(Lincoln, NE) -- More Cabela's-related layoffs are planned. According to a notice filed with the Nebraska Labor Department, more than 150 people who work on the credit card operation of Cabela's in Lincoln will lose their jobs. Capital One Financial purchased Cabela's credit card operation when the Sidney-based outdoors retailer was acquired by Springfield, Missouri-based Bass Pro Shops in a deal that was finalized last year. Capitol One officials tell the "Omaha World Herald" that remaining employees in Lincoln will continue to serve Cabela's customers.

          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.

Previous recipients include Joshua Bell, Gil Shaham, Midori and Sarah Chang, among others. "My goal will continue to be to enlarge and enrich the repertoire of the violin by commissioning and performing works of the 20th and 21st centuries," Josefowicz said. "My intention is to help create new masterworks for future violinists to study and perform for audiences. It is so necessary that the great works of today be heard." Josefowicz, 40, is a recipient of a 1994 Avery Fisher Career Grant and a 2008 MacArthur ‘genius’ grant. Known for her advocacy and fine performances of modern works, she has premiered violin concertos by many composers including John Adams, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Colin Matthews and Steven Mackey.

'The Walking Dead' se muere: la audiencia de la serie se hunde en el estreno de la temporada 9 #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

'The Walking Dead' fue durante años una de las series mejor valoradas por el público, algo que se traducía en unas audiencias millonarias al alcance de muy pocas. Sin embargo, su popularidad lleva un tiempo de capa caída y parece que su descenso no tiene fin, ya que el estreno de la temporada 9 apenas ha conseguido reunir ante el televisión a 6,08 millones de espectadores, el peor dato de la serie desde el sexto episodio de la segunda temporada.

Por dejarlo todo más claro, la octava temporada debutó con 11,44 millones de espectadores. Vamos, que por el camino se han quedado 5,36 millones de televidentes. La bajada es aún más acusada en los ratings, donde marcó un 2.5, el dato más bajo de la serie hasta la fecha y justamente la mitad que consiguió el inicio de la anterior temporada.

Además, ese no debería ser el único motivo de preocupación para AMC, ya que todas las temporadas comienzan con más seguimiento del que tienen en los siguientes episodios. Por ello, no sería raro que 'The Walking Dead' supere el mínimo histórico de la serie en manos hasta ahora del segundo capítulo de la primera temporada con 4,71 millones de espectadores.

Lo curioso es que todo esto no ha impedido que 'The Walking Dead' vuelva a ser la serie por cable más vista de la temporada entre los adultos entre los 18 y los 49 años. Eso sí, ahora será mucho más fácil superarla y ya es una mera cuestión de tiempo que alguna serie la destrone. Tampoco conviene olvidar las inminentes marchas de Andrew Lincoln y Lauren Cohan, algo que seguro que vuelve a atraer a algunos fans, pero tengo mis dudas sobre que vayan a quedarse. Y otros quizá simplemente pierdan el interés sin Rick y Maggie...

          'Không nên vội vàng xây nhà hát 1.500 tỷ ở Thủ Thiêm'      Cache   Translate Page      

KTS Ngô Viết Nam Sơn: "Xét bối cảnh TP.HCM, cơ sở hạ tầng của chúng ta vẫn chưa đầy đủ, Metro đang bị ngưng lại, thành phố ngập nước, bãi đậu xe thiếu, bệnh viện trường học thiếu trầm trọng,... thì cần phải xem xét lại việc có nên ưu tiên xây dựng nhà hát trong thời điểm này không?"

"Đã xây dựng thì phải xứng tầm với TP.HCM. Nếu chưa có tiền thì quy hoạch để đó từ từ xây, không nên vội vàng", KTS Ngô Viết Nam Sơn nói. 


Ngày 8/10, tại kỳ họp thứ 10 HĐND TP.HCM khoá IX (kỳ họp bất thường), đại biểu đã thông qua dự án xây dựng nhà hát Giao hưởng, Nhạc và Vũ kịch.

Đây là nhà hát đạt tiêu chuẩn quốc tế, đặt tại Khu đô thị mới Thủ Thiêm (quận 2). Dự án có tổng mức đầu tư hơn 1.508 tỷ đồng từ nguồn thu bán đấu giá khu đất 23 Lê Duẩn (quận 1). Nhà hát có quy mô 1.700 chỗ, gồm hai khán phòng lớn và nhỏ. Thời gian thực hiện trong giai đoạn 2018-2022.

Sau khi HĐND TP.HCM thông qua dự án này, rất nhiều ý kiến xoay quanh việc nên hay không dùng 1.500 tỷ để xây nhà hát. Zing.vn có cuộc trao đổi với KTS Ngô Viết Nam Sơn xoay quanh vấn đề này.


Cần sử dụng ngân sách 1.500 tỷ hiệu quả


Theo KTS Ngô Viết Nam Sơn, TP.HCM chưa có nhà hát Giao hưởng, Nhạc và Vũ kịch đúng tiêu chuẩn, việc xây dựng nhà hát lớn với đô thị như TP.HCM là cần thiết. Thủ Thiêm cũng là vị trí phù hợp để xây dựng nhà hát.

Tuy nhiên, ông Sơn băn khoăn liệu quyết định từ HĐND đưa ra có vội vàng. "Đại biểu biểu quyết xây nhà hát phải có sự cân nhắc thấu đáo. Kỳ họp bất thường, đại biểu HĐND trước khi quyết định phải được tư vấn đúng. Tôi không biết là họ có được cung cấp thông tin đầy đủ để quyết định hay không?", ông Nam Sơn nói.

KTS cho rằng 1.500 tỷ là số tiền lớn, làm được rất nhiều việc. Trong bối cảnh TP.HCM đang gặp nhiều vấn đề về ngân sách thì việc sử dụng số tiền lớn này cần phải được cân nhắc thật kỹ lưỡng.

"Thành phố đang thiếu hụt ngân sách thì việc dùng 1.500 tỷ đầu tư vào mục đích gì rất quan trọng. Có nên dùng để xây dựng nhà hát liền hay không? Trong danh sách các công trình ưu tiên xây dựng của thành phố hiện nay thì nhà hát này có thật sự xứng đáng ở vị trí đầu không?", vị KTS băn khoăn.

Bên cạnh đó, ông Sơn cũng nhận định việc đề xuất xây dựng này quá vội vàng, chưa có kế hoạch tốt. Quy mô nhà hát 1.700 chỗ ở một khu đất hẹp là không đúng tầm với TP.HCM. KTS cho rằng với tầm cỡ đô thị như TP.HCM thì nếu làm, phải dành khu vực văn hóa diện tích từ 2-3 ha trở lên, tạo thành khu biểu diễn nghệ thuật cao cấp, có cả trong nhà, ngoài trời, có đủ các bộ môn nghệ thuật biểu diễn.

"Nhà hát chỉ có 1.700 chỗ trên một miếng đất nhỏ thì theo tôi đây là quy hoạch chưa đúng tầm với khu trung tâm đô thị mới của TP.HCM. Tham khảo Trung tâm biểu diễn nghệ thuật Lincoln Center của New York (Mỹ), gồm khoảng 30 khu biểu diễn nghệ thuật lớn nhỏ, trong nhà lẫn ngoài trời, với quy mô từ 30 đến 3.900 chỗ, thì nhóm công trình văn hóa nghệ thuật tại trung tâm Thủ Thiêm có thể nhỏ hơn nhiều, nhưng nên quy hoạch tại vị trí cảnh quan đẹp, như ven sông hồ để làm điểm nhấn đô thị", ông Sơn bày tỏ.

KTS Ngô Viết Nam Sơn cũng cho rằng không chỉ có giao hưởng, nhạc kịch mà các bộ môn khác như cải lương, chèo, hát bội,... ở TP.HCM vẫn chưa có không gian để sinh hoạt. Do đó, cần cân nhắc lại quy hoạch để có quần thể nhà hát đa năng.

"Đã xây dựng thì phải xứng tầm với TP.HCM. Nếu chưa có tiền thì quy hoạch để đó từ từ xây, chứ không nên vội vàng. Trong giai đoạn hiện nay thì nhà hát mới chưa phải là ưu tiên hàng đầu", KTS nhấn mạnh.


Nhà hát có giúp Thủ Thiêm phát triển?


Tại kỳ họp, Chủ tịch HĐND TP.HCM Nguyễn Thị Quyết Tâm nhấn mạnh dự án nhà hát rất quan trọng cho sự phát triển, nâng cao đời sống người dân thành phố. Bà khẳng định đây là dự án có tầm vóc thế kỷ.

Phó chủ tịch thành phố Lê Thanh Liêm cũng nhấn mạnh tầm quan trọng của dự án này, bởi TP.HCM là đô thị văn minh, hiện đại, là đầu mối giao lưu kinh tế, văn hóa, khoa học kỹ thuật và nhiều giá trị khác nên rất cần một công trình văn hóa xứng tầm.

KTS Nam Sơn chia sẻ muốn TP.HCM phát triển thì chắc chắn Thủ Thiêm - nơi chọn để xây dựng nhà hát, cũng phải phát triển theo. Tuy nhiên, ông cho rằng việc xây dựng nhà hát không là yếu tố quan trọng giúp kích thích phát triển Thủ Thiêm, bằng việc dùng ngân sách đó đầu tư vào hạ tầng.

"Điều mà Thủ Thiêm cần ngay bây giờ, có lẽ không phải là nhà hát mà là xây cầu và hạ tầng. 1.500 tỷ có thể xây được 2-3 cầu. Xây cầu giúp kích thích Thủ Thiêm hơn nhà hát nhiều. Thủ Thiêm phát triển thì TP lợi gì? Đó là TP thoát nợ. Bởi mỗi ngày Thủ Thiêm vẫn đang phải trả 3-5 tỷ đồng tiền lãi. Giá trị vùng đất Thủ Thiêm tăng lên nhờ có hạ tầng và quy hoạch kết nối tốt, thì tự nó sẽ thu hút nhà đầu tư đến xây dựng dự án, là những người sẽ giúp trả nợ cho Thủ Thiêm. Thậm chí sau này khi Thủ Thiêm phát triển tốt, có thể thu hút đầu tư xây nhà hát bằng nguồn vốn xã hội hóa, mà TP không cần phải chi ngân sách", KTS chia sẻ quan điểm..

Ông Sơn chỉ ra ở các nước, việc xây dựng nhà hát thường được tiến hành sau cùng, khi mọi thứ ở nước họ đã ổn định. KTS dẫn chứng tại Mỹ, Trung tâm biểu diễn nghệ thuật Lincoln Center ở New York chỉ được xây khi TP này đã ổn về mặt hạ tầng, bệnh viện, trường học đầy đủ. Hay như tại Pháp, nhà hát mới Opera Bastille cũng "mọc" lên khi Paris đã ổn định về nhu cầu hạ tầng xã hội, chứ trước đây nước này không đặt vấn đề xây nhà hát mà họ tận dụng những gì đang có, bao gồm Nhà hát Opera Garnier cũ.


Thủ Thiêm cần được quy hoạch ở bờ Đông và bờ Tây. Ảnh: Lê Quân.

Xét bối cảnh TP.HCM, vị KTS cho rằng cơ sở hạ tầng của chúng ta vẫn chưa đầy đủ, Metro đang bị ngưng lại, thành phố ngập nước, bãi đậu xe thiếu, bệnh viện trường học thiếu trầm trọng,... thì cần phải xem xét lại việc có nên ưu tiên xây dựng nhà hát trong thời điểm này không?

Ông cũng nói thêm cần ưu tiên trích một phần ngân sách này cho việc gấp rút điều chỉnh quy hoạch hai bờ Đông - Tây, khu trung tâm theo một dự án duy nhất, vì ba lý do chính. Thứ nhất, hiện nay phát triển thực tế tại khu trung tâm đã không phù hợp định hướng quy hoạch. Thứ hai, việc tách quy hoạch hai bờ Đông - Tây thành hai dự án quy hoạch riêng là sai lầm chiến lược lớn, dẫn đến việc phát triển thiếu bền vững ở bờ Tây và việc bờ Đông không thu hút được nguồn vốn lớn xã hội hóa. Thứ ba, việc phê duyệt quy hoạch 2 bờ đã trên 5 năm, đã tới thời điểm điều chỉnh quy hoạch lại.

"Xét hiệu quả thì càng cần quy hoạch lại nơi đây vì đi sai hướng. Thủ Thiêm là khu đô thị mới, trung tâm tài chính nhưng giờ chỉ thấy địa ốc. Bờ Tây phải bảo tồn di sản thì chỉ toàn nhà cao tầng ven sông. Kinh phí cho việc nghiên cứu kỹ hiện trạng và điều chỉnh lại quy hoạch khu trung tâm đô thị mới trên 2 bờ Đông - Tây của sông Sài Gòn theo một quy hoạch thống nhất (gồm quy hoạch trước đây của Sasaki và Nikken Sekkei) dự kiến tốn khoảng 30-50 tỷ. Việc nghiên cứu điều chỉnh lại quy hoạch gắn kết với kế hoạch thực hiện theo các giai đoạn là rất quan trọng, vì đây là điều kiện giúp khu trung tâm TP phát triển hài hòa và bền vững hơn", KTS phân tích.

Đó là những vấn đề mà HĐND cần thảo luận trước khi xem xét lại quyết định cho việc sử dụng ngân sách 1.500 tỷ này.



KTS Ngô Viết Nam Sơn là chuyên gia quy hoạch kiến trúc tại Bắc Mỹ và Việt Nam. Ông có 30 năm kinh nghiệm làm quy hoạch và kiến trúc ở nhiều nơi trên thế giới, từng tham gia quy hoạch và thiết kế nhiều dự án lớn như Khu đô thị mới Nam Sài Gòn, Khu đô thị Bắc Hà Nội, quy hoạch Khu đô thị mới Filinvest và nhà ga sân bay quốc tế Aquino (Philippines), Phố Đông và hai bờ sông Hoàng Phố (Thượng Hải, Trung Quốc), thành phố Kyoto Thế kỷ 21 (Nhật Bản), dự án phát triển Le Havre (Montreal, Canada)…

Arthur is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it.

Ben thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things.

But when Arthur and Ben meet-cute at the post office, what exactly does the universe have in store for them?

Maybe nothing. After all, they get separated.

Maybe everything. After all, they get reunited.

But what if they can’t quite nail a first date . . . or a second first date . . . or a third?

What if Arthur tries too hard to make it work . . . and Ben doesn’t try hard enough?

What if life really isn’t like a Broadway play?

But what if it is?

From the New York Times bestselling author of Dear Martincomes this illuminating exploration of old friendships, new crushes, and the path to self-discovery.

One story.
Three sides.
No easy answers.


New York Times best-selling author Cynthia Leitich Smith turns to realistic fiction with the thoughtful story of a Native teen navigating the complicated, confusing waters of high school — and first love.

When Louise Wolfe’s first real boyfriend mocks and disrespects Native people in front of her, she breaks things off and dumps him over e-mail. It’s her senior year, anyway, and she’d rather spend her time with her family and friends and working on the school newspaper. The editors pair her up with Joey Kairouz, the ambitious new photojournalist, and in no time the paper’s staff find themselves with a major story to cover: the school musical director’s inclusive approach to casting The Wizard of Oz has been provoking backlash in their mostly white, middle-class Kansas town. From the newly formed Parents Against Revisionist Theater to anonymous threats, long-held prejudices are being laid bare and hostilities are spreading against teachers, parents, and students — especially the cast members at the center of the controversy, including Lou’s little brother, who’s playing the Tin Man. As tensions mount at school, so does a romance between Lou and Joey — but as she’s learned, “dating while Native” can be difficult. In trying to protect her own heart, will Lou break Joey’s?





A series of chance encounters leads to a sizzling new romance from the New York Times bestselling author of the On Dublin Street series. 

The universe is conspiring against Ava Breevort. As if flying back to Phoenix to bury a childhood friend wasn't hell enough, a cloud of volcanic ash traveling from overseas delayed her flight back home to Boston. Her last ditch attempt to salvage the trip was thwarted by an arrogant Scotsman, Caleb Scott, who steals a first class seat out from under her. Then over the course of their journey home, their antagonism somehow lands them in bed for the steamiest layover Ava's ever had. And that's all it was--until Caleb shows up on her doorstep.

When pure chance pulls Ava back into Caleb's orbit, he proposes they enjoy their physical connection while he's stranded in Boston. Ava agrees, knowing her heart's in no danger since a) she barely likes Caleb and b) his existence in her life is temporary. Not long thereafter Ava realizes she's made a terrible error because as it turns out Caleb Scott isn't quite so unlikeable after all. When his stay in Boston becomes permanent, Ava must decide whether to fight her feelings for him or give into them. But even if she does decide to risk her heart on Caleb, there is no guarantee her stubborn Scot will want to risk his heart on her.

There are a million reasons why Miles Hart isn't the man I should date but allow me to enumerate the top three. 
He's friends with my brother, he's a single dad, and he's a sexy, in-demand rock star. He might as well wear an off-limits, totally unavailable, and don’t-even-attempt-to-ride-this-ride sign.

And there’s one more, little itty-bitty thing -- he's never asked me on a date.

That is, until he asks me to be his plus-one when his band plays at his high school reunion. It shouldn’t be a big deal. After all, we’re just friends, and no one is giving us our own hashtag. Except me . . .

***

I have three good reasons to keep my hands off Roxy Sterling—her brother’s my business manager, my kid is the center of my world, and the last time I fell hard for a woman I was burned so badly that my interest in relationships has gone up in flames. But once I bring Roxy’s body next to mine on the dance floor, I want all the not-safe-for-work things I can't have with her.
My brain knows there’s no way for us to work, but tell that to my big mouth. Because the second she plants a hot, sexy kiss on me, I have the bright idea to ask her to keep being my plus one—turning one night into a few.

What’s the harm in spending a little more time with her and having her by my side at all these events? Nothing at first, until I learn exactly how risky we might be.





Marlena Oliveira has—mysteriously, miraculously—been given the power to heal all kinds of ailments. People around the world believe she is a saint. But her power comes at a price: she can’t go to school, she can’t have friends her own age, and she certainly can’t date.

Then she meets Finn, a boy who makes her want to fall in love. For the first time, she begins to doubt whether her gift is worth all that she must give up to keep it.




Vera Woods is at her wit’s end.

Her husband has run off with the nanny, leaving Vera with a broken heart, three very angry sons, and even less time to juggle the demands of family and her career. After her boys scare away a sixth replacement nanny, Vera is out of time off from work and desperately out of options. Still nursing an aching heart, she turns to an unlikely source for help―a manny.

Lincoln Scott is no stranger to family chaos. But rather than grow jaded, he has thrown his natural talents into building his own business―providing live-in childcare for families as a manny. The money is great and the perks are a blast, but when his family of six years moves to Germany and their plans to bring him along fall through, Lincoln is suddenly unemployed and aware of how much of himself he’s given to other people’s families.

Brought together by circumstances, Lincoln and Vera’s mutually beneficial business arrangement becomes complicated by the undeniable chemistry they share. Vera needs a manny and Lincoln needs a job, but they both may have found the very thing neither one had realized they needed―a whole lot more.



He’s a player.


He plays the bass with expert fingers. He plays women with intoxicating charm. And he’ll play me with the ease of a virtuoso.

Who better to teach me to play than the master himself?

I’m his model student, front row, pencil sharp. Pick up lines? I’ve got them. Free drinks? By the dozen. Kissing? Let me grab my chapstick.

But the most valuable lesson I’ve learned is that there’s so much I don’t know. Like why his touch sets off a chain reaction straight to my nethers. Or how I’m certain each kiss is the best I’ll ever have, until the moment his lips take mine again.

There’s so much I don’t know.

Like the fact that I’m only a bet.

But we are what we are. He’s a player, through and through.

And I’m the fool who fell in love with him.










From the show's creators comes the groundbreaking novel inspired by the Broadway smash hit Dear Evan Hansen.

Dear Evan Hansen,

Today's going to be an amazing day and here's why...


When a letter that was never meant to be seen by anyone draws high school senior Evan Hansen into a family's grief over the loss of their son, he is given the chance of a lifetime: to belong. He just has to stick to a lie he never meant to tell, that the notoriously troubled Connor Murphy was his secret best friend.

Suddenly, Evan isn't invisible anymore--even to the girl of his dreams. And Connor Murphy's parents, with their beautiful home on the other side of town, have taken him in like he was their own, desperate to know more about their enigmatic son from his closest friend. As Evan gets pulled deeper into their swirl of anger, regret, and confusion, he knows that what he's doing can't be right, but if he's helping people, how wrong can it be?

No longer tangled in his once-incapacitating anxiety, this new Evan has a purpose. And a website. He's confident. He's a viral phenomenon. Every day is amazing. Until everything is in danger of unraveling and he comes face to face with his greatest obstacle: himself.

A simple lie leads to complicated truths in this big-hearted coming-of-age story of grief, authenticity and the struggle to belong in an age of instant connectivity and profound isolation.

          Comment on Car Show Outtake: 1993 Ford Scorpio 2.9i 24v Ghia – When Brougham Met Cosworth by Daan      Cache   Translate Page      
I was a car-mad teenager when the Merkurs were being sold. A friend’s dad was seriously looking at them to replace his aging Fox-body Capri and I got to go with (my friend couldn’t care less about cars, so I got to tag along instead) Anyway I REALLY wanted one, but wasn’t nearly old enough. And I remember while we were checking out the Scorpio, multiple sales people suggesting my friends dad come look at Mercuries, or possibly a Lincoln instead of “that foreign job”... He ended up in a white XR4ti, but had even more problems with it than his Capri had (multiple trips back to the dealer on a tow truck) so that got replaced with a Mustang. I just wonder if they could have just sold Merkurs as “Fords” here, to get away from the anti-import bias I saw salesmen have. (My dad had a “Buick Opel” and I can tell you, nobody at the Buick place wanted anything to do with him or his car whenever we were there)

          Guy Trafford reviews and updates a series of changes affecting the dairy industry and how they will impact those affected      Cache   Translate Page      
ID 72387331 © Destina156 | Dreamstime.com

By Guy Trafford

Fonterra appears to have finally caught up with what ‘pundits’ have been saying for some time now “The $6.75 forecast is too high”.

Reasons’ given are the oversupply on world markets, nothing new there.

The forecast price today has been reduced to a range of $6.25 -$6.50.  Under the DIRA agreement Fonterra is required to update the farmgate price every three months. Given the last update was on August 31st ($7 down to $6.75) this announcement has come out as somewhat of an early surprise, barely a month after the last downgrade. This is still on the high side of what mostly bank economists have been saying, although, rumours are that Fonterra have had a good hedging policy in place which may be the reason they have been more bullish than what many believe is wise.

Mycoplasma bovis update

On the M Bovis front, MPI have come out with a farmer assistance package to help those farmers affected by the M Bovis outbreak. This appears to be recognition that the processes to date have not been adequate in helping farmers get to their required compensation in a timely fashion and that a more pragmatic approach has been required. $400million has been allocated to the new fund to try and smooth processes and provide more on the ground professionals to assist farmers through the processes and to develop an individual recovery plan.

Nearly half (36) of the identified 76 farms having M Bovis have been cleared and are going through or are restocked. It seems that the decision to take the opportunity to try and rid New Zealand of the disease may be bearing fruit and the correct decision was made.

The results of the bulk milk testing regime are due for release shortly and this should shed some more light on to how widespread the disease has spread. Although the testing is only one of the measures and can’t be seen as the definitive result.

Climate update

The recently released IPCC report on climate change should have provided a wake-up call to all with the drive to try and limit temperature increases by 1.5o or less being pushed as the 2o option is going to lead dramatic impacts.

As usual the focus immediately turned on agriculture, which while it does contribute nearly 49% of New Zealand’s GHGs’, the Agricultural sector hasn’t increased its total emissions by any where near the same quantity as the Energy sector (mostly transport) which has increased by +35% between 1990 – 2016. Agriculture increased by +12% for the same period. I don’t think anyone is arguing that agriculture doesn’t need to make reductions but it is interesting that farmers are pointed at as being the major problem when the major problem for increases is much closer to home for most of the general public.

Carbon price update

At the same time as the IPCC hit the news came complaints from many on the price of petrol and diesel, certainly with it approaching $2.50 (for 91 petrol) it is having an impact on most people’s budgets. However, the irony was not lost of this coming out at the same time as the climate change report.

A quick analyses of the carbon content of fuel shows that petrol produces about 2.3kg of CO2e for every litre used. The current price of carbon traded in New Zealand at the moment is $25.10 per tonne. It has been sitting at that level for about 4 weeks now after making some fairly dramatic increases earlier in the year lifting from $21 at the beginning of July. If an average vehicle covers about 25,000kms annually and does this doing 12kms per litre of fuel the cost at $25 per tonne of CO2e comes to about $120.  So currently the cost the average consumer is wearing from the price on carbon is minimal and is not going to drive a major change in behaviour.

However at $25 a tonne and if being fully liable, a 588 cow farm (using the Lincoln University farm as an example) the total cost to the farm is $62,900 per year.  So, farmers need to be aware of what conversations are taking place around future policies.  Some interesting discussions are going to be taking place in the near future.

          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.

           St Andrew’s Hospice turning pink and blue for Baby Loss Awareness Week 2018       Cache   Translate Page      
Tuesday 9 October, 2018

St Andrew’s Hospice will be illuminated in pink and blue lights on the evening of Monday 15 October to support Baby Loss Awareness Week 2018, which runs from 9 to 15 October).

The annual awareness week, now in its 16th year, is an opportunity for bereaved parents, families and friends, to commemorate babies’ lives and break the silence around pregnancy and baby loss in the UK.

Rob Baty, Premises Manager at the hospice, said: “We hope turning St Andrew’s Hospice pink and blue will spark conversations about baby loss and give local bereaved parents and families an opportunity to talk about their precious babies.”

All the buildings and landmarks turning pink and blue for Baby Loss Awareness Week 2018 will be featured on the interactive map and the Facebook album. Anyone North East Lincolnshire can share their photos of St Andrew’s Hospice on social media using the hashtag, #BLAW2018.

Dr Clea Harmer, Chief Executive of Sands (stillbirth and neonatal death charity), said: “Baby Loss Awareness Week is a unique opportunity for parents to commemorate their babies who died, and I hope bereaved families in name of town/city seeing name of the building or landmark lit up pink and blue will feel less isolated and alone in their grief.

“Pregnancy loss or the death of a baby is a tragedy that affects thousands of people every year. It is devastating for parents and families and it’s vital they get the bereavement support and care they need, for as long as they need it.”

Hello: Thank you for putting these comments together. I found you because I am trying to research judges. Now more than ever. Will you have a list for the judges running for office. There is a what I believe is the lincoln club or teaparty site that is rating judges for the whole state. I listed their selections because I could go opposite of them, however I would prefer another voice so I can be sure. I am sharing what I find with a local democrat club. Thank you, MJ

'The Walking Dead' se muere: la audiencia de la serie se hunde en el estreno de la temporada 9 #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

'The Walking Dead' fue durante años una de las series mejor valoradas por el público, algo que se traducía en unas audiencias millonarias al alcance de muy pocas. Sin embargo, su popularidad lleva un tiempo de capa caída y parece que su descenso no tiene fin, ya que el estreno de la temporada 9 apenas ha conseguido reunir ante el televisión a 6,08 millones de espectadores, el peor dato de la serie desde el sexto episodio de la segunda temporada.

Por dejarlo todo más claro, la octava temporada debutó con 11,44 millones de espectadores. Vamos, que por el camino se han quedado 5,36 millones de televidentes. La bajada es aún más acusada en los ratings, donde marcó un 2.5, el dato más bajo de la serie hasta la fecha y justamente la mitad que consiguió el inicio de la anterior temporada.

Además, ese no debería ser el único motivo de preocupación para AMC, ya que todas las temporadas comienzan con más seguimiento del que tienen en los siguientes episodios. Por ello, no sería raro que 'The Walking Dead' supere el mínimo histórico de la serie en manos hasta ahora del segundo capítulo de la primera temporada con 4,71 millones de espectadores.

Lo curioso es que todo esto no ha impedido que 'The Walking Dead' vuelva a ser la serie por cable más vista de la temporada entre los adultos entre los 18 y los 49 años. Eso sí, ahora será mucho más fácil superarla y ya es una mera cuestión de tiempo que alguna serie la destrone. Tampoco conviene olvidar las inminentes marchas de Andrew Lincoln y Lauren Cohan, algo que seguro que vuelve a atraer a algunos fans, pero tengo mis dudas sobre que vayan a quedarse. Y otros quizá simplemente pierdan el interés sin Rick y Maggie...

Tragedy has struck a family from Lincoln, Nebraska, on what was supposed to be a fun day out at their local pumpkin patch. Edward and Berna Acuna had brought their two young children, Caleb and Aura, to JK's Pumpkin Patch for some fall fun. But when a gust of wind hurled the pumpkin-shaped bounce pad that Caleb and Aura were playing on, it left Caleb dead and Aura injured -- just seconds after they parents had stepped off before them.


          The Escher String Quartet Opens Segerstrom Center's 18/19 Chamber Music Series      Cache   Translate Page      

Segerstrom Center for the Arts launches its 2018-2019 Chamber Series with the acclaimed Escher String Quartet on November 1, 2018 at 8:00 p.m. in Samueli Theater. Since its founding in 2005, the quartet has quickly garnered the reputation as one of the finest young string ensembles performing today. Their instrumental interplay, which combines technical precision with warmth and vitality, has reaped accolades nationally and abroad, and elicited invitations from Itzhak Perlman and Pinchas Zukerman to be the quartet-in-residence at their respective summer festivals. In a review, The Strad wrote, "...a level of individual technical precision and a collective musical purpose that is endlessly compelling ... Sheer brilliance." Quartet members include Adam Barnett-Hart and Danbi Um, violins; Pierre Lapointe, viola; and Brook Speltz, cello.

Single tickets start at $39 and are available now online at www.SCFTA.org, at the Box Office at 600 Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa or by calling (714) 556-2787. For inquiries about group ticket savings of 10 or more, please call the Group Services office at (714) 755-0236.

PROGRAM NOTES
Mozart: Quartet in F Major, K. 590
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's (1756-1791) Quartet in F Major marks the third of the composer's "Prussian" quartets, so named because they were commissioned by the King of Prussia, Friedrich Wilhelm II. The influence of Joseph Haydn can be seen in many of Mozart's works. Here in particular, the quartet's structure follows certain guidelines laid down by Haydn and expanded by Mozart: four movements with contrasting tempi and styles. In the first movement, Mozart creates a charming texture from an interrelated pattern of unison arpeggios and scales, before ending with a witty surprise as the music quietly vanishes. The second movement is reminiscent of siciliana, a dance form which is often pastoral and bittersweet. An unsettled quality comes in the third movement with long oscillating lines shifting harmonically, occasionally to the point of dissonance. The final movement is fun-loving and virtuosic with each instrument given a chance to burst out with a solo.

Britten: Quartet No. 1 in D Major, Op. 25
Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) originally received a commission from American patroness Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge to compose the String Quartet No. 1 in 1941. The finished quartet was first performed in Los Angeles in September of that year, earning the composer the Library of Congress Coolidge Medal for Eminent Services to Chamber Music. This quartet is remarkable for the sound-world Britten creates, the structure of its movements, the way themes reappear in different guises, and for its unexpected key relationships. The unusual sound-world is evident from the first instant of the beginning movement where the two violins and viola-set very high in their range-play a pulsing pattern. The trills and whistling runs of the second movement culminate in a violent end, with the third movement bringing a world of calm. Demanding virtuoso performers, the final movement is relentless, racing to its resounding close on a D-major chord.

Dvo?ák: Quartet in F Major, Op. 96 "American"
In the summer of 1893 Antonín Dvo?ák (1841-1904) took his family to Spillville, Iowa, for a vacation. It was there that he sketched the "American" quartet, a piece that would become the composer's most well-known chamber music composition. In this work, Dvo?ák combines elements of many cultures: Slavonic intonations, music of American Indians and African-Americans. A shimmering halo of sound opens the work and serves as the foundation for the viola's presentation of the folk-like main subject. The second movement, distinguished by the lyrical beauty of its melodic line is both calm and melancholy. The vivacious third movement is built from two contrasting strains of music: one lively and dance-like, the other more lyrical and mysterious. In a spirit of joyous optimism, the finale recalls the main theme.


BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

The Escher String Quartet has received acclaim for its expressive, nuanced performances that combine unusual textural clarity with a rich, blended sound. A former BBC New Generation Artist, the quartet has performed at the BBC Proms at Cadogan Hall and is a regular guest at Wigmore Hall. In its home town of New York, the ensemble serves as Season Artists of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (CMS), where it has presented the complete Zemlinsky Quartets Cycle as well as being one of five quartets chosen to collaborate in a complete presentation of Beethoven's string quartets. Last season, the quartet toured with CMS to China.

Within months of its inception in 2005, the ensemble came to the attention of key musical figures worldwide. Championed by the Emerson Quartet, the Escher Quartet was invited by both Pinchas Zukerman and Itzhak Perlman to be Quartet-in-Residence at each artist's summer festival: the Young Artists Program at Canada's National Arts Centre and the Perlman Chamber Music Program on Shelter Island, NY. The quartet has since collaborated with artists including David Finckel, Leon Fleischer, Wu Han, Lynn Harrell, Cho Liang Lin, Joshua Bell, Paul Watkins and David Shifrin, as well as jazz saxophonist Joshua Redman, vocalist Kurt Elling, legendary Latin artist Paquito D'Rivera and Grammy Award-winning guitarist Jason Vieaux. In 2013, the quartet became one of the very few chamber ensembles to be awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant.

The Escher Quartet has made a distinctive impression throughout Europe, performing at venues such as Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Berlin Konzerthaus, London's Kings Place, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Slovenian Philharmonic Hall, Auditorium du Louvre and Les Grand Interprètes series in Geneva. With a strong collaborative approach, the group has appeared at festivals such as Heidelberg Spring Festival, Incontri in Terra di Siena Festival, Dublin's Great Music in Irish Houses, Risør Chamber Music Festival in Norway, Hong Kong International Chamber Music Festival and Perth International Arts Festival in Australia.

The current season sees another extensive European tour, including debuts at Musik und Kunstfreunde Heidelberg, de Singel Antwerp, Budapest's kamara.hu festival and Bath Mozarfest. Alongside its growing success in Europe, the Escher Quartet continues to flourish in its home country, performing at Alice Tully Hall in New York, Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Chamber Music San Francisco, and the Ravinia, Caramoor and Music@Menlo festivals.

Currently Quartet-in-Residence at Southern Methodist University in Dallas and Tuesday Musical Association in Akron, the quartet fervently supports the education of young musicians and has given masterclasses at institutions such as the Royal Academy of Music in London and Campos do Jordão Music Festival in Brazil.

In Autumn 2016, the quartet released the third and final volume of the complete Mendelssohn Quartets on the BIS label. The set has been received with the highest critical acclaim; Volume II was listed in the Top 10 CDs of 2016 by The Guardian and hailed for its "sheer finesse" by Gramophone, while Volume III was nominated for a BBC Music Magazine Award. The quartet has also recorded the complete Zemlinsky String Quartets in two volumes, released on the Naxos label in 2013 and 2014 respectively, to accolades including five stars in The Guardian with "Classical CD of the Year", a Recommendation in The Strad, "Recording of the Month" on MusicWeb International and a nomination for a BBC Music Magazine Award.

The Escher Quartet takes its name from the Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher, inspired by Escher's method of interplay between individual components working together to form a whole.

Genres: Feature, Classic, Hardcore, All Sex
Video language: English

This Edward picks up where Parts 1 and 2 leaves off. Our adult Edward ages...and becomes F.J. Lincoln, who relives his life. There is a sad edge of loneliness to the aged Penishands. His monologue elicits a feeling of pathos, especially when Lincoln comments that no one could ever make love to him like the K.C. Williams and Buck Adams encounter he witnesses. Eddie also recalls his time with Samantha York, who, amazingly enough, manages both of his appendages in one hole. Seeing York spread 'em for a double-fisted pleasure is quite a showstopper, especially when she urges him on with heated cries of «faster» and helps him with the penetration. The aged Lincoln shows that they can still please a duet of pierced ladies (Madison and Jamie Leigh) as Moana Lisa looks on and strokes herself.

          Franciscan Crown Rosary in Black and Brown Mahogany Obsidian with St Francis/ St Anthony Center and San Damiano Cross with Peace Prayer by secondarycreations      Cache   Translate Page      

31.00 USD

The Ave and Pater beads of this seven-decade Franciscan Crown rosary are mahogany obsidian, with that stone's characteristic brown and black coloring. The Ave beads are 6mm smooth rounds and the Pater beads are 10mm-long beveled rectangles. Opaque black seed beads provide spacing.

The center and crucifix are both silver tone. The center has an image of Saint Francis with the wolf on one side and Saint Anthony holding the Christ Child on the other. The crucifix is a San Damiano cross with the last part of the Peace Prayer on the reverse: "O Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive. It is in pardoning that we are pardoned. And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life."

The measurement from the bottom of the crucifix to the middle of the rosary is 21 inches (53cm). The rosary comes in a black velvet drawstring bag and a gold foil gift box.

The Franciscan Crown Rosary commemorates the seven joys of the Blessed Virgin. Instructions for praying it are in this shop's policies, and will also be sent with the rosary.

          Viewers Continue To Walk Away From ‘The Walking Dead’, As Premier Ratings Plunge      Cache   Translate Page      

‘The Walking Dead’ has been hemorrhaging viewers for several seasons now, beginning roughly Season Six, when the show fake-killed Glenn in a cliffhanger that they refused to resolve immediately, stringing fans along for a month.  The Season Nine premiere, which aired on Sunday night, October 7th, attracted 6.1M viewers, 47% fewer than last year’s Season Eight premiere, which itself was the lowest rated debut since Season Three.  Among adults 18-49, ratings are down 51%.  These are the lowest ratings for ‘The Walking Dead’ since its initial six-episode run in 2010, before the show caught fire, becoming a sensation and at one point, the highest rated show on TV. But after ‘The Walking Dead’ fake-killed Glenn, then really killed Glenn (and Abraham), and topped that by killing Carl last season, fans just seem tired of seeing characters they love slaughtered, especially when it seems that these deaths are concocted to shock those that may have become desensitized to the constant carnage. The news that both Andrew Lincoln (Rick) and Lauren Cohan (Maggie) are leaving this season could have worked out either way.  Fans may have been enticed to watch in order to see how the show would send them off.  Or they […]

          Pass the SBJSA      Cache   Translate Page      
The Cafe Edison could have been saved. CBGBs could have been saved. Lincoln Plaza Cinemas could have been saved. Your favorite restaurant, bar, and bookshop is next--if you don't do something right now.

At long last, the Small Business Jobs Survival Act is getting a hearing. This is the moment we've all been waiting for. It's time to stop complaining and do something.



What you can do from now until the hearing on October 22:

1. Write and/or call your local Councilmembers--your messages go into the record--and tell them to pass the SBJSA:
- Fill out this easy-to-use form to email the City Council
- Or find your individual Councilmembers here and contact them directly
- Councilmember Mark Gjonaj is Chair of the Council's Small Business Committee--write or call him, too. You can also contact the members of that committee: Diana Ayala, Stephen T. Levin, Bill Perkins, and Carlina Rivera.
- Find them on Twitter and tweet your request: Pass the #SBJSA

2. Write and/or call the Council Speaker Corey Johnson and tell him to pass the SBJSA:
- Fill out this simple form, already written for you
- Or you can call or write to him directly here
- Tweet him @CoreyinNYC

3. Show up on October 22:
- At 12:00 noon, there's a rally on the steps of New York City Hall. Be there and make some noise.
- At 1:00, the public hearing begins.
- Be present! Exercise your right as a citizen of this democracy. Raise your voice in support of this bill.

4. Spread the word:
- Share this blog post on your social media--and not just once, share it multiple times between now and 10/22
-  Bring your friends and family to the rally and hearing
- Inform your local businesspeople that this hearing is happening and encourage them to show up. Tell your bodega people, your barber, your therapist, your dentist, your bartender, the people who fix your shoes and do your laundry, the folks who serve your lunch and pour your coffee. Tell them all that there is a solution, there is a protection, and we all can make it happen. Offer to bring them to the hearing with you!
- Print out and share this flyer, available in English and Spanish

- If you are not a New Yorker, you can still write and call the City Council and the Speaker. Tell them you don't want to bring your tourist dollars to a city that's full of nothing but chain stores and luxury glass towers. Tell them to pass the SBJSA.


About the SBJSA:
Legally vetted and deemed fully constitutional, the SBJSA gives existing commercial tenants a few basic rights, including: 1. the right to renew the lease, 2. a minimum 10-year extension, and 3. equal rights to negotiate a fair rent, with third-party arbitration if an agreement between tenant and landlord cannot be reached. In that case, the arbitrator may determine a reasonable increase, a decision based on multiple factors, including current fair market rates for similar properties.

-Read more about the SBJSA here and here and here.
-View the 10/22 meeting details and agenda here.

If you've been complaining about the vanishing of New York, now is your chance to change things for the better. At this point, you really have no excuse. If you do nothing, then quit complaining.

By Jim Miller In last week’s column, I wrote that “the future of public education and the heart and soul of progressive California” were at stake in the Superintendent of Public Instruction race. What makes this race so important is that it represents an attempt by moneyed interests and forces on the right to play in Democratic politics through the use of stealth and dishonesty. Indeed, if you like the way the Lincoln Club intervenes in and tries to upset the Democratic apple cart in races here in San Diego, you’ll love how the right is trying to game California’s Democratic voters in this contest. It’s so bad, that the state party came out with this extraordinary assertion last May leading up to the primary in response to Tuck’s refusal to disavow his Republican allies:

Элеонора Фортескью Брикдейл (1871-1945) - один из крупнейших художников-иллюстраторов (также она обращалась к масляной живописи и акварелям) поздней викторианской эпохи, пусть ее работы и не так хорошо известны, как творчество ее современников-мужчин. Она испытала сильное влияние прерафаэлитов, но более поздние ее работы ближе к Арт Нуво. 
 
Художница иллюстрировала детcкие книги, в том числе - «Королевские идиллии» Альфреда Теннисона.

Элеонора была младшей дочерью адвоката из Lincoln's Inn. Изучала искусство в Crystal Palace School of Art, затем - в школе при Королевской Академии, где в 1896 г выиграла приз за оформление общественного здания. В следующем году её работы впервые появились на Летней выставке Королевской Академии. Там же в последующие годы художница регулярно экспонировала свои работы. Ее картины были также замечены в Королевском Обществе Акварелистов, но из-за присущей работам декоративности художница не была регулярным участником выставок.

          Lincoln, Nebraska Best-of-State CBD Manufacturer and Hemp Oil Reseller (www.Pur7Products.com) Announces Reason #50 to Buy Pur7 CBD: Legal in ALL 50 States      Cache   Translate Page      

Lincoln, NE -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/09/2018 -- Unique to industrial hemp is the high amounts of phytocannabinoids sometimes referred to as CBD which is an abbreviation for cannabidiol, a prominent naturally-occurring cannabinoid component found in cannabis sativa. Cannabidiols comprises up to 40% of the plant. CBD is "a cannabinoid devoid of psychoactive effect." After THC (?9-tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is by far the most studied natural cannabinoid.

Phytocannabinoids are harvested from industrial hemp which is high in CBD and low in THC. Hemp is the male counterpart to the female flowering plant: marijuana which is high in THC and low in CBD. Industrial hemp is naturally high in CBD and naturally low in THC, whereas most marijuana is just the opposite (high THC, low CBD). Industrial hemp is considered Cannabis sativa L., although advanced testing has cultivated higher yielding CBD hemp strains.
https://www.purseven.com/about-cbd/

Through a combination of these unique cultivars, advanced plant genetics, and cutting-edge growing techniques, an exceptionally high percentage of CBD can be produced naturally and consistently in the hemp plant. When natural CBD hemp oil is produced from these hemp cultivars—which can be grown legally in dozens of countries and imported to the USA legally—it doesn't make legal or practical sense to obtain CBD oil from marijuana. Industrial Hemp is also now being grown in the USA and distributed throughout the country in a variety of products without THC*.

THE BOTTOM LINE - YOU NEED THIS NOW - WHAT IS CBD?
Each one of us are born with an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in our bodies which regulates every metabolic process in the body, such as pain sensation, immunity, stress management, temperature regulation, sleep, and more. Just like muscles need protein to become stronger, your Endocannabinoid System also needs nutrients (called cannabinoids) to function properly to reduce pain, inflammation, anxieties, or other maladies in the body. That's where Cannabidiol (or CBD) comes in - a very healthy nutrient. According to many researchers, CBD may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered.

Ingredients: 400 mg Full Spectrum Hemp CBD Oil Purzorb™, Water, Vegetable Stearate, Monk Fruit (Siraitia Grosvenorii), Xylitol and Stevia Rebaudiana (sweeteners), Natural Flavors and Natural Colors, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate (preservative) and Potassium Sorbate (preservative).

Not all Cannabis is created equal | Male Plants = Hemp  |  Female Plants = Marijuana |
( cbd vs. marijuana )
Industrial hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products. Commercially it has been refined into paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, cosmetics, nutritional supplements and animal feed. Although industrial hemp and the cannabis drug, marijuana are both members of the Cannabis sativa species, they have distinctive biochemical compositions and uses.

There are 509 studies registered on .ClinicalStudies.gov for CBD. Clinical Trials are an important step in discovering new treatments for breast cancer and other diseases as well as new ways to detect, diagnose, and reduce the risk of disease. Clinical trials show researchers what does … and does not … work in people. Clinical Trials also help researchers and doctors decide if the side effects of a new treatment are acceptable when weighed against the benefits offered by the new treatment.
Researchers do not know what the results of Clinical Trials will be. (If they did, they wouldn't have to do the trials.) This uncertainty can make it hard to decide if you want to participate in Clinical Trial. In rare cases, Clinical Trials volunteers have been hurt by the treatment or procedure being tested. At the same time, hundreds of thousands of people have been helped and are alive because other people chose to participate in a trial that resulted in a new, more effective treatment. While Clinical Trials are important, the choice to participate in one is very personal and depends on your unique situation. As with any breast cancer treatment, you and your doctor need to weigh the benefits against the risks and decide what's best for you. https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?cond=&term=CBD&cntry=&state=&city=&dist=

Clinical Trials are just one type of research that's done before a new treatment becomes available to people. New medicines must first be discovered, purified, and tested in preclinical trials before researchers even think about Clinical Trials. According to the American Cancer Society, about 1,000 potential medicines are tested before one makes it to Clinical Trials. On average, a new medicine to treat breast cancer has been studied for at least 6 years (and sometimes many more) before a Clinical Trial on it is started.

There are 6,000 studies registered on .PubMed.gov for CBD. PubMed is a free search engine accessing primarily the MEDLINE database of references and abstracts on life sciences and biomedical topics. The United States National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health maintains the database as part of the system of information retrieval. Find INFO on CBD here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=CBD

From 1971 to 1997, MEDLINE online access to the MEDLARS Online computerized database primarily had been through institutional facilities, such as university libraries. PubMed, first released in January 1996, ushered in the era of private, free, home- and office-based MEDLINE searching. The PubMed system was offered free to the public starting in June 1997.

As of 11 July 2017, PubMed has more than 27.3 million records going back to 1966, selectively to the year 1865, and very selectively to 1809; about 500,000 new records are added each year. As of the same date, 13.1 million of PubMed's records are listed with their abstracts, and 14.2 million articles have links to full-text (of which 3.8 million articles are available, full-text for free for any user). Approximately 12% of the records in PubMed correspond to cancer-related entries, which have grown from 6% in the 1950s to 16% in 2016. Other significant proportions of records correspond to "Chemistry" (8.69%), "Therapy" (8.39%) and "Infection" (5%).

FAQ's:

-HOW DOES Pur 7 COMPARE TO OTHER CBD OIL products?
Because Pur 7 is produced with Purzorb™ technology and is 85% bio-absorbable, it is 14 times more efficient than raw CBD oil (6% bioavailable), and 3.4 times more efficient than those produced with Liposomes (18-24% bioavailable), which means that not only is it more effective and fast-acting, it is less expensive in the long run because you need less per dose comparatively speaking (i.e. 1 serving of Pur 7 equals 14 servings of raw CBD oil of equal CBD content).

-WILL THC SHOW UP IN A BLOOD TEST?
While Pur 7's Full Spectrum Hemp CBD oil products meet or exceed all Federal regulations for industrial hemp including THC content, they have not been systematically studied for effects on drug testing. Please consult your physician before using products containing CBD hemp oil.

-IS CBD THE SAME THING AS POT?
No, but they are related. Both CBD and marijuana come from the cannabis sativa plant, but the CBD used in Pur 7 is produced from industrial hemp (pure Kentucky industrial hemp to be exact), which comes from the male plant, while marijuana is produced from the female plant. Click here for more information about the differences between industrial hemp and marijuana.

-IS CBD LEGAL?
Pur 7 Hemp CBD oil is US Farm Bill Compliant (Section 7606), and is not a controlled substance.

-DOES pur 7 CONTAIN THC?
Full spectrum industrial hemp CBD oil often contains trace amounts of THC. All Pur 7 products meet or exceed FDA regulations including THC content.

-WILL I GET HIGH USING PUR 7?
No! Our full spectrum hemp CBD oil is devoid of psychoactive effects, and is non-addictive.

-WHAT ELSE IS IN PUR 7?
Pur 7 is a premium, full spectrum hemp CBD oil, which means in addition to CBD it contains other naturally occurring phytocannabinoids and terpenes which are critical to activating the effects of CBD in your body. It also means that it is not a distillate, isolate or chemical version of CBD.

-IS pur 7 SAFE TO USE WITH MY PETS?
Pur 7 has not been studied for safe use with pets at this time. Please do not use Pur 7 with dogs as it contains Xylitol, which dogs cannot metabolize. We are currently working on solutions for pets.

-IS Pur 7 TESTED FOR QUALITY AND INGREDIENT PURITY?
Pur 7 conforms to the highest industry standards for testing and purity.

"I played college baseball and always had the worst back and shoulder pain. I was scared of using opioids so I just dealt with the pain until I was introduced to Pur7 and it helped immediately! Amazing product."

Drake A. ( 5 Star Rating ***** )
"I first heard about CBD and the wonderful benefits that it has, but never got around to try it until I was introduced by a friend and was immediately hooked. Pur 7 is the best I have had since that day."

Pur7 is the ONLY company to scientifically find a reliable way to make Full Spectrum CBD oil-soluble, stable, effective with 85% absorption rate and delicious.  Pur 7 is the true innovative leader in CBD products.  At Pur7, our goal is to share the life-changing benefits of hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD) with every individual and empower people to share the same joyous message with people in their local communities.  Pur7 has an international, worldwide distribution and a strong client-based following along with an experienced team of executives who are passionate ambassadors for the company.  PUR7 built this massive following by offering some of the highest-quality CBD hemp oil products. 

Cannabidiol or CBD is one of over a hundred cannabinoids discovered within the cannabis plant. These cannabinoids interact with the body's natural endocannabinoid system, which regulates functions in the body like sleep, appetite, and immune response. The endocannabinoid system aims to create homeostasis within our system to promote overall balance. PUR7's Hemp Oil products feed the endocannabinoid system with a wide range of healthy cannabinoids.  PUR7 believes that everyone deserves a life full of fun and wellness.  SUSTAINABLE:  Our CBD hemp oil is sourced from hemp grown in beautiful Kentucky where PUR7 crops are free of pesticides, free of herbicides, or chemical fertilizers. Because hemp grows quickly, sometimes producing two or more harvests a year, and uses very little water, it is environmentally sustainable crop with a number of valuable uses.  NATURAL and BOTANICAL:  Although PUR7's formulation is driven by science, our products themselves are scientifically crafted from all natural botanical ingredients, including pure CBD hemp oil.  SCIENCE DRIVEN:  PUR 7 hemp oil is put through stringent Lab Tests and FDA cGMP manufacturing guidelines in order to ensure safety, purity, consistency and reliability.  You can trust PUR7!

          Erasing History, Diplomacy, Truth      Cache   Translate Page      

One of the reasons that countries fail is that collective memory is continually destroyed as older generations pass away and are replaced by new ones who are disconnected from what came before. Initially, the disconnect was handled by history and by discussions around family tables. For example, when I was a kid there were still grandparents whose fathers had fought for the Confederacy. They had no slaves and owned no plantations. They fought because their land was invaded by Lincoln’s armies. Today if Southern families still know the facts, they would protect their children by not telling them. Can you … Continue reading

The Sheffield, Ashton-under-Lyne and Manchester Railway was an early British railway company which opened in stages between 1841 and 1845 between Sheffield and Manchester via Ashton-under-Lyne. In conjunction with the proposed Sheffield and Lincolnshire Junction Railway and Great Grimsby and Sheffield Junction Railway, it was renamed the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway in 1847.
The railway line ceased to carry trains in 1983 when the local Sheffield–Huddersfield train service was diverted via Barnsley.

The line has now been converted to a 'rails to trails' cycling and walking trail. This forms part of the Trans Pennine Trail. This cycling and walking trail connects the west coat at Southport to the east coast at Hornsea. This part of the route is on the central section from Leeds to Chesterfield.

          Jazz this week: Ghost Note, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Joey Alexander, Lettuce, Cornet Chop Suey, and more      Cache   Translate Page      
This week's calendar of live jazz and creative music in St. Louis features a nice mix of headlining performers, offering styles from funk to big band to vintage jazz to mainstream and more. Let's go to the highlights...

Wednesday, October 10
Ghost Note, the instrumental funk band founded by Snarky Puppy percussionists Robert “Sput” Searight and Nate Werth (pictured, top left), will perform at the Old Rock House.

Incorporating influences from Afrobeat, hip-hop, and more, they're touring in support of their second album Swagism, which was released in April of this year.

Also on Wednesday, Jazz St. Louis' "Whitaker Jazz Speaks" series of free lecture/discussions with music continues with Marc Myers, who writes about jazz for the Wall Street Journal and other publications, expounding on "1950: The Year Jazz Changed on Two Coasts."

Myers' presentation will be paired with performances of music associated with Dave Brubeck, the Modern Jazz Quartet, and Gerry Mulligan, plus Miles Davis’s complete Birth of the Cool.

Thursday, October 11
Saxophonist Paul DeMarinis leads a trio in a free concert for the Jazz at Holmes series at Washington University, and the Jim Widner Big Band will play a one-nighter at Jazz St. Louis. 

Also on Thursday, singer Joe Mancuso continues his weekly gig featuring different special guests at  50/Fifty Kitchen, and guitarist Dave Black performs at The Pat Connolly Tavern.

Friday, October 12
Trumpeter Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (pictured, bottom left) to provide the music for the annual fundraiser at the Sheldon Concert Hall. (Some concert-only tickets still may be available; contact the Sheldon's box office for the latest information.)

This year marks the 30th anniversary of JaLCO's founding, and they've released two recordings in 2018 - one documenting various guest star performances with the orchestra over the years, and the other capturing an evening backing singer/actor Ruben Blades. While those guest stars won't be at the Sheldon, the band's deep catalog of original and historic arrangements, developed over the last three decades, should offer the gala-goers ample possibilities for enjoyable listening.

Also on Friday, Grammy-nominated, teenage piano phenom Joey Alexander returns for the first of two nights of performances at Jazz St. Louis; funk/jazz band Lettuce is in town to play at the Atomic Cowboy Pavilion; and singer Anita Jackson will do the late show at The Dark Room

Saturday, October 13
Singer Wendy Gordon and friends, including singer Renee Smith and singer/bassist Eugene Johnson will present a matinee performance of "Different Shades Of The Blues" at the Ozark Theatre.

Later that night, keyboardist Mo Egeston will be at The Dark Room leading his trio, which will be joined this week by guest vocalist Chrissy Renick.

Sunday, October 14
Singer and bassist Janet Evra plays for brunch at The Dark Room, while Miss Jubilee will entertain at Evangeline's.

Also on Sunday, the St. Louis Jazz Club presents Cornet Chop Suey playing traditional jazz and swing in a matinee concert at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel St. Louis - Westport

Tuesday, October 16
Trumpeter Jim Manley and guitarist Rick Haydon play at Evangeline's.

          Bancada ruralista renova mais da metade dos mandatos, mas sofre baixas importantes      Cache   Translate Page      
bancada ruralista - fpa  (Foto: Agência Brasil )

Uma das representações mais fortes no Congresso Nacional, a bancada ruralista conseguiu manter mais da metade dos parlamentares que se candidataram nessas eleições. É o que mostra levantamento feito por Globo Rural, com base na relação de integrantes do grupo, divulgada no site oficial da Frente Parlamentar Agropecuária (FPA), e nos resultados oficiais do Tribunal Superior Eleitoral (TSE).

A pesquisa considerou apenas candidatos a mandatos de deputado federal ou senador, excluindo da contagem os suplentes e candidaturas a cargos fora do legislativo federal, como governador ou deputado estadual. Ao todo, 206 componentes do colegiado disputaram as eleições parlamentares, sendo 110 eleitos. De 193 deputados federais que se candidataram, 55,44% (107) permanecem, seja na Câmara ou Senado. (veja lista completa abaixo)

>> Agropolos dariam vitória a Bolsonaro já no primeiro turno

A maior parte se manteve onde está. Caso de Luiz Nishimori (PR-PR), relator do Projeto de Lei 6299, que muda regras de avaliação e fiscalização de agrotóxicos, e da deputada Tereza Cristina (DEM-MS), atual presidente da Frente Parlamentar Agropecuária (FPA). Já Luiz Carlos Heinze (PP-RS) muda de endereço. Termina essa legislatura como deputado e na próxima será senador. O mesmo aconteceu com Izalci Lucas (PSDB-DF) e Irajá Abreu (PSD-TO), filho da ex-ministra da Agricultura, Kátia Abreu (PDT-TO), candidata a vice-presidente na chapa de Ciro Gomes, terceira colocada no primeiro turno presidencial.

Entre os senadores da FPA, apenas três conseguiram se manter. Desses, Ciro Nogueira (PP-PI) e Sérgio Petecão (PSD-AC) renovaram seus mandatos por mais oito anos. José Medeiros (PSD-MT) fez o caminho inverso de Heinze, Lucas e Abreu. Será deputado federal a partir da próxima legislatura.

Quem sai

Mas o resultado das urnas também trouxe baixas a lamentar nos almoços de terça-feira, quando a Frente Parlamentar Agropecuária se reúne, em Brasília (DF), para discutir sua estratégia. Congressistas com longo histórico de atuação como representantes da agropecuária nas duas Casas legislativas não foram reeleitos ou ganharam eleições para outros cargos.

Entre os principais nomes, está Ana Amélia Lemos (PP-RS), que candidatou-se a vice-presidente na chapa de Geraldo Alckmin e ficou sem mandato para a próxima legislatura. Outro nome de peso é Ronaldo Caiado (DEM-GO), que também deixa Brasília pelos próximos quatro anos. Foi eleito em primeiro turno para governar Goiás.

Quem também pode ficar fora é o tucano Antônio Anastasia - embora não apareça entre os integrantes mais atuantes na bancada ruralista - que disputa o segundo turno para o governo de Minas Gerais. Se for derrotado, no entanto, ainda tem mais quatro anos de mandato a cumprir como senador. Assim como Rose de Freitas (MDB-ES), que perdeu a eleição para o governo capixaba, vencida por Renato Casagrande (PSB).

Entre os que não renovaram o mandato de senador, estão Valdir Raupp (MDB-RO), Valdemir Moka (MDB-MS) e Benedito de Lira (PP-AL). Romero Jucá (MDB-RR) é outro “medalhão” que figura como integrante da bancada ruralista e não estará no Congresso Nacional a partir do próximo ano.

Na Câmara dos Deputados, a Frente Parlamentar da Agropecuária também teve baixas relevantes. Casos de Valdir Colatto (MDB-SC) e Carlos Melles (DEM-MG). Outro que ficou fora foi Osmar Serraglio (PP-PR). Silas Brasileiro (PP-MG), presidente do Conselho Nacional do Café (CNC), suplente na atual legislatura, não foi eleito.

Ex-presidente da FPA, o deputado Nilson Leitão concorreu a uma vaga no Senado pelo PSDB de Mato Grosso. Não foi eleito. É do Estado, no entanto, que chega à Câmara um deputado que deve se tornar voz atuante na bancada: o ex-secretário de Política Agrícola, Neri Geller, eleito pelo PP.

Pelo menos até o fim dessa legislatura, a FPA reúne 262 parlamentares, entre deputados (234) e senadores (28), conforme a relação oficial. Alguns integrantes não estão exercendo seus mandatos parlamentares por ocuparem outros cargos, como ministérios ou prefeituras. Os 26 Estados e o Distrito Federal têm pelo menos um representante no grupo.

O colegiado tem integrantes de 23 partidos. As maiores bancadas internas atualmente são as do MDB (38 parlamentares), PP (34) e PSDB (27). O PSL, que disputa a Presidência da República com Jair Bolsonaro, tem três. O PT, que tenta voltar ao poder com Fernando Haddad, tem sete.

尊敬的宗教领袖们、霍金斯参议员、尊贵的弗罗里达国会代表团的成员、先生们:你们的欢迎让我感受到无法言表的温暖。今天在这里我感到非常愉快。

一、美国的政治与宗教

全国福音派联会的人士以属灵和人道的工作而名闻遐迩。如果我不先向你们表达我的感激之情,我就太过轻慢了。感谢你们的祈祷。南希和我经常能感受到你们的临在。相信我,对我们来说,你们非常重要。

有一天,在白宫的东厅举行会议时,有人问我,是否注意到那些在外面一直为总统祈祷的人群。我说:“是的,我注意到了。我能感受到这一点。我相信代祷的作用。”但我又情不自禁地要告诉那个问话者——实际上也是对在场的所有人说,如果有时候他在祈祷时得不到响应,那是因为我当时已经在上帝面前了。亚伯拉罕·林肯说:“当我深信自己走投无路时,我总是要向上帝跪下呼求。”我想我理解林肯说这话时的感受。怀着对这次聚会的愉快心情和美好感受,我要转入政治话题。我不知道为什么,但那个日程安排让我想起一个故事。

有一天,一位福音派牧师和一个政客来到天堂的大门前。圣彼得办完了所有的必要手续后,领着他们到各自的住处。他先领着他们来到一个小单间,里面只有一张床、一把椅子和一张桌子,说这是为牧师准备的。看到这个情形,政客有点惴惴不安,不知道等待他的将会是什么。当圣彼得领着他来到一所富丽堂皇、仆佣成群的大宅子时,他简直不相信自己的眼睛。

他禁不住问彼得:“等等,有没有搞错?我怎么会有这样的寓所,而那个虔诚圣洁的人只得到一个单间?”彼得回答道:“你得明白,这里是物以稀为贵。我们已经有了数不清的牧师,而你是来这里的第一位政客。”

但我来并不是要为这些陈词烂调助兴的。而是要告诉你们,包括本人所在的部门,许许多多担任公职的人都是敬畏上帝、甘于奉献、品格高贵的人中之杰。是的,我们需要你们的帮助,以使我们得以铭记那些将我们第一次带入政治舞台的理念与原则。这些理念与原则的基础是对自由和个人权利的信守,而这种信守本身又是建立在深刻的体察上:即只有在热切探求和谦卑地领受上帝祝福的地方,自由才会繁荣兴旺。

美国人对于民主的试验即是以这一洞察为基础。它的发现是国父们的伟大胜利,威廉·佩恩说:“如果我们不愿受治于上帝,则我们必受治于暴君。”在诠释不可剥夺的人权时,杰弗逊说:“上帝在赐予我们生命的同时也赐予了我们自由。”华盛顿说:“在导致政治昌盛的各种意向和习惯中,宗教和道德是必不可少的支柱。”

最后,当探究美国何以如此伟大和富有创造力的秘密时,托克维尔这位对于美国民主最为敏锐的观察家雄辩地指出:“当我走进美国的教堂,听到它那闪耀着公义之火的布道时,我才真正明白了美国何以如此伟大和天赋非凡。美国人是虔信上帝的。而一旦美国不再虔诚了,它也将不再伟大。”

今天能与你们这些通过保持美国人的虔诚而使美国继续伟大的人士相聚,我感到非常愉快。只有通过你们和其他成千上万人的工作和祈祷,才能使我们在这个危机四伏的世纪有望幸存下来,并使自由这一人类最美好的希望生机勃勃。

我希望你们知道,我们的行政部门是由一种政治哲学推动的,这一政治哲学在你们、你们的家庭、教会、邻里和社区中间发现了美国的伟大:即各种制度均致力于鼓励和培植诸如关心他人和尊重上帝之下法治之类的价值观。

二、世俗主义思潮对传统价值观的冲击

现在,你们想必与我一样清楚,正是这些价值观使我们与流行于当下许多人中间的态度大相径庭,或与他们格格不入。他们奉行一种现代化的世俗主义,将我们文明赖以立基的价值观视如粪土,尽管这些价值观坚实可靠并经过时间的检验。不管他们出于何种善意,他们的价值体系与大多数美国人所持的立场截然不同。虽然他们宣称,他们正使我们从对过去的迷信中解放出来,但他们从事的工作却是借助政府的统治和威权来监控我们。有时候他们的嗓门似乎比我们大,但他们从未赢得多数。

那种调门拔高的例子在最近华盛顿的一场争论中显而易见。自从我卷入这场争论以来,我就期待着能听到美国年轻人父母们的想法。他们究竟愿意向政府移交多少他们作为人之父母的特权?

让我尽可能简明扼要地说一下这个事例。一个动机纯正、对于日益增加的少年非法生育和堕胎现象深感关切的公民团体不久前成立了一个全国性的医疗诊所网络,向那些不到法定年龄的女孩子们提供帮助,并希望能减轻她们所面临的困境。我要说,我并不对他们的意图吹毛求疵。然而,在这项意愿良好的努力中,这些诊所居然决定在未征求她们父母意见的情况下,向这些女孩子提供节育建议、药物和方法。

几年来,联邦政府一直向这些诊所提供资助。在提供资助时,国会要求采取一切措施以使父母的参与最大化。然而,医生在开药或教授方法时,并没有事先征得父母的同意,也没有事后向他们说明。他们就是这样帮助那些被称为“性活跃”而不是“乱交”的女孩子们防止非法生育或堕胎的。

是的,我们已经责令那些接受联邦拨款的诊所必须要向父母们通报他们所提供的帮助。而一份全国性的大报却在编者按中杜撰了一个“告密规则”来对我们进行指控,批评我们侵犯了年轻人的“隐私权”。一位法官最近发布了一项禁令,阻止我们实施这项措施。我看过有关这个话题的电视讨论,专栏作家们在里面一本正经地谴责我们的“错误”,但似乎没人提及在性问题上的道德成分。

难道犹太-基督教传统全都错了吗?难道我们必得相信那些如此神圣的东西只与肉体相关而不会造成感情和心理上的伤害吗?父母们难道没有权利向他们的子女提出忠告和建议以避免他们犯下有可能贻恨终生的大错吗?

我们政府中的许多人都想知道父母们在家里是如何思考这一由政府造成的局面的。我们会在法庭抗争下去。父母的权利以及家庭的权利优先于那些以华盛顿为基地的官僚们和社会工程师们的权利。

三、学校里的宗教及言论自由

但是,反对告知父母仅是企图淡化传统价值观、甚至废除美国民主根本原则的众多事例中的一例而已。自由的繁荣有赖于宗教的兴旺以及人们对上帝之下法治的尊重。当国父们通过第一修正案时,他们是在谋求使教会免于政府的干预。他们从未打算在政府和宗教信仰之间树起一道敌视之墙。

我们的历史和政府中处处都有关于此一事实的证据。独立宣言中提到上帝的次数不少于四次。“我们信靠上帝”这句话就镌刻在我们的钱币上。最高法院以宗教祈祷来启动它的司法程序、国会议员们以祈祷来揭开会议的序幕、而我也碰巧相信美国的学童们享有与最高法院大法官和国会议员们同样的特权。

去年,我向国会递交了一个宪法修正案,要求恢复公立学校的祈祷活动。而在这届国会开会期间,两党中有越来越多的人支持这项修正案,我呼吁国会尽快通过该案,以使我们的孩子们能够祈祷。

也许你们中的一些人看过最近发生的Lubbock学校案,在此案中,一个法官宣布,学校给予有宗教信仰的学生和无宗教信仰的学生同等待遇其实不合宪的,即使聚会是在学生课余时间进行也是如此。第一修正案从未打算要求政府去歧视宗教演讲。

Denton和Hatfield参议员已经在国会提交了一项法案,禁止对宗教性的学生演讲形式予以歧视。这项立法将足以恢复公立学校学生在宗教方面的言论自由。我希望国会能够迅速地考虑这些议案。靠着你们的帮助,我想我们很有可能在今年就获得这一宪法修正案。

四、胎儿的生命权

十年前,最高法院的一项决定逐一抹去了50个州关于保护胎儿权利的法规条款。有求必应式的堕胎每年至少要夺去150万胎儿的生命。终结这一悲剧的人类生命法案迟早有一天要在国会通过,不达目的,我们决不罢休。除非有证据证明胎儿不是一个生命体,否则它的生命权、它的自由和它追求幸福的权利就必须得到保护。

你们可能还记得,当有求必应的堕胎刚开始时,许多人(这其中也包括你们中的许多人)都警告说,这一措施会使人们不再尊重生命,而被用于使堕胎合法化的哲学前提最终也会被用来为诸如杀婴或安乐死等其他蔑视生命神圣的行为做辩护。不幸的是,这些警告一一验证了。去年就有一家法院允许饿死一个残疾儿童。

我已经指示卫生及公共事务部向每一家美国卫生保健机构讲清楚,1973通过的康复法案保护所有的残疾人,反对任何基于残疾而产生的歧视,包括儿童。我们还采取了进一步的措施,要求每一个接受联邦拨款的婴幼儿保健机构必须在显眼位置始终张贴布告:“基于歧视原因未对残疾婴幼儿进行喂食和照顾的行为均为联邦法律所禁止。”机构还必须列出一个24小时的免费电话号码,使护士及其他人能及时报告侵害事件,以拯救婴儿的生命。

另外,最近由伊利诺斯州的众议员HenryHyde提交的立法不仅增加了对堕胎公款报销的限制,而且还关注杀婴问题。我敦促国会举行听证会并通过该法案,以保护所有孩子们的生命权,包括那些残疾儿童的生命权。

五、美国的宗教复兴和道德责任

现在我肯定,你们有时会感到灰心丧气,但也许你们所做的比你们所知的还要好。美国正经历一次精神上的觉醒,那为美国的虔诚和伟大奠基的传统价值观正在复兴。

一个设在华盛顿的研究理事会最近做了一个调查,得出结果是美国人要比其他国家的人民虔诚得多。95%的被调查者表示信仰上帝,绝大多数人相信十诫在他们的生活中具有现实意义。另一个研究发现,压倒性多数的美国人不赞成通奸、少年性交、色情描写、堕胎和毒品。这些如出一辙的研究表明人们深切尊重家庭纽带和宗教信仰的重要性。

我想我们今天讨论的课题一定会在国家的政治日程中发挥关键作用。这是国会首次就祈祷和堕胎问题进行公开而认真的辩论,这本身就是一项巨大的进步。我重申:美国正处在精神觉醒和道德复兴之中。今天我要用《圣经》中的话说:“唯愿公平如大水滚滚,使公义如江河滔滔。”

很明显,我所谈及的这种崭新的政治和社会共识中的大部分立基于一种对美国历史的正面评价上,它以我们国家的历史成就为荣。但我们必须永远不要忘记,没有哪个政府计划会导致人的完美。我们知道,生活在这世界上就意味着要与哲学家所谓的邪恶或神学家所称的罪性做斗争。

世界上存在着罪与邪恶,而圣经和主耶稣呼召我们用一己之力去与之抗争。我们国家同样也拥有一份必须予以对付的邪恶流毒。这片土地的荣耀之处就在于它有能力超越我们曾有过的道德罪恶。例如,少数族裔的公民为着争取平等权利而展开的长期抗争一度引发了分裂与内战,而现在却成为全体美国人为之自豪的一个亮点。我们决不会回到过去。在这个国家,我们不会容忍种族主义、反犹太主义或其他各种形式的民族及种族仇恨。

我知道你们一直和我一样,对于一些散布固执偏见的讨厌团伙的复活而忧心忡忡。请用你们洪亮的布道和坚定的立场抨击我们中间这些令人憎恶的团伙。上帝赐予我们的诫命清晰而直率:“要爱邻人如己。”

无论我们曾经有过什么样的不幸插曲,任何客观的观察家都会对美国的历史持积极的看法。我们的历史就是希望得以实现、梦想得以成真的动人故事。特别是在本世纪,美国使自由的火炬经久不息,不仅是为了我们自己,还为了全世界成千上万的人民。

六、两大阵营在价值观上的根本对立

由此我将谈及今天的最后一个话题。在我作为总统举行的第一次记者招待会上,在回答一个直率的问题时,我曾指出:苏联领导人是不错的马列主义者,他们开诚布公地宣称,他们所承认的唯一道德就是推动他们的事业,就是世界革命。我想我应该指出,这里我只引用了他们的精神导师列宁的话,他在1920年曾说,他们摒弃一切源于超自然观念的道德——那是他们给宗教下的定义——或与阶级学说无关的观念。道德完全服务于阶级斗争的需要。一种东西是否道德,取决于它是否为消灭旧的、剥削性的社会秩序和统一无产阶级的事业所必需。

是的,我想许多有影响的人士拒绝接受苏联教条的这一基本观点体现了对于极权主义本质的历史性抗拒。我们在30年代就目睹了这种抗拒。今天我们依然到处可见这种抗拒。

但这不意味着我们应该自我孤立并且拒绝寻求与他们的谅解。我打算尽一切努力去使他们相信我们的和平意愿,我要提醒他们,是西方在四十年代和五十年代拒绝利用其在核技术方面的垄断地位以扩张领土,同样是西方在今天提议削减50%的战略弹道导弹,以及销毁全部的陆基中程核导弹。

但是同时,他们也必须明白,我们永远不会拿我们的原则和准则讨价还价。我们永远不会出让我们的自由。我们永远不会背弃对上帝的信仰。我们也永远不会停止谋求一种真正的和平。但我们不能保证美国所支持的这些东西能够通过某些人士提出的所谓核冻结方案得到维护。

真实情况却是,现在的冻结将会成为一种非常危险的欺诈,因为它仅仅是和平的幻象。实际上我们必须通过实力来寻求和平。

只有当我们能够冻结苏联的全球野心时,我才会同意某种冻结。在当前水平的武器冻结将使苏联在日内瓦与我们进行认真谈判的动机不复存在,事实上它会断送我们提出的削减主要军备的机会。更有甚者,他们会通过冻结来达成他们的目的。

一次冻结给予苏联的奖赏就是它庞大而且无与伦比的军事积累。却会阻止美国及盟国的国防现代化,使我们日趋老化的军事力量弱不禁风。一种诚实的冻结会就限制的系统和数量、确保有效性核查和执行的措施等问题进行广泛的先行谈判。而现在提出的冻结实际上不可能进行核查。这样一种努力会使我们完全偏离目前进行的达成实质性削减的谈判。

几年前,我在加利福尼亚州一个人数众多的集会上听到一位年轻人的演讲。他是位年轻的父亲并且在娱乐圈名声大噪。在冷战期间,共产主义和我们自己的生活方式成为许多人萦绕心头的一个问题。当时他所谈的就是这个题目。突然,我听到他说:“我爱我的女儿们甚过一切。”我自言自语道:“哦,别那么说。你不能那么说,别说那个。”但是我低估了他。他接着说道:“但我宁可看到我的孩子们现在怀着对上帝的信念阖然长逝,也不愿她们在共产主义的阴影下成长,并且有朝一日带着对上帝无所信仰的心态死去。”

听众当中也有好几千年轻人。他们站起身来,欢呼雀跃。他们立即就明白了他的话中所包含的深刻真理,即物质与精神何者是真正重要的。

是的,让我们为所有那些生活于极权主义黑幕中的人祈祷。祝愿他们发现认识上帝的喜乐。但是在他们认识上帝之前,我们必须警觉,只要他们继续鼓吹国家的至高无上、宣扬国家对于个体的万能、并预言它将最终统治全人类,他们就是现代世界的邪恶中心。

七、对宗教人士的告诫

鲁益师在他令人难忘的《地狱来鸿》中写道:当今最大的邪恶并非是在狄更斯所热衷描绘的、肮脏的“罪恶之窟”中炮制出来的,它甚至不是在集中营和劳改营犯下的,那些地方只是邪恶发作的最终结果。当今最大的邪恶是在整洁豪华、温暖明亮的办公室里构思和安排的;是由那些衣着光鲜、言谈斯文的人鼓动、支持、散布和记录的。

结果,由于这些人言谈斯文、由于他们有时流利自如地畅谈手足之情与和平、由于他们能象某些以前的独裁者一样总是在“最后才提出领土要求”,一些人就会要求我们相信他们的表白并且顺从他们的非份之想。但是,如果历史教会了我们什么,那就是对对手一味妥协或一厢情愿实属愚不可及。它意味着背叛我们的过去、虚掷我们的自由。

因此,我敦促你们大声反对那些将美国置于军事和道德劣等地位的人士。我一直相信你们这些教会人士才是鲁益师书中那个老魔鬼的眼中钉。因此,在你们讨论核冻结提议时,我要提醒你们谨防傲慢的诱惑,那是一种洋洋自得地宣称自己凌驾于一切之上、并对双方各打五十大板的诱惑。它无视一个邪恶帝国的历史和勃勃野心,径自宣布军备竞赛不过是一场巨大的误会,由此而使自己游离于对与错、善与恶之外。

本届政府在尽力使美国保持强大和自由,当我们正在为真正和可靠地削减核武库、并在上帝的帮助下最终彻底消灭核武器而进行谈判时,有些人会使你们撤回对我们努力的支持,我请求你们抵制这种诱惑。

虽然美国的军事实力是重要的,但我在这里要补充一点:我始终确信,当前为世界而进行的抗争从来不取决于炸弹或火箭,也不取决于军队或军事力量。我们今天所面临的真正危机是精神上的;从根本上说,它是对道德意志和信仰的检验。

惠特克"钱伯斯——这位希斯-钱伯斯间谍案中的主角、这位以其自身的变节而见证了我们时代可怕创伤的人——曾写道,某种程度上,西方世界的危机在于它对上帝漠不关心,从而配合了共产主义将人与神疏离开来的尝试。他又说道,马列主义实际上是人类第二种最为古老的信仰,第一种信仰则是伊甸园中的诱惑之音:“你们会像神一样。”

他写道:西方能够回应这种挑战,“但这只有假定西方对上帝及天赋自由的信念与共产主义对人的信念一样伟大才行。”

我相信我们能够迎接这种挑战。我相信共产主义是人类历史上一个悲惨而诡异的篇章——即使这一章已经临近终结。我相信这个是因为我们探求自由的力量源泉不是物质上的,而是精神上的。而且由于它是无尽的,所以它必然对那些奴役同类的人形成威慑并最终战胜他们。因为以赛亚书这样写道:“疲乏的,他赐气力;无力的,他加力量。但那些仰望主的人,必重新得力;他们必像鹰一样展翅上腾;他们奔跑,决不困倦。”

是的,改变你们的世界。我们的国父之一潘恩曾说:“我们拥有重塑世界的内在力量。”我们能做到这一点,让我们协力同心来完成这项仅凭一己之力无法完成的事业。

愿上帝保佑你们,谢谢大家。

里根发表“邪恶帝国”演讲 

1983年3月18日,里根在佛罗里达州奥兰多市的美国福音教徒联合会(National Association of Evangelicals,NAE)上发表演讲。这次演讲就是里根大名鼎鼎的“邪恶帝国”演讲(“Evil Empire”Speech)
此次演讲中,里根首次提出“Evil Empire”(邪恶帝国)这一个词。
部分人认为,在1980年代的中后期,这个词语划下冷战的转捩点,美国因而占领了道德高地,使之在全球事务上更能牵制苏联。
并且,这次演讲,即邪恶帝国演讲,和另外两个著名演讲分别是“Zero Option”(零选择)还有“Star Wars”(战争开始)一起象征着,美国在冷战中形势由守转攻,冷战进一步升级。
罗纳德·威尔逊·里根(Ronald Wilson Reagan)于1911年2月6日生于美国伊利诺伊州坦皮科城。美国杰出的右翼政治家,曾担任第33任加利福尼亚州州长,第40任(第49-50届)美国总统(1981-1989年)。他也是一名伟大的演讲家。在踏入政坛前,里根也担任过运动广播员、救生员、报社专栏作家、电影演员、电视节目演员、励志讲师,并且是美国影视演员协会(Screen Actors Guild)的领导人。他的演说风格高明而极具说服力,被媒体誉为“伟大的沟通者”(The Great Communicator)。历任总统之中,他就职年龄最大。他是历任总统中唯一一位演员出身的总统,被美国的权威期刊《大西洋月刊》评为影响美国的100位人物第17名。

RONALD REAGAN, “EVIL EMPIRE SPEECH” (8 MARCH 1983)
[1] President Reagan: Thank you…[Applause]…Thank you very much…Thank you very much…[Applause subsides]…Thank you very much…and, Reverend Clergy all, and Senator Hawkins, distinguished members of the Florida congressional delegation, and all of you:
[2] I can’t tell you how you have warmed my heart with your welcome. I’m delighted to be here today.
[3] Those of you in the National Association of Evangelicals are known for your spiritual and humanitarian work. And I would be especially remiss if I didn’t discharge right now one personal debt of gratitude. Thank you for your prayers. Nancy and I have felt their presence many times in many ways. And believe me, for us they’ve made all the difference.
[4] The other day in the East Room of the White House at a meeting there, someone asked me whether I was aware of all the people out there who were praying for the President. And I, had to say, “Yes, I am. I’ve felt it. I believe in intercessionary prayer.” But I couldn’t help but say to that questioner after he’d asked the question that–or at least say to them that if sometimes when he was praying he got a busy signal, it was just me in there ahead of him. [Laughter] I think I understand how Abraham Lincoln felt when he said, “I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go.”
[5] From the joy and the good feeling of this conference, I go to a political reception. Now, [Laughter] I don’t know why, but that bit of scheduling reminds me of a story–[Laughter]–which I’ll share with you:
[6] An evangelical minister and a politician arrived at Heaven’s gate one day together. And St. Peter, after doing all the necessary formalities, took them in hand to show them where their quarters would be. And he took them to a small, single room with a bed, a chair, and a table and said this was for the clergyman. And the politician was a little worried about what might be in store for him. And he couldn’t believe it then when St. Peter stopped in front of a beautiful mansion with lovely grounds… many servants, and told him that these would be his quarters.
[7] And he couldn’t help but ask, he said, “But wait, how–there’s something wrong–how do I get this mansion while that good and holy man only gets a single room?” And St. Peter said, “You have to understand how things are up here. We’ve got thousands and thousands of clergy. You’re the first politician who ever made it.” [Laughter and Applause]
[8] But I don’t want to contribute to a stereotype. [Laughter] So I tell you there are a great many God-fearing, dedicated, noble men and women in public life, present company included. And yes, we need your help to keep us ever mindful of the ideas and the principles that brought us into the public arena in the first place. The basis of those ideals and principles is… a commitment to freedom and personal liberty that, itself is grounded in the much deeper realization that freedom prospers only where the blessings of God are avidly (mispronounces and corrects himself) sought and humbly accepted.
[9] The American experiment in democracy rests on this insight. Its discovery was the great triumph of our Founding Fathers, voiced by William Penn when he said: “If we will not be governed by God, we must be governed by tyrants.” Explaining the inalienable rights of men, Jefferson said, “The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time.” And it was George Washington who said that “of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.”
[10] And finally, that shrewdest of all observers of American democracy, Alexis de Tocqueville, put it eloquently, after he had gone on a search for the secret of America’s greatness and genius–and he said: “Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the greatness and the genius of America. America is good. And if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.” [Applause]
[11] Well, I’m… [Applause] ..Well, I’m pleased to be here today with you who are keeping America great by keeping her good. Only through your work and prayers and those of millions of others can we hope to survive this perilous century and keep alive this experiment in liberty, this last, best hope of man.
[12] I want you to know that this administration is motivated by a political philosophy that sees the greatness of America in you, her people, and in your families, churches, neighborhoods, communities–the institutions that foster and nourish values like concern for others and respect for the rule of law under God.
[13] Now, I don’t have to tell you that this puts us in opposition to, or at least out of step with, a–a prevailing attitude of many who have turned to a modern-day secularism, discarding the tried and time-tested values upon which our very civilization is based. No matter how well intentioned, their value system is radically different from that of most Americans. And while they proclaim that they’re freeing us from superstitions of the past, they’ve taken upon themselves the job of superintending us by government rule and regulation. Sometimes their voices are louder than ours, but they are not yet a majority. [Applause]
[14] An example of that vocal superiority is evident in a controversy now going on in Washington. And since I’m involved, I’ve been waiting to hear from the parents of young America. How far are they willing to go in giving to government their prerogatives as parents?
[15] Let me state the case as briefly and simply as I can. An organization of citizens, sincerely motivated, deeply concerned about the increase in illegitimate births and abortions involving girls well below the age of consent, some time ago established a nationwide network of clinics to offer help to these girls and, hopefully, alleviate this situation. Now, again, let me say, I do not fault their intent. However, in their well-intentioned effort, these clinics decided to provide advice and birth control drugs and devices to underage girls without the knowledge of their parents.
[16] For some years now, the federal government has helped with funds to subsidize these clinics. In providing for this, the Congress decreed that every effort would be made to maximize parental participation. Nevertheless, the drugs and devices are prescribed without getting parental consent or giving notification after they’ve done so. Girls termed “sexually active”–and that has replaced the word “promiscuous”–are given this help in order to prevent illegitimate worth/birth (quickly corrects himself) eh or abortion.
[17] Well, we have ordered clinics receiving federal funds to notify the parents such help has been given. [Applause] One of the nation’s leading newspapers has created the term “squeal rule” in editorializing against us for doing this, and we’re being criticized for violating the privacy of young people. A judge has recently granted an injunction against an enforcement of our rule. I’ve watched TV panel shows discuss this issue, seen columnists pontificating on our error, but no one seems to mention morality as playing a part in the subject of sex. [Applause]
[18] Is all of Judeo-Christian tradition wrong? Are we to believe that something so sacred can be looked upon as a purely physical thing with no potential for emotional and psychological harm? And isn’t it the parents’ right to give counsel and advice to keep their children from making mistakes that may affect their entire lives? [Slight crescendo of voice and emphasis–Long Applause]
[19] Many of us in government would like to know what parents think about this intrusion in their family by government. We’re going to fight in the courts. The right of parents and the rights of family take precedence over those of Washington-based bureaucrats and social engineers. [Applause]
[20] But the fight against parental notification is really only one example of many attempts to water down traditional values and even abrogate the original terms of American democracy. Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged. [Applause] When our founding fathers passed the First Amendment, they sought to protect churches from government interference. They never intended to construct a wall of hostility between government and the concept of religious belief itself. [Murmurs of agreement, Applause]
[21] The evidence of this permeates our history and our government. The Declaration of Independence mentions the Supreme Being no less than four times. “In God We Trust” is engraved on our coinage. The Supreme Court opens its proceedings with a religious invocation. And the members of Congress open their sessions with a prayer. I just happen to believe the schoolchildren of the United States are entitled to the same privileges as [Continues over applause] Supreme Court Justices and Congressmen.
[22] Last year, I sent the Congress a constitutional amendment to restore prayer to public schools. Already this session, there’s growing bipartisan support for the amendment, and I am calling on the Congress to act speedily to pass it and to let our children pray. [Applause]
[23] Perhaps some of you, read recently about the Lubbock school case, where a judge actually ruled that it was unconstitutional for a school district to give equal treatment to religious and nonreligious student groups, even when the group meetings were being held during the students’ own time. The First Amendment never intended to require government to discriminate against religious speech. [Applause]
[24] Senators Denton and Hatfield have proposed legislation in the Congress on the whole question of prohibiting discrimination against religious forms of student speech. Such legislation could go far to restore freedom of religious speech for public school students. And I hope the Congress considers these bills quickly. And with your help, I think it’s possible we could also get the constitutional amendment through the Congress this year. [Applause]
[25] More than a decade ago, a Supreme Court decision literally wiped off the books of fifty states, statutes protecting the rights of unborn children. Abortion on demand now takes the lives of up to one and a half million unborn children a year. Human life legislation ending this tragedy will someday pass the Congress, and you and I must never rest until it does. [Applause] Unless and until it can be proven that the unborn child is not a living entity, then its right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness must be protected. [Applause]
[26] You…You may remember that when abortion on demand began, many, and indeed, I’m sure many of you, warned that the practice would lead to a decline in respect for human life, that the philosophical premises used to justify abortion on demand would ultimately be used to justify other attacks on the sacredness of human life–infanticide or mercy killing. Tragically enough, those warnings proved all too true. Only last year a court permitted the death by starvation of a handicapped infant.
[27] I have directed the Health and Human Services Department to make clear to every health care facility in the United States that the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 protects all handicapped persons against discrimination based on handicaps, including infants. [Applause] And we have taken the further step of requiring that each and every recipient of federal funds who provides health care… services to infants must post and keep posted in a conspicuous place a notice stating that “discriminatory failure to feed and care for handicapped infants in this facility is prohibited by federal law.” It also lists a twenty-four-hour; toll-free number so that nurses and others may report violations in time to save the infant’s life. [Applause]
[28] In addition, recent legislation introduced by–in the Congress–by Representative Henry Hyde of Illinois not only increases restrictions on publicly financed abortions, it also addresses this whole problem of infanticide. I urge the Congress to begin hearings and to adopt legislation that will protect the right of life to all children, including the disabled or handicapped.
[29] Now, I’m sure that you must get discouraged at times, but there you’ve done better than you know, perhaps. There’s a great spiritual awakening in America, a [Applause]…a renewal of the traditional values that have been the bedrock of America’s goodness and greatness.
[30] One recent survey by a Washington-based research council concluded that Americans were far more religious than the people of other nations; 95 percent of those surveyed expressed a belief in God and a huge majority believed the Ten Commandments had real meaning in their lives, and another study has found that an overwhelming majority of Americans disapprove of adultery, teenage sex, pornography, abortion, and hard drugs, and this same study showed a deep reverence for the importance of family ties and religious belief.
[31] I [Applause]…I think the items that we’ve discussed here today must be a key part of the nation’s political agenda. For the first time the Congress is openly and seriously debating and dealing with the prayer and abortion issues–and that’s enormous progress right there. I repeat: America is in the midst of a spiritual awakening and a moral renewal. And with your biblical keynote, I say today, “Yes, let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream.”
[32] Now, [Applause]…obviously, much of this new political and social consensus I’ve talked about is based on a positive view of American history, one that takes pride in our country’s accomplishments and record. But we must never forget that no government schemes are going to perfect man. We know that living in this world means dealing with what philosophers would call the phenomenology of evil or, as theologians would put it, the doctrine of sin.
[33] There is sin and evil in the world, and we’re enjoined by Scripture and the Lord Jesus to oppose it with all our might. Our nation, too, has a legacy of evil with which it must deal. The glory of this land has been its capacity for transcending the moral evils of our past. For example, the long struggle of minority citizens…for equal rights, once a source of disunity and civil war is now a point of pride for all Americans. We must never go back. There is no room for racism, anti-Semitism, or other forms of ethnic and racial hatred in this country. [Long Applause]

The announcement was made last Thursday at her performance of Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto in D with the New York Philharmonic at David Geffen Hall. Previous recipients include Joshua Bell, Gil Shaham, Midori and Sarah Chang, among others. "My goal will continue to be to enlarge and enrich the repertoire of the violin by commissioning and performing works of the 20th and 21st centuries," Josefowicz said. "My intention is to help create new masterworks for future violinists to study and perform for audiences. It is so necessary that the great works of today be heard." Josefowicz, 40, is a recipient of a 1994 Avery Fisher Career Grant and a 2008 MacArthur ‘genius’ grant. Known for her advocacy and fine performances of modern works, she has premiered violin concertos by many composers including John Adams, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Colin Matthews and Steven Mackey. She was nominated for Grammy awards for her 2016 recording of John Adams' Scheherazade.2 with the St Louis Symphony, conducted by David Robertson; as well as her 2014 recording of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Violin Concerto with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by the composer.

The Paleontology of Charles Dickens
Charles Dicken's Bleak House was the first English novel to mention a dinosaur. The first paragraph of the first chapter starts: "Michaelmas Term lately over, and the Lord Chancellor sitting in Lincoln’s Inn Hall. Implacable November weather. As much mud in the streets as if the waters had but newly retired from the face of the earth, and it would not be wonderful to meet a Megalosaurus, forty feet long or so, waddling like an elephantine lizard up Holborn Hill. Smoke lowering down from chimney-pots, making a soft black drizzle, with flakes of soot in it as big as full-grown snow-flakes — gone into mourning, one might imagine, for the death of the sun. Dogs, undistinguishable in mire. Horses, scarcely better; splashed to their very blinkers. Foot passengers, jostling one another’s umbrellas in a general infection of ill-temper, and losing their foot-hold at street-corners, where tens of thousands of other foot passengers have been slipping and sliding since the day broke (if the day ever broke), adding new deposits to the crust upon crust of mud, sticking at those points tenaciously to the pavement, and accumulating at compound interest."

          Năm ‘cuộc chiến sống còn’ chưa từng thấy của tổng thống Trump:      Cache   Translate Page      
Mỹ không cần "cải tổ" hay "công khai hóa" vì làm thường xuyên
 - Có nhà báo hỏi Tổng thống Reagan là nước Mỹ có ý định thực thi "cải tổ" và "công khai hóa" như Gorbachev đang theo đuổi hay không. Câu trả lời đại ý là: Gorbachev đang làm cái việc mà đáng ra các nhà lãnh đạo Liên Xô phải làm từ lâu….
Cuộc chiến thứ Ba:  Cuộc chiến chống lại các thiết chế đã định hình và sự "trì trệ" của nước Mỹ.
Nếu chỉ đọc qua về sự "trì trệ" của nước Mỹ, người đọc dễ liên tưởng đây là câu chuyện hoang tưởng, nhưng đó lại phản ánh một phần sự thật.
Nước Mỹ từ lâu vốn được xem là quốc gia năng động bậc nhất, là nơi tập trung các trường đại học, các trung tâm nghiên cứu hàng đầu thế giới, là nơi có nhiều nhà khoa học đoạt giải Nobel nhất thế giới, nơi luôn khuyến khích sự sáng tạo, các ý tưởng lạ. Tóm lại, nước Mỹ được nhìn nhận là quốc gia luôn thay đổi và biết cách "tự làm mới" mình liên tục.
Còn nhớ câu chuyện giữa những năm 1980, cách đây quãng ba chục năm, khi đó Liên Xô dưới sự lãnh đạo của Mikhail Gorbachev đã đưa ra ý tưởng "cải tổ" và "công khai hóa" ("perestroika” and “glasnost") đã làm thế giới phát sốt, còn nước Mỹ thì bị lo qua mặt. Khi đó có nhà báo hỏi Tổng thống Ronald Reagan là nước Mỹ có ý định thực thi "cải tổ" và "công khai hóa" như Gorbachev đang theo đuổi hay không thì câu trả lời của Reagan, đại ý là: Gorbachev đang làm cái việc mà đáng ra các nhà lãnh đạo Liên Xô phải làm từ lâu, nhưng họ đã không làm và để vấn đề tích tụ lại. Mỹ không cần "cải tổ" hay "công khai hóa" vì đây là việc Mỹ làm thường xuyên.
Mỹ không cần 'cải tổ' hay 'công khai hóa' vì làm thường xuyên
Bốn vị Tổng thống được tạc tượng, từ trái qua: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln.
Kết quả là "cải tổ" và "công khai hóa" của Gorbachev thiếu một tầm nhìn và cách làm bài bản đã đưa Liên Xô và hệ thống Xã hội chủ nghĩa Đông Âu đến chỗ sụp đổ, còn khẩu hiệu "làm cho nước Mỹ vĩ đại trở lại" (Make America Great Again) của Reagan cùng chính sách kinh tế Reaganomics và "làm mới lại nước Mỹ ngay trên đất Mỹ" đã giúp nước Mỹ hùng mạnh trở lại trên mọi phương diện vào đầu những năm 1990.
Quay trở lại nước Mỹ trước khi ông Trump lên cầm quyền. Từ góc độ của một nhà kinh doanh thành đạt trên đỉnh cao sự nghiệp và góc nhìn mới của một chính trị gia Trump cảm thấy hết sức "thất vọng" vì nước Mỹ đang trở nên già nua, sơ cứng, có quá nhiều "trì trệ", sức ỳ, quá nhiều rào cản. Bên cạnh đó, quá nhiều thế lực hùng mạnh trong giới chính trị, kinh doanh, truyền thông... sẵn sàng liên kết, ra tay bóp nghẹt các ý tưởng mới để bảo vệ đặc quyền của mình, mà như từ ngữ ta hay dùng là lợi ích nhóm.
Lợi ích nhóm ở nước Mỹ hiện quá hùng mạnh, bám rễ quá sâu nên các nhóm này sẵn sàng liên kết, tiến hành "chiến tranh tổng lực" chống lại Trump và toàn bộ chính quyền của ông ta đến cùng. Ngược lại, để thực hiện cam kết tranh cử đưa nước Mỹ "vĩ đại trở lại" Trump, với tác phong và cách làm "phi truyền thống" cũng lao vào ăn thua đến cùng với nhóm lợi ích.
Đỉnh điểm là ngày 16/8/2018 vừa qua, cùng lúc 350 tờ báo trên khắp nước Mỹ, trong đó có những tờ lâu đời và nổi tiếng như Boston Globe, the New York Times, Washington Post, Philadelphia Inquirer... đồng loạt đăng xã luận, công kích chính quyền Trump, coi cá nhân và Chính quyền Trump là mối đe dọa lớn nhất đối với tự do báo chí - vốn từng được coi là một trụ cột quan trọng trong xã hội Mỹ cùng với tam quyền phân lập.
Đây là điều chưa từng xảy ra trong lịch sử và xã hội Mỹ từ xưa đến nay. Nói đến đặc quyền của báo chí Mỹ thì phải kể đến câu chuyện cách đây 36 năm, chỉ với tờ Washington Post đi tiên phong, cùng các phóng sự của hai nhà báo điều tra gạo cội là Carl Bernstein và Bob Woodward đã góp phần "hạ bệ" Tổng thống đương nhiệm Richard Nixon trong vụ Watergate. Với sức mạnh của báo chí tới mức có thể "làm nên" hay "làm tiêu tùng" (make or break) sự nghiệp của một Tổng thống như vậy nên các chính trị gia thường chọn cách "dĩ hòa vi quý" thay vì làm "mếch lòng" báo chí.

Tuy nhiên, Tổng thống Trump thì khác, chọn ngay cách đối đầu "không cùng phe”, điển hình là CNN, Washington Post, the New York Times. Ông Trump sử dụng còn bài nhất quán ngay từ đầu là coi ba tập đoàn truyền thông lớn này cùng các bài báo chỉ trích cá nhân và chính quyền của mình là "báo chí của phe Dân chủ" và chuyên đăng "tin giả" (fake news)! Nói cách khác, Trump đánh trực tiếp vào tính chính danh và sự khách quan của báo chí "không cùng phe".
Nhìn một cách công bằng, sự ra đời của Internet, và cùng với nó là các mạng xã hội như Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, YouTube... trong những năm qua đã làm giảm đáng kể quyền lực của các "ông lớn" truyền thông trong khi các ông lớn này vẫn ngủ quên trên đỉnh cao quyền lực thời hoàng kim. Mặt khác, sự phân hóa Xã hội Mỹ về mọi mặt, từ câu chuyện ranh giới giàu nghèo, thu nhập, đẳng cấp, sự hình thành giới chính trị gia "xa lông" ngày càng tách dời tầng lớp "thấp cổ bé họng"... dưới tác động đa chiều của Cách mạng công nghiệp 4.0, toàn cầu hóa đã tác động mạnh, làm mất đi sự trung lập vốn có và khiến báo chí cũng phân làn rõ rệt. Trước đây thì rất khó phát hiện, nhưng nay chỉ cần cầm tờ báo đọc qua vài bản tin hoặc bật xem TV vài phút là có thể nói tương đối chính xác thiên kiến chính trị của tờ báo hoặc hãng một truyền thông nào đó.
Do đó, khá dễ hiểu là 350 tờ báo cùng lúc đả kích Trump nhưng lại ít nhiều đều chia sẻ các quan điểm chính trị như nhau. Và như thường lệ, chỉ vài dòng "Tweets" với 50 triệu người theo dõi mỗi ngày, Trump dễ dàng "vô hiệu hóa" các xã luận trên. Trước đây khi mạng xã hội chưa phát triển, các Tổng thống, chính trị gia thường đứng im chịu trận. Nhưng nay, Trump cũng lên tiếng "đòi" được đối xử công bằng, không bị báo chí tấn công một chiều!
Tuy nhiên, chủ đích cuối cùng của Tổng thống Trump là "vô hiệu hóa" sự chỉ trích của đối thủ, khiến ông ta có vị thế áp đảo trong giới truyền thông, từ đó gây ảnh hưởng, truyền tải các thông điệp chính trị.
Trong lĩnh vực kinh tế, quốc phòng, quản trị đất nước.... ông Trump cũng có những cách làm "lạ đời", giúp tiết kiệm hàng chục triệu giờ công lao động hoặc hàng tỷ USD tiền đóng thuế của người dân, doanh nghiệp, cụ thể là:
- Tổng thống Trump ngay khi nhậm chức đã yêu cầu Boeing phải xem xét và đàm phán lại Hợp đồng mà Chính quyền Tổng thống Obama đã ký trước đó để mua hai máy bay "Không lực số một" (Air Force One) giao hàng vào năm 2024 vì giá quá cao. Boeing đứng trước tình thế phải đàm phán lại nếu không có nguy cơ bị hủy hợp đồng. Kết quả là cặp máy bay nay chỉ còn giá 3,9 tỷ USD, từ giá "trên trời" là 5,3 tỷ USD, tức giảm khoảng 25% giá ban đầu.
- Tương tự như vậy, ông Trump và Lầu Năm Góc cũng buộc hãng Lockheed Martin, nhà cung cấp máy bay chiến đấu F-35 thế hệ thứ năm phải đàm phán lại và giảm giá từ 95 triệu USD/1 chiếc F-35 mà Lầu Năm Góc trả năm 2017, xuống còn 89 triệu USD/1 chiếc cho lô hàng giao trong năm 2018 và 80 triệu USD/1 chiếc năm 2020.
Chỉ qua hai vụ đàm phán đình đám, thông điệp của ông Trump đối với giới doanh nghiệp rất đơn giản: Ngay cả những hàng hóa mang tính biểu tượng của Tổng thống, đến bảo vệ an ninh quốc gia chính quyền cũng sẵn sàng xem xét, thậm chí hủy đơn hàng nếu cần. Dó đó, các hãng lớn nếu muốn làm ăn với chính phủ, muốn có tương lai phải cải tiến, nâng cao chất lượng và giảm giá thành.
- Ngoài việc đơn giản hóa sắc luật thuế liên bang, ngày 30/1/2017 Tổng thống Trump còn ký một sắc lệnh của Tổng thống quy định, từ nay trở đi bất cứ một quy định, hay điều lệ mới nào của liên bangi ra đời thì cơ quan đệ trình buộc phải vô hiệu hóa hai hai quy định hay điều lệ cũ. Mục đích của việc này là tránh biến các cơ quan công quyền thành bộ máy quan liêu, ra các "quy định trên trời", tạo thuận lợi tối đa cho cuộc sống, sinh hoạt của người dân, cũng như hoạt động của doanh nghiệp.
Trên đây chỉ là một số ít ví dụ, nhưng nó cho thấy cuộc chiến chống lại thiết chế đã định hình và gắn với nó là lợi ích nhóm với đủ loại biến tướng là hết sức khó khăn, phức tạp. Hơn nữa, đây lại là cuộc chiến nội bộ nơi các đồng minh lẫn đối thủ đều minh tường các điểm mạnh, yếu của nhau và sẵn sàng ra đòn dứt điểm đối phương bất cứ khi nào khi có thời cơ.

          The Walking Dead season 8: 50 nerdy facts from the Blu-rays      Cache   Translate Page      
Louisa Mellor
Oct 10, 2018

We scoured the disc commentaries and Blu-ray extras on The Walking Dead season 8 release for nerdy titbits about the show. Spoilers…

Warning: contains spoilers for The Walking Dead season eight.

The Walking Dead season eight Blu-ray disc set has comparatively fewer episode commentaries than usual – just three in total, for episodes three, four and sixteen, all of which feature crew and no members of the cast. Perhaps the actors were too busy this year to sit in recording booths and reminisce about on-set pranks and how hot Atlanta gets in summer. Instead, former showrunner Scott Gimple is joined by writer Matt Negrete, director Dan Liu, and new showrunner Angela Kang to talk us through episode three Monsters, episode four Some Guy, and the season finale Wrath.

There are also three featurettes, one in memoriam of the characters who died during the season, one commemorating the life of Carl Grimes, and one focusing on the toll taken on the characters during the season’s all-out war. A special Making Of extra provides the best insights, revealing behind-the-scenes action and on-set cast and crew interviews across several episodes of the season. Director and special effects guru Greg Nicotero is always good value, and gives some fascinating explanations of his team’s work.

Having scoured the commentaries and the disc extras, here are fifty nerdy details fans might enjoy knowing about The Walking Dead season eight…

1. The season eight premiere, Mercy, was The Walking Dead’s one hundredth overall episode. To mark the occasion, the gas station scene in which Rick and Carl encountered Siddiq mirrored shot for shot the show’s very first scene in which Rick encountered the young girl Walker. Addy Miller, who played that Walker, returned as a grown-up Walker wearing a very similar outfit as a nod to it.

2. Mercy was jointly dedicated to the memories film director George Romero, and stunt performer John Bernecker, who tragically died on set in July 2017.

3. In the season eight premiere, when Rick’s group attack the Sanctuary, Andrew Lincoln shot thousands of rounds. Cut was called but Lincoln didn’t hear it because of all the noise he was enjoying making with the guns.

4. When the RV was exploded in the premiere, Andrew Lincoln and director Greg Nicotero both ceremoniously pushed the button at the same time to bid adieu to an old friend.

5. In real life, the Sanctuary building is only two storeys tall and the rest of the windows above that level are added by CG extension.

6. In episode one, to plan out the look of Rick’s attack on the Sanctuary, a bunch of Matchbox toy cars were painted white and arranged to knit together intricately, creating the shield wall effect of the armoured cars.

7. A repeated visual motif in season eight was Rick Grimes looking at himself in the mirror. He does it multiple times in the season, notably after killing baby Gracie’s father in Monsters, and before going to face Negan in Wrath. The idea, says Angela Kang, was that Rick was beginning not to recognise himself and worrying that he could be becoming irredeemable.

8. The bear traps in which the Walkers and Dr Carson are caught in Dead Or Alive Or were made of lightweight aluminium painted to look like iron. The springs that snap them closed are very small so that they close without exerting much force. The actors who become trapped by them are wearing shin protectors too, which are digitally removed.

9. Greg Nicotero describes season eight Morgan repeatedly in terms of movie monsters – as Freddy Krueger, or Jason Voorhees, or the Terminator, or “the monster in a John Carpenter movie.” Morgan just keeps coming, “straight-up killing” in season eight. The idea was that he would isolate himself and become more of a cold-blooded killer throughout the season, necessitating his move away from the gang and to Fear The Walking Dead.

10. The fight between Jesus and Morgan in Monsters was described to both as like a bouncer (Jesus) trying to calm down a drunk guy (Morgan) outside a bar – subduing him without actually wanting to hurt him.

11. When the characters cover themselves in Walker blood in order to pass unnoticed through herds, the actors call the process “gutting up”. The fake blood used is mixed with strips of flexible burgundy and yellow-tinted silicone to look like “meat flaps” says Greg Nicotero.

12. Episode four Some Guy is based on issue 118 of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead comic, which was the first ever story in the comic books told using flashback caption narration.

13. When Ezekiel had to limp in Some Guy, Khary Payton put a big rock in his shoe so that it would genuinely hurt him to put any weight on his foot. A sound operator had told Payton that Andy Lincoln had done the same for a limping scene in season five, so Payton decided to use the same trick.

14. Macsen Lintz, the young actor who plays the Kingdom’s Henry, is the real-life brother of Madison Lintz, the young actor who played Carol’s daughter Sophia in seasons one and two.

15. In the run-up to season eight, showrunner Scott Gimple and actor Khary Payton discussed what a big influence Shakespeare’s Henry V had on Ezekiel’s character. It wasn’t a link Gimple had made when writing, but it was an important one for Payton, who saw similarities between the importance King Ezekiel places in faith, and the faith required of his followers, in his preparation for the season.

16. The scene of Ezekiel emerging from the pile of dead bodies in Some Guy was influenced by photographs taken post-battle on World War II battlegrounds

17. There’s a shot of Ezekiel crawling backwards along the ground, pursued by walkers in Some Guy, which was inspired by arcade game Galaga “with our hero scooting back first and the Walkers coming up the screen,” vertically, says director Dan Liu.

18. Melissa McBride had a foot injury while filming Some Guy, her Die Hard episode which involved lots of action and crouching. Nevertheless, she still did her own stunts in the outdoor shootout scene with the Saviors. “Basically we’re just trying to hold onto her as long as we can until she becomes the next John McClane,” says Scott Gimple.

19. Cooper Andrews, who plays The Kingdom’s Jerry, has been trained in martial arts since he was a child.

20. Scott Gimple describes Gunther, the Savior who takes Ezekiel at gunpoint in Some Guy, as “essentially Dwight Shrute [from The Office: An American Workplace] after things went bad. The idea was that the King would be almost bested by “kind of a wormy guy,” and “somebody you couldn’t possibly respect as an adversary.” Gunther is played by comedian Whitmore Thomas.

21. The ‘gag’ in which we see through the two halves of Gunther after Jerry’s axe attack was inspired by Geof Darrow’s cover for Hard Boiled #3 in which you can see through a bullet hole in someone’s head.

22. During Carol’s tense gunfire scene with the Saviors, she was surrounded by gnats who kept flying into her mouth during her lines. Melissa McBride only stopped in one take to spit them out.

23. McBride became so affected by Carol’s speech to Ezekiel when she and Jerry rescue him in Some Guy, that she broke down in tears during the rehearsal and they had to wait for her to compose herself before shooting.

24. The car chase in which Rick and Daryl pursued the Saviors with the machine gun cargo was intended to be an homage to 1980s action cinema, says director Dan Liu, with an Indiana Jones reference in the jumping from one vehicle to the other.

25. The Walkers eating Shiva are actually eating barbecued chicken.

26. The extended fight scene between Rick and Negan in the abandoned building was inspired by a fight in John Carpenter’s They Live.

27. The Ace of Spades lighter Rick uses to set Lucille on fire was last seen being used by Glenn in season four. It’s fitting, says Greg Nicotero, as Lucille was the weapon used to kill Glenn in the season seven premiere.

28. To make the VFX on Lucille visible in low-lighting during Rick and Negan’s fight, the bat was covered in glowsticks, earning it the nickname “the disco bat”. To set it on fire, Silica fabric was rolled up to use as a wick and fuel was sucked up it for the flames.

29. In the series finale scene of Gabriel praying in Alexandria’s burnt-out church, actor Seth Gilliam was wearing contact lenses that covered his entire eye to give the illusion of his character’s partial blindness. That meant he couldn’t cry as required for the scene, so those tears are all faked with eye drops.

30. The hand bindings in which the Savior prisoners of war were tied with were specially designed like an escapologist’s for a quick release, for health and safety reasons.

31. When the Walkers start rolling down the hill into the Savior prisoners of war, only three were really there – the rest were added in digitally afterwards. Because, being a Walker, the stunt performers weren’t able to brace their falls correctly, the bound actors playing the Savior prisoners had to try to imperceptibly protect the falling Walkers during the fight scene.

32. On stage at The Kingdom, when Morgan pulls out the Savior’s guts through the bullet wound in his stomach, the actor in question (a stunt performer on the show) wore a specially designed cradle around his chest into which a bag of fake guts and blood was stuffed, which Lennie James reached into to grab a handful of meat.

33. The Alexandrian houses that exploded in the finale were specially built shells rigged with explosives, not real houses like some of the others on set.

34. The residents of Senoia, Atlanta have to put up with a lot of disturbance during night shoots on The Walking Dead. The season finale involved several explosives being set off at 4am.

35. No real arrows are fired on set because of health and safety. The bows are real, but the actors and stunt performers just ping the bow string and the arrows are added in digitally.

36. The roadhouse where Rick and Morgan kill Jared and the runaway Saviors in Still Gotta Mean Something is Mama’s Country Showcase in Griffin, Georgia, a working bar where line-dancing classes, poker tournaments and live country music regularly happen. It’s about a half-hour drive from Senoia, where the Alexandria sets are located.

37. Listening to the audio on the wordless season ending flashback scene of young Carl and his sheriff dad on their walk years before the apocalypse was hilarious, says Angela Kang. The young actor playing little Carl “was chatting up a storm with Andy,” apparently. He wouldn’t let Andrew Lincoln pick him up. “It was clear who was the boss in that scene.”

38. The very last season eight scene Andrew Lincoln filmed was the flashback of him and young Carl. Rick Grimes had to be shaved with a short haircut for the memory scene, so they had to leave it until last.

39. Rick Grimes’ brown leather jacket with the sheepskin collar is popularly known among fans as his “murder jacket”. Now Maggie Rhee has her own equivalent, says Angela Kang – the “leadership jacket”.

40. On the home-release version of Wrath, scenes of Negan preparing for the fight with Rick’s people were cut from the broadcast for reasons of length. In the uncut version, we see Negan waking up—an echo of the shot of old-man Rick waking up in the season premiere—and Negan giving a speech to the Sanctuary crowds in which he beats Lucille against a table and cries “We are Saviors!”, to which the Saviors all wave their guns in the air and cheer.

41. In Wrath, Jerry says “shit” three times in his scene with Ezekiel, which was almost the episode’s entire swear allowance, says Scott Gimple.

42. Eugene’s costume since joining the Saviors was designed to reflect his defection to the dark side, says Angela Kang. “He started to dress more and more like an apocalyptic version of a Sith lord with the black coat and the dark. He used to wear the little shorts and the khakis and blue then he went to a much more greyscale look when he was really embedded with the Saviors.”

43. In Eugene’s final scene though, after his betrayal of the Saviors saved Rick’s people, Eugene is back to wearing blue overalls, signifying a change in his character back towards the light.

44. The season finale was filmed in November, which meant there was only nine hours of daylight (a normal shooting day is twelve hours), but meant that they could feature stark trees stripped of their leaves which went tonally with the episode but aren’t often seen in the state of Georgia.

45. The coldest The Walking Dead has even got is around seventeen degrees Fahrenheit while filming the season five finale, which is approximately minus eight degrees Celsius.

46. The technical logistics for Wrath, with multiple groups convening on the same hillside, was all worked out by the writers using overhead Google Map views of the battle hill, covered in Matchbox toy cars and little toy soldiers they’d move around to make sure it all worked logically. “I certainly didn’t think when I was a kid,” said Scott Gimple, “that you’d use those same tools decades later to actually plan something for a television show.”

47. The idea that the Saviors’ guns would backfire because of Eugene’s sabotaged bullets was decided upon early on. By the time of season seven’s midpoint, when Negan takes Eugene back to the Sanctuary, the writers had planned an eventual redemption for the character. Josh McDermitt apparently acted disappointed when he heard the news that Eugene would come good in the end – he’d enjoyed playing him bad.

48. In the final scene of Maggie plotting with Jesus and Daryl to act against Rick, the showrunners nicknamed Lauren Cohan “Maggie Corleone” inspired by the Godfather films.

49. Dwight—always considered ‘bizarro-Daryl’ by the show’s creators—is given “the little itty bitty possibility of a happy ending” in the season eight finale. Daryl and Dwight’s final scene is “the omega of their relationship” that began part way through season six.

50. It’s symbolically significant that we see Rick in his sheriff’s uniform in the season eight finale, says Angela Kang, as it marks a kind of return to the idea of law and order in a way, after all-out war, and points towards season nine’s interest in what rules there need to be in a civilisation.

On the aboriginal day of this year’s Paris Motor Show, Renault CEO Carlos Ghosn apparent the K-ZE, a array electric beautiful ute advised in cooperation with Chinese accomplice Dongfeng. “Cute” is the accessible chat here.

Avocatul din limuzina, editie de buzunar

Michael Connelly ne ofera in primul sau thriller juridic o poveste incendiara despre un avocat cinic, a carei singura farama de integritate il poate costa viata.

Mickey Haller si-a petrecut toata viata profesionala temandu-se ca, daca va intalni un client nevinovat, nu-si va da seama. Haller este un "avocat din limuzina", care lucreaza de pe bancheta din spate a Lincolnului sau, aparandu-si clientii de la periferia societatii. Nu e de mirare ca este dispretuit de politisti, procurori si chiar de catre unii dintre cei pe care ii apara. Soferi prinsi beti la volan, artisti escroci si traficanti de droguri se afla pe lista lui de clienti.


Dar cand un pusti bogat din Beverly Hills este arestat pentru agresarea unei femei, Haller are, dupa ani de zile, parte de primul sau client care plateste bine si, mai mult decat atat, pare si nevinovat.. Dar apoi
cazul incepe sa o ia razna, clientul nu e tocmai cine pare, iar Haller descopera ca atunci cand inoti cu rechinii, poti sa sfarsesti ca o prada.

          Curated Diversity in Chicago      Cache   Translate Page      

I came across a very intriguing premise several months ago that's stuck with me ever since. I think I've had a subconscious acknowledgement of it for some time, perhaps years, but it was only when reading an interview in the Atlantic with New York Times investigative journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones about school segregation that the notion clicked. The interview was conducted with The Atlantic's editor-in-chief Jeffery Goldberg, and offered a revealing and enlightening view of how segregation works today:

"Goldberg: What do you call “curated diversity”?

Hannah-Jones: I never talk about school inequality in terms of “diversity” because I think it’s a useless word. I think it’s a word that white people love. When I say “curated diversity,” it means white parents like a type of diversity so they’ll still be the majority and there won’t be too many black kids.

White Americans, in general, are willing to accept about the ratio of black Americans at large: 10 to 15 percent.

Goldberg: But you get into the 20s...

Hannah-Jones: When you get into the 20s, white folks start to exaggerate how large the percentage is. So in New York City, one of the most segregated school systems in the country, if you’re a white parent in the public schools, you don’t want all-white schools.

Goldberg: Because you’re a liberal?

Hannah-Jones: Yeah. But what you want is a majority-white school with a small number of black kids and a good number of Latino, a good number of Asian. That makes you feel very good about yourself because you feel like your child is getting this beautiful integrated experience. The problem is that the public schools in New York City are 70 percent black and Latino. So, for you to have your beautiful diversity, that means that most black and Latino kids get absolutely none.

The tolerance for increasing particularly the percentage of black kids is very low, and even lower if those black kids are poor. No white parents in New York City mind having my kid in their school because they feel like I’m on their level. But if you get too many of kids like mine who are black but poor, there’s very little tolerance."

What I'm finding is that in many cities, especially in Chicago where I am, there's a real desire to curate the diversity of the city. And the result is that it leads to widely varying views on actual diversity, and ultimately on economic and social inequality and mobility.

How so? Let's use Chicago as an example. In 1970 Chicago had a population of just under 3.4 million people. The Great Migration that brought hundreds of thousands of African-Americans to the city had essentially come to a close, and the wave of Latino growth driven by Mexican in-migation had yet to fully start. Chicago's demographic breakdown at the time fell approximately in this way:

White: 58.2%
Black: 32.7%
Latino: 7.3%
Asian: 0.9%
Other: 0.7%

In Chicago, as in many cities, you'd never find a geographic unit of any type that had the kind of demographic breakdown seen above. Most census tracts, neighborhoods, community areas, zip codes -- whatever unit of geography -- are overwhelmingly one group or another.

I borrowed a map from the DePaul University Institute of Housing Studies to illustrate this point. I colored in Chicago Community Areas (CCAs, which are the city's long-standing community units for small area data collection) by their concentration of white or minority population. Here, green CCAs had a population that was 80 percent or more white in 1970, blue CCAs had a population that was 80 percent or more minority in 1970 (in this case, black, Latino, Asian and "other"), and purple CCAs had a population that was between 20 percent and 80 percent white:









































By 2015, the demographic characteristics of Chicago shifted dramatically. Overall the city's population dropped by almost 650,000 people, roughly equivalent to the current population of Portland, OR, or Memphis, TN. But decades of white population loss, enormous Latino population growth, substantial Asian population growth and moderate black population loss have created a very different demographic profile:

White: 32.2%
Black: 29.1%
Latino: 30.9%
Asian: 5.9%
Other: 1.9%

And here's a map of how concentrations of white and non-white populations, using the same categories as the 1970 map, are distributed in 2015:








































My guess is that many readers look at this and see the loss of green areas and the increase in purple areas and interpret the change as progress; a more integrated Chicago. Indeed, in 1970, 39 of Chicago's 77 CCAs had a white population in excess of 80 percent. Twenty-one CCAs fell into the middle category (20%-80% white), and 17 had minority populations in excess of 80 percent. In 2015 only four CCAs had a white population greater than 80 percent, and 30 had white populations between 20 and 80 percent.

But just as noteworthy is the spread of blue on the 2015 map, indicative of the growth in the number of CCAs with minority populations greater than 80 percent. There were 17 in 1970 and 43 in 2015.

And that's where the notion of "curated diversity" comes in.

Chicago's North Side CCAs are more diverse than they've ever been. The North Side CCA of Lincoln Square (#4 on the map) was 94 percent white in 1970; in 2015 it was 65 percent. Irving Park, #16 on the map, was 96 percent white in 1970, and 40 percent in 2015. To the extent that those communities have become open to minorities, it is progress. There are many Chicagoans who are committed to, and just as importantly feel, that Chicago is a more tolerant and welcoming city.

By contrast, Chicago's West Side and South Side CCAs are nearly as segregated as they've always been. The Grand Boulevard community (#38 above), was 99 percent black in 1970. By 2015 it was 91 percent. Woodlawn's black population in 1970 was 96 percent; in 2015 it was 85 percent.

Moderate changes, yes. But it's clear that "diversity" is happening in the places where it's being curated.

How is this accomplished? It appears it's a matter of moving the goalposts in for many former supermajority white neighborhoods. In other words, Chicago neighborhoods that previously had overwhelmingly large white populations have been traded in for one that have a simple majority or plurality. There are neighborhoods that have indeed welcomed in greater numbers of minorities, particularly the rapidly growing Latino and Asian segments of the population. It's somewhat less true for African-Americans in Chicago, but there has indeed been a significant increase in the number of African-Americans in former supermajority white neighborhoods. However, there's been little corresponding movement into supermajority minority neighborhoods, particularly supermajority African-American neighborhoods.

What remains is a Chicago that, despite dramatic increases in the numbers of Latino and Asian residents, consistent numbers of African-American residents over time, and a substantial loss of white residents, is virtually as segregated today as it was nearly 50 years ago.

Why does this matter? Where we live vastly impacts our perceptions of how we live. It sets the stage for huge differences in how we view our schools, our police protection, how infrastructure investment decisions are made. It reinforces deep divides within a shared space.

I'll close with this quote from the Nikole Hannah-Jones interview, again spoken in the context of school segregation in New York City but certainly applicable to neighborhood segregation everywhere:

"I hear this all the time: “You can’t integrate schools in York City because there’s not enough white kids.” But that's only based on the premise that you can’t expect white kids to be in the minority. The demographics of the New York City public schools are about 40 percent Latino, almost 30 percent black, 15 percent Asian, 15 percent white. If you picture a classroom like that, that's a beautiful school. That’s a beautifully diverse, integrated school. You could have that if you chose. We just don’t choose it, because we automatically say, “You can’t expect that a white parent will put their kid in school with all those black kids.”"

And finally, this:

"We have a system where white people control the outcomes. And the outcome that most white Americans want is segregation. And I don’t mean the type of segregation that we saw in 1955. I don't mean complete segregation. I don't think there are very many white Americans who want entirely white schools. What they do want is a limited number of black kids in their schools."

The rigid lines of segregation have softened somewhat, but there's still quite a way to go.

          Tour the town: Visit these Brooklyn spots for Open House Weekend      Cache   Translate Page      

See this story at BrooklynPaper.com.

By Julianne McShane

Brooklyn Paper

It’s open season!

Nearly 30 architectural marvels throughout Kings County will open to the public for free visits on Oct. 12–14 as part of the 16th annual Open House New York Weekend. The wide variety of available tours represents the borough’s storied past and promising future, said the organization’s executive director.

“The range of sites that will be open in Brooklyn during Open House New York Weekend — both new and old — gives the public a chance to experience firsthand how the borough is changing, and hopefully better understand where we’ve been and where we’re going,” said Gregory Wessner.

Here are a few borough spots where you need no ticket — just stop on by this weekend.

Fine Dime-ing

Start your Saturday stroll with a tour of Dime Savings Bank, a Gilded Age landmark Downtown, topped with an ornate domed roof and supported by red marble columns made from stone imported from ancient Greek quarries. The neo-Classical structure — built in 1908 — offers a blend of old and new architecture, since the tour will also offer a sneak peek at the attached 73-story, 1,066-foot bronze and glass residential tower, which will be the borough’s tallest tower when it is complete.

Dime Savings Bank (9 DeKalb Ave. at Fleet Street Downtown). Oct. 13 from noon–4 pm. Free.

A very fine House

Visit the Old Stone House, a 1933 reconstruction of the Vechte–Cortelyou House, a Dutch family farmhouse that was the site of the final fight of the 1776 Battle of Brooklyn — the largest battle of the Revolutionary War — and the former clubhouse of the Brooklyn Dodgers. The House features a permanent exhibition on the Battle of Brooklyn, and currently hosts the art exhibit “For Which It Stands,” a reflection on national flags.

The Old Stone House (336 Third St. between Fourth and Fifth avenues in Park Slope, www.theoldstonehouse.org). Oct. 13, 9 am–5 pm. Free.

Go Clubbing

On Sunday, take in the opulence and rich history of Park Slope’s Montauk Club. The stately, stained glass-covered building has served as a private social club for the last 130 years. The club did not admit women until the 1960s, but anyone can drop by this Sunday afternoon!

Montauk Club (25 Eighth Ave. at Lincoln Place in Park Slope). Oct. 14 from noon–4 pm, with tours every 30 minutes. Free.

High Five!

End your weekend with a pint at Five Boroughs Brewing Co., a gigantic beer production facility in Sunset Park — with an attached taprooom — located inside a former steel fabrication plant. Take a tour and learn how the brewers built the factory, and how they turn yeast, malt, and hops into their signature brews. Shoes with closed toes are required , since the site is an active brewing spot.

Five Boroughs Brewing Co. (215 47th St. between Second and Third avenues in Sunset Park). Oct. 13 and 14 at 1 pm, 2 pm, and 3 pm. Free.

Open House New York (www.ohny.org). Oct. 12–14 at various locations and times.

          For the Love of Pod: Wanna Know Idaho      Cache   Translate Page      
"I approached our General Manager and said, "I'd like to take Wanna Know Idaho and push it even further than we went last year.'" The still-recent history of podcasting dates back to 2003, but it was Serial, the Peabody Award-winning series first produced by This American Life, that set the standard. To date, Serial episodes have been downloaded nearly 200 million times. "Serial really is the definitive demarcation in the podcast landscape," said Frankie Barnhill, community engagement manager and award-winning reporter for Boise State Public Radio. "Like a lot of people, I vividly recall listening to that first season of Serial episodes in 2014." Barnhill's personal admiration for Serial intersected with her professional life when, during Serial's second season (2015-2016), she produced Speaking of Serial, a BSPR podcast about the podcast. The 10-episode arc took a deep dive into Serial's latest subject: Idaho-native and Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who was then facing a military court martial. Over the past three years, a few BSPR podcasts have followed, including You Know the Place (see BW's Lex Nelson's story of that BSPR podcast by clicking here). But one of the station's most popular series is Wanna Know Idaho, which recently launched its second season. "I'm lucky to be the one hosting the second season. The first season was basically un-hosted, but this past summer, I approached our General Manager Tom Michael and said, "I'd like to take Wanna Know Idaho and push it even further than we went last year,'" said Barnhill. "It wasn't necessarily that I wanted to be the host, but I think that my job as community engagement manager naturally has me wanting to involve the community as much as possible." Indeed, that is Wanna Know Idaho's unique MO: It bills itself as a "people-powered podcast." Simply put, it's based on the public's curiosity. For example, in its first season, listeners asked, "What would it take for train travel to return to Southern Idaho?" "What's up with the Abe Lincoln statues in Downtown Boise?" "How do the bands for Treefort get picked?" and "How did Idaho get that name?" And Wanna Know Idaho answered. Wanna Know Idaho's second season began in late August, when listener Mary Reiman asked, "What's in the fire retardant that's dropped on Idaho's wildfires?" The question couldn't have been more timely, what with Idaho still in the throes of wildfire season. "She was pretty excited because I took her into the offices of the National Interagency Fire Center," said Barnhill. "Now, as a reporter, I can enter NIFC,…

          Αμερικανός αστροναύτης υφίσταται μπούλινγκ στο Twitter επειδή τόλμησε να αναρτήσει απόφθεγμα του Τσώρτσιλ      Cache   Translate Page      

Ένας από τους άγραφους «νόμους» των social media είναι να μην ποστάρουμε αποφθέγματα διάσημων (και μη), mantras κ.ο.κ.

Όπως αποδείχθηκε όμως ο αμερικανός αστροναύτης, Σκοτ Κέλλυ δεν ήταν ενήμερος και έτσι είπε να χρησιμοποιήσει αποφθέγματα του εκλιπόντος βρετανού πρωθυπουργού Γουίνστον Τσώρτσιλ. Φυσικά δεν φαντάστηκε τι θα επακολουθούσε. Αυτό καθώς δεν φαίνεται να υπολόγισε πως αν και για πολλούς ο Τσώρτσιλ θεωρείται «πατέρας της νίκης» των συμμαχικών δυνάμεων επί αυτών του Γ′ Ράιχ, υπάρχουν και εκείνοι που τον επικρίνουν σφόδρα για τις απόψεις του σχετικά με την υπεροχή της βρετανική αυτοκρατορίας και των φυλετικών διακρίσεων. 

Ο Κέλλυ, η νύφη του οποίου έχει διατελέσει Γερουσιαστικής των Δημοκρατικών στις ΗΠΑ, χρησιμοποίησε ένα από τα πιο γνωστά αποφθέγματα του Τσώτσιλ για να σχολιάσει τον διχασμό που παρατηρείται στην αμερικανική πολιτική σκηνή. 

Όπως έγραψε στο Twitter «Ένας από τους μεγαλύτερους ηγέτες της σύγχρονης εποχής, ο Σερ Γουίνστον Τσώρτσιλ είχε πει: Στη Νίκη, Μεγαλοψυχία. Υποθέτω πως αυτές οι μέρες έχουν περάσει». 

 

Η φράση αυτή εμφανίζεται στο βιβλίο του Τσώρτσιλ για τον Β′ Παγκόσμιο Πόλεμο και αναφέρεται στην ανάγκη οι νικητές μια διαμάχης να επιδεικνύουν μεγαλοψυχία στον ηττημένο. 

Ο Τσώρτσιλ όμως είναι επίσης γνωστός και για άλλα αποφθέγματα όπως «Δεν παραδέχομαι πως αυτοί οι άνθρωποι αδικήθηκαν επειδή μια πιο δυνατή φυλή, μια ανώτερη φυλή, μια πιο εκλεπτυσμένη φυλή για να το πω αλλιώς, πήγε και πήρε τα εδάφη τους». Ο Τσώρτσιλ στην περίπτωση αυτή αναφερόταν στις φυλές των ιθαγενών στην Νότια Αμερική και την Αυστραλία. 

Οι followers λοιπόν του Κέλλυ άρχισαν να τον βομβαρδίζουν με διάφορα ανάλογα αποφθέγματα του Τσώρτσιλ ή να του θυμίζουν την αμφιλεγόμενη, έως κατακριτέα στάση σε μια σειρά από άλλα ζητήματα. 

Για παράδειγμα σε κάποια tweets αναφέρεται πως ο Τσώρτσιλ αγνόησε τις εκκλήσεις για παροχή βοήθειας όταν το 1943, επί δικής του διακυβέρνησης, ξέσπασε μεγάλος λιμός στην Βεγγάζη που στοίχισε τη ζωή σε περί τα 3 εκατ. ανθρώπους. Ο Τσώρτσιλ μάλιστα κατηγορείται πως ευθύνεται για τον λιμό καθώς «έκλεβε» το σιτάρι που παρήγαγε η χώρα για να τραφεί ο βρετανικός στρατός.  

Ο Κέλλυ λίγο αργότερα ζητήσει συγγνώμη από όσους προσβλήθηκαν εξαιτίας της ανάρτησής του και δήλωσε πως θα φροντίσει να ενημερωθεί για τις «φρικαλεότητες και τις ρατσιστικές απόψεις» του Τσώρτσιλ.

Πρόσθεσε επίσης, πως πρόθεσή του ήταν να επισημάνει πως οι Αμερικανοί δεν θα πρέπει να επιτρέψουν στην πολιτική για να διχάσει το έθνος. 

Ουίνστον Τσώρτσιλ: Οι 50 πιο εύστοχες ατάκες ενός πολιτικού με καυστικό χιούμορ 

 

Δεν είχε περάσει όμως λίγη ώρα αφού απολογήθηκε και του επιτέθηκαν οι θαυμαστές του βρετανου πρωθυπουργού, επειδή αποκάλεσε τον Τσώρτσιλ «ρατσιστή». 

Όπως ανέφεραν οι υποστηρικτές του βρετανού ηγέτη, οι απόψεις που εξέφραζε εκείνη την εποχή ήταν οι επικρατούσες. «Παρακαλώ διαβάστε την βιογραφία του Τσώρτσιλ πριν κάνετε δηλώσεις περί “φρικαλεοτήτων” και ρατσιστικών απόψεων”. Δεν διέπραξε καμία φρικαλεότητα και οι απόψεις που διατύπωσε περί φυλής, πριν από 100 χρόνια δεν μπορούν να κρίνονται βάσει των σημερινών προτύπων», έγραψε στο Twitter o δημοσιογράφοςΠωλ Ρέιντ ο οποίος έχει γράψει και βιβλίο για τον Τσώρτσιλ. 

«Δεν μπορούμε να κρίνουμε ιστορικές προσωπικότητες με βάση της σημερινές ευαισθησίες. Κανείς δεν θα βγει αλώβητος. Το να προσαρμόζουμε την ιστορία στις σύγχρονη αντίληψη αδικεί τις εποχές και τις καταστάσεις που του παρελθόντος», επισημαίνει ένας άλλος χρήστης.

Πολλοί ακόμη, έσπευσαν να υποστηρίξουν τον Kέλλυ αλλά και να επικρίνουν τους σύγχρονους επικριτές του Τσώρτσιλ.

          The 'Dark Underside to Conservatism': Ex-Republican Reveals How He Finally Realized that Racism and Extremism Are Behind the GOP's Success      Cache   Translate Page      
It's a commendable example of changing one's mind.

Conservative writer Max Boot has had a major reckoning with his fundamental political beliefs and alliances since the rise of Donald Trump.

And in a new essay published this week in the Washington Post, adapted from his forthcoming book, The Corrosion of Conservatism: Why I Left the Right, he explained how he came to realize that it wasn't just Trump that was wrong with conservativism — there is something deeply corrupt with the movement itself.

"It would be nice to think that Donald Trump is an anomaly who came out of nowhere to take over an otherwise sane and sober movement," he wrote. "But it just isn’t so."

He continued:

Upon closer examination, it’s obvious that the history of modern conservative is permeated with racism, extremism, conspiracy-mongering, isolationism and know-nothingism. I disagree with progressives who argue that these disfigurations define the totality of conservatism; conservatives have also espoused high-minded principles that I still believe in, and the bigotry on the right appeared to be ameliorating in recent decades. But there has always been a dark underside to conservatism that I chose for most of my life to ignore. It’s amazing how little you can see when your eyes are closed!

One can disagree about the extent to which "high-minded principles" have ever been a serious part of conservatism. But acknowledging, as Boot does here, the extremist and racist features deeply embedded within the movement and ideology, is a rare but important step for disillusioned Republicans to take.

Boot notes that this tendency in the American right goes back to the backlash against President Dwight D. Eisenhower, the World War II general elevated into politics by his battlefield glory who disappointed many conservatives with his moderate streak. Though he hardly embraced the Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education ruling that pushed for American schools to desegregate, Eisenhower didn't run from it — for which many racists never forgave him.

Boot reveals some of his naivete in discussing Barry Goldwater, the 1964 Republican presidential candidate of whom he writes: "Goldwater was not personally a racist — he had integrated the Arizona Air National Guard — but, like his GOP successors, he was happy to make common cause with racists in order to wrest the South from the Democrats."

It's not clear if there is or should be a clear distinction between being "personally a racist" and making common cause with racists, a point which seems to evade Boot. In American politics, it all amounts to supporting white supremacy.

But Boot does recognize that Goldwater embraced an absurd form of conservative extremism, "making clear that extremism is embedded in the DNA of the modern conservative movement."

He added:

In 1964, the GOP ceased to be the party of Lincoln and became the party of Southern whites. As I now look back with the clarity of hindsight, I am convinced that coded racial appeals had at least as much, if not more, to do with the electoral success of the modern Republican Party than all of the domestic and foreign policy proposals crafted by well-intentioned analysts like me. This is what liberals have been saying for decades. I never believed them. Now I do, because Trump won by making the racist appeal, hitherto relatively subtle, obvious even to someone such as me who used to be in denial.

At times, Boot is clearly far too sanguine about certain parts of the conservative movement, such as House Speaker Paul Ryan — to whom he credulously attributes an earnest desire to spread economic opportunity, rather than seeing the GOP leader as a demonstrated liar bearing the sole goal of empowering the most privileged members of society while abandoning the impoverished. But Boot nevertheless recognizes that whatever his idealized version of the GOP may be, the party as it stands is another entity entirely

Like many others, Boot hopes that the November midterms will bring in a resounding success for Democrats, dealing a decisive blow to GOP government control. In his view, Democrats will need to thrive for decades to root out the corruption in the Republican Party before something can be built in its place.

But it's far from obvious what could emerge in its place without the appeals to conspiracy-mongering, extremism, and racism, that constitute the current version of the party. Without these elements, the GOP would be entirely unrecognizable.

          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.
