          Những kẻ giết người hàng loạt và bệnh tâm thần      Cache   Translate Page      
baomai.blogspot.com

Trong tiểu thuyết 'The Shining' của Stephen King, nhân vật Jack Torrance tượng trưng cho thể loại văn học ẩn dụ kinh dị nổi tiếng, một kẻ giết người điên cuồng không còn có thể phân biệt được giữa thực tế và ảo giác.

Trong khi Jack từ từ rơi vào điên loạn, hắn ta đã kết bạn với một số hồn ma sát nhân, là những thế lực cuối cùng đã thuyết phục được hắn giết vợ và con trai mình.

Độc giả có thể kết luận rằng Jack trở thành nạn nhân của quỷ dữ, thế lực siêu nhiên đã chiếm giữ cái khách sạn nổi tiếng được mô tả trong tác phẩm này.

baomai.blogspot.com  

Hoặc họ có thể diễn giải vòng xoáy suy sụp của hắn ta một cách rất khác: rằng Jack là một người bị bệnh tâm thần - có thể là chứng tâm thần phân liệt - bị mắc vào một giai đoạn loạn trí dữ dội.

Nỗi sợ bệnh tâm thần

baomai.blogspot.com
  
'The Shining' rõ ràng là câu chuyện hư cấu. Nhưng khi nói đến bệnh tâm thần và bạo lực thì công chúng, truyền thông và các nhà hoạch định chính sách cũng thường có khó khăn trong việc nhận rõ đâu là hiện thực đâu là ảo giác.

Các cuộc thăm dò ý kiến luôn cho thấy rằng đa số người trưởng thành ở Mỹ tin rằng những người mắc bệnh tâm thần nhiều khả năng sẽ trở nên bạo lực hơn những người bình thường.

Sự mặc định này càng được củng cố thêm mỗi khi xảy ra một vụ bắn giết người hàng loạt, mà sau đó tất yếu sẽ dẫn đến những lời kêu gọi cải cách lĩnh vực y tế tâm thần.

baomai.blogspot.com
  
Thế nhưng các bằng chứng cho thấy những gì về mối liên hệ giữa những tay súng giết người hàng loạt và bệnh tâm thần? Những hành động bạo lực như thế này có thật sự là vấn đề tâm thần hay không?

Nếu như mạng xã hội và các dòng tít giật gân có thể là đầu mối thì chúng ta có thể thấy nỗi sợ bạo lực cực đoan từ những người tâm thần là rất phổ biến.

"Ý tưởng cho rằng việc bị mất năng lực kiểm soát suy nghĩ hay hành vi là điều đáng sợ và lạ lẫm và điều này đã trở thành nỗi sợ bệnh tâm thần, nhất là hình thức cực đoan của nó," ông Paul Appelbaum, nhà tâm lý học tại Trường Y và Phẫu thuật thuộc Đại học Columbia, nói.

"Là con người, chúng ta cũng có sự quan tâm đặc biệt đến những sự kiện bất thường trong môi trường sống của chúng ta, do đó khi những xảy ra những hành động bạo lực của những người bệnh tâm thần thì những hành động sẽ đặc biệt ám ảnh tâm trí chúng ta."

baomai.blogspot.com

Những thảm họa phi lý như bắn người hàng loạt cũng làm nảy sinh hay đòi hỏi những câu trả lời - mà thường được trông đợi là câu trả lời sẽ đi kèm với những giải pháp dễ dàng, Jeffrey Swanson, giáo sư tâm thần và khoa học hành vi tại Khoa Y Đại học Duke, nói.

"Chúng ta muốn cuộc sống được an toàn, có thể đoán biết trước và hợp lý," ông giải thích. "Phản ứng thông thường là muốn có một cách giải thích tổng thể đơn giản hóa quá mức để chúng ta có thể nói rằng: "À, đó là do bệnh tâm thần'."

Khuyến khích kỳ thị

baomai.blogspot.com
  
Kết luận tự động như thế là sai lầm, ông nói tiếp, bởi vì nó khuyến khích hơn nữa sự kỳ thị đối với những người bị bệnh tâm thần mà nhiều người trong số họ đã phải chịu cuộc sống cực kỳ khó khăn, đã phải đối diện với sự phân biệt đối xử trong một số lĩnh vực như nhà cửa, công ăn việc làm và quan hệ xã hội.

Những người bị mắc bệnh tâm thần có khả năng nhiều hơn gấp ba lần người bình thường trong nguy cơ trở thành nạn nhân của bạo lực bởi vì họ dễ bị tổn thương hơn.

Đúng là một số vụ bắn giết hàng loạt và những hành vi bạo lực tàn bạo khác có thủ phạm là những người bị tâm thần nghiêm trọng.

Chẳng hạn như hồi năm 1998, Wendell Williamson, một sinh viên luật mà sau đó bị chẩn đoán là mắc chứng tâm thần phân liệt hoang tưởng, đã bắn chết hai người lại trên đường phố ở Chapel Hill, bang North Carolina, Hoa Kỳ.

baomai.blogspot.com
  
Williamson nói rằng anh ta hành động với niềm tin rằng anh ta đang đi cứu thế giới, và bồi thẩm đoàn cuối cùng cũng phán quyết anh ta vô tội do bị tâm thần.

Tuy nhiên, những trường hợp như thế, Swanson nói, chỉ là thiểu số. Thật ra, có ít tay súng giết người hàng loạt thật sự bị một chứng bệnh tâm thần nghiêm trọng có thể chẩn đoán được như tâm thần phân liệt, rối loạn lưỡng cực hay rối loạn bao quát.

Chẳng hạn như một phân tích hồi năm 2004 trên hơn 60 kẻ sát nhân hàng loạt ở Bắc Mỹ đã nhận thấy rằng chỉ có 6% trong số đó bị tâm thần vào lúc họ phạm tội.

Và đối với các vụ bắn giết hàng loạt, những thủ phạm bị bệnh tâm thần chỉ chiếm "chưa tới 1% trong tổng số tất cả các vụ giết người bằng súng hàng năm", một nghiên cứu hồi năm 2016 cho biết.

Những nghiên cứu khác chỉ ra rằng những người tâm thần chỉ gây ra khoảng 3-5% tổng số các vụ bạo lực trên đất Mỹ (thấp hơn nhiều so với sự phổ biến của bệnh tâm thần trong toàn bộ dân số - chiếm tới gần 18%). Điều này có nghĩa là "sẽ còn lại 96% các vụ bạo lực nếu chúng ta có thể triệt tiêu hết những người mắc bệnh tâm thần," ông Appelbaum chỉ ra.

Không thể quy cho bệnh tâm thần

baomai.blogspot.com
  
Hơn nữa, phần lớn những vụ bạo lực mà những người mắc bệnh tâm thần nghiêm trọng gây ra đều là những vụ nhỏ, chẳng hạn chửi mắng hay đánh đập chứ không phải sát nhân (tuy nhiên tự sát lại là một vấn đề lớn), và những hành động bạo lực đó có xu hướng nhằm vào những người mà họ sống chung chứ không phải người không quen biết và cũng không phải ở mức độ hàng loạt.

Các vụ tấn công quy mô lớn cũng đòi hỏi mức độ lên kế hoạch và tổ chức mà thường những ai mắc bệnh tâm thần nghiêm trọng không thể làm nổi.

baomai.blogspot.com  
  
Chẳng hạn như một nghiên cứu hồi năm 2014 nhận thấy chỉ có 2% trong tổng số 951 bệnh nhân được xuất viện từ một bệnh viện tâm thần gây ra hành động bạo lực có dùng súng và chỉ có 6% có hành động bạo lực liên quan đến người lạ.

Tương tự, một phân tích hồi năm 2011 đối với trên 700 vụ giết người do những người bị chẩn đoán mắc bệnh tâm thần gây ra cho thấy chỉ có khoảng từ 3% cho đến 14% các nạn nhân là người lạ - những nạn nhân còn lại đều là người quen biết.

Tuy nhiên, ngay cả trong những trường hợp mà người tâm thần nghiêm trọng thật sự hành xử bạo lực, khó mà gắn kết tội ác của họ chỉ dựa hoàn toàn vào bệnh tật của họ, Swanson nói.

Các biến số phức tạp hóa bao gồm tiền sử bị bạo hành khi còn nhỏ hay sử dụng chất kích thích và bia rượu có thể tăng khả năng hành động bạo lực.

"Nếu anh loại trừ tất cả các nhân tố hiểm họa khác mà chỉ nhìn vào sự mất trí thì gần như nó không có liên quan gì đến hành vi bạo lực cả," Swanson nói.

"Có một sự đồng thuận trong số những nhà nghiên cứu lĩnh vực này rằng sự góp phần của bệnh tâm thần đối với việc gây ra bạo lực trong người dân là rất nhỏ."

Tuy nhiên, khi xảy ra một thảm họa không thể nào hiểu được, đối với nhiều người sẽ khó mà tiêu hóa được ý nghĩa của kết luận trên.

"Khi xảy ra một vụ bắn giết bừa bãi ghê rợn, mọi người sẽ nói: 'Ai mà làm những chuyện như vậy ắt hẳn là bị tâm thần'," Renee Binder, giáo sư và là giám đốc chương trình tâm thần và luật pháp tại Trường Y Đại học California ở San Francisco, nói.

"Tuy nhiên, chúng ta cần phải cẩn thận với định nghĩa của mình bởi vì mặc dù họ có điều gì đó rất không ổn, thường họ không phải là mắc chứng tâm thần nghiêm trọng."

Đưa ra mối liên hệ không chính xác cũng có thể làm chệch hướng trọng tâm của cuộc tranh luận về chính sách ở Mỹ.

Trong những cuộc bàn cãi về việc giới hạn sử dụng súng, một số người bắt đầu nói về việc sửa chữa hệ thống y tế tâm thần thay vì nhìn vào vấn đề súng đạn.

baomai.blogspot.com
  
"Đột nhiên bạn các tổ chức vận động cho quyền sở hữu súng - vốn rất có thế lực ở quốc gia này và có lợi ích trong việc không để cho quyền sử dụng súng bị quản lý - trở nên cổ suý cho việc cải thiện hệ thống y tế tâm thần ở Mỹ," Swanson nói. "Đó là sự xao lãng để chúng ta không nói về súng đạn nữa."

Khó dự liệu

Khó mà vẽ ra bức chân dung tâm lý của những kẻ giết người hàng loạt, bởi vì thông thường chúng sẽ tự sát hay bị bắn chết trong vụ tấn công.

Nhưng những gì mà các bác sỹ và các nhà khoa học thật sự biết là hung thủ trong những vụ thảm sát như thế thường là nam thanh niên, giận dữ vì cảm thấy họ bị xã hội chà đạp và do đó tìm cách trả thù.

Tuy nhiên, vấn đề là có hàng chục ngàn người nằm trong diện đó mà đại đa số họ cũng không giết người hàng loạt. "Nếu chúng ta có thể làm điều gì đó về tính hung hăng ở nam giới, chúng ta có thể thật sự giảm được bạo lực và tội ác," Swanson giải thích. "Nhưng chúng ta không thể gom tất cả đàn ông lại."

baomai.blogspot.com
  
Trên thực tế, chúng ta không thể nào đoán trước được ai sẽ trở thành sát thủ hàng loạt, Swanson nói. Một số kẻ bắn giết hàng loạt thậm chí còn đến gặp bác sỹ tâm thần để chữa các rối loạn hành vi trước khi họ thực hiện vụ tấn công nhưng chẩn đoán lại không cho thấy họ mắc chứng tâm thần nào cả.

"Đa số những người bắn giết hàng loạt không muốn được điều trị và cũng không đáp ứng các tiêu chí để được điều trị," Binder chỉ ra. Chúng ta cũng không thể nào bắt ai đó vào viện tâm thần chỉ vì họ giận dữ.

Điều này có nghĩa là củng cố việc điều trị cho các bệnh nhân tâm thần thật sự sẽ không giải quyết được tình trạng bạo lực súng đạn ở Mỹ, Swanson nói. Đa số các thủ phạm vẫn có thể lọt qua được.

Do đó, trong các cuộc bàn cãi về việc làm thế nào để giảm các vụ bắn giết hàng loạt, các bằng chứng cho thấy việc đóng khung các vụ thảm sát trong nguyên nhân tâm thần không thể giúp ngăn chặn các vụ tấn công sau này - và chỉ có tác dụng lan truyền vĩnh viễn một nỗi sợ không có căn cứ về những người tâm thần không ổn mà nỗi sợ bắt nguồn từ sự tưởng tượng nhiều hơn là thực tế.

          Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton Expand Company’s Partnership With Clean the World       Cache   Translate Page      

In honor of National Handwashing Awareness Week, Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton announced a partnership with Clean the World, the world's largest organization to recycle hotel soap and bath amenities. Furthering Hilton’s 2030 target to send zero soap to landfill, Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton commit to supporting Clean the World by providing recycled hygiene products to save the lives of those in need. 

As part of the global partnership that begins in 2019, more than 670 Hilton Garden Inn and 2,230 Hampton by Hilton properties in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic will recycle discarded soap and bathroom amenity bottles to be converted into new bars of soap and hygiene kits. By recycling these products, Clean the World provides soap to those in need, ultimately preventing diseases within communities and reducing mortality rates around the world.

The partnership between Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton with Clean the World is an extension of the pre-existing partnership between the global nonprofit organization and Hilton. In October 2016, Embassy Suites by Hilton, Homewood Suites by Hilton and Home2 Suites by Hilton announced an industry-first standard that has added over 1,000 hotels to the Clean the World program, diverting more than 397,000 pounds of waste from landfills into recycled materials. Hilton’s partnership with Clean the World has already helped distribute over 7.1 million bars of recycled soap to people across 127 countries. With this new commitment, Hilton will more than double the number of hotels it has in the program. 

“We have witnessed the powerful global impact Hilton’s partnership with Clean the World has made and how it continues to serve those most in need and inspires a sustainable future,” said Bill Duncan, global head of Hilton’s All Suites and Focused Service brands. “We’re proud of the work that has been done thus far and look forward to deepening our commitment to providing at-risk communities with access to soap while simultaneously reducing waste across the globe.” 

Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton’s alliance with Clean the World is part of Hilton’s Travel with Purpose corporate responsibility initiative. The partnership supports Hilton’s goal to send zero soap to landfills by 2030 and cut the company’s environmental footprint in half through responsible hospitality. 

Clean the World’s mission to protect the environment and save millions of lives by leading a global hygiene revolution began in 2009 and since then, the organization has distributed recycled soap and other hygienic products to families in need, contributing to a 35 percent reduction in the death rate of children under the age of five dying due to hygiene-related illnesses. The soap is made from discarded bars donated by hotels around the world, then crushed, sanitized and cut into new soap.  Clean the World’s foundation distributes these soap bars to individuals in need or adds them to hygiene kits along with shampoo, a toothbrush and a towel as part of its WASH (water, sanitization, and hygiene) education and emergency relief efforts. The recycled bath products go to underserved communities to ensure proper handwashing and hygiene is encouraged to eliminate the threat of numerous preventable diseases. Hilton has worked with Clean the World since its launch to help overcome this epidemic in various countries, as well as in times of natural disasters, and now will further support the organization through Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton.

“Hilton’s partnership with Clean the World has already made an impressive life-changing impact around the globe since we joined forces,” said Shawn Seipler, founder and CEO of Clean the World. “The very first hotel we collected soap from was Hampton Inn by Hilton Orlando-International Airport in 2009, and today, we are eager to keep the momentum going by extending our alliance among Hampton by Hilton and Hilton Garden Inn brands. Together, we can work to eradicate diarrheal diseases and pneumonia, the two top killers of children worldwide, in our lifetime.”  

In addition to its soap recycling program, Hilton leads many sustainability initiatives through Hilton's Travel with Purpose corporate responsibility strategy. For information on the company’s Travel with Purpose goals visit cr.hilton.com/toward2030/ or cr.hilton.com.

Three performances only!

"The coltish April Kidwell, as Nomi, is a wonder. She is tireless, fearless and performing circles around Elizabeth Berkley's portrayal in the movie. Her vibrant physicality and knowing humor are a potent riposte to the story's rabid misogyny." - Andy Webster, The New York Times

"Her energy fuels the show, and watching her, you get the feeling that she could power a city with her sweat. Her performance is a tour de force." - Rich Juzwiak, Gawker

"April Kidwell is a fearless comic performer, delivering her lines like an orc and dancing like an orangutan, even as the script dictates that her boobs be sent flying from the opening scene." - Lily Janiak, SFGate

(San Francisco, June, 2018) In any discussion of the all-time greatest female movie characters, there are certain names that are always guaranteed to come up: Dorothy Gale, Scarlett O'Hara, Holly Golightly...and Nomi Malone. And if you don't think she belongs on that list, let's just hope she doesn't find out-this one's got a temper.

As played by Elizabeth Berkley in Paul Verhoeven's immortal 1995 cult classicShowgirls, Nomi is an ambitious young woman of indeterminate origin who hitches a ride to Las Vegas with a single dream: to dance. And dance she does, first as a topless dancer at garish strip club The Cheetah, and then as a (still topless) dancer in the Stardust's glitzy hotel show, Goddess.

After bearing witness to Nomi's meteoric rise and abrupt departure at the height of her fame, we're left with many questions: who the hell was that woman? Where's her family? What "different places" did she come from? What exactly was her history with doggie chow? And what manner of destruction will she inflict upon her next location after fleeing Vegas?

You could ask Elizabeth Berkley these questions, but what does she know? She only played Nomi once! The real answers lie with the foremost theatrical interpreter of Nomi Malone and Berkley's other iconic role, Saved by the Bell's Jessie Spano: acclaimed actress/singer/comedienne April Kidwell.

After originating the role of Nomi in Bob and Tobly McSmith's Off Broadway musical Showgirls! The Musical! and reprising it for the show's west coast premiere run in San Francisco, Kidwell has played Nomi soooooo many times and knows every last thing there is to know about her. And now, she's ready to share that knowledge with the rest of us.

Written and produced by Kidwell and directed by Michael Phillis (of the cabaret smashBaloney), I, NOMI is Kidwell's raunchy, raucously funny one-woman imagining of the adolescence and life beyond Vegas of our favorite feral heroine. Featuring outrageous original songs and more than a few bombshells, this is a ferocious and empowering night of musical comedy for the #MeToo movement. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll paint your lips on way too big while having epileptic orgasms. And when all is said and done, you'll walk away saying, "Nomi? No. ME."

The show begins at 8 p.m. on Thursday, January 3rd, and at 7 p.m. on Friday, January 4th, and Saturday, January 5th. Doors open 60 minutes before showtime.

          Las Vegas Gay Couple Say Violent Attack Was A Hate Crime      Cache   Translate Page      

A gay couple in Las Vegas, Nevada, were the target of a violent hate crime that sent them both to the hospital.

Charles Clements told local news affiliate FOX5 that when he picked his boyfriend Vincent up from work last Thursday night, they had no idea they were followed home.

As he was unlocking the front door of their home, Clements heard Vincent call his name. 

“I was about to unlock the door, the next thing I hear, he’s calling my name,” Clements said. “I come back, I see my boyfriend fighting with the guy.”

As two men attacked Vincent, the assault moved to the front porch of their home where a glass table was knocked over and shattered. It was then that one of the attackers reached for a shard of glass.

“He picked up the glass and I was like, ‘Don’t do that,’” says Clements. “He started stabbing my boyfriend in the back. The guy was kicking him in his ribs.”

According to Clements, the attack drew the attention of neighbors who watched from a distance but did nothing to intervene. “Neighbors, everybody just looking,” he said. “Nobody called the police.”

After the two men got in their car and drove away, Clements realized he was bleeding. At the hospital, they learned that the attackers had punctured Vincent’s lung and broken several ribs.

After calling 911, Vincent told police he recognized one of the men as someone who works with him at Walmart. 

“It was all about gay bashing,” Clements told FOX5. “The guy came up to my boyfriend’s job, calling him an abomination, calling him fag.”

“I never been through nothing like this in my life,” he added. “I was so scared.”

Clements is now frightened to continue living in their present home,  “I don’t want to be in this apartment no more because I’m afraid they’re going to come back.”

Clements’ uncle is currently helping the couple to find a new place to live.

Police are investigating the incident but no news on any arrests at this time.

A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to help with the couple’s hospital bills and moving expenses.

          Comment on Las Vegas – Neue Parkplatzgebühren an den Strip-Kasinohotels by Isa      Cache   Translate Page      
Hi, die IHG-Häuser sind super, da geb ich Dir recht. Aber in Vegas sind mir persönlich Hotels im zentralen Strip Bereich lieber, damit sich alles zu Fuß machen lässt und man nach ein paar Cocktails auch noch gut heimtorkeln kann... :lala: Das Tuscany hat normale Motelqualität, das stimmt, aber Fr und Sa passt Preis-Leistung bei den meisten Strip-Hotels schon lange nicht mehr. Wobei ich muss ruhig sein, haben erst kürzlich eine Freitagnacht im Paris ganz oben mit Strip-View gebucht. Manchmal kann man dann doch nicht widerstehen... O:-)

Ich weiß, Uralt-thread... Das Tuscany ist wirklich (im besten Sinne) spottbillig, da gibt es sicher wenig, was Preis/Werter ist. Für eine oder zwei Nächte sicher super! Wir haben da mal eine Show gesehen, die Anlage ist nicht so unser Fall. Ist aber alles eine Geschmack- und/oder Budgetfrage. Unser Geheimtip ist ein off-Strip Suitehotel, komplett OHNE Rummel und pling-pling, hochwertig (und gerade frisch renoviert) mit 1 Bdrm Suites und full (und ich meine FULL!) kitchen (das T. scheint nur Junior Suiten und die 2 Bdrm Exec zu haben, letztere hat lt. Bildern nur sink und fridge), großem Bad mit Wanne und sep. WC (Dlx Suite), washer/dryer auf dem Zimmer und free hot breakfast (sehr gut essbar!). Wir bleiben meist eine Woche, da ist das sehr praktisch. Im Haus natürlich Pool, Fitnessraum, BusinessCenter und MiniShop. Liegt preislich aber beim rund Dreifachen. Staybridge Suites, 2 min. vom Mandalay entfernt.

          Pretty in Pink Vinyl: An Interview with Disco Legend Alfa Anderson      Cache   Translate Page      


None


5 May 2018: Alfa Anderson is back home in Augusta, Georgia at her alma mater Paine College. Mayor Hardie Davis, Jr. and Commissioner William Fennoy have given her the keys to the city and declared 5 May "Alfa Anderson Day". So much has changed in Anderson's life since she first left Augusta to attend Teachers College, Columbia University in New York, and she has the platinum albums to prove it. However, one thing has remained steadfast — in a city that raised legends like James Brown and Jessye Norman, Alfa Anderson is one of Augusta's most beloved daughters.

"Alfa Anderson Day" coincided with a particularly bountiful time in the singer's career. Earlier in 2018, Ontario-based record company Rammit Records commissioned Boomtang and 83 West to remix "Perfectly Chic", one of the key tracks from Anderson's self-released solo debut Music From My Heart (2017). Following a digital EP in March, which generated a chart-topping smash for Anderson in South America, Rammit pressed the "Perfectly Chic" remixes on pink vinyl as a limited edition 12-inch single. Though millions of listeners know Anderson's striking visage from several CHIC album sleeves, "Perfectly Chic" marks the singer's very first vinyl release as a solo artist. The smile she wears on the cover is one of triumph.

This past fall, Anderson was also inducted into the Legends of Vinyl (L.O.V.) Hall of Fame along with Norma Jean Wright, CHIC's original lead singer, and Luci Martin, who shared lead vocals with Anderson when Wright pursued a solo career in 1978. The honor marked yet another seminal moment for the three vocalists since their first onstage reunion in 2014. Rebranding themselves as "Next Step", the trio joined Kathy Sledge in Ibiza to record "Get on Up" (2015). Produced by Aristofreeks, the song soared to the Top Ten of Billboard's dance chart in May 2016 and brought Anderson's history with Sledge full circle.

Decades earlier, Anderson was among the background vocalists on Sister Sledge's breakthrough album We Are Family (1979) produced by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards for the CHIC Organization. "Alfa helped my career with her voice because she was part of the CHIC sound," says Kathy Sledge, who sang lead on the Grammy-nominated title track. "Her tone and quality are badass. Nile and Bernard knew there was a uniqueness in her tone, along with the other CHIC Organization singers. Here you had these top producers at the height of their career who didn't deviate from that formula. That speaks volumes. As members of groups, and I can certainly vouch for this, sometimes we don't know our value, but we know our gifts more than anyone. Alfa knows her gift and she's sharing it on a whole new level now. It's no surprise that people are receiving and embracing her solo project. I'm so excited for her!"

The forecast for 2019 appears to hold as much promise as 2018. Anderson will begin the year by joining Martin and Wright as co-headliners of the six-day "Ultimate Disco Cruise" from Ft. Lauderdale to Cozumel, followed by the trio's performance at Pygmalion Fest in New Orleans. Later in the spring, Anderson will once again host "Fandross Festival" in New York, which celebrates the music, life, and legacy of her friend Luther Vandross. In her exclusive interview with PopMatters, Anderson reflects on a year of solo victories and shares why she's always said "yes" to life.

Alfa, since our last interview in 2013, it seems like you've kept reaching new benchmarks in your career with each passing year. We'll talk about some of the ways 2018 has been a particularly exceptional year for you, but first I'd love to know how your experience of performing onstage now compares to 40 years ago during your first tour with CHIC.

It's still just as exciting, and I still love it just as much as I did 40 years ago. The most spectacular thing that's happened for me is that I'm getting recognition as a solo artist, [emphasizes] as Alfa Anderson. I just recently had a number one record on the Music Worx chart in South America. The chart says, "Perfectly Chic" — Alfa Anderson. That makes me smile.

It's good to be able to perform at a pace where I can give my all and still take care of myself along the way. Taking care of myself is of primary importance now. Forty years ago …

… anything goes?

Sort of! [laughs] Forty years ago, if I wanted to perform and then stay up late and hang out and go to after-parties, it was not a problem. Now, I can only burn the candle at one end! [laughs] That's different. Instead of a margarita, I'm drinking smoothies.

Back in May, Augusta celebrated "Alfa Anderson Day". How did your hometown decide to honor you?

That day came about from one of the city council members, Commissioner William Fennoy, and my high school classmates. They wanted to honor me for the work that I've done in music. I'd no idea that they'd followed my career since I left Augusta after graduating from Paine College.

In fact, I'll never forget what I told my mother's banker as I was about to leave for New York. I was so excited and dropped in to share the news. He used to call me by my first and middle name — it's a very southern thing — and said "Alfa Karlys, you're going to New York?" I said, "Yes." He said, "Why are you going to New York? It just disturbs me that our best and brightest young people leave" — his words, not mine. "How will we ever make things better here in this city if you leave? New York doesn't need you. We do."

I was honored that he felt that way about me, but there was something calling me to New York. At that time, I had no idea what it was going to be. It culminated in this musical career that I could never have envisioned when I was a young girl growing up in the south. I was always encouraged to excel and to make my family and my home town proud of who I was.

You mentioned "Perfectly Chic" being number one in South America. How would you describe the life of that song since you first released it on Music From My Heart?

This song must be like a cat — it has nine lives! It was released last July in 2017 and people are still discovering it. I licensed it to Rammit Records who thought that it was a cool song. They wanted to remix it. A lot of people say that it's a very CHIC-type song and they like that because it's nostalgic. It's classic yet it's current. It's been almost a year and six months since it was first released. It's still got legs and now it's on pink vinyl. I'm overjoyed!

Of course, you premiered "Perfectly Chic" at Joe's Pub at the Public Theater for your CD release show, which also doubled as your first solo concert. What were your expectations going into that show and how did you feel afterward?

I was just hoping the audience would stay! [laughs] I took a big chance. Who performs ten unknown, original songs in New York at Joe's Pub? I knew they were going to love the CHIC stuff, like "At Last I Am Free" and "I Want Your Love", but the new material went over just as well.

When it was time for me to go onstage, I said to my glam squad, "I want to go home!" They said, "It's too late for you to go home now. The band is onstage. The people are here. You've got to go on!" The band started to play my opening number and I made my entrance. Once I got onstage, I decided to be vulnerable and let people know that I was really nervous because I had never done an entire solo show before. I was so encouraged by their love. I relaxed and just enjoyed every minute.

I got an email the next day from someone who told me that I was a God-conscious performer. I brought a spirit of unity, and that made everybody come together. When I read that, I was nearly moved to tears because I want to be a unifying force.

I think one of the songs that really did unify the audience that night was "In the Stillness". Sadly, we recently lost Madeleine Yayodele Nelson, who joined you onstage and also played on the studio version of that song. How did she contribute to your overall vision for "In the Stillness", on record as well as in concert?

I didn't know her before. I knew of her. When I wrote "In the Stillness", which was the first song that I wrote for the album, we called it an outlier because it was different from anything else on the album. When Bert Price, my co-writer and co-producer, and I were figuring out what to do with the song, I said, "It's got to evoke peace, calm, tranquility, and a centeredness about who you are and why you're on the planet. I want shekere. I want drums. I want a tribal, spiritual feel."

I remembered that Valerie Ghent had worked with Yayodele and I knew that she was the founder of Women of the Calabash. I called her. I didn't know whether or not she'd respond, but she did. I sent her the song. She loved it and agreed to perform on it. She came in the studio and brought her shekere and djembe drum. It's such a pleasure for a writer / performer to see a song come to life.

For my show, I wanted to perform as many songs from the album as possible. In the back of my mind, I was thinking, These are songs that nobody knows. How are you going to make this an interesting evening for everybody? Yayodele was one of the first musical guests I thought of. She had to be a part of this show. She came and brought her shekere and blessed us with her incredibly powerful spirit. The ancestors were definitely there with us.

I think the personal highlight for me as an audience member was when Karen Milne joined you onstage for "Sending Love", which is probably my favorite song on the album. It was such a brilliant idea to feature one of the original players from the CHIC Strings on that song. How did it occur to you to include Karen on "Sending Love"?

Norma, Luci, and I had done an interview with Karen about three years ago. We spoke about how nice it would be to work together again. When I wrote "Sending Love", I knew it needed a violin, and I knew Karen was just the person to ask. She played such a hauntingly beautiful melody on the song.

At Joe's Pub, did you hear the ovation Karen got when I announced that she was there? I'm so lucky that she got the night off from playing first violin in Phantom of the Opera! Not only was she there, but the other original CHIC Strings (Cheryl Hong and Marianne Carroll) were there too. Afterward, Cheryl and Marianne said, "We want to go on the road again!"

None


Beyond the concert, how did you feel holding a copy of Music from My Heart in your hands when it arrived?

[sighs] It was a dream come true, a real accomplishment, and I remembered what it took for me to get there. I had so many supporters — my family, friends, and fans — who wished me well and wanted me to succeed.

Earlier this year, you hosted an event that was part of "Fandross Festival", a four-day celebration of Luther Vandross held throughout different New York venues. You'd already recorded "When Luther Sings" as part of your album and performed it during the festival. In the years since his passing, what have you learned or grown to appreciate about Luther now versus when you sang background for him in the '80s?

I appreciate his attention to detail. He would come up to you and say, "You know, those are not the right earrings". I also appreciate that, no matter how he felt, he always gave 1,000% onstage. He paid attention to everything that was going on.

I didn't know how much I learned from him until I started working on my own stage show. I've got this aesthetic in my head that's definitely a Luther aesthetic, but without the Luther resources! [laughs] Everything he did was first-class. He would use bugle beads instead of sequins. Bugle beads are a lot more expensive. They're heavier too. [laughs]

Back in 2014, you, Norma Jean, and Luci first performed together as a trio for the "First Ladies of Disco" concert in Palm Springs and then appeared with Company Freak at "SummerStage" in Central Park. How has the dynamic among the three of you grown over the past four years throughout all of the different projects that you've done?

The dynamic has blossomed. There were so many years between the time we had worked together in CHIC and when we got back together. We worked through earlier issues that we had, which developed a trust and a sisterhood that cannot be broken. The last time we rehearsed for an upcoming gig, they sang "Perfectly Chic" the way I want to hear it sung. We are considering making it our signature song.

Norma Jean actually sang background on the recording of "Perfectly Chic" as well.

She did! Luci didn't because she was in Florida at the time. We plan to use that song as our opening number. The first time I sang it outside of New York, I think we were performing at Taste of Omaha. We put it later in the set because I wanted to see how people would react to that song in the middle of all those other classic CHIC Organization songs. The audience loved it.

Luci said, "I have an idea. Instead of every night trying to figure out whether or not people are going to love it, let's just put it in the top of the show. They're not going to walk out. They're going to be so excited that they're going to accept it." It tells the story of who we are, which is what I wanted to do. It's an homage to that time in my life that I'll carry with me forever.

One of the projects that the three you have done together since reuniting is record with Kathy Sledge on "Get on Up" (2015). It's such a full-circle moment because you and Norma Jean were among the background vocalists who sang on Sister Sledge's We Are Family album. Describe the experience of working with Kathy so many years later.

It was an amazing experience. We were in Ibiza — not a bad place to record at all. In the studio, I imagined Kathy as a 17-year-old with braces, walking up to this microphone and owning "We Are Family". The voice that she has now is the voice that she's always had. It's a very unique voice. It's a sexy voice. I love the raspiness of it. I love her spontaneity. I love the way she delivers and tells the story. She makes you believe it. That's one of the things that we all try to do — tell the story and draw people in.

None


Just after Next Step premiered "Get on Up", Cirque du Soleil performed with you, Norma Jean, and Luci at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Is there any other gig in your career that compares to that?

No, it was unlike anything else! Talk about lights, camera, action — they had it all there! It was the first time we'd actually performed for millennials. We didn't know whether or not the younger people were going to like what we did, but they couldn't get enough.

I had to get used to the volume. [laughs] That's when I realized, no performer goes onstage without earplugs, which we didn't use back in the day. The sound was deafening. You could just feel the vibration of the bass through the soles of your feet. Then you've got these people flying on trapezes, and you've got explosions, and you've got lights.

Shortly before you recorded with Kathy Sledge, you also reunited with Nile Rodgers for a CHIC reunion single called "I'll Be There" (2015). It was amazing to see you come back together at the Power Station where Nile and Bernard produced all of the classic CHIC albums. How did you feel walking into the studio with Nile there, as well as the people that you sang with for years, like Luci and Fonzi Thornton, plus Kim Davis and Folami — the new CHIC Organization vocalists?

I'm a softie. My husband says I'm a weeping willow. It took everything that I had not to cry because it was such a powerful moment. I couldn't believe I was back where it all began. I spent a good bit of time in Studio B working on those CHIC songs that became such huge hits. I thought about those who are no longer with us, like Bernard, Tony (Thompson), and Raymond (Jones).

When I saw Nile, we shared a big hug. At one point, I didn't know if I was going to be able to sing because I was getting so choked up. I had to work through it quietly. It was a wonderful experience to be there. The respect from Nile and the respect from Kim and Folami was very evident. The camaraderie that I had with Fonzi and with Luci … I felt like I was home.

Nile recently released It's About Time (2018), the first new CHIC album since CHIC-ism (1992). In reviewing the album for Rolling Stone, Maura Johnston highlighted Lady Gaga's vocal on a revamped version of "I Want Your Love", saying that she was "stepping into Alfa Anderson's platforms". How did you feel when you read that?

To be mentioned by someone as prestigious as this writer from Rolling Stone, who actually remembered that I sang the original, was heartwarming and humbling. That's the thing that means a lot to me. People know the songs more than they know my name. Nile has a wonderful group out touring now with Folami and Kim, who are excellent singers. The band is a beast! I love what they're doing. Audiences know them and they know the songs, but they don't necessarily know that I was the one who originated that vocal on "I Want Your Love".

Rhino just compiled The CHIC Organization 1977-1979, a box set of the first three CHIC albums plus We Are Family. It's perfect timing since C'est CHIC (1978) turned 40 this year. It's really a flawless album. Not only does it have "I Want Your Love", "Le Freak", and your exquisite vocal on "At Last I Am Free", but then it also has these great songs where Bernard is actually featured as a vocalist. So many people think of him as a bassist and Nile's writing / producing partner, but he also had these vocal step-outs. "Happy Man" is a prime example of that, so is your duet with him on "Sometimes You Win". Vocally, what did Bernard bring to those songs?

I think his voice was very much like his bass-playing. He couldn't hold notes. He would say that — "I can't hold notes" — but he was a rhythmic guy, a funky guy. He was able to create a singing style for himself with his deep voice, where he didn't have to hold notes. It's the rhythmic approach to what he did that I think made his voice very distinctive.

Of course, you and Diva Gray shared the lead vocal on "Le Freak", which supplanted Barbra Streisand and Neil Diamond's "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" from number one in December 1978. The Library of Congress recently added it to the National Recording Registry in 2017. Let's talk about the genius of that song for a minute. Why do you think people are still shouting "Freak out!" Forty years later?

Who knew, right? You hear it all the time. Sometimes things just become part of the culture and the American vernacular. That happens to be one of those phrases that has done that. Sometimes something is phrased in a way that is so succinct yet all-encompassing and so powerful that nothing else will do.

Because it's so ingrained in pop culture, it's easy to take "Freak out!" for granted, but what do you remember about how Nile and Bernard presented that particular phrase to you and the other CHIC Organization vocalists?

It was definitely different, but I was more worried about the French being recognizable! [laughs]

The "Le freak / c'est chic" part?

Yes! I was more concerned about the French than the English. [laughs] Then when we did "A Warm Summer Night", there's "Te quiero". When I first looked at it, I said, [exaggerates] "Tay key-err-o!" because I didn't know any Spanish. They laughed and laughed. That's why Luci ended up speaking that part because I was going to enunciate every little consonant and make sure that all the vowels were there.

None


I'd like to ask you about another bassist, your husband, Tinkr Barfield. He released his solo album Blended (2018) this year and featured you on a couple of songs. You first met him when he played bass in Luther's band. How would you describe his approach to playing?

I love his funk playing. He's a groove master. When I first met him, he was known for the kind of funk that he brought to the bass. What's happening for him now is that he's beginning to explore melody on the bass, like he did on his arrangement of "My Favorite Things".

The film version of The Wiz (1978) also turned 40 in 2018. You were one of several vocalists who sang in the choir on the soundtrack. What do you remember about being in the studio with so many vocal greats?

What I remember was being in awe during the session. The principals were not there, but everywhere I looked, there was someone I admired. I remember seeing Valerie Simpson, Patti Austin, and, of course, Luther was there. I was just one of the new kids on the block and grateful to have been invited.

On that day, Quincy Jones showed me why he's the great producer he is. The efficiency with which he made it all work and put everybody together — this was years before "We Are the World" — was masterful.

I remember the speaking part for "red" and "green" ("Emerald City Sequence"). I was thinking to myself, How are we going to get all of these people with these different voices to speak these parts and sound as one? That was the first time I understood the power of unison speaking and unison singing, which carried over to CHIC. We all got into the spirit of it. It truly was sheer joy and happiness.

Speaking of Valerie Simpson, you've sung background for her on a couple of different occasions in recent years. What does she inspire in you?

She inspires passion in me. When I worked with her, it was like working with a master. I had to pull from deep within myself. When I worked with Luther, he had layered, lush background vocals. Valerie and Nick's sound also had layers, but their sound was more raw and passionate. Luther admired Valerie's stage presence. He always said, "If you really want to know how do it well, look to Valerie Simpson".

You, Norma Jean, and Luci were inducted into the 2018 Legends of Vinyl (L.O.V.) Hall of Fame alongside other renowned singers like Melba Moore, Gloria Gaynor, and Sarah Dash. Why do you think artists who are linked to the disco era have been receiving so much recognition in recent years, more so now than, let's say, ten or 15 years ago?

I think it's because disco music brought people together, which never goes out of style. We're in a culture now that's so divisive. People are tired of that separatism. We all realize that if that continues to happen there's no hope for us as a country.

Disco was intergenerational and multicultural. It didn't matter what your socioeconomic status or sexual orientation was. We were all laughing, having fun. As I've grown older, I really understand that being joyful extends your life. Disco was always a place where people could get away from society's restrictions. The world puts you in a box, but when you're on the floor dancing, and you grab somebody's hand, it doesn't matter whose hand it is. That's what disco gave to the world.

I think that now, more than ever before, the resurgence of disco means that we really want to be free of all the "isms". People really do want to be together, talk to each other, and share experiences with each other.

Along that continuum, you performed at "LGBTQ Voices" presented by Flushing Town Hall and New York City Council Member Daniel Dromm at Queens Center back in May. What does the support of the LGBTQ community mean to you?

It means everything to me because I've been embraced by that community from the very beginning. Even back in Augusta, when things were super, super, super undercover and people could risk their lives by coming out, people confided in me. Many of them are gone now. They had a very difficult time growing up in the south. [pauses] They couldn't be who they wanted to be and they had to hide it. It was so painful. [wipes tears] People were very cruel, Christian. I get a little teary-eyed just thinking about it. Let me take a moment …You really made me think. I hadn't thought about that.

When we first met for an interview in 2013, I asked, "What would you tell yourself in 1979?" Let's rewind a year earlier. What would you tell this woman [Alfa Anderson] lounging against the couch on the cover of C'est CHIC?

I would tell that woman that she is enough. I would tell her to live each day secure in the knowledge that where she is where she is meant to be. She will learn, and she will grow as long as she says "yes" to life.

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Mendengar kota Las Vegas identik dengan kota judi, kota hiburan, dan kota cahaya. Julukan  kepada kota di salah satu negara bagian Nevada di Amerika Serikat itu memang tidak salah.

Sejak turun di Bandara McMaran, Las Vegas Amerika Serikat, suasana dan ornamen berkaitan dengan judi begitu mudah ditemui. Contohnya mesin judi seperti dindong dan gemerlap cahaya dari mesin judi tersebut.

Aktivitas judi dan sektor pariwisata menjadi sumber pemasukan ekonomi buat Las Vegas. Kehadiran hotel mewah dan besar di kota ini membuat Las Vegas tak sepi dari kegiatan meeting, incentive, convention and exhibiton (MICE).

Adapun salah satu konvensi besar yang diadakan oleh anak usaha Amazon.com yaitu Amazon Web Services (AWS). Konvensi digelar setiap tahun ini diberi nama AWS re:Invent. Biasanya kegiatan konvensi akan sepi menjelang akhir tahun.

"Las Vegas sering diadakan pertemuan-pertemuan  besar. Biasanya sepi ketika pada minggu pertama hingga ketiga Desember," ujar Jose, salah satu supir taksi di Las Vegas, seperti ditulis Rabu (5/12/2018).

          Five Tips and Tricks for the Gartner Identity and Access Management Summit 2018       Cache   Translate Page      

The Gartner Identity and Access Management Summit 2018 in Las Vegas is quickly approaching! If you are attending the conference, we encourage you to catch these sessions and events.

1. Visit the Oracle Booth

Oracle is a Platinum Exhibitor at the Gartner Identity and Access Management Summit 2018. We encourage you to spend some time at the Oracle Security Booth (#601) to learn more about Oracle's Security solutions in the identity management space. Additionally, connect with product management and other Oracle pecialists to discuss the ways in which Oracle has helped customers succeed in hybrid and multi cloud environments.

2. Session: Learn more about Oracle's Trust Fabric

Join Oracle SVP and General Manager of Security and Identity, Eric Olden, for a session that explores today's sophisticated threats and the need for proactive and intelligent solutions that can quickly scale to meet changing IT requirements. Olden will also share how Oracle's Trust Fabric helps organizations predict, prevent, detect, and respond to threats. The session will take place Monday, December 3rd from 3:45pm- 4:30pm.

3. Create a Winning Plan

The Gartner Identity and Access Management Summit offers attendees over 50 sessions, exhibit floors, and access to several peer and analyst networking opportunities. With so many options, we believe it is critical to come to the conference with a game plan. Gartner's registration page offers full abstracts for each session and can be filtered a number of ways, including by topic or track. This allows attendees to fine tune their interests and build an agenda through the registered attendee portal.

4. Understanding Your Roadmap

According to the 2018 Oracle and KPMG Cloud Threat Report, 82% of cyber leaders are concerned that employees do not follow cloud security policies. This leaves organizations at risk and exposed in ways they may not even be aware of. Prior to the conference, we recommend all attendees take the time to understand their roadmap and consider assessing their environments to understand any pace gaps they may need to address. Each environment is unique and exercises like this will give attendees a fresh lens to approach each session and gain meaningful takeaways from each session they attend.

5. Continuing Support

Throughout the conference, we encourage all attendees to visit @OracleSecurity on Twitter. Additionally, visit our webpage to learn about Oracle Security Solutions.

About the Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit 2018

The Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit 2018 will help attendees reimagine significant elements of their IAM approach for digital age success.

AT&T 5G logo

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

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

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

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

          Police release body cam video of fatal downtown Las Vegas officer-involved shooting      Cache   Translate Page      
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said the man killed in Saturday's officer-involved shooting had grabbed the officer's Taser. Police released body camera footage Tuesday showing a struggle between the suspect Demontry Boyd, and officer Paul Bruning. Police said Boyd ignored officer Bruning's commands. Officer Bruning, 48, opened fire and shot Boyd Saturday morning in the 1700 block of Fremont Street, near Bruce Street, Metro confirmed. Bruning has been employed with Metro since 2005. He is assigned to the Tourist Safety Division. Police said Bruning was placed on routine paid administrative leave pending the review of the incident. According to police, Bruning attempted a traffic stop on a car that was speeding and driving recklessly on 18th Street at around 7:40 a.m. When Boyd stopped near Fremont and Bruce, Boyd asked the driver to exit the vehicle and the driver complied, police said. After the suspect exited the car, he reached for a "large, bulky item on his waistband." Bruning gave several commands for Boyd to stop and asked what he was reaching for, police said. Prior to fatal officer-involved shooting, Las Vegas police officer was heard on body camera footage saying: "Get your hands out of your pockets! Get down on the ground!" "Boyd had an opportunity to flee, but charged right at our officer," Metro Police said Tuesday. Boyd did not listen and Bruning grabbed Boyd in an attempt to detain him, according to police. The man began fighting Bruning prompting him to use his Taser, which sent the man to the ground. A homemade knife was found on Bruning later. The man got back up and continued fighting Bruning. At some point during the second altercation, Bruning used his gun and fired twice at the Boyd, police said.

VOLUME 1

• SIGNATURE WILD CARD
A magic classic with a personalized twist as the performer's name magically appears on blank playing cards! A perfect opening effect!
• SPONGE BUNNIES
Steve's touches make this always-popular trick play for larger audiences.
• MINI-BLENDO
Four small scarves of different colors are placed into the magician's hands and instantly turn into a single large four-colored scarf. Simply beautiful and beautifully effective!
• COLOR-CHANGING DECK
A deck of cards changes from red-backed to blue-backed . . . that is, all except for a chosen card. However, that, too, changes to blue so that everything turns out right in the end. Easy to do and extremely magical. What's more . . . the deck is examinable at the end and ready for more magic!
• FOUR ACE PRODUCTION
The magician produces three Aces from a shuffled deck followed by a King. Not willing to accept defeat, the performer magically changes the King into the final Ace. A flourishy way to introduce the Aces that looks impossibly skillful-yet is surprisingly simple!
• FOUR ACE TRIUMPH
A deck of cards is divided and one half is turned face up. The two halves are shuffled together yet the magician manages to magically right the entire deck except for four cards, which just happen to be the four Aces. You'll love Steve's face-up face-down convincer.
• RAZOR CARDS
Himber's classic routine with the Dacri touch! A card is selected and returned to the pack. The cards are placed back into the box along with a straight-edge razor blade. The box is shaken and when the cards are spilled out, they're all in pieces except for the spectator's selected card.
• MARTIAN SPONGE BALLS
This is the trick that has taken Steve Dacri around the world. This is, arguably, one of the best and most commercial sponge ball routines ever devised.
• HAN PING CHIEN
Three coins travel invisibly from one of the performer's hands to the other. A great handling for another magic classic with a subtlety that guarantees spectator interest and involvement.
• BONUS SECTION
A hilarious clip from one of television's most-loved TV shows. Watch as Steve stars in two very funny segments from Allen Funt's classic "Candid Camera."

Running Time Approximately 39 min

VOLUME 2

• EXPLODING BUNNIES
A single sponge rabbit placed into a spectator's hand literally explodes into a bevy of bunnies when the spectator drops it onto a table.
• BREAKFAST TRICK
A real-world version of the card to impossible place plot as a playing card, selected under extremely fair conditions, vanishes, only to be found in a sealed box of cereal.
• INDIAN CUPS & BALLS
A beautiful version of a traditional, but rarely seen, classic magic effect. Small balls vanish and reappear under brass bells in a variety of amusing ways, leading up to an amazing finish.
• DICE ROUTINE
A chink-a-chink style dice assembly with a difference. Four dice magically travel between the performer's hands with the last die - the Houdini die - escaping from a small metal box before joining the others.
• SIX CARD REPEAT
Another Dacri-ized version of a magic classic that will keep your audience in stitches. The performer tells the story of one of his first experiences with a magic trick that uses six cards and no matter how many he throws away (or inadvertently drops), he always has six!
• CARD TO MOUTH
The performer demonstrates his ability to seemingly have spectators select any card he wishes. For the big finish, a signed selection is produced from a very unlikely place!
• TAKE A CARD
The performer has four spectators each select a card. Three are found to be Queens but the fourth is a Jack. Turning failure into a magical success, the Jack is changed into the fourth Queen. A great demonstration of the Classic Force for real-world audiences.
• CARD STAB
A card is selected and mistakenly torn by the spectator. One piece of the card is retained by the spectator and the others are discarded in an oatmeal tin. Another card is selected and returned to the deck which is also placed into the tin. The performer introduces a dagger and, after causing the cards to magically jump out of the tin, manages to impale two cards on its blade. One is the second spectator's selection and unbelievably, the other is found to be the first card chosen, magically restored . . . and yes, the spectator's piece fits!
• CLASSIC FORCE DEMO
Steve Dacri's version of the Classic Force has been hailed as one of the best in the business and in this extensive segment, Steve goes into great detail about his handling of this indispensable tool. Every nuance, including the timing, psychology, choreography and the necessary attitude, is discussed and demonstrated. Learn to do this as well as Steve and you'll be performing reputation-making card magic.
• BONUS SECTION
Entertaining segments from several of Steve Dacri's many television appearances. Watch as Steve performs on "The Dinah Shore Show" and "The Merv Griffin Show."

Running Time Approximately 39min

VOLUME 3

• SUCKER EGG & HANKY
A brand-new take on the classic Silk to Egg with comedy, audience participation and a surprising and magical ending. A spectator is brought up to learn how a magic trick is done and ends up seeing some apparently real magic! And, if you think you know this one already, prepare to be fooled badly!
• BUNNIES OVER HEAD
In this version of Slydini's legendary trick, large sponge bunnies (and even a huge sponge ball) are made to vanish right before a seated spectator's eyes, much to their amazement and to the amusement of everyone else in the audience who sees exactly where the objects are going!
• BOWL ROUTINE
Combine Roy Benson's timeless routine with some additional Dacri touches and the result is a routine you'll always use. Sponge balls travel invisibly from the performer's hand to underneath an inverted bowl followed by a magical surprise!
• COINS THROUGH TABLE
Steve learned this from Slydini, streamlined it with some help from Dai Vernon, and now passes along the real work on this classic of coin magic.
• COINS ACROSS
Four half-dollars travel invisibly from one of the performer's hands to the other. Steve's version of the Winged Silver plot can be done completely surrounded, perfect for strolling situations.
• TORN & RESTORED MAGAZINE
The center pages of a magazine are removed, a corner is torn off for verification and the rest of it is torn into small pieces. The performer then restores the pieces and yes, the removed piece fits! Frank Garcia used this to build crowds at a trade show and now it can be yours!
• CHOP CUP
Steve takes you through every step of his one cup and ball routine, complete with two final loads!
• CARD IN PANTS
A signed card magically travels to an impossible, improbable - and deeply personal - place!
• BONUS SECTION
An episode of "Steve Dacri's Magic Notebook," a TV show that Steve produced and starred in. Besides Steve's stage and close-up segments, it also features performances by Dai Vernon (used with permission from the Dai Vernon estate) and Joe Cossari, The King of Cards. You'll also see the complete infomercial that Steve produced for his "Magic Secrets" video magic kit that aired nationally.

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

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

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

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

Also Read: Suge Knight Sentenced to 28 Years in Prison for Fatal 2015 Hit-and-Run

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

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

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

          Joseph Benavidez Makes Quick Return to Face Deiveson Figueiredo at UFC 233      Cache   Translate Page      

Joseph Benavidez TUF 28 Finale

Having recently lost a year and a half of his career to injury, Joseph Benavidez is making up for lost time making a quick turnaround for his next fight.

UFC officials on Tuesday announced that Benavidez would return to the Octagon at UFC 233 on Jan. 26, 2019, in Anaheim, Calif., to face Deiveson Figueiredo.

Benavidez (26-5) sat out the entire year of 2017 and missed much of 2018 with a knee injury. He returned at UFC 225 in June, losing a split decision to Sergio Pettis. He bounced back on Nov. 30 with a first-round stoppage of Alex Perez at the TUF 28 Finale in Las Vegas.

He'll make the quick two-month turnaround as he fights to keep the UFC flyweight division alive by taking on fellow championship contender Figueredo at UFC 233, where champion Henry Cejudo puts his 125-pound belt on the line against bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw in the main event.

Figueiredo (15-0) has made an immediate impact since emerging in the Octagon while Benavidez was on the sidelines in 2017. Having defeated all four of his opponents, he has done so in impressive fashion, finishing three of them by way of knockout, a rarity in the flyweight division.

Figueiredo hopes to further etch his place among the UFC elite by taking out Benavidez, who has been a perennial contender for the better part of the past decade.

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and former dual-division titleholder Conor McGregor will go before the Nevada State Athletic Commission on Dec. 10 to answer for their respective roles in the UFC 229 post-fight melee that broke out on Oct. 6 in Las Vegas.

The incident occurred when Nurmagomedov boiled over with McGregor cornerman Dillon Danis yelling at him after he submitted McGregor. Nurmagomedov lost his cool and vaulted over the cage and onto the arena floor to confront Danis. Now, he'll have to go before the NSAC, which has filed a formal complaint against him and withheld $1 million of his $2 million fight purse.

          BWW Review: MAGIC MIKE LIVE, Hippodrome Casino      Cache   Translate Page      

It's been six years since the release of movie Magic Mike, produced by and starring Channing Tatum as the lead stripper of a Florida strip club. Since then, Magic Mike has spawned a sequel, a live show in Las Vegas in 2017, and now a live show at the Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square, created and directed by Tatum himself.

Thursday evening, and the Matcham Room at the Hippodrome was packed with hundreds of women - and a few men dotted around. Some were eagerly anticipating the upcoming show, while quite a few others were visibly wary and nervous.

Enter MC Sophie Linder-Lee, who brilliantly puts the audience at ease, with her innuendos and conversations with her unicorn spirit guide (who just so happens to sound exactly like Channing Tatum). Linder-Lee reiterated that while there was audience participation throughout the show, if you weren't happy to be grinded on by a young man, just say the safe word 'unicorn' and they'd step away.

There is a vague plotline to the show: Mike (Sebastian Mel Tavier) is a young waiter who wants to learn how to make a woman feel wanted and loved. He learns different methods of seduction thanks to the talented men who accompany him on stage. Choreographers Luke Broadlick and Alison Faulk have together created innovative and exciting routines, which are superbly complemented by Philip Gladwell's spectacular lighting.

There's a lot of talent showcased throughout - and no, that's not a euphemism. From acrobatics with ropes, singing, guitar and piano-playing to dancing, including hip-hop, tap and a stunning water sequence between Mike and Hannah Cleeve - this show has it all. The men (and women) who feature in the production are all phenomenally talented and the mix of music - from "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed SHeeran to "Pony" by Ginuwine - means there's something for everyone.

The audience is, as some might assume, predominantly female, with large groups of women celebrating birthdays or hen parties. Waiters were seen constantly taking orders from each table while women danced in their seats or in the aisles. Female empowerment is a predominant theme and women are constantly told that they're strong, beautiful and powerful. There's even a section which focuses on consent.

It may take a while for some to relax into the show, but the dancers are all respectful and genuinely want to make the women in the audience feel wanted and special. The energy exuded by the men on stage is electrifying, further enhancing the experience and encouraging even the more reserved to eventually try and catch a man's eye. By the end of the night, even those who were seemingly unsure at the start of the evening were clapping and cheering with the best of them.

Channing Tatum himself said that while he's fit and healthy, the dancers in Magic Mike have incredible stamina - although he hasn't ruled out a return to the stage, so there's always the possibility...

          Las Vegas Couple Beaten & Stabbed In Violent Hate Crime      Cache   Translate Page      

A gay couple in Las Vegas, Nevada, were the target of a violent hate crime that sent them both to the hospital.

Charles Clements told local news affiliate FOX5 that when he picked his boyfriend Vincent up from work last Thursday night, they had no idea they were followed home.

As he was unlocking the front door of their home, Clements heard Vincent call his name.

“I was about to unlock the door, the next thing I hear, he’s calling my name,” Clements said. “I come back, I see my boyfriend fighting with the guy.”

As two men attacked Vincent, the assault moved to the front porch of their home where a glass table was knocked over and shattered. It was then that one of the attackers reached for a shard of glass.

“He picked up the glass and I was like, ‘Don’t do that,’” says Clements. “He started stabbing my boyfriend in the back. The guy was kicking him in his ribs.”

According to Clements, the attack drew the attention of neighbors who watched from a distance but did nothing to intervene. “Neighbors, everybody just looking,” he said. “Nobody called the police.”

After the two men got in their car and drove away, Clements realized he was bleeding. At the hospital, they learned that the attackers had punctured Vincent’s lung and broken several ribs.

After calling 911, Vincent told police he recognized one of the men as someone who works with him at Walmart.

“It was all about gay bashing,” Clements told FOX5. “The guy came up to my boyfriend’s job, calling him an abomination, calling him fag.”

“I never been through nothing like this in my life,” he added. “I was so scared.”

Clements is now frightened to continue living in their present home, “I don’t want to be in this apartment no more because I’m afraid they’re going to come back,”

Clements’ uncle is currently helping the couple to find a new place to live.

Police are investigating the incident but no news on any arrests at this time.

A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to help with the couple’s hospital bills and moving expenses.




          For the Record: Wrangler NFR Round 8      Cache   Translate Page      

Saddle bronc rider Ryder Wright is known for going big at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. During his Las Vegas debut in 2016 he won every round he placed in, Rounds 1-4 and Round 9, to rank 12th at the 2016 Wrangler NFR. The following year he won the world title and set two round records. The Utah cowboy matched his dad, Cody, for the Round 6 record with 89 points. Two days later, he made his first ride to exceed 90 points with a Round 8, record-setting, 92-point ride. Ryder Wright went on to rake in $185,577 at the 2017 Wrangler NFR while winning the world title. Now, he’s heading back to the Thomas & Mack Center after winning some of the biggest rodeos of the 2018 season such as: • The Washington (Puyallup) State Fair Pro Rodeo • California Rodeo Salinas • The Horse Heaven / Kennewick (Wash.)

          Leme May Only Get Better in 2019      Cache   Translate Page      

By: Justin Felisko December 04, 2018 PUEBLO, Colo. – It has only been four years since Jose Vitor Leme began to consistently get aboard high-caliber bulls in Brazil. It has only been 402 days since Leme made his United States debut at the 2017 Velocity Tour Finals in Las Vegas. Regardless, Leme has become one of the best bull riders in the world in a very short period, and he is now a potential favorite to win the 2019 PBR World Championship. The 22-year-old got off to a fast start this past Saturday by going 2-for-2 to win the Corpus Christi Chute Out Velocity Tour event, picking up 195 world points to move into the No. 2 position in the very, very early 2019 world standings. Leme earned the victory with the kind of bull ride you would normally find at an Unleash The Beast event when the third-year pro rode Sosa’s Alley Cat for 91.5 points. He is only the third rider to reach 8 seconds on the bovine athlete in 34 outs at all levels of competition. Alley Cat had bucked off 11 consecutive riders, and he gave Leme all he had in his arsenal inside the American Bank Center. Leme, though,... Continue Reading

          Trevor Brazile Says Goodbye to Full Time Rodeo      Cache   Translate Page      

Courtesy Kendra Santos LAS VEGAS – An unparalleled era of rodeo excellence will end at this year’s Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, as King of the Cowboys Trevor Brazile closes the book on full-time professional rodeo competition. Though we have not seen the last of the winningest cowboy of all time, the 23-time Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association world champion will no longer compete at an NFR-qualifying pace. Brazile’s rodeo schedule will be greatly reduced in 2019. With some of the new, big-money opportunities available in rodeo today, anything is mathematically possible. But the NFR will no longer be his focus. Motivating this major move away from full-time competition is Brazile’s “why” – his family – wife, Shada; son, Treston, 11; and daughters, Style, 8, and Swayi, 3. “My priorities have officially changed,” said Brazile, 42, who calls Decatur, Texas, home. “The way I divide my time has been trending toward where we are today for a while now. Though we rodeoed together as a family, rodeo was taking a lot of my time and attention. Home-schooling our kids is the only thing that made it work as long as it did. Now that they’re in public school, the days of being... Continue Reading

ProRodeo Hall of Famer Keith Martin was recognized as the 2018 ProRodeo Legend during the 11th annual Wrangler Gold Buckle Gala at the South Point Grand Ballroom in Las Vegas, Dec. 3. Martin was selected as this year’s ProRodeo Legend due to his 50 years of volunteer work that strengthened the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo and the PRCA. This wasn’t the first time Martin had been honored for his contributions to the sport, as he was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame as a rodeo notable in 2011. “I think everyone in this room understands volunteerism and what it means and working with people and raising money for causes,” Martin said at the Gold Buckle Gala, adding that many of the people who helped him along the way were present. “The end result is you put on a show for the people, and it was a lot of fun. You have to never forget that you have to have a good time in what you are doing. And, if you do that, you will accomplish the goal. That is an important part of volunteering.

          Ronn David McPhatter To Perform SON OF LEGENDS Concert      Cache   Translate Page      

Ronn David McPhatter, the son of two rhythm and blues greats, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Ruth Brown and Clyde McPhatter, will perform his new show "The Son of Legends" at the Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood on Thursday, Dec. 27 at 8:30 PM. McPhatter has toured for several years as lead singer of the Drifters, the group that his famous father led back in the 1950's.

He has performed at the White House on three occasions, at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, and at Boston Symphony Hall, as well as toured throughout the world. He portrayed Tony Williams of the Platters opposite Halle Berry in the film "Why Do Fools Fall in Love," and also appeared in "Shake, Rattle and Rock" with Renee Zellweger, "Permanent Record" with Keanu Reeves, and "The Five Heartbeats" with Robert Townsend. He is also an accomplished songwriter and incorporates his original material into his family's world-renowned repertoire.

Ronn was raised by his mother, but was never told the true identity of his famous father until he was grown. His new solo act pays tribute to both of his parents, uniting the sass and class of Ruth Brown with the sultry voice of Clyde McPhatter.

Ruth Brown was one of the first stars of Atlantic Records, known as "The House That Ruth Built," and her early R&B hits, such as "Teardrops From My Eyes," "5-10-15 Hours," "What a Dream," and "Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean," helped lead to the birth of rock and roll. Her career had a major resurgence in the 1980's and 90's, when she made her Broadway debut in "Black and Blue," winning the 1989 Tony Award for "Best Actress in a Musical."

That same year, she won a Grammy for "Best Female Jazz Vocalist" for her album "Blues on Broadway," and received the Pioneer Award from the Rhythm and Blues Foundation, which she helped organize. She was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, and was still performing in 2006, when she passed away at age 78.

Clyde McPhatter achieved fame as lead singer of Billy Ward's Dominoes and the Drifters, before going solo. He was known for his good looks and smooth, emotional voice.

His great hits include "Treasure of Love," "A Lover's Question" and "Honey Love," and his recording of "Money Honey" was voted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999. He died in 1972 at the young age of 39, but became the first performer to be inducted twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-posthumously in 1987 as himself and again in 1998 as one of the Drifters. He was also honored with his own U.S. postage stamp in 1993.

          Tyson Fury done? Bookies slash odds on Fury retiring after controversial loss to Deontay Wilder      Cache   Translate Page      

Tyson Fury has set his sights on rematching Deontay Wilder for the WBC world heavyweight title next year, but according to one bookmaker the former champion could opt to hang up his gloves instead.

Fury was controversially denied a second reign as heavyweight champion as three judges somehow combined to rule his fight with Wilder a draw on Saturday night, and following the bout he wasted no time in calling for a rematch with the unbeaten title-holder.

Bookmaker SportNation is 1/8 that the rematch does take place in 2019, but given Fury’s unpredictability there has been backing for him to call time on his in-ring career instead, and that has forced the bookie to slash the odds on him retiring next year to just 9/2 from 10/1.

“When it comes to Fury being unconventional, all bets are off,” SportNation spokeswoman Georgia Wilson told Bettingpro.com.

“Whilst fans and bookies alike would be devastated should he call time his career, the odds suggest he might not want to run the risk of being robbed again.”

SportNation is offering odds on the destination for the rematch though, with Fury and promoter Frank Warren eager to see it take place in the United Kingdom. 

Wembley Stadium – which has become a ‘home’ to the other heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua – is the 4/9 favourite ahead of Las Vegas at 7/4, while Old Trafford is a 10/1 shot after Manchester United fan Fury suggested it as a possible destination to his promoter.

          Ronn David McPhatter To Perform SON OF LEGENDS Concert      Cache   Translate Page      

Ronn David McPhatter, the son of two rhythm and blues greats, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Ruth Brown and Clyde McPhatter, will perform his new show "The Son of Legends" at the Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood on Thursday, Dec. 27 at 8:30 PM. McPhatter has toured for several years as lead singer of the Drifters, the group that his famous father led back in the 1950's.

He has performed at the White House on three occasions, at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, and at Boston Symphony Hall, as well as toured throughout the world. He portrayed Tony Williams of the Platters opposite Halle Berry in the film "Why Do Fools Fall in Love," and also appeared in "Shake, Rattle and Rock" with Renee Zellweger, "Permanent Record" with Keanu Reeves, and "The Five Heartbeats" with Robert Townsend. He is also an accomplished songwriter and incorporates his original material into his family's world-renowned repertoire.

Ronn was raised by his mother, but was never told the true identity of his famous father until he was grown. His new solo act pays tribute to both of his parents, uniting the sass and class of Ruth Brown with the sultry voice of Clyde McPhatter.

Ruth Brown was one of the first stars of Atlantic Records, known as "The House That Ruth Built," and her early R&B hits, such as "Teardrops From My Eyes," "5-10-15 Hours," "What a Dream," and "Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean," helped lead to the birth of rock and roll. Her career had a major resurgence in the 1980's and 90's, when she made her Broadway debut in "Black and Blue," winning the 1989 Tony Award for "Best Actress in a Musical."

That same year, she won a Grammy for "Best Female Jazz Vocalist" for her album "Blues on Broadway," and received the Pioneer Award from the Rhythm and Blues Foundation, which she helped organize. She was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, and was still performing in 2006, when she passed away at age 78.

Clyde McPhatter achieved fame as lead singer of Billy Ward's Dominoes and the Drifters, before going solo. He was known for his good looks and smooth, emotional voice.

His great hits include "Treasure of Love," "A Lover's Question" and "Honey Love," and his recording of "Money Honey" was voted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999. He died in 1972 at the young age of 39, but became the first performer to be inducted twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-posthumously in 1987 as himself and again in 1998 as one of the Drifters. He was also honored with his own U.S. postage stamp in 1993.

          Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Are Pushing a Bold New Plan to Tackle Climate Change      Cache   Translate Page      

Last week, Donald Trump offered a perfect encapsulation of the political Twilight Zone that is his presidency when he dismissed his own administration’s dire report on climate change, claiming simply, “I don’t believe it.

That report was perhaps the most alarming warning yet of the imminent havoc presented by our climate crisis, predicting stark falls in GDP and economic activity, massive species die offs, flooding, increases in extreme weather events, sea level rise that threatens the very existence of U.S. coastal cities and rising temperatures that could make Chicago’s climate rival that of Phoenix or Las Vegas.

But while President Trump glibly writes off the predictions of over 1,000 experts spanning 13 federal agencies, a newly ascendant progressive cohort in government is rallying support for a bold alternative: A Green New Deal.

That proposal, which calls for transitioning to 100 percent renewable energy through a colossal jobs creation program, has been championed by two of the most well-known insurgents in Congress, incoming Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). The progressive stalwarts shared the stage together Monday night at a packed town hall event entitled “Solving Our Climate Crisis.”   

The gathering follows previous national town hall events put on by Sanders’ camp in recent years which have focussed on Medicare for All, income inequality and foreign policy. These town halls have frequently drawn over a million viewers, rivaling—and sometimes eclipsing—the viewership of cable news stations.

But besides the topic area of discussion, early on Sanders made clear what made his event distinct from what would be seen on corporate media: “This event is not sponsored by Exxon Mobil, nor is it sponsored or paid for by the Koch brothers.”

This is no small thing. A report from watchdog group Public Citizen earlier this year shows that, on the whole, mainstream media outlets consistently avoid in-depth reporting on climate change. Many of these outlets also receive substantial financial support from fossil fuel companies, whether through corporate advertising, grants or other forms.

Over the course of the 2016 election, mainstream outlets, including ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox, significantly decreased any mention of the issue on their programs compared to previous years. And the 2018 midterms continued to see barely any serious discussion of climate change on cable news. When it is covered, pundits frequently mention climate change only as it relates to Trump’s shifting policies, without offering any type of thorough exploration of the issue and its consequences.

Sanders’ town hall, then, provided something rarely seen in U.S. media: experts and politicians talking in depth about the dangers and potential solutions to the climate crisis. And while the tenor was rightly sober, it did provide a rousing call to arms for those prepared to take on the existential climate emergency we are all facing.

Taking on the fossil fuel industry

The Trump administration’s climate assessment was not the only paper on climate change’s devastating effects to come out in recent months. In early October, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a groundbreaking report that laid out, among other things, that world governments have just 12 years left to lower fossil fuel emissions by a staggering 45 percent to avoid a global temperature rise of 1.5 degrees Celsius and the resulting risks of devastating drought, extreme heat, floods and mass poverty.

Barring efforts of monumental proportion to slow climate change, the report’s authors predict that we are currently on track to see temperature rises of 3 degrees Celsius, which could spell untold horrors for humanity and all other species that occupy the only known life-supporting planet in the entire vast expanse of the universe.

One of that report’s authors, Dr. Brenda Ekwurzel, joined as the first guest on Sanders’ town hall meeting. Ekwurzel described the major finding of the IPCC report: “Climate change is not some problem in the distant future: It is here, it is now, and it is happening in every part of the country.”

She continued to describe some of the impact of the continuing crisis. “We may be unleashing a destabilization in the West Antarctic ice sheet which could cause massive sea level rise. Most people in the world live near the coasts around the world, which means many places would be inundated.” Sanders’ responded, “It means communities where millions of people live will be underwater. And in terms of national security issues, it means mass migrations of people.”

When it comes to the economic impact, Ekwurzel said, “We find that if carbon emissions continue unabated that the U.S. could endure annual costs of over $100 billion in some sectors.” She went on to explain that by reducing carbon emissions, we could lower that figure by half or even more, while also saving innumerable lives.

When asked how we can individually help tackle climate change, Ekwurzel began by advising to “start with your own life and what you can do,” but then quickly transitioned toward influencing those in power. “Absolutely ask your leaders ‘what are you doing to reduce emissions globally?’” she urged.

Sanders followed up with an even more direct appeal to target the principal perpetrators of climate collapse. “The time is late, and that means countries all over the world are going to have to stand up and take on the fossil fuel industry if we are going to leave our kids and our grandchildren a planet that is habitable. This is a crisis situation. It is unprecedented and we have to act in unprecedented ways.”

Capitalism can’t save us

Such an explanation underpins the argument for a Green New Deal—a wildly ambitious plan that would transform not just the energy sector in the United States, but also the functioning of the entire economy. The proposal would involve modernizing infrastructure, investing in renewables and overhauling food, water and energy systems while creating millions of high-quality jobs.

Based around the goal of achieving carbon neutrality, the plan involves the creation of a Select Committee in the House which would, according to a resolution drafted by Ocasio-Cortez, put together a “detailed national, industrial, economic mobilization plan” to achieve “economic and environmental justice and equality.”

While this may sound like just another functionary task, as Naomi Klein explains at The Intercept, the current plan calls for the committee’s recommendations to be released ahead of the 2020 elections, which could make it a test and rallying cry for all progressive candidates that cycle.

Not everyone is a fan of the plan, however. In the recent Wall Street Journal op-ed entitled “Stopping the Socialist Resurgence,” GOP strategist and former George W. Bush whisperer Karl Rove criticized Ocasio-Cortez’s rhetoric around the proposal as “sounding too much like a Maoist functionary.” Elsewhere in the piece, Rove raises the red flags of increasing support for Medicare for All, student debt relief and increased taxes on the rich, calling on his Republican brethren to prepare themselves to come out victors in the grand battle of ideas.

But while Rove is rightly scandalized by the rise in socialist ideas, he misses that the very policies he hopes to contest in the court of public opinion are already backed by most Americans. When it comes to Medicare for All, 70 percent are on board. Student debt relief is widely supported. Three-quarters of Americans are behind raising taxes on the wealthy. And when it comes to a Green New Deal, Data for Progress found that among eligible and enthusiastic voters, more than half “said they would be more likely to support a candidate running on a green job guarantee.”

Embracing these large-scale progressive attitudes and pursuing state intervention in the energy sector is widely believed to be the only way to stave off the worst effects of climate change while creating equity in our response to the crisis—and the Green New Deal offers a clear path forward.

Beyond centrist solutions

Both climate activists and researchers say we need to immediately wean ourselves off of fossil fuels and leave future resources in the ground. This approach, far more radical than anything seriously discussed in mainstream energy reporting, served as the basis for Ocasio-Cortez’s presentation at Monday’s town hall.

Ocasio-Cortez, an open democratic socialist, began by pushing back against the most frequent criticism of a Green New Deal program: its alleged negative effects on the economy. “It’s just plain wrong, the idea that we are somehow going to lose economic activity. It’s not just possible that we’ll create jobs and economic activity by transitioning to renewable energy,” she said. “It’s inevitable.”

“It’s inevitable that we can use the transition to 100 percent renewable energy as the vehicle to truly deliver and establish economic, social and racial justice in the United States of America. That is our proposal.”

She went on to compare the challenges presented by the current moment to those faced by past U.S. leaders who helped push through major accomplishments under daunting odds. “This is going to be the Great Society, the moon shot, the Civil Rights Movement of our generation,” she said.

Ocasio-Cortez, who last month participated in a protest outside House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi’s office demanding Democrats push for a Green New Deal, presented the case in clear moral terms. “We’ve amassed some of the largest amounts of wealth in American history, but we have never seen so many people struggling and living paycheck to paycheck in the way that we are today,” she explained.

“When we talk about transition, we talk about just transitions. Transitioning to renewable energy that provides justice to all people who are impacted. That includes fully funding the pensions these coal minors are due, of which they’re being stripped. For younger people, that means providing educational opportunities for them to transition to renewable energy jobs.”

She went on to lay out why the type of traditional centrist environmental policies of means testing and half-measures won’t cut it in rising to the demands of this moment. “When we try to solve this piecemeal, we’re not going to get it solved in time. That’s why we’re asking for this really ambitious, singular plan. And I believe that the progressive movement is the only movement with answers right now, that is drawing from the lessons of history.”

That ambitious plan—backed by groups such as the Sunrise Movement and 350.org—is beginning to look like less of a fringe idea and more like a policy moving into the mainstream of American politics. In addition to Ocasio-Cortez, 18 other House members now support the creation of a Select Committee for the Green New Deal. And Sanders is gaining support in his chamber as well: On Monday, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Or.) signed on board with the plan. 

Of course, any policy along the lines of a Green New Deal will surely be bitterly opposed by the fossil fuel industry and the interests that it benefits. After all, the entire plan is premised on threatening that industry’s profits and its continued domination over the U.S. economy.

Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, an 18-year-old indigenous environmental activist, hip hop artist and youth director of the conservation group Earth Guardians, used his platform at the town hall to lay out why countering the coming attacks from oil and gas companies on bold climate action will require a change in both thinking and in political incentives.

“Historically it has been politically risky to stand up to the fossil fuel industry as politicians,” Martinez said. “I think our generation is very different. Yes, we are the future and have the most at stake, but we are also here now. That also gives us the perspective of pushing the agenda so that it’s politically risky to not stand up to the fossil fuel industry.”

It’s true that a battle between environmental activists and powerful fossil fuel interests has been waged for decades, and time after time, the fossil fuel industry has come out on top. As 350.org founder Bill McKibben explained during the town hall, “This has got to be the moment. In the end, what changes things is movements. We won this argument 25 years ago. But the fight so far we’ve lost, because fights are about power and money. And now we’ve got to bring power ourselves.”

The only option is to win

What makes this moment different is that, for the first time in recent memory, there is a growing clarion call for a response that goes beyond the limits imposed by our economic system.

Four years ago, Naomi Klein wrote in her book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate, “We are stuck because the actions that would have given us the best chance of averting climate catastrophe—and would benefit the vast majority—are extremely threatening to an elite minority that has a stranglehold over our economy, our political process, and most of our major media outlets…. Right now, the triumph of market logic, with its ethos of domination and fierce competition, is paralyzing almost all serious efforts to respond to climate change.”

She went on to pose the question of whether our society is up to the task of mitigating the climate crisis and building a sustainable future. “Is it possible? Absolutely. Is it possible without challenging the fundamental logic of deregulated capitalism? Not a chance.”

That confrontation with the forces of extractive capitalism has been made possible by a multifaceted movement of working-class, indigenous and intergenerational activists that, through dedicated organizing, has laid the groundwork for the Green New Deal. From the anti-pipeline protests at Standing Rock to the Sunrise Movement’s demonstration urging Pelosi to back bold climate action, years of creative activism has set the stage for this moment.

And the policy is making progress in the halls of Congress thanks to the leadership of politicians free of oil industry funding who are grounded in working-class, frontline communities—representatives like Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.).

This forward momentum is why, in her recent Intercept piece, Klein calls the Green New Deal proposal “game-changing” and says “I feel more optimistic about our collective chances of averting climate breakdown than I have in years.”

In 2014, the same year that Klein published This Changes Everything, the late science fiction writer Ursula K. Le Guin gave a speech at the National Book Awards where she famously said, “We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable—but then, so did the divine right of kings.”

The idea that within four years, grassroots energy and political support could begin coalescing behind a policy that challenges market fundamentalism head on could not have been predicted by either Klein or Le Guin. But such calls to rise to this challenge helped open the political space that has made the current moment possible.

There is still a climate denier in the White House whose Environmental Protection Agency is staffed with fossil fuel lobbyists while the Republican Party on the whole continues to reject science and ferociously fight any legislation that would help protect the climate.

Yet more and more Americans—and political leaders—are beginning to align with the perspective laid out by Sen. Sanders in his recent book Where We Go from Here—Two Years in the Resistance: “To sacrifice the future of the planet for the short-term profits of the fossil fuel industry is unspeakably selfish, outrageous and unforgivable.”

After hearing Ocasio-Cortez’s call for courage in the face of climate change’s existential threats, Van Jones remarked that he had tried to help usher in such a Green New Deal-style approach during his time in the Obama administration, before being derailed by the right-wing. But, he continued, “I think you’re gonna get it done.”

Ocasio-Cortez then turned to the crowd—which included activists from the Sunrise Movement and other climate justice groups—and corrected him: “We’re gonna get it done. We’re gonna get it done.”

          First BTG Sentry Bioconvertible IVC Filter Implanted in U.S.      Cache   Translate Page      
First BTG Sentry Bioconvertible IVC Filter Implanted in U.S.

December 4, 2018 — BTG plc announced the first patients outside of a clinical trial have been successfully implanted with the BTG Sentry device, a bioconvertible inferior vena cava (IVC) filter. The BTG Sentry filter is designed to provide protection from pulmonary embolism (PE) for the period of transient risk and then bioconvert to leave a patent, unobstructed IVC lumen. This eliminates the need to retrieve and addresses the typical filter-related complications associated with conventional IVC filters.

Ayad K.M. Agha, M.D., director of interventional radiology and an interventional radiologist at Cardiovascular Interventional Radiology Centers in Phoenix, who performed the procedure on one of his patients, said: “Traditional IVC filters are sometimes associated with a variety of concerns. Placing the BTG Sentry filter gives me confidence in reducing potential complications seen with conventional filters. Using the BTG Sentry IVC filter only requires one visit which means my patient doesn’t have to worry about coming back to make sure the filter is retrieved. This is better for the patient and their families and removes the risk of any complications that may arise on a follow-up procedure”

The BTG Sentry filter is supported by two years of data available through the SENTRY Trial. The data was recently presented on podium at VIVA in Las Vegas, and demonstrated no instances of filter tilt, migration, embolization, fracture or IVC perforation through 24-months of imaging-intensive follow-up.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance for the Sentry device was obtained in 2017.

          ¿Nuevo chiche para 2019?      Cache   Translate Page      

A pocas semanas de que se termine la temporada 2018, la Fórmula 1 ya piensa en 2019 y en cómo mejorar las transmisiones para que los televidentes puedan disfrutar aún más de las carreras. Por eso, los directivos de la Máxima tienen la idea de sumar gráficos que usen inteligencia artificial.

Durante la conferencia de aprendizaje de AWS re: Invent hace unos días en Las Vegas, el director de motorsport de F1, Ross Brawn, dijo que los planes avanzaban para tener mejores gráficos en 2019.

"Para la próxima temporada estamos expandiendo 'F1 Insights' para todos nuestros televidentes, al integrar aún más datos de telemetría como la posición del auto, la condición de los neumáticos, incluso el clima, por lo que podremos usar 'Sagemaker' para predecir el rendimiento del coche, las paradas en boxes y la estrategia de carrera", expresó Brawn.

Y agregó: "[Habrá] algunas nuevas adiciones emocionantes de inteligencia artificial en la transmisión de F1 TV del próximo año".

En su discurso, Brawn dio tres ejemplos de cómo se aplicarán los nuevos gráficos en transmisiones de carreras en vivo.

El primero es dar una mejor comprensión del estado de los neumáticos de cada piloto, para que el público entienda mejor si un piloto sufre de recalentamiento o si viene sin problemas.

"Sabemos que alguien está en problemas: sus neumáticos traseros se están recalentando. Podemos ver la historia de los neumáticos y cómo han funcionado y dónde está en la carrera, y el aprendizaje automático puede ayudarnos a aplicar un análisis adecuado de la situación. Podemos llevar esa información a los fanáticos y hacerles entender si el piloto está en problemas o si puede manejar la situación. Estas son ideas que los equipos siempre tuvieron, pero las llevaremos a los fanáticos y les mostraremos lo que está sucediendo".

La categoría también tiene en mente ofrecer a los fanáticos un gráfico para mostrar una predicción de las chances que existan de que se produzca un sobrepaso.

Brawn dijo: “El correr rueda a rueda es la esencia, un aspecto crítico del deporte y ahora, con el aprendizaje automático y el uso de datos en vivo y datos históricos, podemos hacer predicciones sobre lo que sucederá. El gráfico de la derecha muestra lo que esperamos suceda en este evento. Lo bueno de esto es que los equipos no tienen todos estos datos. Nosotros como F1 conocemos los datos de ambos autos y podemos hacer esta comparación, algo que nunca se ha hecho antes".

El último ejemplo que dio a conocer Brawn fue un análisis de parada en boxes, para mostrar a los hinchas la implicación estratégica de lo que pasó: "Parar en el momento adecuado y colocar el neumático correcto puede hacerte ganar o perder una carrera. Vamos a tomar todos los datos y darles a los fanáticos una idea de por qué se detuvieron y cuándo se detuvieron. Y con ello la pregunta sobre si ¿Han hecho el equipo y el piloto la estrategia correcta?".


          ERIC CHURCH - DESPERATE MAN (Emi, 2018)      Cache   Translate Page      
“The Chief”, il soprannome mutuato dal suo album più famoso, con cui Eric Church viene chiamato dai fan, è uno che vende tantissimo e che si piazza sempre in cima alle classifiche di genere (country) e non solo. Non è quindi un caso che Desperate Man, a circa due mesi dalla sua pubblicazione, abbia raggiunto per la quinta volta in carriera la top ten di Billboard 200 (quinta posizione) e si sia aggiudicato la prima piazza delle country charts.
Church, si sa, è uno che veste la propria musica di mainstream e azzecca singoli di facile presa che intasano i canali radiofonici statunitensi (si pensi alla super hit Springsteen, omaggio esplicito alla sua principale fonte di ispirazione). Ciò nonostante, si è sempre tenuto distante da certi indigeribili stereotipi nashvilliani, e la sua musica, per quanto fruibile ai più, non è mai suonata artefatta, suggerendo semmai quella genuinità che il personaggio, umile, cordiale e alla mano, ha sempre dimostrato a dispetto del grande successo.
Eric, poi, non è uno che si adagia sugli allori e continua a ripetere una formula vincente ma frusta: il suo ultimo Mr. Misundarstood (2015), ad esempio, sfoderava un piglio southern funk e un songwriting virato verso la black music a dir poco inaspettati.
Ecco, allora, che Desperate Man segna un ulteriore spostamento di prospettiva, rielabora in modo mai così scarno i contenuti dei dischi precedenti, e si sofferma a riflettere sulla caducità dell’uomo e sulle oscure trame del destino. Lo spunto, da cui nasce il disco, è infatti un terribile fatto di cronaca. Probabilmente molti di voi si ricorderanno cosa successe il primo ottobre del 2017 a Las Vegas: durante il Route 91 Festival, il sessantaquattrenne Stephen Paddock, ha aperto il fuoco con armi automatiche da una camera dell'hotel Mandalay Bay, sparando sulla folla del concerto, causando 58 vittime e ferendo altri 500 spettatori. Un episodio che toccò profondamente il cuore di Church, tanto che tre giorni dopo quell’evento, pubblicò Why Not Me, struggente omaggio a Sonny Melton, una delle vittime dell’eccidio, che si era recato a Las Vegas proprio per ascoltare il suo idolo Eric Church.
Quella canzone, così commossa e credibile, è stata l’abbrivio per arrivare a Desperate Man, che fin dal titolo, esplicito e senza filtri, racconta chiaramente come si sia sentita l’America di fronte a un evento tanto esiziale per il paese e la musica country. Sul disco, però, Why Not Me non compare, né si accenna in alcun modo a quei fatti di sangue: Church non è solo una delle figure più amate dagli appassionati di country, ma è anche un hombre vertical, che non si sarebbe mai permessa di sfruttare un evento così emotivamente sconvolgente per implementare le vendite del proprio lavoro. Nello stesso modo, Eric tace su un altro fatto che gli ha sconvolto la vita, e cioè la morte del fratello Brandon, deceduto qualche giorno dopo la registrazione del disco.
Eppure, nonostante non faccia cenno a nessuno dei due eventi, Desperate Man è un disco che tracima di emozioni e sensibilità, che guarda in faccia alla vita e ai drammi dell’esistenza, che riflette sul fatto che spesso il vero nemico dell’uomo si annida proprio nella sua testa (Monsters). La veracità di Church è in grado di rendere universali riflessioni intime e private, e di trasmettere credibilità anche quando affronta temi politici, come avviene nella conclusiva Drowning Man, graffiante e sincera presa di posizione su un paese alla deriva, in cui lo Zio Sam ha voltato le spalle a Lady Liberty, o nel blues cupo dell’iniziale The Snake, il serpente come simbolo di uno Stato che ghermisce senza pietà i più deboli.
E’ un disco asciutto, Desperate Man, attraverso il quale Church propone il piatto forte della casa (le ballate col cuore in mano, come la dolcissima Some Of It, o l’agrodolce Hippie Radio), ribadisce il mood del suo lavoro precedente (l’incandescente r’n’b di Hangin’ Around), gioca con le citazione (la title track ruba smaccatamente il groove di Sympathy For The Devil degli Stones, Solid si apre con sensazioni pinkfloydiane) e imbraccia la chitarra elettrica per canzoni mai così ispide e sentite (la citata Drowning Man e Higher Wire).
Suona strano dirlo di un artista che in patria è considerato una sorta di eroe nazionale e che ha venduto milioni di dischi, ma Church, disco dopo disco, sta acquisendo quella maturità e quella autorevolezza che, nonostante le hit e gli stadi pieni, all’inizio di carriera erano mancate. Desperate Man è di sicuro l’album più spigoloso di Church, ma in qualche modo anche il più sentito e denso di emozioni. Un disco che sembra un piccolo disco, ma che in realtà è destinato a restare nel tempo e ad essere considerato la vetta artistica del songwriter originario di Granite Falls.

          Do You Socialize With The Gays That Are 'Not That Kind Of Gay'?      Cache   Translate Page      

Which one of these things is doing its own thing ...

Do you sometimes have that earworm from Sesame Street when you go out to the club?  That gay is just a little different than the rest of us. He's not like the others. May he be covered in glitter from head to toe, or maybe its you and your friends that are all shiny while he's in his Aberzombie shirt. 

Or are you that friend that sticks out like a sore thumb because you're the "different one." 

Michael Henry speaks on the topic of that friend that is just NOT THAT KIND OF GAY. You know, the friend in the group that doesn't check 7 out of the top 10 boxes on the "Stereotypical Gay Traits and Activities List."  Have a listen and look see. 

 

 

Is this a slippery slope of a topic to talk about? I've been witness too often to discussions that turn ugly about this topic where the angry gay mob would go after the ironed black t-shirt wearing guy and exclaim HETERONORMATIVE, INTERNALIZED HOMOPHOBIA, ASHAMED OF BEING GAY!  Would they be right?  It conjures up memories of the people that were happy to proclaim that they do not watch Game of Thrones like they are better than everyone, they are not lemmings, they are not falling into the ruts society has provided. Can't wait for those holier than thou people to proclaim their whatervertheythinkitis-ness come next April.

Do you think the Sachin (man in black) was proud to NOT be doing those stereotypically gay things? Did he choose NOT to do those things Michael was doing because they were "too gay?" Or was he just stating a fact that he just doesn't do them due to lack of interest and not avoidance? 

I like watching football and I like watching hockey, but when people find that out, I almost think it's like a BIG GAY BETRAYAL or they need to adjust the Kinsey rating they had in their head for me. But they usually have no problem asking me to help with physical labor, navigate, or even be the one that always drives either at home or on vacations.

Where do we gays start on that Kinsey scale with friends, family, coworkers? When they find out we are gay, which gay social calendar pops into their heads? Michael's or Sachin's?  I honestly believe that when people think of gays, they do think of the Michael more than the Sachin.  I mean, we all watch RPDR, right?  For those of you that don't, RPDR stands for RuPaul's Drag Race.

Recently, one of our many contributing writers wrote a post about why he feels Will and Grace should be canceled.  It put some people's hands at our throats! There are some die hard fans out there.  The responses made us think for a second that W&G is the GoT of the gay world. 

But as managing editor, I ask the writers to include in their post a statement similar to the following if they are doing a piece that is heavy with opinion.

This post was created by one of our Contributing Writers and does not reflect the opinion of Instinct Magazine or the other Contributing Writers when it comes to this subject.

Some responded to seeing that statement, "Why the hell is Instinct posting something that doesn't reflect the opinion of the magazine?" 

We have about 9 contributing writers from ages 20 to 47, living in NYC, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Fort Lauderdale/Miami, Nashville, Las Vegas, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Liverpool, UK, and are Latino, African-American, White, and unidentified.  The thing is, we as the contributing writers are all NOT THE SAME KIND OF GAY. 

There have been times where I've had to handle very angry and pointed comments, emails, and tweets being fired against the magazine because the opinion shared by the writer was not unanimously accepted and was more in alignment with maybe 20% of the LGBTQ+ community.  And many of those times I didn't agree with the writer either!  But are we going to take the gay card away from "family" that don't watch RPDR? Do we walk away from the gays that differ in stance or opinion? Do we say, "I got the Green and Blue ... the R-O-Y-P gays can just go away!"

I'm happy that I don't have a writing family of just THAT KIND OF GAY.  Although a staff of all Michaels or all Sachins would be interesting, I like our variety. They get me hot under the collar some times, but they as well represent a spectrum of opinions, likes, dislikes, ages, ethnicity, and so on.

So before you judge so harshly which one of these things is not like the other, maybe you shouldn't be THAT KIND OF GAY, the one that thinks everyone needs to be just like you.

But then again, Sesame Street did have some faults in its presentations once in a while, too.

          Terry Gilliam, Bernardo Bertolucci, Isaki Lacuesta y Stephen Frears protagonizan el curso de la Filmoteca      Cache   Translate Page      
Buen cine para todos los gustos. Dicho así parece fácil, pero basta con echar un vistazo a la programación que la Filmoteca de Cataluña ha elaborado para la próxima temporada para convenir que la cosa tiene sus complicaciones. Porque, como explica el director del centro, Esteve Riambau, tiene que haber cine clásico y cine contemporáneo que no llega a las pantallas comerciales, sí, pero también películas como vehículo de intervención social y herramienta de diálogo con otras disciplinas artísticas. Un menú que, de la teoría a la práctica, se traducirá en 2019 en ciclos retrospectivos dedicados a Stephen Frears, Barbet Schroeder, Krzysztof Kieślowski, Icíar Bollaín, Bernardo Bertolucci y Roman Polanski, entre otros. Un «castillo de cartas» con muchos equilibrios, en palabras de Riambau, bajo el que se esconde un año de «buen cine para todos los gustos y desde una mirada abierta y universal». El objetivo, apuntan los responsables de la Filmoteca, es mantener es línea ascendente y superar los 142.000 espectadores que han pasado por la sala del Raval durante 2018 -un 8,2% más que en 2017-, por lo que la temporada arranca fuerte, recuperando en enero la retrospectiva antológica que el Pompidou parisino dedica estos días a Isaki Lacuesta y desvelando la faceta como fotógrafo del actor Jeff Bridges. En febrero, el director francés Barbet Schroeder viajará a Barcelona para apadrinar un ciclo con algunos de sus mejores títulos, mientras que en marzo el turno será para Terry Gilliam, quien llega «con día y hora para quitarse la espina del estreno comercial de su "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote"». Otros títulos del británico como «Brazil» o «Miedo y asco en Las Vegas» articularán un ciclo tras el que desembarcará, en abril, una antológica dedicada al director de escena Fèlix Murcia, y el ingenio corrosivo de Stephen Frears, director de «Alta Fidelidad», «The Queen», «Mi hermosa lavandería» o «Las amistades peligrosas». Krzysztof Kieślowski tomará el relevo en julio con una exposición de fotografías realizadas por el cineasta polaco mientras estudiaba en Lodz y una segunda muestra que documenta la vida y la trayectoria artística de «El decálogo», mientras que en el capítulo de centenarios, la Filmoteca catalana recordará a Joan Brossa proyectando cada mes una película del gusto brossiano, así como a la United Artists, «la primera productora independiente», con un ciclo con películas de Charles Chaplin, Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks y David W. Griffith. Durante la temporada, la actriz Mercedes Sampietro tendrá «carta blanca» para seleccionar sus películas favoritas e Icíar Bollaín repasará su trayectoria con un ciclo dedicado especialmente a su trayectoria como actriz para José Luis Borau, Ken Loach y Víctor Erice, entre otros. Completan la programación un ciclo dedicado a la pareja sentimental y profesional formada por Roman Polanski y Emmanuelle Seigner y un recorrido por la obra del recientemente fallecido Bernardo Bertolucci.

          Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas at This Year’s MJBizCon      Cache   Translate Page      
A report from this year’s MJBizCon in Las Vegas. by Josh Jardine

In November, I attended the annual MJBizCon in Las Vegas. It’s the largest cannabis convention in the world, featuring 27,000 attendees from 70 countries, with 1,000 exhibitors, three days of speakers, break-out lunches, and afterparties. I didn’t visit all 1,000 booths or meet all 27,000 attendees, although “Hi, I’m Josh, that’s great, got a card?” probably passed my chapped lips close to 27,000 times over the three days.

Marijuana Business Daily put on a completely professional conference—any preconceived notions about what a cannabis event of this size might look like were shattered like a cheaply made bong hitting the floor. It was empowering to be in a shared space with tens of thousands of others who have made cannabis their (now) legitimate job.

The stereotypical dreadlocks-and-tie-dye set were outnumbered by carefully coiffed ’dos and business wear, and underscored how quickly the rapidly expanding legalization movement has changed the image of the industry. (For the record, I’m down with dreadlocks and tie-dye, but not socks with sandals, ever.) Hundreds of people congregated outside the Vegas Convention Center, and I ran into an edibles producer from Portland, who explained she wasn’t even there to attend the convention. She intended on connecting with attendees at the afterparties and whenever they stepped outside to take smoke breaks.

This regulated and (over)taxed industry differs considerably from its roots in medical marijuana programs and the unregulated marketplace. As with a lot of industries, the majority of faces I encountered were white and male, and many of those faces simply did not consume cannabis or had, at best, a rudimentary knowledge of it. Much as I would have reservations about a sommelier who doesn’t like wine or a tailor who wears Ed Hardy, I semi-expect those in the cannabis industry to partake or at least know something about the plant and its effects. I encountered plenty of perfectly nice professionals who were canna-ignorant and claimed to not use THC or CBD in any form. They did have a solid knowledge of banking and finance, and talked way above my head in terms of management of “big cannabis data.” But their disconnect from the plant itself was jarring.

There was also, strangely, a tremendous lack of weed among the people I met at the afterparties. Only once did someone offer any to share: a man with some pre-rolls dipped in his brand of BHO, yet the container had no mention of strain, THC content, or anything else—just his website. Having expected this, my custom road case was packed with a desktop vaporizer and some 15 strains of flower and ice hash, plus edibles, topicals, and CBD tincture from Oregon producers and processors. Pacific Wonderland, represent. (Thumps chest, coughs.)

Aided by my stash, I began to find some legitimately engaged canna professionals, and our conversations ranged from social consumption laws, to terpenes, to supporting women and POC in the industry. At one party, a handmade vaporizer designer from Connecticut filled his stylish rig with my hash, as we compared notes on the West Coast and East Coast industries. This kind of “networking”—with someone who had a grasp of cannabis’ nuances through actual experience—was far more valuable than connecting with someone who views cannabis solely as a commodity like pork or steel.

These encounters were a welcome relief from the convention’s tech bros rocking sunglasses on the backs of their heads—at night—and speaking at higher-than-necessary volumes about their “sick fucking next-level fully disrupting weed app.” With federal legalization coming ever closer, the commodification of cannabis is inevitable. That’s a good thing, basically—allowing for interstate cannabis sales, greater access for millions of medical cannabis users, and an uncaging of pot prisoners. Here’s hoping the architects of this industry actually enjoy the product in which they trade.

          THE WINERY DOGS Announce May 2019 U.S. Tour      Cache   Translate Page      
THE WINERY DOGS — the hard rock power trio featuring guitarist/vocalist Richie Kotzen (POISON, MR. BIG), bassist Billy Sheehan (MR. BIG, DAVID LEE ROTH) and drummer Mike Portnoy (SONS OF APOLLO, DREAM THEATER) — will embark on an American tour in May of 2019. The trek will mark the group's first tour in nearly three years. Tour dates: May 01 - Derry, NH - Tupelo Music Hall May 02 - Jim Thorpe, PA – Penn's Peak May 03 - New York, NY - Sony Hall May 05 - Ridgefield, CT - Ridgefield Playhouse May 07 - Hopewell, VA - Beacon Theater May 08 - Nashville, TN - Basement East May 09 - New Orleans, LA - House Of Blues May 11 - Dallas, TX - Gas Monkey May 12 - Houston, TX - Warehouse Live May 15 - Ft Wayne, IN - Pierre's May 16 - Milwaukee, WI - Potowatami Casino May 17 - Milwaukee, WI - Potowatami Casino May 18 - St Charles, IL - Arcada Theater May 20 - Minneapolis, MN - First Avenue May 23 - Denver, CO - Oriental Theater May 24 - Grand Junction, CO - Mesa Theater May 25 - Las Vegas, NV - Vamp'd May 28 - Sacramento, CA - Crest Theater May 29 - Santa Cruz, CA - Rio Theater May 30 - Anaheim, CA - The Grove May 31 - Los Angeles, CA - Saban Theater Since wrapping up an extensive world tour in support of their sophomore album, "Hot Streak", in the summer of 2016, THE WINERY DOGS have performed live on just two occasions — during the inaugural "Monsterwood" West Coast edition of the Monsters Of Rock cruise in the fall of 2016, and nearly a year later during an "Ultimate Jam Night" tribute to late ADRENALINE MOB, SOTO and TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA bassist David Zablidowsky at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California. Over the past two years, each of the members of THE WINERY DOGS have toured extensively with other acts — Kotzen with his long-running solo band; Sheehan with SONS OF APOLLO and MR. BIG; and Portnoy with SONS OF APOLLO, THE NEAL MORSE BAND and SHATTERED FORTRESS. THE WINERY DOGS were founded in 2012 after Portnoy and Sheehan — who initially aimed to collaborate with former WHITESNAKE and BLUE MURDER guitarist John Sykes — reached out to Kotzen, who played with Sheehan in MR. BIG from 1997 to 2002. The group's 2013 self-titled debut reached No. 27 on the Billboard 200 after selling more than 10,000 copies in the U.S. during its first week of availability. The initial sales of "Hot Streak" were even better, as the album debuted at No. 30 in late 2015 after shifting 13,000 equivalent album units in America during its first week of availability. Despite the band's success, Kotzen expressed a desire to return to his solo career after the end of the "Hot Streak" touring cycle. "I wanted to go back to what I was doing my whole life, which is making my music and my records," he said during an appearance on the satellite radio program "Trunk Nation" earlier this year. He reiterated that sentiment during a subsequent interview with Sofa King Cool. "I thought in my mind, 'Well, this worked. It was fun. It was really cool. But I kind of want to go back to being Richie for a while and doing what I was doing before,'" he said. For their parts, Sheehan and Portnoy both publicly voiced hope that THE WINERY DOGS' hiatus would be short-lived. In an interview with "The Unchained Rock Show" this summer, Sheehan called THE WINERY DOGS his "favorite band." "I love THE WINERY DOGS," he said. "Richie wanted to do some [other] things, and we wanted to give it a break for a while so it didn't get stale, and it would be new to us all the time. We will do more WINERY DOGS for sure." Portnoy, meanwhile, told Mitch Lafon this spring that "it's just a matter of when" until the group would reconvene. "I know all three of us love that band and we love working together, so it's a matter of Richie kind of just getting his rocks off on his own," he said. "He's just enjoying doing his own thing. He's always been a little… um… I don't wanna say 'scared'… I'll say, like, 'hesitant' to commit to a full-time band for the rest of his life. He spent so much of his life and career as a solo artist, and then once he got swept up in THE WINERY DOGS for two back-to-back cycles, which lasted maybe four or five years, I think it maybe overwhelmed him a bit and he just needed to step away and breathe and not have to be so committed to something. He likes to kind of just float on his own terms and his own schedule and do his own thing, which I can totally respect. So, at this point, when he's ready, I know Billy and I would love to do some more."

          13 Efsanevi Trans İkonun Hayatta Kalma, Dayanıklılık ve Neşe Üzerine Düşünceleri      Cache   Translate Page      
Zackary Drucker, Broadly’de yayınlanan makalesinde Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, Victoria Cruz, Sandy Stone ve diğer trans bireylere geçmiş ve gelecekleri hakkında sorular sordu. Toplumun bir kenara ittiği bu insanların verdikleri cevaplar ilham kaynağı olabilecek hayatta kalma hikâyeleriydi.


Drucker trans sözlü tarihi ile ilgili yaptığı geniş çapta araştırmasından bazı bölümleri yayınladığı yazısına aşağıdaki gibi devam ediyor.

Transların Geçmişi ve Geleceği


Bir öğleden sonra, 80. doğum gününde efsanevi Alexis Del Lago’nun, Los Angeles’taki bir bakım evinin görevlileri tarafından manikür yapılmış kırmızı tırnaklı elini tuttum. Parkinson’un son aşamalarında olduğu için benimle her zaman İngilizce konuştuğunu unutarak çoğunlukla İspanyolca konuşmaya başladı. Ombre manikürüme ağzından belli belirsiz çıkan “topaz” kelimelerle bir keresinde başka bir trans bireyin fazla kibar bir eli olduğu için onu eleştirdiğini hatırladı. Alexis cevabını, tırnaklarını boğazına geçireceğini söyleyerek vermişti. Bu, benimle iletişim kurabildiği son tutarlı anekdottu, bir başka trans birey ile sona ermeyen bir kavga.

Birkaç sene önce ise sadece bir blok ötemdeki bir başka huzurevinde sadece son günlerini geçiren, aynı derecede efsanevi Holly Woodlawn’ın elini tuttum. Düzensiz bir şekilde nefes alması ben yanındayken ölebileceğini düşündürdü. Aramızda, atlılardan oluşan bir geçit töreni gibi yoğun bir anı ve enerji geçişi hissettim.

Holly ve Alexis ile 10 yıldan önce tanıştım. İkisi hayat boyu kız kardeşler ve rakiplerdi; Her ikisi de Porto Riko’da doğmuşlardı ve ikisi de ergenliklerinde New York’a, daha sonra Los Angeles’a göç etmişlerdi. Alexis, 1950’lerin sonlarında New York’a taşındı ve moda eğitimi aldı. 1960’ların başlarında genç bir kaçak olan Holly Time’s Square’a kadar otostop çekerek geldi. Holly’nin yolculuğu, Lou Reed’in “Walk on the Wild Side” (Vahşi Taraftaki Yürüyüş) şarkısı ve ikonik yeraltı filmlerinde ile ölümsüzleştirilirken, Alexis’in etkisini yarım yamalak kaydedilen trans birey tarihine yerleştirmek biraz daha zordur. Alexis Andy Warhol’un işlerinde yer almak yerine John Vaccaro’nun Theatre of the Ridiculous’unda, Scott Whitman ve Jack Smith’in filmlerinde rol aldı. Fransız-Amerikalı fotoğrafçı Gilles Larrain için bir ilham kaynağıydı ve 1970’lerde New York City’den trans efsaneleri içeren fotoğraf kitabı IDOLS’un kapağında yer aldı.

Holly yıkıcı HIV/AIDS krizinin ardından, Studio 54’ün nihilist günlerinden ve Ady Warhol’un Fabrika’sının yüksek sosyeteye saldırılarından çok sonra Los Angeles’a taşındı ve kısa süre sonra Alexis de onu takip etti. Alexis ve Holly benzer yollardan geçtiler ama sürekli birbirleriyle rekabet ettiler. Birkaç yıl boyunca hiç konuşmadıkları bile oldu. Bu süreçte Alexis Holly’nin bir doğumgünü partisinde gösterişli bir giriş yaptığını ve göz açıp kapayıncaya kadar, dakikalar içinde kaybolduğunu hatırlıyorum.

Holly ve Alexis’in yolları her zaman kesişiyordu. Hatta Alexis’in düşüşünden sonra kısa bir süre aynı bakımevinde bile kaldılar. Bir ziyarette Holly’yi, ortalığın sakin olduğundan emin olmak için yan tarafa bakarken gördüm ve çileden çıkmış bir ses tonuyla fısıldayarak “Alexis burada!” dedi. Yine de Holly hastalandığında, tüm rekabet çözüldü: Alexis “Holly Lola”yı görmek için hastane odasının kapısını kırarcasına yumrukluyordu.

Holly’nin, insanları nadiren takdir ettiği anlardan birinde “Sen… bizim… geleceğimizsin” dediğini hatırlıyorum.
“Sen bizim geleceğimizsin” diye cevap verdim. Onda kendi geleceğimi gördüğümü ve onun hayatta kalmasının benim hayatta kalmamı sağladığını bilmesini istedim.

Yeni Neslin Sorumlulukları

Zachary Drucker

Gelecek neslin bir sanatçısı ve trans bireyi olarak, trans efsaneleriyle ilişkiler kurmak kendimi geleceğe hazırlama fırsatı verdi ve bana başka hiçbir şekilde erişemeyeceğim hayatta kalma stratejileri öğretti. Bu ilişkiler sayesinde nesiller boyu süren trans, beher ve toplumsal cinsiyete sahip olmayan insanların hak mücadelesi veren birçok insan olduğunu hatırlatıyor. Yaşlanacak kadar şanslı olursam umarım genç insanlar yanımda olur ve ben de onların gözlerine bakıp mücadelemizin devam ettiğini görebilirim. Yaptığımız fedakârlıklar ve refaha ulaşmamızın önüne koyulan engeller hepimizin daha iyi bir geleceğe sahip olması içindi.

Broadly’s Trans Legends (Broadly’nin Trans Efsaneleri) sözlü tarih projesi ile bu tarihe tanık -ve bu tarihin önemli karakterleri- olan 13 trans bireyin hikâyesini ve bilgeliğini derleyerek LGBTQ bireylerin mücadelesine ışık tutuyoruz. Kuşaklar arasında bağlantı kurarak zaman yolculuğu yapan, kendi geleceğimiz için ışık yaratan ve geçmişimizin yankılarını hissettiğimiz bir gezgin oluyoruz. Gerçek tehditler ve tehlikelerle karşılaşan insanların yanı sıra, öykülerimizin sadece ölüm ve şiddet hakkında olmadığını hatırlatıyoruz.

Transseksüel Anma Günü’nünde neredeyse tamamen öldürülen trans kadıları konu edindiğinden bu yazı için hayatta kalmak üzerine konuşabilecek trans bireyler ile röportaj yapmayı seçtim. Toplumun bu dışlanmış kesimindeki herkes acılarla dolu hayatlar gördü ve birçok kız kardeşinin şiddete maruz kaldığına ve öldürüldüğüne şahit oldu. Bazı azınlık topluluklardan aldıkları destek ve azimleri aracılığıyla hayatta kalmayı başardılar -ama herkes bu kadar şanslı değil. Toplumun sınırlarında yaşayan birçok trans bireyin hikâyesi diğer trans bireylerin hayatta kalması için bir rehberdir.

Aradığım bazı efsaneler emekliye ayrıldı ve artık kamu hayatına ilgi duymadıkları için röportaj teklifimi reddetti. Büyükannem vasıtasıyla tanıştığım bir efsane olan Kusursuz Sabrina benimle uzun uzun konuştu fakat mahallesinde genç bir trans birey öldürüldüğünden dolayı hedef olabileceğini düşündüğü için bu yazıda gerçek isminin geçmesini veya öne çıkarılmayı istemedi.

Bu projenin araştırma aşamasında, Amerika Birleşik Devletleri’nde yaşayan yaklaşık 100 trans bireyle görüştüm ve Bu röportajlar sadece buzdağının görünen ucu.

Translara Miras Kalan Tarih


Holly (solda) ve Alexis

Bazen bir markette alışveriş sepetimi sürerken veya bir doktorun ofisinde otururken hafif hafif “Walk on the Wild Side”ın sözlerini duyar gibi olurum. Lou Reed’in bariton sesi Holly Teyze’nin hikâyesinin başlancını şöyle anlatıyor: “Holly, Miami’den geldi, ABD boyunca otostop yaptı, kaşlarını yolda kopardı, bacaklarını traş etti, erkekti kadın oldu. ‘Hey bebeğim, vahşi tarafa bir yürüyüş yap’ dedi…” Çevremdeki insanların çoğu neredeyse 50 yıl önce yazılmış olmasına rağmen bu şarkının önemli bir trans birey olan Holly Woodlawn’ın hayatını anlattığını, hatta Holly Woodlawn’un kim olduğunu bile bilmiyor. Bizden önce gelen efsanelerin isimlerini bilsek de bilmesek de bize dokunuyorlar, içimizdeler, DNA’mızı cesaretle besliyorlar, her zaferimizi kutluyor ve her adaletsizlikte bize destek oluyorlar.

Miss Major Griffin-Gracy


Miss Major Griffin-Gracy hayatı boyunca transseksüel kadınların hastane ve hapishane gibi kurumlarda kilit altında tutulmasına karşı mücadele eden Chicago’lu emektar bir Stonewall sivil hakları savunucusudur. Miss Major, 1960’ların başlarında New York City’ye taşındı ve hayatta kalmak için yıllarca seks işçiliği yaptı. New York’ta Sylvia Rivera ve Marsha P. Johnson ile tanıştı. Fakat Miss Major, polis ile aralarında geçen bir olay nedeniyle beş yıl hapis cezasına çarptırıldığı için Stonewall ayaklanmalarını takip eden yıllarda çok ortaya çıkmadı. Miss Major, Birleşik Devletler’deki hapishane sistemi, ırkçılık ve transfobiye karşı mücadele ettiği kırk yıllık aktivizm geçmişine sahip. Sosyal adalet alanında ödüllü bir lider ve kısa süre önce Arkansas’daki Little Rock’taki Griffin-Gracy Evi’ni kurdu.

Sezgi Üzerine:

“Yaşlandıkça, içgüdülerimi takip etmeyi daha iyi öğrendim. Çünkü her şeyi bilmiyorum ve bir şeye güvenmek zorundayım. Benim için yol gösterici bir ışık oldu. İçgüdülerimi dinlemediğimde ya hapse girdim ya da dövüldüm. Yani şimdi sezgilerim bir şey söylediğinde bir durup düşünüyorum ve sezgilerimi takip etmeye başlıyorum.

[Little Rock, Arkansas]’a geldiğimden beri her şey harika. Güney’de yaşayan trans ve cinsiyet uyumsuz bireylere fayda sağlayacak bir konumda olduğumu hissediyorum. Sadece Arkansas’la sınırlı kalmak istemiyorum. Tüm Güney’de faydalı olmak istiyorum çünkü buradaki topluluk, 50’li yılların sonlarında yaşıyor ve biz 2018’deyiz. New York ya da San Francisco gibi trans ve cinsiyet uyumsuz bireylerin hayatları çoğunlukla kıyı şeridinde geçiyor. Bu genç kadınlar ve erkekler gündüz vakti dışarıya çıkamadığı için birçok şeyden faydalanamıyor. İnsanlar onları işe almadığı için vergilerini ödeyebilecekleri işlerde çalışamıyorlar.

Ben de bunun üzerine kâr amacı gütmeyen bir STK kurdum. Böylece kızlara yardım edebileceğim, onları eğitebileceğim, onlara bu dünya ve toplumla nasıl pazarlık yapılacağını ve bunu yapmak için muhtaç oldukları kudretin damarlarındaki asil kanda mevcut olduğunu anlatabileceğim. Böylece toplumun saçmalıklarına karşı dayanıklı ve dirençli olmalarını sağlayacak gücü bulmalarını sağlayabilir, bu saçmalıklara birlikte isyan bayrağı çekebiliriz. Biz, yaşamaya layık değiliz ve var olmamalıyız saçmalıklarını kabul ederek büyüdük. Bu hükümet de trans bireylere aynı şekilde hissettirmek için elinden geleni yapıyor. Öyleyse cesur olmalıyız ve kimliğimizi kazanmalıyız. Bu insanlar gelmeden önce onurlandırılıyorduk, takdir ediliyorduk ve bize hayranlık duyuluyordu. Ve eğer bu dünya kendi hareketini üretecekse, bu devrime önderlik etmek için en çok ezilen halk olan, benim de içinde bulunduğum siyah trans topluluğundan biri lider olarak desteklenmeli.”

Sabel Samone-Loreca


Sabel Samone-Loreca’nın HIV pozitif teşhisinden HIV/AIDS’le yaşayan insanların önde gelen savunucularından biri olma yolculuğu uzun ve sıradışı bir hikâye.  Sadece 3 yıl hayatı kaldığını düşünerek 90’lı yılların başında California’ya taşındı. Fakat Samone-Loreca hayatta kaldı, azmini ve merhametini aktivizme dönüştürdü. California’da yeni bir hayata başladı. HIV destek grupları kurdu ve San Francisco’da ACT UP ile çalışırken, Kaliforniya’da evlenen ilk trans kadın olmak gibi trans topluluğu için çığır açıcı anlar yaşadı. Son dönemlerde evlendiği Luis A. Loreca bir gençlik hakları savunucusuydu ve 2005’te 35 yaşında kanserden öldü. Samone-Loreca şu anda Starbucks’ta baristalık yaparken kurumun destekledeği Community Partners’ta (Topluluk Ortakları) denetçilik yapıyor ve EVERYBODY spor salonunda NSAM Sertifikalı Kişisel Antrenör olarak eğitim veriyor.

Hayatta Kalma Üzerine:

“Bazı günlerde karanlıkta kalmak istediğinizi biliyorum. Tüm pencereleri ve kapıları kapatmak ve sadece karanlıkta kalmak istiyorsunuz ama biraz bekleyip sabrederseniz, sadece biraz daha dayanırsanız ışık perde ve pencerelerin arasından geçiyor. Dediğim gibi: Siyah bir başkan gördüm, bir kadının başkanlık yarışına dahil olduğuna şahit oldum, hayatım boyunca bütün bu şeyleri değiştiren ve gerçekleşmesini sağlayan benim. Yeni yetişen çocukları görüyorum – işimden dolayı çocukları gözlemleme şansım var. Büyüyüp geliştiklerini görüyorum. Onların üniversitelere girdiklerini görüyorum ve bundan on yıl sonra, bizim için bambaşka bir dünya olacağına inanıyorum.”

İyileşme Üzerine:

“WAR (Women Against Rape/Kadınlar Tecavüze Karşı) adlı bir programa katılmıştım ve doktorum “Hayatını daha iyi hale getirmek için ne yapabilirim? Seni mutlu etmek için ne yapabilirim?” diye sordu. Ona cinsiyet geçişi yapmak istediğimi söyledim, ama bunun ne anlama geldiğini ve neye benzediğini bilmiyordum. Bir gün benimle bilgisayar karşısına oturdu ve yedi ya da sekiz çeşit hormon tedavisi inceledik. Bana her biri için bir reçete yazdı ve ‘Temiz kaldığın ve kendini dağıtmadığın sürece sana reçete yazmaya devam edeceğim’ dedi. O günden beri hiçbir reçetemi aksattırmadım.”

Judy Bowen


Judy Bowen, Stonewall Inn’deki ayaklanmadan sonra New York’ta iki transgrup destek örgütü başlatan bir trans aktivist. Ancak Bowen Güney’de müteyeddin bir evde büyüdü ve evanjelik bir gazete için muhabir olarak çalıştı. Gençliğinde trans kimliğini gizleyemedi ve intihar girişiminden sonra annesinden destek buldu. Knoxville’de ırkçı ve transfobik şiddete tanık olduktan sonra New York’a taşındı. Kalırsa öldürüleceğinden endişeleniyordu. New York’ta, Stonewall ayaklanmalarından önce Greenwich Village’da yaşadı ve trans insanlarla dolu bir toplulukta kendini buldu. Trans tıbbın ünlü öncüsü Harry Benjamin’inle çalışan bir organizatör ve toplum aktivistiydi. Sonunda Las Vegas’a taşındı ve New York City’nin zengin yirminci yüzyıl ortaları trans tarihi uzmanı.

Dostluk Üzerine:

“Marsha P Johnson’dan çok şey öğrendim. O zaman boyum 1,62m idi şimdi 1,57m. Marsha iri, uzun boylu, bir siyah kraliçe transseksüeldi ve korkusuzdu. Onunla konuşmaya başlamadan önce onu izlerdim. İkimiz de başak burcuyduk, o 1945’te doğmuştu, bazen birlikte kahve içmeye giderdik ve onun sayesinde korkusuzca polisler hakkında atıp tutabilirdik. Başka bir deyişle, cezalandırılmadan, açık ve özgürce kendimizi ifade etmemiz gerektiği gerçeğiyle yetiştirildik ancak bugün bu, başkan tarafından gittikçe zorlaşıyor. Kim olduğunuzdan utanmadan yaşama özgürlüğüne sahipsiniz.”

Aktivizm Üzerine:

“Polis gerçekten çok kötüydü. İlk kez tutuklandım, Long Island’da bir kulüpte düzenlenen bir güzellik yarışmasına katılmıştım ve polis baskın yapıp herkesi hapse attı. Polis baskını sonucu vücudumda oluşan çürükler 3 ay boyunca geçmedi. İnsanların ayağa kalktığı ve “Artık buna tahammül etmeyeceğiz” diyerek ayaklandığı Stonewall’un hemen altında, Christopher Sokağı’nda yaşadım. Temelde polis tarafından en çok vurulan trans bireylerdi. Bu benim kurtuluşumdu. Büyük bir “Red Light District” olan Village Meydanı’ndan Times Meydanı’na taşındık. Times Meydanı’nda Tango Room adlı bir kulüpte çalışıyordum. [Stonewall ayaklanması] birkaç gece sürdü ama sadece belli bloklarda olaylay yaşandı. Ancak bazen olayların yaşandığı bölgeden sadece iki blok ötedeki daireme zar zor ulaşıyordum. Ben her zaman bir aktivist oldum.”

Chilli Pepper


Chilli Pepper onlarca yıl profesyonel “kadın taklitçisi” olarak sahne alan bir Chicago efsanesidir. Pepper, 70’lerde trans topluluğunun ilk simgelerinden biri olarak ün kazandı. Ayrıca 1980’lerde Phil Donahue ve Oprah Winfrey gibi ulusal çapta yayınlanan talk şovlarda konuşan HIV/AIDS destekçileri arasında lider isimlerden biriydi.

Kültürel Miras Üzerine:

“Birbirinize karşı kibarsanız -hayatı kendinize ve sizden sonra gelenler için daha iyi hale getirmeye çalışıyorsanız- bu, yapabileceğiniz en iyi şeydir. Sadece kibar olmaya çalışıyor ve diğer her şeyi bir kenara bırakıp sadece arkadaş edinmek ve huzurlu bir yaşam sürdürmeye çalışmak istiyorsanız bu, gerçekten muhteşemdir. Bunu yapmak biz ve bizden önce gelen insanlar için daha zordu. [Trans atalarımız] sayesinde bizim hayatımız onlarınkinden daha iyi oldu. Bizim için bunu sağladılar ama neler çektiklerini tam olarak bilmiyoruz. Bunun farkında değiliz. Ama eminim ki kendi zamanlarında oldukları kişi olabilmek için çok sıkıntı çektiler. Umarım zamanla insanlar ya da sadece bu dünya kim olduğunuz kararını tamamen size bırakır. Bu, isteyebileceğin her şey; müziğin durduğu ana kadar gösterin ne olursa olsun yaşamana izin verilmesi.”

Felicia Elizondo


Felicia “Flames” Elizondo, San Francisco’da faaliyet gösteren bir aktivist, tarihçi, şovmen, diva, Vietnam Savaşı gazisi ve uzun bir süreç sonucu HIV/AIDS’ten kurtuldu. Tarihi 1966 Compton’s Cafeteria Ayaklanması sırasında San Francisco Compton’s Cafeteria’nın düzenli müşterisiydi. Susan Stryker ve Victor Silverman tarafından yönetilen 2005 yapımı Screaming Queens: The Riot at Compton’s Cafeteria belgeselinde de yer aldı.

Toplum Üzeri̇ne:

“Tüm servis elemanlarının gelip parti yaptığı YMCA’nın [San Francisco’da] hemen yanında bir mendirek vardı. Market Street’ten yukarı yürüdüğünüzde Tenderloin’den (Bölge) geçmek zorunda kalıyordubuz ve buralar La La Land’e benziyordu. Demek istediğim, istediğimiz kişi olabiliyorduk ve bu bizi endişelendirmiyordu Burası kızların sıra dışı makyaj, saç ve peruklarıyla ile ihtiyaçları olan her şeyi karşıladıkları bir bölgeydi.

Çok genç yaştaydım ve kız arkadaşlarım -hepsi San Jose’li kraliçelerdi- San Francisco’ya geldi ve saç perisi* (insanların saçlarındaki bitleri temizleyen emkçiler) olmaya başladı. Bunun dışında geçinebilmenin tek yolu uyuşturucu satmak ya da fuhuş çünkü bizi işe almıyorlardı. San Francisco’da çalışamazsın çünkü birçok insan kıskanıyor ve dışlayabiliyor. Ne demek istediğimi anlıyor musun?

Compton’s Cafeteria bizim için evrenin merkeziydi. Geceleri yaşadığımızdan ve arkadaşlarımızı görebileceğimizden emin olduğumuz bir yerdi. Bir sosyal kulüp gibiydi – ucuz yiyecek, ucuz kahve, ucuz kahvaltı. Her iki tarafta pencereler; Taylor Street’in bir köşesinde ve Turk Street’in diğer köşesinde pencerelerden başka bir şey yoktu. Kimin geldiğini, kimin dışarı çıktığını, kimin orada olduğunu ve kim olmadığını görebilirdiniz. Çoğu zaman Compton’s döner bir kapı gibiydi.”

Sheri Payne


Sheri Payne Chicago’da doğup büyüdü. 80’li yıllardan beri 1969’ta kurulan Chicago’nun efsanevi gece kulübü Baton’da sahne alıyor.

Öz Saygı Üzerine:

“Güvensiz hissediyorsanız ve bilmediğiniz çok şey olduğunu düşünüyorsanız birisiyle konuşun. Bu benim tavsiyem [genç trans bireyler için]. Yine de her şeyi bildiğinizi sanmayın çünkü gençsiniz. Size bazı şeyleri nasıl önleyebileceğinizi ve nasıl dürüst olabileceğinizi öğretebiliriz!

Kızlar, kendinizi çok ciddiye almayın. Eğer tüm yol boyunca cinsiyet değiştirmeyecekseniz sahip olduklarınızı kabullenin ve devam edin! İnsanların bir kız olarak doğmadığınızı bilmesinden gurur duyun. Bunda yanlış bir şey yok! Onu kucaklamalısınız. Trans doğdukları gerçeğini kucaklıyan genç kızları bazıları seviyorum. İşte ben buyum. Yani bunu kucaklayabilirsin, kaçmayı bırak. Ben kaçmıyorum.”

Victoria Cruz


Victoria Cruz, Porto Riko ve Brooklyn’de büyüdü ve Manhattan şehir merkezindeki LGBTİQ+ topluluğunda huzur buldu. New York City gece hayatına girdi ve transseksüel sivil hakları savunucuları Marsha P. Johnson ve Sylvia Rivera ile arkadaş oldu. Cruz, Johnson’ın ölümü ile ilgili rahatsız edici koşulları araştırdığı belgesel film The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson’daki (Marsha P. Johnson’ın Ölümü ve Hayatı) rolüyle 2017’de dikkatleri üzerine çekti. Cruz, crossdressing’in (karşı cinsiyet için tasarlanan kıyafetleri giymek) suç olduğu bir dönemde yaşadı, uyuşturucu bağımlılığı ve cinsel şiddet mağduru oldu. Yaşam deneyimi sonunda onu bir gönüllü olarak başladığı ve nihayetinde bir aile içi şiddet danışmanı haline geldiği Anti-Şiddet Projesi’ne getirdi. Bugün emekli oldu ama trans haklarını savunmaya devam ediyor ve trans bireylere karşı şiddete son vermek için açık sözlü bir eylemci olarak hayatına devam ediyor.

Direniş Üzerine:

“60’lı yıllarda duyulmamıştı çünkü bir trans olarak yakalanırsanız, bir sonraki gün mahkemeden aksi karar çıksa bile hapse atılırsınız. Ben kısa boylu olduğumdan dolayı genellikle fark edilmediğim için şanslıydım. Ayrıca o dönemlerde homoseksüellere alkol vermek yasaktı. Kanun buydu.

[New York’taki] Julius Bar’ı biliyor musun? 1969’un başlarında, Mayıs’ta, “sip in” diye bir şey oldu. Bazı insanlar Julius’a girdiler, eşcinsel olduklarını söylediler ve bir şeyler içmek istediler. İçki servis eden Julius Bar ise baskına uğradı. Buna “sip in” diyorlardı. Bir sonraki ay Stonewall İsyanı gerçekleşti. İnsanlar polisle yaşadığı bu saçmalıktan ve barlara ve benzeri yerlere baskın yaparken tutuklanmaktan bıkmışlardı. Unutmayın: Siyah hareketi ve kadın hareketi gayet güçlü bir şekilde ilerliyordu. Eşcinsel hareketin başlamasının tam zamanıydı.”

Ceyenne Doroshow


Ceyenne Doroshow, trans bireylerin hak savunucusu ve trans seks işçilerine bütünsel destek sağlayan G.L.I.T.S. örgütün kurucusudur. Hayatı boyunca New York’ta yaşayan Doroshow, LGBTIQ+ topluluğu için çalışan birçok kurulda koltuk sahibi ve toplumdaki trans kadınlara yönelik fırsat eşitsizliği üzerine çalışıyor. Doroshow kraliçe Kusursuz Sabrina’nın (Jack Doroshow) kızıdır ve Cooking in Heels (Topuklularla Yemek Yapmak) yemek kitabının ortak yazarıdır. Doroshow, Major gibi, HBO’nun Oz dizisinden ikonik transseksüel belgesellere kadar, film endüstrisinde de kendine rol buldu.

Temsil Üzerine:

“Suistimal ile karşı karşıya kaldığınızda birine söyleyin. Bunu yapmak için -toplum veya okulunuz tarafından- engellendiğinizi hissettiğinizde güvenebileceğiniz bir yere yönelin ve kendinizi eğitin. Trans topluluğu olarak, genç neslin bizim yükselemediğimiz yerlere ulaşması için çalışmalıyız. Bu, her yaşamın her alanında bizden insanlar görmek istediğim anlamına geliyor. Bizi medyada görmek istiyorum, bizi avukatlar, doktorlar, yargıçlar, politikacılar, kongre üyeleri olarak görmek istiyorum, ciddiye alınmamız için sosyal yaşamda daha fazla temsil edilmemiz gerekiyor.”

Gerçek Üzerine:

“Zaman zaman beni çocukluktan tanıyan insanlarla karşılaşırdım ve bana ‘Öldüğünü duydum’ derlerdi. Peki bunu kim söyledi? “Ailen.” Ben de derdim ki ‘Tatlım, ölü değilim. Ne olduğumu görüyorsun.’ Öldüğümü söylemek ne olduğumu söylemekten daha kolay olabilirdi ancak ben gerçeklerimle yaşıyorum.”

Jackie Shane


Jackie Shane, 1960’larda bir R&B müzisyeni olarak sahneye çıktı. Gezgin bir karnavalda müziğe başladıktan sonra 1967’de albümünü Any Other Way’i yayınladı. Shane birçok eyalette crossdressing yasadışı olan 1950’lerden beri bir kadın olarak yaşıyor. Hayat hikâyesi bir film gibi: çete ile karşılaşır, adam kaçırır ve insanların yıllarca öldürüldüğünü düşündüğü ortadan kayboluş. Son on yıldır Shane’in işlerine karşı yükselen bir ilgi var. Shane şu an Nashville’de yaşıyor.

Otonomi Üzerine:

“Ben hayatımı engelleyecek hiçbir şeyin yoluma çıkmasına izin vermem. Hiçbir şey. Hiçbir zaman. Doğanı değiştiremezsin ve kurallarına uyduğun sürece belirlediğin yolda ilerlemende bir probleminiz çıkmaz. Kazandıklarının ve sahip olduklarının elinden alınmasına izin verdiğinde kaybedersin. Arkadaşın olsa bile insanlara ‘Bu benim hayatım ve ben onu istediğim şekilde yaşayacağım. Sana da nasıl yaşaman gerektiğini söylemeyeceğim. Sana söyleyeceğim tek şey sen kendi işine bak, ben kendiminkine’ diyebilmelisin.

Hatırlayabildiğim kadarıyla ben böyle yaşadım. Kendi hükümlerimle yaşıyorum. Ağlamıyorum, inlemedim, sağ sola saldırmadım ve şikayet etmiyorum. Yapmam gerekeni yapıyorum. Birisi söyledi diye değil, Jackie için en iyisini Jackie bilir. Ve sizin için en iyi olanı bilmiyorsanız öğrenin. Kalabalıktan uzaklaşarak öğrenin. İnsanlara söylediğim gibi, çoğu insan karbon kopyadır ama kendini, bir liderin peşinden koşmaktan vazgeçip kendi akışına bırakmadan önce kim olduğunu asla bilemezsin.”

Karina Samala



Karina Samala, transseksüel güzellik yarışmaları ve ABD’de transseksüel eşitlik için çalışan bir eylemci için sahneye komuta veren, ödüllü bir sanatçıdır. Bugün, Samala, Los Angeles İmparatorluk Mahkemesi Yönetim Kurulu Başkanı olarak, ülkenin en eski LGBT örgütlerinden biri olan 1965’te kuruldu. Aynı zamanda, Kraliçe ABD ve Evrenin Kraliçesi’nin iki büyük üreticisi. trans güzellik yarışmaları. Samala ayrıca, politika ve savunuculukta çalışarak LAPD’nin trans kişilerle polis etkileşimlerini geliştirmesine ve Batı Hollywood’un Transgender Danışmanlık Kurulu gibi çeşitli LGBT toplum örgütlerine hizmet etmesine yardımcı oluyor.

Direnç Üzerine:

“Birleşmemiz gerekiyor. Hayatta kalmak için birbirimizle çalışmak zorundayız ve düşündüğümüzden daha çok kişiyiz. Hayatta kalmak için birlikte olmalıyız. Ayrıca sokaklarda olmalı, gösterilere katılmalıyız. Böylece var olduğumuzu ve onlarla birlikte çalıştığımızı görebiliriz. Ayrıca oy verin! Herkese oy vermesini söyleyin. Bize yardım etmek için herkese ihtiyacımız var! Transseksüelleri onurlandırmamız gerek. Özellikle de ölenleri; Onlar için savaşmalıyız. Bize yardım edecek doğru kişiler için oy kullanmalıyız. Bu çok önemli. Yapacak çok işimiz var. Herkesin saygı birbirine saygı duyduğu ve tüm trans bireylerin yaşam alanlarının kalitesini iyileştiği özgür bir dünya inşa etmeliyiz.”

Sandy Stone


Sandy Stone yazar, sanatçı ve cinsiyet teorisine akademik katkıları bulunan, modern transgender çalışmalarının temelini atan akademik teorisyenlerden biri. Aynı zamanda 1970’lerin önde gelen radikal feminist örgütü ve müzik kolektifi olan Olivia Records’ta da kökleri olan bir sanatçı. Radikal feminist Janice Raymond’un 1979’da transseksüel insanlara saldıran kötü şöhretli metinlerden biri Transseksüel İmparatorluğu’nu yazmasının ardından Stone’un Olivia Records’taki rolü önemli bir başlık olarak öne çıktı. Stone kadın hareketini bölmekle suçlanarak hedef gösteriliyordu; hayatı sık sık tehlikeye girdi ve 1987’de, İmparatorluk Geri Dönüş: Bir Transseksüel Manifesto metnini yazdı. Stone’un çalışması, Raymond’un savunduğu teoriyi ortadan kaldırdı ve zamanın trans nesline ilham kaynağı oldu. Stone bugün Teksas ve Kaliforniya’da çalışan bir akademisyen.

Güvenlik Üzerine:

“Bir kadın topluluğunu keşfetmeye başladığımda, farklı şeyler yapan kadın çevreleri ve ‘sadece kadınlar’ gruplarına rastlıyordum. Bu ilginçti. Geleneksel cis kadın kültürüne bulaşmadan, hiçbir ön yargıya uymayan özgür bir kadın olabilirsiniz. Bu görüş bugün biraz daha yaygın olsa da o zaman bir aydınlanma gibiydi. Olivia [Records]’a gidip ABD’de lezbiyen güvenli evlerinin bulunduğunu ve kıyıdan kıyıya geçerken asla erkek temsili ile karşılaşılmayan paralel bir alt kültür ya da süper kültür olduğunu keşfettim. Her yerde. Ülke çapında bir rizom gibi. Bir süre o rizomda yaşadım.”

Tiffany Arieagus



1960’larda Tiffany Arieagus annesiyle birlikte sivil haklar yürüyüşlerinde yürüyordu. Bu deneyim ona politik bir amaç verdi ve dünyadaki rolünü nasıl algıladığını şekillendirdi. Arieagus uluslararası alanda tanınmış bir şovmen ve Güney Amerika, Kanada, Meksika ve ABD’de transgender güzellik yarışmalarında yaklaşık 50 derecesi var. Film endüstrisinde de çalıştı. Bir konut dava yönetim programı yöneticisi olarak bugün HIV/AIDS ile yaşayan topluluklara hizmet ediyor. Arieagus başkalarının hizmetinde çalışmaya devam ediyor ve profesyonel eğlence hayatını dünyayla paylaşıyor.

Kurumlaşma Üzerine:

“Tarihi değiştirmek için bir şansınız varsa değiştirin. Hayatınızı daha iyi hale getirme şansınız varsa bunu yapın. Sadece para kazanarak hayatınızı daha iyi hale getiremezsiniz çünkü dünyadaki tüm paranın sahibi olsanız da dünyadaki en yalnız insan olabilirsiniz. Dünyadaki bütün paraya olup mutsuz olabilirsiniz. Dünyadaki bütün paraya sahip olabilirsiniz ve evinizde saklanmanız gerekir çünkü komşularınızın bön bön bakışlarına maruz kalmadan dışarı çıkamazsınız. Peki bunu nasıl değiştirirsiniz? Dik durup konuşarak. Sesin duyulsun. Bu şekilde başkalarının da bu güce sahip olduklarının farkına varmalarına yardım edersiniz çünkü el ele tutuşur, bağlanır, konuşur ve içinizdeki gücü kelimelere döker ve sayıca güçlenirsiniz. Benim istediğim bu.

Eşcinsel gururu geçit törenimiz var. Oğlanları, lezbiyenleri ve gençleri görebildiğimiz farklı etkinlikler var ama translara özgü daha az etkinlik var. Onlar temelde şovmendir çünkü diğer herkes radarın altında kalmak istiyor. Ne kadar güzel ne kadar ikna edici olduğunuz önemli değil. Herkesi kandıramazsınız. Yani kimseyi kandırmaya çalışarak zaman kaybetmeyin. Kendinize karşı dürüst olun. Bu tavsiye yaşlı bir kadından geliyor.”

Mia Yamamoto


Mia Yamamoto 1985’ten bu yana kamu savunma bürosunda ve özel olarak çalışan, Kaliforniya’nın önde gelen savunma avukatlarından biri. 1943’te Arizona’daki bir Japon kampında doğdu ve daha sonra medeni haklar hareketine katkıda bulunmak arzusu ile hukuk fakültesine gitmeden önce Vietnam savaşında görev aldı. Çalışmalarıyla sayısız ödül aldı ve LGBTIQ+ bireyler ve marjinal grupların önemli bir yasal savunucusu oldu.

Dayanışma Üzerine:

“Mümkün olduğu kadar görünür olmam gerektiğini hissediyorum çünkü yalnızca riyakar ve iki yüzlü insanlar tarafından değil, Birleşik Devletler Başkanı tarafından hedef gösteriliyoruz. Onları hedef gösterildiğinden beri bu insanlarla dayanışma içinde oldum. Düşündüm ki ben bir Müslümanım, ben bir Yahudiyim, siyahım, ben bir kadınım – hedef gösterdiği herkes benim. Partiye geç kalmıyoruz. Son zamanlarda trans insanları hedef gösteriyor ama kendimi daha çok tanımladığım diğer grupları da uzun süredir hedef gösteriyor. Önemsem gereken insanlar bunlar çünkü imtiyazlı -ve hayatlarını rahatlıkla geçirebilen- insanlar tarafından yeterince umursanmıyorlar. Onlar mücadele ediyorlar ve benim gibi insanların onlar için mücadele edeceğine güveniyor. Sınırlarımızda biten herhangi bir mülteci gibi onlar da desteğimize muhtaç erkek ve kız kardeşlerimiz. Onlar bizim sorumluluğumuz ve yükümlülüğümüz. Vatandaşlıktan faydalanan herkesin ABD’li olmanın ahlaki anlamda ne anlama geldiği konusuna dikkat etmesi gerekir.”

Austin Cooper vs Joey Nux, with Blake Starr, Cowboys (Wrestler4Hire)

Today's post was inspired by the W4H video of Austin and Joey wrestling in blue jeans beside a hogtied Blake. I love the video, but, truth be told, I loved it even before I watched it. The images of shirtless cowboys in jeans and boots were my Proustian madeleine to memories of the past, when my father was stationed at Nellis Air Force Base and I lived with my parents in Las Vegas. This was when I was between the ages of 13 and 15.

Two memories, to be precise, that have meshed together over the years. One is set in gym class at Von Tobel Jr. High School (near the future residence of Siegfried and Roy, a friendly Key West bartender once informed me). The PE teacher had set up mats for wrestling. He paired everybody according to weight. I was odd man out, a bit bigger than most of the kids in my grade. Then Terry Maxwell, a grade above me and the handsomest, most athletic guy at school, volunteered to wrestle me, much to the amusement of the teacher, who knew a squash situation when he saw it. Stepping on the mat with a suddenly shirtless Terry, I got an instant boner, which Terry ignored but a few of my classmates did not. It was a quick match. Terry pinned me with an inside cradle. I still remember the heat radiating off his body. Then rather than let me get up, he held me down a few more seconds with a schoolboy pin, at which point he had to feel the nudge of my erection against his tailbone. 

The other memory is set in what used to be called a dime store, not far from the Strip back then (1966-1968). My mother was in another part of the store. I was in the book and magazine section, browsing. Then I saw a tall, well-built young man nearby, shirtless, in cowboy hat, tight tight jeans, and boots. I figured he was probably a hustler - not a foreign concept to me at that time. (Military brats back then grew up around tattoo parlors, firearms, and prostitutes.) There's no story to tell on this one, just the image, ca. 1967, which is photographically preserved in my mind. Later, I would see the image echoing some of Tom of Finland's drawings of the 1950s and 1960s. As soon as I saw the photos for Wrestler4Hire's Cowboys, I realized how the dime-store cowboy's high cheekbones and sharp jawline were the imprint that drew me to Joey Nux at first sight earlier this year.

That's it. Not a story, really, definitely not a review. Just a couple of memories that became the architecture of my sexuality.

The pool is clean, nice clubhouse and the people at the front desk are very helpful. Good location, close to freeways and Samstown, the Wetlands Park, Boulder City etc. Every guest we met was cordial. We will return and stay longer the next time.

          BWW Feature: Travis Cloer is special guest in THE COCKTAIL CABARET at Cleopatra's Barge in Caesars Palace      Cache   Translate Page      

The holiday spirit has captured the "The Cocktail Cabaret," the intimate show celebrating the cocktail hour. After performing with the Las Vegas Philharmonic and headlining "Christmas at my House," special guest Travis Cloer will join the regular cast bringing his powerful vocals to Cleopatra's Barge in Caesars Palace Dec. 5-8.

Niki Scalera ("Tarzan," "Hairspray," "Footloose"), Eric Jordan Young ("Vegas! The Show," "Rock of Ages," "Chicago," "Ragtime," "Seussical the Musical," "Dreamgirls"), and Maren Wade ("50 Shades! The Parody," "America's Got Talent," "Confessions of a Showgirl," "Pin Up,") make up the incredible cast.

The fantastic four-piece band led by co-producer and renowned pianist Philip Fortenberry ("Behind the Candelabra") includes drummer Don Meoli ("Jersey Boys"), saxophonist Eric Tewalt ("Celine Dion's orchestra), and bassist Josh Jones ("Million Dollar Quartet").

"We've created a knock-your-socks-off musical tour de force, so we're more than excited that Caesars Palace is home to The Cocktail Cabaret," says Keith Thompson, director, arranger, and co-producer. Thompson has wowed audiences with "Jersey Boys," "Idaho! The Comedy-Musical" and emcees and produces "The Composers Showcase" at The Smith Center.

The original idea was to present a modern musical twist to a show reminiscent of Vintage Vegas a time when the great entertainment played the smaller venues on the Strip. The cocktail hour is celebrated with an elegant and fun show before dinner or a night-on-the-town."

Cloer portrayed Frankie Valli for about a decade in the Tony Award-winning musical, "Jersey Boys." As Cloer admits, "Other than Frankie Valli, I have been Frankie longer than anyone else." Musically, he embraces the cool sound of jazz and standards to showcase his style.

Cloer is influenced by the singers of the past and he states that if people were to listen to contemporary singers today, there is a big jazz influence. "Mel Torme is the biggest influence in my vocal styling and the music I like to sing."

Original cast member Daniel Emmet made it to the finals of NBC's "America's Got Talent." Fortenberry recently completed a three-week, 14-city solo concert tour of China. The critically acclaimed pianist is a veteran of 10 Broadway shows and eight national tours including "Cats," "Ragtime," and "The Lion King." He was the concert headliner with his newest release, "Give My Regards." His hands were used as the Liberace hand/body double in HBO's biopic, "Behind the Candelabra.

A variety of songs, including some holiday classics, are performed by the stellar talent. Thompson wrote some original music, (including the title song), for the show.

Truly a piece of Caesars Palace's history, Cleopatra's Barge offers a classic vintage experience. The luxurious floating barge is an ornate replica of the graceful craft that transported the royalty of Egypt on the Nile River in the time of Julius Caesar. Its intimate size with red and gold décor is the perfect venue for "The Cocktail Cabaret."

A rotating line-up of special guest stars is scheduled to appear including vocalist Ron Remke ("Vegas! the Show," "BAZ") Dec. 26-29, and guest emcees Broadway star Brent Barrett ("Chicago," "Annie Get Your Gun," "Grand Hotel," "Phantom, The Las Vegas Spectacular") and veteran comic Tony Arias on various dates throughout the holiday season.

Performances are 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday (dark Sunday through Tuesday) with dark days Dec 12-15. Tickets can be purchased at any Caesars Entertainment box office, calling 702-777-2782 or visiting at www.CocktailCabaret.com.

Updated at 4:50 p.m. ET Investigators in Las Vegas are sifting through evidence they've gathered from the homes of the man who sprayed a concert crowd with gunfire. They've begun to interview his girlfriend. They've learned quite a bit about Stephen Paddock's past and preparation, but there is still no explanation for why he damaged and destroyed so many lives.

Investigators have yet to determine a motive for what has become the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history, but they are hoping Paddock's computer hard drives will give some clues. They also hope to talk to his girlfriend, who has been out of the country. From Mesquite, Nev., NPR's Howard Berkes reports. HOWARD BERKES, BYLINE: One thing is absolutely certain about 64-year-old Stephen Paddock. He loved guns and had his own private arsenal. This is what investigators found at his home in Mesquite according to Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo. (SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING) JOE LOMBARDO: We retrieved in excess of 18 additional firearms, some explosives and several thousand rounds of ammo. BERKES: And
