          Morgan Stanley brokers, bankers to get new tech-friendly offices      Cache   Translate Page      

Morgan Stanley is remodeling.

About 1.2 million square feet of office space will get an overhaul in the next 15 months to put technology experts closer to brokers, traders and bankers, the firm’s head of technology, Rob Rooney, said in an interview. After changes to wealth-management operations, trading floors, investment-banking offices and space tied to asset management will all get a remake.

“The workplace needed to be designed around a much more dynamic, millennial kind of workforce,” said Rooney, 51, who stepped into the technology role this year. “We’re trying to attract the next generation of the best and brightest.”

Demolition work in lower Manhattan has already created open floor plans that give more employees views of the Statue of Liberty and Hudson River, a perk previously reserved for senior executives cloistered in their wood-walled offices. Now, glass partitions and interactive whiteboards abound, and the dress code is decidedly more casual.

The first phase represents about 9,000 seats around the world, though the project may expand, Rooney said.

Morgan Stanley’s past technology investments helped make it the biggest stock-trading firm in the world, and Chief Executive Officer James Gorman has said it’s a major priority to replicate that success in bond markets. The bank, which also has a $2.4 trillion wealth-management division, is spending $4 billion annually on the effort, including the building of what it calls “Centers of Excellence” to focus on blockchain, automation and other technologies.

With 18 million transactions a day on the firm’s electronic-trading platform for equities, pushing the efficiency envelope “is kind of challenging the speed of light,” Rooney said. “If you’re an engineer, these are real problems you’re trying to solve.”

In wealth management, where a lot of the initial office changes will roll out, the bank built algorithms and is using machine learning to help more than 15,000 brokers make trade suggestions for clients and handle more routine tasks.

The overhaul is one of Wall Street’s biggest. WeWork Cos. last year began helping UBS Group AG update wealth-management offices in Weehawken, New Jersey. Also in 2017, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. unveiled the largest revamp of its trading hub since 2009, when about 500 asset managers were moved into an open floor plan.

Modernization isn’t optional for a firm like Morgan Stanley, said Ekene Ezulike, global head of corporate services. “The question is how quickly we do it, versus whether we should do it,” he said.

As little as 60% of Morgan Stanley’s work space is occupied at any given time, according to Ezulike, who said the changes will push that rate as high as 90% as options such as desk sharing let more people use fewer seats.

Despite the less stuffy dress code and other updates, Morgan Stanley shouldn’t be confused with a Silicon Valley startup, Rooney said.

“We’re not a technology firm, we’re a bank,” Rooney said. “We don’t sell technology, we sell advice.”

While there’s no kombucha on tap as there is at Goldman Sachs’s revamped San Francisco offices, there are common dining rooms, and the firm hired its first-ever community manager, Fiona Thomas. She helps plan office get-togethers and is overseeing a meditation event that was oversubscribed.

Morgan Stanley’s executives approved the project, called “Workplace Evolution,” in March and some spaces were fully revamped in months, with help from WeWork and the architectural firm Gensler. The first set of changes included offices in New York, Houston, Frankfurt, Chicago, Glasgow, Budapest, London, Mumbai and Bangalore.

The firm’s headquarters in Times Square—which is about 1.3 million square feet—will also see changes, Rooney said. The capital-markets division for the wealth-management unit will be revamped this year. The technology division and back-office functions tied to finance are also being renovated.

“Our traders need to be with our techies,” Rooney said. “You’ll see a very different trading floor in five years time than you see today.”

          President Trump, Stop and Frisk Is Both Unconstitutional and Ineffective      Cache   Translate Page      
Whether in Chicago, New York, or any city, indiscriminate stop and frisk is riddled with racial disparities and is unconstitutional.

On Monday, President Trump gave a speech to the nation’s police chiefs. Like so many of his “law and order” speeches, it was fueled by bravado and falsehoods.  

In the speech, Trump defended stop-and-frisk policies that have been ruled unconstitutional and rejected by communities in numerous cities. He also urged the city of Chicago to “try to change the terrible deal the city of Chicago entered into with ACLU” on tracking the use of stop and frisk. Trump railed against “efforts from politicians to shackle local police departments” by limiting their cooperation with ICE, and he touted his record of providing surplus military equipment to local police departments.

Trump’s distortions must be called out one by one. Here is a breakdown of the most dangerous falsehoods in his speech:

Trump claim: “Before I took office less than two years ago, our nation was experiencing a historic surge in violent crime.”

According to the Brennan Center for Justice, the U.S. violent crime rate peaked in 1991 and has remained stable at about half that rate for the past several years. In 2016 and 2017, the violent crime rate remained essentially stable at near the bottom of this three-decade downward trend, and preliminary indications are that these low crime rates are continuing to remain stable and low.

In other words, there was no historic surge in violent crime because crime was stable at historically low levels when Trump first took office.

Trump claim: Indiscriminate stop-and-frisk “works, and it was meant for problems like Chicago,” which is why he is asking Attorney General Sessions to “work with local authorities to try to change the terrible deal the city of Chicago entered into with ACLU, which ties law enforcement’s hands.”

Indiscriminate stop-and-frisk does not stop violent crime. Indeed, after New York City ended its stop-and-frisk policies under court supervision, the number of street stops by police fell dramatically — the number of stops in 2015 was less than 5 percent of the number of stops in 2011 — and as those stops fell, the homicide rate also continued to fall to record lows.

Aside from being ineffective in limiting crime, indiscriminate stop-and-frisk is unconstitutional, results in enormous racial disparities, erodes community trust in the police, and makes people of color less likely to report crimes. A 2013 study by the Vera Institute of Justice found that each time a young person is stopped and frisked by police, it makes them 8 percent less likely to report a future violent crime against them to police. Nearly 60 percent of the young people surveyed by the Vera Institute stated that they would not feel comfortable asking a police officer for help if they were in trouble.

That’s why the ACLU has repeatedly sued to end indiscriminate stop-and-frisk policies. We’ve reached settlements that require police to abide by constitutional limits in their stop-and-frisk activities in Milwaukee, New York City, and Philadelphia. Meanwhile, our 2015 settlement in Chicago required data collection and oversight of stop and frisk, and we are pushing for adoption of a broader consent decree there.

Notably, none of these lawsuits seek to prohibit all police stops and frisks. They simply require that these actions be supported by the reasonable suspicion required by the Fourth Amendment and prohibit racially biased patterns of enforcement that are patently unconstitutional.

Trump claim: “[S]anctuary city policies force the release of criminal aliens and gang members right back onto our streets, putting innocent civilians at grave risk — many people being killed.”

So-called “sanctuary city” policies are not targeted at people who have committed crimes, quite the contrary. They are intended to safeguard immigrant victims of crime — particularly survivors of sexual assault, trafficking survivors, and domestic violence survivors — by ensuring that they trust police enough to report these crimes to local authorities without being turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

This claim is not a one-off, but, in fact, part of Trump’s long-running campaign to bully local communities to become extensions of the federal deportation system. While the Trump administration claims that its continued harassment of these jurisdictions is driven by public safety concerns, we know that’s just an excuse. In fact, pro-immigrant jurisdictions have lower rates of crime than jurisdictions that actively assist federal immigration agents.

Trump claim: His administration’s new policies providing surplus military equipment to local police departments is just “making sure you have the equipment you need to do the job.”

Trump is referring here to the 1033 program, which came under heavy criticism from the ACLU and others for providing weapons of war — including bayonets, grenade launchers, and armored vehicles — to local police departments. After the nation expressed horror at these weapons of war being turned on protesters at Ferguson, President Obama imposed much-needed controls on the 1033 program, including prohibiting certain military-grade weapons altogether and requiring police departments to account for how armored vehicles and other war gear were being used.

President Trump rescinded all of these rules last year, leaving no controls or limits in place. Trump’s policies are not providing necessary equipment. Instead, they are ensuring that local law enforcement agencies will have a free hand to treat their communities like war zones, with zero oversight or accountability.

Once again President Trump has the facts wrong. And along with his Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Trump is attempting to roll back recent reforms and promote the kind of race-based, unconstitutional police abuse that recently gave rise to the Black Lives Matter movement. Indiscriminate stop and frisk is just one of those practices, and it needs to end across the country, not get an endorsement from the White House.


          Here's Why I Love Iran — Even When My Country Sees It as an Enemy      Cache   Translate Page      
Wondering about American indifference about the war we're ramping up for has had me thinking about why I love Iran.

I was living in Harlem.

It was a few weeks after 9/11 and when Mahsa rang and let me know that she would be in New York, I was happy and excited.

Her brother and I had been friends for over ten years.

We always said our meeting was destined.

As the only two kids of color—I am Black American and he is Persian—in an otherwise all-white Women in Religion class at DePaul University, something in my heart knew he would be my friend for life. I’ll never forget the look of agony in his big blue eyes when after opening the door to that crammed classroom he encountered a sea a white faces looking back at him, no one budging to indicate they would make room as he courageously closed the door behind him, turned and bared the stark gaze of the tall, lanky, pasty professor with the thick Eastern European accent, intensifying the mood with “Why don’t we wait to continue since some of us don’t know how to get to here on time.”

Somehow in that moment, our eyes locked and I hurriedly moved my bag and beckoned him to come sit next to me. Shaun made his way through the sea of kids, barely letting him through the tight aisles. By the time he sat down, sweat trickling from his brow, he was relieved and I was relieved for him and we both laughed under our breath. When he rifled through his bag looking for a pen and couldn’t find one—another long pause from our professor—we both laughed again as I handed him one of mine.

We become one in that moment, representing a warm cocoon of support to protect us through the white supremacist death by a thousand cuts that can choke and kill with its vicious silences and pauses that wither you from the inside out and have no balm but the knowing, empathetic understanding that laughter and friendship can heal.

Even though he was born in Iran, I here in America, we had many things in common. He was organized into his understanding of Whiteness in Wilmette and I got my credentials in Fairfield, Connecticut. Different places, same stuff. Our families were the only people of color in extremely affluent communities and the day to day experiences, that remind you every day of how alien and unlovable you are, would leave their mark on our psyches, well after we’d graduated high school and found one another in that classroom at DePaul University.

Getting together was healing. He and his cousins became fixtures at my house whenever there were barbeques, family get-togethers and parties. When I met Shaun I didn’t know much about Persian history and culture, just what I remembered from what became known as the “hostage crisis,” and the Shah of Iran, years before.

I was eight years old when a group of Iranian college students shut down a building in a place called Tehran. They were holding fifty or so Americans inside the embassy and wouldn’t release them until their demands were met. My mother said the students were standing up for themselves because America was “doing them like they do us” and “they know how it is.” My mom and the Iranian kids seemed to be on the same page because at some point, soon after the “crisis” began, the students released the women and the Black Americans, let them walk right out of the embassy. It made so much sense and I was so impressed with the reasonableness of their actions. “Women hold a special place in our society and Blacks live under American oppression and tyranny.”

Even though the white broadcasters tried to reduce the gesture to a publicity stunt, watching those people march out of the building, the women coming home to their children and the Black Brothers with their afros, coming home to their families, after that the students had my vote. And I got the message, for the first time in my life, that Black people in America had something in common with Black people and other people of color, all over the world.

We were one.

The students knew it. They said it for everyone to hear and now I knew it too.

Hanging out with Shaun reminded me of that. We had good times together and my mom and dad adored him, treated him like he was one of their own. We danced, partied, ate as much barbeque as we could hold, had great cocktails and just enjoyed life together. My parents taught him how to play Bid Whist, Black folk’s version of Bridge. Going to Shaun’s place, either his parents' house out in Wilmette or his apartment down the street from our place in Lincoln Park, was just the same. Just good times. When he cooked, my gosh, the food was magnificent! Well-seasoned meats with fresh, delicious herbs, perfectly cooked fluffy rice with these gorgeous, aromatic dips and sauces. The art on his walls was impeccable and the energy in his apartment was always flowing. Like my family, Shaun was hospitable, caring, a lovely conversationalist and knew how to have a good time, and he cared about people.

We had so many things in common.

So of course, years later when his baby sister Mahsa came to New York, I was excited to host.

She arrived, smartly dressed like a low-key, genius poet in her well-tailored men’s sports jacket, a black turtleneck, jeans and expensive but understated loafers. Mahsa had always been elegant and gorgeous. We walked down to People’s Choice, the most delicious homemade Jamaican food in New York City. I think we got oxtails with peas and rice and cabbage. Neither one of us could get over how extraordinarily delicious the food was. We ate and we talked about her work and mine. We’d all since left Chicago, years ago. Shaun to Los Angeles, me to New York City and Mahsa to Tehran. She’d done a women’s magazine, Bad Jens, and had become a serious organizer of community over there. On this trip she was working at the UN with Shirin Ebadi, doing translation work for her papers, books and speeches. Even though Mahsa was really humble about it, which was her way, I knew from her proud brother that her work with Shirin Ebadi was a really big deal.

Since 9/11 had just gone down, and Bush was pushing us to go to war with Iraq, I took the opportunity to make sense of all that had happened in that part of the world. “Why are we always fighting and complaining about Iraq and Iran?” I asked as we chomped away. “And what’s the deal with Afghanistan?” I admitted to her something that I had hidden from myself, that even though I was pretty active in international situations that impacted Black people and people of color globally, Haiti, South Africa, Venezuela, that I knew very little about the Middle East. It just became something that was always already happening… so ongoing that I just tuned out. Mahsa was one of those people, that even though she was crazy smart, brilliant really, you didn’t have to pretend that you knew something that you did not.

She explained about the oil. She explained about the pipelines. She explained the grip of American imperialism, the destruction of the cities of Middle Eastern antiquity and the pillaging of museums and libraries by American armed forces throughout the years and the slow, steady march to Iraq that the U.S. was directing to Iran. That seemed outlandish to me, that Iran would ever be treated in that fashion. When she started talking about the incessant bombing, the destruction of Beirut came up and I informed her that back in the early '80s, Black folks likened the most cracked-out, left behind areas of our own communities to this city, “South Side of Chicago lookin’ like Beirut,” I’d hear brothers and sisters say.

Mahsa shook her head and smiled slightly and then gave me a glimpse of the history of the beauty and majesty of this gorgeous Lebanese city. She was clearly disturbed by the information, but her gentle, non-judgmental telling of these things, in a tone demonstrative of patience and inner peace, her deep intellect and elegance, amplified a sense of what Americans did not know or like to think about, that ours was a young, foolish country… a big, ignorant, bully baby and that we had lost our way. Completely. Most of us unaware of what was really happening in our names, and for oil, imperialism and what Bush kept calling “our way of life,” around the world, especially in the Middle East, with people, who like my mother’d said all those years ago “know how it is.”

We do not like to even consider what we have destroyed and in that destruction what has been lost, forever, to the world. What we have lost is friendship, culture, love, peace, endless possibilities and all of the wonderful things that come from life when you are trying to crush, kill, and control. Somewhere along the way, in a quest for assimilation, peace and acceptance, and just probably worn downness, Black Americans forgot too, that we have something in common with our brothers and sisters in the Middle East. The greatest blow from the War Economy is that it separates us. Eventually, it separated Shaun and I… understandably. After all, it is difficult to maintain friendships with folks when your country makes habit of lying, stealing, cheating, murdering and spreading hate, making their lives here and back home, a misery.

America was and still is running around, destructively taking… snatching things... from people, with whom Black folks, Native people, LatinX in the land known as the United States have something in common.

As I look at the bombed-out streets of the countries that the United States has attacked, and ripped apart, dusty, dirt heaps where gardens used to grow, I have to look at my own communities, here in the United States. Areas with no green spaces or parks and the prisons swollen with human energy relegated to slavery. Flint, Michigan, with no drinkable water source, Deep East Oakland with nowhere to buy living foods and soil so destroyed by pollution that you can’t grow any… children climbing out of tents in homeless encampments in downtown Oakland, while tech millionaires look down on them from their sprawling condo apartment windows. The United States is waging the same war on the people of the Middle East, that it is waging here on Black folks, LatinX, Indigenous people and poor Whites, here in our local communities.

This truth takes me back to that look on Mahsa’s face when she told me of the beauty of precious Beirut and the pure glory of what stood there before the dust and the rubble.

I have always had the sense that being reminded of what we have in common, (in addition to being targeted by the most destructive force on the planet… the American government…) would create a solidarity that could truly organize peace on its own, between the people most heavily enslaved, marginalized and victimized by the virus of War Economy which spreads by keeping us fearful of one another and separates us. I have always had the sense that if the Black and LatinX children on the South Side of Chicago understood that the bullets flying by and through their heads and the food deserts in which they reside are a construction of the engineers of the War Economy, which inflict death upon all that they cannot control, as they do today to the children of Yemen and Afghanistan, and God forbid, Iran, that they would have a different sense of their possibilities and self-worth in the world. I have always had the sense that if we remembered what the Iranian students were really saying and doing when they released the folks who “suffered under American oppression and tyranny,” just like they did… that we would all be unstoppable… together… because knowing that we all have something in common is the first step towards growing and sustaining a local peace economy.

The good news is that we get a chance to start again, everytime we open our eyes and begin a new day.

When I tell people that our government is ramping up to a war with Iran, a glaze comes over their eyes. It’s like yelling fire in a crowded theater but nobody moves because they’re too busy enjoying their buttered popcorn and watching the movie… so you have to start explaining that fire not only burns… but it can kill you.

Get up and run!

Are we that used to waging war in America that no one even bats an eye?

Or is it because Iran is this faraway place where they’re not like us... and practice a different religion… have different values… a place where the people have nothing in common with us? This glaze over the eyes thing has happened so much that I have to wonder what has happened in my life that makes me understand that loving the Iranian people is as natural as loving my own people... as natural as knowing that they are my people.

Wondering why my fellow countrymen and women do not connect in the same way has shaken me up a little… a lot... and had me thinking about why I love Iran.

I want to dedicate this piece to Mahsa Shekarloo, who left our world on September 5, 2014. May all the girls and women, around the world and especially Iran… Persia, know that she organized, loved and sacrificed so that they could be free. And to her dear brother, Arash, aka Shaun, who is my friend… for life.

          An Archeologist Explains How 'Narcissist' Christopher Columbus Became a National Symbol      Cache   Translate Page      
Christopher Columbus likely would have slipped back into obscurity if not for American hubris.

Christopher Columbus was a narcissist.

He believed he was personally chosen by God for a mission that no one else could achieve. After 1493, he signed his name “xpo ferens” – “the Christbearer.” His stated goal was to accumulate enough wealth to recapture Jerusalem. His arrogance led to his downfall, that of millions of Native Americans – and eventually fostered his resurrection as the most enduring icon of the Americas.

Columbus in chains

In 1496, Columbus was the governor of a colony based at Santo Domingo, in what is now the modern Dominican Republic – a job he hated. He could not convince the other “colonists,” especially those with noble titles, to follow his leadership.

They were not colonists in the traditional sense of the word. They had gone to the Indies to get rich quick. Because Columbus was unable to temper their lust, the Crown viewed him as an incompetent administrator. The colony was largely a social and economic failure. The wealth that Columbus promised the Spanish monarchs failed to materialize, and he made continuous requests for additional financial support, which the monarchs reluctantly provided.

By 1500, conditions in Hispaniola were so dire that the Crown sent Francisco de Bobadilla to investigate. Bobadilla’s first sight, at the mouth of the Ozama River, was four Spanish “mutineers” hanging from gallows. Under authority from the king, Bobadilla arrested Columbus and his brothers for malfeasance and sent them to Spain in chains. Columbus waited seven months for an audience at the court. He refused to have his chains removed until the meeting, and even asked in his will to be buried with the chains.

Although the Spanish rulers wanted Columbus to disappear, he was allowed one final voyage from 1502 to 1504. He died in 1506, and went virtually unmentioned by historians until he was resurrected as a symbol of the United States.

Inventing Columbus

In the mid-18th century, scholars brought to light long-forgotten documents about Columbus and the early history of the New World.

One of the most important was Bartolome de las Casas’ three-volume “Historia de las Indias.” This book was suppressed in Spain because it documented Spain’s harsh treatment of the native peoples. His depiction of Spanish mistreatment of the Indians provided the foundation for the “Black Legend.” His account “blackened” Spanish character by depicting it as repressive, brutal, intolerant and intellectually and artistically backward. Whatever Spain’s motives, the conquest of the Americas destroyed native cultures and ushered in centuries of African enslavement.

Another was the personal journal of Christopher Columbus from his first voyage, published in 1880. The journal captured the attention of Gustavus Fox, Abraham Lincoln’s assistant secretary of the Navy, who made the first attempt to reconstruct the route of Columbus’s first voyage.

Renewed scholarly interest in Columbus coincided with political motives to deny Spain any remaining claims in the Americas. Spain’s American colonies declared independence, one by one, from the beginning of the 19th century. Simón Bolivar, and other Creole revolutionary leaders, embraced a classical philosophy that highlighted their Roman ancestry to a degree that “Spanish America” was converted to Latin America. The final assault came with the U.S. invasion of Cuba and the six-month Spanish-American War in 1898. Puerto Rico became a U.S. territory, and this year marks the 100th anniversary of the purchase of the U.S. Virgin Islands from Denmark.

Columbus likely would have slipped back into obscurity if not for American hubris.

The Columbian Exposition

In 1889, France put on what reviewers described as the most spectacular World’s Fair possible. Held on the Champs de Mars in Paris, its crowning achievement was the Eiffel Tower.

After Paris, the United States set out to prove to the world it was the equal of Europe by staging its own World’s Fair. No one has claimed credit for the theme of the Exposition, but the stage was set when American writer and author of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” Washington Irving, attempted to revive his flagging career by writing the first biography of Christopher Columbus in English, published in 1828.

His embellishments created the great hero whose legend the fair celebrated: “He was one of those men of strong natural genius, who appear to form themselves; who, from having to contend at their very outset with privations and impediments, acquire an intrepidity in braving and a facility in vanquishing difficulties.”

The Columbian Exposition and World’s Fair was timed to coincide with the 400th anniversary of Columbus’s arrival in the New World. President Benjamin Harrison presided over opening ceremonies on Oct. 12, 1892. That same day, the Pledge of Allegiance was introduced in American schools.

Chicago created the “White City” – a collection of nine “palaces” designed by America’s greatest architects, conceived and constructed in only 26 months. Outside the White City was the grittier Midway, which is now a common feature of carnivals and fairs. The fair gave visitors their first taste of carbonated soda, Cracker Jacks and Juicy Fruit chewing gum. An enormous 264-foot-tall Ferris wheel transported 36 cars each carrying up to 60 people on a 20-minute ride. More than 28 million tickets were sold during the six months the Columbian Exposition was open. Columbus was the darling of 19th-century mass media.

Seventy-one portraits of Columbus, all posthumous, hung in a Grand Gallery. Following Irving’s descriptions, Columbus became the embodiment of the American Dream. The son of simple wool weavers and someone who had a great dream challenged the greatest scholars of his day, and boldly went where no man had gone before. Better yet, he was Italian. America could deny that Spain had any part in the discovery of the New World.

President Harrison declared a national holiday to coincide with opening of the Columbian Exposition – Columbus Day. It was officially recognized by Congress in 1937.

In 1992, as the United States prepared for the 500th anniversary of Columbus’s arrival in the Americas, the pendulum swung again. The devastating impact of his “discovery” on native peoples throughout the Americas led protesters to decry Columbus as a “terrorist.”

Columbus the man died more than 500 years ago. Columbus the legend is still being dismantled. His story illustrates the blurred borders between myth and history – how an architect of destruction was turned into a national symbol.

This is an updated version of an article originally published on Oct. 10, 2016.

This article has been updated to correct the name of the president who presided over the Columbian Exposition’s opening ceremonies.

Lana Gailani is a Renaissance woman of the 2010s.

Current IssuePrint IssueWomenLesbianEver Had a Fortune Cookie Mai TaiBoris Abrams

Lana Gailani’s story does not immediately allude to a life spent mixing spirits. A scholar at heart, Gailani once pursued a Ph.D. in political science and is well-versed in post-conflict state-building in the Middle East. However, the complexity of mixology allows her to nurture the scholar within.

A self-identifying introvert, she shies away from the constant spotlight under which many bartenders operate. “It is very easy to lose yourself in hospitality,” Gailani warns. After all, bartending is not merely about the creation of drinks. It’s about pleasing customers through constant interaction. Gailani has developed novel coping methods, leaving her graciously elevated off the ground.

She faces internal battles that threaten to interfere with her craft. A struggle with depression led her to discover the art that now keeps her stable — while dangling from silks hanging from a ceiling. Gailani is an aerialist, who secretly harbors dreams of running away with the circus. While mixology keeps her rooted, her acrobatic silk work has helped keep her depression in check.

Today, Gailani is the bar manager of Kiss + Ride and Big Trouble, two brand-new establishments located within Denver’s Zeppelin Station (ZeppelinStation.com). Her journey into mixology has been anything but straightforward. Born in Chicago, she spent the first few decades of her life east of Los Angeles. In 2008, Gailani broke free of a political science graduate program in Seattle to enroll in pastry school. “I needed to get out,” she recalls. After briefly working in Seattle’s fine dining scene, she moved to New York City, the nation’s culinary center “where it was all happening.” The move was not smooth sailing.

The grueling hours, low-wages, and high cost of living quickly fatigued the 28-year-old Gailani. She started waiting tables, unconsciously setting herself up for a career in the front-of-house.

Working at Empellon Cocina, Alex Stupak’s now defunct Mexican restaurant in the East Village, Gailani clamored for experience behind the bar. “I was like ‘I worked in pastry, I know how to make things on demand, I have a background in mescal and my palate is good,’” she says. Her efforts proved successful. A career in mixology was about to begin.

The spirit selection at Empellon was tightly focused (one vodka, one tequila), encouraging the new mixologist to stretch her imagination. She had to recreate flavor profiles to mimic cocktails traditionally made with unavailable spirits. Equally, she needed to produce concoctions that would please a number of palates, while operating with a limited arsenal. By the time she started working elsewhere, access to a wide variety of spirits practically overwhelmed her.

Once entrenched in the cocktail scene, Gailani began slinging drinks at two of Manhattan’s hottest bars: Seamstress (now closed) and Pouring Ribbings. But New York City changes at shocking speeds, and drinking establishments often collapse like dominos. Tragically, these were venues that Gailani says “had done everything right [but] could just not make it.” With bar owners worried about the bottom line, mixologists couldn’t take risks in the name of creativity.

Two years later, she made the decision to relocate to Colorado, where she says the work-driven culture that dominated N.Y.C. is conspicuously absent. The culinary scene is exploding — and with the lower rents, she says, Denver allows for creativity.

At Big Trouble, one of the two bars Gailani now manages, she’s crafted a cocktail program that reflects an East meets West theme. It’s about viewing the familiar through a foreign lens. It’s approachable, with the main tenants of the cocktails rooted in tradition, yet mixed with just enough novelty to spur excitement and curiosity.

          Anonymous UW Students Publish Rape Accusations Online. What Could Go Wrong?      Cache   Translate Page      
For those who are falsely accused, the consequences can be deadly serious. by Katie Herzog

At the end of September, a group of anonymous University of Washington students launched a new website. Called, “Make Them Scared,” the website solicits and publishes the names of men, both in and outside of the school, who have been accused of rape, sexual assault, harassment, and abuse. It’s the Shitty Media Men list, UW edition.

The Shitty Media Men list was a collection of anonymous allegations against men working in media that circulated online in the wake of #MeToo. Like Make Them Scared, it was created anonymously, although the originator eventually came out. Allegations on the list, which was hosted on a Google Doc that anyone with access could edit, ranged from flirting and “weird dates” to physical abuse and rape.

When Make Them Scared first launched in September, anyone could submit a claim anonymously and the alleged abuser would be automatically added. Shortly after, the unknown creators of the list decided that anonymous accusations would no longer be accepted. Now, the creators know the accusers’ identities—which they verify through the accuser’s Facebook account—but their identities are not made public. And, like the Shitty Media Men list—which advised readers to take allegations "with a grain of salt"—the UW list comes with that caveat as well: "We do not have the ability to absolutely determine whether any accused party is guilty of the accused acts,” the site reads, "so take all names listed with a grain of salt."

This project is not supported by everyone on campus. On Monday, the editorial board of The UW Daily, the student newspaper that first broke this story, outlined their concerns in an editorial: "The editorial board cannot justify the actions of the list’s creators," the board wrote. "It completely circumvents due process and trivializes the seriousness with which accusations ought to be received. It ends up lending more credit to the argument that even truthful accusations should be viewed with suspicion and as part of a vengeful agenda, not one that seeks justice."

The creators of the list, however, believe they are beginning a movement, and hope that other campuses will follow suit. “We want to give victims a sense of justice and rest that other avenues deny them,” the creators told the Daily in an email. “Although catharsis for victims is part of it, we aren’t publishing the names for the sake of that alone. We also want the list to serve as a deterrent for future perpetrators, and as a resource for potential victims to consult for their own safety.”

Of course, a site like this could go very, very wrong. The number of false rape allegations that are never reported to police is unknown, but most studies put the percentage of false rape allegations that are reported and investigated to between 2 and 10 percent. It’s rare. But for those who are falsely accused, the consequences can be deadly serious.

Stephen Elliott is one of about 70 men included on the Shitty Media Men list last year, and he isn't shy about his problems. Elliott has written about his issues with drugs, with sex, with family, and with homelessness over and over again, including in his 2009 memoir The Adderall Diaries, which was turned into a movie staring James Franco. A profile of him in the Chicago Tribune called him, "intriguingly damaged, sweetly introspective and with enough personal baggage to inform four semiautobiographical novels—so far." What Elliott is not, he insists, is a rapist, and finding out he'd be anonymously accused of rape (along with "sexual harassment, coercion, unsolicited invitations to his apartment, and sneaking into the Binders," a women's only Facebook group) came as a shock. In an essay published by Quillette, he explained why: "I don’t like intercourse," he wrote. "I don’t like penetrating people with objects, and I don’t like receiving oral sex. My entire sexuality is wrapped up in BDSM. Crossdressing, bondage, masochism. I’m always the bottom."

In interviews with The Stranger, Elliott said that his behavior both in and outside the bedroom can be both atypical and unprofessional (he does not, however, know how he ended up in the Binders Facebook group.) A longtime friend of his told me that Elliot (who, as a child, was a ward of the state and lived in group homes) was "raised by wolves" and has "zero boundaries.” He’s the kind of guy who will talk about sex in front of your grandma. It's easy to see how his behavior could be construed as—or could be—sexual harassment.

Still, Elliott says he’s never come even close to raping someone. Not only is sexual violence not in his character, penetrative sex just isn’t a part of his sex life. Of course, rape can take many forms and is not always penetrative, but, according to Elliott, “I don’t think there is a person in the world who honestly believes that I raped them. I just didn't do it.”

Elliott has no idea what or who put him on the Shitty Media Men list, but soon after it came out, a number of his friends, along with his Hollywood agent, stopped returning his calls. He was unable to find work in LA, where he had moved in the hopes of breaking into TV writing. Were the calls not coming because of the list, or was it some other reason? Elliott doesn't know, but the accusation took a major toll on his life. He relapsed on drugs and was deeply suicidal. Instead of killing himself, however, Elliott got sober, started going to meetings, and contacted former lovers and friends, asking if he’d ever raped them, even without his knowledge. He wanted to apologize and hold himself accountable if he had. No allegations, however, came forth.

Elliott also started writing about it. Getting an essay about being anonymously accused of rape published, however, wasn’t easy. “New York Magazine agreed to run it,” he wrote in the essay that was eventually published by Quillette. “I worked with the editor for a few weeks and then, just as I believed it was about to be published, they informed me that it wouldn’t run after all. It was then accepted by two senior editors at the Guardian, but the essay was spiked again, apparently after other editors revolted. I’ve never had an essay accepted somewhere and then rejected. Now it’s happened twice.”

According to emails provided by Elliott, just three hours after an editor at the Guardian accepted his piece, he reneged on his offer. “As you can appreciate with a piece of this nature, various discussions have to be had with a number of editors and a collective view taken,” the editor wrote to Elliott. “The balance of that view has changed which is the reason I’m writing you now.” He advised Elliott to “save [himself] the agony” of further rejection and self-publish his piece on Medium.

In the year since the Shitty Media Men list became public, no further allegations of sexual abuse against Elliott have emerged. After his essay came out, however, two writers came forward with other accusations of wrongdoing. Marisa Siegel, the current owner of the Rumpus, the literary website Elliott founded, published an essay about how he once barged into her hotel room at a conference. The experience, she wrote, left her “shaken.”

Elliott admits he did this, but, he said, it wasn't some sort of "sinister plot." He says he needed to talk to Siegel and, yes, went about it in a wildly unprofessional manner. Elliott's long-term friend told me that he could easily see Elliott doing this. "He'll eat the food out of your fridge," Elliott’s friend said. "He just doesn't have any boundaries."

This lack of boundaries has come up before. In 2015, award-winning novelist Claire Vaye Watkins wrote an essay in Tin House about her own uncomfortable encounter with Elliott while in graduate school. She says that Elliott, who was visiting the school and whom she’d offered to put up for the night, repeatedly asked to sleep in her bed. Elliott admits this is true, but, he says, he wasn’t trying to hook up; it just seemed more comfortable than the air mattress on the floor. That, however, wasn't apparent to Watkins, and it's not hard to see why she, or anyone, would have been uncomfortable with this request. “It wasn’t cool to ask to get in her bed,” Elliott told me. “Now I see that.”

After Elliott’s essay came out, a former Rumpus employee, Lyz Lenz, made several accusations against him on Twitter. Lenz did not work at the Rumpus when she encountered Elliott but was volunteering for the website at a conference, where, she says, Elliott asked her back to his hotel room to watch a movie and, on the same occasion, pulled cash out of her back pocket. She also said that he “demanded” she work on his book project for free.

Elliott told me that he doesn’t remember pulling cash out of Lenz’s pocket but if she said he did, he believes that it happened. He also said that the movie he asked her to watch was one he was in the process of editing and that he asked lots of people, male and female, to watch it with him. (This was confirmed by Elliott’s friend.) As for demanding unpaid labor, that is not, according to emails provided by Elliott, strictly true. While Elliott did ask Lenz if she wanted to work on his book project, he also offered to pay. (When I asked Lenz for these emails, she initially agreed to provide them, then, soon after, changed her mind and said she wouldn’t be commenting any further.)

Whisper networks about abusers have likely existed as long as women have been abused. And for good reason: For much of human history, sexual assault and rape weren’t considered criminal offenses. In parts of the world, it’s still perfectly legal for men to rape their wives, and in the U.S., rape often goes unpunished. It's an unfortunate truth that women sometimes need protection from men, and whisper networks can help provide it when the justice system fails them.

Today, however, these rumors aren’t just whispered, they are posted online, often—as in both Elliott and UW’s case—with no investigation or statement from the accused. This, as The Daily editorial board pointed out, is a problem, and not just because it has the potential to ruin the lives of innocent humans. It also gives ammunition to those who would like to discredit movements like #MeToo. “The catharsis of reporting an assaulter's name and filling out a quick online form that might bring public shaming to those who’ve caused you pain is easy to imagine,” the editors wrote. “It’s simple, but unfortunately, that’s the problem. Accusing someone of a sex crime should not be totally effortless, because then the allegation loses its power.”

The creators of Make Them Scared didn't respond to a request for comment. On the website’s FAQ page, however, they acknowledge the potential downsides of a project like this. “Most people already know the statistics about false reports,” the website reads. “Basically, they’re very, very rare. In an anonymous system? Probably markedly less rare. In any system where an accuser has to attach their name to the accusation? We’re back to very rare. And our accusers have attached their names to their accusations for us to see. In exchange for their trust, we're here to take all the backlash they'd encounter if they went public with their names.”

Of course, they don’t investigate the claims, just publish them. And by running the website anonymously, the creators won’t personally feel any of the backlash. Whoever is running the site is just as nameless as the accusers themselves.

When reached for comment, SARVA, the UW organization that helps victims of sexual assault, said they haven't taken an official position on the list. The University, however, has. "The contents of the website are very concerning," said Victor Balta, UW spokesperson, said in a statement: "We do not know who is behind the site, and it is in no way affiliated with the UW. The UW is committed to our work toward preventing sexual violence and sexual harassment, maintaining support and protections for anyone who experiences such violence, properly investigating and addressing allegations, and upholding due process.” He urges anyone who has experienced rape or sexual assault to go directly to the University police as opposed to the internet.

As for Stephen Elliott, he might not be a rapist, but he has clearly made women uncomfortable in the past. During our conversations, he seemed mystified that anyone he worked with at the Rumpus or elsewhere would have looked at him as an authority figure—which, regardless of his awareness of it, he was. This power dynamic was invisible to Elliott, and his failure to see it didn’t just hurt some of the women around him, in the end, it hurt him as well. Still, there's a wide gap between causing someone discomfort and committing rape.

Today, Elliott is living in a new city, doing manual labor, and thinking back over his interactions with women, trying for figure out where, exactly he went wrong. He doesn’t blame anyone for his situation but himself. He said this, more than once, when we talked. He does, however, hope that Make Them Scared’s creators are fully aware of the consequences of publishing the names of the accused without thoroughly investigating the claims first. “Know that you’re possibly ruining someone’s life,” he said. “And then if you still want to do it, at least you’re doing it with the full knowledge that it’s forever.”

The Control Freaks - Double Dose of Hate.

Background - Wait, The Control Freaks are putting out another single? How about that: I am the bearer of good news! Their last single, "I Am Crime", just came out last month. Next up is Double Dose of Hate, due out November 2. This single literally IS a double dose of hate, as both tracks are odes to...you guessed it...hate!

Who can't get behind that?! Sherrilynn Nelson (formerly keyboardist for The Omens) loved The Control Freaks so much that she learned guitar just so she could join the band. "Time's Up" from the last single was her CF songwriting debut.  Double Dose of Hate opens with another song she penned called "I Hate Your Face". That's a damn fine title, and sure enough, the song lives up to it! I can never get enough of this sort of old-style catchy punk rock, and I really dig the back-and-forth exchange between Nelson and Greg Ripoff.

When it comes to garage punk in the year 2018, The Control Freaks are showing everyone how it's done. Double Dose of Hate is their fourth single - and in my opinion their best yet. I say this because of the impossible time I'm having trying to determine which of these two tracks is "the hit". One song can be played at max volume while you curse the name of significant others past and present. The other will feed your abhorrence for just about everyone else. Arguments over which track is superior could very well lead to drunken fist fights and ruined friendships. Do we really want that? So let's just call it a tie and agree that a double dose of hate is exactly what this world needs. FACEBOOK.


In 1967 we had the summer of love, fast track a decade and in 1977 we had the summer of hate thanks to the growing dissolution with anything that, well Er, needed to be hated. 'Double Dose of Hate' has plenty of the original punk vibes, reminding me in part of Scotland's deliciously punk The Rezillos, it's catchy, energised and as a contradiction - fun.

Fauvely - Savannah.

Background - Fauvely is the project of Chicago-based singer-guitarist Sophie Brochu, who creates deeply personal dream-pop music. After completing her master’s in fiction writing and feeling frustrated with the constraints of her craft, Sophie turned to music for its raw and immediate release. 

The title of her debut EP, Watch Me Over complicate This (Midwest Action, 2017), speaks to the confessional tone of songs that range from delicately self-effacing to hauntingly sad.

Fauvely’s forthcoming LP, Tides, transports listeners to the salty coast of Sophie’s hometown, Savannah, GA. Louder and bolder than her EP, these intensely brooding songs are the result of a new confidence possessed by Sophie, and the desire to come to terms with haunting memories in a place revered for its beauty. 


Fauvely has cultivated a strong presence in Chicago, sharing the stage with internationally acclaimed artists Stella Donnelly, Gemma Ray, Ryley Walker, and Ultimate Painting. WEBSITE.

Live - October 11 -  Schubas ( supporting Laura Veirs) Chicago, IL.


'Savannah' quietly opens with soothing vocals and a gentle musical backdrop. The layers gradually build, bringing more melodic hooks and a lush landscape of rich and pleasing dream pop.

Jason Ewald - Looking Everywhere.

Background - A retro-modern reflection on the isolation and adversities of city life, Jason Ewald’s new single “Looking Everywhere” is a soulful homage to the pop songwriting of the ’60s and ’70s. 

The song’s rich arrangement belies its humble beginning, conceived on a friend’s upright piano at her Brooklyn apartment. It started as two-chord vamp, a simple bass line, and Ewald improvising whatever lyrics came to mind. After sitting idle for two years, the idea was rescued from a digital recorder, and construction began in earnest. Throughout the writing process, the song stayed true to the sounds he and the band grew up with and love. Horn arrangements and rich harmonies provide a canvas for a soulful, reflective—and palpably melancholy vocal performance.

Ewald recalled, “It wasn’t until after recording it that I realized how lonely I was at the time. It seemed my subconscious was at work right under my nose. Such is existing in New York. What you love about it—what fulfills and nourishes you—is exactly what grinds you down and tests your resolve. Living in a city of millions, yet alone. Navigating periods of doubt, but always emerging victorious.”

          Kylie Jenner Was This Close to Naming Baby Stormi Something Completely Different      Cache   Translate Page      

Kylie Jenner was so close to naming Stormi Webster... Stormie.

So, basically, it would've been the same but one letter makes all the difference. Kylie explains to Youtuber and makeup artist James Charles, "It was always Stormie with an -ie," she explains. "I didn't fully choose her name, I wanted to have a week of just me and her to see if I wanted to change it, cause I had one other name in mind, but Stormi always felt like her name from when she was in the womb."

She adds, "It's almost like she chose her name."

Kylie only settled on Stormi's current spelling when she confirmed the name for the birth certificate. "Literally right then and there I just changed it to an -i and I hung up the phone and was like, 'Damn, I guess that's her name'," she laughs.

She also liked the name Willow, but she feels like she is too close to Willow Smith to name her daughter that. 

Stormi Webster's Cutest Baby Pics

In the end, Stormi's name perfectly suits the eight-month-old's personality. According to her mama, "She reminds me a lot of Kendall... it's so funny."

As for the future, Kylie can't wait to have more kids, but only girls. She jokes, "Sisters only, like I want seven girls and then maybe I'll consider a boy."

Kylie is in no rush to have another baby though and as much as she would like Stormi to have a little sister, she feels like her play dates with Chicago and True are keeping her socialized. "They have play dates all day," Kylie shares. "Stormi and Chicago were taking a bath together last night at my house. They really are triplets."

Too cute!

          Moody Bible Picks Multisite Pastor as Its New President      Cache   Translate Page      

Mark Jobe of Chicago’s New Life Community Church will take over a year after Bible college’s leadership shake-up.

Moody Bible Institute has named Mark Jobe, lead pastor of a multisite Chicago megachurch, as its next president.

Today’s announcement comes several months after the historic school’s top leaders resigned amid concerns over its financial and theological direction.

Jobe, the founding pastor of New Life Community Church, will serve as Moody’s tenth president.

His tenure begins in January, a year after Moody’s previous president J. Paul Nyquist and chief operating officer Steve Mogck resigned as the school’s board declared it was “time for a new season of leadership” following layoffs and mounting tensions between the faculty and administration.

“We have had a vision for Chicago and beyond and seen God do some amazing things … and we continue with that passion and that vision. Recently, God has opened up a great door of opportunity,” Jobe, who holds a diploma and master’s degree from Moody, said in a video announcement to the New Life community.

Under his leadership, the church has expanded to 27 locations with about 7,000 attendees. Jobe said he plans to continue to serve as pastor and preacher after assuming the new position at Moody.

The Chicago pastor and ministry leader succeeds interim president Greg Thornton, a former Moody vice president. Jobe has continued to work with his alma mater over the years, writing a book through Moody Publishers (Unstuck: Out of Your Cave into Your Call) and hosting a show on Moody Radio Chicago (Straight Talk).

“With the appointment of Mark, the search committee and board of trustees firmly believe the Lord answered our prayers and those of everyone who have faithfully stood with us these last six months,” said Randy ...

          Brett Kavanaugh’s First Day on the Bench Was Disturbingly Normal      Cache   Translate Page      

On Monday night, Donald Trump led the entire U.S. Supreme Court into an ambush. At a ceremonial swearing-in for Trump’s latest appointee, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the president launched into a political diatribe that made a majority of the court visibly uncomfortable. “On behalf of our nation,” Trump declared, “I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure.” He decried the “campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception,” and asserted that Kavanaugh had been “proven innocent” of sexual assault allegations. Then he praised Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Sen. Susan Collins, the latter of whom he credited for supporting Kavanaugh in a “brave and eloquent speech.”

Fifteen hours after this GOP pep rally, the justices assembled at the Supreme Court to hear arguments in two criminal sentencing cases, marking the first time Kavanaugh took his new seat on the bench. If Chief Justice John Roberts hadn’t formally welcomed his new colleague—“We wish you a long and happy career in our common calling”—it would’ve been tough to tell that anything had changed. The justices settled into their groove, and Kavanaugh jumped into the action, seemingly right at home. While the rest of the country continues to convulse over his confirmation, the justices seem determined to move past Monday’s partisan spectacle and go about their business as usual.

This projection of continuity—of legitimacy, really—stood in remarkable contrast to the bizarre White House event the entire court had been forced to endure. Before waxing lyrical about his Republican allies, Trump thanked each member of the court individually for attending the ceremony. The justices, unsure how to respond to this scripted demonstration of gratitude, took turns awkwardly acknowledging the president. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg looked up, then away from Trump. Justice Stephen Breyer flashed a nervous grin. Justice Samuel Alito appeared to be in physical pain.

After that, the justices mostly clasped their hands together and stared at the ground. They looked uneasy before Trump started commending the (Republican) lawmakers who’d helped elevate Kavanaugh to the bench. Once those blandishments began, the justices either held their applause or clapped with polite restraint, like a parent applauding someone else’s kid at a recital. Only Justice Clarence Thomas, a friend of the Trump administration, heartily applauded each politician, clapping with special vigor for Mitch McConnell.

It’s safe to assume that none of the justices expected to be used as props at a small-scale Trump rally. (“Joining us for tonight’s ceremony is every sitting Supreme Court justice!” Trump announced before the painful thank-a-thon.) Justice Neil Gorsuch’s 2017 White House ceremony was, by comparison, a muted affair; back then, Trump refrained from attacking Democrats or exalting in the glory of every Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee. But Kavanaugh’s confirmation was much harder fought than Gorsuch’s and hit closer to home for Trump. The accusations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh clearly rankled the president on a personal level. And he couldn’t resist reminding Democrats that their “lies and deception” had failed to foil his second Supreme Court pick.

The justices looked much more comfortable as they filed onto the bench Tuesday morning. Before arguments began, Kavanaugh chatted amiably with his new seatmate, Justice Elena Kagan; the two whispered and laughed like old friends. When Kavanaugh asked his questions, he appeared determined to prove he was prepared, even citing the exact page of a precedent to prove a point. But he was also respectful to his colleagues and courteous with attorneys—a stark contrast with Gorsuch’s notorious early days on the bench, when he subtweeted Alito and talked over everyone.

Tuesday’s cases are not blockbusters, but they will provide a glimpse into what kind of conservative Kavanaugh will be: a law-and-order stickler (like Alito) or a libertarian formalist (like Gorsuch). Both involve the Armed Career Criminal Act, a draconian federal law that jacks up sentences for repeat offenders. ACCA is plagued by maddeningly hazy language, and the court has already lopped off a key provision, ruling that it violated due process. The latest cases require the court to determine how much “physical force” a defendant must employ during the commission of his crime to qualify for ACCA’s sentence enhancement and whether burglary of a vehicle triggers its penalties.

ACCA’s only consistent defender on the Supreme Court is Alito, who did not attempt to conceal his frustration with the court’s gradual demolition of the law. “You’re not exactly on a winning streak here in ACCA cases,” Alito told Erica Ross, a government attorney. “You might have gotten a hint that a majority of the court really hates ACCA and is picking it apart bit by bit by bit.” He added: “In my humble opinion, in this area, we have made one royal mess. Maybe we ought to go back and correct our own mess.”

Alito must have been pleased, then, when Kavanaugh asked a series of questions that evinced skepticism toward criminal defense attorneys’ efforts to narrow ACCA’s scope. Kavanaugh is not a tactical questioner; he doesn’t try to shatter an argument he disagrees with and bolster one he likes. But he was notably deferential to the Justice Department lawyers who are trying to prop up ACCA—another stark comparison with Gorsuch, who peppered the DOJ attorneys with sharp inquiries.

Although everybody leaned forward in anticipation the first few times Kavanaugh spoke up, he seemed like an old hand. The other justices slipped into their routines, too. Ginsburg quibbled with Alito. Breyer asked a quixotic, multipart question that was really more of a cry for help. Justice Sonia Sotomayor leaned over and pinched Gorsuch to illustrate a hypothetical, and Gorsuch made a funny face. Thomas leaned back and closed his eyes for several minutes.

The court, in short, tried very hard to ignore the months of political warfare and emotional agony that preceded Kavanaugh’s admission to its private club. Democrats hoping for the liberal bloc to disregard or ostracize the newest justice will be sorely disappointed. These justices recognize that Kavanaugh throws the court’s legitimacy in peril, and are eager to shore up its institutional prestige. That requires playing nice with Kavanaugh. These justices could have declined their invite to the White House on Monday night or given their new colleague the cold shoulder on Tuesday morning. They did not. Instead, they embraced him as one of their own.

Progressives may find Kavanaugh’s warm reception at the court objectionable, even repulsive. They may believe that, by treating him with such respect, the liberal justices are legitimizing him, helping him to cast off the cloud of doubt that followed him to the bench. But these justices do not want to lose any hope of grabbing his vote in a closely divided case—and they all place the court’s eminence above their own proclivities. A large portion of the country may still condemn him. But within the Supreme Court, there will be no resistance to Justice Kavanaugh.


          Sexual Harassment Claims Spiked After the Clarence Thomas Hearings. They’re Spiking Again Now.      Cache   Translate Page      

Since the #MeToo movement kicked off last fall, the number of sexual harassment charges filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has spiked. In fiscal year 2018, which closed just days before the first anniversary of the publication of the Harvey Weinstein stories that kicked off a national reckoning with harassment and assault, the EEOC saw a more than 12 percent bump in charges filed with the agency as compared to the previous year.

While this year’s numbers aren’t finalized yet, Cathy Ventrell-Monsees, a senior attorney adviser to the chair of the EEOC, says the proportional increase is unlikely to change as the agency certifies its data. The agency received 6,696 charges of sexual harassment in the 2017 fiscal year, which means there were about 7,500 in 2018—the first increase the EEOC has seen in at least eight years. Sexual harassment charges had been steadily declining since 2010, when 7,944 claims were filed, and the number hasn’t topped 7,300 since 2012.

According to Ventrell-Monsees, sexual harassment charges increase and decrease in response to major national events and dips in the economy. And since charges are frequently filed in response to layoffs and firings that may be undertaken in retaliation for raising complaints of harassment, a bad economy usually means more charges, too.

Early reports, then, suggest that #MeToo appears to be one of those events that prompts a spike in sexual harassment claims. Anita Hill’s testimony during Clarence Thomas’ 1991 Supreme Court confirmation hearings was another. In the first quarter of the 1992 fiscal year, after Hill appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee to accuse Thomas of harassing her when they worked together at—as fate would have it—the EEOC, the agency received 1,244 claims of sexual harassment, a 71 percent increase over the same period in the previous year. The spike held for the next three quarters, which saw 50 percent more sexual harassment charges than in 1991. “There has been a growing public awareness of the right to file charges of sexual harassment, and women are coming forward,” an EEOC spokeswoman said at the time.

Back then, Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch, who helped push Brett Kavanaugh through the Judiciary Committee and recently told a group of women protesting sexual assault to “grow up,” applauded women for coming forward with sexual harassment complaints after the Hill/Thomas hearing. “The one good thing to come out of the hearing is that everybody—and I mean everybody—is more aware,” he told the New York Times in July 1992. “Women are fed up to the gills about how they’re treated in this society. A lot of men thought it was cute, but it isn’t. Sensitivity has been heightened like never before. And that is a very healthy thing for our country.”

The increase in sexual harassment complaints that followed the Hill hearing marked the beginning of a steady rise that continued for the next five years. The combined number of charges filed with both the federal EEOC and state and local Fair Employment Practices Agencies climbed from 10,532 in fiscal 1992 to 16,245 in 1997, then began a relatively steady decline to 9,614 charges in 2017. There’s no way to tell whether the post-#MeToo spike in charges filed will be a quick uptick or the beginning of another long-term surge in complaints, but EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum said last week that she believes the intensified national conversation about sexual harassment and assault denotes “a transformative moment” in the country’s history.

In 2016, the EEOC launched a new training in response to a report that showed harassment to be a persistent, pervasive problem in American workplaces. In addition to educating employers on sexual harassment law and compliance, the new curriculum teaches employers how to stop harassment before it creates a toxic work environment. Since the #MeToo movement began last fall, Ventrell-Monsees says, demand for the training has been “off the charts,” with trainers booked three to six months out. With the $15 million bump Congress gave the agency’s budget in March, the EEOC has been able to hire more employees to meet the post-#MeToo demand.

There’s no good way to track whether the increases in charges filed with the EEOC after the Hill hearing or after #MeToo have led to more favorable outcomes for the employees who file them. Often, even when the EEOC finds an employee’s charges have merit, the employee or her lawyer decides to withdraw the complaint in order to settle privately with the employer. But regardless of whether the new claims end up dismissed, settled, or adjudicated in court, Ventrell-Monsees believes they represent a major shift in the way American workplaces—and the people who populate them—respond to inappropriate behavior. “The EEOC has been all over harassment for many years,” she said. “The rest of the nation kind of woke up to it in October of last year.”

          Comment on ASK FATHER: I struggle with despair at the future of the Church. by Benedictus      Cache   Translate Page      
I've been challenged by similar thoughts. It really sickens me about what I've read! If cardinals, bishops and other clergy are flouting their homosexuality, how does a poor sinner (like me) try to be holy. I am a husband, and father of six kids. I hate to rehash the ugly details, but McCarrick would look at seminarians (while attending to one), and say "you're next." The teenager that "credibly" accused McCarrick indicated he was violated while preparing for Christmas Eve Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral in the 1970s. Right after that, McCarick consecrated the Holy Eucharist! This is terrible. When you hear about all these clergy violating the 6th Commandment with impunity (and seemingly no remorse), how does it make me (a weak sinner) feel when I fall into temptation? Look at the two Chicago priests caught in the act in Miami. I will never leave Jesus' Church, but I am getting repulsed. I understand that their is righteous anger, but believe that my anger/disgust has passed that. It angers me to hear that traditionalists are punished (for conforming to Church teachings, or for preaching the hard truths) than homosexuals. I attended a NO mass this weekend (like I normally do), but not at my regular Church. I really despise the parade of "Eucharistic ministers," the blessing of the Boy Scouts at the Altar, the "stand up" and greet everyone before Mass starts. Sometimes I feel like I sin by just attending Mass and being annoyed by the shenanigans. Lord have mercy!

          Avengers: Infinity War      Cache   Translate Page      

- Captain America

This week's movie rental was Avengers: Infinity War ...

a 2018 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team the Avengers .... [which] features an ensemble cast including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Josh Brolin, and Chris Pratt.

The movie is the culmination of what's been building through all of the Marvel movie storylines up to this point, and it includes characters beyond just the Avengers, like Doctor Strange and the Guardians of the Galaxy. The bad guy, an alien named Thanos, was introduced in the first Avengers film, and in this movie he wreaks havoc trying to acquire all the powerful infinity stones in order to use them to destroy half of all life in the universe.

Here's a trailer ...



After the last movie about the Avengers - Captain America: Civil War - the Avengers are in disarray, most of them on the lam from the law, so when they learn that Thanos is after the infinity stones, their response is splintered. Iron Man (Tony Stark) joins with Doctor Strange and Spider-Man to protect the stone Dr. Strange possesses. Here we see Doctor Strange, Tony Stark, and Bruce Banner (who's having trouble becoming the Hulk) confronting Thanos' minions who have come for Strange's infinity stone ...



Meanwhile, Captain America, the Black Widow, the Scarlet Witch, and the Vision travel to Wakanda, the home of the Black Panther, to guard the stone possessed by the Vision ...



And Thor, recently having watched Thanos kill his brother Loki, joins with Rocket of the Guardians of the Galaxy to try to destroy Thanos before he can collect all the stones. Here's a clip of Thor telling Rocket of all the personal losses he's endured ...



Though there are funny scenes, of course, the basic tenor of the film is grim, and though I don't mean to be a spoiler, the movie ended in a way I didn't expect - the Avengers were defeated.

I grew up reading Avengers comics and I love the Avengers films and the characters in them, especially Captain America. I definitely recommend the movie.

          BEKs at Youth Correctional Facility      Cache   Translate Page      

MacLaren Youth Correctional is located in Woodburn, Oregon:

“Yeah, I just got out of McLaren. I don't know if you know the history of McLaren. It's a youth correctional facility for the Oregon Youth Authority. There's some...I'm not able to say names just because where it is but there was some kids that just had black eyes. They were really creepy to be around, quiet. It was eerie just because how they would act.

They're dark, they're cold. A lot of them, I don't want to say that they were Wicca but you could tell they performed something Satanic or not normal. (Clyde Lewis asks how did he know about this) There were some words, some stuff being spread around, you know how hearsay is. There's a lot of drama over there. They would act like, they would act totally different. They'd spend a lot of time to themselves and not talk to anybody. They wouldn't be near anybody. They'd go to church and just stare off into space or they'd just be out there. (Lewis asks if the eyes were completely black, no whites) Yeah, well, like sometimes. Like we'd be at the school. I worked at...there's a metal shop out there and you'd be working and a kid would have a torch or something and he'd be just, he'd be watching a flame and his eyes would just go black. It was scary. You just didn't know what to expect. You know, like, Oh my god, is he gonna kill me or am I gonna be okay? (Lewis asks if it was drug related) No, no, no! They are pretty strict over there on drugs so I really don't think it would be drug related. I would think it would be possession of some sort. That would be my thing, I think that there are a lot of kids that would go in there that were possessed by something.”

But fans also travel, in some cases long distances, to stock up on the traditional breads, cookies, biscoti, cannoli, and other treats Madonia continues to produce. Peter Madonia The bakery’s founder, Mario Madonia, immigrated from Sicily. In 1918, he opened the first Madonia on Adams Place in the Bronx, moving 14 years later to its larger location on Arthur Avenue. In the 1960s, Mario’s sons, Pete and Frank, took over running the bakery. In 1982, the third generation represented by Pete’s son, Mario, stepped in. Tragedy struck when Mario was killed in a car crash when he was only 38. His brother, Peter, who had earned a master’s degree in urban studies at the University of Chicago, was working as a deputy commissioner for the New York Fire Department.

Oczywiście, że metody które stosuje adm. Emanuela w walce z przestępczością są jedyne i niepowtarzalne. Polegają one głównie na oczekiwaniu, że problem sam się rozwiąże i gangi narkotykowe same oddadzą broń. Jeżeli nawet gangi same się nawzajem wystrzelają, to na ich miejsce przyjdą inni (np. MS13 ze wschodniego wybrzeża). Policjanci natomiast będą się bawić w biurokratów i wypełniać papiery uzasadniające każdorazowe wyjęcie rewolweru. Myślę, że będą raczej unikać takich zdarzeń, a gangi będą dalej hulać po mieście. Wzorcem dla Chicago są zapewne Los Angeles i San Francisco, gdzie takie przęstępstwa jak włamania i kradzierze samochodów już są tolerowane. Winne temu jest społeczeństwo, a nie przestępcy.

           Transportation Startup Passport Acquires License Plate Reading Company NuPark       Cache   Translate Page      

Passport, a startup that makes software to manage payments and other aspects of parking, transit and tolling, has acquired the license plate reading company NuPark.

NuPark is focused on parking specifically, with an emphasis on technology that allows cameras to read license plates, generating data as well as citations for violations. Passport already had a substantial footprint in parking, creating mobile apps for more than 450 customers mostly in the public sector. Larger cities like Boston and Chicago, as well as smaller municipalities such as Morton, Penn., have Passport apps that allow customers to pay for parking with their cellphones.

The acquisition follows a big infusion of capital for Passport at the end of 2017, which CEO Bob Youakim said at the time he might use to buy other companies.

“With NuPark, we see an opportunity to create a differentiated offering for our clients, enabling them to further automate their operations under a single platform,” Youakim said in a press release. “Our technologies are very complementary, and we are aligned by a shared vision.”

The deal will lift Passport’s client base up to more than 550, according to the statement, implying that NuPark is bringing about 100 unique customers to the table.

On top of license plate reading and parking enforcement, NuPark also offers data analytics and dashboards. The company has worked with a lot of quasi-governmental entities such as airports and higher education institutions, but has also worked with municipalities such as Longmont, Colo., and Flagstaff, Ariz., according to its website.

          'Go Be a N----- Somewhere Else': ACLU Files Lawsuit Citing San Francisco Police's Documented History of Vile Racism      Cache   Translate Page      
The city by the bay has been a hotbed of illegal race-based policing. This is just the latest example.

San Francisco's Tenderloin is a heavily populated, racially mixed neighborhood in the heart of one of America's iconic progressive cities. Yet when the San Francisco Police Department and the DEA targeted the neighborhood to crack down on drug dealing between 2013 and 2015 as part of "Operation Safe Schools," the only people they managed to roll up were black.

When 37 black defendants—and no defendants of any other race—got hauled away, nobody noticed. That is until the defendants started showing up looking for federal public defenders. The federal public defenders noticed, and they began making noise about racial disparities and selective enforcement of the drug laws.

Their charges only grew louder with the posting in 2015 of undercover police surveillance video to YouTube revealing a police officer muttering "fucking BMs," police code for black males, as he monitored a group of young men on the street. The video also apparently showed an undercover informant turning down drugs being offered by an Asian woman to instead buy drugs from a black woman.

In January 2017, 12 of those charged in the operation won a discovery motion from a judge who found there was "substantial evidence suggestive of racially selective enforcement" in their arrests. Instead of allowing the proceedings to continue so a full accounting of police conduct could occur, prosecutors instead dropped the charges.

At the time, the presiding judge, U.S. District Court Judge Edward Chen, made clear that while he was granting the dismissals because they were in the best interest of the defendants, he was concerned that doing so would prevent the allegations of police bias from being aired.

"These are serious issues, serious allegations regarding claims of discriminatory enforcement patterns," Chen said. "I think the defendants in this case have raised a very substantial prima facie case that, at the very least, raises some serious questions that would warrant a response and a full airing of the issues."

Now, a year and a half later, the ACLU of Northern California on Thursday filed a federal civil lawsuit on behalf of six of those rolled up in the busts. The lawsuit alleges the plaintiffs were targeted because of their race and cites a survey of Tenderloin drug users to bolster its case. That survey found racial diversity among Tenderloin drug sellers. About half were black, but 20 percent were Latino and 17 percent were white.

The lawsuit is "an opportunity to hold the actors in the San Francisco Police Department and the city itself accountable for the police department’s longstanding practices of engaging in racially discriminatory law enforcement," said ACLU attorney Novella Coleman, who is representing the plaintiffs.

It's also about financial relief for the plaintiffs, Coleman allowed. "The court will determine how to monetize that," she said.

Not an Anomaly

Racially biased policing is nothing new in San Francisco. In fact, as Ezekiel Edwards, director of the national ACLU's Criminal Law Reform Project, pointed out in a post announcing the lawsuit, the city has the dubious honor of setting precedent for the idea that law enforcement targeting people based on their race is unconstitutional. In an 1886 case, Yick Wo v. Hopkins, the city attempted to deny laundry permits to Chinese people while granting them to non-Chinese. Such an action could only be explained by the city's "hostility to the race and nationality" of the applicants, a violation of the 14th Amendment's guarantee of equal protection under the law.

Fast forward to the 21st century, and the evidence that the city's penchant for targeting non-whites for harsher treatment remains intact just keeps piling up. Numerous studies in the past few years have documented racially biased policing practices, including a 2002 ACLU report on SFPD racial profiling and a city-commissioned study by a national expert on biased policing.

Those studies uncovered a range of bias-related problems and made concrete recommendations for reform. Those were ignored. As the rotten policing practices festered, more reports detailing racial and ethnic disparities across the criminal justice system came out in 2013 and 2015.

Then, in 2015, as "Operation Safe Schools" was winding down, SFPD was hit by a new scandal when officers were caught exchanging racist text messages. Some used the N-word, others referenced cross burnings. Officers were caught calling black residents "savages," "wild animals," and "barbarians," and one officer told his sergeant "All n------ must fucking hang." Another officer sent a text with an image of a white man spraying a black child with a hose above the caption "Go be a n----- somewhere else."

That finally got the attention of city fathers—as well as the Obama-era Justice Department. The city district attorney convened a Blue Ribbon Panel on Transparency, Accountability, and Fairness in Law Enforcement that documented SFPD's history of racially disparate enforcement and concluded that it was "in urgent need of important reforms." In 2016, the Justice Department weighed in with its own report finding that the department still engaged in racially biased policing, especially around traffic stops and police use of deadly force.

It's Not Just San Francisco

The ACLU's Edwards concisely makes the case that San Francisco is no exception when it comes to racially biased policing:

“Unequal treatment by race is commonplace among police departments large and small in cities across a range of ideological leanings. This is the reason for the racial profiling lawsuits filed in New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Maricopa County, Arizona. This is the motivation, prior to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, for Justice Department consent decrees seeking to end racially discriminatory police practices in Seattle; Los Angeles County; New Orleans; Baltimore; Newark; East Haven, Connecticut; and Ferguson, Missouri. This is why the ACLU has found racial disparities in marijuana possession arrests across the country, in drug possession arrests more broadly, in stops and frisks in Boston, in seatbelt enforcement in Florida, and in arrests for low-level offenses in Minneapolis.”

When will things ever change?

          Why are the Officers and Employees of Civil Liberties Group Liberty Refusing to Implement its Policy of Opposition to the IHRA?      Cache   Translate Page      

According to Liberty’s Olivia Percival, ‘Liberty is not actively campaigning against the IHRA definition’


Liberty, formerly known as the National Council for Civil Liberties, was founded in 1934. This was a time of heightened anti-fascist activity in which the Jews of the East End of London were under attack from Oswald Moseley’s British Union of Fascists.  In 1989 the organisation changed its name to Liberty.

The organisation has provided a career path for budding Labour politicians such as Patricia Hewitt, who went on to become an MP and in charge of Neil Kinnock’s personal office before being brought down by the cash for influence scandal.  Harriet Harman was a former legal officer and her husband Jack Dromey was Chair of the Executive Committee. Shami Chakrabarti the previous Director is now Shadow Attorney General. What all the ex-employees of Liberty who find their way to the top of the Labour Party have in common is their abandoning and jettisoning of any pretence of support for civil liberties.  Harriet Harman for example went along with all Tony Blair’s anti-terrorism legislation without a squeak. Chakrabarti’s attack on Ken Livingstone suggests that she too considers civil liberties to be a drag on her career.
Martha Spurrier, another in a long line of hopeful Establishment Labour politicians
The current Director, Martha Spurrier is, like her predecessor, a barrister. Liberty/NCCL has never been a particular radical organisation, especially in recent times. In its earlier times it had no difficulty supporting for example the internment of Oswald Moseley in the war, something which led to mass resignations from the organisation.
During the period of Hewitt and Harman the organisation adopted a policy which was in effect pro-paedophile. The Paedophile Information Exchange became affiliated at one point and it was only in 1983 that the organisation rejected paedophilia as just another sexual life style. All that can be said about this period is that paedophile groups were able to take advantage of the sexual revolution of the 1960’s to propagate the idea that sexual freedom should include the right of adults to have sex with children and that this found favour amongst a section of the libertarian left and gay rights campaigners such as Peter Tatchell.
Liberty/NCCL has always seen itself as part of the British Establishment. It is therefore no surprise that when Professor Jonathan Rosenhead of the LSE moved a motion at the May 2018 AGM, seconded by Louise Christian, a well known solicitor, opposing the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of anti-Semitism, its officers took fright. The motion itself was passed almost unanimously.
The IHRA is a consensus position of the British political establishment and Liberty is, if nothing else, an establishment group. When I heard that the motion had been passed I wrote to Liberty inquiring about their new policy.  I heard nothing for some months.
I had quite forgotten about my inquiry until an email arrived from Olivia Percival, a former government solicitor who is now Liberty’s Advice & Information Officer. As I read the email I became more and more disconcerted. Ms Percival did not have one good thing to say about Liberty’s policy. What she seemed to be doing was to explain why the organisation was doing nothing about the organisation. 
Percival first began by telling me that ‘I would emphasise that the motion reaffirmed Liberty’s opposition to anti-semitism in all its forms’. The implication being that opposition to the IHRA might be construed as support for anti-Semitism!
It was the next paragraph that left me open mouthed. It would appear that Percival, who is clearly not stupid, deliberately didn’t want to understand the reason for opposition to the IHRA: She wrote that:
‘As an organisation that both fervently supports free speech and fervently opposes anti-semitism, Liberty has an obligation to carefully consider the intersection of these two issues. Whenever we talk about hate speech, we immediately have to think about the boundaries of free speech. Drawing that boundary is not always easy. The position Liberty has taken on the IHRA definition comes from a good faith effort to think through this issue.
The clear implication being that opposition to the IHRA meant support for anti-Semitic hate speech. Why else would she talk about the ‘intersection’ of the two issues of free speech and anti-Semitism?
What Percival was doing was to revisit the policy of Liberty’s American equivalent, the American Civil Liberties Union which infamously supported a march through the Skokie in Chicago, where large numbers of Holocaust survivors lived, by the American Nazi Party. See the NYT, July 1978 THE A.C.L.U. AGAINST ITSELF.
Olivia Percival's email to Tony Greenstein
Thousands of Jews and others left the ACLU over their support for the right of neo-Nazis to propagate their filth and hatred. Indeed this controversy briefly surfaced in the NCCL  when its American Director, Andrew Puddephat I believe, argued for the freedom of speech of fascists in this country. It sparked a heated controversy within the NCCL which led to his departure.
Percival however has completely misunderstood the nature of the opposition to the IHRA, some would say deliberately so. Jonathan Rosenhead is himself Jewish. Neither he nor Jewish Voice for Labour of which he is a member support free speech for anti-Semites. Opposition to the IHRA has nothing to do with support for free speech for racists and fascists. There may indeed be an interesting discussion about ‘the boundaries of free speech’ when it comes to hate speech but it has nothing to do with the IHRA and it is dishonest for Percival to suggest otherwise.
Opposition to the IHRA is about opposition to the attack on the rights of supporters of the Palestinians and anti-Zionists to oppose Israeli Apartheid. It has nothing to do with supporting the rights of anti-Semites. It is disingenuous to suggest this.
The American ACLU defended the rights of Nazis in Skokie, Chicag- pictured is a Vietnam veteran
If Olivia Percival had bothered to read the resolution which was passed she would know that it begins by reiterating its ‘abhorrence of antisemitism as a repellent undercurrent..’ Even this well-heeled former government solicitor should be aware that some of the most vigorous supporters of Israel, Zionism and the IHRA are also some of the most notorious racist bigots in politics.  Donald Trump combines ardent support for Israel with anti-Semitism. His election campaign was widely condemned by American Jews for its use of anti-semitic stereotypes and subliminal messages. See Anti-Semitism is no longer an undertone of Trump’s campaign. It’s the melody.
The person who masterminded Trump’s campaign, Steve Bannon, is personally anti-Semitic and a supporter of the European far-Right and Tommy Robinson. The founder of the American alt-Right, the neo-Nazi Richard Spencer has even declared that he is a White Zionist
The policy passed by Liberty in opposition to the IHRA has nothing whatsoever to do with support for anti-Semitism or anti-Semitic hate speech. What it does do is support freedom of speech for opponents of Israeli apartheid. It is dishonest of Percival to suggest otherwise.
And to add insult to injury, this establishment lawyer that Liberty has taken under its wing goes on to state that ‘We have been very clear that Liberty is not actively campaigning against the IHRA definition, as it is not an institutional priority.’ That is obvious because there is not one single mention of the IHRA on Liberty’s website.
At a time when right-wing Labour Councils are adopting the IHRA, in consort with Tory councillors, with the specific intention of curtailing the rights of Palestine solidarity supporters, Liberty under its present leadership chooses to ignore its own policy and do nothing.
As if to emphasise her own disagreement with the policy Percival writes that
‘it’s often the case that members (and even sometimes our staff!) disagree with some of the organisation’s positions but remain engaged in an overall common purpose, and even work from within the organisation to change it.
Whilst no one expects staff to agree with every resolution, it is nonetheless their duty to give implement policy passed. The IHRA is being pushed hard by the present Conservative government, a government which is aligned in the European Parliament with far-Right anti-Semitic parties.  The IHRA is being used on campuses to prevent or seriously hinder Palestine solidarity campaigns.
Even the principal author of the IHRA or the Working Definition of Anti-Semitism, the American Jewish Committee’s Kenneth Stern has acknowledged that the IHRA is being used in ways that were never intended, as a means of chilling free speech. In testimony to the House of Representatives in November 2017, he warned that:
The definition was not drafted, and was never intended, as a tool to target or chill speech on a college campus. In fact, at a conference in 2010 about the impact of the definition, I highlighted this misuse, and the damage it could do.
Stern spokeabout how the IHRA was ‘was being employed in an attempt to restrict academic freedom and punish political speech’. One could argue that Stern was being hypocritical since the IHRA’s whole purpose was to render anti-Zionist criticism as  antisemitic.
Stern described how Zionist pressure groups in the US ‘argued that even if  the [court] cases lost, they had what seemed to them a positive benefit – they  chilled pro -Palestinian  expression.’Stern asked a question particularly relevant to the current debate. 
‘Imagine a definition designed for Palestinians. If  “Denying the Jewish people their right to self- determination, and denying Israel the right to exist” is antisemitism, then shouldn’t “Denying  the Palestinian people their right to self- determination,  and denying Palestine the right to exist”  be anti -Palestinianism?’
Stern described how the IHRA had been used to curtail free speech in Britain, listing the “Israel Apartheid Week” event which was cancelled by Central Lancashire University and the case of the Holocaust survivor who was required to change the title of  a campus talk by Manchester university after an Israeli diplomat complained that the title violated the definition.’  Stern described as ‘Perhaps most egregious’ of all the call on a university to conduct an inquiry of  a professor for ‘antisemitism’, based on an article she had written years before. Accurately describing what had happened as ‘chilling and McCarthy -like.’
As Jewish student Joanna Phillips wrotein Jewish News/Times of Israel Jewish students deserve a better definition of anti-Semitism’
Kenneth Stern … went as far as to write to the US House of Representatives urging them not to adopt this definition for American campuses. Jewish students need a tailored definition, written with the realities of modern universities in mind, not one designed for researchers.
Stern was prompted to write his letter after seeing the waves of censorship the definition unleashed within American campuses. The IHRA definition fails to properly distinguish between legitimate criticism of Israel and hatred of Jews disguised as anti-Zionism.
It would seem that Olivia Percival and Martha Spurrier, to whom I have written, also have difficulty distinguishing between anti-Semitism and criticism of Israel and Zionism. If Percival and Spurrier refuse to implement Liberty policy on the IHRA then they have no alternative but to resign.  Freedom of speech on university campuses and on Palestine is not a peripheral issue.
Below is my letter to Ms Percival and the policy that Liberty has adopted.
Tony Greenstein
Letter of Reply to Olivia Percival
Dear Olivia,
Thank you for your email of 2nd October concerning the decision of the Liberty AGM to oppose the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of anti-Semitism. I am surprised that you sent this from a ‘noreply’ email address. That is what my broadband supplier does. It indicates that you don’t wish to enter into dialogue on this subject. I have therefore dug out an email address for your Director and may post this more widely given your reluctance to be more open.
I am extremely disappointed by your response, which is almost apologetic for the fact that the motion was passed. Why else would you emphasise that members ‘and even sometimes our staff! disagree with some of the organisation’s positions’.  This strongly suggests that you intend to do your best to ignore the motion and do nothing about it. It also suggests that you disagree with the policy.
What is the purpose of passing policy at Liberty’s AGM if you and the staff immediately disregard it? The IHRA has already been used in this country to prevent an Israeli Apartheid Week at the University of Central Lancashire, to prevent Professor Richard Falk speaking on campuses and to impose restrictions on other pro-Palestinian events. Even the person who drafted the IHRA, Kenneth Stern, in testimony to the House of Representatives last November warned that:
‘The definition was not drafted, and was never intended, as a tool to target or chill speech on a college campus. In fact, at a conference in 2010 about the impact of the definition, I highlighted this misuse, and the damage it could do.’
I find particularly surprising your point that Liberty ‘both fervently supports free speech and fervently opposes anti-Semitism’ as if opposition to the IHRA means support for anti-Semitism. Viktor Orban, Hungary’s anti-Semitic Prime Minister certainly doesn’t share this position as his government fully supports the IHRA whilst lauding its war-time pro-Nazi ruler Admiral Horthy. You clearly do not understand why many people oppose both the IHRA and oppose racism and anti-Semitism.
Of the 8, yes 8, governments that have fully adopted the definition, (Macedonia, Bulgaria, Romania, Lithuania, Austria) 5 possess far-Right governments and one, Austria has a neo-Nazi party Heinz Christian Strache’s Freedom Party as the junior coalition partner.
You speak about the ‘intersection’ of free speech and opposition to anti-Semitism with talk about the ‘boundaries of free speech.’ You seem to be labouring under the misapprehension that opposition to the IHRA has something to do with free speech for anti-Semites or racists.  Let me disabuse you of this fact.
The IHRA ‘definition’ of anti-Semitism has nothing to do with opposing anti-Semitism and everything to do with conflating opposition to Zionism and support for the Palestinians with anti-Semitism. The IHRA is about defining critics of Israeli Apartheid as anti-Semitic. The demolition of Arab villages to make way for Jewish settlements and towns is inherent in what a Jewish State means.  According to the IHRA to make this point is anti-Semitic and you appear to go along with this nonsense. 
I find it disappointing that you haven’t grasped this elementary fact. Clearly you haven’t acquainted yourself with recent debates around the IHRA. Perhaps I can apprise you of them?
Professor David Feldman, who was Vice-Chair of the Chakrabarti Inquiry and  is Director of the Pears Institute for the Study of Anti-Semitism described the IHRA definition as‘bewilderingly imprecise.’ with its talk of anti-Semitism being a ‘certain perception which might be expressed as anti-Semitism’. 
Sir Stephen Sedley, who was a Judge in the Court of Appeal, besides being Jewish, wrote, in Defining Anti-Semitism that the IHRA‘fails the first test of any definition: it is indefinite.’ In what is the most concise critique of the IHRA yet, Sedley took it apart for its deliberate attempt to prevent any systematic critique of the Israeli state and Zionism.
Hugh Tomlinson QC in an Opinion declared, as did other lawyers, that the IHRA had a ‘potential chilling effect on public bodies which, in the absence of definitional clarity, may seek to sanction or prohibit any conduct which has been labelled by third parties as antisemitic without applying any clear criterion of assessment.’
Geoffrey Robertson QC, who is a renowned human rights lawyer likewise described the IHRA as likely to chill criticism of action by the Government of Israel and advocacy of sanctions as a means to deter human rights abuses in Gaza and elsewhere. Robertson described the IHRA as not fit for purpose’
Interestingly Robertson also finds, along with Sedley, that when it comes to genuine anti-Semitism, the IHRA actually raises the bar because ‘By pivoting upon racial hatred ... it fails to catch those who exhibit hostility and prejudice – or apply discrimination – against Jewish people for no reason other than that they are Jewish.’
There is a very simple definition of anti-Semitism the Oxford English Dictionary definition: ‘Hostility to or prejudice against Jews’ which catches attitudes that fall short of hatred. For example someone who says that he doesn’t hate Jews but he doesn’t want to live next to them or have his daughter marry a Jew is not, by the IHRA definition, anti-Semitic. 
I hope you and Liberty’s officials will revisit your obvious reluctance to embrace the decision of Liberty’s AGM. I realize that the IHRA is the consensus position of the British Establishment and that Liberty has traditionally seen itself as the liberal wing of that Establishment. However the IHRA is also a definition of anti-Semitism that anti-Semites such as the Polish and Hungarian governments feel comfortable with.  I should add that traditionally the British Establishment combined both pro-Zionism and anti-Semitism.
The IHRA is being used and has already been used in this country to close down debate on Palestine.  It has nothing to do with anti-Semitism. If free speech is not a concern of Liberty then what is the purpose of the organisation?
I look forward to your responding a tad quicker than the 6 months it took from my last post to you.
Yours sincerely,

Tony Greenstein

          Trump Makes A Mockery Out Of Kavanaugh Swearing-In Ceremony      Cache   Translate Page      

In a highly despicable action, Trump turned Judge Kavanaugh's swearing-in ceremony into a Trump rally where he viciously attacked his rivals and called Dr. Ford's allegations "lies and deceptions."

After thanking those present, Trump opened up the swearing-in ceremony of a US. Supreme Court Justice as if he was in a nut job campaign rally.

Trump said, "I would like to begin tonight’s proceeding differently than perhaps any other event of such magnitude. On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure."

Poor baby.

Trump's whole political persona is one of a sniveling snowflake and that has now turned bright red on most of Trump's surrogates faces on Fox News.

"Those who step forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation, not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception. What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency and due process," Trump said.

Most likely describing his own judicial problems, Trump continued, "Our country, a man or woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. (Applause.) And with that, I must state that you, sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent. Thank you. (Applause.) You were. Thank you very much. (Inaudible.)

Shawn diz que durante todos esses anos ele tem cumprido a sua palavra de não voltar aos ringues, mas quando ele estava no avião, prestes a deixá-lo, ele ouviu três palavras de HHH que ele nunca vai esquecer: Você está pronto? HHH diz que isso não é apenas sobre Shawn, mas sobre o que os Brothers of Destruction fizeram. Shawn diz que é oficial, os D-Generation X estão de volta.

Os dois começam a tirar a camisa e por baixo estão vestidos com a camisa do D-Generation X. Eles celebram no ringue enquanto a música da dupla toca na arena.

Os comentaristas destacam algumas atrações da noite, como a Six-Man Tag Team Match entre The Shield vs. Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre. Além disso, teremos outro combate de equipes entre The Bellas Twins & Ronda Rousey vs. Riott Squad. A WWE Hall of Famer, Trish Stratus vai estar presente no show de hoje à noite. Bobby Lashley vai estar em ação contra Kevin Owens, à seguir.

De volta e Finn Bálor e Bayley são entrevistados nos bastidores. De repente, Lio Rush e Bobby Lashley interrompem e dizem que é uma besteira falar sobre o Mixed Match Challenge quando se tem um cara como Lashley para entrevistar. Rush é só elogios para seu "cliente".

Vamos ao ringue e Elias está lá para mais uma apresentação. Vaiado em alguns momentos, Elias continuou sua apresentação criticando algumas coisas de Chicago até ser interrompido pela música da RAW Women's Champion, Ronda Rousey. Ela estará em ação à seguir.

Comercial!

De volta e Ronda Rousey está no ringue a espera de sua companheiras, The Bellas Twins que aparecem logo depois. Suas adversários, The Riott Squad são as próximas.

Ainda hoje, Trish Stratus vai estar no ringue para falar sobre o evento Evolution. Além disso, o The Shield vai enfrentar Braun Strowman e os RAW Tag Team Champions, Dolph Ziggler e Drew McIntyre. Nos bastidores, a equipe heel conversa sobre a derrota no Super Show-Down. Strowman diz que está cansado de toda essa conversa e que ele está junto com os dois apenas por um propósito, ter ajuda para ganhar o WWE Universal Championship, pois depois disso, as coisas ficaram bem para todos. Ele pede para se concentrarem no embate de hoje.

Vemos "Constable" Baron Corbin andando nos bastidores. Ele encontra Heath Slater que pede uma oportunidade de participar do WWE World Cup, mas Corbin despreza Slater.

Comercial!

De volta e os comentaristas relembram o que aconteceu no início do show quando Triple H e Shawn Michaels confirmaram o retorno do D-Generation X. Foi confirmado que D-Generation X vs. Brothers of Destruction se enfrentarão no evento Crown Jewel.

Vamos a arena e vemos vários lutadores desconhecidos no ringue. Baron Corbin aparece e diz que reuniu os melhores lutadores de cada parte do mundo para essa Battle Royal. Ele apresenta um por um de cada país, e para representar os Estados Unidos ele se auto coloca no combate.

Battle Royal Match: El Conquistador foi o vencedor!
- Depois de eliminar a maioria dos lutadores no combate, Corbin tinha apenas o El Conquistador como ultimo oponente. Porém, para a surpresa dele, seu oponente era nada mais, nada menos que Kurt Angle, que se revelou após vencer o embate. A música do ex-General Manager tocou enquanto ele celebrava a caminho dos bastidores. Corbin ficou totalmente surpreso com o que aconteceu.

Comercial!

De volta e Kurt Angle é entrevistado por Charly Caruso nos bastidores. Ela o parabeniza pela vitória e qualificação para o World Cup. Angle, ironicamente, lembra que ele ainda está de férias e sai.

De volta e Trish Stratus vem para o ringue. A Hall of Famer é muito ovacionada pelos fãs em Chicago. Ela começa sua promo falando sobre o evento Evolution ser um momento histórico para todas as mulheres. Logo ela é interrompida por Alexa Bliss e Mickie James. A ex-RAW Women's Champion diz que viu Stratus ganhar todos aqueles títulos e combates, e hoje ela pode dizer o que sempre quis. Bliss diz que Stratus é uma porcaria e que se ela lutasse naquela época, Stratus não conquistaria nada do que conquistou. Stratus diz que ela está aqui agora e podem se confrontar antes do Evolution. Bliss caminha até o ringue, mas elas acabam recuando a pedido da própria James. Stratus diz que James sabe o que é estar no ringue contra uma 7 vezes campeã feminina e no Evolution ela vai mostrar a Bliss como é tomar uma surra de uma integrante do Hall of Fame. Bliss e James confrontam Stratus e esta diz que também trouxe uma amiga. De repente, a música de Lita toca e ela vem para o ringue. Uma briga entre as duas equipes começa com Lita e Stratus a levar a melhor.

Nos bastidores, o The Shield manda uma mensagem para Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler e Drew McIntyre antes do combate de equipes de hoje à noite.

Vamos ao ringue e Bobby Roode e Chad Gable caminham para o ringue.

Comercial!

Tag Team Match: Bobby Roode & Chad Gable vs. The Ascension (Konnor & Viktor)

É mostrado que o WWE Championship será defendido por AJ Styles frente a Daniel Bryan. Após isso, todo o card parcial do Crown Jewel é mostrado.

Paul Heyman aparece na ringside e cumprimenta o público. Heyman diz que tem algo muito irônico acontecendo hoje, pois, ele como todos em Chicago estão aqui para ver o Shield ser arrebentado por Braun Strowman e os Dogs of War, porém, a menos de 72 horas, Roman Reigns e Strowman estavam na Austrália se arrebentando e, após 20 horas de voo, estão aqui novamente e isso é a WWE.

Enquanto isso, em Suplex City, Brock Lesnar está dormindo e sequer está vendo o RAW. Amanhã ele irá comer muito e irá para sua academia, feita e desenhada por ele, para que lá ele possa se preparar para ser o primeiro homem a ser campeão de dois esportes, sendo na WWE e no UFC. Heyman diz que Reigns sempre precisou de uma "stable" para ser campeão, enquanto Lesnar sempre esteve sozinho.

Heyman diz que Lesnar será o novo Universal Champion na Arábia Saudita. Toca a música do The Shield e Heyman se assusta, porém, para a sua sorte, Ambrose, Rollins e Reigns entram pela arquibancada e não pela rampa de entrada. A seguir teremos The Shield em ação.

Comercial!

6-Man Tag Team Match: The Shield (WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, WWE Intercontinenal Champion Seth Rollins e Dean Ambrose) vs. Braun Strowman e Dogs of War (RAW Tag Team Champions Drew McIntyre e Dolph Ziggler)
- A luta termina após McIntyre aplicar um "Claymor Kick" em Ambrose, seguido de pinfall.

Após a luta, enquanto Reigns e Rollins ficam no ringue, Ambrose abandona os dois e sai desapontado, encerrando o show.

          The National Rifle Association recruits LGBTQ gun owners even as it denigrates community      Cache   Translate Page      

National Rifle Association national spokesperson Dana Loesch continued the group’s tactic of offering surface-level support for LGBTQ gun ownership while simultaneously spouting attacks against the LGBTQ community from the organization’s news outlet, NRATV.

During the October 5 edition of her NRATV show Relentless, Loesch highlighted the “LGBTQ community and Second Amendment advocates working together” at the 33rd Annual Gun Rights Policy Conference in Chicago, where pro-gun LGBTQ groups the Pink Pistols and Operation Blazing Sword announced their merger.

Loesch claimed that gun ownership “is an obvious fit for the LGBT community” and owning a gun is about “refusing to be a victim, whether you’re part of the gay community, or an ethnic minority, or whether you’re a single woman”:

DANA LOESCH (HOST): Any group that is more susceptible to violence will obviously and clearly want to protect itself. And that’s exactly why supporting the human right to self-defense is an obvious fit for the LGBT community.

LOESCH: That’s really what this is all about -- refusing to be a victim, whether you’re part of the gay community, or an ethnic minority, or whether you’re a single woman. I mean, it’s not about identity politics. But some individuals, and I’ve described before the perpetrator behind Pulse nightclub, or the individual who killed a teenager in the East Coast before then targeting a gay club in Seattle and said that he did it specifically because their lifestyles were antithetical to his radicalized beliefs. It does exist and it has happened in the United States. It’s not about identity politics, it’s about protecting yourself and other individuals.

While she encourages members of the LGBTQ community to own firearms, Loesch has also promoted hateful and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric in the past -- comparing an anti-gay baker having to serve a gay couple to “slavery” and claiming that transgender individuals have a “mental illness.”

Referring to Chelsea Manning, a transgender woman, Loesch said earlier this year on NRATV, “Just because you get some boobs, and you put some red lipstick on, poorly applied, and a very poor smoky eye bad dye job, that don’t make you a chick.”

National Rifle Association board members and organization leaders have a well-documented track record of espousing bigoted and homophobic rhetoric toward LGBTQ people while also exploiting violence against them to promote fear and increased gun ownership, a strategy that enrichens gun manufacturers that donate to the NRA.


          Grande retorno pode acontecer no RAW (Spoilers)      Cache   Translate Page      
A WWE sempre é cheia de surpresas, pois eles fazem o melhor para causa grandes tópicos em seus shows. Se este recente relatório estiver certo, o RAW de hoje à noite pode ser muito bom, especialmente se você for fã de Kurt Angle.

Nós ouvimos relatos dizendo que Angle está nos bastidores do RAW em Chicago neste exato momento. Só o tempo dirá se ele será ou não usado no programa. No entanto, o fato de ele ter feito uma viagem ao local certamente poderia ser uma indicação de que suas férias acabaram.

Anteriormente informamos que a WWE pode estar distanciando-se do tema típico de "RAW vs. SmackDown" para o Survivor Series e, ao invés disso, eles se concentrarão em Team Angle vs. Team Baron Corbin. Se Angle retornar hoje à noite, poderemos muito bem ver o início desse enredo.

Angle tirou férias no RAW pós SummerSlam e desde então Baron Corbin assumiu o cargo de Gerente Geral da brand vermelha. Isso é obviamente algo que Kurt gostaria de mudar se tivesse a chance e parece algo que pode acontecer nesta noite.

          Skull Session: Branden Bowen's Return, Bubba Bolden on the Move, and DJ Carton Talks Baseball      Cache   Translate Page      

I'm about to attack this Tuesday with the same enthusiasm this legend has while playing the bass drum:

ICYMI

Word of the Day: Enervate.

 BRANDEN BOWEN BACK? Don't look now, but the Buckeye offensive line might be getting a little reinforcements.

When Branden Bowen announced in early September that he was having surgery on his leg, I assumed that would rule him out for the entire season, but it's looking like that might be a bad assumption.

Urban Meyer was asked about Bowen's recovery on Monday, and he said that "he's close" and that "there's a chance" he could return this season. That was following this Instagram post:

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Coming back for everything Im owed.

A post shared by Branden Bowen (@brandenbowen) on

This is purely speculation, but I'm thinking Bowen could benefit from the new redshirt rule, but instead of playing his four games at the beginning of the season, he'd get them at the end, during a potential postseason run, and still preserve a season of eligibility.

Regardless, it's just good to see him healthy.

 BUBBA BOLDEN A BUCKEYE TO BE? Some of you folks probably remember four-star safety Bubba Bolden from the class of 2017, who flirted with the Buckeyes late in the recruiting cycle before ultimately choosing USC.

Bolden was the No. 7 safety and No. 59 overall player in the country and a high school teammate of Tate Martell and Haskell Garrett at Bishop Gorman High School.

He would have been a huge get for for the Buckeyes, and now it seems like they might have another shot at his services, as Bolden is no longer enrolled at USC.

From the OC Register:

In a statement announcing his departure, Bolden said he faced lengthy disciplinary action for his role in an off-the-field incident that occurred in February in which he was cited for underage drinking at an off-campus party, violating the school’s code of conduct. Bolden added that he “participated in mutual trash-talking with fellow party-goers” and left with friends when “the vibe at the party turned unfriendly,” but no other details about his behavior were given.

The incident was reported nine days later to USC’s Office of Student Judicial Affairs, which began an investigation. The party hosts reported “feeling threatened by me that night,” Bolden said.

As a result, Bolden, 19, said he was handed a 28-month suspension that recently took effect. The suspension was not to be lifted until the party hosts, fellow students, had graduated, according to his statement. His mother, Breezy Bolden, said Monday that Bolden was suspended from attending classes, which is needed in order to play for the team and remain eligible.

So Bolden is in search of a new home. And I have a hunch me might be willing to consider Ohio State, if the Buckeyes were willing to take him.

Or perhaps that plan is already in motion?

Makes you think, for sure.

All I know is once Sinbad's nephew leaves this offseason, the whole safety situation is probably going to get a hell of a lot worse. I'm not about to refuse help from a guy who was penciled in to start at USC in his second year. 

 BETTER AT A DIFFERENT SPORT. I always love athletes who reach near the pinnacle of a sport and then remind everyone that they probably could have done another one just as well, if not better – because in most cases, they're probably right.

Ohio State point guard commit DJ Carton is one of those individuals.

From Logan Newman of USA Today High School Sports:

Until eighth grade, the Bettendorf (Iowa) High School senior was a two-sport athlete, and basketball wasn’t the first.

“Growing up, I always loved basketball but I was really good at baseball,” Carton said. “That was probably my best sport.”

But the pace of the game bothered Carton, whose speed, movement and playmaking ability is a take on his favorite NBA player, John Wall.

“I like the fast pace of basketball, I thought baseball was a little too slow for me,” he said.

The decision also came down to finances.

“My mom, she paid a lot, put a lot into my sports and stuff like that, and I thought to focus on one sport and hopefully get my college paid for … and hopefully help support the family in the future,” he said.

It's hard to fault Carton's decision when he's the No. 24 player in the country and the No. 2 player at his position, but this makes me wonder – how good could he have been at baseball?

 SPEAKING OF TWO SPORT STARS. I had no idea that Jackie Robinson ever played football, but from this tape, it looks like he was an absolute monster.

The video is as advertised – he really does look like Reggie Bush out there, except possibly even more dominant.

 HOCKEY SCHOOL? For the first time in program history, Ohio State has the top-ranked hockey program in the land. The latest coaches poll has the Buckeyes at No. 1, with Ohio State receiving 18 out of 37 first-place votes. 

Ohio State has yet to play its first game of the season, as the Buckeyes open with Arizona State on Friday, but this is a solid way to start.

          ‘Sue Sue In The City’: Eden Sher’s ‘The Middle’ Spinoff Adds Brock Ciarlelli And Kimberley Crossman To Cast      Cache   Translate Page      

Eden Sher & Brock Ciarlelli from a 2016 episode of "The Middle"

When beloved family sitcom The Middle went off the air this past May after nine seasons on ABC, fans of the series hoped for a spinoff centered around daughter Sue Heck.

In August, their dreams came true when ABC gave Eden Sher’s quirky character a pilot production commitment that is being written and executive produced by The Middle creators Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline.

The potential series, a single-camera comedy, will follow 20-something Sue, an eternal optimist, as she leaves her family’s home in Orson, Indiana, for a shot at a better life and career in the hotel industry in a big city, Chicago.

Sue’s supporters will now be happy to learn a little bit more about the potential series as it has been given an official title and two key cast members have signed on.

          Lyric Opera musicians go on strike, threatening opera season      Cache   Translate Page      

CHICAGO – The 64th season of the Lyric Opera of Chicago was disrupted Tuesday when musicians walked off the job Tuesday to protest cuts proposed by management.

The musicians set up a picket line outside the Civic Opera House on Tuesday and played excerpts from various operas as they expressed opposition by the opera company to cut the number of orchestra musicians by five.

“What we are suggesting to the orchestra is that we reduce the number of core players through attrition and with voluntary retirement benefits,” said Lyric Opera CEO Anthony Freud. “The thing is that currently, the core number of musicians is 74. Many of the operas we perform don’t need an orchestra of 74.”

The opera company also wants to cut the pay of remaining musicians by 8 percent and the number of working weeks by two weeks to 22 weeks.

“Anthony Freud and Lyric management are demanding radical cuts that would decimate the orchestra and forever diminish Lyric Opera,” the musicians say in a statement.

As a result of the strike, the Lyric cancelled Thursday’s matinee performance of Puccini’s “La Boheme” and Saturday’s opening night for Mozart’s “Idomeneo.” have been cancelled. Also cancelled was Friday’s performance of “Choir! Choir! Choir!”

The musicians’ contract with the opera company expired June 30. At issue is management’s contention the previous contract no longer reflects the company’s economic reality. Lyric Opera contends its diminishing audience can no longer support as many weeks of performances as in the past.

“It’s a national trend that opera performances are harder and more expensive to sell than they ever have been,” Freud said “We’re scheduling the maximum number of opera performances we believe we can sell.”

For this 64th season of Lyric Opera, The company has booked 55 performances for the current season. Ten years ago the Lyric was scheduling about 85 performances.

Opera officials say the company cannot agree to the terms the musicians demand given current financial circumstances. They say changes are necessary to ensure the opera company’s survival as a “world-class” opera company.

The musicians strike comes a day after the Lyric reached an agreement with stagehands, hair and makeup workers, and ticket sellers.

          An ongoing market trend that typically appears during global recessions could have a 'phenomenally painful' ending, the $603 billion investor Allianz says      Cache   Translate Page      

trader

  • The performance gap between US stocks and stocks elsewhere is at its highest level in several years.
  • Neil Dwane, a portfolio manager who is the global strategist at Allianz Global Investors, sees a binary outcome: It could be "phenomenally" painful or profitable for investors.
  • "At some point you're going to have to sell the winners," he told Business Insider.

Looking past the volatility of the past couple of days, the US stock market remains the clear global winner.

Strong earnings and economic growth have helped extend the bull market's lifespan into a record ninth year. US stocks now stand in sharp contrast to those elsewhere, which lost a tailwind of simultaneous economic growth this year and are underperforming the US in a way not seen since the 2008 crisis. The MSCI All-Country World Index excluding the US has shed 8% this year, while the S&P 500 has soared by the same amount.

The world's largest economies are no longer expanding in sync, but there's no global recession either. That's what makes US stocks' outperformance unusual and is why it could have a sour ending, according to Neil Dwane, a portfolio manager who is the global strategist at Allianz Global Investors, which manages 524 billion euros, or $603 billion, in assets.

"The question I'm increasingly asking my team is, 'Is the rest of the world going to recouple to the US?'" Dwane told Business Insider in a recent interview.

"Or at some point, is everyone going to look at the US and go, 'They need to recouple to the rest of the world — down?'" he added. "The more this divergence continues, it's either going to be phenomenally powerful to buy the losers because they're going to catch up, or it could be phenomenally painful because at some point you're going to have to sell the winners."

It's not unusual for there to be a gap between US stocks and emerging-market stocks, and these typically run in multiyear cycles.

Dwane highlighted a few reasons the gap this time could resolve with emerging markets catching up or US stocks falling.

Regarding possible US headwinds, he pointed to the strong dollar, which has gained about 4% this year against its G10 peers, making it more expensive for foreign companies and governments that have borrowed with dollars to meet their debt obligations. It's a risk the Bank of International Settlement has said could lead to "lower growth on average, including deeper and prolonged recessions."

"A leveraged world that has actually solved the debt crisis with more debt just increases the fragility that one sees around the rest of the world," Dwane said.

Dwane also noted that the US was further ahead than most countries with monetary tightening. "It's the US that has the extended cycle," he said. And even though interest rates remain low by historical standards, investors are betting — and worried — that the Federal Reserve will continue raising interest rates through 2020. Also, the US is also enjoying the "sugar high of Trump's fiscal policy" in the form of tax cuts, he said.

"The risks and the valuation are all against the US, and yet that's the only winner," he said.

As Dwane said, it's also possible that emerging-market performance catches up to US stocks. While he fell just short of making the specific recommendation to hunt for emerging-market assets, it's one that's being made across Wall Street, from the billionaire investor Jeremy Grantham to Merrill Lynch.

          Kanye West to meet Donald Trump      Cache   Translate Page      

[US], Oct 9 (ANI): Merely few days after Kanye West went on a pro-Trump rant on 'Saturday Night Live', the rapper is scheduled to meet with United States President Donald Trump.

West, who has faced backlash over his vocal support of Trump, will meet him and his senior advisor and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, at the White House on Thursday, according to The New York Times. They are expected to discuss manufacturing in West's native Chicago and job opportunities for former convicts.

Wearing a pro-president 'Make America Great Again' baseball cap, West delivered a pro-Trump speech on the premiere of the 44th season of 'Saturday Night Live'. Despite his speech not being aired, the 41-year-old received applauds from Trump.

The rapper recently went off social media apparently after he came under fire for supporting the US President.

Earlier this year, West's wife and reality television star, Kim Kardashian West, met Trump and about discussed about prison reform. (ANI)

Met this guy on the road coming across the Dartmore Forest in the fog one day.

Mathematicians have tried in vain to this day to discover some order in the sequence of prime numbers, and we have reason to believe that it is a mystery into which the human mind will never penetrate.
~Leonhard Euler




The 283rd day of the year; 283 is a twin prime. Also it can be expressed as powers of its digits, 283 = 25 + 81 + 35. (Curious students might seek the first multi-digit number for which this is possible)

283 can be expressed as nn + (n+1)n+1 (Find n!)

283 = (6! - 5! - 4! - 3! - 2! - 1! - 0!)/2.

283 is a prime of the form 4n+3, Bernard Frénicle de Bessy discovered that such primes cannot be the hypotenuse of a Pythagorean triangle (1676), as opposed to primes of the form 4n+1, which Fermat conjectured always were in 1640.


EVENTS


1580 Tycho observes a comet and follows it until November 25. and in the morning of December 13. He measured the distance to a comet and thereby demonstrated that comets were beyond the Moon. The Broadside from the British Museum was done about 1580, but was based on an earlier woodcut so it is probably not the comet that Tycho measured, (or perhaps any other actual comet). In January of the following year (still 1580 in England) a pamphlet of warning was written by "Francis Shakelton, minister and preacher of the worde of God":
"A blazyng starre or burnyng beacon, seene the 10. of October laste (and yet continewyng) set on fire by Gods prouidence, to call all sinners to earnest [and] speedie repentance."



1580 John Dee became one of the few commoners visited by Queen Elizabeth. Just hours after the death of his second wife the Queen and her entire privy council showed up at his door. Dee tried to entertain her using the "magical mirror" he had been given by William Pickering who had once been Elizabeth's suitor. The mirror, made of highly-polished obsidian (volcanic glass), was one of many Mexica cult objects and treasures brought to Europe after the conquest of Mexico by Cortés between 1527 and 1530. It is now in the British Museum. *Benjamin Wooley, The Queen's Conjuror

France would adopt system on Dec 10th of 1796. Can anyone verify a reason for this "traditional" date. although Dec 10 has a nice ring)

1844 Michael Faraday gets a scare. After a deadly explosion in a collary in Haswell, he was asked to participate in a commission to examine the incident. They examined the mine, and asked questions about air flow and other issues. Satisfied, Faraday's last series of Q & A went something like:

Faraday: Where do you store the dynamite?
A : "In a bag, tightly tied," was the reply.
Faraday: "Yes, but where do you keep the bag?"
A : "You are sitting on it."
They had apparently honored Faraday with the most comfortable cushion available. He supposedly jumped up quickly and admonished them for their carelessness, especially since the explanation about air flow included tests with an open flame candle. *The Correspondence of Michael Faraday, Volume 3: (There are many variations on this anecdote, one here that conflates the mine incident with events in court on the previous day)

In 1846, Neptune's moon, Triton, is discovered by William Lassell while he was observing the newly discovered planet Neptune. He was attempting to confirm his observation of the previous week, that Neptune had a ring. Instead he discovered that Neptune had a satellite, Triton. Lassell soon proved that the ring he thought he had seen was a product of his new telescope's distortion. This picture of Triton was taken in 1989 by the only spacecraft ever to pass Triton: Voyager 2, which found fascinating terrain, a thin atmosphere, and even evidence for ice volcanoes on this world of peculiar orbit and spin. Ironically, Voyager 2 also confirmed the existence of complete thin rings around Neptune - but these would have been quite invisible to Lassell! *TIS

1971 The rebuilt London Bridge was completed and dedicated in Arizona.   In 1831, New London Bridge had opened to traffic in London. In 1821, a committee was formed by Parliament to consider the poor condition of the existing centuries-old bridge. The arches had been badly damaged by the Great Freeze, so it was decided to build a new bridge. Building commenced under John Rennie in 1825, and completed in 1831, at the expense of the city. The bridge is composed of five arches, and built of Dartmoor granite. It was opened with great splendor by King William the fourth, accompanied by Queen Adelaide, and many of the members of the royal family, August 1st, 1831. In the 1960's it was auctioned and sold for $2,460,000 to Robert McCulloch who moved it to Havasu City, Arizona. The rebuilt London Bridge was completed and dedicated on 10 Oct 1971.*TIS

1986, a tiny asteroid, Asteroid 3753, was found orbiting the Earth - a body in addition to the Moon - by J. D. Waldron at Siding Spring Observatory. It was called Cruithne, (pronounced "Croo-een-ya") after Celtic tribes who came to Britain between about 880 and 500 BC. It is pulled alternately by the Sun and Earth. When viewed from the Earth, its 770-year orbit appears to be horseshoe shaped, but this is an effect of viewing an orbit from a rotating planet. It actually passes closer to the Earth than the Moon. At its closest approach it only gets to within about 15 million km (9 million miles) of our planet. Its diameter ranges between 2.9 - 6.4 km diameter wide. Cruithne will remain in a suspended state around Earth for at least 5,000 years. *TIS

In 2001, construction on the Viaduc de Millau (Millau Viaduct) began to bridge the River Tarn in Southern France. Finished in 38 months, it was opened 14 Dec 2004. The Millau Viaduct, designed by Sir Norman Foster, is the longest cable-stayed bridge in the world. Taller than the Eiffel Tower, the tallest pylon is 340m high, making it the world's highest road bridge. It carries the A75 motorway from Clermont-Ferraud south to Beziers, crosses 2.5-km and rises 270m above the valley. It was to replace the motor route through the town of Millau with continual traffic jams, shorten the journey by 100 km and save 4 hours of driving time. It was built using a steel deck, rather than concrete roadbed. *TIS



BIRTHS

Drawing of Cavendish torsion device *Yovisto
1731 Henry Cavendish (10 Oct 1731; 24 Feb 1810) English chemist and physicist who conducted experiments with diverse interests in his private laboratory. Most notably, he determined the mass and density of the Earth. He investigated the properties of hydrogen and carbon dioxide, including comparing their density to that of air. Cavendish also showed that water was a compound and measured the specific heat of various substances. His manuscripts (published 1879) revealed discoveries he made in electrostatics before Coulomb, Ohm and Faraday - including deducing the inverse square law of electrostatic attraction and repulsion. He also found specific inductive capacity. His family name is attached to the Cavendish Laboratory (founded 1871, funded by a later family member) at Cambridge University. *TIS Cavendish was supposedly so shy that for his only portrait the artist painted his coat from a hook in the hall, then painted Cavendish body from memory. *"Shock and Awe", BBC broadcast on the history of electricity)

1817 Christophorus Henricus Didericus Buys Ballot (10 Oct 1817; 3 Feb 1890) was a Dutch meteorologist who is remembered for his observation in 1857 that the wind blows at right angles to the atmospheric pressure gradient. He showed that northern hemisphere winds circulate counter-clockwise around low pressure areas and clockwise around high pressure areas. The reverse is true in the southern hemisphere. Although not the first to make this discovery, his name remains attached to it as Buys Ballot's law. He studied and taught at the University of Utrecht, and founded the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute in 1854. He was the inventor of the aeroklinoscope and of a system of weather signals.*TIS

1861 Heinrich Friedrich Karl Ludwig Burkhardt (10 Oct 1861, 2 Nov 1914) His main work was in analysis, particularly the theory of trigonometric series, and on the history of mathematics. Other topics on which Burkhardt published papers included groups, differential equations, differential geometry and mathematical physics.*SAU

1896 Lester Halbert Germer (10 Oct 1896; 10 Mar 1971) was a American physicist who, with his colleague Clinton Joseph Davisson, conducted an experiment (1927) that first demonstrated the wave properties of the electron. They showed that a beam of electrons scattered by a crystal produces a diffraction pattern characteristic of a wave. This experiment confirmed the hypothesis of Louis-Victor de Broglie, a founder of wave mechanics, that the electron should show the properties of an electromagnetic wave as well as a particle. He also studied thermionics, erosion of metals, and contact physics.*TIS

1919 William Henry Kruskal (October 10, 1919 – April 21, 2005) was an American mathematician and statistician. He is best known for having formulated the Kruskal–Wallis one-way analysis of variance (together with W. Allen Wallis), a widely-used nonparametric statistical method.
Kruskal was born in New York City to a successful fur wholesaler. His mother, Lillian Rose Vorhaus Kruskal Oppenheimer, became a noted promoter of Origami during the early era of television. She is credited with introduction the Japanese term "Origami" into the Enlish lexicon to replace the then common term, "paper folding". He was the oldest of five children, three of whom, including himself, became researchers in mathematics and physics; see Joseph Kruskal and Martin Kruskal. Kruskal left Antioch College to attend Harvard University, receiving Bachelor's and Master's degrees in mathematics in 1940 and 1941. He pursued a Ph. D. in Mathematical Sciences at Columbia University, graduating in 1955.
During the Second World War, Kruskal served at the U.S. Naval Proving Ground in Dahlgren, Virginia. After brief stints working for his father and lecturing at Columbia, he joined the University of Chicago faculty as an instructor in statistics in 1950. He edited the Annals of Mathematical Statistics from 1958 to 1961, served as president of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics in 1971, and of the American Statistical Association in 1982. Kruskal retired as Professor Emeritus in 1990. He died in Chicago.*Wik




DEATHS

1708 David Gregory (3 Jun 1659, 10 Oct 1708) Scottish mathematician and astronomer. In 1702 he published a book Astronomiae physicae et geometricae elementa, an effort in the popularization of Newtonian science. However, in the matter of chromatic aberration, Gregory noted something that Newton had missed. Different kinds of glass spread the colours of the spectrum by different amounts. He suggested a suitable combination of two different kinds of glass might eliminate chromatic aberration. (A half century later, Dollond accomplished this result.) Telescopes were a special interest of his, and Gregory also experimented with making an achromatic telescope. Gregory also did important work on series.*TIS

1925 Andrew Gray (2 July 1847, 10 Oct 1925) graduated from Glasgow University and was appointed assistant and secretary to Lord Kelvin. He became Professor of Physics at University College Bangor and then returned to Glasgow as Kelvin's successor. He produced many books and papers in both mathematics and physics.*SAU

1940 Vito Volterra (1860–1940) died in Rome. Best known for his early contributions to functional analysis: he introduced the concept of functional in 1887. He also gave an example of a function with a bounded derivative that is not Riemann integrable. He took a prominent role in public life, being President of the Accademia dei Lincei and also a Senator. When the Fascists’ came to power he opposed them and so lost his positions. Consequently his death was not announced in Italian newspapers. This had an ironic sequel: In October 1943 an SS detachment called at his house to arrest him and send him to a concentration camp. *VFR

1888 Sir Thomas Ralph Merton KBE, DSc, FRS (12 January 1888–10 October 1969) was an English physicist, inventor and art collector. He is particularly noted for his work on spectroscopy and diffraction gratings. Diffraction gratings were one of his lifelong interests and here his inventive genius best showed itself. The rarity and expense of good diffraction gratings led him to devise, in 1935, a method of copying them without loss of optical quality, by applying a thin layer of a cellulose ester solution to an original plane grating. When the solvent had evaporated he detached this pellicle and applied its grooved surface to a moist gelatine film on a glass plate. When dry, the gelatine bore a faithful record of the original rulings.
In 1948 Merton made an important basic advance in the art of ruling diffraction gratings. Since 1880 these had been ruled groove by groove by the method used by Rowlands. In place of this, Merton ruled a very fine helix continuously on a steel cylinder which he then opened out upon a plane gelatine-coated surface by his copying method. No lathe could, however, rule a helix free from errors of pitch and these Merton eliminated by an ingenious device. It consisted of a ‘chasing lathe’ by which he cut a secondary helix on the same cylinder with a tool mounted on a ‘nut’ lined with strips of cork pressed upon the primary lathe-cut helix. Periodic errors were thus averaged and eliminated by the elasticity of the cork.
In 1969 Merton bought Stubbings House, at Maidenhead Thicket, Berkshire. Its spacious rooms made an appropriate setting for his collection of pictures. As a man of considerable wealth, he maintained what was probably the last private physics laboratory in Britain. Papers and patents continued to appear, based on his researches there. In 1957 he had several serious operations and thereafter he rarely left his home, where he died on 10 October 1969.*Wik

1971 Sir Cyril Burt (3 Mar 1883, 10 Oct 1971) British psychologist who was a leader in developing methods of statistical data analysis, particularly factor analysis, in psychological testing. He investigated the role of heredity in intelligence with twin studies and the role of nuture in juvenile deliquency. In 1913, he was appointed thea school psychologist for the schools administered by the London County Council (LCC) This was the first appointment of this kind in the U.K. In 1926, he proposed a national testing program of intelligence tests on children at about age 11. Subsequently, the national "Eleven-Plus" exam was used to identify whether children were high scorers suitable for education at a grammar schools, or not. After Burt's death his later work on twins was questioned as flawed or fraud.*TIS

1975 Norman Levinson (August 11, 1912, Lynn, Massachusetts – October 10, 1975, Boston) was an American mathematician. Some of his major contributions were in the study of Fourier transforms, complex analysis, non-linear differential equations, number theory, and signal processing. He worked closely with Norbert Wiener in his early career. He joined the faculty of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1937. In 1954, he was awarded the Bôcher Memorial Prize of the American Mathematical Society. In 1974 he published a paper proving that more than a third of the zeros of the Riemann zeta function lie on the critical line, a result later improved to two fifths by Conrey.
He received both his bachelor's degree and his master's degree in electrical engineering from MIT in 1934, where he had studied under Norbert Wiener and took almost all of the graduate-level courses in mathematics. He received the MIT Redfield Proctor Traveling Fellowship to study at the University of Cambridge, with the assurance that MIT would reward him with a PhD upon his return regardless of whatever he produced at Cambridge. Within the first four months in Cambridge, he had already produced two papers. In 1935, MIT awarded him with the PhD in mathematics.
His death in 1975 was caused by a brain tumor.*Wik

1984 British geneticist Sir Alec Jeffreys discovered DNA fingerprinting on this date. He identified that every individual has a unique genetic code, so people could be identified by their genetic fingerprints. The technique has since helped to solve crime investigations and allowed the identification of family members in paternity cases. *rsc.org

2007 Karl Walter Gruenberg, (3 June 1928; 10 October 2007) Emeritus Professor of Pure Mathematics of Queen Mary, London University, was a much respected algebraist, being a leading light in the London algebra research community, with many professional contacts across the globe.
For his PhD he worked under Philip Hall, the UK's leading algebraist at the time, submitting a thesis in the theory of groups (a branch of algebra concerned with an abstract study of symmetry). He moved to Queen Mary College, London University, temporarily in 1953 and permanently in 1957. There Kurt Hirsch was slowly building up a world-class algebra research centre and Gruenberg rapidly became a leading member of this group.
Gruenberg remained at Queen Mary all his working life, apart from leaves of absence mostly taken at North American universities. He was made Professor in 1967, and was Head of the Pure Mathematics Department from 1973 until 1978.
After leaving Cambridge he continued his research in abstract group theory into the 1960s, becoming a leading expert at the time on the Engel theory of groups, which is concerned with extracting global information from certain types of local data.
From about 1960 or so, his main research interest moved into homological algebra and its applications, particularly to group theory. In mathematics, frequently unsuspected connections arise between quite separate and apparently unrelated areas. In this work Gruenberg was concerned with applying to group theory techniques originally developed for the "geometry of continuity". In this field he was a major, in many ways the major, pioneer. This work led him over the years towards representation theory, especially integral representation theory, and more latterly number theory. He published many research articles both singularly and jointly.
He was a talented and very successful teacher, especially of graduate students and his many innovative graduate courses were regularly attended by students, visitors and staff from Queen Mary and other London institutions. His books, Linear Geometry (1967, an undergraduate text written with Alan Weir), Cohomological Topics in Group Theory (1970) and Relation Modules of Finite Groups (1976), were all very well received. He continued his research to the end. He published a joint paper with Alfred Weiss in the Journal of Algebra in 2006, was working on further joint work with Weiss in the summer of 2007 both at Queen Mary and at the University of Alberta in Canada. He had been due to address the Queen Mary Pure Mathematics Seminar.* B.A.F. Wehrfritz Obituary in The Independent

So the year is coming to an end.  A hearty few came out two days before Thanksgiving to discuss adopting agile in the enterprise.  While Norm Murrin claimed to be nervous about talking in front of a group your wouldn’t have known by his presentation.  He really made a topic that has always been hard to relate very personal.  This lead to some great discussion.  I came out of looking for ways to investigate agile further.  His presentation can be found here.

This was our last meeting for the year.  We are looking forward to next year and are starting to line up some speakers and topics.  At this point we have an Azure presentation coming in February and are ironing out talks for January and March.  If your would like to join us and have topics you would like to see presented contact me through this blog.  Either leave a comment here or use the contact page.  I would love to hear from you.

A great idea....two years ago:
  • Once again focusing on Chicago crime, President Donald Trump on Monday said the city should implement a “stop and frisk” policy and get out of what he called a “terrible” agreement between the ACLU and the police department made after a study showed the stops targeted minorities.

    Trump, speaking to the International Association of Chiefs of Police in Orlando, also said he was instructing Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “immediately” go to Chicago.

    The Chicago Sun-Times has learned the Justice Department will have announcements on Chicago later this week.
Unless the announcements involve have Rahm, Toni, Kimmy, Timmy or Tommy being tried in the public square and hanged for our watching pleasure, we aren't seeing much change. Almost no one is being stopped. Morale is lower than low. Shootings are down but clearance rates hover in the single digits and property crime is rising.

The prosecuting attorney asked JVD at trial something along the lines of, "Sothis all could have been avoided if you stayed in the car? Dow do you think that is going to play in the Districts?

  • A kayaker fishing for salmon off Waukegan Harbor on Monday morning found an unexpected animal in the water — a 4-foot-long American alligator.

    Chicago resident David Castaneda had been paddling for about four hours when around 9:30 a.m. he saw something floating in the water, he said. Thinking it was a dead salmon, he went closer to check.

    Instead, he saw an alligator head, Castaneda said.

    “I went closer to see if it was real,” he said. “I was just in shock. I wasn’t sure if it was a real alligator or a toy.”

    Castaneda called 911 to report the alligator, and Waukegan’s Animal Control responded.

    The animal, which had its mouth taped shut, “was definitely on borrowed time,” said Rob Carmichael, curator for the Wildlife Discovery Center in Lake Forest, where the alligator is being taken.

  • A toddler fatally shot Saturday night in the Hermosa neighborhood on the Northwest Side has the grim distinction of being the youngest person to be killed by gun violence in the city this year.

    At 10:17 p.m., 2-year-old Julien Gonzalez and an 18-year-old man were standing near an alley in the 2200 block of North Kilbourn Avenue when shots were fired from the street’s end, according to Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

    Just before the shooting, two females were fighting in the alley between Kilbourn and Kenneth avenues when the shots were fired in their direction, police said.
Remember, police are the problem.

UPDATE: A protest.

          Here's Why I Love Iran — Even When My Country Sees It as an Enemy      Cache   Translate Page      
Wondering about American indifference about the war we're ramping up for has had me thinking about why I love Iran.

I was living in Harlem.

It was a few weeks after 9/11 and when Mahsa rang and let me know that she would be in New York, I was happy and excited.

Her brother and I had been friends for over ten years.

We always said our meeting was destined.

As the only two kids of color—I am Black American and he is Persian—in an otherwise all-white Women in Religion class at DePaul University, something in my heart knew he would be my friend for life. I’ll never forget the look of agony in his big blue eyes when after opening the door to that crammed classroom he encountered a sea a white faces looking back at him, no one budging to indicate they would make room as he courageously closed the door behind him, turned and bared the stark gaze of the tall, lanky, pasty professor with the thick Eastern European accent, intensifying the mood with “Why don’t we wait to continue since some of us don’t know how to get to here on time.”

Somehow in that moment, our eyes locked and I hurriedly moved my bag and beckoned him to come sit next to me. Shaun made his way through the sea of kids, barely letting him through the tight aisles. By the time he sat down, sweat trickling from his brow, he was relieved and I was relieved for him and we both laughed under our breath. When he rifled through his bag looking for a pen and couldn’t find one—another long pause from our professor—we both laughed again as I handed him one of mine.

We become one in that moment, representing a warm cocoon of support to protect us through the white supremacist death by a thousand cuts that can choke and kill with its vicious silences and pauses that wither you from the inside out and have no balm but the knowing, empathetic understanding that laughter and friendship can heal.

Even though he was born in Iran, I here in America, we had many things in common. He was organized into his understanding of Whiteness in Wilmette and I got my credentials in Fairfield, Connecticut. Different places, same stuff. Our families were the only people of color in extremely affluent communities and the day to day experiences, that remind you every day of how alien and unlovable you are, would leave their mark on our psyches, well after we’d graduated high school and found one another in that classroom at DePaul University.

Getting together was healing. He and his cousins became fixtures at my house whenever there were barbeques, family get-togethers and parties. When I met Shaun I didn’t know much about Persian history and culture, just what I remembered from what became known as the “hostage crisis,” and the Shah of Iran, years before.

I was eight years old when a group of Iranian college students shut down a building in a place called Tehran. They were holding fifty or so Americans inside the embassy and wouldn’t release them until their demands were met. My mother said the students were standing up for themselves because America was “doing them like they do us” and “they know how it is.” My mom and the Iranian kids seemed to be on the same page because at some point, soon after the “crisis” began, the students released the women and the Black Americans, let them walk right out of the embassy. It made so much sense and I was so impressed with the reasonableness of their actions. “Women hold a special place in our society and Blacks live under American oppression and tyranny.”

Even though the white broadcasters tried to reduce the gesture to a publicity stunt, watching those people march out of the building, the women coming home to their children and the Black Brothers with their afros, coming home to their families, after that the students had my vote. And I got the message, for the first time in my life, that Black people in America had something in common with Black people and other people of color, all over the world.

We were one.

The students knew it. They said it for everyone to hear and now I knew it too.

Hanging out with Shaun reminded me of that. We had good times together and my mom and dad adored him, treated him like he was one of their own. We danced, partied, ate as much barbeque as we could hold, had great cocktails and just enjoyed life together. My parents taught him how to play Bid Whist, Black folk’s version of Bridge. Going to Shaun’s place, either his parents' house out in Wilmette or his apartment down the street from our place in Lincoln Park, was just the same. Just good times. When he cooked, my gosh, the food was magnificent! Well-seasoned meats with fresh, delicious herbs, perfectly cooked fluffy rice with these gorgeous, aromatic dips and sauces. The art on his walls was impeccable and the energy in his apartment was always flowing. Like my family, Shaun was hospitable, caring, a lovely conversationalist and knew how to have a good time, and he cared about people.

We had so many things in common.

So of course, years later when his baby sister Mahsa came to New York, I was excited to host.

She arrived, smartly dressed like a low-key, genius poet in her well-tailored men’s sports jacket, a black turtleneck, jeans and expensive but understated loafers. Mahsa had always been elegant and gorgeous. We walked down to People’s Choice, the most delicious homemade Jamaican food in New York City. I think we got oxtails with peas and rice and cabbage. Neither one of us could get over how extraordinarily delicious the food was. We ate and we talked about her work and mine. We’d all since left Chicago, years ago. Shaun to Los Angeles, me to New York City and Mahsa to Tehran. She’d done a women’s magazine, Bad Jens, and had become a serious organizer of community over there. On this trip she was working at the UN with Shirin Ebadi, doing translation work for her papers, books and speeches. Even though Mahsa was really humble about it, which was her way, I knew from her proud brother that her work with Shirin Ebadi was a really big deal.

Since 9/11 had just gone down, and Bush was pushing us to go to war with Iraq, I took the opportunity to make sense of all that had happened in that part of the world. “Why are we always fighting and complaining about Iraq and Iran?” I asked as we chomped away. “And what’s the deal with Afghanistan?” I admitted to her something that I had hidden from myself, that even though I was pretty active in international situations that impacted Black people and people of color globally, Haiti, South Africa, Venezuela, that I knew very little about the Middle East. It just became something that was always already happening… so ongoing that I just tuned out. Mahsa was one of those people, that even though she was crazy smart, brilliant really, you didn’t have to pretend that you knew something that you did not.

She explained about the oil. She explained about the pipelines. She explained the grip of American imperialism, the destruction of the cities of Middle Eastern antiquity and the pillaging of museums and libraries by American armed forces throughout the years and the slow, steady march to Iraq that the U.S. was directing to Iran. That seemed outlandish to me, that Iran would ever be treated in that fashion. When she started talking about the incessant bombing, the destruction of Beirut came up and I informed her that back in the early '80s, Black folks likened the most cracked-out, left behind areas of our own communities to this city, “South Side of Chicago lookin’ like Beirut,” I’d hear brothers and sisters say.

Mahsa shook her head and smiled slightly and then gave me a glimpse of the history of the beauty and majesty of this gorgeous Lebanese city. She was clearly disturbed by the information, but her gentle, non-judgmental telling of these things, in a tone demonstrative of patience and inner peace, her deep intellect and elegance, amplified a sense of what Americans did not know or like to think about, that ours was a young, foolish country… a big, ignorant, bully baby and that we had lost our way. Completely. Most of us unaware of what was really happening in our names, and for oil, imperialism and what Bush kept calling “our way of life,” around the world, especially in the Middle East, with people, who like my mother’d said all those years ago “know how it is.”

We do not like to even consider what we have destroyed and in that destruction what has been lost, forever, to the world. What we have lost is friendship, culture, love, peace, endless possibilities and all of the wonderful things that come from life when you are trying to crush, kill, and control. Somewhere along the way, in a quest for assimilation, peace and acceptance, and just probably worn downness, Black Americans forgot too, that we have something in common with our brothers and sisters in the Middle East. The greatest blow from the War Economy is that it separates us. Eventually, it separated Shaun and I… understandably. After all, it is difficult to maintain friendships with folks when your country makes habit of lying, stealing, cheating, murdering and spreading hate, making their lives here and back home, a misery.

America was and still is running around, destructively taking… snatching things... from people, with whom Black folks, Native people, LatinX in the land known as the United States have something in common.

As I look at the bombed-out streets of the countries that the United States has attacked, and ripped apart, dusty, dirt heaps where gardens used to grow, I have to look at my own communities, here in the United States. Areas with no green spaces or parks and the prisons swollen with human energy relegated to slavery. Flint, Michigan, with no drinkable water source, Deep East Oakland with nowhere to buy living foods and soil so destroyed by pollution that you can’t grow any… children climbing out of tents in homeless encampments in downtown Oakland, while tech millionaires look down on them from their sprawling condo apartment windows. The United States is waging the same war on the people of the Middle East, that it is waging here on Black folks, LatinX, Indigenous people and poor Whites, here in our local communities.

This truth takes me back to that look on Mahsa’s face when she told me of the beauty of precious Beirut and the pure glory of what stood there before the dust and the rubble.

I have always had the sense that being reminded of what we have in common, (in addition to being targeted by the most destructive force on the planet… the American government…) would create a solidarity that could truly organize peace on its own, between the people most heavily enslaved, marginalized and victimized by the virus of War Economy which spreads by keeping us fearful of one another and separates us. I have always had the sense that if the Black and LatinX children on the South Side of Chicago understood that the bullets flying by and through their heads and the food deserts in which they reside are a construction of the engineers of the War Economy, which inflict death upon all that they cannot control, as they do today to the children of Yemen and Afghanistan, and God forbid, Iran, that they would have a different sense of their possibilities and self-worth in the world. I have always had the sense that if we remembered what the Iranian students were really saying and doing when they released the folks who “suffered under American oppression and tyranny,” just like they did… that we would all be unstoppable… together… because knowing that we all have something in common is the first step towards growing and sustaining a local peace economy.

The good news is that we get a chance to start again, everytime we open our eyes and begin a new day.

When I tell people that our government is ramping up to a war with Iran, a glaze comes over their eyes. It’s like yelling fire in a crowded theater but nobody moves because they’re too busy enjoying their buttered popcorn and watching the movie… so you have to start explaining that fire not only burns… but it can kill you.

Get up and run!

Are we that used to waging war in America that no one even bats an eye?

Or is it because Iran is this faraway place where they’re not like us... and practice a different religion… have different values… a place where the people have nothing in common with us? This glaze over the eyes thing has happened so much that I have to wonder what has happened in my life that makes me understand that loving the Iranian people is as natural as loving my own people... as natural as knowing that they are my people.

Wondering why my fellow countrymen and women do not connect in the same way has shaken me up a little… a lot... and had me thinking about why I love Iran.

I want to dedicate this piece to Mahsa Shekarloo, who left our world on September 5, 2014. May all the girls and women, around the world and especially Iran… Persia, know that she organized, loved and sacrificed so that they could be free. And to her dear brother, Arash, aka Shaun, who is my friend… for life.

Co-produced with SMU Meadows School of the Arts' Ignite/Arts Dallas, Cara Mía Theatre Co. is proud to launch the first national tour of WET: A DACAmented Journey in Dallas and the company's second national tour.

The Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle hailed this acclaimed solo show, written and performed by Alex Alpharaoh, as the Best Solo Performance of 2018. Co-commissioned by Cara Mía Theatre, Ignite/Arts Dallas, and ArtsEmerson in Boston, the touring version of WET: A DACAmented Journey will travel through Dallas, Austin, Chicago, Denton, West Hartford, CT and close for a three-week run at ArtsEmerson in Boston.

"I've lived my entire life in the shadows, where it was cold, lonely, and dark," says writer and performer Alex Alpharaoh. "I speak for those who cannot, who are too afraid, who have a language barrier, who are tired, and feel defeated, like I tend to feel on my worst days. I speak because at any day, they can end DACA and I can be right back to square zero, but before that happens, I'm going to make sure you hear me."

"Alex's personal story is full of courage, humor and vulnerability," says Executive Artistic Director David Lozano. "WET reveals how the current turmoil in the immigration system threatens to keep extraordinary individuals like Alex away from the country they have always called home. WET is a roller coaster ride that entertains but brings the audience to the undeniable truth that DACAmented Americans living in the US today need our help now more than ever."

WET: A DACAmented Journey is a true story of what it means to be an American in every sense of the word except one: on paper. Written and performed by Alex Alpharaoh, this show chronicles his ongoing struggles and the fight to remain in the only home he has ever known, the United States. WET captures one man's relentless journey toward becoming a documented citizen.

"Alpharaoh's 90-minute solo performance is a singularly moving chronicle of the threat posed by the election of Donald Trump to the country's 750,000 young immigrants called DREAMers. It's a stirring autobiographical account of personal heroism in the face of everyday bigotry that is an act of courage in itself." - LA Weekly

"Word of his harrowing play has spread thanks partly to the attendance of people who don't usually show up at local 50-seat theaters: Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank), the district director for Rep. Judy Chu (D-Monterey Park) and representatives from the American Civil Liberties Union and Human Rights Watch." - Los Angeles Times

"Not only is the subject important, but the show itself is gripping and exciting, and also rich in humanity and funny..." -- Neal Weaver, Stage Raw/August 2017

"Significant and compelling…engaging" - Deborah Klugman

          Session: Pandemic:: Pandemic - A Solo Play-Through      Cache   Translate Page      

by The Solo Meeple

I thought it would be interesting to post a solo play-through, one where I try to portray what I'm thinking and why I make the moves I do. I chose Pandemic as it's a great gateway game, and one that people new to the hobby are likely to play.

I'll be typing things up as I play, and will try to get across what moves I'm considering and their pro's and con's.

I have no ideas how it will turn out, but there are strategies that will increase the chances of winning the game, and I have elected to play with three characters - four and the game is a little easier - two and it's a fair bit harder. I find three a good challenge.

Probably the best way of following along is to open up the map images I have placed at the start of each round (a turn with each character). I apologies for the image quality, the room I played in has red walls, and the flash bounce caused a few issues.

Set-up

I shuffled the role cards together and drew three - the medic, researcher, and the quarantine specialist.

The medic is possibly one of the most useful characters; removing all cubes of one colour when carrying out a 'treat disease' action, as well as removing all cubes of cured diseases from the city he is in. He is my favourite character to play and I'm happy he's turned up.

The researcher is handy; when carrying out share knowledge may give any 1 of her city cards. Likewise any player sharing knowledge with her may take any 1-city card from her hand. The only issue with the researcher is that you have to keep them close to your other characters to make them most effective. Either that, or they need to be able to jump around, expending city cards to do so. They are at their best when you have the dispatcher character, who can move them around to share cards.

Finally, the quarantine specialist - Prevent disease cube placement in the city you are in and all connected cities. She can be a very useful character to play, but needs handling correctly. It is so easy to get her tied up to one city, there is a knack at getting the most from her; we shall see if I have it!

They were dealt the following city cards:

Medic

• Blue - Madrid
• Red - Jakarta
• Yellow - Bogota

Researcher

• Red - Sydney
• Red - Hong Kong
• Black - Cairo

Quarantine specialist

• Red - Osaka
• Blue - London
• Yellow - Los Angeles

On the whole not a bad selection, especially with the researcher; she may be able to pass her two red cards to the Medic or Quarantine Specialist.


Here's how things stack up at the start.

Initial city infection.

3 Cubes

Blue - Milan
Yellow - Bogota
Yellow - Mexico City
Not a good start - Bogota and Mexico City are adjacent, and could cause problems later on, we shall see what else comes out.

2 Cubes


• Red - Shanghai
• Black - Chennai
• Yellow - Los Angeles

It was going okay until LA came out, that's right next to Mexico City, so I have to be very wary of game breaking multiple outbreaks.

1 Cube

• Red - Beijing
• Black - Baghdad
• Yellow - Kinshasa

No real issues there other than another yellow cube used; that's 9 out of the 24.

I've elected to play a standard game, 5 epidemics, and have set the board up as per the instructions, only with one slight deviation - the rules state that the player deck should be divided into five piles of roughly the same size, and an epidemic card shuffled into each one. The piles are then stacked on top of each other, smallest first. However, I have done what the majority of people seem to do - I dealt them out so that 4 piles hold 9 cards and the last one 8; then shuffled in the epidemic cards and stacked the deck.

This means that I can expect an epidemic card once in every 10 cards - something worth remembering.

Why did I choose to do this? Mainly because it highlights the use of card counting, something you may, or may not, want to do - but it does give you a slight advantage knowing the odds; knowing when it's worth taking a risk or having to play safe.

I also wanted to slightly increase my chances of winning, purely for the sake of the play-through, and would normally divide the cards up as per the rulebook, as it does add that slight bit more uncertainty to the game.


This is how things stand after the initial infection phase.

Round 1

The Medic has Jakarta, with the largest population, and so will go first. I have to decide whether to share knowledge with the Researcher first, or try to clear the yellow cubes from Bogota, Mexico City, and Los Angeles.

It will take two actions to get to either Mexico or Bogota, and another to treat the disease. My last action would then be used to move me to the other infected city, so I may as well share knowledge with the researcher, taking Sydney from her, then moving to Mexico via Miami. My last action with the Medic is to treat the yellow disease in Mexico, removing all the cubes.

I decided on moving and treating Mexico, rather than Bogota, simple to split the infected cities up. If I had decided on Bogota instead, and I drew an epidemic card, there was always the chance of  infecting Mexico City, causing an outbreak and placing a third cube in LA. If the next card up is then LA...!

Note: - Someone new to the game may be tempted to try and give the red cards held by the Medic and Quarantine Specialist to the researcher, as she already has two, but this requires trying to get them together in the same location as the card they wish to pass. The researcher's strength lies in the fact she can give away any city card - use it!


Medic city draw


• Red - Beijing
• Yellow - Buenos Aires

Good, another red, that gives me options with the Researcher.

Medic infection draw

• Blue - St. Petersburg
• Red - Osaka

Researcher

With the Medic drawing another red city card it's obvious that she needs to stay close to him. She hasn't got anything useful to give to the Quarantine Specialist so she may as well move towards the Medic. She moves to Miami and on to Mexico, and shares knowledge with the Medic, giving him Hong Kong, which makes four red for the Medic. With her last action she moves to LA.

She could have moved to Bogota with that last action, but at the moment I want the Quarantine Specialist to move there. My thinking here is that the Medic will move through LA to San Francisco, and then across the water to Tokyo. I will have the Researcher follow, aiming to move them through to the Black and Blue areas of the board, on the way hopefully curing the red disease and possibly eradicating it. But for that I will need to build another research station somewhere.

Researcher city draw

• Red - Taipei
• Black - Mumbai

Excellent, another red, the Medic can pick that up as he moves through LA.

Researcher infection draw

• Red - Manila
• Black - Moscow

Pity about the red cube; I was hoping that if one were to appear, it would be in close proximity to the others, so they could be easily swept up.

Quarantine specialist

At the moment there's nowhere in particular she can put her skill to good effect, other than staying around Mexico City. There is the option of trying to get both the yellow city cards from the Medic - Bogota and Buenos Aires - and I definitely think one is possible if nothing else comes along that is more urgent. So, She moves via Miami to Bogota, and treats disease twice, removing two cubes.

This prevents cubes from being placed here, and the adjoining cities. The medic can, after a brief visit to LA, move back to Bogota ready to share knowledge if I decide on that plan of action. Flexibility - keeping your options open and being able to react to whatever infection cards come out - or an epidemic.

Quarantine Specialist city draw

• Red - Tokyo
• Epidemic! - Infection rate moves along one, still a 2 though. Khartoum is drawn and 3 yellow cubes placed there. The infection discard pile is shuffled and placed on top of the draw pile.

The draw of another red city just gives me options to use the direct flight action, which may come in handy later. With the draw of the epidemic card I'm glad I have the Quarantine Specialist where she is, let's see what comes out.

Quarantine Specialist infection draw

• Yellow - Khartoum
• Yellow - Kinshasa

Not good! Khartoum causes an outbreak - the outbreak marker is moved to 1, and a cube is placed in Cairo, Lagos, Kinshasa, and Johannesburg. Unfortunately Kinshasa was drawn next, giving me 3 cubes there too!

Getting an epidemic early on can cause problems, as the infection discard pile is small you know that there's a good chance of something coming out you've yet to clear, causing an outbreak. At least there is plenty of time now until the next epidemic card comes out, so I need to get either the Medic, or the Quarantine specialist to this area soon. (The epidemic was the sixth card drawn, so I've at least two turns of grace before there is a chance of another.)

At the end of the first round things aren't too bad. I'm on the verge of curing the red disease already, but do have issues with yellow. I know that there are going to be another three infections coming out in quick succession - LA, Mexico City, and Bogota, so I need to keep an eye on how many yellow cubes are available, but I'm not too worried... yet!

Round 2


How things stand at the start of round 2.
Future Meeple - The outbreak marker in the picture should be at 1; I notice my error a little later!


Medic

I now decide that the best thing for the medic would be to head to Africa and clear the cubes there, but it will take a couple of turns. I'm not going to worry about getting Taipei from the researcher, she can bring it to the medic. I can, however, drop of Bogota with the Quarantine specialist. So, the medic moves from Mexico to Bogota, shares knowledge, giving Bogota to the Quarantine Specialist. He then moves to Lagos via Sao Paulo.

I could have cured a yellow cube at Bogota and then finished the move at Buenos Aires, ready to give that city card to the Quarantine specialist on their turn, but I figured that could be done later, as I really want to get rid of some of these yellow cubes in Africa.

Medic city draw

• Event - Government Grant - Add 1 research station to any city (No city card needed).
• Blue - Washington

I played the Event card as soon as I drew it, knowing exactly where I would like it - Baghdad!

I placed the station in Baghdad as it occupies a vital position on the board  - being central and having five cities linked to it. if you get an outbreak here it can really ruin your day, as can a number of other similarly located cities. I could have placed it closer to the Medic, enabling him to discover a cure, but it's often better to have a station in a more central location.

Medic infection draw

• Yellow - Los Angeles
• Red - Shanghai

That's okay, as the Researcher is still in LA and she could remove a cube before moving towards the Medic. Shanghai isn't so good, I'm getting too many cities that have 3 cubes on them, and Shanghai is in the opposite direction to where I want to go, typical!

Researcher

I now have a decision to make. My original plan was for the researcher to follow the Medic into Africa, and pass the last card he needs to discover a cure for the red disease. But, with Shanghai now on 3 red cubes, have my priorities changed? I decide to move her to join the Medic - Mexico City - Bogota - Sao Paulo - Lagos. I leave the 3 cubes in LA for the Quarantine Specialist to deal with.

I made the decision base upon the chances of an epidemic card coming out on the next turn. As we have drawn eight cards so far, one of which was an epidemic, there should be at least one more turn before there is a chance of hitting another epidemic card. (remember, one epidemic card in every ten cards). So, I have a reasonable chance of positioning the Quarantine Specialist in an ideal spot, as well as clearing some more yellow cubes.

Researcher city draw

• Blue - Chicago
• Blue - New York

This is a good draw for me as the Medic already has two blue cards, and as the researcher has followed the Medic, it should just take a little luck to cure both blue and red over the next few turns.

Researcher infection draw

• Black - Moscow
• Black - Baghdad

Nothing to worry about at the moment, just got to keep an eye on them.

Quarantine Specialist

Easy decision here. She moves to LA via Mexico, treats disease removing a yellow cube, and then retreats back to Mexico.

Why didn't I treat disease twice in LA? There is a chance of an epidemic card coming out, and placing her in Mexico stops cubes being placed in the three areas that have previously been infected. Just cube limitation really!

Quarantine Specialist city draw

• Event - Forecast - Draw, Look at, and rearrange the top six cards of the infection deck. Put them back on top.
• Blue - Montreal

The Forecast event is a useful one, the difficulty is timing it just right. I could use it now, especially as there is a chance that Milan could outbreak this turn, but the other three cities containing 3 cubes are all in the discard pile, so it would be a waste using it at this point.

Another Blue card is handy, as that makes six cards, two apiece; it's just a matter of getting them in one place!

Quarantine Specialist infection draw

• Red - Beijing
• Red - Osaka

The reds are starting to build up, but it shouldn't be too long before I can start dispersing them.

Round 3


Characters and cards for round 3.



Positions at the start of round 3.
Future Meeple - Still haven't noticed my mistake - Outbreak marker should be on 1!


Medic

First things first - Share knowledge with the researcher, taking Taipei to complete the  set of five red cards required to treat the disease. This gives the Medic eight cards, so he needs to discard one, and throws Washington into the discard pile.

Having only three actions left it isn't possible to reach the research station, and cure the disease this turn. So may as well make full use of the three actions - Move to Kinshasa and treat disease, removing 3 yellow cubes. Then move to Khartoum with the final action.

I could have gone to Khartoum after sharing knowledge with the Researcher, treated disease there, and then either moved to Kinshasa or to Cairo. I did consider the Cairo option, as this would have left me closer to the research station, but would have resulted in the researcher wasting moves to deal with Kinshasa. If  the Medic had finished in Kinshasa, then either the Researcher would have had to pass through to treat disease there, or the medic would have had to do it next turn, leaving him with not enough actions to discover a cure the following turn. I discarded Washington, as there were six blue cards between the characters, and kept the yellow card as we have only three of them.

Medic city draw

• Blue - St. Petersburg
• Yellow - Johannesburg

Having seven cards already I discarded both St. Petersburg and Johannesburg. I did consider throwing Madrid instead of Johannesburg, as that would have given me four of each of the two colours in the hands, but decided not to. Time will tell if it was the right decision.

Medic infection draw

• Blue - St. Petersburg
• Red - Manila

Not to worried about Manila, but St. Petersburg is a concern - Milan is going to be one of the next five cards out by my reckoning, along with Chennai, Johannesburg, Bogota, and Mexico City, all of which have been infected previous to the last epidemic, but haven't been drawn again yet.

Researcher

The Researcher can't get to Milan and treat disease, unless she uses a direct flight to Cairo, discarding that card, and then moving through Istanbul to Milan. This would prevent an outbreak if Milan were to be drawn this turn, and is worth considering. She could also move to join the Quarantine Specialist in Mexico City, and have enough actions to share knowledge, giving her a blue card. It is the latter of these that she does - Sao Paulo - Bogota - Mexico City - Share knowledge, giving the Quarantine Specialist New York. The Specialist, now with eight cards, discards Tokyo.

This may appear to be the wrong thing to do but, having had only one outbreak so far, I'm happy to sacrifice another, especially as the Medic is in close proximity. The move I made gives the Quarantine Specialist 3 blue cards, plus on her turn she will share knowledge again, taking a fourth one from the Researcher. If the researcher is lucky enough to draw another blue this turn, then that will give me all five!

Researcher city draw

• Red - Bangkok
• Blue - Milan

The good news is another blue card - Milan. Bangkok will enable her to whip across the board next turn if needed, without getting rid of a useful card - The red disease should be cured by then.

Researcher infection draw

• Yellow - Bogota
• Blue - Milan

No cube is placed in Bogota as it is adjoined to Mexico City, where the Quarantine Specialist is. However, Milan inevitably causes an outbreak - the outbreak marker is moved to 2, and blue cubes are placed in Essen, Paris, and Istanbul.

Future Meeple - At last I finally noticed that the outbreak marker hadn't moved on and placed it straight on two... Well done me!

Quarantine Specialist

She shares knowledge twice with the Researcher, receiving Chicago and Milan. She has to discard two cards due to hand limit; Osaka is one, an obvious choice, but unfortunately the other has to be a yellow card, which is going to be LA. She now has two actions left, and as there isn't anywhere else she can get to that would prove useful, she moves to the research station at Atlanta.

She now has five blue cards - enough to cure the disease. It was a shame to discard a yellow, but it was either that or the event card, and that will be needed when the next epidemic comes out. I was happy to move away from Mexico now that both LA and Bogota have been drawn, it doesn't cause any issues if Mexico comes out on the draw.

Quarantine Specialist city draw

• Yellow - Miami
• Event - Resilient Population - Remove any 1 card in the infection discard pile from the game.

As she already has seven cards Miami gets discarded straight away. The event on the other hand can be used as it's discarded (had to double check that on BGG, but yes it can). So, looking through the infection discard pile, I decide to remove Shanghai from the game.

I remove Shanghai because a) it has 3 cubes on it, b) it infects 5 other cities if it outbreaks, more than any of the others in a similar position, and c) the Medic can't get there next go, so it would be on the researcher to get there needed.

Quarantine Specialist infection draw

• Yellow - Mexico City
• Black - Chennai

Not worried about Mexico, having reduced the number of yellow cubes on the board, but Chennai is now on 3 so will need to keep an eye on that area of the board.

Round 4





I've had a total of nine turns, which means eighteen cards have been drawn, it has to be an epidemic next go... If my maths is correct!

Medic

Okay, the Medic first treats disease in Khartoum, removing the 3 yellow cubes. Then moves to Baghdad, via Cairo. As there is a research station here, he discovers a cure with his last action, discarding the five red cards from his hand - One down!

I did look over the possibilities of treating a greater number of diseases, but the most I could do was one city with 3 cubes on it, which is what I did anyway. I could have removed a few individual cubes instead of moving to discover a cure, but lets face it, the aim of the game is to discover all the cures!

Medic city draw

• Epidemic - The infection marker is moved along one, which fortunately is still a 2; Kolkata is drawn from the bottom of the infection deck and 3 black cubes placed there. The infection discard pile is shuffled and placed back on top of the draw pile.
• Yellow - Khartoum

Having 3 cubes on Kolkata isn't great as it's connected to Chennai, also on 3.

It's now time for the Quarantine Specialist to play her Forecast Event - Drawing and looking at the top 6 cards of the infection deck. I put them in them in the order that I want them to come out in.

• Yellow - Khartoum (0 cubes)
• Yellow - Kinshasa (0 cubes)
• Yellow - Bogota (1 cube)
• Yellow - Mexico City (1 cube)
• Blue - Milan (3 cubes)
• Black - Chennai (3 cubes)

This gives me two more turns after the Medic has made his infection draw, to clear cubes from Milan and Chennai, difficult to do both, but maybe not impossible!

Medic infection draw

• Yellow - Khartoum
• Yellow - Kinshasa

There are going to be a lot of yellow cubes scattered around the board, so I will need to keep an eye on how many are left in the pot!

Researcher

The Researcher has no cards useful to the others at the moment, but she does hold Bangkok, which is a godsend - This will enable her to get across the board and clear out the troublesome black cubes.

First she treats disease in Mexico City, removing the 1 cube there. Then she takes a direct flight to Bangkok, discarding that card. She moves from Bangkok to Chennai, treating disease to reduce it down to 2 cubes.

I could have neglected Mexico to treat disease twice in Chennai, but I know that Mexico City is coming out next draw, so I determined it would be better to leave fewer cubes in that area.

Researcher city draw

• Black - Istanbul
• Red - Seoul

She now holds three black cards, which is good, and Seoul, which could be used to get her over to Shanghai and treat disease there.

Researcher infection draw

• Yellow - Bogota
• Yellow - Mexico City

No major dramas there, other than using up yellow cubes - but still plenty in the pot at the moment.

Quarantine Specialist

I know that Milan is going to come out of the infection deck this turn. Unless I draw an epidemic that is. So I need to protect it, which the Quarantine Specialist can do. So, first she discovers a cure for blue as she's at the Atlanta research station. Then she takes a shuttle flight to the other research station in Baghdad. From there she move to Istanbul, and then to Milan. Job done!

This is the Quarantine Specialist at her best - when you need to stop an outbreak, but don't have enough actions to remove cubes. She basically provides you with a free action - in this case I discovered a cure for blue - which if using another character, I wouldn't have been able to do as I would have had to treat disease in Milan.

Quarantine Specialist city draw

• Epidemic! - Increase the infection rate marker (now on 3); Sao Paulo (yellow) is drawn from the bottom of the deck, and has 3 cubes placed upon it; shuffle the discard pile and place it back on top.
• Black - Moscow

Ouch! Anything but another yellow! Sao Paulo is connected to Bogota, on 2 cubes, if that is drawn first then there will be the potential for multiple outbreaks. Nothing I can do now but watch what comes out of the draw.

This highlights exactly what Pandemic is all about, juggling! There are many ways to lose the game - too many outbreaks, running out of city cards, running out of cubes - you have to keep an eye on everything. And then, when you get a scattering of cities, all on 3 cubes, which are too far apart from each other to deal with easily - it really becomes a challenge!

Quarantine Specialist infection draw (now increased to three cards)

• Yellow - Khartoum
• Yellow - Mexico City
• Yellow - Sao Paulo - Outbreak - Move the outbreak marker to 3 and place a cube in Buenos Aires, Bogota, Lagos, and Madrid.

It's not making things easy for me; that's 5 cities on 3 cubes, and only 5 yellow cubes remaining - best get some mopping up done!

Round 5





Medic

I need to regain some yellow cubes; I also know that Bogota is still in the infection deck, so I'd like to clear that if I can. So, The Medic takes a shuttle to Atlanta, then moves to Miami, and finally to Bogota. With his last action he treats disease removing the 3 yellow cubes.

I could have treated disease in Cairo and Khartoum, also removing a total of 3 yellow cubes, but Bogota is joined to Sao Paulo, also on 3 cubes. So an outbreak in Bogota would also have caused an outbreak in Sao Paulo. The Quarantine Specialist has Milan covered, which only leaves Shanghai and Kolkata as an issue at the moment. And, as I almost forgot, Shanghai has been removed from the deck with an event card.

Medic city draw

• Red - Ho Chi Minh City
• Black - Riyadh

The red card is handy if the Medic needs to dash across the board. I now have a total of five black cards spread across all the characters, it's just a case of getting them together, easier said than done at the moment. If it was the last disease to cure then it would be worth the gamble just going for it, but as there are two left, I need a little more caution.

Medic infection draw

• Yellow - Kinshasa
• Yellow - Bogota
• Blue - Milan

What's with all the yellow cards coming out one after the other? I was lucky to have cleared Bogota, and the Quarantine Specialist prevents a cube going onto Milan and causing an outbreak.

Researcher

I would like to try and get the black cards of the other two characters, but it isn't going to be easy. I think it would be better to thin down Kolkata and Shanghai first, and see what cards get drawn this time around. So, she moves to Kolkata and treats disease three times, removing all 3 cubes.

I could have just treated disease once and then moved on to finish in Shanghai, but I wouldn't have had enough actions to treat disease there, and the cube state of Shanghai would remain the same. So, better to do something useful with the turn by removing the 3 cubes from Kolkata. Of course, Shanghai only becomes a problem if Beijing gets drawn, and then an epidemic occurs, and Beijing coming out again - I think the odds are on my side.

Researcher city draw

• Red - Manila
• Black - Kolkata

That's four black cards in her hand, just one more to get.

Researcher infection draw

• Black - Chennai
• Yellow - Los Angeles
• Black - Moscow

That puts all three of those countries on 3 cubes, but at least they're in the discard pile... at the moment!

Quarantine Specialist

First off she treats disease in Milan, and as we have a cure, she removes all 3 cubes there. She then moves via Istanbul to Moscow, and uses her last action to treat disease, removing 1 black cube.

I could have concentrated on trying to eradicate the blue disease, but that would be a mistake. The object of the game is to cure, not eradicate the diseases, and first time players often fall foul of this. By moving to Moscow she not only prevents the possibility of an outbreak there, but is also in a position to share knowledge with the researcher next turn, giving her Moscow.

Quarantine Specialist city draw

• Yellow- Santiago
• Blue - Atlanta

Good, I need all the yellow cards I can get my hands on!

Quarantine Specialist infection draw

• Black - Baghdad
• Red - Beijing
• Red - Osaka

Damn. Once again this puts all three countries onto 3 cubes, and Beijing is right next to Shanghai, which is also on 3 but was removed from the game earlier, so isn't in the infection deck!

Round 6





Medic

With The yellow disease running rampant, I think it's best to keep the Medic mopping up yellow cubes. He moves to Mexico and treats disease, removing 2 cubes, then on to LA and treats again, this time removing 3 cubes. (Reminder - this is the medic's special ability to remove all cubes of one colour when treating disease.)

I would much prefer to have the Medic dealing with the red trouble spots, as he only has to move through them to remove the cubes as the disease has been cured. So with that in mind I am moving him towards San Francisco, so he can cross to Manila or Tokyo next turn.

Medic city draw

• Yellow - Sao Paulo
• Yellow - Lima

Excellent, the Medic now has four yellow cards, just one more required. The Quarantine Specialist has two and can get to the Medic next go. So, maybe things are looking up... Let's see what the infection draw brings.

Medic infection draw

• Blue - St. Petersburg
• Red - Manila
• Black - Kolkata

A good draw. No cube goes on St. Petersburg as it's connected to Moscow where the Quarantine Specialist is. Manila is now on 3 cubes, but the Medic is in reach next turn (if we get that far!). Kolkata isn't an issue with its one cube.

Researcher

Takes three actions to move to Moscow, and the last one to share knowledge with the Quarantine Specialist, receiving Moscow.

An obvious move for the Quarantine Specialist, as she is now in a position to cure the black disease next turn.

Researcher city draw

• Event - Airlift - Move any 1 pawn to any city. (As she has eight cards she discards Manila)
• Yellow - Kinshasa

As she is once again on eight cards, instead of discarding a city cards she plays the event card - Airlift - moving the Medic to Bogota.

Moving the Medic to Bogota sets up a win in three more turns as the Quarantine Specialist can move to Santiago by using a direct flight, and then to Bogota and share knowledge. I just need a good couple of infection draws.

Researcher infection draw

• Yellow - Santiago
• Red - Taipei
• Blue - Essen

None of these are of immediate concern, I've been lucky this go!

Quarantine Specialist

I'm now going for broke, I have the possibility of curing the two remaining disease in the next few turns. It's a gamble, as an epidemic is due to come out in the next 6 cards - if I've counted it out correctly that is, but I can take five outbreaks before losing the game that way, so I think it's worth the risk.

She discards Santiago to take a direct flight there. Then to Lima and onto Bogota, that's 3 actions all together. Her last action is spent sharing knowledge with the Medic, giving him Bogota. The Medic discards Madrid as he has eight cards.

This move at least leaves the Quarantine Specialist protecting Sao Paulo, as it's connected to Bogota. Next move will see the Medic cure the Yellow disease... hopefully!

Quarantine Specialist city draw

• Black - Karachi
• Blue - Essen

Relief, no epidemic, lets hope I can go one more turn without seeing one!

Quarantine Specialist infection draw

• Blue - London
• Black - Algiers
• Blue - Chicago

I know I'm pretty safe on the infection draws at the moment - I'm drawing cards that have not been out before, so they shouldn't have many, if any, cubes on them.

Round 7





Medic

The Medic moves to Miami and on to Atlanta, where he discards the five yellow cards to discover the cure. With his last action he discards Ho Chi Minh City to take a direct flight there.

One more disease to cure, and hopefully I should be able to do that next turn. It would take something disastrous to lose the game now. I still took the opportunity to move the Medic to a red country, though it shouldn't be needed. Even if an epidemic comes up this turn, it is highly unlikely to cause five outbreaks or use up all of one colours cubes, so it looks as if the win is in the bag... Oh dear, I've gone and said it now!!!

Medic city draw

• Yellow - Lagos
• Black - Delhi

I've been really fortunate over this epidemic period - it appears that it must have been on the bottom of its deck when they were placed on top of one another at the start, as I work out that there is only 11 cards left.

Medic infection draw

• Blue - Paris
• Red - Ho Chi Minh City
• Black - Mumbai

Hurrah, nothing to worry about there, let's get on with the next turn!

Researcher

Holding five black cards she makes her way to the research station in Baghdad, which takes two actions. She then discovers a cure for the black disease and we win the game - panic over, the world has been saved!

The End

I took a look at the remainder of the city deck - the next two cards were both epidemics, it looks like I won just in the nick of time.

Well, that's my first play-through over and it's taken a lot longer than I expected, probably because I was doing it in small intervals rather than taking the time to do play it in one sitting. Next time, if there is a next time, I'll attempt to do it in one go.

With a bit of though, keeping an eye on what's in the infection discard pile, and an awareness of when the epidemics are going to come out, it should be possible to beat the game more often than not. It does make it slightly harder not dealing the player deck out evenly at the start, when you place the epidemics into it, but the one in every ten is usually not far off however you do it.

Of course, you can then move on to the harder game and include all six epidemics!

          Historical Technology Books: Farm mechanics by Herbert A. Shearer (1918) - 1 in a series      Cache   Translate Page      

Technology isnt just computers, networks and phones. Technology has always been part of the human experience. All of our ancestors have looked for ways to help the survive and do less work for more gain. Archive.org has a host of old technology books (from mid-19th to mid-20th Century) available in many formats and on a host of topics. Many of the technologies discussed within these books are being put to use again these days in the back to the land" and homesteading movements. You might even find something that could address one of your own garden or farm issues, but has been lost to time and history. Enjoy! --Douglas

PREFACE

More mechanical knowledge is required on the farm than in any other line of business. If a farmer is not mechanically inclined, he is under the necessity of employing someone who is.

Some farms are supplied with a great many handy contrivances to save labor. Farmers differ a great deal in this respect. Some are natural mechanics, some learn how to buy and how to operate the best farm machinery, while others are still living in the past.

Some farmers who make the least pretensions have the best machinery and implements. They may not be good mechanics, but they have an eye to the value of labor saving tools.

The object of this book is to emphasize the importance of mechanics in modern farming ; to fit scores of quick-acting machines into the daily routine of farm work and thereby lift heavy loads from the shoulders of men and women ; to increase the output at less cost of hand labor and to improve the soil while producing more abundantly than ever before ; to suggest the use of suitable machines to manufacture high-priced nutritious human foods from cheap farm by-products.

Illustrations are used to explain principles rather than to recommend any particular type or pattern of machine.

The old is contrasted with the new and the merits of both are expressed.

THE AUTHOR,

Gray Hats: Cybersecurity Pros Straddle Good and Bad Hacking Practices juliet.vanwage… Mon, 10/08/2018 - 16:12

Are cybercriminals winning? That was the question posed by Marcin Kleczynski, founder and CEO of Malwarebytes, during his presentation “Is the New Cybercriminal Mafia Winning? Recruitment, Retention and the Hire” at Cyber Security Chicago on Sept. 26, 2018. This presentation, along with the recent release of an Osterman Research white paper titled “White Hat, Black Hat and the Emergence of the Gray Hat: The True Costs of Cybercrime,” sponsored by Malwarebytes, paints a troubling picture of the current state of cybersecurity, the cybersecurity profession and the resulting costs to organizations.

VIDEO: Check out how new tools and solutions equip IT teams with more advanced, effective security defenses!

Cybersecurity Budgets on the Rise for Businesses

Large organizations in the U.S. were queried by Osterman Research in 2017 about their then-current security budgets and their projected 2018 budgets. These companies reported a 21.2 percent increase in spending from 2017 to 2018, averaging growth from $697,000 to $845,000.

“Cybersecurity has become a board-level discussion,” says Kleczynski. “With all of these breaches in the news, I’ve seen chief security officers come to board meetings with articles printed out, showing the board members and CEOs what could possibly happen.”

This increase is promising for security teams, which have traditionally been an afterthought in the corporate budget hierarchy. But it can also be a bad sign for businesses, reflecting an increase in cyberthreats and a growing need to address them.

“While security budgets are increasing, the amount of security needed to protect an organization is increasing, as well,” Kleczynski explains.

Breaches and Remediation Continue to Cost Companies

When you take a closer look at where that budget is going, these organizations spent 14.7 percent of it addressing active compromises, according to the report. This refers to costs associated with day-to-day remediation, fixing active breaches caused by phishing attacks, malware and the like.

“Nearly 15 percent of these budgets are being spent on remediation,” Kleczynski says. “They spend all of this money on prevention, and yet 15 percent is still being used to remediate. So, this raises an interesting issue: Is protection just never enough and remediation is always necessary? Or do businesses need to reinvest more money into protection in the first place?”

The survey also asked about a hypothetical catastrophic security event, such as a widespread ransomware attack. The survey results calculated that these companies would spend an average of $429,000 to remediate such an event. That’s more than 50 percent of their projected 2018 budgets. This heavy cost factors in a variety of expenses tied to major event remediation: direct IT and labor costs, software and hardware solutions, direct costs such as paying a ransom, fines and legal fees.

And, make no mistake, catastrophic breaches are going to happen. The survey reveals that these organizations experienced an average of 1.8 major security events in 2017 — with the U.S. seeing nearly three times as many attacks, on average, as European countries. Budget allocated for catastrophic remediation will not go untouched.

Calculating the Total Cost of Cybercrime

Security budgets are rising, but it still may not be enough to cover the cost of breaches and mitigate growing risks. The survey also looked at the cost to an organization of directly dealing with cybercrime, breaking down costs into three areas: the security infrastructure itself, the off-budget costs tied to major security events and costs tied to insider threats:

  • $1.9 million: total costs for U.S. organizations
  • $697,000: total infrastructure costs
  • $759,000: total remediation costs
  • $440,000: total insider-threat costs

According to these cost breakdowns, there is a significant gap between what organizations are budgeting to address security ($845,000) and what they are actually paying ($1.9 million); not even half of the total costs of cybercrime are covered.

The Rise of the Gray Hat Hacker

Insider threats, specifically black hat activity, represent a notable portion of cybercrime. Among U.S. cybersecurity professionals, 50 percent have known someone that has participated in black hat activity, and 22 percent have been approached about engaging in it. One in 20 of surveyed cybersecurity professionals identified themselves as gray hats — holding down a white hat job as a professional while also engaging in black hat activity on the side.

Much of the motivation of gray hats lies in the belief that it’s easy to engage in cybercrime without getting caught or prosecuted.

“A lot of cybercriminals aren’t being prosecuted very vigorously,” says Kleczynski. “There were only 47 prosecutions in the U.K. last year under the Computer Misuse Act.”

The other obvious motivation is money: There’s greater financial opportunity wearing a black hat than there is wearing a white hat.

“Part of the problem is a lot of companies are not paying their cybersecurity professionals enough, or they’re not giving them enough challenging tasks. They’re not being engaged,” says Kleczynski. “If you put a more lucrative package in front of them, with very little risk of being caught or prosecuted, it’s understandable that they will consider it.”

This makes for an interesting dynamic within the cybersecurity profession at the moment, Kleczynski notes. On one hand, there is a shortage of security professionals and security is only growing as a driver and concern within the corporate world. On the other hand, budgets do not align with the reality of cybersecurity needs. Companies have not yet come around to seeing the connection between the risks they are facing and the need to put out money for security talent to protect them.

“The situation is odd, because you have a massive shortage of personnel in the white hat industry, so companies should be paying for top talent and retention, but they’re not,” says Kleczynski. “That dynamic is not sustainable.”

Iac,

I see little to nothing in the Bogira article, 'Trying to make separate equal,' to support your eagerness to spend capital funds first and foremost in schools with the highest white populations (or as you call them, 'racially integrated' schools). One study from the article finds that reading and math improvements between 1990 and 1996 were greater in integrated schools than in 'truly disadvantaged' schools.

" It's also common to see unauthorized vehicles, especially corporate shuttles, using the red lanes, which doesn't help CTA travel times."

I've never been sure whether all buses are allowed to use the bus lane or only CTA buses. The signs say "only buses CTA", which is really odd phrasing.

JT, the article you chose is basically a criticism against successful capitalists holding office due to the potential for conflicts of interest. I'm not sure if you would call the article anti-capitalist, or socialist, or what, but the only "crime" of the repeatedly elected official is, apparently, being a wealthy businessman and holding office-- which poses a potential conflict of interest.

The other thing that happens, of course, is that politicians will give large compensation raises to government employees, bringing it much greater than what they'd receive in the private sector for similar work, that have no relation to any type of improvement of government services. There is no consideration given to how this would cost the taxpayer down the road in terms of increased taxes or lower government services than otherwise.

          Chicago Public Library: Best Books of 2016      Cache   Translate Page      

We're lucky the staff and librarians at the Chicago Public Library read a lot of books and have the ability to recognize high-quality when they see it. Expand your mind and gift yourself with great books this year with their recently published Best of the Best Books 2016.

"We like to connect with readers in our neighborhoods and take into consideration the opinions of critics and feedback from our readers," said Stephen Sposato, CPL Manager of Content Curation. "We try to select books that will stand the test of time, at least in the short-term, and we feel many of these will be contemporary classics. It's important to aim for a diversity of subjects, genres and reading levels so that hopefully there’s something for everyone."

The top three of the Best Books of 2016: Top Ten include:

1. Blood at the Root: A Racial Cleansing in America by Patrick Phillips

At the turn of the twentieth century, Forsyth County, Georgia, was home to an African American community that included ministers and teachers, farmers and field hands, tradesmen, servants, and children. But in September of 1912, three young black laborers were accused of raping and murdering a white girl. In a tale of racial cleansing in Forsyth County, Georgia and testament to the deep roots of racial violence in America, Patrick Phillips breaks the century-long silence of his hometown and uncovers history of racial terrorism that continues to shape America in the twenty-first century. 

2. Commonwealth by Ann Patchett

This is an enthralling story of how an unexpected romantic encounter irrevocably changes two families' lives. One Sunday afternoon in Southern California, Bert Cousins shows up at Franny Keating's christening party uninvited. Before evening falls, he has kissed Franny's mother, Beverly--thus setting in motion the dissolution of their marriages and the joining of two families. Spanning five decades, Commonwealth explores how this chance encounter reverberates through the lives of the four parents and six children involved.

3. Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond

Stephen Sposato said his favorite book on the list is Evicted by Matthew Desmond. "It's a brilliant and eye-opening look at the experience of eviction (and poverty) in America. Desmond focuses on Milwaukee but what he learned there can be applied to the experience in cities around the country. Desmond is hugely committed to the issue, having experience eviction in his own life. He’s done ground-breaking research, but it never drags the reading down because his writing brings it home in a personal way by focusing on relatable individuals."
