          Why Not Vote? Anarchists and Libertarians Weigh In      Cache   Translate Page      
Conscientious non-voters have many reasons for not voting. Don't listen to them. by Katie Herzog

You'd think after nearly 250 years we'd have this voting thing down by now, yet all across the country Americans are once again marking Election Day by waiting in long-ass lines. (Except, that is, for the three enlightened states that have adopted vote-by-mail, which, coincidentally, were also the first three states to legalize weed.)

Voter participation is expected to be record high this week, but voting rates in the U.S. are still abysmally low compared to many countries. Australia, where voting is mandatory, ranks at the top of the heap, followed by Malta, Chile, Belgium, Italy, and Luxembourg, all of which have a voter turnout of over 90 percent. On the lower end, you have Russia, Switzerland, Pakistan, and the United States, where, on a good year, only around 60 percent of eligible voters show up. Why doesn’t nearly half the popular vote? I suspect it's because most people just don't give a shit and their stories are on. If you asked this apathetic portion of the populace who the Attorney General is, I’m guessing they'd say, "What army?" But there's also a population of people who do give a fuck but who still opt not to participate in this particular part of the civic process: conscientious non-voters.

For some conscientious non-voters, it all comes down to who's running. A 53-year-old home-builder who is primarily concerned about government spending (and who benefits from it) told me that he will "vote again when we have a viable third party that values freedom for all, not just the ones whose ideas they favor but especially for those who have ideas they despise." He will not, he added, "vote again until I see politicians that understand and prioritize spending within our means."

I also spoke with a 28-year-old conservative who told me that he was so disappointed in Obama's victories in 2008 and 2012 that the prospect of getting invested and losing again just isn't worth it. Another non-voter, an anarchist and philosophy PhD student, said that voting is damaging because it allows people to "focus on policy and what people in power do instead of what they can do themselves." When I asked what the public should do about policies they disagree with—for example, separating and imprisoning immigrant families—he advocated for direct action like assisting immigrants at border crossings instead. "Voting does matter in the aggregate," he said, "but it doesn't matter if you are talking about the individual.”

This point—that individual votes don't matter—is also made by Katherine Mangu-Ward, the editor-in-chief of Reason, the libertarian magazine based in Washington, D.C. For her, it all comes down to numbers. "You are very, very, very, very, very, very unlikely to be a decisive vote," Katherine said. "Your vote turning the outcome of an election is vanishingly rare, whereas, there are all kinds of things you can do with the hour or two hours of your time that it takes you to vote that are objectively, clearly good."

When I asked Katherine if voting took less time—if she could, say, vote-by-mail, which takes about as much time as walking to your mailbox—she would still feel it’s a waste of time, she said that there are other, more affirmative arguments against voting. "If you think the system is basically corrupt or broken, I think there's a very strong case to make that you actually have a duty not to vote."

On that, we disagree. Democracy isn't inherently corrupt. It's corrupt when the people running it are corrupt, and one of the only means of swaying who is steering the ship is to show up and vote. Sure, your individual vote might not change the outcome of an election, but as Kant would argue, if everyone failed to vote, the system itself would fail. For some non-voters (for instance, the anarchist philosophy student), that may be the goal, but Katherine says she's not in favor of the collapse of the system as we know it. Rather, she prefers to participate in the system in other ways, including calling her elected representatives.

Still, I'm not convinced. Sure, calling your representative is one way to be heard, but if your representative is, say, a rabid, God-fearing, conservative who thinks non-Christians should burn on Earth and will burn in hell, he's probably not going to listen when you call up and demand he vote in favor of access to abortion. Same if you're represented by a member of the DSA and you've got a complaint about tax rates on the rich. So what can you, as an individual, actually do? Show up to vote. Your particular vote might not change the election, but the collective vote does, and the collective is just a bunch of individuals taking action.

Now, I understand why people don't trust the system. Just look at recent history, namely the 2000 and 2016 presidential elections, both of which were ultimately won by the person who got fewer votes. But the only way to correct the system is to elect candidates who will at least try and fix it—and right now, there's only one party in the running that is even remotely interested in that. The other side is busy starting trade wars and locking up children. When the stakes are this high, when the chance to curb Donald Trump comes down to our ballots, I don’t see how not voting can be morally justified—unless, that is, you vote Republican. In that case: Listen to Katherine.

          Reckoning with David Bowie’s Rough Patch: Loving the Alien (1983-1988)      Cache   Translate Page      
by Ned Lannamann
LTA_PR.png

It’s become a yearly tradition: A massive David Bowie box has been released every fall since 2015, the first appearing a few months before his death in January 2016. Each one has comprehensively covered excerpts of his long career, and 2018’s installment tackles perhaps the most controversial period of all: Bowie’s glossy ’80s records, when the arty chameleon leapt into the mainstream pop world, no longer setting trends but following them, and embracing the sounds of corporate rock/dance music and trendy post-new wave production. Loving the Alien (1983-1988) collects the three albums Bowie recorded for EMI*: 1983’s Let’s Dance, 1984’s Tonight, and 1987’s Never Let Me Down. Joining them in the box are two live albums, Serious Moonlight (Live ’83) and Glass Spider (Live Montreal ’87); a collection of dance remixes fittingly called Dance; a compilation of edits, B-sides, soundtrack songs, live tracks, and further remixes called Re:Call 4; and most intriguingly, a re-do of Never Let Me Down with newly recorded instrumental tracks that were purportedly in line with Bowie’s wishes.

More so than the three previous installments, Loving the Alien (1983-1988) is really only of interest to Bowie fanatics. As popular as the Let’s Dance singles were, this is overall a pretty bad era for Bowie, with nothing as consistently good as any of his albums on RCA, the label he was signed to from 1969 to 1982 and which issued most of his classics, including his glam-rock masterpieces Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane and the “Berlin” trilogy of Low, ”Heroes”, and Lodger. I’d say that across Loving the Alien's 11 CDs or 15 vinyl records is probably a single album’s worth of truly great material, which would include the three big hits from Let’s Dance, the “Absolute Beginners” single, and the remake of Never Let Me Down’s “Time Will Crawl,” which was done in 2008 with Bowie’s involvement and spearheaded the notion of posthumously redoing the whole album after his death.

Fortunately, this iffy era of Bowie-ana is presented in the best possible way on Loving the Alien. Perhaps appropriately for a period that was the most superficial of Bowie's career, the box and its contents are physically gorgeous, with the reprinted album jackets and accompanying hardback book as luxe and A-grade as reissues get. And I have been pleased to discover, or re-discover, that the music—even if it's not up to Bowie’s best standards—is really only in a few instances outright terrible. Because Bowie was never able to fully shake his uniquely wild and wonderful artistic view of the world, his attempts to swim in the mainstream remain at least partially interesting.

Let’s Dance remains a frustrating album, mostly because side one is a pop masterpiece (albeit one that’s very much of its era) while side two... isn’t. This is how many civilians still think of Bowie: blond, besuited, and beaming, with big-beat blockbusters like “Let’s Dance” and “Modern Love.” The great tracks, produced by Nile Rodgers of Chic and finding a solid direction forward for dance music in the ’80s, are still great, and the rest of the album is still peculiarly forgettable. Let’s Dance was one of the biggest hits of Bowie’s career, and it was too-hastily followed up by Tonight, an album largely bereft of new Bowie songs and often thought of as his worst. It’s got a fair share of clunkers, to be certain, including a nauseatingly slick reggae cover of Iggy Pop's “Don’t Look Down” and a diabolic version of the Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows.” But it’s mostly a charmingly throwaway slab of inoffensive pop circa 1984, with chorus'ed guitars, salsa-flavored horns, and pretty good singing from Bowie. There was a rash of retro-styled indie bands in the past few years who were striving in vain for the sounds Tonight casually tosses off. And the Tina Turner duet on the title track, often decried as a mockery of the original "Tonight" from Iggy Pop's heroin-scarred Lust for Life album, is innocently pleasant, an end-of-prom slow dance that's full of a brand of optimism you rarely get from Bowie.

Never Let Me Down was similarly dragged through the mud upon its release, but giving it a fresh listening in 2018, it’s really not as awful as its reputation. There are some abhorrent production choices, to be certain (hey, it was 1987), but Bowie was as quirky and theatrical as he’d been since Scary Monsters, doing weird voices on “Shining Star” and echoing Diamond Dogs' “Future Legend” on the grandiosely wack-ass “Glass Spider,” which is ineffably odd and hilarious. My stance (the correct one) is that Bowie being willfully weird is better than Bowie cynically making chart hits, and Never Let Me Down rewards reexamination.

You don’t really even need to delve into the box set's disappointing 2018 remake, which augments Bowie’s vocals and other elements of the original Never Let Me Down with newly recorded tracks by a collection of Bowie’s latter-day collaborators. It’s an intriguing idea but doesn’t really work, unfortunately. The great 2008 version of “Time Will Crawl” is here, thankfully, and stands head and shoulders above the rest of the redone tracks, which succeed in shaving off some of the more dated sounds of the 1987 album, but also sterilize it significantly. “Zeroes,” resting on a bed of acoustic guitars, works best in its new version, and some string flourishes on other tracks are welcome additions, but this is a weirdly unreflective, bloodless-sounding version of a flawed album, and it just made me appreciate Bowie's original all the more. Maybe, in the end, that's a win.

The live albums both suffer from flattened, distant sound, as if you’re in one of the cheap seats in the vast arenas Bowie played during this era. Glass Spider, documenting a 1987 show, is kinda cringey, too, with rapped dialogue by Bowie and his backup dancers/singers framing some of the songs, perhaps in an attempt to sound contemporary but instead coming off like a D.A.R.E. group lecturing to kids about staying positive. But in keeping with the nature of these Bowie boxes, they're indispensable artifacts of his career.

Meanwhile, sifting through the Dance collection is like reading a bunch of footnotes without the accompanying context, and will be a chore except for the most determined aficionados of ’80s dance music. The album cover they’ve come up with for Dance is genuinely eye-hurty in a way that feels period-appropriate. Lastly, the Re:Call collection of odds ’n’ sods is wildly hit-and-miss, featuring excellent tracks like “Absolute Beginners” (unfortunately appearing here in the slightly more boring full-length version as opposed to the tighter single edit) and “This Is Not America,” alongside the dreadful "Dancing in the Street" with Mick Jagger (which the UK sent to number one, a more shameful deed than Brexit), a bunch of truncated versions of Never Let Me Down tracks, and Bowie’s contributions to the Labyrinth soundtrack, which make for probably the toughest going in the entire set. There was only one good song in that movie (“As the World Falls Down”) and the rest is worse than Tonight. Sorry, '80s kids, but "Magic Dance" is cold trash.

The shortcomings of the actual music on Loving the Alien is inevitable, though: The label, Parlophone/Rhino, has committed to these massive chronological Bowie collections for better or worse, and sooner or later they had to hit the icy patches in Bowie's career. This is really the best version of the box set one could hope for, appealingly presented with lots of photos (Bowie always looked great, even if he didn't sound it) and with the studio albums sounding as good as they ever have, alongside a big chunk of period edits and remixes (although not all, which would simply add to the expense with no real added value; fascinatingly, Never Let Me Down’s “Too Dizzy” is gone altogether in accordance with Bowie’s wishes), plus the pair of live albums covering his big tours during this period. (If Parlophone/Rhino decides to continue the series, Bowie’s dalliance with Tin Machine is up next, so one wonders how they'd tackle that phase, which featured only two studio albums, a live one, and a similar dearth of top-shelf material.) I'll repeat myself and argue that a single-disc distillation of Bowie's '80s period could really be a worthwhile product for casual fans—it's totally doable to make your own on the streaming services, I guess—but for the Bowie-possessed and -obsessed like me, Loving the Alien (1983-1988) is yet another heavy museum piece to strain our shelves. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

*Confusingly, EMI later reissued a big swath of Bowie’s back catalog originally released on RCA. Even more confusingly, this current box is on the Parlophone imprint, which was once famously part of EMI (they released all the Beatles' records) but is now part of Warner Music Group. Don’t attempt to research the ins and outs of this, like I did; it will give you a headache.

          The Anti-Pop Confessionals of Elly Swope      Cache   Translate Page

If you’re a local music fan, you’ve probably witnessed Elly Swope performing with some of Portland’s best bands: Genders, Sunbathe, Loveboys, Kelli Schaefer, Deathlist, and her own solo project, Focus! Focus! But this year Swope ditched that moniker and began to allow the magic of her vulnerable, skewed pop songs to reflect upon herself directly, without the buffer of a pseudonym.

“Running your own solo project is obviously very exhausting when you’re doing your own booking, your own album art, recording everything, and trying to do press and all that on your own,” Swope explains over the phone from a Sunbathe tour stop in Boston. “I’d just gone through some life changes that made me feel like I needed to be the side person for a while, and to just remember that I love playing music, or else I might not go on. Earlier this year, I just felt ready again.”

The result is her stunning debut EP, It Feels the Same Everytime, which is being released this week by NYC tape label Rue Defense. Evidence of Swope’s masterful songwriting can be found throughout the EP, but it’s even more impressive given the fact that, save for guest performers on two tracks, Swope played every instrument herself during the recording process at Destination: Universe, where she works when she’s not on the road.

On murky tracks like “6.8,” crushing imagery finds a stylistically restrained Swope whispering lines like, “I hold my character so well when I feel it coming on/I know you couldn’t tell,” until the song shapeshifts into a riotous fuzz-rock rallying cry: “Don’t tell me how I should feel about it/Don’t act like you never let me down.” The innate catchiness of Swope’s poetic, anti-pop confessionals can camouflage the raw emotional expressions lurking beneath the surface, especially on the anthemic “Idea,” which hints at the aftermath of a hurtful breakup.

“Sometimes when I have a darker song like that or a more emotional song, and I’m writing it after the fact, it feels somewhat hopeful or powerful to play it and write about that kind of thing after I’ve already processed what happened and I feel like I’ve gained my footing again,” Swope says. “Anytime I write a song that’s just completely dark and hits you over the head with that, I feel like I’m faking it.”

Rest assured, there’s no fakery afoot on It Feels the Same Everytime—Swope’s earnestness will demand your undivided attention.

“I ultimately just don’t want to feel like I’m pretending or that I’m trying to do something,” she explains. “I just want it to feel right.”

          Mountain Man Shouted Abortions, IUDs, and Condoms in Seattle, They Play Portland Tonight      Cache   Translate Page      
by Rich Smith
Mountain Man, doing the Lords work.
Mountain Man, doing the Lord's work. Rich Smith

Editor's note: This show review is from our Seattle-based sister paper The Stranger and describes Mountain Man's show last night in Seattle. Mountain Man play the Doug Fir tonight.

Well, okay, the three singers that form the folk group Mountain Man didn't "shout" about their reproductive health so much as they told charming stories about it.

When introducing a song about "deciding maybe not to have a baby," Amelia Meath, who's also the lead singer of Sylvan Esso, said, "I have to get my IUD replaced soon. Hopefully they're still legal." She then launched into a funny story about a gynecologist who referred to her copper IUD as "a little goddess woman who sits in your cervix and says 'no babies,'" holding out both arms to her side as if blocking eggs descending from two giant, invisible fallopian tubes. Another member of the group, Molly Erin Sarle, told an instructive anecdote about a pregnancy scare that involved a call to Planned Parenthood and also to her mother, plus a panic-purchase of a 32-pack of condoms. The band implored the sold-out crowd to vote, rightly suggesting that protections for women's health are on the ballot. They are. They always are. Now vote, damn it.

Judging by the applause and laughter and warm smiles from the pews, the stories were a welcome bit of blasphemy beneath the deconstructed rose window of Saint Mark's Episcopal Cathedral.

(Before I get a bunch of Episcopalians blowing up the comments: according to Pew, the Episcopal church "supports abortion rights with some limits." And Saint Mark's in particular is known as a pretty progressive parish, all things considered.)

But Mountain Man didn't only stop by Seattle to preach (in this case, to the choir). They're also touring the country with a new album, Magic Ship. The sophomore effort dropped in late September, nearly a decade after 2010's Made The Harbor.

The new songs, like the old songs, are portals to a gentle, pastoral world pierced occasionally by memento mori and the pangs of fuckboydom. But the new stuff feels more mature—less about dating and hanging out in the woods, and more about navigating guilt, the real value of adult friendships, and nature's mix of grace and indifference. There's lust, life, death, Fiona Apple covers, and mountains with blueberries in bloom.

Onstage at Saint Mark's, with arms wrapped around each other's waists, the ensemble played with and against that type. In-between three part harmonies, they detailed the tiny drama of a stink bug that had crawled onto their microphone. They also talked about fucking and politics and abortion. That juxtaposition of the contemporary-urban with the backyard-bucolic characterizes their particular brand of Appalachian folk, which comes tinged with witchiness and irreverence. Their harmonies reflect this dynamic, too. Alexandra Sauser-Monnig lays a solid foundation, Meath adds playfulness and sweetness, and Sarle variously spikes the blend with welcomely sour notes and crystalline brightnesses.

Here's a premium example from the latest record:

This one gives you a sense of the kind of sisterhood energy Mountain Man is pumping out:

And in this song from the old album, one of the singers makes the noise a loon makes on a quiet lake, enacting the strangeness of the natural world freaking forth from nothingness. Or something. It sounds good:

Hearing Mountain Man sing is just a pleasant thing to happen in your life, and last night was a welcome hour of solace and comfort and humor the day before one of the most consequential elections in the history of the country—one of those things that reminds you that life isn't just a swirling hell of bad news and disappointment. Portlanders, definitely go to the show tonight and catch up on the 2018 results after.

          Election Day Cannabis Forecast      Cache   Translate Page      
by Josh Jardine

NASTASIC / GETTY IMAGES
I didn't realize it until I woke up this morning, but was anyone else aware there's an election today? It hasn't been much in the news, and the TV commercials have been few and far between, but I did some digging, called a few sources for confirmation, and sure enough, there is an election that you can vote in today! It seems that it's in a few places, and not just Oregon.

(But seriously—please vote. No, really: It's more important than ever and there is no excuse not to. So please, please, please, take the limited amount of effort and time to be a good citizen, recognizing that in other parts of our troubled globe people quite literally die for this right.)

There are four states with cannabis issues on the ballot—two states have recreational cannabis programs to be voted on, and two additional states decide if medical cannabis programs are what they want. How do they look? Thanks for asking!

The website Marijuana Business Daily did a great wrap-up yesterday, and overall the outlook is good. But if the election of 2016 taught me anything, it's that there is no God, and poll numbers can be wrong. So fingers crossed that those who support medical and recreational cannabis show up at the polls.

Michigan—The numbers looks good for their recreational adult-use cannabis program, with recent polls showing approval of 60 percent of voters. For those ages 18 to 29 (AKA the kids who need to get off the lawns), approval is a whopping 86 percent. For those 65 and over who enjoy telling dope-smoking punks to leave said lawns, approval drops to 40 percent.

Missouri—Three measures involving medical cannabis programs qualified for the ballot, with the one receiving the greatest number of votes being the winner. All three measures have more than 60 percent support, so it looks good. You know what else looked great? 2016. VOTE.

North Dakota—It's not looking great for their ballot measure to create an adult-use recreational program. The disparate results from two recent polls have the measure failing by nearly 75 percent, while another had support pegged at 51 percent. Have you ever been to North Dakota? Those people deserve cannabis. And if they do pass it, South Dakota could be next, in which case my dream of opening a dispensary there called "Budlands" can finally come to fruition.

Utah—Sigh. This has been a fascinating journey of ups and downs, and because it's Utah, you can thank the Mormon Church of Latter-Day Saints (COLDS) for that. Initially, the ballot measure for a medical cannabis program was polling high at 77 percent. Then the COLDS weighed in heavily against the measure, which saw support plunge to 51 percent, because special underwear and such. But even if the ballot measure does fail, Utahns (yes, it's a thing) will still have a semblance of an MMJ program. With the input from cannabis advocates, a compromise medical program was designed, and it's better than nothing, but sounds like, well, something designed by the COLDS.

The program will be enacted by the legislature later this month, and looks... interesting. According to Marijuana Business Daily, the compromise measure will:
• "Initially limit the number of dispensaries, called pharmacies, to five statewide, with a licensed pharmacist at each." (A whole five, for the whole state. Nothing someone in pain likes more than a long drive.)
• "Establish a single, state-owned central pharmacy that would supply health departments with MMJ products with certain dosage limits." (Who knows the most about producing top-quality cannabis? The Utah government, that's who!)
• "Permit MMJ to be consumed as a tablet, capsule, concentrated oil, liquid suspension, topical substance, a skin patch, a sublingual pill, a chewable or dissolvable cube, or unprocessed marijuana flower packaged in a blister pack in which each blister contains no more than 1 gram." (One gram really should be enough, right? Any more is just using it to get your jollies, which as we know, is not a COLDS-approved activity.)
• "Ban home cultivation." (Good. The idea of people growing their own plants is an affront to God.)

Marijuana Business Daily continues:

"Marijuana resin or wax could be used in limited circumstances, according to the Deseret News. Chronic pain, which is the most common ailment among MMJ patients, would remain a qualifying medical condition under the agreement. But it’s not clear how MMJ cultivation would be set up. Leaders of the Republican-dominated Legislature say the deal guards against the possibility of broad legalization. Medical marijuana advocates say they’re backing it to avoid continued fighting and uncertainty."
So that's the state of today's pot races. But there's something more important than any single ballot measure and it's this:

Please vote today. Help someone else vote if they need assistance. Offer to drop off a busy single parent's ballot, or any neighbors/friends with mobility issues. Just make your voice heard—it's crucial.

          Breeder is a Bad Word, Asshole      Cache   Translate Page      
by Anonymous

While sitting in a café, I nearly spit out my coffee as I read I, Anonymous “Breeder Eaters” from last week’s Mercury. If you don’t want others to use such vile words as “barren wasteland,” “hag,” “old maid,” “impotent” or "just plain useless" then keep your fucking disgusting comments to yourself and stop using the offensive terminology of “breeder.” You have resorted to defining this feminist solely by my reproductive abilities—and since we have deduced everyone to sheer biology, you can go fuck yourself.
How dare you. How dare you assume that people entering a business with infants or children are just being selfish to ask for seating. Have you taken on the notion that the children might not be their own? No, I’m sure you haven’t as you sip on your latte and peer over your black hipster glasses reading Kant and trying to look smart. Next time you go to your clinic to get your junk checked out because it burns when you pee, look up. You might see this breeder mom inspecting your business and silently judging you. Hopefully, you will die before my kid has to care for your old ass in a nursing home.

          Good Morning, News: Wheeler's Protest Ordinance Considered, Aliens Are (Maybe) Real, and Go Vote!      Cache   Translate Page      
by Blair Stenvick

Stay up to date on Portland news and politics. Looking for fun? Here are the best Things to Do in Portland today.

MAIA BOAKYE

Happy Election Day! Procrastinators: you still have until 8 pm to turn in your ballot; here are our endorsements. If 2016 left you too vulnerable to watch election results alone, check out our list of election watch parties.

The Final Countdown: Kate Brown and Knute Buehler traversed the state yesterday for one final day of campaigning in the closest governor’s race Oregon has seen in decades. The Cook Political Report is officially calling this race a toss-up, so what happens tonight is anyone’s guess.

Out-Foxed: Trump loves a rally, and last night he brought his friends with him. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Jeanine Pirro all joined him onstage last night to rev up the crowd in Missouri before the midterms. “All those people in the back are fake news,” Hannity told the MAGA mob. Cool.

Speaking of Racists and Fox News: CNN, NBC, Facebook, and even Fox News refused to air a Trump campaign ad for being too obviously racist. The 30-second ad “featured courtroom video of a Mexican citizen convicted in the 2014 killings of two police officers, juxtaposed with scenes of a US-bound caravan of Central American migrants and refugees.”

Last in the Nation: If Louisiana votes yes on its Proposition 2 today, Oregon will be the only state left in the country where you could be convicted of a felony without a unanimous jury.

Methinks He Doth Protest Too Much: The Portland City Council will consider Mayor Ted Wheeler’s proposed new protest ordinance at a Thursday meeting. The ordinance would give the Police Commissioner “the authority to restrict where groups who have clashed in the past may gather and demonstrate.”

The ordinance has faced harsh criticism from many, including the ACLU of Oregon, for being unconstitutional. That has kept Wheeler busy defending it on Twitter:

First Grifter: Chinese regulators granted Ivanka Trump approval for 16 trademark applications. The trademarks will give her a presence in a wide range of Chinese markets, including “senior homes and lightning diffusing machines; for batteries, wedding gowns and sausage casings” – and also voting machines.

HARVARD WANTS TO BELIEVE: Researchers at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics think that aliens might have tried to visit Earth last year in a cigar-shaped spacecraft. They have nicknamed the object “Oumuamua,” which translates to “a messenger that reaches out from the distant past" in Hawaiian.


Our new alien overlords might soon render democracy obsolete—but until that happens, get out there and vote!

          Kiva.org: Senior Product Designer      Cache   Translate Page      

Full-time

(San Francisco, CA)

About us

Kiva (www.kiva.org) is an innovative non-profit focused on connecting people through lending to alleviate poverty and create opportunity. We run a global marketplace platform for crowdfunded microloans that serves the financially excluded. Our organization combines the culture and technological passion of an internet start-up with the compassion and empathy of a non-profit to address poverty at global scale. We aim to drive social impact and enable opportunity while providing a borrower-to-lender connection: “Loans that change lives.” In just 13 years, we have raised more than $1.1 billion in loan capital for 2.7 million borrowers in 83 countries. Our lenders fund over $10 million in loans every month. With offices in San Francisco, Portland, New York, Nairobi, and Bangkok, Kiva's team includes 100+ employees and 400+ volunteers worldwide.

About this role

At Kiva, we’re broadening our focus and building new products that will create economic opportunity and expand financial inclusion across the globe. We recognize the importance of strong design in driving the success of these new initiatives, and are investing in a skilled team that will have a high degree of ownership around Kiva’s future impact.

As a Senior Product Designer, you will be involved in all aspects of the product development process—from brainstorming the next big idea, to creating the vision for new features, to tweaking pixels right before launch. We’re looking for someone who can pitch in on a wide range of design issues—product, user experience, interaction, visual, copywriting, illustration, storytelling—whatever it takes to ship the ultimate user experience to the people we want to reach. You’ll thrive in this role if you are constantly curious, think deeply, speak clearly, and embrace collaboration and feedback.

This is a full-time position located in either San Francisco, CA or Portland, OR. At this time, we can only consider applicants with authorization to work in the United States on a permanent, full-time basis; unfortunately we cannot provide visa sponsorship.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Partner with product managers, engineers, and other stakeholders to design user experiences from conception to launch.
  • Participate in concept development and design ideation with product managers and designers to define product direction.
  • Lead and participate in cross-functional brainstorms, discussions, and design reviews.
  • Prototype and present ideas ranging from rough whiteboard sketches to wireframes to high-fidelity interactive prototypes.
  • Partner with engineering to ensure a high-quality implementation and user experience.
  • Lead broader design initiatives, such as improving or extending the design system or product development practices.

What we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years experience designing best-of-class digital products—consumer products, nonprofit, and/or financial services—ideally in-house.
  • Experience across the full product development spectrum: from ideation and strategy to implementation (with pixel level detail). You’ve gotta be able to fly high and fly low.
  • Demonstrated ability to build successful relationships across design, engineering, product, and marketing.
  • Strong customer focus: ability to conduct user research and translate insights from customer interviews, usability tests and site metrics into actionable design solutions.
  • Excellent verbal, written, and visual communication skills; willing to provide and receive constructive feedback as a part of the creative process.

What we offer:

  • An amazing mission: Kiva’s mission is to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty across the globe
  • An opportunity to improve real lives, solve hard problems, and change the world
  • Friendly, supportive, and adventurous environment with a team of engaged colleagues
  • Casual, but high performing work environment
  • A comprehensive, industry-leading benefits package
  • Opportunities to connect with and learn from colleagues and partners around the world

A diverse and inclusive workplace where we learn from each other is an integral part of Kiva's culture. We actively welcome people of different backgrounds, experiences, abilities and perspectives. We are an equal opportunity employer and a great place to work. Join us and help us achieve our mission!

We will only accept applications directly from candidates. Kiva will not be responsible for any recruiting agency fees, absent a formal agreement.

Breeder is pretty tame when compared to racial slurs people have to live with on a daily basis and as you so eloquently stated, not everyone in the company of children is a breeder. Though, technically, almost all people, regardless of anything other than fertility problems are technically able to procreate.

Since whether or not you are a breeder cannot be determined by your appearance (unless perhaps you are breastfeeding a child or said child or children refer to you as "mommy" or "daddy" or some other similar nomenclature), is breeder really a bad word?

          Let’s make elections about the issues, not “spoiler” hacks      Cache   Translate Page      

On the eve of the 2018 midterm elections, the issue of “spoilers” and third-party and independent candidates is front and center in several of most high-profile elections, even as Maine is showcasing the best solution: ranked choice voting.

President Donald Trump brought attention to how the major parties can manipulate voters through use and abuse of the role of third-party candidates. On Saturday, the president tweeted that allies of incumbent Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly have been seeking to elevate the Libertarian Party candidate as more conservative than the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate:

Rumor has it that Senator Joe Donnelly of Indiana is paying for Facebook ads for his so-called opponent on the libertarian ticket. Donnelly is trying to steal the election? Isn’t that what Russia did!?

The Indiana Democratic Party indeed has issued ads that compare Republican Mike Braun and Libertarian nominee Lucy Brenton - not because they want Brenton to win, of course, but because they know that conservative votes for Brenton are votes not being cast for Braun.

Both parties engage in such tactics regularly, with controversies this year including the staff of a Republican congressman in Virginia collecting fraudulent signatures in an effort to help a former Democratic congressional nominee get on the ballot as an an independent. As Trump points out, Russian hackers of our elections in 2016 engaged in the same tactic in the presidential race, which former Republican congressman John Porter and I explained in an op-ed earlier this year.

More generally, third parties and independents are under attack across the nation for “spoiling” elections, as detailed last month by FairVote intern Ryan Joy. Notably, the past month has seen a run of prominent independents and third parties dropping out to avoid dividing a potential majority vote. Dropouts include the incumbent independent governor of Alaska Bill Walker and candidates running in major statewide races in Arizona, Maine, Oregon and - at least for one day - Michigan. In Georgia, votes for Libertarian nominees in elections for governor and secretary of state may trigger a December runoff election, as Georgia seeks to uphold majority rule.

Congressman Porter and I turn to a better way to secure our elections and put voters first:  ranked choice voting (RCV). Already used in 11 cities, with five additional cities recently enacting it for their next elections, RCV is being showcased this year in Maine in multi-candidate races for U.S. Senate and U.S. House for the first time in American history. Grounded in the editors’ experience with RCV in mayoral elections in Portland and the statewide primaries in June, this editorial in the Maine’s largest paper, The Portland Press Herald, about the withdrawal of independent gubernatorial candidate Alan Caron makes a compelling contrast between our usual single-choice, “top-of-the-heap” plurality system with ranked choice voting:

Caron came into the race with decades looking at Maine’s economic history and formulating ideas about what could make it grow now. But for most of the race, the first question he was asked was how he would navigate the spoiler question….. How different would this race have been if ranked-choice voting had been in play? Instead of asking him to drop out, people might have asked him about his plan to make the state energy independent by 2030, or two free years of higher ed for students who live in Maine for 10 years. Instead of focusing on how to prevent the worst possible outcome from the election, voters could have thought about what the best outcome could look like. That doesn’t mean that candidates like Caron would win, but they would at least have a chance to make their case.

Next Tuesday, Mainers will be able to compare the two voting systems. They will be able to rank preferences in the multi-candidate races for U.S. Senate and Congress but not in the three-way race for governor. Any of them who did not fill out a ranked-choice ballot in the June primary will get a chance to decide what’s more confusing: Marking a ballot that indicates a first and second choice, or trying to handicap a multi-candidate race, figuring out who’s a legitimate contender and who’s a spoiler.

In his news conference Monday, Caron said that he would work to pass a constitutional amendment to permit ranked-choice voting in state races. That remains the best way to address this problem.

FairVote’s senior fellow David Daley foreshadowed this editorial in his recent excellent analysis for the journal Democracy:

“[Ranked choice voting] is not a partisan reform. There will be times when it might help Democrats, or aid Republicans, or boost independents. This is a reform for voters, and a reform that incentivizes politicians to campaign and govern beyond their bases. RCV is the most significant reform we could enact to give voters more meaningful choices and ensure winners with true majority support. Candidates shouldn’t be dropping out, and offering voters fewer choices, just when most voters are beginning to pay attention. Likewise, there’s no need for voters to spend late October obsessing with polls and fretting a spoiler vote, or having to return a second time to the polls in November. The solution is as easy as 1, 2, 3.”

Let’s do what’s best for voters - and best for upholding the integrity of our elections - and avoiding electoral tactics based on undercutting representative democracy. Let’s enact ranked choice voting across our federal and state elections.

It's the night we've been begging for and dreading: THE MIDTERM ELECTIONS. And the ever-ready Mercury Election Strike Force™ is hitting the city to cover the night's results, attend the election night parties, and eat ALL the canapés!

Tonight's hottest topics: Kate vs. the Goatee, a back door abortion ban attempt, the fate of Oregon's sanctuary law, a tri-county housing bond, and a city council battle royale between Jo Ann Hardesty and Loretta Smith.

In this rolling post, you'll be enjoying on-the-spot reporting and lots of local color from Mercury Strike Force members Alex Zielinski, Blair Stenvick, Suzette Smith, Bri Brey, photog Meg Nanna, and yours truly, Wm. Steven Humphrey. So stand by, buckle up, and let's see how you voters voted! The first wave of results drops at 8 pm. THE LATEST UPDATE IS DIRECTLY BELOW, and older entries follow. May God (or her equivalent) help us all!

Update 7:30 pm:

Before Oregon results start dropping at 8 pm, let's take a quick look at where things are standing nationally. For those just joining us: People are VERY INTERESTED in this election, as exhibited by the 39 million people who voted early or by absentee ballot. As it stands now, Democrats need to flip 23 seats to gain control of Congress, and at this hour that prediction is holding steady. Republicans are expected to hold the Senate, even though Dems only need to gain two seats, while holding on to the 26 they already have. But all of these predictions are guesswork, and we all saw where guesswork got us in 2016. (BOO HOO HOO! MAKE THE BAD MEMORIES GO AWAY!)

Good news so far: Florida passes Amendment 4, which restores voting rights to 1.4 million people with past convictions. Remember Kentucky clerk Kim Davis who refused to issue marriage licenses to gay people? She has been voted out of office. HA HA HA. Meanwhile Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilman Omar of Minnesota have become the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, while beloved New Yorker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest woman to win a House seat. Colorado's Jared Polis is the nation's first openly gay man to become governor. And just as I'm typing this, NBC predicts Democrats will win back the House. BAM! WHAT!

Not so great news: Indiana Democrat Senator Joe Donnely loses his seat to a Republican, and human trash bin Ted Cruz has been predicted as the winner against Beto O'Rourke in Texas, which may sink any chance of the Dems claiming the Senate.

Okay, that's all very interesting, but let's not forget a very important AND ALL TOO OFTEN OVERLOOKED point (especially here in Oregon) made by the awesome Christie Teigen:


Stay tuned for much, much more.

          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."

          Portland Opera To Go Presents THE BARBER OF SEVILLE      Cache   Translate Page      

Portland Opera is thrilled to present a 50-minute, English and Spanish-language version of Rossini's The Barber of Seville as 2018's Portland Opera to Go production. For almost 20 years, Portland Opera to Go has travelled throughout Oregon and SW Washington with an opera adaptation targeted for students. This year, POGO will present nearly 60 performances, in venues including school gyms, libraries, cafeterias, classrooms and community centers.

"I truly believe that Portland Opera to Go is one of the most important things we do at Portland Opera," says General Director Christopher Mattaliano. "I'm thrilled that this production will bring the magic of opera to thousands of audience members, many of whom will be enjoying the live performance of opera for the first time."
In this adaptation of The Barber of Seville, targeted for students in 3rd through 12th grades, Rosina is new in town. Fresh from Spain, she lives with her controlling, suspicious Uncle Bartolo, who is planning to marry her off to one of his rich, elderly friends. But Rosina is in love with Almaviva. She knows he likes her too, but they have a problem - she speaks only Spanish, and he speaks only English. They enlist the help of the brilliant, bilingual Figaro, and hilarious antics ensue.

"Once again Portland Opera was extraordinary," shared an educator from Ontario, Oregon."1,300 children saw the show!! And the children loved it. It never ceases to amaze me how well the children engage... And it does my heart good to see the children enjoy it so much. By allowing the children to interact, you give them a voice."

"POGO is Portland Opera's investment in the future" says Alexis Hamilton, Portland Opera's Manager of Education and Outreach. "We believe that opera is an art form that can have a visceral appeal to everyone-and POGO is a fantastic way to introduce audiences from all walks of life to an art form that some adults find intimidating. If we can share opera with children and they have a good time with it, they bring that memory into adulthood and know that opera is for them too-no matter who they are or where they come from. "

Portland Opera to Go provides engaging, accessible artistic educational programming in elementary and middle schools, focusing on schools with economic and geographic barriers to accessing fine arts experiences. Over 50% of schools visited are Title I and are located in rural communities. To integrate the experience, POGO also provides in-class workshops and a 100+ page teacher's guide, including curriculum connections that highlight clear learning goals and creative activities for students.

The cast of The Barber of Seville features Thomas Cilluffo as Almaviva, Jorge-Phillipe Belonni Rosario as Figaro, Jessica Blau as Rosina, and Sergio Manzo as Dr. Bartolo. The cast is accompanied by Emily Baltzer on piano. Stephen K. Gardner is the Tour Manager, and Portland Opera's General Director, Christopher Mattaliano is the Stage Director.

Portland Opera to Go is generously supported by BNSF Foundation, Carpenter Foundation, EAI Information Systems, Elmer's Restaurants, Kinder Morgan Foundation, NW Natural, PGE Foundation, Rose E. Tucker Charitable Trust, Rutherford Investment Management & Lamb Family Foundation, Schnitzer Steel Industries, The Standard, John and Carol Steele, U.S. Bancorp Foundation, Wells Fargo, The Wheeler Foundation, Winderlea Vineyard & Winery, and Union Bank Foundation.

          Russell Peters Announces DEPORTED WORLD TOUR      Cache   Translate Page      

Global comedy superstar Russell Peters is thrilled to announce his return to Portland for his World Deported Tour at the Keller Auditorium on February 8, 2019. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, November 9 at 10am. The Emmy, Gemini and Peabody award winning comic will perform his unique and sometimes controversial brand of humor home once again. Peters' new show features all new material including plenty of Russell's signature audience interactions.

Russell Peters returns to live touring after taking time off to film his smash hit CTV/Netflix series The Indian Detective. The Indian Detective also stars Anupam Kher (The Big Sick, Silver Linings Playbook), William Shatner (Star Trek), Christina Cole (Suits, Casino Royale) and Mishqah Parthiephal (Keeping Up with the Kandasamys).

Peters can also be seen in the films, The Clapper with Ed Helms, Amanda Seyfried and Tracy Morgan as well as Supercon with Ryan Kwanten and John Malkovich, and Adventures in Public School with Judy Greer.

The Deported World Tour kicked off in Australia and New Zealand in February 2018 and has already travelled to over 29 cities in 20 countries and been seen by over 100,00 fans worldwide. The tour will continue well into 2019 and Peters will then take an extended break from live touring to focus on other ventures and spend more time at home with his daughter.

Listed on the Forbes List as one of the top ten Highest Earning Comics in the U.S. since 2009, Peters has spent the last 29 years building a career to become one of the biggest comics in the world. Thanks to YouTube and his global following, Peters has sold-out arenas from Madison Square Garden to the Sydney Opera House. Peters has also performed for the troops in Afghanistan, Iraq and on the USS Eisenhower and the HMCS Winnipeg, and appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Lopez Tonight, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and on HBO, CNN, MTV, BBC, Showtime and Comedy Central. Peters 2010 memoir, Call Me Russell, was a Globe and Mail number one bestseller in Canada.

Peters is an active philanthropist having donated more than a million dollars over the past several years to various charities from the Brampton Civic Hospital, Gilda's Club, the MS Society of Canada and a scholarship at his old high-school; The Russell Peters North Peel Scholarship, which sends a deserving student to college. The scholarship is now in its ninth year.

i also miss not having to go see doctors, doctors, and more doctors when i have a disease for which there is no treatment and no cure and is slowly and steadily taking everything from me and will until i die or choose to die before it kills me

but please continue to lecture me on how much attention i need and how you and your limited free time are taken up making sure your comments are directed at ME instead of whoever is writing the IA. people on this forum just have to keep focusing on me instead of whatever's been posted by the IA.

O estudo das Rochas em concursos públicos

Conceitos mais importantes cobrados em provas


Mecânica das rochas é a ciência teórica e aplicada do comportamento mecânico das rochas e maciços rochosos; é o ramo da mecânica que estuda a resposta das rochas e maciços rochosos perante os campos de forças a que estão sujeitos no seu ambiente físico.
A mecânica das rochas propriamente dita faz parte do campo mais vasto que é a geomecânica, que se ocupa das respostas mecânicas de todos os materiais geológicos, incluindo os solos. A mecânica das rochas, tal como é aplicada na prática da engenharia de minas e engenharia geológica, refere-se à aplicação dos princípios da mecânica de engenharia ao desenho de estruturas em rocha geradas pela atividade mineira, como por exemplo, túneis, poços de minas, escavações subterrâneas ou minas a céu aberto. Inclui também o desenho de padrões de ancoragens.

Definição


Rochas são materiais sólidos consolidados, formados naturalmente por agregados de matéria mineral ou minérios, que se apresentam em grandes massas ou fragmentos.

Propriedades

As principais propriedades que distinguem uma rocha de um solo são a coesão interna e a resistência à tração. A coesão interna é a força que liga as partículas umas as outras (ligação entre os átomos). Este valor difere da coesão aparente, que é resultante do atrito entre as partículas quando submetidas às forças de cisalhamento. Exemplo de coesão nula é a areia, mas pode apresentar coesão aparente de 4,34 kg/cm². A resistência à tração pode ser nula num solo. Mas entre o solo e a rocha pode existir uma tração uniaxial de 1MPa.
A rocha, como o solo, é um material bastante distinto de outros materiais da engenharia, por isso os projetos em rochas são bastante especiais. A mecânica das rochas se desenvolveu mais lentamente que a mecânica dos solos, pelo simples fato de a rocha ser considerada mais competente que o solo e gerar menor número de problemas com fundações ou estruturas.
A mecânica, de uma forma geral, estuda a resposta de um material a uma solicitação qualquer. A mecânica das rochas tem como finalidade estudar as propriedades e o comportamento dos maciços rochosos submetidos a tensões ou variações das suas condições iniciais.
As rochas são utilizadas pelo homem para fabricação de armas, ferramentas e utensílios. Este material é muito usado para construção de casas, túneis, fortificações, esculturas entre outros.
As áreas de atuação são classificadas como:
  • Atividades de superfície (<100m aberto.="" barragens="" c="" e="" es="" estradas="" funda="" li="" minas="" u="#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000">
  • Atividades em profundidade (>100m): minas subterrâneas, túneis, cavernas hidrelétricas, aproveitamento de energia geotérmica.
  • Atividades especiais: engenharia do petróleo, engenharia geotécnica, armazenamentos em cavernas(petróleo, água, resíduos radioativos, etc.).

 Os projetos de engenharia de rochas podem ser agrupados em sete categorias, sendo em fundações a sua utilização mais importante.

• fundações: as rochas são um excelente material de fundação, mas podem ser fraturados e alterados. É necessário estabelecer a competência da rocha em relação a sua capacidade de suportar a carga para níveis toleráveis de deformação.
• taludes: a mecânica das rochas pode identificar o risco de ruptura do talude rochoso, seja por tombamento, flexão, em cunha ou em plano;
• túneis e poços: a estabilidade de túneis e poços depende da estrutura da rocha, estado de tensões, regime de fluxo subterrâneo e técnica de construção;
• cavernas: o projeto de construção de grandes cavernas é influenciado pela presença e distribuição das fraturas do maciço rochoso;
• mineração: a mecânica das rochas influi sobre os métodos de mineração, com a finalidade de se obter uma maior extração de minério, utilizando-se um mínimo de suporte artificial das galerias;
• energia geotérmica: a produção de energia geotérmica é obtida pela percolação de água, injetada no furo, através das fraturas da rocha-reservatório naturalmente aquecida e a posterior recuperação por outro furo de sondagem. Este sistema depende da interação entre as fraturas do maciço, tensões in situ, condições de fluxo, temperatura e tempo;
• armazenamento de rejeitos radioativos: o isolamento dos materiais radioativos em relação à biosfera requer o estudo das fraturas do maciço, capacidade de absorção das superfícies das fraturas, tensões in situ, condições de fluxo, temperatura e tempo.
O intemperismo é o processo natural de decomposição ou desintegração de rochas e solos, e seus minerais constituintes, por ação dos efeitos químicos, físicos e biológicos que resultam da sua exposição aos agentes externos (neles se incluindo os fatores antropogênicos, isto é devido directa ou indiretamente à ação humana). Em resumo, a meteorização é o fenomeno natural a que estão sujeitos todos os materiais geológicos quando expostos à ação combinada da atmosfera, da hidrosfera, da biosfera e da antroposfera, ocorrendo de forma permanente e generalizada em toda a superfície terrestre, não devendo contudo ser confundida com os efeitos da erosão, embora tenha frequentemente com eles uma relação estreita de causa e efeito. Em geral, o intemperismo intensifica-se em regiões de climas tropicais, como é o caso do Brasil.
São vários os fatores que influem no intemperismo:
Clima: É o mais importante. É ele que determina a distribuição sazonal das chuvas - fundamentais porque é a água o principal agente transportador dos produtos do intemperismo - e as variações de temperatura, que contribuem para a fragmentação das rochas, através da alternância de períodos de dilatação com períodos de contração. Quanto maior a disponibilidade de água e quanto mais frequente for sua renovação, mais completas serão as reações químicas do intemperismo. Quanto à temperatura, para cada 10 ºC de elevação há um aumento de duas a três vezes na velocidade das reações químicas. Isso explica por que o intemperismo é mais intenso nos trópicos.
Relevo: Determina a maior ou menor velocidade do fluxo da água das chuvas, com consequente menor ou maior infiltração no solo. Em encostas de alta declividade, a água fica pouco tempo em contato com as rochas e assim não consegue promover adequadamente as reações químicas. Nas baixadas, a água fica, ao contrário, bastante tempo em contato, mas não se renova facilmente, de modo que fica saturada nos componentes solúveis e perde sua capacidade de continuar atacando os minerais. Portanto, é nas encostas suaves que o intemperismo é mais intenso.
Rocha-Mãe: Importante porque, dependendo de sua composição mineralógica, textura e estrutura, terá maior ou menor resistência à decomposição e à desagregação. Os primeiros minerais a cristalizar no resfriamento de um magma são os mais instáveis nas condições normais de pressão e temperatura e, assim, são os primeiros a se alterar. Por essa razão, o quartzo é dos mais resistentes e na alteração de um granito, por exemplo, é o último a se decompor. Os mármores, por sua vez, por serem formados de carbonato de cálcio, mineral altamente solúvel em água, alteram-se com muito mais facilidade que os granitos (daí ser o granito muito mais indicado para tampos de pia que o mármore).
Tempo: Quanto maior o tempo de exposição de uma rocha, mais intensa será a ação intempérica sobre ela. Calcula-se que em um milhão de anos o intemperismo rebaixe o relevo de 20 a 50 metros. Na Escandinávia, onde o clima é muito frio, sobre superfícies graníticas expostas há 10 mil anos desenvolveu-se um manto de alteração de apenas poucos milímetros. Em compensação, no Havaí, região muito úmida, no período de apenas um ano desenvolveu-se sobre lavas basálticas recentes uma camada de solo suficiente para uso agrícola.

Fauna e Flora: São fatores de importância menor, mas que atuam fornecendo matéria orgânica para reações químicas e remobilizando materiais. A concentração de CO2 no solo, proveniente da decomposição da matéria orgânica morta, pode ser até 100 vezes maior que na atmosfera. Isso facilita muito a acidificação da água, o que favorece, por exemplo, a dissolução do alumínio. Superfícies rochosas cobertas de liquens são muito mais rapidamente atacadas pelo intemperismo químico que aquelas sem liquens, e raízes de árvores têm grande poder de penetração em fendas de rochas, provocando sua dilatação. Os materiais produzidos pelo intemperismo podem ser transportados para outro local ou permanecerem na posição original. Em qualquer um dos casos, vão gerar um solo, chamado de solo transportado no primeiro caso e de solo residual no segundo.


Tipos de Intemperismo


A ação do intemperismo dá-se através de modificações nas propriedades físicas e químicas dos minerais e rochas. Quando predominam as primeiras, fala-se em intemperismo físico; se predominam as segundas, fala-se em intemperismo químico. Quando há participação de seres vivos e de matéria orgânica, é classificado em físico-biológico ou químico-biológico. São eles: 
Intemperismo Físico
Consiste basicamente na desagregação da rocha, com separação dos grãos minerais que a compõem e fragmentação da massa rochosa original. As variações de temperatura dilatam e contraem o maciço rochoso, gerando fissuras que com o tempo vão se alargando. Os minerais, por sua vez, possuem diferentes coeficientes de dilatação e respondem de maneira diferente a essas variações térmicas, contribuindo também para o fissuramento. Essas mudanças são particularmente acentuadas no ambiente desértico, que tem dias quentes e noites frias. As variações na umidade também provocam o mesmo efeito. E, se a água que se infiltra em fraturas da rocha sofre congelamento, o intemperismo físico é bem mais acentuado, porque ao congelar a água aumenta em 9% o seu volume e exerce grande pressão sobre as paredes da rocha. Quando a água que se infiltra em fraturas e fissuras contém sais dissolvidos (principalmente cloretos, sulfatos e carbonatos) e esses vêm a precipitar, pode igualmente ocorrer um aumento de volume e consequente fragmentação, pois isso causa enorme pressão sobre a rocha. Esse tipo de fragmentação é um dos principais problemas que afetam monumentos feitos com rocha. Seja qual for a causa da fragmentação, ela sempre acaba facilitando a penetração da água e o consequente intemperismo químico da rocha.

Intemperismo Químico
A maior parte das rochas que hoje afloram formou-se em ambiente muito diferente daquele que há na superfície terrestre atual, onde pressão e temperatura são baixas e onde a água e o oxigênio são muito abundantes. Como consequência, os minerais que formam essas rochas estão hoje em desequilíbrio químico e tendem a se transformar em outros, mais estáveis. O principal agente do intemperismo químico é a água, que, absorvendo o CO² da atmosfera, adquire características ácidas. Em contato com a matéria orgânica do solo, essa água fica mais ácida ainda, o que vai facilitar seu trabalho de dissolução de carbonatos e outras substâncias. O intemperismo químico atua através de reações de hidratação, dissolução, hidrólise, acidólise e oxidação. Os feldspatos e as micas são transformados em argilas, permanecendo o quartzo inalterado. A ação da água sobre o feldspato e a biotita leva à produção de argilas, das quais a principal é o caulim.

Intemperismo Biológico
É bem menos importante que os dois tipos anteriores e se dá através da ação de bactérias que decompõem materiais orgânicos. Esse tipo de intemperismo produz os solos mais férteis do mundo, sendo muito comum na Rússia e na Ucrânia.


Classificação das Rochas

As Rochas podem ser classificadas em:
Igneas ou Magmáticas:
As Rochas ígneas, rochas magmáticas ou rochas eruptivas (derivado do latim ignis, que significa fogo) são um dos três principais tipos de rocha. A formação das rochas ígneas vêm do resultado da consolidação devida ao resfriamento do magma derretido ou parcialmente derretido. Elas podem ser formadas com ou sem a cristalização, ou abaixo da superfície como rochas intrusivas (plutônicas) ou próximo à superfície, sendo rochas extrusivas (vulcânicas). O magma pode ser obtido a partir do derretimento parcial de rochas pré-existentes no manto ou na crosta terrestre. Normalmente, o derretimento é provocado por um ou mais dos três processos: o aumento da temperatura, diminuição da pressão ou uma mudança na composição. Ex: granitos, dioritos e basaltos
Metamorficas:
Rochas metamórficas são rochas que resultam da transformação da rocha original, o protólito. Este dá origem a uma rocha metamórfica depois de sofrer transformações químicas e físicas devido ao fato de se submeter a temperaturas e pressões elevadas e à atuação de fluidos em zonas profundas da crosta terrestre, sem que, contudo, cheguem a fundir (a não ser, talvez, parcialmente). O protólito tanto pode ser uma rocha sedimentar, como uma rocha ígnea ou mesmo outra rocha metamórfica.
Podem formar-se, simplesmente, por estarem sujeitas às altas temperaturas existentes muito abaixo da superfície terrestre e à pressão provocada pelo peso das camadas de rocha superiores. Podem também ter origem em processos tectónicos como colisões continentais que provocam pressão horizontal, fricção e deformações. Podem, ainda, formar-se graças ao chamado metamorfismo de contato, quando a rocha, sempre no estado sólido, é aquecida pela intrusão de rocha fundida (magma) proveniente do interior da Terra. Alguns exemplos de rochas metamórficas são o gnaisse, a ardósia,o mármore, o xisto, e o quartzito.

Sedimentares:
As rochas sedimentares são compostas por sedimentos transportados pela água, gelo ou vento e acumulados em depressões na crosta terrestre. Cobrem cerca de 75% da superfície terrestre e 90% dos leitos marinhos e corresponde a 5% do volume da Terra. As rochas sedimentares são importantes fontes de material fóssil. Ex: Calcário, Arenitos e Margas. As rochas sedimentares formam-se por três processos principais:

  • o pela deposição (sedimentação) das partículas originadas pela erosão de outras rochas - rochas sedimentares clásticas ou detríticas;
  • o pela precipitação de substâncias em solução - rochas sedimentares quimiogénicas; e
  • o pela deposição dos materiais de origem biológica - rochas sedimentares biogénicas.

Durabilidade

A durabilidade é a resistência da rocha aos processos de alteração e fragmentação sendo também conhecida por alterabilidade. O contacto da rocha com a água e o ar, muitas vezes através de obras de engenharia civil como escavações e terraplenos, pode ocasionar a degradação das suas características mecânicas. Influenciam a durabilidade: a Compacidade, Porosidade, Permeabilidade, Higroscopicidade, Gelividade, Condutibilidade Térmica.
O ensaio “slake durability test” consiste em submeter material rochoso previamente fragmentado a ciclos normalizados de secagem, humidificação e ação mecânica. Os fragmentos são colocados dentro de redes metálicas cilíndricas com determinada abertura parcialmente imersas na água que rodam em torno de um eixo horizontal. O choque dos fragmentos de rocha entre si e o contato com a água favorecem a sua desagregação e alteração. A secagem dos fragmentos é realizada em estufas após o que pode seguir-se outra humidificação e ação mecânica.


Ensaio com o esclerómetro ou martelo de Schmidt

A resistência à compressão simples das rochas pode ainda ser correlacionada com a sua dureza. A dureza nas rochas é um conceito diferente daquele que é considerado nos minerais. Geralmente é associada com a chamada dureza de Schmidt (R) que é determinada através do ensaio com o martelo de Schmidt. Este valor é depois correlacionado com a resistência à compressão simples da rocha constituinte da superfície ensaiada de acordo com o valor do seu peso volúmico A dureza é uma propriedade mecânica da matéria sólida que determina sua resistência ao risco. No campo da Mineralogia, para quantificar a dureza de um mineral, utiliza-se a Escala de Mohs. Essa escala foi desenvolvida pelo mineralogista alemão Friedrich Mohs no ano de 1812 e é formada por 10 minerais organizados em ordem crescente de dureza. Observe:

Teste de dureza Brinell

O método de teste de dureza Brinell consiste em endentar o material com uma esfera de aço endurecido ou metal duro(carbeto de tungstênio) com 10 mm de diâmetro com uma carga de 3000 kgf. Para materiais mais moles a carga pode ser reduzida para 1500 kg ou 500 k para reduzir endentação excessiva. A carga total é normalmente aplicada por 10 ou 15 segundos no caso de ferro fundido ou aço , e pelo menos durante 30 segundos para outros metais.

O Ensaio de Dureza Vickers consiste em forçar, através da aplicação de uma carga pré-estabelecida, um penetrador de diamante com formato de pirâmide de dimensões conhecidas, sobre a superfície do corpo de prova a ser ensaiado. Este método foi desenvolvido no início da década de 1920 como uma alternativa ao Brinell. Uma das grandes vantagens é que os cálculos da dureza não dependem das dimensões do penetrador. O mesmo penetrador pode ser usado nos ensaios de diversos materiais, independentemente da dureza. Além disso, esta é uma das escalas mais amplas entre as usadas para medição de dureza e pode ser utilizada para todos os metais, com uma grande precisão de medida.
Outra grande vantagem deste método é a pequena impressão deixada, sendo que este procedimento é utilizado em ensaios de micro e nano-dureza, na qual é possível analisar cerâmicas e finíssimas camadas de revestimento. As desvantagens são a necessidade de preparar a amostra previamente e o uso de um microscópio adequado.

Teste de dureza Rockwell

O teste de dureza Rockwell consiste em endentar o material sob teste com um cone de diamante ou endentador de esfera de aço endurecido. O endentador é pressionado contra a superfície do corpo de prova com uma pré-carga F0, usualmente de 10kgf . Quando o equilíbrio é atingido, um dispositivo indicativo que segue os movimentos do endentador e responde às variações da profundidade de penetração é ajustado para a posição zero.
Ainda com a pré-carga aplicada, uma segunda carga é introduzida, aumentando a penetração. Atingido novamente o equilíbrio a carga é removida, mantendo-se a pré-carga. A remoção da carga provoca uma recuperação parcial, reduzindo a profundidade da penetração. O aumento permanente na profundidade da penetração resultante da aplicação e remoção da carga é usado para calcular o valor da dureza Rockwell.

Fratura

Em geologia, uma fratura é uma superfície num volume de rocha onde não se observa deslocamento relativo entre blocos, distinta da falha, que apresenta deslocamento paralelo ao plano da fratura, e da diaclase, onde o deslocamento é perpendicular (afastamento). Trata-se de fendas irregulares em minerais não controladas por sua estrutura cristalina.

Clivagem

Clivagem é a forma como muitos minerais se quebram seguindo planos relacionados com a estrutura atômica interna, paralelos às possíveis faces do cristal que formariam. A clivagem é descrita em cinco modalidades: desde pobre, como na bornite; moderada; boa; perfeita; e proeminente, como nas micas. Os tipos de clivagem são descritos pelo número e direcção dos planos de clivagem.

Principais Rochas empregadas na construção civil


Granito

Características:
  • Rocha ígnea de profundidade;
  • Dura de textura cristalina e de grãos finos ou médios;
  • Compõem-se de quartzo, feldspato e mica;
  • Comum na natureza;
  • Apresenta fratura irregular ou concóide;
  • A cor predominante é dada pelo feldspato, podendo ser rósea, marrom, amarelada, cinza ou azulada;
  • O quartzo dá grânulos brancos ou pretos e a mica lhe dá o brilho;
  • Resistência à compressão é, em média, 150 MPa (1500kgf/cm²); Densidade varia de 2,5 a 3,0;
  • Excelente pedra de construção, desde que não alterado; Resistência mecânica e durabilidade são as maiores dentre as demais pedras de construção;

Usos:
Em calçamentos (resistência ao choque e desgaste), muros de arrimo, alvenarias e pontes em arcos (obras com esforços de compressão); Principal uso: Como agregado para base de pavimentos, concretos de Cimento Portland e asfáltico. Atualmente utilizado como revestimento de pisos e paredes na forma polida (placas).

Calcários

Características:
                 
  • Rocha sedimentar composta por carbonato de cálcio (CaCO3) e pequenas proporções de outras substâncias (óxido de ferro, de magnésio, argila);
  • Predomínio de carbonato de cálcio (CaCO3) são chamados de calcários calcíticos e predomínio de carbonato de magnésio CaMg (CO3) são chamados de calcário dolomíticos ou magnesianos;
  • Calcinação pela ação do calor, liberando gás carbônico. CaCO3 + calor = CaO + CO2
  • Atacadas pelos ácidos, desprendem CO2 com efervescência.
  • Cal, sob a forma de pó seco, obtida pela calcinação a uma temperatura próxima à da fusão de calcário com impurezas sílico-aluminosas, formando silicatos, aluminatos e ferritas de cálcio, que lhe conferem um certo grau de hidraulicidade é chamado de cal hidraulica. Riscadas facilmente pelo canivete (grau 3 na escala de Mohs). Resistência à compressão é de 50 a 150 MPa (500 a 1500kgf/cm²). 
Usos:
Revestimento, produção de aglomerantes (extração da cal e fabricação do cimento) e, em algumas regiões, como agregados.

Basalto

Características:

  • Rocha ígnea de superfície; De cor escura e textura compacta;
  • Constituída à base de feldspato;
  • Resistência à compressão é de 150 MPa (1500kgf/cm²);
  • Composto de silicatos de alumínio e cálcio, de vidro e piroxênio;
  • Tem grande resistência e dureza;
  • Como agregado apresentam duas desvantagens: grande dureza que desgasta os britadores e a forma dos grãos predominantemente lamelares;
  • Exige menos explosivos na exploração das pedreiras, devido ao seu fraturamento natural, fazendo seu custo de produção ser menor que o dos agregados graníticos.

Usos:
Em revestimentos de pisos com grande fluxo de pedestres (placas polidas) e pisos para jardins (forma bruta).


Mármores

Características:

  • Rochas derivadas do metamorfismo do calcário;
  • Tem textura compacta;
  • Resistência à compressão é de 100 MPa (1000kgf/cm²);
  • As impurezas dão a sua coloração;
  • Durabilidade e resistência à abrasão menor que granitos;
  • Representam o último grau de alteração de rochas (paragnaisses) ou provêm do metamorfismo do granito (ortognaisses);
  • Aspecto e características físicas e mecânicas semelhantes a dos granitos;
  • Tem quase os mesmos usos que o granito.

Usos:
Em revestimento interior sob a forma de placas.

          ‘20 under 40’ Class of 2018—Michael A. DeVita III      Cache   Translate Page      
11/06/2018
Spencer Ives

Michael A. DeVita III, 37

General manager, Securadyne Systems

Andover, Mass.

Michael DeVita III initially started in the security industry as a summer job, which led into a greater interest, he said. He started in the industry with Surveillance Specialties 17 years ago, a company that was acquired by Securadyne Systems five years ago.

“After being exposed to the industry for a summer, I took a liking to the physical security world and began to gain an understanding of the technical side of things before making the move to inside sales support. I had the great fortune to work alongside my father (Mike DeVita Jr) in a support role where I learned the nuances of the business. While doing inside sales, I designed systems, built proposals, and eventually managed some key customers before starting my own sales career within Securadyne. I was given the opportunity to work very closely with CEO Carey Boethel during this time and when the opportunity arose I moved into the general manager’s role where I have been since 2013,” DeVita said.

DeVita is the general manager for the Boston and Portland, Maine, branch locations where he oversees sales and operations. Securadyne Systems is an integrator with 17 branches across the United States, servicing enterprise class clients throughout. The company has “regional hubs” in Boston, Atlanta and Dallas, DeVita explained.

When asked what he likes best about being in the security industry, DeVita said, “Creating value for my clients. Security integration is more than just installing cameras and readers. With each interaction, you get the opportunity to solve for the underlying need and look at a holistic approach that sometimes includes technology as well as operational or procedural recommendations. You build relationships and trust with clients based on the long-term approach rather than the singular project.”

          7 Congressional Races That Could Reshape the Country      Cache   Translate Page      

Senator Ted Cruz debates Representative Beto O'Rourke (Photo credit: YouTube)

Happy midterm day! If you haven’t already voted, go and take two friends to the polls with you! Then, keep tabs on the hottest seats in Congress. Here’s the latest on seven key races to pay attention to today:

 

1. Maine’s 2nd Congressional District: Bruce Poliquin vs. Jason Golden

Maine 2nd Cong. District Debate Bruce Poliquin vs Jared Golden vs Bond vs Hoard, Oct 16, 2018

Bruce Poliquin is a Republican incumbent running against veteran Jason Golden. Maine’s second district was a “pivot county” in the 2016 election, which means that it voted primarily for Obama in 2008 and 2012, but flipped Republican in 2016, so this seat might be a predictor for 2020 voting.

 

2. California’s 25th Congressional District: Katie Hill vs. Steve Knight

Steve Knight, Katie Hill Debate For California's 25th Congressional District

Thirty-year-old Katie Hill is making a name for herself as the Democratic nominee for CA25. Hill, executive director of the nonprofit People Assisting the Homeless (PATH), has been endorsed by Moms Demand Action, Barack Obama, and even Kristen Bell. Republican incumbent Steve Knight is the only Republican representing Los Angeles in Congress, and it appears that he very likely could lose that position soon; the forecasted turnout puts Hill slightly in the lead.

3. Senate Race in Missouri: Claire McCaskill vs. Josh Hawley

U.S. Senate debate with Republican Josh Hawley and Democrat Claire McCaskill

Incumbent Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill is going up against Republican Josh Hawley, Missouri’s current attorney general. McCaskill is dealing with a low 37-percent approval rate, but Hawley is also facing challenges of his own: Missouri is still recovering from the resignation of Governor Eric Greitens after sexual misconduct allegations were made against him. Currently, the race is a toss-up, but Democrats need McCaskill to win if the Senate is to be reclaimed.

 

4. Texas’s 23rd Congressional District: Will Hurd vs. Gina Ortiz Jones

Meet the Congressional Candidate Looking to Oust Rep. Hurd

Current Republican Representative Will Hurd is taking on Democrat Gina Ortiz Jones, a queer former Air Force intelligence officer. They’re both vying for a spot in the House in a district with hundreds of miles of land along the border and a significant number of Latinx voters. Jones’s campaign has concentrated on health care, a big concern for Texas voters. Recently, that focus has translated into attacks on Hurd’s support of tax breaks for big pharma, but recent polls have shown Jones is still behind Hurd.

5. Senate Race in Tennessee: Marsha Blackburn vs. Phil Bredesen

2018 U.S. Senate debate between Marsha Blackburn and Phil Bredesen channel

Tennessee’s Senator Bob Corker is retiring, and Republican Marsha Blackburn is running against Democrat Phil Bredesen to take the reins. Blackburn is a strong Trump supporter, has attacked Planned Parenthood, and runs on an anti-choice platform. Although running as a Democrat, Bredesen is curating an image as a moderate, which includes supporting the nomination of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. This race came into the spotlight after Taylor Swift’s public support of Bredesen, but recent polls have shown Blackburn pulling ahead.

 

6. Senate Race in Nevada: Dean Heller vs. Jacky Rosen

U.S. Senate debate between Senator Heller and Congresswoman Rosen

Incumbent Republican Senator Dean Heller is likely to be vulnerable in this election. The senate only needs to gain one or two seats in order to flip, and the Nevada race is being hailed as one that could do just that due to the large Latinx community and increasingly engaged Democratic base. The race is currently a toss-up.

 

7. Senate Race in Texas: Ted Cruz vs. Beto O’Rourke

Ted Cruz and Beto O’Rourke square off in final debate before midterm election

No Democrat has held statewide office in Texas since 1994, and Representative Beto O’Rourke is hoping to change that. Senator Ted Cruz—the infamous Republican incumbent who recently tweeted a joke about being the Zodiac Killer—is still in the lead, but only by a narrow margin. Texas Republicans are worried that the unexpected enthusiasm for a Democratic nominee could lead to a blue wave throughout the state even if O’Rourke isn’t elected.

          Macha Theatre Works Presents The PNW Premiere Of VEILS By Tom Coash      Cache   Translate Page      

Veils is a two-woman show featuring actors Fathiya Ritter and Alaji. The design team includes Parmida Ziaei (set/props designer), Sadiqua Iman (costume designer), Johanna Melamed (sound designer), Suzi Tucker (projection designer), Zanna King (lighting designer), Mike Stephens (tech supervisor), and Madison Silva (stage manager).

About the play: Intisar, a veiled African-American Muslim student, thinks she might finally fit in when she enrolls for a year abroad at the American Egyptian University in Cairo. Samar, her non-veiled Egyptian Muslim roommate, enlists Intisar's help in creating an internet blog about the practice of wearing veils (or not), in hopes of challenging Western assumptions about Muslim culture and bridging the gap between the West and the Middle East. As Egypt hurtles toward revolution, Intisar and Samar are surprised to find themselves on opposite sides of a bitter cultural divide. Will the violent events and emotions leading up to the revolution salvage their friendship or shatter it?

Veils will run November 30-December 16, 2018 at West of Lenin (203 N. 36th Street) in Seattle's Fremont neighborhood.

Summary

No news is good news. 60% of wildlife has been wiped off the planet since 1970. Mexican police kill a man in the migrant caravan on the border with Guatemala. Ever since Trump openly declared himself a nationalist last week, there has been an escalation of far-right violence. We interview an anarchist who works at the Tree of Life synagogue where an anti-Semite massacred 11 people on Saturday, as well as two people in the Outlive Them network about the upcoming International Days of Action against Fascism and Anti-Semitism. We also draw connections between the election of Bolsonaro in Brazil and anarchist resistance to Trump and democracy itself in the United States. Send us news, events, or ideas on how our show can better serve anarchist activity in your town by emailing us at podcast@crimethinc.com.

          Selling My Book Ain't for Sissies      Cache   Translate Page      

If anything, I'm a stubborn sumbitch. Hey I thought a few years ago, I'll write a book of blog posts! What a stroke of genius! The damn thing's already written, I just have to put it all together, and by jingo it'll be easy! Just get it published on Amazon and sell a few zillion copies and I won't have to drive a damn bus 55 hours a week any longer!

Riiiiiggggghhhhhhttttt. Fuhgedaboudit. It was a long, tedious and patience-testing project which was about as "easy" as pulling a rusty nail out of my foot. The editing itself nearly pushed me harder than braking an old bus going downhill. Eventually, the book was published and I had seen it through to completion. That in itself was an accomplishment from one who started building his eight-year-old daughter a dollhouse only to present it to her when she was 17. At least the book only required 18 months to produce, but it also was the catalyst of my first on-top grey hairs. Fuzz budgets.

The book's "success" has been about as lukewarm as the Oregon coast in December. While readers have generously written 30 five-star reviews, the revenue production rivals about 1/20th of minimum wage, or less. Oh well, not a terrible start to a literary career... there have been less glorious debuts.

Now I've produced the audio book version of JUST DRIVE - Life in the Bus Lane. In one month, there have been an unprecedented SIX copies sold! That's just enough for a bottle of middle-shelf Irish whiskey, but it may take about five of them to accomplish an ambitious marketing plan for this new version. I've hired Jess the Audiobookworm to sponsor a "tour" of the book on several reviewer blogs. This is supposed to generate interest in the book, but there's always the chance these full-time reviewers will not look upon my baby with the pride of its author. It's a risk, but I've never backed down from a challenge. If I fail, there's always the next book, and the one after that, followed by more... yadda yadda yadda. Like I said, stubborn is me modus operandi.

My "head shot." Glamorous, eh?
So here I sat for about 20 minutes tonight, reading through the things Jess needs to start the tour. One of these requirements is a photo of the author. Any volunteers? Y'all know Deke doesn't have one of them thar photograff(sicop: spelled incorrectly on purpose) thingees(ditto). A pseudonym requires anonymity, and plastering a photo of myself on the internets would spoil this disguise forever. I reckon I'll shoot her the head shot showing only my personalized cap.

Part of me wonders if I should just pull the damn book, count my losses and move on to the next book. After all, maybe a twelfth of my Portland brothers and sisters have purchased it, and a smattering of others across the States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. I'm not feeling sorry for myself about it. Rather, I'm a realist. People just don't like to read much these days, unless it's on a phone screen, especially if they do what I write about. The truth sucks, but it remains thus.

I'm no King, Twain or Vonnegut, just plain ol' bus driving Deke. I'll keep writing because that's who I am. This literary challenge to myself began later in life than it should have, but later is better than having never done it at all.

There. A post about writing instead of complaining about the road bozos we constantly endure. Hopefully, you'll keep your eyes crossed for me. Otherwise, I'll be driving until I leave the bus in a casket.

The 77-year-old future Deke will hobble out to his bus and tell a newbie, "Just help me into the seat sonny, I'll take 'er from there!"

A Racial Shakedown in Portland, Oregon

In a 30-second video recorded on Oct. 28, a female pedestrian holding a bicycle helmet is seen making a phone call. She’s complaining about a car blocking a crosswalk on a busy street in Portland, Ore. The phone call ends and the car’s occupants—a young black man and woman—walk up to her and take her to task for reporting them. Some angry words are directed at the bicyclist by the man—“go back to your f—ing neighborhood”—and then the video ends.

If this encounter had unfolded in a normal part of the world, this would be where the story ends: Just another squabble in the battle between drivers and non-drivers over public space. But Portland is not normal. This is a city where antifa mobs are allowed to set up roadblocks and mob elderly drivers, all with the mayor’s apparent acquiescence. 

The latest, above-described victim is a 28-year-old white woman who was captured on video during a phone call with the Portland Bureau of Transportation’s non-emergency parking hotline. The car belonged to Rashsaan Muhammad, who was with his partner, Mattie Khan. They parked improperly on a North Portland street while ordering food from a nearby burger restaurant. While filming, Ms. Khan accused the bicyclist of being “another white person calling the police on a black person.” She wasn’t. Portland Police have no record of that phone call taking place.

It is hard to know how the pedestrian, derogatorily christened “Crosswalk Cathy” on social media, could have known the race of the car’s owners. Portland doesn’t offer its residents race-tagged parking permits (yet), and the incident occurred on a busy business street. But that didn’t stop Portland Mercury news editor Alex Zielinski from writing a provocative (and wrong) story with the headline, “Woman calls cops on Portland man’s parking job. She’s white. He’s black.”

The report, video, and misinformation went viral and spawned a series of other stories targeting the woman. “Portland, Ore., couple Rashsaan Muhammad and Mattie Khan were running to grab a quick bite to eat at Big Burger (sic) when they spotted a woman bearing the skin color of an American terrorist standing across the street looking at their parked car,” read one unsubtle story at The Root. “White lady dubbed ‘Crosswalk Cathy’ called cops because she didn’t like how black couple parked,” headlined another on BET. Newsweek was slightly more charitable, saying she had “allegedly” called the cops. They were all wrong.

Last week’s race controversy ignited by Portland Mercury is not the first time the progressive alternative paper has published race-baiting content. Last year, it ran a libelous (and subsequently retracted) column accusing various restaurants of religious and cultural appropriation—and suggesting they were guilty of “culinary white supremacy.” The predictable result of that column was the siccing of a mob on the female owners of Kook’s Burritos, the business featured most prominently in the piece. They deleted their social media accounts, shut down their food cart, and went into hiding.

“Tribal hatreds are a dangerous thing to stoke,” said Heather Mac Donald, a fellow at the Manhattan Institute and author of The Diversity Delusion. She says most Americans are naïve about the tribal violence that defines much of the historical and modern human experience. “In the worst case, [victim ideologues] are fueling the fires of violent civil strife.”

The genre of “white people doing something to black people” is, by now, a well-established media genre that generates easy clicks. But there is also an unsettling subplot that few seem willing to discuss. The two people of color who star in last week’s viral video both act abominably toward a young woman they’ve just met. In a city where too many bicyclists and pedestrians have been struck and killed in car accidents (2017 was one of the deadliest years with 45 killed), the woman did her role as a good citizen by calling a non-emergency hotline to report the car blocking the crosswalk.

And it was Ms. Khan, not the pedestrian, who instantly racialized the incident, while her male partner called the woman an “idiot” and told her that she doesn’t belong in the neighborhood. Who’s the racist—not to mention segregationist—here?

The couple’s abominable behavior didn’t end after that encounter and the publication of the video on Oct. 29, however. Within hours, Ms. Khan named the bicyclist publicly and posted her photo on social media. Friends and followers of Ms. Khan then continued the doxing, publishing more photos and personal details of the woman. Twitter activist “@Sahluwal,” who only identified himself to me as “Simar,” reposted the video in a tweet watched over 200,000 times. “Twitter, do your thing and identify this woman,” he wrote. Simar told me he was not a witness and did not verify the claim in the video.

Sha Ongelungel, who was recently profiled glowingly as a racial justice activist in The Guardian, published the woman’s employer information on Twitter and encouraged others to call or email them. They obliged and demanded that she be fired. Ms. Ongelungel stopped responding after I inquired if she took any steps to verify the couple’s (false) allegation.

And like the owners of Kook’s Burritos the year before, the victim at the center of the video has deleted her social media presence, taken down her website, and gone into hiding. Her email is no longer listed at her employer’s page. Even some of her family who share the same surname have done the same. This sort of disappearing act now happens regularly in Portland—a new form of excommunication.

While Ms. Khan’s behavior may seem cruel and anti-social, there is a sort of rational logic to it: Progressive Portland is a city where even the most absurd claims of racism are taken seriously and prosecuted hysterically by the media and public.

In May, for instance, a black woman named Lillian Green launched a web campaign against Portland’s Back to Eden Bakery after the vegan shop declined to serve her after closing hours. In the video, she was admirably forthright about her motives for telling the world about this experience: Using the hashtag #LivingWhileBlack, Ms. Green—a doctoral student at Lewis and Clark College—explained that she wants to “blast their ass” on Facebook.

And blasted it was. The owners fired the two women working that evening and offered Ms. Green a job training the remaining employees in “racial inclusivity.” Such incidents send a clear message: Shaming white people, with or without merit, works. People will treat you as a hero. And you will get what you want.

Mattie Khan is now selling clothing merchandise of “Crosswalk Cathy.” She announced the sale on Facebook with a video of Rashsaan Muhammad modeling one of the hoodies at $45 a pop (t-shirts are $25).

In a city whose guilty whites seem ready to roll over on any pretext, no complaint is too absurd to become fodder for race hustling.

False Hopes and Invisible Enemies

Today, many educated people believe that (1) our lives are controlled by invisible, malevolent forces like "structural racism." (2) An evil class of people is born with special powers ("privilege") that allow them to manipulate these forces for their own benefit

People are pattern-seekers. When we observe patterns in the natural world we often seek a deeper explanation for them. An example of a pattern that has captured the attention of academics is the disparity between men and women in fields like mechanical engineering and pediatrics.

Culture is an obvious explanation for some disparities: if a wave of Irish immigrants to Boston joins fire departments, and Italians start restaurants, then we might expect that the next generation of Bostonians will contain a disproportionate number of Irish firefighters and Italian restaurant owners. Similarly, if low-skilled immigrants tend to work in jobs like construction and agriculture, we might expect to find a lot of low-skilled workers who move from Central America to the United States to work on construction sites and strawberry farms.

Another obvious way to explain divergent outcomes between groups is that some groups – ranging from races and sexes, to religions and political partisans – have been discriminated against or persecuted by others. In other words, members of some groups throughout history were not given the opportunity to show their true talents in some fields.

Historically, ethnic discrimination was the norm, not the exception. In fact, ethnic discrimination was almost certainly adaptive for our ancestors who had to decipher, however crudely, who to trust and who to shun. Discrimination often served the function of increasing trust within a group by preventing members of other groups from enjoying access to valuable social goods that took effort to produce and preserve.

Persistent Performance Gaps

When we want to explain performance gaps, the obvious places to start are culture, bias, and discrimination. But in the mid-to-late twentieth century nearly every Western country abolished discriminatory laws, and many also implemented affirmative action programs. Governments, universities, and private firms made active efforts to recruit traditionally persecuted minorities into schools and jobs to which they previously lacked full access.

Under these conditions, some groups improved their outcomes while others did not. Jews and Asians, in particular, have thrived in every Western country in which they are found, and in many cases, they make more money, commit fewer crimes, and attain higher levels of education than the majority group in the societies to which they have migrated.

Moreover, despite the tedious proclamations of politicians that women have a long way to go in Western countries, we are much closer to parity than many believe. The majority of college graduates are now women, and the pay gap between men and women is almost non-existent when we compare workers in the same occupation at the same level. (According to Harvard economist Claudia Golden, most pay gaps are due to choices made by men and women to work in different occupations based on personal interests: women who have children, for example, understandably prefer more flexible jobs, which often pay less.)

As explicit discrimination decreased, social scientists began proposing alternatives to explain remaining gaps. Two, in particular, became popular in the 1990s: stereotype threat and epigenetics. Stereotype threat (supposedly) occurs when people are asked to perform a task and then informed that, on average, members of their group are not especially good at that task. They then perform worse than they otherwise would have. Epigenetics refers to the fact that gene expression is influenced by extra-genomic factors. Some social scientists proposed that if genes can be expressed differently in different environments, perhaps stressful environments can lead some groups to perform more poorly than others by affecting gene expression.

But stereotype threat has turned out to be a spectacular failure in explaining achievement gaps. And epigenetics is unlikely to explain disparities like why Asians outperform Africans on math exams, and why Africans outperform Asians in sports that involve sprinting.

Unfalsifiable Hypotheses

When the predictions generated by these explanations failed to pan out, many began to turn to invisible forces like “structural racism” and “implicit bias” to explain achievement gaps. One problem with these hypotheses (as they are often employed) is that they are impossible to falsify. In fact, that seems to be the point: if we can’t test the hypothesis that unconscious bias and structural racism explain achievement gaps, they become perfect candidates for an all-purpose explanation that can be held with the force of a religious dogma.

When we see an achievement gap, we can invoke bias without even thinking about alternatives, and dismiss as a “racist” or “sexist” anyone who proposes the hypothesis that biology plays a role in explaining some achievement gaps.

Of course, biases exist, and sometimes they are at odds with our explicit value judgments. In these cases, it’s worth spreading social norms that aim to combat unfair biases. But some biases are useful heuristics, and some stereotypes are rational generalizations, like the belief that we have a greater chance of being violently assaulted by a man than a woman, or that the next international chess champion is more likely to be Jewish than Eritrean. In these cases, it is arguably morally wrong to prevent ourselves from believing what the evidence suggests.

When we hear someone attribute achievement gaps to implicit bias or structural racism, an obvious question to ask is: What would count as evidence against your hypothesis?

Vague Language

Structural racism (or sexism) is such an amorphous term that it is hard to know how to analyze it. We might first look to government institutions and private firms and ask whether they have policies of discrimination. In some countries, government agencies and businesses alike have policies that explicitly discriminate against entire classes of people (for example, in Saudi Arabia a man’s testimony in court has twice the evidentiary value of a woman’s). But in many Western countries like the United States and Australia, discrimination on the basis of race, sex, and sexual orientation is explicitly forbidden by law. Affirmative action programs actually do allow employers to discriminate – but they typically discriminate against rather than in favor of men of Asian or European descent.

Of course, we might think that although laws forbid discrimination, implicit bias leads some people to unconsciously discriminate against potential employees and co-workers. Implicit bias is hard to test, but the best evidence we have so far suggests that even when implicit bias exists it does not affect behavior very much, if at all. Despite the weak evidence for implicit bias as an explanation for achievement gaps, many corporations, and educational institutions have diversity training programs aimed at combating its allegedly pernicious effects.

Similar claims can be made about “misogyny,” which is the new term for “sexism” coined by radical feminists who claim that even if most people don’t consciously discriminate against women, an unconscious hatred of women helps explain why men and women exhibit different characteristics, which lead to different outcomes.

Will those who cite implicit bias, structural racism, or internalized misogyny respond to the evidence against their claims? Or will they instead retreat to untestable claims couched in vague language which allows them to save their hypothesis no matter what scientists find?

Conclusion

Those of us who suspect biology plays a role in explaining some group differences do not deny the existence of bias, which is especially powerful in traditional societies that lack norms of toleration and laws that protect minorities. But we are skeptical that racism or sexism or other pernicious forms of bias can explain all of the gaps that we see. More importantly, our hypothesis is falsifiable. One way to falsify it would be to find that genes which influence physical and mental traits – including abilities and interests – are identically distributed across human groups.

If people want to search for the different causes of achievement gaps by proposing testable scientific hypotheses, we welcome them to the debate. But we are frustrated by the seemingly unfalsifiable nature of the hypotheses that are increasingly put forward to defend the view that all groups are the same, and that all indications of difference are evidence of evil.

'I'm not meant to be a bloke': Woman who changed gender to become a man called Lee 15 years ago says sex swap was a huge mistake and wants to switch back

Sex changes are very often regretted

A transgender man who had a sex change 15 years ago has branded it the biggest mistake of his life and wishes he was still a woman.

Lee Harries, 60, of Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, was born Debbie Karemer but underwent gender reassignment surgery at the age of 44.

After years of struggling with his sexual identity, he had his breasts, uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes removed, before doctors made a prosthetic penis for him.

But years later he says: 'I'm not meant to be a bloke' and believes he is not transgender.

Mr Harries, who married his partner Alan before he transitioned, has undergone counselling, where experts have told him he has PTSD as a result of being sexually assaulted by his father.

He told the Mirror: 'I wish I could turn back the clock and just have the foresight of what the nightmare the next 15 years would be.

'I'm a woman I'm not meant to be a bloke. I'm trapped. It's a complete mess - where do you even start? I just regret the decision.

'I'm sure a lot of transgender men feel the same too but I'm the only one honest and brave one to come out and say it.'

Mr Harries says he feels 'mutilated' and believes he had the surgery because he thought if he did not have a vagina anymore he could not be raped.

His trauma has also left him with objectum sexuality, which means he is attracted to inanimate objects.

Mr Harries says he has developed sexual attractions to a fishing rod and a radio, before having a 'relationship' with an electric guitar.

The 60-year-old is currently on the waiting list for an NHS operation to reverse his sex change, but feels 'trapped' in his male body.

The super-rich will regret their vulgar displays

clare foges

UK: Public anger is rising against flashy billionaires such as Philip Green and it’s bound to give a boost to Corbyn’s cause

A full month before pantomime season begins, our favourite villain has returned to the stage in a puff of green smoke: Sir Philip of Monaco. Boo! Hiss! Bubbling under recent coverage has been something approaching delight. Many long for Green’s comeuppance. Dislike of the man stretches back long before these bullying accusations, before BHS hit the rocks and before his shoddy treatment of its pensioners. Two words sum up why Green is long-loathed: greed and vulgarity.

It is one thing to be rich, another to parade it as showily as Green has done (while limiting payments to the taxman). Most famously, there were the parties. His 50th birthday bash was a £5 million event that saw Sir Philip dressed as Emperor Nero. His 55th had performances by George Michael and Jennifer Lopez, pushing the bill up to a rumoured £20 million. The 60th was a more modest affair, only £6 million to cover the numerous bottles of Pol Roger and singalong with Stevie Wonder. Green is a cartoon tycoon, perma-tanned and model-draped, possessing the daddy of all yachts in Lionheart. This £115 million, 295-foot monster troubles the Med’s prettiest harbours each summer blaring the message that its owner is, as the old Harry Enfield character used to declare, “considerably richer than you”.

Green is not the only person to splash the cash, of course, but his profile and pugnacity make him a lightning rod for our dislike of flashy braggarts everywhere. He embodies the culture of vulgarity that has grown ever since loadsamoney City traders flashed their wads of notes in the Eighties. It used to be that modesty was lauded and greed was a cardinal sin. Now the reverse seems true. Displays of wealth that would once have seemed unbelievably crass now barely raise an eyebrow.

The property developer Nick Candy boasts in an interview of the fleet of sports cars he and his brother Christian once owned: Rolls-Royce Phantom, Rolls-Royce convertible, Mercedes SLR McLaren, Ferrari F430 Spider and 575M Maranello, two Range Rovers and a Cherokee Jeep.

Tamara Ecclestone (daughter of Bernie, the Formula One boss) stars in a reality show that lingers on the details of her luxuriant life, from her £70 million house to her many butlers. Plutocrats’ offspring display incredible wealth on Instagram: being waited on in Monte Carlo and buried under Tiffany purchases in New York. A craze sweeping Russia and China shows how such tackiness has gone global. The “flaunt your wealth” challenge has Instagrammers posing corpse-like on the ground next to their luxury car or aircraft as though just pitched out of it, surrounded by Gucci bags, Prada sunglasses, piles of banknotes and jewels.

Most notoriously there is the endless race among the super-rich to build bigger and swankier boats. Last week this paper reported on a surge in demand for mega-yachts, with a predicted 40 per cent increase in the number of 100 metre-plus vessels built in the next few years. One industry figure puts this down to one-upmanship: owners needing to trump each other with multiple decks, helicopter pads, submersible vehicles, piano bars and cinemas.

Criticism of such excess is easily shut down as “the politics of envy”. Defenders of the super-rich ask, “Why shouldn’t they enjoy the fruits of their labours? Lighten up! Let the high-rollers roll!” Call it the politics of envy all you like, but the truth is that as life continues to grind hard for many in our country, as wages continue to stagnate, conspicuous consumption seems not only tacky and crass but taunting and cruel.

Green once complained that he was the victim of “envy and jealousy” but such lifestyles are designed to draw attention and inevitably spark envy. For many among the super-rich, their bought delights are not to be privately enjoyed but publicly shared. Part of the pleasure is in people witnessing your extravagance. In an age when social media and celebrity coverage trumpet every movement of the rich and famous, this means decadent, champagne-spraying spending being rubbed in the face of millions who have bugger all. These displays don’t inspire the hospital porter on the night shift or the carer on minimum wage to reach for the stars — they just make them feel inadequate and small, locked out of a Gatsby-like world.

This is why those who wear their wealth gaudily on their sleeve should be careful. The resentment caused is grist to the socialists’ mill. Anger about inequality is growing, not only among the have-nots but among the have-somethings. The more the super-rich seem to float off into a gilded bubble beyond the rest of us, the more voters will wish for them to be brought to heel. If a Corbyn government should come to “eat the rich”, as the hard-left placards say, if Chancellor McDonnell plays Robin Hood with some painfully (and destructively) redistributive policies, the flashy rich may only have themselves to blame.

To be clear: I don’t believe being on the Rich List makes you a bad person — far from it. I have great admiration for those with the entrepreneurial chutzpah to rise high and prosper. But there are ways to handle extreme wealth with class and even grace. In an essay entitled The Gospel of Wealth, the great Gilded Age philanthropist Andrew Carnegie said the duties of the very wealthy were to shun “display or extravagance” and consider themselves “trustees for the poor”.

Many around the world have taken these words as a manifesto. There are the highly generous, like Bill Gates with his Giving Pledge, and there are those who shun extravagance too. Ingvar Kamprad, the late founder of Ikea, flew only in economy class. The Mexican magnate Carlos Slim drives himself to work. Warren Buffett never spends more than $3.17 on breakfast. In Britain there are many rich people who go about their business modestly and take their responsibilities as trustees for the poor seriously. They start schools in deprived areas, fund mentoring and scholarships, pay enormous amounts in tax and don’t deserve to be tarnished by the brush of Green and his flashy ilk.

The awful “flaunt your wealth” challenge brought to my mind a woman who died in AD 79 . On the outskirts of Pompeii archaeologists found her wearing heavy gold armbands, rings and chains, carrying a bag containing more bracelets, rings, necklaces and a thick braid of gold. Weighed down by her gaudy riches as she ran from the erupting Vesuvius, she is a symbol of the adage that you can’t take it with you.

The super-rich should consider not only how they want to be perceived today but remembered tomorrow. Do they wish to be fossilised surrounded by Ferraris, gold bathtubs and Cartier bracelets or remembered, as the Carnegies and the Rockefellers are, for something better? The choice is theirs.

Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the  incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.

American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of  other countries.  The only real difference, however, is how much power they have.  In America, their power is limited by democracy.  To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already  very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges.  They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did:  None.  So look to the colleges to see  what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way.  It would be a dictatorship.

Mako Miyamoto’s “The Spectral Divide” at Stephanie Chefas.

Currently on view at Stephanie Chefas Projects in Portland, Oregon is artist Mako Miyamoto’s solo exhibition “The Spectral Divide.”

From Stephanie Chefas: “Inspired by the infrared light that exists just beyond the scope of one’s naked eye, the show pulls back the skin on a previously unseen world. It’s here in this desolate realm of infrared radiation–where colors like red and violet emanate with newfound warmth–that Miyamoto’s fully-realized figures roam. As the artist brings us deeper into this seemingly alien terrain, the adjoining sensations of fear, danger, bewilderment, and curiosity remain utterly palpable. Meanwhile, the familiarity of each landscape provides a jarring reminder that this world is indeed just one step removed from our own, brushing past us like waves in the dark.”

“Consisting of both photography and a short film, ​The Spectral Divide​ is over 10 months in the making. To create the work, Miyamoto shot exclusively on a modified camera, capturing the infrared spectrum of light, and thereby providing an authentic glimpse into the parallel world that surrounds us. The more one looks, the more one can feel the infrared heat emanating from the frame, or find him or herself lost in the stark wilderness. Never before has Miyamoto delivered such a tangible feeling as he does here. In fact, you may never think of reality the same way again.”

The exhibition will be on view until November 30th, 2018.

          Re: Grand Jury Clears Police Officers in Fatal Shooting of Patrick Kimmons      Cache   Translate Page      

@Crustina Rae, When there is an active shooter, police will come from every direction. They are at the highest level of alertness to such calls. They will have massive amounts of manpower as well as military grade weapons. What this accomplishes is a massive show of force as well as the highest level of officer safety. What does this do, more often then not it de-escalates the situation. This is why mass shooters are often brought in alive.

During routine police work, a police officer has to make split second life and death decisions, without tactical gear, manpower, or general information about that situation. This is often why police shootings with solo officers happen more.

Patrick Kimmons was lawfullyshot under Tennessee vs. Garner. Yes there was a rational belief that Patrick would shoot and possibly kill someone else. This means he can be legally shot in the back. As for amounts of shots, one vs nine does not matter. For an officer to fire his weapon once, there is only leathal force. One shot is intended to kill, as is nine. It does not matter. There is no way you shoot to disarm. Please look diagram of arteries and veins in the human body. You will see why you cannot shoot to wound. What if you shoot someone in the leg intending to wound and they bleed to death from a bullet cutting the femeral artery. Yep you guessed it lawsuits and protests everywhere.

Now onto white people getting food after a mass shooting. The station Dylan Roof was taking to does not offer food. Why is this important, Mr Roof if not fed could claim a violation of his civil right to no unnecessary cruel and unusual punishment. The officers by giving him food prevent him from using this as an excuse in court. It is also a tactic to build trust with a suspectvto get them to confess. Also please look at a map where he was arrested, the closest food was Burger King. You should applaud these officers for making sure that a vile piece of human excrement like Roof would never see the light of day again.

Please take time to understand the law, the human body, and depolicing. Yes depolicing. This is what happens when officers are affraid to perform their jobs due to perceived no win environments. What causes this feeling? Protesters who have no clue what they are talking about. Activists who protest on behalf of murdering gangbangers. Activists who threaten the lives of officers and their families. Activists who interfere with police work with cameras. Activists who block city streets preventing emergency vehicles from taking sick children to the hospital. Depolicing cause spike in crime In Low income areas. Murder rates sky rocket. See Baltimore pre and post riot. So please ask yourself who are you really harming.

Lastly sign the F up to the police department if you think you can do better!

          Moth StorySLAM Champion David Rodwin Brings His Hit Show Back To PianoFight      Cache   Translate Page      

The Moth StorySLAM champion David Rodwin brings his hit comedic storytelling show F*ck Tinder: a love story back to PianoFight Nov. 23-30, where it Sold Out every show in its run there this spring.

Rodwin returns to San Francisco after months on the road with SOLD OUT shows in LA, DC, Portland, Edmonton and Vancouver, The Washington Post declared it "Inspiring" and DCist, "Hilarious and heartbreaking" as it won the Best Solo Performance award at DC's Capital Fringe Festival and nabbed a Best Solo Performance nomination at The Hollywood Fringe Festival.

F*ck Tinder: a love story is a comedic storytelling rollercoaster. After getting held up at gunpoint the night his girlfriend breaks up with him, David moves to San Francisco and goes on dates with 120 women in 2 years - in search of love, but finding everything else. From a first date hook up who unexpectedly brings along her infant, to being taken to a sex party by a woman who'd just told him "I love you," David brings you on a journey you're glad he took and you didn't. Surprisingly, David's crazy stories grow into a serious spiritual commentary on modern dating, that leads to a tale of love which takes a strange twist, giving audiences hope.

In a time when men are more reluctant than ever to talk about the realities of modern sexual relations in a public forum, David cuts through the bullshit and divulges every detail of dating in the wilds of the Bay Area where there are no agreed upon rules of engagement. Far from a sex crazed stand-up routine, David crafts an authentic and enthralling narrative in which he cuts his heart open in pursuit of that elusive connection. And it's funny as fuck.

David Rodwin (Writer/Performer) has created seven one-man shows that have played in over 30 cities in the US, Canada & Europe. His work (including 7 operas and musicals he composer) has been developed or produced at venues from The Public Theatre to LaMaMa. He's finishing his memoir Never Meet Your Idols about living and working with his mentor Spalding Gray at an arts colony shortly before his suicide, and he has also worked in the writers' rooms on TV shows from CBS to Disney.

          Maine Gov. Paul LePage To Finally Fulfill His Destiny: Becoming FLORIDA MAN      Cache   Translate Page      


Gov. Paul LePage promised the people of Maine he would show how much he loves them by getting the fuck out of the state the minute his eight-year infestation of the governor's office ends. Truly, it was a generous valedictory gesture, although he's probably just going to stick the taxpayers with the bill for the many layers of toxic slime he leaves behind in his office. LePage even managed to make retirement in the Sunshine State seem like a Stygian horror.

LePage explained why he'd be becoming a Florida Man who visits Maine in the summers, instead of being a Mainer who winters in Florida:


"I'll tell you very, very simply: I have a house in Florida. I will pay no income tax and the house in Florida's property taxes are $2,000 less than we were paying in Boothbay," LePage said. "At my age, why wouldn't you conserve your resources and spend it on family (rather) than spend it on taxes?"

The poor sad tax refugee. He also said his one regret as a politician was that he'd only signed two income tax cuts, which hadn't been nearly enough. Ideally, he may have wanted to completely zero out state revenue so no poor person would ever get help of any kind, and then they'd all work hard and get rich.

LePage said he was leaving regardless of who replaces him in office, Democrat Janet Mills or Republican Shawn Moody, whom he's endorsed for governor. But either way, he's getting the hell out, because screw all y'all, he's put up with you people long enough: "I am done with politics. I have done my eight years." Heck, lots of Mainers would have let him out of his sentence earlier, and in fact, thousands let him know it would be just fine with them.

The rage-filled old racist also told reporters he has big plans for staying active during his retirement, too:

LePage said he was "talking to a couple of universities" about teaching in Florida from September through April, but he would not identify the schools.

We guess that must mean Trump University is poised for a comeback! Yr Wonkette is a tad skeptical about LePage's qualifications for an academic job, considering he's an idiot what don't write good, thinks modern science is of the Devil, and has a bad habit of fleeing university campuses if he thinks someone might criticize him. One round of student end-of-semester evaluations and His Perpetual Butthurtness would quit in a huff.

Yr Wonkette wishes Paul LePage a quick and restful retirement, especially one that involves completely vanishing from the public eye.

LePage's farewell to public life -- a tad premature, since his successor won't be sworn in until January -- ended abruptly when he began lunging violently at press photographers, screaming at them to stop stealing pieces of his soul.

          Voters pack the polls in a crucial test of Trump's tenure      Cache   Translate Page      
There were first-time voters and straight-ticket voters and some who, this go-around, switched sides. They went to the polls considering the caravan of migrants trudging across Mexico, their health insurance and their paychecks, an impotent Congress, and the nation's poisonous political culture that has divided even families and friends along party lines.

More than anything on this Election Day in America, in a midterm contest like no other before it, voters cast their ballots with one man in mind: President Donald Trump.

"Trump is terrifying and we need to make a change, so I've been encouraging my friends and family to vote," said Samantha Bohr, 26, casting her ballot in Parsippany-Troy Hills, New Jersey.

Nine hundred miles away, in Nashville, Tennessee, 50-year-old Robert DuBois arrived at his polling place wearing one of Trump's signature red Make America Great Again caps. "That's why there's a line out that door," he said. "You either don't want Trump's agenda or you do want Trump's agenda."

They joined millions of Americans who turned out in droves Tuesday – some lining up before the sun rose, some standing for hours or braving pouring rain or snow – to vote in an election that will determine control of Congress and render a verdict on Trump's first two years in office. The outcome could redefine the nation's political landscape for months and years to come.

Democrats need to gain 23 seats to take control of the House of Representatives, and hope to ride the wave of liberal fury that organized after Trump's surprising victory in 2016.

"My loathing for him knows no bounds," said Kathleen Ross, 69, a retired professor voting in Olympia, Washington, who described herself as a lifelong progressive. She said she was confident the country eventually would reject Trumpism and the divisive governing it represents. "I tend to think the arc of the universe bends toward justice, so I don't become discouraged."

Trump has sought to counter some of that rage by stoking anger, fear and enthusiasm in his base. In recent weeks, he's put the spotlight on a caravan of Central American migrants that he calls "an invasion" of criminals and terrorists. He ran an advertisement about immigration so racially incendiary that all three major cable news networks, including Fox News, either refused to air it or eventually decided to stop showing it.

Among some Republican voters, that message resonated.

"What's going on right now is pretty scary to me, at the border, with all those people coming, and I don't think I'm hardhearted or anything," said Patricia Maynard, 63, a retired teacher in Skowhegan, Maine.

When she voted for Trump in 2016, the blue-collar economy was her primary concern. Now, she said, immigration tops the list. She laments that Congress has so far failed to pass legislation to build the wall Trump promised along the border. So she voted for Republicans Tuesday, with hopes they would retain control and push Trump's agenda.

In Jefferson City, Missouri, Linda Rice believes there are criminals in the caravan. Both Rice and her husband, Richard, praised Trump's time in office, particularly his focus on the economy and his work to secure the border. "I just don't think that my tax money should be taken away from me and given to a person who came across the border illegally," Richard Rice said. "Get in line. Do it correctly."

Just ahead of Election Day, Trump sent military troops to the border – a move critics called unnecessary and a political stunt, given the migrants, many of them women and children fleeing poverty and violence, are traveling mostly on foot and remain hundreds of miles away.

For those who oppose Trump, the caravan controversy singularly represents what they find unconscionable about his presidency.

"He's always used the scare tactics and found an enemy to band against," said 24-year-old Enrique Padilla of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Padilla considers his own family an example of the American dream. His father migrated from Mexico as a laborer at 18, raised his family, and now Padilla has a college degree. The president's persistent demonization of immigrants galvanized him and many of his peers to vote against Republicans, Padilla said.

In Louisville, Kentucky, Mary Cross, a 64-year-old African-American voter, said she believes Trump uses issues such as immigration to distract from more important topics. "It's manufactured fear. It's uncivilized. It's just a bunch of mayhem for nothing. There's no substance to this," said Cross, who thinks the country should be talking about the Republican-led campaign to overturn the Affordable Health Care Act that protects people with pre-existing conditions.

Cross, and others, expressed a heightened sense of unease and sadness about the state of America's political climate. The election comes just days after a series of hate crimes and political attacks. Where Cross lives, a gunman tried to get into a majority-black church but found the doors locked and went instead to a nearby grocery store, where he gunned down two African-American shoppers in what police are calling a hate crime.

"Our president, with his rhetoric and vulgar language, continues to throw fuel on the fire. Racism has always been around, but since he's been in office, people feel free to express it and feel good about it," said the Rev. Kevin Nelson, the pastor of the Louisville church the gunman targeted. The congregation has received cards and calls from all over the country, from Christians and Jews and Muslims and atheists – and also a white man in Texas who said he was sorry about what happened and promised to cast his ballot against the rhetoric he believed to be igniting hate.

"You're always hoping that somehow, some way, someday, it's going to change," Nelson said before he voted Tuesday. "I'm hopeful that it could be this time."

The Simon Wiesenthal Center released a survey on the eve of the election that showed a quarter of Americans have lost friends over political disagreements and are less likely to attend social functions because of politics.

Odell White, a 60-year-old African-American conservative, described the country's tribalism as veering toward civil war.

"We are dangerously close to that type of mentality – brothers fighting brothers. That's how bad it is," said White, who supports Trump and voted for Republicans. Friends have turned away because of his political leanings. White said he doesn't like the president's aggressive rhetoric, but he's willing to overlook it because of the booming economy and the two conservatives Trump installed on the Supreme Court.

But Trumpism has proved too much for some.

In Portland, Maine, Josh Rent, 43, a small business owner and registered Republican, said he voted mostly for Democrats all the way down the ballot for the first time to protest Trump, who he believes is unnecessarily dividing Americans for his own gain. "He's just nasty," he said. "Life doesn't have to be this nasty, in my opinion."

If Democrats do win big, Tory Dibbins, a 53-year-old physical therapist from Portland, Maine, and herself a Democrat, has a warning.

"If you're going to talk about 'let's end the divisiveness and be inclusive' then you have to try to get people to be more bipartisan," she said. "You have to win people back to the center."

          Le thym sauvage inaperçu, le temps irrémissible (Eliot, à propos de Terence Davies, encore)      Cache   Translate Page      

Terence Davies - Distant voices, still lives, 1988 - "In the black midwinter"
In the black midwinter (Christina Georgina Rossetti / Harold Darke) chanté par Mary Seers
Mis en ligne par Emerson Goo



(Réédition d'un billet de 2009)
Terence Davies, cinéaste de la remémoration élégiaque, est un lecteur de T.S. Eliot. Leur affaire commune, c'est le temps, la méditation, la rumination du temps éternellement présent, irrémissible...

Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future,
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable (1)


Chez l'un comme chez l'autre la même obsession de la composition exacte. Autre point de contact avec Eliot le converti, l'amour-haine de Davies pour le catholicisme populaire pour le moins rigoureux dans lequel il fut élevé. Ce n'est donc pas par hasard si au nombre des poèmes dont la récitation rythme Of time and the City, se trouve Little Gidding, qui clôt le cycle mystique des Quatre quatuors.

With the drawing of this Love and the voice of this
Calling 


We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.


J'éprouve une immense gratitude envers Eliot (2), pour mes nuits d'internat passées dans East Coker avec une lampe de poche, et quand j'avais fini je reprenais au début.

In my beginning is my end.







East Coker (1943) et plus particulièrement sa troisième partie, O dark dark dark..., c'est le chaudron central, le trou noir, la noche oscura de la poésie post-moderniste (3) - sans compter que les dix premiers vers sont aujourd'hui d'une grande actualité. Et, puisque Eliot trouvait parfois l'inspiration dans le métro - et qu'il le reconnaît d'ailleurs ouvertement dans ce passage - voici une lecture de ce troisième mouvement d'East Coker au long d'un petit trajet dans ce premier cercle de l'enfer londonien, la Circle line.







T. S. Eliot - East Cocker, IIIème partie : O dark dark dark...
Mis en ligne par MetaBob


O dark dark dark. They all go into the dark,
The vacant interstellar spaces, the vacant into the vacant,
The captains, merchant bankers, eminent men of letters,
The generous patrons of art, the statesmen and the rulers,
Distinguished civil servants, chairmen of many committees,
Industrial lords and petty contractors, all go into the dark,
And dark the Sun and Moon, and the Almanach de Gotha
And the Stock Exchange Gazette, the Directory of Directors,
And cold the sense and lost the motive of action.
And we all go with them, into the silent funeral,
Nobody's funeral, for there is no one to bury.






Vue de la cabine, la Circle line 2 du métro londonien, de Victoria à Great Portland street
Mis en ligne par poshJosh69



I said to my soul, be still, and let the dark come upon you
Which shall be the darkness of God. As, in a theatre,
The lights are extinguished, for the scene to be changed
With a hollow rumble of wings, with a movement of darkness on darkness,
And we know that the hills and the trees, the distant panorama
And the bold imposing facade are all being rolled away—

Or as, when an underground train, in the tube, stops too long between stations
And the conversation rises and slowly fades into silence
And you see behind every face the mental emptiness deepen
Leaving only the growing terror of nothing to think about;




Mabel Dwight - Abstract thinking, 1932




Or when, under ether, the mind is conscious but conscious of nothing—
I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope
For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love,
For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith
But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.
Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought:
So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.
Whisper of running streams, and winter lightning.
The wild thyme unseen and the wild strawberry,
The laughter in the garden, echoed ecstasy
Not lost, but requiring, pointing to the agony
Of death and birth.

You say I am repeating
Something I have said before. I shall say it again.
Shall I say it again? In order to arrive there,
To arrive where you are, to get from where you are not,
You must go by a way wherein there is no ecstasy.
In order to arrive at what you do not know
You must go by a way which is the way of ignorance.
In order to possess what you do not possess
You must go by the way of dispossession.
In order to arrive at what you are not
You must go through the way in which you are not.
And what you do not know is the only thing you know
And what you own is what you do not own
And where you are is where you are not.




Là où vous êtes est là où vous n'êtes pas : à East coker, petit village du Somerset d'où les ancêtres d'Eliot partirent pour l'Amérique au XVIIème siècle et où le principal divertissement - outre l'entretien de la tombe du poète - semble être le grand concours d'épouvantails, ou bien dans la Liverpool engloutie que ressasse un cinéaste désespérément en quête de producteur - là où


...l'obscur sera lumière; le repos danse.
Mumures d'eaux vives, éclairs d'hiver;
Le thym sauvage inaperçu, la fraise des bois,
Les rires au jardin, extase réverbérée
Non point perdue, mais requérant, mais s'efforçant vers, l'agonie
De la mort et de la naissance. (4)




Terence Davies - The long day closes, 1992, séquence de fin
Paroles et musique de Gilbert & Sullivan
interprétées par Pro Cantione Antiqua
Mis en ligne par cragarrows




No star is o'er the lake,

Its pale watch keeping,

The moon is half awake,

Through gray mists creeping,
The last red leaves fall round
The porch of roses,
The clock hath ceased to sound,
The long day closes.

Sit by the silent hearth
In calm endeavour,
To count the sounds of mirth,
Now dumb for ever.
Heed not how hope believes
And fate disposes:
Shadow is round the eaves,
The long day closes.

The lighted windows dim
Are fading slowly.
The fire that was so trim
Now quivers lowly,
Quivers lowly.

Go to the dreamless bed
Where grief reposes;
Thy book of toil is read,
The long day closes;

Go to the dreamless bed
Where grief reposes;
Thy book of toil is read,
Thy book of toil is read,
Go to the dreamless bed,
The long day closes.




(1) T.S. Eliot, Burnt Norton, 1-5.

(2) Eliot le réactionnaire (ah, Little Gidding et sa référence sous-jacente au pauvre roi Charles Ier...) Eliot l'antisémite (franchement, Gerontion et Sweeney among the nightingales, il faut se les avaler...) - et pourtant oui, Eliot.

(3) C'est-à-dire, celle d'après Zone et The waste land, celle du ressac, de la reconfiguration d'après le grand craquement des années 10. Cet entre-deux, ce tremblement (au bord du retour à l'ordre), nous y sommes toujours.

(4) East Coker, 129-134, trad. Pierre Leyris, qui a travaillé en contact étroit avec Eliot en 1947 à Londres. Il existe d'autres traductions mais celle de Leyris reste la seule autorisée par l'éditeur qui détient les droits et les défend fermement contre les tentatives concurrentes, parfois même antérieures au travail de Leyris.

          Analysis: Gonzaga forward Rui Hachimura puts on a show in rout of Idaho State Bengals      Cache   Translate Page      

Rui Hachimura’s first shot was a successful elbow jumper 38 seconds into the game.

He spent the rest of the night attacking the rim with a variety of power moves. He probably would have joined Gonzaga’s 40-point club had Idaho State kept the score reasonably close.

Hachimura took over in the last 9 minutes of the first half and the first 6 of the second half, guiding the third-ranked Bulldogs to a 120-79 season-opening victory in front of 6,000 Tuesday night at the McCarthey Athletic Center.

“He’s made a big jump,” Zags coach Mark Few said. “He’s being really aggressive. I’ve been on him to own it a little bit more, and I think he’s starting to own it.”

Hachimura certainly owned the Bengals. The Japanese native had 21 points at half, 15 coming rapid-fire as Gonzaga expanded a 26-24 lead into a 23-point bulge. He quickly put up 12 points in the second half before exiting with 13:53 left.

He deflected credit to teammates after shattering his previous career high of 25 points, set against Ohio State in last year’s NCAA Tournament.

“Josh (Perkins) and me were always looking for each other, on the same page,” said Hachimura, who shook off having two of his shots blocked. “I think we only had seven turnovers. Those point guards did a really good job of taking care of the ball. We shared the ball.”

Hachimura’s final figures: 33 points, 25 minutes, 13 of 18 field goals, 7 of 9 free throws, two assists.

“You see he can flat-out score,” said guard Zach Norvell Jr., who has some expertise in that area. “And it’s always good to have teammates behind him that support him. We want to keep feeding him. If he could have got 100 tonight, everybody on the team would have been happy.”

Hachimura had company filling up the stat sheet. Gonzaga scored 60 points in each half en route to the fifth-highest scoring game in program history. It was the Zags’ highest point total in 24 years.

Hachimura’s and Brandon Clarke’s presence inside coupled with shooting ability of the guards puts opponents in a defensive bind.

“If you double-team the post, you kick out and ‘Snacks’ (Norvell) and Perk and I will shoot 30 3s,” sophomore wing Corey Kispert said. “If you one-on-one in the post, Rui will have a night like tonight.”

Norvell scored 19 points by intermission and finished with 23 to go with seven boards. Clarke, despite encountering foul trouble, had 15 points and nine boards. Freshman forward Filip Petrusev, who needed three stitches to close a cut on his forehead, added 12 points.

Kispert drilled four 3-pointers and finished with 14 points, six boards and four assists. The Zags distributed 29 assists, led by Perkins’ eight and Geno Crandall’s six.

“I’m at a point I expect every one to go in,” Kispert said. “A lot of work here, over summer, late at night, getting that (shot) right. I finally feel I’m comfortable to let anything fly and feel good about it.”

The Bengals tested GU’s defense. Brandon Boyd used his speed to generate 13 first-half points, but the Zags also forced the speedy point guard into four turnovers.

Forward Chier Maker, who played at Portland as a freshman, buried two 3-pointers and an off-balance 17-foot jumper just before the buzzer, cutting GU’s lead to 18. Center Kelvin Jones scored 11 points but fouled out in just 13 minutes.

“We made them take some tough shots,” Norvell said. “They were clicking for a minute there in the first half. (The defense) was a little lackadaisical at the beginning, but we got it back together down the stretch.”

At the other end, it was no contest. Gonzaga put foul pressure on the Bengals, resulting in 37 free throws.

“That’s going to be a huge part of our offense, just the way we push, the pace we play at,” Crandall said. “Our post players are so good at getting position, it’s tough for defenders to keep the ball out of the paint.”

Hachimura drove home that point against the Bengals.

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."

          Park Lodge adds lunch, happy hour and tasting menus      Cache   Translate Page      

Park Lodge is now open for lunch.

Plus, the newer Kendall Yards restaurant has also launched three-course and six-course tasting menus as well as happy-hour pricing from 4 to 5 p.m.

Park Lodge has offered a cocktail hour since opening in spring. But drinks were offered at their regular price points. Now, happy hour features $5 wells, $6 glasses of red or white wine and a dollar off draft beer. A couple of cocktails – the Kalimotxo and Porto Tonico right now – are $6

Park Lodge has also added lunch service from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Nov. 5 was the launch for both lunch and happy hour.

The new lunch menu includes starters such as calamari, lamb meat balls, Brussels sprouts and steamed Manila clams. There’s also an array of soups, salads and sandwiches, including the Park Lodge Smash Burger with onion-bacon jam, arugula, Gruyere and green peppercorn aioli on a pretzel bun.

Plates are duck confit carbonara, roast chicken breast and the restaurant’s popular seven vegetable tagine. Desserts are pumpkin spice creme brulee and baklava.

The three-course tasting menu is $40, or $65 with a wine pairing. And the six-course tasting menu is $90, or $130 with a wine pairing.

Park Lodge opened in April. Philip Stanton is the chef and owner. He specializes in locally inspired comfort food with a Mediterranean influence.

“The menu is reflective of what comfort food means to me,” Stanton told The Spokesman-Review when he opened his restaurant earlier this year. “This is me in my comfort zone.”

Stanton, a 2004 graduate of St. George’s School in Spokane, worked for nearly three years as the sous chef at Italia Trattoria in Browne’s Addition while planning and searching for a location for his own eatery.

He attended the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco then spent about three years in the greater Los Angeles area and another three years in Portland before returning to Spokane.

Park Lodge is at 411 N. Nettleton St.

Voters in long lines get donated pizza

PHOENIX (AP) - A group sent 8,000 pizzas to hungry voters as they waited in long lines that plagued polling places across the country Tuesday.

The group Pizza to the Polls collects social media reports of long lines and doles out pizzas accordingly. The group enjoyed a boost in recent days because of tweets and donations from celebrities like Debra Messing, Alyssa Milano, Mandy Moore and Patton Oswalt, raising more than $300,000 over a 24-hour period.

Co-founder Katie Harlow of Portland, Oregon, said she and two friends came up with the idea in 2016 when they saw people waiting in long lines. They picked pizza because of its mass appeal and because it's easily shared.

Its pizza deliveries are a barometer of where the worst lines are occurring. Harlow said Georgia voters were the biggest recipient of its pizzas Tuesday.

          Mechanical properties of alkali-activated concrete subjected to impact load      Cache   Translate Page      
Title: Mechanical properties of alkali-activated concrete subjected to impact load Authors: Ding, Y; Dai, JG; Shi, CJ Abstract: Drop-weight tests are conducted to study the dynamic flexural properties of alkali-activated concrete (AAC) under four different impact velocities, corresponding to strain rates of 15, 35, 55, and 75s-1. The effect of low temperature (-30 degrees C) is also observed at the strain rate of 35s-1. The replacement ratio of fly ash with slag, alkali concentration, modulus of alkali activator, and water:binder ratio are selected as parameters to study the strain rate effect of AAC. The quasi-static compressive strength, flexural strength, and elastic modulus are evaluated. For comparison, one mixture of ordinary portland cement concrete (OPCC) is also studied. The results show that, similar to OPCC, AAC is a strain rate-sensitive material; the flexural strength, energy consumption, and deformation at failure increase with the loading rate; the dynamic increase factor (DIF) of flexural strength is related to its quasi-static strength, and a lower quasi-static strength leads to a higher DIF; and the energy dissipation capacity of AAC increases almost linearly with the strain rate regardless of its quasi-static strength. In addition, different from OPCC, alkali-activated slag concrete (AASC) is found to exhibit less sensitivity to low temperature in terms of the flexural property, which might be attributed to the refinement of the microstructure, high proportion of micropores, and high concentration of pore solution in AASC.

          Margie Smith-Haas      Cache   Translate Page      

Margie (Mary Margaret) Smith-Haas is an American sportscar driver who raced at Le Mans in 1984 and 1985. She usually drove Porsches.

In 1984, she drove a Porsche 930 run by Charles Ivey Racing, sharing with Paul Smith and David Ovey. The car made it to just under half-distance before an oil leak triggered its retirement. The following year, she drove a J. Winther Denmark URD C83 prototype, which also did not finish. Its BMW engine expired after 141 laps, despite the best efforts of Margie, Jens Winther and David Mercer.

Le Mans was only a small part of Margie’s career. She was active in motorsport between 1978 1995, beginning when she was 28 years old and recently married to Paul Haas. The couple met competing in a time trial.

Her first major race was the Road Atlanta 500 Miles in 1979. She drove a Porsche 914 run by Personalized Porsche with Paul Haas and Wayne Baker. They were 27th overall and eleventh in class.

The Personalized Porsche car came out again for a second IMSA race, the Riverside 5 Hours in 1980. Margie was 26th, as part of a three-driver team with Paul and Jeff Scott.

A break from racing followed, but when Margie returned to competition in 1983 she was no less ambitious. She raced in Europe for the first time, beginning with the Monza 1000km in April. This was the first of four European Endurance Championship races she entered. Her car was a Group C Porsche CK5, shared with Tony Dron and team owner Richard Cleare. They retired early on with an oil leak.

She was scheduled to contest the Silverstone 1000km for Edgar Dören’s team but did not make the start, despite qualifying in 28th place. Her next event was the Brands Hatch 1000km, the first of two in a Charles Ivey Racing Porsche 930. Margie, Paul Smith and David Ovey took the Group B car to 15th place against the Group C leviathans, and then finished thirteenth at Mugello.

Having shared a track with motorsport royalty like Jacky Ickx and Bob Wollek for much of the season, Margie found herself among Hollywood royalty in April when she partnered actor Gene Hackman for the Riverside 6 Hours. She was driving a Toyota Celica run by Dan Gurney’s All-American Racers team. The event, which was overshadowed by the death of Rolf Stommelen, led to a 16th place for Margie.

She did some more European Endurance rounds in 1984, again in the Charles Ivey 930, but could not finish any of them, including Le Mans as mentioned above. Le Mans was not the only 24-hour she entered, however: she was part of a three-driver team for the Daytona 24 Hours, driving a Porsche 911 RSR for Team Dallas with Paul Gilgan and John Zouzelka. They were 27th, sixth in class.  

Later in the year she did her first race in the southern hemisphere. She was invited by Gebhardt Motorsport to drive its BMW-engined prototype at the Sandown 1000km in Australia, as part of an all-female team. Margie, Cathy Muller and Australian Sue Ransom managed 95 laps, somewhat under half-distance, before the car’s suspension gave way.

Margie’s 1985 Le Mans outing became her only big race of the year. She attempted to qualify for the Daytona 24 Hours in a Porsche 924 run by El Salvador Racing, but did not even make the official qualifying sessions. Her career was now in one of its leaner periods. In 1986, she tried to enter the Trans Am series in a Porsche 924, but the car was unreliable and never made the start of either race for which she officially registered.

She and Paul managed to get the 924 to two IMSA races in 1987, at Portland and Del Mar. They did enter more, but did not start. Margie was 27th in the Portland 300km and twelfth in the 45-minute Del Mar race, driving solo this time.

In 1988, she joined the American City Racing League, representing San Diego. This was the first year that the championship ran. Margie ran the three-car San Diego team that raced against similar teams from Hollywood, Sacramento and other US cities. Her own racing season was shortened as she spent the first part of it recovering from neck surgery after a road traffic accident.

She competed in the Sports 2000 class using a 2000cc one-make Sports 2000 car.. After a couple of seasons she became one of its leading drivers, finishing third in 1991 and winning the title in 1994 after leading for most of the season. This was the first win in a pro racing series for a female driver, in the USA at least.

Her last major sportscar race was the 1995 Daytona 24 Hours. Margie was back in a Group C car, driving a Spice SE90 for Screaming Eagles Racing. Her co-drivers included another Hollywood actor, Craig T Nelson. They did not finish following an accident.

Her last professional race looks to have been one of the ACRL rounds in 1996. She did four races in the series that year and was eleventh in the final standings.

She did return to the tracks briefly in 2002 for some races in the ACRL and was thirteenth overall.

After her retirement, she was a member of the all-female PPG Pace Car team attached to CART. At present, she runs a small company producing car-themed gifts, chiefly novelty cushions in the shape of famous racing cars.

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

          Manager and operator fined for illegal club operation      Cache   Translate Page      
     A man and a woman were fined $3,000 each at the Kowloon City Magistrates' Courts today (November 7) for contravening the Clubs (Safety of Premises) Ordinance.

     The courts heard that in April last year, officers from the Office of the Licensing Authority (OLA) of the Home Affairs Department conducted an inspection at a club on Portland Street in Mong Kok which had been operating with a certificate of compliance (CoC).
      
     OLA officers posed as customers and patronised the club for food and drinks without being asked to show their membership status or being invited to join the club as members. Also, the staff of the club failed to show the registered drawings upon the OLA officers' request. Conditions 17 and 19 of the CoC were breached.
      
     The man and the woman, being the manager of the club and the CoC holder of the club respectively, were charged with contravening section 21(1) (a) and section 21(2) of the Ordinance.

     A spokesman for the department reminded all CoC holders to comply with the conditions as stipulated therein. Enforcement action will continue to be taken against illegal club operations.

BA: I've known your music with Sea And Cake since the mid 90s, but I've only recently gotten to know your photos through Instagram. How'd you get into photography?

SP: I grew up around photography, darkroom in the house, the whole thing. My dad is a long time and quite accomplished artist/photographer.  Somehow I avoided it til much later. I went to art school for painting and the two don't coexist, especially in art school.

What do you mean "the two don't coexist"? 

Yes of course they “coexist” I should have said the departments just felt quite separate without much interaction at least from my perspective. I was so focused on painting I’m not even sure I was aware there was a photo department!

Was it a situation as a kid where you didn't want to do what your parents did? Is that why you avoided it when younger?

I don't think so really. I knew pretty early on I wanted to be an artist but I just didn't equate photography with it exactly I suppose. I do recall doing Rayograms. Is that the term placing objects, etc, on photo sensitive material?

Yeah, those are fun. You did those in art school?

At Home.


Nikko, Japan

What does your dad think of your recent photos? Does he follow your Instagram stuff?

He's always been a big supporter of whatever I'm getting up to. He's checked on my Instagram but hasn't kept up. I tried to get him involved but it just didn't click, too small! His main tool is large format studio photography, which doesn't quite translate well on a phone.

The digital divide. What if you show him prints or some other method? Just curious how he'd react from an art/academic perspective. I think your photographic style is unlike what's usually taught in art schools.

Well the IG thing is somewhat recent for me, well a couple of years I guess, but I was for sure focused on making prints and dreaming of making books. But I'd say he thinks I'm a better painter than photographer! And probably wishes I would get back to that instead of music, etc.

What does he think of Sea and Cake's music?

Well I’m not sure how often he really listens to it, but I’m pretty sure he likes it fine. I think he’s most impressed that I’ve eked out a career of doing what I want. He’s always been very supportive of me not getting a real job! 

Are you still painting?

It's been a while but admit I feel like I'm gearing up for it again. I make a lot of drawings that I think keep me somewhat limbered up. I also think of my photos as in a away as "fast" paintings. Really fast!

Split second. Drawing has no chance. Let me go back a second to art school. You didn't do any photo studies there?  

Yeah, no photo stuff in art school.

Did art school help you with looking? Or was it more focused on thinking?

I'd say my focus was looking first, thinking afterward, which is how I make photographs as well. My paintings work along similar lines, hope something happens that's interesting and that you're in a place to recognize it and not screw it up. 

When did you first get into photography?

I started dabbling a bit in designing record covers, but didn't really get into it until on a whim I brought a camera on an early tour, and pretty quickly I fell pretty hard for it. I early on made the connection that in a raw sense, just looking was rewarding work in itself, and the documents became interesting as well.

How do you decide which of your photos to use on album covers?

Well actually I almost never plan on using one of my photos, the exception would be the latest record, but that came about somewhat by accident. While looking through some old 4X6 prints the image I used seemed so just right and that the photo is probably 10 or so years old also contributed a mysteriously detached quality to it even though its subject matter is so familiar to me, but in a transition state, being that it’s a photo of a room that I had just moved into, in a new house at the time, but where I live now. Anyway these are a few of the reasons the image resonated with me so much I think. Also normally I don’t really decide on what an album cover should be until the record's finished. In this case I found the photo and then made the record. It was on my mind during most of the process.

What about generally? What are your favorite all-time album covers that use third-party photos? 

Oddly not something I’ve really thought about. but one of my least favorite album covers happens to use the Eggleston photo of the dolls on the Cadillac! I think it’s a Big Star or Alex Chilton record. 

Did you pursue any training as a photographer? 

No training in photography. Years after first getting into it, I then became really interested in the "craft" of making prints in a darkroom. So for five or so years I was focused primarily on black and white work, and teaching myself how to print and process.

Sam Prekop, Photographs
2017 (Presspop Gallery Publications)
Those were the photos in your first book.

Yep. So my darkroom work was going well and then I had kids, and had to shut it down!

Because of kids?

Yeah, we needed the extra bathroom and somehow the whole operation seemed just too close to newborns. I now have a separate studio again and have thought about setting something up again, but really I think I'd shoot for getting my painting studio going first.

So the reason you switched to color was purely due to space limitations? Was there some aesthetic reason too?

In retrospect I consider myself a color photographer. I started with color and then the black and white detour occurred. Wanting a darkroom —among many reasons I was not satisfied with the whole scan and inkjet workflow. I wanted"real" prints, and black and white was what I could pull off. Of course I love black and white work. I just don't think my work is as strong in that area.

Do you make prints now of your color work? 

Actually I don't make prints all that often any more. I mean, I hope that changes but the right project I guess hasn't presented itself. But when I do I scan and then send them out to be printed on "photo paper"

Well that's a print, isn't it?

Yes, of course, but I used to print a whole lot more. Now it's a somewhat rare occasion.

You're shooting film?

Yeah, film.

I asked before if you'd pursued any photographic training but I'd kinda guessed the answer already. What I like about your photos is they are quite raw and unmanipulated. So whatever you're doing, don't change it. I'm curious if you were looking at other photographers as you developed, or had any outside influence besides your dad. How did you find your style?


St. Louis perhaps?

Well yes, I look at a lot of work. I guess these days it's on IG! So I've gone through several periods of obsession with certain photographers. Like a lot of people Eggleston was pretty big for me. I recall seeing his work before making photographs and being distinctly unimpressed. I think it helps to try making you're own work to really appreciate his genius. Walker Evans, Robert Adams, Atget, many of the usual suspects. I also went through a real German photography period which hasn't held up for me quite well.

What do you like about Eggleston's photos? Do you remember the conversion moment for you, when you went from unimpressed to impressed?  

The first Eggleston book I came in contact with was “The Democratic Forest” and I think it’s still my favorite. So I think his work really got to me in book form. I think the sequencing and the color feeling like the subject really spoke to me in a way that a one off photo can’t do. Also the process of having the book and coming back to it again and again only increased the weird fleeting ephemeral quality to the work. And his working statement with regard to a visual democracy, that anything can be a photo has of course been a huge influence on me. 

I think Eggleston is an good example of photography being inside baseball. If you don't make photos he can seem obtuse. A bit less generally accessible than music, perhaps? I guess it depends on the specific photos or specific music

I agree, but a bizarre strength of taking a photo is that it's available to anyone. I've always found this fascinating. It's truly democratic, for better or worse. Music takes more effort I'd say on a base level. But because of photography's inherent qualities, it's very difficult to make an interesting picture.

How do you know when you've made an interesting photo?

Well, I never quite feel like I'm "making" it. I like to think I found my better pictures. While I'm out taking photos is not where it's happening, in a way. For me it's quite intuitive, backed with a lot of looking. The ones that get to me jump out with not a lot of effort. Of course I'm not always right!

I'm curious about your process. How do you go about finding photos?

When I'm really on I'll go out daily to take photos. However it's usually en route to do something else, grocery store, kids, school, etc. So it's pretty much in my neighborhood. I rarely go somewhere specific to take photos, but I will say my neighborhood has been quite an inspiration. I also do quite a bit on tour as well, but I feel like my best work happens around here in Chicago.

Which neighborhood is that?


Chicago

Pilsen. It still feels like "old Chicago". It hasn't changed as much as other areas, and is quite a vivid mash up.

Photography is a good enforcer. It makes you pay attention to the everyday. Just one city block can provide entertainment for hours. Maybe it's a double edged sword though, because eventually it becomes hard to simply be in the world without visualizing it as a photo. That's especially a problem for folks (I'm one too) who find material in their everyday routines. Sometimes I envy studio photographers. They can make their work in one place. Then come home and leave it behind for a while.

I spent some time setting up still life situations to photograph an interesting problem to solve. It's definitely closer to painting than street photography. Lately I've just started taking photos again around here, and being what I'd say is a bit rusty, everything looks new and weird again, pleasant but somewhat awkward.

Are there streets or areas nearby you haven't yet explored with a camera? Or have you seen all of it by now?

I do feel like I’ve seen them all! Well, not really. I like alleys quite a bit in that they’re more similar to each other than say streets are. So alleys always have a sort of neutral appeal to them always nicely unremarkable and it’s likely I’ve seen most of them but who can remember! So they look oddly new all of time. The neighborhood just south of Pilsen is called Bridgeport and it’s really as different from Pilsen as you can get both visually and culturally as well. I actually feel like I work there a bit more lately and it does seem to hold some more surprises for me in a way lately.  

Do you compose music in your head while photographing? Or is that a completely separate activity?

Yeah pretty separate, really. I'm usually working on one or the other.

Why did the German photographers become less interesting to you?

I guess last year I saw a pretty major Thomas Struth retrospective in Munich, and I was quite shocked at how flat it felt to me. I really don't like huge prints at all, and the work felt bored, and maybe he wishes he were making paintings? A bit harsh, I guess! But I can't say I'm opposed to all german photography!

The Düsseldorf stuff is pretty controlled. 

Yeah, I think my initial attraction to it along with everyone else was that they might not be "photos" in a away, and a very specific "European-ness" to them was quite exotic some how.

It's not really my thing either. But I like some of the related offshoots like, say, Stephen Shore or Baltz.

Yes, Shore would be in my foundations list.

What do you think of his Instagram photos?

Hmm, I really like that he makes them, but I'm not always convinced by them. But somehow that doesn't bother me.


Chicago

What's your take on Instagram in general? Do you value the feedback? Do you learn from it?

I guess I was a bit conflicted when I started and really wasn't all that interested, but it's grown on me gradually. Now that I'm into it I'd say now I've learned a tremendous amount from it and really have found crazy value for my work and the work I've found. I think it's changed my work as well. Before IG I really didn't have much of an outlet, and wasn't all that concerned about it either. But now I just appreciate in a weird way what I've been exposed to and the exposure I think it's afforded me as well. 

But it is a real time suck! I am a bit concerned that I'm compelled to post something daily, and fear quite a bit the addiction involved with the "feedback" element.

You've learned a tremendous amount about your own photos? Or about what's out there?

One thing I've caught myself feeling that one photo might be to Instagram focused, an easy shot, and I've been a bit weary of leaning on what I think might work better than another, in an Instagram context. But of course some stuff just works better than others.

Who is someone you've discovered there whose photos have radically opened your eyes or altered your thinking?

Hmm, I wouldn't say radically, but I do have some favorites. @ann.lee, @hitomarunobase, @negativeone2, these are a couple of the top of my head.

@negativeone2, yeah he's extremely unpredictable in a good way. That's Scott that used to live in Portland. Good friend of @faulkner.short. I think he lives in San Antonio now. But his IG feed doesn't really show that. It's all over the place. And time.

Yeah definitely, somehow his work has changed, even though he seems to show a lot of old stuff. But for quite a while I felt we probably just liked the same photographers. But some photos he's gone past that for me.

What do you mean, his work has changed? How so?

When I first started following his work, I must have liked something about it, but it seemed so wildly inconsistent and perhaps that was part of the appeal in a way. But maybe the work hasn’t actually changed as much as I think, but just that he’s gotten much better with the editing. I will say I’m still pretty often surprised by a certain loose almost scattershot way he has with his work but still comes off quite elegantly. 

I feel the self imposed Instagram filter you mentioned earlier. After being on there a little while I realize that some photos work better on IG than others. So it's hard for me to impose the type of conscious inconsistency that makes some books work well, or that Scott employs to great effect. Extrapolate that to the general situation and Instagram is probably having some long-term effects on the overall direction of photography. Another double edged sword. Darn, those things are everywhere.

Yes, definitely.

Maybe Spotify and Soundcloud are having a similar effect on music?

Hmm I guess, I actually don't really participate with that stuff any where near to IG. I know it's happening, just hasn't happened to me.

Why do you distribute your photos and music in such different ways? Is it something about the artistic mediums? Or about you?

I make a lot of electronic music that I’ve been thinking about posting on soundcloud / bandcamp , and I’d be interested in the feedback to it and just having it exist beyond my studio. But since I do have a more “traditional” way of getting my music heard via my record label that could be why I’ve been a bit less urgent about getting it out there in a social media sort of way.  I’m definitely not opposed to it. I think it’s really just a matter of time and a bit of sorting priorities. 


Portland

Do you ever put together shows of your photos? Or maybe have another book planned? Or some other non-IG outlet?

I've had a handful of shows, but for me I think books are the optimal way to deal with photos. I'm always thinking book in the back of my mind, but no plans.

Are there photographers in Chicago you get together with to share work or chat or shoot together? Or is it just you?

Just me. I know a couple of people working, but yeah, I don't feel a part of any "photo community" here. For a while I used a rental darkroom and really enjoyed the general photo banter action.

I think that's another maybe underrecognized aspect to Instagram. It can feel like a community of sorts. Or maybe it can supply community for those folks who don't have it locally.

When I take photos on tour, I find a bit annoying to have other people around! Always having to ask people to move out of the way, etc.

You mean shooting photos with bandmates?

Yeah, band mates. I'm sort of kidding a bit.

I generally like to shot alone, especially in urban scenes. But it's nice each month to hang out with photo buddies and look at pix together.

Yeah, that would be excellent. Archer who's in my band is quite a cheerleader and critic of my work so I'm always eager for his take on things.

Does he take photos?

He does, but it's pretty much in an in passing sort of way.

But he has good feedback?

Years ago he would say he had loftier ambitions for it, I think.

So he dropped photography to do something practical...like join a rock band. Haha.

Well the feedback I'd say wouldn't be perhaps the most hardcore. But we have such a long working history it's valuable.

Friends like that are so valuable they're invaluable.

Agreed.
