          The Fuller Brush Credo      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Fuller Brush Company was ahead of its time.

It's well known for the army of door to door salesmen that peddled its wide range of brushes, brooms, and other associated goods.

For a time, "the Fuller Brush Man" was synonymous with salesman. It didn't hurt that a movie of that name was made in 1948, starring Red Skelton and another one named The Fuller Brush Girl was made in 1950 with Lucille Ball.

And as you can imagine, selling brushes out of a suitcase or car trunk was hard work that required tenacity and creativity.

But more than their sales techniques, the company was legendary for its guarantee:


Make it work, 

make it last, 
and guarantee it.
No matter what.


Other companies have since offered a no-haggle guarantee, but it was The Fuller Brush Company that stated it so plainly and made it the credo of the company.

Every employee knew what it stood for; every customer knew what it meant. We should all be so succinct in our messaging.

But more than that, the secret weapon in Alfred C. Fuller's possession was how he hired and trained his salesforce. It was all about the culture at The Fuller Brush Company. Because he knew that every employee needed to be held to the same high standards he held himself to when he started the company in 1906.

Insisting on uncompromising integrity, Alfred Fuller made every salesperson sign what was called The Pledge of the Fuller Brush Man. They pledged to “realize that my obligation is one of service to the customer, to the company I represent and to the community in which I live and work.” Each Fuller Brush Man also swore: “I will be courteous; I will be kind; I will be sincere; I will be helpful.”

Now think about the last experience you had in which your expectations were not met and you raised a concern. Were you triaged to another department or employee, or was that employee authorized to handle your issue?

Companies that are the best in customer service – Disney Parks, Zappos, Nordstrom, and more – train all of their employees to handle customer service needs. It doesn't matter if it's not their department, if they aren't customer service representatives, or if they have no knowledge of a particular product.

At great companies, the customer is everyone's responsibility.

And along with the simplicity of message like Fuller Brush credo – make it work, make it last, guarantee it, no matter what – that's really all you need to create repeat customers who'll tell the world about you.

          Random Thoughts as Parts of the Schedule are Revealed       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
 The NBA loves to tease.  They have released the first week and the holiday games.  The whole schedule should be released on Friday.  They seem to be leaning heavily on reviving the Celtics/Sixers rivalry.  Celtics will face the Sixers on opening night and again on Christmas day.  The Celtics will also face the Raptors during opening week.  It looks like national games will feature a lot of both the Lakers and the Sixers if the first week and Christmas mean anything. 


The Sixers have a nice young core and some people are saying they will finish ahead of the Celtics, but I don't think they are anywhere near as good as the Celtics will be.  The playoff series between these two teams wasn't all that close, and that was without Kyrie and Hayward.  Plus,  the Sixers lost some of their depth when they lost Belinelli and Ilyasova.   The big question is whether they will release the confetti in another loss this season.

I was listening to Colin Cowherd today, something I don't do a lot since most of the time he is talking about how great LeBron is and I really hate that.  But today,  he was talking about the Celtics and he predicted that the Celtics will beat Golden State to win the championship this season.  That surprised me.  He usually picks LeBron but I guess even he can't pretend that this Lakers' team is going to be a contender. 

That Christmas Lakers/Warriors show down may end up being a total blowout and decided by the end of the first quarter unless the refs can somehow keep it competitive.  Another question I am wondering about is why the Knicks are always featured on Christmas day no matter how bad they are.  I would have thought that a Raptors/Spurs matchup would have had way more interest and intrigue. 

The Athletic reported that Aron Baynes and Al Horford have pretty much stayed in Boston this summer, taking advantage of the new state of the art practice facility.  They also reveal that the team is very excited about getting an early start on the season.  Players are planning to come back to Boston to workout together before the start of training camp.  I remember back to 2007 when the players were that excited and all came to Boston early.  Let's hope we have the same result as they did that season.

Like most NBA fans, I'm missing watching my team play basketball.  All these little tidbits being tossed out have me so excited for the season.  Kyrie, Hayward and Theis all expect to be 100% by training camp.  Playing without them last season gave the young guys a chance to shine and improve.  I can't wait to see Jayson Tatum after a season of lifting, playing with Kobe and Drew Hanlan.  It's going to be a fun season!  Just 47 days until the first preseason game.   GOOOOOO Celtics!!!!

Online dating isn't easy, and now we have the data to prove it.

A new study, published in the journal Science Advances Wednesday — which analyzed data from a pool of tens of thousands of online dating profiles in New York, Boston, Seattle, and Chicago — found that people consistently message potential mates who are out of their league.

What a shock.

Study authors Elizabeth Bruch and Mark Newman pulled information from profiles and plugged it into an algorithm which took into account age, education, gender, and race/ethnicity in relation to the number of messages received among heterosexual individuals. Read more...

          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.

          Kurt Cobain: "Republicans Are An Incarnation Of Satan. I Hate Them"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I know they don't teach basic civics in school any longer, but I'm old enough to have learned that we are a country of immigrants and that America was great because it was a melting pot-- even better than Canada which was disparaged as a mosaic in comparison. When Trump unchains his in-house neo-Nazi co-conspirator, Stephen Miller, and allows him to turn his energy (and bigotry) against legal immigrants, the Regime is directly attacking every family in the country. Remember when you read below, that Miller was the brilliant strategist behind family separation and border kidnappings. Yesterday the Jewish Daily Forward warned its readers that Miller's new plan stops citizenship for legal immigrants. The story originates with Julia Ainsley at NBC News, explaining how the Trumpist regime plans to "make it harder for legal immigrants to become citizens or get green cards if they have ever used a range of popular public welfare programs, including Obamacare."

And they plan to institute this newest Miller attack against America without congressional approval. He's drafting a plan that would target "immigrants living legally in the U.S. who have ever used or whose household members have ever used Obamacare, children's health insurance, food stamps and other benefits."
Immigration lawyers and advocates and public health researchers say it would be the biggest change to the legal immigration system in decades and estimate that more than 20 million immigrants could be affected. They say it would fall particularly hard on immigrants working jobs that don't pay enough to support their families.

Many are like Louis Charles, a Haitian green-card holder seeking citizenship who, despite working up to 80 hours a week as a nursing assistant, has had to use public programs to support his disabled adult daughter.

Using some public benefits like Social Security Insurance has already hindered immigrants from obtaining legal status in the past, but the programs included in the recent draft plan could mean that immigrant households earning as much as 250 percent of the poverty level could be rejected.

...Miller, along with several of his former congressional colleagues who now hold prominent positions in the Trump administration, have long sought to decrease the number of immigrants who obtain legal status in the U.S. each year. And even before the rule is in place, the administration has made it more difficult for immigrants to gain green cards and for green-card holders to gain citizenship.

[Note: Miller was never in Congress, although he worked for several Republican racists and xenophobes-- Jeff Sessions, Michele Bachmann, Dave Brat and John Shadegg.]



Charles, the Haitian green-card holder who works as a nursing assistant in a psychiatric hospital near Boston, said he was stunned to learn his application for citizenship had been denied. He had used a fake passport given to him by smugglers when he entered the U.S. from Haiti in 1989, but confessed to border officers and received a waiver from USCIS absolving him of his wrongdoing and allowing him to obtain a green card in 2011.

Now 55, Charles is a homeowner and a taxpayer and thought obtaining citizenship would be a smooth process. "I thought in this country everything was square and fair," Charles said.

But when he went for his citizenship interview in August 2017, the USCIS officers told him they were going to revisit the decision to waive the fake passport incident, meaning he could potentially lose his green card as well.

Then he received a letter in September telling him his request for citizenship had been denied.

He appealed the decision, but as he waits for a final verdict, his lawyer says his green-card status may also now be in question.

In late November, the Trump administration announced they would end temporary protected status for Haitians who came to the U.S. after the deadly 2010 earthquake. Charles's wife was a recipient of that protection and without him becoming a citizen, he would be unable to vouch for her.

But Charles's biggest concern is his daughter. Although she is in her 20s and a U.S. citizen, she has severe disabilities that make it impossible for her to live by herself.

Charles is unaware of Miller's new plan to limit citizenship for immigrants who have used public assistance. But it is likely to affect him because he has used public assistance to help care for his daughter, so she could end up further hurting his chances for citizenship.

Though its effects could be far-reaching, the proposal to limit citizenship to immigrants who have not used public assistance does not appear to need Congressional approval. As the Clinton administration did in 1999, the Trump administration would be redefining the term "public charge," which first emerged in immigration law in the 1800s in order to shield the U.S. from burdening too many immigrants who could not contribute to society.

..."Any policy forcing millions of families to choose between the denial of status and food or health care would exacerbate serious problems such as hunger, unmet health needs, child poverty, and homelessness, with lasting consequences for families' wellbeing and long-term success and community prosperity," said the National Immigration Law Center in a statement.
There's a Kurt Cobain quote-- a fake Kurt Cobain quote, as it turns out-- being circulated on the Internet. I know it's fake because Danny Goldberg, the manager of Cobain's band, Nirvana, decided to write about it this week at The Nation. The fake quote, which was first posted on the Trump Train Facebook page asserted that Cobain predicted "We’ll elect a true outsider. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a business tycoon… Someone like Donald Trump." Danny set the record straight:
I know that the quote is not only made up but it is also a grotesque perversion of Kurt’s beliefs. He often differentiated Nirvana from more overtly political punk bands like Dead Kennedys and Fugazi, but Kurt was unambiguous about where his political sentiments lay and, although he identified with anarchist imagery in some contexts, Kurt had no problem making choices at election time.

I remember the excitement in his voice when he called to tell me that he and Courtney Love had just contributed $100 each to Jerry Brown’s campaign for president in the Democratic primary in 1992. A few months later, Sergio Marchi, an Argentinian journalist, asked Kurt if he planned to vote in the general election, and Kurt answered “Yeah, I’ll vote for Clinton. The Democrats are very conservative but at least they are not as conservative as the Republicans.” Regarding the billionaire businessman third-party candidate Ross Perot, Kurt was equally clear: “The guy sucks. He’s rich; I don’t trust him as president.”

After the election, in an interview for The Advocate, Kurt elaborated: “I was helpless when I was 12 and Reagan was elected and there was nothing I could do about it. But now this generation is growing up and they’re in their mid-20s and they’re not putting up with it. I would rather have had Jerry Brown but I’m definitely happy that Clinton is in…. Chelsea seems like a pretty neat person, a Birkenstock wearing kid,” adding “Amy Carter’s pretty cool too from what I’ve heard. She’s been seen at Butthole Surfers concerts.”

Trump’s misogynistic attitude towards women would have deeply offended Kurt, who detested bullies and sexists. Explaining the lyrics to his song “In Bloom” when Nirvana’s breakthrough album Nevermind was released, Kurt was explicit: “I don’t like rednecks, I don’t like macho men, I don’t like abusive people.”

I suspect that Kurt would also have been appalled by the idea of a reality-TV star becoming president. In his famous chorus to “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Kurt sang, “With the lights out, it’s less dangerous, here we are now, entertain us.” He was not endorsing hypnotic passivity, he was satirizing it. As those who program Trump-supporting bots know, apathy and cynicism help discourage some people from voting, a syndrome that inevitably helps Republicans.

...To make his values clear Kurt wrote in the liner notes of the Nirvana compilation Incesticide, “I have a request for our fans. If any of you in any way hate homosexuals, people of different color, or women, please do this one favor for us-- leave us the fuck alone! Don’t come to our shows and don’t buy our records.”

No one can know for sure how Kurt would view the coming mid-terms, but he did say in that Argentinian interview that he did just before the 1992 election: “Republicans are an incarnation of Satan. I hate them.”

About a year and a half ago we put up a Mystery Movie post about THE BODY, an Independent Artists release from 1981 that we could find no additional information about. Some people wrote in and suggested that it was the Lugi Scattini erotic thriller I CORPO/THE BODY (1974), while John Charles of Video Watchdog smartly theorized that, given that graphic and a tag line hinting at a metamorphosis of some kind, it could be a reissue of León Klimovsky’s sci-fi gender-bender I HATE MY BODY (1974). Wellllll, just last week our friend Bill Van Ryn of Groovy Doom, "The ghastly home of horror fanzine Drive-In Asylum," sent us the newspaper ad below...

          Patriots, Brady close to deal to restructure contract — again      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The New England Patriots are set to make adjustments to Tom Brady’s contract, two sources confirmed to the Boston Herald. 

The Patriots are expected to add a variety of performance-based incentives to Brady’s deal worth about $5 million

Brady was due to make $15 million in cash in 2018, which put him behind quarterbacks like Jimmy Garoppolo, Kirk Cousins, Drew Brees, Blake Bortles, Alex Smith, Eli Manning, and Aaron Rodgers.

Brady, the reigning NFL MVP, is signed through the 2019 season. 

He threw for 4,577 yards and 32 touchdowns a year ago, leading the Patriots to the Super Bowl.

Brady demolished his own Super Bowl record with 505 passing yards in a 41-33 loss to the Eagles in February.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported the news.

          Comment on The Mysterious Case of CCC 2358 on objectively disordered homosexual inclinations by roseannesullivan      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
One of the myths promoted by homosexual proponents is that people who act out on homosexual feelings are created that way. That is not true. We are all tempted by sin, and we get conditioned to sinful acts by giving into them. The first impulse of attraction to anyone you aren't married to needs to be recognized for what it is, a temptation to sin. Anecdotes aren't scientific proof but I have a few to the point. Two boys in my high school were "different." I ran into them a few years later outside a restaurant in Boston's Chinaton dressed as women soliciting male clients. They weren't pursuing love. They were driven by their practice of their unnatural attraction into engaging in more and more vice. My freshman year in college I got close to a bright, handsome junior who the other male students envied because he was able to seduce women, at a time when most women still were saving themselves for marriage. Soon, he started having uncommitted sex with many men, dabbling in prostitution and pornography. He wanted the pleasure of being pursued by men with no commitment. Women he had seduced had kept threatening to commit suicide if they could not have him exclusively. He wanted to be desired and didn't want love and commitment. He pursued homosexual vice for the pleasure and excitement and even the sordidness of it. The last time I talked to him was in a phone call after I was married with children who were 10 and 12 at the time, and he had to nerve to tell me he wished he could get a hold of my kids and free them from the sexually repressive Catholic teachings he believed I was brainwashing them with. Another young woman I know started acting as a lesbian because men weren't attracted to her. Later in her life she lost a few pounds and became attractive to both sexes. Now she presents herself as a crusader for bi-sexual acceptance. None of these practicing homosexuals were biologically destined to disordered attractions.

GODZINA: 1:07 DYSCYPLINA: Baseball MECZ: Toronto Blue Jays vs Boston Red Sox TYP: 2 KURS: 1.63 BUKMACHER: LvBet ANALIZA: Mecz pomiędzy 1 drużyną a 10 drużyną American League. Będzie to 3 mecz z rzędu tych drużyn. W dwóch poprzednich górą byli zawodnicy z Bostonu. W pierwszym meczu wygrali 10:7 a w drugim 10:5. W obu meczach byli dużo lepsi od swoich przeciwników. Toronto wygrali tylko 4 na 10 ostatnich meczy. Boston wygrał 9 na 10 ostatnich meczy. Red Sox w swoim składzie mają niesamowitych zawodników takich jak Mookie Betts (faworyt do MVP ligi) czy J.D. Martinez (najwięcej Home Runów w lidze). Toronto nie może pochwalić się takimi zawodnikami. Prawdę mówiąc jeżeli Boston w tym roku nie zdobędzie mistrzostwa to będę niesamowicie zaskoczony. Miotaczem Bostonu będzie Rick Porcello (14-4) jeden z najlepszych miotaczy Bostonu. Jego ERA wynosi 3.84. Po drugiej stronie miotaczem będzie (1-2) dla którego jest to pierwszy rok w lidze. Najmłodszy nie jest ale widać w nim potencjał i myślę że za pare lat będzie czołowym miotaczem ligi. Jego ERA wynosi 2.30. Wczoraj niestety Tampa zawiodła i minimalnie przegrała przerywając serie 7 trafionych typów z rzędu. Dziś mam nadzieje że wszytko pójdzie zgodnie z planem i rozpoczniemy kolejną serie trafień.

          Someday this tiny spider bot could perform surgery inside your body      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A team of Harvard University researchers recently achieved a major breakthrough in robotics, engineering a tiny spider robot using tech that could one day work inside your body to repair tissues or destroy tumors. Their work could not only change medicine–by eliminating invasive surgeries–but could also have an impact on everything from how industrial machines are maintained to how disaster victims are rescued.

Until now, most advanced, small-scale robots followed a certain model: They tend to be built at the centimeter scale and have only one degree of freedom, which means they can only perform one movement. Not so with this new ‘bot, developed by scientists at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and Boston University. It’s built at the millimeter scale, and because it’s made of flexible materials–easily moved by pneumatic and hydraulic power–the critter has an unprecedented 18 degrees of freedom.

It’s smaller and more dexterous than any of its tiny robotic peers–a significant step toward robots that will be able to perform tasks inside the human body.

The engineers call the new technology MORPH, an acronym for Microfluidic Origami for Reconfigurable Pneumatic/Hydraulic. Using it to create a spider–or any other robotic critter–involves three different fabrication techniques. First, micro-lasers cut out 12 layers of material, which are glued together to create the body and arms of the spider. Second, soft lithography draws a complex network of microscopic channels inside those layers; these little “veins” move the spider as fluid or air are pumped through them. Finally, some parts of the ‘bot are hardened to make its basic shape permanent.

According to Sheila Russo, co-author of the study, their little monster can alter its structure, move, and even change colors. It seemed appropriate to test it by creating a replica of the colorful, millimeter-size Australian peacock spider.

While the promise of their spider is huge, Boston University assistant professor and co-author Tommaso Ranzani says its current form isn’t designed for medical applications. It’s more of a way to showcase its abilities. “However, we believe soft robotic technologies have a great potential in overcoming current challenges in minimally invasive surgery,” he said over email. One day, they could be ideal candidates to “manipulate and interact with the most delicate tissues in the body,” such as veins, arteries, and even nerves, after being deployed from a conventional surgical tool. They could also administer drugs or do biopsies.

But Ranzani also believes that similar micro-bots could be helpful in environmental settings, and could maintain industrial facilities and even assist in space exploration. “[The spider] robot is a first demonstration of the manufacturing capabilities that this process enables,” he says. “And we believe it will pave the way to a new generation of soft micro-robots that can exploit their small scale, and deformable and resilient bodies, to explore highly unstructured and complex environments for applications ranging from safe and delicate manipulation of tissues inside the human body to search and rescue.”

Imagine a legion of robots cleaning a rocket engine and fixing microfactures, or looking for survivors in a building destroyed by an earthquake and providing first aid–or even just doing a clean sweep to clear clogged arteries inside a human body. I need a platoon of them, stat.


          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.”

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.”

Nicholas Kollerstrom: In Solidarity with Alex Jones—A transitional occurrence in state-sponsored terror — nobody died in an exercise with crisis actors
Mr. President,
The ‘Sandy Hook’ event was a great transitional moment in modern state-fabricated terror. Before it, we had events such as 9/11 and the London bombings of 2005, in which a lot of people died. After it, there are mockup events with actors and fake blood, which are a lot cheaper and easier to arrange. Since 2012 state-terror events have used crisis actors. This is alas the main art-form of the 21st century, whereby the ‘Deep State’ gets its wars going.
Before Sandy Hook, there would be ‘drills’ or ‘wargames’ which were arranged to synchronize with the event: the perpetrators would cause them to ‘go live’ so that real terror then took place. Thereby the State was able to blame some external Enemy, for what it had done. But things changed in 2012 with mere actors and dummies being used to scare everyone. The Sandy Hook nightmare killer ‘Adam Lanza’ never existed, he was just a mockup. The town of Newtown had received a grant from Homeland Security to run the drill. But, the drama of the event acquired a bit too much realism and spilled over into newspaper headlines.
There were for example no bullet marks in any school classroom, no bodies of little kids taken by ambulance into hospitals – none of that happened: there were just a load of crisis actors, and A LOT of state money going into Newtown to keep everyone quiet.
Those families in Newtown were not real. The kids existed, but they were several years older than the pictures we all saw: many of those ‘dead’ kids were rewarded by appearing at the Super Bowl concert with Beyoncé months later. It was pointed out that they were evidently the same but about twelve years of age.
Of the twenty families involved with the children, all were home-owners in Newtown. Many had just moved in before the event and all had their mortgages paid off shortly before. That was a key part of the process whereby they were manipulated to go along with the story.
Mr. President, it is your business to appoint someone who can detail all those fake families who came together in Newton, and examine birth and death certificates, school records, etc. Get a full statement from the FBI, whose records clearly state that they recorded NO murders in the Newtown area over that period. You yourself make no statement on the matter – that would be too dangerous and explosive – but you set in motion investigations of REAL IDENTITY – the people behind the actors.
The Boston Marathon bombing of 2013, another state-fabricated event in which nobody died, used crisis actors who were amputees. The initial images showed missing arms and legs, but no blood, which would be impossible had this been real. Its aim was to demonize Muslims, that being the common objective of 21st-century state-fabricated terror, whereas the Sandy Hook mock-terror event, by contrast, had the special and unique purpose of promoting gun control.
It is your business to protect the American people from unreal nightmares which cause people especially mothers and children to live in fear. It is your business to make it crystal-clear that any terror-drills which the DHS may fund do under no circumstances switch over into ‘going live’ ever again.
Very respectfully,
Nicholas Kollerstrom

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

Tom Huizenga

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(图片说明:2018年6月的气温与1951-1980年平均气温的对比,来自推特@SimonLeeWx

今天夏天,全球高温创纪录。日本韩国都是史上最高温,西班牙葡萄牙接近48度的欧洲高温纪录,北纬71度的一个挪威城市32度。要知道,北极圈是北纬66.5度,这就是说北极圈里面也是高温。上图是今年6月的气温与40年前的平均气温比较,可以看到都是偏高的,尤其是南北极远远偏高。

全球变暖已经是活生生的现实。科学家估计,目前的年平均气温比工业革命前已经升高了1度。《巴黎气候协议》的目标是,气温升高控制在2度,但是成功的希望据说只有5%。如果学过统计学,你就知道,5%的机会在统计学上可以视作不会发生。

千万不要觉得,2度不算什么,《纽约时报》描述了后果。

  • 升高2度:热带珊瑚礁灭绝,海平面上升几米,波斯湾不适合人类居住。
  • 升高3度:北极的森林和大多数沿海城市被淹没。
  • 升高4度:欧洲永久干旱, 中国、印度和孟加拉国大部分地区变成沙漠,美国科罗拉多河接近干涸,美国西南部将不适合居住。
  • 升高5度:人类文明终结。

联合国气候官员称,如果不采取任何行动,目前乐观的估计是全球会升高3度。

气温升高的主要原因是,人类大量消耗化石能源,温室气体(主要是二氧化碳)排放急剧增加。所谓温室气体,就是这一类气体有温室效应,可以让阳光进入温室,但是阻止热量散发出去。火星为什么不适合人类居住?一个原因就是它的表面没有温室气体,留不住热量,导致温度过低。地球现在的问题是,温室气体过多。

现在的计算是,如果人类排放10000亿吨二氧化碳,地球就会升高2度,目前人类已经排放了6237亿吨。有一个网站实时显示目前排放了多少亿吨。

根据计算,2036年3月7日,人类将达到1万亿吨排放量。更热的日子还在后面。

新闻

1、中国的二氧化碳排放

《纽约时报》报道,一个美国教授认为,按照中国现在的二氧化碳排放水平,人类无法达到《巴黎协定》规定的减排目标,即全球平均温度比工业化之前上升不超过2摄氏度,除非中国的排放量大幅下降。

中国是世界最大的二氧化碳排放国。2017年,中国排放了117亿吨的温室气体,占世界总量的四分之一,其中包括92亿吨的二氧化碳,超过美国和欧盟的总和。按照现在的减排速度,中国的二氧化碳排放量最晚将在2030年达到峰值,到那一年,中国五分之一的能源将来自非化石燃料来源。

2、美国的贫富分化

美国经济研究所发现,美国的贫富分化一直在扩大,已经达到了1928年以来的最高点。

现在最富有的1%家庭获得全部收入的22%,只比1928年的23.9%低一点。美国人的年收入至少需要42.2万美元,才能跻身前1%的高收入者。这只是全国平均数,一些州的门槛要高得多,比如康涅狄格州的1%门槛为70万美元。

这就是技术革命的一个社会后果,贫富分化不断扩大,中产阶级消失,财富日益集中在少数富豪手里。

3、开放式办公室

Ruby on Rails 的创始人 DHH 公开抨击,开放式办公室是一个极其糟糕的坏主意。

有人说,开放式办公室可以增加合作。DHH 说实际情况是,开放式办公导致面对面的互动直线下降,因为人们这时需要通过耳机来集中注意力,交流变成依靠即时消息或电子邮件。最糟糕的情况是,同一房间有不同部门的数十个人,销售、营销、客服、管理者、程序员、设计师都混在一起,他们一定会互相打扰。

开放式办公实际带来的不是合作,而是压力和冲突,但它仍然是技术公司的默认配置。我们强迫绝大多数不喜欢开放式办公的人接受这种配置,这为了什么?因为管理层喜欢这样的配置?因为它在照片中看起来不错?还是因为它会给访问办公室的陌生人留下深刻的印象?

4、皮质醇贴片

斯坦福大学的科学家发明了一种皮肤贴片,可以实时测量汗液里面的皮质醇含量。一般来说,我们觉得压力很大的时候,皮质醇分泌就会增加。

以前的测量方法都无法实时得到结果。现在我们可以实时知道人体的感受了,甚至可以找出人群里面最紧张的人,这种传感器为以后更有趣的发明奠定了基础。

5、微型机器人竞赛

美国国防部高级研究局(DARPA)发起了一次微型机器人竞赛。现在大多数机器人都是模仿人类的外形,但是昆虫大小的机器人也有巨大的用处。DARPA 要求,这次参赛的机器人重量小于1克,体积小于1立方厘米。DARPA 为所有参赛者提供3200万美元资助,比赛可能在明年3月举行。

6、最古老的面包

考苦学家在约旦的沙漠里面,发现了一个石头砌的炉子,里面居然还有古人烤剩下来的面包屑。这是现存最古老的面包。

上图是显微镜下的面包屑,可以看到面包经过了充分发酵。

年代鉴定以后,所有人都大吃一惊,这个面包炉子距今14000年。那时人类甚至没有开始农业耕作,因此这个面包不是用小麦粉做的,而是来自野生的谷物。

7、代码搜索

8、机器狗 Spotmini

波士顿动力公司在成立16年后,终于要发售第一款产品了:一个类似小狗的四足机器人,高91厘米,重25公斤。这家公司以前的产品,都是供给美国国防部,这是第一款商业产品,预计明年上市。

这个机器人的功能非常惊人,可以自动识别道路,避开障碍,上楼下楼,跌倒还能爬起,机械臂可以拿起放下各种东西,请看视频

9、博士就业危机

加拿大媒体报道,该国的博士研究生只有五分之一能够找到教职。也就是说,80%的博士只能去企业界或转行,事实上确实有很多博士找不到工作,这篇报道里面就有博士改行当插花师或建筑工。

我想,这样的危机在中国一定更严重。因为中国的博士生规模世界第一,但是国内高校的扩张期已经过去了,现在想进高校当老师其实挺难的。如果转行的话,对个人和社会都是一种浪费。如果你有志攻读博士,一定要慎重。

10、AMD 游戏主机

上海的 ChinaJoy 展会上,AMD 宣布与中山小霸王公司合作推出新的游戏主机,CPU 是锐龙,GPU 是Vega,搭配 8GB GDDR5显存,性能将超过索尼 PS4 及微软 Xbox One 游戏机。

这台游戏机搭配 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD 硬盘,支持正版Windows 10系统,售价4998元,并有中文独占游戏 Onrush。由于没有自己的操作系统,这个所谓的游戏主机其实是一台 Windows 10 电脑。

11、AI 取得 Dota2 的胜利

OpenAI Five 与人类高级玩家的 Dota2 第一场比赛结束,AI 以 2:1 获胜。值得一提的是,AI 输掉的第三局是人类故意为它分配了能力较低的角色,而不是让它自己选择角色,AI 自己预估第三局的胜率只有2.9%。8月下旬将进行 AI 与职业团队的比赛。

12、一句话新闻

  • 随着手机支付的崛起,国内的 ATM 和 POS 设备制造行业大幅衰退,而二维码扫描设备制造业大幅成长。
  • Dart 语言发布2.0版。该语言的前途完全取决于谷歌的 Flutter 框架(Dart 是 Flutter 唯一支持的语言),如果谷歌大力推广这个框架,Dart 才有可能成功。
  • Android 9.0 发布,这个版本大量增加了 AI 支持,可以对每个用户提供更好的个性化服务。
  • Mozilla 浏览器计划取消 RSS 支持,原因是缺乏用户。

文摘

1、幸存者偏见

二战时,英国决定要在轰炸机上加装防弹材料,减少被德国炮弹击中时的伤害。

他们按照平安返回的轰炸机被击中的位置,为其他轰炸机加装防弹材料。这种方法看上去正确,其实是错的,真正应该加载防弹材料的,恰恰是那些没有被击中的位置。因为这些轰炸机能返回,就说明它们被击中的位置不是很重要,那些被击中要害位置的轰炸机,都没有能够返回。

这就叫做幸存者偏见,人们过度重视那些幸存的个体,以为他们的特质就代表整个总体的特质。

举例来说,很多创业者总是向某些最成功的企业家学习,比如,比尔盖茨,理查德布兰森,史蒂夫乔布斯,马克扎克伯格,伊隆马斯克等等。殊不知他们可能只是特例,他们的经验不一定普遍适用。

上面这些企业家有一些共同特点。

  • 反传统,不走寻常的道路。
  • 承担巨大风险,有冒险家特质。
  • 极端主义者,他们不喜欢中间立场,有明确的爱和恨。

他们能够成功,并不表示拥有这些特点,你就能成功。很多同样拥有这些特点的人,可能都已经失败了。事实上,稳健经营更能帮助一家小公司生存下来。

2、第一条大西洋海底电缆

以下摘自奥地利作家茨威格的《人类群星闪耀时》一书。

1851年,欧洲大陆都已经连通了电报。但是,美洲一直被排除在世界电报网之外。

大西洋漫无边际,人们根本就不可能在海面上设立众多中间站,更加不可能用一根电线跨越两个大洋。人们不仅不知道海洋的深度,对它的地质结构也知之甚少,大洋底部的电缆能否承受住巨大的海水压力仍然无从得知。

即使从理论和技术上来说,铺设一条如此漫长的海底电缆行得通,但在当时还没有能负载铁铜电缆全部重量的巨轮,也没有一台发电机的功率能输送电流经过如此漫长的距离。就算轮船轻装上阵,也至少要耗费三个星期。并且在此期间,所有的电缆都必须妥善存放,不能露天放置。

英国政府提供了曾经的海战旗舰"阿伽门农"号,美国政府则"贡献"了当时吨位最大的二桅战舰"尼亚加拉"号。经过特殊的改造后,这两艘船都能容纳一半的海底电缆。

最后,同时也是最关键的问题,就是制造电缆。当时,制造一条连接两大洲的电缆需要非常精湛的技术:它既要有钢筋的坚硬而不易断裂的特性,又有非常大的柔韧性,也必须像丝线一样耐压耐磨而能随意弯曲,还必须实心而有一定的空间。总而言之,电缆必须结实、精密。对整个工程而言,电缆上任何一个微乎其微的磨损和坑洼都会破坏电流的传递。

要制造一条这样的电缆,整整需要整座橡胶林的橡胶汁。做一个形象的说明:到工程完工,电缆里使用的铜丝和铁丝长达367000海里,足足能将地球环绕13圈,甚至能将地球和月球连接起来。为此,工厂里的机器整整工作了一年。

下图是160年前第一代的大西洋海底电缆。

3、中美电影周的真相

以下摘自冯小刚的《我把青春献给你》。

中国电影周说穿了,就是由一两个美国穷人,打着热爱中国电影的旗号,从中国的制片厂免费拿到一些电影拷贝,在美国华人集中的城市转着圈的卖票放映,从中有利可图的个人行为。国内的电影制片厂也全无版权的概念,拷贝一撒手就是几个月,条件只不过是几张往返美国的机票。

"中国电影周"放映的电影院条件环境都很差,观众大部分是华人,也有少数闲着没事跟着起哄的白人,因为这些人有强烈的中国情结,看什么破片子都报以热烈的掌声,这些掌声与影片的质量无关,只能反映新老华侨的爱国热情。不明真像的导演误以为自己拍的影片多么伟大,回国后马上约记者采访,据此抱怨国内的发行公司和观众对他影片的冷落是不识货,吹嘘他的影片在美国放映引起轰动。其实也就是寄居美国的少数人自娱自乐的一个派对,主流媒体对此只字未提。

所谓的中美文化交流,说白了还是华人与华人的一次收费联谊会,跟美国大众八竿子打不着。

本周图片

1、2060年的世界人口大国

上图是2060年的世界人口预测。印度是人口最多的国家,17亿左右;其次是中国,13亿左右;后面是尼日利亚,美国,巴基斯坦,印尼,刚果,巴西,埃塞俄比亚,坦桑尼亚和墨西哥。

历史上,亚洲约占世界人口的70%,欧洲大约10%到20%,非洲5%到10%。2060年,非洲人口比重将激增,增加到世界人口的35%左右。

2、Java 的类

Java 语言以众多的类著称,但是你知道它一共有多少个 public Class 吗?

3、LED 街灯

随着 LED 产业的发展,街灯已经大量改成了节能的 LED 灯。传统的昏黄温暖的橙色灯光,变成了明亮的蓝色灯光。有人提出,蓝色的明亮灯光容易对人类造成影响,使得效率降低,失眠和焦虑增加。

本周金句

1、

每颗恒星都在不停燃烧,释放能量。如果宇宙是静止的,必然变得越来越热。幸亏宇宙在不停膨胀,把这个问题解决了。(比尔·布莱森《万物简史》)

2、

人一生最大的幸运,就是在年富力强时发现了自己的人生使命。(茨威格《人类群星闪耀时》)

3、

过去盖起的宫殿中,没有他的位置,他只好在宫殿的旁边,另起炉灶,搭起了一间偏房。问题是偏房越盖越多,越盖越大,越盖越高,渐渐成了一个院落,它就成了另一座宫殿。(刘震云《<我把青春献给你>序言》)

          The C.O.W.S. THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MALCOLM X Part III      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Context of White Supremacy hosts the third study session on one of the most popular biographies ever published, The Autobiography of Malcolm X: As Told To Alex Haley (1965). Whites invested a massive amount of time and energy promoting incorrect information and propaganda for the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Minister Malcolm X. CNN delivered a new documentary which significantly minimized the role of COINTELPRO, and Malcolm's daughter, Ilyasah Shabazz, and comrades delivered excellent commentary on the legacy and lessons of El Hajj Malik Shabazz. Last week's session explored Malcolm's early experience in Boston. He acknowledges the self-hate that motivated him to chemically mutilate his hair and his obsession with nightlife and partying. White sexual predators descended on black clubs and dances, and Minister Malcolm was sexually exploited by a White Woman when he was still a minor. He offers explicit details on his employment with the railroad and how performing for Whites could boost a black person's career. As we continue, listeners are advised to keep this text in mind when searching for patience to share with black people.

          The C.O.W.S. Gil Scott-Heron THE LAST HOLIDAY Part 7 (Conclusion)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Context of White Supremacy hosts the seventh and final study session on Gil Scott-Heron's autobiography, The Last Holiday. A poet, author, musician and victim of White Supremacy, Scott-Heron died in 2011, one year before this text was published. He wrote and performed music that valued black lives and examined how the System of White Supremacy devastates black people. Legendary selections like "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised"  and "Whitey on the Moon" encourage many to credit Scott-Heron as being a hip-hop music pioneer. Last week's segment described how Scott-Heron joined Stevie Wonder for the 1980 "Hotter Than July Tour." Wonder used the concerts to boost momentum to establish a national holiday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. There was a vague description of Stevie Wonder stopping the Boston show to discuss the city's history of terrorizing black people. This was the same time period when Ronald Reagan was selected president. Gil described shock and disbelief over Reagan's triumph that reminded several readers of the 2016 election of the current U.S. president. Drugs and alcohol seem constant throughout most of the book and Scott-Heron's life. This week, Gus recommends listers closely scrutinize the description of John Lennon's death. We'll contrast this memoir to other biographies we've covered on the book club - Maya Angelou, Assata Shakur, Malcolm X.

San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys, National Football League, watch live online, watch live stream, Jimmy Garoppolo, NFL Preseason

The 2018 National Football league preseason schedule opens on Thursday with a slate of 12 games capped off by a West Coast clash featuring two of the league’s best young quarterbacks — or at least two from whom the most is expected, as Jimmy Garoppolo and the San Francisco 49ers will host Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys in a gridiron clash that will live stream from Santa Clara, California.

Though Prescott at 25 is a year younger than Garoppolo, as Pro Football Reference shows, and came into the league as a fourth-round draft pick just two years ago, Prescott already has 32 NFL starts on his ledger, compared to only seven for Garoppolo who will be entering his fifth season in the NFL.

And yet, in February as NBC Sports reported, San Francisco made Garoppolo the highest-paid player in NFL history, lavishing him with a five-year, $137.5 million contract.

          Live & Undercover: ‘BlacKkKlansman’      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Ron Stallworth lived it, wrote about it and now Spike Lee has filmed it. BLACKkKLANSMAN is Stallworth’s true story of how as a Colorado Springs African-American undercover cop he infiltrated the local Ku Klux Klan chapter in 1979 so successfully they voted him president.  In person during a nearly half-hour interview at the Essex House Stallworth, who was in law enforcement for nearly 40 years until he retired in 2006, emerges as an ideal interviewee. He answers questions as if he’s on the witness stand, answering in complete, direct sentences in a clear measured cadence.  It reminded me of the old Fifties documentary-like TV series DRAGNET where the star-producer Jack Webb’s Joe Friday always said, ‘Just the facts, ma’am.’

Stallworth, 65, was born in Chicago, raised in El Paso, TX and was the first African-American in the Colorado Springs Police Dept. in 1969 as a Police Cadet. In 1979 a local paper’s Want Ad from soldier at Fort Carson announced he was founding a new KKK chapter. Stallworth picked up the phone, called the soldier, impersonating a white recruit.  Thus began the undercover sting operation.  Eventually he talked to the head of the KKK, the Grand Dragon himself David Duke, complaining that he was still waiting to get his membership card. Duke personally signed and mailed it, where it was framed and hung in the police station. The case was kept secret until Stallworth published his memoir in 2014. A revised version with 8 pages of photographs was published in July by Flatiron Books with a movie tie-in cover. The book is subtitled: RACE, HATRED AND THE UNDERCOVER INVESTIGATION OF A LIFETIME.  The interview has been slightly condensed and edited.

 

Q:  If you’re here Ron, you are happy with the movie. What did you think the film got right in the best way?

RON STALLWORTH: The movie captured the essence of me at 25, going thru this investigation. The problems I had internally, initially to launch it. The problems of working within the police department when I first got hired.  They took some liberties there. I was 19 when I got hired and I wasn’t a police officer, I was a police cadet working in the civilian support capacity. They made it a composite for the purposes of the movie, but they captured what was going on in that environment with officers coming to the Records Bureau and asking for a record on a ‘toad.’ Which was a code word for blacks back then.  It captured things like that very well.  The encounters I had with the Klan members, the phone conversations – it captured that very well to the degree that it was touched upon.  All in all Spike did a masterful job putting his piece together.  What I REALLY liked was the fact that he connects the historical thread between the Confederacy, David Duke the Klan leader I was dealing with, the Charlottesville incident and Donald Trump. Masterful connecting that thread – and I applaud him for it.

 

Q: Ron has a great line in the movie about David Duke –

RS: ‘Do you really think there could be somebody like that in the White House?’ That was never said by me. But that was a subtle reference to what we have today.

 

Q: I talked to Washington yesterday and he said there could be a whole other movie about your issues getting into the Colorado Springs police force. In the movie all we see is Frederick Weller’s smarmy racist cop.

RS:  Weller played that character to the extreme – I never encountered anything like that.  It was very subtle. When I got hired at the age of 19 there were no blacks in the department. Period. For about four months I was the only black in the department. So things that were said or done were done very subtlely done. The most overt act, if you will, was the use of the word ‘toad’ when they would come to me in the Record Bureau and ask me to run a record on a ‘toad.’ My form of rebellion was when John David says, ‘There are no toads here.’  Once I figured out – because it took me a while to figure it out – to notice that every time I was checking up on a ‘toad’ the ‘toad’ was black.  That’s when I realized toad was a code word they used for black names.  When I figured it out, I stopped responding to it. If they came in I would ignore the request.  If they said, ‘Speak a little louder,’ I’d ignore it. Finally they’d say, ‘CADET, I’M TALKING TO YOU. GIVE ME A RECORD ON’ – whatever the person’s name is. They’d tell me the date of birth and ethnicity and at that time I’d respond.  If they ordered me, I’d say, ‘I can’t do this. We don’t have any toads here. We have people. If you give me the name of the person that you’re looking for, I can look it up.’  That was my form of rebellion. 

 

Q: What was the reason this was kept secret for 35 years – until you published your memoir?

RS: The investigation? There was no reason.  Other than I didn’t feel like writing the story.

 

Q: But there was never anything in the paper?  It basically was that the Klansman that were in the military were sent elsewhere?

RS:  Two who were at NORAD [their fingers were on nuclear triggers] were transferred out. But there was no publicity because I was ordered to destroy the files when the Klan decided they wanted Ron Stallworth to be the local chapter leader. The chief basically said, ‘Shut the investigation down now. We’ve gone far enough.’ I argued against it; he was adamant. ‘Shut it down.’ Then he told me to destroy all the files that had been generated. He said, ‘I don’t want it to leak out that we had cops in the Klan. Destroy the files. Don’t talk to anybody about it.’

 

Q: And you kept the files?

RS:  First opportunity after being told that, I walked out of the office with two notebooks about three inches thick with reports. That’s why I have my KKK certificate [he takes out his wallet and shows me his Klan membership card].

 

Q: For 1979.  When you retired in Utah from Public Safety chief, that’s when you wrote your memoir?

RS: I retired in 2006. I didn’t start writing until 2013. Why? I talked about writing the story for years but I never had the gumption until 2013. ‘Now’s the time.’

 

Q:  When Spike took on the movie – I know John David said Spike did not want him to meet you until they began filming – did Spike not want to see you as well?

RS: I didn’t meet Spike until they brought me to Brooklyn last October for the cast reading.  That’s when I met John David, Topher Grace [who plays David Duke], Adam Driver, Laura Harrier. I met them all at that time. John David told me then that he was not going to imitate me. He said, ‘I can’t imitate you, I’m just going to try and channel you. Try to capture the essence of you.’  He captures the 25 year old me very well.

 

Q: Did you have an Afro like that?

RS: Maybe an inch shorter. Yes, I did have an Afro similar to that.

 

Q: And did you have a beard?

RS: At various times in my undercover career I had either a full beard, a short-cropped beard, Fu Manchu, a plain simple moustache or just a goatee. We did that – generally we would  have a look that we would maintain for anywhere from 3 to 6 months. Then change our facial features, change our hairstyle, so we would look different and believe it or not it worked. One time I made a drug case against a guy wearing a full beard and 6 months later I trimmed it into a goatee and made another drug bust with the same guy -- and he didn’t recognize me.

 

Q: We don’t say criminals are the smartest people. The movie has your first undercover assignment covering a Stokely Carmichael rally and Ron gets involved with a woman he meets there.  Was that invented for the movie?

RS:  Yes, because the love interest was part of the script.  It didn’t happen in real life. Stokely Carmichael actually happened. 

 

Q: Were you married during this time?

RS:  No.

 

Q: You were free and unattached and could risk your life without upsetting anyone except maybe your parents.

RS:  I didn’t care what anybody thought, I was a grown adult. My mother never liked that I worked undercover.  She always worried.  ‘Don’t worry, it’s my job.’ My aunt who helped raise me, her older sister, was concerned. I told her the same. The woman I was dating and later married, she became my first wife – she deceased now. Cancer.  She knew some of the undercover stuff I did, not all  because I didn’t tell her everything. She never worried about it other than to be careful because she knew I was going to do it anyway. It’s something I wanted to do.

 

Q: Where did this passion to be undercover come from Ron?

RS:  In terms of a police career that’s what I wanted to do. That developed when I was working in the I.D. Bureau – I was 19 at the time – the narcotics officers would come up and ask for records. When I gave them the records, I saw them and the first time this happened I was, WHAT is this long-haired hippie guy coming up to me, asking for a record, for? Who the hell does he think he is! It had to be explained to me: Those are narcs.  They work undercover, that’s why they look the way they do.  They’re cops. Give them anything they need. Don’t recognize them when you see them in public because they may be working a case and your recognition of them could probably jeopardize their lives.  I thought, Damn that’s neat! I’m a 19 year old kid.  I wanted a little bit of that action.  First of all, I don’t like the idea of uniforms. I’ve never been a uniform person.  I wore my uniform with pride and in my opinion I look good in it.  But I never wanted to put the uniform on and make a career as a uniformed cop.  I wanted to be an undercover cop, blending in with the public, looking like a black militant or a long-haired hippie yet having a gun on my hip, a badge in my wallet and able to enforce the law.  To me, that was the neatest thing in the world.  It was also challenging. Police work is very routine.  You get a complaint about a dog barking, you go to the people and tell them to shut their dog’s barking. And you go on to the next thing.  What challenge is there in stuff like that?  I wanted something that would challenge me. And going into a situation and pretending to be something you’re not and your only true weapon is your ability to talk and work your way out of it.  Not only in it, but out of it. Because everybody carries guns and the fact that you carry one is not that important. I liked the challenge of going into those environments and being someone I wasn’t. And being successful and completing it. That’s where I wanted to go from the very beginning.

  

Q: The movie has Adam Driver’s cop impersonate Ron Stallworth when he meets the Klan face to face.  Two things: Your voice when you were on the phone speaking to Klansmen, did you alter it?

RS: No. I have read where reporters have said, ‘He spoke to the Klan in his white voice.’ When I read those reports it pisses me off.  ‘Cuz there was no attempt to disguise my voice. I talked to these guys on the phone just like I’m talking to you. Because when you’re undercover you try to stay as true to your identity as you are. You know who you are and you know how you normally function. If you try to put on a pretense, such as assuming a fake voice, you have to put on that fake voice ALL OF THE TIME. And you can’t afford to slip out of it. It’s too dangerous. So you talk to them just normally in your regular manner. When I would get on the phone I would simply say, ‘Hi, this is Ron Stallworth. Let me talk to the Grand Wizard’  -- or whatever the case may be. But never, ever did I attempt to disguise my voice. 

Q: And the guy who went to the Klan meetings as ‘Ron’ – did he do something to his voice to sound like you?

RS: Same principle. You can’t play with things like that working undercover.  You stay as true to who you are as possible. He did the same thing – and that’s why this investigation was so hilariously funny.  Because it never should have been successful. They should have recognized from the very beginning that the Ron Stallworth on the phone – that voice is totally different from the Ron Stallworth they’re having meetings with.  Chuck, the officer I describe in the book, who played me, Chuck’s voice is very distinctively different than mine.  A deaf person could tell that! These guys didn’t figure it out. Only once was I challenged. I went to a meeting – and this is depicted in the movie.  Chuck went to the meeting that I had set up and then I called, pretending to be the person who had been at that meeting because I wanted to follow up on something.  I called and immediately Ken O’Dell, the local organizer, he said, ‘What’s wrong with your voice?’  So I said [Stallworth coughs twice, assumes a lighter husky voice], ‘I have a sinus infection.’  He said, ‘I get those all the time. Here’s what you need to do.’ He prescribed a remedy for me.

Q: And that’s as far as it ever went?

RS: That’s as far as it ever went in terms of challenging my voice. 

Q: What about your life since you’ve published this book?  You’ve been anonymous your whole life and now you’re 65 years old – congratulations! – and you’re a celebrity.  The original book has been out, what, 4 or 5 years?

RS: The original book was published in 2014. The revised, edited edition came out June 5th by Flatiron Books. I don’t consider myself a celebrity. I’m still the same kid from El Paso, Texas, that I’ve always been. I’ve been blessed with some good fortune as a result of writing this book.  I understand my reality has changed a little bit. I have relatives and friends coming out of the woodwork that I’ve never HEARD OF before!  I have people who think I’m a millionaire – and I’m far from that.  I’m not even remotely close to that.   But they think I’m a millionaire now because I have a book out and a movie’s been made and the money’s just rolling into me. When I tell them that that’s not true, they don’t believe me.  I have people calling me up, messaging me, just to say ‘Thank you for what you did. We appreciate the service you did.’ That I find fascinating, that people would take the time to do that. I got one of those messages last night.  So my reality has changed but I don’t see myself as a celebrity.  I ‘met’ John David on the phone – he called me up to talk to me a few weeks before I flew to Brooklyn for the cast reading.  He called me up to talk to me and I still have his message on my phone because he essentially said, ‘I’m a little intimidated Mr. Stallworth. I’m going to play you and I want to capture your story, your “essence.”’ He said, ‘Wow! I am so intimidated, this is real scary.’ When we met he said, ‘Sir, it’s such an honor to meet you,’ and I said, ‘No, the honor is mine. You’re the celebrity. I should be intimidated to talk to you.’

Q:  Has anybody threatened you? Has anybody said, ‘I’m from the Klan. You’re a dirty dog and humiliated us and we’re going to get even’?

RS:  Not yet! I fully expect at some point in time will come across. But that’s par for the course. You deal with that as an undercover cop. I’ve been threatened before. When I was working narcotics I got threatened on several occasions.  Once in a courtroom testifying at a trial.  I’m accustomed to have people make threats against me. I fully expect at some point in time one of these white supremacists will say something. They can say anything they want just don’t try to mess with my wife.

Q: So you’ve remarried.

RS:  I have. Been married a little over a year now. 

Q: Is that the first time since your wife died?

RS:  Yes, it’s my second marriage.

Q:  And children?

RS: I have two sons by my first wife, 32 and 28.  They’ve known about my work all along. They knew about this story 8 years ago. They’re very excited about the movie coming out and I said, ‘Recognize that it’s your name coming out of the screen. Run with it! Have fun with it. Tell your friends that’s your dad and if it helps your status with your friends, enjoy it.’ 

Q: Are either of them in law enforcement?

RS: No.

Aussie Aboriginal Series: MYSTERY ROAD

Anyone who was first introduced to Judy Davis in her mesmerizing, galvanizing film debut, the 1979 Australian hit MY BRILLIANT CAREER, should not miss the Aboriginal Aussie series MYSTERY ROAD.  This is a chance to see one of the globe’s greatest English-speaking actors in a truly unexpected role.   Davis was last seen as viperous gossip monarch Hedda Hopper, needling Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in Ryan Murphy’s FEUD. In MYSTERY ROAD, which premieres on AcornTV Monday August 20 with its six episodes, Davis is local cop Emma James in dusty one-horse town Patterson where there are many sheep and cattle and little else. This contemporary drama with its Western setting is hardly where anyone might expect to find Davis who nevertheless gives Emma a solidity, common sense and irritability without a trace of campy theatrics. Emma we discover is to the manor born; her equally wealthy brother runs an enormous sheep and cattle station.  When two local boys go missing, the search that is the series’ motor begins. One is a local hero who has disappeared, an aboriginal soccer star. The other, a white drifter recently arrived from who knows where, might have been his mate or his lover. Or drug dealers. Emma is forced to partner with detective Jay Swan (Aaron Pederson) on a twisty road of discovery, which too often is set in the local bar with ever present mugs of beer.  Swan, a solid, almost monumental aboriginal presence, defines ‘speak softly, carry a big stick.’ His ex-wife shows up, looking for their daughter -- who isn’t missing for long but sees MYSTERY ROAD become a domestic drama with gender a telling factor in what has and what will happen to the many characters including a just paroled pedophile rapist. Meanwhile Davis struts, rolls her eyes and commands everyone’s attention with her insistence on pursuing the truth, wherever it may lead.  The scenery, picturesque but so dry you’ll want to grab one of those mugs, looms mightily as its own character.

 

NEW DVDs:

Action and attitude are the hallmarks of STRIKE BACK SEASON FIVE (Blu-ray + Digital, Home Box Office, Unrated). Yes, SEASON FIVE boasts a new troupe of terrorist-busting  commandos engaged in derring do in North Korea. The Cinemax series works as an update on weekly serials with its continuing storyline that usually ends each episode with a cliffhanger.  STRIKE BACK’s rightly won fans who find its mix of bravery, courage, camaraderie and patriotism irresistible.  Here is CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON, CRAZY RICH ASIANS’ legendary Michelle Yeoh, England’s Robson Green (GRANTCHESTER) and the two stars bearded Sullivan Stapleton and square jawed Philip Winchester.

Inspired by the death of a classmate, an Iowa high school’s girls volleyball team captain, THE MIRACLE SEASON (DVD, 20th Century Fox Entertainment, PG) handles tragedy, trauma and regeneration sensitively.  As Iowa City West High returns for a new year, having won the state women’s volleyball championship the previous year, they are devastated when their best and most loved player Caroline ‘Line’ Found (Danika Yarosh) dies in a road accident.  From the title you know going in, that despite a bad start the kids will rally for Line and follow their motto inspired by Caroline’s optimistic, outgoing attitude: ‘Live Like Line.’ Helen Hunt and William Hurt are on hand to give gravitas amid a cast of unknowns. Hunt, who looks wonderful simply because she looks perfectly normal (no weird cosmetic procedures or Botox), is fine as the understanding coach who knows she can’t push her hurting players too much or too soon. Hurt is the anguished father who loses his wife to cancer soon after his daughter’s funeral.  School sports tragedies ironically make for ideal drama – to be so young with so much hope for the future and have it brutally crushed, ended.  And then to rise up as the team channels its sorrow into a positive force and beats the odds to win. A more stirring, similarly themed film is the 2006 WE ARE MARSHALL about the W. Virginia football team wiped out in a 1970 plane crash and subsequent efforts in ’71 to field a team. 

William Witney fans rejoice!  Here in an excellent print is Witney’s 1956 A STRANGE ADVENTURE (Blu-ray, Kino Lorber Studio Classics, Unrated). Set in a snowy hideaway where the good guys are held hostage by ruthless gangsters ADVENTURE is a mix of hotrod teen drama, classic film noir and old fashioned melodrama.  The Republic Pictures production boasts a transparent femme fatale in Liz Taylor lookalike Marla English, first-rate sociopathic villainy from typecast Jan Merlin and Nick Adams, who was in the previous year’s REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE with his good buddy James Dean. Here he’s an asthmatic crook.  Toby Roan and Jay Dee Witney offer an informative audio commentary. 

You won’t get a better look at Sixties’ Swinging London than the satirical SMASHING TIME (Blu-ray, Kino Lorber Studio Classics, Unrated).  This 1967 romp teamed two Bright British Lights – Lynn Redgrave, from the acting dynasty who had won fame as GEORGY GIRL (’66), and Rita Tushingham, the sparrow-like Liverpudlian star of the seminal British working class, kitchen sink dramatic trio, A TASTE OF HONEY, THE LEATHER BOYS and GIRL WITH GREEN EYES.  Thanks to film historian Kat Elinger’s brightly informed audio commentary, SMASHING TIME’s connection to what came before and its suggestion of where Britain was headed becomes clear.  A flop when first released, it’s wonderful mix of slapstick – just seeing the two stars side by side with Redgrave towering a head taller than Tushingham is a visual gag – satire and wish fulfillment plotting as the two lower class mates become celebrated and famous.  On hand, Michael York (Bob Fosse’s Oscar-winning CABARET was in his future).

Tim Robbins devoted himself to live, no-budget, avant garde theater as soon as he graduated from UCLA and CRADLE WILL ROCK (Blu-ray, Kino Lorber Studio Classics, R), a 1999 film revolving around a landmark 1930s agitprop play, reflects that.  As director-actor Robbins is best known for acting in THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, BULL DURHAM and MYSTIC RIVER and writing and directing the anti-capital punishment drama DEAD MAN WALKING that won his longtime companion Susan Sarandon her Best Actress Academy Award. CRADLE, blessed with Robbins’ audio commentary, is set in New York during the Depression and highlights Orson Welles’ efforts to present his legendary stage production THE CRADLE WILL ROCK uncensored.  Here too is Nelson Rockefeller commissioning Mexico’s proudly anti-capitalist Communist artist Diego Rivera to create Rockefeller Center lobby murals (they’re still there!) which he … censored!  The extraordinary cast includes Bill Murray, Vanessa Redgrave, Sarandon, Hank Azaria, John Cusack, Jack Black, Paul Giamatti and Ruben Blades.

          Eruptive Exertion: Jay & Yorgen by Gordon Nebeker      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
It helps to have someone to help count the number of reps while doing incline presses.

'Something akin to the rarity of a full solar eclipse occurred two weeks ago when Yorgen and Jay were at our house in Boston at the same time!'
Gordon Nebeker

It’s Jay’s turn to do the incline presses and Yorgen is pushing him to work as hard as he can!

Last week, photographer Gordon Nebeker began posting a new series of images on his Instagram. The series included two models working out at the guy. The first, Yorgen, I have featured several times over the past year and a model who has become a favorite with FH. The second model Jay is a model I was first introduced to last year and have been hoping to feature on the site.


Gordon began the series by posting a shot of Jay and Yorgen on the stairs. It was a beautiful body shot, but only hinted at what was to come. The next day, Gordon posted the image I featured earlier this week on FH. (HERE:) I immediately got in touch with Gordon about featuring the shot. The image was visually stunning and incredibly hot, but it was the explosive chemistry between Jay and Yorgen that literally erupted from the photo.

A workout would not be complete without some cardio!

It wasn't just their beautiful naked bodies, it wasn't just the great pose and composition of the shot. There was something intensely sensual in their eyes, a carnal connection between them that sparked the viewers imagination of what was to come. There was also an erotic vulnerability, almost a teacher/student feel, propelled by the difference in body types, the models eye connection and through pose. Jay, sitting with only the lat bar between his body and Yorgen's. I am sure we'd all love a hot spotter like Jay or Yorgen, and although our heart rates would increase, it would be hard to keep focus on our repetitions...


I was not the only follower on Gordon's Instagram to feel the heat. The image triggered a huge reaction, as did the subsequent shots from the series Gordon posted over the the next few days. Sadly, the heat seemed too much for Instagram and Gordon's posting was abruptly halted (deleted) just as viewers were edging towards the conclusion of the series. On the plus side, although I certainly related with Gordon's frustration, jumped at the opportunity to share the entire series (and a few of Gordon's captions) on FH.

I am told this is a Yoga position, though I admit I have never seen this exercise before! The guys are performing it well!

In any exercise program, it is very important to stretch the muscles frequently and correctly.

'Something akin to the rarity of a full solar eclipse occurred two weeks ago when Yorgen and Jay were at our house in Boston at the same time! It seemed to me to be a no-brainer that we do a photo shoot of them together since they are two of the most popular models I have worked with in the past year. They readily agreed and we carved out an hour and a half to do the whole shoot.'


'It is a challenge just working with two models at the same time but the challenge increases when the models don’t really know each other (Yorgen and Jay had never met before) and there is no obvious reason for the shoot (how will they relate to each other?). And then it hit me: both of these guys know their way around a gym and what is a more ‘buddy’ thing to do than work out together and spot for and encourage each other!! This was a real collaboration and the guys worked out their poses and I tried to insure the photographs would “meet the community standards” of Instagram where I was planning to post the shoot.'


'Well, it all started well on Instagram until after the fifth photo was posted and the series was breaking records for “likes” on my page. And then on the sixth day (about half way through the series), Instagram saw fit to take down the next three photos I was trying to post so the gym series was stopped dead in its tracks! To this day, I am not sure why they decided to do this as nothing was “showing” and we were meeting “community standards” as I understand them but there was no way to appeal the decision. I had a lot of requests to please continue the series. I approached Tye at FH, so here is the complete Jay and Yorgen Gym Series for your enjoyment.'
Gordon Nebeker


'Good workout, guys!! Time to hit the showers! And.... so we leave the guys in the shower where, lucky for them, they can take turns scrubbing those hard-to-reach backs.'

It has been a really hard few weeks for marginalized baseball fans. While it’s always kind of hard to love a sport, players, and culture that all-too-often don’t love you back, it has felt even harder recently as bigoted tweets from players resurface over and over again. In the aftermath, we’re left with reeling fans who are harmed by the words, athletes trying desperately to apologize, and the (mostly white and male) sports media working overtime to let the players off the hook. But the people who are directly hurt by their favorite players’ cavalier tweets are saying that their apologies aren’t enough and players, teams, and media members need to do better.

It all began back on July 17 during the MLB All-Star Game when Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Josh Hader was on the mound. He’d been having a breakout season, and the 24-year-old reliever, who grew up near Washington, D.C. where the game was being played, had family in the crowd. By the time he left the mound—after giving up a three-run homerun—his name was known for very different reasons. Tweets had been found from 2011 and 2012 in which the then-17-year-old Hader had written an assortment of racist, homophobic, and misogynistic thoughts and slurs, including “kkk,” “white power,” and “I hate gay people.”

Hader later apologized in a press conference for what he chalked up to a youthful mistake. “I’m deeply sorry for what I’ve said, and it doesn’t reflect any of my beliefs going on now. I was young, immature, and stupid, and there’s no excuses for what was said or what happened.” He also blamed rap lyrics. His teammates rallied behind him, likely because they had little choice in the sport where presenting a unified front is valued above all else, and he received a standing ovation in his first home appearance after the scandal. White baseball writers, like Jon Heyman (who blocked me and other female sports writers after we took issue with his coverage of domestic violence allegations against players), bent over backward to excuse him, writing that the tweets “shouldn’t ruin his life” and calling the then-17-year-old Hader “a child.”

It’s worth noting that the person who posted Hader’s tweets is a 16-year-old white kid, who told the Associated Press, “I’m younger than he was at the time, and no one would ever see anything like that from me. It’s horrid.” Then, this week, more tweets surfaced from Atlanta Braves pitcher Sean Newcomb and Washington Nationals shortstop Trea Turner that contained racist and homophobic slurs. They, too, scrambled to issue apologies and assure the public that their tweets were not representative of their views, or the people they were today. The media has rushed to ask their teammates of color to speak about them without recognizing the systemic barriers and racism that exists in their own clubhouses that might preclude them from saying anything other than what a great guy the offending player is.

But all three of these apologies are lacking, and even my 4-year-old could tell you why. Because a real, true apology comes with action—a demonstration of how you’re going to do better and be better. There’s a song on the PBS Kids show Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood that tells kids, “Saying sorry is the first step.” The next step is asking, “How can I help?” In our house, I teach my kids a three-part apology: 1) saying you’re sorry, 2) explicitly saying what you’re sorry for, and 3) asking what you can do to make it better.

Most of the athlete apologies vaguely refer to “offensive” tweets or words, but don’t use words like “homophobic,” “racist,” or “misogynist.” Instead, they skirt around naming their offense. They often apologize to their teams or their organizations—Turner initially apologized for bringing “negative light” onto himself—but they never apologize to the people, fans, and communities they hurt. People like Jenn Rubenstein, a Nationals fan who tweeted at Turner about the impact his words had for them:

“Those words you used?… You knew what they were. You knew what they meant. You may not have thought you meant it *that way,* but in the end your intent doesn’t really matter,” Rubenstein wrote. “If you run over my foot, but you didn’t *mean* to, that doesn’t make my foot less broken, or make it hurt less. An apology, a real one, wouldn’t fix it—but it would help. (By “real” I mean acknowledging pain you caused, *even inadvertently,* [and] how you’ll do better.)” (Rubenstein has also been donating money based on the statistics of athletes who have made homophobic comments through their Twitter account @queerfancystats.)

To his credit, Turner issued a much better apology the next day, specifically apologizing to the “LGBT, African-American, and special needs communities.” He also apologized to the fans that were hurt: “A lot of fans had been sharing their thoughts in the last few days and I’ve had a chance to read a few of them. I think that’s where it is most affected by what I said and I want to apologize to those people.”

But none of these players have said how they plan to show they’re sorry, and none have faced any disciplinary action from their teams or Major League Baseball itself. Hader was ordered to attend sensitivity training with Billy Bean, MLB’s vice-president for social responsibility and inclusion, and Newcomb and Turner will meet with him, too. In the past, Bean, who is gay, has been used to help defend offending players—a blog post earlier this season by a fan named Andrew, noted that in media coverage from The Athletic that followed Toronto Blue Jay Kevin Pillar’s on-field use of a gay slur last season, “Bean’s personal support of Pillar is used as a kind of Gay Balm for the sport’s persistent homophobia.”

But what about reaching out to the fan communities and donating their time or some money to an organization doing work with marginalized people? In Turner’s case, it would be quite easy. His teammate, Sean Doolittle, works with the D.C.-area organization, SMYAL, to support LGBTQ youth. Taking accountability and showing sincere remorse requires action, and demonstrably showing that you plan to make it right. Otherwise, the words ring hollow. Turner seems to know that, and a column in the Washington Post said that, going forward, “he is trying to determine the best way to demonstrate that growth, to use his platform for good instead of the hurt he caused with those tweets.”

It’s a continuation of the message women are constantly receiving from the sports world: You don’t belong here; this space is not for you. We’re constantly being reminded that we don’t matter.

Tweet this

In Pillar’s case from last season, he donated his salary from the two games he was suspended to a LGBTQ organization; but as Andrew noted in another post, “That’s not charity, but punishment. The result is the same, money going to LGBTQ ally organizations, but it doesn’t reflect growth on Pillar’s part.” And the following year, a white, cisgender, heterosexual baseball writer wrote about his redemption and growth process a year later. The piece centered Pillar, and how hard the experience was for him, like Heyman’s column centered Hader’s feelings following the discovery of his tweets.

The pain that professional athletes like Pillar and Hader experience as a result of their own words is nothing compared to the impact those words have for the communities they were directed toward. Let’s be clear: These athletes are white, rich, and, as Doolittle tweeted, “have been at the top of the food chain since high school.” Nothing anyone can say to them can really hurt them. In contrast, the impact for marginalized people affected by their words is very real: according to the Trevor Project, lesbian, gay, and bisexual youth contemplate suicide at almost three times the rate of straight youth and are almost five times as likely to have attempted suicide.

Each episode of homophobic harassment or abuse more than doubles the likelihood of self-harm. Black Americans are subjected to police violence and mass incarceration, being incarcerated at more than five times the rate than white Americans are. One in six women will be the victim of sexual assault in her lifetime, according to RAINN.

These statistics give a face to what can seem like a victimless offense of sending random teenage thoughts into the Twitter void because it’s very likely that these players don’t see themselves as bigots, and their comments, as their apologies attest, “are not representative of” who they are today. But there is a very real cultural problem that lets white, teenage boys think their words aren’t hurting anyone and that “it’s not serious,” because their words aren’t hurting people like them. Since they will never know what it feels like to have a slur hurled their way or to experience violence as a result of their identity, they also don’t understand how serious these words really are.

It’s clear that a cultural shift needs to happen. The solution is not, as some people have suggested, to make sure that professional athletes scrub their profiles when they’re drafted. As Dr. David J. Leonard, author of Playing While White, noted on Twitter, “The calls for white MLB players to ‘scrub’ or ‘clean up’ social media to get rid ‘evidence’ of racism, sexism and homophobia is emblematic of our collective refusal to address root issues all while focusing on etiquette and simply performing equity, diversity [and] inclusion.” And, as Barry Petchesky pointed out at Deadspin, there is value in public shaming, and hopefully some teenage boys are learning from their favorite athletes’ falls from grace.

Even still, for the people hurt by their words, moving on will never truly be an option. As a queer woman, I will remember their words every time they step on the field, a reminder that baseball isn’t supposed to be for people like me.

          THE MURDER OF MARY MEYER      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

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

Click here to enlarge top photo.

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

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

MISSING LINKS

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

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

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

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


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

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

NEW LEVEL OF UNDERSTANDING

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

Author Peter Janney

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

JACK KENNEDY AND MARY MEYER     

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

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

Richard Helms: The man who kept the JFK secrets

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

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

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

EVOLVING TRAJECTORY  

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

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

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

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

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

SECURITY OF THE SLAVE 

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

THE OSWALD SYNCHRONISM  

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

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

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

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

Reconstruction

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The West

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

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

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

 Image result for reservations native americanImage result for Crazy Horse


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

Industrialization and the Guided Age

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

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

Image result for robber baronsImage result for robber barons

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



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

Image result for Knights of LaborImage result for Haymarket Square strike

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

New Social Realities

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

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

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

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

Tu enfermera sólo sabía hablar italiano,
pero luego de veinte minutos pude imaginarme la semana final
y las lágrimas corrieron por mis mejillas...

Cuando me emabarqué en Italia con el cuerpo de mi madre
toda la costa del Golfo de Génova
estallaba en una vehemente flor.
Los locos amarillos y azulados trineos acuáticos
barrenando como martinetes
es la estela burbujeante spumante de nuestro barco,
recordaban los estrepitosos colores de mi Ford.
Mi madre viajaba en primera clase en la bodega:
su ataúd Risorgimento, negro y oro,
era como el de Napoleón en los Inválidos...

Mientras los pasajeros se tostaban
en el Mediterráneo, en las sillas de cubierta,
nuestro cementerio familiar en Dunbarton
se extendía debajo de las Montañas Blancas
con un tiempo bajo cero.
El suelo del cementerio se estaba convirtiendo en piedra,
tantas de sus muertes habían ocurrido en pleno invierno.
Sombríos y hoscos entre las cegadoras vestiscas,
su negro arroyo y los troncos de los abetos estaban lisos
   como mástiles.
Una cerca de medias lanzas de hierro
bordeaba de negro sus lápidas de pizarra, casi todas
   coloniales.

La única alma "antihistórica" que vino a parar allí
era mi padre, ahora enterrado debajo de su reciente
lonja de mármol de vetas negras sin desgastar.
Aun el latín de su divisa de Lowell:
Occasionem cognosce,
parecía demasiado práctico y agresivo allí,
donde el quemante frío iluminaba
las inscripciones labradas de los parientes de mi madre;
veinte o treinta Winslows y Starks.
La escarcha les había otorgado a sus nombres un borde de
   diamante...

En el grandilocuente rótulo sobre el féretro de mi madre,
Lowell había sido escrito erróneamente LOVEL.
El cadáver
estaba envuelto como un panetone en papel de estaño italiano.

Sailing Home from Rapallo

[February 1954]

Your nurse could only speak Italian,
but after twenty minutes I could imagine your final week,   
and tears ran down my cheeks....

When I embarked from Italy with my Mother’s body,   
the whole shoreline of the Golfo di Genova 
was breaking into fiery flower.
The crazy yellow and azure sea-sleds   
blasting like jack-hammers across
the spumante-bubbling wake of our liner,   
recalled the clashing colors of my Ford.   
Mother traveled first-class in the hold;   
her Risorgimento black and gold casket   
was like Napoleon’s at the Invalides....

While the passengers were tanning   
on the Mediterranean in deck-chairs,   
our family cemetery in Dunbarton   
lay under the White Mountains
in the sub-zero weather.
The graveyard’s soil was changing to stone—
so many of its deaths had been midwinter.   
Dour and dark against the blinding snowdrifts,
its black brook and fir trunks were as smooth as masts.
A fence of iron spear-hafts
black-bordered its mostly Colonial grave-slates.   
The only “unhistoric” soul to come here   
was Father, now buried beneath his recent   
unweathered pink-veined slice of marble.   
Even the Latin of his Lowell motto:   
Occasionem cognosce
seemed too businesslike and pushing here,   
where the burning cold illuminated
the hewn inscriptions of Mother’s relatives:   
twenty or thirty Winslows and Starks.
Frost had given their names a diamond edge....

In the grandiloquent lettering on Mother’s coffin,   
Lowell had been misspelled LOVEL.
The corpse
was wrapped like panettone in Italian tinfoil.

Online dating isn't easy, and now we have the data to prove it.

A new study, published in the journal Science Advances Wednesday — which analyzed data from a pool of tens of thousands of online dating profiles in New York, Boston, Seattle, and Chicago — found that people consistently message potential mates who are out of their league.

What a shock.

Study authors Elizabeth Bruch and Mark Newman pulled information from profiles and plugged it into an algorithm which took into account age, education, gender, and race/ethnicity in relation to the number of messages received among heterosexual individuals. Read more...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Martinez: Real late.

Tabler: Late in the off-season.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          $3.9B buyout of Tribune by Sinclair ends in acrimony      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

NEW YORK — The $3.9 billion buyout of Tribune Media by Sinclair collapsed Thursday, ending a bid to create a massive media juggernaut that could have rivaled the reach of Fox News.

Tribune Media Co. said Thursday that it is suing Sinclair for breach of contract and at least $1 billion in damages, according to its complaint .

Sinclair used "unnecessarily aggressive and protracted negotiations" with the Department of Justice and Federal Communications Commission over regulatory requirements, the Chicago company said, and it refused to sell the stations it needed to in order to gain regulatory approval.

Sinclair Broadcast Group wanted the Chicago company's 42 TV stations and had initially agreed to dump almost two dozen of its own to score approval by the FCC.

The media company, which has enjoyed the support of President Donald Trump, appeared to be cruising toward approval by U.S. regulators.

Last month, however, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said that he had "serious concerns" about the deal, saying that Sinclair might still be able to operate the stations "in practice, even if not in name."

That drew a rebuke from Trump.

"So sad and unfair that the FCC wouldn't approve the Sinclair Broadcast merger with Tribune," Trump tweeted. He said that allowing Sinclair to expand its reach would have led to a "much needed conservative voice by and for the people."

Sinclair operates 192 stations, runs 611 channels and operates in 89 U.S. markets. It would have been able to expand rapidly into numerous new markets with the Tribune acquisition.

Sinclair has become a significant outlet for conservative views.

It was admonished by media watchdogs in April after Deadspin, a sports news site, pieced together clips of dozens of TV anchors for Sinclair reading from the same script, which warned viewers about "biased and false news" from other media outlets.

Sinclair has defended the decision to have its anchors read from the same script across the country as a way to distinguish its news shows from unreliable stories on social media.

The Maryland company said Thursday in a prepared statement that the Tribune lawsuit is "entirely without merit."

"We unequivocally stand by our position that we did not mislead the FCC with respect to the transaction or act in any way other than with complete candor and transparency," said CEO Chris Ripley.

Free media advocacy groups cheered the demise of the deal.

Public Knowledge, an advocacy group that has been critical of the FCC under Pai, has been against a tie up between Sinclair and Tribune from the start.

"While what has apparently killed this deal was Sinclair's pattern of deception at the FCC — a fact that should affect its future dealings at the Commission — the deal was bad on its own merits, and this latest development is good for consumers," said Phillip Berenbroick, senior policy counsel at the organization. "Broadcasters are supposed to serve their local communities. This deal would have contributed to the trend where 'local' news and 'local' programming is created or scripted out of town."

          Boston Scientific to submit last FDA PMA module for Lotus Edge aortic valve this month      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Boston Scientific (NYSE:BSX) said today it plans to submit the final technical module for the FDA premarket approval application for its Lotus Edge aortic heart valve system by the end of next week. The good news follows a long string of hurdles the Marlborough, Mass.-based company has faced with the Lotus over the past few years. Last November, Boston Scientific announced news of a delay that resulted in a $3 billion drop in its market capitalization. Earlier that year in February, the company recalled the Lotus TAVR system over issues with its locking mechanism and said it didn’t expect to be able to get the device back on the market in Europe or to file for changes with the FDA by the beginning of 2018. Boston paused Lotus implantations in October 2016 to investigate a locking ...

Boston Scientific is on a roll today. Not only has the company announced yet another acquisition, but it also said it plans to submit the final technical module of the Lotus Edge aortic valve system premarket approval (PMA) application to FDA next week. This could put the device on track for a mid-2019 approval. The Lotus Edge for TAVR may be one of the most watched products in Boston Scientific's pipeline. The device has drawn interest from the medical and financial analyst communities because the current generation of the valve is known for having low rates of paravalvular leak (PVL). The Lotus Edge has been described as being designed to maintain those low PVL rates while also reducing permanent pacemaker implant rates with its Depth Guard technology. However, Bo...

          Minor Notes: Devers makes a pit stop in Lowell, Scherff begins a rehab stint      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Here are Thursday's minor league notes:
  • There was plenty of movement in the minors this week, with the biggest news being Rafael Devers seeing time in Lowell. Devers hit a mammoth home run on Monday in his only rehab appearance and the Red Sox activated him on Wednesday. Tony Renda, who scored the winning run against the Yankees on Sunday night, was optioned to Pawtucket. 
  • 14th-ranked prospect Alex Scherff has been on the disabled list since June 13 with an intercostal strain, but he started a rehab assignment with the GCL Red Sox on Wednesday, throwing two innings of one-run ball. 
  • Austin Glorius finished up his rehab assignment and is now back in Salem. He is taking the place of Darwinzon Hernandez, who was placed on the disabled list. Hernandez has been one of the hottest pitchers in the system of late, pitching to a 1.50 ERA over his last 36 innings, striking out 51. 
  • Left-hander Rio Gomez, outfielder Tyler Dearden, and infielders Korby Batesole, Devlin Granberg and Xavier LeGrant all were named to the New York-Penn League All-Star team. The game will take place on August 13. 
  • Gomez will not be participating in the game as he was promoted to Greenville. He was dominant in Lowell, going 2-0 with a 1.65 ERA over 27 1/3 innings. He walked four and struck out 24. 
  • Greenville needed the pitching reinforcements after Hildemaro Requena was placed on the disabled list. Requena was struggling mightily over his last four starts, giving up 18 runs in 23 innings. 
  • Zach Schellenger, Boston's sixth-round pick in 2017, was activated by the Drive after missing the beginning of the season with an injury. Schellenger allowed one run and struck out eight over six innings on his rehab stint in the GCL.

Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Missy Raines is considered one of the most respected, popular, and trailblazing figures in bluegrass today. A seven-time winner of the IBMA bass player of the year award, and a member of Alison Krauss’s first all-female bluegrass band, she has backed greats such as Claire Lynch, Mac Wiseman, Kenny Baker, and Peter Rowan. Raines now leads her own innovative and genre-bending trio: a rich, jazz-tinged combination of her bluegrass roots and thick Americana, featuring George Jackson on fiddle and Ben Garnett on acoustic guitar. With a smoky and seductive alto, Raines heads up this trio featuring mandolin/fiddle, upright bass, and acoustic guitar. The trio covers broad territory and the compass is set by Raines, planted center stage, directing with her bass every bit as much as she plays it. She is set to release her third album for Compass Records in October, Royal Traveller, produced by Alison Brown, featuring lush sounds, thick grooves, and memorable songs. 

Very few musicians of any stripe personify a musical genre as completely as Tony Furtado embodies Americana roots music. Furtado is an evocative and soulful singer, a wide-ranging songwriter, and a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist—adept on banjo, cello-banjo, slide guitar, and baritone ukulele. A native of Pleasanton, California, Furtado took up the banjo at age 12, inspired by the Beverly Hillbillies television show and a sixth grade music report. Beginning with Swamped in 1990, he recorded six critically acclaimed albums for Rounder Records, collaborating with master musicians such as Krauss, Jerry Douglas, Tim O’Brien, Stuart Duncan, and Kelly Joe Phelps. Beginning in the late 1990s—influenced by musical heroes such as Ry Cooder, David Lindley, and Taj Mahal—Furtado added slide guitar, singing, and songwriting to his musical toolbox and began leading his own band.

A new report by the Journal of the American Medical Association finds that young African-American men have better survival chances in prison than on the street because they have better access to health care. Meanwhile, a group based in Albany is rolling out a new program to address the intersection of race, crime, criminal justice policy, and health. New York spends more money on health care than almost any other state, but a new report finds that it's not reaching one group in particular – young black men. Researchers from the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that African-American men in their teens and twenties receive few benefits from health-care spending. Boston Medical Center’s Dr. Stephen Martin, a coauthor of the report, says they have a better chance of surviving in prison than on the street.

When you start with a pre-literate functional moron with delusions of grandeur and a communism fetish, the fruit isn't going to fall very far from the tree:

(LUNITARDIA) On Cuomo Prime Time, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that socialized medicine will be affordable because people will no longer have to pay for funerals.
This from someone with no less than a degree in economics and international relations from Boston University, and over $100K in unpaid student loans to prove it. (I'm betting the midnight throat-slitting over there will start any day now, and the retroactive revocation of that clearly worthless degree hangs on the results of November's election.)

Such a one-person cornucopia of assclownery as Ms. Logorrhea Ocrazio-Dorkuez is magnificent in its unabashed splendor, and gives forth its bounty like an elephant with diarrhea. The smell of the product, in both cases, seems remarkably similar too. Coincidence taking a hand, no doubt.

I can't figure out whether she isn't being frequently and openly tackled - like the Secret Service loading Shrillary into a van - is because her nominal minders just aren't fast enough, or whether it's because everyone from the media to her team of retards are all in lockstep agreement with every insaniac thing she's saying, and totally obliviously tone-deaf to reality, but I'm too busy clutching my sides to care at this point.

I'll say it again: Mad Maxine Waters isn't going to live forever. Infernal hosts uncountable are doubtless hoof-pawing the sulfurous ground of the netherworld in anticipation of the bounty her imminent arrival represents.

So in anticipation of her loss to the lampoonery dais, we need to get fuckwitted loudmouthed jackasses like Carmen Miranda Chiquita Banana into positions where they'll have the maximum public exposure possible, for as long as possible. I'd much rather have someone so hopelessly clueless she'll be a perennial laughingstock, than leave her hopelessly Dumbocrat seat in the Bronx to someone with the Trifecta of Awful that is stupid, evil, and effective, which was the brief of the old pol she's nominally slated to replace in the upcoming pro forma election in her district. Barring Christmas in November.

A couple of more such phenomenal gaffes by Ms. Avocado Pendejo-Chavez, and I'm seriously considering sending her campaign cash money to insure her ascendancy to the Mad Maxine Chair of Luntard University.

Byśmy my dziś żyć mogli. ONI dawali Swe ŻYCIE, a my nie możemy uczcić ich w ten sposób chociażby przez tych 63 dni ??? Mały ŻOŁNIERZ Zginął od kuli niewmieckiego bandyty w 21 Dniu Powstania, aJego Historia znika z czołówki Niepoprawnych w 9 dniu ?  Obecnie jestem w trakcie rozmów z Gazetami Polonijnymi tu w USA, rozmawiałem już z redakcją White Eagle z Bostonu i z Redakcją Nowego Dziennika z Nowego Jorku. Obie Redaktor Naczelne, były bardzo zainteresowane i poruszone HISTORIĄ TEGO MAŁEGO BOHATERA, Sugerowałem, żeby ukazał się obszerny artykuł, może wkładka w rocznicę dnia Jego śmierci. Redaktor Naczelna, z Nowego Dziennika, w trakcie mojej z Nią rozmowy, weszła na stronę www.niepoprawni.pl i czytała mój wpis. Teraz TO będzie niemożliwe. Jeszcze wiele redakcji zostało i wiele gazet, z którymi chcę się skontaktować w Sprawie oddania Hołdu Bohaterowi, nagłaśniając HISTORIĘ wśród całej Światowej Polonijnej społeczności.  Więc mam Prośbę. Proszę Umieść Gawrionie  te dwa wpisy jak było do wczoraj. Przywróć je.

Niech pozostają te wpisy przez 63 DNI, tak długo Jak Trwało Powstanie. ONI Ginęli, a my uczcijmy ich chociaż w TEN sposób. Za chwilę będę kontaktował się z Kanadą i z Australią, no i jeszcze mam z 10 redakcji Gazet Polonijnych tu w USA.

          Man arrested after making Twitter threat against ICE agents, Rep. Scalise responds (Update)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

A man for Cambridge, Massachusetts was arrested Thursday morning in New York City for soliciting murder-for-hire against ICE agents. Brandon J. Ziobrowski, who went by @vin_II on tweeted this message in early July: “I am broke but will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills an ice agent. @me seriously who else can pledge get in on this let’s make this work.”

I suspect someone on the left will shortly be claiming this was a joke and just part of the way progressives on Twitter talk about federal agents (I’m counting on you, Vox, don’t let me down). But a Department of Justice press release notes this wasn’t the first time Ziobrowski had said something violent and unhinged on Twitter:

According to court documents, in 2009 Ziobrowski created a Twitter account registered under the username @Vine_II. Over time, Ziobrowski’s tweets became more violent and threatening. For instance, it is alleged that he repeatedly tweeted his desire to “slit” Senator John McCain’s throat. Then, beginning around February 2018, Ziobrowski allegedly began posting tweets that promoted violence against law enforcement. For example, a Feb. 24, 2018, tweet read: “Guns should only be legal for shooting the police like the second amendment intended.”

In March 2018 Ziobrowski allegedly started tweeting threatening messages against federal law enforcement agents that work for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). On March 1, 2018, in response to a tweet from the ICE Field Office stating that ICE officers put their “lives on the line to arrest criminal aliens,” Ziobrowski posted a message that read: “Thank you ICE for putting your lives on the line and hopefully dying I guess so there’s less of you?”

Rep. Steve Scalise was quick to ask whether Democrats felt any responsibility for Ziobrowski’s behavior:

Scalise obviously has a unique position to worry about threats like this. James Hodkinson went from popping off on Facebook to popping off shots at Republican officials at a baseball field in Alexandria. He nearly killed Rep. Scalise and another man (and wounded several others). Ziobrowski’s escalating, violent language is cause for concern.

Scalise’s tweet also raises a point about how Democrats frequently play the “climate of hate” blame game, which may be his intent in asking the question he does. Every time there is a burst of political violence, the left rushes to blame the right. Often, as happened after the Tucson shooting, the left doesn’t even wait for evidence to support their claims, they just start assigning blame to the usual suspects. In some cases, they report false connections that don’t exist and in others, they ignore evidence that doesn’t fit their narrative (Remember the “Tea Party terrorist” who concluded his manifesto by quoting the Communist Manifesto?).

The left is always eager to have a national conversation about the climate of hate if they think the right will take the blame. But after the shooting of police officers in Dallas, Baton Rouge, or New York City, or the assassination attempt against Rep. Scalise and other Republicans they quickly forget how the climate of hate works and change the subject. So now is a good time to ask if they want to keep playing that game. My guess is they will decline, at least in this instance.

Ultimately, people are responsible for their own behavior. Ziobrowski sounds deranged and was obviously worked up over the news about ICE. But turning that into a suggestion of murdering agents is on him. It would be nice if Democrats could say the same the next time some ostensibly right-wing nut makes a threat, but I won’t hold my breath.

Finally, it bothers me that Ziobrowski faces up to five years in prison if convicted, which means he could see more jail time than Antifa goon Eric Clanton who was caught on video hitting people over the head with a bike lock. We’ll have to wait and see what justice looks like in this case.

Update: Ziobrowski was in court today and has been released on bond:
