ABOVE: Dr. Reagan Flowers poses with supporters at C-STEM Free Little Library Public Art Project unveiling This past Thursday, September 6th, C-STEM Teacher and Student Support Services, Inc. (C-STEM), in collaboration with the Harambee Art Gallery, unveiled an unprecedented community public art project that they hope will bridge the digital divide. This collaboration is the brainchild of Dr. Reagan Flowers, who is the founder of C-STEM. Dr. Flowers’ vision for this project was to create a free little library, beautify the community with public art, close the digital divide and create a safer neighborhood. “This project is living proof that the act of doing one thing can pay dividends beyond anything you ever imagined,” said Dr. Flowers. My former students from Jack Yates chose their future when they accepted the challenge to build a robot. That single choice made what seemed to be impossible, possible. And now, 18 years later, those robots are still inspiring creativity and innovation, and are giving back to the community far beyond their robotics competitions.” Harambee Art Gallery’s Charles Washington – a noted Third Ward environmental artist – received the commission for the public structure, which includes a Free Little Library with a “take-a-book, leave-a-book” policy. This beautification project is being housed at the C-STEM headquarters, located at 3226 Alabama St., in Houston’s historic Third Ward. Washington made the C-STEM Free Little Library Public Art Project from Sea Turtle sculptures that were used as canvases by PreK-12th grade students, and incorporated robot parts from Jack Yates High School students whoread more

          EXCLUSIVE: Cosby Recording Could Prove Comedian Innocent      Cache   Translate Page      

A source who can only be identified as a ‘neutral’ Montgomery County Court official, claims a tape played in court that helped convict Bill Cosby was either doctored or partly erased and the original recording contained information that would exonerate the comedian. “No one in the media, no one on the defense really, have either asked me or pressed me or, to my knowledge, anyone else about the tape,” said the individual, who has requested anonymity because identification could lead to employment loss and other sanctions. The recording in question aired during Cosby’s trial in April before a jury found him guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault for providing Benadryl tablets to former Temple University employee Andrea Constand and then engaging in foreplay where he touched her under her pants and she touched his penis. “What did you give my daughter? I know my daughter ….,” Gianna Constand, Andrea’s mother, said in a decades-old conversation with Cosby. However, a source said what’s been omitted from the tape could prove Cosby’s innocence. “What’s not on the tape are two things. It was not what’s been reported that this is some angry person,” the source said. “She said, ‘Look Bill, I know my daughter and something is wrong with my daughter. Bill, I have to tell you something, what did you give my daughter?’” While that might sound consistent to the recording played inside the Montgomery County Courthouse in Pennsylvania, the source said here’s where the change or omission occurred. “Mr. Cosby said to her,read more

ABOVE: Mayor Sylvester Turner “Be honest. If Sylvester Turner were White he would have made the cover of TIME Magazine following Hurricane Harvey” Houston has always been a city of subtle and sophisticated, yet polarizing racism. My boxing coach used to say that the most dangerous and damaging punch is the one you don’t see coming. So it is with racism. The most dangerous and damaging impact does not come from the overt racism you see, but it comes from the passive-aggressive bigotry we sometimes tend to miss if we aren’t paying close attention. I call it “designer racism.” It may not look like much on the surface but in the end you pay a higher price for it. I was reminded of this type of “designer racism” while reading a recent article written by the Houston Chronicle’s editorial board entitled “Remember the Villains of Harvey.” While giving accolades to elected officials who worked around the clock and behind the scenes to help us recover, Harris County Judge Ed Emmett and U.S. John Cornyn were mentioned, while the mayor of the City of Houston, Sylvester Turner, was not even mentioned at all. As a matter of fact, in a city where the population is majority Black and Brown, no Black elected officials were even mentioned. That’s another story. I want to stay focused on Mayor Turner, however. Everybody knows that Mayor Turner displayed extraordinary leadership unlike anything this city has ever seen, before and during one of the most dangerous and destructive natural disasters inread more

          Three African Americans Running for Governor in Three States      Cache   Translate Page      

President Trump has angered and mobilized voters across the nation to the point that many have been challenged to turn out en masse this fall to register and vote for candidates who reject his oft time bitter rhetoric. For sure, Black Americans have clinched historic roles in the battle to halt and reverse President Trump’s agenda, with a record three African American candidates running for governor this November in three states — Florida, Georgia and Maryland. Each is trying to return their state’s governorship to Democratic control. In the process, political analysts said, the three contenders represent a new chapter for the Democratic Party. They reflect the emerging leadership that is younger, more female, broadly diverse and socially progressive, according to analysts. With the exception of Maryland, their Republican opponents are hard-line Trump supporters, dissenting from his agenda quietly when they do. “All of these candidates are pragmatic progressives,” said Emory University political science professor Andra Gillespie, a Richmond area native who earned her degree at the University of Virginia. “They are hoping to present plans to address the economic anxieties of the average working family.” All three gubernatorial contests present distinct challenges to the contenders, regardless of party, based on the views of political analysts. In Florida, where Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum scored a surprise win in his recent Democratic Party primary, the challenge is stitching together party leaders who all endorsed him after the primary contest, then raising interest among others. Gillum won only 34 percent of the vote to clinch the partyread more

          Houston Prepares For Historic Event with First Ever All-Black Classical Music Festival      Cache   Translate Page      

Musicians Travel From Across the World to Perform at The 2018 Colour Of Music Festival at University Of Houston – September 12-16, 2018 The University of Houston’s College of Liberal and Social Sciences, the Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts, H-E-B Corporation and the City of Houston have joined forces to present the first ever all-Black classical music Festival in Houston. The Colour of Music Festival Petit’ runs September 12-16, 2018. Scores of Classical Conductors, Composers, Musicians and Operatic Singers will travel from France, Great Britain, Columbia, Russia and cities across the United States to participate in this Historic event. The Festival will feature full classical performances in organ, piano, vocal, chamber and orchestral works. Classical Musical enthusiasts, supporters and average citizens have shown amazing interest in the festival and plan to attend Lee Pringle, of Charleston North Carolina, founded the Colour of Music Festival, in 2013. Mr. Pringle, a singer and classical music aficionado, felt there was little representation of Black musicians in the classical genre’. Despite hundreds of well-educated classically trained musicians, only 3 percent were part of big city orchestras across the nation. Many Black classical artists travel abroad for work. In his research, Mr. Pringle found, Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges, an 18th century African-French composer, and contemporary of Mozart. He wrote opera and classical masterpieces that equaled or far exceeded those of his contemporaries. Though highly recognized overseas, Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges’ contributions have gathered little notice in the U.S. Armed with this history and the plight of today’s classicalread more

          Bank Overdraft Fees Strip More Than $11 billion from Consumers Each Year      Cache   Translate Page      

For many people, little things can in time lead to big problems. When personal checking accounts are involved, transactions without available funds in checking accounts can trigger a series of fees that wind up taking a big bite out of the next paycheck. What’s more, many times consumers have no way of knowing the real cost until after a bank statement arrives weeks later. Banks and other depository institutions market these fees as convenient “overdraft protection.” What they do to consumers is strip billions of dollars each year from personal checking accounts, while generating a lucrative, no-lose revenue stream for these institutions. New research by the Center for Responsible Lending (CRL) finds that last year among the nation’s largest banks, overdraft fees were a $11.45 billion bonanza. “Unfair Market: The State of High-Cost Overdraft Practices in 2017,” analyzes both how overdraft fee revenue is generated, as well as the practices borne on the backs of America’s working poor. “Instead of serving families fairly, banks are driving many customers deeper in a hole and often out of the banking system altogether,” said Pete Smith, the report’s author and CRL senior researcher. “Over the last 15 to 20 years, many financial institutions have betrayed the trust of their account holders by replacing what was once an occasional accommodation with an exploitative system of routine high-cost overdraft fees that drive account holders deep into debt.” “Banks set up systems at every turn where they can maximize the revenue they generate with these fees,” continued Smith. “They’ve found aread more

Celebrates 30 Years of Service On August 6, 2018, the Missouri City/Sugar Land, Texas Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. celebrated 30 years of service in the Fort Bend County and Greater Houston area. To celebrate this landmark year, the chapter hosted a weekend of activities at the South Shore Harbour Resort.

          The Separation Between Church and the State of Your Health May Be Narrowing      Cache   Translate Page      

“Much of the work of … prevention must occur at the community level, where human relationships breathe life into public policy. American communities are also home to scores of faith-based and secular initiatives that help reduce risk factors and promote protective factors associated with many of our most pressing social problems.” The separation between church and the state of your health may be narrowing, according to a new study released in the journal, Health Promotion Practice. In a recent survey of more than 1,200 members of 11 African American churches in North Carolina, an overwhelming majority of congregants said they believe that the church has a responsibility to promote healthy living within the community they serve. Many of us who’ve grown up in the church understand its historical context, and know that churches have traditionally functioned beyond spiritual guidance and social support. Surprisingly to some, many African-Americans still believe their church is responsible for promoting health in their members and the community. But what may be more surprising is how those congregants say they’d like to receive those messages about their health — by way of interactive workshops and health fairs instead of from the pulpit. I have often been critical of health promotion efforts which seek to reach the black community through churches, because while churches are important part of black culture, public health researchers often overestimate the role of the pastor, alone, as the sole mechanism for crafting and presenting health information. Presumably, health ministry members are more knowledgeable than most pastors whenread more

As DWT posted a few weeks ago, it's almost nostril-pinching time for some.

Beto, as many of you know, is on Colbert tonight.  Panties and money will be thrown.

As I mentioned last week, he will have enough caysh to win.  Lack of name recognition should be no excuse for his losing, either.  That leaves only one thing: Latin@ turnoutSeveral media outlets have already mentioned it as key to Bob's victory, so I'll just refer you to Stace, who -- as referenced in Monday's Wrangle -- seems to be using the recent NALEO poll for excusing low turnout well in advance of the election.  Let's hope I'm just misunderstanding him, but ...

... frankly, if Trump and ICE and separating children from their parents and holding kids in cages, and policies like this, and Democrats like Lupe Valdez and Sylvia Garcia and Veronica Escobar and Lina Hidalgo and Adrian Garcia and a shit-ton of others on the ballot aren't enough to motivate turnout, then maybe turnout is impervious to motivation.  Exactly how much fucking worse must it get for La Raza in this country before they do something about it?

If I remember history rightly, black people have been tortured, murdered, lynched, dragged, burned, and hanged just for trying to vote.  And then they were poll-taxed.  And they're still pretty well kept from voting by any means Republicans deem necessary to this day.  Maybe I have a blind spot, but I just don't recall Latinxs having to put up with as much bullshit through the years as that.

If Latin@s (and maybe this should be read as 'Mexicans') are waiting for their engraved invitation to a banquet where all of their wishes, hopes, and dreams will be granted ahead of their citizen participation in selecting our leaders ... then somebody needs to take them aside and explain that politics doesn't work that way.

Power concedes nothing without a demand, said Frederick Douglass.  And the way that looks, hermanos y hermanas, is: first you show up, then you demand.  Your demand correspondingly includes withholding your future support if your prior demands are not met.  Maybe try something different besides doing nothing this year, see what happens.

On the bright side for Beto, my shero Sema is on board.


She's made a pragmatic political calculation here, to Gadfly's irritation.  She plans on challenging Cornyn in 2020, and there's simply no way that her harsh criticisms of the Democratic Party establishment -- published as an op-ed in the Chronic in late July-- would be forgiven if she did what I'm doing and went "bah-fungoo" at O'Rourke.

I'm gonna cut her some slack.  Part of this is inherently being DSA; if you're running on their ballot line, you're inside their party.  You are expected to fall in line in November.  She may have simply given in to Beto's most obvious charm: his empathy.  He listens well.

Let's also be clear that Poop Cruz, whoever it is Tweeting for him, his comms team generally, and the Texas GOP at large are the gifts that keep on giving to O'Rourke.  They are doing everything they possibly can to lose this race for the Zodiac Killer.  Beto has also been blessed with the most favorable media coverage ever.  For the life of me I cannot understand how he dances through these continuously blooming meadows of lilies, gilded and not.


There's no reason he should get special recognition for this.  He's already sworn off corporate money and PAC money (allegedly), right?  I find plaudits from McKibben here the equivalent of whooping for a 7-year old who successfully completes his first unattended poop, or a 14-year old who has managed to tie both his shoelaces.  It's very typical of the Congressman's national media coverage.  Read all of this, with the excerpt being the last sentence.

If O’Rourke really does have a chance to win this November, then he’s going to have to prove to be the political rock star all those profiles keep making him out to be. 

No Beto for me, but Mrs. Diddie will give him a vote.  Same for Elizabeth Fletcher (why does a corporate attorney go by such a childish, childhood name?), whom I find charisma-impaired on top of her more recent Labor Day hypocrisy.


Wasn't exactly her firm's position in 2016.  (Your vehement protests against personal characterization as a janitors' union buster have been duly noted, Lizzie.)

Her vanquished primary opponent, Laura Moser, has been graceful and hard-working in support of Ds of all stripes since March.  Both Sema and Laura are just better Democrats than me. 

While Moser would be more accurately called a Berniecrat and Sema DSA, I personally am more of a hybrid when you consider my affinity for the Greens, or any independent candidate running to the left of the Donks.  I like DSA and their inside strategy, but I'm also more than willing to part company when certain right-leaning Democrats -- Henry Cuellar, anyone?  Bueller?  -- fall too far outside tolerance limits, as they do for me with Beto and Lizzie.  YMMV, and this is not what the vast majority of Texas Democrats are accustomed to doing, as we all know.

I have a few more Dems I won't be voting for, and a list of those that I will, which may surprise some of you reading this far.  I'll try to get that posted before the weekend.

          Verizon Rolls Out 5G to Select Cities      Cache   Translate Page      
Verizon recently announced the world's first commercial 5G service. "Verizon 5G Home" will roll out in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento on October 1, with pre orders starting tomorrow. Verizon says the service will be free for the first 3 months, and cost $50 a month for existing Verizon customers. The company says users should expect speeds of "around 300 Mbps and, depending on location, peak speeds of nearly 1 Gig, with no data caps." Further advancing 5G, the company isn't waiting for the most recent technical standards to deliver 5G Home, pushing ahead with its own proprietary 5G standard in this initial commercial launch. "To be first, we encouraged others in the ecosystem to move more quickly at every step," said Vestberg. "We appreciate the partnership of network equipment makers, device manufacturers, software developers and chip makers in reaching this critical milestone. The entire wireless industry gets to celebrate." Discussion

I am the chairman of our church's Pumpkin Patch. For the past 20 years we were able to get free wooden pallets (about 200) to use for displaying the pumpkins in the church's front yard. That company has changed management and is no longer able to supply the pallets. I need about 200. Any ideas? I live in Clear Lake City part of Houston, Texas.

          Hurricane Hell: Here Are 5 of the Most Recent Devastating Storms Linked to Climate Change      Cache   Translate Page      
The new normal is frightening.

Only two weeks after the government of Puerto Rico raised the official death toll from Hurricane Maria from 64 to 2,975—making it the deadliest hurricane to occur last year—North and South Carolina residents are evacuating coastal areas in preparation for Hurricane Florence, which is expected to deliver winds of 130 miles per hour and be the worst hurricane to hit the Carolinas since the 1980s. Hurricanes have been pounding the southeastern U.S. for centuries, but in the era of climate change, they are becoming more frequent and more devastating.

Meteorologists are seeing an increase in the what is known as “rapid intensification,” meaning that a storm’s maximum sustained winds increase by at least 35 mph within a 24-hour period. According to data from the National Hurricane Center, there were, on average, ten cases of rapid intensification per year between 1982 and 1994—whereas between 2005 and 2017, 20 cases per year was the average. In 2017, the National Hurricane Center reported 40 cases of rapid intensification.

Meteorologists have five separate categories for hurricanes, with Category 1 being the least severe and Category 5 being the most severe. Florence appears to be reaching the Carolinas as a Category 4, but it could intensify to Category 5. And when rapid intensification—a phenomenon encouraged by climate change—occurs and a hurricane goes from Category 1 to Category 4 or 5 in less than 24 hours, there is little time to prepare.  

Here are five of the most devastating hurricanes that occurred in recent years.

1. Hurricane Katrina

In August 2015, Hurricane Katrina originated in the Bahamas before making its way to the U.S. A hurricane varies in intensity, and at its worst, Katrina became a Category 5 storm. The National Hurricane Center attributed a total of 1836 deaths to Katrina, with up to 1577 deaths in Louisiana—and the flooding was so severe in New Orleans that 80% of the city was under water.

Veteran reporter Mark Schleifstein, who covered Katrina for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, witnessed Katrina first hand and has some grim advice for residents of the Carolinas who are refusing to evacuate for Hurricane Florence: “write your Social Security number on your arm, so officials can identify your body.”

2. Hurricane Harvey

2017 was a terrible year for hurricanes, and one of the worst was Hurricane Harvey—which affected parts of Latin America (including Nicaragua and Honduras) but was especially devastating around the Texas Gulf Coast. Of the 108 deaths caused by Harvey in late August/early September 2017, 103 were in Texas. Some weather stations in Texas reported more than four feet of rain, and Houston suffered some of the worst flooding in the city’s history. 

3. Hurricane Maria

Only a few weeks after Hurricane Harvey ravaged the Texas Gulf Coast, the Caribbean was, in September 2017, pounded by Hurricane Maria—which reached Category 5 at its worst. Maria caused some deaths in the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Guadalupe, but the worst damage by far occurred in Puerto Rico. Of the more than 3,050 people killed by Maria, most of the fatalities occurred in Puerto Rico—although 65 people were killed on the island of Dominica, which didn’t have time to adequately prepare thanks to rapid intensification. A year later, Puerto Rico is still recovering from Maria.

Maria is a perfect example of how bad climate change is making rapid intensification: the storm went from Category 1 to Category 5 in only about half a day.

4. Hurricane Sandy

In the U.S., hurricanes have been most likely to affect the southern states.

Floridians are more likely to experience hurricanes than residents of New Jersey or Massachusetts, but that doesn’t mean that residents of the northeastern U.S. are immune to them—not by a longshot. And in 2012, Hurricane Sandy caused billions of dollars in damage, pounding the New Jersey Shore and the coast of Maryland as well as New York City. Atlantic City was evacuated, parts of Manhattan suffered flooding, and the mass transit systems of NYC and Philadelphia (which is about 60 miles inland) were shut down.

When Kevin E. Trenberth (a senior climatologist for the National Center for Atmospheric Research) was asked whether or not Hurricane Sandy was affected by climate change, he responded that while the answer was yes, Sandy was hardly unique in that regard. In 2012, Trenberth asserted, “All weather events are affected by climate change because the environment in which they occur is warmer and moister than it used to be.”

5. Hurricane Ike

In September 2008, Hurricane Ike caused at least 195 deaths and affected a wide area ranging from Cuba, Haiti (where at least 74 deaths occurred) and the Bahamas to the Florida Panhandle, the Mississippi Coast and the Texas Gulf Coast. Altogether, Ike is believed to have caused about $38 billion in damage.

          A “BLUE” TEXAS: Republicans’ Worst Fears Could Come True in November      Cache   Translate Page      

In 2002, Republicans took control of the Texas House of Representatives – breaking a 130-year string of Democratic dominance on the state. After taking control of the Texas House of Representatives, the first thing newly elected Texas Republicans did was engage in a major partisan redistricting effort that completely changed the course of Texas politics. As a result, Republicans gained six seats during the 2004 elections, which led to them having the majority in the Texas House for the first time since Reconstruction. As of 2018, Texas Republicans still control the House and Senate in Texas, as well as control of all the statewide offices. This has had an impact on federal elections also, in that Republicans have continued to have a stronghold on winning important U.S. Congressional and Senate races. Texas has also been a consistent and reliable state when it comes to the Republican nominee for president. Not since 1976, when Jimmy Carter defeated Republican Gerald Ford, has a Democratic candidate for president carried the state. There has been a lot of chatter over the past several months about whether Republicans may be losing their grip on Texas as a reliable “red state” and there are several candidates in Texas that have many Republicans worried. So could Texas really be in play for Democrats this November? Based on a recent letter sent to his supporters, 17-year incumbent U.S. Congressman John Culberson (R-TX) seems to think so. Rep. Culberson is in a dogfight here in Texas, against his Democratic opponent, attorney Lizzie Pannill Fletcher,read more

Despite South Carolina issuing an evacuation order for all coastal counties ahead of category-3 hurricane Florence, the state corrections department decided Monday that it would not transfer 934 prisoners and as many as 119 staff in one prison.

Although Governor Henry McMaster lifted the evacuation order for three counties, including Jasper where the facility Ridgeland is located, these counties are still deemed evacuation zones by South Carolina Emergency Management Division.

Past history suggests this might prove disastrous. In Miami-Dade County, Florida, officials left nearly 4,500 prisoners inside facilities during Hurricane Irma in 2017, even though multiple prison facilities in that county were demolished by Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Prisoners who outlasted Hurricane Irma described cells covered in mold, urine, and feces, and prison guards spoke out about the horrors of conditions. When Hurricane Harvey hit Texas last year, prisoners experienced flooding and lacked enough drinking water and medicines.

After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Human Rights Watch documented the nightmare nearly 600 prisoners endured in the Orleans Parish Prison compound. They told us officers chose to save themselves, while many prisoners were not evacuated for four days. Letters from prisoners detail how they were “left to die” with no food, water (except from toilets), lights or medical attention, amid chest-high contaminated water and broken gas lines. Evacuated prisoners transferred to Jena Correctional Facility were beaten and abused by officers, with some forced to lie in their own vomit.

Prisoners across 17 states, including South Carolina, concluded a two-week strike from August 21 to September 9, 2018 to pressure the country’s penal system for reform to produce “conditions of prisons and prison policies that recognize the humanity of imprisoned men and women.” Overcrowded facilities, unsafe and unsanitary environments, substandard nutrition and substandard medical care already pose a grave risk to prisoner health and safety. A hurricane will only exacerbate those risks.

State and local authorities should either evacuate prisoners from facilities in the path of the storm or explain publicly and convincingly why they are certain is safe not to. They should also know that they will be held accountable if they gamble with the safety of prisoners only to repeat the mistakes and abuses of the past.

Currently at The Weather Channel: “Hurricane Florence will hammer the Carolinas and other parts of the Southeast for several days. While impacts from wind will be destructive, Florence's rainfall is likely to trigger catastrophic flooding in some areas, and will flirt with all-time state rainfall totals from tropical cyclones.” From Wikipedia: “Hurricane Harvey of 2017 is the second costliest tropical cyclone in United States history … The hurricane inflicted $125 billion in damage, primarily from catastrophic rainfall-triggered flooding in the Houston metropolitan area. …. In a four-day period, many areas received more than 40 inches (1,000 mm) of rain as the system slowly meandered over eastern Texas and adjacent waters, causing unprecedented flooding. One can’t help noticing similarity in the way these storms linger over affected areas. Rainfall totals are also remarkable. Is there a trend? Is it scientifically traceable to more humidity, more evaporation, slower jet streams, etc.?

          Hurricane Hell: Here Are 5 of the Most Recent Devastating Storms Linked to Climate Change      Cache   Translate Page      
The new normal is frightening.

Only two weeks after the government of Puerto Rico raised the official death toll from Hurricane Maria from 64 to 2,975—making it the deadliest hurricane to occur last year—North and South Carolina residents are evacuating coastal areas in preparation for Hurricane Florence, which is expected to deliver winds of 130 miles per hour and be the worst hurricane to hit the Carolinas since the 1980s. Hurricanes have been pounding the southeastern U.S. for centuries, but in the era of climate change, they are becoming more frequent and more devastating.

Meteorologists are seeing an increase in the what is known as “rapid intensification,” meaning that a storm’s maximum sustained winds increase by at least 35 mph within a 24-hour period. According to data from the National Hurricane Center, there were, on average, ten cases of rapid intensification per year between 1982 and 1994—whereas between 2005 and 2017, 20 cases per year was the average. In 2017, the National Hurricane Center reported 40 cases of rapid intensification.

Meteorologists have five separate categories for hurricanes, with Category 1 being the least severe and Category 5 being the most severe. Florence appears to be reaching the Carolinas as a Category 4, but it could intensify to Category 5. And when rapid intensification—a phenomenon encouraged by climate change—occurs and a hurricane goes from Category 1 to Category 4 or 5 in less than 24 hours, there is little time to prepare.  

Here are five of the most devastating hurricanes that occurred in recent years.

1. Hurricane Katrina

In August 2015, Hurricane Katrina originated in the Bahamas before making its way to the U.S. A hurricane varies in intensity, and at its worst, Katrina became a Category 5 storm. The National Hurricane Center attributed a total of 1836 deaths to Katrina, with up to 1577 deaths in Louisiana—and the flooding was so severe in New Orleans that 80% of the city was under water.

Veteran reporter Mark Schleifstein, who covered Katrina for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, witnessed Katrina first hand and has some grim advice for residents of the Carolinas who are refusing to evacuate for Hurricane Florence: “write your Social Security number on your arm, so officials can identify your body.”

2. Hurricane Harvey

2017 was a terrible year for hurricanes, and one of the worst was Hurricane Harvey—which affected parts of Latin America (including Nicaragua and Honduras) but was especially devastating around the Texas Gulf Coast. Of the 108 deaths caused by Harvey in late August/early September 2017, 103 were in Texas. Some weather stations in Texas reported more than four feet of rain, and Houston suffered some of the worst flooding in the city’s history. 

3. Hurricane Maria

Only a few weeks after Hurricane Harvey ravaged the Texas Gulf Coast, the Caribbean was, in September 2017, pounded by Hurricane Maria—which reached Category 5 at its worst. Maria caused some deaths in the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Guadalupe, but the worst damage by far occurred in Puerto Rico. Of the more than 3,050 people killed by Maria, most of the fatalities occurred in Puerto Rico—although 65 people were killed on the island of Dominica, which didn’t have time to adequately prepare thanks to rapid intensification. A year later, Puerto Rico is still recovering from Maria.

Maria is a perfect example of how bad climate change is making rapid intensification: the storm went from Category 1 to Category 5 in only about half a day.

4. Hurricane Sandy

In the U.S., hurricanes have been most likely to affect the southern states.

Floridians are more likely to experience hurricanes than residents of New Jersey or Massachusetts, but that doesn’t mean that residents of the northeastern U.S. are immune to them—not by a longshot. And in 2012, Hurricane Sandy caused billions of dollars in damage, pounding the New Jersey Shore and the coast of Maryland as well as New York City. Atlantic City was evacuated, parts of Manhattan suffered flooding, and the mass transit systems of NYC and Philadelphia (which is about 60 miles inland) were shut down.

When Kevin E. Trenberth (a senior climatologist for the National Center for Atmospheric Research) was asked whether or not Hurricane Sandy was affected by climate change, he responded that while the answer was yes, Sandy was hardly unique in that regard. In 2012, Trenberth asserted, “All weather events are affected by climate change because the environment in which they occur is warmer and moister than it used to be.”

5. Hurricane Ike

In September 2008, Hurricane Ike caused at least 195 deaths and affected a wide area ranging from Cuba, Haiti (where at least 74 deaths occurred) and the Bahamas to the Florida Panhandle, the Mississippi Coast and the Texas Gulf Coast. Altogether, Ike is believed to have caused about $38 billion in damage.

They have a new quarterback and a new middle linebacker. They've released veterans Tevin Coleman Jersey (http://www.falconscheapstore.com/tevin-coleman-jersey-cheap) , traded away one of the top cornerbacks in the league, signed wisely in free agency and loaded up on draft picks. Sounds like a losing franchise trying to turn things around. Try the two-time and defending AFC West champion Kansas City Chiefs. The slew of offseason moves began even before free agency, when the Chiefs agreed to trades that sent quarterback Alex Smith to the Redskins and cornerback Marcus Peters to the Rams. But the pace of the dealing has hardly slowed down as the Chiefs remake an aging and expensive roster that was good enough to reach the playoffs last season but not good enough to beat Tennessee in the wild-card round. That's why they signed wide receiver Sammy Watkins, cornerback David Amerson and middle linebacker Anthony Hitchens, and landed cornerback Kendall Fuller in the trade with Washington. "We're not trying to win a Super Bowl four years from now. We're going out there and we're trying to win a Super Bowl next year," Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said. "Whether that happens, I don't know, but I know that we're going to do everything we can to put our team in position to do so." Many teams coming off back-to-back division titles would try to hold on a little longer. And the result would be a slow regression that would ultimately force the team to begin a complete rebuilding job anyway. Veach, who took over for John Dorsey last summer, took a refreshingly different tack. He went after the trade market, was decisive in his convictions and landed his biggest priorities P. J. Williams Jersey (http://www.saintscheapstore.com/p.-j.-williams-jersey-cheap) , even if he may have had to pay a premium to get Watkins and Hitchens in the door. It was a sign the candid, confident Veach is going to be a far different GM than his predecessors in Kansas City. "If we have shortcomings," Veach said, "we'll continue to work on those things. Our mindset is at every period to get our team in a position to win a Super Bowl. We have a lot of talent here. It's a lot of young talent, which is exciting for the fans, but we realize there may be some growing pains. But we have some guys that can straight up play football, and that's exciting." There is no doubt an abundance of talent, especially on offense. Patrick Mahomes II is poised to take over for Smith under center, and he showed flashes of his big arm and gamesmanship in a Week 17 victory over Denver. To ease the transition, the Chiefs added Watkins to what is arguably the best set of skill-position players in the division, headlined by NFL rushing king Kareem Hunt Nick Easton Jersey (http://www.vikingscheapstore.com ick-easton-jersey-cheap) , Pro Bowl tight end Travis Kelce and speedy wide receiver Tyreek Hill. They also retained one of their own when they brought back bruising fullback Anthony Sherman. "As a team, we've won a lot of games in the last few years," Mahomes said, "and we're bringing a lot of those guys back. And with the additions that we have added, I feel like we can have a very, very good offense. It's all going to start with how we prepare, especially at my position." Yes, the Chiefs expected to have a very good offense, just as they did last season. But one of the big challenges this offseason has been to fix a defense that ranked among the worst in the league. Hitchens was a good first step, and he'll step in to the void created by the release of the aging Derrick Johnson, the franchise's career tackles leader. Amerson and Fuller will help to cover the trade of Peters Davon House Jersey (http://www.packerscheapstore.com/davon-house-jersey-cheap) , and the draft picks netted this offseason will almost certainly be used on defense. Still, the question remains: Is that enough to make an appreciable improvement? "We've got a great nucleus coming back. We've added some players that are top-notch," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said last week. "We're fired up about this whole thing. I'm not great at standing up and going, 'Hey, here we go!' But I'm ready to roll as we're sitting here in March." 68. HOUSTON TEXANS (4-12) LAST SEASON: Texans won AFC South in past two seasons before failing to make postseason in 2017 as they dealt with numerous injuries, including to rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson and superstar defensive end J.J. Watt. Best news of dreadful season was play of Watson in seven games before he tore anterior cruciate ligament in right knee in practice. He threw for 1,699 yards and 19 touchdowns, giving Texans hope they've finally found franchise quarterback after years of misfires and disappointment. Another bright spot was continued improvement of 2014 top overall pick Jadeveon Clowney. Defensive end finished second in NFL with career-high 21 tackles for losses and his 9 1/2 sacks, 21 quarterback hits and two forced fumbles were also career bests. He had career-high 59 tackles and started all 16 games for first time in career after struggling with injuries in first two NFL seasons before playing 14 games in 2016. THEY NEED: LT, RT, TE. THEY DON'T NEED: QB Trey Flowers Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/trey-flowers-jersey-cheap) , WR, DE. POSSIBLE FIRST PICK: T Jamarco Jones, Ohio State; T Tyrell Crosby, Oregon; TE Durham Smythe, Notre Dame. OUTLOOK: Texans desperately need to upgrade offensive line to better protect Watson after trading franchise left tackle Duane Brown to Seattle last season. But it will be tough in draft because they don't have pick until third round. Houston sent first-round pick in this year's draft to Cleveland last year to trade up to get Watson, and previously shipped second-round pick in 2018 to Browns as part of deal to get rid of Brock Osweiler. That leaves new general manager Brian Gaine, taking over after Rick Smith took leave of absence to care for ailing wife, with eight picks in Rounds 3-7 seven to try and find some pieces to upgrade team looking to bounce back after last year's nosedive.

Adrian Peterson trains in Houston during the offseason Marshawn Lynch Jersey (http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/marshawn-lynch-jersey-cheap) , even opening a megagym in his adopted hometown a couple of years ago. So it’s no surprise the star running back would love to play his 12th season in Houston. Peterson, 33, mentioned the Texans and four other teams as possible fits in a recent appearance on ESPN’s NFL Live. “You know obviously I’ve mentioned Houston a couple of times,” Peterson said. “I feel like Green Bay wouldn’t be a bad look as well. Carolina. There’s some options out there. You know Miami. Down there in [Los Angeles]. That would be a nice look, too, with Todd Gurley. You see around the league they have a two-back system. Guys are not really not pounding the ball 20, 30 times a game, so I think that leaves the door open for a couple of opportunities for me.” Peterson also recently said he would be open to a return to New Orleans. Peterson has posted his workout videos, hoping teams take notice. In truth Durham Smythe Jersey (http://www.dolphinscheapstore.com/durham-smythe-jersey-cheap) , Peterson likely would have interest in any team that shows interest in him. Drew Brees passed for 376 yards and two touchdowns, and the New Orleans Saints held off Carolina’s late comeback bid to seal a 31-26 victory in their NFC wild-card game on Sunday. The Panthers had a first down on the Saints 26-yard line with 58 seconds left, but heavy pressure by All-Pro defensive end Cameron Jordan a couple plays later induced an intentional grounding penalty on Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, making it third-and-25 on the Saints 34 and a required 10-second runoff left 22 seconds on the clock. After an incompletion in the end zone on third down, Vonn Bell sacked Newton on a safety blitz, ensuring the Saints (12-5) swept all three meetings with Carolina (11-6) this season, in addition to winning their first playoff game in four seasons. Brees’ touchdowns went for 80-yards to Ted Ginn and 9 yards to tight end Josh Hill. Fullback Zach line and running back Alvin Kamara each ran for short touchdowns. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Blake Bortles put together one decent drive all day, doing as much with his legs as his arm Malcolm Mitchell Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/malcolm-mitchell-jersey-cheap) , and the defensive-minded Jacksonville Jaguars eked out an ugly and sometimes unwatchable 10-3 victory against the Buffalo Bills in an AFC wild-card game Sunday. In the postseason for the first time since January 2008, the third-seeded Jaguars (11-6) advanced to play at No. 2 seed Pittsburgh next week. The sixth-seeded Bills (9-8) will head home after ending the longest, current playoff drought in North American professional sports. Bortles was a big reason Jacksonville won the game and a big reason it was so close. This was far from a passing clinic. It was more like a painful exercise in overcoming poor passing. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Marcus Mariota led Tennessee to three second-half touchdowns, incredibly throwing one of his TD passes to himself , and the Titans rallied from a 21-3 deficit to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 22-21 on Saturday for their first playoff win in 14 years. Mariota threw for 205 yards and two scores, including the 22-yard go-ahead strike to Eric Decker with just over six minutes left that ushered the Titans into the divisional round of the playoffs. They’ll head to New England or Pittsburgh next week. Derrick Henry had a career-high 156 yards rushing and another score for Tennessee (10-7), while a defense that was fileted by Alex Smith and the Chiefs (10-7) during the first half pitched a shutout in the second half – dooming the Kansas City franchise to another humiliating postseason defeat. LOS ANGELES (AP) – Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons showed the upstart Los Angeles Rams what playoff poise is all about. Ryan passed for 218 yards and hit Julio Jones for an 8-yard touchdown with 5:48 to play, and the defending NFC champion Falcons advanced from the wild-card round with a methodical 26-13 victory over the Rams on Saturday night. Devonta Freeman rushed for an early score and Matt Bryant kicked four field goals for the Falcons (11-6) Brandon Coleman Jersey (http://www.saintscheapstore.com/brandon-coleman-jersey-cheap) , who spoiled the Rams’ first playoff game in 13 years while showing off the postseason poise they earned from last season’s journey to the Super Bowl. Atlanta never trailed at the Coliseum while winning playoff games in consecutive seasons for the first time in franchise history. The Falcons advanced to face the top-seeded Eagles on Saturday in Philadelphia. NBA LOS ANGELES (AP) – Brandon Ingram had 20 points and seven assists, and the Los Angeles Lakers snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 132-113 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night. Julius Randle had 15 points and nine rebounds in this sixth straight start, while Lonzo Ball finished with 13 points, 10 assists and six rebounds. Los Angeles led by as many as 26 points – its biggest margin this season – and enjoyed a strong shooting night. The Lakers made 55.8 percent of their field goals, and shot 44.4 percent from 3-point range. Even free throws went in for the Lakers, who came into Sunday as the worst team in the league in that category. Los Angeles made 20 of 25. COLLEGE BASKETBALL COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Keita Bates-Diop scored a career-high 32 points, and Ohio State stunned No. 1 Michigan State 80-64 on Sunday. The overachieving Buckeyes put together an electrifying 12-0 run to finish the first half and kept their foot on the gas to give first-year coach Chris Holtmann a signature win. Ohio State (13-4, 4-0 Big Ten) won for its third straight in taking down the best team it is likely to see this season. The mistake-prone Spartans (15-2 Art Shell Jersey (http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/art-shell-jersey-cheap) , 3-1) lost for the first time in the last 15 games, dating back to a seven-point loss to then-No. 1 Duke on Nov. 14. GOLF KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) – A new year brought out the best in Dustin Johnson, who powered his way to an 8-under 65 and an eight-shot victory in the Sentry Tournament of Champions. In a field that featured the top five players in the world, Johnson made a strong opening statement that a No. 1 ranking he has held for nearly a year might be difficult to take away. Johnson stretched a two-shot lead to six shots at the turn, then delivered the biggest moment of the week with a drive on the par-4 12th hole that stopped 6 inches from the cup for a tap-in eagle. He also drove the par-4 14th hole. He finished at 24-under 268. The eight-shot margin of victory was his largest ever, and it was one short of the tournament record set by David Duval since this event moved to Kapalua in 1999. Jordan Spieth also won by eight shots in 2016. Football Jerseys Wholesale (http://www.officialusafootballs.com)

          SoxProspects.com Awards: Homegrown Player, Ex-Prospect, and Graduate and of the Year      Cache   Translate Page      
SoxProspects.com award season continues after All-Star hitters were announced on Monday and were followed by All-Star pitchers on Tuesday. Today we cover three of the more widely known award winners, all of whom have graduated from their status as prospects.


Homegrown Player of the Year
Part of the reason the Red Sox farm system is not as elite as in past years is because so many players have recently been traded or graduated. In another year, outstanding performances from Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts or outfielder Andrew Benintendi might have put them in the running for this award with their impressive 2018 performances. However, Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts (pictured, left) is not just the SoxProspects.com Homegrown Player of the Year this season, he is the best position player in all of baseball. 

His 2018 season did not come out of nowhere. Entering 2018, Betts was a career .292/.351/.488 hitter with two All-Star appearances and finishes in the top-20 in MVP voting each of the last three seasons. This season, Betts took what was an already impressive track record to the next level and, as of September 11th, he is hitting .342 (best in baseball) with a .433 OBP (second in baseball) and .633 slugging (second in baseball) with 42 doubles, 29 home runs, 116 runs, 71 RBI, and 27 stolen bases. 

It is not just his offense though - he is regarded as one of the best baserunners in baseball, and he continues to produce highlight-reel plays in the field. Defense is especially important for a right fielder for the Red Sox as Fenway Park boasts one of the largest and most difficult to play right fields in baseball. Even the advanced statistics cannot deny Betts' greatness this season with him leading all of baseball in positional player WAR according to both FanGraphs and Baseball Reference. That unrivaled five-tool production is why Mookie Betts was an easy choice for the SoxProspects.com Homegrown Player of the Year.

Ex-Prospect of the Year
After being selected by the Red Sox with the 45th pick in the 2005 MLB Draft, second baseman Jed  Lowrie (pictured, right) spent two and a half years in the Red Sox minor league system before making his Major League debut in 2008. During his time in the minors, he slowly began to elevate his stock, peaking at three on the SoxProspects.com rankings in mid-2008 and even won the Red Sox Minor League Offensive Player of the Year in 2007. In his Red Sox career, he was never able to achieve that same type of success, hitting .252/.324/.408 in 256 games over parts of four seasons before being traded to the Houston Astros as part of the deal for reliever Mark Melancon.

Now in his second stint with the Oakland Athletics, Lowrie is finally realizing some of the potential he showed as a prospect. Going into Tuesday night's game, the 34-year-old is hitting .274/.359/.464 with career highs in home runs (21) and RBI (89). He also made his first All-Star team after hitting .285 with 16 home runs over the first half. It's never too late to have a career year.

Graduate of the Year

Brian Johnson (pictured, left) has had his share of ups and downs in the six years since he was a first-round pick in 2012. Johnson entered a loaded system after being drafted and was ranked 13th on the SoxProspects.com rankings to end the year, relatively low for a first-round pick. However, he was behind the likes of current Red Sox Xander Bogaerts, Matt Barnes, Jackie Bradley, Blake Swihart, and Brandon Workman. Dominating the minors never seemed to be a problem for the big lefty. Over his career, Johnson has cumulative ERAs below 3.20 at each level with a career 2.69 minor league ERA and 1.13 minor league WHIP. His most dominant year came in 2014 where he had a 2.13 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, 132 strikeouts and 39 walks over 143 2/3 innings split between High-A and Double-A, ultimately winning the Red Sox Minor League Pitcher of the Year award.

Despite the early success, after making his debut in 2015 he has seen his share of struggles. One major hurdle was when he took time away from the game in 2016 to get treatment for anxiety. Despite it being three seasons since he debuted, he entered 2018 having not exhausted his SoxProspects.com eligibility, throwing only 31 1/3 innings with a 4.88 ERA. He has almost tripled that total this year, with 88 2/3 innings through Monday split between starting and relief. The results have not been completely dominant (4.36 ERA and 1.47 WHIP), but he has been willing to take the ball whenever needed, an important quality on a team that has seen its fair share of pitching injuries. He has always been a very smart player who is willing to give his all everytime out and has proven to be a nice asset in 2018 for the team with the best record in baseball.

          Texas priest arrested for alleged child sex abuse      Cache   Translate Page      

Houston, Texas, Sep 12, 2018 / 05:59 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- A priest of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston was arrested Tuesday in connection with allegations that he sexually abused at least two children decades ago.

Police in Conroe, Texas have reported that the priest has been charged with four counts of indecency to children. While stationed at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Conroe, Father Manuel La Rosa-Lopez was accused in 2001 of kissing and  inappropriately touching a 16 year-old girl.

The priest was permitted to return to ministry after the allegation was reviewed by the Texas authorities and the archdiocesan review board in 2003, which allowed the priest to return to ministry in 2004. Reportedly, the women moved back in 2010 and saw that the priest had been transferred to St. John Fisher parish in Richmond, Texas.

After contacting the archdiocese, the woman was referred to counseling services and briefly met with Father La Rosa-Lopez, who offered his apologies, according to Click 2 Houston.  

A 36 year-old man presented a case of sexual abuse Aug. 10. The man said he had been sexually abused from 1998-200, also at Sacred Heart parish.

In a Sept. 12 statement, the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston said it immediately presented this case to Children’s Protective Services. The archdiocese also said that the priest has denied these allegations.

“We take these matters very seriously, which is why we reported the information we received from both individuals to CPS – and removed Father La Rosa-Lopez from ministry.”

An arrest warrant was issued for the priest by the district attorney of Montgomery County Sept. 11. Father La Rosa-Lopez turned himself in to the police that evening.

The archdiocese has not commented on the timing of Father La Rosa-Lopez’s removal from the parish.

However, archdiocese upheld its strong commitment to the protection of children and expressed its apologies to any victims who have been injured by sexual abuse.

“The Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston recognizes it clearly has both a legal and a moral obligation to address any incidence of abuse – sexual or otherwise – to God’s children. Such behavior simply will not be tolerated.”

“To anyone affected by any form of abuse by anyone who represents the Church, the Archdiocese deeply regrets such a fundamental violation of trust, and commits itself to eliminating such unacceptable actions.”

The Archbishop of Galveston-Houston, Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, is president of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Together with several other USCCB officials, Cardinal DiNardo is meeting with Pope Francis Sept. 13 to discuss the clerical sexual abuse crisis that has roiled the Church in the US for several months.

Incoming!

by Tom Sullivan

Seventeen years ago today, thousands died in a terrorist disaster neither average citizens nor government officials charged with protecting them saw coming. On this September 11, a million and a half Americans facing a natural disaster are evacuating the Carolina and Virginia coasts.

Thanks to the National Hurricane Center, the National Weather Service, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration satellites, citizens have had days of warning. Your tax dollars at work. Which means, of course, somewhere in an office at a conservative think tank, some theorist is wondering why we don't privatize the lot and make people pay for warnings that could save their lives. Government shouldn't be distorting the market.

Hurricane Florence will likely be the most powerful storm ever to hit this far north on the east coast:

“We do know we’re in the bull’s eye. We’re using this time to get together all the people we need, the equipment that we need, locating our strategic resources,” North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper (D) said Monday. Local authorities have ordered the evacuation of more than 250,000 residents and tourists from coastal islands and beach towns, where authorities expect a storm surge of at least 10 feet.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) on Monday evening ordered the evacuation of roughly a quarter of a million people from sections of the Eastern Shore, Virginia Beach, Hampton, Norfolk and the Middle Peninsula starting Tuesday morning. Northam also activated the state’s entire National Guard to provide help and requested 21 swift-water rescue teams from other states.
That storm surge will be exacerbated by the shallowness of the sea floor, Axios adds:
The Carolinas are uniquely vulnerable to storm surge flooding because the continental shelf extends far offshore, by about 50 miles, which creates a large shallow area that enables a storm to build up water to great heights. (Other hurricane-prone areas, like southern Florida, have a steeper slope offshore, and typically see lower surge amounts.)
As bad as the coastal effects could be, The Daily Beast reports damage from Florence could be devastating far inland:
Meteorologists fear that Hurricane Harvey-style rainfall could deluge the Carolinas causing massive freshwater flooding reminiscent of the devastation in Texas last year, which killed 68 people and caused $125 billion in damage.

Florence, which may have strengthened to near Category 5 strength, is expected to make a direct hit in the northernmost part of South Carolina or North Carolina. Rather than continuing to churn north along the coast, the hurricane is expected to strike the coast head-on and move inland, allowing it to dump vast quantities of water—perhaps more than 30 inches in places—as it slows down.

The U.S. Navy ordered almost 30 ships in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia to put to sea to avoid the storm.

Just weeks ago, researchers at the George Washington University's (GWU) Milken School of Public Health estimated the number of Americans in Puerto Rico who died last year from the effects of Hurricane Maria at 2,975. That event now exceeds the death toll from the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York. Hurricane Katrina claimed more than 1,800 lives in 2005. San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz tweeted, "The # of deaths 2,975 reinforces the pain inflicted on the people of PR and the violation of our human rights. THEY WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN."

Besieged as he is, one might think the sitting president would enjoy the distraction of responding to hurricane recovery at his doorstep with more than paper towels and photo ops. But as Brian Williams observed last night on "The 11th Hour," the hurricane is "a huge empathy challenge for an empathy challenged president." Pray no one tells Trump those low-country coastal counties are part of "the black belt."

          Pac-12 picks: Winless Arizona, UCLA teams have chance to avenge early results      Cache   Translate Page      

It wouldn’t have been totally unreasonable to think a couple of Pac-12 teams could start the season 0-2. You might have expected those would be the ones coached by Jonathan Smith and Herm Edwards, not by Kevin Sumlin and Chip Kelly.

Arizona and UCLA have faced stiff competition thus far, but both have chances to finally get into the win column this week – one maybe more so than the other. We predict Arizona vs. Southern Utah, UCLA vs. Fresno State and nine other games taking place throughout the Pac-12 Conference this week.

UC Davis at Stanford

No line – Stanford will sit star running back Bryce Love, but it’d be more interesting – and more competitive – if the Cardinal actually loaned him to UC Davis for this game. The pick: Stanford 40, UC Davis 3.

San Jose State at Oregon

Oregon by 41½ - The Ducks have already scored 120 points at Autzen Stadium this year, after games against Bowling Green and Portland State. I like the chances of that number reaching 180 come Saturday night. The pick: Oregon 62, SJSU 10.

New Hampshire at Colorado

No line – New Hampshire, a team that scored 10 points against Colgate and Maine, visits a Colorado team that dropped a combined 78 points on Colorado State and Nebraska. More stat-padding for Steven Montez, Travon McMillian and Laviska Shenault Jr. The pick:

Idaho State at California

No line – A few years ago, Cal took wide receiver Chad Hansen from Idaho State. The Bengals don’t have anyone the Bears would be interested this year, if that gives you some insight into what’ll go down Saturday in Berkeley. The pick: Cal 45, Idaho State 7.

Oregon State at Nevada

Nevada by 3½ – There’s more uncertainty at the quarterback position for Oregon State, so the Beavers may need another big day from running back Jemar Jefferson if they hope to keep pace with a Nevada attack that scored 72 points in its season opener. The pick: Nevada 41, Oregon State 38.

USC at Texas

Texas by 3½ - Part III of Trojans-Longhorns couldn’t be more entertaining than Part I or Part II, could it? Anything seems possible when these two knock heads. The pick: Texas 31, USC 30.

Eastern Washington at Washington State

No line – Maybe Wyoming wasn’t the Cougars’ toughest nonconference challenge after all. Gage Gubrud has some fond memories of Martin Stadium, but how will the Eastern Washington QB operate without Cooper Kupp, Kendrick Bourne and Shaq Hill? The pick: will be in Saturday’s paper.

Washington at Utah

Washington by 6½ - A preview of the Pac-12 championship here in week three? It’s possible, especially after seeing Utah’s top challengers in the South, USC and Arizona, stumble the first two weeks. Both defenses are elite, but the Huskies are more talented and experience on offense. The pick: UW 27, Utah 21.

Arizona State at San Diego State

ASU by 5 – Manny Wilkins and N’Keal Harry are emerging as one of the top quarterback-wide receiver combos in the country and expect to see big numbers from both against a SDSU team that surrendered 226 receiving yards to JJ Arcega-Whiteside a couple weeks ago. The pick: ASU 38, SDSU 28.

Fresno State at UCLA

Fresno State by 1 – Chip Kelly has never started a college season 0-3, but the Bruins have conceded 75 points in two games and now face a Fresno State that’s two weeks removed from hanging 79 on Idaho. Upset special! The pick: Fresno State 34, UCLA 31.

Southern Utah at Arizona

No line – A bottom-dweller from the Big Sky Conference is just what Khalil Tate and Kevin Sumlin needed after early-season losses to BYU and Houston. This one shouldn’t be close. “Shouldn’t.” The pick: Arizona 55, Southern Utah 21.

Theo Lawson picks

Last week: 8-2 straight up, 4-3 against the spread

Overall: 17-5 straight up, 9-9 against the spread

          WINNIPEG -- Teenager Kadeisha Buchanan was a star on both sides of the ball Thursday      Cache   Translate Page      
WINNIPEG -- Teenager Kadeisha Buchanan was a star on both sides of the ball Thursday night as Canada tied the No. DJ Moore Panthers Jersey . 1-ranked U.S. womens soccer team 1-1, thanks to her first goal as a member of the Canadian national team. "The future is bright," said teammate Desiree Scott. "Kadeisha Buchanan, 18-year-old, going toe-to-toe with some of the best strikers in the world and she scores a goal tonight. Unbelievable performance." Buchanan said it was a great experience to score but her work on defence was also key to keeping the Americans in check. "Defence wins games and we tried," she said of the physical way she challenged and often beat U.S. strikers such as veteran Abby Wambach as they rushed the Canadian goal. "Thats part of my element." Coach John Herdman said Canadas young back line did a great job and Buchanan has what it takes to be the best in the world at her position. "Shes the (Christine) Sinclair of defenders, shes that good" he said, referring to Canadas top forward. Buchanan scored her goal with a header off a corner kick just before the 35-minute mark of the friendly, and for 40 minutes it looked like Canada might finally beat a team they last defeated in 2001. The 18-year-old Toronto native only made her debut with the national team in January 2013 but has seen 12 starts with Lauren Sesselmann out with an anterior cruciate ligament injury. Herdman said it was disappointing to come so close and not get the win but he liked what he saw of the Canadian teams development as they prepare for the 2015 Womens World Cup. American striker Sydney Leroux, who was born in Surrey, B.C., tied the game just before the 78-minute mark when she kicked Canadian defender Rebecca Quinns crossing header into the corner past goalkeeper Erin McLeod. It was the third consecutive game against Canada in which shes scored a goal. "She loves big moments and shes come through and shes been fantastic," said interim U.S. coach Jill Ellis. McLeod had to make one big save early in the game off Heather OReilly and another in the second half off a header by Wambach. Then the Canadian team had to block a free kick just past the 84-minute mark that could have put the Americans in the lead. American keeper Hope Solo had her bid to tie the U.S. shutout record foiled by Buchanan. The day before the game, Herdman said the crowd could play a role. "Were not going to have 700 shots and 700 crosses, so the fans have got to be ready to really get behind us when we need (them)," he said. The crowd of 28,255 didnt disappoint. The game was also blessed with cool but dry weather, after a forecast that threatened rain, and it was the second largest crowd ever to watch a womens friendly in Canada. "You could feel the energy," said Herdman, who suggested it was a taste of what Canada will offer when it hosts the Womens World Cup next summer. Solo, who also played for the U.S. in the 1999 Pan American Games in Winnipeg, is just one away from tying Briana Scurry for the most shutouts in the American programs history at 70. Melissa Tancredi, who rejoined the Canadian team for the first time since she returned to school a couple of years ago to finish her chiropractic studies, got some playing time late in the second half. The Winnipeg-born Scott said she was thrilled to play for the first time in front of friends and family as a member of the national team. This is her sixth year on Canadas squad. "It was exhilarating and exciting for me and it definitely drove me to give a great performance tonight," she said. Buchanan, meanwhile, is also a member of Canadas under-20 World Cup team. The under-20 World Cup starts Aug. 5 with games set to take place in Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal and Moncton. Ian Thomas Jersey .

DJ Moore Jersey . - Connor McDavid scored twice and added two assists as the Erie Otters beat the Sarnia Sting 7-3 on Saturday night in Ontario Hockey League action. http://www.nflpanthersgearofficial.com/m...es-jersey/ .Y. -- The New York Islanders were seeking a positive finish to a frustrating season on home ice. ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Tampa Bay Rays put switch-hitting second baseman Ben Zobrist on the 15-day disabled list Thursday because of a dislocated left thumb. "Right now, were just doing treatment and weve got to let the inflammation get down," Zobrist said before the Rays began a four-game series with the Los Angeles Angels. "As far as everything else, I can throw, I can do exercises and I can run, so I can keep my body in complete shape -- outside of swinging and catching balls. "So once it starts feeling good enough, Ill be able to be able to hit left-handed first. Catching the ball will probably be the last thing." Zobrist was injured on a headfirst slide while trying to steal second base in Wednesdays 2-0 victory at Seattle. "I knew it was dislocated when I looked at it," he said. "But I was definitely relieved that it wasnt broken, too." The headfirst slide is a part of Zobrists game, and something he plans to continue when he returns to the lineup. "Ive slid headfirst a whole lot in my career," said Zobrist, who turns 33 in less than two weeks. "And every time Ive slid normally headfirst, Ive been safe -- not safe on the play, mind you -- but as far as not getting hurt. The oonly two times Ive tried to avoid a tag diving headfirst are the two times Ive hurt myself. Torrey Smith Jersey. So for me, its not a matter of sliding headfirst. Its a matter of trying to do something crazy while youre sliding headfirst." Zobrist played in a career-high 157 games last season, becoming the first player in franchise history to appear in 150 or more games in five consecutive years. The nine-year veteran and two-time All-Star is batting .260 with three homers and nine RBIs for the Rays, who came to Anaheim last in the A.L. East -- but just 3 1/2 games out of first. "This guy is a regular part of our heartbeat," manager Joe Maddon said. "Hes the guy that puts you back into a normal rhythm a lot of times, so its no fun. But weve had to go through these moments before -- and some of our best years we had to go through a lot of adversity early with injuries. The fact that nobodys running away with the division while were going through our maladies is a good thing." The Rays selected the contract of Cole Figueroa from Triple-A Durham. The 26-year-old infielder was hitting .299 with three homers and 16 RBIs at Durham. This is his seventh season in professional ball and his first trip to the big leagues.

          NEW YORK -- Mets closer Bobby Parnell was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesda      Cache   Translate Page      
NEW YORK -- Mets closer Bobby Parnell was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a partially torn elbow ligament and will be sidelined until at least late May. Fred Warner Jersey . Parnell will be out much longer if it turns out he needs surgery. But first, he will try resting for two weeks before beginning a throwing program that could last up to a month, general manager Sandy Alderson said. If that doesnt heal Parnells right elbow sufficiently, he likely would require surgery. "Its conceivable, I guess, that we would cut that off earlier than four weeks if we thought he wasnt making progress," Alderson said. "Theres always the risk that it will completely tear. But because of the location, the doctors were comfortable with the conservative approach." The move was made retroactive to April 1. New York selected the contract of veteran right-hander Kyle Farnsworth from Triple-A Las Vegas and added him to a suspect bullpen that flopped on opening day. Alderson said some of the clubs starters at Las Vegas will pitch out of the bullpen over the next couple of months to get accustomed to that role. That probably will not include top prospect Noah Syndergaard. "We have some great arms and at some point it will be important for us to see them," Alderson said. In other moves, second baseman Daniel Murphy was placed on paternity leave and the Mets recalled infielder Wilmer Flores from Las Vegas. Flores started at second against Washington left-hander Gio Gonzalez. Chris Young, who missed the opener with what was described as a minor right quadriceps strain, made his first start for the Mets but never came to bat. Young played the first inning in left field before he was lifted for Andrew Brown in the top of the second. Three innings later, the Mets announced Young left the game with tightness in his right quad. Young joined the team as a free agent in the off-season, signing a $7.25 million, one-year contract. Murphy is expected back in time for Thursdays matinee. He and his wife, Victoria, welcomed a baby boy named Noah on Monday. To make room for Farnsworth on the 40-man roster, the Mets sent right-hander Ryan Reid outright to the minors. Parnell threw 25 pitches in the season opener Monday against the Nationals and blew a save, giving up Denard Spans tying double in the ninth. New York lost 9-7 in 10 innings. It was the right-handers first save opportunity since a neck injury that eventually required surgery sidelined him for the final two months last season. Parnell complained of tightness in his right elbow after the game. The Mets said he was examined Tuesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery, had an MRI and was diagnosed with a partial tear of the right medial collateral ligament. The team said he received a plasma injection. The Mets already are without All-Star ace Matt Harvey, expected to miss the entire season following Tommy John surgery Oct. 22 for a partial tear of his right ulnar collateral ligament. Jose Valverde, a three-time All-Star, takes over as the closer. The 36-year-old right-hander has 286 saves in an 11-year big league career with Arizona, Houston and Detroit. "I feel bad for Bobby. What I want is for Bobby to be OK," Valverde said. "I want this guy to come back soon. I want him closing games for the Mets."

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 . Torres scored the first goal by an English team in the knockout phase of the Champions League this season when he met Cezar Azpilicuetas cutback in the ninth minute of their first leg match in the last 16. But Chelsea failed to make the most of its counterattacks and the Turkish champions equalized in the second half after gaining in confidence and cutting out their defensive mistakes.

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.

Aaron Loup is the short-term option there, while Casey Janssen is due back from injury soon. - After being removed from the closers role, Angels RHP Ernesto Frieri may be about to reclaim the job from sidearmer Joe Smith. Frieri ha worked four perfect relief outings since he was bumped from the job. - The lonely Houston Astros closer job is being split, by Anthony Bass and Chad Qualls. As if one couldnt handle all those opportunities. - Oaklands Jim Johnson has pitched 10 1/3 IP since he was knocked out of the closers job, but that stretch has put him at the head of the committee which includes Luke Gregerson and Sean Doolittle.

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.

          Caged for the Storm as Hurricane Florence Bears Down      Cache   Translate Page      

Despite South Carolina issuing an evacuation order for all coastal counties ahead of category-3 hurricane Florence, the state corrections department decided Monday that it would not transfer 934 prisoners and as many as 119 staff in one prison.

Although Governor Henry McMaster lifted the evacuation order for three counties, including Jasper where the facility Ridgeland is located, these counties are still deemed evacuation zones by South Carolina Emergency Management Division.

Past history suggests this might prove disastrous. In Miami-Dade County, Florida, officials left nearly 4,500 prisoners inside facilities during Hurricane Irma in 2017, even though multiple prison facilities in that county were demolished by Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Prisoners who outlasted Hurricane Irma described cells covered in mold, urine, and feces, and prison guards spoke out about the horrors of conditions. When Hurricane Harvey hit Texas last year, prisoners experienced flooding and lacked enough drinking water and medicines.

After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Human Rights Watch documented the nightmare nearly 600 prisoners endured in the Orleans Parish Prison compound. They told us officers chose to save themselves, while many prisoners were not evacuated for four days. Letters from prisoners detail how they were “left to die” with no food, water (except from toilets), lights or medical attention, amid chest-high contaminated water and broken gas lines. Evacuated prisoners transferred to Jena Correctional Facility were beaten and abused by officers, with some forced to lie in their own vomit.

Prisoners across 17 states, including South Carolina, concluded a two-week strike from August 21 to September 9, 2018 to pressure the country’s penal system for reform to produce “conditions of prisons and prison policies that recognize the humanity of imprisoned men and women.” Overcrowded facilities, unsafe and unsanitary environments, substandard nutrition and substandard medical care already pose a grave risk to prisoner health and safety. A hurricane will only exacerbate those risks.

State and local authorities should either evacuate prisoners from facilities in the path of the storm or explain publicly and convincingly why they are certain is safe not to. They should also know that they will be held accountable if they gamble with the safety of prisoners only to repeat the mistakes and abuses of the past.

          Moon rock hunter closes in on tracking down missing stones      Cache   Translate Page      

SALT LAKE CITY – A strange thing happened after Neil Armstrong and the Apollo 11 crew returned from the moon with lunar rocks: Many of the mementos given to every U.S. state vanished. Now, after years of sleuthing, a former NASA investigator is closing in on his goal of locating the whereabouts of all 50.

In recent weeks, two of the rocks that disappeared after the 1969 mission were located in Louisiana and Utah, leaving only New York and Delaware with unaccounted-for souvenirs.

Attorney and moon rock hunter Joseph Gutheinz says it “blows his mind,” that the rocks were not carefully chronicled and saved by some of the states that received them. But he is hopeful the last two can be located before the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission next summer.

“It’s a tangible piece of history,” he said. “Neil Armstrong’s first mission … was to reach down and grab some rocks and dust in case they needed to make an emergency takeoff.”

President Richard Nixon’s administration presented the tiny lunar samples to all 50 states and 135 countries, but few were officially recorded and most disappeared, Gutheinz said.

Each state got a tiny sample encased in acrylic and mounted on a wooden plaque, along with the state flag. Some were placed in museums, while others went on display in state capitols.

But almost no state entered the rocks collected by Armstrong and fellow astronaut Buzz Aldrin into archival records, and Gutheinz said many lost track of them.

When Gutheinz started leading the effort to find them in 2002, he estimates 40 states had lost track of the rocks.

“I think part of it was, we honestly believed that going back to the moon was going to be a regular occurrence,” Gutheinz said.

But there were only five more journeys before the last manned moon landing, Apollo 17, in 1972.

Of the Apollo 11 rocks given to other countries, about 70 percent remain unaccounted for, he said.

The U.S. government also sent out a second set of goodwill moon rocks to the states and other nations after the Apollo 17 mission, and many of those are missing as well, he said.

NASA did not track their whereabouts after giving them to the Nixon administration for distribution, said chief historian Bill Barry, but added the space agency would be happy to see them located.

Gutheinz began his career as an investigator for NASA, where he found illicit sellers asking millions for rocks on the black market. Authentic moon rocks are considered national treasures and cannot legally be sold in the U.S., he said.

He became aware while at NASA that the gifts to the states were missing, but only began his hunt after leaving the agency.

Now a lawyer in the Houston area, he’s also a college instructor who’s enlisted the help of his students. They record their findings of the whereabouts of the discovered moon gems in a database.

Many of the Apollo 11 rocks have turned up in unexpected places: with ex-governors in West Virginia and Colorado, in a military-artifact storage building in Minnesota and with a former crab boat captain from TV’s “Deadliest Catch” in Alaska.

In New York, officials who oversee the state museum have no record of that state’s Apollo 11 rock. In Delaware, the sample was stolen from its state museum on Sept. 22, 1977. Police were contacted, but it was never found.

The U.S. Virgin Islands territory, meanwhile, cannot confirm that they ever received a goodwill rock, though the University of the Virgin Islands later received Apollo 11 rocks for scientific research, said chief conservator Julio Encarnacion III.

In other states, though Gutheinz has recently hit paydirt. The Advocate newspaper in Baton Rouge located Louisiana’s Apollo 11 moon rock in early August after a call from Gutheinz.

In Utah, the division of state history had no record of the sample, but The Associated Press confirmed it was in storage at Salt Lake City’s Clark Planetarium.

Officials there may bring it out as part of celebrations recognizing the Apollo 11 anniversary next year, something Gutheinz hopes to see everywhere.

“The people of the world deserve this,” he said. “They deserve to see something that our astronauts accomplished and be a part it.”

          Texas priest arrested for alleged child sex abuse      Cache   Translate Page      

Houston, Texas, Sep 12, 2018 / 05:59 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- A priest of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston was arrested Tuesday in connection with allegations that he sexually abused at least two children decades ago.

Police in Conroe, Texas have reported that the priest has been charged with four counts of indecency to children. While stationed at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Conroe, Father Manuel La Rosa-Lopez was accused in 2001 of kissing and  inappropriately touching a 16 year-old girl.

The priest was permitted to return to ministry after the allegation was reviewed by the Texas authorities and the archdiocesan review board in 2003, which allowed the priest to return to ministry in 2004. Reportedly, the women moved back in 2010 and saw that the priest had been transferred to St. John Fisher parish in Richmond, Texas.

After contacting the archdiocese, the woman was referred to counseling services and briefly met with Father La Rosa-Lopez, who offered his apologies, according to Click 2 Houston.  

A 36 year-old man presented a case of sexual abuse Aug. 10. The man said he had been sexually abused from 1998-200, also at Sacred Heart parish.

In a Sept. 12 statement, the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston said it immediately presented this case to Children’s Protective Services. The archdiocese also said that the priest has denied these allegations.

“We take these matters very seriously, which is why we reported the information we received from both individuals to CPS – and removed Father La Rosa-Lopez from ministry.”

An arrest warrant was issued for the priest by the district attorney of Montgomery County Sept. 11. Father La Rosa-Lopez turned himself in to the police that evening.

The archdiocese has not commented on the timing of Father La Rosa-Lopez’s removal from the parish.

However, archdiocese upheld its strong commitment to the protection of children and expressed its apologies to any victims who have been injured by sexual abuse.

“The Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston recognizes it clearly has both a legal and a moral obligation to address any incidence of abuse – sexual or otherwise – to God’s children. Such behavior simply will not be tolerated.”

“To anyone affected by any form of abuse by anyone who represents the Church, the Archdiocese deeply regrets such a fundamental violation of trust, and commits itself to eliminating such unacceptable actions.”

The Archbishop of Galveston-Houston, Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, is president of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Together with several other USCCB officials, Cardinal DiNardo is meeting with Pope Francis Sept. 13 to discuss the clerical sexual abuse crisis that has roiled the Church in the US for several months.

          Hurricane Hell: Here Are 5 of the Most Recent Devastating Storms Linked to Climate Change      Cache   Translate Page      
The new normal is frightening.

Only two weeks after the government of Puerto Rico raised the official death toll from Hurricane Maria from 64 to 2,975—making it the deadliest hurricane to occur last year—North and South Carolina residents are evacuating coastal areas in preparation for Hurricane Florence, which is expected to deliver winds of 130 miles per hour and be the worst hurricane to hit the Carolinas since the 1980s. Hurricanes have been pounding the southeastern U.S. for centuries, but in the era of climate change, they are becoming more frequent and more devastating.

Meteorologists are seeing an increase in the what is known as “rapid intensification,” meaning that a storm’s maximum sustained winds increase by at least 35 mph within a 24-hour period. According to data from the National Hurricane Center, there were, on average, ten cases of rapid intensification per year between 1982 and 1994—whereas between 2005 and 2017, 20 cases per year was the average. In 2017, the National Hurricane Center reported 40 cases of rapid intensification.

Meteorologists have five separate categories for hurricanes, with Category 1 being the least severe and Category 5 being the most severe. Florence appears to be reaching the Carolinas as a Category 4, but it could intensify to Category 5. And when rapid intensification—a phenomenon encouraged by climate change—occurs and a hurricane goes from Category 1 to Category 4 or 5 in less than 24 hours, there is little time to prepare.  

Here are five of the most devastating hurricanes that occurred in recent years.

1. Hurricane Katrina

In August 2015, Hurricane Katrina originated in the Bahamas before making its way to the U.S. A hurricane varies in intensity, and at its worst, Katrina became a Category 5 storm. The National Hurricane Center attributed a total of 1836 deaths to Katrina, with up to 1577 deaths in Louisiana—and the flooding was so severe in New Orleans that 80% of the city was under water.

Veteran reporter Mark Schleifstein, who covered Katrina for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, witnessed Katrina first hand and has some grim advice for residents of the Carolinas who are refusing to evacuate for Hurricane Florence: “write your Social Security number on your arm, so officials can identify your body.”

2. Hurricane Harvey

2017 was a terrible year for hurricanes, and one of the worst was Hurricane Harvey—which affected parts of Latin America (including Nicaragua and Honduras) but was especially devastating around the Texas Gulf Coast. Of the 108 deaths caused by Harvey in late August/early September 2017, 103 were in Texas. Some weather stations in Texas reported more than four feet of rain, and Houston suffered some of the worst flooding in the city’s history. 

3. Hurricane Maria

Only a few weeks after Hurricane Harvey ravaged the Texas Gulf Coast, the Caribbean was, in September 2017, pounded by Hurricane Maria—which reached Category 5 at its worst. Maria caused some deaths in the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Guadalupe, but the worst damage by far occurred in Puerto Rico. Of the more than 3,050 people killed by Maria, most of the fatalities occurred in Puerto Rico—although 65 people were killed on the island of Dominica, which didn’t have time to adequately prepare thanks to rapid intensification. A year later, Puerto Rico is still recovering from Maria.

Maria is a perfect example of how bad climate change is making rapid intensification: the storm went from Category 1 to Category 5 in only about half a day.

4. Hurricane Sandy

In the U.S., hurricanes have been most likely to affect the southern states.

Floridians are more likely to experience hurricanes than residents of New Jersey or Massachusetts, but that doesn’t mean that residents of the northeastern U.S. are immune to them—not by a longshot. And in 2012, Hurricane Sandy caused billions of dollars in damage, pounding the New Jersey Shore and the coast of Maryland as well as New York City. Atlantic City was evacuated, parts of Manhattan suffered flooding, and the mass transit systems of NYC and Philadelphia (which is about 60 miles inland) were shut down.

When Kevin E. Trenberth (a senior climatologist for the National Center for Atmospheric Research) was asked whether or not Hurricane Sandy was affected by climate change, he responded that while the answer was yes, Sandy was hardly unique in that regard. In 2012, Trenberth asserted, “All weather events are affected by climate change because the environment in which they occur is warmer and moister than it used to be.”

5. Hurricane Ike

In September 2008, Hurricane Ike caused at least 195 deaths and affected a wide area ranging from Cuba, Haiti (where at least 74 deaths occurred) and the Bahamas to the Florida Panhandle, the Mississippi Coast and the Texas Gulf Coast. Altogether, Ike is believed to have caused about $38 billion in damage.

          Alberth Elis podría ser portada del FIFA 19: "Me llena de mucho orgullo"      Cache   Translate Page      

La Prensa

Houston, Estados Unidos.

El delantero hondureño Alberth Elis se encuentra que no cabe de la emoción; ya que ha sido nominado para ser la cara del videojuego de FIFA 2019 en los Estados Unidos.

Aunque compite con los pesos pesados de la liga, el goleador del Houston Dynamo manifestó sentirse muy honrado por la distinción que recayó sobre su persona, el club y Hondura.

Así mismo “La Panterita” sonríe, acaricia y vive a plenitud la posibilidad de ser uno de los 4 futbolistas en la portada del popular video juego y para eso ocupa la ayuda del aficionado nacional.

“Es una nominación que tomó con mucha alegría, con el tan solo hecho de ser considerado para algo tan importante, es más que suficiente para hacerme sentir como un ganador, ya que me motiva a seguir trabajando y me confirma que estoy en un buen camino dentro de mi carrera, se de la competencia que tengo para lograr este objetivo y me ilusiona mucho", señaló emocionado el Exclusiva el ariete catracho.

La alta competencia dentro de la liga es algo a lo que Elis ya está acostumbrado, cada fin de semana debe enfrentarse a futbolistas de la talla del ídolo sueco Zlatan Ibrahimovic, al goleador más prolífico de la MLS Josef Martínez, al inglés Wayne Rooney o al mexicano Carlos Vela, entre otros.

En esta ocasión los aficionados pueden escoger con sus votos, si el hondureño se convierte en una de las 4 caras en el popular videojuego.

La votación concluye el 21 de septiembre a las 3:00 hora hondureña.

com/post/2018/09/10/vote-mls-fifa-19-custom-cover“Estoy feliz, tranquilo, el solo hecho de estar allí me llena de orgullo y el ver el apoyo que he recibido en redes sociales por parte de la afición de Honduras y la de Houston me hace sentir muy satisfecho, me encantaría salir en la portada por supuesto que sí, sería un logro más en mi carrera, vamos a dar batalla y ver si se puede lograr”, indicó.

¿Qué tan bueno es jugando estos videojuegos?Me gusta jugar durante mi tiempo libre con los compañeros de equipo, no soy un tan buen jugador, pero tampoco soy el peor, tengo mis cosas.

En redes sociales da la impresión que Romell Quioto es un crack en esto de los videojuegos, ¿Cuál es la historia de sus enfrentamientos?Una profunda carcajada antecede su respuesta… El me gana muchas veces y en ocasiones lo sorprendo, es buen jugador, pero es que el pasa más tiempo jugando, yo creo que ni come por estar en eso, a él le encanta y le dedica más tiempo y obvio es mejor jugador que yo, pero sabe que no se puede confiar porque también le puedo ganar.

¿De los futbolistas hondureños quien es el rey del videojuego?Me parece que Alex López es un gran jugador, durante el tiempo que estuvimos en la selección pudo verlo jugar y es el mejor, Bryan Acosta es otro que juega muy bien, me parece que en ellos están en ese orden y en tercer lugar ubicaría a Quioto, José Escalante también es un buen jugador.

¿Cuánto es lo máximo que le ha goleado Alex López o alguno de ellos?Cuando he tenido una mala tarde me meten 3-0, después de ese marcador uno ya pierde y si te clavaron tres veces se da por perdido y jugamos otro partido.

¿De los seleccionados nacionales quiénes no gustan de estos videojuegos?A Beckeles no le gustan los videojuegos, no le llaman la atención para nada, le podría asegurar que ese muchacho no juega ni maúles… la carcajada se hizo más sonora.

A los jugadores de experiencia de la selección no les llama mucho la atención los videojuegos, el único que es apasionado de ellos es Carlo Costly, aunque aún no he jugado contra él.

¿Cuánto tiempo le dedica a esta práctica?No es algo que haga tanto debido a los múltiples compromisos que tenemos con el club, pero cuando estamos en concentraciones con el equipo lo hacemos para relajarnos y en ocasiones mis amigos me visitan y se ha hecho una costumbre jugar un par de partidos, no disfruto jugar en online, prefiero tener a alguien junto a mí para hacerlo.

Como fiel seguidor del Real Madrid este es el equipo que utiliza cuando toma los controles, el Houston Dynamo es el segundo equipo de su preferencia, un elemento muy importante para Elis es el esquema de juego, su formación favorita es el 4-4-2, su estilo de juego se basa en un traslado rápido y eficaz del balón en busca de habilitar a los dos delanteros.

¿Si tuviera que jugar un juego de estrellas en FIFA a quienes escogería en su XI titular?Me la jugaría con Keylor Navas, mis defensas centrales serián Sergio Ramos y Raphael Varane, por la izquierda David Alaba y por la derecha con Nelson Semedo, en la contención utilizaría a Paul Pogba, Luka Modric y Toni Kross, arriba me la jugaría con cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe y Leonel Messi, yo sería el director técnico y volvió la carcajada.

Recientemente jugó un partido contra Memo Treviño, el campeón del torneo FIFA de la MLS, ¿Cómo le fue en ese encuentro?Algunas veces se gana y en otras se aprende, en esa ocasión no me fue como yo esperaba, pero por lo menos aprendí unos trucos para poder mejorar mi juego, ese muchacho es demasiado bueno, pero eso es lo de él, dejémoslo así mejor y cambiemos de tema.

¿Cómo hondureño que sensaciones le deja el que se junten dos de sus pasiones y la posibilidad de representar a Honduras en esto?Me llena de mucho orgullo, pero lo más valioso de esta experiencia es sentir el cariño de mi gente, la forma en la que ellos han salido a apoyarme me hace sentirme muy honrado y querido, ya sea que quede o no entre los cuatro de la portada, lo que han hecho por mi hasta hoy es lo más valioso y les quiero dar las gracias, se siente rico saber que están conmigo.

¿Está conforme con la apariencia de Alberth Elis en el videojuego?Se parece bastante a mí, la empresa que realiza el videojuego se reunió conmigo y me escanearon para poder recrear una imagen idéntica y creo que lo lograron, muchos de los movimientos que realizo los verán en el juego, además será muy veloz, ya que esa es una de mis cualidades, tendrá cada una de mis habilidades y debilidades.

Como el videojuego no ha salido desconozco cuál será mi rating, por lo que habrá que esperar.

Sus celebraciones de gol han sido nominadas al top 5 de las mejores en la MLS, ¿Será que veremos a la pantera en FIFA 2019?Esperemos que si este en el videojuego y disfrutarla cuando anote goles, pero la verdad no, pero si espero que sea incluida y también me gustaría que mi celebración ganara el primer lugar en la MLS.

Son los pilotos de simulación. Esos otros tíos que se suben a un coche a correr durante un fin de semana de carreras pero no huelen la gasolina, ni viajan a los circuitos. Cuando se bajan de su estático monoplaza se van al parking, pillan su coche y se marchan a casa conduciendo, solos. Y es que cada fin de semana hay dos Grandes Premios para cada equipo, el de los circuitos y el que disputan estos empleados en la factoría. Si antes existían dos formaciones en el seno de una escudería, la de carreras y la de test, tras pasar por ser sólo una ahora vuelven a haber un par: la de carreras y la de simulación… aunque también tienen enemigos.

Liberty quiere cepillarse los llamados garajes virtuales, toda esa gente que trabaja en la sede de las escuderías durante cada evento porque de cara a la galería no aportan nada, cuestan una leña y ayudan a mejorar el rendimiento de los coches en pista de forma invisible. A mediados de la década se decidió, para ahorrar, que los equipos llevasen sólo a 60 empleados de orden operativo alrededor de los coches. En el paquete no entraban pilotos, sus entornos y el personal de relaciones públicas, prensa y hospitalities. Para paliar esta rebaja muscular y de forma paralela se crearon los llamados garajes virtuales; grupos de analistas, estrategas y técnicos que trabajan en las factorías con el horario de las carreras para complementar la tarea de los que si tocan los monoplazas.

El siguiente salto de calidad a las llamadas “salas de guerra”, donde una treintena de técnicos se sientan ante gigantescas pantallas a modo del control de Houston de la NASA, fue utilizar los simuladores. Pusieron a pilotos con cierta experiencia con monoplazas, no necesariamente en Fórmula 1, a rodar con los ajustes de los coches en pista. La idea era (y es) emular sus tiempos, emparejar los registros en lo posible e ir aplicando modificaciones a los bólidos virtuales para ver si funcionan. De ser así, en la siguiente tanda de entrenos libres o cronometrados los coches reales pueden salir a pista con cambios testados en el simulador con los que se sabe que funcionan, al menos ‘en la nube’.

Casi en las nubes están los pilotos binarios que se suben en una de las configuraciones de simulador que se gastan en la F1: los hexápodos. Ferrari o Red Bull tienen de este tipo y son una especie de carlinga que se asemeja a la del Halcón Milenario de Star Wars en cuyo centro está situado un cockpit de F1. Esa estructura circular de entre tres y cuatro metros de diámetro alberga sensores y pantallas para moverse imitando la agitación propia de un coche de carreras meneado por accionadores electroneumáticos y subidos en seis enormes patas.

pilotos-sombra-virutas-f1-201850045_2.jp

El simulador de Dallara es uno de los más avanzados de la actualidad.

El otro tipo de simulador, el de raíles como el de Mercedes, se sitúa en una sala espaciosa y el cockpit real se desplaza como si fuera una gigantesca batidora de personas en la que se mueve todo el conjunto. El de Mercedes en concreto posee una suerte de cúpula de un cristal especial, esférico y multicapa sobre el que se proyectan las imágenes de los trazados digitales. Este vidrio no puede tocarse, se le sopla para limpiarlo y está diseñado para proveer de profundidad a la imagen, una superior inmersión de la que carecen las pantallas planas o reflectores sobre los lienzos habituales.

De un tiempo a esta parte se están empezando a usar gafas de realidad virtual, pero el efecto realista es distinto. La casuística por equipos es diversa y si Ferrari usa la totalidad del MOOG de Dallara, Mercedes gasta el software de emulación y análisis diseñado por McLaren, o Red Bull se lo hizo todo menos las patas de su hexápodo. Lo que sí parece ser común es el escaneado de las pistas, que es realizado por una compañía especializada en entornos virtuales. Su grado de realismo es muy superior al mejor de los videojuegos actuales.

Si te sales, sencillamente reinicias y vuelves a intentarlo

Una vez que el corredor binario se sube en el monoplaza trucho, se intenta correlacionar lo que ocurre en pista con los análisis de los ingenieros. Se piden al piloto cinco o seis vueltas en un intento de clavar el tiempo. Aunque no sea sencillo hacer una vuelta al ritmo de Lewis, Vettel o Max, al no haber riesgo de perder el coche, de atizarse y de mandarlo todo al carajo, se arriesga un poco más. Si te sales, sencillamente reinicias y vuelves a intentarlo. Si se obtiene una telemetría afín a lo que se esperaba ya hay una base de trabajo fiable. Al coche simulado se le comienzan a hacer cambios y modificaciones cuando comienzan a llegar datos de pista, así que la mayor parte del trabajo digital comienza cuando acaban las sesiones reales.

Tras los Libres 1 hay una reunión online entre los equipos de pista y el de factoría donde todos escuchan con auriculares. En realidad son dos reuniones que ocurren de forma paralela en lugares separados por miles de kilómetros y al mismo tiempo. Se ponen en común los datos adquiridos y se le aplican al simulador los datos del monoplaza real en su primer contacto con la pista. El primer movimiento es lograr el tiempo realizado en pista en los Libres oficiales, y una vez igualado, al menos en constancia y ritmo, comienzan a retocarlo en la factoría.

Los cambios no suelen ser muy importantes; medio grado de camber por aquí, se modifica la convergencia, se retoca el caster… Si con esos cambios digitales funcionan, se les proponen a los ingenieros en circuito y se le ejecutan al coche. Es como un tests de pretemporada entre tanda y tanda, rodar más tiempo en pista pero sin pista. Estos cambios se le podrían ejecutar al coche sin la necesidad de simular nada, pero en el mundo real se suele hacer un único cambio, un parámetro que se ha de probar, pero nunca varios a la vez.

Algunos pilotos rechazan el uso de los simuladores. Son útiles para reconocer pistas en las que nunca se ha rodado, recrear situaciones sin muchos test que poder hacer o lo del test virtual durante el fin de semana de carreras. El problema es que muchos se marean y tienden a sentirse indispuestos tras encaramarse en uno de estos chismes. Es bien conocido que Michael Schumacher era alérgico a este ingenio y se empezaba a poner nervioso con sólo nombrárselo. Esta tendencia tiende a desaparecer poco a poco por dos razones: de costumbres y técnica. La primera remite a la llamada Generación Playstation. El uso de simuladores verdaderamente avanzados en la Fórmula 1 es reciente, de esta segunda década del Siglo XXI, así que muchos de los pilotos que pueblan la actual parrilla han añadido estos sistemas con posterioridad a su llegada a la categoría.

pilotos-sombra-virutas-f1-201850045_3.jp

Los que llegan detrás, los más recientes, ya nacieron como corredores subidos en inventos similares y están acostumbrados al segundo parámetro: el decalaje. El elemento al que apuntan los CSI de la simulación a la hora de buscar el culpable de mareos y vomiteras es el retardo entre la acción manual sobre los mandos y que se ejecute la acción. Desde el inicio del uso de simuladores esta ha sido una asignatura en la que se ha mejorado casi a diario y el paso de la acción a la reacción en pantalla se ha reducido de forma exponencial. A pesar de ello cuando este mismo movimiento, ese giro de volante, esa respuesta a la velocidad de las sinapsis nerviosas se ejecuta sobre el asfalto el efecto es inmediato mientras que la percepción por parte de los pilotos, tipos acostumbrados a moverse a sus anchas dentro de las centésimas de segundo, perciben esto. Lo notan. Pilotos que han probado diversos simuladores afirman justo esto: los que se marean no lo hacen por la agitación del hardware, de hecho hay simuladores que apenas se mueven, sino que es por el retardo entre acción y reacción en bloque sus ojos perciben. Si la tecnología trajo el problema será la tecnología la que lo solvente, que es lo habitual. 

Lo habitual también es que el piloto binario se baje del sim el sábado, acabe su jornada laboral desde ocho de la mañana hasta la seis de la tarde y coja el único coche real que vaya a pillar ese día para irse a su casa o un hotel. Probablemente cene solo si no tiene familia en los alrededores y pasará en el comedor de algún restaurante por un joven extranjero que debe estar de paso. El paralelismo con lo que viven sus homónimos en los circuitos es cero. Al día siguiente, si su corredor-espejo sube al pódium, en la soledad de un vuelo de vuelta a casa si no vive en el país de su equipo dirá en su asiento y en voz baja: “Hoy he ganado”. Pero nadie le oirá.

          Comment on Timing is Everything by LJH      Cache   Translate Page      
Hi, Ms. Fisher and Dr. Sutton. My cat, MK, was diagnosed with small-cell lymphoma and IBD last December. With the help of an excellent oncologist located in Houston, she is doing fairly well. However, I found this page because, as a result of Prednisilone, MK has unfortunately developed diabetes, with a diagnosis last week, and I'm looking for any help I can get. At any rate, MK seemed to quickly go into remission with her lymphoma; yet, we struggled to control her diarrhea issue, most likely related to IBD, for many months. After exhausting a lengthy list of approaches, an internist who works with our oncologist suggested trying RX Clay as an alternative therapy. It's a very fine, tasteless powdered clay that you sprinkle on their food. It immediately did the trick - and we all were shocked. I actually give a much lower dose than suggested. She's had a flareup here and there and I just up the amount for a bit and she gets right on track. (Too much will, of course, have the adverse effect). Maybe you could talk with your vet/internists to see if this is an option for your cat. I ordered the RX Clay online - I'd caution against any warehouse-type sellers, though. Dr. Sutton, thank you for sharing your knowledge on such an important subject. I am feeling quite stressed about ensuring I manage MK's diabetes correctly, but your guidance has been very helpful. (P.S. I'm also in Florida and glad to see the off-season breather arrive!)

Y'all, it's officially midway through September, and despite temperatures that are still steadily climbing into the 90+ range every day, that means fall (well, Houston's version of fall) is here. It's time to start planning weekends around our fall bucket list, hitting up all the family-friendly fall festivals and snapping photos at the different pumpkin patches around the city, even if it means we're sweating through our flannel while we're doing it. 

This weekend also marks the annual celebration of Mexico's fight for independence, and in true Houston style, we're celebrating it big with events like the 50th Annual Fiestas Patrias Parade, a day of Fiestas Patrias activities at the Children's Museum of Houston, and a Fiestas Patrias celebration at Trader's Village

In case you haven't quite filled up your daily calendar yet, our event calendar and our September GoList are stocked with awesome events and activities happening in every corner of the Houston area, so you're always equipped to keep boredom at bay. We are also ready to deliver everything happening on Mommy Poppins straight to you when you sign up for our weekly newsletter, keeping you in the know with the best tips, tricks, and activities we have to offer.

          The Ark Church Student Pastor / Church Planter In Residence      Cache   Translate Page      

PLEASE APPLY HERE ---> https://vsearch.ws/2N9FqyK

 

Theology: Non-denominational

Weekly attendance: 7600

Neighborhood: Conroe, Texas

The role: We are seeking an energetic, Spirit-filled leader to continue building and leading a thriving student ministry as they train toward church planting. This person will work alongside our Student Ministry Pastor and other AYC staff members in overseeing activities including weekly services, retreats, and mission trips, as well as outreach events and ongoing discipleship initiatives.

Meet The Ark Church:

Alan and Joy Clayton spent ten years in various ministries with founding Pastor John Osteen at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. In June of 1996, with Pastor Osteen’s blessing, they started The Ark Family Church (now The Ark Church) in Conroe, Texas.

Experiencing a strong growth pattern from the beginning the church soon moved into, and renovated a roller rink, where services were held from 1997-2005. In order to accommodate the continued growth, The Ark began holding two additional Sunday services at Conroe High School in 2000 and added a third service in January 2004. During this time, ministries ranging from children and youth to life groups and mid-week services were offered and expanding at a rapid rate.

The current 50+ acre property contains a 100,000 square foot facility that became home to The Ark Church in Spring of 2005. Today, the church continues its historic roots, and long-sustained vision through prayer, ministry to children/youth, and missions, with a strong desire to impact the region of Montgomery County with the love of Christ. It boasts a mission-driven spirit, staff-led leadership, and board accountability. The Ark offers a casual, friendly, and highly diverse environment to its attendees, with a constant emphasis of reaching the unchurched through effective evangelism.

About the Student Pastor / Church-Planter-in-Residence:

The Student Pastor will:

  • Assist AYC staff in offering strong, solid, sustainable leadership to students and leaders, with an initial emphasis in Junior High ministry
  • Serve as one of the primary communicators, preaching weekly in our various services to both Junior High and High School students as well as to young adults
  • Take a lead role in the planning and implementation of all (seven plus) AYC large-scale outreach events, ranging from 600-1,000 students
  • Build intentional, life-giving relationships with students

The Ark is passionate about the "saving of households." One of the many ways The Ark fulfills this mission is to train up and send out church planters. In the last two years The Ark has sent three pastors to plant churches in cities where God has called them. The Ark Church Huntsville, launched in August of 2017, has over 400 in attendance on a weekly basis and offers a variety of ministries to its community. With financial support and relational encouragement these church planters are able to go into a new community with the resources and tools they need to be successful.

As a Church-Planter-in-Residence you will:

  • Learn in a high capacity leadership environment
  • Be connected with a network of pastors who have recently planted successful churches
  • Work in a strong, healthy culture that will prepare you for future ministry
  • Be mentored by executive level leadership toward church planting, with a goal of planting a church within 3 to 5 years

What you bring:

Education

A bachelor’s degree from an accredited university is required.

Experience

The ideal candidate will have two to three years of proven experience working with students in a ministry setting with 100+ students.

Personal Characteristics

  • Demonstrated ability to reach out to students on various school campuses
  • Exceedingly strong communication and leadership abilities
  • Strong understanding of how to work well on a team
  • Competent in organizing ministry for effectiveness and efficiency
  • A strong relationship with Jesus Christ, with a calling and passion to minister to youth
  • Comfortable serving in a Spirit-filled environment
  • Highly relational
  • Exude fun and creative energy
  • Passionate heart for God and his Word
  • Teachable spirit with an approachability and adaptability

What it's like to live in Conroe, Texas:

Conroe, located north of downtown Houston, has experienced incredible growth and transformation over the last century, which originally gained in wealth due to lumber and oil industries.

Today, Conroe occupies some of the finest residential developments in the nation that have sprung up around the picturesque shores and wooded terrain surrounding Lake Conroe. It has largely contributed to both business and population incentives to families over the years, so much so that in 2012 the U.S. Census Bureau designated the area around Conroe and as a "large urbanized transit area," defined as having over 200,000 residents. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Conroe was the fastest-growing city in the nation in 2016 with a growth rate 11 times higher than the national average.

With an ever-increasing income base generated from the attractive business environment and superior school districts educating children, Conroe’s growth continues to expand in its metroplex.

Let's take a little trip with Kid Eternity, on...

I have to be honest here...not a lot happens in this text story.

See what I mean? Kid and Keeper find a seemingly deserted ship, tossed by a storm.

They find the surviving crew below decks, incapacitated with "fever."

 Thor!! This is your third appearance, Goldilocks!!

Thor stops the storm. But what about the sick captain and crew?!?

Dr. Charles Laveran!!

So, was it malaria, or...??

Anyway, that's our whole story. Sorry. The next one is considerably more interesting, I promise! For what it's worth, this is the first text story where Kid has summoned more than one figure, so there's that, I guess??

          2000 NLCS MVP- Mets Pitcher: Mike Hampton (2000)      Cache   Translate Page      
Michael William Hampton was born on September 9, 1972 in Brooksville, Florida. The five foot ten left handed pitcher was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in the 6th round of the 1990 draft . Hampton had a modest minor league career, winning a high of 13 games (13-8) with a 3.12 ERA at A ball San Bernardino in 1992.

In 1993 he made the Seattle staff out of Spring Training. He debuted in Detroit allowing four runs to the Tigers & taking a loss in four innings of work. That day the Mariners lost 20-3. On April 23rd he earned his first big league win, it was a middle relief appearance against the A.L. New York team. He remained on the staff through July going 1-3 with a save & two holds with a 9.53 ERA. He was sent down to AA Jacksonville, where he went 6-4 the rest of the year. In the off season he was traded to the Houston Astros along with Mike Felder in exchange for Eric Anthony.

He spent six seasons in Houston gradually developing into a top starter. Hampton kept his ERA under four every year with the Astros although he did give up a large number of hits & walks throughout his career. He gradually increased his victories each season, going from nine in 1995 to ten in 1996. That year he was 10- 10, striking out 101 batters pitching in 160 innings, while posting a 3.59 ERA.

In 1997 he won 15 games (15-10) second on the first place Astros staff to Daryl Kile (19-7). Hampton posted a 3.83 ERA, throwing a pair of shut outs, striking out 139 batters while pitching 223 innings (9th in the NL). His 34 starts & seven complete games were both third most in the league. On his down side he allowed 217 hits (4th in the league) 77 walks (6th in the league) & 95 earned runs (8th in the league). In the NLDS against the Atlanta Braves, he took the loss in Game #2 allowing six runs in 4.2 innings.

In 1998 he was 11-7 getting to the NLDS again , this time losing to the NL Champion San Diego Padres. He earned no decision in the series. By 1999 he was one of the league’s top pitchers, leading the NL with 22 wins, and a .846 winning percentage. He was third in the NL with a 2.90 ERA, striking out a career high 177 batters (9th in the NL) in 239 innings pitched (4th in the NL). He threw three complete games with two shut outs.

He was the Sporting News Pitcher of the Year, coming in runner up to Arizona's Randy Johnson for the Cy Young Award. Hampton made his first ALL Star appearance that year as well. He was one of two twenty game winners on the Astros staff, the other being Jose Lima (21-10). The Astros got to another post season but exited in the first round once again. Hampton was always a good hitting pitcher and was one of the best of his era. In 1999 he hit .311 with seven walks and 10 RBIs. 

Houston took advantage of Hampton's big season; with it being the final year of his contract they put him on the trade block. In order to not pay out a big contract they traded him to the New York Mets in December 1999. In the deal the Astros insisted the Mets take along Derek Bell who had been nothing but trouble for Houston. In exchange the Mets gave up Octavio Dotel & Roger Cedeno. He may have had a short career in New York but the one season he pitched here, was an important one. He was the last piece Bobby Valentine needed in order to get his team to the World Series.

Hampton’s 2000 season didn’t start out so well, on Opening Day in a game played in Japan, he lost to the Chicago Cubs, allowing two runs over five innings pitched. He started out the year at 0-3 before getting his first win, which came at Shea Stadium on April 18th against the Milwaukee Brewers. In May he won four straight game going 4-0 in the month. In the first three of those games he allowed just one run in 18 innings of work. He tossed one complete game while going into the 8th inning or beyond three times.

On May 20th he came to bat with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 4th inning facing Omar Dahl with the Mets down 1-0. He singled driving in the first two runs, in what turned out to be a 15-8 Mets win over the Chicago Cubs. Later in the year on August 7th, he helped his own caude & drove in two more Mets runs with a single in Houston, leading to a 6-5 win.

On June 25th he pitched a five hit shutout at Shea Stadium, striking out nine Pittsburgh Pirates. He won another three straight from there into July. On July 9th he pitched seven innings of shutout ball, to beat the AL New York team 2-0 in the subway series at Shea. On July 27th he pitched another complete game in the second game of a double header, beating the Montreal Expos. From there he went on another four game win streak throughout the month of August, topped off by an eight inning, three hitter against the Arizona Diamondback.

He was 13-7 entering September but had a rough 0-3 start to the September pennant race. On September 2nd he pitched into the 9th inning but took a tough 2-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. In his next start he pitched into the 8th inning but the Mets were shut out by Vicente Padilla & the Phillies. On September 23rd he beat the Phillies & then in his last start of the regular season, he pitched five shutout innings to beat the Montreal Expos at Shea Stadium.

He finished up the year at 15-10, second on the Mets staff to Al Leiter's 16 wins & tenth most wins in the NL. He struck out 151 batters, also second on the staff to Leiter’s 200 strike outs. Hampton led the club in ERA 3.10 (the 5th best in the NL) innings pitched (217) complete games (3) & one shutout. For the second year in a row he also allowed the fewest HRs per nine innings (0.414) in the National League. At the plate he hit .274 driving in 8 runs, leading all NL pitchers.



Post Season: In the NLDS he opened up the Series in San Francisco but gave up five runs taking the loss to the Giants. Hampton made up for it & secured his place in Mets history in the NLCS. In the series opener at St. Louis' Busch Stadium, Hampton pitched seven shutout innings, allowing just six hits while striking out four Cardinals. The Mets took the Opener 6-2. He saved his best outing of the year, for the pennant clinching Game #5 at Shea Stadium.

Hampton went the distance pitching a three hit complete game shutout, striking out eight Cardinals in front a wild sold out, Shea Stadium crowd. (centerfieldmaz was in attendance that historic night) It ranks as one of the best Mets post season pitching performances in the clubs history. He got the last out when Cardinals pinch hitter Rick Wilkins flew out to centerfielder Jay Payton. As the Mets celebrated, Hampton was lifted off the ground by Mike Piazza as the Mets advanced to the World Series. Hampton was voted the MVP of the NLCS.


In the World Series, he took the loss in Game #2 giving up four runs, on eight hits & five walks in six innings pitched of the 6-5 Mets loss. After the 2000 season he upset Met fans by signing with the Colorado Rockies.

The air in Colorado made him an even better hitter; he hit 10 HRs & batted over .300 in two seasons playing there. He won 14 games in the Rocky Mountains but lost 13 and had an ERA of 5.14. Next season he battled injuries and his ERA ballooned over six as he lost 15 games while only winning seven.

He was traded to the Atlanta Braves in 2003 and went 14-8 with a 3.84 ERA getting to another post season. In the NLDS he pitched two games taking a 5-1 loss in the final Game #5 to the Chicago Cubs. That season he won the gold Glove Award, breaking Greg Maddox record of 13 straight.

In 2004 he was 13-9 posting a 4.28 ERA and got no decisions in two games pitched in the NLDS against Houston. In 2005 he had arm trouble and needed Tommy John surgery that September. He missed the entire 2006 season rehabbing his arm. In 2007 he returned but then tore an oblique muscle and had to miss the rest of that season as well. In April 2008 he was to make a highly anticipated return, but while warming up he strained a pectoral muscle & was placed on the DL. He finally returned almost three years later, in July of 2008.


In his first start he allowed six runs to the Phillies in Philadelphia, exiting after four innings. In his next start he allowed four runs in five innings of work. On August 5th he earned his first win in nearly three years, beating the San Francisco Giants. He would go 4-5 with a 4.85 ERA for Atlanta in 2008.

In 2009 he signed with his old team in Houston, taking the role as the number two starter behind the Astros; Roy Oswalt. He went 7-10 with an ERA of 4.07. By the end of the season he needed rotator cuff surgery and missed most of 2010, returning in September with the Arizona D-backs.

In his 16 year career he was 148-115 (249th most wins all time) with a 4.06 ERA. He struck out 1387 batters (226th all time) with 901 walks (157th most all time) in 2268 innings pitched over 409 games. Hampton made 355 starts (183rd all time) with nine shut outs & 21 complete games. He has given up 200 HRs with 1024 earned runs (212th all time most). Hampton has thrown 75 wild pitches (210 all time) Hampton is the only pitcher to win five Silver Slugger Awards.

          1978-79 Edmonton Oilers Garnet "Ace" Bailey Jersey      Cache   Translate Page      
Garnet "Ace" Bailey first played for the Edmonton Oil Kings in junior hockey from 1964 to 1967, including a Memorial Cup championship in 1966.

He was drafted by the Boston Bruins in the 1966 NHL Amateur draft with the 13th overall pick and started his professional career with the Oklahoma City Blazers of the Central Hockey League followed by further seasoning with the Bruins minor league Hershey Bears in the American Hockey League in the 1968-69 season where he had a nice season with 56 points in 60 games. Bailey excelled in the playoffs with 14 points in 9 games as Hersey won the Calder Cup as AHL champions. He also found the time to make his NHL debut with the Bruins, seeing action in eight games during which he scored his first NHL goal on his way to six points. He even got his first taste of NHL playoff action in one postseason game for Boston.

The 1969-70 season saw him crack the Bruins lineup, appearing in 58 regular season games. While Bailey did not suit up for any of the Bruins playoff games, that season (perhaps due to injury) his name was included among those engraved on the Stanley Cup following the Bruins championship, capped off by Bobby Orr's famous cup winning overtime goal in Game 4.

His next season was split between the Boston and Oklahoma City before finally establishing himself as a full-time NHL regular in 1971-72 when he skated in 73 games for the Bruins as well as 13 playoff games, including scoring the game winning goal in Game 1 of the 1972 Stanley Cup Finals versus the New York Rangers, as Bailey got his name on the Stanley Cup for the second time.

Bailey's next three seasons in the NHL were ones of change, as the Bruins traded him to the Red Wings after 57 games of the 1972-73 season. Half way through the next season, Detroit sent Bailey to the St. Louis Blues. Once more Bailey was on the trading block, when St. Louis dealt him to the Washington Capitals after 49 games of the 1974-75 season despite Bailey having already set a career high with 41 points in 49 games for the Blues. Combined with the 17 points he scored in 22 game for the Capitals, his 58 points would remain the best offensive output of his 10 years in the NHL.

Washington proved to be a good fit of Bailey, and he would see action in 67 games in 1975-76 and 78 the following year, his second highest scoring season with 46 points.

Bailey Capitals

Bailey, who was known for his sense of humor once received a four-inch-manual from Capitals head coach Tom McVie, telling him how to get into condition. Bailey used the manual to prop up a beer keg in his bar. On the first day of training camp, according to theSan Francisco Chronicle, Bailey beat several other players in a footrace, and McVie said approvingly, "Ace, I can see you used your book this summer." Bailey replied, "Coach, I used it every day."

Another story relates how McVie once scheduled a practice for the squad at the ungodly hour of 4 AM. As the sleepy players arrived in their hotel lobby, Bailey, impersonating McVie, had already called and cancelled the bus scheduled to take them to the rink, which eventually led to the cancellation of the practice and some much needed additional sleep for the team.

After one more season in Washington, his fourth, Bailey's career would come full circle, as he would return to the scene of his junior hockey roots in Edmonton, this time with the Oilers of the WHA for 38 games where he would become a roommate and mentor a young Wayne Gretzky, becoming one of the few players to play with both Orr and Gretzky.

His playing days concluded with seven games with the CHL's Houston Apollos in 1979-80, before retiring to become their head coach, and a single game with the Wichita Wind of the CHL (while he was their head coach) in 1980-81.

His final NHL totals were 568 games played, 107 goals and 171 assists for 278 points.

Beginning in 1981, he worked as a scout for the Oilers from 1981 to 1994 and win five Stanley Cup rings during the Oilers dynasty from 1984 to 1990, which included his name engraved on the cup three of those times.

Bailey Gretzky Stanley Cup

Sadly, while working as the director of pro scouting for the Los Angeles Kings, Bailey was a passenger on United Airlines Flight 175 which was crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, killing all on board. The Ace Bailey Children's Foundation was established in his memory. To make a donation, simply follow this link.

Today's featured jersey is a 1978-79 Edmonton Oilers "Ace" Bailey jersey as worn during Bailey's only WHA season. The Oilers adopted this style jersey during their third WHA season of 1974-75 and used this version of the logo with the blue lettering on an orange background through their final WHA season of 1978-79. When the Oilers joined the NHL the following season, the logos on both the home and road jerseys were changed to blue letters on a white background, a higher contrast and much more pleasing combination.

Bonus Jersey: Today's bonus jersey is a Koho 2001-02 Los Angeles Kings Glen Murray jersey, which features the "AM" patch in memory of Ace Bailey and Mark Bavis, a fellow scout with the Kings who was also killed on board Flight 175 with Bailey. The jersey also is adorned with the 2002 NHL All-Star Game which was hosted by the Kings that season.

The Kings introduced this purple jersey as an alternate style to their white home and black road jerseys in 1999 and wore it for three seasons. At the time, the all the home jerseys in the NHL were branded as CCM, while the dark and alternate jerseys carried the Koho brand and the practice jerseys were tagged Jofa, as all three brands were part of the same company.

Later, in time for the 2002-03 season, the Kings flipped logos on their jerseys, making the crown logo seen here, the new primary logo for both their white and black jerseys, where it remains in use today, while the purple alternate jersey began to use the coat of arms logo (seen here on the shoulders as a secondary logo) through 2006-07 prior to the purple jersey being discontinued with the change to the new Reebok Edge jerseys, which dictated the temporary elimination of alternate jerseys.

          VIDEO Con gran atrapada de Springer los Astros completan barrida sobre los Tigres      Cache   Translate Page      

DETROIT. George Springer se lanzó para atrapar una pelota en la octava entrada, con lo cual preservó la ventaja de los Astros de Houston, quienes aseguraron una barrida de una serie de tres juegos, su primera en Comerica Park, al superar 5-4 el miércoles a los Tigres de Detroit.

Los Tigres tuvieron un hombre en primera con dos outs en la octava entrada, cuando el dominicano Dawel Lugo pegó una línea al jardín derecho. Springer se zambulló para atrapar la pelota. De haber fallado, la esférica se hubiera seguido de largo y habría entrado la carrera del empate.

Fue la decimotercera barrida de una serie en la temporada para los Astros, que han ganado 10 de sus últimos 11 encuentros. Houston comenzó con una ventaja de tres juegos sobre Oakland en la cima de la División Oeste de la Liga Americana.

Gerrit Cole (14-5) permitió dos carreras y tres imparables en cinco entradas. Entregó cuatro pasaportes y ponchó a nueve bateadores.


          Un rally de 10 carreras sentenció la victoria de los Atléticos sobre los Orioles; Laureano de 5-3      Cache   Translate Page      

BALTIMORE. Matt Olson disparó un jonrón durante un racimo de 10 carreras en la tercera entrada, durante la que los primeros 11 bateadores se embasaron, y los Atléticos de Oakland vapulearon el miércoles 10-0 a los Orioles de Baltimore, para hilvanar su sexto triunfo.

Oakland totalizó 10 hits y dos boletos durante su mejor inning del año. Olson aportó el batazo principal, de tres carreras ante Andrew Cashner (4-15) y tres diferentes jugadores aportaron un par de hits por cabeza.

Ello fue más que suficiente para que los Atléticos igualaran su mejor racha de la temporada. Están tres juegos debajo de Houston, el líder de la División Oeste de la Liga Americana.

Además, Oakland tiene una ventaja holgada en la lucha por el segundo boleto de comodín a los playoffs en la Liga Americana.

Daniel Mangden (7-6) resolvió cinco innings como relevista, sin aceptar hit, luego de ingresar en la segunda entrada por el abridor Liam Hendricks, quien tenía previsto laborar sólo un episodio.

Por los Atléticos, el dominicano Ramón Laureano de 5-3 con una anotada. El venezolano Franklin Barreto de 1-0.

Por los Orioles, el dominicano Jonathan Villar de 3-0. El venezolano Breyvic Valera de 1-0.

          A’s 10-run inning is all they need to top O’s, win sixth in a row      Cache   Translate Page      
BALTIMORE — What happens when a team that feasts against clubs with losing records meets the worst team in baseball? Something like this: The A’s sent 15 men to the plate in the third inning Wednesday night at Camden Yards and scored 10 runs, nine of them before the Orioles recorded an out. Baltimore managed one hit all night. The 10-0 victory was the A’s sixth win in a row as they kept pace with red-hot Houston, remaining three games back in the AL West. They gained a game on the Yankees to move a game back of the first AL wild-card spot. “A pretty remarkable inning,” manager Bob Melvin said. “For it to happen all in one inning is pretty unique.” At 89-57, Oakland is 32 games over .500 for the first time since Sept. 23, 2003.

          Do You Remember September?      Cache   Translate Page      
September is National Bourbon Heritage Month. That might not mean much to the members of the Teetotalism party but to the rest of us - The imbibers, the Bourbon enthusiasts, the distillers, and all the way to the casual Bourbon drinkers, it means plenty.

It’s a reason to celebrate from September and beyond. It’s an opportunity to invigorate old and new Bourbon lovers. Doesn’t matter if you stay home or hit the trail, National Bourbon Heritage Month can be enjoyed however, whenever or where ever you want.


History 101

National Bourbon Heritage Month was given to the imbibing public on August 2nd, 2007. Introduced by Kentucky Republican Senator Jim Bunning - it asks that anyone who appreciates Bourbon to celebrate that love with responsibility and respect throughout September. (This is where we raise a glass in honor of Senator Bunning.)

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Kentucky For Kentucky (@kentuckyforkentucky) on


Besides turning September into the *Fourth of July for Bourbon, his bill did two things - it solidified the creation, the culture, and the craft of the Bourbon industry as a proud chapter in the storybook of American history and it reinforced a 1964 Act of Congress that declared Bourbon "America's Native Spirit".

Drunk History

In 1964 (During a time when the government did things for and by the people.) the United States Government gathered together to form a perfect union of celebration and regulation. It was an Act made to protect and define what Bourbon was and where it was made.

You’ve passed History. Time to Party-

Celebrating National Bourbon Heritage Month can be as simple as raising a glass filled three fingers high with Bourbon or as adventurous as hitting the Bourbon trails with friends and family.

Happy Trails

Whether amateur or seasoned enthusiast, the Kentucky Bourbon Trail is not to be missed. A 14-distillery adventure with a focus on respecting the history and culture of Whiskey while visiting some of Bourbon’s Holy cities -Louisville, Bardstown, and Lexington. It’s an opportunity to light up a cigar, sit back, slip slowly and take in the stars while you listen to crackle of bonfires and tales of bootlegging.

Start at the start

Visit the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. From September 12th - 16th you can experience barrel making or sit in on a class that examines Bourbon’s base grains (Rye, Corn, Malted Barley, and Wheat). Get your hands and face messy with some delicious Kentucky BBQ while eating with distillers and Bourbon decision makers. Each night is filled with local KY bands to help you party like a Rock Star - Please note: Groupies are NOT included.

All Aboard!

As it’s mid-September, a trip to the KBF might be a bit last minute. And since Staycations are the rage, you could let the barrels come to you.

Presented by the four jewels in Beam Suntory’s crown -Maker’s Mark, Jim Beam, Knob Creek and Basil Hayden’s. The Bourbon Legends Boxcar Tour plans on making four stops until November 2018: Denver, Houston, Cleveland and New York City. Bourbon lovers who are interested in attending must RSVP 24 hours in advance.

It’s a Bourbon fueled Orient Express minus the mystery and Poirot's mustache. Pick your city, RSVP and hydrate!

The Weekend. No, not the singer!

Bourbon and Beyond - Towards the end of National Bourbon Heritage Month (September 22nd and 23rd) the city of Louisville throws a party. This is a 2-day festival celebrating the deep-rooted heritage of Bourbon in Louisville. This event is filled to the brim with top tier music acts, belt busting food and Bourbon industry legends - it could be considered Louisville’s Lollapalooza… or Bourbon’s Woodstock... or Kentucky’s Coachella.

To September and BEYOND!


Do you feel lucky, Pilgrim?

The Whiskey Classic takes place in October and is one for the books. Out in Santa Fe, NM or as the locals call The City Different. Spend a day in October tasting Bourbon, smoking cigars and experiencing the Wild West on a real Western movie set. Imbibe top notch Bourbon and food in the same place where Silverado, Lonesome Dove, and 3:10 to Yuma was filmed. It’s like a Fistful of Dollars but with Whiskey and less squinting.

Hello Mudder

If the heat of New Mexico is not your thing try a day at the races in Maryland. The Brew and Bourbon Classic host 60 Beers and Bourbons, award winning food trucks and classes on how to bet on the ponies at Laurel Park racetrack.

This Ain’t No Disco 

WhiskeyFest NYC. Yep, leave it to New York City to keep the party going. Well past the birthdays for Virgos and Libras, NYC gives you another chance to party like it’s Repeal Day in November. Whiskeyfest NYC is THE event to sip, chat, eat and mingle with Bourbon brand ambassadors, high end bartenders and distillers.

Home

Traveling for Spirit based adventures is fun but nothing beats being at home with good friends, a nice cigar and a few glasses of your favorite Bourbon. Sometimes, the best place to ring in National Bourbon Heritage Month is to host it yourself at home.

September is the time to raise a glass, tip a hat or take a knee to show some love for one of the finest members of the Liquid Holy Trinity. Please enjoy and if you have a favorite Bourbon adventure please feel free to share it with us.

*Please party responsibly and DO NOT play with fireworks while drinking.

          Chúng ta đang sống thế giới nào?      Cache   Translate Page      
Sắc đẹp, phải chăng, là do cặp mắt của người nhìn, như có người từng nói!

Còn quan điểm của mỗi người về thế giới mình đang sống là từ đâu ra, tạo hóa/bản chất hay giáo hóa/dưỡng dục (nature or nurture)? Và nó được định hình bởi yếu tố nào: kinh nghiệm sống, kiến thức, niềm tin (tôn giáo hay nhân bản) v.v…?


Hình minh họa.

Đó là câu hỏi không dễ trả lời. Và không rõ có thể có trả lời nào thỏa đáng không!

Một ly nước nửa đầy hay một ly nước nửa vơi? Tùy theo cái nhìn lạc/bi quan, tích/tiêu cực cũng như não trạng của mỗi người. Trong cùng một người mà có khi mỗi vấn đề và mỗi thời điểm cũng có thể khác nhau.

Người lạc quan, như cựu tổng thống Hoa Kỳ Barack Obama, vào năm 2016 cho rằng nếu có cơ hội được chọn thời điểm sinh ra làm người, ông sẽ chọn thời điểm này. Không phải 50 năm trước, không phải 50 năm nữa, mà ngay thời điểm này. Tuy ghi nhận có lắm thử thách lớn lao của thời đại, ông khẳng định chưa có thời đại nào trong lịch sử nhân loại được hòa bình, thịnh vượng và tiến bộ nhất như bây giờ [1].

Trái ngược với Obama, ứng viên Cộng Hòa Donald Trump cũng ngay vào lúc đó chỉ nhìn thấy một Hoa Kỳ hoàn toàn thua và thiệt, vì các vấn đề về di dân, thương mại, thuế, đạo Hồi, ngoại giao v.v… Trump đổ lỗi cho những chính sách thất bại của chính quyền Obama và trước đây, làm cho nước Mỹ trở nên bi đát như vậy, do đó khẩu hiệu “Làm cho Hoa Kỳ vĩ đại trở lại” nghe lọt lỗ tai không ít người.

Chủ đề của tạp chí Foreign Affairs số tháng 7/8 vừa qua có trình bày sáu bài, với bao quan điểm khác nhau, khi nhìn về thế giới chúng ta đang sống [2]. Thế giới hiện thực, cấp tiến, bộ lạc, Mác xít, kỹ thuật và hâm nóng nhìn vấn đề gần khác nhau hoàn toàn đưa đến cách kết luận vấn đề cũng hoàn toàn khác nhau.

Thế giới hiện thực (realist world)

Thế giới hiện thực nhìn nhận quyền lực và nhà nước quyết định tất cả.

Giáo sư lịch sử và bang giao quốc tế Stephen Kotkin cho rằng mỗi bá chủ thiên hạ (hegemon) cứ cho mình là cuối cùng, không còn ai khác nữa; nhưng thực tế thì mọi quốc gia đều trổi lên, chìm xuống, và cạnh tranh nhau mãi, và tiến trình đó đã quyết định số phận của thế giới [3]. Thời bây giờ cũng thế, chính trị cạnh tranh quyền lực ở tầm lớn sẽ tác động lên các sự kiện lớn, và kết quả cạnh tranh sẽ được quyết định bởi sức mạnh của các bên: từ nhân lực và tài lực cho đến khả năng quản trị quốc gia và hiệu quả của chính sách đối ngoại.

Theo Kotkin thì thế kỷ này phần lớn sẽ được quyết định bởi Hoa Kỳ và Trung Quốc trong việc quản lý nguồn lực và quan hệ của họ. Nhiều người tự thuyết phục rằng sự hội nhập toàn cầu chủ yếu là về kinh tế và các quan điểm tương đồng, và là tiến trình không thể tránh được. Chỉ có vài người, chẳng hạn như Samuel Huntington, chỉ ra rằng văn hóa là quan trọng hơn, và sự hội nhập chỉ làm nổi bật thêm sự khác biệt hơn là hòa tan nó, trong hay ngoài nước. Năm 2004, Huntington nhận xét giới tinh hoa Hoa Kỳ và công chúng có một khoảng cách khác biệt lớn về bản sắc dân tộc và vai trò của Hoa Kỳ trên thế giới; phần lớn giới tinh hoa ngày càng tách xa đất nước của họ, trong khi công chúng Hoa Kỳ thì lại vỡ mộng về chính quyền của mình. Ngược giòng lịch sử, từ cuối thế kỷ 19 đến thế kỷ 20, không giống như các nước Âu châu và Nhật Bản, Hoa Kỳ dành rất ít thời gian để áp đặt nền cai trị thuộc địa trực tiếp đối với các nước khác. Hoa Kỳ, thay vào đó, chọn phát huy quyền lợi của mình với các đồng minh tự nguyện, các định chế đa phương và tự do thương mại. Sự chọn lựa đó đến từ ý thức tư lợi (enlightened self-interest) hơn là lòng vị tha, và được yểm trợ bởi sức mạnh quân sự áp đảo. Khác với trường phái chủ nghĩa cấp tiến, Kotkin không nhìn nhận những định chế đa phương và các tiến trình của hệ thống hậu chiến là “trật tự quốc tế cấp tiến”, cái mà ông cho là cái nhìn ảo huyền của một số người, chứ thật ra nó là cơ chế để Hoa Kỳ tổ chức và phát triển vòng ảnh hưởng lớn lao của mình.

Kotkin nhận định độc tài thì hùng mạnh nhưng lại dễ bể, trong khi dân chủ thì dễ động lòng nhưng bền vững. Trung Quốc đang vươn lên trên nhiều mặt, với nền kinh tế khổng lồ và phóng chiếu sức mạnh của mình, cứng cũng như mềm, ở mọi hướng. Vấn đề chính hiện nay là liệu sự mở rộng vòng ảnh hưởng của Trung Quốc có đưa đến sự thay đổi trật tự quốc tế mà Hoa Kỳ đang lãnh đạo không? Và câu hỏi thực tế cần đặt ra là trên con đường như thế, liệu Trung Quốc sẽ dẫm nát một số quốc gia trên chặng đường đó vì nó có thể, và Hoa Kỳ phải chia sẻ lãnh đạo toàn cầu với Trung Quốc vì nó không có sự chọn lựa nào khác? Trong vị thế Hoa Kỳ, nếu chọn chiến lược chuyển tiếp từ hoạt động mạnh mẽ toàn cầu trên mọi mặt (như các chính sách trước đây) sang một số hoạt động chọn lọc chỉ để phục vụ quyền lợi quốc gia, thì sẽ được hoan nghênh trong nước, mặc dầu các chính trị gia và chuyên gia sẽ phản kháng.

Theo Kotkin, để các đấu sĩ ngày nay không bị mất đầu như các thế hệ trước của họ, bốn điều cần xảy ra trước sự biến đổi khôn lường của cuộc cách mạng công nghệ bốn. Một, các nhà làm chính sách Tây phương phải tìm ra những phương thức để đại đa số người dân của họ được hưởng lợi và ủng hộ cho một thế giới mở rộng và hội nhập. Hai, các nhà làm chính sách Trung Quốc phải bảo đảm sự trổi dậy của họ là hòa bình, bằng thỏa hiệp, hơn là cưỡng ép các quốc gia bên ngoài. Ba, Hoa Kỳ cần phải duy trì vị thế cân bằng chính xác giữa răn đe và đảm bảo mạnh mẽ đối với Trung Quốc, và tìm cách ổn định các vấn đề nội địa. Bốn, sau cùng, phép màu nhiệm cần đến đối với Đài Loan (vì theo Kotkin thì dù muốn hay không Đài Loan vẫn mang giá trị chiến lược trong mối quan hệ giữa Hoa Kỳ và Trung Quốc).

Thế giới cấp tiến (liberal world)

Thế giới cấp tiến nhìn nhận quy luật, tương thuộc và hợp tác quyết định tất cả.

Theo giáo sư G. John Ikenberry và Daniel Deudney thì hệ thống và trật tự quốc tế tự do sẽ tiếp tục tồn tại, mặc dầu sức mạnh tương xứng của Hoa Kỳ đã gia giảm [4]. Các thế lực đen tối, từ chủ nghĩa phi tự do, độc tài, dân tộc, bảo hộ, vòng ảnh hưởng, chủ nghĩa xét lại lãnh thổ đã không những biến mất mà còn trở lại gây ảnh hưởng. Trung Quốc và Nga đã làm tiêu tan mọi hy vọng chuyển hóa sang dân chủ, trong khi Hoa Kỳ và Anh, hai bảo hộ của trật tự quốc tế cấp tiến lại tự chọn thái độ tự huỷ. Tuy nhiên hai ông tin rằng chủ nghĩa cấp tiến trong đó nền dân chủ cấp tiến như là một hệ thống chính quyền, và nền trật tự cấp tiến như là một khung sườn định hình chính trị quốc tế, sẽ tiếp tục ngự trị. Lý do, theo hai ông, vì tính cách tương thuộc (interdependence). Khi sự tương thuộc về kinh tế, an ninh và môi trường càng gia tăng thì người dân và chính phủ khắp nơi sẽ phải làm việc với nhau để giải quyết vấn đề, nếu không tất cả sẽ bị tổn hại nghiêm trọng.

Hai giáo sư biện luận không có gì chắc chắn để bảo đảm rằng lịch sử sẽ kết thúc với sự chiến thắng của chủ nghĩa cấp tiến, nhưng điều chắc chắn là một trật tự thế giới lương thiện sẽ mang tính cấp tiến. Một thế giới mà có nhiều quốc gia tư bản có nền dân chủ cấp tiến sẽ hòa bình, thịnh vượng và tôn trọng nhân quyền. Những người cấp tiến hay bị phê bình là có những giả định quá lạc quan, lý tưởng, ngay cả không tưởng, về tiến trình lịch sử nhân loại. Trên thực tế tinh thần lạc quan của họ có điều kiện, họ công nhận có những thỏa hiệp bi thảm (không tránh được), và họ cũng để ý đến những khả năng có thể dẫn đến thảm họa ở tầng lớn. Giống như người hiện thực, người cấp tiến cũng ghi nhận rằng bản chất con người thường muốn có quyền lực, và do đó người cấp tiến vận động cho sự ràng buộc của hiến pháp và pháp luật. Nhưng khác với người hiện thực nhìn lịch sử như là sự lập đi lập lại, người cấp tiến là kẻ kế thừa gia sản của thời đại Khai sáng, của sự sáng tạo khoa học kỹ thuật, cái mà đưa đến bao nhiêu khả năng tiến bộ cũng như thảm hoạ cho nhân loại.

Chủ nghĩa cấp tiến chủ yếu là thực dụng. Người cấp tiến hiện đại ủng hộ các chính quyền dân chủ, hệ thống kinh tế dựa trên thị trường, và các định chế quốc tế không phải vì lý tưởng mà vì sự sắp xếp như thế sẽ phục vụ tốt hơn cho nhân loại, hơn tất cả những giải pháp khác. Chủ nghĩa cấp tiến cũng có khả năng thích ứng thực dụng và có thiên hướng đưa đến những sáng tạo định chế (institutional innovations) mang tính sống còn đối với các thử thách đang hiện ra, bao gồm trí tuệ nhân tạo, chiến tranh mạng và kỹ thuật di truyền.

Trên hết, chủ nghĩa cấp tiến có sức quyến rủ toàn cầu và vĩnh viễn bởi vì nó cam kết đối với nhân phẩm và tự do cá nhân. Nó soi sáng ý tưởng khoan dung, điều mà chắc chắn cần thiết trong một thế giới càng tương tác và đa dạng. Mặc dầu chủ thuyết này đến từ Tây phương, các giá trị của nó đã trở thành phổ quát, và những nhà vô địch ủng hộ nó bao gồm Mahatma Gandhi, Mikhail Gorbachev và Nelson Mandela. Mặu dầu chủ nghĩa đế quốc, nô lệ và kỳ thị chủng tộc đã làm xấu đi lịch sử Tây phương, chủ nghĩa cấp tiến đi đầu các nỗ lực, vừa hòa bình vừa chiến đấu, để cải tổ và chấm dứt các hành xử trên. Đến mức độ mà vòng cung lịch sử đã hướng đến công lý, đó là do những hoạt động và cam kết đạo đức của người cấp tiến và những liên minh của họ.

Hai giáo sư phân tích nguyên nhân đưa đến sự suy thoái của dân chủ và sự trồi dậy của chủ nghĩa dân túy trong thời gian qua. Lý do phần lớn là do sự bất bình đẳng kinh tế quá lớn, nhưng giải pháp cho các vấn đề này là sự cần thiết quay trở lại nền dân chủ cấp tiến. Chẳng hạn như áp dụng các chính sách dân chủ xã hội thể hiện trong New Deal, thông qua các luật thuế tiến bộ, và đầu tư nhiều hơn vào giáo dục và cơ sở hạ tầng. Nói cách khác, giải pháp cho các vấn đề của dân chủ cấp tiến là dân chủ cấp tiến nhiều hơn. Tóm lại, hai giáo sư kết luận chủ nghĩa cấp tiến, tự bản chất, có những hạt giống để cứu lấy chính nó.

Hai giáo sư cho rằng sau Thế Chiến II, các nền dân chủ cấp tiến đã hợp tác để tạo ra một trật tự mà phản ảnh quyền lợi chung của họ. Sau hơn bảy thập niên, mặt dầu có những điểm bất toàn của nó, nó đã bám rễ quá sâu, trong đó hàng trăm triệu người, nếu không phải là tỷ người, đã có những hoạt động và mong đợi nhắm vào các định chế và khuyến khích của trật tự này, cho nên không dễ gì thay đổi nó. Nếu nghĩ rằng một vài năm theo xu hướng mị dân thì quốc gia sẽ đột ngột thay đổi chủ nghĩa cấp tiến là điều không tưởng. Các xã hội tư bản dân chủ cấp tiến đã phát đạt và mở mang vì nó rất giỏi trong việc kích thích và vận dụng sáng tạo nhưng đồng thời giải quyết các ảnh hưởng quá đà của chính nó hay các yếu tố tiêu cực ngoại cuộc.

Hai giáo sư đã đi sâu phân tích các yếu tố lịch sử và hiện tại để biện minh chủ nghĩa cấp tiến sẽ trường tồn. Tính năng động của sự thay đổi liên tục và tính tương thuộc gia tăng đang ngày càng tăng tốc độ, từ vấn đề môi trường, vũ khí sinh học, chiến tranh mạng, đã làm cho mọi quốc gia phải dựa vào các quy định quốc tế để duy trì nền an ninh của mình, và chủ nghĩa tư bản toàn cầu phải dựa vào khả năng quản trị tài chánh và thương mại quốc tế. Ngay cả Trump mặc dầu có những lời nói và hành động trái ngược với xu hướng cấp tiến, trên thực tế vẫn tiếp tục nhiều chính sách của các vị tiền nhiệm; còn trong các vấn đề khác thì các quốc gia trong trật tự cấp tiến này đã nhận lãnh vai trò này, không cần đến Trump hay lãnh đạo từ Oval Office. Trong thời đại thương thuộc toàn cầu, ngay cả người hiện thực cũng phải là một người quốc tế (internationalist).

Tóm lại, nền dân chủ cấp tiến đã tồn tại và phát triển khi phải đối diện với bao thử thách lớn lao hơn, từ Đại Khủng khoảng đến Trục Quyền (Đức Ý Nhật) đến phong trào cộng sản quốc tế. Do đó có mọi lý do để tin là nó sẽ vượt qua thử thách kỳ này. Nhưng trên hết, sự lạc quan về chủ nghĩa cấp tiến dựa trên một sự thật đơn giản: các giải pháp của những vấn đề hôm nay là càng dân chủ và càng trật tự cấp tiến. Tương thuộc và hợp tác là đặc tính của nền chính trị thế giới. Qua tiến trình lịch sử, tiến hóa, khủng hoảng và thay đổi huyên náo là điều bình thường, và chủ nghĩa cấp tiến rất giỏi về mặt cưỡi trên các bão táp xáo trộn của chuyển động lịch sử. Theo hai giáo sư nhận định thì các chế độ phi tự do sẽ bị chôn vùi trong thời nguy biến trong khi chủ nghĩa cấp tiến sẽ chậm rãi tiến về phía trước.

Thế giới bộ lạc (tribal world)

Thế giới bộ lạc nhìn nhận bản sắc và chủng tộc quyết định tất cả.

Giáo sư luật Amy Chua cho rằng người Mỹ, giới phân tích cũng như các nhà làm chính sách của họ, không quan tâm hoặc không ghi nhận tầm trong trọng của chủ nghĩa bộ lạc trong chính trị quốc tế [5]. Họ chỉ chú tâm đến vai trò của ý thức hệ và kinh tế và có khuynh hướng nhìn nhà nước-quốc gia (nation-states) như là thành phần tổ chức quan trọng nhất. Làm như thế họ đánh giá không đúng về vai trò mà đặc tính của nhóm (group) đã ảnh hưởng đến cách hành xử của con người như thế nào. Họ bỏ qua dữ kiện quan trọng rằng tại nhiều nơi, bản sắc vẫn mang tầm quan trọng nhất - nơi mà người ta sẽ sẵn sàng sống chết vì nó - không phải là vấn đề quốc gia mà là chủng tộc, vùng, tôn giáo, giáo phái hoặc gia tộc, bộ lạc. Không nhìn thấy sức mạnh của bộ lạc sẽ ảnh hưởng không chỉ đến cách người Mỹ nhìn thế giới mà còn cách họ hiểu về chính xã hội của họ.

Chua trích dẫn cuộc nghiên cứu gần đây của đội nghiên cứu tâm lý đối với các em bé 4 tới 6 tuổi, chia thành hai đội đỏ và xanh. Các em bé nam và nữ này thể hiện một trí nhớ lệch lạc có hệ thống, chỉ nhớ những điều tích cực về nhóm của mình nhưng tiêu cực đối với nhóm khác. Các nhà nghiên cứu kết luận rằng sự nhận thức của trẻ em đối với các bạn khác là méo mó sâu rộng chỉ vì là thành viên của một nhóm xã hội. Các cuộc nghiên cứu khác đối với trẻ em - thành phần được cho là ngây thơ, không bị nhiều thành kiến cũng như thành thật hơn - đưa đến những kết luận rằng khi thấy nhóm của mình thành tựu thì nó làm cho trung tâm tưởng thưởng (reward centres) của bộ não con người được kích thích; ngay cả khi nhóm khác bị thất bại hay đau đớn thì cũng phản ứng như thế; và sự đồng cảm với người cùng nhóm, hay sự ác cảm đối với người khác nhóm, nhất là khi các nhóm đó đã từng thù nghịch hay không thích nhau từ lâu, đã tác động lên trẻ em ngay từ nhỏ.

Chua biện luận rằng bản sắc nhiều khi mang tính quyết định hơn ý thức hệ. Trường hợp điển hình là Chiến tranh Việt Nam. Lãnh đạo Hoa Kỳ đã đánh giá quá thấp về việc người Việt trong cả hai miền Nam và Bắc muốn được độc lập dân tộc, so với sự cam kết đối với ý thức hệ Mác. Trong khi đó, Hà Nội chấp nhận sự ủng hộ về kinh tế và quân sự từ Trung Quốc, là đồng minh tiện lợi lúc đó, nhưng mỗi đứa bé Việt Nam từ nhỏ đã học lịch sử rằng cha ông của họ đã chiến đấu và đã chết để giải phóng đất nước của họ từ sự đô hộ ngàn năm của Trung Quốc, bắt đầu từ năm 111 trước Công nguyên. Cuộc chiến biên giới giữa Việt Nam và Trung Quốc năm 1979 càng chứng tỏ bản sắc quyết định hơn ý thức hệ cộng sản. Tuy nhiên lãnh đạo Hoa Kỳ trong cuộc chiến Việt Nam không cân nhắc yếu tố này trong chính sách của mình.

Chua cũng đưa trường hợp của Afghanistan ra làm thí dụ cho thấy Hoa Kỳ cũng quên tầm quan trọng của bản sắc chủng tộc. Sau sự kiện 11 tháng 9, Hoa Kỳ đưa quân vào Afghanistan để tiêu diệt al Qaeda và lật để chế độ Taliban. Afghanistan là quốc gia có mối quan hệ phức tạp giữa các sắc tộc và bộ lạc. Hơn 200 năm, Pashtuns là sắc tộc lớn nhất chiếm vị thế áp đảo tại đây. Taliban không chỉ là một phong trào Hồi Giáo mà còn là phong trào chủng tộc. Pashtuns thành lập và chiếm đa số Taliban. Sau khi lật đổ Taliban năm 2001 chỉ trong vòng 75 ngày, Hoa Kỳ thành lập chính phủ đứng đầu là Hamid Karzai, người gốc Pashtuns, nhưng phần lớn các bộ chính trong chính phủ này đều là người gốc Tajiks. Người Pashtuns nghĩ họ bị gạt ra ngoài lề, cho nên mặc dầu nhiều người Pashtuns cũng thù ghét Taliban, ít ai trong họ sẵn sàng ủng hộ một chính phủ mà đặt quyền lợi của kẻ thù truyền kiếp của họ lên trên chính họ. 17 năm sau khi Hoa Kỳ xâm chiếm nước này, một cuộc chiến dài nhất của Hoa Kỳ, Taliban vẫn chiếm một phần lớn lãnh thổ của Afghanistan. Bây giờ tuy các giới khoa bảng và các nhà làm chính sách hiểu những phức tạp về chủng tộc tại Afghanistan, sự nhận thức này hơi trễ và cũng chưa mang lại ý nghĩa nhiều đối với chính sách tại đây.

Một trường hợp khác nữa là chiến tranh Iraq. Các kiến trúc gia và những người ủng hộ cuộc chiến Iraq không cân nhắc các yếu tố đã chia rẽ sâu sắc giữa các hệ phái theo Shiites, Sunnis và Kurds tại Iraq, tầm quan trọng chính yếu về sự trung thành đối với bộ lạc và gia tộc trong xã hội Iraq. Bởi vì họ quên một điều cụ thể “sự hiện hữu của một thiểu số áp đảo thị trường (market – dominant minority)”. Sunnis đã áp đảo nền chính trị của Iraq nhiều thế kỷ, đầu tiên dưới sự cai trị của Ottoman, và đặc biệt dưới thời Saddam Hussain. Trước khi Hoa Kỳ xâm chiếm Iraq, khoảng 15 phần trăm dân số Iraq là người Ả Rập Sunni thống trị nền kinh tế, chính trị và quân sự của nước này, trong khi phái Shiites chiếm đa số ở thành thị và nông thôn. Thay vì mang lại hòa bình và thịnh vượng cho Iraq, nền dân chủ non trẻ đã dẫn đến chiến tranh giáo phái, đưa đến sự hình thành nên cái gọi là Nhà nước Hồi Giáo IS/ISIS, một phong trào cực đoan phái Sunni nhằm tiêu diệt phái Shiite, những người bỏ đạo và cả người Tây phương vô đạo. Nhờ chính sách thay đổi 180 độ về sự quan tâm của quân lực Hoa Kỳ kể từ năm 2007 để họ được giáo dục hơn về các động lực phức tạp về giáo phái và sắc tộc tại quốc gia này nên đã mang lại những thành công đáng kể, kể cả sự gia giảm về bạo lực giữa các giáo phái và nạn nhân của quân đội Hoa Kỳ và Iraq.

Trong những năm gần đây, Hoa Kỳ, một quốc gia được xem là dân chủ cấp tiến và phần lớn không hiểu các suy nghĩ và hành xử kiểu hậu bộ lạc (post tribalism), nay cũng không còn miễn nhiễm nữa. Lần đầu tiên trong lịch sử Hoa Kỳ, người Mỹ da trắng đã gần như bị mất vị thế chiếm đa số tại quốc gia này. Cuộc nghiên cứu năm 2011 cho thấy hơn một nửa người Mỹ da trắng tin rằng “người da trắng thay thế người da đen thành nạn nhân chính của sự kỳ thị”. Khi các nhóm cảm thấy bị đe doạ, họ dễ trở thành phòng thủ hơn, hẹp hòi hơn và khoác áo chủ nghĩa bộ lạc hơn (ta với địch). Nó cũng đưa đến sự căng thẳng giữa da trắng với da đen, Thiên Chúa Giáo, Da Thái và Hồi Giáo, cấp tiến và bảo thủ v.v…

Nhưng có một nguyên nhân khác dẫn đến căn bệnh chủ nghĩa bộ lạc tại Hoa Kỳ ngày nay. Lịch sử Hoa Kỳ trước đến nay không có chuyện “một thiểu số áp đảo thị trường”. Phần lớn đất nước này do đa số người da trắng tương đối thống nhất nhau ảnh hưởng một cách áp đảo về kinh tế, chính trị và văn hóa. Nhưng giờ đây, sự thịnh vượng của Hoa Kỳ tập trung vào một thiểu số nhỏ sống dọc các bờ biển, và họ chiếm phần lớn Wall Street, truyền thông và Thung lũng Silicon (Valley). Tuy họ không phụ thuộc vào bất kỳ một chủng tộc nào, họ có những nét văn hóa riêng biệt, họ chia sẻ các giá trị phổ quát như chủ nghĩa thế tục, đa văn hóa, chấp nhận đa nguyên giới tính, ủng hộ di dân và nền chính trị cấp tiến. Họ được xem là không quan tâm hay ngay cả đối nghịch với quyền lợi đất nước. Chua biện luận Trump biết sử dụng các yếu tố này, sự bất mãn của người dân nói chung và người Mỹ da trắng nói riêng, tuyên bố “phải lấy lại nước mình” hoặc “làm cho nước Mỹ vĩ đại trở lại”.

Chua kết luận rằng một cách để thoát khỏi hoàn cảnh chia rẽ này là phải giải quyết cả hai vấn đề kinh tế lẫn văn hóa. Hàng trăm năm qua, cơ hội kinh tế đã nâng cao nấc thang xã hội giúp cho Hoa Kỳ hội nhập thành công mọi người khác thuộc mọi sắc tộc nhau hơn tất cả các quốc gia khác. Cho nên sự sụp đổ của cơ hội thăng tiến đó nên được xem là một vấn đề cấp bách của quốc gia. Trên bình diện thế giới cũng như tại Hoa Kỳ, sự đoàn kết sẽ không tự nhiên đến mà phải bằng sự chăm chỉ, lãnh đạo gan đạ và ý chí tập thể.

Thế giới Mác (Marxist world)

Thế giới Mác xít nhìn nhận phân chia đồng đều và bình đẳng vật chất quyết định tất cả.

Kể từ năm 1967, thu nhập trung bình của 60 phần trăm dân số Hoa Kỳ đã trì trệ mặc dầu sự thu nhập và giàu có của những người giàu nhất đã gia tăng. Robin Varghese nhận xét rằng Mác tin tưởng cách mạng sẽ đến đối với các nền kinh tế tư bản phát triển nhất, nhưng không, nó lại đến với các quốc gia chậm phát triển hơn như Nga và Trung Quốc [6]. Giữa thế kỷ 20, các nước Tây Âu và Hoa Kỳ đã học cách quản lý sự bất ổn và bất công, đặc trưng của nền tư bản thời Mác. Tuy nhiên, hơn ai hết, Mác hiểu rõ cơ chế đã làm suy thoái chủ nghĩa tư bản, và các vấn đề đã mọc ra khi chính quyền không tích cực giải quyết nó, như đã thấy trong 40 năm qua. Do đó Varghese cho rằng chủ nghĩa Mác không quá cố mà vẫn còn cắt nghĩa được các vấn đề ngày hôm nay.

Varghese phân tích áp lực của giới thương gia là cần tích luỹ vốn liếng trong điều kiện cạnh tranh của thị trường, như sau. Một, những người công nhân luôn nhận lấy phần ít hơn về mình so với những gì họ đóng góp để tạo ra kết quả, đưa đến sự bất công và bần cùng. Hai, sự cạnh tranh giữa các nhà tư bản để giảm chi, như lương công nhân, bắt buộc họ phải nghĩ đến khoa học kỹ thuật để có thể giảm bớt sức lao động. Các kỹ thuật này sẽ loại trừ một số việc, làm cho một thành phần xã hội vĩnh viễn bị mất hoàn toàn hay một phần việc làm. Ba, Mác cho rằng sự cạnh tranh gây gắt sẽ dẫn đến sự tập trung và sự lớn mạnh của một số doanh nghiệp, và các doanh nghiệp có nhiều lợi nhuận hơn sẽ loại trừ các doanh nghiệp nhỏ hơn, và càng như thế càng cạnh tranh và càng hiện đại về kỹ thuật, đưa đến nhiều thặng dư hơn. Tuy nhiên các thặng dư này cũng không được chia đồng đều, làm cho hai điều một và hai nói trên gia tăng.

Nhưng Mác đã đánh giá thấp sức mạnh của nỗ lực chung (của chế độ tư bản) để cải tổ chính trị. Và Mác cũng sai lầm về khả năng của nền kinh tế tư bản trong việc thỏa mãn nhu cầu của con người, ít nhất là về mặt vật chất.

Đối với các nước phát triển, từ năm 1948 đến 1973, lương bổng gia tăng song song với năng suất, nhưng kể từ năm 1973, năng suất gia tăng gần 75 phần trăm, trong khi mức lương thật sự chỉ tăng dưới 10 phần trăm. Đối với 60 phần trăm gia đình, lương bổng không thay đổi gì đáng kể. Và đây chính là lý do làm cho Mác hiện hữu trở lại, như đã tiên đoán được diễn tiến của chủ nghĩa tư bản. Nói cách khác, tuy chủ nghĩa tư bản mang lại sự giàu có và sự phát triển khoa học kỹ thuật chưa từng thấy trước đây, nó không thể đáp ứng được nhu cầu của toàn xã hội.

Theo Varghese thì Mác biện luận rằng vấn đề không phải là giới hạn về vật chất mà là chính trị và xã hội: sự sản xuất được sắp xếp theo quyền lợi của giai cấp tư bản hơn là cho toàn xã hội; ngay cả khi cá nhân các nhà tư bản và công nhân suy nghĩ và hành động hợp lý, cả hệ thống lại phi lý. Khi nhu cầu sản xuất gia tăng, giới tư bản muốn đầu tư nhiều hơn vào khoa học kỹ thuật để gia tăng năng xuất, gia giảm tiền lương cho công nhân. Trong vài thập niên qua, những người dưới bằng cấp trung học chiếm tỷ lệ dưới 50 phần trăm lao động. Với kỹ nghệ tự động hóa và trí tuệ nhân tạo, tất cả các việc này đều có thể bị xóa sạch trong vài thập niên tới. Theo tổ chức OECD thì có đến 14 phần trăm, tức 60 triệu, công việc trong các quốc gia này có thể được tự động hóa. Theo công ty tư vấn McKinsey thì 30 phần trăm của mọi thời gian làm việc toàn cầu có thể được tự động hóa. Những công nhân này sẽ làm gì, sẽ được phân phối trong xã hội như thế nào, thì chưa ai biết được. Theo tiến trình của 50 năm qua gợi ý thì các công nhân này sẽ không được thu nhận vào lực lượng lao động nếu số phận của họ được quyết định bởi thị trường. Thêm vào đó, tiến trình thay đổi do khoa học kỹ thuật mang lại sẽ đưa đến sự tập trung thị trường (market concentration), với những thương nghiệp ngày càng lớn mạnh sẽ áp đảo sản xuất. Mác tiên đoán một thế giới không phải độc quyền mà là độc quyền cạnh tranh, trong đó những kẻ mạnh đang hiện hữu sẽ thụ hưởng lợi nhuận, những kẻ yếu hơn sẽ vất vả để tồn tại, và những kẻ mới vào sẽ phải nỗ lực sáng tạo để chiếm dần thị trường. Các thương nghiệp lớn có lợi thế hơn, về sáng chế cũng như mạng lưới sẵn có, mua và sát nhập các thương nghiệp nhỏ, hay sa thải công nhân khi cần để gia tăng cạnh tranh v.v… Từ năm 1982 đến nay, sáu lĩnh vực chiếm 80 phần trăm nhân công tại Hoa Kỳ (tài chánh, sản xuất, dịch vụ, bán lẻ, bán sỉ, và tiện ích và giao thông) ngày càng tập trung cạnh tranh. Khi các đại thương nghiệp như Amazon, Apple, FedEx chiếm áp đảo địa hạt của mình tại các nền kinh tế Tây phương, công nhân bị thiệt thòi nhiều nhất.

Sự thách thức lớn nhất đối với quan điểm của Mác là sự hình thành và phát triển của nhà nước phúc lợi (welfare states) ở Tây phương vào giữa thế kỷ 20, phần lớn là do các đảng dân chủ xã hội đại diện giới công nhân. Kiến trúc sư trí tuệ John Maynard Keynes là nhân vật chính của các phát động này. Ông biện luận rằng hoạt động kinh tế không phải được điều khiển bởi quyết định đầu tư của giới tư bản mà chủ yếu là sự tiêu thụ của người dân thường. Ảnh hưởng của Keynes lên nền kinh tế và chính trị rất lớn, giúp cho các đảng chính trị tả lẫn hữu điều chỉnh chính sách, đạt được hiệu năng, công bằng và mọi người đều có việc (full employment), điều mà Mác không thể tưởng tượng có thể xảy ra. Tuy nhiên từ thập niên 1970 trở đi, các chính phủ này gặp nhiều khó khăn trong việc vượt qua các giới hạn của chủ nghĩa tư bản, một bên là công việc đầy đủ cho mọi người, nhưng lực lượng lao động đến từ nó đã dẫn đến sự giảm sút lợi nhuận. Varghese cho rằng về lâu dài, quyền lợi kinh tế của tư bản đã thắng cung cách tổ chức chính trị của người dân.

Giải pháp cho các vấn đề phức tạp và đầy thử thách trên là đầu tiên ghi nhận sự giới hạn của chính trị trong thời đại vàng son của chủ nghĩa tư bản, bao gồm sự kết hợp của các công đoàn mạnh, sự quản trị cung cầu theo chủ thuyết của Keynes, chính sách tiền tệ lỏng lẻo, và sự quản lý vốn, sẽ không thể nào dẫn đến xã hội công bằng trong chủ nghĩa tư bản mãi được. Thử thách của ngày hôm nay là tìm ra những đường nét chính của nền kinh tế hỗn hợp mà đã đem lại những kết quả đáng kể trong thời đại vàng son của chủ nghĩa tư bản như nói trên, và thêm vào đó khởi động cho sự bình đẳng về phái tính và sắc tộc. Nói cách khác, nó cần sự sắp xếp định chế mới được hỗ trợ bởi các hình thức chính trị mới.

Thế giới kỹ thuật (Tech world)

Thế giới kỹ thuật nhìn nhận cách mạng công nghệ, nhất là trí tuệ nhân tạo, quyết định tất cả.

Theo Drum thì tiên đoán tương lai ra sao rất khó, thôi thì nhìn về quá khứ để tìm giải thích [7]. Thế kỷ 19 là bình minh của nền dân chủ cấp tiến. Nhưng nó cũng là thế kỷ của đế quốc và thực dân Tây phương. Nó cũng bắt đầu cuộc chiến tranh toàn diện. Thế lực tôn giáo đi xuống trong khi chủ nghĩa dân tộc đi lên. Và nó cũng bất đầu thời đại của bình đẳng. Phụ nữ đòi bình quyền tại Seneca Falls, New York, và Tân Tây Lan là quốc gia đầu tiên cấp quyền sử dụng lá phiếu bầu cử. Anh cấm buôn nô lệ, Hoa Kỳ giải phóng nô lệ và Nga trả tự do cho nông nô.

Dân chủ, chủ nghĩa tư bản, chủ nghĩa thực dân, chiến tranh hiện đại, chủ nghĩa dân tộc, và quyền bình đẳng đã đưa đến bao hệ quả, và lý do ra đời của hàng ngàn cuốn sách về các vấn đề này. Nhưng theo Kevin Drum thì tất cả những điều nêu trên không quan trọng. Điều quan trọng nhất của địa chính trị trong thế kỷ 19 là cuộc Cách mạng Công nghệ. Không có nó thì sẽ không có giai cấp trung lưu, như thế không có áp lực để dân chủ hóa. Sẽ không có cuộc cách mạng tư bản vì các nhà nước nông nghiệp không cần đến nó. Sẽ không có thực dân hóa ở tầm lớn bởi vì giới hạn của sự thèm muốn nguyên liệu thô đối với các quốc gia phi kỹ nghệ. Sẽ không có chiến tranh toàn diện nếu không có kỹ nghệ sản xuất thép và độ chính xác rẻ. Và nếu thế giới phần lớn vẫn ở trong trạng thái văn hóa và kinh tế chủ yếu dựa trên nền nông nghiệp sinh tồn truyền thống, rất có thể là nền nô lệ sẽ không chấm dứt và nữ quyền sẽ không bắt đầu.

Các yếu tố chính tác động ở thời đại này là động cơ hơi nước, lý thuyết vi trùng, điện và xe lửa. Vào năm 1800, không ai biết tương lai địa chính trị của thế kỷ 19 sẽ như thế nào, nhưng nó đã được chuyển động trước đó chín thập niên khi Thomas Newcomen đã chế tạo thành công động cơ sử dụng hơi nước đầu tiên. Drum cũng tin rằng các thế hệ người máy tiếp theo sẽ tác động lên tiến trình lịch sử nhân loại trong thế kỷ 21. Kết quả cuộc cạnh tranh và đối đầu giữa hai cường quốc Hoa Kỳ và Trung Quốc sẽ được định đoạt khi một bên thắng được trí tuệ nhân tạo. Để đạt đến đó, Drum cho rằng máy vi tính cần phần cứng mạnh như bộ não con người (hardware) và phần mềm có khả năng suy nghĩ (software). Hiện tại bộ óc con người có thể tính từ 10 đến 100 petaflops (bằng một triệu tỷ, tức 10 luỹ thừa 15, tính toán một giây), và sức mạnh của máy vi tính hiện nay cũng tương đương như thế. Nhưng một cái máy siêu vi tính như thế chiếm bằng một căn phòng, tốn hơn 200 triệu, và tiền điện mỗi năm tốn 5 triệu đô la. Vấn đề là làm sao máy nhỏ hơn và rẻ hơn. Nghiên cứu về máy tính lượng tử hiện nay nằm trong mục tiêu đó. Các nhà chuyên về trí tuệ nhân tạo AI cho rằng có 50 phần trăm cơ hội là AI sẽ thực hiện được tất cả các hoạt động của con người vào 2060, trong khi giới AI Á Đông thì cho rằng có thể hiện thực khoảng năm 2045.

Các nhà nghiên cứu này không nghĩ rằng các máy móc này chỉ làm được các việc thường ngày thôi, mà nó còn có thể nấu burger, viết tiểu thuyết và thực hiện giải phẫu. Nó sẽ làm nhanh hơn, không bao giờ biết mệt, sẽ cập nhật kiến thức thế giới mới nhất trong vòng tích tắc, và có sức mạnh phân tích hơn bất cứ một cá nhân nào. Hiện nay thì chưa có vẻ gì sẽ đạt được kết quả như thế, nhưng trng vòng vài thập niên tới, máy robot sẽ làm cho hàng triệu người mất việc.

Drum cho rằng mấu chốt vấn đề là liệu Trung Quốc, trong vòng 20 năm tới, đạt được kỹ nghệ AI tốt nhất không? Nếu được, họ có thể trở thành bá quyền, nếu họ muốn. Nếu không thể thì họ sẽ không được.

Còn vấn đề khủng bố thánh chiến? Nó sẽ trở thành nạn nhân của AI. Những máy bay không người lái hiện tại (drone) đã đẩy lùi các nhóm khủng bố này, nói gì đến các máy được điều khiển bởi AI trong tương lai. Không có tổ chức nào với kỹ thuật kém có thể tồn tại được. Chiến tranh trong tương lai chủ yếu là do giữa máy móc với nhau. Nhiều công việc sẽ mất vì tự động hóa, kể cả lái xe truck. Phân tích của công ty PwC vào năm 2017 cho hay có đến 38 phần trăm công việc tại Hoa Kỳ có nguy cơ bị tự động hóa vào đầu thập niên 2030. Vào thập niên 2040, các nhà nghiên cứu phỏng đoán các máy vi tính sẽ có thể tự thực hiện nghiên cứu công trình toán học mới, giải phẫu, viết tiểu thuyết bán chạy nhất và có thể làm bất cứ công việc nào đòi hỏi khả năng nhận thức như trên. Không như cuộc Cách mạng Công nghệ đầu tốn gần 100 năm để chuyển động, lần này nó chỉ mất một hai thập niên, và AI sẽ là kỹ nghệ mang lại lợi nhuận nhiều nhất so với tất cả các thứ khác.

Điều này có hệ quả gì đối với chính trị? Theo Drum thì vai trò của các chính quyền hiện tại là quản lý và kiểm soát nền kinh tế cho quyền lợi chung của toàn thể người dân. Cho nên nền chính trị trong tương lai là chính quyền có khả năng sử dụng sức mạnh của AI cho đa số dân chúng. Những người theo chủ nghĩa Mác thì đã có lời giải: để robot kiểm soát phương tiện sản xuất, rồi phân chia chiến lợi phẩm cho cho mọi người hưởng theo nhu cầu của họ. Nền dân chủ cấp tiến cũng sẽ có cơ hội nếu lãnh đạo của họ nhìn nhận vấn đề một cách nghiêm túc, tìm cách làm cho chủ nghĩa tư bản thích ứng với một thế giới mà trong đó việc sản xuất hàng hóa tách biệt với công việc (lao động). Điều đó có nghĩa kìm chế sức mạnh của tài phiệt, tái suy nghĩ khái niệm thế nào là một tập đoàn, và chấp nhận một mức độ bình đẳng nào đó về phân phối hàng hóa và dịch vụ.

Drum ghi nhận hai thử thách lớn nhất của thế kỷ 21 là nạn thất nghiệp lớn do AI mang lại, và thay đổi khí hậu do nhu cầu năng lượng. Với kỹ thuật tân tiến hiện nay, gió và năng lượng mặt trời là lời giải cho năng lượng sạch. Nhưng cần phải sản xuất ở tầm lớn. Robot rẻ và khôn, tức có AI, sẽ là lời giải. Chủ nghĩa bộ lạc không còn quan trọng nữa. Ai quan tâm đến bản sắc nếu công việc đều do máy móc làm ra? Dân chủ cấp tiến sẽ còn hiện hữu nếu nó biết cách giải quyết nạn thất nghiệp lớn so với các hình thức chính quyền khác. Tôn giáo cũng sẽ gặp nhiều khó khăn với thế giới đầy máy móc như thế. Lịch sử chứng minh sự đói kém về kinh tế ở tầm lớn đem lại ít hơn những cải tổ tiến bộ sâu sắc so với các cuộc cách mạng và chiến tranh bạo động. Drum cho rằng điều quan trọng là phải hiểu và nghĩ đến cách đối phó tốt nhất đối với những gì sẽ xảy ra trong thời gian tới.

Thế giới hâm nóng (warming world)

Thế giới hâm nóng nhìn nhận thay đổi khí hậu và hợp tác toàn cầu quyết định tất cả.

Nền dân chủ toàn cầu đang xuống dốc, sự phục hồi kinh tế không làm cho lương bổng người dân Tây phương tăng lên đáng kể, và sự trổi dậy của Trung Quốc đe doạ quyền lực của Hoa Kỳ, có nguy cơ đưa đến cuộc chiến tranh khủng khiếp. Tuy thế, đối với Joshua Busby, không có đe doạ nào trong thế kỷ 21 có thể so sánh bằng hâm nóng địa đầu [8]. Tác động của khí hậu trái đất đòi hỏi sự chú tâm và nguồn lực, và sẽ có ảnh hưởng lớn lao lên nền kinh tế toàn cầu và quan hệ quốc tế hơn bất cứ một trọng lực nào khác trên thế giới hiện nay.

Hiện tại độ nóng bề mặt trái đất là trên 1.2 độ Celsius so với trước thời Cách mạng Công nghệ. Giới khoa học gia đồng thuận với nhau rằng nhiệt độ gia tăng cao nhất để tránh thay đổi khí hậu là 2 độ C. Sẽ không có khác biệt bao nhiêu giữa gia tăng 2 độ C so với 3 hay 4 độ. Khi khí hậu gia tăng, sự phân tán hiện tượng khí hậu sẽ chuyển đổi. Các trận lụt mà trước đây 100 năm xảy ra bây giờ sẽ xảy ra 50 hay 20 năm. Các trận mưa vũ bão như tại Hawaii đầu năm nay với 50 inches trong vòng 24 tiếng đồng hồ có thể diễn ra thường xuyên hơn. Các kiểu thời tiết mới này sẽ gây ra các xáo trộn xã hội và chính trị, đưa đến các ảnh hưởng lên địa chính trị. Mực nước biển dâng, các vùng đất trồng trột chết, các trận bão và lụt khổng lồ sẽ làm cho một số quốc gia không thể sống được nữa. Những thay đổi này sẽ thử nghiệm hệ thống quốc tế hiện nay những cách thức mới và khó tiên đoán.

Theo Busby, các đe doạ mang tính lịch sử toàn cầu đòi hỏi mức độ hợp tác mang tính lịch sử toàn cầu. Nếu nhân loại đối diện thành công với vấn đề này, đó là vì lãnh đạo biết pha trộn trật tự toàn cầu với ý thức về mục đích chung và ghi nhận sự thay đổi sâu sắc về vấn đề phân chia quyền lực. Trung Quốc và Hoa Kỳ phải làm việc chặt chẽ với nhau và với các tác nhân khác, các chính quyền trực thuộc các quốc gia, cũng như các công ty và các tổ chức phi chính phủ.

Trong 17 năm được ghi nhận có bằng chứng nóng nhất thì 16 năm là từ năm 2001 đến nay. Nhiều kiểu mẫu khí hậu rất lạ diễn ra khắp nơi, các khoa học gia nhận định có cái liên quan đến thay đổi khí hậu, có cái không rõ lắm. Mùa thay đổi. Hạn hán xảy ra khi các nhà khí tượng học trông đợi mưa. Thiếu mưa đưa đến nguy cơ cháy rừng, như đã thấy tại tiểu bang California năm ngoái (lẫn năm nay). Khi mưa, nó mưa ào ạt cùng lúc, như đã thấy ở Houston qua trận cuồng phong Harvey. Khi mực nước biển gia tăng và bão gia tăng mạnh mẽ hơn, các biến cố mà từng được xem là mực nước cao bình thường sẽ gây lụt cho các hạ tầng cơ sở ven biển, như đã xảy ra ở Miami trong những năm gần đây. Điều đó đưa đến nhu cầu gắn các hệ thống thiết bị bơm nước mưa với trị giá hàng trăm triệu đô la.

Đến giữa thế kỷ này, mực nước biển gia tăng cao đến độ nó có thể phá hoại vùng đất nông nghiệp và nước uống ở nhiều quốc gia hải đảo thấp so với mặt nước biển, làm cho những nơi đó không thể sống được lâu nữa trước khi nó bị ngập dưới nước. Các biến chuyển này sẽ thay đổi nền chính trị toàn cầu một cách sâu sắc. Các quốc gia như Trung Quốc và Hoa Kỳ có dân số lớn và hạ tầng cơ sở giá trị nhưng dễ bị nguy hại đối với thay đổi khí hậu. Các chính quyền này sẽ phải sử dụng đến các phương tiện quân sự để cứu người và tái xây dựng các thị trấn và thành phố bị tàn phá. Trong năm 2017, ba trận bão lớn đánh phá Hoa Kỳ liên tiếp, và các cơ quan dân vệ phòng chống thiên tai phải cần được hậu thuẫn của quân đội để ngăn ngừa tổn thất nhân mạng tầm lớn. Hàng chục ngàn vệ binh quốc gia đã được điều động để cứu người, cung cấp về tiếp tế, tái thiết các dịch vụ căn bản và pháp luật. Tổng phí đối với các cơn bão này và các trường hợp cấp cứu khác liên quan đến thiên tai trong năm 2017 thôi đã lên đến 300 tỷ đô la.

Trung Quốc cũng có các vấn đề riêng của nó. Dọc ven biển phía nam, những thành phố như Quảng Châu và Thượng Hải, dễ bị lụt lội. Ở phía bắc, trung tâm công nghiệp của quốc gia, các vùng này thường bị thiếu nước, ảnh hưởng đến 500 triệu người. Trong 25 năm qua, 28 ngàn con sông tại Trung Quốc đã biến mất. Giải quyết vấn nạn lớn như thế không rẻ. Một dự án chuyển nước từ nam lên bắc tốn ít nhất 48 tỷ đô la, và mặc dầu chưa hoàn tất, Trung Quốc cho rằng họ đã cải thiện được an ninh nước và 50 triệu người được hưởng lợi. Đối với những nơi bị lũ lụt, Trung Quốc đang nghiên cứu các thành phố hút nước nơi có thể gia tăng thoát nước tự nhiên.

Hoa Kỳ và Trung Quốc là hai quốc gia giàu có nên có thể chịu đựng tốn kém đối với các thiên tai này. Những quốc gia khác thì vất vả hơn, tổn thất về nhân mạng và vật chất nhiều hơn so với khả năng họ có thể gánh chịu. Từng cơn bão tuy gây thiệt hại đáng kể nhưng người ta có thể vực lại được. Còn thay đổi khí hậu thì nó gây thiệt hại lâu dài hơn. Trong khi một số quốc gia thì tràn đầy nước, những nước khác thì lại thiếu nước trầm trọng. Năm 2011 Somalia sau bao nhiêu thập niên chiến tranh lại hứng chịu hạn hán và tiếp theo nạn đói đưa đến 260 ngàn tử vong. Thay đổi khí hậu, qua gia tăng nhiệt độ và chuyển đổi kiểu mưa, làm cho nhiều vùng không đủ mưa hoặc mưa bất thường, ảnh hưởng đến mùa màn và lượng nước cần thiết cho nhu cầu con người. Đối với một số quốc gia, khi hiệu năng nông nghiệp bị giảm sút và các nguy cơ khí hậu khác sẽ làm cho người dân từ nông thôn chuyển đến thành thị hay sang qua biên giới quốc gia khác. Điều này sẽ ảnh hưởng sâu sắc lên nền chính trị khắp nơi. Thay đổi khí hậu sẽ trắc nghiệm các hệ thống phản ứng hiện nay về nhân đạo và thiên tai, cái đang gặp nhiều thách thức quá sức đối với các xung đột hình như không chấm dứt tại Somalia, South Sudan, Syria và Yemen.

Thay đổi khí hậu sẽ làm cho quan hệ quốc tế càng thêm căng thẳng. Sông Mekong là một thí dụ. Trong sáu quốc gia sử dụng chung con sông này, Ủy hội Sông Mekong được thành lập để giải quyết các tranh chấp nhưng Trung Quốc không muốn trở thành một thành viên dù là quốc gia lớn nhất và xây các đập ảnh hưởng nặng nề nhất ở thượng nguồn đối với các quốc gia ở hạ nguồn. Sự tranh chấp về lượng chảy của con sông này trở nên tệ hơn khi mà hạn hán trong vùng trở nên thường xuyên hơn. Khi hạn hán xảy ra ảnh hưởng đến mùa màng, giá cả lúa mì hay ẩm thực có nguy cơ gia tăng toàn cầu. Tại Ai Cập, khi nạn lạm phát giá cả ẩm thực hàng năm tăng lên 19 phần trăm năm 2011, nó giúp gia tăng các cuộc biểu tình lật đổ tổng thống Hosni Mubarak.

Để đáp ứng với các điều kiện khí hậu thay đổi, chính phủ có thể ban hành vô số các chính sách có khả năng gây tranh cãi. Cấm không cho xuất cảng các nguyên liệu qúy, mua đất ở nước ngoài, bắt sử dụng nhiên liệu sinh học, làm luật bảo vệ rừng, và hàng ngàn sự chọn lựa khác sẽ tạo ra kẻ thắng người thua và gia tăng sự căng thẳng trong nội địa và quốc tế. Thay đổi khí hậu sẽ bao gồm chuỗi vấn đề khác nhau, từ vận chuyển, năng lượng, xây cất, nông nghiệp, và bao địa hạt khác, và các ảnh hưởng tổng hợp của nó lên thành phố, sản xuất ẩm thực, và cung cấp nước uống sẽ là những thử thách khủng khiếp cho địa cầu này. Busby cho rằng với vấn đề ở tầm lớn như thế này, nó cần sự phối hợp và hợp tác giữa Hoa Kỳ và Trung Quốc để cùng nhau giải quyết. Còn nếu cạnh tranh chống đối nhau toàn diện thì tất cả đều bị thiệt hại. Sự hợp tác giữa các thỏa thuận quốc tế, mạng lưới tổ chức và những người dốc tâm tìm ra các giải pháp cụ thể là một cơ hội tốt nhất để tránh một thiên tai thay đổi khí hậu khủng khiếp đối với nhân loại.

Vài kết luận

Sáu quan điểm nêu trên chỉ là tiêu biểu, không phải là tất cả. Bên trong mỗi trường phái của các nhãn quan này đều có những nhận định và kết luận khác nhau, một cách sâu sắc. Ngoài sáu quan điểm này còn bao nhiêu lý thuyết và ý thức hệ khác nhau, làm cho thế giới chúng ta đang sống vừa thật sự đa nguyên vừa vô cùng phức tạp.

Càng phức tạp hơn cho những ai muốn đi tìm sự thật. Sự thật nằm ở đâu? Trong sự tổng hợp các quan sát trình bày trên hay, đơn giản và rốt cuộc vẫn là, trong cặp mắt người nhìn?

Francis Fukuyama nhận xét khá tinh tế và sâu sắc về ảnh hưởng của chủ nghĩa bộ lạc đối với nền chính trị thế giới trong bài mới nhất của ông trên Foreign Affairs [9]. Bài này tóm lược các ý chính trong cuốn sách mới nhất của ông sắp được phát hành. Fukuyama kết luận: con người sẽ không bao giờ ngừng suy nghĩ về chính họ và xã hội của họ về mặt bản sắc; nhưng bản sắc của con người không phải là cứng ngắt mà cũng không phải được cấu tạo lúc sinh thành; bản sắc có thể được sử dụng để chia rẽ mà cũng có thể để đoàn kết; sau cùng nó có thể là phương thuốc cho nền chính trị dân túy của thời hiện tại.

Khi chủ nghĩa bộ lạc vẫn còn hiện hữu, thể hiện qua chính trị về bản sắc, như Chua và Fukuyama phân tích, thì chính trị quyền lực cũng sẽ còn đó, không đi đâu cả. Như thế, về mặt chính trị và bang giao quốc tế, quyền lực và quyền lợi sẽ luôn đóng vai trò quan trọng, như Kotkin và những nhà hiện thực nhận định. Chỉ khi nào con người trở nên thánh thiện, tôn trọng và đối xử nhau một cách nhân ái, tương kính và không phân biệt, và không sử dụng bạo lực với nhau, thì quan hệ giữa con người và trên bình diện quốc tế mới thay đổi sâu sắc. Những tranh chấp về chủng tộc, tôn giáo, văn minh, phái tính, hay ý thức hệ v.v… sẽ còn với con người một thời gian dài. Do đó trong hiện tại, có lẽ chỉ có chủ nghĩa cấp tiến và nền dân chủ cấp tiến mới có khả năng giải quyết được các bài toán nhức nhối của con người, như Deudney and Ikenberry biện luận. Nền tảng tư tưởng/lý thuyết của chủ nghĩa cấp tiến là mọi người phải được đối xử bình đẳng, phải có quyền tự do cá nhân, nhân phẩm/quyền không bị chà đạp vì phái tính hay vì thuộc một nhóm xã hội nào đó (particular social group) v.v… Nhưng chủ nghĩa cấp tiến chỉ có thể là giải pháp lâu dài và vững ổn nếu các nhà lãnh đạo chính trị trong các thập niên tới có thể hoạch định những chính sách vừa phát huy tối đa hiệu năng của cuộc cách mạng công nghệ tới, vừa tái phân phối hàng hóa và dịch vụ một cách tối ưu (optimal) cho toàn xã hội, đồng thời cũng phải quan tâm đúng mức đến chính sách nhân dụng, như Drum đã biện luận. Còn không thì Mác sẽ “hiện hồn” về, chờn vờn ám ảnh và báo động những xung đột lúc ngấm ngầm lúc bùng nổ trong nền kinh tế tư bản cực đoan khi một thiểu số nắm mọi quyền lực vật chất trong tay, và đa số thì vất vả không ngừng, như Varghese trình bày. Sau cùng, khi thế giới bị hâm nóng một cách vô trách nhiệm thì môi trường sống sẽ bị ảnh hưởng sâu sắc, như Busby đã nhắc nhở. Khi di dân/tị nạn - là nạn nhân của tranh chấp chính trị qua chủ nghĩa bộ lạc, hay là nạn nhân của thiên tai/môi trường sống - phải tìm cách lánh nạn ở tầm lớn, nhưng thế giới, nhất là các quốc gia dân chủ và phát triển, lại quảnh mặt làm ngơ, thì tuyên ngôn quốc tế nhân quyền chẳng còn giá trị gì cả ngoại trừ trên giấy tờ. Đó có thể là mốc điểm của sự suy thoái toàn diện của nền văn minh toàn cầu.

Những vấn đề này có liên hệ gì đến mỗi chúng ta? Có nhiều lắm chứ! Mỗi chúng ta, không phân biệt, bằng suy nghĩ và hành động thực tiễn, có thể góp phần làm cho chính mình, gia đình, xã hội, đất nước và thế giới, tốt hơn. Không cần làm những gì quá lớn, ngoài tầm tay. Nền văn minh nhân loại sẽ bị huỷ hoại nếu chúng ta chỉ biết sống cho chính mình và chỉ biết quan tâm trong cuộc đời mình mà không nghĩ đến người khác và các thế hệ về sau. Cho nên chỉ cần bắt đầu bằng sự tử tế, liêm chính và tinh thần trách nhiệm, thì một ngày nào đó những tinh thần và giá trị này sẽ loan tỏa sâu rộng và truyền lại cho các thế hệ mai sau. Cuối cùng chúng ta có quyền lạc quan nhưng không thể tự mãn khi các thách thức của nhân loại vô cùng lớn lao trong khi số người quan tâm và đóng góp vẫn còn là thiểu số.

Just looking- Snell has 4 vs Red Sox and 3 vs Yankees. Then 2 more each vs Cleveland and Houston. In those 11 starts he's gone 66.1 innings and given up only 16 ER (a cool 2.17 ERA). vs teams currently at or above .500 as a whole he's gone 16 starts with 18 er in 97.1 ip. a pretty spectacular 1.66 ERA. Sale has made 9 starts vs winning teams and given up 17 er in 56 IP for a 2.73 ERA. Verlander has made 12 starts vs winning teams and given up 26 er in 72.1 ip 3.24 ERA I know there were some voters that used this kind of logic last year to give it to Kluber(who this year has 30 er in 74 ip- 3.65 ERA) I think Snell might have a far better case than folks think. He's been so good vs the good teams.

          El papa convoca a los presidentes de todas las Conferencias Episcopales del mundo para hablar de abusos      Cache   Translate Page      
El papa Francisco, preparándose para su audiencia semanal en la Plaza de San Pedro, el pasado 29 de agosto.

El papa Francisco ha convocado a los presidentes de las Conferencias Episcopales de todo el mundo los próximos 21 a 24 de febrero en el Vaticano para hablar de la prevención de los abusos a menores.

"El Santo Padre, tras escuchar al Consejo de Cardenales, ha convocado una reunión con los presidentes de las Conferencias Episcopales de todo el mundo para hablar de la prevención de abusos a menores y adultos vulnerables", señaló la vicedirectora de la oficina de prensa del Vaticano, Paloma García Ovejero.

Mañana, jueves, Francisco recibirá a varios obispos de Estados Unidos tras los escándalos de abusos que han salpicado a la Iglesia de ese país.

Al Vaticano acudirán mañana el presidente de la Conferencia Episcopal estadounidense, el cardenal Daniel DiNardo, arzobispo de Galveston-Houston, y el cardenal y arzobispo de Boston Seán Patrick O'Malley, que es además presidente de la Comisión Pontificia para la Protección de los Menores.

También el arzobispo de Los Ángeles y vicepresidente de la Conferencia Episcopal, José Horacio Gómez, y el secretario general, Brian Bransfield.

Entre los últimos escándalos de abusos sexuales en el seno de la Iglesia se encuentran los destapados en Chile, que obligaron a todos los obispos chilenos a poner sus cargos a disposición del Pontífice, y los de Estados Unidos, con centenares de casos.

Este encuentro se produce, además, después de que el arzobispo Carlo María Vigano, exnuncio en Washington, acusara al papa de conocer los abusos contra seminaristas cometidos por McCarrick y no hacer nada al respecto. Sin presentar pruebas y cuando el pontífice celebraba una misa en el Encuentro Mundial de las Familias de Dublín (Irlanda) Viganò pidió la dimisión del Santo Padre en un gesto sin precedentes en la Iglesia.

Ayuda para las reformas

De forma paralela, hoy concluyó la reunión de tres días que han mantenido en el Vaticano el consejo de nueve cardenales nombrados por el papa Francisco para ayudarle en sus reformas, el llamado C9.

En la última sesión de hoy, no estuvieron presentes los cardenales Francisco Javier Errázuriz Ossa, arzobispo emérito de Santiago y muy cuestionado en Chile por los escándalos de abusos a menores, ocultados por la Iglesia de ese país; George Pell, que afronta en Australia un juicio relacionado con abusos sexuales; ni Laurent Monsengwo Pasinya.

El pasado lunes, el C9 ya explicó en un comunicado que había propuesto al papa Francisco reflexionar sobre "el trabajo, la estructura y la composición del consejo". La próxima reunión del C9 tendrá lugar los próximos 10, 11 y 12 de diciembre.

          Cleveland Indians wishing, hoping and praying that Jose Ramirez will make the fans sing again      Cache   Translate Page      

Indians All-Star Jose Ramirez has seen his average drop from .305 to 280 since Aug. 14.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - It was not the greatest of trips for Jose Ramirez and the Indians.

Yes, he prevented the Indians from being no-hit and shut out in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. On Sunday in Toronto, he stole second base in the first inning to become the third 30-30 man in team history along with Joe Carter and Grady Sizemore.

Besides that, it has been almost a month of silence from the man who has been the American League's starting All-Star third baseman for the last two years.

Ramirez's homer off Blake Snell in the seventh inning Wednesday ended Snell's bid for a no-hitter and gave Ramirez his 38th homer of the season. Not that 38 homers isn't something worth celebrating - his career high until this year was 29 - but it was Ramirez's first long ball in 88 at-bats. He hit No. 37 off Baltimore's David Hess in the first inning on Aug. 17. Not to mention that it was his first homer off a lefty since he went deep against Martin Perez of Texas on July 20.

So the Indians are hopeful that Wednesday's homer can help Ramirez get back to the hitter who went into the All-Star break batting .302 (108-for-358) with 29 homers, 70 RBI and a 1.029 OPS. Since the break, however, he's hitting .235 (40-for-170) with nine homers and 29 RBI.

"We've all seen it," said manager Terry Francona. "You know it's there and you know he's going to get hot. Especially (hitting a home run) off a guy like Snell, that will do him some good."

Snell is a 19-game winner and a strong AL Cy Young candidate.

Ramirez's average has plunged from .305 on Aug. 14 to .280 after Wednesday's loss. In that stretch, he's hitting .168 (16-for-95) with two homers and 10 RBI. His OPS has dropped from 1.054 to .967.

Despite Ramirez's slide, he is the first player to combine this much power and speed in one year (32 steals and 38 homers) since Matt Kemp hit 39 homers and stole 40 bases for the Dodgers in 2011. The last American Leaguer to put up similar numbers was New York's Alfonso Soriano (38 homers, 35 steals) in 2003. The only other switch-hitter to do it was Carlos Beltran, who hit 38 homers and stole 42 bases for Kansas City and Houston in 2004.

"He's extremely intelligent about how teams are pitching him," said Francona, "and what they're trying to do to him. He's just in a little bit of a lull here, but he'll get going again. He can hit any pitch. It's not like he can't hit a certain pitch or he can't get to a fastball. He'll be fine."

The Indians went 3-4 on this seven-game trip against the rebuilding Blue Jays and the Rays. The Blue Jays have been eliminated from the postseason and the Rays nearly so, but it's fair to say that the Indians were out-hustled and out-enthused by both teams.

Don't be a stranger: The Indians, with just three games left against Boston, are 14-17 against the AL East. Baltimore is the only team they've posted a winning record against.

Toronto and the Rays went 4-3 against the Tribe, while the Yankees were 5-2. The Indians and Red Sox have split four games.

Tough opponent: Remember when Carlos Carrasco seemed to flirt with a no-hitter every time he took the mound? The year was 2015 and the closest he came to a no-hitter was against the Rays on July 1. There were two outs in the ninth when Joey Butler lined a two-strike single into right field to ruin Carrasco's date with history.

This year, however, the Rays have been hard on him. He's 0-2 with 5.40 ERA against the Rays in the second half. When he's not facing Tampa, Carrasco is 5-2 with a 1.80 ERA since the break.

Finally: The Indians were held to one hit Wednesday for the second time this season and the first time since April 3 against the Angels. ... Andrew Miller relieved Carrasco and pitched a scoreless eighth inning. It was his second scoreless inning in the last three days.

"He commanded all his pitches," said Francona. "His breaking ball is just almost devastating. And he's throwing his fastball through the glove better -- certainly better than he did before. And it'll continue to get better." The Indians brought Miller off the disabled list on Monday.
