          Prairie Grove D-46 board votes to move forward with facility upgrades      Cache   Translate Page      
The Prairie Grove District 46 School Board voted Tuesday night to move forward with a plan to upgrade portions of the grade-school building.

The board voted unanimously for a $430,700 contract with Chicago-based firm CannonDesign. The firm will create a proposal for architectural and engineering services for summer 2019 projects.

The firm's services include schematic design, design development, construction documents, bidding and construction administration. The firm assumes the district will hire a construction manager, according to board documents. Among the base projects to be designed and later bid on: the “must do” health and safety improvements, and the “need to do” such as creating one centralized library for both the elementary and middle schools and new family/consumer science and STEM spaces in the current middle school library. The estimated cost for the "base" projects: $2.7 million.

Two "alternate scope" projects — adding air conditioning in the elementary school and a single-point entry for both schools — were also included. The estimated costs: $775,000.

The actual costs for the construction work will come after the project goes out to bid in early 2019.

"We want to try to do as many of these projects next summer in 2019 as possible," said Superintendent John Bute, adding that CanonDesign won't get the full $430,700 if the projects don't come to fruition.

"There are parts of the project that we are required by law to do. There are health and life safety findings that were done in a 10-year public safety audit of public schools," he said. "There were some things that were discovered that aren't current and need to be up to code. We absolutely will be doing those projects. ... Most of these are things you wouldn't necessarily see: electrical work, mechanicals, plumbing."

Bute also said adding air conditioning in the elementary school building has been a long time coming. The school, located at 3225 Route 176, has about 700 students.

          Re: People Are “Fighting For Food” As Authorities Warn Florence “Could Produce A Disaster Comparable To 2005’s Hurricane Katrina”      Cache   Translate Page      

Wars are good for the economy. Wars do NOT cause economic down turns..........liberals DO!!!!!!!!!

THE REASON FOR THE CRASH

Do liberals ever have a clue? Do they ever know facts? Do you know why the crashed happened? Do you have any clue? Have you ever heard of sub-prime mortgage? The Left created and institutionalized the sub-prime mortgage, and it started in Chicago where ACORN pioneered the concept and shook down area banks for risky minority loans with protests and harassment. Clinton signed a revision to the CRA and the rest is history. Banks didn't want to give those shaky loans and anyone with more than a few brain cells would know that. They were pushed into doing it by the government.
0lair was an advisor to the Communist ACORN at the time they were testing the sub-prime strategy in Chicago.
Dodd-Frank was the uber ironic legislation that moronically passed through Congress and is now destroying small and mid-sized banks. Chris Dodd and Barney Frank were the heads of their respective oversight committees and neither did anything to prevent Fannie and Freddie from churning out hundreds of billions in bad loans and worthless mortgage backed securities. It was TOTALLY the fault of the Commies, posing as Democrats. The banks are hardly perfect, but they didn't cause the collapse.
Banks are where capital comes from. Without capital, capitalism stalls, just like the Commies wanted. The sub-prime loan scheme, followed by the ridiculously restrictive over-reaction of Frank-Dodd has locked up a huge amount of desperately needed capital. The whole thing was planned and was intentional, per the Cloward-Piven strategy to bankrupt the economy as a way to destroy capitalism and usher in socialism.
Europe has been doing the same thing Obama wants to do, only for far longer. Socialism doesn't work. Capitalism does, but Europe hasn't been capitalistic, in the true sense of the word, in a long time.

SAP introduces intelligent capabilities for digital supply chain

CHICAGO, Sept. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SAP SE (NYSE : SAP ) today announced new features to digitally optimize the supply chain and infuse it with intelligence from product design and production to delivery, operations and service. With the integration of SAP S/4HANA® to digital supply chain solutions from SAP, companies can gain new insights, make predictions and instantly adapt in an agile supply chain that extends to customers and supplier networks. The announcement was made at IMTS USA, being held Sept. 10–15 in Chicago, Illinois.

SAP's leading presence and innovation in supply chain management continues to help companies around the world embrace Industry 4.0 technologies including the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, and machine learning–enabled automation. The latest solution updates enable an integrated supply chain and manufacturing environment with enhanced capabilities for production planning and scheduling, availability and fulfillment, compliance, health and safety, and production engineering and operations.

Highlights of the new capabilities include:

          Blaming NRA "Inaction"      Cache   Translate Page      
Country singer Eric Church (what does HE know?) blames the NRA “for their inaction on gun control.” Oh, RIGHT! What would he have them do? Forget that not a SINGLE anti-gun law now in effect has done a single thing to stop the “gun violence” that goes on, every day? Stop training people in RESPONSIBLE gun handling so they won’t accidentally shoot people? People like Church like to make pronouncements like this, but they don’t have any answers. If they did, they’d make them public. But all they can talk about is the FAILED laws that do nothing except make it easier for those who IGNORE anti-gun laws to victimize people who OBEY them. The NRA is the only “responsible party” in this. They support REAL solutions that the anti-gun fools reject, out of hand, in their ignorance.I wouldn’t believe there are so many people out thee who are so STUPID if I didn’t see the evidence of it, every day, as the anti-gun fools go about, making their USELESS laws and braying about people who oppose their stupid laws. Places like Chicago, which has all their stupid laws in place, also have some of the highest “gun violence” numbers going. Why is that? Because their laws are USELESS, that’s why. Anti-gun fools hate it when we cite things like this because it is TRUE, and they can’t handle truth. (The Hill)

          JPMorgan's experimental investment in Detroit was so successful that it's decided to invest $500 million in up-and-coming cities      Cache   Translate Page      

jamie dimon

  • JPMorgan Chase launched AdvancingCities, a $500-million, five-year initiative for investing in emerging cities around the world.
  • It is an outgrowth of the multi-million dollar investments in Detroit, Chicago, and DC that began in 2014.
  • Up to half of the allocated money will be used for low-cost loans, with the rest used for philanthropic purposes.
  • This article is part of Business Insider's ongoing series on Better Capitalism.

JPMorgan Chase announced Wednesday that it is now accepting applications to participate in its new $500 million AdvancingCities initiative, which will invest in cities that are overcoming years of hardship.

It's a major expansion of a plan that began in 2013, when JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon pushed for a way to help Detroit after it declared bankruptcy. Starting the next year, it began closely working with Mayor Mike Duggan in distributing low-cost loans, renovating affordable housing, and training workforces. Since 2014, the bank has invested more than $100 million into the city.

Following success in Detroit, the bank then began investing in a similar way in Chicago and Washington, DC, and expanded the Entrepreneurs of Color Fund from Detroit to Chicago, the South Bronx, and San Francisco. The AdvancingCities competition is a way to bring learnings from these prior experiences to a new set of cities.

"I think the biggest thing that we have concluded is that the only places that we can be really effective in is where you have real collaboration on the ground with the political leadership, the private sector, the nonprofit sector," JPMorgan's head of corporate responsibility, Peter Scher, told Business Insider.

The $500 million will be split between low-cost loans offered through the AdvancingCities Investment Fund, and philanthropic spending.

Investments work best when partners identify opportunity

Scher explained that Detroit has been an ideal case study for the new initiative, and that it only took off once JPMorgan started responding to specific requests from partners. "I think the Entrepreneurs of Color is a great example," Scher said, referring to the fund that offers loans to businesses owned by people of color.

The JPMorgan team set up quarterly meetings with Mayor Duggan to discuss its investments, and in one meeting about a year in, Duggan said, "The problem I see in the city is there are a lot of black, Hispanic, Asian entrepreneurs who can't get access to capital and want to start businesses."

The bank then partnered with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to respond to this. Scher said it demonstrated that his team had the capability to toss money around, but that to actually accomplish something it needed to have partners, like the city's mayor, identify a challenge and then find a solution.

Duggan told us that, "Pretty much everything's worked," in regards to JPMorgan's investments, noting that for both his city and others that will partner with the bank, "as long as you're disciplined in what you're doing, you can have a major impact."

JPMorgan is looking to build long-term value for its shareholders

Scher said that over the next five years, data suggests that conservatively speaking, the $250 million from the AdvancingCities investment fund will leverage a total of $1 billion in spending when factoring in outside investment attracted by JPMorgan's activity. He said the initiative can support "up to 30" cities, but that the number is less important than the potential for impact in a city, and that there will not be an equal portioning of investments to each winner.

AdvancingCities is overseen by Scher and his team, as well as an advisory council of former mayors and business leaders, and will utilize an estimated 200 JPMorgan executives working 3-4 week shifts in particular cities.

Scher told us that if the program were solely about building goodwill, there were plenty of easier options to pursue, and that he considers AdvancingCities to be a business investment. "I would argue to our shareholders that if the economy of Detroit or Chicago or Washington is growing, and more people are getting jobs and more businesses are being created and you've got small business growth, that's a good long-term bet for JPMorgan Chase," he said.

He continued: "And so I actually think that this is kind of a new way of thinking about business investments and thinking long-term about the viability of success of our communities. And our general view is that if the economies of these cities is growing, JPMorgan will grow with it."

Manny Ocbazghi contributed reporting.

Phantoms, elves and Frank N. Furters take the stage this fall.

With the announcement in spring that the Arkansas Repertory Theatre was immediately suspending operations, theater aficionados found themselves looking to alternative sources to fulfill their drama desires. The announcement that The Rep will return next year is the big news for spring, but for fall, local theater venues have stepped up to the proverbial plate to provide quality entertainment, with spectacles ranging from professional touring productions, to community gems, to dinner and a show.

Celebrity Attractions brings to Robinson Center Performance Hall a trio of Broadway sensations. From Oct.12-14, the touring production of the Tony Award-winning "Jersey Boys" — based on the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons — graces the stage with hits like "Big Girls Don't Cry" and "Walk Like A Man." Smash No. 2 will play Nov. 20-25, when "Love Never Dies," Andrew Lloyd Webber's sequel to "The Phantom of the Opera," in which the Phantom lures his beloved Christine and their son to Coney Island, comes to Little Rock. Finally, Robinson hosts yet another show based on familiar characters: "Finding Neverland," a foray into the life of "Peter Pan" playwright J.M. Barrie (based on the Academy Award-winning film of the same name) Dec. 22-23.

For entertaining meals, Murry's Dinner Playhouse is a must. Continuing its jaw-dropping schedule of almost one new show a month, Murry's fall is packed with laughs. Running through Sept. 22 is "Social Security," a Broadway comedy about an 83-year-old Cinderella who teaches her unusual family that it's never too late to find your Prince Charming. "The Foreigner," about a pathologically shy Englishman who goes to a Southern boarding house and pretends not to understand English so he can rest, runs Sept. 25-Oct 30. Another Southern romp, "The Hallelujah Girls," in which five feisty female friends decide to shake up their lives in comical ways, plays Oct. 23-Nov. 17. For the holidays, Murry's will bring the smash-movie-turned-smash-musical "Elf," in which Santa's elf Buddy discovers he's actually a human and journeys to find his birth father, to its stage.

At the Argenta Community Theater in North Little Rock, the Upright Citizens Brigade Touring Co. will perform as part of the ACANSA Arts Festival Sept. 20-21. A show for fans of sketch comedy like "Saturday Night Live," the Upright Citizens Brigade is an improvisation group that had its origins in Chicago with founders Amy Poehler and Little Rock native Matt Besser (along with Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh).

If participation comedy is your thing, make a visit to the Trieschmann Fine Arts Building at Hendrix College in Conway for The Red Curtain Theater's production of "The Rocky Horror Show" Oct. 19-28. All sweet transvestites and cryogenically preserved motor-bikers should carefully select their viewing dates, however, as the Reynolds Performance Hall at the University of Central Arkansas will also be providing popular entertainment, with the razzle-dazzle knockout musical "Chicago," Oct. 27-28.

Dr. Frank N. Furter makes a 10-performance return to Little Rock, too, for Club Sway's fourth annual presentation of "Rocky Horror," this year under the direction of Brittany Sparkles. Tickets to Sway's super glam rock show sell out every year, so head to the club's Facebook page and get your tickets (and $5 prop bag) early.

Another classic, the Tony Award-winning "The Secret Garden," the tale of a spoiled orphan and the transformative power of a discovered garden, will be presented by the Pocket Community Theatre in Hot Springs Oct. 5-14. The theme of innocence continues with the Nov. 30-Dec. 9 production of "Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus," a play inspired by a simple, poignant letter written by an 8-year-old to the editor of the New York Sun.

For Christmas in Northwest Arkansas (Nov. 28-Dec. 30), Fayetteville's TheatreSquared will present "Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley," a play set two years after the events of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice." As the family gathers at the Darcys to celebrate the holiday, Mary, the bookish middle child of the Bennets, finally has her day. TheatreSquared's season kicks off Sept. 23, with "Once," a tale of an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant who are drawn together by their love of music. The winner of a Tony, a Grammy and an Oscar, "Once" has been intimately reimagined for TheatreSquared.


          Sixty years ago, Little Rock closed all its public high schools rather than desegregate them      Cache   Translate Page      
The tossed year.

On Sept. 27, 1958, 60 years ago this month, Little Rock decided by a vote of 19,470 to 7,561 to keep its public high schools closed rather than desegregate them. Although the events of school desegregation at Central High in September 1957 are etched in the local, state and national consciousness, the events of the following year are unjustly overlooked. When they are mentioned at all, people refer to them as the "Lost Year." The term is misleading because the year was not lost, but rather tossed — that is, thrown willfully away by a predominantly white Little Rock electorate that was hoodwinked by segregationist politicians into believing that the city could survive without public schools. Events proved just how wrong those politicians were.

School closing was the result of an ongoing legal battle over school desegregation. On Feb. 20, 1958, the Little Rock School Board petitioned U.S. District Court Judge Harry J. Lemley for a two-and-half-year delay in its desegregation plan. On June 21, Lemley granted the delay on the grounds that the city needed a cooling-off period after the clashes witnessed in September 1957. On Aug. 18, NAACP attorney Wiley Branton successfully had the delay overruled on appeal. School board attorneys then appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Since the Court did not convene until Oct. 6, it could not hear the appeal until after the Little Rock schools opened, presumably on a segregated basis, in September.

On Aug. 25, U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren announced that the court would meet in a special session Aug. 28 to hear the Little Rock case. On Sept. 12, the court ordered the school board to proceed with its desegregation plan. In the landmark ruling of Cooper v. Aaron, the court said that violence and disruption could not be used as an excuse for delaying school desegregation. If the court had allowed a delay, it would have signaled that mob rule could be used to stall the enforcement of federal laws. The federal government afterward indicated that it was prepared to support the opening of schools with the assistance of federal marshals if necessary. Everything appeared to be in place to ensure a smooth and orderly process of desegregation, in contrast to the scenes of lawlessness in 1957.

Gov. Orval Faubus had other plans. While desegregation was being debated in the courts, Faubus made his move. On Aug. 26, the governor presided over a special session of the Arkansas General Assembly that pushed through six bills providing him with sweeping powers to uphold segregation. One bill allowed Faubus to close any school ordered to desegregate by federal order. With the school closed, voters in the local school district would participate in a referendum to decide if the school should reopen or not. On the day that the court ordered desegregation to proceed, Faubus closed all of Little Rock's public high schools. In the referendum held Sept. 27, the governor handily stacked the cards in his favor by providing a single choice between keeping the schools closed or accepting "complete and total integration."

The morning after the referendum result, Faubus pressured the school board into leasing the public high schools to the Little Rock Private School Corp. (LRPSC) for private operation. NAACP attorneys won an injunction to stop this. Faubus then assisted the LRPSC in purchasing private buildings with public funds to operate as schools. That year, white students variously attended private segregated schools, schools in other Arkansas districts, out-of-state schools or took correspondence courses through the University of Arkansas. With access to fewer resources, black students were hit the hardest. Most attended classes in other Arkansas districts or went to an out-of-state school. Some took a correspondence course offered by L.M. Christophe, the principal of the black Horace Mann High School. The state retained both white and black teachers on full pay to preside over empty classrooms in closed schools. The only thing that took place in public high schools that year was Central High's football program, which was apparently the single part of its educational services that the city felt it could not survive without.

Faubus reaped the political benefits of school closing. In November 1958, he became only the second governor in Arkansas history to win a third consecutive term in office. The leading segregationist voice in the state, Arkansas Association of White Citizens' Council head Jim Johnson, won election to the Arkansas Supreme Court. In a shocking result, Little Rock segregationist and school board member Dale Alford defeated, as a write-in candidate, incumbent Congressman Brooks Hays, who had held the seat for 16 years. Meanwhile, all of the Little Rock School Board (except for Alford, who would soon leave to take up his role as congressman) resigned. As one of its final acts in office, the board voted to buy out the contract of school Superintendent Virgil Blossom, the architect of Little Rock's school desegregation plan.

The election of a new school board proved a watershed event. At the school-closing referendum, a group of white women had formed the Women's Emergency Committee to Open Our Schools (WEC). At its helm was Adolphine Fletcher Terry, the wife of former Arkansas Congressman David D. Terry. Although unsuccessful in getting the schools opened, the WEC, itself segregated, remained an important lobbying force within the white community. At the school board election, Terry managed to persuade five candidates to represent business interests against attempts by segregationists to dominate the school board. In a closely contested election, a split ticket of three business candidates and three segregationists won.

The partial victory belatedly stirred Little Rock's white businessmen to speak up about school desegregation. There was a rising awareness of the community damage being done. Teachers, unoccupied in empty classrooms, were leaving the public school system in droves. The education of the city's students was being severely disrupted. And, of more pressing concern to the businessmen, the city's economy was suffering badly. Not one new industry had chosen to locate in Little Rock since the events of September 1957. It was claimed that the negative headlines surrounding school desegregation had cost the city five new industrial plants that would have brought in $1 million in revenue and 300 new jobs.

E. Grainger Williams, the new president of the Little Rock Chamber of Commerce, questioned the wisdom of school closing in his inaugural speech on Jan. 14, 1959. Williams told the audience that, "no matter what our personal feelings might be," the "time has come for us to evaluate ... the cost of the lack of public education." The politicians did not seem to care. The 1959 Arkansas General Assembly passed another 32 pro-segregation bills into law.

A showdown between the business community and committed segregationists in the city finally came in May 1959. At a meeting of the new school board May 5, segregationist members attempted to push through measures to remove anyone unsympathetic to their cause from the public school system. Blocking each of these measures, the school board members representing business interests then withdrew from the meeting to dissolve the quorum. However, after they left, Ed McKinley, the segregationist president of the school board, ruled that the meeting could continue as normal. Segregationists proceeded to make a series of arbitrary decisions about the running of the school system. Most dramatic of all was the decision not to renew the contracts of 44 public school employees, including seven principals, 34 teachers and three secretaries.

On May 8, a group of downtown business and civic leaders met to form a new organization, Stop This Outrageous Purge (STOP). The organization was dedicated to recalling the three segregationist school board members for election. On May 15, segregationists formed a Committee to Retain Our Segregated Schools (CROSS) to recall the business community representatives. On May 25, the day of the recall election, the vote narrowly went the businessmen's way, with all the business representatives reinstated and all the segregationist candidates dismissed from the school board. The new board, taking the election as a mandate to reopen the schools, began preparations for token desegregation in September 1959 by assigning three black students to Central High and three to Hall High. On June 18, the U.S. District Court upheld the contention of NAACP attorneys that Arkansas's school-closing laws were unconstitutional.

In a surprise move designed to stymie attempts by Faubus to prevent the schools from reopening, the school board announced in July that the school year would begin a month early, on Aug. 12. When the schools reopened as planned, three black students, Effie Jones, Elsie Robinson and Estella Thompson, peacefully entered Hall High under a city police guard. At the state Capitol, 1,000 whites attended a segregationist rally. Later, around 200 segregationists marched on Central High. City policemen firmly enforced order as two of the Little Rock Nine, Jefferson Thomas and Elizabeth Eckford, entered the school. Carlotta Walls, another of the Nine, and the third black student assigned to Central that year, had not yet returned from completing summer school in Chicago. For segregationists, the battle had been lost, and their struggle to retain strictly segregated public schools was finally over. The struggle to achieve the meaningful desegregation of the city's schools, and to ensure equal access to a quality education for all of the city's students, continued on, as it still does today.

John A. Kirk is the Donaghey Distinguished Professor of History and director of the Anderson Institute on Race and Ethnicity at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

          Nano-Sandwich Design Found to Improve Heat Transfer for 2D Materials in Nanoelectronics      Cache   Translate Page      

Potentially in just months from now we will be seeing the first processors manufactured on a 7 nm process ship and with them a likely significant step for performance and efficiency. As impressive as this transition might be though, we are approaching the limits of what is possible with silicon-based electronics. Among the materials being considered and developed on to replace ubiquitous silicon are 2D materials, such as graphene, and now a solution has been found for what would likely have been a significant issue.

Among the reasons there is a desire to move to 2D materials is that they can allow for much smaller chips to be made, compared to traditional 3D materials, and they can also bring other, special properties. The issue is that components made with them are prone to overheating. This may seem odd, especially for graphene which is a good thermal conductor, but transferring heat from the material to the silicon base it is built on is not so easy. However, researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have discovered that by adding an ultra-thin layer of another material on top can significantly improve this heat transfer. The researchers tested this with silicon oxide as the base, carbide for 2D material, and an ultra-thin layer of aluminum oxide encapsulating it and found the conductance was twice what it was without the aluminum oxide.

This test setup is only an experimental model, but it does still demonstrate a way to increase heat transfer, which is critical for potentially making 2D nanoelectronics in the future. Next the researchers want to work with different materials for the encapsulating layer, to see if this can improve the heat transfer even more.

          2018 fall Arkansas theater preview      Cache   Translate Page      
Phantoms, elves and Frank N. Furters take the stage this fall.

With the announcement in spring that the Arkansas Repertory Theatre was immediately suspending operations, theater aficionados found themselves looking to alternative sources to fulfill their drama desires. The announcement that The Rep will return next year is the big news for spring, but for fall, local theater venues have stepped up to the proverbial plate to provide quality entertainment, with spectacles ranging from professional touring productions, to community gems, to dinner and a show.

Celebrity Attractions brings to Robinson Center Performance Hall a trio of Broadway sensations. From Oct.12-14, the touring production of the Tony Award-winning "Jersey Boys" — based on the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons — graces the stage with hits like "Big Girls Don't Cry" and "Walk Like A Man." Smash No. 2 will play Nov. 20-25, when "Love Never Dies," Andrew Lloyd Webber's sequel to "The Phantom of the Opera," in which the Phantom lures his beloved Christine and their son to Coney Island, comes to Little Rock. Finally, Robinson hosts yet another show based on familiar characters: "Finding Neverland," a foray into the life of "Peter Pan" playwright J.M. Barrie (based on the Academy Award-winning film of the same name) Dec. 22-23.

For entertaining meals, Murry's Dinner Playhouse is a must. Continuing its jaw-dropping schedule of almost one new show a month, Murry's fall is packed with laughs. Running through Sept. 22 is "Social Security," a Broadway comedy about an 83-year-old Cinderella who teaches her unusual family that it's never too late to find your Prince Charming. "The Foreigner," about a pathologically shy Englishman who goes to a Southern boarding house and pretends not to understand English so he can rest, runs Sept. 25-Oct 30. Another Southern romp, "The Hallelujah Girls," in which five feisty female friends decide to shake up their lives in comical ways, plays Oct. 23-Nov. 17. For the holidays, Murry's will bring the smash-movie-turned-smash-musical "Elf," in which Santa's elf Buddy discovers he's actually a human and journeys to find his birth father, to its stage.

At the Argenta Community Theater in North Little Rock, the Upright Citizens Brigade Touring Co. will perform as part of the ACANSA Arts Festival Sept. 20-21. A show for fans of sketch comedy like "Saturday Night Live," the Upright Citizens Brigade is an improvisation group that had its origins in Chicago with founders Amy Poehler and Little Rock native Matt Besser (along with Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh).

If participation comedy is your thing, make a visit to the Trieschmann Fine Arts Building at Hendrix College in Conway for The Red Curtain Theater's production of "The Rocky Horror Show" Oct. 19-28. All sweet transvestites and cryogenically preserved motor-bikers should carefully select their viewing dates, however, as the Reynolds Performance Hall at the University of Central Arkansas will also be providing popular entertainment, with the razzle-dazzle knockout musical "Chicago," Oct. 27-28.

Dr. Frank N. Furter makes a 10-performance return to Little Rock, too, for Club Sway's fourth annual presentation of "Rocky Horror," this year under the direction of Brittany Sparkles. Tickets to Sway's super glam rock show sell out every year, so head to the club's Facebook page and get your tickets (and $5 prop bag) early.

Another classic, the Tony Award-winning "The Secret Garden," the tale of a spoiled orphan and the transformative power of a discovered garden, will be presented by the Pocket Community Theatre in Hot Springs Oct. 5-14. The theme of innocence continues with the Nov. 30-Dec. 9 production of "Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus," a play inspired by a simple, poignant letter written by an 8-year-old to the editor of the New York Sun.

For Christmas in Northwest Arkansas (Nov. 28-Dec. 30), Fayetteville's TheatreSquared will present "Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley," a play set two years after the events of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice." As the family gathers at the Darcys to celebrate the holiday, Mary, the bookish middle child of the Bennets, finally has her day. TheatreSquared's season kicks off Sept. 23, with "Once," a tale of an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant who are drawn together by their love of music. The winner of a Tony, a Grammy and an Oscar, "Once" has been intimately reimagined for TheatreSquared.

          The 1 Simple Mistake That Could Be Slowing You Down on Long Runs      Cache   Translate Page      

It was after my longest run ever - 12 miles, at that point - that I got the hunch I messed up. The last two or three miles were a harder slog than they should have been; I felt like I needed a boost to snap me out of my physical fatigue and mental grogginess. I set out hydrated and well-rested and didn't have any nagging injuries. I also set out with nothing but a double espresso in my stomach and didn't consume any calories during the run. Rookie mistake.

My fueling fail prompted me to ask my coach, Bec Wilcock, to share the nuts and bolts on what to eat and when to eat on a distance run. Coach Bec is training my Nike Women's Marathon Project team (mercilessly, I might add) for the Chicago Marathon. Her own credentials are impressive: she's a seasoned ultramarathoner and all-around powerhouse who knows a thing or two about keeping your body fueled to tackle major tests of endurance.

Here's the simple science behind why it's vital to refuel mid long run: your body needs glucose (sugar) to burn. If it doesn't have it, it will move onto your body's glycogen stores. Our livers and muscles store glycogen, and once the muscle's stores are depleted, extreme physical fatigue - or "bonking," in runner's parlance - sets in. Read on for Coach Bec's advice on how to figure out what fueling plan works for you.

31 years ago today yesterday (September 11, 1987)  in  (boring ass) Corona, CA
the world was blessed with the birth of none other than bae-wolf himself:

Tyler Lee Hoechlin!

💚💚💚




Tyler has been (sort of) quoted as saying that he does not usually like to celebrate his bday on the actual day anymore, as he
"feels bad celebrating something on such a horrible day in history".
He opts for something small with family if need be, saving the true celebration for before or after.

I 100% appreciate that sentiment, but I still want to take a moment to appreciate him~

Birthday shoutouts from ex Teen Wolf co-stars and good friends:

Some quick fun facts about TyHo (for those who are only lite fans:)

  • He has 3 siblings (An older sister, brother, & 1 younger brother)

  • For his role as "Alpha Derek" in Teen Wolf, he had to gain about 15 pounds of pure muscle

  • Some of his favorite sports teams are the Chicago Cubs, the LA Kings & Dodgers AND the Anaheim Angels (what kind of Switzerland kween?!) He also stans the USC football team. Basically, he's as SoCal as you can fucking get.

  • Turned down the role of Emmett Cullen in the Twilight franchise because he was more dedicated to baseball at the time

  • His favorite foods are Mexican & Italian (un muchacho after my own heart!)


Tyler's next project 'Bigger' (a biographical look at how brothers Joe (Hoechlin) & Ben Weider launched a fitness empire and along the way discovered Arnold Schwarzenegger) will have it's premiere in Las Vegas this Wednesday (September 13th) to coincide with the Mr. Olympia competition that was created by the Weider brothers themselves. The film is set to hit theaters October 13th.

William Boyington (1818–1898, US), Bellinger House, 2121 North Hudson Avenue, Chicago, late 1860s. Image © 2018 Davis Art Images. (8S-13810)

As autumn is right around the corner, my mind drifts back to one of my favorite pastimes in my hometown, Chicago. I would walk for hours in the various neighborhoods near where I lived looking at the gorgeous late-1800s architecture. During the 1980s, there was a boom in restoring historic properties. I lived about seven blocks north of this house, which I often walked by and loved. If it is true that eight blocks in Chicago equals a mile, then I must have walked thousands of miles in my life there, and saw so many wonderful, restored old houses. This posting will feature the “Italianate” revival style.

I’m pretty sure I walked by the Bellinger House dozens of times in my Chicago period. I asked an art historian friend once about the entrance on the “second floor,” and he told me that it was routinely done in Chicago neighborhoods before the storm drains were perfected. This way, only the kitchen and storage would be flooded when the sewers would inevitably back up. Hence, also the reason for the raised sidewalks of wooden planks at the time.

This house was named for the guy who commissioned it, a Chicago police officer named Richard Bellinger. There is a story about how he saved his house from the Great Fire in October of 1871. Since the fire burned all the way from De Koven Street to Fullerton Avenue (just north of Bellinger House), a lot of buildings around the house were destroyed. Bellinger supposedly saved his house by first dousing it with water from his well. When that ran out, he supposedly used cider from his cellar. He also tore up the wooden sidewalk and patted out sparks.

The Italianate style was popular in the US between the 1840s and 1880s. Before the fire, Chicago homes in the style were block-like residences like the Bellinger House. The style was meant to emulate an Italian “country villa,” though I’m hard-pressed to see that in this building. Stylistic features in Chicago included decorative hoods on the windows, an accentuated verticality, decorative balustrades, and restrained classical elements like the Ionic capitals on the porch.

The architect of this house, William Boyington (1818–1898), was conversant in numerous revival styles for his designs. Born in Southwick, Massachusetts, he trained initially, as many American architects did during the 1800s, as a carpenter. He then apprenticed in a New York architecture firm before moving to the quickly growing metropolis of Chicago in 1853. Because of the lack of architects in the city, he was able to get commissions all over the upper Midwest. Aside from Italianate, he designed many private homes in the Gothic Revival, Romanesque Revival, and Beaux-Arts Classicism (Second Empire Baroque).

Boyington’s most enduring monument in Chicago is the Water Tower (Romanesque Revival), which survived the Fire and still bears some burn marks.

Here are some variations on the Italianate style. There are a lot of examples in Charleston, South Carolina, because, fortunately, the city was not messed up to the extent of cities like Atlantaduring the Civil War (1860–1865).

This Autenrieth and Collins design is still preserved in downtown Philadelphia, although the Lit Brothers stores went under in 1977. In 1979, the building was placed on the National Register of Historic Buildings. This gorgeous building is a combination of cast iron with a facing of glazed brick and terracotta window surrounds.

          Southern Charm Cast Evacuates Charleston as Hurricane Florence Approaches      Cache   Translate Page      

Hurricane Florence is forecast to soon slam the coasts of North and South Carolina and many of the stars of Bravo's Southern Charm are getting the heck outta Charleston.

About 1 million people have been ordered to evacuate their homes before the storm—categorized as a Category 3 on Wednesday—makes landfall, which it is expected to do on Friday.

Austen Kroll: He traveled north and inland to Charlotte, North Carolina, to his family home.

"While I've Evac'ed home to Charlotte, I've rummaged the house for an old book to read, and stumbled upon a little light reading. Old family friends gave me this book in '96 to read to baby @kt_kroll!" he wrote on Instagram, referring to his sister Katie. "Can she claim to be a 90's kid? #auntflo #juniorkroll #96 #"90skid."

Kathryn Dennis: She traveled to Nashville on Tuesday.

Shep Rose: He flew to Chicago on Tuesday.

But before that, he had jokes.

Patricia Altschul: She is staying in Charleston and hunkering down and braving the storm! She posted on her Instagram page earlier this week a video of emergency staples she picked up on a Costco run, including Goldfish Crackers, KIND nut bars and SPAM.

"#hurricane #preparedness #costco plus dog food, gin and guns...Bring it on #florence #southerncharm," she wrote.

"House on lockdown...." she added. "Shutters wired over plywood, generator inspected, pool water lowered, cars in parking garage, all supplies bought, pets accounted for.... bring it on #hurricaneflorence #southerncharm."

"Hope you have enough martini ingredients @Pataltschul !" Rose tweeted.

Cameran Eubanks: It is unclear if she has left or plans to leave South Carolina.

She posted on her Instagram page earlier this week a screenshot of an emergency alert about Hurricane Florence, writing, "Ughhhhh!!! Turn Flo, TURN!!!"

          Stok AS Menipis, Harga Minyak Tembus USD 80 per Barel      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Chicago - Harga minyak naik pada perdagangan Rabu (Kamis pagi WIB), dengan Brent menyentuh level USD 80 per barel, setelah penurunan persediaan minyak mentah Amerika Serikat yang lebih besar dari perkiraan. Tak hanya itu, sanksi AS terhadap Iran juga menambah kekhawatiran atas pasokan minyak global.

Dilansir dari Reuters (Kamis (13/9/2018), harga minyak Brent naik USD 68 sen menjadi USD 79,74 per barel. Patokan harga minyak global itu sempat menyentuh level USD 80,13 per barel, level tertinggi sejak 22 Mei.

Harga minyak berjangka AS, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) naik USD 1,12 menjadi USD 70,37 per barel, tertinggi dalam sepekan terakhir.

Stok minyak AS tercatat turun 5,3 juta barel pada minggu lalu, Administrasi Informasi Energi AS (EIA) mengatakan pada hari Rabu. Sementara analis mengharapkan penurunan 805.000 barel.Faktor lain yang juga mendukung harga adalah kekhawatiran pasokan sekitar sanksi AS terhadap Iran.

Sejak musim semi, ketika pemerintahan Donald Trump mengatakan akan memberlakukan sanksi terhadap Iran, pedagang telah berfokus pada dampak potensialnya pada pasokan global. Sanksi yang akan diterapkan November ini akan mempengaruhi ekspor minyak Iran.

Menteri Energi Rusia Alexander Novak pada hari Rabu memperingatkan dampak sanksi AS terhadap Iran. “Ini adalah ketidakpastian besar di pasar - bagaimana negara-negara, yang membeli hampir 2 juta barel per hari (bph) minyak Iran, akan bertindak. Situasi harus diawasi dengan ketat, keputusan yang tepat harus diambil, ”katanya.

Novak mengatakan pasar minyak global "rapuh" karena risiko geopolitik dan gangguan pasokan, tetapi dia memastikan Rusia dapat meningkatkan produksi jika diperlukan.

Organisasi Negara Pengekspor Minyak (OPEC) memangkas proyeksi pertumbuhan permintaan minyak pada 2019 dalam laporan bulanannya dan mengatakan meningkatnya tantangan di beberapa negara berkembang dapat berdampak negatif terhadap pertumbuhan ekonomi global.  OPEC memperkirakan pertumbuhan permintaan 1,41 juta bph pada 2019, turun 20.000 bph dari perkiraan sebelumnya.

          September 12 - Who Is the Lamb of God?      Cache   Translate Page      

“The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, ‘Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! This is He on behalf of whom I said, “After me comes a Man who has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me”’” (John 1:29–30).

On the day after he spoke to the delegation, John “saw Jesus coming to him.” In keeping with his role as a herald, John immediately called the crowd’s attention to Him, exclaiming “Behold, the Lamb of God.”

The concept of a sacrificial Lamb was a familiar one to the Jewish people. All through Israel’s history, God had revealed clearly that sin and separation from Him could be removed only by blood sacrifices (cf. Lev. 17:11). They were also aware that Isaiah’s prophecy likened Messiah to “a lamb that is led to slaughter” (Isa. 53:7). Though Israel sought a Messiah who would be a prophet, king, and conqueror, God had to send them a Lamb. And He did.

The title “Lamb of God” foreshadows Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice on the cross for “the sin of the world.” With that brief statement John made it clear that the Messiah had come to deal with sin. The Old Testament is filled with the reality that the problem is sin—a problem at the heart of every person (Jer. 17:9). All men are sinful and incapable of changing the future or the present, or of repaying God for the sins of the past.

So who is the Lamb of God? He is Jesus, the only One who has the remedy to your sin problem.

Ask Yourself

We know that our sin, though dealt with ultimately and eternally, continues to be a problem for us to face and address. Are you surprised at the strength and tenacity it still wields within you? How do you go about quieting its ferocious appetite and considering yourself dead to it (See Rom. 6:11)?

          September 11 - John the Baptist Understands His Role      Cache   Translate Page      

“He said, ‘I am a voice of one crying in the wilderness, “Make straight the way of the Lord,” as Isaiah the prophet said” (John 1:23).

John the Baptist gained great notoriety quickly in Israel with his baptism and his message of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. With so many people flocking to him, the Jewish authorities sent a delegation of priests and Levites to investigate him.

First they asked John, “Who are you?” His behavior was certainly not what they would have expected from the son of a priest. John’s response, “I am not the Christ,” only added to their confusion. When John answered in the negative to their questions if he was Elijah or the Prophet, the exasperated members of the delegation then demanded, “Who are you, so that we may give an answer to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?” (John 1:19–22).

Rather than claiming to be someone important, he humbly referred to himself merely as “a voice of one crying in the wilderness.” In answering the delegation’s question about his identity, he shifted the focus away from himself and onto Christ. His quote of Isaiah 40:3, “Make straight the way of the Lord,” was a challenge both to the nation and to his questioners to prepare their hearts for the coming of the Messiah.

The imagery is of a road being leveled and smoothed out in preparation for the visit of an Eastern king. John and Isaiah likened the hearts of Messiah’s people to a desolate wilderness, through which a smooth, level road needed to be prepared for His coming. John was the laborer, preparing the road in advance of the King.

Ask Yourself

As you have opportunity to share the gospel with others, remind them that the road to Jesus is smooth and level—accessible not by special ability but by the calling, inviting grace of God. Thank God for those who pointed the way for you.

The Minnesota Vikings lost a key member of their offensive line Thursday when left guard Nick Easton was placed on injured reserve because of a bulging disc in his neck. Coach Mike Zimmer made the announcement at a news conference. Easton hadn't practiced since Aug. 3 because of the injury. He started 12 games in 2017 and five games the year before Barkevious Mingo Jersey (http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/barkevious-mingo-jersey-cheap) , playing both center and guard. Minnesota signed Easton to a one-year, $2.9 million contract in free agency. He'll be an unrestricted free agent after the season. The Vikings are also missing center Pat Elflein (ankle/shoulder) and right guard Mike Remmers (ankle). "I know everyone is nervous about our offensive line," Zimmer said. "But I like the mentality of those guys. I like how they work. I'm around them quite a bit, and they're going to figure out a way to get it done." Minnesota may turn to veteran Tom Compton to replace Easton. The Vikings acquired the Minnesota native in free agency after he spent one year with the Chicago Bears. Before that, he played for the Washington Redskins and Atlanta Falcons. "We have kind of had him on our radar for a few years Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey (http://www.packerscheapstore.com/ha-ha-clinton-dix-jersey-cheap) ," Zimmer said. "When he was at Washington, he played quite a bit. He played some of their big package. He played some on the offensive line at multiple positions. We felt like he'd be good." Second-year players Danny Isidora and Aviante Collins may be in the running to increase their role at guard. Easton was acquired by the Vikings in a 2015 trade from the San Francisco 49ers. He played his way into a starting role with the Vikings but missed the playoffs last season with a broken ankle that sent him to IR. His latest injury may cost him the entire 2018 season. "He's a tough guy that does a great job of finding a way to get his job done," Zimmer said earlier in the week. Minnesota plays its first preseason game Saturday night against the Denver Broncos. Former NFL head of officiating Mike Pereira is skeptical about the league’s new rule against lowering the helmet to initiate contact. Pereira said this morning on PFT Live that although NFL Network canceled his appearance this week, he visited the league office and spoke with the current head of officiating, Al Riveron Landon Collins Jersey (http://www.giantscheapstore.com/landon-collins-jersey-cheap) , and told Riveron that the officials are given an impossible task if they’re supposed to determine which of two linemen who collide head-first at the line of scrimmage initiated the contact. “Even though the NFL Network didn’t let me come on their show, I did visit their office and get the chance to speak with Al Riveron,” Pereira said. “I talked about how I felt it was going to be tough to officiate consistently. . . . Especially because they are pretty adamant that the rule is going to pertain to and be officiated in the tackle box, which I think is almost impossible.” Pereira said he wishes the NFL would focus on hits using the helmet involving ball carriers, tacklers Vincent Valentine Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/vincent-valentine-jersey-cheap) , quarterbacks and receivers, rather than down linemen. “In open space is where the rule needed to be officiated. Not in the tackle box,” Pereira said. However, there’s a silver lining to what Pereira is saying: He thinks calling the penalty is going to be so difficult that officials simply aren’t going to flag it very often, and instead the new rule will be enforced by fines from the league office Davon Godchaux Jersey (http://www.dolphinscheapstore.com/davon-godchaux-jersey-cheap) , rather than penalties on the field. “I still get a sense that we’re overhyping this change. We’re just not going to see the number of penalties that people are talking about,” Pereira said. “I think you’re going to see more fines than flags.” Pereira believes the officials will call the new penalty a lot in the preseason, but that once the games count for real, they’ll leave their flags in their pockets except on the most flagrant of hits. Which means this rule change might not be quite as big a deal as people think it is. Womens Patrick Omameh Jersey (http://www.officialusafootballs.com ew-york-giants/patrick-omameh-jersey)

The circus is expanding. by Rich Smith

The Seattle circus swings into Chicago for an extended stay. Teatro ZinZanni

Back in January of last year, Teatro ZinZanni didn't even know if they'd have a place to pitch their antique spiegeltent in Seattle.

Since then they've relocated to a more permanent location on the grounds of the former Red Hook Brewery in Woodinville, and today the circus announced an expansion to Chicago. Yayyyyy! But also, how the hell did that happen?

Rendering of the new tent inside the Cambria Hotel.
Rendering of the new tent inside the Cambria Hotel. Teatro ZinZanni

Over the phone, ZinZanni founder and creative director Norm Langill told me he'd been looking to set up a shop in Chicago for 10 years, but he was having trouble finding a place with tall enough ceilings. About a year ago, Lou Razin, president of a production company called Broadway in Chicago, contacted an associate of Langill's and said he found a spot that might work.

A crew had removed a dropped ceiling on the 14th floor of the Cambria Hotel, revealing a forgotten space just above above The Oriental Theatre. The room was tall enough for a spiegeltent, so Langill took it.

Langill then bought another tent from the Klessons, the family who made the other tents he has used for shows around Seattle and San Francisco. He plans to install it in the new space, along with a lobby and a kitchen. Most of the tent can fit in the elevator, but some pieces are so big that they have to cut a hole in the roof and bring them in via helicopter. "I'm looking forward to that helicopter ride," Langill says.

By next spring, ZinZanni hopes to mount their flagship show—Love, Chaos, & Dinner—with a cast that would be familiar to Seattleites who frequent the circus. Cabaret singer Lady Rizzo, and comedians Joe De Paul, Tim Tyler, and Frank Ferrante are all slated to perform. "Rock star caterer" Debbie Sharp, who's catered for the Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney, will handle the food and beverage menus.

Meanwhile, back in Woodinville, ZinZanni's busy setting up the old tent in preparation for the first show in its new home, Hollywood & Vine, which runs Nov. 1 through April 28, 2019. The Stranger describes the show as a "a vintage and magic-filled tribute to Tinseltown."


The goal is for the Woodinville location to serve as the "world headquarters" for ZinZanni, where they can store tents, work on shows, and teach cirque students in a new aerial studio. Beyond Chicago, the circus also hopes to find more permanent digs in San Francisco. "That idea of expanding to three cities—that's been in our mission for 15 years. It's taken a long time to do it," Langill says.

          When he was most needed, Seahawks linebacker Austin Calitro answered the call      Cache   Translate Page      

SEATTLE – One day a year, professional football players develop an uncommon fear of a phone call.

It’s understandable, of course. By 1 p.m. on the final Saturday before the first game week of the regular season, each NFL team is required to trim its roster from 90 to 53. That means 41 percent of players are instantly unemployed. They get a call, turn in their playbook and pray for a spot on the practice squad. Their NFL dreams fall victim to an iPhone.

On cut-down day, no news is good news. Silence means survival.

Austin Calitro knows this better than most.

Calitro – a 6-foot, 240-pound second-year linebacker – was waived on cut-down day by the San Francisco 49ers prior to the start of the 2017 season. That’s after he signed with the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent and was released 10 days later. He would also be cut by the Seahawks (after a 15-day stay) and Browns before resurfacing in Seattle in June.

Four franchises said no.

But the Seahawks reconsidered.

“I was just trying to figure it out last year,” Calitro said last week. “I knew I liked it here more than anywhere else. Then when I got an opportunity to come back here, I didn’t want to give it up.”

So instead, he gave even more. In four preseason games, the former Villanova standout produced 21 tackles, two tackles for loss and a sack as Bobby Wagner’s back up at middle linebacker. He consistently outperformed oft-injured veteran D.J. Alexander, a former Pro Bowl special teamer.

Still, cut-down day arrived without any assurance of a roster spot. So Calitro waited, worried and tried to distract himself with household tasks. The former communications major took a trip to the laundromat – “just trying to keep my mind off of it.” He waded in the water with his girlfriend on a beach on Lake Washington.

And, on the one panic-inducing day when you don’t want to get a call, he got a call.

But not from Seahawks general manager John Schneider.

“What’s up, Bobby?” Calitro said to Wagner, his mentor at middle linebacker.

“How you doing?”

“Well, I’m waiting. How are you doing?”

“Well, I’m just calling to say congrats.”

“So I kind of figured it out on my own,” Calitro said with a smile last week. “It was a nice way to find out, coming from him.”

For the first time in his career, Calitro cracked a 53-man roster.

And once that call ended, the other calls commenced.

“We were out of town,” said Sharon Calitro, Austin’s mother, who was driving back from a Villanova football game. “Our phones were just … I think my husband was on the phone for two and a half hours on the car ride home.

“Our family, his grandmother and grandfather, cousins, friends, everybody was just so excited for him. We were happy. We were really happy for him.”

The Calitros were happy for a notoriously hard worker – a (mediocre) Pop Warner quarterback and kicker, a twin and big brother, a high school linebacker and running back (and catcher on the baseball team). In his free time, Calitro is taking online classes, pursuing a Master’s degree from Villanova in public administration. Someday, he’d like to work with non-profit organizations or help bring better education to inner cities.

Someday. Not today.

Today, he’s taking names.

“I think we have a certain style that we like to have here and Austin epitomizes that – running and hitting and competition and just giving him a chance to show himself, to show who he is,” defensive coordinator Ken Norton said last week. “If you watched the practices or you watched the preseason games, if there was one person who was taking full (advantage) of his opportunity, it was Austin Calitro.”

That’s the same 24-year-old kid who wasn’t offered an FBS scholarship out of Danbury (CT) High School, who wasn’t invited to the scouting combine, who waited through seven rounds and three days of the NFL Draft but never got a call.

A kid like that has learned to appreciate every available opportunity.

“It’s very satisfying, because I’ve heard no so many times,” Calitro said. “To finally get an opportunity to show what I’ve got during the regular season is truly a blessing.”

Calitro was granted that opportunity against Denver last weekend, and again, he took advantage. In place of injured veteran K.J. Wright, he rotated with rookie Shaquem Griffin at weakside linebacker and finished with four tackles in 33 snaps.

And that’s despite only beginning to practice at that position the week before.

“Austin has done a really good job for us,” Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said in the postgame press conference. “He has been playing the other spot and we just switched him over when K.J. got banged up, but I think as we look forward that was a really positive move to get him in the game.”

Added Calitro in the locker room after his regular season debut: “I think that was the most fun part for me, that I’ll probably look back on one day and be proud of – just the fact that I was out there with guys like Earl (Thomas) and Bobby (Wagner) and (Jarran) Reed and we were all communicating and getting on the same page.”

That process will have to continue this week, as Wright – who is still recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery – is unlikely to play on Monday night against Chicago. Calitro will need to keep adjusting to a new position.

That shouldn’t be a problem. Adjustments are nothing new.

“I’m telling you, criss-crossing the country and flying from one place to another (last season), not being signed and then being signed and let go, you’ve got to have a strong determination,” Sharon Calitro said. “He just continued to work hard.”

And, when he was needed, Austin Calitro answered the call.

“It’s hard,” Calitro said of enduring cut-down day. “But at the same time there’s a very limited number of people that are even able to get this far, so I look at it like it’s a blessing and try to roll with the punches, because there’s hopefully going to be sunshine on the other side.

“Hopefully I broke through and found my little bit of sunshine.”

          Some Amazon drivers are going to extremes like peeing in bottles to make deliveries on time      Cache   Translate Page      
Neither rain nor snow nor the absence of a bathroom facility will apparently stop Amazon drivers from their appointed rounds. With apologies to our vamp on that old motto for the postal service, Business Insider is out today with the results of interviews it's done with almost three dozen Amazon delivery drivers, and the picture that's painted of their working conditions is -- well, pretty brutal. Then again, this is Amazon, where frugality is practically a religion that eliminates from the company's billionaire chief executive, so maybe we shouldn't be surprised that some of these drivers say they've resorted to extremes like peeing in bottles. Instead of, you know, pulling over and stopping for a quick bathroom break. They've peed in bottles, bags, even outside right on the road. Anything to keep to what sounds like a near-impossible schedule -- like dropping off as many as 300 packages during a nine-hour shift that's supposed to include a 30-minute lunch break and two 15-minute breaks to go to the bathroom. Try to work that math out for yourself. Many of these drivers report that it either can't be done, or can barely be done as long as you're pretty much flying through red lights and basically sticking to a near-inhuman pace. Inc. magazine looked at the math and figures you'd have to deliver one package every two minutes and 24 seconds in order to clear 200 items in eight hours (factoring in one hour for breaks).
"How many packages do you have left?" That's the response Zachariah Vargas told BI he got one day when he called an Amazon dispatch supervisor six hours into his shift delivering packages. A normal question from the supervisor, you'd think -- except Zachariah had just explained that he'd accidentally slammed the door of his truck on his hand. Blood started to pour, and both his arms started to shake. He thought he could see bone.

The supervisor told him to deliver the dozens of packages he had left before he returned to the station or went for medical help. There was no first-aid kit in his truck, so he ignored that command and headed back anyway.

"'Are you dying right now? Girls have come back with worse wounds than you,'" he told BI was the response from his supervisor.

There are plenty of other stories like that across Amazon's network, which is probably to be expected given that Amazon delivered more than 5 billion packages to Prime members around the world last year. Prime members pay $119 a year and get free two-day shipping on millions of items, as same-day delivery on others. Of course, there is a cost associated with meeting that demand. "In interviews over the course of eight months, drivers described a variety of alleged abuses, including lack of overtime pay, missing wages, intimidation, and favoritism," BI reports. "Drivers also described a physically demanding work environment in which, under strict time constraints, they felt pressured to drive at dangerously high speeds, blow stop signs, and skip meal and bathroom breaks. "In response to this story, Amazon said that some challenges exist within its wide network of delivery providers and that it's working to improve the system." One Chicago-area driver interviewed said everyone he knows speeds "like crazy." "That's the only way we were able to finish our routes on time. We were zooming through residential areas, all of us, all the time." He said at one point he almost hit a child playing in the street. Another driver, a former Army combat-arms specialist, told BI "it was nearly impossible to finish a delivery route within Amazon's nine-hour time frame. He said the delivery job was more physically and emotionally challenging than his time in the Army."

Each week some of the best improvisers in Birmingham take to the stage to deliver Fat Penguin Improvs own unique style of high energy, high concept comedy.

The performers will take a suggestion from the audience and then tell a true-life story directly based on the suggestion. The rest of the performers then create a series of comedy scenes inspired by the story. This show takes a very intimate look at the lives of our performers, then ruthlessly explores the comic premises from within those stories in a typically high-paced Fat Penguin style. The show is 100% improvised.

The Armando Diaz experience first appeared in 1995 at iO Chicago, inspiring similar shows to start up all over the world.

- Émile Eudes: El 12 de setembre de 1843 neix a Roncey (Baixa Normandia, França) el communard blanquista Émile François Désiré Eudes, conegut com Général Eudes. Després d'educar-se a Saint-Lô, va establir-se a París i va fer estudis de farmàcia, alhora que va militar en els grups blanquistes i es va consagrar ben aviat enterament a la militància. Regentà un temps una llibreria i va esdevenir gerent de La Libre Pensée, caracteritzat pel seu anticlericalisme radical. En aquesta època va participar en activitats maçòniques. Cap al final de l'Imperi, va ser responsable, amb Ernest Henri Granger, dels grups de combat de la riba esquerra del Sena a París. Ambdós, a començaments d'agost de 1870, van convèncer Blanqui per passar a l'acció. D'antuvi van planejar atacar el fort de Vincennes, però Blanqui va optar per fer-se primer amb la caserna dels bombers de La Villette i així aconseguir armes. L'acció, que va començar a les 15.30 hores del diumenge 14 d'agost de 1870 va ser un fracàs total. Detingut amb Gabriel Marie Brideau, ambdós van ser condemnat a mort el 29 d'agost per un consell de guerra. La capitulació de Sedan i la proclamació de la República el 4 de setembre de 1870 els va salvar la vida, ja que l'endemà van ser alliberats de la presó del Cherche-Midi pels manifestants. Aleshores va prendre el partit de la defensa de París a ultrança, assetjada per les tropes alemanyes. Va col·laborar en La Patrie en danger, treballà en l'organització del Comitè Central Republicà dels XX Districtes i va esdevenir cap del 138 Batalló de la Guàrdia Nacional, però la seva participació en la insurrecció del 31 d'octubre, contra el Govern de Defensa Nacional, va fer que fos destituït d'aquest comandament. El 18 de març de 1871 va dirigir, amb Gabriel Ranvier, els batallons de Belleville, que s'apoderaren de l'Ajuntament de París, i va estar a favor de marxar sobre Versalles, on es trobava l'Assemblea Nacional i el govern de Thiers. El 24 de març va ser nomenat delegat de la Guerra, amb Paul Antoine Brunel i Émile Victor Duval, per al Comitè Central i dos dies després va ser elegit per al Consell de la Comuna pel XI Districte (19.276 vots sobre 25.183 votants). El 29 de març de 1871 va ser nomenat mentre de la Comissió Executiva i membre de la Comissió Militar; va abandonar la primera el 3 d'abril, dia de la desastrosa l'ofensiva communard contra les tropes de Versalles. El 20 d'abril va esdevenir inspector general dels forts de la riba esquerra del Sena. El 5 de maig va comandar la Segona Brigada Activa de Reserva, el quarter general de la qual es trobava al Palau de la Legió d'Honor. El 9 de maig va ser elegit per al Comitè de Salvació Pública. Durant la Setmana Sagnant, Eudes va lluitar al costat d'Eugène Varlin a les barricades del carrer de Rennes i de la cruïlla de la Croix-Rouge. Va poder fugir de la repressió i va arribar a Suïssa i després a Londres, on s'instal·la el setembre de 1871. Durant el Tercer Consell de Guerra se li va imputar l'incendi i el pillatge del Palau de la Legió d'Honor i va ser condemnat a mor en rebel·lia el 2 d'agost de 1872. Va viure miserablement a Anglaterra fins a l'amnistia. Un cop a França de bell nou en 1880, va participar en la fundació del periòdic de Blanqui, Ni Dieu ni Maître. Després de la mort de Blanqui, va llançar L'Homme Libre, amb Edouard Vaillant. Émile Eudes va morir de sobte d'una ruptura d'aneurisma el 5 d'agost de 1888 durant un míting a la Sala Favié de Belleville (París, França) mentre feia un discurs excessivament violent en defensa dels terrissaires parisencs en vaga. El seu funeral va donar lloc a manifestacions que van ser durament reprimides per la policia a causa de les provocacions boulangistes. Es troba enterrat al cementiri parisenc de Père-Lachaise.

Tebaldo Vannucci

- Tebaldo Vannucci: El 12 de setembre de 1882 neix a Liorna (Toscana, Itàlia) l'anarquista Teobaldo Vannucci. Sos pares es deien Fortunato Vannucci i Paola Ceccarini. Es guanyava la vida fent d'obrer, envernissador i pintor. A començaments de segle formà part de l'anarquista Circolo di Studi Sociali (CSS, Cercle d'Estudis Socials) i de l'Associació Racionalista de Liorna, encarregant-se de la distribució dels periòdics Il Seme i Sorgiamo. El 29 de gener de 1911 va ser cridat a La Spezia (Ligúria, Itàlia) per a reparar el vaixell rus Averoff, però just arribar va ser sotmès a una vigilància especial per part de les autoritats i detingut arbitràriament en dues ocasions. Pel maig, un cop reparat el vaixell rus, retornà a Liorna, encara que l'agost de 1911 era de bell nou a La Spezia. Novament vigilat, les autoritats van fer constar que son germà Amedeo era membre de la «secta anarquista» i administrava els periòdics Giornale di Classe i Sorgiamo. En 1912 treballà a les drassanes Orlando de Liorna, estava subscrit al periòdic Germinal d'Ancona i feia propaganda anarquista. Mesos més tard es traslladà a Nàpols (Campània, Itàlia), on treballà a les drassanes Pattison. Quan esclatà la Gran Guerra, formà part del sector antimilitarista i «derrotista» del moviment llibertari i el maig de 1917, en un informe d'un confident, és definit com un dels anarquistes més actius de Nàpols. En aquesta època va estar constantment vigilat per la Prefectura napolitana. A començaments de 1921, després de la sobtada mort de sa companya Ines Rossi, esdevinguda el 27 de gener a Nàpols, retornà a Liorna amb sos fills Comunardo, Ferrerino i Ferrerina. En aquesta ciutat va ser constantment vigilat, estigué subscrit a Umanità Nova i a partir de 1922 participà activament en la lluita contra els escamots feixistes. Posteriorment es traslladà a Roma. Tebaldo Vannucci va morir el 19 de gener de 1932 a Roma (Itàlia).

Necrològica d'Asunción González Pardo apareguda en el periòdic tolosà Espoir del 23 de juny de 1974

- Asunción González Pardo: El 12 de setembre de 1889 neix en un poble de Lugo (Galícia) l'anarcosindicalista Asunción González Pardo, també coneguda com Asunción Salgado, pel llinatge de son company. En 1917 començà a militar en el moviment llibertari. Companya del militant anarquista Manuel Salgado Moreira, a qui havia conegut molt jove, emigrà a Madrid (Espanya), on regentà un petit forn i pastisseria, que compaginava amb l'ajuda dels companys perseguits o en fuita. Milità en la Regional del Centre de la Confederació Nacional del Treball (CNT). El març de 1939, amb el triomf franquista, mentre que son company pogué exiliar-se, ella restà a Madrid i pogué arribar a la seva localitat natal, però un comissari vingut de Madrid amb dos agents la va detenir. Traslladada a la capital de l'Estat, va ser interrogada a la seu de la Direcció General de Seguretat i internada a la Presó de Dones. Restà nou anys i mig tancada entre Madrid i Barcelona (Catalunya) sense mai no haver estat jutjada. En 1949 va ser posada en llibertat condicional cinc setmanes abans del seu judici, però va ser advertida per un infiltrat que havia ordre de detenir-la de bell nou i prengué un tren cap a Sant Sebastià (Guipuscoa, País Basc), on durant la nit els companys la passaren a l'altra banda del riu Bidasoa. Restà dos mesos a França abans d'obtenir la possibilitat d'emigrar cap el Regne Unit per a trobar-se amb son company i son fill. En l'exili milità en el nucli de la CNT de Londres. Esdevingué sorda i gairebé cega, patint una paràlisi provocada per una artritis no guarida a la presó. Asunción González Pardo va morir el 6 de març de 1974 a Londres (Anglaterra) i va ser incinerada el 13 de març.

En 1909 s'instal·là al continent i començà a estudiar a l'Escola Politècnica de Lisboa, per passar l'any següent a fer estudis a la Universitat de Coimbra. En aquests anys participà en les lluites estudiantils al costats de joves anarquistes. Gràcies a la lectura d'obres llibertàries (Piotr Kropotkin, Élisée Reclus, Jean Grave, António José de Ávila, Neno Vasco, Aurélio Quintanilha, Paul Elzbaker, etc.) es decantà per l'anarquisme. En 1914 abandonà la universitat i decidí emigrar a Amèrica, però dissuadit per Alexandre Berkman, en 1919 retornà a Lisboa. Políglota, a la capital portuguesa col·laborà com a traductor en la premsa obrera, sempre al costa de Neno Vasco, i especialment en el periòdic anarcosindicalista A Batalha. Com a membre del grup anarquista «O Semeador», en 1923 prengué part en la Conferència Anarquista que se celebrà a Alenquer. Des de 1926 formà part del Comitè Confederal de la Confederació General del Treball (CGT) de Portugal, del qual va ser nomenat secretari.

En 1932 publicà el fullet Da conquista do poder. Durant el període revolucionari espanyol de 1936 a 1939, criticà, com també Vivaldo Fagundes, la participació anarquista en els governs de la II República espanyola. En 1974, després de la caiguda de la dictadura, participà en la reconstrucció del moviment anarquista i fundà a Almada el periòdic Voz Anarquista. En 1974 publicà el llibre Ao povo português. Adriano Botelho va morir l'1 de maig de 1983 a Lisboa (Portugal). Sa companya fou Aurora Moscoso, filla d'una família d'anarquistes de São Paulo (São Paulo, Brasil), d'origen espanyola, i cunyada del pensador anarquista Neno Vasco. El seu arxiu personal s'integrà en el Centre d'Estudis Llibertaris de Lisboa que es troba dipositat a la Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal. En 1989 es publicà una antologia de textos sota el títol Memória e ideário.

- Herminia Brumana: El 12 de setembre de 1897 neix a Pigüé (Buenos Aires, Argentina) la mestra, escriptora, periodista, dramaturga i activista feminista i anarquista Herminia Catalina Brumana. Filla d'una família d'immigrants italians il·lustrats, sos pares es deien Juan Bautista Brumana i Delia Piatti. Realitzà els estudis secundaris a l'Escola Normal Nacional d'Olavarría (Buenos Aires, Argentina), on es titulà en 1916, retornant a Pigüé per a exercir de mestra primària a l'Escola Núm. 3, desenvolupant projectes de pedagoria integral (horta, galliner, taller de fusteria, etc.). Aquest mateix 1916 obtingué el primer premi del concurs literari de la Biblioteca Popular pel seu treball Influencias de las bibliotecas populares en la cultura de los pueblos y apoyo que éstos deben a dichas instituciones. En 1917 fundà Pigüé. Revista mensual literaria, social, de ideas y crítica i l'any següent publicà Palabritas, primer llibre seu orientat a promoure la lectura en l'alumnat. Entre 1920 i 1921 participà en el grup anarquista «Insurrexit», per al qual va escriure alguns articles. En 1921, durant un viatge a Buenos Aires, conegué el destacat militant socialista i escriptor Juan Antonio Solari, amb qui es casa a mitjans d'aquell any i amb qui s'instal·là a Buenos Aires, treballant primer a l'escola de Quilmes, després a Avellaneda, on exercí el càrrec de sotsdirectora, i finalment a la Capital Federal. Entre 1921 i 1930 va fer de mestra a diferents escoles del Gran Buenos Aires i de la Capital Federal, i a partir de 1932 exercí càrrecs directius. En 1922 tingué son únic fill, que prengué el mateix nom que son pare. En 1923 publicà el seu segon llibre, Cabezas de mujeres, obra marcadament feminista. Entre 1929 i 1939 publicà cinc llibres: Mosaico (1929), La grúa (1931), Tizas de colores (1932), Cartas a las mujeres argentinas (1936) i Nuestro hombre (1939), on palesà la seva lluita pel drets de les dones, l'amor lliure, la crítica al matrimoni inexorable, el dret al divorci, la justícia social, i tot relacionat amb les dificultats que els infants pobres tenen per a estudiar. Va escriure 11 obres teatrals –entre elles Miluch (1932), Cuando planté árboles (1927), La protagonista olvidada (1932)– de les quals tres s'estrenaren, i participà en nombrosos programes radiofònics per a Radio Cultura. Encara que col·laborà amb els socialistes, sempre es va declarar anarquista i es considerava deixeble de Rafael Barret, a qui citava contínuament. Durant la dècada dels vint fou columnista dels periòdics anarquistes L'Antorcha, Nervio i Nuestra Tribuna; exigí la llibertat de Simon Radowitzky i entre 1931 i 1942 participà activament en la campanya per l'alliberament dels anomenats «Presos de Bragado», tres joves anarquistes (Pascual Vuotto, Reclús De Diago i Santiago Mainini) que van ser torturats i condemnats en 1931 per un homicidi que les autoritats sabien ben bé que no havien comès, destacant per la seva oratòria en conferències i xerrades. El gener de 1932 signà, juntament amb altres destacats intel·lectuals argentins, un manifest en suport de la II República espanyola. En 1941 començà a treballar com a mestra de Pràctica d'Escriptori a l'Escola per a Adults Núm. 6 de Buenos Aires –en morir, aquesta escola rebé el nom de «Herminia Brumana». En 1943, arran del cop militar, va ser cessada dels seus càrrecs ja que era considerada «no addicta al règim» –son company va ser empresonat pel peronisme–, però, gràcies a un company, aconseguí un lloc de feina en la Societat Argentina d'Escriptors, de la qual arribà a ser membre de la seva comissió directiva i, amb Miguel Alfredo Olivera, en reorganitzà la biblioteca. Aquest mateix any de 1943 va ser invitada a fer una conferència a la New School for Social Research de Nova York (Nova York, EUA) i recorregué les Estats Units i Mèxic fent xerrades sobre l'activitat literària argentina –anteriorment havia viatjat dues vegades a Europa: España i França, en 1933; i França, Bèlgica i Suïssa, en 1938. En 1946 publicà Me llamo niebla. Cuentos i en 1953 A Buenos Aires le falta una calle. Durant sa vida col·laborà en diferents publicacions periòdiques, com ara Caras y Caretas, Estampa, El Hogar, Leoplán, Mundo Argentino, La Nación, La Novela Elegante, La Novela Semanal, La Nueva Provincia, Pueblo y Escuela, Reconstruir, El Suplemento, El Trabajo, Vida Femenina i La Voz, entre d'altres. Malalta de càncer, Herminia C. Brumana va morir el 9 de gener de 1954 a Buenos Aires (Argentina) i les seves restes van ser incinerades, sense cap cerimònia i en la més estricta intimitat. Deixà una important producció inèdita, entre ella La conquista del hombre. Poc després de morir l'escriptor anarquista Gustavo Cuadrado Hernández organitzà un concurs literari que portava el seu nom i es creà la Societat d'Amics d'Herminia Brumana (SAHB). A partir del gener de 1955 la SAHB edità la revista Amigos de Herminia Brumana i en 1958 en publicà les seves Obras completas; en 1964 sortí Ideario y presencia de Herminia Brumana, un recull de pensaments i de treballs sobre l'autora d'escriptors llatinoamericans. En 1974 es van publicar els seus contes sota el títol Esclava en el día de la libertad. Documentació de l'escriptora va ser donada per les seves netes al Centro de Documentación e Investigación de la Cultura de Izquierdas en Argentina (CeDInCI) de Buenos Aires. Diversos carrers, places, biblioteques i centres educatius argentins porten el seu nom.

Aldebrando Lusvardi

Aldebrando Lusvardi

- Aldebrando Lusvardi: El 12 de setembre de 1912 neix a Villa Ganaceto (Emília-Romanya) el paleta anarquista Aldebrando Lusvardi. Sos pares es deien Giovanni Lusvardi i Maddalena Bertoni. Sos germans Alfredo, Bruno, Filippo i Medardo també van ser militants llibertaris. En 1924 s'adherí al Grup Llibertari Juvenil de La Madonnina (Emília-Romanya, Itàlia), on ocupà el càrrec de caixer i s'encarregà de les subscripcions a favor de les víctimes polítiques. Actiu militant, va ser fitxat per la Prefectura de Mòdena (Emília-Romanya, Itàlia) com a «subversiu perillós» i va ser detingut en diverses ocasions per difondre fullets anarquistes. El novembre de 1926 va ser condemnat a un mes de reclusió per insultar l'autoritat pública i el desembre d'aquell any va ser advertit formalment. Després de la detenció dels militants anarquistes de Mòdena més actius i del desmantellament de les organitzacions anarquistes, s'hagué de prendre contacte amb alguns elements comunistes per continuar la lluita antifeixista, però aquests contactes resultaren fatals arran del descobriment d'algunes armes i, amb l'anarquista Albano Franchini, va ser denunciat pel Tribunal Especial per «intensa activitat comunista». Passà a la clandestinitat i en 1930 fugí a França, instal·lant-se d'antuvi a Amiens (Picardia, França) i després a París, on es reuní amb sos germans Filippo i Alfredo. En aquesta època estava inscrit en el registre de la policia de fronteres amb l'ordre de ser detingut. En 1931 la policia italiana el va inscriure en el llistat d'anarquistes expatriats amb la nota: «combat el règim amb accions violentes». En 1933 la seva companya Albina Franchi, amb qui tenia dos fills (Giovanni i Sergio), es reuní amb ell a París. El maig de 1937 una nota confidencial de l'ambaixada diu que havia partit amb son germà Filippo cap a Espanya per combatre el feixisme, però sembla una informació sense fonament. El novembre de 1940 sos germans Alfredo i Filippo van ser detinguts per la policia francesa per a ser lliurats als ocupants alemanys, però ell aconseguí fugir i arribar al centre de França. A finals de 1942 residia a París vigilat i posteriorment s'integrà en la Resistència. Aldebrando Lusvardi va morir el 8 d'abril de 1991 a Bagnolet (Illa de França, França).

Foto policíaca de Luigi Parenti

- Luigi Parenti: El 12 de setembre de 1942 mor a Cacinaia (Toscana, Itàlia) el propagandista anarquista i anarcosindicalista Luigi Parenti, també conegut com Louis Parenti. Havia nascut el 18 de febrer de 1887 a Calcinaia (Toscana, Itàlia). Durant els seus estudis formà part de la Lliga Democràtica Nacional (LDN), del pare Romolo Murri, considerat en Itàlia el precursor de la democràcia cristiana. Després començà a militar en el moviment sindical com a membre de la Societat de Socors Mutus de Pontetetto, a Lucca (Toscana, Itàlia), de la qual va ser exclòs per les seves idees radicals. Fou especialment actiu durant la vaga de tramvies de Luca. En 1910 emigrà als Estats Units i s'instal·là a San Francisco (Califòrnia, EUA), on esdevingué anarquista i s'afilià a l'any següent a l'Industrial Workers of the World (IWW, Treballadors Industrials del Món), arribant a ser un dels membres més destacats de la Secció Llatina d'aquest sindicat anarcosindicalista. En 1913 participà en una gira propagandística de conferències arreu Califòrnia. Mantingué estreta correspondència amb Carlo Tresca (Nova York) i amb Armando Borghi (Itàlia). La seva tasca anarcosindicalista es desenrotllà en diversos sectors, com ara els hotels, els restaurants, les foneries, les fàbriques i els ferrocarrils, i sempre intentà unir els treballadors al marge de races, llengües i cultures. En 1916 va ser detingut, amb Michele Centrone; jutjat, va ser condemnat a tres mesos de presó per haver organitzat una manifestació a favor de Carlo Tresca i d'altres militants wobblies empresonats durant la vaga de la Mesabi Iron Range de Minnesota. El 29 de setembre de 1916 va ser detingut amb altres vuit companys, entre elles Michele Centrone i Louis Tori, quan intentaven parlar en públic sobre la sentència condemnatòria en el cas de Warren Billings; jutjats, van ser condemnats a penes entre 10 dies i tres mesos de presó per «pertorbació de la pau». Després treballà com a miner a Pennsilvània i, més tard, s'establí a la zona de Paterson (Nova Jersey, EUA). El 5 de setembre de 1917 va ser condemnat per un tribunal federal de Chicago per violació de la Llei d'Espionatge pel delicte d'«activitats antimilitaristes i derrotistes», juntament amb altres 165 membres dels IWW –entre ells Joseph J. Ettor, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, Arturo Giovannitti, Bill Haywood, James Rowan, Vincent St. John, Carlos Tresca i Ben H. William–, a cinc anys de presó i a una multa de 30.000 dòlars. Durant el seu empresonament, entre setembre de 1917 i juny de 1919 a la penitenciaria de Leavenworth (Kansas, EUA), no se li va permetre comunicar-se amb sa companya Emma Bacci ni amb les seves tres filles, la petita de les quals va néixer durant el captiveri. El juny de 1919 va ser alliberat sota fiança i es posà a organitzar un sindicat independent de pescadors a San Francisco i com a corresponsal del periòdic liberal La Voce del Popolo, fet pel qual va ser criticat per alguns companys anarquistes. El maig de 1921 l'apel·lació del seu procés va ser rebutjada i tornà a la presó. Finalment se li va commutar la pena a condició que marxés dels EUA. L'agost de 1922 retornà a Itàlia amb sa família i s'instal·là a la zona de Lucca, on s'afilià a l'anarcosindicalista Unió Sindical Italiana (USI). Entre el 28 i el 29 de juny de 1925 fou delegat de Viareggio en el Congrés de la USI clandestí. Pressionat per les autoritats feixistes, en 1928 es reuní a Roma amb Edmondo Rossoni, un dels caps del sindicalisme del règim el qual havia conegut a Amèrica, i va començar a treballar en els sindicats feixistes i com a corresponsal del periòdic feixista de Liorna Il Telegrafo. En 1929 es autoritats italianes van informar que mostrava obediència a les consignes del règim feixista, però a principis de 1930 la policia descobrí que seguia rebent clandestinament exemplars del periòdic anarquista de Carlo Tresta Il Martello. El febrer de 1930 va ser detingut, jutjat i condemnat, però la sentència li fou commutada amb la promesa de bona conducta. Després abandonà tota activitat política i sindical i en 1932 va ser finalment esborrat per les autoritats feixistes de les llistes de «subversius perillosos». Luigi Parenti va morir el 12 de setembre de 1942 a Cacinaia (Toscana, Itàlia) i fou enterrat al cementiri municipal d'aquesta localitat. La seva mort va ser anunciada en la publicació anarquista de Paterson L'Adunata dei Refrattari.

Nino Samaja (Bolonya, 1970)

Nino Samaja (Bolonya, 1970)

- Nino Samaja: El 12 de setembre de 1959 mor a Bolonya (Emília-Romanya, Itàlia) el metge i propagandista anarquista, i després socialista, Nino Samaja, que va fer servir el pseudònim Kristen Larsen. Havia nascut el 30 de juliol de 1876 a Lugo (Emília-Romanya, Itàlia) en una família jueva. Sos pares es deien Giacomo Samaja i Cesira Forti. Entre finals del segle XIX i principis del XX fou un dels militants més destacats del moviment anarquista d'Emília-Romanya. En 1891 va ser empresonat per haver organitzat una manifestació per al Primer de Maig. El 9 de juny de 1892 la policia de Forlì (Emília-Romanya, Itàlia), ciutat on va estudiar, el va definir com a «un noi influenciat per les idees anarquistes» i que en «defensa les més radicals». En 1894, quan estudiava el primer any de la carrera de medicina, va ser jutjat i condemnat a tres anys d'arrest domiciliari i per evitar la deportació fugí a Trieste (Friül), però va ser detingut per la policia austríaca, lliurat a la italiana i deportat a les illes Tremiti, on va romandre un any, fins el 14 de març de 1896. Entre 1897 i 1898 fou membre de la Federació Anarquista de Romanya (FAR). El 9 de febrer de 1897 va ser novament detingut i enviat sota arrest domiciliari a l'illa de Ventotene, encara que només va estar uns mesos gràcies a la remissió de la pena. En aquests anys de màxima activitat política, va estar en estret contacte amb Errico Malatesta, Amilcare Cipriani i amb el grup anarquista de Forlì, al voltant de Cesare Magri. A començaments de 1898 es trobava a Ancona (Marques, Itàlia) i, perseguit, hagué de canviar d'identitat i passar a la clandestinitat. El març de 1898 signà, amb Vivaldo Lacchini i Felipe Vezzani, en nom del Circolo di Studi Sociali (CSS, Cercle d'Estudis Socials) de Bolonya, el manifest «Al popolo italiano» (Al poble italià), en favor dels anarquistes processats a Ancona, que aparegué com a suplement en L'Agitazione. Després de la detenció dels redactors del periòdic L'Agitazione, es va fer càrrec, amb Luigi Fabbri, Felice Vezzani i altres joves companys, de l'edició i difusió clandestina de la publicació, on col·laborà sota el pseudònim Kristen Larsen. El maig de 1898 llançà l'últim número d'aquesta sèrie clandestina del periòdic i, sempre buscat per la policia, s'exilià, després d'una curta estada clandestina a Florència (Toscana), a França. A París visqué fent traduccions i treballant en diverses feinetes, però sense abandonar el seu compromís polític. En 1898 publicà el fullet Les émeutes de la faim en Italie i traduí el llibre de Guglielmo Ferrero Le militarisme et la société moderne. Fou un dels organitzadors del Congrés Obrer Revolucionari Internacional, que s'havia de celebrar entre el 19 i el 22 de setembre de 1899 a París, però que va ser prohibit per les autoritats franceses i ell detingut amb altres companys. En 1899 col·laborà en Le Temps Nouveaux. Com a delegat de Suïssa per al Congrés Antiparlamentari Internacional de París, en 1900 va ser expulsat de França i marxà cap a Ginebra (Ginebra, Suïssa). En aquesta ciutat promogué, amb Carlo Frigerio, Luigi Bertoni i Émile François Held, la publicació de l'Almanacco socialista anarchico per l'anno 1900 i per aquest fet el gener de 1900 va estar empresonat uns dies. L'1 de juliol de 1900 fundà i redactà, amb altres companys (Luigi Bertoni, Vivaldo Lacchini, etc.), el periòdic bilingüe Il Risveglio Socialista Anarchico / Le Réveil Socialista Anarchiste, que esdevingué un de les publicacions anarquistes més importants d'Europa. El juliol de 1900 es llicencià en medicina a la Universitat de Ginebra, doctorant-se dos tres anys després. En 1901 va ser detingut a instàncies de l'ambaixada italiana per les seves activitats polítiques i restà empresonat alguns mesos. En 1902 es casà amb la romanesa Eugenia Giulescu i aquest mateix any publicà La législation ouvrière, résponse a M. Jaurès, publicat en italià per l'editorial d'Il Pensiero en 1906. Ateu declarat, en diferents ocasions va fer conferències, amb Charles Fulpius i Luigi Bertoni, sobre qüestions referents a la religió o també en defensa de l'estudiant de química Mario Lorenzo Basadonna, expulsat del cantó de Ginebra en 1902. En 1904 retornà a Itàlia i s'establí a Bolonya (Emília-Romanya, Itàlia) i exercí la seva professió mèdica sense abandonar les seves tasques polítiques. Durant molt de temps formà part del grup anarquista encapçalat per Luigi Fabbri, que s'havia traslladat a Bolonya, i es relacionà amb els redactors de L'Agitazione, tot i que el periòdic es distribuïa a Ancona i Roma. Fou partidari d'un moviment anarquista orgànicament federalista, socialista i no individualista. Durant la Gran Guerra s'allunyà del moviment anarquista i s'acostà al socialista, però sense afiliar-se al Partit Socialista Italià (PSI). Va ser nomenat metge numerari per oposició a l'Hospital Major de Bolonya, però aquest càrrec va ser revocat en 1922 pel comissari de policia per considerar-lo «opositor al feixisme». En aquesta època, el prefecte dissolgué l'Institut Bolonyès de Protecció i Assistència per a les Assegurances Socials que havia promogut des del 1915 entre els metges i advocats. Com que no tenia el carnet del Partit Nacional Feixista (PNF), no pogué fer oposicions a càrrecs públics i visqué exercitant la seva professió de manera privada. El novembre de 1926 va ser detingut, arran de l'atemptat contra Benito Mussolini, i empresonat durant una curta estada. En 1933, en no prestar el jurament al règim feixista, va ser privat del seu càrrec de docent universitari en patologia especial mèdica demostrativa. El gener de 1940, arran de la promulgació de les lleis racials, va ser exclòs de la pràctica mèdica per la seva condició de jueu. Durant la lluita per l'alliberament es va afiliar al PSI. El 12 d'octubre de 1943 va ser detingut, amb Giusepe Bentivogli, a Molinella (Emília-Romanya, Itàlia) i alliberat el 3 de desembre –evità la deportació com a jueu a un camp d'extermini alemany per estar casat amb una ària i per la seva edat. Després de la II Guerra Mundial, va ser readmès com metge i restituït per a la docència. En 1946, quan retornà a Bolonya després d'anys d'exili als Estats Units, Armando Borghi rebutjà trobar-se amb ell, decebut personalment i políticament pel fet d'haver abandonat el pensament anarquista i haver-se passat a les files del Partit Socialista Italià d'Unitat Proletària (PSIUP). El març de 1946 i el maig de 1951 va ser elegit membre de l'Ajuntament de Bolonya. Durant una dècada assessorà sanitàriament el consistori bolonyès i gràcies a ell la ciutat aconseguí recuperar un alt nivell higiènic i sanitari, nivell que s'havia perdut durant la guerra. El març de 1947 va ser elegit tinent d'alcalde i mantingué el càrrec fins el maig de 1956. En 1953, amb els seus companys maximalistes de Partit, commemorà la mort d'Iosif Stalin. El juliol de 1954 reemplaçà a Lugo la placa commemorativa, amb textos del poeta Giosuè Carducci, en record de l'internacionalista Francesco Piccinini, mort en un enfrontament polític el 2 de maig de 1872. En 1956, per motius d'edat, el PSI no el presentà com a candidat, fet que li va causar una gran desil·lusió. Es retirà de la vida pública i reprengué els seus estudis i assaigs sobre el Risorgimento, el moviment obrer i el judaisme italià. Trobem articles seus en infinitat de publicacions periòdiques, com ara L'Archiginnasio, Bolletino delle Scienze Mediche, L'Humanité Nouvelle, Gazzetta degli ospedali e delle cliniche, Progress Medical, Rassegna Mensile d'Israele, Revue Medicale de la Suisse Romande, Riviste di Psichiatria, etc. És autor de Le siège des convulsions épileptiformes toniques et cloniques (1903, premi de la Facultat de Medicina de Ginebra), Sull'ematuria rurale. Rivista critica (1915), I tumori dell'esofago (1918), Il morbo di Recklinghausen (1919), Johannes Ulricus Bilguer.

Nino Samaja va morir el 12 de setembre de 1959 a Bolonya (Emília-Romanya, Itàlia). Armando Borghi en publicà una necrològica en Umanità Nova (20 de setembre de 1959). En morir, la seva filla Mimì Faccioli Samaja, donà els seus llibres, assaigs i opuscles de caràcter històric, econòmic, social i polític a la Biblioteca Municipal «Fabrizio Trisi» de Lugo.

RAPTORS D: Its just not good at all right now and its a bad sign when Dwane Casey has to continually harp on it. Players are trying to just win on talent alone and that will get you beat on a lot of nights. A potentially dangerous character flaw, this team has a switch mentality, which we saw creeping in last March when they seem to think they can cruise their way through certain parts of games and pick it up when they feel like it, instead of having winning habits. Theyve given up over 101 PPG on 49 FG% and 44 3P%. If this team wants to be good to very good, it better realize that you have to respect your opponent and the game and stop trying to take shortcuts to success. It dont come easy. You got earn it and that means a much higher price has to be paid on D. Its nothing to do with schemes or Xs and Os. Do you want to lay it on the line all the time or not? Yes, I know they had free throw issues against the Heat, but weve all seen the defence in the first three games. Its not going to cut it and its time to decide how committed they really want to be. The good news is, this is all very correctable, but winning is really hard to do and you cant ever lose sight of that. Enough said. 2. ELFRID PAYTON (Magic): I love his game and potential. Hes long and athletic with terrific defensive range. Payton changes speeds and can score and create for others in the lane. Hes got good size and, as he fills out and figures it out, will be a good one. I can see why scouts were intrigued by him. Hes won me over. 3. SHABAZZ NAPIER (Heat): Hes going to be a nice back-up point guard for his squad. Napier is more of a pure lead guard than Norris Cole and Mario Chalmers. He makes the smart play and makes others better. Hes a winner and plays the game right and really hard. Napier was a good late first-round pick. 4. NBA REPLAY CENTRE: I really like the concept and it will help officials get it right more and more and thats a good thing. But my one observation is that, during a review, both teams are going to get an unofficial timeout and its going to make games longer. Maybe the NBA can consider a way to charge teams with a timeout in these instances or just reduce the number of timeouts, altogether. If not, were looking at longer games and thats not good for anyone. 5. JAMES JOHNSON (Raptors): Hes been steady so far for the Raps by playing under control on the offensive end, while being an energetic force on defence. If he keeps this up, hes going to start taking some minutes from teammates. He makes plays with many of them being impactful ones. Thats a good thing and will earn him more run.

Thornton scored his second goal of the game with 1:30 remaining in overtime to lead the San Jose Sharks to their sixth straight win, 3-2 over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night. Marleau also scored as the two longtime Sharks shined one day after signing three-year deals that will keep them in San Jose through the 2016-17 season. "For me and Patty both to score, its a great night for us," Thornton said. Antti Niemi made 20 saves and Joe Pavelski and Matt Irwin had two assists apiece as the Sharks overcame a 2-0 deficit to get their third six-game winning streak of the season. "Theyre our guys, and we need them when were down," Irwin said. "Jumbo got us to within one and Patty tied it up and obviously Jumbo won it in overtime. Theyre our guys. Its just kind of ironic what happened." Matt Cooke and Keith Ballard scored for the Wild, who built an early lead on the opener of a four-game road trip but still lost for the ninth time in their past 10 trips to San Jose. Darcy Kuemper made 29 saves as Minnesota lost for just the fourth time in 12 games this month. "We got a point against a good team in a tough building to play," Ballard said. "For the most part we played a fairly solid game. We werent the best at times. But we hung in there and even after they got those two quick goals, I thought we responded pretty well. We just couldnt find the time to get the third one tonight." Thornton and Pavelski combined on the game-winning play by causing a turnover at the blue line. Pavelski then fed Thornton, who beat Kuemper with a wrist shot from the top of the circle to end it with his ninth career overtime goal and first since Nov. 26, 2008, against Chicago. Pavelski assisted on both of Thorntons goals in a bit of a role reversal after Thornton helped set up many of his 19 goals in the previous 21 games. "Ive been teelling Pav, Youve been scoring too much. Wholesale Timberwolves Jerseys. Start passing the puck. And he finally listened," Thornton said. "I dont too often, but Pav just made two good plays and luckily I put them in." The Wild struck first on a nifty play by Cooke midway through the first period. Cooke deflected Thorntons cross-ice pass to Brad Stuart in the neutral zone. Cooke then beat Stuart to the loose puck and skated in on Niemi before beating him with a forehand for his eighth goal. They added onto the lead early in the second when Mikael Granlund fed Ballard for a one-timer that beat Niemi. It was Ballards first goal since Oct. 6, 2011, for Vancouver against Pittsburgh, ending a drought of 114 games without a goal. But that was all the Wild would get as they managed just 12 shots in the final 39-plus minutes. They spent much of the game on the defensive as they won just 18 of 59 faceoffs. "We lost the extra point because of the face-off circle tonight," coach Mike Yeo said. "We spent the entire night chasing and its inevitable that they will put you on your heels and give them some momentum. We never started with the puck. That was the big story." Minnesota dominated the opening half of the second period, limiting San Jose to one shot in the first 11-plus minutes before Thornton and Marleau delivered a day after getting their new contracts. Thornton struck first when Pavelski fed him for a one-timer that he knocked past Kuemper on a knuckler. Just 49 seconds later, Marleau scored his 22nd of the season when Tommy Wingels fanned on the original shot but still managed to get the puck to Marleau, who deflected it past Kuemper to tie the game. NOTES: Thornton has 40 career multigoal games. ... Minnesota F Jason Pominville got his 500th career point with an assist on Ballards goal. ... San Jose juggled its top two lines the second half of the game with Matt Nieto playing with Thornton and Pavelski and Brent Burns moving to a wing with Marleau and Wingels.

          PITTSBURGH -- The steady stream of bold-faced names heading to injured reserve shows      Cache   Translate Page      
PITTSBURGH -- The steady stream of bold-faced names heading to injured reserve shows no signs of abating for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Authentic Raptors Jerseys . Thankfully for the Penguins, neither is Sidney Crosby. Crosbys 19th goal of the season broke a tie with just over 6 minutes remaining and Pittsburgh edged the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-1 on Monday night for their fourth straight victory. Chris Conner and Brandon Sutter also scored for the Penguins, who were playing without a number of regulars, including forward Evgeni Malkin. "We keep finding ways," Crosby said. "A lot has to do with the way the (new guys) are playing." Pittsburgh took the ice with a handful of players who have spent the majority of the season at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League and only one defenceman -- Matt Niskanen -- with more than one year of NHL experience. It hardly mattered on a night the Penguins kept the speedy Maple Leafs in check. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 25 shots for Pittsburgh to improve to 27-3 in his past 30 home starts. Pittsburgh has won four straight and nine of 10. "Its a pretty unique situation," Niskanen said. "One rookie and five young guys playing. ... These guys have been coming up and playing with confidence and doing a good job. Thats exciting for the organization." Morgan Rielly scored the first goal of his career for the Maple Leafs. Jonathan Bernier made 28 saves, but couldnt stop Toronto from losing for the fourth time in its past five games. "We just werent sharp," Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said. The Penguins have a firm grip on the top of the Metropolitan Division despite a series of injuries to high-profile players. Kris Letang joined fellow defenceman Brooks Orpik (concussion), Paul Martin (broken leg) and Rob Scuderi (broken ankle) on the IR Monday with an upper-body injury of his own, forcing coach Dan Bylsma to get creative with his pairings. Rookie Philip Samuelsson, whose father Ulf won a pair of Stanley Cups with the Penguins in the early 1990s, made his NHL debut against the Maple Leafs. The younger Samuelsson received a quick lesson from his teammates on the level of expectation from Brian Dumoulin, playing in just the second game of his career. Dumoulin helped give the Penguins a quick 1-0 lead, collecting the puck near the point then firing it on net, allowing Conner to jab it by Bernier for his third goal of the season 39 seconds into the game. The tally seemed to embolden Pittsburgh, which controlled play for long stretches in the first period, keeping Bernier busy while the defence did a fine job of neutralizing Torontos speedy counterattack. The Maple Leafs tied it 6:03 into the second as Rielly, the fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft, skated through the Pittsburgh zone and beat Fleury over the goaltenders right shoulder for the highly regarded defencemans first career goal. The power-play score ended the Penguins streak of 18 consecutive penalty kills, though the score had less to do with any kind of breakdown and more to do with Riellys wicked wrist shot. Toronto kept the pressure on well into the third period, but Pittsburgh regained control after killing off an illegal check to the head penalty on Robert Bortuzzo, who levelled Maple Leaf forward Jerry DAmigo during a collision near centre ice. The 6-foot-4 defenceman, who has struggled to crack the lineup, shook off the penalty and even picked up his first point of the season on Crosbys winner. The Maple Leafs won the draw deep in their zone but Bortuzzo knocked down the clearing attempt then fed the puck up the wall to Pascal Dupuis, who slipped a quick pass to Crosby between the circles. "There was a lot of room there," Crosby said. "(Dupuis) made a great pass on my tape and I found the back of the net. Sutters short-handed empty-net goal with 3 seconds left sealed it and the Penguins remained hot while the Maple Leafs couldnt back up a promising 7-3 romp over defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago on Saturday night. "We were a little inconsistent, but we did do some good things," Torontos Dion Phaneuf said. "Weve got to capitalize on the power play and do some things better." NOTES: Toronto finished 1 of 5 on the power play. ... The Penguins are 13-1 when leading after the first period. ... Pittsburgh has won eight straight games at Consol Energy Center. ... The Maple Leafs begin a three-game homestand on Tuesday against Florida. ... Pittsburgh forward Jason Megna left with a lower body injury and did not return. He is not expected to play Wednesday when the Penguins face the Rangers in New York. Jakob Poeltl Jersey . The Mavericks avoided a season sweep by the Nuggets, who ran away with a win in Denver two weeks ago to hand Dallas its longest losing streak at three games. Dallas (42-28) got a boost in the playoff race when Miami rallied from seven down in the last 3 1/2 minutes to beat Memphis 91-86 Friday night. Serge Ibaka Jersey . Those who impressed in each of the three events were asked to attend the main CFL Combine which begins Friday in Toronto. http://www.cheapraptorsjerseyschina.com/...ry-jersey/ . -- Green Bay wide receiver Greg Jennings will be on the sideline as the Packers make their push for a perfect regular season.NEW YORK -- Aaron Hill was ready to wait all night to get this game in. Hill had a two-run homer wiped out by a rain storm that postponed the Arizona Diamondbacks and New York Mets in the fourth inning on Friday night after a delay of 2 hours, 11 minutes. "To get a win ... yeah," Hill said. "We need a few of those." The game will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader on Sunday. The first game will start at 1:10 p.m. Manager Kirk Gibson said the Diamondbacks, who are in last place in the NL West at 18-31, will likely call up a pitcher for the makeup start Sunday. The Mets will go with Daisuke Matsuzaka in the second game of the traditional twinbill. Rafael Montero will make his regularly scheduled start in the opener against Bronson Arroyo. Matsuzaka has been pitching out of the bullpen this season but the converted starter doesnt see going deep into the game as a problem. "I pitched yesterday but just one inning, did not throw too many pitches," Matsuzaka said through a translator. "I do not think 100 pitches should be a problem" The Diamondbacks are flying back to Arizona after the game Sunday. They host the San Diego Padres on Monday night but the doubleheader was the only option for the teams that do not meet again this season. They have no common days off the rest of the way. "Id rather stay," and wait it out, Gibson said, "but I can see it was raining." Last seasons series between the teams at Citi Field was also plagued by rain. "Good old New York," Hill said. Hill gave Arizona the lead in the second inning with a homer off Bartolo Colon that just cleared the fence in left field. Rookie Chase Anderson allowed one hit and a walk in his third big league start for the Diamondbacks. Dark clouds rolled in during the bottom of the third inning and the public address announcer made a request for fans sitting in exposed areas to move to protected areas. After Colon pitched a perfect fourth, thhe grounds crew brought out the tarp and rain began to fall shortly after. C.J. Miles Jersey. The Mets swept the Diamondbacks in a three-game series in Arizona April 14-16, but the teams are in very different places now. The Mets are 6-14 in May while the D-backs are 9-9 even though they were just dropped three straight at St. Louis. Hill connected on a two-seam fastball from Colon after Miguel Montero led off with a nubber up the third base line for a hit. Mets manager Terry Collins before the game talked about how Colon, who turns 41 Saturday, needs to use his off-speed pitches more to be effective. He started out Hill with a slider then threw him four straight two-seamers. Colon has had an up and down start to his first year in New York. He gave up two runs in eight innings in his previous start, a win over Washington, but yielded seven runs in 5 2-3 innings against the Yankees five days earlier. He entered 3-5 with a 5.34 ERA. Anderson gave up a two-out single to David Wright in the first and walked former Diamondbacks outfielder Chris Young leading off the second. Wilmer Flores grounded into a 5-4-3 double play to end the inning and Anderson was perfect in the third. "I felt like I was starting to roll after that third inning," Anderson said. "If we went to the fourth, fifth, I felt pretty good." NOTES: Mets C Travis dArnaud (concussion) took BP on the field. His next step before getting MLB doctors approval is catching a bullpen session. When he is finally cleared to play in games, Collins thinks dArnaud will need 8-10 rehab at-bats. ... Diamondbacks RHP J.J. Putz (forearm strain) has been playing long toss and is nearing a bullpen session, Gibson says there is no timetable yet for his return. ... Gibson was watching on a TV in his office his son Cam play in the Big Ten baseball tournament. Cam had four hits in a win over Illinois. ... Up Next: Arizonas Josh Collmenter (2-2) is scheduled to face New Yorks Zack Wheeler (1-4) Saturday.

          LOS ANGELES -- Steve Mason posted his second shutout in three games with 35 saves and      Cache   Translate Page      
LOS ANGELES -- Steve Mason posted his second shutout in three games with 35 saves and Wayne Simmonds scored his 100th NHL goal, leading the Philadelphia Flyers to a 2-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. Blaine Gabbert Jersey . It was the 22nd career shutout and third this season for Mason, who stopped 33 shots in a 5-0 win against Detroit last Tuesday after getting pulled by coach Craig Berube in two of his previous three starts. Mason got a break with less than 3 1/2 minutes left, when Justin Williams tried a wraparound and hit the left post. Claude Giroux added his 17th goal on a power play with 1:58 left, converting a cross-ice pass at the left of the crease from Scott Hartnell while Matt Greene was serving an interference penalty. The Flyers have scored a power-play goal in six straight games. The Kings have scored fewer than three goals in 16 of 20 games since their 25-8-4 start, and are 5-13-2 during that stretch with five shutout losses. They have only three goals in their past six games combined, all of them by Anze Kopitar. The Flyers had managed only five shots on net before Simmonds got his 18th goal at 7:48 of the first period. Jonathan Quick, who faced only 13 shots, overplayed Vincent Lecavalier at the right of the crease along with Kings defenceman Jake Muzzin following a turnover by the Kings in their zone, and Simmonds slammed the puck into a wide-open net. The Kings Robyn Regehr played in his 1,000th NHL regular-season game, becoming the 98th defenceman in NHL history to reach that plateau, and the club marked the occasion with a pregame ceremony. Regehrs first game was Oct. 28, 1999, with the Calgary Flames at Ottawa. Among those taking part in Saturdays ceremony were former Calgary teammate Craig Conroy and Regehrs grandmother, who wore a Flames jersey with his old No. 28. It was the first meeting between the Kings and Flyers since Oct. 15, 2011, when Los Angeles won 3-2. Saturday also was a reunion for Kings centre Jeff Carter, whom the Flyers traded to Columbus on June 23, 2011 -- the same day they dealt Richards to Los Angeles. Eight months later, the Kings acquired Richards by sending Jack Johnson to the Blue Jackets. Carter and Richards led Los Angeles to its first Stanley Cup title in 2012, two years after helping the Flyers get to the finals. NOTES: Richards has one goal in his past 32 games, and that one came on the power play. Carter has no goals in his past six games, following a four-game goal streak. ... Kings C Colin Fraser is one of seven forwards in the league to have played 30 or more games this season without scoring a goal -- and average at least nine minutes of ice time. ... The Kings are 19-3-0 when scoring more than two goals. ... Among the numerous Kings-Flyers connections is fan favourite Ian Laperriere, who played eight-plus seasons with Los Angeles and is now an assistant coach with Philadelphia. Dion Lewis Jersey . As TSN reported Thursday, the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport is under intense pressure from the federal government to focus drug testing on athletes who compete in international events representing Canada. Since funding for the tests has been frozen and the cost of testing can eclipse $1,000 per test, university athletes in a number of sports are being tested less often. Malcolm Butler Titans Jersey . The English Football Association had charged the German right back with violent conduct after retrospectively reviewing video evidence of an incident that was missed by match officials at Craven Cottage on Saturday. http://www.titansstoreonline.com/Black-5...ns-Jersey/ . Murray, the defending champion and No. 3 seed, claimed his first match win at Queens in 2005 and went on to win the Wimbledon warmup three times. But he failed to take advantage of eight set points after leading the first-set tiebreaker 6-2, and Stepanek survived to convert with his second set point. The Bruins and Stars hooked up for a blockbuster summer trade, a seven-player deal, headlined by a third-year scoring forward who was the second overall pick in the 2010 Draft. Numbers Game breaks down the deal sending Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley to Dallas for a package of players including Loui Eriksson and three prospects. The Stars Get: C/RW Tyler Seguin, C/RW Rich Peverley and D Ryan Button. Seguin, 21, was maligned for his 2013 playoff performance, when he scored one goal in 22 games, yet has 45 goals and 99 points over the last two seasons. His 36 even-strength goals over the last two years is tied for 14th. Despite that production, at that age, the Bruins were definitely not satisfied with Seguin and once his name had appeared in trade rumours, Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli told the Boston Globe that he hoped it would serve as a wake-up call, that Seguin would, "Become more of a professional." Chiarelli continued, "And you know what? I can say that about a lot of 21-year-olds. I know he got criticized for playing on the periphery and all that stuff. He did. Hes got to commit to being a professional and focusing on the game." When Seguin is focused on the game, hes a dynamic offensive talent, with the speed and shot to be among the most dangerous offensive players in the league. Like many of the Bruins top players, Seguin dominated in terms of puck possession over the last two seasons. Moving to Dallas, Seguin figures to pair with Jamie Benn on the Stars top line. Seguin has played right wing for the vast majority of his time in Boston, so an opportunity to play in the middle will be different. He played centre in junior, but hasnt yet had that responsibility in the NHL. Leading right wing candidates could be first-round pick Valeri Nichushkin, veterans Ray Whitney or Erik Cole or perhaps another addition to the Stars roster this summer. Seguin also figures to see a boost in ice time. He played just under 17 minutes per game over the past two seasons in Boston, but could easily see that push closer to 20 minutes per game with the Stars. Seguins six-year, $34-million contract extension kicks in this season, a $5.75-million cap hit per season. If hes a number one centre, scoring 70-plus points per season, thats a very reasonable return on investment. If he becomes better than a point-per-game guy, then thats a big win for Big D. Peverley turns 31 next week and is coming off a poor season in which he, and Bostons third line in general, struggled. Since being picked up on waivers by Atlanta, from Nashville, in 2008-2009, Peverley has 191 points in 307 games (a pace of 51 points per 82 games), but managed just 18 points in 47 games last season thanks, in part, to a career-low shooting percentage of 6.3% (his 5v5 on-ice shooting percentage was an abysmal, and unlucky, 4.63%). Where Peverley remains excellent, is in the faceoff circle, as hes won at least 55.0% of his draws in each of the last four seasons, including 58.4% last season, which ranked ninth among players with at least 200 face-offs in 2013. With the Stars, Peverley will fit into a second-line centre role, where he will be expected to contribute more offensively. The opportunity will certainly be there for Peverley to bounce back. Part of the incentive for Boston to move Peverley is that his contract still has two years, at a cap hit of $3.25-million per season, remaining. If he was producing, that would be one thing, but for a Bruins team without huge cap room, it made sense to include Peverleys contract in order to gain more financial flexibility heading into free agency. Ryan Button is only 22, but has spent two pro seasons splitting time between the AHL and ECHL, so his inclusion in the deal is more about keeping room on the Bruins reserve list than anything else. Perhaps Button gets some regular work in the AHL with Texas but, barring a sudden turnaround in his new locale, hes not going to be a factor when evaluating this trade. Dallas took a swing for the fences, going after a young player who has already shown that he can score in the NHL. If Seguin pans out as a first line scoring centre -- and he should -- then it will be hard to argue that they didnt get what they wanted out of the deal. The Bruins Get: LW/RW Loui Eriksson, RW Reilly Smith, D Joe Morrow and RW Matt Fraser. Eriksson, who turns 28 in a couple weeks, haas been a strong two-way player and regarded as underrated for so long that hes probably closer to properly rated now. Bennie Logan Titans Jersey. Hes able to play both wings, in all situations, and has logged just under 20 minutes per game for the Stars over the last five seasons, a time during which hes scored 130 goals, the same as Alex Burrows, two more than Patrick Kane and two fewer than Martin St. Louis. With vacancies abound on right wing in Boston (in addition to Seguin and Peverley departing, Jaromir Jagr and Nathan Horton are free agents), Eriksson is likely to move into a spot alongside Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand, one of the leagues most formidable two-way lines. Erikssons contract runs for three more seasons and while the salary is a little higher ($4.6-million this year, $4.5-million in the last two years), the cap hit is an economical $4.25-million. In addition to being a quality player, Eriksson provides value relative to the salary cap. A 22-year-old winger who scored 58 goals in 77 games in his last two collegiate seasons at Miami, Reilly Smith had a solid start to his pro career, scoring 35 points in 45 AHL games, before adding nine points in 37 games, along with strong possession stats, at the NHL level. Ideally, for the Bruins, Smith would be able to step in and fill a scoring role next season, but that could be asking too much from an unproven young player. Smith is still on an entry-level deal that will pay him $900,000 in the NHL. Acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Brenden Morrow trade last season, 20-year-old Joe Morrow had a bit of a rocky first pro season. The 23rd overall pick in 2011, Morrow is an offensive defenceman who needs time to round out the rest of his game if hes going to make the jump. He offers upside as a puck-moving, point-producing defenceman, but isnt ready to provide immediate help to a Stanley Cup contender. A winger with good size who scored 70 goals in 135 AHL games over the last two seasons, Matt Fraser has also chipped in three points in 13 games with Dallas over the past two years. Frasers defensive game could use some work as well, but with continued improvement in that regard, he could give the Bruins another option up front. Sending a $9-million salary cap hit to Dallas, while taking back $4.25-million (not counting Smiths two-way deal), gives the Bruins room to maneuver financially. According to http://www.capgeek.com, they have nearly $56.9-million committed to the 2013-2014 salary cap for 19 players (including more than $4-million for Marc Savard, who will go on long-term injured reserve), leaving enough room to sign restricted free agent goaltender Tuukka Rask and bid for a scoring winger. There have been rumours about the Bruins having interest in older guys, like Daniel Alfredsson, or re-signing Jagr, but this move could also free them up to join the fray bidding on David Clarkson. How the Bruins spend their money will go a long way towards determining the value from this trade because, straight up, its going to be very difficult for Eriksson and prospects to provide more value than Seguin will deliver to Dallas. Its understandable that the Bruins took the stance that they did on a young player that they didnt think was taking his job as seriously as he should, particularly when they have a veteran group that they expect to contend for the Stanley Cup, but its very risky. Its surely been happening forever but, in recent years, allegations and Deadspin reports have swirled around the likes of Patrick Kane, Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, all of whom have been Cup winners, Kane with the Chicago Blackhawks, who didnt trade him after a highly-publicized weekend in Wisconsin last spring, and Carter and Richards with Los Angeles in 2012, after the Flyers reportedly had their own concerns. Sometimes, a young player may need a trade to humble them and teach them just how high the stakes are in pro hockey, and if that happens for Seguin, the Bruins will come to regret the deal in the long run (if it happens quickly, then they could regret it even sooner). The decision they made, however, was apparently based on something that they werent prepared to accept with their current group.

Almeria, Spain (SportsNetwork. Kyle Wilber Jersey .com) - Barcelona snapped a two-game slide in La Liga play by rallying for a 2-1 victory over Almeria at the Estadio Mediterraneo on Saturday. The Catalans entered the contest in poor form after dropping back-to-back matches in league play to slip from their perch atop the table, and things appeared to heading further south after Thievy Bifouma handed Almeria a 37th- minute lead by slotting a shot past Claudio Bravo on the counter. The hosts held the advantage until the 73rd minute when Neymar got on the end of Luis Suarezs square pass and tucked home the equalizer with a nifty finish. Barcelona ultimately found a winner eight minutes from time and it was Suarez again playing the role of the architect. The Uruguayan delivered an inch- perfect cross to the back post where Jordi Alba was arriving to guide the pass into the back of the net with a first-time finish. It wasnt a vintage Barcelona performance, but it was enough for the fabled club to stop the rot and climb to 25 points on the season. The Catalans climb to second place in the table after Real Madrid cruised to a 5-1 demolition of Rayo Vallecano at the Bernabeu later on Saturday. Gareth Bale and Sergio Ramos put the hosts in good stead with first-half goals, though Alberto Bueno managed to pull one back for Rayo before the intermission. The second half, though, belonged to Madrid as Toni Kroos, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo notched a goal apiece to put the club back atop the table on 27 points. Malaga claimed a 2-1 home win over Eibar on Saturday to improve to 21 points on the season. The visitors took the lead through Mikel Arruabarrenas opener in the 42nd minute, but Juanmi leveled the score in the 53rd before a 90th-minute penalty from Nordin Amrabat handed Malaga the vital victory.

The San Angelo, Texas product, who was a high school and college quarterback sensation in the Lone Star State, will start his first CFL game with the Saskatchewan Roughriders (9-4) on Friday at Mosaic Stadium against the leagues top team, the Calgary Stampeders (11-2). OTTAWA -- Already all but eliminated from playoff contention, the Ottawa Senators will now play the remainder of the season without their leading goal scorer. The Senators announced forward Bobby Ryan would undergo surgery in Montreal Thursday to repair a sports hernia. He will miss the final ten games of the regular season. "Bobby has been dealing with the discomfort of this injury since it was sustained in November," said Senators general manager Bryan Murray. "Both Bobby and our medical staff were hopeful that we could hold off from having surgery until the completion of the season, but he aggravated the condition last Saturday in Dallas to the point that surgery is now the only option." Ryan, who was acquired last July from the Anaheim Ducks, scored a team-leading 23 goals and had 48 points in 70 games. Ryan scored 18 of his 23 goals by Dec. 31 and there was much speculation as to what was the cause of his recent lack of productivity. It now appears the injury played a big factor. "Well he certainly started very, very well," said Murray on the Senators team website. "He shoots the puck awfully well, he scored some goals, his line obviously carried the team early on. He was a big part of that. "I think after the hernia started to get aggravated a little bit he seemed to shoot the puck a bit less. Overall, very happy and satisfied with his overall play and we know hell be a real contributor going forward." Ryans teammates were aware of the discomfort the winger was dealing with and offered their support. "He battled through it and tried to work through it and it was something they were trying to give him help and he played well through it," said linemate Kyle Turris. "It will be nice when hes healthy and feeling better and able to get back at it. "We knew it had been nagging him for a while and for him to battle through it and continue to try playing is something that we all respect him for." Ryans injury has created an opportunity for Mark Stone, who was recalled from Binghamton in the American Hockey League after Ryan aggravated the injury last weekend. "Theres still lots of hockey to be played and I want to make an impression and I want to stay up here," ssaid Stone, who has a goal and an assist in his last two games. Brandon Parker Jersey. "I want to continue to play consistent hockey and stay up here for those ten games and hopefully make a good audition for next year." While the Senators will have to host the Chicago Blackhawks without Ryan on Friday, they will likely have Craig Anderson back in goal against the defending Stanley Cup champions. Anderson missed the last seven games after suffering an upper body injury due to a collision with teammate Milan Michalek in a game against the Nashville Predators March 10. Andersons injury came at a terrible time for the Senators, who were still within reach of one of the final wild card spots in the Eastern Conference. The Senators lost their next five games without Anderson and saw any playoff hope disappear. Anderson has served as Robin Lehners backup for the past two games and says hes ready to face the Blackhawks if called upon. Senators head coach Paul MacLean wouldnt name his starter for Fridays game. "If called upon Ill be the guy that gets in there, but well wait to see what the coach says," said Anderson. "Its been a while. I want to make sure when I get back in there that physically I feel 100 per cent and am able to help the team achieve victory that night." Defenceman Chris Phillips should also return to the lineup after missing the last game. Tampas Ryan Malone hit Phillips in a game Monday, and the two crashed hard into the boards. Phillips missed Tuesdays game against the Florida Panthers, but says he feels good and is ready to return. While the Senators are no longer in playoff contention Phillips says theres numerous reasons for the players to be at their best. "We still have games to play," said Phillips. "Everybodys fighting for a job, a contract, trying to prove to coaches and management that you should be here as well as the pride of wearing these jerseys. Were going to go out until the seasons over, whenever that may be, and we want to go out and play as good as we can on a nightly basis." Notes: C Mika Zibanejad says he should be ready to play Friday after missing the last game. Tomorrows game marks the start of a five-game home stand for the Senators.

SAN ANTONIO -- About an hour after the season ended, Chris Bosh was standing near the bus ramp from where the Miami Heat would soon depart for the airport and the off-season. White Sharks Jerseys . Miamis two-year reign was over. And Bosh almost sounded relieved. The Heat got rolled in the NBA Finals by San Antonio, losing in five games, the last three of them lopsided, and for the first time since 2011 there would be no championship parade in Miami. The same team that the Heat wore down in the 2013 finals had all the answers, ushering in a summer for Miami that will be filled with questions about the futures of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Bosh. "I dont think anybody really enjoyed this season like in years past," Bosh told The Associated Press. "There was no, like, genuine joy all the time. It seemed like work. It was a job the whole year. Winning was just a relief. Losing was a cloud over us sometimes and then wed break out of it -- and then go right back. But we got here. We had a chance. They were just better." That being said, and while hardly committing to a fifth season of the "Big 3" era in Miami, Bosh made it clear: The group wants to remain intact. Whether or not personal choices and financial realities of a salary-capped, luxury-taxed world will allow that to happen remain unclear. "We want to stay together, man," Bosh said. "Ill say that. Its a great organization, great team and great city. And to have a chance, thats all you can ask for." James insisted he hasnt thought about what decisions he has to make this summer. Wade has often expressed interest in remaining with the Heat. Bosh has said repeatedly that he wants to stay. But all can become free agents in the next couple weeks, and the Heat might be rooting for that to happen. By opting out, they could get new deals with the Heat and create financial flexibility for team president Pat Riley to lure new pieces into a locker room that will need new faces. "The whole league continues to get better every single year," James said. "Obviously we would need to get better from every facet, every position. Its just how the league works." For as well as he played in Game 5 -- 31 points and 10 rebounds in what would be the final game of Miamis run as champion -- James best display of defence came afterward, when pressed repeatedly about his future. "I will deal with my summer when I get to that point," James said. "Me and my team will sit down and deal with it. I love Miami. My family loves it. But obviously right now thats not even what Im thinking about. You guys are trying to find answers. Im not going to give you one." The Heat arent expected to hold exit interviews until later this week. James and Wade shared the postgame podium Sunday, possibly for the last time. Wade seemed to be labouring in the last two games of the finals, shooting just 28 per cent from the floor and 50 per cent from the foul line. "It wasnt just Dwyane," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said when asked about Wades struggles. "It was pretty much everybody except for LeBron." Wades knees and health have been a concern all year, never more than in the finals. "Im all right," Wade said. "Cant win them all. You try to, but you cant win them all." The Heat have known for four years that this summer of decisions and possible changes was looming, and have planned accordingly. Besides the "Big 3," the locker room is filled with free-agents-in-waiting. Chris Andersen, who excelled for little money the last two seasons, will be getting a raise from someone. Mario Chalmers can leave, Ray Allen isnt sure if hell play in Miami or anywhere else, Shane Battier is retiring and Udonis Haslem -- who has been with the Heat for 11 seasons, just like Wade -- also has an uncertain future. "It wasnt a distraction," Haslem said. " We got here. And if someone had told me when I signed on the dotted line that Id go to four straight finals, Id take it." The Spurs dont see the Heat going anywhere. "Theyre a class act and theyll be back next year for sure," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "I dont think anybody would really doubt that." Bosh can only hope hes right. "I see why people were saying three-peating is hard. I get it now," Bosh said. "I get it. Theres just so many other things you have to fight. The human psyche, the human condition. Were all human. And it was a long, tough season." Tomas Hertl Jersey .

More importantly, he is trying to show his young teammates the Colorado are still post-season contenders. He hopes winning a series at home was a fresh start.Trouble in the Reds outfield, the Blue Jays rotation could have a new look, an interesting catcher option in Colorado and injuries to Davis, Kipnis, Cain and more. INJURIES - Reds RF Jay Bruce is facing knee surgery for a torn meniscus and it could cost him a month of playing time. Chris Heisey, who has shown some pop (43 home runs, .736 OPS in 1218 career plate appearances) takes over in right for the Reds. - The Reds are also missing LHP Tony Cingrani, who has shoulder tendinitis, but Cincinnati can get away with a four-man rotation for the time being. - A torn tendon in his right hand leaves RHP Brandon Morrow on the 60-day DL, giving J.A. Happ a chance to return to the rotation. Happ has been rocked in three relief appearances this year, so it may not be long before Marcus Stroman gets his turn. Stroman, a 2012 first-round pick, has been recalled from Triple-A Buffalo, where he was 2-2 with a 1.69 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 36 strikeouts in 26 2/3 innings. Stroman starts in the bullpen but figures to be next in line for a rotation opening. - With 1B Chris Davis on the DL due to a strained oblique, Steve Pearce is getting regular playing time for the Orioles. Pearce has done little (.222 AVG, .556 OPS) in 27 plate appearances this year, but since joining the Orioles in 2012, he has seven home runs, 29 RBI, a .253 average and .748 OPS in 248 plate appearances. - A strained hamstring has put White Sox CF Adam Eaton on the DL, giving Jordan Danks a shot at some regular playign time. In 300 career plate appearances, Danks is hitting .207 with a .606 OPS and a dozen stolen bases, so he hasnt clicked in the bigs yet, but had a respectable .772 OPS in four seasons (1566 plate appearances) at Triple-A. - Indians 2B Jason Kipnis is out with a strained oblique, and the Tribe has turned to 21-year-old Jose Ramirez. Ramirez doesnt have any power to speak of, but hit .308 with a .765 OPS and 75 stolen bases, in 1172 minor-league plate appearances. - Need a catcher? While Rockies C Wilin Rosario deals with a viral infection, consider Jordan Pacheco, who is the primary backup in Colorado. Pacheco had played primarily first and third base with the rockies, but, prior to this season, had seen action at catcher in 22 of 213 career games. This year, Pacheco has caught in 10 games, and is hitting .278 with a .769 OPS. He hasnt hit enough to have value as a corner infielder, but as a catcher? Thats a different story. - Tigers RHP Anibal Sanchez is on the DL due to a laceration on his finger, giving LHP Robbie Ray (3-2, 1.53 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 21 K, 29 1/3 IP at Triple-A) a turn in the Detroit rotation. Ray was acquired from Washhington as part of the Doug Fister trade in the offseason. Sharks Jerseys For Sale. . - A run-in with a kitchen knife has sent Giants RHP Matt Cain to the DL, opening up a spot in the rotation for Yusmerio Petit, the 29-year-old who has a 3.31 ERA in 73 1/3 innings with the Giants since 2012. - Angels 3B David Freese suffered a broken finger on the weekend, leaving the hot corner in the hands of Ian Stewart, the one-time top prospect who has power (hit 25 HR in 2009), but is hitting .186 with seven home runs in 396 plate appearances since the start of 2011. - Twins RHP Mike Pelfrey is sidelined with a groin problem, giving Samuel Deduno a chance to return to the starting rotation. Dedunos strikeout rate has improved, working out of the bullpen this year, though hes also giving up more base-runners than he did last season, when he was 8-8 with a 3.83 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 18 starts for the Twins.

NEW ORLEANS - The NBAs best and brightest head to the Big Easy on Sunday night to play in the 63rd All-Star Game at Smoothie King Center. Womens Lakers Jerseys . You can watch all the action on TSN with coverage beginning at 7pm et/4pm pt. LeBron James of the Miami Heat was the leading vote-getter as he starts his 10th All-Star Game. "Its great being here, man, and its nice to see all your fellow guys around the league, both East and West," said James. "Im honored to be here once again and excited to be part of this." He is joined in the Easts starting lineup by Heat teammate Dwyane Wade (10th appearance), Clevelands Kyrie Irving (2nd), Indianas Paul George (2nd) and New Yorks Carmelo Anthony (7th). The leading vote-getter out West was Oklahoma Citys Kevin Durant, who finished second to James in overall voting and will be in his fifth All-Star Game. Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors is going to make his All-Star debut as he earned the most votes in the West backcourt. Kobe Bryant was voted into the other starting spot, despite playing just six games this season. His knee injury precluded him from participating and commissioner Adam Silver named New Orleans Pelicans Anthony Davis to replace him on the roster. Head coach Scott Brooks of OKC selected Bryants replacement in the starting lineup and that man will be Brooks former player, James Harden of the Houston Rockets. LA Clipper Blake Griffin (4th appearance) and Minnesotas Kevin Love (3rd) round out the starting five. Pacers skipper Frank Vogel will coach the Eastern Conference team. The reserves, as always, were selected by the conference coaches and offered little in terms of controversy. Much like the fan vote, coaches were tasked with selecting two backcourt players, three frontcourt players and two wild-cards. The visitors from the East will have newbies in Washingtons John Wall, Torontos DeMar DeRozan and Atlantas Paul Millsap. Miamis Chris Bosh will make his ninth appearance and fellow veterans Joe Johnson of the Brooklyn Nets (7th), Indianas Roy Hibbert (2nd) and Chicagos Joakim Noah (2nd) complete the second unit. The Western reserves are a more veteran-laden group with Dallas Dirk Nowitzki (12th), Clipper Chris Paul (7th), San Antonios Tony Parker (6th) and Dwight Howard (8th) of the Houston Rockets. Portland has two representatives in LaMarcus Aldridge (3rd) and Damian Lillard (1st). Davis will make his All-Star debut in just his second season. "I stayed in the gym last summer trying to get better, and Im doing the same thing this summer. And I have a lot to work on," said Davis. "And to be selected in the All-Star Game and the numbers that Im putting up is amazing, but I know that I have a lot to do." The West is on a three-game winning streak. Last year, Paul earned MVP honors with 20 points, 15 assists and four steals as the West prevailed, 143-138 in Houston. Durant became the first player in history to score 30-plus points in three straight All-Star games. One of the most intriguing aspects of this matchup, (other than both teams in sleeved uniforms), is with the new voting regulations, the East doesnt have a traditional big man in the starting lineup. James has a wide array of post moves and he may be forced to jump center. He, Anthony and George might have a hard time matching up with the much bigger frontline of Durant, Griffin and Love. "I guess it would probably help more, but Im okay with the way its done," coach Vogel said of fans no longer voting for a center. The West has taken four of the last five meetings and five of the last seven.

          Packers QB Aaron Rodgers hopeful he can play vs. Vikings      Cache   Translate Page      
Nothing is certain one way or another, but Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers remains hopeful he’ll play through his knee injury – categorized as a “knee sprain” by Rodgers Wednesday – on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Rodgers didn’t practice Wednesday, but he said he’s felt better every day since Sunday night. “I wanna play, obviously, but just taking it one day at a time,” Rodgers said. “See how it feels tomorrow. See how it feels Friday, Saturday. And then hopefully ready to go Sunday.” Rodgers injured his left knee at the end of a sack against the Chicago Bears in the opener. He left the game but returned for the second half, confident he could do no more damage to the knee, although he admitted pain management was a factor in the second half. The Packers made Rodgers part of the rehab group at practice on Wednesday. The two-time MVP quarterback confirmed he wouldn’t need to practice at all this week to play against the Vikings. However, Rodgers said he needs to have the ability to make subtle movements inside the pocket without significant pain to play up to his standards. He’s been down this road before, most recently when he injured his calf at the end of the 2016 season and had to adjust to playing exclusively from the pocket. He’s also had prior left knee injuries, so there’s experience in dealing with the side effects. Maybe the most telling moment of the 15-minute interview came after Rodgers was asked about backup DeShone Kizer potentially having to play against the Vikings. “I haven’t even thought about that,” Rodgers said. It sure sounds like Rodgers is planning – maybe even expecting – to be on the field Sunday. Related Packers taking day-by-day approach with QB Aaron Rodgers Sign up Like this article?

          Packers WR Davante Adams misses practice with shoulder injury      Cache   Translate Page      
The Green Bay Packers were without receiver Davante Adams at Wednesday’s practice due to a shoulder injury. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers (knee) and safety Josh Jones (ankle) also missed the practice. Adams told reporters in the locker room Wednesday he suffered the injury going to the ground at the end of his 51-yard catch against the Chicago Bears in the season opener. He’s also “feeling good” about his chances of playing against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Davante Adams said he fell on his shoulder Sunday night against Chicago but is "feeling good" about his chances of playing vs. Minnesota. https://t.co/n7V80TyBJY — Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) September 12, 2018 It appears Adams’ absence has nothing to do with a play in the second quarter. Rodgers threw a deep pass over Adams’ head along the near sideline, and the Packers receiver appeared to slow up, raise his hand to call for a sub and then gingerly exit the field. Adams eventually returned with no issue, catching the long pass from Rodgers before scoring a 12-yard touchdown during the Packers’ rally. Rodgers is considered day to day with his knee injury. Jones, a second-year safety, missed Week 1 while still recovering from an ankle injury. Linebacker Oren Burks, who also missed the opener with a shoulder injury, was back at practice. He could make his NFL debut against the Vikings on Sunday. Sign up Like this article?

          Packers keeping Randall Cobb as primary punt returner      Cache   Translate Page      
The Green Bay Packers are sticking with receiver Randall Cobb at punt returner after placing primary returner Trevor Davis on injured reserve Tuesday. Cobb caught nine passes for 142 yards and the go-ahead touchdown in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears, but he also cleanly fielded four punts, returning one for 17 yards. Packers coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Wednesday that Cobb will continue to be the top option for returning punts. “As of today, yes, Randall will be the punt returner,” McCarthy said. The answer left open the possibility of other options getting chances. Rookie Jaire Alexander and veteran Tramon Williams are both listed behind Cobb on the depth chart, while rookie Josh Jackson returned punts during the preseason and warmed up with the punt returners before Sunday’s win over the Bears. Cobb has returned 83 career punts for 803 yards and two touchdowns. He hasn’t returned more than 14 punts in a season since 2012, his second year in the NFL. The Packers likely value Cobb’s experience and reliability. He looked natural tracking the football and catching punts against the Bears. On his only return, he set up a cutback lane and got upfield for 17 yards. Related WATCH: Aaron Rodgers to Randall Cobb stuns Bears again Sign up Like this article?

Minnesota Vikings The premier matchup in the NFC North in week two features the Vikings traveling to Lambeau Field on Sunday to take on the Green Bay Packers.  The Vikings survived their opening game against the San Francisco 49ers by winning 24-16.  Albeit a win for the Vikings, they certainly had their fair share of struggles to open the season.  Led by new quarterback Kirk Cousins, the Vikings offense could only muster 17 points.  In the contest, Cousins threw for 244 yards and two touchdowns while the combined rushing attack of Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray went for a total of 82 yards on the ground. On the defensive side of the ball, the 49ers and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo certainly left some opportunities on the field.  Garoppolo handed the Vikings defense three interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown.  The 49ers offense had a lot of success finding their tight end against the Vikings, but Garoppolo couldn’t capitalize on many open receivers with poor throws. Though the Vikings looked rusty in week one, I would fully expect their best effort this coming Sunday.  The motivation is there for the team to set the tone in the division against the rival Packers and the game will most likely be a slugfest until the end. Detroit Lions Can you say dumpster fire? With the Lions having their fair share of struggles throughout training camp and the preseason, a primetime Monday Night Football matchup against the hapless New York Jets would have seemed like an ideal situation for the team and new head coach Matt Patricia.  Instead, the Lions completely embarrassed themselves in a 48-17 home loss in front of a national audience. In a tight game at the half, the Jets poured on 31 points in the third quarter and were able to find the end zone in just about every realm possible: air, ground, punt return and an interception return.  To make matters worse for the Lions, Matthew Stafford was picked off a total of four times and backup Matt Cassel threw another interception in for good measure in garbage time at the end of the game. Following the humiliating loss, Matt Patricia is already starting to feel the heat from the Detroit media.  Rumors about the Lions players being unhappy about their tough workload during training camp has been spreading and the overall culture of the locker room is being questioned.  To add insult to injury, members of the New York Jets defensive unit are calling out their ability to recognize the Lions offensive plays by Stafford’s hand signals during the game.  By nabbing five interceptions, this seems well within the realm of possibility. Matt Patricia and the Lions certainly have work to do to right their ship as they head west to San Francisco for a Sunday afternoon contest against the 49ers.  Following this weekend, the Lions face three tough opponents in the following weeks in the New England Patriots, Dallas Cowboy and the Green Bay Packers. Chicago Bears We all witnessed the week one story of the Chicago Bears and a loss in that fashion can certainly be demoralizing.  In the collapse, the Bears showed some good things with their strong defense, a creative offense with some weapons and a now game-changing defender in Khalil Mack.  Where the Bears go from here will be the true test of their will. Following the loss, the Chicago media has been brutal on new head coach Matt Nagy.  But Nagy manned up and took a large brunt of the blame for his play calling in the second half of the game against the Packers.  He also reiterated that the loss could be used to learn from and get better as a team. With his head in the right place following week one, Nagy looks to prepare his team for a visit from the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football this week.  The Seahawks will enter Soldier Field at 0-1 as well after their down to the wire loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday.  With both teams desperately seeking their first victory of the season, this game will be an indicator on two fronts.  First, seeing how the Bears respond to their crushing loss to the Packers may provide an indication of how the rest of their season will unfold.  And after their week one loss, this game will provide insight as to whether the Seahawks will be any sort of threat in a heavily contested NFC in 2018.

          Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes says Aaron Rodgers 'has no weaknesses'      Cache   Translate Page      
The Green Bay Packers face an old rival for the second consecutive week on Sunday, as the Minnesota Vikings head to Lambeau Field for what should be one of the biggest matchups of the young NFL season. The biggest storyline, of course, is whether Aaron Rodgers will suit up after what initially looked to be a devastating knee injury against the Chicago Bears. But the ambiguity of the situation hasn’t stopped Minnesota from game planning for Rodgers. During a conference call with reporters Wednesday, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer jokingly said, “Yeah, he (Rodgers) walks on water so I’m sure he’s gonna play.” Zimmer wasn’t the only Viking who had high praise for Rodgers. All-Pro cornerback Xavier Rhodes co-wrote a piece on The Players’ Tribune earlier this week, talking about who he believes to be the seven best players in the NFC North. To the surprise of nobody, Aaron Rodgers was No. 1 on his list. From the article: “Rodgers just has it. And he can do it from the pocket, outside the pocket, running left, running right, while he’s getting tackled … this guy has no weakness. He doesn’t get frazzled. He’s so accurate, always on the money. And the worst part? He knows it. His demeanor — his swagger — he’s so confident in his game that it actually bothers you. And you can’t even talk trash about him. You have to respect him, because he’s one of the best to ever play the game.” The respect Rhodes has for Rodgers is extremely apparent, and he even went as far as to say Rodgers has no weakness in his game. But the Packers quarterback might be without his full arsenal of skillsets if he plays on Sunday. As Rhodes stated, Rodgers can do it all – but his game is heavily predicated on extending plays outside the pocket. With a left knee injury that could interfere with his plant foot when stepping into throws, as well as limiting his mobility outside the pocket, Rodgers may have to rely much more on his pure arm talent against an intimidating defense. Rhodes was a part of a Vikings defense that held San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garappolo in check in Week 1, allowing him to complete just 15-of-33 passes for 237 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. Based on what Rhodes said, however, none of the above could even matter. After all, Rodgers just has ‘it‘. The other six players on Rhodes’ list were Matthew Stafford (2), Harrison Smith (3), Xavier Rhodes (4), Jordan Howard (5), Everson Griffen (6) and Golden Tate (7).

          Packers taking day-by-day approach with QB Aaron Rodgers      Cache   Translate Page      
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers will work in the rehab group during Wednesday practice, and the Green Bay Packers are planning to take a day-by-day approach as Rodgers works his way back from a knee injury suffered in Week 1. Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Rodgers will be given the entire week to get ready to play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Players in the rehab group generally work to the side of practice and are not involved in live team drills, meaning backup DeShone Kizer will take the first-team reps on Wednesday. Rodgers injured his left knee at the end of a sack against the Chicago Bears in Week 1. He left the game in the first half but returned to start the third quarter, helping spark a comeback from 20 points down. Buzzed on adrenaline in the immediate moments following Sunday night’s comeback win, Rodgers confidently confirmed he’d play against the Vikings in Week 2. He’s since backtracked, stating on ESPN Radio Tuesday that he’s now taking it one day at a time – a line relayed by the Packers coach Wednesday. McCarthy will speak again before practice Thursday. The Packers will deliver official playing designations for injured players on Friday. Sign up Like this article?

          WATCH: Every Aaron Rodgers completion from epic Week 1 comeback      Cache   Translate Page      
Tired of watching Aaron Rodgers lead the Green Bay Packers back from 20 points down to beat the Chicago Bears in Week 1? No? Perfect. Here’s a highlight reel of every completion Rodgers produced during the second half of the Packers’ historic comeback Sunday night: The rapid-fire cutup really does show, in great detail, how the Packers adjusted to the Bears’ pass-rush and Rodgers’ injury with a quick, effective passing game designed to get the ball into the hands of the Packers’ receivers. It was devastatingly effective, with Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison and Davante Adams making big plays after the catch on numerous occasions. Overall, Rodgers completed 17 passes for 276 yards and three touchdowns in the second half. Also, note how much better the Packers offensive line played in the second half. You can bet a new plan of attack and a desire to keep an injured quarterback protected contributed to the rebound. On several of the big plays, including the touchdown passes to Allison and Cobb, the offensive line blocked for at least four seconds, allowing Rodgers to stay alive in the pocket and find completions downfield. Rodgers gets all the credit and the individual highlight package, but it took all 11 guys to get it done Sunday night. Sign up Like this article?

          4chan trolls celebrated Eric Trump's anti-Semitic dog whistle that Bob Woodward wrote his book for "extra shekels"      Cache   Translate Page      

Users on 4chan’s “/pol/,” a far-right forum known for bigotry and anti-Semitism, lauded Eric Trump’s recent remarks that The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward was seeking “three extra shekels,” taking it as an anti-Semitic dog whistle and claiming it showed Trump visited the forum.

During Eric Trump’s July 12 appearance on Fox & Friends, co-host Steve Doocy commented on press attention around Woodward’s new book, Fear: Trump in the White House. Eric Trump responded, “You can write a sensational nonsense book -- CNN will definitely have you on there, because they love to trash the president -- it will mean you sell three extra books, you make three extra shekels. I mean, at the behest of the American people, at the behest of our country and a president that’s doing a phenomenal job by every quantifiable metric, I mean -- is that really where we are?”

In response, some journalists noted that the word “shekels” was an anti-Semitic dig and that it has been used by neo-Nazis.

On 4chan’s “/pol/” message board, users lauded Eric Trump’s remarks. They wrote that Trump “named the Jew,” which is which is an anti-Semitic call to action to single out Jewish people and point out they are Jewish, while claiming they control economics and politics domestically and around the globe (Woodward is also not Jewish). They also posted a caricature of a Jewish man crying and added, “[that feeling when] I didn't get the shekels” and wrote, “A FUCKING AMERICAN NAMED THE JEWS. HE FUCKING DID IN TV.” Users also claimed that the comment showed that “it was pretty god damn obvious that [Eric Trump] lurks around here” and that he “spends way to (sic) much time on /pol/ and slipped up.” They also said it was proof that the Trumps “lurk POL daily.”

4chan has pushed pro-Trump narratives and conspiracy theories regularly in recent years, including referring to President Donald Trump as “God emperor Trump.” And there are signs that the Trump camp has reciprocated in the past. Then-candidate Trump tweeted a racist image that had been “floating around” on 4chan. The Trump campaign’s attacks on Chicago protestors also directly echoed a 4chan thread. Trump also tweeted a meme showing a Star of David over Hillary Clinton and dollar bills that first spread on 8chan, a more extreme version of 4chan. At one point, Donald Trump Jr. also followed 4chan-linked account @polNewsForever on Twitter, which has since been suspended.

Slow down and smell the roses, smile at the sunshine and be glad you're alive; and just live and LET live. This is the only life we get so don't waste it being such a dick.

Depois de ser acusada de copiar Path McGrath e Paul Gaultier, Kim Kardashian e sua marca KKW Beauty estão envolvidos em mais um polêmica. Ela lançou a coleção Cherry Blossom e alguns fãs perceberam certa semelhança com a linha Naked Cherry, da Urban Decay.

Ambas as coleções apresentam tons avermelhados, rosados e bronze. A coleção da KKW Beauty também inclui três blushers e três delineadores labiais, enquanto a da Urban Decay possui dois delineadores, uma paleta e um spray com aroma de cereja.

Outros fãs sairam em sua defesa, porém, observando que a cópia é improvável, já que os dois produtos saíram com apenas algumas semanas de intervalo, e a produção levaria muito mais tempo do que isso. "Duvido muito que Kim tenha visto a coleção Cherry, da Urban Decay, e fabricado uma coleção inteira de maquiagem em uma semana", escreveu um deles. Kim também comentou que se inspirou nas flores de cerejeira que decoraram seu chá de bebê para Chicago West em novembro de 2017.

          Sixty years ago, Little Rock closed all its public high schools rather than desegregate them      Cache   Translate Page      
The tossed year.

On Sept. 27, 1958, 60 years ago this month, Little Rock decided by a vote of 19,470 to 7,561 to keep its public high schools closed rather than desegregate them. Although the events of school desegregation at Central High in September 1957 are etched in the local, state and national consciousness, the events of the following year are unjustly overlooked. When they are mentioned at all, people refer to them as the "Lost Year." The term is misleading because the year was not lost, but rather tossed — that is, thrown willfully away by a predominantly white Little Rock electorate that was hoodwinked by segregationist politicians into believing that the city could survive without public schools. Events proved just how wrong those politicians were.

School closing was the result of an ongoing legal battle over school desegregation. On Feb. 20, 1958, the Little Rock School Board petitioned U.S. District Court Judge Harry J. Lemley for a two-and-half-year delay in its desegregation plan. On June 21, Lemley granted the delay on the grounds that the city needed a cooling-off period after the clashes witnessed in September 1957. On Aug. 18, NAACP attorney Wiley Branton successfully had the delay overruled on appeal. School board attorneys then appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Since the Court did not convene until Oct. 6, it could not hear the appeal until after the Little Rock schools opened, presumably on a segregated basis, in September.

On Aug. 25, U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren announced that the court would meet in a special session Aug. 28 to hear the Little Rock case. On Sept. 12, the court ordered the school board to proceed with its desegregation plan. In the landmark ruling of Cooper v. Aaron, the court said that violence and disruption could not be used as an excuse for delaying school desegregation. If the court had allowed a delay, it would have signaled that mob rule could be used to stall the enforcement of federal laws. The federal government afterward indicated that it was prepared to support the opening of schools with the assistance of federal marshals if necessary. Everything appeared to be in place to ensure a smooth and orderly process of desegregation, in contrast to the scenes of lawlessness in 1957.

Gov. Orval Faubus had other plans. While desegregation was being debated in the courts, Faubus made his move. On Aug. 26, the governor presided over a special session of the Arkansas General Assembly that pushed through six bills providing him with sweeping powers to uphold segregation. One bill allowed Faubus to close any school ordered to desegregate by federal order. With the school closed, voters in the local school district would participate in a referendum to decide if the school should reopen or not. On the day that the court ordered desegregation to proceed, Faubus closed all of Little Rock's public high schools. In the referendum held Sept. 27, the governor handily stacked the cards in his favor by providing a single choice between keeping the schools closed or accepting "complete and total integration."

The morning after the referendum result, Faubus pressured the school board into leasing the public high schools to the Little Rock Private School Corp. (LRPSC) for private operation. NAACP attorneys won an injunction to stop this. Faubus then assisted the LRPSC in purchasing private buildings with public funds to operate as schools. That year, white students variously attended private segregated schools, schools in other Arkansas districts, out-of-state schools or took correspondence courses through the University of Arkansas. With access to fewer resources, black students were hit the hardest. Most attended classes in other Arkansas districts or went to an out-of-state school. Some took a correspondence course offered by L.M. Christophe, the principal of the black Horace Mann High School. The state retained both white and black teachers on full pay to preside over empty classrooms in closed schools. The only thing that took place in public high schools that year was Central High's football program, which was apparently the single part of its educational services that the city felt it could not survive without.

Faubus reaped the political benefits of school closing. In November 1958, he became only the second governor in Arkansas history to win a third consecutive term in office. The leading segregationist voice in the state, Arkansas Association of White Citizens' Council head Jim Johnson, won election to the Arkansas Supreme Court. In a shocking result, Little Rock segregationist and school board member Dale Alford defeated, as a write-in candidate, incumbent Congressman Brooks Hays, who had held the seat for 16 years. Meanwhile, all of the Little Rock School Board (except for Alford, who would soon leave to take up his role as congressman) resigned. As one of its final acts in office, the board voted to buy out the contract of school Superintendent Virgil Blossom, the architect of Little Rock's school desegregation plan.

The election of a new school board proved a watershed event. At the school-closing referendum, a group of white women had formed the Women's Emergency Committee to Open Our Schools (WEC). At its helm was Adolphine Fletcher Terry, the wife of former Arkansas Congressman David D. Terry. Although unsuccessful in getting the schools opened, the WEC, itself segregated, remained an important lobbying force within the white community. At the school board election, Terry managed to persuade five candidates to represent business interests against attempts by segregationists to dominate the school board. In a closely contested election, a split ticket of three business candidates and three segregationists won.

The partial victory belatedly stirred Little Rock's white businessmen to speak up about school desegregation. There was a rising awareness of the community damage being done. Teachers, unoccupied in empty classrooms, were leaving the public school system in droves. The education of the city's students was being severely disrupted. And, of more pressing concern to the businessmen, the city's economy was suffering badly. Not one new industry had chosen to locate in Little Rock since the events of September 1957. It was claimed that the negative headlines surrounding school desegregation had cost the city five new industrial plants that would have brought in $1 million in revenue and 300 new jobs.

E. Grainger Williams, the new president of the Little Rock Chamber of Commerce, questioned the wisdom of school closing in his inaugural speech on Jan. 14, 1959. Williams told the audience that, "no matter what our personal feelings might be," the "time has come for us to evaluate ... the cost of the lack of public education." The politicians did not seem to care. The 1959 Arkansas General Assembly passed another 32 pro-segregation bills into law.

A showdown between the business community and committed segregationists in the city finally came in May 1959. At a meeting of the new school board May 5, segregationist members attempted to push through measures to remove anyone unsympathetic to their cause from the public school system. Blocking each of these measures, the school board members representing business interests then withdrew from the meeting to dissolve the quorum. However, after they left, Ed McKinley, the segregationist president of the school board, ruled that the meeting could continue as normal. Segregationists proceeded to make a series of arbitrary decisions about the running of the school system. Most dramatic of all was the decision not to renew the contracts of 44 public school employees, including seven principals, 34 teachers and three secretaries.

On May 8, a group of downtown business and civic leaders met to form a new organization, Stop This Outrageous Purge (STOP). The organization was dedicated to recalling the three segregationist school board members for election. On May 15, segregationists formed a Committee to Retain Our Segregated Schools (CROSS) to recall the business community representatives. On May 25, the day of the recall election, the vote narrowly went the businessmen's way, with all the business representatives reinstated and all the segregationist candidates dismissed from the school board. The new board, taking the election as a mandate to reopen the schools, began preparations for token desegregation in September 1959 by assigning three black students to Central High and three to Hall High. On June 18, the U.S. District Court upheld the contention of NAACP attorneys that Arkansas's school-closing laws were unconstitutional.

In a surprise move designed to stymie attempts by Faubus to prevent the schools from reopening, the school board announced in July that the school year would begin a month early, on Aug. 12. When the schools reopened as planned, three black students, Effie Jones, Elsie Robinson and Estella Thompson, peacefully entered Hall High under a city police guard. At the state Capitol, 1,000 whites attended a segregationist rally. Later, around 200 segregationists marched on Central High. City policemen firmly enforced order as two of the Little Rock Nine, Jefferson Thomas and Elizabeth Eckford, entered the school. Carlotta Walls, another of the Nine, and the third black student assigned to Central that year, had not yet returned from completing summer school in Chicago. For segregationists, the battle had been lost, and their struggle to retain strictly segregated public schools was finally over. The struggle to achieve the meaningful desegregation of the city's schools, and to ensure equal access to a quality education for all of the city's students, continued on, as it still does today.

Gary Vaynerchuk and I gave a co-keynote in NYC at Photo Plus Expo. My background is as a creator turned entrepreneur, and Gary’s a born entrepreneur and then realized that creativity was how he was going to take his business to the next level. Unsurprisingly, we both ended up in roughly the same space. Instead of delivering a keynote that showed my own pictures or videos or stories like I’ve done at Photo Plus in the past, we decided to co-host a Q&A and answer 3 audience members’ biggest current struggles. I’ve been getting a ton of great feedback on the Q&A style keynotes I’ve been doing, so I’m pumped to share another one with you. In today’s episode, Jason has a growing portrait business in Chicago, but seems to have plateaued on the money that he’s able to make using his current strategies. We let him leave the stage only after offering a new blueprint for how to set his prices to make the kind of money he dreams of. Niki has been hustling like crazy shooting volume to grow her brand, but now she’s getting antsy not making money even though she’s so busy. She seemed to know all the […]

          Why Vote Democrat?      Cache   Translate Page      
I can’t, for the life of me, figure out why ANYBODY of even average intelligence, would vote for a Dumocrat—ever. Dumocrats fall all over themselves to support abysmally STUPID policies, all the time. They are in favor of socialism—which is a system BASED on the THEFT of the fruits of their labors from those capable and willing to earn their own way, so they can GIVE it, UNEARNED, to those who produce NOTHING. But they still believe in it, in spite of the sure knowledge that it not only does not work, it is DESTRUCTIVE, both to the economy, and to the individual. Every city where Dumocrats run things is in trouble. Gang trouble, money trouble, “social” trouble. They make promises, but never deliver—yet gullible voters keep electing them to mess things up, even more. Look at Chicago, which is, and has been, run by Dumocrats. It is so broke it has to issue IOU’s to lottery winners. It has some of the toughest anti-gun laws in the nation (some so tough they have been declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court). Coupled with the highest rate of “gun crime” in the nation. They promote such really stupid things as gay marriage, that there are more than two sexes, and allowing MEN into women’s restrooms and changing rooms if they THINK they are a woman, that day. There’s a lot more, but I don’t have room for it, here. But voters in many areas keep electing them, while they complain about the results of their own policies and those gullible voters suffer. (Just common sense)

          Garry Marshall Theatre Appoints New Managing Director      Cache   Translate Page      

Garry Marshall Theatre's Board of Directors is proud to announce that Kurt J. Swanson has joined the new nonprofit's leadership team as Managing Director.

"We're thrilled to welcome Kurt to the Garry Marshall Theatre," says Artistic Director, Dimitri Toscas. "His extensive knowledge of nonprofit development and theatre management is bolstered only by his first-hand understanding of the local community and what makes it tick. His leadership style is inspiring and he's quickly become a valued member of our team."

Swanson is the theatre's first official Managing Director in its year-long history after relaunching as the nonprofit Garry Marshall Theatre in the summer of 2017.

The role of Managing Director was created after the departure of Executive Director Sherry Greczmiel at the end of the inaugural season. Swanson will lead the organization's charge in fundraising, infrastructure development, and brand-building while guiding the theatre in the best-practice business principles that pertain to nonprofit live performance.

"I feel very fortunate to have been able to capitalize on my long-time performing arts and theatre background with my business and fiscal skills that have been honed over several decades," says Swanson. "This is my 'home town theatre' since I've lived nearly two decades in the neighborhood and have always admired this performing space."

Alongside the Artistic team of Dimitri Toscas and Joseph Leo Bwarie, Swanson will be a major player in the continuation of programming during the Garry Marshall Theatre 2018/2019 Season, which begins on October 12 with a new production of Real Women Have Curves by Josefina López.

With over 30 years of continuous nonprofit business management of performing arts, nonprofit, and social services organizations, Swanson has a long history of bold, dynamic leadership and collaboration. He has served numerous theatres and nonprofits across the country - including the The Broad Stage (Santa Monica) as General Manager, Steppenwolf Theatre Company (Chicago) as Interim Business Manager, Arts Services Associates (Milwaukee) assigned as Business Manager for Theatre X, and Box Office Manager for Skylight Theatre in Milwaukee. He also served as Operations Director of CASA of Los Angeles and Executive Director of Animal Samaritans in the Coachella Valley.

Swanson's appointment culminates a three-month search process, which considered a significant candidate pool from Los Angeles and across the country. The search was conducted by the Garry Marshall Theatre Board of Directors.

About Kurt Swanson

Chicago native Kurt Swanson has been involved in theatre since his years as a musician for High School plays. His performance skill garnered statewide awards and earned him scholarships. He served in a variety of administrative positions with social service and arts organizations in Milwaukee and Chicago, including serving as a founding member of the "Second Tier" collaborative arts organization in Milwaukee, and as manager of Theatre X, an internationally touring ensemble theatre. In Chicago, he served as finance manager for Steppenwolf Theatre during the time of its mainstage, experimental and Broadway productions, often interacting with major stars and virtually every sector of professional theatre production. He has served as senior staff to major nonprofits in the Coachella Valley and Los Angeles, and served on the board of Syzygy Theatre Group.

I saw the first tower fall from Pier A park in Hoboken. I actually left right after that, because I thought to myself that I wasn't going to stand there and gawk at people dying in front of me. I brought my kids to the new WTC Observation Deck last week, and told them my story of that day. Maybe we'll go to the museum soon. The Oculus is impressive and nice, but actually a gross embarassment of hubris. They could have spent that money on half of a Hudson River tunnel. It is actually shocking to me how much unfettered public access there is now to the entire WTC site.

          Interview: Season Seven Opening Night Film for Chicago’s Asian Pop-Up Cinema is 'Adulthood'      Cache   Translate Page      

CHICAGO – It’s another opening and another show, as Season Seven of Chicago’s Asian Pop-Up Cinema (APUC) starts it’s run of showcase films, starting with South Korea’s “Adulthood” on Wednesday, September 12th, 2018. Director Kim In-seon and lead actress Lee Jae-in of “Adulthood” will appear on behalf of the film at the screening, which begins at 7pm at the AMC River East 21 theatre. For details and tickets, click here.

“Adulthood” is the story of Kyung-Un (Lee Jae-in), a 14-year-old girl who meets her uncle Jae-Min (Um Tae-Goo) for the first time at the funeral of her father (and his brother). The attention the uncle gives her at first is confusing, but his motive was to steal her insurance money to pay off a loan shark. When Kyung-Un finds out, she has no recourse but to join her uncle in a con job, designed to romance and then rip off a lonely pharmacist (Seo Jung-yeon). Somehow, these three souls learn more than they bargained for in this situation, and this emotional film is a simple story of unexpected redemption.

Season Seven of APUC, which runs from September 12th through November 14th, 2018, and will highlight films from South Korea, the Philippines, China, Thailand, India, Hong Kong, Japan, Tibet, Vietnam and Taiwan. The main feature film presentations will occur at the AMC River East 21 in downtown Chicago, with other various locations for special events, in addition to a number of free screenings.

In anticipation of the Season Seven Opening Night of APUC, HollywoodChicago.com spoke to director Kim In-seon and actress Lee Jae-in, and the two women collaborators talked about, through an interpreter, the process of creating the special relationships in the film.

HollywoodChicago.com: Kim, in writing the screenplay and piecing together the story, which of the characters did you most identify with, and how do you think that identity came out in the story?

Kim In-seon: At first, I connected to the character of Jae-Min, the uncle trying to find himself as an adult in his thirties… despite his age, he acted immature, and at that time it felt like me. [laughs] But as I was finishing the film, I was more connected to the younger character of Kyung-Un, because what she was going through was how I felt when I was a teenager, which was a loneliness and a desire to become an adult as quickly as possible.

HollywoodChicago.com: Jae, when you first read the script, what did you immediately understand about your character of Kyung-Un that made you know that you could portray her?

Lee Jae-in: We are of similar age as teenagers, and I understood her feeling of loneliness. All of the expressions of her emotions came through her feeling of being alone, and I knew I could portray that side of her.

HollywoodChicago.com: Kim, one of the underlying stories in the film is the difficulties of South Korean women to trust men. But what difficulty did you most want to portray in the relationship of the pharmacist Jum-Lee to the uncle Jae-Min?

Kim In-seon: More than a general distrust for men, I was focusing on the specific situation that Jum-Lee was facing… she was in her late forties, single and a professional. Her relationship options were limited, and she was finding that the attitude of men she was encountering was not serious. In that process she felt isolated, and it was hard for her to stay open to a possibility of connection.

What made the difference in the way Jae-Min approached her is that he had a daughter [part of the con was that Kyung-Un pretended to be Jae-Min’s daughter], and that is what opened Jum-Lee to the possibility of taking a chance again in that relationship. It was really about trusting her emotions and where she was in life.

HollywoodChicago.com: What part of the process while doing the film did you feel comfortable with your co-star Tae-Goo Um, and what part of his portrayal of the uncle Jae-Min did you most connect to?

Lee Jae-in: When I first met Tae-Goo, it felt awkward, but as we went through the stages of filmmaking he was incredibly nice and very funny. He also taught me a lot about acting, especially in detailed facial expressions.

His personality was so different than the Jae-Min character he was portraying, so I was amazed at times how well he was able to become the role. I believe that between Jae-Min and my character, they were fulfilling the emotional things that each were missing, and filling the void that they felt.

HollywoodChicago.com: Kim, the three main characters got a bit of redemption by the end of the film. Which of the characters do you believe most benefited by this redemption?

Kim In-seon: My intent was not to show any dramatic changes in the lives of those characters, but only a hint of change by the end. For example, Jae-Min slowly came out of his immaturity and started realizing his responsibilities, so there was growth there. With Kyung-Un it was the realization that someone could love and care about her again, which gave he self confidence. I didn’t see much growth in the Jum-Lee character, except to connect with Kyung-Un as a friend.

HollywoodChicago.com: How are women filmmakers treated in South Korea? Do you think there is opportunity there if you make successful films, or do you believe men are given better chances to succeed or try again than women?

Adult3
Lee Jae-in and Kim In-seon in Chicago for ‘Adulthood’

Kim In-seon: Before I got the opportunity to do this feature film, I started with three short films. At short film festivals in South Korea, the percentage of women filmmakers participating is around 70 percent. But when it comes to making either independent or commercial feature films, it’s almost impossible for women to get an opportunity. And as you said in the question, it is men that are more likely to get a second chance to make a film if the first one doesn’t make money. For women, that second chance doesn’t exist.

The type of films available for women to direct is also very limited. The commercial films are mostly in the thriller and action genre, and those are almost all directed by men. It’s frustrating for me, but the only way to change things within is to keep doing the work and putting it out there.

HollywoodChicago.com: Finally, for both of you. As Jae-Min and Kyung-Un walk down a new road in their relationship, what do you think is the most important things they learned in their journey of coming together?

Kim In-seon: To me, it was about really spending time with a person and getting to know them, and that leads to becoming a better person. Jae-Min and Kyung-Un learn a lot about each other and themselves in the time they spend together, and in that way become better people through that relationship.

Lee Jae-in: The character of Kyung-Un was seriously alone at the beginning of the film, and had learned to adapt to that loneliness. Her and Jae-Min adapted to each other, and for the first time in a long time she depended on someone, and learned to trust a togetherness in a relationship again. The uncle and the niece, in the end, had similar personalities, and I think they’ll continue to develop and cherish those similarities, and continue to be more honest as their lives go on.

Opening Night of Season Seven of the Asian Pop-Up Cinema is “Adulthood” on September 12th, 2018, at the AMC River East 21, 322 East Illinois Street, Chicago. Director Kim In-seon and lead actress Lee Jae-in will make an appearance on behalf of the film. For a complete overview Chicago’s Asian Pop-Up Cinema, click here.
