          Nikki Haley warns of ‘dire’ consequences if Russia and Iran continue attacks on Idlib, Syria      Cache   Translate Page

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley issued a warning to Russia and Iran today, saying that continued attacks on the last opposition stronghold in Idlib, Syria could result in “dire” consequences. From CNN:

During what was the second session on Idlib in four days, Haley told the council that “the world has seen a clear military escalation” this month by Russia and the Syrian regime, whose forces have conducted more than 100 airstrikes, using “barrel bombs, rockets and artillery” in an attempt to retake the last rebel holdout after more than seven years of war…

“If Assad, Russia and Iran continue down the path they are on, the consequences will be dire,” she said.

“I also want to reiterate what I said last week to the Assad regime and anyone else contemplating the use of chemical weapons in Syria,” Haley added. “The United States followed through when we said that we would respond to the use of chemical weapons. We stand by this warning.”

Secretary of Defense James Mattis declined to say Tuesday whether the US would take military action against the Syrian regime should it use chemical weapons, but he did say Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad has “been warned.”

There are said to be around 3 million people in Idlib, with a large percentage of them children. So the concern is that Assad and Russia are going to use the same strategy here they’ve used in other places in Syria, i.e. Russian airstrikes followed by a siege to cut off food and water and, possibly, the use of chemical weapons. Last week President Trump himself warned Russia and Iran not to “recklessly” attack Idlib Province.

But shortly after that tweet the airstrikes began:

And it’s not just the millions of people who could be impacted. A full-scale attack is likely to create another surge of refugees fleeing the country:

As Secretary of State Mike Pompeo noted, Russia pledged to preserve Idlib as a “deescalation zone” and end the war through diplomacy. Yet it now appears poised to throw its planes behind an assault by the government of Bashar al-Assad, also backed by Iran, to capture the territory by force. Moscow cites the presence of an al-Qaeda-linked rebel group, which controls much of Idlib; Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says it is a “festering abscess” that must be “liquidated.” But the United Nations’ Syria envoy estimates there are only about 10,000 fighters in the extremist group. If they follow their usual modus operandi, the Assad, Iranian and Russian forces will fight them by systematically targeting the civilian population and infrastructure, including food markets, schools and hospitals.

The damage could spread far beyond Syria. A full-scale offensive could send hundreds of thousands of refugees streaming north toward Turkey, where some 3.5 million Syrians already are harbored.

Bottom line, there is a real potential for catastrophe here and Russia and Iran clearly don’t care so long as they can claim victory and prop up their puppet Asssad. If things escalate, and especially if there is another use of chemical weapons, it’s very likely the US will intervene with more than strong words. Here are Nikki Haley’s full remarks.

          Re: People Are “Fighting For Food” As Authorities Warn Florence “Could Produce A Disaster Comparable To 2005’s Hurricane Katrina”      Cache   Translate Page      

President Trump is a fine President and a true American Patriot. And Ovomit is just the opposite..........A TRAITOR AND LAWLESS SCUMBAG

Ovomit's
Acts of Treason:

1.Perpetrating acts of fraud, perjury and conspiracy in his refusal to confirm
his lawful eligibility to serve as president under the U.S. Constitution
Article II, Section 1, constituting impeachable offenses of high crimes and misdemeanors
adumbrated in U.S. Constitution Article II, Section 4;

2. Surrendering sovereign U.S. war-making to foreign powers and international
authorities by attacking Libya without consulting Congress, in violation of U.S. Constitution Article 1, Section 8 and U.S. Code Title 50, Chapter33:1541-1548;

3. Accepting foreign title and office while acting as U.S. President and without consulting Congress when in 2009, Obama assumed the Chairmanship of the UN Security
Council, the international body responsible for declaring war on behalf of the UN, in violation of U.S. Constitution Article I, Section 9;

4. Making
bribery attempts in word and in deed, as Obama administration offered bribes to
at least three Federal candidates for office: Joe Sestak, Andrew Romanoff and
Jim Matheson, in violation of U.S. Code Title 18, Section 201;

5. Defying a
Federal Court Order by refusing to halt the unconstitutional implementation of
the "Patient Healthcare and Affordable Care Act of 2010, popularly known
as "ObamaCare", in violation of U.S. Constitution Article II, Section
3, and Article III, Sections 1 & 2;

6. Defying a
Federal Court Order by refusing to grant lawful deep water drilling permits, in
violation of U.S. Constitution Article II, Section 3, and Article III, Sections
1 & 2;

7. Executive
Branch creation and implementation of regulations asserting unconstitutional
force of Federal law on matters explicitly rejected by or contrary to the will
and intent of Congress, specifically the EPA implementation of Cap and Trade,
in violation of U.S. Constitution Article I, Section 1 and Section 8;

8. Refusing
to secure our broken borders from illegal alien invasion, international
criminal incursion, and terrorist cadre penetration, in violation of U.S.
Constitution, Article III, Section 3 and Article IV, Section 4;

9. Executive
Branch malfeasance and impeding the administration of justice by preventing the
U.S. Department of Justice from investigating crimes committed for the direct
benefit of the President by presidential associates including: voter
intimidation at the hands of the New Black Panthers and ACORN election fraud,
in violation of U.S. Constitution Article II, Section 3, and U.S. Criminal Code
Section 135, (Comp. St. § 10305);

10. Direct
mobilizing and funding of mob violence, sedition and insurrection, as witnessed
in Wisconsin, by the President's own reelection campaign group Organizing for
America, and including open statements of incitement to the insurrection by the
President himself, in violation of U.S.Penal Code, Chapter 115, Section 2383;

11.
Executive Branch usurpation of lawmaking powers voiding duly enacted
legislation of Congress by improperly preventing the U.S. Department of Justice
from defending established Federal law – specifically the Defense of Marriage
Act, in violation of U.S. Constitution Article II, Section 3;

12. Adhering
to the enemies of the United States, giving them aid and comfort, as witnessed
by consorting with, supporting and installing to powerful Federal positions
persons who in writing, word and deed have called for and promoted the
overthrow of America's constitutionally guaranteed Republican form of
government, and the overthrow of the United States Constitution; including but
not limited to William Ayers, Bernadette Dohrn, Cass Sunstein, John Holdren,
Van Jones, Dalia Mogahed, Harold Koh, and Eric Holder, in violation of U.S.
Constitution, Article III, Section IV and U.S. Penal Code, Section 2385.

, according to Bill Gertz in the Washington Times, “the U.S. government has traced some of the
$1.7 billion released to Iran by the Obama administration to Iranian-backed
terrorists in the two years since the cash was transferred.”

There is a law that applies to this situation.
U.S. Code 2381 says: “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies
war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort
within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer
death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this
title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office
under the United States.”

But there is one thing Barack Obama has on all
competitors: treason.

He showered hundreds of billions of dollars on
the Islamic Republic of Iran. There are those who say, “It was their money. It
belonged to the Iranian government but was frozen and not paid since 1979.”
Indeed, and there was a reason for that: not even Jimmy Carter, who made the
Islamic Republic of Iran possible, thought that money, which had been paid by
the Shah’s government in a canceled arms deal, belonged to the mullahs who
overthrew the Shah. Likewise Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Clinton, and George W.
Bush all thought that the Islamic Republic was not due money that was owed to
the Shah.

Only Barack Obama did.

The definition of treason is giving aid and
comfort to the enemy. The leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran order their
people to chant “Death to America” in mosques every Friday, and repeatedly vow
that they will ultimately destroy the United States of America and the state of
Israel. How was giving them billions and helping them skirt sanctions applied
by the U.S. government not treason?

          Busch Gardens Tampa gets a Sky Rocket for 2019      Cache   Translate Page      
By Robert Niles: The SeaWorld theme park chain announced its third installation of a Premier Rides Sky Rocket II roller coaster, with Tigris coming to Busch Gardens Tampa in 2019.

The ride will be Florida's tallest launch coaster when it opens next spring. It follows this year's debut of Electric Eel at SeaWorld San Diego and 2015's installation of Tempesto at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

The Sky Rocket features three launches — two forward and one backward — reaching a top speed of 62 mph on a 150-foot tall circuit. The top of the loop features a heartline roll that seems glacially slow compared with the launches, providing a thrilling inversion with what should be an impressive park view...

Assuming, of course, that you keep your eyes open while hanging upside down 150 feet in the air.

Here's my on-ride video from Electric Eel, followed by Russell Meyer's on Tempesto, if you'd like an idea of what a ride on Tigris will be like:

As you probably guessed from the ride's name, it will have a tiger theme, as Busch Gardens Tampa explained in its press release.

The Tigris queue will include educational content about the plight of tigers in the wild and what conservationists – including the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund – are doing to help save them. In addition, the purchase of any merchandise in the Tigris gift shop will help make a difference, with 5% of the sales price donated to the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund to protect tigers and their habitat.

In addition, the park teased that it will build another thrill ride for 2020, in the Gwazi area of the park. Anyone want to take a guess on what that will be? ;^)

          Major DNA service developments from MyHeritage      Cache   Translate Page      
New DNA announcements from MyHeritage (www.myheritage.com):



Announcement 1:

MyHeritage supports 23andMe V5 and Living DNA uploads

If you’ve tested your DNA already, we have good news for you, please read on. If you haven’t taken a DNA test yet, we invite you to check out the MyHeritage DNA kit which is now offered at a very affordable price.

Since 2016, MyHeritage has allowed users who have tested their DNA already to upload their DNA data from Ancestry, 23andMe and Family Tree DNA, providing DNA matches and ethnicity estimates on MyHeritage for free.

However, previously MyHeritage did not support the upload of tests based on the chip called GSA (Global Screening Array), that is used by 23andMe (V5), and by Living DNA. Recent improvements to our DNA algorithms allow us to support DNA data processed on GSA chips, and so we’re happy to update you that MyHeritage now supports 23andMe V5 and Living DNA data uploads, in addition to data uploads from all major DNA testing services, including Ancestry, 23andMe (up to V5) and Family Tree DNA (Family Finder).

Upload your DNA data to MyHeritage now — it’s fast and simple. If you upload now, you will get full access to DNA Matching, Ethnicity Estimates, our industry-leading chromosome browser, and more, for FREE.

If you manage additional DNA kits for some of your relatives, and you have their permission, upload their DNA data too, and MyHeritage will let you associate the data with the respective individuals on your family tree.

As of December 1st 2018, our DNA upload policy will change: DNA Matching will remain free for uploaded DNA data, but unlocking additional DNA features will require an extra payment for DNA files uploaded after this date. All DNA data that was uploaded to MyHeritage in the past, and all DNA data that is uploaded now and prior to December 1, 2018 will continue to enjoy full access to all DNA features for free. These uploads will be grandfathered in and will remain free.

So it’s a great idea to upload DNA files for any kits you have as soon as possible. You’ll get the following benefits:

DNA Matches
DNA Matches are other users on MyHeritage from all around the world who are likely to be your relatives based on shared DNA. MyHeritage has a very strong user base in Europe so you are likely to get more DNA Matches from Europe than on any other DNA service. This is very useful if you have ancestors from Europe.

Ethnicity Estimate
A percent breakdown of your ethnic background from among 42 ethnicity regions. You’ll learn which places your ancestors came from.

Chromosome Browser
Helps you understand how you’re related to your DNA Matches by identifying DNA segments that you share with them. MyHeritage’s Chromosome Browser is considered by many experts to be the best in the industry.

After uploading, your DNA data will be kept private and secure, and our DNA service terms are the friendliest in the industry. You remain the owner of your DNA data — not us — and you can delete your DNA data at any time.

So don't delay, and upload your DNA data to MyHeritage now, while all the DNA features are free (and they will remain free for you). If you have tested with 23andMe (any version including V5) or Living DNA, you're in luck, and you can now upload this data to MyHeritage too. You can also upload DNA data from Ancestry and Family Tree DNA’s Family Finder test. Instructions for exporting your data and uploading it to MyHeritage are provided on our upload page.

P.S. We are currently processing the large backlog of 23andMe V5 kits that have been uploaded to us in the past, and their results will be rolled out to the users gradually within the next few days.

Announcement 2:

MyHeritage Partners with British Retailer WHSmith to Distribute DNA Kits

Tel Aviv, Israel & London, United Kingdom, September 7, 2018 — MyHeritage, Europe’s leading service for DNA testing and family history, announced today the launch of a retail partnership with WHSmith. This marks the first partnership of its kind for MyHeritage in the UK, and the first time that MyHeritage DNA tests will be available for purchase in retail stores in Europe.

Under the new partnership WHSmith distributes a unique product named MyHeritage Family History Discovery Kit, which bundles MyHeritage’s popular at-home DNA test with 3 months of access to MyHeritage’s suite of premium online genealogy services. This allows consumers to receive detailed ethnicity reports and connect with their relatives around the world through the power of DNA testing, and to utilize MyHeritage’s 9-billion-strong collection of historical records and family tree tools to embark on a journey to uncover their family history.

The distribution of the kits via local retail stores caters to the surging demand for at-home DNA testing throughout Europe, and in the UK in particular. The affordable price of the MyHeritage Family History Discovery Kit available through WHSmith, £89, makes it an ideal gift for the Christmas season ahead.

The MyHeritage DNA test is notable for its ease of use. It involves a simple 2-minute cheek swab. In addition to the DNA test, the Family History Discovery Kit comes with 3 months of access to MyHeritage’s Complete plan, which includes all family tree features and historical records on MyHeritage, seamlessly integrated with the DNA test results.

“Interest in DNA testing and family history research in the UK market has skyrocketed lately,” said Akiva Glasenberg, MyHeritage’s Business Development Manager. “We have created a unique bundled product to satisfy this need and are pleased to offer it to UK consumers through selected WHSmith High Street stores. Customers can look forward to discovering their ethnic origins and family history and making use of MyHeritage’s vast DNA database and historical record collections to make new connections with their relatives in the UK and overseas.”

The MyHeritage Family History Discovery Kits are on sale in 200 WHSmith High Street stores, as well as online via www.whsmith.co.uk.

          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. 


          Rocket League blog update - Progression update follow-up and RocketID delay      Cache   Translate Page      

It’s been two weeks since Rocket League’s Progression Update went live and one week since our inaugural Rocket Pass was released. We’ve received a lot of positive feedback on both of those items, with many of you embracing the new ways in which you can earn free content by playing matches online while also unlocking new Battle-Cars and Goal Explosions with the Rocket Pass Premium Upgrade. We’re also taking your feedback into account as we consider different ways to fine-tune progression in upcoming updates and adjusting future versions of Rocket Pass.

Before touching on our last update and the XP conversion, though, we wanted to share some news about RocketID, which includes cross-platform friends and parties. As outlined in our Summer Roadmap Update, our goal was to release RocketID in September, but we’ve made the difficult decision to push it out of September and include it in a future update. We want to ensure that RocketID is operating flawlessly on all platforms before its release, and this extra time will ensure that you'll be playing and partying up with friends on different platforms with ease.

Between the progression and XP changes, Rocket Pass and the introduction of Clubs, the Progression Update is one of the largest updates we’ve ever had. An update of this size is always a challenge and the two hotfixes we released in the days after the update went live are reflections of those challenges. That pair of hotfixes allowed us to address the most urgent issues -- control input and unintended changes to ball physics -- within 48 hours of the Progression Update’s release, while still leaving some additional bugs to address in future updates.

Another change we made after the Progression Update, was focused on where Level 75 ‘Rocketeer’ players would land in the new XP system. Initially, most of our Rocketeers ended up between Levels 110-120 and our fix the following week adjusted placement in the new system, pushing most of those affected players up into the Level 200-225 range.

Two major factors went into determining how you would be converted into the new progression system: online matches played -- which excludes private matches and is based on our own internally-tracked match history -- and earned XP. The internal match history we used for this conversion process may not line up with what you see on stat-tracking websites for a number of reasons, including local save data file corruption or manipulation. Along with matches played and XP, we've factored in progress on your last level before the update, while granting up to 10 additional levels to players based on where they fell within the curve of matches played by their same-level peers.

We’ll share more on RocketID (like a release date) when the time is right, along with our Autumn/ Winter Roadmap blog in early October. In the meantime, be sure to leave us feedback on Rocket Pass and the new progression system via Twitter, Discord, and Reddit. Thanks, everyone!

          Saron Gebresellassi: 'We are absolutely capable of getting more votes than John Tory and Jennifer Keesmaat'      Cache   Translate Page

When registration for Toronto's mayoral election opened on May 1, Saron Gebresellassi was one of four candidates to add her name to the list. A proud alumnus of WomenWinTO, an organization that trains women from diverse backgrounds to run for political office, Gebresellassi spent more than a year planning her run and boasts over a decade of community organizing experience. She says that her decision to run was not only about bringing a progressive agenda to Toronto but was also a response to the many communities that have been encouraging her to run for years. "I have ties to so many communities that have never seen political representation at City Hall ever and so that was a big driving force for me," says Gebresellassi.

A human rights lawyer who speaks seven languages including American Sign Language, Gebresellassi has represented or provided counsel to many clients experiencing discrimination based on family status, immigration status, gender, ability, and race. She maintains strong connections with people incarcerated in facilities such as the Toronto South and Toronto East Detention Centres, which she says constitute a large part of her support base. While the people incarcerated in these facilities cannot vote in the upcoming municipal election, Gebresellassi asserts, "they are all part of family units that do." For Gebresellassi, the respect and trust earned by a proven track record of advocacy and deep roots in community are critical to victory: "I know that we have the numbers to win the election with, just for example, the Eritrean community, the Ethiopian community, the Somali community, the Latino community, the deaf community."

Gebresellassi draws inspiration for her first electoral campaign from the recent victory of 28-year-old Alexadria Ocasio-Cortez in New York's Democratic Primary. Ocasio-Cortez, a Latina organizer in the Bronx and socialist, shocked political observers by unseating 10-term incumbent Representative Joe Crowley in June. For many,  Ocasio-Cortez's breakthrough victory signalled a desire for progressive policy-making and social change that may hold implications north of the border. "She has zero electoral experience and zero campaign experience on her own behalf and she unseated Jim Crowley," observes Gebresellassi. "I saw so many parallels with what we're achieving here in Toronto with the mayoral campaign."

Gebresellassi's platform

Gebresellassi is running a "Toronto for all" platform focused on six key points which she has dubbed "the six for the 6ix." The points include the right to housing, right to transit, right to fair allocation of city resources, right to employment outside the downtown core, the right to mental health and accessibility, and the right to diversity in city politics and hiring.

With respect to housing, Gebresellassi is calling for a specific focus on purpose-built rental housing, greater development of affordable co-op housing, and improved institutional support for refugees and their families. Gebressellassi also believes that creating a clear definition of "affordable housing" is critical, as it will address inconsistencies within and between all levels of government that effectively mask the severity of  Toronto's housing crisis.

On employment, Gebresellassi calls for waiving business registration fees and commercial property taxes for a set period of time in order to incentivize and stimulate economic growth outside the downtown core. This process would also include targeted grant programs to assist business owners with hiring new workers in those areas, bringing much needed economic development to many Toronto communities.

Gebresellassi advocates a shift toward free transit, noting that many people in the city cannot afford public transportation in Toronto. She describes the current system as "punitive" and presents her own community of York-South Weston as an example of this. "I know right here in Weston Road, people in our community don't leave Weston Road. They won't hop on the UP Express which will take you right downtown, because it's $5.25 or something like that," she says.

For Gebresallassi, free transit will not only address climate change and gridlock, and reduce road maintenance costs, but will also make the city and its many events more accessible.

A city divided

Each of these points speaks to the many ways that Toronto has become a city divided, a city of immense income polarization, geographically segregated along lines of race and class. These divisions are also apparent in the media coverage that has characterized the lead-up to the election. In the four months since registration opened, the list of mayoral candidates has grown from four names to 35, yet coverage has remained squarely focused upon two candidates, current mayor John Tory and former chief planner Jennifer Keesmaat.

Even before Keesmaat announced that she was running, mere hours before registration closed, she had already received more coverage than all candidates combined. Articles speculating about whether she would run and her potential for success quickly outnumbered those focused on registered candidates and their platforms. The result has been an election in which many key issues have yet to receive attention, and a public discourse desperately in need of invigoration.

Gebresellasi recently attended the annual National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) conference, a gathering of Black journalists, students, and media professionals from across the United States. Reflecting upon her campaign, which has generated interest in the U.S. and in Eritrea, Gebresellassi says "[it's] bizarre in some ways that our campaign gets received more in the press in foreign countries than in my home city." She acknowledges that the dearth of Black journalists in Toronto and in Canada not only affects the coverage of Black mayoral candidates but also raises questions about the coverage Black diplomats and dignitaries receive when visiting Toronto: "I worry because the Canadian media, white media, have a way of shrinking Black leaders who are really renowned nationally and internationally. The Canadian media have a way of just erasing them."

To date, the city of Toronto has never elected a person of colour as mayor. As WomenWinTo points out on their website, "Out of 45 elected officials, there are only six Councillors who are racialized, only one of whom is a racialized woman, and less than a third of Council are women. There are no Black, Indigenous, trans, or disabled women on Toronto City Council."

Despite these challenges, Gebresellassi remains confident that she can win:

 "The path to victory is very clear from my perspective. It really means getting more votes than my main contender who I've identified as John Tory. There's of course Jennifer Keesmaat who's in the race and there's other candidates as well but really it's about mobilizing the grassroots and getting more votes. So, while it is a major challenge for our community, it is not rocket science. I've been saying this to our community over and over again: we are absolutely capable of getting more votes than John Tory and Jennifer Keesmaat."

It just occurs to one that @NachoPR’s list actually, in some respects, holds immigrants to a higher standard than homegrown citizens.

How do we feel about that?
There are certainly valid cases to be made either way.
Again, I’m not backing either side, I just think it’s an interesting question.

          Why the Legal Marijuana Industry Might Be More Responsible Than Silicon Valley      Cache   Translate Page      

This season on Slate’s podcast Working, host Jordan Weissmann is focusing in on an emerging industry: marijuana. In this Slate Plus members-only podcast, Chau Tu talks to Weissmann about what he’s learned, why the pot industry might be more responsible than tech, and whether we really can credit President Trump for improving the U.S. economy.

* * *

This transcript has been edited and condensed for clarity.

Chau Tu: So since we last spoke, you’ve taken over as the new host of Slate’s podcast Working. You’re in your second season now—what are you trying to bring to listeners?

Jordan Weissmann: I am on my second season, it’s been a lot of fun hosting the show. The first round was me sort of getting my sea legs. It was just like a grab bag of Jordan’s various interests, that was Season 1. I talked to a tattoo artist and the guy who does Wes Anderson’s soundtracks and an art auctioneer and archaeologist at one point. It was sort of all over the place, but people who I would just personally want to have a chat with.

This season has a theme, and it’s a fun theme, I think. I went to Colorado to talk to people who work in the state’s legal cannabis industry, everyone from the CEO who runs the dispensary company to the guy who literally trims the marijuana buds before they go on sale. I’ve talked to a lawyer, a marijuana researcher at a university, a chef, a baker, all kinds of folks just kind of all over the business.

There are a few reasons I wanted to [do this theme]. I talked about the first one, I think, at the beginning of the first episode, so forgive me if you’ve heard this already, but the inspiration came at a wedding I went to recently. For some reason, every time I have gone to a wedding in the past couple of years, I’ve ended up in a conversation with somebody who is working in the marijuana industry. And I think it has to do with the fact that I keep going to weddings in Colorado and California—

That might be it!

Or it might be very specific to my circle of friends, I don’t know. But like, one person was a private equity guy who is working with marijuana startups. And another person works at a tech company that essentially provides point of sale systems to a dispensaries that also help them keep track of different regulations so they don’t accidentally break the law, which is kind of easy to do in this industry. And they were all just like really fun, interesting chats with people, which is kind of notoriously difficult at a wedding, where you’re kind of stuck eating canapes and making small talk. And I thought, if I can have this much fun talking to random folks about this I meet at a party, I think it’d be great to do a podcast about it. And so I got Slate’s permission, and I went and did it.

And just aside from what sparked it, I think it’s a really good time to talk to people in the business. Because it seems to be at this sort of inflection point where everyone realizes it’s probably going to be legal in the long term. Jeff Sessions is not going to come and stamp out all these dispensaries now. It looks like the Trump administration is going to let it just kind of do its thing. And a lot more money is starting to flow in and you’re beginning to see the green shoots of sort of the corporate marijuana business. So it seems like a good time to meet people and talk to them before things get too corporate. When it’s becoming more respectable, when it’s becoming more mainstream but hasn’t quite become big weed yet.

What are you finding about the people that are in the industry right now?

It was really a fun season to put together because of just the vast array of personalities I encountered. Some people traveled to Colorado to get into the industry, moved there because they wanted to work in marijuana. Some kind of fell into it. I talked to people about their backstories. And that’s kind of the fun thing about Working in general is not just finding out about the minutia of people’s days, but it’s finding out about their lives and who they are. It’s kind of a way to see the person. So it’s everyone from the corporate chef I met who actually doesn’t have any taste buds.

Oh wow.

Yeah, right? It’s a really great chat I had with her and learning how in some ways that may actually make her better at her job. Which kind of makes sense when you learn how you have to cook with marijuana and on a kind of mass production scale.

Talking to the trimmer I mentioned before, I wasn’t quite sure exactly what to expect going into that conversation because how much is there to say about sitting over a table and just cutting the leaves off marijuana and it actually may have been my favorite interview I’ve done in the course of doing this show. It was just a fun, fascinating conversation about his life and how he looks at his job and why he gets excited about that kind of work and labor and the things you learn in the course of it.

And you get a combination of sort of the slightly stereotypical stoners, but also some really just like business-minded motherfuckers. The last episode that went up was with the CEO and he basically got into the business through a series of acquisitions with family money. He convinced his family to go in on this business right as it was kind of gaining steam in Colorado and they’ve been successful. And he’s just very much about like, how do I get my energy costs down? And if you get him to talk about weed, his favorite weed, he will. But that’s really not where his focus is.

Another, I won’t say surprising thing, but I think a theme you’ll notice in the episodes that some people might not expect, is how—obsessed isn’t the right word—but how conscientious people are about regulations and not breaking the law and wanting to not seem like a bunch of irresponsible stoners. They want everyone to know this is a legit industry. And of course you talk to anybody in any business, they are going to try to present themselves in the best way possible for the most part. They are going to say, “Oh yeah, we care about the law and we’re careful about not breaking it,” but it wasn’t just when people were on tape or when I was interviewing them. It was also just like inside conversations when I was walking into dispensaries or walking into a greenhouse, just every little thing you could tell that was really the forefront of people’s minds. Yeah, I’m the media, but it seems like people, at least my impression, is that people are really determined to not step over the line and to do everything by the book so that they can convince people that this industry deserves to exist and thrive and grow.

It was funny because, when I was there, it was the week that there were some controversies over Facebook and Twitter and responsibility for fake news and Alex Jones and all of that. And I was having a conversation with a guy who was staying with, a friend who actually works in tech and had actually sort of been part of what you might call a socially responsible, social media startup at one point. And we were having a conversation about whether or not Twitter and Facebook even are capable of being responsible, right? Like if it’s in their DNA to be responsible or if it’s just like not in the business model. And I had this thought that, at the very least, the marijuana industry strikes me is a lot more responsible than tech. At the very least, these people all seem like they’re coming in and really care about doing everything by the book and they’ve sort of been trained to because they know all hell will come down on their heads if they don’t. Whereas you got these other industries where it’s sort of like, “eh, social business responsibility, legal responsibility, meh.”

That’s interesting. It’s like they’re more disciplined already.

Yeah, just because they are so highly regulated. Everything, they are walking on eggshells to some extent. There has at least been one kind of widely reported, well-known incident in Colorado where a dispensary was breaking the law and essentially selling people more marijuana than they were supposed to and those people were taking it across state lines and unloading it. And they got the death penalty, they got shut down. That’s kind of hanging over people’s heads is that they know, oh yeah, if you mess up, you’re out of business. It’s not a slap on the wrist. This is not to say that the people in this industry are saints, because obviously ...

And I expect that as it grows and becomes more corporate, you’re going to get bad actors and you’re going to get controversies and scandals and people doing things that they shouldn’t be purely for profit and you’re going to get them lobbying for things that, that may not be in the public’s best interest, but for now at least, my early impression is that the people getting into it really do have a sense of conscientiousness.

And it must be fascinating just to see like a new industry kind of at its infancy, right?

Yeah, absolutely. I mean, yeah, people already say it’s getting kind of crowded, right? But these are early days, it’s not even fully legalized. It’s not very often that you get to see an infant industry, like you said, sort of take its first steps.

Yeah, figure it out on their own.

It’s not quite a toddler anymore, it’s maybe like a 3- or 4-year-old, they’re learning to talk. But it’s really still early days and it’s fun to get a picture of it at that moment.

Although it’s funny, I talked with a guy who essentially heads cultivation for one of these dispensaries, he’s like a marijuana farmer. He works now in this 120,000-square-foot greenhouse, which is, it’s big for marijuana. It’s not big agriculture though. And he’s already talking about how he kind of misses the good old days working in the small, like converted warehouse, downtown—

In a closet.

Yeah, exactly, it wasn’t good for growing weed really. The environment and the production process is infinitely better now. But he’s already looking back at the old days and I’m like, you guys have barely begun. So there’s already a sense of nostalgia for some people for when it was really just getting started and they were all kind of pirates. And there definitely was a period clearly when everyone was kind of a pirate.

I talked to a marijuana lawyer. He co-leads the weed practice at this fairly large law firm with an office in Denver. And he said “Early on, my clients were basically drug dealers.” That’s effectively what they were. And now he spends all of his time doing M&A. Like that’s how it’s already changing. Now it’s all mergers and acquisitions because that’s where the industry has started to go. And he’s become totally corporate. But there was a few years back.

So how are you choosing the people that you’re talking to?

Some of it was just doing some research into the industry and saying, well, I need to talk to this kind of person, I need to talk to this kind of person. The trimmer, for instance, I had been reading about that job and thought, that seems like a person that no one thinks about. I should talk to a trimmer. Obviously you need to talk a dispensary manager, or a bud tender, as the cashiers are called—they’re the face, they’re the person you meet when you walk in. I wanted to meet someone who cooks with edibles, a baker or a corporate chef because I like to cook. So, what is it like when you’re doing it with a controlled substance? And some of it was just kind of you stumble into, you talk to one person, they say, oh, you should, chat with X person at this dispensary, and that leads you.

There’s gonna be a bunch of stuff on the cutting-room floor by the end, unfortunately. But we ended up doing about 14 interviews in the three days we were there. So we just met a lot of people and we tried to pick some of the best of it for our episodes.

So what do you think you were most surprised by in your reporting?

Everyone was extremely conscientious and I didn’t find that shocking. There were points where I was a bit surprised by just how corporate some of the folks seemed. In the episode that’s up right now, I talked to the CEO of one of the larger dispensary chains in Colorado, a guy named Alex Levine who owns and co-runs Green Dragon. And when I walked into their dispensary, one of their dispensaries, I looked over to the left and there was like a conference room right next to it. Like I guess it was sort of corporate headquarters, but it’s like, to the right, there’s the marijuana, to the left there are the PowerPoint presentations. And he’s admitted that sometimes they get compared to negatively to Starbucks.

But I was a little taken aback by how businesslike they were. In retrospect, probably I shouldn’t be because those are the businesses that are going to succeed. It’s not the guys who are running around wearing tie dye and kind of spaced out, it’s going to be the ones who treat it like a business. The way you treat beer like a business or anything else.

Is there anything else that you want to mention about this season or about the podcast?

Yeah, so I think that it’s going to be really fun for anyone to listen to, even if you’re not a stoner. Even if you’re not really into marijuana, which frankly, I’m not. My wife’s a prosecutor; I do not have marijuana in my house. But I do think it’s just as a portrait of an industry, it’s really interesting. I think it’s a great time just to talk to these people. And I think you’ll find some really great human stories in it if you give it a listen.

Great. Well you can find that at slate.com/working. And meanwhile you’re still reporting on business and the economy for Slate. And this week, the White House had a presentation about how the economy has supposedly improved under Trump. So what happened there, is that true?

I mean yeah, the economy’s gotten better under Trump, but the White House wants to make a very specific argument, which is not that Trump has improved the economy some or that the economy’s getting better under Donald Trump. It’s that things changed dramatically when Trump was elected. That’s the argument they’re making. It’s like, there was one trend. Things were kind of not going so well under Obama. And then things got better after November 2016.

And Kevin Hassett, who’s the chair of the Council of Economic Advisors, got up with a bunch of graphs and try to make this presentation. And I have a piece up on Slate about why it’s sort of lying with pictures. And I’m not going to bore you with a lot of the wonky stuff. Again, it’s online if you want to read it. But this is the thing to keep in mind: Again, Donald Trump probably deserves some credit for the state of the economy right now. Why? Well, among other things, he signed a giant fucking tax cut, and he increased government spending. And even if you don’t think tax cuts are going to have the long-term benefits for workers and the economy that Republicans suggest, that they’re not going to raise wages quite the way that conservatives have a predicted they will. It’s still just adds a bunch of money sloshing around the economy. Same with the increased government spending. Just like if you believe in the idea that the government can stimulate the economy, you got to believe there’s some stimulus going on right at this moment. So yeah, Donald Trump has probably given the economy a little bit of a boost just through being really loose with the budget.

Is it possible other things he has done may have helped the economy around the edges? Yeah, it’s possible. Small business optimism at least by some measures skyrocketed after the election because a lot of small business owners, at least the ones that get surveyed, tend to be Republicans. And so they were just like happy. And it’s possible that maybe they made some investment decisions based on being happy. Maybe having Donald Trump in the White House just like gave them a little boost and they decided to buy a little extra equipment for their business or something like that. Again, we’re talking about things around the edges.

So the idea is not to deny Donald Trump any credit whatsoever for what’s going on right now. In so far as things are good. It’s just, it’s how you need to push back, again, what you should be skeptical of is this idea that everything changed when Donald Trump became president. A lot of the things that we are experiencing now or just the continuation of trends that were happening under President Obama, and have to do with just sort of the natural healing of the economy after the great recession.

And so Trump also recently mentioned making that trade agreement with Mexico, which would basically rebrand NAFTA. So what’s going on there? What should we take away from this agreement and what he’s trying to do here?

Yeah, so this gets a little bit complicated, but a couple of weeks back, Donald Trump announced that he had come to a preliminary deal with Mexico. Obviously he has been trying to renegotiate all of NAFTA, which involves Mexico, United States, and Canada. They have not reached a preliminary deal with Canada yet. However, essentially the Trump administration needed to submit a notice to Congress with 90 days lead time saying that they were going to sign a new NAFTA. It’s for legal reasons, but they needed to do it that week because if they didn’t, that means that the next Mexican administration was going to come in before have a chance to sign it and they want to sign the deal with the current administration.

So that that’s like the technical reasons why it had to hit that deadline. It’s a little bit self-imposed. It wasn’t necessarily a hard deadline and you can see it wasn’t totally hard deadline because essentially they submitted the notice to Congress saying “We’ve got a deal with Mexico and we’re gonna sign one with Canada too, if they agree to participate. If Canada says they’re on board, they can sign as well.”

The Trump administration has worked out the two ways issues with Mexico, now they’re back to negotiating with Canada. And my take is generally that this is all eventually going to fall in line. There will probably be a three way NAFTA deal. NAFTA does not look like it’s going to be broken up. We’re not going to withdraw from NAFTA. Again, this is me predicting, who knows with Trump, things can always go wrong at the last minute. But in a lot of ways, yeah, it looks like he is going to put his stamp on this deal.

And some people have said it’s merely rebranding. I think that is actually a little bit unfair. In the end, if you’re going to renegotiate NAFTA, you’re not going to totally change the core of the deal because the core of the deal is like low tariffs, what he’s renegotiating are things like, the use of arbitration panels in investor and state disputes, which are a really hot topic on the left. He’s renegotiating how much of a car has to be made within North America for it to count for low tariffs. And the new deal would require that a certain amount of a car he produced by workers that make at least $16 an hour to qualify as tariff under NAFTA, which is a first. It’s sort of like a minimum wage for auto workers essentially, or like a kind of a loose minimum wage.

These are substantive changes. Again, it’s not totally changing the nature of the deal, but it’s more than a tweak. So, some things will make it better. Some things people might be less happy with. There are I think a lot of people in the left may be displeased with the new protections for intellectual property that are in there.

But we could end up with a new NAFTA under Trump and as I wrote a couple of weeks back, I think if this actually does happen, if he actually does sign a new version of the deal, his ultimate accomplishment might sort of be ending the NAFTA wars. For all these decades we’ve been fighting over this trade deal, which in a lot of ways was much less economically significant than say, trade with China. In terms of its effect on manufacturing and wages and workers. But it’s always been symbolically extremely important. And NAFTA has always been this rhetorical punching bag, people forget that both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in 2008 promised to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw and that didn’t really happen. But still, it’s always been just the target of so much ire. And if Donald Trump actually renegotiates it, it leaves us in this interesting situation where Democrats have kind of come to embrace free trade, partly as a reaction to Donald Trump and partly just because of who makes up the Democratic Party now, and Republicans are, I’m guessing, are going to kind of support the new NAFTA just because their guy negotiated it. It’s going to be Donald Trump’s big accomplishment.

So people might finally just stop arguing about this. It’s possible that NAFTA will no longer be controversial. I think. Anyway, that’s my guess. And so it’s weird, but I think—and this is what I’ve argued, and God help me if I turn out to be wrong—but I think it’s possible that Donald Trump is actually going to end up being the guy who saves NAFTA in the end. And who the fuck would have thought?

I guess we’ll see. What other stories do you think you’re going to be keeping your eye on for the rest of the year?

For the rest of the year? Oh, I mean, who knows? I’m really interested in what’s going to happen during the lame duck session, if anything, right? Like, if Republicans lose control of the House or Senate or both during the midterms, I am deeply interested in what they’re going to try to do at the last minute while they still have power. What kind of wacky shit they try to pass, if anything. So that’s one thing that I’m intrigued by and that’s like looking way forward. I don’t have an answer to that. Some people were wondering if they would try to take another stab at healthcare, but so far it looks like they’re not going to do that. So, cross your fingers. But I don’t know, that’s one thing that sort of in the back of my mind: What last minute hijinks will the Republican Party do if it loses last grasp on power on Capitol Hill?


          'We, The People' Versus Piketty's Pandering Principles      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Michael Lebowitz via RealInvestmentAdvice.com,

We want capitalism and market forces to be the slave of democracy rather than the opposite.” – Thomas Piketty

The essential underlying elements of supply, demand, scarcity, and prosperity described in our first article in this series, The Forgotten Path to Prosperity, are keys to gaining a better understanding of what constitutes a well-functioning economy. In this article, we further consider those dynamics and within that context begin to evaluate why current economic growth is stagnating. Our view necessarily advocates for a focus on supply-side economics. In other words, the talent, skills, and work that people do to acquire resources and how the resulting productivity growth from those endeavors most effectively relieves scarcity and poverty.

In his best-selling book Capitalism in the 21st Century, Thomas Piketty advocates for a mandated redistribution of wealth through a progressive global tax. His perspective of economics centers on the allocation of resources and making sure that it is fair and just. What is made very clear in Piketty’s arguments is that he and a few other intellectual elites, so-called “Davos-men,” ultimately know better than the collective decision-making of the citizens of a nation about how resources should be allocated and what should be mandated as “fair and just.” Piketty and many other economists elect to ignore the fact that the world runs most fairly and efficiently when individuals are free to pursue their separate interests. Said differently, free-market capitalism, although imperfect, remains the single best means of relieving people from the ubiquity of scarcity. As we have repeatedly seen throughout history, nations that relinquish their liberties to oligarchs crumble from the inside-out.

Importantly, Piketty’s idea runs perfectly counter to the central precepts laid out in the United States Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the Pledge of Allegiance, and scores of other important documents that foster the basic tenets of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in this country.  The challenges capitalism and free markets face are not due to a lack of government imposition of laws and regulation to ensure fairness and justice, they are due to the failure of the United States government to do the primary thing incumbent upon it – defend the rights of liberty as laid out in the founding documents of our country. What Piketty suggests implies a massive expansion of government power in ways that would at a minimum erode and at worst destroy the vitality and dynamism of a capitalistic and free market society. What is most worrisome is that these concepts are not just the ruminations of the latest economic “rock star,” they are fully in play in every developed nation and go a long way toward explaining the accumulation of sovereign debt and the deterioration of economic growth in those countries.

Unwanted Intrusions

Economic inequality is and always has been a feature of human existence. The degree of inequality ebbs and flows across time and geography but will never be eradicated because scarcity is also a permanent feature of human existence. Yet, for a variety of complex reasons, western civilization enjoyed an economic system that delivered unmatched prosperity and economic equality over the last 500 years and nowhere was it more pronounced than in the United States of America.

Capitalism does not solve the perpetual and age-old problem of poverty, but it offers an advantage to those societies who trust in it and depend on the government to protect against unwanted intrusions, especially those emanating from the government itself. Societies are most prosperous where individuals are incentivized to be productive because their individual liberties and private property are protected. Those societies imposed upon by over-bearing governments issuing mandates about how earnings and property will be re-directed are less prosperous and eventually bankrupt themselves.

Free Markets and the Freedom to Choose

As described in The Forgotten Path to Prosperity, everyone has a set of ideas about how markets function.  These ideas are established on the basis of our everyday experiences about how we will use our resources.  Our decision-making is prioritized by attending to those things we need first and then, provided the budget allows, moving on to those things we want – needs and desires. Whether at the grocery store or in the executive suite of a multi-national corporation, economic choices are framed in the context of economic reasoning.

Resources are limited so individuals must make decisions – choices – about how to best use the resources he or she has.  At the same time, we accumulate resources by engaging in productive activities, through the use of the factors of production – land, labor and capital – and productive activities are enabled and enhanced by the freely collaborative efforts among and between people.

With Liberty and Justice for All

So how does one go about being “freely collaborative”? What is it about a culture or society that is constrained from being so? We take such benefits for granted in the United States but even here many of those foundational freedoms are eroding.  What is really being described here is liberty which means “I rule myself.” It is a “negative right” that restrains other people or governments by limiting their actions toward the right holder.  By contrast, a “positive right” provides someone with a claim against another person or the state for some good or service (i.e., housing, healthcare, education). Liberty represents an individual’s freedom from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one’s way of life, behavior or political views. In other words, liberty (and freedom) can best be defined as a condition in which a man’s will regarding his own person and property is unopposed by any other will. The limits to liberty, according to Thomas Jefferson, are “drawn around us by the equal rights of others.”

The 17th-century philosopher (and indirect contributor to the Declaration of Independence), John Locke framed it this way:

“All men are naturally in a state of perfect freedom to order their actions and dispose of their possessions and persons as they think fit, within the bounds of the law of Nature, without asking leave or depending upon the will of any other man.”

Paraphrasing Jefferson and Locke, we should be allowed to do whatever we want, so long as we do not impose upon or hurt others in doing it.

Reflecting for a moment on those important closing words in the Pledge of Allegiance, “with liberty and justice for all,” we may now have a grasp on liberty but what does this have to do with justice or Thomas Piketty, for that matter?

Thomas Piketty envisions a world, quite literally a global government authority, which actively redistributes wealth, resources and property as that authority sees fit and fair without regard for the liberties of individuals. Social justice does not and cannot reconcile with the form of justice that is referenced in The Pledge of Allegiance precisely because it is adjoined to liberty. Social justice requires an imposition on some members of society in order for others to receive positive rights assigned to them. It means someone else rules over the choices and resources taken from me. The only justice that can be “for all” involves defending negative rights – prohibitions laid out against others, especially the government, to prevent unwanted impositions and intrusions.

Summary

An increasingly interventionist government, either through un-elected and unaccountable authorities like those at the Federal Reserve or those elected by constituents who demand more positive rights, will continually stray from its delegated authority. The erosion of negative rights in the name of “fairness” and “justice” achieves neither. Free markets are not allowed to function fluidly as Fed officials step in to bailout hedge funds and bankers in the name of “the greater good.” Economic growth deteriorates as capital is used to buy back stock to boost executive compensation instead of being invested in long-term growth and innovation. Entire industries wither kept alive only by artificially low-interest rates leeching resources from others who might use them more productively. Standards of living deteriorate as the cost of housing, healthcare, and education skyrocket while worker pay remains stagnant. All of these examples and many others can be found in today’s post-crisis economy and serve as markers for poor growth, weak productivity, and broad public dissatisfaction. They point to misguided policies that subordinate the inalienable, negative rights of liberty to the selfish demands of a society that risk losing her most precious asset – the talents and contributions of an inspired and motivated population.

If, as Piketty advocates in the opening quote, capitalism and market forces are to be the slave of democracy, then democracy will most assuredly be the slave to corruption. Piketty’s wish is to subordinate the cumulative independent decisions and property rights of billions of human beings – basic liberties – to a few pious intellectual elites claiming to know what is best for the global population. Without these liberties, capitalism and market forces will be neither subject to honest men elected to represent a constituency nor capable of carrying out the duties of sponsoring free collaboration. The Davos Men will rule and they will direct markets and capital as they wish (and to their benefit) picking their winners until the façade collapses under the weight of the bulging obligations of socialism. The problem with socialism, as Margaret Thatcher pointed out, is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.

To restate Milton Friedman yet again:

There is no alternative way so far discovered of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by a free enterprise system.”

One tweet away from Armageddon

When a simpleton runs the world:

According to Woodward, the president is obsessed by the fact that the U.S. pays $3.5 billion a year to station troops in South Korea as a first line of defense against the North. "I don't know why they're there," he said at one meeting. "Let's bring them all home." At another meeting, Secretary of Defense James Mattis starkly why the U.S. has 28,000 troops in Korea: "We're doing this in order to prevent World War III."

"The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea." - President Trump at the United Nation, Sept. 19, 2017

The standoff with North Korea has been eased, for the moment, by the Singapore Summit, which brought together two leaders who had been trading nuclear threats and schoolyard insults.

Trump: "'Rocket Man' is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime."

The president later made that "Little Rocket Man" on Twitter, which he told Rob Porter "may be my best ever." When Porter asked if it might provoke Kim, according to Woodward, the president replied, "It's leader versus leader, man versus man, me versus Kim."

The most dangerous moment of the standoff, Woodward says, came when the president went to work on another tweet: "He drafts a tweet saying 'We are going to pull out dependents from South Korea ... Family members of the 28,000 people there.'"

That tweet was never sent, because of a back channel message from North Korea that it would regard a pullout of dependents as a sign the U.S. was preparing to attack. "At that moment there was a sense of profound alarm in the Pentagon leadership that, 'My God, one tweet and we have reliable information that the North Koreans are going to read this as an attack is imminent,'" Woodward said.

I wonder how that happened, exactly?

I mean, does the president draft foreign policy tweets and have people look them over? How did it come to pass that he never sent it? Did someone rush in with the "back channel" news that it would start World War III? Maybe the book answers that question. I hope so because I think we are all under the impression that Trump runs his twitter feed as he sees fit, with some assists from his social media guys who send out the odd endorsement tweet or anodyne public announcement. If he actually drafts them and circulates them it would be nice to know what that process is.

Anyway, assuming this is true, it's scary as hell. Trump's obsession with what he calls "wasting money" is based upon his total ignorance about .... well, everything. He came up with one big idea --- that America is being screwed by other countries --- about 30 years ago and is too goddamned dumb to ever learn anything else.

Recall this:
According to Woodward, Trump at one point asked his military leaders why the United States couldn't just withdraw from the Korean Peninsula. They explained to him that it would mean we wouldn't know about North Korean missile launches for 15 minutes rather than learning about them almost instantly, within seven seconds. This is the flap that led Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to reportedly suggest Trump was intellectually and temperamentally akin to “a fifth- or sixth-grader."

What The Washington Post's story Tuesday didn't detail, though, is that this exchange didn't happen early in Trump's presidency; it came on Jan. 19, 2018 — almost exactly one full year into it. It came months after North Korea had threatened an attack on Guam, a U.S. territory in the Pacific Ocean. It also came a couple months after North Korea said it had developed a nuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that could reach the continental United States.

What got Mattis's goat, according to the book, was that he felt like they'd had this exact conversation many times before, and Trump refused to either remember or process it. As Mattis explained the reasons for a U.S.-South Korean alliance, Trump repeatedly returned to the idea that the United States is running a trade deficit with South Korea — suggesting the alliance was hurting the American economy. Mattis tried to explain that having troops in South Korea was actually the most cost-effective — and effective, period — means of preventing World War III. Trump, who often seems to misunderstand what exactly a trade deficit means, wouldn't have it.

"But we're losing so much money in trade with South Korea and others,” Trump pushes back at one point, according to Woodward.

At another: “We're spending massive amounts for very rich countries who aren't burden-sharing."

And at another: “I think we could be so rich if we weren't so stupid. We're being played [as] suckers, especially NATO."

Trump would argue this was merely him “question[ing] everybody and everything,” but it didn't seem to come off that way to Mattis. According to Woodward's reporting, it seemed to be Trump asking the same dumb middle-school-esque questions for the millionth time. And it drew a curt rebuke from Mattis that took those in the room aback.

The president of the United States is a stupid, spoiled rich heir to a fortune who never, ever picks up a tab, who tips like a miser and treats anyone without money like a servant. We all know people like that. That's the vision he has for America. Only, in this case, he's going to end up getting us all killed.

          10 Fab Spots To Eat In And Around Dundrum      Cache   Translate Page      

It's time to take it out to the leafy suburbs. If you don't already know by now, I'm currently living in Churchtown. I've lived all over Dublin - Ballymun, Santry, Harold's Cross, Kimmage, Walkinstown, and I have to say, this is by far my favourite spot. It's away from the hustle and bustle of the city, it's super close to the Luas line, Dundrum Town Centre and it has the best Supervalue ever, like seriously. It pains me that I'll probably never own my own property here, as much as I'd like to, but I've looked online and the prices of houses are extortionate. Like if you cried. Anyway, I'm really lovin living in this area currently. Problem is, when I first moved in it didn't seem like there was many places to eat bar Eddie Rockets, Five Guys and Mc Ds in Dundrum Town Centre. Being the Southside snob I am, they aren't places that I could see myself going to for Sunday brunch. Judge me. Here's some lovely spots to eat in and around the Dundrum area: (That aren't the usual well-known places in the shopping centre.) 1. Café 105 - Clonskeagh This dreamy spot on the Clonskeagh Road is well worth a visit. It's a super cute venue, with ample seating and even an outside area if you want to catch some rays. They serve up a superb brunch and decadent coffee.

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

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 .

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 .

          'We, The People' Versus Piketty's Pandering Principles      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Michael Lebowitz via RealInvestmentAdvice.com,

We want capitalism and market forces to be the slave of democracy rather than the opposite.” – Thomas Piketty

The essential underlying elements of supply, demand, scarcity, and prosperity described in our first article in this series, The Forgotten Path to Prosperity, are keys to gaining a better understanding of what constitutes a well-functioning economy. In this article, we further consider those dynamics and within that context begin to evaluate why current economic growth is stagnating. Our view necessarily advocates for a focus on supply-side economics. In other words, the talent, skills, and work that people do to acquire resources and how the resulting productivity growth from those endeavors most effectively relieves scarcity and poverty.

In his best-selling book Capitalism in the 21st Century, Thomas Piketty advocates for a mandated redistribution of wealth through a progressive global tax. His perspective of economics centers on the allocation of resources and making sure that it is fair and just. What is made very clear in Piketty’s arguments is that he and a few other intellectual elites, so-called “Davos-men,” ultimately know better than the collective decision-making of the citizens of a nation about how resources should be allocated and what should be mandated as “fair and just.” Piketty and many other economists elect to ignore the fact that the world runs most fairly and efficiently when individuals are free to pursue their separate interests. Said differently, free-market capitalism, although imperfect, remains the single best means of relieving people from the ubiquity of scarcity. As we have repeatedly seen throughout history, nations that relinquish their liberties to oligarchs crumble from the inside-out.

Importantly, Piketty’s idea runs perfectly counter to the central precepts laid out in the United States Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the Pledge of Allegiance, and scores of other important documents that foster the basic tenets of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in this country.  The challenges capitalism and free markets face are not due to a lack of government imposition of laws and regulation to ensure fairness and justice, they are due to the failure of the United States government to do the primary thing incumbent upon it – defend the rights of liberty as laid out in the founding documents of our country. What Piketty suggests implies a massive expansion of government power in ways that would at a minimum erode and at worst destroy the vitality and dynamism of a capitalistic and free market society. What is most worrisome is that these concepts are not just the ruminations of the latest economic “rock star,” they are fully in play in every developed nation and go a long way toward explaining the accumulation of sovereign debt and the deterioration of economic growth in those countries.

Unwanted Intrusions

Economic inequality is and always has been a feature of human existence. The degree of inequality ebbs and flows across time and geography but will never be eradicated because scarcity is also a permanent feature of human existence. Yet, for a variety of complex reasons, western civilization enjoyed an economic system that delivered unmatched prosperity and economic equality over the last 500 years and nowhere was it more pronounced than in the United States of America.

Capitalism does not solve the perpetual and age-old problem of poverty, but it offers an advantage to those societies who trust in it and depend on the government to protect against unwanted intrusions, especially those emanating from the government itself. Societies are most prosperous where individuals are incentivized to be productive because their individual liberties and private property are protected. Those societies imposed upon by over-bearing governments issuing mandates about how earnings and property will be re-directed are less prosperous and eventually bankrupt themselves.

Free Markets and the Freedom to Choose

As described in The Forgotten Path to Prosperity, everyone has a set of ideas about how markets function.  These ideas are established on the basis of our everyday experiences about how we will use our resources.  Our decision-making is prioritized by attending to those things we need first and then, provided the budget allows, moving on to those things we want – needs and desires. Whether at the grocery store or in the executive suite of a multi-national corporation, economic choices are framed in the context of economic reasoning.

Resources are limited so individuals must make decisions – choices – about how to best use the resources he or she has.  At the same time, we accumulate resources by engaging in productive activities, through the use of the factors of production – land, labor and capital – and productive activities are enabled and enhanced by the freely collaborative efforts among and between people.

With Liberty and Justice for All

So how does one go about being “freely collaborative”? What is it about a culture or society that is constrained from being so? We take such benefits for granted in the United States but even here many of those foundational freedoms are eroding.  What is really being described here is liberty which means “I rule myself.” It is a “negative right” that restrains other people or governments by limiting their actions toward the right holder.  By contrast, a “positive right” provides someone with a claim against another person or the state for some good or service (i.e., housing, healthcare, education). Liberty represents an individual’s freedom from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one’s way of life, behavior or political views. In other words, liberty (and freedom) can best be defined as a condition in which a man’s will regarding his own person and property is unopposed by any other will. The limits to liberty, according to Thomas Jefferson, are “drawn around us by the equal rights of others.”

The 17th-century philosopher (and indirect contributor to the Declaration of Independence), John Locke framed it this way:

“All men are naturally in a state of perfect freedom to order their actions and dispose of their possessions and persons as they think fit, within the bounds of the law of Nature, without asking leave or depending upon the will of any other man.”

Paraphrasing Jefferson and Locke, we should be allowed to do whatever we want, so long as we do not impose upon or hurt others in doing it.

Reflecting for a moment on those important closing words in the Pledge of Allegiance, “with liberty and justice for all,” we may now have a grasp on liberty but what does this have to do with justice or Thomas Piketty, for that matter?

Thomas Piketty envisions a world, quite literally a global government authority, which actively redistributes wealth, resources and property as that authority sees fit and fair without regard for the liberties of individuals. Social justice does not and cannot reconcile with the form of justice that is referenced in The Pledge of Allegiance precisely because it is adjoined to liberty. Social justice requires an imposition on some members of society in order for others to receive positive rights assigned to them. It means someone else rules over the choices and resources taken from me. The only justice that can be “for all” involves defending negative rights – prohibitions laid out against others, especially the government, to prevent unwanted impositions and intrusions.

Summary

An increasingly interventionist government, either through un-elected and unaccountable authorities like those at the Federal Reserve or those elected by constituents who demand more positive rights, will continually stray from its delegated authority. The erosion of negative rights in the name of “fairness” and “justice” achieves neither. Free markets are not allowed to function fluidly as Fed officials step in to bailout hedge funds and bankers in the name of “the greater good.” Economic growth deteriorates as capital is used to buy back stock to boost executive compensation instead of being invested in long-term growth and innovation. Entire industries wither kept alive only by artificially low-interest rates leeching resources from others who might use them more productively. Standards of living deteriorate as the cost of housing, healthcare, and education skyrocket while worker pay remains stagnant. All of these examples and many others can be found in today’s post-crisis economy and serve as markers for poor growth, weak productivity, and broad public dissatisfaction. They point to misguided policies that subordinate the inalienable, negative rights of liberty to the selfish demands of a society that risk losing her most precious asset – the talents and contributions of an inspired and motivated population.

If, as Piketty advocates in the opening quote, capitalism and market forces are to be the slave of democracy, then democracy will most assuredly be the slave to corruption. Piketty’s wish is to subordinate the cumulative independent decisions and property rights of billions of human beings – basic liberties – to a few pious intellectual elites claiming to know what is best for the global population. Without these liberties, capitalism and market forces will be neither subject to honest men elected to represent a constituency nor capable of carrying out the duties of sponsoring free collaboration. The Davos Men will rule and they will direct markets and capital as they wish (and to their benefit) picking their winners until the façade collapses under the weight of the bulging obligations of socialism. The problem with socialism, as Margaret Thatcher pointed out, is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.

To restate Milton Friedman yet again:

There is no alternative way so far discovered of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by a free enterprise system.”

          Russia's massive war games in the heart of Siberia      Cache   Translate Page      

Moscow, Sep 13 (IANS) Russia's armed forces began the second day of its massive military exercises in the country's far east on Wednesday with a show of strength involving anti-aircraft and missile maneuvers.

The Vostok-2018 war games, the largest staged by Russia since the Cold War, were partly held at the Soviet-built training ground in Telemba, some 200 km to the east of Lake Baikal in the heart of Siberia, Efe reported.

As heavy rain fell, the overcast Siberian sky filled with missiles, guided rockets and thunderous explosions in a show of strength that observers in the West will be watching eagerly.

Colonel Alexander Agafanov of the Russia Air Force described the exercises as a success.

The military arranged several artillery batteries stocked with mid to long-range S-300, S-400, Tor and Buk missiles, the likes of which Moscow has recently sold to Syria and Iran despite protests from the US and Israel.

More than a thousand soldiers took part in a hyper-realistic recreation of a theater of war and explosions interrupted the normally tranquil region, one of the few in Russia where the population is predominantly Buddhist.

Although the war games serve Moscow's propaganda machine, officials declined to name the imagined enemy of the Russian, Chinese and Mongolian forces taking part in Vostok-2018.

Nor would they enlighten reporters as to why there was no sign of the more than 3,000 Chinese soldiers sent to the maneuvers by Beijing.

The participation of the People's Liberation Army surprised many experts.

The display of strength from Russia comes at a time when relations between Moscow and the West are at a considerable low.

According to the Russian defense ministry, 300,000 troops, more than 1,000 aircraft and some 36,000 tanks and vehicles are involved in the maneuvers.

The Kremlin said the war games were routine and did not pose a threat to other countries.

          FACT CHECK: Who Gets Credit For The Booming U.S. Economy?      Cache   Translate Page      
The U.S. economy is chugging along. Employers added 201,000 jobs last month, and the unemployment rate held steady at a low 3.9 percent. Average wages in August were nearly 3 percent higher than they were a year ago. Who should get the credit for that strong performance? At a campaign rally in North Dakota last week, President Trump boasted that he's responsible for the economy taking off like a "rocket ship." But Trump's predecessor wants to remind everyone that the countdown began on his watch. "When you hear how great the economy is doing right now, let's just remember when this recovery started," former President Barack Obama told supporters Friday at the University of Illinois. This is not just a question of bragging rights. With midterm elections less than two months away, voters' impressions of who deserves credit for the boom could influence which political party they support in November. Let's stipulate that presidents of both parties often get more credit and blame for

I bought the original Apple Watch "Series 0" back in 2015, and it served me well for a year until I felt overwhelmed with receiving notifications on my wrist. (Phantom vibrations are a real thingLook it up!)

Series 1, 2, and 3 of the smartwatch introduced welcome updates like a built-in GPS, water-resistance, and then cellular connectivity, but I've never felt that any of them were compelling enough to spend more cash on. 

But Apple's just-announced Apple Watch Series 4 might change my mind.

          10 things you didn't know about the Air Force      Cache   Translate Page      

Sept. 18 is the birthday of the Air Force. The youngest of the service branches, the Air Force was officially founded as an independent service in 1947, although the U.S. military deployed aerial components even back in World War I.

Here are some things you might not know about the Air Force.

1. The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) has maintained a tradition since 1955 of “tracking Santa” as he travels around the world on Christmas Eve. Today, you can even download apps to follow along on your smartphone. (via We Are The Mighty)

2. The Air Force shares its birthday with the CIA; the National Security Act of Sept. 18, 1947, created both entities. (via We Are The Mighty)

3. That same year, Capt. Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier in his Bell X-1 rocket-powered aircraft. (via We Are The Mighty)

4. Celebrities who served in the Air Force include Jimmy Stewart, Morgan Freeman, Hunter S. Thompson, Chuck Norris and “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry. (via We Are The Mighty)

5. "Air Force One" isn't a plane, but the radio call name for any Air Force plane carrying the president of the United States. (via We Are The Mighty)

6. Two U.S. presidents – Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush – served as airmen. Reagan’s time was before 1947, when the branch was still the Army Air Forces. (via USO)

7. The Air Force was the first service branch to create a provisional Cyber Command, in 2006. Today USCYBERCOM is a unified DoD command.

8. The Air Force’s official song is titled, fittingly, “The U.S. Air Force,” and includes the familiar line, “Off we go Into the wild blue yonder.” (via Grantham.edu)

9. The Air Force’s colors are ultramarine blue and yellow – blue for the sky, and yellow for the sun and the excellence required of personnel. (via Grantham.edu)

10. Only 4 percent of all Air Force personnel are pilots. (via howstuffworks)


          Difference between Docker swarm and Kubernetes      Cache   Translate Page      
https://kerneltalks.com/virtualization/docker/difference-between-docker-swarm-and-kubernetes

Learn difference between Docker swarm and Kubernetes. Comparison between two container orchestration platforms in tabular manner.

Difference between Docker swarm and Kubernetes
Docker Swarm v/s Kubernetes


When you are on learning curve of application containerization, there will be a stage when you come across orchestration tools for containers. If you have started your learning with Docker then Docker swarm is the first cluster management tool you must have learnt and then Kubernetes. So its time to compare docker swarm and Kubernetes. In this article, we will quickly see what is docker, what is kubernetes and then comparison between the two.

What is Docker swarm?

Docker swarm is native tool to Docker which is aimed at clustering management of Docker containers. Docker swarm enables you to built a cluster of multi node VM of physical machines running Docker engine. In turns you will be running containers on multiple machines to facilitate HA, availability, fault tolerant environment. Its pretty much simple to setup and native to Docker.

What is Kubernetes?

Its a platform to manage containerized applications i.e. containers in cluster environment along with automation. Its does almost similar job swarm mode does but in different and enhanced way. Its developed by Google in first place and later project handed over to CNCF. It works with containers like Docker and rocket. Kubernetes installation is bit complex than Swarm.

Compare Docker and Kubernetes

If someone asks you comparison between Docker and Kubernetes then thats not a valid question in first place. You can not differentiate between Docker and Kubernetes. Docker is a engine which runs containers or itself it refers as container and Kubernetes is orchestration platform which manages Docker containers in cluster environment. So one can not compare Docker and Kubernetes.

Difference between Docker Swarm and Kubernetes

I added comparison of Swarm and Kubernetes in below table for easy readability.

The Team America Rocketry Challenge is the world’s largest student rocket contest and a key piece of the aerospace and defense industry’s strategy to build a stronger U.S. workforce in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Sponsored by the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) and the National Association of Rocketry (NAR), the Team America Rocketry Challenge was created in the fall of 2002 as a one-time celebration of the Centennial of Flight, but by popular demand became an annual program. Nearly 5,000 students from across the nation compete each year. The contest’s rules and scoring parameters change every cycle to challenge the students’ ingenuity and encourage a fresh approach to rocket design. This year’s contest, themed around the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, challenges students to design, build and fly a rocket carrying three raw egg in a capsule to an altitude of 856 feet and return it to ground with the eggs intact within 43-46 seconds.

You will need to get comfortable with your printer and how it prints in the hot, cold, and humidity. Regardless of the printer you choose, I recommend keeping your room cool and dry. I also, highly recommend using Hatchbox PLA. It may cost a bit more but it’s 100% worth it. Seriously.

I bought the original Apple Watch "Series 0" back in 2015, and it served me well for a year until I felt overwhelmed with receiving notifications on my wrist. (Phantom vibrations are a real thingLook it up!)

Series 1, 2, and 3 of the smartwatch introduced welcome updates like a built-in GPS, water-resistance, and then cellular connectivity, but I've never felt that any of them were compelling enough to spend more cash on. 

But Apple's just-announced Apple Watch Series 4 might change my mind.

          Japan Core Machine Orders Soar 11.0% In July       Cache   Translate Page      

Core machine orders in Japan surged a seasonally adjusted 11.0 percent on month in July, the Cabinet Office said on Thursday - coming in at 918.6 billion yen.

That beat expectations for a gain of 5.5 percent following the 8.8 percent slide in June.

On a yearly basis, core machine orders jumped 13.9 percent - also exceeding forecasts for 4.3 percent after adding 0.3 percent in the previous month.

Manufacturing orders climbed 11.8 percent on month and 21.2 percent on year to 426.8 billion yen, while non-manufacturing orders advanced 10.9 percent on month and 7.7 percent on year to 494.1 billion yen.

Orders from government agencies skyrocketed 57.0 percent on month and 34.1 percent on year to 358.7 billion yen. Orders from overseas gained 6.0 percent on month and 1.2 percent on year to 980.1 billion yen. Orders through agencies picked up 11.0 percent on month and 4.5 percent on year to 128.5 billion yen.

The overall value of machine orders in Japan spiked 18.8 percent on month and 11.5 percent on year, standing at 2,630.4 billion yen.

Also on Thursday, the Bank of Japan said that producer prices in Japan were flat on month in August.

That was beneath expectations for an increase of 0.1 percent following the downwardly revised 0.4 percent gain in July (originally 0.5 percent).

On a yearly basis, producer prices were up 3.0 percent - also shy of expectations for 3.1 percent but unchanged from the previous month following a downward revision from 3.1 percent.

Export prices were down 0.3 percent on month and up 2.9 percent on year in August, the bank said, while import prices fell 0.6 percent on month but surged 12.2 percent on year.

          Busch Gardens Tampa Announces Tigris Coaster for 2019 + Exciting 2020 Plan Hints      Cache   Translate Page      

A new thrill coaster is set to open at Busch Gardens Tampa in 2019, named Tigris.  The ride will be one of Premier Rides' popular Sky Rocket II models, which can be found in two other SeaWorld Entertainment Parks: Tempesto at Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Electric Eel at SeaWorld San Diego.

Tigris will be built in the Stanleyville section of Busch Gardens Tampa, taking up a portion of the space once occupied by the Tanganyika Tidal Wave shoot-the-chutes ride.

© Busch Gardens Tampa
Tigris is a high speed, triple launch coaster that will be the tallest launching roller coaster in the state of Florida when it opens in 2019.  The ride's train will first launch forward, then backward through the station, then forward once more to a top speed of more than 60 miles per hour.  The trains will climb up to the top of the structure, around 150 feet above the park below.

© Busch Gardens Tampa
A thrilling heartline roll awaits the train at the top of the ride, slowly inverting passengers 150 in the air.  A brief pause leads to a steep plunge down toward a non-inverting loop before the ride comes to an end.

"Tigris will be a strong addition to our family of world-class thrill rides. With three intensely exciting launch points, this ride is unlike anything we have in our coaster collection," said Stewart Clark, president and general manager of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. "This new attraction is a testament to our continuing investment in the park, and bringing new and innovative experiences to our guests."

Tigris will feature bright orange track and black supports, naturally to match the theme of tigers throughout the attraction.  The trains are depicted above, which also feature a tiger theme through color choice and other details.

The Stanleyville themed section is right next to Jungala, where the park's Bengal Tigers live.  As part of the park's mission of conservation, the ride's queue will contain "educational content about the plight of tigers in the wild and what conservationists – including the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund – are doing to help save them.  In addition, the purchase of any merchandise in the Tigris gift shop will help make a difference, with 5% of the sales price donated to the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund to protect tigers and their habitat."

Just as exciting as the news that a new coaster is coming to the park in 2019, today's announcement also revealed that Busch Gardens Tampa will open a major thrill attraction in 2020 as well.

Details are scarce, but the park did 100% confirm that "Gwazi's existence has always been a bit of a rocky ride, so we decided to go ahead and revamp Gwazi into a new attraction" for 2020.  The park also said that their news on Gwazi was "a little bit of a hybrid attraction announcement" since it was for both 2019 and 2020 projects.

Obviously, there are two big hints in those quotes - the words hybrid and rocky.  Many have speculated that Gwazi would get the Rocky Mountain Construction treatment at some point since it was left standing, and to me this all but confirms that is the plan.  More details on that in a few months the park said, so stay tuned!

The October natural gas contract tried to break out higher this morning only to reverse hard and settle flat on the day.  Yet again the October led the way higher this morning as later contracts lagged, and we continue to see the October/November X/V contract spread skyrocket.  Prices got up to $2.869 before reversing, justifying our neutral sentiment on the day too.  Meanwhile, traders continue to await the load-killing impacts of Hurricane Florence in the Southeast.

  • IDA: simplifying the complex task of allocating integers

    It is common for kernel code to generate unique integers for identifiers. When one plugs in a flash drive, it will show up as /dev/sdN; that N (a letter derived from a number) must be generated in the kernel, and it should not already be in use for another drive or unpleasant things will happen. One might think that generating such numbers would not be a difficult task, but that turns out not to be the case, especially in situations where many numbers must be tracked. The IDA (for "ID allocator", perhaps) API exists to handle this specialized task. In past kernels, it has managed to make the process of getting an unused number surprisingly complex; the 4.19 kernel has a new IDA API that simplifies things considerably.

    Why would the management of unique integer IDs be complex? It comes down to the usual problems of scalability and concurrency. The IDA code must be able to track potentially large numbers of identifiers in an efficient way; in particular, it must be able to find a free identifier within a given range quickly. In practice, that means using a radix tree (or, soon, an XArray) to track allocations. Managing such a data structure requires allocating memory, which may be difficult to do in the context where the ID is required. Concurrency must also be managed, in that two threads allocating or freeing IDs in the same space should not step on each other's toes.

          White House Threatens Military Response Against Iran-Backed Militias in Iraq      Cache   Translate Page      

Iraq may once again, for the first time in nearly a decade, become a theater of US-Iran confrontation according to a White House statement published Tuesday evening.

“The United States will hold the regime in Tehran accountable for any attack that results in injury to our personnel or damage to United States government facilities,” press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a written statement posted to WhiteHouse.gov. “America will respond swiftly and decisively in defense of American lives.”

Image source: Long War Journal

The threat of military force comes after the American embassy in Baghdad's 'green zone' came under a brazen overnight mortar attack last Thursday, which left no one injured but started a blaze near the sprawling embassy's gate.

Up to four mortars were fired in what officials confirmed was a targeted assault American diplomatic soil. Defense analysts and officials were quick to blame Iran-backed militias in the area, which had previously in the week vowed in a joint statement to expel all "foreign occupying forces" from the country. 

And days later multiple rockets were fired at the Basra airport, which is also site of the United States consulate for the area. Though denying it had a role in events in Basra or Baghdad, Tehran's leaders did admit to a major missile attack on the headquarters of the Kurdistan Democratic Party in Northern Iraqi Kurdistan, which resulted in up to a dozen killed and scores wounded. 

The White House statement, which condemns "life threatening attacks" against "the United States consulate in Basra and against the American embassy compound in Baghdad" also follows two weeks of heightened sectarian tensions across various parts of the country, but especially the southern Sunni-majority city of Basra, where the Iranian consulate was burned to the ground after it was stormed by a mob late last week. 

The statement puts Iran on notice and pledges that it will be held responsible for such incidents: "Iran did not act to stop these attacks by its proxies in Iraq, which it has supported with funding, training, and weapons," reads the press release

US officials have yet to reveal any evidence that Iran was directly behind either the embassy or Basra consulate attacks, but days prior ten pro-Iran Shia militias in the country published a statement vowing to expel foreign troops and advisers by force if they didn't immediately leave Iraq. 

“We will deal with them [foreign troops in Iraq] as occupying forces, and we will use our legitimate rights by employing all possible means to force them out of the country,” the Iraqi factions warned, adding that foreign troops were "in their sights".

The statement first published last Tuesday further declared there was an “Anglo-American-led dirty and dangerous conspiracy to impose a devilish coalition” on the people of Iraq which seeks to weaken the government and make Baghdad a puppet of Brett McGurk, who is the White House appointed special envoy for the anti-ISIL coalition. 

The Shia militias later blamed Washington for being behind the mass anti-Iran and anti-Iraqi government protests that engulfed Basra and resulted in the Iranian consulate being burned down along with dozens of Shia militia headquarters and other facilities across the city. 

“The American Embassy is directing the situation in Basra,” charged Abu Medhi al-Mohandis in public statements. Mohandis is a well-known Shiite militia commander who U.S. officials accuse of long being on Iran's payroll. 

All of this also comes after allegations that Iran has transferred ballistic missiles to its proxy forces in Iraq, which are said to be easily capable of hitting Tel Aviv and Riyadh, according to Western and Iraqi intelligence sources cited in a recent Reuters report

Given current broader tensions in the region and charges of "Iranian expansion" it will be interesting to see if the US again ramps up operations in Iraq. Should the proxy war waging across the border in Syria actually come to an end, it may very well be that Iraq again becomes the new ground zero for the West's anti-Iran proxy war.

          Numbers In the News: The Physics of a Flying Tesla       Cache   Translate Page      
A few months ago, Elon Musk famously launched his own car into space on top of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket. It was an unprecedented stunt, and one that's unlikely ever to be repeated, but last week the world saw another Tesla launched skyward...but this one didn't go nearly as well.

There's been a lot of coverage lately of a 2016 model Tesla that managed an impressive leap on a residential road in the town of Barrie, Ontario. Most news reports explain that the vehicle was traveling at a high speed a when it launched off a steep run-up to a railroad crossing, and ended up airborne for over a hundred feet. The video is impressive, but a little sleuthing can add a lot of precision to the news reports' very rough estimates of the car's speed and flight distance.

Take a look at the video that was posted to YouTube by the residents of a house that caught the incident on security camera:



News reports say the location of the jump was at a railroad crossing on Little Avenue in Barrie, and that the car struck a tree on the property of a public school after losing control following the leap. That's enough information to narrow the event down to a specific stretch of road on Google maps.



If you compare the security camera video to the Google street view, it looks like the Tesla traveled a good deal more than 100 feet. In fact, I'd put the distance at closer to 140 feet (42 meters).

The other bit of info you can get from the video is the duration of the flight. I timed it with my g-shock wristwatch, which has a precision of 0.01 seconds, to about 0.70 seconds total flight time from the moment it leaves the ground at the tracks to the moment it nose-dives into the asphalt.

That's all you need to estimate the Tesla's speed:


Converting that to kilometers per hour:


...which is about 130 mph, for the imperial system fans out there.

A quick trip down Little Avenue on Google street view reveals the speed limit in that area to be 50 kph.

In other words, the car was going 150 kph or so over the legal limit. (Any Mounties reading this post, I'm sure you've already figured this out, but feel free to crib off my math if you still need to calculate the fine.)

Bonus Calculation: How High Did He Fly?

Thanks to Newton, we can also estimate the altitude above the tarmac that the Tesla achieved at the peak of its flight path.

Newton tells us we can calculate the distance an object travels under a constant acceleration (like the acceleration due to gravity) over a certain amount of time. In this case, we know how long it took the Tesla to go from the ground to the peak height of the jump and back to the ground. That's just the 0.70 seconds I measured in the video.

The equation we need to plug the numbers into is one of the kinematic equations—some of the first and most useful tools you'll get under your belt in a physics class! The kinematic equations describe the relationships between time, distance, speed, and acceleration—so they can be rearranged in all sorts of ways to calculate trajectories, velocities, distances, and more! They're also a great intro to the basics of calculus—but that's a whole other can of worms. The equation we need right now is pretty simple; it tells us how far something moves when it's accelerating at a certain rate, for a certain amount of time:
Here, h is the height, g is the acceleration due to gravity (9.8 meters/second2), and t is the time. The asterisks (*) are the multiplication symbol.

Although the whole flight takes about 0.7 seconds, it takes half that to go from from the ground to the maximum height. Similarly, it takes half that time to fall from the maximum height back to the the ground.  Half of 0.70 seconds is 0.35 seconds. Plugging it all in, we find:

...or almost exactly two feet off the ground. If you pause the video midway through the jump, that looks about right.

Thanks to a little algebra and bits of data, we can put some precise numbers to the news. All in all, it was an impressive, and impressively reckless, feat; I can't imagine how horrific it would have been had another vehicle or pedestrian been in the way at the time.

High Performance Red Herring

Many stories about the flying Tesla have noted that it's a high performance electric car that can go from zero to sixty miles per hour in 2.5 seconds. That is indeed a super-car level of acceleration, but it's of no importance to this incident. What mattered was his speed as he launched from the railroad tracks (216 kph, or about 130 mph). My little hatchback could do that, if I were crazy enough to go to Barrie and try it...which I'm not.

From Ian:

Soviet Antisemitism in a British Guise
Most of all, there was the Soviet practice of wheeling out “citizens of Jewish nationality” to denounce Zionism as a “racist” tool of “imperialism.” In March 1983, the Soviet news agency TASS even published a definition of Zionism drawn up by the state-run “Jewish Anti-Zionist Committee” that read as follows:

“In its essence, Zionism is a concentration of extreme nationalism, chauvinism, and racial intolerance, justification of territorial seizure and annexation, armed adventurism, a cult of political arbitrariness and impunity, demagogy and ideological sabotage, sordid maneuvers and perfidy.”

To my mind, the most obvious question here to Jeremy Corbyn, The Morning Star, and those of a similar pedigree, is this: Is there anything in this Soviet definition of Zionism that you disagree with? Make no mistake, the answer is critically important, because it is exactly this characterization of Zionism that grounded both the USSR’s domestic persecution of its Jewish community, and its international alignment with Arab regimes and terrorist groups.

If the answer is to disagree with this formulation — highly unlikely, given that Corbyn himself was present at dozens of left-wing political gatherings during the 1970s and ’80s where Soviet and Arab antisemitic literature was distributed — then it is a disingenuous one. Because when Corbyn and those in his camp speak and write about the triangle of Jews, Zionism, and Israel, these are the terms in which they think, and have always thought.

That is why Corbyn’s house journal uses terms like “embittered fifth column” to describe their leader’s Jewish opponents — also used by Valery Emelyanov, an official Soviet ideologue, in 1978 to describe the “internal danger” posed by Soviet Jews. It’s why they have no qualms about saying that Jewish leaders opposed to Corbyn have “tasted blood,” despite the associations with the antisemitic blood libel that such a metaphor unleashes; then again, Vladimir Begun, a particularly toxic Soviet antisemite, wrote with great enthusiasm of the “bloodthirstiness” that was inherent in “Zionist gangsterism.”

Given the number of occasions that Corbyn publicly defended the Soviet regime — “The Soviet Union makes far greater nursery provision than this country” (1984), “I do not believe that [the USSR] has ever intended to invade western Europe” (1990) — he was clearly well aware of Moscow’s stance on all the key international matters of the time, as well as its propaganda practices. That doesn’t make him a spy, but it does make him an ideological fellow-traveler. And as The Morning Star has demonstrated by defending Corbyn with an ugly rhetorical assault on British Jews, that Soviet-inspired journey rolls on.

Yisreal Medad: An Exercise in Deconstruction
Deconstruction is a literary term indicating "a critique of the relationship between text and meaning ".

I found this poem, "Everything in Our World Did Not Seem to Fit" by Naomi Shihab Nye here. It is an example of "new Palestinian poetry". Excuse me, "Arab Palestinian poetry". Ms. Nye's family roots are in Sinjil, just down the road from Shiloh where I live.

I realized that here poem is a literal work of deconstruction - of history, of Jewish national identity, of politics and of simple rational logic.

Let's deconstruct that literary work.

Once they started invading us.
Actually, the Arabs invaded Eretz-Yisrael in 638 CE. Moreover, despite the loss of political independence, Jews continued to reside in the Land of Israel, if in small numbers depending on the conditions and crcumstances of the various occupiers.

Taking our houses and trees, drawing lines, pushing us into tiny places.
Throughout the Zionist resettlement enterprise, almost all the land was purchased from its owners.

It wasn’t a bargain or deal or even a real war.
The Arab terror war against Jews in 1920, 1921, 1929, 1936-1939 and the 1947 war was real as were the fedyeen and the PLO's launching in 1964.
Interview with Colonel Richard Kemp
A United Nations report on recent violent clashes along the Israel-Gaza border hasn’t been written yet, but international terrorism expert Richard Kemp already knows it will condemn Israel for defending its borders against armed hordes.

Kemp, a retired British army officer who has watched, and fought against, terrorism around the world for 30 years, will tell an audience in Hamilton Thursday that’s the traditional response of a world community that doesn’t want to face up to terrorism.

In an interview ahead of his appearance, Kemp said the recent attacks on the Gaza border were just the latest phase of ongoing efforts by the terrorist group Hamas to smash the Jewish state.

It’s a campaign built around Hamas’ standard tactic of sprinkling its terrorists among civilians in the hope Israel’s response will result in civilian deaths that can, in turn, spark international outrage against the country.

“By creating a situation of violent disorder, breaking through the fence and attacking Israeli communities Hamas hope to provoke Israel in the hope that Israel’s reaction will result in many of (Hamas’) own people being killed,” he said.

Kemp said the tactic has worked to a degree – even fair-minded citizens around the world who understand a country’s right to defend itself are made uncomfortable by the sight of civilians being shot by Israeli soldiers.

“Even if people are against Israel, most sane people can understand that a country has to respond if it is attacked, if rockets are launched at it or attack tunnels are dug underneath it. Most people can accept that even if they don’t like it,” Kemp said.

“Even if they accept that they can’t understand how a civilized country like Israel can gun down people involved in peaceful demonstrations. We know they’re not peaceful demonstrations, but that is how it’s portrayed.”



New York Times Stumbles in a Strange Front-Page Antisemitism Story
A front-page New York Times news article appears under the headline “U.S. Revives Rutgers Bias Case In New Tack on Anti-Semitism.”

The Times article hypes what it describes as a “significant policy shift.” It claims that the federal education department and its assistant secretary, Kenneth Marcus, “put the weight of the federal government behind a definition of anti-Semitism that targets opponents of Zionism.”

It goes on to claim that the Education Department “adopted a hotly contested definition of anti-Semitism that included ‘denying the Jewish people the right to self-determination’ by, for example, ‘claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor’ and ‘applying double standards by requiring of’ Israel ‘a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.'”

It’s extremely strange that The New York Times would all of a sudden describe this particular definition of anti-Semitism as “hotly contested.” The Times itself, as recently as this month, published two articles describing the exact same definition as “internationally accepted.”

On September 4, the Times published a Reuters dispatch: “LONDON — Britain’s opposition Labour Party adopted an internationally accepted definition of anti-Semitism on Tuesday.” An Associated Press dispatch published by the Times the same day begins, “LONDON — Britain’s main opposition Labour Party on Tuesday adopted an internationally recognized definition of anti-Semitism.” On July 26, a Times-written article from London also referred to the same definition as “internationally accepted.”

Got that? When the British Labour Party adopts the definition, the Times describes it, accurately, as “internationally accepted.” Yet when the US government tries to enforce the definition on an American college campus, then all of a sudden the Times describes the definition as “hotly contested.” In fact, the definition is internationally accepted everywhere except in The New York Times newsroom, or at least in that portion of it responsible for the Rutgers article.
Sightless in Bethlehem
“Israel made me hate it” has long been a common theme among Jewish critics of Israel. In fact, New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman practically built his career out of it, winning a Pulitzer Prize for a book based on the claim that he was an uncritical supporter of Israel until he covered the 1982 Lebanon war, where he saw outrageous Israeli behavior that changed his mind.

That version of Friedman’s biography turned out to be a fabrication. In 1990, pro-Israel activists revealed that he actually had been a hostile critic of Israel all the way back to his days as a student at Brandeis University, in the early 1970s. He was the leader of a student group that publicly derided Israel’s Labor government for not negotiating with Yasir Arafat, and condemned the Jewish community for protesting against Arafat’s infamous speech at the United Nations.

But back in 1990, before there was an internet, it wasn’t hard for anyone to get away with misrepresenting his biography. The exposure of Friedman’s lies was buried, and he was soon promoted to the position of op-ed columnist for the Times, a perch from which he has bashed Israel on countless occasions.

Now it looks like a new generation is taking up where Friedman left off in the department of creative autobiographical writing. Case in point: Jacob Plitman, the 27 year-old editor of the far-left magazine Jewish Currents.

Recently, a major article in the New York Jewish Week featured Plitman, describing him as being at the center of an “emerging new Jewish left” that is more willing than its elders to criticize Israel. And how did Plitman get to be a critic of Israel? You guessed it—Israel made him hate it.

As a youngster, “his parents sent him to a Young Judea camp.” Plitman “soaked up its messaging on Israel and Zionism,” so much so that he decided to spend his gap year in Israel. And then came The Great Disillusionment.

“His rosy view of Zionism began to change,” the article reported, when Plitman “visited Bethlehem” (interesting choice for a Jewish tourist) “and came face to face with Palestinians for the first time. ‘The things that I saw there were more powerful than my ability to ignore them’,” Plitman told the Jewish Week. As a result, Plitman and his magazine now devote themselves to railing against “the occupation” and “the settlers.”

That’s his version. But I have my suspicions. Here’s why.


Israel among 'shameful' countries abusing human rights activists, according to U.N.
The United Nations on Wednesday listed Israel among 38 "shameful" countries, which it said had carried out reprisals or intimidation against people cooperating with it on human rights, through killings, torture and arbitrary arrests. Allegations of ill-treatment, surveillance, criminalisation, and public stigmatization campaigns targeting victims and human rights defenders were also included on the list.

Israel earned its spot on the list for it's ongoing legal battle against Human Rights Watch representative Omar Shakir, who's visa wasn't extended and who's deportation was ordered last May on the grounds of supporting the BDS movement. Interior minister Deri who ordered the deportation last May said he acted on the recommendation of the Strategic Affairs who had gathered information showing that Shakir “is an active and consistent supporter of boycotting Israel.”

Humans Right Watch challenged the decision and accused Israel of trying to silence criticism on its human right's record and that going after Shakir was an attempt to go after HRW as a whole.

Shakir remains in the country after the Jerusalem District Court backtracked on its original decision to go through with the deportation and the case remains under review.

The UN report did not highlight how it categorized the case against Shakir and why it would place Israel on the "shameful' list.
This Week in Julia Salazar She had a trust fund, her ancestors were Catholic elites, and she has a new version of her conversion story.
A state senate race that was once hailed as a test of the rising strength and power of insurgent socialists has devolved into a full-fledged New York City tabloid circus, featuring charges of lies, identify fraud, theft, and an affair with New York Mets legend Keith Hernandez.

And that was just last week.

Every time the life story of first-time state senate candidate Julia Salazar, 27, seems it can’t get any more convoluted, it does. First, questions were raised about her religious background and political affiliation, after it was revealed she grew up in a Christian family and was a registered Republican who led an anti-abortion group in college before running for office as a Jewish socialist. Then, her self-identification as an immigrant came under fire — she was born in Miami — and her own brother went to town on her claims that she is from a working-class background. Next came revelations of a complex legal dispute with Hernandez’s wife that had led to Salazar being arrested on identity-impersonation charges; she doggedly pursued a defamation countersuit that was ultimately settled in her favor. Amid that story, legal documents surfaced showing her lawyer pointing to “Ms. Salazar trust Account records showing in excess of $600,000” in assets in 2011 and therefore no incentive to steal from Hernandez’s wife.

Now the campaign has confirmed Salazar has had substantial assets held in trust for her. “Julia’s father, who played a very limited role in raising her after her parents’ divorce, was not able to work due to disability in the final years of his life, but on his death in 2009 he left a house and considerable retirement savings; those assets were put in a trust to be divided evenly between Julia and her brother,” campaign spokesman Michael Kinnucan said. “Julia does not have direct access to the trust; the trustee is a relative in Colombia.”

On September 13, Salazar will face off with incumbent Senator Martin Malavé Dilan; the primary winner is all but assured of victory in November.

Salazar’s bid, which has won endorsements from and/or appearances with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Cynthia Nixon, and Nina Turner of Bernie Sanders’s Our Revolution, has even drawn attention in her father’s homeland of Colombia, where a genealogist’s findings further undermine her early campaign claims of having come from a working-class mixed Jewish-Christian family and raise questions about how aware of her own Colombian heritage she has sought to be, despite her repeated statements identifying with it. Meanwhile, interviews with the candidate and with Jewish religious leaders show her story about converting to Reform Judaism could not have happened as she has described it to multiple reporters, because the person she now says guided her conversion process was not an ordained rabbi and also was, in any case, not affiliated with Columbia University the year she initially said she converted through the Columbia/Barnard Hillel.

According to Maria Emilia Naranjo Ramos, a genealogist with the Colombian Academy of Genealogy and Historic Academy of Córdoba, the Salazars have for generations been a prosperous family in Colombia that has played a prominent role in civic and political life. Far from being the daughter of struggling immigrants of mixed Jewish-Catholic religious heritage, which early news reports described her as based on her statements and those of her campaign, Julia Salazar is the scion of longtime Latin-American Catholic elites.
Citizens Union drops endorsement of Julia Salazar, citing 'not correct' information about her academic credentials
A good government group has withdrawn its backing of Julia Salazar for state Senate, saying the candidate provided information about her academic credentials that proved to be incorrect.

Citizens Union had previously issued its “preference” — the term the group uses rather than endorsement — for Salazar, whose campaign has been plagued in recent weeks by revelations about misrepresentations of her past religious and political beliefs and her immigration status.

“Citizens Union is hereby rescinding the preference it expressed for Julia Salazar in the Democratic Primary for New York State Senate District 18,” Randy Mastro, the chair of the group, said in a statement. “Salazar recently admitted that the information she originally provided to Citizens Union about her academic credentials was not correct, so Citizens Union has decided to express no preference in this race.”

A campaign spokesman called it an “error in her endorsement application.”

"Julia regrets that an error in her endorsement application led to Citizens Union rescinding its endorsement, but remains committed to working with Citizens Union and others opposed to Albany corruption if elected to take money out of politics and clean up Albany,” he said.

Gillum Aligns With Groups That Support Boycotts of Israel
Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum has aligned himself with several prominent anti-Semitic organizations known for promoting boycotts of Jewish goods and individuals, fueling questions about how the Democratic candidate would handle issues of import to the state's large pro-Israel community.

Gillum, who is riding a progressive a wave of young Democrats highly critical of Israel, is running against Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.), a prominent Israel supporter. The Democrat has a history of working with several organizations promoting the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, or BDS, an anti-Semitic movement that seeks to wage economic and political warfare on the Jewish state.

Gillum's open association with these organizations is raising questions in the pro-Israel community, particularly as U.S. states seek to slash ties with BDS organizations and prevent taxpayer funds from supporting these movements. While Gillum has committed to "push back against anti-Israel efforts, like BDS," he has not distanced himself from several organizations leading the charge.

DeSantis, meanwhile, has positioned himself firmly against the BDS movement and is the co-author of legislation that will protect American businesses from being pressured into backing Israel boycotts. The issue is likely to be raised with both candidates as the gubernatorial contest heats up in a state with many Jewish voters.

DeSantis said he is concerned and dismayed by Gillum's ties to radical anti-Israel groups.

"In all my years in Florida, I’ve never seen a candidate for state office who has been as anti-Israel as Andrew Gillum," DeSantis told the Washington Free Beacon in an interview. "He opposes our embassy in Jerusalem, he does not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s eternal and indivisible capital, and he even criticizes Israel’s response against Hamas [militants] in May of 2018. His anti-Israel views are part and parcel of his overall far left wing, Democrat socialist agenda. He doesn’t share the values of the vast majority of people in Florida with his position."
Former ambassador to U.N. Prosor writes scathing piece against Corbyn
Prosor wrote that during his tenure as ambassador to the UK from 2007 to 2011, “the extreme-Left had started to dominate debate on Israel, not with rational, legitimate criticism but with irrational, racist hatred. I saw antisemitic poison, tropes of ‘Zionist control,’ being injected from the political fringes into the arteries of British public life. Demonstrations outside my embassy turned violent.”

Prosor said that Corbyn was neither the most charismatic or the smartest of the politicians who attended anti-Israel gatherings at the time, “but he was without doubt one of the most committed. As was his director of strategy, Seamus Milne.”

Corbyn,” according to Prosor, “can’t solve Labour’s antisemitism problem, because he embodies it.” He called the Labour Party leader an “equal opportunities terrorist sympathizer,” saying that whatever the terrorist group – be it the PLO, Hezbollah, or Hamas – they could count on Corbyn’s support as long as their target was Israelis or Jews.

“Corbyn didn’t invent the crank politics of conspiracy theory and Jew-hatred. But he has taken it from the fringe meetings of the far-Left and placed it on the front-benches of the House of Commons,” Prosor wrote.

He concluded: “This is not just an issue for the Labour Party, or for a British Jewish community feeling threatened and vulnerable. Corbyn is an embarrassment for Britain. Around the world, all who, as I do, love and admire Britain are watching and hoping that the British public, famed for their decency, tolerance and sense of fair play, stand together and say, enough is enough.”
Top Corbyn aide said working in parliament despite rejected security clearance
A top aide to UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was refused clearance required to work in parliament over security concerns but has worked there regularly anyway, entering with the help of other staff members, Huffington Post UK reported Wednesday.

Corbyn’s private secretary Iram Awan was hired in late 2017 but was denied clearance due to concerns by security services over her associates, the report said. There were no details on who those associates were or how they could compromise security.

Despite this, Awan has regularly been working in the Commons, the report said, with other Labour staffers routinely meeting her at the entrance and waving her in to security personnel, apparently as a supposed visitor. The report alleged that this behavior has been practiced for the past nine months.

“Visitor passes are for visitors only,” a parliament spokesperson told the news site. “They cannot be used to carry out work on the parliamentary estate. While we are unable to comment on specific cases, any alleged breach of the rules on passes will be investigated by the House authorities.”

The report said little is known of Awan, but noted that she has donated to Helping Households Under Great Stress, a group that seeks to “provide financial, emotional, and practical support and advice to Muslim households impacted by counter-terrorism, national security and extremism-related laws, policies and procedures in the UK and abroad.”
Another Top Corbyn Aide Working Without Security Clearance
Another top Corbyn adviser, Andrew Murray, has reportedly been working in the Labour Leader’s Commons office for eight months without the required security clearance. His application has been pending for over a year..

Andrew Murray was a member of the Communist Party of Great Britain until he joined Labour two years ago.

A quick glance at the parliamentary pass application form might explain why so many of Corbyn’s team have been having trouble. Question 30 asks if applicants have ever been associated with people or groups who have “intended to overthrow or undermine Parliamentary democracy by political, industrial, or violent means?” A number of Corbyn’s top team are probably going to need more than half a page to give full details on that one…
British MP of Palestinian Descent Condemns “anti-Semitic” Posters, as Labour Party Investigates Infiltration by Iran
A British Member of Parliament of Palestinian Arab descent has denounced the defacing of bus-stops in London with “Israel is a racist endeavour” posters as “blatantly anti-Semitic,” The Jewish Chronicle reported Thursday.

Liberal Democrat MP Layla Moran, who represents Oxford West and Abingdon, told the BBC: “I’m a Palestinian… The fact that this has come from a group that purportedly is speaking for Palestinians, I take great offence at myself, because I think it is blatantly antisemitic.” She clarified that “there are extremes in the Israeli government… But to say that an entire country is racist is entirely wrong.”

Moran was responding to comments made by Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, a close ally of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who stated that “It is not at all anti-Semitic to describe a state as racist.”

The posters were meant to mock the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism, which Labour reluctantly adopted in full last week with a caveat vowing “free speech” on Israel. The IHRA definition, which gives calling “a state of Israel… a racist endeavour” as an example of anti-Semitism.
Why Rachel Shabi's 'alliance of colour' will go nowhere
Our token Mizrahi Corbynista has been gracing the columns of the Guardian as a pundit commentating on local politics. But on the question of the antisemitism rampant in the far-left of the UK Labour party, a note of anguish has been creeping into our Shabi's writings.
Rachel Shabi

In response to a Labour centrist MP's charge that Labour is 'institutionally racist', her latest piece acknowledges that antisemitism is a real problem in Jeremy Corbyn's faction. What about anti-Zionism? Is there such a thing as antisemitic anti-Zionism? 'Zionism is both racist and anti-racist', she fence-sits unhelpfully, despite having written a book portraying Mizrahim as victims of Israel's Ashkenazi establishment.

She finds the view common among leftwing ideologues that Jews are 'white' allies of the Christian West to be wrong. "We are a racialised minority' she protests. She herself is a Mizrahi Jew of Iraqi origin.

Her answer is to start a Jewish-black-Asian-Muslim alliance that would relaunch Jews as 'people of colour'. This alliance is not based on shared Judeo-Christian values. 'If there is a historic sharing of values it is a Jewish-Muslim one,' she writes.
Corbyn in 2015 – let British jihadis travel to Syria
Jeremy Corbyn’s antisemitic record has been under scrutiny for several weeks now, and rightly so. But let’s not forget other issues which are important, starting with our own national security.

He should never be entrusted with the security of the United Kingdom. It would be seriously endangered.

Look back to early 2015. Islamic State was on the march. No wonder – its strength and confidence had been boosted by a big influx of foreign fighters from Europe. They included Britain’s very own “Jihadi John”, who began his beheading spree in 2014.

Those fighters were a top priority for Western intelligence services, in large part because there were fears they could return to the West deeply indoctrinated, highly trained, and ready to carry out devastating terrorist attacks.

Jeremy Corbyn was asked about this issue at the time. He didn’t sound very convinced.
UK's Corbyn stuns by blasting Hungarian PM for anti-Semitism
British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn accused Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban of "pandering to anti-Semitism" ahead of a vote in the European Parliament over whether to censure Hungary for breaching core EU values.

Corbyn, himself under fire for rampant anti-Semitism in his party and for his own anti-Israel and anti-Semitic comments, stunned with a tweet on Tuesday that said, "Labour MEPs will vote to hold Viktor Orban's government in Hungary to account. The Conservatives must do the same, and [British Prime Minister] Theresa May should condemn his attacks on judicial and media independence, denial of refugee rights, and pandering to anti-Semitism and Islamophobia."

Labour has been battling accusations of anti-Semitism for months, and Corbyn has previously apologized for what he has described as "pockets" of anti-Semitism in his party.

Former U.K. Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks has called Corbyn an anti-Semite and said comments revealed last week that Corbyn made about British Zionists five years ago were the most offensive by a senior U.K. politician in half a century.
Anti-Israel Satmar group forges UK rabbis’ pro-Corbyn letter
A hassidic group disseminated a letter in support of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has come under fire for supporting antisemites, in which the signatures of haredi leaders in the UK were forged.

The Jewish Community Council of North London tweeted overnight Tuesday to “confirm and clarify this letter is fake and bears no authority from any of the assigned names.”


The letter, purportedly from the leadership of London’s haredi umbrella organization, the Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations, claims to have the support of the UOHC’s Principal Rabbinical Authority Ephraim Padwa, Senior Dayan (religious court judge) S. Friedman, and 27 others.

US takes on anti-Israel BDS activities on university campuses
The U.S. Education Department's Office of Civil Rights has decided to adopt the international definition of anti-Semitism, which defines Judaism not only as a religion but also an ethnicity and includes holding Jews responsible for Israel's actions as a form of anti-Semitism, Israel Hayom learned Wednesday.

According to a letter written by Assistant Education Secretary for Civil Rights Kenneth L. Marcus to the Zionist Organization of America, anyone who acts "to deny the right of the Jewish people to self-determination, on the grounds that the State of Israel's existence is a racist endeavor" or applies double standards to Israel that it does not apply to any other democratic country will be deemed an anti-Semite.

The ZOA lauded what it called the "groundbreaking decision," saying, "This definition accurately addresses how anti-Semitism is expressed today; it recognizes that Jew-hatred can be camouflaged as anti-Israelism or anti-Zionism. The OCR is not only reassessing the evidence already in the record; the agency is also going to determine whether a hostile environment for Jewish students currently exists at Rutgers [University]."

Pro-Palestinian activists in the United States have warned the move will hinder pro-Palestinian efforts as any such activity will be deemed anti-Semitic.
Daphne Anson: Rogues with a Brogue
In Belfast on Tuesday, heavily outnumbering pro-Israel counter-protesters, dozens of raucous members of an outfit calling itself BDS Ireland (part of part of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement along with Sinn Fein) yell their opposition to Northern Ireland's first friendly football match against Israel in Windsor Park. Over 5,000 Israel-haters signed a petition demanding the match's cancellation, but the match went ahead, the home team winning by 3 goals to nil.


Footballer James Rodríguez Caves In To Israel Haters After Being Subjected to Online Abuse
Colombian footballer James Rodríguez, considered one of the best players of his generation, was recently in Israel. And he wanted his almost 100 million (!) followers on social media to know just how amazing it is here. So he posted the following on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

The Israeli flag triggered the haters, resulting in the young footballer being subjected to a barrage of hate – which he clearly was not prepared for. Unfortunately, he caved in, and replaced the tweet and postings with the identical picture and wording, sans Israeli flag.

Interestingly enough, his next posting is still up, despite clearly identifying Israel and not “Palestine.”
Honest Reporting: Surf’s Up in Gaza: Riding the Anti-Israel Wave
In a long and somewhat labyrinthine article in The Independent, author and academic Andy Martin focuses on a documentary film about a Palestinian surfing club in Gaza.

Feeding the prejudices of The Independent’s readership, every activity in Gaza, even leisure, is turned into an opportunity to attack Israel and spread inaccuracies and falsehoods.

Martin makes it crystal-clear what he thinks about Israel:
Set aside the whole dubious history of Israel, the events of 1948 that the Palestinians refer to as the Nakba (or “Catastrophe”), the Six Day War, the occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, the continued imperial expansion and slow-motion ethnic cleansing known euphemistically as “settlement”. Even set aside, most recently, the “Nation State” law that spells out, reiterates and reinforces a condition of apartheid. Do you want to know the final straw? They won’t allow surfboards into Gaza. They are obviously part of some sinister Hamas-inspired conspiracy. They may exhibit coded subversive messages on stickers applied to their decks, such as “Life’s a beach”, or “Surf’s Up, Dude”.

Are surfboards “illegal” in Gaza?

So let’s set aside the whole dubious references to “ethnic cleansing” and “apartheid” that Martin casually tosses into the water and deal with his allegations regarding surfboards. Are they really “illegal” in Gaza as the article and the headline suggest?
Merkel: ‘No excuse’ for far-right violence, attack on kosher restaurant
Chancellor Angela Merkel assured parliament Wednesday she takes seriously Germans’ concerns about crimes committed by migrants and pledged a strong response, but condemned recent demonstrations as “hateful,” saying there is “no excuse” for expressions of hate, Nazi sympathies or violence in response.

The comments come after the killing of a German man for which an Iraqi and a Syrian have been arrested prompted days of anti-migrant protests in the eastern German city of Chemnitz that at times turned violent.

Neo-Nazis were seen giving the stiff-armed Hitler salute in the largest demonstration, the day after the killing, which attracted some 6,000 people, and on the sidelines of the protest masked men threw stones and bottles at a kosher restaurant yelling “Jewish pig, get out of Germany.”

The day before, in spontaneous protests by hundreds immediately after the killing, several foreigners were attacked and injured in the streets.

Merkel assured lawmakers that her government was equally aware of its responsibility to take the wider concerns of the public seriously, and that it was working with “all resolution” on the issue.

“We are especially troubled by the severe crimes in which the alleged perpetrators were asylum-seekers,” she said. “This shocks us… (and) such crimes must be investigated, the perpetrators have to be taken to court and punished with the severity of the law.”
Pig guts thrown at office of Australian lawmaker whose wife is Jewish
The district office of an Australian member of Parliament whose wife is Jewish was targeted by racists who threw pig’s entrails at the front door.

The early Wednesday morning attack follows an earlier attack by the neo-Nazi group Antipodean Resistance on September 1 on another office belonging to the same MP, Labor lawmaker Mike Kelly, in which the group plastered swastika stickers on the door.

Mike Kelly’s wife is Jewish.

The attack involving the pig’s entrails took place in the New South Wales city of Queanbeyan, located just 10 miles from Australia’s capital Canberra. The swastika attack took place in the coastal town of Bega, 135 miles from Queanbeyan.

A former military attorney, Col. Mike Kelly joined the Australian military serving in Somalia, East Timor and Bosnia, and was among senior Australian military personnel who served in the Iraq War. In 1993, he was awarded the Chief of the General Staff Commendation.

“The series of attacks directed at my electorate offices are evidence of the need for constant vigilance and the confrontation of extremist groups in our country,” Kelly told JTA.

“If the perpetrators think that they will intimidate me into refraining from defending Israel or supporting our Jewish community they are deluded,” Kelly said. “Actions like this only spur me to greater efforts and commitment. I have faced much worse threats in my Army career and I will continue to fight racism and ignorance wherever I find it.”

An 82-year-old retired architect, Sztykgold immigrated to Israel after surviving the Holocaust in Poland. He tries in vain to recognize something from what used to be his childhood home.

“It’s no use,” he says after a while. “To me this could be anywhere.”

Sztykgold’s unfamiliarity with the part of Grzybowska Street where he spent his earliest years is not due to any memory loss. Like most of Warsaw, his parents’ apartment building was completely bombed out during the war and leveled, along with the rest of the street. His former home is now a placid park that is a favorite hangout for mothers pushing baby carriages and pensioners his age.

The dramatic changes in Warsaw’s landscape have bedeviled efforts for decades to obtain restitution for privately owned properties like Sztykgold’s childhood home, making it difficult for survivors like him to identify assets that may have belonged to their families.

But for many restitution claimants in the capital, identifying assets will become easier thanks to a recent breakthrough with an unlikely source: the establishment of a first-of-its-kind searchable database. Users need only type in the name of their family to obtain a complete overview of all the assets they may claim under a new restitution drive in Warsaw.
Israel’s Ride Vision plans to make motorcycling safer
As the race heats up toward the launch of autonomous vehicles, state-of-the-art technologies like ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) are being designed to prevent collisions. But motorcycles have been largely overlooked in the process.

According to a 2018 US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, fatalities in traffic crashes occur nearly 28 times more frequently for motorcycles than for passenger car occupants, and motorcycle drivers comprise 17 percent of all driver- and passenger-related fatalities. There were 5,286 fatal motorcycle crashes in 2016 in the US, a 5.1 percent increase from 2015, according to NHTSA.

Uri Lavi and Lior Cohen are avid motorcycle riders who want to bring computer safety smarts to two-wheelers. Their company Ride Vision just raised a $2.5 million seed round from YL Ventures for its patented CAT (Collision Aversion Technology) for motorcycles.

Lavi and Cohen previously worked together in Israel’s homeland security industry. Lavi went on to become CEO of PicScout and brought in Cohen to serve as VP of R&D.

PicScout developed a technology for identifying images on the web that may have been used or modified without permission and then notifying the copyright owners. The company was acquired in 2011 by Getty Images for $20 million.

Lavi and Cohen gained expertise in technologies such as artificial intelligence, neural networks, computer vision and threat detection that is relevant in their newest venture, though it is quite different.
’70s rock band America heading to Israel to ‘give everyone a night off’
When Dewey Bunnell and Gerry Beckley of the soft rock band America finally arrive in Israel for their long-planned October 9 and 10 performances in Caesarea, they intend to not only entertain the crowds, but also to learn a little about the country.

“We’re all geared up to see stuff,” said Bunnell, who splits his time between homes in Wisconsin and Los Angeles, and has never been to Israel.

Bunnell, 66, and Beckley, 65, are two of the original members of the 1970s-era band, which has been performing continuously since it began as a high school cover band.

They had planned to perform in Israel in the summer of 2014, but canceled due to the conflict in Gaza.

Even now, said Bunnell, speaking from his lakeside home in Wisconsin, he doesn’t know that much about Israel and its political situation.

“Every place has their issues, and I have to profess, I’m not versed in Israel,” he said. “I obviously follow the news, but the region is new to me. It’s just a matter of us going in with our eyes wide open and enjoying it. Our job is to entertain people; we’ve always made that point.”
Kim Kardashian signs deal with Israeli eyewear company
World-famous supermodel and reality TV star Kim Kardashian West will be heading back to Israel next year.

Israeli sunglasses company Carolina Lemke Berlin announced Wednesday that Kardashian West has signed a deal to join Bar Refaeli - the face of the brand - in an upcoming collaboration.

Supermodel and reality TV star Kim Kardashian West will be heading back to Israel next year.

Israeli sunglasses company Carolina Lemke Berlin announced Wednesday that Kardashian West has signed a deal to join Bar Refaeli – the face of the brand – in an upcoming collaboration.

The supermodel will fly to Israel in March “for a visit as part of our cooperation,” the company said. In addition to appearing in advertisements for the brand, Kardashian West will also design her own line of glasses for a limited-edition series sold by Carolina Lemke.

In a press release on Wednesday, the company said it selected Kardashian West, “the most famous woman in the United States, to be the face of the brand for at least two years, beginning in summer 2019.” The company said it will also be launching a website aimed at selling its products in the United States. Until now, the brand has been focused on Israel and Europe.
Afghan man sends gravely ill kids to heart center in Israel
Noorina is five years old and lives in Afghanistan. In July, her father brought her to Israel for lifesaving heart surgery arranged by Save a Child’s Heart (SACH), an Israeli medical charity based at Wolfson Medical Center in Holon.

When she is older, Noorina may be surprised to learn that an Afghan stranger willingly put himself and his family at risk to give her the gift of health.

Noorina was the fifth child from Afghanistan sent to SACH through the efforts of that same young Muslim father, who asked ISRAEL21c to call him Jangzapali, a pseudonym to hide his true identity.

“Jangzapali,” he explains, “means ‘victim of war.’”

Jangzapali is involved in all types of charity work and has built up an international social-media network over the past few years. Children needing urgent medical care are his top priority.

“Almost 10,000 [medical need] cases are registered with the Afghan Red Crescent. They are unable to do all cases, so through our broad network on social media, we arrange surgery for poor children in Afghanistan or India. For complicated cases they cannot handle, we work with Save a Child’s Heart,” he says.
Artist turns Kassam rockets into flowers and mezuzahs
Holding aloft a missile fragment, Gaza-area artist Yaron Bob explains to a Kann interviewer that not long ago the projectile had penetrated an Israeli car.

"The incredible Iron Dome is Israel's missile defense system. When rockets are fired into Israel, the Iron Dome shoots a missile to intercept the rocket, preventing destruction and the murder of innocent lives," says the description of one item on Bob's website.

"Bring Israel's heavenly protection into your home with this limited-edition Mezuzah made from an actual Iron Dome missile!"

"I cut it into rectangles, polish it, and craft the mezuzot. My mezuzot get grabbed up all over the world. They cost between $150-200."

Asked how much profit he can extract from a single Kassam missile, Bob makes a quick calculation and answers "About $2,000 per Kassam."

A tour of his storage area reveals a representative variety of the weapons constantly aimed at Israel's children: "Here are rockets that fell a month ago; this one's a 120mm, this one's a Grad. Wanna see a whole Grad?" he asks deferentially, and lifts one from the pile. "Made in China," he says. "This one here fell in Dimona."

The interviewer asks Bob,"How do you have all these types?" and Bob retorts, "How do they?"




We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.

          Thread: Leaving Earth:: Variants:: Real time variant       Cache   Translate Page      

by newobj

Playing my first game tonight, solo, and I’ve been stuck in planning hell/heaven for 1965 - seriously for like 45 minutes trying to plan a trip to the moon and back.

Makes me feel like the AP in this game and downtime must be insane in multiplayer. The planning brain burn feels soooo good but might not be practical for game nights.

I feel like limiting each person’s turn to X minutes (perhaps scales inversely with player count) effectively makes it a real time game because you might not be able to fully math the thing out in time and might simply opt for buying an extra rocket to be sure etc. That seems like it would really amplify the “push your luck” racing aspect of this game, not to mention put a hard cap on play time (Sidereal Confluence has a similar Round x Round Time mechanism in place.

Anyway I haven’t finish my first game yet so I know it’s silly to propose a variant but I was kinda relishing the WOW of the planning in this game but staggered at how long I had been in AP and realized how exhiliratibg a “pencils down” aspect to the game could be

REALLY enjoying this so far!

          Rod Strikland      Cache   Translate Page      
Fue elegido en la decimonovena posición de la primera ronda del Draft de la NBA de 1988 por New York Knicks,4​ lo cual desconcertó a los aficionados neoyorkinos, ya que contaban en el equipo con el rookie del año de la temporada anterior, Mark Jackson, ocupando el mismo puesto que Strickland.5​ Saliendo desde el banquillo, Hot Rod terminó la temporada promediando 8,9 puntos y 3,9 asistencias,6​ lo que le valió para ser incluido en el segundo mejor quinteto de rookies de la NBA.7​

Viendo que tener dos jóvenes promesas en el mismo puesto podía suponer problemas, mediada la temporada 1989-90, los Knicks decidieron traspasar a Strickland a San Antonio Spurs, a cambio del veterano Maurice Cheeks,8​ que con 33 años asumiría mejor su papel de segundo base del equipo. Jugó de titular en 24 de los 31 partidos que disputó de la fase regular con los Spurs, consiguiendo el equipo un gran balance de 16 victorias y 8 derrotas en los mismos. Brilló además en los 10 partidos que disputó de los playoffs, promediando 12,3 puntos, 11,23 asistencias y 5,3 rebotes por partido.9​ El las dos siguientes temporadas se consolidaría como el base titular del equipo, con promedios que no bajaron de los 13 puntos y las 8 asistencias, a pesar de que entre ambas temporadas se perdiera casi 50 partidos por diferentes lesiones en la rodilla y en su mano derecha.

En la temporada 1992-93, una vez finalizado su contrato con los Spurs, se convirtió en agente libre, fichando en tal condición por Portland Trail Blazers.8​ Allí permaneció durante cuatro temporadas, compartiendo el puesto de base con Terry Porter, y promediando en ellas 17 puntos y 8,6 asistencias.10​

En una transacción que inicialmente beneficiaba a ambas franquicias, Strickland y su compañero de equipo Harvey Grant fueron traspasados a los Washington Bullets a cambio de Rasheed Wallace y Mitchell Butler en 1996.8​ En su primera temporada en la capital promedió 17,2 puntos y 8,9 asistencias, ayudando a los Bullets a alcanzar los playoffs por vez primera en 8 temporadas.


La temporada 1997-98 fue la mejor de su carrera, tras promediar 17,8 puntos y 10,5 asistencias por partido,12​ liderando la liga en este último aspecto con una diferencia de 1,4 asistencias sobre el segundo, Jason Kidd,13​ y llegando a ser el vigésimo quinto jugador de la historia de la NBA en alcanzar los 10.000 puntos y 5.000 asistencias.14​ Aunque fue seleccionado en el segundo mejor quinteto de la NBA,10​ no fue elegido para disputar el All-Star de 1998, declarando que renunciaría al año siguiente si fuese elegido. Nunga llegó a disputar un All-Star Game. A pesar de todo ello, los Wizards, nueva denominación del equipo, no alcanzaron los playoffs.12​ Durante las siguientes dos temporadas sus números siguieron siendo muy destacados, pero el juego del equipo seguía sin convencer, acabando por rescindir el contrato de Strickland mediada la temporada 2000-01.

Regresó el 5 de marzo de 2001 a los Blazers, firmando como agente libre.8​ A pesar de que en su debut en esta nueva etapa en Portland prometía, tras conseguir 8 puntos y 5 asistencias en los 16 minutos que disputó,14​ su puesto en el equipo fue el de tercer base, tras Damon Stoudamire y Greg Anthony, disputando poco más de 16 minutos por partido, en los que promedió 4,6 puntos y 3,4 asistencias en los 21 partidos en los que jugó.15​

Tras finalizar su contrato con los Blazers, en la temporada 2001-02, y ya con 35 años, fichó por los Miami Heat, que necesitaban de un base veterano y solvente, volviendo a ocupar una plaza en el cinco inicial. Realizó una buena temporada, promediando 10,4 puntos y 6,1 asistencias, pero a pesar de ello no vio renovado su contrato. A partir de ese momento, en pleno declive, jugó sus tres últimas temporadas en la NBA a base de contratos temporales, haciéndolo en equipos como Minnesota Timberwolves, Orlando Magic, Toronto Raptors o Houston Rockets, donde dio por finalizada su carrera en la liga profesional norteamericana disputando 16 partidos en la temporada 2004-05. En sus 17 temporadas promedió 13,2 puntos y 7,3 asistencias, siendo uno de los 20 mejores pasadores de la historia de la NBA.1

          Throwback Thursday Review: Convergence: Superman #2 (2015)      Cache   Translate Page      

Oh, Baby!

Written by: Dan Jurgens
Art by: Dan Jurgens, Norm Rapmund and Brad Anderson
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: May 6, 2015

I loved last month's Convergence: Superman and was so looking forward to this month's finale.  Dan Jurgens did such a fine job setting up both parts of the story that even if I wasn't familiar with the character's home worlds and stories, I still could follow every bit of it and become fully invested in what was going on.  The best part?  This was the only book in the entire Event where I actually had feelings of wanting both sides to win.  Sure, Pre-Flashpoint Superman and Lois were on the top of the list of favorites (Lois is pregnant for Christ's sake), but Flashpoint Thomas Wayne and even Subject One Superman were sentimental favorites as well.  However, the crazy cliffhanger last month had me wanting Superman to kick some serious ass and I was not disappointed.  Was the rest of the issue as good?  Let's find out...


The issue starts off with Flashpoint Batman and it not only fills us in on what happened last month but throws in a little Flashpoint history lesson.  It may have been little, but it made me smile.  That was something I did a lot while reading this issue and I'm even doing while writing this review.  This may be a bit of a spoiler, but I loved this issue.



From there we visit with Superman as he fights Captain Thunder, Cyborg and Abin Sur.  Jimmy Olsen is there (in his rocket car) and I think that Superman forgot that Jimmy pretty much ruined any diplomacy last month by coming in guns a blazing.  Oh well, Jimmy is Superman's pal so forgive and forget, I guess.  The battle is exciting, but when Cyborg attacks Superman and Superman fires back it may be the best couple pages I've seen in a long while.  It also shows Cyborg and the Flashpoint boys that this Kryptonian is a bit more powerful than their Subject One.

Speaking of that scrawny Man of Steel, last month's cliffhanger showed him kidnapping the very pregnant Lois Lane and we see why.  First, he loves her.  Second, he wants Thomas Wayne to deliver the baby.  With all the serious business going on, Thomas Wayne's reaction to Subject One easily finding the Batcave was priceless.



When Superman gets free of his Flashpoint aggressors (thanks to Jimmy) and follows a clever Lois to the Batcave, Thomas Wayne's reaction goes from hilarious to laugh out loud funny.  So much for his secret little cave. 

After quickly taking care of Subject One, Superman helps deliver his son and fans of Lois and Clarke get what they've been waiting for.  The only thing that bothered me at all was when SSupermanrejects the name Jor for his son.  The issue ends with a nice moment with Thomas Wayne asking Superman about his own son and Lois and Clarke looking so happy, holding the newest Kent.



Okay, this book didn't have much of a Convergence ending.  Who won?  What city is going to dissolve into nothingness?  We don't get any answers on that front, but what we do get is a satisfyingly great Superman story.  And Lois story,  And Thomas Wayne story.  Dan Jurgens does such a great job of weaving such a powerful narrative in just two issues.  The bad thing...I want more!

I also want more Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund art.  This is on the top of my list of best looking Convergence books and the part I mentioned of Cyborg and Superman fighting was awesome!  Guess what?  So was everything else.

Bits and Pieces:

Last Month's Superman #1 was my best reviewed issue of the first month and I liked this one even better.  The only thing keeping it from a perfect score is that we don't get much of a Convergence ending.  We do get a hell of a Superman story filled with great characters and superb art.  Highly Recommended.

          US threatens Iran over attack on consulate in Basra      Cache   Translate Page      

The United States has threatened Iran with a response over the unrest in the Iraqi city of Basra, saying Tehran will be held accountable for any possible harm to the American citizens stationed there.

The White House issued the warning on Tuesday, days after protests over alleged corruption and government neglect escalated into deadly violence in the oil-rich port city.

At least 12 protesters were killed in Basra and many of its institutions and buildings.

Meanwhile, three mortar shells struck the ultra-secure green zone in Baghdad, which houses Iraqi authorities and the US Embassy, on Friday and unknown assailants fired Katyusha rockets at the airport in Basra, which also houses the US consulate, on Saturday.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders blamed Iran. “Over the past few days, we have seen life-threatening attacks in Iraq, including on the United States consulate in Basra and against the American embassy compound in Baghdad.”

“Iran did not act to stop these attacks by its proxies in Iraq, which it has supported with funding, training, and weapons,” she added.
