          CareMount moves into Manhattan, adding Murray Hill practice      Cache   Translate Page      

Murray Hill Medical Group, which has more than 40 physicians in Manhattan, has agreed to join CareMount Medical, giving the Chappaqua-based group practice its first locations in New York City.

Founded in 1992, Murray Hill's main office is at 317 East 34th St. and houses 14 specialties. It also has a gastroenterology and cardiology procedure site on East 37th Street.

"As we continue to grow, its important we have a connection to the city when our patients are down in the city working," said Dr. Scott Hayworth, CareMount's president and CEO. "Likewise, when Murray Hill residents move out of the city, we're here for them as well."

Manhattan marks the sixth county for CareMount, which has more than 40 locations and 550,000 patients in Columbia, Dutchess, Putnam, Ulster and Westchester counties.

As Manhattan's major medical centers open offices in the suburbs, Hudson Valley medical groups are laying claim to parts of Manhattan. Westmed Medical Group has offices on Park Avenue and on East 88th Street, and Crystal Run Healthcare has locations on East 71st and East 76th streets.

Murray Hill, which sees more than 140,000 patients annually, ultimately chose 560-provider CareMount over other bidders, including health systems.

"What we saw in them was basically a larger version of ourselves," Dr. Rajiv Kinkhabwala, president of Murray Hill, said. "We're both independent, physician-born-and-bred practices."

Hayworth said Murray Hill's physician-owners would become shareholders of CareMount Medical.

Crain's reported in July that CareMount would take on financial risk for Medicare Advantage patients covered by Aetna and Empire BlueCross BlueShield next year.

Preparing to enter value-based contracts was a major factor in Murray Hill's decision to join a larger medical group, which it considered for two to three years, Kinkhabwala said.

"Even as a 40-provider group in Manhattan, we found us to be on the small side to take the next step in terms of providing value-based care," he said. He cited the cost of IT systems and personnel needed to track and manage the cost of patient care.

The Murray Hill practices employ more than 100 people. Staff members will be asked to interview for open positions, according to CareMount. The deal will be effective Jan. 1. 

CareMount has affiliations with Mount Sinai Health System and Massachusetts General Hospital. Hayworth said Murray Hill will continue its long-term relationship with NYU Langone Medical Center and will admit its patients there. Many of Murray Hill's physicians were trained at NYU Langone, including some who served as chief residents at the hospital.

Hayworth said that CareMount would add doctors to fill additional specialties in Manhattan, such as general surgery, orthopedics and hematology/oncology.

"The long-term plan is to plug in the holes and make sure we have everything we need in Manhattan," Hayworth said. —Jonathan LaMantia

 

Affinity to shut down Medicare Advantage plans


Bronx-based nonprofit insurer Affinity Health Plan will get out of the Medicare Advantage business by the end of the year, the company confirmed Monday.

Its Medicare plans currently serve about 13,600 recipients, the company said.

The insurer first disclosed it was shutting down its Medicare product line in a filing with the state Department of Labor, noting that 28 employees of its 566 employees would be affected by the closure. Layoffs are scheduled to take place Dec. 31.

"We're entertaining what options we have," said Michael Murphy, president and CEO of Affinity, in an interview.

In any case, the company will not be in the Medicare business in 2019, he said. He said some parties have expressed interest in acquiring the business but declined to give more details.

A spokeswoman at Affinity Health Plan said in an email that that employees were notified on Oct. 1 of the shutdown. "The decision to exit Medicare occurred some time ago as part of Affinity's desire to focus on our core business—serving the most needy populations of New York through primary care," she wrote.

Affinity is currently working with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services on the best way to transition members, possibly to other plans, Murphy said.

This is the second product to be discontinued by Affinity. About a year ago, the state Department of Health told Crain's the insurer would not sell qualified health plans on the New York State of Health marketplace in 2018. At the time, the Health Department said the state marketplace could not certify Affinity because the insurer's cash reserves had fallen below requirements.

Murphy said the cessation of Affinity's Medicare product line was not at the direction of CMS.

Affinity lost $73.6 million on $1.46 billion in revenue in 2016, the most recent year for which financial data are available online. The insurer's Medicaid business accounted for about 75% of its revenue.

"We're not planning any other exits at this point," Murphy said. —Jennifer Henderson

 

UHF report suggests options to stabilize state's indy market


New York largely has fended off the Trump administration's efforts to unwind the Affordable Care Act through existing laws and lawsuits against the federal government, according to a new United Hospital Fund analysis.

But the elimination of the financial penalty for going without insurance in 2019 will test the viability of the state's individual insurance market, according to the report.

It showed New York has the 38th-ranked medical risk profile in the country, indicating the group is sicker than most.

The average monthly premium price in New York's individual market increased 10.5% to $525 in 2017, compared with a U.S. average of $500.

Subsidies are available to people earning up to 400% of the federal poverty level, or $100,400 for a four-person household. A family earning above that would pay more than double for the lowest-cost, or bronze, plan in Manhattan.

UHF offered several options for New York to draw more people into the individual market by making coverage more affordable: The state could start its own reinsurance program to reimburse plans for high-cost members; it could implement a state individual mandate penalty; or it could expand premium subsidies to cover more residents.

"New York has a pretty good track record of defending ACA coverage gains either though regulation or litigation," said Peter Newell, director of UHF's Health Insurance Project and co-author of the report. "Seeing the same sense of urgency to keep the individual market on track would be very positive." —J.L.

 

Church-based programs help reduce blood pressure in black communities


Lifestyle interventions delivered in churches can aid in managing high blood pressure in black communities, according to a study led by NYU School of Medicine researchers and published online today in the journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes.

Churches are integral components of black communities nationwide. The study authors hope that faith-based intervention to manage high blood pressure and ward off heart disease will scale to other communities, NYU said.

From 2010 to 2014, the study's researchers collected data from 373 participants who identified as black and belonged to 32 New York City churches, according to NYU. They all reported a diagnosis of high, uncontrolled blood pressure. After six months, participants that received community health-worker intervention at churches saw a net reduction of 5.8 mm Hg in systolic blood pressure—the pressure in blood vessels when the heart beats —compared to the control group that received health education alone. After nine months, the treatment effect persisted, but with reduced significance of 5.2 mm Hg, researchers wrote.

"We think this is very important and should be scaled up," said Dr. Gbenga Ogedegbe, professor of population health and medicine at NYU School of Medicine and the study's lead author. To expand the program it will be important to demonstrate the cost-effectiveness of this type of disease management to insurers, he said.

The study's co-authors were Antoinette Schoenthaler, Mark Butler, and Jessica Forsyth at the Center for Healthful Behavior Change at NYU School of Medicine, Kristie Lancaster at New York University, and William Chaplin at St. John's University.

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health, supported the research. —J.H.

          Tales from the trade war: Businesses caught between retailers and a hard place      Cache   Translate Page      

The past few years have been good for OMG Accessories, the teenage-girl-centered lifestyle brand that fashion industry veteran Anne Harper founded in 2009. And she owes much of that success to China.

By producing handbags and backpacks at a Chinese factory that provided a quick turnaround on small orders, the company has been able to test the market and build up a line of products that is now carried in thousands of stores across the United States. Sales this year have tripled over last year, bringing total revenue to more than $10 million. Harper is now set to move OMG and its 14 employees into a larger showroom in its West 33rd Street building.

Her industry, however, has been caught in the crossfire of an escalating trade war that could put the brakes on any kind of growth. Handbags and backpacks made in China are among the $200 million worth of goods that recently became subject to a trade tariff scheduled to jump to 25% in January.

But OMG is in an unusual position, and not just because of how quickly it's been growing. Last year, in an effort to diversify production for mass orders, Harper and an overseas partner bought a factory in a low-wage, Southeast Asian country that she prefers, for competitive reasons, not to name. About six months ago, as the trade war began heating up, she shifted production to the new factory. About 95% of her fourth-quarter inventory escaped the 10% duty that went into effect in September. She's now positioned to avoid the devastating levy set for 2019.

Harper has been forced to take bigger gambles on her orders, but overall she is glad she planned ahead.

"If I didn't have this factory, [the tariffs] could have destroyed me," she said. "That's how I know that people who are not in my position are in big trouble."

The trade war, which has so far encompassed everything from imported steel and aluminum to electrical equipment and microscopes, began to hit New York's fashion industry in July, when luggage, handbags, footwear, textiles, and leather and faux-leather apparel were listed as being in the next round of restrictions.

Industry representatives have spoken up about fashion's unique reliance on a complex supply chain rooted in China and the difficulties of finding alternatives. But not all of the industry will be hurt in the same way. Some large brands, such as Coach and Kate Spade, began shifting production out of China years ago and moving it to low-wage facilities in Southeast Asia and India. Other companies, such as Steve Madden, ramped up a shift to Cambodia that was already in motion.

In addition, some well-known brands may have big enough margins and a loyal enough customer base to absorb some portion of the tariff and pass along the rest.

But OMG and other brands with price-sensitive products are in no position to experiment. Their retail buyers are saying suppliers will have to eat the cost of the tariff, as the stores have no intention of raising prices.

"If they are selling a bag of mine at $20 and then it goes over $20, even by a dollar, the customer has a different perspective," Harper said. "Shoppers are used to getting a bargain."

There are also drawbacks for small companies that work with factories in low-wage countries. Those nations lack the industrial expertise and transportation infrastructure that China has developed and take roughly double the time to turn around an order—six months as opposed to three. That means Harper is banking that what's "on trend" today, such as her unicorn-decorated handbags, will be just as popular next year.

What's more, the new factory can do only mass-volume production: a minimum of 3,000 units per color and style. That works for what she's selling now, but it would be too big of an order if she wanted to venture into new markets, such as bags for women or backpacks for boys. In fact, most retailers, Harper said, are taking few large orders of any kind.

"Even Kohl's—which has 1,100 stores—once something's proven, they'll order 3,000," Harper said, "but most of the time they're ordering one or two bags for each store. It used to be you'd have 10 of a style, but stores don't have traffic like that anymore."

For many local fashion brands—most of which do not own a factory in a low-wage Asian country—the biggest issue is the uncertainty surrounding the tariffs. "Do you want to disrupt your entire supply chain when there could be an agreement next month?" asked Julia Hughes, president of the United States Fashion Industry Association.

She thinks that the uncertainty has been exacerbated by the lack of clear direction or precise goals in the Trump administration's approach. "In past administrations and trade disputes, almost everybody felt they had a sense of what the outcome would be," Hughes said. "That's not the case here, and that makes it more complicated."

But the administration's defenders argue that President Donald Trump is trying to reverse decades of failed trade policy that allowed China to undermine American manufacturing and appropriate companies' intellectual property as a condition for operating in the country. The short-term pain of higher prices and rearranged supply chains, they say, will yield fairer trade rules for U.S. companies and new life for domestic factories.

Economist Ed Yardeni says American companies doing business with China have in effect supported its expansionist plans and superpower ambitions. He said the 25% tariff is aimed at weakening the country and keeping it from challenging American interests.

"The goal isn't to force concessions out of China but rather to get manufacturers out of China and into either the U.S. (ideally) or to countries such as Mexico that do agree to the terms of bilateral trade deals with the U.S.," Yardeni wrote in a recent report.

But a large-scale return of garment factories to the United States is simply not in the cards, experts said.

"We would have to rebuild a vast infrastructure and find people who actually want to sit at sewing machines, which would require a dramatic increase in immigration," said Susan Scafidi, director of the Fashion Law Institute at Fordham Law School. "People who are born in the U.S. typically don't aspire to work in garment factories."

She added that it was possible other countries, including Mexico, could expand their manufacturing capacity, but those changes would take a lot more time to put in place than a trade deal.

For now some fashion companies are simply looking to manage their business in the short term.

Urban Expressions, which produces a popular line of vegan, faux-leather handbags, took a gamble in July and sped up its production for next year.

"We landed 50% of the goods we planned for Q1 before the first tariff took effect, and most of the other 50% will have landed before the 25% tariff goes into effect," noted Farbod Shakouri, co-founder of the Los Angeles–based company, which has its showroom in New York. He figures that he can keep his retailers supplied through the first nine months of 2019.

He is also holding down costs. Earlier this year Urban Expressions was planning to buy an entire floor of a West 33rd Street building for its New York operations. It put the purchase on hold and is instead moving into a larger showroom in its current building, on West 32nd Street.

Shakouri has no desire to shift production from China. He has tried out factories in Bangladesh, Cambodia and Myanmar and was dissatisfied with the long lead times and their inability to do small production runs. A tariff might make him more receptive to a move, but he would prefer to see a compromise on absorbing the costs.

"A lot of the strategies are going to revolve around the retailers and what they're going to do," Shakouri said. "If they increase prices, then there could be a partnership along the supply chain where everyone eats a little bit into their margins to keep the status quo—until somehow there's a resolution."

Since coming back from injury, Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball has actually been shooting pretty well. He’s 6-of-9 from three-point range in those two games, both wins. This doesn’t take away from the fact that Ball has been absolutely brutal from a shooting standpoint as a rookie, hitting on just 36 percent of his shots from the field. It also doesn’t help that Ball has one of the ugliest shots that we’ve come across. Just ask Joel Embiid. He knows this. And he’s let Ball know it. The narrative that Ball can’t shoot isn’t going to be helped by the fact that he just lost a shooting competition to hip-hop artist Bow Wow. This isn’t a drill. It really happened. And it’s all sorts of glorious. Whew. Look at Bow Wow’s reaction. Dude couldn’t be more excited.

          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.

          This Lesbian Mixologist Moonlights as an Aerial Acrobat      Cache   Translate Page

Lana Gailani is a Renaissance woman of the 2010s.

Current IssuePrint IssueWomenLesbianEver Had a Fortune Cookie Mai TaiBoris Abrams

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Jimmy Butler's absence from the Wolves is still excused; here's why that's important      Cache   Translate Page      
As we arrive at the three-week anniversary of Jimmy Butler’s Los Angeles meeting with Tom Thibodeau during which Butler requested a trade from the Timberwolves, all sorts of uncomfortable questions need to be explored. One of them: What happens if the Wolves dig in and decline to trade Butler? What is Butler’s end game in that scenario? I can’t imagine any pleasant outcome in that case, nor do I think it’s very plausible. Butler being traded soon, as much as Thibodeau might not want to, is still the most likely and obvious outcome. But if not … well, Door 1 is Butler somehow comes back and the atmosphere at Target Center is overwhelmingly toxic. The team is likely fractured and plays poorly, and even if they play well there’s a cloud hanging over the whole thing because Butler will walk away for nothing at some point. Door 2 is more intriguing but no more pleasant: What if Butler remains steadfast in his trade demand and refuses to report to the team? Thibodeau at media day two weeks ago said Butler needed more time to get into shape after offseason hand surgery. That was the official reason he wasn’t in camp, though everyone assumed it was just a convenient excuse to keep Butler away while a trade is pursued. He said at the time Butler would be expected to rejoin the team when healthy — maybe a week, the coach said — but here we are two weeks later. I asked Thibodeau on Tuesday if Butler — who has been working out in various local gyms for the past two weeks and was spotted again Tuesday at the Life Time Fitness in Plymouth — is still excused from being away from the team. Thibodeau said yes. When asked if there is a point at which the absence would be unexcused, Thibodeau said: “It’s fluid. We’re always going to do what’s best for the team. That’s the important thing for everyone to understand. If that means he’s here, then he’ll be here. If that means he’s not here, then he’s not here.” Per league rules, if Butler’s absence becomes unexcused, he has 30 days to report to the team. MSN noted a couple weeks back that the big deal about that is if Butler doesn’t do that within 30 days, he won’t accrue a year of service in the league — and therefore couldn’t opt out of his contract and become a free agent next year, when he clearly wants to cash in with a big payday. That 30-day clock presumably has not started ticking as long as his absence is excused due to injury. So here’s where Butler’s hand injury — even if it’s a sham — comes into play. The Star Tribune and other outlets have reported that Butler’s meeting three weeks ago with Thibodeau was not the first time he expressed a desire to move on from Minnesota. It might have been the most definitive occasion, a line in the sand of sorts, but the sentiment had been communicated this summer. So let’s travel back to July 26, and this strange-seeming (at the time) and very short news release sent out by the Timberwolves: “Minnesota Timberwolves guard/forward Jimmy Butler underwent a successful, elective right hand procedure on Tuesday, July 24, 2018. Butler has already returned to offseason activities.” I remember thinking it seemed strange at the time because why would there be an announcement about a procedure that seemed so minor? In retrospect, two things were possibly happening: 1) Butler was establishing on the record that he had an offseason procedure and 2) The Wolves in announcing it were trying to downplay it as much as possible by describing it as elective and saying Butler has already returned to offseason duties. The first part seems most important right now because that hand is being used as the official excuse as to why Butler isn’t with the team. And as long as Butler is injured with a previously established condition, or can say he is still injured without being challenged, he can collect paychecks and accrue his time. Butler could have chosen a knee procedure since he was coming off a season in which he missed time with a meniscus injury, but maybe a knee would have been a red flag for other teams? Kawhi Leonard perhaps did some version of this with San Antonio last year, when he played just nine games with a mysterious calf injury before being traded this offseason to Toronto. Pro Basketball Talk noted that Mo Williams pulled something similar. Would the ultra-competitive Butler really be willing to sit out an entire year in his prime just to prove a point? Hard to say. Maybe even doubtful? But that’s his leverage right now, and the worst of all worlds for the Wolves is that Butler never plays another minute here AND they recoup nothing for him in a trade.

Getting Local Land Use Approvals Right
October 9, 2018

What can California and its cities do to bring down the soaring costs of housing? Land entitlement, often lengthy and subject to review at several levels, is one process that could be reformed to speed up the construction of new housing and, in doing so, reduce costs.

Recently, researchers from Berkeley Law joined San Francisco Planning Department staff at a SPUR forum in San Francisco to discuss how state and city reforms might (or might not) streamline the approval processes. Berkeley Law researchers Eric Biber, Moira O’Neill and Giulia Gualco-Nelson summarized their findings so far from a multi-year study of land entitlement in five Bay Area cities: Redwood City, Oakland, Palo Alto, San Jose and San Francisco. San Francisco Planning Department staff members Elizabeth Watty, Jake Bintliff and Lisa Gibson presented several pilot programs they designed to accelerate and simplify building approvals, changes that staff can implement without having to wait for local or state legal reforms.

Categories of Review

A number of factors influence land use approval in a jurisdiction, which can cause drastically different approval processes among cities in the same region. The Berkeley Law team explained that all jurisdictions in their study used discretionary review, a process that applies an extra layer of local approval for a plan, on top of compliance with the existing planning and zoning code. Jurisdictions can choose different mechanisms to impose discretion, however. In the five cities Berkeley Law studied, these mechanisms include design review, architectural review, general plan compliance and others. This difference can make applications for development across the region more difficult, which can prolong construction timelines and increase the cost of a project.

The same goes for environmental review: Policymakers have wondered if the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), a state mandate designed to minimize the health and environmental risks of new development, hinders the development of housing projects across the state because review and appeals can prolong the approval process. The Berkeley Law study found that while all cities in the study use CEQA as part of discretionary review processes, the reviews themselves were completed inconsistently. The study found that very few housing developments were subject to CEQA lawsuits (2.5 percent of projects among the jurisdictions, amounting to 5.3 percent of total units), suggesting that CEQA review does not prolong approval timelines. However, representatives from the San Francisco Planning Department noted that although CEQA lawsuits may be uncommon in San Francisco, the threat of a CEQA lawsuit and the compromises that are made to avoid one does in fact hinder development.

Shortening Timelines

The Berkeley Law researchers also studied the relationship between the land use approval timeline and the number of units in a project. Their data show that smaller projects (five units or fewer) took the longest time to be approved, suggesting that factors besides scale of a project are at play, and that perhaps the local political context could influence building approvals through discretionary processes. The team explained that cities seek to maintain discretion in their processes so that they can approve development that will bring revenue and infrastructure to the city.

The Planning Department explained several modifications to their procedures that can help reduce building approval timelines and decrease overall project costs. Some of these included adding more staff, more collaboration among staff who are conducting different categories of review of the same project, and introducing methods to move projects toward approval without having to wait in line. They also hope to speed up the approval process for in-law or accessory dwelling units (ADUs) and modifications to single family homes and will set up a simplified administrative approval process for affordable housing projects. Jake Bintliff emphasized that even simple tweaks to departmental tasks can save staff time and help important housing projects break ground sooner.

Exploring New Ideas

Both Berkeley Law and the San Francisco Planning Department shared other ideas that could advance the construction of housing. One promising solution is California Assembly Bill 73, which would allow cities to create housing sustainability districts and receive financial incentives for doing so. Developments within a sustainability district would be automatically granted an initial environmental impact review and ministerial permits within 120 days. A sustainability district must be located within one half mile of public transit and, if established, will receive zoning incentive payments from the California Department of Housing and Community Development. The Berkeley Law panelists emphasized that in order for the state to create effective policy for all jurisdictions, legislators must have better access to data that shows what is actually happening in local land use approvals processes before making sweeping changes to CEQA and other regulations.

Berkeley Law will expand its research to Los Angeles, while the City of San Francisco will launch pilot and other preliminary measures within the department to see how they will affect approval timelines. Both groups hope these efforts can inform other cities in modifying their local approval procedures, as well as future statewide policy changes.

          Gonzaga-Michigan State scrimmage set for Oct. 27 in Minneapolis      Cache   Translate Page      

The Gonzaga-Michigan State closed scrimmage has been on the books for weeks and now they’ve settled on a date and location.

The college basketball powers will tangle Saturday, Oct. 27, in Minneapolis.

The Spartans are projected as a top 15 team despite having to replace lottery picks Jaren Jackson (No. 4 to Memphis) and Miles Bridges (No. 12 to the Los Angeles Clippers, traded to Charlotte).

The scrimmage should serve as quality preparation with both programs facing tough non-conference schedules. Michigan State opens against Kansas on Nov. 6. The Zags have marquee matchups against Tennessee, Washington, Creighton and North Carolina, and they’ll play in a loaded eight-team field at the Maui Invitational.

Michigan State beat the Zags 75-71 in East Lansing in 2009 and 74-67 in 2011 in Spokane, the latter behind Draymond Green’s 34 points.

Closed scrimmages have been permitted by the NCAA since 2005. Schools aren’t allowed to promote the event and media and fans are prohibited from attending.

GU has held past scrimmages against Baylor and Texas. The scrimmage will be a first for Michigan State, which has instead opted for two exhibition games.

'Under the Silver Lake': el director de 'It Follows' firma una magistral historia detectivesca de conspiranoia pop#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Quizás una de las pistas más claras para empezar a tirar del largo hilo de referencias que maneja 'Under the Silver Lake' es la canción 'What's the frequency, Kenneth?', de uno de los mejores discos de la banda REM, 'Monster', de 1994. Es un extraño tema, que se ralentiza en su tramo final porque el bajista sufrió un ataque de apendicitis en la grabación, que no llegó a repetirse. La letra habla de forma críptica sobre la desconexión entre los conocimientos de los adultos y los jóvenes, y su origen es una extrañísima anécdota: el periodista televisivo Dan Rather fue golpeado en la calle por un desconocido que no paraba de reptir la frase sin sentido.

Pero hay más: debido al impacto de esa anécdota, durante un tiempo, la frase fue sinónimo en Estados Unidos del popular WTF para expresar sorpresa (ojo a las iniciales), y la gente joven usó alternativamente 'What the fuck, Kenneth' como latiguillo. Antes que en el tema de REM, la frase había aparecido en 1993 en la obra maestra del cómic alternativo 'Como guante de seda forjado en hierro', de Daniel Clowes. En él se cuenta un misterio urbano rebosante de pistas que hunden sus raíces en la arqueología pop pero que no llevan a ningún sitio. Es una de las influencias más claras y obvias de 'Under the Silver Lake', en argumento y tono.

Pese a las apariencias, 'Under the Silver Lake' no lanza al espectador una avalancha de guiños que solo interpretarán los iniciados, pero están ahí para quien quiera exprimirlos: la portada de 'Playboy' que conecta con 'Agujero negro' de Charles Burns, las escogidas citas cinéfilas con retranca, los guiños a Lynch y sobre tod a 'Mullholland Drive', discos que giran al revés y temas pop con mitología esotérica al fondo. Los temas que trata 'Under the Silver Lake' son tan sugestivos y abiertos a interpretación que incluso dialogan con referencias que quizás su director y guionista, David Robert Mitchell, no ha previsto: por ejemplo, las historias sobre códigos secretos entre vagabundos se complementaban en mi cabeza con el cómic 'The Lonesome Go', de Tim Lane, que quizás Mitchell no ha leído. O sí.

En cualquier caso, ese diálogo con otros medios (uno de los temas de la película: toda la cultura popular está interconectada) añade profundidad al film, pero no es imprescindible para disfrutarlo. El esqueleto de la película de Mitchell es una investigación casi detectivesca (otra referencia: la abundante mitología noir clásica ambientada en Los Angeles) a manos de un joven aburrido y en paro (Andrew Garfdield). Arranca con la sospecha de que a una amiga le puede haber pasado algo oscuro, lo que le conduce a grandes revelaciones acerca de las cosas que importan.

Y las cosas que importan aquí tienen un inconfundible aliento generacional, tema que Mitchell ha tratado con distintas aproximaciones a lo largo de toda su carrera, desde su primera película -la estupenda 'The Myth of the American Sleepover'- a su revelación internacional, ese ya clásico moderno que es 'It Follows'. La angustia juvenil de sentirse desplazado y destinado a no encajar en el mundo adulto es tratada siempre por Mitchell con ligereza, pero también con respeto y comprensión. Quizás 'Under the Silver Lake' sea la que tiene una forma más humorística, pero un mensaje más amargo: da igual lo revolucionaria que quiere parecer la cultura juvenil, que siempre va a haber un adulto vigilando.

Y eso implica desde el nirvanazo a los comics de superhéroes, desde las cintas perdidas de Marylin a la cultura de los fanzines (que, parece decir Mitchell, contienen las claves para desencriptarlo todo) pasando por las revistas de videojuegos o esa parte de la letra de 'I love Rock'n'roll' que cantan en la película y que dice "I love rock n' roll / So put another dime in the jukebox, baby". Más claro, agua. Todo está conectado, y eso ya nos lo habían dicho otras veces, pero pocas de forma tan inteligente, divertida y apasionante como en 'Under the Silver Lake'

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

          Chính Trị Mỹ Với Chính Trị Việt Nam.      Cache   Translate Page      

Nguyễn Quang Duy


Thứ bảy 6/10/2018 vừa qua cánh bảo thủ Mỹ vượt qua sóng gió tạo thành tích mới khi Thượng viện bỏ phiếu với tỷ lệ 50-48 chấp nhận ông Brett Kavanaugh vào vai trò thẩm phán Tối Cao Pháp Viện.

Như vậy 5 trong số 9 thẩm phán Tối Cao Pháp Viện nay thuộc thuộc cánh bảo thủ, vì thế sẽ ảnh hưởng rất lớn đến chính trị và cấu trúc xã hội Mỹ.

Còn ở Việt Nam, đảng Cộng sản loan báo “100 phần 100” đại biểu tại Hội nghị Trung ương 8 đã "tín nhiệm giới thiệu" Tổng Bí thư Nguyễn Phú Trọng để đưa ra Quốc hội bầu làm Chủ tịch Nước.

Cả hai đều có liên quan chặt chẽ đến Hiến Pháp và đều có những điều đáng để tìm hiểu.



Vì sao gọi là bảo thủ Mỹ

Tối cao Pháp Viện là cơ quan có quyền lực cao nhất của Hoa Kỳ, giữ quyền quyết định các tranh tụng về luật liên bang và luật xuyên tiểu bang.

Đồng thời có thẩm quyền giải thích Hiến pháp, tuyên bố các đạo luật liên bang, đạo luật tiểu bang là vi hiến, hoặc tuyên bố các hoạt động của hành pháp liên bang và tiểu bang là vi hiến.

Thẩm phán Tối cao Pháp Viện gồm chín người được bổ nhiệm trọn đời bởi Tổng Thống và được phê chuẩn bởi Thượng viện.

Các thẩm phán giải thích Hiến Pháp và các đạo luật theo nghĩa gốc ban đầu tạo ra chính nó được xem là theo khuynh hướng bảo thủ.

Còn các thẩm phán giải thích ý nghĩa của Hiến Pháp theo hoàn cảnh, theo thời gian hoặc theo các tài liệu chứng cứ xung quanh việc ban hành một đạo luật được xem là theo khuynh hướng tự do cá nhân.

Cánh bảo thủ muốn duy trì một xã hội truyền thống chống lại những người theo chủ nghĩa tự do cá nhân đang được nhiều người trẻ thuộc đảng Dân Chủ ủng hộ.

Ông Kavanaugh là thẩm phán theo khuynh hướng bảo thủ, phục vụ tại Tòa Phúc thẩm Washington, DC từ năm 2006 tới nay nên khi Tổng Thống Trump bổ nhiệm đã gặp rất nhiều chống đối.

Việc ông Kavanaugh gia nhập Tối Cao Pháp Viện làm nghiêng cán cân Tối Cao Pháp Viện với tỷ lệ 5-4 về phía những thẩm phán bảo thủ.

Vì thế nhiều vấn đề đang gây tranh cãi như quyền phá thai, quyền hôn nhân đồng tính, quyền nhập cư, quyền chuyển giới tham gia quân đội Mỹ… nay phía bảo thủ có nhiều cơ hội để thắng thế hơn.

Thậm chí nhiều đạo luật đã thông qua nhưng còn nhiều tranh cãi nay có thể sẽ được mang ra xét lại.

Và khi một đạo luật liên bang được Tối Cao Pháp Viện thông qua đương nhiên sẽ áp dụng cho tất cả các tiểu bang.

Nhiều ý kiến cho rằng Tối cao Pháp viện Hoa Kỳ luôn bị “chính trị hóa” theo quyết định đảng chính trị đang thắng thế.

4 lý do tạo thành khuyết điểm kể trên là (1) thẩm phán do Tổng thống bổ nhiệm; (2) chỉ cần quá bán Thượng viện đồng thuận với Tổng Thống; (3) nhiệm kỳ cho các thẩm phán là trọn đời; và (4) mọi quyết định của Tối Cao Pháp Viện chỉ cần quá bán đồng thuận.

Muốn thay đổi Tối Cao Pháp Viện cần thay đổi Hiến pháp Hoa Kỳ một điều gần như không thể xảy ra.



Việt Nam Ngày Nay …

Khác với ở Mỹ, cánh bảo thủ tại Việt Nam bảo vệ chủ nghĩa xã hội, nếu có thay đổi tạm thời thì phải lấy mô hình thể chế của Trung cộng làm định hướng.

Trên danh nghĩa Quốc Hội là cơ quan quyền lực tối cao, không ai có quyền kiểm soát hoạt động của Quốc hội, phủ quyết các đạo luật, các quyết định của Quốc hội.

Trên thực tế, quyền lực tối cao thuộc về Bộ Chính Trị, Trung Ương Đảng biểu quyết theo thủ tục và Quốc Hội luật hóa quyết định Bộ Chính Trị.

Tư Pháp, Lập Pháp, Hành Pháp, Mặt Trận, Báo Chí, Toàn Xã Hội… đều do Bộ Chính Trị quyết định.

Quyết định Bộ Chính Trị “vi hiến” hay không là điều không cần phải bàn tới vì Hiến Pháp chỉ là hình thức.

Bởi thế mới có việc Tổng bí thư Nguyễn Phú Trọng vừa nắm tổ chức đảng, vừa nắm quân đội, lại vừa nắm công an, trong “tình huống” hiện nay phải nắm luôn vai trò Chủ tịch Nước.

Hội nghị Trung ương 8 còn quyết định thành lập 5 tiểu ban chuẩn bị cho Đại hội lần thứ 13, trong đó Tổng Bí thư Nguyễn Phú Trọng nắm luôn hai tiểu ban là Trưởng Tiểu ban Văn kiện và Trưởng Tiểu ban Nhân sự.

Dường như đảng Cộng sản nay không còn ai có đủ tài, đủ đức, đủ lý luận để bảo vệ chủ nghĩa xã hội nên ít nhất 6 chức vụ quan trọng phải trao cho ông Trọng đã 74 tuổi đời.



Việt Nam Cộng Hòa khi xưa…

Trong hoàn cảnh chiến tranh Hiến pháp Việt Nam Cộng Hòa khi xưa quy định thẩm phán cho Tối cao Pháp viện có nhiệm kỳ sáu năm, luân phiên mỗi ba năm bầu lại 6 người.

Ứng cử viên thẩm phán phải là (1) công dân Việt Nam; (2) 10 năm thâm niên làm chánh án, biện lý, hoặc luật sư; (3) không có quá khứ chống chính phủ hoặc hoạt động thân cộng; và (4) nếu là phái nam thì phải hợp lệ quân dịch.

Các ứng cử viên được Luật sư đoàn, Công tố đoàn và Thẩm phán đoàn cứu xét. Mỗi Đoàn chọn 50 hội viên, tổng cộng là 150 người xem xét danh sách ứng cử viên, bàn thảo và chọn lấy 30 người để trình lên Quốc hội.

Quốc hội sẽ bỏ phiếu chọn 6 người rồi chuyển sang Phủ Tổng thống phê chuẩn.

Những quyết định của Tối cao Pháp Viện như tuyên bố một đạo luật bất hợp hiến hoặc giải tán một chánh đảng phải hội đủ đa số ba phần tư (3/4) tổng số Thẩm phán Tối cao Pháp Viện đồng thuận.

Vụ án Dân biểu Trần Ngọc Châu bị bắt vào tháng 2/1970 vì tội liên lạc với một gián điệp cộng sản Bắc Việt là một vụ án điển hình cho thấy cách làm việc của Tối Cao Pháp Viện.

Khi ông Châu bị bắt với bằng chứng được quay phim, việc trước tiên là Tổng thống Nguyễn Văn Thiệu kêu gọi Hạ viện truất bỏ đặc quyền miễn tố của Dân biểu Châu.

Hạ viện chấp thuận và thông qua với 102/135 phiếu thuận.

Do trước khi được bầu làm Dân biểu, ông Châu là Trung tá Quân đội nên ông được trả về Quân Đội và Tòa án Quân sự tuyên án ông Châu 20 năm tù.

Thượng viện đệ đơn lên Tối cao Pháp viện để xét lại vụ án vì cho là “bất hợp hiến”.

Tòa Tối cao Pháp viện xem xét và tuyên bố việc truất bỏ đặc quyền miễn tố của Hạ viện là bất hợp hiến vì Hạ viện chỉ bỏ phiếu kín mà không mang ra Quốc Hội tranh luận công khai.

Tòa Tối cao Pháp viện còn tuyên bố tòa án quân sự chỉ có quyền trên giới quân nhân tại ngũ, ông Châu phạm luật khi đang là dân sự, nên tòa án quân sự không có quyền tuyên án ông Châu.

Tòa Tối Cao Pháp Viện quyết định thả ông Châu, nhưng Bộ Quốc phòng viện cớ an ninh quốc gia nên vẫn giam Châu đợi ngày tái xét.

Vào tháng 1-1973, ông Châu được trao trả như tù binh cho phía Bắc Việt, nhưng ông Châu cương quyết không chịu theo cộng sản và Trưởng uỷ ban tù binh Bắc Việt không nhận ông Châu.

Đến tháng 6-1974, ông Châu được chính quyền miền Nam trả tự do.

Sau 30/4/1975, ông Châu bị cộng sản bắt tù “cải tạo” 3 năm vì tội là cựu Trung Tá và cựu Dân Biểu Việt Nam Cộng Hòa.

Khi được thả ông cùng gia đình vượt biên sang Mỹ và hiện đang sống tại Los Angeles.

Trong hoàn cảnh chiến tranh vụ án cho thấy Tối Cao Pháp Viện quyết định theo đúng Hiến Pháp và luật pháp Việt Nam Cộng Hòa. Một bài học đáng được ghi nhận.



Tổng Thống Trump Liên Tục Thắng Thế

Chỉ chưa đầy 2 năm tại chức ông đã bổ nhiệm được 2 thẩm phán vào Tối Cao Pháp Viện mang lại nhiều lợi thế cho ông về tư pháp cũng như về chính trị.

Kinh tế Hoa Kỳ tăng trưởng với tỷ lệ 4,1%, tỷ lệ thất nghiệp giảm xuống chỉ còn 3,7% trong tháng 9, đạt mức thấp nhất kể từ tháng 12/1969.

Kinh tế phát triển tạo niềm tin của người tiêu dùng, niềm tin cho doanh nghiệp và niềm tin cho thị trường chứng khoán liên tục gia tăng đạt những mức kỷ lục mới.

Các hiệp định thương mại lần lượt được Tổng thống Trump thương lượng lại với các nước, như Nam Hàn, Mexico, Canada, EU, Nhật, Ấn,… đang mang lại nhiều lợi ích hơn cho nước Mỹ.

Bắc Hàn ngừng thử hỏa tiễn, vào bàn đàm phán, và hôm qua 8/10/2018 Ngoại trưởng Mỹ Mike Pompeo loan báo ông Kim Jong-un sẵn sàng cho phép các phái đoàn quốc tế vào thanh tra các điểm thử hạt nhân và hỏa tiễn.

Khủng bố quốc tế mất khả năng ngóc đầu dậy.

Nhật, Nam Hàn, Đài Loan và cả Âu Châu đồng ý tăng ngân sách Quốc Phòng chia sẻ gánh nặng Quân Sự với Mỹ.

Đồng thời, Mỹ đã tạo dựng một liên minh nhiều quốc gia bao vây quân sự Trung cộng tại Biển Đông.

Với Trung cộng ngoài việc trừng phạt thương mãi, việc trừng phạt tài chính đang được mở ra.

Hoa Kỳ cho đóng băng tài sản tại Mỹ của quan chức cấp cao và doanh nghiệp nhà nước có liên quan đến mua bán vũ khí với Nga. Đồng thời giới hạn chính phủ các nước đồng minh thương mãi, doanh nghiệp hoặc cá nhân giao thương với Trung cộng. Và có thể cấm Trung cộng sử dụng đồng Mỹ Kim trong các giao dịch ngoại hối.

Trên diễn đàn Liên Hiệp Quốc Tổng Thống Trump công khai kêu gọi tất cả các quốc gia trên thế giới chống lại chủ nghĩa xã hội và những khổ nạn mà chủ nghĩa xã hội mang đến cho con người.

Lời kêu gọi của ông Trump không chỉ nhắm đến các quốc gia như Venezuela, Trung cộng, Việt Nam,… mà còn nhắm đến khuynh hướng xã hội chủ nghĩa thuộc cánh tả của đảng Dân Chủ đang được giới trẻ Mỹ ủng hộ.

Những ngày sắp tới ông Trump và đảng Cộng Hòa sẽ phải nỗ lực thêm để trong kỳ bầu cử tháng tới có thể giữ được các ghế ở cả Thượng viện lẫn Hạ viện để tiếp tục điều hành quốc gia trong thế mạnh.

Nhìn chung Mỹ là quốc gia dân chủ nên sinh hoạt chính trị lúc nào cũng sôi nổi, những chính trị gia lúc nào cũng phải năng nổ để liên tục chiến thắng, để được quyền tiếp tục điều hành đất nước.



Trở lại với Việt Nam…

Cũng chỉ hơn 2 năm từ ngày Thủ Tướng Nguyễn Tấn Dũng bỏ cuộc chơi thì tình trạng "chán Đảng, khô Đoàn, nhạt chính trị" càng ngày càng trở nên thảm khốc.

Chính trị Việt Nam ở cấp tối cao lọt vào “tình huống” vô cùng bế tắc, Tổng Bí Thư Nguyễn Phú Trọng phải nhận lãnh 6 chức vụ mà chức vụ nào cũng đều rất quan trọng không ai có thể thay thế được.

Các quốc gia cộng sản, trong đó có cộng sản Việt Nam, đang là điểm nhắm của Tổng Thống Trump.

Chính trị nước Mỹ vì thế đều ảnh hưởng đến chính trị thế giới và ảnh hưởng mạnh đến chính trị Việt Nam.

Thắng lợi của ông Trump đồng thời cũng là thắng lợi của người dân tại các quốc gia cộng sản.

Cơ hội để Việt Nam có tự do dân chủ mỗi lúc một rõ hơn, đòi hỏi người Việt cả trong lẫn ngoài nước nỗ lực hơn đẩy mạnh tiến trình dân chủ hóa Việt Nam.

The Breast Cancer Monologues- a documentary for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As part of National Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, Stage and Studio presents a half-hour adaptation of The Breast Cancer Monologues. Originally produced in 2003 as a one-hour documentary collage with and about Breast Cancer Survivors produced by Dmae Roberts & MediaRites, the show features producers Kate Welch, Miae Kim and Anca Micheti and s actors Olga Sanchez, Caren Graham and Elaine Low. The Breast Cancer Monologues was produced originally in 2003 as part of a year of arts outreach workshops with breast cancer survivors and  intricately weaves  interviews and readings about how breast cancer has affected the lives of women in America. Unfortunately the statistics regarding this disease haven't changed that much since this documentary was first broadcast.

According to Breastcancer.org, about 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Only 5-10 percent of breast cancers are linked to genetic history, yet there is little research as to the cause and the treatment can be as deadly as the disease. Breast cancer is still misunderstood and often a taboo subject.

While businesses are touting the Think Pink or Pink Warrior labels, many of their products may be contributing to breast cancer particularly cosmetics and food production. For more info about this visit Think Before You Pink at BC Action. http://www.bcaction.org/take-action/think-before-you-pink-poison-isnt-pretty/

Here are some updated statistics according to BreastCancer.org,

In 2016, an estimated 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 61,000 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer. About 2,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2016. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.

The Breast Cancer Monologues address the myths and misunderstandings while giving voice to the women who know first-hand the effects of breast cancer.

          Bishop Barron gives insight into youth synod process      Cache   Translate Page      

Vatican City, Oct 9, 2018 / 06:16 am (CNA/EWTN News).- From his perspective inside the Vatican’s youth synod, Bishop Robert Barron, auxiliary bishop of Los Angeles, told CNA that participating bishops have real opportunities - through the unique process used during the meeting - to shape the final document produced by the meeting.

While the synod’s final document requires final approval from Pope Francis, Barron said the 266 bishop delegates to the synod will shape its structure and content.

“I think we all have a chance to make our voices heard,” he said.

Barron was elected last week as the relatore – a kind of reporter– for one of the synod’s English-language working groups. In this role, he is responsible for tracking his group’s conversation, and presenting a summary report, called a “relatio,” to the entire synod assembly.

As a relatore, Barron also oversees the amendment process through which members of his group can propose changes to the structure or content of the synod’s working document.  

On the morning of Oct. 9, Barron and the relatori from the other 13 working groups gave short talks in the synod hall, reporting what their group discussed the previous few days. Barron told CNA Oct. 8 that the process has “been an interesting part of the synod work.”

The reports are forwarded to the members of a writing group, expected to be be elected Oct. 9. That group will compose the synod’s final document, on the theme of young people, faith, and vocational discernment.

The writing group receives “all the amendments, they’ll hear the reports, and then taking all that data, they’ll adjust the document accordingly,” Barron said. Finally, the Synod Fathers will “vote on it at the very end. But this is the whole process by which the document comes to be.”

Barron said that synod bishops have several opportunities to present their views.

One way is in the intervention, or short speech, that each bishop gives at some point in the synod process. Another way, he explained, is in the language discussion groups, where everyone can offer input. Though the relatore delivers the “relatio,” everyone can make suggestions for what it can say, Barron noted.

“So, I think the bishops have a lot of say in the document.”

Barron gave his four-minute intervention on Oct. 4, the second day of the synod. He spoke about what he sees as a need for greater intellectual faith formation of young people, particularly catechesis and apologetics.

“Innumerable surveys and studies over the past ten years have confirmed that young people frequently cite intellectual reasons when asked what has prompted them to leave the Church or lose confidence in it,” he said during the speech.

Asked how he thinks this topic fits with other conversations inside the synod hall, namely, the idea that youth and young adults leave the Catholic Church because they find it irrelevant, he said, “it compliments it.”

He felt the need to bring up faith formation, because he “really didn’t see it strongly in the Instrumentum laboris,” he said. “I think it’s a very important part of the way we accompany young people and I think it just wasn’t really mentioned at all.”

Barron said he would love to see some space devoted to that angle in the final document and that he will certainly bring it up in his small language group, hopefully making an amendment on it.

“So, we’ll see,” he said. “I just felt it was an important thing that was being overlooked a bit.”

          Los Angeles dealer gets probation for selling illegal ivory      Cache   Translate Page      
A Los Angeles antiques dealer has been sentenced to three years of probation after being convicted of selling ivory tusks in violation of state law.

City Attorney Mike Feuer says Tuesday that Anthony James Buccola was also ordered to pay a $20,000 fine.

Buccola's company, Antonio's Bella Casa, was also placed on 36 months of probation and ordered to pay the same fine.

Prosecutors said Buccola sold two illegal narwhal tusks -- measuring 79 and 87 inches -- to an undercover officer for $60,000. Narwhals are rare sea mammals.

The sales violated a law that went into effect in 2016 prohibiting the purchase or sale of products containing ivory from animals -- including elephant tusks, warthog tusks and whale tusks.

Approximately 3.4 million people in the United States are thought to have chronic (long-lasting) hep C, making it the most common chronic bloodborne infection in the nation. As the nation’s largest veterans service organization, The American Legion is dedicated to addressing issues that affect veterans. Hep C is one of the most significant health concerns facing veterans today. One out of every 20 veterans enrolled with the Veterans Health Administration has hep C, more than three times the infection rate of the general U.S. population.

The TAKE ON HEP C tour bus will make a stop in Daytona Beach, Fla., for Biketoberfest. The TAKE ON HEP C tour bus serves as a mobile veteran outreach center offering free hep C antibody testing with same-day results. Visit the tour bus Oct. 18-21 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day for free testing.

American Legion Service Officers also will be on hand to provide free, expert assistance with VA benefit claims for veterans and their families. Veterans and their communities receive valuable educational resources to help them learn about the disease, understand their risk factors, get tested for free and be energized to TAKE ON HEP C.

Other stops for the TAKE ON HEP C tour bus include Galveston, Texas, Nov. 1-4, for the Lone Star Rally; Los Angeles Nov. 9-10 at Hollywood Post 43; Coronado, Calif., Nov. 11 for the Silver Strand Half Marathon; and Miami, Fla., Nov. 16-18 for the NASCAR 2018 Ford EcoBoost 400.

Visit www.legion.org/hepC for a complete list of tour dates and locations and to learn more about the disease, exposure risks, symptoms and testing information.

          THE OLD STRIPPER To Screen In Albuquerque      Cache   Translate Page      

The world is opening their eyes to THE OLD STRIPPER. And she's coming to a local movie theater near you in New Mexico.

Dixie Films has partnered with TUGG Theatrical and Dirty Deeds Burlesque to screen a special one-night theatrical event of the award-winning feature documentary film THE OLD STRIPPER at Regal Winrock Stadium 16 in Albuquerque, New Mexico on December 18th . The film, made by the real-life Mother/Son filmmaking team Jack Truman and Opal Dockery, is an epic documentary film about a burlesque legend who travels across the country, coast to coast, visiting her old dancing cities of yesterday.

Tugg, Inc. (www.tugg.com) a web-platform that enables individuals to choose the films that play in their local theaters and create their own theatrical events, and Dixie Films, are excited to announce that THE OLD STRIPPER is available to screen nationwide through Tugg. The film is available through Tugg for special theatrical screenings across the country. The Albuquerque screening will be the New Mexico premiere of the Tugg theatrical release.

The award-winning film received top film honors at film festivals this summer in Des Moines, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Since it's World Premiere in June at the Interrobang Film Festival, THE OLD STRIPPER has screened over 10 film festivals worldwide, and will continue playing the film festival circuit this fall, in conjunction with the TUGG national release.

Dockery was a burlesque dancer for over 20 years in the 1970's and '80's. Truman, her son, and director of the film, grew up on the road with her during her burlesque circuit.

"This is very special to me", Truman stated in press materials. "The burlesque industry is a lost era. I grew up in that environment, in the adult entertainment business. As a child, I was raised around nudity and pornography. And as a filmmaker, I want to open people's eyes to a world they know nothing about. We are honored to partner with TUGG and Dirty Deeds Burlesque to provide the local area this opportunity to see this incredible documentary film THE OLD STRIPPER in Albuquerque. We hope everyone takes this opportunity to take advantage of this unique program that provides the public the opportunity to see this important film at their local movie theater ".

Over last summer, Truman and Dockery traveled coast to coast, to all 48 states and the District of Columbia, on an epic journey shooting footage in every state nationwide, interviewing dancers young and old, visiting Opal's old dancing cities from her burlesque circuit, seeing landmarks around the country, and interviewing people in the burlesque industry.

"This is a story only we can tell", says Truman.

Earlier this summer, Dockery was inducted in the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, Nevada.

JACK DUNPHY: Once Again, the Los Angeles Times Unfairly Profiles Police as Racists.
          'Go Be a N----- Somewhere Else': ACLU Files Lawsuit Citing San Francisco Police's Documented History of Vile Racism      Cache   Translate Page      
The city by the bay has been a hotbed of illegal race-based policing. This is just the latest example.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Not an Anomaly

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

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

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

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

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

It's Not Just San Francisco

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

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

When will things ever change?

          China's Kafuring Wins the European Quality Award in Healthcare      Cache   Translate Page      

For the first time, a Chinese hospital participates in the Business Triumph Festival in Cannes

BEIJING, Oct. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Business Triumph Festival and European Awards Night organized by the Europe Business Assembly (EBA) formally opened in Cannes, France on October 5. China-based Kafuring, the only non-European medical company that was invited to attend the event, received the EBA European Quality Award for the aspiration to achieve quality in accordance with European standards. Kafuring Chairman Li Xingdong gave a presentation on the company's development, strategy and the contributions that its Implanter Pen technology has made to the medical community. His speech was highly praised by business leaders.

Mr. Li explained the advantages of the Kafuring's Implanter Pen in terms of the small size of the incision, in combination with the high density and natural direction of the hair. The needle incision is 0.6 to 1.0mm in diameter, one-third smaller than traditional implant incisions, assuring a higher transplant density. The resulting wound is small, making it possible to wash one's hair the day following the operation. In addition, the direction in which the hair is transplanted can be flexibly controlled, to fully achieve the desired appearance, delivering a more natural outcome and faster recovery.

In August of this year, Kafuring opened an office in the U.S., the first hair transplant institution established by a Chinese firm outside of its home market. Kafuring is in the process of setting up operations in Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia, among other countries. Kafuring's 31 branches, including those under construction, will use the same internationally leading hair transplant technology to serve the growing needs of customers worldwide.

Thanks to its leading and authoritative Implanter Pen technology, Kafuring has again been invited to attend the World Congress of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) in Los Angeles on October 10. Li Xingdong plans to showcase China's innovative and leading hair transplant achievements to industry professionals worldwide, taking China's hair transplant technology to the world stage and empowering the development of a Chinese economy that is focused on quality.

          7 fatos sobre Guillermo del Toro, o diretor de 'O Labirinto do Fauno'      Cache   Translate Page      
Guillermo del Toro (Foto: Gage Skidmore, via Wikimedia Commons)

 

Desde pequeno, o mexicano Guillermo del Toro se atraía pela beleza do bizarro. Beleza esta que milhares de espectadores também aprenderam a admirar através de suas obras. Pela lente de criaturas mágicas, Del Toro trouxe para o cinema fantástico a sua própria forma de criticar atrocidades cometidas no passado e fazer o público refletir entre um arrepio e outro nas salas de cinema.

Para celebrar o aniversário do diretor, selecionamos sete curiosidades que explicam como Del Toro mantém sua criatividade em dia. Confira:

1 - Família

Nascido em Guadalajara, México, no dia 9 de outubro de 1964, Guillermo del Toro foi criado em uma família católica. Sua mãe, Guadalupe, era uma poeta amadora que tinha como hobby ler cartas de tarô e seu pai, Federico, foi um empreendedor que, antes de Guillermo começar a estudar, ganhou na loteria mexicana e construiu um império através da sua concessionária da Chrysler.

Com a ascensão financeira, a família se mudou para uma mansão modernista onde o pequeno diretor vivia que com uma coleção de animais.

2 - Os primeiros anos

Cobras corvos e ratos brancos eram alguns dos pets que o garoto mantinha em casa — sendo que, segundo o perfil do diretor feito pela The New Yorker, de vez enquando, os ratos serviam como ursinhos de pelúcia para o pequeno Del Toro.

E esta não é a única demonstração de morbidez na infância do diretor. Aos cinco anos, Guillermo pediu raízes de mandrágora como presentes de Natal para fazer "magia negra". Três anos mais tarde, ele não estava fazendo bruxaria mas já experimentava o gosto de gravar filmes com sua câmera câmera Super 8.

Para o diretor, essa foi a época mais importante da sua vida. “Tudo o que sou, no sentido da compulsão artística e das histórias que conto, vem dos meus primeiros 11 anos”, afirmou Del Toro em entrevista à revista colombiana Gatopardo. “Acredito que quem somos na essência se forma nesses primeiros anos, depois passamos a vida remendando o que se rompeu e construindo o que não.”

3 - Início de carreira

Del Toro começou a filmar seus primeiros curtas na adolescência. Já com uma visão de que os verdadeiros monstros da história são os seres humanos, o jovem Guillermo criou um curta no ensino médio em que uma criatura surgia dos encanamentos de um banheiro e, ao conhecer a humanidade, escolheu voltar para os esgotos novamente.

Por isso, sua escolha profissional foi mais do que natural. Del Toro frequentou o Centro de Pesquisa e Estudos Cinematográficos da Universidade de Guadalajara e em 1983, após se graduar, ele publicou um ensaio sobre Os Pássaros, de Alfred Hitchcock.

Dois anos mais tarde, ele fundou a Necropia, uma empresa de efeitos especiais. Em 1986 e 1987, Del Toro lançou seus primeiros curtas oficiais: Doña Lupe e Geometría. Em 1993, foi a vez de estrear seu primeiro longa, Cronos, uma filme sobre vampiros e a procura pela vida eterna.

Foi esta obra que o aproximou de um de seus maiores ídolos, o ator argentino Federico Luppi, que protagonizou o filme.

4 - Visitando o Tio Sam

Cronos se tornou um sucesso entre os críticos mexicanos e norte-americanos, chamando a atenção dos irmãos Weinstein. Em 1997, Del Toro lançou o filme Mimic através da produtora americana, mas sem a tão querida presença de Luppi, que foi barrado pelos produtores por não falar inglês fluentemente.

Com sua primeira estreia internacional, Del Toro foi reconhecido como um dos diretores mais promissores do cinema fantástico. A experiência de ter gravado com os  Weinstein, no entanto, não foi tão memorável para o diretor assim.

“Meu primeiro trabalho nos Estados Unidos quase foi o último, porque foi com a Miramax e os  Weinstein”, desabafou Del Toro em uma entrevista dada em um festival de cinema Em Londres. “Devo dizer que duas coisas horríveis me aconteceram nos anos 1990: o sequestro do meu pai e trabalhar com os Weinstein. Sei qual das duas foi a pior... O sequestro do meu pai fazia sentido, porque pelo menos eu sabia o que os sequestradores buscavam.”

5 - Filmes de sucesso

Cartaz de 'O Labirinto do Fauno' (Foto: Divulgação)

 

 

Em 2001, Del Toro deu início a uma trilogia inacabada. A Espinha do Diabo é o primeiro filme do diretor sobre a Guerra Civil Espanhola, que segue o cotidiano de um orfanato salvo pela aparição de um fantasma. A segunda obra de sua trilogia é a mais famosa do diretor: O Labirinto do Fauno, indicado a seis Oscars — tendo ganho três estatuetas. Por último, a terceira parte da série ainda não foi lançada, mas especula-se que o título seja 3993, sobre fantasmas de pessoas assassinadas em 1939.

Entre outras grandes produções em que Del Toro se envolveu na direção, produção ou roteiro estão Hellboy, a trilogia de O Hobbit e A Colina Escarlate. Recentemente, o mexicano dirigiu e escreveu A Forma da Água, filme que lhe rendeu os Oscars de Melhor Filme e Melhor Direção.

6 - Bleak House

Imagine ter uma segunda casa só para guardar seus colecionáveis, cadernos, brinquedos e livros. É isso que Del Toro guarda em sua Bleak House, em Los Angeles. Réplicas em tamanho real de Edgar Allan Poe, H. P. Lovecraft e Regan MacNeil (a garota possuída em O Exorcista), uma máscara gigante de Frankenstein e passagens secretas são apenas algumas das milhares de coisas que podem ser encontradas no sobrado que guarda toda a memória do diretor. Veja abaixo um tour pelo imóvel:

7 - Melhor cosplay

Você tem a impressão de que Del Toro parece com a versão mais jovem de alguém muito querido? Pois é, você está certo. Com uma boina preta sobre os cabelos brancos, o mexicano ficou a cara do escritor George R. R. Martin. Confira a foto do "cosplay" que ele compartilhou no Twitter:

Festő. Eleinte Gráber Margit gondozta tehetségét a Dési Huber Szabadiskolában. Innen került 1956-ban a budapesti Képzőművészeti Főiskolára, ahol Bernáth Aurél, Pap Gyula, Szőnyi István és Domanovszky Endre volt a mestere, de nem egyszer bejárt Kmetty János korrektúrájára is. 1962-ben Stúdió tag lett. Több kelet- és nyugat-európai országban járt tanulmányúton. Számos külföldi és országos tárlaton szerepelt. Önálló kiállítással 1974-ben a Kulturális Kapcsolatok Intézetében jelentkezett. 1964-1967 k. Derkovits-ösztöndíjat, 1972-ben Munkácsy-díjat kapott. Az 1968-as jubileumi Stúdió tárlaton nagy díjat nyert. Színdús művészetében egyensúlyt keres a látványszerű, és nonfiguratív megoldások között. (MÉ, L.

Számos kelet- és nyugat-európai országban járt tanulmányúton. 1962-ben a Stúdió tagja lett. 1971-90 között a Képzőművészeti Főiskola esti tagozatának tanára volt, 1990-től ugyanott, a festő szakon osztályvezető tanár. 1993-tól a Széchenyi Művészeti Akadémia levelező tagja. Számos külföldi (Ausztria, Finnország, USA, Német-, Olasz- és Franciaország, Hollandia) és hazai (Ernst Múzeum, Francia Intézet, Fészek Galéria, Ludwig Múzeum, Rácz Stúdió Galéria, Bartók 32 Galéria, Osztrák Kulturális Intézet, Műcsarnok, Magyar Nemzeti Galéria, Szentendre, Szombathely, Szentes, Esztergom, Vác, Pécs, stb. ) tárlaton szerepelt. Budapesten és Monostorapátiban él. 1970-től nyaranta Szentendrén dolgozott. Díjak: 1964-1967 között Derkovits-ösztöndíj, 1972-ben Munkácsy-díj, 1980-ban Juho Russannen-díj (Finnország), 1988-ban az Európa Kiadó nívódíja, 1998-ban Érdemes Művész cím. Elsősorban az Európai Iskola volt rá hatással. K. művészetére a sokrétűség és sokszínűség jellemző. Színdús művészetében egyensúlyt keres a látványszerű és nonfiguratív megoldások között. Festészeti és grafikusi munkássága szinte nem válik el egymástól, könyvillusztrációiban ugyanakkor a tisztán festészeti motívumok mellett emberalakok is feltűnnek. Munkáit őrzi a Magyar Nemzeti Galéria, a szentendrei Ferenczy Múzeum, a pécsi Janus Pannonius Múzeum, a fővárosi Kortárs Művészeti Múzeum/Ludwig Múzeum, a szombathelyi képtár és a győri Városi Múzeum, a bécsi Albertina, amerikai, ausztriai, finnországi közgyűjtemények, valamint a szöuli Museum of Modern Art.

1962-ben a Képzőművészeti Főiskolán végzett, mestere Bernáth Aurél volt. Számos kelet- és nyugat-európai országban megfordult tanulmányúton. Önálló tárlattal 1974-ben a Kulturális Kapcsolatok Intézetében jelentkezett. 1964-1967-ben Derkovits-ösztöndíjas, 1972-ben Munkácsy-díjat kapott. - Az 1968-as jubileumi Stúdió-kiállításon nagydíjat kapott. - Színdús festészetében egyensúlyt keres a látványszerű és a nonfiguratív megoldások között. - Irod.: Acsay Judit: Adatok múltról és jelenről.

1962-ben szerzett diplomát Bernáth Aurél irányításával. Számos kelet- és nyugat-európai országban megfordult tanulmányúton. Minden jelentősebb hazai tárlat és külföldi művészeti bemutató résztvevője; kiállított többek között 1965-ben a Párizsi Ifjúsági Biennálén. Önálló tárlattal 1974-ben és 1983-ban a Kulturális Kapcsolatok Intézetében, 1976-ban a Helikon Galériában, 1977-ben Salgótarjánban és Szentendrén, 1979-ben Szentesen és a Csók Galériában, 1983-ban Esztergomban jelentkezett. 1977-ben Lengyelországban állított ki. 1964-1967-ben Derkovits-ösztöndíjat, 1972-ben Munkácsy-díjat kapott; 1968-ban nagydíjat nyert a Stúdió jubileumi kiállításán. - Színes, indulati piktúrájában mindig fellelhető a természeti indíttatás, s ha el is jut az akciófestés határáig, egyensúlyt keres a természetelvű és nonfiguratív megoldások között. Elvont irányba hajló munkái elsősorban kolorizmusukkal hatnak. Újabban illusztrációs feladatok felé tájékozódik. Kortárs magyar művészeti lexikon I-III.

Művészetére a sokrétűség, sokszínűség jellemző, pályakezdésekor kiindulópontja a természeti jelenség, melyből folyamatos következetességgel építi fel a formát és szerkezetet. 1970-től nyaranta Szentendrén dolgozott, de művészetére elsősorban az Európai Iskola volt hatással. Rusztikus anyagokból készített kollázsokat, képarchitektúrákat. A 80-as évek elején érezhető változás történt művészetfelfogásában, egyre tudatosabban a tiszta festőiség, a szín, szerkezet és felület viszonyának problémái foglalkoztatták. Munkássága összekapcsolható ugyan az informel hatásával, de nem elsősorban stiláris értelemben, hanem sokkal inkább a festői gesztusok, anyagok és színek használatának szellemi rokonsága terén. Egyaránt kedveli a bonyolult képfelépítést és a kihagyásokra épülő, szinte csak egy-egy gesztusból megteremtett "üres" képet is. Az érzéki festészet számára nem csupán a spontán gesztust jelenti, hanem annak kiérlelt, megfontolt, tudatos, szinte tervezett megkomponálását is. A nagy, homogén, majd széttöredező színfelületekre íródik rá egy-egy vezérmotívum: geometriai vagy amorf forma, kalligrafikus jel. Ezek a jelek csak távolról utalnak archaizáló, prehistorikus rajzokra, mégis, sok esetben a képen nem is jelenlévő figurális motívumokat idéznek fel a nézőben. Színfelületei hullámzóak, a vakolatszerűen vastag, dús rétegek váltakoznak a csak jelzésnyi, áttetsző festék- és színrétegekkel. Előszeretettel alkalmaz súlyos színeket: a fekete, vörös, mélykék, arany, fehér, transzcendens mélységeket kölcsönöz képeinek. A 80-as években az Új szenzibilitás kiállítássorozat és mozgalom résztvevője. Gyakorta használja a vászon mellett a papírt is, a 90-es években a keleti kalligráfia távoli hatása is beépült művészetébe. A festészeti és grafikai munkássága szinte nem válik el egymástól, könyvillusztrációiban ugyanakkor a festészeti motívumok mellett emberalakok is feltűnnek.

          SLASH On Writing For THE CONSPIRATORS: 'The Nucleus For New Material Always Comes From When We're On The Road'      Cache   Translate Page      
GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash says most of the material written for "Living The Dream", his fourth solo album and third with THE CONSPIRATORS, comes from when the band is on tour and can assemble ideas during soundcheck. The initial riffs for the disc were collected as far back as 2015, but progress on the record came to a halt when GUNS N' ROSES' "Not In This Lifetime" reunion tour took off. In a recent interview with Joe & Borna of Milwaukee radio station 102.9 The Hog, Slash spoke about how he selected ALTER BRIDGE's Myles Kennedy in 2011 to front the guitarist's then-newly-formed backing band, THE CONSPIRATORS. "To make a long story short, when I did the first solo record with all the singers, I didn't have any long-term plans," he said. "I didn't know what I was doing. I didn't know what would come of it. When I was making the record, I had two songs that I couldn't figure out who should sing. I had sort of pre-planned every other piece of music, who would be the singer and so on. I had been hearing about Myles for a long time, but I never actually heard him sing. Then I thought I'll take a chance on it and I sent him a piece of music and I called him up: 'Hey, it's Slash. I'm doing this record with all these vocalists.' He said, 'Send me the song.' So, I sent him the song, and about four days later, it came back as an MP3 e-mail kind of thing and I sort of reluctantly clicked on it and was blown away by the vocal. I flew him out to Los Angeles and we met and he was very cool, down-to-earth, very personable kind of individual. We recorded the studio version of that song and it was a song called 'Starlight', and then I asked him if he wanted to do another one and we did 'Back From Cali'. At that point, I said, 'You know, I need to do a tour on this and have somebody who can sing all this stuff, plus [SLASH'S] SNAKEPIT, plus VELVET REVOLVER, plus GUNS N' ROSES.' It's a tall order, but he seemed like the kind of guy who had the capability. I was expecting a 'no' answer, and he surprised me by saying 'yes.' I auditioned drummers and I met Brent Fitz through word of mouth, then he introduced me to Todd [Kerns, bass]. We rehearsed for a week, then we started touring and have been together ever since." Slash also talked in more detail about the writing process for "Living The Dream", including lead single "Driving Rain". "The nucleus for new material always comes from when we're on the road because we're all together," he said. "I'm always carrying a guitar around and recording different snippets of stuff and playing it for Myles. If he likes it, he'll come up with something. Then, at soundcheck, we'll come up with different ideas. When the tour is over, we'll go into a rehearsal and start going through the first phases of pre-production and working out arrangements. That's basically how it happens. With this particular record, we started that in 2015, then the GUNS thing came out of nowhere, then that took off. That ended up going on for a year and a half. But in the back of my mind, I was always planning that the first opportunity I got to go back into the studio with Myles and the guys and revisit the stuff we started to work on back in 2015, so in 2018, beginning of the year, we got together and put some of those old ideas together. I had written some new stuff over Christmas, so we got that. We just worked up this new record and we got done for May, which is when I had to go back into rehearsals with GUNS N' ROSES for the last European tour. This record has been done since May and I've been dying for it to come out and it's finally out." "Living The Dream" was released on September 21 via his Slash's label, Snakepit Records, in partnership with Roadrunner Records.

          Listen To New P.O.D. Song 'Listening For The Silence'      Cache   Translate Page      
"Listening For The Silence", a new song from San Diego, California-based rockers P.O.D. (PAYABLE ON DEATH), can be streamed below. The track is taken from the band's 10th studio disc, "Circles", which will be released on November 16 via Mascot Label Group. On "Circles", P.O.D. collaborated with the Los Angeles-based production duo called the Heavy (Jason Bell and Jordan Miller), who ensured the album is contemporary sounding without losing any of the band's core sonic signifiers. The rap-driven "Rockin' With The Best" has an old-school P.O.D. sound that nods to the BEASTIE BOYS, while "Always Southern California" is a reggae-inflected rocker and the groove-heavy "Soundboy Killa" is a hip-hop/metal hybrid. The dynamic title track even boasts moody electronic flourishes, glassy piano, and laid-back rapping verses. "On 'Circles', we didn't limit ourselves and say, 'Hey, we need to please the metal crowd, or the hardcore crowd, or the punk crowd,'" says frontman Sonny Sandoval. "We just wanted to play and write songs that we hope are relevant and catchy to a new audience, while, at the same time, still being true to ourselves." From a lyrical standpoint, P.O.D. kept a similar open mind, while turning to optimism for inspiration. The title track addresses trying to get out of an unhealthy cycle in which someone feels stuck, while "Dreaming" envisions seeking out a brighter future even if the present day is tough. Other songs grapple with how to navigate life's biggest challenges. "Home" emerged after Sandoval suddenly lost a close friend who was more like a brother to him. "Fly Away", meanwhile, acknowledges that all of us sometimes struggle, and need to rely on others for help. "We're looking for answers — and we're going to people to help us get through things — but at the same time, no one's perfect," Sandoval says. "Everybody's going through stuff, and we're all kind of on this same level and the same journey of experience and just trying to figure out our course of life." The idea of searching for a bright side has been a constant theme for P.O.D. over the years, both on newer songs such as "Lost In Forever" and "Beautiful" and on early hits "Alive", "Youth Of The Nation" and "Boom". Through it all, the members of P.O.D. — Sandoval, lead guitarist Marcos Curiel, bassist Traa Daniels and drummer Wuv Bernardo — have leaned on one another for support and creative inspiration. "We are touring and making music because it still means something to the people that are coming out to see us, and people that are still listening to our music," Sandoval says. "We're humbled, we're grateful, and we're thankful for people that still enjoy what we're doing." "Circles" track listing: 01. Rockin' With The Best 02. Always Southern California 03. Circles 04. Panic Attack 05. On The Radio 06. Fly Away 07. Listening For The Silence 08. Dreaming 09. Domino 10. Soundboy Killa 11. Home Over the span of two decades, P.O.D. has released 10 studio albums, including the triple-platinum "Satellite". They have had several hit songs, including "Southtown", "Alive", "Youth Of The Nation" and "Boom", and most recently with their Active Rock singles "Higher", "Beautiful" and "Lost In Forever", which reached No. 1. The band has been nominated for three Grammy Awards, racked up four #1 music videos, and contributed songs to numerous major motion picture soundtracks. The members of P.O.D. are also active members of a tight-knit music community, having collaborated with a diverse list of artists including Katy Perry, H.R. (BAD BRAINS), Mike Muir (SUICIDAL TENDENCIES), Sen Dog (CYPRESS HILL), and more. The band's tenth studio album, "The Awakening", was released in 2015.

Construções geminadas são muito comuns na Europa, mas os arquitetos do escritório DMVA jamais imaginariam que uma fachada de 2,4 metros de largura poderia ser transformada no menor hotel da Antuérpia. A construção do século 17 foi totalmente reformada para servir como um hotel de luxo, com quarto duplo e áreas sociais interligadas pelas escadas e estruturas de vidro.

Ao todo, são três andares para quarto, cozinha, banheiro com hidromassagem, estar e até um terraço. Nos fundos, foi construído um anexo para resguardar a área de serviços e deixar a estrutura original da casa apenas para a acomodação de hóspedes que queiram aproveitar o melhor do eixo cultural do bairro, próximo ao Grote Markt e ao Museu MAS, projetado pelo Neutelings Riedijk Architects.

Todas as partes originais do edifício, como as vigas e as paredes, são pintadas de branco, enquanto as novas adições, incluindo a porta da frente, as escadas e o terraço, são feitas de madeira com um acabamento exposto para deixar o contraste claro. Segundo os arquitetos, essa abordagem reflete os princípios da prática da honestidade material e também auxilia nos futuros acréscimos, caso necessário.

"A aventura está se tornando uma palavra-chave na indústria do turismo global", disse Verschueren ao Dezeen. "O conceito do One Room Hotel é baseado nisso. Acreditamos que o mercado para esse tipo de iniciativa crescerá nos próximos anos."

          Chính Trị Mỹ Với Chính Trị Việt Nam.      Cache   Translate Page      
Thứ bảy 6/10/2018 vừa qua cánh bảo thủ Mỹ vượt qua sóng gió tạo thành tích mới khi Thượng viện bỏ phiếu với tỷ lệ 50-48 chấp nhận ông Brett Kavanaugh vào vai trò thẩm phán Tối Cao Pháp Viện.

9 thẩm phán Tối Cao Pháp Viện Mỹ. Hình minh họa

Như vậy 5 trong số 9 thẩm phán Tối Cao Pháp Viện nay thuộc thuộc cánh bảo thủ, vì thế sẽ ảnh hưởng rất lớn đến chính trị và cấu trúc xã hội Mỹ.

Còn ở Việt Nam, đảng Cộng sản loan báo “100 phần 100” đại biểu tại Hội nghị Trung ương 8 đã "tín nhiệm giới thiệu" Tổng Bí thư Nguyễn Phú Trọng để đưa ra Quốc hội bầu làm Chủ tịch Nước.

Cả hai đều có liên quan chặt chẽ đến Hiến Pháp và đều có những điều đáng để tìm hiểu.


Vì sao gọi là bảo thủ Mỹ

Tối cao Pháp Viện là cơ quan có quyền lực cao nhất của Hoa Kỳ, giữ quyền quyết định các tranh tụng về luật liên bang và luật xuyên tiểu bang.

Đồng thời có thẩm quyền giải thích Hiến pháp, tuyên bố các đạo luật liên bang, đạo luật tiểu bang là vi hiến, hoặc tuyên bố các hoạt động của hành pháp liên bang và tiểu bang là vi hiến.

Thẩm phán Tối cao Pháp Viện gồm chín người được bổ nhiệm trọn đời bởi Tổng Thống và được phê chuẩn bởi Thượng viện.

Các thẩm phán giải thích Hiến Pháp và các đạo luật theo nghĩa gốc ban đầu tạo ra chính nó được xem là theo khuynh hướng bảo thủ.

Còn các thẩm phán giải thích ý nghĩa của Hiến Pháp theo hoàn cảnh, theo thời gian hoặc theo các tài liệu chứng cứ xung quanh việc ban hành một đạo luật được xem là theo khuynh hướng tự do cá nhân.

Cánh bảo thủ muốn duy trì một xã hội truyền thống chống lại những người theo chủ nghĩa tự do cá nhân đang được nhiều người trẻ thuộc đảng Dân Chủ ủng hộ.

Ông Kavanaugh là thẩm phán theo khuynh hướng bảo thủ, phục vụ tại Tòa Phúc thẩm Washington, DC từ năm 2006 tới nay nên khi Tổng Thống Trump bổ nhiệm đã gặp rất nhiều chống đối.

Việc ông Kavanaugh gia nhập Tối Cao Pháp Viện làm nghiêng cán cân Tối Cao Pháp Viện với tỷ lệ 5-4 về phía những thẩm phán bảo thủ.

Vì thế nhiều vấn đề đang gây tranh cãi như quyền phá thai, quyền hôn nhân đồng tính, quyền nhập cư, quyền chuyển giới tham gia quân đội Mỹ… nay phía bảo thủ có nhiều cơ hội để thắng thế hơn.

Thậm chí nhiều đạo luật đã thông qua nhưng còn nhiều tranh cãi nay có thể sẽ được mang ra xét lại.

Và khi một đạo luật liên bang được Tối Cao Pháp Viện thông qua đương nhiên sẽ áp dụng cho tất cả các tiểu bang.

Nhiều ý kiến cho rằng Tối cao Pháp viện Hoa Kỳ luôn bị “chính trị hóa” theo quyết định đảng chính trị đang thắng thế.

4 lý do tạo thành khuyết điểm kể trên là (1) thẩm phán do Tổng thống bổ nhiệm; (2) chỉ cần quá bán Thượng viện đồng thuận với Tổng Thống; (3) nhiệm kỳ cho các thẩm phán là trọn đời; và (4) mọi quyết định của Tối Cao Pháp Viện chỉ cần quá bán đồng thuận.

Muốn thay đổi Tối Cao Pháp Viện cần thay đổi Hiến pháp Hoa Kỳ một điều gần như không thể xảy ra.


Việt Nam Ngày Nay …

Khác với ở Mỹ, cánh bảo thủ tại Việt Nam bảo vệ chủ nghĩa xã hội, nếu có thay đổi tạm thời thì phải lấy mô hình thể chế của Trung cộng làm định hướng.

Quốc hội nước Cộng hòa Xã hội  Chủ nghĩa Việt Nam

Trên danh nghĩa Quốc Hội là cơ quan quyền lực tối cao, không ai có quyền kiểm soát hoạt động của Quốc hội, phủ quyết các đạo luật, các quyết định của Quốc hội.

Trên thực tế, quyền lực tối cao thuộc về Bộ Chính Trị, Trung Ương Đảng biểu quyết theo thủ tục và Quốc Hội luật hóa quyết định Bộ Chính Trị.

Tư Pháp, Lập Pháp, Hành Pháp, Mặt Trận, Báo Chí, Toàn Xã Hội… đều do Bộ Chính Trị quyết định.

Quyết định Bộ Chính Trị “vi hiến” hay không là điều không cần phải bàn tới vì Hiến Pháp chỉ là hình thức.

Bởi thế mới có việc Tổng bí thư Nguyễn Phú Trọng vừa nắm tổ chức đảng, vừa nắm quân đội, lại vừa nắm công an, trong “tình huống” hiện nay phải nắm luôn vai trò Chủ tịch Nước.

Hội nghị Trung ương 8 còn quyết định thành lập 5 tiểu ban chuẩn bị cho Đại hội lần thứ 13, trong đó Tổng Bí thư Nguyễn Phú Trọng nắm luôn hai tiểu ban là Trưởng Tiểu ban Văn kiện và Trưởng Tiểu ban Nhân sự.

Dường như đảng Cộng sản nay không còn ai có đủ tài, đủ đức, đủ lý luận để bảo vệ chủ nghĩa xã hội nên ít nhất 6 chức vụ quan trọng phải trao cho ông Trọng đã 74 tuổi đời.


Việt Nam Cộng Hòa khi xưa…

Trong hoàn cảnh chiến tranh Hiến pháp Việt Nam Cộng Hòa khi xưa quy định thẩm phán cho Tối cao Pháp viện có nhiệm kỳ sáu năm, luân phiên mỗi ba năm bầu lại 6 người.

Ứng cử viên thẩm phán phải là (1) công dân Việt Nam; (2) 10 năm thâm niên làm chánh án, biện lý, hoặc luật sư; (3) không có quá khứ chống chính phủ hoặc hoạt động thân cộng; và (4) nếu là phái nam thì phải hợp lệ quân dịch.

Các ứng cử viên được Luật sư đoàn, Công tố đoàn và Thẩm phán đoàn cứu xét. Mỗi Đoàn chọn 50 hội viên, tổng cộng là 150 người xem xét danh sách ứng cử viên, bàn thảo và chọn lấy 30 người để trình lên Quốc hội.

Quốc hội sẽ bỏ phiếu chọn 6 người rồi chuyển sang Phủ Tổng thống phê chuẩn.

Những quyết định của Tối cao Pháp Viện như tuyên bố một đạo luật bất hợp hiến hoặc giải tán một chánh đảng phải hội đủ đa số ba phần tư (3/4) tổng số Thẩm phán Tối cao Pháp Viện đồng thuận.

Vụ án Dân biểu Trần Ngọc Châu bị bắt vào tháng 2/1970 vì tội liên lạc với một gián điệp cộng sản Bắc Việt là một vụ án điển hình cho thấy cách làm việc của Tối Cao Pháp Viện.

Khi ông Châu bị bắt với bằng chứng được quay phim, việc trước tiên là Tổng thống Nguyễn Văn Thiệu kêu gọi Hạ viện truất bỏ đặc quyền miễn tố của Dân biểu Châu.

Hạ viện chấp thuận và thông qua với 102/135 phiếu thuận.

Do trước khi được bầu làm Dân biểu, ông Châu là Trung tá Quân đội nên ông được trả về Quân Đội và Tòa án Quân sự tuyên án ông Châu 20 năm tù.

Thượng viện đệ đơn lên Tối cao Pháp viện để xét lại vụ án vì cho là “bất hợp hiến”.

Tòa Tối cao Pháp viện xem xét và tuyên bố việc truất bỏ đặc quyền miễn tố của Hạ viện là bất hợp hiến vì Hạ viện chỉ bỏ phiếu kín mà không mang ra Quốc Hội tranh luận công khai.

Tòa Tối cao Pháp viện còn tuyên bố tòa án quân sự chỉ có quyền trên giới quân nhân tại ngũ, ông Châu phạm luật khi đang là dân sự, nên tòa án quân sự không có quyền tuyên án ông Châu.

Tòa Tối Cao Pháp Viện quyết định thả ông Châu, nhưng Bộ Quốc phòng viện cớ an ninh quốc gia nên vẫn giam Châu đợi ngày tái xét.

Vào tháng 1-1973, ông Châu được trao trả như tù binh cho phía Bắc Việt, nhưng ông Châu cương quyết không chịu theo cộng sản và Trưởng uỷ ban tù binh Bắc Việt không nhận ông Châu.

Đến tháng 6-1974, ông Châu được chính quyền miền Nam trả tự do.

Sau 30/4/1975, ông Châu bị cộng sản bắt tù “cải tạo” 3 năm vì tội là cựu Trung Tá và cựu Dân Biểu Việt Nam Cộng Hòa.

Khi được thả ông cùng gia đình vượt biên sang Mỹ và hiện đang sống tại Los Angeles.

Trong hoàn cảnh chiến tranh vụ án cho thấy Tối Cao Pháp Viện quyết định theo đúng Hiến Pháp và luật pháp Việt Nam Cộng Hòa. Một bài học đáng được ghi nhận.


Tổng Thống Trump Liên Tục Thắng Thế

Chỉ chưa đầy 2 năm tại chức ông đã bổ nhiệm được 2 thẩm phán vào Tối Cao Pháp Viện mang lại nhiều lợi thế cho ông về tư pháp cũng như về chính trị.

Kinh tế Hoa Kỳ tăng trưởng với tỷ lệ 4,1%, tỷ lệ thất nghiệp giảm xuống chỉ còn 3,7% trong tháng 9, đạt mức thấp nhất kể từ tháng 12/1969.

Kinh tế phát triển tạo niềm tin của người tiêu dùng, niềm tin cho doanh nghiệp và niềm tin cho thị trường chứng khoán liên tục gia tăng đạt những mức kỷ lục mới.

Các hiệp định thương mại lần lượt được Tổng thống Trump thương lượng lại với các nước, như Nam Hàn, Mexico, Canada, EU, Nhật, Ấn,… đang mang lại nhiều lợi ích hơn cho nước Mỹ.

Bắc Hàn ngừng thử hỏa tiễn, vào bàn đàm phán, và hôm qua 8/10/2018 Ngoại trưởng Mỹ Mike Pompeo loan báo ông Kim Jong-un sẵn sàng cho phép các phái đoàn quốc tế vào thanh tra các điểm thử hạt nhân và hỏa tiễn.

Khủng bố quốc tế mất khả năng ngóc đầu dậy.

Nhật, Nam Hàn, Đài Loan và cả Âu Châu đồng ý tăng ngân sách Quốc Phòng chia sẻ gánh nặng Quân Sự với Mỹ.

Đồng thời, Mỹ đã tạo dựng một liên minh nhiều quốc gia bao vây quân sự Trung cộng tại Biển Đông.

Với Trung cộng ngoài việc trừng phạt thương mãi, việc trừng phạt tài chính đang được mở ra.

Hoa Kỳ cho đóng băng tài sản tại Mỹ của quan chức cấp cao và doanh nghiệp nhà nước có liên quan đến mua bán vũ khí với Nga. Đồng thời giới hạn chính phủ các nước đồng minh thương mãi, doanh nghiệp hoặc cá nhân giao thương với Trung cộng. Và có thể cấm Trung cộng sử dụng đồng Mỹ Kim trong các giao dịch ngoại hối.

Trên diễn đàn Liên Hiệp Quốc Tổng Thống Trump công khai kêu gọi tất cả các quốc gia trên thế giới chống lại chủ nghĩa xã hội và những khổ nạn mà chủ nghĩa xã hội mang đến cho con người.

Lời kêu gọi của ông Trump không chỉ nhắm đến các quốc gia như Venezuela, Trung cộng, Việt Nam,… mà còn nhắm đến khuynh hướng xã hội chủ nghĩa thuộc cánh tả của đảng Dân Chủ đang được giới trẻ Mỹ ủng hộ.

Những ngày sắp tới ông Trump và đảng Cộng Hòa sẽ phải nỗ lực thêm để trong kỳ bầu cử tháng tới có thể giữ được các ghế ở cả Thượng viện lẫn Hạ viện để tiếp tục điều hành quốc gia trong thế mạnh.

Nhìn chung Mỹ là quốc gia dân chủ nên sinh hoạt chính trị lúc nào cũng sôi nổi, những chính trị gia lúc nào cũng phải năng nổ để liên tục chiến thắng, để được quyền tiếp tục điều hành đất nước.


Trở lại với Việt Nam…

Cũng chỉ hơn 2 năm từ ngày Thủ Tướng Nguyễn Tấn Dũng bỏ cuộc chơi thì tình trạng "chán Đảng, khô Đoàn, nhạt chính trị" càng ngày càng trở nên thảm khốc.

Chính trị Việt Nam ở cấp tối cao lọt vào “tình huống” vô cùng bế tắc, Tổng Bí Thư Nguyễn Phú Trọng phải nhận lãnh 6 chức vụ mà chức vụ nào cũng đều rất quan trọng không ai có thể thay thế được.

Các quốc gia cộng sản, trong đó có cộng sản Việt Nam, đang là điểm nhắm của Tổng Thống Trump.

Chính trị nước Mỹ vì thế đều ảnh hưởng đến chính trị thế giới và ảnh hưởng mạnh đến chính trị Việt Nam.

Thắng lợi của ông Trump đồng thời cũng là thắng lợi của người dân tại các quốc gia cộng sản.

Cơ hội để Việt Nam có tự do dân chủ mỗi lúc một rõ hơn, đòi hỏi người Việt cả trong lẫn ngoài nước nỗ lực hơn đẩy mạnh tiến trình dân chủ hóa Việt Nam.

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

I was living in Harlem.

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

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

We always said our meeting was destined.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We were one.

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

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

We had so many things in common.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Get up and run!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ephemera at The Wende Museum

During my brother, Ken's visit to Los Angeles we managed to sneak in a visit to The Wende Museum in Culver City. I've been wanting to visit ever since it opened in the former U.S. National Guard Armory in Culver City in 2017. It takes out of town visitors to prompt exploration of our city!
Ken Bloom at The Wende Museum, Culver City

The Wende Museum of the Cold War is more than just a building holding artifacts, it is an art museum, historical archive, musical and educational institution. "Wende" is a German word meaning "transformation," a period of transition and change leading up to the toppling of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991This fascinating museum was founded in 2002 by Justinian Jampol, an L.A. native (and boy wonder) who traveled and studied in Eastern Europe. He started to collect everything he could find related to the Soviet Union and the former Eastern Bloc. Historical artifacts from this era were being destroyed during this time. Jampol's collection was brought back to Los Angeles. He organized the collection and established a non-profit organization to fund it. Eventually, the collection was moved to Culver City.
Storage and Library

The Wende is easy to find. It's just west of Veteran's Memorial Auditorium on Culver Boulevard. There is plenty of free parking surrounding the building.
Cultural Artifacts



I was most impressed with the design of the interior and exterior of the Museum. Depending on the current exhibition, the huge building is divided into hallways and rooms that are easy to navigate. At the east end of the building is a lovely garden area with benches, meeting rooms and offices.

          Los Angeles Dodgers counting on Manny Machado to push them over Series hump      Cache   Translate Page      

ATLANTA – Even with all their star power and deep pockets, all their booming hitters and ace pitchers, the Los Angeles Dodgers are approaching three decades since their last World Series championship.

They’re making another run at that elusive title.

Only this time, Manny Machado is along for the ride.

The slugging shortstop hit a three-run homer that wrapped up a 6-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Monday, sending Los Angeles to the N.L. Championship Series for the third year in a row and fourth time in six seasons.

This is what the Dodgers had in mind when they acquired the free agent-to-be from the lowly Baltimore Orioles in July.

They’re hoping Machado is the one who turns Tinseltown into Titletown for the first time since 1988.

“Can’t say enough about him,” Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said. “A player of his caliber, there are so many expectations put on him.”

Machado had only three hits in a 3-1 division series victory over the Braves, but two of them were homers. He finished with six RBIs.

“We prepared ourselves to get here,” Machado said. “We’re not going to stop till we get what we want.”

Clearly, nothing less than a World Series title will do.

While the Dodgers went through the customary celebration that follows any postseason victory – they doled out T-shirts and caps, posed for pictures in the middle of SunTrust Park, then doused themselves with beer in the clubhouse – the focus turned quickly to the next round.

The Dodgers will face the Brewers in the NLCS. Game 1 is Friday night in Milwaukee.

“We all know that there’s a lot more work to be done,” Roberts said. “We have eight more wins to go.”

Los Angeles spent much of the season locked in a tight race with division rivals Colorado and Arizona and needed a one-game playoff with the Rockies to clinch its sixth straight N.L. West title.

“We took a hard path to get to this point, but I do think it made us stronger and kind of galvanized our team,” Roberts said.

It certainly helps to have a player of Machado’s caliber bolstering an already potent lineup. The Dodgers hit a franchise-record 235 homers during the regular season and added eight more in the NLDS.

“They’re a very powerful team,” Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said. “It’s what they’ve done all year is hit home runs. We’re not built like that yet.”

The Baby Braves were thoroughly overmatched in their first postseason appearance since 2013, hitting .154 overall and scoring eight runs. Although the future looks bright for a team that pulled off a massive rebuilding job much quicker than expected, Atlanta was not quite ready to contend with a team of the Dodgers’ quality.

Los Angeles had too much power, too much depth, too much pitching.

Not to mention too much Machado.

“It was a great ride,” Snitker said. “We took a huge step forward this year. We had some very young players get a lot of great experience, both during the regular season and the postseason. And we have some really good players coming up. I really am excited about the future of the Atlanta Braves right now.”

The Dodgers are locked firmly in the present.

This is a franchise desperate to win one more game than it did a season ago, when the Houston Astros took Game 7 of the World Series at Dodger Stadium.

That’s why they acquired Machado.

“Coming over from Baltimore midway through the season – new ball club, new atmosphere, new teammates, new coaching staff, new front office, I mean, it’s always a bit of an adjustment,” Machado said. “But they’ve been nothing but amazing to us, to myself and my family. And coming here to a winning ballclub that’s been determined the whole way since last year to get into this situation and further, I’m just sitting here enjoying everything, enjoying the ride.”

Machado wasn’t the only in-season acquisition to play a key role in the clinching victory over the Braves. David Freese, picked up from Pittsburgh minutes before the trade deadline, came through with a pinch-hit, two-run single that put the Dodgers ahead to stay in the sixth.

The MVP of St. Louis’ improbable victory in the 2011 World Series, Freese is eager to take part in another magical postseason run.

“You never know what this game is going to give you, what opportunities arise for you,” Freese said. “You just gotta be ready.”

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

by The Solo Meeple

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

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

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

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

Set-up

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

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

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

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

They were dealt the following city cards:

Medic

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

Researcher

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

Quarantine specialist

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

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


Here's how things stack up at the start.

Initial city infection.

3 Cubes

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

2 Cubes


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

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

1 Cube

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

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

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

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

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

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


This is how things stand after the initial infection phase.

Round 1

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

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

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

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


Medic city draw


• Red - Beijing
• Yellow - Buenos Aires

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

Medic infection draw

• Blue - St. Petersburg
• Red - Osaka

Researcher

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

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

Researcher city draw

• Red - Taipei
• Black - Mumbai

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

Researcher infection draw

• Red - Manila
• Black - Moscow

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

Quarantine specialist

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

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

Quarantine Specialist city draw

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

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

Quarantine Specialist infection draw

• Yellow - Khartoum
• Yellow - Kinshasa

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

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

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

Round 2


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


Medic

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

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

Medic city draw

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

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

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

Medic infection draw

• Yellow - Los Angeles
• Red - Shanghai

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

Researcher

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

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

Researcher city draw

• Blue - Chicago
• Blue - New York

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

Researcher infection draw

• Black - Moscow
• Black - Baghdad

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

Quarantine Specialist

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

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

Quarantine Specialist city draw

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

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

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

Quarantine Specialist infection draw

• Red - Beijing
• Red - Osaka

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

Round 3


Characters and cards for round 3.



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


Medic

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

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

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

Medic city draw

• Blue - St. Petersburg
• Yellow - Johannesburg

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

Medic infection draw

• Blue - St. Petersburg
• Red - Manila

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

Researcher

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

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

Researcher city draw

• Red - Bangkok
• Blue - Milan

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

Researcher infection draw

• Yellow - Bogota
• Blue - Milan

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

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

Quarantine Specialist

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

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

Quarantine Specialist city draw

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

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

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

Quarantine Specialist infection draw

• Yellow - Mexico City
• Black - Chennai

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

Round 4





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

Medic

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

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

Medic city draw

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

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

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

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

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

Medic infection draw

• Yellow - Khartoum
• Yellow - Kinshasa

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

Researcher

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

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

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

Researcher city draw

• Black - Istanbul
• Red - Seoul

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

Researcher infection draw

• Yellow - Bogota
• Yellow - Mexico City

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

Quarantine Specialist

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

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

Quarantine Specialist city draw

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

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

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

Quarantine Specialist infection draw (now increased to three cards)

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

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

Round 5





Medic

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

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

Medic city draw

• Red - Ho Chi Minh City
• Black - Riyadh

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

Medic infection draw

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

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

Researcher

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

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

Researcher city draw

• Red - Manila
• Black - Kolkata

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

Researcher infection draw

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

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

Quarantine Specialist

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

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

Quarantine Specialist city draw

• Yellow- Santiago
• Blue - Atlanta

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

Quarantine Specialist infection draw

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

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

Round 6





Medic

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

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

Medic city draw

• Yellow - Sao Paulo
• Yellow - Lima

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

Medic infection draw

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

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

Researcher

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

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

Researcher city draw

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

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

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

Researcher infection draw

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

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

Quarantine Specialist

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

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

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

Quarantine Specialist city draw

• Black - Karachi
• Blue - Essen

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

Quarantine Specialist infection draw

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

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

Round 7





Medic

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

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

Medic city draw

• Yellow - Lagos
• Black - Delhi

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

Medic infection draw

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

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

Researcher

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

The End

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

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

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

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

Ever wanted the inside scoop on crashing that exclusive party, getting better than average dope, and spending the night with someone you'd be ashamed to be seen with the next morning?

Filmmaker Paul Sapiano answers your questions on these and many other critical areas of the party lifestyle in this satiric comedy. Presented in part as a faux-documentary and in part as the story of a typical night in the life of a handful of Los Angeles nightlife mavens.

The Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down offers "useful" advice on getting into the club, scamming free drinks, tipping the bar staff, dealing with uncooperative drug dealers, talking your way into an all-star after party, how to attract women by pretending to be gay, and getting rid of last night's pickup in the cold light of the morning.

The Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down received its world premiere at the 2006 Los Angeles Film Festival.

          Jimmy Butler's absence from the Wolves is still excused; here's why that's important      Cache   Translate Page      
As we arrive at the three-week anniversary of Jimmy Butler’s Los Angeles meeting with Tom Thibodeau during which Butler requested a trade from the Timberwolves, all sorts of uncomfortable questions need to be explored. One of them: What happens if the Wolves dig in and decline to trade Butler? What is Butler’s end game in that scenario? I can’t imagine any pleasant outcome in that case, nor do I think it’s very plausible. Butler being traded soon, as much as Thibodeau might not want to, is still the most likely and obvious outcome. But if not … well, Door 1 is Butler somehow comes back and the atmosphere at Target Center is overwhelmingly toxic. The team is likely fractured and plays poorly, and even if they play well there’s a cloud hanging over the whole thing because Butler will walk away for nothing at some point. Door 2 is more intriguing but no more pleasant: What if Butler remains steadfast in his trade demand and refuses to report to the team? Thibodeau at media day two weeks ago said Butler needed more time to get into shape after offseason hand surgery. That was the official reason he wasn’t in camp, though everyone assumed it was just a convenient excuse to keep Butler away while a trade is pursued. He said at the time Butler would be expected to rejoin the team when healthy — maybe a week, the coach said — but here we are two weeks later. I asked Thibodeau on Tuesday if Butler — who has been working out in various local gyms for the past two weeks and was spotted again Tuesday at the Life Time Fitness in Plymouth — is still excused from being away from the team. Thibodeau said yes. When asked if there is a point at which the absence would be unexcused, Thibodeau said: “It’s fluid. We’re always going to do what’s best for the team. That’s the important thing for everyone to understand. If that means he’s here, then he’ll be here. If that means he’s not here, then he’s not here.” Per league rules, if Butler’s absence becomes unexcused, he has 30 days to report to the team. MSN noted a couple weeks back that the big deal about that is if Butler doesn’t do that within 30 days, he won’t accrue a year of service in the league — and therefore couldn’t opt out of his contract and become a free agent next year, when he clearly wants to cash in with a big payday. That 30-day clock presumably has not started ticking as long as his absence is excused due to injury. So here’s where Butler’s hand injury — even if it’s a sham — comes into play. The Star Tribune and other outlets have reported that Butler’s meeting three weeks ago with Thibodeau was not the first time he expressed a desire to move on from Minnesota. It might have been the most definitive occasion, a line in the sand of sorts, but the sentiment had been communicated this summer. So let’s travel back to July 26, and this strange-seeming (at the time) and very short news release sent out by the Timberwolves: “Minnesota Timberwolves guard/forward Jimmy Butler underwent a successful, elective right hand procedure on Tuesday, July 24, 2018. Butler has already returned to offseason activities.” I remember thinking it seemed strange at the time because why would there be an announcement about a procedure that seemed so minor? In retrospect, two things were possibly happening: 1) Butler was establishing on the record that he had an offseason procedure and 2) The Wolves in announcing it were trying to downplay it as much as possible by describing it as elective and saying Butler has already returned to offseason duties. The first part seems most important right now because that hand is being used as the official excuse as to why Butler isn’t with the team. And as long as Butler is injured with a previously established condition, or can say he is still injured without being challenged, he can collect paychecks and accrue his time. Butler could have chosen a knee procedure since he was coming off a season in which he missed time with a meniscus injury, but maybe a knee would have been a red flag for other teams? Kawhi Leonard perhaps did some version of this with San Antonio last year, when he played just nine games with a mysterious calf injury before being traded this offseason to Toronto. Pro Basketball Talk noted that Mo Williams pulled something similar. Would the ultra-competitive Butler really be willing to sit out an entire year in his prime just to prove a point? Hard to say. Maybe even doubtful? But that’s his leverage right now, and the worst of all worlds for the Wolves is that Butler never plays another minute here AND they recoup nothing for him in a trade.

          Warriors reciben a LeBron      Cache   Translate Page      
El mejor equipo de la liga -favorito para ganar un tercer título en forma seguida- y el mejor jugador del circuito - quien encabeza la encuesta entre los gerentes generales para ser el MVP de la próxima temporada- se han reunido ahora en la División del Pacífico de la Conferencia Oeste de la NBA.

Es lo que ha provocado la llegada de LeBron James (27.5 ppj, 8.6 rpj, 9.1 apj) a los Lakers de Los Angeles con un contrato de cuatro años y 153 millones que lo llevó desde su natal Cleveland a la meca del espectáculo y el cine.
En esa parte de los Estados Unidos lo esperan sus archirrivales de los Warriors de Golden State liderados por Kevin Durant (26.4 ppj) y Stephen Curry (26.4 ppj). Los orientados por Steve Kerr hicieron el movimiento más sorprendente al contratar por un año al lesionado DeMarcus Cousins (25.2 ppj, 12.9 rpj), considerado el mejor centro de la liga, quien vio sus bonos reducidos debido a la lesión en un talón que lo mantendrá fuera de acción por gran parte de la primera mitad.
Tras verse las caras en cuatros finales seguidas (Cavaliers-Warriors) ahora serán más comunes los choques entre el reconocido como mejor jugador de la actualidad y el que ha demostrado ser el mejor equipo con tres coronas en cuatro campañas.
Los Clippers de Los Angeles -que dijeron adiós con las manos vacías al inconsistente y desafortunado grupo integrado por Chris Paul, JJ Redick, Blake Griffin y DeAndre Jordan- intentarán competir en medio de una reestructuración, mientras que los Suns de Phoenix y los Kings de Sacramento cambiarán victorias por el desarrollo de sus jóvenes talentos en la búsqueda de la experiencia que los haga competir en el más corto plazo.
Orden pronosticado: 1 - Warriors 2 - Lakers 3 - Clippers 4 - Suns 5 - Kings
Caras Nuevas: Además de LeBron, los Lakers contrataron a Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, Javale McGee y Michael Beasley para unirlos a los prometedores Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram y Josh Hart. Cousins se junta con Durant, Curry, Draymond Green y Klay Thompson para formar un quinteto All-Star. El centro Marcin Gortat y los delanteros Luc Mbah a Moute y Mike Scott se integran a los Clippers. Los Suns dan la bienvenida a Trevor Ariza y los suplentes Richaun Holmes y Darrell Arthur mientras que los Kings abrieron sus puertas a Yogi Ferrell, Nemanja Bjelica y Ben McLemore (de regreso).

          'Under the Silver Lake': el director de 'It Follows' firma una magistral historia detectivesca de conspiranoia pop      Cache   Translate Page      

'Under the Silver Lake': el director de 'It Follows' firma una magistral historia detectivesca de conspiranoia pop#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Quizás una de las pistas más claras para empezar a tirar del largo hilo de referencias que maneja 'Under the Silver Lake' es la canción 'What's the frequency, Kenneth?', de uno de los mejores discos de la banda REM, 'Monster', de 1994. Es un extraño tema, que se ralentiza en su tramo final porque el bajista sufrió un ataque de apendicitis en la grabación, que no llegó a repetirse. La letra habla de forma críptica sobre la desconexión entre los conocimientos de los adultos y los jóvenes, y su origen es una extrañísima anécdota: el periodista televisivo Dan Rather fue golpeado en la calle por un desconocido que no paraba de reptir la frase sin sentido.

Pero hay más: debido al impacto de esa anécdota, durante un tiempo, la frase fue sinónimo en Estados Unidos del popular WTF para expresar sorpresa (ojo a las iniciales), y la gente joven usó alternativamente 'What the fuck, Kenneth' como latiguillo. Antes que en el tema de REM, la frase había aparecido en 1993 en la obra maestra del cómic alternativo 'Como guante de seda forjado en hierro', de Daniel Clowes. En él se cuenta un misterio urbano rebosante de pistas que hunden sus raíces en la arqueología pop pero que no llevan a ningún sitio. Es una de las influencias más claras y obvias de 'Under the Silver Lake', en argumento y tono.

Pese a las apariencias, 'Under the Silver Lake' no lanza al espectador una avalancha de guiños que solo interpretarán los iniciados, pero están ahí para quien quiera exprimirlos: la portada de 'Playboy' que conecta con 'Agujero negro' de Charles Burns, las escogidas citas cinéfilas con retranca, los guiños a Lynch y sobre tod a 'Mullholland Drive', discos que giran al revés y temas pop con mitología esotérica al fondo. Los temas que trata 'Under the Silver Lake' son tan sugestivos y abiertos a interpretación que incluso dialogan con referencias que quizás su director y guionista, David Robert Mitchell, no ha previsto: por ejemplo, las historias sobre códigos secretos entre vagabundos se complementaban en mi cabeza con el cómic 'The Lonesome Go', de Tim Lane, que quizás Mitchell no ha leído. O sí.

En cualquier caso, ese diálogo con otros medios (uno de los temas de la película: toda la cultura popular está interconectada) añade profundidad al film, pero no es imprescindible para disfrutarlo. El esqueleto de la película de Mitchell es una investigación casi detectivesca (otra referencia: la abundante mitología noir clásica ambientada en Los Angeles) a manos de un joven aburrido y en paro (Andrew Garfdield). Arranca con la sospecha de que a una amiga le puede haber pasado algo oscuro, lo que le conduce a grandes revelaciones acerca de las cosas que importan.

Underthesilver2#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Y las cosas que importan aquí tienen un inconfundible aliento generacional, tema que Mitchell ha tratado con distintas aproximaciones a lo largo de toda su carrera, desde su primera película -la estupenda 'The Myth of the American Sleepover'- a su revelación internacional, ese ya clásico moderno que es 'It Follows'. La angustia juvenil de sentirse desplazado y destinado a no encajar en el mundo adulto es tratada siempre por Mitchell con ligereza, pero también con respeto y comprensión. Quizás 'Under the Silver Lake' sea la que tiene una forma más humorística, pero un mensaje más amargo: da igual lo revolucionaria que quiere parecer la cultura juvenil, que siempre va a haber un adulto vigilando.

Y eso implica desde el nirvanazo a los comics de superhéroes, desde las cintas perdidas de Marylin a la cultura de los fanzines (que, parece decir Mitchell, contienen las claves para desencriptarlo todo) pasando por las revistas de videojuegos o esa parte de la letra de 'I love Rock'n'roll' que cantan en la película y que dice "I love rock n' roll / So put another dime in the jukebox, baby". Más claro, agua. Todo está conectado, y eso ya nos lo habían dicho otras veces, pero pocas de forma tan inteligente, divertida y apasionante como en 'Under the Silver Lake'

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.

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.

          Kelsey Lu To Join Oneohtrix Point Never: MYRIAD Performance At Walt Disney Concert Hall      Cache   Translate Page      

Kelsey Lu will make a special appearance in two songs at the West Coast premiere of Oneohtrix Point Never's MYRIAD performance at Walt Disney Concert Hall on Monday, October 22, 2018. Examining disorienting forms at the intersection of theater, installation art, and musical performance, and imagined from the perspective of an alien intelligence, MYRIAD explores film and television tropes, abstract sculpture, game ephemera, poetry, apocryphal histories, internet esoterica, and philosophies of being. It looks toward the possibilities of the future while considering the conflict between today's civilization and the environment.

Lu performed keyboards on "Manifold" and "Last Known Image of a Song" from Oneohtrix Point Never's most recent album Age Of, released via Warp on June 1. In May, she joined Oneohtrix Point Never as a guest artist in the world premiere of MYRIAD, performed over three sold out dates at the Park Avenue Armory in New York. A native of North Carolina, Lu is a cellist, singer, and activist who has collaborated with many of her peers, including Grace Wales Bonner, Sampha, and Florence + The Machine.

Daniel Lopatin, known as Oneohtrix Point Never, is a musician, composer, Mercury Prize-nominated producer, and label founder of Software Recording Company, who works from Brooklyn, New York. His latest original film score, for Good Time (dir. Josh and Benny Safdie), premiered in official competition at 2017 Cannes Film Festival, where it received Best Soundtrack Award. He has collaborated with numerous artists, including James Blake, Anohni, Ismael Butler, Sofia Coppola, Kelsey Lu, and Iggy Pop. His production credits include Anohni, FKA Twigs, David Byrne, and Nine Inch Nails, among others.

The MYRIAD ensemble includes Daniel Lopatin (vocals, electronics), Eli Keszler (drumset, sensory triggers, auxiliary percussion), Kelly Moran (keys), and Aaron David Ross (keys, vocal synth, foley triggers) and features live visuals and sculpture from longtime collaborator Nate Boyce.


Monday, October 22, 2018, at 8:00 PM. Walt Disney CONCERT HALL 111 S. Grand Avenue, Los Angeles. Tickets are available at laphil.com, in person at the Walt Disney Concert Hall Box Office, or by phone at 323 850 2000.
