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!

          UFT leaders rushed ahead with a backward deal      Cache   Translate Page      

Educators Peter Lamphere, Bill Linville and Will Russell report from New York City on the ratification of a contract for teachers that contains unnecessary concessions.

EDUCATION WORKERS in the United Federation of Teachers (UFT) voted to approve the latest contract with the New York City Department of Education, with 80 to 85 percent of teachers supporting ratification and with slightly higher percentages among other titles.

But occupational and physical therapists rejected their contract out of anger at long-standing unmet demands for pay parity with pedagogues who have similar education levels. The maximum salary for speech therapists, for example, is over $27,000 more than for occupational and physical therapists.

Now it will be up to these members, along with their brothers and sisters in other titles, to press the union to mobilize as they go back to the table for a better deal.

However, for the rest of the membership, this contract — with below-inflation raises, massive givebacks in health care and an inadequate plan for rescuing struggling schools in the Bronx — falls far short of meeting the needs of the educators and students in New York City public schools.

UFT President Michael Mulgrew speaks to reporters

While the approval margin seems overwhelming at first glance, it was only achieved by the anti-democratic practices of the UFT leadership.

Led by the autocratic Unity Caucus, the union leadership negotiated the contract during the summer when teachers were away, with a negotiating committee forbidden to discuss the contract with the rank and file. Then the ratification was rammed through over two and a half weeks, months before the current contract expires in February 2019.

In taking this approach, UFT leaders deprived the membership of time to study the details of the contract — and time for a “vote no, stay union” opposition to form. They also deceptively insisted to members that the contract contained no givebacks, that raises kept pace with the rate of inflation, and that the contract was “member made” with input from rank-and-filers.

In reality, among other worrisome concessions, the contract contains over $1 billion in health care givebacks and the implementation of a two-tiered system of health care benefits for the first time. Furthermore, the agreement doesn’t meet the growing needs of students and vulnerable communities in a city with record levels of segregation and student homelessness.

There are a few standout gains in the contract: the reduction of the required minimum number of yearly observations for each teacher from four to two and increased job security for paraprofessionals, the least protected members of the union.

The UFT leadership has brought worse contracts to the membership to be voted on in the past. Nevertheless, this is a concessionary contract at a time when the city is sitting on a large budget surplus and when teachers are making significant gains both for themselves and their students across the country, through radical actions including strikes.

A major shift in strategy is needed in order to both ensure fair conditions for both public school educators and students — one that looks away from alliances with politicians and toward the radical tactics that were on display in the teacher strikes and rebellions this year in states like West Virginia, Arizona and Washington.

Such a strategy will also need to rely on a key lesson of the successful 2012 Chicago teachers’ strike — by creating an alliance between the teachers’ union movement and students and parents.


AT A moment when unions should be looking to involve more members, the leadership’s rush to vote sent the message to members that their voices aren’t important.

On October 11, a deal was announced in a press conference with Mayor Bill de Blasio, Department of Education Chancellor Richard Carranza and UFT President Michael Mulgrew — in which Carranza spoke of Mulgrew as his, “Brother from another mother.”

Many members wondered why the leadership called a special Delegate Assembly for the next day, given that the upcoming monthly DA was already scheduled to take place within the week, on October 17.

Delegates only received short statements from Mulgrew and the chancellor. They didn’t receive the entire 63-page Memorandum of Agreement until just over an hour before the meeting.

At the meeting, the vast majority of the time was spent by Mulgrew making a PowerPoint presentation selling the contract.

The limited period for discussion — in which no member of the UFT’s opposition caucuses were called on — nevertheless included several speakers who had contrary views on the contract. One member called for a delay in the vote so that chapter leaders and delegates could have time to read the proposal for themselves.

The meeting voted to send the contract to members for ratification, but DOE educators were only given until October 31 to complete the voting process.

The contract itself is the result of a long-standing negotiating process for New York City public-sector union contracts called “pattern bargaining” — in which the first city union that negotiates a contract sets the “pattern” on issues such as health care and wages for the rest of the unions on the Municipal Labor Committee (MLC). In this round, AFSCME Local DC 37 ratified its contract at the end of June, which set the pattern.

The UFT leadership argued that aspects of the contract that were part of the original pattern bargaining agreed to by AFSCME were therefore off the table during subsequent UFT negotiations and impossible to reopen.

However, there have been times when unions have attempted to buck this trend — or when the city has. For example, former Mayor Michael Bloomberg held out in granting the UFT the same pattern of raises that other city unions got for the entirety of his 12 years in office.

Astonishingly, in their attempts to sell the contract to the rank and file, UFT leaders even made the deceptive argument to members that the billion-plus dollars in health care givebacks weren’t contained in the contract because they were part of the original pattern bargaining.


IN TERMS of wages and health care, the contract represents a significant step back for New York City educators.

Kit Wainer, a social studies teacher and UFT chapter leader at Leon M. Goldstein High School in Brooklyn, says he voted “no” for two main reasons: “First, the fact that the raises don’t keep pace with inflation. Second, voting to force first-year teachers into an inferior health plan, even if for only a year, violates my sense of basic union solidarity.”

Annual raises for the 43-month life of the contract will be 2 percent, 2.5 percent and 3 percent — which, despite claims to the contrary by the UFT leadership, won’t meet projected rates of inflation.

We also aren’t keeping up with wage increases for workers throughout the New York City area. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, on average, wages had increased for New York City-area workers by 3.0 percent in the year preceding June 2018.

This contract marks the second agreement in a row with significant concessions on health care. In the last round, the MLC agreed to find a total of $3.4 billion in savings, which resulted in steep increases in co-pays — including $150 for ER visits and $50 for urgent care visits, among other cuts.

In this round, the MLC has agreed to $1.1 billion in cuts over the course of the contract, while also agreeing to a second tier in our health care for the first time. New hires will be required join a significantly more restricted HIP-HMO network for one year, after which they will be able to choose the health plan they prefer.

A new program for high-needs schools, especially in the Bronx, will have a pay differential for teachers in those schools. Unfortunately, the differential will be different for different license areas, creating divisions inside the workforce.

Plus, the additional support appears to be a school-based committee that will primarily look at school data to set goals for improvement, and would require the agreement of the school’s UFT chapter leader and principal, though the details are sketchy.

Mulgrew touted this plan as visionary in his DA presentation. But these are clearly retread market-based solutions. A visionary plan would have included drastically reduced class sizes, expansion of sometimes limited academic opportunities, and additional resources to provide extracurricular activities and further academic support.

There are several additional concessions that will leave most members unsatisfied about the key challenges that they face day to day in the schools:

The union agreed to allow a new “psychological evaluation” for incoming teachers — the details of which are completely unclear at this time.

The creation of additional out-of-classroom positions that come with higher pay will create more divisions between teachers and make it harder to lower class sizes.

Pay differentials for additional education will become more difficult to get, as newer teachers will be required to get new “A+” credits for the differentials. Ironically, the UFT itself will be one of the providers of these credits, and so will end up profiting from the change.

The union agreed to allow an additional dean in schools, weakening the power of school chapters that previously had to vote to create the position.


AMONG THE notable gains in the contract, unpaid suspensions of paraprofessionals will now be subject to review by an arbitrator review and will be limited in duration.

Observation minimums have been reduced, bringing New York City more in line with the rest of the state. However, educators with lower ratings still face more observations, so the change brings no relief to those targeted by abusive administrators.

Grievances for oversized classes will be subject to an expedited calendar for informal resolution at a district and citywide level.

But as Kit Wainer points out, in a mid-October settlement of a grievance regarding nine oversized classes, “an arbitrator issued an order requiring the principal to equalize all classes. Under the new procedure, we would not have been able to request an arbitration hearing until at least October 10, which means we would not have gotten a ruling until sometime in November.”

Similarly, safety and consultation issues will have an informal resolution process, which can be eventually taken to arbitration. There is also a strengthening of the anti-retaliation language in the contract to bring harassment under binding arbitration.

Overall, however, with the exception of the drastic concessions on health care, both the gains and givebacks in this contract are relatively minor compared to what is not included.

Class size limits remain at levels that are unacceptably high for education, unchanged for more than 50 years. Also unchanged is a funding system that penalizes more senior employees and has consigned many veteran members from closed schools to circulating without a permanent position.


THE MEAGER salary increases come at a time when educators elsewhere are demanding more — and winning.

For example, educators in Washington state were able to force the state to release funds to increase teacher salaries — and they followed up with a wave of strikes and actions that led to annual salary increases ranging from 10.5 percent in Seattle to 20 percent and more elsewhere in the state.

Meanwhile, New York City is projecting a budget surplus of $4.6 billion for fiscal year 2018, the largest in 10 years. If this is the best that we can do while the economy is doing relatively well and the city’s coffers are flush, what should we expect when the economy takes a downturn?

A “progressive” mayor who campaigned on the slogan of “a tale of two cities” should be forced to do better than making the working class pay for health care concessions.

A great place to start looking for an alternative vision would be the example of educators in the “red state rebellions” — who mobilized rank-and-file members in a series of escalating actions that culminated in walkouts and dragged union leaders behind them.

The entire political landscape around education has changed since last spring’s teachers strikes. Walkouts in red states have spilled over into liberal strongholds like Washington — with strikes in Los Angeles and Oakland possible in the coming months.

One result of the educator rebellion has been that public opinion about teachers and striking has shifted drastically. There is broad public support for these kind of actions: A recent poll found that “78 percent of public school parents (and 73 percent of the public) say they would support teachers in the own communities if they went on strike for higher pay.”

The UFT rank and file can be activated and organized in this way as well — as shown by the successful campaign for paid family leave last spring. It will be up to rank-and-file organizations like the Movement of Rank and File Educators and Teachers Unite to develop and continue this and other campaigns, such as the fight for lower class sizes, ending segregation and building the Black Live Matter in our schools movement.

The votes for ratification of this concessionary deal represent resignation, rather than enthusiasm. Rank-and-file groups can build off existing anger and frustration among the minority that voted “no” by organizing grassroots campaigns around the issues that matter to teachers and families — like lowering class size, opposition to school closings, and improving health care access for union members and all New Yorkers.

Tens of thousands of teachers, therapists and other education workers voted against this contract — and showed there is a base for future organizing.

          Obi Melifonwu: 'It feels like a blessing' to join Patriots      Cache   Translate Page      

The Patriots need some help covering tight ends, and they might have found a solution. Obi Melifonwu is joining the team’s safeties club with Devin McCourty, Patrick Chung and Duron Harmon.

The former UConn product and Grafton native, reached Monday, couldn’t be more thrilled to be a Patriot.

“It feels like a blessing, honestly. I’m just glad to be back home with my friends and family. It’s a team that I’ve grown up watching,” said Melifonwu, the former second-round pick of the Raiders. “They’re such a great organization. I’m just so proud to be a part of it.”

Melifonwu, who agreed to terms on a contract with the Patriots, according to his agent, Sean Stellato, could be a potential answer to coverage issues they’ve been having with tight ends. The 6-foot-3, 224-pounder is a freakish athlete.

Melifonwu played in just five games with the Raiders. Injuries severely hampered him during his time in Oakland. He had knee and hip problems. He was waived off injured reserve earlier this year, making him a free agent. He had visits with a couple of other teams, the Cowboys being one, but in his heart, “being a Patriot was the best thing for me.”

The former UConn star indicated he was healthy now, and could jump right into practice, and play this weekend against the Titans if needed.

 “It won’t be my decision whether or not I play right away,” he said. “I just know the Patriots will have my best interests at heart. I’m definitely going to be ready for the opportunity, but I know for me, I need to make sure I get accustomed to the playbook and the organization and the way they run things.”

Melifonwu said he could see himself in a lot of different roles, but did feel marking tight ends could be in his future, along with playing special teams.

 “I think now in the NFL, there’s a lot of tight ends that are more athletic, bigger, stronger, faster,” he said. “One of the key roles is covering tight ends, and being matchup for them, and helping the team that way.”

 Melifonwu was at the Patriots-Packers game Sunday night. He enjoyed that along with the pregame celebration honoring the world champion Red Sox.

 “The performance the Sox had against the Dodgers was unbelievable. Being from Massachusetts, how great New England sports are, it’s incredible,” said Melifonwu, “So being at Gillette (Sunday night) was extremely special to me. I’ve lived in Massachusetts my whole life, really. The Patriots have been my favorite team since I started watching football. I’ve always wanted to go to a game but never had the opportunity . . . to watch a game before I got to play there, especially seeing Rodgers vs. Brady, 12 vs. 12, that was incredibly special.”

 Stellato was thrilled to help make it happen for Melifonwu in New England:  “I think he has unique traits that can help them win. No one does a better job than the Patriots in this business of identifying those type of guys. I think it’s going to be a great fit for everybody.”

You didn't even mention the ramp they are putting on that eastbound side with angles that look like it could impair turning visibility. Also, if you think that looks dangerous, you should see the condition of the highway pavement underneath and the temporary on and off ramps. That's a fatal accident waiting to happen too anytime speeds actually near posted limits. I used to regularly bike through that area and it is pretty much a disaster. The west side feeder streets have dangerous intersections with merging traffic and frequent light runners, the street immediately feeding the underpass is filled with potholes and double parked vehicles and further down towards Fruitvale you have to compete with vehicles exiting the freeway without a stop sign.

          Comment on Help. I Need Your Advice. by Chris Boutourline      Cache   Translate Page      
The saying, "Lies, Damned lies, and statistics" was popularized by Mark Twain who attributed it to Benjamin Disraeil (wikipedia). Disclosure: I fear a Russian judge in the house and I have a horse in the race. I broke it down this way 1. Record? 2. Playoffs? If so....? 3. Single factor? For correct record: I put D as the clear winner with A a handily beaten 2nd. B, C, and E brought up the rear, with C enjoying a slight edge amongst this group (statistically, I think they all deviate, to a negligible extent, from the outlier of 108 wins- edge to C for absolute closest). Points (1-5, lowest total wins) D=1 A=2 C= 3 B & E= 3.5 I based D as winner due to correctly under-valuing Nats who, prior to the season, Vegas placed an over/under on (for # of wins) of 92.5 wins (the 1/2 point is because Vegas doesn't like ties) -they won 82. A, came in 2nd by picking very close to what oddsmakers expected of the team (85.5), the Cards won 88 (I think they greatly, over-achieved given the team's make-up). See above for B, C, & E. As to the "Make Playoffs?" question it has an inherent weakness, which is, that, if you pick your team to NOT make the playoffs, you're done answering questions, whereas, the pickers of their favorite team to play on, have to navigate 3-4 rounds of playoffs. This is where the Russian judge comes in as degree of difficulty enters the equations. I came up with an order favoring playoff "pickers": in this order, B=1 C & E=2.5 D=3 A=3.5 Reasoning: B got it dead-on, C & E had Red Sox in WS, C had them winning it but didn't name opponent. E had them in WS but losing to Dodgers (btw, naming WS opponent or other "extra credit" twists (see "J.D. Martinez") seem like sucking-up to Russian judge). D gets a bit screwed but really, hasn't the annual implosion of the Nats become, lately, almost as dependable as the Red Sox winning the WS? And A picked a team that wasn't expected, by most, to make the playoffs. "SINGLE" (R.M.'s caps) Factor: B & E= 1 C=2.5 A & D= 3.5 Reasoning: B & E both said Red Sox "hitting". According to ESPN "Sortable Hitting & Pitching", Boston was 1st in hitting and 8th in pitching. C came up with the very specific JD Martinez, homer prediction but I considered this, maybe the best, TEAM to ever play in Fenway so an individual pick misses the mark. D said Nats hitting would fail them but ESPN has them 8th out of 30 in batting, so it's a stretch to say they failed in hitting. "A" said Cards pitching would stand-out as lacking but they fell equally as short in hitting (ranked12/30 in pitching and 11/30 in batting. Final Score= B=5.5 D & E=7 C=8 A=9 Closing thoughts; I know the contest favors early voters so that should be considered. A thought for the 2019 contest, a "Most surprising team" - did anybody have Oakland for 97 wins? (their over/under was 74.5). Also, if the question, re: playoffs, remains the same next year I'd like the non-playoff pickers to venture a guess as to the outcome of the playoffs to raise their degree of difficulty.

É muto bom terminar um relacionamento sem mágoas, porém continuar amigo (a) do ex pode ser um problema. Pelo menos é isso que garante o psicólogo e terapeuta de casais Antonio Carlos Araújo, que diz conhecer vários casos parecidos e afirma: nenhum deles deu certo. Segundo o especialista, manter contato pode prejudicar os futuros relacionamentos. “A desconfiança é inevitável. A outra pessoa vai saber que já aconteceu um envolvimento muito forte, não há como convencê-lo de que isso não vai acontecer de novo. Essa situação gera ciúmes, brigas e pode acabar com qualquer esperança de levar esse novo relacionamento adiante”, explica.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

'We don't focus on the Lakers'

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

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

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

Sonnenberg will have his work cut out.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tell the Truth: Veterans Day Is A National Day of Lying
By David Swanson, World BEYOND War

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Dead

have no use for our silence

          The Botanist, and the 2018 Verb For Keeping Warm Lookbook      Cache   Translate Page      

By now, you may already have seen my latest cardigan, The Botanist.  It's part of a lovely collection from my friends at a Verb For Keeping Warm, and it's knit out of Kristine Vejar's gorgeous Pioneer yarn, dyed in the Vineyard colorway (how appropriate, right?)

The pattern is my translation of the classic Aran cardigan - that one with the big wooden buttons, usually knit in heavy cream yarn.  I wanted to make a lighter, more delicate version - with a shorter, boxy fit, a bunch of gorgeous textures and cables, and a little bit of an interesting collar.  I especially love the little wraps around the seed cables...


Verb still has kits for this pattern available in Tree Fort and Tortilla, and is taking pre-orders in Vineyard, Root, and Peat for December 2018 delivery.  

The Botanist is part of Verb's first Look Book, a collection that celebrates the whole process behind our craft - from the farm to the needle. Other featured designs in the collection are by Bristol Ivy, Maryjane Mucklestone, Elizabeth Doherty, and Annie Rowden, and they are all beautiful, knit in different handdyed fibers, and also available in kits!  You can see the whole look book HERE


As the month goes on, there will be a few other components of the project, including a few podcast interviews, an Instagram contest, a celebration at Verb's Oakland store and more.  I'll keep everyone up to date as I have info for you!

To start with,  how about that contest? To enter, if you are an Instagram crafter, tag any of your craft projects you are working on that use Verb materials with the hashtag #verbalong, and you'll be entered to win a $50 gift certificate at the Oakland shop at the end of November.  They'll be choosing 3 winners! 

If you want to work on The Botanist, the Ravelry page for the sweater is HERE, and it's also available on the patterns page of the website here.  The pattern is both written and charted. Sleeves are worked flat, and the sweater is knit from the bottom up.  The body is worked seamlessly to armholes and split into front/front/back to shoulders.  Once shoulders are seamed, sleeves are set in and seamed. Modifications to depth or width are easy and notes are in the pattern. 

The Botanist is a cocktail as well, and the recipe is in the lookbook....  (so take a look? )

And hey, did you notice the new blog layout?  I still may be working on a few things, but I wanted to  make it a little cleaner and brighter, and bring the actual blog entries up to the forefront!

          Fifty Years Ago This Week in West Rome - 11/11/1968 to 11/17/1968      Cache   Translate Page      
Romans awoke to surprise snow flurries on Monday morning, November 11th, and continued off and on through the day and into the early evening. Minor accumulations of up to 1/2"  were reported in some parts of Floyd County, and there were no cancellations or travel advisories--but there were a few minor traffic accidents caused by the light snow on wet pavement, and one Roman slipped and fell while attempting to gather enough snow to make snow cream.

Roger Weaver was once again tapped as the Rome News-Tribune's Player of the Week for his outstanding performance in the East Rome game. The paper referred to this as "Weaver's finest hour...  There's no doubt that he was the sparkplug that enabled West Rome to end its season on a  winning note." He carried the football 34 times during the game and gained 291 net yards, the best single-game performance by any area back during the season.

Kippy Scarborough and Janice Crider represented West Rome in the Rome Junior Miss Pageant, held on Saturday night at the Rome City Auditorium--and Scarborough was the winner, assuming the title of Floyd County June Miss. Scarborough, a senior at West Rome, was a majorette for four years, a solo twirler for two years, and a member of senior band, Student Council, Tri-Hi-Y, and Drama Club. She was also convention chairman for the Georgia Association of Student Councils.

If you grew up in West Rome, you became very familiar with the "fragrance" of Georgia Kraft (now Inland Container). Their rotten-egg smell of the paper mill frequently wafted across the area when the winds were right, and pretty much no air filtration could keep it out of West Rome homes and businesses. Georgia Kraft insisted that their four recovery units, designed to minimize emissions from the plant, actually reduced the smoke and stink by at least 80%--and to demonstrate how effective it was, the facility turned off just one of the four recovery units on Thursday, November 14th, for about an hour. The immediate result? The light white smoke emitted from the stacks was replaced with a dark, heavy smoke, and the smell increased dramatically. Apparently "See? We could be even worse" was the closest thing to clean air that West Romans could hope for...

After almost a decade of planning and construction, the final segment of the East Rome Interchange was completed. This link extended from Maple Road to Walker Mountain Road, a distance of 2.9 miles, and it cost almost $1.2 million to construct. The interchange, greatly improved traffic flow from Rome to Cedartown--and to the soon-to-be-constructed Floyd Junior College.

With the bond issue a done deal, the Georgia Board of Regents gave official approval to the contract for the construction of a junior college in the Rome area. Plans called for the school to be finished by the fall of 1969.

Harvest Festival Days took place from Thursday through Saturday, offering an array of shopping bargains from stores across Rome and Floyd County, with a particular emphasis on Christmas season shopping. Every retail store on Broad Street announced special sales to commemorate the event, reminding readers that even with large discount department stores coming to Rome (read "Big K"), Broad Street still offered the best selection and great bargains.

Piggly Wiggly  had chuck roast for 39¢ a pound, Maxwell House coffee for 50¢ a pound, and Coca-Cola for 33¢ a 6-bottle carton (plus deposit). Kroger had Cudahy Bar-S bacon for 49¢ a pound, bread for 18¢ a loaf, and oranges for 8¢ each. A&P had sirloin steak for 99¢ a pound, Ann Page salad dressing for 49¢ a quart,  and large eggs for 49¢ a dozen. Big Apple had ground beef for 49¢ a pound, Duke mayonnaise for 49¢ a quart, and a five-pound bag of Dixie Crystals sugar for 39¢. Couch's had chicken livers for 49¢ a pound, Bama jellies for a quarter a jar (and you could use the jar as a drinking glass when you finished up the jelly!), and bananas for a dime a pound.

The cinematic week began with The Paper Lion (starring Alan Alda) at the DeSoto Theatre, The Fox (starring Sandy Dennis) at the First Avenue and Young Runaways (starring Brooke Bundy) at the West Rome Drive-In. The midweek switchout brought The Boston Strangler (starring Tony Curtis) to the DeSoto Theatre, Helga (an adults-only film starring unknown Ruth Gasseman) to the First Avenue, and Five Card Stud (starring Dean Martin) to the West Rome Drive-In.

The Beatles' "Hey Jude" held the number slot for the ninth week in a row, while Diana Ross & the Supremes' "Love Child climbed to #2 this week in 1968. Other top ten hits included "Those Were the Days" by Mary Hopkin (#3); "Magic Carpet Ride" by Steppenwolf (#4); "Abraham, Martin, & John" by Dion (#5); "White Room" by Cream (#6); "Hold Me Tight" by Johnny Nash (#7); "Who's Making Love" by Johnnie Taylor (#8); "Little Green Apples" by OC Smith (#9); and "Wichita Lineman" by Glen Campbell (#10).

On Sunday, November 17th, NBC broke away from the Oakland Raiders-New York Jets football game at 7pm, with less than a minute to play in the game, to begin their much-advertised TV movie adaptation of Heidi. Unfortunately for NBC, the Raiders managed to score two touchdowns in that final minute and thus won the game--and none of the TV viewers got to see it. The game became known as "The Heidi Bowl," and as a result, non-sports viewers have had to put up with their TV shows being pushed back by slow-play sporting events ever since...

          Playoffs in Gefahr! Cowboys verlieren schon wieder       Cache   Translate Page      

Klare Angelegenheit im Monday Night Game der NFL.

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

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

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

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

Playoffs für Cowboys in Gefahr

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Down on her hands and knees and meowed. Here kitty, kitty, kitty.

Pretend dinner made of rocks. Stretched just like a cat at meowed again.
Lulu went to “work,” came back with more rocks, their “groceries.” Scratched her head.

Said the witch: I don’t mind if you go home and play again, I don’t mind if you have fun.


But I don’t want to stay here all by myself. (“DREAMS OF TEMPORARY SPACES”)

So I think we have a pretty solid top 4 with Maddux, Johnson, Bonds, and Scherzer.

          Does Old George belong in the Hall of Fame: The answer is simple. Yes, with all the other dregs      Cache   Translate Page      
Before there was a President Trump, there was a George Steinbrenner. And while I'm not here today to argue politics - (this site should be a zone of Yankee fan unity; please honor that request) - I think we can agree on one reality:

For better or worse, in our lifetimes, we will never be free of their legacies.

For Yankee fans, there will always be a "before" and "after" the Boss. On our deathbeds - hopefully, many years from now - we will recall moments of incredible triumph and desperate humiliation. We will wince and, hopefully, have a smile. So it goes. As the great philosopher, Blue Oyster Cult, once wrote, "History shows again and again how nature points out the folly of man." 

Today, our nation faces a thorny decision: An MLB veterans committee must soon rule on whether Old George belongs in the Hall of Fame. 

I should note that George would not be enshrined near Mickey and Willie - where he has no business - but in a bunker earmarked for old, rich, dead, obese and heavily flawed white assholes, who were lucky to have lived before the #me-too movement. It's called "The Owners' Wing. If there is a god, it is surely a rest stop on the way to Hell. 

And, yes, old George certainly belongs.

Let's dispense with a review of George's life. We all know him. Nearly a decade after his death, he remains a polarizing figure, a punch line, and a prime reason people still hate the Yankees. But he was a mixed bag. He disgraced himself with petty acts, scapegoating players and managers. Then he'd stand up against some idiocy - remember how he refused to allow the bases to be festooned with logos for Spider-Man 2? - and save the day from a runaway Selig shit show. 

I hereby nominate George Steinbrenner for the Hall of Fame's owners' wing because he'll be in fine company. 

For starters, he can spend time with Charles Comiskey, the cheapest bastard to ever own a baseball team. His wages were so shitty that they fueled the Black Sox scandal of 1919, though he- of course - escaped the blame. They always do, don't they?

George can also hang with Tom Yawkey, the beloved Boston owner who - if he were alive today - would be a hero in the white nationalist movement. Remember the Curse of the Bambino, and how Redsock fans banded together as a tribe of "chosen people,#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000" relegated to suffering? That was no curse. It was the result of an owner who didn't want black people on his team. And old Tom is in the Hall.

But wait, there's more! If George gets in, he can talk with Walter O'Malley, who was inducted 10 years ago. If there a dung heap in Hell, it's reserved for the man who moved the Dodgers to LA and forever betrayed the loyal fan base that made him rich... but not rich enough. What a guy!

(Of course, George won't get to spend time with Charles O. Finley, the original Steinbrenner of the Oakland A's. He never made it. Too many burned bridges. 

But this should be his year. In the NFL, Jerry Jones is going into Canton. Why not George. There is something about assholes. The more, the merrier. Oh, no, there goes Tokyo. Go go Godzilla.

Integral to that examination are the places that give us provisions. Hernández and Whelan consider the unexamined journey of our food, with landmarks like roadside signs and market stalls, fields and baskets, on its way to the kitchen.

The entire band will be back in Oakland. The A’s announced Tuesday that manager Bob Melvin’s entire coaching staff will return for the 2019 season. Teams as successful as the A’s typically lose a coach, but not this time. Melvin, a finalist for 2018 American League Manager of the Year, again will lead a staff that includes hitting coach Darren Bush, assistant hitting coach Mike Aldrete, pitching coach Scott Emerson, base coaches Al Pedrique and Matt Williams, bench coach Ryan Christenson, bullpen coach Marcus Jensen and quality control coach Mark Kotsay.
          Billy Beane of A’s named baseball’s Executive of Year      Cache   Translate Page      
CARLSBAD, San Diego County — Billy Beane, whose A’s won 97 games and posted the majors’ best record after mid-June, was named Executive of the Year by Major League Baseball on Monday. It’s the first year MLB has presented the award. Beane, Oakland’s executive vice president of baseball operations, was named Executive of the Year four other times, twice by the Sporting News (1999 and 2012) and twice by Baseball America (2002 and 2013). In the selection process for the MLB award, each team was given a vote. Beane finished ahead of Erik Neander of the Tampa Bay Rays and David Stearns of the Milwaukee Brewers, who tied for second. The A’s earned a wild-card spot after finishing last in the American League West three straight years.

In something of a foregone conclusion, A’s manager Bob Melvin was named one of the three finalists for the Baseball Writers’ Association of America’s American League Manager of the Year Award on Monday. Melvin, who was named the Sporting News’ AL Manager of the Year last month, is the frontrunner for the BBWAA honor, which will be presented next Tuesday. The other finalists are Boston’s Alex Cora and Tampa Bay’s Kevin Cash. After three consecutive last-place finishes, Melvin, 57, guided Oakland to 97 wins in 2018, the team’s highest total since 2002, despite numerous injuries to the rotation throughout the season and the league’s lowest Opening Day payroll. The A’s earned the second wild-card spot and lost to the Yankees on Oct. 3.

CARLSBAD, San Diego County — A’s general manager David Forst recalled the day he and Billy Beane interviewed a young Farhan Zaidi for an entry-level position in Oakland. Zaidi, who was named the Giants’ president of baseball operations Tuesday night, had a bachelor’s degree in economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and was getting a doctorate in behavioral economics from Cal. A typical numbers guy, right? “We originally hired Farhan because of his personality,” Forst said, “not because of his Ph.D or his analytics chops or whatever.” Wait, what? “We sat on the couch in Billy’s office and just enjoyed the hour conversation we had with him,” Forst said. “Yeah, it helped that he went to MIT and was trying to get a Ph.D.

          Banda de garotas "apadrinhadas" pelo Red Hot Chilli Peppers se apresenta no Brasil      Cache   Translate Page      
Warpaint (Foto: Divulgação)

 

"Conheci a Warpaint em 2010 de um jeito escroto: era a banda da namorada do John Frusciante", relembra a baterista e instrumentista carioca Larissa Conforto, ex-Ventre e uma das maiores agitadoras da presença feminina na cena musical nacional. Na época, Lari fazia sucesso na banda formada apenas por mulheres Tipo Uísque, que inclusive se apresentou na primeira edição do festival Lollapalooza, e logo as californianas se tornaram referência direta ao som de seu grupo.

Talvez você ainda nunca tenha escutado a banda formada por Emily Kokal, Jenny Lee Lindberg, Stella Mozgawa e Theresa Wayman, mas seus ídolos favoritos são fãs delas. A história contada pela Larissa é só um dos exemplos de algo que está mudando na indústria da música, pois as mulheres passaram a se tornar as grandes protagonistas. E provando seu talento e sucesso, Warpaint se apresenta duas vezes no Brasil em novembro. Domingo, 04.11, no Balaclava Fest, em São Paulo, ao lado dos brasileiros Jaloo, Metá Metá, Marrakesh e Moon; e no Rio de Janeiro, em apresentação única, ao lado dos goianos do Carne Doce, na quarta-feira, 07.11. Pausa para um recado importante: preparamos uma playlist para você conhecer o grupo; dê o play no link ao final da página e escute enquanto lê esta matéria!

+ Spice Girls vão sair em turnê sem Victoria Beckham
+ Você precisa ouvir nossa playlist SÓ com hits #girlpower dos anos 2000

"Apadrinhadas" pelo Red Hot Chilli Peppers, porque além do relacionamento de Kokal com Frusciante, o guitarrista Josh Klinghoffer – o músico mais novo a entrar no Rock and Roll Hall of Fame aos 32 anos, graças ao seu trabalho com a RHCP – costumava fazer parte do Warpaint. A trajetória do grupo feminista começou em 2004, em Los Angeles e continua sendo cruzada com muitos outros artistas contemporâneos – abriram turnês de nomes como Harry Styles e The XX. Com um pé no indie e outro no pop, suas referências passam pelo rock e até mesmo pelo trip hop, sempre com uma execução meticulosa acompanhadas de letras bem pensadas. Quando não estão viajando o mundo juntas em turnê, se dedicam a projetos solos – como TT (de Theresa) e Jennylee – ou a produzir outros artistas – Stella é creditada em mais de 30 discos de artistas tão diferentes como Flea, Kurt Vile, Soko e Jagwar Ma.

O quarteto já se apresentou duas vezes no país, ambas em apresentações fechadas para convidados, para finalmente se jogarem no enorme público brasileiro. "Elas tocaram em outubro de 2011 em uma festa sem ingressos à venda. Não fui convidada, mas arrisquei um e-mail para o contato de shows que estava no site do Warpaint – escrevi que era muito fã. O tour manager me inseriu na lista de convidados da banda. Que sorte a minha!", relembra a cantora e compositora Susan Souza, idealizadora do projeto Cinnamon Tapes.  No momento, as californianas estão em processo de composição do sucessor do disco "Heads Up", lançado em 2016. Agora, só nos resta torcer para as novas músicas entrarem no set list dos shows nacionais.

5 perguntas para Warpaint

Vendo os 10 anos que vocês estão juntas, há um segredo para uma banda resistir unida? AMIZADE é tudo. Ficamos melhor em não pisar nos calos umas das outras, concordamos que menos é mais e nos damos espaço para cada uma se expressar individualmente – independente da banda.

Sempre foi um processo colaborativo? Somos uma democracia desde o primeiro dia, mas nosso processo de escrita mudou um pouco. Costumávamos tocar todas juntas, escrever junto todas as músicas e percebemos que isso consumia muito tempo. Começamos a nos organizar em pares para escrever duas de cada vez, agora apenas uma escreve e condensamos nossas partes no estúdio.

Qual a maior lição da estrada? Como o tempo sozinha é precioso e todas nós nos tornamos melhores artistas por tocar todas as noites por anos.

Todas as integrantes têm projetos solo ou outras bandas. Por que vocês sempre voltam? É a nave mãe, nós somos muito gratas por cada uma e por essa banda. Foi aqui que tudo começou e é super divertido voltar. Fazer música solo é um desafio muito diferente, na verdade, é um respiro de ar fresco ficar com as meninas. 

Como Los Angeles faz parte da música da banda? Sinceramente, grande parte da nossa composição acontece fora da cidade, porque gostamos de fazer viagens curtas. Não acho que a paisagem é o que realmente impacta, mas em questão de distração, sim. A paz, o silêncio e o tempo para refletir por onde você esteve neste mundo e o que te inspirou neste ano. A casa pode parecer uma armadilha, é difícil concretizar coisas na cidade.

          11/6 Through the 1950's: Rickey GM; Bartell-Thevenow; Nealon Signed; HBD Candy Man, Tommy & Bob      Cache   Translate Page      
  • 1877 - 3B Tommy Sheehan was born in Sacramento (some sources say his BD is on the 5th, c’est la vie). Tommy played for Pittsburgh from 1906-07 and hit .255. He also spent a year with the New York Giants and Brooklyn Superbas before and after his Bucco stint. He did get to play a lot of ball near home, though - he earned his daily bread with 11 years of minor league ball at Sacramento, Portland, Tacoma, Oakland and Stockton. A word of caution - make sure to keep your Sheehan’s straight - this one is not to be confused with Tommy Sheehan, pitcher from the mid-20s who tossed for the Bucs from 1925-26. 
Jim Nealon 1906 (photo George Burke)
  • 1905 - The Pirates signed a hot shot prospect, San Francisco Seals 1B Jim (aka Joe, his middle name) Nealon, for a reported $6,500 in a heated bidding battle with the Cincinnati Reds (the New York Highlanders, Boston Americans, St. Louis Browns and Chicago Cubs were also on his scent). Manager Fred Clarke spent a week by the Bay working on Nealon and his father, with the Reds rep arriving a little late on the scene. Signing Nealon allowed the Pirates to include 1B Dave Brain as part of a package to the Boston Beaneaters to add Vic Willis to their staff a month later without losing any offensive muscle. Joe led the NL in RBI in 1906, but reported to camp in 1907 overweight and with a bad hand, the result of a fracture suffered in the off-season. He also fell out of favor with management; as a son of wealth, they felt he didn’t have his focus on baseball but on business. Nealon retired after the season - the Pirates were already auditioning replacements - and returned to the coast, playing in the California State League. He died of typhoid fever at the age of 25 in 1910. 
  • 1925 - OF Bob Addis was born in Mineral Springs, Ohio. He closed out a four-year MLB career with Pittsburgh, going 0-for-3 with a pair of whiffs and one pinch-running assignment. Bob finished his pro career that season with Toronto of the International League. Addis was later the baseball coach and AD at Euclid (Ohio) HS, and was inducted into the Ohio High School Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 1975. 
  • 1930 - SS Dick Bartell was traded by the Pirates to the Philadelphia Phillies for SS Tommy Thevenow and P Claude Willoughby. Defensive whiz Thevenow spent six season with the Bucs and hit .251 while Willoughby went 0-2 for Pittsburgh in his final MLB season. Bartell played 14 more seasons, made a couple of All-Star teams and ended up with a .281 lifetime BA. But the seemingly one-sided swap of SS’s worked out OK - Thevenow hurt his leg in 1931, and in 1932 was replaced in the lineup by Hall-of-Famer Arky Vaughan. Tommy Thevenow factoid: he didn't homer in his final 3,347 at-bats, the most consecutive at bats without a home run in MLB history. 
Branch Rickey 1950 (cartoon Willard Mullin/The Sporting News)
  • 1950 - Branch Rickey signed a five-year contract with the Pirates to become the team executive vice president/GM, replacing Roy Hamey. His son, Branch Jr., was named Pittsburgh's VP and farm system director. Branch laid the groundwork for future success by developing a productive farm system, but the Bucs put together just a 269-501 record (.349) during his tenure as GM. 
  • 1953 - LHP John Candelaria was born in New York. The Bucs selected the LaSalle Academy (Brooklyn) star in the second round of the 1972 draft. In 12 years (1975-85, 1993) with the Pirates, his line was 124-87-16/3.17, with a 1-1, 3.91 ERA slash in his four post-season starts. The Candy Man tossed a no-hitter, led the MLB in ERA once, earned an All-Star nod and a won a World Series ring while a Bucco. Overall, he had a 19-year MLB career with the Pirates, California Angels, New York Mets, New York Yankees, Montreal Expos, Minnesota Twins, Toronto Blue Jays, and Los Angeles Dodgers. 

          11/6 From 1960: Cutch & Neil SS's; Sadowski-Carroll Swap; Parker Proposal; HBD Adam, Don & Matt       Cache   Translate Page      
  • 1969 - RHP Don Wengert was born in Sioux City, Iowa. Don had spent 1996-97 full-time with Oakland but had been bouncing back and forth since when the Pirates signed him as a FA in 2001. The 32-year-old got four starts in May, went 0-2, 12.38, and spent the rest of the year back on the farm. That ended his MLB days; he tossed one more year for the Boston system before retiring and returning to Iowa. 
Don Wengert 2001 (photo Tom Pidgeon/Getty)
  • 1972 - RHP Matt Skrmetta was born in Biloxi, Mississippi. Matt got to toss briefly in the bigs during 2000, first getting into a half-dozen games with the Expos and finishing with eight outings and an 0-2, 9.26 line with Pittsburgh. Matt was a determined hurler: he played for 25 teams, believed to be a record, and 13 organizations, including a couple of seasons in Japan and an indie campaign. He’s now a scout for Softbank in the Japanese League. 
  • 1976 - In a swap of 22-year-old righties, the Bucs traded Jim Sadowski to the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for Tom Carroll. The deal ended up a wash; neither Sadowski nor Carroll ended up never pitching in the majors again. 
  • 1979 - 1B Adam LaRoche was born in Orange County, California. He played for the Bucs from 2007-09, hitting .265 with 58 HR. During his last Pirate season, he got to play with his brother Andy (their pop was P Dave LaRoche) and also became the first player in major league history to lose a home run to video review. He left baseball in 2016 after a messy clubhouse beef about him bringing his teen-aged son to the Chicago White Sox clubhouse too often. A devout family man and Christian, LaRoche quietly retired rather than compromise, passing on a $13M contract for the season. 
  • 1981 - Dave Anderson of the NY Times wrote that the Bucs and Yankees were discussing a deal for RF Dave Parker with the departure of Reggie Jackson on the horizon. The Pirates originally wanted five pitchers; the Yankees countered with an offer of hurlers Ron Davis and Gene Nelson along with SS Andre Rodgers. There were two sticking points: Pittsburgh wanted lefty Dave Righetti, whom New York considered an untouchable, and the Gotham gang wanted Parker to agree to a playing weight of 210 pounds, which the Cobra ho-ho-ho’ed off. No match was made and Parker played as a Pirate for two more seasons, then signed as a free agent with the Reds. 
Neil Walker 2014 Topps Heritage
  • 2014 - CF Andrew McCutchen won his third consecutive NL Silver Slugger award and 2B Neil Walker took home his first. Cutch became the first Pittsburgh outfielder to earn three consecutive Silver Sluggers since Barry Bonds in 1990-92 while Walker was the first Pirate second baseman to earn one since Johnny Ray in 1983. Cutch and SS Ian Desmond of the Nats were the only NL repeat winners.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora has been named one of three finalists for the American League Manager Of The Year award. The other finalists are Tampa Bay Rays Manager (and former Red Sox catcher) Kevin Cash and Oakland A's Manager Bob Melvin. While all three are certainly worthy of the honor—our guess is that Cash will win it based on his taking a low-salary, trade- and free-agent decimated roster of no-names to a 90-win season. As great as Cora's managerial style was—and as amazing as his 108-win season was—Cash's achievement is truly astounding in a division with behemoths like the Sox and Evil Ones. Stay tuned!

          Titans Top Cowboys 28-14 in Cooper's Debut      Cache   Translate Page      
Kevin Byard secured the interception that sparked the sluggish Tennessee Titans and turned toward midfield.

The flashback for the Dallas Cowboys was just as disheartening as the original.

Byard mimicked Terrell Owens' mocking celebration on the star logo at the 50-yard line from 18 years ago, Marcus Mariota accounted for three touchdowns and the Titans spoiled Amari Cooper's Dallas debut with a 28-14 victory on Monday night.

The end-zone pick of Dak Prescott came after Mariota fumbled on the first two Tennessee possessions. Just as T.O. did at old Texas Stadium 18 years ago, Byard ran to midfield, under the huge videoboard at spacious AT&T Stadium, and spread his arms.

Owens did it twice in a blowout San Francisco win over a bad Dallas team that time. This win by the Titans (4-4) ended their three-game losing streak while handing the Cowboys (3-5) their first loss in four home games and making their road to the playoffs a difficult one.

"It was huge," Mariota said of Byard, while adding that he didn't see the celebration. "The defense has done an unbelievable job throughout the year in building us up. They found ways to give us plays, to get turnovers."

The Cowboys looked like the team headed for a blowout win, but led just 7-0 after Mariota's early miscues because of Brett Maher's missed 38-yard field goal on the opening possession and Prescott's ill-advised throw into double coverage.

"That was the difference. Simple as that," said Prescott, who lost a fumble at his 40-yard line to set up Tennessee's tiebreaking score in the third quarter. "Defense gives a turnover there. We're up seven points and I go down there and try to force the ball and give it right back to them."

Cooper scored the first Dallas touchdown after DeMarcus Lawrence stripped the ball from Mariota . The two-time Pro Bowl receiver finished with five catches for 58 yards after coming over from Oakland in a trade for a first-round pick during the open week.

Given another chance when what would have been a third straight fumble to start the game was overturned by a review that showed Luke Stocker didn't have the ball long enough on a catch, Mariota led an 80-yard drive capped by Derrick Henry's 1-yard plunge for a 7-7 tie.

Mariota converted two third-and-9s with passes and a shorter third down with a run on his first TD drive, setting the stage for the Titans to convert 11 of 14 third downs.

The Cowboys fell flat in 15-year tight end Jason Witten's first trip home since retiring to become lead analyst for "Monday Night Football."

Dallas had just 108 yards in the second half — the bulk of those on a desperation drive down two scores late — and was booed several times at the end of failed drives.

After getting sacked on third down with nobody realizing Tennessee had called timeout in a 7-7 game in the second quarter, Mariota completed a 36-yarder to Darius Jennings before a screen pass to Dion Lewis went 18 yards for a touchdown.

Mariota broke a 14-14 tie in the third quarter when he pulled the ball out of Lewis' gut at the last second and delivered a 7-yard shovel pass to Jonnu Smith to put the Titans ahead for good. Mariota's 9-yard scoring run all but sealed things with 4:38 to go.

Mariota was 21 of 29 for 240 yards without an interception and had 32 yards rushing. Lewis had 62 yards rushing and 60 receiving coming off a career-high 155 scrimmage yards in his last game.

Star Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott finished with 61 yards after a hot start. Prescott was 21 of 31 for 243 yards and two scores — 4 yards to Cooper and 23 yards to Allen Hurns. The two turnovers were Prescott's first at home this season.

T.O. FLASHBACK

There was something else familiar about Byard's celebration: a Dallas defender trying to do something about it.

George Teague famously knocked Owens off the star back then, and Cowboys cornerback Byron Jones made a similar move on Byard and the group that joined the celebration. Owens seemed to get a kick out of the whole thing on Twitter.

"I was actually expecting somebody to knock my head off," said Byard, who thought about the possible celebration at the team hotel. "I was like, 'If we get to the 50, if we get enough guys to the 50, we are just going to start dancing on the star.'"

WITTEN TRIBUTE

The Cowboys paid tribute to Witten with a pregame video on the giant board hanging over the field. The franchise leader in games, catches and yards receiving wiped his eyes when a small inset of him was shown during the video, but seemed to have gained his composure when he was shown on the full screen. Witten waved, smiled and tapped his chest around his heart several times as the crowd roared.

INJURIES

Dallas LB Sean Lee pulled up with a hamstring injury while trying to cover Smith on a 26-yard completion to the Titans tight end. Lee didn't return. ... Titans WR Taywan Taylor left with what coach Mike Vrabel said was a lower leg injury.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

But is the talent?

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

"I believe we do," he said.

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

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

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

QUIET McCOY

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

TURNOVERS

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

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

INJURIES

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

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

UP NEXT

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

Bills: At New York Jets on Sunday.

****
INFORMATION ABOUT EDWIN HAWKINS' GOSPEL SONG "OH HAPPY DAY"
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oh_Happy_Day
"Oh Happy Day" is a 1967 gospel music arrangement of an 18th century hymn. Recorded by the Edwin Hawkins Singers, it became an international hit in 1969, reaching No. 4 in the US and No. 2 in the UK pop charts. It has since become a gospel music standard.

Edwin Hawkins’ funk style arrangement of the hymn "Oh, Happy Day" has a long pedigree: It began as a hymn written in the mid-18th century ("O happy day, that fixed my choice") by English clergyman Philip Doddridge (based on Acts 8:35) set to an earlier melody (1704) by J. A. Freylinghausen. By the mid-19th century it had been given a new melody by Edward F. Rimbault, who also added a chorus, and was commonly used for baptismal or confirmation ceremonies in the UK and USA. The 20th century saw its adaptation from 3/4 to 4/4 time and this new arrangement by Hawkins, which contains only the repeated Rimbault refrain (all of the original verses being omitted).

The Edwin Hawkins Singers began as The Northern California State Youth Choir of the Church of God in Christ, Inc. and was founded in 1967 by Hawkins and Betty Watson. Members were aged 17–25. As was common in gospel circles they produced and distributed their own LP: Let Us Go Into the House of the Lord, recorded live in church. "Oh, Happy Day", featuring Dorothy Morrison as lead vocalist, was picked up by a local DJ, KSAN's Bob Mcclay, and subsequently released commercially.Aretha Franklin had already brought strong gospel stylings to the pop charts with songs such as "Think" (1968), but a hymn had never “crossed over” before. "Oh Happy Day" soared into the US Top 5, winning a Grammy and massive sales worldwide."

Edwin Hawkins' brother, Walter Hawkins (May 18, 1949 – July 11, 2010) also composed Gospel songs and led a Gospel choir. Click http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04KcopeY2Og for a sound file of Walter Hawkins & The Love Center Choir's Gospel song "I'm Going Up Yonder". Like Edwin Hawkins' composition of "Oh Happy Day", "I'm Going Up Yonder" has also become a highly regarded African American Gospel song.

          Comment on It’s time for some perspective by Rob Staton      Cache   Translate Page      
It's not alarming. A player in his second year, Chris Carson, has played particularly well. And when Mike Davis has been called upon he has also excelled. Here's Penny's two most meaningful games so far: vs Oakland -- 9 carries, 43 yards (4.8 YPC) vs Arizona -- 9 carries, 49 yards (5.4 YPC) There's no 'corner' to turn. Two other players have justified their place at the top of the depth chart. A rookie, who started the year injured and has had to work his way back to 100%, has ended up third on the depth chart. I'm absolutely staggered that people are trying to find drama out of this when it's really quite simple. And between this, the anti run stuff and the 'trade Russell' nonsense... man following this team is more of a grind than it was a few years ago.

It's time to relax. The midterms are over. And it's also the first Wednesday of the month, which means the silent-reading party is tonight.

Here's what it's like at the reading party. If you prefer to hear what it's like, here's a radio segment about the reading party.

You bring whatever you feel like reading and sit there and read silently, to yourself, while Paul Matthew Moore plays piano and waiters bring you things. Paul plays from 6 to 8 pm, and the reading-party menu lasts until 9 pm.

The silent-reading party started in Seattle, and it has since expanded to other places, including Brooklyn (The New Yorker called it "a literary social gathering for people who don’t like readings"), Phoenix, Portland (where they have "a beautiful old bell, like something a Victorian schoolmarm would have on her desk, that we ring at the end of the session"), San Francisco, and Scotland ("Silent reading party craze from America creating a noise in Dundee").

According to Poets & Writers's magazine, it's also sprung up in Washington, D.C.; Birmingham, Alabama; Des Moines, Iowa; Oakland, California; Andover, England; and Melbourne, Australia.

But we started it in Seattle, and we do it best. Here's where the reading party happens. It's all ages, and it's free.

Recently Twitter has been calling out white Instagram models for playing up the "racially ambigious" role. They darken their skin, overline their lips and change their hair to look like women of color. Here are some offenders:



mikafrancis

eemmahaldberg

jaidengumby

We can also see this phenomenon in the Entertainment industry with Ariana Grande, The Kardashians and Jesy Nelson from Little Mix, being the most notable cases. One can't help but wonder how much money these women spend on spray tan and if they stain all of their clothes and sheets.

Jesy Nelson from Little Mix
Miss Balegdah herself, Jesy Nelson is 100% white despite her convincing jamaican accent and stunning island glow. She's often seen sporting heavily overlined lips, long party city wigs, and drenched in tanning oil. PB&Nelsons glow is so convincing that people often think she's the second WOC in the band instead of actual WOC Jade Thirlwall.



https://instagram.com/p/BfZSYHqh7_i

Her natural skin color:


Ariana Grande
Pete Davidson’s never-wife Ariana Grande is an actress, singer, and shockingly, not latina. Despite the heavy tan, recently plumped lips, and rolodex of AAVE influenced twitter comments to keep her hip to the youth, Ariana is 100% mayo. While many argue that "deep tanning" is merely a Cultural Institution amongst italians, op can only say: "thank u, next (bullshit excuse)."




Kylie Jenner
The crown heiress of white women pretending to be black for attention, Kylie Jenner’s transformation from calabasas cornbread to Oakland baddie was likely inevitable given her equally obsessed family.

          Midterm Results Are In, But 3 Big Manufacturing Questions Remain      Cache   Translate Page      

President Donald Trump, the professed master of “the art of the deal,” certainly has some bargaining ahead of him when the newly-elected Congress convenes in January. However, with broad bipartisan support from voters, manufacturing promises to be the perfect opportunity for a Democrat-controlled House of Representatives and Republican-controlled Senate to find common ground and help the American worker.

We’ve outlined three major questions for the 116th Congress to consider as it tackles manufacturing issues.

 

1. What’s next for the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA)?

The greatest question when it comes to passage of the USMCA is whether the U.S. will replace tariffs on Canadian and Mexican steel with quotas – though Canadian President Justin Trudeau has affirmed that Canada’s agreement to the deal is not dependent on this. When the deal comes to Congress, labor standards implementation questions could delay passage.  

As for other trade fronts, U.S. strategy in addressing China trade cheating looks likely to stay on the course Trump set – an approach that the public is willing to see through as well.   

2. Will infrastructure get its due attention and action?

Infrastructure may finally -- FINALLY! -- come to the forefront of Congressional objectives.

Trump has long promised an infrastructure plan, but efforts to solidify these promises and bring them to fruition have left much to be desired. With House Democrats putting infrastructure investment at the top of their to-do lists, hope is mounting that the combined effort of the White House and Congress can build momentum into action.

Though Democrats’ plans for funding are likely to differ from what Trump envisions, long overdue infrastructure investment would be a win for the president, Congress, and, most importantly, the economy and workers. (Every $1 billion in transportation infrastructure investment would create over 21,000 jobs, according to a 2014 report.)

3. Will job training win new investment?

Around the country, as low unemployment rates shrink the job applicant pool, job training has become an ever-more critical issue for manufacturers.

The White House released a plan to advance American leadership in advanced manufacturing in October, outlining increased national investment in apprenticeship programs. Could Congress open the way for more funding?  

Newly-elected Democrats in the House, like Haley Stevens of Michigan, who has a history in manufacturing workforce development, could lead the way.  

 

Workers are depending on Congress and the president to collaborate and support American manufacturing. As polling shows, Americans want manufacturing to be a national priority. It's up to Congress and the president to make it happen.
