          Oakland Raiders 2018/19 Week 08      Cache   Translate Page      


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



Oakland Raiders - Indianapolis Colts 28:42

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

Jamal Murray had a huge 48 performance in last night's win over the Celtics. 50 has a nicer ring to it, so Murray launched a shot at the buzzer instead of letting the clock run out, which is the unwritten NBA rule.



Kyrie Iriving was none too pleased, but he also was just trying to give the ball what it deserved. The NBA today apparently disagreed with Kyrie.



Honestly if it was Kyrie with 48, I wouldn't mind him having shot it either. Give the fans a 50 point experience as well. Not everyone was as upset with Murray as Kyrie:



Kyrie will now only make $20,074,189 on the year after the $25k deduction. GoFundMe page soon to come.

          Clergy sex abuse on the rise again, and church leaders are ignoring why, sociologist says      Cache   Translate Page

Denver, Colo., Nov 2, 2018 / 03:13 pm (CNA).- After years in decline, Catholic clergy sex abuse could be on the rise again, warns a professor-priest’s analysis of relevant data.

The professor’s report sees a rising trend in abuse, and argues that the evidence strongly suggests links between sexual abuse of minors and two factors: a disproportionate number of homosexual clergy, and the manifestation of a “homosexual subculture” in seminaries.

“The thing we’ve been told about the sex abuse is that it is somehow very rare and declined to almost nothing today is really not true,” Father D. Paul Sullins, a Catholic priest and retired Catholic University of America sociology professor, told a Nov. 2 press conference.

“I found that clergy sex abuse did drop to almost nothing after 2002, but then it started to creep up,” he continued. “It’s been increasing. And there are signs that the bishops or the dioceses have gotten complacent about that.”

“It’s not at the great heights that it was in the mid-1970s, but it’s rising. And it’s headed in that direction,” he added.

Clergy sex abuse incidence is today about one third as common as in the late 1980s. While sex abuse by clergy is “much lower” than 30 years ago, it has not declined “as much as is commonly thought.” Most of the decline since the 1990s is consistent with “a similar general decline in child sex abuse in America since that time,” Sullins’ report said.

The decline is not necessarily related to measures taken by the U.S. bishops. Sullins told the press conference he saw no link between a decline in abuse and the implementation of the U.S. bishops’ 2002 Charter for the Protection of Children and Young Adults.

“Recent experience calls into question whether the current understanding of the nature of the abuse and how to reduce it is accurate or sufficient,” said Sullins in his report.

Efforts to address clergy abuse must acknowledge both “the recent increase of abuse amid growing complacency” and the “very strong probability” that the surge in abuse in past and present is “a product, at least in part, of the past surge and present concentration of homosexual men in the Catholic priesthood.”

The report was released Nov. 2 by the Louisiana-based Ruth Institute, where Sullins is a senior research associate. It has been reviewed by several scholars, including four social scientists, and is planned to be included in an upcoming book.

His study aimed to address a common question: is the sex abuse related in any way to homosexual men in the priesthood?

“I hear on the one hand denial of that, almost without even thinking about it, and I also hear advocacy of that, almost without even thinking about it,” Sullins said Nov. 2. “The question comes up logically because the vast majority of victims were boys. Usually in sex abuse of minors, two-thirds of victims are girls.”




Sullins’ report is titled “Is Catholic clergy sex abuse related to homosexual priests?” and he does not avoid the sometimes controversial question. The report compares “previously unexamined measures of the share of homosexual Catholic priests” and the incidence and victim gender of minor sex abuse victims by Catholic priests from 1950 to 2001.

Sullins’ sources included a 2002 survey of 1,854 priests by the Los Angeles Times that included questions about respondents’ sexual orientation, age, year of ordination, and whether they thought there was a homosexual subculture in their seminary. He measured abuse using data provided by the authors of the John Jay College of Criminal Justice reports, which themselves used reports of abuse provided by Catholic dioceses.

“Although over 8 in 10 of victims have been boys, the idea that the abuse is related to homosexual men in the priesthood has not been widely accepted by Church leaders,” said Sullins.

“(T)he data show that more homosexual men in the priesthood was correlated with more overall abuse and more boys abused compared to girls,” he added.

The increase or decrease in the percent of male victims correlated “almost perfectly” with the increase or decrease of homosexual men in the priesthood, he said, citing a 0.98 correlation. While the correlation was lower among victims under age 8, it was “lower but still strong,” 0.77. The statistical association between homosexual priests and abuse incidence was “extremely strong,” given that this scale ranges from -1.0, an inverse correlation, to 1.0, an absolute positive correlation.

Such results were “as close as you can get to a perfect correlation as I have ever seen,” Sullins said Nov. 2, adding that researchers usually consider correlation association above 0.3 or 0.4 to be a strong effect.

He took care to say it is the disproportionate presence of homosexual men in the priesthood, not the simple presence of any homosexual men, that appears to be the major factor.

“What I say in the paper is that when homosexual men were represented in the priesthood at about the same rate as they were in the population, there was no measurable problem of child sex abuse,” Sullins said. “It was only when you had a preponderance of homosexual men.”

The percentage of homosexual men in the general population is estimated at two percent. In the 1950s, homosexual men in the priesthood were about twice their percentage in the general population, making up four percent. in the 1980s they were eight times the percentage in the general population, 16 percent, according to Sullins.

“When you get up to 16 percent of priests that are homosexual, and you’ve got eight times the proportion of homosexuals as you do in the general population, it’s as if the priesthood becomes a particularly welcoming and enabling and encouraging population for homosexual activity and behavior,” he said Nov. 2.

Sullins was clear he wanted to avoid recommending any particular action based on his research.

“I would certainly not recommend that we remove all homosexuals from the priesthood,” he said. “The reason for that is: the abuse is not necessarily related to someone’s sexual orientation.” He cited his knowledge of men with same-sex attraction who are “strong, faithful persons,” adding “I would hate to have some sort of litmus test for that.”

If the Catholic Church in the U.S. were like most institutions, where two-thirds of abuse victims were female, people would reject the suggestion to eliminate all heterosexual men from the priesthood. That suggestion would be an “ideological reaction,” he said.

He suggested the priesthood should reflect the general population, as a sign priests are selected for “holiness and commitment to Christ and the things that we would hope would make for a good priest.”

“When you start to get a larger proportion of homosexuals It looks like you are actually selecting for same-sex orientation,” he said.

Seminary candidates have reported about the problems this disproportion creates, he continued. According to Sullins, Donald Cozzens' 2000 book “The Changing Face of the Priesthood” discusses accounts of homosexual students being so prevalent at some seminaries that heterosexual men felt destabilized and disoriented and left.

“That’s not a positive outcome. I do not think we would want to have that proportion of a homosexual culture in the priesthood,” said Sullins.

There appear to be verifiable trends in increases and decreases in the ordinations of homosexual priests.

“From 1965 to 1995 an average of at least one in five priests ordained annually were homosexual, a concentration which drove the overall proportion of homosexual men in the priesthood up to 16 percent, or one in six priests, by the late 1990s,” said Sullins’ report.

“This trend was strongly correlated with increasing child sex abuse,” he said.

Drawing on his findings, Sullins predicted that if the proportion of homosexual priests remained at the 1950s level “at least 12,000 fewer children, mostly boys, would have suffered abuse,” he said. As a percentage, this means abuse would have been about 85 percent lower.

The presence of homosexual subcultures in seminaries, as reported by priests considering their own seminary life, accounts for about half the incidence of abuse, but apparently not among heterosexual men.

“Homosexual subcultures encouraged greater abuse, but not by heterosexual men, just by homosexual men,” Sullins said Nov. 2. He suggested these subcultures encourage those who may have been attracted to male victims to act out more than would have been the case otherwise.

Sullins, a former Episcopal priest, has been married for 30 years and has three children. He was ordained to the Catholic priesthood in 2002 by then-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Washington.

“I was surprised and shocked, like most of us earlier this year, to hear about Cardinal McCarrick,” Sullins said. “I was particularly impressed by that because I was ordained by Cardinal McCarrick in 2002, and probably knew him better than most people would have.”

His report follows the June revelations that former Archbishop McCarrick was credibly abused of sex assault on a minor, revelations which prompted men to come forward saying he had sexually abused them as seminarians—and prompted Pope Francis to accept the archbishop’s almost unprecedented resignation from the cardinalate. McCarrick was deeply influential and had been a leading personality in the U.S. bishops’ response to the 2002 scandals.

In August, a Pennsylvania grand jury released its report on Catholic clergy sex abuse in six dioceses. It tallied over 1,000 credible accusations against hundreds of priests over decades, though many of these accusations had been reported in 2004.

“What was new in 2018 was not primarily the revelation of abuse by priests, but of a possible pattern of resistance, minimization, enablement and secrecy—a ‘cover-up’—on the part of bishops,” said Sullins, who used some of the grand jury report data for his study.

As part of the U.S. bishops’ response to the first sex abuse scandal in 2002, the John Jay College of Criminal Justice issued two bishop-commissioned reports: a 2004 report on the nature and scope of clergy sex abuse and a 2011 report on the causes and context of sex abuse.

Sullins criticized the 2011 report’s claim that sex abuse perpetrators are mainly “situational or opportunistic” and the sex of the victim is less relevant to them. In his view, multiple offenders “abused a higher proportion of male victims than did single offenders, and the proportion increased with higher numbers of victims.” If multiple offenders were better at acquiring victims, “they appear to have used their skills to obtain access to more boys, not fewer.”

Abuse of girls dropped off at the same rate in the 1980s and 1990s, and the data suggest that as girls became more prevalent in priestly life, such as in the introduction of altar girls, abusers of boys “responded to the presence of fewer younger boys primarily by turning to older boys, not to female victims.”

For clergy offenders who were “classic or fixated pedophiles,” targeting only victims under age eight, they still strongly preferred male victims, “conditional on higher proportions of homosexual men in the priesthood.”

Sex abuse by Catholic clergy is “substantially less” than in similar institutions or communities, but it is notable that underage victims of sex assault by Catholic priests in U.S. Catholic parishes and schools have been “overwhelmingly male,” said Sullins. Comparable reports in Germany indicate that up to 90 percent of abuse victims of Catholic clergy have been male, compared to about half of victims in Protestant or non-religious settings in that country.

Some Catholic commentators have blamed clericalism for the abuse. Pope Francis’ August 20 letter on sex abuse, which did not mention homosexuality, said communities where sexual abuse and “the abuse of power and conscience” have taken place are characterized by efforts to reduce the Catholic faithful to “small elites” or otherwise replace, silence or ignore them.

“To say ‘no’ to abuse is to say an emphatic ‘no’ to all forms of clericalism,” the Pope said.

In a May 21, 2018 audience with Italian bishops, the Pope said it is better not to let seminary candidates enter if they have “even the slightest doubt” about the fitness of individuals with homosexual “deep-seated tendencies” or who practice “homosexual acts,” but want to enter the seminary.

These acts or deep-seated tendencies can lead to scandals and can compromise the life of the seminary, as well as the man himself and his future priesthood, he said, according to Vatican Insider.

A 2016 document from the Vatican’s Congregation for Clergy, “The Gift of the Priestly Vocation,” cites a 2005 Vatican document which says: “the Church, while profoundly respecting the persons in question, cannot admit to the seminary or to holy orders those who practice homosexuality, present deep-seated homosexual tendencies or support the so-called ‘gay culture’.”

The bishops’ 2002 child protection charter drew criticism from Sullins. Its failure to acknowledge that bishops can commit abuse or cover up abuse “seemed to confirm the suggestion of a cover-up: indeed, to the extent bishops may have covered up priestly misbehavior, the charter itself may have covered up episcopal misbehavior.”

He faulted the 2011 John Jay report on the causes and context of clergy sex abuse, which said that a reported increase in homosexual men in seminaries in the 1980s did not correspond to the number of boys abused. Sullins noted that the authors acknowledged they did not collect or examine direct data on priests’ sexual identity and any changes in it over the years. They relied on “subjective clinical estimates and second-hand narrative reports of apparent homosexual activity in seminaries,” Sullins said.

The Ruth Institute, which published Sullins’ report, was founded in 2008 by Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, an economics-trained author and writer on marriage, family and human sexuality. She served as spokesperson for Proposition 8, the California ballot measure which defined marriage as a union of one man and one woman. The institute was backed by the National Organization for Marriage Education Fund until 2013.

Groups including the Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, and the Southern Poverty Law Center have criticized the Ruth Institute’s stance against same-sex marriage and other LGBT causes.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which originally monitored foes of the civil rights movement, in the 1980s began tracking neo-Nazi groups and Ku Klux Klan affiliates. In recent years it has listed mainstream groups like the Ruth Institute, the Family Research Council and Alliance Defending Freedom as “hate groups” for their “anti-LGBT” stance.

In an Aug. 23, 2017 response to the listing, the Ruth Institute said it “categorically condemns white supremacy, racism, Nazism, and all violent totalitarian political movements.”

“People who cannot defend their positions using reason and evidence resort to name-calling to change the subject away from their anemic arguments,” the institute said. “The ‘hate group’ label is a club such people invented to bludgeon their political opponents.”

Nearly Dan’s 12 members (who’ve played with Ray Charles, the Four Tops, the Temptations, Gladys Knight, and, most importantly, Huey Lewis) are up to the task, interpreting the hits and deep cuts with a professionalism that would impress Donald Fagen and the late Walter Becker’s accountants.

Mehr als 170 Jahre nach der Eröffnung des ersten Streckenabschnittes auf österreichischem Boden hat die Eisenbahn nichts von ihrer Faszination verloren. Der Film aus der Reihe "Auf den Schienen des Doppeladlers" zeigt, wie es zur Entstehung des gigantischen Bahnnetzes der Donaumonarchie gekommen ist und welche bautechnischen Leistungen vollbracht wurden, um die Steppen Galiziens mit den Küsten der Adria zu verbinden. Beleuchtet werden auch die vielfältigen Folgen des Bahnbaues: sei es die Entstehung der Sommerfrische in den verschiedensten Regionen, die Vereinheitlichung der Zeit oder die enorme Bedeutung der Eisenbahn für das Militär und die Kriegsführung. Die Bahn ist für Millionen Menschen weltweit zur Passion und Leidenschaft geworden. Unvergleichlich größer und fundamentaler muss dieses Erlebnis wohl für die Menschen im Österreich der Donaumonarchie gewesen sein. Chronisten aus dieser Zeit verglichen das Aufkommen der Eisenbahn mit der Entdeckung Amerikas oder dem Buchdruck. Entlang der historischen Bahnstrecken der ehemaligen Donaumonarchie führt die Reihe "Auf den Schienen des Doppeladlers" zu den bedeutendsten Orten und in die entlegensten Winkel des einstigen Habsburgerreiches, die durch die Eisenbahn verbunden waren und sind. Es waren die Eisenbahnen, die das weite Reich mit Leben erfüllten, Menschen und Waren zirkulieren ließen und so zum Florieren von Handel, Industrie und Fremdenverkehr entscheidend beitrugen.

Die 1884 eröffnete "Arlbergbahn" schloss Vorarlberg ans Bahnnetz an. Die einst als "k.k. privilegierte Kaiserin-Elisabeth-Bahn" bezeichnete heutige "Westbahn" führt von Wien nach München. Es war eine bautechnische Meisterleistung, Schienenstränge auf Tausenden Kilometern zwischen Sümpfen und Schluchten, Steppe und Meer zu verlegen, die ein ganzes Reich zusammenhielten: Österreich-Ungarn. Mit dem Ersten Weltkrieg versank die Donaumonarchie. Chronisten von damals verglichen das Aufkommen der Eisenbahn mit der Entdeckung Amerikas oder dem Buchdruck. Doch auch wenn sie ihre Vormachtstellung längst verloren hat, ist die Bahn noch immer ein wichtiger Mobilitätsfaktor. Und jenseits des alltäglichen Gebrauchs entfacht das Thema "Eisenbahn" bei Millionen von Menschen auf der ganzen Welt große Leidenschaft. Entlang der historischen Bahnstrecken der ehemaligen Donaumonarchie führt die Reihe "Auf den Schienen des Doppeladlers" zu den bedeutendsten Orten und in die entlegensten Winkel des einstigen Habsburgerreiches, die durch die Eisenbahn verbunden waren und sind.

          17:35 Auf den Schienen des Doppeladlers - Von den Alpen - an die Adria      Cache   Translate Page      
Im Jahr 1900 wurde in Österreich-Ungarn ein riesiges Alpenbahn-Bauprogramm gestartet: die Transalpina. Der Film aus der Reihe "Auf den Schienen des Doppeladlers" beleuchtet das Mammutrojekt. Die Errichtung von gleich fünf Bahnstrecken wurde dabei in Angriff genommen: die Pyhrnbahn, die Tauernbahn, die Karawankenbahn, die Wocheinerbahn und die Karstbahn. Der Ausbau sollte die Integration des Seehafens Triest ins österreichische Bahnnetz fördern. Dahinter steckte auch militärisches Kalkül: Triest war neben Pola ein wichtiger Marinestützpunkt der Donaumonarchie. Man nannte die Hafenstadt auch "Klein Wien am Meer". Vieles dort erinnert noch heute an die Zeit, als Österreich am Meer lag. Von den damals errichteten fünf Alpenbahnen, konnte nur die Tauernbahn ihre Bedeutung als prosperierenden Nord-Süd-Alpentransversale halten. Die Tauernbahn gilt aufgrund der kühnen Trassenführung und zahlreicher Tunnel und Brücken im gebirgigen Gelände als herausragende Ingenieursleistung. Entlang der historischen Bahnstrecken der ehemaligen Donaumonarchie führt die Reihe "Auf den Schienen des Doppeladlers" zu den bedeutendsten Orten und in die entlegensten Winkel des einstigen Habsburgerreiches, die durch die Eisenbahn verbunden waren und sind.

How to Protect Your Automotive Assets before an Accident Happens

Taking steps to protect your car before an accident occurs are important. This will allow you to limit the amount of liability that you have in regards to a potential accident. Here are some of the ways that you can protect yourself and your car before an accident can occur.Practice Defensive DrivingDefensive driving skills are essential if you want to be able to avoid an accident. This means that you’re constantly on the lookout for where other vehicles are on the road. Defensive driving means that you always leave yourself an out. Keep the appropriate amount of space between yourself and other cars at all times. You’ll also need to slow down a little bit in inclement weather. Having the time that’s required to stop in time will help to prevent you from being in an accident.Install a Backup CameraSome of the worst accidents are those that were preventable if you took a few minutes to look around outside of your car before driving away. For example, backup cameras are required in new cars because children were being hit in their own driveways by family members. If your car doesn’t have a backup camera, you can install one so that you can prevent this type of accident from occurring. It will also help with those fender benders in store parking lots.Invest in InsuranceAuto insurance is another way to ensure that your vehicle is protected in the event of an accident. Collision, liability, and comprehensive are the types of auto insurance that you can have on your car. These will protect your assets from being depleted if you were to be involved in an accident. It would also allow you to be able to have your car repaired so that you could get back to driving it.Keep up on MaintenanceMaintenance is important so that you can keep your car road worthy. You don’t want to break down on the side of the road or while driving and be involved in an accident. Maintenance includes regular tune-ups so that you can keep your car on the road for years to come. Tire wear is another consideration when it comes to keeping you safe. Tire rotation and replacing your worn out tires will protect your car.You don’t want to be involved in an accident that was preventable by taking these steps. Be prepared so that you avoid an accident before it has a chance to occur.See More

          HALIFAX STADIUM BECOMING POLITICAL FOOTBALL      Cache   Translate Page      
HALIFAX - A group of professional sports executives quarterbacking a plan to bring a Canadian Football League team to Halifax is set to make an announcement Wednesday as it ramps up efforts to secure a conditional expansion franchise.

But the critical question - how to fund a new stadium - will likely remain unanswered.

"To make a pro sports franchise work you must have a place to play, it's just that simple,'' CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie said, noting that the expansion team's prospects hinge on a suitable stadium being built in Atlantic Canada's largest city.

Critics call public subsidies for stadiums "sports welfare'' for wealthy owners, with limited public benefits; supporters say it is money well spent to create jobs, boost the economy and generate civic pride.

Maritime Football Limited Partnership, made up of former owners of the NHL's Arizona Coyotes and the head of a moving company, cleared a major hurdle last month after Halifax council voted for city staff to do a through business case study on the proposal for a CFL team.

The group says next steps include launching a name-the-team contest and a season-ticket campaign to gauge local enthusiasm - and more importantly whether people will open their wallets for football.

But the biggest obstacle to securing the league's 10th franchise is building a new 24,000-seat stadium.

The partners behind the bid have proposed Shannon Park, vacant land on the east side of Halifax harbour, as the stadium site, and say the $170-million to $190-million project would need public money.

Fans of the CFL bid say a professional sports team would give the community a sense of civic pride, cementing Halifax's status as a first-tier city.

They say investing in a stadium would have a positive economic impact on the region, creating jobs, spurring economic growth and generating tax dollars.

"There is optimism that we can do this as long as everybody is at the table, understanding what the shared risk is,'' Anthony LeBlanc, a former Coyotes co-owner and one of the three founding partners of Maritime Football, told reporters after council's decision to move forward.

He made it clear that while the group could shoulder the cost of the stadium's operations, construction costs would require public funds.

"I don't see how we can continue with a stadium proposal that does not involve at least (the Halifax municipality) and the province, if not the federal government.''

Opponents of publicly funding a stadium point to stacks of research showing that new sports facilities have negligible effects on the economy.

Leading sports economists have found there is almost no evidence that professional sports franchises and facilities have a measurable impact on the economy, with profits largely going to corporate owners, professional sports leagues and athletes.

"Such facilities generate little new revenue for the region, they simply take recreational spending that previously goes to other purposes,'' Bruce Kidd, a University of Toronto kinesiology and physical education professor and former Olympian, says in an email.

"It will be difficult for anyone to make a sound business case, i.e., that it will add to overall regional GDP, let alone ever make enough to pay back the subsidies.''

Still, sports facilities and professional teams can yield benefits to a community, says Liesl Gambold.

The Dalhousie University social anthropology professor and "huge sports fan'' grew up watching NFL football _ her father coached for the Denver Broncos and the Houston Oilers.

"If Halifax wants to claim its position as the most cosmopolitan city east of Montreal, this would be part of that,'' she says, noting that the football team would complement Halifax's robust culture and music scene.

"It's about being part of something bigger than just Maritime culture that spans the country.''

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

Sunday Early

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sunday Late

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sunday Night

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

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

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

Monday Night

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

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

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

          LA Clippers push women's empowerment with dating app deal      Cache   Translate Page      

In the era of #MeToo a dating app has teamed up with a high-profile sports team to "shake up" a predominantly male-driven industry.

In March, the Los Angeles Clippers broke ground by signing a reported three-year $20 million sponsorship deal with "female empowerment" dating app Bumble, where women initiate contact with men.

The partnership launched with a #strongerwithher campaign at a Clippers game -- encouraging fans to honor women who impact their lives.

"There is a lot of fear that women are having in a time that women should have a voice, and having men who support that is incredibly important for us as women," Alex Williamson, Bumble's chief brand officer, told CNN Sport.

"That's what we're trying to do. I think the ripple effects of that are very powerful. It's really important to showcase the good guys," according to Williamson.

The Clippers -- who hired Gillian Zucker as president of business operations in 2014, one of a small but growing number of women in the top ranks of US sports -- are keen to promote their equality-driven message through the deal.

"This is a female empowerment brand and you are putting that brand on a men's sport's league jersey," Clippers' chief global partnerships officer Scott Sonnenberg told CNN sport. "That in itself is a story."

The deal places the dating app's logo as a patch on the Clippers' uniform, but extends beyond just that, according to Sonnenberg,

"With Bumble we have core values that are alike," he says, noting that the companies have worked on mentorship programs and creative programs for women in Los Angeles.

Although Bumble is best known for its dating app, it also features platforms for forming business contacts and friendships.

"We just thought it was a natural fit to open a partnership together for a common goal," added Sonnenberg.

'We don't focus on the Lakers'

Sonnenberg, who is responsible for building relationships with corporate sponsors, recently moved to the Clippers after 14 years with the Chicago Bulls, a team that consistently led the NBA in home attendance.

He was attracted by the chance to work for Clippers owner and Microsoft CEO Steve Balmer.

"Steve Balmer wants to be the first at everything," he says. "(He is) constantly pushing the envelope and challenging his executive team to do more and be better, and that is the kind of leader I was interested to learn from."

Sonnenberg will have his work cut out.

The Clippers' fan base has ebbed and flowed in its fourth decade in Los Angeles -- save for superfan Clipper Darrell -- and trading away Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan along with Blake Griffin over the past two seasons leaves the team without a single marquee player.

Meanwhile, their arena-mates at the Staples Center, the Los Angeles Lakers, acquired megastar LeBron James. How can the Clippers compete with that?

"Having a superstar in Los Angeles is not foreign," Sonnenberg says. "We don't focus at all on what the Lakers are doing, they are a great brand and a great organization.

"It's certainly challenging, there are a lot of professional teams in LA and that makes it difficult to stand out for us."

To help strengthen their identity the Clippers plan to build their own arena in the Inglewood section of Los Angeles.

"Steve (Balmer) has been very vocal about that," adds Sonnenberg. "Part of building our fan base is having our own home."

So far, the Clippers are still "exploring the possibility" of building the arena, which would open after its lease at the Staples Center expires in six years.

In the meantime, the Clippers, who missed the playoffs last season, need to put together a competitive team, Sonnenberg admits.

"With (experienced NBA executive) Jerry West and (coach) Doc Rivers and (basketball operations head) Lawrence Frank at the helm, we feel like we have the right people in place to help bring a championship team to LA," he says.

He cites the team's salary cap flexibility to sign free agents who come available after this season as something for Clippers fans to look forward to.

"We're more focused on what we're trying to do, and what we're trying to do is build a championship caliber team," he says.

          My Father Sings . . . Back Home Again      Cache   Translate Page      
My dad has been singing this song throughout the week. Today, in just a few more hours, he will be home even in the skilled nursing facility because my mother will be back at his side.

She has always been his refuge. This beautiful, bright, well-spoken, classy woman who could see a shining side of him not always visible to others. 

In addition to his rural roots, my dad also had a stutter.  Has, I guess, though we forget it.  It is so much a part of his uber-competent self. He's written in his life history about a time they had a difference of opinion. He was holding forth, criticizing someone my mom was defending, but he got caught in a verbal block.  And my mom just listened. Then, when he had gotten his words out, she said in her droll way, "That's easy for you to say."

She had won his heart entirely.

College had not been all roses for my dad, even after all his effort to get there. After pneumonia his last quarter of high school, the doctors had told him he'd have to postpone going to the university until his lung sealed back up. At the last possible minute, he did heal and was declared good to go. But once he got there, many girls didn't want to go out a second time with him when they found out he hadn't served a mission. He hadn't served a mission because of his stutter, though he'd petitioned all the way up to the top, even sitting down with Elder Delbert L. Stapley, a cousin of my dad's grandmother, to try somehow talk the powers that be into allowing him to go. As far as his studies, my dad couldn't decide between engineering, history and teaching, or speech therapy. And only after a year of general education and speech therapy classes, Dad decided speech therapy was the way to go

In those days, to register for a class, you stood in line in front of the table where the class you wanted had piled up cards for each available seat.  My dad finally got to the front of the line at the table in front of his speech therapist professor who asked him what he was doing there, "Wouldn't that be a case of the blind leading the blind? I think you should look for something else to do."

My dad walked away, heartsick, sat down against the wall and put his head in his hands, praying for some door to open, some way to seem clear. He wrote later,

As I was sitting there, a man about thirty years old came and stood by my chair and introduced himself as Mark Percival. He said that he had overheard my conversation with Dr. Morley and had noticed that I might be in need of help.  He mentioned that he also had a stuttering problem and that he wanted to help me. He asked me if I had other interests besides speech therapy and I told him that I had considered mechanical engineering. He got a surprised look on his face and told me that he was a new graduate assistant in the Mechanical Engineering Department and was going to be teaching beginning classes.  He took me over to the mechanical engineering desk and helped me register for classes. It was a direct and almost instant answer to my prayers and I am forever grateful for Mr. Mark Percival.

But even after choosing a major, Dad faced professors who told him he'd never be able to succeed as an engineer because of his stutter.  His prospective in-laws told their daughter his stutter was probably a sign of mental instability.

Once when first married, my mom fell ill with the flu and suggested Dad go over to the Dairy Queen across the street and get a hamburger instead for his dinner.  A couple of young guys behind him in line got impatient with the time Dad took to order and purposely jostled his tray after he'd paid, spilling the milkshake onto his sandwich. They began to mock him with play stutters, jiving and egging each other on until my dad just wanted to haul off and punch them. Instead, my dad, my competent, confident, capable, clever, economical father, just dropped his already-paid-for  meal there on the floor and walked out.

He went straight to my mother's arms, sobbing like he'd never cried before. She just held him, telling him over and over, "It's going to be all right. It's going to be all right."

This song, now and all through my childhood, my dad sings soulfully, wholeheartedly to my mother, even if she's still miles away for another hour or two.


* * *





There's a storm across the valley, clouds are rollin' in.
The afternoon is heavy on his shoulders. 
There's a truck out on the four lane, a mile or more away.
The whinin' of his wheels just makes it colder.
He's an hour away from ridin' on your prayers up in the sky.
And ten days on the road are barely gone.
There's a fire softly burning. Supper's on the stove.
But it's the light in your eyes that makes him warm.
Hey, it's good to be back home again.
Sometimes this old farm feels like a long lost friend.
Yes, and hey,  it's good to be back home again.
There's all the news to tell him, how did you spend your time?
And what's the latest thing the neighbors say.
And your mother called last Friday, sunshine made her cry.
And you felt the baby move just yesterday.
Yes, and hey, it's good to be back home again. Yes, it is.
Sometimes this old farm feels like a long lost friend
Yes, and hey it's good to be back home again
And oh, the time that I can lay this tired old body down
And feel your fingers feather soft on me
The kisses that I live for, the love that lights my way,
The happiness that livin' with you brings me.
It's the sweetest thing I know of, just spending time with you.
It's the little things that make a house a home,
Like a fire softly burning and supper on the stove,
The light in your eyes that makes me warm.
Hey, it's good to be back home again.
Sometimes this old farm feels like a long lost friend.
Yes, and hey, it's good to be back home again.
Hey, it's good to be back home again, you know it is.
Sometimes this old farm feels like a long lost friend.
Hey, it's good to be back home again.
I said, hey, it's good to be back home again.

From Ian:

The Future of the Pittsburgh Synagogue Massacre
In America, Jews have always been able to fight back against anti-Semitism freely. Never having received their emancipation as an “award” (which was the case in Europe), Jews have had no fears of losing it. Instead, from the beginning, they made full use of their freedom, especially freedom of speech. As early as 1784, a “Jew Broker,” probably the famed Revolutionary-era Jewish bond dealer, Haym Salomon, responded publicly and forcefully to the anti-Semitic charges of a prominent Quaker lawyer, not hesitating to remind him that his “own religious sectary” could also form ”very proper subjects of criticism and animadversion.” A few years later, Christian missionaries and their supporters faced Jewish polemics no less strident in tone. Where European Jews often prided themselves on their ”forbearance” in the face of attack, Rabbi Isaac Mayer Wise, the great Reform Jewish leader, once boasted that he was a “malicious, biting, pugnacious, challenging, and mocking monster of the pen.” In more recent times, Jewish defense organizations have taken on anyone who maligned Jews, including national heroes like Henry Ford and General George S. Patton, as well as presidents of the United States.

American anti-Semitism has always had to compete with other forms of animus. Racism, nativism, anti-Quakerism, Anglophobia, Islamophobia, anti-Catholicism, anti-Masonry, anti-Mormonism, anti-Orientalism, , anti-Teutonism—these and other waves of hatred have periodically swept over the American landscape, scarring and battering citizens. Americans have long been extraordinarily pluralistic in their hatreds. Precisely because the objects of hatred have been so varied, hatred has generally been diffused. No one outgroup experiences the full brunt of national odium. Furthermore, most Americans retain bitter memories of days past when they or their ancestors were themselves the objects of malevolence. The American strain of anti-Semitism is thus less potent than its European counterpart, and it faces a larger number of natural competitors. To reach epidemic proportions, it must first crowd out a vast number of contending hatreds.

Anti-Semitism is more foreign to American ideals than to European ones. The central documents of the Republic assure Jews of liberty; its first president, in his famous letter to the Jews of Newport, conferred upon them his blessing. The fact that anti-Semitism can properly be branded “un-American,” although no protection in the formal sense—the nation has betrayed its ideals innumerable times including in our own day—still grants Jews a measure of protection. Elsewhere anti-Semites could always claim legitimacy stemming from times past when the Volk ruled and Jews knew their place. Americans could point to nothing even remotely similar to that in their own past.

America’s religious tradition—what has been called “the great tradition of the American churches”—is inhospitable to anti-Semitism. Religious freedom and diversity, church-state separation, denominationalism, and voluntarism, the key components of this tradition, militate against the kinds of us-them dichotomies (“Germans and Jews,” “Poles and Jews,” etc.) so common in Europe. In America, where religious pluralism rules supreme, there has never been a single national church from which Jews stand apart. People speak instead of American Protestants, American Catholics, American Jews, American Muslims, and American Buddhists—implying, at least as an ideal, that all faiths stand equal in the eyes of the law.

American politics resists anti-Semitism. In a two-party system where close elections are the rule, neither party can long afford to alienate any major bloc of voters—another reason why it is so critical that everyone take the time and trouble to actually vote. For the most part, the politics of hatred have been confined to nonvoters like African Americans, until they won the vote, or to nonvoting immigrants, or to noisy third parties like the anti-Catholic Know Nothings in the 19th century, or to single-issue fringe groups. America’s most successful politicians, now and in the past, have more commonly sought support from respectable elements across the political spectrum. Appeals to national unity, even in the era of Donald Trump, win more elections than appeals to narrow provincialism or to bigotry.

Of course, the fact that America has been “exceptional” in relation to Jews should not obscure the sad reality that there has always been anti-Semitism in America, as well as violence directed against other minority faiths. That history, as I read it, gives cause neither for undue celebration nor for undue alarm.

Alan Dershowitz on Trump, Israel, and Antisemitism
I recently spoke with Alan Dershowitz at the ZOA Gala at the Marriott Marquis in Manhattan, where he was set to make a prominent speech.

Below is an edited transcript of our conversation.

Hannah Grossman: Mr. Dershowitz, can you give us a little preview of what you will be talking about tonight?

Alan Dershowitz: I’m talking about how important it is to have dialogue among people who may not agree. Mort Klein and I don’t agree about a great many things. He’s way to the right of me, but we talk to each other. We dialogue with each other. And I’m here to promote dialogue between the right, the left, [and] the center — not only within the Jewish community, but the more general political community. It’s a tragedy that we now shout at each other, demonize each other, [and] yell slogans instead of having reasoned discourse. We can learn from each other, and I think we ought to.

HG: Where do you think that changed, between the right and left, where the divide became so extreme that it seems that it is impossible to have some dialogue or commonality?

AD: Well, I think there a lot of contributing factors. I think the movement of the left to the hard left in the Democratic Party. I think the movement of the right to the hard right within the Republican Party. I don’t think President Trump has helped with his choice of language, and I don’t think that some of the Democrats have helped with their choice of language. I crave the old days when my friends Ted Kennedy and Orrin Hatch could sit together, and when Senator McCain could sit and work together with Joe Biden. Those days seem long gone, and I want to do everything in my power to bring them back.

HG: Bret Stephens said today at a panel that Donald Trump’s rhetoric has an effect on the culture. Can you describe that; what you think that is?

AD: I think that’s right. Look, I think President Trump has a mixed record. I think he’s done some very good things. Moving the embassy to Jerusalem was a terrific thing. I think his tough negotiating stance toward Iran has been very good. I don’t approve of his policies toward immigration. I certainly don’t approve of separating families the way he did early on, but you know, I’ve never agreed with anything any president did 100 percent.

I disagreed with a great deal of what President Obama did and if Hillary Clinton had been elected, I’m sure I would’ve disagreed with a lot of what she would do. But you don’t demonize, and he’s still the president, and you respect the office of the president. I was appalled at the so-called leaders in Pittsburgh who refused to welcome the president. I think everybody should welcome the president when there’s a tragedy and allow him to serve in his role as a mourner or bereaver-in-chief.
Qanta Ahmed: The ECHR’s ruling on defaming Mohammed is bad news for Muslims
In a monumental irony, the ECHR’s agreement with an Austrian court that offensive comments about the Prophet Mohammed were ‘beyond the permissible limits of an objective debate’ has handed a big victory to both Islamists and Islamophobes – while infantilising believing Muslims everywhere.

The case concerns an unnamed Austrian woman who held a number of seminars during which she portrayed the Prophet as a paedophile. After she was convicted by an Austrian court of ‘disparaging religion’ (and fined nearly €500), she appealed to the ECHR claiming the punishment breached her right to free expression. The court disagreed.

As a practising Muslim, I find this notion – that the Prophet was a paedophile – to be as abhorrent and nasty as they come; not to mention completely false. Yet I could not disagree more with the ECHR’s ruling.

For a start, it implies there is somehow a balance to be struck between people’s freedom of expression and the right of Muslims not to be offended. I just don’t understand this: how can the views of another individual possibly affect my faith or beliefs? Her ignorance – or anyone else’s for that matter – does not equate to my persecution.



Ben Shapiro: Voting for Democrats Isn’t Going to Curb Anti-Semitism
Trump is not the source of the true threats to Jews — anti-Semites are more prominent on the left than the right.

Over the weekend, Bari Weiss, a friend who writes for the New York Times, appeared on Bill Maher’s HBO show. Bari was bat mitzvahed at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh; she knew many of those who were shot and killed by a white supremacist two weeks ago. Her writing on the subject has been beautiful; she’s obviously both raw and real about the situation.

On Maher’s show, she made a number of good points about anti-Semitism more broadly and its rising threat both in the United States and across the world. But then she concluded with this calculation:

One thing that I think was made stark this week is that there are many Jews, including Jews that I know, who have liked many of Trump’s policies regarding Israel and the Middle East . . . but I hope this week that American Jews have woken up to the price of that bargain. They have traded policies that they like for the values that have sustained the Jewish people and frankly, this country, for forever. Welcoming the stranger, dignity for all human beings, equality under the law, respect for dissent, love of truth, these are the things we are losing under this president, and no policy is worth that price.

I have a number of problems with this statement.

To start, the part with which I agree: There’s no justification for Trump’s callous disregard for the truth, which I’ve criticized routinely. Nor is there justification for Trump’s treatment of the alt-Right from 2015 to 2017.

But Bari is wrong in two areas: First, she suggests that Trump presents a unique threat to Jews and Jewish values that outweighs the threat to Jews from other arenas; second, she links Judaism with her preferred immigration policies.
On Bari Weiss, Franklin Foer and the Values that Sustain Our People
So, for Jews who are appalled by Trump’s incendiary rhetoric but who still appreciate his policies on Israel, what should they do? Tell the president not to bother trying to “woo” us with Israel? That he so violates Jewish values that his favorable actions on Israel just aren’t worth it? That after Pittsburgh, we’re no longer willing to pay the price of that bargain?

And how would that work exactly? Weiss didn’t specify, but Franklin Foer, writing in the Atlantic, did have a suggestion to enhance Jewish security after Pittsburgh:

“Any strategy for enhancing the security of American Jewry should involve shunning Trump’s Jewish enablers. Their money should be refused, their presence in synagogues not welcome. They have placed their community in danger.”

Never mind that after Pittsburgh, the President said: “Anti-Semitism represents one of the ugliest and darkest features of human history. Anti-Semitism must be condemned anywhere and everywhere. There must be no tolerance for it.”

According to Foer, however, any Jew who still supports the president must be ostracized and shunned.

I wonder if Foer would be willing to stand outside a synagogue on Saturday morning with a sign repeating his message: “If you support Trump, your presence is not welcome. You have placed your community in danger.”
Amb. Alan Baker: After the Pittsburgh Synagogue Massacre, It’s Time to Adopt an International Convention on the Crime of Anti-Semitism
This proposal comprises the following unique elements, tailored to deal with anti-Semitism:
  • detailed preambular paragraphs documenting the history of anti-Semitism and recalling references to it in international instruments, in statements by senior international figures, and in relevant resolutions of international bodies;
  • an all-embracing definition of the crime of anti-Semitism and its component elements, based upon the various definitions adopted over the past years by various groups and institutions;
  • criminalization of manifestations of anti-Semitism that result in or are intended to result in violence;
  • action by countries to criminalize anti-Semitism in their own domestic law and to prosecute or extradite perpetrators;
  • international cooperation and exchange information on perpetrators and actions taken;
  • establishment by states of appropriate national educational programs to combat anti-Semitism;
  • establishment of an International Anti-Semitism Monitoring Forum for monitoring and coordinating actions by states and international organizations.
With the evident support of the UN Secretary-General and the challenge he placed before the international community, this proposal should be brought before the appropriate UN legal bodies for consideration, with a view to its being studied, amended, and accepted as an international treaty, criminalizing and punishing anti-Semitism.
It’s the antisemitism, stupid
In the aftermath of the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre, two things are irrefutable: There are 11 dead innocent Jews and there is one hateful murderer. All else, as they say, is commentary.

The murderer is a classic antisemite of the most despicable sort. Regardless of the political contours of his warped mind, he believes one thing is certain: Jews have no right to live.

Sadly, this horror has brought forth a spate of finger pointing where people are looking to score political points by somehow attributing the deed to those they politically oppose.

This is harmful and wrong. If you want to look behind the curtain, beyond just the actions of the murderer, then you must conclude that the perpetrator here is antisemitism itself – a hatred that enables its adherents to blame anything and everything on Jews, attributing to them all the paranoid delusions that the irrationally hateful suffer from.

I have spent the last two years immersed in American college campuses helping to make the existential case for Israel. I have encountered not just rejection of Israel’s legitimacy, but the most vile Jew-hatred, over and over again, with little pushback from decent people.

There is a big distinction between free speech and moral conduct. I understand and support the right to voice your opinion, no matter how much I might disagree with it. But I also know that free speech cannot be the rationale for not calling out vile and hateful accusations.
An International View of the Pittsburgh Murders
The killing of 11 Jews at an American synagogue has now inserted itself into a sequence of other murders targeting Jews and their institutions in past decades.

Among the list of murders of Jews outside of Israel, the most lethal tragedy took place in South America in 1984. In the bombing of the AMIA building in Buenos Aires, Argentina, 85 people were killed. The largest terrorist murder aimed at Jews in Africa was the 2002 bombing of the Israeli-owned Paradise Hotel in Mombassa, Kenya, where 13 people were killed. In Europe, two of the most deadly attacks against a Jewish target took place at the Goldenberg restaurant in Paris, where six people were murdered in 1982 — and in a 2012 terrorist attack on a bus transporting Israelis near the Burgas airport in Bulgaria, where another six people were killed.

There is one major difference between the murders of Jews in the US and the three other continents. In Pittsburgh, the murderer was a white supremacist. In the other attacks, the perpetrators were Muslims. Even a superficial look at mega-antisemitism in the world shows that antisemitism coming out of parts of the Muslim world is currently the greatest threat to the Jewish people. Only there does one find heads of state who promote extreme hatred not only against Israel, but also against Jews. Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamed, for instance, has a long record of verbally attacking all Jews. There is nothing similar among heads of state in much of the Western world.

Liberalism and democracy by necessity overlap to a substantial extent. But they are not identical. France and Germany have learned from their pasts. Both limit hate speech. In Germany, one can spend a number of years in jail for insulting a part of the population. Many Europeans understand that the principle of free speech doesn’t mean that hate speech should also be tolerated.
Israel Plays an Important Role in Fighting Antisemitism
Today, everybody agrees that combating “cyber-hate,” including antisemitism and anti-Zionism, is a top priority. Israel’s Justice Ministry even has a department dedicated to the fight against online incitement. And the Global Forum Against Anti-Semitism, now under the auspices of the Israeli foreign affairs and diaspora ministries, is tackling Christian theological antisemitism, Holocaust revisionism, Palestinian denial of Jewish history, campus antisemitism, legislative assaults on Jewish practices like ritual slaughter and circumcision, and even antisemitism in sports.

Some experts warn that, unless the rising tide of hate crimes in the US is turned back, American Jewry will have to undergo a process of adopting European-style security measures. Synagogues and Jewish community centers in the United States may need to be protected from neo-Nazis, just as synagogues and Jewish community centers in Europe are protected from radical Islamists.

This means the adding of multilayered defenses to Jewish sites, including security screening with armed guards, surveillance systems, panic rooms, and sterile zones. If this is the unfortunate fate of American Jewish institutional life (I hope not), Israeli security expertise undoubtedly will prove helpful.

In the meantime, Israeli and Diaspora Jews should band together to draw strength from solidarity, jointly combat hate, and raise the flag of unafraid and vibrant Jewish life everywhere. Keep partisan politics out of it.
Democrats’ Deputy Comms Director Laughs About Rising Anti-Semitism in America
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's deputy communications director laughed about charges of anti-Semitism and the growing racism in America that many observers have pinned on a Democratic Party that is increasingly lurching leftwards.

Patrick Burgwinkle‏, a deputy communications director at the DCCC, responded to a tweet decrying the rise of anti-Semitism in America—which has appeared back on the radar in recent days after controversial National Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan took a trip to Iran and led chants of "Death to America"—by responding, "lol," an acronym for "laughing out loud."

The initial tweet, sent by veteran Congressional staffer Matt Wolking, decried the rise of anti-Semitism and included a link to a Slate article claiming, "The story of the midterms is about how Americans will respond to racism, bigotry, and hate."

"So true," Wolking wrote. "The racism endorsed and tolerated by the Farrakhan Democrats, the bigotry the establishment media exhibits against half the country, and the hatred of Christians, conservatives, and men smeared by the radical left as rubes and rapists."

The DCCC's Burgwinkle, in response to that tweet, wrote, "lol," raising eyebrows among some observers.
Pope Francis: A Christian cannot be an anti-Semite
Pope Francis lamented anti-Semitic attacks and remarked that “a Christian cannot be an anti-Semite” during an audience with Jewish emissaries on Monday.

The pope received four first time delegates of the World Congress of Mountain Jews at the Vatican.

Two weeks after the attack on a Pittsburgh synagogue that killed 11 worshipers Francis said in a statement: “Sadly, anti-Semitic attitudes are also present in our own times,” during his meeting with the emissaries of the Mountain Jews, the descendants of Jews who left ancient Persia and settled in the Caucasus.

“A Christian cannot be an anti-Semite; we share the same roots. It would be a contradiction of faith and life. Rather, we are called to commit ourselves to ensure anti-Semitism is banned from the human community,” he said.

The day after the Pittsburgh attack, the head of the Catholic Church said in his weekly prayers that “all of us are wounded by this inhuman act of violence.”
Trump yet to appoint traditional envoys amid antisemitism crisis
In the wake of a mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, last weekend, White House officials debated who they should send to the grief-stricken town as a representative of the administration.

Their choice was not obvious. The administration has, for two years, declined to appoint traditional envoys to the fight against antisemitism here and around the globe, despite calls from Jewish organizations and a bipartisan group in Congress to do so.

US President Donald Trump has tapped neither a White House Jewish liaison, a post that has been responsible for communicating with the American Jewish community since the 1970s, nor a special envoy at the State Department to monitor and combat antisemitism, a congressionally-mandated position devoted to the fight against antisemitism overseas.

Administration officials instead chose to send Jason Greenblatt, the president's chief envoy for international negotiations, who– while an observant Orthodox Jew and an adviser on Jewish world issues to Trump during the campaign– has neither studied the issue nor spent his time at the White House engaging in outreach with the wider diaspora community.

White House officials tell The Jerusalem Post that in lieu of a formal liaison the president relies on decades-old relationships with Greenblatt and other close advisers, such as his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, for guidance on Israel policy and Jewish world concerns.
Why Linda Sarsour’s Denunciation of Pittsburgh Shooter is Meaningless
On the last Saturday in October, Robert Bowers shot and killed eleven members of the Pittsburgh Jewish community, physically injured six other people, including law enforcement officers, and created distress and turmoil for the entire American Jewish community. He’s been indicted in federal court on 44 counts, and may face the death penalty.

Bowers killed eleven Jews solely due to his annihilationist anti-Semitism, which was of the neo-Nazi variety. He provided a political cover – he wrote that he didn’t like the political positions held by some other Jews (not the ones he killed), who support certain immigration policies in this country. But as Alana Newhouse noted in Tablet Magazine, the truth was simply that “he had reached the end point of a brain-eating disease called anti-Semitism.”

One day after these brutal murders, Linda Sarsour once again put herself in the spotlight. She did so while attempting to portray herself as a defender of Jews.

While Sarsour denounced Bowers, she has, in the past, embraced a different unrepentant killer of Jews, Rasmeah Odeh.

Many of us, by now, may have forgotten about Odeh. However, just over a year ago she was deported from the United States, after admitting that she lied on her citizenship application. Odeh also killed two Jews, Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner, who were students at Israel’s Hebrew University in 1969. She was convicted in a trial that was observed and deemed fair by the International Committee of the Red Cross.


Shmuley Boteach: No Holds Barred: Will Clinton, Schumer, Booker finally condemn Farrakhan?
Throughout history, antisemites of all stripes have sought to cast the Jews as something utterly worthless yet massively destructive. It was a way of making the act of killing a Jew something that was not only necessary but meaningless. Hitler’s SS troops, therefore, were able to exterminate tens of thousands of Jews in a day. You see, they were killing an infestation, not people.

It may be extreme to compare Farrakhan to Hitler. But he did it himself. During a radio interview, Farrakhan acknowledged the fact. “[T]he Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler.” Instead of rebuffing the comparison, he embraced it. “That’s a good name,” he said, “Hitler was a very great man.” He then reinforced it. “[Hitler] raised Germany up from nothing,” he explained, adding, “In a sense, you could say there’s a similarity in that we are raising our people up from nothing.” He’s also used the Holocaust as a metaphor to describe what awaited the Jews in hell. My late friend Christopher Hitchens personally heard Farrakhan punctuate a tirade against Jews with this: “And don’t you forget, when it’s God who puts you in the ovens, it’s forever!”

The only question that remains is this: how could leading political figures like Bill Clinton have agreed to legitimize such genocidal hate by recently appearing on the same stage as Farrakhan at Aretha Franklin’s funeral? And given the unfortunate association, why didn’t Clinton immediately condemn Farrakhan’s genocidal Jewish reference?

Just days before his “termites” slur, Farrakhan announced the release of a new music album made in collaboration with some of the most powerful men in music, including Stevie Wonder, Rick Ross, Snoop Dogg and Common. At least seven members of Congress — including Maxine Waters, Barbara Lee, Danny Davis, Andre Carson, Gregory Meeks, Al Green and most famously, DNC whip Keith Ellison, have all sat down for personal meetings with Farrakhan while representing the American people in Congress. Farrakhan even attended a 2005 meeting of the Black Congressional Caucus. At that meeting, former president Barack Obama even smiled for a photograph with Farrakhan just three years before becoming president.

American Jews need to draw a line.

It is not only neo-Nazis that need to be condemned by Republicans. It is Farrakhan and his ilk who should be repudiated utterly by Democrats. Never again must mean exactly that: Never Again.
‘Ocasio-Cortez in a Scarf’
He [Denver Riggleman] views this as a big advantage over Cockburn, a former journalist who has treated Virginia's 5th more like a research project, telling The Intercept she spent three months investigating the district before announcing her run.

"I'm Virginian to the core," he said. "She lives in Georgetown and doesn't have a clue what's happening in the 5th district."

He thinks the media have left a lot of ground uncovered on his opponent.

"Her books are used by Stormfront and white anarchist groups to explain why the Jewish people are trying to take over," he said, referencing the anti-Semitic book Cockburn wrote with her British-born husband Andrew Cockburn. "That got less attention than jokes about Big Foot."

Riggleman read her book and said it was shocking. "She really believes that Israel has orchestrated a cabal to control U.S. foreign policy."

He described Cockburn as "Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a scarf," saying she's run a far-left campaign calling for "Medicare for all, open borders, forgiveness of student debt, and free college."
PreOccupiedTerritory: J Street Vows Investigation After Endorsed Candidate Makes Pro-Israel Statement (satire)
A progressive political advocacy group calling itself “pro-Israel, pro-peace” promised today to get to the bottom of an emerging scandal, in which a politician the group supports in this week’s elections was recorded agreeing that the Jewish State has an unequivocal right to exist, defend itself, and determine its own character, organization sources reported today.

J Street executive director Jeremy Ben-Ami issued a statement to the organization’s donors and employees Tuesday acknowledging that Mike Rotch, a Democratic Congressional candidate running for office in California, had signed a petition circulating in the aftermath of the Pittsburgh synagogue shootings two weekends ago, that called on American public officials to denounce antisemitism, including delegitimization of Israel.

“It has come to our attention that Mike Rotch may support Israel in ways that do not reflect the values of this organization,” the statement began. “We have made it clear on several occasions that our mission requires paying only lip-service to a secure Israel, while in reality pursuing an outcome that effectively destroys Israel as a Jewish State. If the reports of Mr. Rotch’s remarks are accurate, they call into question his suitability as a candidate for the sixty-ninth Congressional District. J Street will conduct a full investigation of Mike Rotch and then make its recommendations.”
Conspiracy theorist selected as Labour candidate in safe ward
It’s pretty shocking that cases like this no longer even seem surprising. But the views of Liam Moore are so outrageous I thought this latest example of Labour’s failure to deal with antisemitism warranted a post. Moore, who is an evangelical vicar (and part-time Phil Collins tribune act) has been selected as the Labour councillor candidate for Norris Green in Liverpool – close to Luciana Berger’s constituency. In 2014 he tweeted that “Rothschilds Zionist run Israel and world governments” and earlier this year compared Zionists – or simply those worried about antisemitism – to Judas:

‘We are seeing a very English right wing Zionist coup mate and sadly the Labour Party is infiltrated by sellouts who would sacrifice a labour government for their 30 pieces of silver.’

Sometimes, when challenged over antisemitism, Labour supporters point out that the number of cases identified reflects only a tiny proportion of the membership. But the real problem isn’t that a few members hold such vile views, but that they are able to spout them without being reported and dealt with by others, and are even, as in this case, thought suitable for elected office.


University investigates professor who claims Israel was behind 9/11 Twin Towers attacks 'with help from Zionists in US government'
Sussex University is investigating a professor after he claimed Israel were behind the September 11 attacks 'with help from Zionists in the US government'.

Professor Kees van der Pijl, the former head of its international relations department, used as his source an article entitled '9-11/Israel did it' by conspiracy theory site Wiki Spooks, which also claims Al-Qaeda is a front for Mossad, the Israeli spy service.

The retired academic, who was responding to an article criticising US sanctions on Iran, was immediately inundated with a storm of mocking tweets, including one that joked, 'Yes, and Bruce Lee was the first man on the moon, damn media!'

Sussex University said it is aware of the post and has not yet decided whether to take further action.

Van der Pijl tweet was posted on November 3 and read: 'Not Saudis, Israelis blew up Twin Towers with help from Zionists in US gov.'
Professor: BDS Panel at University of Michigan Was an ‘Unrelentingly Anti-Israel Propaganda Fete’
A professor at the University of Michigan said a recent panel hosted by the school on the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign was “a totally one-sided propaganda fete.”

Victor Lieberman, who teaches a popular history course on the Arab-Israeli conflict, said he was one of some 70 people who attended last week’s “Teach-In Town Hall,” which was organized by U-M’s Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies (CMENAS) after the university sanctioned a BDS-supporting professor who denied a letter of recommendation to a student who sought to study in Israel.

CMENAS director Samer Mahdy Ali said the event, which was backed financially by multiple U-M departments, would include a “decidedly pro-BDS” panel, followed by a discussion.

Lieberman estimated that less than two dozen undergraduates showed up on Monday morning, two days after a gunman killed 11 worshippers at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh while shouting antisemitic epithets.
Regev demands Spanish minister intervene in water polo BDS fracas
Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev demanded from her Spanish counterpart to move a women’s water polo match between Israel and Spain back to its original venue, after Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions activists had forced its relocation.

“The BDS movements are clearly antisemitic in nature and operate to harm the State of Israel and its citizens,” Regev wrote. “It is my expectation that the government of Spain will take all the necessary steps in order to reverse the decision of the Municipality of Molins de Rei.”

Planned demonstrations by Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions activists led the municipality, just outside Barcelona, where the match was scheduled to take place, to move the game to a different venue and bar supporters.

Regev said Israel expected the organizers to “operate in accordance with the International Olympic Charter, [to] enable all sportsmen to compete as equals in the games.”

As of Tuesday noon, it was still unclear where the game would take place, if at all. Some sources reported that the game was canceled, but a PR company working on behalf of the Culture and Sport Ministry said the game was still on, in a new venue, with supporters banned. The ministry was still working to reverse the decision, the company said.

NGO Monitor, a Jerusalem-based watchdog that analyzes and reports on international NGO activity in regards to Israel, said the decision by the Spanish municipality came as no surprise, as funding of anti-Israel groups by the Catalonian government are no rarity.
Sky News Arabia report on Druze elections in Golan is riddled with distortions and falsehoods
The six falsehoods in the report are as follows:
Falsehood #1: “Israeli elections were forced upon the residents.”

Sky reports without challenge the claim from the Syrian government’s official news service (SANA) that the Israeli government forced elections upon residents of the Druze towns. In fact, the impetus for the elections elections was the effort of group of Druze residents of the Golan who fought in Israeli courts for the change of policy. An article in the Israeli “Walla” website elaborates (CAMERA’s translation):

“During the past eighteen months, six Druze petitions were brought before the supreme court, opposing the way the town council members and heads were appointed [prior to 2018, Israel’s Interior Ministry appointed them], and demanding that open municipal elections be held in their communities as well,” lawyer Fahd Safdi from Mas’adeh tells Walla News. “At the same time we launched letters to the Interior Ministry and applied heavy pressure so it would enable us to exercise our right to vote.”

Falsehood #2: “The voter participation rate ranged from between 0% and 1.5%.”

According to official Israeli statistics (in Hebrew), the participation rate in Majdal Shams was 3.3 percent, and 1.3 percent in ‘Ein Qenya. In Mas’adeh and Buq’atha the participation rate was indeed 0 percent, but, as the report itself points out, this was because the election process was cancelled in advance.

Falsehood #3: Israel has been engaged in “Judaization” in the Golan.

“Judaization” (Tahweed in Arabic) is a vague term among Arabic speakers than can signify any increase of either the physical, metaphorical or imagined presence of Jews in a given place; it is often used in the context of Jerusalem. This includes but is not limited to: Scholars searching for archeological findings in the Old City and its surroundings, visitors walking peacefully around the Temple Mount compound, or even a Christian individual trying to set the Al-Aqsa mosque on fire. The question of what “Judaization attempts” the report is alluding to goes unanswered. In 51 years of Israeli control, the construction of Jewish villages in the Golan Heights has rarely faced Druze opposition of any kind. Moreover, how a democratic process initiated by Druze, in which both the voters and the candidates are Druze, can be labeled “Judaization” is a mystery.
French Police Investigating Violent Assaults on Two Young Jews in Paris in Single Week
Two separate assaults on Jewish teenagers in the Paris area during the last week are being investigated by police as hate crimes, French news outlets reported on Monday.

The first incident occurred last Tuesday in Sarcelles — about ten miles north of the capital. According to news magazine Le Point, a young schoolgirl wearing the uniform of the Jewish school that she attends was approached by an older man who spoke to her in Arabic before punching her hard in the back. The girl told police that her assailant had also mimed the action of shooting a gun at her with his fingers.

Traditionally the home of a large North African Jewish community, tensions have increased markedly in Sarcelles over the last decade between Jews and a growing Muslim population. The neighborhood was the site of a full scale antisemitic riot in July 2014, when 300 mainly Muslims youths looted Jewish-owned shops and attacked a synagogue during a solidarity protest with Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

A separate incident the following day was reported in the 19th arrondissement in northeastern Paris. A young man wearing a yarmulke was assaulted by three youths at a bus stop after he noticed that one of them was trying to pickpocket a laptop computer from his bag. After they spotted the young man’s yarmulke, the youths shouted antisemitic insults and pushed him to the ground, punching and kicking him as he fell.

Meanwhile, doctors, nurses, patients and other visitors to the Rothschild Hospital in Paris — named for the illustrious French-Jewish family — were greeted on Sunday morning with a lengthy antisemitic screed scrawled on one of the entrance walls.
Former Nazi SS concentration camp guard, 94, goes on trial in Germany
A 94-year-old former enlisted SS man went on trial Tuesday in Germany, charged with being an accessory to murder for crimes committed during the years he served as a guard at the Nazis’ Stutthof concentration camp.

Johann Rehbogen is accused of working as a guard at the camp east of Danzig, which is today the Polish city of Gdansk, from June 1942 to about the beginning of September 1944.

There is no evidence linking him to a specific crime, but more than 60,000 people were killed at Stutthof and prosecutors argue that as a guard, he was an accessory to at least hundreds of those deaths.

Stutthof prisoners were killed in a gas chamber, with deadly injections of gasoline or phenol directly to their hearts or shot, starved and even forced outside in winter without clothes until they died of exposure, prosecutor Andreas Brendel said.

The former SS Sturmmann, roughly equivalent to the US Army rank of specialist, does not deny serving in the camp during the war but has told investigators he was not aware of the killings and did not participate in them, Brendel said.
Doll that survived Holocaust goes on display at Yad Vashem
A doll called Inge that survived the looting during Kristallnacht in November 1938 was recently handed over to the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial and museum in Jerusalem by its owner and is now on display there.

Lore Mayerfield Stern, a Holocaust survivor from Kassel, Germany, was just 2 years old when the anti-Jewish riots known as Kristallnacht, the "Night of Broken Glass," caused massive destruction to Jewish property in her city and across Nazi Germany and Austria. During the pogrom, which took place on Nov. 9-10, 1938, at least 90 Jews were killed, 30,000 Jewish men were rounded up and sent to concentration camps, almost 300 synagogues were destroyed and thousands of Jewish homes and businesses were damaged or destroyed.

Inge, along with personal letters Stern had kept from that era, is now part of Yad Vashem's It Came From Within online exhibition, which marks the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht.

During Kristallnacht, Stern's father, Markus Stern, was one of the Jewish men arrested and was sent to Buchenwald concentration camp. Young Lore and her mother, Kaetchen, were taken in and hidden by neighbors, who kept them safe during the riots.

"Lore, already in pajamas, hid with her mother at the neighbors' house until the pogrom was over. When they returned home, they found that the place had been torn apart and was not habitable," Yad Vashem states on its website.
Hyundai venture arm invests in Israeli computer vision startup allegro.ai
The corporate venture arm of Hyundai Motor Company has made a strategic investment of an undisclosed amount into Israeli startup allegro.ai., a developer of computer vision technologies based on deep learning, the companies said in a joint statement on Monday.

The partnership with allegro.ai will allow Hyundai to “speed up deployment of AI technology in many business areas,” improving the quality of its products and creating “a safer driving environment,” Hyundai CRADLE and allegro.ai said.

Founded in 2016, allegro.ai offers software that simplifies the process of developing and managing solutions and products, such as autonomous vehicles, drones, security and logistics systems, that are powered by artificial intelligence and deep learning. The software also allows customers to update their devices and their learning capabilities while in use, so every device can continue to improve its operations.

“Deep learning computer vision is one of the core technologies that can be applied to autonomous driving to navigate roads and make quick decisions in real-time – and allegro.ai is clearly an innovation leader in that field,” said Ruby Chen, head of Investment at Hyundai CRADLE Tel Aviv.

“Our investment in allego.ai is a further step in enhancing our presence in the Israeli market, a global leader of technological innovation in the fields of automation, artificial intelligence and deep learning,” he said. “This is our fifth investment in an Israeli company and our activities will continue to grow the coming year.”
IsraellyCool: Pharrell Williams at FIDF Gala: “You Guys Show An Incredible Resilience”
A few days ago I posted about the FIDF Gala that saw celebrities help raise $60 million for Israel’s IDF. The incredibly talented Pharrell Williams was the musical act, but what I did not know at the time were the touching words he said about the Jewish people, in the wake of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting.

Providing entertainment was musical guest Pharrell Williams, who took a moment to share a few words about last week’s deadly shooting in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

“Look, what happened in that synagogue was incredibly cruel, it was wrong, and it’s not supposed to be what our nation is,” Williams said. “This group of people have been tested over and over and over again … but you guys show an incredible resilience.”


This makes me happy.
4,000 college students from 60 nations sing as one in TLV
Four thousand college students from 60 countries gathered in Tel Aviv in October for the latest mass singalong sponsored by the social music project, Koolulam.

The event, at Ganei Yehoshua, was attended by GA 2018 participants, graduates of MASA programs, MASA CEO Liran Avisar Ben Horin, Jewish Agency Chairman Yitzchak Herzog, Government Secretary Tzahi Braverman, and Masa Chairman Ilan Cohen.

Koolulam was founded with the goal of strengthening society through mass singing events in which large groups of non-professionals come together to create a collaborative happening.

The organization gathers as many as 12,000 people at a time from a broad spectrum of Israeli life, and then films the joint singing productions to share on social media.

In June this year, Jews, Muslims and Christians joined together at the Jerusalem Tower of David Museum to sing Bob Marley’s “One Love” in three languages as a show of unity from Israel. The video of the event went viral.


After 56 years of searching, IDF finds remains of pilot in Sea of Galilee
The Israeli military recently discovered the remains of a pilot, Lt. Yakir Naveh, who has been missing since his plane crashed into the Sea of Galilee 56 years ago, the army said Tuesday.

The remains were discovered on October 25 on the bottom of the Sea of Galilee, along with pieces of the aircraft.

Once they were found, the remains were sent to a forensic laboratory for identification, the army said.

The military’s Manpower Directorate informed the pilot’s family that his remains had been found, the army said.

His funeral was scheduled for November 13 at 3 p.m. at Tel Aviv’s Kiryat Shaul military cemetery.

On May 6, 1962, Naveh was training a cadet on a Fouga Magister when their plane got too low over the water and the engine cut out. The nose of the plane hit the water, sending them into a fierce spin, wing over wing.

A year later, a search team found the body of the cadet who had been flying the plane, Oded Kouton, but no trace of Naveh.

          The Rise of the TSP: Walled Gardens      Cache   Translate Page      

This piece very much confirms my thesis: transportation choices will be consolidated (and restricted) by ‘Transportation Service Providers”, in the hope that one or a few will emerge dominant, following the precedent of Telecommunication Service Providers like Telus, AT&T and eventually something Amazon-like. 

From Fast Company:

By David Zipper, a fellow at the German Marshall Fund

If you’re not a techie, you may not have come across the term “walled garden” before. But it’s a critical concept these days in technology business strategy–and it has the potential to fundamentally change the ways we travel throughout cities.

In essence, a walled garden is a closed technology platform that limits the information and options available to a user.  … You can find walled gardens in products ranging from e-readers (Amazon Kindle) to social media (Facebook) to various video game consoles. For the first time, the walled garden strategy is now being applied to urban transportation, with ride-hail giants Uber and Lyft racing to add new mobility modes to their apps.

In 2018, Uber has announced partnerships or acquisitions related to car sharing (Getaround), e-bike sharing (Jump), e-scooter share (Lime), and public transportation (Masabi). For its part, Lyft acquired public bike share operator Motivate, launched its own e-scooter share service, and has started building new integrations with public transportation into its app. The stakes are high; both companies–as well as China’s Didi Chuxing–want to evolve into walled gardens by providing trip planning and ticketing for any urban trip a commuter might desire. … .

Many U.S. transit agencies offer apps with trip planning and ticketing functionality, but no transit app allows users to also book a trip on ride hail. It’s doubtful that Uber or Lyft would ever allow that, since they want to own the customer relationship. They would much prefer to incorporate transit ticketing within the walled gardens of an Uber or Lyft app—and they are rapidly moving in that direction (see the partnerships mentioned earlier).

If public transportation becomes one of many services available within the Uber or Lyft app, that raises a number of thorny questions. Will disintermediated public transportation agencies receive data about when and why riders purchased tickets, which can then allow them to plan better service? Will they have to pay a commission when a rider books a ticket through an Uber or Lyft app, which would reduce their already declining operating revenues?

And perhaps most importantly, will Uber or Lyft design their apps to nudge people away from public transportation and toward their ride-hail service? …

Taking a step back, do cities want mobility companies to compete on the basis of the exclusive services only available within their walled garden? What if instead all mobility options were available on trip planning and ticketing platforms, allowing a commuter to consider her options and book any service she likes? Companies like Uber or Lyft could still build services like bike share and e-scooters into their apps, but they would compete based on the user interface and core quality of their service—not the extent to which they lock particular brands or modes inside their walled garden. …

In contrast to the broad platforms envisioned by MaaS’s boosters, Uber and Lyft want to use walled gardens to become their own platforms. That may be great for them, but it could lead to a worse customer experience (i.e., more walled gardens, each with limited mobility options, rather than accessing all services at once).

Is there an alternative to the emergence of urban mobility walled gardens? Yes. Governments could require that all mobility providers make their trip planning and ticketing data available for public integration (this is a strategy that Finland is starting to test). Any company can then establish a platform that brings together multiple modes into an app or subscription service. …

Do we want urban mobility companies to compete on the basis of the quality of their service, or is it okay for them to strategically lock certain services inside (or outside) their mobility platforms?

          Here are the results of the 25 most competitive House races in the 2018 midterm elections      Cache   Translate Page      

Texas Voting 2016

The 2018 midterm election results are coming in, and all eyes are on the battle playing out in the House of Representatives, which Democrats are forecasted to re-take.

FiveThirtyEight's deluxe House forecast, which includes everything from polls, district fundamentals, fundraising, candidate quality, gave the Democrats a 6 in 7 chance of taking back the House, predicting they would gain an average of 36 seats.

Their House model cast 13 contests as tossup, meaning both candidates had less than a 60% chance of winning, 14 as lean Democratic, and 7 as lean Republican.

Here's which parties and candidates are winning these highly competitive districts:

Kentucky's 6th district: Republican Andy Barr wins re-election with 50.9% of the vote compared to Democrat Amy McGrath 47.9%.

The candidates: Marine veteran Amy McGrath, the first woman to fly an F-18 fighter jet in the Marine Corps, launched a high-profile bid to unseat long-time Rep. Andy Barr.

Her race gained national attention after one of her campaign ads detailing the barriers she overcame as a woman in the Marines went viral, and she raised $6.9 million in individual donations compared to Barr's $2.5 million.

The district: The 6th occupies a large portion of central Kentucky, including the city and suburbs of Lexington. It's Cook Partisan Lean is R+9, and Trump carried the district by 15 points in 2016.

Predictions and polls: The race was rated as a pure toss-up by FiveThirtyEight on the day of the election. A Nov. 1-4 Siena College/NYT poll showed McGrath and Barr in a dead heat.

 



Virginia's 5th congressional district: Republican Denver Riggleman beats Democrat Leslie Cockburn 53% to 47%.

The candidates: Republican Denver Riggleman, a businessman and Air Force veteran, defeated Democratic candidate and former investigative journalist Leslie Cockburn in the open race for the fifth district.

The district: Virginia's 5th district occupies a large swatch of central Virginia, including the city of Charlottesville. Its Cook Political Rating is R+6. 

Predictions and polls: FiveThirtyEight rated the race in the 5th district lean Republican, giving Riggleman a 7 in 10 chance of winning. An Oct. 22-26 Siena College/NYT poll showed Cockburn leading Riggleman by one point.



Florida's 15th district: Republican Ross Spano defeats Democratic opponent Kristen Carlson 53% to 47%.

The candidates: After the district's Republican congressman decided not to run for re-election, State Representative Ross Spano won the primary to challenge former prosecutor and attorney Kristen Carlson. Carlson outraised Spano by more than a 3-to-1 margin.

The district: Florida's 15th district, created after a 2015 redistricting, includes several Tampa suburbs including Brandon and Lakeland, and stretches inland towards the city of Orlando.

Predictions and polls: FiveThirtyEight rated the race as lean Republican the day of the election, giving Spano a 5 in 8 chance of winning. An Oct. 16-19 Siena College/NYT poll showed Spano and Carlson in a dead heat, with 43% of voters expressing support for each.

(RNS) — Even in our present “golden age” of television, with the number of scripted programs on network, cable and streaming channels expected to top 500 this year, shows that feature religion or faith are scarce.

Rarer still are spiritually themed series that successfully find an audience, if not critical acclaim, amid the thrum of hundreds of other viewing options.

Photo courtesy of Jonathan Wenk/CBS Broadcasting Inc.Those shows seem to come along perhaps once a decade — “7th Heaven” in the 2000s, “Touched by an Angel” in the '90s, “Highway to Heaven” in the '80s, “The Flying Nun” in the late '60s through the early '70s.

Then this fall, the new CBS hourlong dramedy “God Friended Me” premiered to such impressive ratings that the network gave a full-season order for it after only three episodes. Its surprise success has caused some media watchers to wonder whether we’re on the cusp of a religion renaissance on the small screen.

“It’s cyclical,” said Jeffrey Mahan, a professor of religion and communication at Iliff School of Theology in Denver and author of “Media, Religion and Culture: An Introduction.” “It’s not random. We get them in response to something.”

After 9/11 came shows such as “Survivor,” “Fear Factor” and “Lost,” which reflected the existential crises and angst experienced by many Americans, said Craig Detweiler, president of the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology and author of several books about the intersection of faith and culture, including “A Matrix of Meanings: Finding God in Pop Culture.”

“Now we have so much existential dread generated by the fear industry that is network news and is thriving in the Trump era — they’re pushing that fear button every day — that we have shows that have to wrestle with despair and ultimate questions,” Detweiler said.

In “God Friended Me,” Brandon Micheal Hall plays an atheist who has his life turned upside down when he receives a friend request from God on social media. Photo courtesy of Jonathan Wenk/CBS Broadcasting Inc.In “God Friended Me,” Brandon Micheal Hall plays an atheist who has his life turned upside down when he receives a friend request from God on social media. Photo courtesy of Jonathan Wenk/CBS Broadcasting Inc.The wildly popular apocalyptic visions of “The Walking Dead,” for instance, are a “perfectly rational response” to what feels like a kill-or-be-killed era, Detweiler said. “Or the visions of the afterlife that started with a show like 'The Leftovers' on HBO and that continue with 'The Good Place' or 'Forever' in a more accessible way. The questions are still the same: Are we living in hell? Do things get better?”

In the face of societal anxiety, Mahan believes, TV shows that depict divine or supernatural intervention are a comfort. “The genre … says God is in his heaven and all’s right with the world, God is attentive, God is jerking people back from in front of the subway train, God has a partner for you,” he said.

Whether for dramatic or comedic effect (and with varying degrees of artistry and efficacy), in troubled times, mainstream television seems to experience an uptick in programs featuring celestial or superhuman beings interacting with humankind, or mere mortals wrestling with eternal conundrums.

Since the 2016 presidential election, for instance, shows such as “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World,” “Living Biblically” and “Lucifer” have come and gone from network television (although after Fox canceled "Lucifer" in May, Netflix has picked it up for a fourth season to air next year.)

Cable and myriad streaming channels have proffered grittier shows with spiritual themes and settings to slake an audience's thirst for metaphysical solace or intrigue, including “The Path” on Hulu, “The Leftovers” and “The Young Pope” on HBO, “Preacher” on AMC, “Call the Midwife” on PBS and “Greenleaf” on Oprah’s OWN network.

For the last decade or two, spiritual and religious content in mainstream television programming, while certainly remaining a minority, has run the genre gamut from the serious (“Big Love,” “Joan of Arcadia,” “Saving Grace”) to the silly (“Jane the Virgin,” “John from Cincinnati,” “Impastor,” “GCB,” “The O’Neals”) and the earnest-if-twee heavenly-hosts oeuvre (“Touched…” “Highway…” “7th…”).

Most never find an audience robust enough to keep them on the air for more than a season or two. But sometimes a dark-horse show appears in the right place at the right time.

Over at CBS this fall, God is having a moment.

“God Friended Me” chronicles the adventures of the atheist son of an Episcopal priest who’s dispatched by a Facebook user who goes by the handle “God” to rescue perfect strangers. The supporting cast includes Jewish, Hindu and Muslim characters. Its Sept. 30 debut earned a 1.4 Nielsen rating and drew 10.4 million viewers — noteworthy, particularly given the show’s subject matter: faith, doubt and the nature of the divine (if it does, in fact, exist).

It’s an unorthodox programming mix for mainstream TV, for sure, and it’s also one of the most highly rated new dramas on television.

For more nuanced and robust exploration of those themes, Mahan said he looks to popular shows that dip into the faith arena for an episode or two, or in the secondary story arc of a larger narrative.

Think of Kathryn Hahn’s character, Rabbi Raquel Fein, and the various Pfefferman family members’ wrestling with Judaism and the nature of faith itself in Amazon Studios’ "Transparent," or the earthy faith of Jenifer Lewis’ sassy grandmother character Ruby Johnson — “Black Jesus, Black Jesus!” — on ABC’s “Black-ish,” which dedicated a whole episode to the Johnson family’s experiences at a white hipster evangelical church.

Or the multi-seasonal storyline on “The Americans” when the teenage daughter of Russian spies living in Washington, D.C., rebels by becoming a born-again Christian and sharing the family secret with her youth pastor.

“I think we tend to get better episodic dealing with religion than we get from the shows that have a big commitment to proving that religion, particularly Christian religion, is good,” Mahan said.

What you rarely find are series that revolve around a religious community (although “Call the Midwife,” set in part among the nurse-midwives and members of an Anglican religious order in 1960s London, is a notable exception) or with a lead character or characters who are clergypersons or for whom faith is the grounding motivation for how they live.

The million-dollar question, then, is why not?

Nobody sets out to make a mediocre-rated show. It’s hard enough to do with shows that aren’t hampered by treacliness that is not in vogue.”

Shows that attempt to put a relentlessly positive spin on religion or faith in general will find it nearly impossible to find purchase in the era of “Under His Eye” and the dystopian nightmares of “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “American Horror Story: Apocalypse,” she said.

Jonathan Bock, founder and CEO of Grace Hill Media, which specializes in marketing faith-based content in film and television, places part of the blame for the dearth of artful, thoughtful spiritual content on TV on the audience itself.

“For the most part right now, American Christians like the world portrayed as it should be, not as it is,” Bock said. “That’s why you have a lot of 'Christian' movies where a nice person becomes nicer, and it works because it’s only 90 minutes.... But on television that’s hard to sustain” without sex, violence and moral quandaries that make some Christians uncomfortable.

They don’t want messy. They don’t want moral ambiguity. But what makes one group of the faithful nervous is precisely what most intrigues another.

“What I’d like to see is progressive religiosity that thinks that faith matters, that having a ritualized or a spiritual practice is sustaining in the midst of a life where God is not in control of everything and bad stuff happens,” Mahan said. “Whether there’s any kind market for a story like that is a whole other question.”

For a spiritually themed TV show to succeed, Piepenkotter said, it would need to go deeper than superficial niceties and be controversial. Ultimately, that is up to the people who create the character and the narrative.

“You have to find the writers who want to tell those stories and have the ability to tell them well, with multilayered characters, complex characters, relationships and execution,” she said. “I want to see what’s behind that curtain. I want to see a level of hypocrisy that I see from the outside looking in.… That’s probably a really interesting show.”

          Here are the results of the 25 most competitive House races in the 2018 midterm elections      Cache   Translate Page      

Texas Voting 2016

The 2018 midterm election results are coming in, and all eyes are on the battle playing out in the House of Representatives, which Democrats are forecasted to re-take.

FiveThirtyEight's deluxe House forecast, which includes everything from polls, district fundamentals, fundraising, candidate quality, gave the Democrats a 6 in 7 chance of taking back the House, predicting they would gain an average of 36 seats.

Their House model cast 13 contests as tossup, meaning both candidates had less than a 60% chance of winning, 14 as lean Democratic, and 7 as lean Republican.

Here's which parties and candidates are winning these highly competitive districts:

Kentucky's 6th district: Republican Andy Barr wins re-election with 50.9% of the vote compared to Democrat Amy McGrath 47.9%.

The candidates: Marine veteran Amy McGrath, the first woman to fly an F-18 fighter jet in the Marine Corps, launched a high-profile bid to unseat long-time Rep. Andy Barr.

Her race gained national attention after one of her campaign ads detailing the barriers she overcame as a woman in the Marines went viral, and she raised $6.9 million in individual donations compared to Barr's $2.5 million.

The district: The 6th occupies a large portion of central Kentucky, including the city and suburbs of Lexington. It's Cook Partisan Lean is R+9, and Trump carried the district by 15 points in 2016.

Predictions and polls: The race was rated as a pure toss-up by FiveThirtyEight on the day of the election. A Nov. 1-4 Siena College/NYT poll showed McGrath and Barr in a dead heat.

 



Virginia's 5th congressional district: Republican Denver Riggleman beats Democrat Leslie Cockburn 53% to 47%.

The candidates: Republican Denver Riggleman, a businessman and Air Force veteran, defeated Democratic candidate and former investigative journalist Leslie Cockburn in the open race for the fifth district.

The district: Virginia's 5th district occupies a large swatch of central Virginia, including the city of Charlottesville. Its Cook Political Rating is R+6. 

Predictions and polls: FiveThirtyEight rated the race in the 5th district lean Republican, giving Riggleman a 7 in 10 chance of winning. An Oct. 22-26 Siena College/NYT poll showed Cockburn leading Riggleman by one point.



Florida's 15th district: Republican Ross Spano defeats Democratic opponent Kristen Carlson 53% to 47%.

The candidates: After the district's Republican congressman decided not to run for re-election, State Representative Ross Spano won the primary to challenge former prosecutor and attorney Kristen Carlson. Carlson outraised Spano by more than a 3-to-1 margin.

The district: Florida's 15th district, created after a 2015 redistricting, includes several Tampa suburbs including Brandon and Lakeland, and stretches inland towards the city of Orlando.

Predictions and polls: FiveThirtyEight rated the race as lean Republican the day of the election, giving Spano a 5 in 8 chance of winning. An Oct. 16-19 Siena College/NYT poll showed Spano and Carlson in a dead heat, with 43% of voters expressing support for each.

00:15


Los demócratas han arrebatado por lo menos 23 escaños de la Cámara de Representantes a los republicanos, lo que los encamina a alcanzar los 218 que requieren para ser mayoría.

Los demócratas desbancaron a por lo menos 17 republicanos al ganar distritos moderados suburbanos de diversas partes del país, desde los suburbios de Washington, Nueva York y Filadelfia hasta las afueras de Miami, Chicago y Denver. Los resultados de la Costa Oeste aún no se anuncian.

Nancy Pelosi dijo a legisladores y simpatizantes demócratas que las elecciones son sobre el futuro, y agradeció “a todos ustedes por brindar un mejor futuro para todos los niños de Estados Unidos”.

Pelosi habló mientras los demócratas se encaminaban a obtener la mayoría en la Cámara de Representantes.

La líder demócrata dijo que las elecciones del martes eran más que sobre republicanos y demócratas. Eran sobre restaurar la Constitución y crear un contrapeso al gobierno de Trump.

Agregó que la elección era también sobre detener lo que describió como los ataques republicanos contra programas como la Ley de Cuidado de Salud Asequible. Dijo que los demócratas encontrarán coincidencias cuando puedan y que defenderán sus puntos de vista cuando sea necesario.

___

23:25

El presidente Donald Trump describió los resultados de las elecciones de mitad de periodo como un “éxito inmenso” debido a que los republicanos mantuvieron el control del Senado, aunque los demócratas obtuvieron algunas victorias importantes en la Cámara de Representantes.

El martes por la noche, Trump tuiteó: “Un éxito inmenso esta noche. ¡Gracias a todos!”.

El mandatario pasó la tarde observando los resultados en la Casa Blanca acompañado por su familia y amigos. Los días previos a las elecciones asistió a mítines de campaña, en un intento de impulsar a los republicanos que se postularon para el Senado.

Vicegobernador demócrata Gavin Newsom es elegido gobernador de California; vence al republicano John Cox.

El republicano Ron DeSantis será el próximo gobernador de Florida, luego de vencer el martes al demócrata Andrew Gillum.

El exlegislador de 40 años y oficial de la Marina recibió el apoyo del presidente Donald Trump, quien visitó el estado en dos ocasiones en los últimos seis días de campaña para ayudar a impulsar la participación de los votantes republicanos.

Gillum esperaba convertirse en el primer gobernador de raza negra de Florida. Reconoció su derrota la noche del lunes.

DeSantis no era considerado el favorito, hasta que Trump se involucró en las primarias republicanas y ayudó a DeSantis a conseguir la victoria sobre el comisionado de Agricultura Adam Putnam, quien era más conocido y estaba mejor financiado.

DeSantis perdió impulso tras su nominación, en particular después de decir que los votantes no deberían “hacer monadas” eligiendo a Gillum.

___

La demócrata Laura Kelly gana gubernatura de Kansas, que estaba en poder de los republicanos.

___
22:30


El senador republicano Ted Cruz venció al demócrata Beto O’Rourke para obtener su reelección en una contienda de Texas que atrajo mucha atención y que al principio parecía cosa cantada, pero que necesitó una visita del presidente Donald Trump para ayudar a impulsar al republicano.

Trump y Cruz fueron acérrimos rivales en 2016, pero el presidente visitó Houston hace unas semanas para apuntalar la victoria del senador.

___

La representante demócrata Michelle Lujan Grisham es electa gobernadora de Nuevo México.

___

El representante demócrata Tim Waltz es electo gobernador de Minnesota y vence al republicano Jeff Johnson.

___

Los demócratas están recuperando terreno en su lucha por el control de la Cámara de Representantes después de obtener escaños vitales en Florida, Pensilvania y Minnesota.

Los triunfos les dan a los demócratas una porción de los escaños que necesitarán para obtener control de la cámara baja. Han ganado dos escaños en Florida, desbancando a republicanos, y han ganado otros tres en Pensilvania, en donde un reordenamiento de los distritos ordenado por la corte dejó un terreno más favorable para los demócratas. También desbancaron a un republicano en Minnesota.

Los demócratas necesitan una ganancia neta de 23 escaños para controlar la Cámara de Representantes.

___

22:00


La demócrata Debbie Mucarsel-Powell venció al representante republicano Carlos Curbelo en la contienda por un escaño de Florida en la cámara baja federal.

Mucarsel-Powell es una inmigrante ecuatoriana que ha trabajado para varias organizaciones sin fines de lucro en el condado Miami-Dade. Sus propuestas incluyen prevención de la violencia y protección del medio ambiente, pero su principal enfoque es el sistema de salud y la Ley de Cuidado de Salud Asequible, la cual Curbelo prometió revocar.

Mucarsel-Powell retrató a Curbelo como un político que habla como moderado pero tiende a votar como conservador.

Curbelo es líder de la Bancada Climática y votó a favor de un impuesto sobre las emisiones de dióxido de carbono, un factor en el calentamiento global.

La demócrata Ayanna Pressley completó su lucha para convertirse en la primera negra de Massachusetts en ser elegida para ocupar un escaño en la cámara baja.

Pressley también es la primera afroamericana en ocupar un cargo en el Consejo Municipal de Boston. Transitó sin oposición en las elecciones legislativas del martes para el Congreso, dos meses después de desbancar al representante republicano Michael Capuano, quien lleva 10 periodos en el cargo, en unas primarias que causaron una gran sorpresa política a nivel nacional.

Si un republicano en la contienda en el distrito mayoritariamente demócrata, su victoria en las primarias le había asegurado un escaño en la Cámara de Representantes, con tan solo una posibilidad remota de una campaña por escrito para detenerla.

___

21:30


Los republicanos retuvieron las gubernaturas de Texas y Wyoming.

El gobernador de Texas Greg Abbott obtuvo un segundo periodo al vencer a la demócrata Lupe Valdez en una contienda en donde el resultado rara vez estuvo en duda.

En Wyoming, el tesorero estatal, el republicano Mark Gordon, ganó la elección de gobernador al derrotar a la demócrata Mary Throne. Gordon será sucesor del gobernador republicano Matt Mead, quien se mantuvo en el cargo desde 2011 y ya no es elegible a la reelección.

Los republicanos también controlan las cámaras legislativas en Texas y Wyoming, aunque los demócratas han intentado reducir la ventaja republicana en Texas.

Guam ha elegido por primera vez a una mujer como gobernadora.

Los votantes eligieron el martes a la demócrata Lourdes Leon Guerrero, quien venció al gobernador republicano, el teniente Ray Tenorio.

Leon Guerrero dijo que su victoria como la primera gobernadora es histórica para la isla y para esa parte del mundo. Describió su logro como aleccionador y un honor.

Señaló que sus habilidades como enfermera, empresaria exitosa y senadora estatal mejorarán las vidas de los habitantes de Guam, un territorio estadounidense ubicado en el oeste del océano Pacífico. Su primera orden del día será trabajar con el Departamento de Hacienda de la isla para estabilizar las finanzas y afinar la burocracia.

Guam votó de forma contundente por la candidata demócrata Hillary Clinton en las elecciones presidenciales de 2016, con más del 70% de los votos. Dado su estatus de territorio, el voto de Guam no contó en el recuento oficial de sufragios.

La senadora Elizabeth Warren de Massachusetts, una posible contendiente para la presidencia de Estados Unidos en 2020, está entre un grupo de cinco legisladores demócratas que obtuvieron fácilmente su reelección para el Senado.

Los senadores Chris Murphy de Connecticut, Ben Cardin de Maryland, Tom Carper de Delaware y Sheldon Whitehouse de Rhode Island también ganaron. Todos eran favoritos en sus contiendas.

Warren ha generado mucha especulación sobre si se postulará para la Casa Blanca en 2020. Recientemente dijo que echaría un “vistazo” a una candidatura presidencial luego de su contienda para la cámara alta.

Murphy obtuvo un segundo mandato luego de recaudar fondos de campaña que eran 100 veces más grandes que los de su oponente.

En tanto, Carper consiguió su cuarto mandato. No ha perdido una elección durante las cuatro décadas que ha estado en la política estadounidense.

En cuanto a Cardin y Whitehouse, ambos ganaron su tercer mandato.
____

21:15


El gobernador de Nueva York Andrew Cuomo venció al republicano Marc Molinaro el martes para ser electo a su tercer periodo de cuatro años. Ningún republicano ha ganado la gubernatura de la entidad desde 2002.

En Pensilvania, el gobernador Tom Wolf obtuvo un segundo periodo al derrotar al aspirante republicano Scott Wagner.
____

20:50


Greg Pence, el hermano mayor del vicepresidente Mike Pence, ganó un escaño en la Cámara de Representantes que su hermano ocupó alguna vez.

Pence, de 61 años, dueño de dos tiendas de antigüedades, venció a la demócrata Jeannine Lee Lake.

Greg Pence es uno de los tres hermanos de Mike Pence. Es veterano de la Infantería de Marina y dirigió una cadena de tiendas de autoservicio que hoy día está en bancarrota.

___

20:30


La representante republicana Barbara Comstock de Virginia fue la primera legisladora de la cámara baja en perder su escaño, luego de que los votantes de su distrito del norte de Virginia expresaron su desagrado por el presidente Donald Trump.

La senadora estatal demócrata Jennifer Wexton obtuvo fácilmente la victoria en el distrito adinerado ubicado a las afueras de Washington D.C., en el que Hillary Clinton ganó por 10 puntos porcentuales en 2016.

Comstock se esforzó por enfatizar su independencia de Trump, pero Wexton, una exfiscal, retrato a la representante que llevaba dos mandatos en el cargo como una aliada de Trump que estaba fuera de contacto con el distrito diverso y bien educado.

Comstock venció con facilidad al candidato demócrata en 2016 cuando su distrito apoyó a Clinton.

La atención a nivel nacional sobre la contienda ayudó a Comstock y a Wexton a recaudar más de 5 millones de dólares en total, mientras que otros grupos externos gastaron más de 10 millones de dólares.

Las casillas en la costa este cerraron, pero los resultados en algunas de las contiendas más importantes siguen siendo demasiado apretados para declarar un ganador.

Las casillas de seis estados cerraron a las 7 de la noche, hora del este, incluyendo Georgia, Indiana y Kentucky, donde se libran reñidas batallas electorales.

Las casillas en otros estados clave como Florida, Pensilvania y Nueva Jersey cerraron una hora después.

Por lo menos dos de las elecciones menos destacadas, con implicaciones presidenciales, se decidieron después del primer gran cierre de casillas en el este.

El senador por Vermont Bernie Sanders ganó fácilmente su tercer periodo y sopesa una nueva postulación a la presidencia por el Partido Demócrata. Y la senadora por Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren, otra posible aspirante de 2020, también ganó su contienda.

El electorado consideró como prioritarias la agenda migratoria y de salud al momento de votar, de acuerdo a una extensa encuesta realizada por The Associated Press.

El republicano Charlie Baker obtuvo otro mandato como gobernador en el bastión tradicionalmente demócrata de Massachusetts.

Baker venció al demócrata Jay Gonzalez después de una campaña en la que resaltó la solidez de la economía y su papel en estabilizar el presupuesto estatal sin aumentos generalizados de impuestos. Baker es un republicano moderado que ha criticado frecuentemente al presidente Donald Trump.

La legislatura de Massachusetts está dominada por los demócratas. Pero la elección de Baker a un segundo mandato de cuatro años significa que los republicanos tendrán voz cuando se redistribuyan los distritos electorales después del censo del 2020.

El demócrata Tim Kaine venció el martes a un acérrimo partidario del presidente Donald Trump al conseguir la reelección para el Senado federal por Virginia.
Kaine venció al candidato republicano Corey Stewart.

La victoria estaba prevista, ya que Kaine tenía la preferencia en la mayoría de las encuestas y una considerable ventaja en fondos de campaña.

Kaine es un exgobernador que fue electo para el Senado por primera vez en 2012. Fue compañero de fórmula de Hillary Clinton en 2016.

Stewart es un conservador conocido por su abierto apoyo a los objetos relacionados con los confederados y por su visión intransigente en materia migratoria. Tuvo problemas para recolectar fondos de campaña y fue ignorado por los grupos republicanos nacionales.

El senador federal Bernie Sanders obtuvo el martes una cómoda victoria para su tercer periodo en el Senado, al superar con facilidad a otros ocho aspirantes.
Sanders, el candidato independiente que, desde hace tiempo, ha sido uno de los políticos más populares del estado, pasó poco tiempo haciendo campaña para los comicios legislativos.

Sanders ha enfrentado a pocos rivales de consideración desde que fue elegido por primera ocasión para el único escaño del estado en la Cámara de Representantes en 1990. Pasó al Senado en 2006.

El candidato republicano Lawrence Zupan, un empresario de bienes raíces de Manchester con experiencia en comercio internacional, hizo campaña en contra de lo que creía eran grandes programas gubernamentales y de bienestar social. Sin embargo, su candidatura nunca pudo despegar y su campaña generó poca atención.

En lugar de concentrarse en su reelección, Sanders viajó por todo el país para expresar su apoyo a candidatos demócratas y una serie de temas políticos.

Got a lot of stuff to get to today. It’s been a while since I’ve given you any new information regarding Colton’s season. As mentioned before, this has been the least publicly spoiled season they’ve had in probably 5 years. Once they left the country, not much has gotten out publicly. A group date in Singapore, a 1-on-1 in Denver, Caelynn’s hometown and that’s it. Which I’m fine with, since it just means when I do release the episode-by-episode spoilers, you’ll be seeing a lot of stuff for the first time. I’ve already been emailed things like “Well something must be different this season because they’ve kept it under wraps.” Nope. It’s the same thing as it always is, just with different people. There’s drama, there’s crying, there’s cattiness, etc. Just because you didn’t know what was happening every second of every moment during filming doesn’t mean the show is any different. People have become “spoiled” in every sense of the word. It’s like being spoiled isn’t good enough anymore. People expect now to know … Continue reading

          Nächster Rekord! Chiefs-Star Mahomes brilliert       Cache   Translate Page      

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

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

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

Hunt gelingen drei Touchdowns

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

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

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

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

Peterman mit schlechter Leistung

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

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

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

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

Fitzpatrick zaubert bei Niederlage

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

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

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

Jones mit erstem Touchdown der Saison

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

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

Katastrophen-Abend für Darnold

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

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

Alle Ergebnisse im Überblick:

Sonntag, 4. November:

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

Answer Sheet: Why It Matters Who Governs America's Public Schools


(iStock) (gradyreese/iStock)

Does it matter who operates America’s public schools?

That’s a central question in the national debate about education and the movement to find alternatives to school districts that are publicly funded and operated. While charter schools are publicly funded, they are privately operated and are not required in most places to be as transparent as publicly operated schools. The public also has no say in the operations of private and public schools that accept publicly funded vouchers.

This post, written by Carol Burris and Diane Ravitch, looks at the issue of governance and why it matters who is in charge.

Burris is a former New York high school principal who now serves as executive director of the Network for Public Education, a nonprofit advocacy group. She was named the 2010 Educator of the Year by the School Administrators Association of New York State, and in 2013, the National Association of Secondary School Principals named her the New York State High School Principal of the Year. Burris has been chronicling problems with modern school restructuring and school choice for years on this blog. She has previously written about problems with charter schools in California and other states.

Ravitch, an education historian, became the titular leader of the movement against corporate school restructuring in 2010, when her book, “The Death and Life of the Great American School System,” was published and became a best-seller. An assistant secretary of education under President George H.W. Bush, she explains in the book that she dropped her support for No Child Left Behind, the chief education initiative of President George W. Bush and standardized-test-based school restructuring, after looking at evidence about how it was harming public schools.

By Carol Burris and Diane Ravitch

At a meeting of the California Charter Schools Association during the spring of 2014, Netflix founder and CEO Reed Hastings told the audience that the problem with public schools is that they are run by elected school boards. He contrasted this style of school governance with that of charter schools, governed by private boards, which operate beyond the reach of the people. Hastings justified the movement of school governance from public to private hands by claiming that the private boards of charter schools are more stable. This is an odd claim considering that 33 percent of all charter schools that opened in 2000 were closed 10 years later later. By year 13, 40 percent were gone.

Hastings acknowledged that the elimination of public control of public schooling, which had its beginnings in the early 19th century, would be met with community resistance. He therefore proposed an alternate plan to get the job done.

“So what we have to do is to work with school districts to grow [charters] steadily, and the work ahead is really hard because we’re at 8 percent of students in California, whereas in New Orleans, they’re at 90 percent, so we have a lot of catch-up to do," he said.

The objective could not be clearer: Influence districts to expand their charter sector until eventually all, or nearly all, schools are privately operated and managed. Those district offices that remain could be filled not by educational leaders but by managers and technicians hired to ensure that buses run on time, schools are opened, closed or transferred to other operators, enrollment is managed, and funding is distributed. Public voice is stifled. Schools become publicly funded businesses.

This plan, of course, is not theoretical. The Network for Public Education Action’s recent report, “Hijacked by Billionaires,” documents that Hastings has spent nearly $10 million on pushing charters through referendums or school board elections in Los Angeles, Washington state and New Orleans alone. Hastings is one of a larger group of the uber-wealthy who share the same vision.

It is almost impossible to track all of the hundreds of millions spent by other billionaires such as the Walton family of the Walmart fortune, Arthur Rock, the family of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, Doris Fisher of The Gap and former Enron trader John Arnold in their quest to elect school board members and policymakers who will undermine the public’s right to govern its schools.

As the school choice movement grows, the governance of schools has become a topic of great interest beyond the billionaire class. Last month, the California nonprofit think tank Learning Policy Institute issued a report entitled, “The Tapestry of American Public Education: How Can We Create a System of Schools Worth Choosing for All?”The thesis of the report is that school choice — the movement to find alternatives to publicly funded and publicly operated school districts — is not an end in itself but rather a means to an end. In the words of the authors, it exists to “create a system in which all children choose and are chosen by a good school that serves them well and is easily accessible. “

There is much in the report with which we agree. The authors acknowledge that for 75 percent of parents, their first choice is a neighborhood public school, and therefore such schools must be preserved. They recognized many of the problems associated with publicly funded but privately operated charter schools — high suspension rates, corruption and increased segregation — and insist such deficiencies must be addressed.

What concerns us, however, was the report’s insistence that school governance doesn’t matter. The authors deny the negative impact that charter schools have on the viability of neighborhood public schools, the very schools they acknowledge the vast majority want. We know from experience that charter schools and vouchers drain finances and the students they want from the district public schools, causing budget cuts, teacher layoffs and larger class sizes in the schools that enroll the most children. Yet the report suggests that charter school caps should be removed, which is likely to further destabilize public schools.

From the first recommendation of the report:

“Debates that focus on questions such as how many charters a district should have are focused on adults and their preferences for school governance, rather than on the needs of children.”

This claim is wrong. School governance directly affects the rights and well-being of students. Ask the students of the Delaware Academy of Public Safety and Security Charter High School, which was abruptly shut down just weeks after opening this September, leaving students scrambling to find a school. Or ask the students who were methodically pushed out of the Success Academy of Fort Greene in Brooklyn, N.Y., which kept a “got to go” list, or the 6-year-old boy whose mother says he was pushed out of an Arizona charter because of his disability.

Governance matters to a 4-year-old girl who attends Charter Day School in North Carolina. She is not allowed to wear pants to school because the charter school chain leader, conservative entrepreneur Baker Mitchell, bizarrely insists that his dress code promotes chivalry and protects the school from school shootings. There is no school board to which she can appeal. She can go only to the courts.

It is, in our opinion, irresponsible to minimize the importance of democratic governance with a scolding, false claim that those who care about it are not concerned with the welfare of children. The authors would do well to read the resolution of the National NAACP, which called for a moratorium on new charter schools because of the way they destabilize public schools while they are not subject to the same accountability, oversight and transparency as public schools.

[NAACP sticks by its call for charter school moratorium, says they are ‘not a substitute’ for traditional public schools]

Of related concern is the report’s support for the “portfolio” model of school governance, specifically mentioning it as a strategy for school improvement. The phrase “portfolio management” was coined by charter advocate Paul Hill of the University of Washington to champion a system of publicly funded but privately managed charter schools.

Portfolio management is based on a stock market metaphor — the portfolio manager is entrusted with retaining “good” schools while turning “bad” schools over to a charter or shutting the school down, the same way one would dump a bad stock. Districts that adopt the model consistently end up with more charter schools and fewer public schools by design. You can read more about how this model has taken over the schools of Indianapolis here.

[What’s really going on in Indiana’s public schools]

In order to push this model, a recently formed nonprofit, known as City Fund, is being heavily funded by Hastings' foundation and the Laura and John Arnold Foundation. Both foundations have invested a fortune into transforming publicly governed schools into a marketplace of schools dominated by charter schools. As mentioned earlier, Hastings and the Arnolds have contributed millions to the campaigns of school board members, organizations and legislators who share that goal.

Those who push the portfolio model point to Denver and New Orleans as examples of success, but they avoid talking about the dismal failures of the model in Memphis, Nashville and Philadelphia. Ironically, Chris Barbic, the architect and leader of Tennessee’s Achievement District, which produced abysmal results, is one of the leaders of City Fund.

Public governance of our schools matters for the health of our democracy. The public school was designed to serve and promote the common good; it is paid for by the public, and it belongs to the public, not entrepreneurs. If governance is really no more than an adult preference, how long will it be before private and religious schools are included in the portfolio as well?

In her thoughtful essay in the Atlantic, Amy Lueck traces the history of the American high school as a center and anchor for communities. She argues that school choice and the “charterization” of public schooling is putting that institution at risk. Lueck concludes with this warning:

As an institution, the fate of the high school cannot be detached from the community of which it is a part. Like all educational institutions, it is inextricably wrapped up with the goals and values of the town, city, and nation in which it is located, reflecting and perpetuating them. Those values include Americans’ attitude to the very schools that would pass them along, too. If, as a nation, we decide that the public schools are a “dead end” for students, we should not be surprised if they become so—and along with them, the cities, towns, and communities they once built together.

Billionaires live in an echo chamber of their own. As they jet across the globe to and from their many homes, the neighborhood school with its bake sales, homecoming dances and lively community elections are foreign and inconsequential. They believe that the role of the average woman or man is to be a consumer, not a decider.

The Learning Policy Institute may be sincere in its desire to preserve public education and in its belief that school choice can be “reformed.” However, when it buys into the narrative that public governance of our schools does not matter, it is complicit in the agenda of those who seek to make public schools obsolete.

          Colorado man pleads guilty to killing young daughters, pregnant wife      Cache   Translate Page      

WELD COUNTY, Colo. — A Colorado father has pleaded guilty to killing his two young daughters and his pregnant wife in a deal that removes the death penalty as a possible sentence, according to the Weld County District Attorney's Office.

Christopher Watts reached the plea deal Tuesday afternoon, CBS Denver reports. Investigators said Watts in August killed his 34-year-old wife, Shanann, and daughters Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3, before dumping their bodies on property belonging to an oil company where he worked.

The girls' bodies were found in oil barrels and Shanann's body was found in a shallow grave nearby. Shanann Watts was 15 weeks pregnant with a baby boy she planned to name Nico.

The case gained national attention in part due to Christopher Watts' public pleas for his family's return before his arrest.

Watts appeared in court Tuesday and pleaded guilty to all nine counts against him, including five counts of first-degree murder, one count of unlawful termination of a pregnancy, and three counts of tampering with a deceased human body. Watts wept as he entered the pleas, the Denver Channel reported.

The plea deal calls for Watts to be sentenced to three consecutive life sentences for the deaths of Shanann, Celeste and Bella, along with additional time for the unlawful termination of the couple's unborn child, Weld County District Attorney Michael Rourke said at a press conference following the hearing. He said a judge has not formally accepted the guilty pleas or the sentence. Watts is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 19.

Rourke said he had detailed conversations with Shanann Watts' family after Christopher Watts' attorney approached him about a possible deal. He said the family was strongly against pursuing the death penalty, especially after they discussed the extensive delays in the process in Colorado. Rourke said their wishes were the most compelling factor for him in reaching the plea agreement.

Rourke said Shanann Watts' mother told him, "'He made the choice to take those lives, I do not want to be in the position of making the choice to take his.'"

"That about as firmly as she could have said it to me," Rourke said.

Rourke said he hoped the agreement would bring some measure of closure for the family, who were present during the court hearing and the press conference. But he said: "I know that will never be fully realized, because the tragedy that sits before us today is the loss of four beautiful lives. And no matter what happens today, no matter what happens at a sentencing hearing down the road, we can't get them back."

Rourke said his office discussed whether to require Watts to provide a full and accurate account of what happened during the slayings, but said everyone involved agreed Watts would never offer a truthful statement. Watts has claimed Shanann had killed one daughter and was actively trying to kill the other when he attacked her in an act of passion, CBS Denver reported.

Rourke said "the spotlight he tried to shine on Shanann, falsely, incorrectly and frankly, a flat-out lie, has been corrected" by his guilty pleas. "The spotlight shines directly where it belongs — on him," Rourke said.

Rourke said investigators believe they have a partial motive for the slayings, but said he wouldn't give details until after Watts is sentenced.

          Live-blogging the 2018 Democratic ripple? Wave? Tsunami?      Cache   Translate Page      

 - by New Deal democrat

I'm close to calling it a night, maybe one more post.  The summary is that there was no blue wave, just enough of a high blue tide to apparently take control of the House. the GOPers wone the lion's share of the close races. But the Democrats won just enough to flip the House.

And white voters lie to pollsters about their voting intentions when a black person is on the ballot.

Hopefully we'll pick up the governorship in Wisconsin, so that we get most of the upper midwest back.

---------

11:05 - NBC calls two bellwetherupstate NY races for the Democrat, Brindini and Faso.
---------11 pm - In Maine, GOPer Poliquin holds a small lead over Democrat Golden.
In North Carolina, GOPer Ted Budd leads Democrat Kathy Manning with a majority of votes counted.-------
10:40 - Mixed results in NY and NJ so far. In upstate NY, with about 34% of the vote in, Democrat Faso leads GOPer Delgado by a substantial margin. The situtation is reversed in NJ, where GOPer MacArthur leads Democrat Kim. In PA, GOPer Brian Fitzpatrick also leads Democrat Scott Wallace.
------

10_30 - Georgia, along with Florida, look like the dark spots for the Democrats tonight.  In the House: in Georgia, Lucy McGrath  (D) has apparently lost against Karen Handel (R).

If the Dems can knock out Scott Walker in Wisconsin, the recompense may be the upper midwest coming back. And beating Kris Kobach in Kansas is also pretty sweet.

-----------
10:20 - In NC,  GOPer holds a slight lead over Demovrat McCready.
-----------
10 PM - EVERY VOTE COUNTS. With 94% of the vote in, about 250,000 total votes, in VA's 2nd District, Democrat Elaine Luria leads Republican Scott Taylor by 40 votes.

AAAAAND, NVC says she has won!
----------

9:45 - It looks like a VA House district may flip after all.  With 97% of the vote counted, Spandberger leads Brat by about 2,000 votes. Brat would have to pick up something like 70% of the remaining votes to pull back ahead.
------------

9:40 - With 34% of the vote in, MacArthur (r) leads Kim by over 20% in NJ.
_________

9:30 Aaaand, not so fast in Virginia. Spanberger has just pulled slightly ahead of Brat, and Luria has pulled even with Taylor, each with about 90% of the vote counted.

Also, do the elctecion boards in NY, NJ, and PA know that this is election day and maybe they should start couting, you know. votes?
---------

9 pm - More bad news out of Florida: it looks like Rick Scott is going to defeat incumbent democrat Bill Nelson. He is ahead by 1% with 80% of the vote counted.

And now NBC says the R's have also picked up the Indiana Senate seet by defedating Democrtic incumbent Joe Donnelly.
_____________

8:50 A little good news: NC-9 Dan McCready (D) vs. Mark Harris (R) - McCready holds a slight lead with 15% of the vote in.

And Menendez won the "vote for the crook, it's important" election in NJ
_______

8:40 This is big, and it's bad news: it looks like DeSantis is beating Gillum in Florida.

UPDATE 8:30

FL-26 Debbie Mucarsel-Powell vs. Carlos Curbelo (R) - Democrats projected to flip the seat. This was a D slight lean.
__________

UPDATE 8:20 -- all 3 of the close Virginia races are breaking against the Democrats:

VA-2 Elaine Luria (D) vs. Scott Taylor (R) - 8:15 with 60% of the vote in, Taylor leads 52%-48%
VA-5 Leslie Cockburn (D) vs. Denver Riggleman (R) -UPDATE 8 pm EST: NBC projects Riggleman victory. 8:20 with 80% of the vote in, Riggleman leads by 10% 
VA-7 Abigail Spanberger vs. Dave Brat (R) - Brat leading by 1% with 80% of the votes counted
___________________

Here are the East Coast races I am especially keeping an eye on.

It'll be a bad night for the Democrats if they don't win the following races:

NJ senator - Bob Menendez (D) vs. Bob HUgin (R)

Maine governor- Janet Miils (D) Shawn Mills (R)

In the House:
ME-2 Janet Golden (D) vs. Bruce Poloquin (R)
NY-19 Antonia Delgado (D) vs. John Faso (R) 

On the other hand, it'll be a long night for the GOP if they don't win these races:

In the House:
GA-8 Lucy McGrath  (D) vs. Karen Handel (R) 
NC-13 Kathy Manning (D) vs. Ted Budd (R) 
VA-2 Elaine Luria (D) vs. Scott Taylor (R) 

Here are the toss-ups and slight leans:

Toss up
Georgia - Stacey Abrams (D) vs. Brian Kemp (R)

D-slight favorite
Florida governor - Andrew Gillum (D)  vs. Ron DiSantis (R) 

Senate
D-slight favorite
Florida senator -  Bill Nelson (D) vs. Rick Scott (R)

House of Representatives

D-slight favorite
FL-26 Debbie Mucarsel-Powell vs. Carlos Curbelo (R)

VA-7 Abigail Spanberger vs. Dave Brat (R) 
PA-1 Scott Wallace (D) vs. Brian Fitzpartrick (R) 
FL-15 Kristen Carlson (D) vs. Ross Spano (R)

I'll update these as we start to see results.



          As predicted, a deeply unpopular Trump stomped on the GOP message; early races I'll be watching Tuesday night      Cache   Translate Page      

 - by New Deal democrat

As I wrote a few weeks ago, whatever message Congressional GOPers might have wanted to put out (like, "our tax cuts helped spur the best economy in years!") got stomped on by Donald Trump.

As it turns out, (please be sitting down for this) he was being truthful when he talked about momentum having been going his way. Here's Gallup's weekly polling through last Sunday:


Until the bomb attempts and several mass shootings derailed things, his approval ratings in the weeks following the Kavanaugh confirmation were the best since spring 2017.

Then, during the week of actual and attempted mass murder he went down 4 points. 

Trump being Trump, he had to grab back the limelight, so he blamed the press (and even the victims for not having armed guards in their place of worship!), and amped up the anti-immigrant volume, thus guaranteeing the the ugliest face of the GOP is what has been last shown to the public before Tuesday's polling.

I'll update this post with Gallup's final pre-midterms weekly number when it comes out tomorrow.

By the way, Gallup also supplied a nifty chart of Presidential and Congressional approval for each of the last 10 midterms in addition to current polling:



Only George W. Bush had worse numbers in 2006, and only the Congressional democrats had worse numbers in 2014.

Just based on those numbers, I would expect the incumbent President's party to take a pasting.

We ought to get some clues from some east coast races early Tuesday night. So here's a handy list of the tightest ones, that I will be particularly watching:

Governor

Toss up
Georgia - Stacey Abrams (D) vs. Brian Kemp (R)

D-slight favorite
Florida governor - Andrew Gillum (D)  vs. Ron DiSantis (R) 

D-higher favorite
Maine governor- Janet Miils (D) Shawn Mills (R)

Senate
D-slight favorite
Florida senator -  Bill Nelson (D) vs. Rick Scott (R)

D-higher favorite
NJ senator - Bob Menendez (D) vs. Bob HUgin (R)

Most of the contested races for governor or senator are in the midwest and mountain west, so the issue in the East is whether there are any upsets. Florida, of course, is perennially tight. Meanwhile NJ voters have been asked to hold their noses and "vote for the crook, it's important." If there is a race where bashful voters lied to pollsters, the NJ senate race is it.

House of Representatives

D higher favorites
ME-2 Janet Golden (D) 5/8 vs. Bruce Poloquin (R)
NY-19 Antonia Delgado (D) 5/8 vs. John Faso (R) 

D-slight favorite
FL-26 Debbie Mucarsel-Powell 5/9 vs. Carlos Curbelo (R)

Ties
NY-22 Anthony Brindisi (D) 1/2 vs. Claudia Tenney (R)
NJ-3 Andy Kim (D) 1/2 vs. Tom MacArthur (R) 1/2

R-slight favorites
VA-5 Leslie Cockburn (D) vs. Denver Riggleman (R) 5/9
NC-9 Dan McCready (D) vs. Mark Harris (R) 5/9
VA-7 Abigail Spanberger vs. Dave Brat (R) 4/7
PA-1 Scott Wallace (D) vs. Brian Fitzpartrick (R) 3/5
FL-15 Kristen Carlson (D) vs. Ross Spano (R) 3/5

R-higher favorites
GA-8 Lucy McBarth (D) vs. Karen Handel (R) 5/8
NC-13 Kathy Manning (D) vs. Ted Budd (R) 7/10
VA-2 Elaine Luria (D) vs. Scott Taylor (R) 5/7

Outside of California and a few seats in the upper midwest, the east is really where most of the action is in the House of Representative races. If there are upsets in the "slight favorites," that will give us a lot of information as to whether or not there is a "blue wave." Meanwhile, if democrats lose both "higher favorited" races, their ability to take the House is in real trouble. Contrarily, if the GOP loses one or more the the races where they are "higher favorites," be on the lookout for a blue tsunami!

I plan on watching the returns and following these races Tuesday night, so I will update this post with  results as they come in.

          NYC Trip 10/24/18 Departure Day, Carnegie Hall, & Bomb Scares      Cache   Translate Page      
Last day in NYC!

We had packed up and left our bags at checkout to squeeze in one more diner and one more tour before the end of the trip.

Applejack Diner first...


And one more trip through the southwest corner of Central Park, to visit the pidgeons, mostly












One last architectural marvel near our destination, Alwyn Court

look at those awesome fire breathing salamanders!

no, LOOK! I need you to appreciate their awesomeness


This is French Renaissance style of Francis (as in King Francis I) whose personal symbol was the salamander. See the crowns over their heads?  This has got to be the most embellished building in the city. It's NUTS. And I love it. So much to see. 

Built between 1907 - 1909 it was always designed as an apartment building, but an apartment building for the ultra-rich before the Great Crash kind of rich. 

Twelve floors: only two apartments on each floor, so that the majority of them boasted 14 rooms, 11 of which had windows, and five bathrooms, with elevators, parquet flooring, inidividual wine vaults, its own vaccum cleaning system, and millinery closets (the only way to store your gigantic Edwardian fashion hats, my dear.)

Some included billiard rooms and music conservatories, because we need the full layout of a Clue game here.

The largest apartment, though, put those little peons to shame. It boasted 32 rooms, and 1910 rent of $22k a year, or roughly $585 million a year in 2018.

The fact that you see window AC units should clue you in that this did not last. 

By the Great Depression the building was vacant and subdivided into smaller apartments that a few more people could afford.  


Its nearby neighbor is Carnegie Hall, which was our tour destination.


Carnegie Hall opened in 1891, back when it was simply called the Music Hall. It was almost in the middle of nowhere that year, so far uptown people laughed. 

the original building prior to the towers being erected a few years later

And Carnegie went to the bank, buying up "cheap" parcels, ahead of the curve in real estate where he often resided. Andrew Carnegie, who lived in a one room cottage in Scotland before emigrating, had grown his fortune into untold wealth. And then, with his descendents set for lifetimes, at the age of 66, he started giving the rest away. All told, his charitable contributions are estimated to be 90% of his total wealth. (That 10% could set up your great-great-great grandchildren also says a lot.)

He gave $5,000,000 to the New York Public Library and thanks to his philanthropy opened another 2800 libraries around the country. And he gave the city of New York an incredible music hall.

Tchaikovsky directed a portion of the opening night on May 5, 1891 and he became the first of thousands of musicians to autograph his photo for the Hall. And more than once. The 1892 autographed photo resides in the museum.


The names of those who have performed here are legend. The number of those with live recordings from the Hall are a who's who. It boggles the mind. 

  


This is because the theater has been and continues to be one of the most acoustically perfect stages in the world, so that even after the advent of sound systems, other halls cannot match it. 

Shockingly, it nearly met the wrecking ball in the 1950s. 


Isaac Stern spearheaded the effort to save the Hall when a developer announced plans to erect a red skyscraper in its place. The general thinking was that the Hall was finished because of the imminent opening of Lincoln Center.

Stern had to convince Mayor Wagner that Carnegie Hall would not compete with Lincoln Center, but could instead be saved to serve as a national center for teaching music and the development of young artists. The 1956 Bard Act, which allowed New York City to protect buildings of “special character, or special historical or aesthetic interest or value,” and 1960 amendment by New York State Senator MacNeil Mitchell—championed by Stern—permitting the City to acquire such buildings by purchase or condemnation provided the legal means for Stern and his committee to spring into action. Read the full story here.

And so, we found ourselves in Carnegie Hall for the 11:30 tour, with tons of additional security milling about. 

We'd been hearing a lot more sirens that morning as we roamed Central Park. One of the security people told us about the live explosive device found at CNN that morning. 



Our tour guide was Jerry, who was clearly pissing one woman off with his very direct New York style at the start, but who clearly knew exactly what he was doing. The main hall was being set up for a recording session that would take place that night. The Union is very strict about not allowing photographs while any teamster is working, so it was going to be a toss up whether we would actually get to photograph the gem of the building on the tour. To say I was anxious about this would be an understatement.


Up and away to the Balcony!

Teamsters still going on the stage, no photos!

Down at the Dress Circle, we were allowed to photograph behind us, but not forward


 

The halls are lined with the photographs, most autographed to Carnegie Hall, but many others to John Totten. Fun story. John started as an usher in 1903 working his way up to house manager in the 20s until 1968. For almost 50 years, he had acquired the autographed photo from each performer to Carnegie Hall. And he had secretly asked they sign a second, autographed to him. And amazing, for 50 years, everyone kept the secret. After his death a few other workers must have been in on it, because the rumor had stuck around. It wasn't until the later 1980s that any real effort to archive and preserve Carnegie memorabilia materialized. (This was the most shocking thing I heard.)

Mr. Francesconi, who himself started as an usher and who unearthed a trove of old programs in an air vent to start the preservation movement in 1986, went on the hunt for the whispered "second set." In the years that the Hall was in danger of being demolished, hundreds of the Carnegie photographs had been removed and never returned. When he tracked down the family of Mr. Totten, 200 of the autographs that had disappeared had been duplicated in the Totten collection. (His total collection of duplicates had approached 1000. I asked this on the tour, but Jerry wasn't sure. So I turned to Google after the fact.) It's 1000, Jerry.



Jerry letting us peek into the center prime seat box, complete with a second door. When you dressed to the nines and everyone would be seeing you in your box, you needed an area with a mirror and a hook for your coat before emerging. These usually are not unlocked, but with today's set up for recording, this one had been propped to keep from locking. 

We were toward the end of the tour, having worked our way down to the floor and as Jerry was talking, the last teamster left the stage and closed the door. It was lunch break. About half of us raised our hands to interrupt him. "Can we take pictures NOW?"

He looked around nonchalantly, like a man who is here everyday and doesn't consider the fact that most of the people he's leading around are going to have exactly one opportunity to take a photo. 

"Oh, yes, if they're all gone, go ahead."


 
Renowned violinist, Isaac Stern, one of the saviors of the Hall, is immortalized just outside the main hall, which now bears his name. It is called the Isaac Stern Auditorium


The museum is where we finished our tour.  Lined along the walls in glass cases, all the recordings made live at Carnegie Hall. Along other walls, history and photographs and programs from more than a century of music and history makers.





That's Booker T. Washington speaking. There's Mark Twain seated behind him. (1906)

Lionel Hampton's mallets, Benny Goodman's clarinet, Gene Krupa's drumsticks



A piece of the stage after it was remodeled, that held one of the nails that marked exactly there Vladimir Horowitz would find the "perfect acoustic" for his grand piano. 

His piano. 

Carnegie Hall's own Steinway was not acceptable. 

And when he was playing, his own grand piano had to be transported from his place in New York to the Hall, before there was even an easy way to move a piano into the hall, at which point he would sit down and begin the dance, telling the hands to move a little to the left, a little forward, no backward, for hours until he hit the acoustically perfect spot. 

One of the hands got the bright idea to mark the floor with nails for the next time. 

But the dance continued. And none of the hands pointed out that every single time, the piano would end up exactly where it had started, on those nails marking it. They just kept moving it around until he ended up back where it began. 











  

 As much as I'd have like to have lingered, the bomb threats led us to worry about how long it might take to get to the airport, and get through security, so we headed back to the St. James to retrieve our luggage and catch the uber back to LaGuardia.  


As it turned out, since Marci was staying on to go to Boston the next day, I arrived at my gate very early and with no slow downs at all. I watched the sun start to set over the city from my window seat. 



And just like that, it was over. 

Chicago from the air



versus Des Moines from the air


and back on the ground in Denver under a full moon. (and the laptop reflection from the seat beside me)

DENVER (BRAIN) — Paul Craig, the co-founder and president of Rudy Project North America, is leaving the company to spend more time with his family and pursue several philanthropic interests.

Craig helped launch Rudy Project North America in 1998, spearheading the company's Denver office. The company now sponsors tens of thousands of athletes, teams and organizations and recently won its eighth consecutive helmet count at the Kona Ironman World Championships. 

"All good things come to an end," Craig said. "I look forward to hanging out with my wife and three young kids, scuba diving my bucket list and promoting awareness of several causes I am passionate about. Launching Rudy in the U.S., Canada and Caribbean and seeing it grow over two decades into the premier brand has been about as rewarding as it comes. I want to thank everyone who was integral to Rudy's amazing success along the way and know that the team in place now is ready to take Rudy to the next level."

Brad Shapiro, the company's co-founder and principal, said, "We thank Paul for all his time and energy over the years. Everyone at Rudy wishes him well."

Lindsey Kustusch’s “After Dark” at Abend Gallery.

Opening on Wednesday, November 14th, 2018 at Abend Gallery’s Sugarcube Building location in Denver, Colorado is artist Lindsey Kustusch’s phenomenal solo exhibition “After Dark.”

From the gallery: “In the city, the sun’s rays set behind an evening sky obscured by the prism of neon lights, store windows, and an endless sea of dwellings, unveiling a landscape lit by the glow of millions. The air cools, the horizon softens, and all that’s left in focus is the present moment. There’s a sense of magic and a feeling of possibility. The darkness of night is not the end of a day, but merely the beginning.  Our time is what we make of it, and the city is an ever-evolving and mesmerizing reminder of exactly that, especially after dark. This series captures the urban landscape in its finest hour: the nighttime hustle. Rain or shine, the city bustles with energy, illuminating the air with fluorescent potential. Just like the essence of art itself, the evening hours offer us a chance to see our world differently, and the urban landscape is not only home but a place of infinite creative interpretation.”

A SHORT PROSE PIECE ON ONE OF THIS BOOK’S CENTRAL THEMES

We are raking leaves. Or I am raking leaves and she is wandering around picking up leaves, and a man shows up. He looks hot, I meat he looks overheated and sunburned or, the red face of an alcoholic, and I know when he calls me “ma’am” that he wants something. The usual “your neighbor told me to ask you,” then shows his hand, the infected gash. I remember this from subways, the men with amputations exposed or diseased faces or wounded legs—he shows his hand and begins to speak. I’m standing still, not saying no not saying yes, I’m listening, and she walks toward him and holds out a leaf, which he takes, then she takes it back. He laughs a bit uncomfortably, and continues: the wife who left him, the kid at home, and how he had a Band-Aid but sweated it off, how he used to bring in two thousand a week, but now zero, and he lifts his hat to show his other wound, not so bad as the one on his hand, more a scrape or a bruise on the forehead, and then, almost in slow motion, still standing before him, she opens her arms and wraps them around his legs, her face too close to his crotch. I, also slow, say Lucy, come here, and he pats her on the back and says, aren’t you affectionate. I take her hand and we go inside to find money, a ten is what I have, and I return and give it to him. Then he leaves, not without offering to bring her his son’s toys, since his wife left with his son. I say no, thank you, you don’t know, he says, how awful this is to have to ask for work this way, and I say I’m sorry, and have a good day, which feels stupid. We are raking, there is silence, and I say, why did you hug him? I don’t know, she says. I say, if Mommy or Daddy are not there, then don’t hug a stranger, okay? but if we are and say it’s ok, it’s ok. There is another silence. Then she says, don’t ever say that again.

Part critical diary and part theatrical script wrapped up in the minutae of the domestic prose poem, Denver poet and critic Julie Carr’s latest poetry title is Real Life: An Installation (Oakland CA: Omnidawn Publishing, 2018), a book that moves the contemporary lyric through the intimate moments and domestic patter and patterns of her household, children and childbirth, time, capitalism, American poverty, foreign and domestic policy, violence and mass shootings, military engagements and foreign wars, globalization and global warming. “It’s difficult to move off the facts.” she writes, as part of the powerful and densely-populated sequence “INTERLUDE: SILENCE IN 20 PIECES.” Further in the same poem, writing: “Rests. I am allowed the present tense.” As part of a 2014 interview for Touch the Donkey, Carr spoke to the origins of the manuscript, writing:

A: Like a lot of poets, I found myself in a situation where I had a number of manuscripts sort of lined up, ready to send out or even slotted for publication, and it seemed to be happening too fast. It was the summer of 2011, and my partner Tim said to me, you need something to write that will take you at least five years. In response I created a process for myself – I would write every day from labor day to labor day to labor day, beginning in 2011. I did not allow myself to read back what I’d written, except at three-month intervals, and then I could do only very slight cleaning for spelling and stuff. That way I was always writing into an unknown, forgetting what I’d done the day before, keeping it strange and off-balance. Of course themes and forms emerged, but they’d shift pretty regularly, and I had to allow that, since I was not editing at all. At the end of the two years, I had twelve sections and a total of almost 600 pages. Now I am editing, forming, shaping, and cutting most of it. The editing process will take as least as long as the original writing took. Probably longer.

The title came from my daughter, who was four when I started. She’d often refer to things and events as “real life,” in order to distinguish them from stuff that was happening in her imagination, in her dreams, or in stories and movies. For kids at that age it’s important to clarify, since so much is going on all the time that is not “real life” (and they are often unsure what is and what isn’t real). I started to notice that when adults use the phrase “real life,” they usually mean work, or the mundane, the everyday, as opposed to art, sex, love, illness, dreams, play – pretty much anything that is any fun or has any intensity attached to it qualifies as not real life! I thought I’d trouble the term, while also thinking a lot about labor, work, economics – throughout the writing.

I began thinking about installation art first because I always am, but second because of a talk Fredric Jameson gave in which he claimed that the artists of the future will all be installation artists, or something like that. I can say more about that if you like.

There is an incredible immediacy and vibrancy to the accumulated threads and fragments that swirl, loop and connect through the poems that make up this collection. There is something, one might say, of the “catch-all” to her structure, allowing anything and everything to become an integral part of the whole unit, reminiscent of similar umbrella structures by other poets, from bpNichol’s The Martyrology to Gil McElroy’s ongoing “Julian Days” sequence to more recent works by Emily Izsak. Theirs are the through-line that catches every bit of material that floats by, every scrap of it as important as every other. As the poem “TRY,” set at the openings of the fourth section, “FOURTH MOVEMENT: ALL THAT IS SOLID,” reads:

Coleridge too noticed the through-line between think, thank and tank

And Novalis: Language is a force-field of combinatory possibilities. Speaking only to speak we express the most stupid and original truths!

Start again: Only in free movement does the world render itself real

While Real Life: An Installation is certainly a collection that could and might even possibly contain anything and everything, it is hardly the mishmash such an idea might suggest—quite the opposite, in fact—strikingly clear, clean and coherent—and something that presents the volume as a whole as something incredibly powerful as an indictment on violence. In its own way, the expansiveness of the collection, paired with its accumulation of small, deeply personal and intimate moments, combine to create a book articulating a very particular series of moments in American culture, capturing elements of her world from the immediate to the historic to what comes through the news, and how one can’t help but bleed into the other. If poetry is the news that stays news, I couldn’t think of a better example of Pound’s mantra than Julie Carr’s Real Life: An Installation.

00:15


Los demócratas han arrebatado por lo menos 23 escaños de la Cámara de Representantes a los republicanos, lo que los encamina a alcanzar los 218 que requieren para ser mayoría.

Los demócratas desbancaron a por lo menos 17 republicanos al ganar distritos moderados suburbanos de diversas partes del país, desde los suburbios de Washington, Nueva York y Filadelfia hasta las afueras de Miami, Chicago y Denver. Los resultados de la Costa Oeste aún no se anuncian.

___

Elecciones de EEUU romperán récord por número de mujeres en Cámara de Representantes.

23:55


Nancy Pelosi dijo a legisladores y simpatizantes demócratas que las elecciones son sobre el futuro, y agradeció “a todos ustedes por brindar un mejor futuro para todos los niños de Estados Unidos”.

Pelosi habló mientras los demócratas se encaminaban a obtener la mayoría en la Cámara de Representantes.

La líder demócrata dijo que las elecciones del martes eran más que sobre republicanos y demócratas. Eran sobre restaurar la Constitución y crear un contrapeso al gobierno de Trump.

Agregó que la elección era también sobre detener lo que describió como los ataques republicanos contra programas como la Ley de Cuidado de Salud Asequible. Dijo que los demócratas encontrarán coincidencias cuando puedan y que defenderán sus puntos de vista cuando sea necesario.

El presidente Donald Trump describió los resultados de las elecciones de mitad de periodo como un “éxito inmenso” debido a que los republicanos mantuvieron el control del Senado, aunque los demócratas obtuvieron algunas victorias importantes en la Cámara de Representantes.

El martes por la noche, Trump tuiteó: “Un éxito inmenso esta noche. ¡Gracias a todos!”.

El mandatario pasó la tarde observando los resultados en la Casa Blanca acompañado por su familia y amigos. Los días previos a las elecciones asistió a mítines de campaña, en un intento de impulsar a los republicanos que se postularon para el Senado.

Vicegobernador demócrata Gavin Newsom es elegido gobernador de California; vence al republicano John Cox.

El republicano Ron DeSantis será el próximo gobernador de Florida, luego de vencer el martes al demócrata Andrew Gillum.

El exlegislador de 40 años y oficial de la Marina recibió el apoyo del presidente Donald Trump, quien visitó el estado en dos ocasiones en los últimos seis días de campaña para ayudar a impulsar la participación de los votantes republicanos.

Gillum esperaba convertirse en el primer gobernador de raza negra de Florida. Reconoció su derrota la noche del lunes.

DeSantis no era considerado el favorito, hasta que Trump se involucró en las primarias republicanas y ayudó a DeSantis a conseguir la victoria sobre el comisionado de Agricultura Adam Putnam, quien era más conocido y estaba mejor financiado.

DeSantis perdió impulso tras su nominación, en particular después de decir que los votantes no deberían “hacer monadas” eligiendo a Gillum.

___

La demócrata Laura Kelly gana gubernatura de Kansas, que estaba en poder de los republicanos.

___
22:30


El senador republicano Ted Cruz venció al demócrata Beto O’Rourke para obtener su reelección en una contienda de Texas que atrajo mucha atención y que al principio parecía cosa cantada, pero que necesitó una visita del presidente Donald Trump para ayudar a impulsar al republicano.

Trump y Cruz fueron acérrimos rivales en 2016, pero el presidente visitó Houston hace unas semanas para apuntalar la victoria del senador.

___

La representante demócrata Michelle Lujan Grisham es electa gobernadora de Nuevo México.

___

El representante demócrata Tim Waltz es electo gobernador de Minnesota y vence al republicano Jeff Johnson.

___

Los demócratas están recuperando terreno en su lucha por el control de la Cámara de Representantes después de obtener escaños vitales en Florida, Pensilvania y Minnesota.

Los triunfos les dan a los demócratas una porción de los escaños que necesitarán para obtener control de la cámara baja. Han ganado dos escaños en Florida, desbancando a republicanos, y han ganado otros tres en Pensilvania, en donde un reordenamiento de los distritos ordenado por la corte dejó un terreno más favorable para los demócratas. También desbancaron a un republicano en Minnesota.

Los demócratas necesitan una ganancia neta de 23 escaños para controlar la Cámara de Representantes.

___

22:00


La demócrata Debbie Mucarsel-Powell venció al representante republicano Carlos Curbelo en la contienda por un escaño de Florida en la cámara baja federal.

Mucarsel-Powell es una inmigrante ecuatoriana que ha trabajado para varias organizaciones sin fines de lucro en el condado Miami-Dade. Sus propuestas incluyen prevención de la violencia y protección del medio ambiente, pero su principal enfoque es el sistema de salud y la Ley de Cuidado de Salud Asequible, la cual Curbelo prometió revocar.

Mucarsel-Powell retrató a Curbelo como un político que habla como moderado pero tiende a votar como conservador.

Curbelo es líder de la Bancada Climática y votó a favor de un impuesto sobre las emisiones de dióxido de carbono, un factor en el calentamiento global.

21:20


La demócrata Ayanna Pressley completó su lucha para convertirse en la primera negra de Massachusetts en ser elegida para ocupar un escaño en la cámara baja.

Pressley también es la primera afroamericana en ocupar un cargo en el Consejo Municipal de Boston. Transitó sin oposición en las elecciones legislativas del martes para el Congreso, dos meses después de desbancar al representante republicano Michael Capuano, quien lleva 10 periodos en el cargo, en unas primarias que causaron una gran sorpresa política a nivel nacional.

Si un republicano en la contienda en el distrito mayoritariamente demócrata, su victoria en las primarias le había asegurado un escaño en la Cámara de Representantes, con tan solo una posibilidad remota de una campaña por escrito para detenerla.

___

21:30


Los republicanos retuvieron las gubernaturas de Texas y Wyoming.

El gobernador de Texas Greg Abbott obtuvo un segundo periodo al vencer a la demócrata Lupe Valdez en una contienda en donde el resultado rara vez estuvo en duda.

En Wyoming, el tesorero estatal, el republicano Mark Gordon, ganó la elección de gobernador al derrotar a la demócrata Mary Throne. Gordon será sucesor del gobernador republicano Matt Mead, quien se mantuvo en el cargo desde 2011 y ya no es elegible a la reelección.

Los republicanos también controlan las cámaras legislativas en Texas y Wyoming, aunque los demócratas han intentado reducir la ventaja republicana en Texas.

Guam ha elegido por primera vez a una mujer como gobernadora.

Los votantes eligieron el martes a la demócrata Lourdes Leon Guerrero, quien venció al gobernador republicano, el teniente Ray Tenorio.

Leon Guerrero dijo que su victoria como la primera gobernadora es histórica para la isla y para esa parte del mundo. Describió su logro como aleccionador y un honor.

Señaló que sus habilidades como enfermera, empresaria exitosa y senadora estatal mejorarán las vidas de los habitantes de Guam, un territorio estadounidense ubicado en el oeste del océano Pacífico. Su primera orden del día será trabajar con el Departamento de Hacienda de la isla para estabilizar las finanzas y afinar la burocracia.

Guam votó de forma contundente por la candidata demócrata Hillary Clinton en las elecciones presidenciales de 2016, con más del 70% de los votos. Dado su estatus de territorio, el voto de Guam no contó en el recuento oficial de sufragios.

La senadora Elizabeth Warren de Massachusetts, una posible contendiente para la presidencia de Estados Unidos en 2020, está entre un grupo de cinco legisladores demócratas que obtuvieron fácilmente su reelección para el Senado.

Los senadores Chris Murphy de Connecticut, Ben Cardin de Maryland, Tom Carper de Delaware y Sheldon Whitehouse de Rhode Island también ganaron. Todos eran favoritos en sus contiendas.

Warren ha generado mucha especulación sobre si se postulará para la Casa Blanca en 2020. Recientemente dijo que echaría un “vistazo” a una candidatura presidencial luego de su contienda para la cámara alta.

Murphy obtuvo un segundo mandato luego de recaudar fondos de campaña que eran 100 veces más grandes que los de su oponente.

En tanto, Carper consiguió su cuarto mandato. No ha perdido una elección durante las cuatro décadas que ha estado en la política estadounidense.

En cuanto a Cardin y Whitehouse, ambos ganaron su tercer mandato.
____

21:15


El gobernador de Nueva York Andrew Cuomo venció al republicano Marc Molinaro el martes para ser electo a su tercer periodo de cuatro años. Ningún republicano ha ganado la gubernatura de la entidad desde 2002.

En Pensilvania, el gobernador Tom Wolf obtuvo un segundo periodo al derrotar al aspirante republicano Scott Wagner.
____

20:50


Greg Pence, el hermano mayor del vicepresidente Mike Pence, ganó un escaño en la Cámara de Representantes que su hermano ocupó alguna vez.

Pence, de 61 años, dueño de dos tiendas de antigüedades, venció a la demócrata Jeannine Lee Lake.

Greg Pence es uno de los tres hermanos de Mike Pence. Es veterano de la Infantería de Marina y dirigió una cadena de tiendas de autoservicio que hoy día está en bancarrota.

___

20:30


La representante republicana Barbara Comstock de Virginia fue la primera legisladora de la cámara baja en perder su escaño, luego de que los votantes de su distrito del norte de Virginia expresaron su desagrado por el presidente Donald Trump.

La senadora estatal demócrata Jennifer Wexton obtuvo fácilmente la victoria en el distrito adinerado ubicado a las afueras de Washington D.C., en el que Hillary Clinton ganó por 10 puntos porcentuales en 2016.

Comstock se esforzó por enfatizar su independencia de Trump, pero Wexton, una exfiscal, retrato a la representante que llevaba dos mandatos en el cargo como una aliada de Trump que estaba fuera de contacto con el distrito diverso y bien educado.

Comstock venció con facilidad al candidato demócrata en 2016 cuando su distrito apoyó a Clinton.

La atención a nivel nacional sobre la contienda ayudó a Comstock y a Wexton a recaudar más de 5 millones de dólares en total, mientras que otros grupos externos gastaron más de 10 millones de dólares.

Las casillas en la costa este cerraron, pero los resultados en algunas de las contiendas más importantes siguen siendo demasiado apretados para declarar un ganador.

Las casillas de seis estados cerraron a las 7 de la noche, hora del este, incluyendo Georgia, Indiana y Kentucky, donde se libran reñidas batallas electorales.

Las casillas en otros estados clave como Florida, Pensilvania y Nueva Jersey cerraron una hora después.

Por lo menos dos de las elecciones menos destacadas, con implicaciones presidenciales, se decidieron después del primer gran cierre de casillas en el este.

El senador por Vermont Bernie Sanders ganó fácilmente su tercer periodo y sopesa una nueva postulación a la presidencia por el Partido Demócrata. Y la senadora por Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren, otra posible aspirante de 2020, también ganó su contienda.

El electorado consideró como prioritarias la agenda migratoria y de salud al momento de votar, de acuerdo a una extensa encuesta realizada por The Associated Press.
___

20:05


El republicano Charlie Baker obtuvo otro mandato como gobernador en el bastión tradicionalmente demócrata de Massachusetts.

Baker venció al demócrata Jay Gonzalez después de una campaña en la que resaltó la solidez de la economía y su papel en estabilizar el presupuesto estatal sin aumentos generalizados de impuestos. Baker es un republicano moderado que ha criticado frecuentemente al presidente Donald Trump.

La legislatura de Massachusetts está dominada por los demócratas. Pero la elección de Baker a un segundo mandato de cuatro años significa que los republicanos tendrán voz cuando se redistribuyan los distritos electorales después del censo del 2020.

___

19:55


El demócrata Tim Kaine venció el martes a un acérrimo partidario del presidente Donald Trump al conseguir la reelección para el Senado federal por Virginia.
Kaine venció al candidato republicano Corey Stewart.

La victoria estaba prevista, ya que Kaine tenía la preferencia en la mayoría de las encuestas y una considerable ventaja en fondos de campaña.

Kaine es un exgobernador que fue electo para el Senado por primera vez en 2012. Fue compañero de fórmula de Hillary Clinton en 2016.

Stewart es un conservador conocido por su abierto apoyo a los objetos relacionados con los confederados y por su visión intransigente en materia migratoria. Tuvo problemas para recolectar fondos de campaña y fue ignorado por los grupos republicanos nacionales.

19:00

El senador federal Bernie Sanders obtuvo el martes una cómoda victoria para su tercer periodo en el Senado, al superar con facilidad a otros ocho aspirantes.
Sanders, el candidato independiente que, desde hace tiempo, ha sido uno de los políticos más populares del estado, pasó poco tiempo haciendo campaña para los comicios legislativos.

Sanders ha enfrentado a pocos rivales de consideración desde que fue elegido por primera ocasión para el único escaño del estado en la Cámara de Representantes en 1990. Pasó al Senado en 2006.

El candidato republicano Lawrence Zupan, un empresario de bienes raíces de Manchester con experiencia en comercio internacional, hizo campaña en contra de lo que creía eran grandes programas gubernamentales y de bienestar social. Sin embargo, su candidatura nunca pudo despegar y su campaña generó poca atención.

En lugar de concentrarse en su reelección, Sanders viajó por todo el país para expresar su apoyo a candidatos demócratas y una serie de temas políticos.

The Denver-based Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator is expanding its program to St. Louis to support startups doing research in food, water and energy shortages.

IN2 was created in 2014 to support the development and commercialization of energy-related technology through early stage startups. The Danforth Center’s chief operating officer, Sam Fiorello, called the Wells Fargo Foundation’s collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Colorado “a ground-breaking, creative enterprise.” “It’s really exciting that they have branched out from renewable energy and commercial buildings into food and ag,” Fiorello said. “It’s also nice for St. Louis; It helps enforce our brand as an ag-tech hub and that what we’re doing is best in class.” Trish Cozart, IN2 program manager at the energy laboratory, welcomed the opportunity to partner
          Here's Hoping Donald Trump Has A BAD F*CKING NIGHT. Your Midterm Results Liveblog!      Cache   Translate Page      


OH MY GOD, WONKETTE PEOPLE AND OTHER PEOPLE WHO MAY BE READING THIS NOW, IT IS TIME TO DO THE THING!

First of all, we want to tell you that we feel pretty good about things. But we also want to say that polls are still open in lots of places! So if there's anybody you know who might not have voted and there's still time, GTFO and get them there! But we also want you to know that if we win tonight, we're in the win together. If we ... grrrrrrrr ... NON-WIN tonight, then first of all if it's Stacey Abrams in Georgia, we're calling for an investigation. But if things somehow don't break our way (on top of calling for investigations) we are STILL in this together. Because win or lose, our work is not over tonight! But let's hope we win.

DEEP BREATHS.


NBC has released some exit polls, and while exit polls don't necessarily mean shit while the polls are still open, they're interesting. For instance, according to those they surveyed, Trump only has a 44% approval rating, which is lower than Obama in 2010 and Bill Clinton in 1994, and those were BLOODBATHS. Also, according to Chuck Todd on the television, this is the least white midterm electorate ever of all time. Thank GOD. Democrats' favorables are higher than Republicans' favorables, so that is also a good thing. However, Trump approval seems a bit high in exits from Georgia and Florida, but those are not final numbers and they ain't no early vote exit polls either, so that might not mean shit!

Anyway, polls are closing ... NOW! ... in KY-06, which is one of our first important races of the night, that of badass Amy McGrath vs. suckass Andy Barr. Also, in general, we will get stuff from the Eastern Time Zone parts of Indiana, which is where Joe Donnelly is trying to hold on to his Senate seat.

Settle in, kids, we got a long night ahead of us.

6:15: How about a couple nice facts to start us out? Fact one comes in this tweet, about how the NRA is a sad shell of its former self and the gun control groups are OUTGAMIN' them:

The second fact is this screengrab from MSNBC, what is talking about people who voted in a midterm for the very first time, which turns out according to the exit polls was 16 percent of the electorate. This is how they broke down in casting their votes:

We can work with that!

6:37: OK, Wonkers, we have your first dispatch from Wonkette Secret Teen Election Genius, who A) exists and is B) snarking from an undisclosed location. He says "Tell Dana Bash that she is full of shit, and the fact that Braun is up 5,400 when Gary and Fort Wayne and ALL THE PLACES are still voting, oh and also the only thing reporting right now is a few dirty red counties, is MEANINGLESS."

Correct, Wonkette Secret Teen Election Genius!

Also, KY-5 has been called for the incumbent Republican Hal Rogers. This is meaningless and not a surprise.

Also, who runs elections in Georgia? That guy must be A IDIOT.

Oh that's right. Brian Kemp runs elections in Georgia. DERP.

6:45: We are 15 minutes from some poll closings. Florida! Georgia! Virginia! This is where we'll start to get a feeling about how the night is going to go.

We really don't have updates for you on KY-06 or IN-SEN, because Jesus, there's like 1% in and they're only reporting absentee votes from farm animals, which are ILLEGAL VOTER FRAUD FOR THE RECORD.

6:56: Oh nothing, just the adult human governor of Texas retweeting Jim Hoft and taking him seriously.

6:57: Here is a nerdy update about what's been reported in the KY-06 race between Amy McGrath (the good Democrat) and Andy Barr (the bad man):

Fayette County is the most populous county. It is where Lexington is! McGrath is overperforming and the votes are coming in slow. In Barr's turf, which is coming in faster, he's barely hitting his benchmark.

These are good things! For the record, Wonkette Secret Teen Election Genius thinks McGrath is going to win. Let's see if WSTEG really has ninja election skills or not.

7:00: Actual updates!

You guys, this might be a shock, but Bernie Sanders has won re-election. Also Tim Kaine has re-winned his Senate seat in Virginia. These are according to NBC News, which is not AP, which is what we usually follow, but fuck, Brian Williams was talking so we decided to tell you what he said.

7:12: TELL US A THING, STEVE KORNACKI THAT WE HAVE A MASSIVE CRUSH ON PLEASE DON'T TELL NOBODY:

Basically what Kornacki is telling us is that based on where the early vote is coming in in Florida, Andrew Gillum is outperforming Hillary Clinton and Ron DeSantis is underperforming Trump, in key counties. These are good signs!

7:16: Hey, here's a good progress report for you! Remember crazy ass Kim Davis, the county clerk in Kentucky what hates the gays so much? She is currently NOT WINNING:

7:23: OK, we have a LOT of Florida vote in now, and you will be happy to know that both Andrew Gillum and Bill Nelson are doing very comfortably well.

Also the Democrats have picked up the governorship of Guam, according to MSNBC.

GUAM, FUCK YEAH!

7:25: And here is a race to keep your eye on. Florida's 15th, where Republican Dennis Ross decided not to run for re-election. It's TIGHT right now, but like we said, just keep your eye on it.

7:29: Chuck Todd is currently Chuck Todd-ing about WHAT DOES IT MEAN if Abrams wins in Georgia and Gillum wins in Florida but Bredesen doesn't win in Tennessee? (Chuck Todd knows nothing about Tennessee politics.)

We really want them all to win, partially to see how confused Chuck Todd gets about WHAT DOES IT MEAN.

7:33: Here is some good news that is not final news! in Virginia's 10th, Jennifer Wexton is currently kicking GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock's ASS and she is probably DONE, but Wonkette can't make that call yet. However, in the county that's mostly in (Loudoun), Wexton is matching Hillary Clinton's numbers. Hillary won that district.

7:37: We are sorry to say but the election has been cancelled because Jim Hoft, The Stupidest Man On The Internet, has a BOOM!

We are sorry for ever thinking #Blexit was not a thing :(

7:40: WE HAVE OUR FIRST BIG DEMOCRATIC PICKUP OF THE NIGHT! In VA-10, Republican Barbara Comstock has been BEATED by awesome new Democrat Jennifer Wexton, according to the AP. Now, this was, out of all the districts, the one we pretty much knew any idiot could beat the incumbent Republican. But it has happened!

May it be the first of many!

7:59: Good news, bad news Wonkers. Democrat Donna Shalala flips FL-27, and Denver Rigglemen (aka Mr. Bigfoot Porn) holds VA-5.

Also, this is Yr FDF.

8:00 A bunch of NO SHIT calls in the 8 o'clock hour. Senate in MD, DE, CT, RI, MA, PA -- all Dems, woohoo. Governor's races in PA, and MA. Why even does Massachusetts have a Republican governor, Yr FDF asks from Maryland. AHEM.

8:10 I see you out there freaking out about Florida. Cut that shit out! Lots of Miami-Dade, most of Broward, and Tallahassee and Tampa are still out. Just chill.

8:12 Editrix has made a grievous error in omitting to help you to help her to get hammered.

8:35: OK GUYS HI, IT IS EVAN AGAIN. So we've had a couple/bunch of kind of obvious calls, like for instance we will still have Jim Jordan of Ohio and Matt Gaetz of Florida to kick around. Joy.

NBC projects that all the people who said "Bob Menendez might lose, you guys!" are absolutely full of shit, and that Menendez will be a winner, winner, chicken dinner.

Andrew Gillum's race against the shithead continues to be a fucking nailbiter, and so does Bill Nelson's Senate race, so BRB having some heart attacks.

Georgia is way too early to call and Brian Kemp is obviously looking for some Stacey Abrams votes to delete somehow.

Karl Dean, per NBC, has lost his race to be the Democratic governor of Tennessee. Let us tell you, as a Tennessee Person, that we don't think that race has ONE SOLITARY DICK to do with Phil Bredesen's race in Tennessee, which is still very early to call. (We predicted Karl would lose. We hated to say it but it was just damn true.)

Finally, JB Pritzker and Gina Raimondo are the governors of Illinois and Rhode Island, respectively. Oh and that Republican fucker Hogan in Maryland.

8:45: OH HEY YOU GUYS, looks like Beto won the early vote in Texas. Maybe that will stick!

Sorry, we are at that plateau portion of the night where all the nailbiters drag out. Grrrrrrr.

8:47: Bad news, you guys. Lots of Democrats are going to win tonight, but Amy McGrath isn't one of them. :(

8:57: MSNBC says Joe Donnelly has lost his race in Indiana. And our Senate dreams begin to slip away ...

But RELAX, GUYS, there is a lot of night left. The Senate was always a longshot with this year's map.

8:59: Democratic Senator Joe Manchin keeps his seat, so we'll still have him to kick around, JUST KIDDING WE ARE GLAD TO SEE THAT A REPUBLICAN DID NOT PICK UP THAT SENATE SEAT, ESPECIALLY IF JOE DONNELLY SUCKS AN ASS.

Martin Heinrich, Amy Klobuchar, Tammy Baldwin, Kirsten Gillibrand also all going back to the Senate, according to the 9:00 PM calls after those poll closings. Those were all expected, obviously.

9:03: Guys. We were wrong, unless NBC is wrong. MSNBC just called Tennessee for Marsha Fucking Blackburn.

9:05: OK, but here is a good news! Amendment 4 in Florida, which restores voting rights to felons who have paid their debt to society, is projected to pass!

9:07: Also, we want to let you know what is out in Florida, and it's a small part of Miami-Dade County and also 30% of Fucking Broward County, because it's always Fucking Broward County. That's why so much is in right now, and everything is still too close to fucking call, goddammit.

9:17: OK, we are going to say we don't know if MSNBC's projection (not call, PROJECTION) that Bredesen loses in Tennessee was wrong, but we are going to say we think they (and CNN) may have gotten in front of their skis a little bit. Why? Shelby and Davidson counties are not remotedly reporting yet. (That's the Memphis metro and Nashville.)

Everything else still a fucking nailbiter oh my god we haven't even started drinking yet can you believe it?

9:29: Happy Democrat House pickups to report!

Democrat Mary Gay Scanlon wins PA-05! Pickup!

Democrat Jason Crow wins CO-06! Pickup!

9:37: More happy!

JARED POLIS WINS THE GOVERNOR'S RACE IN COLORADO!

This means this is the first state in America to be run BY A GAY DUDE!

9:39: More happy!!!!!

Conor Lamb wins newly created PA-17 district! This counts as a pickup, even though he was already in Congress, because again, redrawn new district!

9:41: MOAR HAPPY!!1111!!!

They are both the first!

Anyway, Texas and Florida are still shitshows.

9:43: MOAR HAPPY!

9:45: If you've been wondering why we haven't been talking about the GA-Gov race, it is because they are counting SLOW. That's right, Brian Kemp is using his fingers AND his toes.

9:49: Here is another happy!

Also Democrat Dean Phillips just beat incumbent Republican Erik Paulsen in MN-03, so there is another #pickup!

By the way, if you are having PTSD, please let us help you.

We are pretty sure we are going to win the House. We are pretty sure we are not gonna win the Senate. ALL OF THIS WAS EXPECTED. In fact, the Dems are doing pretty much everything we expected.

Also, as Steve Kornacki just said on the MSNBC, there were 25 GOP districts that Hillary Clinton won in 2016. The GOP has not kept a single one of them yet.

RELAX, the night is a fetus.

9:55: HOORAY!

SHARICE DAVIDS is projected by MSNBC to win KS-03, which is another Dem pickup! Sharice Davids, as Rachel Maddow just pointed out, is both Native American and also a lesbian. First Native woman in the House.

This. Is. YOOGE.

9:56: And Mikie Sherrill (that is a GIRL Mikie, FYI) wins in NJ-11. That is another Dem pickup, in a NON-Hillary district!

9:58: YOU GUYS KRIS KOBACH JUST FUCKING LOST TO DEMOCRAT LAURA KELLY FOR GOVERNOR OF KANSAS.

Also, Carlos Curbelo lost his seat in Florida to Democrat Debbie Mukarsey-Powell in FL-26. That is a pickup!\

BUT YOU GUYS KRIS KOBACH OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG.

Elaine Luria picks up VA-02 against GOP incumbent Scott Taylor in a Trump district.

And Chrissy Houlahan The Democrat picks up a seat in the new PA-06.

And Max Rose beats Staten Island's DAN DONOVAN for another DEMOCRATIC PICUP!

Susan Wild wins PA-07. She is a Democrat! This is Charlie Dent's old seat!

12 to go for a majority!

We just copied all Steve Kornacki's homeworks!

10:09: MSNBC projects Heidi Heitkamp loses her seat in North Dakota. Voter suppression wins.

Everybody take a moment and remember the stand she took for decency in voting against Brett Kavanaugh. She is a good person.

10:13: And MSNBC projects Beto loses.

Deep breaths, everyone. Deep breaths.

10:15: Listen, you guys.

Beto O'Rourke was always a long shot. If this holds, HE WAS NEVER SUPPOSED TO BE THIS CLOSE TO BEATING TED CRUZ.

Also, he just became the 2020 frontrunner.

10:20: Fuck, we walk away for eight seconds!

Pete Sessions loses in TX! To a black guy! Named Colin Allred! We predicted this!

And Democrat Haley Stevens beats Lena Epstein, who invited that fake Jew for Jesus to Mike Pence's rally!

Pickup!

Pickup!

As of now, the GOP keeps the Senate, and the Dems will officially take the House.

10:26: Hey, here is a fact. Pennsylvania elected SEVEN WOMEN to the House tonight. SEVEN.

10:28: Oh hey, Democrat Michelle Lujan Grisham is the new badass gov of New Mexico!

10:34: Fuck yeah, Gretchen Whittmer wins MI-Gov, per MSNBC! This is another GREAT thing, considering what Michigan has gone through the past few years.

Oh yeah and Marsha Blackburn officially won in Tennessee, Jesus Christ, can Memphis and Nashville just secede from the state and we'll call the rest Camp Dipshit?

10:43: Y'ALL! Y'ALL!

BIG NEWS!

Y'ALL!

Remember Kim Davis? The Kentucky clerk what hates the gays? She ain't get to be the county clerk of Rowan County no more, because dickhead lost!

10:46: More happy! Peter Roskam is projected to lose IL-06 to Sean Kasten, a known Democrat!

Oh also, the Dems just flipped the Colorado state senate.

11:01: ANTONIO DELGADO BEATS JOHN FASO IN NY-19!

ANTHONY BRINDISI BEATS CLAUDIA TENNEY, LITERALLY THE WORST ASSHOLE IN CONGRESS, IN NY-22!

And also Andrew Gillum conceded :(

And MSNBC is calling Ron DeSantis the "apparent winner."

But Tina Smith keeps her Senate seat in Minnesota!

And now the polls are closed on the West Coast and more stuff will happen we guess.

11:05: Oh, and Abby Finkenauer beats incumbent Republican Rod Blum in Iowa's 1st!

So yes, guys. There are bad things. But there are good things.

LIke just now, Dem Lizzie Fletcher beats GOP incumbent John Culberson in TX-7!

Beto helped, you guys.

11:09: Wanna see a really fun one?

HOT. DAMN.

FUCK DAVE BRAT SOOOOOO HARD, GOODBYE.

11:13: By the way, you guys, Democrats have a net gain of 21 seats.

Also, OOH! OOH! New Dem congressperson for Oklahoma! Kendra Horn! She beat Steve Russell! OK-05! Oklahoma previous had NO DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS!

11:17: Debbie Stabenow keeps her Senate seat in Michigan, so STFU to Fox News for being like "this black Republican John James might surprise everybody by beating her, because we're Fox News, and we think black voters are dumb! He took money from white supremacists, but that's probably OK!"

11:22: Angie Craig, a Dem, has defeated incumbent GOP dick Jason Lewis in MN-02!

Also, MSNBC just said actually now there have been 100 women elected to the House. SO THAT'S A THING.

11:44: MICHIGAN. LEGALIZED. WEED.

11:48: Welp. Claire McCaskill lost her seat.

Did the Russians rig the Senate but couldn't figure out how to rig the House?

12:12: LOLOLOLOL BETO IS GIVING THE MOST AMAZING "CONCESSION" SPEECH EVER AND HE SAID "I'M SO FUCKING PROUD OF YOU GUYS" AND HE ENUNCIATED IT AND IT PLAYED ON TV AND OMG THIS IS HIS 2020 ANNOUNCEMENT SPEECH.

12:16: HE IS SO FUCKING PROUD OF YOU GUYS

12:33: You guys still here? We are! Stuff is still happening! And we are still absorbing results! But yeah mostly we are watching Beto saying "fucking" over and over again, because that is our sexual orientation now.

12:34: OK, now we are going to bum you the fuck out, because look what Alabama and West Virginia did tonight:

Voters in Alabama and West Virginia have approved amendments to their respective state constitutions that seek to immediately ban abortion if Roe V. Wade—the landmark 1973 decision that made abortion legal nationwide—is ever overturned by the Supreme Court.

Yep. Hit this link for more.

12:37: You guys, let's give New York's 27th a chance to take a bow for actually winning re-election for indicted GOP Rep. Chris Collins, EVEN THOUGH LIKE WE JUST SAID HE IS INDICTED AS FUCK RIGHT NOW.

Some people are just not good at America-ing. Like the voters of NY-27.

12:41: And holy Christ, Duncan Hunter in California too! He's under 60 indictments! Because that's OK!

Hell, maybe they'll have special elections after they go to jail.

12:44: AW HELL YEAH, YOU REMEMBER THIS GUY, RIGHT?

Also Maine flipped its state Senate blue tonight.

12:47: More Maine good news!

Shithole Maine Governor Paul LePage will be replaced by a DEMOCRAT LADY named Janet Mills! Hooray for Janet Mills!

12:50: Cough ABOLISH THE SENATE cough.


1:08 That beady-eyed little badger-fucker is hanging on for another hour or two at least! Looks like Walker might have the votes in Green Bay to close the gap with Evers. BUTBUTBUT there are 45,000 absentee ballots that Milwaukee is about to count right now! And Milwaukee is going pretty big for Evers, so .... NO ONE IS EVER GOING TO SLEEP!

1:40: Sorry, we are not updating OFTEN right now because we are tired and li'l bit drunk but Stacey Abrams is speaking and SHE IS NOT BEING CONCILIATORY.

Let's see if she says "fucking"!

1:45: Remember that what's happening in Georgia, if something surprising doesn't happen with the margin (Kemp is up 51-48 right now) tonight, they're looking for it to at least narrow to the point that Kemp is under 50. That means they go to a runoff. And then it just comes down to whose voters care more.

1:56: Of course.

Sure why not.

But more importantly, it looks like -- seriously -- Scott Walker might be about to go down in Wisconsin, because of some absentee ballots that just were counted from Milwaukee.

Seriously.

If this is the election that takes down Scott Walker ...

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

2:01: OH THANK GOD.

Clark is Las Vegas, if you didn't know.

2:17: The locals are reporting that Jacky Rosen has won in Nevada. HOORAY!

Oh yeah, did you hear we took Mark Sanford's seat in South Carolina?

And it looks like Mia Love lost in Utah too, but they haven't called it. So.

OK guys, we have had a lot of BEER, because, just like Brett Kavanaugh, we like BEER, but unlike Brett Kavanaugh, we don't assault women or men or anybody else. (Do we still have to say "allegedly" about Brett Kavanaugh's allegations? Oh well fuck it.)

What we are saying is that this liveblog is basically over, unless we come back, which is totally possible, but if we stay until the bitter end, we're not coming in tomorrow.

Oh yeah, looks like Scott Walker is going the fuck down and we won't know anything about Kyrsten Sinema until one million minutes from now.

          Republican author of Bigfoot erotica wins Virginia congressional race      Cache   Translate Page      

Republican Denver Riggleman defeated Democrat Leslie Cockburn to win Virginia's 5th Congressional District, in a race that garnered national attention this summer when it was revealed that Riggleman is the author of a book titled Mating Habits of Bigfoot and Why Women Want Him.

In July, Cockburn, whose daughter is actress Olivia Wilde, posted a screenshot from Riggleman's Instagram, which showed a naked, yet censored, Bigfoot. Cockburn revealed that Riggleman both campaigned with a white supremacist, Unity and Security for America co-founder Isaac Smith, and was a "devotee of Bigfoot erotica."

This clearly did not scare away voters, as Riggleman won Tuesday night by seven points in the historically Republican 5th District.

          Upset Watch      Cache   Translate Page      

Election Day is upon us, and most of the major nonpartisan handicappers and number-crunching forecasters are predicting the same thing: Democrats will overcome a host of structural disadvantages to retake the House, while Republicans will hold onto the Senate, in no small part because of the quirks of the electoral calendar.

For the record, that’s what I expect to happen as well. But that established consensus can obscure a reality that can’t be ignored: The available evidence suggests those are the most likely outcomes, but it does not guarantee them—a lesson that 2016 made painfully clear. It is all but certain that there will be a few big surprises on Tuesday night that no one will have seen coming on Tuesday morning. A shocker or three in the Senate, or a whole bunch of them in the House, won’t necessarily alter the big picture. But if the surprises keep piling up and happen in just the right places, we just might be looking at a Democratic Senate, a GOP House, or both.

Here, then, are a few plausible ways the prevailing wisdom could go bust.

A Democratic Senate

Flipping the Senate was always going to be a heavy lift for Democrats, despite control of the upper chamber sitting just two seats away. More than half of the Democrats’ 49-member caucus is on the ballot on Tuesday, and 10 of those 26 incumbents are in states Donald Trump won two years ago. Republicans, meanwhile, are defending just nine of their 51 seats, only one of which is in a state Hillary Clinton won (Nevada, by 2.4 percent) and half of which are Mitt Romney–running-in-Utah safe. But while it’s a historically horrendous map for Democrats, it’s not an impossible one to navigate.

Here’s how Democrats could net the two seats they need for a 51-seat majority.

Scenario 1: Heidi holds on

Of the half-dozen or so vulnerable Democratic incumbents, North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp is thought to be in the most danger. She’s down double digits in the polls to GOP Rep.
Kevin Cramer in a state Trump won by 36 percentage points. The Cook Political Report and other handicappers rate the race as “Lean Republican,” the only Democratic seat right of the tossup column. FiveThirtyEight’s classic model has Cramer as a 3-in-4 favorite. And CNN pegs Cramer’s most likely margin of victory at 8 percentage points, though its range of forecasted outcomes runs from a 19-percentage-point win by Cramer to a 4-percentage-point win by Heitkamp.

If Heitkamp were to pull this one out, though, that would fundamentally change the equation. Democrats currently have four credible chances of picking up a seat: Arizona, Nevada, Texas, and Tennessee. But there’s a clear divide between the first two and the last two on that list. FiveThirtyEight and CNN both have Democrat Kyrsten Sinema as a mild favorite to win a close race against Martha McSally in Arizona. Meanwhile in Nevada, FiveThirtyEight sees Democrat Jacky Rosen as the slight favorite and CNN sees her as the tiniest of underdogs against GOP Sen. Dean Heller. Meanwhile, both sites see Beto O’Rourke and Phil Bredesen as considerably longer shots in Texas and Tennessee, respectively. If Heitkamp and the rest of the Democratic incumbents can survive, winning eminently winnable races in Arizona and Nevada would be enough to win the Senate. If Heitkamp loses, though, Democrats will need to offset it with a bona fide upset somewhere else.

Scenario 2: Beto O’Rourke to the rescue

The path to 51 gets narrower if Heitkamp or another one of her Senate colleagues goes down, but it doesn’t close completely. Democrats would need a hero to emerge, most likely either in Texas or Tennessee. Of the two, Beto is considered the slightly better bet: FiveThirtyEight’s classic model, for instance, gives the Texan a 2-in-9 chance of beating Ted Cruz, to Bredesen’s 1-in-5 chance of beating Marsha Blackburn. If Beto takes down Cruz, he’d cement his status as a progressive folk hero. But if Beto takes down Cruz and becomes the 51st Democratic senator in the process? He’d become a god to the left.

Scenario 3: A very special surprise

If Heidi falls and Beto and Bredesen come up short—or some other less likely combination of events gets Democrats to 50 seats—Democrats could still be alive. Their last hope would be Tuesday’s special election in Mississippi, which is very special indeed: There were no primaries to winnow the field, there are no party affiliations listed on the ballot to guide voters, and there will be no election-night winner unless one of the four candidates secures a majority of the vote. That means a two-person runoff on Nov. 27 remains possible—and based on limited polling, maybe even probable—between the two favorites, interim GOP Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith and former Agriculture Secretary Mike Espy.* Cook has the race leaning Republican, meaning it’s technically competitive, but other handicappers like Inside Elections and Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball disagree. Regardless of Espy’s chances, though, a runoff would keep the Democratic dream of Senate control alive for at least a little longer.

A Republican House

Republicans are running into some serious historical headwinds as they try to limit Democrats’ gains below the 23 seats they need to take the speaker’s gavel. The party that controls the presidency has lost congressional seats in 35 out of the 38 midterms dating back to the end of the Civil War. And according to the Cook Political Report’s count, there have been seven midterm elections since 1966 where a president’s approval rating “hovered” below 50 percent—a, um, generous term for where Trump’s sits at the moment—and in those, the opposing party has picked up at least two dozen House seats in all but one. The sole exception was in 2014 in the middle of Barack Obama’s second term. The GOP won “only” 13 seats that year, in no small part because Democrats didn’t have all that many to lose after getting shellacked in the 2010 midterms.

Unlike in the Senate, where roughly one-third of the seats are up at any given time, the entire lower chamber is on the ballot every two years. That makes plotting out if-then paths to a GOP House insanely complicated, so let’s instead consider the types of races Republicans will need to win on Tuesday in order to keep the House. For the sake of simplicity, we’ll work off of Cook’s ratings and FiveThirtyEight’s classic model (as of midday Monday) to plot a path to another GOP House.

Where Republicans are the favorites

Cook counts a total of 47 Republican seats as tossups or worse for the GOP, giving Democrats plenty of opportunities to pick up the 23 seats they need. But before Republicans worry about winning the bulk of those battlegrounds, first they need to lock down the seats where they have the advantage but by are no means shoe-ins—a “Lean Republican” list that includes 28 GOP seats. Republicans don’t need to win all those districts, but they’ll need to offset any losses in this column with corresponding wins in districts that aren’t nearly as friendly. A small sampling of the kind of races we’re talking about:

• Iowa’s 4th, where bigoted Rep. Steve King is a 6-in-7 favorite against former pro baseball player J.D. Scholten in a rural district that went for Trump by 27 percentage points after going for Mitt Romney by 8 percentage points six years ago.

• California’s 50th, where indicted Rep. Duncan Hunter is a 7-in-9 favorite against former Obama administration official Ammar Campa-Najjar in a suburban San Diego district that went for Trump by 15 percentage points after going for Romney by 23 percentage points.

• Wisconsin’s 1st, where Speaker Paul Ryan is retiring and his former staffer, Bryan Steil, is a 7-in-9 favorite against union steelworker Randy Bryce in a gerrymandered district Trump won by 10 after Romney (with Ryan as his running mate) won by 4.

• Nebraska’s 2nd, where Rep. Don Bacon is the 4-in-7 favorite against nonprofit executive Kara Eastman in an Omaha-area district that went for Trump by just 2 after going for Romney by 7.

Republicans can also add to their cushion by winning in Minnesota’s 8th, the only Democratic seat in the Lean Republican column and one of just two such districts where Republicans are favorites. The GOP nominee, retired police office Pete Stauber, is a 4-in-5 favorite against former state lawmaker Joe Radinovich in that rural district, which went for Trump by 16 percentage points after going for Obama by 6. (The other Democratic district where the GOP is favored is Pennsylvania’s new 14th, which became more conservative after the state supreme court redrew the state’s map earlier this year.)

Where things could go either way

From there, the GOP will need to keep the momentum going in the toss-up column, where 29 of the 30 races are for Republican seats. A sampling:

• Texas’ 23rd, where Rep. Will Hurd is a 7-in-9 favorite against Air Force vet Gina Ortiz Jones in a San Antonio–area district that went for Clinton by 4 percentage points after going for Romney by 3.

• North Carolina’s 9th, where conservative pastor Mark Harris knocked off Rep. Robert Pittenger in the GOP primary and is now a 5-in-9 favorite against veteran Dan McCready in a Charlotte-area district that went for both Trump and Romney by 12.

• Virginia’s 7th, where Rep. Dave Brat is a 4-in-7 favorite against former CIA operations officer Abigail Spanberger in a suburban and rural Richmond district that went for Trump by 7 after going for Romney by 11.

• Kentucky’s 6th, where Rep. Andy Barr is a 5-in-9 favorite against former fighter pilot and viral star Amy McGrath in a Lexington-area district that went for Trump by 15 and Romney by 14.

• Utah’s 4th, where Rep. Mia Love is a 3-in-8 underdog against Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams in a Salt Lake City–area district that went for Trump by 7 after going for Romney by 37.

• Iowa’s 3rd, where Rep. David Young is a 3-in-10 underdog against Cindy Axne in a Des Moines–area district that went for Trump by 4 percentage points after going for Obama by the same margin.

The sole Democratic toss-up? The open seat for Minnesota’s 1st, where four-time GOP candidate Jim Hagedorn is a 4-in-9 underdog against Army vet Dan Feehan in the rural district that went for Trump by 15 percentage points after going for Obama by 1 percentage point.

Where they’ll need to pull off the upsets

Barring a near-sweep of those races, the GOP will still have some work to do to keep the House. Democrats are the clear favorite in a total of 18 GOP districts; in five of them, Cook doesn’t even give the GOP a chance. In a hypothetical world, then, where Republicans hold on to each and every of the 28 GOP seats that lean their way and win two-thirds of the 30 toss-ups, they’d still need to score a handful of upsets in the group of 13 GOP seats that Lean Democrat. A sampling:

• Kansas’ 3rd, where Rep. Kevin Yoder is a 1-in-7 underdog against attorney and former MMA fighter Sharice Davids in a Kansas City–area district that went for Clinton by 1 percentage point after going for Romney by 10 in 2012.

• Colorado’s 6th, where Rep. Mike Coffman is a 1-in-9 underdog against Army veteran Jason Crow in a suburban Denver district that went for Clinton by 9 percentage points after going for Obama by 5 percentage points.

• Iowa’s 1st, where Rep. Rod Blum is a 1-in-20 underdog against state Rep. Abby Finkenauer in a Cedar Rapids–area district that went for Trump by 4 after going for Obama by 14.

• California’s 49th, where state tax official Diane Harkey is a 1-in-30 underdog against attorney Mike Levin in this San Diego–area district that went for Clinton by 8 percentage points after going for Romney by 7 percentage points.

Unlike in the Senate, there is no single House race of outsize importance, and so there are myriad ways either party can cobble together the 218 seats it needs for a majority. Like Senate Democrats, however, House Republicans are going to need to beat the odds more often than they don’t on Tuesday if they’re going to be celebrating on Wednesday.

Is that probable? By definition, no. Is it possible? By definition, yes.

          Is It Legal to Take a Selfie with Your Ballot?      Cache   Translate Page      

On the eve of Election Day, even the most apolitical people have probably seen their social media feeds taken over by voter-turnout enthusiasm. And there’s good reason to think that this particular use of social media serves a valuable purpose: Research indicates that a personal friend or even acquaintance encouraging someone to vote is far more effective than any urging from an ad. In one study, just seeing that your friends on Facebook voted increased your likelihood of heading to your polling station.

So it’s not surprising that so many people take to Twitter and Facebook and Snapchat and Instagram to express their support for a particular candidate or issue, or just democracy in general. But in a large number of states, taking a photo of or with your ballot as you vote is illegal.

Here’s what you need to know if you’re preparing to snap a selfie at the ballot box.

Where it’s legal: There are 23 states, plus the District of Columbia, where you’re in the clear. These states are Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. In Oregon and Washington, residents vote by mail, and it’s still not illegal to post photos of your mail-in ballot.

Some of these states have explicitly written into law protections for the ballot selfie (California and Colorado, for example), while many others have simply never addressed the issue. In New Hampshire, a federal appeals court found the state’s ballot selfie ban unconstitutional. In Indiana, you can post a ballot selfie because a federal judge barred the ban from going into effect. In many states, if your photo-taking is found to be disruptive to other voters, you can still be told to stop or booted from the polling station. In Pennsylvania, some polling locations can prohibit cell phones altogether.

In the remaining states, it is explicitly illegal to take ballot selfies, either because of laws specifically targeting them or through extensions of laws on voting booth photography. Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee (where a bill is due to be signed soon protecting ballot selfies), Texas, and West Virginia don’t allow you to take photos or use your phone at all at a polling place. In Ohio, you can take the photo, but you can’t post it to social media. In Alaska, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Utah, and Vermont, you can take a photo at your polling place, but you can’t take one of your completed ballot. (There are other small ways these state standards differ. If you want to know more about your specific state, this CNN article has full details).

Why there are laws against it: For the most part, those justifying any law specifically targeting ballot selfies point to the threat of vote buying and voter coercion. Under this argument, a photo of a ballot is the only clear proof of how a person voted. If someone wanted to buy a vote, they could demand to see the receipt of their purchase, and allowing photos could incentivize or aid in carrying that out. But as Mark Joseph Stern wrote in Slate in 2016, that justification falls flat before most court challenges because there is no proven threat of widespread vote buying.

Besides, anyone intending to buy votes would choose a far easier approach than sending co-conspirators to an actual polling place. At someone’s home, a selfie ban would do little to stop someone using a mail-in ballot from sending a photo of their ballot to someone else. On top of that, the vote-buying argument fails when you consider that voters are often able to change their vote in a polling place and that posting a photo to social media would be a strangely public way to perpetrate a crime.

Why some courts have sided against the bans: While state laws banning ballot selfies were upheld in Michigan and New York, they were found to be unconstitutional by courts in New Hampshire and Indiana. For the judges in those cases, a ballot selfie—most often used to indicate a citizen’s support for a political candidate or stance—constitutes protected political speech under the First Amendment. To limit the speech, the concern would have to be both very real and very specific, and those courts did not find that the states met those requirements.

What happens if you post a ballot selfie in a state that doesn’t allow it: Given that law enforcement generally don’t scan social media looking for violators of a law that bans something actively encouraged by other states—and that has a good chance of being overturned in a higher court—you’re probably not looking at any consequences for posting that selfie to social media.

If you’re, say, Justin Timberlake, your ballot selfie might come to the attention of the state, but even then, a state’s “limited resources”—and, probably, unwillingness to fight for something so unpopular over something that does not generally constitute criminal behavior—likely means it’ll just go ignored. (In Tennessee, where Timberlake voted, he could have faced up to 30 days in jail otherwise.)

What to do if you actually are challenged by the state: In most cases, you’ll be looking at a misdemeanor charge, but in Illinois, where the law is the strictest, it is a felony to show your marked ballot to another person. You could be sentenced to one to three years in prison for your ballot selfie—but even then, state election officials have said it’s “unlikely” anyone would be prosecuted, according to NBC Chicago.

So if you’re reading this after the election, after taking and posting a photo of your ballot in a state that outlawed the practice, don’t panic. You will very likely be fine. If you are charged, the American Civil Liberties Union, which is confident in the ban’s unconstitutionality and raring to take it on in court, will likely be eager to help out your defense.
