On Wednesday, retrofuturist-disco and R&B outfit Chanti Darling had an album release show that gave me the workout I've been needing. After an enchanting performance from Gold Casio, the Doug Fir’s air-conditioned underground venue had soon turned into a sweaty basement party. And that’s even before the island-themed stage décor was cleared to make room for Chanti Darling and his pair of back-up dancers, the Two-Steps.

Backed by producer Damon Boucher and a couple background singers, frontman Chanticleer Trü took the stage in an all-black getup and neon green shutter shades. After playing a couple songs I’m less familiar with, Chanti moved through energizing renditions of tracks from his new album RNB Vol. 1, like “Wake Up the Night,” “Boogie.503,” “Grab Onto Me,” and “Who’s Cruising Who.”

Even during those rare moments in the setlist when it was time to take it easy, the audience was still locked in. I liked when he sang sensual slow jams like “Pillow Talk,” and “Casual,” which features a verse from the Last Artful, Dodgr. While I had high hopes that Dodgr would grace us with her presence, at the release show Chanti expertly performed Dodgr’s part in her absence. I was in for a different surprise, however.

For the track “Running,” which normally features Portland singer/producer Natasha Kmeto, former Chanti Darling dancer-turned rapper Maarquii took the stage as a special guest. The crowd went wild when Maarquii served up a rap verse along with some sickening voguing. Their onstage musical interaction is something I had been waiting to see ever since Maarquii stopped being one of Chanti Darling’s dancers; I can't wait for their next proper collab.

As is always the case with Chanti Darling's shows, the crowd was into it. I can’t remember the last time I heard so many concertgoers shouting “yas!” “aye!” “okay!” and “get it!”

I was also happy to discover that I’ve become increasingly familiar with the group’s contagious groove- and hook-based choreography—enough so that I’ve been practicing some version of it at home, now that I can’t get the bass line to “Grab Onto Me” out of my head.

Chanti Darling has created a live music experience that’s become one of Portland’s biggest local outlets for joyful movement and pure, unadulterated fun. And as of August 3, fans are finally able to relive the memories from last night with the easefulness of a Spotify stream.


          How Will E-Scooters Benefit Low-Income Communities?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by Alex Zielinski

IMG_8475.JPG
K Marie

Portland Bureau of Transportation's (PBOT) permitting process for e-scooters came with a equity-focused requirement: all companies must place a certain number of scooters east of 82nd Ave, in Far NE Portland, and in the Cully Neighborhood (called the "East Neighborhoods Pattern Area").

The idea is to see if e-scooters will actually be of service to people living outside of the wealthier and whiter bubble that envelops inner Portland neighborhoods. PBOT will seriously consider this data when the city's 120-day pilot draws to a close—and the city considers issuing long-term permits to these companies. PBOT spokseperson Dylan Rivera is particularly interested if e-scooters will make public transportation a little more accessible to those who don't usually ride.

"Maybe it will make it easier to reach a light rail stop on I-205... who knows," Rivera says. "It's probably more profitable for companies to concentrate their scooters downtown, but we want to see how it works across the city."

Another way to measure e-scooter equity is through the application process. In the form companies must fill out to request a city e-scooter permit, PBOT asks how a company will work to engage "low-income and historically underserved communities." Here are the official questions:

Screen_Shot_2018-08-09_at_12.47.23_PM.png

The Mercury requested copies of the PBOT applications for all three e-scooter companies—Skip, Bird, and Lime—to see what they may have in store. Here's what we learned:

Skip

Skip pointed to two examples of how low-income people can benefit from the company: Free scooter rides for people who charge the contraption at their house (we have no idea how much that will impact an electric bill, however) and rewarding houseless Portlanders who return scooters to charging centers with money and/or a hot meal.

Skip also suggested a fee-reduction program for low-income people. " We envision residents qualifying through... SNAP/“Oregon Trail Card”, Oregon Health Plan, Oregon Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program and Oregon LifeLine," the application reads.

According to its application, Skip staff have already met with East Portland neighbors to talk about investing in better transportation infrastructure (bike lanes, sidewalks, etc.) to make e-scooter riding more of a reality. Skip has also placed their East Portland scooters in areas close to bus stops to inspire multi-modal trips.

Lime

Lime's answers are a little more vague than Skip's. In its application, Lime says that "in other cities" the company has hired veterans, formerly incarcerated people, and "people from disadvantaged communities." They plan to do the same in Portland. Lime says it has already been meeting with people at Self Enhancement, Inc. (SEI) about job opportunities.

Lime does not offer discounted pricing for people with low incomes. But, according to Lime, scooters are already affordable. "Our vehicles are typically considerably cheaper than operating one’s own car or other alternatives; we seek every opportunity to demonstrate this to all communities - especially low income and historically underserved communities."

Bird

Bird's application was sent to us with a lot of pages redacted. Either those redacted items include its equity plan—or the company didn't suggest one. We'll update this post as we get more information about the company.

John Nichols at The Nation writes—A Huge Win for Organized Labor in Missouri:

Americans want strong unions. That’s the message from polling that shows more than 60 percent of voters nationwide approve of organized labor. And that’s certainly the message from Missouri, where voters on Tuesday overturned the state’s so-called “right-to-work” law by an overwhelming margin. [...]

In a state where Republicans have won the last five presidential elections and where the GOP now controls the executive and legislative branches of state government, 65 percent of the Missourians who cast ballots on Tuesday voted to scrap the “right-to-work” measure that was enacted just months after a corporate-aligned Republican grabbed the governorship from the Democrats in 2016.

“The defeat of this poisonous anti-worker legislation is a victory for all workers across the country,” declared AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka as the results came in Tuesday night. “The message sent by every single person who worked to defeat Prop. A is clear: When we see an opportunity to use our political voice to give workers a more level playing field, we will seize it with overwhelming passion and determination.

          Walton, with Surgically Rebuilt Foot, Attends Stanford Law      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   



February 4, 1983
He's 30 years old now, plays for the San Diego Clippers, wears goggles and has a "new" left foot.

Other than that, Bill Walton, all 6-foot-11 of him, is virtually the same dominating center he was when he led the Portland Trail Blazers to the NBA championship six seasons ago. He is averaging 13.8 points, 10.1 rebounds and 3.3 assists, and shooting 50 percent while averaging 34 minutes a game. He is second in the league with 3.7 blocked shots a game. 

Walton had played only 14 games in the four seasons before this one because of repeated stress fractures in the tarsal navicular bone. Going into tonight's game with the Bullets at Capital Centre at 8:05, he has already appeared in 21 games this season.

The desire to play was always there. "I just couldn't do it before now," said Walton.

He had his left foot surgically rebuilt two summers ago and started playing casually after that. Now, with Walton playing again, the Clippers are starting to look like they can compete with any team in the league.

"Any team that has Bill Walton is going to be a good team," said Bullets Coach Gene Shue. "He makes a world of difference."

When the season began, Walton seldom practiced with the team and played one game a week while attending Stanford Law School. On Jan. 20, he was given the go-ahead to increase his playing time. His only stipulation now is that he can't play on consecutive nights.

Walton, who has completed three semesters at Stanford, is on a leave of absence, with no timetable for re-enrolling.

His physical condition will be re-evaluated March 1. If he keeps progressing, all limitations will be lifted.

San Diego played Detroit last night, but because he had played against Boston Wednesday,Walton sat out the game. He is scheduled to start against the Bullets.

"Whenever he plays, it's like adding three or four dimensions to our club," said guard Al Wood.

The young Clippers, with one of the biggest front lines in the National Basketball Association--6-10 rookie Terry Cummings and 6-11 Tom Chambers, plus Walton--pose problems for many teams.

The Bullets, with their new small lineup that includes 6-7 Greg Ballard and Charles Davis at forwards, could be overmatched.

The Clippers were 4-23 before Christmas, but have gone 10-10 since. Cummings, an early-season holdout, has emerged as probably the top rookie in the league. He is averaging 22.7 points and 10.2 rebounds, and twice has been NBA rookie of the month.

The Bullets were still smarting yesterday from Wednesday's two-point loss to Kansas City, in which they lost a 23-point lead in the final 13 minutes . . . Shue and the players said they liked the new lineup. "It puts pressure on us to rebound better, but we have more movement and we get out quickly when we do get the rebounds," said Ballard. "It's a running lineup and I think it'll work," said Ricky Sobers . . . Dave Batton, sent home at halftime with flu Wednesday, didn't practice yesterday.

http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

Quote: "Intermountain Gas has received more than 100 calls reporting a gas odor in and around Kuna, according to the Kuna Fire Department. The cause of the odor has not been determined yet. The Kuna Fire Department first received reports of the gas odor at 6 a.m. Monday. Intermountain Gas investigated and found there were no breaches or leaks in their system. By 1 p.m. Monday, the smell had gone away, but reports started again around 3 a.m. Tuesday and lasted until 11 a.m."

Quote: "Intermountain Gas technicians have responded to roughly 100 calls about a natural gas-like odor."

Quote: "In a statement issued Wednesday afternoon, The L & R Group said results from a third-party tester to determine if its facility is the source of the smell have been inconclusive. The company also said: 'While our facility does produce odors under certain conditions, we have never had any complaints of smell outside a two-mile radius of our facility. Based on historical information it is unlikely that the smell at our facility is traveling as much as twenty miles, as reported by some.'"

Note: So some people wanna blame a wastewater pond, but independent testing has been unable to verify that, and the company who owns the pond thinks that it's unlikely any odor from their pond could travel 20 miles. So, back to rotten egg odor from unknown source...

http://www.earth.com/news/climate-change-forests-methane/

Quote: "Trees, plants and soil play a vital role in absorbing and preventing many of the greenhouse gases responsible for global warming from entering the earth's atmosphere. But a new paper from researchers at the Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York finds that the existing effects of global warming are decreasing the soil's ability to absorb methane gas--one of the major drivers of global temperature increases--and creating a positive feedback loop between the effects of global warming and the variables that cause it."

Note: And there's yet another self-reinforcing feedback. As the world warms, the plants, trees and soil absorb less methane, so more methane accumulates in the atmosphere, which causes more warming, which causes less methane to be absorbed AND causes more methane to be released, which causes more methane to accumulate in the atmosphere, etc, etc. This is only one of the degrading methane sinks. Another big methane sink involves hydroxyl radicals in the atmosphere, and the amount of hydroxyl radicals in the atmosphere is also in decline...

          Police Ask Protesters to Leave City Hall Sidewalk After Assault      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

Portland police have asked protesters to leave the sidewalk in front of City Hall after someone was hit in the face with a pole.

Here's the connection: According to Portland Police Bureau (PPB), a man got into an argument with a male protester this afternoon because the protest group (self-identified as Occupy ICE PDX 2) was occupying too much space on the sidewalk. When the man left and walked to his truck parked nearby, the protester allegedly hit him in the face with a pole. He was taken to the hospital with a head wound.

PPB officers identified the suspect as 33-year-old William Pierce, and arrested him on second-degree assault charges. Not long after, officers gave the remaining protesters a warning for "improper sidewalk use," and asked them to leave.

Protesters have been camped out in front of Portland City Hall since Sunday, August 5, and have already had a number of tense interactions with police and city hall's security guards. It appears that, on the heels of Saturday's violent alt-right protest, the original focus of the Occupy ICE protest has shifted from immigration to police brutality. Yesterday, two people were arrested inside city hall for refusing to leave the building after protesting during a city council meeting. It's unknown if the two arrested were associated with the sidewalk group.

Black-clad activists stormed Portland City Hall on Wednesday to protest the city's crowd control techniques used by police during last Saturday's counter-protest of a conservative march. The group assaulted one security guard with a megaphone and scuffled with several others, reports Oregon Live

Some of those who say they were injured by officers dressed in military gear and wielding batons or non-lethal munitions were on scene Wednesday, trying to speak with city officials.

One demonstrator, who was masked and wearing a baseball helmet, smashed a security guard over the head repeatedly with a megaphone. The guard was seen afterward clutching a bag of ice, a bruise beginning to form on his cheek. -Oregon Live

City Hall chief of security, Dorothy Elmore, reports being struck in the arm by a protester, while an unidentified bandana-clad man who was found sprawled on the floor outside the mayor's office was arrested and carried out by his arms and legs. Also arrested was 67-year-old Diane Keeauve, according to Portland police spokesman Sgt. Chris Burley. 

Each of the protesters face second-degree trespassing charges, said Burley. 

The demonstration started on a less rowdy note. A few dozen protesters converged near City Hall's east portico beginning around 9:30 a.m. to rail against police brutality after riot cops injured multiple people at Saturday's downtown protests.

Among them were those who say they were physically harmed by officers as police attempted to clear the rally against the right-wing group Patriot Prayer. -Oregon Live

"I should be home recovering from the pain and trauma I'm suffering. But I'm also suffering from complete outrage and powerlessness," said Michelle Fawcett, who lives in Portland.

The 52-year-old Fawcett sustained third-degree chemical burns after being struck by a flash-bang grenade fired by police. 

civil disturbance was declared at Saturday's march, after police say Antifa counter-protesters threw projectiles at them. 

Portland police chief Danielle Outlaw said on Monday that the bureau had temporarily suspended the use of flash-bang grenades, which they refer to as "aerial distraction devices," until they determine of they are working correctly after at least three people were hospitalized Saturday according to the activists. 

Leo Lacroix said he was injured when a non-lethal projectile fired by police grazed his head. He showed a reporter photos of his bloodied forehead and a scab from the small wound.

"I'd like to know why I was shot in the head by the cops," said Lacroix, 28. -Oregon Live

The Portland city council meeting began on Wednesday with little disruption, however after a man was escorted out of the building for swearing at council members, people in the audience broke into chants of "end police brutality," which mayor Ted Wheeler admonished them for. When they would not stop, he called a recess to the session and reconvened with city commissioners in a conference room outside of his office - where the meeting was conducted despite muffled chants of "shame on you" from protesters outside. 

Commissioner carried on through their agenda despite muffled chants of "shame on you" from protesters outside.

"What's happening downstairs?" Commissioner Amanda Fritz asked during a break between hearings.

"Well, there's actually a gentleman laying on the floor right outside," replied Matt Grumm, chief of staff to Commissioner Dan Saltzman.

Grumm turned to Commissioner Nick Fish: "Jumped on an e-scooter yet?"

Fish replied that he had not, but that they "seem to be everywhere."

Though the meeting went on in ho-hum fashion, with discussions of property liens, eminent domain and parks bonds, the atmosphere outside was anything but. -Oregon Live

At that point, the protesters broke in and began assaulting city employees, only to stop after they were threatened with arrest.

@Edward - But are they as on-fleek as Portland's Chief of Police? The police confiscated weapons from the right wing with Confederate flag and other racist markings on them, so she made a public statement that maybe they had been planted by the left wing to make the right wing look bad.

The same weapons were featured in the right-wingers' social media updates, before confiscation. I guess the Chief didn't investigate that.

And, lest we forget, a few months ago a Patriot Prayer supporter tried to pull a Charlottesville in Portland by driving his truck at counter-protesters, with a Confederate flag flying behind it. I guess the Chief forgot all about that.

          How Tom’s of Maine’s founder created a fast-fashion alternative      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

When Tom Chappell, the founder of Tom’s of Maine, one of the first commercially successful brands of natural toothpaste, finalized the deal to sell his company to Colgate for $100 million in the spring of 2006, he decided to take some time off to explore Wales on foot with one of his sons. They hiked eight to ten hours per day, going from farmhouse to farmhouse.

On his trek, Chappell says, “I was quite taken by the reality of this first layer stuff, whether it was long johns or undershirts that you would wear. I had the [Patagonia’s] Capilenes and I had the silk, and I had the wool. I didn’t like any of them. The Capilenes smelled terribly after two or three days, and you couldn’t wash out the stink, the wool was itchy and scratchy, and the silk would get soaked with sweat, and then you’d freeze to death because the silk isn’t any kind of an insulator.”

Being a keen problem solver and an entrepreneur at heart, Chappell starting thinking about creating clothing from a lightweight fiber that would not only be comfortable on your skin but would insulate your body. While he had found wool to be itchy and scratchy, he also decided it was a miracle fiber: It cools you off when you need it to, it retains heat when it’s cold out, and it doesn’t hold stink. The trick would be to remove the itch.

Thus began his new venture, Ramblers Way, a purpose-driven American-made premium clothing line derived from natural wool. He says his vision was to create a “functional clothing line that would be versatile in different settings” from the office to weekend and activewear. The products would be made in America using the same sustainable business practices that had been used so effectively at Tom’s of Maine.

Geeking out on wool

After the success of Tom’s of Maine, Chappell says he entered his new business with wind in his sails: “I thought I knew it all when I left Tom’s of Maine.” But he soon discovered that he had a lot to learn. For starters, launching a clothing line focused on sustainability in an industry known for its wasteful emissions was not going to be an easy task. “And I did not appreciate the necessity for such precision and detail when it comes to making a fabric or a garment,” he adds. It turned out that not all wool is created equal.

Chappell visited ranches in Texas, Montana, and Nevada in his search for the finest wool fibers, which he would need to produce the soft, lightweight, non-itching material for his clothing line. Most commercial wool was too thick and not up to the task; he needed wool from Rambouillet sheep, which has long and thin fibers. But he soon discovered that these fibers were often simply blended in with inferior wool to create a “wool blend” that gets exported to China, where it’s used to produce much of the world’s clothing.

He knew he would have to convince farmers and ranchers to do things differently. It helped that he had more than three decades of experience at Tom’s of Maine doing exactly this. First, he had to pay them a premium to separate the fine fibers from the rest of the wool. He also promised that the garments would be made in the United States. He says, “They got very excited . . . that their wool was going into an American brand, and patriotic about it. . . . We just went from one large ranch to another to get the supply.”

The product is the most important thing

Once they had sourced the Rambouillet fibers, they had to figure out how they could be washed, spun, and knit without the use of chemicals, using machines that could tolerate such fine wool. Once again, this required convincing spinners and knitters that it could be done. Chappell decided to take hand-spinning classes to better understand the process. Once he had learned to spin yarn, he knew what he was looking for, and was able to find a certified organic yarn spinner, a weaver, and a machine that could knit fine-wool clothing.

The process he used to assemble his supply chain is the opposite of how fast-fashion manufacturers operate. Instead of starting with an artificially low price and building a supply chain to accommodate it, Chappell decided that the product was the most important thing. Also, in contrast with an industry that has a reputation for treating its workers poorly, at Ramblers Way employees are paid a minimum wage of $15 per hour, plus benefits and a 401K, and they have a chance to give back to society through 5% paid time off to volunteer.  The company regularly visits the ranches and factories where their products are made. And the GOTS certification on their products ensures that farms and companies in their supply chain treat employees with dignity and respect.

Chappell says it has taken him nearly seven years to build the supply chain, which is predicated on being sustainable while sourcing the highest-quality ingredients. “If you start with your values and the quality rather than the price, they precede everything you do. You will likely end up creating a product that did not exist before. What I wanted to do is to show that, like at Tom’s [of Maine], you don’t have to sacrifice efficacy in order to be responsible with regard to people and nature,” Chappell says.

Today he is proud to be the only fully organic wool-clothing company in America. Be it sweaters, liners, or jackets, the finished products are all 100% organic, made without the use of any chemical or dyes–and much of the work is done within 300 miles of Kennebunk, Maine.

This has the added benefit of enabling Ramblers Way to also be certified as “cradle-to-cradle.” This is a designation that implies that the product was designed with its end of life in mind. “Staying 100% biological, that means that fabric will decompose in six months in the environment, if it gets thrown away,” says Chappell.

Getting wool to the people

In 2015, Ramblers Way clothes went on the market, but wholesaling to independent clothing stores proved another challenge. “It was just a complete shocker to me. I didn’t realize that they did not want to take the time to educate the consumer on sustainable clothing, or wool,” Chappell admits. “We found that they [retailers] weren’t the evangelists [or partners] that strategically we thought they were going to be, and secondly, they didn’t pay their bills, and third, they shipped their product back if they didn’t sell them, even though we didn’t give it to them on those terms.”

Chappell had a national sales force pushing his products to these stores, but he had to admit that the strategy wasn’t working. “We were really going out of business.” This was very different from his experience with wholesaling his products at Tom’s of Maine, where he could focus entirely on creating the very best products and be profitable because the growth rate of the natural-health industry was in the double digits, which created a lot of demand. Relying on established retail chains to sell products for you was not a smart strategy in a highly competitive industry like apparel.

In the face of these challenges, Chappell made another unconventional decision. In the age of e-commerce and Amazon, he decided to venture into retailing himself, opening with, as he puts it,  “a test store,” first in Dartmouth, New Hampshire, and then in Portland, Maine. Here “you could finally see the entire range of products made by Ramblers Way. It was stunning, it was a delightful environment.”

[Photo: courtesy Ramblers Way]

Growing Pains

Tom Chappell has built off this success and expanded the company’s direct-to-consumer model,  decreasing prices by 33%. It has been a win the company badly needed. “We increased our gross margins to over 55%. All we were doing is eliminating the independent retailer, and doing it ourselves.”

Ramblers Way now has plans in place to open its next set of stores in New York, Boston, and Connecticut–all strong urban environments where Chappell hopes his clean and sustainable products will resonate. “We were starting to communicate, and educate, and create a reason for these customers to come and learn, and be excited about the quality. Once they would put it in their hand, and feel the softness, and the lightness. It was all of a sudden, a $90 shirt was worth it.”

[Photo: courtesy Ramblers Way]

Raising the sustainability bar

The arc of Tom Chappell’s career has involved taking risks to create new products that have raised the bar for sustainability in two very different industries. As an entrepreneur, you could say he uses human-centered design, immersing himself with his suppliers in every aspect of developing his products, be it toothpaste made using fennel as the cleansing agent or various techniques for producing wool fibers until the yarn is as fine and as sustainable as he would like it to be.

Chappell says his biggest challenge these days is getting capital to expand their retail stores. The company has had the most success with appealing to family offices to come in as lead investors, in large part because they know him from his days running Tom’s of Maine. He adds, “unlike tech or health care, there isn’t any risk money for sustainability.”

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Admitted Racist Randy Blazak. Mr. Blazak is part of the Department of Sociology at Portland State College. His research areas include: juvenile delinquency, hate crimes, masculinity, racism, prisons, and constructions of whiteness. He's currently investigating the transitioning of white supremacist inmates back into the community after their release from incarceration. He recently published a blog post titled, "How B.B. King got me to stop being a racist." Blazak discusses being raised in the birthplace of the modern Klu Klux Klan - Stone Mountain, Georgia; he "grew up in a racist family, in a racist town, in a racist state, in a racist country." He alleges to being trained to fear black people, but artistic geniuses like B.B. King and Nina Simone helped him value black lives and acknowledge his own Racism.

We'll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people. We'll examine news reports from the past seven days and - hopefully - promote a constructive dialog. #ANTIBLACKNESS Dr. Frances Cress Welsing was one of the few people on the planet to correctly predict the conclusion of the 2016 United States presidential election. President-Elect Donald Trump trounced Hillary R. Clinton in one of the most unanticipated upsets in political history. As shock made room for acceptance, a few things were abundantly clear. White Women are the one demographic to deliver an unanticipated bounty to Trump's campaign. According to numerous reports, more then 50% of White Women supported Trump, evidencing that the ceaseless prattle about Trump's misogyny and "toxic masculinity" didn't discourage most White Women from prioritizing their racial interest. This election was also a stinging reminder of the dishonesty of White Women and White Men. Countless individuals classified as White renounced and upbraided Trump for months. Logic dictates that a sizable portion of Whitefolks publicly excoriated Trump, but cast a ballot for him behind closed doors. Whites of the Occupy Wall Street ilk have been marching and looting in numerous cities from Chicago, Illinois to Portland, Oregon. A number of brazen Trump supporters have basked in their electoral euphoria by terrorizing random black children. #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

Antifa rioters invaded Portland City Hall just recently today injuring and attacking innocent people and officials. Arrests were made. This comes after violent riots where blood spilled into the streets and police had to respond with force to end the civil disturbance. The Willamette Week, a news organization owned by the Democrat Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum’s Backpage.com-affiliated husband, made the civil disturbance out to be that the Portland Police Chief and her team violently attacked the innocent poor Antifa rioters, when in fact it was Antifa that was doing the violence and spilling the blood.

          Así crea refranes un ordenador: "Cuando la muerte venga no tendrá ovejas"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Ronda de refranes. Pensemos en tres de esas frases solemnes que llevan entre nosotros siglos: un buen yunque no es el que más ruido hace; cría cuervos y te sacarán los ojos; no por mucho madrugar amanece más temprano. Pues bien, uno de estos refranes no proviene de la tradición española.

Si las máquinas son capaces de reconocer caras o de 'escribir' poemas, ¿por qué no un refrán que suene a verdad de generaciones pasadas? Janelle Shane es una investigadora y creativa estadounidense conocida por sus trabajos con redes neuronales. Lo hace siempre con un toque de humor y extravagancia. Por ejemplo, creó un robot que ideaba frases para cortejar a alguien, con resultado estrambótico, como "si me dieran una rosa cada vez que pienso en ti, tengo un precio ajustado" o "tengo que darte un libro, porque eres la única cosa en tus ojos". También ha creado disfraces para Halloween o nombres de colores: verde azúcar, rosa fastidioso…

Incluso, sus redes neuronales se han atrevido a crear nombres de grupos de heavy metal, como Arena Inhumana, que según la inteligencia artificial haría death metal melódico desde Rusia, o Cielo Clónico Negro, cuyo black metal nos llegaría desde Grecia. "Una de las cosas que me gustan del machine learning es lo impredecible que puede ser. Puedes sorprenderte por resultados que el ordenador se inventa y no sabes en absoluto cómo lo hace, pero de alguna manera son mejores o diferentes a lo que una inteligencia humana pudiera haber inventado", cuenta Shane a HojadeRouter.com.

Así son los refranes de una máquina

Sin embargo, nada tan divertido como los proverbios. En esta ocasión, recibió la ayuda de Anthony Mandelli, un joven coleccionista de refranes clásicos que montó la base de datos con la que la inteligencia artificial, llamada char-rnn, dio a luz sus creaciones. En total, 2000 dichos en inglés. El resultado fueron secuencias de palabras que se pueden leer y entender (tienen su verbo, sus artículos determinantes, sus complementos…), pero sin sentido o significado, que los hablantes tenemos que dar ahora. 

El listado resultante suena a anciano, a algo que ha transmitido la tradición oral. El favorito de Shane es Death when it comes will have no sheep ("cuando la muerte venga no tendrá ovejas"). Pero hay muchos más: A good anvil does not make the most noise ("una buena excusa es tan buena como un descanso"), a good face is a letter to get out of the fire ("una buena cara es una carta para salir del fuego") o there is no smoke without the best sin ("no hay humo sin el mejor pecado"). Junto a ellos, a good anvil does not make the most noise ("un buen yunque no es el que más ruido hace")" o a good excuse is as good as a rest ("una buena excusa es tan buena como un descanso").

El buey (ox en inglés) y el zorro (fox) son dos animales que se repiten mucho en los refranes de Shane. La artista cree que, al ser común la secuencia -ox en los refranes de la base de datos, la máquina pudo entender que eran importantes para hacer combinaciones. Así, tenemos an ox is not fill when he will eat forever ("un buey no está lleno cuando comerá para siempre") o a fox smells it better than a fool’s for a day ("un zorro lo huele mejor que un tonto por un día").

Aunque cueste encontrar sentido a muchas combinaciones de palabras (¿valdría como refrán "un tonto en una taza de té es un silencio por una aguja en la venta"?), parece que la máquina entendió el armazón exterior que tienen muchos refranes, pues la mayoría cumplen una lógica de "si haces A, entonces B" o "la C es un/a D". "Se podría decir que la red entiende un poco la estructura de los refranes", explica Mandelli a HojadeRouter.com, que asegura además haber incluido en su vida diaria a good wine makes the best sermon ("un buen vino hace el mejor sermón"), an ox is never known till needed ("no conoces a un buey hasta que lo necesitas") y el ya citado "cuando la muerte venga no tendrá ovejas".

El del vino y los sermones lo usa cuando está tomando algo con amigos: "Nunca me preguntan por sus orígenes, ya que suena como un refrán legítimo y funciona por contexto cuando brindas antes de beber". El del buey le parece muy profundo: para él significa que "no sabemos qué es necesario para nuestras vidas hasta que se vuelve evidente que está faltando". Por eso es su favorito.

Mendelli no es es el único que trata de buscar significado a los refranes. Con Shane han contactado otras personas que les pretenden dar aplicaciones: "Quieren usarlos específicamente para escritura de ficción; para fantasía, en concreto", porque, según le dicen, necesitan algunos proverbios que suenen antiguos. Además, las frases ya decoran pósteres motivacionales paródicos, como si de citas célebres se tratara.

La inteligencia artificial chat-rnn ya había creado en el pasado recetas de cocina ("nada deliciosas", recuerda la investigadora). Incluso se atrevió a parir pokémones con la misma red que luego usaría para los refranes. Los resultados fueron un disparate (había una tortuga con una especie de lago o estaque en el caparazón y un pájaro con una bolsa de papel en la cabeza), pero seguro que alguno podría pertenecer al ya largo listado oficial de criaturas de Nintendo. Otras redes se han usado para escribir fan fiction de Harry Potter y diseñar nombres de cervezas.

Shane no descarta seguir trabajando en los refranes, mientras que Mandelli se formaba en inteligencia artificial y machine learning para acompañarla. Para él, el trabajo con redes neuronales contribuye a mejorar nuestro entendimiento de las posibilidades de los ordenadores para interpretar grandes cantidades de datos y realizar con ellos "tareas complejas". Ahora solo queda que los humanos demos significado a todos esos nuevos refranes.

          Suspect Arrested After Reported Assault Outside of City Hall (Photo)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
On Thursday, August 9, 2018, at 10:24 a.m., Central Precinct officers responded to Southwest 4th Avenue near Portland City Hall, located at 1221 Southwest 4th Avenue, on the report of an assault.

As officers responded to the area, the caller to 9-1-1 informed Bureau of Emergency Communication (BOEC) call-takers he had been struck in the face by a man with a pipe. The caller informed officers he was waiting for responding officers in his vehicle near the intersection of Southwest 4th Avenue and Southwest Madison Street.

When officers arrived near Southwest 4th Avenue and Southwest Madison Street they located a man with an injury to his face. Emergency medical personnel arrived and provided the man emergency medical aid and transported him by ambulance to an area hospital for treatment of what was believed to be a non-life-threatening injury.

During the investigation, officers learned the victim and a man got into a verbal argument regarding sidewalk accessibility in front of Portland City Hall near the protest group. The victim went to his truck, which was parked nearby and the argument continued. The victim went to leave and was stopped at a red light near Portland City Hall when the same man struck him in the face with a pole.

Based on initial information, officers believed the suspect was associated with a group protesting in front of Portland City Hall. A description of the suspect was provided to officers patrolling in Central Precinct. While in the area of Southwest 4th Avenue and West Burnside Street, an officer located a man that matched the suspect's description. The suspect was in possession of a pole that was believed to have been used in the assault.

The suspect, identified as 33-year-old William B. Pierce, was taken into custody without incident. Pierce was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on a charge of Assault in the Second Degree. The pole was seized as evidence.

In attempt to reduce the likelihood of future confrontations and to address sidewalk accessibility issues, officers contacted the group gathered on the west sidewalk of Southwest 4th Avenue near Portland City Hall and provided individuals a "Warning -- Improper Sidewalk Use" https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/article/693822 .

Officers also informed people that any items that were left would be collected by a contracted cleaning service. Items of obvious utility and value that are left behind would be collected, stored and available for pick-up for a period of 30 days. Anyone seeking to reclaim their property should contact Pacific Patrol Services at 503-595-3440.

Portland police, braced for possible violent clashes, manned barricades and metal detectors downtown Saturday as the right-wing group Patriot Prayer gathered for a rally amid boisterous counter-protesters in the third such face-off in two months.

The event also comes ahead of the one-year anniversary of the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last August that deteriorated into clashes between protesters and counter-protesters and left one person dead.

People on both sides swarmed the area wearing protective pads or vests, many also wearing masks or covering themselves with bandanas. Police kept the two groups separated by barricades and by a street in front of the waterfront park.

Police warned via Twitter that no one carrying a rifle, shotgun or other long-gun in Tom McCall park, site of the rally.

At one point, police said on bullhorns that they had observed some people among the counter-protesters carrying weapons, and ordered a section of the event area cleared.


Police also said that any item, such as a flag pole, or a homemade shield, that could be used as a weapon, will be confiscated.

"I continue to strongly reject the idea that violence or hate speech are legitimate means to a political end," Mayor Ted Wheeler said on the eve of the event, adding that he and the Portland police chief "have serious concerns about the potential for violence" at the events.

As groups began to gather, a Patriot Prayer leader who identified himself only as "Tiny" told a KATU-TV reporter that he was there to "stand up for freedom and our constitution."


Wearing a partial mask and a black t-shirt that read "Pinochet did nothing wrong," Tiny said he and other supporters were wearing protective gear against counter-protesters.

"Last time I showed up without these, I got smashed with a wooden stick," "We are going to gear up."

"Unarmed people have been attacked for standing up for a president they support, just for standing up for freedom," he said.

The march, planned for months, has been organized by Joey Gibson, leader of the Patriot Prayer group, and a long-shot Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in the state of Washington.

It comes five weeks after clashes between left and right on June 30 in which both sides, including masked anti-fascist groups, battled in downtown Portland, pummeling and striking each other. Police declared the event a riot and revoked rally permits.


A similar Patriot Prayer event on June 4 devolved into fistfights and assaults by both sides as police struggled to keep the groups apart.

As supporters jostled among the crowds and media at the park, Gibson took a mic at one point to rally the already boisterous crowd, saying, "We are going to make change. We just keep going."

He said the group was there to express their views as guaranteed by the constitution, not to fight.

Gibson said in a live video on Facebook earlier this week that he won’t stop bringing his followers to Portland until they can express their right-wing views without interference.

“I refuse to do what Portland wants me to do because what Portland wants me to do is to shut up and never show up again," he said. "So yeah, I refuse to do that, but I will not stop going in, and I will not stop pushing, and I will not stop marching until the people of Portland realize that and realize that their methods do not work,” he said.

Organizers say that while Patriot Prayer denies being a white supremacist group, it affiliates itself with known white supremacists, white nationalists and neo-Nazi gangs.

In addition, self-described anti-fascists – or “antifa” – have been organizing anonymously online to confront Patriot Prayer and an affiliated group, the Proud Boys, in the streets.

The Facebook page for Resist Patriot Prayer: Violent Alt-Right Bigots Off Our Streets," the group said it is willing to use physical force if necessary against "Joey and his Alt Right goons."

"History has shown that militant resistance is a necessary and important tool in the fight against fascism," the event page said. "We make no apologies for the use of force in keeping our communities safe from the scourge of right-wing violence. Make no mistake, these people are coming here with the intent to harm and threaten people."

Effie Baum, a spokesperson with Popular Mobilization, said her group was formed solely to mobilize counter-protesters for Saturday, OregonLive reports.

"One thing we all have in common is our opposition to white supremacy, transphobia and homophobia," said Baum said, according to OregonLive.

“Patriot Prayer is continuing to commit violence in our city, and their events are becoming more and more violent,” she said. “Leaving them a small group to attack in the streets is only going to allow them to perpetuate their violence.”

          The last train odyssey video      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
[VIDEO] From YouTuuba he posts the last leg of his "train odyssey" starting in Chicago to Los Angeles aboard Amtrak's Southwest Chief. Then he leaves Los Angeles to take the Coast Starlight train along the California coast to Portland, Oregon. Then he leaves Portland on the Empire Builder to return to Chicago.

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

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

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

          Comment on Study: Most Reject Trans-Dating by EngineerScotty      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Rod seems to be advancing the theory that "the Cultural Left™ is demanding that e.g. straight cis men (or cis lesbians) simply <em>must</em> go to bed on demand with M2F transgenders, including those that still have male parts, or else It Is Bigotry". Which is utter rubbish. Certainly there are some transpeople that think such things--here in Portlandia, the group most hostile to the trans community aren't conservatives but so-called "TERFs", radical feminists (mainly lesbians) who seemingly view M2F transgenders as a devious plot of the patriarchy, tryin' to get into their pants. And yes, some transwomen (who identify as lesbians and seek romantic encounters with women) do then go and frequent lesbian social spaces looking for (and in some cases, loudly demanding) dates. The so-called TERFs (many of whom consider that term offensive; I use it mainly as a term of identification), however, apparently didn't get the memo. I've long said, and I'll repeat it here. One is entitled to be as bigoted and particular as one likes in one's love life. Don't like transpeople (in whatever stage of transition), blacks, fatties, redheads, men with small penises, women with small breasts, or guys with excessive body hair--you can say no. It's your right, and as we often tell our children, nobody can pressure you into sex. And this, as far as I can tell, is the belief of most liberals I know. The Civil Rights Act simply doesn't apply in the bedroom. Romance can be hard for transpeople even when they have fully transitioned, and have somewhat-functioning genitals that match their gender identity. But this is one area where there is no reasonable accommodation.

          Scouting Scratch: Durbin Feltman      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Right-handed pitcher Durbin Feltman was the Red Sox third-round pick in the 2018 draft after a successful college career as the closer for Texas Christian University. Feltman signed quickly for the full slot value of $559,000, and with injuries to the two players the club selected ahead of him, Triston Casas and Nick Decker, Feltman has had a chance to really stand out in his pro debut.

Feltman has already advanced to Salem after making brief stops in Lowell and Greenville. With Lowell, he threw four innings, allowing no baserunners while striking out seven. With Greenville, he threw seven innings, allowing six hits, a walk, and a pair of runs while striking out 14. With Salem he has made two appearances thus far, striking out two, allowing one hit and walking two over two innings. He’s the first Red Sox draftee since Craig Hansen to advance past Greenville in their draft year and has established himself as the top pure relief prospect in the Red Sox system.

Feltman is an undersized right-hander with a filled-out frame. Listed at 5-foot-11, 190 pounds, he doesn’t have your prototypical pitcher’s build, but in a relief role, his lack of size isn’t much of a concern. Feltman’s delivery also screams relief-only, as it is maximum-effort with a lightning-quick arm. Feltman starts on the third base side of the rubber and throws directly over the top. He doesn’t use a wind-up and has a quick, jerky delivery during which he hides the ball well before exploding towards the plate. This deception makes him tough to pick up and allows his fastball to play up even more, as it seemingly jumps on hitters.

Feltman’s fastball velocity has been down a tick from where it was in college, but that is to be expected given his time off after the draft and drastic increase in his workload after throwing no more than 34 2/3 innings in a season in college. In a recent look in his final appearance with Lowell, Feltman sat 94-96 mph with every pitch he threw. In college, Feltman reportedly touched 99 mph, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see that velocity come back next year after a full off-season in a professional strength and conditioning program. In addition to plus-plus velocity, Feltman’s fastball also shows plus life and he has above-average control of the pitch already. His command is still developing, but he has flashed the ability to locate the pitch both on the corners and up and down in the strike zone. Even with developing command, he’ll be able to succeed, especially against low minors hitters even when he misses location, as his stuff will overwhelm them. Feltman’s fastball projects as a plus-plus pitch, capable of missing bats at the highest level even as soon as next year.

Feltman’s primary secondary pitch is his slider, which also projects as at least a plus pitch. The pitch is a true power breaking ball, thrown at 84-86 mph with hard, late break. The pitch shows depth and he has advanced feel for it, capable of throwing it in the zone or burying it down and out of the zone when looking to get a swinging strike. Already he has a gotten a ridiculous number of swinging strikes against the pitch, including four out of the six he elicited in the outing scouted. The pitch has the look of a true major league out pitch and, again, the potential to miss bats at the highest level. Feltman will also throw a curveball on occasion, but he didn’t use the pitch in the outing scouted and he throws the pitch rarely.

Though Feltman has been pushed to Salem already, it is unlikely he reaches the big leagues this year. His usage patterns don’t suggest that he is getting ramped up for such a role, as he has only thrown on fewer than three days’ rest on one occasion, which coincidently is the only outing during which he has given up multiple runs this year. Feltman made four appearances with Lowell, seven with Greenville, and has one so far with Salem. After another four or five appearances with Salem, assuming the same success he’s had so far, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him head up to Portland to end the season. Should his success continue there and into Spring Training next year, a non-roster invitation to major league camp with an eye towards making his major league debut sometime next season is definitely not out of the question and perhaps even likely.

          Cup of Coffee: Castellanos hits 4 for 4; Rodriguez throws complete game      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
8/9 Cup of Coffee: The teams in the upper minors struggled as Portland was blown out and Pawtucket blew a short-lived lead late in the game, but the second DSL team went 2-0 on the day, and the GCL Red Sox earned a big win. Pedro Castellanos (pictured, right) highlighted the hitting performances with a perfect 4-for-4 day, including a home run that helped put the game away. Jorge Rodriguez delivered an unconventional complete game for DSL Red Sox2 as well in their regularly scheduled game after they completed a suspended one in the morning.

-----

Louisville Bats (CIN) 6, Pawtucket Red Sox 5
The teams traded four-run eighths, but Pawtucket could not strike back to force the game to the bottom of the ninth as Louisville held on. Brandon Phillips hit 4 for 5 with three doubles while Rusney Castillo added three hits of his own. Chandler Shepherd allowed two runs on seven hits in six innings. Travis Lakins followed with a shut-down seventh, but with one out in the eighth, a passed ball followed by an error by Josh Ockimey allowed a run to score. Later in the frame, after walks by both Lakins and Robby Scott loaded the bases, old friend Nick Longhi cleared them with a double.

-----

Erie SeaWolves (DET) 18, Portland Sea Dogs 1
Michael Chavis had three hits, and Chad De La Guerra had two more, but bright spots were few and far between in a complete drubbing in Erie. After Kyle Hart gave up five runs (two earned) in five innings, the wheels truly fell off. Harrison Cooney allowed six runs to cross the plate without recording an out, and Jared Oliver had five more (three earned) on his tab in 1 2/3 innings. Jordan Betts made his second pitching appearance as a position player, giving up a pair in the eighth.

-----

Wilmington Blue Rocks (KC) 6, Salem Red Sox 2
Jerry Downs had two hits, but the other eight guys in the lineup combined for three more as Salem dropped the middle game to Wilmington. Kutter Crawford had a quality start, allowing three runs on eight hits in six innings of work. He also struck out seven and walked one batter. Daniel Gonzalez surrendered three runs, one of which was earned, on four hits in two innings to complete the ballgame. He struck out six but allowed two home runs.

-----

Greenville Drive 7, Columbia Fireflies (NYM) 1
Recently promoted NewYork-Penn League all-star Eduard Bazardo dominated for Greenville on Wednesday, allowing just one run in seven innings. He gave up five hits and struck out four without walking a batter. Columbia was in striking distance, down three, but a three-run eighth pushed the game out of reach. Pedro Castellanos was 4 for 4 with a two-run home run as part of the eighth inning, with Jordan Wren hitting 3 for 4, also with a two-run blast. He added a triple as well, as the two accounted for seven of Greenville's 12 hits.

-----

Lowell Spinners 3, Staten Island Yankees 1
It was a wet one on Staten Island, as a 1:45 rain delay pushed back first pitch to 8:45, but the Spinners were able to come out with the win, despite recording just five hits. Devlin Granberg and Lane Milligan each had two hits, with Milligan adding a home run. Tyler Dearden accounted for the fifth hit with a solo shot of his own. Taylor Ahearn pitched six sparkling frames, allowing just a run on two hits. He walked one and struck out five, while Andrew Politi delivered a perfect ninth with two strikeouts mixed in to complete the ballgame.

-----

GCL Red Sox 10, GCL Orioles 2
The Red Sox grabbed five runs in the fifth on the way to a dominating win, despite the bottom third of the order going 0 for 11. Elih Marrero scored three times to go along with a triple, and Brandon Howlett was 2 for 4 with a home run and five RBI. Juan Hernandez and Keibert Petit each had two hits, with Petit adding a pair of RBI. Alex Scherff pitched two innings in a rehab stint, allowing a run on three hits, striking out one. Yusniel Padron-Artiles, Connor Berry and Robert Baker ended the contest with five shutout innings. 

-----

DSL Dodgers Robinson 3, DSL Red Sox1 2
Felix Cepeda's start ended after one inning where he walked three, allowed a hit and struck out a pair and Jeison Pena picked up the slack. He went six strong frames, allowing just two unearned runs on three hits to go along with a walk and two strikeouts. Gilberto Jiminez, Wilker Vargas, and Lewis Baez each had 2-for-5 days, with Jiminez roping a triple, but they accounted for six of eight Red Sox hits.

-----


While only four Red Sox recorded seven hits, it was enough as the Dodgers committed three errors in the completion of a game suspended back on July 23. Jorge Rodriguez delivered an unusual complete game, allowing two runs on nine hits, walking one against seven strikeouts--all over three weeks. After pitching the first four innings last month, Rodriguez re-took the mound for his regular spot in the rotation, completing his own effort. Gabriel Perez, Nelfy Abreu, and Ronaldo Pulgar each had two hits, with Perez adding a triple. Abreu, Pulgar and Oscar Rangel each had an RBI as well.

DSL Red Sox2 5, DSL Dodgers Guerrero 4 (7 Innings)
In the regularly-scheduled contest, the Red Sox resisted a two-run surge from the Dodgers in the bottom of the seventh. Gabriel Quintero had two RBI, and Kleiber Rodriguez had two base knocks with an RBI as well. Brayan Bello gave his team five innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits. He also struck out an impressive 10 batters. Gregoria Segovia finished it off, giving up the same two runs on the same four hits in two innings. He struck out three batters.

-----

Player of the Night: It's tough to argue with a 4-for-4 performance, especially when it includes a clutch home run late in a game. Pedro Castellanos played a key role in Greenville's win on Wednesday. He got two games in with the Drive in 2017 and has spent the entire 2018 season in South Carolina and has been hitting. His slash line was at .286/.319/.359 heading into the day and he has only struck out 34 times in 245 at-bats.

The 20-year-old is on an eight-game hitting streak and has at least two hits in his last four games. He has only struck out twice during the streak.

All my friends are dying. Literally and not so literally.

I lost touch with my high school best friend over a boy. In January of this year, she killed herself. I always thought we would be able to reconnect. I have four other friends who have committed suicide this year.

My friends are killing their mental health over getting jobs, internships, relationships and making something of themselves.

All my friends are dying. They're dying to be a slave to corporate America. To not feel anymore. To be and to do and to never truly learn about themselves.

How do you measure success? Is it worth it?

What does success mean to you? Is it worth dying over?

Why do you want to be successful? Is that really what you want?

All my friends are fucking dying. Am I next?

          Something About When Food Becomes Catered      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by Anonymous

The food becomes bland and tasteless. I often wonder why I put certain food in my mouth and down my stomach to satisfy my hunger. Sometimes, not a lot, I hope because I'm learning that it is an absolute waste to eat some food just to satisfy my hunger. Not only for how I feel, but why should I feel the need to scarf food down because I'm hungry that doesn't even taste good? What's the point of that? The point of anything for taste, hunger and thirst is for quality, isn't it?
I won't name the places because they are reputable, and when I eat at the restaurant, the food tastes good, at least better. For work, and because it is in large quantities for a large group of people, I guess all bets are off for any quality and standard.
I've had burritos with no taste basically rice and beans. I've had pizza that seemed to be without any tomato sauce. The best pizza is all about the sauce. Even Subway too, that's also because you can't the accoutrements you want. I've Thai food from a good restaurant where it tasted more like Chinese.
Then I wondered, why did I eat this?
I guess, when food is made in bulk, it gets made with little quality, and for the purpose of providing satisfaction for the mass general populace.
I just won't do it anymore. A peanut butter sandwich tastes better to me than eating catered food.

We know nut butters are super nutritious. But when we eat them, we feel like we're sneaking dessert. When we tasted Carolyn Cesario and Julie Sullivan's versions, we KNEW we were. With a few carefully chosen ingredients added to flavorful roasted almonds and cashews, they've created swoony yet healthy indulgences for spooning straight from the jar, adding to oatmeal and smoothies, or spreading on fruit or toast.Cinnamon Snickerdoodle is an almond, cashew, and toasted coconut blend with cinnamon and vanilla. Chunky Almond, Cashew & Coconut, and Coconut Cardamom need no explanation (words, anyway, cannot convey how unbelievably aromatic and delicious they are). None are sweetened with more than a touch of honey or have added oils, so we know they're good for us. But we still feel we're getting away with something. Made in Portland, Oregon by Carolyn, Julie, and a team of women who are learning job skills, thanks to nut butter. (See their maker bio for more.)
          Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Thursday August 9th , 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Domain Shane Domain Shane:
I’ve learned a few things over the years about what people want to hear.  One.  They want to hear how you made the money. It’s great that you made money but they really only care about how THEY can also make that kind of money.  If the article or speech doesn’t tell them how to do it then it better be a damn good story about the journey.  As much as people like to learn to make money, they enjoy a good story.
Two.  They want to hear about the lifestyle that comes with money.   They don’t want to hear a brag, they want to hear about the stupid stuff you purchased and why it was stupid but you enjoyed the hell out of it.  Anything entertaining.  I think Frank Schilling has missed so many opportunities to give incredible speeches over the last few years.  He has an incredible story and can be as entertaining as anyone in the industry.  Instead the speeches of late are about selling Uniregistry.  He mentioned buying fuel for his jet in a speech and everyone just shook their head.  He doesn’t realize they don’t want to hear about the jet.  They want to hear about the journey to the jet.  He has a go to story about selling a group of domains that he thought he sold for a set price but the check came in 8 times that and realized the buyer thought that was an each price instead of for all of them.  People love that story and I bet he has 100 more of them.   That’s a speech we all want to see.
There are so many good talks and stories to be had in this industry if someone asks the right questions.  Michael Cyger was the best at getting these stories.  There hasn’t been anyone before and since that had that ability.  Andrew Alleman is close but he doesn’t draw out the extended answers that Michael did. He’s a little quick to get to the next question.   It’s not a knock on him.  I think he is the best news reporter in the business.  Interviewing is a learned and honed skill.
The current Domain Sherpa does a good job.  They’re working hard but I would be lying if I didn’t say its still not the caliber of Cyger.

          Gleason Fest: A Q-and-A with the festival’s namesake, Steve Gleason      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In 2012, just a year after former NFL player and Gonzaga Prep standout Steve Gleason was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Gleason could be found in his hometown of Spokane, attending a music festival dubbed Gleason Gras West and listening to bands such as B Radicals, Hey Marseilles and Hey! is for Horses.

A year later, the festivities moved to a parking lot at Main and Division and gained a new name: Gleason Fest. The new festival with a two-pronged goal: to provide an entertaining day of music as well as to raise awareness and funds in support of those with ALS and other neuromuscular diseases. Since then, Gleason Fest has welcomed Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Grouplove, Portugal. The Man and regional favorites Pickwick, Mama Doll, the Rustics and Lavoy.

Oh, and in 2016, the festival moved from that parking lot downtown to the the Lilac Bowl stage in Riverfront Park. This year, that stage will host indie darlings Joseph and Blind Pilot, as well as the Shook Twins, who now live in Portland but hail from Sandpoint, Seattle’s Deep Sea Diver and the Cincinnati rock trio Electric Son.

In an email interview, Gleason talked about the festival’s impetus, what he loves about it and talks about a big change coming for him and his wife, Michel, and son Rivers

Q: Where did the idea for a music festival come from?

A: My brother, Kyle, hatched the idea to have a music festival in Spokane. I loved the idea, so we teamed up with John Blakesley, who was producing some events and festivals in the area. Essentially, our goal was to have a family friendly party, with indie and alternative music, and hang out with the people of Spokane.

Q: Your love of music is well established. Do you see it as a natural fit to mix music with education and activism?

A: When I was diagnosed with ALS, I told our family and friends that I wanted to continue doing the things I love, with the people I love. Gleason Fest is a great example of how, with the help from family and friends, we’ve been able to keep doing things we love.

Q: How much of a role do you play in selecting the lineup.

A. That is mostly my brother’s arena. He’s the engine behind the booking. He’s developed relationships with managers, bands and agents. He’ll send me some ideas for bands, and we’ll go back and forth on what we think. He’s done great work over the past several years.

Q: Obviously, the festival has a two-pronged mission to be a fun time and be educational when it comes to ALS awareness. Are you satisfied with how that mission is progressing?

A: In my opinion, the best way to raise awareness, or be an activist, is to do epic things you love, with such passion, that people can’t help but notice and get involved. I feel like that aspect of our mission going quite well.

Q: You’ve been to all of them. Is there a favorite memory that sticks out?

A: I love that we moved the venue to Riverfront Park. That is a jewel in Spokane, so the past couple years have really stood out to me, from an emotional and visual perspective. Our Team Gleason NW crew, led by Rian Emmerson, has done a fantastic job with the logistics of that.

Q: Finally, congratulations on your and Michel’s big news: A baby girl in October! I can’t help but think of the post you have pinned on your Twitter page: “Today marks the six year anniversary of my ALS diagnosis, and I love my life. I feel purposeful and fulfilled with where I am. I’m excited about what is ahead.” Was this feeling part of what made you both to decide to have another child?

A: I definitely think that Michel and I feel like we have less chaos in our lives, compared to say four or five years ago. That is not to say that our lives are easy, or that we feel completely comfortable with the decision, but I don’t think any reasonable couple feels 100 percent comfortable with making such an important decision. I certainly feel purpose and meaning in my life, and part of that feeling is the result of being engaged and influential as a father.


          Gleason Fest welcomes Blind Pilot, Joseph, Shook Twins, more to Riverfront Park      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

As it does every August, Gleason Fest brings both bands and fans together in the name of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis awareness.

Gleason Fest, now in its seventh year, was inspired by Spokane’s own Steve Gleason and benefits the Gleason Initiative Foundation’s mission to help those with ALS.

The festival started small, with a weekend concert series at places like the Saranac Public House and the Bing Crosby Theater in 2012. Performers included Hey Marseille!, Blake Noble and Hey! is for Horses.

But in short time, the community’s support of the event grew. So much so that the festival quickly moved to a stage at Division Street and Main Avenue to its current location, the Lilac Bowl Amphitheatre at Riverfront Park.

“That’s something that we strive for,” said Team Gleason publicist Rian Emmerson, who has known Gleason since college. “Not only in growth of people attending but sponsors getting involved.”

This year, Gleason Fest welcomes Blind Pilot, Joseph, Shook Twins, Deep Sea Diver and Electric Son to Riverfront Park on Saturday.

“Steve really does have his finger on the pulse with this,” Emmerson said. “He’s passionate about music and really likes that indie music feel.”

Gleason’s brother Kyle and, new to this year’s festival, Matt Meyer, creator of the Tinnabulation Music Festival, also had some input into this year’s lineup.

Indie-folk sextet Blind Pilot latest album, 2016’s “And Then Like Lions,” is a chronicle of both loss and what comes after.

In one month, lead singer Israel Nebeker lost his closest group of friends and a 13-year relationship, and his father was diagnosed with cancer.

Though he admits there was suffering, Nebeker said through that suffering, as he cared for his father, he found true closeness, a deeper will to care and hope, and moments of indescribable beauty.

“This album came from love for my family, my town, my friends, my community,” he said on the band’s Facebook page. “We don’t have to be so afraid of loss. We can speak and share its name, knowing we are together in it. If these songs are invitations to talk about loss and death, the invitation is to talk closely of the courage we find when we face loss honestly, cracked open and unsure of what we will become.”

This performance comes a couple of weeks after Blind Pilot wrapped up its “3 Rounds and a Sound” 10-year anniversary tour, during which the band played the album in full, so expect to hear a tune or two from that record.

Pop-folk band Joseph’s latest release, the EP “Stay Awake,” finds the trio of sisters mixing originals, both old (a demo called “50 60 80”) and reimagined (“Planets,” from 2016’s “I’m Alone, No You’re Not”), with covers, like Tears for Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” in an attempt to help themselves “deal with heaviness.”

On its website, Allison, Meegan and Natalie Closner, the latter of whom lived and performed in Spokane before Joseph formed, wrote they were struck by how relevant “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” is today.

In response to the current state of the world, Natalie Closner added a few lyrics to the band’s cover.

“Make the most of freedom and pleasure/All I know is take care of each other/An open door, a seat at the table, there’s enough to go around.”

“We hope that our music can be a force of togetherness when it seems like everything’s trying to divide us,” the band wrote on its website.

Shook Twins – Katelyn (vocals, guitar) and Laurie (banjo, vocals) Shook, joined by Barra Brown (drums, vocals), Niko Daoussis (mandolin, electric guitar, vocals) and Josh Simon (bass, vocals) – are no strangers to the Inland Northwest.

They performed as part of the Festival at Sandpoint last year and at the Bartlett in 2016. They opened for Greensky Bluegrass at the Knitting Factory in 2016 too, though their Inland Northwest performance history stretches back to at least 2013.

It’s no surprise that the indie/folk-pop band keeps the Inland Northwest close though; the Shooks grew up in Sandpoint, and the band is now based in Portland.

After a summer of travel that had them criss-crossing the country for festivals in North Carolina, California, New Mexico, Michigan, Oregon, Idaho and Colorado, plus the Fayetteville Roots Festival in Arkansas later this month, the band is back home for Gleason Fest.

The band released the “2” EP last year, and a new single called “Stay Wild” in April, so keep your fingers crossed for a new tune or two to appear on the setlist.

If you don’t catch them this time around, the Shook Twins will be back in Spokane on Sept. 25 to open for Gregory Alan Isakov at the Bing.

The News section of Deep Sea Diver’s website offers very little, but very exciting, information about the Seattle band.

“Deep Sea Diver is currently getting ready to record album #3!,” it proclaims above a photo of the quartet – singer/multi-instrumentalist Jessica Dobson, bassist Garrett Gue, guitarist/synth player Elliot Jackson and drummer Peter Mansen – sitting on a nondescript gray couch in a nondescript studio.

After introducing themselves to the world with 2009’s “New Caves” EP, Deep Sea Diver’s first full-length, “History Speaks,” was released in 2012.

The “Always Waiting” EP followed in 2014, and the band released its sophomore album “Secrets” in 2016.

The band’s Facebook and Instagram accounts offer no more information about its upcoming album, but Inland Northwest-based fans will surely get a sneak peek or two at what the band has been working on during Gleason Fest.

And finally, Electric Son will brings its blend of funk, rock and blues to Spokane all the way from Cincinnati.

The quartet – vocalist Leslie Frimer, drummer Matt Hiudt, guitarist/lead vocalist Jim Salters and bassist Marcus Saskin – has built up quite the following in Cincinnati with regular gigs at Car Rock Cafe and Taft Ale House, but Spokane isn’t completely unfamiliar territory for Electric Son.

“It’s a hometown gig for Jim who can’t wait to play for Steve,” the band wrote on Facebook.

Before Gleason Fest, a few of the bands will perform an acoustic concert for ALS patients and their families.

Emmerson is touched by the unwavering support from both the bands and community members, but it doesn’t surprise her.

“He’s always been that legend from Gonzaga Prep,” Emmerson said. “Two-sport athlete at WSU and that pride of Spokane when he went and was successful with the Saints. What I love about Spokane is they welcome him home with open arms and continue to support him and his mission … It’s really neat to have everybody feel like he’s still their hometown kid.”

At Gleason Fest, the Full Sail Brewing and Kyla Kombucha Beer Garden will be open for those 21 and older, and there will also be several food trucks, a photobooth, face painting, a henna artist and Spokane Sidewalk Games at the event. Free parking is available at WSU Spokane.

          Bill to remove problem sea lions faces time crunch      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A bill making its way through the U.S. Senate would allow the states and tribal interests to remove problem sea lions in the Columbia River, including by lethal force, to reduce predation on endangered salmon and steelhead.

However, the timeline for the passage of this legislation is growing very short.

SB 3119 is a companion bill for legislation already passed in the House of Representatives — HR 2083. There are only minor differences between the two versions of the bill.

Named the Endangered Salmon Prevention Act, the bill would amend the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 (MMPA), to authorize the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to issue permits allowing Washington, Oregon, Idaho, the Nez Perce Tribe, the tribes of the Umatilla, Warm Springs, and Yakima nations, the Cowlitz Indian Tribe, and the Columbia Inter-tribal Fish Commission to kill sea lions in a portion of the Columbia River and certain tributaries in order to protect fish from sea lion predation.

The permits will only be issued if the sea lions are a part of a population that isn’t already depleted. The permits themselves are exempt from environmental review requirements for five years.

The bill was introduced by Sen. James E Risch, (R-Idaho). It is backed by the governors of all three states and a number of Northwest senators including Washington’s Maria Cantwell.

The bill was passed out of committee last week and will be addressed by the full senate soon, but there is a time constraint. If the bill is not passed before Congress adjourns for the year, its future is uncertain.

SB 3119 represents the best effort to date to amend the MMPA since its inception to allow stronger management of problem sea lions. It specifically targets animals that take up positions at pinch-points where salmon are forced to concentrate and are easy prey for the pinnipeds.

The California sea lion population has exploded in recent years, from 30,000 in 1972 when the MMPA was enacted, to more than 300,000 today.

To say that fishermen, tribes, and conservationists are excited about the possibility is an understatement. Many of them see the problem as one of the biggest threats to the recovery of salmon and steelhead within the Columbia River basin.

Guido Rahr, the president and CEO of the Wild Salmon Center in Portland, spoke in favor of the bill during a recent press conference in Vancouver held by Cantwell to press for passage of the legislation.

“At Bonneville Dam we now have over 150 California sea lions gathering,” Rahr said. “Forty-three percent of our spring Chinook this year were intercepted by sea lions.”

He added that the runs could not sustain that kind of predation, and pressed for swift passage of the bill.

Cantwell is a strong supporter of the bill, and she addressed the problems these animals are causing at the press conference.

“If this predation continues, our efforts to recover salmon and steelhead will become even more compromised,” she said.

The bill will now be considered by the full senate. If it is passed the differences in the Senate and House versions of the bill would then be addressed and reconciled.

However, the clock is ticking.

She filed an injury lawsuit against the school district, as well as the older boy and his parents, bringing counts for negligence and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

          The power to stop the far right      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Danny Katch, author of Why Bad Governments Happen to Good People, argues that we have to make sure the strike is mightier than the punch.

THIS IS the second summer of the Donald Trump presidency, and the second summer that fascists and their “alt-right” buddies have assembled on the East and Wests Coasts for “rallies” that are, in reality, testing grounds for their ability to impose their violence on the public square.

In the lead-up to last weekend’s hate marches in Portland, Oregon, and Berkeley, California, and this Sunday’s sickeningly named “White Civil Rights Rally” near the White House, we’ve seen two expressions of very different visions of power — one projected by the fascists and another by those who oppose them.

White supremacists around the country celebrated the image of Ethan Nordean, a member of the Proud Boys, punching out an anti-fascist protester during a clash in Portland on June 30.

Meanwhile, our side took heart when the managers of the Washington D.C. Metro were forced to abandon their absurd plan to give fascists private train cars to get them to their rally — after the largely Black transit workers union declared that it wasn’t going along with this stupidity.

A massive mobilization opposed the far right in Boston
A massive mobilization opposed the far right in Boston

The fanatical centrists of the U.S. establishment like to equate socialists and white supremacists as simply two different versions of “populism.” But these two examples of their power and ours — a punch vs. a strike (or at least a threatened one) — show just how fundamentally opposite we are.

Theirs is the politics of destruction, aiming to use mob violence to eliminate all organizing and resistance among people of color, women, LGBTQ people and workers. (Including transit workers, who were fired en masse in Italy as Mussolini vowed to make the trains run on time).

Ours is the politics of creation, aiming to finally put the majority class in the position of being the decision-makers over the work we already do.

Protests against the far right like this weekend’s in Washington, D.C., are critical because socialists need to stop those who seek to destroy us.

But the struggle to defend our streets and communities from fascists — and the understanding that police and elected officials can’t and won’t do it for us — is also a crucial part of our larger project of developing the capacity of our class to fight for a more fundamentally democratic society.


OF COURSE, the far right currently has another source of power far greater than street violence: the office of the president of the United States.

The horror in Charlottesville, which took place one year ago this weekend, confirmed everyone’s worst fears about the Trump presidency.

There were the hundreds of goons marching with swastikas, Confederate flags and, for some reason, tiki torches, beating and harassing protesters and passersby as police yawned nearby. This culminated in James Fields’ vehicular terror attack that killed Heather Heyer and injured many others, including Socialist Worker contributor Bill Burke.

And there was Trump’s response, which began with a boast about the soaring stock market before moving the infamous sentence: “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides.

Trump’s reaction to Charlottesville threw his presidency into turmoil and probably permanently ruined his chances of ever winning support from the majority of voters. But he muddled through in the absence of protest movements and organizations strong enough to create a crisis that forced him out by some means. So in addition to the turmoil, Charlottesville now stands as the beginning of the White House shift further to the right.

DACA was repealed (though it survives thanks to legal challenges). Trade wars were started. Immigrant children were stolen from their parents. “Globalist” members of the team were out, right-wing nationalist advisers were elevated. Alt-right whisperer Steve Bannon was fired for some quotes in Fire and Fury, but he might have more power than ever as a shadow adviser and informal ambassador to European far right parties.

Trump rallies have veered further into Nuremberg territory, with ever-more explicit threats to the media as the “enemy of the people” and attendees using them as meet-ups for creepy online conspiracy cults.

Some of the most ominous developments are in Portland, where Patriot Prayer marches mix Trump MAGA hats and Nazi salutes with fire and brimstone rhetoric about a great cleansing of the far right’s opponents.

Groups like Patriot Prayer and the Proud Boys are seeking out street violence because it’s the time-honored way that fascists have built their ranks.

That became apparent when Nordean became a far-right celebrity for his punch, being named “Proud Boy of the Week” and getting interviewed by Alex Jones, who said about leftists: “You try to speak to them as humans, they disregard that and use it as weakness. But they do listen to your fist smashing into their face.”


THE GROWTH of white supremacists, from the Oval Office to the streets of Portland, is sobering and frightening, but it’s important to recognize that their key weakness remains: They are widely despised.

The far right worships a president who pushes tax breaks for billionaires while gutting health care for everyone else. They have nothing to offer working people besides hatred of other working people and conspiracy theories about the politically correct Marxists who secretly run the world.

Actually, their guy has the most powerful office in the world, and the way he’s running it — still complaining about hidden conspiracies, too afraid to speak outside the safe spaces of Fox News and his own rallies — exemplifies their ultimate impotency.

Unlike many parts of the world, where far-right parties have gained mass support in reaction to the failures and betrayals of left parties, in this country, we’ve had four decades of right-wing austerity — including the terms of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama — and people are hungry for the politics of solidarity and economic justice.

There is a widespread desire to oppose the far-right agenda in this country. More people have protested in the past year and a half than any time in U.S. history. Socialist groups like the Democratic Socialists of America are exploding in size.

But it’s up to us to stop them. For all of the justified outrage over Trump’s statement after Charlottesville last year, most of media and political establishment took a similar view — that both fascists and those who come out to oppose them are problematic extremists, taking the law into their own hands, instead of letting the system do its job.

But it’s the system — the system of Electoral College, voter suppression and two parties that both report to Wall Street and have no answer for the deteriorating conditions a majority of people face — which put Donald Trump in power. And it’s the system, in the form of police who repeatedly side with Nazis over protesters and wanted to give them a private train escort — that bears the blame for the right’s rise.


SO WE’RE right to take the fight against the far right into our own hands. But we can only do it with numbers.

The protests against the fascists in Portland, Berkeley and Washington, D.C., have been important, but in truth, they should be far larger after the horrors of Charlottesville last summer.

Some of reason might be that activists are focused on the many other horrors of the Trump era. But it’s also likely connected to the growing attention on the midterm elections as the best way to get rid of Trump — by winning a Democratic majority in one or both houses of Congress that can both block his agenda and pursue investigations that could bring him down.

But even if this works, that doesn’t mean that diminishing Trump’s power within Washington or even getting rid of him will diminish or get rid of the far right. In fact, the examples of France and Italy show that the experience of center-left governments betraying people’s hopes can actually help the far right grow even stronger.

Not only that, but we’ve seen in Portland and Berkeley that liberal city administrations won’t do anything to stop the obvious bias shown among the ranks of their police forces against those who protest white supremacy.

We know what works against the far right, because we saw it last year in the weeks after Charlottesville: Mass protests that demoralize the far right by proving that they are pathetic pariahs who can’t risk showing up in public. The eruption of protest proved to everybody that this society wasn’t going to allow the right to succeed in its project of restoring Nazis and the KKK to a place of acceptability.

When we build those mass protests and use our own superior numbers — a form of democracy more responsive than the rigged system that gave us Trump vs. Clinton — we are also contributing to the project of building real power, the same power we need to defend abortion clinics and build rapid-response networks that can stand up to ICE raids in our communities.

And then there’s the power of workers, as shown by Amalgamated Transit Union Local 689 in Washington, whose President Jackie Jeter declared: “More than 80 percent of Local 689’s membership is people of color, the very people that the Ku Klux Klan and other white nationalist groups have killed, harassed and violated. The union has declared that it will not play a role in their special accommodation.”

Our longer-term goal has to be to mobilize this power in the fight against the far right and Trump. It’s a good step that SEIU 1021 and other unions were part of the coalition that mobilized against fascists in Berkeley. The goal must be to get more workers to these protest and raise the issue of job actions against the far right, just as tech workers are starting to organize against their company’s contracts with ICE and the Border Patrol.

That’s our socialist vision of power: working shutting this system down. It packs a much harder punch than any Nazi.

          How A Labor Of Love Grew Into An 'Enchanted Forest' In Oregon      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Summertime is for road trips. Atlas Obscura and All Things Considered are traveling up the West Coast, from California to Washington, in search of "hidden wonders" — unique but overlooked people and places. Driving on Interstate 5 in Turner, Ore. — about an hour south of Portland — it's hard to miss the towering road sign, topped by a waving Humpty Dumpty: "Enchanted Forest Theme Park. Next Exit." The park's attractions fill the hillside just off the highway — but it wouldn't exist without the dedication of one man. Roger Tofte grew up wanting to be an illustrator in the mold of Norman Rockwell. Instead, he found himself working as a draftsman for the Oregon highway department. It was during a family road trip with his wife and kids in 1963 when inspiration struck. Tofte remembers seeing roadside amusement parks that were "just plywood and there wasn't much to them so I kinda started dreaming up what I'd like to do." Tofte returned home, made a $500 down payment on 20 acres of wooded

          Radio Free Northwest: Ice Cream With Manure – RFN 080718      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
rfn 080918

This week’s Radio Free Northwest is made from clips of Harold Covington explaining why the Northwest Front is the only solution to White genocide in North America.

The clips include Harold’s explanation for why we use forbidden words and politically incorrect language. Orwell’s 1984 includes an essay on what he called ‘New Speak’ about the limitation of thought through the manipulation of language. By making us fear uttering certain words out loud, the State has forced us to censor our own thoughts. We are not supposed to even have words in our minds that can help formulate these forbidden thoughts, therefore we are obliged to use then whenever and wherever we can.

Also included is a refutation of the excuse that the northwest is full of Liberals, so it’s not worth moving there. This is true, but only for Portland and Seattle, huge cities that are full of every type of degenerate. They exert inordinate influence on the state, but outside of those cities the area is full of conservative minded Whites. The northwest is still 95% White on average, but that is not apparent in the huge cities, only in the rural areas.

Cruising for snitches is also covered, the ways in which the secret police try to recruit informers. If they come to your house, do not let them in and do not speak to them unless they have a warrant. Any contact with them at all needs to be for the minimum amount of time. They need to justify their budgets and in order to do that, they first need to create a threat and they do that, by recruiting informers. Once they have established that someone will actually talk to them, they will note that in their books and then work on that person. They especially like clever Right-Wing types that think they know the law, their rights and the constitution. Never talk to them at all, unless you are forced to because they have a warrant and then you say ‘I have nothing to say’.

          Reviewed: New Logo and Identity for PATH by Manual      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

“The Straight and Narrow”

New Logo and Identity for PATH by Manual

Established in 1977 (originally as Program for Appropriate Technology in Health), PATH is a non-governmental organization that works to accelerate health equity around the world by bringing together public institutions, businesses, social enterprises, and investors to solve the world's most pressing health challenges. With 1,600 employees working in more than 70 countries, PATH develops and scales health solutions like vaccines, drugs, devices, and diagnostics, to strengthen and improve health systems worldwide. This past July, PATH introduced a new website designed by Portland, OR-based Instrument (that also worked on the brand strategy) and new identity designed by San Francisco, CA-based Manual.

In the Summer of 2017, PATH engaged Manual to overhaul their brand image. The challenge was myriad: to help better tell the story of a multimodal and diverse organization; to bring clarity and modernity to communications; to elevate their innovations; to better reflect the truly global nature of the organization; and finally, to provide a hard-working design systems toolkit that would allow designers around the world to manage brand assets. Ultimately, to reimagine what a nonprofit brand should be. While PATH was actively seeking a firm more attuned to working with the for-profit sector in an effort to elevate and differentiate themselves within the nonprofit landscape, we found the prospect of working with an NGO a welcome and refreshing opportunity.

New Logo and Identity for PATH by Manual
Sample materials of OLD identity.
At the heart of the brand is an idiosyncratic logo. Unlike any other health organization in the world, PATH works on all pieces of the global public health puzzle, so we underscored PATH's bold name with a string of abstract and geometric shapes that represent the diverse and innovative methods PATH employs to address global health challenges. The logo triggers connotations of networks, partnerships, and initiatives working together for a common goal.

Regular and small size logo variations.
The line of abstract symbols in the logo becomes the design system for all PATH communications across print and digital. Zooming in and framing photos within this system helps unify the varying library of photography, and connects people, initiatives, and geographies together in a way that brings the whole organization under one umbrella. As you read, click, and scroll, you start to see the true DNA of PATH. We created detailed design guidelines and templates to allow for PATH employees worldwide to create communications using one simple system--from Powerpoint templates and printed reports, to web and social media content.

The underline filled in.

It's hard to knock on the logo of an organization that does so much good in the world but the old logo wasn't particularly attractive. The icon was sort of interesting and maybe with a better balance of how the dots sat within the asterisk it could have been better but the wordmark had no redeeming qualities, especially not in its horizontal scaling. The new logo is unexpected not just for an NGO but for any kind of company. The wordmark itself, of course, is not the unexpected part -- this is a nice, simple, straightforward wordmark. It's the icon underline that is intriguing, different, and unique. The first inclination is trying to decode it, as if it stands for something... there is a nut (of the bolt kind, not the squirrel kind), perhaps two slashes from a URL, a person for sure, but then the rest are abstract so it becomes almost like some kind of chemistry or physics sequence, but in the end it simply comes across as many things working together to build something bigger. Visually, it's great, and, as the seed of the identity system, it's very smart.

The applications are really good, straddling various moods by coming across as a balance of feeling corporate, medical, nonprofit-ish, and even a little techie. I realize that doesn't make a lot of sense but I see the report covers and they could easily be for a Fortune 500 company, a Sillicon Valley powerhouse, or an innovative pharma company -- but all of them not evil. I love the integration of the icons in different ways: with or without photography inside, large or larger, and scrolling across the layouts vertically or horizontally. It's a strong, flexible system.

As its main stage finale in this Diamond Jubilee season, Maine State Music Theatre chose to present the stage version of one of the most beloved musicals of all time, Singin' in the Rain. With its book by Betty Comden/Adolph Green, and songs by Nacio Herb Brown/Arthur Freed), based on the famed MGM musical, this iconic classic receives a production that recreates the glitter of Hollywood's Golden Age on a dazzlingly grand scale. MSMT's staging, directed/choreographed by Marc Robin, sparkles with the effervescence of fine champagne, bubbles with energy and originality, exudes sunshine and joy, and offers its audiences an exhilarating, entirely magical entertainment experience.

Envisioned on a majestic scale, filled with cinematic visual splendor, technical bravura, and sensational song and dance sequences, MSMT's production, nonetheless manages to keep a tight narrative and tell a heart warmingly human story as well. Robin knows the show inside and out - (this is his ninth production) - and he brings to the material his long experience, as well as many inventive and fresh touches created especially for this new cast. He smoothly spins the familiar narrative and succeeds in referencing all the film's iconic moments at the same time that he translates them into stage vocabulary that reads vividly as drama. He often finds surprisingly original solutions to constraints posed by live theatre so that the fancy camera work and rapid shift effects of the movie are cleverly suggested. And his choreography is brilliantly filled with a feeling of abundance, generosity, and old-fashioned sentiment. Robin is a master of extravagant production numbers at the same time that he knows how to create intricate, witty tap sequences, and romantic, elegant ballet and ballroom moments.

No small part of this musical are the silent film sequences (videography by the WGME team and directed on location at New Hampshire's Searles Castle and Portland's Victorian Mansion by Curt Dale Clark and Raymond Marc Dumont), that capture perfectly the silliness of the style and the authenticity of the look.

Music Director Ray Fellman leads the ten-person orchestra with melodic verve, sounding opulent even when the pit is covered for the rain sequence, while Assistant Music Director Ben McNaboe's skillfully reduced orchestrations manage to sound lush and vivid in the Pickard.

The entire physical production, like Beauty and the Beastearlier this season, is almost mind-boggling in its lavish complexity. Robert Andrew Kovach creates the studio lot world that is the single locale of the stage show and uses vintage props to transform the cavernous interior into various movie montages. Projections by Ryan Swift Joyner - both atmospheric ones like the rain drops or stars and actual photographic indicators of architectural elements - add kineticism, color and dimension, all of which are handsomely lit by Jesse Klug, whose ever-changing palette of rich blues, roses, and sunny yellows shifts with a musical feeling. Shannon Slaton creates a well-balanced sound design that artfully differentiates the live voices and recorded ones and supplies some amusing and well-placed aural effects.

Travis M. Grant is responsible for the spectacular array of costumes - some 130 for "Broadway Melody" alone - all with finely crafted detail, gorgeous fabrics and textures, and striking silhouettes. Jeff Hendry provides the parade of eye-catching millinery - each hat more droll, more outrageous, more eye-catching than the next, and Gerard James Kelly completes the looks with his excellent wigs.

It is also no secret that Singin' in the Rain is a show that requires mega technical proficiency and resources with challenges like the rain and fog and rapid-fire wardrobe changes, and so, it only seems appropriate to single out not only the expert Stage Manager Mark Johnson and Assistant Stage Manager Amy Bertacini for their sure-fire, cool-headed coordination, but also to give a special shout out to the entire crew in every department under the supervision of Charles S. Kading. (The intermission clean up of the stage after the rain sequence is a well-choreographed effort that won applause by the audience who remained in the house).

The cast of principals and ensemble is built on amazing triple threat strength. Making his debut as Don Lockwood, Nicolas Dromard proves himself a dancer to be reckoned with - proficient in the character's many styles, possessed of an elegance and insouciant flair, at the same time that he uses his strong vocal gifts and stylish musicality to excellent effect in both the romantic and comic aspects of the role, and convincingly conveys Lockwood's transformation from self-absorbed screen star to an endearing lover. His work in the "Broadway Melody" ballet alone is noteworthy. Also making a role debut, Kate Fahrner as his love-interest, Kathy Selden, brings a freshness and girl-next-door genuineness, without ever opting for the saccharine. She is a persuasive songstress with a lovely soprano; she impresses especially in "Lucky Star" and "Would You," and she holds up her end of the bargain in the dance numbers, especially in the perky tap of "All I Do Is Dream of you" and "Good Morning." Three-time veteran of this musical, Brian Shepard completes the company of friends as Cosmo Brown, projecting brio, whimsy, and savvy warmth. A consummate dancer and compelling singer, with seemingly limitless plasticity and agility, he brings a breathless exuberance to numbers like "Make 'Em Laugh," "Moses Supposes," and "Good Morning."

As Lina Lamont, Kim Sava creates the perfect contrast of glamor and grating demeanor. She nails the street-wise mannerisms, accent, and high-pitched cadences that doom the silent star's career, and her moments in the silent film and then studio talking film sequences are hilarious.

David Girolmo humanizes R.J. Simpson and adds subtle elements of humor to the beleaguered studio mogul. Charis Leos turns in two delightful, amusingly overbearing character performances as gossip columnist Dora Bailey and diction coach Miss DInsmore, while Andy Kindig provides humor as the exasperated and stressed director Roscoe Dexter. David Scott Purdy as the Production Tenor uses his rich tenor to deliver a vocally show-stopping moment in "Beautiful Girl." Other notable cameos come from Dance Captain Buddy Reeder who also plays the diction coach and gets to have his own dance moment in "Moses Supposes;" Reagan Danel Ogle as a tough, sexy Zelda Zanders, Jesse Lawyer as the sultry Vamp in the "Broadway Melody" ballet and Dan Bob Higgins as a limber gangster. Glen Anderson has an amusingly quirky, pompous moment as the Man on Screen discussing talkies, and Drew Carr plays studio publicist Rod with appropriate nervous subserviance.

The large ensemble (Kelly Liz Bolick, Elisabeth Christie, Michael Peter Deeb, Alex Eisenberg, Carissa Gaughran, Caleb James Grochalski, Jake Hartman, Rebecca Rene Kelly, Mallory King, Ryan Lambert, Stevie Ann Mack, Matthew Marvin, Lauren Mac Donald, Michael Olaribigbe, Melaina Corey Rairamo, Matty Rickard, Alec Duffy Talbott) is filled with talent, especially as dancers and actors able to interpret a wide-range of changing characters.

In recent years where each season seems to top the previous one and the bar is raised artistically higher show by show, MSMT's Singin' in the Rain still creates a frisson - a moment for the audience to pause and wonder at the magnitude of magic taking place before their eyes. Though the season does not officially close for three weeks (and there are several more celebratory events and performances planned), it feels safe to say that MSMT's Diamond Jubilee has been one for the record books. The company, led by Artistic Director Curt Dale Clark, possesses not only professionalism of the highest order, but also dedication, determination, even daring of the kind that distinguishes truly extraordinary artistic accomplishment.

This main stage finale is yet another testament to this achievement. In a musical where "RAIN" is the operative word, MSMT's Singin' in the Rainis pure SUNSHINE and joy!

          Suspect Arrested After Reported Assault Outside of City Hall (Photo)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
On Thursday, August 9, 2018, at 10:24 a.m., Central Precinct officers responded to Southwest 4th Avenue near Portland City Hall, located at 1221 Southwest 4th Avenue, on the report of an assault.

As officers responded to the area, the caller to 9-1-1 informed Bureau of Emergency Communication (BOEC) call-takers he had been struck in the face by a man with a pipe. The caller informed officers he was waiting for responding officers in his vehicle near the intersection of Southwest 4th Avenue and Southwest Madison Street.

When officers arrived near Southwest 4th Avenue and Southwest Madison Street they located a man with an injury to his face. Emergency medical personnel arrived and provided the man emergency medical aid and transported him by ambulance to an area hospital for treatment of what was believed to be a non-life-threatening injury.

During the investigation, officers learned the victim and a man got into a verbal argument regarding sidewalk accessibility in front of Portland City Hall near the protest group. The victim went to his truck, which was parked nearby and the argument continued. The victim went to leave and was stopped at a red light near Portland City Hall when the same man struck him in the face with a pole.

Based on initial information, officers believed the suspect was associated with a group protesting in front of Portland City Hall. A description of the suspect was provided to officers patrolling in Central Precinct. While in the area of Southwest 4th Avenue and West Burnside Street, an officer located a man that matched the suspect's description. The suspect was in possession of a pole that was believed to have been used in the assault.

The suspect, identified as 33-year-old William B. Pierce, was taken into custody without incident. Pierce was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on a charge of Assault in the Second Degree. The pole was seized as evidence.

In attempt to reduce the likelihood of future confrontations and to address sidewalk accessibility issues, officers contacted the group gathered on the west sidewalk of Southwest 4th Avenue near Portland City Hall and provided individuals a "Warning -- Improper Sidewalk Use" https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/article/693822 .

Officers also informed people that any items that were left would be collected by a contracted cleaning service. Items of obvious utility and value that are left behind would be collected, stored and available for pick-up for a period of 30 days. Anyone seeking to reclaim their property should contact Pacific Patrol Services at 503-595-3440.

          Cup of Coffee: Chavis, Dalbec blast two homers apiece      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
8/10 Cup of Coffee: While the system's former valedictorian was hitting for the cycle up in Toronto, its two biggest power bats were leading the Sea Dogs. With two homers each, Bobby Dalbec (pictured) reached 30 homers on the season with nearly four weeks remaining and Michael Chavis continued his torrid stretch. Fellow hot hitters Pedro Castellanos and Jarren Duran led the way in Greenville's romp, and Mike Shawaryn paced Pawtucket's victory. Salem had the only loss among stateside affiliates, with Tanner Houck turning in an uneven but encouraging outing.

-----

Pawtucket Red Sox 6, Louisville Bats (CIN) 2
Mike Shawaryn turned in a solid start to pick up his first Triple-A victory. The former Maryland Terrapin allowed two runs on four hits in five innings, striking out seven and walking four. Shawaryn was backed by a 13-hit attack by the offense, led by the three hits off the bat of Jantzen Witte. Josh Ockimey ripped his first double since last week's promotion, giving him hits in 10 straight games across two levels. Rusney Castillo picked up his 27th double of the year as part of another two-hit night. 


-----

Portland Sea Dogs 10, Erie SeaWolves (DET) 9
Thursday turned into a fireworks display on Lake Erie, as the two biggest power bats in the system both connected for two home runs each to help the Sea Dogs off to a 10-2 lead. Michael Chavis and Bobby Dalbec went back to back in the first inning, with Chavis connecting for a two run shot. Dalbec then delivered a solo blast in the fourth, followed by a Chavis solo shot the following inning. All the more impressive was that all four home runs came off of 2017 first-round pick and former Florida Gators ace Alex Faedo. Chavis got off to a slow start after being activated following his 80-game suspension, but he has been on fire recently. In seven games since the calendar turned to August, he is 13 for 24 with three homers, two doubles, four walks, and only three strikeouts. Easy to miss in the Chavis/Dalbec derby was a strong three-hit evening by Tate Matheny.

Dedgar Jimenez turned in a strong start, allowing two runs in six innings and striking out seven, departing with an eight run lead that seemed well in hand. The Portland bullpen was a roller coaster, with Trey Ball turning in a very rough outing. Ball surrendered five runs (four earned) in his one inning of work, causing his ERA to rise to 7.54 on the year. 

-----

Wilmington Blue Rocks (KC) 6, Salem Red Sox 5
Salem fell despite having each member of its lineup reach base. Jerry Downs led the offensive attack, going 3 for 4 with a walk, two runs scored, and an RBI. Tanner Houck allowed more than two runs in a start for the first time sine July 12, but still had several positives to take away on Thursday night. In all, the 2017 first-round pick allowed four runs on seven hits in five innings. However, Houck struck out seven, walked only two, and induced seven ground ball outs. Austin Glorius returned to Salem after rehab stops in Greenville, Lowell, and the GCL. Glorius allowed a run on two hits in his inning of work. The subjet of Ian Cundall's Scouting Scratch posted earlier in the day, Durbin Feltman fired a perfect ninth, striking out one and throwing eight of 12 pitches for strikes.

-----

Greenville Drive 11, Columbia Fireflies (NYM) 1
Jarren Duran continued his incredible debut, leading the way in the Greenville romp. Duran was 2 for 5 with two runs scored, a stolen base, and an RBI. His hitting streak has now reached 20 games, and he is hitting .452 in seven games since a promotion from Lowell. Pedro Castellanos also continues to roll. The first baseman picked up two more hits, giving him five straight multi-hit efforts. Castellanos is 17 for 33 to start the month of August. Angel Padron cruised through six innings, allowing one run on five hits. 2017 sixth-roun pick Zach Schellenger followed with his South Atlantic League debut, striking out two in a hitless seventh inning.

-----

Lowell Spinners 5, Staten Island Yankees (NYY) 2
The teams were knotted at 1-1 through regulation, until a four-run outburst in the top of the 10th propelled the Spinners. After a Tyler Dearden base hit broke the tie, Devlin Granberg blasted a three-run homer to break the game open. It was Granberg's second hit of the night and third home run of the year, as the sixth-round pick raised his average to .315. Starter Yorvin Pantoja turned in a solid effort in the matinee, allowing just one run on three hits in five innings, striking out seven and walking three. Converted catcher Danny Bethea got the win in relief, allowing just an unearned run in two hitless innings.

-----

GCL Red Sox 10, GCL Orioles 4
The 2018 season in the GCL South Division has general consisted of the Red Sox and two other division rivals moving in and out of first place based on who has most recently gotten to beat up on the Orioles squad. After 43 games, the Sox are 15 games up on the O's and now in sole possession of first place in the division. Every member of the starting lineup recorded at least one base hit. Brandon Howlett was on base four times, going 1 for 2 with three walks and a pair of runs scored. Juan Carlos Abreu and Ricardo Cubillan turned in matching efforts out of the top two spots in the order, both going 2 for 4 with a walk and two runs scored apiece. Ryan Fernandez picked up his first pro win with a strong effort in relief, giving up just one hit in three scoreless innings while striking out six.

-----

DSL Dodgers Robinson 14, DSL Red Sox1 6
It was a rough afternoon for the Red Sox1 squad, but there were highlights on the offensive side. Leonel Jimenez had a big day, going 3 for 5 with a double, two RBI, and his 12th stolen base of the year. Carlos Sanchez, Wilker Vargas, and Lewis Baez each doubled as part of two-hit afternoons. It was the sixth double and 11th extra-base hit in 17 games for Baez.

-----

DSL Dodgers Guerrero 3, DSL Red Sox2 0
The other DSL team fell in the totally opposite way, turning in strong pitching performances but notching only three base hits. Bryan Lucas struck out five while giving up a pair of hits in two scoreless innings in his start. Robinson Parra was saddled with the loss in relief, despite giving up just one run on one hit in four innings of work. Parra struck out five and walked four. Richardson Jimenez struck out three in three innings, allowing two runs, both unearned.

-----

Player of they Day: It has been a season that has defied all conventional wisdom, as Bobby Dalbec continues to do Bobby Dalbec things at increasingly remarkaable paces. After setting the Salem franchise record in home runs in just four months, Dalbec has blasted four homers in six games since his promotion to Portland. His two homers give him 30 for the season, and 16 since June 29. To put that into perspective, his current teammate Michael Chavis led all Red Sox minor leaguers with 16 home runs for the entire 2016 season.

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

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

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

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

Featured in the cast are TJ Bolden, Myles Phillips, Chelsea Margaux Smith and Eric J. Willingham.

The design team includes William Hubner (Puppet Designer), Katelyn DeGennaro (Props) and Holly McCaffrey (Costume Assistant). Nevada Lozano is the Musical Director and Lindsay Ricketts the Stage Manager. Casting by Holly Buczek.

          Antifa, the Real Fascists The assault on Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens is just the beginning. Matthew Vadum      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/270986/antifa-real-fascists-matthew-vadum Foul-mouthed Antifa demonstrators went on a rampage August 6 as they assaulted two high-profile conservative activists at a downtown Philadelphia restaurant for being conservatives and supporters of President Trump. The attack came the day after Antifa smashed the windows at a U.S. Marine Corps recruiting office in Berkeley, Calif., during a leftist counter-protest of a “No to Marxism” rally. Twenty people were arrested. “Besides the damage to the Marine Corps post, Berkeley police also said ‘an extremist element among a large group’ damaged 21 city vehicles, setting one on fire, and slashed their tires,” Fox News reported. The incident in Pennsylvania’s biggest city also came after the leftist mayor of Portland, Ore., Ted Wheeler (D), allowed anarchy to break out in his city, instead of cracking down on Antifa troublemaking. For 38 days Wheeler, who is also police commissioner, allowed hundreds of his Antifa allies to unlawfully occupy public property at an Occupy ICE protest site that eventually became a biohazard. “I do not want the @PortlandPolice to be engaged or sucked into a conflict, particularly from a federal agency that I believe is on the wrong track,” he tweeted. “If [ICE is] looking for a bailout from this mayor, they are looking in the wrong place.” The attack in Philadelphia and other recent violent actions by Antifa are yet another reminder that the totalitarianism-loving domestic terrorists of Antifa, who call themselves anti-fascist activists, are the real fascists in today’s America because, among other things, they use violent tactics pioneered by the real-live fascist storm-troopers of Weimar Germany, the Sturmabteilung (SA). These Antifa goons opposed the Nazis but eagerly copied their tactics, using their fists to shut down political opponents and break up meetings and rallies. Some Antifa today even dress like Nazis, wearing black and red, the anarchist colors which traditionally have also been used by Nazis.

          Kachka: The Word That Saved A Family During WWII And Inspired A Chef      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
On a sunny weekday afternoon, chef Bonnie Morales leads me past the Q subway line in the Brighton Beach neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y. We are going shopping for Russian food. Morales owns Kachka , a restaurant in Portland, Ore., that serves food from the former Soviet Union. It's one of the most popular places to eat in one of the hottest food cities in the country. Now, Morales has a new cookbook — also called Kachka . Its publication inspired this jaunt to Little Odessa, the kind of neighborhood where the child of Eastern European immigrants feels at home. "Because there's such a concentration of people from the former Soviet Union," Morales explains. People like Morales' own Russian Jewish immigrant parents. (Her husband is part Mexican; her maiden name is Frumkin.) She was born in the Chicago area, and as a child in the early 1990s, her relatives flocked to the United States after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Every week, it seemed, her parents threw another party welcoming new

          What Happened In Washington State On Tuesday?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Well we still don't know all the details. Only around 70% of the votes were counted by Thursday morning in Washington's top-two jungle primaries. But in the statewide race-- Maria Cantwell's reelection-- about twice as many Democrats voted as Republicans. That filtered down to the three crucial congressional races as well. The big picture for the House is that there are 6 Democrats and 4 Republicans in the Washington House congressional delegation. None of the Democrat seats are in jeopardy. But 3 of the Republican seats are. There's a better than 50/50 chance that in January the Washington delegation will be 9 Democrats and one Republican (Dan Newhouse). These are the 4 Republican-held districts with their PVIs:
WA-03 (Jaime Herrera Beutler): R+4
WA-04 (Dan Newhouse): R+13
WA-05 (Cathy McMorris Rodgers): R+8
WA-08 (open- Dave Reichert): even
Trump won the third district with 49.9%, won the fourth district with 57.9%, won the 5th district with 52.2% and lost the 8th district 44.7%. Thursday morning, Dave Wasserman from the Cook Report tweeted that the 3 districts with big urban/rural divides as exactly where Republicans are apt to be in trouble in November and used as examples the seats occupied by Herrera Beutler (Portland suburbs), McMorris Rodgers (Spokane) and Reichert (Seattle suburbs). Wasserman and most others who follow House elections closely attribute that to "pathetic Republican turnout, which then allows anti-Trump energy in suburbs to put Democrats in contention." That was the real story in Washington on Tuesday.

In the 8th district, Republican voters coalesced around Dino Rossi and with 77.6% of the precincts counted, he was the top voter getter with 49,071. When you combine his vote with the 2 other GOP candidates, the Republican vote in the 8th district adds up to 53,,570. But when you add up all the Democratic votes you get 58,032, a big warning sign for Rossi as we head towards November. At this point, I'd bet on Kim Schrier being the next member of Congress, not Dino Rossi.

The big deal race where no one thought there would be a real battle is WA-05, the eastern third of the state. It's a huge district that includes Spokane and a lot of rural and small-town Washington and the seat is occupied by Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the highest ranking Republican in the House, a dull Trump rubber stamp. Her Trump affinity score is a stunning 97.8, one of the most disgraceful in Congress-- total Trump enabler.

Two-thirds of the WA-05 voters live in Spokane, which was represented by Lisa Brown while she was the Majority Leader of the Washington state House. When she retired from the legislature she was named chancellor of Washington State University (Spokane), where her most important achievement was building a medical school that trains doctor for rural medicine, a crucial development in the lives of the people outside Spokane. On Tuesday she stunned the district by coming within one point of McMorris Rodger-- and that was before the story of McMorris' crackpot fundraiser with Devin Nunes broke. With 78.6% of precincts counted last night (162 of 206), McMorris had 68,475 votes  (47.8%) to Brown's 67,040 (46.8%).




Back in April, the Spokesman-Review was already predicting a tight race, largely based on voters' mostly negative views of Trump.
The race between U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers and former WSU Spokane Chancellor Lisa Brown is shaping up to be a bruising race, said H. Stuart Elway of Elway Research Inc.

In a recent survey of 403 registered voters in the district, incumbent McMorris Rodgers had a 6-percentage-point lead over Brown, with 44 percent saying they plan to vote for the Republican incumbent and 38 percent saying they plan to vote for the Democratic challenger. Another 3 percent said they plan to vote for someone else, and 16 percent are undecided.

The overall poll has a margin of error of 5 percentage points, so the race is within the margin and McMorris Rodgers’ lead is “not statistically significant,” Elway said. Being under 50 percent is a worry for any incumbent.

...One of the biggest indicators of how survey respondents say they are likely to vote was their view of the job President Trump is doing. Half of the people polled said they disapprove of the job Trump is doing, while 45 percent said they approve.

When asked whether they “strongly” or “somewhat” approve or disapprove of the job he’s doing, men were about equally divided, with 26 percent saying they strongly approve and 30 percent saying they strongly disapprove.



Goal ThermometerYesterday WXLY reported that new numbers have been going better for Brown. "As of Wednesday evening, the Spokane County Elections Office announced that incumbent Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers, a Republican, had 44.25 percent of the vote while Lisa Brown, a Democrat had 50.93 percent of the vote... Typically, primary elections typically see 30 percent of voters cast their ballots at most, but yesterday some 45 percent decided to make their voices heard. “We've seen turnout just skyrocket,” shared Spokane County auditor Vicky Dalton. Please consider contributing to Brown's campaign by clicking on the 2018 Blue America congressional thermometer on the right.

Even before the new numbers had been released, the Spokesman-Review reported that Washington Republicans are in big trouble.
Up and down the long primary ballot, there were signs of unusual Democratic strength and few Republican bulwarks. They start, of course, with the 5th Congressional District, where Democratic challenger Lisa Brown is fewer than 600 votes behind incumbent Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers at the end of the first night’s count.

...In southwest Washington’s 3rd Congressional District, incumbent Republican Rep. Jamie Herrera Beutler is at 41 percent, about 5,000 votes ahead of Democrat Carolyn Long. But like Brown, Long has a lead in Clark County, the home of Vancouver, and unlike Brown, she split the Democratic vote with three other candidates.

In the 8th Congressional District-- a suburban, exurban and rural Republican stronghold of King and Pierce counties that was made even stronger in the most recent redistricting by reaching across the Cascades to add Chelan, Douglas and Kittitas counties-- Republican Dino Rossi finished on top of a crowded race for an open seat. Democrat Kim Schrier, a physician, has a lead of less than 1,400 votes for the second spot. But Democrats Jason Rittereiser, a deputy prosecutor, and Shannon Hader, a public health official, finished third and fourth, and the combined total of those three is greater than Rossi’s total at this point.

If Rossi can’t capture the seat in November, it would be the first time it wasn’t in Republican hands since it was created after the 1980 census.

...In Spokane County, Democrats fared better than they have for years in some races, particularly in the 6th Legislative District. Jessa Lewis, a single mom and former national delegate for Bernie Sanders, is nearly 500 votes ahead of Jeff Holy, former law enforcement officer and a three-term House member trying to move up to the state Senate. Kay Murano, an executive director of the Low Income Housing Consortium, is leading incumbent Republican Rep. Mike Volz, the chief deputy county treasurer, by almost 1,500 votes.

          ICE Caught on Camera Racially Profiling Latino USC in Oregon; Members of Congress Seek Apology, Answers      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Everton Bailey Jr., Oregonian, Sept. 21, 2017 - "Two Oregon lawmakers are calling for a federal investigation into the conduct of immigration agents who mistakenly approached a Latino man, demanded his name without identifying themselves and claimed he was in the country illegally.

U.S. Reps. Suzanne Bonamici and Earl Blumenauer said they were "greatly disturbed" by Isidro Andrade-Tafolla's account of what happened after he and his wife left the Washington County Courthouse on Monday morning. Andrade-Tafolla is a U.S. citizen who has worked for the county for almost 20 years in road maintenance.

The Democrats sent a letter to Elizabeth Godfrey, a regional supervisor for ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations based in Portland, saying they hope the agency apologizes to Andrade-Tafolla.

They also asked questions about ICE tactics, including how agents concealing their identity during stops improves public safety."

          2 former employees are suing Nike over alleged pay discrimination at the company (NKE)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Nike HQGetty/Natalie Behring

  • Nike is being sued by two female ex-employees who claim that they were discriminated against while working for the company, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday. 
  • The news comes just months after the departure of several leading executives and a probe into alleged improper behavior by employees.
  • The two women claim that they were paid less than their male colleagues and were not promoted fairly.

Nike is facing a lawsuit from two former employees who claim that they were discriminated against during their time at the company.

In a court case filed on Thursday in the US District Court in Portland, Oregon, the two women claim that they were paid less than their male colleagues and were unfairly sidelined for promotions. The Wall Street Journal was first to report on the lawsuit, which is seeking class-action status.

We’re stepping into a period of time when we as individuals need to ask ourselves a valid question, that requires 100% no bullshit honesty...

“What do I require to sustain long term happiness?”

Growth. Spiritual not religious growth or monetary value, status or ego based charades, we as individuals require growth on a soul level, society is not one to illuminate this truth, and people that are connected strongly to the other side are dying off because of it.

Own your power, and live your life, authentically and expansively. Spiritually speaking, I want you to blow shit up. Seriously, set this bitch on fire. So we can see your light, and remember why we never turn away from the flames of eccentricity.

10 Things to Do for August 12 by Mercury Things to Do Staff

Panic! at the Disco, Haley Kiyoko
Even if alternative pop-rock band Panic! At the Disco’s music isn’t your thing, there’s no denying they’ve got an overflowing handful of bops—such as 2016’s Sinatra-like “Death of a Bachelor.” With powerhouse singer Brendon Urie as its frontman and lots of supplemental horns and strings, Panic! dropped its sixth studio album Pray for the Wicked earlier this summer. Standouts from the 11-track project include “Dancing’s Not a Crime,” “King of the Clouds,” and “One of the Drunks.” Come for the older hits, but stay to hear Urie’s soaring vocals on his jazz-influenced new material. JENNI MOORE
7 pm, Moda Center, $38.75-68.75, all ages


Spec Script: Entourage
I know little to nothing about the TV show Entourage. (It’s about leisure suits, right?) And I’m looking forward to knowing even less about it thanks to this month’s Spec Script reading, where a local comedian (in this case the super-funny Laura Anne Whitley) pens a script for an episode of a show they have never seen. Is John Stamos on Entourage? It sort of doesn’t matter. What matters is who Whitley THINKS is on Entourage. Minority Retort’s Julia Ramos and many hilarious others help table read the glorious creation. SUZETTE SMITH
7 pm, Kelly's Olympian, $7

Deafheaven, Drab Majesty, Uniform
It can be difficult to align Deafheaven with any one genre—the band’s soft, hazy tendencies don’t quite fit into black metal, yet their harshness alienates them from shoegaze. Regardless, Deafheaven's new record Ordinary Corrupt Human Love contains the best of both genres. Throughout the album, frontman George Lesage Clarke balances melancholy and delicacy while tackling songs that seethe with frustration and rage. CERVANTE POPE
8:30 pm, Wonder Ballroom, $18-20

XRAY.FM's Heatwave: And And And, Plastic Cactus, Miss Rayon, Just Pretend, Natasha Kmeto, DJ Chanti Darling, House of Ada
The local radio station takes over the White Owl Social Club with an all-day mini-festival, featuring music from live bands and DJs, an XRAY-curated record fair with wax from an array of local shops, summer drink specials, food, and a pop-up photobooth.
2 pm, White Owl Social Club, $5-10

Tom Brosseau, Shelley Short, Tomo Nakayama
L.A.-based singer/songwriter Tom Brosseau brings his charming folk music up the coast for an intimate Portland show with support from Portland's own Shelley Short.
8 pm, Turn! Turn! Turn!, $7

The Princess Bride
This movie is 100 percent pure charm in film form. That’s not to say Rob Reiner’s adaptation of William Goldman’s bestselling novel isn’t also shot through with moments of real romance (“As you wish”) and cathartic satisfaction (“I want my father back you sonofabitch,”) but the reason this movie occupies such a precious place for so many is the charm radiating off its styrofoamy sets, through a score that sounds like it’s coming out of a Casio keyboard’s single built-in-speaker, humming under dialogue written so beautifully the actors can’t help but smile at the magic flowing out of their mouths. It proves you don’t need $200 million and two years of post-production to realize pure imagination. Not when you’ve got a big heart and all the charm in the world. BOBBY ROBERTS
2:05 & 7:15 pm, Academy Theater, $3-4, all ages

14 Things to Do for August 11 by Mercury Things to Do Staff

Portland Radler Festival
August is hot. Too hot to bike, breathe, or do anything with your life, really. Except drink beer, and there’s no beer more refreshing than a shandy or a radler. Some beer snobs may think, "adding juice to beer? What are you, a child?” And the answer to that is to flip them off and enjoy your fruity, refreshing beverage in peace with the knowledge that the summer drink has a long history in Germany, Beer’s homeland. KELLY KENOYER
noon, StormBreaker Brewing


Jack White
Okay, so Jack White’s new album Boarding House Reach isn’t very good (to be honest, I haven’t enjoyed an album of his since 2012’s Blunderbuss). But he’s still Jack White—former White Stripe and current rock ’n’ weirdo. And in true rock ’n’ roll weirdo fashion, he won’t be allowing any cell phones at this show. CIARA DOLAN
8 pm, Rose Quarter Memorial Coliseum, $40-70

Portland Timbers vs. Vancouver Whitecaps
Tonight’s Cascadia Cup matchup between the Timbers and the Whitecaps brings the Alphonso Davies farewell tour to Portland. The 17-year-old Canadian winger will finish out the season with Vancouver before making his career-altering move to European giants Bayern Munich. It’s a landmark moment for the MLS, and the chance to see one of the top prospects in the world take on the Timbers in a rivalry match at Providence Park is worthy of top billing. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
8 pm, Providence Park, $42-175

Lavender Country, Jenny Don't & the Spurs, Soft Butch
Country music is still overwhelmingly heterosexual, even with the success of openly gay acts like Little Bandit and Brandy Clark. Forty-five years ago, the situation was even worse, with the Nashville establishment opening their minds just enough to allow an African American artist Charley Pride through the gates. Stepping out of the closet and onstage at the Grand Ole Opry? That would have been a death sentence. That’s what makes the lone album by Seattle outfit Lavender Country such a remarkable outlier. Released initially as a private press LP in 1973, it was the first gay country album ever, beating out Peter Grudzien’s The Unicorn by a year. But where Grudzien’s work was steeped in the psych-folk underground of his New York home, led by singer/songwriter Patrick Haggerty, Lavender Country attempted to keep up with the sleepy honky tonk balladry and jumped-up boot-stompers of the time. Even though the band played shows up and down the West Coast, Lavender Country didn’t make a dent in the cultural consciousness of the time. Haggerty hung up his spurs for the next four decades, concentrating on activism and raising a family. The project has finally gotten its due in recent years, thanks to a reissue of the album by North Carolina label Paradise of Bachelors, which has inspired Haggerty to dust off his guitar and cowboy hat and play shows around the US. The messages in the music sadly still resonate to a modern audience, but they no longer have to be delivered from the shadows. ROBERT HAM
9 pm, The Fixin' To, $10

Summer Cannibals, Mini Blinds
Summer Cannibals have been living proof of the greatness of Portland’s indie rock scene since releasing their 2013 debut No Makeup. The band has grown into their moody rock ’n’ roll sound on two full-lengths released on their own record label, and another on iconic Portland label Kill Rock Stars. Summer Cannibals’ unapologetic, empowered lyrics, fuzzed-out guitar riffs, and power-pop hooks will get stuck in your head all day. DELANEY MOTTER
5 pm, Green Noise Records, free, all ages

Ganja & Hess
One of the more unique takes on vampire mythology ever filmed, 1973’s Ganja & Hess returns to theaters for the first time in a few decades with this “director’s cut” version that restores the breadth of director Bill Gunn’s vision of the film, which was commissioned to be a cheap Blacula ripoff. Gunn was not interested in being a party to something so simple, and instead took the $350,000, cast Night of the Living Dead’s Duane Jones, and made a fever-dream of existential horror. Producers saw all this monologuing and angst linking scenes of sex and violence, decided that about 40 minutes of all that could just go away, and proceeded to hack the film down to 76 minutes. All that stuff is back now, and the already rich, kaleidoscopic messiness is just that much deeper. BOBBY ROBERTS
9:30 pm, NW Film Center's Whitsell Auditorium, $8-9

Bizarre Love Triangle: '80s New Wave & Synth Pop
DJs Gregarious, The Art of Hot, and Narcissus My Reflection dig into their crates and pull out only the finest in new wave and synth pop for your listening pleasure. Hosted by Anna Jenkins.
9 pm, The Liquor Store, $6

1939 Ensemble, Blue Cranes, Amenta Abioto, DJ Derek Smith
The Portland-based instrumental quartet known for playing a blend of percussion-driven krautrock, post-rock, and jazz return to Mississippi Studios to unleash their brand new full-length. Fellow locals Blue Cranes, Amenta Abioto, and KMHD DJ Derek Smith round out the proceedings.
9 pm, Mississippi Studios, $10-12

Eternal Summers, Souvenir Driver
The Roanoke-based trio bring their dreamy and shapeshifting indie rock and pop back through Portland for a headlining show supporting their latest full-length, Every Day It Feels Like I'm Dying​.​.​..
9:30 pm, Bunk Bar, $12-14

Farm to Fork Dinner
A dinner benefitting Portland State University's Learning Gardens Lab, featuring a multi-course meal prepared by PSU Eats Executive Chef Matt Steele, made from freshly grown produce at the Learning Gardens. Dinner includes wine and beer pairings, live entertainment, and live storytelling from PSU students.
6 pm, Learning Gardens Laboratory, $75

Willow
Solo: A Star Wars Story was not the first Lucasfilm project Ron Howard directed. In 1987, George Lucas, who created a world-changing film series 10 years prior because he couldn't get the rights to Flash Gordon, asked Howard to replicate that phenomenon after not getting the rights to Lord of the Rings. Thus: Willow, starring Warwick Davis and Val Kilmer as pseudo-Frodo and Asshole Aragorn, off to fight evil witches, skull-faced enforcers, and rescue baby princesses. Willow is an ungainly little family film, pinballing between pulp fantasy, awkward romance, cornball kid's flick (ugh, the fucking Brownies), and Harryhausen-esque adventure, but thanks to Kilmer's charm, Davis' pluck, and one hell of a score from James Horner, Willow—while getting nowhere near the resonance of Lord of the Rings, ends up being a mostly-okay fantasy pastiche. BOBBY ROBERTS
7:30 pm, Hollywood Theatre, $7-9

That's What She Said: Emotional Labor Day
What better way to celebrate summer than to enjoy some brilliant comedy by feminist comedy collective, That’s What She Said. Hear from Dannie Rae Cannon, Samhita Reddy, Shannon Sales, and Katie Piatt amongst others and rest easy knowing your dollars are going directly to a local nonprofit serving immigrants and refugees.
7 pm, Siren Theater, $10

Belly
The beloved '90s alternative rock and jangle pop quartet fronted by former Throwing Muses and Breeders member Tanya Donelly return to the Revolution Hall Stage in support of Dove, the band's first new album since 1995's King.
8 pm, Revolution Hall, $30-35

Dylan Carlson, Mary Lattimore
If instrumental music were a coin, Dylan Carlson and Mary Lattimore would be its two sides. Carlson is from the Pacific Northwest, he's old enough to have roomed with Kurt Cobain, and he has spent the past couple of decades wrangling doomed drones and dusky tones out of his guitar in an effort to explore the fringes of American sound. His main gig, Earth, is one of the most influential heavy instrumental bands in recent memory, and his new album Conquistador is his first under his own name. Lattimore is from the East Coast, she’s a rising young talent, and her exquisite and ethereal approach to the harp has made her an in-demand accompanist for artists like Sharon Van Etten, Kurt Vile, and Jarvis Cocker. Her new-agey new album Hundreds of Days is one of the prettiest and most calming releases of 2018—a year when pretty and calming music is so very welcome.
9 pm, Doug Fir, $12

12 Things to Do for August 10 by Mercury Things to Do Staff

Shabazz Palaces, Stas THEE Boss
Ishmael Butler and Tendai Maraire of Seattle hip-hop duo Shabazz Palaces are masters of abstract texture and otherworldly sonic drift. On 2017’s Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star and Quazarz vs. the Jealous Machines, Butler trips through a world that has mistaken the map for the territory. When this strange dream of a universe clarifies and coheres, Butler can flip the modern nightmare into something sublime. CHRIS STAMM
9 pm, Doug Fir, $20


Hop Along, Thin Lips
Hop Along dropped their fourth studio album Bark Your Head Off, Dog in April, and it delivers more of what fans have come to love about the Philadelphia indie rock titans: big hooks, lyrics that cut to the emotional core, and Frances Quinlan’s shapeshifting vocals, with the folksy addition of strings warming up the edges of the band’s heart-swelling anthems.
9 pm, Wonder Ballroom, $16-20, all ages

Stumptown Improv Festival
Stumptown Improv Festival is one of Portland’s best comedy festivals (maybe the best, but we don’t compare Hattori Hanzō swords). I’m continually impressed by the way the Stumptown team ups the ante each year, while keeping the energy high and their hearts pure. Celebrating its fifth year, Stumptown’s lineup looks appropriately awesome with the ridiculously good troupe White Women making their way up from LA and NY hip-hop group North Coast doing their own version of improv Hamilton (whaaat?). SUZETTE SMITH

Corrina Repp, Luke Wyland
xIt took an ill-fated cross-country migration, a nomadic songwriting regimen in northern France, Los Angeles, and Louisville, Kentucky, and some intense introspection for Corrina Repp to come to terms with the pitfalls of failed romance. And on her fifth solo album, How a Fantasy Will Kills Us All, she bares the soul she took along for that journey. Engineered by Danny Seim of Menomena, the record bends and moans in all the right ways, utilizing loop-laced soundscapes as the bedrock for Repp’s beautifully resonant lyrics. With tinges of experimental folk and art-pop, grizzled ambient layers permeate the fringes of songs like “Need You/Don’t Need You” and the cathartic title track. Shades of Repp’s brilliant collaborative work with Joe Haege in the yesteryear Portland project Tu Fawning abound—a creative palette that suits Repp’s brooding lo-fi psych well. Rejoice in tonight’s record release show as Repp performs solo in the cozy confines of Beacon Sound. RYAN J. PRADO
8 pm, Beacon Sound, free

Jenn Champion, My Body, Briana Marela
Last month, Jenn Champion (the musician formerly known as S) dropped her new record Single Rider, which she wanted to be “a cross between Drake and Billy Joel.” Thankfully, it’s not—instead, Champion makes a screeching left turn away from the introspective pop-punk of S to turn her attention toward smooth, glimmering synth-pop made in collaboration with Seattle producer SYML. With echoing drum machine beats, airy vocals, and simple yet straightforward lyrics about the blurred line between infatuation and love, the album’s 13 tracks conjure strobe-lit dancefloors and drives along the coast at sunset with the windows down (especially standouts like “O.M.G. (I’m All Over It)” and “The Move”). CIARA DOLAN
9 pm, Mississippi Studios, $12-14

Mondo Trasho: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
The last great (ish) thing Terry Gilliam ever did, his adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's gonzo travelogue is probably the closest anyone ever got to lifting the lid on Thompson's dome and accurately portraying the nest of writhing, hyper-aggressive lizards screaming, shitting, and fucking behind his eyeballs. It's also one of the few movies about being fundamentally altered that works best while seen stone sober. Sure, people love getting ripped out of their fucking gourd and putting on the Johnny and Benicio show (btw: this is also probably the last great thing Depp ever did, too), but the real power of Gilliam's work is in how he manages to translate the feeling of Hunter's astronomical fucked-upitude to utterly straight, square minds. BOBBY ROBERTS
7:30 pm, Hollywood Theatre, $7-9

Beach House, Sound of Ceres
Since Victoria LeGrand first sang about “heartbreak and ponytails” over Alex Scally’s bewitching guitar tones on Beach House’s 2006 debut, the Baltimore duo has proven themselves to be masters of a new kind of woozy dream-pop. It hasn’t evolved too much since then, but that’s a good thing—the band’s new album 7 more or less follows the same formula, with warped electro-pop melodies floating behind LeGrand’s voice, which somehow always seems detached but intense.
8 pm, Keller Auditorium, $27.50-35, all ages

Usnea, Amarok, Hell
Over the past couple of years, Usnea’s sound has progressed into an introspective realm while preserving their signature downcast dissonance, a supreme sonic representation of the blight of modern humanity. CERVANTE POPE
9 pm, Tonic Lounge, $7-10

High on the Hog
A cannabis-themed outdoor all-you-can-eat pig-roast as presented by Paley's Place. What does "cannabis-themed" mean in this case? Its not just a bunch of pot leaves everywhere. The pig they're roasting was raised on raw cannabis at Moto Perpetuo Farm, and the drinks by Coalition and Ablis are CBD-infused.
5 pm, Paley's Place, $85

Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers
The singer/songwriter and keyboardist known for his improvisational live performances returns to Revolution Hall with his backing band in tow.
8 pm, Revolution Hall, $42.50-45

8th Annual Independence Bollywood Dance Party
Jai Ho knows how to throw down, and the 8th anniversary of their Independence Bollywood Party celebrating India and Pakistan's freedom is going to be one of the grandest examples of the positive party vibes they're known for.
9 pm, XV, $7-10

Good morning, Portland! Man, the air quality sure seems off today, huh? It's going to get up to 90 today, but there's a small chance of rain over the weekend that could be our salvation. Let's get to the news!

Trump's national security team scrambled to set up an agreement on NATO ahead of last month's summit in a semi-successful attempt to prevent the president from undermining the decades long alliance. In other words: members of his own team are working behind his back to help him succeed.

Congratulations to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for 25 years on the court! May she have at least six more.


Deportation halted mid-flight: A refugee mother and her young daughter are plaintiffs in a case against the government related to changes in who is allowed to apply for asylum. The feds deported them in the middle of the case, and upon finding out, Judge Emmet Sullivan ordered that the plane they were on turn around and come back to the US.

Prosecutors are expected to rest their case in the Paul Manafort trial today after several weeks of detailed testimony from bookkeepers on the man's messy finances. The defense may begin its arguments today or Monday, and the focus will surely be on how Rick Gates, Manafort's right hand man, is an unreliable witness.

Melania Trump's parents just became US citizens thanks to Trump's favorite bogeyman: chain migration. Oh right, this is the Trump administration: family-based migration is only a problem if you aren't white.

A protester at city hall hit a man in the face with a pole yesterday after an argument about the protesters taking up too much of the sidewalk. The protester was arrested, and police gave remaining protesters a warning for "improper sidewalk use."


Four women have filed a lawsuit against Nike for gender discrimination and sexual harassment. The lawsuit alleges that Nike did nothing about men in its ranks who sexually harassed and assaulted their co-workers—some men were even promoted after such allegations had come out.

A 16-year-old girl has broken ribs and a punctured lung after a woman shoved her off the Washington Bridge, which she was hesitating to jump off of.

Portland has required that e-scooter companies in its pilot program give back to the community in some way. One of the e-scooter companies, Skip, has an equity plan that includes feeding homeless people after they return scooters to their charging centers.

That's all folks! We hope you have a great weekend and stay cool. By the way.... Did you know there's a critter called a werewolf mouse? It's adorable and a stone-cold killer.

          Wheeler and Outlaw: Allies of the Klan?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by Anonymous

Not for the first time, I, a lifelong Portlander, worker, and grandmother, feel morally bound to confront the willful blindness of City Hall, and the overt despotism of the Portland Police, regarding their unrelenting support of violent criminals at the expense of Portland residents.

My daughter supports the antifascist cause, and as a believer in democracy and human rights, so do I. Throughout more than a year of protesting PP, and the Proudboys, I have never witnessed the police do ANYTHING to support the community they claim to serve. Instead, they treat us like an enemy army, attacking us with the very weapons and training for which we, the tax base, have paid.

Meanwhile, the Proudboys troll our streets, abducting, assaulting, raping and torturing anyone they feel like victimizing. They claim to stand for "freedom of speech". Since when is RAPE a constitutionally protected form of speech? Assault? Attempted murder? Who invades the hometown of whom? Do atifa volunteers go into other people's communtites, armed and eager to inflict harm?! NO!!!

We protest against their violence, not their conspicuously absent "patriotism", and you, Mayor and Police, inflict still more violence upon us.

Shame on you.
