          Oakland Raiders 2018/19 Week 08      Cache   Translate Page      


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



Oakland Raiders - Indianapolis Colts 28:42

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

          I Voted      Cache   Translate Page      
This morning after Belle left for work, I piddled around for a bit, then went to vote.  We have voted at Philadelphia Baptist Church for the last 12 years, but when I got to the church, the doors were locked and a sign directed me to the new library at Libuse, LA.  No problem, that's on the way to the barber shop.

Went to the library and voted.  Thence to the barber, then next door to the grocer, where I picked u some corn tortillas, chorizo, eggs, baconn, ad other incidentals.  Went home and cranked up the griddle to make hurvos rancheros.  Basically, warm corn tortillas, with cheese, chorizo, fried eggs and more cheese.  It may not be heart-healthry, but there is very little carbs in that meal, and I'm watching carbs. I added bacon, because I needed the bacon grease to warm the tortillas, and why not?


I fed Zach and I lunch, then straightened up the kitchen.  One thing I'm learning about that griddle is that the longer I use it, the easier it is to clean.  Nothing sticks to it, and while it is warm, a quick rubdown with paper towels is sufficient.

          Re: Debunking Christianity: Another Weekly Reminder, You Too Could Be A Jamiat Ulema-e-Islamist...      Cache   Translate Page      

Two news items in the Boston Sunday Globe, Nov 4, that again show the harm caused by religions, may be of interest:

(1) Defense lawyer in blasphemy case flees Pakistan
ASSOCIATED PRESS ISLAMABAD — The lawyer for a Christian woman acquitted of blasphemy charges after spending eight years on death row in Pakistan has fled the country, fearing for his safety, the woman’s brother said Saturday.

(2) "In abuse scandal, spotlight squarely on bishops"

A joint review by the Globe and the Philadelphia Inquirer finds misdeeds rife in the church hierarchy but accountability largely absent despite 2002 vows.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Bishop Robert Finn wasn’t going anywhere. He never alerted authorities about photos of young girls’ genitals stashed on a pastor’s laptop. He kept parishioners in the dark, letting the priest mingle with children and families. Even after a judge found the bishop guilty of failing to report the priest’s suspected child abuse — and after 200,000 people petitioned for his ouster — he refused to go.

“I got this job from John Paul II. There’s his signature right there,” Finn had told a prospective deacon shortly after the priest’s arrest in 2011, pointing to the late pontiff’s photo. “And that’s who I answer to.” Sixteen years after the clergy sexual abuse crisis exploded in Boston, the American Catholic Church is again mired in scandal. This time, the controversy is propelled not so much by priests in the rectories as by the leadership, bishops across the country who like Finn have enabled sexual misconduct or in some cases committed it themselves.

          Experts say the Trump immigration ad pulled by NBC and Fox exposes a flaw in the way political ads are reviewed — and it could become a problem for TV networks      Cache   Translate Page

  • NBC, Fox, and Facebook all pulled an ad widely condemned as racist following public backlash.
  • While all three companies have their own advertising standards teams that evaluate ads, an initial review didn't flag anything as impermissible in the ad.
  • Some experts note a perceived difference in the way ads are reviewed for commercial products and political issues.
  • Brand-safety issues come with running political advertisements for networks and platforms.


Less than 24 hours after an advertisement that was widely condemned as racist aired during a Sunday Night Football game on NBC, the network issued a sweeping reversal, vowing to immediately remove the ad. NBC cited the ad's "insensitive" nature as the reason for its removal.

Shortly after, both Fox and Facebook, which aired the ad on their respective platforms, issued similar statements and pulled the ad.

The 30-second primetime advertisement released by President Trump's campaign attempted to draw a connection between convicted cop killer Luis Bracamontes, an undocumented Mexican immigrant who is now on death row, and the so-called migrant caravan now traveling up through Mexico toward the US border. There is no known connection, and Trump has frequently used the migrant caravan — a group of several thousand Central American migrants fleeing violence and poverty in their home countries — as a talking point to stoke fears about immigration in the US.

So how did the ad pass muster?

For one, it actually wasn't cleared by all the companies to which it was submitted. CNN, for example, rejected the ad, calling it racist.

NBC, Fox, and Facebook all have their own advertising standards teams that evaluate ads and originally accepted the Trump ad. Federal agencies, which have varying degrees of jurisdiction regulating ads, didn't flag anything as impermissible. It was a public rebuke that prompted a second review and the eventual pulling of the ad.

The original airing, outcry, and then reversal by the networks show both the difference in rules around enforcement between commercial and political ads, and the growing indication that networks and platforms must appreciate the brand-safety issues that come with political advertisements.

Standards and practices

The teams at a network or cable company that review an ad for a commercial product and for a political candidate or cause tend to be the same. But the evaluation process is different, according to people familiar with it.

"I have to believe that in a sane world when a political party or candidate buys time, the assumption is you don't have to scrutinize ads same way you have to if someone is selling something," Preston Beckman, former NBC and Fox executive, told Business Insider. "Political ads are selling policy." 

Ad agencies also note a perceived difference in the way ads are reviewed for commercial products and political issues.

"The FCC, the FTC, and the FEC leave the American people for dead when it comes to political advertising," Sarah O'Leary, lead strategist at Methods & Madness, told Business Insider. "They allow our public airwaves to be used to lie to us without any regulation." 

The FCC administers political programming rules for TV, but it doesn't evaluate messaging in ads. Both the FEC and FTC oversee campaign finance laws, including the disclosure of funds raised to influence federal elections.

The network is the real evaluation point on ad messaging, according to O'Leary, who owns an ad agency.

In her experience, the process of getting a commercial ad submitted involves reading product research to understand what facts can be included in an advertisement, multiple layers of review by lawyers, and a final review by networks or cable companies to decide if the ad is legal and fact based, or misleading.

"The people at the networks know this process inside and out," O'Leary said. "They figured they'd take a chance."

Money is part of the equation, she said, and primetime slots fetch significant ad dollars. Trump spent $2.7 million on national TV ads last week alone, according to iSpot.TV.

The Trump ad was created by Jamestown Associates, a corporate advertising firm based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with National Media as the ad-buying agency, and aired three times on NBC properties and 14 times on Fox properties over the last week before it was pulled. At the time it was removed, it had been viewed more that 21 million times, according to iSpot.TV.

The review of a political ad shouldn't be any less stringent than it is for a commercial product, O'Leary said. "They're selling the most important thing to our society they are selling ideas and principles that are going to determine our government."

Reputational risk

Since federal agencies don't thoroughly review political ad messages, that leaves the evaluation of whether an ad is appropriate to broadcasters and cable companies. And that determination has proven difficult. NBC, Fox, and Facebook all removed the ad not because it spouted factual inaccuracies, but for less quantifiable reasons. 

NBC used the term "insensitive." Facebook said the content was "sensational." In either case, the platforms seemed to designate the ad as a violation of social mores. And that may leave them exposed to a future mishap.

In the case of the most recent Trump ad that was removed, the damage seems contained.

"I don’t think there’s a reputational risk for the network and its other advertisers either way, unless an ad is so egregious that it somehow causes consumers to view other advertisers or the network negatively," Brian Wieser, senior analyst Pivotal Research, told Business Insider in an email. "Advertisers are concerned more about the content they are associated with than the brand company they keep."

YouTube is an example of a platform that faced backlash after advertisers noticed their ads running next to offensive or extremist content. It resulted in hundreds of advertisers pulling their ads from YouTube even though ads only rarely ran next to questionable content, Wieser said. 

But advertisers usually only act when there's a direct correlation between content or brand safety and an ad.

Take Facebook's role in the genocide against the Rohingya, a persecuted Muslim minority group. On Monday, Facebook admitted it didn't do enough to prevent its platform being used to incite violence and hate against the Rohingya. But advertisers aren't boycotting Facebook the way they did YouTube.

"No advertiser has concern at this time because, I think, the connection is too indirect for most consumers to appreciate even if it seems plain as day to someone studying the business closely," Wieser said.

It may take someone putting together a clear argument that resonates with large groups of people for the connection to become more problematic, he said.

But brand-safety issues for networks and platforms could become more of an issue in the future because of changing expectations of consumers.

"I think millennials and young people want to align with platforms and brands that are extensions of their values and their principles," Joseph Anthony, CEO of New York based advertising firm Hero Group, told Business Insider. 

"I think that the networks are not insulated from that, especially as you see more young people cut the cord and starting to look at more on demand platforms and there are a lot more options out there."

Victorian Poetry Book -Evangeline And Other Poems - Longfellow Poetry - Tale Of Acadie - Henry Altemus Co Philadelphia Publisher Circa 1895
I have a small late Victorian (or Art Nouveau) era poetry book published circa 1895 by Henry Altemus Co, Philadelphia.
This is titled simply "Evangeline A Tale Of Acadie And Other Poems" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
This is an emerald or dark jade green book with an embossed gilt accented cover with a misty forest scene insert.
It's wonderfully antique and mysterious just like the poems contained inside. Have you ever read "Footsteps Of Angels" or even portions of this poem? (A portion taken from Footsteps Of Angels") Just a sample of the beautiful poetry inside of this antique book ♥
~ And she sits and gazes at me
~ With those deep and tender eye-
~ Like the stars, so still and saint like
~ Looking downward from the sky.

~Uttered not, yet comprehended,
~ Is the spirit's voiceless prayer;

I will tell you that this book has some condition issues, the original owner loved it a lot! And I suspect that "Cloyd" might have rehearsed a few times in order to romance the ladies or earn a good grade in class. You will find his name inscribed inside and many pencil marks on the pages where he made notations. There are 140 pages in this small book which measures about 6 1/4" X 4 1/4" At the back of the book pages 135 - 140 have been damaged by a tear/rip and a crack is developing. The remainder of the book is tight and undamaged with the exception of those pages with pencil notations. I would like to add that there are MANY of unmarked pages in this book. Perhaps Cloyd gave up on his intended goal?

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



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2 . Giới Trẻ tích cực ra tranh cử:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

3. Vai trò của Cử Tri:

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

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

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

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

Thứ Hai, ngày 05 tháng 11 năm 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Напомним, что ранее участники закрытого бета-тестирования раскритиковали PC-версию игры. В частности, из-за ошибки пришлось заново скачивать файлы (на минуточку, 50 ГБ). Также были проблемы с настройками и отсутствием поддержки некоторых разрешений. К примеру, на мониторах с соотношением сторон 16:10 и 21:9 были чёрные полосы. Также наблюдались проблемы с FPS, поскольку скорость игры привязывалась к кадровой частоте.
Остаётся надеяться, что до релиза все эти баги устранят.

  • But college degrees are still advantageous — especially in certain areas. MagnifyMoney recently determined the top cities where a bachelor's degree is most valuable.
  • Earnings and opportunities are highest in wealthy and highly educated cities like San Jose and Washington, DC.

The cost of getting a four-year undergraduate degree is more expensive than ever. But does that mean college degrees are becoming less valuable? Not necessarily.

A college degree is still advantageous, but it can get you even further if you live in certain metropolitan areas.

MagnifyMoney recently looked at the top cities a bachelor's degree is most valuable in the United States. To determine this, they ranked income, employment, and related data from 0 to 100 for residents with a degree and those without a degree across the US's 50 largest metropolitan areas. A final score was awarded to each location to indicate the value of a bachelor's degree there. 

MagnifyMoney found that the earnings and opportunities that come from holding a bachelor's degree are highest in wealthy and highly educated cities, such as San Jose, California, and Washington, DC.

Below, see the top 25 cities where a bachelor's degree will get you the most for your job, money, and home.

Crimson Football 2018: Harvard 52, Columbia 18
football-2018-harvard-columbia

Because Saturday’s clash with Ivy League rival Columbia was the Harvard football team’s final game at Harvard Stadium this season, it was designated Senior Day, the afternoon on which the players from the class of 2019 were honored. (The final home game, against Yale, will be at Fenway Park.) Appropriately enough, one senior had a career day and several others figured heavily in the outcome. Quarterback Tom Stewart, who during his Harvard tenure didn’t get significant playing time until the middle of this season, had quite a first quarter alone, firing three long touchdown passes (including the longest in Crimson football history) and getting Harvard off and winging to a 52-18 victory. The win raised the Crimson to 4-4 overall and 2-3 in the Ivy League. The Lions dropped to 4-4, 1-4.

Harvard Football
Sign up for Harvard Magazine’s football e-mail and follow the Crimson all season long! Dick Friedman will provide the latest news, game summaries, and insights.

Acknowledging that Columbia was a “banged-up team,” Harvard coach Tim Murphy nevertheless was happy that “this was the first game in a long time that hasn’t gone down to the wire.” He lauded his seniors: “The bottom line is, we’ve had great senior production and tremendous senior leadership all year long.” Of Stewart, Murphy said, “Since the moment I put him in, at halftime of the Cornell game, he has gotten better and better and better. He has great leadership, great poise, and great toughness and has made us a better football team. The ability to get after folks with a vertical passing game that he’s particularly good at has opened up our offense and certainly opened it up again today.” 

And how. On Saturday Stewart completed 15 of 26 passes. He threw for 393 yards—easily surpassing his previous best effort, the 272 yards amassed in the 33-31 win over Holy Cross on October 12. Stewart’s five touchdown tosses put him in a four-way tie for the Crimson single-game record. (If nothing else, those long touchdown plays are a heck of a way to bypass the season-long Harvard red-zone problems.) Just as impressive as the touchdowns was the way Stewart achieved them—in the manner of the old AFL San Diego Chargers of John Hadl-to-Lance Alworth lore. The Stadium has seen some spectacular aerial shows and this one ranks with the best. “It was pretty cool, especially on Senior Day,” said Stewart. “You couldn’t script it any better. I’m on cloud nine now.”

He didn’t waste any time, taking advantage of relatively calm conditions in the first half before the wind kicked up and made throwing long more challenging. A penalty on the opening kickoff return set Harvard back to its eight-yard line. Then—zip! On first down Stewart threw caution to the winds as well as one of the sweetest passes you’ll ever see. Dropping back, he launched a Scud missile some 65 yards in the air that hit streaking junior wideout Jack Cook in stride. In a twinkling Cook, who had beaten Columbia’s Will Allen, was over the goal on that record-breaking, longest Crimson pass play, 92 yards in all. Junior Jake McIntyre booted the extra point. Twenty seconds into the game, it was Harvard 7, Columbia 0.

Later in the first period, Lions kicker Chris Alleyne made a 32-yard field goal. Harvard 7, Columbia 3. Then—bang! On the Crimson’s first play from scrimmage following the kickoff, Stewart took the snap and scanned the field. Sophomore wideout Tyler Adams was open downfield. This time, Stewart put just the correct amount of loft on the ball and dropped it into Adams’s arms—right into the pickle barrel. Adams took it the rest of the way for a 75-yard score. McIntyre kicked. Harvard 14, Columbia 3.

The Lions responded with an 83-yard drive that produced another Alleyne field goal, this one a 29-yarder. Harvard 14, Columbia 6. Then—pow! This time the Crimson quarterback had to wait until third down to produce a big play. Seeing sophomore running back Aaron Shampklin alone near the left sideline after wheeling out of the backfield, Stewart hit him with a toss. Shampklin blazed the remainder of the 74 yards. McIntyre booted. Harvard 21, Columbia 6. Fewer than 12 minutes had been played. 

 

Up until now the scoreboard had been blinking like a pinball machine, but the game soon settled down and the Lions crept back. In the middle of the second quarter, Columbia’s Mike Roussos made a nifty return of a punt by Harvard freshman Jon Sot, taking the ball to the Crimson 35. Four plays later the Lions were in the end zone on a two-yard run by Kyle Castner. But on the extra-point try the snap was bungled. Harvard 21, Columbia 12. 

Would Stewart’s epic first quarter go to waste? As the half approached, another senior, defensive back Wesley Ogsbury, did his best to blunt any Lion momentum, making two interceptions. On the second pick, Ogsbury nearly took it to the house, returning the ball 42 yards to the Columbia 16. (On Monday, Obsbury was named the Ivy League’s defensive player of the week, while Stewart was named the co-offensive player of the week, with Yale freshman quarterback Griffin O’Connor.) 

Thirty-nine seconds remained till halftime. On first down, Stewart danced to his left and whipped the ball into the back of the end zone. Senior wideout Henry Taylor leaped, snagged it, and somehow kept his feet inbounds when he came down. Touchdown! McIntyre kicked. Harvard 28, Columbia 12.

As the third quarter began, the senior connection of Stewart to Taylor again provided a spark, this time with a pair of completions that helped bring the ball to the Lion six-yard-line. On first and goal, Shampklin glided up the middle and into the end zone. McIntyre converted. Harvard 35, Columbia 12. 

This touchdown took some of the pressure off, but more than 25 minutes of play remained. The rest of the third quarter produced a scoreless standstill. (Leading Harvard with eight tackles on the day was defensive back and captain Zach Miller. Yes, a senior.) On the first play of the fourth quarter, the snap sailed over the head of Columbia punter Drew Schmid and out of the end zone for a safety and two-more Crimson points. Harvard 37, Columbia 12. The Lions now would need four scores to gain the lead. They got one of them on a 20-yard pass from Ty Lenhart to Kaleb Pitts, but Lenhart failed on a two-point conversion run. Harvard 37, Columbia 18.

  

Stewart wasn’t through. Instead of producing a quick strike, he led the Crimson on a meticulous, 10-play, 62-yard drive that yielded another senior-connection touchdown pass to Taylor, a 10-yarder. McIntyre kicked the extra point. Harvard 44, Columbia 18. The points were welcome, but so was taking five minutes off the clock. McIntyre then blasted the ensuing kickoff through the uprights.  

The punctuation was provided by yet another senior, running back Charlie Booker III. Booker was All-Ivy in 2017 but injuries have limited his 2018 playing time. After the Crimson defense forced the Lions to surrender the ball at the Columbia 34, sophomore quarterback Jake Smith (doing mop-up duty for Stewart) handed to Booker, who barreled up the middle and accelerated into the end zone. McIntyre’s point after was blocked but tight end Cecil Williams picked up the ball and carried it into the end zone for two points. Harvard 52, Columbia 17. 

Williams is—you guessed it—a senior.

 

Tidbits: Harvard has not lost to Columbia at Harvard Stadium since September 16, 1995, when the Lions won 28-24….Columbia’s punter, sophomore Drew Schmid, is the brother of Zach Schmid ’18, who was Harvard’s punter from 2015 through ’17….Saturday’s victory marked the first time in two seasons that Harvard scored more than 50 points. The most recent previous occurrence came on September 16, 2016, when the Crimson beat Rhode Island 51-21.

 

 

The Real Game, 2018—The Outcome: In the Ivy League’s battle of unbeatens, Princeton outlasted Dartmouth 14-9. In our prediction we got the winner right, but we way overestimated the point total (Princeton 34, Dartmouth 20). So we will refrain from predicting the outcome of Tuesday’s midterm elections. The Tigers’ two remaining games are at Yale and back home against Penn, while the Big Green has it easier, playing at Cornell and in Hanover against Brown. 

   

Weekly Roundup

Princeton 14, Dartmouth 9
Penn 20, Cornell 7
Yale 46, Brown 16

 

Coming up: Next Saturday, for its final road game of the season, Harvard travels to Philadelphia’s Franklin Field to face Penn. Kickoff: 1 p.m. The game will be streamed on ESPN+ and broadcast on the radio on WRCA 1330 AM, 106.1 FM and 94.5 FM-HD2, and on WHRB FM 95.3. The Quakers are 6-2 overall and 3-2 in the Ivy League. The Crimson leads in the overall series 48-38-2, but Penn has won the last three, including a 23-6 victory last year at Harvard Stadium.

          Aging in place -- big talk, but do people really believe it?      Cache   Translate Page      

Who doesn’t want to live in their 'forever' home? After all, AARP has surveyed us for 2018 – staying there is apparently what 76% want, though only 59% expect that they will.  But responders also know that you can’t always get what you want. Concerns included the need for transportation regardless of physical status, ability to stay active in the community, and availability of hospitals nearby (though that 911 call can fail to find us).  And no, ride-sharing and self-driving cars are not viewed as panaceas.  We know many of the reasons older adults will leave their homes – families and the draw of grandchildren pull them nearer; a spouse dies; the home itself is too costly to keep.  

Why doesn’t senior living look like a more viable option?  The senior living industry has been in various stages of denial for years – in good times, overbuilding and in bad times, failing to effectively expand services to those aging in their communities.  Meanwhile, the average $3750/month costs of senior living communities are daunting to a population that may not have saved enough to support that choice. Seniors are aware of well-publicized life expectancy at 65 and 75. Consider a nationwide average $3750 cost (good luck finding an actual cost), that would amount to $675K over 15 years – for one person.

Will we stay -- or will we go?   Assume baby boomers put our proverbial feet down – we just will not leave -- and nothing can make us. What should we have in (or do to) our homes that facilitates ‘aging in place?’ Can a home that is far away from family members really be modified and then outfitted to help us stay there and stay connected? Should it be? The AARP survey reveals hope but uncertainty – and a strong possibility of changing locations. Ironically, that new location may not be moving in with the kids. The growth in 55+ housing is steady – is that where baby boomers will want to go if they can?

Fixing to stay – what enables aging in place? Technology plays a useful but tangential role. Sensors are helpful, fall detection is helpful, video cameras and online connectivity – they are all helpful and may reduce social isolation and loneliness. But as the holidays approach, tickets are bought and everyone seemingly travels. Adult children look at the homes of their parents and think more about their own homes -- and wonder.  Are these homes (ours, theirs) near public transportation, so limited in the suburbs?  Are the homes single-story (desirable, possible), available in 76% of US housing units -- but in few suburban developments?  How about night-time outdoor safety of walkways covered with ice or slippery with rain? What about walking a dog or tripping over the dog inside the house

«Не нужно быть модным, спортивным, богатым или умным, чтобы оценить пружину Слинки. Это игрушка для обычных людей»— Журнал «Philadelphia Inquirer Magazine», 1993
По мнению топ-менеджеров игровой индустрии, только одна из тысячи игрушек может похвастаться популярностью, исчисляемой десятилетиями. Большинство живут и умирают, чтобы кануть в лету после нескольких лет успеха.
Слинки стала исключением: за 70 лет на рынке было продано более 300 000 000 ее экземпляров. «Бессмертность» игрушки кажется необъяснимой — ведь по сути, это всего лишь обычная металлическая пружинка, которая не делает ничего экстраординарного. Напротив, она предельно проста, и именно эта простота сделала ее культовой.

Ричард Томпсон Джеймс (Richard Thompson James), родившийся 1 января 1914 года в штате Делавер, был очень любознательным ребенком. Когда Соединенные Штаты вступили в фазу экономической депрессии в начале 1920-х годов, за неимением средств, он вынужден был развлекать себя сам — творческие способности и богатая фантазия мальчика с легкостью превращали пружины и куски стекла в увлекательные игрушки

Как и большинство молодых людей, Джеймс начал интересоваться тем, как создаются вещи. Окончив Пенсильванский университет по машиностроительной специальности в конце 1930-х годов, он поступил на работу в должности военно-морского инженера. После того, как Соединенные Штаты были вовлечены во Вторую Мировую Войну, Джеймс стал офисным сотрудником на верфи «Уильям Крамп и сыновья» в Филадельфии, где ему было поручено строительство оборудования для подводных лодок и броненосцев.
Именно здесь, душным днем 1943 года, он случайно изобрел одну из самых популярных игрушек XX века.
В разгар разработки системы, которая должна была «поддерживать и стабилизировать чувствительные приборы на борту кораблей в бурном море», Джеймс неуклюже развернулся и уронил банку запчастей с верхней полки. Наклонившись, чтобы подобрать упавшее, он изумленно наблюдал, как раскачивалась одинокая пружина, неуверенно «шагая» через стол, вниз по стопкам книг и на пол. Весь остаток дня любопытству Джеймса не было предела — он вернулся домой поздно вечером, все еще охваченный радостным волнением. «Думаю, что если бы мне удалось получить сталь нужного качества и упругости», — сказал он жене, — «я смог бы заставить ее ходить!»

До конца года он возился с различными типами проволоки и коэффициентами упругости в свободное от работы время. В итоге, после нахождения правильной комбинации — которой обладала высокоуглеродистая стальная проволока 0.0575 дюйма в диаметре — на свет родилась первая «шагающая пружинка», способная беспрепятственно спускаться по лестнице.
Впрочем, «мистические» способности пружины опирались на простой закон физики, или закон Гука, гласящий, что возвращающая сила прямо пропорциональна смещению. Когда пружина начинает свое путешествие вниз, потенциальная энергия преобразуется в кинетическую, и игрушка делает прыжок через себя до достижения ровной поверхности.
Имя для нее он попросил придумать свою жену Бетти, которая была как это очень часто бывает скептически настроена по отношению к идее мужа. Прошло несколько недель прежде, чем она нашла в словаре нужное слово — slinky, не только являвшееся синонимом «плавный», «изящный», но и показавшееся ей удачной вербализацией звука, производимого игрушкой.

Инженер и его жена с нетерпением ждали первой продажи — но дни складывались в недели, а Слинки стояли нетронутыми. У скучных пружин, примостившихся рядом с глазастыми плюшевыми медведями и наборами блестящих электропоездов, не было никаких шансов привлечь внимание покупателей.
Джеймс понял, что пора взять дело в свои руки. «Давай встретимся в Гимбелс через несколько часов», — сказал он жене и решительно вышел из дома. Оказавшись в универмаге, он приступил к созданию своей собственной выставки, после чего не ушел, а остался сидеть с детьми и показывать им интерактивные шоу с участием Слинки. Приехавшая через полтора часа Бетти обнаружила, что Джеймс продал все 400 экземпляров «шагающей пружинки», по $1 за каждую, а вниз по кварталу выстроилась очередь из тех, кому не досталась новая игрушка. В общей сложности, к Рождеству было продано 20 000 Слинки.
Благодаря своим достижениям, Джеймс продал более 100 000 000 Слинки за первые 2 года. Удерживая цену на игрушку на уровне $1, он получил в современном эквиваленте $1 000 000 000 выручки.

Развивайте в детях и внуках любознательность и настойчивость в достижении поставленных целей

          Snap Kitchen Rolls Out Compostable Packaging      Cache   Translate Page      

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

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

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

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

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

The organization’s movement toward utilizing an eco-friendly packaging creates a global impact and provides benefits for its consumers who are conscious about their carbon footprint. With the energy that it previously took to create one petroleum plastic tray, five new compostable trays can be produced, the company noted. Additionally, the change to compostable trays will reduce Snap Kitchen’s carbon emissions from packaging manufacturing by 66 percent.

According to the company, the packaging will be microwave and oven safe and each dish will be equipped with proper heating instructions on their packaging label. The one-time use containers can be easily discarded in a compost bin or included in a conventional garbage canister, as they contribute zero toxicity to the environment.

Election Day is finally here. I'll be so glad to be done with campaign ads ruining watching Jeopardy for me. I'll be glad to stop getting tweets from the RNC begging me for money and the unsolicited phone calls urging us to go out and vote. I'll be glad to have real results rather than guesses based on polling that is based on guesses as to who will turn out to vote. I'll be glad to stop reading all the tea-leaf reading on who turned out for early voting when we don't know how these people are voting, particularly the independents. The news tonight might be good or bad for Republicans, but most likely it will be mixed. But I suspect that there may be some disappointing results in some of these races. I hate the idea that certain really rather repellent candidates such as Keith Ellison, Bob Menendez, or Kyrsten Sinema might win. I would hate to see Mia Love be defeated. I can't stand the way that Andrew Gillum has cried racism any time he's been criticized. And I can't stand the phoniness of Beto O'Rourke. So there are a lot of depressing results that I'm anticipating.

And to pile disappointments upon disappointments, all the experts are predicting that Kentucky will defeat Duke tonight. That's the result I'm most interested in. I don't know if I'm ready for such a depressing evening.


This is extremely creepy.
My dentist, a registered Republican, did not vote in the last midterm elections, in 2014.

But the owner of my local bookstore, a registered Democrat, did vote then. So did my accountant, who is not registered with either party.

I know these details not because the dentist, the bookseller and the accountant volunteered to share their voting histories with me. I found out from VoteWithMe and OutVote, two new political apps that are trying to use peer pressure to get people to vote Tuesday.

The apps are to elections what Zillow is to real estate — services that pull public information from government records, repackage it for consumer viewing and make it available at the touch of a smartphone button. But instead of giving you a peek at house prices, VoteWithMe and OutVote let you snoop on which of your friends voted in past elections and their party affiliations — and then prod them to go to the polls by sending them scripted messages like “You gonna vote?”
Just because something is possible to do technologically doesn't mean it's a good idea. This is a bit reminiscent of China's social credit system in which people are ranked by their behavior, what they purchase, whom their friends are. People are already getting blocked from buying plane ticket for being bad passengers.
The eventual system will punish bad passengers specifically. Potential misdeeds include trying to ride with no ticket, loitering in front of boarding gates, or smoking in no-smoking areas.
The difference is that, in China, it is the government exacting penalties against people for undesired behavior. These apps are allowing people to be the ones to embarrass their neighbors and acquaintances. If anyone tried this with me, I would be so very irritated. It's bad enough that the parties know who has and hasn't voted in recent elections and target us accordingly. I dread seeing a time when other people start taking it upon themselves to butt into other people's political privacy.

The app did expose some liberal hypocrisy.
But what’s really amusing is that the NYT accidentally outed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as a non-voter in the 2014 and 2016 elections:
They also reported that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat running for the House, did not vote in the last midterm elections in 2014. Nor did Alyssa Milano, an actress and activist who recently posted a video on Twitter urging her followers to vote.
So Dem Governor Andrew Cuomo disenfranchise her?

A spokesman for Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said that she was purged from the New York voter rolls in 2016 and that he was looking into 2014....

Oh, and the Dem-leaning apps were caught collecting info that they didn’t need to actually accomplish the purpose of the app:
By inspecting data that the apps harvested from our contacts, The Times also found that they took more personal data than required to match voters — such as the workplace and email address of Senator Ted Cruz, the Texas Republican.
After queries from The Times, VoteWithMe and OutVote each said they had eliminated some types of data that their apps were harvesting. In subsequent testing last week, The Times found that VoteWithMe no longer collected email addresses, street names and numbers, or company names. But OutVote continued to do so. Mr. Makiya of OutVote said the app had stopped collecting social profile data but needed the email addresses to match voter files.
Busted.


And Democrats are already using the information to threaten remind people about voting.
Democratic candidate Scott Wallace, who is running against incumbent Republican representative Brian Fitzpatrick in Pennsylvania's toss-up 1st Congressional District, is distributing door hangers in the area that oddly inform voters that "who you vote for is private, but whether or not you vote is public record" and adding that the campaign "can't wait to see that you voted on November 6!"

The door hangers used by the Wallace campaign were posted to Twitter by Albert Eisenberg, a digital and communications professional in the Philadelphia region. Eisenberg is working with the American Unity PAC, a pro-LGBT conservative committee.


Yes, yes it is creepy.

Tom Rogan explains why socialists will have trouble achieving their dreams. It's too easy for corporations to move out of countries that adopt such policies.
As the growth of technological innovation and the tech sector per se makes it easier for businesses to maintain strong market access regardless of their tax domicile, businesses will have ever increasing means of avoiding high tax domiciles. This is especially problematic for left-wing movements in Western democracies, where government policies are ultimately accountable to electorates in elections. After all, politicians like Corbyn and Bernie Sanders budget for their massive spending by positing on the foundation of imposing much higher corporation taxes. But if they can’t tax businesses without pushing those businesses abroad, they’ll be unable to collect the revenue they need to pay for their other spending priorities, and they’ll invite increasing unemployment. That's a recipe for losing elections.
It's as if people respond to incentives and disincentives. Who could have predicted that?


All the Democrats who have spent the past years cozying up to Louis Farrakhan should have to answer questions about this most recent outrage.
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan led chants of “death to America” on Sunday and derided American conceptions of democracy and freedom during a visit to Iran, planned as a show of support for the regime ahead of the re-implementation of U.S. sanctions.

Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who has been embraced by prominent liberal activists and lawmakers, railed against American policymakers for harassing the Iranian people and siding with Saudi Arabia in its proxy war with Iran in Yemen.

“I understand how the enemies have plotted against the Iranian people and I would like to stay alongside you to stop their plots,” he said during a meeting with the secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council, Mohsen Rezaei, according to state-owned news agency Mehr. “Satan seeks to divide Muslims and wants them to kill each other, while God tells us in the Quran to be united.”

During a subsequent speaking appearance at the University of Tehran law school, Farrakhan mocked America’s founding ideals while praising the Islamic conception of women’s rights and Iran’s strict enforcement of female modesty.

“America has never been a democracy and has always leaned towards the wealthy and powerful class,” he said before leading the law students in chanting “Death to Israel” and “Death to America.”

Farrakhan, who recently referred to Jews as “termites,” has been lauded by Women’s March leader Tamika Mallory as the “GOAT” or Greatest of All Time. Linda Sarsour, Mallory’s fellow Women’s March leader, has also praised Farrakhan on multiple occasions and has refused to condemn his anti-Semitism.

Asked about his relationship with Farrakhan, Representative Danny Davis (D., Ill.) said “I don’t regard Louis Farrakhan as an aberration or anything, I regard him as an outstanding human being who commands a following of individuals who are learned and articulate and he plays a big role in the lives of thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands of people.”

Representative Keith Ellison(D., Minn.), who is now running to be Minnesota’s attorney general, has met privately with Farrakhan on multiple occasions. Then-senator Barack Obama’s 2005 meeting with Farrakhan was captured in a recently released photograph.


Karol Markowicz advises people not to join the Women's March unless you're comfortable with anti-Semitism.
Linda Sarsour is one of the leaders. Articles soon sprang up about terrible comments she made: She supported the radical Muslim Brotherhood. She praised Sharia law, which, among other things, includes second-class status for women. She was open about her fandom of Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam.

In 2012, she tweeted: “When we write the history of Islam in America, the Nation of #Islam is an integral part of that history.”

Perhaps she didn’t know Farrakhan said “Hitler was a very great man” in a 1984 speech or that in 1985 he warned Jews: “And don’t you forget, when it’s God who puts you in the ovens, it’s forever!”

Maybe she was ignorant of his 1996 remark about “fake Jews,” that is, Jews who disapprove of his anti-Semitic comments: “You are the synagogue of Satan, and you have wrapped your tentacles around the US government, and you are deceiving and sending this nation to hell.”

People change, goes the argument, and comments Sarsour made were several years ago, before she became a high-profile political figure on the left. Perhaps she’s more responsible now.

But in September, Sarsour said American Muslims shouldn’t “humanize” Israelis. There was no overwhelming response from the left to remind her that Israelis are actually human. American Jews who ignore this hatred are fooling themselves. Anti-Semitism is specifically about dehumanizing Jews until their murder makes sense.

In July, she tweeted birthday wishes at a fugitive cop-killer. This is not a woman who has done a lot of introspection and changed her views. Why stand with her?

Then there’s Women’s March co-president Tamika Mallory. In a February 2018 speech, Farrakhan said, “Jews were responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting out, turning men into women and women into men. White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God’s grace, has pulled the cover off of that Satanic Jew, and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through.”

Mallory attended the speech. She once posted a picture of herself embraced by Farrakhan, referring to him as “the GOAT” (Greatest Of All Time). So when she pointedly refused to condemn Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic and anti-LGBT comments after being asked, it was no surprise....

Why march with such women? And note: While “Black women, Native women, poor women, immigrant women, disabled women, Muslim women, lesbian queer and trans women” are all specifically mentioned in the “Unity Principles,” Jewish women are not. Meanwhile, anti-Semitic attacks account for more than half of all hate crimes in the US. Maybe it’s not a coincidence.

Make no mistake: These aren’t comments made years ago; they’re happening now. Just last May, Mallory praised the “bravery” of Hamas terrorists. Two weeks ago, Farrakhan compared Jews to termites.

Some marchers think they can find common ground with these women. That’s misguided. A conservative marching alongside white nationalist Richard Spencer, because they both happen to agree on, say, economic issues, would rightly be pilloried. This should be no different.
This is so true. Don't provide support for such ugliness.


Jay Cost examines how Congressional elections have come to be about the president whose name is not on the ballot. It's all rather strange given that the Founders thought the Legislative Branch should be the preeminent branch.
What we have then is a series of institutional devices that all cut in the same direction: Congress is free from presidential interference, but the president is not free from congressional interference. So why is it that the president is so influential in congressional elections? Put simply, that is what the people want.

Just as the president is forbidden from interfering with Congress, so also is the Congress prohibited from interfering with public opinion. That is the essence of the First Amendment, which guarantees the rights of conscience, speech, press, assembly, and petition, all building blocks of public opinion. Congress is the most powerful branch of the government, and the people are guaranteed sovereignty over Congress.

Starting with the presidency of Andrew Jackson, the president came to be the dominant figure in American public life. This tendency waxed and waned over the 19th century, but the rise of mass communications and the growth of federal power during the 20th century created the mammoth executive office that now exists. The president draws the attention of the people toward him and away from Congress, the courts, and the states. So even though Congress remains at the center of constitutional government, it is the president who dominates public opinion.

It is in this way that the president can influence Congress so enormously. He does not do so directly, for the constitutional safeguards are basically insurmountable. Rather, he influences Congress through the people, who do have direct control over Congress.

Is this a good way to organize public affairs? I think not. The plain fact is that the president does not have the constitutional power that the people assume that he does. The Framers were far too Whiggish to give the president any kind of authority approaching that of a king. Real change in public policy comes inevitably through Congress, and Congress alone. If we want our government to function better, we should do the work of evaluating members of Congress more carefully, rather than using congressional elections as a proxy vote on our opinion of the president.


Ed Morrissey is also pondering the problem that a narrow Democratic victory in the House would present Democrats.
Ironically, the most paralyzing outcome for progressives may be a narrow Democratic majority in the House, of ten seats or fewer, with Pelosi in charge. They will have won that majority in part by recruiting and appealing to moderates in Trump country, which will make it more difficult to get the progressive agenda passed in the House — and it will go nowhere in a Republican-controlled Senate. Two years of failure, added to fanatical anti-Trump recriminations, will undermine their message in the next cycle, making it tougher to hold that majority especially if Democrats really turn on the progressive jets in the next presidential cycle. It won’t be fun for Republicans, mind you, but it might be a longer-term headache for Democrats to just barely eke out a win in the House.
Of course, the same would be true if the Republicans narrowly keep the House.

          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.

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


(iStock) (gradyreese/iStock)

Does it matter who operates America’s public schools?

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

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

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

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

By Carol Burris and Diane Ravitch

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

From the first recommendation of the report:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

En los Bullets se hizo rápidamente con el puesto de titular, acabando el año como cuarto mejor anotador del equipo, con 13,1 puntos por noche, y el segundo mejor reboteador tras el propio Malone, con 7,2 capturas.5​ Jugo durante dos temporadas más en la capital, pero antes del inicio de la temporada 1989-90 fue incluido en el draft de expansión por la incorporación de nuevos equipos a la liga, siendo elegido por Orlando Magic.4​ Allí se convirtió en el líder del equipo, acabando la primera temporada del mismo en la liga como máximo anotador, con 19,4 puntos por encuentro, a los que añadió 7,6 rebotes.


Permaneció 3 años más con los Magic, protagonizando una curiosa anécdota en la que iba a ser su última temporada en la NBA. Los Magic se habían hecho en el draft con los servicios de Shaquille O'Neal, que en su etapa en la Universidad de Louisiana State llevaba el número 33 a la espalda, el mismo que lucía en ese momento Catledge, y que éste se negó a cederle.7​ Catledge apenas jugó 21 partidos ese año, siendo despedido al finalizar el mismo, pero Shaquille se quedó con el número 32.

Al año siguiente comenzaría la temporada con los Oklahoma City Cavalry de la Continental Basketball Association, de donde pasó a los Mississippi Coast Gamblers de la USBL, antes de hacer las maletas y cruzar el Atlántico para jugar con el Pau Orthez Elan Bearnais de la Liga Francesa, donde en su única temproada promedió 20 puntos y 6 rebotes por partido.8​ De ahí pasó al Aris Salónica de la Liga Griega, antes de regresar a Estados Unidos para jugar dos temporadas con los Shreveport Crawdads de la CBA. En 1997 jugó su última temporada como profesional con los Atenas de Córdoba de la Liga Argentina, con los que logró esa temporada el título de la Liga Sudamericana de Clubes.

En sus 8 años en la NBA promedió 12,7 puntos y 6,4 rebotes por partido.

          Segunda temporada de "Stan Against Evil" estreia no AMC       Cache   Translate Page      
Imagem/Divulgação AMC
O AMC estreia com exclusividade a segunda temporada da série de comédia de terror “Stan Against Evil” em 27 de novembro, às 21h30. Serão exibidos dois episódios seguidos a cada terça-feira.  

Criada por Dana Gould (“The Simpsons”, “Parks and Recreation”) e estrelada por John C. McGinley (“Scrubs”) e Janet Varney (“You’re The Worst”), a produção de oito capítulos de meia hora cada segue o permanentemente descontente ex-xerife Stan Miller (McGinley), que se une relutantemente a Evie Barret (Janet Varney), sua jovem substituta, para lutar contra forças sobrenaturais em sua pitoresca cidade da Nova Inglaterra.

A primeira temporada de “Stan Against Evil” terminou com a xerife Evie Barret perdida no ano de 1692, acusada de ser uma bruxa e prestes a ser queimada na fogueira. A segunda temporada leva os espectadores para a sitiada cidade de Willard’s Mill, onde Stan levanta, relutantemente, de seu sofá para resolver o mistério do desaparecimento de Evie em sua viagem no tempo. Contra tudo e contra todos, a improvável dupla continua a lutar contra os demônios descontrolados que tentam tomar a sua cidade, que foi construída no local de uma enorme queima de bruxas no século XVII.

Entre os artistas convidados que chegam para a segunda temporada estão Jeffrey Combs (“Gotham”, A Casa da Colina), como o Impish Man, um novato que adora uma boa aposta; Steven Ogg (“The Walking Dead”, “Westworld”), como um caubói do passado que adquire um interesse especial por Evie; Denise Boutte (Meet The Browns), como Lara Bouchard, uma moradora local que talvez saiba mais a respeito das criaturas demoníacas da cidade do que deixa transparecer; David Koechner (O Âncora: A Lenda de Ron Burgundy, “The Goldbergs”), no papel de Kenny, o ex-marido incorrigível de Evie; e Patty McCormack (“Heart of Dixie”), como Priscilla, a culta proprietária de uma loja de antiguidades. Deborah Baker Jr. (“The Great Indoors”) e Nate Mooney (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) também voltam a trabalhar nesta temporada respectivamente como Denise Miller, a distraída e caridosa filha de Stan, e o Xerife Assistente Leon Drinkwater, o braço direito de Evie.

Stan Against Evil” é criado, escrito e tem produção executiva de Dana Gould (“The Simpsons”, “Parks and Recreation”), com Tom Lassally (“Silicon Valley”) também atuando como produtor executivo. A Radical Media (What Happened, Miss Simone?, “MARS”) produz a série com produção executiva de Frank Scherma e Justin Wilkes. Além de seu papel principal como Stan, John C. McGinley também atua como produtor.

MT-Sen: Here’s one red state Senate race where things are going the Democrats’ way: incumbent Jon Tester is outpacing Republican challenger Matt Rosendale 52-45 with 26 percent reporting. And in MT-AL, reporter-beater Greg Gianforte leads Democratic challenger Kathleen Williams only 49-48.

NJ-02: Add one more flip to the Dems’ tally, though this was a race that had been chalked up in their column for months. Democratic state Sen. Jeff Van Drew has been elected, per AP, to take the Jersey Shore seat of retiring Republican Frank Lo Biondo.

MN-02: And here’s yet one more Democratic pickup! Democratic challenger Angie Craig has knocked off the odious incumbent Jason Lewis in the Twin Cities suburbs, according to the AP.

Two more holds in somewhat competitive races for Team Red, though. Incumbent Mike Bost holds on in downstate Illinois’s IL-12, and incumbent Brian Fitzpatrick is the last Republican left standing in Philadelphia’s suburbs, holding PA-01.

New Hampshire: The Granite State has continued with its storied tradition of purging stage legislators at the drop of a hat. The Democrats has flipped both the gigantic New Hampshire House (which has 400 members) and the very small New Hampshire Senate. Unfortunately, Republican Gov. Chris Sununu was narrowly re-elected, so the Dems don’t hold the trifecta yet.

Wednesday, Nov 7, 2018 · 5:14:37 AM +00:00 · David Jarman

SC-01: No call here, nor should there be, with 83 percent reporting, but this is one of the more long-shot-ish seats that may well be on its way to becoming another Democratic pickup. Joe Cunningham leads Katie Arrington (who beat Republican incumbent Mark Sanford in the primary) 51-49.

Wednesday, Nov 7, 2018 · 5:20:03 AM +00:00 · David Jarman

NY-23: This seat in upstate New York was a late move onto the big board, but Republican incumbent Tom Reed has held on here, per the AP.

Wednesday, Nov 7, 2018 · 5:25:43 AM +00:00 · David Jarman

ME-Gov: While we don’t have a call yet in the Governor’s race, Democratic candidate Janet Mills is leading by a 51-43 margin, and now Republican Shawn Moody is conceding the race. This is big news because not only does a Democrat replace outgoing assbutt Paul Le Page, but also because the Democrats have just taken control of the Maine state Senate. They already control the Maine House, so that gives legislative Democrats one more trifecta.

          Experts say the Trump immigration ad pulled by NBC and Fox exposes a flaw in the way political ads are reviewed — and it could become a problem for TV networks      Cache   Translate Page      

In this Oct. 6, 2018, file photo, President Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally in Topeka, Kan. There’s a lot of talk in Washington these days about the formal politeness known as “civility” is possible _ or even desirable _ among the nation’s political combatants these days. It’s not likely to get better, at least before the Nov. 6 midterm elections in which Republicans are defending their House and Senate majorities.

  • NBC, Fox, and Facebook all pulled an ad widely condemned as racist following public backlash.
  • While all three companies have their own advertising standards teams that evaluate ads, an initial review didn't flag anything as impermissible in the ad.
  • Some experts note a perceived difference in the way ads are reviewed for commercial products and political issues.
  • Brand-safety issues come with running political advertisements for networks and platforms.


Less than 24 hours after an advertisement that was widely condemned as racist aired during a Sunday Night Football game on NBC, the network issued a sweeping reversal, vowing to immediately remove the ad. NBC cited the ad's "insensitive" nature as the reason for its removal.

Shortly after, both Fox and Facebook, which aired the ad on their respective platforms, issued similar statements and pulled the ad.

The 30-second primetime advertisement released by President Trump's campaign attempted to draw a connection between convicted cop killer Luis Bracamontes, an undocumented Mexican immigrant who is now on death row, and the so-called migrant caravan now traveling up through Mexico toward the US border. There is no known connection, and Trump has frequently used the migrant caravan — a group of several thousand Central American migrants fleeing violence and poverty in their home countries — as a talking point to stoke fears about immigration in the US.

So how did the ad pass muster?

For one, it actually wasn't cleared by all the companies to which it was submitted. CNN, for example, rejected the ad, calling it racist.

NBC, Fox, and Facebook all have their own advertising standards teams that evaluate ads and originally accepted the Trump ad. Federal agencies, which have varying degrees of jurisdiction regulating ads, didn't flag anything as impermissible. It was a public rebuke that prompted a second review and the eventual pulling of the ad.

The original airing, outcry, and then reversal by the networks show both the difference in rules around enforcement between commercial and political ads, and the growing indication that networks and platforms must appreciate the brand-safety issues that come with political advertisements.

Standards and practices

The teams at a network or cable company that review an ad for a commercial product and for a political candidate or cause tend to be the same. But the evaluation process is different, according to people familiar with it.

"I have to believe that in a sane world when a political party or candidate buys time, the assumption is you don't have to scrutinize ads same way you have to if someone is selling something," Preston Beckman, former NBC and Fox executive, told Business Insider. "Political ads are selling policy." 

Ad agencies also note a perceived difference in the way ads are reviewed for commercial products and political issues.

"The FCC, the FTC, and the FEC leave the American people for dead when it comes to political advertising," Sarah O'Leary, lead strategist at Methods & Madness, told Business Insider. "They allow our public airwaves to be used to lie to us without any regulation." 

The FCC administers political programming rules for TV, but it doesn't evaluate messaging in ads. Both the FEC and FTC oversee campaign finance laws, including the disclosure of funds raised to influence federal elections.

The network is the real evaluation point on ad messaging, according to O'Leary, who owns an ad agency.

In her experience, the process of getting a commercial ad submitted involves reading product research to understand what facts can be included in an advertisement, multiple layers of review by lawyers, and a final review by networks or cable companies to decide if the ad is legal and fact based, or misleading.

"The people at the networks know this process inside and out," O'Leary said. "They figured they'd take a chance."

Money is part of the equation, she said, and primetime slots fetch significant ad dollars. Trump spent $2.7 million on national TV ads last week alone, according to iSpot.TV.

The Trump ad was created by Jamestown Associates, a corporate advertising firm based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with National Media as the ad-buying agency, and aired three times on NBC properties and 14 times on Fox properties over the last week before it was pulled. At the time it was removed, it had been viewed more that 21 million times, according to iSpot.TV.

The review of a political ad shouldn't be any less stringent than it is for a commercial product, O'Leary said. "They're selling the most important thing to our society they are selling ideas and principles that are going to determine our government."

Reputational risk

Since federal agencies don't thoroughly review political ad messages, that leaves the evaluation of whether an ad is appropriate to broadcasters and cable companies. And that determination has proven difficult. NBC, Fox, and Facebook all removed the ad not because it spouted factual inaccuracies, but for less quantifiable reasons. 

NBC used the term "insensitive." Facebook said the content was "sensational." In either case, the platforms seemed to designate the ad as a violation of social mores. And that may leave them exposed to a future mishap.

In the case of the most recent Trump ad that was removed, the damage seems contained.

"I don’t think there’s a reputational risk for the network and its other advertisers either way, unless an ad is so egregious that it somehow causes consumers to view other advertisers or the network negatively," Brian Wieser, senior analyst Pivotal Research, told Business Insider in an email. "Advertisers are concerned more about the content they are associated with than the brand company they keep."

YouTube is an example of a platform that faced backlash after advertisers noticed their ads running next to offensive or extremist content. It resulted in hundreds of advertisers pulling their ads from YouTube even though ads only rarely ran next to questionable content, Wieser said. 

But advertisers usually only act when there's a direct correlation between content or brand safety and an ad.

Take Facebook's role in the genocide against the Rohingya, a persecuted Muslim minority group. On Monday, Facebook admitted it didn't do enough to prevent its platform being used to incite violence and hate against the Rohingya. But advertisers aren't boycotting Facebook the way they did YouTube.

"No advertiser has concern at this time because, I think, the connection is too indirect for most consumers to appreciate even if it seems plain as day to someone studying the business closely," Wieser said.

It may take someone putting together a clear argument that resonates with large groups of people for the connection to become more problematic, he said.

But brand-safety issues for networks and platforms could become more of an issue in the future because of changing expectations of consumers.

"I think millennials and young people want to align with platforms and brands that are extensions of their values and their principles," Joseph Anthony, CEO of New York based advertising firm Hero Group, told Business Insider. 

"I think that the networks are not insulated from that, especially as you see more young people cut the cord and starting to look at more on demand platforms and there are a lot more options out there."

The New York Times is Grey Ladying itself all over the news again, and holy fuckballs are they making a sad hash of what could have been perfectly responsible journamalism. Like, the kind of journamalism that manages to tell the truth without equivocation or slant, but that also manages to be HONEST, for fuckssakes. Let's take a quick look at their latest bullshitty both-sides bullshit, shall we?


'Racially Tinged' My Taint.

In what might be a useful story had it not soft-pedaled one of its central points, the Times reported on suburban voters who might be a bit more inclined to vote for Republicans were it not for the party's decision to go full Hate Week on immigration and race in the final days of the campaign. Turning off people who might otherwise vote for the GOP is kind of a big story, you might think, but then we get to this mushy description of what's happening:

In Republican-leaning districts that include diverse populations or abut cities that do — from bulwarks of Sunbelt conservatism like Houston and Orange County, Calif., to the well-manicured bedroom communities outside Philadelphia and Minneapolis — the party is in danger of losing its House majority next week because Mr. Trump's racially-tinged nationalism has alienated these voters who once made up a dependable constituency.

Racially-tinged? Are GOP operatives distributing glasses that make everything look like Birth of a Nation? Later in the piece, while referencing Trump's Willie Horton 2: Latino Boogeyman ad, reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns do at least manage to say racist, but only while wearing their "some say" gloves to avoid seeming partisan. Or partisan-tinged:

The president amplified his fear-peddling Wednesday night with an online video that is being widely condemned as racist, showing a Mexican man convicted of killing two California deputies with a voice-over saying "Democrats let him into the country."

This would be the same ad that Fox News decided today is too racist for Fox News to run. At least as an ad -- once it's spread out into an entire season of Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, that shit's fine.

We suppose it would be too much to ask for the Times to actually call bigotry bigotry, so instead we'll have to settle for the knowledge that at least some potential GOP voters are finally finding all this overt racism a bit off-putting, unlike the rest of the time when they're fine with it being the unstated background of calls to be "tough on crime" and to "secure our borders." Now that they have their tax cuts, they may decide just to stay home or even vote for a Democrat, as long as there's no danger of another black guy becoming president.

Republican Ratfucking Sure Is Partisan!

Another NYT story this weekend provided a refreshingly straightforward attribution of who the baddies are, but then reflexively pulls back into fakey fake neutrality. Nothing inaccurate about this headline: "'They Don't Really Want Us to Vote': How Republicans Made It Harder" -- and no, that's not about mandatory coverage for Viagra prescriptions. The piece offers example after example of Republican-backed efforts to make voting harder for minorities and others who might be inclined to vote for Democrats. Hell, the piece even gets history right:

Limiting access to voting is rooted deep in American history, beginning with the founding fathers and peaking during the Jim Crow era in the South. But in the wake of the civil rights movement and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the idea that disenfranchising legitimate voters was unethical, and even un-American, gained traction.

No more. Almost two decades after the Bush v. Gore stalemate led to voting rules being viewed as key elements of election strategy, the issue is playing an extraordinary role in the midterm elections.

And why is this happening? Oh, easy: Maybe one party is doing it, but you know, it's all because of rising partisanship, plus a Supreme Court decision in which the Republican majority on the Court played no role the Times cares to mention:

Restrictions on voting, virtually all imposed by Republicans, reflect rising partisanship, societal shifts producing a more diverse America, and the weakening of the Voting Rights Act by the Supreme Court in 2013.

Nothing new here, of course: When the KKK used bombs to murder and terrorize blacks in Birmingham in 1963, very wise "moderates" condemned "extremists on both sides" -- both blacks who wanted to vote, and whites who murdered them for it.

Oh look, here is still more unhappiness about how "the political system in the US" -- not one party, mind you -- has become so very uncouth, this time from NYT's Maggie Haberman:

Gosh, but some people did yell at Sarah Sanders, so it really is the whole system, huh? If only everyone would just be nicer, it would be nice.

          Republicans Lost the Suburbs      Cache   Translate Page      

There’s a geographic signal to Tuesday’s congressional results that bursts through the noise: Congressional Republicans have been routed from the suburbs.

Here are some Democrats who took Republican seats on the outskirts of major cities: Sean Casten (IL-6) in the Chicago collar counties; Sharice Davids (KS-3) in the suburbs of Kansas City; Jennifer Wexton (VA-10) in the D.C. suburbs; Kendra Horn (OK-5) in the suburbs of Oklahoma City; Angie Craig (MN-2) south of the Twin Cities; Joe Cunningham (SC-1) around Charleston; Tom Malinowski (NJ-7), Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11), Max Rose (NY-11) around New York City.

Many of those were among 2016’s 25 “split districts”—GOP-represented districts that voted for Clinton, and made for obvious targets. They’ve been sliding toward Democrats for years. Others lurched left after voting for Trump in 2016. But amid various confusing patterns—the GOP winning big state races in the South; Democrats’ big victories in Michigan and Wisconsin—the trend is clear. Republicans are getting blown out of the places where once, long ago, the party found its most dedicated voters and defined its priorities.

Just look at Texas, where headlines of Beto O’Rourke’s narrow loss disguised how much he did for candidates down the ballot. Two powerful, long-serving Republicans—Houston’s John Culberson and Dallas’ Pete Sessions—were defeated by Democratic challengers. “Everybody is going down in Dallas County if they’re a Republican tonight,” Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith told MSNBC Tuesday night. Later, Pete Sessions gave a concession speech in which he explained what had happened: His conservatism had brought economic growth to Dallas (the so-called Texas Miracle, in which Sessions probably overstates his role), and he paid the price. “Unfortunately, that success was not enough to stem the liberal tide of people who have moved here from across the country.”

That might be right, in some places. Whether they’re leaving high-cost costal cities or low-growth areas in the Rust Belt, Americans keep moving to the Sun Belt. This has changed politics in places like Texas and Georgia. A quarter-million black people moved to Atlanta between 2010 and 2016, a bigger influx than anywhere in the United States. That’s part of what put Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams within striking distance on Tuesday.

That’s not all that’s happening, though. The Republican Party also went nuts, progressively alienating nearly all of its highly educated voters, culminating in the defection of the “Never Trump” Republicans, the last rats off the ship. And the suburbs changed too, as rings of white affluence became increasingly diverse, often home to pockets of poverty. The suburbs are younger now, and the family in the tract home next door is just as likely to have been priced out of the city as to have escaped it.

There’s also reason to expect suburbs everywhere to rally around a Democratic Party that rejects Trump’s reactionary, caustic politics. Things are going well there! In February, I wrote about what’s pulling American metro areas apart from the rest of the country:

Since the financial crisis, these places account for more than 93 percent of U.S. population growth, two-thirds of economic output, and 73 percent of employment gains. All those shares are growing. Those numbers fall rapidly and progressively as you look at midsize cities, small cities, and rural areas.

From the left, there was plenty of criticism for Democrats suburban gains after 2016—especially after Sen. Chuck Schumer couldn’t deliver the promised fruits of a centrist candidate: “For every blue-collar Democrat we lose in western Pennsylvania,” he said that summer, “we will pick up two moderate Republicans in the suburbs in Philadelphia, and you can repeat that in Ohio and Illinois and Wisconsin.” Needless to say it didn’t happen in 2016, and Clinton ran up the numbers in places like Orange County, California, while the party failed to make any gains in Congress. The strategy was derided as a pivot to the donor class.

This time, without any substantial ideological compromises, Democrats translated popularity into power.

The vanishing of the suburban Republican will have consequences in the House. They were federal officials, but they had powerful influence over how business got done in their home districts. John Culberson, for example, played an instrumental role in redirecting an important stretch of Houston’s light rail network away from a busy, popular street, jeopardizing the system’s long-term success.

For good or for ill, suburban Republicans also had a stake in metropolitan issues. So it was that defeated Rep. Leonard Lance, of New Jersey, was a rare Republican voice in the House advocating for support of the Gateway investment to repair critical rail infrastructure under the Hudson River. Sometimes, they dragged their party with them, or enough of it to matter, supporting programs with predominantly metropolitan impacts like the Low Income Housing Tax Credit or the TIGER grants for transportation projects.

They’ve been replaced by Democrats, of course, who should be even more likely to support policies that favor the country’s big metro areas. But if 2016 showed that metropolitan-rural divide in presidential preferences, 2018 shows that split solidifying in the legislature. That means, more than before, that urban policy is now the exclusive concern of the Democratic Party.

          The Evolution of TV Election Coverage Technology      Cache   Translate Page      

Every election night, news networks are forced to contend with two seemingly contradictory problems: more information than they can possibly report and more time than they can possibly fill. For the last 70 years, anchors, reporters, and producers from rival TV networks have competed to air the best, most accurate (and entertaining) coverage. Here are some of the most memorable innovations in TV election night technology:

The Chalkboard (1948)

The contest between Truman and Dewey was the first election night ever televised in the United States. While the election ended in a shocking Truman win, the TV broadcast itself was relatively sedate, with three anchors seated at a desk in front of Life magazine covers of the candidates. Much of the coverage was radio-friendly, but NBC adapted to the new visual medium in a few key ways, including by displaying vote totals on chalkboards that were erased and updated throughout the evening. Though the chalkboards were pretty messy by the end of the night, NBC’s coverage remains a master class in the lost art of legible handwriting.

UNIVAC Calls It for Eisenhower (1952)

In advance of the 1952 election, CBS tiptoed into the information age by buying a computer to predict election results and then ignoring its predictions. The network purchased a UNIVAC, one of the first commercially available computers, and commissioned a cutting-edge algorithm to project the electoral college and popular vote. Reporter Charles Collingwood provided updates on UNIVAC’s predictions from CBS headquarters while receiving dispatches from the actual room-sized computer in Philadelphia. Polls showed a close race between Dwight D. Eisenhower and Adlai Stevenson, but UNIVAC’s early calculations predicted an Eisenhower landslide. Afraid of looking stupid by trusting their “fabulous electronic machine” more than human pundits, CBS decided to tell viewers a little white lie. “We fed him some figures which were a little out of the line of the sort of thing that he’d been expecting,” Collingwood explained. “And so UNIVAC came up and said he just wouldn’t work under these conditions.” CBS adjusted its algorithm and then predicted a much closer race. But they’d made a mistake in the numbers and, once it was corrected, the computer again showed a huge Eisenhower lead. In the end, UNIVAC’s prediction was almost exactly right, and the first Republican president since Hoover was swept into office. Later that night, CBS came clean: “We should have had nerve enough to believe the machine in the first place. It was right, we were wrong. Next year, we’ll believe it.”

NBC’s Plastic Electoral College Map (1976)

Though the first few decades of broadcast news saw many revolutionary changes (including the proliferation of color TV), by the 1970s, results were still communicated mostly through numerical returns and flat graphics of the electoral map. According to the Los Angeles Times’ Stephen Battaglio, NBC anchor John Chancellor wanted to try something different for 1976. Chancellor spoke to executive Gordon Manning, who came up with the idea for an enormous clear plastic map that could be filled in with colored gels as states were called for Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. The political parties’ colors were assigned based on the British tradition—red for Democrats (after the Labour Party) and blue for Republicans (after the Conservative Party). NBC exiled Saturday Night Live from Studio 8H for three weeks to prepare for the election night broadcast, but discovered during rehearsals that the bright studio lights caused the plastic map to melt. NBC installed a cooling system before the big night and made the map a focal point of election coverage.

The Life and Death of the Voter News Service (1990)

After years of competing for the fastest exit polls and projections, ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN banded together to form a single exit-polling group, Voter Research & Surveys (later renamed Voter News Service), in advance of the 1990 midterms. The VNS served as a centralized pollster and decision desk, allowing every network to call races at the same time on election nights. But in 1994, much to the surprise of the other networks, ABC commissioned its own projection analysts and successfully scooped everyone else in a number of important races. In 2000, the VNS famously botched its Florida call. And after facing major technical difficulties in 2002, the VNS—and its spirit of cooperation—died out.

Tim Russert’s Whiteboard (2000)

Election night TV is crowded with prognosticators of all experience levels and political persuasions (CNN likes to make them all sit at a table and argue). And though advances in computing and statistical modelling have led to all kinds of new predictive insight, sometimes the simplest available technology is also the best. As early returns rolled in on election night 2000, NBC’s Tim Russert tallied the electoral math on a small whiteboard (which now sits in the Smithsonian). When the returns showed an increasingly close race, Russert jotted down three words: “Florida, Florida, Florida,” thereby Beetlejuicing the craziest election in modern American history into existence.

CNN’s Virtual Capitol (2008)

The next three entries on this list all come from CNN’s coverage of election night 2008, which was all-encompassing and spanned five dimensions (length, width, depth, time, and Wolf Blitzer). To help visualize the houses of Congress, CNN commissioned a virtual model of the Capitol building. CNN adapted the 3D model for subsequent elections and later perfected the form with myriad simulations of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

CNN’s will.i.am Hologram (2008)

CNN’s most memorable technological advance of 2008 didn’t have anything to do with electoral returns. Throughout the night, the network hyped up its new “holograms,” which would allow anyone to have a realistic conversation with Wolf Blitzer or Anderson Cooper. Blitzer spoke to reporter Jessica Yellin and beamed in will.i.am from Chicago, where Sen. Barack Obama’s soon-to-be-victory party was underway. Of course, the absurdly unrealistic “holograms” were not holograms at all, but composite images made by dozens of high-def cameras in front of a circular green screen. CNN’s senior video producer later said the network added the fuzzy blue glow to make the “holograms” seem less realistic, in order to avoid future suspicion that realistic news footage might be fake.

John King’s Magic Wall (2008)

John King debuted his magic wall of data 10 years ago, and other networks are still playing catch-up. King became an instant sensation for his touch-screen map of unprecedented geographic and demographic detail, as well as for the semifrequent technical difficulties and awkward pauses it created. Magic walls continue to be the real star makers of the election reporting business, from King to MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki.

NBC Brings Democracy Plaza Into the Future (2016)

Every two years, the major networks jockey for the best broadcasting infrastructure, but NBC has a built-in advantage no other network can claim: an ice skating rink. Since 2004, NBC has celebrated big elections by repurposing its Rockefeller Plaza headquarters into Democracy Plaza. That typically includes an electoral map of the United States drawn on its famous seasonal skating rink. In 2016, NBC took it to the next level with a virtual map that appeared to float above the rink. NBC has confirmed the return of Democracy Plaza in 2018, when it will presumably include a real-time rendering of the cast of This Is Us.

Partnership Provides Researchers with New Innovative Technology to Analyze and Explore American History

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. and Worcester, Mass. – November 5, 2018 –The American Antiquarian Society has partnered with Gale, a Cengage company, to make the world’s largest collection of Americana from the Colonial period through the 20th century more accessible to researchers. As part of the partnership, Gale has released American Historical Periodicals from the American Antiquarian Society, Series 6, a newly digitized series of nearly 200 titles that provides researchers with a history of the American people, offering multiple perspectives on the thought, culture, and society of North America through the eyes of those who lived and experienced it. Read Gale’s blog about the partnership and new series, here: http://bit.ly/2OrsArs.

“Over the years, we have been impressed by Gale’s leadership in the library market, the strength of their editorial process, and their innovative approach to the development of digital technology tools,” said Ellen S. Dunlap, President of the American Antiquarian Society. “American Historical Periodicals is an important project for the American Antiquarian Society, representing decades of collecting, cataloging, conserving and digitizing, and we are pleased to have a solid partner in Gale to help us take it to the next generation of researchers.”

Series 6 includes unusual and short-lived magazines as well as better-known titles with long runs. Topics cover a broad spectrum including: agriculture, anthropology, art, archaeology, education, family life, fashion, industrialization, literature, medicine, music, photography, politics, religion, science, sport and temperance.

Download images from Series 6, here: http://bit.ly/2RzL9M3.

This new series brings the collection more firmly into the 20th century. It extends coverage and fills gaps in approximately 45 titles from Series 1-5, enabling researchers to explore a more comprehensive documentary history of American life. Additionally, Gale is offering free access to more than 6 million pages of American periodicals in Series 1-5 to any U.S. or Canadian institution that owns a Gale Primary Sources archive.

Examples of newly acquired titles in Series 6 include:

• Tachymathist (Philadelphia): -Nov. 1, 1845. Issue No. 1 (only two issues ever published).

• New-York Weekly Review of Music, Literature, Fine Arts and Society (NY): 42 issues from 1867-1868.

• Agriculturist, and Journal of the State and County Societies (Nashville, TN): 6 issues from 1842, 1843.

Titles that extend coverage or fill gaps in Series 1-5 include:

• Banner of Light (Boston, MA): 1,010 issues from 1876-1906.

• Grumbler (Toronto, Canada): 13 issues from 1858 and 1859.

• The Woman’s Journal (Boston, MA): 1,715 issues from 1878-1911.

• Scientific American (New York, NY): 933 issues from 1878-1900.

• Southern Cultivator (Augusta, GA): 26 issues from 1844.

To provide a better research experience, the entire American Historical Periodicals collection (Series 1-6) has been integrated into Gale’s new Digital Scholar Lab. This integration allows researchers to apply natural language processing tools to raw text data (OCR) from the periodicals or Gale Primary Sources archives and perform textual analysis on large corpora of historical texts. Now researchers can analyze and explore historical text more interactively, generating new research insights and content sets not previously possible.

American Historical Periodicals from the American Antiquarian Society, Series 6 offers:

• nearly 200 newly digitized periodical titles, with more than 150 new to the program, providing researchers with expanded knowledge of American history.

• extended coverage and gap filling of 45 titles from Series 1-5, providing researchers with a more comprehensive history of American life.

• complementary access to more than 6 million pages of historical periodical content in Series 1-5 to U.S. and Canadian institutions that own a Gale Primary Resources archive.

• cross-searching and textual analysis with Gale’s Digital Scholar Lab and Gale Primary Sources, opening new research opportunities.

“American Historical Periodicals represents one of the most comprehensive libraries of American periodicals in the world,” said Seth Cayley, vice president of Gale Primary Sources. “Through our partnership with the American Antiquarian Society, Gale provides a unique documentary history of the American people and nation from the Colonial Era through to the Civil War, Reconstruction and the early 20th century.”

American Historical Periodicals from the American Antiquarian Society, Series 6 is currently available. Gale will showcase the new series at the Charleston Conference, November 6 in Charleston, South Carolina at Gale booth #141.

The LP is the group's first studio effort with guitarist/vocalist Pepper Keenan in more than a decade. "No Cross No Crown" was recorded in North Carolina with longtime producer John Custer. CORROSION OF CONFORMITY cut the disc in about forty days over the course of a year. CORROSION OF CONFORMITY guitarist Woody Weatherman told Guitar Interactive Magazine about "No Cross No Crown": "This record was approached a little differently than previous [albums]. We didn't spend a lot of… There was, like, no pre-production; we didn't have much of an idea of shit before we all showed up. It was, like, just… we showed up, [and] we'd do four- or five-day sessions." "As we were writing the songs, it started to take shape," Pepper added. "And once again, it was becoming something more than we… as a unit, it became bigger than the sum of its parts. And so once you get to that thing where it's in your head and you're consumed by it, if it ain't right, it's wrong. You've just gotta keep going at it." "There were several things that we threw in the trash," Woody continued. "We'd spend half a day on somebody's idea, and if it wasn't working after half a fucking day, throw it in the fucking trash and move to the next thing." Pepper went on to say that CORROSION OF CONFORMITY's music still sounds as valid today as it did when it was first recorded. "I think we can look back at C.O.C.'s career, you can look at [all the albums] and go… It sounds weird to say it, but they stand the test of time," he said. "And it's really important that it doesn't sound dated. I don't want it to sound like it's the new millennium or the '90s or whatever; it's gotta sound like… when you play it 20 years later, it still sounds correct." "It's been a conscious thought of ours for a long time," Woody added. "'Let's not make a record that sounds like it was made in 1991 or something. Although we're making a record in 1991, let's try not to do that. Let's make it sounds like it's…' Like Pep said, in 20 or 30 years, it still sounds relevant."

          Suuf in Senegal      Cache   Translate Page      
I live in the U.S. Recently, I returned from a visit to Senegal, my third. I no longer stay in Dakar but in locations elsewhere.

Years ago, in Philadelphia, I met a man from Dakar, Abe, who would later allow me to accompany him home. It would be my first trip to Africa.

We stayed in Dakar for a week when he said he had to make a trip home. This meant to his birthplace in a small village very southeast in Senegal. I asked to go and, after great consideration, he said yes. We went by car, bus, car again, and many times on foot, for four days, arriving in his home village, deep in south east Senegal.

In the U.S., Abe rountinely had sex with me. We were about the same age, in our 40s. Abe was 100% total top, and I accomodated him as often as he would let me. While considering myself very much a versatile top, I learned first hand the seduction of hearing an elder African accent pouring out the words "I want to f*** you".

But in Senegal, he would not even discuss it. I understood. I'm causcasian. It's Africa. While at his home, his father and his father's brother, men of 70+ years of age, took me into a small home where, to be blunt, promptly undressed and asked me to bathe them. The broken english was so bad, had they not been naked and rubbing each other out I would not have known what they were saying. I later learned they mistakingly thought I was a servant of Abe's. Once they were confident I got the idea of why I was there, as I performed my chores, they began to talk to each other in Wolof as though I was invisible. Sure, I was very nervous, but no one ever had to tell me what elder meant in Africa.

The next day, I was asked if I wanted to visit a nearby National Park and was told that, where we would be going, we would have to stay overnight, in make-shift tents. We would have to stay just outside the Park. I said sure, and Abe helped me simplify my packing. Abe did not travel with us as I am left to the safety of totally strange men. As I find out 1 hour into the walk, men who do not speak english. And this is a really, really big park.

At this time of year it was very dry, and hot, but at night, it would get somewhat agreeable around 2-5am. The night sky would be so crystal clear it was like you could touch it. You would never know there were so many adult African men. From total strangers walking by, speaking only to others in passing, to men camped in small groups. The night air is what cools them, what frees them to think. And they so do like to walk.

After visiting the Park, the last night in the tents, we had a little too much to drink, and several of the men, in Wolof, said they must walk. One thing led to another and I ended up following them ... at 3am.

We walked for sometime, until I realized I could no longer see them, and soon came upon a small camp, no tents, but with a fire that had just been put out, and was still smoldering. As I looked around into the darkenss, I could hear through my dizzyness from the drink, what I thought were giggles, and whispering.

I walked into the woods. My chest began to pound uncontrollably but I could not turn around. Where would I turn to? For a moment, I thought, no one in the world knows exactly where I am at this very moment, and just as I thought how entoxicating and freeing that is, the thought of Abe not knowing where I am shook me.

As the whispering turned into chanting, singing, I came onto a small clearing, around 30 yards in diameter. It was probably just me, but the moon was so bright, it was like the area was lit up like a room. I literally could not see to the other side of the clearing.

But there stood, before me, two very large men, both at least 250 lbs, basically doing what amounted to a slow motioned coregraphed wrestling match. They were surrounded by the men I had followed, some I saw while walking, and several others, all told about 15-18 men. They were all naked. Except for the two wrestlers, none were younger than me.

Eventually I got the nerve to not try to hide in the small bush I found myself in, when I felt both my arms go limp. I'm talking numb. I was led into the circle, and undressed. I felt sure I was about to faint. The feeling was constant. The chanting became a rhythmic rain eventually blurring me into subconsciousness.

Soon, I was startled by this seemingly disturbing argument between one of the wrestlers and an older man, perhaps in his 60s. I was quickly taken back into the woods and kept there for what seemed like forever, but probably about 20-30 minutes. Each time the voices grew loud and aggressive, I would be petted and held more closely. The scent of African sweat only made me more drunk. Several times I felt myself falling to my knees wanting to orally please anything that came about. I was constantly being held up. As best I remember, that's all that happened in the wooded areas.

Then the most strange thing that has ever happened to me in my life occured. All the men around me slowly walked away, one by one, until all I could see was the well lit area near me. Feeling my vision closing in on me ever so subtly, I walked out of the woods into the clearing.

The wrestler, now completely alone, motioned me to him. As I got close I fainted. When I awoke I was being kissed and caressed. He would not stop looking at my eyes. Every time I went to close them, he would get upset. I could not understand anything he said, most the times he wasn't talking to me anyway, but I understood clearly he wanted my eyes open.

In the end, he had his way with me to completion. He made sure of it. But to say this event was only sexual would be a lasting flaw in my character. He dressed me, walked me for awhile, once I noticed he had disappeared, soon others came about, smiling, waving, pointing the direction for me. No more giggling, no more whispering, no more arguing.

What happen to me that night changed my life.

Two days later, on our way back to Dakar, while resting, I asked Abe, who I thought knew nothing about what had happened, would he ever want me to talk about what I did in Africa. He only shook his head. About three days out we are in another National Park, and while being entertained, a white European couple now living in Cape Verde, makes a point of cautioning the other 'tourists' about wandering near National Parks late at night without escort.

I never felt so un-tourist in all my life.

          Packers place Geronimo Allison on IR, release Jermaine Whitehead      Cache   Translate Page      

Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst announced several moves on Tuesday afternoon, one of which was somewhat expected and another that will undoubtedly raise a few eyebrows. 

Wide receiver Geronimo Allison has been placed on injured reserve, a day after head coach Mike McCarthy indicated that the third year veteran would most likely need surgery after a visit to core injury specialist Dr. William Meyer in Philadelphia. 

The Packers also released safety Jermaine Whitehead, two days after he was ejected from the team's game against the Patriots for throwing a punch. While it's unlikely he was released strictly because of that infraction, it most likely didn't help a player whose play has been somewhat inconsistent throughout the 2018 season. 

A day after adding saefty Ibraheim Campbell via waivers, the Packers continued to augment their defensive backfield by promoting cornerback Will Redmond from the practice squad to the 53 man roster. 

Redmond, a 5-foot-11, 186-pound third-year player, was signed to the Packers’ practice squad on Sept. 11. He was originally selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the third round (No. 68 overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft out of Mississippi State. Redmond spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve with a knee injury and the first eight games of 2017 with an ankle injury. He was released by the 49ers on Oct. 31, 2017, and signed by the Kansas City Chiefs to the practice squad on Nov. 9, 2017, where he spent the rest of the season. Redmond was released by the Chiefs on Sept. 1.

          'Big injury' looms for Packers WR Geronimo Allison      Cache   Translate Page      

-- After seeming like one of the breakout targets in the Green Bay Packers' offense this season, wide receiver Geronimo Allison's third year in the league has quickly taken a turn for the worst.

After dealing with a concussion suffered against the Buffalo Bills in September and an ensuing hamstring injury, Allison caught just one pass for 14 yards against the Los Angeles Rams in his return to the field.

However, the reunion didn't last long. Allison was ruled out for Sunday night's meeting with the New England Patriots because of a groin injury, which, according to coach Mike McCarthy, is significant.

McCarthy referred to Allison's injury as a "pretty big" one that required him to meet with core injury specialist Dr. William Meyer in Philadelphia. 

According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Meyer is documented to have operated on former Packers defensive backs Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins for their respective injuries. Surgery is a realistic option for Allison, who has been plagued by injuries for most of the year.

Along with Allison, two other starters left Foxborough, Massachusetts with injuries of their own.

Cornerback Kevin King suffered a hamstring injury and right tackle Bryan Bulaga left the game early with a knee injury. Fortunately for the Packers, the diagnosis on both of them, so far, are reassuring and shouldn't be long-term issues.

According to McCarthy, King will be "hard-pressed" to play this week against the Miami Dolphins. It would be the third game he's missed this season.

Bulaga, meanwhile, reportedly avoided a major injury to his knee.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport said Monday that there was no structural damage found in Bulaga's knee and there's the possibility that he could even play this week against the Dolphins. McCarthy later confirmed those sentiments, offering the rest of the week to truly define Bulaga's diagnosis.

          Suuf in Senegal      Cache   Translate Page      
I live in the U.S. Recently, I returned from a visit to Senegal, my third. I no longer stay in Dakar but in locations elsewhere.

Years ago, in Philadelphia, I met a man from Dakar, Abe, who would later allow me to accompany him home. It would be my first trip to Africa.

We stayed in Dakar for a week when he said he had to make a trip home. This meant to his birthplace in a small village very southeast in Senegal. I asked to go and, after great consideration, he said yes. We went by car, bus, car again, and many times on foot, for four days, arriving in his home village, deep in south east Senegal.

In the U.S., Abe rountinely had sex with me. We were about the same age, in our 40s. Abe was 100% total top, and I accomodated him as often as he would let me. While considering myself very much a versatile top, I learned first hand the seduction of hearing an elder African accent pouring out the words "I want to f*** you".

But in Senegal, he would not even discuss it. I understood. I'm causcasian. It's Africa. While at his home, his father and his father's brother, men of 70+ years of age, took me into a small home where, to be blunt, promptly undressed and asked me to bathe them. The broken english was so bad, had they not been naked and rubbing each other out I would not have known what they were saying. I later learned they mistakingly thought I was a servant of Abe's. Once they were confident I got the idea of why I was there, as I performed my chores, they began to talk to each other in Wolof as though I was invisible. Sure, I was very nervous, but no one ever had to tell me what elder meant in Africa.

The next day, I was asked if I wanted to visit a nearby National Park and was told that, where we would be going, we would have to stay overnight, in make-shift tents. We would have to stay just outside the Park. I said sure, and Abe helped me simplify my packing. Abe did not travel with us as I am left to the safety of totally strange men. As I find out 1 hour into the walk, men who do not speak english. And this is a really, really big park.

At this time of year it was very dry, and hot, but at night, it would get somewhat agreeable around 2-5am. The night sky would be so crystal clear it was like you could touch it. You would never know there were so many adult African men. From total strangers walking by, speaking only to others in passing, to men camped in small groups. The night air is what cools them, what frees them to think. And they so do like to walk.

After visiting the Park, the last night in the tents, we had a little too much to drink, and several of the men, in Wolof, said they must walk. One thing led to another and I ended up following them ... at 3am.

We walked for sometime, until I realized I could no longer see them, and soon came upon a small camp, no tents, but with a fire that had just been put out, and was still smoldering. As I looked around into the darkenss, I could hear through my dizzyness from the drink, what I thought were giggles, and whispering.

I walked into the woods. My chest began to pound uncontrollably but I could not turn around. Where would I turn to? For a moment, I thought, no one in the world knows exactly where I am at this very moment, and just as I thought how entoxicating and freeing that is, the thought of Abe not knowing where I am shook me.

As the whispering turned into chanting, singing, I came onto a small clearing, around 30 yards in diameter. It was probably just me, but the moon was so bright, it was like the area was lit up like a room. I literally could not see to the other side of the clearing.

But there stood, before me, two very large men, both at least 250 lbs, basically doing what amounted to a slow motioned coregraphed wrestling match. They were surrounded by the men I had followed, some I saw while walking, and several others, all told about 15-18 men. They were all naked. Except for the two wrestlers, none were younger than me.

Eventually I got the nerve to not try to hide in the small bush I found myself in, when I felt both my arms go limp. I'm talking numb. I was led into the circle, and undressed. I felt sure I was about to faint. The feeling was constant. The chanting became a rhythmic rain eventually blurring me into subconsciousness.

Soon, I was startled by this seemingly disturbing argument between one of the wrestlers and an older man, perhaps in his 60s. I was quickly taken back into the woods and kept there for what seemed like forever, but probably about 20-30 minutes. Each time the voices grew loud and aggressive, I would be petted and held more closely. The scent of African sweat only made me more drunk. Several times I felt myself falling to my knees wanting to orally please anything that came about. I was constantly being held up. As best I remember, that's all that happened in the wooded areas.

Then the most strange thing that has ever happened to me in my life occured. All the men around me slowly walked away, one by one, until all I could see was the well lit area near me. Feeling my vision closing in on me ever so subtly, I walked out of the woods into the clearing.

          Democrats appear close to taking back control of the House      Cache   Translate Page      

WASHINGTON — The Democrats picked up at least two dozen House seats Tuesday and appeared on track to retake control of the chamber, a victory that could put a check on President Donald Trump's agenda over the next two years and trigger a multitude of investigations into his business dealings and administration.

As one of the most volatile midterm elections in U.S. history wound down, the Democrats drew ever closer to the 218 seats needed for a majority, with dozens of races still undecided. A Democratic victory would break the Republicans' eight-year hold on the House that began with the tea party revolt of 2010.

While the Republican Party retained control of the Senate, a win for the Democrats in the House would end the GOP monopoly on power in Washington and open a new era of divided government.

"Tomorrow will be a new day in America," Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said at a victory party in Washington.

The campaign unfolded against a backdrop of ugly rhetoric and angry debates on immigration, health care and the role of Congress in overseeing the president.

With the Democratic Party needing a net gain of 23 to take back the House, its candidates flipped seats in several suburban districts outside Washington, Philadelphia, Miami, Chicago and Denver that were considered prime targets for turnover because they were won by Hillary Clinton in 2016. The Democrats also made inroads in Trump country, where they tried to win back white working-class voters.

Midterm elections are typically difficult for the party in power, but the GOP's hold on power was further weakened by an unusually large number of retirements as well as infighting between conservatives and centrists over their allegiance to Trump.

The Democrats, in turn, benefited from extraordinary voter enthusiasm, robust fundraising and unusually fresh candidates. More women than ever were running, along with veterans and minorities, many of them motivated by revulsion over Trump.

As the returns came in, the House was on track to break the record of 84 female members of one party or the other.

In trying to stem Republican losses, Trump made only passing reference to his $1.5 trillion tax cut — the GOP Congress' signature achievement — and instead barnstormed through mostly white regions of the country, interjecting dark and foreboding warnings. He predicted an "invasion" from the migrant caravan making its way toward the U.S. and decried the "radical" agenda of speaker-in-waiting Pelosi.

Trump also took little responsibility for the House, saying his focus was on saving the Senate.

On Tuesday night, he called to congratulate Pelosi and acknowledged her plea for bipartisanship, the leader's spokesman said.

Health care and immigration were high on voters' minds as they cast ballots, according to a ranging survey of the American electorate conducted by The Associated Press. AP VoteCast also showed a majority of voters considered Trump a factor in their votes.

The Democratic candidates tried to stick to an economic message of lowering health care costs and investing in infrastructure to create jobs.

They also promised to clean up government. With control of the House, Democrats will chair powerful committees and have subpoena power to seek Trump's tax returns and more aggressively investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether there was any collusion by the president's campaign.

In the Miami area, former Clinton administration Cabinet member Donna Shalala won an open seat, while GOP Rep. Carlos Curbelo lost his bid for a third term in another district.

In the suburbs outside the nation's capital, Virginia Rep. Barbara Comstock — among the most endangered GOP incumbents, branded Barbara "Trumpstock" by Democrats — lost to Jennifer Wexton, a prosecutor and state legislator.

And outside Richmond, Virginia, one-time tea party favorite Rep. Dave Brat lost to Democrat Abigail Spanberger, a former CIA operative motivated to run for office after the GOP vote to gut the Affordable Care Act. Like other Democrats across the country, Spanberger emphasized protecting people with pre-existing conditions from being denied coverage or charged more by insurers.

Pennsylvania was particularly daunting for Republicans after court-imposed redistricting and a rash of retirements put several seats in play. Democratic favorite Conor Lamb, who stunned Washington by winning a special election in the state, beat Republican Rep. Keith Rothfus in a new district. At least three other red districts flipped to blue.

In Kansas, Democrat Sharice Davids beat a GOP incumbent to become one of two Native American women, with Deb Haaland of New Mexico, elected to the House. Davids is also openly gay.

Democrats welcomed other firsts, including two Muslim-American women, Rhasida Tlaib of Michigan and Minnesota's Ilhan Oman, who is also the first Somali-American elected to Congress. The Republican side of the aisle elected mostly white men.

But in Kentucky, one of the top Democratic recruits, retired Marine fighter pilot Amy McGrath, lost her bid to oust to three-term Rep. Andy Barr in the Lexington-area district.

Republicans had expected the GOP tax plan would be the cornerstone of their election agenda this year, but it became a potential liability in key states along the East and West coasts where residents could face higher tax bills because of limits on property and sales tax deductions.

The tax law was particularly problematic for Republicans in New Jersey, where at least three GOP-held seats flipped. The winners included Democrat Mikie Sherrill, a former Navy pilot and federal prosecutor who ran for a suburban Newark seat.

The GOP campaign committee distanced itself from eight-term Rep. Steve King of Iowa after he was accused of racism and anti-Semitism, but he won anyway.

In California, four GOP seats in the one-time Republican stronghold of Orange County were in play, along with three other seats to the north beyond Los Angeles and into the Central Valley.

"We always knew these races are going to be close," said Rep. Katherine Clark of Massachusetts, co-chair of House Democrats' recruitment efforts. "It's just a very robust class of candidates that really reflects who we are as a country."

          Humorous Yet Harrowing ‘Me Voting In 2016 VS In 2018’ Meme Takes Over The Web      Cache   Translate Page      

Images via Shaun Jeffers / Shutterstock.com and Gritty

If you thought the choices that one person makes wouldn’t fray the fabric of the world, the Twitter community would like you to take a seat.

The latest trend to take social media by storm is the hilarious yet painful ‘Me Voting in 2016 VS Me Voting in 2018’ meme, which depicts the naïve and optimistic attitudes possessed by voters two years ago in comparison with their perspectives now, which appear to have waned drastically.

Apt responses to 2018’s outlooks for Election Day include the botched restoration of Ecco Homo Fresco, as well as a well-groomed Prince Harry versus ‘Gritty’ the Philadelphia Flyers mascot.

Have a laugh at some brilliant takes on the meme, but here’s hoping it doesn’t get too extreme in the years to come.

Hablar de Horrendous es hablar de una de las bandas de Death Metal mas valoradas de la actualidad. La banda de Philadelphia va ya por su cuarta entrega discográfica y practican un Death Metal que es comparado con Death, Dismember, Pestilence, Asphyx, Autopsy, Obituary, Edge of Sanity...etc. Lo que os puedo decir es que en los últimos tiempos están apostando por el progresivo.
Prescience es la típica Intro atmosférica que se lleva hoy en día, pero la verdad es que no me dice nada, ni frío ni calor y al alcance de cualquier banda de cualquier estilo, muy impersonal, recordaos que esta banda, los Horrendous, siempre destacaron por sus pasajes acústicos, pero no hay nada de eso en la intro.
Soothsayer es un medio tiempo con un riff bastante atmosférico que no termina de cuajar, lo mejor es el ritmo técnico de la batería y los cambios de ritmo que suenan frescos y muy técnicos, tirando de Shred , Schuldinner aplaudiría la técnica de estos muchachos, siguen la estela del último álbum de los Death, también hay que destacar la labor del bajo. El tema tiene elementos de Jazz/ Fussion en la base rítmica a lo Atheist y nos regala un solo limpio y técnico que podríamos calificar de Avantgarde.... mucha pirotecnia y fuegos artificiales aunque no me termina de enganchar.
The Idolaeter es el segundo corte. Ritmo acústico con una batería que tira de platillo y un bajo que se permite solos. Muy en la línea de la Bay Area y también de los Annihilator solo que con 1000 veces mas técnica que ellos. Cambio de ritmo agresivo y progresivo típico de los Metallica. En este trabajo cada vez apuestan mas por el Death/ Thrash, han perdido agresividad a raudales para centrarse en algo mas técnico y no me extrañaría que se marcaran un Opeth en el futuro. Hay buenos momentos en el tema, sobre todo cuando se produce la aceleración que recuerda a los clásicos de Death.
Golgothan Tongues suena mas a metal progresivo y Heavy Metal clásico que a Death, se junta la influencia de Dream Theater con la de Judas Priest. A medida que avanza el tema van acelerando pero no le dan demasiado sentido al tema. La melodía del inicio estaba muy lograda pero a medida que va avanzando el tema van perdiendo intensidad pero se vuelven a encontrar así mismos con un solo de guitarra muy atmosférico y de bella factura, muy melódico por cierto y como os decía, la conclusión de este trabajo es que los Horrendous se alejan con pasos agigantados del Death Metal.
Divine Anhedonia vuelve a destacar por ritmos de Jazz Fussion en la base rítmica y la labor de Jazz de su bajista que tiene un gran protagonismo durante el álbum y no hace falta poner ejemplos de bandas de Death que apuesten por el Jazz, sin ir mas lejos los Mekong Delta alemanes que se dedican al Thrash técnico llevan años haciendo esto y no están endiosados como los Horrendous. Este es el único tema donde se produce una aceleración agresiva y donde intentan introducir elementos agresivos y mezclarlos con death técnico, se hace bastante espeso a mitad de camino aunque siempre hay chispazos de luz.
Devotion - Blood for Ink es de los últimos temas es como si al final del plástico se dieran prisa por abarcar un estilo del que están prescindiendo de lleno, darle un toque agresivo al álbum. Ganan en potencia pero pierden en técnica, además que esta clase de temas están demasiado vistos y es que hay cientos de bandas que imitan a la segunda etapa de Death, cuando se pasaron al Death técnico.
Por fin un fragmento acústico como Threnody, mira que se hizo de rogar. Horrendous siempre destaco por estos temas acústicos atmosféricos de bella factura que sirven para cualquier estilo musical pero tengo que decir que antes tenían una atmósfera oscura que han perdido por completo en los últimos años.
Finalizamos con Obulus, un tema con elementos de Death/ Doom, un inicio lento a lo Autopsy solo que con mucha mas técnica que esa banda. Son ocho minutos de tema y hay momentos un tanto lineales que no aportan absolutamente nada. La atmósfera del tema a base de sintetizadores me deja mas frío que un témpano, el cambio de ritmo es lineal y sin garra, no es un gran tema para cerrar el álbum.
Horrendous junto a Undergang y Gruesome se convirtieron de la noche a la mañana en las bandas de Death Metal actuales que debían recoger el legado de los mitos de los noventa/ ochenta, sus anteriores álbumes rozaron el cielo con las manos.
Ahora llega esta cuarta entrega donde aplaudo su valentía por intentar ser ambiciosos y prosperar su idea musical pero el cambio fue a peor. Horrendous cada vez suena menos a Death Metal y acabarán tocando sin más rock o metal progresivo y sino al tiempo. Hay momentos muy brillantes pero también hay otros que no entran ni con cien escuchas, algo forzados por momentos y es que se pusieron el listón tan alto que cabía esperar muchísimo más de ellos.

          NBA Rumors: Sixers Could Offer Jerryd Bayless, Shake Milton, And Draft Pick For Kent Bazemore, Per ‘Fansided’      Cache   Translate Page      

Kent Bazemore to Philadelphia

Since the 2018 NBA offseason, Atlanta Hawks shooting guard Kent Bazemore has been frequently mentioned in various trade rumors. With the Hawks attempting to undergo a full-scale rebuild, Atlanta is no longer an ideal place to stay for Bazemore. As of now, the Hawks are prioritizing the development of their young players, and it is highly expected that Bazemore will be available on the trading block before the February NBA trade deadline.

According to Fansided’s Soaring Down South, one of the NBA teams who could express an interest in trading for Kent Bazemore is the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers are currently one of the three favorite teams to fully dominate the LeBron James-less Eastern Conference in the 2018-19 NBA season. In order to strengthen their chance of beating Eastern Conference powerhouse teams like the Boston Celtics and the Toronto Raptors in a best-of-seven series, the Sixers must address the issues on their roster as early as possible.

          Army edges Air Force, 17-14      Cache   Translate Page      

For Army, it's one down, one to go.

The Black Knights of West Point play an entire season of football like every other college football team, but twice a year the motivation to win rises to a higher level. The contests with Air Force and Navy are the games that matter most to the cadets. Those struggles -- and the Air Force-Navy game -- comprise the three games that determine which academy gets possession of the Commander-In-Chief's (CIC) Trophy, a massive silver and black award that symbolizes football excellence among the military community.

On Saturday, Army (7-2) needed all the emotion it could summon to defeat visiting Air Force 17-14 before a sellout crowd of 38,502 at West Point's Michie Stadium. With the win, Army will retain the CIC Trophy for 2019 since even if the Black Knights were to lose to Navy in that annual struggle on December 8, each of the three academies would have one victory. Air Force beat Navy 35-7 on Oct. 6.

Under the rules for the guardianship of the trophy, in the event of a three-way tie, the school which had possession of the trophy the previous year gets to retain the trophy.

Army beat both Air Force and Navy in 2017. But make no mistake -- the Black Knights want nothing less than a dominating win against struggling Navy in their game next month in Philadelphia.

"It's a hated, heated rivalry," said Army head coach Jeff Monken. "There's going to be a lot of emotion in these games. It was quite a battle and I was really proud of our team just finding a way to win. They hit some throws in the second half and made it a ball game. Stopping them on fourth down and then converting our own fourth down play on the final play of the game kind of epitomizes the mental toughness of our team."

While some classic triple-option runs mixed with some timely passes to give Army the lead, it was the Black Knights' tough and determined defense that sealed the win. Trailing 17-14 with 3:02 left, Air Force got a final chance to try to win. Falcons quarterback D.J. Hammond III, a sophomore who had come on in relief to start the second half after Isaiah Sanders had failed to gain any points for the visitors in the first 30 minutes, started to move his team down field. A 19-yard completion to Geraud Sanders brought Air Force to the Army 47.

Cole Fagan rushed for 4 yards and Joe Saucier followed with a run for 5, putting Air Force on the Army 38 in a third-and-1 situation. On the next play, Army linebacker Cole Christiansen, who came into the game tied with fellow linebacker James Nachtigal for the team lead in tackles with 48, broke through the line and dropped Air Force fullback Kadin Remsberg for a 2-yard loss. Now in a fourth-and-3 situation with just 1:17 on the clock, Hammond darted right and decided to keep the ball as he turned to move forward. He was met by Christiansen and Nachtigal, who stopped the Falcons signal caller for no gain. Army took over on downs and four rushes later -- including a Hopkins run on fourth-and-1 that let Army keep possession -- the clock ran out, the cannons were fired and Army had its seventh win of the year.

"They played a little bit differently in the second half and we struggled at times," Christiansen said. "But we just got it done."

Army, which leads the nation with a staggering 40:02 average time of possession through its first eight games, took the opening kickoff and quarterback Kelvin Hopkins orchestrated a 21-play, 75-yard drive that overcame a pair of illegal blocking penalties and an unsportsmanlike conduct infraction. Fullback Darnell Woolfolk's 1-yard TD run put Army up 7-0.

"The biggest thing I'll take from my time here is grinding out at practice and meeting with all these guys," Woolfolk said. "I think we have an amazing group of people around this team. Honestly, I feel truly blessed to have them in my life."

That drive lasted 13:03 and was the fourth drive of 10 minutes or more this year for the Black Knights. All other Football Bowl Championship Series teams have combined for just six drives lasting at least 10 minutes.

The teams traded punts on the next three possessions. Army followed with an 11-play, 89-yard drive that ended with Woolfolk, who finished with a game-high 117 rushing yards and logged his first 100-yard game of the year, blasting ahead six yards for a touchdown and a 14-0 halftime lead.

Army defensive back Mike Reynolds added a crucial interception on the Army 3 in the second quarter to help keep the Falcons off the board; he almost duplicated the feat in the third quarter, but settled for knocking the ball to the ground.

Air Force made adjustments at halftime and the Falcons defense began to play tighter on the line, resulting in shorter gains by Army. With Hammond calling the plays on offense for Air Force, the visitors were able convert their third possession into points, thanks in no small part to the aggressive play of their best defender, Jeremy Fejedelem. The junior free safety swept through a hole as Army punter Nick Schrage tried to launch a punt from inside his own 20 and Fejedelem got a hand on the ball, setting Air Force up at the Army 34.

Calling eight runs and a pass (complete for a 5-yard gain to Remsberg), Hammond completed the march by running the ball one yard into the end zone.

Army responded with a 13-play drive that left Monken with a challenge: should Army attempt a field goal or try for the first down in a fourth-and-3 situation on the Air Force 13? Monken chose to go for the field goal and John Abercrombie's kick made it 17-6.

On the ensuing drive, Joseph Saucier scored on a 6-yard run, then took a pitch from Hammond for the two-point conversion to make it 17-14.

Army returns to action next Saturday at noon at Michie Stadium to host Lafayette. Air Force hosts New Mexico in Colorado Springs at 3:30 pm (all times Eastern).

          Adventures in Open Source: #OSMC 2018 – Day -1      Cache   Translate Page      

The annual Open Source Monitoring Conference (OSMC) held in Nürnberg, Germany each year brings together pretty much everyone who is anyone in the free and open source monitoring space. I really look forward to attending, and so do a number of other people at OpenNMS, but this year I won the privilege, so go me.

The conference is a lot of fun, which must be the reason for the hell trip to get here this year. Karma must be trying to bring things into balance.

As an American Airlines frequent flier whose home airport is RDU, most of my trips to Europe involve Heathrow airport (American has a direct flight from RDU to LHR that I’ve taken more times than I can count).

I hate that airport with the core of my being, and try to avoid it whenever possible. While I could have taken a flight from LHR directly to Nürnberg on British Airways, I decided to fly to Philadelphia and take a direct American flight to Munich. It is just about two hours by train from MUC to Nürnberg Hbf and I like trains, so combine that with getting to skip LHR and it is a win/win.

But it was not to be.

I got to the airport and watched as my flight to PHL got delayed further and further. Chris, at the Admiral’s Club desk, was able to re-route me, but that meant a flight through Heathrow (sigh). Also, the Heathrow flight left five hours later than my flight to Philadelphia, and I ended up waiting it out at the airport (Andrea had dropped me off and I didn’t want to ask her to drive all the way back to get me just for a couple of hours).

Because of the length of this trip I had to check a bag, and I had a lot of trepidation that my bag would not be re-routed properly. Chris even mentioned that American had actually put it on the Philadelphia flight but he had managed to get it removed and put on the England flight, and American’s website showed it loaded on the plane.

That also turns out to be the last record American has on my bag, at least on the website I can access.

American Tracking Website

The fight to London was uneventful. American planes tend to land at Terminal 3 and most other British Airways planes take off from Terminal 5, so you have to make your way down a series a long corridors and take a bus to the other terminal. Then you have to go through security, which is usually when my problems begin.

I wear contact lenses, and since my eyes tend to react negatively to the preservatives found in saline solution I use a special, preservative-free brand of saline. Unfortunately, it is only available in 118ml bottles. As most frequent fliers know, the limit for the size of liquid containers for carry on baggage is 100ml, although the security people rarely notice the difference. When they do I usually just explain that I need it for my eyes and I’m allowed to bring it with me. That is, everywhere except Heathrow airport. Due to the preservative-free nature of the saline I can’t move it to another container for fear of contamination.

Back in 2011 was the first time that my saline was ever confiscated at Heathrow. Since then I’ve carried a doctor’s note stating that it is “medically necessary” but once even then I had it confiscated a few years later at LHR because the screener didn’t like the fact that my note was almost a year old. That said, many times have I gone through that airport with no one noticing the slightly larger size of my saline bottle, but on this trip it was not to be.

When your carry on items get tagged for screening at Heathrow’s Terminal 5, you kind of wait in a little mob of people for the one person to methodically go through your stuff. Since I had several hours between flights it was no big deal for me, but it is still very annoying. Of course when the screener got to my items he was all excited that he had stopped the terrorist plot of the century by discovering my saline bottle was 18ml over the limit, and he truly seemed disappointed when I produced my doctor’s note, freshly updated as of August of this year.

Screeners at Heathrow are not imbued with much decision making ability, so he literally had to take my note and bottle to a supervisor to get it approved. I was then allowed to take it with me, but I couldn’t help thinking that the terrorists had won.

The rest of my stay at the world’s worst airport was without incident, and I squeezed into my window seat on the completely full A319 to head to Munich.

One we landed I breezed through immigration (Germans run their airports a bit more efficiently than the British) and waited for my bag. And waited. And waited.

When I realized it wouldn’t be arriving with me, I went to look for a BA representative. The sign said to find them at the “Lost and Found” kiosk, but the only two kiosks in the rather small baggage area were not staffed. I eventually left the baggage area and made my way to the main BA desk, where I managed to meet Norbert. After another 15 minutes or so, Norbert brought me a form to fill out and promised that I would receive an e-mail and a text message with a “file number” to track the status of my bag.

I then found the S-Bahn train which would take me to the Munich Hauptbahnhof where I would get my next train to Nürnberg.

I had made a reservation for the train to insure I had a seat, but of course that was on the 09:55 train which I would have taken had I been on the PHL flight. I changed that to a 15:00 train when I was rerouted, and apparently one change is all you get with Deutsche Bahn, but Ronny had suggested I buy a “flexpreis” ticket so I could take any train from Munich to Nürnberg that I wanted. I saw there were a number of “Inter-City Express (ICE)” trains available, so I figured I would just hop on the first one I found.

When I got to the station I saw that a train was leaving from Platform (Gleis) 20 at 15:28. It was now 15:30 so I ran and boarded just before it pulled out of the station.

It was the wrong train.

Well, not exactly. There are a number of types of trains you can take. The fastest are the ICE trains that run non-stop between major cities, but there are also “Inter-City (IC)” trains that make more stops. I had managed to get on a “Regional Bahn (RB)” train which makes many, many stops, turning my one hour trip into three.

(sigh)

The man who took my ticket was sympathetic, and told me to get off at Ingolstadt and switch to an ICE train. I was chatting on Mattermost with Ronny most of this time, and he was able to verify the proper train and platform I needed to take. That train was packed, but I ended up sitting with some lovely people who didn’t mind chatting with me in English (I so love visiting Germany for this reason).

So, about seven hours later than I had planned I arrived at my hotel, still sans luggage. After getting something to eat I started the long process of trying to locate my bag.

I started on Twitter. Both the people at American and British Airways asked me to DM them. The AA folks said I needed to talk with the BA folks and the BA folks still have yet to reply to me. Seriously BA, don’t reach out to me if you don’t plan to do anything. It sets up expectations you apparently can’t meet.

Speaking of not doing anything, my main issue was that I need a “file reference” in order to track my lost bag, but despite Norbert’s promise I never received a text or e-mail with that information. I ended up calling American, and the woman there was able to tell me that she showed the bag was in the hands of BA at LHR. That was at least a start, so she transferred me to BA customer support, who in turn transferred me to BA delayed baggage, who told me I needed to contact American.

(sigh)

As calmly as I could, I reiterated that I started there, and then the BA agent suggested I visit a particular website and complete a form (similar to the one I did for Norbert I assume) to get my “file reference”. After making sure I had the right URL I ended the call and started the process.

I hit the first snag when trying to enter in my tag number. As you can see from the screenshot above, my tag number starts with “600” and is ten digits long. The website expected a tag number that started with “BA” followed by six digits, so my AA tag was not going to work.

BA Tracking Website - wrong number

But at least this website had a different number to call, so I called it and explained my situation once again. This agent told me that I should have a different tag number, and after looking around my ticket I did find one in the format they were after, except starting with “AA” instead of “BA”. Of course, when I entered that in I got an error.

BA Tracking Website - error

After I explained that to the agent I remained on the phone for about 30 minutes until he was able to, finally, give me a file reference number. At this point I was very tired, so I wrote it down and figured I would call it a night and go to sleep.

But I couldn’t sleep, so I tried to enter that number into the BA delayed bag website. It said it was invalid.

(sigh)

Then I got a hint of inspiration and decided to enter in my first name as my last, and voila! I had a missing bag record.

BA Tracking Website - missing bag

That site said they had found my bag (the agent on the phone had told me it was being “traced”) and it also asked me to enter in some more information about it, such as the brand of the manufacturer.

BA Tracking Website - information required

Of course when I tried to do that, I got an error.

BA Tracking Website - system error

Way to go there, British Airways.

Anyway, at that point I could sleep. As I write this the next morning nothing has been updated since 18:31 last night, but I hold out hope that my bag will arrive today. I travel a lot so I have a change a clothes with me along with all the toiletries I need to not offend the other conference attendees (well, at least with my hygiene), but I can’t help but be soured on the whole experience.

This year I have spent nearly US$20,000 with American Airlines (they track that for me on their website). I paid them for this ticket and they really could have been more helpful instead of just washing their hands and pointing their fingers at BA. British Airways used to be one of the best airlines on the planet, but lately they seemed to have turned into Ryanair but without that airline’s level of service. The security breach that exposed the personal information of their customers, stories like this recent issue with a flight from Orlando, and my own experience this trip have really put me off flying them ever again.

Just a hint BA – from a customer service perspective – when it comes to finding a missing bag all we really want (well, besides the bag) is for someone to tell us they know where it is and when we can expect to get it. The fact that I had to spend several hours after a long trip to get something approximating that information is a failure on your part, and you will lose some if not all of my future business because of it.

I also made the decision to further curtail my travel in 2019, because frankly I’m getting too old for this crap.

So, I’m now off to shower and to get into my last set of clean clothes. Here’s hoping my bag arrives today so I can relax and enjoy the magic that is the OSMC.

          Lawsuit Claims Trump Administration Detains Immigrant Kids for Too Long       Cache   Translate Page      

A federal lawsuit filed in New York on Tuesday night claims the Trump administration is taking too long to release immigrant kids in detention, putting them at psychological risk.

The plaintiffs include six teenagers, four of them in New York, plus their relatives. The teens are unaccompanied minors who were placed in shelters or foster care facilities after they crossed the southern border. They're supposed to be released to parents or other relatives here in the U.S. while their cases proceed in the immigration courts.

But attorney Paige Austin of the New York Civil Liberties Union said their release is taking too long because the government now requires fingerprints of all adults including parents.

"All six of these kids are sitting in custody months after they were detained because the simple process of getting back a fingerprint-based background check is stretching for weeks and sometimes months," she said.

The lawsuit says children in longterm detention through the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), which runs shelters for unaccompanied minors, suffer anxiety, a sense of helplessness, depression suicidal ideation and even suicidal attempts. It also says these mental health effects are "worsened by the fact most children ORR detains have survived trauma - such as persecution, assault, or torture - in their home countries, and prolonged incarceration exacerbates those injuries."

The number of children in federal custody has spiked to about 13,000 since the government began requiring more rigorous background checks last spring. The NYCLU is seeking class action status to speed the release of all children in detention to parents and other relatives.

The government has claimed the background checks are necessary to prevent children from winding up in the hands of traffickers. But Austin said children must be released from detention as soon as possible under the Flores Settlement, and she claimed their due process rights are being violated. She also noted that the adults' fingerprints can be shared with the Department of Homeland Security, scaring off undocumented relatives from stepping forward to sponsor the children.

The NYCLU won two similar individual cases including one last month in which a Honduran mother was reunited with her 14 year-old daughter after a federal judge found the background check was taking too long.

The plaintiffs in the new lawsuit include four teenagers who are in federal custody at Children's Village in Dobbs Ferry and Cayuga Centers in Manhattan, a boy detained in California and a 17-year-old girl in a Southwest Keys shelter in Brownsville, Texas.

That girl's mother, Norma Duchitanga, is also a plaintiff along with the parents and relatives of the other children.

Duchitanga lives in Rockland County, New York and said she left Ecuador for a better life 15 years ago. Her two older children remained in Ecuador. But she said her teenage daughter had to leave after she could no longer live with her grandmother. She said the girl was detained in Texas on Oct. 2.

"The appointments for the fingerprinting was very delayed," she said, in Spanish. "It was going to take one or two months to get an appointment here in New York.”

Duchitanga said she eventually went to Philadelphia to have her fingerprints checked because the waiting time was shorter there. But it will be another month or more before the background check is completed. She speaks to her daughter twice a week by phone but she worries about her constantly.

"She’s with fear that they’re going to send her back," she explained. "She is afraid they’re going to put her in jail. And that’s her fear. And I don’t want her to suffer. She’s already suffered since I came, and abandoned her to give her a better life."

She's also afraid of what will happen when her daughter turns 18 in December, at which point the government can place her in an adult detention center instead of a shelter for minors. Adult detention centers run by Immigration and Customs Enforcement are usually in county jails. 

"I hope that the lawsuit can help not just my daughter but the other children so they can be with us," said Duchitanga.

The ACLU and the National Center for Youth Law are also representing the plaintiffs with attorneys from Morrison & Foerster in New York.

The Office of Refugee Resettlement, which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services, did not have an immediate reaction to the lawsuit.

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.

  • 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. 

          The Minneapolis Symphony and the Minnesota Orchestra      Cache   Translate Page      
At the dawn of the 20th century Teddy Roosevelt was president and America was in an upbeat, prosperous mood. Cultural affairs were not forgotten, either. To the already established American symphony orchestras in cities like New York, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati and San Francisco, new ensembles would spring up in Philadelphia, St. Louis, Cleveland, and Seattle. On today’s date in 1903, it was Minneapolis’ turn. On November 5th that year, a German-born musician named Emil Oberhoffer led the first concert of the newly formed Minneapolis Symphony. In those days it was a 50-piece ensemble, but in the course of the next 100 years, would double in size and change its name to the “Minnesota” Orchestra. As this is the COMPOSERS Datebook, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that the Minnesota Orchestra has enjoyed a special relationship with a number of leading American composers. Aaron Copland conducted the orchestra on a memorable and televised Bicentennial Concert in 1976, and the orchestra has given the premiere performances of works by Charles Ives, John Adams, and Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, among others. Two young American composers, Stephen Paulus and Libby Larsen, served as composers-in-residence with the orchestra in the 1980s, and more recently, Aaron Jay Kernis served as the orchestra’s new music advisor. Another long-time Minnesota resident, Dominick Argento, was appointed the orchestra’s composer emeritus. Argento’s “A Ring of Time” was premiered by the orchestra in 1972 as part of their 70th anniversary celebration.

          Suuf in Senegal      Cache   Translate Page      
I live in the U.S. Recently, I returned from a visit to Senegal, my third. I no longer stay in Dakar but in locations elsewhere.

Years ago, in Philadelphia, I met a man from Dakar, Abe, who would later allow me to accompany him home. It would be my first trip to Africa.

We stayed in Dakar for a week when he said he had to make a trip home. This meant to his birthplace in a small village very southeast in Senegal. I asked to go and, after great consideration, he said yes. We went by car, bus, car again, and many times on foot, for four days, arriving in his home village, deep in south east Senegal.

In the U.S., Abe rountinely had sex with me. We were about the same age, in our 40s. Abe was 100% total top, and I accomodated him as often as he would let me. While considering myself very much a versatile top, I learned first hand the seduction of hearing an elder African accent pouring out the words "I want to f*** you".

But in Senegal, he would not even discuss it. I understood. I'm causcasian. It's Africa. While at his home, his father and his father's brother, men of 70+ years of age, took me into a small home where, to be blunt, promptly undressed and asked me to bathe them. The broken english was so bad, had they not been naked and rubbing each other out I would not have known what they were saying. I later learned they mistakingly thought I was a servant of Abe's. Once they were confident I got the idea of why I was there, as I performed my chores, they began to talk to each other in Wolof as though I was invisible. Sure, I was very nervous, but no one ever had to tell me what elder meant in Africa.

The next day, I was asked if I wanted to visit a nearby National Park and was told that, where we would be going, we would have to stay overnight, in make-shift tents. We would have to stay just outside the Park. I said sure, and Abe helped me simplify my packing. Abe did not travel with us as I am left to the safety of totally strange men. As I find out 1 hour into the walk, men who do not speak english. And this is a really, really big park.

At this time of year it was very dry, and hot, but at night, it would get somewhat agreeable around 2-5am. The night sky would be so crystal clear it was like you could touch it. You would never know there were so many adult African men. From total strangers walking by, speaking only to others in passing, to men camped in small groups. The night air is what cools them, what frees them to think. And they so do like to walk.

After visiting the Park, the last night in the tents, we had a little too much to drink, and several of the men, in Wolof, said they must walk. One thing led to another and I ended up following them ... at 3am.

We walked for sometime, until I realized I could no longer see them, and soon came upon a small camp, no tents, but with a fire that had just been put out, and was still smoldering. As I looked around into the darkenss, I could hear through my dizzyness from the drink, what I thought were giggles, and whispering.

I walked into the woods. My chest began to pound uncontrollably but I could not turn around. Where would I turn to? For a moment, I thought, no one in the world knows exactly where I am at this very moment, and just as I thought how entoxicating and freeing that is, the thought of Abe not knowing where I am shook me.

As the whispering turned into chanting, singing, I came onto a small clearing, around 30 yards in diameter. It was probably just me, but the moon was so bright, it was like the area was lit up like a room. I literally could not see to the other side of the clearing.

But there stood, before me, two very large men, both at least 250 lbs, basically doing what amounted to a slow motioned coregraphed wrestling match. They were surrounded by the men I had followed, some I saw while walking, and several others, all told about 15-18 men. They were all naked. Except for the two wrestlers, none were younger than me.

Eventually I got the nerve to not try to hide in the small bush I found myself in, when I felt both my arms go limp. I'm talking numb. I was led into the circle, and undressed. I felt sure I was about to faint. The feeling was constant. The chanting became a rhythmic rain eventually blurring me into subconsciousness.

Soon, I was startled by this seemingly disturbing argument between one of the wrestlers and an older man, perhaps in his 60s. I was quickly taken back into the woods and kept there for what seemed like forever, but probably about 20-30 minutes. Each time the voices grew loud and aggressive, I would be petted and held more closely. The scent of African sweat only made me more drunk. Several times I felt myself falling to my knees wanting to orally please anything that came about. I was constantly being held up. As best I remember, that's all that happened in the wooded areas.

Then the most strange thing that has ever happened to me in my life occured. All the men around me slowly walked away, one by one, until all I could see was the well lit area near me. Feeling my vision closing in on me ever so subtly, I walked out of the woods into the clearing.

The wrestler, now completely alone, motioned me to him. As I got close I fainted. When I awoke I was being kissed and caressed. He would not stop looking at my eyes. Every time I went to close them, he would get upset. I could not understand anything he said, most the times he wasn't talking to me anyway, but I understood clearly he wanted my eyes open.

In the end, he had his way with me to completion. He made sure of it. But to say this event was only sexual would be a lasting flaw in my character. He dressed me, walked me for awhile, once I noticed he had disappeared, soon others came about, smiling, waving, pointing the direction for me. No more giggling, no more whispering, no more arguing.

What happen to me that night changed my life.

Two days later, on our way back to Dakar, while resting, I asked Abe, who I thought knew nothing about what had happened, would he ever want me to talk about what I did in Africa. He only shook his head. About three days out we are in another National Park, and while being entertained, a white European couple now living in Cape Verde, makes a point of cautioning the other 'tourists' about wandering near National Parks late at night without escort.

I never felt so un-tourist in all my life.

http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

Quote: "President Donald Trump says he's hoping a supporter will be fine after a medical incident at his final rally ahead of Tuesday's midterm election. Trump paused his stump speech for roughly five minutes after being alerted to a medical emergency in the crowd of thousands."

Quote: "He is in the Mississippi River town to tout Missouri's Republican attorney general, Josh Hawley, who is challenging Democratic incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill."

Note: President Oblivious has no clue what's going on, even as the Earth stalks him (and everyone else). A Secret Service agent, man, 42, stroked out in July at Trump's Turnberry Resort golf course on the coast in Scotland. A White House staffer had a seizure in late August at the White House. A person had a 'medical incident' on a park bench right outside the White House. Other people have had 'medical events' at rallies. A yacht burst into flame right outside Trump Tower in Chicago. At least three different fires have burned Trump Towers, two of the fires in coastal Manhattan, one of those with a fatality. The First Lady's plane came down smoking in October in Maryland, not quite three weeks ago. Think Trump will catch on to what's happening before the Earth expunges him or his sons or his daughter or his wife? Extremely doubtful...
