          Yes, There's Still Something You Can Do Today Besides Voting      Cache   Translate Page      

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


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



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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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




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

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

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

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

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

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

          Jeremiah Hurst Adds His Name To The List Of All Iowa Points Late Model Champions      Cache   Translate Page      
In the fifty-second season of compiling the All Iowa Points Jeremiah Hurst becomes the twenty-third different driver to earn the title of Late Model champion. The list of champions includes ten National Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame members Red Droste, Verlin Eaker, Ed Sanger, Curt Hansen, Gary Webb, Tom Hearst, Ken Walton, Roger Dolan,  Ray Guss Jr. and Joe Kosiski, and if not for health reasons Hurst might have been an All Iowa champion a few years earlier as he was the point leader mid-season before having to step away from the sport for a bit.

Teaming up with the Roberts Racing Team car #58, a team that won four straight All Iowa Points titles with Ray Guss Jr. from 2009 through 2012, Hurst had a stellar 2018 season taking seven feature wins and finishing in the top five an impressive forty-two times. Seventeen of those were runner-up finishes allowing him to edge out the defending champion Matt Ryan by eighteen points. It was another great year for Ryan with eleven feature victories in thirty-seven top five runs.

Three time All Iowa Points Modified champion Ryan Dolan (2010 - 2012) had his best season in a Late Model finishing in the third position with ten wins to his credit while early season leader Andy Nezworski ranked fourth taking nine feature wins. Todd Cooney who is still chasing his first AIP title despite having the most points accumulated in the division since the 2000 season rounds out the top five with eleven wins this year. Four time champion Rob Toland (2004, 2006-07, 2016) finished tenth.

The "Newcomer of the Year", or the driver who has never had a top five finish in the division until 2018 is Mike Mills who raced in the 9:1 Late Model division in Dubuque this season. Mills was tied for the 53rd position on the list.

We will continue to release the final 2018 All Iowa Points by division as this week goes on with the Modifieds up next.

          Is Richard Pitino likely to be the first coach fired this season?      Cache   Translate Page      
Welcome to the Tuesday edition of The Cooler, where we always keep the hot side hot and the cold side cold. Let’s get to it: *In advance of the first big night of men’s college basketball action — including the Gophers’ opener against Omaha at Williams Arena — comes a reminder from an online betting web site of just what might be at stake for head coach Richard Pitino this year. Per CBSSports.com, the site BetDSI has labeled Pitino as the most likely candidate to be fired first among coaches this season. The odds are still 2.5 to 1 of him being the first to go — barely ahead of Maryland’s Mark Turgeon at 3 to 1 and certainly more likely to not happen than to happen — but it’s still instructive. At the very least, it underscores the perceived expectations for the Gophers this year, who finished a disappointing 15-17 last season after reaching the NCAA tourney two years ago. Last season was a mess filled with injuries — chronicled nicely here by Marcus Fuller — but the Gophers have the talent to make the NCAA field this year. If it doesn’t happen for Pitino, who has a 90-78 record which includes a disappointing 31-59 Big Ten mark in five seasons, he is certainly a candidate to be replaced by the athletic director who inherited him, Mark Coyle. *In a video that raises all sorts of interesting questions, several Ottawa Senators players were recorded during a recent Uber ride on a road trip in Phoenix bad-mouthing their coaches. The video was posted on YouTube and Twitter, though it has been subsequently taken down. The Ottawa Citizen has details, and the strongest comments come from Senators forward Matt Duchene. He can be heard ripping the coaching skills of assistant Marty Raymond. “Here’s the other thing, too. We don’t change anything, ever. So why do we even have a meeting? I haven’t paid attention in three weeks.” The players involved issued an apology Monday night. The bigger fallout could come from the perception of Uber, where passengers should have a reasonable expectation of privacy. *After the Cowboys lost 28-14 to the Texans on Monday Night, Hall of Fame QB Troy Aikman went on the radio Tuesday and blasted the organization’s current state. “I talk to people who have been inside the building and have a pretty good understanding of how things are run, and in a lot of ways there’s a lot of dysfunction,” he said, per the Dallas News transcription. “And that has to change if this team is going to be able to compete on a consistent basis like the teams you look to around the league that seemingly are in the hunt each and every year.” Dallas recently traded a first round pick for Amari Cooper, who had a TD grab Monday, in a desperate attempt to jump-start their season. The Vikings did that in 2010 with Randy Moss, and you’ll recall it didn’t work out so well.

Aladdin opened on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theatre to critical acclaim on March 20, 2014 and quickly established itself as one of the biggest new blockbusters in recent years, breaking 13 New Amsterdam Theatre house records and welcoming over seven million people worldwide. Its global footprint has expanded to include productions in Tokyo, Hamburg, London and Australia, in addition to the two U.S. productions.

About Aladdin

Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, the show features music by Tony Award and eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Sister Act), lyrics by two-time Oscar winner Howard Ashman (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid), three-time Tony Award and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice (Evita, Aida) and four-time Tony Award nominee Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer), with a book by Beguelin, and is directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon).

Aladdin, adapted from the Academy Award-winning animated Disney film and centuries-old folktales including "One Thousand and One Nights," is brought to fresh theatrical life in this bold new musical. Aladdin's journey sweeps audiences into an exotic world of daring adventure, classic comedy and timeless romance. This new production features a full score, including the five cherished songs from the Academy Award-winning soundtrack and more written especially for the stage.

The animated film Aladdin was released by Disney in 1992 and was a critical and box office smash, becoming the highest-grossing film of the year.

The film won the Oscar for Best Original Score and introduced the hit song "A Whole New World," which won the second of the film's two Academy Awards as Best Original Song. The Peabo Bryson/Regina Belle recording of the tune soared to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Aladdin is designed by seven-time Tony-winning scenic designer Bob Crowley, six-time Tony-winning lighting designer Natasha Katz, two-time Tony-winning costume designer Gregg Barnes and sound designer Ken Travis.

The production team also includes illusion designer Jim Steinmeyer, hair designer Josh Marquette and makeup designer Milagros Medina-Cerdeira. The music team is headed by music supervisor and music director Michael Kosarin, who also created the vocal and incidental music arrangements, joined by orchestrator Danny Troob and dance music arranger Glen Kelly.

Συνωστισμός πολεμικών πλοίων και υποβρυχίων στην Ανατολική Μεσόγειο
Aυτό που συμβαίνει τούτες τις ημέρες στην Ανατολική Μεσόγειο, δεν έχει ξανασυμβεί. Ένα πλήθος πολεμικών πλοίων περιπολούν, ενόψει της άφιξης στο λιμάνι της Λεμεσού του γεωτρύπανου της Exxon Mobil.
 Είναι τόσος μεγάλος ο συνωστισμός πολεμικών πλοίων στην επιφάνεια και υποβρυχίων στον βυθό που υπάρχει σοβαρότατος κίνδυνος ατυχήματος. Ήδη συνέβη το εξής απρόοπτο:
 
Η συσσωρευμένη παρουσία δυνάμεων φαίνεται (όπως αναφέρει δημοσίευμα του SigmaLive) πως έχει αρχίσει να προκαλεί ήδη προβλήματα στα ηλεκτρονικά συστήματα των πλοίων. Σε οδηγία που εξέδωσε η Ναυτική Διοίκηση των Ηνωμένων Πολιτειών σημειώνει: «Πολλές περιπτώσεις σημαντικών παρεμβολών GPS εξακολουθούν να αναφέρονται από πλοία και αεροσκάφη που λειτουργούν στην Ανατολική Μεσόγειο». Οι αναφορές αυτές συγκεντρώθηκαν κοντά στο Port Said, στην Αίγυπτο, στο κανάλι του Σουέζ και κοντά στην Κυπριακή Δημοκρατία.
Πρόσθετες περιπτώσεις παρόμοιων παρεμβολών αναφέρθηκαν τον Οκτώβριο του 2018 κοντά στο λιμάνι Τζέντα στην Σαουδική Αραβία. Αυτή η παρεμβολή έχει ως αποτέλεσμα απώλεια ή αλλοιωμένα σήματα GPS που επηρεάζουν τη πλοήγηση, τον χρονομετρητή με βάση το GPS και τον επικοινωνιακό εξοπλισμό.
Πάντως μέχρι στιγμής παραμένει άγνωστη η ακριβής αιτία που προκαλεί το πρόβλημα αυτό, αφού είναι κάτι που δεν εντοπίζεται και δεν είναι σίγουρο κατά πόσο συνδέεται με τις διάφορες ναυτικές ασκήσεις και στρατιωτικές επιχειρήσεις στην ευρύτερη θαλάσσια περιοχή.
Ιδού λοιπόν τα πολεμικά πλοία που αυτές τις ημέρες πλέον κοντά στην Κύπρο: Ορισμένα από αυτά είναι τα πολεμικά πλοία της Μόνιμης Ναυτικής Ομάδας του ΝΑΤΟ 2, συμπεριλαμβανομένου του HNLMS De Ruyter του Βασιλικού Ναυτικού της Ολλανδίας, της φρεγάτας :Eλλη και Νικηφόρος Φωκάς της Ελλάδας, το HMCS Ville de Québec του Βασιλικού Καναδικού Ναυτικού, των τεσσάρων αμερικανικών Tomahawk των αντιτορπιλικών USS Carney, USS Ross, USS Winston S. Churchill και USS Bulkeley. Ακόμη και η ναυαρχίδα του έκτου στόλου USS Mount Whitney του αμερικανικού ναυτικού εμφανίστηκε την περιοχή μαζί με τουλάχιστον τρία πυρηνικά υποβρύχια πολλαπλών σκοπών του Λος Άντζελες, ένα από τα οποία ήταν το USS Newport News, το οποία είχε προηγουμένως σταθμεύσει στο Γιβραλτάρ.
Όλα αυτά ενώ οι τούρκοι επιχειρούν αναβάθμιση της ναυτικής τους παρουσίας και οι Αιγύπτιοι κάνουν επίδειξη ναυτικής ισχύος με στρατιωτικές ασκήσεις για προστασία του κοιτάσματος Ζορ. Η Γαλλία διατηρεί επίσης τη φρεγάτα της κατηγορίας FREMM Auvergne, και το γερμανικό FGS Augsburg πέρασε από το Στενό του Γιβραλτάρ και εισήλθε στη Μεσόγειο Θάλασσα στις 21 Σεπτεμβρίου. Παράλληλα, το Ρωσικό Ναυτικό αυξάνει την παρουσία του στην Ανατολική Μεσόγειο ενώ την ίδια ώρα δημοσιεύματα αναφέρουν πως κινέζικα πλοία έχουν διαταχθεί να πάνε στις ακτές της Συρίας και να ενταχθούν στον ρωσικό στόλο. Συγκεκριμένα χθες η υπηρεσία Τύπου του στόλου της Μαύρης Θάλασσας του Ρωσικού Ναυτικού, ανακοίνωσε πως η φρεγάτα 11356P / M, Admiral Makarov, αναχώρησε από το Λιμάνι της Σεβαστούπολης προκειμένου να ενταχθεί στη ρωσική ναυτική ομάδα στην Ανατολική Μεσόγειο.

As Election Day approaches, Paul Ryan plants a story at Politico that shift the blame in the event that Republicans lose the House. According to Ryan, it'll all be President Trump's fault if that happens, because in the final days of the campaign he talked too much about immigration:
House Republicans in panic mode

Worries deepen that Trump's charged immigration rhetoric will cost the GOP more seats.


House Speaker Paul Ryan got President Donald Trump on the phone Sunday for one final plea on behalf of anxious Republicans: Please, please talk up the booming economy in the final hours before Election Day.

But Trump, unsurprisingly, had another issue on his mind. He boasted to Ryan that his focus on immigration has fired up the base, according to a source familiar with the call.

Two days out from an expected Democratic takeover of the House, Republicans focused on the chamber are profoundly worried that Trump’s obsession with all things immigration will exacerbate their losses....

But they now fear Trump went overboard — and that it could cost them dearly in key suburban districts....
Ryan has some nerve. His super PAC, the Congressional Leadership Fund, boasted last week that was running ads like this in key races:

The ad says Finkenauer is “too liberal for Iowa,” citing her stances on healthcare and immigration.



CLF is also responsible for racist ads targeting the brief rap career of Antonio Delgado, a House candidate in New York's 19th District who's a Rhodes scholar and Harvard Law graduate (and who is originally from Schnenectady, not New York City):



I know what Ryan is thinking. In the traditional approach to elections, low-level surrogates and PACs that aren't officially affiliated with the candidate do the down-and-dirty attacking while the candidates themselves, and the president as the figurehead of the party, pretend to be above it all and speak only in high-minded language.

Trump isn't following that script. He's saying all the things that aren't supposed to be directly linked to the party.

I don't understand why Trump supporters think the president is an honest man, but at least he's being honest about what Republicans are running on.

If Democrats win the House, Ryan will insist he doesn't deserve any of the blame. He wanted to go high, not low! The losses weren't his fault!

I can assure you that credulous reporters will believe him.

Election Day is upon us, and most of the major nonpartisan handicappers and number-crunching forecasters are predicting the same thing: Democrats will overcome a host of structural disadvantages to retake the House, while Republicans will hold onto the Senate, in no small part because of the quirks of the electoral calendar.

For the record, that’s what I expect to happen as well. But that established consensus can obscure a reality that can’t be ignored: The available evidence suggests those are the most likely outcomes, but it does not guarantee them—a lesson that 2016 made painfully clear. It is all but certain that there will be a few big surprises on Tuesday night that no one will have seen coming on Tuesday morning. A shocker or three in the Senate, or a whole bunch of them in the House, won’t necessarily alter the big picture. But if the surprises keep piling up and happen in just the right places, we just might be looking at a Democratic Senate, a GOP House, or both.

Here, then, are a few plausible ways the prevailing wisdom could go bust.

A Democratic Senate

Flipping the Senate was always going to be a heavy lift for Democrats, despite control of the upper chamber sitting just two seats away. More than half of the Democrats’ 49-member caucus is on the ballot on Tuesday, and 10 of those 26 incumbents are in states Donald Trump won two years ago. Republicans, meanwhile, are defending just nine of their 51 seats, only one of which is in a state Hillary Clinton won (Nevada, by 2.4 percent) and half of which are Mitt Romney–running-in-Utah safe. But while it’s a historically horrendous map for Democrats, it’s not an impossible one to navigate.

Here’s how Democrats could net the two seats they need for a 51-seat majority.

Scenario 1: Heidi holds on

Of the half-dozen or so vulnerable Democratic incumbents, North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp is thought to be in the most danger. She’s down double digits in the polls to GOP Rep.
Kevin Cramer in a state Trump won by 36 percentage points. The Cook Political Report and other handicappers rate the race as “Lean Republican,” the only Democratic seat right of the tossup column. FiveThirtyEight’s classic model has Cramer as a 3-in-4 favorite. And CNN pegs Cramer’s most likely margin of victory at 8 percentage points, though its range of forecasted outcomes runs from a 19-percentage-point win by Cramer to a 4-percentage-point win by Heitkamp.

If Heitkamp were to pull this one out, though, that would fundamentally change the equation. Democrats currently have four credible chances of picking up a seat: Arizona, Nevada, Texas, and Tennessee. But there’s a clear divide between the first two and the last two on that list. FiveThirtyEight and CNN both have Democrat Kyrsten Sinema as a mild favorite to win a close race against Martha McSally in Arizona. Meanwhile in Nevada, FiveThirtyEight sees Democrat Jacky Rosen as the slight favorite and CNN sees her as the tiniest of underdogs against GOP Sen. Dean Heller. Meanwhile, both sites see Beto O’Rourke and Phil Bredesen as considerably longer shots in Texas and Tennessee, respectively. If Heitkamp and the rest of the Democratic incumbents can survive, winning eminently winnable races in Arizona and Nevada would be enough to win the Senate. If Heitkamp loses, though, Democrats will need to offset it with a bona fide upset somewhere else.

Scenario 2: Beto O’Rourke to the rescue

The path to 51 gets narrower if Heitkamp or another one of her Senate colleagues goes down, but it doesn’t close completely. Democrats would need a hero to emerge, most likely either in Texas or Tennessee. Of the two, Beto is considered the slightly better bet: FiveThirtyEight’s classic model, for instance, gives the Texan a 2-in-9 chance of beating Ted Cruz, to Bredesen’s 1-in-5 chance of beating Marsha Blackburn. If Beto takes down Cruz, he’d cement his status as a progressive folk hero. But if Beto takes down Cruz and becomes the 51st Democratic senator in the process? He’d become a god to the left.

Scenario 3: A very special surprise

If Heidi falls and Beto and Bredesen come up short—or some other less likely combination of events gets Democrats to 50 seats—Democrats could still be alive. Their last hope would be Tuesday’s special election in Mississippi, which is very special indeed: There were no primaries to winnow the field, there are no party affiliations listed on the ballot to guide voters, and there will be no election-night winner unless one of the four candidates secures a majority of the vote. That means a two-person runoff on Nov. 27 remains possible—and based on limited polling, maybe even probable—between the two favorites, interim GOP Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith and former Agriculture Secretary Mike Espy.* Cook has the race leaning Republican, meaning it’s technically competitive, but other handicappers like Inside Elections and Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball disagree. Regardless of Espy’s chances, though, a runoff would keep the Democratic dream of Senate control alive for at least a little longer.

A Republican House

Republicans are running into some serious historical headwinds as they try to limit Democrats’ gains below the 23 seats they need to take the speaker’s gavel. The party that controls the presidency has lost congressional seats in 35 out of the 38 midterms dating back to the end of the Civil War. And according to the Cook Political Report’s count, there have been seven midterm elections since 1966 where a president’s approval rating “hovered” below 50 percent—a, um, generous term for where Trump’s sits at the moment—and in those, the opposing party has picked up at least two dozen House seats in all but one. The sole exception was in 2014 in the middle of Barack Obama’s second term. The GOP won “only” 13 seats that year, in no small part because Democrats didn’t have all that many to lose after getting shellacked in the 2010 midterms.

Unlike in the Senate, where roughly one-third of the seats are up at any given time, the entire lower chamber is on the ballot every two years. That makes plotting out if-then paths to a GOP House insanely complicated, so let’s instead consider the types of races Republicans will need to win on Tuesday in order to keep the House. For the sake of simplicity, we’ll work off of Cook’s ratings and FiveThirtyEight’s classic model (as of midday Monday) to plot a path to another GOP House.

Where Republicans are the favorites

Cook counts a total of 47 Republican seats as tossups or worse for the GOP, giving Democrats plenty of opportunities to pick up the 23 seats they need. But before Republicans worry about winning the bulk of those battlegrounds, first they need to lock down the seats where they have the advantage but by are no means shoe-ins—a “Lean Republican” list that includes 28 GOP seats. Republicans don’t need to win all those districts, but they’ll need to offset any losses in this column with corresponding wins in districts that aren’t nearly as friendly. A small sampling of the kind of races we’re talking about:

• Iowa’s 4th, where bigoted Rep. Steve King is a 6-in-7 favorite against former pro baseball player J.D. Scholten in a rural district that went for Trump by 27 percentage points after going for Mitt Romney by 8 percentage points six years ago.

• California’s 50th, where indicted Rep. Duncan Hunter is a 7-in-9 favorite against former Obama administration official Ammar Campa-Najjar in a suburban San Diego district that went for Trump by 15 percentage points after going for Romney by 23 percentage points.

• Wisconsin’s 1st, where Speaker Paul Ryan is retiring and his former staffer, Bryan Steil, is a 7-in-9 favorite against union steelworker Randy Bryce in a gerrymandered district Trump won by 10 after Romney (with Ryan as his running mate) won by 4.

• Nebraska’s 2nd, where Rep. Don Bacon is the 4-in-7 favorite against nonprofit executive Kara Eastman in an Omaha-area district that went for Trump by just 2 after going for Romney by 7.

Republicans can also add to their cushion by winning in Minnesota’s 8th, the only Democratic seat in the Lean Republican column and one of just two such districts where Republicans are favorites. The GOP nominee, retired police office Pete Stauber, is a 4-in-5 favorite against former state lawmaker Joe Radinovich in that rural district, which went for Trump by 16 percentage points after going for Obama by 6. (The other Democratic district where the GOP is favored is Pennsylvania’s new 14th, which became more conservative after the state supreme court redrew the state’s map earlier this year.)

Where things could go either way

From there, the GOP will need to keep the momentum going in the toss-up column, where 29 of the 30 races are for Republican seats. A sampling:

• Texas’ 23rd, where Rep. Will Hurd is a 7-in-9 favorite against Air Force vet Gina Ortiz Jones in a San Antonio–area district that went for Clinton by 4 percentage points after going for Romney by 3.

• North Carolina’s 9th, where conservative pastor Mark Harris knocked off Rep. Robert Pittenger in the GOP primary and is now a 5-in-9 favorite against veteran Dan McCready in a Charlotte-area district that went for both Trump and Romney by 12.

• Virginia’s 7th, where Rep. Dave Brat is a 4-in-7 favorite against former CIA operations officer Abigail Spanberger in a suburban and rural Richmond district that went for Trump by 7 after going for Romney by 11.

• Kentucky’s 6th, where Rep. Andy Barr is a 5-in-9 favorite against former fighter pilot and viral star Amy McGrath in a Lexington-area district that went for Trump by 15 and Romney by 14.

• Utah’s 4th, where Rep. Mia Love is a 3-in-8 underdog against Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams in a Salt Lake City–area district that went for Trump by 7 after going for Romney by 37.

• Iowa’s 3rd, where Rep. David Young is a 3-in-10 underdog against Cindy Axne in a Des Moines–area district that went for Trump by 4 percentage points after going for Obama by the same margin.

The sole Democratic toss-up? The open seat for Minnesota’s 1st, where four-time GOP candidate Jim Hagedorn is a 4-in-9 underdog against Army vet Dan Feehan in the rural district that went for Trump by 15 percentage points after going for Obama by 1 percentage point.

Where they’ll need to pull off the upsets

Barring a near-sweep of those races, the GOP will still have some work to do to keep the House. Democrats are the clear favorite in a total of 18 GOP districts; in five of them, Cook doesn’t even give the GOP a chance. In a hypothetical world, then, where Republicans hold on to each and every of the 28 GOP seats that lean their way and win two-thirds of the 30 toss-ups, they’d still need to score a handful of upsets in the group of 13 GOP seats that Lean Democrat. A sampling:

• Kansas’ 3rd, where Rep. Kevin Yoder is a 1-in-7 underdog against attorney and former MMA fighter Sharice Davids in a Kansas City–area district that went for Clinton by 1 percentage point after going for Romney by 10 in 2012.

• Colorado’s 6th, where Rep. Mike Coffman is a 1-in-9 underdog against Army veteran Jason Crow in a suburban Denver district that went for Clinton by 9 percentage points after going for Obama by 5 percentage points.

• Iowa’s 1st, where Rep. Rod Blum is a 1-in-20 underdog against state Rep. Abby Finkenauer in a Cedar Rapids–area district that went for Trump by 4 after going for Obama by 14.

• California’s 49th, where state tax official Diane Harkey is a 1-in-30 underdog against attorney Mike Levin in this San Diego–area district that went for Clinton by 8 percentage points after going for Romney by 7 percentage points.

Unlike in the Senate, there is no single House race of outsize importance, and so there are myriad ways either party can cobble together the 218 seats it needs for a majority. Like Senate Democrats, however, House Republicans are going to need to beat the odds more often than they don’t on Tuesday if they’re going to be celebrating on Wednesday.

Is that probable? By definition, no. Is it possible? By definition, yes.

Reporter
Educational psychologist David Berliner is one of this country’s most distinguished education researchers. 
Regents’ professor emeritus at Arizona State University, he is a former president of the American Educational Research Association and a former dean of the College of Education at Arizona State. He has also taught at the University of Arizona, the University of Massachusetts and Stanford University, as well as universities in Canada, Australia, the Netherlands, Denmark, Spain and Switzerland.
Berliner has won numerous awards in education and written more than 200 articles, chapters and books. Among his best-known works are two books he co-wrote, “The Manufactured Crisis: Myths, Fraud, and the Attack on America’s Public Schools” and “Collateral Damage: How High-Stakes Testing Corrupts America’s Schools.” He co-edited the first handbook of educational psychology, and his most recent co-written book, “50 Myths & Lies That Threaten America’s Public Schools,” was published in 2014.
Berliner sent the following to me. He explained that some of his students had asked how he planned to vote in the midterm elections next month, and he decided to explain in written detail. I am publishing it because it is more than an explanation of one man’s electoral preferences but a detailed look at public schools today and the state of efforts to “reform” them.

By David Berliner
As the midterm elections draw near my students asked me to talk a bit about my voting preferences. I decided to write out my answer to them because my response is lengthy and perhaps a bit unusual.
I asked my students and colleagues not to vote for those who want to improve or reform the schools. I told them that I was done voting for politicians who spout this foolishness over and over again! Too many of them are wasting their time, my time, our money, and they are hurting our country, as well.
I explained that the big problems of American education are not in America’s schools. So, reforming the schools, as Jean Anyon once said, is like trying to clean the air on one side of a screen door. It cannot be done!
It’s neither this nations’ teachers nor its curriculum that impede the achievement of our children. The roots of America’s educational problems are in the numbers of Americans who live in poverty. America’s educational problems are predominantly in the numbers of kids and their families who are homeless; whose families have no access to Medicaid or other medical services. These are often families to whom low-birth-weight babies are frequently born, leading to many more children needing special education.
Educational problems also have roots in the numbers of kids living in dysfunctional families where opioid and other drug addictions, or mental illness, is not treated. Our educational problems have their roots in families where food insecurity or hunger is a regular occurrence, or where those with increased lead levels in their bloodstream get no treatments before arriving at a schools’ doorsteps. Our problems stem also from the harsh incarceration laws that break up families instead of counseling them and trying to keep them together. And our problems relate to harsh immigration policies that keep millions of families too frightened to seek out better lives for themselves and their children.
Yes, of course, there are in-school problems that need fixing, such as the re-employment of all the social workers, nurses, counselors and school psychologists lost after the recession of 2008. While all these people are important staff at their schools, we should remember that their skills are particularly needed because of all the problems I just mentioned above.
So many of these problems of American education have their start in the tracking of America’s children — but not necessarily by their schools! Our children are tracked into different neighborhoods on the basis of their family’s income, ethnicity, and race. This is where our school problems begin. We seem blind to the fact that housing policies that promote that kind of segregation are educational policies, as well.
When you allow overwhelmingly wealthy, middle-class, and poor neighborhoods to develop, you destroy the chance for the neighborhood school to help better our children by bringing diverse income, racial, and ethnic groups together.
Neighborhood schools, affectionately supported in American folk beliefs as a great equalizer in the melting pot we think of as America, now perform on assessments almost exactly as that neighborhoods’ income predicts they will. The neighborhood school in a society with an apartheid-lite housing policy is killing us!
Do we have an apartheid-lite system of education? We certainly do not have the legally sanctioned apartheid of South Africa. But we should recognize that we do have heavily segregated systems of housing. In New York and Illinois, over 60 percent of black kids go to schools where 90-100 percent of the kids are nonwhite and mostly poor. In California, Texas and Rhode Island, 50 percent or more of Latino kids go to schools where 90-100 percent of the kids are also not white, and often poor. Similar statistics hold for American Indian kids. And throughout rural America there is almost always a “wrong-side-of-the-tracks” neighborhood, or a trailer park area, in which poorer people are expected to live. And kids in those neighborhoods generally go to schools with the other kids from those neighborhoods.
These realities of contemporary American life have powerful effects on schooling in America. For example, I can predict quite accurately the percentage of kids that score at certain levels on standardized tests by knowing characteristics of the families who send their kids to their neighborhood school. I don’t need to know anything at all about the teachers or curriculum at that school. If I want to, I can probably skip the expense of the test!
Research demonstrates that If you know the average income, the average level of parental education, and the percentage of single-parent households in a community — just these three variables — you can predict with great accuracy the performance on the standardized test scores used by that community to judge its schools. We don’t really have to give the tests because we already can accurately predict the aggregate scores of schools and townships. It’s not the quality of our teachers or curriculum that allows such remarkably accurate predictions: Demographics allow for that. Although demographics may not be destiny for an individual, it is the best predictor of a school’s outcomes — independent of that school’s teachers, administrators and curriculum!
We can demonstrate that fact again by going to America’s heartland, Nebraska. In a recent year, the poverty rate in a middle school in the Elkhorn school district, near Omaha, was under 3 percent. In that same year the poverty rate in a middle school in the nearby city of Omaha was about 90 percent. If you determined the poverty rate for every middle school and correlated that with their achievement scores in reading on the Nebraska State Accountability system (NeSA), you would find that they correlate -.92. This is almost perfect prediction!
The higher the poverty rate, the lower the scores. This allows me, if I wanted to, to skip the test altogether because I can predict with great accuracy the aggregate performance of the students in these Nebraska schools. And if I wanted to know how individual students were doing, I would simply ask a teacher. They really are quite good at describing the skills possessed by each of their students!
What we are left to wonder about from Nebraska’s data is this: Do all the good teachers and administrators in Nebraska work in the Elkhorn district? Similarly, we must wonder if all the bad teachers and administrators work in Omaha’s poorest schools? I don’t think so! It is much more likely to be family income, and all that correlates with income, that determines the standardized achievement test scores in Nebraska and elsewhere.
Another research study demonstrates that standardized achievement tests show huge differences in scores based on the income of students’ families, and the schools to which that family income allows access. In this international test with an average score of about 500, low-income kids, in schools that cater to low-income kids, scored 455. But high-income kids in schools that cater to high-income kids scored 607! That is about a standard deviation and half difference — a huge difference. The fiscal, social, and intellectual capital available to kids in these socioeconomically separated schools produces these large differences — independent of the quality of teachers, administrators, or the curriculum used.
These differences in school achievement occur as a function of differences in family income and the housing choices associated with family income, as well as the employment policies, health policies, and policies about law enforcement and the sentencing of those found guilty of crimes. It is this profusion of policies, rarely thought about simultaneously, that determines the huge differences in achievement scores between schools, and between school districts.
It’s really not the teachers. It’s really not the curriculum. It is us! We the people, inhabiting the richest country in the world, have kept too many vulnerable families in positions of vulnerability for far too long. That is what affects their children and the achievement levels of the schools attended by those children. Did you know that when you fall into poverty in the United States of America through loss of job, illness, drug or gambling addiction problems, and the like, you are likely to spend more time in poverty than in many other Western countries? Other countries have social services to get families back on track.
We have limited such services, and families that fall into poverty in the United States are more likely to spend many more years in poverty than in other Western countries. I think too many contemporary lawmakers in the United States believe what our Founding Fathers believed — namely, that it is God’s will that some families fall into poverty. Meanwhile, in many European democracies, the state tries to relieve god of her responsibility to determine which families are destined to live in poverty!
Despite the irrefutable relationship of poverty to school achievement, some states, like my own, go on to promote an insulting and highly misleading educational policy. We Arizonans grade our schools A-F (based on their test scores). When we do this, of course, all we have done is judge, from A-F, the kinds of lives that are lived by the majority of the kids at that school. In reality, it’s not the quality of the schools that is assessed. Instead, what is assessed are the lives of the families who attend those schools. The grading of schools serves the real estate community quite well. But those grades tell the public nothing about the quality of teaching and caring in a particular school.
Fifty years ago, James Coleman shocked the education community by asserting that a plethora of out-of-school factors were the real determinants of in-school quality. A recent re-analysis of that report found that Coleman did not recognize in his own data the power of the cohort in a grade, or in a school, to also have a large influence on the quality of schooling, separate from the out-of-school factors that determine school quality.
Independent of those out-of-school factors (such as family income and neighborhood characteristics) were the characteristics of the cohort in one’s class or school. The cohort had independent effects on learning outcomes. What this means is that in America’s neighborhood schools, an apartheid-lite system of housing affects scores in two ways: first through the out-of-school factors that negatively affect achievement, and secondly, though powerful cohort effects in the schools attended by children of a particular neighborhood.
Neighborhoods that might be just a few blocks from each other have a formidable influence on school cultures through the cohort effects at a school site. Students just a few blocks apart have been found to have quite different adult earnings and social status. Middle-class visions of appropriate behavior and preparation for college may be the norms developed at one neighborhood school, while lower-class visions of appropriate behavior and schooling could well be the norms that pervade another school just a few blocks away.
So the A-F grades given to schools according to their achievement test scores really have their roots in neighborhood income; the percentage of single-parent families in the neighborhood; the churn rates of teachers and administrators at the school, as well as the churn rate of families in the neighborhood; the absentee rates of students at the school; and so forth. These A-F grades simply do not provide insight into the quality of the teachers and the nurturance of students at a particular school site.
Neighborhood schools in the U.S. hurt our nation. But this is not a reason to support charter or private schools, which are too frequently highly selective about who they let in and who they are willing to keep in their schools. In a democracy, if any public dollars are used for schooling, that school should serve all our kids, just as we expect the police and fire departments to serve us all.
Despite the naysayers and advocates for charter and private education at public expense, it turns out that America’s public education system is remarkably successful. For example, on the recent PISA international tests, white public-school students in the U.S.A. outscored students in Korea and Hong Kong in science. That’s not too shabby, but it was underreported. And on the reading test, our white public-school kids outscored Korea and Japan, two nations that are often held up as models for our schools to emulate. Again, that’s not too shabby! We should note that white kids in the United States have a poverty rate of about 9 percent, while black and Hispanic kids, who did not score nearly as well, have poverty rates exceeding 20 percent! Could it be poverty and its sequelae, rather than teacher incompetence, is at the root of America’s educational problems?
Our public schools produced other effects our newspapers too often refuse to report. For example, in international ratings of entrepreneurship, we hold the highest ranking in the world, both for men and for woman. In international comparisons of creativity, we rank among the highest in the world. In gross domestic product earned per hour worked by American labor, we are by far the leaders of the industrialized world.
What we have is an amazingly successful system of public education, overall, but one that simultaneously fails too many of our minorities and too many of our poor people. In my opinion, democracy’s most serious contemporary problem is the fact that minority status and poverty are so highly correlated.
What would provide a public-school system that might work for all its attendees? I’d nominate housing policies that can help integrate various income and racial groups who attend our public schools; policies related to a minimum wage and employer-provided benefits, such that workers can afford decent housing and nutrition, and where workers can expect a decent pension at the end of their working lives; policies that provide access to health care for all; policies that help our police and our courts to be more family-friendly. The policies I see most helping our schools are not directed toward teaching and learning in our schools. My concerns are elsewhere.
I am certainly not against improving our schools. Like many others who study schooling, I have my own suggestions about how to do that, based on some solid research evidence. But if I can find them, I am only going to vote for those who understand that the root problems of our schools are not in our schools. It is past time that we stop worrying about reforming and improving our schools. Instead, we need to ensure that we have programs that can improve our society. Shifting our gaze away from schooling and looking instead at the quality of the lives lived by the families whose children attend our schools might prove to be the surest way to improve American education. From now on, candidates who understand that are the ones who will get my vote.

          Is Richard Pitino likely to be the first coach fired this season?      Cache   Translate Page      
Welcome to the Tuesday edition of The Cooler, where we always keep the hot side hot and the cold side cold. Let’s get to it: *In advance of the first big night of men’s college basketball action — including the Gophers’ opener against Omaha at Williams Arena — comes a reminder from an online betting web site of just what might be at stake for head coach Richard Pitino this year. Per CBSSports.com, the site BetDSI has labeled Pitino as the most likely candidate to be fired first among coaches this season. The odds are still 2.5 to 1 of him being the first to go — barely ahead of Maryland’s Mark Turgeon at 3 to 1 and certainly more likely to not happen than to happen — but it’s still instructive. At the very least, it underscores the perceived expectations for the Gophers this year, who finished a disappointing 15-17 last season after reaching the NCAA tourney two years ago. Last season was a mess filled with injuries — chronicled nicely here by Marcus Fuller — but the Gophers have the talent to make the NCAA field this year. If it doesn’t happen for Pitino, who has a 90-78 record which includes a disappointing 31-59 Big Ten mark in five seasons, he is certainly a candidate to be replaced by the athletic director who inherited him, Mark Coyle. *In a video that raises all sorts of interesting questions, several Ottawa Senators players were recorded during a recent Uber ride on a road trip in Phoenix bad-mouthing their coaches. The video was posted on YouTube and Twitter, though it has been subsequently taken down. The Ottawa Citizen has details, and the strongest comments come from Senators forward Matt Duchene. He can be heard ripping the coaching skills of assistant Marty Raymond. “Here’s the other thing, too. We don’t change anything, ever. So why do we even have a meeting? I haven’t paid attention in three weeks.” The players involved issued an apology Monday night. The bigger fallout could come from the perception of Uber, where passengers should have a reasonable expectation of privacy. *After the Cowboys lost 28-14 to the Texans on Monday Night, Hall of Fame QB Troy Aikman went on the radio Tuesday and blasted the organization’s current state. “I talk to people who have been inside the building and have a pretty good understanding of how things are run, and in a lot of ways there’s a lot of dysfunction,” he said, per the Dallas News transcription. “And that has to change if this team is going to be able to compete on a consistent basis like the teams you look to around the league that seemingly are in the hunt each and every year.” Dallas recently traded a first round pick for Amari Cooper, who had a TD grab Monday, in a desperate attempt to jump-start their season. The Vikings did that in 2010 with Randy Moss, and you’ll recall it didn’t work out so well.

Butler chartered a plane for both of them to jet to the game quickly; Butler ended up not being able to make it, but Jones still took the charter and got to see Tre’s debut — a seven-assist, no turnover performance in Duke’s dominant 118-84 victory. “That’s my guy,” Jones said during the game while being interviewed by ESPN in regards to Butler helping out. “Very selfless.” That said, it’s quite a long day for Jones. The flight time between Los Angeles and Indianapolis is more than 4 hours, and he did that twice on Tuesday — including a postgame flight that probably landed at 1 a.m. or later Pacific time. He’ll probably need a pretty good nap after shootaround to be fully ready for the Lakers tonight. *It’s probably a good thing that Karl-Anthony Towns didn’t hop on that flight to see his alma mater battle Duke. He would be tired and smarting even more over the 34-point loss. Instead, he just has to live with Jones gloating on Twitter (and presumably in person). *Speaking of college hoops, and in fairness to the Gophers: If their freshmen continue to play like they did in Tuesday’s 104-76 victory over Omaha in the opener, Richard Pitino won’t have to worry at all about job security. The Gophers have the right mix of veterans and newcomers to be an NCAA tournament team. That doesn’t guarantee anything if their development stalls or injuries wreck the season again, but it should be reason for early-season optimism. *There’s a lot of chatter from Miami writers that Josh Richardson — the centerpiece of a proposed Jimmy Butler trade that was close to happening a few weeks back before it fell apart — is off to such a good start this season that trading him doesn’t make any sense. If you combine his numbers — 21.4 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists so far this year — with his age (25, four years younger than Butler) and salary (four-year, $42 million contract that already looks like a bargain, particularly compared to the five years, $190 that Butler will want), it’s hard to argue with that. I still think Miami would include him in a Butler deal because Butler is going to be the superior player over the next 3-5 years and can transform teams into winners (like he did in Minnesota). But if you’re a Wolves fan and the Butler deal ultimately involves a different team and player there will be genuine feelings of regret.

          Рецензия SHOTGUN MESSIAH «Second Coming» (1991) Оценка: 7/10      Cache   Translate Page      
Оценивать «Второе пришествие» шведского мессии, на самом деле, не так просто, ибо последствия произошедших с момента выхода одноимённого дебютника изменений были довольно двоякими. Вставший за микрофонную стойку Тим Шёльд, в перспективе, всё же стал катализатором изменений стилистики группы, но на данный момент общий курс не сильно отличался от повестки дня на MTV (несмотря на недавний выход "Nevermind"). А вот на гитаре Гарри Коди внимания стоит заострить побольше. После «ванхаленоподобного» бенефиса на первом альбоме, хоть и вызвавшим оскомину своей далеко не первой свежестью, мистер Кемппайнен просто-таки обязан был направить свой инструмент в банальное, но столь необходимое для групп своей стилевой ниши русло хитовости. Но едва нащупанный в тот раз мелодический бугорок, сейчас же едва оказался не похоронен пеленой поплотневшего чуть ли не по хэви-металлическим меркам звука.

Плохо? Не забываем про упомянутую мной двоякость. То самое умеренно увесистое «дж-дж» оказалось сдружено с до боли симпатичными по-панковски простыми ритмами, лишь в нужных моментах допускающих намёки на всякого рода излишки. Именно этот «тандем», наверное, и придал уверенности Shotgun Messiah в переходе от перенасыщенности слащавой виртуозностью к цепляюще простой сути рок-н-ролла. И пусть с «обязательной программой» в виде баллады, вышел промах, тут есть за что зацепиться – вполне стандартный для хэйровой кодлы 80-х саксофон в «I Wanna Know» запомнился даже меньше, чем ситар и этническая перкуссия, а кавер на New York Dolls вышел, что греха таить, посолиднее оригинала. В принципе, подобными урывками, альбом и убедил меня (хоть и не с первого раза, и не целиком) в своей состоятельности. Не прыгнув выше головы, «шотганы», скорее, окопались на имеющихся позициях, приобретя достоинства «на перспективу» и исправив некоторые ошибки прошлого - другой вопрос, что появились и новые, не давшие показать тот уровень, который обычно требуется от второго альбома. Впрочем, и они не настолько существенны, чтобы не закрыть на них глаза. Или, хотя бы, один.

          COVER REVEAL: Christmas Homecoming by L.A. Witt #Giveaway      Cache   Translate Page      




Release Date: December 2 2018

Add to Goodreads

Cover Design: Meredith Russell

Length: 25,000 words approx.

Blurb

August 1939. Roger Miller and Jack O’Brien have been close since childhood. By the time they realize there’s more between them than friendship, Jack is leaving their sleepy Iowa town for college. But they console themselves knowing he’ll be home for Christmas. Right?

It is Christmas before they see each other again, but that Christmas comes six years and a world war later. Aged, beaten, and shaken by combat, they’re not the boys they were back then, but their feelings for each other are stronger than ever.

Neither know the words to say everything they’ve carried since that peacetime summer kiss, though. Even as they stand in the same room, there’s a thousand miles between them.

But maybe that’s some distance the little angel in Roger’s rucksack can cross.


Christmas Angel Series

In 1750, a master woodcarver poured all his unrequited love, passion, and longing into his masterpiece—a gorgeous Christmas angel for his beloved’s tree. When the man he loved tossed the angel away without a second thought, a miracle happened. The angel was found by another who brought the woodcarver True Love.

Since then, the angel has been passed down, sold, lost and found, but its magic remains. Read the romances inspired by (and perhaps nudged along by) the Christmas Angel through the years. Whether it’s 1700’s England (Eli Easton), 1880’s New York (Kim Fielding), the turn-of-the-century (Jordan L. Hawk), World War II (L.A. Witt), Vietnam-era (N.R. Walker), the 1990’s (Anyta Sunday), or 2018 (RJ Scott), the Christmas Angel has a way of landing on the trees of lonely men who need its blessing for a very Merry Christmas and forever HEA.

Author Bio

L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn’t lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don’t tell Lauren. And definitely don’t tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut…

          Eastman concedes to Bacon in Nebraska 2nd District race      Cache   Translate Page      

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ Democrat Kara Eastman has conceded to Republican U.S. Rep. Don Bacon in the race for Nebraska's 2nd Congressional District.

Eastman said she planned to speak to Bacon Wednesday morning, hours after Bacon was declared the winner. Bacon will serve a second term in the district, which includes Omaha and most of its suburbs.

Eastman says she fought in the campaign for working people and those who don't feel that their voices are heard by people in power. Eastman pitched herself as
a progressive who supported Medicare-for-all, tuition-free college for lower- and middle-income students and greater gun control.

Bacon was first elected to the seat in 2016. The district is one of the few competitive seats in a state otherwise dominated by Republicans.


          Scribner voters approve local immigration issue      Cache   Translate Page      

Scribner, Neb. - Voters in an eastern Nebraska community have decided to bar employing or renting residences to people living in the U.S. illegally.

The proposed ordinance in Scribner was approved by more than 69 percent of voters Tuesday. The Scribner City Council voted in July to put the issue on the general election ballot.

The push for such rules came as the area prepares for an influx of workers for Costco's new chicken processing plant in neighboring Fremont.

The Costco plant will employ 1,000 workers when it opens next year and could change the face of Scribner, known to be a predominantly white farm town about 60 miles northwest of Omaha.

Representatives from the American Civil Liberties Union of Nebraska and the Immigrant Legal Center of Omaha have spoken out against the ordinance.


          House Flipping to Democratic Control, But GOP Makes Gains in Senate      Cache   Translate Page      

OMAHA (DTN) - The midterm election Tuesday was the big “blue wave” that became more of a mild blue tide as Democrats captured the House, but Republicans held their own and gained Senate seats.

Going late into the evening, projections saw Democrats gaining more than enough seats to capture control of the House of Representatives, which Democrats lost in 2010.

Republicans held on to key Senate seats and even made some pickups by knocking off Democratic incumbents in Indiana, Missouri and North Dakota and holding a late lead in Florida as well. The Arizona race remained too close to call late in the evening.

The outcome results in a divided federal government, as Democrats would control legislation in the House, including oversight power over President Donald Trump and his administration. Still, the split also likely halts the president's legislative agenda and will also create more gridlock between the House, the Senate and the White House over budgets and spending during the next two years.

In some key governor races, Republicans held Florida and Georgia, but Democrats were leading in Republican-held states of Kansas and Wisconsin late in the evening. Rep. Tim Walz, a Democrat and member of the House Agriculture Committee, won Minnesota governor's race. Democratic Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham, a member of the House Agriculture Committee, won the governorship of New Mexico. Michigan and Illinois were called as governor's seats that flipped from GOP to Democratic. Rep. Kristi Noem, a Republican and former Ag Committee member, was leading in the South Dakota governor's race.

Democrats won House seats in some typically Midwest and Plains states considered reliably Republican areas. In Johnson County Kansas suburbs, GOP Rep. Kevin Yoder, a four-term incumbent and member of the House Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee, lost to Democrat Sharice Davids, a Native American lawyer and former Obama White House fellow. Kansas flipped an open governor's seat to Democratic as well, as Laura Kelly defeated conservative Kris Kobach.

Republican Rep. Rodney Davis, a three-term incumbent and member of the House Agriculture Committee, lost in the Illinois 13th District to Betsy Dirksen Londrigan, a former teacher who focused on Davis' health-care votes.

In Iowa, Rep. Rod Blum, a Republican, lost to Democrat Abby Finkenauer in the district representing northeast Iowa. In southwest Iowa, Democrat Cindy Axne defeated three-term GOP Rep. David Young, a member of the House Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee as well.

Embattled Rep. Steve King, in Iowa's 4th congressional district, held off his toughest Democratic challenger yet as controversial comments on race and diversity nearly cost King in a normally reliably conservative area. King is a senior member of the House Ag Committee.

New York Rep. John Faso R-19th, another Ag Committee member, lost the Hudson Valley district to Antonio Delgado, a former rapper, but also a Rhodes Scholar.

House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway, R-Texas, won easily even as Democrats picked up some seats in Texas. Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., ranking member of the committee, also held his seat easily.

Reflecting some of the change in Congress, Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, chairman of the powerful House Rules Committee, lost his re-election to Democrat Colin Allred, a former pro football player and attorney in the Obama administration.

SENATE RACES

Allred's election in Texas was likely buoyed by strong suburban support for Democrat Beto O'Rourke, but O'Rourke lost his bid Tuesday to unseat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz.

Democratic chances in the Senate collapsed early when Democratic incumbent Sen. Joe Donnelly, a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, lost in Indiana to Republican businessman Mike Braun in an early call. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, Indiana's former governor, won the state by nearly 20 points two years ago.

In North Dakota, GOP Rep. Kevin Cramer will move to the Senate after defeating incumbent Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, also pegged early as one of the most vulnerable Democratic incumbents.

Drama came early on election night in key races in Florida. Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson fell behind in Florida to GOP Gov. Rick Scott, who was down by more than 56,000 votes with 99% of precincts reported.

In Tennessee, GOP Rep. Marsha Blackburn also kept the Senate seat in Republican hands.

In another GOP gain, Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill lost to Republican Josh Hawley, the state's attorney general. Hawley carried nearly every rural county in the state in getting the win.

In Montana, early on Democratic Sen. Jon Tester, a farmer, was leading his race even after being considered one of the more vulnerable incumbents.

In Mississippi, Democrat Mike Espy, a former secretary of agriculture under former President Bill Clinton, was leading late into the evening over appointed incumbent Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith by 41.6% to 40% with 75% of precincts voting. With Chris McDaniel, another Republican in the race pulling nearly 17% of the vote, Espy and Hyde-Smith will be forced into a runoff race at the end of November.

In Utah, former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney won a Senate seat to replace Sen. Orrin Hatch.

Among other Senate results, members of the Senate Agriculture Committee won, including Ranking Member Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich.; Sen. Deb Fischer, R-Neb.; Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa.; Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.; Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio; and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.

          Jimmy Butler chartered a plane so Tyus Jones could watch his brother play      Cache   Translate Page      
Welcome to the Wednesday edition of The Cooler, where it’s nice to take a break from feeling negative. Let’s get to it: *Jimmy Butler hasn’t made too many positive headlines around here in the past two months, but let’s give him a pat on the back and add a big assist to his season total for a gesture to teammate Tyus Jones. The Wolves are on a West Coast road trip and had an off day Tuesday. Tyus wanted to see his brother, Tre, make his college debut for Duke (where Tyus, of course, also starred and won a national title) in a game with national buzz in Indianapolis against Kentucky. Butler chartered a plane for both of them to jet to the game quickly; Butler ended up not being able to make it, but Jones still took the charter and got to see Tre’s debut — a seven-assist, no turnover performance in Duke’s dominant 118-84 victory. “That’s my guy,” Jones said during the game while being interviewed by ESPN in regards to Butler helping out. “Very selfless.” That said, it’s quite a long day for Jones. The flight time between Los Angeles and Indianapolis is more than 4 hours, and he did that twice on Tuesday — including a postgame flight that probably landed at 1 a.m. or later Pacific time. He’ll probably need a pretty good nap after shootaround to be fully ready for the Lakers tonight. *It’s probably a good thing that Karl-Anthony Towns didn’t hop on that flight to see his alma mater battle Duke. He would be tired and smarting even more over the 34-point loss. Instead, he just has to live with Jones gloating on Twitter (and presumably in person). *Speaking of college hoops, and in fairness to the Gophers: If their freshmen continue to play like they did in Tuesday’s 104-76 victory over Omaha in the opener, Richard Pitino won’t have to worry at all about job security.
