          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.

          '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?

          New Data Shows Federal Reserve Is Causing More Inequality      Cache   Translate Page      

Back in August, Bloomberg interviewed Karen Petrou about her research on quantitative easing and the Fed's policies since the 2008 financial crisis. What she has discovered has not been encouraging for people who aren't already high-income, and in recent research presented to the New York Fed, she concluded "Post-crisis monetary and regulatory policy had an unintended but nonetheless dramatic impact on the income and wealth divides.”

This assessment is based on her own work, but also on a 2018 report released by the Minneapolis Fed.1  The report showed that both income and wealth growth in the US have been much better for higher-income households in recent decades

Notably, when indexed to 1971 (the year Nixon ended the last link between gold and the dollar) we can see the disparity between the top wealth groups and other groups:

income_wealth.PNG
 

Petrou continues:

What did we learn [from the Minneapolis Fed report]? This new dataset shows clearly that U.S. wealth inequality is the worst it has been throughout the entire U.S. post-war period. We also know now that the U.S. middle class is even more “hollowed out” than we thought in terms of income, with any gains made by the lower-middle class sharply reversed after 2007.

Indeed, the report concludes: "...half of all American households have less wealth today in real terms than the median household had in 1970."

A closer look at income data also suggests that income growth has been especially anemic since 2007. Using data from the Census Bureau's 2017 report on income and poverty, we find that incomes for the 90th percentile are increasingly pulling away from both the median (50th percentile) income and from the 20th-percentile income.2

income_percentile.PNG
 

The household income for the 20th percentile increased 70 percent since 1971, while it has only increased 20 percent at the 20th percentile.

Of course, we might think, "we should be happy that the 20th-percentile income went up by 20 percent!" True enough, but as we can see by merely eyeballing the graph, most of that income growth at the lower income levels occurred before the year 2000. Incomes haven't moved much since then.

Indeed, since the year 2000, income increased 12 percent for the 90th percentile, but only 2.4 percent for the median household. It declined 3.7 percent at the 20th percentile

since2000.PNG
 

Moreover, Petrou notes,

the latest census data show that U.S. median household income in 2016 rose in part because more families have more wage-earners. Two low-wage jobs may seem like more employment, but they are reflecting the ever-greater struggle lower-income Americans have making ends meet.

Similarly, the overall wealth data offers little to get excited about. As noted here at mises.org last month, median wealth in the US is still well below the peak levels pre-2007.

wolff1_0.PNG
 

That's according to Edward Wolff's 2007 report. According to the Fed's 2017 survey on consumer finances, median wealth reached $97,300, which is still down from 2007's level of $139,700. Those in the 90th percentile experienced much more growth in wealth, with an increase from $1,054,000 in 2007 to $1,186,000 in 2016.3

What Role Does the Fed Have in All of This?

As the Federal Reserve has become more interventionist, more inflationary, and more prone to regulate the private sector, incomes have stagnated. For example, gaps in wealth an income have been growing since the 1980s, but they worsen significantly over the past decade as monetary policy became more and more inflationary and activist.

Petrou adds:

It’s common knowledge that income inequality in the U.S. has been getting increasingly worse since 1980. But what I’ve been pointing out in some of my blog posts is that it became hugely worse after the financial crisis. Were there underlying issues pre-2008? Absolutely. But we had more of a middle class even in 2006 than we do now. ... [I]f you look at the Minneapolis Fed data, as well as many other analyses, [growth in inequality] happens gradually prior to 2008. Then it actually flattens out in 2008 because rich people lost money in the crash, which narrowed the inequality gap. But starting in 2010, the gap widens dramatically.

The Fed became far more active in its interventions after 2008, leading to a variety of consequences:

The Fed did two things with huge inequality implications. First, with its massive quantitative easing, it sucked $4.5 trillion of assets out of the banking system. The idea was that it would empty out the bank balance sheets so that they would start to make loans. And that didn’t happen —initially the banks were too weak, and as they recovered, the rules created significant impediments. If you look at who is getting loans it is large corporations, not small businesses. Second, the Fed’s low-interest policy gave rise to yield-chasing. And what has the stock market done since 2010? Everybody who has money has seen their financial assets appreciate dramatically. Everybody who doesn’t have money, which is the bottom 90 percent, what is their principal source of wealth? Houses? House-price appreciation for expensive houses is way up since 2012. But overall, real U.S. house prices are down 10 percent.

On the regulatory side, the Fed made it more difficult for banks to cater to small businesses and other borrowers who are less well-known and higher risk. At the same time, the Fed has made it so that lenders don't have to worry about catering to a broad cross-section of borrowers precisely because the Fed's regulation and its too-big-to-fail doctrine lower the relative opportunity cost of ignoring borrowers at the lower end.

Meanwhile, ultra-low interest rate policy leads to yield-chasing which favors the already-wealthy at the expense of households of more ordinary means. Yield-chasing pulls money out of safer, more conservative investments — favored by people of modest means — and drives more investment toward riskier hard-to-access investment instruments.

Petrou describes some of the effects of yield-chasing:

As our research shows, QE exacerbates inequality because it takes safe assets out of the U.S. financial market, driving investors into equity markets and other financial assets not only to place their funds, but also in search of yields higher than those possible with ultra-low rates. The Fed hoped that soaking up $4.5 trillion in safe assets would stoke lending, and to a limited degree it did. However, new credit largely goes to large companies and other borrowers who have used it for purposes such as margin loans and stock buy-backs, not investment that would support strong employment growth. Growing household indebtedness in the U.S. is principally consumption or high-price housing driven and thus also a cause – not cure – of inequality.

And then there is the problem of asset-price inflation. This contributes to economic inequality in more than one way.

Asset price inflation is largely a result of inflationary monetary police in which newly created money continually enters the economy. This, in part, increases economic inequality through Cantillon effects.  As new money enters the economy, it benefits some people — usually high-income people — more than others. The new money does not enter the economy evenly and equally for everyone, but benefits certain politically-connected firms, institutions, and persons first. These people and organizations can then use the new money before prices in the economy adjust to reflect the new, larger money supply.

[RELATED: " How Money Production Can Worsen Income Inequality" by Jörg Guido Hülsmann.]

But there's more to asset-price inflation's role in inequality.

As Petrou notes above, "Everybody who has money has seen their financial assets appreciate dramatically." For those who already own sizable amounts of stocks, for instance, there won't be a problem. The same will be true of people who own real estate in fashionable and expensive markets.

Stocks — Not Housing — Are Favored by Post-2008 Inflationary Policy

And here's the rub: moderate- and low-income people tend to have much more of their wealth in residential real estate than in the stock market.

This can be seen in the Minneapolis Fed report which looks at how higher-income households have built wealth more in stock assets than in housing:

stock_wealth.PNG

Since 2007, wealth growth in housing has been negative while growth in stock-based wealth has remained positive:

asset_price_wealth.PNG

The overall effect here has been that higher-income investors, who have less of their wealth in homes — and more in stocks — have benefited more from the asset inflation of the past decade. The effect has been rising inequality.

So we might then ask ourselves: "why don't more moderate- and low-income people just buy more stocks?

Part is this is due to tax incentives, which reward putting money into housing rather than into stocks. Moreover, many people put money into homes rather than stocks because homes have the added perk of providing a place to live.

While it may be prudent — all else being equal — to buy less house while buying more in stocks, the Fed's ultra-low interest-rate policies make housing relatively more attractive as a place to park one's wealth.

And finally, investing in stocks remains something of a perk reserved to those with a surplus.  After all,  one can rarely elect to simply not spend money on housing. It's easy, though, to just not buy stocks. In most cases, money must be spent on housing in some form. And many elect to purchase housing, since, in many cases, houses are often perceived  — often with good reason — as a fairly safe and stable investment.

If we then add to this many deliberate efforts by both the Fed and the federal government to increase the homeownership rate, it's not hard to see why so many have ended up with a sizable portion of their wealth in housing.

While the central bank certainly can't be blamed for all the factors at play here, it nevertheless plays a significant role. Through a combination of inflationary monetary policy, regulation, and asset purchases, the Fed has made a sizable contribution to an economy that favors certain types of investments, certain institutions, and certain purchasing patterns.4 Fed policy now favors high-income earners and investors over low- or moderate- income earners and investors. The result has been a rapidly widening wealth an income gap over the past decade.

And all are perfectly numbered.

For years, successful men have reckoned
By this system, trained the self
To follow Lyndale and hang a right
At Fiftieth, into a neighborhood

El llamado porteo, que está de moda pero su existencia es casi histórica, permite el contacto constante del niño con la persona que lo carga. Los expertos destacan entre otros beneficios la reducción de dolores de espalda o lograr una conexión mayor con el pequeño.

El canal de Minneapolis (Minnesota, EE UU) colgó el pasado viernes en su página de Facebook el vídeo del momento que se ha hecho viral, con más de 1,2 millones de reproducciones.

          Vote Common Good-- On The Road      Cache   Translate Page      



We've been telling you about Vote Common Good ever since Ted Lieu and I sat down with the nascent group in a private room behind Ted's favorite restaurant. The tour started last week in Pennsylvania. Thursday it gets to Sioux City to rally with J.D. Scholten at the Grandview Park Bandshell. Saturday afternoon they'll be with Kara Eastman at Miller Park Pavilion in Omaha and a week from today... if you're in Wichita, it's James Thompson day at Farm and Art Market Plaza. There's also a week in Texas before meeting up with Ammar Campa-Najjar in Escondido on October 26 and traveling all over California 'til election day, rallies with Mike Levin, Harley Rouda, the 2 Katies (Porter and Hill) and then more in the Central Valley.

One of the early events was last Sunday afternoon at the Morgantown Farmers Market with progressive Democrat Kendra Fershee. "Vote Common Good," she told us, "is a perfect example of what America needs right now: an organization interested in rebuilding the bridges that have been crumbling for a long time. Instead of working toward solutions, we're tearing each other apart and forgetting who we are as Americans. We are straying from our core values: fairness, care, liberty, authority, sanctity, and loyalty. Vote Common Good has set out to remind us of why we love this country and why we need elected officials who are committed to doing what's right instead of what's politically expedient. There were people at the event who didn't expect to enjoy it as much as they did. It really was one of those 'feel good' events for me that give me the chance to reflect again on why I'm running for Congress and what my mission there will be: to serve the people of West Virginia."

Local newspapers have been covering the events in their own towns, but yesterday, one of the most influential evangelical newspapers in the country, the Christian Post ran a feature about the tour. The Post's executive editor is Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary, and president emeritus of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission.
A politically-liberal Christian organization will host get-out-the-vote "revivals" in nearly 30 towns across the nation this coming month in an effort to unseat Republican members of Congress this fall.

Led by Minnesota pastor Doug Pagitt and fueled by opposition to Trump administration policies, "Vote Common Good" rallies will be held in at least 10 states before the Nov. 6 midterm elections. The rallies will feature live worship music and a rotating cast of mostly left-leaning Christian leaders, authors and activists who will attest to why Christians should vote for the Democrats.

The stated goal of Vote Common Good, which is the brainchild of a meeting of anti-Trump evangelical leaders that took place in Colorado in May, is to "flip Congress for the common good."

"A lot of people we talk to are in a crisis of their faith because they really feel like their leaders and their overall Christian narrative has turned in such a way that things that they thought were commitments and unshakable values of human rights and family values and decency have just been sold out for a bowl of porridge," Pagitt told The Christian Post. "There is a real crisis."

The bus tour kicked off with a rally in Allentown, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday and a rally in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday. On Thursday, a rally was held in Richmond, Virginia.

"We don't just say we are running it like a revival. It really is a revival," Pagitt, the pastor of Solomon's Porch in South Minneapolis, said. "The theme of it is 'from fear to faith for the common good.' That is the branding around the particular event."

According to the organizers, the tour will hit at least 34 congressional districts, some of which are in states that have key Senate races, such as Missouri, Arizona and Texas.

Vote Common Good relied on the help of Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA), a regional vice chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, in deciding which areas of the country the tour should target.

The outfit is traveling in a three-vehicle caravan that includes a sleeper bus, an RV and a truck that pulls its mobile stage that allows it to set up tour events outside.

Most rallies will feature music from New York City church and bar musician Vince Anderson and soul singer Meah Pace. The organization also lists about 25 known Christian leaders who will speak at the events. The cast of speakers speaking at each event will vary depending on speakers' individual availability.

While some of the speakers might speak at most rallies, some will only speak at a handful.

Those expected to speak include author and activist Brian McLaren, author Frank Schaeffer, activist Shane Claiborne, Pastor John Pavlovitz, Pastor Rob Schenck and Rev. Jacqui Lewis, a minister at Middle Collegiate Church in New York City who advocates for LGBT and racial equality.

"We are not reflexively partisan or reflexively Democrats," Pagitt declared. "Our statement is that the Trump administration is a hazard to the wellbeing of a lot of people and to the planet and needs to be restrained. The common good calls us this election to respond with our vote."

Pagitt, who was arrested earlier this year for protesting illegal immigrant family separations at the White House, admits that the aim of the tour "feels very partisan." However, he explained that he can imagine a time when Congress is the hands of the Democrats and Vote Common God is calling for a flip in Congress yet again. Among other things, Vote Common Good objects to the Trump administration's policies on refugees, health care, immigration, and the 2017 tax overhaul and poverty.

Pagitt asserts that some of the areas the tour will stop in are districts that voted for a Republican in 2016 House elections.

"[W]e are saying to a lot of these voters who voted Republican in the past that maybe it is time to offer your vote on behalf of someone else and to not only think of your own self interest when you vote," Pagitt explained. "It is a little surprising that this comes as fresh news to Christian people who are often very selfless in other areas of their lives."

Considering that many conservative Republicans voted for President Donald Trump and Republicans in 2016 because of promises to advance pro-life policies, Pagitt refuted the notion that conservative Christians are voting for "someone else" when they support candidates with pro-life policy stances.

"Some people use that as an easy block because some of these people have been voting this way since 1972 and abortion is still legal in this country," he said. "So, it is not a very wise voting standard. If that is what you are doing, it is not really working. Making abortion illegal and reducing the number of abortions are not connected to one another."

"We have three decades of information now that tell us about what we can do to reduce the number of abortions in this country," he added. "You can be anti-abortion and not have to feel like you are compelled to vote for people who want to put kids in cages or limit the number of refugees or takeaway health care or who are hawkish on war. Those things don't have to go together and if they keep telling you they are, they are lying to you."

According to Pagitt, Vote Common Good is not looking to "change people's minds" through this tour.

"We are trying to encourage people whose minds have already changed that they need to stay true to their faith and vote along their changed mind," Pagitt said. "We call that changed-mind repentance. If they have already repented and changed their mind and perspective, their faith should follow. We are not here to have a debate about the issues."

Ultimately, Vote Common Good wants those who attend their rallies to understand how important the midterm elections are, even though most voters usually don't vote in them.

"I think more people are tuned in right now than in some other midterm election," Pagitt said. "I will be honest, I have missed a lot of midterm elections and haven't always voted in them. This one feels a little different and we want people to know that they are not alone."

On the right side of the political spectrum, conservative evangelical grassroots organizations like the Family Policy Alliance and the Faith & Freedom Coalition are spending millions on efforts to encourage social conservative voters to vote in the 2018 midterms.

The midterm elections will come as the Trump administration has advanced religious freedom and pro-life policies favored by conservative Christians at an unprecedented rate in his first two years in office.

"People need to remember that President Trump is not on the ballot this year but with those that are on the ballot, there is going to be a choice between a candidate who will advance life and religious freedom and family and there will be a candidate who doesn't," Autumn Leva, vice president of strategy at the Family Policy Institute, told CP last week. "If voters don't show up to support the pro-family candidate, then we are going to have a very big problem passing pro-family policies when it comes to the laws that are advanced at the state level and federal level next year."

Елизавета София Саксен-Альтенбургская (немецкое имя - Elisabeth Sophia von Sachsen-Altenburg)
принцесса Саксен-Альтенбургская из эрнестинской линии Веттинов, в замужестве герцогиня Саксен-Готская. Родилась в Галле. Елизавета София — единственный ребёнок в семье герцога Саксен-Альтенбурга Иоганна Филиппа и его супруги Елизаветы Брауншвейг-Вольфенбюттельской, дочери герцога Генриха Юлия Брауншвейг-Вольфенбюттельского. 24 октября 1636 года в Альтенбурге Елизавета София вышла замуж за Эрнста I Благочестивого, который в 1640 году получил титул герцога Саксен-Готского. Приданое Елизаветы Софии составило 20 тысяч гульденов, в обеспечение которого был заложен амт Росла. В качестве вдовьих владений для Елизаветы Софии были определены амты Капеллендорф и Берка, а также так называемый Садовый дом в Веймаре. Поскольку действовавшим в Саксен-Альтенбурге правом не предусматривалось наследование власти преемниками женского пола, после смерти отца Елизаветы Софии в 1639 году в Саксен-Альтенбурге правил его брат Фридрих Вильгельм II. Дядя Елизаветы Софии умер в 1669 году, и ему наследовал его малолетний сын Фридрих Вильгельм III, который также умер в возрасте 15 лет в 1672 году. Со смертью Фридриха Вильгельма III прервалась старшая линия дома Саксен-Альтенбурга по мужской линии, и Елизавета София стала главной наследницей владений. Её супруг Эрнст Благочестивый заявил о своих претензиях на наследство, имея на то два основания: во-первых, он сам как представитель эрнестинской линии Веттинов приходился родственником угасшему герцогскому дому, во-вторых, он представлял требования своей супруги. Саксен-Веймар также выступил претендентом на наследство, и Саксен-Альтенбург подвергся разделу, причём львиная часть наследства включая город-резиденцию Альтенбург перешла Саксен-Готе. Тем самым была основана новая эрнестинская линия Саксен-Гота и Альтенбург, просуществовавшая до 1825 года. Елизавета София пережила своего супруга на пять лет и получила вследствие изменения соглашения о вдовьих владениях от 1640 года амты Райнхардсбрунн и замок Теннеберг. Умерла в Готе 20 декабря 1680 года. У Елизаветы Софии родилось 18 детей: Иоганн Эрнст (1638); Елизавета Доротея (1640—1709), замужем за ландграфом Гессен-Дармштадта Людвигом VI (1630—1678); Иоганн Эрнст (1641—1657); Кристиан (1642); София (1643—1657); Иоганн (1645—1657); Фридрих I (1646—1691), герцог Саксен-Гота-Альтенбургский, женат на принцессе Магдалене Сибилле Саксен-Вейсенфельсской (1648—1681), затем на принцессе Кристине Баден-Дурлахской (1645—1705); Альбрехт (1648—1699), герцог Саксен-Кобургский, женат на принцессе Марии Елизавете Брауншвейг-Вольфенбюттельской (1638—1687), затем на Сюзанне Елизавете Кемпинской (1643—1717), «графине Швизицкой и Альтенгофской»; Бернгард I (1649—1706), герцог Саксен-Мейнингенский, женат на принцессе Марии Гедвиге Гессен-Дармштадтской (1647—1680), затем на принцессе Елизавете Элеоноре Брауншвейг-Вольфенбюттельской (1658—1729); Генрих (1650—1710), герцог Саксен-Рёмгильдский, женат на принцессе Марии Елизавете Гессен-Дармштадтской (1656—1715); Кристиан (1653—1707), герцог Саксен-Эйзенбергский, женат на принцессе Кристиане Саксен-Мерзебургской (1659—1679), затем на принцессе Софии Марии Гессен-Дармштадтской (1661—1712); Доротея Мария (1654—1682); Эрнст (1655—1715), герцог Саксен-Гильдбурггаузенский, женат на принцессе Софии Генриетте Вальдекской (1662—1702); Иоганн Филипп (1657); Иоганн Эрнст (1658—1729), герцог Саксен-Заальфельдский, женат на принцессе Софии Гедвиге Саксен-Мерзебургской (1660—1686), затем на графине Шарлотте Иоганне Вальдек-Вильдунгенской (1664—1699); Иоганна Елизавета (1660); Иоганн Филипп (1661—1662); София Елизавета (1663). Литература: August Beck: Ernst der Fromme, Herzog zu Sachsen-Gotha und Altenburg, H. Böhlau, 1865, S. 754 ff. (Digitalisat); Ludwig Storch: Das Fürstenhaus von Gotha, Erfurt 1826, S. 155 f.

1622
Иоганн Лингельбах (немецкое имя - Johannes Lingelbach)
художник живописец голландской и немецкой школ эпохи барокко. Родился во Франкфурте на Майне. В возрасте 15 лет И.Лингельбах вместе со своей семьёй переезжает в Амстердам; его отец — механик по профессии. Ученик, быть может, Ф.Воувермана, значительно уступавший ему в достоинстве. Писал привалы охотников, ярмарки, площади, пейзажи, животных и приморские гавани, преимущественно итальянские. Вообще, в его картинах много итальянского, так как он долго работал в Италии. Наиболее самостоятельны его гавани — род, в котором он служит предшественником Жозефу Верне. Он оживлял свои картины фигурами, компонуя из них полные движения сцены, характеризуя их национальность всей внешностью, позами и костюмом. Колорит у него приятный, хотя несколько синевато-фиолетовый; воздушная перспектива передана верно, но по возвращении его в Голландию, когда он стал писать по этюдам, вывезенным из Италии, и когда, вероятно, воспоминания его об итальянской природе ослабели, Лингельбаха впал в искусственный колорит, малоприятный и более удаленный от природы.

Портрет Иоганна Лингельбаха, 1717 (И.Лингельбах сверху).
В пейзажах Лингельбаха вообще довольствовался только внешней красотой природы. Вообще же он должен быть причислен в истории живописи к художникам второго разряда, хотя при жизни и пользовался известностью и был завален заказами. Настоящие пейзажисты нередко приглашали Лингельбаха писать фигуры в своих картинах, вероятно, для удовлетворения заказчиков. В пейзажах Мушерона, Вейнантса, Рюисдаля встречаются фигуры, писанные Л. и очень часто плохо согласованные с общим настроением ландшафта. Картины Лингельбаха имеются во многих галереях, но никогда не ценились очень высоко. Умер в Амстердаме в 1974 году. В эрмитажной галерее достоверных картин Лингельбаха пять: "Ливорнская гавань" (№ 1271), "Большая площадь в итальян. Городе" (№ 1272), "Приморская гавань в Италии" (№ 1273), "Итальянский импровизатор" (№ 1274), "Привал охотников" (№ 1276) — подражание Воуверману. Лингельбаха гравировал (крепкой водкой) пейзажи и морские порты. Галерея: Битва на Мильвском мосту (около 1650); Карнавал в Риме (1650-51); Разорение Рима в 1527 году; Фламандский город, осаждённый испанцами (около 1674); Ян Хакерт Пейзаж, Иоганн Лингельбах - фигуры на дороге; Морская битва при Ливорно 14 марта 1653 года (1660).

Erik_Dahlbergh-1849 (683x700, 219Kb)

Эрик Ёнссон Дальберг (шведское имя - Erik Jönsson Dahlbergh)
шведский инженер-фортификатор, военачальник (в звании фельдмаршала), генерал-губернатор Ливонии с 1696 по 1702 год. Оказал недружелюбный приём Великому посольству и, в частности, Петру I, остановившемуся в Риге в конце марта 1697 года, что впоследствии было использовано российской стороной как один из предлогов для начала Северной войны. Эрик Дальберг родился в столице Швеции, в крестьянской семье. Его предки принадлежали к крестьянскому сословию и никак не проявляли себя на военном поприще. Дальберг рано осиротел, но тем не менее получил среднее образование в чертёжной школе в Гамбурге (в неё он поступил в возрасте 13 лет), которое позволяло ему работать на секретарских должностях. Более того, в раннем возрасте Дальберг увлёкся искусством фортификации и ведения боя и увлечённо принялся за изучение инженерного ремесла. В 1641 году Дальберг устроился на работу писцом в канцелярию Гердта Реншёльда, который занимал пост главного казначея Мекленбурга — Передней Померании. Жена казначея находилась в родственных связях с Дальбергом, что в какой-то степени предопределило назначение и строгое отношение к нему, но только на первых порах. По прошествии некоторого времени Реншёльд проникся доверием к молодому секретарю и начал поручать ему исполнение важных заданий. На протяжении шести лет службы он обучался черчению, показал себя мастером в чертёжном искусстве, благодаря чему выдвинулся из числа своих коллег по казначейской канцелярии. В то же время, совершенствуясь в технике чертежа, Дальберг не оставлял таких важных инженерных дисциплин, как математика, архитектура, картография и аксонометрия. В 1646 году Дальберг, оставаясь при должности камер-писаря в Передней Померании, помогал Реншёльду отправлять на родину шведских солдат из Германии на съёмном торговом судне. Вернувшись после пересылки военных назад в Германию, он в 1647 году был произведён в кондукторы при Конраде Мардерфельте, который был генеральным инспектором померанских, мекленбургских, вестфальских и бременских крепостей. Благодаря этому он вскоре сделал большие успехи в изучении инженерного искусства. В 1650 году Дальберг был откомандирован во Франкфурт с целью уладить вопрос выплаты контрибуций по итогам Вестфальского мирного договора (всего швабская, рейнская и франконская области должны были уплатить 120 000 рейхсталеров шведской короне), который подвёл черту в общем благоприятной для Швеции Тридцатилетней войне. Операция по «выжиманию» военных издержек заняла три года. Одновременно Дальберг связался с известным франкфуртским семейным издательством, которым руководил Маттео Мериан (Старший) (из этой династии гравёров и издателей — известная путешественница Мария Сибилла Мериан, которой принадлежит честь первооткрывательницы мира насекомых Южной Америки; в 1699 году она посетила Суринам и подробно изучила «метаморфозы суринамских насекомых» (так называлась её книга, вышедшая в 1705 году)). С Маттео Мерианом Дальберг заключил обоюдовыгодный контракт, по которому он должен был снабжать издательство топографическими картами собственного производства. Сам Мериан основал серию хроник о современной Европе под названием «Theatrum Europaeum», а после его смерти в 1650 году его потомки продлили соглашение с Эриком Дальбергом. Сам Дальберг провёл во Франкфурте до 1653 года, а в 1655—56 гг. он отправился с целью повышения квалификации в Италию. В ходе своей карьеры военного инженера Дальберг был направлен на службу в Польшу в качестве генерал-квартирмейстер-лейтенанта и советника по инженерному делу при Карле X Густаве. Фактическое «вхождение» Эрика Дальберга в военную сферу произошло 17 июля 1656 года в разгар напряжённых сражений под Варшавой в рамках вторжения шведского короля в Польшу (так называемой Первой Северной войны). Также он принял участие в переговорах с князем Трансильвании Ракоци Дьёрдем II и строительством осадных укреплений на Западном Буге, в том числе при осаде Брест-Литовска. После этого он принял деятельное участие в осаде Копенгагена и Кронборга, руководя штабом инженеров-фортификаторов в ходе военных действий в Датско-шведской войне 1657—1658 гг. Известность ему принесло сооружение переправ через замёрзшие проливы Бельт Большой и Бельт Малый, которые помогли шведской армии получить стратегическое преимущество в войне. Несмотря на свои выдающиеся заслуги во благо шведской короны, Дальберг долгое время оставался в скромном чине подполковника. Однако вскоре после его успехов Карл X Густав делает Дальберга генерал-адъютантом. В то же время его можно считать истинным патриотом своей земли, поскольку он решительно отверг перспективное предложение английского монарха Карла II, пригласившего Дальберга на службу в Туманный Альбион. В 1669 году Дальберга назначают на пост коменданта Мальмё и ответственным за оборонительные сооружения в окрестностях, а также в Сконе и Халланде. Тем не менее, в 1676 году Дальберга наконец-то оценили по заслугам — его определяют на должность генерал-директора фортификации в королевском ведомстве. На этом посту он достиг главного успеха в своей жизни, в течение следующих 25 лет попеременно занимая руководящие посты в различных шведских крепостях: Гельсингфорсе, Нарве, Дюнамюнде и Риге. В 1687 году Дальберг становится губернатором Йёнчёпингского лена. Этот пост он занимает до 1693 года. За эти неполные семь лет Дальберг существенно поднимает архитектурный уровень этого старинного шведского города. В первую очередь следует отметить его проект, по которому была построена Йончепингская ратуша. Также Дальберг многое сделал для открытия первой в истории города типографии, а также занялся разработкой правил противопожарной безопасности, будучи обеспокоенным постоянной пожарной тревогой и отсутствием эффективных средств к устранению этого неприятного явления. Им же были спроектированы многие сооружения в окрестностях Йончепинга. И наконец, ещё одно неоспоримое достижение Дальберга: он стоит у истоков Хускварны как промышленного машиностроительного центра не только Йончепинга, но и всей Швеции. Вскоре следует новое назначение: на губернаторство двух городов — Бремена и Вердена, которые находились под властью Швеции по итогам Вестфальского мира. На этом посту Дальберг пробыл только год, после чего следует трёхлетний перерыв и генерал-губернаторство Ливонии в 1696 году. В Нарву Дальберг был направлен шведским королём Карлом XI в начале 1680-х годов. Монарх высказал недовольство уровнем укреплений в этой приграничной с Россией крепости. Сам Дальберг после инспекции крепостных укреплений подтвердил мнение короля, заявив, что бастионы Нарвы безнадёжно устарели. Под его руководством в 1683 году был разработан проект реорганизации Нарвы: опираясь на достижения французского мастера Вобана, Дальберг пошёл на сокращение куртин и расширение равелинов. Сам проект, который был основан на принципах новоголландской системы, предполагал строительство шести бастионов, которое было прервано неудачным нападением русских войск на Нарву в 1700 году, после чего шведы успели их достроить до следующего нападения в 1704 году, которое завершилось уже взятием крепости. В Дюнамюнде Дальберг также в 1680-е годы работал над строительством новой крепости, для чего был взят материал полуразрушенного старого замка, построенного ещё в орденские времена. Вокруг центральной части были отстроены массивные каменные укрепления, появилась разветвлённая система казематов и пороховых складов. При воздвижении Дюнамюнде Дальберг обратился к своему излюбленному приёму шести бастионов, которые получили астрономические названия Утренняя звезда, Южная Звезда, Кольвахен, Вечерняя звезда, Южное солнце, Северный полюс. Существует спорная легенда, по которой Эрик Дальберг вдохновился на названия бастионов в момент одной из морских поездок, когда он вместе с коллегами-фортификаторами откупорил бочонок с вином, и, глядя на звёздное небо над головой, придумал имена будущим бастионам. До своего генерал-губернаторства Дальберг приступил к реформированию системы рижских укреплений в 1695 году. Под его началом была спроектирована и построена Цитадель — с лёгкой руки Дальберга незатейливая деревянная постройка превратилась в самостоятельную крепость. Была сооружена система земляных валов, в прямые участки которых (куртины), были встроены казематы, снаружи облицованные камнем (принцип эскарпов). Также вокруг крепости проходил новый ров с четырьмя трёхгранными равелинами (Яковлевский, Сенной, Песочный, Карловский равелины). В том числе подверглась изменению прежняя итальянская рондельная система — устаревшим и ненадёжным ронделям на смену пришли пять пятигранных бастионов (Яковлевский, Песочный, Блинный (Пфанкухен; первоначально Новый), Банный, Шеров (раннее название Марстальский)). Ещё четыре бастиона были обращены в сторону Даугавы (Треугольный, Марстальский, Павловский, Шальский). Все эти элементы укрепления создавали защитный пояс города. Также в период его правления были открыты Карловские ворота (1685—1687 годы, до наших дней не сохранились; располагались в южной стороне города недалеко от современной рижской улицы Кунгу (Господской); были выполнены в дорическом ордере самим Эриком Дальбергом). Вторые Карловские ворота были проделаны с севера для облегчения попадания в город со стороны Цитадели. Королевские ворота вскоре утратили свою актуальность в связи с расширением защитной системы. Также под началом Дальберга было осуществлено строительство тогда ещё деревянных Яковлевских казарм для квартирования шведских легионеров. В 1698 году были созданы Львиные ворота (в наше время носят название Шведские ворота), вмурованные в стены жилого дома для оборудования проезда к Яковлевским казармам. В общем, Дальберга можно считать реформатором крепостной системы Риги. Также Дальберг ввёл лютеранские церкви крестообразного типа, образцы которых можно наблюдать в современной Латвии в населённых пунктах Вестиене, Апекалне, Лаудоне (все построены в 1696 году) и Лаздоне (1699 год). 31 марта 1697 года в Риге делает остановку известное Великое посольство, в составе которого были Франц Лефорт (административный распорядитель посольства), Фёдор Головин и Прокопий Возницин (ответственные исполнители) и другие лица, близкие к государственному аппарату, а также сам Пётр Первый, отправившийся, во-первых, в путешествие в Голландию для изучения корабельного мастерства на судоверфях, а во-вторых, для дипломатических переговоров с европейскими монархами для решения затянувшегося турецкого вопроса. Сам Пётр взял свой любимый псевдоним — Пётр Михайлов, урядник Преображенского полка. Рига была фактически первым городом «просвещённой Европы», где остановилась российская делегация. Послов после торжественной встречи в нескольких верстах от Риги (встречали официальные представители Дальберга) поселили в постоялом дворе Мермана, который не отличался удобством и находился на территории Ластадии (сейчас там расположен рижский Центральный рынок) в некотором отдалении от центра, в то время как других высокопоставленных гостей в Риге шведы обычно селили в постоялых дворах, которые располагались вблизи Ратушной площади. С первых же дней Пётр был раздосадован несколькими факторами — в первую очередь, отсутствием фейерверка и халатным обращением. Проще говоря, на них мало кто обращал внимание, фактически они были оставлены на произвол судьбы: сам Дальберг даже отказался их принять, прикрывшись затем своим «неведением» относительно личности Петра Первого. Затем началось непредвиденное — в первые дни апреля разбушевался ледоход, что вынудило посольство задержаться в Риге до 10 апреля. Это природное явление повлияло на ценовую политику рижских купцов, которые воспользовались безвыходным положением и взвинтили цены для послов на товары первой необходимости. По этому поводу российский царь отписал в Москву: «Мы были сыты только глазами». Более того, когда Пётр приступил к поверхностному изучению бастионов вдоль рижского рва, шведская крепостная стража пригрозила открыть огонь (по другой версии, даже сделала предупредительный выстрел над головой царя). В других источниках отмечается, что по Петру выстрелили в тот момент, когда он приложил к глазу подзорную трубу для безобидного ознакомления со шведским опытом фортификации. В любом случае известно, что Пётр не вытерпел такого обращения (инициатива исходила от Дальберга) и самостоятельно переправился через Западную Двину в самую кульминацию ледохода 8 апреля, предоставив Лефорту разбираться с долгами. Франц Лефорт уплатил затребованную сумму и отправился вместе с Великими послами вслед за государем. Эрик Дальберг отнёсся к визитёрам с большим недоверием и пустил вслед им пару-тройку разведчиков, наказав им проследить путь послов до следующего пункта остановки. Помимо этого Дальберг психологически мобилизовал рижский рат, велев ратманам отслеживать политические процессы в Москве и уделить большее внимание системе оборонительных сооружений. Ещё в июне 1697 года Дальберга продолжала беспокоить идея «неожиданного русского вторжения», и, памятуя о попытках Петра изучить рижский ров и бастионную систему, он издал рескрипт, в котором была озвучена без преувеличения мудрая мысль: совместно с представителями гильдий и бюргерского сословия снести гору Куббе, превышавшую самые высокие городские укрепления (с которой Рига была видна «как на ладони»). Этой горе несколько раз уже удалось сослужить городу дурную службу — ей пользовались шведы, чтобы атаковать город в период военных действий короля Густава II Адольфа, её использовали русские полки Алексея Михайловича при осаде и бомбардировке Риги летом-осенью 1656 года. После этого визита Пётр высказался о Риге в таком духе: «это проклятое и гиблое место», а затем в Курляндии в конфиденциальной беседе с герцогом Фридрихом Казимиром затронул вопрос о возможном формировании антишведского военного союза. Так или иначе, но 21 августа 1700 года на стол русского посланника в Швеции Хилкова легла роковая депеша, в которой ему было предписано незамедлительно объявить войну шведам. В этой депеше были подробно изложены причины начала военных действий против королевства: «… за многие их свейские неправды и нашим, царского величества подданным учинённые обиды, наипаче за самое главное бесчестье нашим, царского величества, великим и полномочным послам в Риге в прошлом 1697 г., которое касалось самой нашей царского величества персоны». Вопрос о рижском инциденте 1697 года был поднят царём ещё в ноябре 1699 года в разговоре со шведскими посланниками, однако тогда его заверили, что Карл XII подробно объяснит Дальбергу нерациональность его поведения: «… за то утеснение и за посольское бесчестье оборонь, чтоб впредь иным таким было неповадно». Таким образом, факт этого «посольского бесчестья» послужил «казусом белли» для второй Северной войны. В 1700 году, в самом начале Северной войны, Дальберг вынужден был «расхлёбывать последствия» своего давнишнего высокомерия, отражая атаку саксонцев, король которых, Август II Сильный, вступил в антишведскую коалицию, поддержав Петра Первого в борьбе за господство на Балтийском море. Однако в этот период судьба и военный талант благоволили Дальбергу, и две атаки были успешно отбиты — этот факт показал высокий уровень рижских укреплений. Первый этап саксонской агрессии начался 12 (22) февраля 1700 года, когда войско нападавших дислоцировалось в Задвинье, но рижские разведчики подняли тревогу, зазвонив в церковные колокола, чем не оправдали ставку Августа на внезапность нападения. Тем не менее, воспользовавшись относительной незащищённостью левобережья Западной Двины, саксонцы взяли шанцевые укрепления, в частности, стратегически значимый шанец Коброна, переименовав его в Ораниенбаум. Также ими был взят остров Люцау и ряд других мелких островов у правого берега реки. Вскоре, во второй половине марта, пала крепость Дюнамюнде, которую оборонял специальный финский легион (400 человек). Дальберг мобилизовал защитников города, также запросив дополнительного контингента у Карла XII, который в итоге блокировал осаждавших со стороны Лифляндии. К июню саксонцы также получили весомое подкрепление и возобновили блокаду Риги, но эта попытка также не увенчалась успехом, хотя и после заключения Константинопольского мира 1700 года Пётр направил к Риге помощь. Но саксонцы, получив отпор шведских диверсантов, периодически делавших опасные вылазки, 16 сентября отступили и сожгли свой лагерь в Дрейлини, бросив русский отряд Люцау фактически на произвол судьбы (оборона Люцау 1701 года). За саксонцами тогда на короткое время сохранились шанец Коброна и крепость Дюнамюнде. Вопреки острой антироссийской направленности Дальберга во внешнеполитической линии, следует отметить его неоспоримое дарование инженера-фортификатора. Его активная деятельность на посту главного фортификационного инженера Швеции предопределила его почётное прозвище «шведского Вобана». К тому же неоспоримой заслугой Дальберга является то, что он инициировал создание шведского инженерного корпуса. Супругой Дальберга была дочь начальника королевской таможни Вильгельма Дракенъельма, Мария Дракенъельм (1650—1680 годы). Дальберг благополучно вышел в отставку в чине фельдмаршала в 1702 году, но вскоре, 16 января 1703 года скончался в своём поместье в Тюринге. Помимо своих фортификационных достижений, Дальберг стяжал известность своей внушительной коллекцией гравюр, эстампов и чертежей, которая была названа Suecia Antiqua et Hodierna (Древняя и Новая Швеция). Многие из чертежей, вошедших в коллекцию, были сделаны самим Дальбергом. Это собрание было издано в 1660—1716 годы, оно оказало посильную помощь Самуэлю Пуфендорфу в создании труда «История Карла X Густава». Также им были написаны мемуары и своеобразный исторический экскурс «О военных кампаниях Карла X». Один из наиболее известных памятников Дальбергу находится в Йёнчёпинге, городе, для которого Дальберг сделал очень много. Недалеко от Йёнчёпинга находится небольшой населённый пункт Грэнна, возле него, в свою очередь, стоит холм Грэннабергет, на котором и установлен бюст Дальберга, выполненный шведским скульптором Юнасом Фрёдингом и торжественно открытый в 1952 году.

Авантитул трактата «Сатирический композитор» (издание 1696 г.) Слева изображён мифологический музыкант Фринид Митиленский, справа (в восточной одежде) Евклид
Яркий биографический очерк о Принце написал И.Маттезон. В музыкальной науке и особенно в музыкальной поэтике испытал большое влияние Афанасия Кирхера, на которого неоднократно ссылался. Наиболее значительный и объёмный труд Принца — «Фринид Митиленский, или Сатирический композитор», был опубликован тремя отдельными томами в Кведлинбурге в 1676-1679 гг., а в 1696 году переиздан в Дрездене и Лейпциге. Книга Принца «Историческое описание благородного искусства вокальной и инструментальной музыки», напечатанная в Дрездене в 1690 г., считается «первой большой историей музыки в Германии». В трактате «Музыкальный компендий» (1668, на латинском языке) выдвинул идею различных по тяжести, «внутренне ощущаемых» (никак не нотируемых) ритмических акцентов (лат. quantitas intrinseca), которые позднейшими теоретиками были осознаны как базовая особенность тактовой метрики. Принц утверждал, что является автором «150 полномасштабных концертов и 48 канцонетт», однако, никаких следов его композиторской активности не сохранилось.

Никола де Ларжильер (французское имя - Nicolas de Largillière)
французский живописец. Родился в Париже. Отец Никола де Ларжильера, торговец, взял трёхлетнего сына в Антверпен; позднее Никола около двух лет прожил в Лондоне. Отец желал, чтобы мальчик пошёл по торговой части, но тот проявил склонность к рисованию и по возвращении в Антверпен с 1668 г. начал учёбу в мастерской Антони Губо. В 1672 г. принят в антверпенскую гильдию святого Луки. В восемнадцатилетнем возрасте вновь отправился в Англию, свёл знакомство с Питером Лели, под руководством которого в 1675–1679 гг. производил (вместе с Антонио Веррио) реставрацию картин в Виндзорском замке и создавал собственные произведения исторического содержания, а также писал натюрморты и портреты; испытал влияние Рубенса и ван Дейка. Мастерство живописца привлекло внимания Карла II, который хотел оставить его у себя на службе; но раскрытие Райхаузского заговора в 1683 г. поставило под угрозу безопасность его как католика, и Ларжильер вынужден был покинуть страну. С 1682 г. Ларжильер работал в Париже, где посвятил себя в первую очередь портретной живописи. В Париже его высоко оценивали Лебрён и Адам Франц ван дер Мёлен. Блестящее владение цветом и живость мазка привлекали в его студию многих тогдашних знаменитостей: актрис, общественных деятелей, известных проповедников. Среди самых известных моделей живописца были Пьер Даниэль Юэ, епископ Авраншский, кардинал де Ноайе, семейство Дюкло и президент Ламбер с семьёй. Иаков II, воцарившийся в Англии в 1685 г., вызвал художника к себе и предложил пост хранителя королевских коллекций, но художник предложения не принял, всё ещё находясь под впечателением событий двухлетней давности. За время пребывания в Лондоне он написал портрет Карла II и начал портрет королевы. Вернувшись в начале 1686 г. в Париж, стал почётным членом Французской академии. В качестве вступительного произведения он представил портрет Лебрёна – одну из вершин своего творчества. Портретируемый представлен за работой, в окружении классических бюстов и статуэток. В 1690 г. Ларжильер внесён в списки членов Академии как исторический живописец. Высшим достижением его в этой области являются многофигурные композиции, созданные для парижской церкви Сен Этьен дю Мон в 1694 г. Ещё одно историко-библейское полотно, появившееся позже, в 1720 г. («Въезд Христа в Иерусалим»), свидетельствует, помимо всего прочего, о незаурядном даровании пейзажиста. В портретных произведениях Ларжильера, как и у других его коллег того времени, пейзаж также играл важную роль и использовался как задний план для фигур. Пейзажные фоны и переливчатый пастельный колорит у Ларжильера предвосхищают искусство рококо. Портреты – лучшая часть наследия художника. В них он с течением времени добивался всё большей свободы и естественности в живописи, в изображении поз, нарядов. От фламандской школы в искусстве Ларжильера присутствуют такие черты, как тёплые тона, широкие густые мазки, волнистые линии, придающие картинам динамизм. Одним из самых реалистичных полотен художника и одним из шедевров французской портретной живописи является «Мужчина в лиловом одеянии» (1700). Стилистически эта работа близка появившемуся через два года портрету скульптора Шарля Буше. Некоторые черты техники масляной живописи роднят эти произведения с творчеством Веласкеса. Три разных жанра, в которых преуспел художник, воплотились в 1709 г. в картине «Людовик XIV с семьёй», персонажами которой стали сам Людовик, его супруга, малолетний принц – будущий Людовик XV – и герцог дю Бирон. Помимо основного, портретного жанра произведения, на полотне позади принца присутствует пейзаж, а рядом с королевой – натюрморт. Годом позже создан автопортрет мастера – единственный, где он изображает себя на открытом воздухе, в обществе жены и дочери, а не за работой у мольберта в полумраке студии, как в других случаях (в том числе в последнем, созданном в 1725 г. автопортрете; в нём противопоставление света и темноты напоминает о караваджевском «кьяроскуро»).В 1714 г. появилась одна из самых необычных работ художника – «Этюд различных типов кистей рук», из которого видно, насколько широко автор владел приёмами живописи маслом: густыми слоями он пишет сами руки, тонкими изображает ткань (Ларжильер славился мастерством в передаче текстуры). Ближе к концу жизни Ларжильер всё больше пишет мужские портреты лиц, принадлежащих к парижской буржуазии, чьи имена, как правило, не установлены (в этой сфере его основным соперником был Иасент Риго, который, однако, предпочитал писать аристократов). Интимные портреты кисти Ларжильера отмечены топкостью индивидуальных характеристик. Он вообще предпочитал частные заказы официальным: это было связано с меньшей ответственностью и более быстрой оплатой. Художник также создавал групповые портреты, призванные увековечить какое-либо торжественное событие («Заседание парижской ратуши в 1687», эскиз к утраченной картине). Успех сопутствовал и карьерному росту. В 1722 г. художник стал директором, а в 1743 г., за три года до смерти, – канцлером Академии. Умер в Париже 20 марта 1746 года. После смерти Ларжильера стали известны широкой публике некоторые его пейзажи и натюрморты; лучшая из этих работ – «Лесной пейзаж». Самым выдающимся учеником мастера был Жан Батист Удри. Другие ученики – Жак Франсуа Дельен и шведский живописец Густав Лундберг. Литература: Smith J. (van RensseIaer), Nicolas Largilliere. A painter of the Regence, Minneapolis, 1964.

Рафаил (в миру - Романт Краснопольский)
епископ Русской православной церкви, архиепископ Холмогорский и Важеский. Первый архимандрит Заиконоспасского монастыря и ректор Заиконоспасской академии. Окончил Киевскую духовную академию. «Лексикон треязычный» Поликарпова отводил Рафаилу первое место после Стефана Яворского «в знании богословия и свободных учений и во изрядстве латинского диалекта». С 1703 года — архимандрит, настоятель Московского Заиконоспасского монастыря и ректор Заиконоспасской духовной академии. В начале 1704 года назначен архимандритом Московского Симонова монастыря. 21 марта 1708 года хиротонисан во епископа Холмогорского и Важеского с возведением в сан архиепископа. В сане архиепископа Рафаил не без успеха вёл публичные «состязания» со старообрядцами. Скончался 4 ноября 1711 года. Погребен в Холмогорском соборе. Сочинения: Памятником борьбы его со старообрядцами является сочинение «Изъявление о двуперстном и триперстном знамении честнаго креста», оставшееся ненапечатанным. Кроме того, после Рафаила остались «Поучение всему народу, 9 января 1711 г.» и «О погребении в пустых местах, без молитв священника, не исповедавшихся и не причащавшихся священных тайн» (1709).

The race is on. 

Amazon Alexa has just informed me that there are 83 days to December 31st. I have 720 Tier Points on Virgin Atlantic; I need 1,000 if I am to maintain my Gold status and keep the benefits of no change fees, extra Air Miles, and numerous other benefits I will never need, much less use.
   
I’m stressed. Last year, I went to Boston on Delta Airlines for dinner to garner the extra 80 points I needed. Delta is now a partner of Virgin, so it pays to travel internally to clock up the points (internal travel in the US is relatively cheap) and then use them to on a transcontinental flight.
   
Feel free to stop reading now. Air Miles are my obsession and, specifically on Virgin Atlantic, Tier Points.
   
So, I’ve been to Vancouver (160 Tier Points) and Toronto (140 Tier Points) recently, just to boost my chances of staying Gold (and I really hate Canada – that’ll give you an indication of my desperation). Now, let me explain the discrepancy: I know you’re all on the edge of your seats about this.
   
There are different categories on Delta. Class ‘A’ gets me 20 points, class ‘P’ gets me 40. But is it worth paying the extra for ‘P’?
   
I also break my journey because that then classes as two flights. So, for example, breaking my journey to and from Vancouver was 40 x 4, whereas one of my Toronto journeys (also with a break) was an ‘A’ (keep up, people!) and three ‘P’.

If you book early enough, you can get 160 Tier Points for under $1000, whereas trying to clock them up on Virgin Atlantic will cost you over £3k to get 200.
   
Yes, those calculations are based on First/Upper – not because I can afford it but because I am very savvy with collecting Air Miles (I also need to have a bed on a long flight because of my ongoing rib and back problems, by the way). I have friends who travel in Economy who pay more than I do. I buy miles in the sale, and, until MBNA scrapped the Virgin Miles programme, I put everything on my credit card. Alas, that scheme has ended and I am now almost destitute of miles. 

I know. Third World problems, right?
   
I’m heading back to the UK for my 60th birthday celebrations, but Christmas will have to be in the US. Virgin’s stupid new scheme re-sets my Tier points to zero on December 31st, and the Heathrow taxes (irrespective of what class you fly) are ludicrously expensive compared to internal airports).
   
Now my dilemma is how I get up to 1,000 Tier Points in 83 days. I have two flights booked to and from LA (out of New York) that will take me to 880 (‘P’ category, breaking journey at Minneapolis on the way out and Atlanta on the way back – still with me?); but I’m still left with a shortfall. Boston is by far the cheapest and closest, but even in ‘P’, that will get me only 80 as there are no breaks on the short flight.
   
This is now occupying my every waking hour. Las Vegas is always a good option because, out of LA, it’s cheap as chips on Delta, and only a 45 minute flight; in fact, I could do it three times in one day and still be home for dinner.
   
The Christmas sale of Air Miles will soon be upon us and I will hungrily purchase everything I can in order to fly to and from the UK relatively cheaply. But it’s these damn Tier Points that keep proving the problem. What I really need is Lifetime Gold Membership, but I need to fly another 823,199 miles to get that, or to have another seven years as a Gold Card member. 

Gosh, my life is complicated.
   
The fabulous team in Swansea who chat to me nearly every day of life are like my closest friends; in fact, I speak to them more often than I do members of my own family. I’m thinking of inviting them all to New York for Christmas dinner.
   
Yesterday, I got Rob, who remembered having spoken to me before. He told me that when I come through on another line, he tells them that I’m lovely. I am. I specially like chatting to them after midnight Eastern Time, when they have more time to listen to me pontificate on my latest scheme for banking miles.
   
I also have to say that the Virgin Atlantic crews are the best of any airline I have ever flown with. They really cannot do enough for you, and if the plane went down, I’d be dying very happy (nevertheless, praying it doesn’t).
   
It’s only the website and Customer Service that let Virgin down and, since they installed their new system nearly years ago, I’ve seriously considered switching to another airline/rewards programme.
   
But I’m hooked now. Tier Points are my drug of choice, and I would have to spend at least three months in Air Miles Rehab to wean me off the scheme. My only hope is that Sir Richard Branson might read this and, for the sake of my health, give me a Lifetime Gold Membership as a result of the acres of free publicity I continue to give him and his airline.
   
What a lovely 60th birthday present that would be for me, Sir.

          [Eugene Volokh] Sugar Babies, Sexual Assault Claims, Takedown Demands, and Microaggressions      Cache   Translate Page      

All together, in a Minnesota Court of Appeals decision handed down today.

From Kiani v. Huha:

Self-described "sugar baby" Shawdy Kiani initiated a four-month sexual relationship with "sugar daddy" John Huha, exchanging "companionship" for lavishments. Kiani spurned Huha's attempt to elevate the arrangement into a real romance, and the relationship ended.

When Huha refused to remove from his social-media page photographs of Kiani and Huha as a couple and an image of Kiani's text message describing herself as his "prostitute," Kiani moved for a harassment restraining order claiming that she had been too intoxicated to consent and was therefore sexually assaulted during their first sexual rendezvous. The district court rejected Kiani's sexual-assault claim as incredible and only partially granted her motion.

Kiani argues that the district court was biased and erroneously found her incredible, erroneously admitted evidence, erroneously defined "sexual assault," and erroneously decided that Huha's social-media postingwas not harassment. Because the district court was not biased and did not clearly err by rejecting Kiani's sex-assault claim as a lie, because no erroneously admitted evidence prejudiced Kiani's motion, because the definition of sexual assault was immaterial, and because the district court reasonably concluded that the posting was not harassment, we affirm.

Here's the court's summary of the facts, the factual dispute, and the proceedings in the trial court:

In early 2017, twenty-year-old Shawdy Kiani visited the "Seeking Arrangements" online service, where, according to Kiani, "You can find a 'sugar daddy.' " The website promises a young woman (a "sugar baby") the opportunity to meet an older man (a "sugar daddy") for "companionship." The district court described the resulting arrangement candidly: "This 'sugar baby – sugar daddy' relationship is replete with euphemisms. In fact, realistically it is an exchange of primarily sexual services by the woman in return for large financial payments from the man."

Kiani met John Huha, a man in his mid-thirties, through the website. The two began a sexual relationship that lasted roughly four months (but the precise length is unclear). An episode during their first sexual liaison is a central event in this appeal.

Kiani and Huha communicated online and by text messaging for several weeks before their first liaison. They arranged to meet for a weekend in Pittsburgh, where Huha lived, specifically to engage in sexual intercourse. Kiani flew to Pittsburgh on a Friday afternoon. She met Huha in person for the first time. The two engaged in sexual intercourse at least once that Friday and several times the next morning and afternoon before they went out to dinner. Kiani drank alcoholic beverages steadily over dinner, and, according to her, she became quite drunk.

Kiani claims to remember only returning to their hotel room that Saturday evening before vomiting and passing out. She says that the next thing she remembers is waking up Sunday morning in bed with Huha. She asked him if they had had sex after dinner, and Huha said they had. They ate brunch together. Later that day Kiani boarded her scheduled flight and returned to Minnesota.

The sugar baby – sugar daddy relationship continued for months. Within two weeks of the Pittsburgh encounter, Huha flew to Minneapolis to meet with Kiani. Then they met in Miami, and then in Minneapolis, and finally Ohio. The district court found that, during this period, Kiani perceived that Huha "wanted their relationship to become more romantic" while Kiani "wanted to keep their relationship as it started—money from him in return for companionship and sex from her."

The disagreement came to a head during their Florida encounter, after which Kiani says she first tried to end the relationship. But she apparently had second thoughts, because the arrangement continued. Kiani wanted to impose some restrictions, however, so she told Huha expressly, "[I]f you want to see me like it has to be a real sugar baby/sugar daddy relationship, and so I said we can meet two weekends a month and then you would like help me out financially." She then met with Huha again in Minnesota and Ohio. Huha funded all of their escapades, each involving sex.

Sometime after the Ohio trip, Huha posted photographs of himself and Kiani together on social media. The photographs are not sexually graphic; they are headshots of the two together, smiling, like a typical couple.

But at some point the arrangement ended, and Kiani took issue with Huha's characterization of it as typically romantic. Kiani sent Huha a text message complaining about the posted photos, adding, "I am not [your] ex." When Huha responded asking Kiani what, then, she had been to him, Kiani replied, "Your prostitute." Huha captured the image of this text-message exchange and added it to the photos on his Instagram profile.

Kiani demanded that Huha remove the post. He refused. During an angry text-message exchange over several days, Huha complained that he had given Kiani $30,000 during their relationship, which the district court found to have been entirely "based upon consensual sex for financial reward."

Kiani's attorney sent Huha a letter demanding that he cease all contact with Kiani and remove all social-media posts depicting her. Huha again refused. Kiani petitioned for an ex-parte harassment restraining order, asserting for the first time that Huha had sexually assaulted her during their initial encounter in Pittsburgh. She asked the district court to order Huha to remove the photographs. Relying only on Kiani's allegations, the district court issued a restraining order pending an evidentiary hearing.

Only Kiani testified at the hearing. She testified to the account just described and claimed that the Saturday-evening sexual encounter during the initial liaison constituted sexual assault. Over the objection of Kiani's attorney, Huha's attorney offered into evidence the demand letter in which Kiani complained about the social-media photographs but said nothing of any alleged assault.

The district court found that Kiani was generally not credible, that her assault allegation was particularly incredible, that no sexual assault occurred, and that Huha's posting of the photographs on Facebook did not constitute "harassment" under Minnesota Statutes, section 609.748 (2017).

But the district court did find that the lengthy text-message exchange between the parties about the Instagram posting was "hostile in tone and somewhat threatening." It observed that neither party "expresses any desire to communicate with the other by any means" and that they live far apart in different states. It concluded that a "minor degree of harassment" in the text messages justified extending the restraining order two months, with no requirement to remove any internet post.

Kiani appealed; one of her arguments was that the district court erred in finding her incredible; the court of appeals disagreed:

We review a district court's credibility determination for clear error. In doing so, we accord the district court great deference. As the supreme court has long established, "the trial court is in a far better position than we are to evaluate the various factors bearing on the credibility of the witnesses, such as their demeanor, disposition, and character." ...

In exceptional fashion, the district court thoroughly and reasonably explained its credibility determination based both on logic and witness demeanor. The district court observed, for example, that "[t]here was no corroboration at all" to support Kiani's claim of being sexually assaulted during the parties' first rendezvous. It considered that Kiani only recently came to claim that the after-dinner sexual contact was an assault. It highlighted that she had never reported an assault to any authority. It recognized that she had never behaved as if the episode was an assault.

The court said that it had observed Kiani's "demeanor and attitude carefully and listened to her testimony diligently, through both direct and cross examinations." Based on this, it found that "[h]er credibility was quite poor. Her testimony was vague, approaching flippant at times, and contained numerous evasions and omissions. She did not display great concern for factual truth overall. Significant events and actions were often bypassed or glossed over .... [Kiani] simply was not a credible witness."

It reasoned that the only way to believe Kiani's claim that she was intoxicated and helpless would be to take her at her word, but it found that "[she] had little credibility overall, and less as to this claim." It concluded frankly, "Her testimony on the point was not believable." This vivid description by Referee Richard Trachy explaining why he was rejecting Kiani's allegation is a model of thoughtful scrutiny, and the district court's factually supported decision to disbelieve Kiani is therefore certainly not clearly erroneous.

Kiani would have us hold otherwise based on three theories: Kiani's testimony was not challenged by any other testimony; the district court referee was biased against Kiani; and the credibility determination is logically inconsistent with the district court's two-month restraining-order extension. None of these theories is convincing.

We reject Kiani's contention that the district court clearly erred by finding her incredible on the theory that, as the sole witness, Kiani must be believed. A district court sitting as fact-finder "is the sole judge of the credibility of witnesses and may accept all or only part of any witness'[s] testimony." The fact-finder "is not compelled to believe any witness merely because [her] testimony is uncontradicted." ...

The court also rejected Kiani's claim that the district court manifested bias against her, as shown by its supposed "microaggressions":

Kiani maintains that the referee's bias was manifested in the referee's words because he interrupted her testimony and stated, "I'm sorry, I'm having a little trouble understanding you. If you could try ... to speak either a little louder or a little slower. ... There is a slight accent. Try again."

Kiani labels these comments "microaggressions," which, she proclaims, "have no place in our justice system." Kiani does not define the term "microaggression." The term does not appear in any Minnesota statute or rule of court, any published or unpublished Minnesota appellate decision, or any federal appellate decision, so it carries no established meaning in law.

According to Scott O. Lilienfeld, Microaggressions: Strong Claims, Inadequate Evidence, 12 Perspectives on Psychological Science, 138, 141 (2017), "[t]he term microaggression was coined by Harvard University psychiatrist Chester Pierce in 1970 to describe seemingly minor but damaging put-downs and indignities" based on ethnicity. Lilienfeld explains that a "microaggression" is, by definition, one of several "indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults."

The term "began to filter into the academic mainstream" in 2007. At that time, Professor Derald Wing Sue had similarly described the "nature of microaggressions" as "often unintentional and unconscious." Derald Wing Sue, et al., Racial Microaggressions in Everyday Life: Implications for Clinical Practice, American Psychologist, 271, 280 (May–June 2007).

A judge who calls attention to his difficulty comprehending a litigant's testimony because of the dialect, speed, or volume of the litigant's speech has not expressed a hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slight or insult against the litigant unless the judge intends the remarks to constitute a racial slight or insult. Merely labeling the request with the nebulous term "microaggression," which can involve purely unintentional communication, adds nothing to Kiani's unsupported accusation of bias. And nothing in the record hints that the referee's comments veiled some sort of ethnic or other partiality against Kiani. We hold that the referee's comments fall far short of manifesting bias....

And, finally, the court of appeals rejected Kiani's argument that "Huha's posting of the photographs on social media constituted harassment":

Harassment includes "repeated incidents of intrusive or unwanted acts, words, or gestures that have a substantial adverse effect or are intended to have a substantial adverse effect on the safety, security, or privacy of another." "[W]hether certain conduct constitutes harassment may be judged from both an objective standard, when assessing the effect the conduct has on the typical victim, and a subjective standard, to the extent the court may determine the harasser's intent." We review the district court's determination that the photographs did not constitute harassment for an abuse of discretion.

Kiani cites no published opinion to support her proposition that Huha's posting of the apparently inoffensive headshots of Kiani and Huha posing together constitutes harassment. She argues vaguely that the posting of the photographs, "in conjunction with other contacts," constitutes harassment. But the district court remedied the mildly harassing "other contacts" by restraining Huha from contacting Kiani for two months.

Kiani argues that the photographs separately constitute harassment because they "were damaging to [her] relationships with her family and substantially interfered with her privacy." She does not explain how the photographs damaged her relationship with anyone or otherwise interfered with her privacy. The photographs imply only that she and Huha were once a couple. And although the image of Kiani's text message describing herself as Huha's "prostitute" may be embarrassing, she fails to establish that the harassment statute, in the context of the First Amendment, authorizes the district court to prevent damaging or embarrassing self descriptions from being publicly disclosed.

Kiani does not convince us to overturn the district court's finding that "[n]othing about [the photos' placement on Huha's Instagram profile] created a substantial adverse effect upon [Kiani's] safety, security or privacy." ...

 Rand Paul on political climate: 'I really worry th...

Unless you believe the polls from CNN, NBC, and New York Times, there is no blue wave coming in November. At the very worst I see things staying pretty much as they are. A lot can happen in the next four weeks. But if things continue as they are now, Democrats will lose seats. Democrats stand to lose 0-5 Senate seats, and perhaps 6 to over 15 seats in the House.

If we stay on the current path, Democrats are not going to like the November outcome. A lot can happen both bad or good. There is a good possibility Republicans will beat historical trends of off year elections. This is possible for many reasons. The latest is the “Kavanaugh Catastrophe.” The left are completely out of touch with America today. They have silenced Free Speech to the point they only hear one side. They do not even know there is another. Democrats and the Media tried the old standard play, smear and move on.

They forgot fifty years of Media bias and lies has damaged their credibility. Other than a tiny segment, the public do not believe them. Too many remember the Media attacks on accused sexual assaults. Only to discover they had ZERO credibility. False accusations that destroyed good people. Then the Media ignored the damage they themselves had done. People do not believe the accusation, they want some proof. This Ford accusation had more holes than a slice of Swiss Cheese. And the Media ignored the lies and misstatements by Ford and the others.

Depending on the polls you look at the “Kavanaugh Catastrophe,” did serious damage to the Media and more important to Democrats. The ones I have looked at show a loss of Independent Voters support for Democrats. They lost between 11% to 30% of support from Independent voters just because of the way democrats treated Kavanaugh. It even hurt them with Democrats. Again depending on the poll, Democrats lost between 4% and 15% of Democrat voters.

The never-ending negativity from Democrats and the Media are another factor. Working Americans, Independents and even Democrats see the improvements. There are more jobs. Their wages going up. Millions got bonuses from the Trump Tax Bill. But the Media and Democrats cannot force themselves to say anything unless it is negative. One of the overriding truisms, positive plays better. We have President Trump and Republicans talking about making things even better. The only thing from the Media and Democrats is how horrible it is. But the people out there working, know it is better and the lies just turn them off.

We are now over two years into nonstop Media stories, “President Trump and the Russians.” Two years of digging. Lots of breaking news innuendo and allegations but NO PROOF. They lost sight of Alinsky’s Rules. Rule Number 7; “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” And the whole Russian collusion story is now a drag. And yet they cannot shut-up about it. People, even Democrats are bored, and want to know, “Where’s the beef?”

Back to where I started, Rand Paul warning of Assassination. I think it is too late to turn back the violence. Going back to the attack at the baseball game 18 months ago, how many Republicans have been physically attacked. Rep. Steve Scalise was shot. Rand Paul was attacked. Candidate Rudy Peters, in California defended himself against a knife attack. All of these attacks were cheered and celebrated by Democrats and supporters. Not counting the verbal assaults. Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens, were eating breakfast in Philadelphia, when attacked by Democrat supporters. Ted Cruz and wife were chased from D.C. restaurant, by Democrats. Tomi Lahren attacked at Minneapolis restaurant, by Democrats. Secretary of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen, chased from restaurant, by Democrats. Sarah Sanders chased from Red Hen restaurant by Owner. Again all of these attacks were cheered and celebrated by Democrats and supporters

If what I believe is a real possibility, Democrats actually lose seats. The left will come unglued. If Republicans increase their influence I look for the left shift quickly to violence. I expect, we will see shooting and assassinations before the end of the year. We now see verbal attacks. If they lose the election there will be shootings of Republicans in restaurants before Thanksgiving. All Republicans in Congress and working in the White House will need security just to walk outside, shop, or eat in a diner.

27 days left until the midterm elections

Today’s comic by Jen Sorensen is Supreme Court silver lining:

Cartoon by Jen Sorensen

Most leading U.S. newspapers failed to mention landmark U.N. climate change report. Media Matters scrutinized the top 50 U.S. newspapers between 9 AM and noon ET on Monday and found most did not mention on their website homepages the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Sunday release of its report on the  devastating impacts of a global temperature increase of 1.5-degree Celsius (2.7-degree Fahrenheit) above the temperature of the pre-industrial era. Although The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the Minneapolis Star Tribune gave the report prominence, 28 of the 50 newspapers didn’t mention it at all on their homepages, and most of those that did only provided headlines:

Of [those 28] newspapers, 10 serve cities that are listed among the "25 U.S. Cities Most Affected by Climate Change" in a 2015 weather.com report: Baltimore, Buffalo, Columbus, Denver, Louisville, Newark, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Portland, and St. Paul. [...]

The Miami Herald also did not mention the IPCC report on its homepage, though it did link to an article about how the risk of sea-level rise threatens real estate prices. Miami will be particularly affected by sea-level rise; a study published last year in the journal Nature concluded that rising seas as a result of climate change could cause more than 2.5 million Miami residents to flee the city.

Hurricane Michael headed for Florida as North Carolina prepares for heavy rains: The National Hurricane Center says Michael will come ashore as a Category 3 storm with winds of 120 mph around the Florida Panhandle Wednesday. The storm surge in low-lying areas of the state could reach 12 feet. Florida Governor Rick Scott issued a state of emergency order for 26 counties and activated 500 members of the Florida national guard in preparation for the hurricane’s landfall. Michael is expected to track through Georgia and Carolinas. In North Carolina, still nowhere near being fully recovered from last month’s Hurricane Florence, officials are preparing for rains and gusty winds that could uproot trees and take out power lines.

“South Park” episode featuring Mr. Hankey mocks Kavanaugh’s testimony.

Nuns on a Bus launch tour challenging Republican tax law: After a send-off in Santa Monica, California, by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Monday morning, the nuns began a 44-city, 21-state tour that will ultimately take them to Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump’s lavish Florida compound: 

The aim is to highlight economic inequality from the GOP’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which critics say benefits the highest-income households while ignoring middle and lower-income Americans.

In an interview, the group’s lead organization Sister Simone Campbell said, “We’re not against people benefitting. We’re all for everyone benefiting. But that’s everyone – not just a few.” [...]

“Right now, people are so hopeless, so angry, so separated, without vision. We’re presenting an alternative vision,” Campbell said.

          Declaring His Stupidity      Cache   Translate Page      
The best way to get rid of the gun control foolishness is to stop electing anti-gun fools. It’s easy to do, usually, because the fools who want to take away our constitutional right to self defense, and to own and use the means to that end, a gun, really think the whole country is behind them. So they willingly ANNOUNCE it. Very few anti-gun fools HIDE their intentions. In Minneapolis, a mayoral candidate wants to disarm the COPS! The people who have to go up against the holders of ILLEGAL guns, daily. The people who will die first if that ever happens. If it ever happens, all the cops should resign.In England, the cops have (mostly) been disarmed for a long time, but they are rethinking that, as many unarmed cops get killed, all the time. In France, a couple of terrorists shot up a newspaper office and killed 11 people with ILLEGAL gunswhile unarmed cops cowered behind their cars and could do nothing. The whole idea of disarming the cops is a STUPID IDEA, and the guy who proposes it should be soundly defeated at the polls—and he will be, because his stupidity is on display. Many anti-gun politicians keep their wishes “on the down-low,” so they can get elected, and then work to get rid of that right. Never mind, everything they do gets more people killed.

          Kevin Odegard's Artifacts Seasoned with Blood On The Tracks, Sweat and Tears      Cache   Translate Page      
This past month I acquired a copy of Kevin Odegard's most recent CD release titled Artifacts.with the intention of simply writing a review. After a couple listens I wanted to learn more. I was especially moved, spellbound, by the third track titled Dear Friend. I was fairly certain the song was inspired as a result of the loss of two very dear musician friends these past two years, both of whom I'd come to know through the Northland's Dylan Fest celebrations these past many years. If you do not want to spring for the whole CD, I would nearly insist that you go to the Amazon link at the end of this post and download that particular track. I am certain that if you remember the Summer of Love, you will have also experienced the loss of at least a few of your own dear friends. This track will connect to something you may have been unable to express.

Anyways, I learned Kevin was sailing in the Aegean Sea this week, but amenable to answering a few questions while out on the big water there.

For those unfamiliar with the story, Odegard was one of several musicians assembled in Minneapolis by Bob Dylan's brother David Zimmerman approximately three months after the initial recording sessions for Blood On The Tracks in New York. Dylan evidently had mixed feelings about some of the tracks that had been recorded and, as he had with Blonde On Blonde, decided it would be worth the effort to go somewhere and try to capture the sound he wanted.

So it was that Kevin Odegard was invited to play guitar on Bob Dylan’s 1974 album on Columbia Records with his guitar opening the now-oh-so-familiar bars intro to “Tangled Up In Blue.” After touring the Midwest with his KO Band Odegard moved to Los Angeles, where he became executive director of the National Academy of Songwriters (NAS), protecting the rights and earnings of songwriters. He co-created and co-produced “A Salute To The American Songwriter” for VH-1 and Showtime networks. In 2004 Kevin co-authored with Andy Gill A Simple Twist Of Fate: Bob Dylan and the Making of Blood On The Tracks. (DaCapo Press/Perseus Books).

As it turns out, Blood On The Tracks became the best-selling album of Dylan's career, emerging from a deep internal place while his marriage of many years was unravelling. 100,000 album covers had already been printed by the time the Minneapolis sessions were a wrap so that none of the session musicians were acknowledged or recognized publicly. Eventually, Odegard and writer Andy Gill put the story in print as a means of setting the record straight. With the release of More Blood, More Tracks, the full account has been laid bare once and for all.

EN: How old were you when Blood On The Tracks was recorded? How did that whole experience recording with Dylan unfold?

On the water in Hydra, Greece: Kevin Odegard with Susan Casey.
Kevin Odegard: I was a twenty four year-old brakeman on the C&NW when Blood On The Tracks was recorded. Although David Zimmerman had been my manager, my 1971 first album on Wooff Records failed in the marketplace and I was driving Red & White Taxis and playing occasional gigs and recording (Mill City Records Quadraphonic “Can’t Turn Back/Sunshine Silver Mine) with friends whose work I admired. Gregg Inhofer had been at my side early on, so when I got a call from David Zimmerman just after Christmas, 1974, I recommended Gregg immediately. My other suggestions, Stan Kipper and Doug Nelson, were in vain. The rhythm section had already been chosen. Bill Berg and Billy Peterson were Sound 80 favorites and David’s excellent choice.

Zimmerman chose me out of his friendship with my mother, a special person in both of our lives. I was nothing special on guitar, though I possessed a strong rhythmic command of an instrument I can only compare to a Stradivarius. Purchased following a summer stock run in Medora, North Dakota from Manny’s Music in New York, where Dylan himself had shopped, I now had an instrument in my hands pushing me forward with the Travis-picking method used by Steven DeLapp and Dr Chuck Anderson that summer in Medora.

These guys weren’t fooling around, noodling with forgettable hits of the day. Their repertoire dug deep into the Appalachian and Delta folk blues championed by Doc Watson and Mississippi John Hurt. I listened, spellbound all that summer of ‘69, rapt in my observational learning style. Stuck with a cheap Epiphone 12-string concert model, I simply put it down and watched where the boys’ fingers were going from string to string; what they were doing, when and how (metal fingerpicks!).

This is how I still learn today. My takeaway was an attitude, a refined point of view as to where imaginative accompaniment springs from. It comes naturally second nature, and only after practicing until my fingertips were bloody from the rapture of that Martin D-28 sound. There is nothing else like it in nature or craft. I can tell a Martin sound blindfolded at forty paces in a noisy room. It is, in my small world, the still, clear voice of the Prophet on the mountain. Nothing compares. Nothing ever will.

Touring the factory in Nazareth, PA last year, my heart and mindset was doubly reinforced. These are the American luthiers. Don’t bother showing me your custom Olson once owned by James Taylor. It’s just another expensive artifact to me, next to a Martin D-28. My Martin took me into the room with Bob Dylan for "Tangled Up In Blue." You can hear my Martin clearly on that song. How can I top that? To be honest, I play a 5-string Kani Lea uke nowadays, due to degerative arthritis in both hands. It’s a beautiful instrument that almost plays itself and has a thrilling, built-in jingle-jangle, but bury me with my Martin. I believe to this day it was the siren’s song of that Martin that got me on the Dylan session.

EN: Your book A Simple Twist of Fate was no doubt written to set the record straight since the Minnesota musicians received no public credit on the album. Were you pushed by anyone else to write that story? How did the book come to be?

KO: Fast-forward thirty years and I get a phone call from Gary Diamond, a music industry pal who’d discovered a feature article in MOJO magazine about the New York sessions for Blood On The Tracks. By this time I was a transit manager commuting to work. “Hey Kev, you could write the other half of this story and do a book with this MOJO writer, Andy Gill. Also on my mind by then was a healthy mix of mortality-awareness, Dylan’s recent output and growing legend. He was becoming a laureate of letters and a master of all he attempted. I admired that and jumped in with both feet, securing the best agent in the business, Paul Bresnick, a wonderful editor and publisher, Ben Schafer, and proceeded to a form of obsession so intense, art imitated life and I, like the character of Blood On The Tracks, lost my marriage, family, home, the works.

Paul Metsa had reunited most of the BOTT band a few years earlier for a show at First Avenue, and we partnered again to launch the book in March of ‘04 with a full band concert at the Pantages Theatre In Minneapolis. That first real blush of creative success was the unhappiest time of my life, and it took three more years to regain my footing. After the second printing, the book continued to be available as it remains today, a hard-won source of pride that somehow had legs and stood up.

The good folks in charge of researching the new More Blood, More Tracks Limited Edition have educated me on certain minor inconsistencies in the versions of events I was given while researching my book. There were vocal overdubs in the session logs I hadn’t seen at the time. That doesn’t keep me awake at night. Overdubs are an accepted part of the process. What DID keep me awake at nights over forty four years was the lack of written credits for the guys I helped get the gig. I’m talking about Gregg, Chris and by rote Peter Ostroushko. I have always felt guilty that I didn’t press harder for credits in real time. I spent decades thereafter in the Los Angeles music industry campaigning for the rights, earnings and credits for songwriters and film composers. In the digital age, everything required renegotiation.

I no longer carry that guilt around with me. Dylan’s office opened the door for me to accurately help credit everyone this time around, with correct spellings. I am free of that charge, that mission in my life. America now needs to laugh, so I’m gonna try to write a funny book with my life partner and spouse, Susan Casey. She appeared in my life in 2007 and witnessed much of this ado about something or other. The music business is hilarious. It has no form or structure. When geezers like me form dad bands, all hell breaks loose.

EN: Artifacts is a very nice album with some strong songs on it. The spirit of the opening songs is so mellow. Have all your albums been like this or is it a reflection of who you have become?

KO: Postscript: Artifacts is closure for me, a collection of selected recordings going back to Sound 80 in 1971. I did it with my buddy Gary Lopac to wrap things up for anyone who wants to trace the arc of an American kid who was struck by the lightning of the Beatles and Dylan. It’s my anthropology.

EN: Can you elaborate on the backstory for El Nino Suite? 

KO: El Niño Suite is my Blood On The Tracks, no more, no less. American working stiff hates his job, worries too much about the weather and death, loses job, marriage and life on a charter fishing boat in Mexico with an alternate, equally deadly ending wherein he commandeers his grandfather’s old wood boat and smuggles Marielitos out of Cuba, only to be eaten by a whale in the end. No good deed. Susan resurrected this poor man’s manifesto from recorded fragments in the cardboard boxes I moved into her basement.

          Most Of America Is NOT Participating In The Hysterical Rage You See On The News      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Daisy Luther via The Organic Prepper blog,

If you were to read about the United States of America from someplace else, you’d probably think it was a nation full of people who are gearing up to go to war. Anyone would think the same thing from what they saw in the media. You would see hysterical rage fueling terrible acts. You’d see the intense hatred between people who belong to different political parties. You’d believe this is nationwide.

But it’s not. Sure, there’s some tension if you talk politics, but in most places, it isn’t crazy in a life-threatening kind of way. Mostly, it’s pretty friendly.

But this isn’t the America of the media.

When I went through the news today to search for a writing topic, it was like being hit with a wall of despair. Parts of the country are truly in bad shape. The venomous hatred is like nothing I’ve ever seen in this nation.

There are absolutely pockets of rage – violent enclaves studded with people who are nothing more than domestic terrorists. Full-on fascists who unironically call themselves anti-fascists.

In Portland yesterday, some people in masks (and some who brazenly went without them) took over a major intersection and “directed” traffic, shouting obscenities and racial slurs toward white drivers. An elderly man became fearful and drove through them. They chased him down and began striking his vehicle with batons and rocks. AN OLD MAN. They were within minutes of beating him, according to reports. Meanwhile, the police “monitored” the situation from a distance, allowing the mob free reign. (Read more at Zero Hedge.) Near Portland, arsonists actually set fire to a truck bearing a couple of pro-Trump stickers.

In Kentucky, Senator Rand Paul’s wife sleeps with a gun. Fear is now a constant companion for her. She wrote an open letter to Senator Corey Booker that was published on CNN, calling him out for urging people to “get up in Congresspeoples’ faces.” Booker isn’t the only member of Congress who is inciting violence, either. Judicial Watch has filed an ethics complaint against Representative Maxine Waters for “inciting violence and assaults on the Trump Cabinet.”

It goes on and on. writer for The Late Show tweeted “I’m just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh’s life.” A special education teacher in Minneapolis tweeted, “So whose [sic] gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?” An executive from Google tweeted, “You are finished, @GOP. You polished the final nail for your own coffins. F–K. YOU. ALL. TO. HELL.” And these are just this week. Wow, and we thought Trump’s tweets were a bit over the top.

Lest it seem one-sided, there’s a whole language that angry conservatives use to insult liberals on Twitter. Twitter is a verbal war zone and there aren’t a lot of people taking the high road there.

Over the past year, we’ve seen violence at a Unite the Right rallies, notably the one in Charlottesville, Virginia that left a woman dead when a car drove into a crowd.

It’s impossible to find truly unbiased links for all of these and that leads me to my point.

It isn’t like this in everyday America. The media is painting an ugly picture and putting that picture everywhere so it seems like this is our reality.

It’s not.

Rage is not the reality for most of us.

Here’s the America I’ve seen.

A couple of days ago, my neighbors were grilling and we chit-chatted over the fence. They shared some delicious southern barbecue with us, and I passed on some of the last, delicious late tomatoes to them. They had a Hillary Clinton sign in their yard when we moved in, but they still caught our dog Bella and brought her home when she escaped over the fence for a little walkabout.

We helped the neighbors on the other side of our house when the husband had a heart attack last year. We couldn’t do much, but we went over while they were waiting for the ambulance and took care of their pets during the hospital stay. Later, the wife brought us a cake.  I have no idea for whom they voted and I don’t care. It was a delicious cake.

My landlady has bumper stickers all over her car with which I disagree. Some of them make me cringe internally, but I don’t feel obligated to point out her errors in critical thinking. I gave her a nice plant to thank her for letting us move in and she gave us a couple of pumpkins for the front porch. She brings dog biscuits for our pets every time she swings by to do a repair or collect the rent.

When I was in California, I was a part of the warmest network of homesteaders you can imagine. When there were wildfires, they opened up their fields and barns to others fleeing the flames with their livestock. We got together monthly to learn new skills and all “paid” the teacher with a homemade or homegrown goodie. When one homesteader broke her leg, we all took turns looking after her livestock until she recovered.

This is the America that I see. Neighbors being kind to neighbors. Communities that care about one another. People who don’t want to participate in the hysterical rage that we’re seeing all over the media.

I see an America that pulls together.

In times of trouble, our communities are there for one another. We do this without government intervention and media urging.

There’s the Cajun Navy, which formed after a bunch of guys who fish and hunt banded together and then went and rescued people who needed rescuing. There are the people in Hawaii who saw that the government wasn’t doing anything to help people displaced by a volcano, so they stepped in and built a tiny house community for their homeless neighbors.

There was the guy in Puerto Rico who bought a utility truck with his neighbors and restored power to their neighborhood himself. After Hurricane Harvey in Texas, there were stories of community that would melt even the coldest heart. And remember how practically the whole internet stepped in to support the woman who got in trouble for rescuing abandoned dogs and cats after Hurricane Florence?

We can and do pull together during hard times. And when those hard times happen, it doesn’t matter who somebody voted for or what they said on Twitter. That rage doesn’t matter anymore.

A few ways to have a less outraged day

First of all, I refuse to connect with any of my neighbors on social media. I won’t look up old friends there either. I just don’t need to know their deeply held political convictions that may or may not be ridiculous enough that I’d feel differently about them.

I know how kindly they treat stray cats. I know they share the extra apples from their tree with the rest of us. I know how cute the kitchen is of the woman with the apple tree because I spent a pleasant afternoon in there teaching her how to can applesauce. These are the things that matter.

I only use social media for business purposes, to help people who want to be better prepared, and to tell funny stories or share pictures of my cat, if I’m being honest. I can’t be bothered to get into arguments on there. When in history has anyone ever totally reversed their deeply held opinion on anything because someone on Facebook ALL-CAPPED the “truth” at them?

I don’t talk about politics and religion. Remember the days when this was the norm? When it was considered discourteous, particularly at the dinner table or at family functions? It was absolutely not done at the workplace either. Maybe instead of avoiding the topics, we should have learned to have these discussions civilly, but that ship has sailed. It’s now truly impossible for most people.

Over in my Facebook group, these topics are completely off-limits too. People get a warning when they post something political, and then if they continue to do so, they’re out of the group. That’s because we’re a community. We learn from each other and we celebrate our similarities. The hot-button issues don’t add to our conversations. Instead, they make people angry. Insults start to fly. People leave – good people. We don’t need that stuff. We need the exchange of information.

I believe these topics that will cause nothing but strife and alienation should be pushed back into places where they’re appropriate instead of front and center of all media publications, all social events, all online forums. Is the fact that I’m neither a Republican nor a Democrat really pertinent to my ability to teach you how to prepare for a power outage? Do my stepfather’s deeply held beliefs – ones with which I strongly disagree – actually change the fact that he is a wonderful, generous soul? Of course not. I focus on his kindness, not his cringe-worthy opinions. I know that arguing with him would be pointless – he’s not going to change his mind. And I like having a pleasant relationship with him.

These opinions we’re all so currently worked about?

They’re mere asides, personal tastes, like preferring whiskey instead of vodka over the ice in your highball glass.

These political arguments?

They don’t matter in the grand scheme of things.

If the SHTF tomorrow, you’d no longer care who the people surrounding you voted for in some rigged election. (I’m not talking about Russians. I’m talking about the fact that our entire system is corrupted.)

You would care about whether you could trust them to have your back. You’d care about whether they were willing to trade their eggs for your tomatoes. You’d care about how you could work together to keep your families safer.

Stop letting social media draw you into fights that are not your fights. It isn’t your responsibility to tell someone they’re wrong.

Stop letting the media make you feel like you’re under siege. While there are definitely some pockets of political violence here in the US, these pockets do not represent the majority of us.

Stop taking part in the rage

Sure, you can personally dislike things done by the President or by some member of Congress on the “other side of the aisle.” But stop thinking each one is a personal attack. These are just politicians politicking.

And they’re really be politicking in the next little while. They want to stir us all up into a frenzy as they try to motivate people to get out there and vote to put their corrupt heinies back in their comfortable seats on Capitol Hill. “It’s the most important election of our lifetime,” they’ll say.

Yeah. Just like the last election and the election before that.

Just like this recent clusterf*ck of a SCOTUS confirmation and the SCOTUS nomination before that.

They  – the politicians, the media, the rich people pulling the strings, and industries like Big Tech and Big Pharm – want us at each other’s throats. It supports them. It confirms the veracity of their whims. It puts money in their pockets and power in their hands. Divided we fall and these are the people who want that to happen.

Every single one of us is being manipulated. We’re being turned against one another. We are being ripped apart for the benefit of those who love power.

It doesn’t have to be like this.

We are better than this.

          Kevin Odegard's Artifacts Seasoned with Blood On The Tracks, Sweat and Tears      Cache   Translate Page      
This past month I acquired a copy of Kevin Odegard's most recent CD release titled Artifacts.with the intention of simply writing a review. After a couple listens I wanted to learn more. I was especially moved, spellbound, by the third track titled Dear Friend. I was fairly certain the song was inspired as a result of the loss of two very dear musician friends these past two years, both of whom I'd come to know through the Northland's Dylan Fest celebrations these past many years. If you do not want to spring for the whole CD, I would nearly insist that you go to the Amazon link at the end of this post and download that particular track. I am certain that if you remember the Summer of Love, you will have also experienced the loss of at least a few of your own dear friends. This track will connect to something you may have been unable to express.

Anyways, I learned Kevin was sailing in the Aegean Sea this week, but amenable to answering a few questions while out on the big water there.

For those unfamiliar with the story, Odegard was one of several musicians assembled in Minneapolis by Bob Dylan's brother David Zimmerman approximately three months after the initial recording sessions for Blood On The Tracks in New York. Dylan evidently had mixed feelings about some of the tracks that had been recorded and, as he had with Blonde On Blonde, decided it would be worth the effort to go somewhere and try to capture the sound he wanted.

So it was that Kevin Odegard was invited to play guitar on Bob Dylan’s 1974 album on Columbia Records with his guitar opening the now-oh-so-familiar bars intro to “Tangled Up In Blue.” After touring the Midwest with his KO Band Odegard moved to Los Angeles, where he became executive director of the National Academy of Songwriters (NAS), protecting the rights and earnings of songwriters. He co-created and co-produced “A Salute To The American Songwriter” for VH-1 and Showtime networks. In 2004 Kevin co-authored with Andy Gill A Simple Twist Of Fate: Bob Dylan and the Making of Blood On The Tracks. (DaCapo Press/Perseus Books).

As it turns out, Blood On The Tracks became the best-selling album of Dylan's career, emerging from a deep internal place while his marriage of many years was unravelling. 100,000 album covers had already been printed by the time the Minneapolis sessions were a wrap so that none of the session musicians were acknowledged or recognized publicly. Eventually, Odegard and writer Andy Gill put the story in print as a means of setting the record straight. With the release of More Blood, More Tracks, the full account has been laid bare once and for all.

EN: How old were you when Blood On The Tracks was recorded? How did that whole experience recording with Dylan unfold?

On the water in Hydra, Greece: Kevin Odegard with Susan Casey.
Kevin Odegard: I was a twenty four year-old brakeman on the C&NW when Blood On The Tracks was recorded. Although David Zimmerman had been my manager, my 1971 first album on Wooff Records failed in the marketplace and I was driving Red & White Taxis and playing occasional gigs and recording (Mill City Records Quadraphonic “Can’t Turn Back/Sunshine Silver Mine) with friends whose work I admired. Gregg Inhofer had been at my side early on, so when I got a call from David Zimmerman just after Christmas, 1974, I recommended Gregg immediately. My other suggestions, Stan Kipper and Doug Nelson, were in vain. The rhythm section had already been chosen. Bill Berg and Billy Peterson were Sound 80 favorites and David’s excellent choice.

Zimmerman chose me out of his friendship with my mother, a special person in both of our lives. I was nothing special on guitar, though I possessed a strong rhythmic command of an instrument I can only compare to a Stradivarius. Purchased following a summer stock run in Medora, North Dakota from Manny’s Music in New York, where Dylan himself had shopped, I now had an instrument in my hands pushing me forward with the Travis-picking method used by Steven DeLapp and Dr Chuck Anderson that summer in Medora.

These guys weren’t fooling around, noodling with forgettable hits of the day. Their repertoire dug deep into the Appalachian and Delta folk blues championed by Doc Watson and Mississippi John Hurt. I listened, spellbound all that summer of ‘69, rapt in my observational learning style. Stuck with a cheap Epiphone 12-string concert model, I simply put it down and watched where the boys’ fingers were going from string to string; what they were doing, when and how (metal fingerpicks!).

This is how I still learn today. My takeaway was an attitude, a refined point of view as to where imaginative accompaniment springs from. It comes naturally second nature, and only after practicing until my fingertips were bloody from the rapture of that Martin D-28 sound. There is nothing else like it in nature or craft. I can tell a Martin sound blindfolded at forty paces in a noisy room. It is, in my small world, the still, clear voice of the Prophet on the mountain. Nothing compares. Nothing ever will.

Touring the factory in Nazareth, PA last year, my heart and mindset was doubly reinforced. These are the American luthiers. Don’t bother showing me your custom Olson once owned by James Taylor. It’s just another expensive artifact to me, next to a Martin D-28. My Martin took me into the room with Bob Dylan for "Tangled Up In Blue." You can hear my Martin clearly on that song. How can I top that? To be honest, I play a 5-string Kani Lea uke nowadays, due to degerative arthritis in both hands. It’s a beautiful instrument that almost plays itself and has a thrilling, built-in jingle-jangle, but bury me with my Martin. I believe to this day it was the siren’s song of that Martin that got me on the Dylan session.

EN: Your book A Simple Twist of Fate was no doubt written to set the record straight since the Minnesota musicians received no public credit on the album. Were you pushed by anyone else to write that story? How did the book come to be?

KO: Fast-forward thirty years and I get a phone call from Gary Diamond, a music industry pal who’d discovered a feature article in MOJO magazine about the New York sessions for Blood On The Tracks. By this time I was a transit manager commuting to work. “Hey Kev, you could write the other half of this story and do a book with this MOJO writer, Andy Gill. Also on my mind by then was a healthy mix of mortality-awareness, Dylan’s recent output and growing legend. He was becoming a laureate of letters and a master of all he attempted. I admired that and jumped in with both feet, securing the best agent in the business, Paul Bresnick, a wonderful editor and publisher, Ben Schafer, and proceeded to a form of obsession so intense, art imitated life and I, like the character of Blood On The Tracks, lost my marriage, family, home, the works.

Paul Metsa had reunited most of the BOTT band a few years earlier for a show at First Avenue, and we partnered again to launch the book in March of ‘04 with a full band concert at the Pantages Theatre In Minneapolis. That first real blush of creative success was the unhappiest time of my life, and it took three more years to regain my footing. After the second printing, the book continued to be available as it remains today, a hard-won source of pride that somehow had legs and stood up.

The good folks in charge of researching the new More Blood, More Tracks Limited Edition have educated me on certain minor inconsistencies in the versions of events I was given while researching my book. There were vocal overdubs in the session logs I hadn’t seen at the time. That doesn’t keep me awake at night. Overdubs are an accepted part of the process. What DID keep me awake at nights over forty four years was the lack of written credits for the guys I helped get the gig. I’m talking about Gregg, Chris and by rote Peter Ostroushko. I have always felt guilty that I didn’t press harder for credits in real time. I spent decades thereafter in the Los Angeles music industry campaigning for the rights, earnings and credits for songwriters and film composers. In the digital age, everything required renegotiation.

I no longer carry that guilt around with me. Dylan’s office opened the door for me to accurately help credit everyone this time around, with correct spellings. I am free of that charge, that mission in my life. America now needs to laugh, so I’m gonna try to write a funny book with my life partner and spouse, Susan Casey. She appeared in my life in 2007 and witnessed much of this ado about something or other. The music business is hilarious. It has no form or structure. When geezers like me form dad bands, all hell breaks loose.

EN: Artifacts is a very nice album with some strong songs on it. The spirit of the opening songs is so mellow. Have all your albums been like this or is it a reflection of who you have become?

KO: Postscript: Artifacts is closure for me, a collection of selected recordings going back to Sound 80 in 1971. I did it with my buddy Gary Lopac to wrap things up for anyone who wants to trace the arc of an American kid who was struck by the lightning of the Beatles and Dylan. It’s my anthropology.

EN: Can you elaborate on the backstory for El Nino Suite? 

KO: El Niño Suite is my Blood On The Tracks, no more, no less. American working stiff hates his job, worries too much about the weather and death, loses job, marriage and life on a charter fishing boat in Mexico with an alternate, equally deadly ending wherein he commandeers his grandfather’s old wood boat and smuggles Marielitos out of Cuba, only to be eaten by a whale in the end. No good deed. Susan resurrected this poor man’s manifesto from recorded fragments in the cardboard boxes I moved into her basement.

          '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?

Guest: Doug Pagitt of Vote Common Good; Also: Voter registration surge after Taylor Swift endorsement, Nikki Haley's mysterious (and dishonest) resignation, and Hurricane Michael intensifies before FL landfall...

On today's BradCast, the religious left fights back! [Audio link to show follows below.]

But first: It's little wonder Fox 'News' doesn't like it when celebrities on the left speak out about politics. Sure, it's fine when a Republican actor or TV celebrity with zero political background runs for and becomes President of the United States. But if a singer or comedian sports hero on the left dares have an opinion, they need to "shut up and dribble". Vote.org reports a huge spike in voter registrations nationwide and in Tennessee this week, following pop star Taylor Swift's Instagram endorsement of the state's Democratic candidate, former Gov. Phil Bredesen, for the U.S. Senate in his race against Rep. Marsha Blackburn. Yes, bravely speaking out about politics helps. No wonder the right would like folks like Swift to shut up, especially as voter registration deadlines hit across the country this week and next.

At the same time, as a Category 3 hurricane barrels toward the Florida Gulf Coast, Democrats are forced to sue the state again, as they did in 2016, to force the Governor to extend voter registration, which officially ended on Tuesday night in the Sunshine State.

Also today, up in Washington, D.C., U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, one of the few top officials in the Trump Cabinet not considered to be a complete wingnut (a very low bar), announced her plan to resign at year's end for reasons that remain shrouded in much speculation. As she announced her planned exit today at the White House with Donald Trump, she managed to argue that since Trump -- who was laughed at, out loud, in the U.N. General Assembly just two weeks ago -- took office, "now, the United States is respected." As we discuss, that claim flies in the face of demonstrable facts supported by actual recent polling around the world.

Next up today, after Republicans ignored a statement last week from the National Coalition of Churches -- the nation's largest such group representing 38 denominations, 100,000 congregations and 40 million Americans -- to withdraw the U.S. Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh "immediately", a group of evangelicals are now hitting the road for a national bus tour to "Flip Congress for the common good."

We're joined today by Vote Common Good founder and executive director, Pastor DOUG PAGITT, to explain his group's attempted outreach to white evangelicals who may have previously supported Trump and his Republican Party. The non-profit, non-partisan organization's cross-country tour began in Pennsylvania last week and is set to hit Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, Texas, and New Mexico before wrapping up in California before the November 6th election.

Pagitt, the founding pastor of Solomon's Porch Christian Comuninity in Minneapolis (and who also hosts an afternoon drive time show on our Minneapolis/St. Paul affiliate, am950 KTNF!) tells me that there is a need for liberal and progressive religious community leaders on the left to speak out for Christian values in the dangerous era of Trump, even if it risks their tax-exempt status and even as white evangelicals have institutionalized their support of the Republican Party with millions of dollars over the past several decades.

"What we are saying is the Republican Congress has lost its ability, lost its moral compass, lost its spine, when it comes to standing up to the Trump Administration. Our need to flip Congress now is a bipartisan, non-partisan civic duty to put restraints on the Trump Administration," he says. "I think pastors and churches all over the country should be willing to risk their non-profit status in order to speak out about the Trump Administration because the Trump Administration is that dangerous. The idea that the thing that makes a Christian community a Christian community is that people don't have to pay taxes on the money they give to you, is the lowest possible level that a Christian community could be proud of. It's almost like the government is saying is 'if you speak up against us, we're going to make that a financial burden upon you'. And I think Christian churches should take on that burden. If you lose that 501c3 non-profit contribution status? Fair enough. Be like every other business that has to function in this society."

Pagitt details how he believes that many Christian voters have been conned into giving up their values and otherwise intimidated and frightened into voting against biblical teachings. He calls for the Christian left to build a political coalition to counter the long-entrenched, so-called Religious Right.

"We are trying to call the bluff on the evangelicals who, out of one side of their mouth, want to say that they follow the teachings of Jesus, and out of the other side of their mouth, are not just endorsing Donald Trump but seem to be wanting to move into a full embrace of Trumpism," Pagitt tells me, explaining why many evangelicals who know Trump represents the opposite of their beliefs, may still be afraid of voting for Democrats.  "People confuse their identity with their tactic. Voting is a tactic to bring about the common good. Voting ought not be seen as our identity, but a lot of religious people have merged their religious and civic identity with the political Republican Party...and [it's difficult] to start to separate out your identities from your tactics. When someone realizes in their life that they have a misplaced identity, that takes awhile for them to get their heads around."

It's a fascinating (and long overdue) national conversation that I recommend you tune in for.

Finally, Desi Doyen joins us for the latest Green News Report, as Hurricane Michael threatens Florida with catastrophic, global warming-fueled destruction and as the United Nations issues an alarming scientific report finding the worst impacts of climate change will arrive much sooner than predicted unless massive and immediate changes are made by the nations of the world...

http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Grip on Sports: The college basketball season can't start fast enough for some but is too early for others      Cache   Translate Page      

A GRIP ON SPORTS • College basketball games are right around the corner. Seems awful early, doesn’t it? Not anymore it doesn’t. Read on.

••••••••••

• Twenty years ago, Gonzaga basketball began a season that would change the trajectory of the program. It would finish in a classic matchup with Connecticut, one win from a Final Four berth.

But it all began in mid-November with a game versus the Jayhawks in Kansas.

By mid-November this season, the Zags will have played a “secret” scrimmage with Michigan State, an exhibition game with Central Washington and two regular season home games – against Idaho State and Texas Southern.

All that after weeks of practice, including a summer filled with either individual workouts, small group sessions or competitions overseas.

It’s almost a year-long sport.

As are most college sports.

Not that such schedules are all that new. It’s just that the high-profile sports – football and basketball – seem to take up more and more of the year.

Back in the late 1970s, when my knees didn’t ache all the time, I played baseball all year-round. We started school at UC Irvine in late September or early October, and baseball practice started the second week. Games were occasionally during the week, with a doubleheader on Saturday. I counted one year. We played 95 games, including all the fall games. There wasn’t much in the way of rules and the warm-weather schools just played all the time.

The NCAA stepped in, limited the time on the field and college baseball has never been the same.

(By the way, if I could have played eight hours a day, seven days a week, I probably would have. It was that fun. And I am sure many players in many sports feel the same way today I did then. )

With basketball, however, the NCAA is allowing coaches more and more time with players. It’s a good thing. Yes, there are limits. But if you limit the time a player can work with his college staff too much, the motivated ones will find someone to help them with their game, someone who is outside the NCAA’s sphere of control. It was happening more and more when the season limits were stricter.

That opens a plastic bag of worms no one wants opened, so the NCAA allowed college staffs more time with the players. It was one of the few good ideas the organization has instituted lately.

But the game schedule creeping into October isn’t needed. Don’t be surprised if it doesn’t happen someday soon, though. It seems inevitable. Just like GU making the NCAA Tournament come March.

•••

WSU: The story of this Pac-12 season has been colored by the dominance of the North. But the South earned a couple key wins last weekend. And the division’s teams moved up in Theo Lawson’s power rankings this week. … Theo spoke with Larry Weir yesterday for the latest Press Box pod.

Elsewhere in the Pac-12, the bowl picture among the conference’s best becomes clearer each week. … The title picture should become a bit clearer after this Saturday. The biggest game is in Eugene, where Oregon hosts rivalWashington. The Huskies’ defense will be in the crosshairs, as the Ducks’ offense tries to keep up with the UW stars. … Colorado’s defense will be tested by J.T. Daniels and a well-rested USC offense. … Utah will attempt to keep its momentum going against Arizona and Khalil Tate. … The UCLAdefensive line hopes to have its way with California. … Injuries are always a part of football. Arizona State is dealing with a crucial one. … With the basketball media day coming up, there are ballots being sent in. We pass along any we find. One of the favorites, UCLA, has lost another freshman for the season. … Finally, if this court decision stands up, it may change the nature of the NCAA.

Gonzaga: Ya, it’s a secret. Big one. GU and Michigan State will meet in a scrimmage later this month in Minneapolis. The secret part is no one will be their to document it. Jim Meehan has more in this story.

EWU: You want to be successful at any level of football? You better have a strong backup quarterback. The Eagles do, and he’ll be called on this week once again. Ryan Collingwood has the story of Eric Barriere. … Around the Big Sky, will Northern Colorado win a game? … Montana and North Dakota have a history. … Montana State’s offense isn’t built to attack Idaho’s defensive weakness. … Idaho State’s offense is, and that’s one of the reasons the Bengals are doing so well this season.

Preps: It was a busy Tuesday night in the area and we have roundups from soccer, slowpitch and volleyball to pass along.

Boxing: Chauncy Welliver is returning to the ring. Dan Thompson shares why and what’s ahead for the local boxer.

Chiefs: In other WHL news, an Everett player is hit with a five-game suspension.

Seahawks: The biggest news this week? The Hawks get to try to tackle Marshawn Lynch. They tackled what he meant to them yesterday and the consensus was clear: The Seahawk players miss him. … Doug Baldwin isn't hurt. … But others are. … Rashaad Penny isn't, but he is frustrated.

Sounders: The Seattle fans are as passionate about their team as any group in the MLS. It's not hard to understand. … As the regular season winds down, a player or two may have to step up to help the Sounders succeed.

• There is a good chance there will not be a Grip on Sports column tomorrow. Not because I don’t want to do one, but due to a hurricane that may or may not disrupt my travel plans. Its impact on what I am planning for tomorrow is still unclear. If there is one, it will be available here, of course. If there isn’t one, I’ll send out the Bat Signal on Twitter. Until later …

http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.

          Vitreous - Experimental Film      Cache   Translate Page      

"Vitreous" experimental film is a collaboration with Robert Seidel.

Film: Robert Seidel _ robertseidel.com
Music: Nikolai von Sallwitz _ vonsallwitz.com

2016 Visual Music Award - Frankfurt, DE
2016 Honorary Mention - Punto y Raya Festival - ZKM, Karlsruhe, DE
2015 Vimeo Staff Pick

The nine virtual sculptures underlying vitreous resulted from experimental setups by Robert Seidel for generating three-dimensional clusters of fibrous refractions, as well as the gravitational lensing of different volumetric and chromatic densities. Singular elements gravitate towards each other, accumulating in a gigantic sculptural system, where each entity exists with its own visual axis and vanishing point. The impalpable luminous formations create prismatic interactions between the ridges and plateaux of the main colours floating in front of the infinite violet background.

The multilayered, continuously expanding and decaying system is driven by semi-chaotic processes with localized impulses and their speculative chain reactions. In the spectrum of these possible movements, each singular sculpture becomes an integral component of the whole pictorial force-field. In its asymmetrical orchestration and multitude of spatial-temporal interactions, the abstract-organic images are close in appearance to the concepts of “moving paintings” and “living sculptures” Seidel develops for more than a decade now.

Originally vitreous was conceived as a media façade artwork of 80 × 24 × 14 Meters (Target City Lights, Minneapolis, USA, 2012). It later developed in a large-scale projection of 4 × 14 Meters (German Filmmuseum, Frankfurt, Germany, 2015) National Gallery in Prague - Video Wall project curated by Lunchmeat Festival. The short film released in December 2015 features a music score exclusively composed by Nikolai von Sallwitz.

          Supreme Court Tells North Dakota It Can Suppress All The Native Votes It Wants!      Cache   Translate Page      


With fewer than 30 days to go before the midterm elections, the Supreme Court decided yesterday to put a finger on the scales to suppress Democratic votes in North Dakota, allowing the state's voter ID law to go into effect before next month's election. Never mind that the law had been suspended during the primaries, or that early voting is already underway in the state. Now voters will have to show a government-issued photo ID that shows their residential street address, even though many of the state's Native Americans either don't have street addresses at all, or their existing ID cards don't include the street address. Gotta prevent non-existent voter fraud, after all. Or at least keep Democrat Heidi Heitkamp from keeping her seat in an insanely close US Senate race where a few thousand votes could make all the difference.


The Supremes -- voting without newly installed Brett Kavanaugh -- decided not to hear an appeal of a decision from a lower federal court, upholding that court's finding without the Republican-appointed majority's even having to justify its decision in an opinion. SCOTUSblog's Amy Howe lawsplains the plaintiff's case against the 2017 North Dakota law:

A group of Native American voters in North Dakota have challenged the law, telling the courts that the requirement that voters present identification bearing a street address could pose an obstacle to voting for Native Americans in several ways. Native Americans often live on reservations or in other rural areas where people do not have street addresses; even if they do, lawyers for the challengers argue, those addresses are frequently not included on tribal IDs. Moreover, the lawyers add, Native Americans in North Dakota are "disproportionately homeless."

Back in April, a federal district court ordered that the state accept ID cards showing a PO box address. As Daniel L. Hovland, the judge in that lower court, wrote, the demand for a street address would discriminate against thousands of Native Americans, since

The State has acknowledged that Native American communities often lack residential street addresses [...] Nevertheless, under current State law an individual who does not have a 'current residential street address' will never be qualified to vote. This is a clear 'legal obstacle' inhibiting the opportunity to vote." [emphasis in original]

Hovland also held that demanding a street address could not be justified under the National Voter Registration Act "or any other federal state laws[.]" Unfortunately, in September, a federal appeals court decided it would be just peachy for the state to demand a fixed street address to prevent voter fraud, even though the state has only found a single case of voter fraud in decades -- one guy who voted in two different counties in 2016.

Sucks to be you, thousands of Native voters! Also sucks to be Heidi Heitkamp, for whom this law appears to be tailor-made, as Pema Levy explains at Mother Jones:

Heitkamp won her seat by less than 3,000 votes in 2012 with strong backing from Native Americans, and she is the only statewide elected Democrat. North Dakota Republicans began changing voting rules to make it harder to cast a ballot months after Heitkamp's victory six years ago.

Ah, but there's nothing in the law specifically announcing "We are passing this bill to discriminate against Democrats, Native Americans, and Heidi Heitkamp," so the mere fact the law will have that effect doesn't necessarily make it discriminatory, at least under the very special rules the Republican-run Court seems determined to follow. (Seriously, go read that chilling Adam Serwer piece on how the Court is beginning to resemble its post-Reconstruction forerunner.)

Now, this ruling doesn't mean that Native people in North Dakota are completely out of luck when it comes to voting this fall. For one thing, North Dakota is unique in that it requires no voter registration at all, so the only deadline for getting a satisfactory ID is Election Day. And it's still possible for voters with no assigned street address to get an ID, although of course it involves a workaround:

Workarounds involve some work, which is the whole point of voter-suppression laws, now isn't it? Fortunately, there are groups to help people get that work done and jump through the hoops. And homeless people can register with the address where they sleep. But that doesn't at all erase the fact that Republicans just plain like making voting harder, in the name of combating the phantom plague of "voter fraud," which is already illegal.

If it makes you feel any better, in Missouri, where Claire McCaskill is also fighting to hold on to her US Senate seat, a state judge just put the kibosh on part of Missouri's voter ID law, which of course was also passed to help Republicans. No surprise, the state is already planning an appeal, and there's no telling whether the case will get a final decision by Election Day. God knows just letting every American vote can't be allowed, because heavens, that would be like the Rwandan Genocide.

Let's get disrespectful: Nobody comes to Ohio State to play in the Indiana game.

Recruits choose Columbus for a variety of reasons ranging from NFL aspirations to childhood dreams, but at no point in the official visit does any player hear, "and best of all, being East Division rivals, we get to face the Hoosiers every year." 

hard to cover a TE who runs a 5.0-40, sure
BIA getting sliced up by a couple of 3-star recruits.

Neither Austin Mack or Terry McLaurin defected to Ohio to stick it to the native flagship, yet after four hours and a few harrowing moments their team was one victory formation away from more than doubling-up the Homecoming guests on the scoreboard.

They racked up over 600 yards of offense, then spent the postgame admitting they were off and apologizing for being hungover. Fellas, that is disrespectful.

And that's largely because nobody comes to Ohio State to play in the Indiana game. Everybody knows they come to Ohio State to play in the Minnesota game, at noon. Let's get Situational!

THE RUNDOWN: WEEK SIX

11. This tweet has been living rent-free in my head since the aftermath of the Penn State game.

First, Chris is the best-selling author of multiple books on football strategy and tends to communicate his sports opinions in a sterile, unemotional tone. Second, he knows a lot more than most do about how Urban Meyer teams traditionally operate from philosophy to execution.

Third, reading that tweet while re-watching Ben Victor's insane touchdown (not the one pictured above, the other one) took me back to sad John Cooper postgame press conferences when he would wistfully bemoan players just needing to make more plays whenever his game strategy was questioned.

Ohio State's staff should be running strategic circles around the Tom Allens of the world, let alone the James Franklins.

It's optimal to strike a healthy balance between players making plays and out-coaching fourth-tier adversaries like former and notorious Michigan punching bag/current IU OC Mike DeBord and his boss, who conveniently fits into IU's football personnel budget. Ohio State's staff should be running strategic circles around the Tom Allens of the world, let alone the James Franklins. It doesn't.

The Buckeyes beat Penn State and Indiana because the Buckeyes have significantly better players than Penn State and Indiana. That's due to excellent recruiting, culture, retention, strength and conditioning - all of which are a credit to the coaching staff. So you could be led to believe strategy is overrated when it isn't necessary to win.

You could trust the defense is carved up repeatedly on purpose, that running backs want to decline production for five straight games and that teasing 100 yards in penalties is all part of the plan. This could be a midseason rope-a-dope, ramping up for November. Genius.

But after squandering a CFP repeat in 2015, limping through 2016 and showing a glaring lack of discipline and organization from 2017 through Saturday, it's okay to suggest the in-game stuff needs a lot of work. Just say it in a sterile, unemotional tone.

"Why does the scoreboard say we have no timeouts left with eight minutes left in the 1st quarter?" | © Joe Maiorana-USAT Sports

10. Right around the time you finally got over Ohio State taking a delay of game penalty in Happy Valley when it couldn't get a two-point conversion snapped **deep breath** and then using a timeout with the clock stopped because of the penalty, assumedly to get the right play called **exhale** and then just running an grab-bag Players Just Need to Make Plays play that failed...the Buckeyes kicked off Homecoming and used all of their timeouts in just eight minutes.

That isn't even three hot dogs into the game for the average 11W reader. Here's when those timeouts were burned:

  • 12:29 left in 1Q | Indiana had the ball and was facing 3rd & 29 at the OSU 33.
  • 7:34 left in 1Q | Indiana had the ball with a 1st & 10 near midfield.
  • 6:08 left in 1Q | Indiana had the ball and was facing 4th & 3 at the OSU 29.

That seems a little...panicky? Fire drilly? IU was a four-touchdown underdog with a pedestrian offense. Ohio State did not call a timeout the rest of the game.

Two reasonable theories: 1) this coaching staff is full of alphas, which often results in chaos. 2) this coaching staff gets confused, a lot. And its players get confused too - as players often do; this time against IU's offense, which didn't have a 300-yard passing game this season until it met Ohio State's defense.

drag route to McLaurin
Hmmm, the exact same drag route touchdown that OSU ran on Oregon State in Game One. Who could have called this play?

9. I sat behind the Ohio State bench on Saturday and unwittingly found myself playing a game called Where's the Headset. Like, if there was a weird play call (Mike Weber up the gut on 2nd and 10 and then again on 3rd and 9, whaaaaaaa) was Urban's headset on his head, over his ears and with the mic in front of his mouth and his lips moving? It was!

On the very next drive Dwayne Haskins hit a wheel route to J.K. Dobbins, a flare to Luke Farrell and boundary shots at McLaurin and Parris Campbell. My eyes tracked Urban, and he had his headset around his neck! Could it be that Ryan Day or Kevin Wilson had the director's chair? Was this a scientific observation? Does correlation mean causation? Do fish have feelings? Can bees smell fear? Let's shout all of these questions into the cosmos.

tempo tempo tempo tempo tempo
Dwayne Haskins running tempo: Legal, but unfair.

Oh, in case you're wondering: on each of Haskins' designed runs, Urban's headset was on. Oh yeah baby. Turn it up, play the hits.

8. Haskins could have broken a decades-old school record held by Art Schlichter - currently serving 10 years for stealing millions of dollars to fuel a gambling addiction - if he had simply been allowed to throw one short, garbage time touchdown.

He also would have covered the spread! **Al Michaels voice** Do you believe in irony? Yessss. Let's check the passing chart after Haskins' hungover 455-yard 6-TD passing day:

THANK YOU FOR RAINBOWS: WEEK 6
PASSING GAME CREDIT GOES TO: BEAV GERS FROG WAVE LIONS IU
RYAN DAY: ZEN MASTER 25% 25% 35% 30% 30% 35%
HASKINS' ARM: PRECISion Instrument 30% 30% 35% 40% 30% 30%
TIM BECK EFFECT: FINALLY GRADUATED 10% 10% 5% 5% 5% 0%
BRIAN HARTLINE EFFECT: OBVIOUS 20% 20% 15% 20% 30% 35%
TOTE NATION: BEAUTIFUL DISTRACTION 15% 15% 10% 5% 5% 0%

Tim Beck's outright sabotage of Tom Herman's room has zeroed out midway through the season, as scientists and mathematicians predicted. What the experts missed was the Ohio State running game hitting a Meyer-era low for confidence and production.

Jones thinks the issues are around blocking, that they're fixable - and that we have seen the blueprint for opposing defenses in the season's second half. I for one am excited for Haskins pair his boring 400-yard passing days with the tree-shredding ground attack we got so accustomed to prior to his arrival. 

7. Meyer is now 76-8 at Ohio State. He would be 79-8 were it not for his suspension. Only having two B1G titles and one national championship feels like an underachievement in an era when every passing Sunday brings another eight-hour Ohio State football advertisement where many of the most exciting showmen among the pros were his pupils.

run it upppppppp
Current NFL starters Ezekiel Elliott, Jeff Heuerman, Pat Ellflein, Billy Price and Taylor Decker celebrate the final TD of the 2014 football season.

We're conditioned to absorb Saturdays while holding a red pen to grade the effort we wait all year to see, and it's this willful joylessness that sucks the pleasure out of a run that began with a still brown-haired Jim Tressel standing in the middle of a basketball court promising broken-you that you would soon be proud.

Eleven months later the Buckeyes ended a six-game losing streak in Ann Arbor, and 17 years later Michigan's in an eight-game drought in Columbus. In between, we've been treated to a gilded era in Ohio State history; one that is unmatched by any of the dead men in black and white photos that preceded either of those two coaches.

The Buckeyes have a Heisman candidate slinging the ball around like it's never been slung before.

Empires fall. Look at Florida State now. Look at what Alabama sustained between Gene Stallings and Nick Saban. Look at Nebraska pretty much since Sisqo released the Thong Song. Tom Brady has won five conference titles since the last time his alma mater won one. Empires fall. It is the inevitability of sport.

Ohio State's theme this season is to Win the Moment. Put the red pen down for a stretch and try to savor both those wins and the moments that continue to build upon this marvelous and historic run. The Buckeyes have a Heisman candidate slinging the ball around like it's never been slung before. He's either going to run out of eligibility or forfeit it. Grade less. Smile more.

6. Yeah, so anyway - this Ohio State defense routinely looks like it’s playing with only eight guys. They should fix that!

HALFTIME: THE BOURBON

There is a bourbon for every situation. Sometimes the spirits and the events overlap, which means that where bourbon is concerned there can be more than one worthy choice.

Keeping with today's hangover theme - let's all travel back to our formative years when teachers would surprise and delight classes with an "educational film" in lieu of "actual instruction" which may or may not have been due to a "self-induced headache" brought on by "after school activities" that resulted in "dehydration." Movie day!

Teaching is hard. It's harder when it hurts to speak. So, here's an educational bourbon film. 

Was it good? I haven't watched it, but the title looks interesting! Here's to no hangover next week.

4. Before we talk Minnesota, let's revisit a few key particulars from Ohio State's sixth victory of the season and 11th win in a row.

The Buckeyes just scored 49 points against a team that was allowing less than half of that - and ended the game in victory formation in position to score again - and the tone among the winners was decidedly negative as evidenced by players proactively talking about their substandard week of practice. Don't worry about complacency.

They scored in every quarter, getting touchdowns on 7 of 13 drives. This game would have been unfathomable to complain about as recently as 2011, an era prior to Eleven Warriors hiring actual, trained journalists to cover Ohio State sporting events. Before we had our current payroll of professionals, the old guard would share beat-writing responsibilities on Saturdays. 

In 2011 I drew the short straw (note - they were all short straws that season) and got the Illinois game. If you don't remember what happened that afternoon, my game recap was titled Puntageddon. Here's a passage from that story you won't be able to un-read:

Ohio State's third drive began with a mix-up in the backfield with Miller and Herron colliding, resulting in a five-yard loss. Herron compensated on the next play, juking around Illini defenders for nine yards and putting the Buckeyes in a third and short situation.

Jim Bollman telegraphed the next play right into the teeth of the Illinois defense and the Buckeyes were forced to punt.

Ohio State completed a total of one pass that day. One. Here it is!

completely uncoached Braxton Miller: still good

That team was loaded with pros, and some eventual national champions. Grade less. Smile more.

3. Last week we had to discuss whether Michigan is still Ohio State's main rival in the Big Ten (yes) with the emergence of the (no) Penn State (no) Nittany (nope) Lions (riding a 1-6 stretch vs. the Buckeyes, FYI) and I threw Michigan State (also, no) in as column fodder to demonstrate that the Spartans had a better claim (still no) to the throne than (no) PSU. 

RECAP: MAIN RIVAL?
FOE MAIN RIVAL?
PSU No.
MSU No.
ITSELF Hmm.
UM Yes.

Anyway, Sparty lost to Northwestern on Saturday, at home, on Homecoming. It was the third straight year the Spartans failed to beat the Wildcats. It was also Northwestern's third straight win in East Lansing - Pat Fitzgerald's band of merry nerds has taken four of the last five against the B1G program that has challenged and beaten Meyer's Buckeyes the most.

Losing three straight home games to Northwestern is a phrase sends a chill through my spine. I'm 44, which means I've only lived long enough to see Ohio State lose to the Wildcats anywhere, once. When Ara Parseghian passed away last year that left Northwestern with no living coaches who have ever beaten the Buckeyes.

TL: DR Grade less.

2. Antoine Winfield Jr. is injured and out for the season, rendering me unable to name a single current Golden Gopher. Marion Barber III and Laurence Maroney are the first two Minnesota players that enter my mind, and they've been gone so long they beat Alabama in a bowl game. Reminder: Minnesota fired Glenn Mason (he had a 64-57 record there) and has gone 63-76 since.

I am as unprepared for Goldie 2K18 as Ohio State was for IU's 1st quarter offense. No idea what these guys are packing. Hopefully the Dilly Bar guy is still there.

Assuming they have at least two players with blond hair flowing out the back of their helmets, like dime store knock-off Chase Winoviches. The Internet tells me Minnesota has a 6'9" freshman offensive lineman who weighs 400 lbs and probably isn't done growing. That rules. Who said this game had no intrigue.

1. Halfway point grades? Sure - let's put them on the record and revisit at the end of the semester.

          Trumpianity Has Nothing To Do With Jesus' Message To Man      Cache   Translate Page      

Benjamin Corey is a prominent evangelical religious figure-- but not in the way most of us think about evangelicals, especially since the so much of the evangelical movement has sold itself to Trump. Corey is an outspoken critic of American Nationalism within the Christianity and writes that Christians should pledge their loyalty only to God, and never to a government . A few months ago, he wrote a post on his very popular and influential blog, Patheos, 10 Signs You’re Actually Following TRUMPianity Instead of CHRISTianity that takes on Trump and his followers directly.
In the Era of Trump’s America, I must admit that I hardly recognize the very people who raised me. I was brought up by the Religious Right, and went on to become a faithful foot soldier for the cause of conservative Christianity and right-wing politics until my mid 30’s. However, long gone is their commitment to the values they tried to instill in me, and so much else that once consistently encompassed their collective identity.

Sadly, my old tribe seems to collectively struggle to realize they’ve done exactly what they spent the entire Left Behind series warning me not to do: they have fallen in line behind a worldly leader who arose to power during a time of “wars and rumors of wars,” who did so by falsely pretending to be a Christian, but who would ultimately lead them to follow an entirely new religion.

To help my former right-wing family out, here’s the top 10 signs you’re now following TRUMPianity instead of CHRISTianity:

10. You spent 8 years criticizing every move of Obama, but the minute Trump was sworn in you started telling everyone that “Christians should respect the president” and that being “divisive” is a sin.

Remember the you of two years ago? That’s okay, because I do-- and you certainly didn’t seem to believe that Christians should “respect the president” or that being politically divisive was any sort of sin.

Here I am recalling you taught me that, “sin is always sin” and doesn’t change just because culture changes. Huh!

9. You think, “but we’re a nation of laws” somehow trumps biblical teachings on how immigrants are to be treated.

You didn’t expect me to forget all of those years where you taught me that the Bible is the “final authority for all matters of living,” did you?

Good, because I didn’t-- but it certainly sounds like you did. I’m reminded every time you dismiss what the Bible teaches about the treatment of immigrants with, “But, but… we’re a nation of laws!”

I thought you’d said, “We have a responsibility to follow God’s law, not man’s law!” just a few weeks ago. Silly me!

8. Your church is planning a “patriotic worship service” for the 4th of July.

Let me simplify this for you: there’s no such thing as “patriotic worship” unless you’re willing to simply admit you’re worshipping your own country.

You were the ones who taught me that if God isn’t the focal point of our worship, that it’s sinful idolatry. Surely you remember Jesus saying, “It is written: worship the Lord your God and serve him only”?

Apparently there’s now room for two. Strange!

7. You instinctively applaud when Trump threatens to “bomb the shit” out of people, but quickly push back if someone quotes what Jesus taught about violence and enemy love.

Jesus commanded we love our enemies, and that we never repay evil with evil but instead repay evil with good. I mean, it’s right there in the red words. I still have it underlined from 1984.

But now when I quote that in response to your thinking that it’s all cute when Trump wants to “knock the crap” out of a protestor or nuke a country, you tell me that I’m twisting scripture.

Sorry, but I think siding with Trump over Jesus is… as Trump would say: Sad!

6. You think that having a filthy mouth and boasting about sexual immorality is a sign of being unsaved, but when it comes to Trump you all of a sudden have a “Who am I to judge?” attitude.

I mean, c’mon. I grew up under your guidance and I think we both know that neither one of us ever thought we’d see the day when you became an advocate of not judging. You told me that if I had sex before marriage or used the F-word that it would be evidence I was never saved to begin with.




Doesn’t it seem odd to you that it was Trump, and not Jesus who got you to (selectively) soften up on the whole judging others thing? Interesting!

5. You think it’s God-honoring to refuse to bow to a national statue, but that you should be fired from your job, kicked out of the country, or even charged with treason for refusing to stand for the flag.

Let me get this straight: When everyone obeyed the king and bowed down to the national statue and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refused-- under the pain of death-- to pledge their allegiance to anyone except God, they were the good guys of the story...

But fast forward to present day America, and the good guys are actually the ones who want to force everyone to pay respect to the national symbol? Plot twist!

4. You want the nation to return to "biblical values"... except for all those socialist sounding biblical things like caring for the poor, welcoming the stranger, giving food to the hungry, etc.

So you really want the nation to return to “biblical values”? You do realize that when Israel lived under God’s law (which you love to quote when talking of same sex marriage) also included laws that mandated the rich be taxed, even down to the food they had, and that the wealth was to be redistributed to the poor and immigrants, yes?

Or is this the one situation where you’d rather not remember that you keep saying, “But God’s law never changes”? Confused!

3. Your church spends one month a year celebrating the story of refugee family who fled their violent homeland and secretly crossed the border to safety, only to return home years later where their son became another unarmed person of color killed by the state’s violent security forces because they “felt threatened”...

Yet you spend 11 months of the year missing the obvious. Ironic!

2. You claimed Barack Obama’s election was the result of evil forces, but the minute Trump was sworn into office you started quoting verses about how “God picks a nation’s kings and queens.”




For real, how does this work? Did God only get involved and start deciding elections with the past election cycle, or did you just start quoting this verse after the black guy left?

There’s a lot in this world I don’t know, but I do happen to know the answer to that one. Easy!

1. You spent the 90’s saying “character counts” but now say, “We don’t vote for a national pastor.”

Ahh, my absolute favorite sign you’re following Trumpianity instead of Christianity.

Version of you from today, I’d like you to meet the version of you from the Clinton administration. You were supposedly so morally outraged that you coined the term, “Character Counts” to explain why you felt Clinton was unfit for office. The version of you from today? My, my… as I listen to you explain that “We don’t vote for a national pastor…” I am keenly aware of how having the political power changes things. Totally!





So you’re a loyal Trump supporter and a loyal Christian?

I’m not so sure.

You might want to take a more self-critical look and make sure you’re following Christianity, and not Trumpianity. Really!

That brings us right to the Vote Common Good "Flip The House" bus tour. Yesterday Newsweek reported that while evangelical Christians have traditionally stuck by the Republican Party, a group of them who are anti-Trump enough to hit the road ahead of the midterm elections to convince their peers to ditch the GOP. They want to help flip Congress so the Democrats have control.
With the message that Republicans have fallen short of pushing for the beliefs of core Christians, the "Vote Common Cause" bus tour is traveling to 30 congressional districts where Democratic challengers seek to defeat conservative incumbents. The tour will visit 14 states. It began last week in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and is slated to wrap up two days before the November midterm elections in Fresno, California.

"The need to flip Congress has some of us behaving in ways we have never had to before,” Minneapolis pastor Doug Pagitt, the executive director of Vote Common Good, told the Huffington Post Monday.

“These times call for a response that matches the outrageous nature of what’s happening," Pagitt said. "This is not a typical partisan conversation.”

The tour is unusual since white evangelical Protestants have traditionally backed the GOP for its conservative approach to abortion and LGBTQ equality, among other social issues. In the 2016 presidential election, a whopping 81 percent of white evangelicals voted for Trump, according to FiveThirtyEight.

"We need candidates who would not turn their back on the poor and the sick, who would not separate children from their parents, who support liberty and opportunity for all people,” Arkansas pastor Robb Ryerse, the political director for Vote Common Good, said in a statement to the Huffington Post.

“What we’re doing is trying to give courage to people whose hearts are already opened, whose beliefs have already shifted, to say that they can vote and act according to their own beliefs,” Pagitt said.

Vote Common Good claims it is nonpartisan and backs candidates based on how their platforms match with evangelical values. This year, the group is solely supporting Democratic candidates. The tour is scheduled to stop for six days in Texas to push for Democratic Representative Beto O'Rourke, who seeks to unseat Republican Senator Ted Cruz.


The tour kicked off in eastern Pennsylvania and the Vote Common Good rally for Susan Wild seems to have done some good. According to WFMZ-TV a brand new poll of district voters from DeSalles University shows Wild crushing her right wing opponent, Marty Nothstein, 50.0% to 31.2%.. 80% of Democrats, 8% of Republicans and 39% of independents say they plan to vote for Wild, while just 67% of Republicans, 3% of Democrats and 16% of independents plan to vote for Nothstein. Tomorrow the Vote Common Good tour bus pulls up to the Grandview Park Bandshell on Grandview Blvd in Sioux City, Iowa to help introduce congressional candidate, progressive Democrat J.D. Scholten, to evangelical voters. Aside from J.D., speakers include Frank Schaeffer, Doug Pagitt, Samir Selmanović and Brian McLaren.

Eryn O'Neil grew up in the southwestern suburbs of Chicago. When it came time for college, it was easy for her to move a few states over and go to college in a small town in Iowa. She now lives in Minneapolis, and after years of being self-employed, she just finished a months-long journey to find her next job.

Eryn talks to me about being the first female engineering manager at her new company, what excites her about technology, the hurdles of married life, and staying healthy in a demanding industry.
