          'Because I'm White': A Texas Poll Worker Was Just Fired After Reportedly Hurling a Racist Insult and Pushing a Black Voter      Cache   Translate Page      
An election judge in Houston made a shockingly racist comment to an African-American voter who protested being flagged by poll workers.

On Tuesday, the Houston Chronicle reported that a Harris County poll worker named Juanita Barnes has been fired and faces criminal assault charges over a fight she got into with local voter Rolanda Anthony over the address on her photo ID, during which she reportedly made a racist outburst:

Anthony went to vote at her polling location before 8 a.m. at Iglesia Bautista Libre in north Houston, a poll worker, Evelyn Tillman, told her there was an issue with her address in the system and she needed to fill out a residency verification form.

Anthony, who is in her early 40s, asked Tillman why she needed to fill out the form, since as far as she could tell, the address in the system and on her ID matched up perfectly. Before Tillman could respond, Juanita Barnes, the alternate election judge, came very close to Anthony and began yelling and pointing her finger in Anthony's face.

Anthony said Barnes told her it, "It's illegal for you not to change her address on your driver's license if you move." About five or six voters were looking on, Anthony said.

Anthony told her, "Ma'am, I've been living here for years. What are you talking about? The address is correct."

Barnes, who is white, then told Anthony, who is black, "Maybe if I'd worn my blackface makeup today you could comprehend what I'm saying to you." Witnesses confirmed this is what they heard Barnes say.

After this exchange, other poll workers intervened on behalf of Anthony, at which point Barnes reportedly cornered her against a wall and started shouting. Barnes later "bumped" into Anthony, the report said, and told her that the police would not help her because Barnes was white and Anthony was a "loiterer."

"If you call the police, they're going to take you to jail and do something to you, because I'm white," Barnes reportedly said.

Barnes was eventually escorted from the building by Harris County deputies, according to the Chronicle.

This incident is not even the only case of a Texas poll worker landing in hot water for an altercation with a black voter. On Friday, Liza Guzman, another poll worker in Round Rock, screamed at a black voter who was confused about where to vote, saying "Get out. Get out. Get out. You are rude. You are not following the law," and threatening to call the police. Guzman resigned after a video of the incident went public.

Texas is one of the most closely watched states in the midterm election. Up to ten GOP-held Texas House seats have serious Democratic challenges, and race between GOP Sen. Ted Cruz and El Paso Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke has become one of the most expensive Senate races in history.

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



Oakland Raiders - Indianapolis Colts 28:42

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


Tight End Jared Cook punktete für die Raiders...

          On election day, even astronauts in space get to cast their vote      Cache   Translate Page      
TwitterFacebook

For most U.S. voters, living or working far from home isn't a barrier to voting on election day. That's what absentee ballots are for. But what if you work someplace really far away, like say... outer space?

American astronauts get to vote just like everyone else. They just have to get that process started a whole lot earlier. 

It's all thanks to a Texas law passed in 1997, as NASA discusses in a helpful Tumblr post. (The law originates in Texas because the majority of astronauts live there, near Johnson Space Center in Houston.)

The coolest fact here: NASA calls voting from space... "space voting." (Let's be real, everything is inherently more awesome when you put "space" in front of it.) Read more...

          The government's war on America's military veterans      Cache   Translate Page      
"For soldiers serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, coming home is more lethal than being in combat." ― Brené Brown, research professor at the University of Houston Not all heroes wear the uniform of war. In the United States, however, we take particular pride in recognizing as heroes those who have served in the military. Yet while we honor our veterans with holidays, parades, discounts at retail stores and restaurants, and endless political rhetoric about their sacrifice and bravery, we do a pitiful job of respecting their freedoms and caring for their needs once out of uniform. Despite the fact that the U.S. boasts more than 20 million veterans who have served in World War II through the present day, the plight of veterans today is America's badge of shame, with large numbers of veterans impoverished, unemployed, traumatized mentally and physically, struggling with depression, suicide, and marital stress, homeless, subjected to sub-par treatment at clinics and hospitals, and left to...
          Yes, There's Still Something You Can Do Today Besides Voting      Cache   Translate Page      

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


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



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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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




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

Whatever happened to 'vote your hopes and dreams'?


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

No wonder Team Donkey is experiencing some cognitive dissonance.



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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

Off the Kuff examined a pair of statewide judicial races.

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Poll worker charged with assaulting black voter, shouting racist remarks      Cache   Translate Page      

A Texas poll worker was charged with assault today after yelling racist remarks at a black voter who she didn't think should be voting, then shoulder-checking her.

"The lady questioned my residency," Rolanda Anthony wrote on Facebook. "When I explained that the address was completely correct, she told them to check it again because it couldn't be. When I finally challenged her she declared 'maybe if I wore my black face make up today you'd be able to understand me.'"

The Houston Chronicle reports that Barnes' fellow poll workers tried to get her to back off, and that one of them walked out in disgust.

Barnes walked up to her and shoulder bumped her and said, "I'm white. Have you seen the news?"

"If you call the police, they're going to take you to jail and do something to you, because I'm white," Barnes told her in front of several witnesses.

Barnes told Anthony she was loitering and she was going to call the police on Anthony.

Things are going to get worse before they don't get better.

THE BIG TURNOUT IS HIGHLIGHTING THE BIG SHORTCOMINGS IN THIS COUNTRY'S VOTING SYSTEM


In Missouri, a poll worker asked a voter if they were a member of a caravan. In Texas, a poll worker got canned for saying racist shit and bumping a voter. (The former poll worker now faces a criminal assault charge.) All over the country, lawyers are running to courts to get orders to keep polling stations open so that people standing in long line—often for many hours—will be able to vote. And in Georgia, where shit is real fucked up, the shady Republican Secretary of State who's running for governor against Democrat Stacey Abrams while also overseeing the state's unfair election system—this shady dude who claims nothing's wrong with Georgia's voting system had his own troubles voting. Karma's a blank ballot, dude.

FLASHBACKS AND FEELINGS AS THE POLLS START TO CLOSE ON THE EAST COAST


The SECB is like the rest of you with the Post-2016 Traumatic Stress feelings. So we A) don't believe any of it until the Russians stuff the final batch of votes in all the boxes and B) desperately want these early signs of unusually high voter turnout and general Trump-rejection to be real. So lets take some deep, centering breaths, go to the New York Times's "calm place" and stare at water flowing over a hand-model's hands when necessary, and focus, for now, on the positive:

AND:

You ask: What about badass fighter pilot Democrat Amy McGrath in blood-red Kentucky? It's close. Send her the best vibrations you pick up at the calm place.

John Roderick, Nathalie Graham, Rich Smith, and Benjamin Gibbard on Seattle streets shortly before midterm election results. CF

On our way to fuel up on tacos before a night of crashing election parties, the SECB ran into Ben Gibbard (lead singer for Death Cab for Cutie and the Postal Service) and John Roderick (lead singer of The Long Winters and a former Seattle City Council candidate). We ran into them a block away from Carmelo's Tacos, our favorite new taco joint tucked inside Hillcrest Market.

Asked for predictions, Roderick said, "We take the House and lose the Senate. And who knows what happens after that." Gibbard concurred with Roderick's prediction.

"I think the governors' races are going to be a wash," Gibbard added. "Remember that beautiful, innocent time when we thought we could believe in polls?"

Roderick said, "All I want is to see Dino Rossi lose. I want to see him go straight into a hole. Put him up for dogcatcher."

After we parted with the famous musicians, a 22-year-old member of the SECB said, "I'm pretty cool in the face of fame."

The SECB hard at work while Carmelos makes us tacos. Also pictured: the balls of dough that get flattened into tortillas.

          Comment on Delta’s First A220 Focus Cities Are Dallas and Houston? by MeanMeosh      Cache   Translate Page      
I guess my question remains, though - is that really the best use of DL's resources? LGA makes some sense given the sheer size of the market, but I'm not sure what they're trying to gain with DTW, MSP, and SLC. As bobbych says above, perhaps they're trying to woo IAH customers with connecting flights on new aircraft, but that seems like a tough sell to me.
          Comment on Delta’s First A220 Focus Cities Are Dallas and Houston? by MeanMeosh      Cache   Translate Page      
Remorse over the DFW de-hubbing does cross my mind - that's actually why I think upgrading the experience here might make sense. It just strikes me as a little - strange - that you see new planes being deployed in DFW now when they've been doing the song and dance about AUS becoming a focus city. Seems like upgauging those routes would fit better with that strategy. In any event, as a DFW-based flyer who was loyal to DL before AA, I'm not complaining!
          Comment on Delta’s First A220 Focus Cities Are Dallas and Houston? by bobbych      Cache   Translate Page      
It's a shame that DL dehubbed DFW and they may be feeling a tad bit of remorse at this point. AUS would make for a great focus city, but DFW has a lot of potential for DL too. And, as stated in the article, AA is terrible these days and DL must smell blood. As for sending the new planes to IAH, DL is probably barking up the wrong tree; but my guess is that they think that by connecting IAH with three of their hubs with the new aircraft they can woo some new potential customers. Personally, I think that's a tough sell in the Houston area but it's probably what they're thinking.

I think that's part of it, especially in DFW, though in many cases, you're looking at fairly substantial capacity bumps in percentage terms. DFW-JFK is going from 3x CRJ-900 to 3x A220, which is a lot of extra seats. Seems like you're getting a bit past cost-neutral in that sense.

          "Builders shrink home sizes"      Cache   Translate Page      
An interesting article by Nancy Sarnoff at the Houston Chronicle: Builders shrink home sizes to appeal to more buyers (ht MV) After years of catering to move-up buyers with substantial budgets, builders are introducing new models with lower price tags and smaller footprints - oftentimes the size of a two-bedroom apartment. They're doing so by building on smaller lots, skimping on high-end materials, such as granite and brick, and designing floor plans that eliminate formal dining and living rooms, foyers and other spaces that often go unused. ... These developments have helped shrink the size ......(read more)

          Republicans could have taken a moral stand against Trump's racism. They didn't—now they're worried      Cache   Translate Page      

Having watched Donald Trump burn through state after state with the darkest, most blatantly racist message in a generation of politicians, Republicans are having second thoughts after clinging to Trump like an electoral life vest. In fact, some of them, who dared not give their name, sound downright pissed off.

“This stupid birthright stuff is hard-right fringe and loses us Hispanics and Cubans" in places like California and Florida, one moderate Republican House member told NBC News. “It juices Hispanic turnout in exurbs for potentially one to three points and is another reminder why Trump’s doom and gloom bullshit is so off-putting.”

Huh. You mean referring to some immigrants as the worst scum in the world” is driving Latinos to the polls?

Naturally, House Speaker Paul Ryan's messaging strategist made the weakest appeal ever via Twitter last weekend for the GOP to sound more positive notes. "Were going to spend all day and weekend talking about the strong economy, right?" Brendan Buck tweeted. Yeah, that'll do it.

Ryan also made a personal appeal to Trump via phone to stick to the economy, according to Politico. But Republicans are likely underestimating the damage Trump's doing. It's not just Latinos, it's the suburbs, where the GOP traditionally holds a big advantage. One GOP strategist, for instance, noted that Rep. John Culberson of Texas was running about four points ahead of Democrat Lizzie Panill Fletcher before Trump started blaring his nativist best. Now, internal polling puts Culberson several points behind. Culberson represents the Houston area, and his Dallas counterpart, GOP Rep. Pete Sessions, is also fighting for his political life.

In this selection, future RADM George H. Miller recounts the torpedoing of the USS Houston (CL-81) in October of 1944, off the coast of Formosa, Japan. Miller, then a damage control officer, describes a harrowing attack, leaving the ship severely damaged and flooding rapidly. While assessing the damage, Miller determined the ship had “more water on board in comparison with our displacement than any other ship that survived in World War II.” Miller’s early years in the Navy included service in the USS California (BB-44), Tuscaloosa (CA-37), Zane (DD-337), Goff (DD-247), Gilmer (DD-233), St. Louis (DD-233), and Houston (CL-81).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Oklahoma Swing, Part 6 - Cushing-Related Midstream Projects Belie Talk of Hub's Decline      Cache   Translate Page      

There’s been a lot of talk lately that the crude oil hub in Cushing, OK, is losing its luster — that it may not be as important as it once was. Folks point to the precipitous, months-long decline in crude inventories that started last fall, or to the fact that just about all of the planned oil pipelines out of the red-hot Permian are pointed toward Gulf Coast refineries and export docks, not central Oklahoma. Then you’ve got ICE and CME’s new WTI futures contracts, both deliverable in Houston — another challenge to Cushing. While Cushing’s role as the epicenter of crude storage and trading may be in flux, rumors of its demise have been greatly exaggerated, as evidenced by the long list of midstream projects under development to transport more crude to — and out of — the Oklahoma hub, and to add storage tanks there. Just yesterday (November 5), in fact, Magellan Midstream Partners and Navigator Energy Services announced plans for what would be the first new Cushing-to-Houston pipeline since 2014. Today, we continue our comprehensive review of the “Pipeline Crossroads of the World” with a look at the many capacity-expansion efforts now under way.


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

Frank Ocean really, really wants people to vote.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mong rằng sự đóng góp đầy nhiệt tình của chúng ta sẽ không đẩy cộng đồng Mỹ gốc Việt vào sự phân hoá đáng ngại giữa hai chính đảng Hoa Kỳ, rơi vào sự kỳ thị chủng tộc, kỳ thị tôn giáo, hiềm khích đầy bạo lực không nên có. Dù theo đảng nào hay ủng hộ ứng viên nào, người Việt chúng ta đều chia sẻ giá trị Tự Do, Dân Chủ, Nhân Quyền, Dân Quyền của Hoa Kỳ, và chung hoài bão muốn bảo vệ chủ quyền của Việt Nam trước sự xâm lăng của Trung Cộng.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2 . Giới Trẻ tích cực ra tranh cử:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

3. Vai trò của Cử Tri:

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

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

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

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

Thứ Hai, ngày 05 tháng 11 năm 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          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.

          Other Than The Blow Voters Are Delivering Trump Today, Will We Defeat Any Of The Worst, Most Vile GOP?      Cache   Translate Page      

You know who I'm thinking about, not the run-of-the-mill Republican garbage who "just" want to take away peoples' healthcare and see them starving in the streets; I'm mean the real neo-Nazi's inside the pup tent. Many of them are in blood red districts that are infested with brain-washed Fox zombies, like, for example, Matt Gaetz in Florida. But there are a handful up for reelection today who could go down, as long a shot as each case is. The defeat of Chris Collins (NY-27) and Steve King (IA-04) would be immense wins for political decency. So would an abrupt end to the political career of Devin Nunes (CA-22).




No one likes being lumped into the same category as Steve King, but there is another Republican incumbent-- a substance abuser currently out on bail and kicked off his committee by Paul Ryan as a national security risk-- who has earned the company: suburban and exurban San Diego County's Druncan Hunter (CA-50). And there are still hours and hours of voting left in California. Yesterday The Atlantic allowed McKay Coppins to lay the whole ugly Trump Era mess out: Duncan Hunter Is Running the Most Anti-Muslim Campaign in the Country. Before we start down this road though, it's important to know four facts about his progressive Democratic opponent, Ammar Campa-Najjar. (Yeah, I know, tough name, but otherwise as all American a kid as anyone you'll ever meet; besides, did you pick your name?)
Ammar was born and raised a Christian and has been active in his church for his whole life
Ammar was born 16 years after his grandfather in question had died. (For any Trump fan who might be reading this: that means he never met his grandfather.)
Ammar worked in the Department of Labor and was thoroughly vetted for the Secret Service, passing a test that Druncan Hunter couldn't pass if his life depended on it
Ammar, when asked, told me his favorite band is Metallica.
Hunter's problem isn't that his R+11 district has changed, it's that he was indicted of various and sundry corruption charges, arrested by the FBI and is hoping to be reelected despite being out on bail. Coppins is a gentleman and steers clear from some of the tawdry details of Hunter's lifestyle-- the hookers, untreated alcoholism, bribery, etc-- but even the polite stuff is eye-popping enough. He explained that "on August 22, federal prosecutors charged the lawmaker and his wife with stealing $250,000 in campaign funds. In a 47-page indictment littered with galling details, the Hunters were accused of using campaign cash to fund lavish family vacations; to pay for groceries, golf outings, and tequila shots; and even to fly a pet rabbit across the country. To cover their tracks, the indictment alleged, the Hunters often claimed that their purchases were for charitable organizations like the Wounded Warrior Project. The political backlash was swift and severe. Hunter was stripped of his committee assignments in the House. His fund-raising dried up, and Democratic money flooded into the district. When he tried to defend himself on Fox News, he exacerbated the crisis by appearing to pin the blame for the scandal on his wife." You want that for a congressman?
Publicly disgraced, out of money, and facing both jail time and a suddenly surging challenger-- what was an indicted congressman to do?

Eventually, Hunter seemed to arrive at his answer: Try to eke out a win by waging one of the most brazenly anti-Muslim smear campaigns in recent history.

In the final weeks of the election, Hunter has aired ominous ads warning that his Democratic opponent, Ammar Campa-Najjar, is “working to infiltrate Congress” with the support of the Muslim Brotherhood. He has circulated campaign literature claiming the Democrat is a “national security threat” who might reveal secret U.S. troop movements to enemies abroad if elected. While Hunter himself floats conspiracy theories from the stump about a wave of “radical Muslims” running for office in America, his campaign is working overtime to cast Campa-Najjar as a nefarious figure reared and raised by terrorists.

As multiple fact-checkers in the press have noted, these smears have no basis in reality. Campa-Najjar-- a 29-year-old former Barack Obama aide who is half-Latino, half-Arab-- is a devout Christian who received security clearance when he worked in the White House. His grandfather was involved in the massacre at the 1972 Munich Olympics, but he died 16 years before Campa-Najjar was born, and the candidate has repeatedly denounced him. (Growing up, Campa-Najjar became estranged from his father, a former Palestinian Authority official, and was raised primarily by his Mexican American mother.)

But facts do not appear to be Hunter’s chief concern. The political strategy here is self-evident: Feed on anti-Muslim prejudice to scare enough conservative voters into pulling the lever for the incumbent-- indictment be damned.

California’s Fiftieth District hasn’t drawn much attention from horse-race obsessives this year. There are other races with tighter polls, other House seats more likely to flip. But what’s unfolding here in the suburbs of San Diego represents an unnerving microcosm of this campaign season: white Republicans frightened by cynical conspiracy-mongers; religious minorities frightened by the fallout; a community poisoned by Trumpian politics-- and a bitter question hovering over the whole ugly affair: Will it ever get better?

Duncan Hunter is not an easy man to find these days. He rarely holds campaign rallies, and doesn’t attend town halls or debates. When I emailed his office asking for an interview, I was politely told my request would be added to the “list”-- and then ignored when I tried to follow up.

...On the whole, Campa-Najjar said he was surprised by how ham-fisted Hunter’s strategy had been. “I thought there would be more finesse to it,” he told me.

Now, though, he was more confident than ever that victory was at hand. With Obama-esque audacity, he began ticking off all the reasons to be optimistic. The district was more diverse than many realized. “McCain Republicans” were repelled by the Muslim-bashing. While his own campaign was infused with idealism and “youth,” Hunter’s was cloaked in the stench of “desperation.”

Very soon, he assured me, the good voters of the California Fiftieth would reject the ugly politics that had permeated their community this year and send him to Congress.

Perhaps detecting my skepticism, Campa-Najjar tried to conjure an alternative happy ending. “And if we fall short,” he tried, “we proved that we exceeded expectations and that...” but then he stopped himself. He couldn’t do it.

“I think we’re going to win.”

3 more hours to vote


Come to think of it, one of the House's most horrible creatures, Marsha Blackburn is running for the U.S. Senate in Tennessee. That's a very red state-- PVI is R+14 and Trump beat Hillary there 1,522,925 (60.7%) to 870,695 (34.7%). The results between Blackburn and Bredesen won't look like that tonight. Here's why:
Early voting in Tennessee is at 95% of the total turnout for 2014.
Early vote turnout among 18 and 29 year olds is up 317% compared to 2014.
Early vote turnout among first time voters increased by 973% from 2014 (57,253). New voters represented 8% of the total early vote.
566,666 Tennesseans who did not vote in 2014 voted early this year. In other words, 40.81% of this year’s early voters did not vote in 2014.
105,487 Tennesseans (8% of the early voting electorate) did not vote in August 2018, 2016, or 2014. Half of these voters are under 50 years old.
Women 40 years and younger increased their early vote participation by 266% from 2014.
African American midterm early vote increased by 169% compared to 2014, largely due to increased participation among young African American voters.
African American women vote increased by 172% compared to 2014.

Compared to all other states, Tennessee is now:

#1 in overall increase of early votes cast compared to 2014
#1 in the increase of 18-29 year olds voting
Still... it is Tennessee, so don't get your hopes up too high.

Meanwhile, NBC News reported this morning that top Republicans are shitting a brick over Trump's racist, xenophobic closing message. He's costing them independents and he's costing them the suburbs. Most of them believe "that his campaign rhetoric has gone too far and will cost some GOP candidates their races and jobs. Trump has spent the final stretch of this election season in some of the most conservative areas in the country, rallying his base of supporters by warning that Democrats will usher in an age of 'socialism' and 'open borders' if voters put them in charge of either chamber of Congress... [A]s voters head to the polls, some Republicans worry that message could backfire and cost some of the most vulnerable GOP House incumbents and candidates in suburban districts or in districts with larger minority populations." Because the fools looking for red meat and cheap entertainment who come to his rallies cheer all his lies, Trump has lost the ability to understand that 65% of the country doesn't believe a thing he says.
One Republican strategist said that Rep. John Culberson, who is in a tough re-election bid in a solidly Republican district in the Houston area, was polling four points ahead of his opponent, Democrat Lizzie Pannill Fletcher, in the days after the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

After Trump escalated his anti-immigrant rhetoric and visited Houston, internal polling showed Culberson down three points.

In some races, including Culberson's, “the certain tone and the certain issues he’s chosen to focus on is not helpful” the Republican strategist said.

...Other vulnerable Republicans are trying to counter Trump by focusing their campaign on local issues. Rep. Jeff Denham, who represents an agriculture district with a large Hispanic population in central California, has ignored Trump's national messaging on immigration and instead focused largely on water, a crucial issue there.

But if Republicans lose a large number of seats, someone will be blamed. And some Republicans are already pointing the finger at Trump.
Food fight coming tomorrow!

SpaceX se prepara para la peor de las situaciones#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000\

La empresa espacial de Elon Musk ha equipado su barco de rescate con un helipuerto y un centro de tratamiento médico para atender a los astronautas de la NASA en caso de un aterrizaje imprevisto de la nave Dragón 2 en el océano.

SpaceX y la NASA han completado los ensayos de como atender a astronautas en caso de un aterrizaje en el océano con el barco de rescate de la empresa espacial de Elon Musk, el GO Searcher, según ha informado la agencia espacial estadounidense. El buque ha sido equipado para atender de la mejor manera hasta la peor de las situaciones.

El GO Searcher no es un barco nuevo, pues forma parte de una flota de buques que SpaceX ha adquirido a lo largo de los años para realizar pruebas antes de vuelos espaciales. El barco ha sido equipado con un centro de tratamiento médico, que cuenta con médicos y paramédicos para atender a bordo a la tripulación, y un helipuerto para transportar a un astronauta lo más rápido posible a un hospital si estuviera herido de gravedad. También se le ha añadido una grúa para levantar la nave del agua y colocarla en su cubierta principal.

"El Programa de Tripulación Comercial [CCP] de la NASA está trabajando con Boeing y SpaceX para comenzar a lanzar astronautas desde suelo estadounidense por primera vez desde 2011. El objetivo del programa es un transporte seguro, confiable y rentable desde y hacia la Estación Espacial Internacional desde los Estados Unidos", explicó la agencia espacial estadounidense en un post en su blog, y agregó:

El transporte comercial desde y hacia la estación espacial permitirá el uso ampliado de la estación, tiempo adicional de investigación y mayores oportunidades de descubrimiento a bordo del laboratorio en órbita.

De acuerdo con la NASA, en los ensayos, normalmente la tripulación parte desde de la costa este de Florida. Si cae en el mar y no en la tierra como estaría previsto, el GO Searcher acude inmediatamente a recoger la cápsula, brindar atención médica a la tripulación y traerla de vuelta a Cabo Cañaveral. Una vez ahí, los astronautas serían llevados a un aeropuerto para ser regresados a Houston.

GO Searcher está listo para entrar en acción en enero de 2019 si existiera alguna emergencia real, fecha en la que está programado el primer vuelo de la cápsula Dragón 2 de SpaceX. A pesar de que se trate de un vuelo no tripulado, se llevará a cabo el proceso de revisión de la cápsula como si hubiera tripulación. Después, tiene programada una misión con tripulación a bordo para junio del mismo año.

Beto O'Rourke Texas

  • Beyoncé on Tuesday offered a last-minute endorsement to Rep. Beto O'Rourke, the rising political star and Democratic candidate in Texas for US Senate.
  • The superstar endorsed O'Rourke in an Instagram post in which she could be seen wearing a "Beto for Senate" hat.
  • Beyoncé, a Houston native, urged people to exercise their right to vote, stating, "Every vote counts."

Beyoncé on Tuesday offered a last-minute endorsement to Rep. Beto O'Rourke, the rising political star and Democratic candidate in Texas for US Senate.

The superstar endorsed O'Rourke in a series of Instagram posts in which she could be seen wearing a "Beto for Senate" hat.

In the post, Beyoncé said:

"I'm feeling grateful for everyone before me who fought so hard to give us all the right to have a voice. We can’t voice our frustrations and complain about what's wrong without voting and exercising our power to make it right. We need you. We all need each other, because when we are truly united we are unstoppable. Sending you all love and positivity on this happy voting day!"

Beyoncé, a Houston native, urged people to exercise their right to vote, stating, "Every vote counts."

She has often been involved in politics in the past, and endorsed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

O'Rourke is fighting to unseat incumbent Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, and has run won of the most watched campaigns in the country surrounding the 2018 midterm elections.

As of about 9:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday night, O'Rourke and Cruz were neck and neck as votes were counted in Texas.

If O'Rourke defeats Cruz it will be a major morale boost for the Democratic Party in a state it has repeatedly struggled to win over.

          Beyoncé Throws Support Behind Beto O'Rourke on Election Day      Cache   Translate Page      
Though she waited until there's less than three hours left of voting in Texas, the queen that is Beyoncé has backed Beto O'Rourke.

The Houston native and hubby Jay-Z may have backed Hillary Clinton during most of her 2016 presidential campaign, but Beyoncé waited until Election Day to voice her support of Beto.

At roughly 4:10 p.m. on Tuesday (polls close at 7 p.m.), Beyoncé shared a photo on Instagram wearing a "BETO" cap like LeBron James and Gregg Popovich did in the weeks leading up to the midterm elections.
Her post could have pushed more fans to the polls if it had come even earlier in the day, and a free concert (like fellow supporters Willie Nelson and Intocable) would have been one hell of a rally. But shoutout to Queen Bey for pushing the blue wave in Texas.

          Lance McCullers Jr. undergoes Tommy John surgery      Cache   Translate Page      
Astros right-hander Lance McCullers Jr. underwent Tommy John surgery today and will miss the 2019 season, tweets Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle. It’s a brutal blow for an Astros rotation that was already faced with the possibility of losing both Dallas Keuchel and Charlie Morton to free agency. The loss of McCullers for the upcoming season now gives the Astros a third rotation piece to potentially replace. Houston does have some internal options who’d likely be starting for other organizations; righties Collin McHugh and Brad Peacock have both proven to be viable multi-inning relievers and could potentially slot into the starting five next year depending on the moves that president of baseball operation Jeff Luhnow and the rest of the Houston front office put together. Luhnow, in fact, spoke today about the possibility of McHugh returning to a starting role next season (Twitter link via Rome). “I’d say we have three spots fairly well locked up, if we choose to go down the path of putting (Collin) McH

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

          Long Lines Test Voter Patience Across the Nation      Cache   Translate Page      

Voters reported waits of an hour and longer on Election Day in areas ranging from the Gulf coasts of Texas and Florida to parts of Missouri and South Carolina, up to Chicago, rural central Pennsylvania and New York City. Polling places opening late, voting machine outages, understaffing and sheer volume caused some voters to abandon the lengthy lines before casting their ballots.

In the Houston area, voters waited over half an hour for polls to open as staff struggled to get voting machinery online. Voters who were late for their jobs left polling places in Brooklyn as high turnout and downed ballot scanners led to waits of up to two hours.

While it is hard to know if the problems exceed usual Election Day hiccups, the issues in states that allow early voting, like Florida and Texas, are unexpected, said Michael McDonald, a political scientist at the University of Florida.

Behind the scenes, officials were addressing potential gaps in computer security. By noon Tuesday, several states reported to U.S. election-security officials that hackers tried to scan their computer systems for software vulnerabilities. Days before, a county clerk’s office said its email account was compromised and its messages forwarded to a private Gmail address, according to person familiar with the matter who was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

Although early voting in some states had outpaced 2014 — and experts anticipated problems if that trend continued into Election Day — the number of voters turning out at polling places on Tuesday caught many election administrators flatfooted.

The problem was particularly acute in the Houston area. At Lone Star College-Cypress Center, outside Houston, polls opened 45 minutes late because of what one voter attributed to understaffing and bewilderment among poll workers about how to operate voting machinery.

“There were people standing in line for an hour only to find out they were at the wrong polling place,” said Brianna Smith, a 31-year-old tax specialist and mother of three. “It was very discouraging for people to see a line wrapped around the corner when they have to go to work.”

The Houston Chronicle reported a similar late opening at a polling place at Notre Dame Catholic Church.

Hector de Leon, the spokesperson for the Harris County Clerk’s Office in Texas, said the county had resolved the morning’s issues. Delayed openings at some precincts, he added, are common. “Clerks are running late — they get there at 6:45 instead of 6 o’clock,” he said. “Clerks forget how to connect the equipment properly,” though he noted the county has technicians on call to help poll workers befuddled by voting machines.

Elsewhere, downed voting machines led to long delays after voting was underway.

Neil Brown, the president of the Poynter Institute for Media Studies, tweeted: “Single scanner breaks down at precinct” in St. Petersburg, Florida, with “some abandoning vote cause they need to work.” (The problem had been resolved by midday, and election officials hadn’t received reports of wait times prompting voters not to cast a ballot, said Dustin Chase, a spokesperson for the Pinellas County, Florida, supervisor of elections.) A Pennsylvanian named Jennifer Culbertson reported seeing fellow voters leave long lines before filling out their ballots at Spring Garden Township municipal building in York, Pennsylvania.

Farther north, voters in Brooklyn reported that, at one point Tuesday morning, all the machines that scan ballots at PS 22 were down. “They’re literally having people fill out the ballot and stuff them in locked ‘emergency’ ballot boxes that half the people in line don’t trust,” Rachael Berkey, who estimated that the wait was over two hours, wrote in an email.

Humidity may be the culprit in places like Brooklyn. “The scanner that’s being reported as jamming wants to operate in the range of 10 to 15 percent humidity, and we’re hearing about problems in New York, Boston and North Carolina, where humidity is really high today,” said Charles Stewart, a professor of political science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Elsewhere in Brooklyn, sheer volume generated long waits. Unlike many states, New York does not offer discretionary early voting.

In a balmy school gym at PS 11, the morning line topped 200, spilling out the schoolhouse doors and onto the sidewalk. The wait was an hour and a half.

The line was “probably longer than when Obama was on the ballot,” Emily Chen said.

Election officials for New York City were not immediately available for comment.

Some voters at the school described seeing people leave the polling place because of what longtime residents described as historic turnout.

“This is the longest line in generations,” Catherine Saunders, a 68-year-old Brooklynite, said. “I’ve been voting here for 27 years.”

Voters saw similarly historic turnout numbers elsewhere in the Northeast. Theresa Marshall, of Wells, Maine, had “never seen it so busy at the polls, even for presidential elections.”

In James Island, just outside Charleston, South Carolina, where the wait reached an hour and a half on an unseasonably warm Tuesday morning, Jennifer Dukes, a 34-year-old photographer, was among a number of locals who sought to persuade their fellow voters to stick out long lines by passing out snacks and water. She saw others playing games on their cellphones to pass the time.

According to Stewart, the best recourse for voters who ran into long lines Tuesday morning is to head back to the polls during the early afternoon. Nationwide statistics show the shortest waits during those hours on Election Day, before a post-work bump later in the afternoon.

          Snap Kitchen Rolls Out Compostable Packaging      Cache   Translate Page      

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Massachusetts Voters Uphold Transgender Rights Law      Cache   Translate Page

The first statewide vote on trans rights resulted in victory.

TransgenderMassachusettsTrans voteTrudy Ring

Massachusetts voters have upheld a law assuring transgender people’s right to the public accommodations of their choice, in the first statewide popular vote on trans rights.

Question 3, which asked voters to preserve the law, “passed by a clear margin,” according to The Republican of Springfield, Mass.

The Massachusetts legislature had passed the law in 2016, adding public accommodations to the state’s existing law against anti-transgender discrimination in employment. The public accommodations provision includes access to the public restrooms and changing rooms of a person’s choice as well as retailers, hotels, hospitals, and other venues. Opponents of the law gathered enough petition signatures to put it before voters.

As of about 10 p.m. Eastern, with a third of precincts reporting, 68 percent of ballots showed “yes” votes, to preserve the law, and 32 percent “no,” the Associated Press reports.

The outcome was markedly different from the last popular vote on trans rights, a citywide one in 2015 in Houston, where voters repealed the LGBTQ-inclusive Houston Equal Rights Ordinance.

LGBTQ rights groups were jubilant about the Massachusetts win. “Tonight’s victory illuminates the path forward amidst a particularly dark time for transgender Americans across the nation,” said a statement released by Masen Davis, CEO of Freedom for All Americans. “This victory is a reminder that broad majorities of Americans support treating transgender people with dignity and respect — and that attempts at the federal level to allow discrimination don’t reflect the values held by most Americans. Freedom for All Americans’ mission is to ensure that LGBTQ people are protected from discrimination no matter the state they call home — and that includes the transgender young people who helped lead this campaign to victory. Massachusetts is a safer and more equitable place to call home tonight — and we’re committed to winning nondiscrimination protections in all of the other 31 states without explicit laws. We’ve permanently reframed what it means to treat transgender people with dignity and respect, and this campaign will serve as a roadmap for future victories.”

“Massachusetts has set a clear precedent for every state and territory,” added Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality: When anyone comes for our rights, we and our allies will fight back and we will win. We will not be bullied and we will push against every myth and lie spread in the name of hatred. Particularly under a presidential administration hostile to the rights of transgender people, victories like this are all the more important. No transgender person should have to live their life in fear of prejudice, and we will always fight to protect strong, clear laws supporting our rights as full members of society.”

“Voters in Massachusetts made history tonight and sent a clear message that transgender rights are human rights,” said GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. “The personal stories of so many transgender people in Massachusetts coupled with support from allies in business, faith communities, sports, and so many areas of the state, shattered stereotypes and sparked this historic show of acceptance. This victory for transgender people all around the country is the latest sign that the Trump administration’s attempts to discriminate against transgender Americans are completely out of step with where the American public is.”

The Human Rights Campaign likewise praised the win. “At a critical moment in the fight for equality, Massachusetts voters sent a powerful message that transgender people are loved and welcomed in the Bay State,” said HRC president Chad Griffin. “From North Carolina and Virginia to Alaska and Massachusetts, we have demonstrated that when we stand together and fight back against attacks on our progress, we win. The LGBTQ community is indebted to the courage of so many transgender people — particularly young people — who opened hearts, changed minds and laid the foundation for this victory, and the Human Rights Campaign is proud to have been a part of the historic work of the Yes on 3 Campaign.”

“Transgender residents of Massachusetts can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that their hard-fought protections will remain in place,” added HRC national press pecretary Sarah McBride, one of HRC’s representatives on the Yes on 3 Executive Committee. “This was a crucial test for our community and movement. The Yes on 3 Campaign demonstrated that when we tell the stories of transgender people and our families, voters will reject the scare tactics and side with dignity and equality.”

          'I Would Have Sold My Coat'      Cache   Translate Page      
The only thing I remembered about George Gissing’s The Private Papers of Henry Ryecroft (1903) was the hero reveling in the memory-inducing scent of his Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire:

“My Gibbon, for example, my well-bound eight-volume Milman edition, which I have read and read and read again for more than thirty years – never do I open it but the scent of the noble page restores to me all the exultant happiness of that moment when I received it as a prize.”

I can’t claim a comparable experience. I enjoy the smells of old books – mildewed, tart, seldom sweet – but have never known such a Proustian moment. In his 2015 essay “Object Lesson,” later retitled “The Bibliophile” and collected in American Audacity: In Defense of Literary Daring (2018), William Giraldi fleshes out the Gissing/Gibbon connection, and supplements my memory:

“`To possess those clean-paged quartos,’ Ryecroft says, `I would have sold my coat.’ He doesn’t have the money on him, and so he returns across town to his flat to retrieve it. Too broke for a ride on an omnibus, and too impatient to wait, he twice more traverses the city on foot, back and forth between the bookshop and home, toting a ton of Gibbon. ‘My joy in the purchase I had made drove out every other thought. Except, indeed, of the weight. I had infinite energy but not much muscular strength, and the end of the last journey saw me upon a chair, perspiring, flaccid, aching—exultant!’”

That’s an experience I know first-hand. We seldom associate readers with feats of physical strength. Our image is more anemic and enervated – reader as sensitive plant. It’s time to correct this libel. Books are heavy. I lug a canvas sack of books to and from work every day. When we moved to Houston in May 2004, we lived for six months in corporate housing supplied by my wife’s employer. We stowed my books, roughly five thousand of them, in a storage unit. In the meantime we bought a house. On Halloween fourteen years ago, I rented a truck, loaded all those boxes of books, drove to the new house, unloaded them and returned the truck by 6 p.m. I must have sweated out 15 pounds in the Houston sub-tropical heat. I’m still sore.

Giraldi spends time distinguishing “collector” from “bibliophile.” I’m not fond of either. The first suggests a monetary motive, books as Fabergé eggs; the second is pretentious, though etymologically accurate. The humbler and more precise word is “reader.” I don’t mean to be snippy. I accept Giraldi’s basic argument: “Books are not objects in the same way that shoes are objects.” One could live comfortably owning one pair of shoes. Being reduced to one book would be a trial. It’s inarguable that, as Giraldi concludes, “a life with books is more meaningful than a life without books.” As Gibbon writes in Vol. I, Chap. 2, Part 4 of Decline and Fall, “The love of letters [is] almost inseparable from peace and refinement . . .”

          Prophecy: 3 Reasons Not to Give Up on Your Local Church      Cache   Translate Page      

Editor's Note: This is Part 1 of a two-part series.

Who am I speaking to?

You are the one who has professed faith in Me and yet you have disconnected yourself from any meaningful relationship to My body—the church.

How then can you be Mine? Can you claim Me as your head and cut off My hands and feet?

I have ordained that you are a part of My purpose in the earth to demonstrate My love to one another in My church. By this all men will know that you are My disciple. Do you indeed profess Me, as aloof you walk through the world? Are they persuaded to call Me Lord because of your love for My people?

I am not finished with you, and I have not found your works completed in the sight of My God. Therefore, cry to Me for a spirit of repentance, humility and fear of the Lord to return to you. For without these I will spew you out of My mouth.

Return to Me, cleanse your hands, purify your heart you double-minded.

Draw near to Me once more.

Show the world you are truly My disciple by loving all men, especially My body.

Return to Me.

On the morning before my 72nd year, I was contemplating the heart of the Lord for His church in this final hour of our church age, and this word came to me, so I wrote it down. I was meditating on what message could I possibly write to the dropout believer in this day and time. My thoughts I have written below. But the Lord clearly has His own perspective and speaks without regard to any man. However, let me speak directly to the dropout from my ministry perspective.

As a dropout, over the years, you still have a hope in Jesus whom you identify with, at least as the ideal the world needs. Yes, there have been a lot of trials and troubles in your life. Some of these have given rise to the notion that you no longer want or need the kind of relationships that are only found through fellow Christ-followers in His body. In fact, some of those very people are the ostensible reason you no longer want to be associated with them. Worst case, some of the things that the church seems to be wrapped up in don't reflect your sensibilities (rightly or wrongly).

Could it be that the culture that you have become immersed in today has dulled the insight that the Lord first gave you? Could it be that the worldly spirits of pride, materialism, self-centeredness, manipulation and love of what the world has to offer taken root in you?

Is it possible that you have become deceived by actually believing that you can love Jesus and ignore, despise, or even hate some of His people?

Only the Lord and you can truthfully answer that question.

Rather let me as Paul does implore you to be reconciled to God (2 Cor. 5:20). In fact, there are seven very good reasons why you need the church!

I challenge you to consider if you are exempt from each of these.

1. Fellowship

One important reason for your connection to the local church is fellowship with like-minded believers. In our society, with its emphasis on materialism and secular humanism, it is inevitable that believers will be affected adversely unless they maintain close fellowship with other believers in Jesus Christ.

In his letter to the church at Ephesus, Paul commands the church:

"Therefore this I say and testify in the Lord, that from now on you walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their minds, having their understanding darkened, excluded from the life of God through the ignorance that is within them, due to the hardness of their hearts" (Eph. 4:17-18).

Paul and the Lord affirm that those of the world walk in "the futility of their minds," in worldly wisdom which is "earthly, natural, demonic" (James 3:15, NASB). Thus, it is vital to every believer to have regular fellowship with spiritually minded believers in Christ to expose the darkness that beckons us.

" Therefore do not be partakers with them. For you were formerly darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light—for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth—proving what is pleasing to the Lord" (Eph. 5:7-10, MEV).

2. Relationship

The second reason it is important for you to be connected to the local church is in order to develop true spiritual relationships. Let's examine closely what we are saying here:

First: The need for real relationships. Everyone has certain needs in life that can only be satisfied by relationships with others. Our first relationship is with our Father, His Son, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. God has intended that man develop relationships with others for mutual blessing and support. Many people try to substitute TV, sports, hobbies, nightclubs and drinks for real relationships. These are a poor substitute.

Second: The need for spiritual relationships. Every believer needs to have some person(s) that he can share spiritual insight with and "stimulate" one another to love and good works (Heb. 10:24).

Third: The need for true relationships. What other kind of relationships are there? False relationships. The apostle Paul summed it up best:

Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? What communion has light with darkness? What agreement has Christ with Belial? Or what part has he who believes with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:

"I will live in them and walk in them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people."

Therefore, "Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you."

"I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty" (2 Cor. 6:14-18).

3. Prayer

The third important reason why you need to be connected to the local church is for prayer. Remember Jesus said—without Me you can do nothing. That actually means nothing!

One major blessing of being a believer is that we have supernatural help available to us all the time. However, many times we tend to get sidetracked with the urgency of a situation or crisis and can't or don't take time to pray. Or we may become so sick or demoralized that we just don't feel like praying.

Our friends and prayer partners in the church bear these burdens in prayer so God can "come on the scene" in our behalf. Sometimes God requires prayerful confession from us in order to be healed. The apostle James put it all together when he said:

Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone merry? Let him sing psalms. Is anyone sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your faults to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man accomplishes much (James 5:13-16).

          SkyWatch TV: Trump, Cruz Join Forces—Is God About to Bring a Red Wave?      Cache   Translate Page      

Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz put their rocky past behind them and rallied together in Houston a couple weeks ago for Cruz's re-election. Could it be that God is using this alliance for His purposes in the midterm elections Nov. 6?

During the rally, Trump acknowledged the difficulties he and Cruz had experienced with each other in the past. But he praised Cruz as someone who has helped Trump tremendously with tax cuts, regulations, and all Trump has been doing with the military and with veterans.

What I found so interesting about this rally was that so many people wanted to come that it sold out, whereas when Democrats hold rallies like that, often only a handful show up. Really, all of Trump's rallies have that kind of excitement. I've never seen anything like it.

That excitement for Trump and his agenda leads me to believe we're going to see a red wave Nov. 6. As I told SkyWatch TV host Derek Gilbert when he interviewed me, I think people have seen the Democratic Party's corruption lately—and Americans are tired of it.

But even if Republicans lose the Senate, the good choices Trump has made for our country will continue. The U.S. Embassy is still in Jerusalem. Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch are still in the Supreme Court. The regulations have already been cut. The taxes will be cut. And although a Democratic Senate may make it harder for Trump to accomplish his agenda, his successes prove he is determined to keep his campaign promises.

In a way, Trump has exceeded many of the expectations Americans had for him during his presidential campaign. After all, no one knew exactly what he was going to do, since he had no background in politics or foreign policy. But he knows how to think—and he plays two or three moves ahead of his opponents. And while sometimes I don't appreciate his tweets or the way he talks about certain people, I am truly grateful for a president who puts the needs of his country first.

But the media won't report on the good Trump is doing. That's why I wrote Trump Aftershock, which is really a sequel to God and Donald Trump, in which I show how God raised up Trump for His purposes and set him in the White House. In Trump Aftershock, I detail how God has used Trump since his nation-shaking election—what I call the aftershocks no one saw coming.

As I pointed out to Derek in the interview, the issues most people have with Trump have to do with his personality, not his policies. Even liberal voters must be happy about the extra money in their pockets because of Trump's tax breaks. I document all this and more in Trump Aftershock, which comes out on Election Day, Nov. 6.

          Playoffs in Gefahr! Cowboys verlieren schon wieder       Cache   Translate Page      

Klare Angelegenheit im Monday Night Game der NFL.

Zum Abschluss des neunten Spieltages haben die Tennessee Titans die Dallas Cowboys deutlich mit 28:14 besiegt. Während es in der Halbzeitpause noch nach einem engen Spiel aussah, drehten die Gäste aus Tennessee in den letzten beiden Vierteln auf und sicherten sich den Sieg. (SERVICE: NFL-LIVESCORES und die NFL LIVE bei DAZN)

Ein besonderer Moment war die Partie für Amari Cooper. Der von den Oakland Raiders zu den Cowboys gewechselte Wide Receiver bestritt sein erstes Heimspiel für Dallas und war auch direkt erfolgreich. Mitte des ersten Viertels brachte der 24-Jährige die Gastgeber mit einem Touchdown in Führung.

Doch die Antwort der Gäste lies nicht lange auf sich warten. Die beiden Running Backs Derrick Henry und Dion Lewis sorgten mit ihren beiden Touchdowns für die erste Titans-Führung. Doch es sollte spannend bleiben. Nach einem 23-Yard-Pass von Quarterback Dak Prescott besorgte Allen Hurns den zwischenzeitlichen 14:14-Ausgleich.

Nach der Pause entwickelte sich die Partie zu einer klaren Angelegenheit. Erst lies Jonnu Smith die Gäste jubeln, dann sorgte Titans-Spielmacher Marcus Mariota mit einem Lauf höchstpersönlich für den Endstand. Der 25-Jährige durfte sich neben seinem Rushing Touchdown auch über zwei Touchdown-Pässe freuen. Zudem brachte er 21 von 29 Würfen für 240 Yards an den Mann.

Playoffs für Cowboys in Gefahr

Sein Gegenüber Dak Prescott brachte 243 Yards und zwei Touchdowns auf das Scoreboard, er kassierte allerdings auch eine Interception.

Für Tennessee ist der Sieg gegen die Cowboys der erste Erfolg nach einer Pleitenserie von drei Spielen. In der AFC South liegt das Team mit einer Bilanz von 4:4 auf dem zweiten Rang hinter den Houston Texans. Schwieriger ist die Tabellensituation für die Dallas Cowboys. Nach nun zwei Niederlagen in Folge liegt das Team von Head Coach Jason Garrett mit drei Siegen und fünf Pleiten auf dem dritten Rang in der NFC East.

          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.

Van Eric Turner : Batería


Heaven and Hell Records es un sello americano procedente de Carolina del Norte que se dedica al rescate de bandas añejas. Hoy nos ofrecen a Lace Dragon una banda procedente de Pasadena ( Texas) y creada en 1983 por el guitarrista Russ Robison.
La banda lo dejó a los inicios de la década de los noventa, en su haber tan solo cuentan con una demo y un álbum de título homónimo compuesto por ocho temas lanzado en 1990, después de eso, la desaparición. Tan solo su batería Van Eric Turner, sigue en activo, se traslado a Houston y está en una banda de Thrash Metal llamada Victim.
Este sello nos ofrece un álbum lanzado originalmente en 1990 que cuenta con las siguientes ventajas. Le han cambiado el título del álbum a Up from the Depths, cuando el oiriginal contenía un título homónimo. Viene el cd con un libreto que contiene 12 páginas con fotos de la banda y su historia. La portada original era un dibujo en blanco y negro bastante cutre, el cd tiene nueva portada y es un trabajo de Steve Cobb y sobre todo, es la primera vez que se edita en formato CD.
Efectivamente, Lace Dragon es una banda que es muy difícil de lograr, así que se agradece este lanzamiento. Ellos se mueven o mejor dicho se movían entorno a la idea de mezclar Speed Metal con Us Power. El sello remasteriza el trabajo, han echo lo que han podido porque el sonido original era arcaico y un rescate casi imposible.
La potencia sin control no es nada en este trabajo hay un exceso de solos de guitarra, en todos los temas y no siempre son acertados. Pero es un viaje para los nostálgicos, puede que lo mejor de esta banda sea su cantante, Russ Robinson que por cierto, después de dejar Lace Dragon dejó para siempre el mundo de la música, es un cantante con una voz ronca y potente que os va a sonar a los clásicos, salvando las distancias recuerda al malogrado Kimball de Omen, una banda de la que tienen mucho, por cierto.
A parte de la influencia de Omen, nos encontramos con otras como la de Griffin, Attacker, Znowhite, Détente, Liege Lord.... etc. Nos encontramos ante una base rítmica siempre acelerada, con un sonido blando, el bajista no aporta nada y eso es por culpa de la producción. Siempre escupiendo solos a la velocidad del vértigo, rozando por el momento el Us Power Metal, después el Power/ Thrash y siempre el Speed Metal. A mi me recuerdan a bandas americanas muy underground como Widows Rose o los Damien. No voy a hacer apología de la década de los ochenta, porque no todo es nostalgía y pureza dentro del metal, los Lace Dragon eran aguerridos, tenían potencia pero técnica, feeling, pues tenían la justa, aún así considero que el rescate merece la pena.

 Since El Jefe, el muy viejo sargento de la fuerza aérea, has been waxing poetic with pictures of Fall in the Far North East, I thought it best to counter with "yeah, well, 'bout 3 weeks too late!"  The Fall Foliage was rather muted as we sailed the St Lawrence.

But, even a retired fighter pilot and a retired MSgt don't can't reschedule Mother Nature.

Or even moderate her.
Pedernales River near our place.  This is LOW water compared to the Llano River north of us.

Our Stock Pond, a day after the rain stopped. The far side is about 15' deep

However, once the flooding ended down here and the ark came ashore, we were treated to some fall foliage of our own

 



 Our Chinese Pistach Tree is showing its colors quite nicely.  That's our guest house in the background, it will figure later in the post.

So....Fall?  Check.  In the 40's in the morning.  70's in the evening.  Just about perfection especially with the Fall Back aspect of DST.  Much nicer driving in when the sun's up.  Makes the deer easier to see.

As I mentioned last week, the Juvat clan was headed into some major course changes in the ensuing week.
9 g's will turn you around in a hurry, I'd estimate this weeks changes at about 13 g's. Source

Or for you nautical types out there. (You know who you are.)


Coming about Sir! Source

 The week started Sunday with Dinner.  Last chance for the gang to get together and wish Little Juvat and his Bride "Bon Voyage".  So we did it up pretty well.


From L to R: DIL, Little J, My Niece, her new son, her Daughter, her Husband, My Sister, Mrs J and some dopey old Fighter Pilot.

Carnitas was the dish, some beer and wine was consumed and a good time was had.  After dinner we adjourned down to the Guest House where some Oak was consumed in the creation of a dessert I'd never heard of prior (S'Mores,  evidently I've led a deprived life never having been a girl scout.)




Did I mention that my phone died in New York City and with it, all my pictures from Boston, Newport and NYC?  

So, I'm playing with my new one.  Yes....I went to the Dark Side.  I contributed to the Steve Jobs foundation.  Little Juvat having advised me there was an app that would allow us to communicate directly from his new duty station.

So, my photographic talents still need practice.  Yes, that is my stockinged foot, a glass of single malt scotch and a marshmallow roaster.  My blood sugar was not within acceptable parameters the following morning.  Mea Culpa!

Tuesday, Little Juvat and DIL and my Granddog, Tex, loaded up and drove to Houston.  Wednesday, they blasted off for the Sandbox. Thursday we get confirmation that all had arrived safely.


Tex, resting comfortably on the cool quiet floor of their apartment.
So, that change in course succeeded.

Meanwhile back at the ranch, Mrs J's change in course is a bit more convoluted.  We have to move out of her store.

Did I mention I LOATHE moving?  I've moved (defined as changing zip codes for mailing address) something like 50 times in my life.  That's a lot, but do you know why I LOATHE moving?

It has precipitated every single time.  




This time was no different.  We knocked off at about 1900 on Tuesday, 2100 on Wednesday  and Mrs J finished up the last load on Thursday AM.  Final Clearance sales cleared out most of the inventory, quite a few of the racks and other equipment went to St Vinny's and most of the rest was donated to a local children's home. 

Some of it however made it home.  Where I'm sure it will mate and reproduce in a manner that will make rabbits blush, consuming all available space in our house.  Millennia from now, archaeologists will discover my remains under it all and say "What a terrible way for a fighter pilot to be buried."

But so it is.

This weekend was our first together in a long time, vacation's excepted.  Suffice it to say we have some adjustments to make.  Our Battle Rhythm is not coordinated yet.

Did I mention that our refrigerator took this moment to croak?  Freezes everything hard as a rock.  Lowes delivered the new one today.  Some genius mis-measured the gap.  Said genius then had to drive back down to Lowes and order another.  This time having measured the gap at least 14 times with Mrs J's supervision on the last 5.  

It'll be delivered on Veterans day.  But the floor it will rest on is clean.

Wednesday, I put my retirement papers in. Crickets......Which is fine by me.  I'll spend the last two months doing what I know needs to be done and training my replacement.  However, I'm not sure she's going to stay either.  She's taken some short notice time offs recently.

Some biblical saying about "reaping what you sow", comes to mind. 

 Friday Night finally arrived and Mrs J, my Sister and I went to "The Club" for a light dinner and some wine.  Rather Nice!

Sarge,  the band was our age, playing 60's and 70's rock.  The Music was great, but the vocalist had a very high pitched voice, almost a falsetto, which detracted.  That having been said, the crowd was entertained and the band had fun.  

Maybe a retirement option, Neh?  Keep up the Drum practice.


So, all in all....The Juvat family got through Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes week with flying colors.

          America, You Need to Meet More Americans      Cache   Translate Page      

These past seven days have followed a similar pattern that plays over and over. Outrage, anger, call for changes, finger pointing and then silence as something else grabs attention and pulls people away.

Ban this! Shut up snowflakes! Lock it all down! We demand change!

The technology we love has made it too easy to scream and thus harder to discuss.

When you are more inclined to only use your thumb to reflect your emotions, you can't use your brain and heart.

I have some very strong beliefs about guns, our kids, teachers, and schools. But, those are not what I want to talk about today.

Do you only have friends who share your exact view?

The problem is that too many of us stay isolated behind our screens. Even as we sit down to dinner or a catch up with our friends, we stare into the black mirror hoping for something more.

Humans like to surround themselves with their tribe. It is how we've found comfort and safety since we took our first steps.

The problem as I see it though is that too many have decided to go down the path of only caring about their tribe. If thoughts or people are different than that tribe than they must be wrong. We can't listen to others because they are not the same as us.

One of my recent lectures was on protectionism and how it affects business. Watch the masterpiece Black Panther and you'll see it debated on the big screen.

Protecting what you know and love makes sense. It is important.

But, what I keep seeing people forget is that America is one country full of different beliefs.

What I fear is that too many of us are not going beyond our front porches.

Instead of yelling from the extreme edges, wouldn't it be more productive to sit down and talk with those who have different opinions than you?

My life has exposed me to all sort of people. I've visited all but seven States and in each, I've had the pleasure of sitting down and getting to know people from all walks of life.

I often laugh and shake my head scrolling through my Facebook feed as I wonder what it would be like to connect some of my friends there who are polar opposites. Not connect them on Facebook, but over some steak and bourbon at my house.

To sit down and while the time ticked away actually talk about the things we scream about.

Not enough of us, know our own country. We assume to know everything we need to know and that is utter bullshit.

I watched last year as a friend in Texas helped the police patrol and rescue people after the hurricane hit Houston. He and his friends on their own dime brought a boat there and were saving people. They also all were strapped with "assault rifles" and were ready to use them if they needed.

How many of you were full of emotions at the beginning of that story and then turned to anger? That is the problem.

On the flipside, I was told at the end of an event I attended a few years ago, that my presence had worried a bunch of attendees because I was "a liberal writer from New England" and they assumed we wouldn't get along and that I'd be against everything they believed.

Unless we are talking about brownies, the edges suck without the middle.

So many issues in this great country of ours could start making progress towards meaningful change if more Americans got away from their screens and got out to meet people around them. Move beyond your fenced yard and get to know your neighbors. When you travel, say hi to the people around you and listen to the conversations around you at the local diner.

We need to understand that just because someone looks, acts or believe in different things it does not automatically make someone a bad person.

Being different is celebrated in so many ways and in others, it is ridiculed.

As you bitch and scream about the latest debate online, I encourage you to find someone with different beliefs than you and have an actual conversation. Preferably one that does not involve text, but voices and eye contact.

We are divided as a Country and nothing online is going to help bring us back together.

America, get out there and meet your fellow Americans. We've always been about a unique blend of beliefs and people. It is what makes us great.

Start today with one person. One conversation. If enough Americans got to know other Americans who are different than them, I believe we'd start moving in a better direction.

          Newcomer Abigail Spanberger Takes 7th District Seat from Dave Brat      Cache   Translate Page      
With 99 percent of precincts reporting, Abigail Spanberger, a first-time Democratic candidate for Virginia’s 7th District House of Representatives seat, takes the stage in a Westin Hotel ballroom.

It’s been a long night. By 10 p.m. women abandoned their high heels in favor of stockinged feet on the floor, some of the children sitting near the stage have begun to lose steam, and many sip coffee as they check their phones for returns. But cheers ripple through the crowd every time the giant screens at the front of the room reveal more precincts in Spanberger’s favor, and volunteers lead an enthusiastic sing-along when Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” blares over the speakers.

Around 11:15 p.m., Spanberger’s husband and daughters follow her out and stand behind her among clusters of blue and white balloons as she addresses the jubilant crowd. In the audience are her family (some of whom are Republicans, according to her staff), volunteers, staff, supporters and friends who traveled from as far as Hamburg, Germany. Smiling ear to ear, she waits for the noise to die down before steadily delivering her victory speech.

“I will work to find common ground when possible, and I will hold my ground when necessary,” she tells the roomful of elated supporters. “I will listen to the people who elected me, as well as those who did not.”

Spanberger goes on to describe the 7th as an “unwinnable district,” noting that a Democrat hasn’t held the seat since 1968. As of midnight, Republican incumbent David Brat has not conceded the race. Halfway through her speech, Spanberger bends down to pick up her youngest daughter, who happily sits on her hip, alternating between smiling at the audience and resting her head on her mother’s shoulder.

Adela Parvaiz, a naturalized American citizen from Pakistan who lives in Henrico, says she’d never been politically active until the last two years. The morning after the 2016 presidential election, her then 8-year-old son asked her if their family would have to move back to Pakistan, an interaction she describes as heartbreaking. Spanberger, a good friends of hers, was one of the first to call to check in on her after President Donald Trump was elected.

“Trump’s hateful politics have made us so nervous about who we were. Were we Americans too? We felt loyal, we felt patriotic, we had the passports, but he made us feel like outsiders,” Parvaiz says. “And that’s precisely when Abigail called us.” Parvaiz was one of the first to discuss a potential campaign with Spanberger, and she says she’s on board since day one.

“I want you to know the Abigail that sits with me in my living room having a cup of coffee with me, because what she is on the inside she is on the outside,” Parvaiz says. “When she cries, she cries because she feels your pain. There is no hidden agenda with her.”

At a brief press conference after her speech, Spanberger answers questions about what’s next. She says her first priority is to restore people’s trust in elected officials, and she wants to address campaign finance reform right away.

When asked for comment on whether Brat concedes, Spanberger says he’s “welcome to make whatever decisions he chooses,” and that to her knowledge, her opponent had not yet reached out to her or her campaign.

          Newcomer Abigail Spanberger Takes 7th District Seat from Dave Brat      Cache   Translate Page      
With 99 percent of precincts reporting, Abigail Spanberger, a first-time Democratic candidate for Virginia’s 7th District House of Representatives seat, takes the stage in a Westin Hotel ballroom.

It’s been a long night. By 10 p.m. women abandoned their high heels in favor of stockinged feet on the floor, some of the children sitting near the stage have begun to lose steam, and many sip coffee as they check their phones for returns. But cheers ripple through the crowd every time the giant screens at the front of the room reveal more precincts in Spanberger’s favor, and volunteers lead an enthusiastic sing-along when Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” blares over the speakers.

Around 11:15 p.m., Spanberger’s husband and daughters follow her out and stand behind her among clusters of blue and white balloons as she addresses the jubilant crowd. In the audience are her family (some of whom are Republicans, according to her staff), volunteers, staff, supporters and friends who traveled from as far as Hamburg, Germany. Smiling ear to ear, she waits for the noise to die down before steadily delivering her victory speech.

“I will work to find common ground when possible, and I will hold my ground when necessary,” she tells the roomful of elated supporters. “I will listen to the people who elected me, as well as those who did not.”

Spanberger goes on to describe the 7th as an “unwinnable district,” noting that a Democrat hasn’t held the seat since 1968. As of midnight, Republican incumbent David Brat has not conceded the race. Halfway through her speech, Spanberger bends down to pick up her youngest daughter, who happily sits on her hip, alternating between smiling at the audience and resting her head on her mother’s shoulder.

Adela Parvaiz, a naturalized American citizen from Pakistan who lives in Henrico, says she’d never been politically active until the last two years. The morning after the 2016 presidential election, her then 8-year-old son asked her if their family would have to move back to Pakistan, an interaction she describes as heartbreaking. Spanberger, a good friends of hers, was one of the first to call to check in on her after President Donald Trump was elected.

“Trump’s hateful politics have made us so nervous about who we were. Were we Americans too? We felt loyal, we felt patriotic, we had the passports, but he made us feel like outsiders,” Parvaiz says. “And that’s precisely when Abigail called us.” Parvaiz was one of the first to discuss a potential campaign with Spanberger, and she says she’s on board since day one.

“I want you to know the Abigail that sits with me in my living room having a cup of coffee with me, because what she is on the inside she is on the outside,” Parvaiz says. “When she cries, she cries because she feels your pain. There is no hidden agenda with her.”

At a brief press conference after her speech, Spanberger answers questions about what’s next. She says her first priority is to restore people’s trust in elected officials, and she wants to address campaign finance reform right away.

When asked for comment on whether Brat concedes, Spanberger says he’s “welcome to make whatever decisions he chooses,” and that to her knowledge, her opponent had not yet reached out to her or her campaign.

___
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.

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.
____

23:20


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.<
