              Don’t Trust the Process      Cache   Translate Page      

    Four hundred and eighteen days after failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, 415 days after Bruce Arena’s resignation from the position, the U.S. men’s national team finally has a new permanent head coach: Columbus Crew manager and former U.S. national team defender Gregg Berhalter.

    Berhalter’s first order of business will be stopping the wheels that have been spinning idly since the loss to Trinidad and Tobago that cost the team its qualification. The one squint-real-hard-and-you-might-see-it-if-you’re-the-insufferable-kind-of-optimist silver lining to failing to qualify was that the U.S. would have a 10-month head start on preparing for the 2022 tournament. Since the World Cup in Qatar doesn’t start until November, a promising crop of young talent would have a five-year cycle to grow into the new coach’s system.

    That time is now lost. Spain hired its new coach eight days after being eliminated from the World Cup. Egypt and Tunisia, both knocked out by the end of June, made their hires by Aug. 1. (Tunisia has already fired Faouzi Benzarti, even though he won all three of his games in charge and led them to qualification at the 2019 African Cup of Nations.) Meanwhile, the U.S. has waited, first for the election of the new U.S. Soccer president, Carlos Cordeiro, in February; then for the hiring of the new men’s team general manager, Earnie Stewart, in June; then, finally, for the end of the Crew’s MLS season earlier this month. Four hundred and eighteen days. The only thing more depressing than the morass the men’s program found itself in post-Trinidad is how reluctant U.S. Soccer has seemed to pull itself out.

    The nets, from what we know of the hiring process, do not appear to have been cast far and wide. New York Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch, perhaps the co-favorite along with Berhalter, took himself out of consideration by moving to RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga as an assistant. Other mooted possibilities, such as Peter Vermes of Sporting Kansas City, said they didn’t get further than preliminary talks. FC Dallas coach Óscar Pareja, who just took a job with Mexico’s Club Tijuana, told reporters in late September that he hadn’t gotten an interview. (He apparently did speak to U.S. Soccer sometime after that, according to Yahoo’s Doug McIntyre.)

    Other foreign candidates such as former Mexico manager Juan Carlos Osorio and Atlanta United manager Tata Martino, formerly of Argentina and Barcelona, said they weren’t even contacted, the latter possibly because of an asinine requirement that the new manager speak English fluently. Earlier this month, Sports Illustrated’s Grant Wahl reported that former Spain and Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui had reached out to U.S. Soccer via an intermediary to express interest in the job, only to be told it was too close to the end of the process to bring in a new candidate.

    Four hundred and eighteen days is a lot of time to spend not interviewing people. U.S. Soccer has yet to convince anyone that Berhalter didn’t have the job all along. This is a slight problem only because his brother, Jay Berhalter, already works high up in U.S. Soccer as the chief commercial and strategy officer, overseeing broadcast and corporate partnerships and event operations. In theory, hiring a new national team coach is well outside Jay’s purview, but the process has not exactly been a model of openness and transparency, and at the very least Gregg’s smooth path into the country’s most prominent job is bad optics. Some U.S. Soccer fans have already spent much of the past decade carelessly crying nepotism. You would think the federation might have an interest in trying to stave that off this go-around.

    Awkward family ties or no, Berhalter is a heartening if not exhilarating hire for a program that really needs to get this one right. He comes to the job with—and almost certainly got the job because of—a clearly defined style of play that he’s instituted in Columbus over the past five years, one based on stretching the defense laterally then quickly changing the point of attack to hit the gaps that have been created. The system has coaxed career years out of three different center forwards: Kei Kamara in 2015, Ola Kamara in 2017, and Gyasi Zardes in 2018. Zardes was playing right back for the Los Angeles Galaxy a year ago, and this year he finished tied for fourth-most goals in the league.

    The Crew has had up and down years both defensively and offensively since Berhalter took over before the 2014 season. This year it scored the second-fewest goals in the league, though it balanced that out with an organized defense that limited opponents’ transition opportunities. Columbus hasn’t won a trophy during Berhalter’s tenure, though it did finish as MLS Cup runner-up in 2015 and made the playoffs in four of his five years despite a salary budget that’s in the league’s bottom third.

    After spending the better part of a decade wandering the tactical wilderness with only Jürgen Klinsmann’s motivational speaking and Bruce Arena’s let-the-old-guys-figure-it-out strategy as guides, literally any coherent soccering system seems like an upgrade for the U.S. Even 2018, the team’s inadvertent gap year free from the responsibilities of a major tournament or qualifying, has been spent toiling in interim head coach Dave Sarachan’s off-the-rack 4-1-4-1, which sacrificed creativity and attacking intent in favor of stability and numbers behind the ball. Same as it ever was, though in Sarachan’s defense he has missed his key source of both creativity and attacking intent for much of the year. Christian Pulisic suited up for the U.S. just three times in 2018 after being given the summer off to rest and picking up small injuries during the first two of the fall international windows.

    Without a permanent head coach or the team’s best player, U.S. Soccer leaned hard into the mantra of generational change to gin up interest in its 2018 games. Sarachan trotted out some incredibly young lineups this year, giving 27 total caps to 20-and-under players Tim Weah, Josh Sargent, Weston McKennie, and Tyler Adams, then fed those lineups to the likes of France, Brazil and Colombia, where they’ve won one of their past eight. No matter. “The Future is US,” according to U.S. Soccer’s new, maddeningly vague marketing campaign. What future? When?

    It’s the federation’s own “Trust the Process,” a promise that while things may have gotten bad, they are being handled by someone, somewhere. But U.S. Soccer, which drew out the program’s most important decision for 418 days and still managed to bungle its execution, has done little to prove it deserves that trust. (On the men’s side, at least. The U.S. women are rampaging through the present like a T-1000, going undefeated in 2018 ahead of their World Cup next summer.)

    Instead the federation is passing the responsibility to make good on that promise—and the promise of its talented young players—on to Berhalter. U.S. Soccer is trusting that his structure will help the team succeed at the international level, and that his results will help fans forget what a shambles the hiring process ended up being.


              “A Bronx Tale”      Cache   Translate Page      

     

    Breathes there the man, with soul so dead, / Who never to himself hath said, / This is my own, my native land! / Whose heart hath ne’er within him burn’d, / As home his footsteps he hath turn’d…”

    —Sir Walter Scott

     

    Native land means different things to different people. To some it’s a nation with well-defined borders, like France or Sweden; to others, it transcends borders, à la Ireland or Korea. For many, I think, native land invokes something more intimate and parochial: a patch of earth that, no matter where life takes us, stays synonymous with home. For me, that place is the Bronx of the 1950s and ’60s, a lower-middle/middle-middle-class agglomeration of apartment houses, single-family homes, and small businesses sprawled between Long Island Sound to the east and the Hudson River to the west, a so-called bedroom borough whose north-south subway lines transported its inhabitants to and from jobs in Manhattan. 

    Reeking of exhaust and incinerators, the Bronx was chockablock with pizzerias, German and Jewish delis, Irish bars; blessed with spacious parks, a world-class zoo and botanical garden; and possessed of the Ruthian diamond—the crown jewel of major league baseball—Yankee Stadium. The skyline looming to the south was the imperial city, a dream-big place, proximate yet far away. Ours was the workaday, no-illusion city, its concrete precincts filled with cops, firemen, pipefitters, clerks, mechanics, motormen, taxi drivers, teachers, housewives, shop owners, wire lathers, civil servants, and union members, the everyday people who kept the place running.

    Solid, stolid, often the butt of jokes (“The Bronx, no thonx,” wrote Ogden Nash), the borough was a small-scale Yugoslavia: ethnic enclaves interspersed with areas in which, though physically mingled, groups lived psychically and culturally apart. Jews, by far the most numerous population, branched out from the Art Deco stem of the Grand Course. Highbridge, Kingsbridge, and Woodlawn were heavily Irish. Fordham, presided over by the Jesuit Gothic of the eponymous university, was bordered to the west by the well-heeled Irish parish of St. Nicholas of Tolentine; to the southeast by Belmont, a tight-knit Italian village of modest apartment buildings and meticulously tended one- and two-family homes.

    The once-Irish/Jewish South Bronx filled with newly arrived Puerto Ricans and African Americans. The East Bronx was a trifecta of Jews, Irish, and Italians. Riverdale, in the borough’s northwest corner, felt like an appendage of suburban Westchester County. Fieldston, adjacent to it, was a privately owned enclave of privilege and palatial homes.

    Home to almost a million-and-a-half people, the borough had only one real hotel, the Concourse Plaza. It was often referred to as the “Bronx’s Waldorf Astoria,” a description more aspirational than exact, which is not to say it wasn’t a fine place to spend the night. Around the corner from where my wife was raised and a Mickey Mantle home run away from Yankee Stadium, the Concourse Plaza is at the center of the 1956 movie A Catered Affair, a tale of working-class Irish-Catholic parents in conflict over their daughter’s wedding reception.

    In an improbable feat of casting, the taxi-driving, Irish-Catholic dad is played by Ernest Borgnine, the daughter by Debbie Reynolds, and the mother by Bette Davis, whose attempt at a Bronx accent is somewhere between a misfire and weird. (Barry Fitzgerald, her brother, has a rich Irish brogue, a discrepancy left unexplained.) The movie was based on a television play by Bronx-native Paddy Chayefsky, who the previous year had won the Academy Award for best screenplay for Marty, another Bronx tale with Ernest Borgnine in his Academy Award–winning role as an Italian-American butcher.

    I recall Marty receiving accolades from relatives and neighbors. Scenes shot in the Bronx and mention of places like Fordham Road and Arthur Avenue sprinkled Hollywood stardust over the borough’s prosaic precincts. As opposed to Marty, which had a ring of authenticity, A Catered Affair was a blatant attempt to piggyback on the success of its predecessor, with Irish characters substituted for Italian. The screenplay was written by Gore Vidal who, if pressed, could probably have located the Bronx somewhere between Montreal and the Upper East Side. The movie earned mostly Bronx cheers.

     

    When I heard talk of intermarriage, it referred to Irish-Italian nuptials.

    We Bronx Irish defined ourselves as much by parishes as neighborhoods. I was from St. Raymond’s, in Parkchester, in the East Bronx. Founded in 1842, it was the first Catholic church in Westchester County. (The Bronx became a separate county in 1914. The five boroughs of New York City are coterminous with state counties.) In the burial yard in front of the church were three towering Celtic crosses, monuments to the half-century reign of a triad of Irish monsignori. Despite all belonging to the genus of B.I.C. (Bronx Irish Catholic), we at St. Raymond Elementary School considered ourselves distinctly different from our counterparts in the neighboring parish of St. Helena’s.

    A planned community of 12,000 apartments spread across 171 buildings between 7 and 13 stories, Parkchester was created by the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, which also financed construction of Stuyvesant Town in Manhattan. Parks and open spaces were strategically placed. The main means of transportation were subways and the extensive system of city-owned bus lines. But in anticipation of a rapid increase in car ownership, there were multistoried garages and copious parking spaces.

    Parkchester’s residents were overwhelmingly Jewish and Catholic—Irish in the main. The few Protestants who lived there were regarded with curiosity. Up until the 1960s, Metropolitan Life excluded African Americans from both Stuyvesant Town and Parkchester. This was of a piece with the intransigent residential segregation that prevailed (and still prevails) across large swathes of the city. Desperate to increase the supply of middle-class housing—at least for whites—New York’s progressive mayor, Fiorello LaGuardia, reluctantly went along. (Ironically, the oval at Parkchester’s center once contained the ballfield on which the Negro League’s Lincoln Giants played their home games.)

    Parkchester was built on the site of the old Catholic Protectory, which was founded in 1863 by Archbishop John Hughes, the Ulster-born hierarch who established Fordham University, initiated the building of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and made the New York Irish into a political as well as religious constituency. The Protectory housed orphans and abandoned children, mostly Irish, whom the Children’s Aid Society had begun shipping west on “Orphan Trains” to be settled among God-fearing, Anglo-Saxon Protestants.

    Bordering Parkchester, Morris Park to the west and Castle Hill to the east were heavily Italian. A step behind in terms of assimilation and economic advancement, Italians generally preferred houses with small gardens rather than apartments. Parochial schools brought us together. Friendships blossomed and so did fights. I remember the schoolyard of St. Raymond’s as an asphalt Serengeti where the weak were bullied and Irish toughs battled tough Italians. (Pugilistically inept, I did my best to be inconspicuous.)

    Sometimes the rivalries were humorous. One Italian carting company emblazoned on its garbage trucks “We Cater Irish Weddings.” When I heard talk of “intermarriage” it referred to Irish-Italian nuptials. It wasn’t until later that miscegenation escalated into ethnic meltdown and bred a new strain of Hiberno-Mediterranean offspring notable for their good looks.

    Over the years, I’ve heard from Jewish Bronxites about suffering verbal harassment (“kikes,” “sheenies,” “Christ-killers”) and physical abuse from, as one friend put it, “Irish pogromists.” Without doubting their accounts, that wasn’t my experience. Through all my years of parochial school, I never heard anti-Semitic professions by teachers or clergy. We were told it was our sins that nailed Jesus to the cross. If either of my parents suspected we were cursing or bullying Jews, retribution would have been swift and severe. Yet I had no Jewish friends. We lived separately together. One thing shared by gentiles and Jews was a familiarity with Yiddish. To be a Bronxite was to schlepp and kibitz, and to understand the difference between a schmuck and a mensch.

    I had no acquaintance with Jewish girls, except one. We rode the 20 BX bus together, she to Walton Girls High School in Kingsbridge, me to all-male Manhattan Prep in Riverdale. I sat in the back with my school buddies, she in front with her classmates. The first time I saw her, I was smitten by her thin and graceful figure, clothes loose and flowing (our style then was tight), thick black curls (the fashion was long and straight), an early-blossoming flower child. It was part of growing up in the Bronx to figure out, as quickly as possible, a person’s tribe. I identified her Jewishness in the same way, if she bothered to notice, she perceived my goyishness.

    We never spoke. And then, one September, she was gone, off to college I presumed. I spent months bereft. Recently, for the first time in fifty years, I rode a bus along the old route, and it all flooded back, my lonely-hearts Bronx tale, unbridgeable worlds in the same borough, on the same bus.

     

    Economic change drove social change, and reinforced it. Vatican II altered our unalterable church.

    My first ancestors arrived in New York when Margaret and Michael Manning fled the Great Famine. Margaret Manning, their daughter and my paternal grandmother, was born in 1863, in the village of Fordham—at that time part of Westchester County—and baptized in the university church. (It was then called St. John’s College.) My grandfather Patrick Quinn, a union organizer, was born in Tipperary in 1859. His family emigrated to New York in 1870. He married Margaret Manning, a seamstress, in St. Brigid’s church, on the Lower East Side, in 1899. They moved to the Bronx in 1914, where they bought a small house in the West Farms neighborhood which, despite its name, was absent all things agricultural.

    Contra the notion of Irish obsession with ancestry, my family showed little interest in the past. My mother had an active disinterest, routinely tossing out documents and obfuscating or bowdlerizing the fate of relatives who fell victim to impoverishment or their own misbehaviors (or both). The primary focus of my parents and grandparents wasn’t on the Irish past but the American future, and their children’s role in it.

    My father recalled that as a boy on the Lower East Side he shared a room with his older brother in which they rarely stayed. My grandparents hosted relative after relative as they arrived from Ireland, until none were left to bring over. If my grandfather heard anyone sentimentalizing about the old country his instant riposte was, “If you miss it so much, why don’t you go back?” Romantic Ireland didn’t ring very convincingly in crowded tenement rooms.

    Catherine Riordan of Blarney, County Cork, landed at Castle Garden in 1888. (It would be four years before Ellis Island opened and processed its first immigrant, Annie Moore, also of County Cork.) Though Catherine claimed to be eighteen, it’s more likely she was fifteen or sixteen and lied about her age so she could join her older sister as a domestic and begin sending remittances home to finance her siblings’ journeys. She stayed at maid’s work until she met James Murphy, a native-Irish speaker from near Macroom, who worked as a mechanic at Yorkville’s Rupert Brewery. My mother, Viola Murphy, the last of their six children, was born on the top floor of a four-story walkup on 149th Street, in the Bronx.

    Coming of age in the 1920s, my parents belonged to the first truly modern generation. Electricity rolled back night and blazed the Great White Way. New appliances alleviated the burden of ancient drudgeries. Movies and radio revolutionized entertainment. Cars and airplanes shrank old barriers of distance. Credit and the installment plan made commonplace what were once luxuries. People’s expectations rose exponentially. The population of the Bronx tripled to 1.2 million in 1930 from 400,000 in 1910. Progress and prosperity were presumed, with America in the vanguard, and Jazz Age New York ahead of all.

    While none of my grandparents went beyond primary school, my parents graduated from college. My father received a B.S. in civil engineering from Manhattan College (despite its name, it’s in the Bronx) and worked on the construction of the IND subway while attending Fordham Law School at night. My mother was a classics major at Mt. Saint Vincent, in Riverdale. They met in 1928 at a parish St. Patrick’s Day dance in the Bronx. They loved nightclubs, the theater—musicals, the Marx Brothers, Shakespeare—and reveled in the speakeasy hubbub in which my mother’s bartender brother was much admired for his skill as a mixologist.

    The presumption that they had escaped their ancestors’ world—a chronicle of unhappy endings that culminated in starvation and migration—was rocked by the Crash of ’29 and the Great Depression. My mother lost her small savings as a teacher when the Edgewater Savings Bank folded. Her immigrant father lost his life savings, the accumulation of forty years working in a brewery. Pensionless, he worked until he died. My two aunts, one a teacher, the other a secretary, stayed unwed and at home to support my grandmother.

    Though he had an engineering and law degree, my father struggled to find a full-time job. He volunteered with the local Democratic Club. Edward J. Flynn, the formidable Fordham-educated leader (aka “The Boss”) of the Bronx Democratic organization and a confidante of Governor Franklin Roosevelt, took a liking to him. Flynn sent my father to the 1932 Democratic National Convention in Chicago as part of a contingent that worked behind the scenes to keep the New York delegation in line for FDR. My father campaigned hard for FDR, speaking around the city from the back of a flatbed truck. In 1936, he was elected to the State Assembly. A week after the election, eight years after they met, my parents were married.

    My father spent the rest of his life in Bronx politics, serving in the assembly until 1944, then a term in the U.S. Congress (he was one of the two congressmen from New York who rode FDR’s funeral train to Hyde Park), and the rest of his career as a judge of the Municipal Court, chief judge of the City Court, and a justice of the State Supreme Court. He was at home in the Bronx, in the parish in which he grew up.

    His obituary in the New York Times states that his “associates described him as a witty and brilliant man who loved to sing Irish songs and tell Irish stories.” My father and mother were both fine singers and dancers. The songs were mainly from Broadway shows or The Great American Songbook, the dances foxtrots and waltzes, not reels and jigs. The “Irish songs” weren’t folk tunes but Irish-American favorites like “Harrigan,” “Galway Bay,” and their all-time favorite, “How Are Things in Glocca Morra?” (lyrics by Jewish songwriter E. Y. Harberg). The stories my father excelled at telling—stories salted with theatrical mastery of dialects—rarely involved Ireland (when they did, they were ghost stories) and rose instead from his life amid the mishegas of Bronx politics.

    I took for granted that the Irish-American world my family existed in for over a century would remain as it was. The election of John F. Kennedy as president in 1960 felt like a capstone. Shortly before the election, Kennedy spoke at the Concourse Plaza. My father, running in his last election for the state Supreme Court, also spoke. Afterwards, Kennedy traveled up the Grand Course on the back of a convertible, a quaintly distant, pre-Dallas image. My friends and I stood in front of the Loew’s Paradise, a movie palace that has since then been stripped and defaced, and helped swell the panethnic delirium that arose when Kennedy mounted a platform in front of the long-vanished Sachs Furniture and Krum’s Candy stores.

     

    Permanence of any kind is the grandest of illusions. What was different about the Bronx was the velocity with which the illusion crumbled. The origins of the Bronx as one of the city’s five boroughs (the only one on the U.S. mainland) were obscure even to Bronxites. I heard passing mention among my elders of “annexation” and “consolidation,” but the hardedge, unremitting brick-on-brick streetscapes disguised its overnight transformation from pastoral to metropolitan and made it seem pretty much the same since the Dutch forcibly evicted the peaceable, innocent Lenapes.

    The centrifugal swirl that memory insists descended suddenly, like a fast-moving storm, had been building for some time. The pharaonic schemes of Robert Moses carried traffic around and across the Bronx to Long Island and New Jersey. The fund-starved, once-efficient public-transit system creaked and sputtered. FHA mortgages spurred the upwardly mobile, suburban aspirations of would-be homeowners and at the same time maintained and abetted the enduring injustice of residential apartheid that condemned minorities to a decaying, substandard housing stock.

    Economic change drove social change, and reinforced it. Vatican II altered our unalterable church. Priests and nuns molted back into civilians. Parishioners moved away. Once-thriving parishes became enfeebled. Rock ’n’ roll and the sexual revolution made the generation gap seem more like a chasm. Crime, and fear of it, escalated. The Concourse Plaza became a welfare hotel. The celluloid Bronx of Marty and A Catered Affair, the home of good-hearted working-class stiffs, descended into Fort Apache, The Bronx, a crime-ridden wasteland ruled by drug addicts and crooked cops. Formerly a synonym for low-rent blah, the borough was now “the burning Bronx,” a global synecdoche for urban ruin.

    The future fled the Bronx. Friends moved away or never returned from college. Soon enough I followed, serving as a VISTA volunteer in Kansas City. Beckoned by the beautiful and new—everything the Bronx wasn’t—I felt the lure of California. It was then, for the first time, I thought about what I was leaving behind: the saga of the Atlantic passover from poverty and subservience to steerage and immigrant tenements; those who made it, those who didn’t, those whose names I knew, those I didn’t. I turned my footsteps home and returned to New York.

    I attended Bronx Catholic institutions from kindergarten to the last stages of a PhD. Though they were all founded or largely staffed by Irish and Irish Americans, my first encounter with Irish history was in a college course on Victorian Britain. The past was a blur. It was as if we emerged from the shadows and fully entered history when we came to the Bronx.

    My threadbare connection to Michael Manning, my great-grandfather, was my father’s memory of him as a blind old man, quiet and gentle, who never talked about what led him to emigrate other than to say that he would never think about going back “until they hanged the last landlord.” Except that he was born in pre-famine Ireland and emigrated before the Civil War, all I knew of him was a line in the census—“occupation: laborer”—and the place of his death on January 10, 1910: 296 East 7th Street, a long-ago demolished tenement. I later learned the name Manning was an errant transcription of Mangan that, for whatever reason, stuck. The rest was silence.

     

    Why the past means so much to some and not much—or not at all—to others is hard to figure. At bottom, I think, it involves history as therapy.

    When I returned to New York, any research I did was lackadaisical and accidental. So was my career. I worked as a Wall Street messenger, a court officer in Bronx Landlord & Tenant Court, an archivist at the New York Botanical Gardens (natives always refer to it as the Bronx Botanical Gardens), et al., until I found my way to a graduate program at Fordham. I was a graduate assistant to the late Maurice O’Connell, a scholar of Irish history and descendant of Daniel O’Connell, the Liberator, a towering figure in that history.

    I traveled to Ireland and studied there. Though I felt an intimate connection to the land and people, I confronted the fact it wasn’t home and I didn’t belong. On one occasion, I took my mother to her father’s village. Not a trace of the family remained. The journey my ancestors made was final and irreversible. Caught on the hyphen between this small island to the east and the vast continent to the west, I recognized that my native land was the interspace on America’s Atlantic ledge.

    Why the past means so much to some and not much—or not at all—to others is hard to figure. At bottom, I think, it involves history as therapy, as a key to understanding self as well as society, as a restless desire to uncover what we don’t know about ourselves, however partial or fractured that must be. Perhaps that hope was best captured by New York novelist and memoirist Kathleen Hill when she wrote, “our journey toward understanding the selves we had considered lost forever or, worse, have never even missed, may be restored if we are patiently attentive to our inner promptings.”

    In the early-morning hours and in the time I could game or grift from my corporate day job, I began trying to reconstruct what I could of my ancestors’ immigrant world. It gradually dawned on me that the history I sought belonged to lives too unimportant to record, people who suffered history rather than recorded it, servants, laborers, anonymous poor, ordinary moments that weren’t written anywhere, the intricate tangle of existences shrunk to generalities, statistics, accidental mention, a census line.

    Despairing of history, I decided to venture into the terra incognita of fiction and attempt a novel set during the Civil War Draft Riots, an epic explosion—part race riot, part insurrection—that tore New York City apart and exposed the perennial, often-feral struggle among those at the bottom of American society.

    I copied paragraphs from novels I admired, scribbled the beginnings of the story I wanted to tell. I researched, wrote, despaired, rewrote, deserted, returned, persisted across an entire decade. I discovered in fiction truths I didn’t in history. I grappled with the power of the past to bolt in place the exoskeleton that supported and shaped—sometimes misshaped—expectations and relationships far into the future. I came to grasp the human need to forget as well as to remember. I learned that what goes unspoken, unacknowledged, has the greatest sway of all. Everything around me, parish, school, politics, religion, the Bronx I grew up in and carry with me, sprang from and contained what came before. The past never goes away, I realized; it only goes ignored or denied.

    My characters became my companions, comrades-in-arms, soulmates, a company of aspiring, compromised, lustful, decent, cowardly, ruthless, compassionate, befuddled human beings—Irish, African Americans, old-stock New Yorkers—that I gathered under a phrase from a prayer I said since childhood: “banished children of eve.” Some were imaginary, some reconstructed from random facts and fragments inherited from my family, some, like Stephen Foster and John Hughes, real.

    I listened as they mumbled, murmured, shouted, revealed themselves. They prompted me, guided me, led me through the vale of tears and weeping, laughter and rejoicing, that each generation travels in its own way. They gave me back the past and reminded me of what I thought I didn’t know. They taught me that the borders of our native land are the borders of our hearts.

              Epische Verletzungsseuche plagt die Pechvögel der NFL       Cache   Translate Page      

    Die Philadelphia Eagles feiern gegen die Washington Redskins einen wichtigen Sieg im Kampf um den Einzug in die Playoffs.

    Zum Abschluss des 13. Spieltags setzte sich der Champion der vergangenen Saison mit 28:13 durch und hat damit den Wildcard-Spot weiter fest im Blick. (Tabelle der NFL)

    Im heimischen Lincoln Financial Field fand Philly von Beginn an besser ins Spiel und ging früh durch eine Touchdown-Reception in Führung. Bei den Gästen aus der Hauptstadt wurden dagegen die großen Verletzungssorgen deutlich - und diese wurden im weiteren Spielverlauf noch größer.

    Redskins erneut mit Verletzungspech

    Anfang des zweiten Viertels musste Ersatz-Quarterback Colt McCoy schwer verletzt vom Feld. Wie die Untersuchung später ergab, zog sich der 32-Jährige einen Wadenbeinbruch zu. Zudem riss sich Offensive Lineman Jonathan Cooper eines Bizepsmuskels und wird den Rest der Saison ebenfalls verpassen. Er ist der sechste Lineman der Redskins auf der Langzeitverletztenliste (inklusive Top-Starter Brandon Scherff).

    Der epischen Seuche des dreimaligen Super-Bowl-Champions fielen zuvor unter anderem bereits Starting-Quarterback Alex Smith, der beste Receiver Paul Richardson, Cam Sims und Rob Kelley zum Opfer. Bereits vor der Saison hatte sich der hochtalentierte Running Back Derrius Guice einen Kreuzbandriss zugezogen. Schon in der vergangenen Saison endeten mehr als 15 Spieler auf Injured Reserve - damals hauptsächlich Verteidiger.

    "Es ist ein harter Schlag. Alex zu verlieren, war schon hart. Er ist ein großartiger Quarterback und Anführer, dann bekommt Colt endlich seine Chance und wird ans Bein getreten und bricht es dabei. Es bricht mir das Herz", sagte der niedergeschlagene Skins-Coach Jay Gruden. McCoy hatte das Eagles-Spiel perfekt angefangen, vor der großen Verletzungsflut hatte Washington die NFC East mit fünf Siegen bei nur zwei Niederlagen klar angeführt, verlor nun aber vier der vergangenen fünf Partien.

    Sanchez schreibt Geschichte

    McCoy wurde in der Folge von Mark Sanchez ersetzt, der erst vor zwei Wochen von den Redskins unter Vertrag genommen worden war. Der Neuzugang erwischte direkt einen Traumstart. Sein Handoff auf Running Back Adrian Peterson resultierte in einem 90-Yard-Touchdown und brachte Washington mit 10:7 in Führung. Sanchez ist nun zudem der erst zweite Spieler überhaupt, der für drei Teams in der NFC East Passversuche unternommen hat.

    Die Eagles reagierten ihrerseits mit einem weiteren Touchdown durch Darren Sproles zur 14:13-Halbzeitführung. Dieser hatte zuletzt vor zwei Jahren einen Touchdown hingelegt und seitdem verletzungsbedingt - unter anderem mit einem Kreuzbandriss und einem gebrochenen Arm - lange pausieren müssen.

    Schweres Restprogramm für Philadelphia

    Im dritten Viertel nahmen sich beide Mannschaften dann spürbar zurück. Während die Eagles das Spiel kontrollierten, fehlten der sichtlich gebeutelten Redskins-Offensive schlichtweg die Durchschlagskraft und Möglichkeiten.

    Zwei Field Goals und ein weiterer Touchdown sorgten schlussendlich für den klaren Erfolg des amtierenden Meisters, bei dem vor allem Quarterback Carson Wentz mit Pässen für insgesamt 306 Yards und zwei Touchdown-Pässen zu überzeugen wusste. Ebenso lieferte Tight End Zach Ertz einmal mehr eine hervorragende Leistung ab. Er fing gegen die Redskins neun Pässe ab und steht damit bereits bei 93 in der laufenden Spielzeit.

    Nach dem Sieg hat Philadelphia die Playoffs wieder fest im Blick, allerdings auch ein schweres Restprogramm. Am kommenden Spieltag geht es zunächst gegen die Dallas Stars ehe das Spiel gegen die Los Angeles Rams ansteht. (Spielplan der NFL)

              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.

    ANZEIGE: Die NFL bei DAZN. Jetzt kostenlosen Testmonat sichern!

    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.

              Strange Fruit #179: The Same Conversation      Cache   Translate Page      
    When we sat down in the studio to record this week's show, it was Wednesday evening, and our hearts were heavy with the news of Alton Sterling's death. Sterling was shot and killed by police in Baton Rouge. He'd been selling CDs outside of a convenience store. It's a conversation we've had more times than we can accurately remember in our four years of producing Strange Fruit episodes. The details change, but our analysis stays the same. A police officer who hasn't been trained to recognize his own internal biases is more likely to see a black man as a threat. Media outlets look to the victim's past, and behavior during the stop, for evidence of guilt. Police who shoot people are rarely convicted of crimes. These are all factors in this cycle of police violence we're seeing in the United States — and now that most people have cell phones with video cameras, we actually see the incidents, all over the internet and TV. The morning after we recorded our episode, the whole world was watching a Facebook live video taken by Diamond Reynolds showing the last minutes of her boyfriend's life. Philandro Castile was shot by police during a traffic stop. Reynolds's 4-year-old daughter, who was in the back seat during the shooting, could be heard on the live stream telling her mom, "It’s OK, I’m right here with you." And then, the next night, a sniper shot at police during a peaceful protest in Dallas, killing five officers. The violence perpetrated by and involving the police is so constant, we can't keep up with it. So this week, we're bringing you the show as we originally recorded it, focused on Alton Sterling. We'll be at Louisville's vigil on Sunday, and we'll keep you posted on further developments. And we sincerely hope we never see another week like this.

    Kameron doesn't believe Brandi

    Real Housewives of Dallas was a rodeo of drama this season, and I absolutely adored every second of the cray. Whether it’s LeeAnne Locken’s finger-knives and infinity dress or Cary Deuber’s flip-flopping in the name of truth serum, it’s been a great season.

              Strange Fruit #116: Juicy Fruit News Round-Up      Cache   Translate Page      
    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 #92: Advocating for the Rights of Deaf Prisoners      Cache   Translate Page      
    "We call it a prison within a prison." That's how advocates describe the lives of incarcerated Deaf and hard of hearing people. The vast majority of correctional facilities have no ASL interpreters, and it's not unusual for inmates who rely on hearing aids to be denied the devices—or denied batteries to make them work. Talila Lewis is the founder of HEARD (Helping Educate to Advance the Rights of the Deaf), and joins us this week to talk about the work they're doing to try to improve the lives and ensure the rights of incarcerated folks with disabilities. Lewis says the ableism in mainstream society is magnified in the prison setting. "If you don't respond to an auditory command, you get shot or beaten or put into solitary confinement," Lewis explains. "Everything around you is based on sound. So if you miss the bell at 4am to get up and go eat, you miss chow. That's it." Being Deaf or hard of hearing in prison essentially means being unable to communicate with anyone around you. "It's almost like being in solitary confinement," Lewis says. They're also more susceptible to physical and sexual assault, often asked to trade sexual access to their bodies for vital information from hearing inmates. Because there are no accommodations in place to allow these inmates to communicate, it's hard to find them, count them, and make sure they're okay. HEARD created and maintains the only national deaf and deaf-blind prisoner database, but without cooperation from departments of correction, accurate numbers are hard to come by. They estimate that Deaf, deaf-blind, and hard of hearing prisoners in the U.S. number in the tens of thousands. We talk with Lewis this week about what we can do, and our local, state, and federal government could do, to protect the rights of this vulnerable population. In our Juicy Fruit segment, Ebola fears continue to surface—this week, right here in Louisville. A Catholic Elementary school asked a teacher to self-quarantine after her mission trip to Kenya. Please note that if you are reading this from anywhere in the United States, you are currently closer to the Ebola patients in Dallas than Kenya is to the outbreak in West Africa. The Washington NFL team continues to be the worst, now suing Native American activists who fought to have the trademark canceled on their offensive team name. And if a server told you a bottle of wine cost "thirty-seven fifty," would you assume $37.50, like a diner in Atlantic City did last week? The bottle was actually $3,750, giving the customer quite a sticker shock, and leading us to wonder just how many dishes we'd have to wash if a bill like that was ever placed in front of #TeamStrangeFruit.

              Online Examples Of The Children's Parody Rhyme "Jingle Bells Shotgun Shells" From The Southern Region Of The United States       Cache   Translate Page      
    Edited by Azizi Powell

    This pancocojams post provides (word only) examples of the children's* parody rhyme "Jingle Bells Shotgun Shells".

    Most of the commenters sharing these examples indicate that they were from the Southern region of the United States.

    The Addendum to this post showcases a few online examples of "Jingle Bells Shotgun Shells" that were posted without demographics (where or when the examples were chanted).

    DISCLAIMER: This compilation is not meant to be a comprehensive collection of "Jingle Bells Shotgun Shells" children's rhymes from that geographic area or otherwise. Also, note that this compilation doesn't include adult examples of "Jingle Bells Shotgun Shells".

    *"Children" here means about 5 years old to 19 years old (teenagers/youth).

    PANCOCOJAMS EDITOR'S NOTE
    "Jingle Bell Shotgun Shells" is a subset of other "Jingle Bells" song parodies (such as "Jingle Bells Santa Smells") which predate the more widely known now parody "Jingle Bells Batman Smells". Based on comments from rhyme contributor (particularly from https://www.robweir.com/blog/2006/01/jingle-bells-batman-smells.html), it appears that Batman parodies of "Jingle Bells" were first chanted in 1966 or shortly thereafter. 1966 was the first year that the widely popular American television series Batman first aired on national television.

    However, as indicated by some examples that are found in this compilation, as well as other online examples -including a 2012 YouTube video of a White teenage girl reciting this rhyme with what is known as "the n word"-, examples of "Jingle Bell Shotgun Shell" were and probably are still chanted after "Jingle bells Batman smells" became the predominate first line of this rhyme.

    I chose to highlight examples of children's "Jingle Bells" parodies from the Southern region of the United States partly because- with the exception of "Jingle Bells Batman Smells- I found more examples of "Jingle Bells Shotgun Smells" online and more examples from the Southern region of the USA than from any other part of the USA or elsewhere.

    I also compiled examples of this particular variant of "Jingle Bells" children's parodies because I was interested to find examples of these rhymes that include the "n word" and I want to document that fact as well as the published comments that were included with those examples or were made in reaction to those examples.

    In addition, I want to document the existence of a rhyme in the "Jingle Bell Shotgun Shell" sub-set from 1960s Black civil rights activists in the South which I happened upon while searching online for examples of these rhymes. I've included that example and the example that preceded it in that website.

    Someone from Alabama made the same post. I guess it's a Southern thing! We sang this version as children in the 80's, but I'm sure it was around before then.

    I learned this circa 1972 while living in Prince George’s (or PG as we called it) County, MD. It had the standard first verse that most people seem to have grown up with. The second verse more or less had the “Rudolph ran away” and “beat up Chevrolet” lyrics. However, one friend of mine would sing the second verse with the “shotgun shells” and “Santa’s underwear” lyrics, while another would sing the first verse with the “50 miles away” lyric. It astounds me how many variations there have been!

    I heard,
    “Jingle bells, Batman smells,
    Robin laid an egg.”
    I don’t remember what the next two lines were. I also heard,
    “Jingle Bells, Shotgun shells,
    Santa Claus is dead.
    Tried to steal my teddy bear;
    I shot him in the head.”

    Gruesome.

    I lived in west Texas, and this would have been mid- to late 1960s.

    "Thanks to its ubiquitous Yuletide popularity [of the Jingle Bells song] , everyone knew the basic tune, so it was easy for ad hoc groups of angry racists to come up with charming little ditties like this one from Mississippi in 1961:

    Jingle bells, shotgun shells
    Granny had a gun
    Pulled that trigger
    And shot that [you know damn well what word]* in 1961

    The beauty of "Jingle Bells" is that the rhyme scheme is simple enough to adapt on the fly. It's likely that countless variations shot back and forth between kids over the next turbulent decade. The practice was apparently common enough that it earned an official mention in a 1970 biography of Martin Luther King**. According to the book, during the 1966 Meredith civil rights march (from Memphis, Tennessee, to Jackson, Mississippi) "young" and rowdy marchers started chanting this:

    Jingle bells, shotgun shells
    Freedom all the way
    Oh what fun it is to blast
    A trooper man away

    One of the most widespread children's folksongs that is alive and well in 21st century American oral tradition is the schoolyard parody "Jingle Bells, Batman Smells." I am curious to know what is the earliest year you can remember hearing or singing this parody? Did it exist before the "Batman" television series (1966-68)? Has it appeared in print prior to the publication of "Junie B., First Grader: Jingle Bells, Batman Smells!" by Barbara Park and Denise Brunkus in 2009?

    I have heard a variant sung in South Carolina in the 1950's that goes:

    "Jingle bells, shotgun shells, BBs all the way,
    Oh, what fun it is to ride in a suped-up Chevrolet"

    When did Batman become the song's protagonist?

    I heard two versions of this "jingle" back in the 70's. One was "naughty," according to my mother, and the other one was pure racist (this was in the South in the 1970's)

    Version 1
    Jingle bells, shotgun shells
    Rabbits all the way.
    One jumped up, and I shot him in the butt,
    and the other got away.

    Version 2

              Sprint confirms it's working with Samsung on a 5G device      Cache   Translate Page      
    Sprint logo CTIA

    So far this week, Verizon and AT&T have announced plans to launch a 5G smartphone from Samsung in the first half of 2019. Now, not wanting to be left out, Sprint has revealed that it's got similar plans.

    Sprint has confirmed that it's working with Samsung to launch a 5G device next year. "We're one of Samsung's biggest customers. You better believe we're working with them as well," said Ryan Sullivan, Sprint's VP of product engineering and development, to PCMag.

    Neither Verizon, AT&T, nor Sprint have said much what this mystery 5G Samsung smartphone might be, but it's looking likely that it'll be a 5G-enabled version of the Samsung Galaxy S10. We typically see Samsung's Galaxy S flagships launch across all major U.S. carriers, and we've heard rumors that Samsung is working on a special 5G model of the Galaxy S10. Considering all of that and the fact that Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint have all said that they're working with Samsung on a 5G phone, a 5G-enabled Galaxy S10 seems to be the most probably identity of those carriers' upcoming device.

    Sprint has said that it's planning to launch its 5G coverage in nine cities in the first half of 2019. Those cities are Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix, and Washington D.C. The carrier has also confirmed that it's working with HTC on a 5G mobile smart hub that'll arrive in the first half of 2019, as well as a 5G smartphone from LG that'll launch in the first half of 2019.


              AT&T will launch a 5G Samsung smartphone in the first half of 2019      Cache   Translate Page      
    AT&T 5G logo

    Verizon isn't the only carrier that'll have a 5G smartphone from Samsung in 2019.

    AT&T today confirmed that it will launch a 5G Samsung smartphone in spring of 2019. No other details, like specs or pricing, have been announced, but AT&T says that it'll share more information in the coming months.

    AT&T has installed mobile 5G network equipment in 12 markets across the U.S. where it plans to launch its service in 2018. The cities where AT&T mobile 5G will go live this year include Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Louisville, Oklahoma City, New Orleans, Raleigh, San Antonio, and Waco. Coverage will expand to parts of Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Nashville, Orlando, San Diego, San Francisco, and San Jose in the first half of 2019.

    Rumors have suggested that Samsung is prepping a 5G version of the Galaxy S10, and it's possible that that's the device that could launch at AT&T and Verizon. Not only do Samsung's Galaxy S flagships already launch on multiple carriers, but a special Galaxy S10 with 5G connectivity and high-end specs could help convince more consumers to make the jump to 5G.

              MADANI: BC LIONS TO HIRE CLAYBROOKS      Cache   Translate Page      
    By: Arash Madani
    Sportsnet.ca

    A week after his defence suffocated Ottawa to win the 106th Grey Cup, multiple sources tell Sportsnet that DeVone Claybrooks will be the next head coach of the BC Lions. 

    Claybrooks has met with the Lions, and the soon-to-be former Stampeders defensive coordinator is close to terms on a deal with BC. While nothing has been signed, yet, it is expected that a contract will be finalized soon.

    A press conference to announce the move likely happens later this week. 

    Claybrooks had been one of the CFL's most sought-after coaches this off-season, and interviewed with the Toronto Argonauts only days after Calgary's championship win. It is believed the Argos were very interested in hiring Claybrooks, but he left to visit with the Lions next -- and ultimately ended up being the successor to Wally Buono. 

    Sources told Sportsnet that BC general manager Ed Hervey had Claybrooks as the top candidate on his head coaching wishlist. The two have had a good relationship with one another over the years and it was important for Hervey to land someone he trusted with his first coaching hire in Vancouver. 

    Toronto wasn't the only other possible destination for Claybrooks. Just last week, Justin Dunk of 3DownNation reported that the Dallas Cowboys could have been a landing spot for Claybrooks as the team's defensive line coach. He once played for Dallas defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli. 

    Claybrooks, 41, has been a coach with Calgary since 2012, following an 11-year professional playing career. He was the defensive line coach with the Stamps for four seasons, including the 2014 Grey Cup season, then was promoted to defensive coordinator in 2015. 

    Claybrooks was instrumental in making Micah Johnson one of the best players in the CFL, moving him inside to defensive tackle. 

    The Stampeders defence forced six RedBlacks turnovers in their Grey Cup win last Sunday, cementing Claybrooks as the top head coaching candidate in the CFL going into the winter.

              Midterm America: Welcome to the struggle for the country’s soul      Cache   Translate Page      
    It was crude. It was dumb. It was all basically nuts. The question was: how much of America would buy it?


    By Ben Fountain

    Evil days.

    The midterms were bearing down on us like a runaway train with Donald Trump in the driver’s seat and the throttle wide open, the Presidential Special hell-bent for the bottom. “Go Trump Go!” tweeted David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, as if the president needed anyone’s encouragement. There had been no slacking after pipe bombs were sent to a number of his critics; nor after two black people were killed in Kentucky by a white man who, minutes before, had tried to enter a predominantly black church; nor after 11 worshippers in Pittsburgh were murdered at the Tree of Life Congregation synagogue by a man who’d expressed special loathing for HIAS, a Jewish refugee resettlement and advocacy organization. “HIAS likes to bring invaders in that kill our people,” Robert Bowers posted on his Gab account hours before the massacre. “I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I’m going in.”

    Trump, relentless Trump, went right on raging about “invasions,” left-wing “mobs,” globalists, MS-13, and “caravan after caravan [of] illegal immigrants” invited in by Democrats to murder Americans, vote illegally, and mooch off our health care system. “Hate speech leads to hate crimes,” Rabbi Jeffrey Myers told the president in Pittsburgh several days after the murders. The FBI had previously reported a large spike in hate crimes over the previous two years, and the Anti-Defamation League noted a 60% rise in anti-Semitic incidents from 2016 to 2017. Then there was this, reported in the New York Times on the day before the election: “Advisers to the president said his foes take his campaign rally language too literally; as outrageous as it might seem, it is more entertainment, intended to generate a crowd reaction.” And Trump himself, when asked why he wasn’t campaigning on the strong economy, responded: “Sometimes it’s not as exciting to talk about the economy.”

    Not as exciting as, say, hate and xenophobia. And so one was led to wonder: Do countries have souls -- with all the moral consequence implied by the concept of soul? If the answer is yes, then it follows that the collective soul can be corrupted and damned just as surely as that of a flesh-and-blood human being. In this election, as in all others, grave matters of policy were at stake, but we sensed something even bigger on the line in 2018 -- nothing less than whether the country was past redeeming.

    Lower, Smaller, Meaner

    “I’m on the ballot,” Trump declared at a rally in Mississippi, and so he was. For the first time in two years, the country would render its verdict on the garish aggressions of his politics, though it bore noting that many members of his party had already voted with their feet. In the preceding months, more than 40 House Republicans had resigned outright or announced that they would not seek reelection, among them the relatively moderate chairs of the Foreign Affairs Committee and the Appropriations Committee, and, most significantly, House Speaker Paul Ryan. It was an extraordinary exodus by any measure, especially for a party holding both chambers of Congress and the White House -- a party possessed, that is, of the kind of power that pols dream of. Yet here were Republicans bailing out in droves.

    The usual reasons were given: the desire to spend more time with family, to confront new challenges, and so forth, but the party’s scorched-earth politics of the past 30 years, the ones that had put Donald Trump in the White House, undoubtedly had something to do with it. The hyper-partisanship championed by Newt Gingrich when he was speaker of the House in the mid-1990s, the embrace of fringe elements like the birther crowd and the alt-right, the systematic trashing of longstanding institutions and traditions (like the weaponizing of the filibuster, to name just one) and now the ultimate scorched-earther in the White House: it’s easy to imagine how the more self-aware members of the Republican caucus could see no viable future for themselves in politics.

    Ryan, in particular, furnished food for thought. Like John Boehner before him, he couldn’t tame the far-right beast that was the Freedom Caucus and he had Trump to deal with too. How many nights had the Speaker tossed and turned in his bed secretly pining for rational Obama? And then there was the massive contradiction of Ryan’s own politics. Eager for Republicans to get credit for the economic expansion that began in June 2009 and was now in its 100th month, Ryan studiously ignored the fact that -- predicting rampant inflation and worse -- he’d opposed Obama’s program of fiscal stimulus and easy monetary policy that had produced the longest expansion in the country’s history. But Ryan’s contradiction cut even deeper. As House Speaker, at the very pinnacle of his career as a supply-side disciple and deficit hawk, he had shepherded into law a legislative agenda that was projected to start producing trillion-dollar-a-year deficits by 2020.

    Paul Ryan had played out his political string. To proceed further could only monsterize his psyche, twist it into a Jekyll-and-Hyde-style schizophrenia, a form of madness not unknown among twenty-first-century American politicians. With Trump as their leader, Republicans had no place to go but lower, smaller, meaner -- and so they went.

    Trump praised and reenacted a Montana congressman’s criminal assault on a reporter, and suggested that U.S. troops open fire on any aspiring immigrant so bold as to throw a rock at them. In Georgia, robocalls described Stacey Abrams, a black woman and the Democratic nominee for governor, as a “poor man’s Aunt Jemima.” Congressman Duncan Hunter put out an ad characterizing his opponent, Ammar Campa-Najjar, as a terrorist sympathizer. Ron DeSantis urged Florida voters not to “monkey this up” by electing Andrew Gillum, a black man, as their governor, while in Kansas, a Republican official called congressional candidate Sharice Davids (a Native American and graduate of Cornell Law School) a “radical socialist kickboxing lesbian” who should be “sent back packing to the reservation.”

    Antonio Delgado, who is black, a Rhodes scholar, and a Harvard Law School graduate, was repeatedly characterized as “a big-city rapper” in ads supporting his opponent for a congressional seat in New York’s Hudson Valley. Representative Kevin McCarthy, jockeying to replace Paul Ryan as leader of the House Republicans, loudly revived the push to fund Trump’s border wall, and Representative Steve King fantasized at a rally that Supreme Court Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor “will elope to Cuba.” Pro-GOP flyers featuring anti-Semitic caricatures were distributed in opposition to Jewish Democratic candidates in Alaska, California, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Washington, and elsewhere.

    The loudest hysterics were reserved for the bedraggled, footsore “caravan of invaders” inching its way north through Mexico, several thousand desperate souls bringing, according to Trump, crime and terrorists. On Fox Business, Chris Farrell, a conservative activist, promoted the ongoing right-wing allegation that George Soros, who is Jewish, was paying migrants to come to the U.S. Kris Kobach, GOP candidate for governor of Kansas, declared that Democrats had “open-border psychosis.” Ted Cruz, fighting for his political life in Texas, led chants of “Build that wall!” at his rallies.

    The final TV ad for Scott Wagner, the GOP nominee for governor of Pennsylvania, asserted that “a dangerous caravan of illegals careens to the border”; this same Scott Wagner had previously urged his Democratic opponent to wear a catcher’s mask because “I’m going to stomp all over your face with golf spikes.” Trump deployed some 5,600 active-duty troops south “to secure the border,” at a cost projected to be as high as $200 million, and his final campaign ad -- deemed so blatantly racist that Facebook and major TV networks, including Fox, refused to air it -- featured scary music, images of brown-skinned people, and a cop-killing undocumented immigrant with no known link to the caravan. The ad’s final image urged: “Stop the Caravan. Vote Republican.”

    It was crude. It was dumb. It was all basically nuts. The question was: how much of America would buy it?

    Record Numbers

    The day after the election, Trump appeared before the media to proclaim “very close to a complete victory.” Then he proceeded to riff on the size of his crowds.

    It would take days -- a week and then some -- to measure properly the scale of the electorate’s repudiation of Trump. Despite surgical gerrymandering and voter-suppression measures that strongly favored the GOP, Democrats took control of the House by flipping 43 seats, for a net gain of 40. It was the biggest Democratic gain since the Watergate midterm of 1974, when Democrats picked up 49 seats, and the Democrats’ 9.4 million lead (and counting) in raw votes this year was the largest margin ever by a party in a midterm.

    Overall turnout was the highest in 50 years: 116 million, or 49.4% of the voting-eligible population, compared to 83 million in 2014. Democrats won women -- who are not only the majority of voters but the most reliable of them -- by 19 percentage points. Particularly in the suburbs, where 50% of voters now live, white women with college degrees broke hard for Democrats, but House Democratic candidates also increased their national vote margin among white working-class women by 13 points.

    Young voters and minorities (think: the future) turned out in unprecedented numbers and voted overwhelmingly Democratic. The Democrats also won independents by 12%, and voters who had opted for a third-party candidate in 2016 by 13%. Trump’s misogyny, racism, and xenophobia helped elect a new House majority that will be nearly half women, a third people of color, and include more Muslim Americans, Native Americans, and LGBTQ members than ever before.

    Republicans increased their razor-thin majority in the Senate by two, but even there evidence of the Trump repudiation was strong. Democrats were defending 26 of the 35 seats in play and, in almost every race, the Democratic candidate outperformed the state’s partisan lean (the average difference between how a state votes and how the overall country votes) while racking up a nationwide total of 50.5 million votes, to the GOP’s 34.5 million.

    Yeah, Beto lost. He also came within 2.6 points of knocking off a well-financed, highly disciplined incumbent in a deep-red state and was instrumental in making Texas newly competitive at both the statewide and local levels. In governors’ races, Democrats flipped seven states to the Republicans’ one and achieved a net gain of more than 300 legislative seats.

    State ballot measures on politically charged issues also trended blue. Arkansas and Missouri voted to raise their minimum wage. Utah, Nebraska, and Idaho voted to expand Medicaid and, with the election of a Democratic governor, Maine will follow through on last year’s winning referendum to expand Medicaid. Florida voters approved a referendum to restore voting rights to former felons. Arizona defeated a Koch brothers-backed measure to privatize public education by a two to one margin.

    Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania -- states crucial to Trump’s Electoral College success in 2016 -- swung dramatically back toward the Democrats in 2018.

    Putting Real Issues Front and Center

    This thing Trump was selling, this white-nationalist-freak-out-throwback special, played well enough to the base to flip Senate seats in North Dakota, Indiana, and Missouri, all states Trump won by big margins in 2016, as well as Florida’s closely contested Senate seat. But here’s the real shocker, the development that made this midterm “transformational,” as reported by Stanley Greenberg in the New York Times, based on a Democracy Corpselection night survey: the Democrats’ biggest gains in 2018 came in rural America. Greenberg also relied on an Edison exit poll for CNN that showed the Republican margin in rural areas shrinking by double digits and a Catalist poll indicating a seven-point shrinkage.

    “Exciting” the base seems to have come at a cost: a 13-point swing by white working-class women, a 14-point swing by white working-class men, and a 7-point swing among all men. While Trump’s Twitter account was acting like the social media equivalent of a spastic colon, Democrats were pushing a decidedly non-hysterical message focused on health care (coverage for preexisting conditions, preserving Obamacare, and protecting Medicare and Medicaid) and basic economic fairness. As for Trump’s manifest unfitness for office, smart Democrats assumed the president himself would pound home that message.

    Yes, there was a blue wave in 2018, and the “centrist” establishment Democrats who have steered the party for the past 30 years are trying to claim it for themselves. Don’t believe them. These establishment centrists -- the ideological heirs of the defunct Democratic Leadership Council who now ply their trade at the Third Way think tank in the capital, along with the big-donor class, the top-dollar Washington consultants, and the data mills that comprise the Democratic election industrial complex -- stand for something far different than the blue-wave centrists who powered the party in 2018.

    For more than 30 years -- ever since the rise of the “New Democrats” and the Democratic Leadership Council in the 1980s -- establishment centrists have practiced the top-down politics of neoliberalism, a politics founded on the free-market gospel: deregulation of banking and finance, friendliness toward corporate monopolies, limited support (at best) for labor unions and workers, the endless “liberalization” of global trade, and reflexive antagonism for the social safety net. As all the numbers show, corporate America and the One Percent reaped the lion’s share of neoliberalism’s benefits, while the Democratic Party’s once-traditional constituencies -- poor people, and the working and middle classes -- fell further and further behind. The party itself -- once the dominant force in national politics, and in the majority of states -- gradually slid into minority status, culminating in the wipeout of 2016.

    2018’s blue-wave centrists are made of different stuff. This year's energy came from the bottom up, thanks to widespread local activism and grassroots organizing, much of it led by women newly politicized in the wake of 2016. The party’s small-donor base became increasingly powerful, enabling candidates like Beto O’Rourke to run robustly financed campaigns while refusing PAC money and the strings that come with it.

    This same small-donor and activist groundswell made Democrats competitive in regions long ago written off by establishment centrists who have long been less focused on the concerns of working people than on cherry-picking just enough Electoral College votes to win the presidency every four years. In 2018, however, we saw Democratic candidates running and winning in deep-red areas while talking up labor unions (Conor Lamb in Pennsylvania), slamming the “rigged system” that neoliberalism produced (Max Rose on New York’s Staten Island), and pushing for common-sense gun control (Lucy McBath in Georgia).

    Democrats interested in taking back the Midwest should look to the example of Ohio’s Sherrod Brown, one of Bernie Sanders’s closest allies in the Senate. A strong voice for labor and the middle class and a longtime skeptic of international trade deals, Brown won reelection by seven percentage points in a state otherwise trending Republican. The same was true for Senator Amy Klobuchar, who has prioritized the interests of working people her entire career. She won reelection by 24 points in Minnesota, a state Trump almost won in 2016.

    The blue-wave centrists put real issues front and center: housing, wages, access to health care, basic fairness and opportunity for working people. Whatever name you want to put to these issues -- centrist, progressive, populist, lunch bucket, kitchen table -- these haven’t been the priorities of the establishment centrists of the past 30 years. For a clue, look no farther than the Third Way’s close ties to K Street, the epicenter of corporate lobbying in Washington, and to the investment banking industry.

    Trump lost in 2018, but he remains nearly as powerful as ever. He’s a sitting president with a ferociously loyal base, a Senate majority that’s about to get bigger, and a federal judiciary that hews further to the right with each new raft of appointments. In the days since the election he’s shown no moderating tendencies, instead threatening the incoming House Democratic majority with a “warlike posture,” firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions, illegally“appointing” a sketchy acting attorney general, further defying the Refugee Act of 1980, banning a CNN reporter from the White House, and defending Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the state-sponsored murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

    Trump is still Trump, and America is still America. In the days after the election, wildfires raged through northern California, leaving scores dead and many thousands homeless, and in the country’s 307th mass shooting in the first 313 days of 2018, a gunman killed 13 people at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California.

    Welcome to the struggle for the country’s soul. We haven’t seen anything yet.

    By Ben Fountain

    Evil days.

    The midterms were bearing down on us like a runaway train with Donald Trump in the driver’s seat and the throttle wide open, the Presidential Special hell-bent for the bottom. “Go Trump Go!” tweeted David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, as if the president needed anyone’s encouragement. There had been no slacking after pipe bombs were sent to a number of his critics; nor after two black people were killed in Kentucky by a white man who, minutes before, had tried to enter a predominantly black church; nor after 11 worshippers in Pittsburgh were murdered at the Tree of Life Congregation synagogue by a man who’d expressed special loathing for HIAS, a Jewish refugee resettlement and advocacy organization. “HIAS likes to bring invaders in that kill our people,” Robert Bowers posted on his Gab account hours before the massacre. “I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I’m going in.”

    Trump, relentless Trump, went right on raging about “invasions,” left-wing “mobs,” globalists, MS-13, and “caravan after caravan [of] illegal immigrants” invited in by Democrats to murder Americans, vote illegally, and mooch off our health care system. “Hate speech leads to hate crimes,” Rabbi Jeffrey Myers told the president in Pittsburgh several days after the murders. The FBI had previously reported a large spike in hate crimes over the previous two years, and the Anti-Defamation League noted a 60% rise in anti-Semitic incidents from 2016 to 2017. Then there was this, reported in the New York Times on the day before the election: “Advisers to the president said his foes take his campaign rally language too literally; as outrageous as it might seem, it is more entertainment, intended to generate a crowd reaction.” And Trump himself, when asked why he wasn’t campaigning on the strong economy, responded: “Sometimes it’s not as exciting to talk about the economy.”

    Not as exciting as, say, hate and xenophobia. And so one was led to wonder: Do countries have souls -- with all the moral consequence implied by the concept of soul? If the answer is yes, then it follows that the collective soul can be corrupted and damned just as surely as that of a flesh-and-blood human being. In this election, as in all others, grave matters of policy were at stake, but we sensed something even bigger on the line in 2018 -- nothing less than whether the country was past redeeming.

    Lower, Smaller, Meaner

    “I’m on the ballot,” Trump declared at a rally in Mississippi, and so he was. For the first time in two years, the country would render its verdict on the garish aggressions of his politics, though it bore noting that many members of his party had already voted with their feet. In the preceding months, more than 40 House Republicans had resigned outright or announced that they would not seek reelection, among them the relatively moderate chairs of the Foreign Affairs Committee and the Appropriations Committee, and, most significantly, House Speaker Paul Ryan. It was an extraordinary exodus by any measure, especially for a party holding both chambers of Congress and the White House -- a party possessed, that is, of the kind of power that pols dream of. Yet here were Republicans bailing out in droves.

    The usual reasons were given: the desire to spend more time with family, to confront new challenges, and so forth, but the party’s scorched-earth politics of the past 30 years, the ones that had put Donald Trump in the White House, undoubtedly had something to do with it. The hyper-partisanship championed by Newt Gingrich when he was speaker of the House in the mid-1990s, the embrace of fringe elements like the birther crowd and the alt-right, the systematic trashing of longstanding institutions and traditions (like the weaponizing of the filibuster, to name just one) and now the ultimate scorched-earther in the White House: it’s easy to imagine how the more self-aware members of the Republican caucus could see no viable future for themselves in politics.

    Ryan, in particular, furnished food for thought. Like John Boehner before him, he couldn’t tame the far-right beast that was the Freedom Caucus and he had Trump to deal with too. How many nights had the Speaker tossed and turned in his bed secretly pining for rational Obama? And then there was the massive contradiction of Ryan’s own politics. Eager for Republicans to get credit for the economic expansion that began in June 2009 and was now in its 100th month, Ryan studiously ignored the fact that -- predicting rampant inflation and worse -- he’d opposed Obama’s program of fiscal stimulus and easy monetary policy that had produced the longest expansion in the country’s history. But Ryan’s contradiction cut even deeper. As House Speaker, at the very pinnacle of his career as a supply-side disciple and deficit hawk, he had shepherded into law a legislative agenda that was projected to start producing trillion-dollar-a-year deficits by 2020.

    Paul Ryan had played out his political string. To proceed further could only monsterize his psyche, twist it into a Jekyll-and-Hyde-style schizophrenia, a form of madness not unknown among twenty-first-century American politicians. With Trump as their leader, Republicans had no place to go but lower, smaller, meaner -- and so they went.

    Trump praised and reenacted a Montana congressman’s criminal assault on a reporter, and suggested that U.S. troops open fire on any aspiring immigrant so bold as to throw a rock at them. In Georgia, robocalls described Stacey Abrams, a black woman and the Democratic nominee for governor, as a “poor man’s Aunt Jemima.” Congressman Duncan Hunter put out an ad characterizing his opponent, Ammar Campa-Najjar, as a terrorist sympathizer. Ron DeSantis urged Florida voters not to “monkey this up” by electing Andrew Gillum, a black man, as their governor, while in Kansas, a Republican official called congressional candidate Sharice Davids (a Native American and graduate of Cornell Law School) a “radical socialist kickboxing lesbian” who should be “sent back packing to the reservation.”

    Antonio Delgado, who is black, a Rhodes scholar, and a Harvard Law School graduate, was repeatedly characterized as “a big-city rapper” in ads supporting his opponent for a congressional seat in New York’s Hudson Valley. Representative Kevin McCarthy, jockeying to replace Paul Ryan as leader of the House Republicans, loudly revived the push to fund Trump’s border wall, and Representative Steve King fantasized at a rally that Supreme Court Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor “will elope to Cuba.” Pro-GOP flyers featuring anti-Semitic caricatures were distributed in opposition to Jewish Democratic candidates in Alaska, California, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Washington, and elsewhere.

    The loudest hysterics were reserved for the bedraggled, footsore “caravan of invaders” inching its way north through Mexico, several thousand desperate souls bringing, according to Trump, crime and terrorists. On Fox Business, Chris Farrell, a conservative activist, promoted the ongoing right-wing allegation that George Soros, who is Jewish, was paying migrants to come to the U.S. Kris Kobach, GOP candidate for governor of Kansas, declared that Democrats had “open-border psychosis.” Ted Cruz, fighting for his political life in Texas, led chants of “Build that wall!” at his rallies.

    The final TV ad for Scott Wagner, the GOP nominee for governor of Pennsylvania, asserted that “a dangerous caravan of illegals careens to the border”; this same Scott Wagner had previously urged his Democratic opponent to wear a catcher’s mask because “I’m going to stomp all over your face with golf spikes.” Trump deployed some 5,600 active-duty troops south “to secure the border,” at a cost projected to be as high as $200 million, and his final campaign ad -- deemed so blatantly racist that Facebook and major TV networks, including Fox, refused to air it -- featured scary music, images of brown-skinned people, and a cop-killing undocumented immigrant with no known link to the caravan. The ad’s final image urged: “Stop the Caravan. Vote Republican.”

    It was crude. It was dumb. It was all basically nuts. The question was: how much of America would buy it?

    Record Numbers

    The day after the election, Trump appeared before the media to proclaim “very close to a complete victory.” Then he proceeded to riff on the size of his crowds.

    It would take days -- a week and then some -- to measure properly the scale of the electorate’s repudiation of Trump. Despite surgical gerrymandering and voter-suppression measures that strongly favored the GOP, Democrats took control of the House by flipping 43 seats, for a net gain of 40. It was the biggest Democratic gain since the Watergate midterm of 1974, when Democrats picked up 49 seats, and the Democrats’ 9.4 million lead (and counting) in raw votes this year was the largest margin ever by a party in a midterm.

    Overall turnout was the highest in 50 years: 116 million, or 49.4% of the voting-eligible population, compared to 83 million in 2014. Democrats won women -- who are not only the majority of voters but the most reliable of them -- by 19 percentage points. Particularly in the suburbs, where 50% of voters now live, white women with college degrees broke hard for Democrats, but House Democratic candidates also increased their national vote margin among white working-class women by 13 points.

    Young voters and minorities (think: the future) turned out in unprecedented numbers and voted overwhelmingly Democratic. The Democrats also won independents by 12%, and voters who had opted for a third-party candidate in 2016 by 13%. Trump’s misogyny, racism, and xenophobia helped elect a new House majority that will be nearly half women, a third people of color, and include more Muslim Americans, Native Americans, and LGBTQ members than ever before.

    Republicans increased their razor-thin majority in the Senate by two, but even there evidence of the Trump repudiation was strong. Democrats were defending 26 of the 35 seats in play and, in almost every race, the Democratic candidate outperformed the state’s partisan lean (the average difference between how a state votes and how the overall country votes) while racking up a nationwide total of 50.5 million votes, to the GOP’s 34.5 million.

    Yeah, Beto lost. He also came within 2.6 points of knocking off a well-financed, highly disciplined incumbent in a deep-red state and was instrumental in making Texas newly competitive at both the statewide and local levels. In governors’ races, Democrats flipped seven states to the Republicans’ one and achieved a net gain of more than 300 legislative seats.

    State ballot measures on politically charged issues also trended blue. Arkansas and Missouri voted to raise their minimum wage. Utah, Nebraska, and Idaho voted to expand Medicaid and, with the election of a Democratic governor, Maine will follow through on last year’s winning referendum to expand Medicaid. Florida voters approved a referendum to restore voting rights to former felons. Arizona defeated a Koch brothers-backed measure to privatize public education by a two to one margin.

    Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania -- states crucial to Trump’s Electoral College success in 2016 -- swung dramatically back toward the Democrats in 2018.

    Putting Real Issues Front and Center

    This thing Trump was selling, this white-nationalist-freak-out-throwback special, played well enough to the base to flip Senate seats in North Dakota, Indiana, and Missouri, all states Trump won by big margins in 2016, as well as Florida’s closely contested Senate seat. But here’s the real shocker, the development that made this midterm “transformational,” as reported by Stanley Greenberg in the New York Times, based on a Democracy Corpselection night survey: the Democrats’ biggest gains in 2018 came in rural America. Greenberg also relied on an Edison exit poll for CNN that showed the Republican margin in rural areas shrinking by double digits and a Catalist poll indicating a seven-point shrinkage.

    “Exciting” the base seems to have come at a cost: a 13-point swing by white working-class women, a 14-point swing by white working-class men, and a 7-point swing among all men. While Trump’s Twitter account was acting like the social media equivalent of a spastic colon, Democrats were pushing a decidedly non-hysterical message focused on health care (coverage for preexisting conditions, preserving Obamacare, and protecting Medicare and Medicaid) and basic economic fairness. As for Trump’s manifest unfitness for office, smart Democrats assumed the president himself would pound home that message.

    Yes, there was a blue wave in 2018, and the “centrist” establishment Democrats who have steered the party for the past 30 years are trying to claim it for themselves. Don’t believe them. These establishment centrists -- the ideological heirs of the defunct Democratic Leadership Council who now ply their trade at the Third Way think tank in the capital, along with the big-donor class, the top-dollar Washington consultants, and the data mills that comprise the Democratic election industrial complex -- stand for something far different than the blue-wave centrists who powered the party in 2018.

    For more than 30 years -- ever since the rise of the “New Democrats” and the Democratic Leadership Council in the 1980s -- establishment centrists have practiced the top-down politics of neoliberalism, a politics founded on the free-market gospel: deregulation of banking and finance, friendliness toward corporate monopolies, limited support (at best) for labor unions and workers, the endless “liberalization” of global trade, and reflexive antagonism for the social safety net. As all the numbers show, corporate America and the One Percent reaped the lion’s share of neoliberalism’s benefits, while the Democratic Party’s once-traditional constituencies -- poor people, and the working and middle classes -- fell further and further behind. The party itself -- once the dominant force in national politics, and in the majority of states -- gradually slid into minority status, culminating in the wipeout of 2016.

    2018’s blue-wave centrists are made of different stuff. This year's energy came from the bottom up, thanks to widespread local activism and grassroots organizing, much of it led by women newly politicized in the wake of 2016. The party’s small-donor base became increasingly powerful, enabling candidates like Beto O’Rourke to run robustly financed campaigns while refusing PAC money and the strings that come with it.

    This same small-donor and activist groundswell made Democrats competitive in regions long ago written off by establishment centrists who have long been less focused on the concerns of working people than on cherry-picking just enough Electoral College votes to win the presidency every four years. In 2018, however, we saw Democratic candidates running and winning in deep-red areas while talking up labor unions (Conor Lamb in Pennsylvania), slamming the “rigged system” that neoliberalism produced (Max Rose on New York’s Staten Island), and pushing for common-sense gun control (Lucy McBath in Georgia).

    Democrats interested in taking back the Midwest should look to the example of Ohio’s Sherrod Brown, one of Bernie Sanders’s closest allies in the Senate. A strong voice for labor and the middle class and a longtime skeptic of international trade deals, Brown won reelection by seven percentage points in a state otherwise trending Republican. The same was true for Senator Amy Klobuchar, who has prioritized the interests of working people her entire career. She won reelection by 24 points in Minnesota, a state Trump almost won in 2016.

    The blue-wave centrists put real issues front and center: housing, wages, access to health care, basic fairness and opportunity for working people. Whatever name you want to put to these issues -- centrist, progressive, populist, lunch bucket, kitchen table -- these haven’t been the priorities of the establishment centrists of the past 30 years. For a clue, look no farther than the Third Way’s close ties to K Street, the epicenter of corporate lobbying in Washington, and to the investment banking industry.

    Trump lost in 2018, but he remains nearly as powerful as ever. He’s a sitting president with a ferociously loyal base, a Senate majority that’s about to get bigger, and a federal judiciary that hews further to the right with each new raft of appointments. In the days since the election he’s shown no moderating tendencies, instead threatening the incoming House Democratic majority with a “warlike posture,” firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions, illegally“appointing” a sketchy acting attorney general, further defying the Refugee Act of 1980, banning a CNN reporter from the White House, and defending Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the state-sponsored murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

    Trump is still Trump, and America is still America. In the days after the election, wildfires raged through northern California, leaving scores dead and many thousands homeless, and in the country’s 307th mass shooting in the first 313 days of 2018, a gunman killed 13 people at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California.

    Welcome to the struggle for the country’s soul. We haven’t seen anything yet.

    Eventually it happens to everyone. As we age, even if we're healthy, the heart becomes less flexible, more stiff and just isn't as efficient in processing oxygen as it used to be. In most people the first signs show up in the 50s or early 60s. And among people who don't exercise, the underlying changes can start even sooner. "The heart gets smaller — stiffer," says Dr. Ben Levine , a sports cardiologist at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and director of the Institute for Exercise and Environmental Medicine at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, in Dallas. Think of the heart muscle as a rubber band, Levine says. In the beginning, the rubber band is flexible and pliable. But put it in a drawer for 20 years and it will emerge dry and brittle. "That's what happens to the heart and blood vessels," he says. And down the road, that sort of stiffness can get worse, he notes, leading to the breathlessness and other symptoms of heart failure , an inability of the heart to

    Yes, the Four Seasons and I liked it a lot, perhaps because it's less expensive than its sisters in other parts of the world. At this local branch of the franchise, chicken Quesadillas only cost $8.00 as opposed to $18.00 and guess what, they're just as tasty.

    Conversation was good too, ranging from dog training, night vision systems, hay bale house construction and off-grid living, to pistol shooting and theology. Everyone agreed that liberal clergypersons had no business spreading their vapid wizardry and that "city priests" had no business in the country.


    A Typical City Priest

    "But I'm a city priest," I announced proudly, and the former head of Dallas SWAT took a bite of his steak, "You're different." Well he had a point and ten years of living, riding, shooting, hunting and fishing in country Texas counts. I wouldn't swap it out for the metrosprawl, that's for sure. 

    Saying that, I miss London, pubs, butchers, book shops, the French House in Soho and all kinds of things about England. That said, Texas has frontier spirit. Don't ever scorn it.

              Patriots extend consecutive winning seasons record by beating Vikings      Cache   Translate Page      
    Nancy Lane | Boston Herald

    The New England Patriots have had a long run of success that spans almost two decades now.

    Consistency is key, in the fact that the team has 18 straight seasons with a .500 record or better. The NFL record for most consecutive .500 seasons is 21, set by the Dallas Cowboys from 1965 through 1985.

    With a 24-10 victory over the Minnesota Vikings yesterday, the team was able to secure that 18th straight winning season. It was all the way back in 2000 during Bill Belichick’s first year as a head coach, that the Patriots were held under .500 with a record of 5-11.

    It’s hard to have that kind of stability and success for so long, but since that 2000 season, New England is on a very impressive run that we all are sure to remember.

    Review:
    As a huge fan of the original Thieves books it pained me to say that I didn't really enjoy Ripper, the first book in this spin off series. I felt that a lot of the people we already knew and loved were acting completely out of character and I just hadn't connected to the new narrator Kelsey as much as I had with Zoey in the original books. So I was a little wary going into Addict, I wanted to like it but I wasn't sure if I would so I'm very happy to report that this was a HUGE improvement for me.

    Now that Kelsey knows more about who and what she is she's starting to become more confident in herself and her abilities which made her a more interesting character to follow. Apart from a dodgy start where I wanted to slap some sense into him Daniel was much more like his old self in this book and we saw a bit more of Devlin and Zoey too. I'm glad that the main focus of this series is with the newer characters though and I really loved the developments with Grayson in this book, I liked the addition of werewolf Trent and I loved seeing Zach as an uncle.

    I have to admit I'm not sold on Kelsey's relationship with Marcus though. I love Marcus as a character but I just don't feel the chemistry between him and Kelsey, it felt a bit forced and frankly a little bit creepy because of the special connection they had thanks to him being her trainer. I think I'd prefer them with a platonic mentor type relationship so I'm definitely team Grayson (& quite possibly team Grayson & Trent!) at the moment. Perhaps Lexi Blake will convince me otherwise but at the moment I think Marcus would be much happier with someone else and I'm hoping we'll get to see that in another spin off.

    It was good to see Kelsey starting to rebuild bridges with some of the people who let her down in the first book. There were a lot of people who did things that hurt her previously but I think some of them were doing it for the right reasons so that's a little more forgivable than what Daniel did. The overarching plot of this spin off definitely seems to be building up to a war between the vampires and demons and things are getting very interesting on that front. I'm not quite sure what Daniel is hoping to achieve with this because no war can be won without a lot of casualties along the way but he was always a long term planner so I expect he knows what he is doing.

    Now that the series has started to gain momentum I'm much more excited about continuing it and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next for Kelsey and her friends.

              How We Found Donald Trump Jr.’s Secret Investment in a Fundraiser’s Business      Cache   Translate Page      

    Donald Trump Jr. and Gentry Beach, a Dallas-based investor and college friend of Trump Jr., have done business together before, despite past claims by both men that their relationship is strictly personal.

    But a new story by ProPublica reveals that Trump became a shareholder last year in Beach’s hydroponic lettuce company, while Beach was seeking government support for his other business interests. Emails obtained by ProPublica via the Freedom of Information Act show that since President Donald Trump’s election, Beach sought backing for energy projects in the Dominican Republic and India. Officials say he never officially applied for government financing.

    Here’s how ProPublica uncovered a paper trail revealing Trump Jr.’s investment in the vertical hydroponic lettuce farm now selling packaged greens in Walmarts in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

    Trump Organization Employee Forms MSMDF Agriculture LLC (September 2017)

    On Sept. 13, 2017, eight months after Donald Trump entered the White House, a Trump Organization employee formed a new company in Delaware called MSMDF Agriculture LLC. The public filing provided no other information about the entity, who controlled it or what it was to be used for.

    Gentry Beach Seeks Federal Support for his Global Business Interests (October 2017)

    At the same time that Beach served as co-chairman of the hydroponic lettuce growing company, emails obtained by ProPublica show, he sought government funds for his other business interests from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation. OPIC is a federal agency that offers loans and guarantees to American companies looking to expand into emerging markets. In one email from October 2017, Beach emailed OPIC head Ray Washburne about his infrastructure and energy projects in the Dominican Republic, writing that the storm-damaged country “could really use some US investment and support.” An OPIC spokeswoman says that Beach hasn’t submitted a formal application for funding and that the agency carefully vets its applicants.

    Trump Jr. Listed as President of MSMDF in New York City Filing (December 2017)

    Pursuant to its contracts with the city of New York to run an ice skating rink in Central Park and a golf course in the Bronx, the Trump Organization is required to file annual disclosure reports listing entities it controls as well as those for which its executives serve as principals or officers. In December 2017, the company listed Trump Jr. as the president, secretary and treasurer of MSMDF Agriculture LLC in its disclosure report. In a statement, Alan Garten, the Trump Organization’s top lawyer, said MSMDF is “wholly owned and controlled” by Trump Jr., and isn’t affiliated with the Trump Organization.

    Eden Green Announced Millions Raised From Investors (June 2018)

    The company announced in June that it had raised millions. Just weeks later, its affiliate Eden Green Holdings UK Ltd. disclosed to British regulators that it had issued hundreds of thousands of shares to roughly two dozen investors. Among them? MSMDF Agriculture LLC, which has 7,500 shares.

    This document for the first time linked the Delaware-incorporated entity with the indoor lettuce farming business run by campaign fundraiser Beach. That summer the company publicly announced it had raised $22 million from its private investors without naming them. But one of the investors, an entity called Cox-Eden, L.P., used by a wealthy oil and gas family in Midland, Texas, said in court papers filed months later that it had supplied Eden Green with $20 million of the $22 million raised.

    Beach is listed as one of the seven principals of Eden Green, according to court filings, along with Grady “Trey” Thomas III, Eric Schick, Jaco Booyens, and brothers Eugene and Jacques van Buuren and Gerhard Ehlers. Beach is named co-chairman of Eden Green, according to the company’s website.

    Eden Green’s Biggest Investor Claims Mismanagement, Settles Case (October - November 2018)

    On Oct. 30, 2018, Eden Green’s biggest investor filed a lawsuit in Dallas County Court, alleging that company officials had blown through more than $19 million in just nine months. The lawsuit also claimed company executives paid themselves salaries as high as $300,000 and had put the company “on the precipice of failure.” But less than a month after the court papers were filed, the parties reached a settlement for undisclosed terms. A spokesman for Eden Green disputed the claims of exorbitant compensation and said the company has plenty of cash.

              Trump Jr. Invested in a Hydroponic Lettuce Company Whose Chair Was Seeking Trump Administration Funds — “Trump, Inc.” Podcast Extra      Cache   Translate Page      

    Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, took a stake last year in a startup whose co-chairman is a major Trump campaign fundraiser who has sought financial support from the federal government for his other business interests, according to records obtained by ProPublica.

    The fundraiser, Texas money manager Gentry Beach, and Trump Jr. attended college together, are godfather to one of each other’s sons and have collaborated on investments — and on the Trump presidential campaign. Since Trump’s election, Beach has attempted to obtain federal assistance for projects in Asia, the Caribbean and South America, and he has met or corresponded with top officials in the National Security Council, Interior Department and Overseas Private Investment Corporation.

    Beach and others at the startup, Eden Green Technology, have touted their connections to the first family to impress partners, suppliers and others, according to five current and former business associates. Richard Venn, an early backer of Eden Green, recalls the company’s founder mentioning “interest from the Trump family.” Another associate said Beach bragged about his ties to the Trumps in a business meeting.

    The investment is one of just a handful of known business ventures pursued by Trump Jr. since his father moved into the White House almost two years ago. In addition to being a top campaign surrogate and public booster, Trump Jr. serves as an executive vice president of his father’s company and one of just two trustees of the trust holding the president’s assets.

    Listen to the Episode

    Ethics experts have consistently criticized these arrangements, arguing that they invite those seeking to influence the government to do so by attempting to enrich the president or his family members with favorable business opportunities.

    Trump Jr. invested in the startup, a company that grows organic lettuce in a hydroponic greenhouse, last year, records show. Those records don’t state how much money — if any — Trump paid for his 7,500 shares. But the shares would have been worth about $650,000 at the end of last year, based on a formula used by another shareholder in a recent court filing. Neither Trump Jr. nor the company have disclosed his investment publicly. Trump Jr. obtained the stake through a limited liability company called MSMDF Agriculture LLC, which was set up by a Trump Organization employee last fall.

    The key ethical question, said Virginia Canter, chief ethics lawyer at the nonprofit Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, is whether Beach’s involvement with Eden Green, and Trump Jr.’s investment in it, are based on the business merits — or on the possibility of cashing in on connections to power. “Why is Trump Jr. being given this opportunity?” she asked. “It definitely has the appearance of trying to gain access by any means to curry favor with the administration.”

    The willingness of Eden Green to invoke the Trump name in its business dealings raises further ethical concerns, experts said, particularly if potential customers understand that they are giving contracts to a startup whose success could enrich the president’s son.

    Neither Trump Jr. nor his spokesman responded to messages seeking comment on his relationship with Beach and investment in Eden Green. A White House spokeswoman didn’t respond to emailed questions. Alan Garten, the Trump Organization’s top lawyer, said in a statement that Trump Jr.’s investment is a personal one. The entity through which it was made “is not owned or controlled by, or affiliated in any way with, The Trump Organization,” Garten said.

    Last fall, Eden Green concluded a deal with Walmart. Today, the giant retailer sells the company’s lettuce, kale and other greens at about 100 stores in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. (Eden Green’s sole facility is a 44,023-square-foot greenhouse outside Fort Worth, where it grows the greens in 18-foot vertical tubes.)

    Walmart interacts with government regulators on an array of matters — everything from labor practices and land use to securities filings — but there is no indication that Walmart is aware of Trump Jr.’s connection to Eden Green. (Separately, Walmart contributed $150,000 to Trump’s inaugural committee. Beach was a finance vice chair of that committee, but a Beach spokesman says he has never met with Walmart executives.)

    Molly Blakeman, a Walmart spokeswoman, declined to comment on Eden Green or its investors. “We don’t talk about our relationships with our suppliers,” said Blakeman, who added that Walmart has “supported inaugural activities” in the past.

    Andrew Kolvet, a spokesman for Beach and the other Eden Green executives, said it’s “categorically false” that the Trump name was invoked by Eden Green officials. Kolvet cited a corporate policy that forbids discussing investors “with any current or potential client.” He also said Trump Jr. isn’t involved with company operations and bought into Eden Green during “U.S. friends and family fundraising efforts.”

    A recent lawsuit asserts that Eden Green is in financial trouble. In October, the company’s largest shareholder, an entity controlled by a wealthy oil and gas family from Midland, Texas, filed suit in state court in Dallas, alleging “gross project mismanagement.” The suit accused Beach and six executives, all of them board members, of paying themselves extravagant salaries (allegedly $250,000 to $300,000 per year) and putting the company “on the precipice of failure.” A financial consultant hired to examine the company’s books asserted that Eden Green executives spent more than $19.4 million in the first nine months of 2018 — a daunting sum for a company that reported having raised a total of $22 million as of June — while generating $9,000 in revenues.

    In late November, less than a month after the suit was filed, it was settled on confidential terms. Kolvet disputed the compensation figures asserted in the litigation, saying that the company’s pay is “in accordance with industry standards.” He maintained that Eden Green’s prospects are good. As with many startups, he said, “things don’t go in a straight line.” Kolvet asserted that the company has plenty of operating cash.


    Trump Jr., now 40, and Beach, now 43, met at the University of Pennsylvania two decades ago. Both are the sons of wealthy businessmen, one in real estate, one in oil and gas. Beach’s father has since been laid low: Last month he was sentenced to four months in federal detention, plus two years of supervised release, for bankruptcy fraud.

    Beach was a groomsman at Trump Jr.’s wedding (Trump Jr. and his wife recently separated). Beach and Trump Jr. like to hunt and once considered buying a hunting preserve in Mexico together. According to a 2010 deposition testimony by Trump Jr., they talked business during lunches at Rothmann’s steakhouse in New York.

    Both have struggled in business at times. In 2009, Trump Jr. and others (including one person who pleaded guilty to an unrelated criminal fraud charge in 2010) formed a company that would sell concrete panels for home constructions out of a warehouse in North Charleston, South Carolina. The business quickly became mired in lawsuits seeking payment for unpaid bills. Trump Jr. made the situation more precarious by personally guaranteeing a $3.7 million loan for the project. Days before the note was due, the Trump Organization purchased the debt, eventually taking over the warehouse and selling it all back to Trump Jr.’s original business partner, according to press accounts.

    For his part, Beach’s career path has also included some travails. He spent a year or so at Enron and then moved into finance. Beach worked for a hedge fund and remains locked in litigation with it more than a decade later. (He claims he wasn’t paid his full compensation; the fund claims he was “responsible for the destruction of millions of dollars of investor capital.”) Beach now runs a “family office focused on private equity investments” out of a Dallas office that Eden Green uses as its corporate address.

    Trump Jr. has at least twice before invested with Beach in deals that didn’t pan out. Trump Jr. put $200,000 in a dry Texas oil well managed by Beach’s father, according to testimony by Trump Jr. He also lost an unknown sum in a failed African mining company affiliated with Beach’s uncle.

    But Trump Jr. stuck with his friend. The Associated Press reported this year that the two formed a company last October to pursue technology investments.

    Then there was Eden Green. By the time Trump invested last fall, the company had already run into problems. It first launched in 2013 in South Africa with an ambitious mission: to feed the world through a highly efficient indoor farming system deploying patented technology intended to yield 10 to 12 harvests a year, compared with two or three for conventional agriculture.

    There’s a market for vegetables grown in controlled greenhouse environments as big retailers increasingly push for cleaner, more reliable and locally grown alternatives. But the challenges are significant. Energy costs run high, and there are myriad difficulties associated with scaling up to an industrial-size system.

    That’s what happened in Eden Green’s first iteration, according to a half dozen early backers and associates. The produce may have been sustainable — but the business model wasn’t. The CEO of its European unit wrote in an October 2017 email obtained by ProPublica that the company had “been bleeding money and resources for almost 2 years now.” In the fall of 2017, Eden Green’s founders cemented a deal to hand over majority control to a group of U.S. investors led by Beach, current and former business associates said.

    This was the company Trump Jr. bought into. He used an innocuous-sounding limited liability company, called MSMDF Agriculture LLC, to make the investment. ProPublica discovered MSMDF after the Trump Organization listed it in New York City filings among dozens of other entities it controlled. (Because the Trump Organization has contracts with the city to run the Wollman skating rink in Central Park and a golf course in the Bronx, the city requires the company to file disclosures.) The Trump Organization told ProPublica that MSMDF is not in fact owned by the Trump Organization but was included in the disclosure form because it’s controlled by Trump Jr., who was described in the form as MSMDF’s president, secretary and treasurer.

    MSMDF was formed by a Trump Organization employee in September 2017 in Delaware, according to incorporation papers. Eden Green Holdings UK, Ltd., an affiliate of the Texas-based company, then listed MSMDF among its roughly two dozen shareholders in a 2018 report filed with British regulators.


    The Trump Jr.-Beach connection has been most visible in the political arena. Last year, for example, Trump Jr. publicly thanked Beach and their mutual friend Tommy Hicks Jr., another wealthy investor from Dallas, for their fundraising during the 2016 campaign. “We couldn’t have done it without you guys,” Trump Jr. said of his buddies to a crowd of Republican donors in March 2017. “It was just absolutely incredible.”

    In the foreword to a recent book, Trump Jr. reiterated the message, writing that a “rag tag army” — Trump Jr., Beach, Hicks and Charlie Kirk, the firebrand chief of the pro-Trump organization, Turning Point USA — barnstormed the country in 2016, raising “over 150 million dollars in ninety days.”

    Watch Donald Trump Jr. Thank Gentry Beach, Tommy Hicks Jr. for Trump Campaign Fundraising

    Trump Jr. mentioned Beach and Hicks Jr. at a dinner hosted by the Dallas County Republicans in March 2017 and invested in Beach’s company Eden Green through an LLC created months after President Trump’s inauguration.

    Since Trump’s election, Beach has met with top administration figures on multiple occasions. For example, according to the AP, he lobbied National Security Council officials to relax sanctions against Venezuela to create opportunities for U.S. companies. He attended a private lunch with Republican donors and Interior secretary Ryan Zinke.

    Beach has denied leveraging his ties to the first family. Last month, Beach told a TV interviewer in Croatia, where he said he was exploring a “truly spectacular” $100 million real estate development, “I don’t need anything from the government, thankfully, except normal police protection in my hometown.”

    But newly obtained emails show that Beach wanted government backing for his private business interests at the same time he was running Eden Green. In October 2017, Beach pitched Ray Washburne, who heads the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, a government agency that offers loans and guarantees to American companies looking to expand into emerging markets, according to emails obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. (Before joining OPIC, Washburne was a Dallas investor and a top fundraiser for Trump. He and Beach move in the same circles and have friends in common.)

    “The Dominican Republic could really use some US investment and support,” Beach wrote in one email to Washburne, describing his various projects there, which included “a power plant upgrade to an existing tin mine” as well as liquid natural gas infrastructure. He invited OPIC officials to travel with him to the Dominican Republic “If permitted, we would be happy to handle all transportation from DC to DR and back,” he wrote in a follow-up note. (Such a trip never occurred, according to an OPIC spokesperson.)

    A month later, the emails show, Beach also lobbied on another project, arranging a call with his business partner and one of Washburne’s top deputies regarding an “India Oppty,” which appeared to involve an energy fund. Separately, Beach also introduced Washburne to the head of oil giant Exxon Mobil’s Africa operations, with whom Beach said he had gone shooting at Blenheim Palace in England, where the Churchill family resided for three centuries. And Beach connected another Washburne aide with a South African mining executive who Beach described as “one of my partners.”

    OPIC spokeswoman Amanda Burke said Beach has not submitted any formal applications for agency funding. “OPIC routinely meets with a variety of businesses and stakeholders,” she said, adding that formal applications trigger background and credit checks and “go through several levels of agency vetting and approval.”

    Asked whether having a Trump connection would disqualify a person from receiving OPIC support, Burke emailed that “in general, an individual’s personal or legal business interests would not disqualify them from applying. However, certain relationships may cause board members or other decision makers of OPIC to be conflicted out of the decision-making process on potential projects.”

    Luka Doncic aportó 21 puntos y nueve rebotes como líder de los Dallas Mavericks, que ganaron 111-102 a los Portland Trail Blazers. Los Mavericks tienen una marca favorable de 12-10 tras conseguir dos victorias seguidas y quedan segundos en la División Suroeste, con solo un partido de desventaja ante los líderes Memphis Grizzlies. Doncic, que encabezó una lista de cinco jugadores con dobles dígitos anotadores, desatascó el partido en su tramo final con dos magníficas acciones: primero, un triple sensacional que dio ventaja de nueve puntos a los Mavs. Después, con una extraordinaria asistencia desde su propio campo a Dennis Smith Jr., más propia de un quarterback de los Cowboys de fútbol americano que de un jugador de baloncesto.

              La FIBA diseña el Mundial más difícil de la historia      Cache   Translate Page      
    España es desde el pasado fin de semana una de las 17 selecciones clasificadas ya para el Mundial de 2019. Quedan, por tanto, otros 15 equipos más que saldrán de los diferentes procesos de clasificación aún abiertos a lo largo de todo el mundo. En total, la FIBA hará sitio a 32 conjuntos nacionales en China, donde buscarán derrocar a Estados Unidos, actual campeón. Para conseguirlo tendrán que superar un sistema de competición complicado que exigirá estar a tope desde el primero hasta el último día. La FIBA ha eliminado los octavos de final, presentes en la Copa del Mundo desde 2006, y en su lugar ha instaurado una doble fase previa a los cruces. Habrá que superar dos rondas para estar en cuartos de final. Dos grupos de cuatro equipos que no permitirán ni un despiste. Los 32 clasificados se dividirán en ocho grupos de cuatro y de ahí saldrán los que disputarán una segunda fase de cuatro grupos con otros tantos equipos (acumulando las victorias y las derrotas de esa primera fase). Los dos mejores de cada grupo serán los que pasen a cuartos de final. El próximo sábado se sabrá qué equipos serán cabezas de serie en el sorteo. Plazas para los Juegos Olímpicos Uno de los puntos importantes del Mundial, más allá de las tres medallas que se reparten, es la clasificación para los Juegos de Tokio 2020. En China habrá siete equipos que se clasificarán para esa cita olímpica, pero no serán los que acaben más arriba. Para determinarlo, se tendrá que tener en cuenta la cuota de continentes. Irán, por tanto, los dos mejores europeos, los dos mejores americanos, el mejor africano, el primero de oceanía y el mejor asiático. Los que se queden fuera de ese reparto, tendrán que acudir a un preolímpico durísimo que repartirá otras 4 plazas entre 24 participantes.

James aportó 28 puntos que lo dejaron al frente del ataque de los Lakers (13-9), que tuvieron a seis jugadores con números de dos dígitos y consiguieron la segunda victoria en noches seguidas. Es la tercera vez, en las cinco series de partidos en noches seguidas disputadas en lo que va de temporada, que los Lakers ganaron los dos encuentros. LeBron James en la victoria de Los Ángeles Lakers ante Dallas Mavericks: 28 puntos 5 rebotes 4 asistencias#LakeShow pic.twitter.com/XuCxjKeZnG— More Than A Game (@Pasion_Basket1) 1 de diciembre de 2018El alero Brandon Ingram, el jugador de mayor confianza y proyección para James dentro de los Lakers, respondió con otros 19 puntos, que lo dejaron como segundo máximo encestador. La victoria de los Lakers no fue fácil después que durante la mayoría de los tres primeros cuartos del partido estuvieron abajo en el marcador y con una desventaja que llegó a ser de hasta 15 tantos en el segundo, antes que comenzasen a reaccionar con una racha de 10-4 en los últimos tres minutos del tercer periodo y lograr la ventaja parcial de 78-75 al llegar al cuarto. Los Lakers se mantuvieron arriba en el marcador antes que tomasen ya el control definitivo del partido con otra racha de 15-3, incluidos nueve tantos del escolta Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. El ala-pívot Kyle Kuzma surgió como el mejor jugador dentro de la pintura al conseguir un doble-doble de 15 puntos, 12 rebotes --todos defensivos-- y seis asistencias. Kuzma anotó 13 puntos en el tercer cuarto, su segunda mejor marca esta temporada en un periodo, después que en el segundo del partido que el pasado 22 de octubre los Lakers disputaron ante los Spurs de San Antonio aportó 14 tantos. Mientras que el veterano pívot Tyson Chandler, el último refuerzo que ha llegado a los Lakers, surgió como el factor sorpresa ganador y sexto jugador al conseguir otro doble-doble de 13 puntos y 12 rebotes. El base Lonzo Ball llegó a los 10 puntos con cuatro puntos y cinco recuperaciones de balón, el mejor del equipo en esa faceta del juego. Los Lakers siguieron sin tener mejor control del balón al perderlo 17 veces, incluidas 11 en la primera mitad, siendo la undécima vez que esta temporada lo han hecho en los primeros 24 minutos del partido. El alero Harrison Barnes, ante la poca inspiración del alero novato, el esloveno Luka Doncic, fue el máximo encestador del equipo al conseguir 29 puntos, cuatro rebotes, dos asistencias y dos recuperaciones de balón, que no impidieron la derrota de los Mavericks (10-10). Otro hombre alto, el ala-pívot reserva Dwight Powell consiguió 17 tantos y siete rebotes que lo dejaron como el sexto jugador de los Mavericks, que también tuvo el apoyo bajo los aros del pívot DeAndre Jordan al capturar 12 rebotes, que al final no pudieron ser factor ganador. El base Dennis Smith Jr. aportó 13 puntos y el escolta Wesley Matthews llegó a los 11 tantos, que tampoco evitaron la derrota de los Mavericks. El partido fue complicado para el equipo de Dallas con el trabajo que tuvieron los árbitros, quienes le señalaron cuatro faltas técnicas, incluidas tres en el cuarto periodo. El base puertorriqueño Juan José Barea fue expulsado a la mitad del cuarto periodo tras recibir la segunda falta técnica. Mientras que Doncic no tuvo su mejor partido ante James, su gran ídolo de infancia, después de acabarlo con apenas seis puntos en los 32 minutos que jugó. Doncic anotó apenas 2 de 13 tiros de campo, falló los cinco intentos de triple, y acertó 2 de 3 desde la línea de personal. Pero el exjugador del Real Madrid hizo mejor labor dentro de la pintura al capturar seis rebotes defensivos, dio cinco asistencias, recuperó tres balones, perdió otros tres, y puso dos tapones. Los Mavericks estuvieron arriba en el marcador con parcial de 30-45 con cuatro minutos del segundo cuarto disputados, cuando los Lakers consiguieron 10 tantos consecutivos, incluidos seis de James y comenzó la remontada, aunque el equipo de Dallas se fue al descanso con la ventaja de 53-58.

    In another attempt to solve the ongoing controversy at Dallas Love Field Airport, the city of Dallas crafted a resolution that, if enacted, would force Alaska Airlines to accommodate additional flights Delta wants to fly out of Love Field. Additionally, Southwest would have to continue to allow Delta to fly its five daily flights out of Gate 15. Both of the forced accommodations would occur for a minimum of three years, the city said in the court filing. This proposed resolution comes in the form of a supplement to the city's earlier motion for summary judgement.

              Alicia Koplowitz elegida académica de honor de Bellas Artes      Cache   Translate Page      
    Alicia Koplowitz responde al perfil de las personas a las que se destina la categoría de académico honorario, “de gran reputación artística, intelectual o en el campo del mecenazgo”, habiendo desarrollado una intensa y continuada acción filantrópica en los ámbitos social, médico y cultural. Con la creación de la Fundación que lleva su nombre en 1995, da cobertura a menores con necesidades de integración y, por otra parte, aboga por el estudio científico en los campos de la neurología y la psiquiatría infantil y adolescente.

    Su pasión por el arte le ha llevado a formar una colección privada de una calidad excepcional, la cual, a través de un amplio abanico artístico y temporal –desde el siglo XVI hasta el XXI-, muestra una línea estética personal que, de manera casi biográfica, refleja el gusto de Alicia Koplowitz por la belleza clásica. Esta colección ha sido mostrada al público en 2017 en dos importantes exposiciones monográficas –Museo Jacquemart-André de París y Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao, respectivamente-. Otras manifestaciones de su generosidad se han materializado en la donación de obras de arte a museos, como el magnífico Retrato de Josefa del Águila Ceballos de Federico de Madrazo, al Museo del Prado, o Triunfo del Amor sobre la Guerra de Luis Paret, al Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao.

    Alicia Klopowitz ha recibido múltiples y variados reconocimientos que respaldan su filantropía, generosidad e implicación social y en el mundo del arte, tales como la Gran Cruz de la Orden del Mérito Civil, la Gran Cruz de Alfonso X el Sabio, las Medallas de Oro de la Comunidad de Madrid, de la Cruz Roja y la Media Luna Roja. Su participación y presencia en diversos patronatos denotan la consideración y ejemplaridad de su opinión y actuaciones. Por citar algunos consejos de los que forma parte, es patrona de la Fundación Princesa de Asturias, vocal del Real Patronato del Museo Nacional del Prado, del Consejo Asesor de Cultura de la Fundación la Caixa, miembro del Consejo Internacional del Teatro Real y miembro de honor del Museo Guggenheim de Bilbao.

              Qué hacer si no te aparecen las medallas del Apple Watch que acabas de ganar       Cache   Translate Page      

    Qué hacer si no te aparecen las medallas del Apple Watch que acabas de ganar #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

    No es la primera vez que me pasa. Acabas de terminar un mes perfecto de actividad con tu Apple Watch y esperas a que te llegue el aviso. Una medalla, ¡enhorabuena! Lo has conseguido. Confeti y satisfacción personal. Pero no aparece por ningún sitio, te invade la decepción y las dudas. Pero no todo está perdido. Veamos qué puedes hacer si no te aparecen las medallas del Apple Watch, esas que aparecen en el "medallero" del iPhone.

    Motivación en forma de medallas virtuales

    nadar Apple Watch

    Lo reconozco, las medallas que obtienes al alcanzar determinados retos e hitos de actividad en el Apple Watch me encantan. Ver que vas alcanzando tus objetivos de actividad diarios y que esos esfuerzos se recompensan con una medalla te motiva un poco más a seguir adelante.

    medallas Apple Watch

    Estas insignias se guardan dentro de la app Actividad del iPhone. En ella nos encontramos con el historial de actividad desde que encendimos por primera vez nuestro Apple Watch. También veremos un repositorio con todo el histórico de entrenos y donde podremos filtrarlos para su consulta. En último lugar está el apartado de Compartir, donde veremos a las personas con las que compartimos actividad y competimos. Pero la sección de Premios es la que nos ocupa hoy.

    Aquí es donde se guardan todas esas medallas de las que hablábamos al principio. Cuando llevas un tiempo con el Apple Watch (en mi caso, desde abril de 2015) y a nada que hayas sido un poco activo, verás que este apartado está repleto de premios. Cada vez que obtengas uno, aparecerá en esta estantería virtual: en la "balda" de Recientes y también en la que le corresponda.

    El problema surge cuando has completado un hito u objetivo con tu Apple Watch y el logro no aparece. ¿Qué podemos hacer?

    Cómo hacer que aparezcan las medallas recién ganadas del Apple Watch

    Como Recuperar Medallas Desaparecidas Apple Watch

    Como veíamos al principio, no es la primera vez que ocurre que los logros del Apple Watch no aparecen como completados. En una ocasión, ni siquiera recibí notificación en el reloj. Por suerte, hay varias maneras de solucionar este error y forzar la actualización de los retos:

    • Primero de todo, asegúrate de tener tanto el Apple Watch como el iPhone en la última versión de sistema operativo.
    • Ve a la app Watch de tu iPhone, apartado de Salud. Cambia la opción de Silla de ruedas de Sin definir a Sí o No.
    • En tu iPhone, cierra las apps de Actividad y Salud.
    • Apaga tu iPhone y Apple Watch, tras unos segundos enciéndelos normalmente.

    Cuando vuelvas a abrir la app de Actividad en tu iPhone, tus nuevos logros deberían estar ahí esperándote. Si esto no lo ha solucionado, es posible que se resuelva por sí solo esperando hasta el día siguiente. ¿Has conseguido solucionar el problema?

              Höhenflug hält an - Doncic führt Mavs zum nächsten Sieg       Cache   Translate Page      

    Die Dallas Mavericks setzen ihren Siegeszug in der NBA weiter fort.

    Angeführt vom einmal mehr starken Rookie Luka Doncic feierten die Mavs beim 111:102 gegen die Portland Trail Blazers den neunten Sieg in den vergangenen elf Spielen. Der Slowene, der beim Sieg gegen die Clippers am Montag noch mit einer Hüftblessur hatte passen müssen, war mit 21 Punkten (neun Rebounds, drei Assists) bester Werfer seiner Mannschaft.

    Dallas erwischte vor heimischem Publikum im American Airlines Center den besseren Start und konnte sich nach rund fünf Minuten erstmals spürbar absetzen. Insbesondere von der Dreierlinie zeigten sich die Hausherren im ersten Viertel stark. So fanden fünf der ersten neun Versuche von "Downtown" den Weg in den Ring.

    Lillard hält Trail Blazers im Spiel

    Mit einem 17:3-Lauf zum Ende des ersten Durchgangs konnten sich die Mavericks dann endgültig von den Gästen absetzen. Zu Beginn des zweiten Viertels führte ein neuerlicher 6:0-Run zu einem zwischenzeitlichen 17-Punkte-Vorsprung. Dabei sorgte Maximilian Kleber mit einem Jump-Hook für ein Ausrufezeichen. Der Deutsche kam am Ende auf acht Punkte, fünf Rebounds und zwei Assists in gut 16 Minuten auf dem Parkett.

    Mit einer 60:45-Führung aus Sicht der Mavericks ging es schließlich in die Halbzeit. Allerdings verpasste es Dallas nach der Pause immer wieder, sich vorzeitig entscheidend abzusetzen. Vor allem Damian Lillard stemmte sich auf Seiten der Trail Blazers vehement gegen die Niederlage und sorgte mit einigen einfachen Korberfolgen dafür, dass sein Team weiter im Geschäft blieb. 

    Dem Point Guard, der am Ende mit 33 Punkten zum besten Werfer des Spiels avancierte, gelangen alleine in dieser Phase 15 Zähler. So konnte Portland den Rückstand zwischenzeitlich sogar wieder bis auf acht Punkte verkürzen.

    Portland meldet sich in Schlussphase zurück

    Dallas-Coach Rick Carlisle reagierte und brachte neuen Schwung von der Bank. Zwei Dreier von Dwight Powell und Kleber mit einem Putback-Dunk sorgten mit Ende des dritten Viertels wieder für klare Verhältnisse.

    Zu Beginn des Schlussabschnitts konnten die Mavs die Führung zunächst weiter ausbauen. Als dann allerdings die Starter aufs Feld zurückkehrten, wurde es noch einmal spannend. Erneut war es Lillard, der seine Mannschaft mit starken Aktionen anführte und somit zurück ins Spiel brachte.

    Doncic sorgt für die Entscheidung

    Rund eineinhalb Minuten vor dem Ende konnten die Trail Blazers den Rückstand dann auf gerade einmal sechs Zähler verkürzen. Doch Luka Doncic mit einem verwandelten Step-Back-Dreier und einem Assist für Dennis Smith Jr. entschied die Partie letztendlich zu Gunsten der Texaner.

    Mit nun zwölf Siegen aus 22 Partien rangieren die Dallas Mavericks auf Platz sieben in der Western Conference und stehen damit einen Platz vor Portland. Für die Trail Blazers war es dagegen die sechste Niederlage in den vergangenen sieben Spielen. (Tabelle der NBA)

              Pentatonix!      Cache   Translate Page      
    The Methodist church in the St. Joseph's convent premises, Whitefield, Bangalore sang 'The first Noel' as the opening hymn on 2nd Dec. I love the cover on the hymn by Pentatonix. Their vocal range is a work of angels!



    I also love the fact that two of the band members are openly gay. They threw caution to the winds and are living their truth. Not easy while working on Christian songs. They have my respect and admiration. Hope they inspire more people who are saddled by the expectations of their faith and are resigned to living double lives. It's amusing to see how fundamentalist Christians believe that God who is not limited by flesh worries about who someone has sex with. Perhaps, they would rather follow Paul and Peter than Jesus, who wouldn't refuse a party invitation from them ;)

    Here's a quick snapshot:-

              Mavericks wygrywają u siebie ósmy raz z rzędu. Najlepszy wynik od 2011 roku      Cache   Translate Page      

    Kolejne zwycięstwo Dallas Mavericks u siebie. Tym razem drużyna z Teksasu pokonała Portland Trail Blazers 111:102. To już ósma z rzędu domowa wygrana Dallas. Tak dobry wynik osiągnęli ostatnio w swoim mistrzowskim sezonie w 2011 roku.

    21 punktów zdobył Luka Doncić. 17 dołożył Wesley Matthews. Dla Mavs jest to dziewiąta wygrana w ostatnich 11 meczach.

    - Być taką drużyną, jaką chcemy być, musimy wygrywać mecze u siebie. Nasza uważna gra w obronie to jest to, co naprawdę nam pomaga - powiedział Matthews.

    Faktycznie defensywa Dallas sprawiła sporo problemów liderom Blazers. Damian Lillard zdobył 33 punkty, ale trafi 10 z 22 rzutów z gry i 2 z 8 za trzy punkty. Trafił natomiast 11 na 12 rzutów wolnych. Natomiast C.J. McCollum dołożył 18 "oczek", trafiając zaledwie 7 z 19 rzutów.

    - Nasi zawodnicy wykonali świetną pracę realizując założenia gry w defensywie. Plan na te spotkanie nie był łatwy, ponieważ muliliśmy biegać za zawodnikami, którzy znajdują się daleko od kosza - podkreślił Rick Carlisle, trener Mavs. Jego podopieczni zajmują siódme miejsce w Konferencji Zachodniej z bilansem 12-10. W następnym spotkaniu zmierzą się na wyjeździe z New Orleans Pelicans.

    - Ten mecz był bardzo podobny do dwóch naszych poprzednich. Mieliśmy słaby początek, byliśmy trochę przybici w przerwie, wróciliśmy do gry w drugiej połowie i ostatecznie przegraliśmy. Już chyba wszyscy jesteśmy tym zmęczeni - przyznał Terry Stotts, szkoleniowiec Blazers. Zespół z Oregonu plasuje się na ósmej pozycji z 13 zwycięstwami i 11 porażkami. Jego kolejnym przeciwnikiem będzie z Phoenix Suns.

              V/A - DJ Haus Enters The Unknown Vol. 2      Cache   Translate Page      
    'Enters The Unknown Vol. 2'
    A label-centric compilation stacked with adventurous new music...

    DJ Haus’ latest label showcase, 'Enters The Unknown Vol. 2', boasts a downright ridiculous roster. Spanning sleepy house, Detroit influenced techno and ethereal electro, the forty four track concept has a blend of profound moments and forgetfulness.

    The first real highlight comes in the form of Mall Grab’s ‘Catching Feelings’. The producer, now that he has been catapulted to the forefront of dance music stardom, can be found headlining a plethora of big room shows. Clash was always of the opinion that Mall Grab’s aesthetic was better suited to the intimate energy of a smaller room. ‘Catching Feelings’ is a dreamily constructed electronic lullaby that provokes memories of those one hundred person capacity evenings.

    Jerson Interceptor’s ‘Hyrdro System’ introduces the first taste of electro on the compilation; it’s out- of-this-word synths, twinkling malfunctions and burnt out electronic components concocting the touch of both soft and harsh to stimulating effect.

    In truth, there isn’t a bad track on the compilation; there are just tracks that are so good that they make others seem a bit half-arsed. Jerson Interceptor’s electro inauguration incites a flurry of electro productions from Contactless, DJ Normal 4 and DJ Stingray, all of which, to no real surprise, are pretty bloody great.

    Man of the moment Textasy drops the ghetto influence in favour of easygoing approach on the aptly titled ‘Chilling on the Beach’. Those expecting the Dallas producer’s high energy, propulsive firepower may be left disappointed, but if anything the track is a shining example of how multi-dimensional he is as an artist.

    Enter the B-side (all the cool kids love a B-side, right?), enter the sleepy grooves. There is enough energy here to keep those ‘play tougher’ bro’s happy, but it’s the dreamers that come out on top. DJ Steaw’s chirping birds and ‘floating over the clouds’ like synths provide the first real high point of the B-side, closely followed by two emotionally engrossing productions from Legowelt and DJ Seinfeld.

    Neil Landstrumm creates a chaotic, straight jacket inspired techno production that makes you want to put your fist through a wall, before Fantastic Man brings the compilation to a halt on a remix collaboration with DJ Shark. It’s arg
