          Oakland Raiders 2018/19 Week 08      Cache   Translate Page      


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



Oakland Raiders - Indianapolis Colts 28:42

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

          Information Warfare and Security Flaws: Why the American Voting System Is Still at Serious Risk      Cache   Translate Page      
As this election’s results come back, they will reveal whether the misinformation and propaganda campaigns conducted alongside the political ones were effective.

As the 2018 midterms proceed, there are still significant risks to the integrity of the voting system – and information warfare continues to try to influence the American public’s choices when they cast their ballots.

On the day of the election, there were a number of early hitches in voting at individual polling places, such as polling places opening late and vote-counting machines not plugged in. But there seem not – at least not yet – to be major problems across the country.

However, not all the election-related news and information voters have been encountering in recent days and weeks is accurate, and some of it is deliberately misleading. As this election’s results come back, they will reveal whether the misinformation and propaganda campaigns conducted alongside the political ones were effective.

Securing election systems

America’s electoral process remains highly fragmented, because of the country’s cherished tradition of decentralized government and local control. While this may leave some individual communities’ voting equipment potentially vulnerable to attack, the nation’s voting process overall may be more trustworthy as a result of this fragmentation. With no unified government agency or office to provide, administer and protect election technologies, there’s not one central national element that could fail or be attacked.

Across the country, though, many districts’ voters will cast ballots with the help of machines that have long-standing security concerns. Fortunately, 45 states keep a paper record of each vote cast – whether for fear of threats to voting integrity or just budget constraints preventing purchase of newer gear. But that means five states – Louisiana, Georgia, South Carolina, New Jersey and Delaware – don’t keep paper records of their voters’ choices.

Voting machine vendors have been reluctant to appear before Congress to explain their systems’ security practices – and shortcomings. However, federal agencies have helped some states reduce the likelihood of voting machines being hacked or physically tampered with.

Beyond voting machines

Election security is about much more than voting machines and vote-counting systems, though they are the most visible technologies at work on Election Day. State systems that track voter registrations, or allow users to register online, are enticing targets for hackers, too. Security firm Carbon Black reported that 81 million voter records from 20 states are available in online forums. This data, obtained by hacking various official and corporate databases, could be used to facilitate voter fraud or sow confusion at polling places on Election Day: How would you feel if you were told that someone using your name and address had already voted?

There are security concerns even in states like Oregon, where everyone votes on paper and mails in their ballots in advance of Election Day. That state’s election officials were targeted by hackers seeking to gain access to state email and database systems. With that access, attackers might be able to digitally impersonate a government official to send false or confusing emails, press releases or other notifications to citizens, journalists or poll workers.

Also at risk are public-facing official websites that carry election information. Merely changing the reported location of polling places or voting hours could prevent some people from voting. Also vulnerable are states’ methods of announcing preliminary election results. At a major internet security conference in August, children were able to compromise replicas of several states’ election-reporting systems. The most remarkable was that in just 10 minutes, an 11-year-old boy cracked the security on a copy of the Florida secretary of state’s website and was able to change the publicly announced vote totals for candidates. That could be enough to cast doubt on whatever was later reported as the official results – and the integrity of the system itself.

Managing information on social media

A more difficult threat to defend against is information warfare, which doesn’t attack voting machines or election officials’ computers. Rather, it targets voters’ perceptions and decisions, seeking to influence how they vote.

Long before the 2016 U.S. presidential election, information warfare was influencing elections around the world, including in Ukraine, Myanmar and Egypt. But after 2016, Facebook and Twitter came under intense scrutiny for their role in providing digital environments that facilitated the spread of misinformation to sow discontent, and special counsel Robert Mueller began investigating Russians’ influence efforts.

In the run-up to the 2018 midterms, Russians and others were still hard at work trying to influence Americans to vote in ways that help foreign interests. In October, the U.S. Department of Justice charged a Russian woman with creating thousands of fake social media accounts allegedly representing American citizens to “create and amplify divisive social media and political content” before the election.

This year, though, unlike two years ago, social media companies are taking action. Twitter and Facebook have both deleted thousands of accounts they identified as engaging in propaganda and influence-peddling. And they have made other efforts to identify and fight falsehoods on their platforms, too.

Nevertheless, online misinformation continues to thrive. More than 80 percent of the Twitter accounts that often shared links to false and misleading information in 2016 are still active today. And the amount of online misinformation is higher than it was two years ago.

Investigating alleged wrongdoing

U.S. intelligence and police agencies are concerned about the potential effects of misinformation on the American electorate. But large proportions of the country don’t trust those organizations to be politically independent. It doesn’t help that the White House continues to claim, without evidence, that voter fraud is a significant problem.

Mainstream news organizations can find themselves under scrutiny too, either for reporting falsehoods that appear to gain traction online or for failing to filter out or properly identify inaccurate information for their readers.

Looking ahead

Protecting democracy is a huge challenge. I’ve written before that it involves more than technical solutions to computer problems. The U.S. government, and the people it serves, must find the desire and the drive to establish secure and trustworthy procedures for running elections across the country. Education is also key, teaching people from an early age how to recognize propaganda and misinformation, and think critically about the information they encounter. Facts are not subject to alternative views; without widespread agreement on common objective realities, society and government cannot function well.

Technology continues to evolve, presenting challenges to individuals and society alike. Emerging “deepfake” technology is already helping create convincing videos of people appearing to say and do things they never said or did. In addition, intelligent social media bots are becoming more human-like, making identifying and blocking them much more difficult. That’s just some of the challenges that democracies will face in the future.

Many of these problems will not have a clearly defined fix, because they involve a nuanced balancing of individual rights and social necessities. Real and lasting solutions must come from civil discourse by rational and objectively informed people who have, above all, the actual honest desire to do it right.

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

Sunday Early

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sunday Late

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sunday Night

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

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

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

Monday Night

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

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

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

          With the Catholic Bishops, It's Always Someone Else's Sin That's Responsible for the Abuse Crisis: A Response to the Bishops' Prayer-and-Fasting Regime      Cache   Translate Page      
  

The preceding announcement is a prelude to the gathering of the U.S. Catholic bishops that will occur next week in Baltimore. Catholic News Service editor Julie Asher tweeted the following yesterday on behalf of the bishops:



In my view, this showy announcement about prayer, fasting, reptentance, and conversion is diversionary. As I said recently, when it comes to the abuse horror show, it's always someone else's sin — never the sin of the bishops. It's always someone else's sin, when the leaders of the Catholic church address that horror show.  

The statement that "we pray for … the conversion and just punishment of perpetrators and concealers of sexual abuse” does not own their responsibility for protecting and concealing sexual abuse of minors and vulnerable people by Catholic clergy. It rhetorically disguises the bishops’ responsibility.

"We pray for their conversion" is a different statement from, "We pray for our conversion."

With the Catholic bishops, the implication is repeatedly that someone else's sin is responsible for the abuse horror show — not the bishops' sin, as they have lied and covered up abuse.

Back towards the end of September, as I was commenting on the burning of a rainbow flag by Chicago priest Paul Kalchik, I noted that on the weekend before Kalchik organized his stunt, presenting it as an "exorcism" and purification by fire of the church he pastored, a Catholic group in Malta held a rosary rally for reparation against the LGBTQ agenda. I noted this event as I was discussing the weaponization of Catholic religious symbols that is central to the story of Father Kalchik's burning of the rainbow flag. 

I noted, in particular, how central Catholic symbols — the rosary, processions, public shows of prayer and fasting — have been repeatedly used over the course of Catholic history to target demonized others in scapegoating attempts to transfer the sins of the church community to those hapless others. I told you that we could expect to see much more of the kind of thing anti-LGBTQ Catholics in Malta organized during pride weekend this year — a rosary procession demonizing LGBTQ people and implying that Catholic symbols are weapons meant to be turned against the queer community. 

I said that we'd be seeing more public processions featuring the rosary in which Catholics are led by bishops to assert the need to "purify" the church, as had just happened in the diocese of Charlotte, North Carolina, at the time I wrote that potsting — a diocese with a dismal track record when it comes to LGBTQ rights and LGBTQ people, so that we'd be naive to imagine that the rhetoric about purification and the weaponized rosary procession that took place there several weeks back do not have a loud, strong anti-LGBTQ subtext.

With the bishops, it's always someone else's sin that's responsible for the abuse horror show — not their own. All the talk of reparation, penance, purification, prayer and fasting now: it's about shifting blame for the sinful cover-up of clerical abuse of minors from the bishops themselves, and, quite specifically, I fear, to the LGBTQ community. 

Will the diversion work? Well, just have a gander at the thread of responses to the USCCB announcement at the head of the posting, or to the USCCB's recent tweet asking Catholics to give to the Campaign for Human Development, and decide for yourself whether they have much moral capital left. Gay bashing may play well for them, but standing on the street corners and praying in loud voices so others can see them — perhaps not so well.

          Desarrollar quarterbacks jóvenes en la NFL se convierte en desafío      Cache   Translate Page      

NUEVA YORK. ¿Hacerlos titulares de inmediato? ¿Facilitarles la adaptación paulatina? ¿Tenerlos sentados toda la temporada? Cuando se trata de desarrollar a quarterbacks jóvenes en la NFL, no hay recetas mágicas. Todo depende de quién esté hablando.

Algunos equipos prefieren lanzar al quarterback novato al fuego para que aprenda el trabajo haciéndolo. Otros prefieren adaptarlos gradualmente a la ofensiva. Algunos consideran más benéfico tenerlos en la línea lateral con una gorra y un pizarrón aprendiendo todo desde ahí.

“Creo que cada posición es lo mismo”, dijo el coordinador ofensivo de los Jets de Nueva York, Jeremy Bates. “Si alguien no puede manejar (su posición) mentalmente, entonces no quieres ponerlo en el terreno de juego, porque naturalmente jugará más lento y estará pensando en lugar de reaccionar”.

Sam Darnold claramente pasó la prueba para los Jets y la tercera selección global en el draft de abril pasado ya estaba detrás del centro para abrir la temporada.

“Si un jugador muestra la habilidad atlética, el talento y la capacidad mental para manejar el plan de juego y entra al partido y es exitoso, entonces está listo para jugar”, señaló Bates.

Eso no significa que las cosas necesariamente hayan ido bien para la exestrella de la Universidad del Sur de California.

Las 14 intercepciones lanzadas por Darnold son la mayor cantidad esta temporada y han influido en un inicio de 3-6 para los Jets. Lo mismo ha pasado con su 55% de pases completos y su rating de quarterback de 68,3, que también se encuentra entre los peores de la liga.

Aun así, algunos consideran estos problemas iniciales como bloques de construcción cruciales para el futuro.

“Voy a seguir aprendiendo”, declaró Darnold el domingo tras la derrota 13-6 en Miami, en la cual lanzó cuatro intercepciones, una de ellas devuelta para el touchdown que despegó de manera definitiva a los Dolphins. “Siempre hay lecciones que aprender”.

De los 32 quarterbacks enlistados como titulares para sus equipos en la actualidad, 12 estuvieron detrás del centro en la primera jornada de su primera temporada como profesionales.

Del otro lado de la moneda, algunas superestrellas experimentadas esperaron mucho antes de recibir su oportunidad.

Aaron Rodgers estuvo atascado detrás de Brett Favre en Green Bay para finalmente ser titular hasta su cuarta temporada. Philip Rivers no inició un partido con los Chargers sino hasta su tercer año, cuando Drew Brees se fue a Nueva Orleáns. Incluso Brees no tuvo su primera titularidad en la NFL hasta su segunda campaña.

Tom Brady, Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger y Alex Smith tampoco fueron titulares en el primer encuentro de sus carreras.

“En un mundo ideal, llega a ser como con Drew, quien tuvo oportunidad de observar un poco, o Tom Brady y Aaron (Rodgers)”, consideró el exquarterback, Rich Gannon, Jugador Más Valioso (MVP, por sus siglas en inglés) de la NFL en 2002 y actual analista de CBS Sports y SiriusXM NFL Radio.

Como novato, Patrick Mahomes estuvo en la banca detrás de Alex Smith en Kansas City hasta la jornada 17 del año pasado, y ahora es uno de los principales candidatos a MVP como uno de los mejores pasadores, con 29 envíos de touchdown _líder de la NFL. Los Chiefs han arrancado la campaña con una foja de 8-1.

“Sabíamos que Patrick era muy talentoso, pero cada vez que un equipo de la NFL va con un quarterback joven, por lo general es una tarea muy desafiante”, comentó el propietario de los Chiefs, Clark Hunt. “Algunas veces toma tiempo, muchos años, pero como hemos visto, Andy (Reid) tuvo a Patrick listo para la primera jornada”.

Gannon piensa que los Chiefs proveen el modelo perfecto.

“Mahomes tuvo oportunidad de observar a un maestro en su dominio durante un año”, dijo. “Alex Smith conocía ese sistema por dentro y por fuera, tiene gran mando de la ofensiva, y capacidad de liderazgo. Tal vez no lanza como Mahomes, pero este es un tipo que estaba dispuesto a compartir y ayudarlo durante ese año, y estamos viendo los frutos ahora. Esa es la mejor situación que puedes tener”.

De nuevo, todo depende de a quién se le pregunte.

En los últimos tres reclutamientos colegiales, 11 quarterbacks fueron elegidos en la primera ronda, incluidos Darnold, Baker Mayfield de Cleveland, Josh Allen de Buffalo, Josh Rosen de Arizona y Lamar Jackson de Baltimore este año.

Jackson es el único que no ha iniciado un duelo como titular. Baltimore tiene a Joe Flacco como el líder de su ofensiva, pero Jackson ha sido empleado el sistema y es el sublíder corredor de los Ravens.

Los Browns querían tener a Mayfield, la primera selección global de este año, sentado y aprendiendo detrás de Tyrod Taylor. Pero como la mayoría de los planes en Cleveland, fue contraproducente.

Taylor se lesionó en la tercera semana y Mayfield fue empujado a la alineación, ayudando a los Browns a venir de atrás para vencer a los Jets en un juego televisado a nivel nacional que puso fin a una racha de 19 encuentros sin ganar para Cleveland. Mayfield ha mostrado desenvolvimiento y promete, pero carece de jugadores habilidosos a su alrededor y está lidiando con un cambio de entrenador tras el despido de Hue Jackson.

Para aquellos que predican la paciencia, 25 de los 32 quarterbacks actuales iniciaron un partido en algún momento de su temporada de novatos. Y varios conservaron el puesto desde allí.

Quarterbacks como Jared Goff de los Rams (primera selección global en 2016) y Mitchell Trubisky de los Bears (segunda global en 2017) fueron titulares de inmediato y tuvieron problemas como novatos, pero se beneficiaron de cambios en los cuerpos de entrenadores y las filosofías de juego para dar un salto de calidad en su segunda temporada.

Así que, ¿quién tiene la razón?

Bueno, todos los arriba mencionados.

          Nächster Rekord! Chiefs-Star Mahomes brilliert       Cache   Translate Page      

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

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

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

Hunt gelingen drei Touchdowns

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

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

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

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

Peterman mit schlechter Leistung

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

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

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

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

Fitzpatrick zaubert bei Niederlage

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

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

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

Jones mit erstem Touchdown der Saison

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

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

Katastrophen-Abend für Darnold

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

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

Alle Ergebnisse im Überblick:

Sonntag, 4. November:

Buffalo Bills - Chicago Bears 9:41
Miami Dolphins - New York Jets 13:6
Baltimore Ravens - Pittsburgh Steelers 16:23

Less episodic than previous Happenstance productions, BAROCOCO is all-of-a-piece, a day in the life, or perhaps a year elapses. It's hard to tell. It's a study in contrasts, a lace-trimmed veil across the face of Godot. It's resplendent and silly, ridiculous and desolate, hilarious and horrible. It's also well-researched, making it at once historic and metaphoric.

The steeply raked seating of Theatre Project assures a good view no matter where you sit, and the cast carefully pays attention to all portions of the audience, not just the folk in center front. And they DO pay attention to you- BAROCOCO directly demands your engagement. Well, except for Baroness Constance Blandford Plainview, who abashedly accepts it, and quickly looks away.

As the Baroness, Gwen Grastorf is distractingly self-conscious, Alex Vernon, playing Duc Leslie Pamplemousse de Citron-Presse is haughty and affected. Sarah Olmsted Thomas as Dauphine Marionette is desperately frivolous; as the Countess, Sabrina Mandell is furious and brittle- her castanet work is remarkable- and as Astorio Cavalieri, Mark Jaster is bemused, resourceful and occasionally smug.

The multi-talented cast proves their worth also as musicians, with instruments or vocally. Designated Accompanist Caleb Jaster, a newcomer to the group, handles harpsichord and other musical instruments (one of which I can't even identify) with dexterity and skill, proving equal to the compositions and arrangements of prior Happenstance mostly-musical member Karen Hansen.

Lighting by Kris Thompson provides mood change, focus and drama, without drawing attention to itself, perfectly timed at each cue. It highlights a pared-down set, which consists of a chunk of furniture, a few accent pieces and musical instruments. All the bits of the set work ingeniously together, most playing multiple roles, while meanwhile being quite lovely to observe.

Sabrina Mandell, responsible for designing costuming that accommodate the motion-based performances of the pantomimetic group, triumphs with swanky duds that capture a period-appropriate look, resulting in a splenifriptacular wardrobe that silently elucidates the nature of each character. The shoes are lovely; the handkerchiefs, profound; the wigs, elaborately stunning.

There are two sets of steep stairs for accessing the performance space at Theatre Project, with a lift apiece for accessibility. The ladies' room has an accessible stall and one other; I'm guessing the mens' is similarly equipped. Parking can be found on the street, or in the lot conveniently across the street. It's been "cash only" before when I've passed; I don't know that it always is. While you're in the neighborhood, you may enjoy a pre-show bite at Soup's On, half a block away on Preston Street. In addition to soup, they offer sandwiches and Turkish coffee. A full tummy and empty bladder are advisable for a one-hour show with no intermission.

Happenstance Theatre's offerings are always high quality evocative entertainment. This time around, with BAROCOCO, they're also making Important Social Commentary. A historic piece which is currently relevant, beautiful and funny is a rarity in the world. Treat yourself to this fabulously stunning morsel of meaningful ephemera.

Run Time: One hour, no Intermission.
Happenstance Theatre's BAROCOCO http://www.theatreproject.org/barococo/ plays at Theatre Project, 45 West Preston Street, Baltimore, MD 21201 through November 11th.

Bonjour tout le monde ! On se retrouve ce matin pour parler un peu de lecture. Au programme les quelques livres que j’ai lu ces dernières semaines. Alors oui, j’insiste bien sur le « quelques » car il y a eu un léger retour en force des séries à la maison et forcément dans ces cas-là, la lecture est mise à mal… Et en plus, après avoir fini Le lambeau de Philippe Lançon j’ai vraiment eu besoin de faire une pause. Ce livre était tellement puissant qu’il m’a fallu quelques semaines avant de pouvoir me plonger dans un autre roman. De tout ce que j’ai pu lire, c’était de loin le plus dur. Je pensais que rien ne pourrait être plus fort que L’année de la pensée magique de Joan Didion, mais en fait si, le récit de la reconstruction physique et psychologique de Monsieur Lançon était encore un cran au dessus… Dans les quelques livres que j’ai dévoré, on trouve donc : Les délices de Tokyo de Dorian Sukegawa : un tout petit roman tout mignon sur les Dorayaki.

Comments/ questions by a Cushingite on the book BREAD OF LIFE by Father Leonard Fenney.

2 ". No Salvation Without Baptism of Water The second point is that a person justified by Baptism of Desire could never be saved without Baptism of Water. Fr. Feeney presents a series of questions and answers to express his position on this matter: Q. What does “Baptism of Desire” mean? A. It means the belief in the necessity of Baptism of Water for salvation, and a full intent to receive it. Q. Can “Baptism of Desire” save you? A. Never. Q. Could “Baptism of Desire” save you if you really believed it could? A. It could not. Q. Could it possibly suffice for you to pass into a state of justification? A. It could. Q. If you got into the state of justification with the aid of “Baptism of Desire,” and then failed to receive Baptism of Water, could you be saved? A. Never. [Ibid., p. 121.] For Fr. Feeney a man could be justified by desire for Baptism. He could get into the State of Sanctifying Grace in this fashion. But even though he was in the State of Grace he could “never” be saved; he could never get to heaven unless and until he was baptized with water. Nor did it matter to Fr. Feeney whether the person failed to receive Baptism of Water through his own fault or not. He said: “If you do not receive Baptism of Water, you cannot be saved, whether you are guilty or not guilty for not having received it. If it was not your fault that you did not receive it, then you just do not go to Heaven. You are lacking something required for Heaven. " FATHER FENNEY WAS WRONG  ON THIS>>>>>>>
Lionel: He was not wrong. For us human beings there is salvation only with the baptism of water.We can speculate about the baptism of desire etc.But finally the dogmatic teaching is that all need the baptism of water. Meanwhile you and I know that there are no objective exceptions to the dogma EENS.
___________________________ 


 "But what happens to a person who is justified by desire for Baptism and who is thus in the State of Sanctifying Grace if that person dies before receiving Baptism of Water through no fault of his own? Fr. Feeney says: “Imyself would say, my dear children, that a catechumen who dies before Baptism, is punished.” [Ibid., p. 125.] Recall his words already quoted: “It is now: Baptism of Water, or damnation! If you do not desire that Water, you cannot be justified. And if you do not get it, you cannot be saved.” [Emphasis in the original] [Ibid., p. 25.]
Lionel: I would say the same thing. In our reality there is only the baptism of water for salvation This is the general rule. If there was an exception it would only be known to God.So we cannot speculate and theorize as if we know how God will act, especially since there is a non existent case before us.
Who is this person who is justified by desire for Baptism and who is thus in the State of Sanctifying Grace ? ...he is anonymous.He does not exist in our reality. He is an unknown person.
_____________________________

 Just think of the implications of Fr. Feeney’s teaching. Here is a man who is justified by desire for Baptism.
Lionel: Here is a man ?? Where is this man?
_____________________________

 He is in the State of Sanctifying Grace. He, therefore, has within him a created participation in the very life of God. He is a child of God. He has the theological virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity.
Lionel: This is all speculation. It is meaningless.
There are no such cases known to us for us to judge and discuss them.In your mind would this be a visible case?
___________________________________________

He believes in the Catholic Faith. He loves God above all things. He relies on the merits of Jesus Christ for his salvation. He has perfect contrition for his sins. He is devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary and says her Rosary every day. He is preparing for Baptism. But before he receives it, he dies.
Lionel: Who is this person? 
______________________________


 Fr. Feeney would say that such a man cannot go to heaven because he was not baptized with water. Where does this man in the State of Sanctifying Grace go? Fr. Feeney says: “It is now: Baptism of Water, or damnation! If you do not desire that Water, you cannot be justified. And if you do not get it, you cannot be saved.” [Ibid.]  FATHER FEENEY WAS WRONG!!!!!!
Lionel: Why was he wrong? He was telling you the norm for salvation is the baptism of water and that you and I do not know of any exception. A theoretical, speculative case is not an exception or relevant to EENS. This is the Cushingite false reasoning which you are using.
_________________________________


 " Now this is not the teaching of 20th century liberals in Boston, Mass. It is the teaching of the Angelic Doctor, St. Thomas Aquinas himself.
Lionel: The Angelic Doctor did not say that the man in the forest was a visible and known exception to the dogma EENS which he, Aquinas,  affirmed.
____________________________________


And it was upheld by the infallible teaching of the Council of Trent.
Lionel: The Council of Trent did not state that ' the desire therof ' referred to a personally known non Catholic saved outside the Church. This is a false inference being made here. It is Cushingism.
___________________________________

 The doctrine of Fr. Feeney and his distinction between Justification and Salvation thus flies in the face of the teachings of St. Thomas and of Holy Mother Church. Recall, if you will, the questions and answers of Fr. Feeney which we have already quoted: Q. Could “Baptism of Desire” save you if you really believed it could? A. It could not. Q. Could it possibly suffice for you to pass into a state of justification? A. It could. Q. If you got into the state of justification with the aid of “Baptism of Desire,” and then failed to receive Baptism of Water, could you be saved? A. Never. [Feeney, op. cit., p. 121.]
Lionel: Correct.He is affirming the dogma EENS and literally he does not know of anyone saved outside the Church. So I agree with him.
______________________________________
 The essential error of Fr. Feeney, then, is rooted in his novel distinction between Justification and Salvation which involves errors touching both Justification and Sanctifying Grace. In these matters, Fr. Feeney departs from the doctrine of the Catholic Church.
Lionel: He is affirming the dogma EENS.
Without the baptism of water there is no salvation.
We do not know of any body who is justified without the baptism of water or who is saved without the baptism of water.
We do not know of any body who is justified without Catholic faith and who is saved without Catholic faith, which would also include the baptism of water.
______________________________________________

 He does this in order to foster and to protect his own doctrine of no Salvation without Baptism of Water. To further demonstrate this we will now proceed to a consideration of the teaching of the Catholic Church on Justification and sancttifying grace " Father Fenney was wrong!!!!!!!
Lionel: It is the teaching of the Catholic Church over the centuries.
_______________________


  " St. Emerentiana — An Unbaptised Saint There are, therefore, many saints in heaven who never received Baptism of Water and who have not, 16 therefore, upon their souls, the indelible mark of the Sacrament of Baptism. For they were justified not by Baptism of Water but by Baptism of Desire or of Blood. Since they died in the State of Grace they were saved. The fact that they did not have the indelible mark on their souls which is placed there by the Sacrament of Baptism did not prevent them from entering heaven. They were justified. They died in the State of Grace. And they were saved. An example is St. Emerentiana, virgin and martyr. While still an unbaptised catechumen she was martyred at the grave of St. Agnes. Her feast day is January 23 rd "

Lionel: St.Emerentiana and St. Agnes may be in Heaven but no one on earth could say that they did not receive the baptism of water.
_____________________________________


 "  The Council of Trent and Baptism of Desire Thus the Council of Trent infallibly taught that Justification was “a translation from that state wherein man is born a child of the first Adam to the State of Grace and of the adoption of the sons of God through the second Adam, Jesus Christ, our Saviour.” [Dogmatic Canons and Decrees, pp. 25-26.] The Decree of the Council says: “… and this translation, since the promulgation of the Gospel, cannot be effected without the laver of regeneration, or the desire thereof [emphasis added], as it is written: ‘Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.’” [Ibid., p. 26.]
Lionel: It supports Fr. Leonard Feeney here.
________________________________________

 Please note that the Decree of the Council of Trent, which was infallible, did not distinguish between two kinds of Justification — one brought about by Baptism of Water and one brought about by desire for Baptism. It speaks of only one Justification which is “effected” by “the laver of regeneration [i.e., Baptism of Water], or the desire thereof….”
Lionel: Correct since in our reality there is only the baptism of water.
__________________________________________

 That Justification is effected by “desire” for “the laver of regeneration” is an infallible truth. 
Lionel: Practically we do not and cannot know of any such case of Justification with or without the baptism of water.
________________________________________

It is, therefore, the same State of Justification and the same State of Grace that results whether the person is put into that state by Baptism of Water or by Baptism of Desire. Justification by Baptism of Desire is the infallible teaching of the Church. It is not a mere theological opinion that Catholics are free to reject. 

" Therefore, a person who dies in the State of Justification, whether justified by the waters of Baptism or the desire for them, would be saved. The status of two souls — one justified by Baptism of Water and the other by Baptism of Desire — as regards salvation is the same. And again — this is true even though a person justified by desire for Baptism does not have upon his soul the character of Baptism which is the indelible mark put there by the Baptism of Water. "
Lionel: Again this is theoretical speculation.It is not a problem as long as the baptism of desire is not considered an exception to EENS.
___________________________________

Q. If you got into the State of Justification with the aid of “Baptism of Desire,” and then failed to receive Baptism of Water, could you be saved? A. Never. [Feeney, op. cit., p. 121.] The essential error, therefore, of Fr. Leonard Feeney is not that he taught that there is no salvation outside the Church. It is rather his rejection of the teaching of the Church on Grace and Justification in the service of his doctrine that Baptism of Water was absolutely necessary for salvation. 
Lionel: He was speaking in a literal sense. You are mixing up what is theoretical as being literally known . This is the error of Cushingism.
How can unknown cases of Justification be relevant to the traditional teaching on exclusive salvation in the Church.
__________________________________

That he was wrong there is no doubt. Indeed his insistence that a justified person who has not been baptized with water could “never” be saved is essentially heretical.

Fr. Feeney’s accusation of heresy, therefore, against Cardinal Gibbons and the Baltimore Catechism for their teaching on Baptism of Desire and Blood is an outrage and an absurdity.
Lionel: They were heretical since possibillities and hypothetical cases could not be exceptions to the traditional interpretation of EENS.
The Letter of the Holy Office 1949 was also heretical.
________________________________


 For in this accusation of heresy he would have to include St. Cyprian, St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, not to mention the Council of Trent and the Catechism of the Council of Trent.
Lionel: Wrong. They did not assume possibilities and unknown people were known exceptions to EENS. This was the mistake of the liberal theologians.It was accepted by Archbishop Lefebvre. This still is the false inference of the bishops and priests of the SSPX, FSSP, CMRI etc.
Where are the exceptions to EENS in 2018?
Where are the known cases saved with Justification and other conditions?
Where is a known St. Emerentiana today?
There are no such people.
___________________________________

 It may be that at one time Fr. Feeney had a valid point to make in opposing the liberal tendencies of his day which sought to water down the doctrine of the necessity of the Church for salvation so as to make it almost meaningless. But that is no excuse for him to deviate from Catholic Tradition and the infallible teaching of the Church on Baptism, Justification and Sanctifying Grace. His errors are most grave. For they involve the implicit denial of certain dogmas of the Faith — which is the very meaning of the word HERESY.
Lionel: He is affirming the dogma EENS and does not interpret speculative and hypothetical cases as being relevant or exceptions to EENS.
He is rational and traditional.
___________________________________


Fr. Feeney wrote: “Q. If you got into the State of Justification with the aid of ‘Baptism of Desire,’ and then failed to receive Baptism of Water, could you be saved? A. Never.” [Ibid., p. 121.] To say such a thing is to deny or doubt “a dogma properly so-called . . . 20 [which] is . . . the sin of heresy.”
Lionel: He is still affirming the strict interpretation of the dogma EENS.There are known known people with Justification who can be an objective exception to the dogmatic teaching on all needing to be physically visible members of the Catholic Church for salvation.
The Catechism of Pope Pius X for example says every one needs to be a member of the Catholic Church for salvation.
Vatican Council II says all need faith and baptism for salvation(AG 7).
Are you saying that you know of an exception?
Did Archbishop Lefebvre know of an exception?
No.
So Fr. Leonard Feeney was correct.

          Re: Grand Jury Clears Police Officers in Fatal Shooting of Patrick Kimmons      Cache   Translate Page      

@Crustina Rae, When there is an active shooter, police will come from every direction. They are at the highest level of alertness to such calls. They will have massive amounts of manpower as well as military grade weapons. What this accomplishes is a massive show of force as well as the highest level of officer safety. What does this do, more often then not it de-escalates the situation. This is why mass shooters are often brought in alive.

During routine police work, a police officer has to make split second life and death decisions, without tactical gear, manpower, or general information about that situation. This is often why police shootings with solo officers happen more.

Patrick Kimmons was lawfullyshot under Tennessee vs. Garner. Yes there was a rational belief that Patrick would shoot and possibly kill someone else. This means he can be legally shot in the back. As for amounts of shots, one vs nine does not matter. For an officer to fire his weapon once, there is only leathal force. One shot is intended to kill, as is nine. It does not matter. There is no way you shoot to disarm. Please look diagram of arteries and veins in the human body. You will see why you cannot shoot to wound. What if you shoot someone in the leg intending to wound and they bleed to death from a bullet cutting the femeral artery. Yep you guessed it lawsuits and protests everywhere.

Now onto white people getting food after a mass shooting. The station Dylan Roof was taking to does not offer food. Why is this important, Mr Roof if not fed could claim a violation of his civil right to no unnecessary cruel and unusual punishment. The officers by giving him food prevent him from using this as an excuse in court. It is also a tactic to build trust with a suspectvto get them to confess. Also please look at a map where he was arrested, the closest food was Burger King. You should applaud these officers for making sure that a vile piece of human excrement like Roof would never see the light of day again.

Please take time to understand the law, the human body, and depolicing. Yes depolicing. This is what happens when officers are affraid to perform their jobs due to perceived no win environments. What causes this feeling? Protesters who have no clue what they are talking about. Activists who protest on behalf of murdering gangbangers. Activists who threaten the lives of officers and their families. Activists who interfere with police work with cameras. Activists who block city streets preventing emergency vehicles from taking sick children to the hospital. Depolicing cause spike in crime In Low income areas. Murder rates sky rocket. See Baltimore pre and post riot. So please ask yourself who are you really harming.

Lastly sign the F up to the police department if you think you can do better!

The LP is the group's first studio effort with guitarist/vocalist Pepper Keenan in more than a decade. "No Cross No Crown" was recorded in North Carolina with longtime producer John Custer. CORROSION OF CONFORMITY cut the disc in about forty days over the course of a year. CORROSION OF CONFORMITY guitarist Woody Weatherman told Guitar Interactive Magazine about "No Cross No Crown": "This record was approached a little differently than previous [albums]. We didn't spend a lot of… There was, like, no pre-production; we didn't have much of an idea of shit before we all showed up. It was, like, just… we showed up, [and] we'd do four- or five-day sessions." "As we were writing the songs, it started to take shape," Pepper added. "And once again, it was becoming something more than we… as a unit, it became bigger than the sum of its parts. And so once you get to that thing where it's in your head and you're consumed by it, if it ain't right, it's wrong. You've just gotta keep going at it." "There were several things that we threw in the trash," Woody continued. "We'd spend half a day on somebody's idea, and if it wasn't working after half a fucking day, throw it in the fucking trash and move to the next thing." Pepper went on to say that CORROSION OF CONFORMITY's music still sounds as valid today as it did when it was first recorded. "I think we can look back at C.O.C.'s career, you can look at [all the albums] and go… It sounds weird to say it, but they stand the test of time," he said. "And it's really important that it doesn't sound dated. I don't want it to sound like it's the new millennium or the '90s or whatever; it's gotta sound like… when you play it 20 years later, it still sounds correct." "It's been a conscious thought of ours for a long time," Woody added. "'Let's not make a record that sounds like it was made in 1991 or something. Although we're making a record in 1991, let's try not to do that. Let's make it sounds like it's…' Like Pep said, in 20 or 30 years, it still sounds relevant."

          Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger expected to play against Carolina      Cache   Translate Page      
Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger sat out practice on Tuesday to give his broken left index finger a rest but he is expected to play Thursday night when Carolina visits Heinz Field. Roethlisberger said the finger was “fine” after he threw the ball 47 times in Sunday’s victory over Baltimore. He did leave the game briefly in the third quarter after getting the wind knocked out of him, but he returned after missing just one snap. The 36-year-old is on pace to top 5,000 yards passing for the first time in his career. He came close in 2014 when he tied Drew Brees for the league lead with 4,952. Roethlisberger said reaching the 5,000-yard plateau “is still a pretty big deal” but he is keeping his focus on the team.
          Chu kỳ kinh nguyệt 'khiến phụ nữ thông minh hơn'      Cache   Translate Page      
baomai.blogspot.com

Ban đầu, điều này bị gọi là chứng "cuồng loạn".

Từ những thầy lang có sức mạnh thần kỳ chữa khỏi bách bệnh kể cả nan y thời Ai Cập thời cổ đại đến những nhà triết học để râu Hy Lạp Cổ đại, đàn ông đã nghĩ về chu kỳ của phụ nữ trong hàng thiên niên kỷ.

Các chuyện kể cực kỳ nhiều, từ sự căng thẳng đến hưng phấn tình dục, nhưng có một thứ rõ ràng; đó là hiện tượng này chỉ xảy ra với phụ nữ.

Plato tin rằng chứng cuồng loạn xảy ra vì tử cung than khóc, buồn bã vì không thể mang thai đứa trẻ.

baomai.blogspot.com
  
Thời của ông người ta cho rằng cơn đau trỗi dậy khi phần nội tạng này dạo quanh cơ thể, bị mắc kẹt vào từng phần cơ thể khác nhau. 

Niềm tin này tồn tại mãi đến thế kỷ 19, khi chứng rối loạn này được chữa trị bằng một cách nổi tiếng là đưa phụ nữ vào cơn cực khoái bằng thiết bị rung thời đó.

Thậm chí đến tận ngày nay, ý niệm cho rằng đặc tính sinh học của cơ thể phụ nữ có thể khiến não họ mụ mị vẫn còn là suy nghĩ chủ đạo trong nền văn hóa đại chúng.

Nếu một phụ nữ sầu muộn, người ta sẽ hỏi có phải cô đang "tới tháng" không. Nếu cô cảm thấy ham muốn tình dục, người ta sẽ bảo có thể cô đang rụng trứng.

baomai.blogspot.com
Một số phụ nữ có thể cảm thấy lo âu khi chu kỳ kinh nguyệt đến - nhưng các hiệu ứng khác do chu kỳ kinh nguyệt gây ra thường tích cực hơn. 

Hóa ra không phải điều này là vô căn cứ - một số phụ nữ thực sự cảm thấy lo âu và khó chịu khi đến chu kỳ kinh nguyệt, và đúng là chúng ta thực sự có ham muốn tình dục nhiều hơn vào khoảng thời gian rụng trứng. (Tất nhiên, điều đó không có nghĩa là triệu chứng luôn luôn hoặc thường xuyên có thể giải thích theo kiểu này; quan trọng là ta cần phải nhớ rằng xu hướng dẫn đến những phàn nàn về phụ nữ trong tình trạng như 'cuồng loạn' có thể gây ra hậu quả nguy hiểm.)

Nhưng có một thứ mà nhiều người không biết, đó là chu kỳ kinh nguyệt có thể tạo ra tác động tích cực lên não của nữ giới.

Hóa ra phụ nữ sẽ thông thạo một số kỹ năng hơn, như nhận thức về không gian, sau khi hết chu kỳ kinh nguyệt.

Ba tuần sau đó, họ trở thành người giao tiếp tốt hơn hẳn, và đặc biệt là họ rất giỏi nhận biết khi nào người khác đang cảm thấy sợ hãi.

Cuối cùng, trong một phần thời gian chu kỳ, não phụ nữ thực ra trở nên to hơn.

Điều gì đang xảy ra vậy?

baomai.blogspot.com
Trong suốt chu kỳ kinh nguyệt, não bộ thay đổi - và tất cả mọi thứ từ kỹ năng về không gian hay khao khát tình dục cũng thay đổi

Thay vì là tử cung phá hoại, nguồn gốc chính của những thay đổi lại là buồng trứng.

Cơ quan này tiết ra oestrogen và progesterone với hàm lượng khác nhau trong những thời điểm khác nhau trong tháng.

baomai.blogspot.com
  
Nhiệm vụ chính của các loại hormone này là làm dày thành tử cung và quyết định khi nào nên rụng trứng. Chúng cũng gây ra hiệu ứng nổi bật với não và hành vi của nữ giới.

Các nhà khoa học đã nghiên cứu về chu kỳ kinh nguyệt từ thập niên 1930. Đó là đề tài nghiên cứu cực kỳ phổ biến, và giờ đây ta biết nó có đủ kiểu hiệu ứng kỳ quặc, từ việc ảnh hưởng đến khả năng phụ nữ bỏ thuốc lá đến những giấc mơ nàng có thể gặp mỗi đêm.

Nhưng cả núi kiến thức như vậy không phải là được phát sinh từ sự say mê hiểu biết về sinh học ở nữ giới.

Thay vào đó, những nghiên cứu này được dẫn dắt bởi khao khát tìm hiều xem đàn ông và phụ nữ khác nhau kiểu gì và vì sao họ lại khác nhau vậy.

Một ví dụ về sự khác biệt là từ não chúng ta.

Sự khác biệt thể chất do giới tính có cả ở cơ quan nhiều nếp nhăn này, và các nhà khoa học đã nghi ngờ trong nhiều năm rằng nguồn gốc gây ra khác biệt là do hormone.

"Cơ bản là chúng ta đã nhìn vào những biến động tự nhiên trong nồng độ hormone giới tính mà ta tìm thấy," Markus Hausmann, nhà thần kinh học ở Đại học Durham nói. "Đó có thể là chu kỳ kinh nguyệt ở phụ nữ, hay biến đổi nồng độ hormone testosterone theo mùa ở nam giới. Đó hoàn toàn là thử nghiệm tự nhiên."

baomai.blogspot.com
Sự biến động hormone theo mùa ở nam giới và theo tháng ở nữ giới

Một trong những điểm khác biệt của nữ giới đó là họ có kỹ năng xã hội vượt trội.

Phụ nữ giỏi cảm thông và diễn giải tâm lý tốt hơn - họ hiểu rằng mỗi con người đều có những cách nhìn nhận, quan điểm khác với bản thân họ.

Họ cũng có kỹ năng giao tiếp tốt hơn. Đây được cho là một phần nguyên do khiến trẻ em trai bị chẩn đoán mắc chứng tự kỷ khả năng cao gấp bốn lần, vì các bé gái giỏi che giấu triệu chứng của bản thân hơn.

"Các bé gái biết nói sớm hơn các bé trai, họ nói năng thuần thục hơn đàn ông, và họ đánh vần thực sự giỏi hơn đàn ông," Pauline Maki, nhà tâm lý tại Đại học Illinois, Chicago nói.

baomai.blogspot.com  
Phụ nữ có kỹ năng ngôn ngữ tốt hơn đàn ông, có lẽ là kết quả từ quá trình tiến hóa khi họ cần phải truyền đạt thông tin cho con cái

Ưu thế xã hội này được cho là đã tiến hóa vì từ hàng ngàn năm trước, những người mẹ biết trò chuyện tốt sẽ truyền đạt thông tin quan trọng đến con cái tốt hơn - ví dụ như không được ăn các loại cây có độc.

Nhưng liệu hormone có liên quan gì ở đây? Và nếu có thì liên quan đến mức nào?

Cân bằng hormone

baomai.blogspot.com
  
Trở lại năm 2002, cùng với đồng nghiệp từ Trung tâm Nghiên cứu về Lão hóa ở Baltimore, Maki nghiên cứu về sự biến động oestrogen ảnh hưởng ra sao đến khả năng của phụ nữ trong thời gian mỗi tháng.

Mỗi người tham gia nghiên cứu được khảo sát hai lần: một lần ngay sau kỳ kinh nguyệt, khi lượng oestrogen và progesterone thấp, và một lần khoảng một tuần sau khi họ rụng trứng, khi lượng oestrogen và progesterone cao.

Đó là một nghiên cứu nhỏ, chỉ có 16 phụ nữ tham gia được yêu cầu hoàn thành một loạt các bài kiểm tra về tâm thần. Nhưng phát hiện từ nghiên cứu rất đáng chú ý.

Trong những ngày người tham gia nghiên cứu có nhiều hormone nữ trong cơ thể hơn, thì họ tệ hơn hẳn trong những công việc mà đàn ông thường giỏi hơn (như nhận thức về không gian) và giỏi hơn hẳn trong những việc mà phụ nữ thường nổi trội hơn (như khả năng nghĩ ra từ vựng mới). Khi mức độ hormone của họ thấp hơn, nhận thức về không gian của họ trở lại như cũ.

baomai.blogspot.com  
Sau kỳ kinh nguyệt, phụ nữ có tiến bộ hơn trong nhận thức không gian - một khả năng mà đàn ông thường giỏi hơn

Một khả năng khác cũng tiến bộ khi hormone nữ cao hơn là khả năng "ngầm ghi nhớ", được Maki mô tả là trong vô thức, một kiểu trí nhớ không cần nỗ lực gì.

"Nếu tôi nói với bạn, 'Ồ, giá tiền xe Uber lần trước bạn đi là bao nhiêu - giá đó mắc hơn hay rẻ hơn giá khi sử dụng Lyft?' Và sau đó, tôi hỏi bạn, 'Bạn đánh vần từ fare thế nào?'. Bạn có thể đánh vần nó là f-a-r-e (Giá vé), mặc dù hầu hết mọi người sẽ đánh vần nhầm thành f-a-i-r (công bằng). Bởi vì đâu đó trong não bạn đã ghi nhớ từ "fare" và từ đó được nhấn mạnh."
Những ký ức từ vựng ngầm rất quan trọng trong việc phát triển kỹ năng giao tiếp. Chúng là lý do khiến ta thường thấy bản thân sử dụng từ vựng hoặc cách diễn đạt tối nghĩa, ví dụ như ta nói "Ồ, anh ấy thật bướng bỉnh", ngay sau khi nghe ai đó dùng từ này, hoặc khi ta đọc trúng từ đó trong bài báo nào đó.

baomai.blogspot.com  
Khi những người tham gia nghiên cứu có hormone nữ nhiều hơn trong cơ thể, họ giỏi nghĩ ra các từ vựng mới hơn

Kết quả là, Maki tin rằng những thay đổi hàng tháng như vậy chủ yếu là do oestrogen.

Hormone này tác động lên hai vùng não cạnh nhau. Vùng đầu tiên là phần não trước tên là hồi hải mã (hippocampus), liên quan tới lưu trữ ký ức. Ngày càng có nhiều bằng chứng cho thấy hồi hải mã rất quan trọng với khả năng xã hội, từ việc có thể ghi nhớ trải nghiệm của bản thân sẽ giúp bạn hiểu được động cơ của người khác. Vùng này trở nên to hơn mỗi tháng khi có nhiều hormone nữ xung quanh.

baomai.blogspot.com
  
Vùng não thứ hai là hạch hạnh nhân (amygdala) giúp chúng ta thể hiện cảm xúc, đặc biệt là nỗi sợ và quyết định chạy hay chiến đấu.

Điều hấp dẫn là hạch hạnh nhân có thể rất quan trọng giúp ta tránh các sai lầm xã hội, vì ta có thể hiểu vì sao một người sợ hãi - và quyết định xem liệu ta nó nên sợ hãi theo không - điều này đòi hỏi chúng ta nhìn nhận thế giới theo quan điểm của người đó.

Một khi bạn có khả năng này, bạn có thể tận dụng chúng theo cách khác, ví dụ như đưa ra các phán xét đạo đức hay thậm chí là nói dối.

baomai.blogspot.com  
Khi có nhiều hormone nữ hơn trong cơ thể, phụ nữ có xu hướng quan sát một tình huống tốt hơn từ góc nhìn của người khác

Khi điều này xảy ra, khả năng của phụ nữ nhìn nhận nỗi sợ cũng lên đến mức cao nhất cùng với lượng oestrogen trong cơ thể họ mỗi tháng. Nếu hormone này là nguyên do, nó cũng giúp giải thích vì sao phụ nữ có xu hướng nhìn chung là có kỹ năng xã hội tốt hơn.

Ý tưởng này được ủng hộ bởi thực tế là những phụ nữ không có khả năng sản sinh ra oestrogen không giỏi nhận thức nỗi sợ và có xu hướng kém các kỹ năng xã hội.

Maki tin rằng hầu hết hiệu ứng do chu kỳ kinh nguyệt gây ra với tâm trí chúng ta thuần túy chỉ là vô tình.

Trong nhiều năm, các nhà nghiên cứu nghĩ rằng một số thay đổi hàng tháng có lợi về mặt tiến hóa, như nhiều khám phá cho biết phụ nữ sẽ chuộng đàn ông nam tính và cân đối hơn khi họ đang ở trong thời kỳ dễ có thai nhất.

Tuy nhiên, điều này thực ra không chính xác - rất nhiều nghiên cứu ở quy mô lớn cho thấy không hề có bất cứ liên hệ nào giữa hai yếu tố này.

Sức mạnh não bộ

baomai.blogspot.com
  
Nhưng bất kể vì sao điều này tồn tại, thì sự biến đổi hàng tháng với não bộ của phụ nữ có thể vẫn là ưu thế.

Lý do nằm ở điểm khác biệt căn bản giữa não nam giới và phụ nữ. Não phụ nữ ít bị "lệch" - thay vì chỉ sử dụng một phần của bộ não để hoàn thành công việc như giải toán, phụ nữ có xu hướng sử dụng cả hai phần não bộ.

Hai phần phân chia phải - trái của não bộ khá ổn định. "Hầu hết mọi người đều bị hiệu ứng lệch với hoạt động của bàn tay," Hausmann cho biết.

"Ví dụ, tôi là người thuận tay phải. Điều này cho ta biết đôi chút về vị trí ngôn ngữ trong não bộ của tôi. Những người thuận tay phải có phần ngôn ngữ nằm về phần não trái nhiều hơn người thuận tay trái."

Sự chuyên môn hóa này được cho là hữu ích, vì hầu hết các loài từ cá phổi đến thằn lằn đều có não bộ cấu trúc kiểu này.

baomai.blogspot.com  
Phụ nữ có xu hướng thường sử dụng cả hai phần bộ não, khiến họ linh hoạt hơn trong suy nghĩ

Lý do vì sao não phụ nữ ít bị lệch hơn vẫn còn là bí ẩn lớn. Nhưng điều này cũng có sự dao động.

Vào năm 2002, Hausmann phát hiện ra rằng cùng với với những tính cách "nữ" khác, phụ nữ có xu hướng sử dụng cả hai phần não nhiều hơn khi hàm lượng oestrogen và progesterone tăng hàng tháng. Một lợi thế có thể là sự chuyển đổi này cho phép họ suy nghĩ linh hoạt hơn.

baomai.blogspot.com
  
"Khi người ta có nhiều mô thức khác nhau trong não theo từng giai đoạn trong tháng, và họ trở nên thiên lệch ít hơn hay nhiều hơn, điều đó có thể dẫn đến nhiều chiến lược khác nhau khi họ cần giải quyết một vấn đề đặc thù," Hausmann giải thích. "Vì vậy những người phụ thuộc nhiều hơn vào phần não trái có thể giải quyết vấn đề theo cách logic hơn, và người phụ thuộc nhiều vào não phải có thể dựa vào quy trình tổng thể hơn khi cố gắng xử lý một vấn đề."

Lần tới, khi ai đó hỏi có phải bạn đang có vấn đề với nội tiết không, bạn có thể trả lời là đúng vậy - nhưng điều này không hẳn đã có gì xấu đâu.

Présence Africaine, Ta-Nehisi Coates

Ta-Nehisi Coates est un écrivain et journaliste américain né le 30 septembre 1975 à Baltimore (Maryland). Après des études à l'université Howard de Washington, Coates se consacre au journalisme. Il est correspondant à The Atlantic où il couvre les affaires nationales, et s'intéresse particulièrement aux violences raciales. Il publie en 2008 The beautiful struggle, un essai autobiographique sur son enfance à l'ouest de Baltimore. Il y évoque l'influence de son père, un ancien membre des Black Panthers, l'insécurité de la ville et son expérience de l'école. En 2015, il publie Between the world and me, traduit sous le titre Une colère noire en français, un livre écrit comme une longue lettre à son fils, dans lequel il montre qu'en dépit des décennies de luttes pour les droits civiques, le racisme contre les Noirs reste un problème majeur aux États-Unis. Son livre prend comme point de départ les meurtres d'Afro-américains par la police pour s'interroger sur la précarité du corps des Noirs en Amérique. L'ouvrage reçoit le National Book Award et l'écrivaine Toni Morrison affirme que Coates « comble le vide intellectuel » laissé par la mort de James Baldwin. Il a publié un article sur le « visage de Nina Simone » qui s'interroge sur le choix de l'actrice Zoe Saldana pour incarner le rôle de Nina Simone et qui pose la question de la représentation des Noirs dans la culture américaine.

The Roy Hargrove Factor
by Mark Anthony Neal | @NewBlackMan | NewBlackMan (in Exile)

If the brothers Marsalis were the poster boys for a reemergence of jazz in the mainstream thirty years ago, trumpeter Roy Hargrove was the standard bearer for the flank of “Young Lions” that blew open the door that Wynton and Branford found. Hargrove, who passed away recently at age 49, was the clear star of a group of musicians that included bassist Christian McBride, pianist Benny Green, guitarist Mark Whitfield, fellow trumpeter Marlon Jordan, saxophonist Antonio Hart and Marc Anthony Cary.  Ever the restless spirit, Hargrove found fellow travelers at the other end of the radio dial, among a loose collective of musicians straddling the worlds of hip-hop, R&B and Jazz, including Erykah Badu and D’Angelo. In a career the began when he was 17, Hargrove recorded close to twenty albums as a leader, and earned two Grammy Awards.

"Music has always been at the center of my life," Hargrove told the Los Angeles Timesin a 1994 profile. Like many of the post-Soulgeneration, Hargrove was immersed in the sounds of top-Pop 40, telling Bill Kohlhaase that he listened to “everything there was to be heard on the radio: hip-hop, reggae, basically every style that I could relate to, that I liked, that I could feel. It wasn't until I was 15 that I began to hear about people like Clifford Brown, Fats Navarro, Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard."

The Dallas raised Hargrove recalled in an interview with Dr. Billy Taylor that he was introduced to improvisation as a 4th grader by a grade school music teacher. By the time he was in arts school as a teenager, there was a buzz about Hargrove.  It was, in part, that buzz that got Hargrove an invitation to sit in with Wynton Marsalis – arguably Jazz brightest star  at the time, and only eight years Hargrove’s senior. Marsalis is reported to have remarked, "Man, I heard this little kid today that's gonna be a bitch. No, that's wrong, that kid's a bitch today."  

Hargrove was already deep in the archive of his instrument, telling New York Timescritic Jon Pareles, "I haven't really been the same since I heard Clifford Brown," Mr. Hargrove said. "I found it hard to believe a trumpet player like that, because he had covered so much of the horn technically, but the sound was so warm and not brassy. Then the next trumpet player I heard was Freddie Hubbard, and that really turned my head around." Hargrove spent a year at the Berklee School of Music in Boston, but by 1990 was living in New York City, signed to RCA/Novus, where he released three studio albums Diamond in the Rough (1990), Public Eye (1991), The Vibe (1992), and the live Of Kindred Spirits (1993), before making the move to Verve in 1994 with With the Tenors of Our Time, which surrounded Hargrove with some titans of the instrument  including legends like Joe Henderson, Stanley Turrentine, and Johnny Griffin, and his contemporaries Branford Marsalis and Joshua Redmond.

There is a warmness that you hear on those early Hargrove albums, like his  treatment of James Williams’ classic “Alter Ego” or “Of Kindred Souls.” But what you also heard in Hargrove’s sound, on tracks like his fire and brimstone cover of Miles Davis’ “Milestones” and “Homelife Revisited” is a swagger, befitting a young musician who likely heard Run-DMC’s “Rock Box” or Eric B and Rakim’s “Check Out My Melody” at house parties in Dallas. As David M. Yaffe wrote in his Village Voice profile of Hargrove during a stint at the Village Vanguard in 1996,  “what really distinguishes Roy from earlier trumpeters is his understanding of funk: Originals like ‘Roy Allan’ written for his father-reveal a musical palette not only formed by Dizzy, Fats, and Clifford, but by Parliament, the Ohio Players, and Stevie Wonder. Such distinctions between Roy and his influences are crucial.”

Hargrove’s forays into R&B and Hip-Hop would have to wait; his detour was in the arena of Latin Jazz, where his 1997 album Habana would earn him his first Grammy in the category of Best Latin Jazz Performance (1998). Hargrove would win a second Grammy five years later for a live album, co-led with Herbie Hancock and Michael Brecker.  Moment to Moment (2000), an album of ballads with strings, highlighted Hargrove’s aesthetic range and diverse taste.

But it was Hargrove’s ability to channel the cross-genre sensibilities of fellow trumpeters Quincy Jones, Freddie Hubbard and Donald Byrd that earned his new audiences at the beginning of the new century. Hargrove’s contributions on Erykah Badu’s Mama’s Gun, D’Angelo’s Voodoo, and Common’s Like Water for Chocolate – all released in 2000 – are nuanced, but they had a major impact on the musicality of all three projects. It was in this period Hargrove also contributed, along with the Soulquarian collective and Nile Rodgers, to the Red, Hot & Riot tribute to Fela Kuti.  

As Hargrove told the Daily News in 2003, "People been blasting me in the ear for the longest...They were saying, 'You're the only cat who could do it right.' " Doing it right meant the RH Factor, Hargroves’  jazz-funk collective, which produced two albums and an EP between 2003-2006. Standouts on those RH Factor albums are D’Angelo’s mournful cover of Funkadelic’s “I’ll Stay” and “Kwah/Home”, which featured a then relatively unknown Anthony Hamilton. Famously, Hargrove dropped the RH Factor’s Distractions and his own Nothing Serious on the same day in 2006.

Personal challenges kept Hargrove out of the studio for much of the last decade of his career, though Earfood(2008), and the big band recording Emergence (2009) rate, along with Habana, as his finest moments. Hargrove’s closer on Earfood, Sam Cooke’s “Bring It On Home to Me”, might be the most soulful recording of his career.

Perhaps summing up Roy Hargrove’s career, the late music critic and author Rashod Ollison wrote in the Baltimore Sun in 2006, “No matter what the trumpeter dives into it – pop, hard bop, hip- hop, blues, R&B, Cuban jazz, jazz standards – the native Texan charges the material with soul. It's that essential, transcendental feeling that invigorates and electrifies music, giving it life.”

Excellent points by Baldinger. I'm not sure I blame Joe for the first play of the game, but he is definitely to blame for missing LJ for the TD. The Flacco apologists will tell you LJ was never meant to get the ball. But this is the problem with Joe. His football IQ is so low that he couldn't read the easy defensive read. NOT A SINGLE PERSON COVERED LJ, and he should have seen that pre-snap! Rookies don't even make that mistake. Kids on the playground don't make that mistake. Joe is a waste of cap space, plain and simple. Trade him, Marty and Harbaugh to Tennessee, and they can have a nice hardworking but mediocre team reunion with Peas. Side note: LJ isn't, and will never be the guy either. Why on earth they would waste a draft pick on a QB who can't throw is beyond me. At least you can save on not buying shades, Baltimore fans... the future is not looking so bright.

          Information Warfare and Security Flaws: Why the American Voting System Is Still at Serious Risk      Cache   Translate Page      
As this election’s results come back, they will reveal whether the misinformation and propaganda campaigns conducted alongside the political ones were effective.

As the 2018 midterms proceed, there are still significant risks to the integrity of the voting system – and information warfare continues to try to influence the American public’s choices when they cast their ballots.

On the day of the election, there were a number of early hitches in voting at individual polling places, such as polling places opening late and vote-counting machines not plugged in. But there seem not – at least not yet – to be major problems across the country.

However, not all the election-related news and information voters have been encountering in recent days and weeks is accurate, and some of it is deliberately misleading. As this election’s results come back, they will reveal whether the misinformation and propaganda campaigns conducted alongside the political ones were effective.

Securing election systems

America’s electoral process remains highly fragmented, because of the country’s cherished tradition of decentralized government and local control. While this may leave some individual communities’ voting equipment potentially vulnerable to attack, the nation’s voting process overall may be more trustworthy as a result of this fragmentation. With no unified government agency or office to provide, administer and protect election technologies, there’s not one central national element that could fail or be attacked.

Across the country, though, many districts’ voters will cast ballots with the help of machines that have long-standing security concerns. Fortunately, 45 states keep a paper record of each vote cast – whether for fear of threats to voting integrity or just budget constraints preventing purchase of newer gear. But that means five states – Louisiana, Georgia, South Carolina, New Jersey and Delaware – don’t keep paper records of their voters’ choices.

Voting machine vendors have been reluctant to appear before Congress to explain their systems’ security practices – and shortcomings. However, federal agencies have helped some states reduce the likelihood of voting machines being hacked or physically tampered with.

Beyond voting machines

Election security is about much more than voting machines and vote-counting systems, though they are the most visible technologies at work on Election Day. State systems that track voter registrations, or allow users to register online, are enticing targets for hackers, too. Security firm Carbon Black reported that 81 million voter records from 20 states are available in online forums. This data, obtained by hacking various official and corporate databases, could be used to facilitate voter fraud or sow confusion at polling places on Election Day: How would you feel if you were told that someone using your name and address had already voted?

There are security concerns even in states like Oregon, where everyone votes on paper and mails in their ballots in advance of Election Day. That state’s election officials were targeted by hackers seeking to gain access to state email and database systems. With that access, attackers might be able to digitally impersonate a government official to send false or confusing emails, press releases or other notifications to citizens, journalists or poll workers.

Also at risk are public-facing official websites that carry election information. Merely changing the reported location of polling places or voting hours could prevent some people from voting. Also vulnerable are states’ methods of announcing preliminary election results. At a major internet security conference in August, children were able to compromise replicas of several states’ election-reporting systems. The most remarkable was that in just 10 minutes, an 11-year-old boy cracked the security on a copy of the Florida secretary of state’s website and was able to change the publicly announced vote totals for candidates. That could be enough to cast doubt on whatever was later reported as the official results – and the integrity of the system itself.

Managing information on social media

A more difficult threat to defend against is information warfare, which doesn’t attack voting machines or election officials’ computers. Rather, it targets voters’ perceptions and decisions, seeking to influence how they vote.

Long before the 2016 U.S. presidential election, information warfare was influencing elections around the world, including in Ukraine, Myanmar and Egypt. But after 2016, Facebook and Twitter came under intense scrutiny for their role in providing digital environments that facilitated the spread of misinformation to sow discontent, and special counsel Robert Mueller began investigating Russians’ influence efforts.

In the run-up to the 2018 midterms, Russians and others were still hard at work trying to influence Americans to vote in ways that help foreign interests. In October, the U.S. Department of Justice charged a Russian woman with creating thousands of fake social media accounts allegedly representing American citizens to “create and amplify divisive social media and political content” before the election.

This year, though, unlike two years ago, social media companies are taking action. Twitter and Facebook have both deleted thousands of accounts they identified as engaging in propaganda and influence-peddling. And they have made other efforts to identify and fight falsehoods on their platforms, too.

Nevertheless, online misinformation continues to thrive. More than 80 percent of the Twitter accounts that often shared links to false and misleading information in 2016 are still active today. And the amount of online misinformation is higher than it was two years ago.

Investigating alleged wrongdoing

U.S. intelligence and police agencies are concerned about the potential effects of misinformation on the American electorate. But large proportions of the country don’t trust those organizations to be politically independent. It doesn’t help that the White House continues to claim, without evidence, that voter fraud is a significant problem.

Mainstream news organizations can find themselves under scrutiny too, either for reporting falsehoods that appear to gain traction online or for failing to filter out or properly identify inaccurate information for their readers.

Looking ahead

Protecting democracy is a huge challenge. I’ve written before that it involves more than technical solutions to computer problems. The U.S. government, and the people it serves, must find the desire and the drive to establish secure and trustworthy procedures for running elections across the country. Education is also key, teaching people from an early age how to recognize propaganda and misinformation, and think critically about the information they encounter. Facts are not subject to alternative views; without widespread agreement on common objective realities, society and government cannot function well.

Technology continues to evolve, presenting challenges to individuals and society alike. Emerging “deepfake” technology is already helping create convincing videos of people appearing to say and do things they never said or did. In addition, intelligent social media bots are becoming more human-like, making identifying and blocking them much more difficult. That’s just some of the challenges that democracies will face in the future.

Many of these problems will not have a clearly defined fix, because they involve a nuanced balancing of individual rights and social necessities. Real and lasting solutions must come from civil discourse by rational and objectively informed people who have, above all, the actual honest desire to do it right.

          Bears Rout Turnover-prone Bills 41-9      Cache   Translate Page      
Linebacker Khalil Mack broke into a wide grin when it was pointed out the Chicago Bears defense didn't need him for a second straight week.

"Ha, I might be looking for another job here soon," Mack told The Associated Press.

Sidelined by a right ankle injury, Mack had plenty of reason to joke.

He had just finished watching his teammates force four turnovers, including two returned for touchdowns 3½ minutes apart in the second quarter of a 41-9 rout over the Bills in what proved to be another comedy of errors for Buffalo's anemic offense on Sunday.

Sandwiched between Jordan Howard's two touchdown runs, Eddie Jackson scored on a 65-yard fumble return and Leonard Floyd returned a tipped pass during Chicago's decisive 28-point second-quarter surge.

"It's always great to go out and perform the way we did," linebacker Roquan Smith said. "We definitely did focus on getting the ball out, and we knew when they do come, they come in bunches. So that was one of the main things."

The only disappointment, perhaps, was becoming Buffalo's first opponent in three weeks to give up a Bills touchdown. It didn't happen until quarterback Nathan Peterman scored on a 1-yard run with 5:41 left.

It was the first TD run the Bears have allowed this season, and it ended the Bills' touchdown drought at 187 minutes and 19 seconds — dating to Peterman's 16-yard pass to Zay Jones in a 20-13 loss at Houston on Oct. 14.

The Bears, coming off a 24-10 win over the New York Jets, won their second in a row and improved to 5-3 to match their best start to a season through eight games since 2013.

And the Bears are winning without Mack, the 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, who was acquired in a trade from Oakland just before the start of the season.

The Bills are going from bad to worse in losing their fourth straight, and dropping to 2-7 — their worst record through nine games since a 1-8 start in 2010.

Buffalo hasn't topped 10 points five times this season, and the four turnovers were one short of a season-worst. The Bills had five in a 37-5 loss at Indianapolis two weeks ago.

"I've never been on a losing streak like this," receiver Kelvin Benjamin said. "I'm frustrated now. I'm going to go home and be frustrated, but tomorrow once I come back in, try to brush it off my shoulders and get ready for the Jets."

Peterman threw three interceptions in his first start since a 47-3 season-opening loss at Baltimore. The Bills had no choice but to return to the second-year player with rookie Josh Allen missing his third game with a sprained throwing elbow and Derek Anderson sidelined by a concussion.

Peterman continued playing down to his turnover-prone reputation , though two of the interceptions weren't entirely his fault.

Newly signed receiver Terrelle Pryor caught Peterman's pass and lost control as he turned up field, with the ball landing in defensive back Adrian Amos' hands.

Three snaps into Buffalo's next possession, Peterman's hard pass over the middle struck Jones in the hand and bounced directly to Floyd, who returned it for a touchdown.

"I don't see anybody who's not trying to give it their all," Jones said. "That's just the most discouraging thing about the whole situation right now is that the effort is there."

But is the talent?

Coach Sean McDermott responded defiantly when asked if the Bills have enough talent on offense to compete.

"I believe we do," he said.

The Bills have been outscored 157-46 in their past six.

Peterman finished 31 of 49 for 187 yards and the second-year player has now thrown 13 interceptions on 133 career attempts, including playoffs.

Chicago's Mitchell Trubisky finished 12 for 20 for 135 yards with a 2-yard touchdown to tight end Trey Burton and an interception.

QUIET McCOY

Bills running LeSean McCoy remains stuck in neutral, and didn't stick around to talk about an outing in which he managed just 10 yards rushing on 10 carries, and six days after he had 13 yards on 12 carries in a 26-5 loss to New England. McCoy, who declined interview requests this week, was spotted exiting the locker room before reporters were allowed to enter.

TURNOVERS

The Bills have now turned the ball over 22 times, including 16 interceptions.

The Bears entered the game ranking second in the NFL with 11 interceptions and 17 takeaways.

INJURIES

Bears: TE Dion Sims was being evaluated for a concussion. ... WR Taylor Gabriel did not return after hurting his leg. Coach Matt Nagy said Gabriel is fine.

Bills: TE Charles Clay hurt his hamstring in the first half and did not return. ... Backup RB Chris Ivory favored his left arm while being escorted off the field after being stopped for no gain on first-and-goal from the 1 with 6:27 remaining.

UP NEXT

Bears: Host Detroit on Sunday in the first of three straight against NFC North rivals.

Bills: At New York Jets on Sunday.

          The Longevity Option: An Interview with Steven Wilson      Cache   Translate Page

In late March 2018 Steven Wilson returned to his hometown, London, for a three-night stand at the venerable Royal Albert Hall. The final of those three nights was recorded for a live film titled Home Invasion: In Concert at the Royal Albert Hall via Eagle Rock Entertainment. (A limited edition deluxe vinyl edition will arrive from Caroline International on 22 March 2019.) The release is available in multiple formats.

The performances were also the end of lengthy tour intended to celebrate Wilson's fifth LP, To the Bone, a record that won the former Porcupine Tree man numerous accolades in the press and further solidified his reputation as a diverse writer and performer. The record became a Top 10 record throughout Europe and his best-selling record to date. (That's across a career that so far spans three decades.)

Wilson will arrive in North America for a series of dates beginning 15 November (see below), though he is performing in other territories before that.

Wilson recently spoke with PopMatters about Home Invasion, To the Bone and his strange relationship with the lands where rock 'n' roll began.

When did the idea of Home Invasion present itself?

A couple of things converged and made it a perfect storm in a way. There were suggestions over the last three or four years or three or four tours that I've done that I should document them as a live concert recording. I've been slightly resistant to that idea because I think it's very hard to capture the spectacle, the feeling of being in a room and seeing a live show.

But we were doing three nights at the Royal Albert Hall. It's pretty much my favorite venue in Europe if not the world. Doing three nights kind of takes the pressure off. When you know you're being filmed, you get a little bit self-conscious. You don't relax as much as you would like to. The opportunity to film on the third night at my favorite venue, a venue which also looks absolutely spectacular, beautiful on film, appealed to me.

We had two days to get used to the room, get used to the dynamics of myself and the band and the audience. When we came to the third night, I was very relaxed. I didn't feel self-conscious at all. Hopefully, that comes across in the film. I also figured it was about time and that not everyone is going to have the opportunity to see the ­To the Bone show for real.

It's obvious that the band knows the material but there is a spontaneity there.

I hope so. I think that's also down to us being very relaxed on stage together. We have a lot of fun. Something people mention about the current band and about myself on stage is how much fun it seems like we're having. We really are. It's very relaxed. It's quite informal. The material is quite demanding. It's a three-hour show. Musically, it's not complicated but it's also not 12-bar blues. It takes a lot of concentration. But we put a lot of work into preparing, rehearsing, getting the repertoire up to scratch, preparing the visuals, making the films, making the animations. Working out the quadraphonic sound.

By the time we actually started the tour it was like everything was there. I felt like I could finally relax. All of the preparation, all of the thought and imagination was done with. I have to say that I love being the Master of Ceremonies. I know it's good. I know it's a spectacular show. I know it works. I just step back, enjoy it and revel in the experience of being in the center of this amazingly spectacular show.

I think that does come across in the way I interact with the audience and the rest of the band.

None


Was the live arena something that was immediately comfortable to you or did you have to work at figuring out how to communicate with the audience?

Definitely the latter. Honestly, I never thought I would be able to be a frontman at all. When I began my career, I always imagined I would be the producer/songwriter in the background and that I would work with other performers and singers, particularly. That was certainly true when I started. I had a great project called No-Man with a great singer named Tim Bowness, and I was just the guy producing and putting the tracks together.

But Porcupine Tree came along, almost by accident. That was a solo project and I had to teach myself how to sing and to write lyrics. That became a victim of its own success in a way. Around the second or third album it was still a solo project but I started to get more and more pressure to play live. I found myself thrust into a situation where I had to be a singer and I had to be a frontman and I had to interact with the audience. Honestly, it's taken me the best part of 25 years to learn how to do that.

I still feel that I'm getting better. It really comes down to one thing and one thing only: That's confidence. I know the audience is on my side. I know the show is good, I know the musicians with me on stage are incredible, world-class. I know the guy out front doing sound is amazing. All of these things are about trusting the people around you. That puts you in a much more comfortable scenario. All of those things have conspired, along with practice. Now, I kind of enjoy being the frontman even though that was not something I ever intended.

It has to be gratifying, then, to have three nights at Royal Albert Hall. Not just in terms of, "hey, people like me", but in terms of, "I've realized something I didn't think possible earlier in life."

Absolutely. Stepping on stage at the Albert Hall to do three nights in my hometown is, in many ways, a dream fulfilled. Like a lot of kids, when I started, I wanted to be a rock star. I know that sounds like a slight contradiction of what I said before but, honestly, when I was 14 to 15 years old, and I was listening to Prince and seeing David Bowie on TV, I wanted to be that guy. Now I'm playing a place that many of the people I admired played.

It feels like a vindication for lots of hard work. If I'm honest, I wish it had happened a lot quicker. Five years into my career instead of 25 years into my career. It's been a tough road to get to this point. But I'm still on an upward trajectory in terms of my profile, my record sales, my ticket sales. In a way, if you had given me a choice, 25 years ago, between longevity or to burn very brightly for a very short time, I'm pretty sure I would have taken the longevity option.

You'd been to shows at Albert Hall, you'd seen film of other artists there. Did you have moments where you said, "OK, one of these days, I'll be standing there."

I must have. The first band I saw there, when I was about 20 was 10,000 Maniacs. I remember being absolutely in awe of the venue but being very disappointed in the sound. It's a tough room. It's tough to get a good sound. It doesn't suit everything. It's essentially been designed for classical repertoire. It has ambient acoustics. If you're a band that plays guitar pop, as 10,000 Maniacs did, or if you play metal or punk or hip-hop, whatever, it actually isn't a very good room.

But it's a perfect room for what I do. I saw David Gilmour there a few years ago, and it was perfect for him. His sound was immaculate. You realize that there's certain kinds of music where it's more about the texture, and it's more about the space.

So I remember that first time being disappointed in the sound and being a little bit worried about how it was going to sound. But I needn't have worried. I feel quite comfortable there. There's a strange quality where it's quite big but it feels intimate. The audience is wrapped all around you, so it's not like a traditional 4,000 venue where the guy at the back is literally a quarter of a mile away. Here, the guy with the cheapest ticket is still within eye contact. It feels warm, it feels intimate. That's the kind of thing you can't anticipate until you actually walk on stage there.

None


It seems like your current band is absolutely right for you at this time.

I think this is my favorite iteration of the band because everyone feels like they're working toward a common goal. I say that because I've had a few superstar musicians in my solo band before, extraordinary musicians, but there was always a bit of a fight going on internally. People who wanted to show off what they could do. That's not always in the best service to the music. I feel now that everyone is trying their best to be in service to the music. There's also that very important but elusive quality, chemistry. That comes with time. Alex [Hutchings], the guitar player, joined me for this album cycle, but the band has otherwise been together for a few years, so there is a very strong bond and a very strong chemistry. There's that intuitive communication you get through working with musicians for a long period of time.

When I put a solo band together I knew that I wanted to be the worst musician in my own band. That's probably a strange ambition to have but there is a reason for that and that is because I want these guys to blow me away every night. I want these guys to do things that I could never do. But I want them to do that in service to this music. That's what happens night after night. What could be better?

This film and live album come on the back of To The Bone. I sense that there were some people who probably came into the fold for the first time with it.

Very much so. Sometimes I hesitate to say it because some people can take this in a very, very negative way: But this album has a much stronger pop sensibility. Pop in the way that The Beatles are pop or Abba is pop. I'm not comparing myself to those great artists. But the idea is that these songs focus much more on my songwriting and much more on hooks. And melody. There's less of what you might call the conceptual elements, long solos and tangents. To The Bone is a more direct, more accessible, more immediate record.

I think it's a great doorway for people to walk through into my particular musical world. Two or three songs, in particular, had a lot of radio play, which is almost unheard of in my career. What that's resulted in is new fans and new people listening to the music and using the album as a doorway to walk into a substantial musical universe. That's fantastic to see.

Anecdotally, when I first had To the Bone I was listening to music with a friend of mine who doesn't always share my taste, but she really enjoyed it. So: Well done, Steven.

[Laughs.] I've heard other people say similar things. That's wonderful because I never thought of myself as making "difficult" music. I always thought of myself as making music that was very easy to enjoy. So I always slightly disappointed when people found it difficult or intellectual. I think there was a more conscious effort with To the Bone to keep things on the right side of accessibility without sacrificing any of the ambition.

None


How do you feel about your relationship with North America at the moment? Do you feel that you've broken the markets you want to or do you feel that there's still some legwork to be done on the continent?

America's really tough. I think I'm right in saying that America is tougher than it's ever been if you play music that comes from the tradition of rock. It seems to me that there are two places in the world, and the UK is the other one, where rock music has pretty much gone underground. It's made way for urban and DJ-oriented music. I have no problem with that music but it is so dominant that rock music has almost become the underground music of the day. I find that when I come to America I do the least amount of promotion, find the least amount of interest from the press, that is disappointing because it is there and in the UK where rock music was born and where rock music thrived.

I wonder if the two things are connected: Because these two countries were, historically, the kind of stronghold of rock 'n' roll and rock music and progressive rock that they are so much the ones to essentially turn their backs on it. I'm not talking about the fans. I'm talking about the mainstream media.

Honestly, I've found that America is two steps forward and three steps back. Every time I think that my audience is expanding it seems a little bit tougher to get to them. The interest from the media seems a little bit less forthcoming. I keep coming there, and I keep seeing the audiences show up, but I don't know how they're finding the music.

          Edward H. Spieker      Cache   Translate Page      
There doesn't seem to be an entry for Edward H. Spieker in Biographical Dictionary of North American Classicists, ed. Ward W. Briggs, Jr. (Westport: Greenwood Press, 1994), although I don't have access to the book and therefore can't be sure. Briggs does give a few details in his edition of The Letters of Basil Lanneau Gidersleeve (Baltimore: The Johns Hopkins University Press, 1987), pp. 241-242, n. 1, including Spieker's cursus honorum at Johns Hopkins University:
  • A.B. (1879)
  • Ph.D. (1882)
  • Assistant in Greek and Latin (1882-1886)
  • Associate (1886-1888)
  • Associate Professor (1888-1915)
  • Collegiate Professor (1915-1918)
Here is a necrology by Wilfred P. Mustard, "Edward Henry Spieker, '79, Ph.D., 1882," The Johns Hopkins Alumni Magazine 6.3 (March, 1918) 298:
Edward Henry Spieker, Collegiate Professor of Greek in the Johns Hopkins University, died at his home, 915 Edmondson Avenue, February 20. He was born in Baltimore, April 18, 1859, and educated at the Baltimore City College. He was a member of the Hopkins class of 1879, the first class which won the degree of A.B. in regular course. Entering the Graduate School, he was Fellow in Greek for two years, and was admitted to the degree of Ph.D. in 1882. He was at once appointed an Associate on the Classical staff, and continued in the service of the University until his death. His academic career thus coincides very closely with the actual life of the University itself. As a teacher of undergraduate Greek, he naturally had smaller classes than some of his colleagues, but his interest in University matters was not confined to his own students, or to his own department. As a member of the Committee on Academic Rules and Regulations and Chairman of the Committee on Scholarships and Honors, he had a very wide and intimate acquaintance with every side of our undergraduate life. For many years he rendered faithful and valuable service as Secretary of both the Board of University Studies and the Board of Collegiate Studies. And for thirty years he was Professor Gildersleeve's right-hand man in carrying on the work of the Johns Hopkins Philological Association. He was a very careful and accurate scholar, and his published contributions to the literature of his subject are all of permanent value. They are of the well-considered final kind which leaves little to add, and nothing to retract. In the earlier volumes of the American Journal of Philology he contributed two important studies in Greek Syntax: "Direct Speech Introduced by a Conjunction," and "The Genitive Absolute in the Attic Orators." In the Studies in Honor of Basil L. Gildersleeve he discussed "The Pentapody in Greek Poetry." And he was the author of the standard text-book for the United States on Greek Prose Composition. Professor Spieker was unusually happy in bis family life, and a devout and consistent churchman. He married, in 1891, Miss Adelaide Marie Maute, of Belmont, Nevada, and is survived by his wife, a son, and two daughters. His son, Edmund Maute (A.B., 1916) is now a graduate student in the University.
A list of Spieker's publications:
  • "On Direct Speech Introduced by a Conjunction," American Journal of Philology 5.2 (1884) 221-227
  • "On the So-Called Genitive Absolute and Its Use Especially in the Attic Orators," American Journal of Philology 6.3 (1885) 310-343
  • Review of Adolf Kiessling, ed., Q. Horatius Flaccus, I: Oden und Epoden, 2nd ed. (Berlin: Weidmann, 1890), in American Journal of Philology 11.3 (1890) 374-375
  • Review of Herbert Weir Smyth, Greek Melic Poets (London: Macmillan & Co., 1900), in American Journal of Philology 21.3 (1900) 327-331
  • "The Pentapody in Greek Poetry," Studies in Honor of Basil L. Gildersleeve (Baltimore: The Johns Hopkins Press, 1902), pp. 137-149
  • Greek Prose Composition. For Use in Colleges (New York: American Book Company, 1904)
  • "On the Use of the Dactyl after an Initial Trochee in Greek Lyric Verse," Transactions and Proceedings of the American Philological Association 39 (1908) 5-13

          Comment on A Strange Symbiosis: President Trump and CNN’s President Confirm That They Need Each Other by George      Cache   Translate Page      
Fun Fact: Abraham Lincoln was not a fan of the free press or of the Constitution. Abraham Lincoln was a criminal of high office as a rogue despot. President Trump should emulate his highness and Barack Obama with unconstitutional "proclamations" and executive orders. 1861 John Merryman, a state legislator from Maryland, is arrested for attempting to hinder Union troops from moving from Baltimore to Washington during the Civil War and is held at Fort McHenry by Union military officials. His attorney immediately sought a writ of habeas corpus so that a federal court could examine the charges. However, President Abraham Lincoln decided to suspend the right of habeas corpus, and the general in command of Fort McHenry refused to turn Merryman over to the authorities.Federal judge Roger Taney, the chief justice of the Supreme Court issued a ruling that President Lincoln did not have the authority to suspend habeas corpus. Lincoln didn’t respond, appeal, or order the release of Merryman. But during a July 4 speech, Lincoln was defiant, insisting that he needed to suspend the rules in order to put down the rebellion in the South.

          Here's How We Can Create a Common-Good Politics      Cache   Translate Page      
Can we move away from caricature, away from our fear of the other, and show the “other side” that what matters to them matters to us?

Way back in 2004, I was in Ohio in the run-up to that year’s presidential election. I had a chance to talk to a woman who was one of the undecided “values voters” who would become folklore among political strategists and pundits in the ensuing years.

“I guess I probably like Kerry’s policies more than Bush’s,” she said, “but at the end of the day, when Bush is unsure what to do, I trust that he will pray to Jesus to find his way. And then America will be more likely to find favor in the Lord.”

I shook my head, as I imagine many others do when they encounter political mindsets like that, and walked away. All these years later, though, I have been humbled by a decade and a half of history, and am far more curious today about what that woman, and the many Americans like her, meant by that, and how we can bridge the divide between us—in elections and after the votes are counted.

One way that progressives can do this is to find a new way forward for our own movement, one that opens space for a wider range of values and identities. After an important and polarizing national election, like this one, it is not an easy time but it is a crucial time to take a step back and ask ourselves one very challenging question: What role have we played in creating these deep divisions? Only then, can we examine what we can do to help heal them.

I’m not talking about “centrist” candidates, watered-down compromise positions, or some mythical moderate “middle.” I’m talking about understanding the two typologies that are essentially waging a war over the soul of America.

I believe there’s a road to be found toward common-good politics, where the values that undergird those two typologies can become compatible, and even complementary. Can we move away from caricature, away from our fear of the other, and actually seek to be enriched by taking seriously the building blocks of each other’s worldviews? Can we honor the values that each “camp” holds dear?

I say we can. The values of others are not a threat simply because they’re different from ours, and it is fundamentally counterproductive to imagine that they can be “defeated.” You can’t defeat the other side’s values. In trying to do so, you only strengthen their devotion to them, and vice versa. Instead, if we show others that what matters to them matters to us, that creates the space needed to forge new solutions.

We live in a moment when a narrative has been built in which we appear to be fundamentally at odds. In this narrative, the much-talked-about liberal elite is described as:

  • Global: They enjoy exotic vacations and are more familiar with plane travel than bus travel. They are legitimately global citizens, they prize human rights and they believe in larger interests than the national interest.

  • Universal: They are committed to multiculturalism. They have a belief that all ethical, spiritual and civic traditions have “shared values” that everyone can agree to. They are conceptually committed to a wide circle of concern that ostensibly includes equal treatment for all, regardless of background. They wear a fairness badge proudly.

  • Secular: They believe in reason. Science and rationalism carry the day. They appreciate relativist values that are context-dependent. They are spiritual, but not religious; ethical, not moral.

Conservatives, on the other hand, have come to be defined by localism, particularism and religion:

  • Local: Their specific place matters: the pond where they fish, the town where they grew up, the church where they worship. They value the way life was in these places in the old days.

  • Particular: They are loyal to their tradition, obligated to their community, rigorous in their faith, and committed to their team. They don’t believe all faiths, communities, and traditions are the same, and they don’t expect everyone to be as interested in theirs as they are.

  • Religious: They believe in God. They are in a meaningful relationship with a higher power. Their theology animates their decisions. They work hard every day to live by a moral compass. They might even trust in the candidate who will pray to Jesus to find his or her way.

(For an interesting TED Talk on the typologies and how to combat them, check out Jonathan Haidt’s “The Moral Roots of Liberals and Conservatives” [2008].)

Through my experience, I have become all too familiar with how little tolerance there often is for the liberal side of this typology among conservatives, for sure. And, while the caricature might be unfair, what has been so surprising to me is how intolerant liberals have become of the conservative typology and the lived experiences of those who subscribe to it. For example, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary to hear one of my progressive friends saying, in reference to outsourced manufacturing jobs in the heartland:

“Those towns have been left behind, and there is nothing we can do about it. Technology, globalization and now automation are the new reality. If people can do well in school, relocate and retrain, there’s lots of opportunity out there.”

Or on climate change:

“Science tells us that carbon emissions are causing global warming. We know it is man-made, and if those backward-looking evangelicals would stop hiding behind their irrational claims about God and the end of days, we could deal with this rationally.”

Or on religion:

“America was formed from many faiths and ethnic traditions, and we must give them all space in today’s conversations. In the end, all the great traditions say the same thing about how we treat each other and what is fair.”

Democrats elected in Washington are typically perceived by conservative voters through this framework: global versus local, universal versus particular, and secular versus religious. This contributes to the splintering of the coalition progressives need to build in order to enact the policies they’ve been pushing for. Without a broad majority, there is no action on climate change, gun violence, income inequality, or any of the dire issues that we face. We can build that coalition—if we take seriously the pillars of a worldview that has been ignored for too long: the local, the particular, the religious.

The reality is, forging a new common-good politics requires finding a way that you can love your local place, be particular about your own tradition and believe in God, and still be at home with our shared values. Rather than looking across the ocean, the conservative voter is likely to be concerned about the pond where his dad taught him to fish; rather than believing that she will be the beneficiary of international cooperation, this voter is more likely to be concerned about how her own town thrives again; rather than seeking ecumenical interfaith experiences, these voters remain interested primarily in their own religious background and the moral compass it gives them.

Many of the reforms and causes progressives have championed are compatible with conservative Americans’ devotion to the specificity of place, a patriotic dedication to the unique American experiment, the particularity of community, and personal faith traditions.

If we can’t get inside this worldview and weave it together with our own, many Americans will have little reason to trust the important social programs and reforms that the progressive movement is committed to. The longer we dwell on these questions, the more obvious it becomes how vital it is to develop a political typology where the religious and the secular, the global and the local, the particular and the universal can be woven together authentically.

Closer to home, I’ve seen an encouraging example of how this can work: My wife is as progressive as they come, supportive of all the issues that define modern-day liberals, progressives, and Democrats—and she is also Jewish, born and raised in Baltimore. She loves her hometown, and is committed to seeing it succeed. It’s equally important to her that our children be raised not only with generic universalist values, but within the Jewish tradition—the Hebrew Bible, the Exodus story, the history that belongs very particularly to us. She reconciles the two typologies.

Working-class Americans of all races wake up every day caring about God, family and country (and sports), and if we can’t get inside that worldview, and see the wisdom in it, we will always sound like our ideas are outside of the realm of common sense for too many people.

Millions of people just went to the polls. Many of them felt that there was no room for them in the progressive movement. It’s our job to prove them wrong.

National COSH Announces 2018 
Health and Safety Awards

Activists Recognized for Outstanding Contributions to Empowering Workers and Fighting for Safer Workplaces and Communities

The National Council for Occupational Safety and Health (National COSH) announced today the winners of its 2018 Health and Safety awards, recognizing outstanding contributions towards empowering workers and the fight for safer workplaces and communities.

Recipients were selected based on a wide range of nominations from those involved in the national health and safety movement, including worker centers, unions, COSH groups, and health and safety professionals. The awards will be presented on Wednesday evening, December 5th, as part of the National Conference on Worker Safety and Health (COSHCON18). The conference takes place December 4th through 6th at the Maritime Training Center just outside Baltimore.

“It’s a privilege to recognize these outstanding workers, health and professionals and family members who are making an enormous difference in our workplaces and communities,” said National COSH Co-Executive Director Marcy Goldstein-Gelb. “We know the vast majority of tens of thousands of workplace deaths and millions of workplace injuries that take place each year in the United States are preventable. But prevention doesn’t happen by itself. It takes a commitment to organizing, training, advocacy and empowering workers – and we’re excited to honor individuals who are doing this vital work.”

This year’s National COSH Health and Safety award winners include:

Mark Catlin, MDC Consulting
Tony Mazzocchi Award

Mark Catlin has excelled in providing policy advocacy, technical expertise, and training assistance on occupational and environmental health and safety for all workers. He retired earlier this year as director of the Service Employees International Union Health and Safety Department and currently manages MDC Consulting and Training. For nearly four decades, Mark’s work has impacted the areas of asbestos and lead paint abatement, hazardous waste site remediation and hazardous materials spill response. Mark is also well known for efforts to preserve and document historic health and safety videos, which he has compiled into a unique YouTube channel containing more than 1,100 environmental health and safety videos produced from 1912 to 2000.

Alejandra Domenzain
Labor and Occupational Health Program, University of California, Berkeley
Health and Safety Trainer Award

Alejandra is dedicated to engaging workers and organizations on the issues of work and health and thinking strategically about how to build workers leadership and organizational power. With a diverse background in academic, advocacy, and policy organizations, Alejandra is currently coordinator of public programs at the UC Berkeley’s Labor Occupational Health Program (LOHP). She has conducted groundbreaking research that resulted in recommendations for effective sexual harassment policies to protect service workers and has been a true champion of Our Turn, the sexual harassment action network spearheaded by National COSH.  

Veronica Lagunas
SEIU United Service Workers West (SEIU-USWW)
Health and Safety Activist Award

Veronica is a janitorial worker, union leader, educator, and mother of two who came to the United States from El Salvador and now lives in California. A member of SEIU-USWW, Veronica is a dynamic leader in the effort to bring the #MeToo movement against sexual abuse to the janitorial industry, so that all workers have access to a safe workplace. She helped lead the Ya Basta! campaign and participated in the hunger strike that led to passage of California’s Property Service Workers Protection Act in 2016. Veronica works as a promotora, or community health educator, training co-workers and fellow union members on how to recognize, prevent, and eliminate gender-based violence in the workplace. 

Cindy, Hal, Brian and Clayton Wynne
Family/Community Activist Award

Drew Wynne – Cindy and Hal’s son and Brian and Claytons’ brother – died October 2017 in North Charleston, South Carolina after exposure to a paint stripper containing the highly toxic chemical methylene chloride, which he purchased at a nearby Lowe’s. The Wynne family mourned this tragic and preventable death – and they organized. Joining with the Healthy Chemicals, Safer Family Coalition, Cindy, Hal, Brian and Clayton successfully convinced Lowe’s, Home Depot, Walmart, Sherwin Williams, and other companies to stop selling paint strippers and other products that contain toxic and potentially fatal ingredients. The Wynne family continues to call on other national chains to follow suit and to strongly encourage the EPA to issue an official ban of methylene chloride in order to save lives.

The annual Worker Safety and Health conference – the nation’s premiere gathering of grassroots safety activists - brings together more than 300 people for three days of bilingual panels, workshops and speakers. COSHCON2018 will also include a product and service expo, poster sessions, and a career retrospective exhibit by renowned labor photographer Earl Dotter.

Conference registration is now open, with advance discounts available through November 9. A conference agenda is available here

          Author Ta-Nehisi Coates Speaks at Sold-Out UVM Event      Cache   Translate Page      
Best-selling author Ta-Nehisi Coates was 33 when he voted for the first time. That was in 2008 and he voted for Barack Obama, Coates told the 3,200-strong audience at the University of Vermont’s indoor tennis courts on Tuesday evening.

The West Baltimore, Md., native said he had a “very radical but limited view of politics." Coates had felt that voting was "bad" and thought he would end up endorsing “for the lesser evil, at best.” But a professor friend recently told him, “Yes, that’s true, but I’m in favor of less evil.”

The importance of voting, racism, the music of Marvin Gaye, his experience at his alma mater, Howard University, and the writings of James Baldwin were some of the topics that Coates discussed on election night during an hourlong talk moderated by Major Jackson, an English professor at UVM.

Coates is a national correspondent for the Atlantic magazine, a MacArthur Fellowship recipient and distinguished writer in residence at New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. He is also the writer of a Black Panther series for Marvel Comics. Coates' 2015 book Between the World and Me won the National Book Award for Nonfiction.

The full-capacity event at UVM was attended by students, faculty, alumni and community members. According to Lisa Schnell, interim dean of the Honors College, it was a coincidence that Coates — who has written extensively on racism in the U.S. — was in Vermont on election day.

At the start of the event, the author thanked his friend Rachel for being in attendance. Her presence, he said, was a testament to the life of Prince Jones Jr., their mutual friend who was killed by a police officer in 2000. Coates has written about his anger over his friend's death. An interview with Jones' mother, Mabel, forms the third section of Between the World and Me.

Jones isn’t a hashtag or a smartphone video, Coates went on. “He was a real, breathing person who was taken from us.”

Between the World and Me, written in the form of a letter to Coates' teenage son about racial injustice and what it means to be a black man in the U.S., was selected to be part of UVM’s First-Year Summer Read program. It was mandatory for all freshmen to read the book before…

          Here's How We Can Create a Common-Good Politics      Cache   Translate Page      
Can we move away from caricature, away from our fear of the other, and show the “other side” that what matters to them matters to us?

Way back in 2004, I was in Ohio in the run-up to that year’s presidential election. I had a chance to talk to a woman who was one of the undecided “values voters” who would become folklore among political strategists and pundits in the ensuing years.

“I guess I probably like Kerry’s policies more than Bush’s,” she said, “but at the end of the day, when Bush is unsure what to do, I trust that he will pray to Jesus to find his way. And then America will be more likely to find favor in the Lord.”

I shook my head, as I imagine many others do when they encounter political mindsets like that, and walked away. All these years later, though, I have been humbled by a decade and a half of history, and am far more curious today about what that woman, and the many Americans like her, meant by that, and how we can bridge the divide between us—in elections and after the votes are counted.

One way that progressives can do this is to find a new way forward for our own movement, one that opens space for a wider range of values and identities. After an important and polarizing national election, like this one, it is not an easy time but it is a crucial time to take a step back and ask ourselves one very challenging question: What role have we played in creating these deep divisions? Only then, can we examine what we can do to help heal them.

I’m not talking about “centrist” candidates, watered-down compromise positions, or some mythical moderate “middle.” I’m talking about understanding the two typologies that are essentially waging a war over the soul of America.

I believe there’s a road to be found toward common-good politics, where the values that undergird those two typologies can become compatible, and even complementary. Can we move away from caricature, away from our fear of the other, and actually seek to be enriched by taking seriously the building blocks of each other’s worldviews? Can we honor the values that each “camp” holds dear?

I say we can. The values of others are not a threat simply because they’re different from ours, and it is fundamentally counterproductive to imagine that they can be “defeated.” You can’t defeat the other side’s values. In trying to do so, you only strengthen their devotion to them, and vice versa. Instead, if we show others that what matters to them matters to us, that creates the space needed to forge new solutions.

We live in a moment when a narrative has been built in which we appear to be fundamentally at odds. In this narrative, the much-talked-about liberal elite is described as:

  • Global: They enjoy exotic vacations and are more familiar with plane travel than bus travel. They are legitimately global citizens, they prize human rights and they believe in larger interests than the national interest.

  • Universal: They are committed to multiculturalism. They have a belief that all ethical, spiritual and civic traditions have “shared values” that everyone can agree to. They are conceptually committed to a wide circle of concern that ostensibly includes equal treatment for all, regardless of background. They wear a fairness badge proudly.

  • Secular: They believe in reason. Science and rationalism carry the day. They appreciate relativist values that are context-dependent. They are spiritual, but not religious; ethical, not moral.

Conservatives, on the other hand, have come to be defined by localism, particularism and religion:

  • Local: Their specific place matters: the pond where they fish, the town where they grew up, the church where they worship. They value the way life was in these places in the old days.

  • Particular: They are loyal to their tradition, obligated to their community, rigorous in their faith, and committed to their team. They don’t believe all faiths, communities, and traditions are the same, and they don’t expect everyone to be as interested in theirs as they are.

  • Religious: They believe in God. They are in a meaningful relationship with a higher power. Their theology animates their decisions. They work hard every day to live by a moral compass. They might even trust in the candidate who will pray to Jesus to find his or her way.

(For an interesting TED Talk on the typologies and how to combat them, check out Jonathan Haidt’s “The Moral Roots of Liberals and Conservatives” [2008].)

Through my experience, I have become all too familiar with how little tolerance there often is for the liberal side of this typology among conservatives, for sure. And, while the caricature might be unfair, what has been so surprising to me is how intolerant liberals have become of the conservative typology and the lived experiences of those who subscribe to it. For example, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary to hear one of my progressive friends saying, in reference to outsourced manufacturing jobs in the heartland:

“Those towns have been left behind, and there is nothing we can do about it. Technology, globalization and now automation are the new reality. If people can do well in school, relocate and retrain, there’s lots of opportunity out there.”

Or on climate change:

“Science tells us that carbon emissions are causing global warming. We know it is man-made, and if those backward-looking evangelicals would stop hiding behind their irrational claims about God and the end of days, we could deal with this rationally.”

Or on religion:

“America was formed from many faiths and ethnic traditions, and we must give them all space in today’s conversations. In the end, all the great traditions say the same thing about how we treat each other and what is fair.”

Democrats elected in Washington are typically perceived by conservative voters through this framework: global versus local, universal versus particular, and secular versus religious. This contributes to the splintering of the coalition progressives need to build in order to enact the policies they’ve been pushing for. Without a broad majority, there is no action on climate change, gun violence, income inequality, or any of the dire issues that we face. We can build that coalition—if we take seriously the pillars of a worldview that has been ignored for too long: the local, the particular, the religious.

The reality is, forging a new common-good politics requires finding a way that you can love your local place, be particular about your own tradition and believe in God, and still be at home with our shared values. Rather than looking across the ocean, the conservative voter is likely to be concerned about the pond where his dad taught him to fish; rather than believing that she will be the beneficiary of international cooperation, this voter is more likely to be concerned about how her own town thrives again; rather than seeking ecumenical interfaith experiences, these voters remain interested primarily in their own religious background and the moral compass it gives them.

Many of the reforms and causes progressives have championed are compatible with conservative Americans’ devotion to the specificity of place, a patriotic dedication to the unique American experiment, the particularity of community, and personal faith traditions.

If we can’t get inside this worldview and weave it together with our own, many Americans will have little reason to trust the important social programs and reforms that the progressive movement is committed to. The longer we dwell on these questions, the more obvious it becomes how vital it is to develop a political typology where the religious and the secular, the global and the local, the particular and the universal can be woven together authentically.

Closer to home, I’ve seen an encouraging example of how this can work: My wife is as progressive as they come, supportive of all the issues that define modern-day liberals, progressives, and Democrats—and she is also Jewish, born and raised in Baltimore. She loves her hometown, and is committed to seeing it succeed. It’s equally important to her that our children be raised not only with generic universalist values, but within the Jewish tradition—the Hebrew Bible, the Exodus story, the history that belongs very particularly to us. She reconciles the two typologies.

Working-class Americans of all races wake up every day caring about God, family and country (and sports), and if we can’t get inside that worldview, and see the wisdom in it, we will always sound like our ideas are outside of the realm of common sense for too many people.

Millions of people just went to the polls. Many of them felt that there was no room for them in the progressive movement. It’s our job to prove them wrong.

           THE DANIEL DALE EXPERIENCE: Some of their favorite reporters and claims!      Cache   Translate Page      
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 2018

Anthropology lessons:
Yesterday afternoon, exhausted from the year's longest weekend, we watched two pundit panel discussions.

We watched one discussion live. It was the opening segment of Deadline: White House, MSNBC's 4 PM Eastern show.

As she routinely does, Nicolle Wallace opened the show in a post-journalistic manner. After an opening monologue, she began introducing her panel of pundits—and as she now routinely does, she started her intro like this:
WALLACE (11/5/18): Here to break down the final frantic news on the last full day of campaigning, some of our favorite reporters and friends...
"Some of our favorite reporters and friends!" That's how Wallace introduces her guests at the start of most programs.

Years back, we noted the ways in which the Rachel Maddow Show was structured to make us think that we're spending an hour with a bunch of our friends. We compared the procedures to those of the original Mickey Mouse Club, in which Darlene and Jimmy and the rest of the gang would come out and tell us their names and make us think we were friends.

Wallace is now explicitly packaging her hour as a version of Friends or Cheers. Does this make journalistic sense to Wallace, or is it merely a marketing procedure?

We can't answer your question. At any rate, as the program proceeded, Wallace's "favorite reporters and friends" performed in the way they always do at this point:

All her favorite reporters and friends agreed with each other on every point. In the case of yesterday's opening segment, they churned a highly subjective set of assessments about various acts which they described as "racism."

This is one of our tribe's favorite claims.

Wallace's reporters and friends took turns advancing a thoroughly familiar group assessment. They betrayed no sense that they were, in fact, expressing a subjective set of assessments—assessments which many others may not necessarily share.

They seemed to think, and even occasionally said, that they were simply stating facts. We were very much struck, and deeply discouraged, by their lack of sophistication.

Especially since this is the guild which worked to get us into our current mess, their remarkable lack of sophistication made us fear for our country.

Politely, Wallace's friends each took a turn agreeing with her assessments. In these ways, we learn how nations get split into warring tribe. On the brighter side, we were exposed to an instructive anthropology lesson.

We were very much struck by the lack of sophistication among Wallace's reporters and friends. Also, by the extent to which they all agreed to voice fealty to an Unchallenged Group Assessment.

No disagreement, no matter how minor, was ever voiced. No discouraging words were heard. The favorites gave voice to the Favored Assessments and no one said anything else.

(MSNBC doesn't produce transcripts for Deadline: White House. Depending on various technical matters, you can watch yesterday's full episode at the Deadline web site. We transcribed our Wallace quote there.)

We were struck by the lack of sophistication of Wallace's reporters and friends. We were struck by the ease with which each played his or her role in the chorus.

We thought their discussion was remarkably weak. That said, we thought it provided an anthropology lesson about the species which—or so says Professor Harari—drove all other humans into extinction when it acquired, through chance mutation, the ability to "gossip" and to engage in group "fictions."

Judged in terms of Enlightenment values, we thought the Deadline: White House discussion was remarkably bad. That said, we'd already watched another discussion where the skill level may have been worse.

We'd just finished watching the videotape of Sunday morning's Reliable Sources, CNN's weekly program about the media. "This hour, we are going to go behind the scenes with top editors and critics," CNN's Brian Stelter said at the start of the program.

In the first segment of the show, Stelter asked a perfectly sensible question—a question others have been asking. "I'm wondering if we [in the media] have learned anything since 2016," the cable host sensibly asked.

A desultory conversation followed. Eventually, though, the Baltimore Sun's David Zurawik gave voice to a sensible ambition, with Stelter voicing agreement:
STELTER (11/4/18): I think we can signal there are going to be surprises [on election night]. We just don't know where they're going to happen. We don't know what they're going to be, but there are going to be surprises a la AOC, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and her surprise victory in New York.

ZURAWIK: And I think, you know, Brian, one thing we've learned from 2016 I think is it's crazy to make these predictions if we don't know, because it is hurts our credibility, and we have all of these people pounding our credibility.

In Maryland, we have a race where the incumbent governor in Maryland, it will shock people, is up by 20 points in the polls, almost all the polls. Nobody at the Baltimore Sun is saying this is a done deal, this is what's going to happen. We don't know. Maybe Ben Jealous, the challenger, the Democratic challenger, gets out the vote. He said it's all about getting out the vote on the day.

Four years ago, I wouldn't have been so hesitant. Now, every third paragraph is, "If Jealous is right and they do get out the vote." And that—

STELTER: But to your point on credibility, look at this Gallup polling from 2016 versus 2018. There's actually been an increase, an improvement in people trusting or believing the press is trying to get it right. Of course, that was from a record low in 2016. It has ticked up to about 45 percent this year.

Still a low number but to your point, David, we can improve our own credibility, try to make those numbers go up a bit, or they can drop even further depending on how the press is careful in assessing this election.
You'll note that, to the defiantly impartial Stelter, Ocasio-Cortez, who we admire, is now a three-initial star, like JFK or LBJ before her. She is simply AOC, and she scored a big surprise win.

A conservative skeptic might almost think that a form of bias was seeping through in Stelter's highly familiar treatment of "AOC." A jaundiced conservative might have a similar reaction when Zurawik says that he and his colleagues are refusing to predict a big re-election win for the Republican governor of their state, despite his massive lead in the polls.

A conservative skeptic might think such things! Still and all, Zurawik made an excellent general point about the dumbness involved in the pundit corps' love of utterly useless, time-killing prediction fugues. Eventually, he and Stelter agreed on a larger excellent point:

Media figures "can improve [their] own credibility" with the public by engaging in careful journalistic behavior. We'd call that a sensible point.

Stelter's opening segment ended on that thoroughly sensible point. Media figures should behave in ways which will enhance their credibility.

Then came Stelter's second segment, and with it the deluge. Daniel Dale joined the panel and, in a depressing anthropology lesson, we thought we saw the remarkable limits of pundit skill levels and thought. All week long, we're going to call it The Daniel Dale Experience.

Dale writes for the Toronto Star; he seems like the world's nicest person. But in Stelter's second segment, his panel acted like an even less impressive version of "our favorite reporters and friends" as they applauded Dale for his work as a full-time fact-checker of Trump.

Long ago and far away, Aristotle is said to have made a famous assessment about us humans, "the rational animal." Twenty-five hundred years later, the greatest logician since Aristotle devoted his life to trying to show how we humans can possibly know that 2 + 2 = 4.

We'd have to say that Godel's life provides another anthropology lesson. We're still hoping to return to that comical but instructive story, and on to the logical work performed by the later Wittgenstein as he threw his earlier puzzling work under the logical bus.

Like the wily tactician Odysseus, we've been trying to make our way home, in these and related matters. Tomorrow, though, we'll discuss The Daniel Dale Experience, and we'll ask if our species is skilled enough to retain our threatened Enlightenment culture.

We have a democracy if we can keep it! Borrowing from the Dylan lyric, we believe Benjamin Franklin said that.

Tomorrow: Dale spots an obvious lie

          The Dialectic of the Freak: On John Waters' 'Female Trouble'      Cache   Translate Page      


None


By marking the perimeters of the acceptable, by opening a threshold onto the chaos of madness and the entropy of unchecked deviance, the freak in Waters' works performs a social service, thus qualifying its vaunted difference and reflecting society itself in the funhouse-mirror of its own self-obsessions.

The filmic oeuvre of John Waters is replete with oddballs. That's his stock in trade. Starting off as an independent filmmaker in Baltimore—funded by his parents (he paid them back) and using his friends as his actors—Waters sought to foment outrage and delight from audiences through his ability to make the shocking amusing and somehow invigorating. Although he was often accused of simply displaying poor taste, such criticism is not entirely accurate and far from fair. Rather, he cultivated poor taste. In Waters' work, poor taste is a manner of refinement that attains a strange air of considered sophistication and knowing advertency. Casual gaucheries would not suffice. Waters' deployment of deviance is strategic, his vulgarities calculated to make a specific impact that navigates deceptively simple social observations with the acerbic aplomb of an intentionally cheap irony.

His films, particularly the early pre-mainstream works, explore the role of the outsider from the point of view of those insistently proud of their ostracized position, that status of exclusion celebrated as tantalizingly exclusive. Cinderella (Mary Vivian Pearce) in 1969's Mondo Trasho, attains magical bird feet that instantly transport her to various locations around Baltimore. Lady Divine (played by Waters' muse, Divine) in Multiple Maniacs (1970) operates the Cavalcade of Perversion, a freak show that includes such featured acts as the "Puke Eater"; she later gets raped by a giant lobster (an outré experience to top all others). In Pink Flamingos (1972), the characters compete for the title of "Filthiest Person Alive", perform sex acts that include live chickens, tie sausages to genitals, and eat dog feces. Female Trouble (1974) follows the exploits of Dawn Davenport (again Divine) as she descends into the depths of depravity, making manifest a mantra of "crime is beauty", and attaining fame through gratuitous acts of grotesque debauchery.

Waters concerns himself in these works with the anomaly, the aberration, the oddity, the eccentric, the misfit, the abnormal, the outré—in short, the freak. These are exploitation films to a degree (exploiting the audience's willingness to view "surviving" a film as tantamount to a badge of honor as much as exploiting the actors' willingness to play at debasing themselves) but they are also, and more importantly, meditations on the nature of the freak. If there can be said to be some kind of philosophical import to the Waters film, it is this: Waters executes a dialectical examination of the freak through an immanent analysis of the outsider, following its internal movements toward a negative critique of society (that is, an exposition of the intrinsic contradictions upon which society operates), but ultimately demonstrating that the liminality of the freak is an integral part of the social whole. By marking the perimeters of the acceptable, by opening a threshold onto the chaos of madness and the entropy of unchecked deviance, the freak in Waters' works performs a social service, thus qualifying its vaunted difference and reflecting society itself in the funhouse-mirror of its own self-obsessions. In this sense, Female Trouble, newly reissued on blu-ray by the Criterion Collection, serves as a treatise on the dialectic of the freak and reveals the speculative thought that ought to undergird the peculiar pleasure we devotees of Waters (and other similar filmmakers) find in revulsion.

The aberrant plays a vital role in the way we relate to the world and understand its motive force, its development, its ontology of dynamic Becoming over an ontology of static Being. Indeed, the aberration is the engine behind the Darwinian understanding of evolution; it is the prick that punctures the equilibrium of relatively changeless eras, that ruptures and subverts the plateaus of stability. "Survival of the fittest" on its own is not a catalyst for change. Evolution in its developmental sense requires an anomaly that slips the traces of conformity. Moreover, this Darwinian insight reveals the importance of the individual as the motivating factor in the progress of the whole, for the isolate (the anomaly, the aberration, the misfit) is by definition the individuated, the particular. The sudden veer that marks the evolutionary leap is the byproduct of the one impacting the many. The "freak", when successful, charts the path of the future of the normative.

Of course, there's an inherent risk involved. Nature throws forth all manner of aberration and very few instances of the anomalous gain traction. Most are simply discarded as the equilibrium stubbornly resists puncture. In this manner, the misfit of nature doesn't always blaze the trail of an actualized future, but rather serves as the cartography of potentiality, the map of what might have been but was not.

The art world, in its Romantic-Modernist guise, also venerates the outsider, here touted as the genius. The genius, according to Immanuel Kant, "gives the rule" to art. If art is, for Kant, by definition not nature (that is, it is artificial) and yet seeks to approximate nature in its manner of operation, then the genius is the underlying motive agency that propels art on its way, that guides it on its unchartable path toward a telos that cannot be known or fully realized. But again, caveats abound. The genius in art must break with tradition only to the extent that he (in these accounts, it is almost always a "he") thereby furthers its trajectory, reinvigorating that tradition rather than annulling it. Critics laud figures like Beethoven or Picasso, crediting them with injecting a new vitality into the tradition to embolden it, not to anesthetize it. Even an Arnold Schoenberg maintains and emphasizes the traditional values of motivic development and formal integrity while breaking with the blandishments of tonality. Artists too far afield from tradition (the Henry Dargers and Harry Partches of the world) remain as intriguing side lights, encouraging speculation into what art might be like if it were to be something else altogether. And yet they perform a vital function; they serve as signposts of the outer limits—still art and yet not quite, recognizable only in their resistance to recognition.

The roots of the freak show go back to the 16th century when people no longer saw physical deformity as the visible manifestation of a deformation of the soul.

Already we can see an internal contradiction arising in the nature of the freak. The freak incites change but for that change to be effective, the freakishness must be absorbed into the operative means of society; that is, it must be added to the "way things go". If the freak is the catalyst for change then, on some level, it must cease being the freak. On the other hand, the freak serves as the outlier, the limit case that demonstrates the outer border of the sensical, of the recognized. Insofar as it's recognized as such, the freak is "made sense of" but only insofar as it's cognized as not quite making sense. The unassimilable freak plays an important role in the structure of society by marking the ends of the territory; its place in society is to be displaced.

Moreover, there is much to be gained by exploring a brief genealogy of the freak in modern western civilization. The roots of the freak show go back to the 16th century when people no longer saw physical deformity as the visible manifestation of a deformation of the soul. Prior to this era, polite society shunned the deformed in fear that the "evil spirits" they embodied might get loose and ravage the bodies of the uninfected. In other words, paradoxically, the advent of the freak show may be viewed as a sign of (circumscribed) enlightenment. These men and women were no longer seen as accursed, but rather as medical and biological curiosities, worthy of examination and consideration. The separation of physical and spiritual beauty was a mainstay of aesthetic inquiry in the 16th and 17th centuries as can be witnessed in the Canzoniere by Petrarch, the sonnets of Shakespeare, and the portrait of Francisco Lezcano, a "dwarf" in the nomenclature of the day, by Diego Velazquez. Velazquez provides an accurate rendering of Lezcano without symbolically belittling him. He strikes a noble pose, occupies the majority of the canvas, and is not reduced to ridicule by exaggerating his diminutive stature.

By the 19th century, impressive profits were being garnered by traveling "freak shows" and so-called "sideshows". Notice the implications of the latter term. These were entertainments that were "on the side" of the main concerns. They were marked as outré, as slightly out of the way. No longer were all of the "freaks" suffering from medical abnormalities (although certain performers were, of course). Certain of the freaks were now self-selecting and were featured because of their peculiar abilities rather than owing to deformity. Sword swallowers and contortionists now populated such entertainments. The freaks, such as the diminutive Tom Thumb promoted by storied manager P.T. Barnum (a distant cousin to Tom Thumb), often became noted celebrities who carefully cultivated their public personae and rigorously separated their private lives from their professional endeavors. The freak show was now a strange and captivating mélange of scientific inquiry and entertainment. And yet the showmen were careful to keep the authority of the medical profession at arm's length lest a clear diagnosis dispel the mysterious allure of the deformity. If it can be easily explained, it no longer engages the fickle emotion of wonder.

Such films argue that by dismissing the notion of the freak in a reasonable urge to eliminate discrimination, we lose a means of viewing the world that encourages difference, possibility, the unexpected.

At the turn of the century, interest in the freak show declined. They began to be portrayed in the press as cruel exercises in ostracism and degradation. By the time the freak show made its first real foray into film, in Tod Browning's 1932 film Freaks, in which a woman feigns romantic interest in a sideshow dwarf in order to bilk him of his money, the public had little patience for such forms of entertainment. The film received a great deal of negative criticism and was edited extensively. It has since emerged as a cult classic and can be seen as the progenitor of a certain approach to film that highlights the possibilities inherent in the position of the radical outsider, the moral codes cultivated by groups largely left to their own devices, and the peculiar prismatic understanding such groups offer of the larger body politic. Such films, Waters' films prominent among them, attempt to undermine what might be termed the dogmatism of the freak (the notion that any examination of outliers egregiously involves exploitation). Such films argue that by dismissing the notion of the freak in a reasonable urge to eliminate discrimination, we lose a means of viewing the world that encourages difference, possibility, the unexpected. The point of the freak for these works is that it resists conforming to the quotidian notions we employ to make sense of the world.

This makes Dawn Davenport (Divine) a sort of patron saint of freakdom. It isn't that Dawn wants anything all that different from what a great number of people desire. She wants to be glamorous and fashionable (as a high schooler she insists that she had better get some cha cha heels for Christmas). She wants to rebel against parental authority (in her case, she topples the Christmas tree and then has sex with a random stranger—also played by Divine, who for the remainder of his life enjoyed answering "Go fuck yourself" with "I've already done that"). She wants financial success and security; she longs for fame. Dawn differs from most other people not merely in the lengths to which she is willing to go to attain those goals, but more importantly, in the absurdist moral and aesthetic positions she occupies in her understanding of the goals and their place in the world.

Falling under the spell of Donald and Donna Dasher (David Lochary and Mary Vivian Pearce)—the owners of the Lipstick Beauty Salon, a business that carefully selects its clientele based on their penchant for depravity—Dawn espouses the belief that "crime is beauty" and that the further she is willing to transgress social norms of decency and proper comportment, the more beautiful she becomes. At first, this means that the Dashers photograph her in the commission of crimes but when rival Ida Nelson (played with characteristically bizarre aplomb by Edith Massey) hideously disfigures Dawn's face with acid, the notion of beauty moves toward an equivalency with repugnance. The film continues down the path of this inverted logic to the point that Dawn has her own popular nightclub show where she cavorts in a tub full of dead fish, jumps on a trampoline, and convinces an audience member to allow himself to be murdered by her in his quest for vicarious fame.

Here we begin to discern the dialectical nature of the film's investigation of the freak. The Hegelian dialectic was developed to free reason from its Kantian bind. Kant held that we could not properly think that which was beyond our conceptual grasp and that there was a sharp distinction between our experience (the phenomenal realm) and things as they were in-themselves (thenoumenal realm). Owing to this division, we can never properly think (or encounter) the particular (what Hegel terms the "unconditioned"—meaning, in part, that we seek to encounter it on its terms rather than explain it away as a result of its causes) because we can only understand items in the world by subsuming them beneath concepts (which have an element of universality to them). Hegel sought a means to escape this bind but without leaping over reason as such. Hegel grounded his attempt in his take on "the concept" (der Begriff). The concept, for Hegel, represents the inner nature of a thing (this is reminiscent of the Aristotelian essence). For Hegel, this concept involves a thing's inherent movement; the inner nature of a thing drives it toward some end, some telos. In tracing the movement of thought in relation to the concept, one traces the inner movement of the thing in question. An element of that inner movement is the thing's connection to the greater whole. Many contradictions we encounter in thinking about a thing involve a confusion of level (thinking of a part as though it were the whole).

Female Trouble, indeed all of Waters's early output, works its way through a dialectical meditation on the nature of the freak. The theses of the film (in both the Hegelian and the quotidian sense) are on the one hand, that "crime is beauty", and on the other hand, that the freak is a particular (an individual) who is so far outside of the norms accepted by society as to be monstrously self-sufficient. We saw a hint of the latter in the early concern with the freak show itself: showrunners kept doctors at a remove from the performers so that their aberrance would not be explained away as simply another in a series of cases of malady x.To account for the freak in this manner is to erase its radical difference. It continues to occupy a minority position, but is no longer unique, no longer a particular. The edict that "crime is beauty" is equally proposed as a monstrous position, an inversion of our typical understanding of the relationship between immoral legal transgression and aesthetic value. Beauty is attributed traditionally to righteousness, in part, because both beauty and righteousness are seen to possess the trait of "fittingness". In short, the beautiful is that which is fully formed in the right proportions (the Kantian example is the painting in which there are neither too many nor too few brushstrokes, and in which everything is properly arrayed). Crime, by definition, is a flouting of conventional balance and equanimity. "Crime is beauty" appears to be a contradiction in terms; it stands alone as an edict that fails to comport with our understanding of the world and hence a mere aberration, destined to be dismissed out of hand.

None


Far from embodying free expression of the self, the social norms of beauty (the emphasis on proportion, profitability, association with certain expectations regarding sexuality, etc.) are among the many fetters of the unfree. In this sense, the edict "crime is beauty" calls to attention the transgressive qualities we attribute to beauty but so rarely find in things deemed beautiful.

And yet both theses are hardly as self-sufficient or as easily dismissed as they first appear. There can clearly be no sense of a freak without a normative realm with which to compare it. But more to the point, neither the category of the freak nor of the normative is nearly as stable as one might innocently believe. Our potted history of the sideshow (our genealogy of the freak) has already demonstrated that. What's even more intriguing is the lengths to which people go to maintain the category of the freakish. If a doctor explains a condition away as malady x, the person may be unfortunate but is not a freak. The allure of the freak is its particularity, its seeming uniqueness. Hence, the self-identification with freaks on the part of teenagers (think of the television show Freaks and Geeks, but really nearly any form of entertainment involving adolescents as the main characters—a fine recent example is the Netflix show Big Mouth). At that stage of life, so concerned with discovering what makes a person an individual but also (and seemingly contradictorily) seeking a means of fitting into larger social norms, teens cannot help but associate themselves with the freakish—a seeming aberration, always on the edges of belonging. The promoters of the sideshow sought to protect the freak from a reduction to a category because the freak was seen as the preserve of individuality. Thus, the freak embodies a contradiction: it is the emblem of the unique and yet that status precisely depends upon its relationship to the normative.

Beauty obtains within a similar (but perhaps more elusive) contradiction. Kant defines the beautiful, in part, as that which we can grasp adequately with our faculties of imagination and understanding. In essence, we are able to "master" the beautiful object, to take in its various qualities and see how they cohere—even if we are unable to provide a specific category for the experience. Beauty is social in one sense. Kant says that when we declare something beautiful, that declaration differs from calling it pleasant. Something (say dill pickles) can be pleasant to me and I don't expect it to be pleasant to you; but (at least for Kant) when I claim something to be beautiful, I anticipate and expect your assent. In another sense, Beauty involves not a social decree (thou shalt find x, y, and z beautiful) but rather derives from the functioning of our faculties (faculties that any healthy person shares).

But we don't "master" the social and we certainly don't "master" the law. It is imposed upon us. Nor does the law (the social) derive from the common functioning of our faculties. It is imposed in order to maintain power relations (often to our detriment with respect to personal freedom). Far from embodying free expression of the self, the social norms of beauty (the emphasis on proportion, profitability, association with certain expectations regarding sexuality, etc.) are among the many fetters of the unfree. In this sense, the edict "crime is beauty" calls to attention the transgressive qualities we attribute to beauty but so rarely find in things deemed beautiful.

None


It is this reversal, the realization that the freak is an essential part of a social whole and the realization that beauty falls into contradiction by attempting to be both normative and expressive of individuality (transgressive), that Female Trouble executes in such uproarious fashion. Fame and other social aims depend upon these contradictions: to stand out enough to be noticed and desired but not so much to be reviled. Of course, we all know, as the film demonstrates, that fame often catapults its chosen progeny beyond good and evil. Somehow it comes as no surprise that once Dawn Davenport achieves a kind of fame, that this fame should continue under the force of its own propulsion. Anchoring the whole construct, of course, is the riotous performance of Divine. The manner in which Dawn's face illuminates with the anticipation of the adulation of the crowd, the sheer glee she finds in posing despite (or maybe because of) the deformity of her acid-scarred face, the grandiose exuberance of her revelry in crime broadcast before a captivated public—all this speaks to the strange contradiction of the freak: we want to be different, we want to belong, we want to belong by being different.

Criterion Collection has recently released a Blu-Ray edition of Female Trouble that returns the film to all its garish brilliance. There are several extras here, including an audio commentary by Waters from 2004; new and archival interviews with Waters, cast, and crew; deleted scenes and alternate takes; and a behind-the-scenes documentary by Steve Yeager. The extras are all mildly entertaining and worth a viewing but the real allure here (as it should be) is this ever-quotable, ever-watchable classic film.

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC
320 AM EST Wed Nov 7 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure will move overhead through Thursday, with the next
low pressure system moving across the region Friday. Canadian
high pressure will build overhead during the weekend.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
A ridge of surface high pressure will build overhead through today
and tonight, keeping most locations dry. However, a shortwave in the
fast southwest flow aloft will move across the Mid Atlantic states.
This will lead to an increase in mid level clouds by the afternoon,
and potentially even a few light rain showers or sprinkles from this
afternoon and into the first half of tonight, mainly west of the
Blue Ridge and into central VA and southern MD. However, most
locations will remain dry and any precipitation will be very light.
High temperatures today will reach the 60s across the majority of
the region, with lows tonight in the 30s/40s.

&&

.SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/...
Surface high pressure will be at its strongest overhead on Thursday.
This will lead to a partly to mostly sunny day with high
temperatures in the 50s for most.

By Thursday night, a large upper level trough will dig southward
into the northern Plains as additional upper level energy ejects
eastward from Colorado and into the mid-Mississippi Valley. This
will eventually lead to surface cyclogenesis near the Ohio
Valley by Friday morning with warm air advection ensuing across
the mid- Atlantic Thursday night and into Friday morning. Thus,
expecting increasing chances of rain Thursday night, and
especially on Friday as the surface low moves northeastward
through the eastern Great Lakes, dragging a cold front towards
the region and secondary cyclogenesis occurs along the eastern
seaboard during the day Friday. There is potential for some
light mixed precip across the highest elevations Thursday night
into Friday morning, but little if any accumulation/impact
expected. Lows Thursday night in the upper 30s to low 40s, with
highs Friday in the 40s/50s.

Cold air advection will follow the frontal passage Friday night,
with shower chances tapering off, except across the upslope region
near the Allegheny Front, where a period of upslope snow appears
likely. Lows will range through the 30s to low 40s.

&&

.LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
Low pressure will be departing to the northeast Saturday as Canadian
high pressure builds in from the Ohio Valley. The pressure gradient
between the two will result in blustery northwest winds, which will
usher in a winter-like airmass to the Mid-Atlantic.

The high center will begin to retreat to the north Sunday night as a
large trough digs into the central part of the country. ECMWF/UKMET
are slower and deeper (ECMWF actually cuts the low off) as opposed
to the GFS/CMC. The slower and deeper solution allows additional
time for the high (source of cold air) to lift out, and also results
in a low track up the Appalachians, whereas the quicker solution
keeps the low track offshore with less time for cold air to exit.
This brings precipitation type into question, particularly over the
higher terrain. For now, will broad brush a chance of rain or snow
over higher terrain where its climatologically most favorable at
this time of the season, with plain rain elsewhere. Also was more
broad with PoPs given timing differences, with chances peaking
Monday night into Tuesday. Although precipitation is likely at some
point early next week, did not have the confidence to go with likely
PoPs in any one 12-hour period.

&&

.AVIATION /08Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...
Predominantly VFR is expected through at least Thursday. Some patchy
fog is possible early this morning, but drying westerly flow will
lead to a decrease in coverage towards sunrise. Otherwise, mid-level
clouds will be on the increase today, and a few light
sprinkles/showers are possible, mainly CHO. Most terminals will
remain completely dry. VFR will continue tonight and Thursday under
surface high pressure.

Chances for low stratus and rain will increase later Thursday night
and especially Friday as a low pressure system moves towards the
region. MVFR/IFR likely.

VFR expected this weekend with NW winds (gusty Sat, 20+ kts).

&&

.MARINE...
Mainly sub-SCA conditions are expected today. A brief period of near-
SCA winds are possible early this morning, but should be short-lived
and sporadic if it occurs. A northerly surge of winds is then
expected late tonight and into Thursday, and a SCA is in effect for
portions of the lower tidal Potomac and central Chesapeake Bay.

Additional SCA conditions are then possible Friday and Friday night
as another low pressure system affects the waters.

Gusty NW winds between low pressure departing into New England and
high pressure building in from the Ohio Valley will likely warrant a
Small Craft Advisory Saturday.

&&

.TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING...
Anomalies are expected to decrease slightly through tonight in
northerly flow, but increase again as flow goes onshore with the
approach of low pressure moving up the coast late in the week, which
could result in near minor flooding at some locations.

&&

.LWX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
DC...None.
MD...None.
VA...None.
WV...None.

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC
334 AM EST Tue Nov 6 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
Low pressure will move northeastward from Michigan into southern
Ontario today. A cold front associated with this low will pass
through our area during the day today. High pressure will
return for the middle portion of the week, but low pressure will
impact the area Friday. Canadian high pressure will build
overhead during the weekend.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/...
Surface low pressure over southwest Michigan early this morning will
move northeastward and into southern Ontario through the day today.
A warm front will lift northward this morning followed quickly by a
surface cold front this afternoon. Areas of drizzle, low clouds, and
fog exist across the region early this morning and this will persist
for much of the morning.

Out ahead of the cold front, southwest low level flow will markedly
increase with 850mb winds of 60 knots overspreading the area. This
may lead to a window of near Wind Advisory criteria gusts (~40
knots) over the ridge tops of the Allegheny Front and Blue Ridge,
but have kept slightly below given likely sparse nature. Some weak
instability (100-500 J/KG) of SBCAPE will develop out ahead of the
cold front, although areal extent of this is in question given
widespread low clouds this morning. An area of showers and possibly
some embedded thunder will then move from west to east along and
ahead of the front through today, from roughly 7-11 AM west of the
Blue Ridge, to 9AM-2PM in the metro corridor, and in the afternoon
hours in southern MD. With marginal instability but high shear
levels, potential does exist for a severe threat, mainly in two
forms. The primary threat will be associated with a "fine line"
along the front, with a secondary threat with anything discrete that
can develop ahead of it. The main concern will be gusty/damaging
winds, but an isolated tornado is also possible given magnitude and
direction of low level shear. Activity will likely have little
actual thunder/lightning. The Storm Prediction Center has outlined
the area of the greatest risk in a Slight Risk essentially S/E of I-
95.

Temperatures will be slow to rise given the morning low clouds,
drizzle, and fog, and for areas N/W of I-95, temperatures will
actually likely max out following the frontal band of
showers/thunder. Highs in the 60s to low 70s.

&&

.SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/...
Surface high pressure will then build into the region overnight and
into Wednesday. This will lead to clearing skies and drier weather
this evening and tonight. Lows in the 40s.

A baroclinic zone will remain near the region, and some upper level
energy will pass by in the fast flow aloft. Therefore despite
surface high pressure, clouds will be on the increase Wednesday
afternoon and into Wednesday night, and its even possible a few
light rain showers/sprinkles are observed. Highs Wednesday 60-65F
with lows Wednesday night in the 30s/40s.

High pressure and dry weather is expected Thursday with highs in the
50s. The next system ejecting out of the southern Plains will then
begin its approach Thursday night with gradually increasing chances
of rain by Friday morning. Lows around 40F.

&&

.LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
Guidance seems to be coming into better agreement with the late week
system. One area of surface low pressure forced by upper troughing
tracks up the Appalachians, while another develops near a baroclinic
zone near the Mid-Atlantic coast. A surface high pressure will be
stationed over northern New England. The whole system will move
northeastward Friday into Friday night, with rain expected across
much of the area. A few wet snowflakes can`t be ruled out over the
highest terrain at the onset early Friday morning, but not enough to
include in the explicit forecast (unless things trend a bit colder).

High pressure will build in from the Midwest and Ohio Valley over
the weekend, bringing much cooler air. As the high lifts out,
another area of low pressure may try to develop in the vicinity of
the Mid-Atlantic coast, but there is very large model spread in
placement, timing and existence of this next system.

&&

.AVIATION /09Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
Several aviation weather concerns exist today. Widespread IFR/LIFR
ceilings in low stratus and MVFR/IFR visibilities in areas of
fog/drizzle exist early this morning and this will persist for much
of the morning before improvement this afternoon and evening. In
addition, low level winds will be increasing markedly through the
morning with low level wind shear expected as FL020 winds reach 45
knots out of the south/southwest. This wind shear will lessen this
afternoon. And third, showers and possible thunderstorms will move
across the area today, with potential for additional restrictions in
a period of heavy rain, and potential for gusty winds.

VFR is then expected from late today and through at least Thursday
as surface high pressure returns to the region. The next chance of
additional widespread rain will occur later Thursday night as a
system approaches from the west.

Sub-VFR likely Friday in rain as low pressure moves of the coast
with generally light winds expected. VFR returns by Saturday.

&&

.MARINE...
Winds will increase out of the south today with SCA conditions
expected across all waters. A period of showers and possible
thunderstorms will move across the waters late this morning and this
afternoon, and Special Marine Warnings may become necessary. Gusty
winds will be the primary threat, although an isolated waterspout is
also possible.

A brief lull in winds is then expected this evening, but the SCA was
extended for much of the upper and middle Chesapeake Bay and lower
tidal Potomac overnight and into early Wednesday morning as west to
northwest winds increase again.

Sub-SCA winds then expected for the remainder of Wednesday and
Thursday.

SCA possible at the end of the week depending on track/strength of
low pressure moving up the eastern seaboard, and in its wake as
strong high pressure builds in from the Ohio Valley.

&&

.TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING...
Tidal anomalies continue to increase this morning, and this increase
will likely continue through about midday in south to southeast
flow. After midday, a cold front will turn winds westerly causing
anomalies to decrease. There may still be enough residual anomaly to
cause near minor flooding for the afternoon/evening tide cycle.

&&

.LWX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
DC...None.
MD...None.
VA...None.
WV...None.
Small Craft Advisory from 9 AM this morning to 6 PM EST this
evening for ANZ535-536-538.
Small Craft Advisory until 6 PM EST this evening for ANZ542.
Small Craft Advisory from 9 AM this morning to 8 AM EST
Wednesday for ANZ530.
