Following a successful Minneapolis artists visit in Rehovot, this program has been defined as another way to engage a different part of both communities and within the adult age range. Artists in Minneapolis and Rehovot were paired and spent the year having two kinds of study sessions. 1:1 personal study sessions: each pair was given text to learn and discuss on their own (via Skype, email, etc). Four group study sessions in each city took place to discuss what each artist discussed with his/her counterpart in the partnered city.

          Cardinal Wuerl to ask pope to accept his resignation      Cache   Translate Page      

Washington D.C., Sep 12, 2018 / 04:50 pm (CNA).- An archdiocesan spokesman has confirmed that Cardinal Donald Wuerl will soon ask Pope Francis to accept his resignation as the Archbishop of Washington, D.C.

In a Sept. 11 letter to priests, Wuerl said that he would soon meet with the pope to discuss his future, but did not state at the time that he would ask the pope to allow him to resign.

The text of that letter has been posted on the website of the archdiocesan magazine.

A spokesman for Wuerl confirmed to CNA Sept. 12 that, at their next meeting, the cardinal intends to formally ask Pope Francis to allow him to step down. 

“Cardinal Wuerl understands that healing from the abuse crisis requires a new beginning and this includes new leadership for the Archdiocese of Washington,” the spokesman said.

As required by canon law, Wuerl originally submitted his resignation on Nov. 12, 2015, after turning 75 years old.

After Wuerl made a trip to Rome in late August, media reports said that Pope Francis had instructed the cardinal to return to Washington and consult with his clergy about the best way forward for him and the archdiocese.

In a meeting with priests held Labor Day, Wuerl said he would be taking time to pray and reflect on how best to proceed.

The cardinal has been the subject of considerable criticism in recent months. As the successor to Archbishop Theodore McCarrick, Wuerl has faced questions about his knowledge of sexual abuse allegations made against McCarrick, which were first reported to the public June 20.

Following the release of a Pennsylvania grand jury report at the end of July, Wuerl’s record as Bishop of Pittsburgh, where he served from 1988 until 2006, came under close scrutiny. Some cases in the report raised concerns that Wuerl had allowed priests accused of abuse to remain in ministry after allegations had been made.

Although he has faced calls to step down and several recent demonstrations outside his residence, it has been widely believed that Wuerl hoped to remain in his position at least until the general session of the U.S. bishops’ conference in November. That session is expected to focus on the fallout of the recent sexual abuse crises, and Wuerl was said to want to play and active part in helping the Church respond.

Speculation will now turn to the candidates to succeed him in Washington. The Archdiocese of Washington is a highly visible and sensitive post, requiring political and ecclesial acumen. In the wake of the McCarrick scandals, Wuerl’s successor will be expected to lead reform initiatives and restore trust in archdiocesan leadership.

Sources in Rome have told CNA that on his recent visit, Cardinal Wuerl presented several suggestions for his eventual replacement in Washington. While the list remains confidential, several curial sources told CNA that one bishop named was Archbishop Bernard Hebda, the Archbishop of St. Paul-Minneapolis.

Hebda arrived in Minneapolis as an emergency apostolic administrator in 2015 following the resignation of Archbishop Nienstedt, who was himself accused of sexual misconduct. At the same time, Hebda served as the coadjutor Archbishop of Newark and had been slated to succeed Archbishop John Myers.

While in Newark, Hedba gained a reputation as a reformer with a close interest in archdiocesan affairs, conducting unannounced visits to priests and parishes, and choosing to live on the campus of Seton Hall University where the archdiocesan seminary is housed.

Following his arrival in Minneapolis, Hebda brought the archdiocese through a protracted bankruptcy process, following multiple suits brought against it for cases of sexual abuse.

The Archdiocese of Washington told CNA that no firm date had been agreed for Cardinal Wuerl to meet with Pope Francis, adding that the meeting would take place as soon as is convenient for the pope.


          What do Church abuse policies mean by 'vulnerable adult'?      Cache   Translate Page      

Denver, Colo., Sep 12, 2018 / 01:00 pm (CNA).- A Vatican summit on abuse prevention next February will gather the presidents of bishops’ conferences from around the world. While a Sept. 12 statement from the Vatican said the gathering’s theme would be the “protection of minors,” a Vatican spokesperson clarified that the meeting would discuss “prevention of abuse of minors and vulnerable adults.”

Wednesday’s announcement of the meeting has raised questions about who the Church considers to be a “vulnerable adult.”

The USCCB’s “Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People,” does not use the term “vulnerable adult.” Nor do the “Essential Norms for Diocesan/Eparchial Policies Dealing with Allegations of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Priests or Deacons,” which is the document that sets Church policy for addressing sex abuse allegations in the United States.

Several dioceses, do, however, define the term in their own sexual abuse policies.

Policies of the Archdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis say that: “‘Vulnerable Adult’ means persons with physical, mental or emotional conditions that render them unable to defend or protect themselves, or get help when at risk of harm.”

In the Archdiocese of Louisville, “an adult 18 years or older is considered vulnerable when, because of impairment of mental or physical functions, that person is unable or unlikely to report abuse or neglect without assistance.”

The Archdiocese of Miami defines a “vulnerable person” as “a minor under 18 years of age or a person whose ability to perform normal activities of daily living is impaired due to a mental, emotional, long-term physical or developmental disability or dysfunction, or brain damage, or the infirmities of aging.”

The Archdiocese of Washington’s policies for child protection say that “a vulnerable individual over the age of seventeen (17) is also covered by this policy…when such a person is unable or unlikely to report abuse without assistance because of impairment of physical or mental function or emotional status.”

Edward Mechmann, director of the Safe Environment Program in the Archdiocese of New York, told CNA that the archdiocese considers a vulnerable person to be “a person of any age who lacks the capacity to give consent due to a mental or developmental condition or disability.”

The Code of Canon Law does not use or define the term “vulnerable adult.” However, the Church’s 2010 “Norms on delicta graviora” say that “a person who habitually lacks the use of reason is to be considered equivalent to a minor” with regard to allegations of clerical sexual abuse.  

The February summit was announced in the wake of clerical sexual misconduct allegations across the Church involving minors, as well as allegations of misconduct that targeted seminarians, priests, and other adults.

On Aug. 14, a Pennsylvania grand jury released a report documenting 70 years of sexual abuse allegations in six dioceses in that state. On Sept. 12, a report from the German bishops’ conference documented allegations of clerical sexual abuse during a similar time period.

On June 20, the Archdiocese of New York announced that it had deemed credible an allegation that Archbishop Theodore McCarrick had serially sexually abused a teenage boy in the 1970s. Subsequent reports, however, allege that McCarrick had serially sexually coerced and assaulted seminarians and young priests during decades of his episcopal ministry in New Jersey and Washington, D.C.

Mechmann told CNA that the term “vulnerable adult” as his archdiocese defines it, “would not include seminarians. It is really aimed at protecting people who have developmental disabilities or cognitive disabilities for instance someone who is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.”

“A sound diocesan policy however would also encompass any kind of non-consensual sexual conduct, even if it is not strictly covered by the Charter,” Mechmann added.

The Archdiocese of New York’s “Policy on Sexual Misconduct” includes in its definition of sexual misconduct “any sexual act with another person without consent,” as well as “any sexual conduct that is a violation of civil law.”
 
Deacon Bernie Nojadera, executive director of the USCCB’s office for child and youth protection, told CNA that several U.S. dioceses use the definition of “vulnerable adult” provided by civil law.

That definition often refers to a “dependent adult,” he said.

Nojadera noted that “there is nothing in [the Charter] that talks about differential of power. So if you’re looking at differential of power, that’s not addressed in the Charter.”

“That’s where applicability of state law comes in, with regard to the differential of power. A lot of dioceses are looking at their state laws and trying to apply them accordingly,” he said.

With regard to allegations of abuse involving seminarians and other adults, he said he thinks “it would be wise for those types of situations to also be brought forward” at the February meeting of bishops.

“I would hope that there would be a seat at the table for seminarians and for that issue to be addressed,” he told CNA.

In addition to the abuse of minors, vulnerable adults, seminarians, and other adults, Nojadera noted other situations that could, in his view, be addressed, mentioning the difficulties faced by the children of priests, the use of corporal punishment in the Church, and situations involving religious orders.

He also mentioned the importance of consulting with victims of clerical sexual abuse.

“I would hope that survivor victims were invited to this table as well, to be able to address [the meeting],” he said.

Nojadera said that his office often looks for insights from victims of clerical sexual abuse, calling their perspective “invaluable.”

“There’s an awareness that those who have not been abused do not have.”

He also encouraged broader lay involvement in discussions about sexual misconduct in the Church. “The lay faithful have been offering to help and contribute to the solution to this,” he said.

Nojadera said he hopes the February summit will take an expansive view of abuse-related problems in the Church.

“I think we have an opportunity here to just talk about abuse in general. Period.”

“Hopefully,” he said, “they’ll have an opportunity to see the big picture.”

Mechmann told CNA that the term “vulnerable adult” as his archdiocese defines it, “would not include seminarians. It is really aimed at protecting people who have developmental disabilities or cognitive disabilities, for instance someone who is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.”

“A sound diocesan policy, however, would also encompass any kind of non-consensual sexual conduct, even if it is not strictly covered by the Charter,” Mechmann added.

The Archdiocese of New York’s “Policy on Sexual Misconduct” includes in its definition of sexual misconduct “any sexual act with another person without consent,” as well as “any sexual conduct that is a violation of civil law.”
 
Deacon Bernie Nojadera, executive director of the USCCB’s office for child and youth protection, told CNA that several U.S. dioceses use the definition of “vulnerable adult” provided by civil law.

That definition often refers to a “dependent adult,” he said.

Nojadera noted that “there is nothing in [the Charter] that talks about differential of power. So if you’re looking at differential of power, that’s not addressed in the Charter.”

“That’s where applicability of state law comes in, with regard to the differential of power. A lot of dioceses are looking at their state laws and trying to apply them accordingly,” he said.

With regard to allegations of abuse involving seminarians and other adults, he said he thinks “it would be wise for those types of situations to also be brought forward” at the February meeting of bishops.

“I would hope that there would be a seat at the table for seminarians and for that issue to be addressed,” he told CNA.

In addition to the abuse of minors, vulnerable adults, seminarians, and other adults, Nojadera noted other situations that could, in his view, be addressed, mentioning the difficulties faced by the children of priests, the use of corporal punishment in the Church, and situations involving religious orders.

He also mentioned the importance of consulting with victims of clerical sexual abuse.

“I would hope that survivor victims were invited to this table as well, to be able to address [the meeting],” he said.

Nojadera said that his office often looks for insights from victims of clerical sexual abuse, calling their perspective “invaluable.”

“There’s an awareness that those who have not been abused do not have.”

He also encouraged broader lay involvement in discussions about sexual misconduct in the Church. “The lay faithful have been offering to help and contribute to the solution to this,” he said.

Nojadera said he hopes the February summit will take an expansive view of abuse-related problems in the Church.

“I think we have an opportunity here to just talk about abuse in general. Period.”

“Hopefully,” he said, “they’ll have an opportunity to see the big picture.”

          NOEL - THE MUSICAL to Tour the US This Fall      Cache   Translate Page      

NOËL, the stunning new Holiday musical from top-selling children's author Eoin Colfer (Artemis Fowl) and preeminent Irish film composer Liam Bates is coming to North America! Having met with huge critical acclaim overseas, the show's producers are now planning its first North American national tour, which will open at the Ames Center in Minneapolis, MN on November 17th. NOËL is set to play 25 dates across the U.S., just in time for the Holiday season.

NOËL, set in modern day London, tells a heartwarming tale of a little girl (Noël), who is prepping for her starring role in a school Christmas play when her mother suddenly disappears. She keeps her mother's disappearance a secret and embarks alone on a quest to find her. Along the way, she befriends a diverse group of homeless characters that have lost their way in life, including Nick, who believes the world has forgotten the true meaning of Christmas. Noël's bright innocence and unwavering belief in finding her mother, inspires Nick to embrace life once more, finding love and hope in himself and in the world.

NOËL The Musical is a wonderful family show, filled with mayhem, magic and music! The show's creators are the extremely talented Eoin Colfer (book) and Liam Bates (music). Eoin is a NY Times bestselling author who has achieved international acclaim for his hugely successful series of children's books Artemis Fowl, which has sold over 25 million copies worldwide and is being adapted into a major motion picture by Disney. He has recently published a children's graphic novel, Illegal, with Andrew Donkin and illustrator Giovanni Rigano. Illegal is a powerfully moving graphic novel that explores the current plight of undocumented immigrants.

Liam Bates is an award winning Irish composer, orchestrator and conductor. A student at the Royal Academy of London, Liam received master classes from composer Leonard Bernstein. He has composed music and songs for movies such as Don Juan De Marco, Leap Year, Last Passenger and Earthbound.

NOËL is directed by award-winning director Sam Scalamoni (currently director for Elf the Musical National Tours). Mr. Scalamoni is joined on NOËL by an extremely accomplished creative team; Choreographer Charlie Sutton (Kinky Boots, American in Paris), Musical Director Gary Adler (Avenue Q); Set Designer Christine Peters (ELF, Miss Saigon); Sound Designer Joshua Reid (Billy Elliott), Lighting Designer Brian Nason (The Seafarer, It's A Wonderful Life) and Costume Designer Wendi R. Zea.

The cast album for NOËL was recorded at Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin and Dubway Studios in New York featuring Broadway and West End stars Jessica Vosk (Wicked, Fiddler on the Roof, Bridges of Madison County), James Byng (The Woman in Black) Stephen Carlile, currently playing Scar in Lion King on Broadway.

Executive producers VenuWorks Theatricals, led by VenuWorks founder and President Steve Peters and international singer and producer Michael Londra, first produced NOËL at Ireland's National Opera House in Wexford in 2016 to huge acclaim. They are excited to bring the show to US audiences for its first ever North American tour and plan to bring NOËL to even more cities across the US, Canada and Europe in the coming years.

          Sling TV Increases Digital-First Offering With 2 New Channels From Cinedigm      Cache   Translate Page      

Sling TV, DISH’s streaming TV service launched in 2015, is beefing up its offering of digital-first channels with two new additions from Cinedigm.

Starting today, Cinedigm’s Docurama, which houses a collection of fact-based documentaries, and its fandom-focused CONtv will be available to SlingTV subscribers as individual add-ons for $5 a month each.

The launch of the two channels is a continuation of the agreement between Cinedigm and Sling TV, which began with the launch of the popular values-based Dove Channel on June 28, marking the first time in Cinedigm’s history that one of its OTT networks was offered through Sling TV.

Cinedigm is excited to build upon our relationship with Sling TV with the addition of Docurama and CONtv,” said Bill Sondheim, president of Cinedigm‘s Entertainment Group, in a statement. “These channels both cater to distinct audiences who are passionate, knowledgeable and know exactly what they want to see. We look forward to continuing to provide the rapidly growing Sling TV community with our diverse entertainment programming.”

Launched as a VOD service in 2014, Docurama provides viewers with a vast library featuring over 100 films, shorts, and series, as well as interviews and in-depth film festival coverage. This month, Sling TV viewers with a Docurama subscription can view the Nick Cave film “20,000 Days On Earth,” the fan-to-frontman fairytale “Don’t Stop Believin': Everyman’s Journey,” and the in-depth Mafia series “Gangster Empire.”

With CONtv, a leading digital-first entertainment network devoted exclusively to fandom, viewers will have access to thousands of hours of content that encompasses sci-fi, horror, fantasy, anime, grindhouse, and martial arts action. CONtv’s offerings include kung fu fantasy “Immortal Demon Slayer,” fan-favorite anime series “Digimon Adventure,” alien time travel epic “Kung Fu Traveler” and “Hellraiser.”

This isn’t the first time Cinedigm has partnered with a streaming service to increase the visibility of its OTT channels. Earlier this year the North American Entertainment company partnered with Twitch, a gamer-focused social video platform owned by Amazon, to launch two linear channels on the platform utilizing content from its CONtv and Combat Go (an OTT channel dedicated to martial arts) properties. The channels were part of a new “Always On” initiative from Twitch to create a section on its site dedicated to housing linear content unrelated to gaming. Unfortunately, Twitch’s push into housing linear content hasn’t lived up to the expectations of the publishers its partnered with. But, for now, Cinedigm fans can still find its programming housed on the platform.

          Miguel Andújar en compañía élite entre novatos de los Yankees      Cache   Translate Page      

MINNEAPOLIS. Basta con darles un vistazo a los números de Miguel Andújar para entender por qué el infielder dominicano de los Yankees se perfila como candidato para el premio al Novato del Año en la Liga Americana. Para él, esos números son evidencia tangible de un sinnúmero de horas de trabajo fuerte, tanto a la defensa y como al bate.

“La preparación es bien importante a este nivel”, dijo Andújar. “Siempre estoy viendo videos de los [pitchers] a los que me voy a enfrentar. Esa es la clave. Simplemente trato de hacer eso, prepararme y ejecutar el plan”.

El lunes, Andújar conectó su 40to doble de la temporada para unirse a Joe DiMaggio (1936) como los únicos novatos de los Yankees que han conectado 40 dobles y 20 jonrones.

Además, Andújar se encuentra empatado con Bob Meusel (1920) en el tercer lugar en dobles para un novato de los Yankees, detrás de DiMaggio (44 en 1936) y Hideki Matsui (42 en el 2003). El dominicano es el primer jugador de la novena del Bronx que suma 40 dobles en una temporada desde que su compatriota Robinson Canó tuvo 41 en el 2013.

“Ser un ligamayorista bueno conlleva muchas cosas”, dijo el manager de los Yankees, Aaron Boone. “No es simplemente usar tu talento en el terreno. Hay que lidiar con muchas cosas a diario, el desgaste mental y físico, la rutina en general. Ver a otros jugadores élite ajustarse a lo que estás haciendo.

“Tener la fortaleza para hacer las cosas a diario, de la manera consistente en las que las he hecho, a medida que sigue perfeccionando su juego - simplemente estoy bien orgulloso de la campaña que nos ha brindado”.

Andújar inició la jornada del miércoles en el primer lugar entre los novatos de Grandes Ligas en hits (153), dobles y remolcadas (79). Se encuentra empatado con su compañero de equipo, el venezolano Gleyber Torres, en jonrones (23) de parte de un novato del Joven Circuito, según informó MLB.COM.

“Definitivamente, es bueno poner eso números”, expresó Andújar. “Siempre que pones números como ésos, los miras y ahí están; reflejan el trabajo. El trabajo que vengo haciendo - ha sido mucho trabajo en ligas menores y aquí también. La meta es seguir haciendo las cosas de esa manera y terminar fuerte”.

Void Rot " Consumed by Oblivion" Death/ Doom Usa 2018
1. Ancient Seed
2. Consumed by Oblivion
2. Celestial Plague


Banda creada en el 2017 en Minneapolis, proyecto recién salido del horno que cuenta con músicos expertos en el circuito Under de su zona de influencia. Bajo el patrocinio de Sentient Ruin Laboratories, un sello del que ya os hablamos en muchas ocasiones y que siempre es una garantía pues trabajan muy bien con las bandas de metal extremo que están empezando.
Las letras versan sobre la ciencia ficción y el mundo cósmico y la música está orientada hacia el Death/ Doom. Ancient Seed nos deja ante las puertas del abismo con un Death/ Doom de manual con el sello de Sentient Ruin Laboratories. Los que estáis metidos en el Under os fijáis en los sellos pues siempre tiran de la misma producción y buscan un sonido selecto, en el caso de este sello siempre con una base rítmica muy sucia que en algunos casos suena Noise, en otros Sludge y la mayoría de las veces a Crust Punk, pero en este caso tiran de Noise y de Sludge que le queda muy bien al tema.
Consumed by Oblivion es un corte con atmósfera sucia, agresiva y donde la melodía siempre está muerta, simplemente no existe y logran un sonido impactante por momentos. No es la típica banda que tira de ritmos lentos sino que nos vamos a encontrar con cambios de ritmo que producen ese efecto deseado y variedad que enriquece el trabajo final.
Celestial Plague es un tema donde ponen sobre la mesa todos esos ingredientes de los que fuimos hablando poco a poco y en la base rítmica nos encontramos con el Noise de nuevo que mezclado con el Death/ Doom siempre resulta eficiente.
Es una banda recomendable para fans de Krypts, Spectral Voice y sobre todo Rippikoulu, de esta última banda tienen su suciedad y oscuridad aunque les falta su épica. Están empezando y el proyecto pinta muy bien.

          Time for an intervention at the Vatican      Cache   Translate Page      

"Men and nations behave wisely," Israeli diplomat Abba Eban once observed, "when they have exhausted all other resources." As the Catholic Church nears its 17th year of sexual abuse scandal, its hierarchy appears determined to fully exhaust every option before settling on the proper course of action: full disclosure and accountability. Even a recent step in the right direction raises issues as to whether the church recognizes the seriousness of the moment.

On Wednesday, the Vatican announced that Pope Francis has called a meeting of presidents from each conference of bishops to discuss new steps to prevent abuse of minors and vulnerable adults. The move bypasses the College of Cardinals, at least in form, and puts the field leadership of the church in direct conference with the pontiff rather than filtered through the Vatican curia. The announcement came out ahead of an urgent audience with the head of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of the Galveston-Houston archdiocese, as well as other American bishops responding to pressure from their parishioners and the media. At the same time, Cardinal Donald Wuerl — mired in controversy after a Pennsylvania grand jury cited numerous occasions where he failed to act properly when dealing with abusers in the priesthood — will discuss resigning his post at the archdiocese of Washington, D.C., with Pope Francis.

On the plus side, this convocation shows that the pontiff recognizes that the abuse scandal involves the entire church, and not just the anglophones. A leaked report from an independent investigation in Germany on the same day as the Vatican's announcement documented over 3,600 victims of sexual abuse over the last 70 years, involving more than 1,600 priests. Many of the records within the church had been "destroyed or manipulated," according to the report, meaning that the totals for both are likely well north of that mark. By going directly to the conference presidents in what is being called a "personal meeting," Francis will have the opportunity to get a direct briefing on the scope and depth of the scandal of abuse, and to outline further steps to deal with it.

However, the report from Germany highlights a topic missing from the announcement: the cover-up for abusers within church hierarchy, which has been going on for decades and has continued right to the present day. The Catholic Church in the U.S. created a significant response to stop abuse itself via the Dallas Charter in 2002, most recently revised this year. What has not happened is an accounting for the systematic efforts to protect priest-abusers by shuffling them within and between dioceses, paying off victims, and ignoring complaints from seminarians of endemic sexual pressure. Cardinal Theodore McCarrick rose to one of the most prominent positions in the American church despite reported widespread knowledge of predatory behavior, knowledge that reportedly went as far as the Vatican and to the leadership of the American church.

Furthermore, the timing of this convocation seems very odd. Why put off this meeting for five months, especially with the ordinary synod set to start in early October? Cardinal Blaise Cupich of Chicago issued a statement endorsing the February meeting as a demonstration of how serious Pope Francis is "about addressing sexual abuse by clergy as a top priority in the global church." A five-month wait for a meeting on sexual abuse might seem like lightning speed on Vatican time, but it seems like a stall tactic everywhere else. That's especially true given the 16 years since the first explosion of scandal from Boston, and even more so in the context of the decades of abuse that took place around the world.

Mostly, however, the structure of this meeting doesn't leave much confidence of progress. The episcopacies involved in this meeting are the same that spent decades either covering up the abuse or doing their best to avoid dealing with it. The clerics have had sixteen years to clean up their acts, and they have failed to take the basic first steps of scandal resolution: full disclosure. Only in a few instances has that been imposed on the bishops, such as in Pennsylvania with a grand jury or in Minneapolis/St. Paul by a lawsuit and criminal indictment.

It's time to call in the full Body of Christ to impose accountability on its leadership. That means finding a formal role for the laity in every diocese to oversee its operations, and having a seat at the table at this convocation to demand action now.

That may discomfort some Catholics used to a strong hierarchical structure, which serves the church well on specific issues. It allows for doctrinal integrity and consistency, applying the teachings of 2,000 years to every corner of the world. Hierarchical control also ensures the integrity of the Eucharist, the center of our communion with Jesus Christ and our connection to the Church Triumphant through the Mass. Catholics do not need to adopt congregationalism in order to provide accountability — or at least they shouldn't.

However, not all operations require Roman collars. Day-to-day business in the diocese and in the seminary, including the handling of complaints about priests and bishops, could easily be tasked to lay employees with independent lines of authority to central lay leadership within national conferences. (This would also free up priests and some bishops in administrative functions to work in parishes, where the pastoral needs are also reaching crisis proportions.) While those lay functions would eventually come under the authority of the bishops at the national level, it would create a long line of people able to blow the whistle on abuse and especially on cover-ups, with enough credibility to make sure it sticks. Had the Vatican and bishops moved to create such a structure 16 years ago, this crisis might have been fully disclosed and well along the way to recovery.

The lack of outside accountability allowed the abuse to fester and become normalized within dioceses. This meeting in five months, as interesting as it might be in some ways, still has that fatal flaw of insularity, the same fatal flaw that prevents resolution. Until Pope Francis and the bishops open the records and install mechanisms of accountability to the laity, this summit will only accomplish what Eban predicted — the exhaustion of all other options before finally doing the right thing.

          Cardinal Wuerl to ask pope to accept his resignation      Cache   Translate Page      

Washington D.C., Sep 12, 2018 / 04:50 pm (CNA).- An archdiocesan spokesman has confirmed that Cardinal Donald Wuerl will soon ask Pope Francis to accept his resignation as the Archbishop of Washington, D.C.

In a Sept. 11 letter to priests, Wuerl said that he would soon meet with the pope to discuss his future, but did not state at the time that he would ask the pope to allow him to resign.

The text of that letter has been posted on the website of the archdiocesan magazine.

A spokesman for Wuerl confirmed to CNA Sept. 12 that, at their next meeting, the cardinal intends to formally ask Pope Francis to allow him to step down. 

“Cardinal Wuerl understands that healing from the abuse crisis requires a new beginning and this includes new leadership for the Archdiocese of Washington,” the spokesman said.

As required by canon law, Wuerl originally submitted his resignation on Nov. 12, 2015, after turning 75 years old.

After Wuerl made a trip to Rome in late August, media reports said that Pope Francis had instructed the cardinal to return to Washington and consult with his clergy about the best way forward for him and the archdiocese.

In a meeting with priests held Labor Day, Wuerl said he would be taking time to pray and reflect on how best to proceed.

The cardinal has been the subject of considerable criticism in recent months. As the successor to Archbishop Theodore McCarrick, Wuerl has faced questions about his knowledge of sexual abuse allegations made against McCarrick, which were first reported to the public June 20.

Following the release of a Pennsylvania grand jury report at the end of July, Wuerl’s record as Bishop of Pittsburgh, where he served from 1988 until 2006, came under close scrutiny. Some cases in the report raised concerns that Wuerl had allowed priests accused of abuse to remain in ministry after allegations had been made.

Although he has faced calls to step down and several recent demonstrations outside his residence, it has been widely believed that Wuerl hoped to remain in his position at least until the general session of the U.S. bishops’ conference in November. That session is expected to focus on the fallout of the recent sexual abuse crises, and Wuerl was said to want to play and active part in helping the Church respond.

Speculation will now turn to the candidates to succeed him in Washington. The Archdiocese of Washington is a highly visible and sensitive post, requiring political and ecclesial acumen. In the wake of the McCarrick scandals, Wuerl’s successor will be expected to lead reform initiatives and restore trust in archdiocesan leadership.

Sources in Rome have told CNA that on his recent visit, Cardinal Wuerl presented several suggestions for his eventual replacement in Washington. While the list remains confidential, several curial sources told CNA that one bishop named was Archbishop Bernard Hebda, the Archbishop of St. Paul-Minneapolis.

Hebda arrived in Minneapolis as an emergency apostolic administrator in 2015 following the resignation of Archbishop Nienstedt, who was himself accused of sexual misconduct. At the same time, Hebda served as the coadjutor Archbishop of Newark and had been slated to succeed Archbishop John Myers.

While in Newark, Hedba gained a reputation as a reformer with a close interest in archdiocesan affairs, conducting unannounced visits to priests and parishes, and choosing to live on the campus of Seton Hall University where the archdiocesan seminary is housed.

Following his arrival in Minneapolis, Hebda brought the archdiocese through a protracted bankruptcy process, following multiple suits brought against it for cases of sexual abuse.

The Archdiocese of Washington told CNA that no firm date had been agreed for Cardinal Wuerl to meet with Pope Francis, adding that the meeting would take place as soon as is convenient for the pope.

          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.

          An Overview of Surety Bonds and How You Benefit from Having One      Cache   Translate Page      

A surety bond is often a misunderstood legally binding contract. Your purpose for contacting surety bond companies Minneapolis MN to get one depends on your professional or personal reasons for needing one. They are part credit and part insurance with guarantees of fulfilling obligations when needed.

A Sure Definition Everyone Understands

Essentially, a surety bond is an insurance policy that is required by an obligee, which is the party requiring the bond. Usually, the obligee is a government agency requiring the bond to protect the government and citizens. If obligations are not met, the agency can file a claim

The person obtaining the bond is called the principal who is required to abide by the terms of the bond. Not doing so is what can lead to a claim.

How to Obtain a Surety Bond

The first step in obtaining a surety bond is determining which one you need. Thousands of bond requirements exist. Purchasing the wrong one will lead to it being rejected by the obligee.

For example, a specific contract, such as jobs over $100,000, requires a contractor bond. A surety bond that is not for a specific contract falls under one of several categories:

  • Court bond – required by a court
  • Fidelity bond – insurance for your business
  • License/Misc. bond – required, but not for a specific contract

Benefits to Having a Surety Bond

Surety bond companies Minneapolis MN making a guarantee on your behalf is usually a better option. You do not have to part with liquid cash to get what you need done.

Credit can be extended through the surety with only your signature as collateral. Going to the bank for the same amount of credit means your house is used as collateral.

Unless you want to become a bond expert, it might be difficult to know what your surety bond guarantees. The good news is you do not have to be an expert. An agent at the surety bond company you choose can explain the specifics.

Since there are thousands of different bond requirements, it is not reasonable to expect them to memorize each one. However, as a service to you, they will research and give you a firm solution.

          The Vital Role of Lithium Ion Batteries in the Medical Device Market      Cache   Translate Page      

Lithium ion batteries come in all sizes. Some of the tiniest are used in the medical field to power bioengineering devices. Often, these devices are implanted within the body to help monitor and maintain health.

Dr. Marissa Caldwell is a battery research and technology scientist at Medtronic. Caldwell was a panelist in a session on “Batteries for Medical and Personal Electronic Devices” during The Battery Show in Novi, Michigan this week. Design News caught up with Dr. Caldwell after the session to find out more about the use of lithium ion batteries in medical devices.

Caldwell describes her day job as “identifying and developing new battery chemistries and new battery designs for products that might come out in five to ten years.” Medtronic, which is one of the world’s largest medical device companies, has its operational headquarters and does much of its research and development in Fridley, Minnesota. It is the only company in the medical device industry that builds its own batteries for use in some of its cardiac and neurostimulation devices.

All Lithium Ion

“All of Medtronic’s rechargeable batteries are lithium ion—we’ve been doing this since 2004,” said Caldwell during her presentation. The recharging of implanted batteries is all inductive. The recharge system is sent home with the patient and is worn over the area where the device is implanted. It recharges right through the skin.

“What do we think about when we are designing batteries?” Caldwell asked rhetorically. “For us, reliability is one of the first things that comes to mind. It really means looking at reliability from all of the different facets, including what the requirements are from the device level and circuit level to how can we anticipate people using this device. What are the different recharge modalities? What are the possible failure modes that could happen? And all of this then gets wrapped up into the testing and modeling and designing. Most batteries that we design to be implantable are designed very conservatively. In order to build in this reliability, we do give up a lot of margins for, say, energy density. We will not be the most energy-dense cell on the market. But we will last longer and be more reliable,” she explained.

Regulations

Meeting regulatory requirements is also a huge part of medical device battery development. In addition to transportation and all of the other different issues that batteries themselves are required to meet, there are different medical-specific requirements from different medical working groups and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Much of the paperwork involved goes into proving that the batteries that are going into medical devices will actually perform in the manner claimed. According to Caldwell, “It’s really hard to make a battery that’s going to last a long time, and it’s even harder to prove that it is going to last a long time.”

One of the big driving forces in the electric vehicle battery market is the elimination of expensive cobalt from the battery chemistry. This is not necessarily the case for medical batteries. “We’re not as cost sensitive to cobalt as most people, so we don’t have as big a driver to get to cobalt-free. The drive to nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) and cobalt-free materials is not as relevant to us. Getting to fast-charge graphite and higher energy density, higher voltages—those are all things that we are very interested in,” said Caldwell.

That is not to imply that new technologies, such as solid state electrolytes, aren’t being actively researched. “The more we can design in safety, it’s always on our radar. Solid state electrolytes are something we are keeping a close eye on, but we are still kind of gauging its maturity. Power is a problem still for most of the solid electrolytes—and manufacturability. So if you look at, say, some of the oxides and the garnet materials and harder inorganics, how are we going to manufacture it—especially in our really little batteries? For some of the things, like polymers and soft materials, what is the tradeoff versus safety?”

          How Can the US Win at 5G?      Cache   Translate Page      
Meredith Attwell Baker, president and CEO of CTIA, spoke at MWCA 2018 about the need for improved regulation around 5G. (Image source: Mobile World Congress) 

5G will be a key enabler for autonomous cars, the ever-expanding Internet of Things (IoT), smarter and faster artificial intelligence, and the push toward smart cities. But that's only if regulators can either get on board or get out of the way. The need for regulator support behind 5G was the main focus behind the opening keynote of Mobile World Congress Americas (MWCA) 2018 in Los Angeles. And while some of that support is already there, plenty of challenges lie ahead.

According to a report released in April by CTIA, a trade association representing the US wireless communications industry, the US is among the top four countries leading the world in “5G readiness.” Yet it currently sits at number three, lagging behind China at number one (holding a “narrow lead,” according to CTIA) and South Korea holding second place. The US is ahead of Japan, which currently sits in fourth place.

Speaking at MWCA, Meredith Attwell Baker, president and CEO of CTIA, stressed the need for the US to lead the 5G race. Baker was optimistic, noting that a year ago, there were no 5G deployments planned in the United Sates—compared to this year, where the first 5G deployments are beginning. Three mobile carriers—Verizon, Spring, and T-Mobile—are planning to launch 5G networks in Los Angeles alone. She said that by 2019, 50 cities across the US will have 5G. “Thank goodness we Americans hate to lose,” she noted.

Speaking as part of the keynote, Sunil Bharti Mittal, chairman of GSMA—a trade organization that represents mobile network operators and organizes Mobile World Congress—was much bolder in his criticisms of how government regulations are obstructing the proliferation of 5G. “Regulators need to be much more sympathetic to the fundamental building blocks of this entire ecosystem,” Mittal said, adding that the mobile industry is taxed at a level comparable to tobacco if one factors in all of the spectrum charges, auctions, and license fees. “This is the most heavily taxed industry in the world...This industry moves the GDP of the world by five percent. And yet it becomes the punching bag for most regulators and finance ministers to grab easy money.”

During her portion of the keynote, Baker called for the FCC to modernize federal rules around 5G and give clear direction to localities for procedures and fees around the technology. “We are competing with nations that approve new wireless sites in weeks or days", she said, noting that it took 30 years for the country to build the 150,000 towers for today's networks. She noted that 5G will require five times as much, but we don't have 30 years to wait.

Let the Spectrum Auctions Begin

Key to the US winning the 5G race will be policies adopted by Congress, the Presidential Administration, and the FCC. “Policymakers are critical to our success...that we have the ability and resources to meet more communities,” Baker said. “Congress, the FCC, and the administration know we can't afford to lose this race. And it starts with spectrum.”

The country will need hundreds of megahertz of new wireless spectrum opened up to facilitate 5G communications. In August, the FCC announced that it had established application and bidding procedures for the first 5G spectrum auctions in the US, covering licenses in the 28 GHz (27.5-28.35 GHz) and 24 GHz (24.25-24.45 and 24.75-25.25 GHz) bands. The FCC says bidding for the 28 GHz UMFUS licenses will commence on November 14, 2018, with bidding for the 24 GHz licenses to commence at a later date after the 28 GHz auction concludes.

In a statement, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said the commission is planning more auctions in 2019. “In the second half of 2019, we intend to hold an auction of three more millimeter-wave spectrum bands: 37 GHz, 39 GHz, and 47 GHz,” Pai said. “Between that auction and the auctions for which we establish procedures today, we’ll push almost 5 GHz of spectrum into the commercial marketplace over the course of the next 17 months.” Pai said the FCC is also looking to reform its infrastructure rules to be friendlier to small-cell and fiber-based networks. “These are the kinds of aggressive actions we need to take to promote innovation, investment, and United States leadership in 5G,” he said.

The first step toward that infrastructure reform could come as soon as the end of this month. On September 4, FCC commissioner Brendan Carr unveiled a Senate proposal to cut costs and streamline approval periods for 5G small cells. The plan, which is set for a vote at the FCC's Open Meeting on September 25, aims to reform laws around the large towers built to provide wireless coverage to large areas to make small cell deployments easier. “Policymakers can’t claim success if 5G is only deployed in big cities like New York and San Francisco,” Carr said in a release statement. “Those ‘must serve’ cities will get next-gen mobile broadband almost regardless of what we do. Success means every community getting a fair shot at 5G. To achieve that success, we need to update our rules to match this revolutionary new technology.” 

Small Cells, Big Plans

Small cells like the 5G Radio Dot from Ericsson can be deployed onto existing infrastructure if regulations allow. (Image source: Ericsson)

Because of its higher frequency, 5G covers less range than legacy wireless communications. Therefore, it is deployed via backpack-sized systems called small cells. Less range means more small cells are needed to cover a larger area. Because of their size, small cells can be fitted onto existing structures, such as buildings or even existing cellular towers. And new power-saving transceivers being developed by companies like Analog Devices are promising to make small cells even tinier.

The challenge comes in allowing the industry to deploy these small cells in a cost-effective manner. States like Indiana have already enacted small cell bills that require localities to give the thumbs up or down to small cell deployments within a certain timeframe. It also limits the fees that localities can charge for permission and construction. The FCC plan is modeled after these sort of state-level plans. According to the FCC, since Indiana adopted the bill, the city of Indianapolis has become home to the most intensive 5G investment in America. Over 1000 small cells have been built across the state.

In a statement of his own, Indiana State Senator Jim Merrit, author of the state's small-cell reform legislation, said that removing regulatory obstacles has paved the way for substantial investments in 5G in the state. “We made common-sense changes in our state law to encourage wireless investment, and those efforts are paying off in a tremendous way. This new technology is going to change our world significantly, and I believe Commissioner Carr’s proposals will have that same positive effect on the rest of the nation.”

In his own portion of the MWCA keynote, Marcelo Claure, executive chairman of Sprint, praised the FCC order, which could speed up small cell deployment. He talked about the effect of 4G networks on the US economy and his belief that 5G will have an even more significant impact. “In 1998, we lost the 3G war," Claure said. “American carriers spent hundreds of billions building 4G LTE networks...4G created the app revolution...Facebook, Uber, Instagram. All of these companies would never thrive if we didn't build a high quality 4G network.”

Claure said the adoption of 4G has added trillions of dollars to the US economy over the years. The same 5G report from CTIA, where Claure also serves as chairman, cites numbers from Recon Analytics that support his claim. The report notes that US leadership in 4G accounted for nearly $100 billion of the increase in annual GDP by 2016 and an 84 percent increase in wireless-related jobs from 2011 to 2014. A 2017 report by Accenture (commissioned by CTIA) estimated that the direct and indirect benefits of 5G could add create up to three million jobs and add approximately $500 billion to US GDP over the first seven years.

Sprint is currently in negotiations to merge with T-Mobile, a move that Claure said would be the “best way for America to win at 5G.” The merger has, however, raised expected antitrust concerns. This week, the FCC said it was pausing its review clock on the merger to further review the complexities that come with two of the nation's largest mobile carriers becoming a single entity.

The White House Steps In?

For its part, the Trump Administration has been shown to be making 5G a priority. In March, President Trump issued an executive order blocking a proposed mega-merger between Broadcom and Qualcomm. Trump cited concerns over national security in his executive order, but analysts have speculated that the move was also motivated by attempts to maintain the US position as a leader in 5G by not allowing Singapore-based Broadcom to take over Qualcomm.

Earlier this year, in regard to the Sprint/T-Mobile deal, US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told the press that building a next-generation 5G network was a priority for the Trump Administration—for its potential impact on both commerce and national security.

In January, a leaked memo from Trump's National Security Council discussed the idea of creating a centralized, government-funded, nationwide 5G network. According to leaked documents, some officials believe that having the government build a 5G network itself—rather than relying on third party carriers—would be the best way to ensure that the US holds a lead in 5G and protects itself from cybersecurity threats from “bad actors” (specifically China). The idea of a nationalized 5G network has been widely criticized and shunned by both the industry and politicians, however. The White House later clarified that the idea was merely floated and was not in the process of being enacted as policy.

So, So Worth It

Something as drastic as a having taxpayers foot the bill for a nationwide 5G network may not be in the cards. But most agree that the government will have to move as fast on the policy end as the mobile industry has moved on the technology side if the US is going to keep up with, or even outpace, its competitors in the 5G landscape. There will no doubt be pain points ahead—especially once the engineering challenges of 5G are factored in. But CTIA's Baker said it will all be necessary.

“[5G] will be like the movie Crazy Rich Asians,” she told the MWCA audience. “Your wife may have dragged you there, but it was so, so worth it.”

          Lithium Ion Batteries Provide Reliable Backup Power For Data Centers      Cache   Translate Page      

Lithium ion batteries are dominating the future of electric vehicles (EVs), personal electronics, and grid scale utility backup systems. One additional and relatively new application for lithium ion batteries is their use in uninterruptible power systems (UPS) for large data centers. Participants at the recent “Batteries to Support Critical Power Grids” workshop, which took place prior to The Battery Show in Novi, Michigan this week, heard Thomas Lynn, technical director of LiiON LLC, speak on that topic.

Big Data

“The data center market, if I look at the lead-acid (battery) sector, is about $3 to $3.5 billion annually, globally. In North America, it is about $1.3 billion,” Lynn told Design News. “Lithium only has about 2 to 3 percent of that, but it’s starting to turn. The way the market works, you have the engineering design firms putting out a spec, and all those specs now have lithium in them,” he noted.

Lithium ion holds a number of advantages over lead acid in data center applications. First of all, the life expectancy of a lead-acid battery data center system is about 3 to 6 years. According to Lynn, a system built from lithium ion batteries will last much longer—as much as 15 to 20 years. This alone makes lithium more cost effective.

Another benefit provided by lithium ion batteries is the accurate information on the battery cell and pack health. This information can be obtained by the battery management system (BMS), which is used to monitor state of charge and cell temperature in a pack. A BMS is a necessary part of a lithium ion system to ensure that the battery cells remained balanced and within their voltage limits. The data provided by the BMS can also be used to accurately assess how well the battery system is operating.

LiiON S.E.S.

Lithium ion battery packs also boast lighter weight and smaller size compared to an equivalent lead-acid battery system. As a result, lithium can offer the same size with a smaller footprint or more power from a pack of the same physical size.

The lower weight is a huge factor, as a lithium pack has much lower floor loading than heavy lead-acid batteries. This allows lithium systems to be installed many floors above the ground without needing additional floor bracing. “I think it’s going to change the co-location data center, where you will start seeing high rises,” Lynn told us. “Instead of one or two story data centers, you will start seeing them go up because real estate is so expensive—especially in places like Ashburn, Virginia, the biggest hub in North America for data centers. The one we just worked on was three stories. I’m guessing the next one will be five stories. I think this is a transition in the market to look at different ways of doing it,” he said.

Chemistry

The preferred chemistry for lithium batteries used for data centers is lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP). These cobalt-free batteries have good power capacity, but do not store quite as much energy as the cobalt-containing cathodes of the chemistries used in EVs. LFP batteries are considered safer for flammability than their higher capacity cousins.

Ironically, as lithium-powered EVs are becoming more popular and making lithium ion batteries more mainstream, they are beginning to use up much of the available lithium supplies. “Now that the EV market is starting to take off, battery makers are shifting all of their resources there,’ said Lynn. “The lead time for the UPS market is (now) over 30 weeks, and this market expects 4 to 6 week deliveries. So they are starting to run into a big supply issue. Most of those guys (battery manufacturers) are running into the same thing. Nobody has enough capacity to match the EV (demand).” 

LiiON was established in 2009, specifically to address the application of lithium batteries in the standby power market. The small footprint of a system that can safely deliver mega-watts of power, nearly instantly in the event of a power grid failure, is providing yet another application that demonstrates the versatility of lithium ion battery systems.

As the US marked the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center which claimed the lives of more than 3,000 people, one commemoration ceremony had a surprisingly patriotic and unexpected guest. The Andover Fire Department, based in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, 15 miles north of the state capital Minneapolis, used a cable suspended between two fully extended fire truck ladders to hoist a massive American flag over a freeway packed with passing cars, honking in salute of the first responders who died during the attacks on September 11, 2001 in New York. The department's chief Jerry Streich captured the exact moment the bald eagle landed atop the fire truck's tumescent ladder. First responders and passersby lining the freeway overpass gasped in astonishment as the national symbol graced them with its presence. "Isn't that unbelievable?" Streich says in amazement. "This eagle just landed on the aerial, while we're doing the 9/11 memorial. Phenomenal." "There's no better symbol to represent America today than a flag - but then for an eagle to land on a fire truck holding a flag," the fire chief said. "I mean, it doesn't get much more symbolic than that."

Sau khi chấm dứt trận giao hữu với Chile, Son Heung-min cởi đôi giày và tất để lộ ra đôi bàn chân bầm dập.

Bàn chân Son Heung-min “tan nát” sau suất miễn nghĩa vụ quân sự - Ảnh 1.

Đôi bàn chân bầm dập của Son Heung-min sau một mùa hè thi đấu găng tay.

Hình ảnh đôi bàn chân với những móng bị cụt, tím đen, xiêu của Son Heung-min khiến người hâm mộ bóng đá Hàn Quốc và cá nhân chủ nghĩa tiền đạo này phải đau lòng. Đây là hệ quả của một quãng thời kì thi đấu liên tiếp không ngừng nghỉ vì những đích rất quan trọng với sự nghiệp của Son.

Bàn chân Son Heung-min “tan nát” sau suất miễn nghĩa vụ quân sự - Ảnh 2.

Với tấm HC vàng ASIAD 2018, Son Heung-min được miễn quân dịch.

Ngay khi trác tuyệt Anh kết thúc, ngôi sao sinh năm 1992 tức thì hội quân cùng đội tuyển Hàn Quốc tham dự World Cup 2018. Trở về từ Nga, Son Heung-min không được ngơi nghỉ nhiều nhưng mà tham gia chuyến du đấu Hè cùng đội bóng thành London.

Từ Mỹ, Son Heung-min đáp chuyến bay đến Indonesia chinh chiến ở sân chơi ASIAD 18. Đúng như sự kỳ vọng, tiền đạo 26 tuổi và đồng đội đã bảo vệ thành công ngôi quán quân, qua đó được miễn nghĩa vụ quân sự, như mục tiêu toàn đội đề ra ban đầu.

Bàn chân Son Heung-min “tan nát” sau suất miễn nghĩa vụ quân sự - Ảnh 3.

Son Heung-min phải di chuyển liên tục và thi đấu tới 8 trận chỉ trong 26 ngày.

Những tưởng sau ASIAD 18, Son Heung-min sẽ được dưỡng sức rồi đến Anh để khoác áo Tottenham thì kế hoạch lại đổi thay. Trở về Seoul, Son lại tập hợp ngay cùng đội tuyển, thi đấu 2 trận giao hữu gặp Costa Rica và Chile để ra mắt tân HLV Paulo Bento.

Không chỉ thi đấu với mật độ dày đặc, quãng đường chuyển di của Son Heung-min cũng lên đến hàng chục ngàn km bằng máy bay từ Mỹ, nước Anh đến Indonesia rồi về Hàn Quốc và mới nhất lại bay trở lại Anh để cùng Tottenham chuẩn bị cho mùa giải mới.

san sẻ về đích sắp tới, Son Heung-min cho hay: " Thật hạnh phúc vì lại được thi đấu ở Premier League và Champions League. Tôi sẽ vậy để được ra sân thẳng và ghi được nhiều bàn thắng. Tottenham là đội bóng mạnh và chúng tôi muốn lấy danh hiệu để cảm ơn những sự ủng hộ của người ngưỡng mộ".

          Talking about Skyways and Street Life in Minneapolis and Winnipeg with the CBC      Cache   Translate Page      
Following up on my appearance on the CBC last year to discuss urbanist reactions to Winnipeg, I was on the CBC again yesterday to discuss the pros and cons of skyways and tunnels in downtowns. There is a big debate going on right now about the key intersection in downtown Winnipeg, Portage and Main, and whether or not to re-introduce crosswalks and pedestrian access at the corner.

For people who want to bring back street life at the intersection, it doesn't appear to be going very well.

Here's an excerpt from the latest story on it, with poll results:

"The data shows Winnipeggers really don't like this idea of opening Portage and Main to pedestrians. There is no demographic — not young people, not downtowners, not downtown residents — who want to open the intersection," said Mary Agnes Welch, a senior researcher for Winnipeg-based Probe.  
"There is broad and deep, intense dislike for this idea."

Anyway, I appeared on the CBC radio news to explain about Minneapolis unique skyway system and what lessons, if any, the tensions around skyways might have for folks in Winnipeg.

Fun! I'll have to go back to Winnipeg in a hundred years when they finally get rid of the massive concrete barriers around the sidewalks of their downtown.




[This is what the main intersection of Portage and Main looks like, similar to a shuttered skyway.]

          METALLICA's Concert In Lincoln, Nebraska Sets Record As 'Heaviest' Production Ever      Cache   Translate Page      
According to the Lincoln Journal Star, 15,000 fans attended METALLICA's September 6 concert at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska, which set a record as the heaviest ever, with a "dynamic weight" of up to 240,000 pounds. The five-year-old building's roof held up under the weight which hung from the arena's rigging grid and steel beams attached to the major trusses. That was even more impressive because the show was performed on a stage in the center of the arena, with all the production gear, sound and lighting, hung in a circle in the middle of the building. The setup required 158 rigging points and took less than five hours to complete — far less than the nearly 10 hours it took to get everything ready at Minneapolis's Target Center two days earlier. "The structural design was developed for doing concerts," Pinnacle Bank Arena manager Tom Lorenz told the Lincoln Journal Star. "That was a desire we had during the design phase, about having the structural capacity to hang the biggest shows and to have the building really fitted for concerts. The architects, engineers and builders gave us that. That gives us a leg up. This is unique. Not every building will be able to put up all of [METALLICA's] show. We were able to do it well and do it fast." According to Pollstar Boxoffice, METALLICA's average gross over the past 36 months was $3.2 million, with an average of 32,313 tickets sold per show. Touring in support of its latest album, "Hardwired… To Self-Destruct", that arrived in November 2016, METALLICA launched the world tour in Latin America a month before the disc's release. In early 2017, prior to the North American stadium tour, the band made festival appearances and headlined concerts at venues in Asia, Europe and Latin America. Although METALLICA played U.S. stadiums last summer, the band was mostly indoors for the first leg of its European tour last fall. Professionally filmed video footage of METALLICA performing the song "The Unforgiven III" on September 6 at Pinnacle Bank Arena can be seen below.

          I've no idea      Cache   Translate Page      

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about how successful the Minnesota Orchestra tour to South Africa was. The Music for Mandela tour brought people to the music who had never heard a symphony orchestra before. It also brought people together in a way I’ve not seen before. In Minneapolis, audiences had more people of colour than I’ve seen in 35 years of going to Symphony Hall. And that brought a spontaneity of appreciation I’ve also not seen before, with outbursts of appreciation after movements rather than the normal withholding of applause until the end.



I really enjoyed this freshness.

All of this took my thoughts in a different direction. 

I realized how privileged we are to have radio and TV to provide ways to listen to the music we love. We can check out a program that we don’t know before we spring for tickets. And if we like the music at a concert, we can download it and listen to it as many times as we want.

Go back a couple of hundred years: if people were lucky enough to go to attend a concert, the evening’s program may be the only time they would ever hear the pieces – no phonographs, no radio, no Walkmans, no TV.

How frustrating!

What did they think of this? Did they just accept it? Did they hustle for tickets? Did they buy the sheet music? 

I have no idea.

Maybe this lack of repeat possibilities is the reason we read about concerts where the audience demanded movements and whole pieces be repeated; where encores were sometimes numerous – the audience wanting more than their money’s worth.



And this wondering about what happened several hundred years ago brought me back to the present. Will those people who attended their first classical concert during the Music for Mandela series attend another? 



Will they use their fingertip-access to music to listen to more classical music? 

Will the classical audience shake off their focus on Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms to download African music? 


Will they make the effort to listen to the great musicians from across the African continent? Will they jump up and dance?


I have no idea.

But I'm really pleased that I can listen as much as I want.

Selon Marc Stein, journaliste du New York Times, les Timberwolves "n'ont aucun projet pour le moment de s'intéresser à Joakim Noah s'il devait être libéré par les Knicks". Les rumeurs d'une arrivée à Minneapolis de Noah étaient alimentées par la présence au sein des Timberwolves de quatre de ses anciens coéquipiers de Chicago et surtout de Tom Thibodeau, l'entraîneur qui en fait l'un des meilleurs défenseurs de NBA.

QB Win-Loss Records:

Thursday, September 13, 2018 date numerology:  TNF = 40 / 13 / 41 / 14

9/13/2018 = 9+13+20+18 = 60 (Bengals = 60)
9/13/2018 = 9+13+(2+0+1+8) = 33 (Bengals = 33) (#33, Tra Carson)
9/13/2018 = 9+1+3+2+0+1+8 = 24 (Bengals = 24)
9/13/18 = 9+13+18 = 40 (TNF = 40)
9/13 = 9+13 = 22 (Bengals and Ravens are 22 and 22 against each other)

Also, keep in mind that it is 'Week Two'.




https://www.pro-football-reference.com/boxscores/game_query.cgi?tm1=rav&tm2=cin&yr=all

-1.0 BAL, O / U 44  (Ohio = 47, Maryland = 47; One = 47)
*This game comes 44-days after AJ Green's 30th birthday

In light of the O / U, keep in mind the Ravens won by 44 points last week, 47-3.

The Bengals and Ravens last played a span of 257-days (55th prime), December 31, 2017.
Marvin Lewis is 55-years-old; Sacrifice = 55

The Ravens are 8-14 @ Cincinnati

They can become 9-14, earning their 9th win in 23 attempts on the road.

23 is the 9th prime number
*Thus it makes sense for Ravens to pick up the 9th win (Primes are always huge)
*This is the Ravens 23rd season
*Football = 83, the 23rd prime; Joseph Vincent Flacco = 83


Marvin Lewis = 55 (Harbaugh is 55-years old)


John Harbaugh = 59 (Marvin Lewis is 59-years old)

This will be the 45th game between the two teams.
Geometry = 45 *Don't forget when you sum 1 through 9, it totals 45

Andy Dalton:  October 29, 1987 (46-days after, span of 47; 47, the 15th prime)
Dalton's 8th season (19, the 8th prime)
Andy Dalton, #14

Joe Flacco:  January 16, 1985 (240-days after, 34-weeks and 2-days) (Ravens = 34) (Maryland = 34)
The game is also 125-days before his upcoming birthday, he'll turn 34.
Joe Flacco's 11th season; Joe Flacco = 34
Joe Flacco, #5

This will be Joe Flacco's 156th regular season game; Cincinnati Bengals = 156
*Thirty-Three = 156 (33 date numerology)

Cincinnati would fall to 1-1 at home, like 11.
Cincinnati = 66; 66, the 11th triangular number

Harbaugh will stay on 66 career losses with a win:
https://www.pro-football-reference.com/coaches/HarbJo0.htm

He will also pick up his 96th career win.  Cincinnati = 96

*It is Cincinnati's 51st season.  Cincinnati = 51

Marvin Lewis's game last week to open the season was his 241st.  *241, the 53rd prime

Pick:  Ravens

****************

The Sunday Games have the following date numerology:

9/16/2018 = 9+16+20+18 = 63
9/16/2018 = 9+16+(2+0+1+8) = 36
9/16/2018 = 9+1+6+2+0+1+8 = 27
9/16 = 9+16 = 25


-3.0 ATL, O / U 44 (Georgia = 44; Super Bowl on 44 date numerology in ATL)

This will be the 47th game against the Panthers and Falcons, all in the regular season, no playoff matches.  The Falcons lead the series 28-18.  *Panthers = 47

Notice the Panthers can pick up their 19th win.  The next time these teams meets, December 23, 2018, will be a date with 19 numerology, just before the start of 2019.


The rematch is 98-days later, or a span of 99-days

12/23/2018 = 1+2+2+3+2+0+1+8 = 19 (Cam = 19)

*That said, Cam Newton's next career win will be his 67th, the 19th prime number.

Cam Newton:  May 11, 1989 (Games comes 128-days after his 29th birthday)
Matt Ryan:  May 17, 1985 (Games comes 122-days after his 32nd birthday)

Matt Ryan can pick up his 100th career win.  Hundred = 38; Panthers = 38

Keep in mind these will be the two states in the NFL impacted by Florence.  Matt Ryan will come into the game with 95 regular season wins.  Hurricane Florence = 95

Having the Panthers fall to 1-1 makes sense, in light of the Black Panther ritual of Week 1.

Black = 11
Beast = 11
Black Panther = 666; Number of the Beast = 66; Cam got his 66th win
*Ron Rivera would be stuck on 65 wins (6+5 is 11)

Both the Falcons and Panthers would be 1-1, and feature black logos.

Also noteworthy, Ron Rivera of the Panthers comes into the game 65-47-1 as an HC.  He can earn his 66th win, or his 48th loss.   Atlanta = 48

If he won, he would be 66 and 47.  Number of the Beast = 66; Beast = 47

Ron would also be 2-0.  Ron = 20; Beast = 20

At the same time, Dan Quinn, the Falcon's HC, comes in 29-20.  He is looking for his 30th win, or 21st loss.  30 should be a big number in 'Week 2'.

*The Spread of 'five' has Gematria of 21 and 66.

Keep in mind this will be Quinn's 50th game.  Fifty = 33 / 66

Pick:  Falcons
Over / Under:  47 is noteworthy, which is over


-7.5 LAC, O / U 43  (Chargers = 43) 

This will be the 36th game between the two teams on a date with 36 numerology.  The Chargers lead the series 23-10-2 heading in.  Bills = 36; Buffalo = 36 / 63

The rookie, Josh Allen, is getting his first NFL career start 118-days after his 22nd birthday, May 21, 2018.  Los Angeles, California = 118

*Josh Allen threw 44 TDs at Wyoming, the 44th State
*He was the 7th pick in the draft; 59, the 17th prime; 17, the 7th prime
*Both teams are in their 59th seasons

At the same time, this game will come 83-days before Phillip Rivers 37th birthday, December 8, 1981.  Football = 83; 83, the 23rd prime; Los Angeles = 37

Rivers can pick up his 111th career win in New York.  New York = 111

Note:  Anthony Lynn, the coach of the Chargers, fell to 9-9 all-time last week to start the 99th NFL Season.  That was a riddle overlooked.

*With a loss this week, the Bill's Coach, Sean McDermott, will fall to 9-9 all-time

Pick:  Chargers



-1.0 GB, O / U 46

This will be the 114th game between the Vikings and Packers in the regular season, and the 116th overall.  The Packers lead the regular season 59-52-2 and are tied 1-1 in the playoffs.

Thus the Packers are looking for their 61st all-time win.  61, the 18th prime
And the Vikings are looking for their 54th.

The next time the Packers and Vikings play is in Minnesota, on a date with 54 numeorlogy.  That is November 25, 2018.  11/25/18 = 11+25+18 = 54

Consider the Vikings 54th win overall, will also be their 53rd in the regular season, in the year of Super Bowl 53, and where 53 is the 16th prime.  That makes things interesting because this game is on the 16th of September.

Aaron Rodgers is looking for his 105th career win, and 62nd at home.  Minneapolis = 62

The date numerolopgy is favoable for Aaron as well.

Aaron Rodgers = 63 (63 date numerology)

The game also comes 77-days before Rodgers 35th birthday, December 2, 2018.

Green Bay = 77; Opening Night was his 77th home game for the Packers

Recall the Rodgers injury last year came on October 15, the day leaving 77-days left in the year.  That game was a span of 337-days before this one.  337, the 68th prime; Sacred Geometry = 68
https://freetofindtruth.blogspot.com/2017/10/42-77-322-558-aaron-rodgers-fake-injury.html





Sacred Geometry = 68; Vesica Piscis = 53; Number = 28

Kirk Cousins is looking for his 28th career win, or 32nd career loss.  He can be kept at 27 wins on a date with 27 numerology, or he can get his 28th win, 28-days after his 30th birthday, which was August 19, 2018.  Packers = 28; *Man = 28

As for the coach, Mike MacCarthy comes into the game with 122-wins.
Mike Zimmer = 122 (Opposing coach) (Aaron Rodgers 12/2, Dec. 2 birthday)
*122 is the big San Francisco number, where McCarthy was when he drafted Alex Smith over Rodgers, and next week he faces Alex Smith)

Mike Zimmer can pick up his 41st career win in reg. season.  Green Bay = 41
He can also pick up his 44th win all-time.  Wisconsin = 44; Packers = 44

Pick:  Vikings (I'm wondering if Rodgers will aggravate his injury)



-1.5 HOU, O / U 45

It's the battle of the old Houston team vs. the new Houston team.

This will be the 33rd matchup (Oilers = 33) and the Titans lead the series 17-15, all games being in the regular season.  In light of this being 2018, emphasis on 18, all eyes are on that 18th win.  Of course, the Titans can pick up the 18th.  At the same time, the Texans can get their 16th, where 53 is the 16th prime number, and it would come on the 16th.  4x4 = 16 (Watson, #4, can become 4-4)

Tennessee = 137 (33rd prime); Game is in TN

This game will come 47-days before Marcus Mariota 25th birthday, October 30, 1993.
DeShaun Watson = 47
This game will come 2-days after DeShaun Watson's 23rd birthday, September 14.
Texans = 83 (83, the 23rd prime)

*It is also interesting that DeShaun Watson played at Clemson, in the Carolinas, where the storm is impacting on his birthday... and last year he was drafted by Houston, the city that was impacted after hosting the Super Bowl, 29-weeks earlier.  Football = 29; Texans = 29; Harvey = 29

This will be Mariota 46th game and he is playing for his 22nd win, or 25th loss.  At home it will be his 12th win, or 11th loss.  Houston, Texas = 46

As for Watson, it will be his 8th game and he is playing for his 4th win, or 5th loss.   Watson wears the number 4.  On the road he can become 2-3 like 23, or 1-4, like 14.  As we covered, he is turning 23 2-days before the game, but he is also facing the Titans.  Titans = 43 (14th prime), and 1-4 is a lot like 14.

If he does fall to 3-5, that is like 35.  QB = 35
At the same time, 4-4 is like 44.  African-American = 44; (MM = 44, Mariota's initials)

With a Titan win, they will improve to 2-0, and the Texans will fall to 0-2.
Titans = 20; Texans = 20

Pick: Neutral, leaning Titans
O / U:  I like the over, at 46 (In light of Houston, Texas)
Spread:  - 1.5 is like 15 (47, 15th prime; DeShaun Watson = 47, 47-days from MM's birthday)


-8.5 NO, O / U 50

This will be the 18th game between the Saints and the Browns, in the early NFL season of 2018.  The Browns lead the Saints 13-4 to date.  Vesica Piscis = 134

With another upset over the Saints, the Browns would improve to 14-4.
Drew Brees = 144; New Orleans = 144

This game will come on Drew Brees's 35th week of his age, born Jan. 15, 1979
QB = 35; Taylor = 35; *Tyrod = 53

Drew Brees is on 149-career wins, the 35th prime number
He can get his 150th win total, and 84th at home, becoming 84-48 at home.  Cleveland = 48
He could also be upset, again, and sit at 83-wins.  Cleveland Browns = 83

As for Tyrod Taylor, this game will come 44-days after his 29th birthday, August 3, 2018.
Africa-American = 44; Last week his former Bills got spanked by 44; Jackson = 44
*Forty-Four = 144
*Ohio = 29; Football = 29 / 83; Cleveland Browns = 83

It will also be a span of 45-days, and this will be his 45th NFL game, looking for his 23rd win or 22nd loss.  83, the 23rd prime; Drew Brees = 45; New Orleans = 45
The Line is near 9... when you sum 1 through 9, it totals 45... Brees wears #9

*August 3 was the date Hue Jackson's mother died.  Mother = 38 / 83; Murder = 38 / 83

This game comes a span of 105-days from Sean Payton's 55th birthday, Dec. 29, 2018, and he is sitting on 105 career wins and 72-losses.  Hue Jackson = 55

This game comes 36-days before Hue Jackson's 53rd birthday, on a date with 53 numerology.  He is currently at 9-wins and 39-losses, and 1-31 with the Browns, facing a 1-32 in his 33rd game.
Cleveland = 33; Mandorla = 33

Pick:  Neutral
Like I've said before, evern when EVERYTHING lines up for the Browns, they still lose, but I'm wondering if this could be the shocker of the week, again using the Saints.  If it happens, Drew Brees appears to be the QB who will fall on his number this year, like Eli Manning fell on his last year.

Drew Brees = 99 (99th NFL Season)
Eli Manning = 98 (98th NFL Season was very bad for Eli)


-1.5 MIA, O / U 43 (Dolphins = 43) (Florida = 43)
*Keep in mind this is the Dolphins 53rd season; 53, the 16th prime (Game on 16th)

This will be the 105th regular season game and 106th game all-time between the two teams.  The Dolphins lead 54-49-1 in the regular season and are 0-1 against the Jets in the playoffs.

54 is a big number with the Jets.  Jets = 54 / 54

The Jets can get their 50th regular season win over Ryan Tannehill.  Ryan = 50
That would leave the Dolphins on 54-regular season wins against the Jets.

The game will come 51-days before Tannehill's 31st birthday.
Jets can pick up 51st win all-time against Dolphins
The game will come 103-days after Darnold's 21st birthday.
103, 27th prime; Jets = 27; Miami = 27; Ritual = 27; 27 date numerology

It will be Tannehill's 39th game on the road, in New York.  New York = 39
Tannehill can also pick up his 39th career win.  NY = 39; NYC = 39

It will be Tannehill's 79th career game, the 22nd prime.

If Darnold wins, Ryan Tannehill will be stuck on 38 wins.  Sam Darnold = 38

With a New York loss, they would fall to 1-1, like how New York is the 11th State.

Keystone = 33; Steelers & Eagles established in '33; *Patrick = 33

A Steelers win would make the Chiefs 1-1, and the Steelers 1-0-1.
Chiefs = 31; Steelers = 31; 31, the 11th prime
1-0-1 is a bit like 101, the 26th prime, and I expect Le'Veon Bell, #26 to return for Week 3, in the 26 and 6 ritual...

Ben Roethlisberger can pick up his 149th carer in the 35th matchup.  149, the 35th prime

-3.0 PHI, O / U 44

This will be the 15th regular season game between the two teams in the regular season and the 19th overall.  The Eagles lead 8-6 in the regular season, and are 2-2 in the playoffs.

With an Eagles loss, they would fall to 8-7 against the Bucs in the reg. season.
Philadelphia Eagles = 87

They would also fall to 10-9 all-time.  Tampa Bay Buccaneers = 109

This will be the 19th game between the two teams all-time.  Nick = 19; Flag = 19

Nick Foles can pick up his 19th career loss!
Nick will be 26-19.  Flag = 26 / 19

We know about the Eagles and the flag.  Don't overlook that the Bucs symbol is a flag.

This game also come 239-days after Nick Fole's birthday.  239, the 52nd prime

The flag was sewn in Philadelphia at 239 Arch St.

Last week the Eagles beat the Falcons in Philadelphia.  Atlanta Falcons = 239

This is going to be Fitzpatrick's 121st career game.  He comes in with 49 wins.
Revelation = 49 / 121; Eagles = 49; Philadelphia named from Revelation

With a loss, Foles would become 10-10 on the road.  Revelation = 1010 (Jewish)

Philadelphia would fall to 1-1, like 11.  66, the 11th triangular, Revelation, the 66th Book

The game is 69-days (span of 70) from Fitzpatrick's 36th birthday.

With a win, he will stay on 70 career losses.

Pick:  Bucs


-5.5 WSH, O / U 45.5

Andrew Luck was born in D.C., the "LAND OF 47", and he can pick up his 47th career win in his hometown.  Luck = 47; D.C. = 47

*That said, last week had a chance to win #47 against an 'Ohio' team.  Ohio = 47

This will be the 31st game between the two teams, the 11th prime.  Luck = 11. D.C. = 11
*They have played 30.  Colts = 30

With a Colts win, both teams would be 1-1, like 11.
*This is the Colts 66th season, 66, the 11th triangular number

*The horseshoe is a symbol of luck.

The Colts lead 20-10, meaning the Redskins could pick up their 11th, or the Colts could get #21.

This game will come 4-days after Luck's 29th birhtday, September 12, 2018.  29 is 2+9 = 11

This game will come 132-days After Alex Smith's 34th birthday, a span of 133-days.
United States of America = 132; Government = 133
*139, the 34th prime, The week began September 13, or 13/9, like 139

Alex Smith can get his 52nd win.  Government = 52
He can also sit on 51 wins.  Federal = 51

With a loss, he will be stuck on 91 regular season wins, the 13th triangular number, in his 13th playing season.  Think about 13 and luck.... Redskins = 99; Thirteen = 99; *Two = 13 (Week 2)
*Luck = 233 (Jewish) (233, the 13th Fibonacci Number)

Consider Mike Pence, the VP, is from Indianapolis.  Last year he participated in the flag ritual in the Colts vs 49ers game, which finished with a 26-point winner.  Flag = 26

Luck will head into the game with 77 career games played, and D.C. is on the 77th Meridian.

His record is 46-31, and he is looking for win 47 or loss 32.  His current road record is 20 and 19, so he is looking for win 21, or loss 20.

Pick:  Neutral, leaning Colts

*This game will come 101-days after Mike Pence's 59th birthday, June 7.
101, the 26th prime; Flag = 26; Philadelphia = 101

This will be the 81st regular season game between the two teams.  Cardinals = 81

The Rams lead 40-38-2.  Counting the playoffs, the Rams are 1-0, thus 49-38-2.

LA can pick up its 41st win in Week 2.  LA = 41; LA = 13; Two = 13

In other words, this will be the 82nd game between the two teams all-time, in the Rams 82nd season.
Vesica Piscis = 53 / 82; Los Angeles = 53

The 11 point spread is cute too.  Eleven = 99

          Somali Muslim Cop Who Shot Woman Was Hired AFTER Being Found ‘Unable to Handle Stress’ of Job      Cache   Translate Page      
Betsy Custis, right, and others attend a march in honor of Justine Damond at Beard's Plaissance Park, Thursday, July 20, 2017, in Minneapolis. Damond, of Australia, was shot and killed by a Minneapolis police officer on Saturday, July 15 after calling 911 to report what she believed was a possible assault. (Aaron Lavinsky /Star Tribune via AP)
Identity politics kills. If there is any lesson to be drawn from the killing of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, that is it. The city of Minneapolis was so eager to have a Somali Muslim police officer on the force that it hired a man who had been found incompetent to hold the job. Further, it did not fire him even when he proved that he was indeed unfit to be a cop.
Fox News has reported that “the former Minneapolis police officer charged in the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond once put a gun to a driver’s head during a traffic stop and sometimes ignored calls, according to court filings indicating that psychiatrists and training officers voiced concerns about his fitness for duty.”
Not only that, but “[Mohamed] Noor was flagged by two psychiatrists during a pre-hiring evaluation in early 2015. The psychiatrists said he seemed unable to handle the stress of regular police work and exhibited an unwillingness to deal with people.”
The psychiatrists added: “Noor was more likely than other candidates to become impatient with others over minor infractions, have trouble getting along with others, to be more demanding and to have a limited social support network. The psychiatrists said he ‘reported disliking people and being around them.’”
But he was hired anyway. The foolishness of that decision became clear almost immediately.
“In one instance two months before the shooting, Noor reportedly pointed a gun at the head of a driver who was pulled over for giving the middle finger to a bicyclist and then passing a vehicle without signaling.”
The Minneapolis Police Department and city officials wanted Mohamed Noor to succeed so badly, he was placed on and graduated from a fast-track program to get onto the force in the first place. He was the first Somali Muslim on the Minneapolis police force; in 2016, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges expressed her excitement about that fact: “I want to take a moment to recognize Officer Mohamed Noor, the newest Somali officer in the Minneapolis Police Department. Officer Noor has been assigned to the 5th Precinct, where his arrival has been highly celebrated, particularly by the Somali community in and around Karmel Mall.”
SPONSORED
Hodges wasn’t excited because Mohamed Noor had the skills necessary to become a fine police officer. She was only excited because he represented a religious and ethnic group that she was anxious to court.
His competence as a police officer was always secondary to his ethnicity and religion.
Thus he remained on the force even though there were three complaints against him in two years. A neighbor reported: “He is extremely nervous ... he is a little jumpy ... he doesn’t really respect women, the least thing you say to him can set him off.” When the neighbor heard that Noor was the cop who had shot an unarmed woman, he wasn’t surprised: “When they say a policeman shot an Australian lady I thought uh oh, but then when they said who it was, I was like, ‘OK.'”
None of the indications of Mohamed Noor’s unfitness to a police officer mattered to Minneapolis officials. They had too much invested in his success to acknowledge that their exercise in diversity and multiculturalism was a miserable failure. Noor was a symbol of our glorious multicultural mosaic. He was a rebuke to “Islamophobes” and proof that what they say is false. He was, for Minneapolis authorities, nothing less than the triumph of their worldview.
Apparently there was nothing whatsoever he could have done to be removed from the police force -- until he killed Justine Damond. But even then, he remained on the force for months after the shooting. Noor could have marched into Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges’ office and announced that she would henceforth be his infidel slave, and he would have remained on the force.
If the Minneapolis Police Department hired and fired police officers based upon their fitness for the job, and not on their usefulness as symbols of Minneapolis’ commitment to diversity and resolve to fight “Islamophobia,” Justine Damond would be alive today.
This case should put an end to the hiring of incompetent police officers because of their ethnicity and religion. But it won’t.
