          Evaluation of a multi-wavelength black carbon sensor      Cache   Translate Page      
Black carbon emitted from incomplete combustion processes is often used as a marker for diesel exhaust, a known carcinogen, and is associated with adverse health effects in exposed communities. Although multiple instruments exist to measure black carbon, very few are tailored for sensor applications where light-weight, low-power, and insensitivity to environmental conditions allow for operation in the demanding environments encountered during unmanned aerial measurements or long-term fence line monitoring as conducted by the U.S. EPA. Understanding these challenges, Aethlabs (San Francisco, CA) designed the MA200/MA350 multi-wavelength black carbon instrument. We assessed the operation of this new sensor compared to numerous other black carbon instruments under a variety of ambient environmental conditions and black carbon concentrations. In long-term ambient measurements the new sensor compared well with heavier, multi-wavelength, rack mounted instruments and were only minimally impacted from changing ambient conditions. The sensor was also affixed to a tethered aerostat and an unmanned aerial vehicle for sampling from open biomass burning. In tests with another commercially-available black carbon instrument, the new sensor could sample for longer times in the high concentration plume due to an automatically advancing, multi-spot filter tape and self-correction for artifacts due to filter, increasing the accuracy of the black carbon measurement.

          Morgan Stanley brokers, bankers to get new tech-friendly offices      Cache   Translate Page      

Morgan Stanley is remodeling.

About 1.2 million square feet of office space will get an overhaul in the next 15 months to put technology experts closer to brokers, traders and bankers, the firm’s head of technology, Rob Rooney, said in an interview. After changes to wealth-management operations, trading floors, investment-banking offices and space tied to asset management will all get a remake.

“The workplace needed to be designed around a much more dynamic, millennial kind of workforce,” said Rooney, 51, who stepped into the technology role this year. “We’re trying to attract the next generation of the best and brightest.”

Demolition work in lower Manhattan has already created open floor plans that give more employees views of the Statue of Liberty and Hudson River, a perk previously reserved for senior executives cloistered in their wood-walled offices. Now, glass partitions and interactive whiteboards abound, and the dress code is decidedly more casual.

The first phase represents about 9,000 seats around the world, though the project may expand, Rooney said.

Morgan Stanley’s past technology investments helped make it the biggest stock-trading firm in the world, and Chief Executive Officer James Gorman has said it’s a major priority to replicate that success in bond markets. The bank, which also has a $2.4 trillion wealth-management division, is spending $4 billion annually on the effort, including the building of what it calls “Centers of Excellence” to focus on blockchain, automation and other technologies.

With 18 million transactions a day on the firm’s electronic-trading platform for equities, pushing the efficiency envelope “is kind of challenging the speed of light,” Rooney said. “If you’re an engineer, these are real problems you’re trying to solve.”

In wealth management, where a lot of the initial office changes will roll out, the bank built algorithms and is using machine learning to help more than 15,000 brokers make trade suggestions for clients and handle more routine tasks.

The overhaul is one of Wall Street’s biggest. WeWork Cos. last year began helping UBS Group AG update wealth-management offices in Weehawken, New Jersey. Also in 2017, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. unveiled the largest revamp of its trading hub since 2009, when about 500 asset managers were moved into an open floor plan.

Modernization isn’t optional for a firm like Morgan Stanley, said Ekene Ezulike, global head of corporate services. “The question is how quickly we do it, versus whether we should do it,” he said.

As little as 60% of Morgan Stanley’s work space is occupied at any given time, according to Ezulike, who said the changes will push that rate as high as 90% as options such as desk sharing let more people use fewer seats.

Despite the less stuffy dress code and other updates, Morgan Stanley shouldn’t be confused with a Silicon Valley startup, Rooney said.

“We’re not a technology firm, we’re a bank,” Rooney said. “We don’t sell technology, we sell advice.”

While there’s no kombucha on tap as there is at Goldman Sachs’s revamped San Francisco offices, there are common dining rooms, and the firm hired its first-ever community manager, Fiona Thomas. She helps plan office get-togethers and is overseeing a meditation event that was oversubscribed.

Morgan Stanley’s executives approved the project, called “Workplace Evolution,” in March and some spaces were fully revamped in months, with help from WeWork and the architectural firm Gensler. The first set of changes included offices in New York, Houston, Frankfurt, Chicago, Glasgow, Budapest, London, Mumbai and Bangalore.

The firm’s headquarters in Times Square—which is about 1.3 million square feet—will also see changes, Rooney said. The capital-markets division for the wealth-management unit will be revamped this year. The technology division and back-office functions tied to finance are also being renovated.

“Our traders need to be with our techies,” Rooney said. “You’ll see a very different trading floor in five years time than you see today.”

By Laurie Niles: In an effort to promote the coverage of live violin performance, Violinist.com each week presents links to reviews of notable concerts and recitals around the world. Benjamin Beilman performed Jennifer Higdon's Violin Concerto with the Berkeley Symphony.
  • San Francisco Chronicle Datebook: "At every juncture, he brought a blend of interpretive subtlety and technical boldness — qualities that reappeared in his encore, a potent account of the Largo from Bach’s C-Major Violin Sonata."
  • San Francisco Classical Voice: "Beilman’s musicality was breathtaking, athletic, and assured, while his demeanor seemed unassuming and humble. "

Leila Josefowicz performed the Stravinsky Violin Concerto with the New York Philharmonic. Julian Rachlin and violist Sarah McElravy performed Penderecki’s Concerto Doppio for Violin, Viola and Orchestra (the "Rachlin Double") and Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante with the Royal Northern Sinfonia.
  • The Northern Echo: "Leading from the violin, Rachlin opened a joyous account (of the Mozart), before being joined by McElravy in a dialogue full of vigour and energy. The achingly beautiful slow movement was eloquently conveyed, with the soloists warmly enveloped by the orchestra."
Arnaud Sussmann performed the Brahms Violin Concerto with the Santa Rosa Symphony.
  • San Francisco Classical Voice: "His tone is gorgeous, and he projects well, soaring high above the orchestra with ease. His many other virtues are self-evident: perfect intonation, ramrod-straight bowing, tremendous dynamic range, and blistering speed."
Ilya Gringolts performed Paganini Concerto No. 1 with the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
  • The West Australian: "Paganini, the 19th-century all-time great, allegedly broke strings to show off his versatility but Gringolts had no such need, his virtuosic style simple, agile and understated. ACO members looked on in frank admiration during the cadenza to the first movement, an elastic and scintillating homage to the composer that drew those whoops and frantic applause."

          The Natural Product Doctors Have Been Using for Years to Prevent Heart Attacks      Cache   Translate Page      
A natural substance was accidentally discovered from a plant in Africa to have rapid positive effects on heart conditions in the mid-19th Century. Eventually, it became part of mainstream heart medicine in Germany, but administered only by IV under clinical supervision. This natural heart attack remedy and preventative is currently known as ouabain (wah-bay-in) also known as strophanthin (stroe-fan-thin), which was initially extracted from the African tree Acokanthera ouabaio, leading to the English name version ouabain. Currently, there are many German doctors prescribing ouabain or G-strophanthin, and they want to keep it that way even though it’s natural and can’t be patented as a pharmaceutical drug, which is another reason that little is known of it outside of Germany. Dr. Thomas Cowan, MD, debunks the current official explanation of heart disease by analyzing the inconsistencies and paradoxes of actual heart attack cases compared to the accepted arterial clogging explanation. Dr. Cowan is a holistic MD practicing in San Francisco, California. He states by having his heart patients on ouabain he has not lost any of them to heart attacks. His new understanding of heart disease and subsequent successful use of ouabain is attributed to the German doctor Knut Sroka, MD, who calls ouabain “an outstanding plant drug ignored by academic medicine”.

Getting Local Land Use Approvals Right
October 9, 2018

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

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

Categories of Review

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

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

Shortening Timelines

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

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

Exploring New Ideas

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

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


          Chinese and US Investors Team Up to Create a Global Crypto Investment Fund      Cache   Translate Page      
Chinese and US Investors Team Up to Create a Global Crypto Investment Fund

The latest crypto investment fund on the block is Dragonfly Ventures, a $100 million traditional venture fund investing only in crypto assets, managed by partners Alexander Pack from Bain Capital Ventures and Bo Feng, founding partner of Ceyuan Ventures.

“We come at crypto as generalist venture capitalists who have been investing in internet technology for decades. With Dragonfly, we have decided to go all-in on crypto, because we believe that crypto is the most interesting tech trend today by far,” said Dragonfly managing partner and Bain Capital advisor Alexander Pack in an interview with Bitcoin Magazine.

“The ability to use technology to redefine fundamental social constructs like money, value, and how value is exchanged across borders, is a once in a century opportunity that could be bigger than the internet,” he added.

Pack has been investing in cryptocurrencies and blockchain businesses for more than four years at various venture capital firms in the U.S. and Asia but wanted to create a fund that was solely for cryptocurrency businesses.

He describes Dragonfly as “a fully unconstrained venture fund for the crypto asset class, investing globally and across all asset types. We even invest significantly in other cryptofunds, as well as make direct investments in tokens and startups.”

Dragonfly has already attracted technology founders and investors from across the U.S. and Asia, including Salil Deshpande (Bain Capital Ventures), Marc Andreessen and Chris Dixon (A16Z), Cyan Banister (Founders Fund) and Olaf Carlson-Wee (Polychain Capital).

A China-U.S. Fund

Headquartered in San Francisco and Beijing, Dragonfly Capital Partners have identified what they see as a new market opportunity in bridging the gap between East and West, investing in crypto businesses across both continents.

Managing partner Bo Feng is a founder of Ceyuan Ventures. In the ‘90s he launched the China business of Robertson Stephens, a high-tech investment bank, and is the largest investor in the exchange OKEx.

“I see a parallel between the Internet boom in the ‘90s and the current cryptocurrency market opportunity. The crypto revolution may be even bigger than the internet and more global,” says Feng.

According to Feng, Dragonfly takes an “ecosystem approach,” investing in fund managers around the world and connecting the top technologists from the West to investing in fund managers around the world, as well as connecting top technologists from the West with the largest crypto companies and user bases in Asia.

Asian investors include Bitmain, OKEx, Neil Shen (head of Sequoia China), Eric Xu (founder of Baidu), Bob Xiaoping Xu (founding partner of Zhenfund), Zhang Tao (chairman and founder of Meituan-Dianping), Bao Fan (founder and CEO of

China Renaissance Bank), Cai Wensheng (founder and chairman of Meitu), Justin Tang (founder and CEO of X Financial, eLong), JP Gan (Qiming Venture Partners), and Annie Xu (head and general manager of Alibaba U.S.).

“We have a unique opportunity to back and bring together the leading participants in the decentralized economy — from fund managers to token project leaders, from Beijing to San Francisco to Berlin,” said Feng.

Part of a Growing Investment Trend

Dragonfly is launching with a portfolio of 20 investments, including tech-driven crypto funds and asset managers, decentralized financial infrastructure such as the cryptocurrency Basis, and foundational protocols such as Spacemesh and Oasis Labs.

A recent report by blockchain research group Diar identified a new trend among investors. While traditional investment in crypto products has doubled and continues to grow, ICOs themselves have lost 70 percent in value.

The Diar report shows that almost $3.9 billion in investments was raised in the first three quarters of 2018, 280 percent of what was raised in 2017. The report also indicates an increase in the number of investment deals — almost twice the number recorded in the previous year.

“We invest in any market condition and actually are investing at a faster pace during this downturn than we anticipated, since in our opinion the quality of projects and founders has never been higher,” said Pack.

Traditional venture capital investments are leveraging the decline in ICOs as the cryptocurrency industry tries to find its bearings amid regulatory shifts and losses across crypto markets, notes the Diar report.

Pack told us that the investment strategy for Dragonfly is based on three principles.

“We have three theses that guide our investment philosophy: that the decentralized economy will take trillion dollar bites out of the centralized economy, that pick-and-shovel tech startups will emerge as bridges between the decentralized and centralized economies, and that crypto assets will one day be the most liquid and traded financial assets in the world,” said Pack.

“Today, large barriers prevent mainstream and institutional users from joining the decentralized economy. We are investing heavily in teams that are breaking down those barriers, such as institutional-grade trading infrastructure and general scaling solutions. We look forward to those launching and gaining traction in the next year,” added Pack.

          UK's Oldest Crypto Exchange Prepares for Employee Layoffs      Cache   Translate Page      
Coinfloor Layoffs

In what may be a sign that business in the cryptocurrency space is in a winding down phase, U.K.-based bitcoin exchange Coinfloor is bidding adieu to half of its staff.

The company, which claims to be the oldest crypto exchange in London, has roughly 40 employees. More than half of them will be let go, Financial News reported, citing two sources close to the matter. The news broke early today, October 8, 2018.

Coinfloor CEO Obi Nwosu confirmed the layoffs but declined to spell out exactly how many employees would be let go. He told Financial News the staff cuts were a normal response to a changing market environment.

Following the market’s downturn at the beginning of 2018, a lot is changing in the cryptocurrency business. Since the beginning of the year, bitcoin has lost more than half of its value, and regulations across the globe are heating up. China has been taking increased action to clamp down on all things cryptocurrency, and, in the U.S., regulators are starting to get tough with crypto exchanges, unregistered securities dealers and questionable initial coin offerings.

Amidst this shifting landscape, Coinfloor is not the only one to feel the market’s pinch. In September, Jesse Powell, the CEO of San Francisco-based exchange Kraken, said the company was cutting 10 percent of its client services team in a “cost-saving measure,” but denied rumors that the layoffs would amount to any more than that. At the time of publication, Kraken is the 23rd largest exchange by trading volume.

Despite the market downturn, some exchanges continue to paint a rosy picture. Binance boasted that it expected a net profit of $500 million to $1 billion in 2018, according to its chief executive officer. But without seeing the company’s financials, it is hard to get a clear view on the full picture.

Typically, exchanges make a lucrative profit, which is why so many have entered the game as of late. To date, there are 219 crypto exchanges all competing for each other’s business. But if the current market downturn continues, more will likely have to make adjustments or else bow out.

Founded in 2013, Coinfloor was one of the first exchanges onto the scene. Its big pitch early on was that it followed strict know-your-customer (KYC) and anti-money-laundering (AML) procedures to ensure the integrity of its users and traders.

According to its website, the exchange is backed by TransferWise founder Taavet Hinrikus, venture capital firm Passion Capital and Adam Knight, a former managing director at Goldman Sachs and Credit Suisse.

          PwC and Cred Partner to Develop Cryptocurrency Trading Technology      Cache   Translate Page      
PwC Cred

Global professional services firm PwC has partnered with decentralized lending platform Cred to boost trust in the cryptocurrency space and bring in more traders by advancing stablecoin technology.

PwC consists of several different financial firms and spans across 158 countries. The company currently boasts over 200,000 employees serving in quality assurance, advisory and tax service positions.

Founded by former PayPal technologists Dan Schatt and Lu Hua, Cred seeks to offer open access to cryptocurrency-based credit options, regardless of where the seeker may reside. With offices in Munich, San Francisco, Shanghai, Sydney and Singapore, the company has utilized the blockchain to secure over $250 million in lending capital for its clients.

Speaking with Bitcoin Magazine, Schatt describes the partnership as a milestone in the crypto industry. “This is one of the first times PwC has formed a joint business relationship with a company focused on the blockchain and crypto,” he explains.

“We’re looking to help people borrow crypto the way they would fiat and treat it like any other asset class. If you go to any bank, it won’t offer crypto loans because it doesn’t acknowledge crypto as a real asset class. This is bad because we need new ways of looking at custody and lending, and this is the first time a big accounting firm has said it would work with a company in this space.”

One of the biggest problems facing cryptocurrency is volatility. Schatt says that volatility exists because the crypto market lacks liquidity, and trading can frequently result in price swings. Many institutional investors refuse to get involved out of concern that their funds will disappear due to crypto’s consistent price drops.

Several have expressed that they would be less worried if virtual assets were tied to fiat currencies like the U.S. dollar, making them stablecoins. The trouble is that such currencies require a reserve ledger built for fully decentralized assets that can provide value substantiation and transparency.

PwC is seeking to provide education to both investors and startups alike that discusses how this technology can advance. In addition, PwC will offer insight on factors ranging from security and risk management to governance and control to potentially improve upon present industry practices.

Schatt is confident further development of stablecoins will increase the level of transparency in the crypto market and boost the economy by getting more mainstream investors involved.

“If you can get a stablecoin that’s very transparent and tied to USD, for example, that’s a very powerful confidence booster,” he states. “Imagine, also, that you can get out of a rapidly depreciating currency and get into something that’s giving you a return on your money between two and five percent. That’s truly powerful.”

Cred is also a founding member of the Universal Protocol (UP) Alliance. Supporters of the organization include Blockchain at Berkley and Brave, whose CEO Brendan Eich recently penned a letter to a U.S. Senate committee asking that GDPR-like standards be implemented in the United States.

The Alliance presently serves as a major platform for the creation, management and distribution of stablecoins, and works to push mass adoption by introducing new kinds of safeguards that make virtual currencies more convenient and practical. These tactics include inheritability, private key recovery and even loss assurance.

Schatt says that lending in crypto is precisely what allows Cred to garner so many funds for its clients. Several traditional lenders enforce long and complicated processes when acquiring money for customers. In addition, factors like interest rates are always going to differ depending on the fiat currency being issued and the individual terms of the lender.

He explains, however, that while credit and background checks are inevitable, Cred’s procedure for securing capital is simpler in that cryptocurrencies possess the same properties no matter where you are. Thus, the interest rates for Cred’s loans do not change, and people have more opportunity to secure their money and pay it back with ease.

“If you own a home, you have to value it in all kinds of different ways, but bitcoin has the same properties no matter what, so we can potentially offer the same level of interest to all customers,” he assures.

Bitcoin Magazine also reached out to PwC for comment, but did not receive a response.

However, if you take the extra 45 minutes to travel to Calistoga, you’ll be treated to a glimpse of what Napa was 50 years ago. The vibe is relaxed—even at the poshest wineries—and the wines match the quality of those anywhere in Napa Valley at generally lower prices. Here are five wineries in Calistoga that you don’t want to miss.

On a Saturday night in SoMa, about 40 diners sat down at a long table lined with banana leaves and piled high with delicacies—slices of crackly-skinned pork belly, whole fried petrale sole, tangy sinigang broth, shrimp glazed with banana ketchup, and as many mounds of white rice as there were paying guests. No utensils were provided.

           Startup in Residence Program Calls for Vendor Applications       Cache   Translate Page      

The Startup in Residence Program (STiR) is now open for applications from private-sector entrepreneurs.

As such, STiR’s website has posted its annual list of civic challenges, which this year includes more than 80 potential use cases from 28 government partners, including cities, counties, states and even regional transit organizations.

In a phone call announcing the opening of the application process, organizers said that a major goal for this year’s class is to reach 100 percent for the rate of entrepreneurs that ultimately receive government contracts. Jay Nath, who is co-executive director of the organization that oversees STiR, said that historically that rate is 40 percent, noting that forthcoming information about the most recent STiR class will likely provide a boost.

All of this speaks directly to the core goals and ideas that give STiR shape: that government has a need for private-sector ideas to help it overcome complex and widespread problems. Alternatively, entrepreneurs see government as a vast and relatively untapped market. Essentially, STiR seeks to function as an introduction mechanism between the public and private sectors.

Its structure is built to facilitate this. This year, for example, the application phase for entrepreneurs will remain open until Nov. 7. After it closes, the 28 government partners will parse through the applications and select potential vendors with which to collaborate. Then, starting in January, the government entities will partner with the companies on a project to be built over the course of four months, or they will tweak an existing product to be more in line with the needs of government.

The best-case scenario for the private companies is that they will be able to build a product capable of addressing a common and widespread governmental need, enabling them to not only sell it to the agency they partnered with but also to thousands of other governments nation- or worldwide.

“You can put a challenge out there and rapidly create a solution in four months and go into contract,” Nath said. “Our cities are prepared in total to spend $5 million on these challenges and solutions. There’s a big readiness, a big commitment, and they’re ready to really roll up their sleeves and work with these startups to develop solutions.”

STiR first launched as a program limited to San Francisco back in 2014. It subsequently expanded to be a regional California program, before going nationwide last year. This year marks the broadest class of STiR government partners yet, with new members in Canada as well as in other levels of government, specifically at the state level thanks to the participation of Pennsylvania and Vermont. 

For private-sector partners, STiR continues to be a viable way of breaking into the sometimes tricky arena of govtech contracts. The most famous example is probably Binti, which developed a more efficient way for San Francisco residents to apply to be foster parents as well as for city employees to manage their applications. Binti has continued to expand the solution it developed for STiR into increasingly more governmental jurisdictions.

Binti, however, is far from the only success story. This past year saw the Danish company Nordsense work with San Francisco to build trash can sensors that can alert the city as soon as a public waste bin gets too full.

Nordsense CEO Anders Engdal and CTO Manuel Maestrini described their experience with STiR as a positive one. In addition to expanding its work with STiR from a pilot program to a large-scale deployment, Nordsense is now also exploring new installations with governments in Canada, Israel and Switzerland.

“This is so great because it’s so troublesome as a startup to do business with government,” Engdal said, “but in this case we have done it. I wish we had a program like this in Europe, or even in Denmark.”

Where do you think the nation's best "foodie city" is? If you guessed right here in the Pacific Northwest, you're right. Portland tops the list and Seattle is also in the top 10!

WalletHub, the personal-finance website, says it chose the cities based on the best and cheapest local food scenes. They compared more than 180 of the nation's largest cities across 29 categories, including affordability and accessibility of high-quality restaurants to food festivals per capita and how many craft breweries and wineries there are. Portland came in at number 1.

Here are the other top ten finishers:

3. Miami, FL

4. New York, NY

5. Los Angeles, CA

7. Las Vegas, NV

8. Seattle, WA

9. San Diego, CA

10. Austin Texas

Spokane ranked #54 and Tacoma ranked #94. Some other interesting local notes, when it comes to the lowest average beer and wine prices, two places in Idaho tied for the fifth lowest price in the nation: Boise and Nampa. Seattle had the highest price for beer and wine in the nation. Portland and Seattle tied with Santa Rosa, CA, for the cities with the most breweries and wineries per capita in the nation. Portland and Seattle also tied for first place with New York and San Francisco for the cities with the most coffee shops per person.

          The Kinsey Sicks In THINGS YOU SHOULDN'T SAY In Toronto One Night Only Nov 1, 2018      Cache   Translate Page      

Toronto (October 9, 2018) - Back by popular demand, The Kinsey Sicks, America's Favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet, will bring their critically-acclaimed show, Things You Shouldn't Say, to Toronto on November 1. Presented by SING! The Toronto Vocal Arts Festival and Derrick Chua Entertainment, Things You Shouldn't Say is the remarkable true story of four friends from San Francisco who had a life-changing epiphany at a Bette Midler concert in 1993 that led them to form the a cappella group The Kinsey Sicks in an effort to find joy during the darkest days of the AIDS crisis. Things You Shouldn't Say will perform at The Al Green Theatre at the Miles Nadal JCC (750 Spadina Ave, Toronto) for one night only on Thursday, November 1 at 8 p.m. Tickets for Things You Shouldn't Say range in price from $25 - $35 and are on sale at http://bit.do/kinseytoronto

Now that the era of Trumpism is upon us, The Kinsey Sicks are sharing their hilarious, inspiring and, at times, heartbreaking tale, and showing that hatred and deceit can be fought with humor and heart. The show leads the audience in resisting these new dark times with laughter, integrity, and heroically high hair in an unforgettable new musical exploring Trumpism, racism, AIDS, extreme macramé, oblong vegetables and, of course, Bette Midler. From the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to London and Manhattan to D.C., Things You Shouldn't Say has garnered rave reviews. Forbes Magazine heralded it as "Riveting...a humbling, hilarious delivery system of painful truths...Things You Shouldn't Say will push buttons you didn't know you had," while The Washington Post deemed it "Outrageousness tinged with outrage... witty... hilarious... a band of such inventively diabolical brains... gets sardonically darker and rewardingly so...it's a piercing cry from the heart."

The show is part of The Kinsey Sicks' 25th Anniversary Tour, and the final Toronto performance of co-founder Benjamin Schatz as "Rachel" before his retirement. The Kinsey Sicks, whose cast also includes Jeff Manabat as "Trixie", Spencer Brown as "Trampolina" and Nathan Marken as "Winnie", have served up a feast of music and comedy to audiences at performing arts centers, music venues and comedy festivals throughout the U.S. and internationally. Their phenomenal performance record includes an Off-Broadway show, an extended run in Las Vegas, two feature films and three concert DVDs, nine albums, and appearances in over 40 states, Canada, Mexico, Europe, and Australia. The Kinsey Sicks' award-winning a cappella singing, sharp satire and over-the-top drag have earned them a diverse and devoted following around the world.

          'Go Be a N----- Somewhere Else': ACLU Files Lawsuit Citing San Francisco Police's Documented History of Vile Racism      Cache   Translate Page      
The city by the bay has been a hotbed of illegal race-based policing. This is just the latest example.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Not an Anomaly

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

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

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

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

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

It's Not Just San Francisco

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

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

When will things ever change?

          "The Land Of The Living Dead": Inside San Francisco's Most Disgusting City Block      Cache   Translate Page      

Over the last year or two, San Francisco has become notorious for having some of the dirtiest major city blocks in the United States. In fact, things have gotten so bad that the city has employed full-time workers that it pays almost $200,000 per year to clean up human feces on the ground which, along with heroin needles and litter, have put the city streets into total disarray.

The New York Times was the latest to highlight what, exactly, life was like on Hyde Street, one of the dirtiest streets in the city. The area is just 15 minutes away from technology giants like Twitter and Uber, yet you'd never know by looking at it. The worst parts of Hyde Street are in the middle of the city's Tenderloin neighborhood. And according to the Times, for the people who called this block home, it’s "difficult to reconcile San Francisco’s liberal politics with the misery that surrounds them."

The 300 block of Hyde Street received 2227 complaints about cleanliness over the past decade, which was enough to register as more than any other block. The Times revisited this block several times throughout the course of 12 hours between 2PM and 2AM on a weekday and found the mentally ill, the drug addicted and residents who are at their wit's end.

And the implementation of the "poop patrol" can only do so much. The Times bumped into Yolanda Warren, who is a city resident that works around the corner from this block on Hyde Street. As she was getting her children off to school, the sidewalk in front of her office was "stained with feces and smelled like a latrine".

She, like many in the city, is forced to hose down the sidewalk every morning. Despite the city installing restrooms for the homeless, it hasn’t stopped them from going to the bathroom in the streets.

Warren told the Times: "Some parts of the Tenderloin, you’re walking, and you smell it and you have to hold your breath."

San Francisco now has around 4400 homeless people. Over the past three years, it has replaced more than 300 lamp posts that have been corrupted by dog and human urine. The urgency for this effort accelerated after a lamp post collapsed in 2015. Heroin needles are also a danger: the public works department and a nonprofit organization that helps them picked up 100,000 needles from the streets of the Tenderloin neighborhood over the last year. The city's public health department, which has its own needle recovery program, retrieved 164,264 needles in August alone through a disposal program and street cleanups.

One property manager in the area, Larry Gothberg, has managed a building on Hyde Street since 1982 and has kept a photographic journal of heroin users on the streets. He showed reporters from the Times a number of pictures of addicts sitting around motionless. He called it "the heroin freeze". He said, "They can stay that way for hours". 

The tenderloin neighborhood is an area of older subsidized single occupancy apartment buildings, laundromats and organizations that are set up to help the indigent. Studio apartments there are about $1500 a month, which is on the low-end of a city where the median rent is $4500 a month. Many of the residents of the area are immigrant families. Drug users in the area are supplied by dealers who sell heroin, crack cocaine and amphetamines. This leads to obvious disputes and, occasionally, violence.

Adam Leising, a Hyde Street resident, told the Times: “It’s like the land of the living dead. We are the most advanced country in the world, and that’s what people are having to live with here.”

Leising said that after having to look at the street on a daily basis, usually walking home after finishing his shift at a nearby restaurant, the desperation brought him to the brink of depression. In response, he helped found the Lower Hyde Street association, which is a nonprofit organization that tries to help clean up the street. He feels that the city isn’t doing anything to rectify the drug problem because it doesn't want to spread the problem throughout other parts of the city.

The Tenderloin police station has, so far this year, made more than 3000 arrests, including 424 for dealing drugs. They called drug dealing the most significant issue impacting the quality of life in the neighborhood. A police spokeswoman for the Tenderloin neighborhood called it a "priority area". Gavin Newsom, who is running for governor next month, stated last month that the city had reached a point of "enough is enough".

The mayor, London Breed, was elected in June and has since announced plans to provide 1000 additional beds for the homeless over the next two years. Her first objective is to use the law in order to place some people into "conservatorship", which is involuntary removal from the streets for those who are mentally ill.

She told the Times "There are about 100 to 150 people who are clearly mentally ill and who are cycling through the system and who need to be forced into conservatorship. We know all of them."

Her office states that 12% of the people who use the services from the city's Department of Public Health account for 73% of the costs. She has also made inspections of neighborhoods, sometimes carrying a broom with her.

Other business owners, like Glenn Gustafik, who opened his barbershop on Hyde two years ago to escape the high rent of operating downtown, have been engaged in a battle with drug users. The homeless outside of his shop break the branches off of a tree and use the sticks to clean their pipes. He has gone through four trees outside of his shop because of this. After making a request to the city, they provided a fifth tree with wire mesh around it to protect it.

As the evening comes around, the 300 block of Hyde becomes somewhat of a flea market. People on the street sell everything from bikes to individually shrink wrapped steaks. When dawn rolls around, the city and other private organizations pick up the needles and the trash. It costs the city $70 million annually.

Mario Montoya Jr., who has worked in the city's Public Works Department for 30 years, concluded:

“By noon everybody is up and out, and here we go again.”

          NIMBY alert: California residents don’t want homeless around people with… homes      Cache   Translate Page      

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

If you follow the news out of California on an even casual basis, you already know one thing about the state’s residents. By and large, they are among the wokest of the woke. They are in touch with the underserved and underprivileged. They are concerned about “gentrification” and how the wealthy are forcing out those with few opportunities. They’re also aware that they have a massive homeless problem on their hands and they regularly demand that the government do something about it.

In the City of Alameda, somebody finally took action on that last item from the list. An abandoned federal government building had been proposed by a nonprofit group to be the site of temporary housing for the homeless, with up to 90 apartment units serving the needs of that community. The building was already empty and it wouldn’t require any significant taxpayer dollars to get it operational. It’s a win-win for all concerned.

Unfortunately, the local residents aren’t having any of it and want the project shut down. The homeless, it seems will need to be housed elsewhere. (CBS San Francisco)

Neighbors outraged over a plan to turn an Alameda federal building into housing for the homeless voiced their opposition at a Monday night planning board meeting.

The facility sits across the street from the Crab Cove Visitors Center, a children’s center and a public park. Monday night’s vote is really a formality. A nonprofit’s plan to change the site into a haven for the homeless already has the green light.

But neighbors have mounted a last-ditch plan to stop it.

Area residents came to the meeting to fight back against a controversial makeover of this old federal building into 90 units of housing for older and newly homeless people.

Unfortunately for the locals at the planning board meeting, their protests will likely come to naught. The meeting was described as “a formality” because the city has already approved the project.

What were their complaints about moving these poor souls into their neighborhood? Well, they listed the possibility that the residents might “go off their meds” and “go bipolar.” They also expressed concerns about possible violence. Maybe it’s just me, but that doesn’t sound like a particularly woke attitude, does it?

It’s easy to poke fun at California residents when you consider how their activists tend to preach to the rest of the nation. It’s not so much fun when it’s in your backyard, is it? But the reality is that Alameda is dealing with a problem that’s already run out of control in cities all over the nation. (Go to Hawaii some time and check out their homeless situation.) In this case, the Golden State is one of the most expensive places to live in the country. When you combine that with a climate where you never have winter (which makes sleeping outdoors year-round a bit easier) the homeless problem is going to explode.

Much like many other societal ills, if you want to solve this problem perhaps the focus shouldn’t be on what to do with all the homeless. Just maybe you should figure out why so many people are winding up out on the streets to begin with and address the root cause. But for now, you can just pack them all on a bus and ship them off where they will be somebody else’s problem.

          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.

          Snap sinks to record low after analyst reportedly says it's 'quickly running out of money' (SNAP)      Cache   Translate Page      

Evan Spiegel

  • Snap is sliding on Tuesday after MoffettNathanson analyst Michael Nathanson reportedly slashed price target, saying the company is "quickly running out of money."
  • Last quarter the social-media company reported its first-ever decline in sequential daily active users and said its cash burn was up in the second quarter.
  • CEO Evan Spiegel recently sent out an internal memo admitting the company moved too fast in 2018 and laid out a path to profitability in 2019, but Nathanson is skeptical.
  • Watch Snap trade in real time here.

Snap shares were down more than 4% early Tuesday, hitting a record low of $7.15, after MoffettNathanson analyst Michael Nathanson slashed price target to $6.50 from $8, saying the social-media company is "quickly running out of money."

By the Nathanson's calculation, Snap needs a capital raise in the middle to end of 2019, as reported by StreetInsider.

Snap's second-quarter earnings, released on August 7, showed the company topped both the top and bottom lines, but that it suffered its first-ever decline in sequential daily active users. Additionally, the company's cash burn jumped to $234 million from $229 million in the same quarter of 2017. 

The decline in user trend "was primarily driven by a slightly lower frequency of use among our user base due to the disruption caused by our redesign," CEO Evan Spiegel said on a call with analysts after the earnings report.

In February, Snapchat released a controversial app redesign that triggered backlash from users — including celebrities like Kylie Jenner, who tweeted to her 24.5 million followers, "Sooo does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore?The main complaint was the redesign separated celebrity Snapchat stories from those that came from your friends. Jenner's tweet wiped out more than $1 billion from Snap's market capitalization in a single day. 

Last Week, Spiegel sent out an internal memo running over 6,500 words long, admitting the company moved too fast in 2018 — specifically referring to the controversial Snapchat redesign — adding that Snap has "lost the core of what made Snapchat the fastest way to communicate." The internal memo outlined company-wide goals for 2019, including accelerating revenue growth and achieving full-year positive free cash flow and profitability.

Commenting on Spiegel's internal memo, Nathanson, according to StreetInsider, said he is "skeptical" and that he doesn't "have faith in Snap’s leadership to navigate these rapids."

Snap was down 51% this year through Monday.

          Setka provides beautiful post design with AMP      Cache   Translate Page      

Editor’s note: The following was originally posted on Setka’s blog .


Setka provides beautiful post design with AMP
Setka has integrated its WordPress plugin with the AMP WP plugin

Technology company Setka creates products that help publishers and brands easily make beautiful and engaging content. Setka is a WordPress VIP Technical partner. One of those products, Setka Editor, is a WYSIWYG editor that allows users to put together well-designed article pages without having to code. Its team is distributed and based in San Francisco, New York, Berlin, Minsk, and Moscow.

Now, Setka has integrated its WordPress plugin with the AMP WP plugin . When installed on the same website they automatically increase the loading speed for mobile pages while retaining stylistic and branding elements.

Read on to learn more about this improvement, and to see how it worked on RealtimeBoard’s corporate blog.

The challenges of AMP integration

Setka saw several advantages in integrating with AMP clients who use editorial content as one of their key marketing pillars for brand building, lead generation and lead nurturing: pages load faster, caching happens on Google servers, and clients can create beautiful, customizable designs that work well on mobile devices.

“We wanted to make the editorial content created by the users of our WordPress plugin 100% AMP-ready, while having any design elements, including interactive and animated ones, be in the AMP format.” Katya Bazilevskaya, the co-founder and CEO of Setka

To ensure speed and usability on all devices, Setka had to implement all the requirements for AMP format: proprietary HTML tags, the restrictions of adding external scripts that aren’t part of AMP libraries, and the maximum size for inline styles up to 50 kb.

In addition, Setka wanted to make sure it worked with all three modes in the AMP WP plugin:

‘Classic’ offers a ready-made template for the theme and allows Googlebot to index the pages of the site as soon as the plugin is installed. ‘Paired’ assumes that the owner of the website or the creator of the theme has created separate templates for AMP and other versions of the website. ‘Native’ is seamless integration, where the website is created specifically for AMP, and there is no need to create separate links, templates, and so on.

The Setka Editor plugin retains functionality in all three modes and allows users to convert separate elements into an AMP notation.

Setka’s solutions

As part of the integration, Setka developers wrote four sanitizers for elements that weren’t compatible with AMP notations and created smaller files for styling elements that are in line with the design demands.

The animation sanitizer converts Setka Editor animations into AMP animations while keeping any interactive features like activation on a specific user action or elements that change state. The embed element sanitizer transforms a responsive embed into relevant AMP elements and correctly integrates them into the page. The gallery sanitizer transforms the component for displaying a series of images into the relevant AMP element. The image sanitizer displays the srcset attribute with all available resolutions, allowing the browser to decide which size is best for the user. This makes loading images faster and allows content to adapt to a device’s screen size.

So that clients can set up themes for displaying content, Setka created the Style manager. In it, the user can configure styles for different elements on their pages. For integration with the AMP plugin, the developers changed the process of generating styles and managed to fit into the 50 kb limit, leaving some space in size for adding external styles from plugins.

Thanks to the tree shaking technology that XWP created, the AMP WP plugin only chooses the styles actually used on the page, removing extra ones from the final version. This allows various plugins to add styles without the risk of the page not passing the AMP validation.

Even clients of the WordPress VIP platform can use the plugin because it considers the specific infrastructure of the platform, including its file system.


Setka provides beautiful post design with AMP
Increasing page load speed for RealtimeBoard

The first project that Setka tested this solution on was for RealtimeBoard , a software company working on a visual collaboration platform for distributed teams.

RealtimeBoard’s company blog is an important part of their marketing strategy. The team wanted it to stand out among similar solutions in the technology space, which involved careful consideration of its corporate identity. That’s why the design for articles, interviews and case studies is created with the Setka Editor.


Setka provides beautiful post design with AMP

At the same time the RealtimeBoard team was interested in the capabilities of AMP for increasing the speed of mobile page loading while retaining the diversity of design elements.

Setka developers helped adapt the WordPress theme of the RealtimeBoard blog in paired mode. Thanks to the release of the Style Manager, the styles used on the website were ready for AMP content. After implementing AMP, average First Meaningful Paint time of the blog pages was reduced from 7,2 to 1,9 sec.

          Confira as anotações do caderninho de Eddie Brock sobre o personagem surpresa do filme do Venom      Cache   Translate Page      

Se você já conferiu o filme do Venom, sabe já do que se trata a cena pós-credito do filme. Sim, como todos já cogitavam antes, Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson) é apresentado quando Brock vai visitá-lo em uma cela de prisão. Lá, o ator está com uma peruca ruiva e um penteado esquisito, o que o torna fiel ao psicótico personagem dos quadrinhos. E se você quiser saber mais de como é esse personagem nos cinemas, eis que um caderninho de anotações de Eddie Brock pode te ajudar a entender melhor quem é o Carnificina dos cinemas. Veja a foto tirada pelo site Comicbook, provavelmente durante as filmagens do filme:




De acordo com os rabiscos de Eddie, Kasady acumulou uma alta contagem de corpos ao longo de sua vida antes de ser preso na prisão San Quentin de San Francisco. Kasady empurrou sua avó por um lance de escadas, matando-a, depois seguindo para um massacre "enorme" em Nova York antes de abater 11 pessoas na penitenciária de segurança máxima da Ryker.

Brock descobriu que Kasady tem um complexo de Édipo e uma vez desenterrou o túmulo de sua mãe. O assassino serial do Brooklyn é descrito por Eddie como um maníaco homicida com “uma mente insana” e “um desejo de destruição”. Quando criança, o órfão Kasady cresceu no orfanato masculino St. Estes, que mais tarde foi incendiado - E Eddie suspeita que tenha sido Kasady. O incêndio matou o Administrador Disciplinar do lugar.

As anotações de Brock também revelam que Kasady torturou e matou o cachorro de sua mãe com uma broca e uma vez empurrou uma garota na frente de um ônibus, matando-a instantaneamente, quando ela rejeitou suas investidas. De acordo com as notas de Brock, para Kasady, um derramamento de sangue sem uma marca patenteada seria o mesmo que uma "liberdade suprema". E é curioso ver que  os detalhes coincidem com a história dos quadrinhos de Kasady, onde ele era um serial killer psicopata, com uma cruel sede de sangue muito antes de se unir ao simbionte alienígena vermelho e se tornar o perigoso supervilão conhecido como Carnificina.

"Eu obviamente tenho uma relação próxima com Woody", disse Fleischer numa conversa ao Comic Book. "E ele é um dos meus atores favoritos, se não é meu ator favorito, e ele também é um ser humano incrível. Então, quando estávamos pensando em incluir essa cena e lançar as bases para uma sequência em potencial, ele foi a primeira pessoa em que pensei e foi a única apenas porque egoisticamente estou muito animado para trabalhar com ele novamente, seja em Zombieland 2 ou na potencial sequência para este filme ", disse Fleischer.

"Mas se você lembrar de Natural Born Killers e de Mickey, o personagem que ele interpretou nesse filme,  verá que há uma ligação real que você pode traçar de Mickey para Cletus e eu também acho que ele nunca mais foi tão obscuro assim daquele jeito faz um tempo. Ele está sendo mais envolvido em comédias ou papéis de mentor nos filmes que atua", disse Fleischer. "Então, seria muito divertido dar-lhe a licença para enlouquecer de novo, que é o que o personagem exige e do qual ele é totalmente capaz e seria tão divertido de assistir." disse o diretor.

Já nos cinemas, o filme do Venom tem no elenco Tom Hardy como Eddie Brock, Michelle Williams como Anne Weying, Riz Ahmed como o Doutor Carlton Drake, Michelle Lee como Donna Diego, além de Woody Harrelson, Jenna Slate, Sam Medina, Reid Scott e Scott Haze. A direção é de Ruden Fleischer. Se quiser saber nossa opinião, confira nossa resenha clicando aqui!

          Photo Flash: First Look at the Cast of American Conservatory Theatre's MEN ON BOATS      Cache   Translate Page      

Get a first look at the cast of American Conservatory Theater's upcoming production of Men on Boats, Jaclyn Backhaus's subversive retelling of 19th-century American explorers, performing at A.C.T.'s Strand Theater October 17-December 16, 2018.

Spinning historical, theatrical, and gender conventions on their heads, this subversive tale of ten men, four boats, and two rivers contains none of the above. Pack your gear for this 21st-century theatrical spin on 19th-century American explorer and one-armed Civil War veteran John Wesley Powell, who assembles a brawny and eclectic band of men-soldiers, trappers, and adventurers-to explore Wyoming's waterways. Inspired by Powell's actual travel log from 1869, Jaclyn Backhaus's nimble and ingenious script is provocative, laugh-out-loud theater, performed by a cast of women who infuse America's historic myths of male conquest with a sly blast of subtext. With the speed and force of white-water rapids, Backhaus conjures her epic story-in which simple materials are transformed into perilous canyons and death-defying cliffs-out of movement and sheer imagination, shaping an innovative and innately theatrical play that became an off-Broadway sensation.

Under the direction of Tamilla Woodard (co-founder of PopUP Theatrics; Artistic Director of The Five Boroughs/One City Initiative at Working Theater), Men on Boatsfeatures a cast of ten local San Francisco Bay Area actors. They are (in alphabetical order): Arwen Anderson (King Lear at California Shakespeare Theater; Hamlet at Marin Shakespeare Company), Rosie Hallett (Red Speedo at Center REPertory Company; Thomas and Sally at Marin Theatre Company), Lisa Hori-Garcia (The Gangster of Love at Magic Theatre; Snow Queen at Marin Theatre Company), Libby King (RooseElvis at The TEAM; Uncle Vanya at East 13th Street Theatre), Amy Lizardo (The Unfortunates at A.C.T.; Quijote Nuevo at California Shakespeare Theater), Sarita Ocón (Twelfth Night at California Shakespeare Theater; Ghost Lightat Berkeley Repertory Theatre), Annemaria Rajala (A Little Night Music at A.C.T.;Our Enemies at Golden Thread Productions), Katherine Romans (A.C.T. M.F.A student; The Importance of Being Earnest at Livermore Shakespeare Festival), Liz Sklar (A.C.T. M.F.A. graduate; Seagull at Marin Theatre Company), and Lauren Spencer (King Charles III at A.C.T.; Anne Boleyn at Marin Theatre Company).

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

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

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

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

Set-up

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

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

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

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

They were dealt the following city cards:

Medic

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

Researcher

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

Quarantine specialist

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

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


Here's how things stack up at the start.

Initial city infection.

3 Cubes

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

2 Cubes


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

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

1 Cube

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

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

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

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

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

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


This is how things stand after the initial infection phase.

Round 1

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

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

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

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


Medic city draw


• Red - Beijing
• Yellow - Buenos Aires

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

Medic infection draw

• Blue - St. Petersburg
• Red - Osaka

Researcher

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

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

Researcher city draw

• Red - Taipei
• Black - Mumbai

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

Researcher infection draw

• Red - Manila
• Black - Moscow

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

Quarantine specialist

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

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

Quarantine Specialist city draw

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

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

Quarantine Specialist infection draw

• Yellow - Khartoum
• Yellow - Kinshasa

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

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

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

Round 2


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


Medic

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

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

Medic city draw

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

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

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

Medic infection draw

• Yellow - Los Angeles
• Red - Shanghai

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

Researcher

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

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

Researcher city draw

• Blue - Chicago
• Blue - New York

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

Researcher infection draw

• Black - Moscow
• Black - Baghdad

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

Quarantine Specialist

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

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

Quarantine Specialist city draw

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

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

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

Quarantine Specialist infection draw

• Red - Beijing
• Red - Osaka

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

Round 3


Characters and cards for round 3.



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


Medic

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

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

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

Medic city draw

• Blue - St. Petersburg
• Yellow - Johannesburg

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

Medic infection draw

• Blue - St. Petersburg
• Red - Manila

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

Researcher

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

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

Researcher city draw

• Red - Bangkok
• Blue - Milan

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

Researcher infection draw

• Yellow - Bogota
• Blue - Milan

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

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

Quarantine Specialist

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

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

Quarantine Specialist city draw

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

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

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

Quarantine Specialist infection draw

• Yellow - Mexico City
• Black - Chennai

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

Round 4





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

Medic

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

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

Medic city draw

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

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

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

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

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

Medic infection draw

• Yellow - Khartoum
• Yellow - Kinshasa

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

Researcher

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

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

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

Researcher city draw

• Black - Istanbul
• Red - Seoul

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

Researcher infection draw

• Yellow - Bogota
• Yellow - Mexico City

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

Quarantine Specialist

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

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

Quarantine Specialist city draw

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

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

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

Quarantine Specialist infection draw (now increased to three cards)

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

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

Round 5





Medic

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

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

Medic city draw

• Red - Ho Chi Minh City
• Black - Riyadh

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

Medic infection draw

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

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

Researcher

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

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

Researcher city draw

• Red - Manila
• Black - Kolkata

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

Researcher infection draw

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

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

Quarantine Specialist

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

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

Quarantine Specialist city draw

• Yellow- Santiago
• Blue - Atlanta

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

Quarantine Specialist infection draw

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

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

Round 6





Medic

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

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

Medic city draw

• Yellow - Sao Paulo
• Yellow - Lima

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

Medic infection draw

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

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

Researcher

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

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

Researcher city draw

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

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

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

Researcher infection draw

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

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

Quarantine Specialist

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

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

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

Quarantine Specialist city draw

• Black - Karachi
• Blue - Essen

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

Quarantine Specialist infection draw

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

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

Round 7





Medic

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

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

Medic city draw

• Yellow - Lagos
• Black - Delhi

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

Medic infection draw

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

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

Researcher

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

The End

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

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

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

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

          Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL feature bigger screens, Snapdragon 845, and wireless charging      Cache   Translate Page      

Google's new flagship smartphones are here.

The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are now official, and they've got some notable upgrades over their predecessors. Both phones have larger OLED displays, with the Pixel 3 boasting a 5.5-inch FHD+ screen and the Pixel 3 XL moving up to a 6.3-inch QHD+ display. And yes, just as the leaks predicted, the Pixel 3 XL has a notch at the top of its screen.

When it comes to raw specs, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are mostly similar. Both have a Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB or 128GB storage options. There's a rear fingerprint reader on both phones, a USB-C port, wireless charging support, and both lack a 3.5mm headphone jack. One big difference (besides the display size) of the two phones are their battery sizes: the Pixel 3 has a 2915mAh battery while the Pixel 3 XL's battery is 3450mAh.

Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL colors

Both Pixel 3 phones also share camera features. These include a 12.2MP dual pixel rear camera with a ton of features crammed into it, including 1.4um pixels, optical and electronic image stabilization, and an f/1.8 aperture.

Google is also adding several camera-focused software features into the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Top Shot uses AI to capture alternate photos in HDR+ when you take a motion photo and then recommend the best one to you. A Super Res Zoom feature uses computational photography to produce sharp details when you zoom in, and Night Sight will help you take more natural-looking photos in low light. There's also a Portrait Mode for adding blurry background to your photos and a Photobooth feature that uses AI to recognize when someone is smiling and snap a photo for you.

Google is also bundling a neat AI feature that'll let you screen calls and avoid spammers. The new Pixel phones are getting Google's Duplex feature that'll enable Google Assistant to perform phone tasks like making reservations. The first cities to get Google Duplex include New York City, Atlanta, Phoenix, and San Francisco, with more cities coming soon. And then there's Flip to Shhh, which will let you put your phone face down to silence the device, mute incoming notifications, and give you some peace and quiet.

The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are now available for pre-order from the Google Store, and they'll also be offered by Verizon and Project Fi. Both phones will launch on October 18th in the U.S. Color options include Just Black, Clearly White, and Not Pink.

Also announced today is the Pixel Stand. This wireless charging will prop your Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL upright to make it easier to read notifications, and it can show Google Photos images in a slideshow. When you've got it by your bed, the Pixel Stand can use ambient lighting that mimics the sunrise when your alarm goes off, and at night it can automatically enable Do Not Disturb.

          Report: First Known U.S. Case Of HIV Infection With Verified Adherence To PrEP      Cache   Translate Page      

A 21-year-old Latinx man in San Francisco, California, has contracted HIV despite adhering to a daily PrEP regime.

According to TheBodyPro.com, he is the first known HIV seroconversion with verified adherence to PrEP in the United States,

Medical experts were informed of the news at the annual IDWeek conference, run by the Infectious Diseases Society of America, this past weekend in San Francisco.

Reports show the man began PrEP through a city health clinic in San Francisco in late 2016. At the time, he was confirmed to be HIV negative.

Repeat testing during return visits at the three, six and ten month marks showed he had been consistent in taking the medication and he remained HIV negative. By analyzing samples of his hair, doctors were able to confirm he had adhered to the PrEP regime on a regular basis for the previous six months.

In early 2018, during a followup visit, he tested negative through a rapid test, but a more comprehensive RNA test came back positive. Further testing showed he was indeed HIV positive.

He was immediately placed on HIV medications and his viral load was suppressed where it has remained since treatment began.

Health care experts were able to identify that the man had acquired a particularly resistant strain of HIV usually identified with those who have begun treatment with HIV medications but stopped.

Researchers were able to determine that the man’s primary male partner had been diagnosed with HIV, used medications for a period of time but had stopped. His viral load was found to be very high and matched the 21-year-old’s strain. He has since returned to treatment.

This marks the sixth reported case of HIV infection while using PrEP.

Four cases, two in 2016 in New York and Toronto, and two in 2017 in North Carolina and Australia, are believed to be due to exposure to high viral loads of resistant strains of HIV.

Medical experts believe the fifth previous case, in Amsterdam, was the result of a gay man having “unusually high number” of sexual partners - an average of 56 partners a month - which may have repeatedly exposed him to HIV, according to aidsmap.com.

Even in light of this new report, health care professionals insist PrEP (currently being taken on a regular basis by over 350,000 people around the world) is extremely effective in combating HIV infection.

"We know PrEP is greater than 99% effective," Robert Grant, M.D. of the University of California San Francisco told TheBodyPro.com. "There are some cases where HIV will break through. We only have a handful of cases now, and next year, we'll probably have a handful more. Fortunately, these cases are caught early, treated, and suppressed quickly. The person goes from taking one pill a day to one pill a day. The biggest difference is stigma."

NBC News recently reported that while 1.2 million in the United States would be considered appropriate candidates for PrEP, only 120,000 prescriptions have been filled between 2012 and 2017.

SYNOPSIS: Growing Up Coy is a feature-length documentary that centers around a young Colorado family who engages in a highly publicized legal battle and landmark civil rights case, as they fight for their 6-year-old transgender daughter Coy Mathis’s right to use the girls’ bathroom at her elementary school. The Mathis family's landmark case in 2013, was the first in the United States to decide in favor of a transgender youth using the bathroom facility that corresponds with their gender identity. The film asks a universal question that any parent could face: “How far would you go to fight for your child’s equal rights?” More information at growingupcoy.com.

Since its founding in 2005, the quartet has quickly garnered the reputation as one of the finest young string ensembles performing today. Their instrumental interplay, which combines technical precision with warmth and vitality, has reaped accolades nationally and abroad, and elicited invitations from Itzhak Perlman and Pinchas Zukerman to be the quartet-in-residence at their respective summer festivals. In a review, The Strad wrote, "...a level of individual technical precision and a collective musical purpose that is endlessly compelling ... Sheer brilliance." Quartet members include Adam Barnett-Hart and Danbi Um, violins; Pierre Lapointe, viola; and Brook Speltz, cello.

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

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

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


BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kent Osborne, MD, director of the Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. “Their lectures about their work fulfill our mission of providing state-of-the-art information to scientists and physicians focusing on breast cancer.”

“On behalf of the American Association for Cancer Research, I wish to extend our sincere congratulations to Drs. Smith, Partridge, and Werb on receiving these highly deserved awards,” said Margaret Foti, PhD, MD (hc), chief executive officer of the AACR. “Their outstanding research contributions have propelled advances in breast cancer science and medicine and have helped to save countless lives from breast cancer as well as to extend and improve the lives of patients with metastatic disease. Clearly, breast cancer patients are the recipients of their spectacular research.”

Smith, a professor of cancer medicine at The Royal Marsden and the Institute of Cancer Research in London, is being recognized for his extraordinary research that has changed the direction of oncology in the United Kingdom and around the world. These accomplishments include his research and testing of aromatase inhibitors, his pioneering work in neoadjuvant (preoperative) endocrine therapy for patients with large operable cancers, and his major contributions to oncology training in the U.K. Smith will deliver a lecture titled “Hold That Scalpel! Using the Tumor to Determine the Treatment.”

Partridge, a professor of medicine at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, is being recognized for her work with young women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Through a developmental research cohort, she has characterized many of the complex medical and psychological challenges facing young women with breast cancer and has set the stage for future research in this understudied population. Partridge will present a lecture titled “Breast Cancer in Young Women: Understanding Differences to Improve Outcomes.”

Werb, a professor of anatomy and associate director of Basic Science at the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of California, San Francisco, will be honored for her pioneering studies involving the elucidation of the mechanistic role of the extracellular microenvironment in regulating breast epithelial cell function. Her research has led to a paradigm shift in the understanding of mammary gland development as well as breast cancer progression and metastasis. Werb’s lecture is titled “What Can We Learn from Breast Cancers that Metastasize or Don’t?”

Smith’s lecture will be presented on Wednesday, Dec. 5, at 11:15 a.m.; Partridge’s lecture, on Friday, Dec. 7, at 11:30 a.m.; and Werb’s lecture, on Thursday, Dec. 6, at 11:30 a.m. These SABCS talks will take place at the Henry B. González Convention Center, San Antonio.

          Kimono Robe. Kimono. Bridal Robes. Bridesmaid Robes. Spring is Here. Dressing Gown. Knee Length. Spring is Here. by ModernKimonoRobes      Cache   Translate Page      

40.00 USD

This fabulous fabric is arriving to my shop early April. You can pre order if you'd like and as soon as the fabric gets here, we will sew up your robe and get it out to you 2 Day Priority Mail.

These robes are custom cut and sewn to your order with loving care by me in San Francisco, CA., and are made with premium, designer 100% cotton. They are not coming from a factory or being manufactured and shipped to you from overseas!

Here is a recent quote I received from one of my many fabulous customers:

"Hello Kate,

After along day away from home, I got back hot (it is summer, and a scorching one at that, here in Sydney), tired, and ready for a bit of pampering. And there it was a small, soft parcel - yay! I knew it had to be from you - there was nothing else I was expecting. Here's what I loved:

1. Compact - exactly what I want for taking away on travels of any kind. You really don't want half your luggage taken up with a dressing gown and this packs into nothing.

2. On unpacking, through the clear plastic packaging, I was delighted to see a beautiful riot of colour and design. My gown is daffodils and dogwood - so gorgeous and cheerful. Fabulous!

3. Taking the gown out of the plastic - joy! A beautiful, fine, and luxurious cotton, perfect for our hot, sticky summers. Thank you gods above - I can now chuck out my dreadful cotton, but seriously stifling, boring, hospital-grade ill-fitting waffle-weave mood spoiler.

4. Truly the most comfortable, well-fitted, true-to-size garment I can recall purchasing in recent history. First - your wrap-around styling/fit is the first I've ever had that actually does fit! I feel comfortable - it doesn't gape and expose anything I don't willingly want to expose. It's elegantly long enough that I can bend over without fear of embarrassment! It's divinely flattering - dare I say it, I look alluringly willowy in your gorgeous gown:)

In short - it's fabulous! I love it! Were it not for the extravagance, I'd get one in each and every print and wear little else! Well done you and thanks Etsy for bringing you to me."


These robes are a perfect holiday gift for college students, or a perfect gift for someone you know who just needs a new, updated stylish robe this holiday season. Housewarming gift? Hostess gift? You name it, a unique and useful gift for anyone.

They also make a perfect bridal shower gift for a bride's getting ready robe on her big day. A gift she will wear and treasure forever.

Pregnant? Great robe to wear to the hospital for those first mommy and me pictures and then to wear after you and your little one arrive home. You will be happy to have it on during those long, sleepless nights! I know, I have three myself. This robe will make you feel put together all day long!

I created these robes for several reasons. I wanted a robe that wasn't the slinky, lacy robe your husband or boyfriend bought you, or a heavy terry robe that looks like your mother's (even though you may already be one) so I created this simple, beautiful 100% cotton robe for a couple of reasons. One, to slip on when you are blow drying your hair (so your wrapped towel doesn't keep falling down) and two, to wear something cute and functional while moving around your house. I am sure you can come up with your own reasons as well. I wear mine all the time. You will be amazed after you buy one how much time you will spend in your robe.

I also put a lot of thought into the construction of these robes as well. I think you will really appreciate the 3/4 length sleeve so while washing your hands or dishes your sleeves don't get wet. I envisioned women moving freely around the kitchen or bathroom without worrying about a long traditional kimono sleeve that could get in your way.

Sizing:

Small 0-6
Medium 8-10
Large 12-16
XL 18-22


Knee Length:

For Washing Instructions we recommend:

Tumble dry low, remove promptly

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day,

Kate

          MAKE AMERICA GERMANY AGAIN: THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY´S LEFT FLANK HAS IDEAS FOR FIXING THE COUNTRY / THE ECONOMIST      Cache   Translate Page      

Make America Germany Again

The Democratic Party’s left flank has ideas for fixing the country

Some of them have a Mitteleuropa flavour



TUCKER CARLSON, a Fox News host, and Bernie Sanders, a democratic-socialist senator, seldom agree. Yet on the matter of billionaires supposedly sponging off taxpayer largesse, they are completely simpatico. On September 5th Mr Sanders introduced a bill which would force large firms to pay taxes exactly equal to the amount of safety-net benefits consumed by their employees, including food stamps, housing vouchers and Medicaid. The target of Mr Sanders’s legislation, titled the “Stop Bad Employers by Zeroing Out Subsidies” or “Stop BEZOS” Act, was clear. Attacking Jeff Bezos, the founder and boss of Amazon, is a uniquely bipartisan pastime. The left of the Democratic Party views him as a latter-day Ebenezer Scrooge. Trump-cheerleaders like Mr Carlson despise him for owning the meddlesome Washington Post. Mainstream economists took a dismal view of the pitch.

Congressional Democrats, especially those eyeing a presidential run in 2020, are awash with bold policy ideas. In addition to Mr Sanders’s pitch, Kamala Harris, a Democratic senator from California, has offered a proposal to give generous tax credits to citizens who spend more than 30% of their incomes on rent. Elizabeth Warren, a progressive senator from Massachusetts, would like to up-end corporate boards by requiring that employees pick 40% of the members.

Start with Mr Sanders’s proposal. The cost of safety-net programmes like food benefits, Medicaid coverage and rental subsidies could easily amount to thousands of dollars per employee. A pitch to charge firms that amount would be a de facto head tax, strongly discouraging employment. “It’s essentially a tax on hiring low-skill workers, but worse,” says Samuel Hammond of the Niskanen Centre, a think-tank. “Since eligibility largely varies with children and dependants, it’s actually a tax on firms for hiring low-skill parents.” Companies would have perverse incentives to filter out the applicants they thought likeliest to be on benefits. Because they would be barred by law from asking about welfare status directly, they would probably resort to pernicious stereotypes (such as not hiring a middle-aged black woman without a wedding ring). It would also encourage companies to minimise low-skilled labour as much as possible, hastening automation.

Bad, worse, wurst

Ro Khanna, a Democrat from Silicon Valley, introduced an identical bill in the House of Representatives. While he concedes that automation is a real worry, he dismisses the discrimination critique offered by liberal economists. Though discrimination is notoriously difficult to prove in court, high penalties would still encourage firms to behave, Mr Khanna insists. Besides, he says, the point of the bill is to encourage companies to forgo the headache by paying their employees a higher minimum wage. “If you raise to a liveable wage, like $15 an hour, then you’re exempt. But if you’re not going to provide a decent wage, and you’re making trillions of dollars, then you’re going to be on the hook for all the public benefits that you’re consuming,” Mr Khanna says.




The idea that benefits schemes for low-income workers are corporate welfare is mainstream on the far left. Yet it is also quite strange, since it implies that for those at the bottom of the earnings distribution, wages would rise if the safety-net were slashed. “Some people could draw a message from the bill that programmes like SNAP [food stamps] or Medicaid are bad…because they’re fundamentally corporate subsidies,” says Robert Greenstein of the Centre on Budget and Public Priorities, a left-leaning think-tank. The earned-income tax credit, which operates explicitly as a wage subsidy for working-class families through the tax system, has been helpful in alleviating poverty. Indeed, many—including Mr Sanders—would like to see it expanded.

Similar problems haunt Ms Harris’s daring plan to offer tax credits for those facing high rents. She would like the federal government to reimburse households for rent that is over 30% of household income. Housing affordability is certainly a growing issue, especially in America’s booming cities. But that is because of constrained supply. Fuelling demand with billions in government cash while housing supply is stuck means that prices will only rise. The winners would be landlords, who would pocket most of the vast expenditure.

Ms Harris’s proposal would encourage people to rent flats well beyond their means. Those making less than $25,000 would get 100% of their excess rent subsidised by the government. In San Francisco, the costliest city in America, this means that such a person would pay at most $625 a month, even for a flat costing $4,681 a month. Uncle Sam would kick in the rest. Because the policy abruptly shifts reimbursement rates around cut-off points, those making $75,000 in San Francisco could lose as much as $8,500 of tax credits by making an additional dollar. In cities with high rents, those making up to $125,000 a year, hardly a needy bunch, would qualify for subsidies.

Wunderbar

Of all the proposals, Ms Warren’s Accountable Capitalism Act is the least destructive. Some of its provisions—like requiring firms with more than $1bn in revenue to obtain a federal charter and barring executives from selling shares for five years—are relatively modest. Others, like requiring corporations to create a “general public benefit”, seem vague and unenforceable. The most eye-catching proposal, which is for employees to elect 50% of the representatives on corporate boards of directors, seems radical but has been commonplace in Germany since 1976. Although such a system might not work as well in America, where employees are less likely to remain loyal for years, it is hardly the stuff of revolution.

None of the proposals will become law anytime soon. But they do foreshadow the themes of the next Democratic presidential primary, at a time when the party seems to be in its wilderness-wandering stage. Populist policies, such as sticking it to Mr Bezos, subsidising rent and giving more power to workers, are in the ascendant.

          Norma Díaz y Moisés Lembert entre los homenajeados por Miderec en el Día de los Clubes      Cache   Translate Page      

SANTO DOMINGO. Con una ofrenda florar en el Altar de la Patria y un acto general que encabezó el licenciado Danilo Díaz, en el que se reconoció a tres promotores deportivos y siete clubes de diferentes puntos del país, celebró el Ministerio de Deportes y Recreación, el “Día Nacional de los Clubes”, en recordatorio a cinco jóvenes del club Héctor J. Díaz asesinados el 9 de octubre de 1970.

En el acto realizado este martes 9, el Miderec entregó sendos homenajes a los forjadores deportivos y culturales desde clubes y ligas, los inmortales del Pabellón de la Fama del Deporte Moisés Lembert y Norma Díaz, así como al dirigente clubista Héctor Julio Pacheco. Cada uno recibió una placa que resalta sus méritos.

Por igual, a los clubes San Martín de Porres, de San Francisco de Macorís; Calero de Villa Duarte, Santo Domingo Este; Juan Pablo Duarte, de Barahona; Los Cachorros de Cristo Rey, del Distrito Nacional; Ramón Marrero Aristy, de La Romana; Parque Hostos, de La Vega; y Roberto Santana Lora, de Santiago.

En su turno, el ministro de Deportes Danilo Díaz señaló que esas personalidades y las entidades reconocidas, lo merecen por el trabajo que realizan en sus comunidades y que el Ministerio de Deportes lo seguirá haciendo cada año por este día, pero que entre fecha y fecha seguirá trabajando “junto a ustedes, día, tarde y noche, para que seamos mejores organizaciones clubistas, mejores asociaciones y federaciones y mejor Ministerio de Deportes”.

El funcionario, que estuvo acompañados, entre otros, por la senadora de la provincia Santo Domingo, Cristina Lizardo, resaltó el trabajo unificado que se está dando entre los diferentes sectores del movimiento deportivo, con el cual se está rescatando la confianza del sector privado y que se debe seguir trillando ese camino, para cuando se toque las puertas al presidente de la República y del Congreso, puedan decir que sí a las solicitudes para ell deporte.

Explicó que durante su gestión de dos años al frente del Ministerio y con Carlos Martínez Moronta en la Dirección Nacional de Clubes y Ligas, se han rescatado espacios para la práctica deportiva y cultural en más de mil comunidades del territorio nacional.

Añadió que por eso ha habido un avance, una gran transformación respecto a lo que encontraron, aunque muy lejos de lo que se quiere, porque no alcanzan los recursos, ya que el país tiene muchas cosas que necesitan inversión.

9.00 USD

Skinny tie clip - perfect for those of you who want a blank canvas to work with. Solder on findings, or use as is for a classic, modern look. We've plated these in our signature brushed matte silver finish - a perfect Mad Men-esque look! Each tie clip measures exactly 1 3/4" long, and they're super narrow, about 3mm wide. These tie clips are cool.

I started The Crafty Store in the Fall of 2009 after I grew frustrated with the lack of well made, interesting and useful ring & jewelry findings on the market. So, I decided to make my own! I stand behind my products 100% - these are components I use in my own jewelry designs, so I can vouch for their awesomeness.

Made in the San Francisco Bay Area with American-made components.

          Changes in Provider Treatment Patterns for Dupuytren’s Contracture: Analysis of Trends in Medicare Beneficiaries      Cache   Translate Page      
Background: Collagenase Clostridium histolyticum (CCH) injection has been shown to be a safe and effective treatment option for Dupuytren’s contracture. We hypothesize that the gaining popularity of CCH has resulted in a change in treatment patterns among providers, with increased utilization of CCH injections in the management of Dupuytren’s contracture from 2012 to 2014. Methods: The Medicare Provider Utilization and Payment Data Public Use Files were used to identify all surgeons who submitted claims for surgical fasciectomy, needle aponeurotomy (NA), and CCH injection. The data were analyzed for number of providers performing the procedures, number of procedures per provider, and location of practice. Results: From 2012 to 2014, the number of providers performing more than 10 open fasciectomies decreased from 141 to 131. In the same time, the number of providers performing more than 10 NAs increased from 63 to 70 with mean procedures per provider decreasing from 35 to 21. In contrast, the number of providers performing more than 10 CCH injections increased from 72 to 112, with mean injections per provider going from 24 to 20. The total number of injections performed increased from 1,734 to 2,220 from 2012 to 2014. The largest increase in number of injections and number of providers performing injections occurred in the South. Conclusions: The introduction of collagenase has changed treatment patterns with more providers treating Dupuytren’s contractures with CCH injections and a statistically significant decline in the number of NA procedures per provider.

          I 10 vini più costosi del mondo      Cache   Translate Page      

Non sempre si acquista vino per il piacere di berlo: talvolta lo si fa come investimento o per impreziosire la propria collezione privata. In questi casi, e in presenza di bottiglie particolarissime, le cifre possono diventare molto importanti. 

Per esempio, tra i più cari al mondo riportati dall'affermato "servizio enciclopedico" Wine Searcher nel 2018 c'è Romanée-Conti Grand Cru Cote de Nuits che può arrivare a costare anche 110.000 euro. Curiosi, quindi, di leggere la classifica?

Prima di proseguire, un'avvertenza di metodo: sono stati esclusi nella lista gli champagne e la quotazione è stata convertita in euro al cambio odierno, arrotondando per difetto.

10
Cabernet Sauvignon di Inglenook, 1941 - euro 18.125
Venduta nel 2004, è considerata dagli esperti una delle bottiglie di vino statunitense più care. È stata prodotta dalla casa vinicola Inglenook, fondata nel 1879 nella Napa Valley, in California, e acquistata nel 1975 da Francis Ford Coppola grazie ai soldi guadagnati con il film Il Padrino.

9
Romanée-Conti di DRC, 1990 - euro 20.650
È un Pinot Nero prodotto dalla tenuta Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, in Borgogna, Francia. È particolarmente costoso a causa del basso rendimento delle vigne, e nel 1996 la casa d'aste Sotheby's ne ha battuta una cassa da otto bottiglie per 132.880 sterline (che fa appunto 20mila euro e spicci a bottiglia).

8
Grange Hermitage di Penfolds, 1951 - euro 28.222
Prodotto con uva di Syrah e piccole quantità di Cabernet Sauvignon, il Grange Hermitage è la punta di diamante della casa vinicola Penfolds, una delle più antiche d'Australia (fondata nel 1844). L'annata del 1951 è particolarmente preziosa perché ne esistono solamente una ventina di bottiglie, tutte da collezione. Ecco spiegata la somma spesa da un collezionista australiano nel maggio 2004.

7
Sherry di Massandra, 1775 - euro 31.953
È il vino liquoroso più antico prodotto dalla casa vinicola di Massandra, situata in Crimea. Il prezzo strappato durante un'asta organizzata da Sotherby's nel 2001 è dovuto soprattutto all'età e ne fa lo Sherry più costoso del mondo.

6
Sauternes di Château d'Yquem, 1787 - euro 73.456
Nel film Red 2, il personaggio interpretato da John Malkovich dice che lo Château d'Yquem del 1847 è il vino più costoso al mondo. Sbaglia, ma l'annata 1787 di questo Premier Cru Supérieur conquista comunque la nostra classifica e svetta fra i più cari vini bianchi. Ad aggiudicarsi la bottiglia record è stato, nel 2006, un anonimo collezionista statunitense.

5
Bordeaux di Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1945 - euro 84.191
Questo prezzo è stato raggiunto da un anonimo compratore durante un'asta di Christie's, nel 1997. Si tratta di una bottiglia modello Jéroboam, cioè con una capacità di tre litri, e questo ha contribuito al costo finale, che però dipende soprattutto dal fatto che stiamo parlando di uno dei vini più famosi al mondo (citato anche da James Bond) e di una delle migliori annate del secolo scorso.

4
Mertol di Château Cheval Blanc, 1947 - euro 99.257
Anche in questo caso si tratta di un Jéroboam, venduto nel 2006 a San Francisco. E anche in questo caso la capienza della bottiglia conta solo fino a un certo punto: l'aspetto determinante è che Château Cheval Blanc è fra le case vinicole migliori del pianeta, una delle quattro ad aver conquistato la vetta della classificazione di Saint-Émilion.

3
Château Lafite, 1787 - euro 117.530
Le ragioni dell'eccellenza di questa bottiglia? Viene da una casa vinicola di chiara fama e che produce Bordeaux sopraffini – anche se questo, vecchio più di 200 anni, non si beve: si colleziona. Inoltre, la bottiglia ha fatto parte della collezione privata del Presidente Thomas Jefferson, insieme allo Château d'Yquem che sta in sesta posizione. Ora appartiene all'editore Malcolm Forbes, quello della rivista Forbes, che l'ha acquistata nel 1985.

2
Château Margaux, 1787 - euro 165.275
La storia di questa bottiglia è curiosa: era anch'essa parte della collezione di Thomas Jefferson e apparteneva al mercante di vini William Sokolin, che nel 1989 la portò con sé a una cena organizzata da Château Margaux presso il Four Season Hotel di New York. Qui un cameriere la urtò, facendola cadere e mandandola in pezzi. Sokolin chiese all'assicurazione un risarcimento di 500mila dollari, ottenendone 225mila (che fanno appunto 165mila euro e spicci). Di fatto la bottiglia non è mai stata venduta, ma merita comunque di entrare in classifica.

1
Cabernet di Screaming Eagle, 1992 - euro 228.228
Questo rosso, prodotto da una casa vinicola californiana, occupa la vetta in virtù dei soldi spesi nel corso di un'asta del 2000, dove appunto una Imperial da sei litri di Cabernet fu venduta per l'equivalente di 500mila dollari. L'intento benefico dell'iniziativa gli fa però occupare un ruolo trascurabile se parliamo di collezionismo puro.

Inspired by the Golden Horn (Chrysoceras) of Istanbul's Bosphorus Strait, the one that links Europe to Asia, John C. Fremont thought it befitting that the charming city's majestic bay have an equally memorable name and promptly christened it "The Golden Gate". After years of deliberations, construction finally commenced on the much-needed bridge across the Bay on January 5, 1933. The Majestic "one of its kind' bridge - built at the cost of millions of dollars and eleven lives that were lost during construction - was opened to vehicular traffic more than four years later, on May 28, 1937. The Golden gate Bridge remains one of the most photographed tourist attractions in the world, and has come to symbolize San Francisco. Yet, the glamorous city has many other fascinating attractions that are as alluring as the Bridge itself. For instance, San Francisco's Chinatown is one of the world's biggest oriental settlements outside of China and few places in the world are better known than the Fisherman's Wharf. This fascinating DVD from a2zcds.com provides a delightful peek at San Francisco as it was in the early part of the 20th century and explains why millions proudly call it home.

          Wini Kessler: A pioneer for women in wildlife      Cache   Translate Page      
Like Aldo Leopold, this year’s Aldo Leopold Memorial Award winner Wini Kessler finds important lessons from what seem like mundane events. But unlike Leopold, Kessler, a member of The Wildlife Society for 45 years who served two terms on council including being president, faced the added hurdle of being a woman in the field of wildlife biology, when women were not yet accepted in the profession. In fact, Kessler is only the second woman to receive the award, which is one of the most important awards in the profession. At her Aldo Leopold keynote address, “The Gifts of the Dying Wolf and other ‘Aha’ Moments,” Kessler shares her history — starting off as a small girl spending much of her time at the San Francisco Zoo — and her career path, pointing out how essays from Leopold, the father of wildlife management, helped guide her through some of her major hurdles. Most helpful were the “dying wolf” moments, which Kessler explains come from one of Leopold’s encounters with a wolf that he hunted. Seeing the “fierce green fire” die in the wolf’s eyes moved Leopold to think differently about predators and their management. “Aha” moments like these are important in shifting [...]

          When Giving Birth For The First Time, Push Away       Cache   Translate Page      

If you're a first-time mother and you opt for epidural anesthesia during labor, your doctor may suggest you wait about an hour after your cervix is completely dilated before you start trying to push the baby down the birth canal.

But a study published Tuesday in JAMA, the flagship journal of the American Medical Association, suggests that might not be the best advice.

"Our findings suggest that women becoming moms for the first time should begin pushing right away when they become completely dilated, for the best outcome for themselves and for their babies," says obstetrician Alison G. Cahill of Washington University in St. Louis, who headed the study.

Until now, the evidence supporting either method has been mixed, Cahill says. As a result, advice about when to push is about 50-50, she says.

One school of thought encourages women to push immediately after the cervix is dilated. The other says, "Wait, take some time." Typically, that means waiting for about an hour after the cervix is completely dilated.

"The thought was perhaps women didn't need to do as much work to push the baby out and that the baby would make progress without those efforts," Cahill says. It was also thought that delaying pushing could increase the likelihood of a healthy vaginal delivery and avoid forceps or a cesarean section — and even shorten the overall delivery time.

But that wasn't the case. Delayed pushing made no difference in whether women had C-sections or not, she says.

The study was carried out at six U.S. medical centers with 2,414 women who were at or beyond 37 weeks' gestation. Their average age was 26.5 years. The women hadn't previously given birth.

They were randomly assigned to one of two groups once they reached complete cervical dilation. Half were told to begin pushing immediately; the other half were told to wait an hour.

All the women received pain medication for labor and delivery.

Delayed pushing had some adverse consequences. Four percent of women who waited to push had excessive bleeding after delivery compared with 2.3 percent who pushed right away. The delayed pushers had more bacterial infections: 9.1 percent versus 6.7 percent of the women who pushed immediately.

Cahill says these reductions in adverse consequences for immediate pushing are meaningful since infection can be serious and even life-threatening for both mother and baby.

And there was another benefit to pushing right away. "The second stage of labor for women who pushed immediately was a little more than a half an hour faster," says Cahill, "and that shorter second stage of labor is healthier for both moms and babies."

Dr. Christopher Zahn, vice president of practice activities at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, says the take-home message is crystal clear: There are no significant benefits to delayed pushing, and delaying actually increases the risk of adverse events, particularly for the mother.

"This is a very well-done study with a large number of patients," Zahn says.

Zahn says the college's practice guidelines will be updated based on these findings to advise doctors that delayed pushing won't increase the odds of a normal vaginal delivery and, on top of that, it can increase the risk of "adverse problems for Mom."

The findings and new guidelines come at a time when the medical community strongly encourages vaginal delivery over C-sections, which can carry many negative consequences for both women and babies.

A cesarean is a "major abdominal surgery," says Dr. Dana Gossett, who directs general obstetrics and gynecology at the University of California, San Francisco. Risks include "increased bleeding, blood transfusions, damage to other organs particularly the bladder, internal scarring, risk of hysterectomy, risk of infection and even increased risk of death."

In an editorial accompanying the study, Gossett calls the findings an important contribution in managing labor and delivery in an "evidenced-based fashion" while not jeopardizing maternal or fetal health.

Any practice that can reduce the number of cesarean deliveries, she says, is highly worthwhile, especially considering that the rate of C-sections has "really shot up not just in the U.S. but around the world."

Every year in the U.S., there are almost 4 million births. About a third are cesarean deliveries.

San Francisco has accepted a statue recognizing women forced into prostitution by the Japanese Army.

Many of those women felt so ashamed that they never went back to their families afterward. Their culture taught them that they were to blame for what had been done to them, rather than the perpetrators who did it.

You can only be to blame for what you do, or fail to do, never for what others do to you.

Magyar festők és grafikusok életrajzi lexikona I-II.
Grafikus, festő. Marosvásárhelyen kezdte művészeti tanulmányait, első mestere Bordy András volt, aki első tárlatát is szervezte. Itt került kapcsolatba Erdély akkori szellemi vezetőivel, Kós Károllyal, Nagy Imrével és Szolnay Sándorral, akik felismerték tehetségét és segítették fejlődését. 1946-ban került Budapestre. Felvételt nyert a Képzőművészeti Főiskolára, ahol Szőnyi István volt a tanára. 1950-ben a Dekorációs Nemzeti Vállalatnál dolgozott, majd koholt vádak alapján tíz évre ítélték, ebből egyet töltött le. Szabadulása után, 1951-ben megalakította a József Attila körúti Alkotóközösséget. Propaganda- és reklámanyagokat készítettek. 1952-ben megvált a közösségtől. 1951-60 között mintegy 600 könyvet illusztrált. Első jelentős munkája Csehov novelláskötetének illusztrációja volt, ekkor alakította ki stílusteremtő vonalrajzait, amelyekkel számos díjat nyert külföldön. Könyvillusztrációiban felhasználta a rézkarc technikáját is. Az 1950-es évek második felétől készítette sajátos, puha felületeket létrehozó, hidegtű technikával készült rézkarcait. Legsikeresebb az Omar Khajjám Rubáiját lett, mely 1964-ben a British Museum pályázatán bekerült a XX. század harminc legszebb könyve közé. Már ezekben az években is folyamatosan festett grafikai tevékenysége mellett. 1960-70 között főleg festészettel foglalkozott, legismertebb művei ekkor készültek. 1970-től Torontóban és Los Angelesben élt. Hazatérése után tevékenyen részt vett a Hollóházi Porcelángyár Stúdiójának megalapításában. Előbb Sopronba, majd Váradra költözött, ahol jelenleg is él. Bútortervezéssel, divattal, ékszerrel és porcelánfestészettel kísérletezik. Egyénisége, festészeti és grafikai munkássága különös része a magyar képzőművészetnek, a művészi életnek. Képei kivétel nélkül figuratívak, mégis olyan új, gazdag tartalmat hordoznak, olyan formai, technikai, művészeti megoldások vonulnak fel, amelyek messze a narratív ábrázolások fölé emelik őket. Művei három főkategóriába sorolhatók, úgymint a fekete-fehér vonalas rajzok, amelyek leginkább illusztrációk; a szintén vonalas, de már egyszerűbb, geometrikushoz közelítő formavilágú alkotások, melyek fekete-fehérek, néha arannyal kiegészítve, ezek gyakran kerámia és porcelánképek, végül a festmények, illetve hidegtűs eljárással készített rézkarcok. A festmények és hidegtűs rézkarcok adják művészetének gerincét. Ezek a kompozíciók a szimbolizmus és szürreál határán mozognak, valójában egyik kategóriába sem sorolhatók be. Rejtélyes, sejtelmes nőalakok, a világ bölcsességét hordozó aggastyánok vagy fura szerzetek, lidércek és szellemek műveinek szereplői. Áthatolhatatlan erdők, vénséges vén fák, az éjszaka baljós csendjébe burkolt városok, a képzelet szülte tájak veszik körül őket. Az 1960-as évek óta számos hazai és külhoni kiállításon szerepelt. Alkotásait bemutatta Sao Paulo-ban, és a Velencei Grafikai Biennálén, Ammánban, Berlinben, Krakkóban, Helsinkiben, Párizsbn, Bécsben, Mexikóvárosban, Johannesburgban, Torontóban, Monterálban, Ottawában, Vancouverben, Tokióban, New Yorkban, Los Angelesben, San Franciscóban, New Orleansban, stb. Díjak: a Magyar Köztársaság Érdemérem tiszti keresztje; Munkácsy-díj, aranyérem, Lipcse. Művei helyet kaptak itthoni és külföldi közgyűjtményekben, valamint jeles magángyűjteményekben.

Munkácsy-díjas grafikus és festő. Marosvásárhelyen kezdte művészeti tanulmányait, első mestere Ciupe Aurél volt. A bp. -i Képzőművészeti Főiskolán Szőnyi István volt a tanára. Pályáját mint festő kezdte, de 1955 óta mint grafikus is tevékenykedik. Az 1960-as évek óta számos hazai és külhoni kiállításon szerepelt. Alkotásait bemutatta Sao Paulo-ban, és a Velencei Grafikai Biennálén is. Bravúros technikai megoldású lapjai (olaj-grafika) és könyvillusztrációi nagyon népszerűek. Egy ideig Kanadában, majd egy évtizedig az USA-ban tevékenykedett, igen keresett művész volt. Hazatérve, a Hollóházi Porcelángyár stúdiót alapított nevével. Visszafogottan szép opálos-szürkében játszó képzeletbeli alakokat és vadul búrjánzó keleti motívumokat alkalmaz a porcelánfestésben. (SzR-SzE, Műv. -1985)Magyar festők és grafikusok adattára
Festő, grafikus, Munkácsy-díjas. A Képzőművészeti Főiskolán Szőnyi István növendéke volt. Pályáját mint festő kezdte, majd 1955 óta grafikusként működik. A hatvanas évek óta jelentkezik a nyilvánosság előtt; 1964-ben és 1967-ben a Dürer Teremben, 1964-ben Szegeden, 1965-ben Bulgáriában, 1967-ben Olaszországban, 1969-ben a Derkovits Teremben állított ki. Szerepelt több európai fővárosban, továbbá a brnói, a Sao Paulo-i grafikai biennálékon és az 1960-as Velencei Biennálén. Bravúros technikai megoldású lapjai (olaj-grafika) és könyvillusztrációi nagyon népszerűek. Amerikában, ahol egy évtizedre második otthonára lelt, körülrajongott, jól fizetett, divatos művész. Hazatérve a Hollóházi Porcelángyár Stúdiót alapított nevével, fantasztikus termelékenységgel ontja a festett tálakat, tányérokat, vázákat, faliképeket. Visszafogottan szép opálos-szürkében játszó képzeletbeli alakokat és vadul burjánzó keleti motívumokat alkalmaz. Közben Hollóházáról áttette működési székhelyét Sopronba. 1983. márciusában rendezték meg nagyszabású tárlatát a Vigadó Galériában. - Irod.: Szij Rezső: Szász Endre.

Festő, grafikus, Munkácsy-díjas. A Képzőművészeti Főiskolán 1946-tól Szőnyi István növendéke volt. Kezdetben festőként, 1955-től főleg grafikusként működik. Több száz könyvet illusztrált (Villon összes versei; Omar Chajjam; Rubayat; Kalevala; Gorkij: Éjjeli menedékhely; Solohov: Emberi sors, stb. ), melyekkel számos nemzetközi kiállításon nyert díjat (Lipcse: 1965; Brno: 1966. stb. ). Nagyméretű pannót készített az auschwitzi magyar elmékmúzeum és a Petőfi Irodalmi Múzeum számára. Bravúros technikájú szürrealisztikus rajzait 1967-ben mutatta be a Dürer Terem. Művészeti lexikon I-II.
Festő, grafikus, iparművész, Munkácsy-díjas.
Szőnyi István keze alatt tanult a Képzőművészeti Főiskolán. A hatvanas évek óta jelentkezik a nyilvánosság előtt; fontosabb hazai kiállításai: Dürer Terem (1964, 1967), Szeged (1964), Derkovits Terem (TV-Galéria - 1968), Pécs (1970), Csók Galéria (1979), Miskolci Galéria (1982), Vigadó Galéria (1983), Sopron (1984). Önálló tárlatai voltak Bulgáriában, Lengyelországban, Olaszországban, az NDK-ban, Kanadában, az USÁ-ban, Mexikóban, Dél-Afrikában, Japánba, Franciaországban és másutt. 1965-ben Munkácsy-díjat kapott. Hat különböző nemzetközi grafikai és könyvművészeti díj tulajdonosa. Jelenleg felváltva Magyarországon és Amerikában él. - Élményeit elsősorban az irodalomból meríti; par excellence illusztrátor, a klasszikus és modern irodalom remekei hosszan gyűrűző gondolatsort indítanak el benne. Technikai tudása virtuóz, színérzékenysége, koloritgazdagsága és jellemzőképessége páratlan színvonalú. Legjobb műveiben a realitás, a pszichologizálás és a látomásosság egységét keresi, a világ szimbolikus megjelenítésére tör. Jeles illusztrátor, újabban kerámiával, porcelánfestészettel is foglalkozik. Számos porcelánból égetett falképet készített közösségi épületekbe. (Győri Kisfaludy Színház, Hotel Hilton, Kaposvári Megyei Tanács épülete stb. ). Kortárs magyar művészeti lexikon I-III.
1946: MKF, mestere: Szőnyi István. 1965: Munkácsy-díj; 1992: Magyar Köztársasági Érdemrend tisztikeresztje; Lipcsei Aranyérem. Már gyermekkorától kezdve természet után rajzolt. Marosvásárhelyen érettségizett. Itt került kapcsolatba Erdély akkori szellemi vezetőivel, Kós Károllyal, Szolnay Sándorral és Nagy Imrével, akik felismerték tehetségét és segítették fejlődését. Tanára itt az akvarellista Bordy András volt, aki Szász Endre első kiállítását szervezte. 1946-ban került Bp. -re. 1950-ben a Dekorációs Nemzeti V. -nál dolgozott, koholt vádak alapán eredetileg tíz év börtönre ítélték fegyverrejtegetésért, ebből egyet töltött le. Szabadulása után, 1951-ben megalakította a József körúit Alkotóközösséget, ahová volt kollegái tartoztak. Propaganda- és reklámanyagokat készítettek. 1952-ben Szász Endre megvált a közösségtől. 1951 és 1960 között mindegy 600 könyvet illusztrált. Első munkája Csehov novelláskötetének illusztrációja volt, ekkor alakította ki stílusteremtő vonalrajzait, melyekkel számos díjat nyert külföldön. A hazai könyvillusztrálásban azóta is főként ez a stílus a meghatározó. Könyvillusztrációiban felhasználta a rézkarc technikáját is. Az 50-es évek második felétől készítette sajátos, puha felületeket létrehozó, hidegtű technikával készült rézkarcait. A legsikeresebb az Omar Khajjám Rubáiját lett, amely 1964-ben a British M. pályázatán bekerült a XX. század harminc legszebb könyve közé. Már ezekben az években is folyamatosan festett grafikai munkássága mellett. 1960 és 1970 között főleg festészettel foglalkozott, legismertebb művei ekkor készültek. Próbálkozott filmművészettel is. Mintegy három évig dolgozott a filmgyárban, és ő volt az Egri csillagok látványtervezője. 1970-től Torontóban és Los Angelesben élt. Hazatérése után részt vett a Hollóházi Porcelángyár Stúdiójának megalapításában. Előbb Sopronba, majd Váradra költözött, ahol jelenleg is él. Ékszerrel, divattal, bútortervezéssel és porcelánfestészettel is kísérletezik. Szász Endre egyénisége, festészeti és grafikai munkássága különös része a magyar képzőművészetnek és a művészi életnek. Képei kivétel nélkül figuratívak, mégis olyan új, gazdag tartalmat hordoznak, olyan formai, technikai és művészeti megoldásokat vonultatnak fel, amelyek messze a narratív ábrázolás fölé emelik őket. Alakjai sajátosak, egyéniek, sokan próbálják utánozni, ill. ennek alapján hamisítani. Művei három fő kategóriába sorolhatók, úgymint a fekete-fehér vonalas rajzok, amelyek legtöbbször illusztrációk; a szintén vonalas, de már egyszerűbb, geometrikushoz közelítő formavilágú alkotások, melyek fekete-fehérek, néha arannyal kiegészítve, ezek gyakran kerámia és porcelánképek, végül a festmények, illetve hidegtűs eljárással készített rézkarcok. Az első kategóriába tartozó munkák lendületes, gyakran bővérű illusztrációk vagy önálló rajzok, amelyek a Barcsay-féle anatómiára épülnek, de sajátos Szász Endre stílusban. A második kategória alkotásai talán a legelterjedtebbek, s így a legismertebbek. Számos fali kerámia, ill. polcerlántárgy díszítésénél alkalmazza ezt a megoldást a művész. A műfaji követelményeknek megfelelően ezek kevésbé részletezhetők, túlnyomórészt nagy, tiszta formákból állnak. Így messziről is jól látható a teljes kompozíció és annak minden mozzanata, illetve nem vész el a funkcionális célokat szolgáló tárgyak aprólékos díszítésében. A festmények és hidegtűs rézkarcok adják Szász Endre művészetének gerincét, ezekből táplálkoznak és nőnek ki az alkalmazott grafikai és egyéb technikai megoldással készült alkotások. Ezek a kompozíciók a szimbolizmus és a szürreál határán mozognak, de valójában egyik kategóriába sem sorolhatók be. Rejtélyes, sejtelmes nőalakok, a világ bölcsességét hordozó aggastyánok vagy fura szerzetek, lidércek és szellemek műveinek szereplői. Áthatolhatatlan erdők, vénséges vén fák, az éjszaka baljós csendjébe burkolt városok, a képzelet szülte tájak veszik körül őket, de az alakok uralják az őket körülvevő vidéket, s mivel szinte mindig szemben állnak a nézővel, igy a kivülállót is. Nem véletlen, hogy ezek a képek is rendkívüli sikert arattak világszerte. Mára Szász Endre képeinek egész gyűjtőköre alakult ki.

          Security takes center stage at Google’s hardware event      Cache   Translate Page      

Yesterday’s big Google news involved the revelation that a software glitch in Google+ had left data from hundreds of thousands users vulnerable. But today, Google is pushing a message of privacy. At its big hardware event in New York, Google executives repeatedly emphasized that security is baked into all of the company’s products.

“The big breakthroughs you’re going to see are not in hardware alone,” said Rick Osterloh, Google’s senior VP of hardware at Google. “By combining Titan Security both in the data center and on devices, we’ve created a closed loop for your data across the Google ecosystem.” He then promised that there would be more talk of security efforts throughout the program.

Google Titan first emerged roughly a year ago as a homegrown chip to secure Google’s cloud. It debuted at the 2017 Cloud Next event in San Francisco as a meaty promise to protect enterprise client data. The chip allows Google to prevent unauthorized access at the processor level, and it also scans hardware for tampering. “It allows us to maintain a level of understanding in our supply chain that we otherwise wouldn’t have,” Neal Mueller, Google’s cloud marketing head, told Reuters last year.

Titan takes on new relevance both in light of the Google+ vulnerability, but also Bloomberg’s report that hackers are infiltrating big tech companies at the chip level. (Apple, Amazon, and the U.S. government have denied the substance of Bloomberg’s reporting, but the risk is real.)

While Google’s secure chips may have started in the cloud, they’re now embedded in the new gadgets the company announced today: the Pixel 3 smartphone, Pixel Slate tablet, and Google Home Hub smart display/smart-home controller. Of course, security has been a component of such devices before, but Google doesn’t often call it out so bluntly.

“We specifically did not put a camera on Home Hub,” said Diya Jolly, Google’s VP for product management, as she revealed the new device, which is a digital picture frame that can also read back calendar events, weather, and traffic reports (of course, it does search, too). Jolly said that Google recognized that people may not want cameras in the most private areas of their home, like a bedroom. But it was a strange call-out, since Google already puts cameras in your home through the Pixel phones and Nest Cam home-security cameras.

That’s why it’s always made sense for Google to stay away from positioning itself as a privacy advocate like Apple does, for instance. Fundamentally, it isn’t one. Regardless of the glossy product updates and push into hardware, Google still makes the vast majority of its money putting ads against gobs of user data. All these other products are essentially ventricles that feed into Google’s great body of user data. It not only sees everything you search for, it wants to handle the lock on your doors, the security cameras on your property, and the temperature of your domicile.

But the company can promise the information you share with it will remain secret—at least between you and Google. In August, Google launched a $50 multi-factor authentication key for consumers, a technology typically reserved for big enterprise and government workers. Even if Google wants to give this level of security to the masses, the problem is that people don’t want to make the effort to secure themselves: In January, at the Usenix Enigma security conference, a Google engineer told attendees that only 10% of Gmail users use two-factor authentication to make life harder for hackers.

The messaging at Google’s hardware event takes a different approach. The company is saying it’s focused on protecting your data—even if you aren’t.

          SKELETON KEY Dominates J/111 North Americans      Cache   Translate Page      
J111 NA winners(Macatawa Bay, MI)- Sixteen teams competed over the three-day event for the 2018 J/111 North American Championship title hosted by Macatawa Bay Yacht Club in Holland, MI. The fleet was treated to a broad range of sailing conditions, from flat waters and light airs in the beginning, then concluding with 18-25 kt winds for an epic “blowing dogs off chains” finale in huge, steep seas from the southwest. Continuing their success in major J/111 events, it was Peter Wagner’s SKELETON KEY from San Francisco, CA that was crowned the 2018 J/111 N.A. Champion.

J111 sailing downwindDay 1- Light, Tricky Winds
Light winds greeted the fleet on the first day, a breeze with a lot of streaks and lulls in between. Jim Connelly’s Slush Fund figured out the conditions in the pair of races, posting a 2-1 on the day for the lead at 3 points. Just two ticks behind in second place is Jeffrey Davis’ Shamrock, who recorded a solid 3-2 for 5 points. Peter Wagner’s Skeleton Key started the day with a bullet but added a sixth for 7 points and third place.

Following 2017 J/111 World Champion Wagner in the opening match were Connelly and Davis. Then Connelly and Davis each moved up a notch in race two, taking first and second ahead of Bradley Faber’s Utah.

J/111 surfingDay 2- More Moderate Winds
Wagner’s Skeleton Key had a near perfect day on Thursday to move into the lead. Good breeze allowed three races, two of which were won by 2017 J/111 World Champion Wagner. Skeleton Key also had a second in the middle contest, ending with 11 net points in the no-discard series. Jim Connelly’s Slush Fund stumbled in the last race of the day, dropping to second overall with 23 points. The consistency of Bradley Faber’s Utah put them in third with 27 points among the 16-boat fleet.

Chasing Wagner in the initial race were Richard Witzel’s Rowdy and Connelly. Then, it was Connelly back in the driver’s seat, beating Wagner and the Andrew and Sedgwick Ward team on Bravo. The final battle went to Wagner again, as Witzel earned another second and Tracy Brand’s Solution took third.

J/111 surfing downwindDay 3- Epic Breeze for Finale
Wagner’s Skeleton Key improved his J/111 resume by adding the 2018 J/111 North American Championship to his 2017 J/111 World Championship title. With crew John Collins (bow), Nick Gibbens (headsail trimmer), John Hayes (mast), Dave Lyons (spinnaker trimmer), John Pernick (main trimmer), Cory Schillaci (pit) and Seadon Wijsen (tactician), the St. Francis Yacht Club member recorded no scores lower than a sixth in the no-discard, eight-race series. Skeleton Key ended with 18 points, including three bullets. Jim Connelly’s Slush Fund secured the silver position with 36 points, just one ahead of Bradley Faber’s Utah and Rob Ruhlman’s Spaceman Spiff that tied on points at 37 for third and fourth, respectively.

In breeze sometimes sustained over 20 knots, Friday’s race winners were Faber’s Utah, Jeffrey Davis’ Shamrock and the trio of Karl Brummel, Steve Henderson and Mike Mayer on Kashmir. However, race 6 was later abandoned due to an improper action by the Race Committee.

The top five teams were SKELETON KEY first, Connelly’s SLUSH FUND second, Faber’s UTAH third, Ruhlman’s SPACEMAN SPIFF fourth, and Davis’ SHAMROCK fifth.  For more J/111 North American Championship sailing informationAdd to Flipboard Magazine.

By Laurie Niles: In an effort to promote the coverage of live violin performance, Violinist.com each week presents links to reviews of notable concerts and recitals around the world. Benjamin Beilman performed Jennifer Higdon's Violin Concerto with the Berkeley Symphony.
  • San Francisco Chronicle Datebook: "At every juncture, he brought a blend of interpretive subtlety and technical boldness — qualities that reappeared in his encore, a potent account of the Largo from Bach’s C-Major Violin Sonata."
  • San Francisco Classical Voice: "Beilman’s musicality was breathtaking, athletic, and assured, while his demeanor seemed unassuming and humble. "
Benjamin Beilman#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000
Benjamin Beilman.
Leila Josefowicz performed the Stravinsky Violin Concerto with the New York Philharmonic. Julian Rachlin and violist Sarah McElravy performed Penderecki’s Concerto Doppio for Violin, Viola and Orchestra (the "Rachlin Double") and Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante with the Royal Northern Sinfonia.
  • The Northern Echo: "Leading from the violin, Rachlin opened a joyous account (of the Mozart), before being joined by McElravy in a dialogue full of vigour and energy. The achingly beautiful slow movement was eloquently conveyed, with the soloists warmly enveloped by the orchestra."
Arnaud Sussmann performed the Brahms Violin Concerto with the Santa Rosa Symphony.
  • San Francisco Classical Voice: "His tone is gorgeous, and he projects well, soaring high above the orchestra with ease. His many other virtues are self-evident: perfect intonation, ramrod-straight bowing, tremendous dynamic range, and blistering speed."
Ilya Gringolts performed Paganini Concerto No. 1 with the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
  • The West Australian: "Paganini, the 19th-century all-time great, allegedly broke strings to show off his versatility but Gringolts had no such need, his virtuosic style simple, agile and understated. ACO members looked on in frank admiration during the cadenza to the first movement, an elastic and scintillating homage to the composer that drew those whoops and frantic applause."

          San Francisco Man Contracts HIV Despite Regular Adherence To PrEP      Cache   Translate Page      

A 21-year-old Latinx man in San Francisco, California, has contracted HIV despite adhering to a daily PrEP regime.

According to TheBodyPro.com, he is the first known HIV seroconversion with verified adherence to PrEP in the United States,

Medical experts were informed of the news at the annual IDWeek conference, run by the Infectious Diseases Society of America, this past weekend in San Francisco.

Reports show the man began PrEP through a city health clinic in San Francisco in late 2016. At the time, he was confirmed to be HIV negative.

Repeat testing during return visits at the three, six and ten month marks showed he had been consistent in taking the medication and he remained HIV negative. By analyzing samples of his hair, doctors were able to confirm he had adhered to the PrEP regime on a regular basis for the previous six months.

In early 2018, during a followup visit, he tested negative through a rapid test, but a more comprehensive RNA test came back positive. Further testing showed he was indeed HIV positive.

He was immediately placed on HIV medications and his viral load was suppressed where it has remained since treatment began.

Health care experts were able to identify that the man had acquired a particularly resistant strain of HIV usually identified with those who have begun treatment with HIV medications but stopped.

Researchers were able to determine that the man’s primary male partner had been diagnosed with HIV, used medications for a period of time but had stopped. His viral load was found to be very high and matched the 21-year-old’s strain. He has since returned to treatment.

This marks the sixth reported case of HIV infection while using PrEP.

Four cases, two in 2016 in New York and Toronto, and two in 2017 in North Carolina and Australia, are believed to be due to exposure to high viral loads of resistant strains of HIV.

Medical experts believe the fifth previous case, in Amsterdam, was the result of a gay man having “unusually high number” of sexual partners - an average of 56 partners a month - which may have repeatedly exposed him to HIV, according to aidsmap.com.

Even in light of this new report, health care professionals insist PrEP (currently being taken on a regular basis by over 350,000 people around the world) is extremely effective in combating HIV infection.

"We know PrEP is greater than 99% effective," Robert Grant, M.D. of the University of California San Francisco told TheBodyPro.com.

"There are some cases where HIV will break through. We only have a handful of cases now, and next year, we'll probably have a handful more. Fortunately, these cases are caught early, treated, and suppressed quickly. The person goes from taking one pill a day to one pill a day. The biggest difference is stigma."

Efforts to establish safe injection sites in Philadelphia and San Francisco hit some bumps in the road, President Trump calls for "stop and frisk" policing in Chicago, and more.

[image:1 align:right caption:true]Harm Reduction

Pennsylvania Governor Rejects Philadelphia Safe Injection Site Proposal. Even though Philadelphia officials are moving ahead with plans for a safe injection site, having formed a nonprofit last week to oversee the project, Gov. Tom Wolf (D) is not behind the plan. "It's not a workable solution to this problem," he said. "The course that I think we ought to take, and what I'm doing at the state level, is to figure out ways to get people to stop wanting to use those drugs. I would not want to be guilty of spending any public money to give people the sense that this is something that's OK. I just don't think that's a good idea." He and Democratic Attorney General Josh Shapiro worry about conflicting with a 1986 law, the federal "crack house" law that bars the use of a facility "for the purpose of manufacturing, distributing, or using any controlled substance."

San Francisco Mayor Still Weighing Safe Injection Sites, Despite Veto of State Bill. Mayor London Breed (D) is now pondering the city's way forward with a safe injection site after Gov. Jerry Brown (D) last week vetoed a bill that would have put the state of California fully behind the effort. Breed is said to be concerned about threats of possible federal prosecution if the plan moves toward fruition.

Law Enforcement

President Trump Calls for Police "Stop and Frisk" Tactics in Chicago. Speaking to the International Association of Police Chiefs in Orlando Monday, President Trump called on Chicago police to embrace "stop and frisk" policing as a tool to reduce violence in the country's third-largest city. "Stop and frisk" was embraced for years by the New York City police department, but was widely criticized as overwhelmingly aimed at minority populations and ultimately ruled unconstitutional as carried out by the NYPD. "Gotta be properly applied, but stop-and-frisk works," said Trump. The city of Chicago reached an agreement with the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois in 2015 to curb stop-and-frisk procedures after the ACLU threatened to file a lawsuit over the issue. A spokesman for Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) blasted Trump for his "clueless" criticism. "Even someone as clueless as Donald Trump has to know stop-and-frisk is simply not the solution to crime," Matt McGrath said in an emailed statement.

Bangladesh Moving to Impose Death Penalty for as Little as Five Grams of Meth. The cabinet has approved in principle a draft of the Narcotics Control Act of 2018 that introduces the death penalty for anyone producing, smuggling, distributing, or using more than five grams of methamphetamine. The draft also sets life in prison as the mandatory minimum sentence for such offenses. Less than five grams of meth would merit a sentence of up to 15 years, with a mandatory minimum of five years. The new law also would mandate the death penalty for more than 25 grams of heroin or cocaine.

          Alex Spanos, Chargers owner and businessman, dies at 95      Cache   Translate Page      

STOCKTON, Calif. — Alex Spanos, the son of Greek immigrants who used a self-made fortune from construction and real estate to buy the Chargers in 1984, died Tuesday. He was 95.

The Chargers announced Spanos' death. Faye Spanos, his wife, died in August at 92.

After building a nationwide construction empire based in Stockton, his Northern California hometown, Spanos realized a lifelong dream of owning an NFL franchise when he bought controlling interest in the San Diego Chargers from Gene Klein in 1984 for about $50 million. He eventually bought all but 3 percent of the team.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell hailed Spanos as "an American success story, driven by a tireless work ethic inspired by his humble beginnings."

"Alex became one of the country's most successful businessmen, but he never forgot his roots and the call to help others," Goodell added in a statement. "Along with Faye, his beloved wife of nearly 70 years, Alex's philanthropic and civic contributions touched many lives throughout California and around the country. He was a marvelous friend and partner whose impact on the NFL will never be forgotten. We all benefited from Alex's compassion, character and zest for football and life."

Spanos hadn't been in charge of day-to-day management of the Chargers since 1994, when he turned over the responsibilities to Dean Spanos, his oldest son. Dean Spanos decided to move the Chargers from San Diego to Los Angeles last year.

The team announced in 2008 that Alex Spanos was suffering from dementia, and he eventually stopped attending games.

"Laura and I send our condolences to the Spanos family on the death of their beloved patriarch, Alex Spanos," former President George W. Bush said in a statement. "Alex was one of a kind. ... He was a wonderful citizen and friend, and the Bush family will miss him."

Born in Stockton on Sept. 28, 1923, Spanos took an unlikely road to NFL ownership. After working in his father's bakery and serving in the Air Force during World War II, Spanos borrowed $800 from a banker to buy a truck from which he sold sandwiches to migrant farm workers in the San Joaquin Valley. He began investing in real estate and started a construction company that mostly built apartment buildings, eventually expanding its footprint across the Sunbelt and Midwest.

Spanos and his wife were generous philanthropists, giving to many causes related to hospitals, universities and youth programs. He gave extensively to the University of the Pacific, his alma mater in Stockton, where the Alex G. Spanos Center houses the Tigers' basketball and volleyball teams.

He was an avid golfer and counted among his friends Bob Hope, Gerald Ford and many prominent politicians. Hope sometimes attended Chargers home games, sitting in Spanos' box.

"Alex Spanos lived the American Dream," former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said on Twitter. "His incredible story should inspire each and every one of us. As a son of immigrants, he rose from working in his father's bakery to become a titan of real estate and business. But more importantly, he used his money and platform to give back to the world. He was a dear friend and I'll miss him dearly."

During his third season of Chargers ownership, Spanos fired legendary coach Don Coryell after the Chargers started 1-7 in 1986. It took nine seasons for the Chargers to make their first playoff appearance under Spanos' ownership, in 1992.

After then-general manager Bobby Beathard nearly resigned following the 1993 season due to a feud over signing bonuses for free agents, Alex Spanos put Dean in charge of day-to-day operations of the team. With Beathard remaining, the Chargers made their only Super Bowl appearance, a 49-26 loss to San Francisco in January 1995.

It was Alex Spanos who first raised the topic of a new stadium in 2000, just three years after the city expanded Qualcomm by 10,000 seats for the Chargers, touting it as being Super Bowl-quality. The stadium hosted Super Bowls in 1998 and 2003, but the city fell behind on maintenance and it fell out of the Super Bowl rotation.

Alex Spanos wasn't held in warm regard by many San Diego fans and was booed during a halftime ceremony to retire Hall of Famer Dan Fouts' No. 14 in 1988. After that, Alex Spanos didn't participate in similar ceremonies.

The Chargers last year left San Diego, their home of 56 years, and moved north after years of fruitless attempts to secure funding for a new arena to replace aging Qualcomm Stadium. The Chargers are currently in the midst of their second of three seasons playing at StubHub Center in suburban Carson, but they will share a multibillion dollar stadium complex in Inglewood with the Los Angeles Rams upon its completion in 2020.

Spanos is survived by four children, 15 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

La Iglesia Cubana desde los primeros años con contadas excepciones como los fallecidos sacerdotes John M Kniff OSA, (recordemos fue el primero en asistir a las víctimas de la Coubre, Párroco de la Iglesia Santo Cristo del Buen Viaje en La Habana Vieja, murió en Miami en el 1994 ), Monseñor Maurice Estiu Obispo de Holguín, Padre Conrado, el Arzobispo Ciro de Pinar del Río, P. Miguel Ángel Loredo ex preso político, los Padres Castor José Álvarez de Devesa, Cura del Modelo, Camagüey; José Conrado Rodríguez Alegre, Párroco de San Francisco de Paula, Trinidad, Cienfuegos; y Roque Nelvis Morales Fonseca, Párroco de Cueto, Holguín; son los firmantes del texto que también criticó los problemas para acceder a los medicamentos y a un transporte público en condiciones."Los cubanos necesitan pensar y hablar sin hipocresía" carta dirigida al dictador Raúl Kastro”
Vemos como por boca del Obispo de Camagüey Monseñor Wilfredo Pino Estévez, lo principal  que le preocupa de la ilegal Constitución Cubana es, que se incluyan las uniones de hecho como matrimonio, a pesar de que hace tímidas referencias a la falta de libertad y no que hay un partido único, que el socialismo es la base del “sistema de gobierno”, y nos culpa al Exilio Histórico de fomentar divisiones en el Pueblo Cubano, expresiones para no “molestar a la dictadura”.
Mientras la Iglesia no tome el papel que le corresponde como institución, el Mundo presione a la dictadura seguirán estas violaciones en Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragüa, Korea del Norte, China, y otros países donde se violan sistemáticamente la libertad de expresión, religión, viajar sin cortapisas.

          The spreading hotel strike lands in Boston      Cache   Translate Page      

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

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

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

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

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

Striking hotel workers walk the picket line in Boston

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          7 Glimpses Into The Social Decay That Is Voraciously Eating Away At The Fabric Of America      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Michael Snyder via The American Dream blog,

Everyone agrees that America is not the same place that it once was. 

Our society is undergoing a fundamental transformation that is absolutely breathtaking, and some of the changes have been positive.  But many would argue that most of the changes have been negative, and the truth is that we can see evidence of this all around us.  Wikipedia defines social decay as “the tendency for society to decline or disintegrate over time, perhaps due to the lapse or breakdown of traditional social support systems.” 

As a society, we are more disconnected from one another than we have ever been before, and perhaps this is one of the big reasons why so much anger and hatred are growing all around usAt this point, a large portion of the population doesn’t even seem to possess a basic level of empathy and compassion for their fellow citizens, and that has frightening implications for the future of our nation.

Because we are so disconnected from one another, it is very easy for each of us to get intensely focused on the details of our own daily lives.

But when we step back and take a broader view of things, the extent to which our society has deteriorated is quite stunning.

Today, I would like to share with you 7 glimpses into the social decay that is voraciously eating away at the fabric of our country…

#1 Long Island – Gang activity is spreading like wildfire all over America.  On Long Island, some homeowners in the Hamptons are actually installing “panic rooms” in their homes as MS-13 continues to move east on Long Island

Wealthy Hamptons homeowners are securing their homes by installing luxury panic rooms to protect themselves from the dangerous MS-13 gang that has plagued Suffolk County.

Billionaire Gristedes supermarket mogul, John Catsimatidis, told the New York Post ‘I sleep with a gun underneath my pillow: a Walther PPK/S, the same one James Bond carried.’

‘[My wife] Margo prefers a shotgun. Although, once, she thought she heard something, got the shotgun out and shot through the door,’ he added.

#2 South Fulton County, Georgia – Law enforcement authorities recently discovered “more than 10 decapitated goats” in and around the Chattahoochee River.  Needless to say, this completely shocked the residents of South Fulton County

Officials say they found more than 10 decapitated goatsin and around the Chattahoochee River.

Channel 2’s Tom Jones was in South Fulton County, where the Chattahoochee Riverkeeper found the headless animals floating down the river near the Martin Luther King Jr. Drive bridge.

#3 Baltimore, Maryland – The opioid crisis in America has never been worse than it is right now.  As a result, many babies are addicted to the drugs the moment that they are born.  In the city of Baltimore, approximately one out of every four babies is born as an opioid addict…

Every 15 minutes, a baby is born dependent on opioids. In Baltimore, doctors at Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital say babies born with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome — a set of conditions caused by withdrawal from exposure to drugs — now account for 25% of the hospital’s admissions.

#4 Birmingham, Alabama – Nowhere is social decay more evident than among our young people.  Not too long ago, a wild brawl in Birmingham involving approximately 30 teens made national headlines

One of the gang appears to be brandishing a machete as he strikes the victim.

West Midlands Police confirmed three people sustained stab injuries and were taken to hospital.

Witnesses claimed there were “about 30” youngsters “aged around 16” involved in the incident.

#5 Auburn, Washington – Do you remember what I said earlier about many Americans lacking basic empathy and compassion?  Well, an incident that just happened in Auburn, Washington is a perfect example of that.  It all started when a convenience store clerk confronted a pair of potential thieves

The horrific incident occurred in Auburn, Washington Saturday, when two teenagers and an adult male got into an argument with a Shell station attendant who said the pair owed money for two pepperoni sticks that had arrogantly helped themselves to. After walking around the counter and confronting the group, clerk Zarif Kelada suddenly staggered forward and collided with a water bottle stand before collapsing to the ground.

Instead of helping the clerk, the two boys decided that it was a great opportunity to rob the store.  As one of the boys was leaving, he even ripped a dollar bill out of the dying clerk’s hand

Instead of physically helping the clerk, or at the very least calling 911, the two boys seize their opportunity and pounced on the unmanned checkout. The man chose not to participate in the robbery, but also failed to signal for help – he simply strolled out the door, leaving Zarif dying on the ground. After stealing cigarettes and over $150 from the register, one of the boys committed a final act of defiance, ripping a dollar bill out of Kelada’s hand as he lay on the ground, struggling for air.

You can see video of this robbery right here.  If this is what the future of America looks like, we are all in really big trouble.

#6 Portland, Oregon – Just recently, Antifa took over the streets of downtown Portland and actually started directing traffic.  Portland police monitored them the entire time, but they refused to intervene.  When one extremely frightened elderly man refused to follow Antifa’s directions, they attacked his vehicle, causing $3,000 in damage

Video captured by Brandon Farley shows the driver inching forward, getting clear and driving away quickly. He stopped less than a block away, got out, looked at the damage to his car quickly, then got back in as protesters arrived and again began hitting his car.

The driver, who spoke with KOIN 6 News but did not want to go on-camera, said he got out of his car earlier and asked protesters to move. But, he said, they grabbed him. He got back into the car, which is when they began beating on his car and smashed his driver’s side window.

The person in front of the car was trying to lift up the front end as the driver was trying to get out of the area.

The driver said there is $3000 damage to his car. He called the police to file a report after he left the area, which police confirmed.

#7 San Francisco, California – One of the wealthiest cities in America has also become a cesspool of crime, drugs and human feces.  An Inside Edition news crew went down to one of the worst parts of San Francisco to report on the crime wave, but while they did that their own vehicle was broken into and “thousands of dollars worth of equipment” was stolen

While the crew was interviewing the man captured on camera in the initial theft, their actual crew car was broken into via the “smash and grab” method, leaving “thousands of dollars worth of equipment” stolen.

According to the San Francisco Chroniclemore than 31,000 people reported “smash and grab” robberiesin the city in 2017 alone.

If 31,000 people reported “smash and grab” robberies in San Francisco last year, how many more went unreported to the police?

What in the world is happening to us?  America was once “the shining city on a hill” that the rest of the world admired, but now the only example we are is a bad one.

It doesn’t have to be this way, but we have got to be willing to go back to the values and the principles that made our country so great in the first place.

If we continue down the path that we are currently on, how do we possibly expect to have any sort of a positive future as a nation?

Change is desperately needed, but unfortunately real change does not appear to be anywhere on the horizon at this point…
