          It's Horror Nights, and Universal is making Waffles      Cache   Translate Page      
By Robert Niles: Universal Studios is going all-in with Stranger Things for its Halloween Horror Nights this year. And with a certain brand of frozen waffles playing such prominent role in the show's first season, you probably could have guessed that Universal would find a way to include some of those waffles in its special Halloween Horror Nights food and beverage menu.

Well, if you did, you were right. Universal Orlando today unveiled five different waffle snacks, plus a waffle-themed drink, in advance of Friday's opening of Halloween Horror Nights. Those aren't the only Stranger Things-inspired items, either, as a Christmas Lights cupcake and a tray of 11 mini-donuts also join the line-up. (Eleven, get it?)

Christmas Lights cupcakes

The waffle selections include a two-waffle Strawberry "Shortcake" stack, a two-waffle Bananas Foster, a three-waffle Extravaganza filled with layers of whipped cream, chocolate, peanut butter morsels and jelly beans; fudge-dipped waffles on a stick, and a waffle sundae. You can find the first three at the San Francisco Bakery, the waffles on a stick at Benny's Burgers in New York, and the sundae at Louie's Gelato Window.

Waffle Extravaganza

Update: At Universal Studios Hollywood, this concoction will be known as Eleven’s Waffle Extravaganza. Also at USH, the park will be serving an "Upside Down Burger," with spicy queso and Flamin' Hot Cheetos, served on an upside-down potato roll with lettuce, tomatoes and a side of Tater Tots.

Upside Down Burger

USH also will have Demogorgon's Totcho, Benny's Burgers, and Benny's Chicken & Waffle Sandwich (though that's with grilled chicken, not fried - I am guessing as not to infringe on Cletus' turf?). For more sweets, there's an Eggo Doughnut, too. (Curiously, USH is using the Eggo brand name in its press material, while UOR is not.)

Eggo doughnut

Back in Orlando, the specialty drink is Syrup & Waffles, topped with waffle bits. This is a non-alcohol drink and will be on sale at the Gramercy Popcorn stand in New York, as well as near the park entrance.

Syrup  &  Waffles

The new booze this year includes three pre-mixed drinks: Totally L.I.T. (Long Island Iced Tea), Wicked Rad Punch with Blueberry vodka, raspberry vodka, triple sec, lemonade and grenadine; and Gnarly Twist, a combo of the other two. Beer and wine also will the available at the drink tents, but only Chez Alcatraz and Finnegan’s will be serving mixed drinks.

Halloween Horror Nights kicks off Friday and runs select nights through November 3.


          Water level in marsh pond      Cache   Translate Page      
There's a pond in the tidal marsh near Emeryville that I see most weekdays, and my question is about that pond's pattern of water levels. Here's an aerial image of it.

The level of San Francisco Bay's tide is easily visible in this area of the bay; the channels in the marsh vary from "quite full" to "lots of bank exposed".

The pond also sees water level changes, but much less frequently than the tidal cycles--the low water marks do not appear linked to low tide, nor to anything like heatwaves or weather generally. At irregular intervals, the water level of the pond gets quite low, and then days later it appears full again.

What makes the level of the pond vary? The rate of change seems too rapid for evaporation to be the main mover. That said, I have no grasp at all of how tidal marshes "work", hydrologically.

          Chancellor's 2018 State of the University Address      Cache   Translate Page      

UCSF Chancellor Sam Hawgood, MBBS, will deliver his fifth State of the University address on Tuesday, Oct. 30, from noon to 1 p.m. in Cole Hall on the Parnassus campus.

The Chancellor will share highlights over the past year, including major milestones in research, education and patient care, as well as acknowledge the great work of members of the UCSF community. He will also provide updates on UCSF’s current initiatives and plans, including the revitalization of the Parnassus Heights campus and the campaign to raise $5 billion to sustain UCSF’s robust enterprise and to recruit and retain top talent.

The Chancellor will focus his remarks on UCSF’s extensive work in the community to address health inequities and some of the most challenging societal issues, such as homelessness, mental health and poverty.

The address will be presented live in Cole Hall on the Parnassus campus and from UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. It will be live streamed on YouTube and simulcast at Byers Hall in Genentech Hall at Mission Bay, Herbst Hall at Mount Zion as well as in Fresno.

Joining the Chancellor for his presentation will be Margot Kushel, MD, professor of medicine and director of the Center for Vulnerable Populations at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, and Dayna Long, MD, medical director for the Department of Community Health and Engagement at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland.

Kushel’s research focuses on the causes and consequences of homelessness and housing instability, with the goal of preventing and ending homelessness and ameliorating the effects of homelessness on health. Her research seeks to inform clinical practice, programs, and policies.

Long is finding ways to use health care settings as a buffer against toxic stress in order to help kids achieve better outcomes. She is working in Oakland and collaborating with other UCSF researchers on multidisciplinary clinical programs, trials and partnerships to address disparities that will help improve the health of all children.

KENNER, La. (AP) — The mayor of a New Orleans suburb said Wednesday he is rescinding his order banning his city's recreation department from purchasing Nike products for use at city recreation facilities.

Kenner Mayor Ben Zahn said at a news conference that he did so on the advice of the city attorney.

"That memorandum divided our city and placed Kenner in a false and unflattering light on the national stage," Zahn added.

Last week's order in a memo from Zahn came days after the athletic apparel maker began using former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in an ad campaign.

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

jamie dimon

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

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

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

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

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

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

Investments work best when partners identify opportunity

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SAN FRANCISCO - The majority of the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Sept. 4 vacated a district court's ruling that a Nevada law that limits the damages that may be collected from general contractors who are vicariously liable for the debts of Employee Retirement Income Security Act plan members is preempted by ERISA after determining that the law, which has since been repealed, does not conflict with ERISA's objectives or impermissibly "relate" to ERISA plans (The Board of Trustees of the Glazing Health and Welfare Trust, et al. v.

Crystal Bridges completes the American story with "Art for a New Understanding."

Is Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art the most woke museum in the country? That's what The Washington Post suggested in an article earlier this year as the museum began to reinstall its early American galleries to, Director Rod Bigelow said, better reflect "the complexity of the American story."

The early American galleries were initially dominated by images of patriarchy and aristocracy and unspoiled scenery — the 18th century Franks family; George Washington; the Marquis de Lafayette; Mrs. Theodore Atkinson and her flying squirrel; the poet and artist gentlemen of Asher Durand's "Kindred Spirits"; romantic landscapes by Cole, Innes, Cropsey et al., Bierstadt's nostalgic scenes of Native Americans fishing and George de Forest Brush's "The Indian and the Lily." A thematic reassembly of works in the first galleries now pairs such works with a 19th century Salish cradleboard, Lakota Siouxan beaded skin pouches, an 18th century portrait of a Spanish lady; a 20th century painting, "Florida Mexicana," by Alfredo Ramos Martinez; Nari Ward's 27-foot-long installation "We the People," the words spelled out in shoestrings. The themes of the galleries are painted on the wall in both English and Spanish: The full complement of America has been invited to the party. As that redo was going on, over in the temporary exhibition galleries was the superb "Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power," a show of work by outstanding African-American artists working from the 1960s to 1980s.

Now comes "Art for a New Understanding: Native Voices, 1950s to Now," an exhibition of more than 80 artworks, including painting, video, sculpture, performance art, photography and more, opening Oct. 6. The works address contemporary issues of social justice, ridicule stereotype and show Native artists to be not a part of a solemn, monolithic culture, but as diverse as America itself, with a keen wit sharpened to a fine edge by historical affronts (like genocide) by white America.

One of the artists whose work will be at Crystal Bridges is Kent Monkman, a Canadian First Nation artist whose work would be rightly shown next to Bierstadt's "Indian Encampment." While Bierstadt renders an idyllic scene of Natives swimming in a creek near their tipis, Monkman's arch landscape "History Is Painted by the Victors" shows a Native man in high-heeled and thigh-high red patent leather boots painting beside a mountain lake and surrounded by nude white men who've cast off blue uniforms. A couple of the men are boxing, others are wrestling, one's playing a panpipe, most are languid. Monkman's used his alter-ego, warrior-in-drag Chief Eagle Testickle, to add a bit of daring snark to history painting. Monkman is a terrific artist; this work is reason enough to go to Crystal Bridges for "Art for a New Understanding." He's also painted a takeoff on "Kindred Spirits"; instead of friends Thomas Cole and William Cullen Bryant, Monkman's put a Native and a white man fighting on the rock; let's hope that is also in the show.

Also enlightening: a 1990 photograph of laughing artists Lisa Mayo, Gloria Miguel and Muriel Miguel, who in 1976 founded the feminist Spiderwoman Theater, the country's longest-running Native female theatrical company; Shan Goshan's two baskets, "Removal," in which the artist has cut a copy of the Indian Removal Act of 1830 into thin strips and used them to weave traditional Cherokee baskets; and from Crystal Bridges' own collection, James Lavadour's landscape-reminiscent abstracts "Shake."

"Art for a New Understanding" runs through Jan. 7. Crystal Bridges has scheduled all sorts of programs in conjunction with the show, including painting and sculpture workshops, films, artist talks and more. On view now is "In Conversation: Will Wilson and Edward Curtis," an exhibition that pairs photographs of contemporary Native Americans by Wilson with the early 20th century photographs of Curtis.

Pablo Picasso, Robert Mapplethorpe, Henri Matisse, Kazimir Malevich — these are among the artists whose works Swiss-born Martin Muller of San Francisco has collected. Muller has a Little Rock connection — he lived here in the 1970s — and it was in this town, the Arkansas Arts Center says, that he began to explore post-war American painting. Muller will return to Little Rock for the opening of "Independent Vision: Modern and Contemporary Art from the Martin Muller Collection," opening Friday, Sept. 28, at the Arts Center. The exhibition of 89 works is a survey of diverse modern and contemporary works from the old and new world, with works by such 20th century masters Corbusier (Swiss-French), Picasso (Spanish), Warhol (American) and Malevich (Russian), and contemporaries Gottfried Helnwein (Austrian), Joel Besmar (Cuban) and Frederick Hammersley (American).

Muller moved to Little Rock from Switzerland for a job with a Swiss-American company and while here spent time in the Arts Center's Elizabeth P. Taylor library familiarizing himself with American masters. In the late 1970s he decided to move west and get into the gallery business. He founded his gallery, Modernism Inc., in 1979.

As he traveled across the country to San Francisco, he's quoted in an Arts Center news release as saying, "I marveled at discovering masterpieces of modern American art, from Edward Hopper to Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, and later, the Pop and Minimalist artists, especially Donald Judd. Now, some 40 years later, it gives me great joy to have come full circle back to Little Rock and be able to share at the Arkansas Arts Center some of the wonderful artworks gathered along the way."

The show runs through Dec. 30.

          Apple unveils 3 iPhones with dual SIM, impressive cameras      Cache   Translate Page      

San Francisco, Sep 13 (IANS) Apple officially introduced its 2018 line-up of iPhones -- the premium iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR at an event in California late on Wednesday.

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will support dual SIM and dual standby functionality.

The premium iPhone XS and XS Max come with upgraded 12MP + 12MP camera and 2x optical zoom. There is an improved TrueTone quad-LED flash as well. Both the models have a 7MP RGB camera sensor in the front with F/2.2 aperture while the iPhone XR has a single 12MP camera at the rear.

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max would be available in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB storage variants in space grey, silver and a new gold colour starting at Rs 99,900 and Rs 1,09,900, respectively through Apple authorised resellers in India.

The cheapest of the lot -- the iPhone XR -- has a starting price of Rs 76,900.

The premium iPhone XS is made with stainless surgical grade steel with a new glass formulation and has edge-to-edge screen, Apple said in a statement.

Both the iPhone XS and XS Max are fueled by Apple's latest A12 Bionic chipset built on 7-nm design, which allows for 6.9 billion transistors on the chip. Also, there is a new neural engine with an 8-core dedicated machine learning (ML) processor.

The iPhone X comes with a 5.8-inch OLED display while the iPhone XS has 6.5-inch OLED screen -- the biggest ever on an iPhone. Other than the size, both the models have 3D Touch and HDR.

The Face ID in these models is said to work faster this time than last year's iPhone X.

The affordable iPhone XR has a 6.1-inch LCD screen with liquid Retina display and aluminium body instead of a steel one.

The Cupertino-based company also unveiled its new Apple Watch Series 4 with improved health features.

Its next generation of Apple Watch features edge-to-edge display with smaller bezels, which is 30 per cent bigger.

The device brings a design overhaul to the Apple Watch as the iPhone-maker is now using a new dual-core 64-bit chipset, custom designed to improve performance.

"Apple Watch isn't just the number one smart watch, it is the number one watch in the world period," Tim Cook, CEO of Apple said.

Apart from heartbeat data, the devices would now also track heart rhythm and notify users.

The new series has been approved by FDA for ECG recording as well but this feature would be limited to only US-based users initially.

The tech giant said it is working to introduce this feature in other countries as well.

          Apple blinda el corazón de sus nuevos iPhone XS, XR y XS Max      Cache   Translate Page      

La multinacional estadounidense Apple presentó sus nuevos modelos de teléfono inteligente, los iPhone XS, XR y XS Max, el último de los cuales cuenta con una pantalla de 6,5 pulgadas (16,5 centímetros), la más grande de la compañía hasta la fecha. 
El XS y el XS Max son considerados de gama alta y llevan instaladas pantallas de tecnología OLED, introducida en los modelos iPhone X del año pasado y que incrementa el contraste y el brillo con respecto a las pantallas tradicionales LCD.
El XR, por su parte, es una versión con una pantalla LCD más sencilla y un precio más asequible, pues estará disponible a partir de 749 dólares, mientras que los otros dos no bajarán de 999 dólares en el caso del XS y de 1.099 dólares en el caso del XS Max.
"Hoy llevamos el iPhone X al siguiente nivel. Os presento el que es, de lejos, el iPhone más avanzado que jamás hayamos creado", aseguró durante la presentación el consejero delegado de Apple, Tim Cook.
Además de tener la mayor pantalla que sacó nunca Apple al mercado en un teléfono móvil, el XS Max se convertirá en uno de los dispositivos con la pantalla más grande de la industria, ya que supera incluso al Galaxy Note 9 de Samsung, de 6,4 pulgadas (16,3 centímetros).
Apple amplió el tamaño de las pantallas sin prácticamente aumentar las dimensiones de los teléfonos con respecto a sus predecesores, de manera que, por ejemplo, el iPhone XS, que tiene una de 5,8 pulgadas (14,7 centímetros), igual de grande que el X, es en su conjunto un dispositivo más pequeño.
Los modelos XS y XS Max estarán disponibles en dorado, plateado y gris a partir del 21 de septiembre en Estados Unidos, mientras que el XR se podrá comprar en varios colores incluyendo blanco, amarillo, azul, rojo y negro a partir de octubre.

mejora de imagen
En cuanto al resto de novedades, se mejoró la reproducción de imágenes mediante las tecnologías Dolby Vision y HDR10, los altavoces tienen una mayor amplitud de sonido estéreo y se incrementó la velocidad del sistema de reconocimiento facial introducido en 2017. También se mejoró la protección ante el agua de manera que los dispositivos no se estropeen incluso "si caen a la piscina" y se hicieron pruebas con todo tipo de líquidos, "incluso cerveza", apuntó el vicepresidente de Marketing de la compañía, Philip Schiller.
Para los viajeros habituales, Apple añadió por vez primera en sus teléfonos la posibilidad de funcionar con más de una tarjeta SIM, algo que ya existía en otros modelos de la industria y que permite operar desde países distintos con dos números de teléfono diferentes (uno por cada país) sin tener que cambiar la tarjeta.
Pero no todo fueron teléfonos durante el acto celebrado en San Francisco. La multinacional también presentó el Apple Watch Series 4, la última versión de su popular reloj inteligente, que incluye un sensor eléctrico que le permite realizar un electrocardiograma en 30 segundos.
Además, el dispositivo dispone de una pantalla un 30% más grande que el anterior modelo, y se rediseñó el altavoz, que ahora puede alcanzar un volumen "mucho más alto" y que se movió de lugar para reducir los efectos del eco que producía en su predecesor.

The 2018 Giants, who were built to contend and only two weeks ago abandoned that longshot dream only a mere two weeks ago, now own the franchise's worst losing streak since the Truman administration. In the end, after missed opportunity after missed opportunity, the Giants lost their 11th consecutive game Wednesday by an almost imperceptible slice of dirt between Brandon Belt's shoe and the first-base bag. The Braves won 2-1 in the ninth when pinch-hitter Charlie Culberson scored from third on Tyler Flowers' two-out infield single against Will Smith and a controversial call at first. Third baseman Evan Longoria made a nifty backhand stop behind the bag and unleashed a long one-hop throw to first.

IN THE MEANTIME…HERE ARE SNAPS WITH MY iphone5 (ahem…my favorite iphone of all time) … — and here’s the post from earlier this morning of footage from this little powerhouse. Last night GoPro initiated the launch for the new GoPro camera. I’m intrigued. So I’m going to go join in the fun – I’m on the first flight to San Francisco in just a few hours. Stay tuned. Here’s what we’re told so far: _Tiny: Especially when you consider that it shoots 4K video at up to (a bit sluggish) 15fps. Drop the resolution to 2.7K, and it shoots 30fps. 1080p video can be captured at 60fps and 720p frame rate at 120fps. This is a lot of cinematic punch in a tiny body. _Sexy: GoPro seems to have made some great design modifications for this camera. It looks solid but is lighter and smaller than the Hero2. _Faster: the image processer is 2x as fast as the Hero2 _Pricing: the Black Edition is $399, the Silver is $299 and the White $199.

          Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 For Smartwatches Announced      Cache   Translate Page      

On Monday, Qualcomm Technologies launched the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 for smartwatches. Before this Qualcomm had launched the Snapdragon Wear 2100 in 2016. During the official launch event in San Francisco, Qualcomm revealed that companies like the Fossil Group, Louis Vuitton, and Montblanc are the first customers to use the platform. According to the company, Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 is their next generation smartwatch platform based on a new ultra-low power hierarchical system architecture. This results in better battery life and personalised experiences.

The Snapdragon Wear 3100 features 32-bit quad-core A7 processors, integrated DSP, and an ultra-low power co-processor. The company claims that all these features work in tandem with each other to enable extended battery life. The new model can sustain the battery life from 4 to 12 hours. And when put in traditional watch mode, the battery of the smartwatch can even sustain up to a week-long.

Louis Vuitton will use the Snapdragon wear 3100 for its Smartwatch

 

The new co-processor, QCC1110, is a bit on the smaller side. The chipset is responsible for providing better audio, display, and sensor experiences. The co-processor consists of a deep learning engine which paves way for features like keyword detection.

Juxtaposed to premier brands like Apple, this upgrade sounds like a basic step. In fact, both the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 and its predecessor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 have the same main processor. This means that we cannot expect much difference when it comes to the speed of the smartwatch.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform has three variants. The smartwatch is available in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi tethered version, GPS-based tethered version, and 4G LTE connected version. The company has revealed that the chip is in the process of mass production and will be soon ready for shipment. There’s no update about the price as of yet. However, Montblanc has announced that a smartwatch featuring the Snapdragon Wear 3100 should be available in October. The smartphone is expected to be priced at $900.

Location: Sapp Center Auditorium (Room 111).

"No Belles" is a performance of the stories of women scientists who have and have not received the Nobel Prize. A significant disparity in our society is the number of women pursuing careers in STEM. An oft-cited reason for this imbalance is the lack of good role models.  The Portal Theatre group's "No Belles" makes visible the significant contributions of women in science and serves as a powerful catalyst for increased interactions between the sciences and the community.  Notably, a performance of “No Belles” was hosted by the ACS in 2017 at the Fall National meeting as an adjunct to a symposium on the underrepresentation of women in chemistry.  It is outlined in CE&N’s Sept 11 2017 edition.  

The Silicon Valley and California Sections of the American Chemical Society are teaming up to host performances of “No Belles” on six college campuses around the San Francisco and Monterey Bay areas in October.  The Stanford Libraries and the Stanford Chemistry Department are the local hosts bringing you "No Belles".

Schedule of events at Stanford:

Performance: 4:30 - 5:30 pm

Audience conversation with Portal Theatre Group: 5:30 - 5:50 pm

Reception: 5:50 - 7:00 pm

          California Gov. Jerry Brown Convenes Climate Summit to Keep U.S. on Track for Greenhouse Gas Goals      Cache   Translate Page      

California Gov. Jerry Brown is hosting a climate action conference starting Wednesday in hopes of tackling global warming, while the Trump administration continues to push U.S. environmental policy in the opposite direction.

The three-day Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco will bring together hundreds of scientists, political figures, and business leaders to discuss topics like reducing greenhouse gas. Guest speakers include former Vice President Al Gore and actor and environmental activist Harrison Ford.

“We’re running out of time,” Brown said on the summit website. “There’s been some backsliding since Paris and our summit… aims to increase the commitments that have already been made in Paris,” he wrote in reference to the Paris climate accord, the 2015 international agreement to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases among United Nations members.

The summit’s timing became especially relevant with the approach of Hurricane Florence, a Category 4 storm exacerbated by warming ocean temperatures. California experienced its own deadly effect of global warming with its record-breaking wildfire this summer.

Ever since Trump decided last year to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord, Brown has been one of America’s leading figures in combatting climate change. Along with political and business leaders like Michael Bloomberg, Brown formed a coalition called We Are Still In to pursue the goals of the Paris accord in spite of the Trump administration’s resistance.

On Monday, Brown signed Senate Bill 100, a measure requiring California to get 100 percent of its electricity from zero-carbon sources such as wind and solar by 2045. California currently derives 44 percent of its power from renewables and hydropower. Brown’s move got a full-throated endorsement from the state’s former Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger:

Brown is also pushing for carbon neutrality by tackling the largest source of greenhouse gas emission—transportation. He aims to have 5 million electric cars on the road by 2030 (right now California has 369,000) and kill all production of gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles by 2035.

But will these efforts be enough?

The United States is falling behind its Paris accord pledge, the New York Times reported. Under Obama, the U.S. originally promised a 26-28 percent reduction from its 2005 greenhouse gas emission levels by 2025. At its current rate, the country will only get about halfway there, achieving a 12 to 20 percent decrease in that time frame.

To make matters worse, the federal government pursuing policies that would hasten, not slow, global warming.

This week, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed to roll back the Obama-era methane limits. The new proposal will ease restrictions on methane emissions, giving energy companies 60 days instead of 30 to fix leaks of the greenhouse gas. Methane, which can leak during the extraction or transportation of natural gas, oil, or even coal, is a super pollutant more potent than carbon dioxide in warming the planet. The proposal will also allow companies to conduct leak inspections once a year rather than every six months.

Brown called the proposal “insane.” In a tweet this week he said, “It borders on criminality. It perhaps is the most obvious and dangerous and irresponsible action by Mr. Trump. And that’s saying quite a lot, because he has a whole list of them.”

Brown’s anger and the work of We Are Still In will likely earn positive coverage and perhaps inspire activists and business leaders. But the question is whether it will lead to swift enough action to counteract the federal government’s retrogressive policies.

              This 300-Square-Foot Tiny Home Is Perfect For This Family of 3, and We Wish There Was Room For Us!      Cache   Translate Page      

    After renting a cottage in the San Francisco Bay Area, Bela Fishbeyn and her husband, Spencer, were looking to make a change. When their landlord raised the price on their already-$2,300-per-month rental home, they officially made the switch to tiny-house living. Even with the challenge of having their beautiful 2-year-old daughter Escher in tow, Bela admits she's never looked back.

    "Shortly after moving out, we decided to grow our family and we took a fresh look at different strategies for housing," Bela told POPSUGAR. "We wanted a space that was our own, one that we could feel comfortable adding to and customizing. We wanted a home that would inspire us and facilitate good habits."

    As a family of travelers, Bela and Spencer knew they wanted to live in a home that was well-made with a ton of character. However, these types of homes can be pricey, so the couple sprung for a 300-foot tiny home with all the bells and whistles.

    "It was the perfect way for us to have everything we wanted out of a home at a fraction of the cost."

    "We live very nomadically and spend a lot of time every year living in other places," explained Bela. "We wanted to use our house as a vacation rental while we traveled, to share it with other people and as a little side-hustle for us. So we designed the house to offer a unique living experience, something that people could view as a space for personal retreat. All of this added up to a tiny house. It was the perfect way for us to have everything we wanted out of a home at a fraction of the cost."

    Scroll through to get a peek at how this family of three makes this uniquely gorgeous - and unbelievably functional - space work for them.

              Government for Hire? Emails Show ‘Climate Industry’ Funds Jobs in Offices of Governor      Cache   Translate Page

Jerry Brown is host of a three-day “Global Climate Action Summit (https://www.globalclimateactionsummit.org/)” in San Francisco organized by an “activist donor network” that has burrowed into state government agencies, a climate change skeptic says in a new report. Chris Horner (https://cei.org/expert/christopher-c-horner), a senior fellow with the Competitive Enterprise Institute, is the author of two reports detailing how a well-endowed “climate industry” steers donor money through nonprofit organizations into the offices of state governors and attorneys general. The relationship between governors and environmental activists who are using governors’ offices to advance the climate change agenda of certain donors is the subject of a report (https://cei.org/governorsclimatescheme) by Horner released Tuesday by CEI, a libertarian think tank in Washington. “A particular theme slated for the San Francisco event is...
              Título: OUTLOOK: Texans desperately need to upgr - por: panxing18      Cache   Translate Page      
    They have a new quarterback and a new middle linebacker. They've released veterans Tevin Coleman Jersey (http://www.falconscheapstore.com/tevin-coleman-jersey-cheap) , traded away one of the top cornerbacks in the league, signed wisely in free agency and loaded up on draft picks. Sounds like a losing franchise trying to turn things around. Try the two-time and defending AFC West champion Kansas City Chiefs. The slew of offseason moves began even before free agency, when the Chiefs agreed to trades that sent quarterback Alex Smith to the Redskins and cornerback Marcus Peters to the Rams. But the pace of the dealing has hardly slowed down as the Chiefs remake an aging and expensive roster that was good enough to reach the playoffs last season but not good enough to beat Tennessee in the wild-card round. That's why they signed wide receiver Sammy Watkins, cornerback David Amerson and middle linebacker Anthony Hitchens, and landed cornerback Kendall Fuller in the trade with Washington. "We're not trying to win a Super Bowl four years from now. We're going out there and we're trying to win a Super Bowl next year," Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said. "Whether that happens, I don't know, but I know that we're going to do everything we can to put our team in position to do so." Many teams coming off back-to-back division titles would try to hold on a little longer. And the result would be a slow regression that would ultimately force the team to begin a complete rebuilding job anyway. Veach, who took over for John Dorsey last summer, took a refreshingly different tack. He went after the trade market, was decisive in his convictions and landed his biggest priorities P. J. Williams Jersey (http://www.saintscheapstore.com/p.-j.-williams-jersey-cheap) , even if he may have had to pay a premium to get Watkins and Hitchens in the door. It was a sign the candid, confident Veach is going to be a far different GM than his predecessors in Kansas City. "If we have shortcomings," Veach said, "we'll continue to work on those things. Our mindset is at every period to get our team in a position to win a Super Bowl. We have a lot of talent here. It's a lot of young talent, which is exciting for the fans, but we realize there may be some growing pains. But we have some guys that can straight up play football, and that's exciting." There is no doubt an abundance of talent, especially on offense. Patrick Mahomes II is poised to take over for Smith under center, and he showed flashes of his big arm and gamesmanship in a Week 17 victory over Denver. To ease the transition, the Chiefs added Watkins to what is arguably the best set of skill-position players in the division, headlined by NFL rushing king Kareem Hunt Nick Easton Jersey (http://www.vikingscheapstore.com ick-easton-jersey-cheap) , Pro Bowl tight end Travis Kelce and speedy wide receiver Tyreek Hill. They also retained one of their own when they brought back bruising fullback Anthony Sherman. "As a team, we've won a lot of games in the last few years," Mahomes said, "and we're bringing a lot of those guys back. And with the additions that we have added, I feel like we can have a very, very good offense. It's all going to start with how we prepare, especially at my position." Yes, the Chiefs expected to have a very good offense, just as they did last season. But one of the big challenges this offseason has been to fix a defense that ranked among the worst in the league. Hitchens was a good first step, and he'll step in to the void created by the release of the aging Derrick Johnson, the franchise's career tackles leader. Amerson and Fuller will help to cover the trade of Peters Davon House Jersey (http://www.packerscheapstore.com/davon-house-jersey-cheap) , and the draft picks netted this offseason will almost certainly be used on defense. Still, the question remains: Is that enough to make an appreciable improvement? "We've got a great nucleus coming back. We've added some players that are top-notch," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said last week. "We're fired up about this whole thing. I'm not great at standing up and going, 'Hey, here we go!' But I'm ready to roll as we're sitting here in March." 68. HOUSTON TEXANS (4-12) LAST SEASON: Texans won AFC South in past two seasons before failing to make postseason in 2017 as they dealt with numerous injuries, including to rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson and superstar defensive end J.J. Watt. Best news of dreadful season was play of Watson in seven games before he tore anterior cruciate ligament in right knee in practice. He threw for 1,699 yards and 19 touchdowns, giving Texans hope they've finally found franchise quarterback after years of misfires and disappointment. Another bright spot was continued improvement of 2014 top overall pick Jadeveon Clowney. Defensive end finished second in NFL with career-high 21 tackles for losses and his 9 1/2 sacks, 21 quarterback hits and two forced fumbles were also career bests. He had career-high 59 tackles and started all 16 games for first time in career after struggling with injuries in first two NFL seasons before playing 14 games in 2016. THEY NEED: LT, RT, TE. THEY DON'T NEED: QB Trey Flowers Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/trey-flowers-jersey-cheap) , WR, DE. POSSIBLE FIRST PICK: T Jamarco Jones, Ohio State; T Tyrell Crosby, Oregon; TE Durham Smythe, Notre Dame. OUTLOOK: Texans desperately need to upgrade offensive line to better protect Watson after trading franchise left tackle Duane Brown to Seattle last season. But it will be tough in draft because they don't have pick until third round. Houston sent first-round pick in this year's draft to Cleveland last year to trade up to get Watson, and previously shipped second-round pick in 2018 to Browns as part of deal to get rid of Brock Osweiler. That leaves new general manager Brian Gaine, taking over after Rick Smith took leave of absence to care for ailing wife, with eight picks in Rounds 3-7 seven to try and find some pieces to upgrade team looking to bounce back after last year's nosedive.

This season has been no exception with 2011 seventh-round draft pick Lawrence Guy and Ricky Jean Francois, a seventh-round pick in 2009, each providing contributions that have helped solidify New England’s defensive line that has thrived during the second half of 2017. The Patriots want to make life as miserable as possible for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles in Sunday’s Super Bowl. It puts the spotlight on Guy and Jean Francois, with Deatrich Wise (concussion) and Malcolm Brown (foot) both dealing with injuries. Guy said experiencing his first Super Bowl has validated the path he took to get here. ”My journey’s still going,” he said. ”I wasn’t thinking about this a couple of years ago. I was just thinking about doing what I could do to play harder and harder, study film and stay on the team and contribute. But now I’m blessed to be here.” Guy started 15 games during the regular season at either defensive tackle or defensive end, and he’s started both playoff games. Jean Francois appeared in six games after signing with the Patriots in early November and started New England’s AFC championship game win while playing defensive end. ”My appreciation is high for this,” said Jean Francois, 31, who came to the Patriots following stops in San Francisco Tyreek Hill Jersey (http://www.chiefscheapstore.com/tyreek-hill-jersey-cheap) , Indianapolis, Washington and Green Bay. ”I’m having fun. Clowning around with my teammates. Sitting down, watching film. Just appreciating the moment.” Jean Francois will be getting his second shot at a Super Bowl. He was on the 49ers team that lost to Baltimore in the Super Bowl to cap the 2012 season. It’s an opportunity he acknowledged he wasn’t sure he’d get again. ”It’s crazy. I never thought there’d be a point when I’d be starting in the AFC championship game again,” Jean Francois said. ”I started in one for the Colts (2014 season), but the next year I was gone. But to be on a team like this and be able to start again in a short period of time. That shows you how much trust and how much I had to do to be in that position.” Since starting with Green Bay in 2011, each of Guy’s subsequent stops in Indianapolis and San Diego ended with him getting waived. He had his longest run after being picked up by Baltimore in 2014. He played 11 games for the Ravens in 2014, and appeared in every game over the next two seasons. The Patriots grabbed him in free agency last March, signing him to a four-year, $20 million deal. He’s had one of his best seasons so far, starting 15 games and finishing with a career-best 34 tackles and a sack. Guy said he’s never been deterred by the ”ups and downs” he’s experienced. ”It can happen at the beginning of your career Dean Lowry Jersey (http://www.packerscheapstore.com/dean-lowry-jersey-cheap) , it can happen at the end of your career. But sooner or later you’re probably gonna get waived here and there,” he said. Defensive coordinator Matt Patricia says Guy’s attention to detail has allowed him to play several different positions in the Patriots’ system. Patricia said Guy’s been able to help not only against the run, but he’s been able to transition ”into a little bit more pass rush into the pocket and push and be up in the quarterback’s face.” Even in his sixth season, Guy said he’s tried to keep learning from older players around him. ”Everything I’ve gone through made me more of a man and made me better as a player,” Guy said. ”To experience this type of week is great. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime situation that you can never get back.” — After years of simply trying to reduce the number of kickoffs, changes finally are being made to the kickoff play in an effort to make it safer. So how safe does the “most dangerous play in the game” have to become before the NFL will choose permanently to keep it? In a new online question-and-answer session with fans, Packers CEO Mark Murphy offers a summary regarding the current status of the kickoff. “As we鈥檝e discussed here before, the kickoff is by far the most dangerous play in the game,” Murphy writes. “You are five times more likely to suffer a concussion on a kickoff than a play from scrimmage. The kickoff is so dangerous because the collisions are often at full speed. I was part of the meeting this week in New York. The discussions were very productive. The special teams coaches came forward with a number of recommendations that should make the play safer. The recommendations included eliminating the two-man wedge, eliminating the running start for the kickoff coverage team Terence Newman Jersey (http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/terence-newman-jersey-cheap) , and requiring eight players on the return team to be within 15 yards of their restraining line. The changes should make the play more like the punt, where blockers are running alongside the players on the coverage unit. We鈥檙e very hopeful that these changes will result in fewer injuries on a kickoff, but we will continue to monitor this closely. We鈥檙e hopeful that these change will allow us to keep the kickoff in the game.” Murphy, who previously has made it clear that the kickoff play remains on a “short leash” and that it could still go away, doesn’t elaborate on how safe the kickoff must become in order to save it. But if the concussion rate during kickoffs remains five times greater than in normal scrimmage plays, there’s surely an ideal ratio that the NFL hopes to achieve. Is it 1:1? Or is 2:1 good enough? No one has provided that information, yet. That said, there’s a good chance that this is less about reducing concussions and more about removing from the game a play that carries with it the greatest risk of a catastrophic — and possibly fatal — injury. Nearly nine years ago, then-Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer created a stir with a matter-of-fact assessment of the risk of playing NFL football:聽 鈥淭he truth of the matter is . . . somebody is going to die here in the NFL. It鈥檚 going to happen.鈥?The “most dangerous play in the game” presents the greatest risk of that, since players who are moving in opposite directions at full speed and who dip their helmets at impact risk the kind of upper spinal cord injury that will induce paralysis and Art Shell Jersey (http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/art-shell-jersey-cheap) , even worse, end life. Think of the consequences to the NFL if a player pays the ultimate price. Congress instantly would convene hearings and commence drafting legislation. Debates would emerge about the morality of watching football (those debates already have popped up from time to time regarding chronic the health risks of the game). Eventually, a federal commission with the power to oversee and regulate football could emerge, which likely is the we-know-what’s-best-for-us NFL’s worst-case business scenario. So even if avoiding a fatality isn’t the impetus for the ongoing examination of the kickoff, it should be. And it’s no surprise that the NFL won’t say “we don’t want someone to die on the field” when addressing its concerns about the play. The fact that people in the league routinely call it “the most dangerous play in the game” has to give the league’s lawyers nearly as many chest pains as an FBI raid on their offices, apartments, and/or hotel rooms. If people like Murphy were to admit that the league fears a fatality — and if a fatality were to happen — it could be game over, literally.

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

    Adam, at the turn of the century(1900) Portland was the second richest city on the West coast only exceeded by San Francisco and one of the top 10 in the US. Some of the classic measures of a cities wealth and influence is the number of companies headquartered in it, the number of branch offices of prominent companies it has, the number of branch manufacturing plants of national companies and the number of distribution hubs of national companies. Portland had lots in all of these categories in 1900. It was also a major transshipment point for imports and exports on the West Coast.

              Teatro ZinZanni Pitches a New Tent in Chicago's Theatre District      Cache   Translate Page      
    The circus is expanding. by Rich Smith

    The Seattle circus swings into Chicago for an extended stay.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

    Austin Calitro knows this better than most.

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

    Four franchises said no.

    But the Seahawks reconsidered.

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

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

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

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

    But not from Seahawks general manager John Schneider.

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

    “How you doing?”

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

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

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

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

    And once that call ended, the other calls commenced.

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

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

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

    Someday. Not today.

    Today, he’s taking names.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

El març de 1939, amb el triomf franquista, mentre que son company pogué exiliar-se, ella restà a Madrid i pogué arribar a la seva localitat natal, però un comissari vingut de Madrid amb dos agents la va detenir. Traslladada a la capital de l'Estat, va ser interrogada a la seu de la Direcció General de Seguretat i internada a la Presó de Dones. Restà nou anys i mig tancada entre Madrid i Barcelona (Catalunya) sense mai no haver estat jutjada. En 1949 va ser posada en llibertat condicional cinc setmanes abans del seu judici, però va ser advertida per un infiltrat que havia ordre de detenir-la de bell nou i prengué un tren cap a Sant Sebastià (Guipuscoa, País Basc), on durant la nit els companys la passaren a l'altra banda del riu Bidasoa. Restà dos mesos a França abans d'obtenir la possibilitat d'emigrar cap el Regne Unit per a trobar-se amb son company i son fill. En l'exili milità en el nucli de la CNT de Londres. Esdevingué sorda i gairebé cega, patint una paràlisi provocada per una artritis no guarida a la presó.

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

    Aldebrando Lusvardi

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

Sos pares es deien Emanuele Pittalunga, fuster, i Luigia. Obligat per son pare, deixà els estudis i es posà a treballar com a obrer fuster. S'ocupà d'activitats culturals, especialment teatrals, i adquirí una sòlida cultura autodidacta. Quan la caiguda del feixisme la tardor de 1943, entrà en contacte amb militants anarquistes genovesos, especialment amb Sardini, Barazzoni, Cianchi, Grassini, Turcinovich, Raspi i Dettori, que estaven organitzant escamots partisans. Amb Sardini i Barozzi organitzà el 8 de setembre de 1943 el Destacament Autònom Llibertari del Llevant, que operà a la vall del Nervi en coordinació amb la Brigada Partisana «Crosa» de l'Squadre d'Azione Patriotica (SAP, Esquadra d'Acció Patriòtica). En 1944 fou responsable llibertari dels enllaços amb els SAP. En aquesta època col·laborà en el butlletí llibertari mecanografiat clandestí Il Seme. Durant els combats per l'Alliberament, entre altres accions, participà amb el seu destacament en l'ocupació dels dipòsits de provisions de la Divisió Alpina «Monterosa» i en la distribució de queviures a la població. Durant la matinada del 24 d'abril de 1945 el seu destacament participà al barri de Nervi de Gènova (Ligúria, Itàlia) en l'assalt a l'Hotel Eden on estaven atrinxerades les tropes alemanyes i Antonio Pittalunga va caure mort d'un tret en el curs d'aquesta acció. Una plaça del barri de Nervi genovès porta el seu nom.

    - Francesc Ballester Orovitg: El 12 de setembre de 1920 neix a Barcelona (Catalunya) l'anarquista i resistent antifranquista Francesc Ballester Orovitg, conegut com El Explorador i que va fer servir el pseudònim Sebastián Grau Ortega. Fuster de professió, milità en les Joventuts Llibertàries de l'Hospitalet de Llobregat (Barcelonès, Catalunya). Durant la guerra civil combaté el feixisme enquadrat en la 143 Brigada Mixta a Vilanova de la Barca durant l'ofensiva franquista de juny de 1938 a Aragó. Al final de la contesa caigué pres i fou internat a Tortosa. Pogué evadir-se i passar a França on s'enrolà en els grups guerrillers que des d'allà creuaven els Pirineus i combatien el franquisme a la zona de Barcelona. En 1945 s'integrà en les Joventuts Llibertàries a Catalunya i en 1947 fou delegat de les Joventuts Llibertàries del Baix Llobregat i membre del Moviment Llibertari de Resistència (MLR).

    Foto policíaca de Luigi Parenti

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

    Nino Samaja (Bolonya, 1970)

    Nino Samaja (Bolonya, 1970)

    - Nino Samaja: El 12 de setembre de 1959 mor a Bolonya (Emília-Romanya, Itàlia) el metge i propagandista anarquista, i després socialista, Nino Samaja, que va fer servir el pseudònim Kristen Larsen. Havia nascut el 30 de juliol de 1876 a Lugo (Emília-Romanya, Itàlia) en una família jueva. Sos pares es deien Giacomo Samaja i Cesira Forti. Entre finals del segle XIX i principis del XX fou un dels militants més destacats del moviment anarquista d'Emília-Romanya. En 1891 va ser empresonat per haver organitzat una manifestació per al Primer de Maig. El 9 de juny de 1892 la policia de Forlì (Emília-Romanya, Itàlia), ciutat on va estudiar, el va definir com a «un noi influenciat per les idees anarquistes» i que en «defensa les més radicals». En 1894, quan estudiava el primer any de la carrera de medicina, va ser jutjat i condemnat a tres anys d'arrest domiciliari i per evitar la deportació fugí a Trieste (Friül), però va ser detingut per la policia austríaca, lliurat a la italiana i deportat a les illes Tremiti, on va romandre un any, fins el 14 de març de 1896. Entre 1897 i 1898 fou membre de la Federació Anarquista de Romanya (FAR). El 9 de febrer de 1897 va ser novament detingut i enviat sota arrest domiciliari a l'illa de Ventotene, encara que només va estar uns mesos gràcies a la remissió de la pena. En aquests anys de màxima activitat política, va estar en estret contacte amb Errico Malatesta, Amilcare Cipriani i amb el grup anarquista de Forlì, al voltant de Cesare Magri. A començaments de 1898 es trobava a Ancona (Marques, Itàlia) i, perseguit, hagué de canviar d'identitat i passar a la clandestinitat. El març de 1898 signà, amb Vivaldo Lacchini i Felipe Vezzani, en nom del Circolo di Studi Sociali (CSS, Cercle d'Estudis Socials) de Bolonya, el manifest «Al popolo italiano» (Al poble italià), en favor dels anarquistes processats a Ancona, que aparegué com a suplement en L'Agitazione. Després de la detenció dels redactors del periòdic L'Agitazione, es va fer càrrec, amb Luigi Fabbri, Felice Vezzani i altres joves companys, de l'edició i difusió clandestina de la publicació, on col·laborà sota el pseudònim Kristen Larsen. El maig de 1898 llançà l'últim número d'aquesta sèrie clandestina del periòdic i, sempre buscat per la policia, s'exilià, després d'una curta estada clandestina a Florència (Toscana), a França. A París visqué fent traduccions i treballant en diverses feinetes, però sense abandonar el seu compromís polític. En 1898 publicà el fullet Les émeutes de la faim en Italie i traduí el llibre de Guglielmo Ferrero Le militarisme et la société moderne. Fou un dels organitzadors del Congrés Obrer Revolucionari Internacional, que s'havia de celebrar entre el 19 i el 22 de setembre de 1899 a París, però que va ser prohibit per les autoritats franceses i ell detingut amb altres companys. En 1899 col·laborà en Le Temps Nouveaux. Com a delegat de Suïssa per al Congrés Antiparlamentari Internacional de París, en 1900 va ser expulsat de França i marxà cap a Ginebra (Ginebra, Suïssa). En aquesta ciutat promogué, amb Carlo Frigerio, Luigi Bertoni i Émile François Held, la publicació de l'Almanacco socialista anarchico per l'anno 1900 i per aquest fet el gener de 1900 va estar empresonat uns dies. L'1 de juliol de 1900 fundà i redactà, amb altres companys (Luigi Bertoni, Vivaldo Lacchini, etc.), el periòdic bilingüe Il Risveglio Socialista Anarchico / Le Réveil Socialista Anarchiste, que esdevingué un de les publicacions anarquistes més importants d'Europa. El juliol de 1900 es llicencià en medicina a la Universitat de Ginebra, doctorant-se dos tres anys després. En 1901 va ser detingut a instàncies de l'ambaixada italiana per les seves activitats polítiques i restà empresonat alguns mesos. En 1902 es casà amb la romanesa Eugenia Giulescu i aquest mateix any publicà La législation ouvrière, résponse a M. Jaurès, publicat en italià per l'editorial d'Il Pensiero en 1906. Ateu declarat, en diferents ocasions va fer conferències, amb Charles Fulpius i Luigi Bertoni, sobre qüestions referents a la religió o també en defensa de l'estudiant de química Mario Lorenzo Basadonna, expulsat del cantó de Ginebra en 1902. En 1904 retornà a Itàlia i s'establí a Bolonya (Emília-Romanya, Itàlia) i exercí la seva professió mèdica sense abandonar les seves tasques polítiques. Durant molt de temps formà part del grup anarquista encapçalat per Luigi Fabbri, que s'havia traslladat a Bolonya, i es relacionà amb els redactors de L'Agitazione, tot i que el periòdic es distribuïa a Ancona i Roma. Fou partidari d'un moviment anarquista orgànicament federalista, socialista i no individualista. Durant la Gran Guerra s'allunyà del moviment anarquista i s'acostà al socialista, però sense afiliar-se al Partit Socialista Italià (PSI). Va ser nomenat metge numerari per oposició a l'Hospital Major de Bolonya, però aquest càrrec va ser revocat en 1922 pel comissari de policia per considerar-lo «opositor al feixisme». En aquesta època, el prefecte dissolgué l'Institut Bolonyès de Protecció i Assistència per a les Assegurances Socials que havia promogut des del 1915 entre els metges i advocats. Com que no tenia el carnet del Partit Nacional Feixista (PNF), no pogué fer oposicions a càrrecs públics i visqué exercitant la seva professió de manera privada. El novembre de 1926 va ser detingut, arran de l'atemptat contra Benito Mussolini, i empresonat durant una curta estada. En 1933, en no prestar el jurament al règim feixista, va ser privat del seu càrrec de docent universitari en patologia especial mèdica demostrativa. El gener de 1940, arran de la promulgació de les lleis racials, va ser exclòs de la pràctica mèdica per la seva condició de jueu. Durant la lluita per l'alliberament es va afiliar al PSI. El 12 d'octubre de 1943 va ser detingut, amb Giusepe Bentivogli, a Molinella (Emília-Romanya, Itàlia) i alliberat el 3 de desembre –evità la deportació com a jueu a un camp d'extermini alemany per estar casat amb una ària i per la seva edat. Després de la II Guerra Mundial, va ser readmès com metge i restituït per a la docència. En 1946, quan retornà a Bolonya després d'anys d'exili als Estats Units, Armando Borghi rebutjà trobar-se amb ell, decebut personalment i políticament pel fet d'haver abandonat el pensament anarquista i haver-se passat a les files del Partit Socialista Italià d'Unitat Proletària (PSIUP). El març de 1946 i el maig de 1951 va ser elegit membre de l'Ajuntament de Bolonya. Durant una dècada assessorà sanitàriament el consistori bolonyès i gràcies a ell la ciutat aconseguí recuperar un alt nivell higiènic i sanitari, nivell que s'havia perdut durant la guerra. El març de 1947 va ser elegit tinent d'alcalde i mantingué el càrrec fins el maig de 1956. En 1953, amb els seus companys maximalistes de Partit, commemorà la mort d'Iosif Stalin. El juliol de 1954 reemplaçà a Lugo la placa commemorativa, amb textos del poeta Giosuè Carducci, en record de l'internacionalista Francesco Piccinini, mort en un enfrontament polític el 2 de maig de 1872. En 1956, per motius d'edat, el PSI no el presentà com a candidat, fet que li va causar una gran desil·lusió. Es retirà de la vida pública i reprengué els seus estudis i assaigs sobre el Risorgimento, el moviment obrer i el judaisme italià. Trobem articles seus en infinitat de publicacions periòdiques, com ara L'Archiginnasio, Bolletino delle Scienze Mediche, L'Humanité Nouvelle, Gazzetta degli ospedali e delle cliniche, Progress Medical, Rassegna Mensile d'Israele, Revue Medicale de la Suisse Romande, Riviste di Psichiatria, etc. És autor de Le siège des convulsions épileptiformes toniques et cloniques (1903, premi de la Facultat de Medicina de Ginebra), Sull'ematuria rurale. Rivista critica (1915), I tumori dell'esofago (1918), Il morbo di Recklinghausen (1919), Johannes Ulricus Bilguer. Il precursor della chirurgia conservatrice (1919), Emboli polmonari settici nell'influenza emorragica (1919), Sordita unilaterale da morbo di Mikulicz pseudoleucemico (1920), L'eventratrio diaphagmatica (1920), Le malattie professionali dei ferrovieri (1922), Studi di medicina sociale in rapporto alla pellagra, alla malaria e alla alimentazione (1924) i Bologna giacobina (1959), entre d'altres. Nino Samaja va morir el 12 de setembre de 1959 a Bolonya (Emília-Romanya, Itàlia). Armando Borghi en publicà una necrològica en Umanità Nova (20 de setembre de 1959). En morir, la seva filla Mimì Faccioli Samaja, donà els seus llibres, assaigs i opuscles de caràcter històric, econòmic, social i polític a la Biblioteca Municipal «Fabrizio Trisi» de Lugo.

    Investment fuels company leadership in delivering converged security
    and monitoring solutions for enterprises adopting containers and
    microservices SAN FRANCISCO (BUSINESS WIRE)

    Sysdig,

    , the cloud-native intelligence company, today announced it

    raised $68.5 million in series D funding, led by Insight Venture

    Partners, with participation from previous investors, Bain Capital

    Ventures and Accel. This round of funding brings Sysdig’s total funding

    to date to $121.5 million. Sysdig will use the funds to extend its

    leadership in enabling enterprises to operate reliable and secure

    containerized infrastructure and cloud-native applications.

    Sysdig Closes .5 Million in Series D Funding to Enable Enterprises to Secure  ...
    Suresh Vasudevan, CEO at Sysdig, authored a

    blog

    post with more information on Sysdig’s funding

    .

    Sysdig offers enterprises the first unified approach to container

    security, monitoring, and forensics. Unlike traditional approaches, the

    Sysdig

    was built with an understanding

    of the modern DevSecOps workflow across Kubernetes, Docker and both

    private and public clouds. Sysdig’s open source forensics technology, Sysdig ,

    and its open source security project,

    Sysdig

    , have a community of millions of users, and provide the

    foundation for a rich, commercial product set. Dozens of Global 2000

    enterprises are Sysdig customers today, including many of the world’s

    largest financial institutions, media companies, cable companies,

    technology companies, and government agencies.

    451 Research predicts the cloud-enabling technology market to grow to

    $39.6B through 2020, and containers are predicted to be the fastest

    growing segment of that market at 40%. Gartner predicts that “by 2020,

    more than 50% of global organizations will be running containerized

    applications in production, up from less than 20% today.” 1

    “As enterprises accelerate their move to cloud-native applications, they

    recognize the need for a new breed of solutions that will enable them to

    meet performance, reliability, security, and compliance requirements,”

    said Richard Wells, Managing Director at Insight Venture Partners.

    “Sysdig’s novel approach of tapping an entirely new data source that

    provides both security and monitoring for container-based applications

    has proven more effective, more scalable, and higher ROI. That

    significant technological advantage combined with an experienced

    management team led by CEO Suresh Vasudevan gives Sysdig a strong

    position in the marketplace and we are excited to welcome them to the

    Insight portfolio.”

    Sysdig launched

    Sysdig

    in October of 2017, cementing the Sysdig Cloud-Native

    Intelligence Platform as the only solution to offer unified security,

    monitoring, and forensics with native Kubernetes and Prometheus

    integration for containers and microservices. Last quarter, Sysdig

    expanded on the deep container visibility Sysdig provides to create

    Sysdig Secure 2.0, which brings

    vulnerability

    to cloud-native environments and microservices for enterprise customers.

    Sysdig Secure is the first container security offering to take a

    data-driven approach across all aspects of the container lifecycle.

    “Enterprises are adopting cloud-native technology for its speed of

    development, multi-cloud scaling capabilities, and lower total cost of

    ownership,” said Suresh Vasudevan, CEO at Sysdig. “But, they are hitting

    roadblocks with old school security and monitoring products. To be

    successful, these organizations need new solutions that are

    cloud-native. Sysdig has emerged as the only solution that delivers

    enterprises the complete set of capabilities needed to protect an

    environment, ensure that it is running smoothly, and meet compliance

    requirements. Sysdig delivers it all, both in the cloud and on-premise,

    in order to grow with companies as they undertake this journey.”

    This round of funding further accelerates the strong momentum and rapid

    growth Sysdig has experienced over the last year. Downloads of Sysdig

    Falco have roughly tripled over the last 12 months and active users of

    the Sysdig SaaS offerings have grown nearly six times year over year.

    Last month, Sysdig opened a second headquarters in Raleigh, North

    Carolina to keep up with company growth while the company also continues

    to scale its offices in San Francisco, Belgrade, and London.

    In addition to its global growth, Sysdig has expanded its executive team

    with the hiring of

    Suresh

    in April and

    Larry

    last month. Sysdig

    continues to deliver on its commitment to leading the industry by

    collaborating with the Cloud-Native Computing Foundation, the PCI

    Security Council, and industry partners and by contributing to the

    development of security recommendations for modern infrastructure.

    San Francisco-based Sysdig announced a $68.5 million Series D funding round Wednesday, doubling the amount of money the company has previously raised for its container monitoring and security offerings.

    Launched in 2013, the company specializes in platforms that help developers handle vulnerability management, more than 200 compliance checks, and security analytics in containers and microservices used in enterprises.

    Containers have been a big deal in the application development world for a while. The popular infrastructure tech gives developers a way to run applications in a consistent manner across a host of different environments, without wasting computing resources or accumulating large run costs. Among the most well known container services are Docker, rkt, and lxd.

    451 Research believes application containers will be a $2.7 billion market by 2020, with an annual growth rate of 40 percent compared to other cloud-enabling technologies.

    “Enterprises are adopting cloud-native technology for its speed of development, multi-cloud scaling capabilities, and lower total cost of ownership,” said Suresh Vasudevan, CEO of Sysdig. “But, they are hitting roadblocks with old school security and monitoring products. To be successful, these organizations need new solutions that are cloud-native. Sysdig has emerged as the only solution that delivers enterprises the complete set of capabilities needed to protect an environment, ensure that it is running smoothly, and meet compliance requirements.”

    The company says downloads of its open source security projectSysdigFalco have tripled over the last 12 months. Additionally, it has formed partnerships with companies like Google, IBM and Red Hat.

    The funding was led by Insight Venture Partners, with participation from previous investors Bain Capital Ventures and Accel.

    This round of funding brings the company’s total funding to $121.5 million.

    San Francisco-based Sysdig announced today that it has raised $68.5 million in venture capital as the company rides a wave that is changing the way applications are built for the internet.

    The funding round was led by Insight Venture Partners, and also included Bain Capital Ventures and Accel. Sysdig has now raised a total of $121.5 million.Sysdig says it will use the money to expand its products and services that target the growing adoption of cloud-native computing development.

    “Enterprises are adopting cloud-native technology for its speed of development, multi-cloud scaling capabilities, and lower total cost of ownership,” said Suresh Vasudevan, CEO at Sysdig, in a statement. “But, they are hitting roadblocks with old school security and monitoring products. To be successful, these organizations need new solutions that are cloud-native.”

    In recent years, developers have begun embracing a method of writing applications for cloud-based services using containers. Rather than writing one massive piece of software, features and services are broken up into self-contained units that can function on their own. The goal is make it easier to move features across different clouds, and to keep overall performance more stable.

    But adopting this philosophy has also meant that new software and services must be created that are optimized for the same environment. Launched in 2013, Sysdig offers a platform to monitor containers’ performance and security. The system works with such critical cloud-native services asKubernetes and Docker.

    In the press release, the company noted that downloads of one of its main services has tripled over the past year, just one example of the explosive interest in this new developer movement. Sysdig also said it opened a second headquarters in Raleigh, North Carolina, last month, and plans to continue expanding other offices in Belgrade and London.


              NASHVILLE -- The Arizona Cardinals keep pushing for a playoff spot, even if they bare      Cache   Translate Page      
    NASHVILLE -- The Arizona Cardinals keep pushing for a playoff spot, even if they barely pulled out their latest win. Adam Pelech Jersey . Jay Feely kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime, and the Cardinals edged the Tennessee Titans 37-34 in overtime after blowing a 17-point lead late in the fourth quarter. Still, the Cardinals (9-5) won their sixth in seven games. With San Francisco and Carolina winning, they remain a game back of both for a NFC wild-card berth. The Titans scored 17 points in the final 3:12 of regulation to force overtime with Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing two of his four TD passes to Michael Preston. They also recovered an onside kick to set up the tying TD with 10 seconds left in regulation. They won the toss and drove to the Cardinals 43 before Antoine Cason intercepted his second pass of the game. Tennessee (5-9) lost its third straight and eighth in 10 games. The Titans also lost their fifth consecutive home game for the first time since moving to Tennessee in 1997. The Cardinals scored 21 straight points in the second half, the last when Cason returned his first interception for a TD and a 34-17 lead. The Titans outgained Arizona 460-360 with Fitzpatrick throwing for 402 yards and Kendall Wright caught 12 passes for 150 yards hours after new president Tommy Smith said he felt they hadnt given up on Mike Munchak with the coachs job security at question. But Arizona sacked Fitzpatrick three times to go along with Casons interceptions. Rashard Mendenhall also ran for a pair of 1-yard touchdowns, and Carson Palmer threw for 231 yards and had a 6-yard TD pass to Jake Ballard. Cason also recovered a botched kickoff when Arizona surprised the Titans with a short kick to open the third quarter, and the Cardinals turned that into a 47-yard field goal by Feely. The Cardinals turned those mistakes into 13 points in a game with five lead changes. Arizona also made mistakes. The Cardinals didnt have a single penalty in the first half, but had four giving the Titans first downs on a 16-play drive by Tennessee for a TD and a 17-13 lead in the third quarter. Tennessee had won only once before this season when trailing going into the fourth quarter, losing seven other games. The Titans at least pushed this game to overtime with only a few thousand fans still left in the stadium because so many left when they fell behind 34-17. Munchak deactivated receivers Justin Hunter and Damian Williams for what team officials called violating team rules. The rookie Hunter was coming off the best game of his career and had topped 100 yards in two of the past three games. That forced the Titans to play Kenny Britt, and the veteran caught his first pass since Oct. 20. He finished with three catches. Josh Bailey Jersey . Paul George and Darren Collison each scored 17 points and Roy Hibbert added 11 points and nine rebounds for the Pacers (9-3), who won their third straight. Dennis Seidenberg Jersey . "Its amazing to do this coming from such a small island, where tennis isnt necessarily recognized as one of the main sports," Puig said. "Im just happy Im able to be here playing tennis not only for myself, but for my country too. http://www.authenticislandersshopnhl.com...ey-jersey/ . The Kelowna, B.C. rink made the announcement on their facebook page on Thursday night.PHILADELPHIA -- A.J. Burnett and Marlon Byrd were the two acquisitions the Philadelphia Phillies were hoping would help them get back to the post-season. Well, they helped them get a win in a season going nowhere. Burnett threw 7 1-3 sharp innings, Byrd hit a three-run homer and the Phillies beat the San Diego Padres 5-2 on Tuesday night. "Create some momentum. We just have to carry it over into tomorrow," manager Ryne Sandberg said. Back from a 1-5 trip that left them tied with the Cubs for the worst record in the NL, the Phillies opened a six-game homestand with only their 13th win at Citizens Bank Park. Burnett (4-5) allowed two runs and three hits to earn his first win since May 20. "It all starts with our pitching," Burnett said. "If we hold them down and give our guys a chance, the better off well be." Jonathan Papelbon left the bases loaded in a scoreless ninth to record his 300th career save, becoming the 26th pitcher to reach that mark. He has 14 consecutive saves after blowing his first try. "It was tough because I didnt feel that emotion in a while," Papelbon said. "It means a lot to me, more than most people would think." Will Venable hit a solo homer for San Diego. Starter Ian Kennedy (5-7) gave up five runs and seven hits in seven innings. Kennedy retired the first nine batters before Ben Revere lined a double to right to start Philadelphias fourth. Chase Utleys RBI single tied it at 1. After Ryan Howard singled, Byrd hit an opposite-field shot into the seats in right-centre field for a 4-1 lead. "It seems theres always one pitch youd like to take back and that was the pitch," Kennedy said. "Not a good location." Utley and Howard hit consecutive singles before Byrd drove in another run with a sacrifice fly in the sixth to make it 5-1. That was enough for Burnett, who shook off his recent struggles and was in control throughout. The righty was 1-4 with a 7.25 ERA in his previous six starts. Burnett waalked two after issuing 10 in his last two starts. Ryan Pulock Jersey. "It looked like he was throwing more strikes and he had some contact outs early in counts," Sandberg said. "He also mixed in some two-seam fastballs, which worked for him in getting ground-ball outs to left-handed hitters." Burnett only threw 89 pitches before giving way to Jake Diekman, who got the final two outs in the eighth on strikeouts. Diekman reached 100 mph on one of his fastballs. "I dont like to come out of a game, period," Burnett said. "But he throws a little harder than me." The Padres took a 1-0 lead in the third when Venable lined a 3-1 pitch into the seats in right for only his second homer in 179 at-bats. Venable hit a career-high 22 homers last season. The light-hitting Padres entered with the worst batting average in the majors at .218. Carlos Quentin snapped an 0-for-24 slump with a seventh-inning double. But Everth Cabrera (0 for 18) and Jace Peterson (0 for 18) were 0 for 5 to extend their hitless streaks. Quentin scored on Yonder Alonsos sacrifice fly to cut it to 5-2. NOTES: The Phillies had some positive injury news. LHP Cliff Lee could start throwing soon. Hes missed the last four starts because of an elbow strain. 3B Cody Asche (hamstring) should start a rehab assignment this weekend. An MRI showed that RHP Mike Adams doesnt have a torn labrum. Adams will get a cortisone shot and expects to return after a stint on the DL. ... Only Arizona has fewer home wins (12) than Philadelphia. ... Papelbons save was his first since May 24. ... The Padres lost for only the 11th time when having a lead at any point in a game. Thats the third-fewest total in the majors. ... The Phillies and Padres have 11 sacrifice flies this season. Only Pittsburgh had fewer (9). ... The Phillies signed RHP Aaron Nola, the seventh overall pick in last weeks amateur draft. ...

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

              Around the NFC North – Week 2      Cache   Translate Page      
    Minnesota Vikings The premier matchup in the NFC North in week two features the Vikings traveling to Lambeau Field on Sunday to take on the Green Bay Packers.  The Vikings survived their opening game against the San Francisco 49ers by winning 24-16.  Albeit a win for the Vikings, they certainly had their fair share of struggles to open the season.  Led by new quarterback Kirk Cousins, the Vikings offense could only muster 17 points.  In the contest, Cousins threw for 244 yards and two touchdowns while the combined rushing attack of Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray went for a total of 82 yards on the ground. On the defensive side of the ball, the 49ers and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo certainly left some opportunities on the field.  Garoppolo handed the Vikings defense three interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown.  The 49ers offense had a lot of success finding their tight end against the Vikings, but Garoppolo couldn’t capitalize on many open receivers with poor throws. Though the Vikings looked rusty in week one, I would fully expect their best effort this coming Sunday.  The motivation is there for the team to set the tone in the division against the rival Packers and the game will most likely be a slugfest until the end. Detroit Lions Can you say dumpster fire? With the Lions having their fair share of struggles throughout training camp and the preseason, a primetime Monday Night Football matchup against the hapless New York Jets would have seemed like an ideal situation for the team and new head coach Matt Patricia.  Instead, the Lions completely embarrassed themselves in a 48-17 home loss in front of a national audience. In a tight game at the half, the Jets poured on 31 points in the third quarter and were able to find the end zone in just about every realm possible: air, ground, punt return and an interception return.  To make matters worse for the Lions, Matthew Stafford was picked off a total of four times and backup Matt Cassel threw another interception in for good measure in garbage time at the end of the game. Following the humiliating loss, Matt Patricia is already starting to feel the heat from the Detroit media.  Rumors about the Lions players being unhappy about their tough workload during training camp has been spreading and the overall culture of the locker room is being questioned.  To add insult to injury, members of the New York Jets defensive unit are calling out their ability to recognize the Lions offensive plays by Stafford’s hand signals during the game.  By nabbing five interceptions, this seems well within the realm of possibility. Matt Patricia and the Lions certainly have work to do to right their ship as they head west to San Francisco for a Sunday afternoon contest against the 49ers.  Following this weekend, the Lions face three tough opponents in the following weeks in the New England Patriots, Dallas Cowboy and the Green Bay Packers. Chicago Bears We all witnessed the week one story of the Chicago Bears and a loss in that fashion can certainly be demoralizing.  In the collapse, the Bears showed some good things with their strong defense, a creative offense with some weapons and a now game-changing defender in Khalil Mack.  Where the Bears go from here will be the true test of their will. Following the loss, the Chicago media has been brutal on new head coach Matt Nagy.  But Nagy manned up and took a large brunt of the blame for his play calling in the second half of the game against the Packers.  He also reiterated that the loss could be used to learn from and get better as a team. With his head in the right place following week one, Nagy looks to prepare his team for a visit from the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football this week.  The Seahawks will enter Soldier Field at 0-1 as well after their down to the wire loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday.  With both teams desperately seeking their first victory of the season, this game will be an indicator on two fronts.  First, seeing how the Bears respond to their crushing loss to the Packers may provide an indication of how the rest of their season will unfold.  And after their week one loss, this game will provide insight as to whether the Seahawks will be any sort of threat in a heavily contested NFC in 2018.

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

              Oakland Coal Terminal Opponents Protest at ‘Responsible Investment’ Meeting in San Francisco      Cache   Translate Page      

    Anti-coal activists protested outside a "responsible investment" panel discussion in San Francisco today because one of the participants, the Bank of Montreal, has been involved in talks to finance a controversial coal export terminal that an Oakland developer and a Kentucky-based mining company hope to build in West Oakland.

    The protest was the second by the Oakland activists this week while San Francisco hosts a Global Climate Action Summit.

    Ted Franklin, a coordinator of No Coal in Oakland, said the group was rallying outside the Marriott Marquis hotel, where the panel discussion was being held, to demonstrate opposition to the project and highlight what they consider to be an irresponsible investment.

    “Grassroots action is important,” Franklin said. “Especially in the fight against climate chaos and injury to communities like West Oakland.”

    “There can be no terminal if there’s no money,” said Margaret Rossoff, an organizer with No Coal in Oakland.

    Wednesday’s demonstration was an effort to remind financiers of their commitment to sustainable, community-focused investments, Rossoff said.…

              400 investors with $32 trillion in assets step up climate action      Cache   Translate Page      

    San Francisco, Sep 13 (IANS) The Investor Agenda launched here on Wednesday will support investors in accelerating and scaling-up the actions that are critical to tackling climate change and achieving the goals of the 2015 Paris Climate Change Agreement.

    Its launch also demonstrates the significant momentum already evident, with 392 investors with $32 trillion in assets collectively under management, using The Investor Agenda to highlight climate action they are already taking and making new commitments.

    Announced as part of PRI in Person and the Global Climate Action Summit, The Investor Agenda provides a way for investors to directly report actions they are taking, and scale-up their commitment to act, across four key focus areas: Investment, corporate engagement, investor disclosure, and policy advocacy.

    Capturing new data, the Investor Agenda seeks over time to reflect the full breadth and scale of global investor-led action on climate change.

    Bringing together and helping drive participation in a broad range of global investor initiatives, it also supports investors in taking greater action. This offers benefit to investors, in being able to better manage climate risks and capture low carbon opportunities as a result, while also scaling-up the investor-led contribution to achieving the goals of the Paris agreement.

    Showcasing investor leadership on climate change will also be used as a way to inspire bolder commitment from investors and their peers, raising the bar and building on existing momentum.

    "Investors are showing great leadership to promote climate action in multiple fronts. Their efforts to meet the shortfall in the financial resources required to deliver the Paris Agreement goals, and further building on engagement with high-emitting sectors are a valuable contribution," said Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in welcoming the launch.

    The Investor Agenda has already received strong support from influential investors and climate figures alike.

    "Progress is on the agenda of the investment community, and today's announcement is hugely important, but this is just the beginning of an extraordinary, economy-wide transformation to low-carbon that we must achieve within a generation," said Christiana Figueres, convener of Mission 2020.

    The Investor Agenda calls on global investors to accelerate and scale up the actions that are critical to tackling climate change and achieving the goals of the Paris agreement.

              Bird lover gift, Plus size skirt, Gift for girlfriend, Purple Kneelength skirts, Midi skirts, A line Skirt- The bird and the falling leaves by Zoeslollipop      Cache   Translate Page      

    61.00 USD

    Story of this design:
    My best friend from Hong Kong had a business trip to San Francisco. So I had to offer my hospitality;) I brought her to a half residential and half shopping neighborhood in downtown instead of showing her the typical touristic spots. The neighborhood is called Hayes Valley. There are many charming cafés and restaurants and lots of cute shops with character! When we were wandering in a gift shop a mural in the back of that shop attracted our attention. It was very simple painting, just a bird sitting in the middle of a tree. We loved the color and simplicity. I just felt if I were to paint this mural I would add some drama to it. Voila! So the design on this skirt is inspired by that mural.
    We have a big tree in front of our apartment. The tree's leaves fall every year, but this year maybe the weather confused it. Spring is coming, but there are still lots of dry and brown leaves on the tree. I'm looking forward to seeing the new green leaves blooming, so I'm thinking maybe the bird can help a little bit. I'm wondering if there is any chance that a dancing bird will jump on the tree and makes the leaves fall! ^_^
    I hand screen printed the tree with light purple ink, sewed a pink felt bird on the tree and hand-stitch two black beads as the bird's eyes. So sweet and cute!

    Care: hand wash in cold

              Google's new AI chief has said he worries about 'horrible scenarios' that would trigger 'the complete lockdown of robotics research' (GOOG, GOOGL)      Cache   Translate Page      

    The iCub robot tries to catch a ball during the Innorobo European summit

    • Three top researchers have begun sounding warning bells about the possible negative impacts of AI.
    • Andrew Moore, the newly named head of AI at Google Cloud, said he has conceived of "horrible scenarios" that could potentially lead to a public backlash against the technology. 
    • Other researchers predict AI will lead to more automation in the workplace and reduce job opportunities for humans; and AI will one day enable more intrusion, even into our thoughts.

    Some people quake at the idea of artificial intelligence. It's safe to say that sci-fi films featuring malevolent machines have helped poison much of the public's perception of AI. 

    But three experts in the field say there's good reason to feel uneasy. While killer robots are still many years away, AI in some cases could pose an enormous threat to humans, according to Andrew Moore, the dean of the Computer School at Carnegie Mellon University who will soon take over as head of Google Cloud AI.

    In November, Moore gave the keynote address for the Artificial Intelligence and Global Security Initiative, and said: "If an AI disaster happens, and that would for instance be an autonomous car killing people due to serious bugs, and frankly I believe that’s already happened, then at some point AI systems are going to be locked down for development, at least in the US."

    "There are some even more horrible scenarios — which I don’t want to talk about on the stage, which we’re really worried about — that will cause the complete lockdown of robotics research," Moore continued.

    'There are some even more horrible scenarios'

    Moore's statements come during a time when billions of dollars are being invested in AI.

    Google, Microsoft, IBM, Intel, Amazon, Facebook, and others are pushing hard to develop the technology. Sundar Pichai, Google's CEO, once called AI more fundamental to human development than electricity or fire.

    Andrew Moore

    Nonetheless, a handful of researchers are urging caution and warning that AI misuse could bring serious consequences. 

    Last week, Kai-Fu Lee, the former president of Google China, predicted that AI will revolutionize many industries and generate a lot of wealth, but most of it will land in the pockets of a relatively small number of people. He warned that with the help of AI, business owners will automate more and more tasks that were once performed by humans.

    "So it's actually having a doubling effect...creating new AI tycoons at the same time taking away from the poorest of society," Lee said at the Artificial Intelligence 2018 Conference in San Francisco.

    At the same conference, Meredith Whittaker, cofounder of the institute AI Now at New York University and a leading Google researcher, outlined how technologists, including Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, are searching for a means to enable humans to control devices via their thoughts. She predicted that in the not-so distant future, the technology will exist that can interpret and store our thoughts.

    Whittaker then posed a question to the audience: What would happen if the authorities went to a company who had warehoused its customers' thoughts and subpoenaed a person's thought records? She called this possibility "creepy."

    Along the same "creepy" vein is the increasing ability of AI systems to read human emotions. This is something that Moore said is on the way.

    "Up until three or four years ago, the advances in computer vision and speech processing were around recognizing people, recognizing objects, and transforming spoken words into underlying written sentences," Moore told Forbes magazine last year. "Now we realize we can go farther than that. For example, the cameras in modern cell phones have such high resolution that they can see little imperfections in the face and use them to track all the parts of skin as they move around the face.

    "From tracking all the bits of the skin, you can work out what the muscles are doing under the face," Moore continued. "From what the muscles are doing, using previous knowledge from psychology, you can detect facial action units and micro expressions to get information that we as humans are not even consciously aware of.

    "This means that when in dialogue with a person, we can capture when they are excited, when they are happy, when there are fearful, or when there is a showing of contempt."

              Apple is finally making phones that look good again (AAPL)      Cache   Translate Page      

    iphone xr

    • Apple's new phone, the iPhone XR, is an iPhone with a difference.
    • It's actually colourful and fun.
    • For years, Apple has just made boring gray iPhones, leaving people in search of a device with personality out of luck.
    • But the company seems to have had a change of heart — and it looks great.

    After four long, hard years, it's finally happening: Apple is making phones that look good again.

    On Wednesday, the Silicon Valley tech giant held its annual iPhone event, announcing its latest slew of premium handsets and devices. But while in previous years, the lineup has been a predictable procession of muted metal slabs, Apple finally announced something different this year — the iPhone XR.

    The iPhone XR is positioned as a lower-cost alternative to the new high-end iPhone XS and XS Max — "lower-cost" being relative of course, with Apple still charging customers an eye-watering $749 for the device (the XS and XS Max start at $999 and 1,099, respectively). 

    The XR follows a similar design to the other models in the X family, with a nearly edge-to-edge screen featuring a notch at the top, a glass backing, and metallic sides. It differs, however, in a striking way: Color. The device comes in 6 different bold shades — black, white, blue, yellow, coral, and red.

    iPhone XR

    The XS, meanwhile, only comes in the standard silver, "space gray," and gold. They're the latest in a long line of lackluster devices, that offer nothing for people who were after some actual personality from their devices. Sure the build quality is high and the software is competent, but there's little in the way of flair or fun.

    The XR finally acknowledges that not everyone wants to keep a shard of an office block in their pocket, and that there's room for an Apple smartphone that doesn't prioritize "cool" at the expense of individuality.

    Apple has experimented with more colorful devices before, namely the iPhone 5c — a "beautifully, unapologetically plastic" device introduced in 2014 that looked unlike anything else Apple offered, while still remaining quintessentially Apple. Coming in five glossy colors — white, pink, yellow, blue, and green — the 5C was a lower-cost edition to the iPhone line, alongside the iPhone 5S. Its bold finish was reminiscent of the old iMac G3 — back before Apple began to fetishize chrome and glass at the expense of approachability.

     

    Alas, Apple didn't refresh the device the following year, ultimately replacing it with the meh-looking iPhone SE. 

    With the iPhone XR, Apple appears to be waking up to the possibilities of colour again — and it couldn't come soon enough.

              Four Tips for Feasting at Feast      Cache   Translate Page      
    by Chad Walsh

    Feasts Night Market 2017
    Feast's Night Market 2017 PHOTOS BY ALAN WEINER FOR FEAST

    On Monday, Eater published a comprehensive compendium of all the Feast events that have yet to sell out. Today, we’re narrowing that list down to the top four events you should go to if you have the time, money, and motivation, with tips on how to navigate each one. (It was gonna be the top five events, but Brunch Village sold out of tickets while this listicle was being written. IOW: Act fast.)

    ‘80s vs. ‘90s
    When: 6 pm, Thursday, September 13.
    What: This is an inaugural event. All we know is that it pits delicacies of the 1980s versus those of the 1990s. So expect E-Z Cheese? Either way, it kicks off the festival and it’s certain to have some cool show-stopping ideas.
    Cost: $125
    How to Do It: Participating kitchens often dress thematically, as do guests, so have at it. But as someone who’s spent his formative years in both decades, beware of those high-wasted acid-washed jeans, kids. They’re not—and never were—cool. Mine even had hip-level Hammer flair and a built-in denim belt. My therapist says it’s not my fault, but it was. Don’t make the same mistakes I did. Burn those jeans.

    Grand Tasting
    When: 1 pm, Friday, September 14
    What: Held at Pioneer Square, the Grand Tasting is your best bet to get up close and personal with local and national artisans, so it’s an excellent way to explore what could be the next big thing.
    Cost: $75
    How to Do It: There’s gonna be a lot to sample, but don’t feel pressured to sample all of it. Trust. The very idea of Feast is indulgence, but your body can process only so much cheese before it turns you into a mindless somnambulant. Oh, but DO sample the collabo-beers from KEX.

    Basically Bar Trivia
    When: 4 pm, Friday, September 14
    What: It’s trivia, but with celebuchefs. What could be less snobby/more snobby that showing everyone how smart you are?
    Cost: $35
    How to Do It: It’s the least spendy event on the remaining schedule. And you’ll be fed snacks while you compete. You don’t even need a date, as teams will be assigned randomly. In fact, you might very well leave with a date if you play your cards right.

    Big Feast in Little China
    When: 6 pm, Friday, September 14
    What: A whole lot of locals and nationals are gathering to showcase their own personal spin on the literally countless versions of Chinese cuisine, including Brandon Jew (San Francisco’s Mister Jiu’s) and our very own Kyo Koo (Danwei Canting) and Jasper Shen (XLB).
    Cost: $135
    How to Do It: For this event, disregard the aforementioned previous tone of culinary caution. If you see a dumpling, eat it. This one's gonna be good.

    a black bar with the word RESIST in white text

    One of the difficulties in resisting the Trump administration, the Republican Congressional majority, and Republican state legislatures (plus the occasional non-Republican who obliges us to resist their nonsense, too, like we don't have enough to worry about) is keeping on top of the sheer number of horrors, indignities, and normalization of the aggressively abnormal that they unleash every single day.

    So here is a daily thread for all of us to share all the things that are going on, thus crowdsourcing a daily compendium of the onslaught of conservative erosion of our rights and our very democracy.

    Stay engaged. Stay vigilant. Resist.

    Earlier today by me: Trump Regime Redirects FEMA Funding to ICE and Trump Regime Will Triple Size of Child Detention Camp and Hurricane Florence, Part 2.

    Here are some more things in the news today...

    Andy Towle at Towleroad: Trump Attacks 'Incompetent' San Juan Mayor, Again Praises Himself for Hurricane Relief in Puerto Rico, Where 2,975 Died. "Donald Trump praised himself again for the 'unappreciated great job' he did on hurricane relief in Puerto Rico, where 2,975 people died, and also attacked the mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulin Cruz, who has said that many of the deaths were the result of Trump's 'inability to get the job done.' Tweeted Trump: 'We got A Pluses for our recent hurricane work in Texas and Florida (and did an unappreciated great job in Puerto Rico, even though an inaccessible island with very poor electricity and a totally incompetent Mayor of San Juan). We are ready for the big one that is coming!'"

    Thus does Trump continue his reprehensible habit of very visibly attacking, in particular, women of color who criticize him.

    [Content Note: Extreme weather; displacement; death. Covers whole section.]

    Kyla Mandel at ThinkProgress: Government Shutdown Looms as Trump Claims We Are 'Totally Prepared' for Hurricane Florence. "Only one day after the official death toll was published last month, Trump said that the government had done a 'fantastic job' with recovery in Puerto Rico. ...And yet many news reports and studies have shown the government was anything but prepared to deal with Hurricane Maria last year. ...And all of these risks rise to the forefront as a government shutdown looms — a shutdown the president has said he'll follow through on if Congress doesn't provide more money for his proposed border wall."

    This is a really great point. Trump is saying we're totally prepared out one side of his mouth while threatening out the other to shut down the government. Ain't no federal aid getting to hurricane survivors if the federal government is shut down.

    Ashley Parker at the Washington Post: 'Tremendously Big': Trump Reaches for Superlatives in the Face of Calamity.
    Flanked in the Oval Office by charts showing the path of Hurricane Florence, [Donald] Trump on Tuesday issued a warning about the potentially catastrophic storm that at times felt strangely exuberant.

    "Tremendously big and tremendously wet — tremendous amounts of water," Trump said, expressing something close to admiration at the expected precipitation.

    Then the president turned to bragging about the federal response to past storms during his tenure, including Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico — though the estimate of nearly 3,000 excess deaths attributed to that storm ranks it among the deadliest in U.S. history.

    "I think that Puerto Rico was an incredible, unsung success," he asserted.

    Trump has long struggled with public displays of empathy and with rising to the role of consoler in chief. In a range of situations — from deadly shootings and natural disasters to Tuesday's anniversary of the 9/11 attacks — Trump has responded in ways that, at best, seem ill-suited to the somberness of the events.
    This is something about which I've been writing for over two years, yet another character flaw that was glaringly apparent about Donald Trump even when he was a candidate, long before Election Day.

    And it's important because it is part and parcel of what I wrote about yesterday: "There are many things that make Donald Trump unfit to be president. Chief among them is this: He does not care about other people. A man who does not care about other people, or what happens to them, isn't fit to lead them."

    He can't express sincere concern because he doesn't feel it.

    And I am very, very concerned about that as another hurricane barrels toward the U.S. coast. His apathy is deadly. We know that. We need look no further than Puerto Rico.

    (Aside: "Tremendously Big and Tremendously Wet" — With everything else this grifter has stolen, you'd think he could have left me the title of my sex memoir.) (Sorry.) (Not sorry.)

    Relatedly, Hillary Clinton published a terrific and terrifying thread on Twitter this morning, outlining the threat posed by Brett Kavanaugh if he is confirmed to the Supreme Court:
    I want to be sure we're all clear about something that Brett Kavanaugh said in his confirmation hearings last week. He referred to birth-control pills as "abortion-inducing drugs." That set off a lot of alarm bells for me, and it should for you, too.

    Kavanaugh didn't use that term because he misunderstands the basic science of birth control — the fact that birth control prevents fertilization of eggs in the first place. He used that term because it's a dog whistle to the extreme right.

    When Kavanaugh called birth control "abortion-inducing drugs," he made it clear that safe and legal abortion isn't the only fundamental reproductive right at grave risk if he is confirmed. Access to birth control is, too.

    Imagine an America in which women are barred from getting IUDs or birth control pills, and doctors are criminalized for prescribing them. It's an America in which women would be punished for insisting on being full and equal partners in society.

    Sen. Kamala Harris asked Brett Kavanaugh last week: "Can you think of any laws that give the government the power to make decisions about the male body?" He said he was not. Because there are none.

    Let's be clear: Women have just as much right as men to make the most personal health decisions without government interference. We are equal citizens and we will insist on nothing less in this country.

    [CN: Anti-semitism; fascism] Anne Applebaum at the Atlantic: A Warning from Europe: The Worst Is Yet to Come. "In a famous journal he kept from 1935 to 1944, the Romanian writer Mihail Sebastian chronicled an even more extreme shift in his own country. Like me, Sebastian was Jewish; like me, most of his friends were on the political right. In his journal, he described how, one by one, they were drawn to fascist ideology, like a flock of moths to an inescapable flame. He recounted the arrogance and confidence they acquired as they moved away from identifying themselves as Europeans — admirers of Proust, travelers to Paris — and instead began to call themselves blood-and-soil Romanians. ...This is not 1937. Nevertheless, a parallel transformation is taking place in my own time, in the Europe that I inhabit and in Poland, a country whose citizenship I have acquired. And it is taking place without the excuse of an economic crisis of the kind Europe suffered in the 1930s. ...Given the right conditions, any society can turn against democracy. Indeed, if history is anything to go by, all societies eventually will."

    Applebaum is the best conservative writing on this subject today. Maybe tied with Jennifer Rubin. Out of a very small field that includes David Frum, who gets a disproportionate share of the plaudits. (It's certainly no coincidence that all three of them are Jewish.) Applebaum and I hardly agree on anything, and I've disagreements with her even in reading this piece, but we agree at least that our democracy is in grave danger, for reasons well beyond the tired narratives of "economic insecurity."

    Eli Rosenberg at the Washington Post: Activists Raised $1 million to Defeat Susan Collins If She Votes for Kavanaugh; She Says It's Bribery. "[A] group of liberal activists in Maine created an unusual crowdfunding campaign that...raised money in the form of pledges that they said they would give to whoever decided to challenge Collins in 2020 if she voted for Kavanaugh's confirmation. If she votes no, the money will never be withdrawn from donors. ...'It seems kind of icky but it doesn't rise to the level of bribery because there's no agreement,' Jordan Libowitz, a spokesman for the Citizens for Ethics and Responsibilities. 'It's just the way money and politics tend to work these days.'"

    Which is exactly how the Republicans wanted it, and now they're complaining that their own lax rules on campaign financing and fundraising are being used against them. I mean, trust that it wasn't progressives who angled for the ability to use enormous sums of money to influence candidates!

    Fredreka Schouten at USA Today: Three-Quarters of the Secret Money in Recent Elections Came from 15 Groups. "Just 15 groups account for three-quarters of the anonymous cash flowing into federal elections since the Supreme Court paved the way for corporate and union money in candidate races eight years ago... Outside money in elections has exploded since the high court's blockbuster Citizens United ruling in 2010, allowing corporations and unions to spend in candidate elections. Groups that don't disclose their donors spent more than $800 million between January 1, 2010 and December 2016, with $600 million coming from 15 organizations, Issue One's analysis found." Welp!

    Speaking of fundraising...

    [CN: Nativism; abuse] Andrew Gumbel at the Guardian: 'They Were Laughing at Us': Immigrants Tell of Cruelty, Illness, and Filth in U.S. Detention. "'The conditions were horrible, everything was filthy, and there was no air circulating,' Kimberly Martinez told the Guardian of the five days the family spent cooped up in one facility they — like tens of thousands before them – referred to as 'la hielera': The icebox. Her husband added: 'It's as though they wanted to drain every positive feeling out of us.' They knew, from following the news, that their ordeal of escaping gang violence back home and trekking across desert terrain at the height of summer would not end when they reached the United States. What they did not expect, though, were days of hunger, separation, and verbal abuse that they said they endured at the hands of federal immigration officials."

    Anthony Cormier and Jason Leopold at BuzzFeed: A Series of Suspicious Money Transfers Followed the Trump Tower Meeting. "The June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower has become one of the most famous gatherings in American political history — a flashpoint for allegations of collusion, the subject of shifting explanations by the president and his son, countless hair-on-fire tweets, and boundless speculation by the press. But secret documents reviewed by BuzzFeed News reveal a previously undisclosed aspect of the meeting: A complex web of financial transactions among some of the planners and participants who moved money from Russia and Switzerland to the British Virgin Islands, Bangkok, and a small office park in New Jersey. The documents show Aras Agalarov, a billionaire real estate developer close to both Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, at the center of this vast network and how he used accounts overseas to filter money to himself, his son, and at least two people who attended the Trump Tower meeting."

    [CN: War; violence; death] Spencer Ackerman at the Daily Beast: Pompeo, Mattis Bless Saudi and UAE's Brutal War in Yemen. "Batting down congressional disquiet on U.S. aid to a war that has become one of the world's worst humanitarian crises, two top Trump Cabinet members vouched for humanitarian progress on the part of their allies, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Secretary of Defense James Mattis attested Wednesday morning that both U.S.-supported nations 'are undertaking demonstrable actions to reduce the risk of harm to civilians and civilian infrastructure.' Their endorsement, called 'farcical' by Human Rights Watch's Sarah Leah Whitson, attempts to dodge a bipartisan congressional effort to block U.S. tanker aircraft from refueling Saudi and Emirati warplanes for the Yemen conflict."

    [CN: Gun violence] Lois Beckett at the Guardian: 'A Human Rights Crisis': Amnesty Urges U.S. to Get Tough on Gun Violence. "American gun violence is 'a human rights crisis' and the U.S. government's refusal to pass gun control laws represents a violation of its citizens' right to life, according to a new report by Amnesty International. 'The USA is failing to protect individuals and communities most at risk of gun violence, in violation of international human rights law,' Amnesty argues. 'The right to live free from violence, discrimination, and fear has been superseded by a sense of entitlement to own a practically unlimited array of deadly weapons.'"

    [CN: Disablism] Erin Heger at Rewire.News: People Are Losing Medicaid Coverage Because They Don't Understand the GOP's Work Requirements. "Thousands of Medicaid recipients in Arkansas have lost health coverage for the rest of the year after failing to meet the state's new Republican-backed work requirement. Some don't have health care today because they never knew about the stringent rules. Jessica Greene, a health policy professor at the City University of New York's Baruch College, interviewed 18 Medicaid recipients in northeast Arkansas in mid-August and reported a lack of awareness about the policy. Twelve of the 18 people Greene interviewed did not know about the new work requirement. Many of the Medicaid recipients didn't know how to report their satisfying of the work requirement online."

    [CN: Anti-semitism; Holocaust denialism] Sam Levin at the Guardian: California Transit Agency Allows Ad from Holocaust Denial Group. "A San Francisco public transit agency has approved adverts from a group that promotes Holocaust denial and antisemitic views, claiming the organization has a 'free speech' right to buy train station billboards. Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) officials defended their decision to allow ads for the Institute for Historical Review (IHR), which the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has classified as a hate group that aims to 'defend Nazism' and spread Holocaust denial propaganda. ...They come at a time when antisemitic incidents have accelerated at alarming rates in the U.S. and across the world, and as far-right groups and neo-Nazis have increasingly pushed racist and fascist views under the guise of advocating for free speech."

    [CN: Racism] Sameer Rao at Colorlines: MENA Actors Still Overwhelmingly Cast as 'Terrorists & Tyrants'. "Years of discussion about representation and narrative shift in Hollywood have yet to change the overwhelming representation of Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) people as oppressors and extremists who pervert Islam to justify violent subjugation. The MENA Arts Advocacy Coalition, an industry advocacy group pushing for stronger and more nuanced MENA representation, highlights this premise in a new collaborative study released [September 10]. ...MENA Americans constitute an estimated 3.2 percent of the U.S. population, but barely 1 percent of all on-screen roles. ...Seventy-eight percent of MENA characters are portrayed as terrorists or tyrants."

              Ban Ki-moon Accepts Chang-Lin Tien Award for Distinguished Leadership      Cache   Translate Page      

    On the eve of his first term as secretary-general of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon was reminded by his predecessor, Kofi Annan, of the words of the first UN leader: “You are about to take over the most impossible job on earth.” Secretary Ban went on to serve ten years at the helm of the world body and preside over the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Accords. This week, The Asia Foundation presented Ban Ki-moon with the Chang-Lin Tien Distinguished Leadership Award in recognition of his leadership in international development. Accepting the honor before an audience of political leaders, philanthropists, diplomats, and heads of business in San Francisco on Tuesday, he summarized his approach: I believe that we all share a common destiny. We are all in this together. There’s not a single country or single individual, however powerful and however resourceful, that can do it alone. We all have to work together. We have to pool our wisdom and energy. So, ladies and gentlemen, let’s work together to make this world better. And I count on your leadership and global vision.  He also reflected, sometimes wryly, on his term as secretary-general. When I assumed my job as secretary-general in January 2007, I declared that my motto, my mission, would be to make this world better. After 10 years of service at the United Nations, whether I had made the world better or not, I’m leaving it to the judgement of the historians. We have much more to do. The annual award honors the legacy of the late Dr. Chang-Lin Tien, an immigrant from Asia who rose to become a prominent engineer, educator, and internationalist, chancellor of the University of California at Berkeley, and chair of The Asia Foundation’s board of trustees. Highlighting Dr. Tien’s legacy of internationalism, Secretary Ban spoke of the importance of collaboration and one of his most prominent efforts, helping negotiate the Paris climate agreement among numerous parties. As a former secretary-general, I do not carry any title, so I’m a free man now. Our world is changing. Multilateralism is under... Read more

              How Community Choice Aggregation Fits Into California’s Clean Energy Future      Cache   Translate Page      

    This month, California enacted one of the most ambitious clean energy goals in the country: getting 100 percent of its electricity from carbon-free sources by 2045. 

    California’s community-choice aggregation (CCA) providers say they’re ready to hit that milestone — and on an accelerated schedule. 

    In a Tuesday forum in San Francisco, CCA advocates laid out how these city- and county-based entities, which have grown to include millions of customers formerly served by the state’s investor-owned utilities, are pushing ahead of the renewable energy and carbon reduction goals set out in California’s just-passed SB 100. 

    They also highlighted how several policies under review by state regulators could stymie the growth of CCAs, including rules that govern how investor-owned utilities are compensated for customers taken over by CCAs, and how the two parties share responsibility for procuring the energy resources needed to keep the grid stable. 

    “We’ve had an explosion of CCAs in the past couple of years,” said Beth Vaughan, executive director of the California Community Choice Association. CalCCA’s 19 members now account for nearly 2.6 million customer accounts, up from about 1.85 million accounts at the end of 2017. 

    Most of the action has been in Northern California. These include several of the oldest CCAs in the state — Marin Clean Energy with 470,000 customer accounts and Sonoma Clean Power with 223,000. There are also more recently launched CCAs, such as Monterey Bay Community Power with 307,000 customer accounts, Peninsula Clean Energy with 291,000, Silicon Valley Clean Energy with 275,000, and East Bay Community Energy with 550,000.

    Taken together, these CCAs add up to 2.1 million customer accounts out of utility Pacific Gas & Electric’s 5.4 million electricity customer accounts and 4.3 million natural gas customer accounts. While Southern California hasn’t seen as many CCAs formed to date, Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric are both looking at large-scale CCAs being formed in their service territories, as well as dozens of cities interested in following the lead of Lancaster, California’s Lancaster Choice Energy. 

    And the pace of CCA formation is accelerating. Dawn Weisz, CEO of Marin Clean Energy, explained that she arrived late to Tuesday’s forum because she had just come from a meeting that cemented Solano County as MCE’s newest member.

    While CCAs remain a small percentage of the state’s utility customers, the California Public Utilities Commission estimates that up to 85 percent of the state’s retail load could be served by CCAs, as well as by direct access providers, by 2025. These trends are seen as an existential threat for California’s investor-owned utilities. According to state Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), the utility fight against the CCA model is continuing.

    “Every year, there are probably three or four different efforts, sometimes with a fresh bill, sometimes with a quiet amendment inserted into another bill, other times trying to push something through at the last moment," that are meant "to try [to] blow up CCAs,” Wiener said at Tuesday’s forum.

    The most recent example he cited was language inserted into one of this legislative session’s controversial utility wildfire bills “that would completely undermine CCAs," he said. "Some of us had to...hound people for weeks on end before the language was taken out.” 

    Utilities have long protested that the rules of CCA formation leave them with too high a share of the costs of serving those customers. While CCAs take over the job of procuring energy for their customers, which allows them to exceed utility renewables mandates and increase the roster of clean energy projects being built in the state, utilities remain responsible for all other aspects of keeping the power flowing, including the costs of maintaining transmission and distribution grids and managing customer billing. 

    But in the context of this week’s Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, CCA advocates say they’re fulfilling the promise that led legislators to create them in the first place — giving customers an avenue to support even more aggressive clean energy targets than the state has set.    

    How CCAs are hitting their clean energy targets 

    Most of California’s CCAs have been formed with the express aim of increasing their share of renewables faster than the investor-owned utilities they’re part of, Vaughan said. To date, they’ve contracted for more than 1,300 megawatts of renewable energy. 

    CCAs also provided the first 100 percent clean energy options for customers in the state — a move that prompted utilities like PG&E to follow suit, Wiener said. 

    At the same time, CCAs have been able to deliver their customers lower rates than their utility counterparts for both their standard renewable-rich plans and their 100-percent-clean offerings. That’s largely because CCAs have been able to procure their renewables much more cheaply over the past several years, compared to utilities that have been procuring solar and wind power under state mandate for more than a decade, back when wind and solar were much more expensive. 

    According to a 2017 report from UCLA’s Luskin Center for Innovation, this underlying market reality has allowed CCAs to offer a much larger share of renewable energy than their affiliated utilities, up to 25 percent more in some cases. Looking at a 12-month period before its publication last year, the report estimated that these efforts have helped reduce carbon emissions by about 590,000 metric tons, which under the state’s cap-and-trade regime translates to $7.5 million in annual savings for electricity ratepayers. 

    “Through our analysis, we found that continued development of CCAs may enable California to surpass its 2020 renewable energy targets by up to four percentage points,” the Luskin Center report said. This analysis was based on the performance of the five oldest CCAs, however, and doesn’t account for the new ones that have been created or proposed since then.

    Tuesday's event brought out several CCAs to tout their accomplishments on this front. Marin Clean Energy, founded in 2008, now has $1.8 billion in committed contracts for a total of 924 megawatts of resources, said Heather Shepard, MCE public affairs director. As of this year, 80 percent of that generation is greenhouse-gas-free. By 2025, MCE plans to bring that figure up to 100 percent, with 80 percent of it in the form of renewable energy — a target that would put MCE far ahead of investor-owned utilities in meeting the state’s new SB 100 goals. 

    This includes a fair share of wind and solar projects outside its service area, but MCE has also deployed just under 20 megawatts in local projects, said David Potovsky, MCE’s power supply contracts manager. Its feed-in tariff program, launched in 2012 for projects smaller than 1 megawattis now fully subscribed for first 15 megawatts, and is adding another 15 megawatts, he noted. 

    CleanPowerSF, the CCA launched by San Francisco Public Utility District in 2016, now has about 80,000 customers, including some showcase clients like Salesforce, which is buying 100 percent renewable energy for its Salesforce Tower and two other office buildings. In June, CleanPowerSF signed long-term contracts for 100 megawatts of solar and 47 megawatts of wind, said San Francisco Public Utilities Commission assistant manager Barbara Hale.  

    And San Mateo County-based CCA Peninsula Clean Energy, which began serving its first customers in late 2016, inked its first 200-megawatt solar contract last year, and has since signed up big commercial customers for its 100 percent clean energy offering, including Facebook's Menlo Park, Calif. headquarters, communications director Kirsten Andrews-Schwind noted. 

    The continued growth of CCAs is of concern to the CPUC, which published a report this year that questions whether CCA growth could undermine the state’s broader clean energy and carbon reduction goals. 

    But MCE CEO Dawn Weisz asserts that “what the [CPUC's report] got wrong is, there is no crisis” resulting from CCA expansion. “If anything, we’re creating a more diverse marketplace. And adding local accountability and transparence really adds a lot of strength.”

    How key policy decisions could support or undermine CCA clean energy plans 

    Despite their record to date, CCAs have had some challenges that utilities don’t face in procuring large-scale renewables, such as their relative lack of financial reserves and creditworthiness to ink long-term contracts. And as the Luskin Center report noted, “whether CCAs can remain cost-competitive with their incumbent IOUs depends on several policy decisions that could occur in the near future.” 

    The first big issue is over the Power Charge Indifference Adjustment, or PCIA — the “exit fee” that CCAs pay utilities when they take over their customers, Weisz said. The goal of the PCIA is “to make investor-owned utilities whole,” or "indifferent" as to whether or not the customer stays with them or joins the CCA, she said (hence the term “indifference adjustment”).  

    The CPUC has been working on the PCIA issue for more than a year. Last month, it issued a proposed decision that, while far from perfect from both the utility and the CCA perspective, does take important steps toward “fair cost allocation,” Weisz said. These include measures to stop charging CCAs for utility-owned generation built before 2002, as well as to limit post-2002 generation costs to a 10-year cost recovery period. These factors will take a significant chunk of legacy utility costs out of the equation.

    CalCCA believes these changes will help reduce today’s cost shifts from utility “bundled” to CCA “departing load “customers, which it calculates as up to $492 million annually for PG&E and up to $25 million annually for Southern California Edison in 2018. But utilities complain that these changes will unfairly burden them with legacy generation costs that should be shared by their former customers, and could potentially lead to CCAs disrupting the state’s energy markets.

    Now, the CPUC is also considering an alternative PCIA plan that would increase, not decrease, those charges by retaining legacy generation costs, as well as imposing additional burdens on CCAs, according to CalCCA’s analysis. The CPUC is expected to make a final decision later this month.

    “The real crux of the issue is that we want to make sure that what’s going into that fee are the unavoidable costs to utilities,” Weisz said. “There’s a lot of stuff in that fee that could have been avoided." 

    The second big issue before CCAs is resource adequacy, or RA — California’s term for the capacity resources that all load-serving entities, including CCAs, have to procure to ensure grid reliability during times of peak demand. Under current CPUC regulations, CCAs have covered the cost of their host utilities procuring resource adequacy through the PCIA charge. It's a method that made sense when CCAs were few and small, but which becomes increasingly difficult to manage under their current growth rates. 

    In February, the CPUC adopted a resolution that would force CCAs to contract for some portion of their share of RA requirements in the current year. CCAs protested, saying it could undermine their low-cost renewables goals by forcing them to buy short-term contracts for resources such as natural gas peaker plants that can meet the state’s needs.   

    “CCA compliance in resource adequacy requirements has been good. But it is challenging, because the market is tightening, and products can be difficult to procure,” SFPUC’s Barbara Hale said at Tuesday's event. 

    Beyond that, CCAs want to see changes in how the PCIA calculates RA costs, Weisz said. “Right now, resource adequacy is being valued in this PCIA in very short-term increments — one year, two years,” she said. CCAs are pushing for a methodology that allows for the RA value of their long-term contracts to be calculated as well. 

    The long-term role of CCAs in California’s energy future

    Weisz conceded that “the lion’s share of resource adequacy services are natural gas” power plants, increasing their share of fossil fuel-fired power. 

    At the same time, CCAs are moving alongside California’s investor-owned utilities to find cleaner ways to manage resource adequacy, including distributed energy resources such as energy efficiency, demand response, energy storage and EV charging, she said. 

    MCE has a pilot project attempting to shift loads at customers’ homes and businesses from peak afternoon and evening hours to earlier in the day when solar power is plentiful, she said. It’s also employing EV charging incentives that encourage workplace charging during peak solar generation hours, rather than later in the day. CalCCA’s Vaughan noted that all of its group's members are working on EV charging infrastructure plans aimed at accomplishing similar load-shifting and -shaping goals. 

    As CCAs grow their share of the California energy market, their role in maintaining and creating new resources for grid stability will increase. This could well lead to more regulations to incorporate them into state energy policy. CPUC President Michael Picker has laid out some ideas on this front, including creating a statewide integrated procurement process to rationalize what could become an increasingly fragmented market for renewables project development. 

    And in the longer run, CCAs that have relied on short-term procurements because of their lack of creditworthiness for longer-term power-purchase agreement contracts will have to grow to a scale that can support their share of the state’s long-range needs. Under SB 350, by 2021 at least 65 percent of a CCA’s renewable portfolio will have to come from contracts of 10 years or more — a rule that “could impact the cost-competitiveness of some CCAs due to their lack of credit history,” the Luskin Center report noted. 

    Getting to a 100 percent clean energy portfolio by 2045 is likely to bring additional challenges.

    By Crapernicus

    IF DEMOCRATS WIN THE HOUSE, THEY WILL TIE UP PRESIDENT TRUMP'S AGENDA AND INITIATE IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS AGAINST THE PRESIDENT

    If Nancy Pelosi Is Made Speaker Again, Democrats Will Likely Impeach President Trump And Grind To A Halt The President's Legislative Agenda.

    If Democrats Win Control Of The House On November 6, "The Clamor For Impeachment Would Grow Substantially." "That's a sensible-enough electoral strategy, and for the moment, the increasing support for impeachment among progressive activists and candidates has not reached a groundswell. But that could all change by the morning of November 7, if rank-and-file Democrats wake up to discover their party is suddenly vested with the power to confront a president they've decried as a threat to the constitutional order. The clamor for impeachment would grow substantially." (Russell Berman, "The Democrat Who Could Lead Trump's Impeachment Isn't Sure It's Warranted," The Atlantic , 9/11/18)

    Democrats Know They Can't Talk About Impeachment Publicly, But "The Temptation Will Be Completely Overpowering" If They Take The House. "Democrats tell us two things: They know they can't publicly say they'll impeach Trump, but most acknowledge that the temptation will be completely overpowering if they take control of the House." (Anna Palmer, Jake Sherman, and Daniel Lippman, "Inside Washington's Money Machine," Politico Playbook , 9/7/18)

    "House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Will Have No Choice But To Initiate Impeachment Proceedings Should She Succeed In Seizing The Speaker's Gavel." "In the House, the prevailing concern among Republican lawmakers is that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi will have no choice but to initiate impeachment proceedings should she succeed in seizing the speaker's gavel." (Jim Acosta and Elizabeth Landers, "Republicans Fear Potential Impeachment Move If Democrats Win In 2018," CNN , 4/11/18)

    • Seventy-Five Percent Of Democrats Polled In A Recent Washington Post-ABC News Poll Said Congress Should Begin Impeachment Hearings. "While 75 percent of Democrats say Congress should begin impeachment hearings, 82 percent of Republicans say lawmakers should not." (Philip Rucker and Scott Clement, "Poll: 60 Percent Disapprove Of Trump, While Clear Majorities Back Mueller And Sessions," The Washington Post , 8/31/18)
    • Democratic Voters And Activist Groups Are "Raising Pressure" On The Party "To Aggressively Investigate The Trump Administration." "Any scenario for Democrats winning the House depends on a wave of voter enthusiasm that's largely a backlash to the Trump presidency. Many of those voters and allied activist groups are already raising pressure on the party to pursue a more far-reaching agenda -- such as Medicare-for-all legislation, liberalizing immigration laws and tackling climate change -- and to aggressively investigate the Trump administration." (Sahil Kapur and Billy House, "Trump Scrutiny Would Intensify If Democrats Win House Majority," Bloomberg , 9/10/18)

    "Nearly Three Out Of Four Voters Expect That Democrats Will Move To Impeach Trump If They Take Back The House This Fall." "And, regardless of their own opinion on the matter, nearly three out of four voters expect that Democrats will move to impeach Trump if they take back the House this fall." (Steve Kornacki, "Shhhh! Dem Leaders Don't Want To Say 'Impeach.' Bill Clinton's Case Explains Why." NBC News , 9/10/18)

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) Has Hinted That Democrats Plan To Impose Gridlock If They Take Control Of The House. CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR: "And there are many people who wonder whether Democratic-led committees in the House will start a whole series of investigations and accountability on this president, on this administration." NANCY PELOSI: "Well, in both cases in terms of what we would affirmatively do in terms of legislation, we have established our 'For The People.' Lower health care costs, bigger paychecks, cleaner government. And I'm asking with no presumptions, not measuring for drapes. I don't see too many drapes around here anyway, but just to be ready. We have a responsibility to be ready so I've tasked the soon-to-be chairmen, our top Democrats on these committees, to work with their committees to establish priorities for us to consider as our consensus priorities to go forward, but in the same vein with the oversight. This cannot be scattershot. We're doing this in a very serious, responsible way. To say, we want it, we want to seek the truth. The truth about intervention in our elections which undermines the sacred right of people to vote under oversight, over the air our children breathe and this or that the list goes on, but it has to be prioritized and not scattershot, but direct shot to get the job done. It's all about seeking the truth where that takes us with the President and his performance remains to be seen." (CNN's "Amanpour," 9/10/18)

    LIBERAL BILLIONAIRE TOM STEYER HAS INVESTED MILLIONS ON A CRUSADE TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT TRUMP

    Tom Steyer Has Spent Millions On An Impeachment Campaign Against President Trump And Pressured Congressional Democrats To Get On Board

    In October 2017, Tom Steyer Demanded That Lawmakers And Candidates Support Removing President Trump From Office. "One of the Democratic Party's most prominent financial backers is demanding that lawmakers and candidates on the left support removing President Trump from office, putting pressure on Democrats to make Mr. Trump's ouster a defining issue in the 2018 midterm elections. Tom Steyer, a billionaire California investor who spent more than $91 million supporting Democrats in the 2016 elections, issued the demand to his party in a letter on Wednesday. In his message, Mr. Steyer called Mr. Trump a 'clear and present danger to the republic' and urged Democrats to pledge that they would seek to remove him from office if they take control of Congress next year." (Alexander Burns, "Pledge To Impeach Trump, A Key Donor Demands Of Democrats," The New York Times , 10/11/17)

    On October 20, 2017, Steyer Launched His Need To Impeach Ad Campaign And Website Advocating For The Impeachment Of President Donald Trump. "Political mega-donor Tom Steyer is funding an eight-figure TV ad campaign to "demand that elected officials take a stand" on impeaching President Trump. 'A Republican Congress once impeached a president for far less, and today people in Congress and his own administration know that this president is a clear and present danger,' Steyer says in the ad, which directs viewers to a new NeedToImpeach website." (David Weigel, "Megadonor Tom Steyer Launches TV Ad Campaign For Trump Impeachment," The Washington Post , 10/20/17)

"Steyer said he is also 'doubling' his push for President Donald Trump's impeachment, which he has already backed with a $20 million national advertising campaign. That campaign, called 'Need to Impeach,' has helped Steyer build a massive email list." (Eric Bradner, "Tom Steyer Not Running For Office; Pledges $30 Million To Help Democrats In House," CNN , 1/8/18)

    In One Of His Need To Impeach Ads, Steyer Claims That President Trump Has "Brought Us To The Brink Of Nuclear War," "Obstructed Justice At The FBI," "Violated The Constitution," And "Taken Money From Foreign Governments." STEYER: "He's brought us to the brink of nuclear war, obstructed justice at the FBI, and in direct violation of the Constitution, he's taken money from foreign governments and threatened to shut down news organizations that report the truth. If that isn't a case for impeaching and removing a dangerous president, then what has our government become? I'm Tom Steyer and, like you, I'm a citizen who knows it's up to us to do something. It's why I'm funding this effort to raise our voice together and demand that elected officials take a stand on impeachment. A Republican Congress once impeached a president for far less.

    Since 2007, less than 11 percent of the teams that have started a given season 0-2 ended up making the playoffs that year. This means 15 squads are practically in elimination mode heading into Week 2.That includes the New York Giants taking on the Dallas Cowboys as well as the Detroit Lions having to travel to San Francisco against the 49ers following a disastrous Week 1 loss to the Jets.

    As world leaders (except for Trump) gather in San Francisco this week for the Global Climate Action Summit, Bill McKibben comments on California’s new law mandating 100 per cent clean electricity by 2045—and on the next task: keep oil and gas in the ground. Also: Should Democratic strategy focus on winning the votes of moderate Republicans? Steve Phillips points to one key factor: there aren’t that many of them.  Steve is the author of the New York Times best seller, 'Brown Is the New White: How a Demographic Revolution Has Created a New American Majority.' Plus: the inequality industry: Atossa Abrahamian examines the new focus on inequality at the IMF, the Ford Foundation, and other elite institutions, and argues that there’s a big political difference between seeking to reduce inequality, and fighting for a world of equality.

    Another post in a continuing discussion (joining this post last week) about the future of photography. Is photography over? Of course not. But a provocative title none the less (appropriated from SFMOMA) suggesting we think more deeply about what photography was, what it now is, and where it’s going. This video here is part 1 of 3 from a great symposium back in April 2010 sponsored by San Francisco Museum of Modern Art featuring Photographer Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Peter Galassi (MOMA), Vince Aletti (New Yorker), Jennifer Blessing (Guggenheim) and others.

              UC Climate-Change Research is One Focus of Global Summit, New Reports      Cache   Translate Page      
    September 11, 2018
    Some of the most important climate-change research at UC Merced deals with water.

    California aims to lead the nation — and the globe — in climate change research, policy and action — in large part through climate-focused research conducted at University of California campuses and labs.

    Some of that research, including from UC Merced, will be on display this week as climate-change scientists, policymakers and trailblazers from around the globe gather in San Francisco for the 2018 Global Climate Action Summit .

    UC Merced School of Engineering professors Joshua Viers, LeRoy Westerling and Josué Medellín-Azuara and some of their graduate students will be there in support of the research they do, which is also recently highlighted in several prominent reports.

    The professors and second-year graduate student Vicky Espinoza helped write the San Joaquin Valley section of the Fourth California Climate Change Assessment . The Assessment supports California’s continued leadership on actions to address climate change and safeguard the state’s people, economy and resources by providing tools for decision making and supporting these decisions with sound science.

    This compilation of original climate research includes 44 technical reports and 13 summary reports on climate-change impacts to help ready the state for a future punctuated by severe wildfires, more frequent and longer droughts, rising sea levels, increased flooding, coastal erosion and extreme heat events.

    The most recent Assessment suggests these events will worsen in the future.

    The California-focused Assessment will feature prominently at the global summit, which takes place from Sept. 12 through 14 and brings together state and local governments, businesses and citizens from around the world to showcase climate action taking place in support of the 2016 Paris Climate Agreement. The agreement, signed by 175 countries, pledges to work toward keeping global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius, a temperature shift that could lead to severe consequences.

    Vicky Espinoza

    Summit participants will discuss the latest science documenting climate change’s effects, including historic droughts, devastating wildfires, increasing frequency of torrential storms, extreme heat, the death of millions of trees, billions of dollars in property damage, and threats to human health and food supplies, and how communities can take the most urgent actions, such as reducing emissions and achieving a carbon-neutral global economy.

    Environmental Systems graduate student Espinoza will receive a special honor, as she was selected as a finalist for the ImagineH2O fellowship for innovation in California water-energy systems as part of the Water Pavilion segment of the Global Climate Summit.

    She will be a guest at the Water Pavilion and take part in a special dinner roundtable discussion, where she’ll talk about her dissertation project.

    Viers nominated her, citing her applied research experience at Argonne National Laboratory, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the UC Water Academy ; her engagement with the community through volunteering, mentoring and tutoring; and because of her project, a potential solution to the subject of regional groundwater management.

    “Vicky has identified a technologically innovative approach to suggest where agricultural production can optimally persist to meet water availability constraints and minimize local socioeconomic impacts,” Viers wrote in his nomination.

    Espinoza said she aims to understand the full implications of the state’s Sustainable Groundwater Management Act, including its effects on the San Joaquin Valley’s irrigated lands and how proposed land-use changes will affect already socioeconomically vulnerable communities within the region.

    “My research is transdisciplinary in that it seeks to improve regional water and economic security for disadvantaged communities through the use of geospatial technology and informatics by using new, deep-structured learning techniques on heterogeneous data,” she said. “This research, now in its formative stages, will provide insight into sustaining California’s food-energy-water sector and into innovative approaches to policy and technology in California and beyond.”

    The San Joaquin Valley-focused regional segment of the statewide Assessment Espinoza helped author is just one of a series of reports being released before, during and after the summit, underlining various ways to address climate change. Medellín-Azuara led one study on statewide agricultural adaptation to climate change that also became part of the Assessment.

    Another recent contribution is the “Managing Drought in a Changing Climate: Four Essential Reforms,” written by Medellín-Azuara and Viers for the Public Policy Institute of California. This set of recommendations became public this week, and the regional Assessment report will be live later this month.

    The Braves capped off a sweep and a stellar 6-1 road trip with a victory over the Giants at AT&T Park on Wednesday. Tyler Flowers delivered a pinch-hit go-ahead RBI single in the ninth, when he was called safe on a bang-bang play at first base, and after a replay review, the call stood. Derek Holland allowed one run in six innings and struck out seven for the Giants, who suffered their 11th straight loss to set a franchise record since the club moved to San Francisco in 1958.
              La vida de Mark Zuckerberg: levantarse a las 10 de la mañana, sin televisión y deporte por «streaming»      Cache   Translate Page      
    Es uno de los rostros conocidos más reservados, pero de vez en cuando Mark Zuckerberg comparte cómo es su día a día con sus millones de amigos en Facebook. Incluso cuando no atraviesa sus mejores momentos: el empresario ha visto reducido su valor patrimonial y ha tenido que declarar ante el Congreso de Estados Unidos para explicar cómo se tratan los datos que millones de personas de todo el mundo confían a la red social. Eso sin hablar de la cantidad de jóvenes que han eliminado sus perfiles en la web porque ya no confían en ella. Esta vez, Zuckerberg ha abierto su mansión para todos, con un vídeo en el que se ve su día a día, así como una entrevista concedida a Evan Osnos, periodista de «The New Yorker». La casa cuesta seis millones de euros y fue construida en 1903 en Palo Alto. Allí se mudó en 2011 con su prometida, Priscilla Chan, y allí celebraron su boda. Ahora, la mansión es hogar de la pareja y de sus dos hijos, Maxima Chan y August Zuckerberg. Pero una de las mayores particularidades de la casa es la falta de vecinos, ya que el dueño de Facebook invirtió 44 millones de dólares en comprar todas las mansiones que rodeaban su casa para evitar la construcción de una casa con vistas al dormitorio de la pareja. Por otro lado, la pareja cuenta con una antigua plantación de caña en Hawaii, una casa en Montana y otra de cuatro plantas en San Francisco, según ha desvelado el propio Zuckerberg durante la entrevista. El empresario también ha reconocido que se levanta a las 10 de la mañana, que no se sube en una bici desde que se rompió un brazo pero sí utiliza una bici estática de 2.000 euros, en la que recibe clases vía streaming de un entrenador personal desde Nueva York y que en su casa no se ve la televisión, sino que prefiere los juegos de mesa. Por otro lado, la pareja sigue los hábitos saludables de Silicon Valley: mucho deporte y buena alimentación.

With Wednesday's 2-1 loss to Atlanta, the local Wiffle Ball team has amassed 40 runs in 16 games, an average of 2.5 that is so preposterous that the San Diego Padres would bully them in the schoolyard. In fact, in those 16 games, they had two games in which they scored 15 runs, making the real number 25 runs in 14 games.

              Around the NFC North – Week 2      Cache   Translate Page      

    Minnesota Vikings

    The premier matchup in the NFC North in week two features the Vikings traveling to Lambeau Field on Sunday to take on the Green Bay Packers. 

    The Vikings survived their opening game against the San Francisco 49ers by winning 24-16.  Albeit a win for the Vikings, they certainly had their fair share of struggles to open the season.  Led by new quarterback Kirk Cousins, the Vikings offense could only muster 17 points.  In the contest, Cousins threw for 244 yards and two touchdowns while the combined rushing attack of Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray went for a total of 82 yards on the ground.

    On the defensive side of the ball, the 49ers and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo certainly left some opportunities on the field.  Garoppolo handed the Vikings defense three interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown.  The 49ers offense had a lot of success finding their tight end against the Vikings, but Garoppolo couldn’t capitalize on many open receivers with poor throws.

    Though the Vikings looked rusty in week one, I would fully expect their best effort this coming Sunday.  The motivation is there for the team to set the tone in the division against the rival Packers and the game will most likely be a slugfest until the end.

    Detroit Lions

    Can you say dumpster fire?

    With the Lions having their fair share of struggles throughout training camp and the preseason, a primetime Monday Night Football matchup against the hapless New York Jets would have seemed like an ideal situation for the team and new head coach Matt Patricia.  Instead, the Lions completely embarrassed themselves in a 48-17 home loss in front of a national audience.

    In a tight game at the half, the Jets poured on 31 points in the third quarter and were able to find the end zone in just about every realm possible: air, ground, punt return and an interception return.  To make matters worse for the Lions, Matthew Stafford was picked off a total of four times and backup Matt Cassel threw another interception in for good measure in garbage time at the end of the game.

    Following the humiliating loss, Matt Patricia is already starting to feel the heat from the Detroit media.  Rumors about the Lions players being unhappy about their tough workload during training camp has been spreading and the overall culture of the locker room is being questioned.  To add insult to injury, members of the New York Jets defensive unit are calling out their ability to recognize the Lions offensive plays by Stafford’s hand signals during the game.  By nabbing five interceptions, this seems well within the realm of possibility.

    Matt Patricia and the Lions certainly have work to do to right their ship as they head west to San Francisco for a Sunday afternoon contest against the 49ers.  Following this weekend, the Lions face three tough opponents in the following weeks in the New England Patriots, Dallas Cowboy and the Green Bay Packers.

    Chicago Bears

    We all witnessed the week one story of the Chicago Bears and a loss in that fashion can certainly be demoralizing.  In the collapse, the Bears showed some good things with their strong defense, a creative offense with some weapons and a now game-changing defender in Khalil Mack.  Where the Bears go from here will be the true test of their will.

    Following the loss, the Chicago media has been brutal on new head coach Matt Nagy.  But Nagy manned up and took a large brunt of the blame for his play calling in the second half of the game against the Packers.  He also reiterated that the loss could be used to learn from and get better as a team.

    With his head in the right place following week one, Nagy looks to prepare his team for a visit from the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football this week.  The Seahawks will enter Soldier Field at 0-1 as well after their down to the wire loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday.  With both teams desperately seeking their first victory of the season, this game will be an indicator on two fronts.  First, seeing how the Bears respond to their crushing loss to the Packers may provide an indication of how the rest of their season will unfold.  And after their week one loss, this game will provide insight as to whether the Seahawks will be any sort of threat in a heavily contested NFC in 2018.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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



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

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


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

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

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

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


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

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

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