Liberals think conservatives are stupid, and will buy anything they put out in the liberal media. And they’re right, regarding people who have been CONDITIONED by liberal propaganda, over the years, and don’t know any better. College students come to mind. The liberals have infested the colleges for so long that all they get taught is what the liberals want them to think, and most of it is not true. But that’s all they’ve been taught, so they believe it. Liberals have a strong presence in academia, as well as in the media and other institutions that have anything to do with teaching kids to be good liberals. They refer to the country outside of their enclaves on the coasts as “flyover country.” They even think they need a passport to go to somewhere like Kansas City because it’s a “different country” out there. And, more important, they think TRUMP is stupid. They just can’t understand how he keeps making them look stupid, every day, while being so stupid. They say he “wanders the halls of the White House,” mumbling to himself and to the paintings of past presidents. That when he’s not doing that, he’s watching too much television, chiefly Fox News. They think they can “bring him down” with their salacious accusations that may or may not be true, that they present with NO PROOF of anything, attributing them to “anonymous sources” that probably do not exist.

          Thread: Firefly: The Game:: Variants:: Another draft story card      Cache   Translate Page      

by Highplains Gamer

I have prepared another draft story card, which I will be play testing this Friday, and plan on using at the Recruits convention in Kansas City at the end of this month. It uses the kid cards in Gwek's Eights and Aces special cards. I thought it would be neat to put some of those kid cards to use:

Robbing the Pied Piper

The Alliance has been promising gifted children an advanced education for gifted children at the Academy. In reality, these children are being subjected to experimentation and genetic modification. A rescue group have learned of these plans and are recruiting captains to find and bring these children to safety.

Special Rules:

This episode requires the special cards prepared by Gwek in his Aces and Eights deck.

Throughout the episode, a cortex alert will be in effect for the children, meaning the children can be taken by bounty hunters. However, and children turned in for their bounty do not count towards victory. Moreover, collecting this bounty disgruntles any moral crew.

Since there are no financial rewards for rescuing children, every time a child is delivered to his sanctuary, any mercenary crew orew are disgruntled.

Goal 1: Search for Children

The supply decks have “Kid” cards. Travel to supply planets, locate the children, and have them join your crew.

Goal 2: Bring the children to a sanctuary planet. Each player makes a random die roll based on the following table.

1 -2 3-4 5-6
1 Aesir: Himinbjorg Anson’s World: Red Sun Aphrodite: Murphy
2 Boros: Georgia Brinsingammen: Himinbjorg Greenleaf: Red Sun
3 Harvest: Red Sun Hera Murphy Ithica: Georgia
4 Jangyin: Red Sun Jubille: Red Sun Kerry: Georgia
5 New Melbourne: Red Sun New Hop: Georgia Priam Georgia
6 St. albans: Red Sun Three Hills: Georgia Triiumph: Heinlein

After rolling, write the name of the destination planet. (alternatively, players can draw chits containing the name of planets.

Winning the Episode: The winner of the episode is the player who has delivered the most children to sanctuary.

          Guest Recital: Michael Kimber, viola with Kathryn Plummer, viola      Cache   Translate Page      

Monday, October 1

8 p.m.

Steve and Judy Turner Recital Hall

Guest Recital: Michael Kimber, viola

with Kathryn Plummer, viola

Violist Michael Kimber has been praised for his “lyrical sound, full of warmth and color” and “agility that was little short of astounding.”  He began his musical studies on violin and had in mind pursuing a career as a composer. However, at the age of 20 he was persuaded to play viola (not violin) in a string trio, an experience that was life-changing. Captivated by the viola’s rich sound, he saw the light, went to the dark side, and decided to dedicate his efforts to becoming a violist, studying with Francis Bundra at the University of Michigan and at Interlochen, and with Raphael Hillyer, the founding violist of the Juilliard String Quartet.

After completing his doctorate in viola performance, Dr. Kimber began his professional career playing viola with the Alexandria Quartet, an American ensemble in residence at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music in Australia. This adventure was followed by an exciting year premiering new music from coast to coast in the US and Canada as violist of the Kronos Quartet. During twenty-five years as a viola professor, first at the University of Kansas and then at the University of Southern Mississippi, he also served as principal violist of the Kansas City Chamber Orchestra, the Kansas City Camerata, and the Meridian Symphony Orchestra, while performing internationally with ensembles as diverse as the Atlanta Virtuosi, the Early Music Consort of Kansas City, and the Oread Baroque Ensemble. Since 2005 he has been artist instructor of viola at Coe College, plays viola with Orchestra Iowa, and is an active member of the Iowa Composers Forum.  Among his former students are Brant Bayless, principal violist of the Utah Symphony; Maria Bogodist, principal violist of the Omsk (Siberia) Philharmonia; Tim Deighton, professor of viola at Pennsylvania State University; and Julio Lopez, violist in the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra and a professor at the Vienna Music Academy.

Having given up composing in 1965 to focus on viola performance, Dr. Kimber began to compose again in 1985. Since that time his music, especially that for viola, has become widely known and performed. In 2010 the American Viola Society presented him its Founders Award in recognition of his contributions as a composer of music for viola. Seven CDs of his music, recorded by Polish violist Marcin Murawski, have been released by Acte Préalable. His music can also be heard on the CDs American Voices (Hillary Herndon, viola), archi d'amore zelanda (Donald Maurice, viola d’amore), and Night Strings (George Taylor, viola), and in numerous performances on YouTube by both students and artist performers.  The 2017 International Viola Congress in Wellington, New Zealand, concluded with massed violas performing eight of his works in a “Tribute to Michael Kimber.”  He has been named Red Cedar Chamber Music composer-in-residence for the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 seasons.

Fascinated with the colorful history of tuning systems and intonation, Dr. Kimber enjoys opening musicians’ ears to the beautiful subtleties of melodic and harmonic intonation, an awareness of which should be a part of every musician’s training. Nevertheless, he is most often applauded for something more mundane — the invention of the amazingly comfortable poly-pad violin/viola shoulder rest. Since 1990 tens of thousands of poly-pads have been purchased in all 50 states, DC, and 34 foreign countries.

This event is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the West Garage (2500 Children's Way) free of charge.

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.

A Villanova University basketball announcer's son who was arrested for flipping a car after the Philadelphia Eagles' Super Bowl win won't do any jail time. Court records show 20-year-old John Rigsby was recommended for a yearlong accelerated rehabilitative probationary program on March 16. Once he completes the program Gabe Jackson Jersey (http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/gabe-jackson-jersey-cheap) , his arrest record can be expunged. A message seeking comment from his lawyer wasn't returned Monday. His father is Robert "Whitey" Rigsby, the longtime broadcaster for the team that's heading to the Final Four. Videos on social media show the younger Rigsby, wearing a white Nick Foles jersey Adolphus Washington Jersey (http://www.billscheapstore.com/adolphus-washington-jersey-cheap) , pounding his chest in celebration after flipping the car. Pockets of victory celebrations turned unruly last month. Rowdy fans smashed windows at department stores and toppled some of the city's famously greased light poles. The Cleveland Browns traded tight end Randall Telfer to the Kansas City Chiefs for defensive end Dadi Nicolas. A sixth-round pick in 2015, Telfer is the sixth veteran dealt by new Browns general manager John Dorsey, who continues to remold a team that has just one victory over the past two seasons. Telfer started 19 games for Cleveland and was used primarily as a blocker. He caught five passes for 40 yards. After he was selected in 2015 Harrison Phillips Jersey (http://www.billscheapstore.com/harrison-phillips-jersey-cheap) , Telfer sat out his rookie season while recovering from a foot injury. Nicolas has history with Dorsey, who was Kansas City's GM from 2013-16. He selected the 6-foot-3, 235-pound Nicolas in the 2016 sixth round. The 25-year-old Nicolas appeared in 11 games as a rookie Michael Strahan Jersey (http://www.giantscheapstore.com/michael-strahan-jersey-cheap) , but injured his knee in the regular-season finale and sat out 2017. Since joining the Browns in December, Dorsey has traded quarterbacks DeShone Kizer, Kevin Hogan and Cody Kessler Jarius Wright Jersey (http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/jarius-wright-jersey-cheap) , cornerback Jason McCourty and defensive tackle Danny Shelton. The Browns also claimed linebacker Jermaine Grace off waivers from Indianapolis on Wednesday. The 6-1, 225-pounder signed with Atlanta last year as an undrafted free agent. He appeared in five games on special teams with the Falcons and six with the Colts. Luka Doncic Jersey (http://www.basketballofficialauthentic.com ba-jerseys/dallas-mavericks/luka-doncic-jersey)

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)

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his wife Will Hernandez Jersey (http://www.giantscheapstore.com/will-hernandez-jersey-cheap) , the singer Ciara, have joined the effort to bring Major League Baseball to Portland. The Oregonian/OregonLive reports that Portland Diamond Project, the company leading the push, announced Friday that the husband-and-wife celebrities have each invested individually as "owner/investors" in the project. The Diamond Project's leadership has stressed that its effort will take time, estimating an opening day in Portland would come in 2022 at the earliest. MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred has called Portland a candidate to acquire a franchise whether by expansion, which hasn't happened in 20 years, or relocation. Though Wilson is an NFL quarterback, he has a connection to baseball. He played in the minor leagues while in college and practiced with the Texas Rangers during spring training in March. The last round of this year’s Subway Series has been delayed. The season finale between the New York Mets and New York Yankees was postponed because of rain Sunday night and will be made up on Aug. 13 at 7:05 p.m., previously an off day for both teams. The Yankees will be in the middle of a long homestand anyway Alec Ogletree Jersey (http://www.giantscheapstore.com/alec-ogletree-jersey-cheap) , although the makeup game means they’ll now play 20 days in a row during that stretch. The Mets, meanwhile, will make a one-game pit stop in the Bronx between trips to Miami and Baltimore on a lengthy road swing that ends in Philadelphia. With steady rain falling, a tarp covered the infield all evening and play never began. The game was called about an hour after the scheduled 8:05 p.m. start. It was the 42nd postponement in the majors this year, already more than all of last season. Mets ace Jacob deGrom (5-4), who leads the majors with a 1.68 ERA, had been slated to pitch against Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka (7-2, 4.54). But thanks to the bad weather, Aaron Judge and the Bronx Bombers were spared the task of facing deGrom Obi Melifonwu Jersey (http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/obi-melifonwu-jersey-cheap) , who is 0-2 with an 8.03 ERA in two career starts at Yankee Stadium. ”He’s a tough customer, obviously. A great pitcher,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. ”Look, any time we take the field we feel like we have a real good chance no matter who’s out there, especially at home. So you don’t like stacking up these doubleheaders and now a makeup game and those type of things. But obviously, tonight was a tough matchup for sure.” Boone said All-Star righty Luis Severino will stay on his regular turn Monday night at Tampa Bay, with Tanaka going Tuesday. Severino had already traveled down to Florida ahead of the team to get a normal night’s sleep. Veteran left-hander CC Sabathia will be pushed back from Tuesday to Friday, when he will pitch at home against lowly Kansas City on his bobblehead night. ”I think it will be fun,” Sabathia said. ”My mom’s excited about it Sony Michel Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/sony-michel-jersey-cheap) , my grandmother’s excited. So I think it will be good.” Sabathia turned 38 on Saturday and the Yankees wanted to take the opportunity to give him extra rest. ”It really benefits him,” Boone said. ”Just with his knee and maintenance.” Sabathia gets lubricant injections to help alleviate discomfort in his troublesome knee. He received one right before the All-Star break and said he thought it was his third one this season. ”The more time I can give that thing and just let the medicine move around, it will react better,” Sabathia said. ”Any time you get a chance to get some rest, I think it’s key – especially for me at this point in the season. I’m welcoming the rest for sure.” The second-place Yankees (63-34) are five games behind major league-leading Boston in the AL East, three in the loss column. Sabathia said it would be ”shocking” if they don’t make a deal before the July 31 trade deadline. ”We always do something,” he explained. ”But I think we have the guys in there if they don’t do anything to get it done.” Last in the NL East, the Mets rescheduled deGrom for Monday night at home against San Diego. Zack Wheeler had originally been slated to start that game. The crosstown rivals split two games over the weekend, giving the Yankees a 3-2 lead in their six-game season series.

          Chargers not altering game plan on defense facing rookie QB      Cache   Translate Page      

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Chargers face a familiar scenario for the second straight game, preparing for an athletic but inexperienced quarterback.

After facing Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes last week, the Chargers will go up against Buffalo's Josh Allen, who will be making his first NFL start Sunday.

Coach Anthony Lynn and members of the Chargers secondary say they don't see much alteration of the game plan with the Bills going to their rookie, who was the seventh overall pick in this year's draft.

"When preparing against someone like that, you are not going to change too much.

          Iraq Vet, Acclaimed Poet Wants Kansas City To Talk About Moral Wounds Of War      Cache   Translate Page      
Brian Turner was packed and ready to ship out for Iraq when his grandfather finally broke a decades’ long silence about his own combat experience. When the words came, they were to say that Turner should grab the biggest weapon and as much ammunition as he could carry. The award-winning writer comes from a long line of veterans and ultimately joined their ranks because, he writes in his memoir , “I would’ve been ashamed in the years to come if I hadn’t…. because it would’ve meant that between me and the people I revered most there were beaches and jungle foliage and Russian MiGs and snipers and artillery craters…” As one of millions of United States combat veterans, Turner shares an invisible wound called moral injury. And, as a member of that community who is a writer, he answers the call to support others who don’t have an outlet to sort through what they brought home with them. For seven years, Turner was an infantryman who deployed to both Iraq and Bosnia-Herzegovina. He says

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

More importantly, he is trying to show his young teammates the Colorado are still post-season contenders. He hopes winning a series at home was a fresh start.Trouble in the Reds outfield, the Blue Jays rotation could have a new look, an interesting catcher option in Colorado and injuries to Davis, Kipnis, Cain and more. INJURIES - Reds RF Jay Bruce is facing knee surgery for a torn meniscus and it could cost him a month of playing time. Chris Heisey, who has shown some pop (43 home runs, .736 OPS in 1218 career plate appearances) takes over in right for the Reds. - The Reds are also missing LHP Tony Cingrani, who has shoulder tendinitis, but Cincinnati can get away with a four-man rotation for the time being. - A torn tendon in his right hand leaves RHP Brandon Morrow on the 60-day DL, giving J.A. Happ a chance to return to the rotation. Happ has been rocked in three relief appearances this year, so it may not be long before Marcus Stroman gets his turn. Stroman, a 2012 first-round pick, has been recalled from Triple-A Buffalo, where he was 2-2 with a 1.69 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 36 strikeouts in 26 2/3 innings. Stroman starts in the bullpen but figures to be next in line for a rotation opening. - With 1B Chris Davis on the DL due to a strained oblique, Steve Pearce is getting regular playing time for the Orioles. Pearce has done little (.222 AVG, .556 OPS) in 27 plate appearances this year, but since joining the Orioles in 2012, he has seven home runs, 29 RBI, a .253 average and .748 OPS in 248 plate appearances. - A strained hamstring has put White Sox CF Adam Eaton on the DL, giving Jordan Danks a shot at some regular playign time. In 300 career plate appearances, Danks is hitting .207 with a .606 OPS and a dozen stolen bases, so he hasnt clicked in the bigs yet, but had a respectable .772 OPS in four seasons (1566 plate appearances) at Triple-A. - Indians 2B Jason Kipnis is out with a strained oblique, and the Tribe has turned to 21-year-old Jose Ramirez. Ramirez doesnt have any power to speak of, but hit .308 with a .765 OPS and 75 stolen bases, in 1172 minor-league plate appearances. - Need a catcher? While Rockies C Wilin Rosario deals with a viral infection, consider Jordan Pacheco, who is the primary backup in Colorado. Pacheco had played primarily first and third base with the rockies, but, prior to this season, had seen action at catcher in 22 of 213 career games. This year, Pacheco has caught in 10 games, and is hitting .278 with a .769 OPS. He hasnt hit enough to have value as a corner infielder, but as a catcher? Thats a different story. - Tigers RHP Anibal Sanchez is on the DL due to a laceration on his finger, giving LHP Robbie Ray (3-2, 1.53 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 21 K, 29 1/3 IP at Triple-A) a turn in the Detroit rotation. Ray was acquired from Washhington as part of the Doug Fister trade in the offseason. Sharks Jerseys For Sale. . - A run-in with a kitchen knife has sent Giants RHP Matt Cain to the DL, opening up a spot in the rotation for Yusmerio Petit, the 29-year-old who has a 3.31 ERA in 73 1/3 innings with the Giants since 2012. - Angels 3B David Freese suffered a broken finger on the weekend, leaving the hot corner in the hands of Ian Stewart, the one-time top prospect who has power (hit 25 HR in 2009), but is hitting .186 with seven home runs in 396 plate appearances since the start of 2011. - Twins RHP Mike Pelfrey is sidelined with a groin problem, giving Samuel Deduno a chance to return to the starting rotation. Dedunos strikeout rate has improved, working out of the bullpen this year, though hes also giving up more base-runners than he did last season, when he was 8-8 with a 3.83 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 18 starts for the Twins. GOOD ADDS (Available in at least 40% of TSN leagues) Jhonny Peralta, SS, St. Louis - 7 HR, 15 RBI, .222 AVG, 13 R, 108 AB (Available: 48.6%) Omar Infante, 2B, Kansas City - 2 HR, 19 RBI, .282 AVG, 13 R, 110 AB (Available: 49.5%) Todd Frazier, 3B, Cincinnati - 5 HR, 18 RBI, .269 AVG, 17 R, 3 SB, 97 AB (Available: 40.6%) Chris Young, CF, N.Y.

Mets - 2-2, 2.20 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 24 K, 32 2/3 IP (Available: 77.0%) CLOSER NOTES - Sergio Santos has lost the Blue Jays closer gig after blowing back-to-back save appearances. 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.

          Boy Survives After Meat Skewer Pierces Skull      Cache   Translate Page      
HARRISONVILLE, Mo. (AP) — A 10-year-old Missouri boy is recovering after he was attacked by insects and tumbled from a tree, landing on a meat skewer that penetrated his skull from his face to the back of his head. But miraculously, that's where Xavier Cunningham's bad luck ended. The skewer had completely missed Xavier's eye, brain, spinal cord and major blood vessels, The Kansas City Star reports . Xavier's harrowing experience began Saturday afternoon when yellow jackets attacked him in a tree house at his home in Harrisonville, about 35 miles (56 kilometers) south of Kansas City. He fell to the ground and started to scream. His mother, Gabrielle Miller, ran to help him. His skull was pierced from front-to-back with half a foot of skewer still sticking out of his face. Miller tried to...

          McHenry VFW Post 4600 more than a watering hole      Cache   Translate Page      
Mention of a Veterans of Foreign Wars hall might conjure up images of war-weathered old men chomping cigars and draining beers in a smoky barroom.

To a point, the cliche holds up. Brick-and-mortar VFW halls were opened to give American soldiers returning from World War II a spot to meet fellow comrades – many of whom returned rattled by overseas combat.

"They needed a battle-buddy safe place where they could unload their troubles on one another," said Lynn Rolf, a 42-year-old Iraq War veteran programs director with the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States in Kansas City, Missouri. "But people automatically connect the negative connotations of drinking with troubled veterans."  

In McHenry, the multimillion-dollar Queen of Hearts spectacle at VFW Post 4600 has shined a spotlight on the decades-old hall and raised some questions: What is the role of the VFW in the community? Is it more than a beer hall?

Post 4600: An origin story

It was Sept. 25, 1945, three weeks after the end of World War II.

A group of McHenry County veterans met in the basement of St. Mary's School and created Fox River Valley Post 4600. Three weeks later, the National Veterans of Foreign Wars headquarters issued the group a charter, and it formally became established.

The men behind Post 4600 spent most of 1946 recruiting members. They marched in parades. They raised cash through fundraising dances.

In 1947, Post 4600 hosted its first carnival and raised enough money to buy a 13.7-acre parcel known as the Conway Woods (now at 3002 Route 120) for $5,000. Concrete was poured, and Post 4600 finished its home by Dec. 7, 1948.

Several expansions followed: a dance hall in 1950 for fundraisers, dances and bingo nights and a bigger barroom on New Year's Eve 1960.

When Post 4600 celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1995, more than 350 veterans had joined. That number now is more than 400.

Supporting vets

Gary Snell played his first Little League game on the ball diamonds dotting Post 4600's property.

It was 1955. The 72-year-old McHenry man was only a boy.

"The farthest thing from a 9 or 10-year-old’s mind is the thought that 10 years later you would be drafted to go to Korea or Vietnam," Snell said.

A graduate of McHenry East High School, Snell was drafted and sent to Korea. It was 1965, and he wouldn't return to McHenry until 1968. That's when he joined Post 4600, and he's been a member ever since.

"I've seen more than my share of parades," Snell said.

A lot has changed since Snell joined.

The baseball diamonds now are maintained by the McHenry Baseball Association, the hall has expanded twice, and people from across the U.S. know about the Queen of Hearts raffle bringing the post millions of dollars.

The other day, Snell talked to someone in Portland, Oregon, who had heard about Post 4600. Snell sold tickets to someone all the way from Tinley Park.

"If they were giving away money in Tinley Park, I wouldn’t drive down there to get it," Snell said, laughing.

To guys like Snell, a witness to the VFW's growth over the years, Post 4600 is more than a bar. It's a family.

"We do whatever we can to help veterans," Snell said. "It’s not always easy. No matter what you do, it takes money."

Expanding relief

VFW halls like Post 4600 have what's called a relief fund.

It's a reserve of money available to veterans who might need help to buy a tank of gas to get to work, or a month's rent to keep a roof over their head.

"We can’t answer every phone call," Snell said, "but we try to help."

The VFW's board has not yet determined what percentage of Queen of Hearts dollars will go into the fund, VFW Cmdr. Dwane Lungren said.

Lungren took over the post in August 2017. He said Post 4600 offers scholarships to the high school and elementary schoolchildren of veterans that range from $250 to $1,000.

But Lungren's vision now is focused on in-house improvements to make Post 4600 known for its food. Since the Queen of Hearts raffle has brought crowds to McHenry, the kitchen has been churning out hundreds of pizzas to feed visitors.

The kitchen soon could be expanded with a stone oven to make homemade pizza dough. Plans to build a beer garden have been approved. The post now has a new outdoor cooler and freezer.

The expansion, Lungren said, will make Post 4600 a bigger draw in the community.

"It used be the image of old men sitting around smoking cigars and drinking beers," Lungren said. "Things have changed."

          Dollar Losing Ground Ahead Of Data Deluge       Cache   Translate Page      

The dollar got off to a positive start Wednesday, but has turned lower over the course of the trading session. Traders are looking forward to a large number of economic reports over the next two days.

Weekly jobless claims and inflation data are due to be released Thursday morning, while retail sales, industrial production and consumer sentiment are among the numerous reports slated for Friday.

A report released by the Federal Reserve on Wednesday said the U.S. economy expanded at a moderate pace through the end of August.

The Fed's Beige Book is a compilation of anecdotal evidence on economic conditions in the twelve Fed districts released shortly before the central bank makes its decision on monetary policy.

The Beige Book said Dallas reported relatively brisk growth, while Philadelphia, St. Louis, and Kansas City indicated somewhat below average growth.

The report also said consumer spending continued to grow at a modest pace since the last report, and tourism activity expanded, to varying degrees, across the nation.

Producer prices in the U.S. unexpectedly saw a modest decrease in the month of August, according to a report released by the Labor Department on Wednesday. The Labor Department said its producer price index for final demand edged down by 0.1 percent in August after coming in unchanged in July. Economists had expected prices to rise by 0.2 percent.

The dollar rose to an early high of $1.1570 against the Euro Wednesday, but has since retreated to around $1.1635.

Eurozone industrial production decreased for the second straight month in July, Eurostat reported Wednesday. Industrial output slid 0.8 percent month-on-month in July, the same pace of decline as seen in June. Economists had forecast a moderate drop of 0.5 percent.

The buck climbed to an early high of $1.2979 against the pound sterling Wednesday, but has since eased back to around $1.3050.

The greenback has pulled back to around Y111.225 against the Japanese Yen this afternoon, from an early high of Y111.632.

          Beige Book Says U.S. Economy Expanded At Moderate Pace       Cache   Translate Page      

A report released by the Federal Reserve on Wednesday said the U.S. economy expanded at a moderate pace through the end of August.

The Fed's Beige Book is a compilation of anecdotal evidence on economic conditions in the twelve Fed districts released shortly before the central bank makes its decision on monetary policy.

The Beige Book said Dallas reported relatively brisk growth, while Philadelphia, St. Louis, and Kansas City indicated somewhat below average growth.

The report also said consumer spending continued to grow at a modest pace since the last report, and tourism activity expanded, to varying degrees, across the nation.

Looking ahead, the Fed said businesses generally remained optimistic about the near-term outlook, though most districts noted concern and uncertainty about trade tensions.

A number of districts noted that such concerns had prompted some businesses to scale back or postpone capital investment, the Fed added.

The release of the Beige Book comes as the Fed is widely expected to raise interest rates by a quarter point at its next monetary policy meeting later this month.

          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.

          Housing Study: For Low-Income Residents, Kansas City Is Far From Affordable      Cache   Translate Page      
Kansas City, Missouri, has long prided itself as an affordable place to live. But a new study commissioned by the city paints a different picture. The study, commissioned a year ago by the city council, shows that affordable housing options exist for people of high or moderate incomes. But for people who make less than $30,000 a year, options are scarce. Jeff Williams, director of City Planning and Development and one of the authors of the study, said those people are disproportionately affected by the undersupply of affordable housing stock. Williams presented the study results to the city’s housing committee Thursday. “Which means they’re spending more than 30 percent of their income on housing costs,” Williams said. Williams said that cost burden is made worse by high energy and utility costs. Many of the most distressed areas of the housing market are clustered east of Troost Avenue and south of the Missouri River. Those areas have seen sharp declines in population, leaving behind
          Kansas City Nonprofit Breaks Ground On Home Featuring Childhood Safety      Cache   Translate Page      
A Kansas City nonprofit group is building a house that its leaders hope will help save the lives of young children. The Charlie’s House Safety Demonstration Home on Hospital Hill aims to provide a model for making a home safe for young children – everything from securing furniture to storing firearms. “We believe that people learn by seeing and learn by first-hand,” says Cindy Minse, a board member of Charlie’s House, which is based in Kansas City. When completed, the home will offer free childproofing training and products, including furniture-securing straps and cabinet locks. Charlie’s House was founded in 2007 by Brett and Jenny Horn in memory of their son, Charlie, who died when he was two after a dresser fell on him. Minse says the house, at 951 E. 24 th Street, is the culmination of a decade of work promoting child safety. Charlie’s House broke ground on it today. “It was always our dream to build this house where parents, caregivers, grandparents can learn firsthand how to keep

          'Miracle' as boy survives fall onto BBQ skewer which impaled his skull      Cache   Translate Page      
It's being described as a "miracle". A 10-year-old boy in the United States has survived after falling from a tree and landing on a barbecue meat skewer that passed right through his head. Surgeons in Kansas City successfully removed the object which somehow missed his vital organs. Xavier Cunningham had been playing with friends last Saturday when suddenly his heard screaming. She found Xavier with the meat skewer sticking out of his head. He had fallen from a treehouse after being attacked by wasps - right onto the lethal object which pierced his skull. Xavier's father, Shannon Miller, said his son and a group of friends had discovered the barbecue skewer in the grass in a field behind the house in Harrisonville, Missouri, about 50 kilometres south of Kansas City. "One of the boys stuck the forked end of the skewer into the ground to keep anyone from stepping on it. "As the climbed up into the treehouse they disturbed a very large nest of yellow jackets. The swarm attacked and Xavier fell to the ground landing face first onto the barbecue skewer. "He ran inside and left with my wife to go to the hospital. He was more concerned with the yellow jackets than the skewer," Miller told NBC News. The boy apparently said "I'm dying, Mum" as they rushed to hospital. He was transferred to the University of Kansas Hospital, where doctors said it was a miracle that the skewer had missed his , brain, spinal cord and major blood vessels. "It was one in a million for it to pass five or six inches through the front of the face to the back and not have hit these things," said neurosurgery director Koji Ebersole as reported by the Kansas City Star. But Ebersole and his team managed to remove it. The neurosurgeon later showed a 3-D graphic of the boy's skull pierced by the metal object. "I just can't believe that when you put those two things together. This is the carotid artery. This is the vertebral artery and this is the device passing immediately adjacent to those vessels," he said. The operation was all the more tricky due to the skewer's shape. If it twisted it could have made the injuries worse. Doctors waited till the next day to remove it to get the necessary team in place, meaning the young victim had to wait overnight with the skewer still planted in his head. Xavier, they say, was "remarkably resilient and brave". They now think the lucky boy could make a complete recovery.

          TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY PARKS & REC DIRECTOR MARK McHENRY RETIRING!!!      Cache   Translate Page      


After more than 40 years of dedicated service, the leader of a beloved Kansas City institution is stepping down.

Many thanks to AN AWESOME TKC TIPSTER who informs our blog community . . .

"Mark McHenry is retiring from Parks and Recreation at the end of the year."

Mr. McHenry is one of the most respected and tireless advocates for KCMO Parks and the department has made tremendous advances under his stewardship.

Nevertheless, this is TKC so even with high praise we must also share a bit of salt . . .

Two things . . .

NOTICE THAT KC PARKS DIRECTOR MARK McHENRY IS OUT BEFORE THE MLK BLVD DECISION IS FINALIZED!!!

The reality . . . The issue is tougher for KC Parks than most realize as they strive to protect the historic legacy of local landmarks and have voiced opposition against the demands of a group of East side ministers. While KC Parks serves thousands upon thousands from the urban core, this politically charged debate sets up the institution as the bad guy.

More importantly . . .

Insiders are desperate for an outside hire.

Terry might be the shoo-in but it's the hope of many within the dept. that the search for a new director is advertised far and wide in order to find someone who can live up the the sterling reputation of Mr. McHenry.

Today's meeting was mostly just an exercise in propaganda with a great many talking points that should look good on campaign mailers.

The main problem that was mostly ignored . . .

RISING KANSAS CITY UTILITY COSTS THAT OUTPACE SIMILAR CITIES MAKE LIFE EVEN HARDER FOR LOW INCOME RESIDENTS!!!

Add that problem to more sales taxes and KCMO fees and uplifting talk from politicos quickly falls apart.

The official line:

KSHB: KC officials define what is considered affordable housing

Money line:

One question the policy answers is the definition of affordable housing for Kansas City, defined as no more than 30 percent of a household’s annual median income.

It further brackets income levels to reflect what percentage of the city’s median income that household is bringing in. For example, housing programs could be targeted to help families making 60 percent of AMI Average Median Income - ($30,741).

          TKC MUST READ!!! TRANSIT ACTIVIST CLAY CHASTAIN WARNS PREZ TRUMP ADMINISTRATION AGAINST FUNDING KANSAS CITY STREETCAR EXTENSION!!!       Cache   Translate Page      


After news of a growing price tag for the controversial local transit effort, the most prolific petitioner in Kansas City notes his opposition against the project.

Take a look:

Mayoral candidate Clay Chastain says it's time to stop the streetcar expansion in its tracks by denying that con job federal funding

Kansas City's highly questionable and obsolete streetcar expansion has been a con job from the get go and should be denied the $151 million in applied for federal transit funding. That would put the quietus to expanding the slow-moving in-traffic streetcar from downtown-where it functions reasonably well (in that very compact environment) and needs to stay.

How does expanding (to the Plaza) a slow-moving, in-traffic streetcar (attached to overhead wires) improve transit for those who need it most? Even streetcar advocates, like Russ Mensa Johnson, have admitted that the streetcar is more about catering to the needs of tourists and stimulating downtown economic development than it is improving Kansas City's woeful diesel bus-based transit system. Kansas City's current failed transit system gobbles up $96 million a year in taxpayer assistance and yet is only attractive to and used by 7% of the city's residents. Add to our city's failed diesel bus system a $316 million obsolete streetcar line to the Plaza and you have the making of a transit absurdity in Kansas City.

So does President Trump's Administration and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) really think it wise to sink $151 million of national taxpayer monies into an obsolete transit "novelty" essentially for the benefit of tourists and private economic development? And, is this not more of the taxpayer-subsidized private development Kansas City's local government is so fond of catering to with one taxpayer hand out after the next?


Furthermore, the streetcar expansion project was approved by only a handful of hand picked voters after it was previously rejected by citywide voters. Thus, the streetcar expansion should be denied federal funding because not only is it an obsolete form of transit, but it was also foisted upon the Kansas City community via a limited and restricted election that deliberately did an end around the stated will of citywide voters.

We desperately need improved transit in Kansas City. But, a rail system crawling along in traffic attached to overhead wires is to modernizing transit what a mule is to modernizing agriculture.

President Trump and the FTA need to know there is a far superior transit improvement petition-based plan being circulated among voters and readied to go on the April 2018 KCMO primary ballot. That petition initiative (from the people) seeks to modernize the city's transit system around an expansive citywide network of rapid rail, electric buses and new transit Greenways (for transit, cycling and pedestrian use only.)

The streetcar expansion project is a swamp critter born out of the foul darkened waters of Kansas City's political establishment. President Trump and the FTA would be wise to pull the plug on the current swamp in which it thrives by denying it federal funding.

P.S. Where do the other mayoral candidates stand on this important civic issue largely being ignored by Kansas City's own "Fake News" media including the Star, KCUR public radio, the Pitch and the Kansas City Business Journal?

This press release is being forwarded to President Trump's Administration and the FTA.

Clay Chastain...the only conservative, opposition and independent-thinking mayoral candidate in the race.

          NASCAR Playoff-Vorschau 2018: Die Strecken       Cache   Translate Page      

Von Las Vegas bis Miami: Auf zehn Strecken, verteilt auf zehn US-Bundesstaaten, werden an den kommenden zehn Wochenenden die vier Playoff-Stufen der Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series 2018 ausgetragen.

In der "Round of 16" kämpfen 16 Fahrer um den Einzug in die "Round of 12", in der zwölf Fahrer um den Einzug in die "Round of 8" kämpfen. In dieser kämpfen acht Fahrer um den Einzug in die "Championship 4", in der schließlich vier Fahrer um den Titel des Champions in der Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series 2018 kämpfen.

Bezüglich der Strecken hat sich in dieser Saison verglichen mit den Vorjahren einiges getan. Playoff-Auftakt ist nicht mehr in Chicago, sondern in Las Vegas, wo zum ersten Mal ein Playoff-Rennen stattfindet. Auch Richmond richtet erstmals ein Playoff-Rennen aus. Und die als "Roval" bezeichnete Kombination aus Oval und Infield-Kurs in Charlotte ist sogar erstmals überhaupt im NASCAR-Kalender vertreten.

Unterm Strich befinden sich in den diesjährigen Playoffs vier Intermediate-Ovale, zwei Ein-Meilen-Ovale, zwei Short-Tracks, ein als "Roval" verkappter Rundkurs und ein Superspeedway. Für Abwechslung ist also (endlich) gesorgt.

          Schlaglichter: Fleischspieß im Kopf - US-Junge überlebt      Cache   Translate Page      

Harrisonville (dpa) - Dass der zehnjährige Xavier noch am Leben ist, grenzt nach Ansicht seiner Ärzte an ein Wunder: Ein Fleischspieß hatte sich in den Kopf des Jungen aus dem US-Staat Missouri gebohrt, wie der «Kansas City Star» berichtete. Ereignet hatte sich das Unglück als der Junge in seinem Baumhaus spielte. Als er von Insekten attackiert wurde, stürzte er ab und landete auf dem Fleischspieß aus Metall. Dieser bohrte sich durch sein Gesicht in den Kopf. In einer riskanten Operation entfernten Ärzte in der Uniklinik von Kansas den Metallspieß aus seinem Kopf. Sie gehen davon aus, dass er kaum oder keine bleibenden Schäden davontragen werde.

The Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals kickoff week 2 on Thursday night.

CLEVELAND, Ohio - The battle of the AFC continues in Week 2 when the Baltimore Ravens play the Cincinnati Bengals in Thursday night football on the NFL Network.

The Bengals are coming off a come-from-behind victory over the Indianapolis Colts, and the Ravens defeated Buffalo by 44.

The two teams split the season series last year with the Bengals winning the regular season finale in Baltimore.

Sunday begins with the Kansas City Chiefs at the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Steelers have won four out of the last five against the Chiefs. The Steelers will play their second straight game without Le'Veon Bell, who continues to hold out with his contract dispute.

The Steelers will play for the second time with second-year back James Connor, who had two touchdowns and nearly two hundred yards against the Cleveland Browns.

The New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys play in Sunday's late game. The Cowboys sputtered on offense last week and the Giants, winners of only three games last season, lost in their opener to Jacksonville.

          Vleespen boort zich door hoofd jongen, maar operatie succesvol      Cache   Translate Page      

Een jongen uit Missouri heeft een bizar ongeluk overleefd. Xavier (10) viel bij het spelen met vriendjes uit een boom toen hij werd aangevallen door een zwerm wespen. Hij viel met zijn hoofd op een vleespen, die hij en zijn vrienden even daarvoor hadden gevonden en in de grond hadden gestoken.

De jongen werd meteen overgebracht naar een ziekenhuis in Kansas City, waar de spies met succes uit zijn hoofd kon worden gehaald. De vleespen raakte wonderbaarlijk geen vitale delen. "De spies miste de cruciale structuur van de hersenen, een oog en de ruggenmerg", zei de behandelend arts.

In totaal kwamen er bijna honderd medewerkers van het ziekenhuis aan te pas om de vleespen veilig te kunnen verwijderen. In de video zie je hoe artsen de spies na de operatie aanbieden aan Xavier:

De artsen noemen het "een mirakel" dat de jongen alweer aan het herstellen is van zijn ongeluk. De verwachting is dat hij nog twee weken nodig heeft om weer helemaal de oude te zijn.


          Gelingt den Ravens das nächste Schützenfest?       Cache   Translate Page      

Mit dem Thursday Night Game zwischen den Cincinnati Bengals und den Baltimore Ravens startet die NFL in ihren zweiten Spieltag (NFL-LIVESCORES und LIVE bei DAZN). Mit einem krachenden 47:3 haben die Ravens die Buffalo Bills am ersten Spieltag aus dem heimischen Stadion gefegt. (Hier zum NFL Spielplan 2018/19)

Gegen die Bengals streben sie ein ähnliches Feuerwerk an, dies dürfte aber nicht so einfach werden. Denn auch die Bengals durften sich an Tag eins über ein positives Ergebnis freuen. Gegen die Indianapolis Colts gelang der Franchise um Quarterback Andy Dalton ebenfalls ein Sieg. 

ANZEIGE: Die NFL bei DAZN. Jetzt kostenlosen Testmonat sichern!

Die Ravens überzeugten am ersten Spieltag aber nicht nur mit ihrer guten Offensive. Vor allem die Verteidigung stand sicher, es gelangen zwei Interceptions.

Rodgers-Einsatz noch unsicher

Spannend wird es auch am Sonntag im Division-internen Duell zwischen den Green Bay Packers und den Minnesota Vikings. Nach seiner Verletzung im ersten Spiel gegen die Chicago Bears ist der Einsatz von Quarterback-Superstar Aaron Rodgers noch nicht sicher. 

Gäste-Coach Mike Zimmer hat an einer Teilnahme des 34-Jährigen aber gar keinen Zweifel. "Er kann über Wasser gehen, daher bin ich mir ganz sicher, dass er spielen wird", so der Trainer.  

ANZEIGE: Jetzt das aktuelle Trikot von Aaron Rodgers sichern - hier geht es zum Shop

Auch für den Deutschen Equanimeous St. Brown könnte es wieder erst werden. Im ersten Spiel kam er für die Packers bereits zum Einsatz, gegen das Team von Quarterback Kirk Cousins hofft der deutsche Wide Receiver auf seine nächste Chance. 

Patriots erwartet Bollwerk

Ein enorm anspruchsvolles Duell erwartet auch die New England Patriots. Die Offense um Tom Brady muss bei den Jacksonville Jaguars antreten. Mit Blake Bortles haben die Jaguars zwar nicht den passsichersten Spielmacher, die Defense lässt aber kaum etwas zu und dürfte es Rob Gronkowski und Co. nicht einfach machen. 

Am ersten Spieltag gelang beiden Teams je ein knapper Sieg. Die Patriots setzten sich mit 27:20 gegen die Houston Texans durch, Jacksonville schlug die New York Giants mit 20:15.

          Without City Investment, The Kansas City Zoo's Aquarium Project Could Be Dead      Cache   Translate Page      
The chairman of the Kansas City Zoo Board says a $75 million proposed aquarium project might be dead if the city can't come up with $7 million. “I’m concerned that it does not happen without that investment, without that partnership,” Todd LaSala said Thursday after appearing before City Council's Finance and Governance Committee. The zoo has $22 million in private pledges to help pay for the 65,000 square foot aquarium. In addition, money will be used from the Zoo District's sales tax. The zoo hoped the city would use $7 million from a recent general obligation (GO) bond issue to pay for the project. LaSala said some donors want to know that the city will invest in a building that it will own. “They really want to know that the city is going to invest in its own asset as well. It’s a fair thing for them to ask.” But there seems to be little appetite on the council to use GO bonds for the zoo project. The committee approved a resolution from Councilman Kevin McManus that directs the

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was an assistant coach with the Packers for seven seasons under Mike Holmgren when Brett Favre played quarterback in Green Bay. If former Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali‘s thoughts on new Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes prove to be valid Joe Thuney Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/joe-thuney-jersey-cheap) , Reid might have a Favre reincarnation at his disposal in Kansas City. In an interview with the NFL Network on Wednesday, Hali said he sees similarities between Mahomes and the Hall of Fame quarterback. “You’re going to get a complete player,” Hali said of Mahomes. “I mean, he’s a smart player. He can throw the ball. Athletically, he’s gifted. You don’t have to coach it. “In practice I’d watch him just look guys off. I mean, Eric Berry, you look him off and complete the ball. He did it to Marcus Peters a lot. So, people don’t know what’s coming. I don’t want to hype him Reuben Foster Jersey (http://www.49erscheapstore.com/reuben-foster-jersey-cheap) , but I compare him to Brett Favre. He runs around the field and he throws the ball and he’s just having fun.” Hali was able to watch Mahomes in practice throughout the season and came away bullish on his potential. The trade of Alex Smith to Washington over the offseason cleared the decks for Mahomes to assume the starting job in Kansas City. However, Mahomes is still a completely unproven commodity at the NFL level. He started the final game of last season as Smith was rested ahead of the playoffs. Mahomes completed 22 of 35 passes for 284 yards with a touchdown and two interception. Even in the limited sample size, Mahomes’ talent showed itself in a few occasions during his only regular season action of his rookie campaign. Reid clearly felt excited about Mahomes’ potential as well in trading up in the 2017 NFL Draft to select him 10th overall. While an expectation of becoming Favre version 2.0 is certainly unfair at this stage, Mahomes will have the chance to succeed under Reid in Kansas City. Francisco Lindor had an exceptional Monday after a very good Sunday. Lindor homered twice, including a grand slam, and finished with a career-high seven RBIs as the Cleveland Indians beat the Kansas City Royals 9-3 on Monday night. On Sunday, he had two doubles and a solo homer in Oakland. Lindor homered in the fourth after Yan Gomes singled and Jakob Junis hit Tyler Naquin and Rajai Davis with pitches. He added a three-run homer in the sixth to finish Junis’ evening. ”One was a changeup and the other one was a slider,” said Lindor Trey Flowers Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/trey-flowers-jersey-cheap) , who has 23 home runs. ”My approach is hit the ball and if it goes out it goes out. It was a good pitch to hit (on the grand slam). I was just trying to get one guy in. I’m not a power hitter. Just get a good pitch to hit and drive it.” Lindor has 17 home runs and 54 RBIs in 54 games against the Royals. ”Just a routine day for him, today and yesterday,” Indians starter Corey Kluber said. ”He continues to get better, which is kind of scary.” Kluber (12-4), who failed to make it out of the second inning in his previous start at St. Louis, gave up two runs in the first, but little after that. He allowed three runs and seven hits, walked none and struck out five over six innings. Davis had three hits and scored three runs. ”I got myself into trouble with a couple of hit batters and good teams are going to take advantage of that Max Unger Jersey (http://www.saintscheapstore.com/max-unger-jersey-cheap) ,” Junis said. Junis (5-10) has lost his last seven starts and is tied with teammate Jason Hammel for most losses in the American League. He has yielded a major league-high 24 home runs, including 12 in his last five starts over 27 innings. ”You worry about his confidence more than anything else,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. ”Again, it’s an easy fix. When you’re off the side of the slider, it’s gonna be a cement mixer. He started off good, just didn’t end that good.” Whit Merrifield homered on Kluber’s third pitch for his fourth career leadoff home run. Salvador Perez singled home Mike Moustakas, who had doubled, in an 11-pitch at-bat for the other Kansas City run in the first. Jorge Bonifacio logged his first RBI of the season in the Kansas City sixth after being suspended the first 80 games for taking a performance enhancing drug. The Royals have lost 23 of their last 28 games. They are tied with the Baltimore Orioles for the most losses in the majors with 54. They scored four runs or fewer for the 23rd time in the last 24 games. ROYALS SIGN FIRST-ROUND PICK The Royals signed right-hander Jackson Kowar Shaq Mason Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/shaq-mason-jersey-cheap) , a first-round compensation selection and the 33rd overall pick, to a $2.118.700 signing bonus. He went 10-5 with a 3.04 ERA as a Florida junior. GOODBYE LEBRON LeBron James has left the Cleveland Cavaliers to join the Los Angeles Lakers. ”If someone gave me $154 million I’d probably go somewhere too,” Indians manager Terry Francona said. ”He did what he said he was going to do. He got them a championship. When you’re a free agent, you’ve earned that right. I will miss him, because I loved going to games when he played. It’s hard to begrudge somebody. He earned it.” TRAINER’S ROOM Indians: RF Lonnie Chisenhall was a late scratch with a strained left calf. Francona said Chisenhall would definitely go on the disabled list. … RHP Danny Salazar underwent season-ending shoulder surgery in Dallas. ”It just kind of came to a point,” Francona said. ”That’s the last option. You try everything else before you go into somebody’s shoulder. The good side is there was no structural (damage). The rotator cuff was good. They cleaned him out. It’s a shame we lost him for the whole year.” UP NEXT Indians: RHP Shane Bieber is 3-0 with a 2.22 ERA in his first four big league starts. Royals: LHP Danny Duffy is winless in six home starts this season, going 0-3 with a 6.32 ERA. — Omari Spellman Jersey (http://www.basketballofficialauthentic.com ba-jerseys/atlanta-hawks/omari-spellman-jersey)

It’s been a week full of injuries Matt Bosher Jersey (http://www.falconscheapstore.com/matt-bosher-jersey-cheap) , as more and more pitchers hit the disabled list, making arms a premium once again for Fantasy owners. He’s not a pitcher, but Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez headlines the list of injured players, as the catcher will miss 3-4 weeks for the second straight season. There are names like John Hicks, Austin Romine, Tucker Barnhart and Tom Murphy who deserve to be owned in Sanchez’ absence. Now, let’s look at some pitchers to help hold down your rotation. PLAYERS TO PICK UP ZACH EFLIN, SP, Philadelphia Phillies (42 percent owned in Yahoo) – First it was Nick Pivetta, now it’s Zach Eflin. The Phillies are having pitchers who were no more than a healthy arm last season turn into legit standouts. Eflin increased his velocity this year, and he’s adding more swings and misses than a season ago. Like Pivetta, it’s smart to grab him before everyone else in your league takes notice. ZACK WHEELER, SP, New York Mets (12 percent) – Like Jacob deGrom earlier this season, the Mets struggle to win games for Wheeler. That’s OK, though Mark Duper Jersey (http://www.dolphinscheapstore.com/mark-duper-jersey-cheap) , as he is holding his own as of late with a reasonable ERA and a good strikeout rate. He won’t live up to the prospect hype that he had when he was moving through the system, but he can be a useful pitcher for your Fantasy roster. SHANE BIEBER, SP, Cleveland Indians (57 percent) – Bieber was thought to be a guy who wouldn’t register big strikeout numbers, but would help Fantasy owners out in ERA, WHIP and Wins. Well, in a small sample, he’s averaging more than a strikeout per inning. Add him wherever he’s available. ADALBERTO MONDESI, OF, Kansas City Royals (1 percent) – Speed is hard to find. Kevin Kiermaier was a suggested pickup last week as a multi-category contributor, but Mondesi is a deep-league add if you’re desperate for speed. TWO-START PITCHERS TO STREAM BRENT SUTER, SP, Milwaukee Brewers (39 percent) – It’s not a great week for two-start pitchers, and Suter underachieved in a juicy matchup against the Royals on Wednesday. He’s worth running out again, though, as he gets the Twins and the Braves in a two-start matchup. KYLE GIBSON Devin McCourty Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/devin-mccourty-jersey-cheap) , SP, Minnesota Twins (34 percent) – Speaking of failing to capitalize, Gibson struggled against the White Sox on Wednesday. Forget that start, though, as he’s been a quality start machine this year. He’ll face a less-than-favorable team in the Brewers in his first start, but he’ll wrap the week up against Baltimore, who struggled mightily against right-handed pitching. NATHAN EOVALDI, SP, Tampa Bay Rays (7 percent) – Eovaldi impressed this week against the Nationals, allowing just one hit over six innings. He has a date with the Marlins and Mets next week; both of which are terrific matchups. HITTERS TO STREAM SCOTT SCHEBLER, OF, Cincinnati Reds (22 percent) – Jesse Winker is starting to come around for the Reds, but Schebler has been the 22nd-best outfielder in Yahoo leagues over the past 30 games as the leadoff hitter for the Reds. LOGAN MORRISON, 1B, Minnesota Twins (13 percent) – The Twins have seven games next week in Milwaukee and against the Orioles‘ bad pitching staff. There’s only one lefty on the slate, which means Morrison is a sneaky streamer to get in your lineup. ALEN HANSON Adam Thielen Jersey (http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/adam-thielen-jersey-cheap) , 2B/OF, San Francisco Giants (5 percent) – Hanson has been playing regularly for the Giants, and he’s a contributor across multiple categories, with his standout category being batting average. With three games in Colorado and four more against the all-of-the-sudden questionable St. Louis rotation, Hanson could fill the stat sheets for Fantasy owners. — This column was provided to The Associated Press by the Fantasy Sports Network, Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston reportedly is bracing for a suspension arising from a failure to report to the league the allegations of an Uber driver arising from a March 2016 incident. While it’s possible that the “failure to report” angle is being used to take some of the sting out of the possibility that Winston will be suspended in whole or in part for the underling incident, the Personal Conduct Policy contains no ambiguity regarding a player’s obligations when aware of a claim of off-field misconduct. “Clubs and players are obligated to promptly report any matter that comes to their attention (through, for example, victim or witness reports, law enforcement, or media reports) that may constitute a violation of this Policy,” the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy states. “Clubs are expected to educate their employees on this obligation to report. . . . Failure to report an incident will be grounds for disciplinary action. This obligation to report is broader than simply reporting an arrest; it requires reporting to the league any incident that comes to the club鈥檚 or player鈥檚 attention which, if the allegations were true, would constitute a violation of the Personal Conduct Policy.” This obligation applies even if the player firmly believes the allegations are false. “If the allegations are true” is the standard, and in this case Winston apparently knew enough (based on his banishment from using Uber) to know that allegations had been made that, if true Nick Perry Jersey (http://www.packerscheapstore.com ick-perry-jersey-cheap) , would have violated the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy. That said, it’s hard to fault Winston for keeping his head low and his mouth shut. It’s human nature to sit tight and to see whether something that could become problematic blows over. However, the Personal Conduct Policy mandates more. The policy mandates more even though the NFL hardly has a reputation among players for hearing the players’ side of the story and giving them a full and fair chance to defend themselves. Last year, Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott found himself trapped in the pouch of a kangaroo court that gave him no meaningful opportunity to question his accuser. Indeed, the process that banished Elliott ultimately ignored the opinions of the investigator who had interviewed the accuser on multiple occasions. Then there’s the reality that, if Winston had self-reported, someone at 345 Park Avenue would have leaked, either to a colleague at NFL Media or to Schefty, that Winston had self-reported a potential violation of the Personal Conduct Policy. How would the average football fan have reacted to that one? Probably by concluding that Winston’s decision to self-report must mean that he did something wrong. Regardless, the policy is clear — and teams have a strong incentive to make sure players understand that anything and everything that potentially falls under the Personal Conduct Policy must be communicated to the team. The Buccaneers obviously didn’t do a good enough job of that; otherwise, Winston would have self-reported the potential violation.

Derrick Johnson's tenure with the Kansas City Chiefs is coming to an end. The franchise's career tackles leader and a four-time Pro Bowl selection Colin Kaepernick Jersey (http://www.49erscheapstore.com/colin-kaepernick-jersey-cheap) , Johnson will become a free agent when his contract expires at the start of the new league year March 14. He intends to keep playing, it just won't be in the familiar red, yellow and white of the Chiefs. "I love Kansas City and this fan base. They've always had my back," Johnson said in a statement put out by the Chiefs, who made the rare decision to announce publicly that Johnson would not be returning. That in itself speaks volumes to how much Johnson has meant to the organization. "I'm grateful I had the opportunity to spend 13 years in a place I love," he said. "I plan on playing for several more years because I love the game so much, but I look forward to retiring as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs when my career is over." Johnson was the Chiefs' first-round pick in 2005, though his career got off to a rocky start. At one point early on, he found himself riding the bench, and was even labeled a bust. But Johnson eventually earned his starting job back, and went on to appear in 182 games with 169 starts. He piled up 1,262 tackles to easily shatter the franchise record, had 27陆 sacks and picked off 14 passes, returning four of them for touchdowns. He had a career-best 179 tackles in 2011 Jarius Wright Jersey (http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/jarius-wright-jersey-cheap) , when he was voted the Chiefs' team MVP. "Few players in recent history have meant more to the Chiefs franchise and the Kansas City community than Derrick Johnson," Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said. "His tireless work ethic and passion for the game made him one of the most productive defensive players to ever wear a Chiefs uniform and one of the most respected players both in our locker room and around the league. "Over the last 13 seasons, Derrick represented himself and the Chiefs organization with integrity and class, and he will always be a part of our Chiefs family." Johnson piled up his impressive stats despite missing part of two seasons with ruptured Achilles tendons. He returned from the first one as good as ever, earning his most recent Pro Bowl trip in 2015, but the second seemed to finally take a step out of his legs this past season. He slowly lost playing time to younger teammates in the middle of the Kansas City defense. "I'm grateful I had the opportunity to coach a player like Derrick," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said in a statement. "He's a passionate football player and a natural leader. I value the amount of quality work he put in every day for us, including teaching our younger players what it means to be a pro. "I think he will make an incredible coach when he is done playing the game, if he chooses." The Chiefs have been trying to get younger the past couple of seasons, particularly on defense, and Johnson is unlikely to be the last veteran to go. Fellow linebacker Tamba Hali has been dealing with bad knees for years, and the Chiefs are expected to release him in the coming weeks. Johnson signed a three-year, $21 million contract extension in 2016, but he had restructured the deal a year ago to help the Chiefs free up salary cap space. In doing so Jimmy Graham Jersey (http://www.packerscheapstore.com/jimmy-graham-jersey-cheap) , he voided the final year, and that made it simple for the Chiefs to move on. His loss will be felt not only on the field, but in the locker room and community. Johnson often served as a team spokesman, always showing up at his locker to speak with reporters regardless of whether the team was winning or losing. And the role he played in mentoring young players, such as linebackers Reggie Ragland and Ukeme Eligwe, should help the organization for years to come. "Letting go of a player like Derrick is particularly tough because of how much respect I have for him as a player and a person," Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said. "He's had a tremendous career in Kansas City and we wish him nothing but the best moving forward." Long after the Detroit Tigers broke the game open, JaCoby Jones made the play of the day. Maybe even the play of the year in the Comerica Park outfield. Jones’ twisting, backhanded catch in the sixth inning took a home run away from Adrian Beltre in Detroit’s 7-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday. The Tigers scored all their runs in the first, chasing Cole Hamels before that inning was over. It was still 7-0 when Jones made his spectacular catch in left-center field. Beltre’s drive was headed toward the Texas bullpen, but Jones came over from center and jumped, reaching over the wall with his left hand and backhanding the ball. Jones’ momentum spun him around a bit, and he fell forward onto the ground, holding on for the out. ”You have to time it Philip Rivers Jersey (http://www.chargerscheapstore.com/philip-rivers-jersey-cheap) ,” Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said. ”As you saw, his whole arm went over the fence, and he snagged it behind. It’s a timing thing, and you have to be athletic to be able to do some of those things.” Jones did not stay in the clubhouse to talk to reporters afterward. Hamels (4-8) retired only two batters for the Rangers in his shortest start since 2010. Mike Fiers (6-5) allowed a run and five hits in six innings. He struck out six with one walk. Rougned Odor hit a solo homer for Texas immediately after Beltre was robbed by Jones. Shin-Soo Choo doubled twice for the Rangers to extend his on-base streak to 46 games, tying Julio Franco’s club record set in 1993. Niko Goodrum had four hits for the Tigers. Nicholas Castellanos opened the scoring with a solo homer with one out in the first. John Hicks added an RBI single, and Jose Iglesias hit an infield single with two outs and the bases loaded to make it 3-0. Hamels still would have made it out of the inning, but center fielder Delino DeShields misplayed a line drive by Jones for an error , allowing three more runs to score. ”It just knuckled on me,” DeShields said. ”I was trying to stay with it, but it swerved on me at the last second. It’s frustrating, because you are doing everything you can to make the play, but he hit it right on the screws and right at me, and that’s when a ball will take off on you.” Mikie Mahtook followed with an RBI double, and Hamels was replaced after allowing five hits Bruce Irvin Jersey (http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/bruce-irvin-jersey-cheap) , two walks and three earned runs. He threw 41 pitches. LOOKING BACK It was the shortest start for Hamels since June 1, 2010, when he also lasted two-thirds of an inning for Philadelphia at Atlanta. That start was shortened because of a rain delay. Hamels had gone at least five innings in each of his first 17 starts this year. ”By the time he gave up the double, he was pushing 40 pitches, and that’s my limit,” Texas manager Jeff Banister said. ”Once you get to 40 in one inning, you are pitching fatigued, and it is too much of a risk to leave him out there. I’m not going to do that to one of my pitchers.” ON A ROLL Goodrum had his second four-hit game in a week. He also went 4 for 4 at Toronto on July 1. He’s hitting .464 (13 for 28) over his last seven games. ”I didn’t know that,” he said. ”The only stats I can see is what they show on the board of everyone.” TRAINER’S ROOM Rangers: SS Elvis Andrus appeared to foul a pitch off his left leg in the fifth but remained in the game. He was taken out in the eighth. UP NEXT Michael Fulmer (3-7) takes the mound for Detroit against Austin Bibens-Dirkx (1-2) in the series finale Sunday. — Adidas Patrick Kane Jersey (http://www.officialhockeyusashop.com/chicago-blackhawks/patrick-kane-jersey)

Boulevard Releasing Two Barrel-Aged Great Eight Sample PacksFrom Boulevard:

As we ease out of the heat of summer and head towards cooler months when bigger, bolder, boozier beers are not only welcome, but downright appropriate, we’re excited to share that two new Barrel-Aged Great Eight sample packs will be hitting shelves starting on September 17th! Composed of two bottles each of two year-round and two limited release beers, these barrel-aged beauties are perfect for sharing with friends or for having an amazing night alone.

Given that barrel-aging beer, by nature, is a fickle endeavor that’s also limited by the fact that aging space and the barrels themselves are finite, our friends in the Greater Kansas City Area will see a Barrel-Aged Great Eight composed of beers produced in smaller runs than the beers that will be distributed nationally. With that said, let’s meet 2018’s Barrel-Aged Great Eight sample packs.

Both iterations of the Barrel-Aged Great Eight will contain two bottles each of Bourbon Barrel Quad and Whiskey Barrel Stout.

Bourbon Barrel Quad

  • Abbey-style quadrupel aged in oak bourbon barrels for up to three years
  • Warm and toasty with aromas of bourbon, oak, subtle tart cherry and vanilla
  • 11.2% ABV & 26 IBUs
  • Pairs with bacon-wrapped dates, dark chocolate torte, washed rind cheeses

Whiskey Barrel Stout

  • A blend of freshly brewed beer and beer aged up to a year in both first- and second-use whiskey barrels
  • Robust flavors of vanilla, espresso, whiskey, chocolate and roasted grain
  • 11.8% ABV & 32 IBUs
  • Pairs with roasted leg of lamb, hickory-smoked bleu cheese, tiramisu
THE BARREL-AGED GREAT EIGHT IN THE KANSAS CITY AREA WILL INCLUDE TWO BOTTLES EACH OF:

Cognac Cask Aged Dark Saison

  • Aromas of nutmeg, leather and earthy menthol meld with sweet caramel notes, dark fruit and vanilla
  • Spicy cardamom and sweet orange peel accent floral notes provided by Hallertau Blanc hops
  • 11.7% ABV & 10 IBUs
  • Pairs with oysters on the half shell, aged Gouda, baklava

Tequila Cask Aged Imperial Stout

  • Flavors of caramel, honey and anise gained during aging add complexity to a near syrupy-bodied obsidian stout
  • Subtle earth/herbal hops and notes of bittersweet chocolate, cloves and charred oak provide balance
  • 12.1% ABV & 23 IBUs
  • Pairs with chicken mole enchiladas, smoked gouda, raspberry torte
THE NATIONALLY DISTRIBUTED BARREL-AGED GREAT EIGHT WILL INCLUDE TWO BOTTLES EACH OF:

Brandy Barrel Belgian-Style Golden Ale

  • Aromas of vanilla, cloves and peaches imparted by Belgian yeast and American brandy barrels
  • 12.4% ABV & 20 IBUs
  • Pairs with beer battered fried fish, triple crème brie, fruit pastries

Jamaican Rum Barrel Imperial Stout

  • Aged for one year in Jamaican rum barrels
  • Notes of chocolate, coconut and vanilla with a warming finish featuring espresso, caramel and sweet rum
  • 14.6% ABV & 18 IBUs
  • Pairs with dark chocolate, sweet & spicy BBQ, jerk chicken, rum cake

          Tinkering With The Past, An Artist Introduces Kansas City To Civil Defense Escape Scooters      Cache   Translate Page      
Randy Regier creates fiction with his art. Not in the sense that a painting of a scene that never took place is fiction, but in the way a teenage boy might get a kick out of placing an odd object in his house to make his mom pause. When pressed about the mysterious item, that teenager might say, “But, Mom, the garden gnome has always been next to the coffee mugs. Don’t you remember?” In Regier’s case, the Kansas City-based artist has created a civil defense escape scooter for display during Kansas City’s two-month Open Spaces arts festival. But he doesn’t mean to play a joke on anyone or, as he puts it, “make too light of a really dark chapter that’s not yet closed.” On a recent windy morning on the sidewalk in front of River Market Antiques , where the scooter is displayed in a front window, Regier explains, “I have a bit of a reputation for playing fast and loose with history, but my intentions are more about exploration than they are about deceit. I never intend to deceive.” From

A $63 million boutique hotel that backers say would be the most luxurious in the metro is being proposed across Wyandotte Street from the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. Whitney Kerr Sr., a longtime Kansas City real estate magnate with Cushman & Wakefield, and veteran Colorado hotel developer Eric Holtze, of EJ Holtze Corp., want to build the 13-story project on vacant land controlled by the Performing Arts Center just north of the Webster House garage. The working title for their 145-room project is “Hotel Bravo!” and the project has the support of the Kauffman Foundation. “We want a striking look and experience for the guests,” Holtze said. “Most rooms face west toward the Performing Arts Center. When you’re in a room, you’ll know exactly where you are.” The developers have an agreement with PAC Holding, Inc. to acquire the land and J.E. Dunn Construction would be the contractor.

          Anderson's Homer Leads White Sox Past Royals       Cache   Translate Page      
Tim Anderson kept the White Sox in the game with his glove before he won it with his bat.

Anderson hit a two-run homer in the 12th inning, and Chicago beat the Kansas City Royals 4-2 on Wednesday night.

Anderson's blast off Burch Smith (1-5), the sixth Royals pitcher, landed just beyond the fence in left-center. It was his 19th homer this season.

"It was a good way to cap off the night," Anderson said. "I was looking fastball. The at-bat before that, they started me off with a slider. The first pitch was a fastball up, and I had a feeling that he would throw me another one. I was able to jump on it."

In the bottom of the 11th, Rosell Herrera lined out to Anderson at shortstop, and he threw to third to double off pinch-runner Brett Phillips.

"It's a bang-bang play," he said. "I guess (Phillips) didn't think I could jump. It was close, but it was a good play to get us out of the jam."

Juan Minaya (2-2) pitched two scoreless innings for the win. Hector Santiago, the eighth Chicago pitcher, picked up his second save in as many chances. Jose Rondon also homered for the White Sox, who snapped a seven-game skid, one game short of their season-worst losing streak.

"Tim put a good swing on it," manager Rick Renteria said. "All the guys in the dugout were hoping he would do something there, and he did.

"Both teams did a good job of protecting the strike zone and limiting the scoring."

Adalberto Mondesi tied a career high with four hits and drove in both of Kansas City's runs.

Both teams wasted plenty of scoring chances. The Royals had five runners retired on the bases, while the White Sox left seven men on base.

Royals starter Eric Skogland pitched five innings, allowing two runs on two hits, with two walks and two strikeouts. He made his first start since May 25 after a long stint on the disabled list with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament. He returned Sept. 4 and had pitched two scoreless innings in relief.

"(Skogland) threw the ball really, really well," Kansas City manager Ned Yost said. "Our pitching did a great job. ... We just couldn't find ways."

Carlos Rodon pitched six innings, allowing two runs on five hits.

"My command wasn't great today," Rodon said. "The defense turned some nice double plays, I got through six and the boys got the win."

Whit Merrifield stole two bases to bring his season total to 35, a new career high. He led the AL with 34 swipes last season and tops the league again this year.

After Merrifield stole second in the third inning, Mondesi drove him in with a single for the game's first run. Mondesi stole his 22nd base, his 17th since the All-Star break.

The White Sox answered with two runs in the fourth on Rondon's homer to left, scoring Avisail Garcia, who reached on a two-out walk.

The Royals tied it in the fifth but had a chance for a bigger inning. Ryan O'Hearn reached on a one-out walk, and Merrifield followed with a double to the wall in left center. But O'Hearn went too far around third and was picked off. Merrifield then stole third and scored on Mondesi's second RBI single.

The White Sox had runners on second and third with one out in the seventh, and then loaded the bases with two outs. But Glenn Sparkman induced a fielder's-choice grounder from Anderson to end the inning.

The Royals loaded the bases in the seventh as well but did not score.

TRAINER'S ROOM

White Sox: INF Matt Davidson remains out of the lineup with what Renteria called sore knees. "Maybe these next four days are just giving him that time to recover," Renteria said. ... 3B Yoan Moncada was out of the lineup. "He's a little sore in the hip," Renteria said. "Today and a natural day off tomorrow, maybe that will help him."

Royals: INF Hunter Dozier was scratched with a sore back. "It's nothing serious," Dozier said before the game. "It's just a little back tightness. It's kind of built up and I woke up this morning pretty sore. I could have played, probably, but they decided to give me one day. I'll be 100 percent tomorrow."

UP NEXT

White Sox: RHP James Shields (6-16, 4.58 ERA) goes in Baltimore on Friday.

Royals: RHP Heath Fillmyer (2-1, 4.75) will face Twins LHP Stephen Gonsalves (0-2, 11.68) on Thursday. It will be Fillmyer's second consecutive start against the Twins. He took a no-decision in a 10-6 loss in Minneapolis last Friday, allowing six runs on six hits in 2 1/3 innings.

          The Skinny on The Narrow Bank      Cache   Translate Page      

Dedicated readers may recall my having reported here several years ago the suit filed by Colorado’s Four Corner’s Credit Union against the Kansas City Fed — after the Fed refused it a Master Account on the grounds that it planned to cater to Colorado’s marijuana-related businesses. Until then the episode was almost unique, for the Fed had scarcely ever refused a Master Account to any properly licensed depository institution. Eventually the Fed and Four Corners reached a compromise, of sorts, with the Fed agreeing to grant the credit union an account so long as it promised not to do business with the very firms it was originally intended to serve!

Well, as The Wall Street Journal’s Michael Derby reported last week, the Fed once again finds itself being sued for failing to grant a Master Account to a duly chartered depository institution. Only the circumstances couldn’t be more different. The plaintiff this time, TNB USA Inc, is a Connecticut-chartered bank; and its intended clients, far from being small businesses that cater to herbalistas, include some of Wall Street’s most venerable establishments. Also, although TNB is suing the New York Fed for not granting it a Master Account, opposition to its request comes mainly, not from the New York Fed itself, but from the Federal Reserve System’s head honchos in Washington. Finally, those honchos are opposed to TNB’s plan, not because they worry that TNB’s clients might be breaking Federal laws, but because of unspecified “policy concerns.”

Just what are those concerns? The rest of this post explains. But I’ll drop a hint or two by observing that the whole affair (1) has nothing to do with either promoting or opposing safe banking and (2) has everything to do with (you guessed it) the Fed’s post-2008 “floor” system of monetary control and the interest it pays on bank reserves to support that system.

What’s In a Name?

To understand the Fed’s concerns, one has first to consider TNB’s business plan. Doing that in turn means demolishing a myth that has already taken root concerning that enterprise — one based entirely on it’s name.

You see, “TNB” stands for “The Narrow Bank.” And some commentators, including John Cochrane, initially took this to mean that TNB was supposed to be a narrow bank in the conventional sense of the term, meaning one that would cater to ordinary but risk-averse depositors — like your grandma — by investing their money entirely in perfectly safe assets, such as cash reserves or Treasury securities. For example, the Niskanen Center’s Daniel Takash says that, if TNB wins its suit,

it would offer many businesses (and potentially consumers) the option [to] save their money in a safer financial institution and increase interest-rate competition in the banking industry.

Fans of narrow banking see it as a superior alternative to the present practice of insuring bank deposits while allowing banks to use such deposits to fund risky investments.

The assumption that TNB has no other aim than that of being a safer alternative to already established banks naturally makes the Fed’s opposition to it seem irrational: “Fed Rejects Bank for Being Too Safe,” is the attention-getting (but equally question-begging) headline assigned to Matt Levine’s Bloomberg article about the lawsuit. It seems irrational, that is, unless one assumes that Fed officials place other interests above that of financial-system safety. “That the Fed, which is a banker’s bank, protects the profits of the big banks’ system against competition, would be the natural public-choice speculation,” Cochrane observes. Alternatively, he wonders whether his vision of a narrow banking system might not be

as attractive to the Fed as it should be. If deposits are handled by narrow banks, which don’t need asset risk regulation, and risky investment is handled by equity-financed banks, which don’t need asset risk regulation, a lot of regulators and “macro-prudential” policy makers, who want to use regulatory tools to control the economy, are going to be out of work.

Get Lost, Grandma!

No one who knows me will imagine that I’d go out of my way to defend the Fed against the charge that it doesn’t always have the general public’s best interests in mind. Yet I’m compelled to say that explanations like Cochrane’s for the Fed’s treatment of TNB, let alone ones that suppose that the Fed has it in for safety-minded bankers, miss their mark. Such explanations badly misconstrue TNB’s business plan, especially by failing to grasp the significance of the declaration, included in its complaint against the New York Fed, that its “sole business will be to accept deposits only from the most financially secure institutions” (my emphasis).

You see, despite what Cochrane and Levine and some others have suggested, TNB was never meant to be a bank for me, thee, or the fellow behind the tree. Nor would it cater to any of our grandmothers. And why would it bother to? After all, unless grandma keeps over $250,000 in her checking account, her ordinary bank deposit is already safer than a mouse in a malt-heap. There’s no need, therefore, for any Fed conspiracy to keep a safe bank aimed at ordinary depositors from getting off the ground.

Instead TNB is exclusively meant to serve non-bank financial institutions, and money market mutual funds (MMMF) especially. Its purpose is to allow such institutions, which are not able to directly take advantage of the Fed’s policy of paying interest on excess reserves (IOER), to do so indirectly. In other words, TNB is meant to serve as a “back door” by which non-banks may gain access to the Fed’s IOER payments, with their TNB deposits serving as surrogate Fed balances, thereby allowing non-banks to realize higher returns, with less risk, than they might realize by investing directly in Treasury securities. J.P. Koning gets this (and much else) right in his own post about TNB, published while yours truly was readying this one for press:

TNB is a designed as a pure warehousing bank. It does not make loans to businesses or write mortgages. All it is designed to do is accept funds from depositors and pass these funds directly through to the Fed by redepositing them in its Fed master account. The Fed pays interest on these funds, which flow through TNB back to the original depositors, less a fee for TNB. Interestingly, TNB hasn’t bothered to get insurance from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). The premiums it would have to pay would add extra costs to its lean business model. Any depositor who understands TNB’s model wouldn’t care much anyways if the deposits are uninsured, since a deposit at the Fed is perfectly safe.

Once one realizes what TNB is about, explaining the Fed’s reluctance to grant it a Master Account becomes as easy as winking. The explanation, in a phrase, is that, were it to gain a charter, TNB could cause the Fed’s present operating system, or a substantial part of it, to unravel. Having gone to great lengths to get that system up and running, the Fed doesn’t want to see that happen. Since the present operating system is chiefly the brainchild of the Federal Reserve Board, it’s no puzzle that the Board is leading the effort to deny TNB its license.

How would TNB’s presence matter? The Fed has been paying interest on banks’ reserve balances, including their excess reserves, since October 2008. Ever since then, IOER rates have exceeded yields on many shorter-term Treasury securities — while being free from the interest-rate risk associated with holdings of longer-term securities. But banks alone (that is, “depository institutions”) are eligible for IOER. Other financial firms, including MMMFs, have had to settle for whatever they could earn on their own security holdings or for the fixed offering rate on the Fed’s Overnight Reverse Repurchase (ON-RRP) facility, which is presently 20 basis points lower than the IOER rate.

Naturally, any self-respecting MMMF would relish the opportunity to tap into the Fed’s IOER program. But how can any of them do so? Not being depository institutions, they can’t earn it directly. Nor will placing funds in an established bank work, since such a bank will only “pass through” a modest share of its IOER earnings keeping some — and probably well over 20 basis points — to cover its expenses and profits. But a bank specifically designed to cater to the MMMFs needs — now that’s a horse of a different color.

What would happen, then, if TNB, and perhaps some other firms like it, had their way? That would be the end, first of all, of the Fed’s ON-RRP facility and, therefore, of the lower limit of the Fed’s interest rate target range that that facility is designed to maintain.

Second, the Fed would face a massive increase in the real demand for excess reserve balances that would complicate both its monetary control efforts and its plan to shrink its balance sheet.

TANSTAAFL

OK, so the Fed may not like what TNB is up to. But why should the rest of us mind it? So what if the Fed’s leaky “floor-type” operating system lacks a “subfloor” to limit the extent to which the effective fed funds rate can wander below the IOER rate? Why not have the Fed pay IOER to the money funds, and to the GSEs while it’s at it, and have a leak-free floor instead? Besides, many of us have money in money funds, so that we stand to earn a little more from those funds once they can help themselves to the Fed’s interest payments. What’s not to like about that?

Plenty, actually. Consider, first of all, what the change means. The Fed would find itself playing surrogate to a large chunk of the money market fund industry: instead of investing their clients’ funds in some portfolio of Treasury securities, money market funds would leave the investing to the Fed, for a return — the IOER rate — which, instead of depending directly upon the yield on the Fed’s own asset portfolio, is chosen by Fed bureaucrats.

Now ask yourself: Just how is it that the Fed’s IOER payments could allow MMMFs to earn more than they might by investing money directly into securities themselves? Because the Fed has less overhead? Don’t make me laugh. Because Fed bureaucrats are more astute investors? I told you not to make me laugh! No, sir: it’s because the Fed can fob-off risk — like the duration risk it assumed by investing in so many longer-term securities — on third parties, meaning taxpayers, who bear it in the form of reduced Fed remittances to the Treasury. That means in turn that any gain the MMMFs would realize by having a bank that’s basically nothing but a shell operation designed to let them bank with the Fed would really amount to an implicit taxpayer subsidy. There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch.

As it stands, of course, ordinary banks are already taking advantage of that same subsidy. But two wrongs don’t make a right. Or so my grandmother told me.

          O ‘milagre’ que salvou garoto que teve cabeça atravessada por espeto de churrasco ao cair de árvore      Cache   Translate Page      

Criança de 10 anos caiu de cara no objeto pontiagudo após ser atacado por vespas nos EUA e, segundo os médicos, consiguirá se recuperar quase completamente. Milagrosamente, segundo os médicos, o objeto atravessou a cabeça sem atingir os principais vasos sanguíneos, os olhos e o cérebro HO/ Medical News Network/ AFP Um menino de 10 anos de idade, no estado do Missouri, nos Estados Unidos, está em recuperação no hospital após ter sido atacado por vespas e cair de uma casa na árvore de cara em um espeto de churrasco. A ponta fina do objeto atravessou sua cabeça, mas, segundo a equipe médica, "milagrosamente" não atingiu seus olhos, cérebro, medula espinhal e principais vasos sanguíneos. O acidente foi registrado no sábado. O Hospital da Universidade do Kansas informou à imprensa local que Xavier Cunningham, como foi identificada a criança, deve se recuperar totalmente, com exceção de sua voz, que pode ter sido afetada. Como foi o acidente? Xavier estava brincando em uma casa na árvore em sua casa em Harrisonville, Missouri, quando uma vespa chamada nos EUA de yellow jacket - nome dado aos insetos dos gêneros Vespula e Dolichovespula, cujas picadas chegam a ser descritas como dolorosas queimaduras de cigarro - começaram a atacá-lo. Ele caiu da casa da árvore diretamente sobre o espeto de churrasco de metal com cerca de 30 centímetros de comprimento. Xavier Cunningham está se recuperando no hospital após passar por cirurgia para remoção do objeto que atravessou sua cabeça Shannon Miller/ Family Photo/ AFP O espeto atravessou sua cabeça, penetrando cerca de quinze centímetros em seu crânio. A mãe dele, Gabrielle Miller, disse ao jornal local Kansas City Star que o viu entrar em casa gritando, com a vara de metal "saindo" da cabeça. "Eu estou morrendo, mamãe. Posso sentir que estou morrendo", ela se recorda de tê-lo ouvido dizer a caminho do hospital. Depois de passar pelo hospital local, Xavier transferido para uma unidade em Kansas City, a cidade mais populosa do Missouri, e finalmente enviado para o hospital da Universidade do Kansas, onde finalmente foi submetido a uma cirurgia. Os médicos removeram com sucesso o objeto - o que demandou uma delicada e demorada cirurgia, devido às extremidades afiadas do objeto. O ferimento não chegou a causar hemorragia e poupou olhos, tronco cerebral, medula espinhal e vasos sanguíneos - o que afastou riscos maiores e permitiu que os médicos chamassem cirurgiões especialistas antes de tentarem a remoção na manhã seguinte ao acidente. Xavier brincava em uma casa na árvore quando foi picado por vespas e acabou caindo Shannon Miller/ Family Photo/ AFP Koji Ebersole, diretor de neurocirurgias endovasculares do Hospital da Universidade do Kansas, ressaltou, em entrevista ao Star, a sorte que foi ter um objeto atravessar 12 ou 15 centímetros cabeça adentro sem atingir importantes áreas do corpo. Ele ressaltou que a maior preocupação durante o procedimento de remoção eram os vasos sanguíneos no pescoço do menino e chamou a recuperação dele de "milagrosa". "Eu ainda não tinha visto nada alcançar essa profundidade em uma situação com condição de sobrevivência da vítima, quanto mais um caso em que achamos que a recuperação será quase completa, se não for completa", disse ele ao Star.

Xavier Cunningham, age 10 of Kansas City, Kansas, was climbing up to a tree house when yellow jackets attacked. Cunningham fell several feet from the ladder and impaled his head on a meat skewer. University of Kansas surgeons removed the skewer during a several hour operation. Cunningham is doing quite well and expected to be released in a few days. From Fox4KC:

"He was more upset about the yellow jackets than he was about the metal piece sticking out of his face," (Cunnigham's dad Shannon) Miller said.

"It missed his brain. It missed his brain stem. It missed the nerves, everything that`s valuable in your head. It missed everything," Xavier's dad said...

【9月13日 AFP】札幌市が2026年の冬季五輪の招致を断念し、鉄道網が改良される30年大会開催を目指すことが13日、明らかになった。


 札幌市側が、スイス・ローザンヌ(Lausanne)で国際オリンピック委員会(IOC)のトーマス・バッハ(Thomas Bach)会長を訪ね、26年大会の立候補を辞退について「すぐに」伝える見込みとの報道を受け、札幌市職員はAFPの取材に対し、日本オリンピック委員会(JOC)や地元当局、ビジネスリーダーの大多数が「30年大会の招致に切り替えることが望ましい」と考えているとコメントした。


 札幌市の町田隆敏(Takatoshi Machida)副市長とJOCの竹田恒和(Tsunekazu Takeda)会長がバッハ氏と会談する予定で、先日札幌市近郊で発生し、41人の死者を出した巨大地震についても議論するという。


 男性職員は、立候補を30年大会に切り替える可能性について「話し合うかは分からない」としつつ、30年までに新幹線が札幌市まで延伸され、より優れた鉄道網が完成するということも付け加えた。


 五輪の開催地はしばらくアジアの都市で独占されており、26年の冬季大会はアジア以外で行われるかもしれないという意見は確かにあった。今年の冬季五輪は韓国の平昌(Pyeongchang)で行われ、20年夏季五輪は東京で、そして22年冬季五輪は中国・北京で行われる。


 26年大会の開催には、カナダのカルガリー(Calgary)やスウェーデンのストックホルムなどが名乗りを上げている。同大会の開催地は、来年9月にイタリア・ミラノ(Milan)で発表される。


 また、30年大会には米国のデンバー(Denver)とソルトレークシティー(Salt Lake City)が開催に興味の声を上げている。(c)AFP

【9月13日 CNS】中国では10月の大型連休、国慶節を控え、多くの観光施設が入場料の値下げを発表している。その中には知名度の高い施設も含まれ、無料にしたところもある。入場料を値下げしたら、その観光施設はどうやって稼ぐのだろうか。


 国家発展改革委員会によると、8月末時点で21省が157観光施設の値下げもしくは無料化を発表した。今後、国慶節までにさらに157施設が加わる予定。


  観光施設の入場料の高さは、これまで観光経済成長の足かせとされてきた。中国政府も、広域観光の促進に向け、国有観光施設の入場料の値下げを求めていた。

 中国観光研究院産業所の呉麗雲副研究員は、「高すぎる入場料は、観光客の選択の権利を奪っている。観光施設の公共性も発揮できない。入場料の値下げでより多くの観光客が恩恵を受けるだろう」と話した。


 しかし、入場料で遺跡などの修復や施設の管理を行っている観光施設からすれば、値下げは経営上の大きな圧力となる。


 呉副研究員は「観光施設は入場料でなく、消費者により多様なレジャーやサービス、商品を提供することが求められる」と述べた。


 故宮博物院(The Palace Museum)は、芸術関連商品の売り上げが2017年に10億元(約160億円)に達し、年間の入場料収入にほぼ並んでおり、他施設でも同様の取り組みが求められそうだ。(c)CNS/JCM/AFPBB News

          If this is the end for Joe Mauer, his retirement will be similar to other Twins greats      Cache   Translate Page      
The end of a career comes for every athlete at some point, and Joe Mauer is reportedly giving great consideration to whether that time is coming in a few weeks for him. Per La Velle E. Neal’s reporting, Mauer is mulling retirement. The most telling quote from the piece, at least to me, was when Neal reminded Mauer that six months ago it sounded like he was pretty sure about playing in 2019 and beyond. “Yeah, a lot can change in six months. Personally, professionally, physically,” Mauer said. Personally, the Mauers have a third child due in a couple months. Professionally, Mauer has reverted to 2014-16 form after a stronger (though not vintage) 2017 season. Physically, he’s dealt with another concussion this season that caused him to miss time. He had a .775 OPS at the time he dove for a ball in Anaheim on May 11, a play that led to a cervical strain, concussion and month-long stint on the DL. Since then, Mauer has a .695 OPS. If this does end up being it for Mauer, whose eight-year, $184 million contract expires after this season, his career arc will end up looking quite a bit like that of several other all-time Twins greats. Let’s take a look at five others, how their careers finished and how they might offer examples for what Mauer should or shouldn’t do: *Harmon Killebrew: Killer had his last great season at age 35 (28 homers, AL-best 119 RBI), was productive again at age 36 and then hit a sharp decline at age 37. He hung on until age 39, playing his final year with the Kansas City Royals in 1975. Mauer hardly seems like the type who would want to play for another team. And while he’s not at the top of his game right now he also might not want to decline further, as Killebrew did (hitting .199 his final year). *Tony Oliva: His eight years between 1964-71 are Hall of Fame-worthy, but knee problems — exacerbated in 1971 — put Tony O. on a declining path starting at age 33 in 1972. He held on until age 37, which might have been a year or two too long considering he hit just .211 with a.495 OPS that last year. Mauer’s career arc is very similar, even if their career-defining injuries were different. *Kirby Puckett: One of the biggest and saddest what-ifs in Twins history is the story of Puckett, who absolutely mashed at age 35 in 1995 and then never played again because of the loss of vision in one eye. If Mauer was still producing like Puckett was at his age 35 season (Kirby hit .314 with an .894 OPS), I imagine he would still be itching to play. *Kent Hrbek: Nagging injuries limited Hrbek to an average of 105 games his final three seasons, and while his production didn’t decline sharply he was on the downswing (.789 OPS his final three years, compared to .862 the previous 10) when he retired at age 34 in 1994 in the midst of MLB’s labor dispute. Hrbek has parallels to Mauer in being a native Minnesotan who played his entire career with the Twins. *Justin Morneau: Unfortunately this might be the most apt comparison of all. Morneau was having an MVP-caliber season in 2010 — hitting .345 with a 1.055 OPS — when a concussion sliding into second base altered his trajectory. He was 29 at the time of the injury, and while he later rebounded to win a batting title at age 33 with Colorado — much like Mauer’s rebound season last year — Morneau eventually retired at age 35. Mauer was 30 and still highly productive when a foul tip on Aug. 19, 2013 produced the concussion that changed his career forever. Will he retire at age 35 like his friend and former teammate?

Browns GM John Dorsey never expected to end up in Cleveland.

          Le’Veon Bell absent for start of another practice week      Cache   Translate Page      
Le’Veon Bell has yet to come out and say when he plans to return to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but all signs point to him missing the team’s Week 2 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.After the typical two days off following their Sunday game, Steelers players reported to work on Wednesday for team meetings. Once again, Bell was not among them. With the deadline having passed for Bell and the Steelers to negotiate a long-term deal, the only real motivation Bell could have for skipping games is to limit his injury exposure in advance of free agency. If that’s his plan, he technically doesn’t need to show up until Week 10 to avoid having his contract toll.James Conner rushed for 135 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday and caught fives passes for 57 yards. While he’s nowhere near as good of an athlete as Bell, more performances like that will help validate the Steelers’ decision to not pay Bell. Plus, you have to wonder if Bell’s teammates even want him back given some of the things they have said about him lately.

Xavier Cunningham, age 10 of Kansas City, Kansas, was climbing up to a tree house when yellow jackets attacked. Cunningham fell several feet from the ladder and impaled his head on a meat skewer. University of Kansas surgeons removed the skewer during a several hour operation. Cunningham is doing quite well and expected to be released in a few days. From Fox4KC:

"He was more upset about the yellow jackets than he was about the metal piece sticking out of his face," (Cunnigham's dad Shannon) Miller said.

"It missed his brain. It missed his brain stem. It missed the nerves, everything that`s valuable in your head. It missed everything," Xavier's dad said...

"Only God could have directed things to happen in a way that would save him like this," he said. "It really was a miracle."

          If this is the end for Joe Mauer, his retirement will be similar to other Twins greats      Cache   Translate Page      
The end of a career comes for every athlete at some point, and Joe Mauer is reportedly giving great consideration to whether that time is coming in a few weeks for him. Per La Velle E. Neal’s reporting, Mauer is mulling retirement. The most telling quote from the piece, at least to me, was when Neal reminded Mauer that six months ago it sounded like he was pretty sure about playing in 2019 and beyond. “Yeah, a lot can change in six months. Personally, professionally, physically,” Mauer said. Personally, the Mauers have a third child due in a couple months. Professionally, Mauer has reverted to 2014-16 form after a stronger (though not vintage) 2017 season. Physically, he’s dealt with another concussion this season that caused him to miss time. He had a .775 OPS at the time he dove for a ball in Anaheim on May 11, a play that led to a cervical strain, concussion and month-long stint on the DL. Since then, Mauer has a .695 OPS. If this does end up being it for Mauer, whose eight-year, $184 million contract expires after this season, his career arc will end up looking quite a bit like that of several other all-time Twins greats. Let’s take a look at five others, how their careers finished and how they might offer examples for what Mauer should or shouldn’t do: *Harmon Killebrew: Killer had his last great season at age 35 (28 homers, AL-best 119 RBI), was productive again at age 36 and then hit a sharp decline at age 37. He hung on until age 39, playing his final year with the Kansas City Royals in 1975. Mauer hardly seems like the type who would want to play for another team. And while he’s not at the top of his game right now he also might not want to decline further, as Killebrew did (hitting .199 his final year). *Tony Oliva: His eight years between 1964-71 are Hall of Fame-worthy, but knee problems — exacerbated in 1971 — put Tony O. on a declining path starting at age 33 in 1972. He held on until age 37, which might have been a year or two too long considering he hit just .211 with a.495 OPS that last year. Mauer’s career arc is very similar, even if their career-defining injuries were different. *Kirby Puckett: One of the biggest and saddest what-ifs in Twins history is the story of Puckett, who absolutely mashed at age 35 in 1995 and then never played again because of the loss of vision in one eye. If Mauer was still producing like Puckett was at his age 35 season (Kirby hit .314 with an .894 OPS), I imagine he would still be itching to play. *Kent Hrbek: Nagging injuries limited Hrbek to an average of 105 games his final three seasons, and while his production didn’t decline sharply he was on the downswing (.789 OPS his final three years, compared to .862 the previous 10) when he retired at age 34 in 1994 in the midst of MLB’s labor dispute. Hrbek has parallels to Mauer in being a native Minnesotan who played his entire career with the Twins. *Justin Morneau: Unfortunately this might be the most apt comparison of all. Morneau was having an MVP-caliber season in 2010 — hitting .345 with a 1.055 OPS — when a concussion sliding into second base altered his trajectory. He was 29 at the time of the injury, and while he later rebounded to win a batting title at age 33 with Colorado — much like Mauer’s rebound season last year — Morneau eventually retired at age 35.

          "Miraculous": Boy survives after meat skewer pierces skull      Cache   Translate Page      

HARRISONVILLE, Mo. — A 10-year-old Missouri boy is recovering after he was attacked by insects and tumbled from a tree, landing on a meat skewer that penetrated his skull from his face to the back of his head.

But miraculously, that's where Xavier Cunningham's bad luck ended. The skewer had completely missed Xavier's eye, brain, spinal cord and major blood vessels, The Kansas City Star reports .

Xavier's harrowing experience began Saturday afternoon when yellow jackets attacked him in a tree house at his home in Harrisonville, about 35 miles (56 kilometers) south of Kansas City. He fell to the ground and started to scream. His mother, Gabrielle Miller, ran to help him. His skull was pierced from front-to-back with half a foot of skewer still sticking out of his face.

Miller tried to reassure her son, who told her "I'm dying, Mom" as they rushed to the hospital. He eventually was transferred to the University of Kansas Hospital, where endovascular neurosurgery director Koji Ebersole evaluated the wound.

"You couldn't draw it up any better," Ebersole said. "It was one in a million for it to pass 5 or 6 inches through the front of the face to the back and not have hit these things."

There was no active bleeding, allowing the hospital time to get personnel in place for a removal surgery on Sunday morning that was complicated by the fact that the skewer wasn't round. Because it was square, with sharp edges, it would have to come out perfectly straight. Twisting it could cause additional severe injury.

"Miraculous" would be an appropriate word to describe what happened, Ebersole said.

Doctors think Xavier could recover completely.

"I have not seen anything passed to that depth in a situation that was survivable, let alone one where we think the recovery will be near complete if not complete," he said.

          One potential breakout fantasy football player for all 16 games this week      Cache   Translate Page      

sterling shepardRick Scuteri/AP

Week 2 of the NFL kicks off on Thursday night with the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals, and that means fantasy football owners everywhere will be scrambling to get their lineups in order.

We went through all 16 games slated for Week 2 and picked out players we think could have big weeks, based on matchups, usage, and opportunity.

While some choices may be obvious based on a player's status or when they were picked, others are deeper sleepers who could have big weeks.

Take a look at potential breakout fantasy football players for each game this week:

*Note: Consensus rankings are the combined average of ESPN, Yahoo, and FantasyPro's player rankings

1. Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals — Michael Crabtree, WR, Ravens

Nick Wass/AP

Week 1 stats: 6 targets, 3 catches, 38 yards, 1 TD

Consensus ranking: 30.6 among WRs

Why he could break out: Crabtree was tied with three other Baltimore receivers for most targets from Joe Flacco. But in beating the Bills 47-3, the game script did not call for much passing, and Crabtree sat in the second half. He may get more defensive attention from the Bengals this week, but his opportunity to be the Ravens' No. 1 receiver could be much bigger, too.



2. Kansas City Chiefs at Pittsburgh Steelers — Kareem Hunt, RB, Chiefs

Jason Hanna/Getty

Week 1 stats: 16 carries, 49 yards, 0 TDs

Consensus ranking: 7.3 among RBs

Why he could break out: Hunt, a common first-round pick, was a letdown in his first game. However, the Chiefs kept making big plays via the pass or on special teams, minimizing the amount Hunt was needed. It was also the first time in his career that he was held without a catch. He should fare better against a Steelers defense that has struggled against the run.



3. Miami Dolphins at New York Jets — Bilal Powell, RB, Jets

Jeff Haynes/AP

Week 1 stats: 12 carries, 1 catch, 65 total yards, 0 TDs

Consensus ranking: 33.6 among RBs

Why he could break out: Isaiah Crowell was the star running back for the Jets in Week 1, but it could have gone the other way. Crowell's numbers were inflated by a 62-yard touchdown run. Without it, he would have had 9 carries for 40 yards. Meanwhile, Powell averaged 5 yards per carry, and this Dolphins team just gave up 110 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown to Dion Lewis in Week 1. Crowell got the red-zone carries for the Jets in Week 1, but Powell has a good opportunity to take the lead this week.

          Brad Pitt's post-Katrina housing project is said to be rotting and collapsing — and the potential health effects are inciting a major lawsuit      Cache   Translate Page      

Brad Pitt Make It Right

  • Brad Pitt's post-Katrina housing project could face legal trouble amid complaints that its units are rotting, collapsing, and caving in.
  • The celebrity's Make It Right Foundation was created in 2007 in New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward, one of the areas hit hardest by Hurricane Katrina.
  • The foundation has allegedly failed to address residents' concerns about structural, electrical, and plumbing issues. 

As Hurricane Florence  makes it way toward the Carolinas, coastal communities are scrambling to gather their belongings and evacuate to shelters amid heavy traffic, lane closures, and oceans overflowing onto low-lying roads. 

It's a scenario that residents of New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward know all too well. In 2005, their community experienced the gravest effects of Hurricane Katrina, a Category 5 hurricane that devastated the Gulf Coast. In addition to its many casualties, the hurricane damaged or destroyed around 800,000 residences, leaving many homeless.

The disaster inspired actor Brad Pitt to create Make It Right, a non-profit foundation dedicated to rebuilding homes in the area. Within months of its founding in 2007, the organization had completed its first round of six homes, with construction costs estimated at $150,000 per home. More than a decade later, Make It Right has built more than 100 homes in New Orleans, and expanded to New Jersey, Kansas City, and an Indian reservation in Montana.

Now, attorney Ron Austin is filing a class-action lawsuit against the foundation over a host of structural, electrical, and plumbing problems, which may be causing residents to become ill. Austin claims that Make It Right not only failed to deliver on its promise to fix the homes, but also failed to alert residents upon learning of issues with the design and materials. 

Make It Right Homes

"This has been years of ongoing lies and broken promises," said Kamaria Allen, a former Make It Right resident, in an interview with NBC News. In 2013, Allen received a cash settlement from the foundation in exchange for signing a non-disclosure agreement. (She has since broken the agreement by speaking to NBC.)

Her comments echo those of many residents, who say that Make It Right has been unresponsive to their complaints. NBC claims that the organization has not filed a tax form or built a home in years. 

The foundation has long touted its homes as "meet[ing] the highest standards in green building." Each unit is LEED Platinum-certified and features solar panels, non-toxic paint, and energy-saving appliances. Pitt even brought in world-renowned architects like Frank Gehry and David Adjaye to weigh in on the design. 

But in recent years, this once-sterling reputation has been sullied by complaints from residents about caving roofs, collapsed walls, and rotting wood. In 2014, reports surfaced that more than two dozen homes showed signs of rot, despite the fact that the wood was guaranteed to have a 40-year lifespan. Residents have since experienced gas leaks, electrical fires, and even mushrooms growing out of the walls — most likely the result of chronic rain and humidity.

In the wake of the recent lawsuit, Pitt has stayed silent, other than to release a statement via a spokesperson: "I made a promise to the folks of the Lower Ninth to help them rebuild," he said. "It is a promise I intend to keep."
