Daily News Links Are Below These Opening Questions And Warnings
How much carbon monoxide are you in when in any motor vehicle?

Did you know that many people do not measure the air they breathe.

After prevention there is no greater awareness than measurement.
Awareness leads to quick thinking. Measurement leads to quick action.

Are you in the know?

Do I know enough about carbon monoxide and carbon monoxide poisoning to justify never knowing how much is in the air I breathe every day, everywhere I go?”

There are some people who want to be notified of the presence of carbon monoxide at levels or concentrations as soon as the gas is present, at concentrations well below those that can instigate poor health symptoms but not be high enough levels to sound the CO alarm they own.

There are some people who do not want to push a button on their CO alarm to see what low, aggravating levels of the poison might be in their home, or anywhere.


The most recommended CO Alarm in U.S. is a high level alarm

Standard for Single and Multiple Station Carbon Monoxide Alarms
UL 2034
1.3 Carbon monoxide alarms covered by this standard are not intended to alarm when exposed to long-term, low-level carbon monoxide exposures or slightly higher short-term transient carbon monoxide exposures, possibly caused by air pollution and/or properly installed/maintained fuel-fired appliances and fireplaces…

Please Note: "Place a carbon monoxide alarm with a digital display on a seat in the motor vehicle when you are out driving in emergency snow conditions (or always for that specific). Harmful levels of carbon monoxide (CO) can penetrate inside a motor vehicle just due to prevailing winds and exhaust not moving away from the vehicle but under it. If you want to learn more about carbon monoxide, begin measuring it with a personal CO monitor everywhere you go." Bob Dwyer, CSME Carbon Monoxide Safety

We have all been CO poisoned, some more than others
The following link takes you to a site with views from those who have been poisoned. The seriousness of carbon monoxide poisoning, the grief, suffering and disorientations experienced are clearly portrayed with the intent to help others and prevent future poisonings. With respect, please visit: Carbon Monoxide Survivor

What is in the air you are breathing right now?

What will you be doing today; walking into poison?
Who will be responsible for the air you breathe?
You may be the only person who can prevent your own poisoning.
We are all vulnerable to carbon monoxide exposure and poisoning.
Everyone has been poisoned by CO and will be poisoned again. The degree of the poisoning depends upon allowing yourself to be in a situation where someone else controls the air you breathe and the mechanisms for alarming notification.

Please read the alarm information on the package and in the instructions that come with the carbon monoxide alarm. Know that if it is a U.L. 2034 Listed product (or CSA 6.19 Listed), it is a high level alarm that has been tested to alarm no sooner than 70 PPM at the lowest (the alarm must resist for one hour when above this level) and when over 400 PPM before 15 minutes at the highest concentration, after resisting alarming for 4 minutes when over this level.

Know when your fire department and emergency responders begin wearing their breathing apparatus and what their civilian evacuation levels are for carbon monoxide; it may be as soon as the gas is present in your presence. Pregnant women, infants & children, people with heart & respiratory struggles, those suffering depression or chronic headaches and all people of vulnerable health should be alerted as soon as the gas begins to concentrate, around 10 PPM (parts per million) or lower.

You most likely need a low level carbon monoxide detector to sound off when carbon monoxide hazards are just beginning, not after you’ve been exposed to levels that make you have headaches, flu-like symptoms, increased tiredness, heart stresses or worse.

Do not take risks with carbon monoxide. Take responsibility for the air you breathe and the combustion systems you are responsible for. If you don’t do it for yourself, do it for others, unless you think $45.00, high level protection is good enough.

Help prevent injuries and deaths; don’t guess about carbon monoxide. Measure carbon monoxide for safety and knowledge. The more you test the more you learn. GET BUSY

Measurement is continuing education at its best. Bob Dwyer, CSME Carbon Monoxide Safety

Tribute
George Kerr, a pioneer in smoke and carbon monoxide alarm manufacturing passed away in his home during the early morning of July 4, 2017. George will always be remembered for his passion to save lives and protect the health of people through low level carbon monoxide detection and alarming. He lived for over 84 years, beginning his career in fire safety in 1953. “We’ll never know how many lives we’re saving, but I know we are saving a few.” George E. Kerr (1933-2017)

U.S. Carbon Monoxide Laws for each state
National Conference of State Legislatures
As of March 2018, a majority of states have enacted statutes regarding carbon monoxide (CO) detectors, and another 11 have promulgated regulations on CO detectors. Alaska requires detectors approved by the state fire marshal be installed in all dwellings. Connecticut requires them in all new construction, as does New Hampshire, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia. Florida also requires them in new construction, and in every room with a boiler. Minnesota passed a law requiring detectors in motor boats.

CO Detectors in U.S. Homes
27 states and the District of Columbia require carbon monoxide detectors in private dwellings via state statute: Alaska, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia (via adoption of the International Residential Code), Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Certain states limit the installation to buildings with fossil-fuel burning devices, others only require the device be installed upon the sale of the property or unit.

Another 11 states require carbon monoxide detectors in private dwellings regulatorily through the adoption of the International Residential Code or via an amendment to their state’s building code: Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wyoming.

CO Detectors in U.S. Schools
California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maine and Maryland require carbon monoxide (CO) detectors in school buildings.

CO Detectors in U.S. Hotels and Motels

Now that it's officially fall, travel season is almost upon us. The days are growing shorter, and the weather is getting colder and wetter... or worse. To prepare you for the months of icy snow and darkness ahead we have some new information on new Turks and Caicos flights. We also have some tips on how to find cheap tickets to save money on your vacation on warm and sandy Grace Bay Beach.

Southwest to Resume Daily Direct Flights to Turks and Caicos

Southwest Airlines has announced they will resume direct flights from Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood to Providenciales International Airport (PLS) in Turks and Caicos starting November 4.

These flights will connect in Fort Lauderdale to and from cities in the eastern half of the United States such as Baltimore, New York, Atlanta, Orlando, Tampa and Washington DC.

As well  Southwest will be offering new direct flights from Nashville to Providenciales, with service expected to start in November, 2017. Fares and flight schedules to Providenciales have yet to be announced, so stay tuned!

InterCaribbean Launches New Turks and Caicos Flights

If you're planning an excursion to Grand Turk and want to see as much of Turks and Caicos as possible, InterCaribbean's new service may be of interest.

Turks and Caicos-based regional Caribbean airline InterCaribbean Airways has officially commenced its new service from Grand Turk to both South Caicos and Salt Cay.

List of Flights to Turks and Caicos

There are direct flights between Providenciales Airport (PLS) and many cities throughout North America and Canada, including New York, Atlanta, Miami, Toronto and Montreal.

Schedules for fall and winter 2018 are still being determined, so, for daily flights be sure to check the Turks and Caicos Airport Authority, or check out the airlines' websites for up-to-date information:

Tips on Getting Cheap Tickets to Turks and Caicos

For some people, the actual planning process is one of the most enjoyable parts of taking a vacation. It's always a challenge to hunt down the best flight deals, so here are a few tips:

1. Search for tickets one seat at a time

If you are searching for tickets for your family, if you really want to save money, try searching by one ticket at a time. This is because most automated systems will show you the highest fare for all the tickets. If you try searching one seat at a time, there may be limited seats on sale.

2. Search at midweek

Airlines tend to launch their sales on Tuesdays and end them on Thursdays, so don’t limit your searches to the weekends.

3. Fly on a holiday

It may seem counterintuitive, but the biggest savings can be found by flying on the actual holiday, such as Thanksgiving or Christmas Day. The exception is if you’re traveling over a three-day weekend—then, everyone is looking to fly on the actual holiday, so that’s the perfect time to try and extend your vacation by a day.

4. Fly on a Tuesday, Wednesday or a Saturday

Why? Because planes are least full on these days of the week, these flights usually have the lowest fares.

5. Monitor Twitter, Facebook and airline emails

Follow your favorite airlines on social media in addition to signing up for discount online travel company emails.

How the Mainstream Media Turn Villains into Saints



It is sickening the way the press eulogise dead war criminals and US Presidents in particular.  I can remember the BBC gushing over Ronald Reagan when he died and making a tribute programme to the man who unleashed the Contras in Nicaragua and supported the death squads in El Salvador. Ronald Reagan was seen as a beacon of hope for democracy even whilst he did his best to impoverish the poorest Americans.  But this is how our opinion makers work.
George Bush was the man who headed the CIA, a criminal organisation which subverted democratically elected governments in Latin America and brought the regimes of Pinochet and Videla to power in Chile, replete with their torture chambers and mass disappearances.  Bush represented all that was most vile in American politics and the fact that the Clintons are gushing all over his memory should teach us that when it comes to US politics there is no essential difference between Republicans and Democrats.

George Bush was the son of Senator Prescott Bush, a businessman and banker who made much of his fortune trading with Nazi Germany even after war was declared.  But as one of America's leading families, almost akin to  royalty, he escaped prosecution for aiding the enemy at a time of war despite financing Fritz Thyssen one of the largest steel and coal barons who organised finance for Hitler.
People won't remember the shooting down of an Iranian civil airliner Flight 655 by the USS Vincennes of the US Navy. 290 people, including 66 children, were murdered. George H W Bush was not the kind quirky, friendly soul that is made out today.  George H.W. Bush in 1988 responded to the mass murder by saying: "I will never apologize for the United States of America. I don't care what the facts are." was his Trumpian response.

The tributes to former President George H.W. Bush, who died on Friday aged 94, have been pouring in from all sides of the political spectrum. He was a man “of the highest character,” said his eldest son and fellow former president, George W. Bush. “He loved America and served with character, class, and integrity,” tweeted former U.S. Attorney and #Resistance icon Preet Bharara. According to another former president, Barack Obama, Bush’s life was “a testament to the notion that public service is a noble, joyous calling. And he did tremendous good along the journey.” Apple boss Tim Cook said: “We have lost a great American.”

In the age of Donald Trump, it isn’t difficult for hagiographers of the late Bush Sr. to paint a picture of him as a great patriot and pragmatist; a president who governed with “class” and “integrity.” It is true that the former president refused to vote for Trump in 2016, calling him a “blowhard,” and that he eschewed the white nationalist, “alt-right,” conspiratorial politics that has come to define the modern Republican Party. He helped end the Cold War without, as Obama said, “firing a shot.” He spent his life serving his country — from the military to Congress to the United Nations to the CIA to the White House. And, by all accounts, he was also a beloved grandfather and great-grandfather to his 17 grandkids and eight great-grandkids.

Yes I know this was written for his son but it is equally applicable  to the father
Nevertheless, he was a public, not a private, figure — one of only 44 men to have ever served as president of the United States. We cannot, therefore, allow his actual record in office to be beautified in such a brazen way. “When a political leader dies, it is irresponsible in the extreme to demand that only praise be permitted but not criticisms,” as my colleague Glenn Greenwald has argued, because it leads to “false history and a propagandistic whitewashing of bad acts.” The inconvenient truth is that the presidency of George Herbert Walker Bush had far more in common with the recognizably belligerent, corrupt, and right-wing Republican figures who came after him — his son George W. and the current orange-faced incumbent — than much of the political and media classes might have you believe.
Consider:
He ran a racist election campaign. The name of Willie Horton should forever be associated with Bush’s 1988 presidential bid. Horton, who was serving a life sentence for murder in Massachusetts — where Bush’s Democratic opponent, Michael Dukakis, was governor —  had fled a weekend furlough program and raped a Maryland woman. A notorious television ad called “Weekend Passes,released by a political action committee with ties to the Bush campaign, made clear to viewers that Horton was black and his victim was white.
As Bush campaign director Lee Atwater bragged, “By the time we’re finished, they’re going to wonder whether Willie Horton is Dukakis’s running mate.” Bush himself was quick to dismissaccusations of racism as “absolutely ridiculous,” yet it was clear at the time — even to right-wing Republican operatives such as Roger Stone, now a close ally of Trump — that the ad had crossed a line. “You and George Bush will wear that to your grave,” Stone complained to Atwater. “It’s a racist ad. … You’re going to regret it.”
Stone was right about Atwater, who on his deathbed apologizedfor using Horton against Dukakis. But Bush never did.
He made a dishonest case for war. Thirteen years before George W. Bush liedabout weapons of mass destruction to justify his invasion and occupation of Iraq, his father made his own set of false claims to justify the aerial bombardment of that same country. The first Gulf War, as an investigation by journalist Joshua Keating concluded, “was sold on a mountain of war propaganda.”
For a start, Bush told the American public that Iraq had invaded Kuwait without provocation or warning.” What he omitted to mention was that the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, April Glaspie, had given an effective green light to Saddam Hussein, telling him in July 1990, a week before his invasion, “[W]e have no opinion on the Arab-Arab conflicts, like your border disagreement with Kuwait.”
Then there is the fabrication of intelligence. Bush deployed U.S. troops to the Gulf in August 1990 and claimed that he was doing so in order “to assist the Saudi Arabian Government in the defense of its homeland.” As Scott Peterson wrote in the Christian Science Monitor in 2002, “Citing top-secret satellite images, Pentagon officials estimated … that up to 250,000 Iraqi troops and 1,500 tanks stood on the border, threatening the key U.S. oil supplier.”
Yet when reporter Jean Heller of the St. Petersburg Times acquired her own commercial satellite images of the Saudi border, she found no signs of Iraqi forces; only an empty desert. “It was a pretty serious fib,” Heller told Peterson, adding: “That [Iraqi buildup] was the whole justification for Bush sending troops in there, and it just didn’t exist.”

He committed war crimes. Under Bush Sr., the U.S. dropped a whopping 88,500 tons of bombs on Iraq and Iraqi-occupied Kuwait, many of which resulted in horrific civilian casualties. In February 1991, for example, a U.S. airstrike on an air-raid shelter in the Amiriyah neighborhood of Baghdad killed at least 408 Iraqi civilians. According to Human Rights Watch, the Pentagon knew the Amiriyah facility had been used as a civil defense shelter during the Iran-Iraq war and yet had attacked without warning. It was, concluded HRW, “a serious violation of the laws of war.”

U.S. bombs also destroyedessential Iraqi civilian infrastructure — from electricity-generating and water-treatment facilities to food-processing plants and flour mills. This was no accident. As Barton Gellman of the Washington Post reportedin June 1991: “Some targets, especially late in the war, were bombed primarily to create postwar leverage over Iraq, not to influence the course of the conflict itself. Planners now say their intent was to destroy or damage valuable facilities that Baghdad could not repair without foreign assistance. … Because of these goals, damage to civilian structures and interests, invariably described by briefers during the war as ‘collateral’ and unintended, was sometimes neither.”
Got that? The Bush administration deliberately targeted civilian infrastructure for “leverage” over Saddam Hussein. How is this not terrorism? As a Harvard public health team concludedin June 1991, less than four months after the end of the war, the destruction of Iraqi infrastructure had resulted in acute malnutrition and “epidemic” levels of cholera and typhoid.
By January 1992, Beth Osborne Daponte, a demographer with the U.S. Census Bureau, was estimating that Bush’s Gulf War had caused the deaths of 158,000 Iraqis, including 13,000 immediate civilian deaths and 70,000 deaths from the damage done to electricity and sewage treatment plants. Daponte’s numbers contradicted the Bush administration’s, and she was threatened by her superiors with dismissal for releasing “false information. (Sound familiar?)
He refused to cooperate with a special counsel. The Iran-Contra affair, in which the United States traded missiles for Americans hostages in Iran, and used the proceeds of those arms sales to fund Contra rebels in Nicaragua, did much to undermine the presidency of Ronald Reagan. Yet his vice president’s involvement in that controversial affair has garnered far less attention. “The criminal investigation of Bush was regrettably incomplete,”wrote Special Counsel Lawrence Walsh, a former deputy attorney general in the Eisenhower administration, in his final report on the Iran-Contra affair in August 1993.
Why? Because Bush, who was “fully aware of the Iran arms sale,” according to the special counsel, failed to hand over a diary “containing contemporaneous notes relevant to Iran/contra” and refused to be interviewed in the later stages of the investigation. In the final days of his presidency, Bush even issued pardonsto six defendants in the Iran-Contra affair, including former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger — on the eve of Weinberger’s trial for perjury and obstruction of justice. “The Weinberger pardon,” Walsh pointedly noted, “marked the first time a president ever pardoned someone in whose trial he might have been called as a witness, because the president was knowledgeable of factual events underlying the case.” An angry Walsh accused Bush of “misconduct” and helping to complete “the Iran-contra cover-up.”
Sounds like a Trumpian case of obstruction of justice, doesn’t it?

He escalated the racist war on drugs. In September 1989, in a televised address to the nation from the Oval Office, Bush held up a bag of crack cocaine, which he said had been “seized a few days ago in a park across the street from the White House . … It could easily have been heroin or PCP.”

Yet a Washington Post investigation later that month revealed that federal agents had “lured” the drug dealer to Lafayette Park so that they could make an “undercover crack buy in a park better known for its location across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House than for illegal drug activity” (the dealer didn’t know where the White House was and even asked the agents for directions). Bush cynically used this prop — the bag of crack — to call for a $1.5 billion increase in spending on the drug war, declaiming: “We need more prisons, more jails, more courts, more prosecutors.
The result? “Millions of Americans were incarcerated, hundreds of billions of dollars wasted, and hundreds of thousands of human beings allowed to die of AIDS — all in the name of a ‘war on drugs’ that did nothing to reduce drug abuse,” pointed out Ethan Nadelmann, founder of the Drug Policy Alliance, in 2014. Bush, he argued, “put ideology and politics above science and health.” Today, even leading Republicans, such as Chris Christie and Rand Paul, agree that the war on drugs, ramped up by Bush during his four years in the White House, has been a dismal and racist failure.
He groped women. Since the start of the #MeToo movement, in late 2017, at least eight different womenhave come forward with claims that the former president groped them, in most cases while they were posing for photos with him. One of them, Roslyn Corrigan, told Time magazine that Bush had touched her inappropriately in 2003, when she was just 16. “I was a child,” she said. The former president was 79. Bush’s spokesperson offered this defenseof his boss in October 2017: “At age 93, President Bush has been confined to a wheelchair for roughly five years, so his arm falls on the lower waist of people with whom he takes pictures.” Yet, as Time noted, “Bush was standing upright in 2003 when he met Corrigan.”
Facts matter. The 41st president of the United States was not the last Republican moderate or a throwback to an imagined age of conservative decency and civility; he engaged in race baiting, obstruction of justice, and war crimes. He had much more in common with the two Republican presidents who came after him than his current crop of fans would like us to believe.

          Das sind die Gründe für den Absturz der Packers       Cache   Translate Page      

Nur vier Siege aus den ersten zwölf Saisonspielen, fünf Pleiten in den letzten sechs Spielen - die Green Bay Packers um Quarterback-Superstar Aaron Rodgers sind ein Schatten ihrer selbst.

Nach der peinlichen Niederlage am Sonntag gegen Kellerkind Arizona Cardinals zogen die Franchise-Verantwortlichen die Reißleine und entließen Head Coach Mike McCarthy nach 13 Jahren im Amt.

Damit geht in Wisconsin eine Ära zu Ende. Unter dem Cheftrainer entwickelte sich Rodgers, der ein Jahr vor McCarthys Amtsübernahme 2005 gedraftet worden war, zu einem der besten Spielmacher der NFL-Geschichte.

Mit Rodgers auf dem Feld und McCarthy an der Seitenlinie waren die Packers quasi Stammgast in den Playoffs. Sechs Mal gewann Green Bay in dieser Konstellation die NFC North. Der Höhepunkt der Erfolgsgeschichte: der Super-Bowl-Triumph 2010.

Spannungen zwischen McCarthy und Rodgers

Von diesen Glanzzeiten ist die Traditions-Franchise aus Wisconsin in dieser Saison allerdings Lichtjahre entfernt - auch, weil sich in der Beziehung zwischen Rodgers und McCarthy Risse gebildet hatten.

Schon nach dem Sieg gegen die Buffalo Bills in der vierten Woche kritisierte der Superstar den Gameplan seines Trainers öffentlich. Rodgers hielt McCarthys Ansagen für uninspiriert. Und schaut man auf das Gesamtbild, das Rodgers und Co. in dieser Saison in der Offensive abgeben, fällt es schwer, dem Quarterback zu widersprechen.

Allein in den letzten fünf Spielen kam Green Bay drei Mal nicht über 17 Punkte hinaus. Viel zu wenig, wenn ein Ausnahme-Athlet wie Rodgers, auch wenn dieser zugegebenermaßen seit Saison-Beginn mit Knie-Problemen zu kämpfen hat, die Fäden zieht und ein hochtalentierter Receiver wie Davante Adams auf dessen Pässe wartet.

Rodgers schwächelt

Die Baustellen im Angriff der Packers sind vielfältig, gründen aber nicht nur in McCarthys Vorgaben. Auch der in Wisconsin heldenhaft verehrte Rodgers schwächelt in dieser Spielzeit. Seine bislang 21 Touchdown-Pässe sind nur Mittelmaß. Dazu kommen lediglich 61,8 Prozent seiner Zuspiele bei den Mitspielern an. Zum Vergleich: MVP-Kandidat Drew Brees von den New Orleans Saints kommt in dieser Statistik auf 75,5 Prozent.

Bis auf Adams kann sich Rodgers aber auch nicht wirklich auf seine Receiver verlassen. Randall Cobb verpasste verletzungsbedingt bereits sechs Spiele. Tight End Jimmy Graham spielt eine der schwächsten Saisons seiner NFL-Karriere. Und auch Rookie-Passempfänger Equanimeous St. Brown deutet sein Potenzial bisher nur punktuell an.

Im Spiel gegen die Cardinals, dem absoluten Tiefpunkt der bisherigen Packers-Saison, blieb der junge Deutsche ohne einen einzigen Catch. Das Laufspiel der Packers in der Rodgers-Ära ist ohnehin schon beinahe traditionell kein wirklicher Faktor.

"Normalerweise basiert der Erfolg, den wir in den letzten Jahren hatten, darauf, dass wir klug mit unserem Ballbesitz umgehen und dazu ein effizientes Passspiel mit Big Plays und explosiven Raumgewinnen an den Tag legen. Dieses Jahr fehlt uns aber diese Explosivität", bemängelte Rodgers zuletzt.

Individuelle Fehler

Dazu kosteten gerade zu Saisonbeginn individuelle Fehler die Packers ein Spiel nach dem anderen. In Woche 5 leistete sich Kicker Mason Crosby bei der 23:31-Niederlage gegen die Detroit Lions sage und schreibe fünf Fehlschüsse. Gegen Arizona versagten dem Routinier nun wieder die Nerven.

Zwei Wochen nach Crosbys schwarzer Nacht gegen Detroit hielten die Packers gegen Super-Bowl-Kandidat Los Angeles Rams bis zum Schluss hervorragend mit. Ein leichtsinniger Ballverlust von Running Back Ty Montgomery, der sich kurz vor Schluss dazu entschied, den Kickoff der Rams aus der Endzone zu tragen, anstatt abzuknien, kostete Rodgers und Co. allerdings die Chance auf den Sieg.

Der Quarterback soll danach in der Kabine gewütet haben wie selten zuvor. Zur anschließenden Trade-Deadline wurde Montgomery, seit seinem Draft 2015 eigentlich ein zuverlässiger Arbeiter, zu den Baltimore Ravens abgeschoben.

Fragwürdige Trades

Er war nicht der einzige Akteur, der Green Bay verließ. Auch Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Pro-Bowler von 2016, wurde etwas überraschend für einen Viertrunden-Pick an die Washington Redskins abgegeben - ein viel zu geringer Gegenwert, wie die meisten Packers-Fans beklagten. Denn Clinton-Dix war nach Verletzungsbeschwerden eigentlich wieder auf dem Weg zur Topform.

"Wir haben alle Anteil an den Enttäuschungen und Misserfolgen in dieser Saison. Wir hatten unsere Chancen. Es ist ja nicht so, dass wir in den meisten Spielen abgeschossen werden. Wir sind lange in den Spielen drin, selbst wenn wir nicht gut spielen. (...) Aber wir schaffen es einfach nicht. Wenn wir nur ein paar von diesen engen Spielen gewinnen, sprechen wir gleich über ganz andere Dinge", resümierte ein sichtlich verbitterter Rodgers nach der Blamage gegen die Cardinals.

Neuer GM will Kader umbauen

Für die Packers kann es nun, da sie zum zweiten Mal in Folge die Playoffs verpassen dürften - ein Wunder muss her um es doch noch zu packen -, nur noch darum gehen, die Weichen für eine erfolgreichere Zukunft zu stellen. "Wir werden unverzüglich mit der Suche nach einem neuen Head Coach beginnen", stellte Präsident Mark Murphy in der Stellungnahme zu McCarthys Entlassung klar.

Die Chancen für eine Trendwende sind auf jeden Fall vorhanden. Mit Brian Gutekunst übernahm im Vorjahr ein neuer General Manager das Ruder, der sich auf die Fahnen geschrieben hat, den Kader mit aggressiven Moves neu zu strukturieren.

Ein namhafter Running Back oder ein zweiter Top-Receiver dürften ganz oben auf der Wunschliste stehen, damit Franchise-Gesicht Rodgers, mit 35 Jahren noch immer im besten Quarterback-Alter, wieder die Waffen an der Seite hat, um an seine MVP-Leistungen früherer Jahre anzuknüpfen.

          Brady erreicht Mannings Touchdown-Meilenstein       Cache   Translate Page      

Erst vor einer Woche klaute Tom Brady seinem alten Rivalen Peyton Manning den Rekord für die meisten Pass-Yards, jetzt ist der fünfmalige Super-Bowl-Champion in einer weiteren Kategorie mit Manning gleichgezogen: Gegen die Minnesota Vikings brachte Brady den 579. Touchdown-Pass seiner Karriere an.

Im kommenden Spiel gegen die Miami Dolphins hat der "GOAT" nun die Möglichkeit, sich alleine an die Spitze des Touchdown-Rankings zu setzen.

Dazu durchbrach Brady, der nicht gerade für sein Laufspiel bekannt ist, nach 265 NFL-Spielen in 19 Jahren auch endlich die Marke von 1000 Rushing Yards. Kein anderer NFL-Spieler hat jemals ansatzweise so lange dafür gebraucht.

Der Touchdown-Pass auf Josh Gordon blieb im Spiel gegen Minnesota Bradys einziger. Dank zweier Rushing-Touchdowns von James Develin und einer starken Leistung der Defense, die Minnesotas Receiver-Top-Duo Adam Thielen und Stefon Diggs bei lediglich 77 Yards hielt, gewannen die Patriots dennoch ungefährdet mit 24:10.

18. Saison mit positiver Bilanz in Folge

Gegen Miami können sich Brady und Co. damit schon zum Division-Sieger der AFC East krönen. Aktuell steht der Super-Bowl-Finalist des Vorjahres bei neun Siegen und drei Niederlagen. Damit werden die Patriots die Saison zum 18. Mal in Folge mit einer positiven Bilanz beenden. Eine längere Erfolgsserie legten in der NFL-Geschichte nur die Dallas Cowboys zwischen 1966 und 1985 hin.

Mit nun fünf Niederlagen müssen die Vikings im Gegensatz dazu um ihre Playoff-Teilnahme bangen. (Zur Tabelle der NFL)

Im ersten Spiel ohne ihren Superstar Kareem Hunt setzten die Kansas City Chiefs ihre traumhafte Saison fort. Angeführt vom Quarterback-Shootingstar Patrick Mahomes mit vier Touchdown-Pässen rangen die Chiefs im nächsten Highscoring-Game die Oakland Raiders mit 40:33 nieder.

Chiefs gewinnen ohne Hunt

Unter der Woche hatte sich das Überraschungsteam der Saison von Running Back Hunt getrennt, nachdem ein Video aufgetaucht war, das zeigt, wie dieser in einer Hotel-Lobby eine Frau tritt und schlägt.

Überragender Akteur der Chiefs war neben Mahomes Tight End Travis Kelce. Der 29-Jährige fing insgesamt zwölf Pässe seines Quarterbacks für 168 Yards. Zweimal griff er in der Endzone der Raiders zu. Auch Hunt-Ersatz Spencer Ware steuerte einen Touchdown zum zehnten Saisonsieg der Chiefs bei.

In einem verrückten Sunday Night Game setzten sich die Los Angeles Chargers dramatisch gegen die Pittsburgh Steelers durch. Ein Fieldgoal von Michael Badgley, der im Spielverlauf zuvor schon einen Versuch vergeben hatte, sicherte den Chargers in letzter Sekunde den 33:30-Comebacksieg.

Chargers krönen Aufholjagd

Zur Pause hatte das Team von Quarterback-Star Philip Rivers noch mit 7:23 zurück gelegen. Danach ließen die Chargers aber 23 Punkte in Serie folgen, ehe Steelers-Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger mit einem Touchdownpass auf Jaylen Samuels die Partie nochmals ausglich.

Badgleys Fieldgoal mit Ablauf der Uhr aus 29 Yards Entfernung sorgte dann aber für die Entscheidung. Besonders kurios: Der Matchwinner musste dreimal für seinen entscheidenden Schuss antreten. Zunächst setzte der Kicker das Fieldgoal daneben, durfte wegen einer Abseitsstellung der Steelers-Defense aber nochmal antreten.

Danach wurde Badgley geblockt, aber wieder entschieden die Referees auf "Defensive Offside". Im dritten Anlauf behielt der 23-Jährige dann die Nerven und tütete den neunten Saisonsieg der Chargers ein.

Bitter für die Steelers: Shootingstar James Conner musste nach zwei Touchdown-Läufen im vierten Viertel mit einer Bein-Verletzung vom Feld. Conner, der zu Saisonbeginn als Ersatz für den streikenden LeVeon Bell einsprang, spielte bislang eine überragende Saison und entwickelte sich mit inzwischen 13 Touchdowns zur Lebensversicherung der Steelers. Eine Diagnose zu seiner Verletzung gibt es noch nicht.

Während die Chargers fest mit den Playoffs planen und sogar noch den Divison-Sieg in der AFC West einfahren können, wird es für die Steelers nach der zweiten Niederlage in Folge im Playoff-Rennen wieder eng. Der Super-Bowl-Champion von 2008 liegt in der AFC North nur noch hauchdünn vor den Baltimore Ravens.

Anti-Nuclear Plowshares Activists Finish Testimonies 
at Federal Hearing in Georgia

BRUNSWICK, GA – The Kings Bay Plowshares evidentiary hearing regarding the Religious Freedom Restoration Act has concluded after a second full day of testimony November 19. Five of the seven defendants testified at the hearing on Monday. The activists are facing three felony charges and one misdemeanor charge with a possible 25 year sentence. They were arrested April 5 at Naval Station Kings Bay on the Florida border as part of their protest against Trident submarines and the D5 missiles they carry.

The seven Plowshares activists are asking the court to dismiss their charges because the government failed to offer them the least-restrictive means of resolving the charges against them.

Monday’s hearing was the conclusion of two days of testimony regarding the RFRA. The defendants explained their “deeply held religious beliefs,” and how their practice of their religion has been burdened by the government’s response to their actions. The RFRA requires the government to take claims of conscientiousness seriously.
Defendants Fr. Steven Kelly, S.J. and Clare Grady gave their testimony Nov. 7. In addition to the remaining five co-defendants testifying Nov. 19, the prosecution called its second of two witnesses, a civilian communications official.

After the testimonies, Magistrate Judge Benjamin Cheesbro denied motions from several co-defendants requesting a lessening of their bond restrictions, including removal of ankle monitors for the five defendants who are released on bond. They challenged the government’s contention that the five are a “danger to community safety.” Kelly and Elizabeth McAlister remain incarcerated in the Glynn County Detention Center.

In their testimonies throughout the day several defendants noted that the Trident nuclear weapons are the greatest threat to all of God’s creation.

Elizabeth McAlister, from Baltimore, who turned 79 years old a few days ago while in jail, recounted her trial for a 1983 Plowshares action in which she testified: “The government has set up a religion of nuclearism. It is terrifying and dead, dead wrong. It is a form of idolatry in this culture, spoken about with a sense of awe. It’s a total contradiction to our faith. It puts trust in weapons, not trust in God.”

“God is our strength,” McAlister said, then quoting scripture: “Be still and know that I am God.”

Carmen Trotta, from Manhattan, said that the government’s possession of nuclear weapons imposes a burden on all religious faith. He quoted the Catholic Church’s Vatican II documents:

“The arms race is a treacherous trap for humanity. Nations should mature to take care of one another. Nuclear weapons prevent us from having mutual cooperation with each other rather than mutual destruction.”

Patrick O’Neill, from Garner, NC, said everyone in the courtroom had much more in common, that the defendants and the prosecution truly shared a compelling interest to prevent nuclear war.

“It is our universal burden,” he said. “We can’t separate our religion and our faith from our lives, they are the same thing. Our Catholic faith calls us to uphold the sanctity of life and to preserve creation.”

O’Neill said the real sin present at Naval Station Kings Bay are the Trident II D-5 nuclear missiles on the Ohio-class submarines for which the base serves as the home port.
Martha Hennessy, of New York and granddaughter of Dorothy Day, the co-founder of the Catholic Worker Movement, spoke of the formation of her faith. Hennessy said early on she learned that nuclear weapons threaten all of God’s creation, and are directly opposed to her beliefs.

“I’m a grandmother, as a few of us are here,” Hennessy said. “I don’t care just for my children, but all the children in the world.”

Mark Colville, of New Haven, CT, testified his faith forms the foundation of his conscience.

“It’s the rudder of the ship of my life,” he said. “The sins of omission interfere with my faith in God.”

Colville spoke of former CIA officer turned political activist Ray McGovern’s comparison of what the Plowshares were trying to do in community, through a story about the cathedral near the World War II concentration Camp Buchenwald.

“The Incense of the ceremonial prayers within the church outside Buchenwald, rising upward to God, and over the wall just beyond,” he said, “The smoke from the chimneys of the death camps, the ashes of our brothers and sisters rising upward… and the two streams of smoke meeting above. Who’s prayers are being answered by God? Kings Bay Naval Base is labeled as a death camp for the entire world in the waiting.”

“What I’m charged with just seems so very petty compared to nuclear annihilation,” Colville said. “Yes, we went in the night and cut through the fence. We’re called to go into the darkness, to bring in light, to expose what is hidden.”

It is not known when Judge Cheesbro will make his ruling following this hearing. If he rules against the defendants’ motion to dismiss a date will then be set for their trial.
The Plowshares movement began in the early 1980s and advocates active resistance to war usually involving symbolic protest and the damaging of weapons and military property. There have been about 100 Plowshares protests worldwide.

“The victory of the day,” said Patrick O’Neill after the hearing, “Was that truth was spoken by all defendants.”

“It is clear that is the threat.”

          NFL coaches who will be fearing Black Monday      Cache   Translate Page      
Almost every NFL coach knows when they're hired that they will eventually be fired. Judgment day for head coaches is better known as Black Monday, the Monday after Week 17 games when some head coaches are handed their pink slips.  Here's a look at the coaches with the most to fear as we near the final stretch of the regular season. Todd Bowles, New York Jets It's somewhat surprising that Bowles has held on for this long. Not much was expected of his team this year with a rookie quarterback in Sam Darnold, but the team still has played below expectations at 3-8 through 12 weeks. After going 10-6 in his first season as head coach in 2015, Bowles' teams went 5-11 in back-to-back years.

          Guaranteed admissions can help reduce college undermatching      Cache   Translate Page      

Low-income, highly qualified students are more likely to choose selective universities that match their academic profiles when they know their admission is guaranteed through state automatic admissions policies, according to a new study published online today in Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Educational Research Association.

Prior research has found that low-income, high-achieving students are more likely than their high-income academic peers to undermatch--attend a less selective college than they are academically qualified for--creating an income-related gap in access to high-quality higher education among students with similar academic qualifications.

The new study, conducted by Kalena E. Cortes, an associate professor of public policy at Texas A&M University's Bush School of Government and Public Service, and Jane Arnold Lincove, an associate professor of public policy at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, investigated the effect of the "Top 10 Percent Plan" admissions policy in Texas on approximately 146,000 public high school students who graduated in spring 2008 and spring 2009 and who applied to at least one Texas four-year public university.

During the time of the study, Texas granted automatic admissions to any public university for all students who achieved a class rank in the top 10 percent in their high school during their junior year. (The University of Texas at Austin began automatically admitting students in the top 7 percent of high school rank beginning in fall 2011 and will raise the bar to the top 6 percent in fall 2019.) The state created the Top 10 Percent Plan in 1997 as a replacement for affirmative action.

The researchers found that while low-income, highly qualified students--defined as students who had high SAT scores along with top 10 percent class rank--were still more likely to undermatch, on average, than their high-income peers, Top 10 Percent eligibility reduced undermatch with a larger effect on low-income students than on similar high-income students.

Top 10 Percent status was associated with a 15 percentage point increase in high-income, highly qualified students applying to a closely matched campus but a significantly larger 24 percentage point increase for similar low-income students. Top 10 Percent status was also associated with a 16 percentage point increase in the probability of applying to a flagship campus for high-income, highly qualified students and a 22 percentage point increase for similar low-income students.

These results persisted to enrollment. The Top 10 Percent Plan reduced the likelihood of undermatch through enrollment at a "safety school" by 17 percentage points for a high-income, highly qualified student and a significantly higher 23 percentage points for a low-income, highly qualified student.

The plan also increased the likelihood of enrollment at a closely matched or flagship campus by larger margins for low-income, highly qualified students than for their high-income peers--22 percentage points compared to 16 percentage points, respectively, at closely matched campuses, and 22 percentage points compared to 17 percentage points, respectively at flagship campuses.

"We found that the automatic admissions policy in Texas can influence student application and enrollment behaviors," said Lincove. "Because the effect of admissions certainty on low-income students with both high class rank and high SAT scores was larger than on their high-income peers with similarly strong academic performance, admissions guarantees may help close the income gap in college matching."

Admissions certainty did not improve the access gap for low-income students with high class rank but low SATs. Among Texas students who had a high class rank that triggered automatic admissions but also low SAT scores, only high-income students responded to admissions certainty by applying to and enrolling in universities where students had higher average SATs.

"Low-income students, unlike their high-income peers, pay attention to their own SAT scores as a signal of college qualification, even when the SAT scores don't matter for admissions decisions," Cortes said. "We have found similar racial differences in how students respond to SAT scores in other studies. The test results are having a differential effect on students."

Under the Texas plan, eligible students receive a notification of their guaranteed admissions status in the spring of their junior year, well prior to the fall deadlines for college applications. While many states have automatic admissions, Texas is unique in that automatic admissions is based solely on class rank, and in that automatically admitted students can attend any Texas four-year public university campus they choose.

"It has been suggested that low-income students tend to undermatch because they lack information about their college options," said Lincove. "Our results suggest that automatic admissions has the hidden benefit of overcoming that lack of information that discourages highly qualified, low-income students from applying to selective institutions where they could succeed."

A 2016 study by the authors found that automatic admissions status in Texas was also associated with higher rates of application to a flagship university among high-achieving black students, a group that is particularly underrepresented on those campuses.

"The difference in access to elite universities often begins with the student's application choice and the information she has about her college options," said Cortes. "Demystifying college admissions policy is a pathway to greater inclusion."

"In general, policies that can increase transparency about college admissions processes, including those that guarantee admissions based on clearly measured achievements, are likely to help resolve mismatch problems related to information gaps," Cortes said.

"It is unclear from our findings whether strategies such as active recruitment and publicizing generous financial aid policies could be as effective as admissions certainty in influencing application behavior among low-income applicants," added Lincove.

The study also looked at nonacademic types of student matching behavior. Most students prefer campuses with students of similar demographic, geographic, and socioeconomic background. Only highly qualified low-income students selected institutions where they had fewer same-race and same-income peers.

          Strange Fruit #156: The Conversations We Remember from 2015      Cache   Translate Page      
We're halfway through the first month of 2015, an there's been so much going on, we haven't yet had time to bring you a look back at the conversation we loved in 2015! On this week's show we listen back to some of those memorable stories and guests. But first, we go back even further to 2013, when Mark Anthony Neal joined us to talk about his book, "Looking for Leroy: Illegible Black Masculinites." Our chat with Dr. Neal has been on our minds lately in light of criticism against NFL player Odell Beckham Jr. (Complex magazine says they're "just not sure what to make" of videos of him dancing) for not adhering to stereotypical ideas about how a black man should act. Dancing, or his style of dancing at least, is one of those illegible black masculinities Dr. Neal spoke to us about. The last couple of years have been marked with what seems like a steady stream of police violence against unarmed black people. Early in 2015, Freddie Gray's name was added to the list of victims, and Baltimore activists took to the streets in protest. We spoke with hip-hop artist Born Devine about the unrest, and the history of community-police relations in Baltimore. One theme that seems to come up a lot on Strange Fruit is the idea that people who have been discriminated against should know better than to discriminate against other people or groups. But time and time again, we see this isn't the case. Our conversation with Victoria Syimone Taylor (aka DJ Syimone) last year made it obvious that queer spaces are not always safe spaces for queer people of color. 2015 brought the name Rachel Dolezal to our national attention. She's the NAACP chapter president from Spokane who was pretending to be African American. Debates sprang up about whether "trans-racial" was A Thing, and in the midst of all the think pieces, we turned to Dr. Yaba Blay, author of "(1)ne Drop: Shifting the Lens on Race," for some clarity. As 2015 drew to a close, the Netflix documentary "Making a Murderer" turned everyone's atteniton to injustices in the criminal justice system. Much earlier in the year, we'd been thinking about those issues ourselves, after meeting and speaking with Sabrina Butler Porter. She was wrongfully convicted of murdering her baby, and spent six years in prison — three on death row. We couldn't do a 2015 round-up without including one of our favorite new friends, Dr. Carol Anderson. She's an Associate Professor of African American Studies and history at Emory University, and she was in town to deliver the 9th Annual Anne Braden Memorial Lecture. We listen back to her brilliant explanation of how voter ID laws hurt people of color. And to wrap up today's look back, we revisit probably the most memorable episode for us this year: The day the Supreme Court decision made same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states. We held off on recording our show that week, hoping the decision would come down before we went into the studio, and it did. We spent that Friday at press conferences and the County Clerk's office, then came back and recorded our show, sometimes through tears (or in Jaison's case, as he claims, allergies). While we were at the County Clerk's office, we witness the first gay marriage in Louisville — possibly Kentucky. Today we listen back to some audio from that day. Happy Belated New Year, Fruitcakes! We have great things planned for 2016, so stay tuned, and keep in touch!
          Strange Fruit #117: Baltimore Rising, Black Jockeys in the Derby, and Unlearning Childhood Racism      Cache   Translate Page      
On Friday, state’s attorney for Baltimore, Marilyn J. Mosby, announced that six officers would be charged in the death of Freddie Gray. Mosby made the announcement soon after the medical examiner's report classified Gray's death as a homicide. This week, hip hop artist Born Divine (@borndivine) brings us a local perspective on this week's protesting in Baltimore, and a sense of how people are feeling in the middle of it. He says over-aggressive policing is a long-time issue there, and that only full-scale reform will solve it. "We're looking for justice from a system that was never created with us in mind to begin with," he says. "When the foundation is cracked on a house, what happens to the house? It falls apart. And until you fix that crack in the foundation, it's not going to get any better. It going to get worse." He says poverty and joblessness are to blame for some of the violence in Baltimore this week, and that despite some media reports, the vast majority of protesters have peaceful aims. "We're just trying to get justice," Divine says. "We don't want to tear the city down. We don't want a war with nobody. We don't want to beef with the officers. We just want justice." This week, we also spoke with author Jim Grimsley about his memoir, "How I Shed My Skin: Unlearning the Lessons of a Racist Childhood." Grimsely grew up in a small town in North Carolina, and was in sixth grade in 1966, the year federally-mandated integration of the schools went into effect. "I didn't really understand anything about the prejudice built into me until in the sixth grade, when three black girls came to my all white classroom," he says. He reacted by calling one of the girls a name, not expecting her to respond. She called him the same name back. "Then she looked at me and said you didn't think I'd say that did you?" His book recounts how those personal interactions challenged, and eventually overcame, the racist ideas he'd been raised with. "By encountering them, I came to understand that I had all kinds of racist programming in myself," he says. Many activists' attention was divided this week between the Supreme Court hearing on gay marriage, in Washington, and the unrest in Baltimore. Grimsley, himself a gay man, helps us parse out how black people and gay people are sometimes pitted against each other in what he calls a divide and conquer strategy. "You want to set them against each other and get them to quarrel against each other," he says, "because that way they're less effective at working to better themselves and to better their position, and to help one another out in their strategies to move toward equal rights with the white majority." We also shared with Grimsley some frustrations about this week's events. "It breaks my heart to see people misreading what's happening in Baltimore so deliberately," he says. "We've gone through this set of steps so may times just in the last two years [...] white people don't chime in until they see the anger and the violence, and then they start talking about the issue." And here at home, it's Derby Week! In our Juicy Fruit segment this week, we learn about the history of black jockeys in the Derby, and how their contributions to the sport are honored—or not—by racing fans today.

There's a lot going on out there, Fruitcakes, so this week, we give you a whole episode of Juicy Fruit, with special guest co-host, actress, Alexandria Sweatt. The death of Freddie Gray in police custody in Baltimore, and the shooting of Eric Harris by a volunteer Sheriff in Tulsa, are the latest in a string of black men killed by police. We look at the specifics of those cases, and how they're being handled by investigators and city leaders. We also take on lighter topics this week, like a new restaurant, Tallywackers, trying to bring the Hooters experience to a Dallas gayborhood. We couldn't let the week go by without addressing Gwyneth Paltrow's food stamp challenge, in which she purchased foods that would be neither accessible nor practical for actual people on government assistance. And the so-called Kylie Jenner challenge, which had Instagram users artificially plumping their lips in pictures, leads to a discussion about how black fashions, when adopted by white celebrities, are treated as new and groundbreaking. Remember when Marie Claire magazine breathlessly praised Kylie's "new epic" hairstyle... and it was cornrows?
          Strange Fruit #89: Unpacking White Privilege. Plus, America's Favorite Desserts!      Cache   Translate Page      
In the late 1990's, feminist and anti-racist activist Peggy McIntosh described white privilege as "an invisible weightless knapsack of assurances, tools, maps, guides, codebooks, passports, visas, clothes, compass, emergency gear, and blank checks." The invisible knapsack metaphor persists today as a way of introducing people to the concept of privilege. It comes in many forms - male, white, straight, cis, able-bodied, and other identities all confer certain benefits - but the suggestion of privilege can spark emotional denial. On this week's show we talk about white privilege and how it manifests itself in our culture, with Dr. David Owen. He's an associate professor of philosophy at UofL, and is on the local planning committee for the White Privilege Conference, coming to Louisville this Spring. In our Juicy Fruit Segment, we bring you the story of a hairstylist in Prince George's County in Maryland, who was fired when his HIV-positive status was discovered by his boss. We also dissect Sarah Silverman's controversial equal pay video (and the enduring phenomenon of the celebrity non-apology-apology), and how gay-friendly comics often miss the mark when they stray into race- or gender-related humor. And finally, we celebrate National Dessert Month! Jai goes through a list of the most popular desserts in the US and we try to guess what they are. Did we agree with the choices? Let's just say this week marks the first time the phrase "rot-gut dessert" was ever uttered on Strange Fruit.

          SF #84: Journalist Chris Tomlinson Explores His Family's Relationship with Slavery & Its Legacy      Cache   Translate Page      
“There are black people in town who have the same last name as me, and I never thought about why that might be.” Author Chris Tomlinson says he hears that a lot while touring for his recent book, called Tomlinson Hill: The Remarkable Story of Two Families Who Share the Tomlinson Name—One White, One Black. In it, he traces his family’s history to a cotton plantation in Texas, and reaches out to another Tomlinson family whose ancestors were held as slaves there. Slavery is a topic that brings up strong feelings in Americans, because as Chris points out, it was part of our country’s economic and social as recently as five generations ago. But he says it wasn’t white guilt that motivated his work on the book. “I’m not asking forgiveness for what my great grandfather did,” he says. “On the other hand, I do have an obligation to recognize the privilege that I have because my ancestors oppressed people.” Chris says slavery, the Jim Crow era, and the institutionalized racism that has always been present in the United States have afforded white people unfair advantages, and it isn’t helpful to ignore that reality. “Until 1964, no white member of my family ever had to compete with a person of color to get a job or to get a privilege. And even today I can go places and I’m treated in a different way.” Tomlinson Hill is a fascinating look at how the remnants of slavery are still present in our every day lives—sometimes even our last names. In our Juicy Fruit segment this week, we talk about Ray Rice, former running back for the Baltimore Ravens who was released from the team after TMZ posted video this week of him physically attacking his then-girlfriend in an elevator. The assault happened in March, but at the time, Rice received only a two-game suspension. Accounts differ about whether the NFL saw the footage then, or not until this week. Rice and his girlfriend were married subsequent to the attack, spurring understandable concern from experts and survivors (domestic violence rarely happens just once, and usually escalates with each incident). Others blamed Janay Rice for staying with and marrying the man who had knocked her unconscious. Financial scholar and commentator (and Louisville native) Dr. Boyce Watkins penned an open letter to Janay Rice, praising her for her decision to stay with her abuser. We read an excerpt from his letter on this week’s show—specifically this passage, which was widely scorned on social media: For every woman who made the mistake of staying in a relationship with a perpetually abusive man, there is another woman who is glad she made the choice to keep her family together. Some will call these women stupid or the product of male manipulation; I call them heroes, ultimate mothers, and powerful people. At the very least, women deserve to have a say in what happens to their families without paternalistic eavesdroppers forcing them to do something they don’t want to do. With black families being torn apart left and right by the pitfalls of extreme feminism, we should appreciate situations where someone isn’t seeking to throw the baby out with the bathwater and destroying their family at the drop of a hat. Dr. Story points out that while most domestic and sexual violence is intra-racial, black women feel pressure to excuse the violence visited upon them by black men. “Black women have been living with these things in silence for fear that if they air it, they’re somehow race traitors or they’re selling their man out.” She calls for black male thinkers and writers to speak up when high-profile black men commit violent crimes against black women. “You got contempt for Darren Wilson? You need to have contempt for Ray Rice,” she explains. “Both parties felt as if it was their right to be able to do anything they wanted to a black body.”

National Federation of the Blind and Disability Rights North Carolina Sue UNC Health Care and Nash UNC Health Care

Lawsuit Alleges Discrimination Against Blind Patients

Raleigh, North Carolina (December 3, 2018): The UNC Health Care System, Nash UNC Health Care, and contractors systematically discriminate against blind patients in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Rehabilitation Act, and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, according to a lawsuit filed today. The lawsuit, brought by the National Federation of the Blind and Disability Rights North Carolina along with individual blind plaintiffs, alleges that blind patients do not receive critical communications in alternate formats - such as Braille, large print, or electronic documents - only standard print. This causes financial and personal hardships for blind patients and does not allow them to keep their medical information private.

For instance, according to the lawsuit, Plaintiff John Bone is a blind patient who visited Nash General Hospital for emergency medical care services on two separate occasions. Each visit, he informed the hospital that he was blind and needed to receive all his medical bills in Braille. Mr. Bone instead received all the bills in print, and he did not know how much money he owed or even to whom he owed money until collection agencies pursued and threatened him. Mr. Bone seeks to receive medical bills in Braille, so he can pay his bills without accruing late fees, enduring harassment from creditors, and having his credit score needlessly damaged.

Another plaintiff named in the lawsuit visits a UNC Health Care provider at least once every six months and needs documents formatted in large print in order to read them. During his medical visits, he is forced to sign forms he cannot read and receives visit summaries, follow-up medical instructions, and bills all in standard print. This patient often must share personal medical information with third parties to understand and follow medical instructions. He seeks to keep his medical information private, which he can do if he receives documents in large print.

“Blind people need and deserve the same privacy and independence in managing our healthcare that sighted patients take for granted,” said Mark Riccobono, President of the National Federation of the Blind. “In some cases, the ability to receive information in formats we can use can make a life-or-death difference. With today’s technology, providing bills, medical records, and treatment instructions in alternative formats is readily achievable, and all providers have a moral and legal obligation to do so.”

“We are representing blind individuals in North Carolina because the failure to effectively communicate with them violates their legal rights, increases their chances of incurring fines and damaging their credit scores, disregards their need for independence and privacy, and puts their very health at risk,” said Virginia Knowlton Marcus, Executive Director of Disability Rights NC, and “health care industries have the responsibility to know and do better.”

The plaintiffs are represented by the attorneys of Disability Rights NC and the Baltimore law firm of Brown, Goldstein & Levy LLP.

          Proteo Media + Performance's SEPARATE OCEANS Premieres At Theaterlab January 18-20      Cache   Translate Page      

Separate Oceans, a new evening-length performance work produced by Proteo Media + Performance and choreographed by Kathleen Kelley, makes its premiere January 18-20th at Theaterlab as a part of the TLAB Shares program. Making parallels between digital spaces and the rhythms of the natural world, Separate Oceans examines virtual systems of emotion and affect. It incorporates dancing, live video feed, and projections that all draw inspiration from the ways humans increasingly depend on digital systems for desire and fulfillment. Separate Oceans features collaborators/performers Bree Breeden, Jennifer Campbell, Maddie Schimmel, and Lauren Vermilion supported by lighting designer Amanda K. Ringger, costume designer Maddie Schimmel, and projections designed by Proteo Media.

Proteo Media has been developing Separate Oceans for the past year with residency support by Chez Bushwick/Jonah Bokaer Artist-in-Residence program and a works-in-progress performance with the South Mountain Conservancy. The evening-length work will utilize live feed video streamed from iPhones, simulating the ways we live online (such as Snapchat, FaceTime, and Instagram), and will feature projection designs that evoke the increasing separation between the natural and digital worlds. These images are overlaid on a movement vocabulary that echoes the rhythms and structures of natural systems such as ocean wave patterns, animal movements, and cellular movement and division.

Separate Oceans evokes a specifically queer understanding of futurity by drawing connections between the natural and the virtual worlds. It explores the apparent emotional disconnect between beings in face-to-face communication as the dominant method of contact nowadays occurs via the phone screen. The ways our bodies connect to each other in this world has changed, especially due to the isolation, rage, and fear evoked by the current political landscape and the hope (and despair) of digital spaces. As culture moves towards affective computing and digitized emotional realities, our bodies are becoming enmeshed with computational algorithms to create feedback loops between ourselves and our virtual systems. "Likes", hearts, pictures, texts, stories, and comments can create a rich digital container for connection, but often at the expense of physical or embodied experiences or a sense of physical belonging. Kelley says, "I am interested in what this idea of digital affect does to the body's lived experiences. How can we create meaning from the body when we escape it so often?"

The rehearsal process has been a collaboration between director and dancers as the artists have focused on developing studio practices that can allow space for each dancer's individual physical perspectives and can ground the conceptual ideas into physical action. Kelley pushes her creative work to embody rather than represent, and is interested in work that is grounded in the real but "adds intensity, intention, and investment to the neutral indifference of the real" (Elizabeth Grosz, Becoming Undone: Darwinian Reflections on Life, Politics and Art).

Come to Theaterlab at 357 West 36th Street 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10018 to experience an immersive digital reality as told through movement and projections by Proteo Media. Shows are January 18th and 19th at 8 pm, and January 20th at 3 pm. Tickets are $20 general and $18 for students and seniors, and available for purchase here: web.ovationtix.com/trs/pe.c/10357241.

          12/5 Through the 1940’s: Big Poison Released; Westlake, LaPalme, Fiddler, Adams Become Bucs; HBD Pink, Bill, Snake & Frank      Cache   Translate Page      
  • 1868 - C Frank Bowerman was born in Romeo, Michigan. He spent a couple of his 15 pro seasons, 1898-99, in Pittsburgh, batting .265 while throwing out 49.5% of attempted base stealers and also playing 1B. But Bowerman had a hair trigger temper, once giving manager Fred Clarke a shiner during a brawl, and incidents like that led to a short stay in the Steel City. 
Snake Wiltse 1902 (photo via Library of Congress)
  • 1871 - LHP Lewis “Snake” Wiltse was born in Bouckville, New York. He began his brief three-year stay in the show with Pittsburgh in 1901. Snake put up a line of 1-4/4.26 and was released in July, signing with the Philly Athletics. He also tossed for the Orioles and NY Highlanders before being sent down in May of 1903, then toiling in the minors through the 1910 campaign. Wiltse might have done better as a position player. His MLB line from the hill was 29-31/4.59, but at the plate he compiled a .278 lifetime BA; Baltimore played him at first, in the OF and even at second base once. Snake got his nickname in the minors thx to his twisty delivery. Wiltse family tree roots: Snake’s brother was George “Hooks” Wiltse, who pitched for 12 big-league seasons. Hooks featured a killer curve but earned his moniker because he caught everything as a fielder, showing off great “hooks” (hands). 
  • 1872 - RHP Emerson “Pink” Hawley was born in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. He tossed for Pittsburgh from 1895-97 with a slash line of 71-61 and a 3.76 ERA. He was a workhorse, appearing in 56 games in 1895 while throwing 444-⅓ innings, both league-leading numbers. Pink was a stand up guy, once turning down a bribe to throw a game. But he came from good stock. His ancestor was the noted essayist Major Joseph Hawley, who joined with Samuel Adams and James Otis, Jr., as a revolutionary leader during the Stamp Act/Boston Tea Party era. Pink is his given middle name; he was part of a set of twins, and his family, as the story goes, put a blue ribbon on his brother and a pink one on Emerson so they could tell them apart. Fact of the day: The ribbon color really didn’t mean much. Up until the baby boomers came along, baby’s clothes colors were either considered sex-neutral or if anything, the opposite of today, with pink for boys and blue for girls. 
  • 1922 - OF Bill Rodgers was born in Harrisburg. Bill was a wartime special - he played for the Bucs from 1944-45, got into three games and went 2-for-5 with one run scored. Rodgers was drafted by the New York Yankees in 1946, but never again made it to the major leagues, spending nine years on various farm clubs. 
  • 1922 - The Pirates sent RHP Fred “Sheriff” Blake, OF Ray Rohwer and $15,000 to Seattle of the Pacific Coast League for IF Spencer Adams. After a year with Seattle, Blake went on to pitch nine MLB seasons while Rowher became a PCL fixture, playing in the league through 1931. Adams spent a year in Pittsburgh (.250 BA in 56 AB) before being traded back to the PCL (Oakland this time), and later played three more big league seasons as a backup.
Paul Waner 1989 Pacific Legends
  • 1940 - Paul Waner was released by the Pirates. The Hall of Fame OF’er played 15 seasons in Pittsburgh, hitting .340 with 2,868 hits, 1,627 runs and 1,309 RBI. A party hearty type, Waner was famous for his ability to hit hung over. He gave up the bottle for a year in 1938 at management’s request, and only hit .280, the first time he failed to reach .300+. Needless to say, the teetotaler experiment ended after that campaign. Another bit of lore was that the Bucs discovered he was nearsighted late in his career and made him wear glasses. He gave those up when he found the large fuzzy object he had been swinging at all those years turned into a small spinning BB that was nearly impossible to hit when he had his peepers on. Paul and his younger brother Lloyd (Little Poison), one of baseball’s premier sibling duos, hold the career record for hits by brothers with 5,611. 
  • 1946 - The Bucs sent Johnny Hutchings and $35,000 to Oakland of the PCL for OF Wally Westlake. Wally spent 1947-51 as the Bucs starting outfielder, mostly in center and right, hitting .281 with one All-Star nod before being traded to St. Louis. He played through 1956, although he only had one strong season after he left the Pirates. It was a busy day; they also swapped LHP Al Gerheauser to the St. Louis Browns for IF Eddie “The Fiddler” Basinski. Al worked one more season and The Fiddler hit .199 for the Bucs in his final MLB campaign. Finally, they sold OF Tommy O’Brien to the Cards. He spent four years in the minors, then came back for parts (61 games total) of two final MLB tours in 1949-50. 
  • 1949 - The Bucs took LHP Paul LaPalme from the Boston Braves in the minor league draft. Lefty gave the Bucs four years of service, slashing 14-33-2/4.99 for the terrible Pirates clubs of the early fifties. LaPalme went to the Cards after the ‘54 season, and was converted to a reliever. He lasted three more years, and with better teams and a consistent role, put up a line of 10-12-11/3.29.

          WOW LONDON 2019 Programme Announced      Cache   Translate Page      

The WOW Foundation has today announced plans for London 2019, in the build up to further activity across the UK and the rest of the world over the next two years. The London events, taking place 8-9 March, over International Women's Day, include talks with legendary activist and writer Angela Davis, award-winning journalist and author Naomi Klein as well as the launch of major new international anthology New Daughters of Africa edited by Margaret Busby. The programme also features events with Jo Brand and Catherine Mayer, and two global conversations WOW presents: What Now? and WOW presents: What Next? bringing together thousands of women from across all industries and communities to imagine and debate the future of gender equality. Tickets are on sale to Southbank Centre Members from today and to the public tomorrow, 6 December. There will be over 500 tickets available to schools.

The announcement marks the beginning of WOW's next chapter as an independent organisation and an international movement. Founded and led by Jude Kelly, former Artistic Director at Southbank Centre, The WOW Foundation will work to build and sustain a movement that believes a gender equal world is possible and desirable through Festivals, and events that empower women and girls. Kelly left the Southbank Centre to lead the WOW movement, having overseen its rapid growth over the last decade and recognising its potential power to drive global change in attitudes towards gender. WOW 2019 will comprise a series of eight major events, calling upon the WOW community to take stock of where equality is now and what is next, ahead of their 10-year anniversary in 2020. The WOW London events are designed to inspire, reflect and provoke and will subsequently be rolled out in discussion format across the length of the UK in 2019. Through the programme they will investigate what the next decade of WOW needs to look like if we are to achieve the 2030 UN sustainable goal around equality.

WOW Founder Jude Kelly said: "A seismic change in global women's affairs is coming about and we feel that everyone needs to be part of building a new gender equal world. In pursuit of this the WOW movement, now a charitable foundation, is accelerating across the world - with 2 million people involved in festivals in 30 countries across 5 continents - more and more people want to celebrate the lives and achievements of women and urge gender justice forward. The WOW Festivals, Think Ins, Wowser Girls Clubs and our growing International Leaders Forum have established WOW as the most significant convener of women across the globe."

Over the last 9 years the Festivals have developed a reputation as a space where world renowned artists, performers, and political and social activists such as Malala Yousafzai, Leymah Gbowee, Lupita Nyong'o, Annie Lennox, Patrick Stewart, Baroness Doreen Lawrence and Salma Hayek come and participate, alongside thousands of people of all genders to celebrate achievements and discuss solutions together. The unique Festival model creates ways for participants and campaigners, women and men, to take part in WOW, to amplify their own causes, or start new initiatives which have a wide impact on communities. It has resulted in hundreds of gender equality initiatives over the past decade, for example: the Women's Equality Party was founded at the Festival by Sandi Toksvig and Catherine Mayer; Nimco Ali's campaign to raise awareness around Female Genital Mutilation first found significant platform at the festival and the formation of Girls Rock London, running rock camps for girls and women in London.

To date, WOW has reached over 2 million people in 17 countries on 5 continents across more than 60 festivals including in Australia, Brazil, China, Egypt, Finland, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Somaliland, the USA and across the UK. Next, WOW will be in Karachi, Dhaka, New York, Beijing and Atlanta, as well as Istanbul, Baltimore and Shanghai in 2020. It is the biggest, most comprehensive and most significant festival dedicated to connecting the stories of women and girls to active change making globally.

During the day on Friday 8 March and Saturday 9 March 2019 WOW will present What Now? and What Next?, led by Kelly. The events will look at the current state of the nation for women and girls, and then ask what the future looks like. In WOW presents: What Now? inspirational speakers, performers and thinkers will look at the ideas that matter to women and girls (cisgender, transgender and gender non-binary) and the men and boys who support them, from the toughest realities, to the greatest triumphs, in a world that is changing very quickly through politics, technology and cultural norms. It will look at everything from violence and money to wellbeing, to what it means to live with sexism and racism, disability, homophobia and transphobia. Kelly and guests will look at what women all over the world, from Cardiff to Karachi, Bradford to Baltimore and Australia to the Americas care about most, right now. WOW presents: What Next? asks what the future looks like in an age of hyper connectivity, extreme ideas and political turmoil. Across the afternoon audiences will hear from the women helping to imagine - and create - an equal world.

On Friday evening, activist Angela Davis will be in conversation with Kelly following her legendary sold out in conversation at WOW London in 2017 on women, race and class in the post-Trump era. Also on Friday, WOW will present the Women on the Move Awards 2019 celebrating leadership from migrant and refugee women in partnership with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency and Migrants Organise Ltd. Jo Brand, one of the UK's best loved comedians, joins Friday's lineup with Born Lippy: How To Do Female, challenging stereotypes, unpacking what it means to be female and refusing to remain silent.

On Saturday evening, in her first major engagement since being appointed the inaugural Gloria Steinem Endowed Chair in Media, Culture and Feminist Studies at Rutgers University-New Brunswick, journalist, activist and author Naomi Klein will be in conversation with Kelly, taking a close look at the political and media landscape at this critical time for women, human rights, economic justice and climate change. Also on the Saturday, WOW will launch New Daughters of Africa, edited by Margaret Busby. Twenty-five years ago, the collection Daughters of Africa was published to international acclaim. The new work builds on this tradition for a new generation of women writers and the landscape of African women's writing today. A portrayal of the accomplishments of over 200 contributors, it celebrates their global sweep, diversity and achievements while also testifying to a wealth of genres. To launch this new publication, WOW will bring together leading contributors to honour a unifying heritage and range of creativity of women from the African diaspora. Also on Saturday evening, Women's Equality Party co-founder and writer Catherine Mayer examines how debates have become so damagingly polarised in a funny, freewheeling show on soundbite culture Catherine Mayer: FFS.

WOW London takes place by arrangement with Southbank Centre.

          Predicting studs and duds for NFL Week 14      Cache   Translate Page      
We kick off NFL Week 14 by first congratulating the Los Angeles Rams for becoming the first team to clinch their division. With that being said, the Rams will look to continue their hot streak on the road against one of the league’s tougher defenses this Sunday. Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys are in must-win mode when they host their divisional rival Philadelphia Eagles. A certain running back should record some off-the-charts numbers in this matchup. In the AFC, the Kansas City Chiefs offense might be tested when the Baltimore Ravens arrive at Arrowhead Stadium. If the 10-2 Chiefs fall, it would open up the door for three other AFC franchises — all 9-3 — to tighten the gap. This leads to our stud and dud predictions for NFL Week 14. Stud: Michael Thomas, wide receiver, New Orleans Saints Thomas has been pretty vanilla in his past two games. But, he has an excellent chance of breaking his low-yardage, non-scoring streak in his upcoming matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The last time Thomas played the

Two More Isabella Restaurants Could Close Disgraced chef Mike Isabella should just throw in the towel as his empire continues to crumble following a sexual harassment lawsuit by former employee Chloe Caras that he settled in federal court last May. First he lost several partners including his long-time public relations firm. Then his first restaurant, Graffiato in Chinatown, closed along with Requin Brasserie in Fairfax, Graffiato Richmond and Isabella Eatery in Tysons Corner – all for not paying rent. His company was forced to file Chapter 11 bankruptcy in September after being sued by several landlords for back rent. To raise funds, he had to sell his 2,000-square-foot Wharf condo in the luxe Vio building for sale for $2.7 million. To add insult to injury, his business partners – who were also listed in the sexual harassment lawsuit – issued a statement indicating that Isabella would be stepping away from the company, although he denied it through his new spokesman. On Saturday, Kapnos Taverna at the Hotel at the University of Maryland, 7777 Baltimore Ave., College Park, closed. As part of his bankruptcy restructuring, he had to surrender the space to the landlord, Southern Management, which had sued for back rent. Now we learn that both Arroz, 901 Massachusetts Ave. NW, in the Marriott Marquis across from the convention center and the original Kapnos, 2201 14th St. NW, have also been sue by their landlords for back rent. Quadrangle Development, Arroz’s landlord, filed a motion in early November to compel the restaurant to pay more than $36,000 in rend owed for November. The judge ordered Arroz to make the payment by Dec. 1 or the could would hold another hearing. The order also allowed Quadrangle to seek a new tenant for the space provided there is not public advertisement of the space being leased. And Simpson Property Group LP, the landlord for Kapnos at 14th and W Streets NW, filed its own motion to compel payment of rent last Tuesday, claiming more than $38,000 it is owned in November rent and utilities. The motion also asked the court to order the restaurant to pay its December rent in a “timely” manner. Isabella’s spokesman declined to comment. Pizzeria Paradiso opens in Spring Valley Pizzeria Paradiso opened its fifth restaurant on Monday at 4850 Massachusetts Ave. NW in the Spring Valley neighborhood. Eric Gronning of Gronning Architects designed the 179-seat restaurant including the largest outdoor space of all the pizzeria’s locations. The new location features two pinball machines, Pirates of the Caribbean and the Simpsons, and two video games. A custom mural by artist and Stillwater Brewery label designer Mike Van Hall along with pizza art from the children at partner, ArtWorksNow, adorn the walls. There is an outdoor draft rail for the 60-seat patio, where guests can enjoy local brews in the warmer months. The new location boasts a D.C.-centric beer and cider list. It opened with 14 rotating taps and a wide selection of bottled beers. Two selections each from six D.C. breweries will be featured alongside a cider from each of the District’s two cideries. The offerings include Brau Pils and Sugar Leaf Hazy IPA from D.C. Brau, Barch 500 and Lovely Nomad from Atlas Brew Works, Corn Rigs and Barley and Raised by Wolves from Right Proper Brewing, Farmhouse Saison and Ruby, My Dear from Mad Fox Brewing, Southern Belle and ‘Bout That Life from 3 Stars Brewing and Red Line and Double Chazzwazzer from Hellbender Brewing. Available ciders include Greening from ANXO and Touch of Wisdom from Supreme Core. Pizzeria Paradiso favorites like the margherita and quattro formaggi are staples on the menu, in addition to some of the more unique offerings such as the Atomica made with Paradiso tomato sauce, salami, kalamata olives, hot pepper flakes and mozzarella; the Di Mare topped with spicy garlic pesto, mussels, shrimp, spinach, red onions, and grana Padano; or the Paesana made with spicy garlic pesto, house-made chicken sausage, sweet red peppers, roasted escarole, broccoli rabe, mozzarella and ricotta. Pizzas are $12-$15 for a 9-inch and $18-$21 for a 12-inch. Pizzeria Paridiso Spring Valley is open from 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m.-11:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. On Friday and Saturday, the bar stays open until midnight. Bombay Club celebrates 30th anniversary all month long In 1998, Ashok Bajaj of Knightsbridge Restaurant Group opened his first Washington restaurant upon his arriving in the city, The Bombay Club, 815 Connecticut Ave. NW. This December marks The restaurant’s 30th birthday. Bajaj had to convince the landlord that the nation’s capital was ready for a fine dining Indian restaurant three decades ago, and today it is still considered one of the city’s best establishments. A complimentary glass of champagne will be presented to all guests who dine at the restaurant during the month of December. Also, for its diamond anniversary celebration, it will feature a $65 four-course, prix fixe menu featuring a selection of classic Indian dishes during the entire month. These dishes have rotated on and off the restaurant’s menu since its opening, due to their popularity and requests by guests.

          "Fortnite es como una droga": algunos colegios alertan de serios problemas con la educación de los niños por estar enganchados al juego      Cache   Translate Page      

El fenómeno 'Fortnite' ha sido uno de los más importantes del año. Según las previsiones, tiene una base de jugadores activos de más de 130 millones y ha sido capaces de generar más de tres millones de dólares al día. Sin embargo la explosión de este juego también está provocando varias quejas y problemas derivados en los colegios.

Tal es así, que centros como el Colegio El Limonar han emitido un comunicado apelando a que los padres controlen el tiempo de acceso a las pantallas y supervisen el juego que según ellos tiene enganchados a gran parte de sus alumnos.

El furor de 'Fortnite' preocupa en diversos colegios

Fortnite Baile

'Fortnite' es un juego que consiste en un mapa donde los jugadores intentan que los demás mueran antes que ellos. Pero no es un juego propiamente violento. En parte gracias a sus colores llamativos, bailes divertidos y personajes que recuerdan a los dibujos animados. Aunque no son estos factores lo que preocupan al profesorado de algunos colegios. En el juego las partidas son cortas, normalmente de unos 20 minutos. Eso alienta a los jugadores probar suerte una y otra vez, lo que al final puede llegar a causar adicción. Un problema que la OMS ya reconoce como enfermedad.

En la carta realizada por el profesorado del colegio de Málaga se recogen algunas de las conclusiones de la comunidad educativa respecto a 'Fortnite'. Comentan que llevan un tiempo observando a su alumnado de Secundaria y el último ciclo de Primaria y "han detectado un deterioro significativo en el rendimiento académico y en sus relaciones con sus iguales". Un juego de moda que está arrasando entre pequeños y mayores, pese a que como comentan su temática no es especialmente novedosa.

Colegio Carta Inicio del comunicado a las familias realizado por el colegio El Limonar, en Málaga, respecto al fenómeno 'Fortnite'.

Según recoge el comunicado del colegio, Álvaro Bilbao, Doctor en Psicología de la Salud del Hospital Johns Hopkins (Baltimore) y colaborador de la OMS, manifiesta que este tipo de juegos también afectaría al interés que los pequeños prestan a determinadas cosas:

Las nuevas tecnologías, los videojuegos sobre todo o estar mirando cosas en Internet continuamente, hacen que el niño esté constantemente estimulado y tiene menos oportunidad de ejercer autocontrol, porque todo el control lo lleva la máquina. Si los estímulos a los que está expuesto son muy intensos, muy rápidos, como en los videojuegos, el niño puede perder el interés por cosas que son un poco más lentas o menos intensas, como la maestra, la pizarra, un libro o jugar en la calle con los amigos; el niño se acostumbra a tener estímulos muy rápidos y cuando bajan de velocidad se empieza a aburrir.

Un caso relacionado que llamó la atención de los medios hace unos meses fue el del colegio de Devon, en el suroeste de Inglaterra. La escuela prohibió el baile más famoso de 'Fortnite', el "floss dance", porque intimidaba a los más pequeños. En aquel caso, algunos padres del centro y otros de fuera, se habrían colocado en contra de la medida.

Otros colegios como el Widden Primary School ofrecen guías para padres acerca de 'Fortnite', donde se puede leer que el juego es tremendamente adictivo. Mientras que en escuelas como las de Gloucester o Cheltenham, en Reino Unido, ya se ha escrito a los padres para avisar de arrebatos de ira y enfados por el juego.

Exclusión y riesgo de engaños por parte de desconocidos

Lol

Además de su capacidad adictiva y poder jugarse gratis a través de todo tipo de dispositivos, hay otro elemento extra que está impulsando a 'Fortnite'. Muchos maestros, expertos y los mismos padres son conscientes de los nuevos referentes de los más pequeños. Algunos de los Youtubers más famosos promocionan el juego y hacen referencias a él, consiguiendo no solo ser el centro de la atención sino provocando que aquellos que no juegan se puedan sentir excluidos al no conocer el juego. Para hacernos una idea de su alcance, jóvenes jugadores profesionales de fútbol como Griezmann o Dembelé o de Basquet como Luka Doncic también son reconocidos jugadores de 'Fortnite'.

Esta popularidad ha llevado a colegios como el de Andalucía a escribir por carta alarmando a los padres sobre este fenómeno. Según la carta del colegio El Limonar, el juego estaría "generando dificultad de autocontrol, menos tolerancia a la frustración y normalización de conductas agresivas". De manera relacionada, desde el centro y otras plataformas como la NCA alertan que estos Battle Royale son una puerta abierta al "grooming", término que se utiliza cuando desconocidos se acercan a los niños para ganarse su confianza.

Otros educadores sin embargo ven 'Fortnite' como una oportunidad

Fortnite Play

¿Cómo pueden los padres evitar los peligros de este nuevo fenómeno? Es una tarea difícil, pero según recomienda Mora-Cantallops, "participando en el juego para entenderlo; no es tanto un control sobre lo que se hace como hablar un mismo idioma". Es decir, no sería tanto un problema de control sobre la tablet, el móvil o el ordenador sino entender a qué dedica el tiempo el niño y advertirle de los posibles problemas que podría encontrarse.

Además de establecer un control parental, algunos profesores y educadores ven en el auge de 'Fortnite' como una oportunidad más para enseñar los valores correctos. En la misma dirección se encuentra Chris Ferguson, profesor de psicología de la Universidad de Stetson y autor de estudios que muestran cómo el uso de videojuegos violentos no es un factor de riesgo para los más jóvenes.

Introduction Text

The greatest civilization of ancient times expired more than 1,500 years ago but the lessons to be learned from its experience are eternal. In this lecture, Mr. Reed will focus on the Roman Republic—the key features, personalities and events that defined its rise as well as those that caused its decay in the First Century B.C. into an imperial autocracy. Many of the trends of our day echo those of the ancient Republic, which make its lessons all the more relevant, even pressing, for us now.

Registration coming soon.

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



Baltimore Ravens - Oakland Raiders 34:17

Mit dem ersten Drive bei den Baltimore Ravens bewiesen die Oakland Raiders, dass sie gewillt waren, auch schwere Auswärtsspiele zu gewinnen. In über sechs Minuten überquerte Quarterback Derek Carr mit seiner Offense das Feld und Running Back Doug Martin flog über den letzten Yard in die Endzone. Das Heimteam konnte umgehend mit einem Field Goal von Jason Tucker aus 47 Yard kontern und holten im zweiten Quarter nach einem Punt Return Touchdown über 70 Yard von Cyrus Jones die Führung. Diese wurde mit einem Field Goal aus 28 Yard zum 13: 7 ausgebaut. Ihre sich steigernden Spielanteile konnten die Ravens aber nicht wie gewünscht umsetzen, da Safety Reggie Nelson den Ball von Quarterback Lamar Jackson abfing und die Raiders ebenfalls ein Field Goal durch Kicker Daniel Carlson aus 42 Yard erzielten. Baltimore hatte trotzdem nochmals die Möglichkeit auf Punkte, allerdings warf Jackson seine zweite Interception in der Endzone und die Raiders blieben mit dem Pausenstand von 10:13 dran. Viel konzentrierter agierten die Ravens dann im dritten Quarter. Mit dem Ballbesitz marschierte der Angriff über das Feld und Jackson selber lief die letzten fünf Yard in die Endzone. Die Raiders antworteten jedoch direkt mit einem Touchdown, welchen Tight End Jared Cook spektakulär über 16 Yard von Carr fing. Wie zuvor ging Baltimore erneut zeitfressend und effektiv über das Feld. Der Drive endete im vierten Quarter mit einem Pass von Jackson über acht Yard zu dem ehemaligen Raiders Wide Receiver Michael Crabtree, der ungedeckt in die Endzone kam. Oakland gab sich Mühe, den Spielstand von 17:27 nochmals zu verkürzen. Leider kam es sehr unglücklich für die Gäste, als Carr von Linebacker Matthew Judon gesackt wurde, dabei den Ball verlor, den Linebacker Terrell Suggs ungehindert über 43 Yard zum Touchdown trug. Mit 34:17 mussten sich die Raiders den Ravens geschlagen geben... 


Die Defense konnte trotz zwei abgefangenen Bällen die Ravens nicht stoppen...

          Will the Packers Be a Top Destination for Head Coach Candidates?      Cache   Translate Page      

What many considered to be the inevitable happened a lot earlier than expected when Mike McCarthy was relieved of his head coaching duties following the ugly home loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.  While the firing coming mid-season was certainly a surprise to many and out of character for the Packers organization, the decision to cut ties with McCarthy is probably a blessing in disguise to him and also to the franchise as well.

As the Packers embark on their first head coach search since the 2006 offseason, Mark Murphy made it pretty clear in his Monday press conference that the franchise would be waiting until the conclusion of the season to finalize the decision of their next head coach.  But that doesn’t mean that the wish list can’t be compiled by Murphy and GM Brian Gutekunst now. 

More importantly, the vacancy at 1265 Lombardi Avenue gives top-tier candidates the early chance to ponder the pros and cons of coaching the Green Bay Packers into the future.  And while this hire will ultimately be a huge factor in the direction of the franchise for the remainder of the Aaron Rodgers era in Green Bay and hopefully beyond, Mark Murphy and the organization need to project their best foot forward for the candidates they will try to woo to be the next head coach of the storied Packers franchise.  

Just like in any other business or industry, an organization looking to hire the best talent for a job comes down to a mutual fit for both parties.  Murphy and company will be looking for the best fit and talent moving forward and the candidates that are interviewing will be looking at the same things as well.  From the candidate’s perspective, let’s take a look at what they’ll potentially be weighing as the Packers look to hire the coach of their future.

As with any job search, competition between employers is always a factor for job candidates and it is no different for head coaches in the NFL.  Outside of the Green Bay opening and the current opening in Cleveland, other potential openings will be left to speculate over the coming month or so.  With a known opening in Cleveland, a new head coach would be coming into a situation with a surging young team and a GM that has shown he is willing to go out and find the missing pieces to the puzzle on the team.  These factors are certainly attractive. 

If Tampa Bay gives Dirk Koetter the ax at the end of the season, a tough division, a roster not brimming with talent and a rumored GM change don’t make that potential highly attractive.  If the Dallas Cowboys were to falter down the stretch, Jason Garrett could be ousted as the head coach and working for “America’s Team” under a meddling owner surely has its upside and downside.  Other coaches on the potential hot seat are Todd Bowles with the New York Jets, Vance Joseph in Denver, John Harbaugh in Baltimore, Doug Marrone in Jacksonville and Steve Wilks in Arizona.  All are potential jobs that the highest profile candidates would be considering over the job in Green Bay.

When potential head coaching candidates then take a deeper look at the Green Bay Packers organization and list their positives and negatives for the gig, the beauty will lie all in the eye of the beholder when they look at all aspects of the current state of the franchise.

To start, having Aaron Rodgers under contract with the potential for five more great years will certainly be eye-catching to most.  For a young, upstart coach, a chance to lead a team with Rodgers under center certainly puts them a leg up on a lot of the competition when looking to make a name for themselves in the league.  But, will candidates look into the potential souring relationship that Rodgers had with Mike McCarthy and be scared away from the chance to coach the Packers? 

Another internal consideration head coaching candidates will face is the current state of the roster in Green Bay.  The talent is there on the offensive side of the ball in spots and some promise exists on the defensive side of the ball.  When factoring in other potential openings, the Packers overall state of the roster is relatively healthy when compared to the other teams and should be a bright spot to potential candidates.

Head coach contenders for the Packers job must also consider the history, culture and location of the franchise.  Lambeau Field and the rich Packers history certainly put the Packers above most of their competition and the rabid fanbase helps make the job appealing to all.  But the question must be asked if the city of Green Bay and the small market scare away high profile candidates that would be more enticed by higher-profile markets like New York or Phoenix.

The final unique piece of the Green Bay Packers puzzle for potential candidates is the newly developed power structure in 2017.  What was originally played by Mark Murphy as a communication stop-gap in the organization, the decision to have the head coach and GM reporting directly to Murphy as team president was certainly a new direction based on how other franchises operate their organizational chart at the top.  Based on Monday’s press conference, GM Brian Gutekunst will be involved in the process of hiring the new coach with the final say still falling in Murphy’s hands.  And while we may not know the fine details of the relationships between President, GM and coach with the Packers organization, how it works may be a key factor in a candidate finding the Packers job appealing or not.  Candidates interviewing in Green Bay will surely have this as one of their top questions during interviews and Mark Murphy needs to be able to make this relationship both clear and appealing to any coach interviewing for the job.

With all of the internal and external factors being considered by head coaching candidates, I think the Packers will have the most desirable position in the league for many reasons.  While any head coaching job comes with some difficult territory, the gig in Green Bay will provide the new coach with some challenges and it is in Mark Murphy’s hands to find that candidate that best suits the franchise.  Over the coming weeks, and really having started already, the candidate rumor mill for the Packers will be running at full steam.  Hope really does spring eternal for Packers organization as they embark on their first head coach in almost 13 years and us as a fanbase wait in anticipation for the next leader of the team to be hired.

          Review Roundup: Critics Weigh In On INDECENT at Arena Stage      Cache   Translate Page      

Arena Stage presents Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel's thought-provoking play Indecent. Inspired by the 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch's Yiddish drama The God of Vengeance, and the controversy that surrounded its themes of censorship, immigration and anti-Semitism, Vogel explores the behind-the-scenes story of the courageous artists who risked their careers and lives to perform this piece of theater under the most challenging circumstances. Infused with music that combines standards from Yiddish theater with folk traditions of the early to mid-20th century, Indecent, a co-production with Baltimore Center Stage and Kansas City Repertory, is directed by Eric Rosen, with choreography by Erika Chong Shuch and music direction and original music by Alexander Sovronsky. The production runs November 23 - December 30, 2018 in the Kreeger Theater.

Making his Arena Stage debut, Ben Cherry (Broadway's Indecent and Fiddler on the Roof) portrays the stage manager Lemml, the role he held in The Guthrie production as well. Returning to Arena are Susan Lynskey (Roe, Noises Off) as The Middle: Halina/Ensemble and Susan Rome (The Great Society, All the Way) as The Elder: Vera/Ensemble. Also making their Arena debuts are Victor Raider-Wexler (Broadway's Gypsy, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom) as The Elder: Otto/Ensemble, Emily Shackelford (Off-Broadway's Lucky Duck) as The Ingenue: Chana/Ensemble, Ethan Watermeier (Les Misérables National Tour) as The Middle: Mendel/Ensemble and Max Wolkowitz (Long Wharf's The Chosen) as The Ingenue: Avram/Ensemble. The three actor/musicians are John Milosich (War Horse National Tour, Synetic Theater's Host and Guest) as Moriz Godowsky/Musician/Ensemble, Maryn Shaw (Studio Theatre's The Wolves) as Nelly Friedman/Musician/Ensemble and Alexander Sovronsky (Broadway's Cyrano de Bergerac) as Mayer Balsam/Musician/Ensemble.

"Paula Vogel is one of America's best living playwrights," says Molly Smith. "She tackles difficult subjects, challenging her audiences to question, confront and learn. I have said at Arena Stage that politics is our voice - in our bones and in our blood. Indecent is the kind of story that demonstrates what an impact theater can have. A great team has been built around this production, with our colleagues from Kansas City Rep and Baltimore CenterStage - which is further evidence of the power of theater."

Tickets for Indecent are $41-95, subject to change and based on availability, plus applicable fees. For information on savings programs such as pay-your-age tickets, student discounts, Southwest Nights and hero's discounts, visit https://www.arenastage.org/tickets/savings-programs/.

Tickets may be purchased online at arenastage.org by phone at 202-488-3300 or at the Sales Office at 1101 Sixth St., SW, D.C.

Let's see what the critics have to say!

Peter Marks, The Washington Post: Shackleford is well matched opposite Susan Lynskey, who portrays, among others, the actresses playing the prostitute. They both carry off the tricky task of differentiating each of their characters by some easy-to-recognize defining affects and gestures. Max Wolkowitz is a fresh and vibrant presence as Asch and others, and Susan Rome and Victor Raider-Wexler bring welcome heft to a variety of mature characters. Three roving musicians (Maryn Shaw, Alexander Sovronsky and John Milosich) playing Sovronsky's poignant compositions are woven dexterously into the proceedings.

John Stoltenberg, DC Metro Arts: Several scenes are out-and-out vaudeville, played in a broad acting style and lit by footlights. The best of these is a number set in a Berlin cabaret, with the whole cast singing and dancing and a smashing Lynskey a la Marlene Dietrich delivering "Bei Mir Bist Du Schon."

Tristan LeJeune, Brightest Young Things: Indecent's cast and crew do a great job with a plot that is at once rather scattered and a little hand-holding, in terms of the projected titles often spelling things out we can clearly see. All of the songs are great, the costumes and set are spot-on, and the performers have a good time playing different actors playing the same character. Shackelford, for example, plays all the actresses trying their hand at the ingenue, lending each their own takes on the character. Lynskey shows off the range, too, of those playing the lead prostitute, from a Marlene Dietrich-ish Berlin lounge singer, to a first-generation immigrant actress thrilled to finally get a lesbian character.

Elliot Lanes, BroadwayWorld: Another standout is one of my favorite local performers Susan Lynsky as Halina and others. Halina is one of the two women involved in the infamous Rain Scene. Playing against the equally great Emily Shackelford as Chana (the other participant in the Rain Scene) and others the two have a relationship both on and offstage that today is commonplace, but back then would have been forbidden.

Inspired by the 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch's Yiddish drama The God of Vengeance, and the controversy that surrounded its themes of censorship, immigration and anti-Semitism, Vogel explores the behind-the-scenes story of the courageous artists who risked their careers and lives to perform this piece of theater under the most challenging circumstances. Infused with music that combines standards from Yiddish theater with folk traditions of the early to mid-20th century, Indecent, a co-production with Baltimore Center Stage and Kansas City Repertory, is directed by Eric Rosen, with choreography by Erika Chong Shuch and music direction and original music by Alexander Sovronsky. The production runs November 23 - December 30, 2018 in the Kreeger Theater.

Making his Arena Stage debut, Ben Cherry (Broadway's Indecent and Fiddler on the Roof) portrays the stage manager Lemml, the role he held in The Guthrie production as well. Returning to Arena are Susan Lynskey (Roe, Noises Off) as The Middle: Halina/Ensemble and Susan Rome (The Great Society, All the Way) as The Elder: Vera/Ensemble. Also making their Arena debuts are Victor Raider-Wexler (Broadway's Gypsy, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom) as The Elder: Otto/Ensemble, Emily Shackelford (Off-Broadway's Lucky Duck) as The Ingenue: Chana/Ensemble, Ethan Watermeier (Les Misérables National Tour) as The Middle: Mendel/Ensemble and Max Wolkowitz (Long Wharf's The Chosen) as The Ingenue: Avram/Ensemble. The three actor/musicians are John Milosich (War Horse National Tour, Synetic Theater's Host and Guest) as Moriz Godowsky/Musician/Ensemble, Maryn Shaw (Studio Theatre's The Wolves) as Nelly Friedman/Musician/Ensemble and Alexander Sovronsky (Broadway's Cyrano de Bergerac) as Mayer Balsam/Musician/Ensemble.

"Paula Vogel is one of America's best living playwrights," says Molly Smith. "She tackles difficult subjects, challenging her audiences to question, confront and learn. I have said at Arena Stage that politics is our voice - in our bones and in our blood. Indecent is the kind of story that demonstrates what an impact theater can have. A great team has been built around this production, with our colleagues from Kansas City Rep and Baltimore CenterStage - which is further evidence of the power of theater."
