          Trae su experiencia de vida en la ópera      Cache   Translate Page      

Con el objetivo de compartir su experiencia sobre los escenarios más exigentes de la ópera, la soprano española Laura Alonso Padín, ofrecerá en la región una master class en coordinación con el proyecto lagunero de ópera All'unisono, los días 7 y 9 de diciembre en el Teatro de Cámara de la Universidad Autónoma de Coahuila.

En entrevista con El Siglo de Torreón, desde España, la soprano explicó que México es país hermano para una española como ella. Que siempre le ha encantado este país y es bien relevante actuar aquí, dado que es una tierra de maravillosas voces de ópera y en la que cada vez la lírica tiene un lugar más importante en la sociedad.

Sobre el significado de la Zarzuela, un género que ha tenido frutos importantes en su carrera, Laura Alonso, comentó: "La zarzuela goza de enorme popularidad en Europa pero tal vez necesite valedores como los necesita también la ópera y el lied que está perdiendo fuerzas en algunos países".

Como algo fundamental y que debemos aprovechar cada día, consideró la soprano española el papel de las redes sociales para difundir géneros como la ópera y la llamada "música clásica", en las nuevas generaciones.

Sobre como ha logrado una carrera constante y de logros importantes, la cantante dijo que: "estudiando con mucha ética y principios la mayor cantidad de horas que puedo, para luego dar lo mejor de mí. Cada cual debe dar la mejor versión de uno mismo".

Aun cuando ella misma dice que la función de un cantante es propagar y difundir lo clásico en el mundo, un acercamiento a lo popular es siempre maravilloso, siempre que no se cante con voz de ópera.

Sobre su referencia en el canto dijo que "la señora Montserrat Caballé, que ha sido la mayor soprano de todos los tiempos a mi humilde parecer".

Los interesados en asistir a las clase que impartirá Padín, como oyentes o activos, pueden comunicarse al correo electrónico opera.allunisono@hotmail.com, o al teléfono 8712122027.

Una gran invitada

Laura Alonso Padín estudió canto y violín, amplía sus estudios en la Musikhochschule de Karlsruhe en Alemania, donde estudia con los maestros Aldo Baldín, Anna Reynolds, Jean Cox, y lied con Hartmut Höll, gracias a la importante beca alemana Alexander von Humboldt. Es invitada regular en teatros y salas de conciertos como el Auditorio Rishon Le Zion, de Israel; el Lincoln Center de Nueva York; el Teatro Bellas Artes en México; el Philharmonie de Colonia, Berlín y Essen, así como al Herodes Atticus de Atenas, y ciudades como Amsterdam, Los Ángeles Valencia y Barcelona, entre otros muchos. Ha sido ganadora del Primer Premio en el último Certamen Alfredo Kraus, junto a otros destacados como los certámenes Franco Corelli, Verviers o Jaume Aragall.

          “A Bronx Tale”      Cache   Translate Page      

 

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

—Sir Walter Scott

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Bush's state funeral follows generations of tradition      Cache   Translate Page      

Former President George H.W. Bush's state funeral encompasses four days of events, from his arrival in Washington to his burial in Texas on Thursday.

The guidelines for state funerals date back to the mid-1800s and have been shaped over time. Seating arrangements, for example, are detailed with precision, with the presidential party followed by chiefs of state, arranged alphabetically by the English spelling of their countries.

Ronald Reagan's state funeral in 2004 was the first of its kind since Lyndon Johnson died in 1973. Gerald Ford's state funeral overlapped the end of 2006 and the beginning of 2007.

The president, former presidents and a president-elect are all entitled to a state funeral, but the family decides if they actually get one or just how involved it will be. Richard Nixon's family, acting on his wishes, opted out of the Washington traditions when he died in 1994, his presidency shortened and forever tainted by Watergate.

The rules and what actually happens are based on what has come before.

John F. Kennedy's services were modeled after those of Abraham Lincoln, at the request of his widow, Jacqueline, in her first public statement after the assassination. Historians examined musty documents by flashlight in the middle of the night as the stunned country waited for a plan — the Library of Congress' automatic lights could not be rigged to come on after hours.

Bush is the 12th president to lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda. Like many presidents, Bush and Ford served in Congress. Reagan did not.

Eight presidents have had funeral processions down Pennsylvania Avenue, including all four presidents to die by assassination — Lincoln, James Garfield, William McKinley and Kennedy. Bush decided his state funeral would not include a formal procession through downtown Washington.

Washington National Cathedral, which will host Bush's national service Wednesday, served the same function for Dwight D. Eisenhower, Reagan and Ford.

Two presidents are buried at Arlington National Cemetery: Kennedy and William Howard Taft. Bush will be buried at his presidential library in College Station, Texas, near his wife, Barbara, who died in April, and their daughter Robin, who died of leukemia at age 3.

Only sitting presidents and immediate family members have ever lain in the White House for viewing. Ex-president John Adams didn't even lie in the White House, though his son, John Quincy Adams, was the sitting president at the time of the death. The older Adams died the same day as Thomas Jefferson — July 4, 1826 — possibly complicating his chances for a White House viewing.

The Capitol has a more expansive policy for lying in state. Congressman Henry Clay, in 1852, was the first to lie in the Capitol Rotunda. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover lay in the Capitol in 1972. Police officers killed in 1998 while protecting the Capitol also lay in state there. Sen. John McCain lay in state after his death earlier this year.

The first presidential state funeral was for William Henry Harrison, who in 1841 became the first president to die in office, just 30 days after his inauguration. Alexander Hunter, a Washington merchant, was tasked with putting on a first-of-its-kind American ceremony. He draped the White House in black. Official buildings and many private households followed suit, starting a now-lost tradition that was repeated at Lincoln's funeral 25 years later.

          Epische Verletzungsseuche plagt die Pechvögel der NFL       Cache   Translate Page      

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

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

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

Redskins erneut mit Verletzungspech

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

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

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

Sanchez schreibt Geschichte

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

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

Schweres Restprogramm für Philadelphia

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

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

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

          America Likes to Look at Its Dead Presidents      Cache   Translate Page

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

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

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

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

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

          Here are 7 reasons overworked and underpaid workers on the U.S. coasts should move to Middle America      Cache   Translate Page      
Money stretches a lot further when you’re paying a reasonable rent.

If you live on the East or West Coast, you’ve probably been subjected to increasingly expensive rents, food, clothing, and more—tiresome commutes, working multiple jobs to pay the bills, and the exhaustion that comes with the frustration of not being able to do more of what you want.

Unfortunately, the trajectory of ever-increasing rents and cost of living expenses is probably not going to reverse any time soon.

In the Heartland, though, more and more people are finding space to accomplish what they might not be able to elsewhere.

Here are the things you can find in Middle America that aren’t all that common on the East or West Coasts.

1. Affordable Rent

Rent in Dayton, Ohio, can be had for a few hundred dollars. A three-bedroom house in Dayton’s up-and-coming South Park is just $750 a month. Houses in the “rich” parts of Middle America can be found for less than $500,000. A friend recently purchased an eight-unit apartment building in a small Midwestern college town for just $170,000. Your quality of life can dramatically improve while spending the same as, or less than, what you’re currently paying on rent—and even provide the opportunity to purchase or invest in property for less than what you would pay in rent on the East or West Coast.

2. Affordable Nights Out

I recently went to purchase a shot of top-top shelf liquor at a popular bar in Lincoln, Nebraska, and almost fell over when the bartender asked me for $4. The people I was with were concerned that was too much money. No, I explained; I just had never paid so little for good liquor before. In Middle America, a Jack and Coke could cost as little as $2. Some of these states, like Michigan, even have legalized marijuana. Other places offer incredible deals at high-quality restaurants, cafes, and luxury boutique hotels—places and quality that are rare, if ever, treats when you’re spending thousands on rent.

3. Affordable Small Businesses

Small bookstores, cafes, clothing stores, boutique hat shops, candy stores—all sorts of fun small businesses can be found in Middle America that, if you’re an entrepreneur, you might not be able to afford to open—and keep open—on the coasts. Low-cost commercial rents and even cooperative electric utilities create an opportunity for people to experiment and try their hand at something that might seem impossible elsewhere, like a shop that just sells licorice. It makes shopping more fun because you’re looking at truly unique items, and the items are actually affordable.

4. More Time

For the professional who is accustomed to grinding for rent 14-18 hours a day, Middle America has space for people to earn money in an 8-hour day, leaving people with more time. Businesses are often still closed entirely on Sundays, leaving that day free for spending time with friends and loved ones. When one friend on a Sunday recently asked what time it was, the response was “It’s Sunday”—who cares what time it is when there is nowhere to run off to and no deadline to meet that day? It can be an adjustment, but the stress and tension of always running eventually melt away.

5. More Space to Do More of What You Love

Have you been itching to try something new—a new theater production, a street festival, impromptu marching bands, or perhaps an outdoor punk rock acupuncture festival? That might be a logistical nightmare in Brooklyn, but in Middle America, there might be some stoic resistance, but along with that often comes a “Huh. Let’s give that a try.” There’s a welcoming beginner energy. Because there simply isn’t a lot of stuff happening, people are surprisingly up and open to trying new things that, perhaps, they might be too busy for elsewhere. The adage “if you build it they will come” is actually true.

6. Money to Invest

With less money being spent on everything from rent to the club, there’s more money for saving, investing, or buying the new items you might not be able to afford in New York or Los Angeles. Property is cheap, but don’t let the stories of Detroit’s comeback (and now crazily overpriced property) discourage you. America is filled with old towns just waiting for someone to come in and do something good.

7. It’s Not All Scary Red States

There’s an idea in some parts of the East and West Coasts that Middle America is scary: Racist, homophobic, Trump-supporting, scary white people. That just isn’t the case. Most of those states would’ve gone Bernie over Trump in a heartbeat had they been given the chance. There are people of color and immigrants all over Middle America—people from Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America, who live in the “flyover” states and have brought their cultures and delicious food with them. There are hip pockets everywhere, from Columbus to Lincoln, Winona to Knoxville, Grand Rapids to Milwaukee. The internet makes it seem like these places aren’t cool, but there are already cool people out there.

Middle America is not the Middle America of Fox News. You just need to be brave enough to check it out. The opportunities there might surprise you.

          Susan Koch: Reaching Stellar through donor giving      Cache   Translate Page      
The following is an excerpt from a column by University of Illinois Springfield Chancellor Susan Koch. This column appeared in The State Journal-Register on December 3, 2018.

One of my favorite quotes is strategically posted just below my computer screen where I can read it each day when I get to work. The author, Andrew Heiskell, was chairman of Time Inc. and a renowned philanthropist who raised millions of dollars for the New York Public Library. Heiskell asserted the best strategy for successful fundraising is to first “create a place where people want to be involved.”

UIS is creating just such a place at One University Plaza on the south side of Springfield — a place where people increasingly want to be involved.

The best proof of Heiskell’s assertion may be the progress of the current UIS capital campaign. The largest philanthropic effort in the University’s history, “Reaching Stellar” has already raised over $25.2 million — 63 percent of its $40 million goal.

Priorities for the campaign include: increasing scholarship support, enhancing academic excellence, establishing a new Center for Lincoln Studies, bolstering the “public good” UIS provides through its outreach programs, and enhancing facilities and technology.

According to Dr. Jeff Lorber, UIS Vice Chancellor for Advancement, “the success to date of the Reaching Stellar campaign has being achieved in large part because of the increasing engagement of alumni and community friends in the life of the University.”

Anne and Ray Capestrain are among those valued friends. “We believe in UIS’s mission to provide a quality, cost-effective college education to the community,” says Anne. “Scholarships are an important priority for us because students need more support than ever to realize their academic goals without accumulating debt that negatively impacts their future choices.” “The Student Union was an attractive project, too,” she continues, “because we believe it will draw more students to the university — which will contribute to the diversity of the campus as well as our community.” (The Capestrains, along with other family members, have named a conference room in the Student Union in honor of their parents, Robert and Dorothy Tracy.)

Longtime educator, community leader and philanthropist Mary Loken is another “Reaching Stellar” contributor who believes deeply in the value of UIS in the community. “A vibrant UIS is essential for the growth and enrichment of Springfield, and I applaud each exciting priority in the campaign,” says Loken. “Scholarships are especially important to me and I’m proud the Loken Family Scholarship has provided numerous area individuals with the opportunity to earn their college degrees at UIS and become teachers.”

Mark and Julie Staley are contributing to the “Reaching Stellar” campaign in many important ways, including by providing financial support for scholarships, the Student Union and athletic facilities. Julie also serves on the campaign planning committee. “Investing in UIS means investing in the future of this community,” says Julie. “We’re always honored to support scholarships and bring more ways for students to get the help they need to pay for college.” “The proposed Center for Lincoln Studies is also incredibly important,” she adds. “Lincoln changed the world forever, and it is the duty and honor of UIS to keep his legacy alive – nowhere else would such a center be so important.”

As I conclude this column, I’m reflecting on a new favorite quote now posted next to Heiskell’s. It’s from Dennis Sedlak, an early SSU/UIS alum who created a scholarship at UIS for students (like he once was) who need financial help to accomplish their aspiration to earn a college degree. Speaking at the annual UIS Scholarship Luncheon a few weeks ago, Sedlak expressed the personal satisfaction he’s gained from meeting his scholarship recipients.

“Whenever we give, whatever we give,” he said, “it always comes back.” I’m so grateful to the many UIS supporters who, like donors mentioned in this column, are expressing their confidence in the future of UIS with their generous financial support and who — like Dennis Sedlak — appreciate seeing their gifts “come back.”

          Urban Meyer to retire after Rose Bowl      Cache   Translate Page      
Ohio State’s next game will come against Washington in the Rose Bowl on New Year’s Day, and that will be the last one Urban Meyer coaches for the Buckeyes. According to a report from Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports, Meyer will step down as the head coach at Ohio State following the season. Offensive coordinator Ryan Day, who served as interim head coach when Meyer was suspended earlier this season, will take over as the team’s full-time coach. Several factors contributed to Meyer’s decision to retire, but Thamel reports that his confidence in Day is foremost among them. Meyer believes the program will be in great shape with the 39-year-old taking over and views the situation as similar to when Bob Stoops left Oklahoma in 2017 and Lincoln Riley became head coach. Ohio State is expected to announce the move on Tuesday, as the school wants to be transparent with recruits going forward.

INFORMATION ABOUT REV. CHARLES H. NICKS
From http://museum.msu.edu/museum/tes/gospel/nicks.htm
"When Charles H. Nicks, Jr. became the organist for the St. James Baptist Church in Detroit in 1957, a thirty-year success story was begun, one which continued throughout his pastorate of the church. His recordings with the St. James Adult Choir, which captured the "feel" of the traditional Black Baptist church, helped to strengthen Detroit's position as a major center for gospel music.

Rev. Nicks was born in Lincoln, NE, July 18,1941, to the Reverend Charles Nicks, Sr., a Baptist pastor, and Alliece Nicks, a pianist who was his first musical influence. After extensive training in classical and gospel music, Rev. Nicks developed on organ style that attracted students from around the country who wanted to learn how he made the Hammond organ "talk."

A founding member of the Gospel Music Workshop of America, he was also organist for the Harold Smith Majestics and a respected record producer. Rev. Nicks, who died in 1988, was celebrated for composing and/or singing several gospel classics, including "He's So Real," "Something About God's Grace," and "I Really Love the Lord."

Under the direction of Jimmy Dowell, the St. James Adult Choir continues to perform in the traditional style that first brought them and Rev. Nicks into the national spotlight."

"Rev. Charles H. Nicks, Jr., was called as the fifth pastor of St. James Missionary Baptist Church in April, 1972

The following achievements for the Lord were realized under the pastorship of Rev. Nicks:
...Leader of the National Baptist Church Music Department - Artist for countless musical recordings - Facilitator for may nationally televised productions - Vice President and leader for the Gospel Music Workshop of America [GMWA} - Leader of many other local and national organizations to numerous to be counted"...

LYRICS FOR THE GOSPEL SONG "HOLD BACK THE NIGHT"
(composed by Rev. Charles Nicks)*

Here's a comment from the comment thread for one of the videos that was published in the 2014 pancocojams post on this song whose link is given above (I'm sorry I didn't note which video that is)
k cooper, 2008
"I was a member of the St. James Adult Choir. Here are the lyrics to HOLD BACK THE NIGHT: Chorus: Hold Back the Night give me strength to fight. I'll do your will if you just say to my storm, peace be still. O Lord, I love your name, every day you're just the same. I'll be alright, if you Hold Back the Night. Verse: The storm is raging all around. Satan is trying to pull me down. Lord you told me, in your word I could abide. So stretch forth your mighty hand and Hold Back the Night."
-snip-
Here are those lyrics in song format:

Chorus [sung by the Choir]
Hold back the night.
Give me strength to fight.
I'll do Your will
If You just say to my storm
“Peace be still.”
Oh Lord, I love Your name.
Every day You're just the same.
I'll be all right
If You just hold back the night.

[repeat]

Solo: The storm is raging
All around.
Satan keeps tryin
To pull me down.
But Lord, You told me
In Your word I could abide.
So stretch forth Your mighty hand
And hold back the night.

[repeat]

[Choir sings the chorus with the soloist vamping.]
Vamping: To improvise a musical accompaniment, to improvise (an accompaniment, for example) for a solo, to improvise simple accompaniment or variation of a tune.

*Online information about the Gospel song "Hold Back The Night" is very difficult to find. However, I happened upon this website http://www.theafricanamericanlectionary.org/PopupWorshipAid.asp?LRID=96. That site gives suggested songs & their composers for a Men's Day and lists “Charles H. Nicks, Jr as the composer of "Hold Back The Night".

"Hold Back The Night" is also the title of a 1990 Gospel album by Rev. Charles H. Nicks & The St. James Adult Choir. That album features that song and other songs that would now be considered "old school Gospel".

It seems very clear to me that "Hold Back The Night" Gospel song lyrics directly refer to the New Testament verses which recount the story of Jesus calming the waves that threatened to overturn the boat that he and his disciples were traveling in on the Sea of Galilee. This is the same Biblical story that is the theme of Rev. James Cleveland and the Angelic Choir of Nutley, New Jersey's hugely popular 1962 or 1963 record "Peace Be Still". Notice the inclusion of the words "Peace Be Still" in the Gospel song "Hold Back The Night".

Click http://www.mainlesson.com/display.php?author=hurlbut&book=bible&story=peace for a link to that Biblical story told in contemporary Standard American English. Also, click https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rb4Vjey1WsM for a sound file of that "Peace Be Still" record. By the way, that Rev. James Cleveland recording also features keyboardist Billy Preston, who was very highly regarded for his accompaniment on Gospel recordings as well as his popular secular records.

19. David Robinson, 2015
"I love the classic, soulful gospel music of Rev. Charles Nicks, Jr. I have been in music ministry for almost 40 years. I grew up in Detroit, but did not start playing gospel music on piano and organ until my college years at Morehouse College in Atlanta. I played at the Shrines of the Black Madonna where we sang (and I taught) many of his songs. Even in churches where I play after that time period, I still teach and play those songs for choirs - O Give Thanks," "I'm So Grateful," "Take the Name of Jesus" (I wish I had that album), "If You Ever Needed the Lord," "I Really Love the Lord," "Search Me Lord," "There's a Stranger In Town" (RIP Ortheia Barnes-Kennerly), "I Need Him," "Never Turn Back," "I Love to Praise His Name," "I'm Free," "Come and Go With Me to My Father's House," "Come Unto Jesus," "There Is No Failure in God," "He's So Real," "These Are the Times," and the list goes on. My father who worked at the University of Michigan as assistant admissions director and in charge of minority recruitment would come to Rev. Nick's church and recruit students. His songs are popular here in Atlanta as well as Detroit. Rev. Nicks is certainly a legend. I had the pleasure to attend their "O Give Thanks" concert in 1978 at Detroit's Ford Auditorium."

Sin ser el salón del automóvil más grande del mundo, o siquiera de la región, el Auto Show de Los Ángeles siempre abre sus puertas muy cargado de novedades para todo Norteamérica e incluso con algunas primicias mundiales. La cita de este año la atendieron todo tipo de vehículos: prototipos, sedanes, coches eléctricos, pick-ups y, por supuesto, muchísimo SUV.

Por su cercanía con México y la fecha tan cercana al cambio de año, los estrenos del Auto Show de Los Ángeles siempre nos anticipan lo que veremos en nuestro país en los próximos meses, algunos todavía como modelo 2019 y otros ya como 2020. De los casi 30 lanzamientos de esta edición, más de la mitad están confirmados para nuestro país y unos cuantos más tienen fuertes posibilidades de cruzar la frontera.

Auto Show De Los Angeles 2018 31

¿Qué modelos veremos en México?

El primer modelo en llegar será justamente el protagonista del auto show, el Mazda 3 2019. Si los rumores son ciertos, estará a la venta en nuestro país a finales de este mismo mes; si no, estará llegando durante las primeras semanas de 2019.

KIA también presentó algunos lanzamientos importantes para nuestro país, como es el caso de la nueva generación del Soul, exhibida en variantes GT-Line, X-Line y EV. También se exhibió al Forte GT, listo para comercializarse en México con motor turbo de 201 hp, para competir contra el Volkswagen Jetta GLI que debutará en Detroit en enero.

Auto Show De Los Angeles 2018 19

De la mano de marcas japonesas llegarán los facelifts de Nissan Maxima y Murano, y un par de sedanes de Toyota: la nueva generación del Corolla, que además se estrenó en variante híbrida —poco probable ver esta versión en México... por el momento— y la actualización de media vida del Prius, que en Estados Unidos estrenará tracción integral.

Jeep, por su parte, exhibió su primera pick-up en décadas, el Gladiator. Fue creado a partir de la misma base mecánica y estética del Wrangler, uno de los todoterrenos más emblemáticos del mundo. Llegaá a México en primavera de 2019.

Auto Show De Los Angeles 2018 24

Las marcas de lujo también anunciaron novedades que se incorporarán a su gama en México en el transcurso de los siguientes meses: el facelift del Audi R8, el nuevo Bentley Continental GT Convertible, los BMW Serie 8 Convertible y M340i, el imponente Lincoln Aviator, la actualización del Mercedes-AMG GT, la nueva generación del Porsche 911 y el segundo episodio en la historia del Range Rover Evoque.

En el salón se presentaron algunos otros modelos con posibilidad de llegar a México, aunque su lanzamiento no haya sido confirmado. Tal es el caso del Honda Passport, del Toyota Camry TRD, del Volkswagen Beetle Final Edition, del Toyota Corolla Sedán Hybrid, el Hyundai Palisade y del facelift de Fiat 500X.

Giornata mondiale contro la schiavitù, 10 libri da leggere

MILANO - Capire la schiavitù attraverso i libri. Il 2 dicembre in tutto il mondo si celebra la giornata mondiale contro la schiavitù. È stata scelta questa data per ricordare il giorno del 1949 nel quale l'Assemblea generale Onu approvò la Convenzione sulla soppressione del traffico di persone e lo sfruttamento della prostituzione altrui. Molti possono pensare che la schiavitù sia un fenomeno superato, ma le cose stanno in tutt'altro modo, e non solo nei paesi in via di sviluppo o nei regimi dittatoriali. In questo giorno particolare, vogliamo proporvi alcuni consigli di lettura, romanzi di autori molto diversi fra loro, che raccontano periodi, storie, forme di schiavitù anche molto differenti l'una dall'altra. Dai Caraibi di Isabel Allende al libro che ha inaugurato il genere, “La capanna dello Zio Tom” di Harriet Beecher Stowe. Dieci romanzi, dieci momenti di riflessione e di crescita.

.

LA CAPANNA DELLO ZIO TOM di Harriet Beecher Stowe

Arthur Shelby, possidente gentile di una grande piantagione in America, decide di vendere il vecchio zio Tom, generoso schiavo nero a cui è molto affezionato, a Haley, feroce mercante di schiavi. Tom non può che accettare, ma il futuro potrebbe avere in serbo un destino diverso per lui. Il libro, che sosteneva le tesi abolizioniste, divenne in breve tempo un best-seller del XIX secolo (secondo per numero di vendite solo alla Bibbia). Per molti critici ha avuto anche un ruolo importante nell'alimentare la causa antischiavista, tanto che quando Abraham Lincoln incontrò l'autrice all'inizio della guerra civile americana dichiarò: “Allora questa è la piccola signora che ha scatenato questa grande guerra”.

.

L'ISOLA SOTTO IL MARE di Isabel Allende

La storia della schiava nera Zarité Sedella, soprannominata Teté, si svolge tra i Caraibi e la Lousiana dal 1770 al 1810. Dopo vicissitudini, soprusi e violenze, che portano il lettore a vivere in prima persona tutti i tormenti della vita in schiavitù, alla fine la coraggiosa donna arriverà a conquistare la propria libertà. Il romanzo non solo mostra senza filtri o abbellimenti la vita degli schiavi, ma porta anche a contatto con la mentalità dei padroni, dei bianchi. Sono proprio le idee di questi personaggi quelle che lasciano chi legge più sbigottito. E pensare che questo fenomeno non è passato, ma sono ancora tantissime le persone che vivono una condizione del genere.

.

LA SCHIAVA BAMBINA di Diaryatou Bah

Il matrimonio per lei non è altro che una prigione dove la sua infanzia si è spezzata, una gabbia in cui l'hanno costretta e dove la sua volontà è annientata, stritolata dalle violenze quotidiane che suo marito le infligge. Ma Diaryatou ha trovato il coraggio di ribellarsi. Un nuovo doloroso sguardo sulla condizione femminile. Perché la schiavitù non è solo quella del passato. È anche una condizione che vivono donne, uomini e bambini in tutto il mondo.

.

AMATISSIMA di Toni Morrison

Il tragico percorso di Sethe, indomabile donna nera all'epoca della guerra civile americana, per la conquista della libertà. Attraverso la schiavitù, l'amore materno e il peso di un indicibile segreto.

.

RADICI di Alex Haley

Premio Bancarella 1978. Nella seconda metà del Settecento il giovane Kunta Kinte viene strappato dal suo villaggio africano e portato in America come schiavo. La sua vita cambierà, come quella dei suoi discendenti: Bell, Kizzy, Chicken George e tutti gli altri, fino a giungere ad Alex Haley, l'autore di queste pagine.

.

SCHIAVA di Mende Nazer

Sudan. All'età di dodici anni Mende Nazer viene catturata dalla milizia araba durante un brutale assalto. Deportata nella capitale Khartoum, la ragazzina vive come schiava, sfruttata, umiliata e picchiata. Nel 2000 la ricca famiglia araba di cui è la "yenit", la "ragazza", la serva, decide di venderla a dei parenti che vivono a Londra. Schiava nella casa di un diplomatico dell'ambasciata sudanese a Londra, la donna riesce finalmente a scappare e, con l'aiuto di un giornalista, a raccontare la sua storia.

.

THE HELP di Kathryn Stockett

È l'estate del 1962 quando Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan torna a vivere in famiglia a Jackson, in Mississippi, dopo aver frequentato l'università lontano da casa. Skeeter è molto diversa dalle sue amiche di un tempo, già sposate e perfettamente inserite in un modello di vita borghese, e sogna in segreto di diventare scrittrice. Aibileen è una domestica di colore. Saggia e materna, ha allevato amorevolmente uno dopo l'altro diciassette bambini bianchi, facendo le veci delle loro madri spesso assenti. Ma il destino è stato crudele con lei, portandole via il suo unico figlio. Minny è la sua migliore amica. Il profondo Sud degli Stati Uniti fa da cornice a questa opera prima che ruota intorno ai sentimenti, all'amicizia e alla forza che può scaturire dal sostegno reciproco.

.

 

MEMORIE DI UNO SCHIAVO FUGGIASCO di Frederick Douglass

L'autobiografia di Frederick Douglass, scritta nel 1845, costituisce la prima e fondamentale descrizione della schiavitù e degli schiavisti narrata da un nero, ed è stata uno dei punti di partenza del movimento abolizionista. Asciutte e vibranti, queste memorie di un grande intellettuale nero si leggono oggi come un testo di freschezza sorprendente. Il protagonista ci appare un 'picaro' deciso a non farsi mettere sotto i piedi da nessuno, buoni o cattivi che siano i suoi padroni del momento. La sua abilità di sopravvivenza, che ridicolizza il mondo bianco a cui Douglass rivolge uno sguardo irriverente, genera un moto irresistibile di simpatia che fa di questo prezioso, piccolo libro un classico della letteratura americana. Il volume è introdotto da Alessandro Portelli, uno dei più noti americanisti e studiosi della cultura afroamericana. In appendice il più celebre discorso del leader nero, pronunciato a Rochester (N. Y.) il 5 luglio 1852.

.

LA COSTA DEGLI SCHIAVI di Thorkild Hansen

La Danimarca fu il primo paese ad abolire il traffico degli schiavi. Ma quel traffico continuerà per decenni dopo l'abolizione ufficiale, e nessuno schiavo ha mai raccontato la sua storia: per dar voce a quelle migliaia di esseri umani privati della libertà e trascinati dall'altra parte dell'oceano. L'autore va a cercare le tracce dei loro passi nella Guinea danese, l'attuale Ghana, lungo le rive del Volta, tra le rovine dei forti che dominavano con le loro mura bianche quella costa bordata di palme e battuta dalla risacca. E come guida si serve di diari, lettere, documenti lasciati da sette "testimoni oculari" che si sono succeduti nel corso di due secoli tra quelle mura: un tenente, due sacerdoti, un mercante, un medico, un contabile e un governatore.

 

LO SCHIAVO DI ROMA di Steven Saylor

Nel 72 a.C. Roma è alle corde, ripetutamente sconfitta da un esercito che non proviene dalle barbare lande del Nord né dalle terre nemiche dell'Asia, bensì dalla stessa penisola. È l'esercito di Spartaco, che, coi suoi schiavi ribelli, sta mettendo a ferro e fuoco la Campania e il sud dell'Italia. E proprio a due schiavi in fuga da una villa nei pressi di Pozzuoli viene attribuito l'omicidio di Lucio Licinio, cugino del potente Marco Licinio Crasso. Il cadavere, sfigurato, è stato rinvenuto nell'atrium; accanto al corpo c'è soltanto un lembo di mantello intriso di sangue e sei lettere incise nel pavimento di marmo: SPARTA.

It’s been two full regular seasons without Bob Stoops on the sideline. Today, Urban Meyer formally announced he’d be joining the ranks of his coaching colleague as a retired coach following their Rose Bowl game.

          Here are 7 reasons overworked and underpaid workers on the U.S. coasts should move to Middle America      Cache   Translate Page      
Money stretches a lot further when you’re paying a reasonable rent.

If you live on the East or West Coast, you’ve probably been subjected to increasingly expensive rents, food, clothing, and more—tiresome commutes, working multiple jobs to pay the bills, and the exhaustion that comes with the frustration of not being able to do more of what you want.

Unfortunately, the trajectory of ever-increasing rents and cost of living expenses is probably not going to reverse any time soon.

In the Heartland, though, more and more people are finding space to accomplish what they might not be able to elsewhere.

Here are the things you can find in Middle America that aren’t all that common on the East or West Coasts.

1. Affordable Rent

Rent in Dayton, Ohio, can be had for a few hundred dollars. A three-bedroom house in Dayton’s up-and-coming South Park is just $750 a month. Houses in the “rich” parts of Middle America can be found for less than $500,000. A friend recently purchased an eight-unit apartment building in a small Midwestern college town for just $170,000. Your quality of life can dramatically improve while spending the same as, or less than, what you’re currently paying on rent—and even provide the opportunity to purchase or invest in property for less than what you would pay in rent on the East or West Coast.

2. Affordable Nights Out

I recently went to purchase a shot of top-top shelf liquor at a popular bar in Lincoln, Nebraska, and almost fell over when the bartender asked me for $4. The people I was with were concerned that was too much money. No, I explained; I just had never paid so little for good liquor before. In Middle America, a Jack and Coke could cost as little as $2. Some of these states, like Michigan, even have legalized marijuana. Other places offer incredible deals at high-quality restaurants, cafes, and luxury boutique hotels—places and quality that are rare, if ever, treats when you’re spending thousands on rent.

3. Affordable Small Businesses

Small bookstores, cafes, clothing stores, boutique hat shops, candy stores—all sorts of fun small businesses can be found in Middle America that, if you’re an entrepreneur, you might not be able to afford to open—and keep open—on the coasts. Low-cost commercial rents and even cooperative electric utilities create an opportunity for people to experiment and try their hand at something that might seem impossible elsewhere, like a shop that just sells licorice. It makes shopping more fun because you’re looking at truly unique items, and the items are actually affordable.

4. More Time

For the professional who is accustomed to grinding for rent 14-18 hours a day, Middle America has space for people to earn money in an 8-hour day, leaving people with more time. Businesses are often still closed entirely on Sundays, leaving that day free for spending time with friends and loved ones. When one friend on a Sunday recently asked what time it was, the response was “It’s Sunday”—who cares what time it is when there is nowhere to run off to and no deadline to meet that day? It can be an adjustment, but the stress and tension of always running eventually melt away.

5. More Space to Do More of What You Love

Have you been itching to try something new—a new theater production, a street festival, impromptu marching bands, or perhaps an outdoor punk rock acupuncture festival? That might be a logistical nightmare in Brooklyn, but in Middle America, there might be some stoic resistance, but along with that often comes a “Huh. Let’s give that a try.” There’s a welcoming beginner energy. Because there simply isn’t a lot of stuff happening, people are surprisingly up and open to trying new things that, perhaps, they might be too busy for elsewhere. The adage “if you build it they will come” is actually true.

6. Money to Invest

With less money being spent on everything from rent to the club, there’s more money for saving, investing, or buying the new items you might not be able to afford in New York or Los Angeles. Property is cheap, but don’t let the stories of Detroit’s comeback (and now crazily overpriced property) discourage you. America is filled with old towns just waiting for someone to come in and do something good.

7. It’s Not All Scary Red States

There’s an idea in some parts of the East and West Coasts that Middle America is scary: Racist, homophobic, Trump-supporting, scary white people. That just isn’t the case. Most of those states would’ve gone Bernie over Trump in a heartbeat had they been given the chance. There are people of color and immigrants all over Middle America—people from Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America, who live in the “flyover” states and have brought their cultures and delicious food with them. There are hip pockets everywhere, from Columbus to Lincoln, Winona to Knoxville, Grand Rapids to Milwaukee. The internet makes it seem like these places aren’t cool, but there are already cool people out there.

Middle America is not the Middle America of Fox News. You just need to be brave enough to check it out. The opportunities there might surprise you.

          VIDEO: Get A First Look At CT Rep's A CIVIL WAR CHRISTMAS      Cache   Translate Page      

Connecticut Repertory Theatre (CRT) continues its 2018-19 season with Paula Vogel's "A Civil War Christmas: An American Musical Celebration." Elizabeth VanDyke will direct. Performances will be held in the Harriet S. Jorgenson Theatre from November 29th - December 9th, 2018. For tickets and information please visit crt.uconn.edu or call (860) 486-2113.

Christmas, 1864. With the nation at war, it is not a silent night. All is not peaceful or bright. On one side of the Potomac, an escaped slave hurries her daughter toward the capital and freedom. On the other side, a young Confederate runs away from home with hopes of joining the fight. In the capital, Mrs. Lincoln is in desperate need of the perfect gift for her husband Abe. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel creates a historical and musical masterpiece in "A Civil War Christmas," one that is uniquely American. In the shadow of our own partisan divide, can the nation put aside its differences and share in the hope and generosity the Christmas season has to offer, and the promise of Christmas future?

The ensemble cast is led by Tony Award-nominee Forrest McClendon. McClendon is a UCONN alum and grew up in Connecticut. He last appeared onstage at Connecticut Repertory Theatre in "Peter and the Starcatcher" in 2016.

Forrest McClendon is a Tony Award nominee for his Broadway debut as Mr. Tambo in "The Scottsboro Boys," first created at the Vineyard and Guthrie Theaters. Post-Broadway, Forrest received a Barrymore Award for his reprisal of the role at the Philadelphia Theatre Company.

Forrest received his Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from UConn, and made his professional debut as the Padre in "Man of La Mancha" at Nutmeg Summer Theatre. A recipient of the prestigious Lunt-Fontanne Fellowship, Forrest's nationwide appearances in plays and musicals range from the Foundling Father in Suzan-Lori Parks'; "The America Play" (B. Iden Payne Award) to Roscoe in "Avenue X" (Barrymore Award) by Ray Leslee (music) and John Jiler (lyrics). His recent Off-Broadway credits include "Cabin in the Sky" (City Center Encores), "Their Eyes Were Watching God" (Billie Holiday Theatre), as well as developmental readings of the musical "The Waves" with Raul Esparza and Sutton Foster, and the play "Thoughts of a Colored Man" directed by Taye Diggs.

Tabatha Gayle is an AEA Jamaican-Asian performer, multidisciplinary creative, and activist based in NYC. A 2018 BFA Acting graduate of the University of Connecticut, she performed with the Connecticut Repertory Theater in productions such as 'The Importance of Being Earnest' (Gwendolen), 'Shrek The Musical' (Humpty Dumpty/Soloist), and 'Our Country's Good' (Mary Brenham). Gayle has worked with The Resident Acting Company of New York on productions such as 'Electra,' directed by Margarett Perry, and 'Big Night' (Vera Murphy). Recent Off-Broadway credits include "If Sand Were Stone" at the New York Musical Festival and her self-written play, 'Misogynoir,' which debuted at Ars Nova and returned to the Prelude Festival 2018 in October.

Director Elizabeth Van Dyke serves as the Producing Artistic Director of Going to the River and The River Crosses River: A Festival of Short Plays by Women of Color. These programs support and champion the work of African-American Female playwrights and women playwrights of color. The artistic home-base for these programs is the Ensemble Studio Theatre in New York City. Directorial credits include: "The Ballad of Emmit Till" (Giorgee Award, Best Director), "Gee's Bend," "From Sun to Sun," "Great Men of Gospel: Spirit into Sound" (Audelco Award, Best Director), "A Raisin in the Sun," "Waiting to be Invited," "The Piano Lesson," "Sophisticated Ladies" (Onyx Award, Best Director & Best Musical Production of the Year), "The Old Settler, "Sweet Mama Stringbean," "For Colored Girls," "Ti Jean and His Brother," "Remembering Weselves: The Black Renaissance."

I usually don’t expect November to be a busy month. But this year, November turned out to be one of the busiest months I’ve ever had and a whole lot of fun. My sisters and I hit the road to visit one of Rachel’s friends down in the DMV area for a weekend, visited Central Park to see the fall foliage, and went to upstate New York to catch Jo Koy on his ‘Break the Mold’ tour. My brother-in-law arrived just before Thanksgiving, so there were plenty of good meals, a successful escape room attempt, nights finishing up a 2000 piece puzzle, and a lovely Thanksgiving. There were also plenty of catch-ups with family and friends over dinner and dessert, a ton of Christmas shopping done, cat sitting for my favorite nephmews, a couple of book signings, a visit to the New York Public Library before opening hours and catching some of our extended family in a musical performance at the Lincoln Center.


I had a pretty solid reading month, finishing with a total of 12 books (10 new-to-me reads and 2 rereads). I had been hoping for more, but hey, real life always takes precedence over my reading on any given day. My favorites of the books I did read were The Lying Woods, Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix, Girls of Paper and Fire, Before She Ignites, As She Ascends, When She Reigns and Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow.

          America Likes to Look at Its Dead Presidents      Cache   Translate Page      
by Ned Lannamann

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

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

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

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

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

Holders Chelsea will begin their FA Cup defence with a home tie against Nottingham Forest, while Arsenal could face non-league opposition in the third round. The Blues beat Manchester United 1-0 at Wembley in May thanks to an Eden Hazard penalty, in what proved to be Antonio Conte's last game as head coach. Championship Forest were 4-2 winners over Arsenal in the third round last season and Unai Emery's men could have a venture into the unknown if Solihull Moors of the National League can overcome League One Blackpool in a second-round replay. Premier League leaders Manchester City, who were knocked out by Wigan Athletic in the fifth round last season, entertain Rotherham United. City's neighbours United are also at home to Championship strugglers in the form of Reading. Liverpool will travel to Wolves in one of only two all-Premier League ties, with Bournemouth hosting Brighton and Hove Albion. Tottenham, still seeking their first trophy under Mauricio Pochettino, face a trip to Merseyside against either Southport of the National League North or League Two Tranmere Rovers.

          Rare December tornadoes reported in central U.S., killing 1      Cache   Translate Page      

TAYLORVILLE, Ill. – Residents in central Illinois on Sunday assessed damage after rare December tornadoes that ripped roofs off homes, downed power lines and injured at least 20 people the day before.

The severe weather in Illinois was part of a line of thunderstorms that raked areas of the central U.S. late Friday and into Saturday, killing one person in Missouri. Tornadoes were also reported in Arkansas and Oklahoma.

The National Weather Service sent crews Sunday to survey the hardest-hit areas in Illinois, which included Taylorville, 25 miles southeast of Springfield, Springfield’s State Journal-Register reported.

Photographs and video from Taylorville showed houses flattened, with residents wading into debris to salvage what they could. Some homes remained standing but with gaping holes in the roofs or with no roofs at all.

Assistant Fire Chief Andy Goodall spoke to reporters Saturday night shortly after the storms pounded the city of 11,000, saying at least 100 homes had major damage, including his own.

A Taylorville Memorial Hospital spokesman said 21 people, from age 9 to 97, arrived for treatment Saturday. Most were discharged within hours.

The National Weather Service has confirmed tornadoes in Oklahoma, Missouri and Illinois and was working to verify reports of tornadoes in Arkansas.

The National Weather Service says peak months for tornadoes in much of the Midwest are April and June.

It wasn’t only twisters that were a concern. So were heavy rain and strong winds. A 75 mph wind gust at Springfield’s Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport on Saturday evening set a December wind speed record for the Illinois capital, the State Journal-Register reported.


          An echo of history as Locomotive 4141 carries George H.W. Bush to his final resting place      Cache   Translate Page      

HOUSTON – When the curtain parted in College Station, Texas, revealing a two-toned blue locomotive standing nearly 16 feet tall and bearing the number 4141 in his honor, former president George H.W. Bush looked around excitedly, his face breaking into a smile.

One word left his lips: Wow.

Thirteen years later, that same Union Pacific locomotive will escort the 41st president to his final resting place in College Station on Thursday afternoon after funeral ceremonies in Washington and Houston.

The train carrying his remains will leave a Union Pacific Railroad facility in Spring, a community north of Houston, and travel the 70 miles to College Station. Bush will be buried there, alongside his late wife and daughter, on the site of his presidential library at Texas A&M University.

The locomotive, painted the same blue colors that adorned Air Force One during Bush’s presidency, was unveiled by the company in October 2005. At the time, Bush was fascinated by the train’s mechanics and asked whether he could take it for a spin, according to Mike Iden, a retired Union Pacific general director of car and locomotive engineering.

After some brief training and under the supervision of an engineer, “the former president operated the locomotive for about two miles,” Iden said.

An Associated Press article at the time said the unveiling stirred memories in Bush of his childhood travels with his family. “We just rode on the railroads all the time, and I’ve never forgotten it,” the AP quoted Bush as saying.

During previous centuries, numerous presidents incorporated trains into their funeral proceedings. Abraham Lincoln’s body – with that of his son, Willie, who had died three years earlier – was carried by train more than 1,600 miles from Washington to Springfield, Illinois. The slain leader’s portrait was affixed to the front of the engine for the entirety of the trip.

The remains of Ulysses Grant, James Garfield, William McKinley, Warren Harding and Franklin Roosevelt also took their final journeys by rail. The last such cortege, for Dwight Eisenhower in 1969, involved a specially prepared baggage car. The train traveled through seven states – Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Missouri – before reaching its final destination in Kansas.

“It’s an opportunity for a large swath of the population to pay their final respects to someone who has done so much for our country,” Scott Moore, a Union Pacific senior vice president, noted in a news release Saturday about the plans for Bush’s funeral week. “Having a train like this pulled by a locomotive specifically about this man is just really unprecedented.”

The route from Spring to College Station will pass through several towns, including Hufsmith, Pinehurst, Magnolia and Navasota. Hufsmith is barely a dot on the map these days. As the Texas State Historical Association details, “By the 1980s only a cemetery, an abandoned railroad station and scattered dwellings remained.”

But two miles away, the mayor of Tomball fondly remembers Bush’s visit for the city’s centennial celebration in 2007. It was the first time a president past or present had been there, according to news reports at the time.

“He came out, and we presented him with a key to the city, and he actually kissed me on the cheek,” Mayor Gretchen Fagan said. “My mother-in-law said that she got home and there were messages on her voice mail saying, ‘Oh my gosh, the president of the United States just kissed your daughter-in-law!’ ”

Bush took pictures with people for over an hour after the event. “It was such a pleasure,” Fagan recalled. “The people of Tomball were just so excited.”

Navasota Mayor Bert Miller says he’s not sure whether Bush ever visited the city, but he has memories of campaigning for him in 1980.

“I remember – with my grandfather – doing some politicking for him back when he was vice president with President (Ronald) Reagan,” Miller said Saturday. “I was real young at the time.”

Navasota is about 20 miles from Bush’s presidential library at Texas A&M, where Miller has been “many times.” Touring the library is listed as one of the “things to do” on the Visit Navasota website.

The former president had been a regular fixture on Texas A&M’s campus since his library opened there in 1997. According to its website, he occasionally dropped in on classes at the Bush School of Government and Public Service and was even spotted at the rec center when in good health.

By car, the ride from Houston to College Station typically takes 90 minutes, but the announced schedule for Locomotive 4141 will be twice as long. The university said Saturday that the president’s casket would be unloaded at a railroad stop near campus. The funeral procession will then travel down George Bush Drive, with a brief arrival ceremony followed by a private interment. The campus will be closed Thursday.


          La MaMa Announces THE SHELL-SHOCKED NUT      Cache   Translate Page      

From December 20 to 23, La MaMa Experimental Theater in association the GOH Productions will present the fourth annual production of East Village Dance Project's The Shell-Shocked Nut, an alternative Nutcracker set in the East Village, featuring an intergenerational cast of dancers and musicians. The piece is recommended for family audiences.

In this unconventional take on the seasonal staple, a wandering child and a war veteran suffering from PTSD take a magical voyage through the East Village. The pair of characters visit Tompkins Square Park, Economy Candy Store, Saint Mark's Place, and other iconic East Village landmarks while exploring themes of loss and recovery.

The New York Times said of the Shell-Shocked Nut, "The East Village has a "Nutcracker" of its own and, fittingly, it's on the gritty side." Time Out NY chose the production as a "Critics' Pick".

The Shell-Shocked Nut is conceived and directed by Martha Tornay and co-directed by Victoria Roberts-Wierzbowski. The pair also spearhead East Village Dance Project (EVDP), a dance development program that has offered after-school classes in ballet, modern and choreography in lower Manhattan since 1997.

The show first emerged as a studio showing in the weeks after Superstorm Sandy created as a means of brightening spirits after a challenging time for the community. "I started thinking about the cathartic process of working through a stressful situation," Tornay said.

The sister and daughter of war veterans, Tornay was inspired to use the structure of the Nutcracker to tell a more personal story of the effects of trauma, while maintaining the accessible, family-friendly nature of the traditional ballet.

In the years following its inception, the piece has grown to a full-scale production, featuring young students from the dance program alongside an array of professional performers, artists and guest choreographers from NYC and beyond. The 2018 Guest Artists include the New Mexico-based Aerial group, Project in Motion; Detroit-based dance artists Shaina and Bryan Baira; and New York City performers Delaney McDonough, Indah Walsh, Chloe London, Xiao Quan, Lauren Kravitz, Ellen Maynard and OBIE-winning scenic designer Donald Eastman.

Local composer Clare Farris created original pieces for the show, based off the Tchaikovsky score. The show also includes sections of Tchaikovsky in its unadulterated state, Massachusetts-based musician/composer Peter Jones, and contemporary tracks by Duke Ellington, David Lowery, Lynn Anderson, Aretha Franklin and more.

The Shell-Shocked Nut will run from Dec. 20-23, Thurs to Sat at 7PM; Sunday at 3PM. Tickets are $20 and $15 seniors, students and children 12 and under, and can be purchased online at lamama.org or at the Box Office: (212) 352-3101

FUNDING: The East Village Dance Project and this project are supported, in part with public funds from the National Endowment for the Arts; and with support from private donors.

GOH Productions' mission is embodied in our logo, GOH, the Japanese character meaning "working together under one roof." That definition informs all the organization's work - collaborative and expansive, stretching the sky to its fullest capacity. GOH began in 1979, during a time of fiscal cutbacks and political turmoil; and faces, head-on, the challenges of nurturing artworks and artistic collaboration, testing the boundaries and borders of all categories. GOH has a primary goal of working with experimental and interdisciplinary artists to clarify their artistic vision and to make possible the production of new works in a variety of genres and in a variety of global landscapes. In the mid-1970s, GOH was founded as 7 Loaves, Inc. a non-profit arts producing and presenting organization in the Lower East Side/East Village of New York City. In 1988 the organization's name was changed to GOH Productions (GOH), and Bonnie Sue Stein became its Artistic and Executive Director, a position she still holds.

          The Man Who Made the Supreme Court      Cache   Translate Page      

A review of John Marshall: The Man Who Made the Supreme Court (Basic Books, 2018) by Richard Brookhiser John Marshall presents a curious problem for Southern history. How can a man, born and bred in the same State, who breathed the same air and shared the same blood with Thomas Jefferson, have been such an ardent nationalist? The same question could be asked of Washington, and to a lesser extent, Henry Clay and Abraham Lincoln. The answer in Marshall’s case is perhaps best explained by his opposition to Jefferson’s Republican faction. Marshall feared both a French-inspired revolution on American soil and the … Continue reading

          South Beach Chanukah      Cache   Translate Page      

Yesterday evening, walking down Lincoln Road, I found a small group gathered in front of a menorah. A young woman held a long pole with a flame at the end; the smell of burning oil mingled with the scent of fried potatoes, as a covered tray of latkes sat behind a table. Many of the men wore yarmulkes.

At six, three visitors from Israel were handed the pole to light two candles. I took a photo with my smartphone, and then posted in on Instagram, double-checking to see that I spelled Chanukah correctly.

          Lincoln and Wilson on a Dissident Press      Cache   Translate Page      
When you open up your Smartphone, since no one buys a newspaper, the headlines contain a daily reminder that the press remains an enemy of the people. Justice Douglas wrote, “Acceptance by government of a dissident press is a measure of the maturity of a nation, yet tolerance is sometimes pressed to the limits.” The current administration resembles an adolescent in almost every way. And that’s what makes it so frightening.  However, commenting and creating press shackles existed before Trump and they will exist again. We need to react in ways that keep our liberties granted. We require opposition. Abraham Lincoln In his previous life, President Lincoln owned a newspaper and had a fondness for the press. However, as the Civil War raged on, many papers held the President in contempt. They would print stories that gave aid and information to the enemy. This included spy operations, movement of troops, and the placement of guns. One particular thorn in…

          The unofficial Goldman Sachs holiday gift guide for 2018      Cache   Translate Page      

The new Bad Harriet bar at the Hotel Jerome in Aspen

  • This year's "Unofficial Goldman Sachs Holiday Gift Guide" features an expensive and eclectic variety of products.
  • They include rare artifacts, historical documents, luxurious cars, high-end apparel, as well as unique and whimsical gift ideas for the gadabout in your life.
  • Prices range all the way from six bucks to $2.4 million.

Once again, it's time for children everywhere to learn one of life's most valuable lessons: Santa loves rich kids more.

This year's list (our 6th edition) is the only gift guide you'll need, wherein the practical meets the fantastical, the everyday meets the outlandish, with a token amount of benevolence.

It's not simply a function of budget. Of course, most men are happy to receive the things they feel guilty buying or are too lazy to buy for themselves. But what they really want are the things they didn't even know they wanted.

John LeFevre is the creator of satirical @GSElevator on Twitter, and the author of the best-selling book, "Straight to Hell: True Tales of Deviance, Debauchery, and Billion-Dollar Deals," now in development with Paramount as a major motion picture.

For his house

Until we can make oil great again, these are all out of my price range. But this year, I would have my eye on the only copy of "Schindler’s List" ($2.4 million) to ever be on the market, from the family of Itzhak Stern (Schindler’s accountant, played in the movie by Ben Kingsley), the only known uncanceled and uncut George Washington check ($60,000), and an original 1863 signed photograph of Abraham Lincoln ($80,000). Or for someone who loves the intersection of natural history and art, there’s this stunningly large Iridescent fossilized Ammonite ($40,000) or this Fossilized Wall Mounted Jurassic Crocodile ($350,000).



For his library

If you’ve been following the 1MDB saga that brings together Goldman Sachs, $4.5 billion in misappropriated funds, a confiscated megayacht, and Leonardo DiCaprio’s Picasso, you’ll enjoy Tom Wright and Bradley Hope’s “Billion Dollar Whale: The Man Who Fooled Wall Street, Hollywood, and the World” ($19). My other picks include John Carreyrou’s “Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup” ($13), Jane Leavy’s “The Big Fella: Babe Ruth and the World He Created” ($21), Greg Lukianoff’s “The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure” ($13), and Hollywood super-agent Michael Ovitz’s “Who Is Michael Ovitz” ($20). Or just gift the audio versions. If you read two hours a day, listening while driving or exercising, it frees up 1/8th of your life for other pursuits.



For his kitchen

Other than drinking and fly fishing, cooking is my primary form of therapy, as long as I don’t have to clean up after. This year, I like this Versaprime Sushi Maker ($91) especially if paired with this Yoshihiro Chef’s Sushi Knife ($1,800). Other unique and eclectic ideas include a Personalized BBQ Branding Iron ($20), Make Your Own Hot Sauce Kit ($50), Georg Jensen Champagne Cooler ($220), customized leather apron from Dutch specialty house Witloft ($200), and this novelty to address one of my holiday season pet peeves, a Double Dish Pistachio Snack Serving Bowl ($30).

          A Cluster of Northeast Kingdom Towns Copes with Consolidation      Cache   Translate Page      
Last year, second and third graders at Vermont's Holland Elementary School rejected their teacher's lesson plan and proposed one of their own — to write a history of Holland. According to the staple-bound book they published, the remote town on the Canadian border started its first school in a barn in 1811. By 1882, it had eight schools, which cost a collective $940.67 to run that year. As it turns out, the 10 students who wrote that book will be part of a pivotal new chapter for Holland; they're among the last kids to be educated there. In September, residents fearing that the state would force their district to merge with a nearby one voted to close the town's only remaining school next summer. The school, which serves 45 students from pre-K to sixth grade, is the center of civic life in Holland. It is, in fact, the only secular gathering spot in town. "We don't have a post office. We don't have a general store. We don't have anything except the school, a town shed and the church," said school board chair Lincoln Petell. "This is the hub of the community," confirmed school principal Kelli Dean. Throughout the year, spaghetti dinners, bingo nights and craft fairs serve both as school fundraisers and a reason for residents to come together. "When we have a Christmas concert, the gym is packed," Dean said. The single-story, warehouse-like building will remain, but the main reason to congregate there — the kids — will have gone away. What does that mean for this tiny Orleans County outpost? "Personally, I feel like the town is going to fall apart without the school," said Suzie Moulton, who's lived in town for 39 years and driven the school bus for 27. Every December, she ferries the students around town to sing carols to elderly residents. Moulton's daughter, who went to the school, now teaches there. "I just feel like everyone is going to go their separate ways," Moulton said. In its heyday, Holland had multiple farms and sawmills, two stores, and a creamery. According to U.S. Census Bureau figures, the town's population peaked in 1880 at 913. Then the sawmills shut down; later, dairy farms began to dwindle. Today, only seven farms remain, and the population hovers at just over 600. "People have just been scattering to the wind," Petell said. Last week, the only…

Megyn Kelly speaks onstage at Tina Brown's 7th Annual Women In The World Summit Opening Night at David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center on April 6, 2016 in New York City.

Megyn Kelly’s lawyers and NBC’s lawyers are close to reaching a deal that will leave the former anchor with $30 million. It will leave many of her former staff members without jobs, according to Raw Story.

The Today hour that Kelly used to host had its own set and its own staff, most of whom will be let go once the deal is finalized. NBC is ready to pay Kelly all the money left on her contract rather than argue it out in court. Kelly had inked a three-year deal with NBC and was only with the network for about half that time before she was let go.

Kelly came under fire for making controversial comments about wearing blackface for Halloween at the end of October. She disappeared from NBC soon after the incident.

          Spencer Day's Holiday Show Extends Through March at Green Room 42      Cache   Translate Page      

THE GREEN ROOM 42 - Broadway's new contemporary cabaret club - has announced the return of acclaimed singer and songwriter Spencer Day, who continues his debut residency on Friday, December 14 at 7:00 PM.

Spencer's holiday show "If Christmas Doesn't Kill Me," based on his single of the same name, will feature holiday favorites, Spencer's own special seasonal songs, in addition to pop and jazz standards. Due to packed houses and critical raves, his recurring show was extended with dates added on January 4 and March 22, 2019. The unique #1 Billboard charting pop/jazz performer who has appeared at venues from Lincoln Center to the Hollywood Bowl is headlining regular shows at the club, providing him with an opportunity to showcase his humor as well his diverse and eclectic original songs, material from his new album Angel City and interpretations of classic songs from Cole Porter to David Bowie. Day brings a spontaneity that feels new and fresh while simultaneously embracing the classic mood of a bygone era.

The video for the album's first single, "72 and Sunny," debuted on People.com, which praised the "the song's bright, hopeful lyrics with retro-themed visuals." He recently performed the song live on Fox TV's "Good Day New York." The album's second single, "Angel City," was the #1 Most Added track this week from the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart, in addition to being #1 Most Added track on the Groove Jazz Music Chart. Earlier this year his show won a rave review from All About Jazz, exclaiming "whether as performer or composer, Day showed a penchant for shadowy explorations of wayward souls and ephemeral relationships. Each was a modern classic of intimate proportions, wrapped in smoky delivery that lilted through every seamless key change."

Spencer's upcoming national tour dates include Martini's About Fourth in San Diego, CA (December 31), Rockwell Table & Stage in Los Angeles, CA (February 3, March 3 and April 7), The Palm Springs Arts Museum in Palm Springs, CA (March 11-13), and Blues Alley in Washington, DC (March 20).

Angel City, Day's seventh and latest album, was recorded at Capitol Records with the support of the 20 piece Budman-Levy Orchestra. Using the fabled city of Los Angeles as a backdrop, the recording continues Spencer's meditations on love, fame, narcissism, and how an artist can maintain integrity and authenticity. New Yorkers will be able to find their own parallels in the themes of the songs. The album's lyrics and melodies reveal something of a stylistic departure from Spencer's previous records, although you'll certainly find his unique blend of blue-eyed soul, pop and film noir moodiness from the classic jazz era. Incorporating slices of life from legends and nobodies, the city of dreams is built on projections and fantasy, light and darkness.

Spencer Day - born in Utah, raised in rural Arizona, and currently living in New York City - has wandered amid the expansive and diverse landscape of American music, developing an artistic sensibility that borrows from numerous sources: jazz, musical theater, cabaret, soul, folk, traditional and contemporary pop. He uses intuition and improvisation as his primary tools to craft a sound that is familiar, yet fresh and innovative at the same time. Day's album Vagabond peaked at #11 on the Billboard Album Chart and stayed on the chart for 47 weeks. The lead single, "Til You Come To Me," peaked at #3. His recent album, Daybreak, debuted at #1 on the iTunes Jazz Chart.

The Washington Post praised his "cool jazz sensibilities" and "cleverly crafted tales," with Time Out New York calling him "a compelling, quirky singer-songwriter." According to The San Francisco Chronicle, "his melodies are infectious, his arrangements are dazzling and, most of all, his delivery is heartfelt and, often, heartbreaking. He is not only a superb pianist, but a brilliant arranger, who consistently celebrates the partnership between his voice and the piano. "

Spencer Day performs at The Green Room 42 (570 Tenth Avenue at 42nd Street, on the 4th Floor of Yotel) on December 14 at 7:00 PM; January 4 at 9:30 PM; and Friday, March 22 at 7:00 PM. The cover changes is $20-25 with $50 premium tickets (which include preferred seating). There is no food and drink minimum. For tickets, please visit www.TheGreenRoom42.com.

THE GREEN ROOM 42 recently celebrated its one-year anniversary as the theater district's premiere destination for live music and events. The space lets audiences experience shows up close and personal. During the shows, guests can enjoy Mediterranean-inspired dishes alongside signature cocktails, craft beer and wine with no food/drink minimum. Tickets can be purchased at www.TheGreenRoom42.com. The Green Room 42 is located at 570 Tenth Avenue in New York City; @TheGreenRoom42.

A review of John Marshall: The Man Who Made the Supreme Court (Basic Books, 2018) by Richard Brookhiser

John Marshall presents a curious problem for Southern history. How can a man, born and bred in the same State, who breathed the same air and shared the same blood with Thomas Jefferson, have been such an ardent nationalist? The same question could be asked of Washington, and to a lesser extent, Henry Clay and Abraham Lincoln. The answer in Marshall’s case is perhaps best explained by his opposition to Jefferson’s Republican faction. Marshall feared both a French-inspired revolution on American soil and the fragmentation of the Union, and to Marshall “nationalism” provided the only tangible remedy for Jacobin terrorism and Jeffersonian democracy. The center had to hold in order to maintain the legacy of the American War for Independence.

          A Lost Thing Finding Itself Jazz at Lincoln Center      Cache   Translate Page      

Origin stories may not always represent a complete truth, but they do give people something to hold on to. What defines the origin of Jazz at Lincoln Center, which has just started its 31st season, is the need to prove itself. In 1986, the board of Lincoln Center issued a report that said, “Lincoln Center should focus on excellence in its core offerings and that no compelling case can be made for adding a new constituent in an area like jazz.” Three years earlier, Alina Bloomgarden, then director of visitor services, brought the idea of a permanent jazz program to the center’s president. “I submitted three proposals between 1983 and 1987,” Bloomgarden recounted. “My first two proposals were rejected; some thought jazz audiences would be rowdy(!).”

When the board finally gave its tepid approval, Bloomgarden invited Marsalis to help her plan a summer concert series. The incipient jazz program had to demonstrate its commercial viability as well as the merits of the music and, it seems, the community from which it comes. The first three concerts, in August 1987, celebrated women in jazz (Betty Carter, Sasha Daltonn, Marian McPartland and others), the pianist and composer Thelonious Monk, and the saxophonist Charlie Parker.

The founders of JALC believed that the stakes were high — not just for the music but also for the life of the country. By the late Eighties, many of jazz’s greatest innovators had died; jazz clubs were shutting down; most colleges and universities had yet to form jazz-studies programs; and some warned that the increasing popularity of electronic instruments, and the commercial aspirations that came with them, threatened the identity of the music. At the same time, the limitations of the civil rights movement were becoming more widely apparent; some schools, workplaces and neighborhoods may have been desegregated, but the country was hardly integrated. AIDS was ravaging American cities, giving many people a new excuse to demonstrate their disdain for others. The Cold War and its end gave a boost to militarization and globalization. And Reagan’s intensification of the War on Drugs precipitated the period of modern mass incarceration.

Not nearly of American society, but certainly of jazz, Wynton Marsalis was considered to be a savior. The stories about Marsalis reprised the ones told about Miles Davis in the Fifties and anticipated the ones told today about musicians like Kamasi Washington or Robert Glasper — that he would return artistic seriousness and market viability to a genre that had lost its way. But unlike those contemporary musicians, and like Miles, Marsalis radiated a brashness that all but dared critics to reject the savior mythology.

Marsalis’s own sense of what he was saving is recorded in “The New Orleans Function” (1989), a three-part suite styled after the city’s funeral marches, which is, in a way, a musical extension of Bechet’s origin story. The second part, a song called “Premature Autopsies (Sermon),” features an impassioned oration written by the critic Stanley Crouch and delivered by Reverend Jeremiah Wright. In addition to offering testimony to the profundity of jazz as art, Wright’s address, set to life-giving music, can be read as an assessment of American society and as a statement of purpose for Marsalis. Under the guidance of mentors like Crouch and Albert Murray (who was also involved in the founding of JALC), Marsalis had come to understand the possibilities for American culture held within the music. And so the sermon can also be read as a statement of purpose for what would become Jazz at Lincoln Center:

It is possible that we who listened heard something timeless from those who are the descendants of the many who were literally up for sale — those whose presence on the auction blocks and in the slave quarters formed the cross upon which the Constitution of this nation was crucified. Yet — even after that crucifixion, there were those who rose in the third century of American slavery with a vision of freedom.

There were those who lit the mighty wick that extended from the candle — and carried it. There were those who spoke through music of the meaning of light — those who were not content to accept the darkness in the heart that comes when you surrender to dragons who think themselves grand. There were those who said, “Listen closely, now” — those who said, “If you give me a fair chance, I will help you better understand the meaning of democracy.” Yes — that is precisely what they said. “If you give me a fair chance, I will help you better understand the meaning of democracy.” These are they who were truly the makers of a noble sound.

A chance, perhaps one fair enough, was given. After two summers of the concert series, Gordon Davis, a member of the Lincoln Center board at the time, advocated for a new committee to reconsider forming a permanent jazz program. In 1990, the board finally agreed to deepen its commitment by instituting Jazz at Lincoln Center as a funded department. Then, in 1996, ten years after its initial denial, the board voted to elevate Jazz at Lincoln Center to full constituency, joining the City Ballet, the Metropolitan Opera, and the other houses dedicated to European arts.

The leaders of JALC quickly undertook the construction of a facility designed specifically for the acoustics of swing- and blues-oriented jazz, one that could also accommodate the institution’s educational and archival pursuits. During the construction of Frederick P. Rose Hall at Columbus Circle, which cost $131 million, Lisa Schiff, the board’s chairperson, explained their fundraising strategy in just one word: “Wynton.” As part of his strategy, Marsalis performed with popular musicians outside of the jazz world like Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon and Bob Dylan. (As David Yaffe wrote in 2005, “Marsalis’s insistence on laying down the iron law of swing with rock and R&B icons added a rich tension to their performances.”)

Each accomplishment for JALC has brought a new set of challenges, and the building and operation of its own facility proved no different. JALC has often been criticized for its high ticket prices, but to its credit, it provides a set of offerings that extends far beyond the concert stage. These include pre-concert lectures, which are free but poorly advertised; live streaming of all concerts, which is also free; educational programming for people of all ages; and maintaining an archive of written compositions. These are JALC’s efforts to put Wright’s sermon — “I will help you better understand the meaning of democracy” — into institutional action. And yet, when Americans discuss how to address our deepest problems, how to steer this lost thing, we tend not to look to the arts, let alone to jazz, for guidance.

One can arrive at a more meaningful understanding of JALC and what it has offered the country by considering an institution that is often described as something of its antithesis: the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM), which was founded in Chicago in 1965 and borrowed much of its thinking from the black cultural nationalism of the period. Originality, or the sense of it, guided almost everything AACM members did. Even though the first generation of AACM members was greatly influenced by swing and bebop, some of its members sought to distance themselves from that lineage by calling their music “Great Black Music” rather than “jazz,” a term that’s inescapably unoriginal. In the book A Power Stronger Than Itself, the trombonist and AACM member George E. Lewis quotes the saxophonist Roscoe Mitchell describing the aesthetic vision for his album Sound (1966), AACM’s first recording: “Sound is a composition that deals, like I say, with sound, and the musicians are free to make any sound they think will do, any sound that they hear at a particular time. That could be like somebody who felt like stomping on the floor … well, he would stomp on the floor.”

Lewis also recounts how such a relationship to sound and freedom manifested at AACM performances: “At a Roscoe Mitchell Art Ensemble event in December 1966, Lester Bowie opened the event by stalking across the stage wielding a shotgun. Later, drummer Leonard Smith danced with an oversized Raggedy Ann doll, accompanied by Malachi Favors’s banjo. Another performance saw Favors wearing bells on his ankles and stripes painted on his face.” (The JALC Orchestra members wear matching suits and ties for their performances.)

The AACM’s notion of artistic originality accords with its ideal of cooperative self-determination: the group initially relied exclusively on membership dues for funding, presented and marketed its own concerts, and made decisions about almost everything by majority vote. In addition to being an incubator for original music, the AACM, like JALC, made education and community development essential parts of its mission. And perhaps in this way, in the name of its own radicalism, the AACM could be said to be even more steadfast than JALC. Its strong anti-corporatist beliefs have prevented the organization from securing the sort of endowment that JALC enjoys.

Even though the AACM has been described as a radical, black-nationalist organization, its main concern has been with showing the way, through its music and its institutional example, toward equality and greater freedom for everyone. As Muhal Richard Abrams, the AACM’s founding president, put it, the organization operated from the idea that they were “helping ourselves up to the point where we can participate in the universal aspect of things, which includes all people.” Indeed, although their aesthetic sensibilities have taken the institutions in different directions, both AACM and JALC embody and extend theories for cultural change that attempt to deal with the damage done by racialized exclusion, discrimination and poverty.

But by prioritizing originality, sometimes at the expense of discernible meaning, the AACM is an example of how the artistic innovations we call “radical” can play out in counterintuitive ways. Artistic and social movements that have been labeled as radical often exhibit a functional conservatism — an inward-looking posture that is inflexible in the face of challenge or change. Conversely, what Jazz at Lincoln Center does has radical potential by way of the very same attributes that critics call conservative or misguided. For instance, when the location for Rose Hall was determined, many people scoffed at its placement within a high-end shopping mall at Columbus Circle, and perceived its isolation from the main Lincoln Center campus four blocks to the north to be a slight. But there may be no more appropriate location: nestled within a house of consumerism, JALC showcases the music born from a freedom struggle, one that encourages both players and listeners to reach for higher ideals.

For the AACM, freedom is achieved by shaking off restrictions (“an awakening,” as Abrams put it); for JALC, freedom is achieved through mastery of tradition and form — within limitations. In a 2002 interview with the pianist Ethan Iverson, and after a brief and positive discussion of the AACM, Marsalis elaborated on his thinking regarding the label “jazz.”

Everything can’t be it, if only because you can’t teach it to other people.

That’s a very pragmatic way to look at it. If I take my kid out here and say, “Everything that you do is basketball,” I can’t teach him how to play. You apply that to any field. You’re going to have a problem teaching people, if you don’t have a meaning. It’s great for you if you can realize something that intensely broad. But you’re going to have trouble with your next generation. Because to learn everything is hard.

And if there’s no standard of excellence, the most competitive students will not want to play. … The thing about conservatism is the comfort of numbers. Everybody agrees.

The tension between the “radicalism” that gets associated with the AACM and the “conservatism” that gets associated with JALC is akin to the academic and art-world debates between postmodernism and modernism. The AACM’s version of postmodernism eschews any notion of universal standards of excellence or of truth and beauty, often because those standards have been associated with white supremacy; for Marsalis and JALC, those standards may have historically been associated with white supremacy, but mostly what they’ve done is given shape to the cultural inheritance all Americans carry, and provided an opportunity for transcendence, or progress — by way of honest confrontation and mastery of form.

In January 2018, Jazz at Lincoln Center hosted an event with the magazine JazzTimes called the Jazz Congress — something like an academic conference for the jazz community, with panels about urgent issues and practicalities like audience development and digital marketing. The first panel discussion was titled “Jazz and Race: A Conversation,” a moderated talk between Marsalis and Iverson. Marsalis, wearing a gray double-breasted suit and dark tie, began the discussion by speaking from prepared notes:

I want to start by saying something about “black.” “Black” is not anthropological. That’s the first thing I want to clarify. It’s social and it’s political. … Race in our country is a stand-in for a dominant culture to create a permanent underclass to be exploited for social reasons, for rituals, for sacrifice and for economics. … Jazz music refutes the construct of sectarianism, which is used to divide and conquer people. It is itself a refutation of that. This is what I’ve learned. I grew up in black nationalism, in black power, which is itself a construct. The most difficult thing to do is to go deeper than whatever everything around you told you was true and the reality you could see. Because there’s another reality inside of another reality. And jazz symbolically is a unifier — that’s what it is. It is the result of hybridization of cultures.

That Marsalis gave this sort of introduction to the conversation is notable for its difference, in tone and groundedness, from more common public discussions about race, which often jump straight into tallying representation and assessing power on a who’s-up-who’s-down basis. The facile equation of representation, in the sense of visibility, and power, while not unimportant, is symptomatic of our fixation on high drama and our desire for easy solutions. It ignores the power, beauty and potential that “have-nots” actually possess, and those hard-earned qualities that the “haves” may lack — the cultural resources to make sense of and counterstate the pain inflicted by those systemic abuses.

Most crucially, against a society that continually confuses the two, Marsalis is almost always explicit about the difference between race and culture, between what is taken to be intractable and what we can change. Marsalis’s bold position — that the differences we give life to aren’t essential or determinative differences at all — relies on a lesson he learned from Albert Murray. “Identity is best defined in terms of culture,” Murray wrote in his 1970 book The Omni-Americans. “American culture, even in its most rigidly segregated precincts, is patently and irrevocably composite. … Indeed, for all their traditional antagonisms and obvious differences, the so-called black and so-called white people of the United States resemble nobody else in the world so much as they resemble each other.”

By contrast, when, during the second meeting of the AACM, the (“white”) pianist Bob Dogan asked, “You mean that if someone is a certain race then they can’t come into the group,” Abrams replied:

I mean that we are going to have to decide whether we will have an interracial group or not. Being frank about it, when we started we didn’t intend to have an interracial group. Not as opposed to another race, but we made it on the premise that each has his own, up to a certain height. Then, the collaboration and contact with the other races or body takes place. …This is not opposed to white musicians. We know that we clearly have economic, social and other obligations to ourselves because of our positions as black musicians. We’ve been lacking a lot of things, and we have to bring up ourselves.

After further debate, no affirmative group decision was made, but Abrams’s position became the de facto position of the AACM. Such a stance, even if it doesn’t represent the highest ideals, is understandable in the context of American life in 1965. And yet the hybrid nature of American culture stubbornly presented itself; over time, the AACM’s orbit expanded to include people outside of its initial vision of itself — whether in the form of artistic collaborations (as with John Cage and with concert stops in France and Germany), performing space provided by the University of Chicago, or financial support from the National Endowment for the Arts, which was hard-won and fraught with discriminatory practices.

          Wynton Marsalis isn’t afraid of the past, or holiday music      Cache   Translate Page      

At 57, Wynton Marsalis has a lot of jazz in his bones.

Plenty of virtuosos and historians have spent time and energy learning a form, but the trumpeter grew up in one, with a family that was musical, even compared to musical families. Which may explain why it feels like Marsalis is a lot older than 57.

But he has turned his birthright — a youth spent absorbing music in New Orleans — into a mode of creative expression and preservation. As the head of Jazz of Lincoln Center, he has presented all manner of live music programming that speaks to the form’s vast and storied history and cultural value. He also is a composer, recording artist and interpreter.

Which is all to say, Marsalis at this stage in his life could slide lazily into the role of curator, but rather, he prefers to bring his music to listeners. So he plays three shows this week, one in Houston and two not too far outside, all with a holiday theme. His Houston show is one with specific ties. Marsalis has long admired the jazz that comes out of Houston. He references jazz educator Bob Morgan and drummer Eric Harland as just two examples. But he also is doing the show here thanks to Vincent Gardner, a trombonist and founding artist director of Jazz Houston.

Marsalis talked to us about jazz and musical traditions, including holiday music.

Q: I feel like holiday music has its own tradition. Which is an open door to a broader music question. Preservation of the history has always been an important thing for you. Even at the cost of other music forms that criticized you for not acknowledging progress. Take Jelly Roll Morton. He made some recordings. But that’s not how he got started. So your “Mr. Jelly Lord” album was big for me. It was a recent take on something others had been interpreting for years.

A: Yes, I never had this hatred of the past. I knew, for me, we were playing in the present. I think for some people they see the past as a shackle. I never thought that. But I think that is also a conservative way of thinking: That the past is a shackle. I feel like somebody thinks an idea and everybody agrees and we don’t question it. Jelly Roll played music. And if the essence today is the same, why not continue to try to play it? Kids get older and parents die, and both forget grandparents. These cycles of life and death aren’t changing. So I try to embrace all music. I try to keep learning.

Q: Which sounds a lot like the old songsters, who weren’t blues players. Mance Lipscomb is among the most beloved here. But he’d play very different music on a Saturday night and a Sunday morning. And he’d also play very different songs for white and black audiences. He tried to read a crowd, but he wasn’t a “blues” player. He played songs.

A: Right. We need to be able to identify things, but we shouldn’t get stuck there. The problem is the grandfather is not the same as the father who’s not the same as the son. But that doesn’t mean you don’t believe in the experience of the grandfather. We had an interesting show in the hall the other night, Mary Chapin Carpenter playing with her musicians. And I stopped in the room backstage, and everybody was talking about jazz and folk music. And it all comes from the same thing: folk music and jazz. That’s why we are trying to get students to learn folk music and deal with the roots of American music. Blues is in the soil of all that.

Q: You’re doing these Christmas shows, which pull from a long tradition that has a unifying effect through one lens. Do you find the songs to have some relatable quality?

A: Mythology is common. There’s a common mythology. And the holidays are a good time to remind ourselves of that. Christmas reminds us of that. It’s the one time of year where traditional songs and things that used to be are noticed. So it’s like a renewal. Some new songs, but old songs. Classics. And they can live together. … That’s why everybody does it. Gene Autry, Mel Torme, Donny Hathaway.

Q: It’s like the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. I was looking up the members. There are some from predictable hubs like New York, New Orleans and Chicago, but also plenty from the Midwest, England …

A: Yeah, somebody’s from New York, but not everybody is from New York. People tend to come here. New Orleans, people tend to be from New Orleans. But people come from all over interested in jazz. All around the U.S., the Caribbean. The music has a diverse population.

Q: Do you have a favored holiday album or song? I’m intrigued by the reach of Vince Guaraldi because of “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”

A: Hey, I love Vince in general. And if you’re around my age, “Charlie Brown” was the only time you heard jazz on TV. And now, years later, there’s less. (Laughs.) But we all remember that, because he was doing something you didn’t hear anywhere else on television.

          An Evening of Cultural and Diplomatic Dialogue at the US Institute of Peace      Cache   Translate Page      

The United States Institute of Peace — the soaring glass and limestone building near the National Mall designed to reflect America’s commitment to ending global conflict — is perhaps not the first venue that comes to mind for a swinging session by two legendary jazzmen.

But on November 1, Russian and American jazz icons Igor Butman and Wynton Marsalis not only received the National Dialogue Award from the Sustained Dialogue Institute — they also gifted attendees at the ceremony with an electrifying private concert. Twenty Carmel Institute of Russian Culture & History students were among the guests.

Founded in 2002, the Sustained Dialogue Institute — which promotes the method of peacemaking developed by its first leader, Dr. Harold Saunders — has been deeply involved in peacebuilding across the world. Saunders was a key drafter of the Camp David Peace Accords, and also served as Assistant Secretary of State under President Jimmy Carter.

First presented in 2014, the National Dialogue Award mission statement asserts that the honor “aims to promote the values of dialogue, especially sustained dialogue, in the transformation of national and global conflict. It seeks to reach across national and transnational boundaries to bring people of every age together for a better world.” Previous awardees include US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg; US Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and her husband astronaut Mark Kelly; US Senator George Mitchell and US Congressman John Lewis; and Carmel Institute founder Susan E. Carmel.

The Sustained Dialogue Institute proclaimed that Butman and Marsalis each received the award "in recognition of the monumental contributions they have made bridging divides through the arts, including through the use of music and student exchanges to bring young people and others together from across the world." “We love and respect each other and have many of the same music idols,” Butman said in his acceptance remarks. “By the way, some of Wynton’s idols are Russian — like Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, and Rimsky-Korsakov. I also have a lot of US idols — including Marsalis himself.”

Marsalis returned the compliment, telling the audience, “This award is even more special to me because of the presence of my brother in swing — who has traveled many kilometers to join us here tonight — Igor Butman.”

Both artists emphasized that music transcends cultural differences and geographical boundaries.

“Art and especially music itself has no borders,” observed Butman, “and our mission as musicians is to build new humanitarian bridges between nations and countries. Jazz diplomacy and musical education is our tool to help people all over the world to overcome boundaries and erase barriers.”

Jazz, Marsalis believes, is a musical genre uniquely suited to the task: “Jazz is a unique and very powerful language that helps to bring peace and understanding to this world. Jazz is the sound of freedom, born of the quest for harmonious dialogue through the resolution of conflicting perspectives — under the pressure of time,” he said.

Anatoly Antonov, the Ambassador of the Russian Federation to the US, praised not only the musical talents of Butman and Marsalis but also their committed cultural outreach efforts. “Today we are celebrating two luminaries of jazz art,” Ambassador Antonov noted. “They have fans all over the world, and their musical creativity, bypassing language barriers, helps people to better understand each other.”

Offstage, Butman and Marsalis have each dedicated themselves to an ambitious schedule of education and cultural dialogue initiatives.

In 2017, Butman successfully launched Jazz Across Borders, the first jazz conference in the history of Russia, which has since become an international event. In 2018, he became, with Herbie Hancock, the co-artistic director of St. Petersburg’s International Jazz Day.

As the Managing and Artistic Director of Jazz at Lincoln Center, Marsalis, the first jazz artist to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize, has been appointed both as a UN Messenger of Peace and as a Cultural Ambassador for Jazz by the US State Department.

Ambassador Antonov also had special words of thanks for Susan E. Carmel, the Gala Chair and Founder of the Carmel Institute of Russian Culture & History. "We highly appreciate everything you do to build trust between our peoples,” he said. “Cultural dialogue allows Russians and Americans not to lose the experience of communicating with each other, and creates a groundwork for the restoration of bilateral relations at the political level.”

“Wynton and Igor both know and live this model of substance and the model of sustained dialogue,” said Susan E. Carmel. “They know that the global challenges we face today and in the future can be positively influenced and changed through person-to-person dialogue, cultural and musical dialogue, and educational exchange and dialogue.”

Echoing the words of her late brother-in-law and music educator, Dr. Charles Hoffer, Ms. Carmel asserted that "living is more than existing. Do people need music? Not in the sense that they need to eat and sleep. But they do need it in terms of a rich human life. Humans need music, beauty, gentleness, sensitivity to others, and all the civilizing elements that create a life of substance."

Shortly after delivering their own remarks, with National Dialogue Award medals hanging from their necks by bright blue and gold ribbons, Butman and Marsalis launched into a thrilling set of jazz standards. A delighted audience clapped, cheered, and even shouted their appreciation, ultimately rewarding the jazz greats and their sidemen with a standing ovation.

Ambassadors and high-ranking diplomats representing more than twenty countries were in attendance, a fact that was interpreted as a hopeful sign by Sustained Dialogue Institute president Mark Farr. "This is positive proof that despite worldly challenges, these collaborations unite us. Cultural diplomacy can bring peace to the world," he declared.

          Jake Shimabukuro at RootsTech Salt Lake City!      Cache   Translate Page      


RootsTech 2019 has announced another fabulous Keynote Speaker. Quoting, in part, from the announcement, "Jake Shimabukuro, will be the featured keynote speaker at RootsTech 2019 on Saturday, March 2 at 11 AM MST. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Jake’s inspiring story and listen to this one-of-a-kind ukulele master musician play the instrument like you’ve never heard it before."

Unless you are from Hawaii, you may not be familiar with Jake, but the announcement indicates that his keynote will be very special. Again quoting:
Almost everyone in Hawaii has strummed a ukulele at one time or another. But at the age of 14, Jake Shimabukuro realized that he was doing something a little different with the 4-stringed instrument—OK, a lot different. Shimabukuro’s wholly unique approach to the ukulele started early. As a youngster growing up in Honolulu, Hawaii, Shimabukuro started playing the instrument after learning the basics from his mother, and then developing his craft. 
Shimabukuro’s records have topped the Billboard World Music Charts on numerous occasions, and as a live performer, he has become one of the hottest tickets around. He’s played with renowned orchestras and at prestigious venues such as the Hollywood Bowl, the Lincoln Center, and the Sydney Opera House. 
Shimabukuro is also a proud father of two boys. While balancing his career with family, he also remains firmly rooted in his commitment to community, frequently performing at schools in Hawaii and overseas, urging youngsters to find their passion and live drug-free.

          Burning bright: Possible only season as a starter has been off-the-charts for Kyler Murray      Cache   Translate Page      

By Ryan Aber, Staff Writer, raber@oklahoman.com

NORMAN — Lincoln Riley doesn't want to entertain the idea much that Kyler Murray isn't likely to be Oklahoma's quarterback next season.

But more and more, Murray is acknowledging what has long been expected — sometime in the next month-plus — Murray's college football career figures to come to an end.

It will be well worth it for the Sooners and Murray, who has turned in one of the best seasons ever for a one-off college quarterback, if this is indeed his only season as a full-time starter.

“I really haven't had a lot of time to reflect,” Murray said this week after being named one of three finalists for the Heisman Trophy.

          ¿Año nuevo, categoría nueva?      Cache   Translate Page      

La temporada 2018 de Top Race terminó hace un par de días pero la categoría ya piensa en el 2019, ya que Alejandro Urtubey inició las conversaciones la semana pasada con Facundo Ardusso para llegar a la divisional y el de Las Parejas le señaló que su intención de que el arribo sea junto al equipo Renault.

Ardusso tuvo su primera charla con el Gerente Comercial de Renault, Alejandro Reggii, luego de consagrase como bicampeón de Súper TC2000 en la última cita de Alta Gracia. Aunque no hubo avances. Urtubey esperará a alguna decisión del directivo de la marca francesa para tener mayor precisión sobre las posibilidades de sumar una nueva marca a la categoría espectáculo.

Más allá de la idea que Renault se incorpore, Urtubey desea el retorno de Ardusso al Top Race. La semana pasada estuvieron reunidos en Buenos Aires, y Miguel Angel Etchegaray también fue protagonista de ese encuentro. El Lincoln Sport Group sería el equipo indicado para el probable desembarco del piloto y de la marca, si las negociaciones llegan a buen puerto.

El bicampeón del Súper TC2000 fue parte del LSG en el Turismo Carretera, en el 2014, y con este equipo logró su bautismo triufnal en el TC, con Dodge, en Termas de Río Hondo. Esa temporada logró siete podios y terminó 3° en el campeonato. Y en el Top Race, su última participación fue en el 2015, junto al Sportteam.

          Mundy House Christmas      Cache   Translate Page      



The Christmas Market took place this past weekend,
and Big K and I decided to check it out.
The East Lincoln Historical Society and Mundy House hosted the event,
and local artists were invited to showcase their handiwork.


We found Marjorie Fairbanks displaying her wonderful artwork.
She had a variety of outdoor scenes available.
She is based in Denver (NC)
and can be reached at 704-257-6429.


Brian Stack is new to the woven arts.
He is a weaver who finds the pasttime a great way to relax.
His wife is a knitter who has encouraged him to explore his talent.
We found out from chatting with them,
that they used to live very near our old house in Cooper City, FL.
Small world, huh?
To get more information about Brian's offerings,
email him at Stackman54@aol.com.


These mermaids created by Laura Johansen were truly works of art.
I can't imagine how much time and energy goes into making 
these whimsical treasures.
Laura designs an assortment of dolls using various materials.
She can be reached at 704-483-6625.


These glass Christmas trees were captivating!
The artist, Mary Miller, explained the multi-step process
and it can be described only as a labor of love.
Mary is the owner of FatCat Kiln Works
and you can contact her at 704-489-9494.


What local, hometown event would be complete 
without an array of baked goodies?
Although very tempting, 
we decided to walk right past all the calories on the table.
You know if it's homemade, it's gotta be good!



We featured Mundy House when we initially moved to the area.
It was one of our first local field trips.


Inside, the house was well-adorned with decorations
fashioned by the members of the East Lincoln Historical Society.
This group gets together before the holidays
and creates the most unique and charming vintage embellishments.
The best part is that they are all for sale!
The proceeds support this most valuable asset to the community.


These paper chains were so festive!
Most of the trimmings were incredibly simple,
but unrivaled in originality.
 

From ornaments to wreaths, 
there were a good deal of garnishes to be had.
Many of the decorations were made using natural materials
donated by members of the Master Gardeners group.


With a sampling of everyday materials,
this crafty group fabricated so many authentic offerings.
These paper trees were gorgeous!
And would you look at the clever use of these dried okra pods!
They were turned into snowmen and Santas!
I wish I had gotten a better picture of them.
In any case, 
I know what I'll be doing with my overgrown okra next season!



The two sleeping rooms upstairs were also decked out for the holidays.


Delightful bouquets of money plant and hydrangea
could be picked up at a bargain price.
There really was something for everyone to enjoy.


Big K and I had a great time not only revisiting Mundy House,
but seeing it bedecked in all its holiday glory was a real treat.

Next year, I am hoping there will be room 
for me and my daisy totes.
That way, 
I can have first dibs on all the handmade goodies!

          Mayfield believes OU's Riley ready for coaching jump to NFL      Cache   Translate Page      

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Baker Mayfield isn't campaigning for Lincoln Riley.

The rookie quarterback isn't dismissing the possibility his former coach joins him in Cleveland either.

Mayfield said Wednesday that he believes Riley is prepared to move from Oklahoma into the NFL, but he would also understand if the 35-year-old wants to remain at one of college football's most successful programs.

"Lincoln's been ready, it's just who he is and how he coaches and the respect level he's had from all of his players, how detailed he is," Mayfield said.

          Keith Simpson's Christmas 2018 Reading List For His Fellow MPs (And You!)      Cache   Translate Page      

This guide to interesting books published this autumn has been compiled at a time of great crisis over the future of the Brexit agreement, the ability of the Prime Minister to continue and a Parliament and nation divided. Thirty years ago the late Julian Critchley, MP for Aldershot, said the safest thing for MPs in moments of great excitement was a bag of boiled sweets. My suggestion is to read a good book, preferably with a drink, and to switch off one’s mobile phone.

Once again I have selected a number of books based on politics, history and conflict with a few “stocking fillers”.

Keith Simpson

Not many MPs know that our colleague Alex Burghart, MP for Brentwood and Ongar, has a doctoral thesis on Anglo-Saxon history – how Harold Macmillan would have approved. Through Alex I learnt that the British Library had established a marvellous exhibition with accompanying book Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms Art, Word, War edited by Claire Breay and Joanna Story. A long way from the old fashioned definition of the Dark Ages.

Diarmaid MacCulloch is a distinguished historian of the Tudor period and the author of a biography of Thomas Cranmer. He has now turned his talents to Thomas Cromwell A Life (Allen Lane) which compliments and challenges the literary fiction of Hilary Mantel. Based on a deep knowledge of the archival sources but beautifully written.

Another Tudor historian is Tracy Borman who has written extensively about the men and women of the period. In Henry VIII and the Men Who Made Him (Hodder & Stoughton) she looks at the Royal servants, many of whom lost his confidence and went to the scaffold.

A book for the SNP, but alas its scholarship will challenge the myths they propagate, is T M Devine The Scottish Clearances A History of the Dispossessed (Allen Lane). This book is a powerful social and agrarian history of Scotland from the seventeenth century and deals with the Lowlands and Borders as well as the Highlands.

Anne Lister was an active lesbian in the early nineteenth century and kept a detailed coded diary. A fascinating and remarkable woman who dressed as a man and has found her biographer in Angela Steidele Gentleman Jack A biography of Anne Lister, Regency Landowner, Seducer and Secret Diarist (Serpent’s Tail). A book which would have shocked Queen Victoria.

Adrian Tinniswood is the author of The Long Weekend Life in the English Country House Between the Wars and has now turned his pen to Behind the Throne A Domestic History of the Royal Household (Jonathan Cape). A book crammed full of information and wonderful anecdotes since the reign of Elizabeth I.

The outstanding political biography this year is Andrew Roberts Churchill: Walking with Destiny (Allen Lane). Don’t be put off by yet another book on Churchill and the nine hundred pages. Andrew Roberts has written many political biographies and his command of the sources is breath taking, including the use of George VI’s diary. This biography now supersedes that written by Roy Jenkins twenty years ago.

Allen Packwood is the Director of the Churchill Archives, and he has used its magnificent resources to consider how Churchill made his strategic decisions in How Churchill Waged War: The Most Challenging Decisions of the Second World War (Frontline Books).

Like drinking flat champagne, but for the political anoraks a must is Philip Cowley and Dennis Kavanagh The British General Election of 2017 (Springer International). A good bluffer’s guide on lessons to be learnt in today’s period of instability.

Kenneth Rose was one of the most astute observers of the postwar establishment. With private means he plied his trade as an upmarket journalist and was the author for nearly forty years of the Sunday Telegraph gossip column “Albany at Large”. He had a wide network of friends, writers, politicians, Royalty, courtiers, headmasters and louche characters with whom he wined and dined. The historian D R Thorpe has edited his substantial diaries and the first volume is Who’s In Who’s Out: The Journals of Kenneth Rose Volume One 1944-1979 (Weidenfeld & Nicolson).

In No Tradesmen and No Women: The Origins of the British Civil Service (Biteback) Michael Coolican, a former civil servant, examines the origins of the civil service and how it has adapted or not to outside pressure.

Sadly, a few weeks ago we lost Peter Carrington, a long serving public servant and member of the Conservative Party, but not enthusiastically so. He died in ripe old age at the same time that Boris Johnson resigned as foreign secretary – something Carrington had done nearly forty years ago but with more style. Christopher Lee knew Carrington and spent hours talking with him and was able to produce off the literary backburner a biography Carrington: An Honourable Man (Viking).

John Nott, former defence secretary who resigned after the Falklands War, is a lively and opinionated former politician. A former soldier and businessman, and later an MP, he has written Memorable Encounters (Pen & Sword) about twenty individuals he has known from Cabinet ministers, to heads of the armed forces, scientists, a Poet Laureate, a farmer and not least his wife.

John Nicholson became the Victorian “Hero of Delhi” after he died of wounds during the capture of the city in 1857. A charismatic and opinionated Ulsterman of strong Christian beliefs he now appears as an outdated and anachronism. Nevertheless, Stuart Flinders has written a thought provoking biography Cult of Dark Hero: Nicholson of Delhi (I B Tauris).

David Gilmour wrote a substantial book on the British Indian Civil Service in the Victorian and Edwardian era – The Ruling Caste. Now he has written a superb study about the different British people who went to, lived and worked in India based upon a deep knowledge of archives and family papers. The British in India Three Centuries of Ambition and Experience (Allen Lane) is thought provoking and a good read.

The British Indian Army has come back into fashion and for more than accounts written by the British officer class. George Morton-Jack’s The Indian Empire at War: From Jihad to Victory, the Untold Story of the Indian Army in the First World War (Little Brown) attempts to see the war through the eyes of Indian soldiers. Peter Stanley has done the same with a truly superb account of the experience of Indian soldiers at Gallipoli in Die in Battle: Do Not Despair The Indians at Gallipoli 1915 (Helion and Company).

To understand the regular British officer in the First World War it is necessary to look at the late Victorian and Edwardian Army. An academic work but full of information is Ian F W Beckett A British Profession of Arms: The Politics of Command in the late Victorian Army (University of Oklahoma Press).

Michael Palin has been fascinated by the failure of the Royal Navy’s Arctic expedition in 1845 and the disappearance of two ships the Terror and the Erebus. A fascinating account which he explores through the story of HMS Erebus in Erebus The Story of a Ship (Random House).

We have just been commemorating the centenary of the Armistice and Guy Cuthbertson has written a sobering and informative book Peace at Last: A Portrait of Armistice Day 1 November 1918 (Yale University Press).

Helen Parr’s Our Boy:s The Story of a Paratrooper (Allen Lane) combines a moving account of the death of her nineteen year old Uncle Dave, in the Falklands, with the culture and ethos of young working class men serving in the Parachute Regiment. A classic book on an important subject.

There must be as many biographies of Napoleon as there are of Churchill. Adam Zamoyski’s Napoleon: The Man Behind the Myth (William Collins) strips away many of the accepted stories about Napoleon and draws a portrait warts and all.

Randall Nicol has written a most impressive two volume history of the Scots Guards on the Western Front in the First World War. One officer’s diary and letters he used was Miles Barnes, a former regular officer who volunteered again in 1914 and was tragically killed in 1917. A compassionate and dedicated officer who, perhaps, lacked the necessary hard nosed ambition to command, his life is revealed in Miles Barnes’ Diary A Suffolk Countryman at War 1915-1917 (Helion and Company).

A Centenary of Remembrance (Imperial War Museum) is written by Laura Clouting of the IWM, and explores the deeply personal way in which people mourned their loved ones and how individuals, localities and national governments memorialised them.

Oxford University Press has established a series of books on Great Battles, which move beyond a description of the fighting to consider how they have been interpreted and re-interpreted over the years. Mark Connelly and Stefan Goebel look at how the British, French, Germans and Belgians have done this in Great Battles: Ypres (OUP) from the First World War.

Nazi justice was extensive and deadly and Helmut Ortner considers this in Hitler’s Executioner: Roland Freisler, President of the Nazi People’s Court (Frontline Books).

Doris Kearns Goodwin is a distinguished American historian who has written extensively about Lincoln and the Roosevelts. Her Leadership Lessons from the Presidents for Turbulent Times (Viking) draws on her research and has some useful conclusions that could be absorbed by the score of would-be Conservative leadership candidates.

One of the most impressive books published this year is Max Hastings Vietnam: An Epic Tragedy 1945-1975 (William Collins) drawing upon the author’s experiences there as a young journalist and his extensive research.

Cedric Delves was a distinguished British army officer who served in the Special Forces in the Falklands. In Across An Angry Sea: The SAS in the Falklands War (C Hurst & Co) he writes with passion about the role and history of Special Forces on the ground.

Patrick Porter’s Blunder Britain’s War in Iraq (OUP) concludes that bad ideas, sincerely and widely held, bear primary responsibility for what went wrong. This is now fifteen year old history and rarely receives a mention but is important for decision makers today.

The fascinating wartime correspondence between Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt is set in historical context by two distinguished editors – they range from intimate personal greetings to major exchanges on strategy and war – David Reynolds and Vladimir Pechatnov (eds) The Kremlin Letters: Stalin’s Wartime Correspondence with Churchill and Roosevelt (Yale University Press).

Published against the background of events in Salisbury Mark Urban The Skripol Files: The Life and Near Death of a Russian Spy (Macmillan) tells the story of the Russian Spy Sergei Skripol and the role of the Russian intelligence agencies and their active killer instincts.

A book originally published in 1968 and updated in 2016 is Edward Luttwak Coup d’Etat: A Practical Handbook (Harvard University Press). This should be required reading for Jacob Rees-Mogg and Steve Baker following their bungled attempt to overthrow the Prime Minister. Politicians should always remember LBJ’s advice – first rule is learn how to count.

A recommendation by our former colleague Sir Simon Burns is Michelle Obamas Becoming (Viking) which is far better than the usual political memoir of a former President’s wife.

Finally, two stocking fillers are Charles Oliver Dinner at Buckingham Palace: Secrets and Recipes form the reign of Queen Victoria to Queen Elizabeth II (John Blake) and the wonderfully eccentric book by the Reverend Fergus Butler-Gallie A Field Guide to the English Clergy A Compendium of Diverse Eccentrics, Pirates, Prelates and Adventurers, All Anglian, Some Even Practising (One World Publications).

A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my Readers.

PS From Iain D: A shameful omission from this list but one which you will need a Christmas pillow case for rather than a stocking, is this excellent tome published in September by Jacqui Smith and myself. For the discerning female political geek among you. Or one that you know…

          Joan Baez      Cache   Translate Page      

 


On a warm weekend in Newport, Rhode Island, Joan Baez is sitting in the garden restaurant of the Hotel Viking, doing her best not to surrender to sentimentality or nostalgia. The next day she will be appearing on stage at the Newport Folk Festival 50, celebrating the festival’s 50th anniversary, and, more poignantly, her first appearance there – by extension the birth of her career as a professional singer. An emotional moment, then? Baez gives it a moment’s thought. 'Not really…’
Baez was a complete unknown playing in the coffee houses of Boston when she was invited by the folk singer Bob Gibson to join him on stage at Newport. 'I walked on stage and it looked like the largest gathering of people on earth,’ she now says with a laugh. 'I felt as if I’d been invited to my own execution.’ Within a year, she would be the most popular folk singer in America.
The Festival 50 performance will bring together a number of luminaries of the 1960s folk movement of which Baez would become the undisputed queen – her old friends Judy Collins, Arlo Guthrie and the great patriarch of American folk music, Pete Seeger. (It was Seeger, now 90, whose appearance in 1954 at a fund-raising concert for the Democratic Party at Palo Alto High School in California first inspired the belief in the 13-year-old Baez that she, too, could make a life from singing.)
The Hotel Viking is one of the grandest in a town of grand establishments. It was where Baez stayed when she first appeared at Newport, and again in 1963, when she returned with Bob Dylan – the queen and her crown prince, prowling around the hotel pool cracking a 20ft black leather bullwhip which a friend of Baez’s had given Dylan as a joke. 'Ah, yes, the bullwhip. We were pretty good with that.’
Baez gives a slight smile. Dylan, whom she famously loved, Woodstock, where she performed, the 1960s, which she helped to define – all of this is in the past, where Joan Baez does her best not to dwell. 'I think I’m trying to strangle people into coming up to the present so much of the time, because people tend to live aeons ago,’ she says.
A figure of dignified, simple elegance, she is dressed in black trousers, a brown silk sweater and an ornate turquoise necklace. Her steel-grey hair is neatly cropped. She has huge brown liquid eyes that seem to hint at some perpetual, unseen amusement. For many years Joan Baez was in psychotherapy, and has recently become an avid meditator – 20 minutes a day every day – and her rosary of sandalwood beads is around one wrist (on the other is a silver bracelet stamped with Nelson Mandela’s prison number, a memento of her appearance at his 90th birthday celebrations last year). The practice lends her a tangible calm and serenity, as if she is hovering a few inches above the irritations and preoccupations of daily life.
'Pretty damn serene,’ she agrees.
At the age of 68 Joan Baez is enjoying something of a second summer in her career. There was a time in the early 1990s, she says, when she believed it was all but over. While she retained a loyal following in Europe, in America her record sales had plummeted to the point where she could not even find a record label. 'Everybody said, “Oh she’s great, a legend,” but they did not want to sign me. If we’d sent out demos of what I was doing and put “Young woman songwriter” on it, we’d have had a better chance than putting “Joan Baez” on it.’
With the advice of her present manager, Mark Spector, she began to rebuild her career, connecting with a younger generation of songwriters such as Natalie Merchant, Ryan Adams and Mary Chapin Carpenter. An album last year, Day After Tomorrow, produced by Steve Earle and featuring songs by Earle, Tom Waits and Thea Gilmore, became her best-selling record since the 1970s and won her a Grammy nomination.
 
Baez recently finished filming a documentary about her life, in the 'American Masters’ series for the American Public Broadcasting Service – which amounts to being enshrined as a great national institution. The film includes a clip of a press conference conducted in the mid-1960s, in which she is introduced as 'the folk-music star, Joan Baez’. With the mixture of haunting virginal beauty and deadly earnestness that defined her, she retorts that she doesn’t think of herself as a star: 'If people have to put labels on me, I’d prefer the first label to be human being, the second label to be pacifist, and the third to be folk singer.’
Baez’s pacifist convictions were instilled in her from an early age. Her parents, Albert and 'Big Joan’, as she was known, were Quakers – Albert a physicist who turned down the opportunity to work on lucrative defence programmes to pursue a career as a lecturer. Joan was the middle of three sisters. They were an intensely close and happy family in which independence of thought and non-conformity were encouraged.
When Joan was 10 Albert was sent by Unesco to work in Baghdad. It was her first awareness of real poverty, she remembers, and the first step in what she describes as her journey towards a sense of social justice. Reading Anne Frank’s diary at the same age was the second. 'I identified with it so strongly, her feeling that people are basically good at heart.’ The third was as a 16-year-old, hearing the young Martin Luther King speak about civil rights at a seminar run by the American Friends Service Committee in Palo Alto, where the Baezes were then living. 'I’d heard these discussions in my family for years, but he was actually doing what I had heard and read about,’ she says. (Only a few years later she would find herself marching beside King in Grenada, Mississippi, to integrate local schools, and performing on the platform at the March on Washington in August 1963, when King made his legendary 'I have a dream’ speech.)
Baez went to Boston University in 1958, although she would pursue her studies for only a few weeks. It was there that she began to perform in the burgeoning coffee-house and folk-club scene around Harvard Square. One contemporary quoted in David Hajdu’s biography of Baez, Positively 4th Street, noted that 'she gave off a kind of vulnerability, which made her singing appear like kind of a brave act. Like a beautiful bird that is terrified and doesn’t quite know why.’ The terror was real, Baez says. Performing filled her with dread, and she was sometimes so racked with nerves that she would have to leave the stage in mid-song, to splash herself with cold water and compose herself.
Baez’s emergence coincided with, and to a large extent propelled, the folk-music boom of the early 1960s. Her first two albums were of traditional songs, melancholic ballads about love and murder, which, Baez recalls, she 'had the sadness in me to sing’. Both went gold – unheard of for folk music. Time magazine put her on its cover; from every corner she was beatified as 'the Madonna of folk’.
Baez was not interested in entertaining people so much as in moving them, making them feel. And in this she was true to the spirit of the times. It was Bob Dylan who would turn her into a protest singer. Dylan was a virtual unknown when he and Baez first met at a Greenwich Village club, Gerde’s Folk City, in 1961. Dylan initially antagonised her by trying to pick up her younger sister, Mimi. It was Mimi’s boyfriend, the songwriter and author Richard Fariña, who supposedly told Dylan that what he needed to do was 'hook up with Joan Baez… She’s your ticket, man.’
For her part, Baez was smitten by Dylan’s anthems of protest and social change. 'It was as if he was giving voice to the ideas I wanted to express, but didn’t know how,’ she would later recall. She began to include his songs in her own repertoire, and invited him to tour with her. They became lovers, and his fame blossomed under her patronage. But once people began anointing him the 'king of protest’ he quickly declared his abdication, abandoning what he called the 'finger-pointing songs’ and refusing to lend his name to any cause. The growing distance between her political convictions and his apparent lack of them would eventually become the fault-line dividing them.
In her 1989 autobiography, And a Voice to Sing With, Baez remembers once asking Dylan what was the difference between them; simple, he replied, she thought she could change things, and he knew that no one could.
So who, I ask her, does she think was right?
'I would say we both were. Certainly for him, he’s right. But he’s not in the business of changing things. He never was. And that’s where my mistake was with him. I kept pushing him, wanting him to want to do that. Exhausting for him, and futile for me. Ridiculous. Until I finally put it together in my head that he had given us this artillery in his songs, and he didn’t really need to do anything aside from that. I mean, he may resent it, but he changed the world with his music.’
Resent it?
'Well, just because he doesn’t want to think about that sort of thing. He doesn’t want the responsibility. On the other hand, I have enough intelligence to know I don’t understand him, and that’s why it’s so futile to keep talking about him.’
Her affair with Dylan finally ended in 1966 after an unhappy British tour, when he spent much of the time ignoring her. The problem was, she says, that even when it was clear that things were over between them, she 'didn’t have the brains to leave’.
While they remained somehow forever connected – she joined him on his 'Rolling Thunder’ tour 10 years later – you sense they have long since lost touch. Baez doesn’t say.
Dylan is the ghost at the banquet in any interview with Baez, the one subject interviewers can be guaranteed to raise, the subject she most loathes talking about. When I ask why she thinks people are still fascinated by the relationship, she fixes me with a look. 'Well, that must be some sort of deficit in their lives. It’s like Woodstock. People measure their lives by it – were they there; were they born yet; were they stuck on the freeway; did their parents say they couldn’t go. They’re obsessed by it. And it was a wonderful three days; the music was great. I’m glad I was there. But it wasn’t the f***ing revolution. So I don’t really know the answer. I mean, [Dylan] and I were not just two people – we were thousands of people, everybody else’s images of whatever we were, none of them true. But why it was so huge I don’t really know.’
And nor do you care?
She laughs. 'No.’

Dylan may have abandoned protest, but Baez did not. 'Someone had to change the world,’ she notes wryly in her autobiography. 'And obviously I was the one for the job.’
In 1964 she publicly refused to pay the proportion of her income tax that went to the defence budget, in protest against America’s deepening involvement in Vietnam. And the following year, with a friend and mentor, Ira Sandperl, she established the Institute for the Study of Nonviolence in her hometown of Carmel, California, to teach peace studies.
The writer Joan Didion was among the visitors, writing a celebrated essay, 'Where the Kissing Never Stops’, in which she waspishly described Baez as being 'a personality before she was entirely a person’, taking note of the various roles that the media had assigned to her: 'the Madonna of the disaffected… the pawn of the protest movement… the girl ever wounded, ever young.’
Baez says she remembers being hurt by that – not the part about her being a personality before she was a person, 'that was perfectly true. I didn’t like that she didn’t take my politics as deadly seriously as I did. Which means, of course, that she was probably right. I was pretty young.’
So does she look back on that younger self as idealistic and naive?
'Not really. If you look at stuff I said, it was usually pretty right on. You might say idealistic, or you might say it was impossible to realise in this lifetime; but it was correct.’
Too serious-minded, perhaps?
'Too self-certain. But that came from the uncertainty about myself.’
Humourless, perhaps?
'I think I kept it under wraps. Because I was hysterical when I was with my family and friends. But pretty humourless in the face of the cameras. And desperately soul-searching, talking to people like you – desperately wanting to be real, you know, and not phoney.’
Were you happy?
'I don’t think I was particularly happy. I think I was sort of dreamy.’
Did the recognition make you happy?
She thinks about this. 'I make a joke in concert now, when they’re clapping and clapping – “Oh, I was never interested in the money; it was the adulation.” But it’s the truth.’
In 1968, at the age of 27, Baez married David Harris, a leader of the movement resisting the draft for Vietnam. They had met in the Santa Rita Rehabilitation Centre in California, where she and her mother had been incarcerated for 45 days for blocking the doorways of the Armed Forces Induction Centre in Oakland. Harris, she recalled in her autobiography, 'was wearing a cowboy hat and looking six foot three, which he is. His smile was one of the sweetest in the world, and his eyes were a shade that a friend of mine calls “unfair blue”.’
Time called it 'the wedding of the century’. In July 1969 Harris was imprisoned again for refusing induction into the draft. Baez was pregnant with their son, Gabe, by then; shortly afterwards she performed at Woodstock. But within three months of Harris’s release from jail they separated, and were divorced in 1972.
In that same year Baez travelled to Hanoi for three weeks as a guest of the North Vietnamese and to deliver mail to American PoWs. On her third night in the city the Americans began what became known as the 'Christmas bombing’ of the city, which continued for 11 days. She remembers fortifying herself with a French saying, 'Je n’ai pas peur – je tremble avec courage.’ But the truth was she had never felt more scared. 'It was the first time I’d ever really felt mortal. 'All of my disguises for fear of death went poof! in the face of real death. Then as soon as I was in the airplane heading home, my fear of vomiting in the airplane comes back, and as we were circling the airport at home to land all my stuff was back, because I was allegedly safe from bombs.’
The maimed and broken bodies lying in the streets after the raids, and the frightened and confused American PoWs, were the most shocking and heartbreaking spectacle Baez says she has ever seen. For years she suppressed all of the horror she had felt. It was not until 2005, when she joined a peace march to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, that it finally came out.
'I put my hands on the wall [where the names of all the servicemen who died or went missing in Vietnam are inscribed], and I just wanted to go into it, and I just screamed my lungs out, and I couldn’t stop screaming. And that, so far, is how I’ve dealt with Hanoi.’
Baez was much criticised by the right for visiting Hanoi, and then, five years later, attacked by the left when she organised full-page advertisements in four major American newspapers criticising human-rights abuses by the new communist Vietnam government. Jane Fonda was among those who excoriated her for that. 'Not a heavy,’ she says briskly. 'She wrote me this terrible letter – it was not even spelt properly. But it was not pressure.’
I sense, I say, that she does not have much time for Fonda.
'Not for her politics. I met her a couple of months ago, and she embraced me so hard. And she was teary. And I embraced her back. I think she has so many regrets and she got hit so hard for that stupid thing she did in Vietnam [when Fonda visited Hanoi in 1972 she allowed herself to be photographed seated on an anti-aircraft gun]. I was sad for her over that. I think her heart was in the right place, but she wasn’t made to be political.’ Baez smiles. 'All the stuff they say about me…’
Baez never remarried following her divorce from David Harris. Had she known then what years of psychotherapy have taught her since, things might have been different, she says; but her marriage had been 'doomed’ from the start, not because of any failing on Harris’s part – 'it was the perfect match’ – but because, as she now puts it, she 'was completely promiscuous’.
The psychotherapy has lent Baez a perspective, and a vocabulary, to talk about this with a disarming candour: 'I was terrified of any intimacy. That’s why 5,000 people suited me just fine. But one-on-one, it was either completely transient – after the concert and be gone next day, and then my participation would make me sick – or it was something that I thought was real but just turned out to be heartbreaking.’
She was close to Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple ('briefly’); and to Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead. But she is at a stage now, she says, where if 'something walked into my life that made sense’ she doubts she would recognise it. 'It certainly is not something I’m going to go looking for, because it seems like an enormous amount of work to construct something I’ve never known.’
This is not necessarily a sad thing, she says, 'if I’m happy, which I am. And if it didn’t – whatever it is – come my way, then maybe someday I’d be terribly lonely, or maybe I won’t be terribly lonely, because I will have constructed my life in a way that it makes sense.’
Her son, Gabe, is now 39, married with a daughter, Jasmine; Gabe is a percussionist who plays in Baez’s band. She says she has always been haunted by the fact that in the years when he was growing up she was often away, either performing or lending her name to a myriad humanitarian causes – supporting the mothers of the 'disappeared’ in Chile and Argentina, performing for Lech Walesa in Gdansk during the Solidarity period.
'It nags me all the time – and he always says the same thing: “Mum, you were there at a time in history when you were the only one who could have done what you did, and I had experiences in my childhood that no other kid could have had.”
I say, “I know that Gabe, but I need to know that I was also a mom.” And he says, “Yes you were a mom.” So it’s my problem.’ She pauses for a moment. 'As we know, forgiveness of oneself is the hardest of all the forgivenesses.’
Baez’s sister Mimi died of cancer at the age of 56 in 2001. Mimi had a modest reputation of her own as a folk singer, but she was always under the shadow of her elder sister. When Mimi was 18 she married Richard Fariña, a mercurial and charismatic figure who was to die in a motorcycle accident two days after the publication of his first novel, Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up to Me – on April 30, 1966. It was Mimi’s 21st birthday, and just three months before Bob Dylan was involved in the motorcycle accident that was to prove a watershed in his career.
Baez and her sister were very close, she says, and her untimely death was 'hideous. Towards the end, she gave me the gift of being so awful to me, almost to make it less hard.’ Her father, Albert, died in 2007. Both of these deaths seemed to have the effect of sharpening Baez’s awareness of mortality, made her mindful of the fact that, as she puts it, she had 'work to do’ in that regard.
She has started spending time at the Spirit Rock retreat of the distinguished American Buddhist teacher Jack Kornfield, with a view to preparing herself, she says, for her mother’s passing. Big Joan is now 96 and lives with Baez in California.
'I’m watching the ageing process,’ Baez says. She laughs. 'Actually, she’s really impossible a lot of the time. She still has her sense of humour, and she still loves men. We take her to hospital, and she’ll flirt with the Indian doctor, “Ooh, you have such lovely brown hands.” They ask her, do you know who’s the President? “Abraham Lincoln”. No, it’s Barack Obama. “Oh, but they have so much in common…” She is wonderful.’
She wants to prepare herself for being with her mother when she dies, she says.
'I’m really, really attached to her and I will miss her terribly; but then I was thinking, you know what, maybe it doesn’t have to be some terrible, dark sinking hole of depression – maybe it can be in some ways a wonderful experience.’
The following afternoon, Baez walks out of the hotel, a change of clothes over her arm, her young assistant beside her toting a guitar case, and climbs into a car waiting to take her to the festival site. She is wearing black jeans, sandals and a shimmering silk bolero jacket, like a matador’s suit of lights. The 'American Masters’ documentary about her life is being previewed in Los Angeles, and Baez has arranged to do a press conference via satellite link in a yacht club near the festival site. The presenter introduces her as 'the woman who has rightly been called the conscience of her generation’.
The very first question from the floor is, 'What is your relationship with Bob Dylan these days? Baez smiles serenely. 'Well, I don’t really have one…’
Someone else asks her if she still considers herself a protest singer. 'The foundation of my beliefs is the same as it was when I was 10,’ she says. 'Non-violence.’ If there is something she can do, then she will do it, she tells me later.
When the civil uprising occurred in Iran earlier this year she recorded a version of We Shall Overcome with a verse in Farsi and posted it on YouTube as a gesture of solidarity. The response, she says, was overwhelming.
She has always been guided by optimism, 'but nowadays the state of the world doesn’t look terribly good, does it, especially with global warming hanging over our heads on top of everything else.
I look at Gabe, his wife and daughter, and think, what’s going to happen?’ She pauses. 'I’m a little concerned about offering hope. But one has to bash on regardless, as you British say.’ She laughs. 'I love that.’
Backstage it is like a gathering of old friends, as Baez embraces Pete Seeger and Judy Collins in a warm hug. The audience is some 15,000 strong, a profusion of grey beards and ponytails, younger families. The air is permeated by a warm sense of sentiment and expectation. 'Fifty years later!’ says Baez as she walks on to the stage. 'My goodness gracious. And we really are putting one foot in front of the other!’
She sings old songs – Silver Dagger, which she first sang 50 years ago – and new ones, her voice as pure as ever it was. Singing Dylan’s Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right, she falls into a teasing impression of his nasal twang during the final verse:
'I ain’t sayin’ you treated me unkind/You could have done better but I don’t mind/You just kinda wasted my precious time…’ – bringing a roar of recognition from the crowd.
At the end, all the performers crowd on to the stage for a grand finale of When the Saints, followed by a Cajun hoe-down. And as the tempo increases and the temperature rises, Joan Baez kicks off her sandals and dances and dances, as if she hasn’t a care in the world.

          Bush saluted with praise, humor, cannons at capital farewell      Cache   Translate Page      

WASHINGTON – George H.W. Bush was celebrated with high praise and loving humor Wednesday as the nation bade farewell to the man who was America’s 41st president and the last to fight for the U.S. in wartime. Three former presidents looked on at Washington National Cathedral as a fourth – George W. Bush – eulogized his dad.

“To us,” the son said of the father, “his was the brightest of a thousand points of light.”

After three days of funeral events in Washington, Bush was headed home to Texas for more ceremony and then his burial Thursday. After the cathedral service, the hearse and a long motorcade drove to the National Mall to pass by the World War II Memorial, a nod to the late president’s service as a World War II Navy pilot, then arrived at Joint Base Andrews.

Cannon roared again, “Hail to the Chief” was played for Bush for a final time in the capital and the plane with his casket and Bush family members aboard took off for Houston. He died Friday at age 94.

George W. Bush broke down briefly at the end of his eulogy while invoking the daughter his parents lost when she was 3 and his mother, Barbara, who died in April. He took comfort in knowing “Dad is hugging Robin and holding Mom’s hand again.”

For all the somber tributes to the late president’s public service and strength of character, laughter filled the cathedral time after time. The late president’s eulogists – son included – noted Bush’s tendency to tangle his words and show his goofy side.

He was “the last great-soldier statesman,” historian Jon Meacham said in his eulogy, “our shield” in dangerous times. But he also said that Bush, campaigning in a crowd in a department store, once shook hands with a mannequin. Rather than flushing in embarrassment, he simply cracked, “Never know. Gotta ask.”

He recounted how comedian Dana Carvey once said the key to doing an impersonation of Bush was “Mr. Rogers trying to be John Wayne.”

George W. Bush said “the man couldn’t stomach vegetables, especially broccoli,” and called that a defect passed down to his children.

The congregation at the cathedral, filled with foreign leaders and diplomats, Americans of high office and others touched by Bush’s life, rose for the arrival of the casket, accompanied by clergy of faiths from around the world. In their row together, President Donald Trump and former Presidents Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton stood with their spouses and all placed their hands over their hearts.

Meacham also praised Bush’s call to volunteerism – his “1,000 points of light” – placing it alongside Abraham Lincoln’s call to honor “the better angels of our nature” in the American rhetorical canon. Meacham called those lines “companion verses in America’s national hymn.”

Trump had mocked “1,000 points of light” last summer at a rally, saying “What the hell is that? Has anyone ever figured that one out? And it was put out by a Republican, wasn’t it?”

Former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney praised Bush as a strong world leader who helped oversee the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union and helped bring about the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico, signed into law by his successor, Clinton.

With Trump, a bitter NAFTA critic, seated in the front row, Mulroney hailed the “largest and richest free trade area in the history of the world.” The three countries have agreed on a revised trade agreement pushed by Trump.

Alan Simpson, former Republican senator from Wyoming, regaled the congregation with stories from his years as Bush’s friend in Washington. More seriously, he recalled that when he went through a rough patch in the political game, Bush conspicuously stood by him against the advice of aides. “You would have wanted him on your side,” he said.

Simpson said Bush “loved a good joke – the richer the better. And he threw his head back and gave that great laugh, but he never, ever could remember a punchline. And I mean never.”

George W. Bush turned the humor back on the acerbic ex-senator, saying of the late president: “He placed great value on a good joke, so he chose Simpson to speak.”

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

On Wednesday morning, a military band played “Hail to the Chief” as Bush’s casket was carried down the steps of the U.S. Capitol, where he had lain in state. Family members looked on as servicemen fired off a cannon salute.

His hearse was then driven in a motorcade to the cathedral ceremony, slowing in front of the White House. Bush’s route was lined with people much of the way, bundled in winter hats and taking photos.

Waiting for his arrival inside, Trump shook hands with Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama, who greeted him by saying “Good morning.” Trump did not shake hands with Bill and Hillary Clinton, who looked straight ahead.

Bill Clinton and Mrs. Obama smiled and chatted as music played. Carter was seated silently next to Hillary Clinton in the cavernous cathedral. Obama cracked up laughing at someone’s quip. Vice President Mike Pence shook Carter’s hand.

Trump tweeted Wednesday that the day marked “a celebration for a great man who has led a long and distinguished life.” Trump and his wife took their seats after the others, briefly greeting the Obamas seated next to them.

Bush’s death makes Carter, also 94 but more than 100 days younger, the oldest living ex-president.

On Tuesday, soldiers, citizens in wheelchairs and long lines of others on foot wound through the Capitol Rotunda to view Bush’s casket and honor a president whose legacy included World War military service and a landmark law affirming the rights of the disabled. Former Sen. Bob Dole, a compatriot in war, peace and political struggle, steadied himself out of his wheelchair and saluted his old friend and one-time rival.

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

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

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

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

JOSÉ ÁNGEL GOIRIENA LIMA: UN CASO ENTRE MILES


Coliseo de la Ciudad Deportiva de La Habana o Palacio de los Deportes

Por Esteban Fernández
4 de diciembre de 2018

Muchas cosas que pasaron en Cuba hoy son una verdadera sorpresa para muchos compatriotas.

Por eso les cuento que durante mediados de abril del año 61 (preludio y durante la invasión de Playa Girón) los esbirros castristas se llevaron MILES DE CUBANOS PRESOS. El acabose.

Como no había calabozos para tanta gente entonces llenaron estadios de jugar pelotas, el Palacio de los Deportes y hasta solares baldíos.

No todos eran contrarrevolucionarios, solo tenían que ser sospechosos de no simpatizar con el recién estrenado régimen. Sólo era necesario un chivatazo de un vecino y la turba se llevaba preso a cualquiera. Muchos días sin bañarse, sin afeitarse y dificultándoseles completamente hasta hacer sus más perentorias necesidades. Amenazados de que serían pasados por las armas si la invasión lucía estar ganando la pelea.

Todos estaban hacinando como ganado en infrahumanas condiciones, tirados dentro de un montón, allí lo mismo estaba detenido un guajiro, un abogado o un sacerdote.

Unos se quedaron encarcelados por largo tiempo, otros -como Humberto Sorí Marín, “Ñongo” Puig, Rogelio González Corso, Eufemio Fernández y varios más- fueron fusilados, a los demás los fueron soltando poco a poco.

Varios días después alguien toca a mi puerta. Abrí y era un antiguo amigo del Colegio Americano y del Instituto: José Ángel Goiriena Lima. Era uno de los recién liberados.

(Ciudad Deportiva donde fueron confinados miles  de habaneros en abril de 1961 sospechosos de no simpatizar con la Revolución. El Palmar de Junco en Matanzas fue otro de los estadiums para confinar a sospechosos, los cuales eran vigilados y apuntados con ametralladoras. Fotos y comentario  añadidos por el Bloguista de Baracutey Cubano)

Parecía “la estampa de la elegía”, sucio, barbudo, oliendo mal, y con la ropa completamente ajada.

Le dije: “¿Qué pasó José Ángel?” Y me respondió con otra pregunta: “Estebita ¿tú tienes ducha en tu casa?” Le contesto: “Claro que sí, entra” Y me respondió: “Chico, es que no quiero llegar a dónde está mi abuelita Agustina oliendo a rayos”.

Acto seguido, vino otro problema: mi hermano y yo éramos extremadamente flacos y José Ángel era fuerte como un toro y levantador de pesas. Es decir, nuestra ropa no le serviría.

En eso pasó la vecina Rosa Cohen y le expliqué la situación y me atreví a pedirle que me prestara un pantalón y una camisa de uno de sus hijos, a pesar de que ellos, Lincoln y Franklin Fontanills, estaban apoyando decididamente a la revolución.  No me respondió ni una sola palabra, me viró las espaldas, pero antes de cinco minutos me trajo una muda de ropa para José Ángel de su hijo Franklin.

Acompañé a José Ángel hasta su casa para servirle de testigo ante su abuela Agustina -viuda de Melitón Goiriena- de que habíamos estado varios días de vacaciones en Varadero.

Como es natural -porque ya sabemos que este exilio se ha convertido en un relajo- los hermanos Fontanills, quienes radicalmente se convirtieron en mis enemigos, hoy son médicos en Florida.

          RIVAL SONS Announce North American Headline Tour      Cache   Translate Page      
Long Beach, California's RIVAL SONS have announced their first full North American headline tour. The dates include stops at New York's Brooklyn Steel, Philadelphia's Union Transfer and Los Angeles's Henry Fonda Theatre. THE SHEEPDOGS will support all U.S. dates. Pre-sales begin Wednesday, December 5 at 10:00 a.m. local time; all remaining tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, December 7 at 10:00 a.m. local. The upcoming tour schedule marks the release of RIVAL SONS' much-anticipated new album, "Feral Roots", which arrives everywhere on January 25 via Low Country Sound/Atlantic Records. "Feral Roots" was produced by Grammy Award winner Dave Cobb at Nashville's famed RCA Studio A, and the equally legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Exclusive pre-order bundles are available via RivalSons.com, including limited-edition vinyl and autographed lithographs of the album's cover art, painted by renowned contemporary artist Martin Wittfooth. All pre-orders are joined by instant grat downloads of the recently released album tracks "Do Your Worst" and "Back In The Woods". Rolling Stone hailed "Do Your Worst" as "a relentless rocker with a gritty verse spearheaded by a sinister lead guitar riff and thumping drums. The track takes a deft turn when it hits the chorus, forgoing out-and-out guitar bombast for rousing gang vocals with singer Jay Buchanan leading the charge." "Do Your Worst" is joined by an official music video that shows rival sons at their onstage best, alongside behind-the-scenes footage and a performance filmed at the aforementioned Studio A. "Back In The Woods" made its debut by way of Consequence Of Sound, which declared it to be "a rootsy rock track, with (RIVAL SONS) not only taking us 'Back In The Woods' but also back in time to big classic rock sounds of the '60s and '70s." The primal intensity of "Feral Roots" reflects a certain unrest at the heart of the album, sparked by Buchanan's recent move to Tennessee. "With all the stimuli we're constantly receiving these days, I think a lot of people have a desire to live with more freedom and simplicity," noted Buchanan. "There's a longing for your truer nature to prevail, and to reclaim some sort of wildness." But with its nuanced explorations of art and love and truth, "Feral Roots" ultimately argues for pushing beyond pure survival instincts and striving for something more exalted: an unbreakable commitment to creating beauty of your own. RIVAL SONS are also set for a special headline performance at 98.9 The Bear's Electric Christmas, on December 15 at Fort Wayne, Indiana's Pierre's Entertainment Center. RIVAL SONS are: Jay Buchanan (vocals), Scott Holiday (guitar), Dave Beste (bass guitar) and Mike Miley (drums).

The Story Of Lamborghini New Models Has Just Gone Viral! | lamborghini new models

Lamborghini now sells an SUV.

lamborghini new model 2014 gold – lamborghini new models | lamborghini new models

That’s right, the iconic cast that already brought us bonkers low-slung models like the Countach, Diablo and Murciélago has abutting the ranks of Bentley, Maserati, Rolls-Royce – and anon Aston Martin and Ferrari – by backhanding its sports car ancestry with the absolution of a five-door ancestors 4X4.

Called the Urus, it’s the aboriginal time Lamborghini has advised cossack capacity, rear legroom and three-point turns to be appropriately important as cornering downforce, aught to 62mph times and top speeds eclipsing 200mph.

Does this beggarly the acclaimed Italian supercar maker has absent the aspect of what a Lamborghini is – or at atomic what we anticipate it should be? I had a adventitious to get abaft the caster of one of the aboriginal right-hand drive examples in the UK to acquisition out…

Urus in the UK: Lamborghini clearly appear the new SUV about a year ago, but it’s taken until now for the aboriginal right-hand-drive models to access here. And we’ve apprenticed one…

For those of you with acceptable memories you’ll apperceive this isn’t the aboriginal Lamborghini ‘passenger ‘ (not including tractors) 4X4.

The aboriginal was the LM002 – the aftereffect of a bootless aggressive activity that was angry into an absolute offroader in 1986.

Just 301 were built, anniversary costing about £96,000 new – the agnate of £277,000 today – and they were powered by a 5.2-litre V12 agent that necked a gallon of ammunition every bristles miles. It wasn’t what you’d alarm a ancestors car.

But the Urus is a accomplished altered prospect. While it ability not be Lamborghini’s aboriginal offroader, it is the aboriginal SUV, aka sports account vehicle, elastic formed with a aggressive balderdash on the bonnet.

And it’s those three belletrist that accept larboard traditionalists, enthusiasts and affluence others cutting their teeth in disdain.

Because while boilerplate brands like BMW, Ford and Volkswagen accept been forgiven for saturating the bazaar with these jacked-up hatchbacks, sports car makers haven’t accustomed the aforementioned absolution aback announcement their own affected vehicles.

For a cast like Lamborghini, which has exotica pumping through its veins, to advertise a affluent family-focused SUV is, for many, sacrilegious.

And the accommodation has been met with added scepticism aback it was appear that the Urus is heavily based on the Audi Q7 – a £52,00 aberrant German SUV that’s about as far from a agitative Lambo as you can get.

The LM002 was the aboriginal Lamborghini ‘passenger’ 4X4, admitting it was a absolutely altered anticipation to the new Urus

The LM002 was aboriginal alleged the Cheetah and advised to carriage aggressive troops. However, already the activity was canned, it was adapted into a affluence offroader for the public. The Urus has been developed so you can carriage your babyish army

Many aren’t afflicted that Lamborghini now sells an astronomic SUV that weighs the aforementioned as two Ford Fiestas

But abhorrence not, anxious Lamborghini aficionados, as the Urus’ achievement abstracts are best absolutely added Aventador than Audi.

Under the beanie is a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 agent – the Italian supercar maker’s aboriginal eight-cylinder motor not to be artlessly aspirated – with stats that obliterate every added SUV in a bold of Top Trumps.

Headlining is a ability achievement of 641bhp and 627lb ft of torque; abundant antithesis to advance from a standstill to 62mph in 3.6 abnormal and to a top dispatch of 190mph.

All of this from a agent that tips the scales at 2.2 tonnes, has bristles seats (unless you appeal the four-seat advantage at a amount of £3,150) and a cossack big abundant to beam in the face of a fully-loaded Ikea trolley.

The Urus shares a belvedere and abounding genitalia with this – the Audi Q7 SUV. Looking at the pair, it’s adamantine to accept the two models are mechanically accompanying at all

Under the beanie is Lamborghini’s aboriginal turbocharged V8. The 4.0-litre assemblage produces 641bhp and 627lb ft of torque. Like best engines today it is hidden below a cover, however.

Measuring in at over 5.1 metres, the Lamborghini Urus is 30cm best than the boilerplate UK parking space

Lamborghini Aventador Flying 2017 3D Model | FlatPyramid – lamborghini new models | lamborghini new models

While it ability be as ample and abundant as a applied ancestors car, it absolutely doesn’t attending like one. Actually, it’s difficult to brainstorm there’s an Audi ambuscade underneath.

Just as aback Porsche aboriginal showed us the Cayenne in 2003, it can be a claiming to absolutely acknowledge the acute architecture cues aback they’re cloaking such an astronomic canvas.

And the Urus is enormous. Borderline ridiculous. Especially aback you accede it’s about bisected a accent best than the boilerplate UK parking space.

It assuredly won’t be to all tastes, but there’s no abstinent it has all the attendance and wow-factor a Lamborghini needs to command stares.

But you accept to pay a ample aberrant for all this bravado. Costing from aloof beneath £160,000, the Urus’ amount tag is arguably the best Lamborghini accomplishment of them all.

Our analysis car, absolutely loaded with added kit, was a amazing £208,000. Still, it’s fractionally cheaper than the LM002, already you agency in inflation.

Our car came specced with the alternative four-seat blueprint with fully-adjustable chairs. As you can see, there’s affluence of rear legroom (as there should be because the admeasurement of the car). The cossack can authority up to 616 litres of baggage – ideal for Ikea trips

          Bush celebrated with praise and humor at cathedral farewell      Cache   Translate Page      

WASHINGTON (AP) — George H.W. Bush was celebrated with high praise and loving humor Wednesday as the nation bade farewell to the man who was America's 41st president and the last to fight for the U.S. in wartime. Three former presidents looked on at Washington National Cathedral as a fourth — George W. Bush — eulogized his dad.

"To us," the son said of the father, "his was the brightest of a thousand points of light."

George W. Bush broke down briefly at the end of his eulogy while invoking the daughter his parents lost when she was 3 and his mother, Barbara, who died in April. He took comfort in knowing "Dad is hugging Robin and holding Mom's hand again."

For all the somber tributes to the late president's public service and strength of character, laughter filled the cathedral time after time. The late president's eulogists — son included — noted Bush's tendency to tangle his words and show his goofy side.

He was "the last great-soldier statesman," historian Jon Meacham said in his eulogy, "our shield" in dangerous times. But he also said that Bush, campaigning in a crowd in a department store, once shook hands with a mannequin. Rather than flushing in embarrassment, he simply cracked, "Never know. Gotta ask."

After the service, the hearse and a long procession of cars headed for Joint Base Andrews and the flight to Texas — but first down to the National Mall to pass by the World War II Memorial.

The congregation at the cathedral, filled with foreign leaders and diplomats, Americans of high office and others touched by Bush's life, rose for the arrival of the casket, accompanied by clergy of faiths from around the world. In their row together, President Donald Trump and former Presidents Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton stood with their spouses and all placed their hands over their hearts.

Meacham also praised Bush's call to volunteerism — his "1,000 points of light" — placing it alongside Abraham Lincoln's call to honor "the better angels of our nature" in the American rhetorical canon. Meacham called those lines "companion verses in America's national hymn."

Trump had mocked "1,000 points of light" last summer at a rally, saying "What the hell is that? Has anyone ever figured that one out? And it was put out by a Republican, wasn't it?"

Former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney praised Bush as a strong world leader who helped oversee the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union and set the stage for the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico, achieved under his successor, Clinton.

With Trump, a NAFTA critic, seated in the front row, Mulroney hailed the "largest and richest free trade area in the history of the world." The three countries have agreed on a revised trade agreement pushed by Trump.

Alan Simpson, former Republican senator from Wyoming, regaled the congregation with stories from his years as Bush's friend in Washington. More seriously, he recalled that when he went through a rough patch in the political game, Bush conspicuously stood by him against the advice of aides. "You would have wanted him on your side," he said.

The national funeral service capped three days of remembrance in Washington before Bush's remains return to Texas on Wednesday for burial Thursday. He died Friday at age 94.

Bush will lie in repose at St. Martin's Episcopal Church before burial at his family plot on the presidential library grounds at Texas A&M University in College Station. His final resting place will be alongside Barbara Bush, his wife of 73 years, and Robin Bush, the daughter they lost to leukemia in 1953.

On Wednesday morning, a military band played "Hail to the Chief" as Bush's casket was carried down the steps of the U.S. Capitol, where he had lain in state. Family members looked on as servicemen fired off a cannon salute.

His hearse was then driven in a motorcade to the cathedral ceremony, slowing in front of the White House. Bush's route was lined with people much of the way, bundled in winter hats and taking photos.

Waiting for his arrival inside, Trump shook hands with Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama, who greeted him by saying "Good morning." Trump did not shake hands with Bill and Hillary Clinton, who looked straight ahead.

Bill Clinton and Mrs. Obama smiled and chatted as music played. Carter was seated silently next to Hillary Clinton in the cavernous cathedral. Obama cracked up laughing at someone's quip. Vice President Mike Pence shook Carter's hand.

Trump tweeted Wednesday that the day marked "a celebration for a great man who has led a long and distinguished life." Trump and his wife took their seats after the others, briefly greeting the Obamas seated next to them.

On Tuesday, soldiers, citizens in wheelchairs and long lines of others on foot wound through the Capitol Rotunda to view Bush's casket and honor a president whose legacy included World War military service and a landmark law affirming the rights of the disabled. Former Sen. Bob Dole, a compatriot in war, peace and political struggle, steadied himself out of his wheelchair and saluted his old friend and one-time rival.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

21 Taboos About Lamborghini Top Speeds You Should Never Share On Twitter | lamborghini top speeds

Lamborghini now sells an SUV.

21 Lamborghini Top Speed 21Mph (21kmph) | Lamborghini Aventador … – lamborghini top speeds | lamborghini top speeds

That’s right, the iconic cast that already brought us bonkers low-slung models like the Countach, Diablo and Murciélago has abutting the ranks of Bentley, Maserati, Rolls-Royce – and anon Aston Martin and Ferrari – by backhanding its sports car ancestry with the absolution of a five-door ancestors 4X4.

Called the Urus, it’s the aboriginal time Lamborghini has advised cossack capacity, rear legroom and three-point turns to be appropriately important as cornering downforce, aught to 62mph times and top speeds eclipsing 200mph.

Does this beggarly the acclaimed Italian supercar maker has absent the aspect of what a Lamborghini is – or at atomic what we anticipate it should be? I had a adventitious to get abaft the caster of one of the aboriginal right-hand drive examples in the UK to acquisition out…

Urus in the UK: Lamborghini clearly appear the new SUV about a year ago, but it’s taken until now for the aboriginal right-hand-drive models to access here. And we’ve apprenticed one…

For those of you with acceptable memories you’ll apperceive this isn’t the aboriginal Lamborghini ‘passenger ‘ (not including tractors) 4X4.

The aboriginal was the LM002 – the aftereffect of a bootless aggressive activity that was angry into an absolute offroader in 1986.

Just 301 were built, anniversary costing about £96,000 new – the agnate of £277,000 today – and they were powered by a 5.2-litre V12 agent that necked a gallon of ammunition every bristles miles. It wasn’t what you’d alarm a ancestors car.

But the Urus is a accomplished altered prospect. While it ability not be Lamborghini’s aboriginal offroader, it is the aboriginal SUV, aka sports account vehicle, elastic formed with a aggressive balderdash on the bonnet.

And it’s those three belletrist that accept larboard traditionalists, enthusiasts and affluence others cutting their teeth in disdain.

Because while boilerplate brands like BMW, Ford and Volkswagen accept been forgiven for saturating the bazaar with these jacked-up hatchbacks, sports car makers haven’t accustomed the aforementioned absolution aback announcement their own affected vehicles.

For a cast like Lamborghini, which has exotica pumping through its veins, to advertise a affluent family-focused SUV is, for many, sacrilegious.

And the accommodation has been met with added scepticism aback it was appear that the Urus is heavily based on the Audi Q7 – a £52,00 aberrant German SUV that’s about as far from a agitative Lambo as you can get.

The LM002 was the aboriginal Lamborghini ‘passenger’ 4X4, admitting it was a absolutely altered anticipation to the new Urus

The LM002 was aboriginal alleged the Cheetah and advised to carriage aggressive troops. However, already the activity was canned, it was adapted into a affluence offroader for the public. The Urus has been developed so you can carriage your babyish army

Many aren’t afflicted that Lamborghini now sells an astronomic SUV that weighs the aforementioned as two Ford Fiestas

But abhorrence not, anxious Lamborghini aficionados, as the Urus’ achievement abstracts are best absolutely added Aventador than Audi.

Under the beanie is a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 agent – the Italian supercar maker’s aboriginal eight-cylinder motor not to be artlessly aspirated – with stats that obliterate every added SUV in a bold of Top Trumps.

Headlining is a ability achievement of 641bhp and 627lb ft of torque; abundant antithesis to advance from a standstill to 62mph in 3.6 abnormal and to a top dispatch of 190mph.

All of this from a agent that tips the scales at 2.2 tonnes, has bristles seats (unless you appeal the four-seat advantage at a amount of £3,150) and a cossack big abundant to beam in the face of a fully-loaded Ikea trolley.

The Urus shares a belvedere and abounding genitalia with this – the Audi Q7 SUV. Looking at the pair, it’s adamantine to accept the two models are mechanically accompanying at all

Under the beanie is Lamborghini’s aboriginal turbocharged V8. The 4.0-litre assemblage produces 641bhp and 627lb ft of torque. Like best engines today it is hidden below a cover, however.

Measuring in at over 5.1 metres, the Lamborghini Urus is 30cm best than the boilerplate UK parking space

While it ability be as ample and abundant as a applied ancestors car, it absolutely doesn’t attending like one. Actually, it’s difficult to brainstorm there’s an Audi ambuscade underneath.

Just as aback Porsche aboriginal showed us the Cayenne in 2003, it can be a claiming to absolutely acknowledge the acute architecture cues aback they’re cloaking such an astronomic canvas.

And the Urus is enormous. Borderline ridiculous. Especially aback you accede it’s about bisected a accent best than the boilerplate UK parking space.

It assuredly won’t be to all tastes, but there’s no abstinent it has all the attendance and wow-factor a Lamborghini needs to command stares.

But you accept to pay a ample aberrant for all this bravado. Costing from aloof beneath £160,000, the Urus’ amount tag is arguably the best Lamborghini accomplishment of them all.

Our analysis car, absolutely loaded with added kit, was a amazing £208,000. Still, it’s fractionally cheaper than the LM002, already you agency in inflation.

Our car came specced with the alternative four-seat blueprint with fully-adjustable chairs. As you can see, there’s affluence of rear legroom (as there should be because the admeasurement of the car). The cossack can authority up to 616 litres of baggage – ideal for Ikea trips

          Dwayne Haskins receives top offensive honor on AP All-Big Ten team      Cache   Translate Page      

Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. is the offensive player of the year and Michigan linebacker Devin Bush is defensive player of the year on The Associated Press All-Big Ten Conference team released Wednesday.

Freshman receiver Rondale Moore of Purdue was voted newcomer of the year, and Northwestern's Pat Fitzgerald was named coach of the year after leading the Wildcats to the Big Ten championship game for the first time.

Michigan had seven players on the first team, including five from the nation's top-ranked defense. Wisconsin had five first-team picks and conference champion Ohio State had three.

Haskins, in his first year as a starter, set Big Ten records and leads the nation with 4,580 passing yards and 47 touchdown passes. He passed for more than 300 yards in nine games, including five games with better than 400 yards.

Bush has been a disruptive force for Michigan, leading the team with 80 tackles and ranking second from his linebacker position in sacks (five) and tackles for loss (9.5).

Moore occupied two spots, as a wide receiver and all-purpose player. Moore's 103 receptions are most in the nation and second-most in a season by a Big Ten player, and his 1,164 receiving yards lead the conference. Moore also rushed for 203 yards on 18 carries and returned punts and kicks for the Boilermakers.

Four of Wisconsin's five first-team picks are repeat selections — running back Jonathan Taylor, offensive linemen Michael Deiter and Beau Benzschawel and linebacker T.J. Edwards. Taylor was a unanimous choice. Ohio State defensive lineman Dre'Mont Jones also made the first team for the second straight year.

Fitzgerald, Northwestern's 13th-year coach, led the Wildcats to an 8-1 record in Big Ten play, matching the best mark in program history. They went 0-3 in nonconference play and had to overcome a spate of injuries to win their first West Division title.

The All-Big Ten team was selected by 27 writers and broadcasters who cover the conference.

Lincoln Rhyme-ot tejesen leköti egy nemzetközi nyomozás, amikor váratlan és kellemetlen telefonhívást kap: előre megfontolt gyilkosság vádjával letartóztatják unokatestvérét, Arthurt. Minden jel arra mutat, hogy ő a tettes.

          Solemn public pays tribute as Bush lies in state in Rotunda      Cache   Translate Page      
WASHINGTON (AP) — The nation’s capital embraced George H.W. Bush in death with solemn ceremony and high tributes to his service and decency, as the remains of the 41st president took their place in the Capitol Rotunda for three days of mourning and praise by the political elite and everyday citizens alike.

Members of the public lined up before sunrise to pay their respects as an honor guard stood watch beside Bush’s casket in the cavernous Rotunda, open until Wednesday’s funeral.

With Bush’s casket atop the Lincoln Catafalque, first used for Abraham Lincoln’s 1865 funeral, dignitaries came forward Monday to honor the Texan whose efforts for his country extended three quarters of a century from World War II through his final years as an advocate for volunteerism and relief for people displaced by natural disaster.

President from 1989 to 1993, Bush died Friday at age 94.

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

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

Vice President Mike Pence and Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell also spoke. President Donald Trump did not attend, but he and first lady Melania Trump came to the Capitol later Monday to pay tribute. They stood in front of the casket with their eyes closed for a few moments, before Trump saluted the casket.

Political combatants set aside their fights to honor a Republican who led in a less toxic era and at times found commonality with Democrats despite sharp policy disagreements. Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi, a past House speaker nominated for the post in the new Congress, exchanged a warm hug with George W. Bush and came away dabbing her face. Bush himself seemed to be holding back tears.

Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the Senate Democratic leader, placed wreaths in the short ceremony before the rotunda was opened to the public.

Sent off from Texas with a 21-gun salute, Bush’s casket was carried to Joint Base Andrews outside the capital city aboard an aircraft that often serves as Air Force One and designated “Special Air Mission 41” in honor of Bush’s place on the chronological list of presidents. His eldest son, former President George W. Bush, and others from the family traveled on the flight from Houston.

Cannon fire roared again outside the Capitol as the sun sank and the younger President Bush stood with his hand over his heart, watching the casket’s procession up the steps.Bush was remembered just feet away from what he called “Democracy’s front porch,” the west-facing steps of the Capitol where he was sworn in as president.

He will lie in state in the Capitol for public visitation through Wednesday. An invitation-only funeral service, which the Trumps will attend, is set for Wednesday at Washington National Cathedral.

Although Bush’s funeral services are suffused with the flourishes accorded presidents, by his choice they will not include a formal funeral procession through downtown Washington.Eulogies will be offered by former President George W. Bush, former Sen. Alan Simpson of Wyoming, former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and historian Jon Meacham, Bush family spokesmen said.

On Sunday, students, staff and visitors had flocked to Bush’s presidential library on the campus of Texas A&M University, with thousands of mourners paying their respects at a weekend candlelight vigil at a nearby pond and others contributing to growing flower memorials at Bush statues at both the library and a park in downtown Houston.

“I think he was one of the kindest, most generous men,” said Marge Frazier, who visited the downtown statue Sunday while showing friends from California around.

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

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

Bush’s passing puts him in the Washington spotlight after more than two decades living the relatively low-key life of a former president. His death also reduces membership in the ex-presidents’ club to four: Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

One of Bush’s major achievements was assembling the international military coalition that liberated the tiny, oil-rich nation of Kuwait from invading neighbor Iraq in 1991. The war lasted just 100 hours. He also presided over the end of the Cold War between the United States and the former Soviet Union.

A humble hero of World War II, Bush was just 20 when he survived being shot down during a bombing run over a Japanese island. He had joined the Navy when he turned 18.

Shortly before leaving the service, he married his 19-year-old sweetheart, Barbara Pierce, and forged the longest presidential marriage in U.S. history. Bush enrolled at Yale University after military service, becoming a scholar-athlete and captaining the baseball team to two College World Series before graduating Phi Beta Kappa after just 2½ years.

After moving to Texas to work in the oil business, Bush turned his attention to politics in the 1960s. He was elected to the first of two terms in Congress in 1967. He would go on to serve as ambassador to the United Nations and China, head of the CIA and chairman of the Republican National Committee before being elected to two terms as Ronald Reagan’s vice president.

Soon after he reached the height of his political popularity following the liberation of Kuwait, with public approval ratings that are the envy of today’s politicians, the U.S. economy began to sour and voters began to believe that Bush, never a great communicator — something even he acknowledged — was out of touch with ordinary people.

He was denied a second term by Arkansas Gov. Clinton, who would later become a close friend. The pair worked together to raise tens of millions of dollars for victims of a 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and of Hurricane Katrina, which swamped New Orleans and the Gulf Coast in 2005.

“Who would have thought that I would be working with Bill Clinton of all people?” he joked in 2005.

In a recent essay, Clinton declared of Bush: “I just loved him.”


          Bush’s state funeral follows generations of tradition      Cache   Translate Page      
Former President George H.W. Bush’s state funeral encompasses four days of events, from his arrival in Washington to his burial in Texas on Thursday.

The guidelines for state funerals date back to the mid-1800s and have been shaped over time. Seating arrangements, for example, are detailed with precision, with the presidential party followed by chiefs of state, arranged alphabetically by the English spelling of their countries.

Ronald Reagan’s state funeral in 2004 was the first of its kind since Lyndon Johnson died in 1973. Gerald Ford’s state funeral overlapped the end of 2006 and the beginning of 2007.The president, former presidents and a president-elect are all entitled to a state funeral, but the family decides if they actually get one or just how involved it will be. Richard Nixon’s family, acting on his wishes, opted out of the Washington traditions when he died in 1994, his presidency shortened and forever tainted by Watergate.

The rules and what actually happens are based on what has come before.

John F. Kennedy’s services were modeled after those of Abraham Lincoln, at the request of his widow, Jacqueline, in her first public statement after the assassination. Historians examined musty documents by flashlight in the middle of the night as the stunned country waited for a plan — the Library of Congress’ automatic lights could not be rigged to come on after hours.

Bush is the 12th president to lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda. Like many presidents, Bush and Ford served in Congress. Reagan did not.

Eight presidents have had funeral processions down Pennsylvania Avenue, including all four presidents to die by assassination — Lincoln, James Garfield, William McKinley and Kennedy. Bush decided his state funeral would not include a formal procession through downtown Washington.

Washington National Cathedral, which will host Bush’s national service Wednesday, served the same function for Dwight D. Eisenhower, Reagan and Ford.

Two presidents are buried at Arlington National Cemetery: Kennedy and William Howard Taft. Bush will be buried at his presidential library in College Station, Texas, near his wife, Barbara, who died in April, and their daughter Robin, who died of leukemia at age 3.

Only sitting presidents and immediate family members have ever lain in the White House for viewing. Ex-president John Adams didn’t even lie in the White House, though his son, John Quincy Adams, was the sitting president at the time of the death. The older Adams died the same day as Thomas Jefferson — July 4, 1826 — possibly complicating his chances for a White House viewing.

The Capitol has a more expansive policy for lying in state. Congressman Henry Clay, in 1852, was the first to lie in the Capitol Rotunda. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover lay in the Capitol in 1972. Police officers killed in 1998 while protecting the Capitol also lay in state there. Sen. John McCain lay in state after his death earlier this year.

The first presidential state funeral was for William Henry Harrison, who in 1841 became the first president to die in office, just 30 days after his inauguration. Alexander Hunter, a Washington merchant, was tasked with putting on a first-of-its-kind American ceremony. He draped the White House in black. Official buildings and many private households followed suit, starting a now-lost tradition that was repeated at Lincoln’s funeral 25 years later.

脱原発を目指したドイツで起きた事
