          Gecko butt-dials 'bazillion' times from Hawaii seal hospital      Cache   Translate Page      
HONOLULU (AP) — If you got incessant phone calls last week from a hospital that cares for Hawaiian monk seals, you were butt-dialed. Or, more specifically, foot-dialed. By a gecko. Marine mammal veterinarian Claire Simeone was at lunch when she got a call from Ke Kai Ola, the Big Island hospital where she's director. There was silence on the other end. Nine more silent calls followed. Fearing a seal emergency, she rushed back. She wasn't the only one getting calls, and people started asking why the hospital was calling non-stop. Trying figure out why a "bazillion" calls were made from one line, she called the phone company and a rep tried to talk her through finding a possible line on the fritz.

          Robert De Niro Honored at 2018 Carousel of Hope Ball      Cache   Translate Page      

On Saturday, October 6, event chair Barbara Davis hosted her iconic Carousel of Hope Ball at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.

Robert De Niro and Jay Leno at Carousel of Hope Gala
Robert De Niro and Jay Leno at Carousel of Hope Gala

The gala, a Hollywood institution since 1978, honored longtime supporter Robert De Niro with the “Brass Ring Award” for his philanthropic efforts and continued dedication to the cause. Patrons of the evening were treated to show-stopping performances by legends Gladys Knight, Kenny Babyface Edmonds, and David Foster. The Carousel of Hope Ball has raised more than $100 million to date, with proceeds benefitting the Children’s Diabetes Foundation and the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes. This year’s gala alone raised over $1.9 Million.

Award-winning director David O. Russell took the stage to present his friend and frequent collaborator Robert De Niro with this year’s “Brass Ring Award.” De Niro delivered a heartfelt speech, recognizing the awe-inspiring work being done by the evening’s host, Barbara Davis. He listed the many reasons to love Mrs. Davis and said that “we’re all in her debt because she’s so nice, generous, and committed, but she doesn’t just throw money at the challenge of treating and beating type 1 diabetes, she puts her resources where they will do the most good. It’s informed philanthropy – not just about giving, but about getting it done!”

The award was named after the elusive brass ring that carousel riders would try to catch when the ride first became popular. Now universally recognized as a symbol of achievement, the brass ring represents the ultimate goal of finding a cure for diabetes. Each of the “Brass Ring Award” recipients exemplifies the dedication and strength that brings the Children’s Diabetes Foundation and the Barbara Davis Center one step closer to finding a cure.

David Foster led the evening’s musical festivities, introducing a few of his wildly talented artists, Pia Toscano, Shelea Frazier, and Fernando Varela, who brought the house down with classics including “I Will Always Love You” and “Nessun Dorma.” Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds delivered an exciting rendition of Eric Clapton’s “Change the World” and an emotional performance of “When Can I See You.” Legendary performer Gladys Knight had the crowd singing along to some of her biggest hits like “Midnight Train to Georgia” and “Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me,” and surprised everyone with a mesmerizing cover of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me.” Carrying on a Carousel of Hope tradition, the evening culminated in a group performance of “That’s What Friends Are For,” which featured all of the evening’s participants gathering together in harmony.

The always-entertaining Jay Leno reprised his role of Master of Ceremonies, and added “Auctioneer” this year. He led a memorable live auction experience that had guests bidding on items ranging from a bespoke trip for four to the “albergo diffuso” Monteverdi Tuscany, to a private meeting with Clive Davis himself at his New York City office. During a silent auction earlier in the evening, guests had the chance to bid on a wide range of one-of-a-kind items including a Serena Williams autographed tennis racket, a Lenny Kravitz autographed Gibson Flying V guitar, a Meet & Greet with Lionel Richie in Vegas for four, and a three-night stay at The Kahala Hotel & Resort in Honolulu. The show was produced by another longtime friend of the organization, the brilliant George Schlatter. Music icons Clive Davis and Quincy Jones served as the evening’s Music Chairmen,

Additional guests included Debbie Allen, Catherine Bach, Ed Begley Jr. & Rachelle Carson-Begley, Alana Collins Stewart, Joan Collins, Billy Davis, Loretta Devine, Frances Fisher, Daisy Fuentes & Richard Marx, George Hamilton, Lisa Rinna & Harry Hamlin, Nikki Haskell, Lauren Holly, Deborah Joy-Winans, Josh Kercher, Taylor Kinney, Art Linson & Fiona Lewis, Nigel Lythgoe & Lisa LoCicero, Maureen McCormick & Michael Cumming, Katharine McPhee, Bob Newhart, Brigitte Nielson, Norm Nixon, Robin Plunkett, Andre Reed, Elisabeth Röhm, David O. Russell, Fred Savage, John Savage, Jolene Schlatter, Hilary Shor, Suzanne Somers & Alan Hamel, Lea Thompson, Ann Turkel & Vincent Spano, Diane Warren, and many more!

The 2018 Carousel of Hope Ball is generously sponsored by American Airlines, the Official Airline of The Carousel of Hope; The Beverly Hilton; Tina & Rick Caruso; Marlyn & Robert Day; and Dexcom.

Gecko butt-dials 'bazillion' times from Hawaii seal hospital

HONOLULU (AP) - If you got incessant phone calls last week from a hospital that cares for Hawaiian monk seals, you were butt-dialed.

Or, more specifically, foot-dialed.

By a gecko.

Marine mammal veterinarian Claire Simeone was getting lunch when she got a call from the Big Island hospital where she's director. There was silence on the other end. Nine more silent calls followed. Fearing a seal emergency, she rushed back.

She wasn't the only one getting calls, and people started asking why the hospital was calling non-stop. Simeone says on Twitter the phone company acknowledged a "bazillion" calls were made.

Simeone walked into a lab at the hospital and found the culprit. The gecko was perched on a phone, making calls to everyone in the recent call history with "HIS TINY GECKO FEET!"

          ILYA Crushes US Adult Sailing Championship      Cache   Translate Page      
(Wayzata, MN)— Michael Hanson (Wayzata, Minn.) and crew turned a 56-year drought on its ear this past weekend when they won the 63rd U.S. Adult Sailing Championship sailing on a fleet of matched J/22 one-design class sailboats. They didn’t just turn it on its ear, they sailed consistently enough to take 16 podium finishes in 20 races!

Hanson, Tim Siemers (Maple Grove, Minn.) and Mark Swift (St. Paul, Minn.) dominated the regatta, posting the low score of 53 points to win the coveted Mallory Trophy. They won six races and finished outside of the top three only three times in 20 races for an incredibly low average score of 2.7.

The Mallory Trophy has a mixed history of close finishes and blowouts. The past two years have been more on the blowout side, with victories by 11 and 13 points, and Hanson continued that trend. His 16-point margin of victory is the largest since a 21-point victory in 2011. Hanson and crew won the first four races and never looked back.

“We had great teamwork all weekend,” said Hanson. “Mark on the bow and Tim in the middle were rock solid. It was shifty all weekend, so you had to stay in phase.

“Our game plan was to not make any big mistakes,” Hanson continued. “We came out guns blazing and won the first four races. We kind of kept the pedal to the metal on Day 2 and then played it a bit more conservatively the last two days. All in all, it was awesome.”

Benz Faget (Metairie, La.) of the Gulf Yachting Association, who was aiming for a record-tying fourth championship, finished second with 69 points. Third-placed Paul Wilson (New York, N.Y.) of the Southern Massachusetts Sailing Association finished with 86 points. (Wilson overtook Ryan Lashaway (Rocky River, Ohio) of the Inter-Lake Sailing Association when Lashaway was disqualified from Race 20, the first race of the final day. Lashaway finished fourth with 90 points.)

J/22 sailng on Lake Minnetonka, MNThe winning trio represented the Inland Lake Yachting Association. An association of some 51 clubs across 10 states and the District of Columbia, the ILYA won the Mallory Trophy four years in a row, 1959-’62, with the legendary Harry C. “Buddy” Melges, an America’s Cup winner and Olympic Gold and Bronze medalist, winning the first three of those titles.

Although the ILYA hasn’t won since 1962, 28 years before the 28-year-old Hanson was born, he wanted to represent the ILYA to stem that drought. Hanson was “well aware” of the ILYA’s history and in particular Melges’ victories, whom he views as an idol.

“I’ve heard stories of Buddy looking back on those victories as a springboard to his career,” Hanson said. “He’s a bit of an idol in the ILYA and I can only hope that this victory has a similar effect on my career.”

Hanson, who grew up sailing scows, is building an impressive résumé. He was part of the winning crew for the 2018 ILYA A Scow Championships and last year sailed aboard a Sydney 38 in the Sydney-Hobart Race where they placed first in Class C under the ORCi rating system and fifth under IRC. He has taught sailing in Australia, California and locally as Race Director at the Lake Minnetonka Sailing School. Now he shares his name on two trophy placards with Melges.

“When I was 14 years old, I won an X-Boat regatta that Buddy had won,” Hanson said of the popular one-design that is raced on lakes. “It’s an honor seeing my name on a trophy with his.”

The championship regatta was hosted by the Wayzata Yacht Club in Wayzata, Minn., just outside the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area, and was sailed on Lake Minnetonka. The race committee ran a total of 22 races, with each of the 11 teams getting two byes in the series. Races were held on a windward/leeward course with the breeze ranging from today’s low of 6 to 8 knots to yesterday’s gusty, 20 knots.

While the race committee ordered no spinnakers for the final race, Race 17, on Saturday, today the regatta was welcomed by 40-degree (F) temperatures, prompting many to add yet another layer.

“We had a little bit of everything,” said Hanson. “We were a little under weight in the heavy winds yesterday and were sort of just hanging in there.”

At the final awards ceremony, the teams representing the Sailing Association of Intermountain Lakes from Colorado and the Hawaii Yacht Racing Association were together awarded the Staton J. Peele Sportsmanship Trophy, as voted by their regatta peers.

The HYRA crew was skippered by Maddy Kennedy (Honolulu, Hawaii), who grew up in the Wayzata area, and Robin Jackson (Littleton, Colo.) skipped the SAIL crew. Both teams were praised by their peers.

The two teams were commended for their great attitudes, fun-loving approach, regatta spirit, and friendliness. Both teams also demonstrated great sportsmanship on the course in some difficult situations, and while assisting the jury with protest resolution.

The Hawaii team was also recognized for having traveled the greatest distance.

The regatta organizers at the Wayzata Yacht Club put forth a fantastic event, one that will be remembered on many levels.

“Overall, the U.S. Adult Sailing Championship went about as smoothly as we could have expected,” said Odell Tuttle, Communications Chairman for the Wayzata Yacht Club. “The level of competition did not disappoint. The spectators and volunteers were excited to watch the battle for the top three spots, and were very impressed with the hometown team from ILYA as they captured the top spot.

“Our volunteers and staff really exceeded expectations. We owe them a big thanks,” Tuttle said. “We also thank the competitors for the camaraderie, competitive spirit, sportsmanship, and tolerance of the cold temperatures.”  For more U.S. Adult Sailing Championship sailing informationAdd to Flipboard Magazine.

For somebody like me, the Major League Baseball playoffs serve as a splendid diversion from the squalor of partisan politics. For serious fans, the drama of an October Red Sox-Yankees series provides the kind of emotional release others derive from a night at the symphony or a hike through a national park.

Escapist? You bet.

But they won't let you escape, the nation's influential cadre of humorless racial grievance specialists. So it was that the New York Daily News delivered the following sports headline: "Ron Darling uses slur in reference to Masahiro Tanaka on TBS broadcast of Yankees/Red Sox Game 2."

Here's what happened: Masahiro Tanaka, the brilliant Yankees pitcher, was making Red Sox hitters look futile. (In my opinion, he's the best they've got.) Up in the broadcast booth, Ron Darling, the former Mets pitcher doing commentary for TBS, thought he detected a lessening of Tanaka's pinpoint control. Lacking overpowering stuff, i.e. velocity and movement, Tanaka needs precise location to be effective.

"Chink in the armor for Tanaka here," the announcer said. "It's the first inning he has lost a little of his control."

Whoop, whoop, whoop! Clang, clang, clang!

Racial grievance monitors at the Daily News, Yahoo Sports and a few other media outlets signaled a red alert. An opportunity to wreck the announcer's career with an absurd allegation of bigotry presented itself.

To the Daily News, Darling's "boneheaded comment" was only made worse because the announcer "did not appear to realize that he had used the slur in reference to Tanaka, who is Asian."

Actually, it's the cliche alarms that should have gone off. Like every phrase I've used to describe Tanaka's performance — "pinpoint control," "overpowering stuff" — the expression "chink in the armor" is a familiar sports expression. Maybe it's possible to describe an entire baseball game in witty, original phrases but I don't believe I've heard it done. Indeed, the very familiarity of baseball jargon is part of its appeal. Everybody knows what it means.

Except the aforementioned grievance specialists. So let's go to the dictionary, shall we? The word "chink" is defined as "a crack, cleft or fissure," such as "a chink in a wall." It is derived from Old Norse. The phrase "chink in the armor" to describe vulnerability dates to the 17th century. It's what George Orwell called a "dead metaphor" — that is, one whose original vividness faded after knights quit wearing suits of armor.

Alas, "chink" has in latter days evolved into a homonym. That is a word spelled and/or pronounced the same with divergent meanings — "horse/hoarse," "deer/dear" or "clink," which is both a noise and a jail cell. Context is all. English seems to have more of them than any other language.

The other meaning of "chink," is of course offensive — a derogatory reference to a Chinese person dating to the late 19th century in America, and probably derived from the Chinese language itself, as in the "Ch'ing Dynasty."

OK, enough pedantry. In context, what Ron Darling, himself an excellent pitcher for the New York Mets back in the day, was saying — and ALL he was saying — was that Masahiro Tanaka appeared to be tiring, and that if his precise control faltered, the Red Sox might light him up. Nothing more or less.

Any other reading is both perverse and malicious.

Because here's the rest of the story: Masahiro Tanaka isn't just "Asian," he's Japanese. The best pitcher the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles ever had. He once won 26 consecutive games in the Nippon Pacific League. Calling him a "Chink" would be like calling an Englishman a "Frog."

As somebody who grew up in the shadow of World War II, I certainly heard anti-Japanese slurs in my youth. But "Chink," as one of my Arkansas country boy friends likes to say, "Not never one time."

It gets worse. You see the imaginary bigot Darling is himself of racially mixed heritage. Specifically, he was born in Honolulu to a mother of Hawaiian/Chinese descent. His father was French Canadian. You'd have to think he'd be just about the last guy in the broadcast booth to use an anti-Asian slur.

Nevertheless, and probably wisely under the circumstances, Darling, a Yale graduate who has written actual books, took the easy way out. He apologized. "Earlier (Saturday night)," he said in a statement to Yahoo Sports, "I used an expression while referencing Masahiro Tanaka's recent pitching performance. While unintentional, I apologize for my choice of words."

Now me, I'd have wanted to confront the fake-outrage machine over something so egregiously stupid. Darling, however, does baseball. To him, it's the Red Sox-Yankees series that's important. Why risk professional suicide to defend an aged sports cliche?

This has happened before. ESPN once fired somebody for using the phrase with reference to Chinese-American NBA player Jeremy Lin.

And every time it does, a few more guys vote Republican.
