          Oakland Raiders 2018/19 Week 08      Cache   Translate Page      


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



Oakland Raiders - Indianapolis Colts 28:42

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

          What's Happening With Florida Today? Plus-- A Note From Matt Haggman      Cache   Translate Page      

Politico: "The general consensus among Republicans is that they will lose the House, and end up in at least a five-seat minority-- that would correspond to a 28-seat loss. Senior Republicans tell us that even in a worst-case scenario, they do not expect to lose 40 seats. A prescient prediction or famous last words?"

Of all the senior Republican lawmakers they spoke with over the weekend, "only one made the case that the GOP will keep the House." If it's who I think it was, he was staggering drunk for the entire weekend. Many Republicans expected the House races to tighten up by election day. Instead the generic ballot polls have gotten even worse for them. The last one for CNN by SSRS shows an absolutely massive 55% to 42% preference for Democrats among likely voters. As I've said before, the pollsters' likely vote modeling is wrong because it is not taking increased Latino and millennial voting into account. Polls predicting less than 30 flipped seats will all be off by as much as 100% tonight.




Let's look at Florida. Yesterday's Marist poll shows Andrew Gillum leading Ron DeSantis in the gubernatorial race-- 50% to 46%-- and Bill Nelson leading Scott in the Senate race by the same 50% to 46%. Democrats are very lucky to have Gillum at the head of the ticket instead of dull conservative Gwen Graham, who had been the establishment candidate and who would have dragged the party down the toilet with her. But it's a shame Florida doesn't have any good congressional candidates who could ride the wave and Andrew's coattails into office. Instead, it's a bunch of DCCC-recruited backs from the Republican wing of the party-- New Dems and Blue Dogs. This is the key today: "Democrats in both races are performing better than their Republican counterparts with likely voters who are independents, minorities and women."


Stoking domestic terrorism goes over especially badly with independent voters

Results from Quinnipiac are nearly identical: seven point leads for both Gillum and Nelson, entirely because of double-digit leads for both among women, minorities and independent voters. Writing Sunday for the Miami Herald Steve Bousquet reported on the surge in early voting for Democrats. On Sunday, "Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Hillsborough and Orange, the five biggest 'blue' counties, all reported their highest one-day early voting totals of the 2018 campaign. As a result, on a day when President Donald Trump rallied thousands of Republicans in Pensacola, the GOP’s ballot advantage over the Democrats shrank to six-tenths of 1 percentage point (0.6), with GOP ballots at 40.8 percent of the statewide total and Democrats at 40.2 percent." By Monday morning Dems had a +0.5% lead over Republicans in ballots cast. In 2014 Republicans held almost a 6% lead over Dems going into election day.

So how many Democratic candidates will Gillum's coattails and the anti-red wave drag to victory in Florida today? Most of the candidates are so terrible that it's hard to say-- but even the worst of them are less horrible than the Republicans they're opposing. Donna Shalala, as bad a candidate as you'll find anywhere, will probably beat Maria Salazar in bright blue FL-27 (PVI- D+5) despite herself. Nate Silver gives her a 6 in 7 chance to win (84.7%). Next door in Carlos Curbelo's district (FL-26-- where the DCCC and Pelosi's PAC have spent $7,175,066 attacking Curbelo-- another weak Democrat, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell looks like she'll take the seat (PVI is D+6). Silver gives her a 5 in 9 chance (55.6%). The other Republican-held Miami-Dade seat, Mario Diaz-Balart's 25th district (PVI- R+4) has the best of the 3 Democratic challengers, Mary Barzee Flores, but in the toughest race. Silver gives her a 2 in 7 chance (27.8%) to beat Diaz-Balart. The wave will have had to have turned into a tsunami tonight for her to win.




Silver gives Wasserman Schultz a 99.9% chance of retaining her seat in a 3-way contest against progressive Tim Canova and some Republican sacrificial lamb, more or less the same chance Joe Crowley had in beating Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The only polling in the district-- by a GOP firm-- shows Wasserman Schultz exactly tied with Canova.

The DCCC has 4 other Democratic candidates on their Red to Blue page-- Nancy Soderberg (FL-06, Ron DiSantis' open seat with an R+7 PVI), Kristen Carlsen (FL-15, Dennis Ross' open seat stretching from the Tampa suburbs to the Orlando area with an R+6 PVI), David Shapiro (FL-16, Vern Buchanan's Sarasota, Bradenton seat with an R+7 PVI) and Lauren Baer (FL-18, Brian Mast's Treasure Coast district with an R+5 PVI). Silver doesn't give any of them much of a chance to win. Soderberg 1 in 4, Carlsen 3 in 7, Shapiro 1 in 7, and Baer 1 in 12. Soderberg, Baer and Shapiro (as well as Mucarsel-Powell) are all New Dems. The 2 Florida candidates in red districts with the best shot are 2 normal Dems, Kristen Carlsen and Mary Barzee Flores. The DCCC has spent modestly in a few of the races-- $499,932 in FL-06, $146,362 in FL-16, $868,290 in FL-18, and $694,360 in FL-15
.




Matt Haggman is one of the progressive Democrats Blue America endorsed this cycle but who didn't win his primary, losing out, in this case, to an establishment nothing with lots of name recognition and money but with nothing to offer the voters except that she's not a Trumpist. Tragic waste of a blue seat but Matt has been good sport about it, endorsed her and has been working to help elect her. He agreed to catch us up on what he's been up to down in South Florida. He reiterated that "This is the most important mid-term election in our lifetimes. It’s a moment when we will decide as a country who we are and who we are not. Here in Florida I have been working to help Andrew Gillum, Donna Shalala, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, Mary Barzee Flores and Bill Nelson all win. Just this weekend I was out canvassing. But, before this, I was a candidate. I was one of the many across the country who left good jobs to up and run for Congress following the 2016 presidential election. For me, it didn’t go as hoped. I lost to Donna Shalala in Florida’s Congressional District 27. Howie asked that I share a blog post I wrote in the weeks after the Aug. 28 Florida primary. It’s a reminder of the reasons why this mid-term is so important. Why each of us can have a big impact even if we’re not on the ballot. And why, whether a candidate or supporter, we must do all we can to ensure everyone gets out to vote this Election Day to turn a new page in our politics."

Until Next Time, Thank you

It’s been a few weeks since the primary election. Obviously, for me, it was a disappointment. But the many great wishes since election night from friends and supporters has been wonderful. I wanted to write a post and say thank you. And also reflect a bit on the past 13 months campaigning for US Congress.

Before doing that, I again congratulate Donna Shalala on her victory. This is a moment in our politics that is bigger than any individual and it’s critical that the Democratic party take control of the U.S. House of Representatives. We must unite behind her. In addition, we have to elect Andrew Gillum as our next Governor! His campaign has energized us all, and it’s time to bring it home.

Looking back on the primary, my overriding feeling is gratitude. I’m extremely thankful to my wife Danet, who supported me in this effort, and thankful to all of the people who propelled our campaign--  the volunteers, fellows, staff, donors and, ultimately, voters. I had never run for any elected office, yet so many went all-in supporting our campaign. Thank you very, very much.

Our fellows were, in particular, an inspiration to me. We recruited more than 50. Most were in college, some still in high school. Working on the campaign after class or full-time during summer break. Weekends, nights. Calling voters, knocking on doors. They were passionate and dedicated. Now, they are back on campus. At schools from Miami Dade College and Michigan to Boston University and Palmetto Senior High School. At a time when our political system badly needs a reset, they showed what it means to take hold of our democracy. With them, our future is so blazingly bright.

Along with our fellows, what I loved about being a candidate was talking with voters and being out in the community. I loved it. Going door to door on sweltering summer afternoons in Kendall, or Little Havana, or Richmond Heights. Evenings canvassing in Westchester or Palmetto Bay. Unfiltered and alone, it was just us; talking about our community and country. On those days and nights there was no place I would rather be.

Life revealed itself in its many forms on these unannounced visits. The couple celebrating their daughter who was headed to college. The single mom working three jobs to keep current on her mortgage. The middle-aged woman who tried to chat amiably but, after a time, couldn’t hold it back any longer, sharing that she’d just been diagnosed with cancer. “I need a hug,” she said, a tear running down her cheek, which she quickly and defiantly wiped away.

The conversations were always so real--  standing at front doors, sitting in living rooms, meeting people where they are, learning about their hopes and concerns, aspirations and struggles. At a time when Washington has so fundamentally and collectively lost its way, at the grassroots people are making sense. We need to spend more time listening to them.

Indeed, throughout the campaign I often said the best ideas come from the community, not candidates. I really meant it. Change happens from the ground up, and that’s never been more true than today. From start to finish, our campaign sought to stay true to that ethos. Namely, we focused on voters, rather than cutting down competitors as a means to win.

We visited every precinct, we knocked on some 45,000 doors. Again and again, I found a sincerity, thoughtfulness and a belief that things will get better. I always thought we lived in a special community, but over the last year I’ve vividly seen it with my own eyes in one neighborhood after another. Those thousands of conversations leave me today more hopeful and optimistic than ever.

If only our politics can be as good as them. I think it can, but we are going to have to change in big ways.

To me, election night 2016 was a shattering moment--  and it’s what ultimately prompted me to run. I had believed that America would never elect a person who said and did the things that Donald Trump said and did. I believed that America today would never elect a bully, a liar, someone who preyed upon our worst fears and sought to divide us to win support. We might come close to electing such a demagogue, but at this stage in our country’s history we would never actually do it. I was obviously wrong.

The better angels of our nature had given way to our most base sensibilities. A presidency built on hope was followed by one grounded in our worst fears.

In early January, as President Obama prepared to leave office, he gave his farewell address, warning that we can’t take democracy for granted. That it “falls on each of us to be anxious, jealous guardians of our democracy.” What the speech said to me is that, yes, America is a special place. But it’s only special because generation after generation has continually engaged in making it so--  even as there are setbacks, sometimes dramatic setbacks, along the way.

Then, at Danet’s urging, on January 21st we attended the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. My sister Meghan and our friend Lissette went too. It was an extraordinary day as millions around the world rose up. It was there that I thought to myself that this remarkable moment of protest must also be a moment of real and lasting change--  and wondered how to try and live that. It was there that I decided to run.

The reason I decided to drop everything, leave my job at Knight Foundation and do something I’d never done before was because I believed we were--  and are--  at a pivotal moment. This is not a normal election year.

I firmly believe that years from now people will ask about this time, what did we do?

What did we do when a President--  along with a compliant Republican-controlled Congress--  called for border walls, Muslim bans, tore thousands of immigrant children from their parents, bowed to a foreign power that meddled in our election, sympathized with neo-Nazis, sought to use law enforcement as a means to settle political scores, and declared the press an enemy of the state.

This election is our moment to reaffirm and declare who we are-- and who we are not--  as a country.

But, in doing so, we have to realize that this election is about what’s next. It can’t just be about what we’re against, but it has to be about what we’re for. Indeed, while Donald Trump has contributed much to our dysfunctional politics, the truth is that he’s the result of a dysfunctional system that has been spiraling for some time.

We are only going to achieve the change we need if we dispense with the incrementalism that has defined our politics for so long and think--  and do--  in dramatic new ways. And allow new leaders to emerge in a political system that’s long become stuck.

Put another way, it’s a two-part challenge: ensure that today does not become the new normal, and provide a vision for what tomorrow will look like. With that in mind, we sought to run a campaign that actually represented the change we seek.

At a time when money is undermining our democracy, we didn’t accept any funding from political action committees, federal lobbyists or special interests like big sugar.

At a time when so many have given up on politics, our campaign was powered by extraordinary campaign fellows who were the heart and soul of our effort.

At a time when so many are disconnected from our government, we built a field program that sought to personally engage voters in every neighborhood in every part of the district.

At a time when the leadership in Congress hasn’t changed in years, we called for an entirely new slate of people in leadership roles in the House. The new faces in the next Congress must not be just newly elected members, but the leaders at the top too.

Of course, our efforts did not result in a victory. But I have no regrets. After all, this is a moment to take chances. And throughout my life I’ve always sought to take chances by diving into entirely new things; and going all-in when I do.

Whether it was going to New Orleans to write a biography on Professor Longhair (still unfinished). Or moving to Miami-- where I didn’t know a soul (but met my soulmate)--  to become a journalist (where I had a great run that lasted nearly a decade). Or leaving the Miami Herald to join Knight Foundation (where I had an even better run), in which I launched an entirely new program that planted the seeds and propelled Miami’s rapidly emerging startup and entrepreneurial community.

I want to stretch myself, test boundaries and be willing to do entirely new things. Incumbent to that approach will be wins and losses. It’s the in-between that I want to avoid.

Make no mistake, I dearly wish I was part of the Blue Wave at this critical point in our country’s history. But I’m not. This moment belongs to candidates with names like Gillum, O’Rourke, Pressley, Lamb, Ocasio-Cortez, and so many others. I will be cheering every one of them on, and support in any way I can. We need them to win and be good leaders when a new Congress is sworn in in January.

And, each in our own way, we all need to lean in and help. The moment is too important. The challenges are too great. The stakes too high. No one can sit this out.

So what’s next? The short answer is, I don’t know.

I do know that I have many people to thank. I remember when I decided to run, a friend advised that people look at you differently when you’re a political candidate. He cautioned that you’ll be disappointed by friends you thought would be there. But he also said you’ll be surprised by the support from those you didn’t know before or never expected. Focus and delight in the latter, he said. And I will.

(One quick note: Danet and I took some time away after the election. If you haven’t heard from me yet, you’ll be hearing from me soon.)

After such an all-consuming period I also have many friendships to renew, which I am looking forward to doing.

Life is about chapters and seasons. The thing about political campaigns is the chapter ends so suddenly. After such an intense period, it’s quickly and suddenly over. It’s a crash landing. But a new chapter begins. There is power in blank canvases. I’ve experienced it before. It’s at moments like these when you can edit your life and think completely anew. It’s often at these moments when the unimagined happens, when you follow completely new paths and find unexpected success.

I have no idea what this next chapter will bring, but I’m excited to find out.

After the race, I spoke with Reggie, who is a great friend and the father of Joshua, my little through Big Brother Big Sister for more than a decade. Reggie said to me: “You gotta keep pressing on my man. It’s all good.”

That pretty much says it all. Keep pressing on.

          Bombay and Bowring stores to close as company drowns in debt      Cache   Translate Page      

Bye bye, Bowring Brothers and the Bombay Company. Bankruptcy sucks.

Two of what were once ubiquitous home decor chains in Canada are reportedly moving into liquidation mode after their Brampton-based parent company filed for creditor protection.

Fluid Brands Inc., owned by GTA retail mogul Fred Benitah, is more than $50 million in debt, according to legal filings.

Hundreds of local businesses—printers, photographers, office suppliers, shipping, cleaning, delivery and packaging companies—appear on a list of creditors for the company, many of them owed 10s, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Benitah purchased the Newfoundland-born Bowring as an insolvent company in 2005. Prior to this, it had been operating since 1811 with hundreds of gift shops in Canada at its peak.

The Canadian arm of Bombay and Company, founded in New Orleans circa 1978, had some 55 furniture stores across the country as of 2014.

Both chains filed for bankruptcy protection that year, but an Ontario judge allowed Fluid Brands to work on a new business plan (under court supervision) in the hopes that its owners could reverse their losses.

As it stands now, websites for both brands have been scrubbed and their social media handles deleted.

CTV News reports that closures are expected — an assertion that seems to be supported by the number of Bombay and Bowring ​​​warehouse sales right now.


          New Orleans Archdiocese: 57 clergy have credible claims of sexual abuse of minors       Cache   Translate Page      


'I believe it is the right thing to do … in the pursuit of justice,' Archbishop Gregory Aymond says

►LIST: 57 members of the clergy who face credible claims of sexual abuse of minors




NEW ORLEANS - The Archdiocese of New Orleans on Friday identified 57 priests and deacons it said have faced credible claims of sexual abuse of minors in recent decades.

The clergy were identified in a list Archbishop Gregory Aymond released as the church sex abuse scandal recently made news across the country and in New Orleans.

In a letter he released Friday morning, Aymond said he received calls both urging him to release the list and to keep it private. “I believe it is the right thing to do in order to foster the healing of victims, in a spirit of transparency, and in the pursuit of justice,” the letter reads.

The list is 10 pages long and included recent allegations as well as one as far back as 1917.

It included four categories:

-The names of Archdiocese of New Orleans clergy who are alive and have been accused of sexually abusing a minor which led to their removal from ministry. In each case, the cleric remains out of ministry.

-The names of Archdiocese of New Orleans clergy who are deceased and who admitted or have been publicly accused of sexually abusing a minor.

-The names of religious order priests who were serving in the Archdiocese of New Orleans at the time of the allegation and the archdiocese was notified of the allegation. The investigation and final disposition of the allegation was the responsibility of the religious order.

-Religious order priests taken out of ministry by the Archbishop of New Orleans in 2002, even though the abuse was not alleged to have occurred in the Archdiocese of New Orleans.

In his letter, Aymond said a team of more than 10 men and women that included staff and outside lawyers reviewed the files of 2,432 priests who have served in the in the archdiocese since 1950.



Aymond wrote that for those clergy who have died, a “very careful examination” took place “in order to justify” identifying the person publicly. More recent cases were presented to the Archdiocesan Review Board, which is made up of lay experts who review each case.


“The entire list has been given to the Orleans Parish District Attorney and will be made available to any other District Attorney,” Aymond wrote.

Ken Daley, a spokesperson for the Orleans Parish District Attorney's Office, released the following statement about the release of the diocese list:

"The District Attorney’s office has received today’s disclosure by the New Orleans diocese of the names of church officials and employees against whom allegations of sexual assault have been made. As always, we stand ready to evaluate for possible prosecution any cases brought to us after investigations are completed by the New Orleans Police Department."

The list was released after recent headlines about a George Brignac, a former deacon accused of raping one boy and sexually assaulting another decades ago, who was allowed to remain a lector at St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church after the archdiocese settled with one of his victims for $500,000.

News of another major settlement that preceded the release came to light after Richard Windmann told The New Orleans Advocate about being sexually assaulted and raped as a boy in the 1970s by a janitor at Jesuit High School. Windmann, who lived in Mid-City but was not a student at Jesuit, received $450,000 from the school.

Aymond first said during an interview in September that his office was trying to determine if releasing a list of credible claims was feasible. Weeks later, he said he hoped to do so sooner, rather than later.

“We have done our very best to make this report as accurate and complete as possible,” Aymond wrote in his letter on Friday. “If necessary, the list will be updated if other cases are presented.”

The first major child abuse scandal happened in the 1980s when Lafayette priest Gilbert Gauthe was convicted of sexually abusing as many as 39 children in several parishes.

While that was the first major case to be made public, accusations against members of the clergy date back years before that. But under former New Orleans Archbishop Philip Hannan, the local church had no formal process for handling allegations against the clergy.

In 1991, however, allegations of sexual abuse against Dino Cinel surfaced. In the rectory of St. Rita Catholic Church where he lived, a fellow priest discovered a collection of child pornography and videotapes Cinel filmed of himself having sex with young men.

It took years to bring Cinel to trial, where he was acquitted.

In 1993, then-Archbishop Francis Schulte took the first step toward announcing protocols for handling allegations of sexual abuse of children by priests.

He named a board of lay people to investigate allegations, but it later came to light that the criteria were so restrictive that no cases were ever addressed.

Then, three days after Alfred Hughes was installed as archbishop, The Boston Globe published its explosive investigation into sexual abuse and its cover-up in Boston.

Hughes, who served as Cardinal Bernard Law’s right-hand man, was called to testify before a grand jury. He said he did not know of any instances of bishops obstructing justice.

Prompted in part by the scandal in Boston, Hughes established a board of review in New Orleans. He said it had reviewed the files of 1,000 clergymen going back 50 years and found allegations against nearly a dozen of them to be credible.

The archdiocese did not disclose names or details, but there were settlements -- a sign that the church was trying to repair the damage.

Hughes established new protocols for handling allegations and suspended or removed several priests from ministry. Still, there was criticism after some cases were handled without public knowledge.

Those same criticisms have popped up again after the recent revelations about previously-unannounced settlements.

Aymond wrote that anyone who wants to speak about someone not on the list should call Victims Assistance Coordinator Br. Stephan Synan at (504) 522-5019.

At South Building, Convention Centre

Thousands of spiritual delegates came from around the world to attend the Parliament of World Religions.  I met a small percentage at the booth/exhibit areas, casually in one of the many corridors, or directly off the stage and podium from where they made a presentation.  There are Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, Christians, Baha’is, Indigenous Spiritualists, and everything in between and beyond.  Diverse styles of dress, life and beliefs make the event a potpourri of people—a sophisticated Kumbha Mela, perhaps.  There are certainly a lot of swamis around, most of whom put palms together in the pranams position upon seeing each other, myself included.  One of them was most eager for me to come to his pravachan—talk.

“I have one coming up too, if you’re interested,” I said as a mutual invitation.

However, my presentation, or talk, was a brief enough one, complemented by Michael Oesch’s film, “The Walking Monk,” and a Q and A session.  The room, 710, in the South Building, became occupied in no time.  People seem interested in the topic, “Finding Time for Pilgrimage.”

The questions flowed, and answers too.  Comments did the same.  One man from New Orleans relayed that he had walked the famous Camino in Spain. It was a life-reassuring experience. In general, the audience appeared to value a walking culture, the simplicity behind it and the penetration of thought that rolls out with it.  I was on Cloud Nine.

Looking for an alternative to Publix for bakery and deli custom-ordered items.

I plan an annual alumni party at a conference that changes location every year, and this year it's in New Orleans, a city I'm not very familiar with. One of the options I have for a venue is a nice-looking bar (The Rusty Nail) which will let me bring in food (much cheaper than catering). This past year I did something similar and got food from Publix which was surprisingly nice for "catering" from a grocery store. Google tells me there are no Publix in New Orleans. Is there a similar-quality grocery store from which I can order bakery and deli items custom-made to be picked up? Or, a catering company that isn't crazy pricey? Thanks for any recommendations!

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



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2 . Giới Trẻ tích cực ra tranh cử:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

3. Vai trò của Cử Tri:

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

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

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

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

Thứ Hai, ngày 05 tháng 11 năm 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          ESKIMOS OUSTER PROMPTS CALLS FOR PLAYOFF FORMAT CHANGE      Cache   Translate Page      
The fate of a fifth-place team was not top of mind when the CFL created its crossover rule more than two decades ago. It's something the league may want to consider for the future.

The rule gives a fourth-place team a crossover playoff spot when the club finishes with more points than the third-place team in the other division. It happened again this year when the B.C. Lions (9-9) finished with a better record than the 5-13 Montreal Alouettes, who were third in the East.

However, for the first time in the rule's history, the Edmonton Eskimos - who were at the bottom of the five-team West at 9-9 - missed the playoffs despite owning a better record than both the Alouettes and the East's second-place team, the 8-10 Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Unfortunately for the Eskimos, there is no provision for when the five teams in the West have better records than all but the first-place team in the East. As a result, Edmonton will be on the outside looking in when the post-season kicks off this weekend.

"We will continue to look at this issue and we're always open to new ideas,'' CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie said in an email. "But the East-West format has deep roots in our league going back decades and there is the potential to enhance it in the years ahead if the dream of a coast-to-coast CFL becomes reality and we add a 10th team in Halifax, providing us with balanced five-team divisions.''

This is the fourth time the crossover has been needed in the last five years.

Since the rule made its debut in 1996, there have been 10 seasons where the West has had five teams and this unique scenario has even been possible. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have had to move back to the East at times to fill vacancies when Ottawa hasn't had a team in the league.

It can be tough to ensure playoff balance in a nine-team league, especially in a year when one division is far superior to the other. The crossover rule was implemented to try to maximize meaningful and competitive games down the stretch and to reward the better teams with playoff spots. The crossover team never has advanced to the Grey Cup, though.

"I love the way they're doing it,'' TSN broadcaster and former CFL star Milt Stegall said from Atlanta. "I think the pros outweigh the cons, it adds some intrigue.''

The West Division, led by the 13-5 Calgary Stampeders, did not have a club with a losing record while the four-team East had just one squad - the 11-7 Ottawa Redblacks - finish above the .500 mark. Hamilton, Montreal and the 4-14 Toronto Argonauts were all well behind.

The Lions and Eskimos both finished with 18 points, but B.C. won the season series over Edmonton to secure the final West playoff spot.

Proponents of adding a fifth playoff team out of the West could argue the Redblacks should qualify out of the East and that all five West clubs should be rewarded for their records. In such a scenario, divisional winners could get regular first-round byes but the No. 2 team would host the No. 5 club in the West while the No. 3 team welcomes the fourth-place side.

Such a change would also eliminate a regular gripe about the crossover rule: that the fourth-place team has to travel for the division semifinal even if that club owns a better record than its opponent.

This year, B.C. has to make the cross-country jaunt to Hamilton to play outdoors at Tim Hortons Field rather than in the cosy confines of BC Place. If the Lions win, they likely would return home for a few days before making another long trip to Ontario for the East final against Ottawa.

Another option would be to get rid of the divisional playoff structure altogether and simply seed the top six teams at season's end. Seeds No. 3 through No. 6 could play off to set up league semifinals against the top two seeds and the winners would advance to the Grey Cup.

The NHL did something similar for a couple years by seeding the top 16 teams for first-round matchups before switching to a divisional playoff structure in 1982.

CFL purists often point to the history of the East versus West playdowns as a reason to eschew further change.

However, that tradition was essentially upended when the crossover was introduced. After all, the Vancouver-based Lions are two wins away from being crowned East Division champions.

A crossover rule explainer note on the CFL website points out that the format keeps the entire league competitive, rewards the top six teams with playoff berths and is sensitive to the East-West rivalry. But there is no mention of the scenario that the league finds itself in now, where a fifth-place team in the West has a better record than the second-place team in the East.

"I feel like we're as good as anybody, I really do,'' Eskimos head coach Jason Maas said at his season-ending availability. "I know our record doesn't necessarily prove that, except that there are two playoffs teams with the same record and a lesser record in the playoffs right now.''

South of the border, the NFL has had similar situations where underperforming teams were given playoff spots ahead of clubs with better records.

In 2010, the Seattle Seahawks won their division with a 7-9 record and hosted a playoff game against the 11-5 New Orleans Saints while two 10-6 teams missed the post-season. Four years later, the Carolina Panthers took their division crown with a 7-8-1 mark while the 10-6 Philadelphia Eagles missed the playoff cut.

The Canadian university football playoff structure is far from perfect too. A pair of 2-6 teams - Sherbrooke and McGill - actually made the Quebec conference playoffs before being blown out last weekend in the opening round.

Recent history suggests that regular-season records don't seem to matter that much once the playoffs begin. The Argonauts won the Grey Cup last fall after a 9-9 campaign while the Redblacks took the 2016 title after an 8-9-1 regular season.

This week's West semifinal pits the 12-6 Saskatchewan Roughriders against the visiting Blue Bombers (10-8). The East and West Finals are set for Nov. 18 and the Grey Cup goes Nov. 25 at Edmonton's Commonwealth Stadium.

          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.

          Comment on Every Vote Counts by Richard      Cache   Translate Page      
Ellen Kessler sent the following tribute she wrote about Rose Mallinger (97 year old who died in the Pittsburgh killings): When one hears of mass killings, one’s heart aches for the victims and one’s brain reacts vigorously to yet another horror. We never do forget, but after a while, we become somewhat desensitized to the pain and shock that real lives were destroyed in our country. When I heard of the murders in a Squirrel Hill synagogue, I felt initially the usual disbelief, horror, and pain, but this was different because I had lived in Squirrel Hill. And when I realized that I knew and cared deeply about two of the victims, I was overwhelmed in a new and awful way. Rose Mallinger, the 97 year old murdered victim, and her 62 year old daughter, Andrea, had been caring and loving friends of mine. We lived in Pittsburgh from 1970 through 1973, and the Mallingers had been neighbors of ours. The family lived in a two-family house and Sylvia Moidel, Rose’s sister, lived in the other half with her family. Both families had teenaged daughters who baby-sat for my three daughters, ages 4, 2 and an infant. We had been living for a year in Miami near my parents and my extended family, and moved to Pittsburgh where the weather was freezing, the skies were gray, we knew no one, and everything seemed smoky and dark. I was in my twenties and my husband, who had a new job, was working hard, 7 days a week, early morning to evening. The children missed my parents and so did I. It was a hard time for me. Rose and her sister and their daughters reached out to us with kindness and affection, and they were the first hint to us that Pittsburgh and Squirrel Hill were great places to live. Rose had a birthday party for one of my girls and when our baby-sitters were with the children, they would often take them across the street to visit with their families, making them and us a part of their lives. I never saw Rose without a smile on her face. We cared so much about them. After Pittsburgh, we moved to four cities in the next 7 years, and we lost touch with our dear friends in Squirrel Hill. When I met Toby Schaeffer in New Orleans, we made the Pittsburgh connection: Toby was niece of Rose and Sylvia. Through Toby, we restored contact briefly but then, life moved on. Toby would update us periodically; not surprisingly, she loved and admired these wonderful people. She explained that Rose was vigorous and aware of everything, hard to believe that at 97. Now she reports that Andrea, Rose’s daughter who was also shot on Saturday, was hospitalized and needs another surgery but should recover. I wonder if the grief from losing her mother will retard her recovery--I hope not. I mourn with everyone the desecration and destruction that this anti-Semite brought to Tree of Life synagogue and its people, and I share the anxiety of us all about the apparent rise of anti-Semitism in our country. I again deplore this violence--here, in South Carolina, and everywhere-- and I grieve with everyone about the apparent corrosion of our country. Still, the incident is more than all of those because I and my family lost a friend. May her memory be a blessing to us all.

          My Father Sings . . . The Battle of New Orleans      Cache   Translate Page      
Here's a favorite Saturday night sing-along: my brothers and I dancing out the running through brambles and bushes where a rabbit couldn't go, high-stepping with the bloody British, and slapping our own tails while jumping with the 'gator that lost his mind.  We played all the parts.

My idea of America has always included the scrappy backwoods underdog chasing the top-lofty redcoats of the world's mightiest empire.  Sometimes we get so turned around, though, are we the evil empire now?  is the rebel cause or the resistance the cause of right? Are the redcoats red hats or the other way around? We keep playing all the parts,  the good, the bad, the ugly. But there are more parts we can play.

Maybe because I've grown up on the songs my Dad sings, I still have faith in the plucky common sense and deep-down courage of my country to see the light, to make the change, to do the right thing, to hold fire 'til we can see the problem right in the eyes. We've done it before. We'll do it again.

Go vote.

In 1814 we took a little trip
Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip.
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
And we caught the bloody British in the town of New Orleans.

We fired our guns and the British kept a-comin'.
There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

We looked down the river and we seed the British come
And there must have been a hundred of 'em beatin' on the drum.
They stepped so high and they made their bugles ring.
We stood behind our cotton bales and didn't say a thing.

We fired our guns and the British kept a-comin'.
There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

Old Hickory said we could take 'em by surprise,
If we didn't fire our muskets till we looked 'em in the eyes.
We held our fire till we seed their faces well,
Then we opened up our squirrel guns and gave 'em . . . Well, we

Fired our guns and the British kept a-comin'.
There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

Yeah, they ran through the briers and they ran through the brambles
And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go.
They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

We fired our cannon till the barrel melted down,
So we grabbed an alligator and we fought another round.
We filled his head with cannonballs 'n' powdered his behind
And when we touched the powder off, the gator lost his mind --

We fired our guns and the British kept a-comin'.
There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

Yeah, they ran through the briers and they ran through the brambles
And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go.
They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

Steve Goodman wrote this song, but Dad says Arlo Guthrie sings it better. When Dad sings it, there's usually a catch and repeat at "I'll be gone -- I'll be gone -- I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done, " while Dad reaches for the tricky chord change there.

Riding on the City of New Orleans,
Illinois Central, Monday morning rail,
Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders,
Three conductors and twenty-five sacks of mail.
All along the southbound odyssey:
The train pulled out at Kankakee
And rolls along past houses, farms and fields,
Passin' trains that have no names
And freight yards full of old black men
And the graveyards of the rusted automobiles.
Good morning, America!
How are ya?
Say, don't you know me? I'm your native son.
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
And I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done
Dealin' card games with the old men in the club car,
Penny a point ain't no one keepin' score.
Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle.
Feel the wheels rumblin' 'neath the floor
And the sons of Pullman Porters
And the sons of engineers
Ride their father's magic carpet made of steel.
Mothers with their babes asleep
Are rockin' to the gentle beat
And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel.
Good morning, America!
How are ya?
Say, don't you know me? I'm your native son.
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done
Nighttime on the City of New Orleans:
Changing cars in Memphis, Tennessee,
Half way home, we'll be there by morning
Through the Mississippi darkness,
Rolling down to the sea.
But all the towns and people seem
To fade into a bad dream
And the steel rails still ain't heard the news.
The conductor sings his songs again:
"The passengers will please refrain . . . "
This train has got the disappearing railroad blues.
Good night, America. 
How are you?
Say, don't you know me? I'm your native son.
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

Remarks by Bill Murphy, Chairman
Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Inc.
New Orleans Investment Conference
Friday, November 2, 2018

Thanks for taking the time to come by on a bustling Friday night in New Orleans.

What to bring your way of new interest this year was the most puzzling for me than at any other time over the past two decades when first preparing this presentation. Very little has changed over the past year for the precious metals camp except that The Gold Cartel has stepped up their lockdown of the gold and silver markets in the most forceful of fashions. So I thought it might be best to go over the past years and what it ought to portend in the future for gold/silver investors.

But first a bit of a GATA recap as The Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee was set into motion 20 years ago just about now when my colleague Chris Powell responded to my constant complaining about the manipulation of the gold market by various bullion banks.

... Dispatch continues below ...

Jefferson Financial, promoters of this very conference, had published The Gold Book by my long time friend Frank Veneroso, a consultant to the World Bank and other prestigious organizations. In his book Frank explained that the bullion banks of the world had secretly lent out many thousands of tonnes of physical gold in order to control the gold price. One of his sources for this information was the Bank of England.

Soon after opening my LeMetropoleCafe 20 years ago this past September, the famed hedge fund, Long Term Capital Management, went belly up. They were such a big deal back then their demise threatened the financial system. Mostly because they were short some three or four hundred tonnes of gold (which were lent out to finance other investments) and would have to be covered as part of the liquidation of assets on their books. It then came to my attention that the major bullion banks were collectively selling gold on the Comex to prevent the price from going through $300 an ounce. In essence they were taking the Long Term's gold liability off their books and were making sure they didn't lose money on their new positions. Interestingly enough, the now famous Jim Rickards of the gold world was Long Term's lawyer back then and knows full well what occurred at the time. In addition there were other coinciding events which confirmed the manipulation … Enough to raise a big stink for anyone who could put two and two together.

Anyway, that was two decades ago and my colleague here, Chris Powell, who had become a subscriber to my website, suggested we do something about it. That was how GATA came into being in January of 1999.

What a journey it has been!

We came out of the box on fire.

In February of 1999 I was interviewed by CNBC's Ron Insanna. Course once they heard what GATA had to say that would be the last time we would be on CNBC in the US. In April Dow Jones wrote an extensive story on GATA and presented our views. That was unacceptable to the establishment. How dare they give GATA's discoveries of foul play coverage! Eighteen years later the Wall Street Journal wrote a lengthy front page story about the Fed's gold, but purposely cut GATA completely out of the article, despite lengthy interviews with us.

Then in May of that year I met Congressman James Saxton, head of the Joint Economic Committee, in Washington, who listened intensely. Since then, we met with Speaker of the House at the time, Dennis Hastert. Ironically, he certainly developed a great deal more problems as time passed by than GATA ever had.

Speaker Hastert quickly arranged a meeting with the Subcommittee on Domestic and International Monetary Policy. Over the years ahead we met with very pro-gold advocate Congressman Ron Paul and contacted many other politicians by mail. They all listened intensely. But that is all they did.

Yes, we were off to a very enthusiastic start. Around that time the GATA camp began to contact the gold mining executives to raise funds and garner support. The CEO of Goldcorp, Chris Thompson, sent us $20,000 and we were off to the races. Bobby Godsell, CEO of Anglo-Gold and a major hedger akin to Barrick Gold, was soon shamed to do the same by an ardent GATA follower.

But we soon realized, the task at hand would not be an easy one. We would be taking on the richest and most powerful people in the world. THEY don't like to be messed with and very few people or entities would be willing to take them on. Actually, phrasing it that way is an understatement.

To begin with we soon came to understand the manipulation of the gold market was far larger and more complex than we originally thought. We realized that included in this nefarious activity were other central banks, The Fed, The US Treasury, Exchange Stabilization Fund, and the Bank for International Settlements. AND it included the silver market as well.

How tough would it be to get the gold industry behind GATA to end the price suppression scheme which was hurting THEM so badly?

As far as the gold companies go, this little recap says it all…

* I flew to Vancouver for an arranged meeting Robert Champion de Crespigny, the chairman of Normandy Mining in Australia. After going all that way, he refused to see me.

* The secretary for Newmont Mining's CEO Wayne Murdy returned my email to him saying Newmont never received it. HUH?

* Chris Thompson was to become the CEO of the World Gold Council. When I met him in South Africa at a conference years later, he would not even talk to me.

* And finally Chris, John Embry, and I went to London and met up with the World Gold Council and their new CEO. When we arrived, we had to sign a document that said we were never there. HUH again!

You get the drill. It was going to be an uphill battle recruiting the management of the major gold companies. That said we are very grateful for the financial support we have received from some of the junior/exploration firms.

And, not to be deterred, my colleague CP is making another valiant effort to gain the attention and support of some major gold companies at this very moment.

As far as the politicians go, it is very difficult for them to do anything about the gold price suppression scheme when it is their own government who is responsible for what is going on. The same government which espouses free markets and freedom of speech. Surely part of the rigging scheme is conducted by The Exchange Stabilization Fund. This secretive operation reports only to the President and Secretary of the Treasury and has full, legal authority to do whatever it wishes in the gold and currency markets.

Even the most pro-gold political advocate of all, Congressman Ron Paul will not press very hard about the rigging of the gold price. Chris and I have met him and he is a great guy. But, I will never forget how much work we put into formulating key questions to be asked to a monetary committee way back when, one which was televised. He and his staff requested questions from GATA to be asked. The outspoken congressman just backed down and did not ask one of them.

Then you have the CFTC, the regulatory agency in charge of oversight for the commodities markets. What a farce they are, as most of you know. We have been to Washington and met with them too and then I was able to make a presentation in front of a televised CFTC inquiry into the markets. There were various presentations, all of which were seen by the public. Except mine, which was mysteriously blacked out. You can't make this stuff up, especially when it is all tied together.

The bottom line is this: one of the great lines ever was by Chris when he said the US would rather reveal their nuclear secrets than what they are doing in the gold market. It is that big a deal.

Now, while this has been as frustrating as anything I have taken on in my life, it has been one of the most rewarding experiences imaginable. The people we have met on this journey are the best, some of whom are here now. We have held four international conferences: in Durban, South Africa; Dawson City in the Yukon: right outside of Washington, D.C.; and in London. They all were very successful and the speakers/attendees were awesome.

Yes, while exposing the gold price suppression scheme and making progress to end this rigged farce has been more than aggravating, what we have learned will pay off big time for those who are paying attention. The gold and silver prices have been sent to incredibly low artificial prices. In my opinion the most important thing to know about those prices is that because of what The Gold Cartel has done, they are going to explode in the years ahead.

As a result of The Gold Cartel's antics, numerous investors have fled the sector. Other assets have soared these past many years, while gold and silver have faded and gone nowhere. What should have meant higher prices due to rising budget deficits, surging government debt and zero interest rates have meant nothing.

While gold and silver prices should have taken off, they were battered, and now are incredibly cheap. They should not be here, but they are.

Here is what I think happened over the last 7 plus years.

The Gold Cartel had a plan and this is how they carried it out.

In late 2010 silver began to make its move ... from $16 an ounce to right below $50 at the beginning of May 2011. It was SOME move and IMO engineered by JP Morgan. My colleague CP astutely believes The Gold Cartel wanted to take a more elevated position in the rigging business, but had no physical silver left to help them get the job done. To be fully effective a lousy silver price was needed to confirm a lousy gold price, which is widely regarded as the barometer of US financial market health. As former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker said about gold. "Up is bad, down is good."

So JP Morgan began to buy physical silver, all the way up to the $50 mark. Yes, they were eventually buying high, but that would be insignificant compared to the amount of shorting of derivatives they put on their books as silver was to peak out.

Ted Butler, who covers the silver market thoroughly, is constantly pointing out how JPM took over the short positions of Bear Stearns when that firm blew up. The silver open interest back then in 2008 was around 162,000 contracts. When the silver price began its mega move years later that open interest had fallen to around 133,000 contracts and it was about that level until the very end of the silver move in 2011. It came to my attention after the move that JPM was out of the market. They probably had no short positions, having rid themselves of the Bear Stearns' shorts. Have not heard Ted ever deal with that issue.

So JPM began to sell silver derivatives in size as silver began its approach to $50.

And then they blasted silver for $7 in a day. Stunning. It was some blow to the bull move and it has been downhill ever since. JPM has made a fortune. Yes they bought some now relatively expensive physical silver, but have cleaned up by shorting derivatives at the top of the move in 2011 and ever since then ... many times over their physical holdings. And NOW they had physical silver to belt the price any time they wanted for The Gold Cartel.

That was critical. Mission accomplished.

With JPM (the US Government) having the ability to sell physical silver at will, the price fell below $14 an ounce, below where JPM first took over their short positions from Bear Stearns. And this is key. The silver open interest (the number of longs and shorts in the futures market on the Comex) soared ... to a high of 193,000 for years and then recently it went even more bonkers to 243,000 contracts earlier this year despite the price going into oblivion. This just does not occur in other commodity markets. The norm would be for the open interest to collapse as hedgers on the short side disappear because the prices are too low to hedge and spec longs flee the scene due to lack of interest and expectations. The extraordinarily high silver open interest has been like an anchor around silver's neck for many years now and THE constant sign of excessive suppression.

Interestingly enough, gold did not top out for another six months after silver when it moved above $1900 one month after GATA's London gold conference in August of 2011. A US debt downgrade was the cause for the move of over $250 after our conference. Gold was then blasted lower in the early days of September of that year.

It has been downhill for both metals ever since. Gold and silver could be punished lower in sync now. It seems to me The Gold Cartel forces knew what had to be done to revitalize the US economy and gold and silver had to be put in their place and negate all the fundamental reasons for them to keep going higher by the price action. To repeat, those reasons included enormous budget deficits, soaring government debt, and zero interest rates.

Price action makes market commentary and investors follow suit.

As the years have gone by, interest in the west in the precious metals slowly evaporated.

So here we are, years later, in the weeds. But boy this ought to change in a major league way sometime in the near future.

While gold and silver have remained as dull as dishwater over the past year, the efforts by The Gold Cartel to bury their prices has been as blatant as it could be, or ever has been.

Perhaps the most obvious of all this past year was when gold was blasted done below key support right above $1300 for no apparent reason at all. The whole drill was ludicrous, but fits right into the way The Gold Cartel operates ... one that the financial world refuses to deal with.

Gold fell close to $1160 and then has recovered these last weeks to $1230, which is a ludicrous price relative to the debasement of currencies and financial trauma in the world.

What they have done to the gold price to accomplish their mission is a true farce. Yet what they have done to silver is beyond comprehension and their never-ending capping of any silver price advance has been hideously blatant.

For silver bulls like myself, this is a BIG problem. All the money and power in the world, backed by JP Morgan, says clearly they do not want the price of silver to exhibit any sort of life of other than looking like a nearly dead animal.

Silver is now the cheapest asset on the planet as a result of its manipulation by JP Morgan and The Gold Cartel. What they have done is incredibly obscene and it will end badly for them if they stay the course.

Just recently, GATA supporter James McShirley, a prominent speaker at GATA's 2011 conference in London; lumber company CEO; and highly regarded futures trader, recently noted the following three scenarios for silver:

* If the silver price control is part of a mutually agreed contractual obligation the buyers of physical are getting the deal of a lifetime.

* If the silver price control isn't mutually agreed upon the buyers of physical are still getting the deal of a lifetime, however under hostile circumstances.

* If the silver price control is because of the cartel's total terror of silver getting away from them, and hence gold too then somebody is still getting the deal of a lifetime.

He went on to say. ...

The only question is, whose lifetime? At what point does a massive buyer of silver make their move, and clean up the billions currently there for the taking? In a short squeeze there's no earthly reason why silver couldn't be priced closer to platinum, or even palladium. Daily moves of $10 or more would be more probable that these 1 cent daily comas.

* * *

So well put.

Dealing with the constantly suppressed gold/silver prices while other assets have soared has been tiresome to put it mildly. There was a phrase growing up, "The Seven Year Itch." That is what dealing with the precious metals has felt like the past seven years. Now, after all this time, enough is enough.

The pressures seem to be building within the gold/silver markets to take their prices to much higher levels. Based on what we have seen of late, The Gold Cartel has been as aggressive as ever in stopping price rises. They have pulled out all stops to prevent gold from taking out resistance at $1235 and staying above that key technical level. What they have done to keep silver below the pitifully low $14.70 level is a joke, reported on over and over again in my commentary. Taking out $15 is pivotal for silver, but JP Morgan won't even let it get close to that level.

So why should things change? Increasing inflation pressures due to monetary debasement and stock market turmoil around the world are suddenly attracting investors to the precious metals in the west because they are so artificially cheap, thanks to what The Gold Cartel has done.

The likelihood this Cartel is going to be overpowered by investment demand from around the world is growing ... enough to enforce a major retreat. They certainly are not going away quietly. Over the past months the Commitment of Traders Reports put out by the CFTC revealed the commercials (which includes the Cartel forces) to be as long the futures markets as they have been for decades. Due to the constant interference in the market, the large specs were as short as they ever get. The internet was ripe with calls for short covering squeezes of those spec shorts. Didn't happen. Gold had one unusual 3% rally and then was stuffed. Silver was not allowed to do anything on the upside. It was kept in a tomb, like rarely ever seen in markets. And now the so-called commercials are going heavily short yet again as the specs go long.

For long-suffering and patient precious metals investors this Gold Cartel is going to have to be overpowered, which is just what I believe will occur. Seems to me it is an accident waiting to happen. The tide is going to turn. But the tide ought to look quite a bit different than it did in the years leading up to 2011.

Gold rose 12 years in a row. The Gold Cartel constantly flushed out spec longs in the process, raking in the dough, but the price gradually went higher and higher. But now, after all these years of suppression, we are probably looking at a typhoon instead of a rising tide. The gold price is more than likely going to explode like it did in its blow off top in September of 2011 and keep on going. And it is likely to make new all-time highs sooner than most people think.

The real surprise ought to be moribund silver. I am a big fan of Newton's Law of Equal and Opposite Reactions. As poorly as silver has traded these past years, which has the gold/silver ratio above 84, it should suddenly act that surprisingly well over the coming months. Short term it has to clear $15 to begin its move. But the real key is for its price to take out $21. When done it will be off to the races in a move to $100 an ounce. Seems like a pipe dream after all these crummy years, but it is coming.

As far as GATA goes, we will continue to fight the good fight. Eventually, following severe market turmoil and soaring precious metals prices, the price suppression scandal will break wide open. A decimated investing public will want to know how such a debacle developed the way it did. And the GATA camp will lay it out for them ... in hopes it is not allowed to happen ever again.

Thank you.

Am neunten Spieltag hat es für die bislang ungeschlagenen Los Angeles Rams die erste Pleite der Saison gesetzt. Gegen die New Orleans Saints verlor das Team von Quarterback Jared Goff in einem wahren Spektakel mit 35:45. (SERVICE: NFL-LIVESCORES und die NFL LIVE bei DAZN)

Während die Green Bay Packers am vergangenen Spieltag noch knapp gescheitert waren, gelang den Saints, was gegen die offensiv und defensiv starken Rams lange Zeit kaum für möglich gehalten wurde: ein Sieg.

Es war bereits der achten Erfolg in Serie. Mit einer Bilanz von 8:1 liegen die Saints in der NFC South nun unangefochten an der Spitze. Die Rams rangieren mit ebenfalls acht Siegen und einer Niederlage auf Platz eins der NFC West.

Kamara mit drei Touchdowns

Das Aufeinandertreffen der Franchises hatte bereits im voraus ein Offensiv-Feuerwerk versprochen - beide Teams legten dementsprechend los. Gleich im ersten Viertel durften auf dem Scoreboard drei Touchdowns notiert werden. Zwei aufseiten der Saints, einer für die LA Rams.

Ähnlich furios ging es auch im zweiten Abschnitt weiter. Nach einem Touchdown der Gäste aus Los Angeles legten die Saints vor heimischem Publikum so richtig los und erzielten innerhalb von sieben Minuten drei Touchdowns. 

Überragend agierte dabei vor allem Alvin Kamara. Der 23-jährige Running Back der Saints sicherte sich bis zur Halbzeitpause dreimal sechs Punkte und hatte entscheidenden Anteil am Sieg seiner Franchise. Auch Drew Brees zeigte eine überragende Performance. Mit vier Touchdown-Pässen und 346 Yards agierte der Quarterback-Routinier souverän wie eh und je. 

Rams mit Aufholjagd

Doch trotz des 17:35-Rückstandes zur Pause gaben sich die Rams nicht auf. Und die Bemühungen von Todd Gurley und Co. sollten Wirkung zeigen. Zwei Touchdowns und ein Field Goal später stand auf der Anzeigetafel ein 35:35-Unentschieden. 

In den letzten Minuten wurde es noch einmal besonders spannend. Nach einem erfolgreichen Field Goal hatten die Saints erneut den Ball. Als Spielmacher Brees knapp vier Minuten vor dem Ende zum Wurf ansetzten wollte, folgte die Szene des Spiels. 

Über 72 Yards hinweg fand der Ball Saints-Wide-Receiver Michael Thomas, der diesen zum viel umjubelten Sieg der Hausherren in die Endzone trug. Im Anschluss hatte der Passempfänger einen ganz besonderen Jubel parat: Wie einst Joe Horn 2003 gegen die Giants, jubelte auch Thomas mit einem alten Handy am Ohr.

Irrer Handy-Jubel von Thomas

Der Passempfänger hatte das Gerät bereits vorher unter der Abpolsterung der Torstange platziert und zog es im entscheidenden Moment hervor.

Insgesamt gelangen Thomas zwölf Catches für 211 Yards. Es war das erste Spiel in seiner Karriere, in dem er mehr als 200 Yards für sich verbuchen konnte. Zudem hat noch kein Passempfänger in der Geschichte der Saints jemals mehr Yards in einem Spiel erzielt.

Charger mit nächstem Sieg

Auch die Los Angeles Chargers durften sich am neunten NFL-Spieltag über einen Sieg freuen. Gegen die Seattle Seahawks gelang ein 25:17-Erfolg. Ein souveräner, wenn auch nicht überragender Philip Rivers führte seine Franchise zum fünften Sieg in Serie. In seinem 200. aufeinanderfolgenden Spiel gelangen ihm zwei Touchdowns.

Sein Gegenüber Russel Wilson verbuchte ebenfalls zwei Touchdowns, kassierte jedoch auch eine Interception, die in einem Pick Six mündete.

Hinter den Kansas City Chiefs liegen die Chargers in der AFC West auf Rang zwei, die Seahawks stehen hinter den Los Angeles Rams auf Rang zwei der NFC West.


          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.

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

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

Peterman mit schlechter Leistung

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

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

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

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

Fitzpatrick zaubert bei Niederlage

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

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

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

Jones mit erstem Touchdown der Saison

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

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

Katastrophen-Abend für Darnold

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

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

Alle Ergebnisse im Überblick:

Sonntag, 4. November:

Buffalo Bills - Chicago Bears 9:41

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


(iStock) (gradyreese/iStock)

Does it matter who operates America’s public schools?

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

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

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

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

By Carol Burris and Diane Ravitch

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

From the first recommendation of the report:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Making My Peace with Time: the Song      Cache   Translate Page      
Melinda Palacio

Working on a new song, stay tuned for a video. 

Yesterday, I wrote a new song, my second effort. If this were the fifties I might have a complete 45 record with an A side, "Bird Forgiveness," and a B side, "Making My Peace with Time." I wrote the Bird Forgiveness theme song in March. This is the year I start writing songs. Last November, I started getting serious about playing the guitar and Steve bought me a guitar for my birthday, a beautiful Martin guitar no less. I'm still madly in love with both Steve and this fancy guitar of mine. It's no wonder I finished a new song on Día de Los Muertos. So far, both songs that I've written honor the women who have come before me.

A year ago, the idea of writing a song seemed like someone else's dream, not mine. For two years now, Steve has been telling me that I should write songs because I write poetry and I have a strong interest in music and learning how to play the guitar. Little did I know that learning to play the guitar would also come with learning how to sing and how to write my own songs.

What I've learned about song writing is that you don't know if you can do it until you sit and work with lyrics and add verses and music. Song writing is so much like writing a poem or a novel. A song begins with an idea, maybe even one line and you build around the mood or concept or story. My first song, the Bird Forgiveness theme song, was based on my poem, "What the Birds Know," from my latest poetry book, Bird Forgiveness (3: a Taos Press 2018).



Back in March when I wrote the song, I had that terrible feeling that most new writers have, that I might not be able to write another song, that it was some sort of fluke or accident and the magic of it all had been used up. A little voice inside me lacked the confidence that Steve had in me when he declared I should write songs.

It turns out the very act of doing and writing gives you the tools you need to finish the work. The work, whether a song or poem or story, always gets better with revision. The only way to work in melody and rhythm to your song lyrics is by trial and error, at least, that's how it worked for me. Decide on a key, try singing or humming the lyric, try a chord and if it sounds okay, keep it and move onto the next line or the chorus or bridge. The melody and rhythm determine how the song evolves and part of song writing is truly magic. At least, for my untrained ear and self, song writing involves a leap of faith.

My new song, "Making My Peace with Time" is about acknowledging the years that have been rolling by without my mother who died when she was 44. Now that I'm closer to the age she was when she died, I am at a stage in my life of acceptance. For so many years, I was in a mournful and depressed state. Now I celebrate life, the person my mother was and the woman I have become. 

Go vote!

Next stop on the Bird Forgiveness Tour include: The Louisiana Book Festival, November 10 at the Capitol Welcome Center Glass Room at 12: 15 pm in Baton Rouge and the University of New Orleans, November 14 at 8pm.

          Donald Trump Is Awakening People, Left and Right      Cache   Translate Page      

Aired Tuesday, 6 November 2018, 5:00 PM EST

Donald Trump Is Awakening People, Left and Right

An Interview with Dr. Chuck Baldwin, Moral Majority and Christian Coalition Pioneer, and Constitutional Party Presidential Candidate in 2008

“Either we will have an awakening — or a wake.” — Swami Beyondananda

In the summer of 2015, I was waiting to board the Larkspur Ferry to take me to San Francisco for a Giants game. In the waiting area, there was a huge TV screen tuned to CNN. Donald Trump was on, and the sound was off.

As I watched Trump’s gesticulation, facial expressions, and fist pumping, I looked at a fellow passenger, and we both said it at the same time — Adolf Hitler.

Now more than three years later, I have seen nothing to make me think otherwise. What was clear to me then is even clearer now. What I was looking at was a megalomaniacal sociopath, who would do anything and say anything to benefit himself, and who would ultimately destroy whatever he touched. I saw a pathological liar and demagogue, with no respect for the rule of law — or the rule of love.

While we have seen “dishonest” politicians before, and those involved in deep, dark misdoings, what I was looking at was someone entirely different and more sinister — someone who had the mindset and the chutzpah to make himself dictator. You might laugh at this individual who has been parodied and caricatured as a bumbling fool. They laughed at Hitler too. While Donald Trump is no “Hitler” in the sense that he has no overriding mission or ideology, his rhetoric landed with the same kinds of ordinary folks who supported Hitler.

At the Unrig the System conference in New Orleans this past February, I met a number of (oxymoron alert) “moderate Republicans” who saw the clear and present danger not just in Trump, but in the Vichy Republicans in Congress blindly following him. I met Richard Painter, a former Bush administration official who has officially changed parties and became a Democrat running for the Senate in Minnesota. Since that time he has been joined by Republicans Steve Schmidt and most recently Max Boot, who exhorted moderate Republicans to vote Democrat this year in an attempt to stop that other “boot” — Jack Boot — from having control of all three branches of government and establishing a de facto fascist regime.

Something that has been both puzzling and vexing to most observers, however, is how so many Evangelical Christians have fallen into lockstep behind Trump, despite the man’s — to put it too gently — “moral failings.”

Our guest on Wiki Politiki this week has the perspective and background to speak to this issue. Dr. Chuck Baldwin is a conservative Christian minister, a disciple of Jerry Falwell and a founder of the Christian Coalition. After becoming a Republican in 1980 to support Ronald Reagan, he left the party during the George W. Bush presidency to join Ron Paul’s Constitution Party. Without compromising his conservative ideas — he is a Second Amendment advocate who believes in “open carry” — he offers his view of how and why the majority of his cohorts have taken the wrong road, and have become in his words “infatuated with” Donald Trump, whom he sees as an enemy of freedom, and everything the United States stands for.

On this very significant Election Day, which will — rightly or not — be an up or down vote for Donald Trump, tune into this highly-unusual interview and you’ll be encouraged that the “great upwising” and awakening is occurring on all sides.

Cuando muchos vieron a Russell Westbrook quedó tirado en el suelo en el tercer cuarto del duelo que Oklahoma City le ganó 122-166 a New Orleans, se temió lo peor. Sin embargo, por fortuna para el base y, sobre todo, para el Thunder, la lesión sería de menor gravedad. El cuerpo médico de la franquicia confirmó que los estudios realizados sobre el tobillo izquierdo arrojaron resultados negativos y, por ello, tendría una recuperación más rápida de lo esperado.

Pero las buenas nuevas se acabaron allí, ya que Westbrook deberá esperar en dique seco un buen tiempo que, por lo pronto, comenzará este miércoles, cuando sus compañeros enfrenten a Cleveland.

Uno de los que habló sobre la situación del armador fue Paul George, la otra gran figura del equipo.

[QUOTE]

"Russ tiene una tolerancia muy alta sobre el dolor y cuando vi que se retorcía en el suelo me di cuenta de que era algo serio. Tenía la esperanza de que no fuera la rodilla, que fue lo primero que se agarró, pero dentro de todo lo malo que es para todos el tener que perderlo dentro del equipo la nota positiva es que se quedó solamente en un esguince de tobillo".

Paul George, alero de Oklahoma.
[/QUOTE]

Cierto es que el Thunder perderá a su líder, ya que en siete partidos de temporada el base promedió 24.1 puntos, 8.4 rebotes y 8.3 asistencias, pero más allá de todo lo malo, lo bueno es que puertas adentro tienen la esperanza de recuperarlo más pronto que tarde.

SUBHEAD: New UN report warns of impending catastrophe as world warms, and glaciers melt.

By Dahr Jamail on 2 November 2018 for TruthOut -
(https://truthout.org/articles/new-un-report-warns-of-impending-catastrophe-as-world-warms-glaciers-melt/)


Image above: Glacier Peak in the central Cascade Mountains, seen from the East. The rapid retreat of the glaciers on this 10,541-foot mountain is starkly apparent in this photo of the fourth-highest mountain in Washington State. Photo from Dahr Jamail.=
“One of the penalties of an ecological education is that one lives alone in a world of wounds. Much of the damage inflicted on land is quite invisible to laymen. An ecologist must either harden his shell and make believe that the consequences of science are none of his business, or he must be the doctor who sees the marks of death in a community that believes itself well and does not want to be told otherwise.” —Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac
I have come to accept the bittersweet nature of my mountain trips. I venture into the heights for solace from the political, social and ecological demise that is raging across the planet. While camping at 7,000 feet in the central Cascade Mountains, I take in the view of the grand east face of Glacier Peak from atop Fortress Mountain. I gulp in the thick stars above. I find solace in the fact that those who are wrecking the planet will never be able to desecrate the stars.

However, while marveling at the glaciers glowing in the morning sun on Glacier Peak, their rapid retreat is starkly highlighted by the barren Earth below, where they once resided.

My last trip was on October 20, and from the summit, a 360-degree view revealed no less than four wildfires still burning. It was well into the fall in the Pacific Northwest, yet smoke still covered vast swaths of the state and was rapidly filling in the valleys below me.

While hiking out later, the after effects were inescapable. Portions of the forest I hiked through bore the scars of previous wildfires, and served as a warning of more to come.

The biggest news in the corporate media regarding climate change since my last dispatch has been the UN report stating that we have 12 years left to limit a full-on climate change catastrophe. To avoid this fate, we would need to spend those 12 years curbing global emissions dramatically.

Essentially, there would need to be a government-mandated plan across the globe that would enable us to limit warming to 1.5 degrees centigrade (1.5°C) rather than the 2°C goal of the 2015 Paris climate talks.

Eliminating that extra .5 of warming would save tens of millions of people from sea level rise inundation, and hundreds of millions from water scarcity and a myriad of other catastrophic impacts.

Limiting warming to 1.5°C would, scientists have said, require a radical rethinking of virtually every facet of modern society, including an abandonment of our entire fossil-fuel based economy.

However, currently, we are headed for at least a 3°C increase by 2100, with no mass government mobilization in sight.

Meanwhile, the warnings that the catastrophe is already upon us continue.

A recent study in a paper published August 31 in the journal Science warned that for each degree of rise in global temperature, insect-driven losses to the staple crops of rice, wheat and corn increase by 10-25 percent.

Given we are already at 1.1°C warming, we are already seeing these losses, which are sure to increase. “In 2016, the United Nations estimated that at least 815 million people worldwide don’t get enough to eat,” the University of Washington Press wrote of the study.
 “Corn, rice and wheat are staple crops for about 4 billion people, and account for about two-thirds of the food energy intake, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.”
At the same time, scientists are deeply concerned about the fact that non-pest insect numbers are declining rapidly. Bees, moths, butterflies, ladybugs and other insects are far less abundant, and scientists around the world warn that these insects are crucial to as much as 80 percent of all the food we eat.

“You have total ecosystem collapse if you lose your insects,” University of Delaware entomologist Doug Tallamy told the AP. “How much worse can it get than that?”

Meanwhile, in the realm of sea level rise, things are irreversibly catastrophic. A recent study of Antarctic ice sheets shows them to be far more sensitive to temperature increases than previously believed.

The study showed that when global temperatures were only slightly warmer than they are currently, sea levels were 20-30 feet higher than they are right now. “It doesn’t need to be a very big warming, as long as it stays 2 degrees warmer for a sufficient time, this is the end game,” David Wilson, a geologist at Imperial College London and one of the authors of the new research told The Washington Post.

Equally disturbingly, lakes in the Arctic are literally bubbling and hissing: They are releasing methane in large quantities as the ground underneath them thaws.

Methane is a greenhouse gas 100 times more potent than carbon dioxide on a 10-year timescale, and the widespread release of methane was a key driver of the Permian Mass Extinction event which annihilated more than 90 percent of life on Earth.

Meanwhile, the Arctic sea ice is melting rapidly. Ice extent reached its annual minimum recently, which is normally when the ice would begin reforming rapidly, particularly right in the middle of the Arctic Ocean. Instead, the ice continued to decline.

To underscore how governments are not doing enough to mitigate climate change impacts, Brazil, a major greenhouse gas emitting country, recently elected right-wing extremist Jair Bolsonaro as president. To say he is anti-environment (in addition to homophobic, racist and sexist) would be a gross understatement.

Known as the Trump of the Tropics, his plans include disempowering federal environmental agencies, opening up Indigenous reserves in the Amazon to mining and farming, and building hydroelectric dams in the rainforest, where deforestation, already at crisis levels, is set to explode.

Earth

Impacts of human-caused climate disruption across the terrestrial plane are becoming increasingly stark.

A recently published study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences revealed that global insects are in a crisis, and the problem is even more widespread than previously realized.

While previous studies had revealed a 45 percent decrease in invertebrates like bees and beetles in the last 35 years and another study showed a 76 percent decrease in flying insects in the last few decades in German nature preserves, the new study shows a startling loss of insects now extending into the Americas.

The report cites climate change as the cause. “This is one of the most disturbing articles I have ever read,” David Wagner, an expert in invertebrate conservation at the University of Connecticut told The Washington Post of the study.

Another recent study, also in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, showed that more than 300 species of mammals have been driven to extinction by human activities.

The study showed that even if humans ceased destroying wilderness areas and ended poaching and pollution within 50 years, and extinction rates fell back to normal levels, 5-7 million years would be required for the natural world to recover from what we have done to it.

“We are doing something that will last millions of years beyond us,” Matt Davis, a research leader at Aarhus University in Denmark, told The Guardian. “It shows the severity of what we are in right now.

We’re entering what could be an extinction on the scale of what killed the dinosaurs. That is pretty scary. We are starting to cut down the whole tree [of life], including the branch we are sitting on right now.”

In the US West, a region iconic for its vast expanses and the freedom to roam in the wilderness that comes with them, some people refer to themselves as “prisoner[s] of the environment” (as reported in this piece in The Guardian) due to increasingly unhealthy air quality from wildfire smoke, water shortages and drought. Many residents are now wondering whether they should move.

Longer, hotter fire seasons, increasingly warm temperatures, less snowfall, changes in plants, and shorter winters are in the process of fundamentally changing Yellowstone National Park in the next few decades.

“That conclusion is pretty much inescapable,” John Gross, ecologist with the National Park Service’s Climate Change response program, told USA Today. “It’s really more a question of the when and how it occurs than if.”

And it’s not just Yellowstone. The recently published study, “Disproportionate magnitude of climate change in United States national parks,” has shown that the parks have warmed twice as fast as the US average, and could well see the worst impacts of climate change. This is due to the fact that vast portions of national park areas are located at higher elevations, in the arid southwestern US, or in the Arctic.

The iconic trees of Joshua Tree National Park may soon find their environment uninhabitable. Glacier National Park will eventually be free of glaciers. And many other national parks could be left virtually unrecognizable by climate change.

Meanwhile, as permafrost continues to thaw and water seeps deeper into mountain crags, increasingly severe storms (thanks to climate change) will destabilize mountains and increase the risk of landslides and rockfall.

Speaking of permafrost, a recent report showed that coastal erosion in the Arctic is intensifying climate change. As the coast there eroded during the end of the last glacial period (20,000 years ago), dramatic amounts of the frozen CO2 were released into the atmosphere.

Now, this feedback loop — with climate change causing melting, melting causing CO2 release, and CO2 release exacerbating climate change — is beginning to occur again.

A recent study in Canada’s British Columbia showed that climate change is pushing alpine animals higher up mountains, as well as into extinction. The study showed that both plants and animals are shifting upslope 100 meters for every 1°C in temperature increase.
It’s not just plants and animals being forced to higher ground.

Some humans in the US are also moving to higher ground, as the era of mass climate migration has begun. The Great Migration in the US, a period during the 20th century when roughly 6 million black people fled the Jim Crow South for cities elsewhere, was the previous largest internal migration in the US.

One study showed that by the end of this century, sea level rise alone could displace 13 million people, six million of those in Florida alone. That number doesn’t include people fleeing drought and wildfire-prone areas, nor those having to move for lack of water, or ensuing violence.

Making matters worse, another leading climate scientist warned that 15-20 feet of sea level rise is possible within the next 70 years. That amount of sea level rise would mean the end of, literally, every major coastal city on Earth.

The number of people displaced would be in the hundreds of millions, as New York City, Boston, Miami, Lagos, Jakarta, Shanghai, Mumbai, New Orleans, vast swaths of Boston, and Ho Chi Min City would all be underwater.

A recent report from Yale 360 argued that the current system of rating hurricanes needs to be scrapped, because it fails to account for how climate change-augmented hurricanes are now carrying far more powerful storm surges, often moving slower, and bringing flooding from rainfall that the current system cannot account for.

If all of this information makes you feel despair, you are not alone. Another recent study warned of “catastrophic” mental health changes that are tied to climate change, including high levels of stress, anxiety and depression.

Water

As usual, climate change-induced disruptions are glaringly apparent in the watery realms of Earth.
A massive iceberg is now poised to break off Antarctica’s Pine Island Glacier. The iceberg is notably larger than the one that broke off the same glacier a year ago, which was 4.5 times the size of Manhattan.

In the US, given how many millions of people live in coastal flooding zones, with more looking to move to the coast, no one is required to even tell you if your future home is likely to flood.

According to a recent study by the Natural Resources Defense Council and Sabin Center for Climate Law, “[i]n 21 US states there are no statutory or regulatory requirements for a seller to disclose a property’s flood risks or past flood damages.”

The other 29 states have varying degrees of requirements to disclose this information.

In the low-lying coastal nation of Bangladesh, an entire country already beset by regular flooding, there is now an ongoing rural exodus into cities that is literally reshaping the country.

With 163 million people, Bangladesh is the world’s most populous delta. There, riverbank erosion alone displaces between 50,000-200,000 people annually, and the capital city of Dhaka is absorbing between 300,000-400,000 people — mostly climate migrants — each year.

On the other side of the spectrum of climate change-induced water disasters is drought.

In the US, a crisis at Lake Powell, between Utah and Arizona, is looming as the ongoing long-term drought impacts plaguing the Southwest are reaching farther and farther upstream. Water rationing has reached far upriver as places in Colorado have had to ration water due to diminishing snowpacks and the ongoing drought.

In New Mexico, water reservoirs are nearing bottom as they have been used to help people survive the record drought of 2018, but now they are nearly dry, prompting worries about how to deal with the future, for which only increasing widespread drought is predicted. For example, by late September, the largest reservoir in the state was at only 3 percent capacity.

Down in Australia, an ongoing drought is hotter and drier than anything people in the impacted areas have ever known, and it is getting worse.

“It’s quite unusual to get over 40C here but this last summer and the last couple of summers have been so scorchingly hot,” a sheep farmer there told The Guardian. “You can see the water being sucked out of the dams, sucked out of the soil, sucked out of my life and you can’t plan for that.”

Fire

After another summer of rampant wildfires across the US West, several continue to burn well into the fall. Since my last dispatch, a Wyoming wildfire forced evacuations from hundreds of homes and forced the closure of a highway south of Jackson.

By mid-September the wildfire had scorched at least 40,000 acres.

At the time of this writing, wildfires continued to burn in Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Colorado, Utah and Nevada.

A recent report discussed how wildfire tornadoes, record sizes and temperatures of wildfires, and other seeming anomalies will become phenomena we can expect regularly going into the future, thanks to climate change.

Air

Record-breaking warm temperatures beset Anchorage, Alaska, in September, along with unusually dry weather.

Of the record-breaking high temperatures there, climatologist Brian Brettschneider told the Anchorage Daily News, “we are absolutely smashing, obliterating, September records.” The average maximum daily temperature in September at the time of that report was 65.9 degrees Fahrenheit, more than 3 degrees warmer than the next closest September. On average, the typical average high temperature for the month of September there is 55°F.

High-temperature records were set across the state that month with Palmer, Kodiak, Seward, Kenai, Cordova and Valdez all setting records.

High-temperature records continue to be set around the world on a regular basis, yet in the US, the impacts are clear. Late October saw another record-breaking heat wave hit Southern California, with Los Angeles hitting 102°F.

Denial and Reality

In a recent interview, Donald Trump, who had called human-caused climate change “a Chinese hoax,” said it is real, “but I don’t know that it’s manmade.” He also said the climate will “change back again” — whatever that means.

Meanwhile, the ongoing denialism continues unabated in his administration. Climate change information was removed from an important planning document for a national park in New England, with the rationale that it was deemed a “sensitive” topic.

The North Carolina government did not like the science about sea level rise, so literally passed a law banning policies based on such forecasts. The state, of course, is still recovering from flooding from Hurricane Florence.

Meanwhile, Trump’s EPA has abandoned restrictions against hydrofluorocarbons, a chemical that has been linked to climate change. OPEC announced it is predicting a massive increase in oil production over the next five years — enough so that it will offset CO2 reductions from electric cars.

On that note, it was recently exposed that the state of Texas, already the leading emitter of greenhouse gasses in the US, has approved 43 petrochemical projects along the Gulf Coast since 2012 — projects that add millions of tons more of greenhouse gas pollution.

Stunningly, despite the terrifying weather events and dire predictions of what’s to come, it has come to light that the Trump administration is aware of and accepts a projected 7-degree rise in global temperatures by just 2100.

This came out in a draft statement issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which was written to justify Trump’s decision to freeze federal fuel-efficiency standards for cars and trucks built after 2020.

“The amazing thing they’re saying is human activities are going to lead to this rise of carbon dioxide that is disastrous for the environment and society,” Michael MacCracken, who served as a senior scientist at the US Global Change Research Program from 1993 to 2002 told The Washington Post
“And then they’re saying they’re not going to do anything about it.”
The Trump administration’s stance on climate change is essentially that we’re doomed, so what’s the point in cutting greenhouse gas emissions?

With regard to the alarming UN climate report, the White House basically shrugged it off, claiming that emissions in the US have dropped since 2005. This is a true statement, but does not explain the reason for that, which is a historic shift away from coal-fired electricity and toward renewables and natural gas.

Fortunately, reality is striking back.

A group of 17 bipartisan state governors representing states that comprise half of the total US GDP has vowed to both fight climate change and fight Donald Trump on the issue. They recently pledged $1.4 billion to support electric cars and institute new policies geared toward reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Stunningly, even Bloomberg, a business news outlet, is running stories with titles like “New Climate Debate: How to Adapt to the End of the World.

And of course, the language coming out of the UN is a sign that the international community is beginning to understand the full weight of climate change’s implication.

Alas, this realization has not yet been met with the policy response it deserves. The author of a key UN report on the dangers of breaching the 1.5°C global warming limit recently said that the world is “nowhere near on track” to keep warming below even that already arbitrary level.

JR Smith to New Orleans

The departure of LeBron James didn’t only take away the Cleveland Cavaliers’ status as a legitimate title contender, but it also turned them into one of the worst NBA teams in the league. Entering the season without James, the Cavaliers are struggling to win games and currently sitting in the 15th spot in the Eastern Conference with a 1-9 record.

After a 0-6 start, the Cavaliers decided to fire Tyronn Lue and replace him with Larry Drew as head coach. With the team prioritizing the development of their young players, some of the Cavaliers’ veterans, including J.R. Smith, have found themselves out of the team’s rotation. After losing the starting spot, Smith is clearly unhappy with what is happening with the Cavaliers and recently expressed his desire to be traded somewhere else.

          Louisiana Just Made a Major Stride in Ending Jim Crow in the State      Cache   Translate Page      
A referendum to end conviction by non-unanimous juries in Louisiana is gaining support in the lead-up to next week's election.

UPDATE (11/06/2018)Amendment 2 passes, ending the Jim Crow-era practice of allowing felony convictions without a unanimous jury. Louisiana was one of the last two states in the country to require only 10 of 12 jurors to convict in felony cases. More than 40 percent of all those who have been recently exonerated of crimes in Louisiana were found guilty by non-unanimous juries.

As the crowd began descending on the packed pavilion in Congo Square in the Treme neighborhood of New Orleans, it was hard to ignore the expressions of hope and enthusiasm on each of the participants’ faces as they gathered on Saturday before heading to the polls to kick off early voting in Louisiana.

At the front of the line of about 100 marchers stood Norris Henderson, the co-founder and executive director of the grassroots group Voices of the Experienced, proudly holding a sign that read “Vote Yes on 2.”

Norris spent 27 years in Angola State Prison for a crime he did not commit. He was convicted by a non-unanimous jury. He was there on Saturday to help Louisiana liberate itself from its century-old racist jury system, which has deep roots in Jim Crow, by encouraging the community to vote. His life’s work has been fighting the injustices of the criminal justice system and he has been on the frontlines ushering in many of the reforms the state has adopted in the last couple of years. “There is no reform more important or more impactful to attack mass incarceration in this state than Amendment 2!” he proclaimed to the crowd.

Louisiana is one of only two states (the other being Oregon) that does not require a unanimous jury of 12 members to deprive someone of their freedom in felony cases. That means that two jurors can believe that a person is innocent and yet that person will still go to prison in direct contradiction of the standard burden of proof in all criminal cases — beyond a reasonable doubt. Even worse, Louisiana is the only state in the country where someone can be sentenced to life without the possibility of parole without a unanimous jury. 

This law has its roots in slavery and took its current form during the Jim Crow era, when white supremacists wanted to increase the supply of free prison labor and nullify the voting power of black jurors. It has led to numerous wrongful convictions and has put pressure on many people, especially African Americans, to take plea deals in the hopes of getting more lenient sentences than they would get if they went to trial and were convicted of a felony by a jury that does not look them.

More than 40 percent of all those who have been recently exonerated of crimes in Louisiana were found guilty by non-unanimous juries.

But now, for the first time in over a century, Louisianans have the opportunity to change this archaic law next Tuesday and ensure that residents have the same protection of right that exists in 48 other states and federal courts. Voting Yes on Amendment 2 would require all 12 jurors to agree on a person’s guilt in order to convict.

The crowd out on the streets on Saturday was palpably excited about the possibility of Louisiana shedding its roots from this Jim Crow-era jury system. It included people of all ages, races, and walks of life, chanting phrases of change and hope. They created their own renditions of "When the Saints Go Marching In," replacing “saints” with “juries.”

This level of enthusiasm and support tracks with what we’re seeing statewide, and it has been led by individuals like Norris Henderson who have been directly impacted by the criminal justice system and are now helping lead the movement to transform it.

Since passing through the State Legislature last spring to secure its place on the ballot, Amendment 2 has garnered significant bipartisan support. It has received endorsements from both major state political parties; social, civil rights, and faith organizations; prominent law enforcement officials; district attorneys across the state; public defender associations; and, most importantly, the general public.

The community is the driving force behind this movement to end this Jim Crow-era law. If you walk down any major street in New Orleans, you would be hard pressed to go a mile without seeing a Yes on 2 yard sign in someone’s yard or business. Yes on 2 has been spearheaded by State Senator JP Morrell and the Unanimous Jury Coalition, consisting of champions of justice like the ACLU-LA, VOTE, SPLC and many others. 

The coalition has offices in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Shreveport. Because of the hard work of faithful volunteers, the coalition continues to exceed its weekly goals of educating the community and turning out voters.

Amendment 2 is also getting national attention. Recently, celebrities such as New Orleans Saints’ Linebacker Demario Davis and Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and producer John Legend joined the fight to require unanimous juries.

Louisiana has made great strides in the last couple of years to fix its criminal justice system and reduce the prison population. Passing Amendment 2 would aid that goal. Unanimous juries should matter to all Louisianans. When the voice of every juror counts, it strengthens our judicial branch and provides checks and balances for a fair criminal justice system.

          Louisiana decides future of non-unanimous jury verdicts      Cache   Translate Page      
Louisiana decides future of non-unanimous jury verdicts
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Voters will decide Tuesday whether Louisiana should join almost every other state in the nation where jury verdicts must be unanimous.
  
For decades jurors in felony trials - with the exception of death penalty cases - have been able to convict defendants with a 10-2 or 11-1 verdict.
  
Oregon is the only other state that allows split verdicts, and in Louisiana, support for joining the other 48 has been broad, with a rare coalition of conservatives and progressives calling for passage.
  
U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy, a Republican, and the only Democrat in the state congressional delegation, Rep. Cedric Richmond of New Orleans, supported it. So did groups as politically diverse as the Louisiana Family Forum and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
  
Backers derided split-verdict felonies as a vestige of Jim Crow-era polices promoting white supremacy, making it easier to convict non-white defendants even if one or two non-whites are on a jury. And they noted the possibility of a non-unanimous jury convicting innocent defendants.
  
A video distributed by the Unanimous Jury Coalition featured two exonerated convicts who had been imprisoned as a result of split verdicts.
  
Even the conservative Koch-brothers-backed Americans For Prosperity exploited this fear, in a 30-second online ad for the amendment.
  
"Imagine your child is charged with a crime she didn't commit," the ad said. "Multiple jurors agree she is innocent but the government sends her to prison anyway. It happens in Louisiana."
  
Nishi Kumar, a volunteer for the Yes on 2 campaign, was out Tuesday morning waving a sign to encourage drivers to support the measure. Her interest in the amendment comes from the criminal defense work she does with the Promise of Justice Initiative, a New Orleans-based organization that advocates for reforms.
  
"It's just a very antiquated law. It's based in Jim Crow. It's based in racism, and it's time to overturn it," she said.
  
Anne Ferris, a 43-year-old New Orleans resident, said she hadn't realized until recently that felony juries didn't have to be unanimous.
  
"There should be a unanimous verdict whenever there's a jury trial. If there's not a unanimous verdict then it's a hung jury," she said. "If it makes it harder, sorry. The prosecution needs to do a little bit better I guess."
  
While broad, support wasn't unanimous.
  
Calcasieu Parish District Attorney John DeRosier was a vocal opponent as the amendment moved through the Legislature, and Sabine Parish District Attorney Don Burkett said it would thwart justice by enabling a single juror to block a conviction in a case where evidence is clearly beyond a reasonable doubt.
  
"Child molesters, drug dealers, murderers - it's going to make it tougher than ever to convict them," Burkett said in an interview.
  
The Louisiana District Attorneys Association stayed officially neutral. But, some prosecutors gave full-throated support.
  
District attorneys backing the measure included Hillar Moore III in Baton Rouge, James Stewart in Caddo Parish, Keith Stutes in Lafayette, and Paul Connick of Jefferson Parish in suburban New Orleans. New Orleans' district attorney Leon Cannizzaro stayed neutral.
  
"Once you know the history of this law, then you have to vote to repeal it," former Grant Parish District Attorney Ed Tarpley, a Republican, told the Press Club of Baton Rouge. "This is something that is a stain on the legacy of our state."

          NBA: Bulls wygrali z Knicks po dwóch dogrywkach      Cache   Translate Page      

New York Knicks ulegli u siebie po dwóch dogrywkach Chicago Bulls 115:116 w najbardziej zaciętym poniedziałkowym spotkaniu National Basketball Association.

Na parkiecie Madison Square Garden o minimalnej wygranej gości przesądził Zach LaVine, który rzucił 41 punktów i wykonał skutecznie rzut wolny na 0,2 sekundy przed końcem. Drugą próbę zmarnował, ale miejscowi nie byli już w stanie odpowiedzieć.

Siedemnaście "oczek" dla zespołu z Wietrznego Miasta zgromadził Antonio Blakeney, a piętnaście dorzucił Jabari Parker, który zanotował także osiem zbiórek.

          IL MERCATO DEL COTONE DI EDGAR DEGAS E IL QUADRATO SEMIOTICO      Cache   Translate Page      

È necessario, affinché un’opera, una pubblicità, una narrazione, un qualunque testo comunicativo, abbiano una forza dinamica capace di organizzare i propri equilibri endogeni e acquisire una migliore efficacia comunicativa e incisività agli occhi dello spettatore, realizzarla tenendo conto di una sorta di forza di coesione interna, propria di qualunque opera d’arte.

In altre parole, occorre in un’opera costruire una serie di relazioni non solo tra emittente e destinatario, ma anche tra gli elementi che concorrono a comporla, tra i vari personaggi dell'opera stessa.

Per fare ciò non basta solo l’utilizzo del modello attanziale, ma occorre utilizzare un ulteriore
modello costruttivo relazionale.


Per migliorare la struttura comunicativa realizzata attraverso il modello attanziale e fortificare le varie relazioni che intercorrono all'interno del testo visivo, scritto o sonoro, Greimas ideò il quadrato semiotico.

Il quadrato semiotico è in effetti la rappresentazione visiva degli equilibri che devono esistere
all'interno di un testo comunicativo affinché esso sia ancora più efficace.

Lo schema generico del quadrato semiotico
Questo intreccio di rapporti (il quadrato semiotico mette infatti in relazione coppie di concetti
presenti nell'opera, opposti e complementari) è voluto e quindi creato dall'autore del testo per
mettere in contrapposizione, in relazione complementare, contraddittoria o contraria delle forze, rendere più avvincente l’opera e di conseguenza per inviarci un messaggio che non viene immediatamente percepito a livello cognitivo ma che viene assimilato implicitamente a livello inconscio, e che quindi, per venire alla luce esplicitamente, ha bisogno di un minuzioso lavoro di analisi della comunicazione.

Cominciamo quindi a osservare in una famosa opera d’arte, Il mercato del cotone a New Orleans, di Edgar Degas, come l’autore sia riuscito a dare maggiore forza alla sua opera, organizzandone le spinte interne e creando un dinamismo maggiore nell'opera stessa.

Il mercato del cotone a New Orleans, di Edgar Degas
Siamo in un luogo di lavoro (ce lo dice sia il titolo che l’atteggiamento e l’abbigliamento dei
personaggi). Deduciamo molti altri particolari che suffragano questa nostra idea, grazie alle
categorie discorsive, ai simboli, agli indici e ai codici che compongono il quadro.

Essendo un luogo di lavoro, è evidente che la coppia di concetti da mettere in rapporto sarà relativa al lavoro e all'ozio, quindi, riferito ai personaggi del quadro, ai lavoratori e agli oziosi.

Ecco quindi un possibile quadrato semiotico del Mercato del cotone:

Alla destra dell'opera appare il lavoratore. Si tratta del dipendente dell'ufficio del cotone. È in
maniche di camicia, senza giacca, per connotare il fatto che si trova nel suo abituale luogo di lavoro, mentre gli altri sono clienti.
Quindi lui, a differenza degli altri non può far ciò che desidera, non può entrare e uscire, leggersi un giornale o appoggiarsi senza far niente, è colui che lavora più di tutti: il lavoratore.

Il lavoratore nel quadrato semiotico del dipinto di Degas
Sulla sinistra dell'opera ecco la forza in contrarietà rispetto al concetto del lavoratore: si tratta del cliente in cilindro che rimane in atteggiamento rilassato, appoggiato al muro, con le gambe incrociate. Forse ha già finito la sua scelta dei campioni di cotone, oppure è entrato nell'ufficio solo per curiosare, comunque non sta facendo niente, si riposa, perde tempo, non è attivo, è l’ozioso.

L'ozioso nel quadrato semiotico del dipinto di Degas
Passiamo alla seconda coppia di contrari. In primo piano vediamo un vecchio con il cilindro,
seduto, cliente dell'ufficio, che osserva da vicino un campione di cotone per valutarne la qualità.
Non è un ozioso come il giovane appoggiato alla parete, ma non si può dire che sia lavorando come il dipendente in gilet e maniche di camicia. Lui può entrare e uscire quando desidera, non è sottoposto a nessun datore di lavoro e a nessuna regola, nell'ufficio in cui lo vediamo. Infatti è seduto, attento ma anche non in tensione, rilassato ma all'opera. Lui è il non ozioso.

Il non ozioso nel quadrato semiotico del dipinto di Degas
Al centro della composizione vi è un uomo seduto, rilassato, che legge il giornale. Non valuta la qualità della merce da acquistare come il vecchio in primo piano, ma si fa beatamente gli affari suoi. Però non è completamente inattivo come l’ozioso, qualcosa fa, legge il giornale, magari le notizie di borsa, oppure è un giornalista che pur non lavorando in quel momento in qualche modo si dà da fare, legge un articolo di economia da lui redatto. Lui è il non lavoratore.

Il non lavoratore nel quadrato semiotico del dipinto di Degas

È contrario al concetto connotato dal vecchio perché chi non ozia fa qualcosa al contrario di chi non lavora.

Il quadrato semiotico nel capolavoro di Degas
Ora possiamo notare che il vecchio che non ozia, fa qualcosa di complementare al dipendente che lavora ed è contraddittorio rispetto al giovane ozioso in cilindro appoggiato alla parete a gambe incrociate.

Il non lavoratore che legge il giornale è complementare al giovane ozioso, è in contraddizione con il dipendente lavoratore.

Ecco come una scena che pare rubata alla realtà così come è, ripropone invece una sorta di trama nascosta, in cui ogni personaggio ha un ruolo ben preciso in relazione agli altri.

Il video illustra al meglio tali relazioni.


Così viene aumentata la forza dinamica dell'opera, che altrimenti sarebbe stata troppo statica e forse un po' meno significativa.

Two weeks in NOLA for the mardi gras 2017
The Mystic Krewe of Nyx, founded in 2012 is one of the newest Krewe's to parade in New Orleans Mardi Gras. It is an all-women's Mardi Gras Krewe, embracing women of diverse backgrounds.
Nyx (pronounced nicks) was the Greek goddess of the night, she was so powerful that not even Zeus dared to upset her. She was one of the most powerful goddesses in Greek Mythology.
The New Orleans City Council approved the Krewe to parade just three months before their inaugural parade. However, they were able to put together a parade that included 534 riders in that short time.
Local chef Susan Spicer was the 2014 grand marshall of the Krewe of Nyx. Spicer owns Bayona in the French Quarter and Mondo in Lakeview
In 2014, Krewe of Nyx paraded Uptown with 1,230 members.

Manet Hall--A 130-year-old Mansion with a life and story all its own.

Declan Fitzgerald--A Boston lawyer who is drawn to Manet Hall for reasons he cannot explain.

Lena Simone--New Orleans bar owner, is drawn to the stubborn smooth talking Yankee lawyer, despite her vow to never let anyone close.

Declan Fitzgerald had always been the family maverick, but even he couldn't understand his impulse to buy a dilapidated mansion on the outskirts of New Orleans. All he knew was that ever since he saw Manet Hall, he'd been enchanted--and obsessed--with it. So when the opportunity to buy the house comes up Declan jumped at the chance to live out a dream.

Determined to restore Manet Hall to its former splendor, Declan begins the daunting renovation room by room, relying on his own labor and skills. But the days spent in total isolation in the empty house take a toll. He is seeing visions of days from a century past, and experiencing sensations of terror and nearly unbearable grief--sensations not his own, but those of a stranger. Local legend has it that the house is haunted, and with every passing day Declan's belief in the ghostly presence grows.

Only the companionship of the alluring Angelina Simone can distract him from the mysterious happenings in the house, but Angelina too has her own surprising connection to Manet Hall--a connection that will help Declan uncover a secret that's been buried for a hundred years.

Experience the thrill of the Mardi Gras carnival as seen only in New Orleans, the fascinating waterfront in enchanting Florida and the pathos of the homeless in Greater St. Louis in this fascinating video. The origins of Mardi Gras or "Fat Tuesday" can be traced to medieval Europe. Long before Mardi Gras was introduction to America, ancient Romans were celebrating Lupercalia, a circus like festival not entirely unlike the Mardi Gras we are familiar with today. When Rome embraced Christianity, Christian leaders thought it better to retain some of the pagan festivals instead of abolishing them completely. Thus, Mardi Gras was slated as a carnival time that preceded the penance of Lent, and justifiably labeled as a Christian festival.

It was the French explorer Iberville who brought Mardi Gras to America in 1699. Thus, Mardi Gras came to New Orleans through its French heritage in the same year. Throughout the years, the city of New Orleans added to the celebration by establishing krewes (organizations) which host parades and balls. The Carnival quickly became an exciting holiday for both children and adults.

          Political Science Professor Explains Why Cheap Talk on Race and Xenophobia Keeps Americans from Confronting Real Economic Peril      Cache   Translate Page      
Adolph Reed, who researches race and politics, warns that “identitarian” politics can conceal the structural inequities of capitalism.

Lynn Parramore: As the elections approach, media pundits seem focused on the idea that the country is facing a racist and xenophobic breakdown promoted by Trump and the GOP. The Democrats posit themselves as the answer to this threat. What do you make of this framing?

Adolph Reed: Immediately after Trump’s victory, I was particularly struck by the debate over how to interpret the victory. In my mind, this was always a debate over how to respond strategically and point towards the midterms and 2020. 

The debate got condensed around the notion that Trump’s victory shows or has spurred a complete breakdown in the country around race and gender and homophobia and nativism. A lot of scholars have done intellectual work purporting to show that the white vote for Trump in 2016 was a reflection of status anxiety rather than economic anxiety. It boggles my mind that people think that it’s possible to separate the two in a neat way. But the big problem all along for those who wanted to push the white supremacist line is those 7-9 million people who voted for Obama and later for Sanders, then voted for Trump. How does racism explain that?

I had a very sharp and studious black undergraduate student wholly inside a race-first understanding of politics. When I mentioned the white people who had voted for Obama once if not twice who also voted for Trump, his response was, well, of course you can’t say that voting for Obama means that you’re not a racist. I said, yes, that’s true, but by the same token you can’t say that voting for Trump means you are a racist, right? Which they don’t want to accept.

LP: Thomas Ferguson, Ben Page, and their colleagues have just published a studyfor the Institute for New Economic Thinking revealing the intertwining social and economic factors that drove Trump voters in the Rust Belt, including those who switched from Obama to Trump. They find that long-term anguish over trends like globalization, imports, and slow growth were strong motivating factors that Trump was able to exploit by drumming up, for example, fear of immigrants. Yet many seem unwilling to confront this complexity. Why is that?

AR: My concern, and I’ve gotten more emphatic about it over time, is that if this argument is fundamentally an argument about the strategic direction that progressives and/or the Democratic Party should follow, then it’s really a debate about whether we try to mobilize around a politics that challenges the economic inequalities that are reproduced and intensified under capitalism, and especially neoliberal capitalism, or we pursue a response that accepts the logic of those inequalities and seeks to mobilize around a notion of fairness within that regime of fundamental inequality.

From that perspective, the notion that the fault line in left-of-center politics now is between people who take a class perspective and those who take an identity-based perspective miscasts the actual tension. The identity position is itself a class position. It’s just a position of a different class from the working class.

LP: An essay you wrote in the ‘90s criticized black public intellectuals who had become skilled, as you put it, at soothing white liberals in retreat from challenging economic unfairness by making them feel better about being on the side of “the black community” on matters of race. Are black pundits still doing this kind of soothing? I’m thinking of those who have tended to embrace neoliberal politics represented by figures like Hillary Clinton, who was offered as a presidential candidate in 2016.

AR: Yes, and what a sour offering that was. I think one difference between now and the time I wrote the essay is that the internet has democratized—and not in a good way—access to the racial voice or race spokesman profession. 

I never liked the notion of public intellectual. After Russell Jacoby, an old friend of mine, wrote a book called The Last Intellectuals, people picked up this idea that black people who write commentary are somehow black public intellectuals. That’s really at bottom a racialist premise—the notion that any random black person who gets access to the public microphone has a kind of authenticity and that he or she expresses and speaks deeper truths. 

To get more directly to the soothing function, yes, I think it’s even more perverse now. Take a figure like Ta-Nehisi Coates, whose message appeals to white liberals partly because of the moralism that lets you feel good about yourself in a particularly Protestant kind of way—in the sense of publicly performing one’s moral standing. But the real beauty of it is that since Coates’s message is that white supremacy is transhistorical, trancontextual, and always there, with whites committed to it ontologically, then the only thing you can hope for is repenting and individual atonement. Which is cheap and easy.

LP: How does that stance prevent us from challenging fundamental problems like economic inequality? How does it demobilize us?

AR: That’s maybe the most important question and that’s what we’ve seen play out since Trump’s election. Going back to the 2016 campaign, first we get the sort of Clintonites of whatever color who invent the bogus idea of the “Bernie Bro” [a pejorative label characterizing supporters of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders as white and male]. Since the election, the stakes have been getting raised perpetually, especially among the internet chattering class. At this point the charge operates like the telephone game [a game in which a word or phrase is whispered around a circle and alters in unexpected ways]. Any claim or proposal concerning durable patterns of economic inequality is now taken as being tantamount to making excuses for white supremacy.

It’s kind of interesting to see this de facto alliance of Wall Street and corporate democrats and the nominally left identitarians who come together on premises like the one [Paul] Krugman started pushing, I think even before the [2016] election, concerning what some people are now calling “horizontal inequality.” [“Vertical inequality,” in contrast, focuses on overall income and wealth disparities]. 

The idea is that there is only inequality between groups, whatever that means, or between individuals. From that formulation it means that class and class inequality disappear from the equation. There’s no space in that dichotomy for considering structural dynamics that reproduce patterns of inequality among all people who have to work for a living. 

LP: In the country’s history, people of different races or backgrounds have worked together to promote policies that give ordinary people a better life. In North Carolina, for example, there were powerful black and white coalitions in the great Fusion victories of the late 19th century, when Populists and Republicans joined forces against elites. People wanting economic reform came together despite racism. Are we missing opportunities like this by focusing on what divides us rather than the things most of us want, like good schools and affordable health care?

AR: A few years ago when Barbara Fields was president of the Southern Historical Association, I was asked to join a presidential panel and I talked about the populist insurgency story, of which the North Carolina populist Fusion victories are the high point. I pointed out that yes, there was as much racial prejudice as you can find but that was not the undoing of those movements. It was violence, fraud, murder, and intimidation. When the panel was over, a black woman came up from the audience and wanted to catechize me about the limits of populism. She mentioned the racism and white supremacy, and I said, yes, there was that but there was also violence, intimidation, and murder on a grand scale. Her response was, yes, well, that’s true, but it was really the racism. Well, what can you say to that? She couldn’t see that the larger objective was to eliminate the threat that the insurgency had posed to planter-merchant class rule.

LP: As somebody who has ties to the North and the South, how to you view efforts to redress the wrongs of the country’s racial history, such as the removal of Confederate monuments? 

AR: I’m sort of half Southern in my upbringing. I did my first communion in Washington, D.C. on the day before the Brown v. Board of Education decision was handed down. We were living in Pine Bluff, Arkansas in ’57 and were there at the time of the Little Rock Nine [when nine teens braved violent protests to attend school after the Brown decision]. Then I was in New Orleans for high school. Before that I’d had the experience of being a Northern kid first from New York and then from D.C. who would go into the South during the last decades of the Jim Crow era. I’d have to learn the rules and get explanations from adults as to what this was all about, how you were supposed to act and why. From the time that I was old enough to recognize what they actually were, I detested those monuments completely, and I was very happy to see them gone. 

I made the point in an essay that it’s beyond time for them to be gone, but among the reasons that they could be taken down is that the social order that they were meant to memorialize is also long since gone. They were never really about celebrating the Confederacy. If you look at when they were constructed, they were meant to memorialize the version of the solid South behind white supremacy that the planter-merchant class was imposing between the end of the 19th century and WWI as a direct response to the defeat of the populist insurgency. 

LP: You’ve recently highlighted that this is a tricky time for historians and those who want to examine the past, like filmmakers. Well-intentioned people who want to confront the injustices of history may end up replacing one set of myths for another. You point out the distortion of history in films like “Selma” which offer uplifting narratives about black experiences but tend to leave out or alter meaningful facts, such as the ways in which blacks and whites have worked together. This is ostensibly done to avoid a “white savior” narrative but you indicate that it may serve to support other ideas that are also troubling.

AR: Exactly, and in ways that are completely compatible with neoliberalism as a style of contemporary governance. It boils down to the extent to which the notion that group disparities have come to exhaust the ways that people think and talk about inequality and injustice in America now. 

It’s entirely possible to resolve disparities without challenging the fundamental structures that reproduce inequalities more broadly. As my friend Walter Benn Michaels and I have been saying for at least a decade, by the standard of disparity as the norm or the ideal of social justice, a society in which 1% of the population controls more than 90% of the resources would be just, so long as the 1% is made up non-whites, non-straight people, women, and so on in proportions that roughly match their representation in the general population.

It completely rationalizes neoliberalism. You see this in contemporary discussions about gentrification, for example. What ends up being called for is something like showing respect for the aboriginal habitus and practices and involving the community in the process. But what does it mean to involve the community in the process? It means opening up spaces for contractors, black and Latino in particular, in the gentrified areas who purport to represent the interests of the populations that are being displaced. But that has no impact on the logic of displacement. It just expands access to the trough, basically. 

I’ve gotten close to some young people who are nonetheless old school type leftists in the revitalized Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), and I’ve been struck to see that the identitarian tendency in DSA has been actively opposing participation in the Medicare for All campaign that the national organization adopted. The argument is that it’s bad because there are disparities that it doesn’t address. In the first place, that’s not as true as they think it might be, but there’s also the fact that they can’t or won’t see how a struggle for universal health care could be the most effective context for trying to struggle against structural disparities. It’s just mind-boggling.

LP: If politicians continue to focus on issues like race, xenophobia, and homophobia without delivering practical solutions to the economic problems working people face, from health care costs to the retirement crisis to student debt, could we end up continuing to move in the direction of fascism? I don’t use the word lightly.

AR: I don’t either. And I really agree with you. I was a kid in a basically red household in the McCarthy era. I have no illusions about what the right is capable of, what the bourgeoisie is capable of, and what the liberals are capable of. In the heyday of the New Left, when people were inclined to throw the fascist label around, I couldn’t get into it. But for the first time in my life, I think it’s not crazy to talk about it. You have to wonder if Obama, who never really offered us a thing in the way of a new politics except his race, after having done that twice, had set the stage for Trump and whatever else might be coming.

          Cake Pull      Cache   Translate Page      

Cake and charms have a long, tasty history. New Orleanians usher in Mardi Gras season by sharing plastic baby–studded King Cake, which harkens back to pagan tradition in Rome. The Irish bake Barmbrack bread, speckled with raisins and ominous trinkets, in honor of an ancient, autumnal festival. Then there’s the cake pull.

The ritual has its roots in the Victorian era. Brides wore dresses with charms sewn onto the bottom hem, which bridesmaids pulled to take home as lucky keepsakes. Over the years, it's believed that the dress hem tradition evolved into baking a ring into the bride's pie. The woman who discovered the ring inside became next in line for marriage. Henry C. McKenzie, a Scottish baker, is thought to have popularized the practice in New Orleans during the early 1920s. Now a popular tradition throughout the American South, the cake pull (or ribbon pull) involves gathering single female friends around the bride's cake. Ribbons, tied to charms hidden inside, peek out from the bottom layer (these are inserted after it's baked, but before it's frosted). On the count of three, the guests pull a ribbon and expose their future, signified by the shape of their charm.

Historically speaking, the ring determines the next to get married; a horseshoe or clover represents good luck; a telephone symbolizes good news; an anchor conveys hope; a heart means love lies ahead; a thimble or button condemns an old maid; and a penny alludes to poverty. Modern cake pulls contain up to 20 charms, and don't necessarily include tokens of ill-will. New Orleanians also love including images of local culture, which can mean anything from jesters, to fleur-de-lis, to oysters.

Experience the thrill of the Mardi Gras carnival as seen only in New Orleans, the fascinating waterfront in enchanting Florida and the pathos of the homeless in Greater St. Louis in this fascinating video. The origins of Mardi Gras or "Fat Tuesday" can be traced to medieval Europe. Long before Mardi Gras was introduction to America, ancient Romans were celebrating Lupercalia, a circus like festival not entirely unlike the Mardi Gras we are familiar with today. When Rome embraced Christianity, Christian leaders thought it better to retain some of the pagan festivals instead of abolishing them completely. Thus, Mardi Gras was slated as a carnival time that preceded the penance of Lent, and justifiably labeled as a Christian festival.

It was the French explorer Iberville who brought Mardi Gras to America in 1699. Thus, Mardi Gras came to New Orleans through its French heritage in the same year. Throughout the years, the city of New Orleans added to the celebration by establishing krewes (organizations) which host parades and balls. The Carnival quickly became an exciting holiday for both children and adults.

Louisiana passes amendment ending split jury verdicts

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Supporters of a constitutional amendment ending split jury verdicts are celebrating their victory.

The amendment passed Tuesday. It ends 10-2 or 11-1 verdicts in felony cases. The amendment was supported by a wide range of groups and individuals across the political spectrum.

Americans for Prosperity cheered the amendment's passage, saying it protects the rights of the accused and ensures verdicts are beyond a reasonable doubt.

The conservative organization is the main political advocacy group for billionaire Charles Koch, who has supported criminal justice overhauls in several states, including Louisiana. Norris Henderson, state director of the Unanimous Jury Coalition, says the passage shows the nation that people can come together for the "common cause of freedom."

          The View From Pluto: The Ticking Clock on Interim Coaches      Cache   Translate Page      
The Cavs and the Browns are taking different approaches in the aftermath of firing their coaches. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says interim coaches know their time at the helm may be short, and it adds a whole new dynamic to the team and its staff. The tainted coordinator When the Browns fired Hue Jackson with just three wins in two-plus seasons, they promoted defensive coordinator Gregg Williams as interim coach. Williams has had a rocky tenure in the NFL. Most notably, he was suspended for the 2012 season for his role in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal, when he was the defensive coordinator there. Members of the team were found guilty of paying out bonuses or "bounties" for injuring opposing team players. "He was the one that they tried to make an example of," Pluto said. "But a whole lot of teams had been doing that for a long time. He probably never thought he was going to be a head coach again." So, Williams saw an opportunity. But it's a much different view for the more

Saints sign ex-Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant
METAIRIE (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says free-agent Dez Bryant and the Saints have agreed on contract terms that will add the former Dallas Cowboys star to one of the NFL's top offenses in New Orleans.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
The person spoke to The Associated Press Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the roster move has not been announced. ESPN's&nbsp;NFL insider Adam Schefter&nbsp;also reported the move Wednesday afternoon.&nbsp;&nbsp;

The 30-year-old Bryant spent his first eight years in the NFL with Dallas and last season caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns, including a 50-yard scoring play, for the Cowboys.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
However, his professional reputation has been marred at times by public confrontations with coaches and teammates during games and practices.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
Seeking salary cap relief, the Cowboys released Bryant after last season with two years remaining on the receiver's five-year, $70 million contract.

          Cook, Diggs listed as questionable      Cache   Translate Page      
Injury Cook will be limited if he plays

Dalvin Cook and Stefon Diggs are both listed as questionable for the Minnesota Vikings' Week 9 game against the Detroit Lions. Diggs sustained an injury to his ribs in the second quarter of a 30-20 loss to the New Orleans Saints. The wide receiver did not practice Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. Cook's participation in practice Friday gives the Vikings hope that he will be able to play against the Lions. Sources indicated that Cook will go through an on-field workout prior to inactives before determining whether he can play. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: The Vikings handling of Cook is questionable at best given they have a bye next week. If he does play, he's expected to be on a pitch count. He won't be a recommended fantasy play even if he is active on Sunday. Diggs owners should be getting plan B in place in case he is ruled inactive on Sunday.

          Arkansas Voters Sign Off on Issue 4, Sports Betting on Horizon?      Cache   Translate Page      
11/7/2018 10:49:56 AM -

On Tuesday, legalized sports gambling and daily fantasy sports won approval in select areas in Arkansas and Louisiana, and in Florida the power to expand the industry was stripped from the state Legislature and put in the hands of voters.

Florida’s Amendment 3, which gives state residents the power to expand gambling, won support with 70% of the vote. The initiative, taking 760,000 signatures to get it on the ballot, came about after state legislators failed in recent years to agree on various gambling measures, notably stalling in the House, which is more gambling shy than the Senate.

The ballot initiative was proposed by Voters in Charge, a political committee, significantly financially supported by the Seminole Tribe and the Walt Disney Co. The vote does not affect casinos on Indian reservations in Tampa and Fort Lauderdale.

The political action committee spent more than $30 million in support of Amendment 3, with the expressed goal to slow expansion of gambling in the state.

Two opposition political action committees, Citizens for the Truth and Vote NO on 3, raised nearly $7 million to fight the measure. Among its backers, the Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, St. Petersburg Kennel Club, Cardroom Tech and Elevated LLC of Los Angeles.

Online sports betting sites DraftKings and FanDuel also lobbied against the amendment. Some opposing said Disney and the Seminole Tribe did not want competition for tourist money, which drives the Florida economy. Florida, ranking fourth in U.S. population, has long been “the get” for the gambling industry due to its large number of retirees, many with cash and time to burn.

In May, the U.S. Supreme ruled on a New Jersey lawsuit that essentially overturned the ban on sports betting. Since then several states, including New Jersey, Delaware, West Virginia, Mississippi and New Mexico, have full-scale legal sports betting. Pennsylvania, New York and Rhode Island have passed legislation are poised to begin betting, possibly by the end of the year or early in 2019. As many as 15 other states are considering sports betting measures.

Florida has not seized on the high court ruling, despite proposals for “destination resorts” that would include retail, lodging and legal sports betting. With Amendment 3 passing, gambling interests will likely have to wait longer and work harder to make inroads into the state.

In other Tuesday election results on gambling measures:

  • In Arkansas, voters approved legalizing casino gambling in Pope and Jefferson counties, plus at a dog track West Memphis, Ark. and a horse track in Hot Springs. More than $4 million was spent in support of the measure by the Cherokee and Quapaw Tribes.
  • In Louisiana, a measure asking each state parish, 64 of them, to approve or ditch fantasy sports games was OK’d in the New Orleans, Lafayette and Baton Rouge areas.

Voters supported the measure in East Baton Rouge, Orleans, Jefferson, St. Charles, St. Tammany, St. Bernard and Lafayette parishes. Also, West Baton Rouge, Ascension and Livingston parishes.

Games can only be played legally in parishes where the ballot initiative passed.

A campaign in support of the effort was heavily funded by FanDuel and DraftKings, the two leaders in the sports fantasy industry.

"Tonight's results are a major step forward for the tens of thousands of sports fans in Louisiana who want to play fantasy sports like fans in 41 other states," Ryan Berni, chairman of Fairness for Fantasy Sports Louisiana political action committee, tweeted on Tuesday night. “Over 90% of LA residents will be able to play next year based on parish by parish results.”

The Louisiana state legislature will have to write and approve regulations and taxation its 2019 session before the games can begin. The legislative session starts April 8.
