THE ESSENTIALS

WHAT #5 Michigan (8-0) vs
#46 Northwestern(6-2)
WHERE Welsh-Ryan Arena
Evanston, IL
WHEN 9 PM
LINE Michigan –6 (Kenpom)
TV BTN

THE US

This is going very well!

Michigan is undefeated and if they can brave the new Welsh-Ryan there's a very good chance they get through the year unscathed. They've unleashed beatdowns on every opponent so far, but Northwestern provides a couple of potential roadblocks.

One: it's a road game. All basketball teams have weird road games where they shoot horribly and the refereeing seems absurdly tilted. Two: last year Northwestern bottled up Michigan's offense in two ugly  games by playing a lot of zone, and pretty much the last "oh no what if" left in this season is "what if they play a good zone D." As you'll see, the Wildcats have the length to make their zone annoying indeed.

At some point Michigan is going to look mortal, and this is a good candidate. Hopefully their defense carries them through even if that's the case. The alternative is more red flowers down below us.

THE LINEUP CARD

Projected starters are in bold. Hover over headers for stat explanations. The "Should I Be Mad If He Hits A Three" methodology: we're mad if a guy who's not good at shooting somehow hits one. Yes, you're still allowed to be unhappy if a proven shooter is left open. It's a free country.

Pos. # Name Yr. Ht./Wt. %Min %Poss ORtg SIBMIHHAT
G 11 Anthony Gaines So. 6'4, 200 58 15 93 Yes
Never shoots, for good reason. 43/27 last year and worse this year. TO rate of 28 is awful. Blocks a lot of shots for a 6'4" guard though?
G 14 Ryan Taylor Sr. 6'6, 195 79 20 112 No
Evansville grad transfer. Finding life in a major conference much more difficult but still a low-TO guy and shooting is shooting. Early scuffles (31% from three) probably a mirage, must check.
F 21 AJ Turner Jr. 6'7, 188 80 19 99 Maybe?
BC transfer. Decent numbers as a low-usage guy there two years ago; currently getting to the line a ton at 88% and missing all his threes.
F 4 Vic Law Sr. 6'7 200 78 26 117 No
Stretch four with low-ish TO rate shooting 48/45 is most Beilein player on NW roster.
C 5 Dererk Pardon So. 6'8, 250 77 22 125 Yes
I just learned that dude has an extraneous R in his name. WTF! Crushing it so far with top 20 OREB rate, 66% from floor with 22 usage early. Both are big steps forward.
C 22 Pete Nance Fr. 6'10 210 33 18 93 Maybe
Erstwhile M recruit chose poorly. Miniscule rebounding numbers on both ends, shooting too early to tell. Beanpole.
C 25 Barret Benson Jr. 6'10", 240 23 16 109 Yes
Just another backup C. JABC? JABC.
G 2 Ryan Greer Fr. 6'2, 185 21 18 65 Yes
Composite #341 is closest thing to PG on roster. Miserable in all facets so far after reclassifying to 2018.
F 23 Miller Kopp Fr. 6'7, 210 33 25 94 No
Composite #116 FR off to good start from three but miserable inside line, lot of TOs.

THE THEM

julia-louis-dreyfus-4ac9239937338521

Positionless basketball is all the rage these days and it's not hard to see why. But it's not a great idea to do it on accident, and that appears to be the case in Evanston. Bryant McIntosh graduated, projected replacement Jordan Lathon had his admission mysteriously revoked by the school in May, and Absolutely Nobody stepped into the void.

The team that results from that abrupt about-face is a bunch of wings without a point guard. Everyone in the Northwestern starting lineup is between 6'4" and 6'8". They share the ball—nine different players have assist rates in double digits. But not very well—only two of those players have assist rates higher than their turnover rates.

Thus far things have been middling. Northwestern has a 22-point win over a Utah team that's just outside of the Kenpom top 100, a six-point win at home against #76 Georgia Tech, and some rote walkovers. They also have 19-point loss to #84 Fresno State. A two-point loss to Indiana at Assembly Hall is probably their best performance of the year, and it happened on Saturday.

The twin engines keeping this rickety boat afloat are Vic Law and Dererk Pardon. (Yes, "Dererk." Is it common knowledge that Pardon's got an extraneous R floating around his name? I am flabbergasted right now.)

Anyway: Law is a very Beilein player. He's 6'7" and an excellent three point shooter (39% on almost 400 career attempts) who's just as good at the line; he vacuums up defensive rebounds. His turnover rate is just meh. He's not just a shooter but he's a far worse player once he gets inside the arc. He was 45% from two last year and is at 48% this year despite an early-season schedule heavy on bad defenses. He's not much of an athlete, so he doesn't get to the rim much and when he does he's barely over 50%.

As a senior his usage has shot up; his efficiency has gone up as well as he's added a fair number of assists without bumping his TO rate; he's shooting more free throws and hitting 45% from deep. Michigan's going to test his ability to drive. It's probably not going go well for him, but he's hitting about half his Other Twos so he's got a good backup plan. Law has added a fair number of unassisted threes this year, so Michigan will have to be vigilant.

39422948134_00fc0eb22e_k

holy cow check out the tiny cheerleader [JD Scott]

Pardon is a crafty center who's been an efficient, if low-usage, scorer for the duration of his career in Evanston. He's upped his usage annually once he emerged as a starter and he's up to 22% this year; given the supporting cast that should probably be higher. Pardon's been a top 100 OREB gent the last two years and has a ridiculous 17% in the early going; he's a decent shot blocker and gets to the line a lot. Historically he does not convert very well once there but he's at 67% this year and has steadily risen over the course of his career.

Pardon's most recent outing was a comprehensive clobbering of Indiana in which he went 11 of 15 from two with a series of post-ups usually on Juwan Morgan. Teske's obviously a different beast than the 6'7" Morgan. Last year Pardon struggled against Michigan, going 6 of 14 from the floor with one assist against four TOs. This year it's going to be mostly Teske instead of mostly Wagner, and that'll be a stiff test.

Evansville grad transfer Ryan Taylor is the other functional offensive player. Taylor took an astounding 41% of Evansville's shots last year, which was tops nationally. Despite being a 6'6" guy in a low-major conference, Taylor was allergic to the rim (12% of his shots). He's an excellent shooter both off the bounce and in spot-up situations, but he is very much Just A Shooter even if he took an ungodly number of twos last year. Those were all jumpshots. His sub-20 FT rate is evidence enough of that.

The rest of Taylor's profile is prototypical JAS. Few assists, fewer TOs, nonexistent as a rebounder. He's having some early issues from three (31%) but he was at 38% and 42% the last two years and should rebound to about that level—shooting is shooting.

Possessions used by anyone else on the roster are boons. The only other guy on the roster with an ORTG over 100 is little used backup C Barrett Benson, and he was at 96 last year.

BC transfer AJ Turner is yet another 6'7" wing who might have a case that his early issues are just bad three point luck. He's 5 of 27 on the season; two years ago he hit 37%. But his TO rate is extremely bad and his free throws, which are propping him up, were heavily concentrated in games against three sub-200 Kenpom opponents. Close out and if he wants to drive it's fine, like everyone else.

Sophomore Anthony Gaines is the final starter and is an abominable offensive player. He shot 43/27 last year in about half of Northwestern's minutes. Things have not improved this year; in fact his TO rate has shot up to 28. Gaines has gotten to the line an absurd amount and would otherwise be in the 80s in ORTG. The good news, such as it is, is that he blocks a lot of shots for a 6'4" guy. So he's got that going for him.

Northwestern's bench is mostly freshman Miller Kopp, yet another 6'7" wing. He's started his career hot from three but is shooting 32% inside the arc. Too many turnovers, as per usual for freshmen. The rest of it is Benson, a Generic Backup C, and one-time Michigan recruit Pete Nance. Nance has a lot of potential but is currently listed at 6'10, 210 and has the rebounding stats to match. Too early to say much about his abilities other than he should be redshirting and he's perfectly willing to take threes.

Guards Ryan Greer and Jordan Ash get scattered minutes in which they turn the ball over a third of the time they use a possession and don't do anything else to make up for it.

THE TEMPO-FREE

Torvik overview

Billy Donlon heads up the D after he defected from Michigan and at least early it looks like his teachings have taken hold. The first inklings that Michigan would prevent opponents from launching threes came during the post-Maverick section of Donlon's lone year in Ann Arbor, and that's carried over: the Wildcats are 52nd at preventing launches and in the top 100 at defending those.

They've maintained a good two-point D while doing this, and in this they're a lot like Michigan's defense. Other things not so much: NW is currently a high-pressure, high-risk D that gets a lot of turnovers but also gives up a lot of free throws.

The offense is the clunky thing it usually is. They're getting a lot of offensive boards (61st) and free throws(44th) and hitting those free throws. Anything from the floor is a major struggle. NW hovers around 200th in eFG and has a turnover rate of almost 20. They are vulnerable to steals, as a large team with no point guard should be.

THE KEYS

Prep for zone. Northwestern played a bunch of 2-3 zone last year and had good success with it against Michigan, which put up 0.91 PPP in a loss and 0.98 PPP in a win. This year the Wildcats are shaped even more like a typical 2-3 zone team with a bunch of wings everywhere.

Michigan's early offensive struggles came against low major teams that threw a bunch of junk zones and forced bad threes up; Michigan did do some good work against Providence a couple weeks later. But Northwestern is on another level, defensively.

No help. The only Northwestern player who's able to do anything at the rim is Pardon, and if he goes off for 24 on 15 shots against John Teske I'll eat a lemon. The Villanova gameplan where there's absolutely no help for anyone should be effective.

Nobody is getting to the bucket on this team even against some not great defenses; Michigan should be able to stay in front and force a ton of tough contested jumpers. From two.

Sticky fingers. Michigan isn't a team that forces a ton of turnovers or gets a ton of steals but Zavier Simpson and, uh, John Teske should have some opportunities to pick some pockets against the series of high-TO, loose-handled wings Northwestern will throw at Michigan.

Michigan's transition offense (65% eFG) is deadly. Might be a good way to avoid Donlon's half-court D.

Get downhill on closeouts. NW will close out hard, giving Matthews and Iggy excellent driving opportunities. Pardon is a decent rim defender but not a game-changer.

I think this will be a lot like the football game between these two schools.  Some ugly stuff early on as NW plays it's one card and Michigan has to adjust, but UM should be able to pull ahead simply because they can make NW move around on defense more than they'd like.  And defensively, I can't see NW getting anything going consistently.

I was worried about Michigan facing a zone in this game too, but I'm feeling pretty good after seeing this on UMHoops:

"Northwestern switched its defense to a matchup zone in a mid-season act of desperation last year, but Chris Collins has gone back to strictly man-to-man. Synergy Sports has logged 534 plays of man defense and 3 plays of zone defense."

As pointed out above, NW has only played 3 possessions of zone this year. Maybe they break it out today but that doesn't seem likely.

Also a minor point but Kopp starts over Gaines despite Gaines playing a lot more minutes.

I feel like 60 is the magic number. If Michigan can get above that number Northwestern is in trouble because it is hard to envision them scoring anything higher than that. It feels like a Northwestern win is a 57-55 sludgefart type of a game.

If Northwestern turns the ball over and misses a bunch of long twos its not going to matter what kind of D they play because Michigan will run them out of the gym.

less dunking on the MEAC, but still some [Marc-Gregor Campredon]

The most recent Ken Pomeroy podcast had a brief discussion of the Big Ten's 20-game conference schedule, which got a thumbs down because Pomeroy prefers nonconference games. Nonconference games connect various conferences and are required for ranking systems to make sense, so Pomeroy's got a point.

But what kind of games are being excised by the expanded conference schedule? I looked at everyone's schedules this year and last and divided them into approximate major and non-major categories. There's some wobble in these distinctions. The A-10, Mountain West, and Big East count. Certain programs (Gonzaga and the top of the American) outside of the top 7 conferences also count. I ended up grudgingly including DePaul because they're in a major conference but left out some incidentally top 100 opponents like Montana and South Dakota State on the assumption that these were buy games that were accidentally good opponents. FWIW, if you were to do it the other way and drop out programs like Pitt while including good mid- and low-majors the number of games worth playing would remain essentially equal.

Anyway, the conclusion is that the extra conferences games have almost universally replaced bad buy games:

  2018 2019
  Major-ish Mid-low Major-ish Mid-low
Michigan 5 (LSU, VCU, UNC, UCLA, Texas) 8 5 (Nova, GW, Providence, UNC, SoCar) 6
MSU 5 (Duke, UNC, ND, DePaul, UConn) 8 5 (KU, UCLA, Texas, Florida, Louisville 6
Wisconsin 6 (Xavier, BU, UCLA, UVA, Temple, Marq) 7 6 (Xavier, Stanford, OK, UVA, NCST, Marq) 5
Nebraska 4 (St John's, BC, Creighton, Kansas) 9 5 (Seton Hall, TTech, Clemson, Creighton, OkieSt) 6
OSU 5(Gonzaga, Stan, Butler, Clemson, UNC) 8 4 (Cinci, Creighton, Cuse, UCLA) 7
Indiana 4 (Seton Hall, Duke, UL, ND) 8 5(Marq, Ark, Duke, UL, Butler) 6
Maryland 4(Butler, Bonnies, UNM, Cuse) 9 2(UVA, Seton Hall) 9
Purdue 5(Marq, Tenn, AZ, UL, Butler) 8 5 (Davidson, FSU, VT, Texas, ND) 6
PSU 4(NCST, GW, Pitt, A&M) 9 4(DePaul, VT, NCST, Bama) 7
Northwestern 6(Creighton, La Salle, TTech, GT, DePaul, OK) 7 6(Fresno, La Salle, UT, GT, DePaul, OK) 5
Minnesota 4(Prov, Bama, Miami, Ark) 9 5(Utah, A&M, UW, BC, OkieSt) 6
Illinois 5( DePaul, Wake, UNLV, NMSU, Mizzou) 8 7(GTown, Zags, ISU, Xavier, ND, UNLV, Mizzou) 4
Rutgers 2 (FSU, Seton Hall) 11 3(St John's, Miami, Seton Hall) 7
Iowa 3(VT, ISU, CU) 9 4(Oregon, UConn, Pitt, ISU) 7
    118   87

There are 28 fewer slots for mid- to low-major buy games and 31 fewer mid-to-low-major matchups. Only two teams (OSU and Maryland) are playing fewer major opponents this year.

There's an argument that the increased slate of conference games reduces opportunities for teams like Bucknell, which was three points away from a win at Maryland last year, to establish their tournament bonafides. That may be happening to some degree but teams like Bucknell, Marshall, Belmont, Wright State, Loyola-Chicago, and Bradley still speckle Big Ten schedules.

It's undeniable that most of the games that aren't being played as a result of the 20-game schedule aren't really worth playing.

I think it just puts a lot of importance being in a quality early season tournament. Maryland was in a shitty one this year so they didn't get a good slate of teams.

I was listening to the podcast last night and had the same thought. My thought was to look at non-con SOS this year compared to previous years for B1G teams and see how the numbers look. Are they stagnant, lower or higher? If teams have much harder non-con SOS's, then it looks like we're just cutting out the body bag games and vice-versa. This is a good way of proving that point now.

Side note: I really don't like Pomeroy's co-host for the pod. He doesn't provide anything of substance and is just a yes man who agrees with whatever Pomeroy says.

So this anti-sec model of more conference games and fewer cupcakes will cause conference opponents to have more end of season losses. Does that hurt our record for tournament seeds i.e quad 3 v 2, or can/will rankings like kenpom account for this?

While wins against worthless teams are seen as just that, if Iowa/Wisconsin  have an extra 4 losses from the increased B1G schedule, does that bump them out of a quality quadrant win for Michigan?

I'm always in favor of more accurate rankings within a conference, which I think is accomplished by a more conference heavy schedule.

To me it seems that more conference play will provide for a better conference tournament both in terms of team preparation and proper seeding, which in term is better preparation for the national tournament.

While it's good that strength of schedule isn't being hurt, a team's record will be hurt. Those two games were usually two wins for almost every Big Ten team. Now, there's 14 more losses to be spread across the conference because there is a loser in each conference game.

Now, hopefully, the analytics give the Big Ten teams the benefit of the doubt because of the strength of schedule, but losses are never good in analytics either.

Not necessarily the case.  True, NET is sort of a fancified RPI that is based on W/L, but stuff like KenPom actually doesn't care an iota about the outcome of a game.  Only performance relative to the opponent.  Losing good is better than winning bad.  Reason being that NET is trying to quantify a team's results, while KenPom is trying to be predictive.

NET and RPI have a reward component for beating Coppin State by 1 and a ding component for losing to Duke by 1.  Other analytics, KenPom specifically, would ding you for the former and reward you for the latter.  Simplistically speaking.

It also makes the conference race a bit more equitable.  Now we play seven teams twice and six once, which is still far from perfect but an improvement over the ridiculous situation the last few years (when we had five double-plays and eight single-plays), leading to situations like MSU's last year where they beat one tournament team in league play and still won the title.

A 22-game schedule (nine double-plays and four single-plays) would be better still.

-------------------------------

The Question:

Why is this team exceeding expectations?

Ace: Just wait until Jordan Poole gets goin— oh, I see.

Seth: 1/1 Charles Mathewses agree: this is not a good development.

Ace: We can start with the obvious: Michigan had one of the best defenses in the country last year, upgraded on that end at the four and five spots (and arguably the two as well), and also moved into year two of Luke Yaklich’s teachings taking hold. Now it’s the best defense in the country by a significant margin so far this year.

This is very much Zavier Simpson’s team. Matthews’, too.

BiSB: To the defensive question, we didn't know if Iggy could play defense. Turns out... yeah, very much so.

Brian: His first real test is "hey, check Eric Paschall with zero help defense" and that goes spectacularly.

Seth: Let's not leave out 7'2" Zavier Simpson.

BiSB: Big Trogdor?

Ace: I meant in terms of temperament. Jon Teske is clearly one of the main reasons this team is so good. He’s a defensive savant. It’s not just that he can block shots, he’s almost never in the wrong place, his hands are great, and he moves surprisingly well.

BiSB: His foul rate is also insanely low.

Brian: Michigan's two point D is stunning and it is most stunning when The Big Sleep is on the floor. 31%!

Ace: (pulls out bullhorn)

AND HE HITS THREES NOW!

[After THE JUMP: Florida gets mentioned once. Also Duke.]

--------------------------------------

Brian: He challenges everything without fouling, his hands are disruptive, he's able to check guys he absolutely should not be able to on the perimeter. Here's an excellent breakdown of Michigan's offensive performance against Purdue featuring a billion drives past switched bigs.

That does not happen to Teske, like, ever.

Ace: I was going to post the other excellent breakdown video that hit Twitter in which Beilein’s adjustments are shown.

 

Teske’s ability to pop out and hit outside shots is going to be huge. It was last weekend.

Also that video is hoops geek porn.

Seth: I can't state how much I loved that tweet. I feel like I became basketball smart in 280 characters.

Brian: It changes the game further. Also we should not neglect Teske's paint screening ability. The opening bucket against the Boilers was Michigan action that got Iggy an unbalanced defender he drove past, but the 7'3" windmill wasn't able to get to the hoop because Teske felt what was coming and moved to box him out.

BiSB: Simpson uses that seal once or twice a game.

Seth: To bring the Teske bit back to the question: This was our HOPE not our expectation for him right?

Ace: He’s the perfect center for this team, no disrespect to Moe Wagner. This team is downhill oriented in a way none of Beilein’s teams have been previously. Teske makes a real impact on both the initial screen and that tricky rescreen he’ll bust out. Simpson needs that, and it sure helps Matthews/Iggy get to the rack too.

I had very high Teske expectations and I’d say he’s still exceeding them.

BiSB: Imagine you brought You-From-2016 to the future and showed him this team.

Ace: Like, right after the Maverick Morgan game.

BiSB: I would probably wonder how John Beilein was doing in the NBA.

Ace: I’d be legit dead.

Not that I'm trying to steal your job, Tom [Fuller]

Brian: I spent much of last year saying Michigan wouldn't take a step back without Wagner. There's evidence and everything:

By the end of the season Michigan's offense was actually slightly better with Teske on the floor after February 1st. EFG, TO rate, and various other factors remained static; FT rate dropped a lot and OREB rate rose a lot. That's about 300 possessions—five games worth—against top 100 opponents. It's not nearly enough to declare anything but it certainly suggests that Michigan's offense can survive in the post-Moe era. It'll get tougher without Wagner since teams will be gameplanning for Teske and not focusing so much on pick and pop, but that's what team-wide offseason improvement is for.

If the rest of the team can pick up the usage slack, Michigan won't miss Wagner much. Moderately large "if."

But even my absurdly optimistic self was way short.

Ace: The defense honestly hasn’t surprised me as much as the offense? I thought it would take longer for things to click. This is kinda what I expected the final form to look like.

Brian: Yes. This was a D that was #3 last year shedding Duncan Robinson and Wagner and getting their three best players back. The offense was a much bigger concern.

Ace: Iggy being insta-awesome changed the outlook a lot.

BiSB: The pick and roll game has been the best since, what, Stauskas? Morris?

Ace: Stauskas. Dude rained threes off of those. Wait. Let’s not discount Walton/Wagner. Unless we’re eliminating pops.

Brian: Well when's the last time Michigan had a point guard who was healthy and experienced? Late Walton was great but he was not right for a lot of his career and before that Michigan couldn't get a guy to his junior year.

Ace: Simpson sees the floor as well as any Beilein PG since Morris.

Brian: 13 A, 2 TO vs UNC and Purdue.

Ace: It makes you wonder what Trey Burke’s A:TO would’ve looked like as an upperclassman.

Alex: I thought the ball-screen game last year with Wagner was better because the latter was so good at reading the defense and adjusting - slips, pops, and rolls.

Brian: I think Teske's just as good but in more subtle ways. He's a large reason that Michigan's able to get to the rack so consistently with no one providing help.

BiSB: And to Ace's earlier point, there are still Thanksgiving leftovers in the back of the fridge. This clicked EARLY.

BiSB: Debbie Downer Caveat: there's the potential for some recency bias on the shooting stuff. They shot like Sparty against a 2-3 zone for the first couple of games, on stuff that was pretty opponent-independent.

Brian: I don't think they're a 43% team like they've been since but neither are they a 20% team or anything like it. Zone is the looming question though that's correct.

Alex: I think people generally expected that Teske would be an adequate—if very different—replacement for Wagner. Matthews has gotten better, Simpson has gotten better, Poole is still adjusting but he's just played two great games against good teams and when he's hot Michigan is unstoppable.

BiSB: It's hard to see Charles Matthews shooting 50% from deep, just like it was hard to envision Jordan Poole shooting like 8% with a billion turnovers.

Alex: This may not be a 37% shooting team from three but it's not gonna be < 33% like some of us (read: me) feared.

Seth: I wonder if Charles Matthews has found his stroke. He's not going to be 50% but I like him so much more now that he takes and makes threes in rhythm instead of driving on them.

Ace: I don’t think Matthews is gonna be much more than a ~33% shooter from deep but he doesn’t need to be better than that. He’s at 29% right now.

Brian: He's hitting 69% from the line since the 0/5 start. I think there might be something to that. He can get to 33-35 maybe. His FTs improved a little last year too. I think he's leveling up as a shooter, slowly.

Ace: Obligatory “nice.”

Alex: Just needs to hit open shots.

And first in hair. [Marc-Gregor Campredon]

Alex: As for why this team is exceeding expectations, the single biggest reason to me is Iggy. He's Michigan's leading scorer and legitimately a good defender. Had we known he'd be this good this fast - say, if he were a top 5 recruit - the expectations would have been much higher.

He's fourth in Kenpom B1G POY right now, by the way.

Brian: And... he is, right? If you re-rank his class right now he's top 5. For college anyway.

Alex: Top 5 best college freshmen, sure.

Ace: Maybe not for NBA purposes but certainly for college, yeah.

Alex: To your point on the podcast, not the 5th best prospect but he's 20 and dominating high-major college hoops on both ends.

image

[Campredon]

Alex: Livers has been quiet these last few games but he's 50% from three and a very good backup center. Not sure if anyone saw either of those things coming. Beilein even drew up a few looks for him against Purdue (one at the end of the first half comes to mind) and those were plays designed for a Duncan Robinson-type shooter. If Livers can be that and play three positions well defensively...

Brian: He really really wanted to take that three, which is nice to see.

BiSB: He's also getting to some of those shots that he seems unusually efficient at, like the lane fadeaway.

Ace: He also drilled a corner three over a closeout against UNC on a shot he never would’ve attempted last year.

BiSB: And the turnovers are down, too.

Seth: When is the last time Michigan had a sixth man of the year candidate?

BiSB: Last year?

Ace: …last year.

Alex: I think Robinson won it.

Brian: Livers's versatility is another excellent bonus. He makes the seven man rotation go because you can bring him in at any of three spots, and he can defend it.

BiSB: Over JJJ, even.

Brian: His usage has ticked up a couple of percentage points and he's chipping in D stats along with the shooting. I don't think he's going to be a guy who attacks the basket much but as a swiss army three-and-D guy he's great.

Ace: That versatility runs across the whole lineup and that’s huge when, at least for now, they’re running out a seven-man rotation. Livers can play three spots, Matthews can play (or at least defend) three spots, Poole can cover two (or even three), Eli Brooks plays both guard spots…

BiSB: Another nice part about Michigan's low foul rate is that Beilein gets to pick and choose his spots more with Livers at the 5. He hasn't had his hand forced often.

Alex: Livers does all the little things on both ends too.

Ace: It’s a seven-man rotation that functions like it’s got nine or ten guys, except the back end is still the good players.

Brian: Yes.

Ace: And not, say, Ben Carters.

Alex: I think Austin Davis probably deserves to play but with Livers doing so well in that role, he might not be playing a whole lot unless Teske is in foul trouble.

BiSB: I'm a liiiiiiittle concerned about Big Man depth...

Alex: Which... it's really remarkable that Teske doesn't foul much given that he's contesting everything and going for steals.

Seth: I don't think we should have expected Castleton to be contributing in the 2018 portion of this season.

Ace: Davis should be fine, and if he’s not, they can cover for that with Livers and potentially emergences from Brandon Johns and/or Colin Castleton. Beilein’s had plenty of freshmen break into the rotation late.

Brian: Davis seemed fine in small bursts last year. He's probably all right. Ward went right at him late in the first half at MSU last year and he defended that just fine.

Michigan's played a lot of teams where Livers makes more sense than Davis as the backup 5: Nova, UNC, and Purdue all feature small-ball Cs for large minutes.

slackbot: stupid ginger

Ace: Other things that can click into place:

  • The patented late-season freshman emergence (Castleton, perhaps?)
  • Poole playing every week like last week
  • More effective offense from the small ball lineup
  • Teske pounding the offensive glass like last year

BiSB: So... I mean... are there ANY concerns?

Alex: Davis is probably a perfectly fine replacement-level backup big.

Ace: Free throws.

Brian: Zone offense.

Alex: Bad three-point luck. I really don't think I'm crazy for thinking that this is a 30-win team.

Ace: I don’t think you are, either.

Alex: They're #1 in two-point defense. #1 in preventing free throws. #17 in preventing threes. Your floor is so high when that's the case.

BiSB: KenPom has them as a 26-5 team before any postseason stuff. Sooooo...

Ace: They’re up to a 27-4 projection on Torvik and are favored in every. single. game.

Brian: Kenpom still has more pessimistic preseason numbers baked in, too.

Ace: That’s the crazy thing! This team was in the 20s-30s everywhere preseason.

Seth: It's nice that the Big Ten proved itself a top three conference in the nonconf portion. You can take 4-5 losses in conference and be a 1 seed still as long as UNC and Nova don't turn out to be bad.

slackbot: stupid ginger

Ace: And we seemed to be the only people who thought that was batshit.

Alex: My biggest concern is depth. If one of the main seven gets hurt, you're playing guys who are very clearly not ready.

Ace: MSU: preseason Big Ten favorite, everywhere.

Brian: I think someone will emerge over the next month or two, probably DDJ.

Alex: He's surely getting hazed by Z every day in practice.

Ace: I feel like he gets blocked by Brooks. I honestly think every other freshman has a more obvious fit into the rotation.

Brian: God, being a freshman Beilein PG against Z has to be a private hell.

Alex: Get ready for the BTN Journey piece about how Z molded him into a killer when he wins the B1G POY in a few years.

Ace: That part I don’t doubt.

BiSB: But with a little twitch that say, "no for real I still wake up screaming about that guy"

Alex: None of the freshmen besides Iggy have looked anywhere near equipped to handle a five-minute stint in a high leverage situation.

Ace: I wouldn’t sleep on Adrien Nunez. Team could still use a shooting boost and the one thing they don’t have is a backup two who’s not really a PG. It’s still way early, Alex.

BiSB: Johns looks bouncy

Alex: The end-of-the-bench blowout variety hour has been so disappointing!

Ace: I don’t think any of them were expecting to see the floor against, say, Villanova.

BiSB: Castleton's usage is 47%. Just wanted to mention that.

Alex: That was intended to be tongue-in-cheek

Brian: Most of those minutes are against weird junk zones and I don't think mean too much.

At the open practice it felt like Johns and DDJ were the guys who were getting you might play attention, FWIW.

Alex: Yes it's the clumsiest basketball this side of the IM Building but even though those guys are all highly touted, I would be surprised if they didn't have major growing pains if forced into action.

Brian: The reason I push DDJ is that if Michigan does get stymied by some zones I want the off the dribble three shooter. But the points against him are good ones.

Ace: I’m less worried about zones because this team can shoot okay on spot-ups, they’ve got multiple great drivers, they move the ball well, and they have several players who could operate out of the middle of a 2-3. That Matthews FT-line game would be a killer.

Brian: This is me trying to patch a stress fracture in an aircraft carrier, I admit.

BiSB: Iowa has finally been playing more zone.

Alex: As for potential 2-3 issues, shooting is always a concern there. But like Ace said, there are guys who can play well in the middle. Teske and Livers come to mind.

Ace: It’s hard to dial back the optimism right now, I know.

Alex: Not many 7-footers out there who are more inclined to pass than shoot.

BiSB:

image

Ace: Also: Beilein is a wizard. People forget that. Somehow.

Brian: Michigan did do better against zones vs Providence.

Alex: I think Z's work on offense has been broadly underrated.

BiSB: When wild optimism is the most reasonable level of expectation, I get nervous.

Ace: It’s ever harder when last year’s team is used as a point of comparison.

Alex: He's the second-best distributor in the Big Ten behind Winston and he's not turning it over a whole lot. Has a good sense of when Michigan needs to push the ball following a bad shot or turnover. And like y'all have said, his work in the ball-screen game has been strong.

Seth: Z and Teske are two of the best defenders in the league AND they don't turn it over.

Ace: That should be emphasized, especially since both also somehow manage to avoid getting into foul trouble despite being so active. There’s so little margin for error already against this team and then they never give you the ball in the open floor. UNC never got to run.

Alex: Michigan's well-coached on that end obviously but Z, Matthews, Teske is a hell of a core to build around if you want to have a good defense.

BiSB: No regular rotation player is above 3.1 FC/40 minutes

Brian: Yeah, that's another thing that makes me optimistic. Some of their tougher opponents are very fast and that just doesn't work against Michigan. MSU, Iowa, and Indiana are all around 50th in offensive tempo.

Seth: Or very three-reliant.

Alex: Nothing works against Michigan.

Ace: Seeing a team that leans on transition offense is like when we saw teams that relied on press defense. It’s gonna be a murder.

slackbot: image

Alex: Unless a team somehow goes 10-18 from three or something—but there would have to be a lot of tough makes there.

BiSB: Maybe trash-talking Michigan will help. Rattle them, ya know?

Ace: I feel like I remember every open three-point look they’ve given up this year.

Seth: Most of them were against Purdue's short bald guy?

Ace: Yeah, it’s shocking each time.

Brian: oblig

image

[Campredon]

Alex: Feel like many / most have come off of offensive rebounds - which, that happens.

Brian: Cline got some open ones on missed rotations, but they were so heavily on Edwards that'll happen. I like that Michigan can go from a no help D to a heavy help D.

Ace: Teske got a little too deep into the paint once or twice against balding stretch big, but that’ll happen too, and he didn’t make them pay. The no help D strategy is great. Everyone except the point guard can contest shots at the rim even after getting beat by a half-step. Meanwhile, drive-and-kick isn’t an option. There have been so many instances of guys getting caught under the hoop with no good option.

Brian: Should I mention that I think recent rule changes have made officiating much more predictable and less infuriating? Like, the verticality stuff is great. Guys aren't getting called for the O initiating contact nearly as much.

Ace: I’ve really enjoyed that the changes have come in tandem with Michigan going for more blocks and fewer charges.

BiSB: "Hook and Hold" stuff has gotten headlines, but that's overshadowed a general reasonableness that seems to have taken hold.

Brian: The charge stuff was good and necessary. Hook and hold is being misapplied; it's supposed to be about trying to bait a foul call and instead it's getting called on everything.

Alex: It’s just mind-boggling that Michigan can play this good of defense without fouling much. Like Z gets away with a lot, but otherwise it’s a lot of just staying in front and staying vertical.

Ace: Excellent individual defense across the board.

BiSB: I've been a little disappointed with some on-ball defender blocking calls. Guys in legal guarding position getting plowed in the chest.

Seth: The Iggy one is the only one that stood out, and it was so bad Dicky V was mad.

Alex: Also, a fun game is to rank Michigan’s best defenders: Teske, Z, Matthews, Livers, Iggy, Poole, Brooks? Everybody on that list is good!

Ace: That’d be my order. Brooks is the only one I get even a little concerned about. Biggest concern: analysts have started really talking up Yaklich.

Alex: And the median player is extremely good in whichever order you want to put them in.

Brian: Any order for the top three is defensible really.

Seth: In a "normal" Beilein year Poole might be #1.

Ace: They got bounced from the tournament two years ago because they couldn’t stop any isolations and didn’t have anyone they could insert to stop them.

Brian: God that Oregon game. A different world.

image

[Campredon]

Alex: There was one play against the sad frenchman that really stood out to me. He was wide open on the roll and the guard found him. Going in for an easy dunk right? Then all of a sudden, JORDAN POOLE OUT OF NOWHERE CONTESTING ABOVE THE RIM AND NOT FOULING.

Brian: Poole also leapt out of nowhere to force Edwards into a tough fall-away. I admit that I was concerned about Poole's attention to detail hampering the D but that does not appear to be the case. This was based on nothing other than his outgoing charm, and is soundly defeated.

Ace: I think with Poole sometimes we assume his off-court goofiness will carry over to the court but he’s locked in.

Seth: A man with a baby-carrier looks adorably sweet until you threaten the thing in the baby-carrier.

Alex: For me I thought that it was more that players who fit his archetype usually don’t defend. Turns out that he does.

Ace: THIS MAN BESMIRCHED YOUR CAT, JORDAN.

Brian: That's an area where I think intangibles exist. There are teams on which Poole is a bad defender. They are teams without Zavier Simpson.

Seth: Conversely if Yaklich had been around when Stauskas was here...?

BiSB: So moving back to the front of the line, Teske guarding Nassir Little on the perimeter puts him at the top for me right now.

Alex: I’m old enough to remember when Michigan’s bigs would reflexively assume the charge position on a drive instead of putting their hands up. It’s a whole new world now.

Ace: That and “Jon Teske mirrors Nassir Little and forces a badly contested brick”… yeah.

Alex: I can’t imagine telling 2014 me that Michigan basketball would be the type of program where you won’t play unless you can really really defend.

Ace: Yeah, you don’t get to slack off when everyone else is playing their asses off. I wouldn’t want to cross X or Matthews.

Brian: The defensive coordinator idea was a good one and Beilein executed it perfectly. Found a small school doing work on D, interviewed some guy he'd never heard of for hours, hired him.

Alex: Turns out that Beilein found a reflection of his past self but instead of that guy being a detail-obsessed offensive savant, he’s a detail-obsessed defensive savant.

Yep.

They’re even both former high school history teachers, which is great.

Brian: i wonder if Beilein keeps trying to adopt Yaklich and he says "I am an adult"

Alex: I’d listen to a 45-minute pod of them discussing Antietam or some such shit.

Brian: lol

Ace: Needs to get rid of the damn-near-a-bowl-cut to stop Beilein from doing that.

Seth: "I'm not your Hadrian, John!"

Ace: But I trust any basketball coach who looks like he cuts his own hair on the way to the arena to watch film.

BiSB: We may have to prepare the Money Cannon if this keeps up.

Ace: Like I said, biggest concern.

Brian: I'd coach-in-waiting him if it would help.

BiSB: "EVERYBODY GUARD SOMEONE"

Alex: Maybe it would be best for us in the long run if he got a head coaching job this offseason, proved he could run a functional offense on his own, and then was ready for us post-Beilein.

Seth: Of all the Brazdeikis facts they toss around in the 30 minutes of every game this year that's been blowout time, the one that still shocks me the most is he looked at schools that played defense and that's how Michigan came up.

Alex: This team is so good that I’m willing to interpret bad things as potentially good things.

Brian: I'm perfectly content hanging on to him for another five years and not interviewing anyone else.

Ace: But I want four straight national titles, Alex.

Alex: This team could win one.

Ace: This is a squad so good it’d be reasonable to be disappointed if they missed the Final Four except that it’s a kinda random single-elimination tournament.

Alex: Seriously. I feel like I generally lean towards pessimism but my only gripe is that they didn’t annihilate Holy Cross by enough or whatever.

BiSB: Hard to lose if the opponent is down 17 in the final possession, tho.

Ace: I want three banners, minimum.

Seth: I want Duke.

BiSB: So... no one wants to talk about playing Florida again?

Kinda surprised Brian is so deep into the coach in waiting idea. I don't think that's fair to Yaklich. When Beilein was out, it was Saadi that took over responsibility as head coach. If the current trajectory continues, when Beilein retires Michigan could be in a very good position to be the best job out there and a top 10 job overall. I can't see a program of that level settling for a young coach in waiting without interviewing anyone else. I think it'd be best for Yaklich future as Michigan's head coach if he left and proved he could be the head man, as Alex mentioned.

Yeah as much as it would suck to lose Yaklich, it'd be better to see him go after a few years to get data on him as a head coach before committing to him as Michigan's coach. He wouldn't be easy to replace but Beilein made a good hire in Donlon as his first DC, lost him after 1 year and made a better hire in Yaklich. Assuming Yaklich gives some input when he leaves, I'm confident we'd be able to find a suitable replacement at DC. Not Yaklich level, but close to it.

Whenever Beilein does retire, which will be a dark dark day, it'd be nice if Yaklich had left and had some success elsewhere. That way we'd have our choice between Jordan, Yaklich, Pat Beilein, or whatever other upcoming coaching is available (Chris Beard type of guy). As amazing as Beilein has been, the state of the program he leaves behind will only serve to further his legacy at Michigan.

When a guy has proven to be one of the top 3 defensive coaches (maybe even the top?) in all of college basketball and is the primary reason for M so vastly exceeding expectations the past two years AND has shown good recruiting chops, you absolutely, 100% want to lock him up if you can.

His ceiling is limitless and his floor is very high because even if his offenses took a step back, his defenses will be good enough to keep the team at a top 25 level.  His floor is probably Beilein pre-Yaklich. And even if he doesn't have the chops to keep the offense elite, he'd be smart enough to hire an "OC".  Yaklich as HC, Patrick Beilein as OC.

When you're not a top tier blue blood basketball factory, that's the perfect guy to lock up.  A potential HOF'r that is (somewhat) homegrown.  I hate to make the comparison but he could be Michigan's Tom Izzo.

I don't have much trust in Beilein assistants prior to 2016ish.  The offenses of those teams were all Beilein, of course, and the defenses were terrible.  Considering how bad Bacari Alexander was as a HC, it seems like those guys were around for recruiting purposes only.  Mayyybe LaVall Jordan turns out to be ok as a HC, but he was bad his one year in Milwaukee (albeit in a bad situation but he certainly didn't Chris Holtmann that job), and he's not off to a great start in year 2 (the post Wile E Coyote year) at Butler.  His ceiling is probably much lower than Yaklich's.

          You Should Be Worrying about the Woman Shortage      Cache   Translate Page      

Women hold children's' hands as they wait to cross a street after school in downtown Shanghai September 12, 2014.

© 2014 Reuters

This month we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. To mark the occasion, we have asked Human Rights Watch experts to reflect on some of the key human rights challenges in their area of specialty.

In the 80s and 90s, Newsweek Magazine delivered US women the cheery news that they were more likely to be killed by a terrorist than to find a husband after age 40. There were too many women—supposedly—and not enough men, and women were the losers. And, of course, staying single was a horrible fate.

The World Health Organization says the natural sex ratio at birth is about 105 boys to every 100 girls and its best to have equal numbers of men and women in a society. You need a few extra boys for balance, because men die earlier.

We are learning right now what happens when the sex ratio becomes wildly out of whack, through a huge unintended experiment. In the world’s two most populated countries—China and India—there is a serious woman shortage.

For example, for several decades in China, the most populated country in the world, sex ratios at birth have been much higher than 105, sometimes exceeding 120 boys for every 100 girls.  Many parts of India, the second most populated country, have also, for decades, had a sex ratio at birth significantly higher than 105. The consequence is that in those countries combined—which together have a population of about 2.73 billion—there are now an estimated 80 million extra men. “Nothing like this has happened in human history,” the Washington Post wrote in an April 2018 article.

In India, many families used sex-selective abortion to choose boys, prompting the passage of a law that made it illegal to screen for the sex of the fetus and conduct sex-selective abortions. In China, similar decisions were encouraged by the “one-child” policy in place from 1979 to 2015, which prompted many parents to decide that their sole child must be a boy.  

The common thread is gender discrimination—from garden-variety sexism to practical concerns about sons being more likely to financially support parents in old age and provide grandchildren, while daughters are expected to live with their in-laws—which is hardly unique to China and India. When women lack equal rights and patriarchy is deeply engrained, it is no surprise that parents choose to not to have daughters.

But there are consequences. For example, China now has a huge, and growing, gender gap among the generations most likely to be seeking a spouse—a bride shortage. Experts project that many of the extra men will never marry; others may go to extreme measures to do so.

The woman shortage is having harmful consequences in China and sometimes in neighboring countries. Human Rights Watch looked at one of those consequences for a report forthcoming in 2019 focused on bride-trafficking from Myanmar to China. In Myanmar’s Kachin and northern Shan states, bordering China, long-standing conflict escalated in recent years, displacing over 100,000 people. Traffickers prey on vulnerable women and girls, offering jobs in, and transport to, China. Then they sell them, for around $3,000 to $13,000, to Chinese families struggling to find brides for their sons. Once purchased, women and girls are typically locked in a room and raped repeatedly, with the goal of getting them pregnant quickly so they can provide a baby for the family. After giving birth, some are allowed to escape—but forced to leave their children behind.

There is evidence of similar patterns of bride migration and trafficking in Cambodia, North Korea, and Vietnam, and more may emerge from other countries bordering China. Importing women doesn’t solve the shortage—it spreads it.

Trafficking is only one consequence. The woman shortage has also been linked to other forms of violence against women. Other consequences include social instability, labor market distortions, and economic shifts.

There is irony here. When there are too many women, women lose. When there are too few women … women again lose. But the truth is we all lose. We know that skewed sex ratios are already having harmful consequences and we do not fully understand what other long-term consequences there may be for societies affected by these disparities.

China ended the “one-child” policy but continued restricting reproductive rights through a new “two-child” policy. It has banned sex-selective abortion. But such prohibitions are often both ineffective and a threat to women’s rights to access abortion and make their own reproductive choices.

China, India, and other affected countries need to act urgently to mitigate the effects of the woman shortage. They should carefully examine the consequences of the woman shortage, including links to trafficking and other forms of violence against women. More importantly, they need to do much more to tackle the fundamental cause of the demographic imbalance—gender discrimination and the distaste for daughters that it breeds.


          The Stranger Solves a Murder at a Techies's Mansion in Sand Point      Cache   Translate Page      
We cracked the code, saved the day, and wished we had a view like that. by Nathalie Graham
Who killed The Count??
Who killed The Count?? Nathalie Graham

Where: Sand Point
When: Friday, November 30

The Uber couldn't go any further. It dumped The Stranger in the middle of a dark, narrow road. We clutched our coat close and strode cautiously forward, our heels clicking on the wet pavement. The Count was expecting us.

The drive opened up to reveal a mansion. We walked through a curved Hobbit-hole-like archway. The property sat squat on Lake Washington. Someone—we're not saying us—would kill for a view of Kirkland like that.

"They live here?" someone nearby whispered.

"I'm pretty sure that's a hot tub," said another.

We knocked on the big, wood door. It swung open. A man in a tuxedo bowed to us, "Welcome to my home. I'm the Count." He asked us to take off our shoes. Ritzy.

It was a murder mystery party. Everyone was dressed elegantly. One girl, who confused "formal" with "costume" on the invitation, was dressed as Kiki from that Miyazaki movie. The Stranger crafted our own character. We were a divorceé loosely based on Indiana Jones. Write what you know, right? We channeled the animosity of our divorced parents. Method acting.

We gathered in a living room with high ceilings and windows that took up entire walls. There were three floors, from what we could tell. An upper and lower balcony and a dock that could suit at least three boats. Seven men in their twenties shared this place. All of them worked in computer science. We strode past a closet that was left ajar. There was a bed in there.

"Is this set up for the mystery?" we asked.

"Nah," someone responded. "I think that's someone's room. I heard their rent is $500."

"I built everything I own," said the man whose character was a tech worker, "my company, my wealth, my girlfriend." That girlfriend was an AI. She laid down on the ground, eyes closed. She was charging.

During the Count's welcome toast—"He's gonna die," the girl next to me singsonged—the lights shut off, people screamed, and when the power came back he was spread-eagle on the floor.

"Is someone a doctor?" cried the butler.

"I have a Ph.D.!" yelled the college professor in the red turtleneck.

"He's dead. Nobody leaves until we figure out who did this," the butler said firmly. The rest of the characters milled about, some filled up their champagne flutes, others topped off their wine glasses. We set down our questionable mixture of Tito's vodka and Martinelli's sparkling apple cider.

The Stranger didn't realize how much we'd like a murder mystery, but we really liked the murder mystery. We ventured out onto the deck despite the rain in search of clues—"Think Gatsby's green light," the previous one had read. Two men in the sunroom sat drinking. "To moist socks," they cheered and clinked glasses.

Our character's ex-husband (our real-life boyfriend) was, admittedly, better than we were at solving clues. We quizzed characters while he cracked a safe's code. Inside, there was a will.

We inquired about a dog portrait resting against the mantle. "Ah yes, that's Scooby, the Count's late dog," responded the butler.

"To Scooby!" The two men still in the sunroom echoed. "Rest in power!"

We raced into the garage and saw trays of printed QR codes. Wow, we thought, the attention to detail is insane. When we asked one of the hosts about it he looked puzzled "QR codes?" he asked. Then he broke character, "Oh, that's just some shit my roommate does." At the end, after two wills, and a lot of alcohol, the AI was found to be the killer. That seemed about right, the party agreed.

Then we all raised our glasses. "To Jeff Bezos killing us all!"

After the mystery was solved our boyfriend showed us a notification on his phone. George H.W. Bush had kicked the bucket.

"Huh," our boyfriend said. "Poetic."

One of the drunker girls nodded. Then shouted, "Alexa! Play Avicii!"

          TEACHER CORNER | Practicing positive discipline      Cache   Translate Page      

by Maricris V. Albo

Quoting the famous Indian Independence leader Mahatma Gandhi, “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.” Simply, it means retaliation or revenge shall not bring any benefit and deeply cause division and harm.

Correlating it to Child Discipline, the quote also has a significant bearing. Basically, there are two (2) types of Child Discipline; one is the negative punishment were a child is being reprimanded when he or she has done something wrong. But, as time passed a positive one came into existence wherein children are being rewarded for doing something good and eradicating violence when the child has done something wrong but instead focusing more on counseling and advice-giving.

In a country like the Philippines where family-oriented values are deeply embedded, it has been common for parents to use the punishment system. Parents or guardians have several ways of punishing their child but the most popular and dominant is the whipping. The most commonly used object are slippers, piece of wood and belt. For some parents and guardians, they think that the best way for their children to learn from their mistakes is through enduring physical and emotional pain.

But studies suggest that there is a tendency for children who constantly receive punishment to be violent when they grow up. They may have the false narrative that they should seek revenge because they were constantly hurt by their parents and guardians. It could also be detrimental to parents and children relationships as feelings may sway apart causing hostility among children and parents. Exposure to violence can also bring harm to others as children may think that they experience is just normal and they may do it to other students or worse- to their teachers and authorities.

Also, children who grew from punishment usually have a low self-esteem, low self- respect and poor academic performance in school or even become worst parent themselves when they grow up.

Unlike punishment, positive discipline focuses more on values re-orientation. A calm approach toward children who misbehaved. Positive discipline works on the principle that there are no good or bad children, just good or bad behaviors. Parents and guardians let their children realize that what they did was not right. Positive Discipline teaches them lessons in handling problem in a calm and non-aggressive way. Some of the best benefits of Positive Discipline and better parent-child relationship and better recognition of positive values by children.

The government also took steps in order to minimize violence and child abuse among Filipino households. Known as the Republic Act no. 7610 or the "Special Protection of Children against Abuse, Exploitation and Discrimination Act." It provides special protection to children from all forms of abuse, neglect, cruelty exploitation and discrimination and other conditions, prejudicial their development; provide sanctions for their commission and carry out a program for prevention and deterrence of and crisis intervention in situations of child abuse, exploitation and discrimination. Also a proposed Bill known as Anti-Corporal Punishment Act of 2010, prohibiting all Corporal Punishment and all other forms of humiliating or degrading punishment of children and promoting Positive and Non-violent Discipline of children is in the Senate for approval as a law.

The children of today are more expressive, they want to be disciplined but not punish or hurt.  Parents, guardians as well as teachers should adopt the Non-punitive Discipline or Positive Discipline. Their vital role is to guide their children to become productive citizen of the future. It is important for a child, even in his young age, to understand whatever mistake done should not be repeated. Let all children feel that the love, respect and acceptance that they truly deserve from custody and days to come.

          Bravo and Braithwaite return to ODI Squad      Cache   Translate Page      

DHAKA, Bangladesh- The Selection Panel of Cricket West Indies has named a 15-member squad to play Bangladesh in three (3) One Day Internationals on December 9,11,14 in Bangladesh.

The selection sees the return of Darren Bravo to the ODI squad, along with T20 skipper Carlos Brathwaite and Roston Chase. Recent debutants, Fabian Allen, Chandrapaul Hemraj and Oshane Thomas retain their places following the ODI series against India last month.

Due to the absence of regular Captain Jason Holder, CWI’s Board of Directors has approved Rovman Powell as interim Captain, as the WINDIES seek to reverse the recent 2-1 home series defeat in July 2018.

Chairman of Selectors Courtney Browne said, “With two more ODI Series before the 2019 World Cup, the Bangladesh series allows us to narrow our search for our final 15-member World Cup squad. In the absence of captain Jason Holder, the panel believes the team can still be competitive, especially with the return of Darren Bravo. Darren’s experience will add value to the batting, which in turn will place selection pressure for spots in the squad. The selection panel therefore takes this opportunity to wish the team much success in Bangladesh.”

The full team is as follows:

Rovman Powell (Captain), Marlon Samuels, Devendra Bishoo, Roston Chase
Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Darren Bravo
Shai Hope, Carlos Brathwaite, . Keemo Paul
Kieran Powell, Fabian Allen, Kemar Roach,
Sunil Ambris, Oshane Thomas


          Johnson’s return to Windies team is in his hands      Cache   Translate Page      

"Chairman of selectors Courtney Brown’s team is embarrassing West Indian fans and its time for him to go, while the Foreign Coaches are doing nothing for the team and there are enough great former players who understand the West Indian culture and are good enough be appointed Head Coach by CWI."

At 31, Leon Johnson will know that time is running out on his hopes off adding to the nine Test matches he has played.
The Guyanese left-hander from GCC, the oldest Cricket club in the West Indies, has led Guyana to every First Class title since Barbados won its last one in 2014 and with four consecutive titles to his name he is widely regarded as the best Captain in the Region.

But the former West Indies U-19 Captain will also know that while he is the best candidate for the job as Windies Captain, he must first earn his place in the team with plenty of runs in the 2018/2019 Regional First-Class which bowls off on Thursday.

Kraigg Braithwaite has lost all four of the Test matches since he took over the Captaincy from fellow Bajan Jason Holder who lost 15 off the 27 Tests he has been leading West Indies since 2015.
Braithwaith’s batting Average has dipped to 35.22 and he has not passed 13 in his last his four matches; against India and Bangladesh.
Under the combination of Holder and Braithwaite, Windies have only won seven matches and two series (against Zimbabwe & Bangladesh) in 12 series and four years.
As Johnson gets ready to play his 100th First Class match since making his debut in 2004 against the Leewards at Enmore on Thursday in St Lucia, he will not be only thinking of replacing Braithwaite as Captain but of reproducing the form he showed in the 2016 Regional season.

Johnson lasted played Test cricket in November 2016, scored the most runs (807) from 10 matches with an average of 57.6 with two centuries and five fifties in the 2016 domestic season.

          India signs two MoUs, one on currency swap with UAE      Cache   Translate Page      
Raveesh Kumar, the official spokesperson for the ministry of external affairs on Tuesday tweeted about signing of two agreements.

The two MoUs (Memorandum of Understanding) were signed during the visit of Sushma Swaraj, External Affairs Minister to UAE. One of the Memorandum is on development cooperation in Africa while the other is a currency swap agreement with United Arab Emirates.

Swaraj, who arrived in Dubai on Monday on a two-day visit, was received by the foreign minister of the UAE ahead of the UAE-India Joint Commission meeting.

Thanks to the currency swap, traders in the two countries can exchange with their local currencies. This will thereby reduce the need for a third benchmark currency like the US dollar.

India and UAE's bilateral trade is valued at $50 billion annually. In fact, UAE is India's sixth-largest source for oil imports and hosts a 3.3 million-strong Indian community.

India's exports to UAE (according to Commerce Ministry data for 2017-18) is estimated at $28.14 billion (9.27% of total exports). India has a diverse export basket. This includes fresh fruits, agricultural products, Shrimps, prawns, motor engines, reciprocating pistons and even ball point pens.

India imports basically comprises of crude oil. Imports according to commerce ministry data (2017-18) stands at $ 21.73 billion. This is 4.6% of India's total imports. India's import basket with the UAE includes Liquefied Natural Gas, Petroleum oils obtained from bituminous minerals, and Liquefied Propane.

The currency swap could help ease traders and companies engaged in the import-export of crude oil with UAE.

Further details are awaited to confirm the product categories and also the value of the currency swap.

India and Japan signed a currency swap last month during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Japan. The currency swap with Japan valued at $75 billion.

          Gauri Lankesh case: Sanatan Sanstha denies SIT's allegations      Cache   Translate Page      

Bengaluru: The Sanatan Sanstha on Tuesday rubbished the Special Investigation Team's (SIT) allegations in connection with Gauri Lankesh murder case.

The Hindu right-wing group also vehemently denied the SIT's allegation that the book 'Kshatradharma Sadhana' published by the Sanatan Sanstha inspired the journalist's killing.

Sanatan Sanstha spokesperson Chetan Rajhans said, "Will the CBI and Karnataka SIT, which are ridiculously claiming that Gauri Lankesh was killed by reading some holy text of Sanatan Sanstha dare to explain which holy texts are read by Jihadis who are spreading terrorism in the entire world, before committing such horrendous crimes?"

Rajhans said that the efforts made by the SIT "reflects how low the investigating agencies can stoop to implicate Sanatan Santha."

"SIT displayed illegal behaviour by unlawfully arresting innocent devout Hindus, persecuting them inhumanely and denying them the judicial assistance. Similarly, a false information was spread that the accused were in possession of a 'hitlist'. When nothing came out of it, one of accused in the case, Parashuram Waghmore was lured with Rs 25 lakh if agreed to name Sanatan Sanstha," alleged Rajhans.

He further questioned, "If SIT claims that Gauri Lankesh was killed by reading holy text of Sanatan, will they explain on which holy texts jihadi terrorism and Naxalism are based for killing lakhs of people?"

The SIT, probing the killing of Gauri Lankesh, on November 24 named Sanatan Sanstha in its additional charge sheet filed before a city court. The SIT also said that the 18 accused in the case are active members of an organised crime syndicate.

According to the SIT, the members of the syndicate strictly followed the guidelines and principles mentioned in the book 'Kshatradharma Sadhana'.

Gauri Lankesh, a senior journalist was murdered in her residence in Bengaluru on September 5 last year.

          Four held in connection with cop killing, family alleges conspiracy      Cache   Translate Page      

Lucknow: Four persons have been arrested in connection with the killing of a police inspector in Bulandshahr yesterday in a mob violence over suspected cow slaughter, even as his family alleged conspiracy since the slain cop was investigating a lynching case.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath expressed grief over the killing of Inspector Subodh Kumar and promised a speedy investigation into the matter, which has triggered a major outrage and political bickering.

The state government on Tuesday ordered a probe by a Special Investigation Team (SIT), headed by an Inspector General of Police (IGP), to probe all aspects related to the incident.

Subodh Kumar was killed in the violence took place after the carcasses of 25 cattle were found in the forests close to a police post, with the locals alleging that those belonged to cows slaughtered illegally.

A local youth was also killed in the violence.

"Four people have been arrested. I don't know about the organizations (responsible for the violence) yet, but the main accused in the violence is Yogesh Raj who has not been arrested till now," Additional Director General (Law & Order) Anand Kumar said while addressing a press conference.

According to sources, post mortem conducted on Subodh Kumar confirms gunshot injury by .32 mm bore bullet on his head.

Additional DG (Meerut Zone) Prashant Kumar said an SIT has been formed under IG Range Meerut.

He said the SIT will probe different aspects, such as how the incident occurred, why the mob got violent, how many people were there with the Inspector and whether anyone flee from the spot. "Action will be taken if any laxity is found," Prashant Kumar said.

Police have lodged two FIRs, one into the alleged cattle slaughter and the other into the violent protests which followed.

At least 27 people have been named by the police in the FIR into the violent protests, It also mentions 60 unnamed people allegedly involved in the violence, the police said.

A bullet has been recovered from the body of local youth Sumit, who also died in the violence yesterday, Anand Kumar said.

The final post-mortem report will ascertain the bore of the bullet, the ADG added.

ADG (Intelligence) SP Shirodkar visited the violence-hit area on Tuesday and said "We'll submit a report tomorrow evening."

Meanwhile, Subodh Kumar's sister Saroj Singh Chauhan alleged a conspiracy behind the killing of her brother.

"My brother has been killed because he was investigating the Akhlaq murder case. This is a conspiracy," she told ANI.

Akhlaq was lynched by a mob in Dadri area of Uttar Pradesh in September 2015 over suspicion of cow slaughter.

"Why was my brother alone in his vehicle? Police are complacent in its role in the incident," Saroj charged.

The police vehicle in which Subodh Kumar was killed was charred in the incident.

Targeting Yogi Adityanath, Saroj Chauhan said, "What is this 'gai-gai' (cow protection) our Chief Minister keeps uttering all the time? Why doesn't he come onto the ground and serve the cause of cow protection? Today, I have lost my brother because of a cow!"

She demanded that her brother be declared a martyr and a memorial be built for him since he died in the line of duty.

"What good is the 50,000 or 50 lakh rupees for us? We will return it. We want a martyr memorial in our village. I need nothing except honour for my brother," she added.

She informed that the deceased cop's father too was a policeman and had died in a similar incident when he was shot dead.

The slain cop's wife said justice would be done only when his killers are killed.

"He worked with complete honesty and took all the responsibility on himself. This is not the first incident. He suffered bullet injury twice before. But now nobody is giving him justice. Justice will be done only if his killers are killed," the wailing wife said.

Governor Ram Naik described yesterday's incident as condemnable and said the Chief Minister has ordered a probe.

"Whatever may be the reason, such incidents can't be allowed," he added.

"I hope the truth will be out in 2 days as he (CM) said strict action will be taken against those who committed this crime," Naik said.

The Opposition parties used the incident to slam the Yogi Adityanath-led government.

"It's a shocking state of affairs how a mob killed a police officer investigating the Akhlaq case," Congress leader Kapil Sibal said.

Attacking the UP Chief Minister, the former union minister said, "Instead of taking care of his state, Yogi is going to Telangana and spewing venom."

BSP leader and former UP Chief Minister Mayawati alleged that there was "jungle raj" in the state.

Senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, on the other hand, alleged that there could be Congress party's hand in the Bulandshahr violence.

"This incident occurred because of some miscreants. We will find out whether they were Congressmen who are trying to give a bad name to Uttar Pradesh chief Minister Adirtyanath Yogi government or something else," Dr Subramanian Swamy told ANI.

Reacting to the Congress party's allegations that "Uttar Pradesh is burning and Yogi is busy in campaigning", Swamy said, "Wasn't India burning during 1984 anti-Sikh riots? In fact, nothing has brought us as bad a name as the genocide of 1984. What about thousands of innocent people who were put in jail without any trial during the emergency?"

          Say Anil Ambani ki Jai-Nirav Modi ki Jai, instead of Bharat Mata ki jai: Rahul to PM Modi      Cache   Translate Page      

Alwar [Rajasthan]: Drawing a direct fight between the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the poll-bound state of Rajasthan, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should chant names of businessmen and absconding defaulters of the country, instead of 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai'.

While addressing a public rally in Vijaynagar district, Gandhi said: "Narendra Modi should no longer say 'Bharat Mata ki jai'. Instead, he should say 'Anil Ambani ki jai, Nirav Modi ki jai'." Taking a further jibe at the Prime Minister, he said, "If you talk of Bharat Mata then how can you forget about our farmers?"

He further took a dig at the Prime Minister saying that "India's richest industrialists invested and marketed Modi. They made him the Prime Minister and now Modi is paying their dues".

With no holds barred, the Congress president said: "Farmers have been given Rs 45,000 crore for crop insurance. Of this, Rs 16,000 crore has been pocketed by Anil Ambani. These crop insurance was not for the farmers but to benefit Ambani."

In his attempt to reach out to maximum number of voters, Gandhi scion said: "Modi ji has ignored commonman's issues by lying to them. However, people of Rajasthan know better to stay from these lies."

He promised that if Congress comes to power in the state, he will pave a path of rapid development for villages, rural areas and Panchayats. The basic reform work for irrigation will speed up, he assured.

Touching upon the Rafale deal, he accused that Prime Minister Modi is silent over the issue because he is afraid that the truth of the matter will brand him a thief.

"Narendra Modi ji never mentions about Rafale deal in any of his speeches, he is afraid that if he speaks on this then people will shout 'chowkidar chor hai'," he said.

The single phase legislative assembly election is scheduled to be held on December 7. In the last elections in 2013, BJP had won a majority and Vasundhara Raje was given the position of Chief Minister of the state. Out of the total of 75.20 per cent voters who cast the ballot, BJP got 46 per cent votes while Congress only bagged 34 per cent.

          Mencengangkan, Ada 100 Wilayah di Otak yang Tak Pernah Terungkap      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Otak dikenal sebagai salah satu organ manusia yang sangat rumit. Dan pada kenyataannya, masih ada bagian otak yang belum terungkap.

Penelitian terkini menunjukkan adanya peta baru yang memiliki 100 area di otak. Area tersebut belum pernah dilaporkan dalam penelitian manapun sebelumnya.

Area baru itu sesungguhnya berkaitan dengan semua indera, gerak, dan beberapa fungsi lain, seperti pemecahan masalah dan mengatur emosi. Area ini dikenal sebagai korteks serebral yang letaknya di lapisan luar jaringan saraf otak.

Ukuran Variatif

Dikutip dari India Times, profesor neurosains dan psikologi Universitas Yale, David McCormick, menyontoh sederhana dari area otak ini, yaitu menganggapnya selembar pizza besar dan kardus yang melindunginya.

Kembali ke dalam otak, saat ini para ilmuwan sedang mengumpulkan data untuk membantu mengidentifikasikan area baru ini. Ketebalan cortex ini, misalnya, memiliki ukuran yang variatif.

Teknik FMRI

Di beberapa tempat, area ini memiliki ketebalan 1 milimeter dan yang lain, setebal 4,5 milimeter.

Saat ini, penelitian mengenai aliran sinyal ke otak menggunakan teknik FMRI. Teknik ini menggunakan citra dari aliran darah di otak dan menambahkan informasi mengenai isolasi lemak di area sekitar saraf otak.

Dengan metode ini, para peneliti dapat membagi otak manusia menjadi 180 area kortikal, termasuk 97 area yang baru ditemukan.

Salah satu daerah ini, misalnya, alur besar yang disebut POS2 yang tepat di depan korteks visual, merupakan bagian dari otak yang memungkinkan manusia untuk melihat.

Peta tersebut, sebagian besar berguna untuk upaya penelitian yang akan datang. Salah satunya artificial intelligence (AI) alias kecerdasan buatan.

          The Angle: “Insane Arrogance” Edition      Cache   Translate Page      

A martyr or an idiot? When missionary John Allen Chau was killed last month trying to make contact with an isolated tribe on a remote Indian island, writes Ruth Graham, public reaction was swift and judgmental: He’s been called an “asshole,” a “failed colonizer,” and an “American dickhead.” But Chau was acting out one of evangelical Christianity’s highest imperatives, so how have Christians responded?

Un-Goop: Like Gwyneth Paltrow, supermodel Chrissy Teigen has been busy building a lifestyle empire full of cookbooks, kitchen goods, and cosmetics. But, Shannon Palus explains, unlike the Goop universe, Teigen’s “Cravings” aren’t trying to sell a phony sense of “wellness.”

In the mood for love: Moonlight director Barry Jenkins does it again with the luminous, intimate If Beale Street Could Talk, the first English-language film adaptation of James Baldwin’s writing. Inkoo Kang says it “crackles with rage” at racial injustice—and is “one of the most distinctive love stories in recent memory.”

What took so long? Gregg Berhalter, the new coach of the U.S. men’s national soccer team, may be the right man for the job. He may even bring style and vision to a team that has severely lacked it. But the 418 days it took to hire him were a massive missed opportunity, according to Eric Betts.

For fun: Don’t give your loved ones the best. Give them these totally adequate gifts instead.

Humbly,

          Martyr or “American Dickhead”?      Cache   Translate Page      

In January 1956, five young American missionaries decided to make contact with a small tribe of natives in eastern Ecuador, with the purpose of converting them to Christianity. Instead, just a few days after their first direct contact with the group, they were speared to death on a secluded beach. News of the missionaries’ deaths spread quickly in the United States. Life magazine devoted a 10-page spread to the story of “five devout men who sought to bring the word of God to a fierce tribe of Stone Age savages.” The reverence for the missionaries went even deeper in Christian circles, where believers saw the men as martyrs killed for their faith.

Last month, a 26-year-old Christian missionary named John Allen Chau was killed on a remote Indian island in strikingly similar circumstances as the men in Ecuador.* Chau dreamed of converting the members of an isolated tribe on the North Sentinel Island, who are known to aggressively resist contact from outsiders. He attempted to prepare to do so, but he didn’t speak the language. At one point, he wrote to his mother, he approached a group of North Sentinelese from the water and “hollered: ‘My name is John, I love you and Jesus loves you.’ ” Chau was killed, apparently by bows and arrows, the next day on the beach.

The public reaction to Chau’s death has been much different than the response to the men in Ecuador 60 years ago. Mainstream media outlets have published opinion pieces accusing Chau of “cultural imperialism and insane arrogance,” for example; on social media, he’s been called an “asshole,” a “failed colonizer,” and an “American dickhead.” Many critics pointed out that Chau’s expedition was a violation of Indian law, which forbids outsiders to even approach the island. It was also an epidemiological risk to the North Sentinelese, who have not built up immunity to many common illnesses including the flu. And even if the North Sentinelese were not harmed by new germs, contact with outsiders could irreparably alter their lives and culture.

In traveling to an “unreached” people group, Chau was acting out one of evangelical Christianity’s highest imperatives—and most cherished narratives. “There’s a sense in evangelical and missionary circles that one of the highest things you can do is take the Gospel to a group who has never heard it,” said historian Kathryn Long, the author of a forthcoming book about the 1956 mission in Ecuador. For many evangelicals, this is the most dramatic version of fulfilling Jesus’ “Great Commission,” in which he told his followers to “go and make disciples of all nations.”

Intriguingly, however, even Christians have not hailed Chau as a clear-cut hero of the faith. “Chau’s stunt not only had absolutely no chance of success, it also stood to bring sickness and death to this tribe,” the conservative Christian writer Rod Dreher wrote last week. “How could any Christian justify this?” Dreher was among those pointing out that Chau’s death has prompted a regional backlash that could make life harder for the minority population of Christians in India, not to mention Christian aid workers and long-term missionaries there.

Part of the reason Chau’s story has prompted a backlash among both Christians and secular observers is because Chau seemed to approach the island with a cartoonish style of Western swagger. In his diary, parts of which have been made public by his family, he wrote of attempting to befriend the islanders with offerings of scissors and safety pins, and by singing Christian “worship songs.” “There’s been such a sea change in evangelical missiology over the past 50 years about the danger of cultural imperialism,” said Thomas Kidd, a historian at Baylor University who wrote a blog post about media reactions to Chau’s death.
“There’s much more sensitivity among evangelicals than there was at the time of [the missionaries in Ecuador’s] death.”

If Chau had been acting as a rogue agent, his missteps would be easier for Christians to dismiss as an aberration unrelated to traditional missionary work. That’s how it seemed when the story of his death first emerged: He had traveled to the island by himself, and it wasn’t clear whether he was affiliated with an agency with an expertise in the logistics and ethics of cross-cultural missionary work.

As it turns out, however, Chau had indeed received training and support from a number of American evangelical missions groups. One of them was All Nations, an interdenominational organization based in Missouri. “John Chau was not foolhardy,” Pam Arlund, a member of the international leadership team at All Nations, told me by email. “All Nations believes John was prepared to be able to contact the North Sentinelese well.” Chau approached the Kansas City–based agency about two years ago with a goal of visiting the island “to share the love of Jesus with them.” Arlund said that he had been working toward the project since he was 18, even selecting his major at Oral Roberts University (in health, exercise science, and sports medicine) with the trip in mind. He spent a summer in linguistics training with another well-established Christian organization, SIL International, to prepare to acquire the North Sentinelese language once he landed there. He also participated in an All Nations training program for potential missionaries and continued with an online “internship.”

All Nations had contact with Chau as recently as Oct. 18. In a recent interview with Christianity Today, another leader at All Nations described Chau as “thorough and meticulous in his preparation,” and said he had quarantined himself for a period of time before approaching the island to try to reduce the risk of disease transmission. Arlund said All Nations did not provide specific logistical advice on Chau’s mission but believed he was well prepared.

The apparent fact that Chau was not acting impulsively or independently will make his case more unsettling for many evangelicals. “There’s a high-wire act that evangelicals have to contend with,” said Kidd. “To outside observers, they’d say of course this is cultural imperialism, you’re imposing your culture. Evangelicals say, we can set aside culture and just boil it down to the Gospel.”

That’s an idea that would not have occurred to the five men in Ecuador, who have been the subject of hagiographic books and movies since their death, including the 2006 drama End of the Spear. (Attending an evangelical college in the late ’90s, I lived for two years in a dormitory named for one of the men.) Kathryn Long points out that the deaths in Ecuador came at a critical moment for evangelicals, as they were beginning to see themselves as a distinct cohort. The influential magazine Christianity Today was founded in 1956. Billy Graham’s evangelistic “crusade” took over Madison Square Garden for 16 weeks in 1957. At the time, the five missionaries “symbolized what evangelicals wanted to be,” Long said. Now, John Allen Chau may become a symbol of exactly the opposite.

Correction, Dec. 3, 2018: This post originally misstated when John Allen Chau died.

Besan toast
Besan bread toast or bread besan toast is a quick after school snack, evening snack to enjoy with tea, coffee. Full video recipe, step by step pictures to learn easily.
I love savory toasts like besan bread toast. In my childhood days, bread is only bought when we were sick, no idea why. So it's always plain toast mom makes or we have it as such when we were not well. Amma at times toasts with vengaya chutney (onion chutney) with ample amount of ghee and it tastes divine 😍. But these days Aj loves snacks prepared with bread. We make a lot of short cut sandwiches, toasts with leftovers at times too. Like chana masala sandwich, aloo paratha stuffing + cheese sandwich etc.

After trying sooji toast, besan toast was on my to try list. Finally tried the same way except for curd/ cream. It's basically like a low fat bread pakora, the batter being spiced up and fortified with some ingredients. I added onion, capsicum, tomato. You can also add vegetables like carrot or cabbage to make it more healthy.
Couple of things to remember, finely chop the veggies you add - grate or use food processor if you are not good at chopping that finely or you want the work done more easily. Besan should be more than the vegetables. Always make and have it hot.

Besan bread toast recipe

Recipe ingredients:

Bread slices - 6
Besan - 3/4 cup
Onion - 1/2
Capsicum, chopped - 2 tbsp
Tomato, chopped - 2 tbsp
Green chilli - 2
Coriander leaves, chopped - 4 tbsp
Asafoetida - a pinch (optional)
Ajwain / Cumin seeds- 1/4 tsp
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Salt - as needed
Oil/ ghee - as needed

Method:

  1. Finely chop onion, capsicum, deseeded tomato, green chilli, coriander leaves.
  2. In a mixing bowl, take besan and all chopped items. 
  3. Add salt, ajwain/ cumin, turmeric, asafoetida and mix well.
  4. Pour water little by little to make thick batter.
  5. Heat tawa, drizzle a tsp of oil. Spread the prepared batter as thin coating to the bread.
  6. Invert the bread carefully to the tawa so that batter spread side is down.
  7. Let it cook in medium flame while pressing gently with a spatula on top.
  8. Once the besan batter is cooked, spread the batter over the top side too. 
  9. Drizzle oil over and flip. Cook 30 more seconds or until the toast turns golden.

Notes

  • Cook in medium flame for good results.
  • recommend iron tawa/ pan or atleast heavy bottomed pan.
  • Do not make the batter too thick. 
  • You can also dip the bread slice instead of spreading. I prefer spreading as it is less messy.
  • Add shredded cabbage, carrot or even crumbled paneer to the batter for adding nutrition.
  • But besan should always be more.

நீதிக்கதை

ஒரு ஊரில் பத்து விவசாயிகள் இருந்தார்கள்.

ஓரு நாள் அவர்கள் தத்தம் நிலங்களில் உழவு வேலை செய்து கொண்டிருந்தார்கள். அப்பொழுது வானம் இருட்டிக் கொண்டு வந்தது. பயங்கர மின்னலுடன் இடி இடித்தது.
பயந்து போன அவர்கள் பக்கத்தில் இருந்த ஒரு பாழடைந்த மண்டபத்தில் ஓடி ஒளிந்து கொண்டனர்.

வெகுநேரமாகியும் மின்னல் வெட்டுவதும் இடி இடிப்பதும் நிற்கவில்லை. அவற்றின் உக்கிரம் வேறு அதிகரித்துக் கொண்டே போனது.
பயத்தில் நடுங்கிக் கொண்டிருந்த விவசாயிகளில் ஒருவன் 'நம்மிடையே ஒரு மகாபாவி இருக்கிறான். அவனைக் குறி வைத்துத்தான் கடவுள் இடியையும் மின்னலையும் ஏவியிருக்கிறார். அந்தப் பாவியை வெளியே அனுப்பிவிட்டால் மற்றவர்கள் பிழைத்துக்  கொள்ளலாம்' என்று சொன்னான்.

மற்றவர்கள் இதனை ஆமோதித்தார்கள்.

இத்தனை பேரில் அந்தப் பாவியை எப்படி அடையாளம் கண்டு கொள்வது என்று விவாதம் நடந்தது. விவாதத்தின் முடிவில் தீர்ப்பைக் கடவுளிடமே விட்டு விடுவது என்று முடிவாயிற்று. அதன் படி அனைவரும் தத்தம் தொப்பிகளைக் கையில் பிடித்துக் கொண்டு தொப்பியை மழையில் நீட்டுவது என்று முடிவாயிற்று.

அனைவரும் தத்தம் தொப்பிகளை மழையில் நீட்டினர்.

பயங்கரமான இடி முழக்கத்துடன் ஒரு மின்னல் வெட்டியது. அதில் ஒரு விவசாயியின் தொப்பி மட்டும் எரிந்து சாம்பலாகியது.

மற்ற ஒன்பது விவசாயிகளும் "இவன்தான் பாவி. இவனை முதலில் கழுத்தைப் பிடித்து வெளியே தள்ளு" என்று கத்திக் கொண்டே அவன் மேல் பாய்ந்தனர்.

அந்த விவசாயி கெஞ்சிக் கதறி தான் அப்பாவி என்று மன்றாடினான். மற்றவர் யாரும் காதில் போட்டுக் கொள்ளவில்லை. அவனை பலவந்தமாகக் கழுத்தைப் பிடித்து வெளியே தள்ளினர்.

அவன் கதறிக் கொண்டே மழையில் ஒடினான்.

அப்போது அதி உக்கிரமாக ஒரு மின்னல் தாக்கி இடி இடித்தது. ஒடிக்கொண்டிருந்த விவசாயி அதிர்ச்சியில் உறைந்து நின்று விட்டான். சற்று நேரத்தில் நிலைக்குத் திரும்பி மண்டபத்தைத் திரும்பிப் பார்த்தான்.

மண்டபத்தில் இடி விழுந்து நொறுங்கிக் கிடந்தது. ஒரு புண்ணியவானின் புண்ணிய பலத்தில் தப்பித்திருந்த ஒன்பது விவசாயிகளும் அவனை வெளியே தள்ளிப் பாதுகாப்பை இழந்து பரிதாபமாகக் கருகிச் செத்துப் போய் விட்டனர்.

          To Go Global, Netflix Sends U.S. Writers to Foreign Shores      Cache   Translate Page      
To Go Global, Netflix Sends U.S. Writers to Foreign Shores:

Netflix has a twin aim with these shows. It hopes the shows will both appeal to audiences in the countries that the shows are set, and made, and to viewers in other countries. As the company said in an investor letter last summer, “our international originals can be important to specific countries and regions and also play well outside of their home markets.”

With that in mind, Netflix has focused on making American-style serialized dramas likely to appeal to middle-class people willing to pay for a Netflix subscription—the kind of people used to international shows like “Game of Thrones.” That’s a very different audience than what traditional Indian television attracts. Radhika Gopal, an agent who represents writers and directors for Mumbai talent agency Tulsea, describes Indian TV as “primarily driven by soap operas, mythology, and pulp dramas in fiction, and (largely adapted international) talent show formats hosted/judged by popular feature film stars, directors, musicians, etc., in the non-fiction space.”

[…]

And Netflix isn’t alone in these efforts. Amazon Studios, which currently has 30 Indian original series in production, has for the past two years hosted an annual workshop in India for U.S.-based writers and producers to teach local writers television writing structure as well as tonality.

“They bring a few showrunners down, you get to sit and jam with them, if you have any ideas, they have any ideas. They’re there just to bring you another perspective and make sure that the [Indian showrunners] are equipped to reach a global audience,” says Karan Anshuman, who created two Hindi-language series, “Inside Edge” and “Mirzapur,” for the streaming platform.

HBO, which began ramping up production of Asian shows last year, has also sent U.S. writers to Asia to help out. Netflix, though, has more incentive for it to work. It is in more countries than any other subscription TV service.

நீதிக்கதை

ஒரு அறிஞர் ஆராய்ச்சி நூல் ஒன்று எழுதுவதற்காக அமைதியான இடத்தைத் தேடிக் கொண்டிருந்தார். அவர் அறியாமல், அரக்கர்கள் இருந்த பள்ளத்தாக்கை தன் இடமாகத் தேர்ந்தெடுத்தார். கோபமடைந்த ஒரு அரக்கன் அவரைப் பார்த்துக் கேட்டான்.

“”யார் நீ? இந்த அமைதியான பள்ளத்தாக்கை கெடுக்க வந்தாயா?” என்றான்.


“”தயவு செய்து என்னை மன்னித்து விடு. நான் ஒரு அறிஞன். அமைதியான இடத்தைத் தேடிக் கொண்டிருந்தேன். அதனால், இங்கு வந்தேன்!” என்றார்.

“”இதற்கு ஒரு விலை நீ கொடுக்க வேண்டும். நான் உன்னைக் குரங்காக மாற்றி விடுவேன். அதுதான் உனக்குத் தண்டனை!” என்று அந்த அரக்கன் கூறினான்.

அடுத்த கணம், அந்தக் அறிஞர் குரங்காக மாறிவிட்டார். அவர் விம்மி விம்மி அழுதார். ஒரு மரத்திலிருந்து மற்றொரு மரத்திற்குத் தாவிக் கொண்டிருந்தார். குரங்குகளைப் போல் பழங்களைத் தின்று வந்தார்.

அவர் நகரத்தை அடைந்தார். அங்கு ஒரு கப்பல் பாக்தாத் பட்டணத்திற்குப் புறப்பட இருந்தது. அவர் அதில் தாவி ஏறினார். அதிலிருந்த பயணிகள் கூச்சலிட ஆரம்பித்தனர்.

“”குரங்கை வெளியே அனுப்புங்கள்; கொன்றுவிடுங்கள்!” என்று கத்தினர்.
கப்பலின் தலைவன் அந்த விலங்கிற்காக வருத்தப்பட்டுச் சொன்னார்.

“”வேண்டாம். அதுவும் நம்முடன் வரட்டும். யாருக்கும் அது தொந்தரவு தராதவாறு நான் பார்த்துக் கொள்கிறேன்!”

அந்தக் குரங்கு கப்பல் தலைவனுக்கு நன்றி உடையவனாய் இருந்தது. பாக்தாத்தில் ஒரு செய்தி பரவி இருந்தது. அரசருக்கு ஆலோசனை கூறுபவர் இறந்துவிட்டதாகவும், அரசர் அந்த இடத்திற்குத் தகுந்த ஆளைத் தேர்ந்தெடுக்க விரும்புவதாகவும் அறிவித்திருந்தார். இப்பதவியை விரும்புவோர் ஏதேனும் ஒரு செய்தியைத் தகுந்த முறையில் எழுதி அனுப்பலாம். அவற்றுள் எது மிகவும் நன்றாக உள்ளதோ, அதை எழுதியவர் ஆலோசகராகத் தேர்ந்தெடுக்கப்படுவார் என்றும் அறிவிக்கப்பட்டது.

அந்தக் குரங்கு அறிஞரும் செய்தியை எழுதினார். அரசருடைய சேவகர்களும், மற்றவர்களும் நகைத்தனர். “”இங்கே வேடிக்கையைப் பார். இந்தக் குரங்கு அரசருக்கு ஆலோசகராகப் போகிறதாம்!” என்று கேலி செய்தனர். ஆனால், எல்லாச் செய்திகளும் அரசரிடம் எடுத்துச் செல்லப்பட்டன. அரசர் எல்லாவற்றையும் படித்தார். அந்தக் குரங்கின் செய்தி மிகவும் நன்றாக இருந்தது.

அந்தக் குரங்கை நேர்முகத் தேர்விற்காக அரசர் வரச் சொன்னார். அக்குரங்கு நல்ல கம்பீரமாக உடையணிந்து குதிரைமேல் ஏறி, பாக்தாத் தெருக்களில் ஊர்வலமாக வந்து அரசரைச் சந்தித்தது. அரசவையில் அதனிடம் நிறைய கேள்விகள் கேட்கப்பட்டன. அது எல்லாக் கேள்விகளுக்கும் அறிவுப்பூர்வமான சரியான விடைகளைக் கூறியது. அரசருக்கு அதை மிகவும் பிடித்து விட்டது. ஆனால், மந்திரிகள் தடுத்தனர்.

“”எப்போதும் அதனால் பேச முடியாது. எப்படி ஒரு குரங்கு தலைமை ஆலோசகர் ஆகமுடியும்?” என்றனர்.

அரசர் தீர்மானமாக இருந்ததால் அவர் குரங்கையே தலைமை ஆலோசகராக நியமித்தார். அவருடைய புதல்வி, இளவரசி இந்தக் குரங்கு உண்மையில் குரங்கு அன்று. ஏதோ அரக்கர்களின் மாயத்தால் இவ்வாறு மாற்றப்பட்டுள்ளது என்பதை அறிந்தாள். அரக்கர்கள், அவர்களின் மந்திர வித்தைகள் போன்றவற்றை அவள் படித்துள்ளாள். அந்த மந்திரத்தால் குரங்குத்தன்மை மாறும்படி செய்தாள். அறிஞர் தன் பழைய நிலையை அடைந்தார்.

அவர் இளவரசிக்கு நன்றி கூறினார். பல ஆண்டுகள் அங்குத் தங்கி நன்றியறிதலோடு அரசருக்குத் தகுந்த ஆலோசனைகளை வழங்கினார்.

*நீதி*: அறிவுடையோர் எவ்வுருவில் இருந்தாலும் மதிக்கப்படுவர்.

          YouTube’s Oldest Star, Indian Chef ‘Mastanamma’, Has Passed Away At 107      Cache   Translate Page      

One of YouTube’s oldest stars, Indian cooking host Mastanamma, has passed away at age 107.

Mastanamma, who had become something of a national treasure, headlined the Country Foods channel, which was launched by media entrepreneurs Srinath Reddy and Laxman Karre in Aug. 2016. (Mastanamma is Karre’s grandmother). Country Foods had stopped featuring Mastanamma in clips over the past six months, reports The News Minute, leading to speculation about her whereabouts.

Yesterday, Country Foods confirmed the sad news with live streams of Mastanamma's funeral ceremony and burial, where a collective 125,000 viewers tuned in to pay their respects. Country Foods counts 1.2 million subscribers -- more than double the 450,000 subs that the venture touted in June 2017, when YouTube highlighted Mastanamma during a presentation at VidCon. The channel's most popular video features a recipe for egg fried rice, which counts upwards of 15 million views.

          PewDiePie Battles Racist Fan Comments By Raising Money For Indian Child Rights Charity      Cache   Translate Page      

Top YouTuber PewDiePie, who’s currently in a hot and very popular contest with Indian record label T-Series for the most-subscribed channel on the platform, has started a GoFundMe to raise £150,000 ($190,938 U.S.) for Indian charity Child Rights and You (CRY). (Note: As of press time, CRY's website is down, apparently due to the flood of traffic PewDiePie is sending its way.)

In a new upload, PewDiePie (real name Felix Kjellberg) says he’s seen a growing number of people leaving racist comments on videos related to his waning -- though recently boosted by fellow YouTuber Markiplier -- subscriber lead over T-Series, particularly on 24/7 livestreams showing Kjellberg and T-Series’ subscriber counts in real-time.

“Sometimes in these comments, you see comments like ‘f-ck Indians,’ [...] just really distasteful, unnecessary comments,” he says. “And I obviously make Indian jokes and stuff like that, but I do that of all countries, and this is not what I’m about.”

PewDiePie's had the title of No. 1 channel on the world's largest video sharing site since August 2013, but he will soon relinquish it to the Noida, India-based music and film company despite a number of increasingly outrageous stunts hoping to keep Kjellberg on top. There's simply too many people in India and too many companies signing those people up for internet service to allow any other feasible outcome.

Still, it's fun to watch the race play out, and it's giving all the parties a lot of exposure. Kjellberg knows this and wants to do something altruistic with his Bro Army (half-jokingly comprised of mostly 9-year-olds) before the whole thing is over.

“I’m getting more attention now than I’ll probably ever get," Kjellberg says is in his video. "So why not just take that fact and redirect it to something more positive, and show that this fanbase [...] can do something positive as well, because I know we can. No more ‘f-ck India.’ Instead, let’s help India.”

          Porsche 917 returned to the track, the Maharajahs' Vauxhall and Bentley ...      Cache   Translate Page      
As we have entered the final month of 2018, it is time to start looking back at the many highlights of the year. One of the most spectacular was certainly this Porsche 917 K. Chassis 008 was originally one of the works cars and was raced at Le Mans in 1969, where it led for 18 hours. It was subsequently used for the famous test at Zeltweg where the Kurz or Short tail version of the 917 design was created with the help of the John Wyer Automotive team. Although it served as a Gulf JWA spare but it was not raced again and was eventually dismantled. The frame was later sold to Freisinger and built up to a complete car again. Not seen for many, many years, the rebuilt car finally resurfaced this year and was shown at the Le Mans Classic and raced at the more recent Imola Classic.
This weekend, Bonhams staged their annual flagship Bond Street Sale at the company's headquarters. Topped by the ex-Graf Albrecht von Goertz BMW 507, the results were disappointing. One car that more than lived up to the expectations was this Vauxhall 30/98 OE Velox Tourer. Originally sold to the Maharajah of Jammy and Kashmir, it now found a new owner for GBP 437,000, which was well above the top estimate.
Another car originally owned by Indian royalty currently available is this striking Bentley Speed Six Mulliner Sportsman's Saloon. Its first owner was the Maharajah of Jaipur and remained in India until 1937. In 2012, it was shown at Pebble Beach as part of a display of cars owned by Indian royalty, where it placed second in class and won two special awards. Chassis LR2778 is currently being offered by RM Sotheby's private treaty department.
          Our North and Middle Caicos Adventure      Cache   Translate Page      

-- by Mona Beeson, General Manager of The Sands at Grace Bay
A continuation of the Adventures of “Hartling Girls Empowered” ~ the exploration and sights of the Turks and Caicos Islands with GM, Mona Beeson and my special young teen friend from last year.

This year as with previous years, I had the wonderful opportunity to join in mentoring girls from the island at the Edward C. Gartland Youth Centre Summer Camp Program that took place at The Palms Resort called “Hartling Girls Empowered” – and, as an extension, to share a trip to North and Middle Caicos with a couple of these amazing girls – sisters in fact – along with Karen Whitt, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for The Hartling Group.

As you may remember in my post about last year’s trip, we are so enthusiastic about being able to share this experience that teaches these young ladies about their country’s heritage, history, and destinations facts firsthand. So we set our plans to paper and plotted out our course to explore an ambitious 10 sites in North and Middle Caicos, rounding out our day at famous Bambarra Beach for a swim and picnic lunch.

Map

The car was packed with our cooler, picnic basket, beach bags (filled with towels, sun screens, and insect repellent – all a must) and, of course, a very necessary road trip snack bag! We were ready for our adventure with an early 7:30 AM pick-up for Karen and the two girls, soon we were on our way to Heavin’ Down Rock in Leeward and Walkin Marina’s Caribbean Cruisin fast ferry to North Caicos. Easy and convenient, all in one place we also arranged our North Caicos rental car there too with Caribbean Cruisin. Now, it was all about just sharing in a great experience!

On the fast ferry from Walkin Marina, we passed picturesque mangrove-clad inlets as our vessel splashed against the colorful turquoise waters, passing Little Water Cay, Half Moon Bay, Water Cay, Pine Cay, Fort George, Dellis Cay, and the famous private Island of Parrot Cay. All of these glorious islands and cays looked so inviting and beautiful from the water.

Once we arrived in North Caicos, we loaded-up the rental SUV and set out to the first stop on our map, Wade’s Green Plantation.

While that day it was closed, we set out on a 3-mile hike around it to explore the nature paths and took a rest on the area’s convenient benches. Quick tip for anyone looking to visit on a Sunday – you should call in advance to arrange a special tour. All-in-all the hike was delightful and insightful as we saw many indigenous plants and birds, and splendid scenery. Naturally we took photos of our adventure -- a must for our memory books!

With our map out, we were on our way to Hollywood Beach via Pumpkin Bluff Pond. Having the SUV made for a fun off-the-road trek. Then we got back onto the main road to get to Hollywood Beach.

We met several potcakes once we arrived at Hollywood Beach, friendly dogs with wagging tails that headed right into the ocean for a dip. This beach and its four-legged visitors were fun to see. After a short walk, back on the road we went. We had to keep our schedule in order to end up at Bambarra Beach for lunch while also making it back in time for the last ferry to Provo…

The next stop on our adventure was Flamingo Pond. Up on a small hill, we proceeded to the lookout stage – any Flamingos out there?

This time we saw them only painted on the wall, but that didn’t stop us from taking some more selfies, and talking about the live pink flamingos we saw on the lookout stage during our last trip and in Grand Turk. Next it was time to hit the snack bag … and head on to the Causeway to Middle Caicos.

We passed through the little villages of Major Hill, and Bottle Creek on Kings Road enjoying the lush greenery and flowering trees. Once the Causeway came up, sparkling waters like glittering diamonds were all around. What a sight to behold, the colors of the water changed again. Simply amazing!

On Middle Caicos we turned left into the old Blue Horizon (now Dragon’s Cay Resort) to Mudjin Harbour. If you have never been here, this spot needs to be on your “life’s list” of places to see and experience. Imagine breathtaking bluffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean with some of the most stunning azure waters – it’s a definite must see!

Circle of Hope Prayer handsWe took in the views of not only the amazing bluffs, but also the two caves that are sure to stir the explorer in you at any age. The first pathway leads to a large cliff cave overlooking the Harbour. Another path leads to the sculpted bronze “Circle of Hope” prayer hands, dedicated to Dale Marie Witt. Picture time? Yes again! The higher level view – again amazing – will take your breath away (from both the hike up and the view).

Continuing on the pathway, we approached and saw mysterious stairs leading down to an underground cave.

It’s a place you are sure to think pirates must have hidden once upon a time. Maybe they did, maybe they didn’t, but the cave walls won’t tell…

 

This is a wondrous cave – though last year’s storm took out some of the honed stalactite tips, it is still magnificent to see.

With its mesmerizing nature and beauty, it is certainly well worth the drive for peace, serenity… and for some delicious conch fritters at Dragon Cay’s Bar & Grill. Oh, and they make a delicious frozen lemonade too…

A special request from Karen for the girls – definitely refreshing! The view from the top deck is spectacular. Friendly staff, good menu, and a killer view to boot.

Now that we had hour respite, we were on our way to the Indian Cave. It’s been a while since it’s been weeded, though we’ve seen the road workers making their way down.

As it turns out, we drove right past the Indian Cave, so we’ve decided to head on to Bambarra Beach – and catch it on our way back. On the way over we stopped by the airstrip to take pictures and then quickly got back on our way.

Signs pointed the way to Bambarra Beach. Were pleased to see the new leveled road and soon saw the brightly colored Tiki huts in bright lime green, yellow, and turquoise as well as gorgeous light green waters just beyond a small cay in our view.

You may be surprised to see some folks you know like we did in this lesser traversed area.

We saw our friends from Provo visiting not only at Mudjin Harbour, but also at Bambarra Beach as well. It’s always nice to see a friend you know with a welcome smile.

The long awaited time had come to get into the water! If you have not yet gotten to Bambarra Beach, it’s great to know that the water is not deep – you have to wade a long way out before it gets a just a little bit deeper which makes it perfect. Many times I wanted to go out all the way to the cay…This time, I was determined to make it happen so off we went! Mind you, it does take a little time to wade through the water and get to that point, but we made it! Adventuring all along the way, we found smooth sand dollars and picture-perfect little shells as mementos of our day trip. We made it to the beach of that little cay, left our mark by piling up some stones, and then headed back – our picnic was waiting to be savored.

With lunch bags set out and the cooler setup, we had a lovely picnic lunch of assorted sandwiches, Caesar chicken salad, fresh fruits, snacks, and dessert. Well worth the wait for a tasty lunch. After a bit of a rest, it was time to back into the SUV and head towards North Caicos and the ferry.

We had just enough time to circle back to Indian Cave.

Making our way through Middle Caicos, Karen and the girls spotted the little sign “Indian Cave,” of course we pulled over! Car parked, we put on plenty of insect repellent to ward off bugs ~ all the ready for cave exploring. With little rain these past few weeks, it made it comfortable inside this cave.

The pathway was a little overgrown but we know soon enough that will be cleared away.

We spotted some interesting sights on the pathway leading to the cave…

Rosary pea or crab’s eyes plant , cotton plants, banana spiders, interesting seed pods such as these called Nickernuts , and more.

 

 

 

Then, once we got inside the cave, all of the magnificent green colors and long hanging tree roots from the ceiling to the floor welcomed us.

You can feel the cooler temperatures and see the high vaulted ceilings, and understand why this was a safe refuge for the Taino Indians.

The girls of course we’re all taking pictures and selfies for our memory books. I got a picture of Karen peering through those awesome vines. Fun! But now it’s time to get back into the car and head to North Caicos so we can make the ferry on time!

Passing through the causeway at Middle Caicos we stopped again to take some more beautiful pictures of the shimmery green water, then quickly got back in the car as we waved hello to some more friends from Provo passing us. They were visiting family on the Island. A honk-honk, friendly wave and a hello and we were on our way!

We made it back to the North Caicos dock with 18 minutes to spare. It was just enough to load up onto the ferry. What an adventurous day we all had! We boarded the ferry and within minutes we were well on our way to Provo. On the ferry ride back to Provo we shared more time talking with friends, listening to upbeat TI music, while our minds were saving memories and reminiscing about our day – already we were starting to dream about what our next trip should be. Hmmm, we think it’s going to be Salt Cay.

Until then…see you next time!

Of course, not all Indians but geez a lot of Indians smell awful. It's not just spices, accumulated morning breathe, sweaty armpits, crusty dusty feet, then excess curry and other bad scent spices. The worst part, they walk around like they are better. They don't want to improve. When Africans smell, it's probably due to poverty and ignorance but once they are aware, they put effort into being clean. Congrats to this couple.

          New Mexico teacher won't return to school after 'bloody Indian' comment      Cache   Translate Page      

Officials say a teacher at an Albuquerque high school will no longer work for the school district after she was accused of calling one Native American student a "bloody Indian" and cutting the braid of another.

Albuquerque Public Schools spokeswoman Monica Armenta said the relationship between the district and Cibola High School teacher "was severed." Armenta wouldn't say whether the teacher resigned or was fired.

The statement followed calls from the Navajo Nation president for cultural sensitivity training within the schools as a result of the Oct. 31 incident.

Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye says the teacher's acts were part of a "Halloween stunt." He says one teen's parents told him it was traumatizing.

Armenta says the district's superintendent contacted the students' parents to tell them the employee would no longer teach at the school as of Friday.

          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. I made a call one late night in November. I made a connection, got some hope, and carried on. It’s powerful life saving work this organization does. In my roundabout way, I know this first hand.”

He also told the audience he will launch a multi-million dollar initiative in 2020, “Pose Gives Back,” to support and help elect pro-LGBTQ lawmakers.

He ended his speech announcing a $50,000 donation to The Trevor Project.

You can watch Murphy’s acceptance speech and announcement below from The Trevor Project’s livestream below. Mock introduces Murphy at the 124:00 mark.

 

The spectacular annual gala raises much needed funds to support The Trevor Project's mission to help LGBTQ teens in crisis.

Pose stars MJ Rodriguez and Billy Porter thrilled the gala audience with a reprise of their duet of “Home” from The Wiz. Watch below.

Isn’t that what happens with most of

          The Strangest Little Schools in Iowa      Cache   Translate Page      
I thought Florida had a monopoly for oddly-named high schools, but Iowa is a close second.

1. Denver-High School in Denver, near Cedar Rapids.  Named after the city in Colorado for no apparent reason.









2. Wapsie, a farming community on the banks of the Wapsipinicon River, near Cedar Rapids, no longer exists, but it's given its name to Wapsie Valley High School in Fairbank, Iowa.

Sounds like what you say when you drop something.












3.Williamsburg is not the colonial city in Virginia, but a small town on Interstate 80 between Iowa City and Des Moines, draws travelers with its outlet mall.  I've never been tempted, thanks.









But I might want to watch Williamsburg High School football training.
















4. Lake Mills High School in Lake Mills, which is nowhere near a lake with that name.  It is near the town of Northwood, with Diamond Jo's Casino and the Iowa Rest Stop, where I had a glimpse of supreme beauty a couple of years ago.














5.  Nearby Manly, one of my favorite adjectives. It's the site of this cute 100-year old Baptist church.















And some manly football players at Manly High.


6. Linn-Mar High sounds like a housing development.  It actually draws students from both Linn County and Marion. 










7. Moc-Floyd High School sounds like you're mocking a guy named Floyd.


















8. Riceville High School in Riceville, Iowa, population 502.  They don't actually grow rice in Iowa; it was named after the Rice Brothers.



















9. Adel DeSoto Minburn High in Ames sounds like the name of someone with a Hispanic and Scottish ancestry, but it actually draws students from three counties.  DeSoto is named after the conquistador.


10. Indianola High in Indianola, Iowa, south of Des Moines, was named after a town in Texas, which was named after "Indian" and "ola," the Spanish word for "wave."  Unfortunately, the -ola suffix in English is used for commercial products, like floor wax.

          Susan Delacourt: Are MPs the weak link when it comes to safeguarding Canada?      Cache   Translate Page      

All fingers are pointing at the RCMP for the security lapse in Justin Trudeau’s disastrous trip to India this year.

But it’s the “MP” part of the report’s findings that also deserves some closer scrutiny — specifically, whether individual members of Parliament are increasingly the weak links in Canada’s national-security chain.

If Canada is getting serious about the threat of foreign interference — and David Vigneault, the head of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service made that very clear in a rare speech on Tuesday in Toronto — it is also looking like MPs’ potential vulnerability should be climbing higher on the radar.

“In the interest of national security, members of the House of Commons and Senate should be briefed upon being sworn in and regularly thereafter on the risks of foreign interference and extremism in Canada,” says recommendation number one in the special report of the National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians (NSICOP.)

What makes that recommendation even more interesting — maybe even ironic — is that it was written with the help of Tony Clement, the former Conservative cabinet minister recently ousted from his caucus over a sexting scandal and shadowy extortion attempts against him.

“Tony Clement was a full and active member of NSICOP until he resigned on November 7, so he participated in all deliberations and contributed to the committee’s discussions and work up until that time, including on this special report,” said Rennie Marcoux, executive director of the committee, when I asked on Tuesday about how much the disgraced MP had contributed to the findings.

Let that sink in. Not only was Clement investigating foreign interference in Canadian politics this year, but he may well have been living it too. It’s like that old UPS commercial about consultants: “We don’t actually do what we propose; we just propose it.”

Most Canadians probably remember the prime minister’s India trip last February for his highly questionable wardrobe choices and terrible optics, but the committee’s report was prompted by something slightly more serious — specifically, the presence of a convicted attempted assassin, Jaspal Atwal, in the midst of events by the Canadian delegation while in India.

How did Atwal wrangle himself an invite to Trudeau’s over-the-top party? With a simple request to a member of Parliament — Surrey Centre MP Randeep Sarai, who later said he didn’t really “invite” Atwal; he merely forwarded his name to the powers that be in charge of the trip, who then rubber-stamped him. That’s how easy it was.

Now, it may be true that security forces dropped the ball when it came to vetting Atwal’s request to be part of the PM’s trip to India, but there’s a reason, we assume, that the number-one recommendation in the special report appears to pinpoint MPs as insufficiently aware of security risks from extremist elements abroad.

Too bad Raj Grewal, the newly independent MP for Brampton East, wasn’t part of this committee either. He might have learned that his now self-acknowledged gambling addiction made him vulnerable too.

According to a report by Canadian Press, Grewal’s gambling problem has been linked to an investigation into money laundering by foreign-based extremists. Here’s what CP reported:

“The source, who requested anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter, said Grewal’s debts came to the attention of the Ontario Provincial Police during an investigation of some ‘particularly shady guys’ who might be involved in laundering drug money destined for an extremist group in the Middle East.”

The Commons was in an uproar on Tuesday about what was left out of the committee’s special report — all the asterisks that have been inserted to blank out sensitive information. Much of those asterisks have to do with “foreign interference.”

But what if the big risk is hiding in plain sight — not just in this report, but in the cases of rogue MPs we’ve seen this fall?

What may be most disturbing about this week’s report is not the missing words, but the absence of information about how national-security lapses will be prevented in future. As the report notes, no one has gone to the trouble yet of having a cross-departmental study of “lessons learned” from the India trip.

One such lesson certainly revolves around how individual MPs could be viewed as portals into Canadian politics by foreign extremists. And is it enough merely to warn them of those threats, as this report recommends?

          Disabled Women Challenging Stereotypes      Cache   Translate Page      
Nelufar Hedayat unites two women with disabilities from Toronto and Mumbai, who are challenging misconceptions about their sexuality and what they’re capable of achieving. Maayan Ziv is a fashion photographer and entrepreneur from Toronto, Canada. She uses a wheelchair and became frustrated with the lack of information about accessibility of venues in her city. Having discovered early on that technology can alter the day to day life of disabled people all over the globe, she decided to develop an app. It is called AccessNow and uses crowd-sourcing technology to create an accessible map of a city. It's now operational in 35 countries around the world. Nidhi Goyal is an activist and comedian from Mumbai. At the age of 14 she began to lose her sight, which she maintains allowed her to ‘see more clearly’ the barriers that disabled people face. She is India’s first female disabled stand-up comedian, using humour to challenge the way people think about dating with disability and sexuality. She founded the non-profit Rising Flame which advocates for women with disabilities, and delivers disability and inclusion training to companies across India.

Bush Left A Troubling Legacy On Church-State Separation boston Tue, 12/04/2018 - 10:52
G Bush inaug

Political pundits are assessing the legacy of former President George H.W. Bush, who died on Friday. Like many people in public life, Bush had good points and bad points. But compared to the current flock of Republican leaders, it’s easy to eulogize him as a statesman and celebrate his calm demeanor and genteel manners.

I remember a somewhat different Bush – one who struggled to make peace with the Religious Right during the 1988 election and as a result, ended up moving farther to the right in pursuit of reckless policies.

Remember, Bush began his political career as a Republican moderate. As a member of the House of Representatives in the late 1960s, he was known for his interest in international population control, and he championed access to birth control. When he ran for president in 1980, Bush portrayed himself as a more moderate alternative to Ronald Reagan.

After serving as Reagan’s vice president for eight years, Bush ran for president again in 1988. He received a shock during the Iowa caucuses when he came in third behind U.S. Sen. Robert Dole (R-Kan.) and TV preacher Pat Robertson.

In the wake of the defeat, Bush, an Episcopalian, decided to move to the right and play up religion in an effort to win over skeptical far-right evangelicals. He began giving more talks about his faith and sometimes even used the phrase “born again” to describe his faith. He played up his support for school prayer and private school voucher plans. He named Dan Quayle, a U.S. senator from Indiana who was popular with the Religious Right, as his running mate.

Bush also began pushing generic forms of “God talk.” A speech he gave in Pontiac, Mich., in 1987 is typical. Bush, who had served as a fighter pilot during World War II, recalled being shot down over Japanese territory. “I know what sustained me,” he said. “It was faith, and it was family. And I believe in Jesus Christ as my personal savior.”

During the 1988 race, I contacted Bush’s campaign in an attempt to clarify where he stood on several church-state issues. I received a reply via fax: a position paper with some quotes from Bush’s speeches and writing.

The paper quoted Bush as saying, “I believe in the separation of church and state, and although government should remain neutral towards particular religions, it need not remain neutral towards traditional values that Americans support.”

The same position paper reiterated Bush’s support for tuition tax credits (a kind of voucher plan), which he insisted would “provide greater choice in education.” On creationism, Bush tried (awkwardly, in my view) to thread the needle: “I’m not a scientist, but it seems to me that the Bible has an abundance of clues and evidence to help archeologists, astronomers and other scientists in their endless quest for knowledge. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if the Biblical account of creation and the scientific evidence of the origins of the universe will yet find common ground.”

Once in office, Bush tossed some bones to the Religious Right. He met regularly with conservative religious leaders and would occasionally talk about school prayer. He issued the usual religious proclamations. His administration tried, unsuccessfully, to allot millions for vouchers in the Education Department’s budget.

In the summer of 1992, Bush unveiled the “G.I. Bill for Children,” a $500 million outlay of taxpayer money to fund voucher schemes nationwide. At the time, Bush was struggling in the polls against Bill Clinton, and the move was seen as a sop to voters. As a political ploy, it was a serious miscalculation. After Clinton won the election in November, the voucher proposal quickly disappeared.

Bush’s biggest impact on church-state separation was through the Supreme Court. He named David Souter to the high court in 1990 to replace Justice William Brennan, but Souter turned out to be much more moderate than the Religious Right expected and was a strong supporter of church-state separation. The following year when another seat opened up after the retirement of Justice Thurgood Marshall, Bush and his advisers made sure to pick an arch-conservative. That’s how Clarence Thomas got on the court.

Thomas, now 70 years old, is the longest-serving justice among those currently on the court. His views on church-state separation are extreme, and he has insisted that since Supreme Court justices are appointed for life, he has no intention of retiring.

Thomas stands as Bush’s real legacy on church-state separation. For that reason alone, it can’t be called a good one.

          I top brand cinesi trainano le vendite di smartphone      Cache   Translate Page      
Huawei smartphone

Nel terzo trimestre del 2018, i marchi cinesi Huawei e Xiaomi, hanno contribuito a far viaggiare le vendite globali di smartphone.

È quanto rileva Gartner nel report  “Market Share: PCs, Ultramobiles, Mobile Phones, All Countries, 3Q18 Update”. Nel complesso, le vendite di smartphone agli utenti finali sono cresciute dell’1,4% nel terzo trimestre del 2018. Raggiungendo 389 milioni di unità.

Mentre le vendite di smartphone rallentano per la maggior parte dei produttori di telefoni cellulari, Huawei ha visto la domanda di smartphone crescere del 43% nel terzo trimestre del 2018. Huawei rimane il primo marchio di smartphone in Cina (Greater China) e tra i primi tre in molti mercati europei.

Nel terzo trimestre del 2018, Samsung ha registrato il suo più grande calo da quando Gartner monitora le vendite di smartphone a livello globale. Le vendite di smartphone Samsung sono diminuite del 14% nel terzo trimestre. I Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+ e Note 9 hanno faticato a rivitalizzare la domanda nel 2018. Inoltre, i rinnovati smartphone mid ed entry-level hanno continuato a subire la concorrenza dei principali marchi cinesi.

Gartner smartphoneQuesti ultimi hanno incrementato la quota in mercati chiave, come l’India. E la loro espansione in regioni oltre l’Asia-Pacifico continua a sottrarre opportunità a Samsung.

La performance di Apple è stata stabile nel terzo trimestre del 2018, con una crescita dello 0,7%. Gli iPhone devono affrontare un mercato degli smartphone premium saturo, con tassi di crescita in rallentamento e maggiore concorrenza in Cina. È l’opinione di Anshul Gupta, research director di Gartner. Che ha anche aggiunto che i nuovi smartphone di punta di Apple, annunciati a settembre, saranno la chiave per definire le vendite complessive di iPhone nel 2018.

Il futuro: 5G e smartphone pieghevoli

Con le vendite globali di smartphone che decelerano in modo significativo, l’attenzione dei produttori di telefoni cellulari si sta spostando verso nuove tecnologie. Come il 5G e il form factor pieghevole. Ciò avviene per differenziare la user experience sugli smartphone e generare nuovo valore per gli utenti.

Secondo Roberta Cozza, research director di Gartner, il 2019 segnerà un anno importante per le attività di R&D e test su diverse tecnologie 5G. Tuttavia, sempre secondo Cozza, è improbabile che vedremo il 5G nei dispositivi mobili in volumi significativi prima del 2020. Gli analisti di Gartner prevedono che le vendite di telefoni cellulari 5G raggiungeranno 65 milioni di unità nel 2020.

Inoltre, Gartner si aspetta che diversi fornitori, come Samsung, Huawei e LG, lancino nuovi form factor pieghevoli nel 2019. Tuttavia, a parte l’interesse per la novità, secondo Roberta Cozza questi dispositivi saranno costosi e avranno compromessi nell’usabilità, all’inizio. Ci vorrà del tempo affinché vendor e sviluppatori costruiscano un forte ecosistema software che generi user experience efficaci e innovative sugli smartphone pieghevoli.

           Comment on Brexit as a bad career move by EugenR       Cache   Translate Page      
Dear Dipper, finally i understand how could more than 50% of the British vote for Brexit. People as you speak about dignity, historical role of G.B. that I'm not denying at all, while all the Brexit is about tariffs, regulations and norms, and similar boring stuff. There is no glory in merchandise border crossing policy. Glory is from wining war against regimes of evil, asthe Nazi regime, what hopefully is well behind us. In economy there is no vacuum. The Polish, Romanian and Czech waitresses will be replaced by emigrants from British colonies, namely Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, etc. not by the British. If you don't know about it, i will tell you, only in these countries are ready to move hundreds of millions of people to supplement the demand. With the East Europeans, you had chance, they will be as British as yourself in the next generation, if they stay. Do you have the same experience with the people from Africa and the subcontinent? The last, the EU is a first serious try to end with the continuous wars in Europe, that became more and more devastating. You are probably a decedent of fathers, who probably fought fiercely in the last two ones and for the right cause. By supporting Brexit, you are dishonouring their sacrifice.

The "reality" is that the invaders are pursuing complete conquest by any and all means. The barbarians are at the Tijuana gate. The "reality" is that American women were allowed to stop having babies. Americans are vanishing and America is vanishing. Ergo: Women in America have eliminated Americans and America. The question is will Americans allow the extinction of their population and nation. The American fertility rate is in a "death spiral." National suicide - a bizarre anthropological phenomenon.

          Comment on MLB realignment could result in a Phillies competitive nightmare by Schmolik      Cache   Translate Page      
I doubt they would drastically shake up the NL and AL. I think there needs to be more baseball teams in the south so I added Charlotte and Nashville. NL East: Phillies, Mets, Nationals, Pirates NL Central: Cubs, Cardinals, Brewers, Reds NL West: Dodgers, Giants, Padres, Diamondbacks NL South: Braves, Marlins, Rays, Charlotte AL East: Yankees, Red Sox, Orioles, Blue Jays AL Central: Indians, Tigers, White Sox, Twins AL West: Angels, A's, Mariners, Rockies AL South: Rangers, Astros, Royals, Nashville To me this is an almost perfectly geographically balanced setup. I wouldn't know where to put Portland or Montreal and I'm not a fan of either city being added (Portland is too far a trip from Philly and I can do without any more teams from Canada). I'd love to have the Pirates back in the NL East and the Pirates, Mets, and Nationals are the perfect NL East for the Phils with no long plane rides (as opposed to now, Atlanta and Miami).

Dec. 4, 2018 

University Distinguished Professor Anil Jain named Fellow by The World Academy of Sciences 

Anil Jain of Michigan State University has been named a Fellow of The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) for a lifetime of perspectives and publications that have inspired students and researchers worldwide. He was one of 46 new fellows elected at the 28th TWAS general meeting in Trieste, Italy, Nov. 27-29.University Distinguished Professor Anil Jain has been named a Fellow of The World Academy of Sciences for inspiring students and researchers worldwide. 

A University Distinguished Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, Jain is being honored for his pioneering contributions to pattern recognition resulting in novel solutions for a rapidly evolving biometrics industry. 

TWAS was founded 35 years ago to increase representation by women and researchers from the world's science- and technology-lagging countries. Jain said it is not typical to have a person from a developed nation be elected a fellow by the worldwide organization. 

Jain was nominated for the honor by Tieniu Tan of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), where he is a professor of computer vision and pattern recognition, CAS deputy secretary-general and director general of the CAS Bureau of International Cooperation. 

Tan called Jain an internationally renowned scholar and educator. “For the past 40 years, he has actively promoted the research topics of pattern recognition, computer vision and biometrics in developing nations through lectures, exchange programs, technical assistance and student and postdoc training. 

“Very few people get elected every year from North America,” he added. “He most certainly deserves the recognition.” 

Co-nominator Sankar Pal, distinguished scientist and former director of the Indian Statistical Institute in Kolkata, India, said Jain’s high quality pioneering research has had an enormous impact on statistical pattern recognition and computer vision.
