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

I was living in Harlem.

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

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

We always said our meeting was destined.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We were one.

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

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

We had so many things in common.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Get up and run!

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

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

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

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

Getting Local Land Use Approvals Right
October 9, 2018

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

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

Categories of Review

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

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

Shortening Timelines

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

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

Exploring New Ideas

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

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


          Fuzzing技术总结与工具列表      Cache   Translate Page      
版权声明:本文为博主原创文章,未经博主允许不得转载。 https://blog.csdn.net/wcventure/article/details/82085251

首先推荐阅读2018年computing Surveys 的《Fuzzing: Art, Science, and Engineering》
https://github.com/wcventure/wcventure/blob/master/Paper/Fuzzing_Art_Science_and_Engineering.pdf
其次推荐阅读2018年Cybersecurity 的 《Fuzzing: a survey》
https://www.researchgate.net/publication/325577316_Fuzzing_a_survey
里面对fuzzing技术和fuzzing工具有详细的介绍。

一、什么是Fuzzing?

Fuzz本意是“羽毛、细小的毛发、使模糊、变得模糊”,后来用在软件测试领域,中文一般指“模糊测试”,英文有的叫“Fuzzing”,有的叫“Fuzz Testing”。本文用fuzzing表示模糊测试。

Fuzzing技术可以追溯到1950年,当时计算机的数据主要保存在打孔卡片上,计算机程序读取这些卡片的数据进行计算和输出。如果碰到一些垃圾卡片或一些废弃不适配的卡片,对应的计算机程序就可能产生错误和异常甚至崩溃,这样,Bug就产生了。所以,Fuzzing技术并不是什么新鲜技术,而是随着计算机的产生一起产生的古老的测试技术。

Fuzzing技术是一种基于黑盒(或灰盒)的测试技术,通过自动化生成并执行大量的随机测试用例来发现产品或协议的未知漏洞。随着计算机的发展,Fuzzing技术也在不断发展。

二、Fuzzing有用么?

Fuzzing是模糊测试,顾名思义,意味着测试用例是不确定的、模糊的。

计算机是精确的科学和技术,测试技术应该也是一样的,有什么的输入,对应什么样的输出,都应该是明确的,怎么会有模糊不确定的用例呢?这些不确定的测试用例具体会有什么作用呢?

为什么会有不确定的测试用例,我想主要的原因是下面几点:

1、我们无法穷举所有的输入作为测试用例。我们编写测试用例的时候,一般考虑正向测试、反向测试、边界值、超长、超短等一些常见的场景,但我们是没有办法把所有的输入都遍历进行测试的。

2、我们无法想到所有可能的异常场景。由于人类脑力的限制,我们没有办法想到所有可能的异常组合,尤其是现在的软件越来越多的依赖操作系统、中间件、第三方组件,这些系统里的bug或者组合后形成的bug,是我们某个项目组的开发人员、测试人员无法预知的。

3、Fuzzing软件也同样无法遍历所有的异常场景。随着现在软件越来越复杂,可选的输入可以认为有无限个组合,所以即使是使用软件来遍历也是不可能实现的,否则你的版本可能就永远也发布不了。Fuzzing技术本质是依靠随机函数生成随机测试用例来进行测试验证,所以是不确定的。

这些不确定的测试用例会起到我们想要的测试结果么?能发现真正的Bug么?

1、Fuzzing技术首先是一种自动化技术,即软件自动执行相对随机的测试用例。因为是依靠计算机软件自动执行,所以测试效率相对人来讲远远高出几个数量级。比如,一个优秀的测试人员,一天能执行的测试用例数量最多也就是几十个,很难达到100个。而Fuzzing工具可能几分钟就可以轻松执行上百个测试用例。

2、Fuzzing技术本质是依赖随机函数生成随机测试用例,随机性意味着不重复、不可预测,可能有意想不到的输入和结果。

3、根据概率论里面的“大数定律”,只要我们重复的次数够多、随机性够强,那些概率极低的偶然事件就必然会出现。Fuzzing技术就是大数定律的典范应用,足够多的测试用例和随机性,就可以让那些隐藏的很深很难出现的Bug成为必然现象。

目前,Fuzzing技术已经是软件测试、漏洞挖掘领域的最有效的手段之一。Fuzzing技术特别适合用于发现0 Day漏洞,也是众多黑客或黑帽子发现软件漏洞的首选技术。Fuzzing虽然不能直接达到入侵的效果,但是Fuzzing非常容易找到软件或系统的漏洞,以此为突破口深入分析,就更容易找到入侵路径,这就是黑客喜欢Fuzzing技术的原因。

三、基于生成和基于编译的Fuzzing算法?*

Fuzzing引擎算法中,测试用例的生成方式主要有2种:
1)基于变异:根据已知数据样本通过变异的方法生成新的测试用例;
2)基于生成:根据已知的协议或接口规范进行建模,生成测试用例;
一般Fuzzing工具中,都会综合使用这两种生成方式。

基于变异的算法核心要求是学习已有的数据模型,基于已有数据及对数据的分析,再生成随机数据做为测试用例。

四、state-of-the-art AFL

AFL就是著名的基于变异的Fuzzer。

          ALDS Review: Astros Annilhilation      Cache   Translate Page      

Another baseball season draws to a close in Cleveland, not with a bang but a whimper.

Just like last year, the Indians exit the postseason at the first stage, this time swept out of the American League Division Series by the reigning champion Houston Astros. It was upsetting to see the Tribe play just a single playoff game at home, and even more frustrating to watch them throw the game away (literally).

There will be a great deal of questions asked of this team after such a disappointing conclusion to the season. Was the Indians lackluster divisional race a cause for their uninspiring performance? The 103-win Astros were pushed all the way in their race for the AL West by Oakland, keeping them sharp as they entered October. The Indians on the other hand coasted to their divisional title, perhaps dulling their ability to rise to the playoff atmosphere that Houston thrived upon.

In the Indians' defense, they were up against a team stacked head-to-toe with quality, with no visible weaknesses in any department. The Astros pitching was particularly dominant, and entered the postseason ranked first in team ERA (3.11), starters ERA (3.16), bullpen ERA (3.03) and strikeouts (1,687) for the entire league. Their dominance showed through in each game, severely limiting the Tribe hitters.

It's no wonder the Indians batted a pitiful .144 (13-for-90) for 6 total runs in the entire series.

Two of those runs came directly from the bat of Francisco Lindor, as the star shortstop hit two solo homers. In fact, Lindor was the only player to perform well at the plate for Cleveland, batting .364 in 11 at-bats, scoring 3 runs, basically accounting for 50% of the offensive output. The 24 year-old face of the franchise never let his head drop.


On the other hand you have Jose Ramirez, Cleveland's most dangerous hitter during the regular season, reduced to a shell of his usual self against Houston. In 11 at-bats, Ramirez couldn't record a single hit and dating back to last season, Ramirez is 2-for-31 in postseason play.

He wasn't alone in his struggles. The Tribe's other big bats like Edwin Encarnacion (1-for-10), Josh Donaldson (1-for-11) and Yonder Alonso (0-for-6) also underperformed. Even the consistent Michael Brantley was limited to just 2 hits in 10 at-bats, in what could well be his final games in an Indians uniform.

The lineup will take the brunt of the criticism for this postseason letdown, as they rightly should. You don't need a degree to know that scoring runs will win you games and sadly the Tribe hitters just couldn't get it done against an admittedly superior Astros team.

However, the Indians' pitching staff must take their share of the responsibility as well, as they were far from perfect.

Something was off right from the start of the series, when Corey Kluber took a beating in Houston to open game one. The ace of the staff never looked like his normal self and gave up three home runs in his 4.2 innings of work. He continued to leave the ball up in the zone and the Astros hitters punished him accordingly.

Thankfully Carlos Carrasco and Mike Clevinger, the starters for games two and three, were very effective. Carrasco lasted 5.1 innings, giving up 6 hits for 2 earned runs and kept the Tribe in the game. Clevinger was superb in his start, showing just how far he's progressed in 2018. Sunshine pitched 5 innings with 9 strikeouts, allowing just 3 hits and 1 earned run.

The biggest problem, as was so often the case this season, was when Carrasco and Clevinger handed the game over to the bullpen.

Cody Allen and Brad Hand were the two individuals who really suffered and were taken apart by the vaunted Astros lineup. Allen made two appearances, pitching a third of an inning in game one and two thirds of an inning in game three, and was diabolical, giving up 4 hits for 6 earned runs, two of them homers (one in each game). Considering this series was likely Allen's last time in a Cleveland uniform, it's a very somber and disappointing way for him to bow out.

Hand, considered the bullpen saviour in the season's final months, was also hit hard. He pitched an inning in game two and two thirds of an inning in the game three nightmare. The left-hander was stung for 3 hits and 2 earned runs altogether, including the three-run bomb by Carlos Correa that sent Tribe fans heading for the exits in game three.


Perhaps the performance that hurt Tribe fans the most came from Trevor Bauer. For so long this year a Cy Young-worthy starter with untouchable stuff, Bauer was reduced to pieces over the course of three relief appearances. Bauer walked out of the bullpen in each game and logged 4 innings in total, but gave up 7 hits and 3 earned runs. He saved the worst until last.

In the seventh inning with a narrow 2-1 lead, Bauer made an errant pickoff attempt that allowed Houston's Tony Kemp to reach second, and he later scored on a Jose Altuve grounder to tie the game at 2-2. Alex Bregman proceeded to chop a pitch back to the mound, where Bauer attempted to start the inning-ending double play, but his throw to Lindor at second base was wild, pulling the shortstop away from the bag, resulting in Bauer's second error of the inning and no outs on the play. The bases were then loaded to keep a double play opportunity alive but a 95-mph fastball way above the zone was pounced on by Marwin Gonzalez for a double that plated two more runners. It put the Astros ahead 4-2, and the game beyond the Indians' reach. A 6-run eighth inning meltdown by the rest of the bullpen put the final nail in the Tribe's 2018 coffin.

Where do the Indians go now? One thing for certain is some significant roster turnover in the near future, as a number of key players become free agents this month. I will be paying close attention this winter to the club's activity but for the next few weeks, I'll enjoy the rest of the playoffs, sad in the thought of what might have been.

Thanks for reading this season.

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

I was living in Harlem.

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

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

We always said our meeting was destined.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We were one.

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

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

We had so many things in common.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Get up and run!

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

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

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

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

          Elections 2018: Putting food at the forefront      Cache   Translate Page      
Forum event food

Food doesn’t often play a central role in electoral politics, but in California’s Assembly District 15, a recent candidate forum entitled “Food in the 15th” put food and farming issues at the forefront of a hotly contested race for state Assembly. 200 people attended the forum to hear from Buffy Wicks and Jovanka Beckles, both Democrats, on issues ranging from food access to agriculture’s impact on the environment.

Candidates engage on food policy

The forum was moderated by Nina Ichikawa of the Berkeley Food Institute, who began the conversation by asking the candidates how they would fight hunger and support programs like CalFresh (California’s version of SNAP). Other questions touched on important food system issues including labor, the environment, and soda taxes. The candidates acknowledged the huge role that the state plays in producing the nation’s food and the importance of a healthy regional food system in their urban district.

Wicks called for more small farmers to be “front and center in all of our policy decisions that impact farmers” and said she would support implementation of the Farmer Equity Act of 2017, as well as expansion of farmer technical assistance, the California Nutrition Incentive Program, and access to capital. Beckles also promised to heed the recommendations of farmers of color in the Farmer Equity Act and said she would support “land trusts to empower our small farmers because public land should belong to the people.”

A multi-sector collaboration

The forum was the first of its kind for the district and was made possible by a diverse multi-sector collaboration. The event’s hosts — the California Food and Farming Network, Alameda County Community Food Bank, the Center for Food, Faith and Justice, the Ecology Center, Oakland Food Policy Council, and Urban Tilth — as well as the 16 supporting organizations, PAN included, recognized the importance of uniting their efforts, acknowledging that the food system impacts every District 15 resident, but currently receives too little attention in the state’s Legislature. In accordance with the California Food and Farming Network’s broader efforts to increase knowledge about and accountability to the interests striving to improve the food and farming system, Food in the 15th was an opportunity to have the District’s future Assemblymember engage with important and specific food and farming issues often overlooked in state politics.

As Doria Robinson, Executive Director of Urban Tilth, said while welcoming the crowd to her hometown of Richmond, “So often, people take food for granted, but it plays into so many crises we’re facing every day, such as workers’ rights and climate change.” PAN is proud to be part of a broad coalition working to make food matter in the 2018 elections and hopes that whether Beckles or Wicks wins the Assembly seat, we’ll have a food and farming champion in Sacramento.

@ llpec Yes, I recall. I thought it was a pretty good idea when you brought it up. The problem (among many), that I believe ML mentioned at the time is that (1) There is already a campus in east Oakland, although it is in the hills of east Oakland, and (2) moving Laney or Alameda campuses will be more difficult to pull off politically then actually getting it done on the Parelta site without asking anyone to move at all. The Laney campus serves downtown/china town. west Oakland, and north Oakland (they once had a campus), as well as parts of lower east Oakland, it’s just no way you’re going to get the okay to move all those students, many of which are low income that far to east Oakland, even if it’s a totally donated brand new campus. It’s just too much to ask, unfortunately.

          Oakland diocese to release names of clergy credibly accused of sex abuse      Cache   Translate Page      

Oakland, Calif., Oct 9, 2018 / 06:01 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Bishop Michael Barber of Oakland has announced that the diocese will release the names of all clerics credibly accused of the sexual abuse of a minor.

“I hope and pray the publication of these names will help the innocent survivors and their families in their journey to wholeness and healing,” he wrote in a letter dated Oct. 2 and released Oct. 7.

The list will include the names of diocesan and religious priests, as well as extern priests. Anticipated to be released in roughly 45 days, the list is meant to be as accurate as possible, the bishop said, noting it will take some time to verify information on international and religious priests.

Aformer FBI official known for advocacy for justice in clercy sex abuse, Dr. Kathleen McChesney, will
assist in the review of clergy files and the audit of the diocese's process. Once the list is published, McChesney and her associates will fully review the files “to ensure our list is as accurate as possible,” Bishop Barber said. He said this second review will not be completed before Jan. 1, 2019.
 
Bishop Barber expressed hope that this list would help purify the Church and create a transparent environment.

“This is the latest step in the ongoing commitment of the Diocese of Oakland to stop the scourge of sexual abuse of minors and vulnerable adults,” he wrote.

“This public accountability will allow you and others in our community to see we are keeping our promises. We have nothing to hide. It is the right thing to do.”

The bishop said the Diocese of Oakland has continually improved its accountability process, “utilizing background checks and mandatory safe environment training for all church employees and volunteers.” He also said the diocese welcomes regular audits from outside firms to guarantee all parishes and schools are compliant.

Bishop Barber expressed support for the mutual support group, No More Secrets Group, which has been meeting in the diocese since 2002, helping adult survivors through sexual abuses that occurred in childhood.

If anyone is aware of sexual misconduct by a clergy member or employee of the diocese, he asked them to make a report to the authorities or Stephen Wilcox, chancellor and victims assistance coordinator for the diocese.

“I realize other victims may step forward with new information. Any accusation will be fully investigated by our independent Diocesan Review Board. We intend to update our list as we receive new information.”

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.

Quote: "Preventing an extra single degree of heat could make a life-or-death difference in the next few decades for multitudes of people and ecosystems on this fast-warming planet, an international panel of scientists reported Sunday. But they provide little hope the world will rise to the challenge."

Note: Preventing that much warming is impossible. Even if every power plant and car were scrapped and every single human being blew their brains out, today, the methane now spewing from the permafrost and the seas in the Arctic would cause waaaay more than that much warming through unstoppable feedbacks that are already in progress and escalating rapidly. So their hearts are in the right place - and I presume they also don't wanna die - but realistically, logically, they're seeking a goal that's not possible. The best we can do is slow down our extinction, and even then not by much, and that's assuming we were even seriously making the effort to slow our demise, and we are, if anything, working to HASTEN our extermination. Pursuing the recommended goals would help postpone - not avoid - human extinction, but hey, the more postponing we can do the better if you're one of those wanna-stay-alive types...

El 16 de octubre inicia una nueva temporada de NBA, y sus vigentes campeones, Golden State Warriors, buscarán consagrarse otra vez más tras haberlo logrado en tres de las últimas cuatro finales. Todas ante Cleveland Cavaliers de LeBron James.

A los últimos campeones Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green y Klay Thompson se les sumó un nuevo refuerzo: DeMarcus Cousins. Con la llegada del ala-pivot proveniente desde Nueva Orleans, Golden State formó un quinteto de jugadores All Star, lo que podría garantizarles el anillo incluso antes que empiece la temporada.

Aún así no todas son rosas para el equipo de la bahía: sufrieron una inesperada derrota en pretemporada ante Phoenix Suns, equipo que finalizó último en la Conferencia Oeste y en la tabla general de la temporada anterior, y que recientemente despidió a su General Manager. Los dirigidos por Kerr (quién se fue expulsado tras protestar una falta) presentaron una plantilla mixta en la que sólo Curry y Durant estuvieron concentrados.

Los Suns, por su parte, contaron con una estelar actuación de DeAndre Ayton, el numero 1 del último Draft. El pivot bahameño, quién competirá por el reconocimiento de Rookie Of The Year, se lució con 18 puntos ( 7 de campo y 4 de tiro libre), siete rebotes, dos asistencias, dos robos y un tapón. Fue la clave del equipo de Arizona para sacar amplia ventaja en el primer y tercer cuarto y así sellar la victoria ante los últimos campeones en su propio estadio.

Lets see... the city is on the hook for $1,200,000 plus $1,000,000, for a total of $2,200,000.
Desley is asked to pay only $75,000 for beating a senior citizen.
So now, to "kick off" her re-election campaign, Desley Brooks decides to file a lawsuit against the city (the citizens), after already costing the city (citizens) over TWO MILLION DOLLARS...
By all means Oakland citizens, bend over and take it.... in the pocket book, while you vote to re-elect this excellent council member.
Allow her to stay in office another 4 years to build up her lucrative pension.
Can you imagine any other city getting kicked in the gut and then being asked to vote the culprit back into office.

Elaine Brown wanted to build affordable apartment buildings for tenants.

Desley Brooks wanted luxury single family homes. She wanted them so bad, she got in a fist fight about it and cost the city $2.2M, which blows a pretty dang big hole in the city budget, which will almost certainly be backfilled with our already scarce affordable housing money.

          Oakland diocese to release names of clergy credibly accused of sex abuse      Cache   Translate Page      

Oakland, Calif., Oct 9, 2018 / 06:01 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Bishop Michael Barber of Oakland has announced that the diocese will release the names of all clerics credibly accused of the sexual abuse of a minor.

“I hope and pray the publication of these names will help the innocent survivors and their families in their journey to wholeness and healing,” he wrote in a letter dated Oct. 2 and released Oct. 7.

The list will include the names of diocesan and religious priests, as well as extern priests. Anticipated to be released in roughly 45 days, the list is meant to be as accurate as possible, the bishop said, noting it will take some time to verify information on international and religious priests.

Aformer FBI official known for advocacy for justice in clercy sex abuse, Dr. Kathleen McChesney, will
assist in the review of clergy files and the audit of the diocese's process. Once the list is published, McChesney and her associates will fully review the files “to ensure our list is as accurate as possible,” Bishop Barber said. He said this second review will not be completed before Jan. 1, 2019.
 
Bishop Barber expressed hope that this list would help purify the Church and create a transparent environment.

“This is the latest step in the ongoing commitment of the Diocese of Oakland to stop the scourge of sexual abuse of minors and vulnerable adults,” he wrote.

“This public accountability will allow you and others in our community to see we are keeping our promises. We have nothing to hide. It is the right thing to do.”

The bishop said the Diocese of Oakland has continually improved its accountability process, “utilizing background checks and mandatory safe environment training for all church employees and volunteers.” He also said the diocese welcomes regular audits from outside firms to guarantee all parishes and schools are compliant.

Bishop Barber expressed support for the mutual support group, No More Secrets Group, which has been meeting in the diocese since 2002, helping adult survivors through sexual abuses that occurred in childhood.

If anyone is aware of sexual misconduct by a clergy member or employee of the diocese, he asked them to make a report to the authorities or Stephen Wilcox, chancellor and victims assistance coordinator for the diocese.

“I realize other victims may step forward with new information. Any accusation will be fully investigated by our independent Diocesan Review Board. We intend to update our list as we receive new information.”

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

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

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

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

Industrial hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products. Commercially it has been refined into paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, cosmetics, nutritional supplements and animal feed. Although industrial hemp and the cannabis drug, marijuana are both members of the Cannabis sativa species, they have distinctive biochemical compositions and uses.

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

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

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

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

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

FAQ's:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

-IS Pur 7 TESTED FOR QUALITY AND INGREDIENT PURITY?

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

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

Desley is asked to pay only $75,000 for beating a senior citizen.
So now, to "kick off" her re-election campaign, Desley Brooks decides to file a lawsuit against the city (the citizens), after already costing the city (citizens) over TWO MILLION DOLLARS...
By all means Oakland citizens, bend over and take it.... in the pocket book, while you vote to re-elect this excellent council member.
Allow her to stay in office another 4 years to build up her lucrative pension.
Can you imagine any other city getting kicked in the gut and then being asked to vote the culprit back into office.

Elaine Brown wanted to build affordable apartment buildings for tenants.

Desley Brooks wanted luxury single family homes. She wanted them so bad, she got in a fist fight about it and cost the city $2.2M, which blows a pretty dang big hole in the city budget, which will almost certainly be backfilled with our already scarce affordable housing money.

          The spreading hotel strike lands in Boston      Cache   Translate Page      

Ryan Roche reports from the picket lines in Boston as UNITE HERE strikes targeting the Marriott chain hit eight cities stretching from one side of the country to the other.

BOSTON IS one of the places leading the way as the successful hotel strike in Chicago spread to a total of eight new U.S. cities this month.

Some 1,800 members of UNITE HERE Local 26 in Boston are beginning the second week of a strike at seven of the city’s most prominent hotels, all owned by Marriott. This is the first major hotel strike in Boston’s history and the first walkout by Local 26 since Harvard University dining hall workers struck for over three weeks in October 2016.

Only San Francisco has more hotel workers among the 7,700 UNITE HERE members who are now on strike in this latest wave of battles targeting the Marriott chain. There are also strikes in Oahu and Maui in Hawaii, San Diego, Detroit, Oakland and San Jose.

“Marriott has forced this strike,” said UNITE HERE Local 26 President Brian Lang. “After five years of record profits and more than six months of contract talks, Marriott still doesn’t get it. It’s our work that creates the great experience for the hotel guests. We are the reason that they keep coming back. Our demand is modest and fair: One job should be enough.”

Striking hotel workers walk the picket line in Boston

Last month, an overwhelming 96 percent of UNITE HERE Local 26 members voted to authorize a strike in order to win their demands.

Union members are taking shifts to keep up pickets outside all seven hotels between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. every day. The pickets are noisy and energetic, and morale is high.


DOZENS OF workers were picketing outside the Boston Ritz Carlton last Saturday, where one worker said: “I don’t care if I have to be the last person out here on this picket line — I’m going to keep on fighting until we win what we deserve.”

The picketers were joined that day by members of the International Socialist Organization, almost 30 employees from University of Massachusetts-Boston, and even a tourist who heard the strike was happening and sought out a picket line to show her support.

People passing by raised fists and called out “I’m with you!” — and from passing cars, trucks and ambulances, drivers and passengers cheered in support and honked their horns.

Joe, a hotel restaurant server, talked about the main issues in the strike as he picketed outside the Ritz Carlton: “The biggest issue for me is fighting for better health benefits for retirees, as well as to support the other workers here. They’re fighting for better wages and benefits, and fighting against having to do two jobs for one paycheck due to staffing cuts.”

Joe also mentioned the solidarity that strikers have received. “The workers who deliver the food to the restaurant, they’re with Teamsters Local 25, and they’re not making any deliveries,” he said. “Hotel workers at the Taj, the Westin, the Sheraton and other Marriotts have been really supportive and given us a lot of support on the picket.”

Jean Exandus, a 72-year-old chef in the hotel’s kitchen, has been working for the Ritz Carlton for 25 years. He told us:

Our contract isn’t fair. Sometimes, there are only two people working in our department, and they still want us to run the whole kitchen. We’re asking for higher pay. I’m an old man, I’m almost 73 years old, so I’m fighting for better insurance and better benefits. Even when I’m sick, I still have to come to work, because I can’t use my health insurance if I take time off.

I have bills to pay. I need my job, I love my job, so I need to go back to work. But we need to get good benefits to make that happen. That’s the right way.


MARRIOTT HAS had record profits for the past five years, but the workers who make those profits possible are facing cuts at every turn. Valter Mucaj, who has worked for the Ritz Carlton for over four years, described the struggle for workers:

My wife and I have to stagger our work schedules so we can take care of our kids and share a subway pass. I’m on strike so I can afford to go on living in Boston, and I don’t have to move out of the city. Working life is hard. I don’t mind working, but the only thing is that I need to support my family and my kids. I’m going to fight until the last day. I’m not going back without a contact.

Valter said he had political reasons for being on the picket line, too:

This isn’t an isolated struggle. Especially with Trump’s tax breaks, the rich keep getting richer, and the poor keep getting poorer. They get richer because we’re getting poorer. We’re able to fight today because our grandparents fought for the eight-hour day and for our future, so now we fight for the future, too.

People on the picket line have been following news of the strikes in Chicago, where workers at 26 hotels walked off the job last month, along with the plans for strike action at Marriotts in other cities.

The strikers here are keenly aware that all but two Chicago hotels have settled with the union, including hotels owned by Marriott. This has hardened their resolve on the picket line.

“I know they’re already settling with workers in Chicago, so why won’t they just settle with us here?” one worker asked. “It’s the same company. They have enough money to treat us fairly, so why are they making us strike and picket in order to get what we deserve?”


ON MONDAY, the picket lines were going strong at the Ritz Carlton, and workers became even more determined when they got the news that UNITE HERE members were walking off the job in other cities.

Marriott reportedly contacted UNITE HERE officials in Boston to schedule a meeting with a federal mediator for Tuesday, a sign that the picket lines are working and cutting into Marriott’s profits. “They wouldn’t be reaching out to us at all if we weren’t winning,” said Esmera, a housekeeper at the Ritz Carlton. “I’m going to be here on strike until every single one of our demands is met. Not one, not two, but the whole list!”

Shaq, a server in the Ritz Carlton’s restaurant, said he’s striking for his own family, but also for his co-workers, especially the housekeepers:

That’s backbreaking work. They’re expected to completely clean a room to luxury hotel standards every 30 minutes. Some of these workers are older, in severe pain because this work takes a toll on their health, and they still have to come to work to support their families...

When people ask us where we work, we’re proud to say, “At the Ritz Carlton,” because we know how hard we work. We pride ourselves on giving our guests that little bit extra to make their visit perfect. But management isn’t willing to do that little bit extra for us.

We just want our fair share — that’s it. This is one of the richest hotel companies in the world, and they can’t give us chump change for decent insurance? This money means so little to them...How do they expect us to survive?”

Other unions in Boston have been mobilizing members to join the picket lines and show their solidarity. The Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) expressed support for the strike after several players for the New York Yankees were filmed crossing the picket line to check into a Marriott hotel.

“From what we understand, these workers have been trying to negotiate a fair contract for more than six months,” the MLBPA said. “They deserve to be heard and deserve our support.”

This determined struggle and the outpouring of struggle and solidarity from all over the country is pointing the way forward for how our side can fight back and win.

As one striking worker pointed out: “Trump is a hotel owner, just like the people we’re fighting right now for fair pay. It’s all the same fight. And we need to win.”

          Oakland diocese to release names of clergy credibly accused of sex abuse      Cache   Translate Page      

Oakland, Calif., Oct 9, 2018 / 06:01 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Bishop Michael Barber of Oakland has announced that the diocese will release the names of all clerics credibly accused of the sexual abuse of a minor.

“I hope and pray the publication of these names will help the innocent survivors and their families in their journey to wholeness and healing,” he wrote in a letter dated Oct. 2 and released Oct. 7.

The list will include the names of diocesan and religious priests, as well as extern priests. Anticipated to be released in roughly 45 days, the list is meant to be as accurate as possible, the bishop said, noting it will take some time to verify information on international and religious priests.

Aformer FBI official known for advocacy for justice in clercy sex abuse, Dr. Kathleen McChesney, will
assist in the review of clergy files and the audit of the diocese's process. Once the list is published, McChesney and her associates will fully review the files “to ensure our list is as accurate as possible,” Bishop Barber said. He said this second review will not be completed before Jan. 1, 2019.
 
Bishop Barber expressed hope that this list would help purify the Church and create a transparent environment.

“This is the latest step in the ongoing commitment of the Diocese of Oakland to stop the scourge of sexual abuse of minors and vulnerable adults,” he wrote.

“This public accountability will allow you and others in our community to see we are keeping our promises. We have nothing to hide. It is the right thing to do.”

The bishop said the Diocese of Oakland has continually improved its accountability process, “utilizing background checks and mandatory safe environment training for all church employees and volunteers.” He also said the diocese welcomes regular audits from outside firms to guarantee all parishes and schools are compliant.

Bishop Barber expressed support for the mutual support group, No More Secrets Group, which has been meeting in the diocese since 2002, helping adult survivors through sexual abuses that occurred in childhood.

If anyone is aware of sexual misconduct by a clergy member or employee of the diocese, he asked them to make a report to the authorities or Stephen Wilcox, chancellor and victims assistance coordinator for the diocese.

“I realize other victims may step forward with new information. Any accusation will be fully investigated by our independent Diocesan Review Board. We intend to update our list as we receive new information.”

Q&A: Hyperconvergence Delivers Speed and Scalability to Oakland University eli.zimmerman_9856 Tue, 10/09/2018 - 13:33

Like many in higher education, Mariusz Nowak has to figure out how to do more with less. 

“With today’s climate in education — there’s this huge push toward reduction of tuition, and almost every dollar counts — we’ve been looking for more cost-saving initiatives,” says Nowak, director of infrastructure services at Oakland University in Rochester, Mich.

When he reviewed the university’s IT portfolio over the years, one cost jumped out: storage, both the systems and the human resources required to keep pace with their increasing complexities.

To reduce those costs and simplify the environment, Nowak and his team transitioned to a hyperconverged infrastructure consisting of VMware’s vSphere, vSAN and vRealize Suite across two redundant data centers on the north and south ends of campus. EdTech recently spoke with Nowak about the project.

MORE FROM EDTECH: Check out how colleges are streamlining IT through hyperconverged data centers!

EDTECH: What made you consider HCI? 

NOWAK: We used to be a traditional shop with traditional storage and VMware’s VSphere virtualization. When vSAN was announced in 2014, it was a perfect fit because it could simplify our environment. We could focus on one hardware vendor, one software vendor, reduce the complexity and significantly reduce the cost of the entire solution.

Plus, we could introduce a lot of new features like encryption, which was not possible before because encrypted drives are so expensive. We could add additional features like stretched cluster, which was a big improvement over what we had before. We had a typical data center single cluster with just simple backup. Now we can actually serve our customers — students and faculty — from two data centers on the campus.

We’re also running vRealize, which helps us with monitoring and data analysis and with the operation of the environment. 

And we replaced the backup infrastructure at the same time. We used to use tape backups, but this winter, we started moving our offsite copies to Amazon Web Services. It’s in progress now. Veeam software interfaces with AWS, so the process is entirely automated

EDTECH: What was your timeline for the project? 

NOWAK: We’ve been VMware customers since the early days — 13 years or so. We started with probably 25 virtual servers in 2005. Now I would say we are about 95 percent virtualized. Our footprint is about 400 virtual servers running on our environment.

          5 Great Foodie Dates in Oakland      Cache   Translate Page      

Having moved from The City to The Town 2 years ago, I’ve been determined to find adventures in the East Bay which are unique to this area and make me miss San Francisco just a little bit less. My favorite partner in crime for adventuring in the East Bay is my boyfriend. He owns a local bakery so (obviously) our dates center around the best places to eat in Oakland and the East Bay.

The New Orleans Saints have placed tight end Michael Hoomanawanui and veteran running back Shane Vereen on injured reserve [url=http://www.authenticsnewyorkjets.com/cheap-sam-darnold-jersey]Sam Darnold Color Rush Jersey[/url] , and cut veteran reserve quarterback Tom Savage while trimming their roster down to the regular-season maximum. The Saints, who announced the moves Saturday, also traded defensive tackle Devaroe Lawrence to Cleveland for "future considerations" and waived four draft choices from the past two years. The 2018 draft choices waived were: offensive tackle Rick Leonard, a fourth rounder out of Florida State; defensive back Natrell Jamerson, a fifth-rounder out of Wisconsin; and defensive back Kamrin Moore, a sixth-rounder out of Boston College. Defensive end Al-Quaddin Muhammad, a 2017 sixth-rounder out of Miami, also was waived. Younger players who remain on the 53-player roster for now include second-year tight end Dan Arnold [url=http://www.officialhockeypanthersshop.com/authentic-adidas-vincent-trocheck-jersey]Vincent Trocheck Jersey[/url] , second-year offensive lineman Cameron Tom, and running back Boston Scott, a 2018 sixth-round pick out of Louisiana Tech. Arnold, a 6-foot-6 converted receiver out of Wisconsin-Platteville, is entering his second pro season after spending last year on injured reserve. The 5-foot-6, 203-pound Scott, who grew up in the New Orleans area, showed promise as a runner and return man during the preseason. He joins the team at a time when it needs running back depth due to Mark Ingram's four-game suspension to start the season because of the Pro Bowler's positive test for a banned substance. One of Scott's chief competitors for a role in the return game was veteran receiver Brandon Tate [url=http://www.officialflyersproshop.com/authentic-adidas-shayne-gostisbehere-jersey]Adidas Shayne Gostisbehere Jersey[/url] , who was among the Saints' final cuts. Another veteran receiver let go was Michael Floyd, who was brought in near the beginning of training camp as he tries to bounce back from a series of off-the-field setbacks that derailed his once-promising career with Arizona. New Orleans is back to having just one defensive back named Marcus Williams on the roster after cutting the veteran cornerback by that name only weeks after signing him as a free agent. The former New York Jet and Houston Texan intercepted a pass for a touchdown during the Saints' preseason victory over the Chargers in Los Angeles, but that wasn't enough to keep him around. The younger Marcus Williams, a 2017 second-round draft choice out of Utah, is projected to start at free safety as he seeks to bury bad memories of his missed tackle of Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs on the last play of last season's playoff loss in Minnesota. The Saints also parted ways with their 2015 second-round pick, Hau'oli Kikaha, an edge pass rusher who showed promise as a rookie but who missed the 2016 season after tearing his left anterior cruciate ligament for the third time. He came back from that injury to make the team last season but struggled to work his way into the regular playing rotation and was a healthy scratch several times. Other players cut by the Saints were: linebackers Jayrone Elliott, KeShun Freeman and Colton Jumper; defensive tackles Jay Bromley [url=http://www.authenticsdallascowboys.com/cheap-michael-gallup-jersey]Michael Gallup Color Rush Jersey[/url] , Woodrow Hamilton and Henry Mondeaux; defensive ends Alex Jenkins and George Johnson; defensive backs Sharrod Neasman, Linden Stephens and Robert Nelson; receivers Tanner McAvoy and Keith Kirkwood; offensive linemen Josh LeRibeus, Nate Wozniak, Michael Ola, Andrew Tiller, Landon Turner and Don Barclay; tight ends Garrett Griffin, John Phillips and Deon Yelder; quarterback J.T. Barrett; and running back Jonathan Williams. Players cut by New Orleans could potentially wind up on the club's 10-player practice squad. ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders have signed free agent cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. The Raiders added another veteran to their secondary on Thursday and cut 2017 second-round pick Obi Melifonwu to make room. Rodgers-Cromartie made the Pro Bowl in 2009 and ’15 and was a second-team All-Pro selection in 2016. He has played 153 games over 10 seasons with Arizona [url=http://www.neworleanssaintsteamonline.com/drew-brees-jersey]Womens Drew Brees Jersey[/url] , Philadelphia, Denver and the past four years with the Giants. He has 30 career interceptions, including six returned for touchdowns, and 144 passes defensed. Melifonwu has struggled to stay healthy with knee and hip injuries. He played five games as a rookie and has been sidelined most of this training camp. He was waived with an injured designation.

One of Scott's chief competitors for a role in the return game was veteran receiver Brandon Tate [url=http://www.officialflyersproshop.com/authentic-adidas-shayne-gostisbehere-jersey]Adidas Shayne Gostisbehere Jersey[/url] , who was among the Saints' final cuts. Another veteran receiver let go was Michael Floyd, who was brought in near the beginning of training camp as he tries to bounce back from a series of off-the-field setbacks that derailed his once-promising career with Arizona. New Orleans is back to having just one defensive back named Marcus Williams on the roster after cutting the veteran cornerback by that name only weeks after signing him as a free agent. The former New York Jet and Houston Texan intercepted a pass for a touchdown during the Saints' preseason victory over the Chargers in Los Angeles, but that wasn't enough to keep him around. The younger Marcus Williams, a 2017 second-round draft choice out of Utah, is projected to start at free safety as he seeks to bury bad memories of his missed tackle of Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs on the last play of last season's playoff loss in Minnesota. The Saints also parted ways with their 2015 second-round pick, Hau'oli Kikaha, an edge pass rusher who showed promise as a rookie but who missed the 2016 season after tearing his left anterior cruciate ligament for the third time. He came back from that injury to make the team last season but struggled to work his way into the regular playing rotation and was a healthy scratch several times. Other players cut by the Saints were: linebackers Jayrone Elliott, KeShun Freeman and Colton Jumper; defensive tackles Jay Bromley [url=http://www.authenticsdallascowboys.com/cheap-michael-gallup-jersey]Michael Gallup Color Rush Jersey[/url] , Woodrow Hamilton and Henry Mondeaux; defensive ends Alex Jenkins and George Johnson; defensive backs Sharrod Neasman, Linden Stephens and Robert Nelson; receivers Tanner McAvoy and Keith Kirkwood; offensive linemen Josh LeRibeus, Nate Wozniak, Michael Ola, Andrew Tiller, Landon Turner and Don Barclay; tight ends Garrett Griffin, John Phillips and Deon Yelder; quarterback J.T. Barrett; and running back Jonathan Williams. Players cut by New Orleans could potentially wind up on the club's 10-player practice squad. ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders have signed free agent cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. The Raiders added another veteran to their secondary on Thursday and cut 2017 second-round pick Obi Melifonwu to make room. Rodgers-Cromartie made the Pro Bowl in 2009 and ’15 and was a second-team All-Pro selection in 2016. He has played 153 games over 10 seasons with Arizona [url=http://www.neworleanssaintsteamonline.com/drew-brees-jersey]Womens Drew Brees Jersey[/url] , Philadelphia, Denver and the past four years with the Giants. He has 30 career interceptions, including six returned for touchdowns, and 144 passes defensed. Melifonwu has struggled to stay healthy with knee and hip injuries. He played five games as a rookie and has been sidelined most of this training camp. He was waived with an injured designation.

The New Orleans Saints have placed tight end Michael Hoomanawanui and veteran running back Shane Vereen on injured reserve [url=http://www.authenticsnewyorkjets.com/cheap-sam-darnold-jersey]Sam Darnold Color Rush Jersey[/url] , and cut veteran reserve quarterback Tom Savage while trimming their roster down to the regular-season maximum. The Saints, who announced the moves Saturday, also traded defensive tackle Devaroe Lawrence to Cleveland for "future considerations" and waived four draft choices from the past two years. The 2018 draft choices waived were: offensive tackle Rick Leonard, a fourth rounder out of Florida State; defensive back Natrell Jamerson, a fifth-rounder out of Wisconsin; and defensive back Kamrin Moore, a sixth-rounder out of Boston College. Defensive end Al-Quaddin Muhammad, a 2017 sixth-rounder out of Miami, also was waived.

          Worlds of Sound: Bells Atlas Explores New Musical Frontiers      Cache   Translate Page      
Bells Atlas will play Neurolux in Boise on Tuesday, Oct. 16. Bells Atlas is, in bassist Doug Stuart's words, a "very democratic band." Each of its members—Stuart, lead singer Sandra Lawson-Ndu, guitarist Derek Barber, drummer Geneva Harrison and keyboardist Steve Blum—take an active role in creating songs. Stuart feels that this helps keep their music fresh. "It's always happened naturally for us," he told Boise Weekly, "because the process is never really limited to one person or even two people. And I think because of that, and because we're all pretty diplomatic, we end up surprising ourselves." The Oakland, California-based band's latest release, Salt and Soap (Tender Loving Empire, 2018), is a good case in point. The foundation for the EP's four tracks came from recordings on Harrison's phone. "There was a period of time where Geneva traveled to New York for a few months to do a gig," Stuart explained. "We hadn't been writing too much prior to that—we'd just come out of a cycle of playing a lot of live shows. Anyway, before she left, she was like, 'Here's this folder of a bunch of beats that I just played in my practice space. If you guys feel uninspired, you should check 'em out.'" Harrison's bandmates found inspiration in more than her angular, funky drum beats. "The phone recording itself was kind of inspiring," Stuart said, "because it gave us this grainy, distorted, interesting sound on top of her unique playing. ... Sandra and I started a handful of [songs] from there. And then when [Harrison] got back from her gig, she got in on the process and Derek was roped in throughout. It was a new process for us for sure." Listeners and critics have taken note of Bells Atlas' unique blend of R&B, African music, pop and psychedelia. Afropunk.com, the online hub of the festival and cultural movement of the same name, praised the band's music as "a sumptuous feast for the ears." Impose declared that "no two-bit adjectives can contain their infectious sound, [which] draws influences from all corners and unexpected places the world over." Boise music fans can hear that unique sound on Tuesday, Oct. 16, when Bells Atlas plays Neurolux. Local electronica act Up is the Down is the will open. When Stuart and Lawson-Ndu formed the group in 2011, they called it simply "Bells." Recruiting Harrison and Barber, they played under that name for almost two years before they discovered a problem.…

          London calling: Seahawks set for overseas adventure      Cache   Translate Page      

RENTON, Wash. – Going overseas to play a regular-season game for the first time in franchise history, the Seattle Seahawks did as expected for their trip to England – looking at studies, analyzing options of when to leave and when to arrive and how to keep the week as normal as possible.

Added into that mix of planning was coach Pete Carroll reaching out to an old friend who became accustomed to making the trip to London on a yearly basis.

Carroll said he spoke with former Jacksonville coach and current Los Angeles Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley extensively about how to manage the trip. Bradley made the journey once a year for his four seasons as the Jaguars’ head coach, a job he got after four seasons as the Seahawks’ defensive coordinator under Carroll.

Carroll said the message Bradley relayed was making sure the distractions didn’t become overwhelming.

“They had made it through the difficulties really and they had become so familiar,” Carroll said. “It was making sure that everyone was focused and not distracted by the trip and the event of being in a foreign country and all that kind of stuff. Just so there was a process of normal focus going into game time, they were concerned about that always.”

Seattle will practice on Wednesday at home before packing up and heading to the airport for a roughly nine-hour flight that’s scheduled to land in London at midday Thursday. The Seahawks are leaving a day earlier than their opponent, the Oakland Raiders, who plan to depart post-practice on Thursday from the Bay Area.

Carroll compared the situation to a bowl game like he experienced during his time coaching at Southern California. Except instead of spending a week in one place preparing, the Seahawks will have about 72 hours on the ground in England leading up to kickoff.

“We have enough days to turn it around,” Carroll said. “There’s a lot of different ways people have done it – go over at the first of the week or wait as long as they can – and we have chosen our options after a long study and we feel really good about what we’re doing. We should be OK. We’ll be fine.”

Seattle started asking its players to begin altering their sleep schedules following Sunday’s 33-31 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the hopes that when they board their flight at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Wednesday night, they’ll be ready to get a little bit of sleep on the plane.

The players will need it because once they land in London, the Seahawks intend on holding a practice shortly after arriving. It’s partly to make sure they’re staying with the normal routine of game preparation and partly to help keep the players awake in the hope they’ll get into a regular sleeping pattern on their first night abroad.

“I’m gonna try to sleep. Apparently right when we land, about an hour and a half later we have practice,” wide receiver Doug Baldwin said. “They’re trying to keep us up, trying to get our internal clocks ready for this game. So hopefully sleep.”

Sleep has been a valuable commodity in recent days for offensive lineman J.R. Sweezy, whose wife gave birth to the couple’s second child late last week. Sweezy said he was looking forward to the chance to play in London, but he didn’t like the idea of being away from home for five days.

“That’s going to be rough. It’s unfortunate but it’s got to be done,” he said.

NOTES: Carroll said LB K.J. Wright (knee) will not play in London, meaning the earliest he’ll make his season debut is Week 8 at Detroit. Wright had what the team called minor knee surgery following Seattle’s third preseason game but now will have missed more than one-third of the season. Carroll sounded optimistic Wright will be able to play when Seattle returns from its bye. … DE Rasheem Green (ankle) will also miss Sunday’s game. Green has been inactive the past two games.

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

I was living in Harlem.

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

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

We always said our meeting was destined.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We were one.

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

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

We had so many things in common.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Get up and run!

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

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

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

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

          2018 NFL Power Rankings Week 6: Rams, Chiefs still holding top spots       Cache   Translate Page      

1. Los Angeles Rams (5-0) Def. Seattle 33-31. Last Week: 1

This week it was Todd Gurley’s turn to shine on offense. The running back had three touchdowns but it was Jared Goff who converted a fourth-and-one attempt inside the Rams own territory to seal the win and allow them to run out the clock. Going forward, we'll have to wait and see how concussions suffered by wide receiver Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks affect this offense.

2. Kansas City Chiefs (5-0) Def. Jacksonville 30-14. Last Week: 2

Despite allowing 500 total yards, this was the Chiefs’ best defensive effort of the season. They had five sacks and five takeaways. Chris Jones even scored a defensive touchdown before being ejected from the game later. While the passing attack sputtered for the first time this season, the ground game looks to be perking up. Kareem Hunt has three scores in the last two games.

3. New Orleans Saints (4-1) Def. Washington 43-18. Last Week: 3

A blowout victory for the Saints was also a magical night for Drew Brees, who passed Peyton Manning to become the NFL’s all-time passing yardage leader in style. He did it on a 62-yard touchdown throw to rookie wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith. Brees now has 72,102 career yards and it’s easy to expect he’ll add a few thousand more to the record before hanging them up.

4. New England Patriots (3-2) Def. Indianapolis 38-24. Last Week: 8

Tom Brady’s 500th career touchdown pass was his first to Josh Gordon. Gordon’s first touchdown in New England was his second of 2018 after scoring just one time from 2014-2017. Brady, whose first pass of the night was a completion to Julian Edelman, freshly returned from suspension, now sits third all-time in touchdown throws with Brett Favre’s second-place mark (508) firmly in sight.

5. Cincinnati Bengals (4-1) Def. Miami 27-17. Last Week: 9

What a turnaround in Cincinnati! The Bengals salvaged a 17-0 deficit against the Dolphins and maintained the lead in their division thanks to Cleveland knocking off the Ravens. They have their first matchup in 2018 with the Steelers next, and it could set the tone for the AFC North for the rest of the season. Joe Mixon looked ready to return to a heavy load Sunday, with 22 carries for 93 yards in his return from injury.

6. Carolina Panthers (3-1) Def. NY Giants 33-31. Last Week: 5

Graham Gano hit a 63-yard field goal to beat the Giants as time expired and it was his fourth successful kick on four attempts Sunday. It's also tied for the second longest field goal in NFL history so, all-in-all, not a bad day. They've got Washington next as they try to keep pace with the red-hot Saints in the division.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2) Lost to Kansas City 30-14. Last Week: 4

Blake Bortles once again lit up the passing yards chart with 430, but it's way overshadowed by four interceptions including a pick-six, and a strip-sack, one of five Bortles takedowns on the day. That's how you lose when your star-studded defense gets the first two interceptions of Patrick Mahomes this season and contains the NFL's hottest offense.

8. Minnesota Vikings (2-2-1) Def. Philadelphia 23-21. Last Week: 15

The Vikings actually had some of their most success running the ball against the NFL's stouter run defense without Dalvin Cook. The real story here was their beleaguered defense, however, which returned a fumble 68 yards for a touchdown and held the Eagles to two-of-nine on third down.

9. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-2-1) Def. Atlanta 41-17. Last Week: 16

The Steelers look back on track after this one. The woeful defense showed up against one of the league's best offenses. They sacked Matt Ryan six times and ended Calvin Ridley's hot streak. Meanwhile James Conner followed some miserable outings with his best performance (185 total yards) and Antonio Brown broke out with two scores.

10. Chicago Bears (3-1) Bye. Last Week: 10

Coming out of Chicago’s bye, everyone will be watching to see how Mitchell Trubisky follows up his six-touchdown performance two weeks ago. Chicago will just be trying to maintain first place in the NFC North. They’ll be facing the reeling Dolphins as both teams try to get to four wins on the season.

11. Philadelphia Eagles (2-3) Lost to Minnesota 23-21. Last Week: 7

Penalties continued to plague the Eagles on Sunday including three for illegal formation. Doug Pederson decided not to let Jake Elliott, who beat the Giants on a 61-yard kick a year ago, try a 58-yard field goal in the fourth quarter, punting instead. The Vikings then hit their own 52-yard attempt to put the game out of reach.

12. Los Angeles Chargers (3-2) Def. Oakland 26-10. Last Week: 18

On a weekend full of quarterback milestones, Philip Rivers quietly completed his 59th 300-yard passing game while defeating the Raiders. His effort was needed on a day where Melvin Gordon had 58 yards and the Chargers averaged just 2.5 yards per carry on the ground.

13. Baltimore Ravens (3-2) Lost to Cleveland 12-9. Last Week: 11

This game was a low point for the Baltimore passing attack this season, with Joe Flacco throwing a costly interception and no touchdowns and Michael Crabtree dropping the potential game-winner. They fall to 1-2 in the division and have a game against the equally disappointing Tennessee Titans next.

14. Tennessee Titans (3-2) Lost to Buffalo 13-12. Last Week: 6

The Titans’ offensive struggles cost them dearly against Buffalo where a win would have given them a game lead over the Jaguars. 221 yards of offense may have even been enough to beat the Bills (who only managed 223 themselves) were it not accompanied by three turnovers and zero successful red zone trips.

15. Detroit Lions (2-3) Def. Green Bay 31-23. Last Week: 22

The Lions have looked both great and terrible this season, and Sunday they combined the two into one game. They took a 14-0 lead on two one-yard scores by LeGarrette Blount and made it 24-0 before being outscored 23-7 by the Packers in the second half. They were outgained 521-264, concerningly, and will need to figure out a new solution on the ground if Kerryon Johnson is hurt for any amount of time.

16. Washington (2-2) Lost to New Orleans 43-18. Last Week: 12

Washington had a whole bye week to prepare and ended up with that? Washington was always playing catch up to the Saints on Monday Night - they finished with just 18 carries for 39 yards - but they never looked close to catching them. Despite the loss, they remain in first place in their division thanks to the Cowboys, Giants, and Eagles all joining them in the ‘L’ column this week.

17. Green Bay Packers (2-2-1) Lost to Detroit 31-23. Last Week: 13

Green Bay's attempt at a second miraculous comeback a la their opening weekend victory over Chicago fell short. After falling behind 24-0 by halftime they scored the next 14 points but couldn't overcome four missed field goals by Mason Crosby, who finally connected from 41 yards out with two seconds remaining.

18. Miami Dolphins (3-2) Lost to Cincinnati 27-17. Last Week: 17

Dolphins fans can spend the week debating whether it was more crushing to be obliterated by the Patriots a week ago or give up 27 straight points after building a 17-0 lead against the Bengals Sunday. The team has to get ready for the Bears.

19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-2) Bye. Last Week: 19

The Buccaneers come off their bye looking to salvage what was an impressive and unexpected 2-0 start. But they'll be facing the equally desperate Falcons with both teams trying to stay in the divisional race.

20. Seattle Seahawks (2-3) Lost to LA Rams 33-31. Last Week: 24

The Seahawks looked like a ready-made target for the Rams defense in this one. That wasn't the case. They allowed just two sacks, didn't turn the ball over, and ran for 190 yards before finally giving up the goat in a game that was closer than many expected.

21. Houston Texans (2-3) Def. Dallas 19-16 (OT.) Last Week: 23

DeAndre Hopkins had 151 of 375 passing yards from Deshaun Watson and set up the game-winning field goal in overtime. It was Houston’s second straight overtime win after beginning the season 0-3. It was also their first victory over Dallas since 2002.

22. Atlanta Falcons (1-4) Lost to Pittsburgh 41-17. Last Week: 14

For all the Falcons’ talent their season is on the ropes after falling to 1-4. Their other losses this season have been close ones to quality opponents but this was a shellacking. Julio Jones, who entered the game as the NFL's leading receiver still hasn't scored a touchdown.

23. Dallas Cowboys (2-3) Lost to Houston 19-16 (OT.) Last Week: 21

The Cowboys struggled to maintain their identity against the Texans. Ezekiel Elliott was limited to 54 yards rushing on 2.7 yards an attempt and failed to convert third-and-one before the team failed to even try fourth-and-one.

24. Cleveland Browns (2-2-1) Def. Baltimore 12-9. Last Week: 28

The Browns just played their third overtime game of this young season and have moved to 1-1-1 in those games. Interestingly, rookie Nick Chubb's monster game a week ago, where he sprinted for 105 yards on just three carries, didn't lead to any increase in touches this week. The running back finished with just two yards on another three carries.

25. New York Jets (2-3) Def. Denver 34-16. Last Week: 30

Isaiah Crowell had the best rushing day in Jets history on just 15 carries. And his 219 yards were only part of a franchise second-best 323 for the team. Bilal Powell had 99 of his own and Sam Darnold added three touchdown passes. Is Crowell and Powell trademarked?

26. Denver Broncos (2-3) Lost to NY Jets 34-16. Last Week: 20

A year ago the problem for the Broncos’ defense was short fields. Not so Sunday, as they allowed scoring drives of 77, 77, 75, 54, and 93 yards. The offense needed to do better on its own short fields however: 436 yards shouldn’t translate into 16 points.

27. Buffalo Bills (2-3) Def. Tennessee 13-12. Last Week: 31

Josh Allen may have only had 82 yards passing, but he scrambled for the game's only score on a 14-yard touchdown. The Bills’ will be the first to tell you there are no ugly wins, especially in a season that already has this many ugly losses.

28. Indianapolis Colts (1-4) Lost to New England 38-24. Last Week: 25

The Colts were already struggling with injuries and lost more players against the Patriots. The one healthy spot is the most important, as Andrew Luck continued his successful return with his 28th consecutive game with a touchdown pass.

29. Oakland Raiders (1-4) Lost to LA Chargers 26-10. Last Week: 27

One week after recording their first win of 2018, the Raiders came back down to Earth. They continued to struggle to generate a pass rush, only sacking Philip Rivers once while allowing 333 passing yards.

30. New York Giants (1-4) Lost to Carolina 33-31. Last Week: 29

Sometimes Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley are too electric to be denied, as was the case on the 57-yard touchdown they connected through the air for in this one. It won't lead to many wins though.

31. Arizona Cardinals (1-4) Def. San Francisco 28-18. Last Week: 32

The Cardinals trailed for exactly one extra point attempt and kickoff in this one as two rookies: Josh Rosen and Christian Kirk combined for a 75-yard scoring strike on their first play.

32. San Francisco 49ers (1-4) Lost to Arizona 28-18. Last Week: 26

The Niners let turnovers defeat them against the Cardinals. Specifically, five turnovers in a game where they ran almost twice as many plays (92-49) as their opponents and did gain twice as many yards (447-220).

He spent six years in the minors, getting drafted away by the Minnesota Twins but was then sent back to Tampa.

          Chicago Bears 4/9 to make NFL Playoffs after shock 3-1 start      Cache   Translate Page      

The Chicago Bears are odds-on to reach the NFL Playoffs after a strong start to the season that has seen them win three of their first four games.

The Bears have not made the post-season since 2010, when they lost in the NFC Championship Game, and they have spent the past four years propping up the NFC North after winning just 19 of their 64 games.

That miserable run prompted the franchise to bring in highly-rated Kansas City offensive co-ordinator Matt Nagy as head coach earlier this year, and it also prompted a free agency raid that saw them bring in Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel and Trey Burton in an attempt to give second-year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky some much-needed weapons in the passing game.

Many were still predicting a fourth-placed finish for the Bears despite those new arrivals, but the biggest move came on the eve of the season and it appears as though it may have turned Chicago from an improving team to a legitimate playoff contender.

The Bears completed a blockbuster trade with Oakland to land linebacker Khalil Mack, and following the announcement of the deal pundits and bookmakers were forced to rethink their stance when it came to the Bears.

Their first-half domination of Green Bay certainly sent a message to the rest of the NFL, before an epic second-half collapse cost them dear, but with Mack and the rest of that talented defense dominating the opposition the Bears bounced back to beat Seattle and Arizona, and Chicago then improved to 3-1 in Week 4 as the offense suddenly exploded into life.

Trubisky threw six touchdown passes – one short of equalling an NFL record – as the Bears stormed to a 48-10 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and despite sitting out Week 5 due to a bye week they continue to sit atop the NFC North.

Expectations for the 2018 season have shifted dramatically because of this and Chicago are now just 4/9 to make the Playoffs at Paddy Power, meaning the 2/5 Minnesota Vikings are the only NFC North team ahead of Nagy’s men in the market right now.

Green Bay are out at 6/5 following last weekend’s defeat in Detroit, with the Lions out at 13/2.

Chicago will return to action this weekend when they visit 3-2 Miami on Sunday, and despite being the road team they have been installed as 4/7 favourites in the Moneyline market, with the Dolphins considered 25/17 underdogs.

The Green Bay Packers made a trio of adjustments to the team’s practice squad Tuesday. The Packers released running back Joel Bouagnon from the practice squad and signed running back Tra Carson and receiver Keon Hatcher to the practice squad. Carson (5-11, 228) spent the last three seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals after going undrafted out of Texas A&M in 2016. He’ll give the Packers extra depth running back after releasing Darius Jackson last week. Hatcher (6-1, 212) is an undrafted free agent who spent his entire rookie season on the practice squad of the Oakland Raiders. He caught two passes for 34 yards against the Packers this past preseason and made the 53-man roster coming out of training camp but was released after Week 1. Hatcher will join DeAngelo Yancey, who was signed last week, as the two receivers on the 10-man practice squad. The Packers practice squad: RB Tra Carson, WR Keon Hatcher, WR DeAngelo Yancey, G Anthony Coyle, OLB Kendall Donnerson, FB Joe Kerridge, DL James Looney, OL Adam Pankey, CB Will Redmond, DL Deon Simon.

          Flags shadow Xavier Rhodes' shutdown assignments      Cache   Translate Page      
The Vikings’ 38 penalties this season are the 10th fewest among teams that have played five games. Tennessee leads those teams with 29, followed by New England and Washington at 31 apiece. The Bears (26) and Panthers (29) have fewer in one fewer game. Penalties, of course, are drive-killing pains in the backside. But they don’t always correlate to wins and losses. Some of us learned this watching the Oakland Raiders terrorize the ’70s. This year, the undefeated Chiefs have 52 penalties. Then again, the equally undefeated Rams have 32. The Steelers are the most penalized team with 59. The Packers weigh in at No. 3 with 50. The Lions have 42. Among Vikings players, cornerback Xavier Rhodes is in a familiar spot atop the penalty leaderboard with four. Since his rookie year in 2013, Rhodes has finished first in penalties every season. He did share the top spot with former left tackle Matt Kalil in 2014. It’s no surprise that a shutdown corner would be a team’s most penalized player. In terms of trying to avoid penalties, left tackle might be the only position that comes even close to the level of difficulty Rhodes faces as he shadows the opponent’s No. 1 receiver for 60 minutes (or more) each week. Especially in today’s NFL, which seems quite determined to mimic the Big 12 in terms of offense and lack of defense. Over the years, Rhodes has become a Pro Bowler and, last year, a first-team All-Pro. He’s done it while frustrating the likes of Calvin Johnson, Julio Jones and Antonio Bryant. He also has drawn 54 penalties in 80 games, which helps explain why his most recent penalty came when he kicked the official’s flag in frustration over his second holding call in the Rams game two weeks ago. Among Vikings players since 2013, defensive end Everson Griffen is second with 34 penalties in 80 games. Kalil, who hasn’t played for the Vikings since Week 2 of the 2016 season, is third with 28 in 50 games. In his career, Rhodes has 24 holding penalties and 17 pass interference penalties. But, overall, his penalty totals have fallen from 12 in 2015 to 11 in 2016 to nine a year ago. He has four in five games this year. But last year he had four in three games before finishing with only five in the final 13 regular season games.
          Terminó la gran temporada de Gleyber Torres      Cache   Translate Page      
La eliminación de los Yanquis de Nueva York, el martes, al caer frente a los Medias Rojas de Boston en el cuarto juego de la Serie Divisional que disputaban en la Liga Americana, puso fin a la gran campaña de Gleyber Torres, un estreno en la MLB que le deja como uno de los tres novatos más notables del joven circuito, camarero del presente y del futuro en el Bronx.

Torres se fue de 4-1 en el encuentro decisivo, disputado en el Yankee Stadium, y cerró el duelo con .308 de averaje y .400 de promedio de embasado ante los patirrojos, producto de cuatro hits y dos bases por bolas en 15 apariciones legales. Contando el choque de los comodines contra los Atléticos de Oakland, cerró globalmente con .250 en su primera postemporada.

El caraqueño fue el último out del compromiso, al dar un rodado lento que el antesalista Eduardo Núñez atacó, para retirarle en la inicial por pocos centímetros, en una desafortunada acción para el recluta, que se dilucidó un minuto después, con la revisión de la jugada a través de la TV y la reiteración del out.

Adeiny Hechavarria corría en segunda base con la potencial carrera del empate, cuando el capitalino consumió su último viaje de 2018 en las Mayores.

Más allá de la eliminación, que le afecta, Torres no podrá quejarse de sus logros personales. Terminará entre los tres jugadores más votados al premio Novato del Año, casi con toda seguridad, una carrera en la que son favoritos el japonés Shohei Ohtani y el dominicano Miguel Andújar.

El camarero cerró el torneo regular con promedios de .271/.340/.480, con 24 jonrones (cuarto mejor en todas las Grandes Ligas en ese departamento) y 77 empujadas (segundo entre sus pares y récord para novicios venezolanos).

Over the years, Rhodes has become a Pro Bowler and, last year, a first-team All-Pro. He’s done it while frustrating the likes of Calvin Johnson, Julio Jones and Antonio Bryant. He also has drawn 54 penalties in 80 games, which helps explain why his most recent penalty came when he kicked the official’s flag in frustration over his second holding call in the Rams game two weeks ago. Among Vikings players since 2013, defensive end Everson Griffen is second with 34 penalties in 80 games. Kalil, who hasn’t played for the Vikings since Week 2 of the 2016 season, is third with 28 in 50 games. In his career, Rhodes has 24 holding penalties and 17 pass interference penalties. But, overall, his penalty totals have fallen from 12 in 2015 to 11 in 2016 to nine a year ago. He has four in five games this year. But last year he had four in three games before finishing with only five in the final 13 regular season games.

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

I was living in Harlem.

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

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

We always said our meeting was destined.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We were one.

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

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

We had so many things in common.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Get up and run!

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

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

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

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

          Bernie On The Road For Midterm Candidates      Cache   Translate Page      

I talk to congressional candidates all day. Sometimes I am amazed that I can get any posts done for my blog at all. One question candidates are always asking me is if I can get Bernie (or Elizabeth Warren) to campaign for them in their districts. Invariably the answer is no. It's not like Bernie calls me up and says, "Hey dude, remember PS 197 in Brooklyn? Got any candidates this week you want me to go campaign for?" If I'm lucky I can get Bernie's chief economic advisor, Stephanie Kelton to do a call with a candidate to explain how to message progressive priorities like Medicare for All, Job Guarantee or Free state colleges.

Last week, I turned the tables on candidates. I asked them, strictly as an intellectual exercise, who they would like to have come campaign for them. Virtually everyone said Bernie and/or Elizabeth Warren. Many said Michelle Obama. A couple said Michelle's husband. No one said Pelosi. No one said Hillary. So I asked, "Would you like Pelosi or Hillary to come campaign for you?" No one said yes-- no one-- not even in districts that Hillary won. Bill and Hill are going on a North American tour soon, but Democrats breathed a sign of relief when it turned out the tour doesn't start until the midterms are over.

Democratic candidates and voters are extremely excited that Bernie is off on a national tour to help bolster progressives running for office. Yesterday CNN reported that so far he's got more than 15 planned events in nine states.
The pre-midterm-election blitz begins on October 19 in Indiana, where the Vermont independent will stump in Bloomington for Liz Watson, who is trying to unseat Republican Rep. Trey Hollingsworth, and ends October 27 in Oakland, California, with a rally for Rep. Barbara Lee, a longtime progressive stalwart who could join the House Democratic leadership next year.

In between, Sanders is slated to hit the ground in a series of key 2020 primary and general election states, including Iowa-- he'll make three stops there over two days for J.D. Scholten, who is challenging GOP Rep. Steve King-- and Columbia, South Carolina, for a rally with Our Revolution, the group that emerged from Sanders' 2016 presidential campaign. He will host a pair of town halls, in Iowa and Indiana, to warn against cuts to Social Security.



Sanders will also return to Michigan to campaign for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Gretchen Whitmer in Ann Arbor on the second half of the tour's first day. In August, he endorsed her primary opponent, Abdul El-Sayed, and headlined a pair of events for him days before the vote. But Whitmer, a former state Senate minority leader, won easily and Democrats quickly coalesced behind her.

On October 22, Sanders will head to Wisconsin for a rally with Sen. Tammy Baldwin and other Badger State Democrats in Milwaukee, before heading west to Arizona, Colorado and Nevada.

His Western swing begins with a pair of events with progressive favorite David Garcia, who is challenging Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Ducey. The incumbent has a comfortable lead in most polling, but Garcia, who is Mexican-American, has touted his candidacy as a means of engaging and energizing the Latino vote in a state President Donald Trump won by less than 4 percentage points.

A stronger-than-expected showing by Garcia in November could also help Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, who is locked in a tight Senate race with Republican Rep. Martha McSally.

Then it's off to Colorado, a state Sanders won in the 2016 primary, for rallies in Boulder and Fort Collins backing Rep. Jared Polis, who is favored to become the first openly gay man elected governor in US history.

In Nevada, Sanders will hit Reno and Las Vegas to support Rep. Jacky Rosen in her race to unseat Republican Sen. Dean Heller. For the Democrats to have any chance of taking over the Senate next year, Rosen would need to oust Heller in a campaign CNN has rated as a toss-up with early voting less than two weeks away.

Before Sanders wraps his nationwide swing in California with Lee up in Oakland, he will rally down in San Diego with House candidates Mike Levin, who is vying to take over retiring GOP Rep. Darrell Issa's seat, and Ammar Campa-Najjar, whose bid to flip the district held by Rep. Duncan Hunter got a major boost when the Republican and his wife were indicted in August on charges of spending campaign cash on personal expenses like travel and clothing.

Hunter has denied wrongdoing and remained in the race.
Goal ThermometerRandy Bryce reminded us that Bernie is extremely popular in Wisconsin, especially so in his district. "He won 71 out of 72 precincts in the 2016 primary election. Both events he did with me packed the venues to capacity on opposite sides of the district. Having been endorsed early by Senator Sanders has been a huge help. Republicans think that the progressive ideals both of us fight to advance are 'radical.' If making sure people can see a doctor is radical or, if promising not to make cuts to Social Security is 'far left' I’ll take that title. It just shows how out of touch these extremist Republicans really are."

Randy's campaign manager, David Keith, is also very excited about Bernie's third trip to speak directly with WI-01 voters. "Bernie speaks directly to the issues voters here care about-- he doesn't speak in soundbites, but rather he speaks in kitchen table reality. He knows what working people feel and he delivers a message that makes sense to people. He beat Hillary and beat Trump in our corner of the state because he talks to working families and what they care about, no beating around the bush, the same way Randy campaigns. He's been here with Randy twice before and the statewide solidarity event in Milwaukee is going to be crucial-- even beyond our base.

From Kamasi Washington to Old Time Relijun to Yaeji.

THURS OCT 11

Collate, Cockeye, Trash Romeo, B.R.U.C.E.
B.R.U.C.E. is incredibly straightforward: The Portland punk band’s name is an acronym for the phrase “Burn Rapists Until Crispy and Enjoy,” their Facebook profile lists their sole influence as “vengeance,” and their short bio says, “Come for the German nü metal, stay for the Nazi stomping.” I can confirm that their music is just as intriguing as these small but telling bits of information: The first few seconds of “Succubus,” the opening track from their debut EP Stay Pissed (self-released in May), contain the power of a thousand screaming succubae. (The Fixin’ To, 8218 N Lombard, 8 pm, $5) CIARA DOLAN

Chanti Darling, Bells Atlas, Club Tropicana DJs
Portland’s R&B darling Chanticleer Trü is bringing his solo, retro-futurist soul project Chanti Darling to the Holocene dance floor this week. Chanti’s rhythmic, funky kaleidoscope of a performance will be accompanied by Bells Atlas, a group of psych-pop R&B artists out of Oakland. If you don’t want to boogie, don’t show up. (Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, 8:30 pm, $12-14) ALEX ZIELINSKI

THURS OCT 11 & FRI OCT 12

Courtney Barnett, Waxahatchee
Beloved for her deadpan delivery of lyrics like “The paramedic thinks I’m clever ’cause I play guitar/I think she’s clever ’cause she stops people dying,” Australian singer/songwriter Courtney Barnett returns to Portland to play songs off her new album Tell Me How You Really Feel, an unfussy indie rock masterwork in which she spends 10 songs trying to answer that question for herself. (Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, 8:30 pm, $35 adv/$40 door, all ages) CD


{{image:8}}

FRI OCT 12

My Bloody Valentine
Led by guitarist Kevin Shields, My Bloody Valentine helped lay the groundwork for the shoegaze genrein the 1980s and ’90s, fishing for melodies from deep ponds of dissonant white noise. The Irish rock band dissolved in 1997, reunited in 2007, and released their long-awaited third studio album MBV (a follow-up to 1991’s beloved Loveless) in 2013. With talk of an EP and fourth LP in the works, My Bloody Valentine has debuted a couple of new songs at recent shows. Their current tour is their first in five years, and that hiatus from the stage is likely what caused Portland fans to buy up all the tickets to this Roseland show—you never know how long MBV will keep you waiting. (Roseland, 8 NW 6th, 9 pm, sold out) CD

Shame, Goon
About nine months ago, London post-punk quintet Shame whipped into town and whipped the crowd at the Doug Fir into a legitimate frenzy. The group was visiting Portland for the first time, having just released their debut LP, Songs of Praise—a blisteringly hot collection of post-punk anthems that sneer at modern England and the sorry lot that call the island home. Live, the songs went from open-hand slaps to closed-fist kidney jabs, made all the more powerful by frontman Charlie Steen’s sweaty, agitated bark. Fuck MBV; don’t miss this show. (Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 9 pm, $13-15) ROBERT HAM

SAT OCT 13

Old Time Relijun, Oh Rose
In Olympia in the early 2000s, Old Time Relijun shows were mystical freak-outs that invited all present to lose their dancefloor inhibitions. Part Captain Beefheart, part Screaming Jay Hawkins, and part no-wave party band, they tapped into rock ’n’ roll’s transcendent possibilities in ways previously deemed lost and forgotten. When they were onstage, it was easy to believe they were creating something that had never existed before—a style of music the rest of us had only heard in our dreams. After a decade-long hiatus, Old Time Relijun is back for a short West Coast tour that kicks off in Portland to celebrate the band’s 23rd anniversary. (Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 9 pm, $16-18) JOSHUA JAMES AMBERSON

SUN OCT 14

Michael Nau and the Mighty Thread, Erin Rae
After spending several fruitful years fronting Page France and Cotton Jones, Michael Nau comes full circle on his latest solo record, Michael Nau and the Mighty Thread. With an Americana sheen weighted by heavy lyrics about life, love, existential dread, and everything in between, Nau’s knack for nostalgia-mining is preternatural on tracks like “When,” which wraps a Spector-like wall of sound around a rollicking rock ’n’ roll gem. He’s somehow able to top that with “On Ice,” a song that could be played for about 300 years and never sound old. (Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 8 pm, $13-15) RYAN J. PRADO

Lee “Scratch” Perry, Alter Echo, E3
Jamaican reggae producer and dub music pioneer Lee “Scratch” Perry and Subatomic Sound System is touring in celebration of the 45th anniversary of Perry and the Upsetters’ landmark album, 1973’s Blackboard Jungle Dub. I saw Perry at Bumbershoot a couple years back and had a joyous time vibing out to his greatest work and smoking weed in public with the reggae-loving masses. At 82 years old, Lee “Scratch” Perry has still got it. (Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie, 9 pm, $22-25, all ages) JENNI MOORE

MON OCT 15

MC50, Starcrawler, Holy Grove
You’re not going to get a full reunion of Detroit heavy-rock pioneers the MC5 anytime soon—the majority of its members are too dead for that to happen. But the righteous anger and political fury of the band’s 1969 classic Kick Out the Jams are still sadly relevant to our modern era. Surviving guitarist Wayne Kramer is doing the next best thing: putting together an all-star lineup of fellow lifer musicians, including Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil and Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty, and bringing these songs back to fire-breathing life to celebrate MC5’s 50th birthday. (Roseland, 8 NW 6th, 8 pm, $32-149) RH

TUES OCT 16

Hermitage Piano Trio
Tonight, the technically impeccable Hermitage Piano Trio represents their motherland with an all-Russian program featuring Tchaikovsky’s delightful take on the months of the year, as well as a more melancholic piece created by a 19-year-old Rachmaninoff. Perhaps the ultimate reason to attend, though, is to give witness to the Piano Trio No. 2 composed by the emotionally tortured Dmitri Shostakovich. Created during World War II, this uncanny work of dissonant tones, agitated rhythms, and unsettled sonic quality somehow manages to capture the reality of millions dead and millions more terrorized. The piano, cello, and violin have never sounded more disturbing. (Lincoln Hall at PSU, 1620 SW Park, 7:30 pm, $30-55, all ages) BRIAN HORAY

Matthew Sweet, The Dream Syndicate
This co-headlining bill connects two acts that reintroduced a melodic edge to guitar rock during their respective heydays. The Paisley Underground-affiliated Dream Syndicate holds down the spacier end of things. Their return in 2012 after a quarter-century-long split culminated in the recent LP How Did I Find Myself Here?, a fantastic collection of craggy psych-rock jams. Closing out the night is Matthew Sweet, who, since his 1991 breakthrough Girlfriend, has perfected chiming, lovestruck pop with varying degrees of volume and intensity. His latest album, Tomorrow Forever, is another masterwork that leans on his close reading of ’60s and ’70s classics from both sides of the Atlantic. (Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell, 8:30 pm, $25-30) RH

Raquel Divar, Cory O, Penny Wide Pupils, Bodie, One Wub
While they definitely qualify as a hip-hop act, Raquel Divar and Cory O are often booked for non-hip-hop lineups like the SYNT (See You Next Tuesday) weekly show dedicated to dubstep and the “deeper, darker side of bass music” at Bit House Saloon. The last time I saw Raquel Divar take the mic was at the Thesis in August, and it might have been her best performance to date. The crowd was apparently feeling that same energy as Raquel expertly performed challenging verses to dark tracks like “Runners Anthem,” “Snakes and the City,” and “Vandals,” from Divar and O’s new collaborative EP The Reign. There’s no better time than the present to go support this dynamic producer/MC duo. (Bit House Saloon, 727 SE Grand, 9 pm, free) JM

WED OCT 17

Lebenden Toten, Violent Party, Destripados, Genogeist
Bands on the crusty end of the punk spectrum might pay lip service to the terrible beauty of chaos, but the medium rarely matches the message—it doesn’t get much more musically conservative than a two-minute blast of Discharge worship. Portland’s noise-punk rulers Lebenden Toten are a bracing reminder that spiky punk can still shock, and last year’s Mind Parasites LP might be the band’s most forceful statement yet. An exhausting and essential listen, the album is a 20-minute tour of an infernal punk landscape that is all singing static and melting borders, and the songs that live there sound like monsters feeding on the madness. It is messy and ugly and beautiful. (The Lovecraft, 421 SE Grand, 8 pm, $8) CHRIS STAMM

St. Paul and the Broken Bones, Black Pumas
Austin psychedelic soul outfit Black Pumas only have one single to their name, “Black Moon Rising,” but it is one GREAT fucking song. Based solely on the immense strength of their Pickathon 2018 set, I highly recommend seeing them live. The fusion of singer Eric Burton and producer Adrian Quesada manifests in fleshed-out, guitar-driven, vintage-sounding soul that’s sure to win over any audience member with a pulse, and make all of you want to buy a “Black Pumas” T-shirt. At Pickathon, the band performed a bunch of their as-yet unreleased material, and although I generally had no idea what I was listening to—save for a truly remarkable cover of Eleanor Rigby that nearly moved even my Beatles-purist friend to tears—I loved every second of it. Ever since, I’ve been obsessed with finding more. I did dig up a small handful of YouTube videos to briefly tide me over, with Black Pumas performing Black Moon Rising and songs like Colors and Get It Together at venues in Austin. Though their album was expected to be released on Colemine Records over the summer, Eric Burton told me via Twitter that the group is still working on it and it’ll come out in 2019. Until that gem drops, at least we have another opportunity to enjoy them in the flesh. (Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, 8:30 pm, $35-38, all ages) JM

Richard Reed Parry’s Quiet River
Imagine spending 15 years playing in indie rock mega-band Arcade Fire, where every album release is a global event and every show is a giant, life-affirming crescendo. Sounds exhausting, doesn’t it? It’s no surprise, then, that someone like Richard Reed Parry—Arcade Fire’s redheaded multi-instrumentalist—might use his time off from the main gig to retreat into something much smaller and more intimate, with a more personal connection. Enter Parry’s new folk-rock song cycle, Quiet River of Dust, Vol. 1: This Side of the River. It’s a lovely little listen, packed with adventurous takes on folk traditions and inspired by hikes through Japan, supernatural experiences, mythological concepts, and the music of Arthur Russell, Tom Waits, and Parry’s late father. Is Parry going to headline Madison Square Garden with this stuff? Probably not, but surely that’s part of the point. (Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 9 pm, $17-20) BEN SALMON


{{image:17}}

THURS OCT 18

Mercury Rev, Marissa Nadler
Although it shares a shimmering sonic universe (and the magic touch of producer Dave Fridmann) with The Soft Bulletin, Mercury Rev’s 1998 masterpiece Deserter’s Songs didn’t ride into the 21st century with a dedicated following to match the Flaming Lips’ cult of worshipers. While The Soft Bulletin will be forever pinned to a cultural moment, Deserter’s Songs has retained an air of mystery and majesty, and listening to it in 2018 doesn’t feel like revisiting a familiar peak. To dip into Deserter’s Songs today is to be stunned by a beauty that still seems vaguely alien. Tonight’s celebration of the album’s 20th anniversary promises to be a trip backward into something strange. (Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 9 pm, $25-30) CS

Kamasi Washington, Victory
Kamasi Washington doesn’t do anything on a small scale. His 2015 major-label breakthrough The Epic is 172 minutes of fiery jazz. This year’s double album Heaven and Earth is only slightly less dense, but absolutely solidifies his status as a truly visionary saxophonist. Washington’s done himself an immense favor by performing with some hot-shit players over the years, including Thundercat and drummer Ronald Bruner Jr. His shows always deliver, whether he’s sticking to the script or veering into improvised ecstasy. Jazz has long fallen out of favor in popular music, but Washington seems to be the first player in years to successfully bring the form to wider audiences. (Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, 8 pm, $29.95-35, all ages) MARK LORE


{{image:13}}

FRI OCT 19

Tove Styrke, Au/Ra
Who knows why Tove Styrke is playing Holocene at 5:30 pm on a Friday, but what a treat! For those unfamiliar: Styrke is a former Swedish Idol contestant who, over the past decade, has developed into one of the most interesting and engaging pop artists out there. Her 2015 album Kiddo is a modern classic of tightly wound, technicolor electro-pop, the kind that bubbles up from underground rather than clubs you over the head (think Carly Rae Jepsen). It earned positive reviews, but didn’t exactly make Styrke the household name she should be (also Jepsen-esque!). Now she’s back with a long-teased third album, Sway, that flies by in seven tracks and just 25 minutes, plus... a demo of a Lorde cover? It’s a head-scratcher of a release, but rest assured, it’s well worth bailing out of work a little early. (Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, 5:30 pm, $16-18) BS

Hawthorne Hip-Hop Showcase
A lineup of all-local hip-hop at the Hawthorne on a Friday is a rarity, but with a bill this good and diverse, they might just pack the place out. In addition to six-piece hip-hop/soul/funk band Speaker Minds, there will also be a set by cannabis enthusiast/rapper Stevo the Weirdo, relative newcomer [E]m-press (their 2018 project HeartBreak Hotel is rock-solid), YungShirtMane of the Naturally Grown Misfits crew, and Mat Randol, who released the truly excellent and cohesive full-length Art of Allowing last month. (Hawthorne Theatre, 1507 SE Cesar E. Chavez, 8 pm, $10-12) JM

King Khan and The Shrines, Gabriella Cohen
From the looks of his Bandcamp page, it’s been a couple of years since Arish “King” Khan released anything with his nine-piece band, the Shrines. But what the garage-rock royal has unveiled to the world over the past two decades has been routinely spectacular, conjuring psychedelic legend Roky Erickson and the hip-swiveling soul of James Brown in equal turn. In recent years Khan has been recording and producing albums for other artists from his Moon Studio in Berlin, most notably his teenage daughter, Saba Lou, whose 2017 debut Planet Enigma is lo-fi cosmic folk at its best. The King Khan shows I’ve attended have been shocking, strange, and mind-blowingly great—prepare accordingly. (Star Theater, 13 NW 6th, 9 pm, $15) CD

SAT OCT 20

Saintseneca, Trace Mountains
Saintseneca’s songs crackle and buzz with an energy that’s the envy of many similar indie folk-rock bands. The Columbus, Ohio, group—helmed by singer/songwriter Zac Little—has felt like it’s been on the verge of bigger things for a while now, thanks to 2014’s Dark Arc and 2015’s Such Things. But the band’s new album, Pillar of Na, may be their best yet. It’s warm, strummy, restless, and relentlessly catchy, with one foot planted in the world of elegant pop-rock and the other rooted in punk ethos. It’s well worth a listen, if for no other reason than Little’s stated goal: “I told [producer] Mike Mogis I wanted Violent Femmes meets the new Blade Runner soundtrack,” he explains in the band’s bio. “I’m looking for the intersection between Kendrick Lamar and Fairport Convention.” Was he successful? That’s for your ears to decide. (Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 9 pm, $12-14) BS


{{image:16}}

MON OCT 22

Yaeji
Hailing from Brooklyn, Korean-American electronica artist Yaeji creates dance club soundscapes that are simultaneously bumping and introspective. Murmuring lyrics in Korean and English within the same song, Yaeji’s compositions usually start soft and build in intensity—but a kind of quiet, lush intensity, you know? For more on this, check out the poppin’ “Raingurl,” and “Drink I’m Sippin’ On” from last year’s EP2, and her newest single “One More”—a hypnotic number that’s tailor-made for your emotional dance floor. (Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell, 8:30 pm, $22-25, all ages) WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY

Ian Sweet, Young Jesus
“Deterritory,” the opening track from Young Jesus’ new album The Whole Thing Is Just There, harkens back to the unhinged musical abandonment of the ’90s Chicago underground. Owing as much to the angular minimalism of the Jesus Lizard as they do to the Kinsella brothers, Young Jesus’ powerful soundscapes arrive like the ramblings of a madman, and unfurl into poetic slices of post-rock genius. The Whole Thing Is Just There is replete with all the rage and poise of any thoughtful, pissed-off, vaguely jazz-minded art-punk collective, which is to say it’s a wildly engaging listen. (Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 9 pm, $12-14) RJP


{{image:19}}

WED OCT 24

Mic Check: Trox, OG On, Onry Ozzborn, Stevo the Weird, Free Tillman
Okay, I know I just covered Mic Check in the last installment of Sneaker Wave, but here they are again, doing another thing: Though the passing of StarChile caused the Mic Check crew to make their once-monthly concerts a quarterly event, this October, the local showcase is hosting a “pop-up” show at its usual spot. The pop-up will feature a beat set from Portland instrumental hip-hop artist Free Tillman; the Half&Half crew from Rapid City, South Dakota; Seattle rapper Onry Ozzborn; and Portland’s own Stevo the Weirdo. (White Eagle, 836 N Russell, $8, 7 pm) JM

Danzig, Venom Inc., Power Trip, Mutoid Man
The Danzig machine keeps moving in 2018, even if the band’s output comes less frequently and with varying quality. Its enigmatic frontman is still... well, goddamn Glenn Danzig. And although the John Christ and Chuck Biscuits days are almost 25 years in the rearview, Danzig has still managed to make a couple of decent-sounding records. At the very least, the Pale One is continuing to do things on his own terms. As metal continues to evolve and move a little further away from the days when Danzig was the genre’s physical embodiment, his DNA is still embedded in countless bands. Because let’s face it, demons never go out of style. (Roseland, 8 NW 6th, 7:30 pm, sold out, all ages) ML

The Internet, Moonchild
Obviously you know neo-soul band the Internet’s major 2015 hit “Girl,” from their Grammy-nominated album Ego Death, right? RIGHT!? (“Girl/If they don’t know your worth/Tell ’em you’re my girl/And anything you want is yours.”) Yeah, that’s what I thought. Their follow-up LP Hive Mind, also their first studio album to not be associated with the Oddfuture label, is basically a masterpiece. I’ll be shocked if this album isn’t nominated for a Grammy, but then again, the Recording Academy can’t even be trusted to bestow Beyoncé’s Lemonade with Album of the Year, so... yeah. Hive Mind highlights include lead singles “Come Over” and “La Di Da,” the sultry “Stay the Night,” “It Gets Better (With Time),” and “Look What U Started.” Pretty much all of these songs would make a smooth and easy soundtrack for late-night laptop work, and a logical addition to your lovemaking playlist. Their music just feels good, and seeing them live sounds like the perfect date night out, even if you just take yourself. (Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, 8 pm, $32.50-37.50, all ages) JM

Ty Segall, Shannon Lay
As a member of garage-punk quartet Feels, LA-based singer/songwriter Shannon Lay locks into the here and now of scuzzy California loudness, that realm ruled by Ty Segall and John Dwyer. Lay’s solo work, however, exists on a different plane, one unmoored from the waking present. The dazed and dreamy Laurel Canyon vibes of Judee Sill and Linda Perhacs chime at the edges of Lay’s dolorous folk, as does the neo-mysticism of Guy Blakeslee. But she’s not chasing anyone else’s strain of magic. On last year’s riveting Living Water, Lay lights her own way through the universal unknown, offering a consoling reminder that we are not always alone in our aloneness. (Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie, 9 pm, $25-30, all ages) CS

The Seattle Seahawks signed first-round pick running back Rashaad Penny to his rookie contract Wednesday.
The Seahawks have now signed six of their nine draft picks. Offensive tackle Jamarco Jones (fifth round) and quarterback Alex McGough (seventh round) signed earlier this week.
Penny was taken with the 27th overall selection. His contract is for four years with a team option for a fifth.
Penny was one of the elite running backs in college football last season as he became a full-time starter for the first time. He led the nation with 2 Adidas Ryan Getzlaf Jersey ,248 yards rushing and 23 touchdowns for San Diego State. Penny rushed for at least 200 yards in each of the final five games to close out the 2017 season and had 13 rushing TDs during the stretch.
Eighteen years after the Raiders made kicker Sebastian Janikowski a surprise first-round draft pick, his career in Oakland has come to an end.
The team told Janikowski this week that he won’t be brought back when he becomes an unrestricted free agent next month.
”The Raider Nation salutes Sebastian Janikowski as the sun sets on his illustrious career with the Oakland Raiders,” owner Mark Davis said in a statement Thursday. ”He joined the team as a surprise first-round pick in the 2000 Draft and finishes his time in Oakland as one of the greatest or perhaps the greatest kicker in pro football history. His powerful left leg produced an NFL-record 55 field goals of 50-or-more yards. The motto `Once a Raider, Always a Raider’ has never been more true as his 18-year career makes him the longest-tenured player in Raiders history.”
Article continues below ...
Davis’ father Erik Swoope Jersey , Al, made the stunning decision in 2000 to take Janikowski with the 17th overall pick. The only other kicker taken in the first round since the start of the common draft era in 1967 was Steve Little, who went 15th to the Cardinals in 1978.
Janikowski’s successful career made him the Raiders all-time leader in games played (268) and points scored (1,799). His 55 field goals from at least 50 yards are the most in NFL history. The only other player from the 2000 draft still on his original team is Tom Brady Adidas Will Butcher Jersey , who was picked 199th by New England.
Janikowski, who turns 40 on March 2, missed all of last season with a back injury. His agent, Paul Healy Youth Mark Letestu Jersey , said in an email that Janikowski is too young to retire.
Janikowski said last spring that he hoped to still be with the Raiders when the team moved to Las Vegas in 2020. But that didn’t happen after the back injury sidelined him before the start of last season and Giorgio Tavecchio took over as kicker.
There was some thought that new coach Jon Gruden might give Janikowski another chance since he was Oakland’s coach when Janikowski was drafted and for his first two seasons. Janikowski is one of five players who were on NFL rosters last season who have played at least one game for Gruden, joining punter Shane Lechler, kicker Matt Bryant, cornerback Aqib Talib and Raiders left tackle Donald Penn.
Janikowski’s departure leaves long snapper Jon Condo as the only player on the Raiders with the team before Al Davis died in October 2011. Condo is eligible to be an unrestricted free agent next month and his long-term status with the franchise is unknown.

NASHVILLE Youth Justin Bethel Jersey , Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Titans have added a pair of defensive linemen after placing cornerback Tye Smith on injured reserve and waiving injured defensive lineman Claude Pelon.
The Titans announced Tuesday they signed Johnny Maxey and Du’Vonta Lampkin.
Smith started both playoff games last January for the Titans and had 11 tackles with an interception during the regular season. Pelon, signed on the opening day of training camp, hurt his right knee Sunday in practice.
The 6-foot-5 Maxey was on the Titans’ practice squad for the final month of last season before being waived in April. He also has been on Pittsburgh’s practice squad and roster, playing two games in 2016. The 6-foot-4 Lampkin went undrafted out of Oklahoma and was in Baltimore’s rookie minicamp this spring.


A look at what’s happening around the majors today:
PACKING A PUNCH
Odubel Herrera tries to homer in his fifth straight game when the Phillies begin a three-game series at Washington. ”What he’s doing is special,” Philadelphia manager Gabe Kapler said. ”It’s elite.” Herrera is batting .419 (13 for 31) with two doubles, five homers and eight RBIs in the last seven games. Seven of his 12 homers have given the Phillies a lead. ”He’s a different breed Youth Denver Broncos Jerseys ,” pitcher Jake Arrieta said. ”When he gets hot, he’s fun to watch.”
ONE-DIMENSIONAL PLAYER
A sprained right index finger is expected to keep Angels star Mike Trout from playing the outfield during a four-game series against Toronto. Trout, who has reached base in 31 of 47 plate appearances over his last nine games, was the designated hitter Thursday night during an 8-5 victory over the Blue Jays. The two-time MVP went 0 for 2 with three walks in his 1,000th career game, ending his hitting streak at eight games. Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia said the injury isn’t serious and it won’t hinder Trout’s ability to grip or swing the bat.
BASHING THE BUCS
Jon Jay and the Diamondbacks look to keep feasting on Pirates pitching when the teams square off in Pittsburgh again. Arizona has scored 35 runs in going 3-1 against the Pirates this season. Jay doubled in each of the first two innings Thursday night Zdeno Chara Jersey , when the Diamondbacks cruised to a 9-3 victory. The center fielder is hitting .340 in 13 games since being acquired from Kansas City in a June 6 trade. Ivan Nova (4-5, 4.42 ERA) will try to slow down Arizona – the right-hander has won both starts with a 1.54 ERA since being activated from the disabled list June 10. He missed two weeks with a sprained right ring finger. Patrick Corbin (6-5, 3.48) gets the ball for the Diamondbacks. The lefty is 1-2 with a 5.90 ERA in five career starts against the Pirates.
ICHI-WHO?
Keep an eye on the Mariners‘ dugout at Fenway Park for a mysterious, mustachioed visitor when Seattle opens a series in Boston. Associated Press photographer Bill Kostround spotted Ichiro Suzuki hiding on Seattle’s bench Thursday at Yankee Stadium wearing a fake mustache, sunglasses and a hoodie. Officially, Suzuki isn’t allowed to be in the dugout during games under Major League Baseball rules after moving to the team’s front office in early May. But the 44-year-old outfielder channeled former Mets manager Bobby Valentine to sneak his way onto the bench – Valentine donned a fake mustache and sunglasses and returned to the dugout after being ejected from a game in 1999. ”He was perfect. I never would have known it was him Isaac Yiadom Color Rush Jersey ,” Valentine texted to the AP.
DOUBLE DIP
The Oakland Athletics and Chicago White Sox are set to play a single-admission doubleheader after Thursday night’s scheduled game in the Windy City was postponed because of rain. It was the 40th postponement in the majors this season, already one more than all of last year. James Shields (2-8, 4.63 ERA) and Lucas Giolito (4-7, 7.19) will start for Chicago, which has lost seven straight to match a season high and is a season-low 25 games under .500. Oakland will send Sean Manaea (6-6, 3.56) and Chris Bassitt (0-2 http://www.cowboysauthorizedshops.com/au...lup-jersey , 2.45) to the mound.

A look at what’s happening around the majors Sunday:
CHICAGO’S ACE
Jon Lester has put together some ace-worthy seasons during his 13-year major league career Authentic Eric Staal Jersey , including four All-Star appearances and a runner-up finish in the Cy Young voting two years ago. The Chicago Cubs left-hander is in the middle of what might prove to be his finest season so far, and he’ll look to become the National League’s first 12-game winner when he takes the mound against the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday. Lester is 11-2 with a 2.25 ERA this season, and he’s won his last seven starts – including going 5-0 with a 1.13 ERA during June.
GRADE-A OAKLAND
The Oakland A’s downed Cleveland 6-3 in 11 innings on Saturday, winning for the ninth time in their last 11 games and for the 15th time in their last 19. Oakland sits at a season-high nine games over .500 and will try and stay unbeaten for a seventh straight series when it closes out its series with the Indians. Brett Anderson (0-2, 7.63) starts for the A’s, and Shane Bieber (4-0, 2.97) goes for Cleveland.
GOING GREINKE
Arizona starter Zack Greinke has turned around his season since posting a 5.04 ERA in April and is 9-5 with a 3.35 ERA overall, including 112 strikeouts in 109 2/3 innings. The Diamondbacks right-hander will take the mound against the San Diego Padres, and he comes in having allowed only two runs in his last three starts combined – a span of 19 2/3 innings.
RICK’S REBOUND
Rick Porcello struggled mightily to follow up his 2016 Cy Young award-winning season a year ago http://www.jaguarsauthorizedshops.com/au...son-jersey , finishing a disappointing 11-17 with a 4.65 ERA. The Boston right-hander has returned to form this year with a 10-3 record and 3.57 ERA, and he’ll be on the mound when the Red Sox close out their season series with the Kansas City Royals.
OZUNA’S OUTAGE
Since winner the NL’s Player of the Week award last month, St. Louis outfielder Marcell Ozuna has been in a prolonged funk – going 15-for-71 (.211) and failing to hit a home run during that stretch. The Cardinals left fielder was the prized offseason acquisition in a trade from Miami, coming off a season in which he hit .312 with 37 home runs and 124 RBIs. This year, Ozuna is hitting .275 with 10 homers and 46 RBIs in 83 games.

Matt Harvey is getting another chance, this time with a historically bad team in a city that will have far fewer late-night temptations than the Big Apple. The Mets are getting a catcher who can help at their most unsettled position.
The Reds acquired the former New York ace for catcher Devin Mesoraco on Tuesday, shortly before Cincinnati pulled away to a 7-2 victory at Great American Ball Park.
The deal provided a fresh start for two former All-Stars whose careers have been sidetracked by injuries.
Mesoraco merely had to walk to the visiting clubhouse and was on the bench for the first pitch by Luis Castillo, which Mesoraco originally was supposed to catch. He was still wearing his Reds socks when he headed for the New York clubhouse, where attendants were sewing his name on the back of a Mets uniform.
TORONTO (AP) – All-Star closer Roberto Osuna of the Toronto Blue Jays was charged with assault Tuesday and put on administrative leave by Major League Baseball Geno Atkins Jersey , preventing him from playing for at least a week.
Toronto Police declined to say whether it was domestic assault. Constable Jenifferjit Sidhu said the charge is for one count of assault but provided no further details.
Osuna, who is from Mexico, is scheduled to appear in court June 18.
Administrative leave is not considered discipline. Osuna goes on the restricted list and continues to receive his $5.3 million salary, but is ineligible to play.
The Blue Jays recalled right-hander Jake Petricka from Triple-A Buffalo to take Osuna’s spot on the roster.
SOCCER
ASUNCION, Paraguay (AP) – A Paraguayan court on Tuesday confirmed the extradition of Nicolas Leoz, the former president of South America’s soccer confederation.
However, his defense attorney said they would appeal the decision at the country’s Supreme Court.
The 89-year-old Leoz was charged in a corruption scandal being investigated by the U.S. Justice Department, and has been held under house arrest in Asuncion fighting the extradition order.
A court in November approved his extradition to the United States, where he has been wanted since 2015 on charges of receiving millions of dollars in bribes from marketing companies in exchange for TV and marketing rights to soccer tournaments.
Leoz denies any wrongdoing.
An appeals court on Tuesday confirmed the decision by denying an appeal.
GENEVA (AP) – Five weeks before the World Cup kicks off Patrick DiMarco Jersey , FIFA fined the Russian soccer federation 30,000 Swiss francs ($29,900) on Tuesday because fans racially abused France players during a game in St. Petersburg.
Monkey chants were aimed at black players, including Paul Pogba, during France’s 3-1 win over Russia in a friendly in March at a marquee stadium which will host seven World Cup games.
FIFA said its disciplinary panel noted ”the gravity of the incident but also the limited number of fans involved.”
Anti-racism group Kick It Out said FIFA’s ”lack of effective action … will likely result in the further abuse of black players in matches involving (Russia).”
Russia faced criticism of racist incidents in domestic club games even before it was picked as World Cup host in 2010, and the federation was fined for racial incidents involving fans at the past two European Championships.
HOCKEY
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – The Carolina Hurricanes hired former captain and current assistant Rod Brind’Amour as their coach Tuesday, hoping the ”greatest leader” in franchise history can end a nine-year playoff drought.
The team also announced that club president Don Waddell will become the full-time general manager after serving as acting GM.
The team scheduled a news conference for Wednesday to discuss the moves.
Waddell said a number of coaching candidates were discussed, but ”our conversations with staff and players consistently returned to the same person.”
One of the team’s most decorated players Sergei Boikov Jersey , Brind’Amour captained the Hurricanes’ only Stanley Cup championship team in 2006.
ZURICH (AP) – FIFA ethics judges have imposed a life ban from soccer on a Guatemalan official who took bribes linked to marketing deals for World Cup qualifying games.
Hector Trujillo was the first defendant sentenced last October in a sprawling American investigation of soccer corruption. He received an eight-month prison term after admitting wire fraud and conspiracy charges.
FIFA says its ethics committee has fined Trujillo $200,000 but it is unclear how the sport’s ruling body can enforce payment.
In a Brooklyn federal court, Trujillo was said to have received bribes totaling $175,000 as the Guatemalan soccer federation’s CEO-like general secretary. He was ordered to pay $415,000 in restitution.
Trujillo, a former constitutional court judge, was arrested in Florida during a December 2015 cruise holiday, just days after the U.S. Justice Department unsealed an indictment against him.

Once Jared Goff and the Los Angeles Rams offense got started after sitting out the entire preseason Youth Cordy Glenn Jersey , they couldn't be stopped.
Goff threw two touchdown passes, newcomer Marcus Peters returned an interception 50 yards for a touchdown and the Rams used a dominant second half to spoil coach Jon Gruden's much-anticipated return to the Oakland sideline by beating the Raiders 33-13 on Monday night.
"There was a little bit of feeling it out, seeing what they're going to do, seeing what their scheme is," Goff said. "I thought our defense did a great job of responding as well as our offense. I still don't think we played up to our standards in the first half. Think the second half, we came out and we did."
Goff and the rest of the offensive starters for the Rams (1-0) didn't play at all in the preseason, and many of the top defensive players also got little time on the field in the exhibition games.
That might have contributed to the shaky start. The Raiders (0-1) moved the ball relatively easily and the Rams struggled to finish drives. But Los Angeles flipped the script in the second half, outscoring Oakland 23-0 and showing why this team is considered one of the favorites in the NFC after last year's breakthrough season that ended with a division title.
"I think for us to be able to go through a little bit of adversity and have to come back from behind going into the half, that was a good test of your resolve as a football team Jack Doyle Jersey ," coach Sean McVay said. "It was certainly a good job by those guys and I thought the offense responded."
Gruden had his first game as coach of the Raiders (0-1) since the end of the 2001 season. He was traded to Tampa Bay after that season and beat the Raiders in the Super Bowl the following year. He has been announcing for ESPN for the past nine seasons before Oakland owner Mark Davis finally lured him back to the delight of Raiders fans.
But there were only boos by the end of the night after Peters iced the game with his touchdown return on Derek Carr's third interception of the game.
"It was a tale of two halves," Gruden said. "Obviously we did not take care of the ball and that was a critical part of that football game."
Peters punctuated that with a celebratory dive into the end zone reminiscent of his close friend Marshawn Lynch.
"I did the Beast Mode," Peters said. "That's what I did."
Gruden's second stint started well with the Raiders taking the opening kick and driving 75 yards for a touchdown on a 10-yard run by Lynch. The Rams had Lynch stood up at the 3, but he powered his way into the end zone with help from a push by his offensive linemen.
Oakland managed just six points the rest of the way against a defense fortified by the offseason additions of former All-Pros Peters, Aqib Talib and Ndamukong Suh.
Carr threw an interception in the end zone to John Johnson in the second quarter and another in the fourth when he tried to pull back a pass at the last minute only to have the ball slip out and float right to linebacker Cory Littleton
"It was one of the dumbest plays you could have," Carr said. "I knew what I should have done as soon as that play was over."
The Rams matched the early score when Todd Gurley took a flip from Goff and raced 19 yards to the end zone . They took control in the second half.
Los Angeles tied it at 13 on a field goal by Greg Zuerlein on the opening drive of the third quarter and then took the lead for good on a 58-yard, four-play drive that featured two passes downfield to another offseason addition, Brandin Cooks, and then the 8-yard TD to Cooper Kupp.
MISSING MACK
The Raiders barely touched Goff all night just over a week after trading star pass rusher Khalil Mack to Chicago for a package that included two first-round picks. Bruce Irvin had the only sack when Goff held the ball too long and there were few other pressures.
TOUGH STARTS
Gruden's defeat dropped the league's new head coaches to 0-7 in Week 1.
FLAG DAY
The Raiders once again had issues with penalties Adidas Shea Weber Jersey , committing 10 for 145 yards in the first half alone thanks to two long pass interference calls against Rashaan Melvin (37 yards) and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (50). That's more yards in penalties than they had in any game during Gruden's first four-year stint and the most in the first half for any team since at least 2000. The Raiders had one penalty for 10 yards in the second half.
INJURIES
Raiders long snapper Andrew DePaola injured his knee in the first quarter and didn't return. TE Lee Smith filled in and provided accurate snaps on two field goals. He had a high snap on a punt but Johnny Townsend leaped and brought it down with no issues. It was a far cry from the 2012 season opener when Jon Condo got hurt for Oakland and Travis Goethel came in and botched three snaps in a loss to the Chargers.
"It was stressful, I can't even lie to you guys," Smith said. "I'm just glad they all got back there."
Rams returner Pharoh Cooper left in the second half with an ankle injury.
ANTHEM
Lynch sat once again during the national anthem. Lynch also sat for the anthem all of last season but never gave a reason for his decision.

Markstrom kept the Canucks in the game with some big stops Authentic Erik Karlsson Jersey Kids , including getting a pad on Milan Lucic’s shot in the first period.
”For me right now it’s just a carry-over from the feeling I had in the previous games,” Markstrom said. ”I just keep building on it.”
McDavid showed some of his magic on the game’s opening goal at 11:33 of the first period. After defenseman Andrej Sekera flipped a puck down the ice, McDavid showed his speed by skating around Gagner then muscled defenseman Michael Del Zotto off the puck. He scored on a shot that hit Markstrom’s blocker, went off the post, and into the net.
Gagner was also battling the flu Thursday.
”When you get stuck on the ice with him (McDavid) it’s not funny even when you are feeling 100 percent,” Gagner said. ”Obviously he’s special.”
The Oilers captain has 14 points (seven goals, seven assists) in his past six games.
Gagner earned some redemption by tying the game at 15:14 of the second. Daniel Sedin took a shot from the faceoff circle that Talbot stopped. Gagner, alone at the side of the net, put in the rebound for his third goal in four games.
”You never want to be a culprit on a goal-against Authentic Mark Andrews Jersey ,” Gagner said. ”It was a tough one there. I thought the guys battled back really well. It’s a nice feeling.”

          Avoid Tragedy: Be Alert to This Rising Poison Threat      Cache   Translate Page      

By Dr. Karen Shaw Becker

A recent Facebook post by Dr. Jen Gunter of Marin County, California about her Labrador Retriever, Hazel, is a good reminder that marijuana and dogs can be a toxic combination. Gunter and 3-year-old Hazel went for their daily run, and then Gunter went grocery shopping. When she arrived home, she noticed immediately that something was wrong with Hazel.

“She was on the couch,” Gunter told NBC News. “Her head was hanging over and she couldn’t lift herself up. I got out the tennis ball, which she ignored. Normally, you get out the tennis ball and she is just all over it.”1

As soon as Gunter touched Hazel, the dog began to shudder. She couldn’t hold herself upright or even keep her eyes open, and then lost control of her bladder. Gunter, terrified, rushed Hazel to an emergency animal hospital, where the veterinary staff immediately suspected marijuana poisoning.

Sure enough, the dog’s urine toxicity test showed positive for THC (the psychoactive chemical in marijuana). Gunter suspects Hazel scarfed up part of an edible or a joint while they were out for their run. Her Facebook post urges people to properly store and discard marijuana products to protect pets.

Today’s Marijuana Is More Accessible, Comes in More Forms, and Is Much More Potent

A 2012 retrospective study (2005 to 2010) analyzed trends in marijuana toxicosis in dogs living in states with legalized medical marijuana.2 The researchers looked at 125 family dogs in Colorado that had been seen by a veterinarian at one of two veterinary hospitals for known or suspected marijuana poisoning.

Their results revealed a significant correlation between the number of medical marijuana licenses and marijuana toxicosis cases seen at the two hospitals. The majority of dogs recovered, but two dogs who ingested edibles made with medical-grade THC butter didn’t survive.

Fast-forward to 2018, and the emergency vet staff in California that treated Hazel sees 10 cases of marijuana poisonings a week, and they certainly aren’t alone. According to the American Veterinarian journal, vets across the U.S. are reporting a significant increase in the number of pets — mostly dogs — being treated for marijuana intoxication.

Both medical and recreational marijuana have become increasingly available in recent years, and in novel forms such as foods, pills, oils and tinctures. In addition, new hybrids and cultivation techniques have resulted in plants with significantly more THC than in decades past.

The Pet Poison Helpline reported a stunning 448 percent increase in calls for marijuana poisoning over the past six years, with the majority involving pets who ingested marijuana-laced food products.

Pets Can Ingest High Levels of THC in Any Number of Ways

From the Pet Poison Helpline:

“Cannabis sativa and cannabis indica are members of the Cannabaceae family. Slang terms include pot, weed, grass, and Mary Jane, just to name a few. Marijuana affects receptors in the brain which alter normal neurotransmitter function. Dogs and cats can be poisoned by marijuana from smoke exposure or from eating any type of marijuana/THC plant or laced baked foods (e.g., pot brownies, pot butter, etc.).

Other sources of THC include highly concentrated oil products, like butane hash oil (BHO or ‘dabs’), filtered and purified oil (‘shatter’), or wax made from whipped oil. These products are meant to be smoked via a bong (water pipe), or ‘vaped’ like e-cigarettes in order to give users an instantaneous, powerful high. All of them contain 60 [to] 90 [percent] THC, and small ingestions pose great risk for pets.”3

As veterinarian Dr. Gary Richter of Holistic Veterinary Care in Oakland, California explained to NBC News, dogs have more cannabinoid receptors than humans, which makes them more susceptible to the effects of cannabis than people.

Signs of Marijuana Poisoning

In dogs who’ve ingested marijuana, noticeable symptoms can appear within minutes to hours depending on the type of exposure (inhalation versus ingestion). Typical signs of poisoning include glassy eyes, a dazed expression, slow response times, loss of coordination and dribbling urine.

There can also be vomiting and drooling, seizures, changes in heart rate, decreased body temperature, low blood pressure, tremors, dilated pupils, vocalization, neurological stimulation, hyperactivity and coma. The more THC the dog ingests, the more severe the symptoms usually are.

Treatment is supportive in nature, and depending on the situation may include inducing vomiting and/or administering activated charcoal to minimize the amount of toxin absorbed by the body. For more serious cases, intravenous (IV) fluids may be given and respiration monitored.

Bottom line: Keep all marijuana plants and products stored safely away from pets, and when outdoors with your dog, stay alert for signs he’s picked up something in his mouth. Marijuana isn't the only drug dogs are being exposed to while out and about. If you know or suspect your dog has ingested marijuana, call your veterinarian, the nearest emergency animal hospital, or the Pet Poison Helpline at 855-764-7661 immediately.

Medical Marijuana for Humans Versus Medical Marijuana/Cannabidiol (CBD) for Pets: An Important Distinction

The legality of treating pets with cannabis products is still a muddle, but that issue aside, it’s important to understand the difference between medicinal marijuana for humans versus pets. It’s primarily about THC levels — humans can tolerate a significantly higher level of THC than is safe for pets.

Meanwhile, there’s an exploding cannabidiol market out there for pets (and people). CBD oil products approved for pets are made from hemp or cannabis plants that contain all the benefits of medical marijuana, but with low-to-undetectable levels of THC. There are also studies underway at some veterinary teaching hospitals and colleges to evaluate the effectiveness of CBD oil in treating a variety of conditions that occur in dogs and cats, including seizures and arthritis.

If you’re interested in learning more about CBD oil for your pet, be sure to consult with a reliable, reputable source. Ask for a “Certificate of Analysis” from the manufacturer that shows how much THC is in the product (it should never be over 0.3 percent), how it’s made, and whether it’s organic and free of pesticides and other chemicals.

I also recommend my friend Dr. Rob Silver’s book, “Medical Marijuana and Your Pet: The Definitive Guide.” It’s written for dog and cat owners to help them understand the benefits and risks of cannabidiol for pets, as well as regulatory issues.

          Watch This GOP Judicial Candidate Ask for Special Treatment After Getting Busted for DUI: 'This Will F*ck Me Up'      Cache   Translate Page      
“I’m running for an office right now,” Julie McDonald told officers.

The tough-on-crime mantra has played a prominent role in Republican Party politics in recent decades, especially when communities of color are involved. But Republicans aren’t always so tough on crime when they are the ones who run into problems with the law—and when Julie McDonald, a GOP judicial candidate in Oakland County, Michigan, was recently arrested on suspicion of DUI, her request for preferential treatment was denied.

According to a police report, McDonald was pulled over by police in Royal Oak, Michigan after allegedly throwing a cigarette out of her car window and speeding.
A newly released police video shows McDonald exiting the vehicle and submitting to field sobriety tests; when a breathalyzer showed her to be over the legal limit, McDonald was handcuffed behind her back and placed under arrest.

In the back seat of a police car, McDonald is heard telling police, “I’m running for an office right now. This will fuck me up really bad”—to which the officer replied, “There’s not a lot of discretion I have with something like this.”

Despite being handcuffed in back, McDonald managed to make a call using her smartphone and told someone, “I’m in the back of a police car….I’m not joking, I’m screwed. Please come help me, please.”

According to the police report, McDonald had been consuming mixed drinks.  

McDonald’s arrest recalls a similar incident involving a different Republican—New Mexico State Rep. Monica Youngblood—earlier this year. On May 20, Youngblood was arrested on suspicion of DUI in Albuquerque.

Youngblood (who, unlike McDonald, refused to take a breathalyzer test) had campaigned on a tough-on-crime platform in 2012, 2014 and 2016—including tougher penalties for DUI and reinstating the death penalty in New Mexico. But when she was handcuffed in the back seat of a police car, McDonald argued that police should cut her some slack because “I literally fight for you guys.”

In a police video, Youngblood is also heard saying, “So many people tell me that you guys treat people of color like shit, and I always stood up for you.”

On October 3, Youngblood was sentenced to one day in jail, a year of probation and community service. Youngblood must report to the Bernalillo County Jail no later than Friday, October 19; nonetheless, the 41-year-old Republican is seeking reelection in the 2018 midterms and is running against Democratic nominee Karen Bash (a retired minister).

At her sentencing, Youngblood told Judge Kevin Fitzwater, “I am well aware that actions have consequences, and that is something I have talked about my entire time in public service. And I am ready to accept the consequences of my actions that evening.”

McDonald, meanwhile, was charged with DUI, littering and lacking proof of auto insurance. She is running unopposed for a six-year seat on the Oakland County Circuit bench.

Los Angeles, Calif., Oct 10, 2018 / 02:01 pm (CNA).- A lawsuit in California is accusing bishops from all of the state’s dioceses, as well as the California Catholic Conference and the Archdiocese of Chicago, of covering up sexual abuse.

Jeff Anderson and Associates, a Los Angeles based organization that advocates for alleged victims of alleged sexual abuse by Catholic priests, filed the lawsuit Oct. 1.

The plaintiff, Thomas Emens, alleges he was abused for two years in the 1970s, starting at age 10. Attorneys for the plaintiff claim to have uncovered, by examining public documents, more than 300 priests from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles who are alleged offenders.

The plaintiff is requesting that each diocese “publicly release the names of all agents, including priests, accused of child molestation, each agent’s history of abuse, each such agent’s pattern of grooming and sexual behavior, and his or her last known address,” according to the lawsuit.

The California Catholic Conference released a statement Oct. 4 responding to the lawsuit, saying that the lawsuit and report overlook the positive steps that all California dioceses have taken since 2003 to mitigate abuse, including the “zero tolerance” standard to make sure no one with a credible accusation of abusing children is allowed to function as a priest, as well as a lay-led Independent Review Board to advise bishops on whether an accused priest should be allowed to return to ministry.

The conference also pointed out that information on all of the alleged accused priests that Jeff Anderson attorneys uncovered was publicly available.

“Allegations of abuse have been rare since 2003, responded to and uniformly reported, but we know we can never be complacent,” the statement read. “The twelve dioceses of California will never waver in their commitment to protect young people.”

The Diocese of San Bernardino released a list Oct. 8 of 34 priests credibly accused of abuse in recent decades. The local bishop has apologized to victims and said the failure to protect children has led to “new awareness” about the “terrible scourge” of sex abuse.

Six of the priests on that list have been convicted in criminal court. All but one priest on the list have been dismissed from the clerical state, permanently banned from ministry in the diocese, or have died.

The Diocese of Oakland has announced plans to release an analogous list in the coming weeks.

The lawsuit comes following the August release of a Pennsylvania grand jury report covering a 70-year period across six dioceses in the state. The report alleged more than 300 priests had sexually abused over 1,000 children in that timeframe.

The Golden State Warriors on Tuesday signed free agent guard Will Cherry. It’s probably a non-guaranteed deal that will only last during preseason, which wraps up in a few days. Cherry, 27, appeared in eight games with the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 2014-15 season, averaging 1.9 points and 1.0 assist in 8.6 minutes per game. The Oakland [...]

          Worlds of Sound: Bells Atlas Explores New Musical Frontiers      Cache   Translate Page      
Bells Atlas will play Neurolux in Boise on Tuesday, Oct. 16. Bells Atlas is, in bassist Doug Stuart's words, a "very democratic band." Each of its members—Stuart, lead singer Sandra Lawson-Ndu, guitarist Derek Barber, drummer Geneva Harrison and keyboardist Steve Blum—take an active role in creating songs. Stuart feels that this helps keep their music fresh. "It's always happened naturally for us," he told Boise Weekly, "because the process is never really limited to one person or even two people. And I think because of that, and because we're all pretty diplomatic, we end up surprising ourselves." The Oakland, California-based band's latest release, Salt and Soap (Tender Loving Empire, 2018), is a good case in point. The foundation for the EP's four tracks came from recordings on Harrison's phone. "There was a period of time where Geneva traveled to New York for a few months to do a gig," Stuart explained. "We hadn't been writing too much prior to that—we'd just come out of a cycle of playing a lot of live shows. Anyway, before she left, she was like, 'Here's this folder of a bunch of beats that I just played in my practice space. If you guys feel uninspired, you should check 'em out.'" Harrison's bandmates found inspiration in more than her angular, funky drum beats. "The phone recording itself was kind of inspiring," Stuart said, "because it gave us this grainy, distorted, interesting sound on top of her unique playing. ... Sandra and I started a handful of [songs] from there. And then when [Harrison] got back from her gig, she got in on the process and Derek was roped in throughout. It was a new process for us for sure." Listeners and critics have taken note of Bells Atlas' unique blend of R&B, African music, pop and psychedelia. Afropunk.com, the online hub of the festival and cultural movement of the same name, praised the band's music as "a sumptuous feast for the ears." Impose declared that "no two-bit adjectives can contain their infectious sound, [which] draws influences from all corners and unexpected places the world over." Boise music fans can hear that unique sound on Tuesday, Oct. 16, when Bells Atlas plays Neurolux. Local electronica act Up is the Down is the will open. When Stuart and Lawson-Ndu formed the group in 2011, they called it simply "Bells." Recruiting Harrison and Barber, they played under that name for almost two years before they discovered a problem.…
