David Lynch: Someone is in my House
30.11.2018 - 28.04.2019
Bonnefantenmuseum Maastricht

On 30 November, the Bonnefantenmuseum is hosting the long-awaited extensive retrospective Someone is in my House, by the American artist David Lynch.
Although David Lynch is undoubtedly a pivotal figure in the international film and TV world, his work as a visual artist is not nearly as well-known. This is strange, to say the least, as Lynch has always stressed that he sees himself primarily as a visual artist; a visual artist who came into contact with the medium of film during his studies at the art academy by chance. This encounter formed the basis for his career as film director. Alongside his work as a director, Lynch has always remained active as a visual artist and in recent decades has created a vast oeuvre of paintings, drawings, lithos, photos, lamp sculptures, music and installations. Up to now, this oeuvre has seldom been exhibited in museums. The Bonnefantenmuseum is not only presenting the first museum exhibition of Lynch's visual art in the Netherlands, but also the largest retrospective ever, comprising over 500 works by the artist.

About David Lynch, visual artist
Although the work of Lynch (1946, Missoula, Montana, US) might suggest otherwise, filled as it is with dark violence and sexuality, the artist and filmmaker's childhood was a happy and loving one. Lynch's parents loved to travel, so he led a nomadic life from an early age, which for him was an idyllic and safe environment. Encouraged from an early age to be creative – colouring books were forbidden in favour of using his own imagination – he ended up studying painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, in Philadelphia. There, Lynch developed his artistic vocabulary and themes that would recur throughout his future work. It also paved the way to his first mixed media installation with stop-motion film, Six Men Getting Sick (Six Times) (1967), which formed the prelude to his first feature film Eraserhead (1977). The rest is (film) history, and nowadays Lynch's films are modern classics.
Lynch's artistry runs like a thread through his life and his films. Throughout his fifty-year career, he has continued to draw and paint, even when his work as a film director meant there was little time to spend in his studio.
"I miss painting when I'm not painting", says Lynch himself in the recent autobiography Room to Dream."
In collaboration with David Lynch, the Bonnefantenmuseum is presenting an impressive retrospective of Lynch's multifaceted artistry. The exhibition includes paintings, photos, drawings, lithos and watercolours spanning the sixties to the present, unique drawings on matchbooks from the seventies, sketchbooks from the sixties, seventies and eighties, black and white photos from various periods, including the famous Snow Men photo series (1993), cartoons from the series The Angriest Dog in the World (1982-1993), audio works and some short films from 1968-2015. And for the first time since its creation in 1967, the all-decisive academy work Six Men Getting Sick (Six Times) will be shown in a museum exhibition.

          Secret Santa pays off nearly $30K in Walmart layaways      Cache   Translate Page      
KENNETT SQUARE, Pa. (AP) — A Secret Santa made the holiday season a little brighter for hundreds of shoppers near Philadelphia after paying off nearly $30,000 worth of layaways at a Walmart. Andy Rumford, of Kennett Square, tells The Daily Local he was shocked when he went to make a payment at the East Marlborough location and found out someone had picked up the tab. A Walmart official tells the newspaper the person who paid off the accounts wants to remain anonymous. Rumford owned about $150 on his items and went to pick them up on Saturday. The cashier told him someone came in and wrote a $29,000 check to pay off all the items on layaway in the whole store.

Civil disobedience: Pat Maginnis may be the most important pro-choice activist you’ve never heard of. In the ’60s, she distributed information about abortion—and talked openly about her own—on the streets of San Francisco, flouting both California law and the more moderate efforts of other abortion reformers.

Let them in: About 500 Yemeni refugees have made their way into South Korea, and just this has been enough to catalyze wide-scale protest from the citizenry and exclusion by the government. Why would South Korea, a country that is itself historically familiar with the pain and adjustment of mass displacement, react so harshly? Stephen K. Hirst analyzes.

Change is coming: Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner has already made a name for himself as a determined criminal justice reformer, taking bolder steps than most prosecutors around the country. Maura Quint examines his latest move: reducing the overcharging of murder cases.

The Net: It only took multiple decades, but Hollywood has finally captured the internet’s mise-en-scène, according to Inkoo Kang. She looks through the lens of four 2018 films in order to understand how movies have “successfully dramatized and illuminated how the web has transformed our relationships to ourselves and each other.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


          Florida Man Claims Sheriff Held Him for ICE for More Than Two Weeks Despite Proof of U.S. Citizenship      Cache   Translate Page      

A Florida man born in Philadelphia has filed a lawsuit alleging Immigration and Customs Enforcement detained him for weeks and prepared for his deportation to Jamaica, despite numerous documented complaints that he was a U.S. citizen and had only been to the island nation once on a one-day stop on a cruise years ago.

Peter Sean Brown, who filed the lawsuit Monday, had turned himself in to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office in April for a probation violation after testing positive for marijuana. But rather than being released a few days later or given a court date, according to the lawsuit, he was handed over to ICE and mocked by agents who refused to listen to his protestations. When he was finally released 22 days later, he had lost his job at his job at a Key West, Florida, restaurant.

According to the Washington Post, Monroe County is one of a dozen Florida counties that entered an agreement with ICE in which ICE promised to compensate sheriffs financially for holding “criminal aliens” already in their custody for ICE to pick them up. The ACLU, which with the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Los Angeles-based law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher has filed the suit for Brown, has contended that the agreement violates basic policing principles that will sweep up citizens like Brown and expose them to unjust and lengthy detentions.

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, accuses Richard Ramsey, the sheriff of Monroe County, of unlawfully arresting and detaining a U.S. citizen.

According to Brown’s lawsuit, when he was booked in the county jail, his fingerprints were sent off to the FBI to verify his criminal records. Those fingerprints reached ICE, which sent the sheriff a detainer request asking his office to hold Brown. Officers told a confused Brown that he was going to be deported to Jamaica—a country where he knew no one—and he protested that he was a U.S. citizen and offered to provide a birth certificate as proof. He had his friend call the jail to tell them they were holding the wrong person, but the jail told the friend to relay the information to ICE, and the officers told Brown they would hold him on retainer regardless of whether he produced a birth certificate. According to the lawsuit, the inmate file maintained by the sheriff would have confirmed that Brown was born in the U.S.

Brown continued to plead with officers to look into his citizenship, but the officers mocked him, according to the lawsuit. He filed a series of written complaints, but a lieutenant told him, “it is not up to us to determine the validity of the ICE hold,” the complaint alleges. When he eventually went to court, the judge ordered the end of his detention for the probation violation, but the sheriff’s office arrested him again and returned him to the jail for the ICE request, according to the complaint.

More than three weeks after he was booked, Brown was transferred to ICE custody and taken to the Krome immigrant detention center in Miami. There, he told the agents he was a citizen, and they agreed to look at his birth certificate. His roommate emailed the document, and ICE finally released him, only after confiscating all the documents they had given him to do with his impending deportation, according to the lawsuit.

Earlier this year, the Los Angeles Times reported the case of a U.S. citizen who was held for more than a year in an ICE facility. The paper’s investigation found that ICE had released more than 1,400 people from custody since 2012 after investigating their citizenship claims.

          A.C.T. Rings In The New Year With Edward Albee's SEASCAPE      Cache   Translate Page      

American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) rings in 2019 with Edward Albee's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Seascape. In her A.C.T. directorial debut, Artistic Director and Tony Award winner Pam MacKinnon-hailed as "the most prolific of directors of Edward Albee's plays" (The Daily Beast)-continues her career-long exploration of American theater's legendary playwright. MacKinnon won the 2013 Tony Award for the Broadway revival of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, starring Tracy Letts and Amy Morton.

In this wildly imaginative and satirical comedy, a newly retired couple picnic and squabble on a beach about their life together when they are interrupted by two human-sized, English-speaking lizards. Are they an evolutionary miracle, or a threat? And which couple is the greater risk to the other? As the two pairs begin to communicate, they come uneasily together, discovering how transitions in life can spark terror and restlessness in any creature of habit. Albee returns to The Geary for the first time in a decade with a sparkling fantasy of love, laughter, and evolution. Edward Albee's Seascape performs at A.C.T.'s Geary Theater (415 Geary St., San Francisco) January 23-February 17, 2019. Press night for Edward Albee's Seascape will be held on Wednesday, January 30, 2019. Single tickets (ranging from $15-$110) are available at the A.C.T. Box Office at 415-749-2228 or online at www.act-sf.org. Ticket prices are subject to change without notice.

"Seascape marks the 11th Edward Albee production I will have directed," says MacKinnon. "Edward gave my artistic life a spine. As a freelance director, he was home-a dear friend, a colleague and mentor, a creator of worlds to play in. I miss him and plan to make him proud with this production."

Adds Jakob Holder, Executive Director of The Edward F. Albee Foundation: "Edward Albee fostered a close collaborative relationship with Pam MacKinnon for more than a decade-from The Play About the Baby in Philadelphia in 2002, to the world premiere of Occupant in New York in 2008, to the most recent revival of A Delicate Balance on Broadway-strengthened by an ever-growing trust in her director's eye and ear. Edward stuck with Pam for her invaluable qualities, chief among them her assiduous attention to detail and her abiding respect for the playwright's intentions."

Under the direction of MacKinnon, Edward Albee's Seascape features Bay Area theater veteran James Carpenter (Heisenberg and A Christmas Carol at A.C.T.; The Resting Place at Magic Theatre) as 'Charlie,' Ellen McLaughlin (originated the role of the Angel in Tony Kushner's Angels in America, appearing in all workshops and productions of the play through its original Broadway run; Ghosts at Berkeley Repertory Theatre) as 'Nancy,' Seann Gallagher (Straight White Men at Marin Theatre Company; The Real Thing at Aurora Theatre Company) as 'Leslie,' and Sarah Nina Hayon (Sweat at A.C.T.; Life Is a Dream at California Shakespeare Theater) as 'Sarah.'

The creative team for Edward Albee's Seascape includes Obie Award and two-time Tony Award winner David Zinn (Scenic and Costume Designer), Isabella Byrd (Lighting Designer), and Brendan Aanes (Sound Designer).

Tips on Getting Cheap Tickets to Turks and Caicos

For some people, the actual planning process is one of the most enjoyable parts of taking a vacation. It's always a challenge to hunt down the best flight deals, so here are a few tips:

1. Search for tickets one seat at a time

If you are searching for tickets for your family, if you really want to save money, try searching by one ticket at a time. This is because most automated systems will show you the highest fare for all the tickets. If you try searching one seat at a time, there may be limited seats on sale.

2. Search at midweek

Airlines tend to launch their sales on Tuesdays and end them on Thursdays, so don’t limit your searches to the weekends.

3. Fly on a holiday

It may seem counterintuitive, but the biggest savings can be found by flying on the actual holiday, such as Thanksgiving or Christmas Day. The exception is if you’re traveling over a three-day weekend—then, everyone is looking to fly on the actual holiday, so that’s the perfect time to try and extend your vacation by a day.

4. Fly on a Tuesday, Wednesday or a Saturday

Why? Because planes are least full on these days of the week, these flights usually have the lowest fares.

5. Monitor Twitter, Facebook and airline emails

Follow your favorite airlines on social media in addition to signing up for discount online travel company emails.

          Ryan Day to make $4.5 million per year on 5-year contract as Ohio State's head coach      Cache   Translate Page      

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State University has announced offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day will be the football program’s 25th head coach.

The announcement came Tuesday afternoon when head coach Urban Meyer announced he would be retiring after the Rose Bowl on January 1.

Day will have a five-year contract that will pay him $4.5 million annually. He will start his head coaching duties on January 2.

Day is in his second season with the Buckeyes and served as the interim head coach for the first three games of the 2018 season while Meyer served a suspension. The team went 3-0.

The New Hampshire native played quarterback at the University of New Hampshire. UCLA head coach Chip Kelly was Day’s offensive coordinator during his collegiate career.

Day began his coaching career in 2002 as the tight ends coach at his alma mater. In 2005, he coached as a graduate assistant under Meyer at the University of Florida.

Additionally, Day coached at Boston College and Temple.

In 2015, he was hired by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015 to be the quarterbacks coach and held the same position with the San Francisco 49ers in 2016.

          The Wolves' smothering bench defense has been a revelation      Cache   Translate Page      
Welcome to the Monday edition of The Cooler, where this is the perfect time of year to check your smoke detector batteries. Let’s get to it: *The Timberwolves looked flat for a half against the Rockets on Monday, trailing last year’s best regular-season team 62-48 at the break (a margin that improved when Andrew Wiggins banked in a long three at the buzzer). The made part of their charge in the third quarter by using what might be their best offensive lineup, which pairs Dario Saric and Karl-Anthony Towns on the court together. Their combination of spacing, rebounding, toughness, post-ups and three-point shooting is a hard cover for any team — and particularly the Rockets, who aren’t nearly as deep as they were last year and lack size beyond Clint Capela. Saric and Towns combined for 10 points in the final 2:14 of the third quarter (three three-pointers and a free throw) to give Minnesota an 86-82 lead at Target Center. But it was perhaps the Wolves’ best defensive lineup that fully took control of the game: the grouping of defensive stalwart Robert Covington with four active reserves — Tyus Jones, Gorgui Dieng, Derrick Rose and Saric. That group held the Rockets scoreless for the first three minutes of the fourth. Towns re-entered for Dieng to give the Wolves a little more offense, but they kept the shutout going for a full 5:17 of the fourth quarter. By then, the Wolves had a double-digit lead that didn’t shrink below 9 for the rest of the game. The Rockets, one of the best offensive teams in the NBA, finished with just nine points in the entire quarter, 29 in the half and 91 in the game. In that fourth quarter shutout stretch, Jones had three steals. Covington’s quick hands forced two jump balls, both of which he won. When that group of Covington and four reserves is on the floor together — they’ve played 70 minutes as a group since the trade — the Wolves are outscoring opponents by 28.6 points per 100 possessions. Substitute Towns for Dieng, and the Wolves are outscoring opponents by 36.8 points per 100 possessions (albeit in an even smaller sample of 22 minutes). Tom Thibodeau talked at length postgame about how the Jimmy Butler trade that brought in Covington and Saric has made the Wolves deeper and given them better fits. The dirty secret of last season is that the Wolves were actually a decent defensive team when their starters were on the court. But their reserves had the worst defensive efficiency in the NBA. They started down the same path this season, but in their last 10 games their bench is No. 8 in the NBA in that category. It’s been pretty much forever since the Wolves had a second unit that could hold leads — let alone grow them. This is much as anything is a reason to think the Wolves might have something sustainable going. *Former Timberwolves guard J.R. Rider was at Monday’s Wolves game and had a pleasant interview with Fox Sports North’s Marney Gellner on TV. In a group setting with reporters, though, Rider wasn’t quite as eager to talk about his current role as a mentor. *In case you missed it, former Wild GM Chuck Fletcher wasn’t out of work for long. He was hired in the same role with the Flyers. Philadelphia has made the playoffs three of the last five seasons but lost in the first round each time. This year, the Flyers sputtered out of the gate and are under .500. *Speaking of being out of work, the Bulls fired former Wolves player and executive Fred Hoiberg after a 5-19 start. Minnesota fans are already clamoring for The Mayor to coach here, but the problem is they’re divided between whether he should lead the Wolves are Gophers. Both teams, of course, already have coaches.

          Smoke-Free Workplace Policies Lead to Lower Blood Pressure      Cache   Translate Page      

Laws prohibiting smoking in bars, restaurants and workplaces have been associated with increased heart health.

Is your workplace smoke free? New research in the Journal of the American Heart Association says that could be good for your heart.

Smoke-free policies have been linked to lower systolic (top number) blood pressure readings among non-smokers, according to AHA researchers.

“We found that nonsmoking adults in the study who lived in areas with smoke-free laws in restaurants, bars or workplaces had lower systolic blood pressure by the end of the follow-up period compared to those who lived in areas without smoke-free laws,” said Stephanie Mayne, Ph.D., study lead author and research scientist at PolicyLab and the Center for Pediatric Clinical Effectiveness at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

The study was conducted while Mayne  was a postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine.

Although laws that prohibit smoking in public places like bars and restaurants have been associated with reduced rates of hospitalization for heart disease, previous studies have not examined changes in blood pressure. In this new analysis, researchers linked data from the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA, 1995-2011) study to state, county and local smoke-free policies in restaurants, bars and workplaces.

“Smoke-free laws were associated with reduced systolic blood pressure, but surprisingly not with reductions in diastolic blood pressure or high blood pressure," Mayne explained. "It’s not entirely certain why this was the case, but it’s possible that we are detecting effects on systolic blood pressure that are below the threshold for hypertension.” 

Higher systolic blood pressure increases the risk of cardiovascular disease even when numbers are below the hypertension threshold; so. the reductions in systolic blood pressure seen in this study suggest a potentially meaningful effect on population-level risk, she added.

While the magnitude of associations was small at the individual level, researchers said the results point to a potential mechanism through which reductions in secondhand smoke due to smoke-free policies may improve population level heart health.

The CARDIA study enrolled 5,115 black and white adults (age 18 to 30) in 1985-86 from four U.S. cities: Birmingham, Alabama, Chicago, Minneapolis and Oakland, California.

Follow-up exams were conducted up to 30 years later. Researchers analyzed data drawn from years 10-25 (1995-2011) to align with the timing of smoke-free policies and excluded participants who didn’t have at least two blood pressure readings during that period.

A total of 2,606 CARDIA participants were used for this study. At each exam, participants living in areas with smoke-free policies affecting public places had lower systolic blood pressure on average than those in areas without smoke-free policies, and the difference increased over time. By year 25, participants in smoke-free areas had systolic blood pressure values on average 1.14 mm Hg to 1.52 mm Hg lower than those in areas without smoke-free environments, depending on the locations covered by the law (restaurants, bars, or workplaces).

Philadelphia-born U.S. Citizen Claims He Was Illegally Detained by ICE

Philadelphia-born U.S. citizen claims he was illegally detained by ICE

A Philadelphia-born U.S. citizen says he was illegally detained by ICE and was threatened with deportation to Jamaica.

According to a lawsuit filed Monday, Brown repeatedly told authorities that he was a U.S. citizen — but he was still held in custody in Monroe County, Florida, and threatened that he would be sent to a Jamaican prison.

Brown — who lives in the Florida Keys and works in the restaurant industry — is suing Monroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay nearly eight months after the incident occurred in April.

Brown turned himself into the Sheriff’s Office for a probation violation when he tested positive for marijuana. Rather than being in jail until the probation violation was resolved, however, he was threatened with being deported.

His information was sent to ICE, who responded with a detainer form — which asks law enforcement to hold detainees for up to 48 hours past their release time so they may be picked up by ICE agents.

“I did not even realize what ICE was at the time, and reading through it I realized it had something to do with immigration,” Brown said in a video released by the American Civil Liberties Union — who is helping represent Brown.

“And at that point, I made a comment of, ‘There must’ve been a mistake.’”

According to the video, ICE confused Brown with someone else who had the same name.

“Mr. Brown was shocked and frightened to learn that he had been flagged for deportation. He immediately began telling nearly every jail employee he encountered that he was a U.S. citizen, born in Philadelphia, and that they should not be holding him for ICE,” the lawsuit says.

Brown had a valid Florida driver’s license, and documentation showed he was a U.S. citizen born in Philadelphia according to the sheriff’s files, the lawsuit claims.

“The guard mocked me, singing the theme song from ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,’ with the reference of ‘West Philadelphia born and raised,’ because I had told him I was from Philadelphia,” Brown said in the video. “So he decides that rather than do anything to help me, he thought it was funny and decided to mock me with that.”

Brown offered to give authorities his birth certificate, and his co-worker and friend called the jail to explain he was a citizen.

“Despite his repeated protests to multiple jail officers, his offer to produce proof, and the jail’s own records, the Sheriff’s Office held Mr. Brown so that ICE could deport him to Jamaica — a country where he has never lived and knows no one,” the lawsuit said.

The lawsuit claims he was held illegally and later transferred to Miami to the Krome immigrant detention center — where people are held before they are deported.

Brown was only released from Krome after his roommate emailed his birth certificate to an ICE officer at the detention center, the lawsuit says.

According to a statement from the ACLU, 17 Florida sheriffs participate in an ICE detention program that pays counties $50 for each person they hold for ICE.

The agreement — called Basic Ordering Agreements or BOA’s — shield counties from liability even when they violate constitutional rights, ACLU said.

The lawsuit argues Ramsay violated Brown’s fourth amendment rights when they held him illegally.

The lawsuit says that another officer told Brown while he was detained that Ramsay previously detained another U.S. citizen for ICE for almost a year before it was determined he was a citizen.

Florida Man Claims Sheriff Held Him for ICE for More Than Two Weeks Despite Proof of U.S. Citizenship
By MOLLY OLMSTEAD
Slate
DEC 04, 201812:24 PM

 A screengrab from an ACLU video about the case. Brown looks into the camera earnestly.

A Florida man born in Philadelphia has filed a lawsuit alleging Immigration and Customs Enforcement detained him for weeks and prepared for his deportation to Jamaica, despite numerous documented complaints that he was a U.S. citizen and had only been to the island nation once on a one-day stop on a cruise years ago.

Peter Sean Brown, who filed the lawsuit Monday, had turned himself in to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office in April for a probation violation after testing positive for marijuana. But rather than being released a few days later or given a court date, according to the lawsuit, he was handed over to ICE and mocked by agents who refused to listen to his protestations. When he was finally released 22 days later, he had lost his job at his job at a Key West, Florida, restaurant.

According to the Washington Post, Monroe County is one of a dozen Florida counties that entered an agreement with ICE in which ICE promised to compensate sheriffs financially for holding “criminal aliens” already in their custody for ICE to pick them up. The ACLU, which with the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Los Angeles-based law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher has filed the suit for Brown, has contended that the agreement violates basic policing principles that will sweep up citizens like Brown and expose them to unjust and lengthy detentions.

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, accuses Richard Ramsey, the sheriff of Monroe County, of unlawfully arresting and detaining a U.S. citizen.

According to Brown’s lawsuit, when he was booked in the county jail, his fingerprints were sent off to the FBI to verify his criminal records. Those fingerprints reached ICE, which sent the sheriff a detainer request asking his office to hold Brown. Officers told a confused Brown that he was going to be deported to Jamaica—a country where he knew no one—and he protested that he was a U.S. citizen and offered to provide a birth certificate as proof. He had his friend call the jail to tell them they were holding the wrong person, but the jail told the friend to relay the information to ICE, and the officers told Brown they would hold him on retainer regardless of whether he produced a birth certificate. According to the lawsuit, the inmate file maintained by the sheriff would have confirmed that Brown was born in the U.S.

Brown continued to plead with officers to look into his citizenship, but the officers mocked him, according to the lawsuit. He filed a series of written complaints, but a lieutenant told him, “it is not up to us to determine the validity of the ICE hold,” the complaint alleges. When he eventually went to court, the judge ordered the end of his detention for the probation violation, but the sheriff’s office arrested him again and returned him to the jail for the ICE request, according to the complaint.

More than three weeks after he was booked, Brown was transferred to ICE custody and taken to the Krome immigrant detention center in Miami. There, he told the agents he was a citizen, and they agreed to look at his birth certificate. His roommate emailed the document, and ICE finally released him, only after confiscating all the documents they had given him to do with his impending deportation, according to the lawsuit.

Earlier this year, the Los Angeles Times reported the case of a U.S. citizen who was held for more than a year in an ICE facility. The paper’s investigation found that ICE had released more than 1,400 people from custody since 2012 after investigating their citizenship claims.

          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)

          The Wolves' smothering bench defense has been a revelation      Cache   Translate Page      
Welcome to the Monday edition of The Cooler, where this is the perfect time of year to check your smoke detector batteries. Let’s get to it: *The Timberwolves looked flat for a half against the Rockets on Monday, trailing last year’s best regular-season team 62-48 at the break (a margin that improved when Andrew Wiggins banked in a long three at the buzzer). The made part of their charge in the third quarter by using what might be their best offensive lineup, which pairs Dario Saric and Karl-Anthony Towns on the court together. Their combination of spacing, rebounding, toughness, post-ups and three-point shooting is a hard cover for any team — and particularly the Rockets, who aren’t nearly as deep as they were last year and lack size beyond Clint Capela. Saric and Towns combined for 10 points in the final 2:14 of the third quarter (three three-pointers and a free throw) to give Minnesota an 86-82 lead at Target Center. But it was perhaps the Wolves’ best defensive lineup that fully took control of the game: the grouping of defensive stalwart Robert Covington with four active reserves — Tyus Jones, Gorgui Dieng, Derrick Rose and Saric. That group held the Rockets scoreless for the first three minutes of the fourth. Towns re-entered for Dieng to give the Wolves a little more offense, but they kept the shutout going for a full 5:17 of the fourth quarter. By then, the Wolves had a double-digit lead that didn’t shrink below 9 for the rest of the game. The Rockets, one of the best offensive teams in the NBA, finished with just nine points in the entire quarter, 29 in the half and 91 in the game. In that fourth quarter shutout stretch, Jones had three steals. Covington’s quick hands forced two jump balls, both of which he won. When that group of Covington and four reserves is on the floor together — they’ve played 70 minutes as a group since the trade — the Wolves are outscoring opponents by 28.6 points per 100 possessions. Substitute Towns for Dieng, and the Wolves are outscoring opponents by 36.8 points per 100 possessions (albeit in an even smaller sample of 22 minutes). Tom Thibodeau talked at length postgame about how the Jimmy Butler trade that brought in Covington and Saric has made the Wolves deeper and given them better fits. The dirty secret of last season is that the Wolves were actually a decent defensive team when their starters were on the court. But their reserves had the worst defensive efficiency in the NBA. They started down the same path this season, but in their last 10 games their bench is No. 8 in the NBA in that category. It’s been pretty much forever since the Wolves had a second unit that could hold leads — let alone grow them. This is much as anything is a reason to think the Wolves might have something sustainable going. *Former Timberwolves guard J.R. Rider was at Monday’s Wolves game and had a pleasant interview with Fox Sports North’s Marney Gellner on TV. In a group setting with reporters, though, Rider wasn’t quite as eager to talk about his current role as a mentor. *In case you missed it, former Wild GM Chuck Fletcher wasn’t out of work for long. He was hired in the same role with the Flyers. Philadelphia has made the playoffs three of the last five seasons but lost in the first round each time. This year, the Flyers sputtered out of the gate and are under .500. *Speaking of being out of work, the Bulls fired former Wolves player and executive Fred Hoiberg after a 5-19 start. Minnesota fans are already clamoring for The Mayor to coach here, but the problem is they’re divided between whether he should lead the Wolves are Gophers. Both teams, of course, already have coaches.

          Natural Gas Distribution Companies Expect Little Change In Natural Gas Use In PA During Winter Heating Season, Slight Increase In Cost      Cache   Translate Page      
On December 4, the Public Utility Commission released 2018 Winter Reliability Overview Reports from the state’s major natural gas distribution companies, along with a related Readiness Report from the Energy Association of Pennsylvania.
The reports provide insights regarding preparations for conditions that may affect service reliability, supply and prices for the winter months, including topics such as system readiness; employee safety/readiness; communications outreach; gas supply and planning; and natural gas demand for electric generators.
Among other things, the reports project little change in natural gas usage across the state compared to last year’s heating season, and a modest increase in home heating costs – driven by increasing energy prices.
According to the report submitted by the Energy Association of Pennsylvania, the average natural gas heating customer may see their total winter season heating costs increase by about $30.

In October, the U.S. Energy Information Administration Winter Fuels Outlook projected a base case forecast increase of 20 percent increase in heating oil cost, 5 percent for natural gas, 3 percent for electricity and a 1 percent reduction for propane.
The winter readiness overviews are posted on the Reliability section of the PUC website, and can be viewed using the following links:
-- Columbia Gas of PA
-- National Fuel Gas
-- PECO Energy
-- Peoples Natural Gas & Peoples Gas
-- Philadelphia Gas Works
-- UGI Utilities/UGI Penn Natural Gas/UGI Central Penn Gas
-- Energy Association of PA
In addition to promoting preparedness by utilities, the Commission also encourages consumers to take steps now to ready themselves for colder temperatures and higher energy demands.
The PUC’s Prepare Now campaign educates consumers about the availability of low-income programs; increases consumer awareness of ways to reduce winter heating costs; and educates consumers on energy conservation.  
The PUC also encourages consumers to check electric and natural gas bills and supplier contracts, and use the PUC’s PAPowerSwitch.com and PAGasSwitch.com websites as resources to shop for services and learn more about conservation and energy efficiency.
For more information, visit the PUC’s Reliability webpage.

The Washington Redskins and head coach Jay Gruden suffered their second devastating injury at the quarterback position during Monday night’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Colt McCoy went down in the first half with a fractured fibula. While the Redskins hope McCoy will be back at some point this season, that seems to be a pipe dream. This comes on the heels of Washington losing starting quarterback Alex Smith for the season back in Week 11. From here on out, Mark Sanchez will likely get the call for a Skins team that remains very much alive in the NFC playoff race. Though, Washington will also have to bring in another free agent. According to Gruden, said free agent will not be Colin Kaepernick. Gruden himself can’t legitimately say there’s a football reason for avoiding Kaepernick. The team worked out the likes of Kellen Clemens prior to signing the above-mentioned Sanchez late last month. Neither quarterback has anywhere near the track record of success that we’ve seen from Kaepernick. Apparently, none

          Jason Witten: Redskins showed 'horrendous judgment' claiming Reuben Foster      Cache   Translate Page      
Given that the Washington Redskins recently claimed Reuben Foster, it was only natural that the topic would come up on the “Monday Night Football” broadcast between Washington and the Philadelphia Eagles. Color commentator Jason Witten held nothing back. Witten dealt with domestic violence in his youth and has remained active in assisting victims. On Monday, he let the Redskins have it for claiming Foster, who was released following a domestic violence allegation. That was expected. And quite frankly, the words don’t read as strong as they sounded. While acknowledging that the investigation is ongoing, Witten was fiery in his message that laying a hand on a woman is absolutely unacceptable. There was absolutely no waffling or mumbling here. His message was clear, direct, and on point.

          Erneuter Gerichtstag und (noch) keine Entscheidung für Mumia Abu-Jamal      Cache   Translate Page      

Seit knapp 37 Jahren sitzt der afroamerikanische Journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal im US Bundesstaat Pennsylvania für einen unbewiesenen Mord in Haft. Aus Anlass seines Haftjahrestages werden am kommenden Sonntag, dem 9. Dezember Kundgebungen und Proteste in zahlreichen Städten und Ländern stattfinden (u.a. in Berlin). Heute war bereits der 8. und vermutlich letzte Gerichtstag einer knapp zwei Jahre andauernden Anhörungsphase um die Wiederaufnahme des Revisionsverfahrens von Mumia. In den 1980ern hatte Bezirksstaatsanwalt Ron Castille sich persönlich dafür eingesetzt, alle zum Tode verurteilten Gefangenen in Philadelphia hinrichten zu lassen. Einige Jahre später wurde er zum Revisionsrichter gewählt und sass Fällen vor, in denen er zuvor als Staatsanwalt involviert war, u.a. dem von Mumia Abu-Jamal. Selbst in der oft befremdlich anmutenden Rechtsauffassung der USA ist so ein Vorgang rechtswidrig. So kassierte der Oberste Gerichtshof der USA 2016 eines seiner vielen Urteile als Revisionsrichter gegen Terrance 'Butter' Williams und ordnete eine Neuverhandlung an. Kurz darauf reichte Mumia Abu-Jamal ebenfalls einen Antrag auf Wiederholung seines Revisionsverfahrens ein, über den seit dem am Revisionskontrollgericht von Philadelphia unter dem Vorsitz von Richter Tucker verhandelt wird.

          Sizzle and Spice at Veda Modern Indian Bistro      Cache   Translate Page      
By Sara Blank

Veda, the two-year-old upscale Indian bistro in Rittenhouse Square (1920 Chestnut St., 267-519-2001), falls seamlessly into step with a slew of Philadelphia-area restaurants that combine predominantly gluten-free cuisine and reputations as safe havens for gluten-free diners.

Goan Shimp Curry (left) and Paneer Palak are two of the many
gluten-free entree options at Veda
With guidance from our knowledgeable server, my dinner companion and I opted for the Tandoori Mirch Murg Tikka, Paneer Palak and Goan Shrimp Curry. We were impressed with each dish, which were fresh-tasting, maintained a fine balance of spices and multiple flavors without being overwhelming, and were filling without being heavy. We ended the meal with Saffron Kheer (rice pudding) and Rasmalai, a dumpling which our server aptly described as similar to a spongy cheesecake. These were excellent complements to the appetizer and entrees - sweet and flavorful without being saccharine. (All but one of the desserts are gluten free.) The craft cocktails - Mumbai Mule and Maharaja Tonic - were original, delicious, and paired with the food perfectly. The warm, comforting vibe of the restaurant was reflective of the meal itself, making it an ideal occasion for a cold-weather night out.

The Mirch Murg Tikka appetizer at Rittenhouse Square's Veda
While the food itself was excellent, I found the experience as a gluten-free guest even more impressive. Generally, I tend to fear dining at family-style restaurants; I feel as though I am walking in with a "high maintenance" stamp across my forehead. In these scenarios, I am often bombarded with well-meaning, if exhausting, questions from non-gluten-free friends like,“What can you eat?” and “Why don’t you pick?” or “Do you think you’ll have enough to eat?” While I am grateful to not be at all a fussy eater, I am discerning in these situations, when I neither want to be difficult nor end up hungry.

I immediately felt at ease when I surveyed Veda's menu, which had clearly-labeled notations for gluten-free dishes. I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of options available, but excited that I was able to choose from so much on the menu.

I told our server that while I am well-versed in dining gluten free, I could not say the same about Indian cuisine. She helped me navigate the menu, describing the flavors and textures of different types of dishes and how they could be altered to suit different spice or heat preferences. I asked whether dishes were naturally gluten free or needed to be altered, and she quickly explained that modifications are rarely needed. This is because Indian food is traditionally cooked in rice flour, rendering most of it gluten free from the get-go. The only variation, she explained, was that while there is gluten present in the kitchen, there is a dedicated gluten-free fryer as well as separate work stations.

All but one of the desserts at Veda - including the Rasmalai (top)
and Saffron Kheer - are gluten free
I enjoyed my experience at Veda because I felt that my dietary restriction had no impact on the quality of my meal. The most significant part about dining at Veda (among other restaurants that have placed similar emphasis on their gluten-free guests) is the normalization and integration throughout the meal. To become complete, I would love to see Veda include gluten-free beers and ciders on the drink menu, add the same gluten-free notations that are on the main menu to the dessert menu, and have the option of gluten-free naan, even if it is made off-premises. Beyond this wish list, though, I found myself extremely impressed by the inclusive experience of dining at Veda.

Anyone who has maintained a gluten-free diet over the last decade knows that among chefs and servers, familiarity of the diet ranges from nonexistent to vague awareness to intrigued curiosity to general accommodation to adamant necessity. Veda is a fine example of a restaurant at the positive end of the spectrum - one that other restaurants should look to as a model.

          American Minute for December 5th      Cache   Translate Page      
When Evangelist George Whitefield began preaching the Great Awakening Revival in Philadelphia in 1739, he inspired the idea that the city should have a school for Blacks and poor orphans. A short-lived Charity School was formed, but it struggled for lack of funds. It was purchased by Ben Franklin in 1749 who expanded it into a secondary school for boys called the Academy of Philadelphia, opening in 1751. In 1754, it expanded again as the College of Philadelphia, later being renamed the University of Pennsylvania. 21 members of the Continental Congress graduated from there. 9 of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were either trustees or alumni from there. A statue of Evangelist George Whitefield is located in University of Pennsylvania's Dormitory Quadrangle. A student at the College of Philadelphia was Hugh Williamson, born DECEMBER 5, 1735. He was in the college's first class to graduate, May 17, 1757. Five days later, his father died. While Williamson had been a student, he instructed younger students at the Academy of Philadelphia in English and Latin. Another person who taught at the Academy of Philadelphia was Charles Thomson, who became the Secretary of Congress, signed the Declaration, designed the Great Seal of the United States, and signed Congress' authorization for Robert Aitken to print the Bible. Upon retiring from Congress, Charles Thomson spent 19 years compiling the "Thomson Bible" (printed in 1808), which contained the first American translation of the Greek Septuagint. Hugh Williamson, at age 24, decided to go into the ministry as a Presbyterian preacher. John Neal recorded of Hugh Williamson in the Trinity College Historical Society Papers (NY: AMS Press, 1915): "In 1759 he went to Connecticut, where he pursued his theological studies and was licensed to preach. After returning from Connecticut, he was admitted to membership in the Presbytery of Philadelphia (the oldest in America) ... (and there) preached nearly two years." Hugh Williamson visited and prayed for the sick, and gave sermons, until a chronic chest weakness convinced him he had to pursue a career that did not involve public speaking. He was also disaffected by the theological debates that grew out of the Great Awakening Revival--between the "Old Lights" and the "New Lights", between the church leaders who were rigid and orthodox in their teachings, and the younger "New Lights" who were zealous and evangelical. In 1760, Williamson joined the faculty at his alma mater, the College of Philadelphia, where he was professor of mathematics. After four years, Williamson traveled to Europe to study medicine. He received a degree from the prestigious University of Utrecht in the Netherlands. After graduation, Dr. Hugh Williamson practiced medicine in Philadelphia. In 1773, Williamson sailed for England to raise funds for Newark Academy, but stopped along the way in Boston, where he witnessed the Boston Tea Party. Upon reaching London, the Privy Council summoned him to testify on the rebellious actions in America. When the Privy Council began to discuss how to punish Boston for the Tea Party, Dr. Hugh Williamson warned them that continuing their high taxes would provoke the colonies into rebellion. He argued further that Americans should be entitled to full rights as Englishmen. An American statesman in London who heard Williamson's patriotic answers to the Privy Council was Ben Franklin--founder of the school Williamson graduated from and taught at. Returning to America in 1777, Dr. Hugh Williamson distinguished himself during the Revolutionary War as a Surgeon General caring for wounded North Carolina troops. In 1780, Dr. Williamson was attached to the command of Brigadier General Isaac Gregory. General Isaac Gregory adopted the tactics of South Carolina's Francis Marion, nicknamed "Swamp Fox"--who would launch surprise attacks on British forces then retreat into inhospitable lands. General Gregory stationed his troops in the Great Dismal Swamp--over 100,000 acres of dangerous wetlands between southeast Virginia and North Carolina Dr. Williamson's insistence on sanitation, diet and preventive medicine kept the troops virtually disease free during their six months there. After the War, in 1782, North Carolina elected Dr. Williamson as a representative to Congress. North Carolina's 1776 Constitution that was in effect at the time stated in ARTICLE 32: "That no person, who shall deny the being of God or the truth of t he Protestant religion, or the Divine authority either of the Old or New Testaments, or who shall hold religious principles incompatible with the freedom and safety of the State, shall be capable of holding any office or place of trust or profit in the civil department within this State." ("Protestant" was changed to "Christian" in 1835, then changed in 1868 to belief in "Almighty God.") While in Congress, Dr. Williamson helped write the Northwest Territory laws. He was part of the committee that proposed a clause, though it was later struck, for: "... reserving the central section of every township for the maintenance of public schools and the section immediately to the northward for the support of religion." The final version of the Northwest Ordinance, July 13, 1787, included: "Sec. 13. And, for extending the fundamental principles of civil and religious liberty, which form the basis whereon these republics, their laws and constitutions are erected ..." "Art. 1. No person, demeaning himself in a peaceable and orderly manner, shall ever be molested on account of his mode of worship or religious sentiments, in the said territory ..." "Art. 3. Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged. The utmost good faith shall always be observed towards the Indians; their lands and property shall never be taken from them without their consent ..." "Art. 6. There shall be neither slavery nor involuntary servitude in the said territory." From May 25 to September 17, 1787, Dr. Hugh Williamson was a delegate to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia where he helped write the U.S. Constitution, lodging at the same residence as James Madison and Alexander Hamilton. Williamson signed the Constitution, then helped convinced North Carolina to ratify it. Thomas Jefferson related of Dr. Williamson's reputation at the Constitutional Convention: "He was a useful member, of an acute mind, attentive to business, and of an high degree of erudition." Dr. Hugh Williamson later became wealthy through investments and land speculations, and wrote extensively for medical and literary societies, winning international acclaim. He participated with Ben Franklin in conducting electrical experiments. In 1811, Dr. Hugh Williamson wrote a respected book, Observations of the Climate in Different Parts of America, in which he refuted "higher criticism" of Scripture and gave scientific explanation for the credibility of stories in the Bible, such as Noah's flood and the events of Moses' exodus. Dr. Hugh Williamson served as one of the original trustees of the University of North Carolina. Dying May 22, 1819, Dr. Hugh Williamson is buried at Trinity Church, in New York City. In addition to Hugh Williamson, other pastors served in America's government: Rev. John Witherspoon (1723-1794) was a Scottish Presbyterian pastor and President of Princeton who was a delegate to the Continental Congress where he signed the Declaration of Independence. Rev. John Peter Muhlenberg (1746-1807) was a Lutheran pastor in Virginia who became a major general during the Revolutionary War, a U.S. Congressman and a U.S. Senator. Rev. Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg (1750-1801) was a Lutheran pastor in New York who was elected a U.S. Congressman and was the First Speaker of the House, signing the Bill of Rights. Rev. Abiel Foster (1735-1806) served as pastor in Canterbury, New Hampshire, a delegate to the Continental Congress, the New Hampshire Legislature and a U.S. Congressman. Rev. Benjamin Contee (1755-1815) was an Episcopal pastor in Maryland who served as an officer in the Revolutionary War, a delegate to the Confederation Congress, and a U.S. Congressman. Rev. Abraham Baldwin (1754-1807) served as a minister at Yale, a chaplain in the Revolutionary War, a delegate from Georgia to the Continental Congress, a U.S. Congressman and a U.S. Senator. He is the founding president of the University of Georgia. Rev. Paine Wingate (1739-1838) was a pastor in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire, who served as a delegate to the Continental Congress, a U.S. Congressman and a U.S. Senator. Rev. Joseph Montgomery (1733-1794) was a Presbyterian pastor in New Castle, Delaware. Married to a sister of Dr. Benjamin Rush, he served as a chaplain in the Revolutionary War with Colonel Smallwood's Maryland Regiment. He was elected a delegate from Pennsylvania to the Continental Congress, a judge, and a representative in the State Assembly. Rev. James Manning (1738-1791) was a Baptist pastor in Rhode Island who was the first President of Brown University where, during the Revolutionary War, he allowed General Rochambeau's French troops to camp on the campus grounds. He was elected a delegate to Congress. John Joachim Zubly (1724-1781) was a Presbyterian pastor in Georgia who was a delegate to the Continental Congress. President Calvin Coolidge stated at the 150th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, Philadelphia, July 5, 1926: "The principles ... which went into the Declaration of Independence ... are found in ... the sermons ... of the early colonial clergy who were earnestly undertaking to instruct their congregations in the great mystery of how to live. They preached equality because they believed in the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. They justified freedom by the text that we are all created in the divine image ... Placing every man on a plane where he acknowledged no superiors, where no one possessed any right to rule over him, he must inevitably choose his own rulers through a system of self-government ..." Coolidge concluded: "In order that they might have freedom to express these thoughts and opportunity to put them into action, whole congregations WITH THEIR PASTORS migrated to the Colonies."

"I use colored because I really think of how the world takes its Crayola crayon to the black girl and colors her whatever they want her to be," DuBois says. "Color her promiscuous, color her too angry, color her too assertive. And many of us will take that same crayon and color each other, because that's what we've been taught to do."

INFORMATION ABOUT THE TRAMMPS
From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Trammps
"The Trammps were an American disco and soul band, who were based in Philadelphia and were one of the first disco bands.

The band's first major success was with their 1972 cover version of "Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart". The first disco track they released was "Love Epidemic" in 1973. However, they are best known for their Grammy winning song, "Disco Inferno", originally released in 1976, becoming a UK pop hit and US R&B hit. After inclusion in the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, the song was re-released in 1978 and became a US pop hit.

History
From early 1970s to the dissolution in the early 1990s
The history of the Trammps grew from the 1960s group The Volcanos, who later became The Moods.[1] With a number of line-up changes by the early 1970s, the band membership included gospel-influenced lead singer Jimmy Ellis, drummer and singer (bass voice) Earl Young, with brothers Stanley and Harold 'Doc' Wade. Members of the Philadelphia recording band MFSB played with the group on records and on tour in the 1970s with singer Robert Upchurch joining later. The group was produced by the Philadelphia team of Ronnie Baker, Norman Harris and Young, all MFSB mainstays who played on the recording sessions and contributed songs.

Their debut chart entry came via an upbeat cover version of the standard "Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart", featuring Young's bass voice, which became a Top 20 US R&B chart hit in 1972.[1][2]

Their first few recordings were released on Buddah Records, including "Hold Back The Night" which was a hit in the UK and on the Billboard R&B chart in 1973, before a re-release saw it climb the U.S. Hot 100 two years later. Several R&B hits followed during a stay with Philadelphia International subsidiary, Golden Fleece (run by Baker-Harris-Young) before they signed to Atlantic Records.

Their single "Disco Inferno" (1976), which was included on the Grammy Award winning Saturday Night Fever: The Original Movie Sound Track in 1977,[3] reached #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in May 1978.[4]

Other major hits included "Hold Back the Night" (1975) (UK #5[5]) and "That's Where the Happy People Go" (1976). In late 1977, the Trammps released the song "The Night the Lights Went Out" to commemorate the electrical blackout that affected New York City on July 13-14, 1977.

Their signature song "Disco Inferno" has been covered by Tina Turner and Cyndi Lauper. In addition, Graham Parker covered "Hold Back The Night" on "The Pink Parker EP" in 1977, and reached #20 in the UK Singles Chart,[6] and Top 60 in the US."....

INFORMATION ABOUT CLARA WARD & THE CLARA WARD SINGERS
From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clara_Ward
"Clara Mae Ward[1] (April 21, 1924 – January 16, 1973)[4][5] was an American gospel artist who achieved great artistic and commercial success during the 1940s and 1950s, as leader of The Famous Ward Singers. A gifted singer and arranger, Ward adopted the lead-switching style, previously used primarily by male gospel quartets, creating opportunities for spontaneous improvisation and vamping by each member of the group, while giving virtuoso singers such as Marion Williams the opportunity to perform the lead vocal in songs such as "Surely, God Is Able" (among the first million-selling gospel hits), "How I Got Over" and "Packin' Up".

[...]

In 1963, Clara Ward was the second gospel singer to sing gospel songs on Broadway in Langston Hughes' play Tambourines To Glory(The first being her former group members, which were known as the Stars of Faith, which starred Langston Hughes in the first Gospel stage play and first play that featured an all black cast to be produced on Broadway, The Black Nativity.). She was also the play's musical director.

1953–1972: The Clara Ward Singers
Ward was the first gospel singer to sing with a 100-piece symphony orchestra in the 1960s. The Clara Ward Singers recorded an album together on the Verve label, V-5019, The Heart, The Faith, The Soul of Clara Ward, and the Ward Singers performed their music live in Philadelphia with the city's Symphony and the Golden Voices Ensemble. Ward sang backup for pop artists with her sister Willa's background group, most notably on Dee Dee Sharp's hit, "Mashed Potato Time", which reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1962. In 1969, Ward recorded an album for Capitol Records, Soul and Inspiration, consisting of pop songs from Broadway plays, Hollywood movies….

[...]

The Clara Ward Singers toured in Australia, Japan, Europe, Indonesia, and Thailand during the late-1960s through the early-1970s. They had a one-day TV special in London, England. They were in constant demand on American television programs and appeared on The Mike Douglas Show over a dozen times. They appeared on Oral Roberts' Country Roads TV special, later released as a soundtrack album. Clara continued to perform at her mother's church, the Miracle Temple of Faith for All People in Los Angeles, California, as well as at Victory Baptist Church. Her mother, Gertrude Ward, also had a popular religious radio program in the Los Angeles market.

[...]

In 1977, Ward was honored posthumously at the Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York City and her surviving sister, Willa, accepted the award in her honor. In July 1998, in recognition of her status, the United States Postal Service issued a 32-cent stamp with her image. The stamp can still be purchased with a CD and other gospel singers' stamps online.[7] Ward's beautiful alto (with a distinctly nasal tone) in gospel songs and the Methodist hymns of the 18th century continues to delight music lovers.[citation needed] She had a marked influence on later singers, such as her protegee Aretha Franklin, who adopted her moan for secular songs and who saluted Ward in Amazing Grace, the gospel album she made with James Cleveland in the early 1970s.

LYRICS- HOLD BACK THE TEARS*
(Clara Ward)

Chorus

Children hold
[hold back, hold back the tears]

Oh yeah, and hold
[Hold back the tears]

Oh, hold
[Hold back, hold back the tears]
My God knows
[God knows how much you can bear]
Look to the heavens
[Look to the heavenly hills]
Yeah, and hold
[Hold back the tears]

Verse #1
I wandered when walking home one day
[Hallelujah]
I let Satan have his way
[Hallelujah]
I laid all night in the arms of sin
[humming]
till five and the misery ends
[Oooh! Ahh!]
Well, I looked like justice day
{Group hums or continues with similar refrain after soloist’s line until the end of verse]
I didn’t have a friend to pray
I fell on my knees crying “Lord”, oh
Hold back the tears

Chorus
Well, well hold
[Hold back, hold back the tears]
etc.

Verse #2
My sins became tears of love
[Hallelujah]
Washed my skin as white as snow
[Hallelujah]
I readied my feet on the Jericho road
[group hums or continues with similar refrain after soloist’s line until the end of this verse]
And I’ll never turn back no more
Oh! He heard my pleas and led me out
And now I know how to sing and shout
I’ll tell the story here and at the end
And I’ll hold back the tears

Chorus

          Capitã Marvel | Novo trailer introduz Krees, Skrulls e motivações da heroína      Cache   Translate Page      

Durante o intervalo da partida de futebol americano entre Philadelphia Eagles e Washington Redskins, a Marvel mostrou o novo trailer de seu próximo grande filme: Capitã Marvel. No vídeo, a heroína que dá nome à produção tem detalhadas algumas de suas motivações, além de introduzir as raças alienígenas dos Krees e dos Skrulls, em guerra entre si e bastante famosas nos quadrinhos.

O filme será uma “prequência”, ou seja, seu enredo será ambientado antes dos eventos da primeira parte de Vingadores: Guerra Infinita, e serve como introdução à heroína, que deve ter papel de protagonista em na segunda parte da saga dos maiores heróis da Terra contra o titã louco Thanos. Capitã Marvel tem estreia prevista para 8 de março de 2019 e traz Brie Larson no papel principal, além de Samuel L. Jackson repetindo a sua atuação como Nick Fury, embora “rejuvenescido” com CGI, já que o filme se ambienta no passado. Também voltam a reprisar seus papéis os atores Lee Pace e Clark Gregg, respectivamente, Ronan, o Acusador e o Agente Coulson.

Nos quadrinhos, as origens da heroína remontam desde “Marvel Super Heroes 12”, de 1967. Aqui, A personagem foi originalmente introduzida pelo falecido Stan Lee como um homem da raça Kree chamado “Mar-Vell”, que foi enviado à Terra para avaliar seu potencial de risco na eterna guerra de sua raça contra os Skrulls. Mar-Vell assumiu a identidade de Walter Lawson, da Força Aérea Americana, onde trabalha junto de Carol Danvers. Durante um ataque, Lawson perde a vida, mas seus poderes se unem a Danvers, dando origem à heroína que veremos nas telonas em alguns meses.

          No Charges for Philadelphia Officer Involved in Deadly Police Shooting      Cache   Translate Page      
No charges will be filed against a police officer who shot and killed a man in Philadelphia's Tacony neighborhood over the summer. Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro announced Tuesday that officer Richard Nicoletti will not be charged in the fatal shooting of Jeffrey Dennis, 36. "My Office conducted a thorough four-month review of this case, interviewing witnesses, examining video footage, and analyzing all available evidence," Shapiro said. "We applied the facts to Pennsylvania law, and accordingly, no criminal charges against Richard Nicoletti will be filed by my Office." The officers were preparing to execute a search warrant at the home and were conducting surveillance when they spotted a 2010 Toyota Camry driven by Dennis. Investigators say they identified the vehicle as being involved with prior drug activity at the home they were preparing to search. Surveillance video shows Nicoletti and the other officers using their unmarked police vehicles to box the Toyota Camry in. The officers then left their vehicles and approached the Camry. Police say Dennis failed to listen to their commands to shut the engine off and began striking the police vehicles. One of the officers then shattered the driver's side window and Dennis continued to try and escape, investigators said. Police say one of the officers was struck by Dennis' vehicle. Nicoletti, who was near the driver's door of the Camry, then fired three shots, striking Dennis in the head and left arm. A medic arrived at the scene and Dennis was pronounced dead. Three of the responding officers suffered minor injuries during the incident. {{file|t=yRdk_1543993967}}

          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?

Imagine you’re standing in front of the Pennsylvania State Capitol building around the time of its dedication on Oct. 4, 1906. Close your eyes and envision you’re looking skyward at what was considered to be the tallest structure between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. The capitol building held that record for 80 years. That must have been quite a sight to behold. As a life-long Pennsylvania resident, I’m sorry to note I had only seen my state’s capitol building from a distance until earlier this year on a sunny late September day. As the traffic whizzed by me, I took a moment to admire the dome from the sidewalk in front of the complex, I realized I had no idea what entrance to use.

Gideon Levy, in Israel's Ha'aretz newspaper, calls out American media's cowardice. He highlights the double standard in which Palestinians can only be villainized, but Israel can only be defended, and the misuse of the term "anti-Semitism." How is it that an Israeli newspaper can publish this, but in the US, CNN is required to fire Marc Lamont Hill? Marc Lamont Hill is an American writer and lecturer in communications at Temple University in Philadelphia, and also an analyst with CNN. In a speech last week at a United Nations conference he called for "international action that will give us what justice requires and that is a free Palestine from the river to the sea." In a matter of hours, the skies collapsed into well-orchestrated hysteria. Seth Mandel, editor of the Washington Examiner, accused Hill of having called for Jewish genocide; Ben Shapiro, an analyst on Fox News, called it an anti-Semitic speech; Consul Dani Dayan tweeted that Hill's remarks were like a "swastika painted...
          Marc Lamont Hill's call for justice - a free Palestine 'from river to sea' - has consequences      Cache   Translate Page      
I confess I had never heard of Marc Lamont Hill until CNN fired him for his November 28 speech at the United Nations on the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People before the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People (CEIRPP) If truth be told, I had not heard of CEIRPP either. It was established by UN Resolution 3376 in 1975 to formulate a program to enable the Palestinian people to exercise (1) their inalienable right to self-determination, national independence and sovereignty, and (2) the right of Palestine refugees to return. So the long knives must have been out for Professor Hill (his day job is at Temple University in Philadelphia) when he agreed to fly back from a trip to Palestine and address CEIRPP in the first place, since Israel and the American Jewish establishment must consider the very existence of CEIRPP and its raison d'être to be an existential challenge to the Jewish State.

A new MP3 sermon from Pompton Plains Reformed Bible Church is now available on SermonAudio.com with the following details:

Title: Wonderful Counselor
Subtitle: And He Will Be Called
Speaker: Richard J. Kuiken
Broadcaster: Pompton Plains Reformed Bible Church
Event: Sunday Service
Date: 12/2/2018
Bible: Isaiah 9:1-7
Length: 26 min.

Overview: The late Dr. Ed Young of Westminster Seminary in Philadelphia, PA, has written that the four Messianic titles mentioned in Isaiah 9-6 -are a healing balm in which the Christian soul will find comfort and strength throughout time and eternity-. And because that it true, along with the Prophet Isaiah of old, even in the midst of our darkest days and seemingly most hopeless times of our entire lives we as God's people ought to rejoice in and be comforted by the fact that this promised Savior and coming King, Jesus, our Messiah, would be called Wonderful Counselor-
          PAX Unplugged 2018      Cache   Translate Page      

PAX Unplugged is a large convention that took place in Philadelphia just a few days ago. These are the shows that the big Acquisitions, Inc. events are held.

This year's PAX was a bit special, as Chris Perkins has stepped down from the role of DM for Acq Inc. and Jeremy Crawford, the man in charge of D&D rules, took over.

Worth It?

I don't go out much and I like it that way. A lot of people I've met online were going, though, and something told me that I needed to go to PAX Unplugged, even if it made me uncomfortable.

I went, and I'm glad I did! It was exhausting for sure, but worthwhile. For me, the key to enjoying the con was to not sign up for anything. D&D games at a con with people you don't know are hit and miss. One annoying person will ruin a 4 hour session for me.

Fellow Traveler: I had to take two trains to get from New York to Philly. While waiting at Penn Station, some guy started telling me about how he was going to meet a woman who had just gotten divorced. Is it a date? No, he said. Just a friendly visit.

I tried to peel back the layers some more, but my train arrived and there was a mad dash to get in line.

It Begins

I got to Philly and met the first of many people: Garrett (he runs the Rappan Athuk campaign that I play in), met me at the Marriot that directly connects to the convention center where PAX was held.

We were staying in a large suite with a pair of huge beds, a massive TV, and plenty of furniture. It was so weird to meet him in person, in a "is this real?" kind of way.

Meeting the Waffle Crew

He told me he'd met the waffle crew, the heroes of Dice, Camera, Action, and he urged me to go and say hello. I was already feeling like I was in an out of body experience. Once I saw them, I felt like a ghost or something.

The entire group was right there at their table. I'd caught them right as they were wrapping up their merch table stuff, so there was no line at all. There was only one other person there. Know who it was? Kikka! She plays in my Secrets of Castle Greyhawk campaign.

The whole thing was so surreal that I felt like I was running on auto-pilot. I talked briefly with each member of the waffle crew. I made sure to tell Nate that him counterspelling Manshoon's power word: kill was epic and I talked with Jared about how the group seemed to be able to fill a 2 hour session even if Chris said nothing. Jared told me, "That's what we're going to try to do tonight."

Then I turned to Kikka and whispered these immortal words: "Sword of the Magus". Her character, Lytria, wields the mighty Sword of the Magus in Secrets of Castle Greyhawk. It's an item from the choose your own adventure book that got me into D&D in the first place - Mountain of Mirrors by Rose Estes.

As I walked away, I told Garrett that the con was already worth it. The crew was so nice to me. Anna told me that they had gone over my blog many times in the early days of DCA. I also got to thank Holly and Anna for appearing on Waffle Talk, my show that discusses Dice, Camera, Action.

Meeting Friends

So then, we're walking around, and we peer in a large room with tables. Who's in there playing a game? Grant Ellis, Kelli Butler, and WebDM Pruitt! I said hello to each. Grant gave me a firm handshake, Kelli (we both play in Mordenkainen's Path of the Planes) and I shared an E.T. finger touch, and Pruitt gave me a mighty hug.

We leave that room and I'm sort of reeling from the whole thing. I was in a place full of people who were happy to see me. It was far beyond what I expected. This was nothing like the cons I went to years ago, which were hot, sweaty, intense affairs full of dudes arguing about rules. Cons have completely changed, apparently.

Then I ran into Travis Boles, who is sort of like the man behind the curtain for WebDM. He gave me the most powerful hug I'd ever received in my life.

Character-Making Panel

We decided to go to a panel. People had warned me that PAX was all about waiting in lines. I was sort of dreading that aspect of it. There was a line, but it was well-managed and there was plenty of seating when we got in.

This particular panel was run by Ruty Rutenberg and Satine Phoenix. It was mostly about making interesting characters. I was most struck by how nice everyone was. From the crowd to the panelists, there was nothing but positivity in this hall.

The Legend of Ed

After that, we decided to go to 13, which is the Marriot restaurant. This was a pretty swanky little place.

Our waiter was a man named Ed. Ed is one of the greatest people in the multiverse. Why, you ask?
  • He delivered our appetizers in about 90 seconds.
  • He made sure people checked on us every two seconds.
  • He told us about places near the hotel that have good food.
  • He told us when they were open.
  • He WROTE US A LIST of those places and what to get from them!
  • He handed me the best burger I had in all of 2018.
This guy was amazing. I quietly swore that I would return to this restaurant on the following day. How could I not? We even discussed buying Ed his favorite food - it was pumpkin cheesecake with cream on it or something. Little did I know that 13 had dark secrets...

Brownest of the Brown Liquors: I don't drink, but it's a special night, so I decided that I'd have one if Garrett had one. And so, he ordered bourbon.

I'm just not an alcohol guy. It was painful beyond belief. Worse, this one little cup cost $18! Why?

Dice, Camera, Action Live

After that was the big event for me at PAX - the Dice, Camera, Action live show. Chris Perkins wasn't at this con. Satine Phoenix stepped in to sort of fill his role.

I met up with another online friend: Andy Hatton, from the Laughing Dragon Inn. Andy is like... your best friend. Everyone's best friend. He's just a great dude and a very good DM!

This show was pure roleplaying. All four characters revealed some secrets and we learned some backstory. There were quite a few funny moments.

Meeting More Friends: After it ended, I was approached by a few people who had recognized me from Waffle Talk and Dungeon Academy! I was a bit bowled over. There was one guy that I wish I could have talked to more, but there was a lot going on and he disappeared before I could continue to pick his brain.

At the same time, I met two of my Dungeon Academy players in real life. Dungeon Academy is full of players who more or less learned D&D through Dice, Camera, Action, so this was a very fitting venue to meet in real life.

It amuses me endlessly to pretend that I am the teacher and they are the students, and that this is some kind of field trip. They were great, of course, and it was very surreal. In retrospect, I think we really should have gamed together at some point during the convention.

Slumber Party: After that we headed back to the suite and met with our other roomies, Lindy and her husband! We chatted into the wee hours of the morning. I hadn't slept in a very long time and I passed out somewhere in there.

Bacon Questions: The next morning, we ordered some room service, which was phenomenal. I eventually realized that Garrett only ate half of each slice of bacon. There were four slices, and he left four halves. Why wouldn't he just eat two full slices?

I started to suspect that he was harboring some sort of inner demon. I looked at him in a new light.

Sweet, Sweet Silence: Being an extreme introvert, I stayed in the hotel for a few hours while he ventured forth into PAX. I love hotel rooms and I love the QUIET. I gleefully had both to myself for a few hours.

Then I got word that Garrett had found Lysa Chen! Lysa has written some great Adventurers League scenarios and she is one of the authors of Dungeons of the Mad Mage! She'd also played in a few of my online games.

At the same time, Shauna arrived at the hotel. We headed over to an RPG free play room and boom, I got to play live D&D with Lysa, Garrett, and Shauna.

Beyond the Wall

We played a game called Beyond the Wall, which has this whole shared creation element to it. There are a lot of die rolls involved on random charts (I love random charts). Lysa and I kept rolling the same numbers, so we decided that our characters were identical twins.

The story we ended up with is that we were skunk people living in a village named Stinkton that had been attacked by badgers. Both Lysa and I were secretly and separately carrying on an affair with a badger named Dug Diggity.

Lysa had cards from her upcoming show on the D&D channel called Tales From the Mists. I got one and it is in my wallet right now.

Dice, Camera, Action Q & A


Then came the Dice, Camera, Action Q & A. In the crowd, I could see another of my Dungeon Academy players in costume. It was Aya, dressed as Lilia (she's wearing the red hat)!

The Q&A was fun. I don't remember too much from it, other than the fact that there were a lot of questions about "what if you all die". Both Scotty and Brianne asked questions, which was pretty great.

After that, I met Scotty and Dylan from my Dragon Heist game, and Aya from Dungeon Academy, along with two of Aya's friends.

The Betrayal

Here is where I made my mistake. We all went out to eat. Where? 13.

Was Ed at 13? Yes. Was he our waiter? No!

Our waiter was rude and stand-offish. I didn't like the way he talked to us at all. It wasn't until after we left that I learned that HE BAD-MOUTHED ED.

Apparently it went like this. Garrett said, "Ed says that the philly cheese steak here is the best in the city."

Waiter: "Ed only works, goes home, and comes back to work. Do you really believe what Ed has to say?"

Why on Earth would you ever do that? I worked in retail/customer service for a long time, and I am BAFFLED. Bash your co-worker in front of a customer?

Shiftspice


There's been this running gag in my games about Shiftspice. Shiftspice is a magic item from the Planescape: Torment computer game. I was excited to put it in my game, and was dismayed when the group thought it came in little packets, like ketchup at McDonald's.

So at this convention, Scotty actually made and gave out shiftspice packets! And he gave me shiftspice in a corked bottle, as it was meant to be presented. It was amazing.

Transgender Representation in RPGs Panel 

Then we hit up another panel about Trans representation in games. Shauna and Kikka were on this panel. Grant Ellis was running it.

From what I understand, some of the panelists weren't expecting too many people to show up. The room was pretty packed. There were tons of people in attendance.

I wanted to go to this panel for a few reasons, one of which being that I don't know how to handle trans topics in my games. I'm always afraid I might accidentally do something offensive.

One thing that got mentioned a lot is the helpfulness of this document: The Trans Language Primer.

Esper Genesis


After that, fate stepped in. Somehow I got invited to play in a special game of Esper Genesis, a sci-fi D&D game. Who ran it? DMs Guild Adept Rich Lescouflair, who created the game! The players:
  • Lysa Chen
  • Nerdarchy Dave
  • WebDM Jim
  • Shauna
  • Garrett
  • Me
I think Lysa is the one who put this all together. I have been on Nerdarchy a few times and I was so pleased to get to sit next to him and roll some dice together in real life. WebDM Jim is just a great dude.

We had a bit of time to look at our pregens and check out the Esper Genesis hardcover. What I really like about Esper Genesis is that it is similar enough to 5e that it's very easy to learn. Many of the powers are just re-skinned spells.

Also, the art that I saw was really good. My character was a "dendus". Check it out:


Our Mission: In the game, we were mercenaries. We were hired to deliver some encrypted data to a woman in a night club. We were at a space port where a new, huge ship had arrived.

We took one look at the ship and wanted to steal it, but we stuck to our assigned mission. I was an engineer and Lysa was "A captain, not THE captain". She was a cat-person. I suggested that she was really a "Cat-pin", and the groans at the table were mighty indeed.

The Cat-pin and I did not get along. Our rivalry culminated in a dance-off at the night club. We both rolled really bad, so the real losers of the dance-off were everyone who had to witness it.

It turns out that we'd been tricked. The device holding the data did something else entirely. We ended up in a shoot-out with a gang of villains.

We chased them on hoverbikes. Dave sped up to the last bad guy and suplexed him off the bike. Dave rolled a natural 20!

There was more content to play through, but it was late, so we stopped there. It was a lot of fun!

Back in the suite, I told Shauna and Garrett about how I'd watched every Phantasm movie over the last week and how weird/good/bad they were. I passed out somewhere in there.

Going Home

The third day for me was all about getting home. I said farewell to my new friends and carefully made my way to the train station. The trip went fine until the final leg.

As we approached my stop, the conductor told me that only the last few car doors would open. I'd need to make my way through most of the train to exit.

I dutifully got my stuff together and awaited my announcement. It came. I got up. An elderly couple in front of me also got up. They blocked my path. They got their luggage off of the overhead rack. They slowly made their way to the back of the first of many cars. The door was closed. The lady didn't know how to slide it open. She had a lengthy discussion with a passenger about it.

We weren't even close to the back of the train. We missed our stop. I couldn't believe it. I was flabbergasted.

We got off at the next stop and were given a voucher. We had to take another train BACK to get home. We had to wait an hour.

So we sat there in this train station, me and the old couple. I told them about PAX. The guy told me he went to "trapper conventions". I didn't ask about different types of bear traps, but I wanted to.

We got on our train and, this time, we didn't miss our stop.

I got home!

Final Thoughts

I'm so glad I got to go to PAX. Next time, I think I'll try to plan some more games with friends, although I did really enjoy being free to do whatever I wanted (or nothing at all).

Not a Lot of Free Stuff: I expected to get more free stuff than I did. I got almost nothing and I bought almost nothing. A lot of the dealer's room was full of board and card games, which I really have no interest in.

Cost: It actually wasn't that expensive at all. A 3-day pass cost $60. The trains cost a bit more. The hotel would have been expensive if not for sharing a room with Garrett. Once you're in the Con, there's not much to pay for. You just play games!

If there's a PAX near you, you definitely might want to consider going. It was a lot of fun.
          Hezonja, Antetokounmpo y el segundo «step over» más famoso de la historia      Cache   Translate Page      
En las finales de la NBA de 2001, entre los Philadelphia 76ers y Los Angeles Lakers, se produjo una de las jugadas más legendarias que se recuerdan en la historia del baloncesto: una canasta de Allen Iverson en el primer partido de aquella final en la que dejó sentado a Tyronne Lue, sobre el que acabó pasando por encima para regresar a su cancha. #Throwback to when Allen Iverson did this to Tyronn Lue 🏀 @FballCinema #ncaa pic.twitter.com/w63RUj9lRc— Sports Highlights (@OurSportHistory) 1 de diciembre de 2018Aquel «step over» (pasar por encima, literalmente), acompañado de su estratosférica actuación (48 puntos), significó el momento más álgido en la carrera de Iverson. Ahora, casi 17 años después, muchos han querido ver un gesto parecido en el que realizó Mario Hezonja sobre Giannis Antetokounmpo durante el Knicks-Bucks. Hezonja logró llevar a buen puerto un contraataque de los Knicks, evitando el tapón de un Antetokounmpo que llegaba por detrás sin frenos. Mario Hezonja stepped over Giannis 😳 pic.twitter.com/OncfwwZ9XJ— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) 1 de diciembre de 2018El griego se fue al suelo tras la canasta del exjugador croata del Barça, y éste reaccionó pasando por encima de la estrella de los Bucks y elevando los brazos al aire para agitar a la grada. A Giannis Antetokounmpo no le sentó bien el gesto del jugador de los Knicks, y así lo hizo saber al término del partido.

Synopsis
Brooke Devereaux has a lot she wants to escape from: a career she never asked for, a future she doesn’t want, and parents who’ve only ever seen her as a business opportunity. But in her desire to experience life, she quickly realizes she’s lacking in one very important skill: how to survive on her own. 
Former soldier Cole Timmons is an expert at running away. Whether it's from his rural hometown, his alcoholic father, or painful memories, Cole doesn’t hesitate to leave. 
Until he encounters an out-of-place woman at a gas station in the middle of nowhere. The wealthy “princess” couldn’t be more different from the country loner, and the pair get off to a rocky, misadventurous start.
But sometimes exteriors are armors meant to deceive. Sometimes what’s beneath reveals more than anyone ever realized. Sometimes, in order to stop running away, a person simply needs to find something to run toward.
****
Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.

Meet the Author
Elizabeth Hayley is actually “Elizabeth” and “Hayley,” two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. They learned a ton about each other through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly. They live with their husbands and kids in a Philadelphia suburb. Thankfully, their children are still too young to read.

Today, FIRE sent a letter to Temple University president Richard M. Englert to remind him of the university’s moral and legal obligations to the First Amendment as a public university in light of the controversy surrounding professor Marc Lamont Hill’s speech last week about Israeli-Palestinian relations. While Temple (which is in FIRE’s hometown of Philadelphia) initially defended Hill’s First Amendment rights, the university’s board chairman has reportedly directed legal counsel to explore options and “remedies,” and stated that members of the administration and board of trustees wanted to “fire him right away.” On Nov. 28, Hill spoke before the United […]

The Art of Rube Goldberg
On view through January 21, 2019
The Art of Rube Goldberg is the first comprehensive retrospective exhibition of Rube Goldberg's work since the Smithsonian's 1970 celebration of the artist. It explores his varied career from his earliest published works and iconic Rube Goldberg machine invention drawings, to his Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoons, and more. Throughout his long career, Rube Goldberg (1883-1970) chronicled almost every salient aspect of modern American life. His work touched on everything from fashion and sports to gender, politics, and international affairs. This exhibition explores the artistry and wit that made Rube Goldberg one of the twentieth century's most celebrated and enduring cartoonists - and a household name. The Art of Rube Goldberg was conceived by Creighton Michael; developed in cooperation with Heirs of Rube Goldberg, LLC, NY, NY; and curated by Max Weintraub. Tour coordinated by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC. Major support provided by Bank of America. Learn more: nmajh.org/rube

Concert Screening: The Ancient Law
Wednesday, December 12
In partnership with the Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival and ld at NMAJH
Details and tickets available at PJFF.org
Renowned Klezmer fiddler Alicia Svigals and silent film pianist Donald Sosin return to NMAJH with an original score they will perform LIVE during a screening of The Ancient Law. One of the hottest tickets at the 68th Berlinale, Ewald André Dupont’s classic German silent film, The Ancient Law, tells the story of Baruch (Ernst Deutsch), the son of a rabbi in Galicia during the 1860s who catches the acting bug and leaves home against his father’s will to join a traveling theater troupe only to return to his family and life in the shtetl. Made during the mass migration of Eastern European Jews fleeing the Russian Revolution and the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the film’s depiction of 19th century Jewish life in Europe is sympathetic to the Orthodox Jewish culture of Europe’s nascent refugee population while still highlighting the tension between tradition and modernity. Four years after its release, The Ancient Law served as the primary source material for The Jazz Singer (1927). Special thanks: The restoration of this lost masterpiece of German-Jewish cinema was made possible by a collaboration between the Deutsche Kinemathek and ARRI laboratory, together with ZDF and ARTE.

Sara Berman’s Closet, the Museum’s next special exhibition, opens April 5, 2019.

A powerful and intimate exploration of independence, identity, feminism, family, time, immigration, memory, joy, and courage, the art exhibition speaks to the universal pursuit of meaning and beauty, from the monumental to the mundane. Sara Berman’s daughter and grandson, celebrated artist Maira Kalman and curator Alex Kalman, have re-created Sara’s meticulous and quirky closet as an homage to stories everyday belongings represent. The Kalmans, who have been featured at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and inThe New Yorker, are creating an outdoor installation of Sara’s closet on the Museum’s plaza facing Independence Mall, where it puts Sara’s story on par with the surrounding monuments to our country’s founding fathers. This exhibition will feature the Museum’s first-ever public art installation on the Museum’s Kimmel Plaza on the corner of 5th and Market Streets.
Accompanying the installation will be an original companion exhibition inside the Museum in the 5th floor gallery in which the Kalmans blend art, history, and memory to chronicle Sara’s journey from Belarus to Tel Aviv to NYC through original paintings, text, and ephemera.

          Der rätselhafte Fall eines Supertalents       Cache   Translate Page      

Als sich Markelle Fultz nach nur einem Jahr auf dem College bei den Washington Huskies zum NBA-Draft 2017 anmeldete, sagten nicht wenige dem damals 19-Jährigen eine große Karriere voraus. Durchschnittlich 23,2 Punkte, 5,9 Assists und 5,7 Rebounds sprachen für sich und sorgten schließlich dafür, dass ihn die Philadelphia 76ers zum Nummer-1-Pick machten.

Ein Jahr später ist von den großen Vorschusslorbeeren nur noch wenig übrig. Zwar gelang es Fultz im vergangenen Jahr gegen die Milwaukee Bucks, als jüngstem Spieler in der Geschichte der NBA ein Triple-Double zu erzielen, allerdings sorgten Schmerzen im Arm- und Schulterbereich immer wieder dafür, dass der junge Mann nicht aktiv auf dem Parkett mitwirken konnte.

So kam Fultz in seiner Rookie-Saison auf gerade einmal 14 Hauptrundenpartien und auch in dieser Saison fällt er bereits seit Mitte November aus. Nachdem lange Zeit über die mysteriösen Beschwerden des Point Guards gerätselt wurde, konnte ein Spezialist nun offenbar endlich Licht ins Dunkel bringen.

ANZEIGE: Jetzt die neuesten NBA-Fanartikel kaufen - hier geht es zum Shop

Spezialist diagnostiziert Thoracic-Outlet-Syndrom

Wie Raymond Brothers, Agent und Anwalt von Fultz gegenüber Adrian Wojnarowski von ESPN erklärte, leide sein Klient am sogenannten Thoracic-Outlet-Syndrom. Dieses beeinflusse "die Nerven zwischen Nacken und Schulter, was zu einem gestörten Bewegungsablauf führt und daher Markelles Fähigkeiten, einen Basketball zu werfen, massiv limitiert."

Schon lange war Experten eine veränderte Wurfausübung bei Fultz aufgefallen. Noch in seiner College-Zeit zeichnete ihn sein smoother Jumper aus, der seit seinem ersten Auftritt auf der großen Bühne der NBA wie verloren scheint. Aus diesem Grund suchte er vor der Saison - auf Anraten von Joel Embiid - Hilfe bei "Wurfdoktor" Drew Hanlen.

Freiwurf gegen Miami sorgt für Verwirrung

"Er hatte komplett vergessen, wie man wirft", berichtete dieser später, nachdem beide den Sommer über intensiv am Wurf des inzwischen 20-Jährigen gearbeitet hatten. Und zunächst schien es auch tatsächlich so, als würde sich die Arbeit auszahlen. Zu Saisonbeginn versenkte Fultz sogar wieder den ein oder anderen Dreier und erweckte den Eindruck, dass das Selbstvertrauen alter Tage wieder zurückkehren würde.

Doch die soliden Auftritte zum Start waren nur ein kleines Strohfeuer. Beim Sieg gegen die Miami Heat Anfang November sorgte er mit einem merkwürdigen Freiwurf endgültig für Verwirrung. NBA-Experte Alex Kennedy twitterte unmittelbar nach dem Fehlversuch, dass Fultz und Hanlen nicht länger zusammen arbeiten würden. Der Shooting-Coach hatte bereits zuvor angedeutet, dass sein Schützling noch immer nicht fit sei, der Spieler selbst hatte allerdings eine andere Erklärung.

"Ich meine, mir ist der Ball aus der Hand gerutscht, also musste ich tun, was ich tun musste. Aber ich bin nicht wirklich besorgt. Ich arbeite an meinem Spiel. Der Ball ist mir rausgerutscht. Das ist, was passiert ist", sagte Fultz damals nach dem Spiel.

"Dartitis" als Auslöser der Probleme?

Dennoch zog Raymond Brothers seinen Schützling nur wenige Tage danach aus dem Verkehr und schickte ihn in der Folge zu mehr als zehn Spezialisten. Eine Aktion, die bei den Verantwortlichen in Philadelphia für große Verwunderung sorgte. "Aus medizinischer Sicht haben wir nichts gesehen, was ihm nicht erlaubt hätte, zu spielen. Er hat gestern gespielt und er hat auch vor zwei Tagen gespielt", äußerte sich General Manager Elton Brand kurz darauf.

Hanlen hatte bereits im Sommer eine andere Erklärung ins Spiel gebracht. Fultz würde an dem sogenannten "Yips" leiden - eine mentale Blockade die man auch bei Profigolfern oder Dartsspielern ("Dartitis") kennt. Leidet man an diesem Problem, kann man den Ball nicht zum richtigen Zeitpunkt loslassen - oder den Golfschläger nicht durchschwingen bzw. den Darts-Pfeil loslassen. Auch Philly.com hatte unter Bezug auf Quellen im Umfeld von Sixers-Coach Brett Brown von einem mentalen Problem berichtet.

Fultz droht Ausfall von drei bis sechs Wochen

Daraufhin wurde auch über einen Trade spekuliert, was Brothers allerdings umgehend dementierte: "Mein Fokus liegt darauf, Markelle gesund zu bekommen. Ende der Geschichte."

Dementsprechend erleichtert wirkte er nun auch, als endlich eine Diagnose gestellt werden konnte. "Die Leute haben gesagt, dass es ein mentales Problem war. Das ist nicht der Fall. Es ist nicht möglich, dass du der Nummer eins Pick bist und plötzlich nicht mehr in der Lage bist, deinen Arm zum Wurf zu heben. Etwas stimmte nicht und nun wissen wir die Antwort auf das Problem", so Brothers.

Doch auch wenn nun endlich Klarheit in der Angelegenheit zu herrschen scheint, dürften einige Restzweifel bleiben, ob Fultz nach seiner Behandlung bei einem Physiotherapeuten in Los Angeles wieder zu alter College-Stärke zurückfinden kann. Einen endgültigen Beweis dafür kann der Spieler nur selbst auf dem Court liefern.

Bis dahin werden allerdings noch einige Wochen vergehen. Offiziell gaben die 76ers bekannt, dass Fultz auf unbestimmte Zeit fehlen werde, intern geht man jedoch anscheinend von einer Ausfallzeit von mindestens drei bis sechs Wochen aus.

          Comment on Somebody In Atlanta Needs To Get Fired by Ron      Cache   Translate Page      
I totally agree with you Zack that someone should be fired. I believe it should be Dan Quinn. He chose to hire Steve Sarkasian and it hasn't worked. Even the so called defense has been pretty sorry the last two years. One of the worst players on the team was signed to a contract extension several years ago, No. 23 Mr Penalty and worthless as a DB Mr Alford. If Dan Quinn feels like this player is so great then I can see why our team defense is pretty sorry. And then we have a player that we rely on each year and by week 3 or 4 he seems to be done for most of the season if not all of the season and he's perfect for the One Call That's All Commercial since he seems to be injured more than he plays. The ex LSU player and I don't know why I can't think of his name, probably because he is injured so much. The defense plays the first two downs great most of the time but they can't maintain if for one more down. What about all the penalties we have gotten. That shows lack of discipline and that's the gist of what we have right now on the team. Hire the one that just got fired as our HC or OC and see if it doesn't improve but we also have to get rid of the deadbeats and hire some players that can play. Just look at the last two seasons and how our division has improved with the marquee players they have. I don't know what DQ or TD system is for drafting players but it ain't working. How did we let the kid from Tennessee go to N.O. Saints. Now he is killing everyone in the league with his running and passing. How did we miss him? There are others like JJ Watts brother. Look at the receivers on Philadelphia and Denver. How did we miss them. Then we get the one from Alabama and yesterday he is running backwards supposedly trying to make more yardage but ended up losing some. He has a habit of going backward when he runs, the WR should learn from Julio Jones to run straight ahead not backwards. So, the whole team has issues and I don't see any improvements being made anytime soon if DQ or TD stays around. Even SS needs to go. He isn't doing anything to excite our offense.

          A White Silk Dress for a Special Portrait of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton, 1787      Cache   Translate Page      
Susan reporting,

Sitting for a portrait was serious business in 18thc America. Professional artists were few and portraits were expensive, a luxury for only the wealthiest or most prominent of people. Even for them, a portrait was often a once-in-a-lifetime event.

When Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton sat for her portrait in the winter of 1787, she was thirty years old. From a socially prominent New York family, Eliza was the wife of Colonel Alexander Hamilton, an up-and-coming young lawyer and Revolutionary War hero who was already playing an important role in shaping the new country's government. Alexander himself had already sat for several portraits, and now it was Eliza's turn.

The white silk gown that Eliza wears is the first to be recreated by historical mantua-maker and gown designer Samantha McCarty as part of the Fashioning Eliza program for the Museum of the American Revolution, Philadelphia, PA. It's all part of the museum's "Year of Hamilton" celebration that I've previously posted about here.

The white dress is the perfect choice to recreate, too. Eliza would have put a great deal of thought into what she chose to wear for this portrait. She was creating a lasting image of herself, a "selfie" for posterity. Her dress is stylish and appropriate for her status coming from a wealthy family and as Mrs. Alexander Hamilton, with costly imported silk and lace that displayed her husband's success. Her dark hair is frizzled and powdered white in a style made popular by Queen Marie Antoinette of France – a nod not only to French royal fashion, but also to the country that had helped America win its Revolution.

But Eliza pointedly wears only thin black ribbons tied around her wrists and throat instead of jewels or other ornaments. Simplicity in dress – and this dress is without any extra ruffles or fussiness – was praised, and considered patriotic. With Eliza's body shaped by stays (corset), it's easy to overlook the fact that she's pregnant in this portrait, and that she would give birth to the third Hamilton son, James Alexander, in the spring of 1788. Her white silk gown is the color of purity, truth, and virtue, excellent qualities for a woman of the new republic, and for the mother of new citizens as well.

Eliza may also have chosen a white gown for another reason, since this portrait resulted from an unusual act of charity by the Hamiltons. Alexander knew that the American-born portraitist Ralph Earl was imprisoned for debt in the New York City gaol. By the paradoxical laws of the time, the artist wouldn't be released until he'd paid his debts – impossible for him to do as long as he was imprisoned.

Alexander arranged for Earl to be given fresh paints, brushes, and canvas, and he also commissioned this portrait of his wife. Also happy to help the impoverished artist, Eliza sat for Earl in the gaol, her pristine white gown setting her apart from the sordid conditions nearby. Other New York ladies followed her example, and the artist was finally able to pay his debts and resume his career.

There's only one other portrait of Eliza from the years of her marriage, a pastel by James Sharples drawn around 1795. In this, too, she is shown wearing white. The choice of color is probably only a fashionable coincidence, and yet the two white dresses in these portraits stand out in comparison to what was to come. When Alexander died in 1804 of wounds following his fatal duel with Aaron Burr, Eliza immediately began dressing in black for mourning. In the fifty years of her widowhood, she never wore anything else.

A version of this post appeared previously on the website of the Museum of the American Revolution.

          Trump's 'Deport Everyone' Policy Nabs Philadelphia-Born Citizen, But It's OK, He's Black      Cache   Translate Page      


The Trump administration's efforts to deport all the nasty horrible criming foreigners just keeps scoring wins! Along with all the undocumented moms and dads scooped up while dropping the kids off at school (total threats to the nation), the New Cruelty makes the occasional error, like targeting US citizens for deportation, which is quite the regrettable oopsie, but is really just the sort of thing that will happen from time to time. Isn't Making America Great Again worth a little overreach now and then? Still, troublemakers like the American Civil Liberties Union seem to think people have "rights," and now the ACLU is suing a county sheriff's office in Florida for having held a Philadelphia-born US citizen, Peter S. Brown, for three weeks while refusing to even check his repeated offers to prove his citizenship. After all, Immigration and Customs Enforcement had asked the Monroe County Sheriff''s Office to hold "Peter Brown" for deportation to Jamaica, and that was that. Serves the US-born Brown right for having such an exotic name.


Back in April, Brown, who lives in Key West, turned himself in to the Monroe Sheriff's department on a parole violation because he'd tested positive for weed on a pee test. (See, already a dangerous criminal!) He expected he'd spent a few nights in jail at most, but instead, because Monroe County is one of 17 Florida sheriffs' departments that signed up to share information and hold immigration suspects for ICE, he ended up being mistaken for the wrong guy and scheduled for deportation, and nothing Brown could do would convince his jailers to even look at the proof he was a citizen -- although, as it turns out, the jail's own records listed Brown's place of birth as "Philadelphia, Pennsylvania."

Brown tells his story in this video posted by the ACLU:

Serves him right for getting arrested by Sheriff Franz Kafka. Ha-ha, we are joking! The Monroe County Sheriff is named Richard A. Ramsay, and Sheriff Ramsay is named in an ACLU lawsuit accusing his office of "unlawful arrest and detention" of a citizen and violation of Brown's Fourth Amendment rights, as well as violation of Florida state law against false arrest. The lawsuit seeks damages for Brown's treatment, which included not only being falsely held for three weeks while the county ignored -- and jailers made fun of -- his attempts to show he's a citizen, but also taunting him about his certain deportation to a Jamaican prison. You know, just the sort of good-natured ribbing some good ol' Florida deputies would do to a gay man who feared being sent to one of the most homophobic countries in the Western Hemisphere.

The ACLU also argues the nature of the "Basic Ordering Agreement" between ICE and county sheriffs includes a perverse incentive: Since ICE pays counties to hold people wanted on immigration warrants, the counties have every reason to disregard the rights of people who can't show they've been illegally detained.

Needless to say, ICE portrays the BOA agreements a s a vital tool in protecting decent law-abiding Americans from criminal thugs who might be released on a technicality (like only being held until a minor parole violation is dealt with) then allowed back on the streets to terrorize us all with their driving without a license or smoking devil weed.

And since the Sheriff's Office was absolutely certain Brown was a dangerous criminal alien, they didn't simply ignore his insistence he was born in Philly (and his distinct lack of Jamaican accent), they also completely ignored the attempts by a friend of Brown to show a copy of Brown's birth certificate or to convince them they had the wrong guy:

[An] online inmate locator, viewed by Brown's friend, included eyebrow-raising information. By its account, Brown stood 7 feet tall, when in fact he is no more than 5-foot-7. It also listed an incorrect birthday. When his friend called the jail to say they had the wrong man, officers told her the only option was to inform ICE.

Oh, but the jail staff didn't just ignore Brown's accurate claim he was a citizen -- they taunted him about it, because everyone knows the jails are full of innocent people. One sang the theme from "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," because "In west Philadelphia born and raised..." is what passed for sharp wit to use at a stupid lying illegal Jamaican. For a variation, another member of the jail staff adopted a fake Jamaican accent and said, "Yeah, whatever mon, everything's gonna be alright." The complaint doesn't specify whether the jailer also sang like Bob Marley, but wouldn't that have been a hoot?

Brown also filed a whole series of written complaints, including this one reproduced by the ACLU's blog post on the lawsuit. Hey, not our problem, said the sheriff's office. We're gonna hold you no matter whether the ICE request is valid or not, and the validity of your detention is "between you, your attorney, and ICE."

Due process? We don't have to show you no stinking due process. Frankly, we're astonished that virtually none of the press coverage of Brown's case has made more of the fact that this is the second time he's been falsely accused of being a "criminal alien" -- he says over 20 years ago, in New Jersey, he was arrested by INS -- the predecessor to ICE -- then "harassed and questioned all day," then unceremoniously left outside with a "whoops, sorry, wrong person." Hey, man, everyone has a story. Enjoy prison in Jamaica and say hi to Jimmy Buffet if you see him, har har.

Not surprisingly, even after the judge in his parole case ordered Brown's release, Monroe County refused to let him go. Instead, the sheriff's office rearrested him under the BOA, and held him for ICE, keeping the community safe from an American citizen.

Once he was finally sent off to an ICE facility (it was during that transfer that the witty deputy teased him with the fake Jamaican accent), somebody finally decided maybe they had the wrong, much shorter black man: At the Krome Detention Center in Miami,

Brown told ICE agents that he was a U.S. citizen, and they agreed to look at his birth certificate. His roommate emailed the document to an officer, the complaint reports, at which point the agency "hastily arranged for his release."

But wait! There was still time for one last bit of fuckery, according to the lawsuit: "Before he left, they confiscated all the documents they had given him regarding his impending deportation." Wouldn't want a paper trail documenting a tremendous screwup, heavens no.

As the Washington Post notes, this sort of insane indifference to due process and even very basic police work isn't unique to Brown's case:

Brown is hardly the only U.S. citizen to face the threat of deportation. A Syracuse University study published in 2013 used ICE records to determine that the agency had placed detainers on 834 U.S. citizens over just a four-year period.

In another detail that's gotten little attention, the ACLU's complaint even points out the Monroe County Sheriff's Office "recently held at least one other U.S. citizen for ICE" [our emphasis], but even after that incident, Sheriff Ramsay had "failed to implement any policies or training to ensure he has probable cause" when detaining people for ICE. Instead, the office's official policy is simply to hold everyone ICE asks to detain, no matter what.

The lawsuit -- which names only Ramsey in his role as sheriff -- seeks a declaration that Brown's rights were violated, as well as unspecified damages and payment of his attorneys' fees. Yr Wonkette hopes The US District Court for the Southern District throws the book at 'em. And this book, too.

           A Quick Look At The Seattle Mariners Rebuild Process      Cache   Translate Page      
Embed from Getty Images
Since the end of the 2018 MLB Season, the Seattle Mariners have made a flurry of trades to get rid of some pricey contracts, avoid having to commit long-term and attempt to restock their farm system.

It started with a trade of Mike Zunino to the Tampa Bay Rays for Mallex Smith and Jake Fraley. Smith is a pretty solid return for a catcher with a .207 career batting average. Sure, Zunino has 20+ HR power, but Smith has the potential to hit .300 at the top of the Mariners batting order and stole 40 bases last year with 39 XBH.

Next, Seattle dealt their Ace, James Paxton, to the New York Yankees. Seattle received the following prospects in return:
Paxton just recently turned 30-years-old and pitched a career-high 160 innings in 2018. He struck out 208 batters, walking 42 and lowered his career WHIP to 1.19. He allowed a career high 23 home runs and now will make his home start at Yankee Stadium, which ranked sixth in Runs/HR according to Park Factors. Safeco Field saw the 4th fewest runs per game and in the middle of the pack in HRs allowed.

Then Seattle made a smaller trade with the Chicago White Sox, swapping Alex Colome for Omar Narvaez. Narvaez will provide the Mariners with a more patient hitter than Zunino. Narvaez owns a career .366 OBP

They followed that up with a blockbuster deal, sending Edwin Diaz and Robinson Cano to the New York Mets. The Mariners received the following players/prospects in return:
When Jeff McNeil was rumored to be a part of this deal and there was no mention of the Mariners sending 20+ mil to the Mets, I was not a fan of these deal as a Mets fan. Kelenic has superstar potential, and Dunn was also recently selected in the first round, but with Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Zach Wheeler in the prime of their career, new GM Brodie Van Wagenen is in win now mode.

Diaz has saved over 100 games for the Mariners in the last three seasons, including 57 last year! In 191 career innings pitched, Diaz has 301 strikeouts to 64 walks with a 2.64 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP.

The Mariners wanted to get rid of Cano's contract so bad, that they were willing to deal a dominant closer, who will turn just 25-years-old prior to Opening Day.

Cano is owed $24mil for each of the next five seasons, until he turns 40 in the year 2023. We all know what he is capable of doing offensively.
The latest agreed upon trade sends Jean Segura to the Philadelphia Phillies. Carlos Santana and J.P. Crawford will be wearing a Seattle Mariners uniform in 2019. Segura hit slightly better than .300 in his two seasons with the Mariners, with 59 doubles, 21 home runs and five triples over 637 ABs.

The Mariners acquired him after the 2016 season, sending Ketel Marte and Taijuan Walker to the Arizona Dimaondbacks. Segura hit 41 doubles and 20 home runs in 2016.

In Carlos Santana's only season with the Phillies, he his 28 doubles and 24 home runs, but hit just .229. His OBP was above .350 though. He had a down year compared to his career averages, despite playing in a hitter friendly ballpark.

Santana had signed a three-year $60mil deal last offseason which includes a 2021 option for $17.5mil. However, he failed to include a no-trade clause in the deal which could have prevented this trade from happening.

Currently, the only Mariners in the lineup from last years team are Mitch Haniger, Kyle Seager, Ryon Healy Ben Gamel and Dee Gordon. Rumors are that Seattle is looking to deal Seager too. You can add Mike Leake to the trading block as well.

          12/4: Big Poison MVP; Sluggo, Spanky, Brandt, McKinnon Deals; AVS-GG; HBD Big Joe, Johnny & Ted      Cache   Translate Page      
  • 1886 - The St. Louis Maroons traded 1B Alex McKinnon to Pittsburgh for 1B Otto Schomberg and $400. Schomberg was the Alleghenys starting first sacker who had some power and a great eye, but the 30-year-old McKinnon was considered a potential star. The Boston native was hitting .340 for the Pittsburgh club in July when he contracted typhoid fever and died 20 days after his last game. 
  • 1892 - RHP Johnny Meador was born in Madison, North Carolina. After a good season at Galveston in the Texas League, the Bucs brought him up in 1920. He went 0-2/4.21, and perhaps saw the handwriting on the wall when he left the team in July to play for independent Oil City, getting a $2,000 bonus for jumping ship and a two-year contract for $3,000 annually. C Cliff Lee was rumored to join him, causing the Pirates to give him a mid-season raise (he had leverage beyond Oil City’s offer; he was also the only healthy catcher on the roster at the time) and sending owner Barney Dreyfuss into a tizzy, threatening to sue the outlaw OC club for raiding his team. Meador never returned to MLB after switching leagues. 
Ted Toles 2014 (image Ronnie Joyner via "Living on Borrowed Time...")
  • 1925 - LHP/OF Ted Toles was born in Newton Falls, Ohio, near Warren. His pro baseball career began in 1946 with the Pittsburgh Crawfords and after a brief Negro League career, he played for the minor league affiliates of the Cleveland Indians (including a stop with the New Castle Indians in 1951), New York Yankees and Philadelphia Athletics. Ted also toured with the Jackie Robinson All-Stars with Robinson, Lary Doby, Satchel Paige and teammate Willie Pope when they barnstormed against different MLB all-star teams during the offseason. Toles was one of the last remaining links to the Negro Leagues and was featured in the book “Living on Borrowed Time: The Life and Times of Negro League Player Ted Toles Jr.” before passing away in April of 2016. 
  • 1927 - OF Paul "Big Poison" Waner finished ahead of the Card's Fordham Flash, Frankie Frisch, for NL MVP honors by 72 votes to 66; Rogers Hornsby made it a three-man race with his 54 votes. In his second year in the show, Waner hit .380, tops in the NL, led the league with 131 RBI, scored 114 runs and banged out a MLB-best 237 hits to lead Pittsburgh to the senior circuit title. He entered the Hall of Fame in 1952. 
  • 1936 - The Brooklyn Dodgers traded LHP Ed Brandt to the Pirates for IF Cookie Lavagetto and LHP Ralph “Lefty” Birkofer. Brandt lasted two years with the Bucs as a swingman, going 16-14/3.23 before he retired at age 34 after 11 MLB campaigns. While here, he tied a Bucco mark held by several by winning three 1-0 games in 1937, a record no Pirate has matched since. Lavagetto started for the next five years, hitting .275 for Brooklyn and making four All-Star teams before losing four years to the Second World War. Lefty made 11 appearances for the Dodgers in 1937, his last year of MLB ball. 
  • 1973 - The Pirates traded P Nelson Briles and IF Fernando Gonzalez to the KC Royals for UT Ed “Spanky” Kirkpatrick, IF Kurt Bevacqua and minor league 1B Winston Cole. Briles lasted five more seasons, but posted an ERA under four just once in that span while none of the others became everyday contributors, though Spanky hung around as a utility guy with the Bucs until 1977, batting .236 over that time. 
Sluggo 1995 Flair
  • 1989 - The Pirates picked up C Don Slaught from the Yankees for RHPs Jeff Robinson and farmhand Willie Smith after New York had first turned down a reported package of RHP Randy Kramer and C Tom Prince. Slaught would form a platoon tandem with Spanky LaValliere through 1992, and remained with the Bucs until 1996 after being injured during most of the 1995 campaign, hitting .305 during his Pittsburgh tenure. Sluggo played for the Royals, Rangers, Yankees, Pirates, Angels, White Sox, and Padres in his 16-year career; a catcher with a .283 lifetime BA has an awfully long shelf life in MLB. Robinson tossed for three more seasons in the AL, while Smith threw seven frames in 1994 in his only taste of the show. 
  • 1990 - CF Andy Van Slyke won his second straight Gold Glove and LF Barry Bonds earned his first. Barry’s dad Bobby had won GG’s in the seventies, and they became the first father-and-son team to be honored with the award. 
  • 1992 - RHP Joe Musgrove was born in El Cajon, California. He was taken out of high school in the first round (46th overall) of the 2011 draft and was sent to the Astros in 2012 as part of the JA Happ trade. He debuted in 2016 for Houston and a year later he was plugged into the rotation but had a rough go. Joe went on the DL with arm soreness, returned and was sent to the pen, where he excelled, winning a World Series game. The Bucs got Musgrove in 2018 as a part of the Gerrit Cole trade with the ‘Stros, and after missing time with a sore shoulder, he joined the starting five in late May, posting a 6-9/4.06 line.

In this session, the two outspoken and articulate musicians explain the origins of the project, which includes "train songs" both familiar and obscure. Bragg says that he considers railroads the most revolutionary method of transportation and that, as a Brit, he's amazed that trains aren't used as much in the U.S. as in Europe.

Natalie was the Closner sister responsible for the group's formation; after she'd begun writing and performing, she realized how much more powerful the music could be with the addition of her siblings' voices. Joseph's ATO Records debut, I'm Alone, No You're Not , was produced by Mike Mogis of Bright Eyes . As gorgeous as the sisters sound on the album, it's a revelation to hear them sing live.

Today's Stock Market: Dow Jones Slammed On Economic Slowdown Worries
KEN SHREVE
Investor's Business Daily
12/04/2018

Sellers were in back in the stock market in spades Tuesday as Wall Street grew concerned about falling bond yields and and an economic slowdown. In today's stock market, JPMorgan (JPM) took a hit in the Dow Jones, down nearly 5%. Big decliners in the Nasdaq 100 included semiconductor stocks like Applied Materials (AMAT), Lam Research (LRCX) and Micron Technology (MU). (For updates on this story and other market coverage, visit the Stock Market Today.)

In late-afternoon trading, the Nasdaq composite was down 3%, the S&P 500 lost 2.5% and the Dow Jones industrial average swooned 2.5%. Small caps took the hardest hit as the Russell 2000 slumped 3.3%. Volume on the NYSE and Nasdaq was tracking slightly lower than Monday's levels but seemed to be picking up the pace.

In today's stock market, Apple (AAPL) was another big decliner in the Dow Jones, down nearly 4%, after HSBC downgraded shares to hold with a 200 price target.

After gapping above its 50-day moving average Monday, the Philadelphia Semiconductor index plunged below the line Tuesday, falling nearly 4%.

Innovator IBD 50 ETF (FFTY) fell mostly in line with the Nasdaq. After eight straight gains, IBD 50 stock BioTelemetry (BEAT) plunged around 7%. HealthEquity (HQY) was another big decliner in the IBD 50, down more than 5%, ahead of its earnings report after the close.

Today's Stock Market: Bonds Rally

In economic news, the IBD/TIPP Economic Index dipped to 52.6 in early December, matching its April low. Meanwhile, the spread between the 10-year yield and 2-year yield continued to narrow. The 10-year Treasury yield was recently trading around 2.91%, with the the 2-year at 2.80%. Money flowing into bonds hurt the cause of financial stocks. IBD's Banks-Super Regional group, which includes stocks like Fifth Third Bancorp (FITB), Regions Financial (RF) and SVB Financial (SIVB), was down 5% in afternoon trading.

Heavy-volume gainers in today's stock market included AutoZone (AZO). The auto parts retailer gapped up to a new high after earnings and same-store sales topped expectations.

Also in the stock market today, RH (RH) soared 10% thanks to strong earnings and bullish Q4 guidance.

Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz is out indefinitely because of thoracic outlet syndrome.

En sérieuse difficulté avec son tir, dont il a perdu la mécanique, Markelle Fultz a dû consulter plusieurs spécialistes pour savoir de quoi il souffrait réellement. Le meneur des Philadelphia 76ers est désormais fixé: le dernier médecin qu’il a vu lui a diagnostiqué un syndrome du défilé thoraco-brachial, un problème de compression des nerfs et des vaisseaux sanguins en dessous du cou. La bonne nouvelle pour lui et les Sixers, c’est que ce trouble "peut être traité par kinésithérapie", a indiqué l’agent du joueur à ESPN, et qu’il pourrait donc, à l’issue de sa rééducation, retrouver le shoot qui était le sien en NCAA, à l’université de Washington. La mauvaise, c’est que le n°1 de la draft 2017, absent depuis le 19 novembre dernier, est écarté des parquets indéfiniment.

          Predicting studs and duds for NFL Week 14      Cache   Translate Page      
We kick off NFL Week 14 by first congratulating the Los Angeles Rams for becoming the first team to clinch their division. With that being said, the Rams will look to continue their hot streak on the road against one of the league’s tougher defenses this Sunday. Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys are in must-win mode when they host their divisional rival Philadelphia Eagles. A certain running back should record some off-the-charts numbers in this matchup. In the AFC, the Kansas City Chiefs offense might be tested when the Baltimore Ravens arrive at Arrowhead Stadium. If the 10-2 Chiefs fall, it would open up the door for three other AFC franchises — all 9-3 — to tighten the gap. This leads to our stud and dud predictions for NFL Week 14. Stud: Michael Thomas, wide receiver, New Orleans Saints Thomas has been pretty vanilla in his past two games. But, he has an excellent chance of breaking his low-yardage, non-scoring streak in his upcoming matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The last time Thomas played the
          Yankees, Phillies turn to alternatives following Corbin agreement      Cache   Translate Page      
Neither the Yankees nor the Phillies were willing to go to a sixth year for lefty Patrick Corbin, per reports from Billy Witz of the New York Times and Jon Heyman of Fancred (Twitter links), and they’re now left to seek out alternatives following Corbin’s reported six-year, $140M agreement with the Nationals. For the Yankees, that means shifting their focus to former a pair of familiar faces in Nathan Eovaldi and J.A. Happ, Jon Morosi of MLB.com tweets. Witz suggests that the Yankees will also continue looking into Dallas Keuchel and further explore the trade market. Meanwhile, it seems that the Phillies will be giving the Yankees some competition in some of those efforts. MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki reports that Happ will now become a primary focus for the Phils, while Fancred’s Jon Heyman tweets that Philadelphia “will consider” Keuchel. The Phillies are aiming to add one starter to the rotation, Heyman continues, with a left-hander in particular being a preference. Keuchel, Eovaldi and Happ are the consensus t
          Report: Phillies in ‘strong position’ to sign Patrick Corbin      Cache   Translate Page      
The Philadelphia Phillies have made it no secret that they intend to spend big this offseason, and that could mean signing the top starting pitcher on the free agent market. Andy Martino of SNY.tv reports that rival executives believe the Phillies are in a “strong position” to sign former Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Patrick Corbin. Corbin is reportedly the Yankees’ top priority this offseason, but Martino notes that he may have to take less money if he wants to wear pinstripes. Since he grew up a Yankees fan in upstate New York, that is not out of the question. Bob Nightengale of USA Today speculates that Corbin will sign a contract worth at least $125 million over six years. While the Yankees still want to add him, they have reportedly been engaging with the other top starting pitchers on the market in case it does not work out, according to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com. Corbin, 29, went 11-7 with a 3.15 ERA in 33 starts with Arizona last season. The Phillies are still in the hunt to sign the two biggest names
          Diamondbacks, Cardinals have reportedly discussed Paul Goldschmidt trade      Cache   Translate Page      
The Arizona Diamondbacks have made it known to teams that they are willing to trade their top players this winter, and star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt seems to be generating the most interest. According to Jon Morosi of MLB.com, the St. Louis Cardinals have been in contact with the Diamondbacks about a possible trade involving Goldschmidt. This isn’t the first time this offseason we have heard the Cardinals linked to Goldschmidt, so all indications are that the interest is real. Arizona was also believed to be discussing a Goldschmidt trade with the Philadelphia Phillies at one point. Goldschmidt, 31, batted .290/.389/.533 last season with 35 doubles and 33 home runs. He is a .299 hitter with a .931 OPS for his career, and he is set to make $14.5 million in his final season of arbitration before becoming a free agent after the 2019 season. The Diamondbacks appear to be feeling more urgency to trade Zack Greinke and the roughly $105 million he has remaining on his deal, but there may be too many obstacles

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          The Poinsettia's Proud Philadelphia Roots      Cache   Translate Page      
Hardy Christmas flower got its U.S. start in 1829 at the first Flower Show.


By Virginia A. Smith, The Philadelphia Inquirer Staff Writer December 18, 2011

"The red poinsettia has been a Christmas tradition forever, it seems. Did you know it has a historic connection to Philadelphia?

"Bartram's Garden, established on the banks of the Schuylkill around 1728 by botanist John Bartram, was the first to successfully grow the poinsettia outside its native Mexico. Bartram's officially introduced it to the American public and commercial trade at the inaugural Philadelphia Flower Show on June 6, 1829.

"At this one-day affair, the public reacted to the poinsettia and hundreds of other plants with such excitement that the show's host, the fledgling Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, decided to make it an annual event.

"The exotic Mexican beauty was described as "a new Euphorbia with bright scarlet bracteas, or floral leaves, presented to the Bartram collection by Mr. Poinsett, United States Minister to Mexico." "Mr. Poinsett" was Joel Roberts Poinsett, a prominent South Carolina politician and diplomat with an interest in horticulture.

"Nevertheless, according to historian Joel T. Fry, it was not Bartram's that became known as the poinsettia's patron. English garden historians bestowed that honor on Philadelphia nurseryman Robert Buist, who introduced it to his Scottish homeland in 1834, fully five years after the flower show.

"Even though something new might be discovered, Bartram's didn't sit around recording each one," Fry said.  As opposed to the Brits, who did.

"Late in life, Buist corrected the record. He wrote an article describing his presence at Bartram's when "two plants with stubby little roots were unpacked. They turned out to be poinsettias," Fry said.

"From the get-go, the now oh-so-familiar poinsettia was the province of botanists, "plant nerds," and wealthy hobbyists, according to Paul Ecke 3d, whose great-grandfather Albert Ecke started the family's poinsettia business in Los Angeles a century ago.

"Nobody else had the money to heat their house to keep the flowers alive, and certainly not a greenhouse," Ecke said.

"For decades, the poinsettia was field-grown and sold as a cut flower, like roses. In the 1960s, the Eckes moved their growing operations indoors, commercial breeding began in earnest, and potted plants quickly superseded cut stems as the norm.

"With aggressive marketing, poinsettias soon became "the Christmas plant," which is an honest claim; their natural bloom time is winter.

"Today, besides the ubiquitous red, poinsettias come in lots of colors, even yellow, and designs, including marbled, painted, and glittered. Ecke has a new early-bloomer he promotes for outdoor landscapes in places such as Texas and California.

"Remarkably, red is still the public's favorite color. "It's the tradition," he says.

But the poinsettia industry struggles to attract a younger audience - with novelty and supersized plants, as well as specimens sold in "cool pots that promote lifestyle."

"We don't want poinsettias to just be Grandma's plant or Mom's plant. We have to make poinsettias cool for Gen XYZ," Ecke said... The family business, which moved to Encinitas, Calif., in 1923 and expanded to Guatemala in 1995, still controls 70 percent of the worldwide market in poinsettia cuttings, 50 percent of the domestic.

"As for "Mr. Poinsett," turns out he was vain and opinionated and caused such a scandal in Mexico, he was eventually kicked out. Today, Fry said, "he is always portrayed as an evil American gringo."

"As if that weren't grinch-y enough: In papers left behind, Poinsett never once mentions the curious plant that set Philadelphians on their head in 1829.

"Said Fry: "It was not a big thing in his life."

          19C US - Christmas Trees & Cards      Cache   Translate Page      
The Christmas that Americans celebrate today seems like a timeless weaving of custom and feeling beyond the reach of history. Yet the familiar mix of carols, cards, presents, trees, multiplicities of Santas and holiday neuroses that have come to define December 25th in the United States is little more than a hundred years old.

The Christmas Tree...
1836 The Christmas tree as the frontispiece to The Stranger's Gift by Herman Bokum.

In colonial times, Americans of different sects and different national origins kept the holiday (or did not) in ways they carried over from the Old World, Puritans, for instance, attempted to ignore Christmas because the Bible was silent on the topic. Virginia planters took the occasion to feast, dance, gamble, hunt and visit, perpetuating what they believed to be the old Christmas customs in English manors. Even as late as the early nineteenth century, many Americans, churched or unchurched, northerners or southerners, hardly took notice of the holiday at all.
Godey's Lady's Book, in 1850. Americanized version of Queen Victoria and her family from the Illustrated London News.

The Civil War intensified Christmas' appeal. Its sentimental celebration of family matched the yearnings of soldiers and those they left behind. Its message of peace and goodwill spoke to the most immediate prayers of all Americans. Yet northern victory in 1865 as much as the war situation itself determined the popularity and shape of the America's Christmas. Now unchallenged in the sphere of national myth-making and in control of the publishing trade, customs and symbols of Yankee origin and preference came to stand for the American Christmas.
F.A. Chapman, The Christmas Tree, 1866 edition of Christmas Poems and Pictures.

As the tree gained prominence in front parlours, it also assumed a place in the market. During the 1850s, town squares began to bristle with trees cut for seasonable profits. Seamlessly, the 'German-ness' of the tree receded as it became an icon of an American festival and, to some, an index of acculturation. Even in the homes of 'the Hebrew brethren', 'Christmas trees bloomed', noted a Philadelphia newspaper in 18'77. '[T]he little ones of Israel were as happy over them as Christian children'. By 1900, one American in five was estimated to have a Christmas tree.

At first, the decoration of these fragrant evergreens reflected the whim of folk tradition. Celebrants added nuts, strings of popcorn or beads, oranges, lemons, candies and home-made trinkets. However, widely-read newspapers and ladies' magazines raised the standards for ornamentation. (One suggestion: cotton batting dipped in thin gum arabic then diamond dust made a 'beautiful frosting' for tree branches.) Homely affectations gave way to more uniform and sophisticated ones, the old style overtaken by the urge to make the tree a showpiece for the artistic arrangement of 'glittering baubles, the stars, angels, etc'.
Winslow Homer, The Christmas-Tree. Harper's Weekly, December 25, 1858.

Tree decoration soon became big business. As early as 1870, American businessmen began to import large quantities of ornaments from Germany to be sold on street corners and, later, in toy shops and variety stores. Vendors hawked glass ornaments and balls in bright colours, tin cut in all imaginable shapes and wax angels with spun glass wings. 'So many charming little ornaments can now be bought ready to decorate Christmas trees that it seems almost a waste of time to make them at home', one advertisement declared.

The Christmas Card...

The rise of Christmas cards revealed other aspects of the new holiday's profile. R.H. Pease, a printer and variety store owner who lived in Albany, New York, distributed the first American-made Christmas card in the early 1850s. A family scene dominated the small card's centre, but unlike its English forerunner (itself only a decade older), the images on each of its four corners made no allusion to poverty, cold, or hunger. Instead, pictures of Santa, reindeer, dancers and an array of Christmas presents and Christmas foods suggested the bounty and joys of the season.

It took Louis Prang, a recent German immigrant and astute reader of public taste, to expand the sending of cards to a grand scale. Prang arrived in America in 1850 and soon made a name as a printer. By 1870, he owned perhaps two-thirds of the steam presses in America and had perfected the color printing process of chromolithography. After distributing his trade cards by the thousands at an international exposition in 1873, the wife of his London agent suggested he add a Christmas greeting to them. When Prang introduced these new cards into the United States in 1.8?5, they proved such a hit that he could not meet demand.

Behind Prang's delight in profits lay a certain idealism. He saw his cards as small, affordable works of art. Through them he hoped to stimulate popular interest in original decorative art and to educate public taste. In 1880, Prang began to sponsor annual competitions for Christmas card designs to promote these ends. These contests made Christmas cards so popular that other card manufacturers entered the market. By 1890, cheap imitations from his native Germany drove Prang from the Christmas card market entirely.

Whatever Prang's plans for democratising art in his accepted land, the advent of Christmas cards in the marketplace soon served functions in keeping with the increasing pace and essential nature of American society. In a hurried and mobile nation, more and more Americans resorted to cards instead of honouring the older custom of writing Christmas letters or making personal holiday visits. The cards' ready-made sentiments drew together friends and families spread across a rapidly expanding national geography, making them a staple of December’s mail. 'I thought last year would be the end of the Christmas card mania, but I don't think so now', one postal official complained in 1882. 'Why four years ago a Christmas card was a rare thing. The public then got the mania and the business seems to be getting larger every year'.

Christmas cards also made modest but suitable presents. '[W]orn out from choosing gifts' for old friends and school mates, one writer noted, 'we usually fall back on Christmas cards, which constitute one of the most precious and at the same time inexpensive contributions of these latter days to the neglected cause of sentiment'.

In the NBA, this is very obvious. Fred Hoiberg was dismissed by the Chicago Bulls over the weekend after a poor start. Hoiberg was in his 5th season with Chicago after a successful run in the college ranks, and will likely land somewhere else next season.
=========================================
There is much to-do over the fact that Green Bay fired Mike McCarthy after losing to Arizona on Sunday. Fox's Troy Aikman ripped the decision, feeling that McCarthy deserved a better fate in his 12th season.

ESPN's Jason Witten, like Aikman a former Dallas Cowboys star, echoed Aikman's sentiments Monday night. In contrast, fellow analyst Anthony "Booger" McFarland felt the time was right to make a change, as rare as it is for Green Bay to make a change in mid-seaosn. Former Miami coach Joe "Don't call me Regis" Philbin will take over for the final four games of the season.

Personally, I feel McCarthy will also find a new home in 2019.
==========================================
Meanwhile, the NFL needs to get its house in order when it comes to players and the law.

Two first round draft picks in 2017 are sitting out the rest of the season because of off-field issues. Last week, Kansas City cut their leading rusher, Kareem Hunt, amid charges of assaulting a woman earlier this year. TMZ posted a video of a February incident, and the Chiefs, despite being the #1 seed in the AFC at this point, wasted little time in dismissing Hunt, who has been placed on the league's exempt list, meaning he can't play or practice even if he signs with a new team.

A few days earlier, San Francisco cut their first round pick in '17, Reuben Foster, after an alleged incident in a Tampa hotel. Two days later, the Washington Trumpets took a chance on Foster, but he, too, is on the exempt list.

Has the NFL learned nothing from the Ray Rice debacle a few years back? Apparently, no, not yet.
===========================================
Perhaps, then, it is karma that visited the Trumpets in Philadelphia on Monday in a loss to the Eagles.

Colt McCoy, thrust into the starting role at quarterback after Alex Smith went down for the season with a broken leg, suffered the same injury, but was able to play two more downs before calling it a night and a season. Mark Sanchez, whose resume includes the Eagles, Jets, Bears, & Cowboys, was signed as McCoy's backup, and now he's the starter for the rest of the year. Butt Fumble II, anyone?
===========================================
The College Football Playoff is now set, but, as usual, the committee didn't exactly endear itself to the masses.

SEC champ Alabama has been the #1 seed from wire to wire, and despite claims of 'Bama Fatigue from fans tired of seeing Nick Saban's Crimson Tide in the playoff every year, nothing's going to change unless the NCAA finally does away with the early season scheduling of non-league tomato cans for Power 5 conference teams such as Alabama. They talk about "strength of schedule", but all that really is is an excuse to justify the same old, same old, leaving mid-major champs like Central Florida out in the cold.

With the SEC comprised of two divisions, you don't need to have non-league games. You've got enough teams to start conference play from the jump. Same goes for the Big 10, although its champion, Ohio State, got the el snubbino from the committee of idiots. The Buckeyes will play in the Rose Bowl on January 1, which will be coach Urban Meyer's final game with the team, as reports have surfaced that he will step down after the season, due mostly to health issues more than the scandals involving assistants.

Alabama-Oklahoma would be worth watching, if but to see all the front-runners on the Bamawagon plotz when the Tide can't blow away the Sooners. As it is, Alabama came from behind for a change to win the SEC title over Georgia on Saturday. I wouldn't mind ESPN getting the biggest Sooner fan in the country, Jim Ross, on the College GameDay panel. It's not as if they've had enough WWE talents, past or present, on their Saturday show. The Hall of Famer could easily take fellow geriatric Lee Corso to school.

Clemson-Notre Dame will be interesting simply because I can't see the Tigers running away and hiding from the Irish.

          Seven Days Hires Three Staff Writers      Cache   Translate Page      
Vermont’s independent newsweekly, Seven Days, has hired three experienced writers to join its editorial staff.

Kevin McCallum, who shared in the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news, will join Seven Days’ Statehouse bureau in January. The veteran journalist spent 13 years as a business and then city hall reporter for the Press Democrat of Santa Rosa, California. There, he was part of a team that won the Pulitzer for its coverage of the wildfires that devastated Sonoma County in October 2017. McCallum spent the past several months driving his family east in an RV in hopes of resettling in his native New England.

Derek Brouwer, an award-winning Montana journalist, will soon make his own journey east. He’ll join the Seven Days news team in January as a staff writer. Brouwer cut his teeth at the Helena Independent Record and Billings Gazette before taking a job with the alternative weekly Missoula Independent in July 2015. Since the paper closed in September, he’s continued to cover Montana’s economy through the grant-funded Long Streets Project.

Chelsea Edgar marked her first day on Seven Days’ arts and culture desk last month with a cover story on real estate developer Pritam Singh’s ownership of a sizable slice of South Woodstock. A Middlebury College grad, Edgar had been freelancing for Seven Days since September and previously contributed to BuzzFeed and Philadelphia magazine. She got her start in the business interning for NPR’s “All Things Considered.”

McCallum, Brouwer and Edgar join a robust staff of nearly 25 writers and editors at the Burlington-based weekly.

Baltimore Ravens - Oakland Raiders 34:17

Mit dem ersten Drive bei den Baltimore Ravens bewiesen die Oakland Raiders, dass sie gewillt waren, auch schwere Auswärtsspiele zu gewinnen. In über sechs Minuten überquerte Quarterback Derek Carr mit seiner Offense das Feld und Running Back Doug Martin flog über den letzten Yard in die Endzone. Das Heimteam konnte umgehend mit einem Field Goal von Jason Tucker aus 47 Yard kontern und holten im zweiten Quarter nach einem Punt Return Touchdown über 70 Yard von Cyrus Jones die Führung. Diese wurde mit einem Field Goal aus 28 Yard zum 13: 7 ausgebaut. Ihre sich steigernden Spielanteile konnten die Ravens aber nicht wie gewünscht umsetzen, da Safety Reggie Nelson den Ball von Quarterback Lamar Jackson abfing und die Raiders ebenfalls ein Field Goal durch Kicker Daniel Carlson aus 42 Yard erzielten. Baltimore hatte trotzdem nochmals die Möglichkeit auf Punkte, allerdings warf Jackson seine zweite Interception in der Endzone und die Raiders blieben mit dem Pausenstand von 10:13 dran. Viel konzentrierter agierten die Ravens dann im dritten Quarter. Mit dem Ballbesitz marschierte der Angriff über das Feld und Jackson selber lief die letzten fünf Yard in die Endzone. Die Raiders antworteten jedoch direkt mit einem Touchdown, welchen Tight End Jared Cook spektakulär über 16 Yard von Carr fing. Wie zuvor ging Baltimore erneut zeitfressend und effektiv über das Feld. Der Drive endete im vierten Quarter mit einem Pass von Jackson über acht Yard zu dem ehemaligen Raiders Wide Receiver Michael Crabtree, der ungedeckt in die Endzone kam. Oakland gab sich Mühe, den Spielstand von 17:27 nochmals zu verkürzen. Leider kam es sehr unglücklich für die Gäste, als Carr von Linebacker Matthew Judon gesackt wurde, dabei den Ball verlor, den Linebacker Terrell Suggs ungehindert über 43 Yard zum Touchdown trug. Mit 34:17 mussten sich die Raiders den Ravens geschlagen geben...

tour di eros ramazzotti

Il tour di Eros Ramazzotti per Vita ce n'è sembra non volersi fermare. Dopo le prime date annunciate, l'artista romano si dice pronto ad allungare il calendario con altri appuntamenti che condurrà nelle Americhe.

Si tratta dei concerti legati al supporto di Vita ce n'è, sua ultima prova di studio nella quale ha voluto già inserire una nota internazionale attraverso i duetti con Luis Fonsi e Alessia Cara.

La prevendita dei biglietti per le nuove date è partita dal 5 dicembre e non è escluso che il calendario possa ulteriormente arricchirsi di nuovi appuntamenti, visto il successo di vendite della prima tranche che solo per la parte italiana ha visto staccare circa 200000 tagliandi.

L'assetto della tournée mondiale che Eros Ramazzotti inaugurerà nei prossimi mesi è realizzato da sua moglie Marica Pellegrinelli, dalla quale ha avuto i figli Raffaella Maria e Gabrio Tullio. In queste ore, l'artista di Perfetto sta festeggiando il compleanno della sua primogenita Aurora, avuta dal matrimonio con Michelle Hunziker.

L'amore per la sua figlia maggiore è contenuto anche in Vita ce n'è, nel quale ha inserito il brano Buonamore che le ha dedicato. Come lo stesso artista ebbe modo di dichiarare ad alcuni giorni dal rilascio del disco, il brano è un modo per lasciar andare sua figlia ormai adulta, quindi pronta alle belle esperienze ma anche a quelle più deludenti che aiutano a crescere.

I concerti avranno inizio dall'anteprima mondiale del 17 febbraio a Monaco e continueranno in tutto il globo e in Italia per i primi mesi del 2019. Queste le date della leg mondiale che Eros Ramazzotti terrà per il supporto a Vita ce n'è.

Maggio 2019

14 Guadalajara, Auditorium Telmex
16 Mexico City, Auditorio Nacional

Eros Ramazzotti è anche un grande tifoso di calcio. Di recente ha dichiarato di essere pronto a incontrare Cristiano Ronaldo, ma si è anche complimentato con Luka Modric per la recente e meritata conquista del Pallone d'Oro.
