If you’re a local music fan, you’ve probably witnessed Elly Swope performing with some of Portland’s best bands: Genders, Sunbathe, Loveboys, Kelli Schaefer, Deathlist, and her own solo project, Focus! Focus! But this year Swope ditched that moniker and began to allow the magic of her vulnerable, skewed pop songs to reflect upon herself directly, without the buffer of a pseudonym.

“Running your own solo project is obviously very exhausting when you’re doing your own booking, your own album art, recording everything, and trying to do press and all that on your own,” Swope explains over the phone from a Sunbathe tour stop in Boston. “I’d just gone through some life changes that made me feel like I needed to be the side person for a while, and to just remember that I love playing music, or else I might not go on. Earlier this year, I just felt ready again.”

The result is her stunning debut EP, It Feels the Same Everytime, which is being released this week by NYC tape label Rue Defense. Evidence of Swope’s masterful songwriting can be found throughout the EP, but it’s even more impressive given the fact that, save for guest performers on two tracks, Swope played every instrument herself during the recording process at Destination: Universe, where she works when she’s not on the road.

On murky tracks like “6.8,” crushing imagery finds a stylistically restrained Swope whispering lines like, “I hold my character so well when I feel it coming on/I know you couldn’t tell,” until the song shapeshifts into a riotous fuzz-rock rallying cry: “Don’t tell me how I should feel about it/Don’t act like you never let me down.” The innate catchiness of Swope’s poetic, anti-pop confessionals can camouflage the raw emotional expressions lurking beneath the surface, especially on the anthemic “Idea,” which hints at the aftermath of a hurtful breakup.

“Sometimes when I have a darker song like that or a more emotional song, and I’m writing it after the fact, it feels somewhat hopeful or powerful to play it and write about that kind of thing after I’ve already processed what happened and I feel like I’ve gained my footing again,” Swope says. “Anytime I write a song that’s just completely dark and hits you over the head with that, I feel like I’m faking it.”

Rest assured, there’s no fakery afoot on It Feels the Same Everytime—Swope’s earnestness will demand your undivided attention.

“I ultimately just don’t want to feel like I’m pretending or that I’m trying to do something,” she explains. “I just want it to feel right.”

We all want Trump and his servile, enabling Republicans to lose control of Congress. But many of us feel the Democrats are nothing more than the lesser evil, with a leadership that pursues opportunism and careerism rather than the party's values and principles. How do we change that? One way is to elect as many members of Congress we can who are not beholden to the corrupt party leadership. For example, these are progressive candidates who won their primaries and who the DCCC and Nancy Pelosi have refused to support:
Randy Bryce (WI-01)
Ammar Campa-Najjar (CA-50)
Audrey Denney (CA-01)
Kara Eastman (NE-02)
Kendra Fershee (WV-01)
Jess King (PA-11)
Nate MuMurray (NY-27)
J.D. Scholten (IA-04)
Mike Siegel (TX-10)
Dayna Steele (TX-36)
James Thompson (KS-04)
Instead, the DCCC and Pelosi are spending tens of millions of dollars on New Dems and Blue Dogs from the Republican wing of the Democratic Party, consciously shifting the congressional caucus in a sharply rightward.corporate direction-- in the opposite direction the Democratic base wishes it to move.


Today we have to deal with an existential problem-- Trump and his GOP enablers. But we should concentrate on making sure the progressives running for Congress today have every chance possible to win. Think back to when you were in school or the military or at summer camp. Did you have any pals back then who like in Omaha? Can you call them and ask them to vote for Kara Eastman? Sunday Kara told her supporters that her race "is one of the most closely watched in the entire country. Everyone’s eyes are on this district, waiting to see what happens on election day. If we can win here, it’s proof that our common-sense progressive platform can work around the rest of the country as well. We have grown this small grassroots movement into something bigger than all of us. We are ready to make history and create meaningful change in our country. Your vote matters. This race will be incredibly close, and we need you to show up and be counted on election day. Make sure you have a plan to get to the polls on Tuesday, November 6th and make your voice heard. Your vote would be the best birthday gift I could get this year." And her win would be a gift for every progressive in America. Think again... maybe you have a cousin in Omaha? No? Perhaps an old chum you haven't talk to in years who lives in Gretna or La Vista or Papillion? Today, only phone calls can help, not checks; too late for that.



How about someone who lives in Racine or Kenosha or Janesville, Wisconsin? Those are the 3 biggest towns in Randy Bryce's district. A persuasive GOTV call to someone you know, is worth more than any financial contribution right now. Maybe someone who moved to Elkhorn or Burlington? Lake Geneva? Muskego? Or maybe the suburbs south of Milwaukee-- Oak Creek, Franklin, Greendale, Caldonia? This is going to be a close race. Every vote counts.

In western New York, there's a big space with lots of suburbs and small towns between Buffalo and Rochester. Anyone you know up there who you could talk to about Nate McMurray. Most people who hear that Chris Collins is an extreme Trumpist and that he was arrested for corruption charges and is out on bail, are very open to hearing reasons to vote for Nate McMurray.

Same in Escondido, Ramona, Lakeside, Santee and the other suburbs east and north of San Diego. And Temecula... and the eastern parts of El Cajon-- that's all Ammar Campa-Najjar's district, where the incumbent, Druncan Hunter, is also an extreme Trumpist out on bail after being arrested by the FBI.

And on the exact opposite end of California, up in the northeast... maybe you know someone with a phone who moved to Grass Valley? Oroville, Redding, Chico, Paradise, Yreka, Red Bluff? Someone living on a houseboat in Lake Shasta or Goose Lake? That's all part of CA-01, where Berniecrat Audrey Denney is making tremendous headway against Doug LaMalfa and can use every vote she can get.


Don't tell me you don't know anyone in Austin. Everyone does... just think. Mike Siegel's district includes lots of Austin neighborhoods-- The Triangle, Rosedale, Ridge Top, Coronado Hills, St Johns, Broadacres, Brentwood, Oakmont Heights, Balcones Park, Abercrombe, Skyview, Crestview, Allandale, Wooten, North Shoal Creek, Mesa Forest, Quail Hollow, Gracywoods, North Oaks, up into Pflugerville and then out towards Houston in towns like Bastrop, La Grange, Brenham, Sealy, Weimar, as well as towns like Tombatt, Cypress, Prairie View and Fairfield on the outskirts of Houston. Mike's race to replace the Trumpist incumbent-- who helped formulate the babies in cages policy-- is going to depend on getting people to come out to vote today in those Austin neighborhoods, Houston suburbs and everything in between. Know anyone there you could call?

And on the other side of Houston... maybe you know someone from a past life who went to work for NASA? Dayna Steele's race is going to be decided tonight by voters in Seabook, Deer Park, Channelview, Sheldon and Crosby on the outskirts of Houston-- as well as by folks living in La Porte, Baytown, Beach City and up in Lumberton, Liberty, Livingston, Jasper, Bon Wier (right on the Louisiana border), Kirbyville, and in the Beaumont suburbs like Vidor and Rose City.

Maybe you know people in Lancaster, Pennsylvania or up in Ephrata or Elizabethtown or down in Hanover in York County. Call them and persuade them to vote for Jess King.

Is it possible you know someone teaching at Iowa State in Ames? Steve King's district isn't 100% farmland. Anyone in your phonebook from Sioux City? Mason City? Forest City? Rockwell City? How about Fort Dodge or Pocahontas? For J.D. to win today, he's going to need votes from all those places. Think! Anyone? A sister's old boyfriend? The coach of your high school basketball team?

Maybe coach moved to Kansas, not Iowa. James Thomson's district is mostly Wichita and Sedgewick County but he's going to need whatever votes he can pick up in Eureka, Howard nd Sedan in the east, Kinsley, Greensburg, Goldwater in the west and towns like Kingman, Medicine Lodge and Winfield in between.

That leaves us with the toughest district we're trying to flip this cycle, WV-01 (PVI R+19), where Kendra Fershee is running a progressive campaign in a district where Bernie did incredibly well. It includes Wheeling, Parkersburg and Morgantown (West Virginia University's Evansdale campus). Maybe an old babysitter? I used to volunteer at a People for the American Way office and I met a young woman there who helped me figure out what I was doing. She lives in that district now. In fact... she's the candidate!




A friend of mine, Richard Foos, worked with his wife and Ted Lieu and another friend of ours, Jody Uttal, and me, to put on a fundraising event for Ammar Campa-Najjar and Randy Bryce. We raised them each some money but that didn't feel proactive enough for Richard. He wanted to do something way more visceral. So... he called a dozen friends, printed up some voter guides and called up Katie Hill's campaign manager and offered to stand outside a dozen polling places and hand out the guides. He's done it before-- and it works, especially well for down-ballot candidates and propositions on the ballot. I asked him to explain what it's like doing this kind of volunteer work. He told me he believes "that the most effective thing we can do today is to work at a polling place with a three fold plus purpose.
1) hand out voter guides for the congressional Dems (not as important for the congressional race, but very important for down ballot candidates, non-partisan candidates and propositions.
2) Catch any voter irregularities by ensuring all Dems successfully voted on the way out of the polls.
3) Check the voter roles which are posted inside the polling place every couple hours and tell headquarters who has not voted yet so that they can get their GOTV team to remind the ones who didn't vote to do so.
I am going to be doing it for Katie Hill’s campaign and if interested email jake@katiehillforcongress.com/ Otherwise call your local Dem office or congressional candidate’s campaign headquarters."

          Shryock Defends His All Iowa Points Modified Title By Just One Point      Cache   Translate Page      
One point made all the difference for Kelly Shryock as the veteran driver from Fertile captured his second straight and third overall All Iowa Points Modified championship in 2018. His first AIP title came in 1989 showing just how long he had been one of the top Modified drivers in the nation.

Eleven feature wins and thirty-four top five finishes racked up 120 points in the All Iowa Points 5-point scale system allowing Shryock to edge out Jesse Dennis by just one at the end of the season. Dennis had more feature wins with fourteen, but had four fewer top five finishes than the champion. Hinton's Jay Noteboom was close behind in third after taking fifteen feature wins in twenty-eight top five finishes. This solid season will move Noteboom to the top of the list when the cumulative points for the division from 2000 to 2018 is released during the holiday season.

Placing his focus on the Modified in 2018 Jeff Aikey had a strong finish including a win in the IMCA Super Nationals to rank fourth in the final standings. The 1984 All Iowa Points Sportsman champion and the 2003 Late Model champ, Aikey had nine wins in his Modified this season. Troy Cordes posted a solid fifth-place showing, early season point leader Bryce Garnhart was sixth and three-time champion Chris Abelson (2014-2016) filled out the top ten.

Looking for the "Newcomer of the Year", or the driver who has never had a top five finish in the Modifieds before is a bit of a search in this class as the first three on the list Shadren Turner (85th), Chad Clancy (109th) and Richard Spriggs (118th) are on the list for the first time due to regular racing returning to the Bethany Speedway in northwest Missouri this season. (And if you are wondering why that would matter to the "All Iowa Points" please read the Other States section here). Next in line is former Late Model driver Ben Nading in the 136th position on the list so you have to go all the way down to two drivers tied for 144th in the standings, Keegan Nordquist and Logan Anderson for someone who "moved up" from a support class to the Modifieds.

The final 2018 All Iowa Points standings will continue with the Stock Cars on Wednesday here on the Back Stretch.

          ‘Get Out!’: Screaming Election Judge in Texas Threatens to Call Cops on Black Voter      Cache   Translate Page      
"You are rude. You are not following the law,” Lila Guzman shouted.

An election judge in Texas was captured on video screaming at a black voter and threatening to call the police when the woman expressed confusion at where she was supposed to vote.

Austin’s KVUE reported that Williamson County election judge and supervisor Lila Guzman resigned from her position at a polling place in Round Rock, TX after the video was captured during early voting on Friday, Nov 2.

“Get out. Get out. Get out. You are rude. You are not following the law,” Guzman is heard yelling at the voter. “Go. Go.”

At another point in the incident, the judge told the voter that she was going to call the police. The voter reportedly left before authorities arrived.

Williamson County Elections Administrator Chris Davis admitted to KVUE that in spite of being “a very experienced supervisor and judge,” Guzman was in the wrong.

“Our supervisor loses her composure in the middle of this, and that’s not something that we ever train our poll workers, supervisors, election judges and clerks to do,” Davis said. “We always train them and advise them to maintain control of the situation politely and answer voters’ questions and give voters options so situations like these don’t escalate.”

The woman who recorded the video chose not to identify herself and told KVUE why she thought she needed to document the interaction.

“As soon as she started getting louder, I was like, ‘This is getting out of hand.’ So I began to record,” the voter said. “[Guzman] did tell her she couldn’t vote there, but she didn’t say where in Travis [County]. The lady did have an accent. She could’ve been new to the country. I don’t know, but she needed some help.”

The election judge said she didn’t resign because of the incident, but rather because she felt the Williamson County Board of Elections didn’t give her sufficient backup.

You can watch the bystander video and KVUE’s interview with Davis and the woman who recorded it below:

Whatever happened to 'vote your hopes and dreams'?


There will be a blue wave, unless there isn't.  The red firewall will break the azure tsunami, unless Trump's hate spew has punched suburban holes in it.  The US House flips (but maybe not), and the Senate stays in Mitch McConnell's terrapin-like appendages, except maybe for a systematic polling error, a la 2016.

No wonder Team Donkey is experiencing some cognitive dissonance.



Who, or what, gets the blame if the Ds can't get it done tomorrow?  Voter suppression, from Georgia to North Dakota to Texas college campuses like Prairie View A&M and Texas State?  Voting machines flipping straight-ticket votes (to Ted Cruz?)  There will still be plenty of finger-pointing at Russian hackers and Green candidates, I feel certain.  Even if some dropped out of their race and endorsed the Democrat.

[The old Catch-22: "Greens should run in state and local races and build up to presidential races" instead of playing spoiler (sic) every four years.  "Greens should drop out and endorse Democrats because this is the most important election of our lifetime".  You know, since the one two years ago.  That was their fault Democrats lost.  Blah blah.]

There may be some less nefarious, more legitimate reasons the election will be won -- or lost; for example, the strength of women voters.  Notable for the demographers, moderate Republican women who live in suburban America turning out to cast their ballots against Trump and the GOP.  No, wait; it's the youth vote.  That's it *snaps fingers*, the children are our future.  Either is better than blaming the Latinxs, after all.  We're all tired of hearing that.

Hold on a minute: this is a midterm election, and Texas Democrats who haven't elected one of theirs since, you know, Jim Hightower was Ag Commissioner always lose because they can't raise any money for consultants, advisers, pollsters, etc.  Except they did, a shitpot full of dough, in 2018 -- at least those running for Congress; not so much the statewides save Congressman SuperBeto, whose massive Bernie-like ATM machine reversed both the prevailing Texas narrative and the cash flow, doubling the take of Senator Serpent Covered in Vaseline.


The Cult of RFO'R aims for the upset tomorrow evening.  Rumor has it happening.


So as President Shitler is fond of saying: we'll see what happens.  I'm ready it to be over; how about you?  Here's your roundup of lefty blog posts and news from the final week before E-Day.

==================

One unplumbed premise that the midterms might reveal is whether the strength of the Lone Star grassroots has shifted from one major party to the other, either because of 'outsiders' becoming 'insiders' or because there needs to be a "bad guy" to focus on and motivate the base.

Jim Henson, director of the Texas Politics Project at the University of Texas at Austin, says Democrats nationally — and in some parts of Texas — have unleashed the kind of intensity we used to see from the tea party.

“So the question of whether there is still that ability to motivate Republican voters on the other side is the big question going into this cycle,” Henson said.

Henson believes one reason the tea party’s galvanizing force has slipped in local and congressional races is that conservatives no longer have Barack Obama to target. And Donald Trump has taken over the role of chief agitator of conservatives.

Tea party-backed candidates have also been elected. In Texas, the movement has been changed by that success.

“I think once you have people who are part of institutions, it inevitably looks different, because you aren’t banging from the outside,” Henson said. “Like it or not, you are part of the status quo, and you are part of the establishment.”

Perhaps the only competitive statewide contest down the ballot shows signs of GOP panic, as indicted felon/AG Ken Paxton digs in to the deepest pockets of the friends he has left.

In addition to the TV ads, Paxton’s recent campaign finance filings have indicated that Republicans in high places are tuned in to the race in its home stretch. In recent days, the attorney general has received a $282,000 in-kind donation from Gov. Greg Abbott’s campaign; more than $350,000 in in-kind contributions from Texas for Lawsuit Reform, the political arm of the tort reform group; and $10,000 each from two of the biggest donors in the Republican Party: Sheldon and Miriam Adelson.

Millard Fillmore's Bathtub linked to a picture of Sweaty Beto, which may have been the Halloween costume of the year.


Stirred by Trump's call, armed militia groups head south to welcome the tired, poor, huddled masses yearning to breathe free intercept the invading (sic) migrant caravan.

Asked whether his group planned to deploy with weapons, McGauley laughed. “This is Texas, man,” he said.

Off the Kuff examined a pair of statewide judicial races.

In Harris County, the Texas Observer foresees a day of reckoning for Republican judges who have held fast to the money bail system, rewarding their friends and penalizing the poor.

Isiah Carey of Fox26 was first with the news that Houston mayor Sylvester Turner's first announced challenger next year will be former Democrat*, now (?) not-Trump Republican, non-DWI-convict and megawealthy trial lawyer -- Rick Perry's defense attorney, for those catching up -- Tony Buzbee.  *Lookie here, from Texpatriate:

(D)espite being the one-time Chairman of the Galveston County Democratic Party, a two-time Democrat nominee for the State Legislature and the once rumored Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor. However, of late, Buzbee has been appointed to the Board of Regents of his alma matter, Texas A&M University, and become a key financial supporter of both Perry and (Gov. Greg) Abbott.

Durrel Douglas at Houston Justice blogged the 2019 Houston City Council District B early line.  And in an excellent explainer, described how the local activist/consultant game -- getting paid to do politics, that is -- is a lot like having the app on your phone for the jukebox down at the local bar.

Socratic Gadfly, returning from a recent vacation, took a look at a major nature and environment issue that fired up up opposition to Trump — the Bears Ears downsizing — and offered his thoughts on the value of the original national monument site versus critics of several angles, and things that could make it even better.

Therese Odell at Foolish Watcher also leavens the politics with some Game of Thrones news.

And Harry Hamid's midnight tale from last week moves ahead to 1 a.m. (with no accounting for Daylight Savings Time and 'falling back' noted).

          Police Apprehend Deadly Drivers Who Planned To Kidnap Their Boss' Wife (Photo)      Cache   Translate Page      
 
Police men in Lagos state have apprehended two suspected kidnappers who planned to abduct their employer’s wife. It was gathered that the suspects - Austine Anya and Emmanuel Okemayin were employed as private drivers to the family of Mrs. Ijeoma Eze-Okafor, but they didn't know they were employing kidnappers.
 
The two drivers were said to have arranged with some of their gang members to kidnap Mrs. Ijeoma for ransom but they were unfortunate as they were caught in the act by divine intervention.
 
It was gathered that the suspects contacted one Awosola Adewale, gave him money to contact a native doctor and source for the arms for the operation while they still worked in the house as drivers in order to perfect the wicked act.
 
However, while they were planning, they contacted some people for the supply of arms and an operational vehicle unknown to them it was the operatives of FSARS they contacted and they were eventually arrested on the day of the operation.
 
This was confirmed by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Imohimi Edgal and the three suspects were paraded at the State Command on Monday.
 
CP Edgal explained that the police received credible information that some kidnappers had concluded arrangements to kidnap a renowned businesswoman, Mrs. Ijeoma Eze- Okafor.
 
The police boss said that directives were given to the FSARS operatives to infiltrate the camp and play along with them. He said the suspects requested for arms, ammunition and vehicle for the operation while the suspects on their own sent the photograph of the target, details of her vehicle and other information to their new partners not knowing they were dealing with policemen.
 
CP Edgal said that it took 10 days for the gang to plan and on the day they had planned to execute their plan they were immediately arrested.
 
He said that during interrogation, it was discovered that the two drivers were employed to drive the target and her husband respectively while the third suspect was given N10,000 to engage the services of a native doctor that will protect them after the operation.
 
The suspects confessed and claimed that they had planned to kidnap the target because she was wicked to them.
 
Mr. Edgal said that the suspects will be charged to court after the conclusion of investigations.

7 Nov 2018 - Workshop at Austin Court

FREE

Smart-cities-1538198218

About this event Synopsis:The terms “smart cities” and “future cities” are used a lot nowadays and are also used rather generically to refer to how towns and cities would develop in the future with the impact of digital technologies, novel infrastructure developments (e.g. transport, communications, environment) and delivering better cities to live and work in. Although there have been several discussions about the major topics surrounding “smart cities”, this Smart Cities Workshop initiative aims to bring the citizen at the centre of the discussion to explore how these would influence and impact them, as well as offering a platform for exploring the topics in a local context. The event will also facilitate discussions amongst various stakeholders (e.g. academia, business, government, etc.).

Our two keynote speakers will set the scene covering presentations on:

Our increasingly connected, data-driven digital world and 21st-century skill sets which current and future generations can expect as they journey into the places where they will live and work in the future

How new ideas are transforming cities, and how to make the most of them

Through the workshop, the above will then be explored further in smaller groups in the context of how project controls and its future will play a role in delivering our future smart cities, considering various emerging themes in a local, national and global context with the citizen at the heart of the discussions.

This is a truly cynical sentiment. Whatever the roles of Messrs Austin and Coard were in 1983, no one in Grenada called for the U.S. invasion. In fact even President Reagan's closest political ally, Margaret Thatcher, criticized it. The invasion in fact occurred as a cheap political stunt to distract attention from the bombing of the U.S. Marine compound in Beirut. You're entitled to your political opinions, but please try to get the facts straight.

          Mike Fisher Puts a Huge Twist on Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats"      Cache   Translate Page      

Carrie Underwood isn't the only singer in this family!

Just last month, Mike Fisher took to Instagram and shared a photo of himself recording in a music studio. "I know you guys have been waiting a long time but new music is on the way!!" he teased. "Stay tuned!"

Well as it turns out, the NHL player wasn't completely playing around.

Earlier this week, Mike decided to release a music video for "Before She Bleats." And spoiler alert country music fans: It's a hilarious parody of his wife's smash-hit "Before He Cheats."

"I'd like to thank all the people that helped make this dream come true. It's been a long time coming but excited to share my heart and soul through this song. Hope you guys enjoy," he shared online. "Full version is in the catchin deers Facebook page!!"

Stars and Their Sport Studs

Mike added, "PS- I'd normally be wearing my @qalo wedding ring but I had hand surgery @catchindeers."

While the music video is a treat within itself, fans can't help but fall in love with the catchy lyrics such as, "Right now he's probably out grazing with a corn-fed doe and it's probably getting frisky."

"Before She Bleats" was created to promote Mike's hunting-themed clothing line he built alongside Austin Casselman and Bud Fisher. The business titled Catchin' Deers is hunting apparel for folks that take their hunting seriously and themselves lightly.

In fact, their gear and apparel is available online with a nationwide launch coming soon.

For those wondering what Carrie thinks of the video, we're all waiting in suspense. For now, she's preparing to co-host the 2018 CMA Awards with Brad Paisley.

And no, Mike's song isn't nominated for an award just yet.

I wanted to create a warm sunny day of this gorgeous city. I used a reflection technique to highlight the foliage and bridge on river. My palette includes sky blues, soft teals, warm orange, greens, and neutrals.

<a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/bohemian-rhapsody/"><em><strong>Bohemian Rhapsody</strong> </em></a>has some brilliant high points and one of them is Mike Myers' cheesy role in the film.

But there's another, cheekier reason Myers is in the film: to tell a meta <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/waynes-world/"><em>Wayne's World</em></a> joke and reference the impact the Queen song had on his own breakthrough in 1992.

Ozone layer shows continuing signs of recovery from human-caused damage and could be healed worldwide by 2060:

The measures taken to repair the damage will also have an important beneficial effect on climate change, as some of the gases that caused the ozone layer to thin and in places disappear also contribute to warming the atmosphere. Phasing them out could avoid as much as 0.5C (0.9F) of warming this century

Recovery from the holes and thinning caused by aerosol chemicals has progressed at a rate of about 1% to 3% a decade since 2000, meaning the ozone layer over the northern hemisphere and mid-latitudes should heal completely by the 2030s, if current rates are sustained.

          Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen ist zurück      Cache   Translate Page      

Der Film „Bohemien Rapsody“ zeigt die Geschichte der Band Queen, wenn auch etwas einseitig aus der Fokussierung zu Freddie Mercury. Die Schauspieler wurden aber genial besetzt. Bryan Singer der eher für die X-Men Serie bekannt ist, bringt den Film sehr süffig auf die Leinwand. In den 70er Jahre war Farrokh Bulsara (Rami Malek), ein pakistanischer Sohn, ein Arbeiter auf dem Flughafen in London. Wie jeder Jugendlicher geht er gerne auf Konzerten. Da traf er auf die Band „Smile“ die er absolut toll fand. So extrovertiert wie er war, wollte er bei ihnen Leadsänger werden. Nach Gesprächen mit der Gruppe warnen diese einverstanden und wollten es mit ihm versuchen. Von da an nannte sich Farrokh, Freddie. Er kam beim Publikum sofort gut an und so tourten sie durch England. Er lernte auch seine Freundin Mary Austin (Lucy Boynton) kennen. Ein erstes Album kam zu einem grossen Plattenvertrag und einer Tour in Amerika. Freddie erkannte mit der Zeit, dass er zu Mary eine ganz besondere Beziehung hat, interessiert sich aber immer mehr für Männer. Dies gestand er ihr dann ein, wollte sich aber nicht trennen. Das nächste Album war sehr umstritten, da die Lieder an eine Oper erinnert und nicht dem Mainstream entsprach. Das gab Stress mit der Plattenfirma und ein neues Label musste her. In den 80er Jahren trennte sich Freddie von Brian May, Roger Taylor und John Deacon da er die Touren satt hatte. Er zog sich nach München zurück um dort in Ruhe seine solo Alben komponieren und sein Leben ausleben zu können. Zu der Band zurück kam er um an Live Aid Konzert Teil zu nehmen. Der Film ist zu Beginn recht leicht gemacht. Der Erfolg der Band läuft so vor sich hin. Das wird recht schön gezeigt. Die Reihenfolge der Ereignisse entsprechen jedoch nicht immer der Tatsachen wie diese waren. Es wurden hier immer wieder Anpassungen gemacht und verändert. Dies wohl zu Gunsten der Stimmung in der Gruppe und dem Film. Denn sehr lange scheinen die Probleme der Band bez. das narzisstische verhalten von Freddie Mercury nicht aufzufallen. Dies tut dem Film zwar nichts schlechtes an. Es geht ja um die Band und nicht alleine um den Leadsänger. Jedoch werden dann die jeweiligen Solokarieren nicht genauer angeschaut und was die anderen in der Zeit taten, bleibt im dunklen. Lediglich und eher oberflächlich werden die Partys welche Freddie gab gezeigt und wie er etwas verloren war so ohne halt. Doch der Fokus liegt ganz klar auf Freddie. Der Höhepunkt des Filmes ist der Auftritt bei Live Aid. Aber die Band machte nach dem Auftritt noch 2 weitere Studio Alben und eine Filmmusik was gänzlich weggelassen wurde. Auch die doch längere Krankheit wird nicht gross thematisiert, leider. Denn auch Freddie schweig lange über diese und erzählte es nicht mal seinem Partner Jim Hutton. Die Schauspieler und hier allen voran Rami Malek leistet hier hervorragende. Man sieht wirklich Freddie auf der Bühne. Die Live Shows und die Art wie sich Malek bewegt entspricht genau jenem Verhalten von Freddie. Obwohl die Abfolge der Ereignisse nicht genau der Wahrheit entspricht, ist Bohemian Rhapsody ein Film der unter die Haut geht. Meine Bewertung

Alec Benjamin
In Association With Vero True Social

Alec Benjamin found himself without a label, without a deal, and – largely – without support. Gambling everything, he booked a ticket to Europe, and played wherever he could find an audience – clubs, venues, or even parking lots.

“I was working without management or a label, so I had one other person on my team who stuck with me, and said: do you want to go tour in Europe? I said yeah, I’ll go!” he recalls. “I just went myself. I spent pretty much all the money I had, and played shows across Europe, in Germany and the UK. Then I walked past this Shawn Mendes show, and I thought, well, I could just play for them! So I did, and I got more social media attention than at any other point on the tour. So when I got home I decided to keep going.”

Playing 165 shows in that first year, Alec’s exhausting, lung-bursting schedule finally bore fruit. Each song reached a larger audience, clocking up millions of streams worldwide. Something seemed to click – midway between Paul Simon and Eminem in his approach to word play, the self-styled ‘narrator’ watching the world as it passed.

“I feel sometimes I’m more comfortable like that,” he shrugs. “Sometimes it’s easier to have a bird’s eye view, and write like that. And a lot of my favourite songwriters echo that.”

A mash up of influences, Alec’s work veers from straight singer-songwriter territory to something more approaching rap in its dexterous wordplay. This breaking down of barriers seems perfectly pitched for an audience attuned to streaming, and to playlist culture.

“I think now, obviously, it happens more and more,” he reflects. “I don’t really know how other people listen to music apart from me. I didn’t really get into music because of the genre, I got into it because of the words. I really never pay attention to the genre.” “I listen to a lot of country music, too,” Alec continues. “And I got pulled into that because of the melodies, the production, and what people were talking about. Even if it’s in the singer-songwriter category, if I don’t relate to the lyrics then I don’t really listen to it.”

Working continuously, Alec is currently gearing up to complete a full album, and is fresh from touring huge arenas with the likes of Camilla Cabello. It’s all a far cry from pitching up to a courtyard outside the venue, wondering if anyone would notice him. Climbing a mountain in every sense, Alec Benjamin is a success – but he wonders how we could even define such a nebulous, highly personal term.

“My definition of what that is changes pretty much every day,” he says. “I try to face the horizon and keep moving, so I don’t really know how to define success. I guess one of my goals is to figure that out!”

Welcome to the inaugural Smark Out Moment 2018 CHAMPSGIVING tournament!

For this first edition, it seemed only fitting to discuss the top tier talent in WWE with the best world champions (WWE Championship, World Heavyweight Championship, and Universal Championship) as of fall 2018.

At the time of the creation of this bracket, there were just three people shy of a full 64, so two bye-rounds were vacated and on a technicality, Ted DiBiase was given a spot for argument's sake. All participants were seeded based on their combined days as champion up until the assumed November 2nd Crown Jewel event.


The results from Round 3 are in and the winners are as follows (and can be found in more detail here):

Undertaker defeated Bruno Sammartino | Randy Orton defeated Goldberg
Steve Austin defeated John Cena | Triple H defeated Batista
AJ Styles defeated Daniel Bryan | CM Punk defeated Yokozuna

          BẦU CỬ 2018 & NGƯỜI MỸ GỐC VIỆT (Genie Nguyễn Thị Ngọc Giao)       Cache   Translate Page      



Genie Nguyễn Thị Ngọc Giao  -  Voice of Vietnamese Amerians
05/11/2018

Ngày mai, 6 tháng 11, Hoa Kỳ sẽ có cuộc bầu cử giữa hai kỳ bầu Tổng Thống, hay còn gọi là “Bầu Cử Giữa Kỳ” (Midterm Elections). Người Mỹ gốc Việt đã có những tham gia rất tích cực vào kỳ bầu cử này. Cho đến hôm nay, vài ngày trước ngày bầu cử chính thức, người Mỹ gốc Việt cũng chia sẻ nhiều sôi động với các náo loạn của dòng chính, ngay cả chia rẽ với tinh thần đảng phái cực đoan trong cộng đồng mình.

Mong rằng sự đóng góp đầy nhiệt tình của chúng ta sẽ không đẩy cộng đồng Mỹ gốc Việt vào sự phân hoá đáng ngại giữa hai chính đảng Hoa Kỳ, rơi vào sự kỳ thị chủng tộc, kỳ thị tôn giáo, hiềm khích đầy bạo lực không nên có. 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."

          COORS LIGHT RECAP: PATS OUTLAST BLADES 6-5      Cache   Translate Page      
Keith Hershmiller Photography
REGINA – The Regina Pats got two goals and an assist from both Jake Leschyshyn and Nick Henry to beat the Saskatoon Blades 6-5 at the Brandt Centre on Saturday night.

The Blades opened the scoring on the powerplay, but the Pats responded with goals from Nick Henry, his seventh and Duncan Pierce, his fourth, to lead 2-1 after one.

In the second, Austin Pratt picked up his eighth to extend the lead to 3-1 and that chased Blades goaltender Nolan Meier, 31 seconds into the period. The Blades got one back from Tristen Robins and trailed just 3-2. Jake Leschyshyn restored the two-goal lead on the powerplay with his eighth and the Pats led 4-2. Saskatoon came back with three in the final 7:11 of the period, two of them on the powerplay and led 5-4 at the break.

In the third, Nick Henry set up Jake Leschyshyn back door for his second of the night and ninth of the season to tie the game at five. The Pats went to their second powerplay in the final five minutes, and on it, Nick Henry hammered home the game winner from the right point into the top corner for his second of the game and eighth of the season to make it 6-5 and that was the final.

The Pats were outshot 32-25 in the win. The powerplay was 2/2 and the penalty kill 3/6.

Nick Henry, Jake Leschyshyn and Aaron Hyman led the way with three point nights, while Max Paddock and Dean McNabb combined to make 27 saves.

Quick Hits
- Nick Henry put up two goals and an assist and has six goals and six assists over a seven-game point streak.
- Jake Leschyshyn also had a two goal and one assist performance to extend his point streak to five games. Has three goals and five assists in that stretch.
- Aaron Hyman had three assists, his third three-point night of the season.
- The attendance was 5,600.

What’s Next?
The Pats are back in action on Friday night against the Tri-City Americans at 7 p.m. at the Brandt Centre. Tickets are available at reginapats.com, the Brandt Centre Box Office and at any Regina Safeway, where Fun Zone tickets are $13 plus tax.

Gaming time

Over a month ago I decided to make some changes that were intended to reduce the amount of time I waste on time-demanding (and perhaps not so enjoyable) games. This week I took a few minutes to see how I've been getting on.

The time I spent playing games (I think this is all time-sucking games with a few minutes here and there - I haven't played a "proper" computer game in ages) over the last few months:

July: 11 hours, 46 minutes August: 13 hours, 18 minutes September: 9 hours, 10 minutes (changes made towards the end) October: 4 hours, 49 minutes

So it's gone down, by quite a lot. But I still spent nearly 5 hours chasing time limited bonuses, taking part in time limited contests and recharging/rebuilding some numbers in a database!

I want to get back to gaming that builds reactions and skills (yes, they might only be skills at a game but it's better than repeated drudgery where you inevitably do better because you've upgraded things - a few minutes here and there really not being enough to build a skill anyway). Or maybe even gaming with other real people who you can speak to afterwards!

Exhausting meetings

Another week with a lot of time spent in phone and physical meetings. These seem to take so much energy, especially the physical meetings - I'm always exhausted by the time I get back. The meetings were mostly for consultancy clients this week and they've come with a lot of required background thinking and planning, which probably hasn't helped my feeling of tiredness. Unfortunately it also means there's going to be a lot of writing in next weeks schedule.

php (WordPress) development environment

I don't do much in PHP but this week I've ended up building two development/testing environments for WordPress related things.

One was just for a one-time test to work out how (if) a data migration from Magento to Woocommerce would work. For this I used the super simple Scotch Box which provided all the basics. Then I copied over a couple of databases (with mysqldump, etc) and copied the website files - that was it, a working and easily disposable testing environment. The Magento to Woocommerce migration seemed to work quite well too!

The second environment was for actual, and ongoing, development. My PaTMa blog is using WordPress and I'm working on a custom theme so that I can make it more consistent with the application site. Then my intention is to also use WordPress for the marketing site for PaTMa, leaving just the actual application as a Django based bespoke site. I've previously played with the Vagrant approach for this too, but it felt a bit heavier/slower than I wanted. Thankfully it didn't take long to find (be reminded of really) PHP's built-in web server , work out a few PHP dependencies (I already have MySQL installed on my main dev machine) and make use of the excellent WP-CLI to make an empty WordPress site all ready for some theme development.

In case it's useful to anyone, here's what I actually did:

sudo apt install php7.2-cli php-mysql curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wp-cli/builds/gh-pages/phar/wp-cli.phar -o wp chmod +x wp mkdir test-wp cd test-wp ../wp core download ../wp core config --dbname=test_wp --dbuser=root --dbpass=root --dbhost=localhost ../wp db create ../wp core install --url=http://localhost:8000 --title=Test --admin_user=admin --admin_password=password --admin_email=admin@example.com php -S localhost:8000

Then point a browser at http://localhost:8000/ to see a basic, default WordPress site.

One final step for me was linking my development theme into this new WordPress install:

cd wp-content/themes ln -s ../../../my-theme

I then logged in as admin and activated my development theme, all ready for work.

Bricks and Blocks

Saturday included a visit to a Bricks and Blocks event that the local scout group ran. I was quite surprised by how large the event was; there were a lot of great things on display including an infinite (ie circular) ball-run made entirely from Lego and a Robot Wars stall. The Robot Wars display included several full size robots, including one being demo'd; plus a mini arena with mini robots for the "children" to try out. The range of Lego was also impressive with all sorts from town to Star Wars to the new Harry Potter. Even the ancient Fabuland had a stall, much to the delight of our youngest (who's a fan of some Fabuland books I still have).

Uneventful budget

Having set aside my Monday afternoon to watch the budget - so I could react quickly and get any changes required for the buy-to-let profit calculations , I was quite pleased it was pretty bored, especially on the landlord and property front.

Property

I had a great chat with Susannah Cole from The Good Property Company - some fantastic insights.

Los cambios de ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ en la verdadera historia de Freddie Mercury y Queen#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000\

Como en toda recreación de hechos reales en el cine, se han tomado ciertas licencias para contarnos la vida de Freddie Mercury y la trayectoria de Queen.

Aunque no hay unanimidad en la crítica especializada sobre el valor de la película Bohemian Rhapsody (Bryan Singer y Dexter Fletcher, 2018), algunos coincidimos con los espectadores cinéfilos, a los que les ha entusiasmado en líneas generales según los números que se desprenden de sus votos en los ficheros de cine en la red, y la consideramos uno de los mejores biopics sobre músicos del séptimo arte. Y eso que, por razones de idoneidad narrativa y probablemente conveniencia de los miembros restantes de Queen, Anthony McCarten ha cambiado en su guion unos cuantos aspectos de la historia real de Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek) y la trayectoria de su célebre banda de rock. Tal como cuenta Fax Farrow en Screen Rant, “las líneas de tiempo han sido alteradas” y, “ocasionalmente, algunos detalles no coinciden” y “varios eventos se reorganizan para crear un potente efecto dramático”.

La primera diferencia la podemos encontrar en cómo se formó el grupo: el joven Farrokh Bulsara (Freddie) fue compañero de piso de Brian May (Gwilym Lee), Roger Taylor (Ben Hardy) y Tim Staffell (Jack Roth), componentes de Smile, por un tiempo, y actuaron juntos en Liverpool con Ibex, la banda a la que pertenecía Mercury, en 1969; de manera que el cantante no reemplazó a Staffell en Smile con la espontaneidad del filme. Así mismo, Mary Austin (Lucy Boynton) había estado saliendo con May antes de que Freddie la conociese durante sus horas de trabajo en la tienda Biba, y este último pidió permiso a May para interesarse por ella, que sólo empezó a seguir a Smile después. Mercury y Austin no rompieron ni se alejaron tan dramáticamente, y ella además fue su asistente personal una temporada. “Todos mis amantes me han preguntado por qué no podía reemplazar a Mary, pero es simplemente imposible”, dijo Freddie en una entrevista de 1985.

Resulta obvio para cualquiera, por otra parte, que se ha pasado de puntillas por la vida disoluta de Mercury en fiestas y con las drogas, y por su gran apetito sexual: no es que no se haya sugerido que era así, sino que se ha minimizado su desarrollo en la película para adaptarla a un público más mayoritario, según los deseos del productor Graham King. Y se da a entender la homosexualidad de Freddie, cuando lo cierto es que tuvo otras amantes femeninas, como la actriz alemana Barbara Valentín (Berlin Alexanderplatz), y por lo tanto, era bisexual pese a no haber querido etiquetarse nunca. Y tampoco le reveló a sus padres, Bomi (Ace Bhatti) y Jer Bulsara (Meneka Das), cual era su verdadera relación con Jim Hutton (Aaron McCusker), de quien dijo que se trataba de su jardinero cuando le preguntaron. Así, la aceptación de sus progenitores no es otra cosa que una concesión emocional agradable para los espectadores.

Si bien Brian May y Roger Taylor calificaron a Paul Prenter (Allen Leech) como “una mala influencia” para Mercury, la verdad es que no llegó al punto de que causara su ruptura con el grupo. Y ni siquiera se fueron tres por dos calles, sino que optaron conjuntamente por reducir la producción de Queen y explorar su música en solitario. Como tampoco echó Freddie al representante John Reid (Aidan Gillen) por una trampa que le tendió Prenter, sino que cortaron lazos como amigos; ni el cantante se marchó solo a Munich, ya que el resto de los miembros de la banda le acompañaron; ni despidió a Prenter por no informarle de los conciertos Live Aid en el estadio londinense de Wembley sino un año más tarde, en 1986, por vender información jugosa al tabloide The Sun, de modo que no le traicionó en ninguna entrevista televisiva como vemos en el filme. Y Ray Foster (Mike Myers) no existe: representa a distintos productores que no comprendieron ni apoyaron las ideas de Queen.

Freddie Mercury en Live Aid (1985) - Irish News

Mercury no recibió su diagnóstico del sida hasta 1987, dos años después del concierto de Live Aid, tardó otros dos más en anunciárselo los otros integrantes de la banda y el mundo lo desconoció hasta noviembre de 1991. Y no podríamos escuchar la canción “Who Wants To Live Forever” cuando Freddie afronta a la perspectiva de su enfermedad ni su composición está vinculada a ella: en realidad, es obra de Brian May para la película Highlander (Russell Mulcahy, 1986), que se estrenó un año después de Live Aid y otro antes del triste diagnóstico. Y por último, si en las actuaciones benéficas de Wembley participaban artistas internacionales como Sting, Phil Collins, U2, Bryan Adams, David Bowie, Madonna, Elton John, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, The Who, Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Santana o Stevie Wonder, parece muy improbable que no se produjesen donaciones telefónicas hasta que Queen pisó el escenario. Aunque su música sea tan extraordinaria.

Midterm Elections - Millions of Votes Silenced

Make sure your voice is heard and vote!

The historic midterm election is over, but there is still a lot of work moving forward to ensure the protection of human rights for all. The following quote on the election results can be attributed to Nicole Austin-Hillery, Executive Director, US Program, Human Rights Watch:

“What we just saw was a record number of voters who made their voices heard at a pivotal moment in this country’s history. In the next Congress, it is imperative that the House and Senate exercise their oversight authority over this administration’s practices of abandoning refugees, detaining immigrant children, suppressing voter turnout, and rolling back women’s health and LGBT protections.”

Human Rights Watch experts are available to offer analysis on what these election results mean for the country, and for our human rights that hang in the balance.

          Halloween 2018      Cache   Translate Page      
Wednesday was a rather busy day and with orchestra in the morning I didn't have time to snap a picture of Rachel before school. I also didn't get around to snapping a picture of Zoë before her preschool Halloween party because she was in such a sour mood that we were running late by the time I'd convinced her to put on her costume and head out the door.

But I did manage to take pictures of the other three! 

Here's Benjamin dressed up as Neville Longbottom—notice the earmuffs and the mandrake:



Here's Miriam as Little Red Riding Hood—she used her basket as her backpack so her lunchbox is tucked inside:


And here's my sweet little elephant, Alexander, trying to play in the leaves:


And here he is yelling about the little mittens because they're making playing in the leaves difficult:


I had to run class parties for both Rachel and Miriam (which I'll write about more later, maybe), so it was a crazy afternoon for me! Karen offered to keep both Zoë and Alexander during the parties, but I'd already decided to take them with me because Grandma had been so sick. But I also knew that trying to run both parties with Alexander clinging to my legs was going to be very difficult, so when she pressed me about it a little further, I caved. I told her I would leave Alexander behind with her but that I was going to take Zoë with me (one child is easier than two).

And now I feel guilty about doing even that because was that the straw that broke her back?

What's done is done, I guess. And Grandma and Alexander really get along quite well together. I know she loves to spend time with him (though he probably loves spending time with her more) so I shouldn't feel too guilty. But still, I do.

After school was a flurry of activity. Rachel helped the little ones carve a couple of pumpkins (but, as it turns out, they didn't ever finish the task) while I got a healthy dinner going. But then Rachel's friends invited her to go out trick-or-treating with them, so she wolfed down a piece of bread before dashing off to Tayah's house. I thought her little crust of bread was fitting for the evening since she had dressed up as Éponine (using things she found around the house; we just had to make the little red/white/blue ribbon for her hat):


Shortly before Halloween I asked the Facebook world how families manage to do family-wide theme costumes year after year. I can't even imagine coordinating such an effort (I'm sure my children wouldn't stand for it). But other people manage to do it—and their kids seem happy about it.

I'm not really ever planning on doing this because I'm perfectly happy with our Halloween Misfits, but there was some good advice offered (like deciding well in advance and sending your kids subliminal messages throughout the year so by the time Halloween rolls around they're well-prepared to accept your idea; and dressing up as a family for a church activity but letting the kids be whatever they'd like for school/trick-or-treating (which sounds like twice as much work to me)).

The question I should have asked was how anyone manages to find the time to eat dinner, get the kids in their costumes and take a picture of all of the kids together because we haven't managed that in a couple of years now and it just seems impossible to me. So individual pictures will have to suffice.

Here's Miriam as Little Red Riding Hood again:


My mom made the cape and hood for Rachel a few years ago, but I don't think Rachel ever used them (at least not for Halloween). Little Red Riding Hood was a surprisingly popular costume this year.

Here's Benjamin putting our Hogwarts robe to good use, this time as Neville Longbottom:


I did buy him a white polo shirt to wear for this costume, but I figured we'd get more use out of that in the future. I fashioned some earmuffs out of fluffy pink yarn (as a tribute to the pink muffs featured in the book but also because Benjamin loves pink) and made the mandrake out of old nylons (and leaves from a fake plant). I made the robe for Rachel on her fifth birthday and the scarf was a gift from then-soon-to-be-but-we-didn't-know-it-yet Aunt Shayla.


Zoë, the uncooperative little miss, dressed up as Angelina Ballerina, more or less recycling Miriam's costume from 2012. She chose a different tutu and wouldn't let me put much makeup on her (she actually didn't realize I'd even gotten the whiskers on her face and calmed down a lot when I showed her evidence that I'd wiped off the nose I'd drawn on her (she hates facepaint)):


She flip-flopped between Angelina Ballerina and The Princess in Black for weeks upon weeks so I finally decided that I should just have both costumes ready. Neither costume was a lot of work because I already had the Angelina costume. The Princess in Black was mostly cobbled together from the dress-up box (a pink princess dress and a black batman cape, since she wanted to be half-Princess Magnolia and half-Princess in Black). I made her a little superhero mask, but that took minimal work. 

We have a picture of her running around in that costume somewhere, but on Halloween Day she settled on Angelina Ballerina. She had no little mouse face drawn on her Zoë face, I had to battle her to put two pairs of tights on (it was cold), and she wore her leotard inside-out, but she was Angelina.

And here's my little sweetie elephant again:


Grandma picked up this costume on clearance while she was out shopping. It was just so adorable that she couldn't resist, and Alexander is adorable in it! He could hardly move because I had him in two pairs of footie-jammies underneath this fluffy elephant onesie (like I said, it was cold).

He was going to be a penguin, though I hadn't even tried our little penguin costume on him, so who knows if it even fits him? I'll have to remember to dress him in it for a picture before I put all the Halloween stuff away (because he'll be the third child to wear it). I'll probably forget...

Here's four of our five ready to head out trick-or-treating:


And here I am ready to take them trick-or-treating (I'm dressed as a nondescript Hogwarts teacher (Ravenclaw, obviously)):


Alexander tolerated his long ride in the wagon quite well.

Zoë tripped at the second house (and probably about two dozen other houses). She asked to go home after about five minutes. She hopped in and out of the wagon a thousand times. She cried about her Angelina ears a billion times. But she was also quite entranced by the magic of the evening—of dinosaurs roaming the street, of cackling witches handing her candy, of glowing phantoms and cheery jack-o-lanterns. 

Benjamin slowly lost all his accessories. He tired of carrying the wand and put it in the wagon. He somehow managed to lose the mandrake even though we'd fastened it to his wrist. Eventually he pulled off his earmuffs, venting, "No one even understand who I am!" because they all figured he was Harry Potter. 

He also took one of those classic Halloween spills where his candy bucket went sailing through the air and then went skittering down the sidewalk, raining candy all around. He was so sad about his knee but was absolutely distraught about his candy. Fortunately, his fall happened very close to the end of our route so we were almost home.

Miriam was a very pleasant trick-or-treating companion. She'd hoped to go out with friends but was also happy to hang out with me (and I was glad for her company). She helped Zoë get up to doorways while I stayed back with the wagon. Her heart wasn't really into trick-or-treating this year because with her palate-expander in place (and with braces forthcoming) there wasn't a whole lot being handed out that she could eat. So she always grabbed play-dough (or other gadgets) and chocolate when she could.

Rachel was off having her own little adventures, which hopefully she'll write about on her own. 

It was quite an exhausting evening. And then when I looked out the window on the morning of Novemeber 1st, what do you think I saw?

Two half-carved pumpkins sitting in the cold, drizzly rain! I guess they needed a little more help than I'd realized (though in their defense, I think they managed to get two pumpkins fully carved).


Andrew and I told each other that this year we were going to for sure make pumpkin puree out of our jack-o-lanterns (we didn't last year because of Alexander and chaos), but I think these half-carved pumpkins serve as a perfect illustration of how our November has gone so far. 

We're all feeling a little half-carved—like we've been torn open and had our innards ripped out* and maybe even have a knife sticking in our eye—so I don't expect we'll get around to making pumpkin puree this year. It was a noble(-ish) effort.


* Grandma probably feels like this the most. She had an operation to put in a...line...for dialysis since her kidneys aren't functioning right now. She's had two rounds of dialysis so far and it seems to be helping. Tonight Andrew and Rachel ran dinner down to Grandpa and got to visit with Grandma for a few minutes and she was (a) awake (which is huge) and (b) making complete sentences (also huge).

I think a lot of the anti-LCOL arguments here are actually straw man arguments against VLCOL, i.e. remote rural areas, which have their own plusses and minuses. I don't think that's the type of area that *most* people are considering when they're thinking about building wealth in a LCOL area.



The Dallas area, as an example, is the 4th largest metropolitan area in the country. It has plenty of well paid jobs, quality restaurants, top notch medical facilities, top quality sports facilities, and is solidly LCOL -- way less than half of the COL of Manhattan according to the link above. 4000 sq ft house, $400k or less. Don't want a McMansion? Great, then it's even less. It's not devoid of culture, but is obviously no match for NYC. That's fine. Flights to NYC are regularly $300 or better from our airport that is the 4th busiest in the world and is larger than the island of Manhattan. For the difference in rent we're talking about, I could fly to NYC every weekend if I needed to. Traffic is manageable, and leagues better than Austin, which was mentioned earlier. DFW is an example proving that infinite exurbia can in fact work, and keep costs down because there's no limits in any direction, not because nobody wants to be there. Sure, summer is hot, but that just means both Spring and Fall are basically what other people consider a pleasant, mild summer, so we get twice as much of that as everybody else.



Now, if you live in NYC and like it, that doesn't mean the above reasons need to be sufficient for you to consider it worth it. It just means you're paying an awfully high premium to live down the street from those Broadway shows on all the days you're not going to Broadway shows. And you think McMansions are ridiculous. Great! You live in the right place. But it's reasonable to point out that someone whose primary goal is to build wealth has options in the LCOL areas, especially if expensive restaurants and Broadway *every weekend* isn't their thing. Depending on what you value (space, quiet, etc. vs culture, excitement, etc.), there's a reasonable argument to be made that the overall standard of living can paradoxically be higher in the LCOL areas, all things considered, which is the point people are trying to make about the income in HCOL not increasing in proportion to the costs. If your solution is to live in a bad area with a bunch of roommates, well, you could do that to save money here too, but you don't have to, and that's sort of the point.



As for the $1m shack appreciating to $2m as a retirement plan, there's nothing stopping you from living in a LCOL and putting most of your money in an investment property in California, not that that would probably be recommended by most people here if the decision were made in a vacuum.



And yes, we have pho.


Exactly


To be fair, though, you're in a metropolitan area of over a million with a tech hub. Real podunk looks different. I agree, however, with your general point. Sure, there are people from the land who time forgot. There are also people in NYC who with all their cosmopolitan worldliness can't figure out that there are things going on in flyover, and you can afford them, too, instead of *not* going to things because the rent is too high but feeling smug because you're near them.



On the topic of the thread: eh. If your industry and skillset is such that you can command a premium in HCOL areas, you're better off there with the very high wages. But if your field is such that wage increase doesn't balance the cost of living, you're better off with the lower salary in the LCOL. I'm an academic and my friends in my field in big cities make more than I do. However, none of us are particularly high earners because outside of the superstars no one gets rich in my field, and my dollars go a lot further than theirs. Lower cost of childcare alone swamps their salary increase. I suspect I save a higher percentage, and my podunk town manages to have two pho joints.

Un petit billet rapide, comme cela, le jour où nos Voisins du Sud vont voter aux élections de mi-mandat. Un billet pour noter que les USA n’ont jamais été aussi divisés. Politiquement, socialement, économiquement et bien entendu technologiquement… Le président a beau utiliser Twitter comme arme de désinformation massive, les grands des nouvelles technologies ne suivent pas politiquement et peinent à tenir leurs plates-formes en bon ordre. Les GAFAM, Twitter et l’écosystème des start-ups sont campés dans les grands États et grandes villes (Californie et Côte Est dont New York et Boston ou même Austin au Texas), des États et villes à large pourcentage démocrates. La majorité de leurs dirigeants sont aussi de la même mouvance mais par leurs excès d’appétit fiscal et d’impuissance en gestion des contenus, ils polarisent de plus en plus leurs utilisateurs et leur société. De «Don’t be evil» ils le sont pour plusieurs devenus. La technologie comme la politique divisent encore plus les  USA, creusent des fossés idéologiques mais aussi creusent le fossé des classes sociales et exacerbent les extrémismes et le racisme. De plus, les élections se sont technologiquement transformées depuis 2008. Les deux camps s’affrontent actuellement à coup désinformation, fake news, et fermetures […]

          Democrat Beto O’Rourke’s Underdog Senate Bid Falls Short In Texas      Cache   Translate Page      

EL PASO, Texas ― Democrat Beto O’Rourke’s bid for Senate seat in a reliably red state ended in defeat on Tuesday, dashing the hopes of progressives in Texas and beyond who had yearned for a Congress free of Republican Ted Cruz.

Despite a parade of celebratory national media coverage and a whopping $70 million donation haul ― raised without the aid of big donors or corporate political action committees ― polls had consistently shown the odds were against O’Rourke’s chances of derailing Cruz’s re-election. O’Rourke, 46, narrowed the gap in several surveys in the campaign’s waning days, but never closed it.

Instead, Republicans continue to dominate the major political offices in a state whose changing demographics have made it majority-minority but whose electorate retains a conservative tilt. The GOP hasn’t lost a statewide election since 1994.

“I am as inspired, as hopeful, as I have ever been in my life, and tonight’s loss does nothing to diminish the way that I feel about Texas or this country,” O’Rourke told his supporters in El Paso after conceding. 

“We’re not going to define ourselves by who or what we’re against or afraid of, or scared of,” he added. 

A quixotic Senate campaign by Rep. Beto O'Rourke surprised many observers by attracting national attention and massive financial support. Still, he failed to unseat conservative stalwart Ted Cruz.

 

“The expectations of dramatic, huge partisan shifts are just unrealistic,” University of Texas at Austin political scientist James Henson said. “It’s not going to happen.”

O’Rourke’s campaign was significant not just for the amount of attention it grabbed, but because it attracted any national interest at all.

Democrats seeking statewide office in Texas are used to losing by margins of 20 percentage points or more ― a trend that has made prominent party members unlikely to jump into races they have little confidence in winning. This year, several of the best-known liberal names in the state ― including Julian Castro, who is scouting a run for the presidency ― passed on runs for the Senate seat or the governor’s office.

But given the enthusiasm aroused by O’Rourke, a House member from El Paso, his quixotic campaign is likely to shake up Texas politics in the years to come. His high-profile battle with Cruz should improve Democratic prospects for recruiting better candidates and cause party leaders to view the state as more competitive.

“It will embolden people,” said Jose Parra, a Democratic strategist who worked as an adviser to former U.S. Sen. Harry Reid. “There is a future as a Democrat in Texas.”

Perhaps more importantly, O’Rourke gave beleaguered Texas Democrats a new template by casting aside the traditional strategy of focusing turnout efforts on voters in the state’s four largest urban areas, which skew blue. Instead, O’Rourke anchored his aggressive ground game on his commitment to visit each of the state’s 254 counties. As he traveled he focused on mobilizing Hispanic voters across the neglected border region while simultaneously pleading his case to independents and conservatives in red counties that in the past voted overwhelmingly for Republicans, including Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential race.

“For the longest time, Texas has been written off as a lost cause,” Veronica Escobar, a Democrat who was elected to take over O’Rourke’s House seat on Tuesday, told HuffPost. “There are huge groups of people who have felt left out of the process. Unless you talk to them, they’re never coming back. And I mean literally talk to them. That’s what Beto has done.”

The 47-year-old Cruz, meanwhile, avoided what would have been a crushing blow for a politician who had rocketed to the national stage and now remains primed to be a leading figure in the GOP.

After winning his Senate seat in 2012, Cruz quickly emerged as a strong ― often strident ― voice of the Tea Party conservatism that was remaking the GOP and pushing it further to the right. In 2013 alone, he helped scuttle a bipartisan push for the comprehensive reform of immigration policy reform and played a key role in a 16-day government shutdown.

Never shy about his ambition, he quickly became a major contender in the crowded race for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. He won several caucuses and primaries and emerged as the last candidate standing against Trump.

There appeared to be no love lost between the two men as they battled in the GOP race ― the Texan called Trump a “pathological liar,” while the New York businessman took to calling his foe “Lyin’ Ted Cruz.” But after Trump won the White House, Cruz emerged as a reliable administration supporter and a defender of the president’s combative style.

Trump returned the favor by heartily endorsing Cruz and traveling to Texas late last month to headline a huge rally for the senator and, in typical fashion, bash O’Rourke.

The Democrat, for his part, eschewed a political climate marked by negativity and ran a relentlessly upbeat campaign. O’Rourke declined to attack Cruz until their second debate in October. Instead, he trumpeted bipartisanship while staking out positions on several issues that placed him within the Democratic Party’s progressive wing.

He backed an incremental approach toward universal health care, tougher antitrust laws and a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. As part of a comprehensive critique urging reform of the criminal justice system, he called for the legalization of marijuana and the erasure of weed possession convictions. 

Democrats have to get up the morning after this election, no matter how depressed they are, and really understand that one of the things that really helped them this cycle is that they attracted a really strong candidate at the top of the ticket and some really strong candidates at the congressional level, and think about immediately building on that. James Henson, political scientist at the University of Texas at Austin.

The highly publicized and covered contest between Cruz and O’Rourke had at least one dramatic effect ― spurring a significant expansion in the number of Texans on the voting rolls. In recent years, the state had added an average of 100,000 new voters to the rolls. But between the ’16 presidential election and the close of registration this year, about 700,000 Texans registered to cast ballots.

Along with motivating new voters, the O’Rourke campaign amassed an army of volunteers to carry out pop up block walks and staff a turnout operation that included more than 700 field offices. In a state where Democrats have struggled to build infrastructure to boost lagging turnout, particularly among Hispanics, that trend leaves some operatives feeling optimistic about the future.

“This is a long-term game,” said Oscar Silva, director of the political action committee Battleground Texas, which aims to flip the state to blue by raising turnout. “It’s so exciting that it’s happening faster than any of us imagined.”

And even in defeat, O’Rourke walks away a rising star in his party who already has been mentioned as a potential presidential contender.

But none of the strides for Texas Democrats made possible by O’Rourke’s campaign changes the reality that the state remains under firm conservative control. 

“Democrats have to get up the morning after this election, no matter how depressed they are, and really understand that one of the things that really helped them this cycle is that they attracted a really strong candidate at the top of the ticket and some really strong candidates at the congressional level, and think about immediately building on that,” said Henson, the University of Texas political scientist. “2020 is going to be here before you know it.”

Topic: 

John A. Brown, a Civil War veteran, settled in Cottonwood County in 1878 on land that he homesteaded near Windom. After surviving many hardships, he became one of the county’s best-known citizens and contributed significantly to its welfare and advancement.

Brown was born in Symington, Ayrshire, Scotland on August 8, 1841, to John and Elizabeth Brown. After receiving some schooling in Scotland, he came to the United States in June 1856, when he was fifteen years old. Whether he immigrated alone or with family is unclear. He settled in West Salem, Wisconsin, where he became a naturalized citizen and lived until the outbreak of the Civil War.

On December 10, 1861, Brown enlisted at La Crosse, Wisconsin, in Company B of the Second Regiment of Wisconsin Volunteer Cavalry. Appointed corporal and then quartermaster sergeant, he served under Generals Grant and Sherman and took part in numerous raids and expeditions in Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Mississippi, as well as in the siege of Vicksburg.

After the surrender of General Robert E. Lee in 1865, Brown was sent under General Custer to Austin, Texas, to protect the southern border from warring factions in Mexico. He remained in Texas with his unit until November 16, 1865, when it was honorably discharged. They were paid off on December 10, 1865, and mustered out at Madison, Wisconsin.

After the war, Brown returned to West Salem, where he engaged in lumbering. In 1878, he moved to Cottonwood County, Minnesota, where he bought a farm outside Windom. While living in a granary during his first winter in his new home, he endured a severe winter.

On October 22, 1880, Brown married Edith C. Allen, daughter of Dr. Silas S. Allen, a pioneer physician. They had two sons and a daughter: S. A., Eugene, and Lucy. The family lived on the farm near Windom until 1890 when Brown, a Republican, was elected county auditor and they moved into Windom. He served as the county auditor and as deputy until 1910.

In 1912, Brown was elected as a county commissioner for two terms. In all, he was in public service for twenty-four years. This record of public service was remarkable for its longevity and also is a testimonial to the personal popularity of Brown. After his retirement, Brown’s son, S. A., became the county auditor.

Outside of his public service, Brown was involved in several local businesses, owning shares of the Farmer’s Co-operative Elevator Company in Windom and the State Bank in Storden. He also edited the two-volume History of Cottonwood and Watonwan Counties, published in Indianapolis in 1914.

In addition to his work, Brown served his community as a member of the Masonic Lodge and the Grand Army of the Republic (G. A. R.) where he was an adjutant. (Organized on December 3, 1874, the G.A.R. had fifty members and existed for only a few years in Windom, the only town in Cottonwood County where the organization flourished.

Toward the end of his life, Brown was physically weakened by hardening of the arteries. He died peacefully on March 25, 1925 as a result of a cerebral hemorrhage and is buried at Lakeview Cemetery, in Windom, Minnesota.

          Michigan 63, Norfolk State 44      Cache   Translate Page      
Michigan 63, Norfolk State 44 Alex Cook November 6th, 2018 at 11:12 PM
[Marc-Gregor Campredon]

In John Beilein's 800th career win, his Michigan team leaned on its defense and suffocated Norfolk State from the beginning en route to a comfortable, if ugly, 63-44 win. It took the Spartans (Not Those Spartans) over seven minutes to score their first points, which came on an unintentionally banked-in long two after Michigan had eased its way to an 11-0 lead. For most of the first half, the Wolverine defense was nearly impeccable, holding Norfolk State to just 0.37 points per possession and affording a misfiring Michigan offense a large margin of error.

Jon Teske was the standout for UM: not only did he lead the team in scoring (with 13 points) and rebounding (with 8, which was tied with Isaiah Livers), his defense in the paint was outstanding, as the 4 blocks he logged in the stat sheet is an insufficient record of how many shots he altered around the rim. After a swat as the help defender midway through the second half, BTN announcer Shon Morris remarked that he was "almost not fair," and it was hard to shake that feeling as he completely smothered any and every Norfolk State drive in his vicinity. Michigan's team will look quite different with Teske replacing Moe Wagner as the starting center, but early returns indicate that an already outstanding Michigan defense will be even more formidable with the surprisingly quick giant deterring opponents and swallowing up their shot attempts.

The wings mostly had rougher season debuts, and were the principal cause of Michigan's offensive troubles. Jordan Poole didn't hit a shot from the field, though he did have a few nice assists early on in the game before Norfolk State switched to its mix of zone defenses; Charles Matthews was active on the offensive glass and chipped in 12 points, but missed all four of his mostly wide open three-point attempts and - more worryingly - all five free throws; Ignas Brazdeikis had a rough first half in his first college game (featuring a rushed, contested two that was blocked after he'd conceded a layup, an airballed three, and a charge in transition) before making a few nice plays in the second. Livers, who played more minutes off the bench than the freshman did, had a nice game: protecting the rim, generating a few extra possessions on the boards, dishing out a few nice assists - including a drive and no-look dish to Brazdeikis for a dunk - and hitting a variety of shots.

That Michigan scored just 0.91 points per possession and still managed to win very comfortably speaks to how utterly overwhelmed Norfolk State was by what could be one of the best defenses in the country. The Wolverines did a good job of moving the ball against the zone and avoided turnovers for the most part (at least until late in the game, deep into garbage time), but just couldn't hit shots: 16/34 on twos (47%) against an undersized opponent and 6/26 on threes (23%). More worryingly, free throws were an issue even aside from Matthews, as Michigan hit just 13-29 of its free throws as a team (45%).

It didn't matter though. Even if most of Michigan's rotation was having an off night on the offensive end, their work on defense made those struggles irrelevant. The three guards, Zavier Simpson, Poole, and Eli Brooks (who played well on offense, hitting two threes and notching four assists to zero turnovers) were disruptive - forcing more turnovers than they were credited with in the box score - and did well to stay in front of Norfolk State's perimeter players. Most of the rare baskets they conceded came on tough shots, including multiple contested step-back twos. That first Spartan bucket was illustrative of simply how hard it was for them to score, as was their first made three, a turnaround deep buzzer-beater in the second half. In the end, Norfolk State scored 0.64 points per possession, a number that was better than all but two of the defensive performances over Michigan's 41 games last season.

Before the last five minutes of the game, when Beilein subbed out Teske for good and put in freshman big Brandon Johns, he went with a tight, eight-man rotation: the same starters as the exhibition (Simpson, Poole, Matthews, Brazdeikis, and Teske), the sixth man, Livers, third guard Brooks, and backup big man Austin Davis, who was active around the basket on the offensive end. By the end, all five freshmen had played, and the Wolverines closed with a lineup of David DeJulius, Adrien Nunez, walk-on CJ Baird, Johns, and Colin Castleton - so there will be no redshirts this season.

Once Michigan's strength of schedule ramps up, it's unlikely that opponents will look so hapless on offense, but it's clear that this team has a ton of potential on the defensive end of the floor - and that starts with Teske, who looked outstanding against an overmatched Norfolk State team, and Simpson, who disrupted plenty of possessions tonight. Michigan's shooting struggles may or may not portend a rough year in that regard (it's far too early to tell) but their defense may rack up plenty of wins either way.

Teske was the defensive MVP of the team. He has altered and blocked so many times that Norfolk pretty much stopped attacking the rim when he's on court. He showed good things on offense and can unlock some things for them once opposing bigs start respecting his jumper.

Austin Davis was solid and clearly is in the main rotation as a backup C while Johns and Castleton are developing. Castleton looked like a freshman on the court and it will take longer for him to develop to catch up.

I'm impressed by the defense overall sans a few moments where there's a breakdown but those are rare. They're going to need them as they figure out the offense. They lost a lot of production and shooting from Moe, MAAR and Duncan.

          Snap Kitchen Rolls Out Compostable Packaging      Cache   Translate Page      

The new packaging will help the company reduce its use of plastic by 500,000 pounds a year.

Snap Kitchen, a retailer of fresh and healthy food designed to fit one’s lifestyle, launched its efforts toward an even more sustainable business model with an all-market rollout of compostable, eco-friendly packaging. The new packaging will launch in 35 locations across Austin, Dallas, Houston and Philadelphia. The organization made the decision to shift toward utilizing plant-based packaging as a step in reducing its environmental impact.

By making the switch from the current recyclable plastic trays to the new packaging, Snap Kitchen will reduce its use of plastic by 500,000 pounds annually.

“We believe in clean eating for a cleaner earth and make every meal from scratch daily,” said Dale Easdon, CEO of Snap Kitchen, in a statement. “Since inception, our commitment to locally sourced products, responsibly sourced meats and ingredients containing zero additives or GMOs has been paramount. We’re thrilled to round out our commitment to our customers by offering an eco-friendly container to remain a sustainable and eco-conscious company.”

Snap Kitchen has partnered on the initiative with World Centric, a social and environmentally conscious manufacturer of compostable products that donates 25 percent of its profits to global grassroots social and environmental programs.

The organization’s movement toward utilizing an eco-friendly packaging creates a global impact and provides benefits for its consumers who are conscious about their carbon footprint. With the energy that it previously took to create one petroleum plastic tray, five new compostable trays can be produced, the company noted. Additionally, the change to compostable trays will reduce Snap Kitchen’s carbon emissions from packaging manufacturing by 66 percent.

According to the company, the packaging will be microwave and oven safe and each dish will be equipped with proper heating instructions on their packaging label. The one-time use containers can be easily discarded in a compost bin or included in a conventional garbage canister, as they contribute zero toxicity to the environment.

          8 Laws of Relationships That Jesus Used      Cache   Translate Page      

When Jesus had said this, He was troubled in spirit, and testified, "Truly, truly I say to you that one of you will betray Me." The disciples looked at one another, uncertain of whom He spoke. Now there was leaning against Jesus' bosom one of His disciples whom Jesus loved. Therefore Simon Peter motioned to him to ask who it was of whom He spoke. Leaning back against Jesus' bosom, he said to Him, "Lord, who is it?" Jesus answered, "It is he to whom I shall give a piece of bread when I have dipped it." When He had dipped the bread, He gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. After receiving the piece of bread, Satan entered him. Then Jesus said to him, "What you are going to do, do quickly" (John 13:21-27).

The following are eight laws of relationships observed in the life of Jesus.

The Law of Hospitality

Many people experience hospitality with you, but not all are your friends. Jesus was friendly to all people, but He was friends with only a few people.

The Law of Capacity

In the Bible, we read of all the people Jesus met with, prayed for, taught and healed. But there is an even longer list of all the people that Jesus did not meet with, pray over, teach or heal. Jesus had capacity limits due to His humanity. You too are finite and cannot give to everyone who would like to receive something from you.

The Law of Priority

For Jesus, His inner circle of three disciples plus a few friends and perhaps His family got the majority of His personal time and energy. He would lovingly help and serve people but then move on.

The Law of Seasonality

Very few relationships, if any, endure through every season of life. We should accept it and thank God for the deposits people make along life's journey.

The Law of Clarity

You know someone is driving in the wrong relationship lane when things cause you to avoid or dread him. At times like these, you need to have transition talks and closure conversations. A transition talk is an opportunity to lovingly but clearly define (or redefine) the lane where the relationship will be. A closure conversation is the talk we have to be clear that we are not talking anymore.

The Law of Idolize-Demonize

These are the people who love you one minute and hate you the next. This very thing happened to Jesus. The enthusiastic crowd shouting, "Hosanna, hosanna," soon became the hateful mob crying, "Crucify, crucify."

The Law of Economy

Relationships are like vehicles. Some get good gas mileage. They don't drain our energy and they keep moving forward without difficulty. Other relationships, however, get lousy gas mileage. These take a lot of time, energy and money, and don't seem to make much progress.

The same is true for each of us. Some people are amazingly good investments of time and energy. Others, however, are exhausting and never gain much if any relational momentum. {eoa}

Secretarul general al NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, a sosit marţi la Kabul, într-o vizită surpriză în Afganistan, se afirmă într-un comunicat al Alianţei Nord-Atlantice, citat de agenţia dpa preluată de
Agerpres .
Potrivit sursei, Stoltenberg şi o delegaţie de rang înalt se vor întâlni cu preşedintele afgan Ashraf Ghani, cu şeful executivului Abdullah Abdullah, precum şi cu comandantul forţelor internaţionale din Afganistan, generalul Austin S. Miller.
Vizita lui Stoltenberg survine într-un moment în care militanţii talibani şi-au intensificat atacurile împotriva forţelor de securitate pe cuprinsul ţării, provocând zilnic un mare număr de victime.
Atacurile forţelor afgane împotriva trupelor internaţionale au crescut de asemenea în ultimele săptămâni. Sâmbătă, un soldat american a fost ucis şi altul rănit în estul Afganistanului, în cursul a ceea ce a părut a fi un incident intern.
Luna trecută, un general american a fost rănit într-un atac împotriva complexului guvernatorului din oraşul Kandahar (sud). Generalul Miller, care era de asemenea prezent în acel loc, a scăpat nevătămat.

'Bohemian Rhapsody': 11 diferencias con la historia real de Queen#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Como ya os conté en mi crítica de la película, quedé completamente enamorado de 'Bohemian Rhapsody', la electrizante e intensa carta de amor que Bryan Singer ha dedicado al que, probablemente, sea el grupo más influyente de la historia del rock: los eternos Queen. Pero mi satisfacción frente al producto final no es incompatible con un punto crítico hacia su mayor flaqueza: la falta de rigor.

Porque el filme, aunque esté protagonizado por un Rami Malek que se ha transformado en cuerpo y alma en el mismísimo Freddie Mercury, se ha permitido tomar algunas licencias creativas —la mayor parte de ellas en favor del drama, la reducción de la calificación por edades y el blanqueamiento de la leyenda— que, seguramente, espinarán a los fans más puristas y que hemos recopilado en el siguiente artículo. ¡Ojo con los spoilers!

La formación del grupo

Aunque Bryan Singer y su guionista Anthony McCarten lo hayan reducido a un momento puntual, casi anecdótico, en el que los astros se alinearon y dieron lugar a la magia, la formación de Queen fue mucho más complicada de lo que se ve en 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.

En la película, un desconocido Mercury charla brevemente con Brian May y Roger Taylor después de que el cantante y bajista de Smile, Tim Staffell, dejase el grupo de forma repentina tras un concierto y les impresiona cantando un tema acapella en el parking. Algo más suficiente para que admitan al bueno de Fred en su formación.

Pero la realidad es bien distinta. Mercury era un gran fan de Smile y un viejo amigo de Staffell, y pasó una larga temporada dando la matraca a May y Taylor para que le admitiesen en el grupo; algo que sucedió tras la marcha de su vocalista en 1970.

La llegada de John Deacon a Queen

Al igual que la incorporación de Mercury a Smile, el desembarco de John Deacon en Queen mostrado en 'Bohemian Rhapsody' tampoco es fiel a la realidad. En el filme, el bajista aparece tocando en el primer concierto del grupo en 1970, pero no fue hasta 1971 que debutase tras haber probado —y descartado— a otros tres músicos que pretendían ocupar la vacante en las cuatro cuerdas.

Proms5wxnepjazwp5xv4yd

La existencia de un tal "Ray Foster"

Uno de los momentos más sorprendentes y divertidos de 'Bohemian Rhapsody' se encuentra en la secuencia en la que el grupo se reúne con Ray Foster, el ejecutivo de EMI Records interpretado por un Mike Myers hasta arriba de maquillaje. Pero susodicho Foster no representa a una persona real. Al menos, no del todo.

El personaje de Myers está basado en Roy Featherstone, quien sí fue directivo de EMI Records, además de un gran fan de Queen. Aunque esto no quita para que, igual que puede verse en la película, considerase que 'Bohemian Rhapsody' era un tema demasiado largo como para ponerlo en la radio.

En lo que respecta a las intimidades de Freddie Mercury, 'Bohemian Rhapsody' también es la gran fiesta de la elipsis y las medias verdades, y un buen ejemplo de esto es una relación con Mary Austin que, según Singer y compañía, tuvo su detonante la misma noche en la que el vocalista fue admitido en Smile.

La realidad es muy distinta, porque según reveló él mismo, Brian May estuvo saliendo con Austin una temporada antes del primer encuentro de esta con Mercury en la tienda Biba —representado en la película—, y este pidió permiso a May para pedirle salir antes de dar el paso.

La relación entre Freddie y Jim Hutton

De igual modo, la relación entre Freddie y Jim, su pareja durante los años previos a su muerte, también está distorsionada en 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. Ni Hutton formaba parte del servicio de la mansión de Mercury, ni se conocieron durante una de las famosas fiestas del artista. Realmente, Jim Hutton era peluquero en el hotel Savoy y conoció al líder de Queen en un club nocturno.

La vida privada de Freddie Mercury

Uno de los temas que la película de Brian Singer toca más de soslayo es el de la vida privada de Freddie Mercury. Salvo pequeñas y muy sutiles referencias al abuso de sustancias y a la desmadrada vida nocturna del cantante, todo queda prácticamente en la sombra en beneficio de una calificación por edades para mayores de 13 años —porque, no olvidemos, estamos ante una producción de estudio—.

Además, 'Bohemian Rhapsody' tampoco acierta en demasía tratando la sexualidad y vida amorosa de un Mercury que, al igual que apunta la versión de Malek en la cinta, sí tenía una faceta bisexual —mantuvo relaciones con otras mujeres además de Mary, como la actriz alemana Barbara Valentin—, y que jamás reveló su orientación sexual a sus padres, a quienes presentó a Jim Hutton como su jardinero.

Freddie Mercury

La separación de Queen

Volviendo a lo estrictamente musical, pese a lo que apunta 'Bohemian Rhapsody', Queen nunca llegaron a separarse; hecho que el filme introduce tomando como excusa la firma de un contrato de 4 millones de dólares por parte de Mercury para realizar dos discos en solitario.

A principios de 1983, al igual que sugiere el Freddie de Rami Malek en la película, todos los miembros de la banda estaban agotados del ritmo de giras y grabaciones, e incluso se plantearon tomar un descanso, pero a finales de ese mismo año comenzaron a trabajar en su álbum 'The Works'.

El álbum en solitario

En 1985, Freddie Mercury lanzó su primer álbum en solitario, titulado 'Mr. Bad Guy'; pero lejos de lo que nos cuenta Bryan Singer, este** no fue el primer trabajo individual de un miembro de Queen** —ni mucho menos resultó ser tan traumático para la formación—. Cuatro años antes, en 1981, Roger Taylor lanzó su primer disco en solitario 'Fun in Space', al que seguiría 'Stranger Frontier' en 1984.

La reunión en el Live Aid

'Bohemian Rhapsody' nos pinta el alucinante concierto que dio Queen en el marco del Live Aid de 1985 como una reunión del grupo tras una larga temporada de inactividad de la que tendrían que recuperarse. Nada más lejos de la realidad, porque la banda había dado a luz su álbum 'The Works' el año anterior, y había estado presentándolo en una gira mundial hasta un mes y medio antes del bolo benéfico en Wembley.

Mercury

El diagnóstico de Freddie

Favoreciendo el componente dramático de la película, 'Bohemian Rhapsody' nos muestra cómo Freddie Mercury descubre que ha contraído el VIH antes del concierto del Live Aid, revelándoselo a sus compañeros de Queen en una emotiva escena. Aunque la fecha exacta de esto continúe siendo inexacta, todo apunta a que Mercury conoció su diagnóstico entre los años 1986 y 1987.

El pos-Live Aid y otras inexactitudes

El fan acérrimo de Queen se encontrará en la película de Bryan Singer con un buen número de inexactitudes históricas —como fechas de creación alteradas de alguno de los temas más emblemáticos— que harán que se les atragante una experiencia que, además, podrían considerar incompleta.

El fin de la función tras el Live Aid de 1985 deja al legado de Queen en la gran pantalla huérfano de algunos de los grandes momentos de Mercury y compañía —hubiese sido maravilloso verle entonar 'Barcelona' junto a Montserrat Caballé—, y de algunos datos interesantes que ni el pequeño resumen previo a los créditos detalla, como la retirada de Deacon de la música, el hecho de que Jim Hutton también contrajo VIH —aunque falleció en 2010— o que Mary Austin continúa viviendo a día de hoy en la casa que Freddie Mercury la legó tras su muerte.

Dreamworks confirma el reboot de 'Shrek' y anuncia el de 'El gato con botas' #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Era una simple cuestión de tiempo. 'Shrek' fue la saga que más alegrías económicas dio a Dreamworks y hace un par de años ya se anunció que estaban preparando su regreso a la gran pantalla. La noticia ahora es la confirmación del reboot y que además la compañía también trabaja en un relanzamiento de las aventuras de 'El gato con botas'.

Los proyectos nacen como consecuencia directa de la compra de Dreamworks por parte de Comcast, empresa que ha cedido las riendas de ambos títulos a Chris Meledandri, el jefe de Illumination Entertainment, quien tiene claro que una de las claves del éxito de ambas películas -poca broma con 'El gato con botas', que costó 130 millones de dólares y luego recaudó 554- es la participación vocal de Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy y Antonio Banderas y que le gustaría seguir contando con ellos:

Cuando recuerdas esa interpretaciones ves que fueron geniales y es cierto que podrías intentar vender una reinvención total, pero a mí me gusta satisfacer mis propios sentimientos nostálgicos de querer volver a esas caracterizaciones. El reto para nosotros ha sido encontrar algo que no se sienta como simplemente otra entrega dentro de una franquicia.

Por ahora, Meledandri no ha dado con la clave para dar solución a ese reto, lo cual no ha impedido que lleve ya un tiempo trabajando en ambos proyectos y tiene claro que es una cuestión de tiempo que volvamos a ver a Shrek y El gato con botas en la gran pantalla. La duda que me queda es hasta qué punto será paciente Comcast, que da la sensación que en parte está buscando una excusa para volver a ver merchandising como churros.

Recordemos que ya en 2016 se fichó a Michael McCullers, guionista de las dos secuelas de Austin Powers -saga que pronto tendrá una entrega más según Myers-, para sacar adelante 'Shrek 5', pero nada más se ha sabido al respecto desde entonces. Me da que McCullers no logró dar con la clave y que Meledandri estará buscando a otro guionista que resuelva el problema que tiene entre manos.

          How to Handle a Real Estate Closing      Cache   Translate Page      

When you buy residential or commercial property, you have to be ready to close on it. Before you do, it’s important to consider what needs to happen. Before you sign at any real estate closing Austin TX residents will often turn to a lawyer. It ensures that you have considered everything.

Read the Contract

You need to review the details of the contract before you sign on the dotted line. The contract will tell you about your ability to address any issues with the property after the sale. For example, if you find that something within the inspection was falsified, you may have the ability to sue the seller. Then again, you could be signing away your ability to do so. As such, you need to make sure that you are reading through all of the fine print.

Know the Process

There is a process with the closing. You may need to bring certain documents to the table with you. You may also have to pay or get money back at the closing. If you’re not sure what is going on and when, it’s important to ask questions. This way, you can be prepared every step of the way.

Work with a Lawyer

A lawyer can make it easier for you to close on a property. They will be able to review your contract and make sure that the wording is beneficial to you. It can also be helpful to have a lawyer walk you through the process so you can be sure you are doing what needs to be done every step of the way. If something isn’t right, a lawyer can step in.

A real estate closing is an important component to buying or selling a property. When you’re closing, it’s good to have legal representation at your side.

Oh man, this is one I'm gonna have to force myself to watch. I've only seen the original in the last couple of years and found it pretty good, nothing earth-shaking. So a complete artsy-fartsy re-imagining of it is not setting my brain on fire. But Johnson was really good in BAD TIMES AT EL ROYALE, so that helps, and anyway, I want to be a part of the conversation. I'm prolly not alone that as I get older, I only wanna pay money on the big screen for the big FX type movies or stuff that appeals to my sensibilities. I dunno if this is gonna be one or the other of those but since I live in Austin, TX I might as well go check it out while I have the chance. That's half the reason I moved here, damn it.
          Michigan 63, Norfolk State 44      Cache   Translate Page      
Michigan 63, Norfolk State 44 Alex Cook November 6th, 2018 at 11:12 PM
[Marc-Gregor Campredon]

In John Beilein's 800th career win, his Michigan team leaned on its defense and suffocated Norfolk State from the beginning en route to a comfortable, if ugly, 63-44 win. It took the Spartans (Not Those Spartans) over seven minutes to score their first points, which came on an unintentionally banked-in long two after Michigan had eased its way to an 11-0 lead. For most of the first half, the Wolverine defense was nearly impeccable, holding Norfolk State to just 0.37 points per possession and affording a misfiring Michigan offense a large margin of error.

Jon Teske was the standout for UM: not only did he lead the team in scoring (with 13 points) and rebounding (with 8, which was tied with Isaiah Livers), his defense in the paint was outstanding, as the 4 blocks he logged in the stat sheet is an insufficient record of how many shots he altered around the rim. After a swat as the help defender midway through the second half, BTN announcer Shon Morris remarked that he was "almost not fair," and it was hard to shake that feeling as he completely smothered any and every Norfolk State drive in his vicinity. Michigan's team will look quite different with Teske replacing Moe Wagner as the starting center, but early returns indicate that an already outstanding Michigan defense will be even more formidable with the surprisingly quick giant deterring opponents and swallowing up their shot attempts.

The wings mostly had rougher season debuts, and were the principal cause of Michigan's offensive troubles. Jordan Poole didn't hit a shot from the field, though he did have a few nice assists early on in the game before Norfolk State switched to its mix of zone defenses; Charles Matthews was active on the offensive glass and chipped in 12 points, but missed all four of his mostly wide open three-point attempts and - more worryingly - all five free throws; Ignas Brazdeikis had a rough first half in his first college game (featuring a rushed, contested two that was blocked after he'd conceded a layup, an airballed three, and a charge in transition) before making a few nice plays in the second. Livers, who played more minutes off the bench than the freshman did, had a nice game: protecting the rim, generating a few extra possessions on the boards, dishing out a few nice assists - including a drive and no-look dish to Brazdeikis for a dunk - and hitting a variety of shots.

That Michigan scored just 0.91 points per possession and still managed to win very comfortably speaks to how utterly overwhelmed Norfolk State was by what could be one of the best defenses in the country. The Wolverines did a good job of moving the ball against the zone and avoided turnovers for the most part (at least until late in the game, deep into garbage time), but just couldn't hit shots: 16/34 on twos (47%) against an undersized opponent and 6/26 on threes (23%). More worryingly, free throws were an issue even aside from Matthews, as Michigan hit just 13-29 of its free throws as a team (45%).

It didn't matter though. Even if most of Michigan's rotation was having an off night on the offensive end, their work on defense made those struggles irrelevant. The three guards, Zavier Simpson, Poole, and Eli Brooks (who played well on offense, hitting two threes and notching four assists to zero turnovers) were disruptive - forcing more turnovers than they were credited with in the box score - and did well to stay in front of Norfolk State's perimeter players. Most of the rare baskets they conceded came on tough shots, including multiple contested step-back twos. That first Spartan bucket was illustrative of simply how hard it was for them to score, as was their first made three, a turnaround deep buzzer-beater in the second half. In the end, Norfolk State scored 0.64 points per possession, a number that was better than all but two of the defensive performances over Michigan's 41 games last season.

Before the last five minutes of the game, when Beilein subbed out Teske for good and put in freshman big Brandon Johns, he went with a tight, eight-man rotation: the same starters as the exhibition (Simpson, Poole, Matthews, Brazdeikis, and Teske), the sixth man, Livers, third guard Brooks, and backup big man Austin Davis, who was active around the basket on the offensive end. By the end, all five freshmen had played, and the Wolverines closed with a lineup of David DeJulius, Adrien Nunez, walk-on CJ Baird, Johns, and Colin Castleton - so there will be no redshirts this season.

Once Michigan's strength of schedule ramps up, it's unlikely that opponents will look so hapless on offense, but it's clear that this team has a ton of potential on the defensive end of the floor - and that starts with Teske, who looked outstanding against an overmatched Norfolk State team, and Simpson, who disrupted plenty of possessions tonight. Michigan's shooting struggles may or may not portend a rough year in that regard (it's far too early to tell) but their defense may rack up plenty of wins either way.

Teske was the defensive MVP of the team. He has altered and blocked so many times that Norfolk pretty much stopped attacking the rim when he's on court. He showed good things on offense and can unlock some things for them once opposing bigs start respecting his jumper.

Austin Davis was solid and clearly is in the main rotation as a backup C while Johns and Castleton are developing. Castleton looked like a freshman on the court and it will take longer for him to develop to catch up.

I'm impressed by the defense overall sans a few moments where there's a breakdown but those are rare. They're going to need them as they figure out the offense. They lost a lot of production and shooting from Moe, MAAR and Duncan.

Eli Brooks looked good. Teske is a player. Poole had some nice passes. And most importantly, the D is still a strength. 

Beyond that? Ugly, with embarrassing free throw shooting and weak 3pt shooting. And the less said about the freshmen, the better.

Beilein will coach them up, but he has a lot to do.

I wasn't able to watch much but Livers looked excellent in the few minutes (for 5 min or so of the second half) I saw.  Back-to-back plays in which he drove and dished as mentioned here and then the next play ran the break for another assist.  May have been the opponent, but he looks aggressive and comfortable with the ball in his hands as compared to last year.

Not too worried about the shooting overall, other than Matthews FTs. Woof man. 

The 3 pt struggles came mostly from the two guys I would expect to be the best on the team in Poole and Iggy.  So that isn't going to be a regular thing from them.

Impressive that Teske was able to go 27 minutes and block 4 shots with only 3 fouls. He may play more than anyone expected this season.

Biggest concern is this team scoring against zones.  We'll regularly be putting three guys out there that can't shoot (as opposed to two guys last year) and that makes beating a zone more difficult.  Eli Brooks might be the key there.  If he can spell Z some when opponents are going zone, it would get three shooters back on the floor.

I would also expect to see more Iggy at the 3 and Livers at the 4 against zones.

This team will be very good once again.

Oskar Blues - 1.5 Million Cans and CountingFrom Oskar Blues:

Community has been at the heart of Can'd Aid’s mission from the beginning. In 2013, devastating floods hit Colorado – sending Can’d Aid into high gear both in rebuilding efforts and helping to get local businesses and residents back on their feet.

Shortly thereafter, TOWNS, and the concept of “People Powered Do-Goodery” was born – rooted in the belief that by creating opportunities to give back in communities nationwide, Can'd Aid can shift the way people build and engage with their communities.

Can’d Aid still responds quickly and passionately to help towns across the US rebuild after disasters – from mucking and gutting ravaged homes, to shipping clean canned water where it’s needed most. With the help of Oskar Blues Brewery and Ball Corporation, Can'd Aid has donated over 1.5 million cans of drinking water to date. In fact, due to Hurricanes Florence and Michael, as well as a citywide water boil in Austin, TX - the canning line has been working overtime.

          Violência doméstica é tema de palestra para professores em Nova Iguaçu      Cache   Translate Page      

“Como professora, já ouvi muitos relatos de alunos sobre violência doméstica. O caso que mais me chocou foi a de uma menina de 9 anos que sofreu um AVC (acidente vascular cerebral) e ficou em coma durante quatro meses após sofrer abuso sexual de um homem que era amigo da família”. O triste relato é da professora Maria Regina Barbosa Duarte, atualmente funcionária da E. M. Rui Barbosa, em Austin. Ela é uma das mais de 130 educadoras da rede municipal que participaram, na manhã desta terça-feira (06), de mais uma capacitação do Projeto Sementes da Paz, uma parceria da Prefeitura de Nova Iguaçu, por meio da Escola de Governo, com o Tribunal de Justiça do Rio de Janeiro.

O Projeto Sementes da Paz teve início em abril e desde então vem capacitando orientadores pedagógicos, diretores escolares e professores. Mais de 800 pessoas já assistiram às palestras realizadas na Casa do Professor, sede da Secretaria Municipal de Educação. Desta vez o público presente assistiu à palestra da psicóloga Joelma Perrut, que atua junto ao Juizado de Violência Doméstica da Comarca de Nova Iguaçu.

“A violência doméstica é aquela praticada no ambiente familiar, mas não inclui somente a família. Ela pode partir de um parente, uma empregada doméstica. Ela é caracterizada pelo poder e a submissão, em que o agressor aproveita a força que tem e da fragilidade de alguém”, explica Joelma Perrut.

Psicóloga do Departamento de Ações Pró-Sustentabilidade do Tribunal de Justiça do Rio de Janeiro e coordenadora do Projeto Sementes da Paz, Marcia Fayad conta que o melhor lugar para contribuir na concretização de uma política nacional de enfrentamento e combate à violência doméstica é a sala de aula. Por isso, centenas de educadores estão sendo capacitados.

“Em muitos casos os professores não entendem que o comportamento violento do aluno pode ser reflexo da violência doméstica. Sem perceber, a criança reproduz aquilo que ela vê em casa como o certo. Quanto mais cedo se faz essa prevenção, mais fácil a criança entende que é a partir do diálogo que é possível ter um entendimento melhor do que é o respeito”, adverte a coordenadora.

A secretária municipal de Educação, Maria Virgínia Andrade Rocha, agradeceu a parceria entre a Prefeitura de Nova Iguaçu e o Tribunal de Justiça. Segundo ela, esta união tem proporcionado discutir um tema que afeta diretamente milhares de crianças.

“Os professores que participaram das palestras serão multiplicadores dentro das unidades escolares. Desta maneira é possível atingir a todos os educadores”, garante a secretária, que promete dar sequência às capacitações. “Vamos continuar com esta parceria e trazer mais palestras sobre outros temas no ano que vem”.

Utah Mayor Brent Taylor Killed in Afghanistan 'Insider Attack'
John Bacon
USA TODAY
10:20 a.m. ET Nov. 4, 2018

A Utah mayor was killed in Afghanistan during an "insider attack" while serving with the Utah National Guard in Kabul, the second deadly such attack in the war-torn country in less than a month.

The Defense Department said one service member was killed and another wounded Saturday by a member of the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces. Initial reports indicated the attacker was immediately killed by other Afghan Forces, the Pentagon said.

Utah Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox identified the dead service member as Brent Taylor, 39, a married father of seven and mayor of North Ogden, Utah.

"I hate this. I’m struggling for words," Cox said in a Facebook post. "I love Mayor Taylor, his amazing wife Jennie and his seven sweet kids. Utah weeps for them today."

The Pentagon said the attack was under investigation and released no other details.

Last month an Afghan bodyguard opened fire at a meeting in Kandahar province  between local leaders and the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan. Three senior provincial officials were killed and three Americans were wounded, although Gen. Austin Miller was unharmed.

Taliban militants claimed responsibility for that attack.

Taylor has served as mayor of North Ogden's 17,000 residents since 2013. He also served more than a decade as an officer in the National Guard, including seven years on active duty. He previously served two tours in the Iraq War and in Afghanistan. He began another a one-year tour in Afghanistan in January.

Taylor, a doctoral candidate in international relations at the University of Utah, frequently posted photos from the war zone on social media. He was consistently upbeat, even noting in an April post that "I absolutely love the dedicated US and Afghan soldiers I serve with every day. The dedication of the Afghan soldiers is especially inspiring."

His most recent post, Oct. 28, expressed admiration for millions of Afghans who braved threats and attacks to vote in parliamentary elections last month.

"As the USA gets ready to vote in our own election next week, I hope everyone back home exercises their precious right to vote," he said. "And that whether the Republicans or the Democrats win, that we all remember that we have far more as Americans that unites us than divides us. ... God Bless America."

“Brent was a hero, a patriot, a wonderful father, and a dear friend. News of his death in Afghanistan is devastating. My prayers and love are with Jennie and his 7 young children. His service will always be remembered.”

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, called Taylor a "hero, a wonderful father and a dear friend." Utah Gov. Gary Herbert said he was "heartbroken" at hearing the news that a Utah soldier had been killed.

Herbert planned a news conference for later Sunday to discuss the tragedy.

Cox called Taylor's death "devastating" and, referring to Taylor's elections Facebook post, asked Utah residents to honor the mayor by voting on Tuesday.

"This war has once again cost us the best blood of a generation," Cox said. "Thank you for your sacrifice, my friend."

          SundanceTV exibe filmes da seleção do Festival de Sundance a partir deste sábado      Cache   Translate Page      
A SundanceTV vai exibir entre 10 e 12 de novembro uma seleção de filmes que fizeram parte da programação do Festival de Sundance nos últimos anos. A maratona começa às 16h30 do dia 10, sábado, e termina às 16h30 do dia 12, segunda-feira.

Destaques:

Richard Linklater: Dream is Destiny / EUA / Diretores: Louis Black e Karen Bernstein


Destacando um dos mais inovadores diretores americanos, este filme mostra o caminho percorrido pelo autor, desde suas raízes de cidade pequena do Texas até a sua calorosa recepção no circuito de prêmios. Muito antes de dirigir Boyhood: Da Infância à Juventude, o intenso desejo de criar de Richard Linklater alimentou o seu trabalho fora do circuito de Hollywood. Em vez de sair do Texas, ele escolheu colaborar com artistas com mentalidade semelhante à sua, criando filmes modestos e de baixo orçamento no estilo DIY (Faça Você Mesmo). Os diretores Louis Black e Karen Bernstein tecem discussões esclarecedoras com Linklater em meio a depoimentos de atores, de gente que faz parte de sua equipe desde o início e de profissionais do setor. Ao longo de sua carreira, Linklater trabalhou com um mesmo núcleo de artistas, elevando o perfil tanto dos atores como o do cinema independente em pleno desenvolvimento de Austin.

Elenco: Julie Delpy, Ethan Hawke, Sahsa Lane, Shia LaBeouf

10/11, 16h30; 12/11, 15h10
A Vida Sem Grace / EUA / Diretor: James C Strouse


Este filme contemplativo e subestimado dramatiza a crise silenciosa que atinge Stanley, um jovem do meio-Oeste casado com uma fuzileira naval que serve no Iraque e pai de duas meninas. Stanley fica viúvo de maneira repentina e inesperada quando sua esposa, Grace, morre em ação. Ele não consegue compartilhar a arrasadora notícia com suas filhas. Em vez de contar imediatamente, Stanley internaliza seu desespero e viaja com as meninas. Nesse meio tempo, tenta organizar uma enxurrada de sentimentos conflituosos e tumultuados a respeito da guerra e tenta decidir como dar a terrível notícia. A viagem inevitavelmente terminará com o funeral de Grace. A Vida Sem Grace recebeu o Prêmio do Público – Drama e também o Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award no Sundance Film Festival de 2007.

Elenco: John Cusack, Emily Churchill, Rebecca Spence

11/11, 18h45; 12/11, 7h

Na Mira Do Chefe / EUA / Diretor: Martin McDonagh

Colin Farrell e o indicado ao Oscar® Ralph Fiennes protagonizam a nervosa e ultrajante comédia de malandragem cheia de ação que os críticos chamaram de “descontroladamente divertida”. 

Elenco:  Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Ralph Fiennes, Clémence Poésy 

10/11, 22h

Jacqueline Argentine / EUA / Diretor e Roteirista: Bernardo Britto


Um cineasta nos apresenta ao tema do seu documentário - a bela Jacqueline Dumont, uma jovem francesa que alega ter descoberto uma conspiração secreta de assassinato. Embora não tivesse certeza da veracidade da excêntrica Jacqueline, o cineaste, ainda assim, recruta alguns estagiários e ruma para o retiro holístico, na Argentina, onde ela se esconde, para explorar suas afirmações e filmar sua história. Após a chegada, o cineasta começa a duvidar se a sua empreitada vale mesmo a pena, mas encontra razões para esperar que possa realmente estar capturando algo grande, algo real, com seu filme cada vez mais improvisado. Movido pelo desempenho secamente espirituoso de Wyatt Cenac como o cineasta sem nome, Jacqueline (Argentine) é uma discreta e divertida desventura, que também explora criteriosamente a relação ambígua de um diretor com o seu ofício e continuamente vira a sua base de thriller político de cabeça para baixo. A primeira direção de um longa-metragem de Bernardo Britto (vencedor do Prêmio do Júri no Sundance Film Festival de 2014 com seu curta Yearbook) faz um novo uso do formato documentário para criar um filme lúdico em forma e conteúdo que reflete as incertezas e a esperança inerentes a todo esforço artístico.

Elenco:  Camille Rutherford, Wyatt Cenac, James Benson, Martin Anderson, Sarah Willis e Enrique Dura

11/11, 20h20; 12/11, 3h35
  
Kumiko, a Caçadora de Tesouros/ EUA / Diretor: David Zellner


Uma cansada mulher japonesa se convence de que uma sacola de dinheiro enterrada e perdida em um filme de ficção – Fargo, dos irmãos Coen - seja, de fato, real. Com um mapa do tesouro toscamente desenhado e pouca preparação, ela foge de sua vida estruturada em Tóquio e embarca em uma busca imprudente pela tundra do Minnesota, em busca de sua mítica fortuna. Entre os caracteres estranhos, mas benignos, que ela encontra no caminho são um guia de turismo nascido de novo e um xerife assistente desajeitado, mas solícito. Charmoso, excêntrico e inspirado, Kumiko, a Caçadora de Tesouros é um intrigante road movie sobre a obsessão mórbida. O filme transporta os espectadores para a psique cada vez mais desgastada da sua determinada protagonista, e é um delicado retrato observado de perto da lenta implosão mental de uma mulher. Rinko Kikuchi no papel-título diz muito pouco, mas sua linguagem corporal, um lento arrastar debruçado, é incrivelmente eloquente por si só. Kumiko, a Caçadora de Tesouros recebeu o Prêmio Especial do Júri - Dramático no Sundance Film Festival de 2014.

Elenco:  Rinko Kikuchi, Nobuyuki Katsube, Shirley Venard

10/11, 18h10; 11/11, 15h05, 12/11, 13h15

Dinosaur 13 / EUA / Diretor: Todd Douglas Miller

Quando o paleontólogo Peter Larson e sua equipe do Black Hills Institute fizeram a maior descoberta de dinossauros do mundo em 1990, sabiam que aquele seria o achado de toda uma vida; os maiores e mais completos restos mortais de um Tyrannosaurus Rex já encontrados. Mas durante uma batalha de 10 anos com o governo dos EUA, grandes museus, tribos indígenas e paleontólogos, eles lutam não apenas para manter o seu dinossauro, mas também por sua liberdade. Dinosaur 13 narra uma saga sem precedentes na história americana e detalha a batalha feroz para possuir um tesouro de 65 milhões de anos de idade. Com sua grande habilidade, o cineasta Todd Miller escava camada após camada, expondo a emoção humana em um conto dramático que é tão complexo quanto fascinante.
O filme foi nomeado para o Grande Prêmio do Júri - Documentário no Sundance Film Festival de 2014.

Elenco:  Stan Adelstein, Lanice Archer, Robert Bakker, Vincent Black Feather

11/11, 13h20; 12/11, 11h30

Bob and the Trees / EUA e França/ Diretor: Diego Ongaro

É pleno inverno na área rural de Massachusetts. Bob, um lenhador de 50 anos de idade com um fraco por golfe e gangsta rap, luta para fazer face às despesas em um setor difícil e implacável. Quando um investimento malfeito ameaça os negócios da família e a sua amada vaca é ferida, Bob começa a ouvir os instintos de sua consciência cada vez mais tenebrosa. Bob and the Trees é uma imersão em uma vida tranquila de isolamento e desespero. O filme é uma versão expandida de um curta-metragem de 2011 do mesmo nome, e o protagonista, Bob Tarasuk, é um ator não profissional - e um lenhador na vida real. Com um sentido primordial de autenticidade e uma narrativa poderosa que se baseia claramente nos eventos da vida real, o filme é um exame do comportamento arrogante em face do fracasso pessoal. Bob and the Trees foi uma Seleção Oficial do Sundance Film Festival de 2015.

Elenco: Bob Tarasuk, Matt Gallagher, Polly MacIntyre

12/11, 5h15

Dreamcatcher / Reino Unido e EUA / Diretor: Kim Longinotto


No West Side de Chicago, nas primeiras horas da manhã, uma van de doze assentos com as palavras “Dreamcatcher Foundation” estampada em todos os seus lados circula pelas ruas pouco iluminadas. As duas mulheres na van são Brenda e Stephanie, sobreviventes do comércio do sexo. A van diminui a velocidade à medida que se aproxima de uma jovem. Brenda se inclina para fora e chama, “Ei linda, você precisa de alguns preservativos?” Essa cena de abertura remete o espectador imediatamente para o mundo escuro, angustiante e incrivelmente comovente do documentário Dreamcatcher. Este retrato íntimo examina uma comunidade problemática pelos olhos de uma de suas sobreviventes, Brenda Myers-Powell. Brenda cresceu em Chicago, virou uma prostituta adolescente, tornou-se dependente de drogas e, anos mais tarde, depois de escapar do seu modo de vida, criou The Dreamcatcher Foundation para ajudar as meninas a aprender que não precisam usar o sexo para sobreviver. Sua experiência, combinada com sua irresistível personalidade, faz dela um farol de esperança, colocando-a numa posição única para ajudar outras mulheres traficadas a recuperarem suas vidas. Dreamcatcher recebeu o Prêmio de Direção – Documentário de Cinema Mundial no Sundance Film Festival de 2015.

WestportNow.com Image
In a thrilling, dramatic — and wet — first round state tournament game, the Staples boys soccer team today battled back from a 1-0 deficit against Darien. Mauricio Inglada coolly finished a long ball from Vaughan Sealey to draw the Wreckers level with just 18 minutes to play. The teams fought through 20 minutes of overtime, then headed to penalty kicks. All five Westport shooters — Suriya Balaji, Austin Sholes, Nick DiMasi, Lefty Penderakis and Rob Diorio hammered theirs home. The fifth Darien kicker missed high — and Staples, ranked 10th, moves on to the second round. They face No. 7 Cheshire away on Thursday. Pictured: Goalkeeper Ry Cohen leads the celebration after the end of penalty kicks. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Armelle Daniels for WestportNow.com

          OLAĞANÜSTÜ bir film “Bohemian Rhapsody”      Cache   Translate Page      

GÖZLER ÜZERİMDEYKEN BEN ASLA DETONE OLMAM

OLAĞANÜSTÜ bir film “Bohemian Rhapsody”...

Kızım Gülümsün, torunum Sinan Ali ve ben... Üç nesil bir arada izledik. Üç neslimizi de etkiledi.

Bu kadar sevdiğim Freddie Mercury’yi hiç tanımadığımı anladım.

Onun kedi düşkünlüğünü, hele hele sokak kedilerine düşkünlüğünü hiç bilmiyordum.

Filmin başlarında söylediği şu cümle beni çok düşündürdü:

“Bütün gözler üzerimdeyken asla detone olmam...”

Şarkı söylediğiniz insanlara saygıyı, mükemmeli aramayı ve hak edilmiş narsizmi bir cümle içinde özetleyen bu sözü hiç unutmayacağım.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” şarkısının içinde geçen “Bismillah” nidasını plak yapımcılarına karşı savunması beni çok etkiledi.

Haber içinde kalmış manşetlik iki haber

BİTMEYEN BİR AŞKTAN GERİYE KALAN ÜÇ DERS

“BOHEMIAN Rhapsody” bir süperstarın hayatı, ama ondan da büyük bir aşk filmi. Freddie Mercury’nin hayatının tek kadını olan Mary Austin’e olan aşkını anlatıyor.

Hayatına heteroseksüel olarak başlayıp biseksüel olarak devam eden ve gay olarak bitiren bir erkek bir kadına âşık olabilir mi diyeceksiniz...

Filmi seyredin ve kendiniz karar verin.

Ben şunu gördüm.

BİR: “Büyük bir aşk bitse bile daha büyük bir arkadaşlığa dönüşebilir.”

İKİ: “Araya başkalarının girmesi, sadakatin büyüklüğünü ortadan kaldırmaz.’

ÜÇ: “Biseksüel karakterde dahi bir erkeği kadına bağlayan duygu, erkeğe bağlayan duygudan çok daha kuvvetlidir.”

Freddie Mercury biseksüeldi. Ama hayatının sevgilisi Mary Austin’di...

Sevgilisinin başka bir erkekten olan çocuğunun vaftiz babasıydı. Sonunda tüm servetini ona bıraktı.

Zerdüşt’tü...

Öldükten sonra külleri 2 yıl boyunca, ebedi sevgilisi Mary Austin’in evinde kaldı. O küllerin daha sonra nereye konduğu hâlâ bilinmiyor...

Biz manyak diyoruz da onlar niye büyük diyor
BUGÜN dünyanın en ünlü şehirlerinden St. Petersburg işte böyle bir vizyonla kuruldu.
Ama o şehri kuran vizyoner adama biz Türkler “Deli” yani biraz zorlarsan “Manyak Petro” deriz.

          Bitten: Victoria's Shadow – review      Cache   Translate Page      
Director: Grant Austin Waldman

Release date: 2001

Contains spoilers

The streaming video industry has pluses and minuses due to its insatiable need to promote new content. On a plus side it will plumb the depths of various film industries, offering us rarities. On the other hand, it will purchase any old tosh to satisfy its need for content. In this case it really has plumbed some depths.

Staring scream queen Brinke Stevens, the only thing it really does right is look so atrocious that the poor effects get lost in bad photography.

funeral
That poor photography hits you as the credits explore a graveyard. Black and white photography in a graveyard should have been an easy ask, a moment where, despite budget, the film looked to have a little class (and probably a little cliché, but nevertheless). It looked simply dreadful with washed out photography. The film continues in black and white at the (night time) funeral of Mary McPherson who was killed with violence apparently – but not as much violence as the scriptwriter applied to the dialogue, leaving it battered and bruised. At the funeral are Victoria (Brinke Stevens) and Jacob (Bill Rodd), the latter promising that they will find Mary's assailant. Incidentally neither actor looks like the 16-year-old that it is later intimated they are.

attack
Victoria asks for a moment alone at the grave, as the mourners leave, and Jacob returns to the carriage. Behind her is a man with an eyepatch – the family doctor, Dr Ayres (Joe Schofield), who she greets before screaming as he attacks her (yup, he’s a vampire). Later Dr Ayres tends to the injured and insensible Victoria at home – telling Jacob not to mind the contusions on her neck. He finishes her off (and someone sees as they peak through the window). The next day the priest – in a monumentally poor performance – tells Jacob that the locals believe she has been attacked by a vampire and want to cremate her. Jacob takes her to a family tomb, with her favourite jewellery, breaks his cane in half and stakes her.

into the crypt
Into colour and we are present day and Max (also Bill Rodd) and Carl (Matt Oppy) are DJs (and not the cool kind). Their girlfriends, Julie (Laurie Reeves) and Tonya (Andrea Emmes) respectively, are worried about their gambling and have reason to be as the lads are in some amount of debt. However, they should have been more worried that the director used close up shots of them and yet still failed to compose his shots in a competent way... Be that as it may, Max has a way out. He cleared out a family attic and discovered Jacob’s diary (Jacob being his great Grandfather – no mention is made of the new wife he must have had post Victoria). He knows that the family crypt has her jewels and – after being threatened with violence and losing another bet – they go and raid it. Now, given the corpse is still fresh from the 19th century – warm even – and the journal suggests that the cane and a family crucifix are keeping her from raising as a vampire… yup they take cane and crucifix as well as the bag of jewellery.

handy
Victoria rises from the grave, eats the first person she comes across and then finds Ayres – who lives in an (apparently) abandoned amusement park haunted castle type edifice. In there he tortures humans with his mad scientist sidekick (nothing comes of that thread) and was about to get someone to remove the stake (he’s taken his sweet time) when Max did the business. Why did he wait? Apparently, a vampire cannot resuscitate another vampire – no one knows why! Max, meanwhile, has a psychic link with Victoria and sees her attacks in his dreams and she, on the other hand, has decided that he is Jacob…

Brinke Stevens as Victoria
Phew… after all that it plods to its less than thrilling conclusion and I could barely contain my boredom. There is no reason to like the characters in this sub-Dark Shadows plot line (Mac and Carl being like Willie Loomis, with the ancestor vampire being gender swapped). They are glib about the happenings, and the girlfriends are both glib about it when told and unconcerned with where the boys’ sudden windfall came from. Cinematography is bad, scripting worst and even a seasoned trooper like Stevens can’t make the story come alive. 1 out of 10.

Prostitution Narratives: Stories of Survival in the Sex Trade

Caroline Norma, Melinda Tankard Reist (eds.)

For too long the global sex industry and its vested interests have dominated the prostitution debate repeating the same old line that sex work is just like any job. In large sections of the media, academia, public policy, Government and the law, the sex industry has had its way. Little is said of the damage, violation, suffering, and torment of prostitution on the body and the mind, nor of the deaths, suicides and murders that are routine in the sex industry.

Prostitution Narratives: Stories of Survival in the Sex Trade refutes the lies and debunks the myths spread by the industry through the lived experiences of women who have survived prostitution. These disturbing stories give voice to formerly prostituted women who explain why they entered the sex trade. They bravely and courageously recount their intimate experiences of harm and humiliation at the hands of sex buyers, pimps and traffickers and reveal their escape and emergence as survivors.

Edited by Caroline Norma and Melinda Tankard Reist, Prostitution Narratives documents the reality of prostitution revealing the cost to the lives of women and girls.

Prostitution Narratives: Stories of Survival in the Sex Trade will strengthen and support the global campaign to abolish prostitution, provide solidarity and solace to those who bear its scars and hopefully help women and girls exit this dehumanising industry.

As you read, be prepared to feel both grief and rage. Prostitution Narratives forces us to face the routine cruelty of the sexual-exploitation industries and go beyond the diversionary arguments of those who glorify ‘sex work.’ Most importantly, this book asks men to choose: What do we value more, our own sexual pleasure or the humanity of women? Our answer reveals whether we believe in our own humanity.

Robert Jensen, University of Texas at Austin, author of 'Getting Off: Pornography and the End of Masculinity'

Whatever your stand on prostitution, it’s the first-hand stories of women that have to be listened to first. These accounts are among the most unsettling you will ever read, dispelling in just a few pages the comforting fairytales our society has built around ‘sex work’. 

Steve Biddulph, author of 'Raising Boys'

          Remembering 10 Years Since We Baracked The Vote      Cache   Translate Page      


Sunday marked the 10th anniversary of Barack Obama's election as the first black US president. Ten years! What an epic night. People were celebrating in the streets like the original ending of Return of the Jedi. Black folks were crying ... good tears, not the "does anyone know the nearest stop for the Underground Railroad?" tears from 2016. We had achieved something unprecedented. So many states, including Florida or Georgia, had never even had a black governor (not yet) but the US had a black commander-in-chief. It was a milestone Americans of all races could appreciate, because it meant that racism was officially over. A former coworker had already insisted this happened in 2003 when Halle Berry won an Oscar (so "Spike Lee can just shut up!") but this was less irrational.

I tend to only use the term "post-racial America" ironically, but the notion was promoted in all earnestness back in 2008 when Obama looked to do the impossible. The beautiful dream was that the country was becoming more diverse and more tolerant. The less attractive reality was we were only becoming more diverse.

When Obama crushed war hero John McCain, black voters made up 13 percent of the electorate. White voters were 74 percent -- a staggering 15 percent drop since Ronald Reagan's 1980 victory over Jimmy Carter. Roughly the same percentage of white people voted for McCain as they did Reagan.


There was so much collective back-slapping, most of us happily ignored this fact and its implications. I recall a white high school classmate posting on Facebook that Obama wasn't actually the first "black" president but the first "biracial" president. His mother was white, after all, and his white grandparents raised him. Yeah, there was a brief period when even conservatives wanted a piece of the Barack.

Obama was able to run a color-blind campaign in 2008 (unlike Hillary Clinton in 2016 who confronted racism and a racist opponent head-on). George W. Bush had wrecked the economy, and even white folks in Mike Pence's home state of Indiana was willing to put the black guy in charge if he could turn things around, which he did. But Republicans soon realized that Obama would prove easy to demonize and obstruct: Although Bill Clinton had mostly tied with Bush and Dole for the white vote, Obama had overwhelmingly lost it. All that was necessary was to wait for his misstep, the opening where they could convince white America to stop seeing Obama as a pre-rape Bill Cosby/pre-murder O.J. celebrity but instead as a black man, as someone who wasn't on their side. This occurred when Obama dared defend a personal friend who was unjustly arrested for breaking into his own home (at least he wasn't shot).

"Gates-Gate" was in hindsight like the "bigger than Jesus" moment that ended Beatlemania. Soon we got Tea Party rallies, and a Tea Party Congress. And morons including one who'd later become president started to question whether Obama was even born in the United States. I rejected Clinton in 2008 early on because I shamefully thought she had too much "baggage." I naively thought that the Right couldn't repeat the same hit job on the mild-mannered Obama. How wrong I was.

The white Left tired of Obama after a couple years --- sort of like what happened to Michael Jackson after "Thriller." Obama was just another "warmonger" because they'd forgotten he was elected president of America not Care Bear Land. He was a "corporate stooge" because he only helped millions gain access to affordable health care. If he'd only just wished away Republicans and Joe Lieberman, we could've all had the Canadian hook up. And I wouldn't have had to pay for my bionic arm out of pocket like a sucker.

But black folks showed up for Obama in 2012. C'mon, we're the ones who bought Michael's "Invincible" album the day of release. You had to know we'd be there for our boy Barack. The Romney campaign sure didn't. They modified their internal polls to reflect the black voter turnout of pre-Civil War America. They couldn't conceive of old black ladies on walkers enduring ridiculous long lines to keep Obama out of the One-Termers Club with Jimmy Carter.

Romney did carry 59 percent of the white vote to Obama's 39 percent. That was roughly equal to the performance of George H.W. Bush and Michael Dukakis, but white voters were 85 percent of the white electorate in 1988 and just 72 percent in 2012. It's as if white people weren't solely selecting the president. That can't be right. It's hardly a surprise that Chief Justice John Roberts would decide just one year later that we don't need really need the Voting Rights Act.

Black voters truly flexed our electoral might in 2012, and ever since, the efforts to suppress our vote are obvious and unrelenting. Regardless, we kept a mall-cruising perv out of the Senate, and tomorrow we might save the country. It's exhausting, often terrifying, work. But we won't let Obama be our last hurrah. You know why? Because on November 4, 2008, we were happy, and maybe the joy lasted as long as Black Panther was in theaters, but they can't take it away from us.

That day has personal resonance with me, because it was one of the last times I spoke with my mother. She watched Obama win but didn't live to see his inauguration. She was excited that night but not shocked. I'd gotten engaged that summer, so I think there was no more shock left in her.

Watch my favorite presidential acceptance speech until Kamala's in a couple years.

           Connected Vehicle Technologies Expand to Austin, Texas       Cache   Translate Page      

Connected vehicle technologies are joining the transportation system in Texas' capital city to improve safety and communication with drivers.

Five intersections in Austin have been upgraded with dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) technology. The city will launch two more similar projects next year. The projects are part of Austin’s participation in the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Signal Phasing and Timing (SPaT) Challenge through the National Operations Center of Excellence, a partnership among transportation-related associations and government agencies to offer assistance with transportation technologies.

“This technology will allow connected vehicles to communicate in real time with the traffic signal controller,” explained Marissa Monroy, public information and marketing manager for the Austin Transportation Department. “The DSRC devices are able to broadcast industry standard basic safety messages in the immediate vicinity of the intersection to surrounding vehicles equipped with onboard units.”

Some of these safety messages include the vehicle’s position, the braking system’s status and traffic signal information.

“This type of information will help future connected traffic signals and equipped vehicles to communicate about pedestrian or bicyclist presence in the intersection, improve vehicle performance, and provide engineers with traffic data that can be used to improve safety and operations,” she added via email.

The technology, which was funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation, was supplied by Battelle, a private nonprofit applied research and technology center based in Columbus, Ohio. The project is part of the federal Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture project, commonly known as the V2I (vehicle-to-infrastructure) Hub.

The five intersections to receive the DSRC upgrades were selected based on their proximity to the Austin urban core, as well as “some of the more interesting and challenging intersections,” said Monroy. These are areas with high traffic volumes and areas with oddly shaped intersections.

The basic safety messages indicate vehicle position, motion, brake system status and size, and provide vehicles with SPaT information — the traffic signal controller light indications and duration of those indications.

Other cities and regions have also been experimenting with connected vehicle technologies. In June, the Colorado Department of Transportation announced a partnership with Panasonic Corp. of North America to begin installing a network of roughly 100 roadside units along I-70 between Golden and Vail, a stretch of about 90 miles. The devices can communicate with the state’s Traffic Management Center, as well as connected vehicles.

The system will enable a “vehicle-to-everything” — known as V2X — environment where cars can share billions of data points an hour related to speed and other operations, which are fed into the system to generate alerts and other information.

About the same time, transportation officials in Columbus, Ohio, announced the launch of its “Connected Vehicle Environment,” also a network of roadside devices which can interface with in-vehicle technology to collect data to be used by 12 applications, such as traffic signal priority for transit vehicles, speed reduction alerts in school zones and red-light violation warnings.

In the next three to five years, it’s expected that a number of automakers, including General Motors, Ford, Toyota and Volkswagen, will include connected vehicle technology on some or all of their cars.

Austin is also involved in other traffic data-sharing projects, such as its partnership with the University of Texas at Austin to use video analytics to study traffic load and road usage. The project uses existing video streams from traffic cameras to track and monitor certain usages like cyclists or pedestrians, with an aim to design and plan streets that are safer and friendlier for all users.

Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker’s Just-Listed Austin Estate is a Farmhouse-Chic Grand Slam

Game, set, match. This Texas retreat is a winner.

After taking great pains to renovate it, Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker are selling their Austin estate for a grand-slamming $6 million. The tennis star and his model-actress wife of nearly 10 years purchased the wooded 15-acre property back in 2006. The five bedroom, 6.5-bathroom home, which now comes complete with two wings—one for the owners and one for guests.

In a 2017 interview with People, Decker explained how she wanted each space in the home to evoke a warm farmhouse vibe. “The world can be so serious,” the former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model said. “When you are home, you should feel good.”

From its exposed wooden beams and gleaming marble, to the master bathroom’s copper soaking tub-with-a-view, this stylish Texas retreat is a master class in country-chic.

          Texas Realtor, Cyndi Alvarez Adopts Pay It Forward Business Model to Support Heroes Everyone Should Say Thanks To      Cache   Translate Page      

Pay it forward business model implemented in the heart of Texas to change the tide in a society that often moves too fast for its own good.

Austin, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/06/2018 -- One could say it's about time a Realtor has found an edge just by putting their best foot forward. One such motivated trendsetter is Cyndi Alvarez. She's a Realtor and a patriot of sorts that has put her stake in the ground with a push for kindness in a busy real estate marketplace. Having partnered with Dream Homes Texas Realty Group and industry-leader eXp Realty, the thoughtful go-getter gives a leg up to a section of society that often goes unnoticed. She is reaching out with significant discounts to teachers, clergy members, first responders, government employees and those in the military with viable savings on real estate transactions. She even extends the discount to clients aged sixty-five and over. Pay it forward, indeed.

Alvarez said of her mission, "It's very simple really. I had to ask myself how I could support those who help society every day in a very practical way. I thought it best to start with what I was good at doing. Real estate is my passion, and my record shows my success in this field. So, it's my turn to give back to those who are an essential part of all of our lives behind the scenes. I hope it will inspire others to do something similar and incorporate a sense of social justice into their business model."

Serving the entire state of Texas, Alvarez' main territory extends north of Austin and all the way to the south of San Antonio. Always engaged, Alvarez is not a proponent of employing support staff to meet her clients' needs. One such example of that is, she gives her clients her personal cell phone number whereby they can reach her until 10 p.m. nightly.

Having recently moved from Keller Williams to eXp Realty LLC, Alvarez adds, "I believe my move is on time as eXp Realty is one of the fastest-growing brokers in the United States. Their business model helps me have time to care for my family and have plenty of time to meet my client's needs as well. I would love to help other agents keep a larger portion their very hard-earned income and get over 30 hours of training per week for free while they're at it. Thankfully now, that's what I get with eXp," Alvarez added.

          WATUHUMIWA 14 WA WIZI WA MAGARI, SILAHA AINA SHOTGUN NA BASTOLA WATIWA MBARONI      Cache   Translate Page

Jeshi la Polisi Kanda Maalum Dar es salaam limefanikiwa kukamata silaha moja aina ya Short Gun, risasi nne za short gun na mlipuko moja uliotengenezwa kienyeji.
