          The Test Facing Democratic Socialist Julia Salazar in New York      Cache   Translate Page      

For decades, the New York City Democratic machine has capitalized off of low-turnout elections to keep its members in power. However, a new generation of progressive New Yorkers is rejecting that model, arguing that mobilizing new voters can drive electoral success. As Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s shocking victory in June highlighted, this “mobilize the base” strategy can upend the political establishment.

Like Ocasio-Cortez, Julia Salazar, a 27-year-old state senate candidate, is mounting a volunteer-driven challenge to a long-time incumbent, running as an open democratic socialist and rejecting corporate money. In a city that has been confronted with a systemic housing crisis and mass displacement, many candidates from the Left see machine-affiliated incumbents as complacent and vulnerable to populist criticisms. Salazar is no different. At the heart of her campaign is a critique of her opponent’s proximity to New York real estate interests and his role in propelling a rent crisis in the district. Rent stabilization laws in New York State are up for renewal in 2019, making this a decisive election year. Among Salazar’s chief platform planks are ending vacancy decontrol and instituting universal rent stabilization.

Salazar’s opponent is 16-year incumbent Martin Dilan in New York’s 18th Senate District, which includes parts of Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Bushwick and Cypress Hill. Dilan is one of the last holdouts of the political machine of Vito Lopez, the now deceased former Brooklyn Democratic Party Chair. Lopez was a state assemblyman for 30 years. During his tenure, he turned his nonprofit, the Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizens Council, into a formidable political operation. At its height in 2010, the RBSCC held $100 million in city and state contracts and engaged in classic quid-pro-quo politics. Lopez resigned as Brooklyn Democratic Chair and Assemblyman in 2013, after facing highly credible sexual harassment allegations. Dilan and his son, Councilman Erik Dilan, were among the largest beneficiaries of Lopez’s machine, funneling taxpayer money to RBSCC in exchange for political support.

But Lopez’s machine is no more, and there are strong reasons to see strength behind Salazar’s challenge. In 2014, and again in 2016, activist Debbie Medina mounted spirited challenges against Dilan’s proximity to real-estate interests and his failure to effectively respond to skyrocketing rents. However, the summer before the September 2016 primary, child abuse allegations surfaced against Medina. Despite losing critical endorsements and suffering from a crippling deficit of volunteers, Medina still won nearly 41 percent of the vote.

Clearly, voters in the 18th District are open to change. The question is whether Julia Salazar can capitalize on it.

Past under scrutiny

Salazar’s personal biography has come under scrutiny in recent weeks. Her identity as an immigrant, her assertions of growing up working-class and her Judaism have all been questioned, revealing a complex series of accounts from the candidate that could be characterized as everything from deliberately misleading statements to forgivable lapses of judgment. It was additionally revealed that she was previously a leader in right-wing activism at Columbia University, and that she was questioned over impersonating a family friend to access their financial information. As with many questions of personal identity, the story is not entirely black and white.

While Salazar’s website referred to the candidate as a “proud immigrant,” in August it was revealed that she was actually born in Miami, Fla., though she traveled back and forth between the United States and Colombia as a child. Salazar says she “never intended to misrepresent my personal narrative or my immigration status,” and that while several outlets, and even she herself, had made reference to her immigrant status, her statements were the product of imprecise early childhood memories and a strong identification with Colombia and her father’s family. She expressed regret that she hadn’t more thoroughly interrogated her memories as she began to run for public office, saying that “when I set out to run for State Senate I wasn’t critically thinking about my biography, specifically what has been challenged in my early childhood.”

Her early childhood has come under scrutiny from another angle: her class status. She has positioned herself as coming from a working-class background. The first time we talked she described how her economic conditions are foundational to her politics. However, her father worked as a pilot, and her brother has strongly contested her narrative of a working-class upbringing. Salazar admits that her early childhood, until age six, when her parents separated, was not one of economic uncertainty. However, she told me that after the separation, her father paid child support inconsistently at best, and the family relied on Social Security once he became disabled. She said that her mother had to return to college and made $17,000 dollars in one year while raising two children, and that her family’s “economic status varied greatly throughout my upbringing. The background that my parents came from, paired with the financial experience I had in elementary school or middle school are very safe to describe as working class.”

She says that “the lines aren’t fixed when it comes to class status. But when I talk about having working-class or middle-class experience, I mean that I understand the financial insecurity that people in my district face.” She says that “it’s not helpful or meaningful to debate whether I was poor,” but rather that her campaign is “about building solidarity with people who have to work for a living with families that know that if someone gets sick they could lose their home.” Salazar claims that class isn’t a rigid identity, but that it varies with economic status, and the combination of financial precarity and security in her upbringing complicates discussions of her class.

Ultimately, she believes that “voters are more concerned with my record as an advocate and my ability to fight for constituents.”

Which is why her history as a right-wing college activist bears addressing. After first registering as a Republican in Florida in 2008, Salazar says that after moving to New York she intended to register as an Independent but instead accidentally registering for the state’s Independence Party.

At Columbia University, she was involved with both pro-Israel and pro-life activism. Columbia is where she embraced the Jewish faith, which she says was spurred on by the death of her father, who “had made allusions to a Sephardic surname.” Her integration in Jewish life at Columbia, through organizations like Challah for Hunger and Hillel, encouraged her to visit Israel. The details of her trip have also been a source of controversy about her Jewish identity, as the trip was planned by Christians United for Israel rather than a Jewish organization. Nevertheless, she cites her visit to Israel, in 2012, and seeing the separation barrier particularly, as disabusing her of her firm pro-Israel stance. Being “very disturbed by the violence I saw there,” she says she made “a significant decision to reject pro-Israel advocacy.”

She described her experience in pro-life activism, with Columbia Right to Life, as echoing her other right-wing commitments. Her allegiance was shifted in the controversy around the creation of a Columbia abortion fund, which every student would pay into as part of their university-provided health plan. Salazar led the Support Pregnant Students Initiative, aiming to provide support for students who choose to keep their pregnancy. After she published an op-ed in the Columbia Spectator arguing her position, she was confronted by a number of close friends who, through a series of “very hard conversations,” led her to “realize I was deeply miseducated and wrong about abortion.”

Moving left

When asked whys he hadn’t made her political evolution part of her campaign story, Salazar says she was more focused on the community that had encouraged her to run for office, and that she “didn’t think about my own narrative so much and my own evolution.”

As an outgrowth of her political evolution, Salazar helped organize a rent strike against an abusive and absent landlord during her junior year at Columbia. She and her fellow tenants took their landlord to court and won. Her victory, though, was fleeting: when her lease ended a few months later, her landlord declined to renew it. Accordingly, the event holds two meanings for her: while “it was empowering to see how people without law degrees, without any institutional power were able to fight management and win,” she “was still being displaced. It was a very vivid example of the need to fight for systemic changes to systemic problems.”

Salazar says that experience helped propel her run for office.

When we spoke the first time, Salazar expressed how she was “tired of having to ask the same elected officials over and over again to do the right thing.” Her work in Albany and New York City, along with the support of her community and fellow organizers, convinced her that the solution wasn’t bird-dogging her representatives, but replacing them.

Changing landscape

Julia Salazar’s campaign is just one hint that change may be on the horizon in the New York State Senate. Members of the Independent Democratic Conference, (IDC) a group of Democratic senators who caucused with Republicans for the past eight years, are appearing increasingly weak in the face of strong primary challenges. And, if he wins reelection, Gov. Andrew Cuomo may find himself between a rock and a hard place come 2019.

According to Bill Lipton, the New York State Director of the Working Families Party, a progressive, or even a Democratic majority in the state senate is just what Cuomo has been trying to avoid. “Andrew Cuomo has spent the last eight years doing everything he can to keep progressives out of power in Albany—from allowing the Senate Republicans to gerrymander their own districts after promising repeatedly not to, to refusing to campaign for Senate Democrats, to helping the IDC steal the Democratic majority away in 2012, to fostering division between IDC and the Democratic caucus.” This arrangement has allowed Cuomo to act as the power broker in the state senate while both helping block progressive legislation and retaining his Democratic credentials.

Lipton claims Cuomo has utilized this arrangement to masquerade as a progressive while keeping legislative threats to his moneyed friends dead in the water, all the while joking to Senate Republicans about how little he supports Democratic candidates. That Cuomo has managed to build one of the largest campaign war chests in the country through corporate donations speaks to the immense wealth that this arrangement has granted. Lipton says real estate is among the chief interests that pay into this racket: “Real estate is to New York what coal is to West Virginia—the lifeblood of oligarchy.”

Housing crisis

It may be difficult for many residents of the 18th District to square their soaring rents with the $200,000 in real estate money Sen. Dilan has raised during his tenure in office, especially in a district ravaged by pro-real estate legislation and ensuing gentrification. Dilan’s vote has been instrumental in both implementing vacancy decontrol in 1994 as a city councilman, and defusing attempts to repeal the law in 2010 as a state senator. Vacancy decontrol, which allows landlords to freely raise the rent on vacant rent-stabilized units, is at the center of the city-wide housing crisis. According to Salazar, the 18th District alone loses tens of thousands of rent stabilized and controlled units every year.

And considering the state of New York City’s rent laws, which are set on the state level, that isn’t surprising. Once rent on an apartment reaches $2,733.75, landlords can “free” a unit from its rent-stabilized status and instead charge market rates.

There are two main ways that landlords jack up the rent: when a renovation is made owners are allowed a commensurate increase in rent, and the rent can be raised when a tenant moves out. In practice, both of these regulations produce perverse incentives. In the first case, landlords are given very little oversight when reporting the added value of a renovation, meaning they often make small improvements while disproportionately increasing rent. As for the second, landlords are incentivized to rent to short-term tenants, like college students and young people who don’t have ties to the neighborhood, and to harass their rent-stabilized tenants.

The scale of tenant abuse is staggering: A New York Times investigation found stories of landlords who punched holes in the roofs and walls of occupied rent-controlled units, bombarded tenants with eviction suits and harassed them with loud construction. The investigation discovered that the agencies responsible for regulation were “fractionalized, divided among three city and state agencies” and “essentially passive.” This regulatory environment has had devastating impacts on the 18th District. In Bushwick, a family living on the median yearly income, just over $42,000, would have to spend more than 60 percent of their income to afford the average rent of a two-bedroom unit. In Williamsburg, that number is 65 percent.

While Dilan argues that he never thought his vote would come to harm his own constituents, Jennifer Lenow, a member of NYC-DSA’s organizing committee for the Brooklyn Housing Working Group, says that Dilan’s “thousands and thousands from real estate speaks louder than his rhetoric.”

Salazar has been endorsed by the New York City chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, U.S. Rep. Nydia Velazquez and City Council Member Antonio Reynoso, as well as Cynthia Nixon and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Michael Kinnucan, Salazar’s Deputy Campaign Director, is optimistic about her chances, citing the broad dissatisfaction with the political status quo, the support of local activist groups Make the Road Action and New York Communities for Change, and “one of the largest volunteer ground-organizations in the city.”

Polling shows state-wide enthusiasm for large-scale investment in public housing, signaling that New Yorkers would look favorably upon a more proactive approach to confronting the state’s housing crisis.

As part of their New Progressive Agenda Project, Civis Analytics, a data analytics firm, and the think tank Data for Progress (where I am a fellow) have shown that 59 percent of likely 2018 voters in New York support billions of dollars in investment in public housing, even after hearing Republican arguments against it and being presented with an explicit tax pay-for through tax hikes. “These numbers are pretty consistent with the very high levels of support we’ve seen for public housing ballot measures in cities like Portland and Seattle,” says David Shor, head of data science at Civis Analytics’ political practice.

Persona and policy

Salazar’s controversies, meanwhile, have continued in recent days. On September 6, allegations of an affair with former New York Mets player Keith Hernandez and an attempt to impersonate his then-estranged, now divorced wife, Kai, have come to light. Salazar had been family friends with Hernandez, and was arrested for, but ultimately not charged with, the felony impersonation of Kai. According to Salazar’s statement, the lawsuit was entirely the product of a vengeful ex-wife who had gone so far as to impersonate Salazar on the phone in an attempt to frame her for illegally accessing her finances. Kai’s motive, according to Salazar, was that while house-sitting at Kai’s request Salazar had found “a lot of drugs, syringes, and several guns.” Salazar says that after calling Keith and describing the condition of the house, he, along with local police came to document the scene. The next year she was called by local police and interrogated for allegedly impersonating Kai. After not being charged, in 2013, Salazar sued Kai Hernandez for damages and the two parties reached a settlement in 2017.

When asked for comment about the controversies surrounding Salazar, Martin Dilan’s spokesman Bob Liff said that while “Marty has been a progressive and stable champion for residents of the 18th district, his opponent will have to speak for herself.”

A victory by Salazar’s insurgent campaign would offer even more proof that the future of the Democratic Party is multi-racial, decidedly left, community-driven and not beholden to corporate interests. However, the narrative surrounding her has become thick with controversy, misrepresentation and outright lies. While it is quite possible, as many of Salazar’s supporters claim, that the candidate has been victim to a right-wing smear campaign, there remain legitimate questions about how she has publicly presented herself throughout her campaign.

In a district whose neighborhoods are synonymous with gentrification, the question facing voters in the 18th is this: To what extent is representative politics about personality, and to what extent is it about policy? Thursday’s election will help provide an answer.

          “I Am Native” Film Honors SPS Native American Students and Staff      Cache   Translate Page      
From SPS Communications:
“I am Princess. I am Crow, and I am Seattle Public Schools.” This is the self-introduction from high school student Princess, one of the featured students in the short film, “I Am Native.”

At the Sept. 5 Seattle School Board meeting, Gail Morris, Native American Education program manager and Stacia Hawkinson, Native Education consulting teacher, debuted the short film, which showcases Native Seattle Public School high school students and staff sharing their stories, hopes, and dreams for their future.

“This film was made to affirm and honor Native American students in SPS, and to create identity safety, as many Native students feel invisible in their schools, here and across the nation,” shares Morris.


Football captains, academic scholars, accomplished pianists, basketball players, track athletes – “I Am Native” shines a light on SPS Native students balancing their academics, extracurriculars, and cultures. Seattle Public Schools recognizes that students bring their whole selves into the classroom and is committed to creating spaces that value students’ stories.

Within Seattle Public Schools, approximately 1,600 students identify as Native American with at least 200 Tribes represented by students throughout the district.

“We have many Native students that are doing exceptionally well in SPS, and we want to share the pride we have in them with a broader audience, through this beautiful film,” Morris says.

Chief Sealth High School offers the Šǝqačib* (meaning raising of hands) class led by Native Education teacher, Boo Balkan Foster. Through the Title VI Huchoosedah Indian Education Program, the class provides a welcoming environment, fostering identity safety and promoting academic achievement. Šǝqačib offers cultural enrichment activities, academic tutoring, and access to resources provided through community partners.

“Everything that we do in this classroom, in Šǝqačib, is to lift up our students,” Foster says in the film.

In addition to supporting students and their families, Seattle Public Schools’ Native Education Department provides opportunities for educators to increase their understanding of authentic Native history; past and present, through “Since Time Immemorial” curriculum, professional development sessions, co-teach lessons, and consulting services. The Since Time Immemorial curriculum, mandated by the state of Washington SB 5433, integrates history and perspectives of Native people into existing curriculum.

Superintendent Denise Juneau, featured in the “I Am Native” film, spoke to the personal stories and cultural wealth Native students shared in the piece, “They are the next leaders of Seattle and for our future.”

Seattle Public Schools strives to provide a positive academic and cultural K-12 experience for all students. To further eliminate opportunity gaps, the district has increased efforts to expand and improve ethnic studies for all students in Seattle Public Schools.

Today we’re dropping “ChaseJarvisRAW: Aspen/Snowmass Behind the Scenes” timed to coincide with the launch of the campaign in action sports magazines worldwide. We’re also sharing those ads below (See below for a few examples with the original photos) before they land in magazines and on billboards worldwide. As is always the case with a project of this scope, the story behind the final imagery is something I enjoy sharing via the photos or videos themselves. Last March, we rolled into Aspen with a fast-n-light crew of six of my Seattle-based team to join Aspen’s marketing + media teams and their creative agency […]

The post Photoshoots with Flying Cameras, Bulldozers & World Class Athletes [plus Other Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Antics from my Aspen Campaign] appeared first on Chase Jarvis Photography.

Guide to Condition of Vintage Clothing:
Mint: Beautiful and perfect. Possibly never worn.
Excellent: Little visible wear, lightly worn.
Very Good: Normal wear for the age of the garment.
Good: A few obvious visible flaws. Garment construction is sound and wearable.

Vintage garments have been worn and loved…most often discovered carefully stored away in an out of the way closet for many years. It is not uncommon for garments to show some signs of wear. I carefully inspect each garment to make sure that you get the most accurate and informed description possible. When needed garments are cleaned and mended. Sometimes upon close inspection previous alterations are visible. I try to restore the garment to its original form when possible. Repairs are listed in the garment description. All items are sold as is – so please ask any necessary questions prior to purchasing. If a flaw accidently escapes my inspection, please let me know as soon as possible (and before leaving feedback!) and I will be happy to help remedy the situation. My wish is that you love your vintage garment as much as its original owner!

          Conservatives Rail About Free Speech on College Campuses — But This Is the Real Threat to Our First Amendment      Cache   Translate Page      
The wealthier party "can basically win a breath-holding contest fighting in the courts."

It's a sign of the idiocy of Donald Trump-era politics that hundreds of thousands of words have been spent pushing what amounts to a hoax about "campus censorship," while genuine assaults on free speech -- especially by Trump himself, just don't attract the same amount of attention. But while the New York Times prefers to lavish attention on conservatives whose feelings are easily bruised might get, there are activists fighting genuine threats to free speech and pushing back against censorship that's far more serious than having someone scold you that racist thing you said.

Last week, a coalition of mostly left-leaning organizations — including the ACLU, Greenpeace and Human Rights Watch — joined under the banner Protect the Protest to speak out against an increasingly worrisome tactic that wealthy private interests use to squelch free speech: SLAPP suits. "SLAPP" is short for "strategic lawsuits against public participation." While there are many variations, most SLAPP actions use defamation lawsuits — or even just the threat of them — to scare journalists, activists and even private citizens from speaking out against injustice. While these lawsuits are rarely on solid legal grounds, they are nonetheless highly effective at the goal of keeping critics silent.

The typical SLAPP suit, as Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., explained last week on a press call, is filed by a wealthy corporation or individual and aimed at a smaller organization or less wealthy person. The wealthy party's suit is "designed primarily to outlast and outspend" those who are speaking out, Whitehouse said, "to go at their funding, to make them burn their resources in litigation."

The wealthier party, he added, "can basically win a breath-holding contest fighting in the courts."

No doubt the most famous of these cases was the 2016 lawsuit by former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan against the website Gawker, alleging that the site had invaded his privacy by publishing a leaked sex tape in which he allegedly appeared. While Hogan arguably had a sympathetic case on human grounds, it soon emerged that his lawsuit was the result of a multi-year SLAPP campaign waged by Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel, who was bitter that Gawker had published unflattering articles about him in the past. Thiel's efforts led to a case that was winnable — he appeared determined to destroy Gawker — but much of the time SLAPP plaintiffs aren't really interested in the legal soundness of their cases. 

"In almost all these cases, these lawsuits were never going to win," explained Trevor Timm, executive director of the Freedom of the Press Foundation. "But the problem is these powerful people and corporations don’t actually care about winning. They care about inflicting damage."

What free speech activists want is laws making it harder to sue someone for defamation without just cause. It gives the person who is being sued a chance to file a special motion for dismissal before the case can really get underway. That could help stop frivolous lawsuits before the defendant has spent too much money and could also, in many cases, discourage litigious, censorious people from bothering to sue in the first place.

The Public Participation Project has a map of the state laws protecting free speech from frivolous lawsuits, but what activists really want is a federal law. As Jeremy Rosen of the Public Participation Project argued in The Hill in 2016, "not all of the existing laws provide sufficient protection, and SLAPP plaintiffs have the ability to 'forum shop' for a state without adequate free speech protections in which to file their lawsuit," which means "legal fees from SLAPP suits can bankrupt individuals simply for exercising their First Amendment rights."

Typically, the discourse around SLAPP policy is focused on journalists and activists, who are often intimidated out of raising public awareness with lawsuits or even just the threat of lawsuit. But there's another group of people who need protection: Survivors who wish to speak out about their experiences.

“In light of the MeToo movement, when more and more women are speaking, we need to protect their rights to tell their stories," Bridget Mahoney, a former Youngstown, Ohio, news anchor who has become an advocate for survivors of domestic violence, told Salon. 

Mahoney has been outspoken about her previous marriage, which she says was abusive, and her extensive and costly efforts to get out of it. After all that, she and her daughter helped join a campaign to pass the Tina Croucher Act, an Ohio law mandating that public schools make education and resources related to "dating violence" available to students. As part of their activism, they testified in front of the Ohio state legislature and, Mahoney said, her ex-husband sued both her and their daughter for defamation based on what they shared in the testimony.

“I simply ran out of money," Mahoney said. "It created a whole level of additional trauma. We had progressed so far in healing our wounds from the past, and this just added new ones.”

Mahoney's experience is all too common. As Tyler Kingkade of Buzzfeed reported in 2017, defamation lawsuits are "a new tool in the battle over Title IX enforcement and are proving to be serious obstacles to students filing sexual misconduct complaints."

"Sometimes the mere threat of a defamation suit is enough to deter a student from going ahead with a sexual assault claim," Kingkade wrote.

Mahoney said that after she does speaking events, "women come up to me and say they’re afraid to even speak publicly, for fear of getting sued."

These lawsuits don't just affect women speaking in public, to be clear. In many cases, they are triggered simply by a woman filing a complaint with police or with an educational institution. Anti-SLAPP legislation has already been used successfully to get defamation lawsuits dismissed that were filed in response to the victim doing nothing more than calling the police.

“It’s literally re-victimization, these retaliatory lawsuits," Mahoney said. 

In defense of free speech, the Protect the Protest coalition held events early last week in multiple cities, in which activists picketed the front doors of some of the most SLAPP-friendly law firms in the country. With so much chatter in the press about "free speech," the hope is that attention can be diverted away from right-wing hoaxes and scare tactics and towards this genuine, systematic threat to free speech.

"There is no such thing as progress without protest," May Boeve, executive director of the environmental group 350.org, said in a statement. "Our climate and communities depend upon people making their voices heard."

          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.

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

The Buccaneers are heading into a season without Doug Martin in their backfield for the first time since 2011 and one of the players in the mix to pick up the playing time left behind is rookie Ronald Jones. Jones came to Tampa in the second round of this year’s draft Patrick Mahomes II Jersey (http://www.chiefscheapstore.com/patrick-mahomes-ii-jersey-cheap) , which he said left a bit of a chip on his shoulder because he hoped to come off the board in the first round. Jones said in an interview with the McKinney Courier-Gazette that he hopes to prove the Bucs “made the right decision” and aims to start that process right off the bat. “I definitely want to come in and assert myself, but I still want to take it one day at a time,” Jones said. “It’s a big jump to the big leagues. Just try to beat the guy in front of me.” Peyton Barber, Charles Sims and Jacquizz Rodgers will be Jones’ chief competition for playing time in the Tampa backfield and whoever winds up on top come September will be asked to help the Bucs offense show well while Jameis Winston serves a three-game suspension. 18. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (9-7) LAST SEASON: Pete Carroll was in unfamiliar situation of being stuck at home for playoffs. Seattle missed postseason for just second time during Carroll's tenure as rash of key injuries and lack of depth caught up with Seahawks, leading to major changes. Gone are Michael Bennett, Richard Sherman Xavier Rhodes Jersey (http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/xavier-rhodes-jersey-cheap) , and potentially Kam Chancellor and Cliff Avril, plus coaches Darrell Bevell, Tom Cable and Kris Richard. Seattle seems committed to re-establishing run game that was nonexistent last season under new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. Seahawks ranked 23rd in league running ball, putting too much offensive emphasis on QB Russell Wilson. Defensively, LB Bobby Wagner remained one of elite linebackers in NFL, but injuries exposed Seattle's defense as no longer elite. THEY NEED: DE Lawrence Guy Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/lawrence-guy-jersey-cheap) , S, DT, CB, RB, WR, QB. THEY DON'T NEED: LB Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey (http://www.packerscheapstore.com/ha-ha-clinton-dix-jersey-cheap) , K. POSSIBLE FIRST PICK: DB Minkah Fitzpatrick, Alabama; DE Harold Landry, Boston College; DE Marcus Davenport, UTSA; CB Josh Jackson, Iowa; S Derwin James, Florida State. OUTLOOK: All offseason general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll have called Seattle's overhaul retooling and not full rebuild. So Seahawks must hit in this draft. Belief is with Wilson and Wagner still in prime Tedy Bruschi Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/tedy-bruschi-jersey-cheap) , Seattle still has chance to contend soon. But there can't be drafts with more misses than hits. Seattle currently doesn't have second-day pick, very unlike Seahawks, raising likelihood of trading out of No. 18 spot. Expect Seahawks to be very aggressive in remedies for lack of second-day picks. David Johnson Jersey (http://www.officialusafootballs.com)

          The Predator Is a Janky Shot of Cosmic Slop      Cache   Translate Page      
Olivia Munn deserves better. On a few different counts. by Bobby Roberts

In 1987, writers Shane Black and Fred Dekker teamed up to create a nonsensical, ugly little adventure about a team of outcast misfits determined to kill monsters. The outcasts—and the film’s intended audience—were children.

Unfortunately, Black’s unique talents (Lethal Weapon, The Nice Guys) don’t lend well to family movies, and the resulting mess, The Monster Squad, was rightfully forgotten by everyone except the sort of snot-nosed dipshit kid who’d say, “Yeah, The Goonies was okay, but it really coulda used more casual homophobia.”

In 2018, Black and Dekker (ha!) have reunited to write a new adventure about a makeshift monster squad—but this time, instead of foul-mouthed kids, it’s foul-mouthed grown-ups, and instead of Dracula and the Wolfman (DID YOU KNOW: The Wolfman’s got nards!), it’s Predators!

What difference do 30 years and an R-rating make? None. Because The Predator is also a nonsensical, ugly misfire full of terrible ideas that would have barely been acceptable in 1987.

Now, none of the decisions in The Predator are as bad as, say, Black’s choices behind the scenes. (Casting a friend who’s a registered sex offender, not telling anyone he’s a registered sex offender—on a set containing children—and then icing out star Olivia Munn when she spoke up and got the registered sex offender deleted from the movie.)

But there are plenty of bad calls in the movie, too, like the decision to make The Predator as authentic an 1980s action flick as possible. The Predator doesn’t sample an outdated clichéd aesthetic; it is that outdated clichéd aesthetic. This is a $100 million Golan-Globus movie—an incoherent cartoon full of slop and jank drowning out the brief sparks of charm thrown by actors who deserve better (including Munn, Sterling K. Brown, and Keegan Michael Key).

The Predator is the kind of conceptual whiff that, decades ago, Black could blame on poor execution by other directors. But Black directed The Predator—now the blame is his alone. Unless your bar for clever is still set at “Wolfman’s got nards,” there’s not a lot here to make all this effort feel anything other than wasted. recommended

          The Mariners Are Getting a Sweet Deal on Their Rent and We're Going to Pay Their Bills      Cache   Translate Page      
The Mariners are getting a deal on 35,000 square feet. What we can't forget is that they actually occupy a 544,881 square-foot space. by Nathalie Graham

Rent? Never heard of it!
Rent? Never heard of it! STEPHEN BRASHEAR/GETTY IMAGES

“If you only include rent it’s a very skewed view to what we’re contributing every month,” Rebecca Hale, the Director of Public Information for the Mariners said.

This all started because, during a King County Council meeting in August, Councilmember Rod Dembowski was skeptical about the amount of rent the Mariners would be paying in their new 25-year lease.

The Mariners are asking King County to chip in $185 million to fund necessary stadium repairs. If they don’t get taxpayer money, they won’t sign the lease and will leave in five years.

The first rent from back in the 90s was in the $700,000 range. Most recently the Ms were paying $1 million. Now, as they’re negotiating the terms of this new lease and asking threatening the public to cough up some money, it’s been raised to $1.5 million.

This agreement is vastly below market value.

“Take office space for the team alone,” Dembowski said at that August meeting. “How many square feet is that? If you were to look at that alone—$1.5 million a year seems a little light.”

That’s because, according to the representative for the Public Facilities District then and Rebecca Hale now, there’s a lot more that goes into just paying the rent for the Mariners.

“If you’re talking about the rent that we pay,” Hale said, “that is only one part of what we are required to the PFD every year in annual support to Safeco Field.”

The other parts of the Mariners’ bill include $1.5 million revenue sharing with the PFD, a $3.25 million contribution to the Capital Expenditures Fund to help pay for ballpark capital needs. Plus, Hale made sure to point out, the $10 million the Mariners pay each year for upkeep. Now that that’s off the table, let’s bring it back to Dembowski’s question: How many square feet of office space do the Mariners have at Safeco Field?

Glad you asked.

Between club level administrative offices and suite level administrative offices, the Mariners have 35,135 square feet of office space.

According to CBRE Group in Seattle, a commercial real estate services and investment firm, the price for Class A office space, what the Mariners have, is rising in Seattle. Most recently, Class A office space is going for $47.06 per square foot in the downtown Seattle region. That was a $1.30 increase from just the first quarter of 2018. The rent is up $3.50 from three years ago.

All of that is just to say that premium office space is valued high and trending up in Seattle. Vacancy rates are also dropping as demand increases.

Some pretty simple math (it’s multiplication, okay) applying that figure to the Mariners' square-footage of office space shows that the Mariners’ rent is $153,453 below market value.

That’s just the office space. We’re not even taking into account THE ENTIRE BASEBALL STADIUM that they occupy. The Mariners are getting a deal on 35,000 square feet. What we can't forget is that they actually occupy a 544,881 square-foot space.

Yet, they still require public money and the public, as of now, is giving it to them.

Last week the KCC approved a referendum that gives in to the Mariners’ pleas. The county will use public money to help the Mariners patch up their supposedly worse-for-wear Safeco Field. This acquiescence, albeit $50 million less than the original asking price of $185 million, is absurd.

The KCC voted 5 to 4 in favor of the referendum. No matter the compelling public comment, or impassioned arguments posed by councilmembers, neither side was swayed. As of right now, when the KCC votes next, it will finalize whether to go forward with its current plan to give the Mariners $135 million of taxpayer money.

As Councilmember Larry Gossett pointed out, “I have not been able to find any reason that the Mariners would have to turn objectively, reasonably, or even profit-wise to the general public to have them pay.”

Where is the need? The new lease is a cakewalk for the $1.5 billion franchise. Especially when considering the additional revenue from all the profits from baseball, the money from new naming rights, and the ancillary television revenues—both local and national. They have enough money and they’re getting a pretty good deal. Just look at how much they’re paying for rent alone.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Goddammit, Michael S. Your Pan Looks Like Shit      Cache   Translate Page      
by Katie Herzog

If you read this morning's inaugural Slog AM post by newly minted Slog AM intern Michael Bell, you might have noticed something disgusting:

WTF, MICHAEL S.???
WTF, MICHAEL S.???

I have no problem with pancakes (yay gluten) but the filthy pan and the bacon within it belong to Slog AM reader Michael S. (no relation). I reached out to Michael S. to ask if he's aware of the proper method of cleaning cast iron, and he told me that, despite apparences, his bacon pan isn't actually cast iron but is a ceramic-coated pan from Target, and it's not filthy, it's just scratched to shit.

My plan to nonconsenually lecture Michael S. on the proper way to clean cast iron was foiled, but, never one to let an opportunity to be a know-it-all pass me by, I did a little digging and found out that whatever Michael is doing in the kitchen is the number one worst thing you can possibly do to a ceramic-coated pan: He's scratching it. This isn't as much of a big deal as it would be if the pan were Teflon or non-stick—scratching those bad boys release harmful chemicals and make your balls shrink and could kill you—but according to Simon, the friendly guy who answered the phone at Sur La Table Seattle, it's still not good for it, which is why Michael S. should put down the fork and pick up the bamboo spatula.

Michael has no plans—yet—to replace his ceramic pan with cast iron, but, Michael, when you are ready to make the leap, just fucking wash it. Plenty of real cooks will tell you that soap will damage your cast iron and you should use kosher salt and potatoes or some bullshit, but don't fucking listen. It's cast iron. It's not going to break. Just wash the thing and keep it plenty well-seasoned. You're welcome.

As Hurricane Florence bears down on the mid-Atlantic, the President boldly declares that the country is “ready for it.” But are we? And does Trump have any room to talk now that Puerto Rico has revised its death toll from Hurricane Maria to around 3,000? With Eli Sanders on vacation, Rich Smith asks Dan Savage and Katie Herzog to tell us how prepared we really are, and to speculate about whether we’ll ever be prepped enough.

Then, the steady state. Right after we taped the show last week, the New York Times published an anonymous op-ed from a “senior official” in the Trump administration. The writer claims that a group called “the steady state” is secretly preventing Trump from blowing up the country. Is that…good? And who wrote that damn op-ed? We’ll discuss.

Finally, a dispatch from the heart of Amazonia. The trillion-dollar company made headlines this week with a string of stories about how badly it treats its workers. Meanwhile, right here in Seattle, Amazon is one of the most visible drivers of income inequality and cultural tension. Rich and Dan talk to new Stranger staff writer Nathalie Graham about a piece she wrote in response to a new “Money Diary” entry from Refinery29, which shows readers what the city’s like from the perspective of an Amazonian making $240,000 per year. She’s living fancy free, but is she really living?

          He's Into Guys But Not Into Dick      Cache   Translate Page      
Savage Love Letter of the Day by Dan Savage

1525120010-1516999045-savage-letter-of-the-day-stamp-2018.jpg

I'm a 24-year-old mostly gay male. While I've had sexual experiences with women in the past, I find myself much more attracted to men. I only came out and started dating men when I was 20.

Lately, I've been having a hard time thinking about what turns me on in the bedroom. I've realized I really just don't like dick. I hate the smell of dicks, the taste of dicks, the look, shape and feel of dicks. The thought of giving head makes me gag (not in a good way), the few times I've tried bottoming, there was no pleasure in it for me, and the one time I tried topping I went soft immediately. That being said, I've learned to give incredible handjobs that gets the job done, but at that point I just want them to cum and be done with it. I really only get turned on when someone does things to me—like gives me head, rims me, jerks off on me, or puts me in mild bondage and jerks me off.

Obviously, this aversion to dick doesn't make my dating life too easy. I do great on first dates, but once things move to the bedroom, my reluctance to give head or have anal sex is a dealbreaker for many guys, and things end there. My question is, what is up with me? Am I just a lazy lay who needs to gain motivation to do more in bed? Recently a friend suggested that I may be asexual, but that doesn't feel right. I feel like I'm attracted to everything there is about men, all except what's between their legs. Have you heard of queer men like this?

Wish I Liked Dick

I knew there were guys like you out there—gay men who don't like dick—which is why I told HOMO that "being a gay male correlates more strongly with liking dick than it does with liking drag." I purposefully didn't tell HOMO that all gay men love dick—or even require dick.

There are, for example, gay trans men out there who weren't born with dicks and didn't have bottom surgery after transitioning—but these trans gay guys are nevertheless having tons of hot gay sex with their hot gay boyfriends, husbands, hookups, FWBs, very special guest stars, bondage subs, etc. Many of the gay cis male partners of gay trans men may like dick just fine (some may even love dick), WILD, but the absence of dick isn't a deal-breaker for them—and it stands to reason that some of them may actually prefer men without dicks.

Basically, WILD, your letter presumes that all gay men have penises and that's not the case. Have you even considered dating gay trans men? (I mean...)

Another option: I've met plenty of guys in the leather/fetish/kink scene who are into bondage and J.O. and that's it. Literally all they wanna do is tie a guy up and jack that guy off—no oral or anal desired and, in many cases, no reciprocation required.

But I haven't answered your question, WILD: What is up with you? I have no idea. You could get into therapy and unpack your issues at length and keep going on first dates with men and see if your feelings about dick change—you should do both those things, in fact. But at the same time, WILD, you should also seek out sex partners whose equipment and/or desires make them good potential lids for your particular pot. Since "into dick" is a perfectly reasonable assumption when a guy agrees to go out on a date with another guy, WILD, be upfront and honest with all the guys you date—cis, trans, kinky, whatever—and you won't find yourself in bed with guys who want or expect more than you're able to give them right now and possibly ever.

Speaking of trans: the fear-mongering about trans people doing what trans people have always done—use the appropriate public restrooms—is, as we always knew it was, complete and utter bullshit. Also highly dangerous bullshit, as I've pointed out.

          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.”


          Washington wildlife officials order killing of wolves in old Profanity Peak pack territory      Cache   Translate Page      

State wildlife officials ordered the killing of more wolves, Wednesday.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife ordered the incremental removal from a pack WDFW has dubbed the Old Profanity Territory pack.

Since September 4 members of the pack killed one calf and injured five others. The animals were on a U.S. Forest Service grazing allotment.

The wolves are inhabiting the same general area that was the range of the Profanity Peak pack.

“This is a very difficult situation, especially given the history of wolf-livestock conflict in this area,” said WDFW Director Kelly Susewind in a news release. “We are committed to working with a diversity of stakeholders in a collaborative process to seek other creative and adaptive solutions to prevent future losses of wolves and livestock.”

Wolves from the Profanity Peak pack were killed by WDFW in 2016 following documented cattle depredations.

In 2016 WDFW killed members of the Profanity Peak pack and in 2017 the agency killed members of the Sherman Pack.

Following the Sherman Pack action, a judge ruled that WDFW must wait eight court hours between the announcement of a lethal action order and the execution of the order.

In August WDFW ordered the killing of members of the Togo wolf pack. The order was temporarily blocked by two environmental groups. However, a judge ruled at the end of August that WDFW could continue.

WDFW officials said in a news release that they will start lethal removal of the Old Profanity Territory pack members mid-day Thursday.

Although Seattle-based Conservation Northwest has supported lethal removal in the past they do not support Wednesday’s decision.

“As this third conflict between wolves and livestock indicates, sufficient reduction of the potential for conflict in this specific territory in northeast Washington’s Kettle Mountain Range has not yet occurred,” said Paula Swedeen, Conservation Northwest policy director said in a news release. “We call on the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, other Wolf Advisory Group members, livestock producers and community leaders to work together towards a more sustainable approach. We are ready to roll up our sleeves to find short-term solutions other than lethal removal that keep the livestock producers whole.”

She added, “We also think it is important to take a step back to consider what it means that wolves continue to return to this area even after lethal removal. Creating a carousel of killing wolves is not our goal in supporting the protocol. Nor is seeing cattle at continued risk. We all need to urgently seek a different path here.”

The Center for Biological Diversity, an Arizona-based organization, also decried the order in a statement. The Center for Biological Diversity was one of the groups that challenged the kill order for the Togo pack in August.

“Washington officials must stop the senseless, heartless slaughter of wolves,” said Amaroq Weiss, the west coast wolf advocate for the Center for Biological Diversity in an emailed statement.

WDFW’s lethal removal policy allows killing wolves if they prey on livestock three times in a 30-day period or four times in a 10-month period. That policy was developed by WDFW and its 18-member Wolf Advisory Group, which represents the concerns of environmentalists, hunters and livestock ranchers.

The policy also stipulates that cattle producers have employed at least two proactive deterrence techniques. Lethal control is allowed in the eastern third of the state where wolves are protected by state endangered species rules. Wolves remain federally protected in the western two-thirds of the state.

Despite losses of roughly a dozen wolves a year from selective state-authorized lethal control, plus poaching, vehicle collisions and other human-related causes, Washington’s wolf population has grown each year. A minimum of 122 wolves, 22 packs and 14 successful breeding pairs was reported by the WDFW this winter.

The Old Profanity Territory pack was not included in that assessment. Wolves were documented in the area in June.

This story is developing and will be updated.

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

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

          There is nothing less appealing about the NBA than its predictability. [url=http://ww      Cache   Translate Page      
There is nothing less appealing about the NBA than its predictability. Ronnie Harrison Jaguars Jersey . At the start of any season, anyone with the slightest basketball IQ can identify roughly half-a-dozen teams that have a true chance of winning a championship. That team that no one saw coming raising the Larry OBrien Trophy at the end of the season? Well, it never happens. And while there are always surprises from year-to-year, teams that rocket up the standings over the course of a season or two without a major overhaul are rare. Its a sport where it can be a very long and hard road going from being really bad to being very good, especially if youre a team that isnt lucky enough to land a superstar, one of those players who can turn a teams fortunes almost with his presence alone. All of which makes the Toronto Raptors turnaround over the course of a little more than 12 months that much more amazing. Two seasons ago this week, the Raptors were 4-15 after 19 games. A year ago, they were 7-12. Right now, they are 15-4, best record in the Eastern Conference. Things like that just dont happen in the NBA, where success follows the obvious movement of talent around the league. The NBA is the easiest league to determine who will be good and who will be bad at the start of a season. And at the start of last season, there was no shortage of those predicting the Toronto Raptors would be very bad, and for quite a while. It would be years by the time they next made the playoffs, and by then, there would be hardly anyone from this roster still on it. Maybe Jonas Valanciunas. The Raptors would have to tank a season or two or three and hope to land one of those generational talents around whom they could build for better times. None of that happened. And yet here are the Raptors, having defied almost every rule of the universe when it comes to how the NBA works, suddenly being recognized as one of the better teams in the NBA, the best Toronto team ever, and an apparent legitimate contender to represent the East in an NBA Final next spring. Think about all the counterintuitive qualities of this team: - It went from bad to good without anyone seeing it coming - It did so over the course of essentially one season - It has no superstar player Some may be ready to suggest Kyle Lowry has become an NBA superstar, although even that notion itself is counterintuitive since NBA players rarely blossom into superstars in their late 20s. The whole thing is part genius, part accident, part chemistry and part smarts. It took luck and timing and a special group of players who dont see themselves as too good to be playing in Toronto. But somehow its worked and we continue to be treated to the kind of phenomenon that is ever so rarely witnessed in the NBA. Will Richardson Jaguars Jersey . A broadcast source said the deal is for five years. The agreement calls for a minimum of 17 regular-season games as well as the East and West Division finals being broadcast annually on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNEWS. Logan Cooke Jaguars Jersey . It was the most lopsided loss in Lakers history. Darren Collison had a team-high 24 points while starting at shooting guard for the injured Jamal Crawford. Chris Paul added 13 points and 11 assists for the Clippers, who apparently are trying to make up for decades of humiliation at the hands of the Lakers all in one season; theyve won the last two meetings by a combined 84 points. http://www.jaguarsfansclub.com/Black-DJ-...ml?cat=980 .

          Timespinner llegará a finales de mes a PS4, PS Vita y PC. Aquí tienes un nuevo tráiler del metroidvania de Chucklefish       Cache   Translate Page      

1

Han pasado más de cuatro años desde que 'Timespinner' completase su financiación en Kickstarter, pero -por fin- podemos ponerle fecha: el metroidvania de Lunar Ray Games y Chucklefish estará disponible a partir del 25 de septiembre en PS4, PS Vita y escritorios. Y, desde luego, no pinta nada mal.

Anunciado originalmente para 3DS, el estudio afincado en Seattle recupera la fórmula clásica, redondeando su propuesta con un acabado pixelado. Ahora bien, su propuesta incluye extra añadido: la habilidad de detener el tiempo se ha integrado en la jugabilidad tanto durante los combates como a la hora de resolver puzles.

Estéticamente, 'Timespinner' no oculta las referencias a juegos como la saga 'Castlevania' e incluso 'Shantae'. Algo que juega a su favor, claro. Sin embargo, también dispone de un cooperativo local para dos jugadores, ideal para enfrentarnos a sus laberintos y los enormes jefazos que nos salgan al paso.

Por su parte, el apartado sonoro también se ha cuidado para ofrecer un acabado acorde al conjunto y que cuenta con las partituras de Jeff Ball ('Tiny Barbarian DX' y violinista en 'Steven Universe')

Una fecha complicada en las consolas de Sony, sobre todo si tenemos en cuenta que ese mismo día llegará 'Hollow Knight' a PS4, pero 'Timespinner' cuenta con un reclamo añadido: es cross-buy entre PS4 y PS Vita. Y ojo, la versión de escritorios -que también saldrá el día 25- llegará a PC, Mac y Linux.

          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.

          Turns Out, Fair Housing Isn’t Always Fair      Cache   Translate Page      
NARA

It’s Wednesday, August 28, 1963 in Washington, D.C., and civil rights activist Bayard Rustin is at the podium. This is the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. It is not Rustin’s first march, nor his last, but it is, at the time, the largest in U.S. history—nearly 250,000 people strong, most of them African American. Rustin is there with the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., who speaks first. “I want to introduce now Brother Bayard Rustin, who will read the demands of the March on Washington Movement. Everyone must listen to these demands,” says King. “That is why we are here.”

Most people recall King’s “I Have a Dream” speech from that historic day, not Rustin’s call for basic civil rights for African Americans. But those demands are what drove the ensuing civil rights legislation. Two of the 10, notably, include housing—a call for comprehensive civil rights legislation that includes decent housing and an executive order that bans discrimination in all housing supported by federal funds.

By the early ’60s, efforts to end housing discrimination had sprung up all over the country. New York City went first in 1957. Colorado and California soon followed. But change, it is clear, happens slowly, in fits and starts, and not without virulent and extreme protest. People even put money on the line. Case in point: Near Seattle, a mixed-race family, the Guilmets, purchased a home in picturesque Edmonds, only to have their neighbors pool $50,000 to buy the house back. The Guilmets’ neighbors cloaked their racial fears in the language of “property value” and “property rights.”

          Recovering community: Recovery Cafe in Peaceful Valley serves up support and social connections      Cache   Translate Page      

Two years ago, Jaye James didn’t want to talk about his alcoholism or treatment. That felt like an “A” printed on his forehead, he said.

James just wanted to feel normal again, but he knew isolation and avoiding the topic was worse. A short time later, he walked into Recovery Cafe Spokane, where James said he felt at ease discussing casual topics over a lunch.

“I could talk about sports, cars and music,” said James, 53, now a recovery coach at the center. “I felt like I was part of a community again. Then, when I felt ready, I could talk about my addiction.”

Since opening in February 2017, Recovery Cafe in Peaceful Valley has served up support and social connections for people who consider themselves in a “recovery community,” said Christine McMackin, a recovery support specialist.

That includes some who are also dealing with mental health issues.

“I still fight depression and anxiety,” said McMackin, who soon will mark 10 years of being alcohol- and drug-free. “People can come here and feel safe. We’re all facing the same battles.”

A program of the Spokane nonprofit Community-Minded Enterprises, the cafe is open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, with lunch at noon. Food and other cafe services are free.

The center encourages peer-to-peer support among people at different stages in their recovery, whether they’ve been substance-free for 24 hours or 30 years, said Georgia Butler, director of recovery community services for Community-Minded Enterprises.

“When people walk in the door, we have a philosophy of radical hospitality,” Butler said. “Everyone who walks through the door is welcomed. They begin to know each others’ names. They begin to connect. They walk alongside each other.”

Just before lunch on Tuesday, Shane Richter asked for five minutes of silence as about 15 people gathered around several tables.

“You let go of distractions,” he said. “This is a time for prayer or meditation in the method best for you. I certainly appreciate you all being here.”

After that, Walter Bible walked up to get a bread bowl filled with chili before sitting down.

“I’ve actually made this place my second home,” said Bible, who told the group he recently celebrated a birthday. “This is my haven.”

People who go to Recovery Cafe Spokane agree to become members. Butler said that means a person must be at least 24-hours substance-free and attend an orientation session, along with regularly attending a weekly small group recovery circle.

Butler said the recovery circle isn’t treatment or therapy. Instead, it’s offered for people to process what they’re experiencing alongside peers. The circles are led by a trained recovery coach.

The facility currently hosts 12 recovery circles each week. A circle typically doesn’t have more than 10 people.

Recovery coaches are encouraged to lead people in processing experiences, asking people, “How are you doing? Where are you struggling? How can we help you?” Butler said.

The cafe operates its School for Recovery, with résumé and job interview support, life skills, and connections to community resources. The school invites Spokane-area guest speakers to discuss recovery at 1 p.m. each Tuesday.

Spokane’s cafe has about 100 members, Butler said.

The program is modeled after one in Seattle, which Butler visited in 2015. “Their model and peer-to-peer services was exactly what our community needed,” she said.

Recovery Cafe is all about support, but it isn’t a treatment center, said Butler, who has 32 years of recovery.

“It’s basically an alternative therapeutic community,” she said. “We accept all pathways to recovery. You could be in treatment. You could be in a 12-step recovery. You could be in a faith-based program. You could be in medical treatment, or a person in solo recovery.”

Three staff members are certified mental health peer counselors, Butler said.

Kathy Thamm, Community-Minded Enterprises’ executive director, said another benefit of the cafe model is it eliminates social isolation, which can contribute to relapse. The cafe also provides a path to accountability without a stigma, she added.

“It’s a place without judgment, which is what you need to stay in recovery,” Thamm said.

The cafe’s goal is to prevent relapses, and the support helps keep patients out of emergency rooms or from re-entering treatment, Thamm said. “That’s a cost to the health system,” she said. “We’ve had a short study done, and we’ve had no one go back into an emergency room.”

By coming in at least weekly to see people with similar struggles, Butler said, “They’re listening and talking. They begin to see there is a path for them.

“We believe the opposite of addiction is connection. Recovery for years has been isolated and anonymous, and now here in Spokane, we’ve begun to put a face on recovery.”

Part of the cafe’s coaching includes helping people access primary care doctors and urgent care facilities, she said. The cafe also partners with Eastern Washington University’s dental clinic, for members to access the Recovering Smiles oral health educational program.

The cafe holds new member orientations on the first and third Fridays of the month. Because some members have landed jobs and can’t come during regular hours, program operators hope to expand cafe hours later this year to include one evening and one Saturday, Butler said.

Part of recovery is learning how to live in a community again, Butler said.

“That’s difficult,” she said. “They can come and talk here about what their triggers are to relapses, how they’re feeling, their struggles, their successes.

“It’s not just the negatives that can cause relapse, so can the good things, if you’re not used to a lot of good things happening. That can be scary too.”

CBJ speaks the truth.  It is terrible.  There are a few folks on the other side of California that are also buying (but not reallly selling) cars as an at-home dealership.  Their fleet sits forever.  **PRO TIP***   The City of Seattle has a mobile app (not sure if can be done online, but I assume so) called Find It Fix It.  It is great.  You can report all sorts of things, from cars parked for long periods of time, to potholes, garbage, etc.  And they are proactive about getting back to you if you leave an e mail address.  I believe you can be anonymous as well.  Worth a look.

          The 23 Best Concerts to See in Portland: September 13-26      Cache   Translate Page      
From Hand Habits to Kneebody to Toe. by The Mercury Music Experts Dream Team™

Angel Olsen
Angel Olsen’s voice is like a flash flood—it’s easy to get swept up in the emotion behind her whispered devotions and existentially aching sighs. Nobody else can do what she does (the only worthy comparison is probably the late Patsy Cline). See Olsen perform songs from Phases, the collection of B-sides and rarities she released last year, at her second Portland show of the Tiny Dreams Solo Tour. (Thurs Sept 13, 8 pm, Newmark Theatre, 1111 SW Broadway, $31-41; w/Hand Habits) CIARA DOLAN

No Kind of Rider, Sama Dams, Slow Corpse
Savage Coast, the debut album from No Kind of Rider, has been a long time coming. The band has been playing around Portland for the better part of a decade, slowly perfecting a sound that connects vintage shoegaze pop, sultry indie rock, and lush electronica. The theme of Savage Coast seems to be finding ways of letting go, not just of a bad relationship or the spirit of a beloved family member, but of an entire way of being. This is the music of reinvention and refocusing, a soundtrack to setting one’s hopeful eyes on the horizon. (Thurs Sept 13, Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison) ROBERT HAM

Greta Van Fleet, Dorothy
The much-ballyhooed “death” of rock has led to an unusual side effect: As shaggy dudes playing loud guitars recede from the spotlight, the few remaining rock acts have grown even more precious to the diehards. This explains the rapid rise of Greta Van Fleet, a Michigan quartet of three brothers and one friend who are selling out large halls before they’ve even released a full-length album (and before two of the members have reached legal drinking age). A listen to either of GVF’s startlingly competent EPs, Black Smoke Rising and From the Fires, reveals why: These kids are hidebound devotees to the Orthodox Church of Led Zeppelin, replicating that band’s swing, swagger, and screeching vocals with an almost astonishing amount of confidence. They’ve gained acclaim for a powerful live show, and with their much anticipated debut album due in October, Greta Van Fleet are poised to become absolutely massive. When they do, enjoy their riffs, which really are good—but just be ready to ignore the countless think-pieces that say, “Rock is back!” (Fri Sept 14, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1037 SW Broadway) NED LANNAMANN

Kali Uchis, Gabriel Garzón-Montano
Kali Uchis is teetering on the brink of pop super stardom. The Colombian American singer/songwriter has toured with Lana del Rey and cultivated a following of loyal stans ever since releasing her 2015 Por Vida EP. In April, Uchis dropped her debut LP Isolation, and it’s pretty much perfect—she jumps easily from R&B to garage rock to reggaetón, with features from artists like Bootsy Collins, Reykon, and Tyler, the Creator. Uchis’ music videos, which have millions of YouTube views, typically involve a lot of bubblegum-pink (her pink hairdo, a pink sunset) and driving down lonely roads in retro roadsters. (Fri Sept 14, Roseland, 8 NW 6th) ISABEL LYNDON

Murder by Death, William Elliott Whitmore
Murder by Death and William Elliott Whitmore have come full circle. Back in 2000, Whitmore performed for the first time with a brand-new band, Little Joe Gould, led by the young vocalist/guitarist Adam Turla and cellist Sarah Balliet, in a basement in Bloomington, Indiana. Little Joe Gould would eventually change their name to Murder by Death, and the two musicians embarked on multiple tours together. They found themselves once again sharing the road, and now a label, as both artists released albums this year on the venerable Bloodshot Records. MBD’s eighth LP, The Other Shore, finds them writhing in their literary gothic-folk, this time under the guise of a space-western epic taking place on a post-apocalyptic planet. Meanwhile, Whitmore’s seventh record, Kilonova, rides the singer/songwriter’s far-reaching baritone vocals and swampy Americana into new and exciting realms. (Sat Sept 15, Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell) RYAN J. PRADO

Blood Orange
Though Dev Hynes has written and produced hits for the likes of Solange, Florence and the Machine, Kylie Minogue, and Carly Rae Jepsen, his solo work as Blood Orange has never been all that concerned with chart-topping singles. Over seven years and three albums, Hynes used the Blood Orange moniker to delve into deeper, more delicate, and more personal material. His new record Negro Swan explores themes like the ongoing anxieties of queer and trans folks and people of color, surviving childhood trauma, and what he defines as “Black depression.” Negro Swan is a meditative journey through Hynes’ most intimate thoughts, sung over minimalist drum beats, mellow guitar riffs, and spaced-out keys. It’s less an album of independent and disjointed singles—as so many hip-hop and R&B albums are today—as it is one continuous and slowly unspooling narrative. Lacking such straightforward bops as Freetown Sound’s “Best to You” or Cupid Deluxe’s “You’re Not Good Enough,” Negro Swan requires more patience than previous Blood Orange albums, and perhaps more than a couple of front-to-back listens. Its progressive R&B and lush bedroom pop is more ruminative than Hynes’ previous efforts, but the result is beautiful, haunting, and brutally honest. With guest appearances by Tei Shi, A$AP Rocky, Project Pat, and Diddy (who lets himself be surprisingly candid), the most important and frequent guest is transgender activist Janet Mock, whose spoken interludes are heard throughout the album, propelling the narrative forward to a triumphant coda. (Sun Sept 16, Roseland, 8 NW 6th, $29.50-39.50) SANTI ELIJAH HOLLEY

The Zombies, Liz Brasher
Sorry, youngbloods: The Zombies are responsible for some of the best live shows I’ve ever seen. The aging group, which formed in the 1960s and was responsible for some of the greatest pop songs of that decade (“She’s Not There,” “This Will Be Our Year”), reunited around vocalist Colin Blunstone and keyboardist/songwriter/vocalist Rod Argent, and this new edition of the Zombies has been an ongoing concern for more than a decade now. In 2015, they played the entirety of their perfect 1968 album Odessey and Oracle at Revolution Hall, and it was mind-blowingly great, bringing tears and delight to the entire auditorium; Blunstone’s gorgeously smoky voice hadn’t aged a day. Expect some of that same magic tonight—although sadly, this time they’ll be without veteran bassist Jim Rodford (the Kinks, Argent), who passed away earlier this year. (Mon Sept 17, Revolution Hall, 1300 SE Stark) NED LANNAMANN

Hatchie, Wildhoney
Sugar & Spice, the flawless debut EP from dream-pop purveyor Hatchie—AKA Brisbane, Australia’s Harriette Pilbeam—is a gorgeous, gossamer thing, filled with weightless stardust melodies and cozy-blanket hooks that make each track utterly irresistible. This is Hatchie’s first-ever Portland show, so get ready to be infatuated. (Wed Sept 19, 9 pm, Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, $13-15; w/Wildhoney) NED LANNAMANN

Liz Phair, Speedy Ortiz
Exile in Guyville’s 25th anniversary has given the world a good excuse to revisit Liz Phair’s early streak of wicked genius, but this year also marks the 20th anniversary of Whitechocolatespaceegg, an essential record that splits the difference between Phair’s ’90s intensity and ’00s sheen. Nothing in the collected musical works of humankind is quite as lethal as “Fuck and Run” or “Flower” on Phair’s third LP. What Whitechocolatespaceegg does have is Phair’s greatest pop triumph (“Polyester Bride”) as well as a handful of songs (“Go on Ahead,” “Girls’ Room,” “Perfect World”) that recapture the magic of Guyville’s standout tracks. Let’s hope they get some love tonight. (Wed Sept 19, Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside) CHRIS STAMM

Toe
Japanese band Toe is all about interlocking precision, and while their music doesn’t quite fall in the category of math rock, that’s probably the closest descriptor for their rigid but never robotic jams. Toe’s newest album, That’s Another Story, collects various odds and ends from over the years with an emphasis on remixes, revealing something pretty fascinating in the process. By stripping the band’s exacting musical interplay down to its fundamental sounds and building it back up again, these remixes have found common ground between loop-based electronic music and the hypnotic repetition of Toe’s propulsive sound. (Wed Sept 19, Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell) NED LANNAMANN

Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears, Paul Cherry
On their last record, 2017’s Backlash, Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears’ soulful, infectious blues met riff-heavy funk, with the focus shifting from Lewis’ noted fretwork to peppy brass and a steady rhythmic pocket, as heard on the excellent “Global.” As evidenced by their status as veterans of pretty much every major American music festival, the band is known for engaging performances that orbit around Lewis’ unhinged vocal delivery that sounds inspired by the likes of Howlin’ Wolf and James Brown. It’s the kind of guitar hero-centric act that’s not unlike the unifying allure of Jimi Hendrix or Lenny Kravitz (if that’s your thing). Their sixth studio LP, The Difference Between You and Me, is due out this month. (Thurs Sept 20, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) RYAN J. PRADO

John Prine, Todd Snider
The Tree of Forgiveness is John Prine’s first collection of new material in over a decade, and it contains some of the legendary folksinger/songwriter’s most playful tunes to date. At 71, Prine doesn’t spend too much time mulling over the end of life and the great beyond, but when he does, it’s with a twinkle in his eye: On the excellent closing track “When I Get to Heaven,” he sings of being reunited with family and smoking “a cigarette that’s nine miles long” amid a chorus of kazoos, saloon piano, and hooting backup singers. The Tree of Forgiveness is sweet, silly, and a little sad, meaning it’s the perfect kind of John Prine record. (Fri Sept 21, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1037 SW Broadway) CIARA DOLAN

The Avett Brothers
Back in July, the Avett Brothers postponed the third of three consecutive shows they were scheduled to play at the Edgefield after a man claiming to be an out-of-state police officer entered the venue with a gun and disappeared into the crowd. Though unnerving, nothing came of the incident, and the beloved North Carolinian folk rockers made good on their promise to reschedule the cancelled concert—tonight they’ll perform to a sold-out Edgefield audience to close out the final day of summer. (Fri Sept 21, Edgefield, 2126 SW Halsey, Troutdale) CIARA DOLAN

Slothrust, Summer Cannibals
Slothrust’s extraordinary new LP, The Pact, is a wild beast of a record, alive with sadness, fear, defiance, and joy. The album plays like a tour of night’s most tender zones, those places that hum with thoughts that don’t belong in the light. On “The Haunting,” the album’s centerpiece and one of 2018’s best songs, singer/guitarist Leah Wellbaum paints a picture of existential uncertainty that could double as a band motto: “Not sure if I am asleep or awake, so I’ll treat this body like I think that it’s a fake and see how much it can take.” We’ve all been to that terrible in-between—Slothrust has just figured out how to thrive there. (Fri Sept 21, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) CHRIS STAMM

The Mattson 2, Astronauts Etc.
If, as a band, you decide to cover John Coltrane’s landmark 1965 jazz album A Love Supreme, you’re either daringly confident in your ability to bring something new or interesting to one of the greatest pieces of music ever composed, or you just love being in way over your head. Most fall into the latter category, but the Mattson 2 qualify as the former. On The Mattson 2 Play “A Love Supreme,” the SoCal jazz duo—percussionist Jonathan Mattson and guitarist Jared Mattson, who are identical twins—rework Coltrane’s masterpiece with verve and virtuosity, giving familiar tunes an update that’s electrifying, psychedelic, refreshingly modern, and respectful at the same time. Sharing tonight’s bill (and backed by the Mattsons) is singer/songwriter Astronauts, Etc., AKA Anthony Ferraro, a classically trained pianist whose new album Living in Symbol is a deliciously unhurried set of soulful dream-pop jams. (Sat Sept 22, Jack London Revue, 529 SW 4th) BEN SALMON

Johnny Marr, Belle Game
It’s a shame that Johnny Marr sometimes gets overshadowed by the headline-grabbing nonsense that pours from Morrissey’s mouth these days. Over the past five years, the former Smiths guitarist has released a string of striking pop records that recall the shimmer of his former band’s best album, 1987’s Strangeways, Here We Come. Marr’s new LP Call the Comet is no different, with jangly hooks for days and lyrics that address the caustic political climate we’re currently experiencing by painting a kinder, more empathetic world. Marr has played sideman to artists like Neil Finn, The The, Brian Eno, Billy Bragg, and Modest Mouse. Think about that: The writer of some of the greatest pop songs of all time took a backseat for years before releasing his first solo record. That says as much about Marr as the fact that such incredible musicians sought him out. (Sat Sept 22, Roseland, 8 NW 6th) MARK LORE

STRFKR
STRFKR: It’s short for Starfucker. At one time, the name gave Josh Hodges & Co. a little trouble. They changed it up, but in the end they always returned to their Starfucker source. Touring to celebrate the 10-year-anniversary of their first release, the self-titled album Starfucker, STRFKR wants nothing more than to play their dancey idiosyncratic pop-synth songs as many times as we’ll let them. I’ve got nothing but love for this crew. (Sat Sept 22, 9 pm, Sun Sept 23, 4:30 & 9 pm; Doug Fir, 830 NE Burnside, $25.50-30, Sun 4:30 pm show all-ages) SUZETTE SMITH

Big John Bates: Noirchestra, Stoned Evergreen Travelers
With their new LP Psychedelic Bloodbath, Seattle band Stoned Evergreen Travelers present something wholly unclassifiable. Stand-up bass and fiddle give the album the swagger and bounce of a drunken cowboy—it’s dirty, confident, unpredictable, and potentially dangerous. At times it sounds like stripped-down Americana or rockabilly, but the gruff vocals and crunchy guitar licks add an unexpected edge. The fiddle, present on every track, sounds like it should be coming from the middle of a circle of covered wagons, but it slithers and drips with enough reverb to be completely spooky. Stoned Evergreen Travelers are like everything and nothing you’ve ever heard before. (Sun Sept 23, Dante’s, 350 W Burnside) ARIS HUNTER WALES

Jonathan Wilson, William Tyler
Don’t make the mistake of relegating Jonathan Wilson to the position of second banana: Despite playing in the backing band for Roger Waters—and singing the David Gilmour parts—and serving as producer for Father John Misty, Conor Oberst, and others, Wilson’s solo work is a bounty of far-out delights. All three of his albums for Bella Union are epic double-disc affairs, and explore the far-ranging facets of psychedelic music. The newest, Rare Birds, turns away from the laidback caterpillar smoke-ring sounds of its predecessors in favor of a more yacht-pop vibe with new-age oriented material (to give you an idea, the guest credits include Lana Del Rey and Laraaji). Live, Wilson is in command of truly transporting sound; expect a crack band of seasoned vets and lengthy jam sections. (Mon Sept 24, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) NED LANNAMANN

Miguel, DVSN
Soul singer Miguel’s 2017 album War & Leisure is inspired by psychedelia and luminaries like Prince, Marvin Gaye, and Lenny Kravitz with lots of heavy-reverb guitar and his powerful, soul-drenched vocals. Miguel already showcased the album earlier this year, kicking off a tour leg in Portland back in February. In June, the singer announced this 26-date leg, “The Ascension” North American tour with Canadian R&B duo DVSN. This time, fans can shriek over renditions of “The Thrill,” “Pineapple Skies,” and “Pussy Is Mine,” in the glowy, comfy confines of the Schnitz. (Tues Sept 25, 8 pm, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1037 SW Broadway, $47-97, all ages; w/DVSN) JENNI MOORE

DakhaBrakha
With their matching red-and-black outfits and tall wool hats, DakhaBrakha hypnotized the crowds at Pickathon last month with bewitching sets centered around the chants of Olena Tsybulska, Iryna Kovalenko, and Nina Harenetska. Though they’ve got roots in Ukranian folk, DakhaBrakha draws from a hodge-podge of styles that’s anchored by warbling melodies and percussive elements like goblet drum and table, along with the dissonant sounds of didgeridoo and cajón. The group’s avant-garde aesthetic and self-described “ethno-chaos” sound have attracted curious audiences the world over, and this stop at the Aladdin Theater is sure to be a spectacle of otherworldly proportions. (Tues Sept 25, Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie) RYAN J. PRADO

Kneebody, Donny McCaslin
Saxophonist Donny McCaslin has been riding a wave of welcome attention after his well-honed ensemble was chosen to be the backing band for David Bowie’s final album Blackstar. But the acclaim hasn’t gone to his head, as evidenced by his last Portland appearance, when he and his band soared through a two-hour set of modern jazz punctuated by Mark Linder’s keyboard filigrees and an intuitive rhythm section. Their work will be a fine complement to Kneebody, a fluid ensemble that faces forward as jazz, but is nimble enough to work with the colors of electronica, contemporary classical, and funk. (Tues Sept 25, Star Theater, 13 NW 6th) ROBERT HAM

Natalie Prass, Stella Donnelly
Natalie Prass had a sophomore album written and ready to record. It was an important one, too—a follow-up to her 2015 self-titled debut, a collection of lush and personal songs that earned her rave reviews and prominent placements on several lists of that year’s best albums. But then the 2016 presidential election happened, which threw her for a loop. Prass scrapped that sophomore effort and started working on a new one, and the result is The Future and the Past, a confidently funky record that echoes ’70s-era Diana Ross and ’80s-era Janet Jackson and courses with politically charged energy. Prass wastes no time getting into it, either: “What is truth and what is fear? What is lying to a cheat?” she sings on “Oh My,” the album’s snappy opening track. “And what is freedom for the free?” Maybe someday we’ll hear that album Prass scrapped, but for now, The Future and the Past sounds like the one she needed to make... and the one we needed to hear.

          Thorns Head to Playoffs—Here are the Players to Watch!      Cache   Translate Page      
by Erin O'Regan

For the third season in a row, the Portland Thorns—who have been more in sync than Justin Timberlake and Joey Fatone—are heading into another playoff scenario this month... but this time? WE GOT OURSELVES A HOMETOWN THROWDOWN! The Thorns are locked and loaded for a playoff match against Northwest rival the Seattle Reign in Portland on Saturday, September 15 at HIGH NOON. But all eyes are on the North Carolina Courage, who are currently sitting at the top of the table for playoff spots. North Carolina has been a force to be reckoned with this season—dominating the league with only one loss the entire year. And the Courage certainly have something to prove here in Portland—since the Thorns (ahem) defeated the Courage to win the 2017 NWSL Championship. HOLLA FOR YOUR LADIES IN RED!

WHO TO WATCH

If you want to see my face contort as if I were doing advanced trig, just ask me who my favorite Thorns player is. (Bzzzt! CANNOT COMPUTE! Bzzzt!) This team is deep with brand new players and experienced talent, but their individual strengths are only activated when they’re on the field together. They’re like the X-Men... only they’re women, there are 23 of them, and they aren’t fictitious. Nonetheless, here are three of my favs that you should keep an eye on during the coming playoffs AND BEYOND.

Lindsey Horan (AKA “The Great Horan”)

This lady is an unstoppable midfielder for the Thorns as well as the US Women’s National team. Keep an eye on her during corner and free kicks. Teams try their best to cover her, but during set pieces she still manages to get her head on the ball and into the back of the net.

Christine Sinclair (AKA Sinc, AKA the Canadian Sensation Rockin’ the PDX Nation, AKA THE FACE OF EXPERIENCE, PATIENCE, AND COMPETITIVE SMARTS)

Sinclair has showered this city with her talents since her college days at the University of Portland. Positioned as a forward, there’s a lot to love here: She’s (A) got an unmatchable talent to recognize opportunities that less experienced players don’t see coming; (B) creating opportunities and getting the ball where it needs to be—as in, scoring position; (C) the captain of both the Thorns and the Canadian National team; and most importantly (D) level-headed and patient, but watch out for those flashes of fiery competitiveness when she’s after a win. You old-timers know this as THE EYE OF THE TIGER!

Tobin Heath (AKA Tobes-Lerone, AKA Jedi Master)

This woman is a stone-faced killer and a MASTER when it comes to fast, furious footwork. Through exemplary ball control, Heath has the power to speed up and slow down the game. Her corner and free kicks bend and break in new ways during each match, and yet, no matter how badass her on-field performance may have been, you can hear her tell reporters that she can still improve and work harder.

If you’re a fan of great soccer, the playoffs (September 15) and the final (September 22) are going to be sure bets. Want to support women in the workplace? Then get your guts and butts down to Providence Park and start SCREAMCLAPPING for the women in red!

          NBA All Star Detlef Schrempf on Success, Community, and his cameo in Parks & Recreation      Cache   Translate Page      

Detlef Schrempf is certainly a hometown hero for myself and my 90’s Seattle basketball brethren…but he’s also a living example of a self-described “awkward” kid who, after stumbling his way into basketball as a teenager, discovered something he loved…and pursued it. Schrempf went on to play at pinnacle of his sport where he was a 2-time Olympian and a 3-time NBA All Star with the Seattle SuperSonics. That said, we learn in this interview that Detlef won’t be defined *just* by his career as a professional athlete… but also by his role as a father, a husband, and a role model in his community. Of course I wanted Detlef on to talk about what it takes to be an elite athlete as the show is always aiming to get insights from the worlds top performers, but what really emerged from this episode is his sagedom on all things personal growth, community and how to think about choosing priorities in life. You’ll also be inspired to know that: Whether you’re playing sports or building a business, your team needs to have the right balance of stars and support players. It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional athlete considering buying a $200k ride or […]

          Finding Your Niche: A Fireside Chat at CreativeLive      Cache   Translate Page      

Not too long ago I had the opportunity to sit down with a group of CreativeLive students attending a special week of programming in our Seattle studios. This conversation was never intended to be published, but after listening to this intimate conversation with some fellow creators, I had to share it. One of the things I really love about having students in the studio is 1:1 interaction and that non-tangible exchange that happens when a group of people gets together. Let’s face it, the internet can be a mixed bag. It’s sometimes hard to ask important questions. It’s been hugely beneficial for me to seek out and find safe communities where I can learn, explore, and ask questions that I might otherwise be afraid to ask, and this is something I recommend all of you find, too. A few topics we explored: To find your niche and truly differentiate yourself, you need to make art that no one else can make. Show the world how you see the world. If you want to make money with your art but don’t enjoy the business side of it, you have two good options: either partner with someone who enjoys the business side […]

          Grit, Guts, Gumption and the Art of More      Cache   Translate Page      

Today I’m reaching into my quiver of keynotes  to share a talk I gave at CreativeMornings here in Seattle. If you’re not aware of CreativeMornings it’s a breakfast lecture series for the creative community started by my good friend Tina Roth Eisenberg. These talks are hosted in hundreds of cities around the globe and a great way to connect with your local community. There are thousands of talks on their website, creativemornings.com. The theme of this talk was bravery, so I talk about my own experience and my take on how Ansel Adams and Macklemore have used bravery and vulnerability to propel their careers by making things that only they could make. I showed some videos during the talk, and if you want to see them you can find the whole talk on my YouTube channel or on the CreativeMornings site. In today’s episode, We really explore this idea of “the art of more”. The act of creating, and putting more work out there, despite our fear and it’s imperfections. If you want to be a good artist, you have to experience life. Finally, we end with audience questions which is always my favorite part of any talk. We get […]

           Slog PM: Seattle's Crusty Summer Doesn't Bode Well, Fucking Tacoma Is Getting a Lime Scooter, the Teens Are Juuling Too Much      Cache   Translate Page      
We have an evening slog now, Jeff wants to help, the children are still detained by Nathalie Graham

I KNOW ITS NOT A JUUL OKAY?
I KNOW IT'S NOT A JUUL OKAY? licsiren/Getty Images

Good evening, fancy seeing you here at this late, late hour. Welcome to your (and my) first ever evening news rundown. Kick back, relax, and relish in the fact that your day is over—probably. Look upon these fresh hells and think “Boy, am I glad this didn’t happen to me.”

Won’t you get wet for us, Seattle summer? The region just can’t spare the moisture. This summer was the driest in a century in Seattle and we all felt it. Many Washington rivers are running at half their normal levels. The normal rainfall amount is 7 inches, this summer we got 2.5 inches.

Lime expands to Tacoma: Don't worry, Tacoma, your teachers don’t have that livable wage yet but you’ll be getting bike share and scooter share—something Seattle doesn’t even have yet. Though, we did get one in our office and the verdict was that it was “okay.” Charles Mudede had a better than average time on it, however. Later, the scooter beeped at us angrily and we felt like we were about to slashed by Norman Bates a la Hitchcock’s Psycho.


There’s a Juul epidemic amongst America’s teens: The teens are e-cigging too much for their own good. Actually, though. The Food and Drug Administration said that teens smoking e-cigarettes has reached epidemic proportions. The manufacturers—like the very hip Juul (or so I hear)—have 60 days to prove that they can keep their devices away from minors or they’re gettin’ the axe. Additionally, 1,100 retailers, like 7-11s and Walgreens, will be getting FDA warning letters (not quite a love letter, not quite hate mail) for selling this shit to the kids. About 131 got fines that ranged from $279 to $11,182.

Bring on the blood, bring on Florence: The Carolinas (and lowly Virginia) are battening down their hatches, covering up their sloughs of pig manure, and praying to god that their mounds of coal-ash don’t kill them in preparation for Florence’s landfall. Bloodworks Northwest is Doing Its Part and sending blood (34 units!) to the afflicted areas. Blood banks are usually cashed out this time of year so it's an increasingly dire time for desolation to strike.

Who needs blood when you have Amazon Prime? Jeff Bezos & Co. are deploying relief supplies to the places where Florence is expected to land. Thank you, Jeff.


Tacoma teachers are not fucking around this time: The contract stalemate has dragged on for one whole uneventful week and Tacoma’s striking teachers are contemplating filing a lawsuit against their union. That’s worse than detention.

Contrary to popular belief, we’re still detaining children and doing it better than ever! Yep! Migrant children detentions have reached an all-time high in this beautiful country. The Trump administration would like for you to believe the opposite which is not unusual for them. In May of 2017 there were 2,400 children in detention. As of this month there are 12,800. Why? It’s not an increase of children entering the country but a decrease in children being released to other family members or sponsors.

Seven NYPD officers got busted for running a prostitution ring: There was also gambling, too. There’s always gambling. Among the seven New York Police Officers were 3 sergeants, 2 detectives and 2 police officers. They were all working out of Brooklyn Narcotics. They have been arrested and charged.

Let’s all weigh in on the beard debate: You read Slog AM this morning. I know you did. What did you think of Michael Bell’s beard? It’s a hot topic of discussion. Commenters couldn’t decide where they stood, I think wars are about to break out:


He’s dealing: Are you dealing, though?


Pussy Riot member may have been poisoned: During the World Cup final, members of the activist group Pussy Riot rushed across the field in protest. They were arrested. One of them, Pyotr Verzilov, was taken to the hospital for loss of sight, speech, and the ability to move. People close to him believe he was poisoned.

Finally, the ally fair housing advocates have been waiting for: Ben Carson is probably not that ally. But he thinks he might be? Oh, Ben.

          Weekday Trumpdate: Trump Broke His Own Record for Lying, Says We're All Prepped for Florence, Least-Beloved Adult Son Busts Out Dog Whistle      Cache   Translate Page      
by Rich Smith

Just an absolute embarrassment.

Weekday Trumpdate gives you the latest on the ongoing catastrophe in the White House.

Trump broke his own record for Most Lies Told In a Month, according to The Star:

Trump made 321 false claims in August. That shattered his previous record of 280, in July, which had beaten his previous record of 268, in June.

The President congratulated himself for being prepared for Hurricane Florence, saying he's received "tremendous accolades," even though a former FEMA head says we're not prepared. Here's The Hill:

Trump is seeking to show his team is better prepared than it was during Hurricane Maria, which killed nearly 3,000 people last fall in Puerto Rico, even as he defends his handling of that storm.

'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!' he tweeted earlier Wednesday.

ICYMI: Trump administration transferred $10 million from FEMA to ICE, just in time for hurricane season. The New York Times has more:

The document, which was released by the office of Senator Jeff Merkley, of Oregon, shows that the money would come from FEMA’s operations and support budget and was transferred into accounts at ICE to pay for detention and removal operations. The document also shows that the Department of Homeland Security transferred money from accounts at Customs and Border Protection that pays for border fencing and technology.

Today Trump signed an executive order giving him more power to sanction election meddlers, not that Russia hacked us or anything, NO COLLUSION, it's a witch hunt, and the crowd was huge, etc., via The Washington Post:

Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.), the vice-chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said the order puts too much power in the hands of a president who has previously failed to demand accountability from Russia on the issue.

'An executive order that inevitably leaves the President broad discretion to decide whether to impose tough sanctions against those who attack our democracy is insufficient,' he said.

Trump's worst (?) large adult son, Eric, busted out his anti-Semitic dog whistle on journalist Bob Woodward. CBS:

'Don't you think people look through the fact that you can write a sensational, nonsense book, CNN will definitely have you on there because they love to trash the president,' Eric Trump said on Wednesday's "Fox and Friends," the network's morning show, when asked about Woodward's book.

'It will mean you sell three extra books, you make three extra shekels," Eric Trump added. "Is that really where we are? I think people see through this.'

Stormy Daniels's tell-all book, Full Disclosure, will drop a month before the midterms, per Politico:

On Wednesday, Daniels said she's been working on the memoir for a decade and that while it will detail interactions with Trump, it will also be about her personal life and her career as a porn star.

'I've been working on a book for about 10 years, so I just sort of melded everything together. I've kept notebooks of the adventures I've had on the road and in strip clubs and stuff. It will blow your mind,' she said during the interview.

Hero cyclist who flipped off Trump is running for local office, reports The Washington Post:

Juli Briskman... said this week she will file the paperwork to challenge Suzanne M. Volpe, a Republican who represents the Algonkian District on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors in 2019.

It's the 601st day of Trump's presidency, and we are all still that woman on the bike.

          Comment on ‘Keep public land in public hands for public good’ — Seattle looks for path to use surplus city land for affordable housing by CPAman      Cache   Translate Page      
“To me it’s about creating a movement for long term de-financialization of housing,” Loe Bernstein said. “Housing as [a] human right not a tool for homeowners to have a nest egg investment for retirement and not for global speculators.” Wow this person has quite the monumental movement to begin. Owning a home is one of the last ways an average person can amass any real long-term wealth. Furthermore, selling city owned land for less than market value sounds less than smart. Given the fact that taxes continue to rise along with administrative costs to run this city, I don't think Seattle should be leaving any money on any table. You can guarantee the city will be sued once they squander taxpayer owned land.

Yeah, exactly. That is exactly my position. No nuance, no complexity, no grey area. Glad I conveyed it so well. Or maybe there is some tiny slice of middle ground between advocating policies that eliminate the investment potential of personal housing and condemning half the population to screwing themselves.

          14k White Gold and Moissanite Wedding Ring Set - Thin Engagement Ring and Wedding Band in white or yellow gold by LichenAndLychee      Cache   Translate Page      

496.00 USD

A sparkling Moissanite and solid 14k white gold engagement ring and wedding band set made by hand in my Seattle studio. The rings are highly polished with bands measuring 1.3mm wide, delicate but strong.

The sample ring shows the setting spliced into the band to keep the stone low profile and create a small gap between it and a matching wedding band. Alternatively, the setting can sit on top of the band so that additional rings will stack flush against the band; just let me know at checkout.

DETAILS
Stone: 4mm white Moissanite
Metal: recycled 14k white gold, yellow gold by request.
Band: 1.3mm wide round
Setting: bezel
Finish: polished, satin or see below for alternatives

The 1st photo shows the plain white gold round band in a highly polished finish. Alternatively, you may choose any of the following textures/finishes that I offer on my silver skinny rings and it'll be made to order in your size. Oxidization is not available on gold, sorry.

Alternate Choices:
1. Bark Texture
2. Hammer Faceted
3. Stone Ground
4. Plain Polished (pictured)
5. Matte Finish
6. Coin Edge
7. Dashed

WHAT IS MOISSANITE?
Moissanite is stone that is only found naturally in meteorites in minute crystals-- too small to be used in jewelry. It is now lab grown as an ethical, conflict free diamond look alike and they are much less expensive than a diamond. Moissanite sparkles like a diamond, have gorgeous fire, nearly the same hardness as diamonds (9.5 on the Moh's chart) and are a warm white in color - roughly equivalent to a J-K on a the diamond grading scale. To learn more about Moissanite: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moissanite

**NOTE** Please give me your ring size and an custom details in the 'notes to sellers' section upon checkout.

Don't See Your Size?
This listing is for the pictured set of two rings up to a size 8. For each additional size above an 8 will be an additional $20. Just send me a convo and I'll do a special listing for you.

SHIPPING
Ships 1st class insured, packaged in a gift box. Shipping upgrades are available for and additional cost. Gift tags with your short message can be included at your request. Please see my policies page for current production times, shipping upgrades, and more - http://www.etsy.com/shop/LichenAndLychee/policy

WHITE GOLD
None of what you see in my shop is gold plated and white gold is not rhodium plated. Plating wears poorly and is a toxic process that I am unable to use in my studio.

CUSTOM DESIGN
This piece will be made just for you and you're welcome to take a part in the design process. I can make these in different widths, silver, different colors or karats of gold, polished, matte, hammered finish, or oxidize the silver black. Just send me a convo with your ideas.

PHOTOS
Please note that all my photos are taken using a macro lens; the detailed measurements will give you the best idea of physical size. Rings shown on the hand are usually a women's 6 and a men's 11. If you are looking to match a ring you already have, send me the measurements (and maybe a photo) and I'll be happy to help you choose a coordinating band.

          Mystics eliminated in 98-82 loss to Seattle      Cache   Translate Page      
A Mystics season filled with dramatic victories and unprecedented success ended with an unceremonious 98-82 loss to cap off a three-game sweep in the WNBA Finals at the hands of the Seattle Storm on Wednesday night. As good as Washington has been all season, they just weren’t able to get back to what they were before Elena Delle Donne injured her knee in the semifinals. They emptied out everything in their bag of tricks just to get past the Atlanta Dream and it was clear from early on in this series they just didn’t have anything left for the WNBA’s best team. Natasha Howard led the way for Seattle with 29 points and 14 rebounds, including their first seven points of the game. She helped the Storm took advantage of extra shot opportunities off of offensive rebounds and Washington turnovers early in the game to help Seattle take an early lead. The Mystics’ defense held strong despite the extra possessions in the first quarter, but Seattle finally found the cracks in Washington’s defense in the second quarter.

          Highlands Community Church - Lead Student Ministries Pastor      Cache   Translate Page      

PLEASE APPLY HERE ---> https://vsearch.ws/2QqZb2P

 

Theology: Nondenominational

Weekly Attendance: 2200

Neighborhood: Renton, WA

The role: Highlands Community Church seeks a dynamic and gifted Lead Student Ministries Pastor to join the Next Generation Ministries Team (Kid’s & Students) and bring continued leadership excellence and vibrancy to the Student Ministries of HCC.  

 

Meet Highlands Community Church:

Highlands Community Church began as an outreach by other Protestant churches to reach kids in a new community, built quickly to support the war effort. Officially formed as a church in 1946, it has moved from a children’s program in a community center to one of the largest churches in the Renton area, along with a campus in neighboring Kent and an ongoing commitment to ministering to the next generation.

Highlands Community Church has always had a relentless focus on seeing lives changed through the message and hope of Jesus Christ, and that vision continues. Today, Highlands Community Church is a thriving non-denominational, multi-generational, Bible-teaching church dedicated to bringing the hope and healing of the Gospel to a broken world by helping people find and follow Jesus.

About the Lead Student Ministries Pastor:

Highlands Community Church seeks a dynamic and gifted Lead Student Ministries Pastor to join the Next Generation Ministries Team (Kid’s & Students) and bring continued leadership excellence and vibrancy to the Student Ministries of HCC. This leader will effectively lead a growing number of committed students and leaders to a passion-filled walk with Christ. While primarily focusing on the high school ministry (the largest age group), this person will lead the Student Ministries staff and volunteers to contribute across HCC's Student Ministries and the broader Next Gen Team under the leadership of the Next Generation Ministries Pastor. HCC reaches over 750-1000 kids and students a week.

 

The Lead Student Ministries Pastor will:

  • Provide point leadership of Student Ministries for HCC on the Next Gen Ministries Team.
  • Study and learn the DNA of Highlands to propel the ministry forward as it grows to reach more students for Christ.
  • Provide team leadership for the Student Ministries professional staff and volunteers on the Next Gen Ministries Team
  • Plan for and present creative and relevant weekend service opportunities for students to come and connect with others and grow in their walk with Jesus through healthy relationships, worship, and teaching
  • Develop a teaching calendar with advanced planning for Biblically based and relevant teaching on the weekends (primary large group teaching time). Identify, raise up, and involve other adults in the teaching of students as appropriate
  • Envision and administrate small group discipleship (student placement, leadership training, shepherding, curriculum, discipleship objectives) based on community and discipleship with solid leaders/mentors investing in students (during the school year only)
  • Recruit, screen, train (regularly), deploy and shepherd a growing team of caring and capable adult leaders who share the vision and philosophy of Highlands’ Student Ministries

 

What you bring:

The Lead Student Ministries Pastor will have a heart for ministry within a local church context and be passionate about reaching the next generation with the hope and healing of the Gospel. This person must possess the qualities of life and practice that demonstrate spiritual maturity, leadership excellence, and teamwork. This person should effectively administer and organize a large Student Ministries program by mobilizing volunteers to multiply the ministry effectiveness. He should be a strong oral and written communicator.

He will be a role model to students, as well as someone who can shepherd the student body and earn the respect and confidence of students, leaders, and parents. He must possess strong relational and conflict management skills, be relevant, have the ability to build and lead teams and display a genuine passion for students finding and following Christ.

Education

The successful candidate should have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree with a focus in ministry or comparable ministry experience. Three to five years of proven leadership in student or church ministry is required. A master’s degree is preferred.

Experience & Skills

The successful candidate will preferably come from a growing church and will have led a healthy and successful student ministry. They will understand the need to build personal relationships with students and parents while investing in staff and volunteer relationships to expand the impact and effectiveness of the ministry.

The Lead Student Ministries Pastor will prepare and present relevant and engaging biblical teaching for a variety of audiences and demonstrate the markers of strategic leadership. The successful candidate will clearly communicate the Word of God with excellence to both students and adults.  

What it's like to live in Renton, Washington:

          Day 2 – Diary of the Aspen/Snowmass Shoot – Nailing It      Cache   Translate Page      

Yesterday’s scout was epic. After waking at 3:55am Seattle time, flying Seattle >> Denver >> Aspen we arrived and hiked our asses up to 12,395 feet of elevation. Sea level to 12 grand in a few hours. Good for the heart and mind – hard on the lungs. Our scout + the weather report (scheduled for perfect sunshine) yielded information that we must shoot our epic heli shot first thing in the morning.

The Padres managed just four hits off Mariners starter Wade LeBlanc, but two swings produced four runs. Austin Hedges provided an early lead for San Diego starter Joey Lucchesi via a two-run homer in the second, and Hunter Renfroe padded the cushion with a two-run shot in the fifth. Seattle got three runs back in the bottom of the frame, with Nelson Cruz capping the scoring with a solo drive to the upper deck -- which also produced his 1,000th career RBI. The Padres' bullpen shut down the Mariners, striking out nine straight batters from the sixth to the eighth, until Kyle Seager led off the ninth with a solo home run. Kirby Yates bounced back to slam the door and secure a two-game sweep for San Diego.

          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.

          VIDEO: After Store Clerk Collapses, Thugs Decide to Rob Convenience Store      Cache   Translate Page      
Call for help? Nooo, rob the clerk and the cash register



Police have identified the man and the two teenagers who did not call for help when a clerk collapsed Saturday afternoon inside a Washington convenience store. The youths, however, took the opportunity to raid the cash register and steal merchandise while the stricken man was on the floor.

A surveillance camera recorded the incident at a Shell gas station in Auburn, a city 25 miles south of Seattle. The video, seen above, prompted multiple members of the public to contact police with the identities of the trio.

As seen in the video, a clerk named Zarif appears to argue with one of the teens about items consumed in the store. After the clerk came out from behind the counter, he collapsed into a SmartWater display stand (at the 2:20 mark of the video).

After staring at the prone worker for a few seconds, the man accompanying the teens left the store. The youths opted to start stealing. After removing money from the hand of the fallen clerk, one teen jumped the counter and tried to open the cash register.

According to a GoFundMe campaign, Zarif, a married father of 3 small children, has been hospitalized in critical condition since September 8.

          NBA All Star Detlef Schrempf on Success, Community, and his cameo in Parks & Recreation      Cache   Translate Page      

Detlef Schrempf is certainly a hometown hero for myself and my 90’s Seattle basketball brethren...but he’s also a living example of a self-described “awkward” kid who, after stumbling his way into basketball as a teenager, discovered something he loved...and pursued it. Schrempf went on to play at pinnacle of his sport where he was a 2-time Olympian and a 3-time NBA All Star with the Seattle SuperSonics. That said, we learn in this interview that Detlef won’t be defined *just* by his career as a professional athlete... but also by his role as a father, a husband, and a role model in his community. 

Of course I wanted Detlef on to talk about what it takes to be an elite athlete as the show is always aiming to get insights from the worlds top performers, but what really emerged from this episode is his sagedom on all things personal growth, community and how to think about choosing priorities in life.

In today's episode:

  • Whether you’re playing sports or building a business, your team needs to have the right balance of stars and support players.
  • It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional athlete considering buying a $200k ride or a creator considering the latest and greatest gear, being very clear on where the lines are between your financial needs, wants and wishes and choosing to prioritize saving for your needs over spending on wants and wishes will help you be financially successful in the long run.
  • We all go through different seasons of our life where our priorities shift and we grow as individuals and teammates. Don’t think that you can or you should have it all figured out right now. Plan for the future if you have the luxury to, but stay flexible enough to realize that you’re going to keep learning and changing along the way.

Enjoy!
