          America’s Leading Reform-Minded District Attorney Has Taken His Most Radical Step Yet      Cache   Translate Page      

Larry Krasner continues to build a reputation as the prosecutor who wants to keep people out of prison. Among other head-turning changes, Philadelphia’s district attorney has stopped prosecuting marijuana possession, instructed his 300 assistant district attorneys to stop seeking bail on low-level charges, and had his office begin plea negotiations below the low end of the state’s sentencing guidelines.

Krasner has unwaveringly pushed further left than his “reform-minded prosecutor” peers, a class that now encompasses state and county law enforcement officials in jurisdictions from Houston, to Chicago, to San Francisco. Recently he further broke into new territory by speaking out about the elephant in the room: violent crime, a classification that most state inmates are in for.

Krasner has challenged the idea that every person convicted of killing should be sent away for the rest of their lives, which is the mandatory minimum sentence for first- or second- degree murder in Pennsylvania. He has mandated that he personally sign off on any deal offered that exceeds 15 to 30 years in prison. According to a recent Philadelphia Inquirer analysis, in six cases that were initially filed as “murder generally” Krasner sought third-degree or involuntary manslaughter charges rather than the first- or second-degree murder charges that would have been the norm under his predecessors. While comprehensive national comparisons are hard to come by, criminal justice experts view this willingness to lower murder charges as a first of its kind effort among prosecutors in major municipalities.

“We are not going to overcharge,” Krasner told Slate of the new practice. “We are not going to try to coerce defendants. We are going to proceed on charges that are supported by the facts in the case, period. The era of trying to get away with the highest charge regardless of the facts is over.”

This promise represents a 180-degree turn from traditional prosecutorial practice, which is to charge as high as possible no matter the facts in the hopes of negotiating a lower plea deal. This is finally starting to change, and Krasner is leading the way. Inspired by works such as Michelle Alexander’s seminal The New Jim Crow, those who have been in a position to institute some version of criminal justice reform have so far focused on the most sympathetic offenders: those who have committed nonviolent drug crimes. This, though, represents the tip of the iceberg. Even if the country released every single inmate convicted of possession or trafficking, it would only take a relatively small bite out of mass incarceration. Of the 1.3 million inmates held in state prisons in 2016, only about 15 percent were convicted of drug crimes, whereas more than half, 55 percent, were in for violent crimes, according to a Prison Policy Initiative report.

“Violent crime has seemed a third rail in criminal justice reform discussions,” said David Alan Sklansky, a Stanford Law School professor and former federal prosecutor. But “it’s always a mistake to think that you can divide crime into two clean distinct categories: the criminals that deserve understanding and the criminals that are beyond redemption.”

Because prosecutors are generally elected officials, they have been reluctant to risk votes by seeking a reform approach to violent crime. “I think responsible prosecutors try to do the right thing even if they think there will be political costs, but they also try to be sensitive to the needs and concerns of their communities,” Sklansky said.

Which is just to say: By speaking publicly about not seeking the highest penalty for a killing, Krasner is going out on a political ledge. Though their position is to represent the state, prosecutors are also understood to be advocates for crime victims. And indeed, Krasner has gotten pushback from some victims’ families. He has seemed to be steadfast, though, in his position against overcharging.

“Part of the motivation for always charging the highest charge was the political management of victims. It became very easy to always say what aggrieved, traumatized victims want to hear,” Krasner told the Inquirer. “Then, when a jury or judge a year or two later has to straighten that out and knock it down to size, you just raise your fist and shake it at the judge or jury.” Krasner’s approach, though, is to prosecute what can be proven by the facts.

In Pennsylvania, the difference between first- and third-degree murder is intent. (Second-degree is felony murder, whereby if anyone dies during the course of a felony, say, a burglary, everyone involved is charged for the killing.) Again, Krasner’s approach has not been without controversy. Former Pennsylvania Gov. and Philadelphia District Attorney Ed Rendell argued that juries and judges were best situated to determine the facts of a case that might lead to a heightened sentence. “The downside is that someone escapes the appropriate punishment,” Rendell told the Inquirer. “You’ve taken the charge off the table, so neither the jury nor the judge has the right to impose it.”

While this way has been standard practice around the country, reformers have argued it should be considered antithetical to the role of a prosecutor. “The prosecutor should only file charges he believes he can prove beyond a reasonable doubt,” former federal prosecutor Chiraag Bains said. “Just because you’ve got a big hammer in your toolbox, doesn’t mean you should threaten to use it.”

Though Krasner has been the first to speak out about excessive murder charges, his colleagues in New York have also dipped their toes into changing punishments for violent crimes. Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez and Bronx DA Darcel Clark have allowed some violent felony cases to be diverted outside of the standard carceral state apparatus. The program, Common Justice, is the first restorative justice program in the nation to handle violent crimes in the adult courts. In certain cases, the perpetrator goes through an intensive violence intervention program, in lieu of incarceration, that includes at its center a dialogue process with the victim.

“Almost everyone comes back from prison, and they don’t come back better for it,” said Danielle Sered, executive director of Common Justice. Prosecutors have long cited justice for victims as the reason for seeking max penalties during campaigns and in the media. However, the only national poll of crime victims found that a strong majority would rather perpetrators receive rehabilitation than severe punishment. The Alliance for Safety and Justice surveyed more than 800 crime victims in 2016, including victims of violent crime such as rape or the murder of a family member: About 70 percent wanted more neighborhood-based rehabilitation and less prison. More than half thought prison made a person more likely to reoffend.

Sered believes that key to the election of reform-minded prosecutors has been that those candidates and the outside organizations mobilizing voters are in neighborhoods most affected by crime. “People who live in neighborhoods where violence is are voting for change,” she said. “It’s about being pragmatic.”

The Common Justice program is groundbreaking, but Krasner’s approach—if it continues and spreads—is potentially monumental.

“Violent crime can have a devastating impact on communities and of course individuals,” said Bains. “But so can oversentencing for those crimes.”


          Trump Is Even Worse at Enforcing White-Collar Crimes Than George W. Bush Was      Cache   Translate Page      

Last month, when our government blasted tear gas at women and children seeking refuge at our Southern border, ostensibly in service of law and order, a very different picture emerged of other parts of the Trump administration. Even leaving aside the regular revelations about criminal activity by top Trump associates, the administration itself has shown its law and order mantra to be completely hollow in another crucial area: enforcement of white-collar laws.

Last week, the Financial Times reported that antitrust enforcement dropped to its lowest rate since Nixon’s presidency. At the same time, Senate Democrats put out a report on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s implosion, and a blog post from a Beltway employment law firm surfaced: “Trump [Department of Labor] Focusing More on Employer Compliance Than Crackdowns.” This was all in one day. Just a month earlier, the New York Times had reported on the steep decline in corporate prosecutions and penalties by the Trump Justice Department and Securities and Exchange Commission.

Together, these reports of feeble enforcement against corporations belie the oft-repeated myth that the Trump administration and his Republican enablers have a commitment to law and order. Even on those terms, he’s a complete fraud. It’s worth considering the Trump administration’s refusal to enforce corporate law in the context of its brutal immigration and criminal justice policies.

Firstly, the notion that migrants who have been so vilified by Trump are doing something illegal is wrong as a matter of law. Trump has made a series of end-runs around asylum protections, at one point attempting to unilaterally declare that migrants could not claim asylum outside of a port of entry. There is an entire section of our immigration law called “Asylum”; it starts like this: “Any alien … who arrives in the United States (whether or not at a designated port of arrival …), irrespective of such alien’s status, may apply for asylum in accordance with this section.” That’s pretty clear! (A judge has temporarily halted Trump’s executive action on ports of entry asylum, but it remains to be litigated by the courts.)

The Trump administration is also terrifying immigrant communities through its no-holds-barred approach to enforcement, with arrests at courthouses, school drop-offs, and routine check-ins at immigration offices. Of course, frightening people doesn’t ultimately lead to more law and order. It actually leads to greater lawlessness, as immigrant communities, afraid to seek help, hesitate to report domestic violence, sexual assault, workplace abuses, and other attacks.  

The Trump administration also uses its “tough on crime” pose as a justification for various criminal justice policy changes to make the system harsher for some. For example, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded an Obama-era sentencing memorandum instructing prosecutors to focus on serious, high-level, or violent drug traffickers. Instead Sessions directed these prosecutors to charge the most serious offense and seek the highest possible sentence in all of these types of cases—regardless of mitigating circumstances like a lack of prior record or a nonviolent crime. This change was instituted despite sentencing guidelines that are widely viewed, even by some federal judges, as draconian and often unjust.

Meanwhile, we see a different story in relation to a different set of players. No highest possible sentence. No charging the most serious offense. No tear gas. Instead, a white glove. A gentle touch, if any. Often, not even a slap on the wrist.

According to the Financial Times, the Department of Justice filed fewer than 20 criminal antitrust cases in the most recent fiscal year, the lowest level since 1972, and less than half the cases filed during President George W. Bush’s first year. Penalties and fines have also plummeted.

The Senate minority’s report on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau describes colossal backpedaling in the past two years. This has included the dissolution of the office that oversaw the student loan market, a decision to stop proactively reviewing potential violations of the law protecting members of the military service from financial fraud and predatory loans, and the stripping of powers from the office responsible for enforcing fair lending laws.

As for the Securities and Exchange Commission, the New York Times compared the first 20 months of the Obama and Trump administrations, and found a more than 60 percent drop in penalties imposed and illicit profits ordered returned by the SEC. Also, during this period, the Justice Department brought only 17 cases against banks under Trump, compared with 71 under Obama. Even George W. Bush SEC Chairman Harvey Pitt, not famed for harsh penalties against corporate violators, noted that the Trump administration’s current posture “could embolden some to keep breaking the law.”

The Department of Labor, meanwhile, implemented a new program that offers amnesty for wage law violators who self-report. And the Trump administration rescinded an Obama-era executive order that required large companies to disclose labor violations when applying for federal contracts.

Trump and his team strike military postures when dealing with immigrants, the poor, or people of color. They’re pliant as a pussycat, though, when dealing with businesses that swindle consumers, defraud veterans, exploit workers, or cheat investors.

This administration, indeed, demonstrates the classic pose of a bully: beat up on those who don’t have power, accommodate those who do.

Believing in law and order means that the crimes of large companies and their owners are treated with at least the same seriousness as the wrongdoings of everyone else. It means creating a culture of compliance. It also means taking steps that actually lead to more law-abiding and safe communities for everyone, not play-acting like a sheriff who’s just entered the O.K. Corral. A true commitment to law and order means that everyone is subject to the law—the powerful and the powerless alike.


          Bush to Lie in State at U.S. Capitol for Two Days Before Funeral at National Cathedral      Cache   Translate Page      

A detailed schedule of the funeral and memorial services for former President George H.W. Bush has been released and detailed how much of next week will be dedicated to the former commander in chief who died late Friday night aged 94.

President Donald Trump and his wife Melania will attend the funeral that will take place at the Washington National Cathedral on Wednesday. First though, Trump announced he will be sending one of the Boeing 747s that serves as Air Force One to Houston to transport Bush’s remains to D.C. Lawmakers from both the House and Senate will attend an arrival ceremony that will be held at the U.S. Capitol Monday afternoon. Bush’s remains will then lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda and the public will be able to pay its respects from 7:30 p.m. Monday until 7 a.m. Wednesday.

Following the funeral at the National Cathedral, which is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. Wednesday, the 41st president’s remains will travel back from Joint Base Andrews military facility in Maryland to Houston, where the former president will lie in repose at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church. A Second service will take place there on Thursday before Bush’s casket will be taken by train to College Station, Texas, where the former president will be interred at the George Bush Presidential Library & Museum on the grounds of Texas A&M University. The former president will be buried alongside his wife Barbara and daughter Robin. Barbara Bush died in April, whereas Robin died in 1953 when she was three.

Trump declared that Wednesday will be a national day of mourning and he signed an executive order directing federal offices to close on that day “as a mark of respect” for the former president. Tradition dictates that financial markets also close on national days of mourning. The funeral had already been carefully planned in advanced well before Bush’s death. “This state funeral is a culmination of years of planning and rehearsal to ensure the support the military renders President Bush is nothing less than a first-class tribute,” said Major General Michael L. Howard, Joint Force Headquarters-National Capital Region commanding general.


          Report: Teams expect Trevor Ariza to be top player available for trade      Cache   Translate Page      
The Phoenix Suns have been one of the worst teams in the NBA for several years and are headed in that direction again this season, and that likely means Trevor Ariza will be wearing a new uniform at some point in the near future. Marc Stein of the New York Times reports that rival teams expect Ariza to be the top player available when players who signed free agent contracts are eligible to be traded on Dec. 15. Many executives have hoped the Suns would buy out Ariza like they did with Tyson Chandler, but they appear to be committed to finding a trade partner. Ariza, 33, is averaging 9.9 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game this season. He’s still an effective and experienced role player who was a key contributor for some good Houston Rockets teams before he signed with Phoenix, so you can understand why contending teams would want to add him. There was some talk that one of LeBron James’ ex-teammates did him a favor by waiving Chandler, but teams are going to have to be patient with Ariza.
          Dodgers acuerda con Dave Roberts      Cache   Translate Page      

Los Dodgers de Los Ángeles acordaron ayer un contrato por cuatro años con el mánager Dave Roberts, lo que lo mantendrá al frente del equipo hasta 2022.

Roberts recién cumplió su tercera temporada dirigiendo a los Dodgers, guiando a Los Ángeles a su segunda Serie Mundial consecutiva. El equipo perdió en cinco juegos frente a los Medias Rojas de Boston en octubre pasado, y en la Serie Mundial de 2017 cayó en siete partidos ante los Astros de Houston.

Ha dirigido a los Dodgers en campañas de 91, 104 y 92 victorias, y tiene récord de 287-200 en total.

"Retener a Doc como nuestro líder en el campo era nuestra máxima prioridad en este periodo entre temporadas y ahora que lo hemos logrado nos emociona centrar colectivamente toda nuestra atención en hacer lo más que podamos por darles un campeonato a nuestros apasionados aficionados", declaró Andrew Friedman, el presidente de operaciones deportivas de los Dodgers, el lunes en un comunicado.

El equipo había ejercido previamente la opción de Roberts para 2019. El acuerdo anunciado ayer le da tres años adicionales garantizados.

Roberts es el primer mánager de Los Ángeles que lleva al club a la postemporada en cada uno de sus primeros tres años.

Su comportamiento discreto ha jugado bien en un clubhouse donde algunos jugadores de alto perfil han tenido que asumir roles menores debido a la abundancia de talento en el róster. Roberts ha logrado que se comprometan con el objetivo general de ganar una Serie Mundial, algo que el equipo no ha hecho desde 1988.

Roberts provocó la ira de los fanáticos de los Dodgers con algunas de sus decisiones de postemporada, especialmente en la Serie Mundial, pero claramente los dueños y la oficina principal creen que él es la persona que dirige la franquicia.

"Cuando me contrataron para liderar este equipo hace tres años, dije en ese momento que entrenar a los Dodgers es realmente la oportunidad de toda una vida y me siento exactamente igual hoy", dijo en un comunicado. "Hemos trabajado arduamente para desarrollar un equipo y una cultura que nos permita ganar la Serie Mundial en cada temporada, pero aún tenemos que alcanzar nuestro objetivo final y eso es lo que me impulsa cada día".

La extensión le da a los Dodgers una continuidad que no han tenido desde que el miembro del Salón de la Fama Tom Lasorda dirigió el equipo de 1976 a 1996.

The view south from Park Avenue and 94th Street around 1882.

Manhattan Street Grid at Museum of City of New York (NYTimes.com)

Simeon De Witt, Gouverneur Morris and John Rutherfurd were entrusted with planning the city back in 1811. New York huddled mostly south of Canal Street, but it was booming, its population having tripled to 96,373 since 1790 thanks to the growing port.

The planners proposed a grid for this future city stretching northward from roughly Houston Street to 155th Street in the faraway heights of Harlem. It was in many respects a heartless plan. There were virtually no parks or plazas. The presumption was that people would gravitate east and west along the numbered streets to the rivers when they wanted open space and fresh air, and not spend lots of time moving north or south. That partly explains why there were only a dozen avenues.

In the abstract, the idea was really nothing revolutionary; grid plans went back to ancient Greece and Rome. But installing one in Manhattan was deeply subversive because, while still undeveloped, the island was already parceled into irregularly shaped, privately owned properties.

This meant the appropriation of land and reconstruction. First, Manhattan had to be surveyed, a task that took years. Property lines had to be redrawn, government mobilized for decades on end to enforce, open, grade and pave streets. Some 60 years passed before the grid arrived at 155th Street. Streets were still “rough and ragged” tracks for a long while, as one diarist observed in 1867, describing a recently opened stretch around 40th Street and Madison Avenue as a mess of “mud holes, goats, pigs and geese.”


          How to Avoid Constant Screen Time on Summer Vacation      Cache   Translate Page      

Mom and Dad are taking a break, too.

Mom and Dad are taking a break, too.

Summer vacation is just around the corner. For children it typically means freedom from the day-to-day routine of school. However, for parents the words "summer vacation" tend to conjure up a dilemma: how to make sure devices and screens don't fill every waking minute of every day for two months.

Too much screen time has indeed been linked to sensory overload, lack of sleep, diminished ability to recognize emotions and even genuine addiction. On top of that, by keeping themselves glued to their screens, your kids may be missing out on many of the summer pastimes that have marked childhood since time began, from going to the beach, exploring the neighborhood with their friends to simply dealing with being bored.

In limiting screen time for kids, you are working to create a healthy “play diet” that balances many types of play. You can keep screen time as part of this play diet, while also ensuring your kids get in some social, physical, unstructured, and creative play.

But how to achieve this balance?

Here are some tips for limiting screen time while helping your kids enjoy a fun and memorable summer. And remember: success comes when parents enforce the family rules while demonstrating by by example.

Tips for Limiting Screen Time in Summer

Kids these days use their devices for everything: research for school projects, texting with friends, letting us know they’re safe when they’re out, as well as for gaming and consuming media. Yet kids need to spend time outdoors or reading books, or simply just thinking.

However, it can be difficult to set and then reliably and consistently enforcing rules. As with most everything else in life, developing a game plan can help pave the way for success.

summer screen time with kids

Tip 1: Be Realistic

“Forbidden fruit is the tastiest,” says Lucy Jo Palladino, a clinical psychologist and author of Parenting in the Age of Attention Snatchers. Completely banning screen time may simply double the desire of your kids to get online.

Instead, be realistic: devices are a part of everyday life for kids. Accept that fact, and create a flexible plan that manages screen time.

Tip 2: Start With an Endpoint

Negotiate the length and amount of screentime with your kids ahead of time. Either set firm time limits, or limit screentime to the duration of a specific program. That way, one show won’t flow into the other, and you can avoid commercials.

Because most games don’t have built-in endings (and are, in fact, designed to make kids play as long as possible), set a timer or some other cue that says “time to stop.”

Tip 3: Help Kids Balance Their Day

Kids need guidance from you on a daily plan that includes a little bit of time for everything. Kids whose parents make an effort to limit media use spend less time with media than their peers do, according to a study. As parents, it can be easy to nag kids to try to get them to do things, but this will not necessarily work with limiting screen time.

Instead, it's best to work on a concrete plan that structures activities throughout the day. This gives kids a sense of predictability, and also lets them know what your expectations are. They can also more easily refrain from turning to devices when bored by focusing on some other activity.

The American Academy of Pediatrics’ worksheets to create a family media plan that can help you and your kids balance their day.

Tip 4: Walk the Talk 

If you want to make sure your kids reduce screen time this summer, it's important to model behavior. It’s tempting for adults to keep reaching for your phone to check email, texts, Facebook, or the news. But your kids will be the first to call you out for not “walking the talk.” Plus, they’ll pick up habits from you.

Model the media behavior, and enjoy your summer, too!

          Sully, George H.W. Bush's service dog, has new mission to serve wounded troops      Cache   Translate Page      

SMITHTOWN, N.Y. — A special member of the Bush family stole the show during the ceremonies honoring President George H.W. Bush on Monday. The president's beloved service dog, Sully, faithfully joined his companion on his final journey.

CBS New York reports Sully was named after the pilot who successfully landed the plane in the Hudson River back in 2009. The yellow lab has performed some miracles of his own, and he began his life on Long Island.

The dog's full name is Sully H.W. Bush. He was photographed recently sitting faithfully by the casket of President Bush. The caption reads: Mission complete.

Another photo shared Monday showed Sully with Bush family members before the president's casket was taken to Ellington Air Force Base.

"You saw the picture that the president's team posted and you just got chills," said John Miller of America's VetDogs.

There were chills for sure in Smithtown, where Sully was trained by America's VetDogs. He was then presented to the 41st president shortly after the death of his wife, Barbara.

President Bush tweeted then that it was, "A great joy to welcome home the newest member of our family, 'Sully,' a beautiful — and beautifully trained — lab from @AmericasVetDogs. Could not be more grateful, especially for their commitment to our veterans."

Training service dogs like Sully requires multiple months of classes spread over 10 acres in Smithtown. Many of the dogs CBS New York saw on Monday grew up with Sully. Brad Hibbard was among those who brought Sully to the Bush's summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine, last June, offering the president companionship and support during his time of grief.

"We introduced Sully to all the different pet dogs there on the compound, and all the family met the dog. We spent a week there working with President Bush's team," Hibbard said.

Sully will return to Long Island at the end of the week and reside here until after the holidays. He will then join Walter Reed Military Medical Center working with wounded U.S. military veterans.

"And as you look at the service that Sully provided to the president, we have great pride, but we are very sad as well," Miller said.

Those close to the service dog say for now Sully appears lonely, loyal to the U.S. leader for whom he had unwavering allegiance.

America's VetDogs says Sully is getting his spirit back and will share his love for life with wounded vets, beginning next month.

          The Trevor Project Raises $1.5 Million To Help LGBTQ Youth      Cache   Translate Page      

The Trevor Project celebrated its 2018 TrevorLIVE gala Sunday night at the Los Angeles Beverly Hilton Hotel raising over $1.5 million to help at risk LGBTQ teens.

The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25.

In addition to honoring producer/director Ryan Murphy (Pose, American Horror Story), the evening included performances by Lauren JaureguiDeborah Cox, and a surprise duet by POSE cast members Billy Porter and Mj Rodriguez.

Lauren Jauregui kicked off the show with a stripped-down performance of her debut single, “Expectations.”

 

 

Trans activist/author Janet Mock presented the Hero Award to Ryan Murphy and the cast of POSE.

In accepting the award Murphy shared: 

“When I was 19, in Indiana, I myself called a suicide hotline. Overwhelmed by the AIDS crisis, by the fact that I was the only ‘out’ person in my friend group, the only ‘out’ person I knew at the time, and alienated from my family, I felt profound despair.

          Two bye weeks, six road games on the docket for Washington State football in 2019      Cache   Translate Page      

PULLMAN – The college football season will span across 14 weeks next year, meaning Washington State and each of its 11 Pac-12 Conference peers will have two bye weeks rather than one in 2019.

The Cougars are preparing for their fourth consecutive bowl game under Mike Leach – the Dec. 28 Alamo Bowl against Iowa State – but they got a glimpse of next season when the Pac-12 announced its full 2019 schedule Tuesday morning.

The WSU slate is highlighted by the two bye weeks, which fall on Oct. 5 and Nov. 2, a pair of Friday games and six road games for the first time since 2015.

The Cougars will travel to Houston’s NRG Stadium to play the University of Houston in an intriguing nonconference matchup on Friday, Sept. 13, as part of the AdvoCare Texas Kickoff. They’ll also play a traditional Apple Cup date, on Black Friday (Nov. 29 in Seattle), as they try to snap a six-game losing skid against the University of Washington.

WSU, which had won 13 straight home games at Martin Stadium before the 2018 finale versus the Huskies, will open 2019 on the Palouse against New Mexico State on Aug. 31. The Cougars will then welcome in a Big Sky team to Martin Stadium for the 10th consecutive season when they host Northern Colorado on Sept. 7.

After missing out on a chance to play UCLA in Chip Kelly’s first year, the former Oregon coach will take the Bruins to Pullman on Sept. 21.

The Cougars will go nearly a month before playing another game at Martin Stadium. They travel to Salt Lake City to play reigning Pac-12 South champion Utah on Sept. 28 before the Oct. 5 bye. WSU follows with a trip to Tempe to face Arizona State and first-year coach Herm Edwards on Oct. 12, before returning home to play Colorado on Oct. 19.

After that, it’ll be another long stretch without football at Martin Stadium for WSU fans. The Cougars will gun for their fifth straight win over Pac-12 North rival Oregon on Oct. 26 in Eugene before taking their second bye week on Nov. 2. Out of the bye week, they’ll visit Cal on Nov. 9 and attempt to break a two-game losing streak in Berkeley.

A two-week home stretch against the Pac-12 North begins with a Nov. 16 matchup with Stanford and continues with a Nov. 23 clash against Oregon State. The Cardinal haven’t defeated the Cougars in their last three tries and the Beavers haven’t in their last five.

The regular season closes, as always, with the annual rivalry game against the Huskies. The 112th Apple Cup will be played at Husky Stadium. If it’s any consolation for WSU, for the first time in five years, the Cougars won’t have to deal with the headache of containing running back Myles Gaskin and quarterback Jake Browning, who formed the most productive backfield in UW history.

The Cougars had opportunities to play for the Pac-12 title the last three years, but if they can get over the hump in 2019, the conference championship game will be held on Dec. 6 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.


          In Bush coverage, the media finds another foil for Trump      Cache   Translate Page      

Shortly before midnight on Friday, George H.W. Bush died at home in Houston. He was 94. Bush’s death set the stage for a weekend of tribute. Although some media coverage of America’s 41st president (mostly in left-leaning outlets) was harshly critical, the majority was glowing and nostalgic. In between, nuanced depictions of a complicated life got crowded out. The tenor of the news cycle felt much as it did in August following the death of John McCain.

As the news filtered through, many outlets published their obituaries of Bush. Obituaries are a strange art—most big news organizations write them in advance then keep them in cold storage, particularly when subjects are advanced in years and/or have a serious medical condition (Bush announced, in 2012, that he was living with vascular parkinsonism, a mobility-limiting disease). Political obituaries, in particular, can thus feel suspended in time—infusing the historical period they cover with the assumptions and values of when they were written. When finally published, obituaries are updated to mirror the mood of the day—setting a narrative around a dead public figure that subsequent coverage tends to reinforce.

ICYMI: Headlines editors probably wish they could take back

In Bush’s case, that coverage has been dominated by favorable comparisons to President Trump. Bush’s death, much like McCain’s before him, became a metaphor for the death of civility in politics. A warm letter Bush wrote his successor, Bill Clinton, was held up as an artifact of bipartisan comity, as BuzzFeed’s Anne Helen Petersen noted in an insightful post. Many outlets highlighted Bush’s broad public popularity—both during his presidency and now—as an example of rare national consensus. And on cable news, in particular, commentators portrayed Bush as an honorable man who did politics the nice way. On CNN, Colin Powell, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff under Bush, summed up much coverage when he said, “Politics need not be mean and nasty, and he lived by that.”

Obituaries and the coverage leading off of them are news stories, not historical scholarship, so it’s understandable that they plug into current events. It is ironic, then, that the press glossed over Bush’s failures and flaws when so many of them track closely with recent developments in our politics. Just last month, Bush’s racist 1988 Willie Horton spot—the low point of two highly divisive presidential runs—was explicitly compared to a Trump campaign ad painting migrants as bloodthirsty criminals. Likewise, the Brett Kavanaugh saga re-upped Bush’s appointment of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court—Bush stuck with Thomas, as Trump stuck with Kavanaugh, despite credible allegations of sexual misconduct against his nominee. And Bush’s decision, as he prepared to leave office, to pardon defendants in the Iran–Contra scandal to shield himself from further investigation chimes, at least in some small way, with Trump’s reaction to the Mueller probe: just last week, Trump refused to rule out a pardon for Paul Manafort.

None of this is to diminish Bush’s many achievements, nor is it to say he was similar to Trump: he was not. But the focus on Bush’s comparatively civil style—to the exclusion of almost everything else—made much coverage of his death feel hagiographic. Even mild negativity was given a wide berth. Bizarrely, the AP said yesterday that it deleted a tweet and revised a story on Bush’s death “because the tweet and the opening of the story referenced his 1992 electoral defeat and omitted his WWII service.” (Its initial tweet had attracted right-wing ire online.)

As the cliche goes, journalism is the first rough draft of history. In a clear-eyed assessment for Politico on Saturday, historian David Greenberg wrote that in media coverage, “respect for the dead must coexist with respect for the historical record.” Over the weekend, many obituaries and follow-up stories missed the opportunity to judge Bush’s presidency by those standards, rather than the diminished stature of the White House’s current occupant.

Below, more on the life and death of George H.W. Bush:

  • Available, accessible, and informed: On CNN’s Reliable Sources, Brian Stelter and guests discussed what it was like to cover the first Bush White House. “Bush was available, he was accessible, he was informed and gosh, that’s what journalists like,” remembered Charles Bierbauer, who covered his administration for CNN. “Access is the most important thing.”
  • More remembrances: The New York Times’s Peter Baker reconstructs Bush’s final moments. Also in the Times, Maureen Dowd reflects on her mutually respectful relationship with the president she covered, despite their very different backgrounds, while in The Washington Post, Thomas Boswell remembers how Bush would contact him for sporting tips.
  • “The last true WASP”: The Atlantic’s Franklin Foer writes that fawning media coverage of Bush reflects a deeper-seated mourning for the passing of the Establishment. “For more than a century, this Establishment resided at the top of the American caste system. Now it is gone, and apparently people wish it weren’t,” Foer writes. “But good manners are hardly the same as moral courage; prudence is sometimes hard-hearted. Those who are mourning the passing of the old Establishment should mourn its many failures, too.”
  • A #MeToo omission: Multiple women accused Bush of inappropriate touching late last year, but those allegations were largely absent from coverage of his death. “In its long and thorough obituary, The New York Times made no mention of the allegations. Nor did The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, or the Associated Press,” Slate’s Molly Olmstead writes.
  • World AIDS Day: World AIDS Day was also underplayed on Saturday—a cruel irony given Bush’s inaction in the face of the AIDS crisis, Steven W. Thrasher writes in The Nation. “Bush dangerously hid the vast nature of American violence beneath the seductive cloak of civility, that opiate of mass media that gets journalists and readers to let violence go unremarked,” Thrasher says.


Other notable stories:

  • In the UK, lawmaker Kate Osamor resigned from the opposition Labour Party’s leadership team following reports that she threw a bucket of water over a Times (of London) reporter at her home, then threatened to “smash [his] face in” with a bat. Osamor attracted scrutiny after her son—who she employs in her parliamentary office—was sentenced for taking $3,000 worth of drugs into a music festival. The Times reported that Osamor misled the public about when she found out.
  • In France, meanwhile, journalists nationwide have found themselves on the end of threats and physical violence as a wave of civil unrest sweeps the country in response to rising diesel taxes. For CJR, Martin Goillandeau and Makana Eyre report that a protester broke a photographer’s cheek bone in three places with a punch. Another journalist is under police protection.
  • In the hours immediately before and after dissident writer Jamal Khashoggi’s murder in early October, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman sent at least 11 messages to the adviser overseeing the operation, The Wall Street Journal’s Warren P. Strobel reports. The call log underpinned the CIA’s assessment that MBS was likely responsible for Khashoggi’s killing—an assessment rejected by Trump.
  • Nexstar has agreed to buy Tribune for just over $4 billion—a deal which would make it the largest US operator of local TV stations, Reuters’s Carl O’Donnell and Liana B. Baker report. The move comes just three months after Tribune’s attempted deal with Sinclair fell through.
  • The editorial arm of Ceros, a creative software company, looked at the increasingly diverse covers of 10 glossy magazines since 2012. Over the last two years, more than half the covers of Allure and InStyle featured people of color, Ceros found. Nearly a third of Vanity Fair covers did likewise—up from just 9 percent over the prior four-year period.
  • On Friday, Canada’s Supreme Court ordered Ben Makuch, a national security reporter for Vice, to let police access materials related to his interview with an alleged ISIS recruit—settling a long-running legal battle. Makuch called the verdict a blow to press freedom, as did advocacy groups like the Committee to Protect Journalists.
  • After the Har-Ber Herald, a high school newspaper in Arkansas, published a lengthy investigation into the transfer of five football players to a rival school, its school district suspended it, then threatened to fire its faculty adviser, BuzzFeed’s Amber Jamieson reports.
  • And on Friday, Tavi Gevinson announced the closure of Rookie, the online magazine that grew out of a fashion blog she started when she was 12. The Cut’s Amanda Arnold writes that Rookie “changed the internet” for girls and women. “The publication was known for its explicitly feminist lens, refreshing approaches to classic teen magazine sections like ‘Dear Diary,’ and alt-90s nostalgia,” Arnold says.

December 04, 2018 Law firms heading for new Wacker Drive tower Jones Day and Morgan Lewis are closing in on deals to move to the new Bank of America Tower when it opens along the Chicago River in 2020. A new skyscraper going up on Wacker Drive has lured a pair of big law firms from another building on one of the city's most famous corporate thoroughfares. In a double departure from 77 W. Wacker Drive, the Chicago offices of law firms Morgan Lewis & Bockius and Jones Day are both planning to relocate to the 55-story tower underway at 110 N. Wacker, sources familiar with the firms said. Neither firm has finalized a lease, but both are in advanced negotiations to move to the building when it opens in 2020, sources said. That trend—recently propelled by landlords giving tenants huge amounts of cash to build out new offices—is poised to continue at 110 N. Wacker and with the projected 2023 opening of the 1.2 million-square-foot Salesforce Tower Chicago at Wolf Point. Houston-based developer Hines will be looking to fill another 700,000 square feet beyond what Salesforce has leased. And on the horizon: Riverside intends to develop a 1.5 million-square-foot office tower at Union Station, just a third of which would be anchored by BMO Harris Bank if it finalizes a deal with the Toronto-based bank. The 51-story tower at 77 W. Wacker is now in line to fall victim to tenants' flight to new construction. While the high-profile building has location and proximity to the revitalized Chicago Riverwalk working in its favor to lure tenants, both departing law firms are competing for talent with other firms that have recently upgraded to newer buildings. McDermott Will & Emery and DLA Piper, for example, both left the Central Loop for the new tower at 444 W. Lake last year. https://www.chicagobusiness.com/commercial-real-estate/law-firms-heading-new-wacker-drive-tower Cleveland-based Jones Day, which was one of the anchor tenants at 77 W. Wacker when it opened in 1992, has 164 attorneys in Chicago, according to Crain's 2018 list of the city's largest law firms. (interesting timing / year when it opened at ' 77 ' Wacker )

Former president George H.W. Bush's body is currently lying in state at the Capitol Rotunda in Washington, DC. It will stay there until his state funeral at the National Cathedral tomorrow, Wednesday, December 5—a day that the Post Office and the stock markets are taking off in memoriam. Among the many visitors to the Rotunda so far are Donald and Melania Trump, whose visit lasted two entire minutes, and Bush's service dog, Sully, who probably isn’t really grieving in the way the internet’s imagining him to be but is nevertheless a very good boy, isn’t he. Yes he is. Yes he is.

Bush Sr. is the 12th president to lie in state in the Capitol building, Abraham Lincoln being the first. (Nixon, famously, did not lie in state—he and Truman are the only presidents since FDR to not do so.) Following the funeral, Bush's body will be transported by train back to Houston, where a special locomotive will then take him to College Station, Texas, the site of his presidential library. It’s the first presidential funeral train since Eisenhower’s in 1969; Robert Kennedy also was transported by train the year prior. (Again, Lincoln was the pioneer in this regard as well; his presidential funeral train stopped through 180 different cities in 1865.)

Our intermittent but longstanding tradition of allowing people to come within physical proximity to the dead bodies of government officials is a strange one. Funereal rites are usually thought of as religious in nature, while the Capitol is not only a government building, but a functioning workplace as well. Although Bush’s casket isn't open—that tradition seems to be reserved for popes—America seems to hold on to a ghoulish, old-world fascination with being in the same room as a corpse. Maybe it’s because we rarely get the chance to collectively gawp at our dead, even those concealed inside of boxes. Our best-loved celebrities are rarely given public funerals: Aretha Franklin and Muhammad Ali are among the very few in recent memory to have had a cultural impact. And the funeral of John McCain earlier this year seemed more like an opportunity for politicians and DC insiders to demonstrate some semblance of humanity rather than an outpouring of deeply felt grief.

It’s a peculiar thing we do, shuffling into a public place to see the dead body of a public figure (or, at least, the outside of their coffin). Were I in DC and anywhere near the Capitol, I doubt I’d make the effort to pay in-person respects to George H.W. Bush’s remains, which raises two questions: Whose body would I bother to see, and how far would I go to see it? My initial knee-jerk answer was that I’d travel up to five miles to see Barack Obama’s body, but I’ve thought about it a little more and I don’t know if I would even do that. I would absolutely make an effort to visit his final resting place and his library, but to view his body in repose? No, I don’t think I’d want to.

Nevertheless, we’re morbid creatures by nature, and perhaps some vestigial animal part of us needs to witness a dead body in order to accept the abstract idea that its life has ended. It also allows us to close the circuit on what has been until now an ongoing narrative (humans intensely craves conclusions, almost as much as we crave giving cuddly dog rubs to very good boys). George H.W. Bush’s state funeral will be televised tomorrow, and this new, strange type of death rite—one enabled by modern-day technology—actually makes more sense to me than all of this corpse-rubbernecking at the rotunda. Ceremonial mourning aside, a televised memorial provides the chance for the country to collectively plug into a shared American experience, even if one precipitated by death. And that kind of shared experience is becoming a rarer and rarer thing these days.

Hullo Agents of N.O.R.T.H. (Nature's Odd Cloud Raining To Houston)! I think that the reason that music can affect us emotionally (physically is a stretch), is because the music derives from the artist's emotions. It becomes a vessel for their emotions, and when we hear the music we find that our emotions are reflected. Which in a way means our emotions our amplified (?). The same way we associated different colors with different emotions (blue seems to be sad, and red is angry), sound seems to work the same way. In response to Patty's question: I think that the reason that old composers are held in such high regard is because their music was made for the elite, while modern-day music is for the general public. Music today is no longer made for the "elite" because the profitable market is the low and middle class. Plus their status, I feel is in part to the fact that they are, to put it bluntly, old. They have stood against the time and laughed. They were remembered. The only music we have from that time is the music which was *good*, anything else and it wouldn't be worth remembering. Nothing to do with the instruments or technology in use. So my question to the Rainclouds is this: What makes music worthy of being remembered?

          Op-Ed: Earthrise, The Image That Changed Our View Of Ourselves      Cache   Translate Page      


By Tony Guerrieri, Executive Director Joint Conservation Committee

Images have always meant something to our culture. When you think of any environmental event over the last century, chances are it calls to mind an image.
Environmentalism is defined by images: the 1930s Dust Bowl and soil conservation; the “Crying Indian,” who in 1971 shed a tear in response to litter and pollution; and, the cooling towers of Three Mile Island, site of the 1979 nuclear accident.
But who could have predicted that the Apollo moon missions would produce the first quintessential symbol of environmental idealism by offering a new perspective of Earth.
Fifty years ago, Apollo 8 succeeded as the first manned mission to the Moon. On December 21, 1968, three astronauts blasted off from Florida and left the earth’s low orbital confines. Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and Bill Anders were aboard the command service module that was headed towards the Moon.
The astronauts knew they were on an epic journey, but as it turned out, the image that would come to represent their journey was a single picture looking backwards.
Anders was the mission’s photographer and he captured the image on Christmas Eve 1968 that changed our view of the planet--  the now famous photograph known as “Earthrise.”
As the Apollo 8 spacecraft, flying 70 miles above the desolate lunar surface, emerged from behind the moon’s dark side, the astronauts saw something that nobody had ever seen before a splash of color rise above the gray lunar horizon.
Anders grabbed a handheld camera and began snapping pictures. Of the ten or so photos taken, Anders snapped the single iconic image of Earthrise-- a startling blue, startling fragile half-sphere-- hanging in the blackness of space above the pockmarked surface of the moon.
Later, speaking about the photo, Anders said, “We came all this way to explore the Moon and the most important thing is that we discovered the Earth.
After the mission, NASA released the color picture the astronaut had taken of Earthrise. Images don’t tell a whole story, imaginations do. Images just guide the way.
Artists, poets, philosophers and scientists were inspired by the photo.
In the New York Times, the American poet and three-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Archibald MacLeish wrote that the image of the earth would create a paradigm shift: “To see the earth as it truly is, small and blue and beautiful in that eternal silence where it floats, is to see ourselves as riders on the earth together.”
Time magazine closed out 1968 with the Earthrise photograph on its cover, with a one-word caption, “Dawn.”
In Life’s 100 Photographs that Changed the World, Galen Rowell, the famed nature photographer, dubbed it “the most influential environmental photograph ever taken.”
Earth seems so big and indestructible from our perspective, but yet so tiny and vulnerable when seen from space.
An inspiring image raises awareness of possibilities, of worlds beyond the one we directly experience and of other ways of living.
People saw their planet for the first time as a whole world – a single snapshot of humanity. Not as continents or oceans, but an entire entity.
Our entire world was shown as a small, blue finite globe in the distance with 3.5 billion human beings depending on it for life.
It’s the image that is credited with capturing the burgeoning environmental movement and has been used as a hopeful symbol of global unity.
As they rounded the moon for the ninth time, the crew made their memorable television broadcast in which they took turns reading the story of the world’s creation from the Book of Genesis.
The broadcast closed with a holiday wish from Borman: “We close with good night, good luck, a Merry Christmas, and God bless all of you – all of you on the good Earth.”
In 1969, the U.S. Postal Service issued a six cents stamp commemorating the Apollo 8 flight around the moon.
The stamp featured a detail (in color) of the Earthrise photograph and the words, “In the beginning God…,” recalling the Apollo 8 Genesis reading. As for the original Earthrise photo, the environmental movement’s iconic image – it is cloistered away at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.

          Crowds honor Bush for long service, from war to White House      Cache   Translate Page      
WASHINGTON – Soldiers, citizens in wheelchairs and long lines of others on foot wound through the hushed Capitol Rotunda on Tuesday to view George H.W. Bush’s casket and remember a president whose legacy included World War military service and a landmark law affirming the rights of the disabled.

Bob Dole, a compatriot in war, peace and political struggle, steadied himself out of his wheelchair and saluted his old friend and one-time rival.

As at notable moments in his life, Bush brought together Republicans and Democrats in his death, and not only the VIPs.

Members of the public who never voted for the man waited in the same long lines as the rest, attesting that Bush possessed the dignity and grace that deserved to be remembered by their presence on an overcast day in the capital.

“I’m just here to pay my respects,” said Jane Hernandez, a retired physician in the heavily Democratic city and suburbs. “I wasn’t the biggest fan of his presidency, but all in all he was a good, sincere guy doing a really hard job as best he could.”

Bush’s service dog, Sully, was brought to the viewing, too – his main service these last months since Barbara Bush’s death in April being to rest his head on her husband’s lap. Service dogs are trained to do that.

The CIA also honored Bush, the only spy chief to become president, as three agency directors past and present joined the public in the viewing.

In the midst of the period of mourning, first lady Melania Trump gave Laura Bush, one of her predecessors, a tour of holiday decorations at the White House, a “sweet visit during this somber week,” as Mrs. Bush’s Instagram account put it. And the Trumps visited members of the Bush family at the Blair House presidential guesthouse, where they are staying. Former President George W. Bush and his wife greeted the Trumps outside before everyone went in for the private, 20-minute visit.

The Bushes later made a surprise visit to the Capitol Rotunda, shaking hands with visitors and tourists lined up to honor the family patriarch.

George W. and Laura Bush entered first, and the former president put his hand on the flag-draped casket holding the remains of his father. Their twin daughters, Jenna and Barbara, followed. Jeb Bush and his wife joined along with about a dozen other members of the Bush family. They mingled for about 10 minutes, at one point George W. Bush held up a baby.

Although President Donald Trump will attend Bush’s national funeral service Wednesday, he is not among the eulogists announced by the Bush family, a list that includes George W. Bush. The others are Alan Simpson, the former senator and acerbic wit from Wyoming; Brian Mulroney, the former Canadian prime minister who also gave a eulogy for Ronald Reagan; and presidential historian Jon Meacham.

People lined up before dawn to pay respects to the 41st president, a son and father of privilege now celebrated by everyday citizens for his common courtesies and depth of experience.

“He was so qualified, and I think he was just a decent man,” said Sharon Terry, touring Washington with friends from an Indianapolis garden club. Said her friend Sue Miller, also in line for the viewing: “I actually think I underestimated him when he was in office. My opinion of him went up seeing how he conducted himself as a statesman afterward.”

Fred Curry, one of the few African-Americans in line, is a registered Democrat from Hyattsville, Maryland, who voted for Bush in 1988, the election won by the one-term president. “Honestly, I just liked him,” he said. “He seemed like a sincere and decent man and you couldn’t argue with his qualifications.”

Inside the Capitol, Sully, the 2-year-old Labrador retriever assigned to Bush, sat by the casket in the company of people who came to commemorate Bush’s signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the 1990 law that, among its many provisions, required businesses that prohibit pets to give access to service dogs.

“After Mrs. Bush’s death, general companionship was a big part of Sully’s job,” John Miller, president and CEO of America’s VetDogs, said in a phone interview. “One of the things that I think was important to the president was the rest command, where Sully would rest his head on the president’s lap.”

The law was just one point of intersection for Bush and Dole, now 95, who was one of its leading advocates in the Senate.

They were fellow World War II veterans, Republican Party leaders, fierce rivals for the 1988 Republican presidential nomination won by Bush (“Stop lying about my record,” Dole snapped at Bush) and skilled negotiators. Dole, an Army veteran hit by German machine gunfire in Italy, has gone through life with a disabled right arm. Bush, a Navy pilot, survived a bail-out from his stricken aircraft over the Pacific and an earlier crash landing.

On Tuesday Dole was helped out of his wheelchair by an aide, slowly steadied himself and saluted Bush with his left hand, his chin quivering.

Dignitaries had come forward on Monday, too, to honor the Texan whose service to his country extended three quarters of a century, from World War II through his final years as an advocate for volunteerism and relief for people displaced by natural disaster. Bush, 94, died Friday.

Trump’s relationship with the Bush family has been tense. The current president has mocked the elder Bush for his “thousand points of light” call to volunteerism, challenged his son’s legacy as president and trounced “low-energy” Jeb Bush in the Republican presidential primaries en route to office. The late President Bush called Trump a “blowhard.”

Those insults have been set aside, but the list of funeral service speakers marked the first time since Lyndon Johnson’s death in 1973 that a sitting president was not tapped to eulogize a late president. (Bill Clinton did so for Richard Nixon, and George W. Bush eulogized Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford.)

In an invocation opening Monday evening’s ceremony, the U.S. House chaplain, the Rev. Patrick J Conroy, praised Bush’s commitment to public service, from Navy pilot to congressman, U.N. ambassador, envoy to China and then CIA director before being elected vice president and then president.

“Here lies a great man,” said Rep. Paul Ryan, the House speaker, and “a gentle soul. ... His legacy is grace perfected.”

After services in Washington, Bush’s remains will be returned to Houston to lie in repose at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church before burial Thursday at his family plot on the presidential library grounds at Texas A&M University in College Station. His final resting place will be alongside Barbara Bush, his wife of 73 years who died in April, and Robin Bush, the daughter they lost to leukemia in 1953 at age 3.

Trump has ordered the federal government closed Wednesday for a national day of mourning. Flags on public buildings are flying at half-staff for 30 days.

Bush’s death reduces membership in the ex-presidents’ club to four: Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

          Trump se queda solo en su defensa de Bin Salman      Cache   Translate Page      
Los senadores que interrogaron ayer a la directora de la CIA sobre el asesinato del periodista saudí Jamal Khashoggi han quedado convencidos de la culpabilidad del príncipe heredero saudí, Mohamed bin Salman. «Si tuviera que comparecer ante un jurado, en 30 minutos le declararían culpable», dijo al término de la vista oral el senador republicano Bob Corker, presidente de la Comisión de Exteriores de la cámara alta. Gina Haspel, la jefa de la CIA, enfureció al Senado la semana pasada al ausentarse de una vista a la que sí acudieron los ministros de Defensa, James Mattis, y Exteriores, Mike Pompeo. Después de la enardecida defensa de la inocencia de Bin Salman por parte de Donald Trump, los senadores querían la misma información de la que dispone él. Tras recibirla ayer, están aún más convencidos de la culpabilidad del príncipe. Estas gestiones del Senado son un problema de gran magnitud para Trump. Los senadores tienen la intención de aprobar sus propias sanciones a Arabia Saudí por el asesinato del periodista, que vivía exiliado en Washington. En los próximos días votarán a favor de interrumpir cualquier ayuda militar del Pentágono a la coalición que el reino árabe lidera en la guerra de Yemen. La directora de la CIA se vio obligada ayer a hacer lo que fútilmente intentó evitar hace una semana: desmentir al presidente. Su comparecencia en el Capitolio se produjo a puerta cerrada y sólo ante una selección de miembros de las comisiones de Inteligencia y Exteriores. Pero en cuanto acabó, los senadores de ambos partidos corrieron a condenar públicamente a Bin Salman en los pasillos del Capitolio, donde se celebraba el velatorio por George H. W. Bush. «No es que en este caso haya una pistola humeante, hay un serrucho humeante», dijo el senador republicano Lindsey Graham, habitualmente fiel aliado de Trump, haciendo referencia a las pruebas de que Khashoggi fue desmembrado en el consulado saudí en Estambul el pasado 2 de octubre. «Salgo de esta vista oral con el convencimiento de que mis sospechas previas eran correctas», dijo a los periodistas. Consciente de los problemas que su apoyo a la corona saudí está provocando dentro de su propio partido, Trump canceló cualquier reunión con Bin Salman en la cumbre del G-20 en Argentina. De momento, se ha conformado con una serie de tímidas sanciones: retirada de visados y congelación de cuentas a una veintena de funcionarios saudíes acusados de participar en el asesinato. La CIA ha llegado a la conclusión de que Bin Salman autorizó el asesinato a través de un lugarteniente suyo, Salud al Qahtani, quien supervisó personalmente la operación en la que participaron 15 agentes y soldados enviados a Turquía hace dos meses. La corona saudí asegura que está investigando a los sospechosos y que castigará a los culpables de lo que considera una operación clandestina ejecutada por unos soldados que actuaban en solitario. De momento, 14 senadores republicanos han avanzado que votarán a favor de sancionar a Arabia Saudí. Se trata de un desafío en toda regla a un presidente por parte de su propio partido, algo sin precedentes en Washington. Tregua política por el funeral de Bush El funeral de George H. W. Bush, presidente número 41 de EE.UU., se celebra hoy en Washington, tras dos días de velatorio de cuerpo presente en el Capitolio. El luto oficial ha servido para posponer una batalla feroz por los presupuestos, que Donald Trump quiere supeditar a la construcción de un muro en la frontera con México. Ambos partidos han pactado una prórroga presupuestaria de dos semanas. Si las negociaciones encallan, el Gobierno puede verse obligado al cierre temporal por falta de fondos a partir del 21 de diciembre. El 3 de enero comienza la nueva legislatura, durante la cual los demócratas controlarán la Cámara de Representantes y los Republicanos, el Senado. Tras el entierro de hoy, el cuerpo de Bush será trasladado a Houston, donde será enterrado mañana.

          Beri Penghormatan Terakhir kepada George HW Bush, Begini Reaksi Anjing Pelayannya      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Washington DC - Sully, anjing yang setia melayani George Herbert Walker Bush atau dikenal sebagai George HW Bush, kembali mendapatkan sorotan media massa lokal dan internasional.

Dalam sebuah video yang dipublikasikan oleh Time, hewan tersebut tampak ikut serta mendampingi jenazah majikannya, saat peti mati presiden ke-41 Amerika Serikat itu berada di Gedung Capitol pada Selasa, 4 Desember waktu setempat.

Anjing ras Labrador tersebut sebelumnya menjadi pendamping Bush pada Juni lalu, saat istrinya, Barbara Bush, wafat. Sully, yang berusia 2 tahun, dilaporkan akan tinggal bersama keluarga Bush setelah pemakaman kenegaraan dilaksanakan pada Rabu, 5 Desember.

Sebuah foto yang menampilkan Sully sedang duduk tergeletak di samping peti mati Bush menjadi viral setelah mantan juru bicara kepresidenan, Jim McGrath, mengunggahnya ke Twitter pada hari Minggu.

"Misi selesai," tulis McGrath, sebagaimana dikutip dari Time, Rabu (5/12/108), sembari diikuti #Remembering41.

Usai mengantarkan peti mati Bush ke Gedung Capitol, binatang terlatih itu kemudian dipandu oleh manajer America’s VetDogs, Valerie Cramer, untuk memberikan penghormatan terakhir. Sully tampak mengenakan rompi dengan motif bendera Amerika yang dihiasi dengan namanya.

Sully sendiri dilatih oleh America’s VetDogs untuk membantu George HW Bush--yang mengidap penyakit parkinson dan menggunakan kursi roda sejak 2012--untuk membantu Bush melakukan kegiatan-kegiatan ringan, seperti mengambil barang dan membuka pintu.

Namun, ajudan Evan Sisley mengatakan kepada AP pada Juni lalu bahwa Sully telah menjadi teman yang luar biasa bagi Bush.

Setelah layanan pemakaman selesai, Sully akan bergabung dengan Walter Reed National Military Medical Center atau Pusat Medis Militer Nasional Walter Reed di Bethesda, Maryland, untuk membantu veteran lainnya.

Demikian seperti yang ditulis oleh putra George HW Bush yang merupakan presiden ke-43 Amerika Serikat, George W. Bush, di Instagram pada Senin, 3 Desember. Sully akan membantu tentara yang terluka dan personel yang menjalani terapi fisik dan okupasi, menurut America’s VetDogs.

"Keluarga kami akan sangat merindukan anjing ini, kami senang mendengar kabar bahwa dia akan mendapatkan rumah baru, Walter Reed, dari 41," ujar George W. Bush di akunnya @geirgewbush.

Penghormatan Terakhir Donald Trump

Presiden AS Donald Trump dan Melania Trump memberikan penghormatan terakhir kepada George HW Bush di Gedung Capitol, Washington, Senin (3/12). Jenazah Presiden ke-41 AS itu disemayamkan di Rotunda Capitol Hill selama beberapa hari. (AP/Jacquelyn Martin)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Presiden Amerika Serikat, Donald Trump, dan Ibu Negara, Melania Trump, telah memberikan penghormatan terakhir kepada Presiden George HW Bush saat jenazah almarhum disemayamkan di Rotunda Gedung Kongres AS (US Capitol Rotunda) pada Senin, 3 Desember 2018 malam waktu setempat.

Trump melakukan kunjungan singkat ke Rotunda, di mana masyarakat dapat mengunjungi peti mati presiden ke-41 AS itu, sampai mendiang dimakamkan pada Kamis, 6 Desember 2018 di tanah kelahirannya di Negara Bagian Texas, demikian seperti dikutip dari BBC, Selasa, 4 Desember.

Donald Trump, yang memiliki riwayat bentrok di masa lalu dengan keluarga Bush, akan menghadiri upacara pemakaman pendahulunya itu.

Jenazah Bush tiba dari rumahnya di Texas ke Rotunda Kongres AS pada Senin malam, disambut oleh 21 letupan senjata (tradisi AS untuk figur berjasa yang meninggal).

Dalam sebuah pidato menyambut jenazah George HW Bush, Ketua House of Representatives (lower-chamber Kongres) Paul Ryan mengatakan: "Di sini ada seorang yang hebat", menambahkan bahwa "tidak ada yang lebih baik menyelaraskan sukacita hidup dan kewajiban hidup".

Ryan mengatakan Bush adalah "pemimpin yang hebat dan orang yang baik, jiwa yang lembut dari tekad yang kuat".

Pemimpin mayoritas Senat (upper-chamber Kongres) Mitch McConnell mengatakan: "Melalui Perang Dingin dan runtuhnya Uni Soviet, dia membuat kita tetap di jalur. Ketika aturan hukum diperlukan membela di Teluk Persia, dia membuat kita tetap di jalur."

Dari Texas ke Washington, Bush 'menumpang' di Air Force One --pesawat kepresidenan AS-- untuk terakhir kalinya, yang khusus pada saat itu, berganti nama menjadi Special Air Mission 41, sebagai penghormatan kepada mendiang presiden.

Bush senior, yang menjabat sebagai presiden AS ke-41 antara 1989 dan 1993, telah menerima pengobatan untuk penyakit Parkinson dan telah dirawat di rumah sakit dengan infeksi darah pada April 2018.

Masyarakat akan dapat memberikan penghormatan di rotunda hingga ia disemayamkan untuk didoakan di National Cathedral di Washington DC pada Rabu 5 Desember 2018. Tanggal itu ditetapkan oleh Trump sebagai hari berkabung nasional. The New York Stock Exchange dan Nasdaq juga akan ditutup pada hari itu untuk menghormatinya.

Usai disemayamkan, Bush senior akan dimakamkan pada Kamis 6 Desember 2018 di negara bagian tanah kelahirannya, Texas, tepatnya di George HW Bush Presidential Library and Museum. Istri Bush, Barbara, yang tutup usia lebih dulu pada delapan bulan lalu, juga dimakamkan di sana.

Bush senior, ayah dari Presiden ke-43 AS George W Bush, meninggal di usia 94 tahun di Houston, Texas, pada 30 November 2018 malam waktu setempat.

Sebuah pernyataan dari satuan tugas militer gabungan yang mendukung berbagai peristiwa di seputar pemakaman kenegaraan menjanjikan akan memberikan "sebuah penghormatan kelas satu" kepada almarhum George HW Bush.

          Cross-Training Tips from Joel Prouty, Trainer to the (Ballet) Stars      Cache   Translate Page      


A good personal trainer can coach you through a challenging, safe workout. A great one understands the unique demands dance places on your body and helps you correct specific weaknesses to make you an even stronger performer. Enter Joel Prouty.

Before his passion for fitness took over, he was a member of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Houston Ballet and Boston Ballet, toured with Twyla Tharp and performed in Broadway's Come Fly Away. When he retired from the stage in 2010, he dove into exercise physiology courses at New York University, captivated by the idea of dancers as athletes. "My main focus and obsession was how to train like an athlete—strong, powerful, quick and resilient—while still maintaining the long, lean aesthetic required to be a dancer, and perhaps more specifically a classical ballet dancer."


None


Today, he provides one-on-one training to students and pros alike, though his client list reads like a Who's Who's in Dance in New York City. Sara Mearns, James Whiteside and Lloyd Knight are just a few of the performers who seek out Prouty's expertise at a gym in Manhattan. Not in NYC? No worries. We picked his brain for the best workout tips for dancers.

"It Either Is or It Isn't"


If you want to make your cross-training worthwhile, using a "50-percent approach" won't cut it, says Prouty. "You're either working hard or you're not," he explains. "You leg is either straight or it's not. You're either on relevé or you're not. You're either jumping high or you're not. Even if you are coming back from an injury, you can work 100 percent on a different focus."

It's Not About Adding More


You may need to rethink your approach to working out. "Cross-training for dancers is not about adding more hours to an already grueling work or training schedule. Nor is it necessarily about sweating it out in a bootcamp environment or going through a routine meant to beat you up or burn extra calories," says Prouty. "It's about strengthening weaknesses from a different point of view than what you're doing in the studio."

Examine Your Rep


Prouty trains dancers from a variety of companies, and he's found that each company tends to have unique dancer weaknesses. "It's based on their rep and the way that they rehearse and their schedules," he says. Consider how you've been trained and the styles you're dancing when devising a workout plan.

Turnout Is Great But...


A common issue Prouty sees is dancers walking like a "proud duck." If this sounds like you (raise your hands, bunheads!), cross-training in parallel could help reiterate the natural alignment of your body and correct muscular imbalances.

Don't Be Afraid of the Gym


When it comes to exercising, the biggest issue dancers have to overcome is less physical than it is mental, says Prouty. "We've been taught from Day 1 that we shouldn't go in a gym, that we should stay away from weights. Especially the women with this strong aesthetic requirement of being thin." But in recent years, he's seen that attitude slowly change as pros like Misty Copeland and Sara Mearns have emphasized that dancers are athletes. "Now that we have that reputation, we've got to prove it," he says.

You Might Cry—and That's Okay


"It's hard all day, every day to stare at yourself in the mirror and go through a long list of things that are wrong," says Prouty. Instead, he encourages dancers to reconsider their reflection. "Their biggest cheerleader, their biggest support group is that reflection in the mirror."

And he doesn't say that just as a platitude. "I have clients that break down and sob in sessions. Almost all my clients, in fact, have done that—men and women—and it's a constant battle for perfection. We're finding weaknesses, and it's important to appreciate those as a challenge and not as a failure."

          Strange Fruit #146: The Line Between Safety & Free Speech on University Campuses      Cache   Translate Page      
Since we spoke last week about University of Louisville President James Ramsey's poor treatment of Latino students on campus, racial tension has come to a head on other campuses across the country - most notably at the University of Missouri. And while we'd all like to think of college campuses as free from harassment and racism, banning certain speech outright brings up First Amendment Issues, and some say it can dampen the free exchange of ideas that should be a hallmark of educational environments. We talk about it this week with attorney A. Holland Houston, who joins us for an all-Juicy-Fruit episode. We also turn to her for perspective on Judge Olu Steven's recent dismissal of an all-white jury in the trial of a black defendant, and how the demographic makeup of a jury can affect the outcome of a trial. And she weighs in on the assault-by-twerking case out of DC, which sounds comical, but does bring up some serious issues of gender and sexual assault. Two women are being sought by police after forcibly dancing against (and groping) a man who was waiting in the check-out line. "What's good for the goose is good for the gander," she explains. We discuss whether people would like be more upset and less amused if the genders in the case were reversed. Or as Houston puts it, "What happens if women are the ones who are the aggressors, and if it crosses the line of, this is not the behavior that I want." Then WFPL's political reporter Ashley Lopez joins us to catch us up on a hot topic that's closer to home: the proposed methane plant in West Louisville. The story is complicated, and the players are familiar to most of us who live in Louisville. The ultimate question is, did West Louisville leaders sell out the health and needs of their neighbors in exchange for a payout? Or was the plant an inevitability anyway, so it was pragmatic to bring some money from the company back into the community, if possible?

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.

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 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?

          Guest Post: 7 Ways to Boost Energy Without an Energy Drink      Cache   Translate Page      

Y'all it is the Holidays and there is so much to do.  I try to grab extra coffee or vitamins to stay awake, but I am looking for more "natural" ways to get energy, so today I am sharing this post By Dr. Niket Sonpal NYC Internist and Gastroenterologist.


 7 Ways to Boost Energy Without an Energy Drink



After seeing the news about a research study out of the University of Texas Health Center in Houston, which found the diameter of blood vessels to become “dramatically smaller” 90 minutes after consuming a 24-ounce energy drink, I decided to offer some ways to boost energy without an energy drink.

While the 24-ounces used in the study of 44 healthy, non-smokers in their 20’s, is 3 times the size of a typical 8-ounce energy drink, there is plenty of research out there that shows chugging energy drinks is not the best way to get more energized.

When we look at the levels of sugar and caffeine in these energy drinks and the habitual nature in which they are consumed, we see issues such as increased heart rate, elevated blood pressure, thickening of the blood, gastrointestinal irritation plus anxiety, sleep disruption and restlessness.

Here’s what I suggest consuming for a more sustainable and healthy way to energize.

1. Hydrate with water.


The idea is to follow the 8x8 rule. Eight ounces of water 8 times per day which adds up to a half gallon. Most people are not getting anywhere near this water intake opting for coffee, juices, sodas or energy drinks instead. I challenge my patients to try the 8x8 rule and even declare going “H20 Only.” By the third day, they notice they’re feeling more energized.

2. Exercise 30 minutes per day.


Something as simple as going for a fast-paced walk elevates heart rate and healthy blood flow. This improves stamina and gets energy flowing throughout our bodies. A lot of people claim they don’t have time to exercise which calls for creative ways to get exercise in. I had a client add dancing for 30 minutes upon her arrival from work with her 4-year-old daughter. This provided a way for both mom and daughter to get moving in a fun easy way right at home.


3. Sprinkle in chia seeds.


These low carb seeds have an energy packing blend of protein, fats, and fiber. Chia seeds regulate blood sugar, so you won’t have these spikes then drops. They deliver big time nutrients with very low calories. Loaded with antioxidants, chia seeds were a highly valuable energy staple for Mayan and Aztec warriors in ancient Mexico who consumed them knowing they would be sustained, not hungry and energized for hours and hours.

4. Eat foods rich in Omega 3 Fatty Acids.


Omega 3’s are big-time energy enhancers. Eating salmon, sea bass, tuna, oysters, shrimp, seaweed salad, walnuts, edamame, and cauliflower are just a few Omega 3 rich staples to add to the shopping list.

5. Get good quality sleep.


Many of my patients who see me for gastrointestinal issues often benefit from getting disciplined with setting a bedtime, wake time and enhancing the quality of their sleep. This could be simple things such as pre-sleep meditation with an app, removing the television from the bedroom, buying curtains that block light, setting the temperature to suit your body best, buying new sheets and even a new mattress.


Making the bedroom a comfortable haven for quality deep sleep is incredibly important. Sleep is our time to recharge and when it is disturbed, we will feel sluggish during the day.


6. Get more magnesium.


Magnesium activates adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which can be thought of like the “magic button” of energy within our cells. According to studies, about half of the people in the USA and Europe aren’t getting the recommended amount of magnesium (300 milligrams for women and 350 for men).

Interestingly, most Americans and Europeans complain of energy drains and sluggishness and typically attribute their lack of energy to busier, more demanding lifestyles. However, the problem, most commonly, is a lack of magnesium which helps us convert food into energy, create proteins from amino acids, and helps regulate our nervous system.

7. Get more B12.


Known as the “energy vitamin” it’s important to note that the only time B12 will give you energy is if you’re deficient in B12. It’s wise to get complete blood work done to see if you are in fact deficient in B12 in addition to other key vitamins and minerals.B12 is found in beef, fish, and dairy and these days more and more people are cutting red meat and dairy out of their diets.

B12 helps to make red blood cells, which carry oxygen, so when there’s a dip in red blood cell production we’re being deprived oxygen which leads to feeling run down, the first tell-tale sign of B12 deficiency. Body weakness, shortness of breath brain fog, forgetfulness and lack of focus are also symptoms. Yogurt, Swizz cheese, fortified cereals, Shiitake mushrooms, and clams are other great sources of B12.

Late president Bush lies in state in WashingtonBush, a decorated World War II fighter pilot and former CIA chief who served as vice president to Ronald Reagan before winning the White House, died Friday at age 94, at his home in Houston. When the rule of law needed defending in the Persian Gulf, he kept us on course," Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell said in the first of several eulogies. McConnell lauded Bush -- who occupied the White House from 1989 to 1993 -- as a patriot who steered the country as straight as he had steered his airplane.

          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.

          IKE’S LIST OF DOMAINS AT AUCTION FOR Tuesday, December 4th      Cache   Translate Page      

Domain Shane Domain Shane:
As Shane posted yesterday,  the latest DomainSherpa.com review came out Monday. Shane talked about mixing it up on the show in the future because the portfolios are so bad. I remember several years ago Cyger would take one domain  submission from anyone that wanted to submit a name for the upcoming show. There might be 30 domains but all from different people. I always like this idea because every week I’d have a chance to see if the domain I submitted was talked about. Maybe they should bring this back or do it every once in awhile.
Another idea is to have the submitter give an explanation as to why the hell they registered the name, followed by their thought process on why this name, out of all they might own, was submitted for review. That would give the Sherpa’s points to discuss with the submitter, and not just politely dismiss the portfolio as the registrations of a lunatic. But damn, It is unfathomable to me that so many people just keep doing the same things over and over. I mean there is no way these people are watching the other episodes and thinking, “hmmm, maybe my names are different and awesome”. It’s time for tough love, feelings may get hurt, but you’ll be better for it. You’ll not only save money, you might actually make some too.
Maybe the point’s not being made clearly and loudly enough: WILL SOMEONE OR SOME BUSINESS BUY THIS DOMAIN? When it comes down to it, that is the only question that matters. I have a hard time believing the portfolio submitter was like “hells yes! Jackpot! I just bought Upper Abdomen in the .com! You hear that? Ching Ching, that’s the sound of the cash register bringing in the money!” 
I pulled some domains that are available to register based on some of the root words used in the list. I didn’t even like most of the root words that made up the list, but I used them anyway. As always, these names may not sell, may not even be “good” domains, but I think they’re better than the submitted list. They were all previously registered so they’re not potential traditional “hand registrations” I’m calling these “reg fee resurrections”, names that were deleted at some point in the past.

          Suge Knight Is Hit With the Biggie Question in Trailer for Antoine Fuqua’s Showtime Documentary (Video)      Cache   Translate Page      

Did Suge Knight have Notorious B.I.G. killed?

In the first trailer for “American Dream/American Knightmare,” Showtime’s long-in-the-works documentary on the incarcerated rap mogul, Knight is asked if he was involved in the 1997 murder of the rapper. But of course, you’ll have to tune in to hear Knight’s answer.

The documentary from “Training Day” director Antoine Fuqua, which was first announced in 2011, will premiere on Dec. 21 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT.

In the doc, Fuqua delves deep into the life and storied exploits of the iconic Death Row Records co-founder, Marion “Suge” Knight, as well as the volatile and highly influential era in music that he presided over. Through a series of interviews with Knight, viewers are guided through his world as he personally reveals exactly how it all happened and why it all fell apart. Once described as the “most feared man in hip-hop,” Knight is currently in jail, sentenced to 28 years in prison after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter in a 2015 hit-and-run death.

“In this documentary – which took years of research, production and labor to complete – Suge Knight discusses for the first time his complex life in detail,” said Fuqua. “The audience will learn how he built and lost Death Row Records and his views about the rap music scene. Suge also gives a first-person account and new details about the Las Vegas shooting that seriously injured him and that took the life of Tupac Shakur. This documentary will give viewers more access to Suge’s story than ever before. This is a cautionary tale of one man’s choices and the consequences of his decisions.”

“American Dream/American Knightmare” is directed by Fuqua and produced by him and his Fuqua Films banner, Bradley J. Fischer and Eva Gunz.
