          И грянул гром      Cache   Translate Page      

«Я пьяна. Точно пьяна. Это все не на самом деле!» - Алексис до конца не хотела верить в то, что это не шутка ее друзей – идиотов, которым только дай волю и они снимут о тебе такой ролик, что ты за мгновение станешь звездой ютуба. Вот только такой славы Лекси не хотела. Она привыкла быть королевой, а не посмешищем. Наверное, первые мгновения, она все еще пыталась убедить себя, что мужчина, который был одет, как на картинках из учебников истории, просто нанятый актер. Он смотрел на нее, как на чудо природы. Как на богиню, которую встретил впервые в жизни. Такое не сыграешь. Или этому незнакомцу пора было выдать Оскар. Сделав несколько шагов назад, девушка уперлась спиной, в какую – то преграду. Она до конца не могла понять, что ей мешает спрятаться в тех вон зарослях, которые простирались вплоть до самого горизонта. Но стоило ей оказаться на расстоянии вытянутой руки от таинственного незнакомца, как Алексис тут же бросилась в противоположную сторону. И вновь оказывалась в какой – то странной ловушке, которую покинуть у нее не получалось. Девушка чувствовала себя загнанным в клетку зверем. А когда мужчина заговорил на диалекте, который она так часто слышала из уст матери, блондинка и вовсе вжалась в непроходимую стену, опасаясь, что незнакомцы, которых оказалось слишком уж много,  теперь нападут на нее. «Просыпайся, просыпайся, чёрт возьми. Ну же, Алекс!». Вот только как Лекси не старалась, она не могла переместиться обратно в тот привычный для нее мир, где она, как и здесь, была богиней. Вот только тот мир ей был знаком, а этот казался ужасным, словно она, как героиня одного из мультфильмов детства, оказалась в стране собственных кошмаров. И только лишь когда ее защитный воздушный шар испустил дух, и блондинка могла идти на все четыре стороны,  она больше не смогла сделать ни шагу. Какой – то частью сознания девушка понимала, что оказалась в чуждом для нее мире, что мужчина, которого она считала сумасшедшим, оказался гением. Он всё-таки создал машину времени. Ведь даже воздух здесь был другим. Чистым что – ли. Деревьев так много, словно они оказались в каком-нибудь ботаническом саду. И было тихо. Так тихо, что Алекс готова была сойти с ума просто от этой звенящей тишины. Она давила куда больше, чем гул машин, который девушка привычно слышала за окнами огромного особняка своих родителей.  Прижавшись спиной к дереву, которое встало у нее на пути, Лекси прикрыла глаза. Она старалась успокоиться, хотя сердце, едва ли не выпрыгивающее из груди, выдавало в ней страх, даже больше, чем взгляд, который еще мгновение назад в ужасе смотрел на мечи, которые держали в руках мужчины. А у нее ведь с собой не было даже пистолета. И если они поймут, что они ошиблись, что Алексис никакая не богиня, то тут же убьют ее…в лучшем случае. А в худшем. Этого блондинка даже представлять не хотела. Уж лучше смерть. И как же она сейчас хотела оказаться в той самой комнате, в том зловещем доме в компании ненормальных друзей, в своем таком привычном мире. Но сколько бы она не смотрела по сторонам, сколько бы не искала взглядом какой – нибудь рычаг, который нужно повернуть, чтобы включить машину по перемещению во времени, но не находила. «Путь обратно должен быть. Он просто обязан быть где – то здесь! Я не могу…не хочу оставаться в этом древнем мире!». Вот только пути назад не было. Или просто Алексис не могла его отыскать. От обиды к глазам даже слезы подступили. У нее же тут ничего нет. Никого. У нее ведь даже платьев и тех нет.  Не говоря уж об оружии. Хотя и оно ей вряд ли бы помогло. Она же ни разу не стреляла, даже в тире. «Дыши, Алекс, дыши. Все будет хорошо. Твои друзья точно найдут, как  все исправить. Они заберут тебя обратно. Осталось просто их дождаться». Надежда прекрасная штука. Она может заставить двигаться вперед, даже тех, кто желает всеми силами стоять на месте. Вот и Алекс, которая мгновение назад, изо всех сил вжималась в дерево, словно ища у него зашиты, двинулась по направлению к собравшемуся вокруг нее отряду. Мужчины были правы – компания разбойников была бы гораздо хуже. А эти выглядели хотя бы похожими на благородных воинов. Вдруг, если они уверуют в ее божественное происхождение, помогут ей прожить в королевских условиях до того времени, пока друзья ищут способ ей помочь. Ведь такая белоручка, какой была Алексис, тяжелый труд был явно противопоказан. А то ведь она, как сказочная принцесса, почувствовала бы горошину, даже под миллионом перин. Не говоря уже о том, чтобы работать в полях или участвовать в сражениях. Или чем  там занимались женщины в древности? Хорошо, что блондинка хотя бы понимала незнакомцев. Спасибо матери за науку. Не думала Лекси, что разговорный греческий может ей пригодиться и даже спасти жизнь.   
- Да, Агенор, я богиня. Афродита. Знаете такую? Она самая прекрасная из прекрасных.
Прямая спина,  почти добродушная улыбка, самоуверенно вздернутый носик и твердая речь. Разве не так себя ведут богини? Нет, они, конечно, еще карать умеют. Вот только Алекс карать было нечем, поэтому приходилось притворяться самой добродушной из добродушных.
- Знаете, на Олимпе тоже бывает скучно. Вот и захотела немножко развлечься, пожив среди простых людей. Я наделена одной божественной обязанностью – творить любовь. И я вижу, что ты нуждаешься в моей помощи, Агенор. Афродита никогда не проходит мимо тех, кто ищет свою настоящую любовь. 
Конечно же, Алексис не знала точно - женат был Агенор, влюблен или даже не верил в любовь, считая своей единственной спутницей войну. Девушка просто импровизировала и не знала как по – другому обосновать свое внезапное божественное «падение». Тем более она верила предостережениям воинов, которые говорили о скором приходе разбойников и прочих искателей наживы. Там – то ее точно продадут в рабство просто, потому что сочтут красивой, предварительно забрав все драгоценности, которыми она увешана, как новогодняя ёлка.
- Ваши друзья правы, Агенор. Нам лучше поторопиться. Ваш же дом там?
Лекси сделала несколько шагов вперед, наблюдая за небольшой дымкой, которая в ее мире струилась из трубы, стоило только поленьям в камине затрещать. Девушка на мгновение даже ощутила пленяющий запах костра и приближение Рождества. Вот только в этом, таком пугающем мире, дым иногда был не символом домашнего уюта и очага. Он говорил об опасности. Опасности, которая смотрела на блондинку из – за деревьев. Смотрела и улыбалась. Слишком поздно девушка заметила тех, о ком не так давно говорил один из людей Агенора. Разбойники. Хотя, быть может, здесь они считались и благородными воинами. Кто их знает?

Взаимодействую с Jason Ackles, здороваюсь с Alysa Liddell, Leo Montanelli, Stella Weinberg

внешний вид
...  ранами на руках обшарпанную краску крученых лестниц. Загонять под ногтевую пластину, заставлять остаться в ней на века, куда бы не бросало выщербленными на полотне жизни мрачными коридорами с потайными панелями. К которым стоило найти свою разгадку головоломки, но за смешением полутонов ярости замечаешь лишь ничего. Ритмично выдавая следующий слог мысленно стертого имени. Сквозь зубы вообразив, как снисходящая пелена ночи угнетает его выделенное дырой от пули тело и душу. Отвратительную, с бултыханием всполошившихся инстинктов, слышимых под слоями неизменно тянущего по вертикали чувства мести. Мне надо сказать, что предопределила для себя роль той, кто приведет в баланс чертову справедливость, коли вера в ту даму сильнее и сильнее угасала во мне, только у меня не было права распоряжаться чужой судьбой. Да, сломали гораздо больше, чем мою. Да, восхищаясь ощущением безнаказанности, дышали мне в спину. Да, напоминали, насколько слаба в рвениях защитить любимых, если в какие-то двадцать три уже дважды сжимаю в руках четное количество кроваво-алых цветов. А чуть позже наблюдали, как пальцами к заслуженно разбитой губе от человека, плевать хотевшего на искренность моих молений о прощении. Но это да ... да ли? Да?! Ведь все равно маячила мысль о прекращении вереницы делаемых ошибок, где-то на уровнях осознания невыносимости нахождения в собственной коже, а так, хоть с целью - свое существование под откос методами не бессмысленными относительно дорогих людей. Возьму и переиначу часть случившегося, перепишу ее заново. Благо, каждая клеточка полнится не просто презрением, хлещущим по щекам. Едкой ненавистью. В длинной мантии, изящно несущей наряд по иссушенной земле, с треском отколотых кусков за каждым шагом босых ступней. Припорошенная покровом капюшона. Рассмотрел ли кто-либо какова под ним? Успел разглядеть черты? Или стался ослепленным чарующим притяжением, соединенным с душащей тошнотворностью? Ай, впрочем, мне и самой предстоит разобраться в обретенных знаниях, а пока ... пока я научилась, от и до по наклонной, разделять берега скользких троп. С даром медленно волочить злобу, не давая ей выхода. Брошу боль позади и оденусь в улыбку, ибо ради брата не сметь выдавать переживания, оставить в поле видения исключительно взбалмошность характера сестры, привычную для лицезрения. Раскрыть, как действительно искренне рада за него. Отстраненно отметив, мол, пожалуй, вот она. Моя сторона силы. От бессилия.

Я любила Джея. Его озорную искру во взгляде, авантюризм, неугасающую тягу к адреналину. Ловко переплетаемые со сбалансированной ответственностью, верностью принципам и заботой. Свойственное ему не обесценивание понятия дружбы, из-за чего близкие буквально находились как за каменной стеной. Что говорить о шикарном умении подъебывать ... лучше продемонстрировать на наикрутейших примерах, в которых я бы с удовольствием швырнула несколько пар обуви тракторной подошвой по чьей-то физиономии. Нагло смеющейся. В конце концов, этот засранец умудрился показать мне роль слова "семья" в совершенно ином ключе взаимопонимания, коего я прежде не представляла для своей шкуры. Пусть, конечно, мать по мере исчезновения подростковых обид перестала быть очагом бед, заняв позицию женщины, посвятившей жизнь обеспечению материального благополучия. В том числе и моего абитуриентского, тогда "овергордого", тупо отрицать. По окончании университета зазывала назад в многоминутных диалогах на английском, терпеливо не переходя на наш шведский. В дань принятия нового, где инициалы дочери читаются совсем по-другому. За оное, безусловно, благодарна. Тем не менее, зачем я, намерившаяся еще зацепиться здесь, в мире, наделяющем меня главными испытаниями, без Сакраменто? Далеким часовым поясом от места, заменившего родную обитель и ставшего абсолютно всем? В уже непривычной свежести прохлады города на насыщенность солнечных красок, ярких в отражении черт сформировавшейся внутренней меня? Забыть имевшееся, что так значимо? Серьезно, мам? Нет, знаешь, моя милая, к черту. Наравне с пожирающими мозг размышлениями о реакции мистера Эклса на сию озвученную бы новость. Предполагаю, "положительной" после пьяной в хлам смелости предложения: "Хей. Я - Джо. И я у брата алкоголик ... ". С итоговым укатыванием в Стокгольмский закат со своими ежанутыми тараканами. Клево, ага? Спасибо, однако давай сразу откажусь. Настою на своем, будто и не пролетало пяти лет по разным странам. Воспротивлюсь предложению. И не выжду закатывания твоих глаз, дабы не тратить попусту драгоценное время, и у меня то поджимающее ... а уж у тебя-то и подавно.

Светлый лак на ногтях. Маленькая грациозная шпилька вместо массивного. Локоны-волны. Пастельных тонов выбор элементов гардероба. Отчаянный контраст, бурчащий о несоответствии с предпочтениями, на него я успевала только вздыхать, периодически матерясь. Важный день для Джейсона, потерплю. Не моего темперамента дело морщить нос эгоистки, портя торжество. Потому, слегка смирившись, я закуриваю третью или четвертую за утро, сбилась со счету. Последний раз ловлю отражение в зеркальной поверхности, задерживаюсь немногим больше секунды, почти тут же в направлении за порог к умопомрачительному чуду автопрома - Ламборгини глубокого оттенка беззвездной ночи. Аккуратно раскладываю половину цветочного магазина и красиво упакованные коробки, располагаясь на водительском. Строго беру с себя обещание вести прилично и, вообще, быть паинькой. Мой ангел-хранитель, кажется, доволен. Особенно, когда, несмотря на мешающее платье, вне происшествий я добираюсь до поместья. Недоволен онли профессиональный любитель собирать неприятности, но кружащее веяние свадебного настроения покоряет меня, заместив налет расстройства. В паре со снизошедшим озарением необходимости повторения n-количества заходов перемещения того объема привезенных подарков теперь в прочую точку координат. Хорошо, решено: наступит их звездный час, распределю поэтапно. Сейчас же, стремглав, водрузиться из удобных при вождении кедов в босоножки, сообразить, куда ринуться для объявленных мною мысленных розысков ненаглядного братца. Чтобы после заспешить стуком каблуков внутрь дома, по верной траектории. Надеясь. Видимо, не зря. Пронаблюдать за знакомым силуэтом, сократить метраж, ослепительно улыбнуться и опереться рукой на плечо Джея с выражением как ни в чем не бывало, словно я в столь роскошном особняке давно.
- Эй, чувак, офигенно выглядишь!  -  вовсе не стебусь. Наоборот, восхищаюсь покоряющей элегантностью, сменой на прикосновение губами к его щеке. Под эффектом атмосферы наигранно грозное обращение в заранее предупрежденном, - А вот ты только посмей отвесить что-либо о моем внешнем виде ... приветствую, прекрасные, - крайнюю фразу гостям с вежливостью, граничащей с любопытством. Ни малейшего привкуса напускной строгости от слов к Джейсону, разумеется. Что-что, а бесконечный такт этикета вбит матерью в меня конкретно. И это при всем пиетете к условию довольно редкого использования.


          California probably added large numbers of non-citizens to voter rolls      Cache   Translate Page      

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

Complaints about so-called “motor voter” registration (dating back to the passage of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993) have largely fallen on deaf ears. After all, why not give everyone the chance to vote, right? California has been taking that concept to a new level, however. The DMV there has now issued yet another round of retractions after discovering that an additional roughly 1,500 residents were registered to vote despite being “ineligible.” And in the vast majority of these cases, you already know what that means. They’re registering non-citizens. (Sacramento Bee)

An internal audit from the California Department of Motor Vehicles released Monday shows about 1,500 customers may have been improperly registered to vote.

“Approximately 1,500 customers may have been registered to vote in error,” the DMV wrote in a letter Monday to the Secretary of State’s Office. “This error has been corrected and is separate from the processing error we notified you about in writing on September 5.” Non-citizens are among the affected customers, according to Jessica Gonzalez, a DMV spokeswoman…

The DMV said none of the processing errors occurred through the fault of the customer. None of the affected customers are undocumented immigrants.

1,500? That sounds like a lot of non-citizens to register, doesn’t it? Don’t be silly. That’s a drop in the bucket compared to the 23,000 erroneous voter registrations we learned about in September. Granted, not every one of them is a non-citizen. Some could have been felons who are ineligible to vote and a few drivers under the age of 18. But for the most part, it appears to be non-citizens and the numbers are now in the tens of thousands.

But that doesn’t mean that every one of them is actually going to vote, right? That’s a fair point also, but assuming any of them wish to do so, who is going to catch them? It’s hard enough to track down fraudulent voters as it is, but when they’ve been “legitimately” registered and certified through the DMV it’s probably impossible for the most part.

Even California’s Secretary of State issued a statement saying that he remains “deeply frustrated and disappointed” in the DMV’s inability to carry out their responsibility in this fashion. But is this entirely the DMV’s fault? Handling voter registration is outside their original, core mission. Regulating the activities of motorists is entirely unrelated, and DMV offices around the nation have been demonstrating this for a quarter of a century now. Besides, California (as with the rest of the states) already had a governmental body responsible for voter registration. If you thought they weren’t doing a good enough job shouldn’t you have taken it up with them?

California has a number of tight House races shaping up for next month. Some of them may come down to a matter of a couple thousand or even hundreds of votes. It will be interesting to see if the public is ever enlightened as to how many people voted in those races who shouldn’t have been registered.

          Officials: Power lines ignited fatal blaze in California      Cache   Translate Page      

SAN FRANCISCO – Two sagging Pacific Gas & Electric power lines made contact, sparked and ignited a Northern California wildfire last year that killed four people and injured a firefighter, officials said Tuesday.

The finding adds to the growing financial liability of PG&E over wildfires in the state.

Its equipment has been blamed for starting 13 wildfires last year and the utility has told shareholders it expects to pay more than $2.5 billion in damages.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said Tuesday that strong winds in Yuba County, near Sacramento, caused the lines to touch, creating an electrical arc that sent molten material onto dry vegetation in last October.

The fire scorched 15 square miles and destroyed 264 structures. Cal Fire sent its report on the cause of the blaze to the Yuba County district attorney.

The wildfire swept through Northern California during the state’s deadliest and costliest wildfire season. The fires killed 44 people and destroyed more than 5,000 homes.

State officials say insured damages alone topped $9 billion and PG&E could be liable for much of it. Insurance companies have filed dozens of lawsuits calling for PG&E to reimburse them for settling claims from policyholders.

California law compels utilities to pay for damages from wildfires if their equipment caused the blazes – even if the utilities weren’t negligent.

PG&E spent millions of dollars in an 11th hour lobbying effort at the end of the California legislative session in a failed attempt to change the law to reduce its financial liability.

PG&E spokeswoman Lynsey Paulo said Tuesday that “extreme weather, years of drought, and millions of dead trees are feeding an unprecedented risk of wildfires.”

Paulo said, “we recognize we all need to do even more to help reduce the risk of wildfires and are committed to working together with our state and community partners to develop comprehensive safety solutions.”

Paulo said the utility is working on improving fire prevention by strengthening poles and lines, upgrading weather modeling and clearing vegetation around equipment.

Fire investigators have blamed PG&E equipment for 12 wildfires last year in wine country, including two that killed a total of 15 people.

In eight blazes, Cal Fire investigators said they found evidence of violations of state law and forwarded the findings to county prosecutors.

PG&E last week agreed to pay $1.5 million to Butte County to avoid misdemeanor criminal charges after Cal Fire determined downed power lines caused three wildfires in the region.

Cal Fire hasn’t determined fault for the Tubbs Fire, the most destructive in state history that destroyed thousands of homes and killed 22 people in Sonoma County.

          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.

          Trump's War on Immigrants: The Latest      Cache   Translate Page      
[Content Note: Nativism; child abuse; Nazism.]

Donald Trump's war on immigrants — migrants, refugees, undocumented, documented, and naturalized citizens — continues to expand in scope with each passing day and is doing untold harm to countless immigrant families. Here is some of the latest news.

1. Staff at WABC-TV: Fliers from Neo-Nazi Texas Group Call on Residents to Report Undocumented Immigrants. "The signs urge people to report undocumented immigrants to the government, calling it 'civic duty.' The posters are turning up in Sunnyside Queens, an ethnically rich neighborhood in a city full of immigrants. 'We are the home to so many immigrants from so many different countries, speaking so many different languages,' said New York City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer. 'That's what makes Queens so unique and so special.' ...While out on a jog this weekend, Van Bramer says he was shocked to see a flier posted on Skillman Avenue that called on residents to report undocumented immigrants. ...The councilman says he promptly tore down the flier and tweeted the incident. ...The councilman says a white supremacy, neo-Nazi group from Texas has claimed responsibility for the flier."

2. Vivian Yee and Miriam Jordan at the New York Times: Migrant Children in Search of Justice: A 2-Year-Old's Day in Immigration Court.
Though the exact figures are not known, lawyers who work with immigrants said the large number of migrant children now being held in detention has given rise to a highly unusual situation: more and more young children coming to court.

"We rarely had children under the age of 6 until the last year or so," said Ashley Tabaddor, president of the National Association of Immigration Judges. "We started seeing them as a regular presence in our docket."

These young immigrants are stranded at the junction of several forces: the Trump administration's determination to discourage immigrants from trying to cross the border; the continuing flow of children journeying by themselves from Central America; the lingering effects of last summer's family-separation crisis at the border; and a new government policy that has made it much more difficult for relatives to claim children from federal custody.

...When Ms. Ziesemer started at Catholic Charities a decade ago, the program for child immigrants appearing in court on their own was so small that it was run by a part-time coordinator, and all their clients could fit in a roughly 10-bed shelter, a small house in Queens. Now there are staff members conducting screenings of seven or eight children a day, trying to coax basic facts out of children who might be too young or too frightened to articulate what had happened to them. There are so many that they sometimes do not meet their clients until the day of their hearings.

Until a couple of months ago, most of the children never would have stayed in a shelter long enough to end up alone before a judge. But the bottleneck in the background-check process means longer stays in custody, and the possibility that some children might have to see a judge multiple times before being delivered to their mother or uncle or cousin. The shelters are now almost full — not because more children are entering the country, immigration advocates say, but because the government has tossed up another obstacle to leaving.
3. Garance Burke and Martha Mendoza at TPM: 'They Told Me I Would Never See Her Again': Deported Parents Lose Kids to Adoption. "The 'zero-tolerance' crackdown ended in June, but hundreds of children remain in detention, shelters, or foster care and U.S. officials say more than 200 are not eligible for reunification or release. Federal officials insist they are reuniting families and will continue to do so. But an Associated Press investigation drawing on hundreds of court documents, immigration records, and interviews in the U.S. and Central America identified holes in the system that allow state court judges to grant custody of migrant children to American families — without notifying their parents. And today, with hundreds of those mothers and fathers deported thousands of miles away, the risk has grown exponentially."

4. Yesenia Amaro and Barbara Anderson at the Sacramento Bee: 'We Don't Know What to Do': Proposed Trump Rule Strikes New Fear in Immigrant Communities. "A proposed Trump administration rule that would make it more difficult for immigrants to become legal residents if they get government benefits has Fresno County immigrants and advocates concerned, while gaining support from fiscal conservatives who say the U.S. should not have to support individuals coming into the country. The proposed changes are making legal immigrants reconsider applying for public benefits that they are entitled to, such as Medi-Cal and food stamps. Undocumented immigrants, who are ineligible for most government programs, are afraid that the few services they are able to receive would prevent them from gaining legal residency."

5. Garrett Epps at the Atlantic: A High-Stakes Immigration Case Hits the Supreme Court. "Nielsen v. Preap may determine whether thousands of longtime residents of the U.S. face indefinite detention without a hearing. ...Nielsen is a class action brought by a group of immigrants in the Ninth Circuit who have been or are being detained under 8 U.S.C. § 1226, a provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act. That section authorizes federal authorities to detain any alien who may be subject to 'removal' — the technical term for deportation. That term covers a lot of immigrants — border-crossers arrested after entering the U.S. illegally, tourists or students who have overstayed their visas, and lawful permanent residents who have committed certain crimes."

Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed just in time to cast his vote in a ruling that will have significant consequences for immigrants. And it a virtual certainty that he will cast his vote on the side that harms immigrants.

Make noise. Make your calls. Make a plan. Please support immigrant families, in whatever way you can.
          Warriors reciben a LeBron      Cache   Translate Page      
El mejor equipo de la liga -favorito para ganar un tercer título en forma seguida- y el mejor jugador del circuito - quien encabeza la encuesta entre los gerentes generales para ser el MVP de la próxima temporada- se han reunido ahora en la División del Pacífico de la Conferencia Oeste de la NBA.

Es lo que ha provocado la llegada de LeBron James (27.5 ppj, 8.6 rpj, 9.1 apj) a los Lakers de Los Angeles con un contrato de cuatro años y 153 millones que lo llevó desde su natal Cleveland a la meca del espectáculo y el cine.
En esa parte de los Estados Unidos lo esperan sus archirrivales de los Warriors de Golden State liderados por Kevin Durant (26.4 ppj) y Stephen Curry (26.4 ppj). Los orientados por Steve Kerr hicieron el movimiento más sorprendente al contratar por un año al lesionado DeMarcus Cousins (25.2 ppj, 12.9 rpj), considerado el mejor centro de la liga, quien vio sus bonos reducidos debido a la lesión en un talón que lo mantendrá fuera de acción por gran parte de la primera mitad.
Tras verse las caras en cuatros finales seguidas (Cavaliers-Warriors) ahora serán más comunes los choques entre el reconocido como mejor jugador de la actualidad y el que ha demostrado ser el mejor equipo con tres coronas en cuatro campañas.
Los Clippers de Los Angeles -que dijeron adiós con las manos vacías al inconsistente y desafortunado grupo integrado por Chris Paul, JJ Redick, Blake Griffin y DeAndre Jordan- intentarán competir en medio de una reestructuración, mientras que los Suns de Phoenix y los Kings de Sacramento cambiarán victorias por el desarrollo de sus jóvenes talentos en la búsqueda de la experiencia que los haga competir en el más corto plazo.
Orden pronosticado: 1 - Warriors 2 - Lakers 3 - Clippers 4 - Suns 5 - Kings
Caras Nuevas: Además de LeBron, los Lakers contrataron a Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, Javale McGee y Michael Beasley para unirlos a los prometedores Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram y Josh Hart. Cousins se junta con Durant, Curry, Draymond Green y Klay Thompson para formar un quinteto All-Star. El centro Marcin Gortat y los delanteros Luc Mbah a Moute y Mike Scott se integran a los Clippers. Los Suns dan la bienvenida a Trevor Ariza y los suplentes Richaun Holmes y Darrell Arthur mientras que los Kings abrieron sus puertas a Yogi Ferrell, Nemanja Bjelica y Ben McLemore (de regreso).
Nuevo coach: Igor Kokoskov (Phoenix). El esloveno es el primer europeo que va a dirigir un equipo de la NBA, pero no es un recién llegado a la liga. Tiene una experiencia de 18 años como asistente con los Clippers, Detroit, Phoenix, Cleveland y los Jazz.
Novatos a seguir: DeAndre Ayton (Phoenix). El número uno del sorteo, el bahameño Ayton (7-1 de estatura, 20.1 ppj, 11.6 rpj con la Universidad de Arizona) espera combinarse con Devin Booker (24.9 ppj) para ser un dúo de interior-exterior que dé muchas victorias en el futuro. Shai Gilgous-Alexander (Clippers). Un armador alto (6-6) sobre el que se cifras muchas esperanzas para heredar el puesto que dejó hace un par de temporadas, Paul. Promedió 14 puntos y 5 asistencias con Kentucky. Marvin Bagley III (Kings). Un jugador ofensivo de 6-11 de altura en la zona restringida (21 ppj, 11.1 rpj con Duke) que apunta a liderar al club a batallar por no ser el peor equipo de la conferencia.

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...

          ELEIÇÕES 2018: Rui Costa, do PT, é reeleito governador da Bahia      Cache   Translate Page      
Petista superou seis concorrentes ao cargo e garantiu mais quatro anos no posto com 75,71% dos votos. Zé Ronaldo e Marcos Mendes aparecem na sequência na lista dos mais votados.

Rui Costa, do PT, foi reeleito em primeiro turno, neste domingo (7), governador do estado da Bahia para os próximos quatro anos.


Com 99,43% das urnas apuradas, o petista tinha 5.061.957 votos, o que correspondia a 75,45% dos votos válidos. O segundo colocado, Zé Ronaldo (DEM), tinha 1.496.482 votos, ou 22,30% dos votos válidos.

Veja o resultado da apuração: em todo o estado; por cidade; por zona eleitoral

"Quero dedicar essa vitória a Deus, ao povo da Bahia e a minha mãe e a meu pai, onde eles estiverem. Essa Vitória é pra vocês dois, que formaram todos os meus valores para eu chegar aqui. Sei que vocês estão orgulhosos de ver alguém que nasceu na favela chegar até aqui e receber esse carinho da Bahia", disse o governador logo após chegar para comemoração no bairro do Rio Vermelho, em Salvador.

A reeleição faz com que Costa, eleito pela primeira vez para o governo do estado em 2014, na eleição para a sucessão do também petista Jaques Wagner (que governou também por dois mandatos), permaneça no cargo até 2022. Com isso, o PT se consolida no comando do executivo estadual por 16 anos consecutivos.

Rui Costa dos Santos, de 55 anos, nasceu no bairro da Liberdade, em Salvador, no dia 18 de janeiro de 1963. O pai, Clóvis dos Santos, era metalúrgico, enquanto a mãe, a dona de casa Maria Luzia, ajudava a pagar as contas vendendo doces e fazendo faxina. Rui foi o segundo filho do casal.


A vida política começou no Polo Petroquímico de Camaçari, região metropolitana de Salvador, na década de 1980, quando, após entrar para o sindicato dos trabalhadores, passou a frequentar assembleias e a criticar as condições de trabalho da fábrica. Em 1982, se filiou ao Partido dos Trabalhadores -- foi um dos primeiros integrantes do PT e uma das principais lideranças responsáveis pela organização do diretório do partido na Bahia.

Após concluir o curso de instrumentação da Escola Técnica Federal (atual IFBA), ingressou no curso de ciências sociais da Universidade Federal da Bahia (UFBA), em 1983, influenciado pela efervescência do movimento sindical no Brasil, mas não se graduou, porque os horários de estudo se chocavam com os de trabalho. Anos depois, em 1993, decidiu retomar os estudos e mudar de curso. Ingressar em economia, também pela UFBA, área em que hoje é formado.


Em 1995, perdeu a mãe, que havia sido diagnosticada com câncer de mama. Dois anos depois, viveu um momento de alegria, quando nasceu o seu segundo filho, Caio -- a primeira filha, Aline, nasceu em 1986.


Em 2000, foi suplente de vereador na capital baiana e, em 2004, foi eleito vereador da cidade com o maior número de votos da bancada petista. Sete anos depois, em janeiro de 2007, foi convidado pelo então governador da Bahia, Jaques Wagner, Rui assumiu a Secretaria de Relações Institucionais (Serin).



Em 2010, se elegeu como o deputado federal mais votado do PT Bahia (e em 3º lugar no estado, entre todos os candidatos eleitos), com 212.157 votos. Em 2012, se licenciou do cargo de deputado e assumiu a chefia da Casa Civil do estado, no segundo mandato de Jaques Wagner como governador.


No mesmo ano, Rui se casou com Aline Peixoto, atual primeira-dama da Bahia, com quem tem duas filhas, Marina e Malu. Em 2014, ele se elegeu governador do Estado da Bahia com 3,5 milhões de votos.

Campanha
Durante a campanha, iniciada no dia 16 de agosto, quando passou a ser permitida a realização de propaganda eleitoral, como comícios, carreatas, distribuição de material gráfico e propaganda na internet, Rui passou por 144 dos 417 municípios do estado, segundo a assessoria dele.


A campanha foi encerrada no sábado (8), quando esteve junto com o candidato à presidência Fernando Haddad em Feira de Santana, segundo maior cidade do estado, a 100 km da capital.


O petista foi muito criticado durante a campanha por seus adversários por conta, entre outros pontos, da política de segurança pública, em decorrência dos índices de violência no estado, da saúde, sobretudo por causa da fila para vagas na central da regulação, e da educação, sobretudo depois de o MEC (Ministério da Educação) divulgar que o ensino médio do estado ficou em último lugar no Índice de Desenvolvimento da Educação Básica (Ideb).

Apesar das críticas, Rui apareceu liderando todas as pesquisas de intenção de voto divulgadas pelo Ibope. No levantamento feito um dia antes das eleições, por exemplo, Rui apareceu com 77% dos votos válidos.
Ainda durante a campanha, Rui culpou a crise e a falta de apoio federal por promessas do primeiro mandato não cumpridas e prometeu, entre outras coisas, ampliar o contingente da polícia no estado, construir 600 quadras esportivas, laboratórios e biblioteca, para viabilizar o ensino integral nas escolas, expandir para todas as instituições de ensino os cursos profissionalizantes, pra reduzir o desemprego, e avançar na regionalização da saúde, construindo hospitais e serviços de alta complexidade no interior do estado.

CONTINUITA’ FRA LA TERRA E IL CIELO

Noi dovremmo arrivare a questo, e che cosa implica tutto ciò? Una cosa semplicissima: se Dio è questa luce ed io vivo in questa luce, io vivo già un’anticipazione della vita celeste. La vita quaggiù infatti non si oppone mica alla vita del cielo; fra la fede e la visione vi è un cammino continuo. La rottura c’è invece tra la non-fede e la fede, ma tra la fede e la visione c’è un cammino che ci porta alla visione immediata, quando totalmente obliando noi stessi e le cose, tutto ritroviamo in Lui. Infatti, Dio che è creatore non è in opposizione alla creazione, anzi la creazione è in Dio e un giorno conosceremo la creazione più di quanto la conosciamo ora, perchè la conosceremo nella sua sorgente.
Dobbiamo vivere allora il Cristianesimo come economia sacramentale. Quanti sono i sacramenti? Dicono sette; sì, sono sette e pur tuttavia tutto è sacramento – è una sacramentalità che è propria di questo libro, di questo tavolo, degli alberi … – tutto è sacramento perchè tutto per me deve divenire segno di una presenza divina. 
Non vedo che Dio, non conosco che Lui: è la realtà dalla quale veramente io sono totalmente preso, nella quale totalmente vivo. 
Un pesce può vivere fuori dell’acqua? No, dopo un po’ muore, non è vero? Così anche l’uomo: tu devi vivere costantemente nella divina presenza come un pesce nell’acqua. 
Dio deve essere in te, davanti a te, fuori di te: davanti, dietro, sopra, sotto, come dice san Patrizio in una preghiera: “Gesù in me, Gesù fuori di me, Gesù sopra il mio capo, Gesù sotto i miei piedi, Gesù davanti, Gesù alla destra, Gesù alla sinistra, soltanto Gesù, sempre Gesù!”
La luce di Dio deve essere tale da investirvi, penetrarvi, abbracciarvi totalmente, sicchè per me diventa quasi impossibile uscire da questa luce, come per noi è impossibile ora uscire da questo mondo. 
L’anima muore se esce dalla visione di Dio.

Padre James Martin, il gesuita che propone un ponte verso il nulla

Foto: padre James Martin S.J.
Foto: padre James Martin S.J. 
Ho letto il discorso che padre James Martin ha tenuto all’Incontro Mondiale delle Famiglie e sono rimasto molto stupito. Mi chiedo come mai lo abbiano invitato ad un incontro del genere. Nel suo discorso, che potete leggere qui, ripete le parole “persona LGBT”, “parrocchiani LGBT”, “comunità LGBT”, ripetendole infinite volte, come se si riferisse effettivamente ad un altro tipo di persone rispetto a quelle eterosessuali. In realtà, è una posizione molto astuta. E’ un esperto di marketing. Mi fa pensare a quello che una volta disse una persona: “Ripetete cento, mille, un milione di volte una bugia e diventerà una verità”.
A tal proposito, vi propongo un interessante articolo di Adrian Reimers, che critica padre Martin per questa sua classificazione della persona umana sulla base della inclinazione sessuale.
Eccolo nella mia traduzione.


Dalla relazione dell’Arcivescovo Charles Chaput di Philadelphia al Sinodo dei giovani:
Quello che la Chiesa ritiene vero sulla sessualità umana non è un ostacolo. È l’unico vero cammino verso la gioia e l’integrità. Non esiste una cosa come un “Cattolico LGBTQ” o un “Cattolico transgender” o un “Cattolico eterosessuale”, come se i nostri appetiti sessuali definissero chi siamo; come se queste denominazioni descrivessero comunità distinte di diversa ma uguale integrità all’interno della vera comunità ecclesiale, il corpo di Gesù Cristo. Questo non è mai stato vero nella vita della Chiesa, e non è vero ora. Ne consegue che “LGBTQ” e linguaggi simili non dovrebbero essere usati nei documenti della Chiesa, perché il suo uso suggerisce che si tratta di veri e propri gruppi autonomi, e la Chiesa semplicemente non classifica le persone in questo modo.
James Martin, S.J., ha scritto un libro sulla necessità della Chiesa di costruire un ponte verso la “comunità LGBT“. Nel suo discorso all’Incontro Mondiale delle Famiglie di Dublino ha delineato una strategia pratica per la Chiesa a tutti i livelli – universale, diocesano e parrocchiale – per raggiungere questa comunità LGBT con rispetto, compassione e sensibilità. Il problema è che non esiste una tale comunità a cui la Chiesa debba tendere la mano. Padre Martin propone un ponte verso il nulla.
Ogni comunità è formata da un legame comune. La comunità civica è formata geograficamente da tutti coloro che vivono in un certo luogo e sono governati da una serie di leggi. La comunità afro-americana è composta da coloro che hanno la pelle più scura e gli antenati africani, che affrontano sfide comuni e abbastanza particolari come gruppo minoritario. L’ASPCA è una comunità formata da persone che si preoccupano del trattamento e del maltrattamento degli animali. Potremmo anche parlare di una comunità libera di tifosi dei Cubs (una squadra di baseball di Chicago, ndr).
Pertanto, la comunità LGBT, se esiste, è formata da un legame comune. Questo legame consiste nella loro esperienza comune del desiderio sessuale per membri dello stesso sesso. Un uomo che trova donne, e solo donne, sessualmente desiderabili non è omosessuale. Uno che trova il concetto di contatto sessuale con le donne ripugnante, sgradevole o altrimenti poco attraente, ma che desidera tale contatto con altri uomini è “gay”. E così via con lesbiche e bisessuali. Il punto può sembrare eccessivamente ovvio, anche noioso, ma è centrale. I termini indicati da “LGBT” hanno a che fare con la struttura dei desideri e delle esperienze sessuali. Non ci sono altri criteri per distinguere i gay dagli uomini etero, o le lesbiche dalle donne etero. Una persona con utero e seno che si identifica come uomo è transessuale. Se si identifica come donna, non lo è. Ripeto: non ci sono altri criteri per l’identità LGBT. Il legame comune per la comunità LGBT è solo il desiderio o l’inclinazione a godere del contatto sessuale con altre persone dello stesso sesso. Questo ci porta al nocciolo del problema.
Avere un contatto sessuale – per dirla in parole povere, definiamo questo come un qualsiasi tipo di interazione fisica il cui intento e effetto generalmente realizzato è quello di stimolare le parti verso l’orgasmo sessuale – al di fuori del matrimonio (e la Chiesa capisce che questo è possibile solo tra un uomo e una donna) è peccaminoso. Pertanto, ogni attività omosessuale è peccaminosa. Da quanto ho letto, Padre Martin sembra riconoscerlo.
D’altra parte, sperimentare inclinazioni omosessuali non è di per sé peccaminoso, come afferma il Catechismo della Chiesa Cattolica. Tuttavia, questa inclinazione è un’inclinazione al peccato. Non può essere compresa in nessun altro modo. Coloro che appartengono alla demografica LGBT, che agiscano o meno sulla loro omosessualità, vivono con una persistente e chiaramente identificabile tentazione al peccato. Certo, per molti di loro questa è una croce, un pesante fardello. Come dice un amico gay: “Non augurerei questo [l’omosessualità] a nessuno“. Alcuni gay e lesbiche potrebbero trovare l’impulso quasi irresistibilmente al di là del loro potere di controllo. Il saggio pastore e il cristiano caritatevole lo riconosceranno. Tuttavia, la condizione LGBT è segnata dal peccato.
Se la Chiesa riconoscesse una comunità LGBT e si rivolgesse ad essa – costruisse un ponte – rispettandola come comunità, allora questo significherebbe riconoscere una struttura di peccato. Come giustamente insiste padre Martin, ogni cristiano gay, lesbica, bisessuale o transessuale è amato da Dio e in virtù del battesimo è membro della Chiesa. Tuttavia, da ciò non si può concludere che la “comunità LGBT” è parte della Chiesa, perché tale comunità è definita dal peccato, sia nel comportamento che nella meta finale dell’inclinazione. Nient’altro definisce l’appartenenza LGBT.
In particolare, non c’è un insieme di valori superiori caratteristici dei gay che costituisce una “spiritualità gay”, o lo rende un contributo necessario alla nostra cultura. Essere stato vittima di bullismo a scuola, amare le melodie di Broadway o il balletto, o essere un imbranato nella maggior parte degli sport non rende gay, ….anche essere accusato da alcuni di non essere sufficientemente “virile” non rende gay. In altre parole, non c’è nulla nell’esperienza LGBT che sia spirituale. Gli omosessuali non sono fisicamente diversi da quelli che non sono LGBT. Piuttosto, per ragioni che possono essere al di fuori del loro controllo, sono soggetti a una particolare forma di concupiscenza sessuale, alla quale sono obbligati a resistere.
Che cosa deve fare la Chiesa? Deve fare quello che fa per ogni peccatore. La Chiesa aiuta l’alcolista (che non può essere riconosciuto come tale dai suoi vicini seduti nel banco della chiesa) a liberarsi dal bere. Ammonisce gli incalliti chiacchieroni a controllare la loro lingua. Lei disapprova coloro che non siederanno vicino alla persona nera …. o al gay …. in chiesa. Inviterà la persona con una voce forte a leggere durante la Messa o a cantare nel coro. Può anche promuovere gruppi, come Courage (un’associazione che sostiene, secondo l’insegnamento della Chiesa, le persone con inclinazione omosessuale, ndr), che hanno l’obiettivo di aiutare coloro che si identificano come LGBT a vivere liberamente nell’amore, il che significa, tra le altre cose, essere casti.
La Chiesa, che è sacramento dell’amore e della santità di Dio, non può “costruire un ponte” verso una comunità definita dal peccato. Se esiste una comunità LGBT, allora per sua natura è una struttura di peccato. Quello che deve fare è invitare e incoraggiare coloro che si identificano come LGBT a lasciare questa “comunità” e ricevere il suo abbraccio, che è l’abbraccio di Cristo.

          Anti-Semitic Flyers Found at UC Davis      Cache   Translate Page      

Anti-Semitic fliers were found on and around the University of California, Davis, campus Monday, the Sacramento Bee reported.

The fliers depict popular political figures including Senator Dianne Feinstein, Christine Blasey Ford and George Soros with the Star of David on their forehead and Brett Kavanaugh, the recently confirmed Supreme Court justice, normally.

“Every time some anti-white, anti-American, anti-freedom event takes place, you look at it, and it’s Jews behind it,” the flier read.

Gary May, the UC Davis chancellor, issued a statement saying that the fliers had been removed and that the university was working to identify those responsible for posting them.

“The message on these flyers is reprehensible and does not represent who we are as a community,” the statement read. “In addition, the person or persons responsible violated our posting policy.”

Michael Goffman, Associated Students UC Davis president, called the fliers a “disgusting anti Semitic attack” in a Facebook post and promised to work with university administrators on their investigation.

Don Francesco Spinelli. Dalla preghiera alla carità
L'Osservatore Romano
(Ezio Bolis) «Riportai sempre l’impressione di trovarmi in presenza di un santo sacerdote, che consacrava la sua vita alla gloria di Dio e alla salvezza delle anime, e bastava trattenersi con lui per sentire il profumo delle sue sacerdotali virtù. Il suo sguardo angelico, vivo riflesso dell’anima sua, l’affabilità con cui trattava ricchi e poveri, sacerdoti e laici, la carità che traspariva dalle sue parole confermata dalle opere, era per noi una grande scuola che ci stimolava alla santità della vita sacerdotale, della quale don Francesco Spinelli era un vivo esemplare». Questo bel ritratto, vergato il 24 febbraio 1928 da don Fimoli, parroco di Sirone (Lecco), sintetizza mirabilmente la santità di don Spinelli.
Nato a Milano il 14 aprile 1853 da genitori di origine bergamasca, riceve una solida formazione culturale e spirituale. Alunno prima del collegio Gallina di Cremona e poi del Sant’Alessandro di Bergamo, frequenta i corsi ginnasiali e liceali con ottimi risultati, nonostante la salute cagionevole. Attratto dalla vocazione sacerdotale, nel 1871 inizia lo studio della teologia nel seminario di Bergamo, risiedendo presso lo zio, don Pietro Cagliaroli, parroco di Sant’Alessandro in Colonna, popoloso borgo della città orobica. Ordinato sacerdote il 17 ottobre 1875 a Gavarno, residenza estiva di monsignor Pietro Luigi Speranza, vescovo di Bergamo, nello stesso anno si reca a Roma per il giubileo. E nella basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, vive un’intensa esperienza mistica: “vede” una schiera di vergini in adorazione del santissimo sacramento. Tornato a Bergamo, si dedica con generosità all’apostolato: dirige una scuola serale presso l’oratorio di don Luigi Palazzolo; si prodiga in favore dei poveri; insegna religione agli studenti; guida spiritualmente alcune comunità religiose femminili.
Nel 1882, a San Gervasio d’Adda, incontra Caterina Comensoli, giovane donna desiderosa di farsi religiosa. Insieme progettano una nuova congregazione che ha inizio il 15 dicembre 1882 con il nome di Istituto delle suore adoratrici. Per la loro opera i due fondatori traggono ispirazione da esperienze e modelli diversi. Per esempio, c’è una forte sintonia con la piccola casa delle divina provvidenza, creata da Giuseppe Cottolengo a Torino: stessa fiducia sconfinata nel Signore, perché «a chi straordinariamente confida, Dio straordinariamente provvede»; stesso amore per Gesù presente nel santissimo sacramento, adorato in ogni casa dell’istituto. Don Spinelli è uomo capace di discernimento; sa leggere i segni dei tempi e struttura la famiglia religiosa con tratti di genialità e di innovazione: non semplice ospizio, ma un’istituzione flessibile che comprende anche una vera e propria attività imprenditoriale, quella della produzione tessile, per dare lavoro e quindi promuovere la dignità di soggetti fragili che difficilmente la troverebbero altrove.
Oltre alle costituzioni, per conoscere la spiritualità di don Spinelli sono importanti sia la ricca corrispondenza personale con le sue suore sia le lettere circolari che egli invia loro dal 1884 fino a pochi mesi prima di morire. Di grande interesse sono pure le conversazioni eucaristiche (1886): una trentina di meditazioni dal tono mistico, nate dall’adorazione davanti al tabernacolo. Da lì, le suore adoratrici sono invitate ad attingere quella «accesa carità» richiamata anche dal colore rosso dello scapolare che indossano per l’adorazione, in memoria del sangue scaturito dal cuore di Gesù, presente nell’Eucaristia.
Il nuovo istituto si sviluppa rapidamente: nelle loro case le religiose accolgono poveri, malati persone con gravi handicap fisici e psichici. Per una serie di gravi equivoci, mancati appoggi e qualche leggerezza amministrativa, il giovane e fiorente istituto subisce un drammatico tracollo finanziario e nel 1889 don Spinelli è costretto a farsi da parte e a lasciare Bergamo. Alle suore che lo salutano in lacrime, egli mostra le tasche rovesciate e dice: «Non porto con me un centesimo; sono fallito, ma non ho tradito; piuttosto altri hanno tradito la mia buona fede. Perdono di cuore. Pregate, state unite e l’istituto continuerà». Accolto con benevolenza da monsignor Geremia Bonomelli, si trasferisce a Rivolta d’Adda, nella diocesi di Cremona, separandosi a malincuore da madre Comensoli, rimasta a Bergamo con un gruppo di consorelle che assumeranno il nome di suore sacramentine. Le religiose che invece scelgono di stare con lui continueranno a chiamarsi suore adoratrici del santissimo sacramento, votandosi all’adorazione perpetua e al servizio dei fratelli più emarginati, respinti da altri enti e istituzioni.
Da vero uomo spirituale qual è, don Spinelli offre una proposta di vita religiosa senza fronzoli, tutta centrata sull’amore di Dio e del prossimo, alimentata da una preghiera incessante. Egli vive l’adorazione nella prospettiva indicata oggi da Papa Francesco: «la santità è fatta di apertura abituale alla trascendenza, che si esprime nella preghiera e nell’adorazione» (Gaudete et exsultate 147); d’altra parte «la preghiera è preziosa se alimenta una donazione quotidiana d’amore» (ibidem 104). Le istruzioni di don Spinelli alle suore sono un vero programma di vita spirituale e manifestano una straordinaria delicatezza d’animo: «Procurate che [...] trovino in voi il sollievo più confortante e nessuno possa dire male di voi, anzi tutti siano costretti a benedire i sacrifici della Suora, che non fa distinzione fra ricchi e poveri, fra vecchi e giovani, che perdona le offese e le ingratitudini, ricambia con tratti più generosi, che diventa occhio al cieco, piede allo zoppo, madre all’orfanello e derelitto, e consola le agonie con il sorriso delle caste e immortali speranze del cielo; ella è tutta per tutti, specie negli infelici, vede con l’occhio della fede e coi palpiti della carità l’oggetto del suo più puro amore; vede, ama Gesù» (Lettera circolare, marzo 1908). Citando ancora Papa Francesco, si può dire che a don Spinelli «né la preghiera, né l’amore di Dio, né la lettura del Vangelo diminuirono la passione e l’efficacia della sua dedizione al prossimo» (Gaudete et exsultate 100).
Circondato da vasta fama di santità, don Spinelli muore il 6 febbraio 1913. Viene beatificato da Giovanni Paolo II il 21 giugno 1992, nel santuario mariano di Caravaggio. Tra i suoi estimatori c’è anche Giovanni XXIII. Il 30 agosto 1958, due mesi prima di diventare Papa, a Rivolta d’Adda annota: «Fui ammirato della casa generalizia delle suore adoratrici fondate dal ven. Francesco Spinelli presso la cui bella tomba fui ben contento di pregare. Come il Signore lavora i suoi santi!». Tre anni dopo, ormai Pontefice, appunta ancora: «Presiedetti alla Congregazione dei Riti per le pratiche delle due cause di P. Leonardo Murialdo e della Madre Comensoli. Mi accontentai di esprimere il voto che il processo per la Comensoli non chiuda del tutto la porta a quello per il P. Francesco Spinelli» (21 marzo 1961).

          Late Seventies Mets Pitcher: Kevin Kobel (1978-1980)      Cache   Translate Page      
Kevin Richard Kobel was born October 2, 1953 in Buffalo New York. 

In 1971 after graduating from St. Francis High at Colden, New York he was quickly drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 10th round of that year’s draft.

The six foot lefthander won 12 games at AA Shreveport in 1973 & was brought right up to the big leagues for a September cup of coffee.


Kobel was just 19 years old when he made his MLB debut on September 8th, in New York against the A.L. team. It didn’t turn out that well as he got pounded for four earned runs over two innings pitched. He made his first start on September 28th, going six innings allowing four runs earning the loss. He made just two appearances that season.

With a good Spring Training in 1974 he was given a spot in the Brewers rotation alongside Jim Slaton, Jim Colborn, Clyde Wright & Billy Champion. Kobel went 6-14 on the year, with two shut outs posting a 3.99 ERA for the 5th place Brewers team. Arm troubles set him back & he only pitched seven games in the Pacific Coast League at AAA Sacramento in 1975.

In 1976 Kobel returned to pitch 32 games at AAA Spokane going 7-12 but struggled with a 5.50 ERA. He was brought up to the Brewers in September pitching three games, two of them against the AL New York team. He took his only decision, a loss, on September 17th after blowing a save. The next year he spent the entire season at AAA Spokane, improving to 12-6 with a 4.94 ERA making two saves.

Kobel looked like he belonged on the Welcome Back Kotter television show, teaching the sweat hogs with his beard & puffy hair.

But instead the Gabe Kaplin look alike, worked hard to get back to pitching.

The New York Mets gave him a chance in 1978 as he began the year at AAA Tidewater, going 2-1 with a 2.42 ERA. He got called up to a weak Mets staff at the end of May. Kobel made his Mets debut on May 20th finishing off a 9-4 loss at Shea Stadium. In his first nine appearances the Mets lost every game, although Kobel was only the losing pitcher of record in one of them.

On July 8th he got a start against the Chicago Cubs & pitched six shutout innings to earn his first victory in four seasons. In early September he threw a complete game shutout against the Pittsburgh Pirates, allowing just one run on two hits.

On October 1st, he won the last game of the year, allowing only one run through seven innings of work at Wrigley Field in Chicago. On the season he would go 5-6 with a 2.91 ERA, getting 11 starts and making 21 relief appearances.

In 1979 he began the season in late April with two relief appearances. He was then thrown into the starting rotation and pitched well. He was 2-0 that month, going into the 8th inning three times while never allowing more than two runs in any start.

Unfortunately he only got credit with one win in those games. On June 16th, Kobel threw a three hit shutout against the Atlanta Braves at Shea Stadium. It turned out to be his last really good outing of his career.

The rest of the way he went 3-6 for the last place Mets, finishing the year at 6-8 with a 3.54 ERA. He only struck out 67 batters while walking 46 in 162 innings pitched.

1980 proved to be the end of the line for Kobel, after 14 games he was 1-4, giving up 19 earned runs in 24 innings. He was sent back down to AAA Tidewater in mid June & never got back to the big leagues.

In his six season career he went 18-34 with 205 strikeouts in 405 innings pitched, posting a 3.88 ERA in 115 games.

cover image"Introducing the first book in the new pulse-pounding Sacramento series from New York Times bestselling author Karen Rose. FBI Special Agent Gideon Reynolds did not have a conventional upbringing. Raised in a cult in Northern California, his mother smuggled him out when he was thirteen, and he never saw her again. It is not a bit of history he is keen on sharing, but being guarded has not gotten him any closer to what he really wants: a family. Daisy Dawson lived a sheltered childhood. Her father, a former military man, believed that the woman he loved and her daughter were being hunted, so he took extreme measures to keep his family safe. But despite his best efforts, Daisy is done being scared. New to Sacramento, she is ready to jump headfirst into life--until she is attacked one night. Gideon is caught unawares by Daisy, who is unlike any victim he has ever met. But the attacker is far from finished, and tracking him will threaten to pull Gideon back to the world he fought so hard to leave.."-- Provided by publisher.

          María Desposorios (Catalina) Irigoyen Echegaray, Beata      Cache   Translate Page      

Por: . | Fuente: siervasdemariacastilla.com

Religiosa

Martirologio Romano: En Madrid, España, Beata María Desposorios (María Catalina) Irigoyen Echegaray, religiosa profesa de la Congregación de las Siervas de María Ministras de la Eucaristía. ( 1918)

Fecha de beatificación: 29 de octubre de 2011, durante el pontificado de S.S. Benedicto XVI.

Sor María Desposorios (en el siglo María Catalina Irigoyen Echegaray) nace en pleno siglo XIX, en España, en el corazón de Navarra - Pamplona - el 25 de noviembre de 1848 de los distinguidos, acomodados y muy cristianos padres: D. Tiburcio Irigoyen y Dña. Leonarda Echegaray. Fue la última de ocho hermanos y gemela del séptimo. Al día siguiente de su nacimiento recibió el santo Sacramento del Bautismo en la Parroquia de la Catedral de Pamplona con el nombre de María Catalina. Fue su madrina de pila Dña. Mercedes Irigoyen, natural de Errazu.

Igual que una planta nacida en un ambiente religioso y sano, regenerada con las aguas bautismales, crece y se desarrolla con normalidad en un proceso ascético-místico; oxigenada con la recepción de los Sacramentos, oración y mortificación, se hace en ella cada vez más consciente y creciente el “Amor de Dios difundido en su corazón por el Espíritu Santo que le fue dado” (Rom. 5,5).

De este modo transcurre su infancia y juventud. Es en esta época cuando oye la llamada del Señor y aumenta en su corazón el deseo de ser toda de Dios.

En 1878 solicita la admisión en el Instituto de las Siervas de María, fundado por Santa María Soledad; mas al enterarse ésta de que María Catalina tiene familiares enfermos, le aconseja que primero cuide de los suyos, si de verdad desea dedicar su vida al cuidado de los enfermos en sus domicilios. María Catalina espera, sabe esperar con paciencia, está pronta a cumplir la voluntad del Señor.

Solucionada la situación familiar, María Catalina queda libre y decidida lo deja todo, respondiendo con valentía dice sí a su Señor. Ingresó en la Casa de las Siervas de María de Pamplona el 31 de Diciembre de 1881 a la edad de 33 años.

Vistió el santo Hábito en el Noviciado de las Siervas de María en Madrid el día 12 de Marzo de 1882, aún no estaba terminado el edificio de la Casa Madre - Madrid. Durante el Noviciado, se mostró silenciosa, recogida y muy escondida con Cristo en Dios. Emite su profesión Temporal el 14 de Mayo de 1883 y la Profesión Perpetua el 15 de julio de 1889.

Sor Mª Catalina no confía en sus fuerzas, sabe de quien se fía “sea de mí lo que fuere, mi único ideal es amar a Dios sin interrupción hasta el fin de mi existencia”, decía Sor Mª Catalina

Madrid es el escenario de su vida hasta su muerte. Cristo es el centro de su ser, desea tener sus mismos sentimientos, obrar según el querer de Dios. Como planta transformada en flor, fue esparciendo el perfume de buenas obras, deshojándose, desgastándose por el Señor, en el servicio a los enfermos en sus domicilios, derrochando caridad exquisita, pronta y alegre, con paciencia, esmero y abnegación. “Con tal presteza y amabilidad acudía a las peticiones y necesidades de los enfermos que muchos de ellos la consideraban como madre amorosa y muchas familias la reclamaban como a su enfermera ideal”.”.

Después de 23 años dedicados al servicio a los enfermos, pasa a ocuparse de la recogida de donativos para la subsistencia de la Obra durante 7 años. Al final de su vida se ve reducida a la más absoluta incapacidad; acepta la voluntad del Padre que la sujeta a la cruz de la enfermedad para asemejarla a su Hijo Crucificado. Muere el 10 de octubre de 1918, dejando tras de sí grande fama de santidad.

Su vida, a imitación de la Virgen, Sierva del Señor, fue de entrega y disponibilidad, viviendo las actitudes del Divino Maestro - Jesús - "El Hijo del Hombre no ha venido a que le sirvan sino a servir" y Sor Mª Catalina repetía: “Sólo sirvo para servir”.

El milagro para la beatificación:

El hecho, estudiado y comprobado, es la curación rápida y sin secuelas del Dr. Luís Fernando Padilla Gómez quien presentó, súbitamente, con fecha 24 de octubre de 2004, una hidrocefalia causada por un hidroma cerebral que se complicó posteriormente con una meningitis, anoxia cerebral, hemorragia e infartos cerebrales.

ORACIÓN
PARA OBTENER GRACIAS
POR INTERCESIÓN DE LA BEATA MARÍA CATALINA

Señor Jesús,
médico de las almas y de los cuerpos
que llamaste a Sor María Catalina
a consagrarse a ti como Sierva de María
para que entregada al servicio de los enfermos
fuera para ellos,
presencia de tu amor que fortalece y sana.

Concédenos esa unión contigo
que llenó y movió toda su vida
y alcánzanos por su intercesión
la gracia que hoy te pedimos
para tu mayor gloria.
Amén

          Angela María Truszkowska, Beata      Cache   Translate Page      
Ángela María nació el 16 de mayo de 1825, en Kalisz (Polonia). En el bautismo recibió el nombre de Sofía Camila. Su familia se trasladó a Varsovia en 1837. Desde su infancia demostró una piedad profunda: participaba todos los días en la misa, recibía con frecuencia los sacramentos, realizaba vigilias de oración y visitaba con asiduidad el Santísimo Sacramento: todo esto desarrolló en ella una espiritualidad intensa.

En un viaje que realizó atravesando Alemania, Sofía, iluminada por el Señor, durante un rato de oración en la catedral de Colonia, intuyó su vocación a estar entre los pobres y necesitados y a servir en ellos a Cristo con la oración y el sacrificio. Esta inspiración la llevó a ser miembro de la sociedad de San Vicente de Paúl. Durante el día trabajaba sin descanso por los pobres y por la noche oraba constantemente, buscando la voluntad de Dios en ella. A la edad de 29 años, descubrió su camino: comenzó a buscar y a ayudar a los niños abandonados de los barrios bajos de Varsovia y a los ancianos sin casa. Con la ayuda económica de su padre y el apoyo de su prima Clotilde comenzó a hacerse cargo de seis niños. De esta forma atrajo a muchas voluntarias y floreció el instituto fundado por ella.

Sofía se hizo miembro de la Tercera Orden de san Francisco y tomó el nombre de Ángela. El 21 de noviembre de 1855, ante el icono de María, su prima y ella se consagraron a hacer la voluntad de su Hijo: éste fue el comienzo de la comunidad de las religiosas Felicianas, o de San Félix de Cantalicio. La madre Ángela determinó como ideal de su congregación: que en todo y por todo Dios sea conocido, amado y glorificado. Las religiosas dirigían a las laicas terciarias, instruían a los convertidos, visitaban las prisiones, y administraban también centros sociales rurales. Después del fracaso de la insurrección de 1863, muchos de estos centros se convirtieron en hospitales, donde las religiosas curaban a los heridos.

La comunidad fue suprimida por el gobierno ruso en 1864, pero continuó en secreto bajo la guía espiritual de la fundadora.

A los 44 años, durante su tercer mandato de superiora general, la madre Ángela se tuvo que retirar de la actividad de su congregación a causa de una enfermedad, pero siguió viva su dedicación a las religiosas. Murió después de 30 años de sufrimiento, devorada por el cáncer, el 10 de octubre de 1899, en presencia de las religiosas. Fue beatificada por Juan Pablo II el 18 de abril de 1993.

          ASIA/COREA DEL SUR - El cardenal Yeom: “Oramos para poder enviar sacerdotes y celebrar los sacramentos en Corea del Norte”      Cache   Translate Page      


Seúl – “Me complace y reconforta saber que, durante su visita al Vaticano la próxima semana, el Presidente Moon Jae-in llevará consigo el mensaje del líder norcoreano Kim Jong-un, quien desea invitar al papa Francisco a Pyongyang”. Así lo declaró el cardenal Andrew Yeom Soo-jung, arzobispo de Seúl, en una nota enviada a la Agencia Fides, a propósito de la invitación al pontífice, que será presentada durante la gira europea del Presidente Mooon Jae-in, en Italia y en el Vaticano los días 17 y 18 de octubre.

El Cardenal Yeom expresó a Fides: “El santo padre siempre se ha preocupado y se preocupa por la paz en la península coreana; e ha incluido en sus oraciones a los coreanos, siempre que ha habido eventos importantes en la historia reciente. Espero que estos esfuerzos ayuden a construir una paz genuina en la península de Corea. Sobre todo, como administrador apostólico de Pyongyang, oro sinceramente para que en los días venideros podamos enviar sacerdotes y religiosos al Norte y celebrar juntos los Sacramentos”.

Actualmente, a la comunidad católica de Corea del Norte la llaman comúnmente la "Iglesia del silencio" porque, desde 1948, el régimen norcoreano comenzó a eliminar todos los rastros de la presencia de la Fe, arrasando iglesias y confinando al personal eclesiástico y a los creyentes en campos de concentración.

En Corea del Norte había, hasta 1950, más de 55.000 creyentes y 57 iglesias construidas, con misioneros, escuelas católicas y florecientes actividades pastorales. Hoy en día no hay obispos, sacerdotes o religiosos católicos. A partir de 1989, con el colapso del bloque comunista, se produjo un cambio en la política religiosa del régimen que reconoció una "Asociación católica" y una "Federación cristiana", a las cuales se adhieren unos tres miles fieles controlados oficialmente por el gobierno. Los sacerdotes del Sur que han estado en Corea del Norte en los últimos años, siguen convencidos de la existencia de muchos otros hombres y mujeres, en el país, que todavía viven su fe en Cristo de una manera íntima y privada.

La sesta e la settima congregazione generale del sinodo. Dare fiducia ai giovani
L'Osservatore Romano
Dall’ascolto al discernimento: questa è la strada intrapresa dai padri sinodali che dal pomeriggio di martedì 9 stanno prendendo in esame la seconda parte dell’Instrumentum laboris: «Interpretare - Fede e discernimento vocazionale». Come aiutare i giovani, fra le mille voci che li bombardano nella società contemporanea, a distinguere quella di Dio che li chiama a essere protagonisti della loro vita e della vita della Chiesa? Occorre esercitare la delicata e difficile arte dell’accompagnamento. Occorre, ha detto il cardinale Raï nella meditazione all’inizio della settima congregazione generale, la mattina di mercoledì 10, il «coraggio di passare da una pastorale “per i giovani” a una pastorale “con i giovani”, dare loro fiducia».
Ed è stata proprio la parola “fiducia” il filo conduttore della mattinata, condotta in assenza del Pontefice impegnato nell’udienza generale. È stato il cardinale segretario generale Baldisseri a guidare la preghiera mattutina dei 256 padri presenti in aula. Presidente delegato di turno era il cardinale Sako.
Prima degli interventi di 20 padri sinodali e 8 uditori, il segretario generale ha annunciato l’esito finale della votazione svoltasi il pomeriggio precedente per eleggere i membri della commissione per la redazione del documento finale: i cardinali Turkson per l’Africa, Aguiar Retes per l’America e Gracias per l’Asia, l’arcivescovo Forte per l’Europa e il vescovo Comensoli per l’Oceania. Il cardinale Baldisseri ha spiegato che ne faranno parte anche egli stesso, il relatore generale, i due segretari speciali, e tre membri di nomina pontificia: l’arcivescovo Shevchuk, padre Awi Mello e don Gonzalo Redondo.
Nel corso degli interventi i padri, chiamati a individuare le migliori vie per l’accompagnamento dei giovani, si sono detti consapevoli che i giovani cercano una Chiesa entusiasta, viva, col fuoco dello Spirito, chiedendosi se davvero essa oggi ha queste caratteristiche. Chi accompagna deve avere consapevolezza dei propri limiti — compresi i peccati che scandalizzano e allontanano le persone — per sapere accettare i limiti dei giovani e insieme costruire una nuova primavera nella vita della Chiesa. Non serve essere simpatici per conquistare i giovani, ma empatici per comprenderli e camminare insieme a loro.
È stata sottolineata la necessità di fare proposte esigenti, essere audaci come i giovani sono audaci e generosi. Soprattutto non va dimenticato che il centro è sempre l’incontro personale con Cristo, in particolare nella Scrittura e nei sacramenti. E in questo cammino i giovani non sono solo il futuro, ma il presente.
Anche i giovani uditori intervenuti hanno chiesto fiducia. Consapevoli di essere bisognosi dell’aiuto di maestri coerenti, che non prendano decisioni al loro posto, hanno auspicato accompagnatori che non scandalizzino la Chiesa con il peccato, ma scandalizzino il mondo con la santità.
In precedenza, nel pomeriggio di martedì 9, si era svolta la sesta congregazione alla presenza di Papa Francesco. Sotto la presidenza del cardinale delegato di turno Ribat, vi hanno partecipato 257 padri sinodali: quindici sono stati gli interventi programmati e otto liberi, compreso uno del Pontefice.
Prima degli interventi, il relatore generale ha elencato alcuni «nuclei generativi» individuati nel corso dei lavori: la diversità dei contesti culturali, l’apporto anche in termini teologici di un ascolto empatico dei giovani, vari aspetti delle nuove culture giovanili, come i rapporti intergenerazionali, il ruolo delle emozioni, il mondo digitale, la via della bellezza e lo sport; ma anche il fenomeno degli abusi in tutte le loro declinazioni, il ruolo paradigmatico dei giovani migranti, i temi riguardanti il corpo, l’affettività, la sessualità, l’esperienza religiosa dei giovani nella famiglia, nella liturgia e nel silenzio. Il cardinale da Rocha ha spiegato che in questa tappa di lavoro appena conclusa sono stati raccolti, oltre agli interventi dei padri sinodali nelle prime congregazioni generali e le 14 relazioni dei circoli, anche 316 modi, da un minimo di 6 a un massimo di 60 per circolo minore.
È seguita la testimonianza della giovane uditrice slovacca Viktòria Žolnovà, del Group leader and voluntier for youth. Proveniente dall’arcieparchia greco-cattolica di Prešov, si occupa di pastorale giovanile da oltre dieci anni. Ha raccontato la propria esperienza personale, passata attraverso il lavoro in una piccola azienda, l’emergere di una certa insoddisfazione e il bisogno di cercare “nuove opportunità”. Quindi lo studio dell’inglese e del catechismo all’estero, uniti all’accompagnamento spirituale di un sacerdote, hanno alimentato la percezione che Dio la stesse chiamando a qualcosa di nuovo.
Successivamente un padre sinodale ha sollevato il problema della disaffezione alla confessione e l’auspicio che una corretta pastorale possa portare a una consapevolezza piena e feconda della celebrazione del sacramento. Quindi è stata presentata l’esperienza vissuta da un gruppo della pastorale giovanile vocazionale. Obiettivo: l’assunzione di un’identità adulta di creatura e figlio di Dio.
Un padre sinodale ha parlato della sfida di fare compagnia ai giovani per aiutarli a porsi e a condividere tra loro le domande giuste, quelle importanti e fondamentali davanti a un mondo diviso, al vuoto interiore e al desiderio di una vita piena e felice. A questo proposito, è stato fatto notare che la sfida attuale, in un momento in cui la Chiesa è in crisi di credibilità per scandali, abusi, e divisioni interne, si viva la tentazione di costruire una Chiesa che abolisca l’inquietudine e che vuole vivere di certezze chiare e distinte. Il rischio è di desiderare una generazione di giovani “duri e puri” che conoscano tutte le risposte. Tuttavia, la Chiesa è chiamata a svegliare i cuori e non i muscoli. Da qui l’invito a riflettere sulla formazione nei seminari e sulla necessità di insegnare il discernimento.
Negli interventi liberi è stato ricordato che, durante la trattazione del tema dell’accompagnamento specifico verso la maturità dell’amore, è stato fatto un riferimento al catecumenato per il matrimonio. Si è riconosciuto che in questo la Chiesa e pastori non sono stati all’altezza e si è verificata una certa incoscienza, una mancanza di responsabilità. Del resto, è stato rilevato, non si può ridurre la tenerezza dell’amore per sempre a una sorta di “clericalizzazione” del matrimonio, a una cerimonia più o meno formale che non tenga conto della maturità. Insomma, è necessario un catecumenato, perché l’amore è una cosa talmente grande che non si può vendere a buon mercato.
Infine è stata proposta da altri intervenuti una serie di iniziative perché i giovani rimangano affascinati da Gesù e scoprano in lui la verità esistenziale della loro vita. Prima fra tutti, la preghiera e in particolare l’adorazione eucaristica. Seguita dall’entrare in contatto con Gesù toccando la carne della sua umanità nelle pieghe fisiche e spirituali di tanti loro coetanei che soffrono. Riguardo alla preghiera, da più parti è stata richiamata la sua importanza per i giovani e con i giovani, in quanto moltissimi ragazzi non hanno mai visto i genitori o i loro familiari pregare.

          Juvenile Rapists and Individualized Consideration      Cache   Translate Page      
Today's News Scan noted Michele Hanisee's post for the Los Angeles Association of Deputy District Attorneys regarding Cal. Gov. Jerry Brown's signing of SB 1391. As Sacramento Bee columnist Marcos Bretón explained last month, this ill-considered legislation exempts everyone under 16 from transfer to adult court even for the more depraved offenses. Note how the calls for individualized consideration switch on and off depending on which way the default rule falls. In capital sentencing, sentencing of juveniles, and transfer of juveniles to adult court, we are first told that consideration of individual circumstances is essential to justice -- when the alternative is the harsher option -- and then we are told that a bright-line rule is essential when that line is drawn on the more lenient side.I believe that a strong argument can be made that SB 1391 is invalid as an unauthorized amendment of Proposition 57. Stay tuned.

          ASKING ALEXANDRIA Releases Video For Acoustic Version Of 'Alone In A Room'      Cache   Translate Page      
U.K. metalcore act ASKING ALEXANDRIA has released a brand new video for the beautifully stripped down, acoustic version of its third Top 10 radio hit "Alone In A Room" (currently No. 8 on the Active Rock chart). "Alone In A Room" is the second single from ASKING ALEXANDRIA's self-titled fifth studio album, which was released last December via Sumerian Records. To date, the song has racked up a whopping 13.7 million streams on Spotify, 28 million global streams, five million YouTube views and spent five weeks at No. 1 on Sirius XM's "Big Uns" countdown. The acoustic version of the track was released as a B-side to the single and has received 765,000 streams to date. Speaking about the gorgeous new video and the acoustic reworking of "Alone In A Room", guitarist Ben Bruce says: "In celebration of 'Alone In A Room' smashing into the Top 10 at radio last week, we decided to record a video for our acoustic rendition of 'Alone In A Room'! This has been such an incredible album cycle for us so far and we have barely even started! Thank you all so much for your love and support. This is for us, this is for you! We love you!" ASKING ALEXANDRIA is currently on the road with GODSMACK and SHINEDOWN and will play the Aftershock festival in Sacramento this weekend. The band also announced last week that they will join SHINEDOWN and PAPA ROACH for the "Attention Attention" tour in early 2019. Combining the innovation of modern active rock with the traditional attitude of the culture's trailblazers. ASKING ALEXANDRIA has now firmly cemented its place in the upper echelons of modern rock. They've shared the stage with GUNS N' ROSES, GREEN DAY, ALICE IN CHAINS, AVENGED SEVENFOLD and SLIPKNOT; co-headlined with BLACK VEIL BRIDES; joined Warped Tour and Rockstar Mayhem; played every major rock festival in the world; and headlined sold-out theater tours. Their singles "The Final Episode" and "Not The American Average" were both certified gold by the RIAA for sales in excess of 500,000 copies each. The music videos for those two singles alone amassed over 100 million views on YouTube. Their third full-length album, "From Death To Destiny" (2013), shot to No. 1 on the rock and metal charts in the U.K. and cracked the Top 5 of the Billboard 200 in the United States upon its release.

          California’s Almond Harvest Has Created a Golden Opportunity for Bee Thieves      Cache   Translate Page      

This story was originally published by Reveal and appears here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration.

The crime scene was a mess of boxes, some half-assembled, others scattered across patches of dried grass and partially gouged to raw wood. The victims scrambled about looking for food and water. There were thousands of them. Maybe millions.

Detective Isaac Torres watched the action from the air-conditioned safety of his unmarked truck. In five years investigating rural farm crime, he’s seen a lot: stolen construction equipment and copper wire, hay thieves, cargo heists.

“You name it, we pretty much cover it, if there’s any type of ag nexus to it,” he said.

But what he was looking at now, in this scrubby field 10 miles southeast of downtown Fresno, California, was something else entirely.

“What we had here was a chop shop, but of beehives,” Torres said. “You had some beehives that were alive, and you had some hives that were dead. You had hives that were basically cut up: Tops of boxes were over here on this side of the field, and the other parts of the box are on the other side.”

article-image

As a member of the Agricultural Crimes Task Force for the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office, Torres knew that bees have become big business in California—that they are an essential ingredient in the state’s yearly almond harvest; that three-quarters of America’s domesticated supply is trucked into the state each winter and rented out. He knew how valuable the insects have become—to farmers, yes, but especially to thieves, who in recent years have grown bolder, greedier.

On this hot afternoon in April 2017, he also knew to keep his distance. It’s one thing to inspect stolen property; it’s quite another to get mobbed by it and pumped with venom. And this property was zipping chaotically through the cloudless sky, unhealthy and irate. Even cracking a window surely would have spelled disaster, he said—“like trying to put toothpaste back in the tube.”

Torres had been summoned here by Alexa Pavlov, a Missouri-based beekeeper who sat in her own rental car nearby. Two days earlier, she’d learned that a $50,000 cluster of her hives, recently stolen from a neighboring county, might well be sitting in this very field. She’d dropped everything, boarded a red-eye to California and driven straight from the airport into the state’s agricultural epicenter. She couldn’t afford not to.

Groggy and impatient, she stepped out of her car and set off toward the boxes. Torres watched in horror as she marched into a haze of bees, poking through hives and snapping photos. Before long, she returned with shots of her initials etched onto the bottom of a pallet—proof that her property was here.

Nearby, Pavel Tveretinov, a thin 51-year-old Sacramento man, was moving through the field, tending to hives in a protective suit. Pavlov confronted him, she later said, and he denied stealing anything. Before long, deputies from Madera County, where Pavlov’s bees had first gone missing, arrived on the scene. They doubted Tveretinov’s account and put him in jail that evening.

Word of the discovery, and the arrest, spread quickly through America’s small commercial beekeeping community. In the days that followed, Torres’s department received dozens of calls from across the country. Beekeepers wanted to know whether their hives were among those recovered—at this chop shop or at three others authorities found later, connected to Tveretinov and alleged accomplice Vitaliy Yeroshenko.

“Some of them were like, ‘Well, I had beehives that were stolen three years ago,’” Torres said. “Some five years ago.”

By the time Torres and his team got a handle on the totals, they were dealing with 2,500 hives, worth nearly one million dollars, some stolen from orchards hundreds of miles apart. This was much more than an impulsive theft: It was the largest bee heist any of them had ever heard of. Perhaps the largest in U.S. history.

article-image

Leave any city in the Central Valley, heading in essentially any direction, and it won’t be long before you hit the almond orchards. They stretch for miles, in neat rows of alien emerald, butting up against dust-beaten truck stops and boxy McMansions. Some host campaign signs for local politicians; others are cross-hatched by roads whose names are simply letters because no one, evidently, had the time to get fancy.

California’s total almond acreage has nearly tripled in the past 20 years, a spike due in large part to foreign demand. At the moment, there are about one million acres of nut-bearing trees in the state, with an additional 330,000 on track to start producing over the next four years. The trees produce well over two billion pounds of nuts per year, and they’re sucking down the valley’s aquifers at a rapid pace.

Such growth has driven a near-manic demand for honeybees, which are crucial for what has become the largest managed annual pollination event in the world.

Hives have never been more valuable. Every almond farmer needs two healthy colonies per acre of trees at an average seasonal rental price of around $185 per colony, and that number is expected to climb in the coming years. When everything goes right for a beekeeper, especially one with thousands of well-maintained hives, winter in California presents an enormous money-making opportunity.

article-image

The rental process works like this: Toward the end of January, millions of hives arrive in California from all over the country. The bees live in boxes, which themselves are stored in stacks and covered with finely woven mesh during transit. By the time they reach a staging area—sometimes a large field not far from where the bees will be put to work—they’ve been bumping around on the back of a flatbed for several days. Almond farmers inspect the hives, which are then moved into orchards by beekeepers and “brokers” who help manage the transaction.

There are inherent perils to hanging a business on the collective health of a fragile and disease-prone insect. Bee populations are notoriously unstable, and the animals’ health and population strength are constantly under threat. Even though the total population of domesticated honeybees has increased around 45 percent worldwide since 1961, the proportion of agricultural crops that depend on pollinators is growing at a rate closer to 300 percent, stoking fears in certain scientific circles of a global pollination crisis. Wild bee populations, too, are facing steep declines.

In California, “we’ve had a sufficient supply” of bees thus far for each almond harvest, said Bob Curtis, the Almond Board of California’s associate director of agricultural affairs. “But every year before the bloom, I am personally concerned. Are we walking a fine line here?”

Beekeepers certainly do. On top of larger environmental concerns, the price of maintaining healthy hives can fluctuate wildly, depending on a host of risks, including pesticide exposure, mites, drought, and colony collapse disorder, a mysterious epidemic in which worker bees suddenly abandon their queen, leaving her to die. Dealing with these issues means incurring unexpected, sometimes astronomical costs. During a drought year, when pollen and nectar are in short supply and must be artificially supplemented, it’s possible to spend $200,000 more than anticipated just to keep the bees alive.

“It’s death by a thousand cuts,” said David Bradshaw, a lifelong beekeeper in the San Joaquin Valley. His base of operations, in a lot behind his home in Visalia, is typical for a commercial apiarist: There’s a small fleet of trucks, tankers of man-made sugar mixtures, and dozens of bee boxes stacked under a patch of sparse shade. Hundreds more, he said, are deposited across the state.

“My wife comes from a background of a CFO of a school district,” he said. “They have budgets, and they have things that tell where you’re supposed to end up at the end of the year. She asked me, ‘So what’s your budget?’ Like I have one!”

Many of the beekeepers who bring hives to California from Louisiana, Florida, and elsewhere live nomadic lives. Their entire year is spent preparing hundreds of thousands of delicate insects for a nonstop, cross-country trek, followed by a monthlong bonanza of hard labor in an unfamiliar environment. The trips are difficult on the animals, which are especially susceptible to heat and sickness during transit. An unexpected fire or truck tipover (of which there are surprisingly many) can wipe out millions of them—along with a beekeeper’s entire livelihood.

The one certainty: “You can’t just leave your bees in one place anymore,” said Denise Qualls, a bee broker who connects apiarists and almond farmers. “The bees come to California for the almonds. They stay for a month or two, then they go to Oregon and Washington for apples. They’ll go to Texas for whatever honey flow is there. They’ll go to Louisiana. They’ll go up to Maine. They’ll end up in North or South Dakota.”

The whole process can be exhausting, repetitive, and expensive.

“You get out of almond pollination, then your major goal for the next 11 and a half months is making sure your bees are healthy enough to go into almond pollination again,” said Charley Nye, manager of U.C. Davis’ Harry H. Laidlaw Jr. Honey Bee Research Facility.

The almond harvest, he added, is “a weird driver” of market forces—one “that’s kind of pushing everything in one direction. We’re trying to bend the honeybees around it.”

The economics of stealing beehives is a lot like the economics of stealing any high-value item, such as jewelry or electronics, with the main difference being accessibility. During the almond harvest, hives in California’s orchards rarely are protected by alarms or even fences, and equipping individual boxes with GPS trackers is prohibitively expensive for most. To ensure the best pollination results, beekeepers usually place their boxes just off remote roads, hidden by trees, miles from so much as a streetlight. It’s perfectly common for thousands of dollars’ worth of bees to sit largely unattended for weeks at a time.

The theft itself requires a peculiar combination of nihilism and finicky care. You must be the sort of person who’s willing to disregard a generations-old edict, invoked ceaselessly by lifelong apiarists, that “you don’t steal another man’s bees.” Yet pulling it off perfectly is also a dainty affair. You work quietly, gently, usually at night. You cannot jostle the hives too much, lest you damage the queen, which can cause the bees to lose interest in pollination. And it’s not enough to place the bees in a warehouse somewhere; they need access to a water source and all the typical treatments and feedings (sugar water, pollen patties) a doting keeper would provide.

Their value, after all, lies in their apparent health at the point of delivery to a farmer. Sick bees don’t sell.

It’s for these reasons that many of California’s most lurid and notorious bee heists have been perpetrated by apiarists gone rogue. In 1977, the beekeeper David Allred was sentenced to a minimum of three years in prison for lifting $10,000 worth of hives from another keeper in Tracy, California—and using stolen trucks to move them. A deputy district attorney told the presiding judge that Allred “wanted to be known as the Jesse James of the beehive industry,” according to The Press-Enterprise in Riverside.

It wasn’t Allred’s first brush with the law. The year before, he’d gone to jail for helping another beekeeper, David Graves, poison 15 million bees that belonged to a man who’d recently married Graves’s ex-wife and subsequently kicked Graves’s ass after an escalating series of vandalisms. And a few years ago, Allred was sued for taking $30,000 worth of bees that weren’t his—and tricking local sheriff’s deputies into helping him pull off the score.

In 2012, the owner of Tauzer Apiaries, not far from Sacramento, noticed that about 80 of his hives were missing. He pulled together a search party, which soon found parts of the bee boxes scattered along a nearby highway; they also found a bucket of green paint. The clues eventually led them to the beekeeper Viktor Zhdamirov, who had mixed the stolen bees in with his own—and painted the boxes the same shade of green that had stained the bucket. He got three years in prison and was forced to pay more than $60,000.

And in early 2014, the Bakersfield-area beekeeper Joe Romance hatched a plan to recover nearly 200 hives that recently had been taken from him. Shortly after his property went missing, an unknown beekeeper arrived in town and began conducting business from Starbucks, a location most locals agreed was profoundly weird and suspicious. Romance asked a friend to pose as an almond farmer interested in leasing bees. Sure enough, his property was found sitting in a chop shop surrounded by razor wire.

This sort of theft has been an intermittent phenomenon across California for years. But recently, the numbers have started to climb. More than 2,700 hives were reported stolen from 2016 to 2017, according to an analysis of police records by Rowdy Jay Freeman, a sheriff’s deputy in Butte County and a beekeeper himself. In the three years before that, the average number of annual reported thefts was closer to 100.

article-image

“It’s very lucrative business,” said Isaac Torres, the agriculture detective. Yet at the same time, “it’s not just some guys who are breaking into cars, or deciding, ‘I’m going to go steal some bees!’ ”

The thieves were cautious and methodical. They likely skipped from orchard to orchard, stacking boxes quickly onto a truck at night. They were familiar with the ins and outs of transporting bees—and keeping them healthy enough to rent out later.

Little else is known about how the thefts were conducted. The 2017 Fresno County case is still working its way through the court system, and officials are limited in how much they can discuss it. Alexa Pavlov, the beekeeper who confronted Pavel Tveretinov last year, has stopped answering calls.

But some have expressed doubt that Tveretinov and alleged accomplice Vitaliy Yeroshenko will face penalties commensurate to the volume of bees stolen. Without an abundance of eyewitness accounts or physical evidence, the two are being charged with 10 counts of receiving stolen property exceeding $950. In July, the Fresno County District Attorney’s Office added two grand theft charges.

“They always say in law enforcement, ‘What you know is one thing; what you can prove is another,’” said Andres Solis, a Fresno County sheriff’s deputy who has worked on the case. The evening he first saw the field where Tveretinov was arrested, he’d been on the job roughly a month. Today, he has a deep understanding of what bees, and bee theft, mean to California.

“It’s not just the property itself that they’re out,” Solis said. “It’s also the man hours spent bringing these bees up and making the hive healthy. … You get your bees back and they’re nothing like they were before.”

article-image

One morning before leaving Fresno, I drove an hour east, to one of the sites where authorities discovered hundreds of boxes of stolen hives. I wanted to see firsthand what an illicit bee operation looks like and, a year after the arrest of Tveretinov and Yeroshenko, what had become of the insects they’re accused of stealing.

The field was so remote that it didn’t have a proper address. To point me there, Torres dropped a pin on Google Maps, then recited from memory a short soliloquy of landmarks. I left early in the morning, hoping to evade the heat. But by the time I arrived, it was close to 100 degrees.

The spot was perfect for keeping bees: an overgrown field, about an acre long, nestled between an orchard and a man-made canal. It was close to a main road, but completely hidden if you’re speeding by at 60 mph.

Inside a perimeter of rusty barbed wire, hundreds of bee boxes sat in squat stacks. Just like the ones Torres described, these were painted a variety of colors. I stood near the perimeter, watching as thousands of bees launched from their hives, cutting through the scorching air.

Near the boxes was an abandoned van, a couple of bicycles, a flatbed, and an old Coachmen RV. A year after Tveretinov’s arrest, some beekeepers still had not retrieved their hives. It is, after all, quite costly to ship bees across the country with no guarantee they’ll arrive in the condition you’d delivered them. For some, getting their property back wasn’t worth the gamble.

Up an embankment just yards away, cars roared past on a two-lane highway. A curious driver could easily have pulled over and peered into the field, spotted the makings of an alleged criminal enterprise whose size and peculiarity would be virtually unprecedented in California. One deputy said he’d sped past this field dozens of times on his way to headquarters. He’d never stopped.

“There’s bees there,” he said. “But you don’t think nothing of it. It’s bees. It’s pretty common to see beehives.”

I got as close as any bee novice probably should. Watched the stolen property zip through the air, folding in and out of kaleidoscopic clouds. Then I headed back to my rental car and began the long drive home, through miles and miles of almond trees.

          HC Wake-Up Call: Hurricane Michael Likely to Be Category 4 By Landfall, Kanye West to Meet With Trump & 1,500 Noncitizens Registered to Vote in CA      Cache   Translate Page      

Good morning, Her Campus! With a break-neck news cycle, there is no possible way for you to stay on top of every story that comes across your feeds—we’re all only human, after all.

But, life comes at you fast. So grab a cup of coffee and settle in for this quick and dirty guide to stories you might’ve been sleeping on (like, literally. It’s early.)

Hurricane Michael Upgrade to Category 3

Hurricane Michael churned in the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday, upgrading to a Category 3 storm, and is likely to make landfall as a Category 4 storm with a dangerous storm surge of up to 12 feet, officials said.

According to CNN, Michael was expected to intensify overnight and draw closer to a Category 4 in strength when it makes landfall Wednesday afternoon near the Panhandle, the National Weather Service said.

The hurricane is threatening dangerous storm surges to low-lying areas that are ill-equipped to handle it.

Officials have residents to evacuate the area now. If the storm makes landfall as a Category 2 or higher, it will become the strongest storm to make landfall in the United States this year.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott called Michael a “monstrous storm” that could bring “total devastation.”

“Hurricane Michael is forecast to be the most destructive storm to hit the Florida Panhandle in decades,” Scott said warned at a news conference on Tuesday. “You cannot hide from storm surge, so get out if an evacuation is ordered.”

“We can rebuild your house, but we cannot rebuild your life,” Scott warned.

On Tuesday night, Michael had sustained maximum winds of 120 mph, and gusts of up to 150 mph. According to the hurricane center's scale, a Category 3 storm has sustained winds of 111 mph to 129 mph. A Category 4 storm can have sustained winds of over 130 mph.

The storm is forecast to make landfall near Panama City, Florida as a Category 4 hurricane on Wednesday afternoon. By Thursday morning, Michael will move across Georgia and into South Carolina.

Besides the dangerous storm surge, residents should also prepare for torrential rain and major flooding, Scott said, with 4 to 8 inches of rain expected, and some areas even receiving as much as 12 inches.

According to CNN, winds of tropic storm force will be felt in the area starting as early Wednesday. Mandatory and voluntary evacuation orders have already been issued in at least 22 counties on the Florida Gulf Coast ahead of Hurricane Michael.

Kanye West to Meet With Trump

Kanye West is set to visit the White House on Thursday where he will meet with President Donald Trump and Jared Kushner, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.

“Kanye West is coming to the White House to have lunch with President Trump and he will also meet with Jared Kushner,” Sanders said in a statement Tuesday. “Topics of discussions will include manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence, and what can be done to reduce violence in Chicago.”

It’s unclear if West’s visit to the White House will be open to the press.

West has faced backlash over the past few months after announcing his support of Trump, including in a recent “Saturday Night Live” appearance where the rapper said that cast members “bullied” him, ABC News reports.

“They bullied me backstage. They said, ‘Don’t go out there with that hat on,’” West said of his red ‘Make America Great Again’ cap. “They bullied me backstage. They bullied me. And then they say I’m in a sunken place.”

Trump later tweeted his support for West.

West deleted his Twitter and Instagram accounts following the inundation of criticism after his “SNL” appearance, and for a tweet afterward in which he called for the abolishment of the 13th Amendment, which outlawed slavery in the United States.

The president has touted West’s support as evidence that his message is resonating with the African American community, including at a recent political rally in Topeka, Kansas.

“It’s habit because for a hundred years, African-Americans have gone with Democrats but now they're changing and they’re changing fast and they're coming. Thank you, Kanye West,” Trump said.

1,500 Noncitizens May Have Accidentally Been Registered to Vote in CA DMV Error

More than a thousand noncitizens may have been accidentally registered to vote in California in a processing error, according to officials.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) admitted the mistake on Monday, which caused as many as 1,500 noncitizens to be registered to vote in the state.

According to ABC News, the DMV was alerted about the mistake when Randall Marquis, a Canadian citizen and legal permanent resident in the U.S., went to The Los Angeles Times to tell them about receiving a piece of mail from the DMV saying he was registered to vote.

“I got this postcard thing, this little piece of cardboard, and it said, ‘Congratulations, you're registered to vote,’” Marquis told Sacramento ABC affiliate KXTV. “I thought, ‘Oh, that’s the stupidest thing I've ever heard,’ and I threw it out.”

This is the second voter registration error in the state in recent months. The DMV notified Secretary of State Alex Padilla in early September that approximately 23,000 Californians had their voter registrations handled incorrectly, including being assigned to the wrong political party.

“An extensive external audit by our departments found that approximately 1,500 customers may have been registered to vote in error,” the letter from the DMV to Padilla read. “This error has been corrected and is separate from the processing error we notified you about in writing on September 5.”

“This error occurred when DMV technicians processed customer requests at field offices to change voter eligibility responses on driver license applications,” the letter says. “Due to the order in which the change was processed, the customer's initial responses were retained instead of the correct and revised responses.”

“We have worked quickly with the Department of Technology to correct these errors and have also updated the programming and added additional safeguards to improve this process,” DMV Director Jean Shiomoto said in a statement to Sacramento ABC affiliate KXTV.

The DMV specified that none of the impacted individual were undocumented immigrants.

Marine veteran among those killed in New York limo crash

STARS AND STRIPES

 Published: October 9, 2018 

WASHINGTON — U.S. Marine Corps veteran Michael Ukaj was a helper.

Marine veteran Michael Ukaj was killed in a limo accident in Schoharie, NY, on Saturday, October 6, 2018, along with nineteen other people. FACEBOOK
He was the person his childhood friend, Bradley Armstrong, could count on to be there for him, even when he didn’t ask for it, and even if they were in different cities or states. When Ukaj’s brother, Jeremy Ashton, needed advice, he was the one to give it. He counseled Ashton about everything from breakups to whether he should argue with his landlord over a utility bill (he didn’t, on Ukaj’s guidance) and if he should join the Air Force or Marine Corps (he went with Marine Corps, also Ukaj’s suggestion). “He was a straight-shooter, an honest man who was always there when you needed him,” Ashton said. “Any time I needed clear advice, I would go to him. He would always cut through the bull---t and help me objectively look at something.” read more here

MIA no longer: Military sees surge in identifications of servicemember remains

Associated Press

Published: October 10, 2018
Officials believe remains of nearly half of the 83,000 unidentified service members killed in World War II and more recent wars could be identified and returned to relatives.

In this Sept. 18, 2018 photo, Dr. Carrie Brown, forensic anthropologist and director of the USS Oklahoma Project at the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) Identification laboratory, points to images on posters showing the names and photos of the victims of the USS Oklahoma, sunk by the Japanese in Pearl Harbor. NATI HARNIK/AP
BELLEVUE, Neb. — Nearly 77 years after repeated torpedo strikes tore into the USS Oklahoma, killing hundreds of sailors and Marines, Carrie Brown leaned over the remains of a serviceman laid out on a table in her lab and was surprised the bones still smelled of burning oil from that horrific day at Pearl Harbor. It was a visceral reminder of the catastrophic attack that pulled the United States into World War II, and it added an intimacy to the painstaking work Brown and hundreds of others are now doing to greatly increase the number of lost American servicemen who have been identified. It's a monumental mission that combines science, history and intuition, and it's one Brown and her colleagues have recently been completing at ramped-up speed, with identifications expected to reach 200 annually, more than triple the figures from recent years. read more here

Report: Pentagon weapons systems vulnerable to cyber attacks

Associated Press
By LOLITA C. BALDOR
Published: October 9, 2018

WASHINGTON — Defense Department weapons programs are vulnerable to cyberattacks, and the Pentagon has been slow to protect the systems which are increasingly reliant on computer networks and software, a federal report said Tuesday.

The U.S. Government Accountability Office said the Pentagon has worked to ensure its networks are secure, but only recently began to focus more on its weapons systems security. The audit, conducted between September 2017 and October 2018, found that there are "mounting challenges in protecting its weapons systems from increasingly sophisticated cyber threats." Pentagon officials have acknowledged for years that the department, the military services and defense contractors are under persistent cyber probes and attacks, including from state actors seeking to steal data to gain an economic or technological advantage. read more here
