          “Hurt Road” by Bruce Stewart      Cache   Translate Page      

It’s 1967. Fifteen-year-old Hank Goodman, his parents killed in an automobile accident, comes to live with his grandparents in Crosscut, Louisiana, not terribly far from Leesville. It’s a small town, he’s from Detroit, and Hank is not impressed. At first. But he meets a girl named Becky Rayburn, he begins to grow fond of his grandparents, and soon finds himself settling in. 

But Hank is the grandson of a Taylor, and the Rayburns don’t talk with the Taylors because of a long-ago tragedy. Becky clearly likes him but tells him she can’t see him. Then an aunt and uncle arrive, and with nothing to keep him in Crosscut, Hank goes with them to live in Denver.

A few years and two tours of duty in Vietnam later, Hank returns to Crosscut. His grandfather has died; Becky was married and had a child but is now a widow. One thing that hasn’t changed was Carl Walker, the son of the man who controls the parish (county). Carl gets into often serious trouble as fast as his dad pulls strings and gets him out of it. And now Carl wants Becky. Hank, however, is standing in his way – and that means trouble.

Bruce Stewart
Hurt Road by Bruce Stewart is the story of Hank Goodman, struggling to get past the death of his best friend in Vietnam, rediscovering his love for a girl whose family wanted no part of him, and trying to find how to create a life. It’s a heartwarming, engaging story about small-town life with its goodness, badness, and everything in between. (It’s especially engaging for some like me whose father came from a similar small town in Louisiana.)

Stewart grew up in Louisiana, and for 28 years he served as a Louisiana State Police trooper, retiring in 2009. He was also deployed to New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. He is also the author of the novel Sing Me Something Happy (2017).

The tension between Carl and Hank slowly builds and then begins to ratchet upward, making for a tense conclusion. Hurt Road combines suspense, romance, and an appreciation or small-town life into a successful story.

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

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

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

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

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

1. Hurricane Katrina

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

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

2. Hurricane Harvey

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

3. Hurricane Maria

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

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

4. Hurricane Sandy

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

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

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

5. Hurricane Ike

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

          A Professor of Biostatistics Explains Why People Ignore Evacuation Orders      Cache   Translate Page      
Here's why some residents refuse to leave their homes.

Editor's note: This article orginally appeared at the Conversation on Oct. 16, 2016: "Thousands of people didn’t evacuate before Hurricane Matthew. Why not?"

As Hurricane Matthew approached the Atlantic coast earlier this month, more than 2.5 million people were told to evacuate in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. Further orders were issued last week in eastern North Carolina, where devastating floods have killed 26 people.

Many residents followed these orders, but others stayed in place. In South Carolina, for example, estimates indicate that about 35 percent of residents under evacuation orders actually left their homes. In highly threatened coastal areas around Charleston and Beaufort the rate was about 50 percent. Florida Governor Rick Scott held multiple briefings urging people to leave storm zones. “Do not surf. Do not go to the beach. This [storm] will kill you,” Scott warned.

Hurricane Matthew illustrates the challenges of managing disaster evacuations effectively. Multiple factors influence decisions about evacuating, including residents’ genders, how long they have lived in their homes and their feelings of responsibility for friends and family members who decide not to move. Often people who remain are poor and highly vulnerable.

I study how communities prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters, including hurricanes and wildfires. As a public health researcher, I focus on potential health impacts and look for ways to use data to make communities and individuals more resilient against future disasters.

By understanding who is likely to obey or ignore evacuation orders, authorities can use data to reduce the number of false alarms and concentrate limited resources on groups who are most likely to choose to shelter in place. There is always a potential trade-off between mitigating risk and false alarms, but improved forecasting and better predisaster planning can dramatically reduce potential financial and opportunity costs of evacuating.

Gauging risk

Research shows that several factors strongly influence the decision to evacuate. One of the most important is previous disaster experience. Matthew was the first major hurricane to make landfall on the Atlantic coast of Florida since Wilma in 2005, so it probably was the first such experience for many people who moved there over the following decade.

People’s expectations and perceptions of risk also strongly influence their willingness to leave storm zones. Authorities issuing evacuation orders count on residents to remember positive experiences with evacuation or negative experiences from not evacuating.

The problem is that many people have short memories – even in highly vulnerable areas. In Charleston, hurricane evacuation experience during Hurricane Hugo in 1988 strongly predicted evacuation decisions four years later during Hurricane Emily. However, when Hurricane Fran made landfall some 170 miles to the north eight years later, many residents had adjusted their risk perceptions and decided not to evacuate. After all, there hadn’t been a bad hurricane in nearly 10 years.

A similar pattern occurred during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. After hundreds of thousands of Louisiana and Mississippi residents evacuated ahead of Hurricane Ivan in 2004, the storm weakened from Category 5 to Category 3 and moved east, making landfall in Baldwin, Alabama and causing minimal damage in Louisiana and Mississippi. As a result, many residents questioned the need to evacuate a year later as Katrina approached.

Protecting the most vulnerable

Cost is typically a weaker predictor of behavior. Generally, up to 75 percent of evacuees can stay with friends or family. But for those who cannot, the costs of fuel, hotel rooms and lost wages can significantly impact family budgets. One recent study calculated that evacuating before a Category 3 hurricane would cost a household approximately US$340 to $525. Timing matters too: Weekend evacuations can cost less, particularly for those without paid sick leave or vacation time.

While these costs may seem modest compared to the risks of staying in place, households that cannot afford to evacuate are also vulnerable in other ways. They are more likely to be located in flood plains or to live in mobile homes, and to lack reliable family transportation.

This is particularly true in the southeastern United States. Between 2000 and 2012 populations in the southeastern Atlantic and Gulf Coast census regions increased nearly twice as fast as the national average. Along with this growth, the proportion of coastal residents who are socially vulnerable – for example, who are elderly, work in low-wage service industry jobs or belong to racial and ethnic minorities – also rose. In eastern North Carolina, a high-poverty region, many residents displaced by post-Matthew flooding cannot afford to replace damaged goods or repair their homes.

But it’s not all about money. Residents who have personal transportation and the financial means to evacuate do not always go. Having a strong social support network tends to correlate positively with good health: For example, if you have a larger and stronger social network you have a lower risk of age-adjusted mortality. But in disasters those social support networks may actually represent responsibilities that prevent people from moving out of harm’s way.

This dynamic was clear in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. While many residents were criticized for failing to evacuate, they made this decision based on shared norms, local culture and traditions, responsibilities to social networks and a collective history that led them to trust their social networks rather than following instructions from authorities.

While the evacuation of New Orleans for Katrina was widely viewed as a debacle, it actually succeeded on many counts. According to the National Academy of Engineering, more people were able to leave the city in a shorter time than was even thought possible.

However, many who couldn’t move were triply vulnerable: they had low incomes or lacked transportation, lived in older homes in flood-prone neighborhoods and had little access to or influence on the development or implementation of local disaster plans and policies. We need to do more work to translate bad experiences like this into policies that can protect residents’ health and safety, while also respecting inherent community strengths that sometimes lead to evacuation failures.

Preparing for the next storm

It remains to be seen how well evacuations ahead of Hurricane Matthew succeeded. Available information indicates that 35 to 50 percent of people affected by mandatory evacuation orders throughout the storm zone complied. These rates are comparable to prior evacuations. And as in past storms, some coastal residents moved away from storm zones only to be trapped there by inland flooding.

As of October 16, 44 deaths had been attributed to Hurricane Matthew in the United States. They include residents who drowned after driving onto flooded roads; crush injuries and trauma from trees falling on homes and cars; and inappropriate use of generators. There will be more deaths and injuries as residents return home to clean up and are exposed to fallen power lines, mold and other stresses that exacerbate existing chronic health conditions.

It will take longer to calculate how many deaths and injuries could have been avoided if more people had followed evacuation orders, and to repair storm damage. Rebuilding, and making hard choices about where not to build again, will challenge residents and policymakers. But it is critical to grapple with these issues so we can do a better job responding to the next storm, which likely won’t be 10 years away.

The Times-Picayune reports WR Cameron Meredith was the New Orleans Saints' top offensive acquisition in free agency this year, but the wide receiver did not play in Week 1. The 25-year-old missed about three weeks of training camp, but he was healthy for Week 1. HC Sean Payton explained on Wednesday the decision to make him inactive last Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "I think more than anything else it had to do with just the reps he was behind coming off of training camp," Payton said. "We'll see how he's doing this week. I think from a health standpoint he's doing good. It's just getting him up to speed from a timing element and getting him the reps he needs to be ready to function and go in and play consistently." With Meredith out, the Saints used WR Austin Carr a bit more than expected as he played 44 of 64 offensive snaps against the Buccaneers. Carr finished the game with two catches for 20 yards.

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

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

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

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

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

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

METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Drew Brees isn't worried about the Saints' conspicuously heavy reliance on the passing game during a season-opening loss.

On one hand, the result begs the question of how much the four-game suspension of running back Mark Ingram is affecting New Orleans' ability to gain advantages in time of possession from running the ball.

          [OPINION] American Horror Story - Every Season Ranked      Cache   Translate Page

In the fall of 2011, American Horror Story seemed like a bit of a gamble for FX. Not much was known about the series when it debuted other than the buzzy cast (Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, and Jessica Lange) and lauded creators (Glee and Nip/Tuck producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk). A gothic soap with twisted thrills, it quickly became the most talked about series around every water cooler. With ratings rising consistently throughout the first season, it wasn’t long before AHS was an outright sensation, wowing both critics and audiences with dark, daring, and often disturbing storylines, electrifying performances, and some truly incredible cinematography and set dressing.

At the end of the first season, which has since been dubbed ‘Murder House’, Murphy and Falchuk announced that AHS would continue on as an anthology series, utilizing much of the same cast each year, but telling different stories with (mostly) brand new characters. Today, the show should be credited as kicking off the now-omnipresent wave of anthology series that dominate television: Fargo, Genius, American Crime, True Detective, and Murphy’s own American Crime Story and Feud are just a few. Over the years, debates have raged online on as to which season of AHS reigns supreme – and which one belongs six feet under.

With the eighth season, ‘Apocalypse’ set to debut tonight, I present the definitive ranking of every American Horror Story season so far... according to me.

7 – ‘Cult’ (Season 7)


Main Cast: Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Billy Eichner, Allison Pill, and Billie Lourd.

A season that was notable only for Evan Peters’ phenomenal performance as psychotic cult leader Kai Anderson, 'Cult' was set around the election of Donald Trump in late 2016. Murphy crossed the stories of Ally Mayfair-Richards (Paulson), a liberal restaurateur who is haunted by her paralyzing phobias, and Kai, a mentally deranged young man who plays on the growing fear and hostility in America to form a suburban cult.

More than anything, 'Cult' served political platitudes that didn’t have much more to say than, ‘Trump is evil’ and ‘sexism and racism are bad’. What Murphy and his team neglected to do was write any fully-formed characters or work towards a clear climax. So while the season started off promisingly enough, it eventually gave way to the same issues that have plagued too many recent seasons of AHS. It meandered for episodes on end, became overstuffed with needless side stories, and used characters as puppets for the plot rather than ever really developing them. Despite an amusing repertoire of mostly-new cast members (Colton Haynes and Leslie Grossman also joined the fun), 'Cult' felt like it never really knew where it was going.

Perhaps most egregious of all, the audience was never even shown how the titular cult was formed, which was indicative of a larger issue with the season. Too many of the important plot points happened offscreen, probably because they made no sense and Murphy couldn’t figure out how to write them. It felt like the writers decided to do a topical season based on the election and just threw together all these pieces as they went along. Bits of it were fun, but as a whole, it was a mess.

By the end of the season, it seemed as though the series had totally given up on the main narrative. Instead, we got Evan Peters playing a range of real-life cult leaders from Charles Manson to Jim Jones in multiple episodes. These vignettes ranged from mildly amusing to totally absurd, and despite Peters’ stellar performance, they all felt unnecessary and little more than inconvenient distractions from the season getting to any logical conclusion. When all was said and done, the story had become so full of plot holes, implausibilities, and leaps in logic that it became impossible to enjoy the few things that the show was doing well.

6 – ‘Hotel’ (Season 5)


Main Cast: Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Denis O’Hare, West Bentley and Angela Bassett.

Another example of a season that started off with promise but completely crumbled by the halfway point, 'Hotel' was a major transition for AHS, being the first season without star Jessica Lange. In her place, Murphy introduced Lady Gaga as The Countess, a bloodsucker who calls the mysterious Hotel Cortez home. While the direction, sets, costume design, and cinematography are among the best of the series, the cast and writing didn’t quite live up to the rest of the package.

Particularly trite was the story of the Ten Commandments Killer, a so-called mystery that became painstakingly obvious almost immediately. As with 'Cult', 'Hotel' introduced a number of interesting characters that the writers had no idea what to do with. Instead, by mid-way through the season they were adding a number of bizarre side-plots that distracted from the main arc and added little to the narrative. This is all the more devastating due to the fact that heavyweight talent like Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett and Matt Bomer were essentially being thrown scraps.

One character and plot remains largely memorable, however. Denis O’Hare gave one of the finest performances of the entire series as Liz Taylor, an enigmatic transgender bartender who also resides within the Hotel Cortez. The flashbacks to Liz’s life before her transition, as well as how she came to the hotel, remain a crowning achievement of AHS, at once devastating and triumphant. O’Hare, who has consistently been a series highlight, gave a bold and fearless performance that makes me question why he wasn’t given more to do in 'Roanoke' or brought back at all for 'Cult'.

5 – ‘Roanoke’ (Season 6)


Main Cast: Sarah Paulson, Cuba Gooding Jr., Kathy Bates, Adina Porter, Angela Bassett, Lily Rabe, Andre Holland, Wes Bentley and Cheyenne Jackson.

'Roanoke' will always get some bonus points in my book for shaking things up. While Murphy typically announces the theme of each season months in advance (coupled with vast promotional campaigns from FX), 'Roanoke' remained a mystery until the season premiere aired… and even then, fans weren’t exactly sure what they were watching. Initially billed as ‘My Roanoke Nightmare’, the season was essentially split into two, with the first five episodes telling the story of a haunting in North Carolina, presented as a docu-drama complete with actors performing re-enactments and the real-life 'survivors’ telling their stories through confessional footage. At episode six, the paradigm shifts, and the story is then told through found footage billed as ‘Return to Roanoke: Three Days in Hell’.

If all of that sounds a bit confusing, it was. Many actors were playing two, sometimes three, roles. Nevertheless, it was mostly wildly entertaining, and even a bit scary in parts. It was also the rare installment of the series that got better as it went along. What it lacked, however, were any truly great characters (though Paulson’s campy, entitled actress Audrey Tindall was endlessly amusing). Even the weakest seasons of AHS have given us memorable character arcs, while 'Roanoke' was much more focused on style and story than any real character development. The result was a season that was fun if not fantastic. That is, until the truly awful finale, which deserted all thrills in favor of more gimmicky show-within-the-show pieces that let down all the excitement and tension that had built for the previous 9 weeks.

The need to unnecessarily, and illogically, shoehorn in Lana Winters from 'Asylum' was confirmation that Murphy’s decision to oblige fan-demand that each season be connected could hurt the show more than it might ever help it. Hopefully it will work out much better for 'Apocalypse'.

4 – ‘Freak Show’ (Season 4)


Main Cast: Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Michael Chiklis, Finn Wittrock, and Dennis O’Hare.

'Freak Show' was the toughest to place on my list. Divisive amongst fans while it aired, it has aged better for me than any installment that has come since. It was also the last season to feature Jessica Lange in a lead role, and despite several incredible performances from many talented actors in subsequence seasons, the series has never been able to fully recapture the magic that Lange brought to each of her characters. Here, she starred as Elsa Mars, an enigmatic ex-pat who runs Fräulein Elsa's Cabinet of Curiosities in Jupiter, Florida. While Lange gave a killer performance, it was actually a newcomer who stole the show.

Finn Wittrock joined the series as Dandy Mott, a spoiled, rich, man-child who developed a perverse obsession with Sarah Paulson’s conjoined twins Bette and Dot. Mott, after forming a chill-inducing friendship with (the sorely underutilized) a murderous clown named Twisty, becomes the true villain of the season. Wittrock’s performance was electric, consistently both terrifying and oddly endearing – he reminded me, at times, of a young Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange.

Likewise, the cinematography and set decoration also harkened back to classic Kubrick. Directors like Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and Michael Uppendahl brought an often-claustrophobic feeling to the series, utilizing gorgeous sets and locations that were at once stylish, sprawling, and haunting. 'Freak Show' wasn’t perfect (let’s just pretend 90% of the musical numbers never happened) but it had tons of fantastic characters and was able to nail a satisfying ending for pretty much every one of them.

3 – ‘Coven’ (Season 3)


Main Cast: Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Dennis O’Hare, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Emma Roberts, Lily Rabe, and Frances Conroy.

While easily the most popular season ratings-wise, 'Coven' was the installment where AHS began to show real cracks. Looking back, it has many of the same issues that later proliferated in subsequent seasons. Still, many fans call 'Coven' their absolute favorite. More so than he did with the first two seasons, Murphy fully embraced supernatural camp here, telling the story of Miss Robichaux's Academy, a conservatory for young witches in New Orleans run by headmistress Cordelia Foxx (Paulson), the daughter of the current Supreme, Fiona (Lange). The main storyline follows the question of which young woman will become the next Supreme, a witch born every generation who embodies specific gifts and magical abilities known as the Seven Wonders.

Murphy also tied in some haunting New Orleans lore, including the twisted story of slave killer Delphine LaLaurie (Bates), voodoo priestess Marie Laveau (Bassett), and the notorious Axeman serial killer (Danny Huston). Plus, Stevie Nicks showed up and twirled around and sang some songs.

My main problem with this season was the lack of follow-through for so many introduced storylines. We discover early on that each of the young main witches has a specific unique gift (or curse, in some cases) but they’re never explained. I was hoping that the finale would shed some light, for example, on why Taissa Farmiga’s character Zoe spontaneously kills men when she has sex with them. No such luck. There were also too many characters who were inessential to the plot (this is the only season where Evan Peters' character feels like an after-thought). If you take 'Coven' for what it is – ridiculously campy, scary fun with great performances and snappy writing – it’s easily enjoyable. If you’re looking for cohesive stories or character arcs with follow-through, look elsewhere.


2 – ‘Murder House’ (Season 1)


Main Cast: Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Dennis O’Hare, Lily Rabe, and Francis Conroy.

The season that started it all still holds up as one of the strongest installments of the franchise. A biting thriller centered around the Harmon family’s quest to start over after a series of troubling events, the first season was a fascinating mix of scary, sexy, sad, and twisted. Knockout performances from Connie Britton and Jessica Lange put the series on the map, but it was the entire ensemble that made this season so memorable.

'Murder House' accomplished what too many of the following seasons have failed to: it told a singular, cohesive story that nailed a spectacular climax (“Birth”) and a satisfying conclusion (“Afterbirth”). Murphy expertly utilized a large cast with stories spanning not only decades but entire generations, to tell a universal story about infidelity, infatuation, love, loss, and family. Despite the ghosts, monsters, and – of course – Rubber Man, the most affecting moments were human: Vivien (Britton) being pushed to the limits of her sanity, Tate (Peters) having to face up to his brutal, murderous past, and Constance (Lange) reflecting on the horrifying realities of her broken family.

1 – ‘Asylum’ (Season 2)


Main Cast: Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Zachary Quinto, Joseph Fiennes, James Cromwell, and Lizzie Brocheré.

Not just the best season of AHS, 'Asylum' is also one of the finest limited series to air this decade. Masterfully directed, written, and designed, and populated with brilliant characters, 'Asylum' wasn’t just creepy – it was downright terrifying. It was also frequently funny, sharp, and incredibly poignant.

Anchored by a powerhouse performance from Jessica Lange as Sister Jude, a nun maintaining patients at Briarcliff Manor in 1964, 'Asylum' also spanned several decades and told multiple stories but was able to follow a clear throughline and deliver a satisfying conclusion. This is perhaps even more impressive when you take into account exactly how much was covered in just 13 episodes: dozens of complex and often endearing patients, a nun possessed by the devil, a gruesome serial killer with unsettling mommy issues, a deranged doctor who may or may not have been a Nazi (Anne Frank shows up), a killer in a Santa suit, and even some aliens.

Despite all of this, what 'Asylum' got right amidst even the most otherworldly trappings, was that the human stories mattered most. Murphy gave us characters who we could root for, so that when they were in danger or being oppressed and tortured we genuinely cared. This also led to more genuine scares than any other season. Sarah Paulson’s reporter, Lana Winters, went through some of the most macabre and horrifying trials of any character on the series, and she remains one of the most beloved because she was so thoughtfully developed and written. Even with all the wild implausibilities, viewers could see themselves in these characters and situations - and nothing is more frightening than that.

Andrea Mitchell on Wednesday unsurprisingly attempted to politicize disaster relief, lecturing the FEMA administrator about responsibility for infrastructure. She even went back to Hurricane Katrina as an example. To her annoyance, FEMA’s Brock Long corrected her on the facts. Mitchell lectured Long: “But the fact is, just after Katrina, there was terrible infrastructure in parts of New Orleans. That is a federal responsibility. These are American citizens.” The FEMA administrator shot back: “No, you are actually wrong on that. It’s not a federal responsibility to upkeep the infrastructure. Actually, most of the infrastructure” is “owned by the private sector.”

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

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

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

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

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

1. Hurricane Katrina

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

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

2. Hurricane Harvey

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

3. Hurricane Maria

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

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

4. Hurricane Sandy

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

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

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

5. Hurricane Ike

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


          A Professor of Biostatistics Explains Why People Ignore Evacuation Orders      Cache   Translate Page      
Here's why some residents refuse to leave their homes.

Editor's note: This article orginally appeared at the Conversation on Oct. 16, 2016: "Thousands of people didn’t evacuate before Hurricane Matthew. Why not?"

As Hurricane Matthew approached the Atlantic coast earlier this month, more than 2.5 million people were told to evacuate in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. Further orders were issued last week in eastern North Carolina, where devastating floods have killed 26 people.

Many residents followed these orders, but others stayed in place. In South Carolina, for example, estimates indicate that about 35 percent of residents under evacuation orders actually left their homes. In highly threatened coastal areas around Charleston and Beaufort the rate was about 50 percent. Florida Governor Rick Scott held multiple briefings urging people to leave storm zones. “Do not surf. Do not go to the beach. This [storm] will kill you,” Scott warned.

Hurricane Matthew illustrates the challenges of managing disaster evacuations effectively. Multiple factors influence decisions about evacuating, including residents’ genders, how long they have lived in their homes and their feelings of responsibility for friends and family members who decide not to move. Often people who remain are poor and highly vulnerable.

I study how communities prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters, including hurricanes and wildfires. As a public health researcher, I focus on potential health impacts and look for ways to use data to make communities and individuals more resilient against future disasters.

By understanding who is likely to obey or ignore evacuation orders, authorities can use data to reduce the number of false alarms and concentrate limited resources on groups who are most likely to choose to shelter in place. There is always a potential trade-off between mitigating risk and false alarms, but improved forecasting and better predisaster planning can dramatically reduce potential financial and opportunity costs of evacuating.

Gauging risk

Research shows that several factors strongly influence the decision to evacuate. One of the most important is previous disaster experience. Matthew was the first major hurricane to make landfall on the Atlantic coast of Florida since Wilma in 2005, so it probably was the first such experience for many people who moved there over the following decade.

People’s expectations and perceptions of risk also strongly influence their willingness to leave storm zones. Authorities issuing evacuation orders count on residents to remember positive experiences with evacuation or negative experiences from not evacuating.

The problem is that many people have short memories – even in highly vulnerable areas. In Charleston, hurricane evacuation experience during Hurricane Hugo in 1988 strongly predicted evacuation decisions four years later during Hurricane Emily. However, when Hurricane Fran made landfall some 170 miles to the north eight years later, many residents had adjusted their risk perceptions and decided not to evacuate. After all, there hadn’t been a bad hurricane in nearly 10 years.

A similar pattern occurred during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. After hundreds of thousands of Louisiana and Mississippi residents evacuated ahead of Hurricane Ivan in 2004, the storm weakened from Category 5 to Category 3 and moved east, making landfall in Baldwin, Alabama and causing minimal damage in Louisiana and Mississippi. As a result, many residents questioned the need to evacuate a year later as Katrina approached.

Protecting the most vulnerable

Cost is typically a weaker predictor of behavior. Generally, up to 75 percent of evacuees can stay with friends or family. But for those who cannot, the costs of fuel, hotel rooms and lost wages can significantly impact family budgets. One recent study calculated that evacuating before a Category 3 hurricane would cost a household approximately US$340 to $525. Timing matters too: Weekend evacuations can cost less, particularly for those without paid sick leave or vacation time.

While these costs may seem modest compared to the risks of staying in place, households that cannot afford to evacuate are also vulnerable in other ways. They are more likely to be located in flood plains or to live in mobile homes, and to lack reliable family transportation.

This is particularly true in the southeastern United States. Between 2000 and 2012 populations in the southeastern Atlantic and Gulf Coast census regions increased nearly twice as fast as the national average. Along with this growth, the proportion of coastal residents who are socially vulnerable – for example, who are elderly, work in low-wage service industry jobs or belong to racial and ethnic minorities – also rose. In eastern North Carolina, a high-poverty region, many residents displaced by post-Matthew flooding cannot afford to replace damaged goods or repair their homes.

But it’s not all about money. Residents who have personal transportation and the financial means to evacuate do not always go. Having a strong social support network tends to correlate positively with good health: For example, if you have a larger and stronger social network you have a lower risk of age-adjusted mortality. But in disasters those social support networks may actually represent responsibilities that prevent people from moving out of harm’s way.

This dynamic was clear in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. While many residents were criticized for failing to evacuate, they made this decision based on shared norms, local culture and traditions, responsibilities to social networks and a collective history that led them to trust their social networks rather than following instructions from authorities.

While the evacuation of New Orleans for Katrina was widely viewed as a debacle, it actually succeeded on many counts. According to the National Academy of Engineering, more people were able to leave the city in a shorter time than was even thought possible.

However, many who couldn’t move were triply vulnerable: they had low incomes or lacked transportation, lived in older homes in flood-prone neighborhoods and had little access to or influence on the development or implementation of local disaster plans and policies. We need to do more work to translate bad experiences like this into policies that can protect residents’ health and safety, while also respecting inherent community strengths that sometimes lead to evacuation failures.

Preparing for the next storm

It remains to be seen how well evacuations ahead of Hurricane Matthew succeeded. Available information indicates that 35 to 50 percent of people affected by mandatory evacuation orders throughout the storm zone complied. These rates are comparable to prior evacuations. And as in past storms, some coastal residents moved away from storm zones only to be trapped there by inland flooding.

As of October 16, 44 deaths had been attributed to Hurricane Matthew in the United States. They include residents who drowned after driving onto flooded roads; crush injuries and trauma from trees falling on homes and cars; and inappropriate use of generators. There will be more deaths and injuries as residents return home to clean up and are exposed to fallen power lines, mold and other stresses that exacerbate existing chronic health conditions.

It will take longer to calculate how many deaths and injuries could have been avoided if more people had followed evacuation orders, and to repair storm damage. Rebuilding, and making hard choices about where not to build again, will challenge residents and policymakers. But it is critical to grapple with these issues so we can do a better job responding to the next storm, which likely won’t be 10 years away.

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.

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.

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)
          McDonald's Employees to Strike in 10 Cities      Cache   Translate Page      
Emboldened by the #MeToo movement, McDonald's workers have voted to stage a one-day strike next week at restaurants in 10 cities in hopes of pressuring management to take stronger steps against on-the-job sexual harassment. Organizers say it will be the first multistate strike in the U.S. specifically targeting sexual harassment. ... Among the strike organizers is Tanya Harrell, 22, of New Orleans, who filed a complaint with the EEOC in May alleging that her two managers at a local McDonald's teased her, but otherwise took no action after she told them of sustained verbal and physical harassment by a co-worker. Harrell, who makes $8.15 an hour, said she and many of her colleagues were skeptical of the company's commitment to combating harassment. "They want people to think they care, but they don't care," she said. "They could do a way more better job."
          Mandy Has Blood, Guts, and Rock ‘n’ Roll—and Nicolas Cage with a Battle Ax      Cache   Translate Page      
There is a sword fight in which the swords are chain saws. by Erik Henriksen

Before all the blood starts spurting and gurgling, Mandy offers an epigraph, its letters bloody red: “When I die / Bury me deep / Lay two speakers at my feet / Wrap some headphones / Around my head / And rock and roll me / When I’m dead.”

The words go uncredited (they are, it turns out, the last words of murderer and kidnapper Douglas Roberts, who was executed in 2005), but as they appear, over fiddly electric guitar and fuzzy synth, they set Mandy’s tone. This is a movie that’s kind of sad, kind of lyrical, and kind of rock ’n’ roll; its first half is an earnest, artsy character study, and its second is a greasy, sordid revenge flick. It also features one of Nicolas Cage’s most bugfuck crazy performances, so: Mandy isn’t for everyone. But for those it is for? It’s a hell of a thing.

Viewers eager for the rock, though, will have to wait: The first half of Panos Cosmatos’s surreal saga is more self-indulgent prog-rock than blistering metal. A glittery title card—“The Shadow Mountains, 1983 A.D.”—and a spacey, slow hour scored by Jóhann Jóhannsson and King Crimson introduce us to logger Red (Cage) and his artist wife, Mandy (Andrea Riseborough), who live deep in the woods, eat in front of the TV, make dumb jokes, and talk in bed. Red wears a beard and Mandy wears Sabbath and Crüe T-shirts. Every shot looks like a black-light poster, and it’s only a matter of time until something terrible happens.

Because this is a revenge movie, that terrible thing happens to Mandy: Abducted by a drugged-out, “crazy evil” cult of Jesus freaks, Mandy spurns the advances of their preening leader, Jeremiah (Linus Roache), and is brutally slaughtered before Red’s eyes. Of course she is: While Mandy is mostly unpredictable, it still dumbly clings to the misogynistic tropes of the revenge genre.

At which point Mandy pivots: Cage’s eyes widen, his voice rises, and, after sliding on some aviators and forging a gleaming battle ax, he grabs a crossbow named “the Reaper” and starts hacking his way through Jesus freaks. The results are gruesome, silly, and satisfying: Blood spurts and gurgles, there’s a tiger named Lizzie, and a sword fight in which the swords are chain saws.

Cage’s craziest and best performances are in movies that—like him—just fucking commit: Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Adaptation, Leaving Las Vegas, Raising Arizona. (And... Face/Off? Sure! Face/Off.) Add Mandy to the list, and relish the sight of Cage, face slathered in blood and cocaine, channeling rage, glee, and bone-deep mourning. One scene, in which our hero lurches and grunts in a bathroom as he chugs vodka in tighty-whities and tube socks, is pure... Nicolas-Caginess in the best possible way.

True, Mandy never quite jells; it’s smeared somewhere between super-specialized art house and broad VHS schlock. It’s alternately creepy, sordid, and goofy; even within scenes, it changes its tempo and switches the chorus. But at its best, Mandy has a rock ’n’ roll magnetism that’s hard to shake—a whisper of wit behind its thudding solos. “You should go in knowing that your odds ain’t that good and you will probably die,” a friend warns Red as he sets out for revenge. Cage doesn’t miss a beat: “Don’t be negative.” recommended

And I see that Alice Longstroth (listed as Alice Langstrath) arrived in New Orleans in April 1842 on the Hope with her parents and five siblings. It appears they stopped in St. Louis and didn't continue on to Nauvoo until 1844. The Longstroths were baptized at the River Ribble, where George D. Watt won the foot race that allowed him the privilege of being the first man baptized in England. [Slightly surprised that no one has popped out of the woodwork to challenge me, as shifting the date of Joseph's command to these three apostles to December 1841 supports a timeline that has made certain people very upset...]

So, given my presumption that Brigham's proposal to Martha Brotherton and Heber's intent to marry the Pitkin sisters occurred before the conversation with Joseph Smith, I was wondering why Willard Richards was part of this group. I think Willard may have intended to *unite with Alice Longstroth before learning of the correct doctrine from Joseph.* However Alice Longstroth went on to marry Moses Whitaker, an English convert who arrived in New Orleans on the Sidney two days after the Tyrian arrived in New Orleans. Levi Richards was the leader of that company. When Willard married plural wives, he arranged to marry Alice's two sisters, though the family indicates he did not functionally (sexually) become their husband until after he was sealed to them in 1846. The interesting thing is that Willard's journal has a Dec 1845 entry talking about how he and Alice had "mutually acknowledge[d] each other husband and wife, in a covenant not to be broken in time or Eternity." Alice and Willard could not be sealed if Alice was married to Moses Whitaker, a Seventy. But Alice did not choose to be sealed to Moses Whitaker. In 1848 Willard brought Alice and Moses to Salt Lake in a company he led. Moses died in 1852. In 1853 Alice married George D. Watt (of Pitman shorthand fame), apparently marrying Watt for time and being sealed to Moses Whitaker for eternity. Willard Richards died in January 1854, and likely discussed the New and Everlasting Covenant with Alice and possibly encouraged Alice to be sealed to Moses Whitaker for eternity, despite their December 1845 promise. * Edited 9/12/2018

          FEMA Simulated A Cat 4 Hurricane Striking East Coast Just Months Before Florence      Cache   Translate Page      

Earlier this year, government disaster planners simulated a Category 4 hurricane strike alarmingly similar to Hurricane Florence unfolding on a dangerously vulnerable stretch of the US East Coast. 

A fictional "Hurricane Cora" was modeled to charge up the Chesapeake Bay and strike Washington, D.C., created by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Argonne National Laboratory.


Simulated Cone graphical forecast for Hurricane Cora, used for the 2018 National Level Exercise. (This is NOT an actual hurricane, but is used for testing our nation’s preparedness for hurricane impacts.)

Associated Press (AP) said the computer models showed "catastrophic damage" from the hurricane, which some experts warn that Hurricane Florence could produce a disaster comparable to 2005's Hurricane Katrina in the Carolinas and surrounding states.

The fictional hurricane knocked out the power grid for most gas stations in the Mid-Atlantic region, severely damaged a nuclear power plant, and blocked critical shipping channels in the Chesapeake Bay, according to a Department of Energy simulation manual.

"What they were trying to do was create a worst-case scenario, but it's a very realistic scenario," said Joshua Behr, a research professor at Virginia's Old Dominion University who is involved in disaster modeling and simulations.

Realistic indeed, it just so happens that months after the government's Cora simulation, Hurricane Florence, a Category 4 storm is expected to hit the same general area -- roughly 200 miles south of the modeled area in Wilmington, N.C.

On Wednesday, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said the storm was 575 miles southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina. It had maximum sustained winds of 130 mph and could make landfall in the Carolinas by the end of the week.

AP also said the fictional storm made landfall in the densely populated Hampton Roads region, causing a massive 15-foot storm surge and more than 9 inches of rain to the coastal area within the first six hours of landfall. Models showed main routes -- used for evacuations as well as for first responders -- in and around the coastal regions of Virginia, were severely damaged and allowed a delayed response of search and rescue teams.

Cora slammed +100 mph sustained winds into three nuclear power stations. One was critically damaged. Models also showed thirty-three major power substations were at risk for storm surge and inland flooding.

Ed Vallee, a meteorologist at Vallee Wx Consulting, warned that "Florence will approach the Carolina coast Thursday night into Friday with winds in excess of 100 mph along with flooding rains. This system will approach the Brunswick Nuclear Plant as well as the Duke-Sutton Steam Plant."

He tweeted several weather models Tuesday morning that forecasts rainfall amounts 15-40" range in some regions along the coast.

One of those models is the ECMWF Total Precipitation, which shows the most torrential rain could be situated around the two nuclear power plants in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Aside from Florence, the fictional storm damaged critical roads, bridges, and debris blocked the Newport News Channel and other waterways.

Coast Guard Station Cape Charles lost power, and Coast Guard Station Chincoteague was severely damaged by high winds. Models also showed cataphoric damage at Reagan National Airport in Washington.

The make-believe hurricane knocked out hundreds of cell towers, and power was lost to 135 data centers in Virginia and another 60 in Maryland.

The scenario projected hurricane-force winds for a 50-mile radius from the storm's center, damaging residential neighborhoods and critical infrastructure.

AP notes that the Cora hurricane simulation makes no mention of deaths and injuries but instead focuses on infrastructure.

Another remarkable similarity between the Cora simulation and Florence's path: already saturated ground on that part of the Mid-Atlantic coast.

"What I fear is that saturation, combined with a storm that kind of stalls out," said Behr, who has studied vulnerable populations in the paths of Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf Coast and in the Hampton Roads region.

If parts of the East Coast, Mid-Atlantic, and or the South East are deluged with water, it could be a Katrina 2.0, Behr said.

"I believe that those patterns are also going to manifest in Hampton Roads if and when a large storm hits," he said. "The vulnerability of our populations are quite similar to New Orleans. Displacement, pain, suffering, property loss. All those things are going to play out in a fashion that has parallels to how Katrina played out."

AP warns that Hampton Roads, a coastal region inhabited by 1.7 million people in cities such as Norfolk, Virginia, and Virginia Beach, could experince difficulties in evacuations.

"I've heard people say Virginia Beach is the world's largest cul-de-sac in the sense that there are not a lot of ways to evacuate," said Michelle Covi, an assistant professor of practice with Old Dominion University and Virginia Sea Grant, a science group that works with other universities in the region on coastal issues.

"You can't go north because of the Chesapeake Bay," she said. "You can't really go south, and in this case you wouldn't want to because the storm is that way. You generally want to go west, but again there are lots of water bodies."

It seems as government disaster planners at FEMA have been preparing for "the big one," maybe it will be Florence?

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

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

Evacuated prisoners in sit on a sunken highway during Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, Louisiana, August 31, 2005. 

© 2005 Reuters

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

1. Hurricane Katrina

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

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

2. Hurricane Harvey

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

3. Hurricane Maria

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

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

4. Hurricane Sandy

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

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

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

5. Hurricane Ike

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

          Mandy Review: Blood, Guts, and Rock ’n’ Roll      Cache   Translate Page      
(Also featuring Nicolas Cage with a battleaxe.) by Erik Henriksen

Before all the blood starts spurting and gurgling, Mandy offers an epigraph, its letters bloody red:

When I die
Bury me deep
Lay two speakers at my feet
Wrap some headphones
Around my head
And rock and roll me
When I’m dead.

The words go uncredited (they are, turns out, the last words of murderer and kidnapper Douglas Roberts, who was executed in 2005), but as they appear, over fiddly electric guitar and fuzzy synth, they set Mandy’s tone. This is a movie that’s kind of sad, kind of lyrical, and kind of rock ’n’ roll; its first half is an earnest, artsy character study, and its second is a greasy, sordid revenge flick. It also features one of Nicolas Cage’s most bugfuck crazy performances, so: Mandy isn’t for everyone. But for those it is for? It’s a hell of a thing.

Viewers eager for the rock, though, will have to wait: The first half of Panos Cosmatos’ surreal saga is more self-indulgent prog-rock than blistering metal. A glittery title card—“The Shadow Mountains, 1983 A.D.”—and a spacey, slow hour scored by Jóhann Jóhannsson and King Crimson introduce us to logger Red (Cage) and his artist wife, Mandy (Andrea Riseborough), who live deep in the woods, eat in front of the TV, make dumb jokes, and talk in bed. Red wears a beard and Mandy wears Sabbath and Crüe T-shirts. Every shot looks like a black-light poster, and it’s only a matter of time until something terrible happens.


One scene, in which our hero lurches and grunts in a bathroom as he chugs vodka in tighty-whities and tube socks, is pure... Nicolas-Caginess in the best possible way.


Because this is a revenge movie, that terrible thing happens to Mandy: Abducted by a drugged-out, “crazy evil” cult of Jesus freaks, Mandy spurns the advances of their preening leader, Jeremiah (Linus Roache), and is brutally slaughtered before Red’s eyes. Of course she is: While Mandy is mostly unpredictable, it still dumbly clings to the misogynistic tropes of the revenge genre.

At which point Mandy pivots: Cage’s eyes widen, his voice rises, and, after sliding on some aviators and forging a gleaming battle axe, he grabs a crossbow named “the Reaper” and starts hacking his way through Jesus freaks. The results are gruesome, silly, and satisfying: blood spurts and gurgles, there’s a tiger named Lizzie, and a sword fight in which the swords are chainsaws.

Cage’s craziest and best performances are in movies that—like him—just fucking commit: Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Adaptation, Leaving Las Vegas, Raising Arizona. (And... Face/Off? Sure! Face/Off.) Add Mandy to the list, and relish the sight of Cage, face slathered in blood and cocaine, channeling rage, glee, and bone-deep mourning. One scene, in which our hero lurches and grunts in a bathroom as he chugs vodka in tighty-whities and tube socks, is pure... Nicolas-Caginess in the best possible way.

True, Mandy never quite gels; it’s smeared somewhere between super-specialized art house and broad VHS schlock. It’s alternately creepy, sordid, and goofy; even within scenes, it changes its tempo and switches the chorus. But at its best, Mandy has a rock ’n’ roll magnetism that’s hard to shake—a whisper of wit behind its thudding solos. “You should go in knowing that your odds ain’t that good and you will probably die,” a friend warns Red as he sets out for revenge. Cage doesn’t miss a beat: “Don’t be negative.”

          Cleveland Public Theatre Presents YA MAMA!      Cache   Translate Page      

Cleveland Public Theatre (CPT) presents Ya Mama! The production is onstage from October 11 - 27, 2018, in CPT's Gordon Square Theatre.

Ya Mama! is the autobiographical story of a young Afro-Creole girl losing a mother, gaining a stepmother, and becoming a mother-all while being an artist. Set in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans, we journey from the schoolyard to the delivery room, from the edge of sanity to pure joy, from devastation to hope. First developed and produced in 2011, Ya Mama! is a CPT classic.

Ya Mama! was developed in CPT's Big Box series-continuing on to the 2011 New York International Fringe Festival and then returning to Cleveland for a full production in CPT's 2011/2012 season. This past June, the piece was remounted to tour to the Hollywood Fringe Festival. This fall, CPT welcomes the beloved production back onto the Gordon Square Theatre stage for three weeks of performances.

According to CPT's Executive Artistic Director, Raymond Bobgan: "Nina Domingue is a Cleveland treasure and we're so lucky to have her as part of our community onstage and off. Nina has this uncanny ability to carry the audience along with her through different characters. She makes us laugh and then, WHAM, suddenly everything flips-there is a broken heart, a tragedy, an opening. You can't help but identify with her characters and her story of struggle and triumph."

Andrew Rothkin of nytheatre.com described the show this way: "Ya Mama! is a richly woven tapestry of love, loss, strength, and spirituality, beautifully written and exquisitely performed by the phenomenally gifted Nina Domingue."

Nina Domingue, playwright and performer, says, "Ya Mama! is a small thread of who I am in the tapestry of my life, and it encompasses all of the joy I have for living, the gratefulness I have for my journey, and it does not deny the pain that helped me get there."

Ya Mama! is performed and was written by Nina Domingue* and directed by Nathan Henry. The creative production team includes Raymond Bobgan - Producer; Beth Wood - Line Producer; Tyree Franklin - Stage Manager.

*Actor appears courtesy of Actors' Equity Association, the Union of Professional Actors and Stage Managers in the United States.

Ya Mama! previews October 11. Press Night is Friday, October 12 and the show runs through October 27. Performances are Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Monday nights at 7:30pm in CPT's Gordon Square Theatre, located at 6415 Detroit Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44102, in the heart of the Gordon Square Arts District.

Tickets are $15-25. Students/Seniors receive $5 off on Friday and Saturday nights. Preview, Thursdays, and Mondays are $15.

PURCHASE TICKETS at www.cptonline.org or call the CPT Box Office at 216.631.2727 ext. 501. Group discounts are available-call the Box Office to inquire. (Reserve early! - CPT never charges any ticket fees, ever.)

The Gordon Square Theatre is ADA compliant featuring a ramped entrance and an all gender, wheelchair accessible restroom.

Every Friday is Free Beer Friday at CPT. Mingle with the artists after the show and discuss the performance in a lively, social atmosphere-your drinks are on CPT.

Nina Domingue is a well-respected and sought-after actress and playwright. Ya Mama! was developed in the CPT Big Box series before debuting in the NY International Fringe Festival in 2011, and then returning to CPT's 2011/2012 season. Nina received a Bachelor of Arts in Theater Arts from Dillard University of New Orleans and a Master of Fine Arts in Acting from West Virginia University. Nina was described by nytheatre.com critic Andrew Rothkin this way: "Domingue, an eloquent artist of more colors than Crayola, and who has the refined skill of someone twice her age." The Plain Dealer described her performances as "Must-see theatre!" Credits include Medea at 6:00 (Ensemble Theatre), Project1Voice 2015: Home by Samm-Art Williams (starring James Pickens, Jr. - Grey's Anatomy), Project1Voice 2014: for colored girls... (lady in orange, Dale Shields), It Hasn't Always Been This Way by Ntozake Shange (Off-Broadway, Diane McIntyre), Venus (The Venus Hottentot, CPT), Merry Wives of Windsor (Mistress Quickly, Great Lakes Theater Festival), Nickel and Dimed (Multiple Characters, co-production between CPT and GLTF), for colored girls... (lady in red, Karamu House, Terrence Spivey). Solo show credits include NY International Fringe Festival, Ya Mama! (developed in CPT's Big Box series), No Child... (CPT), The Little Mermaid (Cleveland Play House, Pamela DiPasquale), A Jewel of a Tale (commission by Cleveland Play House). Independent film: Bringing Henrietta to Life (Henrietta Lacks), The Passageway (Dr. Collins), A Day of Racism (Sancha). She made her mainstage directorial debut at Karamu 2.0 with the American premiere of The Adventures of the Black Girl in Her Search for God by Lisa Codrington. Awards and honors include: Best Actress in a Play (Cleveland Theatre Collective, lady in red), Memorably Distinctive Performances in a Theatrical Season (Cleveland Theatre Collective, 2004-2005 Season), and The Plain Dealer has said that Nina is "...a young Anna Deavere Smith" and watching her is "like a master class in acting." Nina is a wife and mother of five, her greatest work to date.

Nathan Henry is Line Producer and Director of Marketing and Communications at Karamu House, where he has worked as a multi-disciplined artist for nearly a decade. Credits for Karamu include: director of the critically-acclaimed production of Passing Strange; director and choreographer of the regional premiere of Lee Summers' From My Hometown; director of Dale Orlandersmith's Yellowman in collaboration with NYC's Project1Voice; and associate director of the regional premiere of Tony Kushner and Jeannine Tesori's Caroline, or Change, a co-production with Dobama Theatre.

New Orleans is a city known for its paranormal history—and it’s the place Emma Rose Crane, AKA Mattie Hathaway, has come home to.

This is a chance for her to start over. In New Orleans, she's welcome, and her abilities to see ghosts isn't so freaky.


But the whole thing would be a lot easier if she weren’t faced with a family she barely knows and starting college, all while dealing with the loss of someone she loved.

Can she really escape her past and be semi-normal? Even with her sister Mary and best friend Eric by her side, it's going to be a wild ride once she agrees to help Mary's new friends investigate a "haunted" house.

The house’s new occupants are terrified, and the ghost seems to be attacking their little girl, leaving everyone desperate for answers. Emma isn’t sure what to think when she discovers Dr. Lawrence Olivet was also invited to investigate.

Will her gifts be enough to save the family that is currently being stalked in their own home?  And when some of her own family’s long-kept secrets come to light, will her fresh start be over before it even begins?

          Murder in July by Hambly, Barbara, author.      Cache   Translate Page      
"When British spymaster Sir John Oldmixton offers Benjamin January a hundred dollars to find the murderer of an Englishman whose body has been found floating in the New Basin Canal, Benjamin turns him down immediately. As a free man of colour in New Orleans in the sweltering July of 1839, he knows this is not something he should get mixed up in. But when clues to the dead man's identity link the death to another murder, in another July in January's past, he is reluctantly drawn into the investig

<div class="author-info"><b>Peter R. Thomas Jr., Auburn University</b></div><div class="article-content"><body><page>
<div> The Mooresville Post Office in <a type="nge_article" href="h-3788">Mooresville</a>, <a type="nge_article" href="h-1289">Limestone County</a>, is the oldest operational post office in the state of Alabama. Several of the mailboxes have been owned by the same families since before the American <a type="nge_article" href="h-1429">Civil War</a>, and it continues to serve local residents. </div>
<div> <figure class="right eoa-landscape"><a href="m-8837" target="_blank"><img class="article-figure" src="/images/m-8837.jpg"/></a><figcaption>Mooresville Post Office</figcaption></figure>The town of Mooresville was incorporated in November 1818, predating the state (December 14, 1819) by more than a year. Postal service was established in the area nearly 20 years before the town was incorporated. The original Mooresville post office was located in the Stagecoach Tavern (c. 1821), which is the oldest public wood-frame building in the state. The two-story structure features a covered porch on the front and a brick chimney and external staircase on either end. There are three rooms on the first floor, where the post office was located, and two rooms on the second. Mail may have been handled through the small window on the front. </div>
<div> Historians believe the post office, a small single-story building with an open-gable roof, was constructed in its current location around 1840, based on the type of materials and methods used in the construction. A lack of axe markings on the lumber used in the building suggests that the wood came from a local sawmill, which dates the building after 1840. The handmade bricks used to construct the chimney suggest that the date of construction may have been prior to 1840, however. In addition, the heaviness of the lumber and use of traditional pegged joints, both common traits of earlier structures, suggests that carpenters combined earlier methods of construction with contemporary techniques that emerged after the establishment of the sawmill. The post office boxes are numbered 1 to 48. They, and some furnishings, were transferred from the Stagecoach Tavern during the transition of post offices and are even older than the post office building itself. It is furnished with Windsor chairs and braided rugs that all date to the nineteenth century. </div>
<div> <figure class="left eoa-landscape"><a href="m-8866" target="_blank"><img class="article-figure" src="/images/m-8866.jpg"/></a><figcaption>Brick Church, Mooresville</figcaption></figure>The post office has been important in documenting the history of Mooresville. Research from the 1930s used post office documents to reconstruct the town's early history. That data helped to identify the families, residents, and businesses that existed in the town between 1844 and 1847. It also shed light on postage fees from this period. For example, a fee of six cents ($.06) was charged for mail between <a type="nge_article" href="h-2143">Decatur</a>, <a type="nge_article" href="h-1351">Morgan County</a>, and <a type="nge_article" href="h-2498">Huntsville</a>, <a type="nge_article" href="h-1168">Madison County</a>; <a type="nge_article" href="h-2121">Florence</a>, <a type="nge_article" href="h-1290">Lauderdale County</a>, to <a type="nge_article" href="h-2604">Athens</a>, Limestone County, was ten cents ($.10); and between Mooresville and New Orleans, a fee of 25 cents ($.25) was charged. </div>
<div> The U.S. Postal Service rents the post office building which is owned by the town of Mooresville. Visitors are welcome. The building is located at the corner of Lauderdale and High Streets. It is open Monday through Saturday between 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. The National Register of Historic Places placed the entire town of Mooresville, including the post office, on its registry in 1972 as a historic district. It encompasses 29 acres and includes 14 structures dating from the 1820s to the 1850s.

          A Pair of WWII Bunkers in New Orleans Contains 7 Million Fish      Cache   Translate Page      

Hidden in a bend of the Mississippi River just south of New Orleans, 29 concrete bunkers lie on a grid of dirt and grass roads. Some hold remnants from the past—40-year-old gas masks and biohazard signs still hang on a wall. Most of them have been abandoned for decades. But inside two of those bunkers, 15 million fish eyes stare at the walls through the glass of their jars. This is the Royal D. Suttkus Fish Collection, the largest collection of preserved fish in the world, and almost no one knows it exists.

In the Type Room, Dr. Henry Bart—curator of the collection and director of the Tulane Biodiversity Research Institute (TUBRI, which houses the collection)—shows me the rare fish.

It is a small room, maybe the size of a car, but it is the most important room of the institution because it’s where the holotypes and paratypes are kept. “These are the most important specimens because they bear the names, so if there’s any doubt about what a species is, these are what you consult,” Bart says. Here is the famous pocket shark, a small deep-water marine shark found just a few years ago in the Gulf of Mexico—only the second one known to exist in the world. Here is a harelip sucker collected in 1893. It’s been extinct since that year. The tail fins have eroded off, and I can see its brain. Here is the oldest fish in the collection—a shiny minnow collected in Italy in 1838.

As Bart picks up jars of fish, the species’ names roll off his tongue as if he grew up fluent in Latin. “We keep these specimens here because we’re trying to protect them from fire…We have to keep a lot of protections in place,” he says. We are surrounded by cinder block—a fortified vault in a hurricane-proof, tornado-proof, bomb-proof, and camouflaged mausoleum. In the main room down the hall, rows and rows of sea-green shelves hold over seven million other fish.

article-image

The history of how the collection came to exist in this place is so storied and mysterious that it could only have happened in the Cajun bayou. Over 260 years ago this swampland was the site of a French, American, and Spanish military fort, after which it was thought to be a plantation, and then later a freedman’s village. The bunkers were built during World War II for the Navy to hold artillery for war ships, and then during the Cold War, the CIA used the property as a training facility. Once the Cold War ended, the government no longer had a use for the property, so they leased it to Tulane University for $1. At first, Tulane used several bunkers for medical research and other natural history collections, but now only the fish remain.

The Royal D. Suttkus Fish Collection was founded in 1950 when the legendary ichthyologist Royal D. Suttkus, who had a hand in collecting over five million of the collection’s fish, joined the faculty at Tulane. The collection was originally housed on the university’s main campus, but by 1968, it had outgrown its space and was moved to its current bunker-home in Belle Chasse, Louisiana. Before Suttkus retired from his position as director, he asked Bart, who had volunteered for him as a student, to apply for the director job. Bart is one of only around four or five hundred ichthyologists working in the country.

article-image

Today the collection has approximately 204,291 lots (or containers of the same species that were collected together) holding between seven and eight million specimens, mostly from the freshwaters of the Gulf South. In the ichthyology world, the Suttkus Collection is a vital resource. Each year, Bart and his team mail hundreds of preserved fish to ichthyologists around the world, and scientists travel to New Orleans to research the larger fish in person. These researchers are examining relationships between species and discovering new ones, learning new information about the deepest parts of the ocean, and studying the effects of global warming. “Essentially, we are the holders of history,” explains Justin Mann, the collections manager.

In the bunker that holds the large fish, Mann warns me to stand back before opening a tank the size of a truck bed. The evaporated alcohol from the isopropyl that preserves the fish collects at the top of the tank, and the smell is nearly suffocating at first. Creatures far larger than human bodies lie on top of one another inside. Mann puts one rubber glove on before reaching in, but he doesn't bother with the other. “You’re touching that with your bare hands,” I acknowledge. He laughs. In the tank are the largest fish in the collection. Mann holds up each of them to show me—the gar, the sturgeon, the paddlefish. At around eight feet long, the bramble shark is the largest. This one was only the third ever found in the Gulf of Mexico. He grabs a large rubbery piece from the top of the fish pile and adds, “Oh, here’s the liver,” and goes on to explain how they use their livers as buoyancy control and to process salt.

article-image

Though collections like this outnumber public museums, they’ve recently started disappearing. Last year, the keepers of the fish collection at the University of Louisiana at Monroe were told they had just 48 hours to find a new location for their fish because their space was needed to renovate the running track. Tulane and a handful of other universities collectively offered to take in their collection, and overnight, the Suttkus Collection acquired 85,000 new specimens. Ironically, ULM had already absorbed another university’s collection when it closed. Around the country, natural history collections are worried this might happen to them next. “This has been happening for a while, but recently, as funding has dropped significantly, a lot more collections like ours are being consolidated or redistributed, or just left to rot,” Mann says.

The recent development of genetic research has played a role in the loss of funding. Because genetics research requires only a tissue sample, some people feel that collections that preserve the entire fish are no longer useful. And while there are great benefits to using genetic research, Mann does not view it as a replacement for specimen collections. “If you are describing a species and you’re focusing so much on genetic material that you ignore archive material, you’re only getting half the picture,” he says. But government agencies are more likely to fund the newest technology, and the amount they have to distribute is rapidly decreasing. The current administration’s unwillingness to invest in science is a major cause of concern for the entire science community, and especially for collection like this one. “For a long time, it was just us justifying our existence to these agencies,” Mann says. “Now these agencies are having to justify our existence to the administration as a whole, and that’s scary for us…The funding has shrunk, and the competition has gotten a lot harder.”

article-image

The Suttkus Collection is lucky in that they receive support from Tulane, but the budgetary constraints of the university, in addition to the decrease in government funding, has proven to be a major challenge. One of Bart’s major goals is to raise enough money to create an endowed position with a reliable source of funding, but finding donors has been difficult since few people have heard of the collection. Because the property was not designed to accommodate visitors, they do not have the capacity to open to the public, and so they remain an unintentional secret outside of the ichthyology bubble.

But Mann is trying to change that. He’s recently started to do outreach projects to spread the word that the collection exists, that it’s important, and that it needs the public’s support. The situation is even more precarious because of the property. The land itself is an unofficial wildlife preserve and a trove of archeological treasures and history waiting to be discovered.

Jonathan Walczak is an investigative journalist and archivist hired by TUBRI to collect and piece together notes of Royal D. Suttkus that were damaged or lost during Hurricane Katrina. “I don’t even know how to describe in a quick way what I do, so I just jokingly tell people that I work in a swamp bunker with 8 million dead fish. Which is accurate.” he says. The property is what fascinates him most.

article-image

“It’s a very peaceful place,” he says. “I’m probably 15-20 minutes from my house right now, but also in the middle of nowhere.”

The property spans 360 acres with three dirt roads (Alligator, Armadillo, and Wild Boar). Of the 29 bunkers, two house the Suttkus Collection, and one has the new specimens still being sorted from the ULM collection. The rest of the bunkers are sources of mystery and rumor.

Walczak shows me where the old fort once stood (though it’s been covered by the Mississippi River and is no longer visible), and the area of the property where old maps show a freedman’s village. After studying old documents, he discovered that the CIA secretly used the property during the early 1960s for Cuban dissidents training in underwater demolition (among other things) for the Bay of Pigs invasion, information that’s still not well-documented. Every piece of the property is rich with history waiting to be uncovered. Coyote, deer, hogs, river otters, and alligator roam freely.

article-image

“On one hand, we want as many people to know about it as possible because it’s a special place,” Walczak says. “On the other, you worry about the pristine-ness of it being tainted. But if no one knows about us, we’re going to sink into oblivion.” There’s recently been talk of Tulane selling the property, and it’s unclear whether the Suttkus Collection would remain where it is, or what would happen to the property if the collection were moved to a new home. “I worry, especially as empty, vacant land becomes increasingly scarce and the coast gets closer. I worry that this land might one day be developed and I really hope that’s not the case,” Walczak says. “People come and go as funding comes and goes. And I hope that when I’m gone, that somebody cares about the history.”

There’s a storm coming. Charcoal clouds prowl up the river from the Gulf. Wild boar and water moccasins linger nearby. But for now, the fish lie safe in their indestructible lair, holding secrets still undiscovered about our oceans, as they have for decades. The elements can’t hurt them here—it’s humans that are dangerous.

          How Ms. Venable Hinted at a Male Coven in American Horror Story: Apocalypse      Cache   Translate Page      

Now that the American Horror Story premiere delivered the apocalypse promised in the trailer, we're at the edge of our seats, wondering what might happen next. Our wild cast of characters are already going crazy after 18 months in Outpost Three, and the powers in place are quite mysterious and menacing. We'll have to save Ms. Mead (Kathy Bates) for another time, because right now all eyes are on the shelter's obvious big bad dragon lady: Ms. Venable. Sure, Wilhemina is, in the simplest terms, a masochist, but there's one thing she said in the premiere that makes us think she may be something else: a witch.

Yeah, that's right. I'm getting the feeling that Ms. Venable used to run a coven . . . and her subjects were all male witches. When Timothy and Emily first arrive at Outpost Three, she tells them a pretty particular fact about the space. "For many years," she says, "it was an exclusive boys' school." Does that sound familiar to anyone? It sounds an awful lot like Miss Robichaux's Academy For Exceptional Young Ladies, which is the front for the witch school in New Orleans run by Cordelia Foxx. There's more evidence to suggest as much: I mean, this is a Coven crossover season, and this creepy, underground structure would certainly be a good space to foster the powers of young boys.

But wait! There's more! If you look back at the 30-second preview - it was only meant to get us excited about the full-length trailer - there's a flash of a moment when Cordelia, Myrtle, and Zoe seem to be entering the outpost. But if you look behind them, you'll see a group of men all dressed identically . . . in rather colonial garb. Could these be the boys of the coven? Could Michael Langdon, who we know is the Antichrist and son of Tate and Vivien, be one of them? It all certainly seems possible, doesn't it?

All we have right now are a few stray pieces of evidence. But rest assured, all will come to light in the weeks that lie ahead.

NFL Commissioner, Saints discuss criminal justice issues

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has toured New Orleans' criminal justice system as part of a daylong symposium organized by a nonprofit that 12 players formed.

News outlets report Goodell went to the Orleans Public Defenders office on Tuesday with New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson and linebacker Demario Davis. The teammates are among those who formed the Players Coalition, which organized the meeting to talk with local groups involved in criminal justice reform.

Goodell and the group spoke with defense attorneys and formerly incarcerated people about topics including bail fees and court costs defendants pay to help support the local system. They also watched a judge set bail for people making their first court appearances.

Watson says Goodell's presence speaks volumes about his willingness to support the players' effort.

          Desert Drinking      Cache   Translate Page      
A trip to New Mexico offers fresh spirits.

I am writing this week's Spirits column from a balcony overlooking Old Town Albuquerque, New Mexico. This is my first "real" vacation in two years (trips to the Gulf Coast to see my mom, to New Orleans or Nashville, or that 24 hours I spent in Harlem last spring hardly count), and m-a-a-a-n am I enjoying it. Within an hour of my arrival at the fabulously laidback Hotel Chaco, I was seated at Level 5, the rooftop restaurant, where I sipped on a cocktail while watching the sun set over the Sandia Mountains.

My first drink was Hotel Chaco's variation on the gin and tonic, called the Botanist. Zippy and peppy, their recipe included pepper, thyme, preserved lemon, and house-made kombucha. I drank it with zest.

With dinner, I drank the beautiful pink-hued Hummingbird, a sweet, fruity Patron tequila-based drink that included lime, agave, damiana, and hibiscus. I had to google damiana to find out what I was drinking — turns out that it's a native woody shrub that was used to make many patent medicines in the 19th century, including Pemberton's French Wine Coca, a drugstore brew concocted by the creator of Coca-Cola. Mexican distillers still use leaves from the bush to make a traditional liqueur, while herbalists make tinctures and teas that are seen as either relaxants or stimulants. Let's just say that I felt both energized and chilled out afterward.

At breakfast the next day, I splurged on a Bloody Mary, which, as it turned out, was worth every penny of the $10 I paid for it. The drink was as spicy as I expected, being in the Southwest, but it came with an added bonus: In addition to the requisite celery stalk and olive garnish, two strips of perfectly fried smoked bacon lay crossed atop the glass. I don't know how the locals do it, but I dipped my bacon into the vodka-tomato juice mix and ate it, then slurped down the drink.

Later, I strolled through the aforementioned Old Town, the historic center of Albuquerque, founded in 1706. I wound up stopping for lunch at Backstreet Grill, which had seven beers I've never heard of on tap. I wish I could say I tried all of them, but I'm just one person — and I already felt a little lightheaded from the altitude.

I did sample the Bosque Lager, a Pilsner-style beer with 4.8 percent ABV that was brewed just a few miles from my lunch spot, at a brewery on San Mateo Boulevard. I also drank a glass of a slightly lighter beer, the 4.3 percent ABV Body Czech Bohemian Pilsner from Boxing Bear, another craft brewery located in Albuquerque.

Unfortunately, I had to bypass samples from other local brewers like the Boese Brothers, La Cumbre, and Steel Bender. Back at my hotel, I did some online searching, and it turns out that Albuquerque has a robust beer scene, with 23 breweries active within the city limits. Marble Brewery, big contenders in the World Beer Cup, are on my short list to try before I fly home to Memphis.

Next, I'm heading to the desert, where I'm spending two days far from any luxuries, including bars, refrigerators, corkscrews, and taps. When I return to civilization, I plan to hit up Garduño's at Old Town, a 40-year-old restaurant and cantina located inside the venerable Hotel Albuquerque. Monday night is margarita night at Garduño's, and they have no less than 16 varieties on the menu. The restaurant served as a location for a pivotal scene in season five of Breaking Bad — it's where Walter and Skyler White met up with Hank Shrader and his wife (and Skyler's sister) Marie after Shrader discovered that Walter White was indeed the meth-making Heisenberg. Things didn't go well for anyone sitting at that table, but then again, Walt didn't stick around for a margarita.

I'll try just one, then head to Left Turn Distilling, the distillery behind La Luz Vodka, Rojo Piñon Rum, Brothers Old Tom Gin, and NM Blue Corn Whiskey, a twist on corn whiskey that is made with New Mexican water and locally sourced and ground blue corn. While Left Turn also has a happy hour on Mondays, I'll buy my drinks for the road — or for the plane flight home. Local spirits, after all, make the best souvenirs.

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.

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.

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.

          New York Fashion Week Spring 2019: NaturallyCurly Texture on the Runway Kicks off NYFW      Cache   Translate Page      
More than 900 influencers, media and VIPs filled NYC’s Iconic Gotham Hall to celebrate NaturallyCurly’s signature event Texture on the Runway on Thursday, September 6th during New York’s Spring 2019 Fashion Week to celebrate the beauty of curls and coils. Retailer Sally Beauty returned as the retail sponsor for the innovative runway show that puts textured hair front and center. This year’s event was also a celebration of NaturallyCurly’s 20th anniversary. The media company has been at the center of a two-decade revolution that transformed the way the world views curls, coils and waves. Since 1998, NaturallyCurly has been the pioneer in empowering, educating and inspiring its community of consumers, influencers, and beauty enthusiasts. By focusing on texture from Day 1, NaturallyCurly has attracted an inclusive community of all ages and ethnicities, men and women, from wavies to super coilies. Hosted by NaturallyCurly co-founder Michelle Breyer, and recording artist and breakout star of Love & Hip Hop Miami Amara La Negra, seven top texture brands showcased their distinctive take on texture down the runway. This year’s runway sponsors included Camille Rose Naturals, Cantu, Carol’s Daughter, Creme of Nature, Mielle Organics, SheaMoisture and The Mane Choice featuring their own unique textured hair inspiration and debuting looks that truly celebrate coils, curls and waves as well as fashion. “At Sally Beauty, we believe the best hair type is your hair type, and we are committed to providing a diverse assortment of products for our customers,” said Linda Voracek, Group Vice President of Merchandising for Sally Beauty. “Texture on the Runway is unique from other events in that it allows hair to dictate fashion and highlights the diversity of hair textures and styles in a bold way.” Since NaturallyCurly launched Texture on the Runway in 2012 at City Winery in New York City, it has become one of the most anticipated events in the natural hair community. The innovative runway show arose out of NaturallyCurly co-founder Michelle Breyer’s frustration that Fashion Week lacked inclusivity. “As I covered Fashion Week, I was disappointed to see that the models on the runway didn’t reflect the diversity of our community,’ Breyer says. “We decided to create an event that celebrated texture and inclusion, and we wanted to do it during Fashion Week.” Texture on the Runway puts curls, coils and waves front and center, letting the hair inspire the fashion rather than the other way around. Brands are encouraged to take their interpretations of texture down the runway, from intricate protective styles like braids and twists, to cascading curls or big luscious ‘fros. In recent years, the brands’ creativity has expanded well beyond the hair and fashion. This year, Cantu’s presentation featured a true New Orleans second line band. SheaMoisture integrated a reggae soul performance by Meta and the Cornerstones and Carol’s Daughter energized the crowd with an electrifying dance group, The Red Project NYC. “At Sally Beauty we are committed to helping our consumers find and celebrate their natural beauty,” states Karonda Cook, Director of Merchandising, Sally Beauty. “We know that beauty is not a one size fits all approach and believe in beauty for all. We were thrilled to be this year’s retail sponsor for Texture on the Runway to help tell our story. It was also a great opportunity to interact with brand partners and influencers to make sure they understand the importance of our brand and what our customers mean to us.“ Through 15-minute presentations, hair sponsors showcased their interpretation of modern, textured hair. This year’s event included: Camille Rose Naturals THEME: Carefully sourced ingredients meet exotic recipes. The diverse regions that create the new Around the World collection’s ingredient pallet was the inspiration backdrop to the Camille Rose presentation. The stage was transformed into a dramatic oasis of rich cultural fused interpretations using wardrobe, color design, music and the centerpiece of hair! The audience was invited to take a trip with us to the Amazonian Rainforest, South Pacific and the Middle East via a sensory overload presentation; which borrowed cues from this new exotic collection of conditioning treatments and oils. The Around the World collection launches at Sally Beauty during Texture on the Runway 2018! Cantu THEME The Faces of Cantu: Head Over Heels for Texture. We have an extremely dedicated and hardworking team, each of us doing what we love for consumers we love. Our theme showcased that love and dedication to the textured hair movement, while putting a spotlight on some of our most dedicated team members from sales, marketing, and even one of our interns. Our stylist, Maria Antoinette is an industry icon for her creative, yet somehow achievable hairstyles for naturalistas. Our textile designer and artist, Melissa A. Mitchell of Abeille Creations, along with Tailor Soila Konchellah, decorated our team with wearable art worthy of an exhibit. Last but not least, our Stylist and Creative Director, Morgan A. Wilder is the talent behind pulling everything together for a cohesive, runway-ready show that we’re proud to bring to New York Fashion Week with Texture on the Runway. Carol’s Daughter THEME: Carol’s Daughter founder Lisa Price always enjoyed spending time with her family. When she was younger, it was time spent bonding with her mother and now, she enjoys that same special bonding with her own children. For Texture on the Runway, we recreated these special moments shared between, mother, and child by using models that are actual family. Lead Stylists Derick Monroe and Gabrielle Corney using the Pracaxi Nectar style and care line to create styles that celebrated each models uniqueness as well as their family bond. Creme of Nature THEME: At Creme of Nature we are shifting the culture and redefining the future of universal style and texture…with a bold Afrofuturism hijacking of the runway. The “Afro Punk Urban Queen” is fearless in her diverse expression of edgy street fashion, multicultural hairstyling and glow up beauty – which all reflect the glamorous ornamentation of her #BlackGirlMagic that extends to every corner of the globe. This supernatural goddess embodies a generation of boss ladies setting trends all over the world. The Afro Punk Urban Queen has grinded her way from the bottom to the top and from the streets to C-Suites, while empowering her beloved brothers and sisters on the journey. Putting it all together, Creme of Nature brought to life the Afro Punk Urban Queen ethos through beautiful clothing and fabric from De La Cruz New York, cutting- edge hairstyles lead by celebrity hairstylist Pekela Riley, Afro Beat Dancers courtesy of Nedra The Dancer, music by MPerfect Marketing Solutions and visuals by Craig Brimm to showcase our dream. Mielle Organics THEME: Mielle Organics hit the runway with an edgy presentation that brought the brand to life. Hairstyles and looks were crafted and inspired by the woman warriors of Wakanda. Mielle Organics’ lead stylist Key Glover delivered edgy and dramatic looks. Hair was styled using the Pomegranate and Honey collection, including the three newest additions to the line: Moisturizing & Detangling Shampoo, Moisturizing & Detangling Conditioner and Curl Refreshing Spray. SheaMoisture: THEME: “Celebrating Our Shine,” showcased the beauty and versatility of textured hair styles created with SheaMoisture’s award-winning legacy collection, Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Hair Care. The collection provides treatment and styling solutions with natural, certified organic and fair trade ingredients for all textured types and looks. The runway presentation featured stunning styles that demonstrate the many dimensions of texture, designed with as much fashion-forward inspiration as any haute couture collection. Models were dressed in looks that brought the warmth and glow of a tropical day. Davina Bennett, Miss Jamaica and SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Brand Ambassador, headlined the show as the first woman to rock her afro in all its splendor at the Miss Universe pageant, being crowned 2nd Runner-Up. Davina led this charge with celebrity stylist & SheaMoisture Textured Hair Ambassador, Diane C. Bailey, to celebrate our shine and how texture is at the forefront of redefining the hair care beauty standard. The Mane Choice THEME: Texture on the Runway has given so many multicultural brands in this space a platform to showcase textured hair beautifully during Fashion Week. Our goal through this partnership is to continue those efforts by showcasing how our brand is taking strides to empower and offer solutions to all textures. Supporting sponsors included: As I Am, Aunt Jackie’s, ORS Curls Unleashed, Maybelline, Reshma Beauty, Smooth ‘N Shine and Tone Skincare.

Experience the thrill of the Mardi Gras carnival as seen only in New Orleans, the fascinating waterfront in enchanting Florida and the pathos of the homeless in Greater St. Louis in this fascinating video. The origins of Mardi Gras or "Fat Tuesday" can be traced to medieval Europe. Long before Mardi Gras was introduction to America, ancient Romans were celebrating Lupercalia, a circus like festival not entirely unlike the Mardi Gras we are familiar with today. When Rome embraced Christianity, Christian leaders thought it better to retain some of the pagan festivals instead of abolishing them completely. Thus, Mardi Gras was slated as a carnival time that preceded the penance of Lent, and justifiably labeled as a Christian festival.

It was the French explorer Iberville who brought Mardi Gras to America in 1699. Thus, Mardi Gras came to New Orleans through its French heritage in the same year. Throughout the years, the city of New Orleans added to the celebration by establishing krewes (organizations) which host parades and balls. The Carnival quickly became an exciting holiday for both children and adults.

The Patriots have signed free agent receiver Eric Decker in hopes of adding depth to their receiving corps. The eight-year NFL veteran signed with New England on Friday after working out for the team this week. The Patriots are looking to give quarterback Tom Brady more options following Julian Edelman’s four-game suspension for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancers Willie Snead IV Jersey (http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/willie-snead-iv-jersey-cheap) , the free agency departure of Danny Amendola and trade of Brandin Cooks. Decker, the husband of singer Jessie James, joins his fourth NFL team. A third-round pick in the 2010 draft by Denver, the 31-year-old spent four seasons with the Broncos, three with the Jets and last season with the Titans. He caught 54 passes for 563 yards and touchdown for Tennessee in 2017. He’s appeared in 111 games in his career with 83 starts, amassing 5,816 receiving yards and 53 touchdowns. — It’s one thing to be able to go to a casino or a racetrack and bet on sporting events. It’s quite another to do it from home Lyle Alzado Jersey (http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/lyle-alzado-jersey-cheap) , or anywhere else you happen to be. In West Virginia, “home or anywhere else you happen to be” most likely will be an option, sooner than later. PFT has learned that The Greenbrier Resort and FanDuel have reached an agreement that will result in FanDuel providing retail, online, and mobile sports wagering services within West Virginia. “We are honored to be chosen to provide sports wagering services at The Greenbrier, an iconic resort in the U.S.,” FanDuel CEO Matt King said in a press release issued to PFT. “As we work towards building out a top sports betting product for the upcoming NFL season John Kuhn Jersey (http://www.saintscheapstore.com/john-kuhn-jersey-cheap) , we look forward to bringing West Virginia residents, sports fans, and visitors to The Greenbrier the best interactive sports experience on the market.” Final details will depend upon the regulations promulgated by the West Virginia Lottery Commission. It’s currently believed that, through FanDuel, people physically located in West Virginia (residents and non-resident alike) will be able to place bets via the FanDuel app. Betting also will be available at The Greenbrier’s on-site casino, along with the state’s four racetrack casinos. The Greenbrier and FanDuel plan to have the betting service up and running by the fall, with the precise date hinging on the finalization of the West Virginia Lottery Commission’s regulations. The Houston Texans currently conduct training camp at The Greenbrier. Previously Y.A. Tittle Jersey (http://www.49erscheapstore.com/y.a.-tittle-jersey-cheap) , the New Orleans Saints held training camp there. So, by all appearances, West Virginia will be poised for the coming football season (and possibly beyond) to attract citizens of its various nearby states (Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Kentucky, Virginia Everson Griffen Jersey (http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/everson-griffen-jersey-cheap) , and Tennessee) to cross the border, fire up their cell phone devices, access the FanDuel app, and wager money on the NFL and other sports.

The NFL will hold the annual supplemental draft next week and the Dolphins have spent some time talking to a couple of the prospects that will be available. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the team interviewed former Virginia Tech cornerback Adonis Alexander recently. The Dolphins were also at Alexander’s pro day workout. Alexander is a big cornerback at 6’3″ and is seen as a likely mid to late-round pick after a pair of suspensions in college preceded the academic issues that led to his ultimate departure from the program. The Dolphins also had a conversation with former Mississippi State defensive back Brandon Bryant Walt Aikens Jersey (http://www.dolphinscheapstore.com/walt-aikens-jersey-cheap) , but did not attend his pro day workout. They were in the audience for former Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal’s pro day along with the other 31 teams in the league. Beal is viewed as the likely top choice among this year’s supplemental draft crop. Dez Bryant is looking for “a creative graphic designer and a creative sketch artist.” The receiver also seeks an NFL job, though he doesn’t seem concerned about his continued unemployment. Bryant posted a job listing on Instagram, though he didn’t say why. A user responded by asking the former Cowboys star if he shouldn’t instead spend his time looking for a new team. Bryant wrote: “The last problem I have is finding a team. I’m in a world you will never understand.” The three-time Pro Bowler turned down the Ravens’ multi-year offer and has had no other teams express interest publicly. A report earlier this month said Bryant has received phone calls but was waiting for the “for the perfect fit Devonta Freeman Jersey (http://www.falconscheapstore.com/devonta-freeman-jersey-cheap) , a winning organization and a team willing to do a one-year, prove-it deal.” Former Cowboys tight end Jason Witten has speculated that Green Bay could be a fit for Bryant, though Aaron Rodgers essentially shot down that idea. Earlier this week Craig Robertson Jersey (http://www.saintscheapstore.com/craig-robertson-jersey-cheap) , Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott threw out New Orleans as a possible landing spot for Bryant. Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report said he continues to hear San Francisco could have interest in Bryant, but adding “that’s far from certain.” The Cowboys released Bryant 68 days ago, and it appears he will remain unemployed for at least a while longer. Bryant Adarius Glanton Jersey (http://www.buccaneerscheapstore.com/adarius-glanton-jersey-cheap) , though, doesn’t think that’s a problem.

          $uicideboy$ Suffer Through Their Debut. So Will You.      Cache   Translate Page      


None


There's a big chance that one look at $uicideboy$ makes you roll your eyes. In press photos, they're usually covering their face with middle fingers, but you can always see $krim's bleached blonde dreads flowing from his white, tattooed face. The other guy, Ruby da Cherry, looks like the custodian at your local high school who chilled a bit too hard with the kids but pulled it off because he had the weed plug. Their music videos usually see them smoking blunts or falling off skateboards or performing to insanely lit warehouses, imagery that is all doused in a pinch of horrorcore. The aesthetic is acute. It works.

They're definitely too edgy for their own good, but that's the whole appeal. In fact, I do not doubt their authenticity for a second. When they showed up on Adam22's No Jumper podcast in 2015, $krim explained just how high the stakes were: "if $uicideboy$ didn't happen, I'd blow my fucking head off." You don't look like this, make 43 projects in four years, and write all of your songs about the grimmest, ugliest forms of depression without meaning every word. No wonder it resonates with millions.

It doesn't take long on their official debut album before $uicideboy$ are rapping "It feels like I'm cursed / Hopefully soon I'll return to the dirt", and you know exactly what you're getting into. It's easy to try and laugh it off until you remember that Lil Peep was singing shit like "Imma die young / Imma get killed" for years, and people treated him like an emo poster boy self-parody until he actually did die. Comparisons to Peep, another white, tattooed young man who made music that was unapologetically sad, are inevitable, but where Peep adopted the sing-song cadences of Good Charlotte, $uicideboy$ sample Three 6 Mafia and don't touch Auto-Tune. People will rightfully cite their genre-fluidity as a strength, but at their core, $uicideboy$ are a rap group. Even if their aesthetic is headline-grabbing, genuine, and fully-formed, they rap on all their songs, so rapping is what they need to be judged for. Unfortunately, every time they rap on I Want to Die in New Orleans, the album falls apart a little bit more. Every time they sing, it goes to complete shit. $uicideboy$ have the charisma to spearhead a movement, but their voices are their own worst enemies.

It's not like they are doomed from inception. Ruby has a penchant for putting together momentous flows, even though his voice has the tuneless quality of someone awkwardly singing along to a song they are listening to through headphones with no concept of how they actually sound. $krim is unquestionably the stronger of the two, with a low, guttural croak that commands every track. The best songs on here see them going back and forth, bouncing off each other, and emphasizing $krim's performances. Ruby is hit-or-miss throughout the project; at his best, he is the melodic vehicle of darkness at the center of these tracks, but when he uses his voice in the wrong ways, this album can be borderline unlistenable. "122 Days" sees him attempting to harmonize over a chorus that desperately grasps for the anthemic, but the mixing is so flat, and his voice is so off-pitch that it's almost cringe-worthy. $krim eventually comes in and reclaims the song, but at this point, even he sounds tired, and this is only five songs in.

The lyrics are exactly what we've come to expect; a depraved, unflinching gaze at self-loathing, decay, and suicidal tendencies. They sound numb to it at this point, so it makes sense that the listening experience is as grey and lifeless as the themes. However, that doesn't make it particularly fun to listen to. The aesthetic shock value doesn't bleed onto the music at all, and most of this album is a drag, zeroing in on the least interesting sonic tendencies of cloud-rap and horrorcore.

None


None


If the music was as over-the-top and innovative as it acts like it is, it could get away with its messy and ugly moments, but when this album tests the listener, it isn't because it pushes sonic boundaries and gets too real. It's because its repetitive, cliché-ridden lyrics and terrible vocal performances are genuinely hard to listen to, let alone find value in. You can cram a song with violent imagery and the most harrowing cries for help, but it won't transcend into something meaningful unless it is backed up by personality and sounds half decent. No matter how much I trust that $uicideboy$ have good reason to be rapping about "meeting the reaper" and how they "bite the head off a bat like Ozzy", I Want to Die in New Orleans sounds like them checking off a list of empty horrorcore clichés and suffocating in the process.

When $uicideboy$ play to their strengths and talk their typical talk, like on "Phantom Menace" or "Carrolton", the bangers are functional if the beat is good. At the very best, this album is still insipid and dry, but it proceeds with purpose and can hold its own. However, it falls off a cliff on songs where they attempt to do anything more. There are moments on "Long Gone" and "Meet Mr. NICEGUY" where layers of awful singing pile on top of each other and, dear god, there is really no place for it. Maybe it would work if it was passionate or dynamic, but neither $krim nor Ruby should ever try to sing, let alone without autotune. The passages where they do are so fucking painful. They sound like they are being forced to sing. They sound like they have never heard good singing before. I'm sorry, no amount of production could save how bad they sound, but there is not even any production trying to. It's all there for you to hear, and it's horrendous.

There would be redemption in this if it didn't happen so often, or if the highs were higher, or if the album was cohesive. However, no number of unexplained news clips about New Orleans can stamp this album with geographic significance, and none of the dark Soundcloud bangers can justify this album's existence. $uicideboy$ misses sting a lot more than their hits, and what they lack in substance and talent is so apparent that they probably should have never tried to make a full album. If they haven't already won you over, there's no reason this will. But they probably don't care and why should they? As Ruby puts it, "'I don't give a fuck' is my fucking epithet." They're doing something right, and that's all that matters. It's just definitely not singing. Or making albums.

          U.S. southeast braces for “days and days” of floods from Hurricane Florence – More than 1 million people ordered to evacuate – “It’s an extremely dangerous, life-threatening, historic hurricane”      Cache   Translate Page      

By Anna Driver
11 September 2018

HOLDEN BEACH, N.C. (Reuters) – Powerful Hurricane Florence grew larger on Tuesday and is expected to bring days of rain, deadly flooding, and power outages lasting weeks after it slams into the U.S. Southeast coast later this week.

Winds and massive waves will pound coastal North and South Carolina when Florence makes landfall on Friday, and its rains will take a heavy toll for miles inland, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) warned.

With winds currently at 140 miles per hour (225 km per hour), the storm was a Category 4 on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale and expected to get bigger and stronger, the NHC said.

“This storm is a monster,” North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper told a Tuesday news conference about the most powerful storm to approach the Carolinas in nearly three decades.

“It’s an extremely dangerous, life-threatening, historic hurricane … The forecast shows Florence stalling over North Carolina, bringing days and days of rain.”

Cooper and his counterparts in neighboring South Carolina and Virginia ordered about 1 million people to evacuate coastal homes, including along the Outer Banks barrier islands. To speed evacuations, officials in South Carolina reversed the flow of traffic on some highways so that all major roads led away from the coast.

Communities in Florence’s path could be without electricity for weeks, said Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long. […]

In addition to flooding the coast with wind-driven storm surges of seawater as high as 13 feet (4 m), Florence could drop 15 to 25 inches (38 to 64 cm) of rain, with up to 35 inches (89 cm) in some spots, forecasters said. [more]

U.S. southeast braces for 'days and days' of floods from Florence

11 September 2018

NEW ORLEANS (The Guardian) – More than a million people living along the coastlines of Virginia and the Carolinas have been ordered to evacuate their homes on Tuesday, as parts of America’s mid-Atlantic coast brace for what could be the most powerful storm to ever hit the region.

Hurricane Florence is expected to bring potentially catastrophic winds, flooding and storm surge. Forecasters predict it will make landfall late on Thursday.

Currently rated as a category 4 storm – the second most powerful on the national weather service’s (NWS) classification system – Florence would be the first storm in recorded history to make landfall at that magnitude so far north if it remains on its most likely track.

In its latest advisory on Tuesday morning, the US national hurricane center (NHC) said the storm is close to category 5 in strength, and had slightly increased in speed as it headed toward the east coast. It is expected to be an extremely dangerous major hurricane ahead of its potential landfall.

“The bottom line is that there is high confidence that Florence will be a large and extremely dangerous hurricane, regardless of its exact intensity,” the hurricane center said. […]

The NWS is predicting “life-threatening” storm surge and inland freshwater flooding, with some models predicting upwards of 2ft of rainfall. With winds of up to 150mph forecast, Florence will likely fell tree limbs and trigger power outages.

Some forecasters are concerned that the storm appears likely to slow dramatically at about the time of landfall, like 2017’s Hurricane Harvey, which stalled out Houston, dropping huge amounts of rain over several days. That storm brought $125bn in damage last summer, mostly in Texas.

Florence stands a significant chance of joining 2017’s Harvey and Irma as just the third storm to make landfall on the US mainland at category 4 strength (or higher) since 2005. When storms of that magnitude hit the lower 48 states, they usually travel through the warmer waters of the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico and rarely make landfall so far north up the eastern Atlantic coast. The last storm to hit the Carolinas as a category 4 was Hurricane Hugo nearly 30 years ago in 1989. [more]

          Xaviera Simmons: Sundown Comes to David Castillo Gallery      Cache   Translate Page      

David Castillo Gallery presents Sundown, Xaviera Simmons' fifth solo exhibition with the gallery. The show features all new text paintings, photography, and sculpture.

Many communities in the United States remain "sundown towns," where Black Americans are not welcome after dark. The works assembled in Sundown draw from the multitude of threads which form the foundations of the contemporary American narrative - slavery, colonial America, the Antebellum South, the Jim Crow era, Black reconstruction, Black migration, and the Civil Rights era.

The exhibition explores these legacies and the ways in which systemic prejudices have rendered major aspects of the American narrative virtually invisible; the effects of which reverberate into the present day.

In this rigorously researched body of work, Simmons engages with historical imagery, layering archival black-and-white images of American life across scenes that she as shifting characters inhabits.

?Sundown is to be considered in a chronological manner. The exhibition begins with Simmons' signature text-based paintings, drawing from and abstracting language found in the diaries and observations of Christopher Columbus' fateful encounter with the landscape now labeled America.

Simmons' text-based paintings render Columbus' initial observations into poetic visual gestures where text acting as image renders the scenes Columbus encountered with sensuality and beauty.

Simmons' text strips away and molds aspects of Columbus's diary language to reveal textual images that are idyllic yet loaded with an inherent historical conflict.

?Using floral backdrops and patterns Simmons' large-scale photographs seeks to both exclaim history as well as contemporize the narrative; to hold the narrative and to add to our complex contemporary practice of prioritizing image as narrator.

The furniture based sculptural works in Sundown speak to the advantages that have been lost specifically to the lineage of the descendants of American slavery; to the anonymous Black American craftsmen and women who could have historically designed and built these items.

These sculptural works, according to Simmons, are a hypothesis rendered in luscious furs, velvets, and leathers.

The works are tasked with the question, what would our contemporary landscape look like had Black Americans been able to create continued generational stability within America without the consistent threat of disenfranchisement?

What would our language, art history, architecture and overall American visual, sculptural and domestic landscapes look like had Black Americans had an opportunity as a group to collectively contemplate and capitalize from such things as craft and creativity with free will and freedom from threat over the span of the country's lifetime or at least since President Lincoln's "Emancipation Proclamation"?

The sculptural and photographic works in this exhibition seek to re-engage the historical narrative to recover some of the possibilities of this vision.

Xaviera Simmons is included in numerous upcoming exhibitions and projects including "The Restless Earth" curated by Massimiliano Gioni, at the Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C. (2019); Miami-Dade County Art in Public Places Commission (2018-2019), among many others. Recent solo exhibitions include "Convene" at SculptureCenter, New York; "Overlay" at Radcliffe Institute at Harvard University; "The Gold Miner's Mission to Dwell on the Tide Line" at The Museum of Modern Art- The Modern Window, New York; and "CODED" at The Kitchen, New York.

          Szuper frissítést kap a HomePod      Cache   Translate Page      

Egy szoftverfrissítés érkezik hamarosan az Apple hangfalaira, aminek segítségével új képességeket nyer a cucc. Az első nagyon hasznos.

apple-homepod-2up-white-09122018_inline_jpg_large.jpg

Indíthatsz hívásokat

Nagyon hiányzott az első naptól, mostantól a hangfal valóban egy kiterjesztése a telefonodnak. Ha jön hívás, automatikusan továbbítja a hangfalra, ha hívnál valakit, a kontaktok közül kérhetsz nevet. “Hey Siri, who just called?” - erre is választ tud adni a kicsike.

Keresés dalszöveg alapján

Ha a “play the song that goes like” vagy hasonló kezdettel kérsz zenét, a szöveg alapján kitalálja a HomePod, mit szeretnél hallgatni. Nanananananana New Orleans és más hunglish megoldások valószínűleg nem lesznek jók.

Több időzítő

Eddig csak egyetlen visszaszámlálót állíthattál be szóban a hangfallal, most többet is. Jól jöhet, amikor főzöl, és egymás után több ételt is felraksz főni vagy sülni. Esetleg egy teaházban egymás után tíz kancsót áztatsz, és mindegyiknél más időben kell kivenni a füveket.

Find My iPhone

Meg tudod pingelni a lakásban elhagyott telefont, ami kérésre hangot ad ki.

Siri Shortcuts

A beállított rutnjaidat lefuttathatod már szóban is, őszintén szólva ez egyáltalán nem meglepetés. Az lett volna, ha nem jelenik meg. Az iOS 12 szeptember 17-én, vagyis mindössze 4 nap múlva érkezik, valószínű ez a frissítés is akkor jön majd.

This is the hurricane that isn't gonna happen. The government has been doing weather experiments here ever since I can remember. I think since that real bad one in new orleans, they figured something out. I would not suprise me if the government knocks this hurricane down from a cat 5 to a cat 1 or 2. They do not want people to cash in on FEMA as they have done in the past.

          Travel Thursday: Charleston, S.C. - Home to Southern Charm, Comfort, & Hospitality.      Cache   Translate Page      

This is a repost of our trip last year to Charleston.  As Hurricane Florence lands in the Carolinas, we are thinking of you all. Stay safe and see you soon.  You are a resilient community and have faced hurricanes before and they recovery from them has become part of your history.


“Why did you come to Charleston, South Carolina?” I asked a nice couple having a drink at the rooftop deck of the Belmond. They stated that they had traveled down to Charleston from Maryland, because they had never been and they heard some great things about the city.

Why do we visit a place? Why do we choose to spend our time and money going somewhere we've never been?  One of my main reasons for going to Charleston was because my siblings had been born there and spent a couple of years of their early years while my father was stationed there during the Viet Nam War.  Besides my mother saying “you’re gonna love it” over and over again, others have stated it is one of the great cities of our nation and a true gem.  It was time for me to find out. 


THE SIGHTS –


- CARRIAGE TOUR - During our stay, we were able to squeeze in a city tour. I’ve been to New Orleans over 15 times, but never taken a horse carriage tour.  Jumping at the fact that the carriage tours are one of the more popular ways to see Charleston, we could not wait to see which sector of the city we would see. The structures around Charleston are quintessential southern architecture.  From the churches, meeting houses, government buildings, and the hospitality doors, my camera was very happy.  The guides for the Old South Carriage CO. dressed in Confederate garb, a red sash around the driver's waist. Our guide entertained us with both historical facts and humor. They guarantee satisfaction and we were satisfied.

CARRIAGE TOUR WITH OLD SOUTH CARRIAGE CO. | @oldsouthchs  12 Anson Street, Charleston
(843) 723-9712, oldsouthcarriage.com


 - HAUNTED JAIL TOUR -

Bulldog Tours runs many tours in the city.  One we were excited to attend was the Haunted Jail Tour. As seen on Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, and The Travel Channel, we went on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Old City Jail, which housed some of Charleston’s most infamous criminals, 19th-century pirates, and Civil War prisoners. The Old City Jail was in operation from 1802 until 1939, and most of the building’s original structures — like the cells and warden’s quarters — remain intact. If you want to learn the history behind the haunted, take our new Charleston Jail History Tour. Our tour guide was Eric Lavender.  I am sure the guides are all good, but Eric was perfection. I even had a little paranormal experience that I will remember forever.


 

- MIDDLETON PLACE - Besides the history downtown, we were fortunate to have some time to tour Middleton Place. This National Historic Landmark is home to America’s oldest landscaped gardens and a lively stableyard with free-grazing sheep, cashmere goats, Belgian draft horses, guinea hogs, peacocks and majestic water buffalo. We did not stay for all of the demonstrations on making pottery, weaving, blacksmithing, candle-dipping, and open fire cooking methods. I was astonished to find out that this land was used for growing rice, a crop that made Charleston the wealthiest colonial city during the eighteenth century. I’ve been to several plantations in Louisiana and they all had a different “take” on the history of the land, the people that lived there, and the people that worked or were enslaved there. Take a tour like we did or do a self-guided tour of the gardens and property. Catch up on some of the history in a video below.

Downtown … check.  Out in the countryside … check.  Where else should we see Charleston?  How about from the water.


- COASTAL EXPEDITIONS -

We were lucky enough to secure a boat tour from Coastal Expeditions. While heading out into the bay, it was evident that shrimping was very popular and important to the local economy. Our captain and fellow guide Henry Brandt III and T.J. Chavis were great on the journey.  Their enthusiasm and knowledge were great to have as we learned about the history, present, and future of the Charleston and the water that surrounds it. As a history major, teacher, and lover, it was a chilling moment to see Fort Sumter along with other historical landmarks, ships, etc.

 

Since 1992, the basic mission of Coastal Expeditions has been to take people to beautiful places to experience meaningful things. Being that Charleston is a water town, the best ways to get to these spots are by kayak, canoe or powerboat.  Our guides delight in showing you dolphins feeding in a saltwater creek or the Holy City skyline at sunset.  And they can't wait to take you to the Boneyard on Bulls Island at daybreak or share Charleston history with you as you paddle by historic rice fields.  We offer something for everyone- kayak and paddleboard rentals, daily tours, blackwater adventures, camping and more. 

As we toured around where the two rivers met, the Ashley and Cooper, we were flanked by dolphins. Henry even pointed out that we were seeing them mating.  Of course we would be the group that would see that.  I would definitely book another excursion with Henry and T.J. and Coastal Expeditions.

 


THE NIGHT LIFE –


 

- DUDLEY'S - We had some time to play around and the place we decided to spend our fun money was at Dudley’s.  The full name of the bar is Dudley’s on Ann – Charleston’s “Everybody” Bar.  All the staff was great From Daniel Brinker , to bartender Chris, to DJ Matterhorn, to the other bartenders I saw hustling in this small and lively place, BRAVO. It was a great spot to spend a couple nights in.  The nights consisted of drag shows full of great talent, performers all around,  fun groups, yes, bachelorette parties, but they didn’t hang all night, and a mixed crowd of all members of society.  Tuxes with bowties next to shirtless boys next to silver-spooned preppies next to the shy silent types. Pick a person, they were there and that made the nights very enjoyable. There seems to always be a line to get into Dudley’s for it’s one business in from King Street and the straight bar nightlife. I did want to check that out, but we were too busy enjoying ourselves at Dudley’s.  


THE FOOD –


People rave about many things when it comes to Charleston and food is right around the top of the list. We had our opportunities to taste a great deal of what Chucktown has to offer.

 

- HOMINY GRILL - Our first wonderful instance of mouth happiness took place at the Hominy Grill. James Beard Awarding winning chef Robert Stehling takes this single home with charming courtyard and envelops it with offerings like a Southern-style cocktail, shrimp and grits, or the infamous Charleston Nasty Biscuit. This last option called my name and reminded me of the Biscuit Bitch in Seattle, Washington.  When something calls you, you need to go with it and I’m so glad I did. It was great to fill me up as we all ogled over the men in scrubs enjoying their meals in the courtyard.  That’s another thing that Charleston has going for it. There’s a good amount of young professionals, new growth, and great options for every age bracket, but it is nice to see a vibrance of post collegial peeps enjoying the city.


- MAGNOLIAS - This seems to be a must-eat-at locale when visiting.  Honestly, every place we dined at was impressive and satisfying. Nestled on East Bay Street, Magnolia's combines old world charm with contemporary excitement. Chefs Kelly Franz and Don Drake are recognized as pioneers in the creative use of the Lowcountry's bounty. What is Lowcountry? It’s a term I feel is used instead of local and fresh.  I’ve had fried green tomatoes before, but these had to be the best that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and eating. The home made chips were very crisp and the blue cheese was powerful, just how it should be.


 

- LEWIS BARBECUE - When in the south, anywhere in the south, you need to try the barbecue. Lewis Barbecue was the site of our meat coma of an experience.  They opened their doors and their smokers to us and we were very appreciative.  They didn’t have corn bread for us, but we had the corn pudding, which we all wanted to bathe in. The service was the type we have grown to experience in Charleston, from our first beer served to us at the Club Level at Belmond Place to the airport, the amazing southern hospitality lived up to his name. We were all very appreciative of the great food, good little gift corner, and the tour of the smoking room.  All the barbecue was perfect, but my favorite offerings from Lewis Barbecue, which surprised me, were the sausage and the turkey.

Named “The Brisket Evangelist” by Garden & Gun magazine, Lewis welds his own custom-designed smokers to create expertly smoked beef brisket, pork spareribs and beef ribs.

 


- THE DARLING OYSTER BAR - And then there was brunch before we flew home after our wonderful long weekend.  No good gay goes without brunch. Executive Chef Joe DiMaio, former chef at the Old Village Post House and Stars Rooftop & Grill Room, opened The Darling Oyster Bar, a space featuring a 14- seat bar, a vast cocktail program, and a seafood inspired menu including fried, raw, and baked options.

Even if you are not an oyster fan like myself, there are plenty of options.  Maybe you could even start off brunch with the massive “The Captain” which contains vodka, hose mix, celery, pickled shrimp, hushpuppy, a king crab leg, and a lobster claw.  Some in our party had two, glushes!

LGBT HIGHLIGHTS -


- AFFA - I recommend making friends while in the city for it’s easily done.  Meeting up with some of the LGBT citizens in Charleston, we were invited to the home of Doug Warner, Director of Media Relations, Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau. 

 

The evening was to honor Linda Ketner, Founder of Alliance For Full Acceptance (AFFA). It was interesting to learn about AFFA for its history highlights the Charleston LGBT community and how it has changed and grown over the past 25 years.

 


- LGBT TOURS - You can also check out this resource - New map highlights gay history in Charleston.  One of our new friends took a walking tour by Bulldog tours that was focusing on LGBT history.  It's good to see that there are options to learn about Charleston's history and it's homosexual side.

My last post on Charleston (Travel Thursday: Our First Visit to Charleston, SC.), highlighted where we stayed, Belmond Place, but this post hopefully filled in what else you can do during your stay in one of the best cities in the United States.

          NFL News: Saints Drew Brees On Browns Rookie Baker Mayfield: ‘He Can Be A Lot Better Than Me’      Cache   Translate Page      

nfl new orleans saints news cleveland browns baker mayfield drew brees

Drew Brees is going to go down as one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of the NFL and is easily a future Hall of Famer. On Sunday, he will lead the New Orleans Saints onto the field against the Cleveland Browns who are being led by a rookie with not a single professional start under him. Still, Brees believes that Baker Mayfield has the ability to be even better than him one day, and that’s certainly the highest of praise.

During the 2018 NFL regular season-opening weekend, the Saints unexpectedly lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a high scoring affair. The Cleveland Browns didn’t suffer another opening season loss, but they didn’t secure a win either as they finished in a tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

          Former PSU star Chris Godwin expected to 'really make a jump' in second year with Tampa Bay Buccaneers      Cache   Translate Page      

Former Penn State wide receiver Chris Godwin earned the praise of his coach and quarterback with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Wednesday. Watch video

PHILADELPHIA -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn't need Chris Godwin to be a star right away.

The Bucs drafted the former Penn State star wide receiver in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. The franchise already had former top-10 pick Mike Evans and free-agent signing DeSean Jackson ahead of him. So the Tampa Bay coaching staff guided Godwin into things in the NFL.

Godwin, though, made it hard for the Bucs to keep him off the field. He closed his rookie season strong, and so far, it's carried over into a young 2018. Next up for Godwin and a suddenly prolific Tampa Bay offense is the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

"He did a lot of the dirty work for us," Tampa Bay coach Dirk Koetter said in a teleconference with Philadelphia media Wednesday. "He didn't get a whole bunch of opportunities down the field. But when guys start showing up in practice, making plays, even the dumbest coaches like me can start to figure, hey, maybe we ought to throw this guy the ball once in a while in a real game."

How Penn State WR Chris Godwin's Delaware roots launched him to the NFL's doorstep

Godwin closed the 2017 season with 10 catches for 209 yards and a touchdown in the Bucs' final two games. He finished his first NFL season with 34 catches for 525 yards and one touchdown. In Tampa Bay's 48-40 shootout win over the New Orleans Saints, Godwin had three catches for 41 yards and a toe-tapping touchdown.

Godwin has an impressive blend of size and speed. He's listed at 6-foot-1, 209 pounds. He ran a 4.42-second 40-yard dash at the NFL combine in 2017. During his final season at Penn State, he averaged 16.6 yards per catch and scored 11 touchdowns, and he posted nine catches for 187 yards and two touchdowns in the Nittany Lions' wild Rose Bowl loss to USC.

The early returns for Godwin are impressive, and he occupies his own niche in an offense that features Jackson, the diminutive speedster, and Evans, the big-bodied playmaker, out wide. Plus, there's a pair of play-making tight ends in Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard. Godwin fits right in.

"I think that's all part of the progression," Koetter said. "When Chris came out of Penn State, Chris had a -- his last year at Penn State, he played pretty darn well there, too. I think it kind of blew everybody away when he went to the combine and ran that fast of a time, and then when he came here as a rookie, we didn't necessarily need him to be a starter right off the bat, so we could kind of ease him in."

Is Trace McSorley an NFL quarterback? Who cares? He'll go down as most beloved player in Penn State history

Godwin made an impression on the veterans in a locker room that is trying to turn around a moribund franchise. The Bucs haven't won a playoff game since Super Bowl XXXVII in 2003, and they haven't made the playoffs since 2007. They have just five winning seasons in the 15 years since the Super Bowl.

And while Godwin was only a rookie, he did some things that were noticed by his teammates.

"He was a really impressive rookie last year, just in terms of professionalism and the way that he played all year long, the way that he approached each week," quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said. "I felt like some of the results at the end of the year were well-deserved with the way that he played and the things that he did."

The Bucs could need Godwin to step into a larger role sooner rather than later. Jackson didn't practice Wednesday because of a concussion, and the team's unofficial depth chart lists one of the team's starting receivers as Jackson "or" Godwin.

Either way, Godwin's Tampa Bay teammates will know what they're getting when he's on the field. And the expectation is he continues to take large strides forward.

"He is a true professional in the way he goes about his business, and we're looking for him to really make a jump from last year to this year because he's going to be a special player," Fitzpatrick said. "He's worked his butt off to get to where he is."

          Catelynn Lowell & Tyler Baltierra: The History of Teen Mom's Most Enduring Couple      Cache   Translate Page      

Nine years ago, the odds weren't exactly in Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra's favor. 

Catelynn, who described her mom April as "pretty unpredictable," had lived in 13 different houses since she was born in 1992. Tyler's dad, Butch, had been in and out of prison. Oh, and April and Butch, both single when they met through their kids, had ended up marrying each other, making Catelynn and Tyler step siblings.

But as the teens pointed out, they had met first. (And Tyler lived with his mother.)

The high school sweethearts in Algonac, Mich., had been dating for three years, since the seventh grade, when 16-year-old Catelynn found out she was pregnant.

That news would seemingly lead to "cue the hysteria," but when 16 and Pregnant premiered on MTV in 2009, the show—which introduced the world to six pregnant teens that first season—first featured Catelynn at 16 weeks along and already talking adoption.

Teen Mom Status Check: Which Couples Are Still Together?

She knew she was having a girl, but, as she pointed out to her friends, "I've talked about keeping it, but there's not really a lot of good things about keeping it. Like, there is, but there isn't."

What has to be one of the hardest decisions to make in life, in a nutshell—because sometimes kids, with the benefit of not yet having too much life experience, are more adept at boiling a subject down to its essence without even trying than most adults.

Frankly, Catelynn found the idea of giving her baby up for adoption scary, but the prospect of parenting even scarier. 

Catelynn's story always stood out from the rest of the 16 and Pregnant, and then the Teen Mom, pack because she and Tyler were the only couple from all of the franchise's installments to go the adoption route. And they continue to stand out as the only original couple from the earliest days of the surprise hit series who are still together to this day. (Mackenzie and Josh McKee from Teen Mom 3 married in 2012 and also remain together.)

They celebrated 13 years together this summer, and have now been married for three years. They are also now parents to daughter NovaLee Reign, born in January 2015, and—after weathering a miscarriage earlier this year—are now expecting another child together.

Each only 26 years old, they've still got a long way to go, but they've been through more than most couples their age, from the shocking news of Catelynn's first pregnancy to having to stay strong in the face of their parents' objection to their decision to adopt, to dealing with that guilt trip and the inevitable emotional aftermath of their decision once their daughter was adopted, to Catelynn's battle with depression.

Teen Mom Stars: Then and Now

"I want my daughter to have a chance at life," a then 17-year-old Tyler, his still-boyish frame swimming in baggy hip-hop-inspired clothes, told his dad when Butch fiercely objected to the idea of adoption. "I just don't want her to be raised the way that she's going to be raised."

To Catelynn, as they continued to talk it out, Tyler said, "I think keeping the baby would totally ruin us...I don't think our lives are very stable to raise a child."

"I don't care if anybody's there to back us up," he added, when Catelynn expressed hope that their family would support their choice. "There's no one else's opinion that matters to me, especially my dad."

They didn't really know anything about adoption, yet, but once they set on that course, the couple started doing their research—including just how involved they would be allowed to be in their daughter's life down the road, or if they'd even be able to see pictures.

It would depend on the agreement with the other family, of course. It was touching to see Tyler and Catelynn, just kids themselves, project their hopes on the people who would end up raising their baby. Tyler wanted the guy to have a college degree. Catelynn preferred a stay-at-home mom.

Brandon and Teresa Davis, who stood out to them right away, ended up being the right fit for Carolyn Elizabeth, the baby girl Catelynn gave birth to on May 18, 2009, and has since always referred to as Carly.

Before Catelynn was induced, Tyler wrote a letter to their child, explaining their decision and ensuring her that her birth father would always love her.

"The thought of what kind of dad I wanted to be, and what you deserve in life, just didn't mix," he wrote. "I think about you every day, you are everything to me. I don't want you to ever, ever think I didn't want you."

When the first season of Teen Mom premiered in December 2009, Catelynn was the only teen of the group who was not dealing with the challenges of taking care of a baby, but rather coping with the decision to give her baby up. 

Brandon and Teresa were that probably fairly unusually couple who agreed to give Catelynn regular updates on Carly. She and Tyler would celebrate Carly's birthday (from afar) and had yearly visits. But the initial understanding between the families has caused its fair share of drama over the years. Brandon and Teresa, who later adopted a baby boy as well, eventually started to pull back from the arrangement, first not wanting Carly to appear on Teen Mom anymore as the child was getting older, and then telling Catelynn in 2016 that they didn't want her even talking about the adoption anymore on camera.

All of which transpired on camera, of course. "My relationship with you comes before my relationship with MTV, period," Catelynn was seen telling producers. And when she told Tyler over the phone, he offered a sweeping assessment of the situation. "We should've never done an open adoption," he lamented. "We should've stuck with the closed and we should've never signed up to be on TV."

But the ties that bind remain.

In 2016 Cate told E! News that their relationship with Brandon and Teresa remained strong, they were still visiting Carly once a year and she got to text with her and see picture all the time.

Carly made NovaLee a Valentine's Day card last year, which Catelynn proudly showed off on Instagram. She naturally became the resident voice on Teen Mom for the pros and cons of adoption and the forever-feelings that come with being a birth mom and then not an active parent.

But she was never in it alone. Tyler was always there for her, and continues to be there for her, though obviously their relationship would never qualify as having been easy—for a number of reasons, their tender ages being only one.

Tyler's own guilt consumed him at first and, with Catelynn also struggling, there was major tension. Their first attempt at living together with Tyler's mom didn't work out, and Catelynn ended up moving back in with her family. And the adoption continues to haunt them in the form of their parents, with April picking a fight with her daughter even when they were shopping for prom dresses.

The couple graduated from high school in 2011 and Catelynn enrolled at Baker College to major in social work. Tyler proposed in 2012 and they bought a house in Michigan together, but then he up and went to New Orleans, where he was auditioning for commercials and trying to become an actor. They sometimes brought their issues to Twitter, engaging in heated exchanges that left fans wondering what their relationship status was.

By Thanksgiving of that year he was back home with Catelynn and their two dogs.

"We're just a normal couple. We're not the perfect princess story," Tyler explained to In Touch. "We get in arguments and we say things that we regret. We apologize and move on."

They had originally planned to get married in 2013, but they ultimately determined, with the help of couples counseling, that they weren't ready for that next step. But in 2014, Catelynn became pregnant again. This time, the couple knew they were going to become full-time parents.

Just weeks before they welcomed daughter NovaLee in January 2015, Tyler surprised his fiancee with a sparkly new engagement ring

"She's the best thing that has ever happened to me," Baltierra wrote on Instagram a few days before Christmas. "She's everything I want that I never knew I needed. She's the most selfless, kind hearted woman that I'm lucky enough to call mine."

Also in 2014, the couple penned a book together, the aptly titled Conquering Chaos, which came out in March 2015. The couple have also started a baby clothing line, Tierra Reign.

How Teen Mom's Catelynn Lowell Continues to Keep Her Mental Health a Priority

They ended up tying the knot on Aug. 22, 2015, at Castle Farms in Charlevoix, Mich., in front of family and friends including fellow Teen Mom stars Amber Portwood and Maci Bookout.

At the same time, however, Catelynn was battling severe postpartum depression and anxiety, and in 2016 she spent a month in treatment in Arizona.

"I decided I needed to get help from talking with Tyler and realizing that I maybe needed something more intense for myself," she told MTV News that September. "For some reason, I just had a light bulb moment where I was like, 'Maybe I need extra help.'"

Her world remained on edge, however, when she returned home and Tyler, who was being unusually nasty to Cate about her weight, a topic of sensitivity for her as seen on Teen Mom, was also depressed. "I'm always thinking negative all the time," he tells Cate. "It's a lot like how I felt when I was a kid. I can just feel it… I know it. All the s--t with my dad again. It's pushing me right over the edge."

When she told him it didn't seem as if he was sad all the time, Tyler said he was, and asked Cate if she was blaming herself for his depression. "Yeah, I am," she said. "I also jump to the worst thing possible."

At the time there were also rumors swirling that Tyler had been cheating on her, which the couple seemingly joked about on social media early last year, with Catelynn tweeting, "Well since it's out in the open @TylerBaltierra did cheat on me. He's busted." To which he added, "Well it goes both ways. Sometimes I booze while she cheats, sometimes she'll booze while I cheat. It just depends on the day of the week."

Inside Farrah Abraham's Controversial, Uniquely Tough Teen Mom Journey

Um, laughter's the best medicine?

Catelynn continued to struggle, however, and in November she checked into treatment for depression again after considering suicide.

"Incredibly proud of my wife...when she thought she had no choices left, she reached out & decided to LIVE today! My life would be desolate without her in it. You are beautiful, strong, worthy, & loved @CatelynnLowell #KeepTalkingMH," Tyler tweeted his support.

She was home by New Year's, and into Tyler's waiting open arms. He had admitted he was having a tough holiday season without her, but he took comfort in being with NovaLee and watching her open presents.

At the same time, he was determined to win another battle that was on his mind. Today he showed off the before-and-after pics after losing 26 pounds in five weeks.

"Eating healthier just feels better & obviously looks better hahaha lol BOOM! #LifestyleChanges #Goals," he wrote.

This year will continue to be about changes and goals for the family, as Catelynn also announced this week that she's going back into treatment, barely three weeks after checking out.

"Well they say third times a charm..." she tweeted Jan. 17. "I'm going back to treatment people for 6 weeks to work on my trauma and getting on different meds. THANK YOU @TylerBaltierra I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!! You are my light!! And nova you are my sunshine #KeepTalkingMH."

When Tyler turned 26 in January, with Catelynn wrote on Instagram, "SCREAMING Happy Birthday to my main boo, my best friend, and my lover!!! 26 has never looked so good! Thank you for all you do for Novalee and I. Your an amazing father and THE best husband! I love you so much!"

Then, with time flying, Novalee started preschool. "#gettingbig," indeed.

In March, Catelynn opened up on Kailyn Lowry and Lindsie Chrisley's Coffee Convos podcast about how she was managing her depression post-treatment, sharing that she seemed to finally be on the right medications and "they seem to be working really well. It all stems from the trauma in my past, so I'm going to have to keep digging deep into that."

And Tyler, who has now lost 40 pounds since embarking on his weight-loss journey, has been there, while also realizing that his own health is essential to making the overall equation work.

On their third wedding anniversary last month, Catelynn posted some photos from their wedding and wrote, "Happy anniversary to my husband! We have had some really rough times and some amazing times. I wouldn't want to go through this life with anyone but you!!!! Happy 3 years and I can't wait for many more! I love you."

Talking to Us Weekly, she called baby No. 3 "our rainbow after the storm. I'm super excited."

Catelynn continued, "It was a huge shock at first. We were not planning it, especially after the miscarriage and how I went downhill with my mental illness...We were going to wait a really long time. We were using protection and everything and still got pregnant. This baby just wanted to be here. It was very unexpected."

While life continues to present its challenges, and they're still only in their mid-20s, Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra are still the ones who've proved all the Teen Mom naysayers and skeptics wrong. If they remain committed to each other, there's no reason to think they can't clear every hurdle that comes their way—as a couple.

Lord knows, their fans are rooting for them.

          Assassin's Creed Odyssey Season Pass Includes Remasters Of Third Game And Liberation      Cache   Translate Page      

Update: Ubisoft has clarified that Liberation will be sold alongside Assassin's Creed III Remastered, not separately. On the subject of changes to Assassin's Creed III, the publisher told us "based on player feedback, a large number of features have been revamped, tweaked or fixed. We’ll share more details leading up to the game’s launch."

The original story is as follows.

Ubisoft has announced their post-launch content plans for Assassin's Creed Odyssey, the upcoming new title in the Assassin's Creed series. In addition to what Ubisoft calls story arcs, the season pass also includes remasters of Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD.

Assassin's Creed III, which released two games after Assassin's Creed II, was supposed to bring the Desmond story arc to a definitive conclusion. It definitely, definitively did that. The game takes place during the American Revolutionary war and puts protagonist Connor at the center of a number of American history legends, such as the midnight ride with Paul Revere. The HD remaster will be updated to 4K with new textures and a new graphics engine. Ubisoft also says that there have been improvements to gameplay mechanics and ergonomics, but it is not quite clear what that means.

Liberation was a Vita-exclusive Assassin's Creed title that took place in New Orleans during the 18th century. The game eventually got ported to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, which is likely what this current gen remaster is based on. Liberation was the first, and until Odyssey, only 3D title in the series to have a female protagonist, Aveline de Grandpré.

Assassin's Creed III will also be available standalone when it releases in March, but Ubisoft did not specifically say whether or not Liberation will be available separate from the season pass.

In terms of Assassin's Creed Odyssey content, two packs called story arcs are included in the pass. Designed as episodic content, the two stories start and release new episodes every six weeks, with the first beginning in December. Titled Legacy of the First Blade, the DLC introduces players to the first hidden blade before any other assassin got their hands on it.

The second story arc, the Fate of Atlantis, takes players to the mythical sunken city to emphasize the more supernatural and fantastical elements that are being touched on in the main game.

Additionally, free post-launch support will come in the form of weekly quests, in-game events, and a return of the non-combative Discovery Tour mode from Assassin's Creed Origins.  Assassin's Creed Odyssey releases for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 5.


          Trump falsely says Democrats inflated Puerto Rico death toll      Cache   Translate Page      

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump on Thursday rejected the official conclusion that nearly 3,000 people died in Puerto Rico from last year’s Hurricane Maria, arguing without evidence that the number was wrong and calling it a plot by Democrats to make him “look as bad as possible.”

As Hurricane Florence approached the Carolinas, the president picked a fresh fight over the administration’s response to the Category 4 storm that smashed into the U.S. territory last September. Trump visited the island in early October to assess the situation amid widespread criticism over the recovery efforts.

“When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000,” Trump tweeted.

He added: “This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico.”

Puerto Rico’s governor last month raised Maria’s official death toll from 64 to 2,975 after an independent study found that the number of people who succumbed in the sweltering aftermath had been severely undercounted. Previous reports from the Puerto Rican government said the number was closer to 1,400.

Trump’s comments drew swift criticism from elected officials and residents of the island, where blackouts remain common, 60,000 homes still have makeshift roofs and 13 percent of municipalities lack stable phone or internet service.

Gov. Ricardo Rossello said in a Facebook post in Spanish, “the victims of Puerto Rico, and the people of Puerto Rico in general, do not deserve to be questioned about their pain.”

Rossello said he left the analysis of the deaths in the hands of experts and accepted their estimate as the official death toll. “I trust that this process was carried out properly,” he said.

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, a Democrat who has sparred with Trump, tweeted that “Trump is so vain he thinks this is about him. NO IT IS NOT.” Rep. Luis Gutierrez, whose parents were Puerto Rican immigrants, spoke on the House floor in front of a printout of the Puerto Rican flag, saying Trump is “delusional” and incapable or “empathy or basic human decency.”

Trump began to focus on Hurricane Florence earlier this week, calling for an Oval Office briefing with the FEMA director to warn about the threat. But as the hurricane began to dominate news coverage, the administration’s efforts after Hurricane Maria came under new scrutiny and began to infuriate Trump, according to two Republican advisers close to the White House who weren’t authorized to speak publicly.

When a reporter asked Trump about Maria in the Oval Office, he swiftly unleashed fact-challenged defense of his response to the hurricane. That led the cable news coverage that evening, further angering the president, according to one of the people.

Trump told confidants that the media was underplaying the challenging circumstances in Puerto Rico and trying to exploit the storm to attack him. He told one adviser that he felt that he media “would stop at nothing” to undermine him and blamed local authorities for their inept response.

The estimate of nearly 3,000 dead in the six months after Maria devastated Puerto Rico and knocked out the entire electrical grid was made by researchers with the Milken Institute School of Public Health at George Washington University. The study said the original estimates were so low because doctors on the island had not been trained to properly classify deaths after a natural disaster.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides doctors with a set of recommendations for counting such deaths as those caused by natural disasters, but the guidelines were almost never followed by Puerto Rican doctors in the chaos after the storm.

Puerto Rico’s government, which is neither Republican nor Democratic, but run by the New Progressive party, a pro-statehood, Puerto Rico-only party, accepted the 2,975 number as a legitimate estimate of the storm’s true toll.

Throughout the week, the president has repeatedly defended his administration’s efforts in Puerto Rico, calling it it an “incredible, unsung success” and renewed his verbal spat with Cruz, the San Juan mayor.

Hurricane Maria hit last year as the Trump administration was feeling positive about the handling of massive hurricanes in Florida and Texas last summer. Trump believed those recovery efforts were a success story he could use to turn the tide of negative press stories after a troubled August, said one official who was not authorized to speak publicly. Then came Maria and devastation in Puerto Rico, where a slow federal response was complicated by logistical concerns and preexisting economic and infrastructure deficiencies on the island territory.

But Trump, that official said, was unwilling to admit even internally that more needed to be done on the island.

Rossello, seized on Trump’s use of the word “successful” and said in a statement at the time: “No relationship between a colony and the federal government can ever be called `successful’ because Puerto Ricans lack certain inalienable rights enjoyed by our fellow Americans in the states.”

Puerto Rico has been a U.S. territory since 1898. Its inhabitants are U.S. citizens, though they are barred from voting in presidential elections and have only one congressional representative with limited voting powers.

Rossello said Maria was “the worst natural disaster in our modern history” and that work remained before the island could move on to other stages of recovery. He also said he was waiting for Trump to respond to a petition to help Puerto Rico complete work on emergency housing restoration programs and debris removal.

Trump, who has struggled to express public empathy at times of national crises, sparked outrage during his post-Maria visit when he feuded with San Juan mayor and passed out paper towels to victims like he was shooting baskets.

After that visit, Trump said Puerto Ricans were fortunate that Maria was not a catastrophe on the scale of Hurricane Katrina, which hit the U.S. Gulf Coast. All told, about 1,800 people died in that 2005 storm.

In his 2010 book “Decision Points,” former President George W. Bush reflected on his mistakes during Hurricane Katrina, a human catastrophe that became a political cloud that hung over the rest of his presidency. He wrote that he should have urged the evacuation of New Orleans sooner, visited sooner and shown more empathy. “My biggest substantive mistake was waiting too long to deploy active-duty troops,” Bush wrote.

Renowned D.C. Chef Opens Ambitious Italian Concept

Washington, D.C., chef Nicholas Stefanelli is opening Officina later this month, a three-story destination for Italian cuisine in the city's massive new waterfront complex, the Wharf. Officina will occupy 14,000 square feet, with a market on the first floor, a trattoria-style restaurant on the second floor and a rooftop bar with an adjacent private-event space. The market will include a wine shop, butcher, bakery, pizzeria, gelato bar and more.

Stefanelli is known for the elegant Italian tasting menus at his Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence winner Masseria, but he's bringing a more approachable vibe to this project. "It's simple, it's beautiful, it's rustic, and it's a place that you could eat at every day," said Stefanelli.

The trattoria will serve grilled meats, classic pastas and more, using ingredients from the purveyors in the market downstairs. Beverage director John Filkins built the 550-selection wine list, which is entirely Italian with the exception of a Champagne section. The list will also be available on the rooftop bar.

Officina will host various events and programs throughout the space, such as a wine-dinner series highlighting different Italian regions. This is all part of Stefanelli's goal to create a go-to spot for every occasion, from grabbing groceries at the market to enjoying a full dinner in the restaurant.—J.H.

New Orleans' Galatoire's Welcomes New Chef

Best of Award of Excellence winner Galatoire's in New Orleans has a new executive chef, Phillip Lopez, who now helms the kitchen at both the Louisiana institution and its sister restaurant, Galatoire's 33 Bar and Steak.

Co-owner Bill Kearney told Wine Spectator that Lopez, who previously worked at the now-closed Square Root, is a "creative culinary genius" with a particularly deep appreciation for wine. Kearney is looking forward to seeing the chef's influence on the wine program as well as the restaurant's regular wine dinners. Lopez replaced Michael Sichel, who held the position for seven years, but diners can still expect favorites like the bouillabaisse and shrimp etouffée.—J.H.

Boston's Columbus Hospitality Group Opens Bar Lyon

Traditional, well-executed French cuisine will be the focal point at Bar Lyon.

On Sept. 14, Boston's Columbus Hospitality Group—which owns Restaurant Award winners Sorellina, Mistral, Mooo and Ostra—is bringing regional French classics to a small space in the South End neighborhood. Bar Lyon will pay homage to the namesake French city, whose cuisine chef Jamie Mammano was inspired by.

"Lyon is the city where all the legendary chefs came from and really established all the great traditions of that country that have informed the food culture worldwide," beverage director David Borsman told Wine Spectator. "[The team] is harkening back to the foundational aspects of cuisine." The menu will feature quintessential bistro fare like chicken-liver pâté, duck confit and omelets for dinner.

Borsman says Bar Lyon emulates a "bouchon Lyonnais," which he describes as a "traditional French bistro that you can go to any night of the week, get a delicious classic meal and a beautiful bottle of wine without turning it into an occasion." The all-French wine list at Bar Lyon reflects this, representing a broad range of regions like Burgundy and the Rhône while staying affordable—few bottles cost more than $100, and 18 wines are available by the glass. The restaurant will open with 50 selections and will soon expand with a list called "cellar selections," which will have more depth and an expanded price range, but with some attractive markups in certain regions.—J.H.

Ballyhoo Hospitality, the group behind Award of Excellence winner Coda di Volpe, opened Walton Street Kitchen + Bar in Chicago this week. The two-level concept features a cocktail lounge on the first floor and a restaurant upstairs, serving classic American fare with global touches, led by executive chef Jon Keeley.

The 110-selection wine list has 17 by-the-glass options, and highlights small-production, family-owned wineries that employ organic practices. "My goal is to present our guests with a list that features excellent examples of wines produced throughout the world—both Old World and New—as well as alternative grape varieties in an effort to encourage them to try wines beyond their comfort zone," said wine director Stephanie Brauer.—B.G.

San Francisco's Alexander's Steakhouse Now Has a Casual Spinoff

ALX Gastropub in San Francisco is the first casual concept from the team behind the two Best of Award of Excellence–winning Alexander's Steakhouse locations in California. The kitchen will be headed by executive chef Jessie Lugo.

Wine director Barry Horton will maintain the restaurant group's commitment to well-curated wine lists with the gastropub's 60-selection, California-focused list, which has 26 by-the-glass options ranging from $12 to $45. "Using our name ALX, I put together a by-the-glass 'Approachable' section, 'Lavish' section and an 'Xtravagant' section," said Horton. "I think we will be seeing a much broader range of people in terms of what they might want for a glass of wine."—B.G.

Experience the thrill of the Mardi Gras carnival as seen only in New Orleans, the fascinating waterfront in enchanting Florida and the pathos of the homeless in Greater St. Louis in this fascinating video. The origins of Mardi Gras or "Fat Tuesday" can be traced to medieval Europe. Long before Mardi Gras was introduction to America, ancient Romans were celebrating Lupercalia, a circus like festival not entirely unlike the Mardi Gras we are familiar with today. When Rome embraced Christianity, Christian leaders thought it better to retain some of the pagan festivals instead of abolishing them completely. Thus, Mardi Gras was slated as a carnival time that preceded the penance of Lent, and justifiably labeled as a Christian festival.

It was the French explorer Iberville who brought Mardi Gras to America in 1699. Thus, Mardi Gras came to New Orleans through its French heritage in the same year. Throughout the years, the city of New Orleans added to the celebration by establishing krewes (organizations) which host parades and balls. The Carnival quickly became an exciting holiday for both children and adults.

FEMA Chief Brock Long shut down Trump-bashing Andrea Mitchell during a televised interview on Wednesday, leaving MSNBC producers freaking out. You're going to love this! During a Wednesday interview with FEMA Chief Brock Long, MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell did her best to bash the Trump administration's efforts in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. "The fact is," Mitchell said, "Just as after Katrina, where there was infrastructure in parts of New Orleans, that is a federal responsibility. These are American citizens." "Uh, no, you're actually wrong on that," Long fired back. "It's not a federal responsibility to upkeep the infrastructure. Actually, most of the infrastructure in this [country] is owned by the private sector." Long also noted that FEMA put "over $2 billion in food and commodities" in Puerto Rico after the storm, but grocery stores and retailers have to help with the recovery as well.

Experience the thrill of the Mardi Gras carnival as seen only in New Orleans, the fascinating waterfront in enchanting Florida and the pathos of the homeless in Greater St. Louis in this fascinating video. The origins of Mardi Gras or "Fat Tuesday" can be traced to medieval Europe. Long before Mardi Gras was introduction to America, ancient Romans were celebrating Lupercalia, a circus like festival not entirely unlike the Mardi Gras we are familiar with today. When Rome embraced Christianity, Christian leaders thought it better to retain some of the pagan festivals instead of abolishing them completely. Thus, Mardi Gras was slated as a carnival time that preceded the penance of Lent, and justifiably labeled as a Christian festival.

It was the French explorer Iberville who brought Mardi Gras to America in 1699. Thus, Mardi Gras came to New Orleans through its French heritage in the same year. Throughout the years, the city of New Orleans added to the celebration by establishing krewes (organizations) which host parades and balls. The Carnival quickly became an exciting holiday for both children and adults.

          Lost: Rings Holding the Hair of Philosopher Jeremy Bentham      Cache   Translate Page      
article-image

Before he died in 1832, philosopher Jeremy Bentham set his affairs in order in a way that few people will ever do. This pre-death planning went way beyond bequeathing old books or settling debts. Bentham famously insisted that his corpse be dissected and partially embalmed—then reassembled, padded out, clad in a smart outfit, and perched on a chair. From there, Bentham’s "auto-icon," as it’s known, could continue to participate, in a way, in lively debate with his peers, well after Bentham himself had passed on.

His will was done. Save for a brief recent jaunt to America, where it was on display at New York’s Met Breuer museum, the auto-icon has stayed fairly close to home. You can visit him, most days, in his comfy accommodations at University College London (UCL).

The auto-icon wasn't Bentham's only pre-death plan. He also commissioned mourning rings bearing his bust and—in quintessential Victorian fashion—snippets of his hair. Bentham chose 26 recipients for these pieces of memorial jewelry. Each band carries the name of its recipient and the dates of Bentham’s birth and death. Work on the bands likely began a decade before he died, when Bentham had the portrait sketched by John Field, known for his ability to dash off silhouettes in five minutes or less. His assistant tagged along on the sitting, bearing plaited bits of his hair.

When Bentham died, the rings fanned out across the the world—to French military commander Marquis de Lafayette, for instance, and to intellectual and politician José Cecilio Díaz del Valle, a former mayor of Guatemala City. Today, few of the rings are accounted for, and a team at UCL wants to know where the rest of them ended up.

article-image

UCL is in possession of four of the rings, and one inscribed to French economist Jean Baptiste Say was auctioned off at Christie’s in June, where it fetched £11,250. Another ring is known to have remained in the family of William Stockwell, who worked for Bentham as a servant. That leaves 20 missing pieces of Bentham. Tim Causer, senior research associate at the UCL’s Bentham Project, is among those leading the project to find them. Causer invites anyone who comes across one to get in touch with him. They could be anywhere: One of the rings in UCL’s collection, made for fellow philosopher John Stuart Mill, surfaced at a jewelry shop in New Orleans.

The researchers hope that mapping the rings' routes through the world can deepen their understanding of the philosopher's reach. “I’d like to think that tracking down the remaining rings would be a physical manifestation of just how far and wide Bentham’s ideas traveled, and of his influence in Europe and the Americas,” Causer says. Among his philosophical contributions was utilitarianism, under which he emphasized the importance of the greatest happiness for greatest number of people.

And if those bands ever get back together? An exhibition at UCL would be likely, Causer says. A totally normal one, no funny business: “Best not to mention the specially constructed underground vault in which we’ll gather all 26 rings to perform the ceremony to bring the auto-icon back to life.”

          Hue Jackson won't rush Baker Mayfield in the wake of Sam Darnold's victory and Tyrod Taylor's tie      Cache   Translate Page      

Jackson won't rush Baker Mayfield into the lineup, even in the wake of Sam Darnold's victory and Tyrod Taylor's tie. Watch video

BEREA, Ohio -- Sam Darnold's exciting NFL debut and Tyrod Taylor's rough one did nothing to change Hue Jackson's mind about slow-playing it with Baker Mayfield.

Darnold, whom the Browns passed on at No. 1 and who will come to town next Thursday night with the Jets who snatched him up at No. 3, beat the Lions 48-17 in his NFL debut. He completed 16-of-21 attempts for 198 yards, with two touchdowns and a pick six -- on his first play -- for a 116.8 rating.  Like Taylor, Darnold got a boatload of takeaways by his defense -- four interceptions off Matt Stafford -- but was able to capitalize on them.

In the aftermath of the Jets' victory -- by the youngest NFL quarterback to ever start a game -- national pundits started calling for the Browns to back their Ferrari out of the garage and take it for a spin. But Jackson never thought of starting Mayfield for Sunday's game in New Orleans.

"I like our quarterback,'' said Jackson. "I like our young quarterback a lot, but it did not change my mind in anything. Baker has been really good in practice. I've done for him what I said what I was going to do, getting him some reps at the end at times. He's still growing. The thing that I love, he's so engaged in what we're doing. That is a fist bump to him. I'm sure that it's tough.

"I'm sure that he wants to play. Any competitor wants to. At the same time, I think he's ready. He's preparing himself week in and week out on what it takes to play. When his day comes, he's going to go out there and play well. I keep saying that. Do not know when it is, but when it does happen, he'll play well."

Likewise, Jackson hasn't re-evaluated the plan in the wake of Taylor going 15-of-40 (37.5%) in the 21-21 tie with the Steelers and converting only one of six takeaways. In overtime, he failed to manage a first down in his four possessions.

"I would not want to live with 15-for-40 for a long time because I don't think that we'll  be that again,'' he said. "I really don't. I understand the question. I think that's a non-issue. First game, chalk it up to what it is. I believe that Tyrod will play better.''

Jackson re-iterated that the organization has a plan for Mayfield, whom they believe is the future of the franchise, and they want to bring him along slowly. It was explained that way to Mayfield during the pre-draft process, and re-iterated during training camp when he didn't sniff any first-team reps. Meanwhile, the Bills are handing the keys to No. 7 overall pick Josh Allen this week after a 47-3 clunker to the Ravens behind Nathan Peterman, despite the fact Allen struggled mightily in the third preseason game.

"My thing about Baker, as I said to you guys before, that when we do play him, we will make a decision as an organization before we put him out there and do what's right,'' said Jackson. "The most important thing is that he's our future. If he is, we don't have to rush this thing. When everybody saw the numbers last week, everybody wanted to go, 'OK, Tyrod is out. Let's go the other way.'

"Let's slow down a little bit here. Let's get this thing going. Week 1, here we go to Week 2. Let's see if we can improve on offense and play better. Let's let this other young man keep growing in the National Football League and understanding how to do it. He's growing every day in my opinion. I'm appreciative of his work ethic and what he's doing in the building. We all have to let it all play itself out at the right time and kind of go from there."

The drumbeat for Mayfield will continue to grow louder if Taylor doesn't pull this new offense together in a hurry. As it is, Saints quarterback Drew Brees, a future Hall of Fame, unwittingly cranked up the Mayfield Mania during a conference call with Browns writers on Wednesday when he said Mayfield 'can be a lot better than me.'

"I think all of those guys respect each other,'' said Jackson. "Obviously, they were both born in Texas so there is a little bit of history there. I know that they're not friends or anything like that, but I think Drew wants to see Baker do well, like we all do. I think when Baker plays, he'll start carving out his career for himself.

"I've said is since the day we have had him, he's going to have a great career here in Cleveland. Now what that turns into, hopefully, it turns into what Drew Brees has done and then we will be able to talk about it. Until that happens, I do not think that we can."

CLEVELAND — Drew Brees sees a lot of himself in Browns rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield.

A fellow Texan, Brees has never met Mayfield but he's tracked his playing career from afar and has been impressed by virtually everything he's seen from the Heisman Trophy winner, now waiting his turn to play in Cleveland.

          First Look: Watch John Lydon Voice the Villainous Meat Sweats in 'Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'      Cache   Translate Page      
For a music legend who has conquered both the rock stage and the art of cynical snark, there’s only one place to go. The sewer.


Unleash the flavor!

Former Sex Pistol and current Public Image Ltd frontman John Rotten Lydon is going underground, of sorts, voicing a character in Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Nickelodeon’s latest reimagining of the iconic franchise that bows Monday, Sept. 17 at 6:30pm (ET/PT).

Lydon lends his unmistakable vocals to new character Meat Sweats. He’s an erstwhile celebrity chef (think Gordon Ramsay), who got bit by a mosquito and is now a crazed power-hungry mutant pig who scours the scene underneath NYC looking for the perfect living ingredients for his diabolical recipes, including Turtle Soup! In other words, Sweats is the latest menace to take on the band of pizza-loving heroes in a half shell.

Although Lydon is on the road promoting new doc The Public Image Is Rotten and prepping for the new PiL tour, which starts Oct. 9 in New Orleans, he did pause to embody his new character for Billboard. “Meat taught me everything,” he says. “Now to trap a turtle!”

Check out a first-look at John Lydon voicing Meat Sweats in the Turtley Awesome video below!:



In additional news, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles voice actor Eric Bauza recently talked to KTNV Las Vegas about Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, including about the new-look Splinter; how the cast members fortunately (or unfortunately) look like their characters; the shows many guest stars; Meat Sweats' love for Turtle Soup, and more! Check the interview out now at ktnv.com!

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premieres Monday 17th September 2018 on Nickelodeon USA and Saturday 22nd September 2018 on Nicktoons UK & Ireland and Channel 5! Visit nick.com and nicktoons.co.uk/rise.

-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:

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.

Pick:  Neutral (Need more observations) (Coaching records)

*Special note:

Sam Darnold is born on the 156th day of the year
Thirty-Three = 156; Sam = 33; New York = 33; NY Jets = 33


-5.5 PIT, O / U 52.5 (Pennsylvania = 53)

This will be the 33rd regular season match between the two teams, and the 35th all-time counting the playoffs.  The Steelers lead the regular season 22-10 and the playoffs are tied at 1-1.

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
With a win, he will improve his home record to 82-28.  Pittsburgh Steelers = 81
*Patrick Mahomes = 82

This game will come 198-days (span of 199) from Ben's 36th birthday, March 2, 2018.

This game will come the day before the 23rd birthday of Patrick Mahomes, which is September 17.

Mahomes can begin his career 3-0 with a win, or 2-1 with a loss.
Steelers = 113, 30th prime

Pick:  Steelers



-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



-11.0 LAR, O / U 47.5

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

Expect Aaron Donald to have a big game.

          Book: The Federal Road       Cache   Translate Page      

How did your family travel to their new home? If they were headed southwest in the early 1800s they probably traveled, at least in part, on the Old Federal Road. If you’d like to learn more about its location, construction and difficulties, read this book by Henry DeLeon Southerland and Jerry Elijah Brown.



The Federal Road 
Through Georgia, the Creek Nation and Alabama, 1806-1836



The Federal Road “permitted tens of thousands of people from the Atlantic seaboard to come into the Old Southwest and settle in undeveloped territory…” The old road, which evolved from horse path to post road, to military thoroughfare and main path for pioneers to fertile lands, was once a treacherous road from Georgia to Mississippi. It was vital for communication and transportation but it was dangerous for many reasons, chiefly because it ran through the Creek Nation.

In the early 1800s President Thomas Jefferson wanted to establish lines of communication between Washington, D. C. and New Orleans, which was an important port critical to American commerce. Postmaster General Gideon Granger, ordered a trial run that showed it took 15 days to send a letter along the Natchez Trace to New Orleans. The goal was to shorten that time for express mail.

The process to turn an old horse path into a faster mail route began. In March 1805 Congress passed an act to establish a post road partly in Orleans Territory. In November 1805 a treaty with the Creek Nation included rights for the United States to operate a horse path through their territory.  In 1806 Congress appropriated $6,400 to open a road from the then western boundary of Georgia to New Orleans. “Brush was to cleared to a width of four feet; trees which had fallen across the paths were to be cut away; causeways across the swampy bogs were to be made of logs five feet long; and logs were to be laid across the creeks.” This new route from Washington to New Orleans would be 1,152 miles, 320 miles less than the Natchez Trace route. More money would be required and problems would be many but the road was begun.

Colonel Joseph Wheaton began cutting and clearing in September 1806 but problems soon followed. Swamps and mountains slowed the expected progress. Wheaton fell ill. At times a cleared route had to be abandoned and rerouted. Samuel F. Bloomfield, a post rider, estimated that less than 23 miles could be cleared in a day. The president was not pleased with that slow rate of preparing the road. In 1807 Congress investigated the failure to complete the horse path and the failure to establish dependable mail service. Later that year Postmaster General Granger had instituted express and regular mail between Washington and New Orleans with horses and riders provided by the government. Although some mail traveled along the Federal Road, the Natchez Trace was still widely used. 

Meanwhile, war with Great Britain was a possibility. Military roads were needed. In 1811 General Hampton was directed go begin construction of three wagon roads. One road would connect the Tennessee River to Fort Stoddert; one connecting Fort Stoddert to Colonel Hawkins’ place on the Flint River; and one from Fort Stoddert to Baton Rouge. The roads, built by the U. S. Army, were intended to be sufficient for moving supply wagons, cannons, and men on horse and foot. War followed. Only military travel occurred between 1813-14. Forts were built along the Federal Road. After a peace treaty was signed people who traveled the Federal Road “would become part of a region in transition, exploding with energy and urgency.” Increased travel wore down the roads. Congress allotted money for the repair of the roads: five thousand dollars in 1809 and 1816 and ten thousand dollars in later 1816 and 1818. Swamps were extensive and bridges were decayed beyond repair. 

Maintenance and repairs were dependent on the location of the portion of the road. Within the Mississippi Territory citizens were responsible for that work. All free males between the ages of 16 and 50 could be required to work on at least one road for up to six days a year using their tools. Owners could send slaves in their place. Beginning 1817 Alabama used the same system. 

Increased use of the Federal Road did not make it safer. Poor road conditions and attacks by hostile Creeks were a reality. By the early 1820s wagons and stagecoach travel occurred along the route. Stagecoaches had a usual fee of one dollar for every eight or ten miles. Both freight haulers and families were sometimes attacked. 

Pioneers continued to travel along the Federal Road despite its flaws. Benjamin Harris reported that, between October 1811 and March 1812, 233 vehicles and 3,726 people headed west past his Indian Agency on the Flint River. Settlers streamed along the road inspired by the promise of fertile land. They traveled by foot, wagons or carriages. The influx of settlers expanded the population of Mississippi. New post offices were created to serve the increasing numbers of settlers. 

Alternative travel options and a poor economy led to a decline in the use of the road. Economic issues, including the Panic of 1837, reduced traffic on the road. Travelers preferred steamboats and railroads. “The coming of the railroads ensured the demise of the Federal Road.” Eventually county, state and U. S. highways became more reliable alternatives. 

“Today the Federal Road is a shadowy presence, a wraith that runs beside farm-to-market roads, old U. S. highways, and its latest descendant, the interstate highway system.”

          The First      Cache   Translate Page      

The First, which premieres Friday on Hulu, takes off in the wrong place. It’s the morning of the launch of the first attempted manned space flight to Mars—but star Sean Penn is not on board. Penn plays Tom Hagerty, the former commander of the crew, who was relieved of his duties some months earlier. Now he’s stuck watching from the couch, with his dog, in his gorgeous New Orleans home. (The First is set only 15 years in the future, but the entire space operation has moved to the Crescent City—presumably lured by the tax incentives offered to film crews in the present.) For the first 20 minutes of the series, you are introduced to the five astronauts on board, hear their banter and dedication, and meet their families, even though you know that they will not, in fact, be the first astronauts on Mars. Is it a spoiler if the name of the show gives away what happens next? It’s not called The Second.

The First was created by Beau Willimon, who also created Netflix’s House of Cards. The new series aspires to be its predecessor’s nobler reflection. House of Cards is an over-the-top, scenery-chewing tour through American politics centered on an amoral, avaricious character with world-historical ambitions. The First is about a man with other-world-historical ambitions, but one who is deserving—an intuitive and brave leader who has given his life to something greater than himself. The series inhabits an extra-governmental sphere, where private backing and congressional dollars actually get things done. Despite the one show being about corruption and the other being about heroic accomplishment, they are both about egoists. The series are further linked by a certain pretentiousness, the shared air of prestige dramas more fixated on delivering prestige than on supplying drama.

The First is a glossy, often-inert tale of devotion and spaceflight. Its first two episodes treat inevitabilities as questions, and unfold with the zip of a DVR-ed sporting event for which you already read the box score. Will the space program survive? Will it get funding from the government? Will Hagerty get back on a spaceship? For answers, see again: the name of this show. There are entire genres that thrive on jazzing up the predictable—in a heist picture, the gang always has to get together—but The First doesn’t do nimble or light. Parts of the show may take place in zero gravity, but it’s fixated on gravitas.

In the second episode, Laz Ingram (Natascha McElhone), the cold genius and entrepreneur overseeing the entire Mars project—think Steve Jobs meets Elon Musk meets a non-corrupt Elizabeth Holmes—must explain to Congress (but really the audience) why going to Mars is worth it. Why risk the human life? Why spend the resources that could be spent elsewhere? Her inspirational speech feels a little halfhearted, not because the show doesn’t believe in the symbolic (and scientific) importance of reaching Mars, but because the series itself is the pep-talk on spaceflight’s behalf.

It’s become something of a joke in the peak-TV era to promise of a show: Stick with it, it gets better! But The First does get better after its first two episodes (before getting worse again) by jettisoning inevitability. It’s no knock on Penn’s performance that the most surprising thing about it is just how ripped a 58-year old man can be (very): He’s exactly the sort of reliable but emotional action hero whom we like to see entrusted with a big important fictional space mission. This is why his crew, the focus of Episodes 3 and 4, makes for more interesting television. They are a diverse bunch, including a Korean-American engineer, a mother whose own mother has Alzheimer’s, a newly engaged scientist, a Hispanic doctor, and an unattached pilot all united by their unyielding devotion to Mars, no matter the risk. Who will get kicked off the mission to make room for Hagerty? And how will this choice reverberate on his relationship with his second-in-command Lt. Price (LisaGay Hamilton), the black, queer woman he replaced as leader, who would have been the center of a more consistently compelling TV show?

The First knows there is a connection between heroism and narcissism. What person who didn’t possess both qualities would really want to go to outer space? As trouble keeps piling up for the mission, Laz asks the astronauts to reaffirm their commitment to it, to speak with their families about the possibility they will die on Mars. Laz, who will never go to space herself, is kind of the Frank Underwood of the piece: not the villain, but the driver of plot; the dreamer, if not the schemer. As the astronauts talk to their families, we see just how single-minded their devotion is, how unyielding. Strangers may think of them as heroes, but their loved ones will have a more complicated view.

This tension between family and space is the stuff of the series’ entire B-storyline, about Hagerty’s volatile relationship with his fragile, drug-addicted daughter Denise (Anne Jacoby-Heron), an artist still processing her mother’s death. Denise has some feelings about being raised by a man who was both hardly around and constantly at risk of dying in a shuttle explosion. It’s in this storyline that Willimon really lets his pretensions out. The fifth episode consists almost entirely of Denise’s flashbacks to her youth, theatrically rendered so that her memories appear to take place on a stage. Will Hagerty prioritize his daughter or space? The outcome, like so much else about The First, is a fait accompli. The first season ends as the show finally dispatches with the inevitable and gets to the great wide open. As flawed as I found the first season, I’ll admit, it hooked me enough that I’m interested to see how they live life on Mars.

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."
