          Oakland Raiders 2018/19 Week 08      Cache   Translate Page      


An dieser Stelle berichte ich über die Spiele meines favorisierten Football-Team, den OAKLAND RAIDERS  sowie alle restlichen Ergebnisse der NFL...



Oakland Raiders - Indianapolis Colts 28:42

Eigentlich sollte eine freie Woche einem Team helfen, um verletzungsfreier und optimierter in die nächsten Spiele zu gehen; bei den Oakland Raiders kamen jedoch nur Hiobsbotschaften: Running Back Marshawn Lynch landete auf der Verletztenliste und Wide Receiver Amari Cooper wurde zu den Dallas Cowboys abgegeben. Man kann sagen, dass damit weitere Waffen des Angriffs genommen wurden. So brauchten die Raiders auch das gesamte erste Quarter, ehe sie auf Trab kamen. Bis dahin hatten allerdings die Gäste schon zehn Punkte geholt. Ohne große Gegenwehr marschierte Quarterback Andrew Luck mit seinem Angriff über das Feld und fand abschließend Tight End Mo Alie-Cox über 26 Yard zum Touchdown. Anschließend  legten sie noch ein Field Goal von Kicker Adam Vinatieri aus derselben Entfernung nach. Ein toller Pass von Quarterback Derek Carr über 31 Yard auf Wide Receiver Seth Roberts brachte im zweiten Quarter die ersten Punkte für Oakland. Nun schien der Spielmacher beflügelt und fand im nächsten Drive Tight End Jared Cook über 25 Yard zur 14:10 Führung. Knapp vor der Pause wurde es dann Liga-Historisch: Vinatieri traf ein Field Goal aus 25 Yard und war nun mit 2.547 der Rekordhalter für erzielte Punkte. Im dritten Quarter konnten die Raiders den Aufwind nutzten und marschierten über das Feld. Carr selber überbrückte mit einem Sprung den letzten Yard zu seinem ersten Touchdown und dem 21:13. Nun zeigten die Colts aber die Schwächen der Raiders auf - sie ließen immer wieder 'Big Plays' zu und so fand Luck schließlich Tight End Eric Ebron über 20 Yard und einem Zwei-Punkte-Erhöhung zum Ausgleich. Aber auch Carr kam schnell über das Spielfeld und fand den erst in de Woche engagierten Wide Receiver Brandon LaFell über sechs Yard zum 28:21. Das vierte Quarter sollte aber dann die Entscheidung bringen. Erstmal glichen die Colts aus, als Running Back Marlon Mack die letzten drei Yard überbrückte. Dann hielt die Abwehr die Gäste und Luck jagte seine Mannen erneut zum Touchdown, als er schließlich Tight End Jack Doyle über 10 Yard bediente. Oakland wollte nun den Ausgleich zurück holen, doch bei einem Versuch zu mehr Raumgewinn verlor Running Back Doug Martin den Ball, den Indianapolis in aussichtsreicher Position eroberte. Ruckzuck hatte Mack mit nur noch einem zu überbrückenden Yard die Führung aus 42:28 ausgebaut. Oakland kam zu keinen weiteren Punkten mehr und muss einsehen, dass die Saison mit nun 1-6 gelaufen zu sein scheint. Die Lichtpunkte sind nämlich viel zu wenig!


Tight End Jared Cook punktete für die Raiders...

A reminder of how broken and dysfunctional America’s voting systems are.

It did not take long on Election Day to have reports of problems with voting in several states. 

These aren’t necessarily the result of intentional voter suppression right then and there at the local level—but they are a reminder of how broken and dysfunctional America’s voting systems are, and how badly we need nationwide reform that will improve voting access and security. We shouldn’t be relying on a few volunteers per precinct, or having people turned away because no one can find the voting machines that turn out to be locked away in a closet.

          Brawlhalla: Free-to-play-Kampfspiel für Switch und Xbox One verfügbar; Rayman-Update startklar      Cache   Translate Page      
Das Free-to-play-Kampfspiel Brawlhalla, das auf dem PC und der PlayStation 4 mehr als 15 Millionen Spieler aufweist, ist nun auch für Switch und Xbox One verfügbar. Ein Update sorgt außerdem dafür, dass Rayman auf allen verfügbaren Plattformen die bunte Helden-Riege erweitert und der Kick-Box-Modus eingeführt wird.
 
"Rayman bringt seine körperlosen Kung-Fu-Kombinationen in die Welt von Brawlhalla und tritt damit allen Kriegern entgegen, die von Odin und seinen Walküren nach Walhalla gebracht wurden. Raymans einzigartige Waffen sind seine Fäuste. Mit den Boxhandschuhen aus Rayman Legends verprügelt er seine Gegner, mittels seiner Axt surft er durch die Arenen und mäht dabei seine Feinde nieder. Wenn Rayman seine Spezialmanöver verwendet, kann er den Lums in einer Kombo-Sieg-Bewegung folgen, während seine Helikopterhaare im Wind surren. Das Update enthält auch Skins für Rayman und alle seine Freunde: Rayman wird mit den drei Skins von Sir Rayelot, Raymesis und Raydvar starten (Rayman getarnt als Bodvar, Brawlhalla's Wikingerheld); Cowgirl Legend Cassidy wird einen epischen Globox Skin haben und Valkyrie Legend Brynn wird einen epischen Barbara Skin haben."
 
"Der Kick-Box-Modus ist ein neuer Modus, der allen Brawlhalla-Spielern zur Verfügung steht. In diesem Spielmodus kämpfen die Legenden darum, einen Fußball zu schlagen, zu treten und in das gegnerische Tor zu schießen, während sie ihr eigenes Tor verteidigen. In diesem Modus, der auf dem Kick-Box-Minispiel von Rayman Legends basiert, kann es schnell verrückt werden, denn je häufiger der Ball getroffen wird, desto weiter und schneller bewegt er sich."

Weiter zum Video

Heute ist außerdem ein dreiwöchiges Rayman-Event gestartet worden:
  • "Der Kick-Box-Modus ersetzt die Schlägerei der Woche: Die Spieler können sich in die Warteschlange für den Kick-Box-Modus stellen sowie mit Freunden lokal oder online spielen. Der Standardmodus ist 2v2, aber im Couchmodus und in benutzerdefinierten Lobbys können Spieler Kick-Box Matches mit zwei bis acht Spielern erstellen.
  • Neue Teamfoto-Pose: In dieser allerersten Team-Pose können Spieler in der Nähe gemeinsam posieren. Nur ein Spieler muss die Pose haben, damit andere mitmachen können, und selbst Gegner können am Spaß teilnehmen!
  • Neuer KO-Effekt: Mittelalterlicher Drache
  • Neues Podium: Zauberhafter Baum
  • Neuer Begleiter: Lum King
  • UI-Übernahme
  • Zusätzlich 250 Gold zum täglichen Anmeldebonus jedes Spielers
  • Gegenstände von diesem bleiben auch nach Ende des Events in Mallhalla verfügbar"
 
"Brawlhalla wurde von Blue Mammoth entwickelt und ist ein Free-to-Play Plattform-Kampfspiel. Es führt die Spieler in einen Kampf um Ruhm und Ehre in den Hallen von Walhalla. Die Spieler können aus über 40 einzigartigen Charakteren wählen und im Einzel- oder Koop-Modus online und lokal gegen andere antreten. Die dritte jährliche Brawlhalla Weltmeisterschaft findet vom 16. bis 18. November im Rahmen der DreamHack Atlanta statt."

          Does Jayson Tatum need a shot selection intervention?      Cache   Translate Page      

Let me start by saying the Boston Celtics' recent offensive woes are not the fault of Jayson Tatum.


Or rather, not Jayson by himself, but in a lot of ways, the sophomore wing has exemplified the Celtics problem by becoming part of a team of late-career Kobe Bryants, settling for jumpers and avoiding the paint, resulting in lost games and a general dissatisfaction with the team as a whole.

But that is not what I am here to write about, mostly because I have already written about it, but also because it seems increasingly likely that the young player has picked up some bad habits over the summer with a very attributable source, and it's not just Celtics fans picking up on this possibility.

In case I haven't tipped you off with my ever-so-subtle manner of broaching the topic, there's a growing consensus around the league that Tatum has picked up more than Kobe's killer instinct after working out with the Hall of Fame nemesis of the green and white, launching an alarming ten percent more mid-range jump shots than last season while also shooting 15 percent fewer attempts near the cup.

More than half his shots have been pull-up jumpers, too, and while some of those have been open treys, a lot have not, and as much as Jayson may be one of the better offensive options on Boston's roster, he's showing some really concerning tendencies with how he's using that talent.

While he may be fulfilling the wish some of us had last season by playing more aggressively and shooting more than he did in his rookie season, this isn't exactly what we were asking for, and mixed in with everyone else's version of the same problem, is exactly the wrong direction to be taking, both individually for Tatum, and for the team overall.

I have confidence the team will turn things around (it's important to remember this is arguably the toughest stretch of one of the toughest schedules in the league) with games against the Charlotte Hornets, New York Knicks, Atlanta Hawks, Dallas Mavericks, and Cleveland Cavaliers late in November, but they need to build good habits on this road trip to avoid a rough start becoming a disappointing season.

And cutting out these Kobe-esque jumpers might just be a good place to start.

I thought they knew Lin was going to go for more money and a bigger role. Plus that had at least 5 free agents. Lin, Lee, Big Al, Batum, Williams. They figured go with Batum because he already had that big role and Williams for defense and as a stretch 4. Big Al was near the end of his time in Charlotte and Lee wasn't as big a player as the others. Lin was big, but he was too good for the role Charlotte had for him. Their decision made basketball sense.

The Bullets recruit was briefly detained after landing in Brisbane on Thursday with his dog, Kobe.

But Kobe was kept in quarantine and was sent home Friday, Australia's agriculture department said.
          China gave foreign countries and journalists seminars on how to restrict online speech and unflattering news reports      Cache   Translate Page      

xi jinpingReuters/Jason Lee

  • China has been hosting seminars for foreign countries and journalists on how to clamp down on online speech and writing positive news about China's economic policies, Freedom House reported.
  • They include courses on President Xi Jinping's views on patriotism and tours of companies that monitor negative public opinion in the country.
  • Many of them catered to countries that are part of China's Belt and Road Initiative, a massive infrastructure project that aims to link 70 countries around the world.
  • Those courses appeared to work on some of the countries, who issued laws clamping down on online speech after attending the seminars.
  • China has a long record of muzzling free speech in the country.
  • It wields a lot of soft power over its economic allies, largely because of its financial investments around the world.

China has been holding seminars for foreign countries and journalists on how to restrict online speech and write positive news about it, according to a Freedom House report published this week.

The programs — which appear tailored to specific countries and regions — included courses like "socialist journalism with Chinese characteristics" and a class on "the Chinese Dream," Freedom House said.

Those two slogans were popularized under President Xi Jinping, and lay out his view of patriotism and innovation as long as it does not defy the Chinese Communist Party.

The programs appeared to be marketed to countries involved in China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), a massive infrastructure project launched in 2013 that aims to link China to more than 70 countries across Asia, Europe, and Africa.

It is one of President Xi Jinping's pet projects, and Beijing has invested between $1 trillion and $8 trillion in those projects since 2013, according to the Center for Strategic and International StudiesMultiple BRI partners have racked up billions of dollars in debt because they couldn't afford to repay China's loans on infrastructure projects.

Here are some of the seminars China hosted over the past year, according to Freedom House.

  • November 2017: A two-week "Seminar on Cyberspace Management for Officials of Countries along the Belt and Road Initiative," where officials toured a company — unnamed in in the report — that monitored, using big data, negative public opinion, and created a "positive energy public-opinion guidance system."
  • May 2018: Prominent journalists and media officials from the Philippines visited China for two weeks to learn about "new media development." What this means exactly is not clear.
  • A similar conference for media staff in Thailand taught attendees about the "Chinese Dream" and how media outlets can report domestic and international affairs, including China's economic development. The date of this conference is not clear.
  • Representatives from Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates also attended a three-week "Seminar for Senior Media Staff in Arab Countries" at an unspecified date.

Details about what actually happens during those seminars are scant. But pictures published by the Chinese ministry of commerce of a seminar on the "promotion of international cooperation," held last August for 43 officials from BRI countries, showed delegates attending a lecture by Chinese officials and receiving a "graduation certificate" at the end.

China flexes its soft power

Those seminars appeared to work on the foreign countries.

After Vietnamese officials attended China's seminar on media management in April 2017, it introduced a cybersecurity law that ordered global tech companies — such as Google and Facebook — to store personal data of users in Vietnam in the country.

Uganda and Tanzania also introduced similar laws clamping down on online media dissemination after their officials attended China's seminars over the past year, Freedom House said.

It echoed existing cybersecurity laws in China, which order tech companies to store personal and financial data collected in the country within its borders.

Chinese authorities have previously demanded domestic tech companies to hand over user data and the contents of private conversations.

Earlier this year, the Ministry of Public Security announced that law-enforcement officers could obtain and use private conversations on popular messaging app WeChat in legal proceedings.

Beijing has repeatedly proven the strength of its soft power, much of which stems from its immense economic power around the world.

Taiwan also claims that China uses economic partnerships to pressure countries to cut off diplomatic ties with it. Beijing insists that Taiwan is part of China, while Taipei recognizes itself as an independent nation.

Australia's former foreign minister, Julie Bishop, also revealed earlier this week that Australia did not strike a trade deal with Taiwan because her counterpart Wang Yi simply told her not to. China is Australia's largest trading partner, top export market, and biggest import source.

China also clamps down on online speech and thought within the country. Law-enforcement authorities have muzzled free speech in the past by censoring posts and forcefully disappearing people seen to speak out against the regime.

It also ranks citizens' behavior on a social credit system, which doles out punishments and rewards depending on the individual's score.

Long queues and malfunctioning machines marred the first hours of voting in some precincts across the US. Some of the biggest problems today were in Georgia, a state with a hotly contested gubernatorial election. Voters reported waiting up to three hours to vote. At a polling place in Snellville, Georgia, more than 100 people took turns sitting in children’s chairs and on the floor as they waited for hours. Voter Ontaria Woods said about two dozen people who had come to vote left because of the queues. At a poll site in Atlanta, voters waited in the rain in long lines that stretched around the building. Hannah Ackermann said officials at the polling site offered various explanations for the delay, including blaming workers who did not show up and overloaded machines. Democrat Stacey Abrams will be the first black female US state governor if she is elected in Georgia in a tight race with Brian Kemp who is the Republican candidate. President Donald Trump and vice-president Mike Pence campaigned for Mr Kemp while former president Barack Obama and talk show host Oprah Winfrey were among those to join Ms Adams on the campaign trail. The state has been strongly Republican in recent decades but is seen to now be a Democratic target. Former president Jimmy Carter, who was governor of Georgia before his stint in the White House, has also backed Ms Abrams.

About Cody Matlock
At just 22, Cody Matlock has already been paying his dues on the Atlanta blues scene for nearly a decade. A chance encounter with Jonny Lang when he was 12 took him from a kid with a passion for guitar and put him on the path to being a professional musician. A year later his dad was carting him around to local blues jams. The novelty of a 13 year old kid joining his elders on stage in smoky bars was soon replaced by a real appreciation for Cody's hard work, dedication, and talent. Since then, Cody has grown into a killer guitarist with a voice and stage presence that are intensely captivating. Increasingly a fixture at some of Atlanta's most iconic blues halls, Cody can often be seen at Northside Tavern, Fat Matt's, Blind Willie's and Darwin's, lighting up the stage with a range of songs from graveyard blues classics to 90s hits to soulful originals. No matter the genre, era, or style, Cody infuses every song with a measure of soul, calling on influences like James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Al Green, and Prince. When he's not performing, he's hard at work honing all aspects of his craft and working on his forthcoming first album.

PRESS RELEASE:

LIFETIME HAS GREENLIT TWO NEW ORIGINAL MOVIES
BASED ON BELOVED NOVELS

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE: ATLANTA FEATURES
TIFFANY HINES, JUAN ANTONIO,
JACKÉE HARRY, REGINALD VELJOHNSON,
KESHIA KNIGHT PULLIAM AND KELLEE STEWART

VERY VALENTINE STARS KELEN COLEMAN
AND JACQUELINE BISSET
BASED ON ADRIANA TRIGANI’S BEST-SELLING BOOK

November 5, 2019 – Lifetime is set to adapt a pair of beloved book titles for two new original movies, Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta, featuring an all-African American cast for a modern take of the Jane Austen classic and New York Time’s best-selling author Adriana Trigiani’s Very Valentine starring Kelen Coleman and Jacqueline Bisset, from Sony Pictures Television. Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta and Very Valentine join Lifetime’s growing roster of movies developed from popular novels including a trilogy of films from Jane Green and five movies based on VC Andrew’s Casteel series set to debut in 2019 on Lifetime.



In a contemporary adaptation of the Jane Austen classic, Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta follows Reverend Bennet (Reginald VelJohnson, Family Matters), a pastor of a prominent southern Baptist church and his wife Mrs. Bennet (Jackée Harry, Sister, Sister), who is the author of a self-help book on how to find the perfect husband. Needless to say, Mrs. Bennet is less than thrilled that all five of their daughters, Lizzie (Tiffany Hines, Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart), Jane (Raney Branch, Being Mary Jane), Mary (Brittney Level, The Purge), Lydia (Reginae Carter, Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta) and Kitty (Alexia Bailey), are still single. When the very eligible Will Darcy (Juan Antonio, Empire) arrives in town, Mrs. Bennet sets her sights on the handsome bachelor for daughter Lizzie, leading to a modern-day, comedic take on themes familiar to fans of the novel.

Kellee Stewart (Love by the 10th Date) portrays Lizzie’s best friend Charlotte, Victoria Rowell (The Young and the Restless) stars as Will’s aunt Catherine and Keshia Knight Pulliam (Jingle Belle) plays snarky socialite Caroline who loathes the idea of Darcy and Lizzie’s union.

Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta is produced by Big Dreams Entertainment and Swirl Films. Executive producers are Leslie Greif, Naomi Despres (Kill the Messenger) and Tracy McMillan (Satisfaction). Eric Tomosunas and Alex Kerr produce while Rhonda Baraka (Pastor Brown) directs from a script written by Tracy McMillan.



Based on a novel by best-selling author Adriana Trigiani, Very Valentine tells the story of the Angelini Shoe Company, one of the last family-owned businesses in Greenwich Village that has been making exquisite wedding shoes since 1903, but now teeters on the brink of financial collapse. To save the family business from ruin, Valentine Roncalli (Kelen Coleman, Big Little Lies, The Newsroom) - apprentice to and granddaughter of master artisan Teodora Angelini (Jacqueline Bisset, Nip/Tuck) - must bring the family's old-world craftsmanship into the 21st century. Juggling unpredictable love lives, duty to their family, and a design challenge presented by a prestigious department store, Valentine and Teodora are on a quest to build a pair of glorious shoes sure to beat their rivals. Also, in the course of discovering her true artistic voice, Valentine discovers true love as she turns her life and the business upside down in ways she never expected.

Based on the novel of the same name and part of the ‘Valentine Trilogy’ Book Series by New York Times best-selling author Adriana Trigiani, Very Valentine is produced in Bulgaria by Judith Verno and Sony Pictures Television. Larry Sanitsky serves as executive producer. Menhaj Huda (Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance) directs from a script written by Adriana Trigiani.

          El Chapo trial expected to last 4 months      Cache   Translate Page      
So absurd.

No trial should last that long.

It's not fair to the jurors.

If the prosecutors can't prove that case in 2-3 weeks, then something is wrong.

Here's Reuters with the background:
U.S. prosecutors say that as the head of the Sinaloa Cartel since 2003, Guzman directed the movement of multi-ton shipments of drugs including heroin, cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamine across borders and into the United States. If convicted, Guzman faces life in prison.

According to court filings, prosecution witnesses will include former Sinaloa Cartel members and others involved in the drug trade who are now cooperating with the U.S. government. Prosecutors have so far avoided naming the witnesses, saying that doing so would put them in danger. Some are expected to testify under aliases.

Although the charges in the case all relate to drug trafficking, prosecutors are also expected to introduce evidence that Guzman was involved in multiple murder plots in the course of his career, including in wars with rival cartels.

Guzman’s lawyers have so far given few hints about their planned defense. Eduardo Balarezo, one of the lawyers, said in a court filing that he will seek to prove that Guzman was merely a “lieutenant,” acting at the direction of others.

For a local case in the news, the WSJ covers the Andres Arias extradition appeal here. (Disclosure: I am handling that appeal with Professor Ricardo Bascuas). The title of the piece is: Will the U.S. Extradite an Innocent Man?
If Secretary of State Mike Pompeo doesn’t get involved, an innocent man with young children could end up serving a 17-year sentence in a Colombian prison for a crime he didn’t commit.

Forget that murderers in Colombia don’t get 17 years. Forget too that the Arias criminal case was heard only by a politicized Colombian Supreme Court with no chance for appeal—a violation of international human-rights law.

The crux of this matter rests on whether Washington has an extradition treaty with Bogotá. The countries signed one in 1979 but, as the Colombian Supreme Court has said, Colombia never ratified it.

President Santos refused to extradite multiple suspects wanted by the U.S., citing the lack of a treaty. One was Venezuelan drug kingpin Walid Makled, who Colombia captured in 2011 but sent to Venezuela where his secrets would be kept. Mr. Santos said he had no choice but “to comply with the Constitution and with the laws,” adding “we have an extradition agreement with Venezuela, not with the United States.”

Former Colombian President Álvaro Uribe also has stated, in a sworn affidavit presented in court, that there’s no treaty. Colombia uses domestic law to send suspects to the U.S.

In a motion for a stay of extradition pending appeal filed Tuesday in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta, Mr. Arias’s lawyers argued the point again. “The legality of the order sought to be stayed depends on whether a Treaty that Colombia insists it never ratified and never observes is in force. The Treaty itself states” in article 21(1) “that it is ‘subject to ratification.’ ”

First TriCinch Coil Tricuspid Repair Systems Implanted in U.S.

November 6, 2018 — 4Tech Inc. initiated its U.S. Early Feasibility Study of the TriCinich Coil System following U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, with the first two implantations at Piedmont Heart Hospital in Atlanta. The implantations were conducted by  Christopher Meduri, M.D., Vivek Rajagopal, M.D., and Mani Vannan, M.D. The study will evaluate the TriCinch Coil System in 15 patients across seven centers in the U.S.

“We are pleased to be the first center in the U.S. to implant the TriCinch Coil System,” said Meduri. “Both procedures went smoothly, and the device was easy to implant. Having a technology like the TriCinch Coil System in our structural heart toolkit allows us to treat a wide range of patients suffering from tricuspid regurgitation, who are at high risk for open heart surgery, in a safe and simple manner.”

The 4Tech TriCinch Coil System is a percutaneous direct annuloplasty device designed to reduce tricuspid regurgitation by means of tricuspid valve (TV) remodeling via a nitinol coil anchor that is tensioned by a nitinol stent in the inferior vena cava (IVC).

The device is being evaluated worldwide with a CE-Trial that has enrollment in both Australia and Europe.

Tricuspid regurgitation is a common condition that is age-related and difficult-to-manage, in which blood “backflows” into the right atrium. Today’s standard of care for TR is medical management. Surgical intervention is high-risk, with an in-hospital mortality for isolated TR as high as 37 percent1. Patients with TR and related complications result in substantial healthcare spending due to frequent rehospitalizations. Furthermore, TR leads to chronic renal failure and the need for end-stage dialysis. The combination of these negative outcomes results in a significant unmet need for a minimally invasive solution for TR.

Exit Kurt Taylor Brian November 6th, 2018 at 7:15 PM
[Patrick Barron]

A third transfer, this one more understandable:

ANN ARBOR -- The Michigan football team will be down one running back for the remainder of the season.

Reserve back Kurt Taylor recently decided to leave the program and pursue a transfer, team spokesman Dave Ablauf confirmed to MLive on Tuesday.

Taylor had fallen behind at least Christian Turner in the class after him—never a good sign—and seen Tru Wilson suck up all the designated pass blocker snaps. That latter was Taylor's most promising path to the field and Wilson would have likely blocked him for another two years.

Taylor's departure leaves Michigan with 19 currently open slots in their 2019 recruiting class, a number certain to grow by a significant number. Near as I can figure there are ~8 players likely to head for the NFL draft early or graduate and be offered a firm handshake. That would put Michigan at 27, and there will probably be another few playing time transfers and/or injury retirements. Michigan could accommodate a class of 28-30; they've got 24 commits right now.

This is a last-minute filing, but don’t write them off: They’re being represented by some big guns.

The voters can count on attorneys from Protect Democracy, former United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia Michael J. Moore, and former Department of Justice voting rights attorney Bryan L. Sells. 

Their complaint points to Kemp’s actions while occupying the dual roles of secretary of state and candidate. He’s committed nothing short of an abuse of office.

Acting as chief election administration official in an election in which one is running for office poses a risk of bias under the best of  circumstances. But Defendant Kemp’s efforts to use the authority of his office to advance his campaign have been extreme.

It’s that conduct, the narrowness of the race between Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams, and, presumably, the extreme problems Kemp is responsible for allowing to warp Election Day that sparked this suit. Reminder: They filed this on Election Day.

In light of Defendant Kemp’s recent conduct, Plaintiffs have a strong, well-founded, and reasonable belief that Kemp will not be a fair judge of the outcome of the elections and will exercise his official duties in a biased manner that denies them the right to cast an effective vote.

The complaint’s factual section contains some devastating characterizations as well as inarguable facts that are no better for Kemp.

Defendant Kemp has not only failed to follow the model of his predecessors who have recused themselves; instead he has sought to exercise the official powers and duties of his office in a biased manner to achieve maximum personal and partisan advantage, while neglecting his core responsibility to ensure a secure election. 

The plaintiffs aren’t just voicing their own opinions here: a former two-term Georgia secretary of state, Cathy Cox, supports their points.


          Unions provide a major GOTV push in key races across the country      Cache   Translate Page      

There’s a lot on the line for working people in this election, and a lot on the line for the union movement—especially its immigrant members, its women, its LGBT members, and so many others who the Trump administration and Republicans more generally are attacking as workers and in their lives outside work. And the union movement has campaigned accordingly, working hard and exploring innovative tactics to get out the vote.

The Culinary Workers Union in Las Vegas has registered more than 10,000 voters this cycle in the crucial state of Nevada, and helped 650 immigrants become citizens. It’s following that up with a major GOTV push among members and in neighborhoods.

Working America, the community affiliate of the AFL-CIO, has had 235,000 conversations with voters across 12 states—most notably nearly 42,000 conversations in Ohio, 41,000 in Minnesota, and around 35,000 in Pennsylvania and Michigan. The organization engaged in heavy testing of its results and found that its in-person work adds eight votes out of every 100 conversations.

AFSCME’s I AM 2018 campaign has sought to engage young men of color in 15 cities including Atlanta, Miami, Cleveland, San Antonio, Milwaukee, Detroit, Las Vegas, and more, and has seen major increases in commitments to vote.

Communications Workers of America has run boot camps to train union members to become organizers and activists, and has run a campaign focusing on southern states—including Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, and Tennessee—building on past successes like the work the union did in 2016 to elect Roy Cooper governor of North Carolina, this time with an eye to shrinking the Republican majority in the state legislature and electing more Democrats to Congress. 

And after a spring that saw a wave of teacher uprisings, nearly 1,800 educators are on the ballot nationwide. Stay tuned to find out how their races turn out.

Those are just a few of the labor movement efforts to engage workers and get out the vote, happening all around the country and providing a huge infusion of resources and boots on the ground to pro-worker candidates and causes.

          Long lines, machine breakdowns mar vote on Election Day      Cache   Translate Page      
ATLANTA – Problem signs that arose during weeks of early voting carried into Election Day as some voters across the country faced hours-long lines, malfunctioning voting equipment and unexpectedly closed polling places.

Some of the biggest backups were in Georgia, where the governor's race was among the nation's most-watched midterm contests and was generating heavy turnout.

One voter in Gwinnett County, Ontaria Woods, waited more than three hours and said she saw about two dozen people who had come to vote leave because of the lines.

"We've been trying to tell them to wait, but people have children," Woods said. "People are getting hungry. People are tired."

The good-government group Common Cause blamed high turnout combined with too few voting machines, ballots and workers.

Fulton County elections director Richard Barron acknowledged that some precincts did have lines of voters but said that was due to the length of the ballots and voting machines taken from use because of an ongoing lawsuit.

While voting went on without a hitch in many communities, voters from New York to Arizona faced long lines and malfunctioning equipment.

By Tuesday afternoon, the nonpartisan Election Protection hotline had received about 17,500 calls from voters reporting problems at their polling places. Kristen Clarke, president of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, which helps run the hotline, said that number was well ahead of the last midterm election in 2014, when it had received about 10,400 calls by the same time.

Tuesday's election marked the first nationwide voting since Russia targeted state election systems in the 2016 presidential race. Federal, state and local officials have been working to make the nation's myriad election systems more secure, and those efforts appeared to pay off.

There were no signs throughout the day that Russia or any other foreign actor had tried to launch cyberattacks against voting systems in any state, federal authorities said. There was also no indication that any systems have been compromised that would prevent voting, change vote counts or disrupt the ability to tally votes, U.S. officials said.

That was little comfort to voters who found themselves waiting in long lines or dealing with malfunctioning voting equipment.

Across New York City, reports of broken ballot scanners surfaced at several polling places. Turnout was so heavy at one packed precinct on Manhattan's Upper West Side that the line to scan ballots stretched around a junior high school gym. Poll workers there told voters that two of the roughly half-dozen scanners were malfunctioning and repairs were underway.

Voters arriving at two polling stations discovered that most scanners had broken down, forcing some people to drop their ballots in emergency ballot boxes or vote using affidavit ballots.

"There are broken scanners everywhere in Brooklyn," said Stefan Ringel, spokesman for Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams.

Ringel said Adams and his staff were being flooded with phone calls, emails and text messages reporting breakdowns in more than a dozen neighborhoods.

Compared with the 2016 elections, he said, "anecdotally, it seems worse, and there's confusion among poll workers about what to do."

Many voters nevertheless stuck it out, determined to cast their ballots.

"People are grumpy and frustrated but positive in a weird way, making jokes and talking to one another. I think it's because we all are in the 'no one will stop our vote today' mood," said Nikki Euell, an advertising producer who waited more than two hours to vote in Brooklyn's Greenpoint neighborhood.

The local breakdowns are a symptom of a larger problem with the nation's voting infrastructure, said Lawrence Norden, a voting technology expert with the Brennan Center.

More than 40 states use computerized voting machines that are more than a decade old or are no longer manufactured.

"It's further evidence, if any was needed, that it's long past time to modernize our voting infrastructure," Norden said. "Voters have a right to be frustrated by long lines. And they have a right to expect voting machines that work and have a paper backup."

Elsewhere, polling place confusion caused problems for voters and poll workers.

In Phoenix, a polling site was foreclosed on overnight, forcing poll workers to move it just in time for polls to open.

For about an hour after polls opened, a Sarasota County, Florida, precinct had to tell voters to come back later because their ballots were unavailable.

In one Indiana county, voting was snarled for hours because of what election officials said were computer problems checking in voters, while in another part of the state a judge ordered 12 polling places to stay open late after voting didn't start as scheduled.

In Texas, home of a hotly contested U.S. Senate race, delays were reported in Houston after apparent issues with registration check-in machines at some polling places. Later in the day, a judge ruled that nine Houston-area polling places would stay open beyond the usual closing time after advocacy groups complained that they didn't open on time and forced many voters to leave without casting ballots.

And in El Paso, the U.S. Border Patrol canceled a crowd control exercise that was scheduled for Tuesday, following criticism from civil liberties groups that it could dissuade people from voting.

Border Patrol agent Fidel Baca confirmed Tuesday that the exercise, in a Latino neighborhood, was canceled but declined to say why. The Texas Civil Rights Project said the exercise, billed by the Border Patrol as a mobile field force demonstration, was to be held within a half-mile (0.8 kilometers) of a polling site.

          History, Trump and partisan bitterness collide in Georgia      Cache   Translate Page      
ATLANTA – Voters in one of the nation's most closely watched governor's races cast ballots Tuesday amid an ongoing dispute about one of the candidates' management of Georgia's elections system, leaving open the possibility that the loser may not accept the outcome.

Republican Brian Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams are meeting in one of the signature contests of the 2018 midterm elections, with potential outcomes ranging from the election of America's first black woman governor to another four weeks of bitter, race-laden campaigning.

Adding to the Election Day drama, widespread reports of technical malfunctions and long lines at polling stations came in from across the state, with some voters reporting waits of up to three hours to cast ballots.

In Cobb County, just outside Atlanta, Nicole Whatley planned to vote for Abrams, partly because "of this whole social divisiveness that's been going on," she said, as she stood in line to vote outside a library in a cold rain Tuesday morning.

Whatley, 33, said she didn't appreciate how Kemp has adopted Trump's rhetoric on immigration.

"Kemp tried to play that Trump card to get where he's at," she said, adding that Abrams, by contrast, highlighted unity. "Her campaign spoke about partisanship and bringing people back together," Whatley said.

Her husband Lance Whatley, a 29-year-old software engineer, was leaning toward voting for Kemp as he waited. "It might be a game-time decision for me when I get in the voting booth," he said.

Abrams, a 44-year-old Atlanta attorney, former lawmaker and moonlighting romance novelist would be the first black woman in American history elected governor in any state and the first woman or nonwhite governor in Georgia history. She's already made history as the first black woman to be a major party gubernatorial nominee.

Kemp, a 54-year-old businessman and veteran secretary of state is vying to maintain the GOP's hold on a state that is nearing presidential battleground status courtesy of its growth and diversity. Republicans have won every Georgia governor's race since 2002.

Ballot access and election integrity flared up in the final weekend after a private citizen alerted the Georgia Democratic Party and a private attorney of potential vulnerability in the online voter database Kemp that oversees in his current job as secretary of state. Those private communications ended up with Kemp announcing, without providing any evidence, that he was launching an investigation into Georgia Democrats for "possible cybercrimes."

Kemp pushed back Monday against concerns that his call for an investigation is politically motivated.

But Abrams would have none of that, declaring Kemp a "bald-faced liar" intent on deflecting attention from security problems with his system.

Both nominees frame it as no less than a battle for Georgia's soul, a contest so intense that early voting has approached the overall number of ballots cast in the governor's race four years ago. Georgia law requires a majority to win, so the presence of a Libertarian on the ballot could yield a Dec. 4 runoff.

"I've never seen a time where the state of Georgia had more at stake than we do in this contest," Kemp told supporters at one of his final campaign stops.

In the closing days, Kemp basked in President Donald Trump's glow, after a Sunday rally that drew thousands of boisterous Republicans to central Georgia to see Trump deplane from Air Force One.

Abrams, meanwhile, continued as she has throughout her campaign noting the potential historical significance but arguing the contest should be about more.

"I don't want anyone to vote for me because I'm black," she told supporters in Savannah on Monday. "And no one on the ballot needs a vote because we're women. And I don't even want you to vote for us just because we're Democrats. You need to vote for us because we're better."

On policy, the principal dividing lines are health care (Abrams wants to expand Medicaid insurance; Kemp wants to maintain Georgia's refusal and boost rural hospitals); education (Kemp supports private school vouchers; Abrams opposes them); and criminal justice (Kemp is a law-and-order Republican; Abrams focuses on rehabilitating non-violent offenders and criticizes cash bail as unfair to poorer defendants).

But even the policy debates have played out as much as cultural identity battles as they have nuanced debates over policy details.

Abrams blasts Kemp as "an architect of voter suppression" for the way he's opted to enforce federal and state election laws. Kemp and other Republican groups have blasted Abrams as an extremist with backing from "socialists" who, in Kemp's estimation, "want to turn Georgia into California."

The Georgia outcome is among the most closely watched of any midterm contest for reasons beyond Abrams' race and gender. Democrats are expected to pick up several governor's seats across the country, particularly in the Midwest region that helped propel Trump to the White House in 2016. But flipping what has been a GOP stronghold like Georgia would signal a potential meaningful shift in the electorate and open up a new battleground ahead of 2020.

          Apple Cider Glazed Sweet Potatoes      Cache   Translate Page      
Wow, it’s November! It seems like it was just yesterday that I was complaining about summer ending. And now we’re smack-dab in the middle of fall. Fall! When everything is pumpkin flavored! Fall! When The Real Housewives of Atlanta is back on TV! Fall! When sweet potatoes are plentiful! So I decided to come up with a delicious sweet potato recipe for you. I thought to myself, “Hey! It’s fall! And I haven’t posted any sweet potato recipes yet this season!” Then while I was editing the photos for this post, I realized: oh, I did sweet potato gnocchi last week. I did do a sweet potato recipe this season. Oops. I guess since it was pasta, somehow it didn’t feel like a sweet potato recipe. Or something. But that’s okay, right? Because we can all use easy side dish ideas and that’s exactly what this Apple Cider Glazed Sweet Potatoes recipe is–easy! The potatoes are roasted in the oven until they’re tender and then glazed with an apple cider reduction. Simple! Back on the subject of fall, are you following my Fall Recipes board on Pinterest? I’m collecting all kinds of tasty fall foods there.

How saving even unsung historic buildings keeps the city’s character intact.

Our town is nothing if not giddy these days with each announcement of a planning or development scheme. Vision statements and building starts percolate daily from many directions, or so it seems. A James River Park System plan, revising the downtown plan, a proposal to eliminate Monroe Ward's surface parking lots, the $1.4 billion dollar Coliseum-Navy Hill redevelopment, replacing the Diamond, establishing a historic district in Blackwell, and a sweeping, updated master plan for Virginia Commonwealth University are all in the works.

Then there are ideas to improve the Jefferson Davis Highway corridor, build new housing on the site of old Armstrong High School, develop a medical building at the former Westhampton School, and conducting an international design competition for re-imagining Confederate-infused Monument Avenue.

Scott's Addition and Manchester continue to blossom, while along Brookland Park Boulevard and its vicinity, developers are shifting pedestrian-scaled projects into gear. Meanwhile building cranes loom over downtown, Jackson Ward and the flood wall on both sides of the river. Newly topped-off buildings punctuate the Manchester and Financial District skylines as site plans are flying off drawing boards for taller residential buildings along the path of the Pulse.

And this just in: Public input from a recent Richmond Times-Dispatch public square meeting included one on the 75 item wish list: to ramp up the city's population to 500,000.

Whew.

But here's the thing, in our rush to be macro — that is, taller, faster, denser, more intensive and more inclusive — we need to keep a cautious and protective focus on the micro. That entails holding tightly to the things that make Richmond, well, Richmond.

Of course, a list of what those things entail varies depending on whom you ask, but many agree that Richmond is predisposed to conservatism, for better or worse. This go-slowly attitude means that the region is emerging from some relatively sleepy decades, compared to the go-go, boom-boom aggressiveness of such cities to the south as Charlotte, Atlanta and Miami. This also means that Richmond has maintained much of the architectural soul of what makes it special, even quirky. Many of our old and newer historic neighborhoods, from Church Hill and Woodland Heights to Barton Heights, Hermitage Road and Lakeside to Scott's Addition, have never looked better.

However, disturbing things can accompany so-called progress, even in a city that proceeds with caution.

While the dizzying growth of VCU is, on balance, positive, the population and physical expansion have presented some cautionary situations. In Oregon Hill, after years of attempting to balance town vs. gown dynamics while repenting for the sins of demolishing hundreds of houses for the Downtown Expressway, for instance, something unfortunate occurred recently. This past spring, a solidly built row of modest but dignified and handsome antebellum buildings in the 800 block of West Cary Street was demolished. It is being replaced with a 100-unit apartment building — providing needed housing, of course — but offering zilch in architectural interest in exchange for the loss. With a modicum of imagination, and another pass or two at tweaking the design, the irreplaceable historic structures could have been woven into the plan, maintaining a link to the neighborhood's past and applying historic preservation tax credits to financing the project. It would have been the right thing to do.

While the Pulse bus system has added new visual energy to a 7-mile urban and suburban corridor from Willow Lawn to Rocketts Landing, planners are seeking to intensify housing along the route with taller buildings within a zone that planners are calling a "transit-oriented nodal district."

It didn't take long for one developer to announce his concept for building a 12-story chain hotel a block north of the 17th Street Farmers' Market at 127 N. 17th Street. Sadly, this would inject the first high-rise building into the tissue of Shockoe Bottom, a district of old, low-lying buildings, mostly fewer than five stories. It is one of our city's most evocative places, and probably sacred as well, with the still-untapped reservoir of painful stories to be researched and told regarding decades of slave trading that occurred here.

The developer of the proposed hotel did offer an extenuating olive branch: His intent is to weave the century-old Weiman's Bakery building that occupies the site into the plan — and gain historic tax credits for the gesture. Would that other developers showed the same, well, if in not quite sensitivity, at least savvy.

Three projects now in the works provide similar cases.

Arguments are back and forth on the fate of the Intermediate Terminal No. 3 near Rocketts Landing. Stone Brewing Co. had promised to convert the concrete warehouse, built in 1939, into a destination pub and restaurant at the hulking remnant from Richmond's time as a transfer point for sugar from the Caribbean. But it reneged, citing the structure's instability. Meanwhile opposing lines have been drawn to whether the building is even historic or not.

Since officials at the state's Department of Historic Resources withheld its approval of a historic designation, corporate and city officials consider this a pass.

"The complex has lost integrity of setting, design, materials, workmanship, feeling and appreciation," weighed in another local historian, "Interpreting and advancing the story of the commercial shipping history in Richmond does not hinge on salvaging a structure that rests in a flood plain and is beset by numerous structural issues. The history of Rockets Landing and its environs can be told eloquently and artfully absent this decaying building."

But in determining what is historic we might apply United States Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart's 1964 definition of pornography to what is old and historic: "I know it when I see it." If the Intermediate Terminal is the last survivor of what were once scores of riverfront buildings serving Richmond's maritime glory days, come on folks, it's historic.

And why would we even consider tearing down this 79-year-old commercial building? Restored, or left as a glorious empty vessel, it can be the building block, if not centerpiece, of whatever Stone Brewing might build nearby. Rather than either or, let's have old and new.

Consider. One reason our community has been slow to appropriately develop a visual narrative of the slave trade in Shockoe Bottom is that only one building still stands related to the heinous business. Old and historic buildings, architecturally distinguished or not, can be critical starting points when seeking to link the present and past. Lose the buildings and we lose that connection.

The same holds true of a threatened, 168-year-old building on West Cary Street near Nansemond Street that most recently housed a popular restaurant, Carytown Burger & Fries. The general consensus has long been that this worthy and solid, if battered, brick structure was a toll house during much of the 19th century when Cary was named the Westham Plank Road. The rustic highway, laid in dirt and wooden boards, connected Richmond with points west to the mountains along the James River.

Whether or not the toll taker actually lived here, is no big deal here in the 21st century. Today, it is the oldest house in the Museum District and more solid than most of the mid-20th centuries buildings that surround it. The historic resources department has decreed that it's not distinguished enough to receive historic designation. Maybe not, but it's at least 178 years old, for crying out loud. We're not going to have any more like it. Come on, save the darn building. The developer's description of the architectural plan for the proposed complex — a grocery store, parking deck and strip of shops— waxes poetic about how it will fit in with the historic aspects of Carytown. Such banter is cringe-worthy in the face of the loss of this tiny survivor of an important chapter in the neighborhood's history.

Similar goofiness is afoot in Scott's Addition.

It's shocking that a new apartment complex planned for Scott's Addition at West Broad and Summit calls for demolishing an architecturally elegant former SunTrust branch bank now on the site. The one-story, 10,000-square-foot building, built in 1948, is a top-notch colonial revival building that was built on the eve of modernism in Richmond. Its doorways and windows are handsome and its red bricks are laid in the Flemish bond pattern. If one squinted, it wouldn't be hard to imagine this as a house in Windsor Farms or Westmoreland Place where it would fetch $2 million and upwards. In fact, it was probably designed to catch the eye and serve folks who lived in those and less grand West End neighborhoods.

But despite it being a contributing historic structure to the official Scott's Addition Historic District, it is considered expendable to make way for a 166-unit apartment complex. The Summit, from what one can tell from a published rendering, has all the heft and charm of an Ocean City, Maryland, motel, complete with the name of the complex displayed in stacked letters on a prominent exterior wall.

Along with the glorious Handcraft Cleaners Building, a moderne masterwork, and the Blue Bee Cidery, with its rusticated cobblestone walls, this former bank is among the handsomest buildings in Scott's Addition. So why is it being demolished?

Probably for lack of effort or thought. Like the doomed, so-called toll house in Carytown, this classical gem, for some the gold standard in what Richmond domestic-scaled architecture is all about, could easily have been woven into the fabric of the larger development — and add grace notes to an otherwise ordinary design.

I know. We can't save everything. But that's the point: In the case of the Intermediate Terminal and the toll keeper's house everything else is gone. They are sole survivors. The former branch bank, that channels the spirit of Sir Christopher Wren, a late Renaissance English architect, is a standout because it is 180 degrees different from the stash of undistinguished midcentury modern warehouses that populate most of Scott's Addition. Ironically, it is the rare architectural outlier in a neighborhood that prides itself on being über cool.

These and other survivors and outliers are at risk. We shouldn't sacrifice what's left of our distinctive architectural patrimony for a transit-oriented nodal district. S

          Frank Ocean Gives Free Merch To People Who Vote In US Midterms       Cache   Translate Page      
“Because God Bless America…”

Frank Ocean really, really wants people to vote.

flyer posted to his Tumblr account earlier today encourages fans to get out and vote in the US midterm elections - which will decide who controls the House of Representatives - by giving them free merch in return.

Ocean’s post reads: “Bring proof (a photo of you at the ballot) that you voted to any of the locations below and get some free merch.

“Because God bless America.” The locations are in Houston, Miami, Dallas, and Atlanta.”

These cities were apparently chosen because of the states they’re in and the potential support Ocean fans could offer specific candidates: Stacey Abrams in Georgia, Andrew Gillum in Florida, and Beto O’Rourke.

The flyer also points out that the 42% of people who don’t currently vote in America is the country’s “the largest political group”.

An accompanying tweet said: “If you live/vote in one of these areas, tag us with a photo of the merch so the rest of blonded hive can feast with you.”

Frank (via Tyler The Creator) shared pictures of some of the early beneficiaries.

While encouraging fans, he was careful not to break any voting laws in different states...

Only time will tell how effective Ocean's political campaign has been...

Dù theo đảng nào hay ủng hộ ứng viên nào, người Việt chúng ta đều chia sẻ giá trị Tự Do, Dân Chủ, Nhân Quyền, Dân Quyền của Hoa Kỳ, và chung hoài bão muốn bảo vệ chủ quyền của Việt Nam trước sự xâm lăng của Trung Cộng.

Voice of Vietnamese Americans xin mời quý đồng hương cùng duyệt qua bức tranh chung, mong rằng qua kỳ bầu cử này người Mỹ gốc Việt sẽ chứng tỏ cho chính khách Hoa Kỳ và thế giới thấy được sự trưởng thành, lớn mạnh của người Mỹ gốc Việt và sẽ tôn trọng tiếng nói của chúng ta hơn khi quyết định các chính sách ảnh hưởng đến người Việt .

I . Cộng Đồng Mỹ Gốc Việt, dân số và lá phiếu:

Cho đến nay, trong các giống dân Mỹ gốc Á Châu Thái Bình Dương, cử tri gốc Việt đi bầu hăng hái nhất, đến 77 % . Tuy nhiên, tiếng nói của chúng ta lại chưa được hiệu quả lắm, nhất là với những chính sách đối ngoại như nhân quyền, hay đối phó với Trung Cộng trên Biển Đông.

Theo Migration Policy Institute, người Việt tập trung tại các tiểu bang California (39%), Texas (13%), Washington State (4%), và Florida (4%) . Tại các tiểu bang này chúng ta sớm có một số đại diện dân cử người Mỹ gốc Việt tại địa phương. Nhưng năm nay, số ứng viên tăng lên gấp bội, và gồm cả những tiểu bang miền Đông như Massachusetts, Viriginia, hay miền Nam như Georgia.

Theo tài liệu của Census Bureau cho đến năm 2016, thì chúng ta có khoảng 2 triệu người (2,067,000) tập trung tại các khu vực như California (Orange County, San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento, San Diego), Texas (Houston, Dallas – Fort Worth, Austin), Massachusetts (Boston), New Jersey, New York (New York City), Philadelphia, Virginia – Maryland – Washington D.C, Washington State (Seattle), Louisiana (New Orleans), Oregon (Portland), Oklahoma (Oklahoma City), Arizona (Phoenix), Nevada (Las Vegas), Georgia (Atlanta). Tại mỗi thành phố vừa nêu, có trên 10,000 ngàn người Việt cư ngụ . Đây là con số đáng kể nếu chúng ta đi bầu .

Theo nghiên cửu của Pew vào tháng 9/ 2017, thì 75% người Mỹ gốc Việt đã là công dân, và có thể đi bỏ phiếu. Đó là một con số đáng kể, nếu tất cả chúng ta khi có quốc tịch đều ghi danh cử tri và đi bầu .

Cuộc bầu cử giữa kỳ thường cho thấy mức ủng hộ của người dân đối với vị Tổng Thống đương nhiệm sau hai năm tại vị . Tổng Thống Trump là vị lãnh đạo không theo các tiêu chuẩn chính thống, đã tạo nhiều phân hoá trong toàn quốc trên nhiều phương diện, và có điểm tín nhiệm thấp nhất so với các vị Tổng Thống trước . Riêng với dân Mỹ gốc Việt, đài VOA ngày 26/10 đưa tin là 64% dân Việt tín nhiệm ông Trump, vì nghĩ rằng ông có thái độ cứng rắn với Trung Cộng. Nhiều người thích thú khi thấy ông Trump đánh thuế lên hàng Trung Quốc, và làm cho kinh tế Trung Cộng chao đảo, tuy Trung Cộng vẫn gia tăng áp lực lên Việt Nam và tiếp tục quân sự hoá Biển Đông.

Ngày 2/11, ông Trump tweeted rằng “các cuộc thảo luận thương mại với Trung Quốc đang diễn tiến tốt đẹp”. Trong cùng ngày, Ngoại Trưởng Vương Nghị của Trung Quốc khẳng định “Trung Quốc có chủ quyền tại Biển Đông” khi thăm New York . Đáp lại, Ngoại Trưởng Hoa Kỳ Mike Pompeo chỉ “nhắc khéo” đến thoả thuận chế tài Bình Nhưỡmg! Điều này khiến người Mỹ gốc Việt cũng cần thận trọng, xin nhớ rằng Hoa Kỳ phải đặt quyền lợi quốc gia của họ lên trên hết.

Trong bài đăng trên VOA ngày 26/10, phóng viên An Hải cũng nêu lên là “thế hệ thứ nhất ủng hộ Cộng Hoà”, còn “thế hệ thứ hai ủng hộ Dân Chủ”.

2 . Giới Trẻ tích cực ra tranh cử:

Rất đông người Mỹ gốc Việt trẻ tuổi đã tham dự cuộc biểu tình ngày 21/01/2017, một ngày ngay sau khi ông Trump đăng quang, tại Hoa Thịnh Đốn, trên các thành phố lớn toàn quốc, và trên toàn thế giới. Họ cho là ông không có đạo đức, coi thường phụ nữ, chế nhạo người tàn tật, kỳ thị người da màu, và không đủ kinh nghiệm cũng như thiếu tư cách để lãnh đạo quốc gia . Nhiều phụ nữ trẻ Mỹ gốc Việt đã chọn con đường tích cực là ra tranh cử trong các vai trò lập pháp tại tiểu bang hay liên bang, để có thể sử dụng hệ thống tam quyền phân lập trong guồng máy chính trị Hoa Kỳ hầu bảo vệ các giá trị nhân bản của Hiến Pháp Hoa Kỳ, trong đó có nhân quyền, dân quyền, và bình quyền về giới tính.

Tại Virginia, Bà Kathy Trần, một phụ nữ Việt tỵ nạn vừa sinh con gái ngày 20.1.2017, đã quyết định tranh cử vào ghế Dân Biểu Tiểu Bang Virginia để: “Bảo vệ tương lai cho con gái tôi và duy trì môi trường, nhân quyền, dân quyền cho người dân Virginia” . Kathy Trần (D) đã thắng cử ngoạn mục, thay thế ông Dave Albo (R), người từng giữ ghế này suốt 24 năm.
Kathy Trần phản đối việc Tổng Thống Trump rút ra khỏi Paris Climate Agreement, đòi huỷ Luật Bảo Hiểm Y Tế Vừa Túi Tiền, cắt ngân sách cho các chương trình bảo vệ sức khoẻ phụ nữ, chuyển ngân quỹ giáo dục công lập sang cho các trường tư thục, và có các đạo luật hành chánh vi phạm quyền của người di dân và người da màu .

Nhiều người trẻ khác cũng ra tranh cử vào các ghế lập pháp liên bang, như Bác Sĩ Mai Khanh Trần (D - địa hạt 39, California), anh Ethan Phạm (D -đia hạt 8, Texas), anh Daniel Nguyễn ( R-địa hạt 22, Texas), Bà Stephanie Ngọc-Dung Đặng Murphy (D- Dân Biêu Liên Bang từ Florida địa hạt 7) .

Quốc Hội Tiểu Bang có lẽ gần gũi hơn, và năm nay có khá nhiều ứng viên Mỹ gốc Việt tranh cử, từ California (TNS tiểu bang Janet Nguyễn (R) tái tranh cử; ứng viên Tyler Diệp (R ) tranh cử vào ghế General Assembly), đến Massachusetts (Luật sư Trâm Nguyễn- D- tranh cử vào ghế Dân Biểu Tiểu Bang từ địa hạt 18th Essex), và tại tiểu bang Washington (Bác Sĩ Savio Phạm -R, Bác Sĩ Joe Nguyễn - D - tranh cử vào thượng viện tiểu bang, Dược sĩ Mỹ-Linh Thái – D- tranh cử vào ghế dân biểu liên bang).

Tại Westminster, Orange County, nơi người Việt chiếm 1/5 dân số, có đến 6 ứng viên Mỹ gốc Việt tranh cử ghế Nghị Viên Hội Đồng Thành Phố: Khải Đào, Tài Đỗ; Chi Charlie Nguyen, Frances The-Thuy Nguyen, Samantha Bao Anh Nguyen, Andy Quach. Đó là chưa kể chúng ta đã có Thị Trưởng Tạ Đức Trí, Nghị Viên Thành Phố Nguyễn Tâm cũng đang tái tranh cử.

Tại Texas, chúng ta có Dân Biểu Tiểu Bang Hubert Võ (D) đại diện địa hạt 149 từng được tín nhiệm suốt 5 nhiệm kỳ; Commissioner Andy Nguyễn ở Taran County rất được lòng cử tri, cũng tái tranh cử . Đặc biệt có anh Danny Nguyễn (R) tranh cử kỳ sơ bộ vào ghê Dân Biểu Liên Bang từ Texas địa hạt 22, nhưng không vào chung kết . Chính tại địa hạt 22 này, chúng ta có Nathan Trương, một người Mỹ gốc Việt mới 26 tuổi, đang vận động cho ứng viên Sri Preston Kulkarni (D) và tạo nhiều tiếng vang .

Chúng ta cũng đã có một số người thắng cử các cuộc bầu cử đặc biệt và đã thắng vẻ vang, như Cô Bee Nguyễn (D), Dân Biểu Tiểu Bang Georgia địa hạt 89; Dean Tran (R) – Thượng Nghị Sĩ Tiểu Bang Massachusetts qua cuộc bầu cử đặc biệt vào tháng 12, 2017 .

Theo dõi các ứng viên Mỹ gốc Việt, chúng ta thấy tuy khác đảng phái, họ cùng chia sẻ những điểm chung sau đây:
1.    Là người Việt tỵ nạn Cộng Sản, sang Hoa Kỳ khi còn nhỏ tuổi.
2.    Hiểu được sự khó khăn của cha mẹ, gia đình trong bước đầu của người di dân .
3.    Ngoài khả năng vượt trội, họ còn có lý tưởng muốn đóng góp và tạo thay đổi .
4.    Vẫn còn mang trong người dòng máu Việt, tâm thức Việt, nhưng đã hoà nhập với đời sống Hoa Kỳ, giá trị nhân bản của Hoa Kỳ, với đầu óc rộng mở để phục vụ xứ sở này .
Sự dấn thân của người Mỹ gốc Việt vào guồng máy Lập Pháp và Hành Pháp của Hoa Kỳ từ địa phương, đến tiểu bang, liên bang, là nguồn hứng khởi cho cử tri Mỹ gốc Việt. Những ứng viên này thuộc cả đảng Dân Chủ lẫn Cộng Hoà, và đều có khả năng cùng tâm huyết vượt trội.

Nhìn chung, các ứng viên đều chủ trương tranh đấu để nói lên tiếng nói của khối dân thiểu số Mỹ gốc Việt , Mỹ gốc Á Châu Thái Bình Dương , mong đạt đến sự đối xử bình đẳng không kỳ thị cho mọi giống dân . Các ứng viên tuy khác đảng phái, nhưng cùng quan tâm đến vấn đề y tế, di dân, giáo dục, nghề nghiệp, giao thương,và gần đây nhất là chuyện sử dụng sung, và quyền có quốc tịch Hoa Kỳ.

Khi tranh cử vào dòng chính, các ứng viên khó có cơ hội đề cập đến các vần đề người Việt quan tâm, như nhân quyền cho Việt Nam, hay tranh chấp trên Biển Đông . Cử tri Mỹ gốc Việt chúng ta cần lưu ý mọi ứng viên về các quan tâm này, đưa vào trong nội dung của “giá trị nhân bản của Hoa Kỳ, và quyền lợi quốc gia Hoa Kỳ” .

Voice of Vietnamese Americans có dịp tổ chức buổi “Nói Chuyện với Ứng Cử Viện vào Hạ Viện Hoa Kỳ từ Virginia Địa Hạt 8”, giữa ứng viên Don Beyer (D)- Dân Biểu đương nhiệm, và ứng viên Thomas Oh (R ), người Mỹ gốc Đại Hàn . Khi câu hỏi đưa ra về nhân quyền, TPP, và tranh chấp trên Biển Đông, thì ông Don Beyer (D ) lại đứng về phía người Việt và người Đông Nam Á đòi Trung Cộng phải tôn trọng luật quốc tế, trong khi ông Thomas Oh trả lời không biết nhiều về các vấn đề này .

3. Vai trò của Cử Tri:

Là cử tri, chúng ta cũng cần tham dự các buổi nói chuyện với ứng viên, và chia sẻ với họ các điều chúng ta quan tâm. Như vậy, lá phiếu của người Mỹ gốc Việt sẽ có ý nghĩa hơn .

Tiếng Nói Người Mỹ Gốc Việt đề nghị chúng ta bỏ phiếu theo tiêu chuẩn : Nhiên (bảo vệ môi trường, khí hậu) – Nhân (bảo vệ nhân quyền) – Dân (bảo vệ dân quyền) để song đôi với quan tâm của đồng bào tại Việt Nam trong lúc vẫn đặt nặng giá trị của Hoa Kỳ .

Chúng ta rât may mắn có một thế hệ trẻ tài giỏi, nhiêt huyết, dấn thân. Hãy cùng nhau hỗ trợ họ để cùng đi tới. Voice of Vietnamese Americans hoan hô tất cả những ai đã dấn thân phục vụ cộng đồng.

Xin cử tri Mỹ gốc Việt hãy đi bầu thật đông năm nay, ngày 6 tháng 11, 2018..

Thứ Hai, ngày 05 tháng 11 năm 2018

Ngày 06/11/2018, cử tri tại Hoa Kỳ sẽ đi bỏ phiếu trong cuộc bầu cử giữa nhiệm kỳ. Cũng như các cuộc bầu cử khác, lá phiếu của các cộng đồng sắc tộc, tùy theo mỗi địa phương, cũng rất quan trọng. Riêng cộng đồng người Việt thì mức độ tham gia như thế nào, xu hướng bỏ phiếu của họ ra sao, hôm nay chúng ta sẽ cùng tìm hiểu với nhà báo Hà Ngọc Cư ở Houston, Texas.

Theo nhà báo Hà Ngọc Cư, bầu cử giữa kỳ năm nay rất quan trọng, vì sự thay đổi về số người được bầu trong Hạ, Thượng Viện sẽ làm thay đổi cán cân quyền lực của đảng Cộng Hòa và của tổng thống Donald Trump.

Về lá phiếu cử tri người Việt, theo nhà báo Hà Ngọc Cư, có hai vấn đề:

" Thứ nhất, trong cuộc bầu cử vào các chức vụ dân cử địa phương, lá phiếu của người Việt đương nhiên có ảnh hưởng khá lớn, nhất là ở tiểu bang California và Texas. Trong cuộc bầu cử liên bang, số người Việt ở Mỹ chưa tới 3 triệu, tức là chưa tới 1% dân số Mỹ. Số người có thể đi bầu, tức là có quốc tịch Mỹ, là chưa tới một nữa của 1% đó."

Trong cộng đồng người Việt, năm nay có nhiều người hăng hái ra tranh cử vào các chức vụ công quyền ở Orange County ( Quận Cam ), miền nam bang California và đây là điều khiến truyền thông Hoa Kỳ chú ý. Nhật báo Los Angeles Times ngày 21/10 ngạc nhiên ghi nhận có đến 24 người gốc Việt tranh cử ở Orange County và không có gì là bất ngờ lắm : hơn phân nữa, tức là 13 trong số 24 ứng cử viên gốc Việt đó là mang họ Nguyễn, một trong những họ phổ biến nhất của dân Việt Nam.

Phong trào người Việt ra tranh cử dường như bắt đầu từ năm 1992, khi nghị viên thành phố Westminster Tony Lâm trở thành người sinh ra ở Việt Nam đầu tiên đắc cử ở Hoa Kỳ. Theo tờ Los Angeles Times, các ứng cử viên gốc Việt chủ yếu tập trung ở các khu vực Fountain Valley, Garden Grove, và Westminster, tức những thành phố làm nên khu vực gọi là Little Saigon. Cư dân gốc Việt ra tranh những chức vụ quan trọng trong hội đồng thành phố hay nghị viên tiểu bang, cũng như tranh cử vào những chức vụ thấp hơn như như ủy viên giáo dục,...

Trong số 24 ứng cử viên Mỹ gốc Việt tại Quận Cam, thượng nghị sĩ tiểu bang Janet Nguyễn là một chính khách kỳ cựu, tham gia tranh cử lần thứ 9 trong cuộc bầu cử ngày mai. Nói với tờ Times, bà Janet Nguyễn tỏ ra không quá ngạc nhiên về mức độ tham gia chính trị trong cộng đồng mình. Theo thượng nghị sĩ Janet Nguyen, vốn là những người tị nạn chính trị, các đồng hương của bà biết rõ cuộc sống ở một đất nước nơi mà các quyền tự do hầu như không hiện hữu và nơi mà một chính đảng kiểm soát mọi phương diện đời sống. Bà cho rằng trải nghiệm đó đã khiến cho người Mỹ gốc Việt tương đối năng động về chính trị, đi bỏ phiếu đông đảo hơn một số nhóm cư dân khác.

Nhưng đứng từ phía Texas, tiểu bang cũng có một cộng đồng người Việt rất đông đảo, nhà báo Hà Ngọc Cư nhận xét là nhìn chung hoạt động chính trị của người Việt lại đang giảm đi :

" Ở Texas, các ứng cử viên vào những chức vụ như ủy viên hội đồng thành phố hay dân biểu tiểu bang, cũng có một vài người Việt, ví dụ như ông Hubert Võ đã đắc cử dân biểu 2, 3 lần. Ngoài ra cũng có một vài vị ra tranh cử các chức vụ địa phương và cũng có một số thành công, nhưng không nhiều lắm so với các cộng đồng thiểu số khác.
Những người lớn tuổi như chúng tôi thì bây giờ "trùm chăn", không còn tham gia vào hoạt động chính trị ở địa phương, nhưng trong giới trẻ thì có một số tham gia.
Cách đây một vài thập niên, việc tham gia hoạt động chính trị địa phương rất là mạnh là vì tinh thần chống cộng lúc đó lên rất cao, nhưng cái sự chống cộng, theo tôi, dần dần không còn mạnh mẽ như trước. Do đó, hoạt động chính trị của người Việt trên nước Mỹ cũng giảm đi".

Theo ghi nhận của các chuyên gia được tờ Los Angeles Times trích dẫn, đa số các ứng cử viên gốc Việt là theo đảng Cộng Hòa, tuy rằng thế hệ trẻ hơn nay có xu hướng theo đảng Dân Chủ hoặc tranh cử với tư cách ứng cử viên độc lập. Cử tri Mỹ gốc Việt trong quá khứ vẫn được xem là thành phần nòng cốt của đảng Cộng Hòa, nhất là những người chống cộng quyết liệt nhất. Nhưng cộng đồng người Việt tị nạn đang già đi và thế hệ con, cháu của họ nay có đầu óc cấp tiến hơn.

Tuy vậy, kết quả một cuộc khảo sát về cử tri gốc Á công bố vào tháng 10 cho thấy người Mỹ gốc Việt là cộng đồng gốc Á duy nhất có đa số là ủng hộ tổng thống Donald Trump.
Khảo sát do tổ chức thúc đẩy quyền bầu cử cho người Mỹ gốc Á và Thái Bình Dương- APIAVote, và Viện Nghiên Cứu Người Mỹ Gốc Á và Thái Bình Dương- AAPIData- thực hiện từ ngày 23/08 đến ngày 4/10/2018.

Kết quả tổng quát cho thấy chỉ có 36% cử tri gốc Á ủng hộ tổng thống Donald Trump, nhưng riêng cử tri gốc Việt ủng hộ ông Trump với tỉ lệ lên tới 64%. Ngay cả cử tri gốc Philippines, đồng minh thân cận của Mỹ, cũng chỉ có 48% ủng hộ ông Trump.

Lý do tại sao người Mỹ gốc Việt lại ủng hộ tổng thống Trump nhiều đến thế, nhà báo Hà Ngọc Cư giải thích :

" Những người Việt thế hệ đầu tiên, tức là 60, 70 tuổi, phần nhiều nghiêng về đảng Cộng Hòa. Còn thế hệ cử tri gốc Việt trình độ đại học thì thường nghiêng về phía Dân Chủ. Năm nay, đặc biệt ông Trump đối đầu về thương mại với Trung Quốc, cho nên ông được rất nhiều điểm từ cử tri gốc Việt. Người Việt chúng ta thì đại đa số là hận Trung Quốc, cho nên bất cứ người nào đập Trung Quốc là đương nhiên được cảm tình người Việt."

Cũng theo kết quả nói trên, trong khi cử tri gốc Á nói chung ủng hộ mạnh mẽ đảng Dân Chủ, thì cử tri gốc Việt lại có xu hướng dồn phiếu cho các ứng cử viên Cộng Hòa tranh cử vào Hạ Viện.

Cũng trong cộng đồng người Việt, như kết quả khảo sát ở trên cho thấy, cử tri thế hệ trẻ lại có xu hướng bầu cho Dân Chủ. Nhà báo Hà Ngọc Cư ghi nhận :

" Suy nghĩ của thế hệ trẻ hoàn toàn độc lập và hoàn toàn mang bản sắc của người Mỹ, nên suy nghĩ của họ khác hẳn với chúng tôi. Phần lớn thế hệ trẻ có trình độ đại học là hướng về phía Dân Chủ. Vì cương lĩnh của đảng Dân Chủ trước hết là liberal, mà giới trẻ thì cũng liberal, nên thường họ có khuynh hướng nghiêng về phía Dân Chủ."

Nhưng khi được hỏi về dự định đi bỏ phiếu ngày mai, chỉ có .... 64% cử tri người Việt trả lời là có, trong khi tỷ lệ này trong cộng đồng Philippines lên đến 92%. Theo nhà báo Hà Ngọc Cư, có nhiều lý do giải thích vì nhiều cử tri gốc Việt ngại đi bầu :

" Có nhiều người cho rằng lá phiếu của người Việt trong cuộc bầu cử liên bang không có ảnh hưởng gì hết, cho nên có một số người thờ ơ, ít đi bầu. Thứ hai, ngày bầu cử lại là thứ Ba. Người Việt đa số phải đi làm, xin nghỉ cũng khó khăn và có khi đi làm về trễ, cho nên cũng ngại, không đi bầu. Một số người già thì không có phương tiện đi lại, trừ một số người bỏ phiếu qua bưu điện."

          BẦU CỬ GIỮA KỲ 2018 : KHOẢNH KHẮC XOAY TRỤC CHO NƯỚC MỸ & THẾ GIỚI? (Vy Xuân - Zing.vn)       Cache   Translate Page      



Posted on 06/11/2018 by The Observer

Nước Mỹ bước vào cuộc bầu cử giữa kỳ “chưa từng có tiền lệ”, với Tổng thống Donald Trump, rất nhiều tiền, sự đa dạng trong ứng viên và sự chia rẽ sâu sắc trong công chúng.

*
Khi tháng 11 sang và Barack Obama tiến gần đến ngày kỷ niệm 10 năm ông đắc cử tổng thống Mỹ, người ta thấy cựu tổng thống một lần nữa có mặt tại các buổi vận động tranh cử. Lần này, ông không tranh cử để giành lấy lá phiếu có tên mình, mà kêu gọi người dân, đặc biệt là người trẻ tuổi, đi bỏ phiếu cho đảng Dân chủ trong cuộc bầu cử mà ông gọi là “quan trọng nhất trong cuộc đời các bạn, có lẽ còn quan trọng hơn năm 2008 nữa”.

Một người khác cũng đang bay khắp đất nước, có mặt tại những bang chiến lược để vận động cho những lá phiếu “không có tên mình”. Đó là Tổng thống Donald Trump.

Vào ngày hôm nay, 6/11, thế giới sẽ có được cái nhìn đầu tiên về nước Mỹ, 2 năm sau cú sốc Donald Trump đắc cử vào Nhà Trắng, điều mà những người như Obama từng cảnh báo là “một mối đe dọa”.

Cử tri Mỹ sẽ bỏ phiếu để bầu lại tất cả 435 ghế của Hạ viện; 35 ghế, tức khoảng 1/3 của Thượng viện; và chọn ra 36 thống đốc bang.

Trong số 35 ghế Thượng viện sẽ được bầu lại vào hôm nay, chỉ có 9 ghế hiện do người Cộng hòa đang nắm và 26 ghế do phe Dân chủ chiếm, tức cơ hội để đảng Dân chủ giành thêm ghế và kiểm soát Thượng viện là khá thấp, theo trang phân tích dữ liệu bầu cử FiveThirtyEight. Dù vậy, đảng Dân chủ nhiều cơ hội sẽ giành lại được Hạ viện trong lần bầu cử này.

Đây là kỳ bầu cử giữa kỳ sôi động nhất trong vào 20 năm qua tại Mỹ, xét từ cả kết quả thăm dò dư luận, lượng tiền được đổ vào quá trình vận động tranh cử và sự đa dạng của các ứng viên.

Trong số ứng viên ra tranh cử, có 411 người là phụ nữ, người da màu, người thuộc cộng đồng LGBT hoặc 216 người là người da đen, gốc Latin, châu Á, người Mỹ bản địa hoặc đa sắc tộc, đưa cuộc bầu cử năm nay trở thành một trong những cuộc bầu cử đa dạng nhất trong lịch sử.

Cuộc bầu cử này cũng chứng kiến lượng tiền đổ vào từ các “mạnh thường quân” tăng cao và tổng chi tiêu cho vận động tranh cử lần đầu tiên vượt mốc 5,2 tỷ USD (con số ngày 4 và 8 năm trước chỉ xấp xỉ nhau, chưa tới 4 tỷ USD).

Tất cả sự hứng khởi đến từ các cử tri trẻ tuổi với nguồn gốc đa dạng hay “cơn lốc tiền” để vào chiến dịch tranh cử đều tập trung ở đảng Dân chủ. Trong khi đó, những người Cộng hòa lại bước vào cuộc bầu cử với thành quả là Mỹ lần đầu trở lại vị trí nền kinh tế cạnh tranh nhất toàn cầu trong 10 năm qua, tăng trưởng kinh tế trong quý 2 năm nay đạt mức tốt nhất trong 4 năm, tỷ lệ thất nghiệp thấp nhất kể từ năm 1969.

“Lịch sử nước Mỹ vốn luôn chia rẽ…”

Nhưng hiếm khi sự chia rẽ ở Mỹ lớn đến thế này và được cổ súy bởi chính tổng thống đương nhiệm, theo các nhà chỉ trích.

Kết quả thăm dò của viện Pew cho thấy những người Mỹ Dân chủ và Cộng hòa tiếp tục xung đột với nhau ở hầu hết mối quan tâm cơ bản: nhập cư, chăm sóc sức khỏe, công bằng trong kinh tế, phá thai… Hầu như không thể tìm thấy một sự nhượng bộ hay điểm chung nào trong định hướng của những người ủng hộ hai đảng này với nhau.

Tổng thống Trump không làm mọi thứ tốt lên. Những người chỉ trích nói rằng các ứng viên tổng thống thường nói những lời dễ nghe với cử tri tiềm năng của mình và có phần công kích bên kia, nhưng khi đắc cử, nhiệm vụ của tổng thống là phải hàn gắn đất nước. Ông Trump “tuyên chiến” nhiều hơn.

Hơn 10 ngày trước cuộc bầu cử, hàng loạt thành viên đảng Dân chủ – trong đó có cựu tổng thống Barack Obama và cựu đối thủ của Trump, bà Hillary Clinton – cùng văn phòng CNN nhận được bưu phẩm chứa chất nổ.

Tổng thống Trump, sau những tuyên bố mạnh mẽ ban đầu trước một hành động bạo lực, đã hướng chú ý của ông về nỗi lo dành cho đảng mình. “Những người Cộng hòa đang thể hiện rất tốt trong kỳ bầu cử sớm và các cuộc thăm dò, giờ thì chuyện ‘bom’ xảy ra và động lực bị chậm đi. Những gì đang xảy ra rất không may. Những người Cộng hòa, hãy ra ngoài và đi bầu”, tổng thống nói trên Twitter.

Michael Cornfield, phó giáo sư tại Trường Quản lý Chính trị ở Đại học George Washington, nói rằng Tổng thống Trump “đã đi xa khỏi cách mà phần lớn tổng thống sẽ phản ứng lại một hành vi khủng bố trong nước”.

Thay vào đó, ông dùng đặt chữ “bom” trong dấu nháy ở dòng “tweet”, hành động bị chỉ trích là mở đường cho các thuyết âm mưu về nguồn gốc của bưu phẩm này và việc nó xuất hiện ngay kỳ bầu cử.

Tình trạng chia rẽ được dự đoán sẽ kéo dài sau cả cuộc bầu cử. Thậm chí, một chiến thắng của đảng Dân chủ sẽ đẩy tình hình tại Washington D.C. vào thế bế tắc. Bất kỳ dự luật nào do phe Dân chủ đề xuất, dù đã được thông qua bởi lưỡng viện, hoàn toàn có thể bị tổng thống bác bỏ.

Tuy nhiên, Tổng thống Trump không phải là nguyên nhân hay tác nhân duy nhất. Chiến thắng của ông là hiện thân của những bất mãn âm ỉ nhiều thập niên qua trong lòng nước Mỹ còn hai năm vừa qua tại Nhà Trắng và sự ủng hộ mà Trump nhận được từ lưỡng viện, đối với những chính sách đầy tranh cãi, lại là biểu hiện cho sự chia rẽ, một đặc điểm của chính trị Mỹ với lịch sử còn lâu đời hơn những bất đồng bên trên.

“Sự phân cực là một lịch sử lâu dài trong nền chính trị Mỹ. Chúng ta hãy tin vào sự thật rằng chúng ta vẫn sống sót đến ngày nay, và đã vượt qua những giai đoạn còn tồi tệ hơn”, Laura Ellyn Smith, Khoa Lịch sử, Đại học Mississippi, nói với Quartz.

“Năm của phụ nữ” lần 2?

Nhiệm kỳ của Tổng thống Trump đã bắt đầu bằng cuộc Tuần hành Phụ nữ (Women’s March) trên khắp nước Mỹ một ngày sau khi ông nhậm chức. Cũng trong năm 2017, phong trào #MeToo chống quấy rối tình dục đã từ Hollywood và nước Mỹ lan khắp thế giới.

Hai năm sau đó, trong số 962 ứng viên, có 262 phụ nữ đang chạy đua vào các vị trong Thượng viện, Hạ viện và chức thống đốc các bang, và đây là một con số kỷ lục.

“Nếu có ai đó hỏi tôi cách đây 3 năm, ‘cô sẽ ra tranh cử chứ?’, tôi sẽ cười vào họ”, Jasmine Clark, bà mẹ 2 con 35 tuổi và là ứng viên cho vị trí hạ nghị sĩ của bang Georgia, nói với Washington Post.

Clark là nhà khoa học vi sinh tại Đại học Emory. Cô mặc pyjama và khóc trong đêm ông Trump đắc cử rồi tổ chức cuộc Tuần hành Khoa học tại thành phố Atlanta của Georgia, cuộc tụ tập của hàng nghìn người phản đối việc ông Trump chống lại các bằng chứng và cuộc chiến chống biến đổi khí hậu.

“Tôi là phụ nữ, tôi là người da màu và tôi là một nhà khoa học. Tôi cảm thấy từ khi Trump đắc cử, tất cả các phần trong căn tính tôi bị tấn công”.
“Nên tôi ra tranh cử”, cô nói.

Tại Arizona, nơi chưa từng có một người phụ nữ nào bước vào Thượng viện, mọi thứ chắc chắn sẽ thay đổi trong năm nay khi một trong hai người phụ nữ, Kyrsten Sinema và Martha McSally, trở thành thượng nghị sĩ sau ngày 6/11.

Ứng viên của đảng Cộng hòa cho vị trí này là Martha McSally, người có 26 năm phục vụ trong Không lực Mỹ, trở thành phi công đầu tiên bay trong một cuộc tham chiến và ra tranh cử trong bộ đồ phi công màu xanh có may lá cờ Mỹ và tên của bà. McSally chỉ trích đối thủ của mình là “người phụ nữ váy hồng đi biểu tình” trong lúc bà chiến đấu vì nước Mỹ.

Tuy nhiên, sự đa dạng giới trong cuộc bầu cử năm nay không diễn ra ở lưỡng đảng. Trong số 262 ứng viên nữ cho các vị trí, 207 người thuộc đảng Dân chủ, theo thống kê của Trung tâm nghiên cứu Phụ nữ và Chính trị.

Trên CNN, Karine Jean-Pierre của Đại học Columbia lưu ý rằng trong năm bầu cử 1992, người ta cũng gọi đó là “Năm của Phụ nữ”. Đó là cuộc bầu cử sau khi Anita Hill cáo buộc Clarence Thomas, cấp trên cũ của bà và là người đang đợi phê chuẩn cho vị trí thẩm phán Tòa Tối cao Mỹ, đã quấy rối tình dục mình. Đó cũng là số phụ nữ chạy đua vào các vị trí trong cuộc bầu cử nhiều ở mức chưa từng có và Carol Moseley-Braun trở thành người phụ nữ đa đen đầu tiên đắc cử vào Thượng viện.

26 năm sau, khi nước Mỹ là nơi khởi phát cho phong trào #MeToo chống quấy rối tình dục, người ta vẫn cần một “Năm của Phụ nữ” cho các cuộc bầu cử. Và cũng trùng hợp, Thượng viện Mỹ vừa phê chuẩn vị trí thẩm phán Tòa Tối cao đối với Brett Kavanaugh sau nhiều cáo buộc quấy rối tình dục nhắm vào ông.

“Chúng ta đã có ‘Năm của Phụ nữ’ trước đây và đó chỉ là hiện tượng một đêm, nhưng đây là một sự chuẩn bị”, Reuters dẫn lời Celinda Lake, người phân tích thăm dò của đảng Dân chủ. “Sẽ có một số lượng kỷ lục phụ nữ đắc cử, cũng sẽ có một số lượng kỷ lục thất cử. Điều quan trọng là họ tái tranh cử”.

Còn quá sớm để gọi đây là cuộc bầu cử của phụ nữ. Và dù những người phụ nữ có chiến thắng, họ cũng sẽ bước vào Điện Capitol với một tổng thống đã gọi phong trào nữ quyền là “thời khắc đáng sợ với đàn ông” và một thẩm phán tối cao bị ít nhất 3 người phụ nữ tố cáo đã quấy rối tình dục họ.

Cuộc trưng cầu dân ý về Trump

“Tên tôi không có trên phiếu bầu, nhưng tôi vẫn ở trên phiếu bầu, vì đây là một cuộc trưng cầu dân ý về tôi”, Tổng thống Donald Trump đứng trước cử tri tại Southaven, Mississippi và xác nhận điều báo chí đã nói nhiều tháng nay. “Tôi muốn các bạn đi bỏ phiếu. Hãy coi như tên tôi ở trên phiếu”.

Nhiều cử tri Mỹ sẽ bước vào phòng bỏ phiếu và mang theo ký ức về buổi tối ngày 8/11/2016, thời khắc Donald Trump đắc cử tổng thống Mỹ.

“Trái tim tôi chết đi khi đó. Bố tôi lật mồ của ông ấy”, Guardian dẫn lời Maureen Osiecki, một hưu trí 76 tuổi sống tại bang Michigan.

Sống ở bên kia đường so với bà Osiecki, bà Linda Andrews, 66 tuổi,lại  nói rằng bà sẽ bỏ phiếu cho những người Cộng hòa.

“Những dòng tweet của Trump không ‘đúng đắn về chính trị’ nhưng những kẻ ‘đúng đắn về chính trị’ lại chẳng làm gì cả. Trump đang làm điều ông ấy nói sẽ làm, ông ấy là người giữ lời. Tôi đã thử những lời đường mật rồi và chúng chẳng giúp gì cả”, bà nói.

Những lá phiếu vào ngày 6/11, dù mang tên hàng trăm người khác, sẽ giải đáp câu hỏi người Mỹ ai đã và ai không hối hận về lựa chọn của họ vào năm 2016. Hai năm đầu nhiệm kỳ của Tổng thống Trump đã chứng kiến hàng loạt vụ bê bối tại Washington D.C., sự thách thức các chuẩn mực hiến pháp và hủy hoại đáng kể đối với các thể chế nước Mỹ đang xây dựng nhiều thập niên qua để duy trì trật tự thế giới.

Nhưng cũng trong hai năm đó, Tổng thống Trump đã giữ rất nhiều lời hứa với cử tri của ông, kể cả những lời hứa gây tranh cãi nhất, trải qua một giai đoạn kinh tế tốt đẹp và định hình Tòa Tối cao Mỹ thêm một thế hệ nữa bằng việc đề cử thành công một thẩm phán bảo thủ.

Một cuộc khảo sát của Wall Street Journal  NBC News, công bố hôm 4/11, cho thấy vai trò của tổng thống trong lá phiếu: 32% người được hỏi nói rằng phiếu bầu của họ là thông điệp ủng hộ Trump, 40% nói rằng đó là thông điệp phản đối và 28% nói rằng đó không phải là về tổng thống.

Ở phía ngược lại, cuộc bầu cử này còn là bài kiểm tra cho những “luồng năng lượng chống Trump” được hình thành từ cuộc Tuần hành Phụ nữ vào năm 2017 để xem liệu phong trào có đủ lớn mạnh để đe dọa đến tổng thống hay chưa.

Đa số các dự đoán cho thấy đảng Dân chủ có nhiều cơ hội giành lại Hạ viện trong khi Thượng viện vẫn do đảng Cộng hòa kiểm soát. Bất kỳ chương trình nghị sự nào của tổng thống hay đảng Cộng hòa đều sẽ bị đình trệ và cản trở nếu đảng Dân chủ có được một chiến thắng ở bất kỳ viện nào.

Đảng chiếm đa số có quyền bổ nhiệm các ủy ban trong viện, nơi sẽ ra “trát tòa” để mở các phiên điều trần. Dưới một Hạ viện do đảng Dân chủ kiểm soát, các cộng sự của Tổng thống Trump có nhiều nguy cơ hơn phải ra trước phiên điều trần, từ mối liên hệ với Nga hay công việc làm ăn của gia đình tổng thống.

Trong kịch bản khó khăn hơn, nếu đảng Dân chủ giành được cả lưỡng viện, hoặc chỉ Thượng viện, tổng thống sẽ đối mặt với chuỗi ngày khó khăn trong việc thuyết phục Thượng viện phê chuẩn cho các vị trí nội các và thẩm phán Tòa Tối cao mà ông đề cử. Với hầu hết trường hợp, luật lệ tại Thượng viện cho phép phê chuẩn một đề cử của tổng thống với đa số tối thiểu, đồng nghĩa với việc trong 2 năm qua, hàng loạt người ông đề cử đã được phê chuẩn mà không cần bất kỳ sự ủng hộ nào của đảng Dân chủ. Tổng thống sẽ thật sự gặp rắc rối nếu điều này xảy ra, trong bối cảnh một cuộc “ra đi hàng loạt” trong nội các đang được dự báo sẽ diễn ra sau kỳ bầu cử giữa kỳ.

Tuy nhiên, điều được nói đến nhiều, sự luận tội tổng thống, không có nhiều cơ hội xảy ra. Quá trình luận đội bắt đầu ở Hạ viện, thế nhưng khi lên đến Thượng viện, sẽ cần 2/3 số phiếu tại đây để phế truất một tổng thống, một con số khiến khó đảng nào có thể tự quyết.

Cuộc bầu cử quan trọng nhất trong ký ức hiện đại

Theo CNBC, không có nhiều cuộc bầu cử giữa kỳ tại Mỹ được theo dõi sát sao đến vậy trên toàn cầu. Lý do rất rõ ràng: Ảnh hưởng của nó đến hình ảnh về sức hấp dẫn của nền dân chủ trên thế giới, một hé lộ về sức chịu đựng của chính quyền Tổng thống Trump và những chính sách đối ngoại của họ cũng như tác động đối với phong trào dân túy trên toàn thế giới.

Một tuần trước khi các thùng phiếu của Mỹ đóng cửa, người Brazil đã bầu lên một tổng thống cực hữu, nước Anh bế tắc trong cuộc đàm phán rời EU, nhưng họ vẫn sẽ rời đi còn sự nghi ngờ đối với các thể chế hợp tác đa phương và nền dân chủ kiểu Mỹ đang lớn dần ở mọi nơi.

Các đồng minh của Washington đang lo lắng mô hình Mỹ đang mất đi hấp dẫn trong lúc Trung Quốc thúc đẩy mô hình của họ cho các nước đang phát triển lẫn đã phát triển.

Stephen Hadley, cựu cố vấn an ninh quốc gia dưới thời cựu tổng thống George W. Bush, gần đây nói với CNN: “Nếu bạn lo lắng về mô hình của Mỹ, chúng ta có nhiều công cụ để vận hành một chính sách đối ngoại phục vụ cho lợi ích của chúng ta, mang lại thịnh vượng và an ninh cho người dân. Nhưng thương hiệu của chúng ta trên toàn cầu đang không ổn”.

“Có lý do để mọi người không xem thường tuyên bố của Trung Quốc rằng họ có một mô hình mới. Vì mô hình của chúng ta đang trông không tốt”, ông nói.

Cuộc bầu cử trở thành cuộc trưng cầu dân ý, không chỉ đối với tổng thống mà còn cả với thương hiệu chính trị dân túy mà ông là người đại diện. Dù phong trào dân túy đã tồn tại từ trước nhiệm kỳ của Tổng thống Trump, chiến thắng của ông là động lực mạnh mẽ, thúc đẩy cả những người ủng hộ dân túy trong nước lẫn nhiều nhà lãnh đạo trên toàn cầu.

Frederick Kempe, Chủ tịch và CEO tại Viện nghiên cứu Atlantic Council, nói rằng chính trị và môi trường xã hội Mỹ nói chung luôn có ảnh hưởng toàn cầu. Nếu phong trào #MeToo, khởi nguồn tại Mỹ, có khả năng lan tỏa toàn cầu thì chính sách “Nước Mỹ trên hết” của Tổng thống Trump cũng sẽ truyền cảm hứng cho những người lãnh đạo có tư duy tương tự ông. Tại châu Âu, những lãnh đạo đó thường tranh cử dựa trên chính sách chống nhập cư, còn tại Mỹ Latin là các kế hoạch chống tham nhũng. Và ở mọi người, các ứng viên dân túy đều nói đến “cảm hứng từ Trump”, bao gồm tổng thống cực hữu vừa đắc cử tại Brazil.

Người ta sẽ phải đợi đến đêm 6/11 tại Mỹ để biết liệu “làn sóng xanh màu tiền” và những gương mặt mới mẻ của đảng Dân chủ có mang lại cho họ quyền kiểm soát Đồi Capitol hay không, hay người dân vẫn sẽ chọn những chỉ số kinh tế đang rất tốt sau 2 năm đảng Cộng hòa hậu thuẫn cho những chính sách của Tổng thống Trump.

Không ai biết liệu người dân Mỹ sẽ chọn những gương mặt có phần đa sắc tộc hơn của đảng Dân chủ hay cảm thấy bị đe dọa bởi đoàn “caravan” di cư đang tiến sát biên giới Mỹ và chọn lấy ứng viên với chính sách nhập cư cứng rắn. Và nếu đảng Dân chủ chiến thắng ở ít nhất một viện của quốc hội Mỹ, nỗi lo sẽ chuyển từ việc đảng chiếm đa số hậu thuẫn và “nuông chiều” tổng thống quá mức sang việc không thể có tiếng nói chung giữa đảng kiểm soát quốc hội với tổng thống, trong bối cảnh sự chia rẽ tại Washington D.C. lẫn nước Mỹ ngày càng rộng ra.

“Tất cả chính trị đều là chuyện địa phương”, Tip O’Neill’s, cựu chủ tịch Hạ viện Mỹ và là một người Cộng hòa, từng nói. Nhưng những lá phiếu địa phương của người Mỹ sẽ vươn ra khỏi các bang mà họ bỏ phiếu, sẽ tiếp tục định hình nước Mỹ và có ảnh hưởng đến thế giới trong ít nhất 2 năm nữa.

          ESKIMOS OUSTER PROMPTS CALLS FOR PLAYOFF FORMAT CHANGE      Cache   Translate Page      
The fate of a fifth-place team was not top of mind when the CFL created its crossover rule more than two decades ago. It's something the league may want to consider for the future.

The rule gives a fourth-place team a crossover playoff spot when the club finishes with more points than the third-place team in the other division. It happened again this year when the B.C. Lions (9-9) finished with a better record than the 5-13 Montreal Alouettes, who were third in the East.

However, for the first time in the rule's history, the Edmonton Eskimos - who were at the bottom of the five-team West at 9-9 - missed the playoffs despite owning a better record than both the Alouettes and the East's second-place team, the 8-10 Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Unfortunately for the Eskimos, there is no provision for when the five teams in the West have better records than all but the first-place team in the East. As a result, Edmonton will be on the outside looking in when the post-season kicks off this weekend.

"We will continue to look at this issue and we're always open to new ideas,'' CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie said in an email. "But the East-West format has deep roots in our league going back decades and there is the potential to enhance it in the years ahead if the dream of a coast-to-coast CFL becomes reality and we add a 10th team in Halifax, providing us with balanced five-team divisions.''

This is the fourth time the crossover has been needed in the last five years.

Since the rule made its debut in 1996, there have been 10 seasons where the West has had five teams and this unique scenario has even been possible. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have had to move back to the East at times to fill vacancies when Ottawa hasn't had a team in the league.

It can be tough to ensure playoff balance in a nine-team league, especially in a year when one division is far superior to the other. The crossover rule was implemented to try to maximize meaningful and competitive games down the stretch and to reward the better teams with playoff spots. The crossover team never has advanced to the Grey Cup, though.

"I love the way they're doing it,'' TSN broadcaster and former CFL star Milt Stegall said from Atlanta. "I think the pros outweigh the cons, it adds some intrigue.''

The West Division, led by the 13-5 Calgary Stampeders, did not have a club with a losing record while the four-team East had just one squad - the 11-7 Ottawa Redblacks - finish above the .500 mark. Hamilton, Montreal and the 4-14 Toronto Argonauts were all well behind.

The Lions and Eskimos both finished with 18 points, but B.C. won the season series over Edmonton to secure the final West playoff spot.

Proponents of adding a fifth playoff team out of the West could argue the Redblacks should qualify out of the East and that all five West clubs should be rewarded for their records. In such a scenario, divisional winners could get regular first-round byes but the No. 2 team would host the No. 5 club in the West while the No. 3 team welcomes the fourth-place side.

Such a change would also eliminate a regular gripe about the crossover rule: that the fourth-place team has to travel for the division semifinal even if that club owns a better record than its opponent.

This year, B.C. has to make the cross-country jaunt to Hamilton to play outdoors at Tim Hortons Field rather than in the cosy confines of BC Place. If the Lions win, they likely would return home for a few days before making another long trip to Ontario for the East final against Ottawa.

Another option would be to get rid of the divisional playoff structure altogether and simply seed the top six teams at season's end. Seeds No. 3 through No. 6 could play off to set up league semifinals against the top two seeds and the winners would advance to the Grey Cup.

The NHL did something similar for a couple years by seeding the top 16 teams for first-round matchups before switching to a divisional playoff structure in 1982.

CFL purists often point to the history of the East versus West playdowns as a reason to eschew further change.

However, that tradition was essentially upended when the crossover was introduced. After all, the Vancouver-based Lions are two wins away from being crowned East Division champions.

A crossover rule explainer note on the CFL website points out that the format keeps the entire league competitive, rewards the top six teams with playoff berths and is sensitive to the East-West rivalry. But there is no mention of the scenario that the league finds itself in now, where a fifth-place team in the West has a better record than the second-place team in the East.

"I feel like we're as good as anybody, I really do,'' Eskimos head coach Jason Maas said at his season-ending availability. "I know our record doesn't necessarily prove that, except that there are two playoffs teams with the same record and a lesser record in the playoffs right now.''

South of the border, the NFL has had similar situations where underperforming teams were given playoff spots ahead of clubs with better records.

In 2010, the Seattle Seahawks won their division with a 7-9 record and hosted a playoff game against the 11-5 New Orleans Saints while two 10-6 teams missed the post-season. Four years later, the Carolina Panthers took their division crown with a 7-8-1 mark while the 10-6 Philadelphia Eagles missed the playoff cut.

The Canadian university football playoff structure is far from perfect too. A pair of 2-6 teams - Sherbrooke and McGill - actually made the Quebec conference playoffs before being blown out last weekend in the opening round.

Recent history suggests that regular-season records don't seem to matter that much once the playoffs begin. The Argonauts won the Grey Cup last fall after a 9-9 campaign while the Redblacks took the 2016 title after an 8-9-1 regular season.

This week's West semifinal pits the 12-6 Saskatchewan Roughriders against the visiting Blue Bombers (10-8). The East and West Finals are set for Nov. 18 and the Grey Cup goes Nov. 25 at Edmonton's Commonwealth Stadium.

          THE SPORTS DOCTOR'S WEEK 9 NFL PICKS      Cache   Translate Page      
Last week I was a consistent 11-3 (71-50) and 10-4 (61-60) against the spread.

Sunday Early

Detroit Lions (3-4) at Minnesota Vikings (4-3-1) 
Line: Vikings by 4.5

Vikings let last week get away from them and it won’t happen here. The Lions won’t be the same without Golden Tate anyway.

Dr. Football: Take the Vikings to win and cover.

Kansas City Chiefs (7-1) at Cleveland Browns (2-5-1) 
Line: Chiefs by 8.5

One only hopes Patrick Mahomes doesn’t get injured against this bunch of wanna be bounty hunters.

Dr. Football: Take the Chiefs to win and cover.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-4) at Carolina Panthers (5-2) 
Line: Panthers by 6.5

The Bucs can’t stop the pass, and Cam Newton is 4-0 at home. Won’t be close.

Dr. Football: Take the Panthers to win and cover.

Pittsburgh Steelers (4-2-1) at Baltimore Ravens (4-4) 
Line: Ravens by 3

Baltimore is a much better overall team at home, have the league’s top-rated defense, and they have already beaten the Steelers in Week 4 and have won the last four out of five times they have played them at home. They’ll head into their bye with a win.

Dr. Football: Take the Ravens to win and cover.

New York Jets (3-5) at Miami Dolphins (4-4) 
Line: Dolphins by 3

In Week 2, the Miami held the Jets to 12 points in New York. Since then, the Miami defense hasn’t played as well, but they’ll still stop them at home.

Dr. Football: Take the Dolphins to win and cover.

Atlanta Falcons (3-4) at Washington Redskins (5-2) 
Line: Redskins by 1.5

Like the Falcons themselves, I’ve given up; they’re not the team I thought they were. Washington isn’t either; they’re better than I ever thought they’d be. I’m drinking the Kool Aid.

Dr. Football: Take the Redskins to win and cover.

Chicago Bears (4-3) at Buffalo Bills (2-6) 
Line: Bears by 10

All Chicago has to do is score is a field goal and they should have this one put away…the Bills won’t even get on the board.

Dr. Football: Take the Bears to win and cover.

Sunday Late

Houston Texans (5-3) at Denver Broncos (3-5) 
Line: Broncos by 1

After losing their first three, Houston has won five in a row. Denver alwsys is a tough place to play, but they should keep rolling.

Dr. Football: Take the Texans to win and cover.

Los Angeles Chargers (5-2) at Seattle Seahawks (4-3) 
Line: Seahawks by 2

The Chargers have won four in a row, five of six and are coming off their bye. Seattle has won three of their past four and the loss was a close one against the Rams. This is the game of the week.

Dr. Football: Take the Seahawks to win and cover.

Los Angeles Rams (8-0) at New Orleans Saints (6-1) 
Line: Saints by 1.5

The Rams were put to the test last week against Green Bay, and will be again this week against a New Orleans team that have won their last six in a row. Rams will fall.

Dr. Football: Take the Saints to win and cover.

Sunday Night

Green Bay Packers (3-3-1) at New England Patriots (6-2)
Line: Patriots by 5.5

The Packers held their own in L.A. on Sunday and really lost the game themselves. New England looked like they were practicing new schemes in Buffalo prepping for this one. I like Green Bay’s fight, but they can’t finish.

Dr. Football: Take the Patriots to win but not cover.

Monday Night

Tennessee Titans (3-4) at Dallas Cowboys (3-4)
Line: Cowboys by 6.5

All of Dallas’ wins have been at home and the Titans have dropped three in a row. Both teams are coming off their bye and will be rested, but it won’t matter as Tennessee can’t score.

Dr. Football: Take the Cowboys to win and cover.

          ‘20 under 40’ Class of 2018—Michael A. DeVita III      Cache   Translate Page      
11/06/2018
Spencer Ives

Michael A. DeVita III, 37

General manager, Securadyne Systems

Andover, Mass.

Michael DeVita III initially started in the security industry as a summer job, which led into a greater interest, he said. He started in the industry with Surveillance Specialties 17 years ago, a company that was acquired by Securadyne Systems five years ago.

“After being exposed to the industry for a summer, I took a liking to the physical security world and began to gain an understanding of the technical side of things before making the move to inside sales support. I had the great fortune to work alongside my father (Mike DeVita Jr) in a support role where I learned the nuances of the business. While doing inside sales, I designed systems, built proposals, and eventually managed some key customers before starting my own sales career within Securadyne. I was given the opportunity to work very closely with CEO Carey Boethel during this time and when the opportunity arose I moved into the general manager’s role where I have been since 2013,” DeVita said.

DeVita is the general manager for the Boston and Portland, Maine, branch locations where he oversees sales and operations. Securadyne Systems is an integrator with 17 branches across the United States, servicing enterprise class clients throughout. The company has “regional hubs” in Boston, Atlanta and Dallas, DeVita explained.

When asked what he likes best about being in the security industry, DeVita said, “Creating value for my clients. Security integration is more than just installing cameras and readers. With each interaction, you get the opportunity to solve for the underlying need and look at a holistic approach that sometimes includes technology as well as operational or procedural recommendations. You build relationships and trust with clients based on the long-term approach rather than the singular project.”


          These Governors’ Races Can Turn the Tide      Cache   Translate Page      

From left to right: Paulette Jordan, Andrew Gillum, and Stacey Abrams

Most political pundits and insiders are declaring that today’s midterm elections are one of the most important of our lifetimes. As former President Barack Obama explained on Twitter, the character of our country is on the ballot. While national races definitely deserve your attention, the outcomes of down-ballot races for school boards, courts, and other local positions will shift individual communities. That’s one of the reasons we’re highlighting seven of the 36 governor’s races happening today.

Governors manage states, so they can determine everything from how public schools are funded to the expansion of Medicaid to working-class citizens to how Congressional maps will be drawn after the 2020 census. Every state deserves a governor invested in the people, and we hope the winners of these races do exactly that.

Paulette Jordan (D) vs. Brad Little (R) in Idaho

If State Representative Paulette Jordan defeats Lieutenant Governor Brad Little, she’ll become the first Democrat to win the governorship since Cecil Andrus retired in 1999. She’d also become Idaho’s first woman governor and America’s first Native American governor. It’s a tall order for Jordan since Trump won the state by a 32-point margin in 2016, but, as the New York Times points out, she’s part of a wave of Democratic candidates in the West who “can help keep the party credible and energized.”

Laura Kelly (D) vs. Kris Kobach (R) vs. Greg Orman (I) in Kansas

From left to right: Kris Kobach and Laura Kelly Charlie Riedel/Associated Press and Thad Allton/AP, File)

Kansas’ Secretary of State Kris Kobach is overseeing his own election—and he’s been passing laws that are designed to decrease voter turnout. Kobach is the architect of the state’s 2011 voter ID law, which decreased voter turnout by 2 percent in 2012, and has resulted in more than 1,200 ballots being rejected. Despite his best efforts, Kobach might still lose the governor’s race to State Senator Laura Kelly. Though Republicans outnumber Democrats by at least 14 percent in the state, a recent Fort Hays State University survey found that 49 percent of Kansans disapprove of Kobach compared to 17 percent disapproval for Kelly. A lot is at stake in this race: The winner will determine if the state expands Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, which would benefit approximately 152,000 adults.

Stacey Abrams (D) vs. Brian Kemp (R) in Georgia

All eyes have been on Georgia’s governor’s race as Secretary of State Brian Kemp has used the power of his office to purge voter rolls and leave 53,000 voter registration applications in limbo. While the courts have stepped in to halt some of Kemp’s attempts to suppress the vote, his office is still throwing curveballs. Abrams, who would become America’s first Black woman governor, is fighting to the end though. Oprah Winfrey, Barack Obama, and other heavy-hitters have descended on the state in support of Abrams, and polls indicate that she’s neck-in-neck with Kemp in a state that went to Donald Trump by five points. Education has been central to Abrams’s platform, and if she wins, she plans to invest in early childcare, public schools, and needs-based scholarships for higher education. Kemp, meanwhile, supports school choice, and would increase funding for charter schools.

I’m simply saying the racists believe he’s a racist.” It was the perfect rebuke to an opponent who has spoken at conferences hosted by an Islamophobic political activists and hasn’t denounced the white-supremacist group that’s making racist robocalls against Gillum. While Gillum has a significant lead over DeSantis in the polls, he’s still encouraging voters to #BringItHome by going to the polls and bringing their friends and relatives with them. If Gillum becomes Florida’s first Black governor, he will fight for gun-control measures, including banning assault weapons and prohibiting those who’ve been convicted of domestic violence from owning guns; push for Medicare for All; and restore voting rights for convicted felons.

Bill Schuette (R) vs. Gretchen Whitmer (D) in Michigan

It has been eight years since Democrats have had any power in Michigan—but that might change today. Whitmer, who has served in the state’s House of Representatives and Senate, was leading Attorney General Bill Schuette by 12 percentage points in a recent Detroit News poll. If Whitmer wins, she plans to stop the expansion of charter schools and invest in universal pre-kindergarten, while Schuette said he’d support a Medicaid work requirement that would require recipients to either work, look for work, attend training, or volunteer for at least 80 hours per month. The winner of this race will also determine if new congressional districts are drawn by legislators or an independent commission.

Tony Evers (D) vs. Scott Walker (R) in Wisconsin

Who can forget Scott Walker, the Republican governor who faced a recall election after he tried to end collective bargaining for public employees? Though he narrowly survived the recall, the stench of it still lingers, and may cost Walker the governorship. Several polls show that Walker is in a statistical tie with Wisconsin’s Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers. If Walker wins, he vows to protect people with pre-existing conditions from insurance hikes, while Evers wants to pour $1.7 billion into the state’s public-school system.

Janet Mill (D) vs. Shawn Moody (R) in Maine

Shawn Moody and Janet Mill debating (Troy R. Bennett/Bangor Daily News)

Maine’s government has been split since Democrats gained control over the House of Representatives and the State Senate in 2012. Now, as Republican Governor Paul LePage bids adieu, Attorney General Janet Mill is squaring off against businessman Shawn Moody. Hillary Clinton won Maine by three percentage points in 2016, and it seems that Mill is capitalizing on that momentum: A recent Emerson College Poll of 900 registered Maine voters shows Mill leading Moody by eight points. It doesn’t help that Jill Hayward, a former member of a management team at one of Moody’s automobile repair stores, has come forward about him discriminating against her while she was pregnant. (The case was settled in 2006, and Moody paid Hayward $20,000). The victor of this race will have the power to veto the new congressional maps that the state legislature will draw after the 2020 census.

En ny, kostbar undersøgelseskommission er ved at undersøge, hvorfor myndighederne ikke satte en stopper for tyveriet af over 12,7 milliarder kroner i refusion af udbytteskat. Men den nye kommission om SKAT risikerer at ende i samme situation som Tibet-kommissionen, den viste sig ikke at have fået adgang til alle relevante dokumenter og derfor ikke kom til bunds i sagen. Den nye kommission har nemlig bedt Skatteministeriet om selv at udvælge de sagsmapper med bevismateriale, som kommissionen skal bruge til at undersøge ministeriets og ministerens ansvar i sagen. Efter to tilfælde af chefer i forsvaret, der kan have hjulpet kærester og ægtefæller til uddannelse, forfremmelse og gode stillinger, kan net-mediet OLFI i dag fortælle om et tredje tilfælde: det drejer sig om finansdirektøren hos Værnsfælles Forsvarskommando i Karup.

          How Atlanta Has Changed Since Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms Was Elected [EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]      Cache   Translate Page      
Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms last year this time was in the race of her life.
          These Voters Had to Wait for Hours: “It Felt Like a Type of Disenfranchisement”      Cache   Translate Page      

Melanie Taylor arrived at her polling place in a Charleston, South Carolina, church at 7:30 a.m., only to find more than 100 people in line ahead of her. Some of them had already been waiting since 6:15. The voting site was using a computerized login for the first time, and the system was down.

After 45 minutes, with the line still out the door, Taylor had to give up and leave for work. (She leads a social work program.) She’s planning to try again later and has been monitoring the wait times through a neighborhood Facebook group. The news was not encouraging.

“It felt like a type of disenfranchisement, even though there wasn’t any violation of voting rights,” Taylor said. “The wait has been all day three hours or more, which is ridiculous.”

Across the country, Americans like Taylor have had their enthusiasm to vote tested by problems at polling places. There have been long lines owing to surging turnout, a shortage of voting machines, a shortage of ballots or computer malfunctions. Some voters said they stuck it out for as long as five hours.

But not everyone has five hours. An estimated 500,000 eligible voters didn’t cast a ballot in 2012 because of polling place problems such as long lines, according to the Voting and Registration Supplement of the Current Population Survey. The longer the lines, the more likely people are to give up, one study found, especially in areas with more minority voters. There isn’t good data on what happens to people who leave the line, even if they intend to try again later, according to Charles Stewart, a political science professor at MIT who studies elections.

There’s only a bit more research on the impact of long lines. Voters who have to wait may be less likely to vote in future elections, according to research by Stephen Pettigrew of the University of Pennsylvania. And survey results show people who waited in long lines were less confident that their votes counted. “There’s a bigger hit to confidence than to turnout,” Stewart said.

Sometimes the impediments don’t feel innocent. Brian Wisner showed up at his polling place in Wheaton, Illinois, at dawn, excited to cast his ballot for the Democratic challenger in a toss-up congressional race. Voting was supposed to open at 6 a.m., but it couldn’t start without an election judge from the Republican Party. By the time the Republican judge arrived, at close to 7, Wisner had to leave for work, unable to cast his ballot. “I didn’t have time to vote because I wouldn’t wait it out,” he said. He said he’s planning to return in the afternoon.

The county Republican Party didn’t answer requests for comment. The DuPage County Election Commission said it would hold the affected site open until 7:30 p.m.

“I did hear some people left and didn’t get the opportunity to vote, which is very problematic out here in DuPage County,” said Bob Peickert, the chairman of the local Democratic Party. “It has been nothing but chaos out here since 6 o’clock.”

Some hassles are inevitable with more than 8,000 jurisdictions organizing elections today, especially with higher-than-usual midterm turnout. In Indiana, problems with electronic poll books delayed voting in Johnson County, and Monroe County ran out of ballots, according to local news reports. In Chesterfield County, Virginia, the sole voting machine at a poll site needed to be repaired, and the parking lot was full because the school where the voting occurred had a parent-teacher day, according to Jim Groves, a volunteer. “I saw dozens of people leave,” Groves said. “It’s a mess.”

Lucinda Walters said she was unable to vote in greater Phoenix before work this morning because both of the voting machines weren’t working and her precinct had run out of paper ballots. When she tried again after work, she heard her polling place still didn’t have enough ballots, so she planned to go to another location, which might mean casting a provisional ballot. “Determined to vote,” she said in a text message. “I am a white suburban woman/independent voter that the strategists keep saying will be key to this election.”

Ann Harrison has voted at the First Presbyterian Church in Midtown Atlanta since 1982 and has never had to wait longer than 15 minutes. But today she waited two hours and would have had to wait even longer if poll workers hadn’t waved her ahead to a handicap-accessible booth since she’s 85 years old. The polling place only has three booths, down from a typical six or eight, Harrison said. She counted 85 people in line. “It doesn’t make any sense,” she said.

In 2012, the average voter waited 14 minutes and 2 seconds. One in 10 voters had to wait more than 30 minutes. The 2014 Presidential Commission on Election Administration said no one should have to wait more than 30 minutes.

Lines average twice as long in predominantly minority precincts, according to Pettigrew’s research. He found minorities are three times as likely to wait longer than 30 minutes and six times as likely to wait more than an hour.

C.J. Ogbuehi has voted at the same location in central Atlanta for six or seven years and never had to wait longer than 15 minutes. But today it took him two hours. The site had the usual number of voting machines (10), but Ogbuehi spoke with many other people in line who were transferred from other polling places. “It was chaotic,” he said. “This is exactly what you would expect when close that many location and provide no extra resources. I don’t know if it was designed to be voter suppression, but it smells like it.”

In Chicago, Eric Hellige waited 40 minutes to vote, but when he got to the front of the line, the poll workers said they had run out of one of the ballot’s two pages. He could either wait for refills or come back later. “People were frustrated and annoyed that they had to wait that long just to find out they could not vote,” Hellige said. “I had the luxury of coming back later.”

A few hours later, he sent a text message with an update: “Voted successfully!”


          Georgia Voters Face Hourslong Waits as State Scrambles to Accommodate Turnout      Cache   Translate Page      

Poll workers in Georgia appear to have been unprepared for the waves of voters who turned out on Tuesday. Officials were scrambling to bring additional equipment to the polls and to field calls from frustrated voters forced to wait in line for hours across the state. Meanwhile, some who called county officials got busy signals or reached voicemail boxes for election offices that were full.

“We are very fortunate that Georgia has robust early voting, because without that we can only imagine how hard the problems would be today,” said David Becker, the executive director of the Center for Election Innovation & Research.

Voter Linda Marshall said she spent two hours trying to vote at the Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta. Marshall said she registered to vote after moving to Atlanta, but the manager at the polling place said she wasn’t in the system. He refused to give her a provisional ballot, and the phone numbers he told her to call were disconnected. Fulton County did not respond to a request for comment about Marshall’s experience.

After leaving, Marshall called a legal aid, and lawyers referred her to a Georgia law saying she’s entitled to a provisional ballot. She said she hasn’t decided if she’ll try going back. “What they’re doing at my polling station is outside of the statutes — it’s illegal,” said Marshall, 65. “I haven’t had to work so hard to vote ever. It was just a runaround, and I’ve never experienced anything like this.”

Ten miles south, hundreds of voters at Pittman Park Recreation Center faced wait times nearly three hours long. At noon, the line snaked out of the multipurpose room and doubled back on itself in a narrow hallway. Despite the line, voters seemed determined to stay put and the atmosphere seemed jovial. Organizers with the National Domestic Workers Alliance handed out Cheez-its, fruit snacks and Little Caesars Pizza to waiting voters, and voters chatted with each other as they waited.

The center serves mostly black neighborhoods in Southwest Atlanta, and multiple people told ProPublica they felt a sense of obligation to stay in line — their parents and grandparents had been unable to vote, and they were excited to cast a ballot for the first black woman to be a major party nominee for governor in the United States.

“I wanted this experience.” said Tyrone Hodges, who said he’d been in line for more than two hours. He said the wait was inconvenient but gave him hope that the Democratic nominee, Stacey Abrams, could win. “When I see it packed like this, you know she’s got a shot.”

Sandra Thomas, 70, was similarly enthusiastic. “If I have to be here til tomorrow, I’m gonna vote,” she said.

The center generally serves fewer voters than were seen this morning, but the county merged a nearby polling location with Pittman and didn’t allocate any additional polling machines. Voters were casting ballots on only three machines until the county dispatched five more late in the morning, and those in line said it started to move more quickly after that.

Trey Greyson, the former Republican secretary of state for Kentucky, said that election administrators have to balance “spending extra money on equipment when experience tells they won’t be needed,” and that turnout across the country has taken administrators by surprise. Additionally, the use of electronic voting machines makes states less nimble, he said. “You can print more paper ballots, but you can’t produce more machines immediately,” he said, explaining the long delays voters are facing as the county works to produce more equipment.

Tim Harper is a policy analyst with the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Democracy Project, who conducted research into lines using data from the 2016 elections. Harper said polling locations unable to clear long lines within two hours of the polls opening are likely to face long lines for the rest of the day unless the counties allocate additional resources.

“Without adding additional resources to the polls — like pollbooks, or check-in clerks, or voting stations — that line is not going to go anywhere,” he said.

Other counties are similarly having to scramble as high turnout and faulty equipment has forced voters to wait in line for hours.

Dekalb County had to replace a surge protector that was affecting the voting machines at Jolly Elementary in Clarkston, Georgia, a city northeast of Atlanta. County officials also sent two replacement machines to the site. Prior to the repairs, multiple voters reported wait times up to two hours.

In Gwinnett County, voters waited nearly five hours to vote after electronic poll books, which verify voter registration at the polls, were down at Annistown Elementary School. Voters cast provisional ballots, though the county eventually fixed the problem.

Kelvin Carroll arrived at 7 a.m., and the line didn’t move until after 11. “A lot of people left. I posted on Facebook almost every hour telling people not to give up,” he said. “We were going to vote regardless. A lot of people fought and died for your right to vote, so don’t give it up.”

The Abrams campaign held a news conference midday after the technical difficulties. Local candidates told voters that issues with voting machines had been solved, and they should stay in line. The secretary of state’s office told ProPublica the location would extend voting for 25 minutes at the location.

And in Henry County, the address of a polling place sent voters to a middle school. By the time Faith Foufa arrived at 6:20 a.m., she was the seventh person in line. After waiting for 40 minutes for the doors to open — with the line growing to around 50 people — nothing happened. Eventually, a woman came out of the school and told the line that their polling place was elsewhere, according to Foufa. “People stormed off,” she said. “It was absolutely ridiculous.”

The woman from the school gave imprecise directions to the polling location, so Foufa drove around for 20 minutes trying to find it. The voting was actually taking place at a gym behind the school, accessible from a different road. Tina Lunsford, the county election director, said there are now signs directing people to the right location and her office will try to amend the state’s website.

 photo reginaecartermovie.png

Reginae Carter and Keshia Knight Pulliam are coming to LIFETIME. Anika Noni Rose is ready to box it out in the ring, a sneak peek at season 2 of "Grown-ish" just dropped and Tinashe is joining "Rent." Everything inside...

Reginae Carter is looking to make her own lane and make a name for herself outside of just being Lil Wayne & Toya Wright's daughter.

On "Friends & Family Hustle," Reginae broke the news to her mother that she was dropping out of college to pursue an acting career. Chile...

As expected, Toya wasn't happy about it. But, Reginae feels like she's grown and she needs to live for her.

Well, things are already looking up for her. According to Deadline, Reginae is set to star in the LIFETIME original movie, Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta, contemporary take on Jane Austen’s early 19th century classic, following the 2005 adaptation film, Pride and Prejudice.

Here's a quick synopsis of the film and other actors starring in it:

Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta features an African-American cast led by Reginald VelJohnson as Reverend Bennet, a pastor of a prominent Southern Baptist church, and his wife, Mrs. Bennet (Jackée Harry), author of a self-help book on how to find the perfect husband. Needless to say, Mrs. Bennet is less than thrilled that all five of their daughters — Lizzie (Tiffany Hines), Jane (Raney Branch), Mary (Brittney Level), Lydia (Reginae Carter) and Kitty (Alexia Bailey) — are still single. When the very eligible Will Darcy (Juan Antonio) arrives in town, Mrs. Bennet sets her sights on the handsome bachelor for daughter Lizzie, leading to a comedic modern-day take on themes familiar to fans of the novel.

Other castmates include Keshia Knight Pulliam, Kellee Stewart, and Victoria RowellRhonda Baraka will helm the film from a script by Tracy McMillan. The film will be produced by Big Dreams Entertainment and Swirl Films, with Leslie Greif, Naomi Despres and Tracy McMillan serving as executive producers.

Sounds like something we would watch. Good luck Reginae on your acting debut!

Anika Noni Rose is gearing up to whoop some ***.

The YBF actress has landed the lead in TNT's drama pilot, "Beast Mode." And get this...

It's inspired by living boxing trainer legend Ann Wolfe. It's a story about a strong mother who pulls herself and her two daughters from the gutta to make a name for herself.

Deadline has the details:

Pulling herself and her two daughters up from poverty, abuse, homelessness, and criminality, Marsha Blackstone (Rose) reached the pinnacle of boxing as a fighter and has become equally as successful a trainer known for unconventional methods and a fiercely combative style. Driven by the belief that any step backward is a slippery slope to her former life, when the boxer Marsha trained to a world title fires her, this complex and inspiring woman is determined to find a new fighter to eclipse the one she lost, but her emotional baggage and militant style could be her undoing in her professional and personal life, especially with her two grown daughters, and a new baby on the way.

"Beast Mode" is the working title as of now. Tina Mabry is set to direct the pilot. David Schneiderman will write it and he'll also produce it alongside Ann Wolfe and MACRO in association with Studio T.

 

Speaking of television...

Before season 2 of "Grown-ish" premieres in January, fans get the first sneak peek at what the new season will bring.

Zoey Johnson (Yara Shahidi) is now a sophomore and viewers will get to see what life is like after summer break. Especially, her love life, since she decided Luca (played by Luka Sabbat) is the one she wants to be with. In the clip, Zoey appears to be ready to kick off her sophomore year with positivity and on the right foot and she's optimistic about her relationship with Luca.

At the end, there's a quick PSA to remind folks to get out and vote during the midterm elections. Check it above.

Also coming to television...

Tinashe is ready to flex her singing and dancing skills for FOX's live rendition of RENT.

The "2 On" singer who was robbed on "DWTS" will be joined by Kiersey Clemons (Dope), singer/actor Mario (Empire), Vanessa Hudgens (Grease Live), Valentina (RuPaul's Drag Race), Brandon Victor Dixon (Jesus Christ Superstar Live), Jordan Fisher (Grease Live), and Brennin Hunt (Walking With Herb. 

THR reports:

Based on Larson's Tony-winning musical, Rent is a rock musical loosely based on La Boheme that tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists struggling to survive and create a life in New York's East Village in the days of the Bohemian Alphabet City and under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. Tinashe will portray Mimi Marquez, a dancer who struggles with addiction. Mario will take on the role of Benjamin Coffin III, Mark and Roger’s former roommate-turned-landlord, who is after their rent.

Hudgens will play Maureen Johnson, an outgoing performance artist who is not afraid to take on the establishment. Clemons will play Joanne Jefferson, Maureen's girlfriend and an Ivy League-educated lawyer.

Dixon is set as Tom Collins, a computer scientist who returns to New York after being expelled from MIT. Valentina will play Angel Dumont Schunard, a young drag queen and street percussionist who embraces life and lives it to its fullest.

Fisher is the central character of Mark Cohen, an aspiring filmmaker, who serves as the show’s narrator, while filming the lives of his friends. Hunt plays Roger Davis, a struggling musician and Mark’s roommate and best friend.

This sounds like the makings of a good live production. RENT is scheduled to air January 27th on FOX. Will you be tuning in?

          Nächster Rekord! Chiefs-Star Mahomes brilliert       Cache   Translate Page      

Er liefert eine starke Performance nach der anderen ab, so auch an diesem NFL-Spieltag. 

In Woche neun durfte sich der Quarterback der Kansas City Chiefs, Patrick Mahomes, über einen neuen NFL-Rekord freuen. Noch nie in den letzten 68 Jahren ist ein Spielmacher so gut in die Saison gestartet wie der 23-Jährige. Beim 37:21-Sieg gegen die Cleveland Browns warf Mahomes drei Touchdown-Pässe, zwei davon auf Tight End Travis Kelce. (SERVICE: NFL-LIVESCORES und die NFL LIVE bei DAZN)

In seiner zweiten Saison hat Mahomes in neun Spielen bereits 29 Touchdown-Pässe erfolgreich angebracht. Zudem darf er sich bereits jetzt über 3.185 Yards freuen, die meisten aller Quarterbacks in den ersten zehn Saisonspielen seit 1950. In jedem der letzten acht Spiele hat er mehr als 300 Yards auf das Scoreboard gebracht. 

Hunt gelingen drei Touchdowns

Und auch seine Offense steht Mahomes in nichts nach. Zu den zwei Touchdowns von Kelce fügte Running Back Kareem Hunt drei weitere hinzu. Cleveland hatte gegen die starke Chiefs-Offensive keine Chance.

ANZEIGE: Jetzt aktuelle NFL-Trikots sichern - hier geht es zum Shop

Der Rookie-Quarterback der Browns, Baker Mayfield, durfte sich zwar über zwei Touchdown-Pässe freuen, musste wie sein Gegenüber aber auch eine Interception hinnehmen. 

Kansas City steht mit einer Bilanz von 8:1 unangefochten an der Tabellenspitze der AFC West, die Browns sind in der AFC North mit zwei Siegen und sechs Niederlagen auf dem letzten Platz zu finden. 

Peterman mit schlechter Leistung

Genau wie für die Browns gab es auch für die von Niederlagen geplagten Buffalo Bills einmal mehr nichts zu lachen. Gegen die Chicago Bears verlor das Team von Spielmacher Nathan Peterman mit 9:41. Peterman war es auch, der mit katastrophalen Stats einmal mehr negativ auf sich aufmerksam machte. 

ANZEIGE: Die NFL bei DAZN. Jetzt kostenlosen Testmonat sichern!

Zwar lief der 24-Jährige einmal mit dem Ball erfolgreich in die Endzone, dafür verursachte er aber auch drei Interceptions. Kurios dabei: Zur Halbzeit hatte Peterman keinen Touchdown, dafür aber bereits zwei Interceptions auf dem Konto. Zudem hatte er 12 von 19 Pässen für 75 Yards an den Mann gebracht. Diese Werte genügten, um sein Passer Rating von 31,4 auf 31,5 zu erhöhen.

Sein Gegenüber Mitchell Trubisky erwischte ebenfalls nicht seinen besten Tag. Dem jungen Quarterback gelang nur ein Touchdown-Pass auf Trey Burton. Zwei weitere Touchdowns erlief Running Back Jordan Howard. Zudem waren die Bears jeweils mit einem Touchdown nach einem Fumble und einem nach einer Peterman-Interception erfolgreich.

Fitzpatrick zaubert bei Niederlage

Ein richtiges Punkte-Festival durften die Fans bei der Partie zwischen den Carolina Panthers und den Tampa Bay Buccaneers bewundern. Mit 42:28 besiegte die Franchise von Quarterback Cam Newton die Bucs - der Spielmacher der Panthers durfte sich dabei über zwei Touchdowns freuen.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, der erneut anstelle von Jameis Winston für die Bucs auflief, überragte erneut mit seiner Leistung. Vier Touchdown-Pässe zauberte "Fitzmagic" auf das Feld, allerdings warf er auch zwei Pässe in die Hände seines Gegners.

Die Bucs liegen in der NFC South mit einer Bilanz von 3:5 auf dem letzten Platz, die Panthers stehen in der NFC South nur knapp hinter den Saints auf Rang zwei.

Jones mit erstem Touchdown der Saison

Durchaus überraschend verlief das Spiel zwischen den Washington Redskins und den Atlanta Falcons. Mit 14:38 verloren die Redskins im eigenen Stadion und vor allem ein Spieler der Falcons war nach dem Spiel überglücklich. Wide Receiver Julio Jones durfte sich nach einer endlos langen Zeit des Wartens zum ersten Mal in dieser Saison über einen Touchdown freuen. 

Ende des letzten Viertels fing der 29-Jährige einen 35-Yard-Touchdown-Pass von Matt Ryan. Der Spielmacher der Falcons erwischte in Washington ohnehin einen wahren Sahnetag. Vier seiner Pässe fanden erfolgreich den Weg in die Endzone.

Katastrophen-Abend für Darnold

Einen richtig üblen Abend erlebte der Quarterback der New York Jets. Bei der 6:13-Niederlage gegen die Miami Dolphins warf Sam Darnold nicht einen einzigen Touchdown, dafür aber ganze vier Interceptions.

Sein Gegenüber Brock Osweiler hatte weder das eine, noch das andere.

Alle Ergebnisse im Überblick:

Sonntag, 4. November:

Buffalo Bills - Chicago Bears 9:41

          Nov 27, 2018: How We Labor: Building a New Social Contract for Jobs and Working People - A HENRY COHEN LECTURE at The Auditorium, Room A106, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall      Cache   Translate Page      

Should we have a public option for jobs? How can we build workplace democracy? Should workers run their own enforcement systems? Can our economy offer workers more options through coops and other alternative job models? These themes and more will be explored in a conversation on how to transform labor featuring Pablo Benson-Silva of the New York City Network of Worker Cooperatives; Darrick Hamilton, director of the doctoral program in public and urban policy, and professor of economics and urban policy at The Milano School of Policy, Management, and Environment and the Department of Economics, The New School; and Cathy Albisa, executive director of National Economic and Social Rights Initiative. Introduction by Melanie Hart, Director, Social Justice Iniatives at The New School.

This is a joint New School Henry Cohen lecture series and National Economic and Social Rights Initiative Michael Ratner Roundtable series event and part of a larger conversation being advanced through the A New Social Contract Project. The project seeks to build a collective new understanding of ourselves as a country in order to face the challenges revealed as the fragile veneer of our democracy has been pulled back. It also focuses on community and social movement driven solutions to our deepest problems and argues that the many transformative solutions already being practiced at a smaller scale provide the scaffolding for a new social and economic model that can define our future. You can download and read the New Social Contract at www.nesri.org/initiatives/ansc.

He is also a partner at Movement Netlab, a cooperatively governed think-do-learn tank on network social movements.

He has authored numerous scholarly articles on socioeconomic stratification in education, marriage, wealth, homeownership, health (including mental health), and labor market outcomes.

He has written for, among others, Atlanta Journal Constitution The American Prospect, Axios, the Christian Science Monitor, Dissent Magazine, Jacobin Magazine, the New York Times, theGrio, the Huffington Post, the Washington Monthly, the Washington Post, and Yes! Magazine.

          Exit Kurt Taylor      Cache   Translate Page      
Exit Kurt Taylor Brian November 6th, 2018 at 7:15 PM
[Patrick Barron]

A third transfer, this one more understandable:

ANN ARBOR -- The Michigan football team will be down one running back for the remainder of the season.

Reserve back Kurt Taylor recently decided to leave the program and pursue a transfer, team spokesman Dave Ablauf confirmed to MLive on Tuesday.

Taylor had fallen behind at least Christian Turner in the class after him—never a good sign—and seen Tru Wilson suck up all the designated pass blocker snaps. That latter was Taylor's most promising path to the field and Wilson would have likely blocked him for another two years.

Taylor's departure leaves Michigan with 19 currently open slots in their 2019 recruiting class, a number certain to grow by a significant number. Near as I can figure there are ~8 players likely to head for the NFL draft early or graduate and be offered a firm handshake. That would put Michigan at 27, and there will probably be another few playing time transfers and/or injury retirements. Michigan could accommodate a class of 28-30; they've got 24 commits right now.

I has a sad...  Kurt was one of the early commits and stayed through all of the higher rated guys coming and going.  Had his mind set on being a TB and great teammate.  He transferred to a bigger HS in Atlanta to prove himself.  And he made some memorable tweets and memes before arriving.  Sad it didn't work out for him, but I really hope he enjoyed the ride.  I also hope he's staying with the team until the seasons over.

I want the best of luck for him wherever he goes!

I’ll pull for him no matter where he goes. Seems like a great kid. Too bad it didn’t pan out for him here. I know he really wanted it! Good luck to him

Can someone explain the timing of this? It seems like he could have stayed an extra month and possibly been part of a Big 10 championship team. I understand it sucks not playing, but still, that seems like something I would want to experience.

A high-character guy who will transfer to a minor school, get some carries and a degree. Good luck to him.
