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

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

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

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

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

          KUDZU The Musical Celebrates Local Folklore And Weirdness      Cache   Translate Page      

"Kudzu Covers the South." That's the on-air slogan for WKDZ, a Columbus radio station at the center of the action of the Springer's original musical comedy opening November 8.

KUDZU, The Musical takes place in Columbus during a massive flood on the Chattahoochee River in the summer of 1954. The setting is a tiny radio station - WKDZ - Kudzu Radio - which has scheduled a broadcast of its popular Vine Time Variety Hour just as the river gushes into the flood plain.

When all the other radio stations are knocked off the air, WKDZ becomes the community's sole lifeline during the disaster. Since the station broadcasts from the third floor of Shipley's Mortuary and Life Insurance Agency, the broadcasters, musicians and live studio audience are safe from the flood. So the station's owners, Preacher T.J. Allred and his wife, Jackie, decide to go ahead with the big show even as the storm rages outside.

Kudzu, The Musical features Southern legends, tall tales, rural humor, and local news - woven together with the Lost Dog Report, Recipes and Home Remedies, a call-in show called Ask the Preacher and WKDZ's popular mystery series, Frank Cutter: Phenix City Private Eye.

Legendary Georgia songsmith, Allen Levi, has written original bluegrass, country, blues, gospel and comedy tunes for the production.

Kudzu's playwright and director, Paul Pierce, collaborated with Levi to produce a musical comedy that explores life in the Chattahoochee Valley in the 1950's - an era in which Phenix City was in its "Sin City" phase, when Digger O'Dell buried himself alive, when the Goat Man made frequent visits, when Eddie Owens Martin was working out his Pasaquoyan visions, when the textile mills, RC Cola and Tom's Peanuts were still humming, when mysterious blue fireballs danced on the surface of the river, when UFO's were commonly reported and when Jim Crow laws were being challenged.

"The idea for this started back in the 1990's when Allen and I first got to know each other," Pierce said. "I began meeting regularly with a group of local historians and folklorists like Kaffie Sledge and Cathy Fussell and collected local legends, tall tales and, well, weirdness. Then I spent months at the library going through newspaper archives and began distilling it all into one very weird evening in 1954.

"After I wrote the first draft of the script, I invited Allen to write original songs and jingles for this mythical Southern radio station. He delivered some brilliant tunes. We workshopped the show in 1995 and even toured it a little in the Southeast. Last year when the Springer decided to revive the show and give a full professional treatment, Allen and I decided that the script and the score could use some improvements. As Allen said, 'We're both better writers now than we were twenty years ago.' So this is a fresh take on the story and Allen has written four amazing new songs for the show. We are excited to share our work this November."

The cast, led by a Springer stage veteran Keith McCoy, plays Preacher Allred, the owner WKDZ. Allred's no-nonsense wife, Jacquie, is played by Chelsy Cutwright. Ned Bridges plays Joe D. Wood, the station's general manager and announcer and Debbie Anderson is Joe's wife, Charlynn, who is also a singer and musician in the studio band. Kerry Phillips plays Ken Kines, the bandleader and the orchestra is completed by Justin Balew, George Miles and Steve Thompson.

Kudzu, The Musical will be performed in the intimate Dorothy McClure Theatre (aka, "The Dot") at the Springer Opera House with a set that resembles the Chattahoochee riverfront. The show opens November 8,9,10,15,16,17 at 7:30 pm and November 11 and 18 at 2:30 pm. To reserve tickets, call the Springer box office at 706-327-3688 or visit springeroperahouse.org

Millions of Americans across the country took to the polls Tuesday to make their voices heard in the 2018 midterm elections.

Engagement this year seems to be higher than usual for midterm elections, which are generally less popular than presidential election years. Even before polls opened on Tuesday, more than 35 million Americans had already voted.x

From Georgia to New York City on Tuesday, lines stretched out the door and around the block as Americans carried out their civic duty.

Here's what Election Day 2018 looks like in America.

Many committed voters got up in the pre-dawn hours to cast their votes before work, like at this polling station at a recreation center in Columbus, Ohio.

The line at the Columbus, Ohio rec center appeared to continue even once voters got inside the gym.

          Veterans Day is a day of lies      Cache   Translate Page      
By David Swanson, World BEYOND War

Some are inclined to recognize that Trumpies are dwelling in an alternative universe in which neither climate collapse nor nuclear apocalypse is a concern but terrifying wild hoards of Muslim Hondurans are skipping and dancing into the Fatherland armed with gang symbols, deadly rocks, and socialistic tendencies.

Others are alert to the fact that the so-called “mainstream” — the viewpoint of pro-status-quo, anti-improvement institutions — is also fabricated in a wishful dream factory. As exhibit one, I offer: Veterans Day.

A National Museum claiming to tell veterans’ stories and longing to become “the clearinghouse of veteran voices” where “producers or authors or podcasters in the future” come “for authentic from-the-veteran voices,” has just opened in Columbus, Ohio. The $82 million recruitment ad benefits from government funding and raises donations with this language: “Your tax-deductible gift helps to honor, connect, inspire, and educate all on the story of those who bravely served our country.” Not one word about accuracy, thoroughness, diversity of viewpoint, or independence of thought.

“What you are going to see and here are the stories – Why did someone decide to serve? What was it like to take the oath, serve in combat? What was it like to come home?” reports one newspaper. For example? Well: “For example, there’s Deborah Sampson, a Massachusetts woman who disguised herself as a man in order to serve in the Revolutionary War (even pulling musket balls from her own thighs to avoid having to see a doctor, who might discover her true sex). Or Master Sergeant Roy Benavidez, who received the Medal of Honor for saving the lives of at least eight men during the Vietnam War in a six-hour battle, in which he sustained seven gunshot wounds and shrapnel throughout his body.”

Do visitors obtain information, education, challenged assumptions? Maybe, but what one can read about this museum says that one will be “inspired,” like this guy: “For my own part, I find inspiration and opportunities for reflection in the ‘ultimate sacrifice’ exhibit honoring the fallen; in the sound of ‘Taps’ playing on the second floor; in the meal kits and other everyday objects carried during service and the letters sent home; in the windows striped with colors of military service ribbons through history; in the stories of transition to civilian life; in the leafy Memorial Grove outside.”

Arguably honoring is not the same thing as studying. Without question, much participation in the military has involved bravery and much has involved cowardice. A very strong case can be made that militarism has not been a “service” in the sense of serving any useful purpose or benefitting people rather than endangering, killing, traumatizing, and impoverishing them. Indisputably, millions have not “decided” to “serve” at all but have been compelled to participate, and millions more have “chosen” to sign up principally for lack of any better source of income. Of all the veterans I’ve spoken with, those pro- and anti-war, not a one that I recall has ever mentioned the taking of an oath as a major part of the experience of war. The heartwarming stories of a woman sneaking into the military and a soldier saving lives in Vietnam can’t erase the larger story of soldiers having killed millions of people in Vietnam and tens of millions more all over the globe. Do people really “fall” in a “sacrifice,” or are they slaughtered in a stupid heartless machine? Do they “transition” to civilian life, or do they crash into an agonizing obstacle course of injury, guilt, PTSD, and culture shock? Are veterans more often disturbed by apocryphal tales of being spat on, or by naive gratitude for having committed moral atrocities?

A war museum that is also openly a war memorial constructed by a war-making society that has normalize permawar is not going to answer those questions. But they’ve long since been answered by poor people’s museums, also known as books, and there’s a new one of those just out that I’d put up against the toxic offerings of this new museum. The book is Guys Like Me by Michael A. Messner.
This book tells the stories of five veterans of five U.S. wars: WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq Parts I and II. We learn their stories from long before they entered the military through long after they left it. The stories are well-told, with subtlety and complexity, not museum-like propaganda. Patterns become evident without the book becoming repetitious. Each person is unique, but each confronts the same monster.

Recent veterans’ stories alone would not have sufficed in creating this book. The stories of past wars long-since enveloped in mythology are needed if the reader is to begin questioning war itself. Such stories are also more useful as typical stories of the wars they were part of. In more recent wars, the stories of U.S. veterans amount to a tiny percentage of the stories of those impacted by the wars. But older stories alone would not have sufficed either. Recognizing the eternal horror of war in its current guises completes the powerful case presented here. This is a book to give to young people.

The book’s first story is called “There Is No ‘Good War'” and tells the story of World War II veteran Ernie “Indio” Sanchez. Don’t take my assertion above that war involves cowardice as well as bravery from me. Read Sanchez’ story and take it from him. But cowardice was not the horror that lurked in Sanchez’ brain for decades while he kept busy and avoided it until he could avoid it no more. 

Here’s an excerpt: “All of this—the bone-chilling fear, the guilt, the moral shame—hid out in Ernie Sanchez’s body for the remaining seven decades of his life, ambushing him when he least expected it, jabbing him like that piece of shrapnel lodged near his spine. He could never make it go away, not entirely. Eventually he learned that talking about it—testifying to anyone who would listen to his stories of the stupidity of war, the burdens of having fought and killed, and the hope of peace—was the best salve for his wounds.”

This book is not only a model of telling the sorts of stories unwelcome in museums and NPR documentaries and Veterans Day parades, but also a model of writing about the perspective of an organization. Messner found his subjects through Veterans For Peace, on whose advisory board I serve, and accurately captures the wealth of moral and personal motivations behind the work of these veterans to rid the world of the means of creating yet more veterans.

Sanchez’s story begins with a tough, rough, gang and prison life. But that life contains nothing like the horror of war. He recalls:
“In two-and-a-half weeks, they had to pull out the 4th and 28th Infantry Divisions, because they were decimated. In two-and-a-half weeks, that Division lost 9,500 men, either killed or wounded. Two-and-a-half weeks I’m talking about. In this war we’re having [now] in Iraq, we haven’t killed 6,000 people yet. How many years we’ve been over there?”

The author does not step into the story to correct the idea that over a million dead people in Iraq aren’t actually “people,” but it is a way of thinking that many participants in war work to become aware of and overcome. Sanchez, in fact, spent many years telling himself that at least he had not personally killed people because he had shot at the front of trenches so that the “enemies” wouldn’t stick their heads and guns above them. When his life became less busy, he began to think about what he had actually done decades before: “When I didn’t have all these other things I had to think about, they came back to me and then I found out. God, the psychiatrist told me that I killed between fifty and 100 Germans. But I didn’t shoot to kill. I shoot to keep the guys down from shooting back. My job was to shoot right in front of the trench so dust and rocks and everything was right over-head so the Germans [are] not gonna stick out their heads to shoot back. That was my job, to keep them down, and keep ’em from fighting back. That was my mentality. I wasn’t killing anybody. And that’s what I was saying all these years. But the goddamn Iraq War reminded me what a dirty SOB I was.”

The stories get harder, not easier, from there. The story of the war on Korea includes a U.S. veteran apologizing in-person to a woman who was the only survivor in her village of a massacre.

Don’t blame the veterans, we’re often told. But this is a cartoonish morality in which blaming someone bars you from also blaming someone else (such as top government and military officials and weapons makers). The fact is that many veterans blame themselves and would no matter what the rest of us did; and many move toward recovery by facing their guilt and working to balance it with work for peace and justice.

Messner explains his perspective with an account of a conversation with his grandfather, a World War I veteran:
“On the morning of Veterans Day in 1980, Gramps sat with his breakfast—a cup of watery coffee, a piece of burnt toast slathered with marmalade, and a single slice of cool liverwurst. A twenty-eight-year-old graduate student, I’d recently moved in with my grandparents in their Oakland, California, home. I tried to cut through Gramps’s cranky mood by wishing him a happy Veterans Day. Huge Mistake. ‘Veterans Day!’ he barked at me with the gravelly voice of a lifelong smoker. ‘It’s not Veterans Day! It’s Armistice Day. Those gawd . . . damned . . . politicians . . . changed it to Veterans Day. And they keep getting us into more wars.’ My grandfather was hyperventilating now, his liverwurst forgotten. ‘Buncha crooks! They don’t fight the wars, ya know. Guys like me fight the wars. We called it the “War to End All Wars,” and we believed it.’ He closed the conversation with a harrumph: ‘Veterans Day!’

“Armistice Day symbolized to Gramps not just the end of his war, but the end of all war, the dawning of a lasting peace. This was not an idle dream. In fact, a mass movement for peace had pressed the U.S. government, in 1928, to sign the Kellogg-Briand Pact, an international ‘Treaty for the Renunciation of War,’ sponsored by the United States and France and subsequently signed by most nations of the world. When President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the law changing the name of the holiday to Veterans Day, to include veterans of World War II, it was a slap in the face for my grandfather. Hope evaporated, replaced with the ugly reality that politicians would continue to find reasons to send American boys— ‘guys like me’—to fight and die in wars.”

So they will until we stop them. Guys Like Me is a great tool for that cause — and for the restoration of Armistice Day. One error I hope will be corrected is this statement: “Obama slowed the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.” President Obama in reality tripled the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan and made it by every measure (death, destruction, troop count, dollars) his war more than a war of Bush or Trump or the two of them combined.

Veteran Gregory Ross read one of his poems at the 2016 Veterans For Peace Convention. It is quoted in Guys Like Me:

The Dead
do not require our silence to be honored
do not require our silence to be remembered.
do not accept our silence as remembrance, as honor.
do not expect our silence to end
the carnage of war
the child starved
the woman raped
the virulence of intolerance
the Earth desecrated
It is the living who require our silence
in a lifetime of fear and complicity

The Dead
do require our courage to defy the powerful and the greedy.
do require our lives to be loud, compassionate, courageous.
do require our anger at the continuance of war in their name.
do require our shock at the maiming of the Earth in their name.
do require our outrage to be honored, to be remembered.

The Dead

have no use for our silence

          Сравним русское "завоевание" Сибири с испано-португало-англо-голландским завоеванием Америки      Cache   Translate Page      

Обыкновенный геноцид

Игорь Шумейко

Если сравнивать русское "завоевание" Сибири и Дальнего Востока с испано-португало-англо-голландским завоеванием Америки, соблюдая принцип равенства начальных условий, то перед нами предстанет такая картина. В одну эпоху, в один и тот же XVI век, начались два исторических движения. Там и там первопроходцы встретили сообщества аборигенов, сильно уступавших им в развитии, а порой даже одинаково выглядящих. Справьтесь у антропологов: ближайшие родственники американских индейцев — народы Сибири.

Христофор Колумб (имя и фамилия которого, если вникнуть, переводятся как "Несущий Христа Голубь") так описывал первую встречу цивилизаций: "Эти люди ни в чём не испытывали нужды. Они заботились о своих растениях, были искусными рыбаками, каноистами и пловцами. Они строили привлекательные жилища и держали их в чистоте. Эстетически они выражали себя в дереве. У них было свободное время, чтобы заниматься игрой в мяч, танцами и музыкой. Они жили в мире и дружбе. Эти люди ходят, в чём их мать родила, но добродушны… Из них получатся хорошие и искусные слуги".

У Христофора — пока только три каравеллы и 90 не очень здоровых человек экипажа. Но в бортовом журнале 14 октября 1492 г. — запись (пророческая!): "Пятидесяти солдат достаточно для того, чтобы покорить их всех и заставить делать всё, что мы хотим. Местные жители разрешают нам ходить, где мы хотим и отдают нам всё, что мы у них просим".

В следующем, 1493 г., Колумб приплывает в Америку на двадцати кораблях, с полутора тысячами человек на борту.

"Именно с этой экспедицией в Новый Свет была завезена большая партия мастифов и грейхаундов, обученных для нападения на людей. Применялись массовые повешения, карательные походы" (Ян Кэрью. "Изнасилование рая. Колумб и британский расизм в Америках" — Jan Carew. Rape of Paradise: Columbus and the Birth of Racism in the Americas. Brooklyn, N.Y. A&B Books, 1994).

"На южном побережье Кубы люди Колумба, вооружённые аркебузами и боевыми собаками, объезжали верхом индейские деревни с целью обмена золота. При оказании сопротивления испанцы забирали золото силой, а людей обращали в рабство... Колумб издал закон, который обязывал всех индейцев старше 14 лет раз в три месяца платить испанцам золотом или 25 фунтами хлопка (в районах, где золота не было). Уплатившим такой "налог" выдавался медный жетон с датой последней выплаты. Жетон продлевал право жить на три месяца. Если дата на нём была просрочена, то индейцам отрубали кисти обеих рук, вешали их на шею и отправляли умирать в свою деревню… Нацизм был не менее отвратителен, чем "новый порядок", установленный Колумбом на Испаньоле. 1493-й и 1943-й — части одного и того же целого", — пишет Уард Черчилль (Ward Churchill. A Little Matter of Genocide. Holocaust and the Denial in the Americas 1492 to the Present, 1997).

Поскольку индейцам нужно было бросить обрабатывать свои поля, охоту и заниматься добычей золота, начался голод. "В 1598 г., в ответ на убийство 11 испанских солдат, дон Хуан де Онате совершил карательную экспедицию, уничтожил 800 индейцев и приказал ампутировать левую ногу каждому мужчине племени старше 25 лет", — пишет Ди Браун "Похороните моё сердце у Вундед-Ни" (Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West, 1970).

"Когда я вернулся из Картахены, встретил португальца по имени Рохе Мартин. На крыльце его дома висели части разрубленных индейцев для кормёжки его собак" (Дэвид Станнард, "Американский холокост").

Это — вклад страстных испанцев. Правда, потом из их же среды вышел и Лас Касас, благородный защитник индейцев, настоящий донкихот — тоже идальго, а затем и монах-доминиканец. Но он был исключением из правила: первые 40 послеколумбовых лет те "деяния" не считали даже "геноцидом", так как испанцы просто не признавали новооткрытых ими существ собственно людьми, "потомками Адама". Наличие у индейцев человеческой души было признано папой Римским Павлом III только в 1537 г. и, как следствие, было разрешено их крестить. Но и после этого, например, на известном Вальядолидском диспуте 1551 г., Хуан де Сепульведа настаивал на отсутствии у индейцев разума, а предъявляемые оппонентами как доказательства города ацтеков и майя называл построенными по инстинкту — как у пчёл, муравьёв и термитов…

Подход к новым людям задан. Вклад Северной Европы и США — меньше страстности, больше методичности. В 1623 г. англичане отравили вином 200 человек племени пауатан и добили ещё 50 холодным оружием. Вечером 26 мая 1637 г. английские колонисты под командованием Джона Андерхилла атаковали деревню племени Пеквот (штат Коннектикут) и сожгли заживо 700 человек.

30 апреля 1774 г. — бойня у Жёлтого Ручья близ Уэлсвилля (Огайо). Группа приграничных поселенцев во главе с Дэниэлом Грейтхаузом убила 21 человека племени минго… Дочь вождя Тунай была на последнем сроке беременности. Её пытали, выпотрошили внутренности, пока она была жива. Скальп сняли с неё, с плода, который из неё вырезали, и с прочих минго…

Во время Войны за независимость 96 крещёных индейцев были убиты американским народным ополчением из штата Пенсильвания в миссии моравских братьев Гнаденхюттен штата Огайо... Помнится, Лев Толстой умилялся "муравейными моравскими братьями". Действительно, они были более кротки, чем те же методисты, их коллеги по освоению континента.

В 1492 г. (7000-й по старому летоисчислению) в Европе ждали Конца Света, но взамен этого был открыт Новый Свет. "Великий XVI век" (К. Маркс) стал экзаменом для всех цивилизаций и народов.

Казаки "приводили к шерте" сибирские народы, взимали ясак, дань хану (теперь — московскому) и "отдаривались" встречными поставками: водка, соль и особенно железные иголки сыграли свои (разные) роли в жизни "сибирских татар", — об этом тоже будет рассказ.

          Paper jam in Columbus voting machine causes stir on social media      Cache   Translate Page      

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A video circulating on social media showing what appeared to be an issue with a voting machine, has been addressed by the Franklin County Board of Elections.

The video, posted by a woman on Facebook, shows her selecting to vote for Mike DeWine and Jon Husted in the race for Governor of Ohio.

When she moved the camera to the paper scrolling to show her selection, it showed a vote for Richard Cordray.

This incident occurred at Heritage Free Will Baptist Church in south Columbus.

The Franklin County Board of Elections said there was a paper jam in the machine.

The woman checked in to vote at 10:03 a.m.

The paper in the video showed a time of 9:39 a.m.; when a vote for Cordray was logged.

The machine was taken offline and the voter moved to another machine to cast her vote without issue.

The Franklin County Board of Elections said in a statement, “The Board wants to reassure voters of Franklin County that the votes cast on our voting machines are recorded as they were intended by the voter. All voting machines are tested by a bipartisan team for accuracy each election for every contest on the ballot. Bipartisan teams are also dispatched to voting locations to address any voting machine issues such as paper jams.”

          Lawsuit alleges Ohio girl was bullied at school before her death      Cache   Translate Page      

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The parents of an 11-year-old Ohio girl who killed herself allege in a federal lawsuit against her school district that she was bullied for years because of her appearance and gender and that school officials didn't do enough to address it.

Bethany Thompson's parents also allege a Triad Local School District principal who learned the girl had talked about killing herself failed to notify her parents about those comments before her death in 2016. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages and changes in how the district trains employees and students about issues such as bullying and discrimination.

Superintendent Vickie Hoffman tells The Columbus Dispatch the rural district roughly 35 miles northwest of Columbus meets state requirements about bullying and works hard to train employees and students about such topics.


          City of Columbus to pay family $410,000 settlement in fatal firetruck crash      Cache   Translate Page      

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Columbus City Council has approved paying the family of an 86-year-old woman killed in a firetruck accident $410,000 to settle a wrongful death lawsuit.

The Columbus Dispatch reports Columbus City Council voted on the settlement Monday in a lawsuit filed by William Glenn in the death of his mother, Elvyra Glenn, who died after the November 2013 accident.

The lawsuit alleged that a Columbus firefighter failed to activate the firetruck's lights or siren before it collided with Elvyra Glenn's vehicle.

The now-retired firefighter said in an affidavit that he pulled an air horn in short bursts before driving through a red light at an intersection. He also wrote that with "benefit of hindsight" he did not enter the intersection safely because an accident occurred.

          September was second wettest in 136 years for Ohio; October showed wild swings in rainfall      Cache   Translate Page      
Few other Ohioans can appreciate the vagaries of wet or dry conditions more than can the state’s hunters and anglers.

And though nearly all of Ohio was stressed by too much – in many case, way too much – precipitation in September, the state still saw erratic rainfall that resulted in localized flooding in some areas.

September’s wetness is easier to quantify in large measure because the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Geological Survey conducts a monthly wrap-up with what it calls a “water inventory report.”

The agency’s September report says that this past September was the second-wettest for the month for Ohio in 136 years, averaging 6.52 inches – or 3.35 inches above normal.

In fact, eight of the state’s 10 climatic regions – the Geological Survey segments Ohio into 10 climatic zones, or regions – ranked in the top five wettest Septembers on record, the agency says.

Again, however, not all areas experienced an equal amount of bonus rainfall. Scioto County’s Lucasville saw 10 inches of rainfall in September while Williams County’s Edon saw only 0.85 inches of rainfall.

How all of this translated into stream flow - which plagued anglers in more than a few locations during September - also is documented in the Geological Survey Division’s September water inventory report. In Northeast Ohio, the Grand River at Painesville saw its discharge rate (as measured in cubic feet per second) surge to 745 percent of normal.

Meanwhile, the Little Beaver Creek as measured at East Liverpool was 995 cubic feet per second.

Neither of these two streams held a candle to the Stillwater River at Pleasant Hill, however. Here, the discharge rate was an astounding 1,956 percent of normal.

And though Lake Erie’s water level made its seasonal September decline the lake’s that month was still 0.23 feet above where it was in September 2017.

Yet October appears to have demonstrated an extraordinarily fickle nature when it came to precipitation. Though the Geological Survey Division’s 10-climatic-region-based monthly water inventory report for October won’t be available for several weeks, data from the National Weather Service does shows some huge swings in precipitation amounts for Ohio.

Such swings impacted anglers in Northeast Ohio who saw their steelhead streams and late season Lake Erie walleye fishing ventures both hampered. Meanwhile, some deer hunters in southwest Ohio reported very dry woodland conditions.

National Weather Service statistics support both views. In Cleveland for October, 3.78 inches of rain fell, which was 0.71 inches above average for the month, though several communities further to the east saw more rain, such as Mentor and Thompson Township.

Further south and west, Mansfield saw 4.53 inches of rain in October, or 1.59 inches above the monthly average for the city. At the same time, Youngstown saw 3.77 inches of rainfall, or 1.59 inches above normal.

From there, several areas of the state experienced deficits, subtracting from their September abundance.

For example, Toledo during October saw 1.94 inches of rain. That measurement was 0.66 inches below average. Experiencing even greater monthly deficits in October were both Dayton and Cincinnati. Dayton saw 1.53 inches of rain during October, or 1.40 inches below the monthly average while Cincinnati encountering 1.67 inches of rainfall, or 1.63 inches below its average.

Only Columbus appears to have closed in on its October average. Based on National Weather Service data, the city saw 2.60 inches of rain, which was a statistically insignificant 0.01 inches below average.

As for the calendar year, if your weekend fishing trips seemed washed out more often than not, that’s because through September 2018’s rainfall stood at 39.90 inches, which is 9.49 inches above average. These excessive rainfalls ranged anywhere from 15.73 inches above average in the state’s southeast region to 3 inches above normal for the northwest region.

          Amazon Did Exactly What Every Company Does. What Was the Point?      Cache   Translate Page      

The New York Times reported late Monday that Amazon has closed in on two locations to end its HQ2 search: the Crystal City neighborhood in Arlington, Virginia, and Long Island City, New York. The first is across a river from Washington, D.C.; the second across a river from midtown Manhattan.

They are, in short, exactly where you would expect a West Coast company to open up satellite offices for a new white-collar workforce. Not only are they adjacent to the country’s capitals of government and finance. Not only do they represent the largest (labor force 10.2 million) and sixth largest (labor force 3.4 million) metros in the United States. Not only are D.C. and New York the sites of two of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ homes—always a good sign of corporate intentions. They are also already home to the largest concentrations of Amazon workers outside of Seattle.

But the decision is somehow even more mundane in light of the circus that preceded it. As BuzzFeed’s Tom Gara observed, it’s a bit like that time the New York Times convinced 13,000 people to apply for its “world traveler” listing, then hired a respected New York magazine writer. Or when LeBron James captivated the nation for an hourlong network special to announce he would play basketball in Miami, where he won back-to-back championships. Amazon is taking its talents to D.C. and New York; we needed a yearlong reality show for that?

The HQ2 competition drew so much oxygen for two reasons. The first was the scale of the offer: Fifty-thousand jobs and 8 million square feet in one place was the rare private investment that could actually change the trajectory of a city or region. The second was the apparent openness: Anyone could compete, and hundreds of places did.

If the Times report is correct, then neither of those expectations will have turned out to be accurate. On the latter count, it was fun to fantasize that Bezos might choose to revitalize some depopulated Rust Belt city or simply move the whole shop to Jackson, Wyoming, and elect a pair of Amazon senators. Amazon didn’t need to open its new branch in a city with 50,000 wannabe employees. But it did need to go to a place that those future employees’ spouses, in all likelihood as ambitious as their partners, would be excited to move. That limited the pool—apparently so much so that the former point fell through as well, and Amazon opted to split the big bonanza in half.

So, if Amazon’s plan all along was to open larger branch offices in two major East Coast cities, why did it send hundreds of local officials scrambling to submit plans?

First, the search committee may have wanted to set the company up in a lower-cost location than Seattle, which has some of the country’s highest housing costs and concurrently demands high wages. It’s possible the firm faced resistance either from executives who didn’t want to move, or from HR who realized it might challenge the company’s hiring goals. In 2002, Goldman Sachs faced a “near-revolt” when it tried to move its equity traders from Manhattan to New Jersey. (“It’s not exactly Paris with the left bank and the right bank,” a company executive said of the Hudson River at the time.) Amazon’s Seattle workforce might feel similarly about moving to Columbus, Ohio.

In either case, it’s likely that the company knew it wasn’t establishing some back office, but moving to one or more high-cost cities, and wanted to extract the maximum possible subsidy from its chosen location. No doubt New York and Virginia—with competitors hot on their heels—have floated much more generous tax-abatement offers than they would to the local hardware store. (New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo offered to rename himself Amazon Cuomo.) In New York, the company has apparently chosen a neighborhood blanketed in federal “opportunity zones,” increasing the likelihood of a primo-low-tax expansion in a city that ought to be capturing every dollar from companies eager to have access to its labor market, infrastructure, and amenities, not paying them to set up shop.

It’s also possible Amazon—which has turned mighty Seattle into a company town—came to the conclusion that it wasn’t necessarily better to be in such a dominant local position. Told that the company would be splitting its expansion between two cities, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan said, “I’d call those branch offices. That would be good news.” She meant that’s good news for Seattle, which retains its pre-eminence as the company’s real headquarters.

It might also be good news for Amazon, which won’t exert such a commanding influence in the local labor market that it single-handedly drives up wages or jacks up housing prices. It won’t find itself with the corporate responsibility that might have come with a more ambitious site choice.

It might also be good for the cities: The impact of 50,000 new employees was always going to be a shock, and few cities are better built to handle it than New York and Washington. (It would be hard to think of two locations with less potential impact on traffic, for example.) Yet to the extent possible with such a big expansion, the company won’t be the singularly influential corporate presence it is in Seattle, where Amazon recently helped quash a head tax to fund homeless services.

In any case, the search was its own reward. Mayors and governors bowed down, and a burst of media speculation kept Amazon on our minds. But that wasn’t all. As Stacy Mitchell of the Institute of Self-Reliance observed on Tuesday, the 238 applicants for HQ2 turned over a lot of information. Those applications make up a library of primo sites. Most important might be evidence of each place’s willingness to change laws and regulations to court Amazon. The company has already gotten $1.6 billion in giveaways, according to Good Jobs First, which tracks and advocates against corporate subsidies. So it’s no strange to the practice. But a little more insight never hurt.

           Connected Vehicle Technologies Expand to Austin, Texas       Cache   Translate Page      

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

EXCERPTS ABOUT THE FISK JUBILEE SINGERS
These excerpts are presented in no particular order and are numbered for referencing purposes only.

Excerpt #1:
From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fisk_Jubilee_Singers
"The Fisk Jubilee Singers are an African-American a cappella ensemble, consisting of students at Fisk University. The first group was organized in 1871 to tour and raise funds for college. Their early repertoire consisted mostly of traditional spirituals, but included some Stephen Foster songs. The original group toured along the Underground Railroad path in the United States, as well as performing in England and Europe. Later 19th-century groups also toured in Europe.

In 2002 the Library of Congress honored their 1909 recording of "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" by adding it in the United States National Recording Registry.[1] In 2008 they were awarded a National Medal of Arts.

History
The Singers were organized as a fundraising effort for Fisk University. The historically black college in Nashville, Tennessee, was founded by the American Missionary Association and local supporters after the end of the American Civil War to educate freedmen and other young African Americans. The five-year-old university was facing serious financial difficulty. To avert bankruptcy and closure, Fisk's treasurer and music director, George L. White, a white Northern missionary dedicated to music and proving African Americans were the intellectual equals of whites,[2] gathered a nine-member student chorus, consisting of four black men … and five black women …. to go on tour to earn money for the university. On October 6, 1871, the group of students, consisting of two quartets and a pianist, started their U.S. tour under White's direction.[3] They first performed in Cincinnati, Ohio. Over the next 18 months, the group toured through Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.[4]

[...]

The group traveled on to Columbus, where lack of funding, poor hotel conditions, and overall mistreatment from the press and audiences left them feeling tired and discouraged.

The group and their pastor, Henry Bennett, prayed about whether to continue with the tour. White went off to pray as well; he believed that they needed a name to capture audience attention. The next morning, he met with the singers and said "Children, it shall be Jubilee Singers in memory of the Jewish year of Jubilee."[2] This was a reference to Jubilee described in the book of Leviticus in the Bible. Each fiftieth Pentecost was followed by a "year of jubilee" in which all slaves would be set free.[3] Since most of the students at Fisk University and their families were newly freed slaves,[5] the name "Jubilee Singers" seemed fitting.

The Jubilee Singers' performances were a departure from the familiar "black minstrel" genre of white musicians' performing in blackface. One early review of the group's performance was headlined "Negro Minstrelsy in Church--Novel Religious Exercise," while further reviews highlighted the fact that this group of Negro minstrels were, oddly enough, "genuine negroes."[6] "Those who have only heard the burnt cork caricatures of negro minstrelsy have not the slightest conception of what it really is," Doug Seroff quotes one review of a concert by the group as saying.[7] This was not a uniquely American response to the group's performance, but was typical in audience receptions in Europe as well: "From the first the Jubilee music was more or less of a puzzle to the critics; and even among those who sympathised with their mission there was no little difference of opinion as to the artistic merit of their entertainments. Some could not understand the reason for enjoying so thoroughly as almost everyone did these simple unpretending songs."[8]

As the tour continued, audiences came to appreciate the singers' voices, and the group began to be praised. The Jubilee Singers are credited with the early popularization of the Negro spiritual tradition among white and northern audiences in the late 19th century; many were previously unaware of its existence.[9] At first the slave songs were never sung in public, according to Ella Sheppard; "they were sacred to our parents, who used them in their religious worship and shouted over them...It was only after many months that gradually our hearts were opened to the influence of these friends and we began to appreciate the wonderful beauty and power of our songs.[10] After the rough start, the first United States tours eventually earned $40,000 for Fisk University.[4][11]

[...]

In a tour of Great Britain and Europe in 1873, the group, by then with 11 members, performed "Steal Away to Jesus" and "Go Down, Moses" for Queen Victoria in April. They returned the following year, they sailed to Europe again, touring from May 1875 to July 1878. This tour raised an estimated $150,000 for the university, funds used to construct Fisk's first permanent building.[5] Named Jubilee Hall, the building was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1975 and still stands.[3][9][12].

The original Jubilee Singers disbanded in 1878 because of their grueling touring schedule.

The Jubilee Singers are credited with the early popularization of the Negro spiritual tradition among white and northern audiences in the late 19th century; many were previously unaware of its existence.[9] At first the slave songs were never sung in public, according to Ella Sheppard; "they were sacred to our parents, who used them in their religious worship and shouted over them...It was only after many months that gradually our hearts were opened to the influence of these friends and we began to appreciate the wonderful beauty and power of our songs.[10] After the rough start, the first United States tours eventually earned $40,000 for Fisk University.[4][11]"...

From http://www.buckschoral.org/news-and-archives/resources/spiritual-history/chapter-5/ "A History of the African-American Spiritual: How the African-American Spiritual has maintained its integrity in the face of major social and musical challenges"
[Based on an article by Thomas Lloyd published in the August 2004 issue of the Choral Journal of the American Choral Directors Association; all rights reserved.]
..."Seen in this context*, it was quite startling for white audiences to see on stage a group of nine former slaves, dressed not in the tatters of Jim Crow or the slick-city outfits of Zip Coon, but in simple, dignified suits and gowns, performing the spiritual songs of the slaves with a restraint, control, and expressive intensity that would take the audience’s breath away.”...

"This context" probably refers to "black-face minstrelsy" as that is the focus of chapter 4 in this buckschoral.org series. Here's a link to that chapter: http://www.buckschoral.org/news-and-archives/resources/spiritual-history/chapter-4/ "Countering the images of black-face minstrelsy".

..."the Fisk Jubilee Singers brought a style of singing and harmony to the white world that had been previously unknown and, in the process, won international fame for their university. While the Fisk Jubilee Singers were by not means the only African American musical ensemble singing spirituals,3 they are the most famous and remembered example to this day."...

AMAZON Y ALIBABA ACABARÁN CON TODO EL PEQUEÑO COMERCIO EN EL MUNDO
El objetivo de este blog cuando nació fue buscar la verdad, observar desde otro ángulo algunos discursos oficiales publicados. Analizar las mejores prácticas del retail mundial. Investigar el pasado y intuir el futuro. Hoy va camino de los dos millones y medio de visitas anuales procedentes de lectores de más de 20 países.
Entre otros objetivos estaba desmontar mitos oficiales, verdades absolutas falsas, y ahí se encuentran muchos mitos sobre Amazon y Alibaba. El objetivo es derribar los mitos positivos que buscan ensalzarles (¿Cuántas veces hemos leído que Amazon va a abrir nuevos mercados, y luego a quedado en nada, o que iba a comprar tal o cual empresa, y al final lo único que sucedió es que las acciones de sus competidores cayeron en picado) , pero también es nuestro objetivo derrumbar los mitos negativos. El objetivo es la verdad.
Y uno de esos mitos negativos es que Amazon y Alibaba están destruyendo el pequeño comercio.  Nos dicen que Amazon y Alibaba acabarán con todo el pequeño comercio en el mundo. Nos lo cuentan día tras día. Conviene un actor que remueva el escenario, que venga para acabar con todo. Vendemos titulares y consultoría.
Amazon, Alibaba, el resto de los nuevos actores, están haciendo más por las pequeñas y medianas empresas del retail , que lo que jamás han hecho los actores históricos del retail. Esa es la verdad. Esto que afirmo está en las antípodas de la verdad oficial pero es la absoluta verdad.
Amazon, Alibaba, no son ángeles, ni ONG´s que aman y viven para los pequeños negocios (tanto fabricantes como distribuidores), y este apoyo es parte de su estrategia, pero han hecho infinitamente más a favor de los pequeños negocios, que los retailers tradicionales (Walmart, Inditex, H&M, Costco, El Corte Inglés, McDonald´s, Mercadona, Tesco, Carrefour…etc). Y por otro su expansión ha tenido un impacto negativo para los pequeños negocios muchísimo menor de lo que supuso la expansión de los centros comerciales y los grandes almacenes
Estos son los datos, usted saque sus conclusiones:
1) AMAZON
Más de 20,000 pequeñas y medianas empresas en todo el mundo superaron los $ 1M en ventas en Amazon en 2017. La mitad de los artículos comprados en Amazon provienen de pequeñas y medianas empresas
En 2017, Amazon prestó más de $ 1B a pequeñas y medianas empresas con sede en EE. UU. A través del programa de préstamos de Amazon
 2)      ALIBABA
Tiene casi 11 millones de pymes en su plataforma y ha creado 30 millones de empleos.
  3)      EL CASO WALMART 
Este retail escrito desde ciertas revistas y proclamado desde ciertas consultoras, desconoce el Informe Wal-Mart, en 1997, de la Iowa State University donde  demostraba que en 12 años la llegada de Walmart a esa región había supuesto el cierre del 50% de las tiendas locales.  
No han leído  “The effects of Wal-Mart on local labor markets”, de David Neumark.  El cual demostró que la apertura de una tienda Wal-Mart reduce el empleo minorista a nivel de condado. Cada trabajador de Wal-Mart reemplaza a aproximadamente 1.4 trabajadores de pequeñas tiendas locales.
Y por supuesto desconocen la historia: 
1989.  Artículo de NYTimes: “WHEN WALMART COMES TO TOWN”
” Wal-Mart nos amenazó”, dice Brimmer (Alcalde de Independence, Iowa,),  “Nos dijeron que si no construían aquí, construirían en una ciudad cercana, y eso habría sido igualmente difícil en Main Street. Nuestra gente iba a comprar allí ya fuera en Independence o a 25 millas de distancia. Simplemente no puedes vencer a Wal-Mart, así que nos unimos a ellos ”.
  
1993. artículo de NYtimes. WALMART ON TRIAL ON PREDATORY PRICES CHANGES 
” Wal-Mart en juicio por cargos de ‘precios predatorios’. Se le acusa de vender por debajo de precio. Walmart ya tiene 2,300 tiendas de descuento y clubes de almacenes. Ofrece “precios bajos todos los días”. Los comerciantes más pequeños se quejan de que no pueden igualar los precios de Wal-Mart y se ven obligados a cerrar cuando uno de los megastores se muda a su área. Miles tiendas cerraron tras la expansión en los 90 de Walmart. Su expansión tuvo un impacto infinitamente mayor del que está teniendo Amazon y el crecimiento de internet en los pequeños y medianos negocios”

 1993. Artículo INC:   Cuando Walmart llega a la ciudad…
Durante cien años, Bath, Maine, lo había hecho bien, gracias. Los dueños de negocios en el centro de la ciudad trabajaron duro, a veces florecieron, y siempre sostuvieron una comunidad económica pequeña pero vital que era el alma de la ciudad. Luego llegó Wal-Mart…”

4) LA EXPANSIÓN DE LOS CENTROS COMERCIALES Y SU IMPACTO EN LOS PEQUEÑOS COMERCIOS 
Desconocen que:
1986. Artículo del NYtimes sobre el impacto de la expansión de los centros comerciales en los pequeños comercios:
Los centros comerciales cerraron miles de pequeñas tiendas en las ciudades donde se abrieron. El país más sobresaturado del mundo en m2 de centros comerciales. Y el país al que usted no debe mirar para entender qué sucederá en su país con los centros comerciales.
 “Los centros comerciales están en todas partes. Hay 25,000 en los Estados Unidos, más que la cantidad de hospitales o distritos escolares. Y este año se abrió el terreno para 2,000 nuevos, …. Los centros comerciales se han convertido en nuestras plazas urbanas, no solo el lugar preferido para comprar, sino también lugares de reunión populares para adolescentes y puntos de encuentro para los solteros que se desplazan. También se han convertido en inversiones codiciadas para muchas de las principales compañías de seguros y fondos de pensiones de la nación, sus principales propietarios. Casi todos los centros comerciales obtienen ganancias sólidas; casi ninguno falla. El hecho de que su riesgo se extienda por docenas de inquilinos los hace resistentes frente a las interrupciones de la economía. Y hoy en día, los centros comerciales obtienen más del 52 por ciento de las ventas minoristas de la nación (excluyendo productos automotrices, que rara vez se venden en centros comerciales), o alrededor de $ 300 mil millones.”

5)  LA EXPANSIÓN DE LOS GRANDES ALMACENES  Y SU IMPACTO EN LOS PEQUEÑOS COMERCIOS 
 Los grandes almacenes surgieron en el siglo XVIII como una tienda de tiendas donde pudieras comprar de casi todo. Fue el principio del fin de los barrios gremiales. 
Y es conveniente entender el impacto real que tuvo en los pequeños retailers la apertura de los domingos a demanda de los grandes almacenes:
1986.  Artículo del NYtimes: Los grandes almacenes obligaron a los pequeños retailers a abrir en domingo. Muchos de ellos no pudieron seguirles…
“Hace diez años, los grandes almacenes de Nueva York comenzaron una política muy debatida de abrir los domingos. En pocas semanas, se les unieron miles de minoristas más pequeños en la ciudad y la región, muchos de ellos reacios, pero barridos por presiones competitivas. Desde entonces, la vida de fin de semana en Nueva York y sus suburbios nunca ha sido lo mismo.
Con la apertura de las tiendas el domingo, las compras se han vuelto funcionales y recreativas”
Varios minoristas de todo tipo han cerrado su negocio en la ciudad, dicen los minoristas, porque no podían permitirse abrir los domingos mientras que su competencia más grande podía hacerlo.
 Louis W. Powsner, propietario de una tienda de ropa masculina en Coney Island, Brooklyn, y presidente del Consejo de Comercio del Condado de Kings, formado por 4.000 miembros, dijo que en los últimos 10 el 20 por ciento de nuestros miembros han cerrado su negocio directamente como resultado de la apertura de otras tiendas el domingo ”.

6) LA EXPANSIÓN DE LOS RESTAURANTES DE COMIDA RÁPIDA Y SU IMPACTO EN LOS PEQUEÑOS COMERCIOS 
1985. Artículo del NYtimes sobre la expansión de los restaurantes de comida rápida: Los restaurantes de comida rápida han borrado de la faz de la tierra a cientos de miles de restaurantes convencionales.
“La ruta 161, con sus carreteras vecinas, es Fast-Food Row en lo que se considera la capital mundial de la comida rápida. Unos 450 restaurantes de comida rápida (67 McDonald’s, 59 Wendy’s, 35 Kentucky Fried Chickens, 27 Pizza Huts) rodean el área metropolitana de Columbus.
McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, que gobiernan las carreteras de Estados Unidos, expulsando a los combatientes más pequeños del juego. Ya, las 10 cadenas más grandes sirven la mitad de todas las comidas súper rápidas y sus sombras se están alargando sobre la industria.
Las personas que quieren comer quieren ver comer a otras personas. Si no hay nadie allí, la comida debe ser mala. Y cuando estás comiendo quieres mirar hacia fuera. Aumenta el nivel de confort. También tiene la oportunidad de colgar plantas y crear una atmósfera de alto nivel. Y, aquí hay una verdadera mina de oro. Puede poner lámparas dentro y no afectar los códigos de variación de la comunidad como lo hace con las luces exteriores. Esas lámparas de interior se ven muy bien por la noche ”.
Jay Fitzsimmons, el director financiero de Flakey Jake’s, explicó: “La mayoría de nosotros hemos puesto cosas como barras de ensaladas no porque las barras de ensaladas sean un buen negocio, sus márgenes son generalmente más bajos que todo lo demás, sino porque algunas personas de una familia lo son. Voy a querer una ensalada. Lo que buscan todos los restaurantes es no tener veto. Digamos que una familia está conduciendo y buscando un lugar para comer. El marido dice: ‘Oye, quiero una hamburguesa’. Pero la esposa dice: ‘Oye, una ensalada para mí’. Así que si no tenemos una barra de ensaladas, obtenemos un veto. Es muy importante no obtener un veto ”.
McDonald’s planea abrir unos 500 lugares este año, casi igual que el año pasado. Las cadenas se esparcen como dientes de león porque los franquiciados hacen gran parte del trabajo. Cuesta cerca de $ 1 millón para abrir un McDonald’s: la compañía generalmente compra el terreno y construye el restaurante, pero el franquiciado debe invertir alrededor de $ 350,000 en equipos y pagarle a McDonald’s el 11 1/2 por ciento de las ventas mensuales. Las nuevas cadenas, con menos capital, prefieren que los franquiciados construyan sus propios restaurantes y paguen a los padres un recorte de ventas más bajo.
Parece estar funcionando. En 1984, Wendy’s gastó $ 73.5 millones en publicidad televisiva. McDonald’s y Burger King juntos gastaron cinco veces eso.
Wendy’s ahora cuenta con unos 3,000 restaurantes, en comparación con los 4,100 de Burger King y los 8,304 de McDonald’s.”

  7) ESPAÑA 
MERCERÍAS Y SASTRERÍAS.
A finales de los 90 había miles de ellas por nuestras calles. Luego llegó la moda rápida y sus 57 colecciones al año. Hoy apenas quedan mercerías y sastrerías en nuestras calles.
SUPERMERCADOS E HIPERMERCADOS  2008.
2008. Cinco grandes cadenas controlan la distribución de más de la mitad de los alimentos que se distribuyen en España. Tienen el 55% de cuota de mercado:  Carrefour controla un 23,7% de la cuota, Mercadona un 16%, Eroski un 7,4%, Alcampo un 6,1% y el Corte Inglés un 2,3%.
Una década después son 6 cadenas las que controlan el 55%: Mercadona (25.1%). Carrefour (8.4%), DIA (7.7%), Eroski (5.4%), Lild (5%), Achuan (3.5%)
Una lechuga tiene un diferencia de casi el 1000 % entre origen y destino,  (pasa de los 0,09 euros/kilo iniciales a los 0,96 euros/kilo en la venta al público. Marzo 2018).
Los cereales, el trigo y la cebada, se paga el Kilo, a los agricultores como hace dos décadas.
El kilo de cerdo se pagaba en marzo a 1,14 euros en origen y 5,38 en destino. La ternera, tenía el siguiente diferencial entre el precio entre origen (4,11 euros/kilo) y destino (16,11 euros/kilo).
De la misma forma que constantemente recibimos noticias “bombas” acerca de Amazon o Alibaba en cuanto a su entrada en posibles mercados, y que luego quedan en nada. De la misma forma que recibimos millones de noticias sobre que el comercio electrónico terminará con las tiendas físicas, lo cual es absolutamente falso. Recibimos constantemente noticias y argumentos manipulados acerca de que Amazon o Alibaba terminarán con los pequeños negocios. Y es también falso. No es cuestión de que nos parezca bien o mal que esto sea falso, es que es la verdad, y la verdad demostrada con números y con historia suele derrotar a los mitos.
Como digo, este artículo no es un artículo a favor de unos o en contra de otros, es un artículo que busca la verdad.

          Heat Check: Harrison Watch Continues Following Up-and-Down Month on Both the Field and Recruiting Trail      Cache   Translate Page      
Recruiting is all about momentum. Sometimes you're gaining it, sometimes you're losing it. What prospects are trending up with Ohio State? Let's take a look.

The program has certainly seen its share of strange occurrences lately. Last week Urban Meyer was fielding questions about whether or not he'd be back in Columbus next season. He then spoke with a small group of reporters to open up on the health concerns he's been dealing with. Meyer reiterated that he remains fully committed to the program and plans on being its head coach for as long as he can. 

The week culminated with Ohio State struggling at home against a two-win Nebraska program. Meanwhile, it's been an up-and-down few weeks on the recruiting trail as well. Kentucky four-star athlete Wandale Robinson had been one of the staff's top targets, but last week the speedster pledged his services to the in-state Wildcats while delivering a blow to Brian Hartline's efforts.

This past weekend the Buckeyes got some good news when three-star tailback Marcus Crowley announced that he was flipping from Miami to Ohio State. He's a player Tony Alford zeroed in on immediately following the Sampson James decommitment. The Crowley pledge likely puts an end to running back recruiting for 2019. 

There's no doubt that other programs are using the Meyer situation as ammunition on the recruiting trail and we'll have to see if it inflicts any damage as the early signing period approaches. Long-time commit Doug Nester has made multiple visits to other schools (though he does seem solid) and the Buckeyes are battling to keep things together for 2019 while also putting on some finishing touches.

Ohio State has 15 commits in the fold and the class currently sits at No. 12 in the country. There's plenty of work to be done as we take an updated look at the recruiting board amid all of the questions and concerns. 

THE BOARD
NAME POSITION RANK PREV. RATING OTHERS IN THE MIX
ZACH HARRISON DE 1 1 ★★★★★ Penn State•Michigan
JORDAN BATTLE DB 2 NA ★★★★ Alabama•Oklahoma•LSU•Miami
DARNELL WRIGHT OT 3 2 ★★★★★ Alabama•Tennessee
TREVOR KEEGAN OT 4 4 ★★★★ Michigan•Penn State•Georgia
TOMMY EICHENBERG LB 5 6 ★★★★ Boston College (Committed)
NICK BROEKER OT 6 11 ★★★ Ole Miss (Committed)
KAIIR ELAM CB 7 7 ★★★★ Florida•Georgia
CAVON BUTLER DT 8 NA ★★★ Kentucky (Committed)
J.D. DUPLAIN OG 9 9 ★★★ Michigan State (Committed)
D'VON ELLIES DT 10 10 ★★★ Penn State•Virginia Tech
JESTIN JACOBS LB 11 NA ★★★★ Iowa (Committed)

*Last month's edition can be found HERE. 


Zach Harrison's recruitment isn't exactly going like most Ohio State fans had hoped and expected it would. The five-star is planning to enroll early and could make a decision at any moment though no timeline is in place. He was back on campus for the Nebraska game, but it seems like things continue to trend away from the Buckeyes. 

Michigan has done a fantastic job in this recruitment and has since taken over the lead in the crystal ball. No one is writing Ohio State off in this one, but it seems like something is going to have to change for this to work out in the Buckeyes' favor. We saw it happen last cycle with Tyreke Smith, so maybe they can pull off another one?

Losing Zach Harrison to Michigan would be the single biggest recruiting miss of the Meyer regime. It would also give the Wolverines three of the country's top defensive ends. Yikes.

Perhaps it's a little unnerving to see a current Buckeye commit on this list, but I feel the Jordan Battle situation warrants just that. He's been the top-rated defender in the class dating back to June, but the Urban Meyer situation really seems to have shaken things up. The most concerning part is that he's yet to make it back to campus this fall and is scheduled to be in Tuscaloosa this weekend. Battle is incredibly talented and losing the defensive back pledge would be a major blow to the class.

Darnell Wright is still on the list and we'll reiterate once again that this is a total long shot. His recruitment seems to be coming down to Alabama and Tennessee, but the Buckeyes were thought to be the early favorite. Perhaps the staff can work a little bit of magic for one of the class's greatest positional needs.

Trevor Keegan holds steady at the No. 4 spot and Ole Miss commit Nick Broeker has moved up a bit on our board. Keegan seems fairly open with Michigan and Georgia both potentially ahead of the Buckeyes. He's taken officials to Columbus and Ann Arbor and will check out Athens and Clemson later this month.

Broeker has never been on Ohio State's campus, but the outlook is a bit more positive for the three-star Illinois native. The Buckeyes offered last month and are hoping to get a visit before he signs a letter of intent in December. One complication had been Sacred Heart Griffin's playoff schedule but its season came to an end last weekend in the second round.

Greg Studrawa and Co. will need to get him on campus in the near future before Broeker and the Cyclones' basketball season tips off later this month. For now, the 6-foot-6, 283-pounder may be the most likely addition at offensive tackle.

We have Florida defensive back Kaiir Elam holding strong at the seven spot. There's still a need at cornerback and right now he's one of the few remaining options at the position. Florida and Georgia continue to lead the charge, however. If things do go awry with Jordan Battle, then I'd look for some new names to emerge in the secondary. 

One fresh Ohio offer remains on the board with Tommy Eichenberg manning the No. 5 spot. The expectation is for the Boston College commit to make a trip to campus sometime this month, and most are expecting a flip to happen at some point between now and signing day. His senior film has been very impressive and he's got the look of a mike linebacker at the next level. 

Two other in-state defenders make their debut as the Buckeyes are looking for multiple flips on the defensive side of the ball. Kentucky commit Cavon Butler looks like the most realistic option at defensive tackle, and the Toledo (Whitmer) product is planning to be in town for the Michigan game. The Buckeyes appear to be the favorite but his recruitment is heating up a bit after receiving yet another Big Ten offer.

The newest in-state offer came just last night and we're wasting no time getting Jestin Jacobs on the board. He's a four-star outside linebacker from Clayton's Northmont High School and he too is committed elsewhere at the moment. A Hawkeye pledge since this past May, it's safe to assume the Buckeye interest is very real with an offer coming this late in the process. Craig Young and Steele Chambers could end up at linebacker, but it's clear the staff is wanting even more for 2019.

Spartan commit J.D. Duplain is yet another Ohioan still on our board, but the Michigan State pledge doesn't seem like a slam dunk to flip just yet. A three-star interior lineman from Strongsville, Duplain has also been in contact with the Clemson staff and that would absolutely be an offer to watch out for. He's the nations No. 38 prospect at guard.

We've still got D'Von Ellies on the board at tackle, though this one is probably trending elsewhere. He was at Happy Valley for the contest against Ohio State last month and the most recent forecast from 247 Sports' Brian Dohn – who's really dialed in with the region – was in favor of the Nittany Lions. Larry Johnson had been extremely high on the Maryland native, so we'll have to be on the lookout for any movement on this one.


The board has been infused with some heavy local flavor, and I suppose that's not a total surprise given needs, recent misses, and prospects who simply seem to be trending in the wrong direction. Some fans tend to have a negative connotation with late in-state offers, but I'd caution otherwise with the recent slew of new targets. 

Everything is fine.

Ohio State's back seven is still a disaster. Urban Meyer hasn't looked like himself for the last month. And Michigan is playing well and may be on the verge of stealing the top prospect the state has seen since the dawn of the internet-era recruiting rankings.

All of that being said, Ohio State still has a shot to win the rest of its games, earn a trip to Indy, and potentially a berth in the College Football Playoff. The recruiting class still has a strong foundation with a pair of five-stars in Garrett Wilson and Harry Miller and there's plenty more to come.

We've seen this time after time. Meyer pulls off some late-cycle wizardry and everything works out just fine. Is the 2019 class heading toward another top-five finish? Almost assuredly not, but 2020 is off to a roaring start and a young football team is 8-1 and has the chance to turn things around and make a run. 


          The Eleven Warriors Web Report Previews Ohio State's Trip to Michigan State      Cache   Translate Page      
The Eleven Warriors Web Report comes to you weekly from the Spectrum Sports studios in downtown Columbus, featuring our own Beau Bishop and Dan Hope along with former Buckeye linebacker Joshua Perry.

Coming off a 36-31 win for Ohio State over Nebraska this past weekend, our panel looks ahead to Saturday's game against Michigan State in East Lansing, where the Buckeyes will look to improve to 9-1 against a team that has notoriously played them tough in recent years, although Ohio State did win 48-3 last year.

Michigan State enters this weekend's matchup with the No. 1-ranked run defense in the Football Bowl Subdivision (71.7 rushing yards allowed per game). Ohio State's defense, meanwhile, is coming off another underwhelming performance against Nebraska, in which the Buckeyes allowed four touchdowns and 450 yards.

Yet while Nebraska is just 2-7 this season and Michigan State is 6-3, the Cornhuskers have a more explosive offense than the Spartans – whose offense has been plagued by injuries this season – and Bishop believes they will not pose as much of a threat to the Ohio State defense as they have in some years past, including in 2013 and 2015, when the Spartans defeated Ohio State teams that Perry played on.

"I do not believe that this Sparty has the type of offensive firepower that those Sparty teams did to make Ohio State pay," Bishop said. "I'm just not sure if they can keep up."

That said, Perry expects that Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio "will have something up his sleeve," so he said the Buckeyes need to bring their A-game up north.

"He's an Ohio guy, coached at Ohio State, so this means a lot to him," Perry said of Dantonio. "His defense, they come out of their shoes when they play Ohio State and he's a defensive coach, so I know he has something to do with that."

Hope expects the Spartans to draw motivation from their 48-3 loss last season, which could give them extra fuel to try to turn the tables against the Buckeyes at home even though they might no longer have a shot at winning the Big Ten title this year.

"They don't want to get embarrassed like that again, especially in front of their home stadium," Hope said. "Ohio State's a more talented team, but we haven't seen Ohio State play up to its talent in awhile. So if Ohio State's going to take care of business this game, they've really got to show they can play a complete game."

The show airs at various times throughout the week, including 1:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m., 9:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. Wednesday.


          The Hurry Up: Safety Brian Branch Discusses OSU Offer, Buckeyes Send Out Two More Offers And An Introduction To 2021 Florida Safety Terrell Tutt      Cache   Translate Page      
The Hurry Up is your nightly dose of updates from the Ohio State football recruiting trail, keeping tabs on the latest from commits and targets from around the country.
BRANCHING OUT

Ohio State co-defensive coordinator Alex Grinch gives Sandy Creek (Tyrone, Ga.) safety Brian Branch a call every week. But this week's conversation between the two sounded different than all the others.

Around 8:30 Monday night, Grinch dialed Branch's number and had an offer ready.

"It caught me by surprise because he calls me every week and I didn’t think this was the week he was going to offer. I was shock. I was speechless for like a minute," Branch said.

The offer is far from Branch's first. He also has interest from Louisville, Georgia Tech and South Carolina. Currently, 247Sports doesn't have a ranking for Branch. He's a 6-foot, 175-pound prospect in the class of 2020.

Over the summer, Branch attended a camp at the University of South Carolina, where he received his offer from the Gamecocks. He's also been on visits to Indiana and Georgia Tech ... and plans to be in Columbus soon.

"I haven’t been on any visits [to Columbus] yet but I hope to attend the Michigan game," he said. "I’m just looking for a coaching staff to actually care for you and can set you up in the long run."

Branch's recruiting process seems to be ramping up and the Ohio State offer should put in an express lane for others major programs to start calling. Branch is ready for it.

"I love everything about football, especially playing in big games where the crowd is into it," he said. "You work your whole life for that exact moment. It’s a blessing."

BUCKEYES SEND OUT TWO ADDITIONAL OFFERS

Branch wasn't the only prospect to receive a scholarship offer from the Buckeyes Monday.

Myers Park (Charlotte, N.C.) quarterback Drake Maye and Northmont (Ohio) linebacker Jestin Jacobs also announced offers from Ohio State.

Maye is in the class of 2021 and is considered a pro-style quarterback. He's listed at 6-foot-3, 180 pounds and is a legacy at North Carolina, where his father Mark played. The Tar Heels have offered May, as well as Tennessee and West Virginia. 

He throws to wide receiver Muhsin Muhammad III, who was in Columbus alongside Maye this past weekend for unofficial visits.

As for Jacobs, the in-state outside linebacker is a four-star prospect that's currently committed to Iowa. Jacobs gave the Hawkeyes his pledge on May 11.

He's ranked as Ohio's 12th-best overall recruit in the class of 2019 and as the nation's 18th-best prospect at his position. He'll attend the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Jan. 5, 2019, alongside many Ohio State targets and commits.

AN INTRODUCTION TO FLORIDA SAFETY TERRELL TUTT

Sunday afternoon, Trinity Christian (Jacksonville, Fla.) running back Marcus Crowley flipped his commitment from Miami to Ohio State. Crowley is just the latest Floridian to commit to the Urban Meyer and company as the Buckeyes already boast of Shaun Wade and Tyreke Johnson on their roster — who are both from Jacksonville.

Terrell Tutt, a 2021 safety at Sandalwood High School — also in Jacksonville, seeing a trend? — would love to join that group of names.

Tutt is a 5-foot-9, 150-pound safety, with room to grow. His name is starting to trickle into multiple recruiting circle as he's been on early visits to Georgia Tech and FIU. He was also recently invited to the 2019 National Combine, in association with the All-American Bowl.

The National Combine features 600 of the nation's top underclassmen. Multiple scouting organizations, including 247Sports, are always in attendance and it gives the athletes one of their first real chances to make an impact. So, you might start to see Tutt's name more.

"I have taken visits to schools and, so far, my favorite has been Georgia Tech because of the area that’s around it [Atlanta]," Tutt told Eleven Warriors. "I plan to take plenty more and Ohio Sate would definitely be a top consideration."

While Tutt said he hasn't been in contact with Ohio State, he'd definitely welcome a call.

"I most definitely have an interest in Ohio State because of the coaching staff and the defensive backs the school produces," Tutt said. "But I would definitely like to talk to Ohio State on a personal Level."

For what it's worth, Tutt — who feels his best on-field skills are his vision, patience, technique and sense of attack — has been in brief contact with Crowley.

"We don’t know each other personally but we have talked and messaged each other," Tutt said. "His commitment does influence others [in the area] because he shows what it takes to get to that level, to a school such as Ohio State."

          College football Top 25 roundup: No. 1 Alabama beats No. 4 LSU 29-0      Cache   Translate Page      

BATON ROUGE, La. — Tua Tagovailoa threw two touchdown passes and ran 44 yards for a score in his toughest test this season, Alabama's defense stifled No. 4 LSU, and the top-ranked Crimson Tide remained unbeaten with a 29-0 victory Saturday night.

Tagovailoa took the field wearing a brace on right knee, threw his first interception of the season late in the first half and also played into the fourth quarter for the first time this season. None of those developments proved consequential. He was 25-of-42 passing for 295 yards and moved as well as well as he needed to, particularly when he sprinted up the middle of the field or his long TD run in the third quarter to give Alabama (9-0, 6-0 SEC, No. 1 CFP) a 22-0 lead.

Tagovailoa limped off the field after that play, went into the medical tent for some treatment and rode a stationary bike on the sideline, but returned for the next series.

LSU (7-2, 4-2, No. 3 CFP) entered a chance to control of the SEC Western Division with a victory, but that began to decreasingly realistic with every possession.

Alabama led 16-0 by halftime and forced LSU punts on the Tigers' first nine possessions. LSU drove to the Alabama 15 on its 10th series early in the fourth quarter, only to miss a field goal with 10:45 to go.

Tigers quarterback Joe Burrow completed 18 of 35 passes for 184 yards. He was sacked five times and had a pass intercepted.

NO. 2 CLEMSON 77, LOUISVILLE 16

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Travis Etienne ran for 153 yards and two touchdowns and 350-pound defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence added a 2-yard scoring burst for Clemson.

The Tigers (6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference, No. 2 CFP) improved to 9-0 for the third time in four seasons and can wrap up their fourth ACC Atlantic Division title next week at Boston College.

Trevor Lawrence threw a pair of early touchdown passes. Etienne went over the 1,000-yard rushing mark and scored his ACC-leading 15th touchdown. Tavien Feaster added 101 yards rushing.

Freshman Lyn-J Dixon ran for 116 yards, the second time this season Clemson has had three runners with 100 or more yards. They finished with a season high 492 yards rushing.

Linebacker Isaiah Simmons had a pick-six, the Tigers collected five sacks, coach Dabo Swinney's eldest son Will caught a TD pass and even "Big Dex," a junior defensive tackle projected as a can't-miss, NFL first-rounder got in on the fun in the Tigers' "Fridge Package" against overmatched Louisville (2-7, 0-6).

NO. 3 NOTRE DAME 31, NORTHWESTERN 21

EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Ian Book threw for threw two touchdown passes and ran 23 yards for a score in the closing minutes to lead Notre Dame.

The Fighting Irish (9-0, No. 4 CFP) remained in line for a playoff spot and continued to build on their best start since the 2012 team went undefeated before losing to Alabama in the BCS championship game. The Wildcats (5-4) had won four in a row to grab the Big Ten West lead and they stayed in this one when it looked like Notre Dame was ready to pull away.

Book threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to a leaping Miles Boykin in the corner of the end zone and a 47-yarder to Michael Young in the third to give the Irish a 21-7 lead. He sealed it in the closing minutes when he turned up the left side for that 23-yard run.

NO. 5 MICHIGAN 42, NO. 14 PENN STATE 7

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Shea Patterson accounted for three touchdowns and Michigan put together a dominant performance on defense.

The Wolverines (8-1, 6-0 Big Ten, No. 5 CFP) moved a step closer toward their goals of winning a conference championship for the first time since 2004 and earning their first spot in the College Football Playoff. The Nittany Lions (6-3, 3-3, No. 14 CFP) scored with 1:59 left, avoiding getting shut out for the first time since 2001 against Michigan.

Karan Higdon ran for 132 yards and a score that put the Wolverines up 35-0 early in the fourth quarter. Michigan held Penn State to 186 yards and forced three turnovers, including Tommy Stevens' interception that was returned 62 yards by Brandon Watson for a touchdown.

NO. 6 GEORGIA 34, NO. 11 KENTUCKY 17

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — D'Andre Swift ran for a career-high 156 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries against Kentucky's vaunted defense and Georgia wrapped up its second straight Southeastern Conference Eastern Division title.

Swift had an 83-yard breakaway in the third quarter that gave Georgia (8-1, 6-1, No. 6 College Football Playoff) a 28-3 lead. He also had a nifty 20-yard scoring run in the second period when the game was close. Elijah Holyfield ran for a career-high 115 yards on 18 carries, scoring on a 4-yarder in the third quarter.

Georgia rushed for a season-high 331 yards to earn a spot in the SEC championship game Dec. 1 in Atlanta. Kentucky (7-2, 5-2, No. 9 CFP) has never reached the SEC championship game, which has been played every year since 1992.

NO. 7 OKLAHOMA 51, TEXAS TECH 46

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Kyler Murray recovered from a pair of early interceptions that led to a two-touchdown deficit, throwing for 360 yards and three touchdowns and running for 100 yards and another score to rally Oklahoma.

Trey Sermon set career highs with 206 yards rushing and three TDs as the Sooners (8-1, 5-1 Big 12) stayed in the hunt for a return to the College Football Playoff with their 19th straight win in a true road game and 14th consecutive November victory.

Oklahoma was seventh in the first playoff rankings released this past week.

The Red Raiders (5-4, 3-3) led 31-28 at halftime, but freshman quarterback Alan Bowman didn't return in the second half of their eighth straight loss against a Top 10 team going back to 2012. Texas Tech officials didn't immediately say why Bowman left the game.

Texas Tech punted three straight times without getting a first down after Jett Duffey replaced Bowman again, just as he did five weeks ago when Bowman sustained a partially collapsed lung against West Virginia. Bowman returned two weeks ago against Kansas.

Duffey then started moving the Red Raiders, and they pulled within two on his 4-yard scoring pass to Zach Austin on fourth down midway through the fourth quarter. But Robert Barnes intercepted the 2-point conversion pass and returned it 98 yards for two points and a 44-40 OU lead.

NO. 8 OHIO STATE 36, NEBRASKA 31

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — J.K. Dobbins ran for three touchdowns and Dwayne Haskins Jr. passed for two more scores to help Ohio State beat Nebraska.

After Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to JD Spielman to pull within five with 3 minutes left, Dobbins pounded away for two first downs to run out the clock.

Before the late Nebraska score, Dobbins broke through the right side and romped for a 42-yard touchdown with 5 minutes left to give Ohio State (8-1, 5-1 Big Ten, No. 10 CFP) breathing room.

Dobbins rushed for a season-high 163 yards — only his second 100-yard game this season. Running back Mike Weber added 91 yards on the ground.

Martinez threw for 266 yards and touchdown and rushed for two scores for Nebraska (2-7, 1-5).

NO. 10 WASHINGTON STATE 19, CALIFORNIA 13

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Gardner Minshew threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Easop Winston Jr. with 32 seconds left to lift Washington State past California, extending WSU's long-shot quest to crash the College Football Playoff.

Minshew threw for 334 yards for Washington State (8-1, 5-1 Pac-12, No. 8 CFP), which is also seeking its first Pac-12 North title. The Cougars have a 12-game home winning streak, fourth-longest in the nation.

Chase Garbers threw for 127 yards and ran for 67 for Cal (5-4, 2-4).

This is Washington State's first 8-1 start since 2002.

NO. 12 WEST VIRGINIA 42, NO. 15 TEXAS 41

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Will Grier threw a 33-yard touchdown pass to Gary Jennings with 16 seconds left, and then ran in the 2-point conversion to lift West Virginia past Texas.

Grier broke his finger on a run to the pylon in the first quarter of a loss to Texas last year, and his winning run came on a similar scramble. But there was no defender near him this time as he held the ball up while crossing the goal line untouched.

The 2-point conversion came moments after Grier connected with David Sills. Texas had called timeout just before the ball was snapped so the Mountaineers had to line up again. Grier dropped back, took a step into the pocket, and then swung out to his left to break for the corner of the end zone.

Grier drove the Mountaineers (7-1, 5-1 Big 12, No. 13 CFP) to the win after Texas grabbed a 41-34 lead on Sam Ehlinger's touchdown throw to Devin Duvernay with 2:34 to play.

Grier finished with 346 yards passing and three touchdowns, two to Sills.

Ehlinger passed for 356 yards and three scores and also ran for a touchdown for Texas (6-3, 4-2, No. 17 CFP), which has lost two in a row.

MISSOURI 38, NO. 13 FLORIDA 17

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Drew Lock picked apart Florida's defense for the second straight year, throwing three touchdown passes to lead Missouri.

Lock completed 24 of 32 passes for 250 yards, with scoring throws to Albert Okwuegbunam, Kam Scott and Emanuel Hall that stunned the Swamp. Fortunately for the Gators (6-3, 4-3 Southeastern Conference), they won't have to face the senior and possible first-round draft pick again.

They might have seen the last of Feleipe Franks, too.

Coach Dan Mullen benched Franks late in the third quarter — the home crowd cheered wildly — and backup Kyle Trask promptly directed a 75-yard touchdown drive in which he converted two fourth downs. Trask found Josh Hammond in the end zone on the second one for a 7-yard score that made it 35-17.

The Tigers (5-4, 1-4) responded with a field goal that essentially sealed their first SEC win of the season and sent fans scrambling for the exits.

ARIZONA STATE 38, NO. 16 UTAH 20

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Manny Wilkins threw three touchdown passes to N'Keal Harry and Arizona State beat Utah, knocking the No. 16 Utes out of sole possession of first place in Pac-12 South.

The Utes (6-3, 4-3 Pac-12) lost quarterback Tyler Huntley to a broken collarbone in the third quarter. The loss snapped Utah's four-game winning streak.

Huntley was injured when he was hit while forcing a throw with 5:33 left in the third quarter. Freshman Jason Shelly replaced him and the offense struggled after that.

Harry caught nine passes for 161 yards, including TD catches of three, 23 and 61 yards. His three TD catches were a career high. Wilkins completed 19 of 24 for 285 yards and three scores with one interception. Eno Benjamin rushed for 175 yards, including a 44-yard TD run that sealed the victory with 4:12 to play. Arizona State (5-4, 3-3) gained 536 yards against a Utah defense that had been ranked No. 1 in the Pac-12.

SMU 45, NO. 17 HOUSTON 31

DALLAS (AP) — Ben Hicks threw for 318 yards and four touchdowns and SMU beat Houston, the second time in three years the Mustangs upset a ranked Cougars team.

The Mustangs (4-5, 3-2 American) never trailed, jumping out to a 17-0 lead after Hicks threw his second TD, a 17-yarder to Tyler Page less than a minute into the second quarter. Houston played its first game as a ranked team under second-year coach Major Applewhite.

Hicks threw three touchdowns as a redshirt freshman in the shocker two years ago, when SMU beat the then-No. 11 Cougars 38-16 and knocked them all of the way out of the poll.

After Houston (7-2, 4-1, No. 17 CFP) got to 38-31 on quarterback D'Eriq King's 3-yard touchdown run with 9:34 left, the Mustangs went on a time-consuming 13-play drive that ended with Ke'Mon Freeman's second touchdown run, an 8-yarder with 2:43 left. That drive was interrupted for about 90 minutes because of lightning and heavy rain. Freeman ran 20 times for 107 yards.

NO. 18 UTAH STATE 56, HAWAII 17

HONOLULU (AP) — Darwin Thompson and Gerold Bright each ran for three touchdowns as Utah State extended its winning streak to eight games.

The Aggies (8-1, 5-0 Mountain West) amassed 601 yards of total offense, including 426 rushing, and had a pair of 28-point quarters to pull away from the Rainbow Warriors (6-5, 3-3).

Thompson rushed 13 times for a career-best 141 yards and scored on a pair of 1-yard runs, as well as a 26-yard sprint. Bright carried a career-high 16 times for 121 yards and found the end zone on runs of 18, 47 and 9 yards.

Jordan Love threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Ron'quavion Tarver and ran in a 1-yard score on the final play of the first quarter.

Cole McDonald threw a pair of touchdown passes for Hawaii, which finished with 390 yards of total offense.

PURDUE 38, NO. 19 IOWA 36

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Spencer Evans made a 25-yard field goal with 8 seconds left, lifting Purdue past Iowa and back in the Big Ten's West Division title hunt.

David Blough threw three touchdown passes to Terry Wright and topped the 300-yard mark for the fifth time this season. The Boilermakers (5-4, 4-2 Big Ten) have won five of their last six and beat their third ranked team this season — the first time they've achieved that feat since 2003 — to move within one game of division leader Northwestern.

The Hawkeyes (6-3, 3-3) lost their second straight road game despite Nate Stanley's big day. The junior quarterback threw for 275 yards with one TD and ran for another but the conference's No. 2 scoring defense allowed a season-high point total.And when the Hawkeyes needed one last stop, Blough drove Purdue 43 yards to set up Evans for the winning kick.

NO. 20 FRESNO STATE 48, UNLV 3

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Marcus McMaryion threw for two touchdowns and 274 yards and Fresno State's defense had a near-perfect game.

Fresno State (8-1, 5-0 Mountain West) won its seventh straight and ended its two-game losing streak to the Rebels. The Bulldogs kept their one-game lead in the West Division over San Diego State, which won at New Mexico 31-23 Saturday night.

McMaryion completed 26 of 35 passes and rushed for 39 yards as his defense held UNLV to 175 total yards of offense through three quarters.

KeeSean Johnson had eight receptions for 97 yards to move his streak to 45 consecutive games with a catch. Coming into Saturday, Johnson led the nation in active career receptions at 234.

Fresno State's defense only allowed the Rebels over midfield twice in the first three quarters.

Charles Williams, a Fresno native, was the lone bright spot for UNLV (2-7, 0-5) as he rushed for 121 yards on 16 carries. UNLV's Max Gilliam was 14 of 30 for 98 yards for the Rebels, who will not be bowl eligible due to the loss.

NO. 22 SYRACUSE 41, WAKE FOREST 24

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Eric Dungey rushed for 119 yards and a touchdown, Jarveon Howard ran for two scores and Syracuse beat Wake Forest.

Dungey — whose average of 294.1 total yards per game ranks second in the ACC — was 23 of 35 for 157 yards and also ran for a 26-yard score to help the Orange (7-2, 4-2, No. 19 CFP) win their first game as a Top 25 team since the Dwight Freeney days in 2001.

Moe Neal added an 8-yard score, Chris Elmore had a 5-yard TD run and Andre Szmyt kicked two field goals for Syracuse, which earned its first conference road victory in more than two years.

Sam Hartman was 21 of 37 for 275 yards for the Demon Deacons (4-5, 1-4) with two touchdown passes.

NO. 21 MISSISSIPPI STATE 45, LOUISIANA TECH 3

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Nick Fitzgerald threw for 243 yards and four touchdowns and Mississippi State beat Louisiana Tech.

Mississippi State (6-3, No. 18 CFP) didn't have much trouble, scoring 21 points in the first quarter of what quickly turned into a lopsided game. Fitzgerald completed 17 of 28 passes and threw his touchdowns to Stephen Guidry, Deddrick Thomas, Kylin Hill and Jesse Jackson.

Fitzgerald also ran for 107 yards. Mississippi State has a 16-3 record during Fitzgerald's career when he breaks the 100-yard mark.

Louisiana Tech (6-3) was competitive in a loss to LSU this season, but its second game against a Southeastern Conference opponent didn't go well. J'Mar Smith completed 14 of 30 passes for 98 yards.

NO. 24 BOSTON COLLEGE 31, VIRGINIA TECH 21

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Travis Levy ran for two touchdowns and Boston College beat Virginia Tech to set up a huge home game against Clemson next week.

BC (7-2, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference, No. 22 CFP) limited the Hokies to 32 yards in the third quarter and erased a 14-7 deficit with 21 unanswered points after halftime. First-place in the ACC Atlantic Division will be on the line when the second-ranked Tigers visit Boston College.

Ryan Willis threw for 281 yards with three touchdown passes for Virginia Tech (4-4, 3-2), but the Hokies lost their third straight at home for the first time since 1992. It came on a day when they could have moved into a share of first place in the Coastal Division with a victory.

AUBURN 28, NO. 25 TEXAS A&M 24

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Seth Williams caught an 11-yard touchdown pass from Jarrett Stidham with 1:41 left and Auburn rallied to beat Texas A&M.

The Tigers (6-3, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) had a 14-point outburst over the final 5:14 and the defense came up with big stops. Stidham delivered big on both final drives.

Kellen Mond and the Aggies (5-4, 3-3) pushed the ball into Auburn territory on their final drive, converting a fourth-and-5. Then a holding call pushed them back across midfield and Mond's desperation pass into the end zone was incomplete. Officials put a second back on the clock, and Mond was sacked by Nick Coe on the final play.

          Stores pushing supplies for stay-at-home summer      Cache   Translate Page      

WEST CHESTER, Ohio – Jenny Schwarz’s shopping cart was loaded – a plug-in cooler, new cushions for her outdoor furniture, toys for the backyard pool. All things good to have for a “staycation.”

That’s what you call a vacation spent at or near home, and with gas prices still climbing in a belt-tightening economy, the Schwarzes are among the many Americans expecting to be in their backyards a lot this summer.

It’s the normal time of year for stores to be pushing vacation-time cookouts, camping and games, but with shoppers cautious about spending, stores are promoting low-cost activities even more than usual. Retailers are also seeing more interest in small ways customers can make their houses nicer places to spend the season.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the nation’s largest retailer, has launched an “American Summer” campaign, featuring tents, grills, coolers, wicker furniture sets and inflatable pools, saying a summer getaway is “as close as your own back yard.” Rivals Target Corp., touting “fun under the sun” in its circular, and Kohl’s Corp., with a “sale into summer” promotion were among other retailers cutting prices on swimwear, patio sets and other such merchandise.

With research showing that many households plan to cut back on summer travel – a Rand McNally survey found two-thirds plan to shorten or cancel summer road trips – Wal-Mart is rolling back prices on everything from mosquito repellant to portable DVD players to baked beans and barbecue sauce.

“Americans are still wanting to have a great summer,” said Wal-Mart spokeswoman Melissa O’Brien. “They want to enjoy those quick weekend getaways and socialization around the backyard cookout.”

Like the retail promotions aimed at drawing people into stores with their federal economic stimulus checks, current efforts to spur summer spending will probably have mixed success, said Nick McCoy, a home goods and home improvement consultant for Columbus-based TNS Retail Forward.

“It’s true that a lot of people are staying at home rather than traveling,” he said. “However, because of the incredible pressures in terms of rising gas prices and food prices and job uncertainty, I don’t see people spending a lot of money on things they wouldn’t otherwise. They’re still holding onto their wallets very tightly.”

He said discounters might do best with lower-priced merchandise, such as Target’s new Whim by Cynthia Rowley collection, which includes picnic supplies and backyard games.

“Things to make the yard just more fun, but not big expenditures,” said McCoy.

Schwarz, who stocked up on summer supplies at Wal-Mart, said that with five children, her family expects to focus on activities in their southwest Ohio suburban community. She said they usually make a couple of trips to Lake Cumberland in Kentucky, but will cut their car travel this summer to one trip packed with a lot of sightseeing stops.

“We’re definitely condensing trips,” she said. “We’re also talking about getting Kings Island passes (a theme park in neighboring Mason) and making that our vacation.”

Mary Kambola, who was checking out grilling meats in a Wal-Mart in West Chester, isn’t optimistic about the summer ahead.

“We’ll be going out less,” she said. “Everything’s going up, the gas and food.”

Even staying home to cook will cost more this summer – the price of an average barbecue, with burgers, hot dogs, salad, drinks and supplies – will cost an estimated 6 percent more than last year.

At a nearby Target, shoppers were snapping up outdoor chairs marked down nearly 30 percent, and at a neighboring Meijer Inc. store shoppers could use “Backyard Coupons” to take $100 off patio sets.

Minneapolis-based Target said this week that first-quarter earnings fell 8 percent on weaker-than-expected sales. President and chief executive Gregg Steinhafel said the company is stressing sale prices, “very mindful that the consumer is very cash-strapped right now.”

Kohl’s, based in Menomonee Falls, Wis., is offering a new collection by celebrity chef Bobby Flay for grilling and entertaining at home. Spokeswoman Elizabeth DeLuca said the company knows shoppers are very cost-conscious, but declined to discuss its summer strategy.

Wal-Mart store manager Dane Bryan said sales have been brisk for flowers and landscaping materials, indicating that more people plan to use extra time at home to spruce up their yards.

Home improvement retailer Lowe’s Cos., which reported a nearly 18 percent drop in first-quarter earnings this week, said its stores were seeing relatively good sales in areas such as painting, lawn and landscaping supplies.

“Even in today’s tough economic times, consumers appear willing to take on smaller projects around the home,” said Larry Stone, the company’s president and chief operating officer.

The stay-home trend is even helping sales of air fresheners, scented candles and the like, said Martin Hettich, who is Procter & Gamble Co.’s air care marketing director for North America, including for the Febreze brand.

“What we’re finding is that people are cutting down on their trips to the mall, they’re eating out less; by virtue of spending more time in their home, they actually want to make sure their homes smell nicer,” Hettich said.

Ellen Humphrey, of West Chester, is looking forward to hosting frequent cookouts for her and her husband’s family, including five grown children and stepchildren.

“Ultimately, it’s probably going to cost us a little more this summer, because we’ll be feeding the family,” she said with a chuckle. “But we like that.”

Netflix rings in the holiday celebrations with “The Christmas Chronicles.” The Christmas Chronicles is a holiday adventure from producer Chris Columbus (“Home Alone”, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”) and director Clay Kaytis (“The Angry Birds Movie”), tells the story of sister and brother, Kate (Darby Camp) and Teddy Pierce (Judah Lewis), whose Christmas Eve plan to catch Santa Claus (Kurt Russell) on camera turns into an unexpected journey that most kids could only dream about. After staking out Santa’s arrival, they sneak into his sleigh, cause it to crash and nearly derail Christmas. As their wild night unfolds, Kate and Teddy work together with Santa – as you’ve never seen him before – and his loyal Elves to save Christmas before it’s too late. “No one is better suited than Kurt Russell to bring our version of a rugged, charismatic, and hilarious Santa Claus to life. From our first meeting, he completely threw himself into this iconic role – and grew an impressive beard in the process. It has been a dream come true to work with Kurt in creating what I believe will be the new definition of Santa Claus for generations to come,” director Clay Kaytis said. [...]

          Senat beschließt wichtige Investitionen für die Hafeninfrastruktur in Bremerhaven      Cache   Translate Page      
Foto:Bremerhaven.de ©Helmut Gross
Bremens Senat hat heute mit dem Neubau der Nordmole und dem Ersatzneubau der Kaje 66 zwei wichtige Inventionsvorhaben für die Hafeninfrastruktur in Bremerhaven auf den Weg gebracht. Die Bremerhavener Nordmole sichert bzw. schützt seit über einhundert Jahren die Zufahrt zum Fischereihafen. Aufgrund ihres Baualters und insbesondere wegen ihres derzeitigen baulichen Zustandes ist ein Ersatzneubau dringend erforderlich.
„Der Neubau der Nordmole stärkt die Wirtschaft im Fischereihafen. Deshalb haben wir uns dafür entschieden, die zwingend erforderliche Baumaßnahme dafür zu nutzen, die Einfahrt in die Geestemündung neu zu gestalten. Künftig werden auch größere Schiffe den Fischereihafen ohne nautische Probleme erreichen können. Dies ist ein erster wichtiger Schritt, um das wirtschaftliche Potential des Fischereihafens künftig noch besser nutzen zu können.“, so Martin Günthner, Senator für Wirtschaft, Arbeit und Häfen. Zugleich verwies der Senator darauf, dass bei der Gestaltung der künftigen Nordmole städtebauliche Belange eine wichtige Rolle spielen werden. „Die Nordmole soll auch nach dem Neubau ihre stadtbildprägende Bedeutung behalten. Dies ist bei den weiteren Planungen zu berücksichtigen.“
Dem Neubau gingen umfassende Untersuchungen nach einer bestmöglichen technischen und wirtschaftlichen Lösung voraus. Durch bremenports, das Fraunhofer Center for Maritime Logistics und den Baugrund- und Sedimentationsexperten Prof. Nasner wurde, auch mit Blick auf potenziell künftige Nutzungen des Fischereihafenareals, der Vorschlag zu einem Neubau in veränderter Lage erarbeitet. Die Planungs- und Baukosten belaufen sich nach aktuellem Standen auf ca. 25,54 Millionen Euro.
Auch die Standsicherheit der über 50 Jahre alten Kaje 66 ist aufgrund von Korrosionsschäden, einer nur noch eingeschränkt funktionstüchtigen Spundwandentwässerung und einer Schiffskollision im März 2017 nicht mehr vollständig gewährleistet. Die Kaje befindet sich im Eckbereich zwischen der Columbuskaje und der Einfahrt der Nordschleuse an der Weser. Die Nordschleuse ist neben der Kaiserschleuse eine von zwei Zufahrten zum abgeschleusten Überseehafen. Um zukünftig die Schleusenzufahrt zum Überseehafengebiet zu sichern, ist ein Ersatzneubau der 320 Meter langen Kaje erforderlich.
„Derzeit passieren jährlich etwa 2.000 Schiffe die Nordschleuse. Mit dem geplanten Ersatzneubau der Kaje 66 soll die Zufahrt zur Schleuse auch in Zukunft gesichert werden. Außerdem ist sie im Falle von Sanierungsarbeiten an der Kaiserschleuse die einzige Zufahrt zum Überseehafen“, betont Senator Günthner die Notwendigkeit des Vorhabens.
Die Kosten für den Ersatzneubar der Kaje 66 werden sich insgesamt auf ca.17,7 Millionen Euro belaufen.

          Comment on 5 Reasons You’ll Fall In Love With Northeast Ohio by Tom      Cache   Translate Page      
Having lived in 5 different states, and now as a permanent resident of Ohio (Cleveland Suburb,) I think the article hits the nail on the head. She left out Oktoberfest, though - it's the largest outdoor festival in Ohio! I'm looking forward to the gorgeous fall leaves in few weeks, and after that, snowboarding. Cuyahoga Valley National Park is the most-visited National Park, and is 10 minutes from my house. It's part of the Emerald Necklace, which is a great system of parks that semi-surrounds Cleveland. Not sure what the other poster meant about "pea soup." Algal blooms occasionally happen near Detroit. If you're traveling near Columbus or middle Ohio, I recommend a day or two at Hocking Hills. It looks like a different country; just jaw-dropping. Traveling through northwest Ohio? Stop by Put-in-Bay; weekdays are nice & relaxing, while weekends are NOT family-friendly. ;) For a great day trip, rent a golf cart to see the island - ferries are expensive for RVs.

My first thought on the video's appearance was 'Who the f**k is the Sandy Duncan lookalike in skinny jeans?'  That's the hideous Tommy Vietor. 

America, Tommy will next play Peter Pan in the grand tradition of Mary Martin, Sandy Ducan, et al.

My second thought was, WTF?

November 2nd, C.I. pointed out:

Debra Messing 'discovers' Iraq.  How very Columbus of her.  She discovers it to complain that more US troops are on the US border than in Iraq.  She's upset that there are not more US troops in Iraq.  15 years and counting of ongoing war and Debra is upset that more US troops are not in Iraq.

To Debra, this passes for 'logic.'  Because, to Debra, continued and never-ending war -- hell, war period -- is a-okay and normal.  War period?  Debra Messing didn't speak out about the Iraq War.  It was even a joke on WILL & GRACE.  Debra's character protested not getting free noodles.  That she protested.  She said good people have to care and it was all a joke that she didn't care about war.

That's what the world is up against, selfish bitches who don't give a damn about people dying.  The only time people matter to the Debra Messings is when they can be used for political football.  So, to attack Donald Trump, Debra suddenly 'discovers' the Iraq War.  She's fine with it.  She doesn't protest it.  She doesn't even call for an end to it.  She's glad it's there because it allows her to use it for political football.

Shame on anyone who buys into her crap.

You can call out what Donald Trump is doing without seeking to justify war.

Otherwise, you're just the ridiculous Jim Sciuotto who only mentions Iraq to either endorse it so he can whine about the march or to endorse it so he can whine about the fact that, in two years of being president, Donald Trump has not visited Iraq.  (For those who've forgotten, in eight years as president, Barack Obama only visited Iraq once.)

The wars are nothing but political props that the Jims and Debras grab on to repeatedly to try to political football.  The fact that people are dying doesn't matter to them.  Like the late Barbara Bush, they don't bother their 'beautiful minds' with such things.




POD SAVE AMERICA is not about 'progressives.'  It's about the whorish men who worked for Barack Obama, someone who could have changed the country for the better but instead sold to repeatedly sell out the people.  But the bankers loved him, he was there go-to.

POD SAVE AMERICA should be called out for the crap it is, nothing but a war promoting piece of trash by piece of trash men who want war but never sever in them.


Closing with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"


Tuesday, November 6, 2018.  Iraq still doesn't have a Minister of Defense or a Minister of Interior, let's not pretend that's not a big deal.

Iraq still does not have a full cabinet.  Adel Abdul al-Mahdi was moved from prime minister-designate to prime minister without meeting the sole provision required: Form a government.  That is a full cabinet.  In fairness to al-Mahdi, this provision has been waived for the previous prime ministers as well.  But the reality is that he has sent a message, from the start of his term, that the rules don't apply.  He currently has 14 Cabinet ministers which means eight posts are empty.




TRT: How much longer can they delay choosing these ministers and how detrimental is it for the country?

Douglas A. Ollivant:  Actually, they can delay a long time.  It's important to remember that in Nouri al-Maliki's second term as the prime minister -- in 2010 to 2014 -- he never appointed a minister of defense or interior.  He had acting minister that he installed without parliamentary approval that never had full powers. So this is not a crisis.  They have a government.  There are a couple of ministers that they disagree on -- some are just resume problems as you alluded to, too many ties to the former regime, so they'll make substitutions there.  The real fights are for defense and interior.

Background, Ollivant is considered an 'expert' on Iraq by those who need to bring on non-Iraqis because, heaven forbid, even all this time later, an Iraqi analyst might speak about Iraq.  Ollivant is part of the failed COIN strategy -- counter-intelligence.  It did not win hearts and minds nor, in fact, did it win battlefields.  Paying off Iraqis to stop attacking US installations and American troops was far more effective than COIN ever was.  Dropping back to the April 8, 2008 snapshot:

Today The Petraeus & Crocker Variety Hour took their act on the road.  First stop, the Senate Armed Services Committee.  Gen David Petraeus and US Ambassador Ryan Crocker are supposed to be providing a status report on the Iraq War.  They didn't.  In fact, Petraeus made clear that the status report would come . . . next September.  When the results are this bad, you stall -- which is exactly what Petraeus did. 


The most dramatic moment came as committee chair Carl Levin was questioning Petraeus and a man in the gallery began exclaiming "Bring them home!" repeatedly.  (He did so at least 16 times before he was escorted out).  The most hilarious moment was hearing Petraeus explain that it's tough in the school yard and America needs to fork over their lunch money in Iraq to avoid getting beat up.  In his opening remarks, Petraues explained of the "Awakening" Council (aka "Sons of Iraq," et al) that it was a good thing "there are now over 91,000 Sons of Iraq -- Shia as well as Sunni -- under contract to help Coalition and Iraqi Forces protect their neighborhoods and secure infrastructure and roads.  These volunteers have contributed significantly in various areas, and the savings in vehicles not lost because of reduced violence -- not to mention the priceless lives saved -- have far outweighed the cost of their monthly contracts."  Again, the US must fork over their lunch money, apparently, to avoid being beat up. 




How much lunch money is the US forking over?  Members of the "Awakening" Council are paid, by the US, a minimum of $300 a month (US dollars).  By Petraeus' figures that mean the US is paying $27,300,000 a month.  $27 million a month is going to the "Awakening" Councils who, Petraeus brags, have led to "savings in vehicles not lost".  Again, in this morning's hearings, the top commander in Iraq explained that the US strategy is forking over the lunch money to school yard bullies.  What a proud  moment for the country.


Now back to David.

Douglas A. Ollivant:  Actually, they can delay a long time.  It's important to remember that in Nouri al-Maliki's second term as the prime minister -- in 2010 to 2014 -- he never appointed a minister of defense or interior.  He had acting minister that he installed without parliamentary approval that never had full powers. So this is not a crisis.  They have a government.  There are a couple of ministers that they disagree on -- some are just resume problems as you alluded to, too many ties to the former regime, so they'll make substitutions there.  The real fights are for defense and interior.


First off, I'm so glad to hear Dougie say what he said regarding Nouri's second term.  Because in real time, we were the only ones saying it.  We stood alone in pointing out that the Constitution did nto recognize 'acting ministers' and that anyone Nouri put in place without Parliament was not in place because they had no real power and Nouri could replace them on a whim.  (Ministers are confirmed by Parliament.  Once confirmed, they either resign or Parliament votes them out.  They cannot be 'fired' by Nouri.)  This was a big deal and we documented why in real time.

Doug didn't tell the truth then so it's no surprise he's bungling it again.

Why does this matter?

Why did we spend so much time on this topic throughout Nouri's second term.

The Ministry of the Interior is over security forces such as the police.  The Ministry of Defense is over the military.

These are important posts at any point.  As we noted throughout Nouri's second term, they were posts that needed to be filled.  If they were not filled, Nouri was responsible for them and that meant he was responsible for all that followed.

We said Iraq was falling apart because it was.  You cannot persecute the people and expect no push back.  ISIS took hold in Nouri's second term because of his paranoia which led to constantly persecuting the people and because he had secret prisons and torture chambers.

If Iraq truly had a Minister of Defense and a Minister of Interior at that time, there would have been two other voices offering input and shaping policy.  Instead, the only voices were the ones in Nouri's head.

Iraq's back to that period.  al-Mahdi can't seem to nominate a Minister of Defense or Interior.  And how are things going in the country?

Sunday, multiple bombings in Baghdad with at least six dead -- correction, at least seven.  Monday, more bombs followed.  Margaret Griffis (ANTIWAR.COM) reports, "More bombs were reported in the Baghdad area, even though the Interior Ministry spokesman, Maj. Gen. Saad Maan, claimedthat no blasts occurred."

Is this really a time to leave the posts of Minister of Defense and Minister of Interior empty?

Dropping back to July 25, 2011:

Meanwhile Iraq's security ministries remain without leadership. The Ministry of the Interior, the Ministy of National Security and the Ministry of Defense should have had a minister named to each back in December. Nouri failed to do so. He has continued to fail at that basic -- and Constitutionally mandated -- task. Aswat al-Iraq reports on what may be an attempt to force Nouri's hand. Tareq al-Hashemi is Iraq's Sunni vice president. He is also a member of Iraqiya. And he is stating that if Iraqiya pushes him for Minister of Defense, he will accept the post. State of Law's Sami al-Askary is in a panic:


As regards to the position of Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki and his State of Law Coalition towards the said topic, Askary said that “through previous experiences, it is difficult to reach an understanding between Maliki and Hashimy for clear reasons,” adding: “I don’t think that this process would succeed.”
“The motive behind Hashimy’s nomination for the Defense Minister’s post is to put Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki, in an embarrassing position.” Askary stated.


Nouri's failed to address the security ministries and he's failed to address many things.



The fact that it's a constitutionally mandated duty should force al-Mahdi to act quickly.  If that's not enough for him, he might want to remember how Nouri as prime minister, Minister of Defense and Minister of Interior worked out: Mosul was seized by ISIS in the final months of Nouri's second term.


For his own image, you'd think al-Mahdi would move quickly to install others who can share the blame should the security situation get even worse.

Amnesty's Donatella Rovera notes al-Mahdi notes the current situation could have been predicted and, in fact, was . . . by al-Mahdi himself.


PM Abdul Mahdi knew ‘s problems, But his cabinet choices show he may not have the solutions. He wrote on Facebook 5 months ago that he didn’t want to be PM because the toxic political culture would make it impossible to govern. It seems he was right
 
 



The empty posts aren't the only problem for the Cabinet.


There are rumours that four cabinet ministers within the new AAH government may lose their positions. Details on Al-Mada:
 
 


And there's more.

In Iraq, MP from Fatah Coalition: some of PM Abdel-Mahdi's cabinet picks will be replaced due to their investigation by the Accountability & Justice Commission.
 
 




The Justice and Accountability Commission?  It was used in the past to control who could run for the Parliament and who couldn't.  Nouri, as prime minister, used it as his own political hit team.  The notion that this corrupt commission -- which has no right to exist today, they were supposed to close shop -- is returning

Friday, November 2, 2018.  Actions in DC this weekend as the never-ending wars continue.


On this week's BLACK AGENDA RADIO, hosts Glen Ford and Nellie Bailey spoke with Omali Yeshitela about a number of topics including the actions in DC this weekend which include the march Saturday on the White House.


Nellie Bailey:  This year, the theme is US Out Of Africa. Omali Yeshitela is chairman of the Black Is Back Coalition.  He says the US Command in Africa (AFRICOM) is there to prop up foreign, economic and social control over the continent.  But Yeshitela says American global rule is in disarray.

Omali Yeshitela: Things are falling apart but it's an extremely dangerous moment as well -- which is one of those things that makes our mobilization so important and even how we've characterized our mobilization: There is no peace, Africa and Africans are at war, US to the world "Comply or Die."
I think it's quite appropriate, looking at what we see, that this chaos -- and some of it even maybe planned chaos -- this false debate that's going on between different sectors of the ruling class who are calling themselves Republicans and Democrats as part of a shell game that they play against the masses of people, with some of them using impoverished and desperate people, in order to make their political point while others are using the same phenomenon to make a point that speaks to reaction and calling on the whole reactionary history of the United States government and the White population of this country.  So you've got one sector with a very cynical and callous way of using the poverty, the oppression, even the actions of repressive sector of the bourgeois -- right now Trump represents the public face of that -- so you've got them using those actions to mobilize people, or attempt to mobilize people, for their own benefit which serves capital and not the people.  Then you've got people like Trump and the social base that he represents in terms of reaction.  All of them, again, using the people.  And that's why the Black is Back mobilization is so critical at this moment because it calls on African people to get organized.  It calls on Black people to get organized.  It calls on us to come to terms with the fact that even when we look at this crisis of imperialism, that there's an escalated aggression that's being made against our people, against the people of the world, and even against the ability of the people to protest against the things that are happening to us.  So it's a splendid moment but it's also, like I said, a very dangerous moment.  A wounded animal, as you know, as has often been described correctly so, is most dangerous and that's what we're looking at here with the United States government, US imperialism and, in many ways, imperialism in general.  But, of course, the hegemon is wounded and that creates an interesting sort of dynamics because everyone who is the friend of the hegemon is not a friend.  They're a friend because it's  the hegemon, it's got the guns, it's got all the money, it's got all the influence or appears to have but as you see US imperialism showing any signs of weakness in that case you will see -- and we are seeing -- the emergence of other forces who are willing -- even if timidly -- to challenge the hegemon for its own space and for its own interest. It's a very interesting and critical moment in history and the Black is Back is right on time, I think, to be pushing this mobilization.





The Black is Back coalition notes:

Hundreds of black people from throughout the U.S. and from every town, city and state, will descend on Washington, D.C.—capital of imperialist white power—on November 3 and 4.
This is a Call for you to take your place in the rally, march and conference with the Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations under the banner: “There is no Peace: Africa and Africans are at War!”
For nine years in a row the Black is Back Coalition has been leading the charge to unite our people against the growing, desperate white nationalist attacks by the U.S. and other imperialist countries against our people and the colonized peoples and countries of the U.S. and the world.
The Coalition is calling on everyone to join with our brothers and sisters at Malcolm X Park on Saturday, November 3 at 12 noon. Numerous speakers that represent our community’s demand for self-determination and our historical opposition to imperialist white power will expose the relentless war being waged against Africa, African people and the peoples of the world.
At 2 P.M. there will be a black people’s march on the White House. Then there will be another rally at Lafayette Park across the street from the White House.
On Sunday at 12 noon the people will gather for a conference at the Stuart Center, 821 Varnum Street NE for a full discussion of all these issues and resolutions of how we should move to defend ourselves against the war on our people in a process that will build a new world without black oppression and human exploitation.
Every day the blood-stained list of African people within the U.S. who are shot or killed by U.S. white citizens or police grows grotesquely long. In 47 of the cities with the largest police departments, police shot at least 3,649 African people from 2010 through 2016.
These same domestic military occupation forces are the primary instruments leading to the prisons within the U.S. bursting at the seams with African people who are now organizing within the prison concentration camps for an end to this colonial slavery that is justified by the 13th Amendment to the U.S. constitution.
Regular white citizens are also assaulting our people with sometimes deadly consequences—in churches, on college campuses, at public transportation stations and in fast food restaurants, to name just a few places.
In St. Louis-Ferguson, Missouri, with one of the highest incidences of police shootings in the U.S., the U.S. government, through the weapon of eminent domain, has confiscated nearly 100 acres of land previously owned by African people, to build a massive, $2 billion super-secret international spy station known as the National Geo-spatial Intelligence Station (NGA).
This spy agency, to have its own police force in our community, is also part of an ever-expanding gentrification process in St. Louis that is daily driving our people into deeper poverty and despair.
The Black is Back Coalition is also calling on you to join your brothers and sisters protesting the growing U.S. military secret wars in Africa.
Hundreds of U.S. Special Operation forces are violently destroying villages and supporting thuggish African governments to prevent African workers from coming to power and gaining control of our own resources for Africa’s benefit instead of the benefit of white power.
U.S. Special Operations forces are also in Africa to contend with China for economic influence. In addition, they are there to protect the interests of its junior imperialist partners on the Continent that contains at least a third of the world’s known mineral assets.
The U.S. has created a vast war project called the Africa Command or AFRICOM, a command center solely dedicated to keeping Africa under white power control and our people in a permanent state of violently impoverished exploitation and indirect colonial domination.
The Black is Back Coalition is calling on African people to join in our protest of U.S. initiated or actual armed and economic warfare against and political destabilization of other countries like the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Syria, Iran, Venezuela, Nicaragua, China and Russia—countries that have refused to comply with U.S. imperialist demands.
The Coalition’s 19-point National Black Political Agenda for Self-determination calls for an end to AFRICOM. It also demands that the U.S. get out of Africa, Asia and Latin America and pay reparations to Africa and Africans everywhere.
We demand the upliftment of African women and the African family as well as black community control of police and the immediate withdrawal of U.S. domestic military forces from the African community.
Come out to join with your brothers and sisters in the demand for the release of all our political prisoners and the end to the mass incarceration of our people and the release of African people from the colonial concentration camps called prison.
The escalated attack by the U.S. on Africa and African people worldwide is evidence of the growing crisis of imperialist white power. The Black is Back Coalition is calling on all African people and friends of peace to join with us in a great celebration of resistance.
We can win!
We will win!
We are winning!

Why the need to mobilize?

Because of idiots like this.


This is who Trump is afraid of. The reason more troops are on the border now than currently in Iraq. LOOK.








Debra Messing 'discovers' Iraq.  How very Columbus of her.  She discovers it to complain that more US troops are on the US border than in Iraq.  She's upset that there are not more US troops in Iraq.  15 years and counting of ongoing war and Debra is upset that more US troops are not in Iraq.

To Debra, this passes for 'logic.'  Because, to Debra, continued and never-ending war -- hell, war period -- is a-okay and normal.  War period?  Debra Messing didn't speak out about the Iraq War.  It was even a joke on WILL & GRACE.  Debra's character protested not getting free noodles.  That she protested.  She said good people have to care and it was all a joke that she didn't care about war.

That's what the world is up against, selfish bitches who don't give a damn about people dying.  The only time people matter to the Debra Messings is when they can be used for political football.  So, to attack Donald Trump, Debra suddenly 'discovers' the Iraq War.  She's fine with it.  She doesn't protest it.  She doesn't even call for an end to it.  She's glad it's there because it allows her to use it for political football.

Shame on anyone who buys into her crap.

You can call out what Donald Trump is doing without seeking to justify war.

Otherwise, you're just the ridiculous Jim Sciuotto who only mentions Iraq to either endorse it so he can whine about the march or to endorse it so he can whine about the fact that, in two years of being president, Donald Trump has not visited Iraq.  (For those who've forgotten, in eight years as president, Barack Obama only visited Iraq once.)

The wars are nothing but political props that the Jims and Debras grab on to repeatedly to try to political football.  The fact that people are dying doesn't matter to them.  Like the late Barbara Bush, they don't bother their 'beautiful minds' with such things.

Oh, look, here's another stupid bitch.

As Trump plays golf & holds rallies at the expense of taxpayers, he has the nerve to tell our servicemen and women that he can't visit them in Iraq or Afghanistan because he's "very busy". These people are fighting for us! Trump is not! Trump doesn't care!
 
 





The US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan aren't fighting "for us."  They're fighting because the US government sent them there.  Why are they there?  Why are they still there?

Those are questions the world is asking but not questions that bother Tiny Ed because he's all about using war as a political football.  He's a con artist who defrauded people and the fact that he's part of the 'resistance' should scare any honest participant of that group.



They don't care what happens in Iraq.  They don't care about the people of Basra.


Political and civil authorities in ’s oil-rich region of revealed that activists are planning demonstrations again, in light of the suspension of parliamentary membership of a number of their lawmakers.
 
 



The protests are starting again.  Already, there's been a sit-in.  They were put on hold for the religious pilgrimage but they are returning.  Why?  Oil rich Basra produces so much wealth for the government of Iraq yet the people in Basra need jobs (the multi-nationals stealing oil from Iraq don't even try to pretend to employ a significant number of locals).  The people can't drink the water unless they want to be part of the over 100,000 so far that have been hospitalized for drinking the water.  They don't have regular electricity which was a nightmare in the oppressive heat of summer but will also be bad as winter arrives and temperatures drop.


Not only have these issues not been addressed, there's also the appearance -- on the part of Prime Minister Adel Abdul al-Mahdi -- that these issues are not pressing.

This appearance is upsetting politicians in Basra.

Who should use Dark Spot Corrector? Our Dark Spot Corrector is the appropriate treatment option for anyone looking to help fade the appearance of dark spots, regardless of age or gender. While we formulated our product with the highest quality, safe ingredients, every person's skin is unique so it is best to test the product on a different skin area to make sure you react well to the ingredients.

A different spot corrector actually made my dark spots MORE noticeable. Could this happen with your product? The reason many other products make your dark spots MORE noticeable is because they use harsh, potentially dangerous bleaching agents, which can seep into surrounding skin. This means that they can cause a white "ring" to form around the dark spot - which actually makes the spot "highlighted" and more obvious!

Our product won't cause this effect because it does not contain a bleaching agent. Active ingredients in Dark Spot Corrector work deep within the skin where dark spots start, to "break up" areas of hyperpigmentation and reduce melanin overproduction naturally.

How do I use Dark Spot Corrector? It should be used up to four times daily, depending on the color and size of your spots. Using a pea- or dime-sized amount, apply the treatment directly to your areas of hyperpigmentation. Because our skin's natural healing processes are most efficient at night, never forget to apply before bed!
https://5thavenuemd.com/spot-corrector

Other products I've tried gave me results at first, but then stopped working after a while. Will this happen with your product? The reason you may have experienced this with other products is because they may not have added enough of the active ingredients (usually to cut corners and save a buck), or they use harsh chemicals that cause an instant reaction but do not work in the long term. Instead, our formula is packed with ingredients that give you LASTING results, and the longer you use the product, the better results you'll experience.

Is it suitable for all skin types? Since our Dark Spot Corrector contains safe, natural ingredients that help regenerate your skin from the inside out, our unique formula can be used on every skin type without the risk of side effects. However, every person's skin is different, so results may vary.
https://5thavenuemd.com/spot-corrector

Can it be used on sensitive skin? Because our Dark Spot Corrector is formulated with natural, gentle ingredients, it is safe to use on even the most sensitive skin. However, those who know they have sensitive skin are always advised to use caution when using any new product for the first time.

How do I know it's working? We always recommend that our patients take a "before" picture prior to their first use. Take your "after" photo about a month later and you can see the results for yourself! Our patients have reported a reduction in the color and size of the hyper-pigmented area, but since every person's skin is unique, every person's experience is slightly different.

Does 5th Avenue Cosmeceuticals test on animals? Absolutely NOT. 5th Avenue Cosmeceuticals adheres strictly to cruelty-free, animal-friendly practices. REEF FRIENDLY. Made with Natural ingredients.

Other spot correctors I've tried smell horrible, like chemicals. Does yours? Many other spot correctors smell like harsh chemicals because they're MADE with horrible chemicals. We, on the other hand, spent years actively searching for the most powerful natural ingredients in the world that can achieve the same (or even better) results as those harsh chemicals, without any of the risk or danger. Because ours is more natural, you won't experience the "ink" or "Clorox" smells so many other products have. Ours smells very lightly of plum and honey, due to its inclusion of the powerful Kakadu plum.

I have oily, acne-prone skin. Will Dark Spot Corrector clog my pores or cause breakouts? Many products have a heavy cream base that makes skin feel oily and greasy. Instead, ours has a light gel base that dries quickly and absorbs into the layers of the epidermis - instead of sitting on top of your skin and clogging pores. This makes it ideal to use before makeup application or before applying your daily SPF moisturizer.

I have very dry skin. Will Dark Spot Corrector irritate my skin or cause flaking like other products I've tried? The ingr
