty Filthy (2015 Lucille Lortel and Drama Desk nominations for Outstanding Musical). Wohl also writes for film and television. Her film, Irreplaceable You, premiered on Netflix last February. Wohl won an Athena Award for her original screenplay, Virginia; and In was included on the 2007 Hollywood Black List. Wohl has also developed film and television projects for HBO, ABC, USA, Disney and Paramount.

The company of Make Believe includes Megan Byrne (The Wolves, TheaterWorks; The Hatmaker's Wife, The Playwrights Realm) as Adult Kate; Chris Ghaffari (Romeo & Juliet, Hartford Stage; Sex with Strangers, Westport Country Playhouse) as Adult Chris; Brad Heberlee (Small Mouth Sounds, Ars Nova/Signature and Philadelphia Theatre Company; These Paper Bullets, Atlantic Theatre Company and Yale Repertory Theatre) as Adult Carl; Roman Malenda (History Mystery, TADA! Youth Theater; All My Sons, French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts) as Chris; Alexa Skye Swinton (Billions, Showtime; The Department Party, Playwrights Horizons) as Addie; RJ Vercellone (A Christmas Carol-A Ghost Story of Christmas, Hartford Stage; The Who's Tommy, Curtain Call) as Carl; Molly Ward (Othello, Hartford Stage; Bathsheba Dorin's Kin, Playwrights Horizons) as Adult Addie; and Sloane Wolfe (Annie, Paper Mill Playhouse; Samson-original cast, Sight & Sound Theatres) as Kate.

Director Jackson Gay's credits include Lucy Thurber's Transfers at MCC Theater; The Cake and the world premiere of Suzanne Vega's Lover, Beloved: An Evening with Carson McCullers, with music by Vega and Duncan Sheik, at The Alley Theatre; These Paper Bullets! - an adaptation of William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing by Rolin Jones with music by Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong - at Atlantic Theatre Company, The Geffen and Yale Repertory Theatre; and The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow at Atlantic Theatre Company and Yale Repertory Theatre. Gay is a founding member of the theatre-television-music company New Neighborhood. She is the Director of Artistic Programs for Fuller Road Artist Residency and has taught directing and acting at Columbia University, Yale University, Primary Stages' Marvin and Anne Einhorn School of Performing Arts (ESPA), Sarah Lawrence College and Fordham University.

In addition to Gay, the creative team is comprised of Set Designer Antje Ellermann (An Opening in Time, Hartford Stage; Stuffed, Women's Project Theater; The Broken Heart, Theatre for a New Audience); Costume Designer Jonghyun Georgia Lee (The Cake, PlayMakers Repertory Company; Caught, The Play Company; Sense and Sensibility, Guthrie Theater); Lighting Designer Paul Whitaker (Lover, Beloved: An Evening with Carson McCullers, Alley Theatre; These Paper Bullets, Geffen Playhouse and Atlantic Theatre Company; Rigoletto, Minnesota Opera); and Sound Designers Broken Chord Collective (A Midsummer Night's Dream, Hartford Stage; Eclipsed and The Parisian Woman, Broadway).

The National Endowment for the Arts awarded an Art Works grant to Hartford Stage in June 2017 to support the development and production of Make Believe. The theatre was also awarded one of the first grants from the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation to commission new theatrical works from women.

The development and production of new work at Hartford Stage is funded, in part, by grants from Burry Fredrik Foundation, The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust, and The Lucille Lortel Foundation.

          Westport Country Playhouse Presents Sunday Symposium with Cast of THE UNDERSTUDY      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Cast members from "The Understudy" will be guest speakers at Westport Country Playhouse's Sunday Symposium on August 19, following a 3 p.m. performance of the backstage comedy about a Hollywood action star making his Broadway debut amid tensions with his understudy. The recent Off-Broadway hit is written by Theresa Rebeck, creator of NBC's show business drama "Smash."

The cast of "The Understudy" includes Eric Bryant as Harry, Connecticut Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Actor in a Play for his role in Westport Country Playhouse's "The Invisible Hand"; Brett Dalton as Jake, who plays Agent Grant Ward on the ABC series, "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," for which he received a Teen Choice Award as Best Male Breakout Star; and Andrea Syglowski as Roxanne, award-winning actress for "Venus in Fur," and recipient of the Robin Williams Scholarship at The Juilliard School.

The Playhouse Sunday Symposium program is free and open to the public. "The Understudy" cast will engage in conversation about the comedy with David Kennedy, Playhouse associate artistic director and director of "The Understudy." Kennedy previously directed a production of "The Understudy" at the Wilma Theater in Philadelphia.

"The Understudy" is set in a Broadway theater where Roxanne is the stage manager. Charged with running the understudy rehearsal for the production, she finds her professional and personal life colliding when Harry, a journeyman actor and her ex-fiancé, is cast as the understudy to Jake, a mid-tier action-hero yearning for legitimacy. The comedy is a humanistic look at people trying to do what they love in the face of obstacles.

The Sunday Symposium Series is supported, in part, by the White Barn Program of the Lucille Lortel Foundation.

"The Understudy" Production Sponsor is the Eunice and David Bigelow Foundation. Corporate Production Partner is BNY Mellon.

Yes, six goals in one game (and a road game at that, still the only such road effort in NHL history). In the last 70 years, only Berenson and the Leafs' Darryl Sittler have scored 6 goals in one game. Oh, and Red also has a Stanley Cup on his resume, in 1965 with Montreal.

          PA-Gov: Koch Brothers Make A Late Entrance Into The Pennsylvania Governor's Race      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Koch Brothers are passing on trying to unseat U.S. Senator Bob Casey, Jr. (D. PA) but they are now making a late entrance into the Pennsylvania Governor’s race:

In its first major move in support of a candidate in Pennsylvania this cycle, the Koch-backed Americans for Prosperity announced Thursday it will support Scott Wagner in his campaign to unseat Gov. Tom Wolf this November.

The self-proclaimed grassroots free-market advocacy group, deeply entrenched in conservative politics, will canvass, make phone calls and run paid advertisements backing the Republican nominee and state senator, while highlighting Mr. Wolf's "failed policy record" as a Democratic incumbent governor, according to a release.

In a statement, Beth Anne Mumford, the group's Pennsylvania director, said Mr. Wagner's record "reflects strong leadership on causes our activists champion.” The Republican has based much of his campaign on making Pennsylvania more friendly to businesses, while Americans for Prosperity fights for lowering taxes and restraining the influence government has over the economy — ideas, Ms. Mumford said, that Mr. Wolf has failed to abide by in his first term as governor.

"Wolf’s lack of leadership has instead left the Commonwealth with a legacy of bigger government, higher taxes, and runaway spending that consistently stifles economic dynamism and prioritizes Harrisburg’s interests over those of everyday Pennsylvanians," Ms. Mumford said.

Of course, Governor Tom Wolf (D. PA) wasted no time hitting Wagner on this:

"These big oil and gas barons are trying to buy the election for Scott Wagner so he can continue to give handouts to billionaires like the Kochs by blocking a severance tax and refusing to make big corporations pay their fair share," campaign spokeswoman Beth Melena said.

With three field offices in the state and half a dozen paid staffers, Americans for Prosperity hopes to replicate the success it had in 2016 when it spent more than $1 million helping defeat Pennsylvania Democratic Senate nominee Katie McGinty, who lost to incumbent Republican Pat Toomey in what ended up being the most expensive Senate race in the country. During that effort, volunteers knocked on more than 135,000 doors and made 2.4 million phone calls.

The group did not signal how much it would spend in support of Wagner, but with 13 weeks left until the election, but it said dozens of volunteers will deploy from AFP offices in the Erie, Harrisburg and Philadelphia areas to canvass for him.

Wagner "is pleased to have the support of an organization committed to promoting business friendly policies and fostering economic growth," campaign spokesman Andrew Romeo said Thursday. He said Wolf "is bought and paid for by the public sector unions," which kill reforms.

A co-sign from Americans for Prosperity could send a jolt of energy into Wagner's fundraising, which has lacked the support of some key establishment Republicans in Pennsylvania. As of June 4, Wagner had $1.6 million on hand, trailing the incumbent by a factor of nearly 10-1.

Wagner badly needs the financial backing, especially since Wolf has already hit the airwaves ripping Wagner a new one:

Wolf’s ad entitled, “Book”, is a direct response to Wagner’s ad attacking Wolf’s education plan named “drastic”.

“Governor restored the education cuts, reduced standardizing testing, and increased skills and apprenticeship training,” the ad claims after criticizing Wagner’s plan.

Governor Wolf has always been a strong advocate for public education, which is why he has fully restored the Harrisburg Republicans’ one billion dollar cut from education, the majority of which came from rural and small-town schools,” said Beth Melena, Gov. Wolf’s campaign communications director. “Governor Wolf will continue to fight to increase funding for all schools throughout Pennsylvania.”

The Wolf campaign also released an additional attack ad this week highlighting Wagner’s view on senior citizens. The ad claims Wagner has called them the “greediest generation ever”.

“He wants to change the law and tax senior retirement income for the first time in Pennsylvania history,” the ad states about Wagner.

“Scott Wagner wants to roll back Pennsylvania’s Medicaid expansion which would result in seniors not being able to afford their nursing home care,” said Melena. “Wagner was also the only senator in the Pennsylvania Senate not to vote to reduce seniors’ prescription drug costs. Scott Wagner would be dangerous for Pennsylvania’s seniors.”

The Wolf campaign boasted about his efforts to keep seniors in their homes, stabilize the lottery fund and boosting Medicare Advantage.

Plus, this just proves that Wagner truly is in the pocket of the fossil fuel industry:

x

At a town-hall meeting earlier this month, an 18-year-old environmental activist and student at the University of California was called "young and naive" by Republican candidate for governor Scott Wagner after the activist, Rose Strauss, asked Wagner about his views on climate change.

"My name is Rose, I'm 18, and I'm really concerned about the future of our country," she says at the mic. "Two-thirds of Pennsylvanians think climate change is an issue that needs to be addressed, and you've said that climate change is a result of people's body heat and are refusing to take action on the issue."

She goes on: "Does this have anything to do with the $200,000 you have taken from the fossil fuel industry?"

To which Wagner responds, "You're 18 years old. You know, you're a little young and naive."

Let’s make sure Wolf and his fellow Pennsylvania Democrats are ready to win. Click below to donate and get involved with Wolf and his fellow PA Democrats’ campaigns:

          Apple Picks Up New Video Game Comedy From Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Apple gave a straight to series order for a half-hour scripted comedy show created by Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day, reports Variety. The show is said to be set in a video game development studio.

McElhenney and Day will write and executive produce the series, and McElhenney is set to be one of the show's stars.

Apple has inked deals for more than a dozen TV shows, including several other comedy shows. A "You Think It, I'll Say It" TV show based on Curtis Sittenfield's short story collection is in development, as is "Central Park," an animated series developed by Loren Bouchard.

A full list of all of the TV shows that Apple has in development is available in the Original Content section of our Apple TV roundup.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

TRAINER'S ROOM

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

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

UP NEXT

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

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