COLUMBUS, Ohio -- With two starters out and another not feeling well, and each team favored in five bouts apiece, something had to give somewhere.
Penn State didn't waste any time waiting to see how it would all unfold, as Roman Bravo-Young and Nick Lee scored back-to-back, match-opening upset victories which sparked the No. 1 Nittany Lions to an easier-than-expected 28-9 victory over No. 6 Ohio State Friday night before nearly 13,276 fans in St. John Arena.
If ever a team proved it was No. 1 and virtually unbeatable, the Lions were it. In each of their seven bouts pitting ranked wrestler against ranked wrestler, including two ranked higher, Penn State was the winner.
"We believe in our guys, obviously, but, yeah, they wrestled a great match," Penn State coach Cael Sanderson said outside the locker room after Penn State's 56th straight dual meet victory. "We've got a lot of matches left. This was a great atmosphere but we're happy with the way our guys came in and wrestled today," for sure.
Ohio State coach Tom Ryan was pretty stunned and said Penn State's first two wins took energy out of the Buckeye team. "No, I didn't envision it going this way, I thought we were ready to win,'' he said. "We thought we were. What we thought and what happened tonight were tragically different. I did not think that this would happen.''
MEN OF THE MATCH: Pretty much everyone but Bravo-Young and Lee were the obvious heroes. Bravo-Young's apparent strategy was to make No. 6 Luke Pletcher shoot, which Pletcher did just once. And he almost made it count in the opening overtime period when he put Bravo-Young high in the air but was unable to stop an extremely athletic shoulder roll to freedom by Bravo-Young.
Bravo-Young escaped in six seconds and then had to ride out Pletcher to win. Pletcher's known for his mat wrestling but Bravo-Young rode for the first eight seconds before going out of bounds. He then took a stalling warning by hanging on Pletcher's legs which stopped the clock with eight seconds left. He completed the ride for the win but too enthusiastically slammed his headgear to the mat and caused Penn State to lose a team point.
"He has a lot of talent and he works hard and he's been grinding every day trying to get better and it's starting to pay off for him," Penn State's Jason Nolf said about Bravo-Young.
Sanderson thought Bravo-Young was playing things a little cautious because of his knee injury. "But he can win close matches, he's a tough kid. Great competition tonight and we're happy with our guys' effort,'' Sanderson said about Bravo-Young and the team in general.
Lee trailed 5-2 after two periods against No. 2 Joey McKenna but escaped in the third and took down McKenna just four seconds later. Sensing McKenna, now 14-1, was tiring, Lee cut him free and maintained pressure on McKenna's legs, scooting around off an initial single-leg shot for the winning takedown with 33 seconds left and completing the ride for a 7-6 win.
"I think everyone was yelling on our bench to cut him; he needed to get another takedown," Sanderson said.
TURNING POINT: Bo Nickal's fall wasn't the turning point, it was the exclamation point. He fended off two semi-decent shots from No. 2 Kollin Moore before striking with a single-leg and immediately slapping on a tight overhead cradle and ultimately adjusting his own position to flatten Moore.
"Bo always expects to pin his guys which is a great mentality," Nolf said. "He went out and did what he wanted to do and that's Bo."
Sanderson agreed. "He was ready to go,'' Sanderson said about Nickal. "Bo's a big-match guy and all of our guys...this was a big match for them and they wanted to wrestle well and they did.''
Not surprisingly, as coaches do for their own team, Ohio State's Ryan saw things a bit differently. "That's guy's a pinner," Ryan said about Nickal. "One of the top pinners that program's ever had. "Would I sound silly to say that Kollin Moore can win that match four or five or six weeks from now? I don't think that's silly at all. He got caught and we just have to learn from it and move on.''
BIGGEST SURPRISE: That the Buckeyes not only lost the first two but that Ohio State's Joey McKenna gassed in the third period. He was returning from injury and Ryan said McKenna was a little heavy and his weight cut was bigger than he wanted it to be. "When you wrestle somebody and even though it seems seven minutes isn't that long...when you wrestle somebody who makes you fight for every morsel, you can break down. And you saw Joey as the match went on, he broke down,'' Ryan said.
WHAT WE LEARNED: Name the last team you've seen that can deliver in the clutch better than this Penn State squad. Even Ryan heaped praise on the Lions. "This is one of the great teams,'' Ryan said about the Lions. "I've been in sports for a long time and they have four guys on that team ... they're four of the best college wrestlers that I've seen in the last 25 years. Credit to them. Nolf. Nickal. Vincenzo. Mark Hall. These are all guys who are really at an elite level. This is a really good team (Ohio State) and that (Penn State) was a special team.''
THEY SAID IT:
-- "No. We had to hold our ground in the five weights that we were favored and we didn't hold our ground. The smallest things make the biggest differences. When you land somebody, you've got to be ready for them to pull you up off their hips. That was a tough first one. The team knew we needed that and it took a little bit of energy out of us and the crowd.''--Ohio State coach Tom Ryan on 133-pounder Luke Pletcher allowing Roman Bravo-Young to roll out of his takedown attempt in overtime.
--"Roman's a tough kid. I think he's still in that stage where he' realizing how good he is and his potential. This should be great for his confidence.'' - Penn State coach Cael Sanderson on Roman Bravo-Young
NOTES: Eight of Friday night's 20 wrestlers - four from each team, actually - are among the top 14 in Flo's PFP (pound for pound) rankings. That alone made this dual meet the country's most significant of the season. ... The crowd of 13,276 was a St. John Arena record for wrestling. ...

|Calls to 'abolish billionaires' raise eyebrows, but they've been a long time coming Cache Translate Page|
For the first time on a large scale, Americans are debating whether to allow the existence of billionaires.
On Thursday, The New York Times published columnist Farhad Manjoo's "It's high time we abolish billionaires" above the fold on the front page of its print edition. While Manjoo is far from the first person to articulate the idea — see freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's call for a 70% tax rate for income above $10 million or Sen. Elizabeth Warren's call for a 3% wealth tax for fortunes above $1 billion — the unequivocal rallying cry was something different for the paper of record.
The ensuing arguments about his piece were about what you'd expect: ad hominem attacks and the pitting of capitalism against socialism. A Fox News panel called Manjoo "an idiot" and dismissed the critique of inequality as an attack on capitalism. Readers raised examples of "good billionaires."
Democrats have been arguing for years now about the value of socialism, but as Ocasio-Cortez's policy adviser Dan Riffle — known for his Twitter handle "Every Billionaire is a Policy Failure" — alluded to in a tweet, even if AOC, Sen. Bernie Sanders, or Warren are too radical for you, just look at what Trump-appointed Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell is saying.
"We want prosperity to be widely shared. We need policies to make that happen," Powell said on Wednesday, according to the Washington Post. "The U.S. lags now in mobility. And that's not our self-image as a country, nor is it where we want to be. ... We have some work to do to make sure that the prosperity we do achieve is widely spread."
Regardless of an ideological lens, there's a growing consensus: The United States needs a course correction, and decreasing inequality is crucial.
The rich are clearly getting richer
The French economist Thomas Piketty wrote that, "the incomes of the top 1% collectively made up 11% of national income in 1980, but now constitute above 20% of national income, while the 20% of US national income that was attributable to the bottom 50% in 1980 has fallen to just 12% today."
Additionally, he wrote, "while average pre-tax income for the bottom 50% has stagnated at around $16,000 since 1980, the top 1% has experienced 300% growth in their incomes to approximately $1,340,000 in 2014. This has increased the average earnings differential between the top 1% and the bottom 50% from 27 times in 1980 to 81 times today."
It's not wild, then, to call the moment we're in America's "second Gilded Age," referring to the post-Civil War era of robber barons and industry, where the wealthy kept living better and the poor kept getting worse.
Occupy Wall Street remained relatively small in the wake of the financial crisis, but it did make income and wealth inequality, the language of the 99% and the 1%, a prime topic of discussion. Populist sentiment increased throughout the country, and Vermont's democratic-socialist senator and New York's celebrity real estate billionaire did better in the 2016 election than anyone predicted. The latter, Donald Trump, became president and right-wing rhetoric won, but it also brought with it standard conservative policies, like tax cuts for the rich.
'Abolishing billionaires' isn't as radical as it seems
In his article in the Times and during a followup on Twitter, Manjoo proved to be less into the notion of going so far as to virtually capping how much money Americans could make — not even Ocasio-Cortez has advocated for that —but he is in support of significantly higher taxes on the rich. And you don't have to be a radical for that. There have been many polls that show the majority of Americans at this point are in favor of the same thing.
While "abolish billionaires" is an eye-catching phrase with radical implications, raising taxes to pre-1980s levels is certainly not radical, said Stephanie Sterling, vice president of advocacy and and policy at the Roosevelt Institute.
Sterling told Business Insider that questioning the role of billionaires in our society "is an important contribution to the debate," because it's focusing on structural changes that need to take place, to keep extreme wealth from harming the economy.
What the country needs, she said, is "robust antitrust policy, meaningful limits on stock buybacks, much higher tax rates, and the meaningful restoration of the ability to form and join unions." If getting riled up about billionaires leads voters to elect officials who support those policies, that will successfully correct for what she considers to be the mistakes of the past 40 years.
"I think we're all passengers in a billionaire hijacking," author and critic Anand Giridharadas told Business Insider about how the US got to a boiling point. "We were all drugged on the plane, and these guys are now terrified in the cockpit because they're realizing that in the back there we just woke up."
The billionaires themselves are taking sides
Potential presidential candidates and fellow billionaires Howard Schultz and Michael Bloomberg are not fans of Ocasio-Cortez's call for a 70% tax rate for income above $10 million or Warren's call for a 3% wealth tax for fortunes above $1 billion, and have used phrases like "un-American" and referred to chaos in Venezuela as proof of where these policies would lead.
Investor and progressive activist Nick Hanauer, however, saw this coming. Hanauer, whose fortune must approach $1 billion considering he signed Warren Buffett and Bill Gates' Giving Pledge, famously wrote in Politico a few years ago that "the pitchforks are coming."
He told Business Insider that he's been seriously considering the notion that every billionaire is a policy failure, saying "there can be no doubt that the thrust of the argument is correct — that in a country where so many people are barely getting by, or not getting by at all, an economy that mints billionaires is structurally deficient. There is no reasonable moral or practical justification for these disparities in wealth and income."
Hanauer noted that even with significantly higher taxes, America's wealthiest would remain on top, and their buying power would remain relative.
"I also feel strongly that the Neoliberal contention that me getting immensely wealthy does not harm you, and that your objection to it is just petty jealousy is also wrong," he said. "The richer the rich get, the farther apart the rungs of opportunity are stretched. An economy dominated by a few people with infinite wealth is characterized by arms races for status that benefit no one and harm most people."
|Columbia County's Sleeping Dragon: Part VIII Cache Translate Page||Gossips took a little hiatus from sharing the articles from Margaret Schram's series Columbia County's Sleeping Dragon. Now it's time to resume. Readers will remember that the articles, which appeared in The Independent in the summer and fall of 1988, explored the properties of Lake Albany clay and the problems--historic and potential--created by the clay. My motivation for sharing Schram's research is to make people aware of the problems in the hope that Lake Albany clay, which is a geological factor in Hudson and throughout Columbia County, can be a consideration when proposals for new construction and changes to existing structures come before Hudson's regulatory boards. |
The following article, which is the eighth in the series, was published in The Independent on August 25, 1988.
The Collapse of the Claverack Bridge, February 27, 1918
Adjoining the area of the Knickerbocker Plant disaster, the "Claverack Bridge" crossed the Claverack Creek on what was known as "the Claverack state highway," now Route 23B. The first bridge built over that section of the creek was in the early 1800s, when the Columbia Turnpike was constructed from Hudson to Hillsdale. Prior to that, the route to Claverack was over "Keeler's bridge" off Spook Rock Road (Route 29) and into Claverack by Webb Road. The meadow just west of the creek was frequently flooded, so double bridges were built: one over the creek connected to another over the hollow. For nearly 100 years, until the state took over the highway, two wooden bridges spanned the creek and field.
When the state constructed the concrete structure just about eight years before this event, they built a 240-foot cement slab bridge over the creek and the hollow. It consisted of eight 30-foot spans, and the bridge was supported by piles 65 feet long, driven into the creek. Heavy abutments supported each end.
Might Be Trouble
At the time it was built, "one or two local contractors had pointed out that there might be trouble later on."
Snowfall had been unusually heavy during the winter months of 1918, and a late February thaw sent the Claverack Creek over the banks, filling the hollow next to the bridge with high, swirling waters. The evening of February 27, a heavily loaded truck passed over the bridge and noticed nothing out of the ordinary. Three Hudson residents were returning to Hudson from Claverack shortly before 9 p.m. on that same evening driving "along at a rapid rate in a high powered runabout," when they started over the bridge.
They discovered that the center of the bridge was a "yawning chasm," with two sides holding together at the bottom, each slab at a 45 degree angle.
On the Hudson side, the massive concrete structure had pulled away from the abutment, leaving an opening of over seven feet directly over the surging waters. The driver accelerated and sped down the first incline, flew over the gaping crack and up the inclined western slab. The car was going so fast that when it cleared the top of the tilted slab on the Hudson side, it was suspended momentarily in the air, and then plunged to the ground. The force of the crash catapulted the occupants some 10 to 20 feet. The three escaped serious injury, but the car was totally wrecked.
Two Spans Sank
The bridge section on the western side continued to sink at a rate of six inches an hour. During the next day, it continued to slump until the two spans sank beneath the waters. The abutments on each side were holding, but only the reinforcing steel cables held the sunken spans, estimated to weight 1,000 tons. The bridge was closed to all traffic.
On March 4, a committee from the Towns of Claverack and Greenport met to solve the problem of the bridge. If they waited for the state to repair the damage, it would require official approval and 30 days bidding time, with no bridge in place before summer.
The following day, the combined group drafted a resolution. (This is courtesy of the Town of Greenport minutes of 1918. I have taken the liberty of abridging, especially removing innumerable uses of "whereas" and "the said.") "The gap must be filled by commissioners of both Towns with consent of both Towns--To make a fill by both Towns is legal and both Towns take the responsibility of paying half."
The resolution read: "The Towns of Claverack and Greenport are now jointly liable to make and maintain a bridge across the Claverack Creek. On the 27th day of February 1918 the western portion of the bridge from the extremely westerly abutment, extending to the second abutment easterly had collapsed and fallen down by means of a freshet or otherwise, and it is therefore wholly destroyed and impassable."
The resolution went on to describe the inspections and "also the question of converting the space spanned by the fallen portion into a solid approach. . . . Resolved that to meet the emergency it is not expedient to build the fallen portion as a bridge--but to extend the westerly approach to meet the portion still intact."
The solid fill over the hollow (and the sunken bridge) was to be 34 feet wide, 12 feet deep, and 54 feet long. The roadway was to be of stone and cinders and level from the existing road to the bridge span over the creek.
An expenditure of $800 was approved by both boards, but the bid came to $944, which included guardrails on each side of the new section. That amount was authorized. The work was done as soon as the flood waters receded, with plans for a more permanent roadway "when the frost has left the ground."
On March 22, 1918, the new road was opened to traffic. "Users are cautioned to proceed slowly over the bridge. . . . The Towns, however, assume no liability pending the completion of the repair and legal opening of the closed highway."
The next time you drive over that bridge remember that, for a least 50 feet beyond the western edge, there once was another bridge, and that its remains most likely lie deep under today's highway.
Again residents blamed quicksand for the collapse, but it was Lake Albany clay up to its usual tricks. Geologists reported that the stratified gravel near the surface slipped on the saturated clay beneath. The weight of the bridge, combined with the pressure of the flood waters against the piers, caused the piers to slip and fail; the two spans of the bridge were carried down. There was little or no damage to the concrete slabs themselves; the problems originated in unstable foundation of the bridge.
My questions today are: Has the bridge and the surrounding area been stabilized so that an event such as this cannot recur?
Between August 1953 and May 1954, New York State "completely rebuilt the "Claverack Bridge." It was widened from a narrow two-lane structure to the present width. A great deal of time was spent in sinking adequate pilings to hold the weight of the bridge.
COPYRIGHT 1988 MARGARET SCHRAMThe bridge on Route 23B was most recently repaired in the summer of 2013, when the bridge deck was replaced with concrete, the steel beneath the bridge was repaired, and new railings were installed. In my search to confirm the nature of the repairs made in 2013, I stumbled upon this picture on the Town of Claverack website, which shows the bridge in September 1938, after it had been washed away during a hurricane.

Carlson then began a discussion with Cornell University Law Professor Robert Hockett, who advised Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the Green New Deal.

He asserted that "AOC has never said anything like that" before accusing Carlson of referring to some "doctored document that somebody other than us has been circulating." Carlson informed Hockett that he got the information from a backgrounder on the Green New Deal released from Ocasio-Cortez's office. Hockett maintained that she never called for the government to pay people who are "unwilling to work" and Carlson proceeded to thank Hockett for correcting him. Carlson then asked Hockett to address "the idea that we're going to build enough light rail to make airplanes unnecessary," an idea that Hockett also dismissed; telling Carlson "I don't know where you got that, either." As it turns out, both provisions brought up by Carlson are included on a now-deleted fact sheet and FAQ list from Ocasio-Cortez's website.|

|Re: Rebalancing advice for 83 yr old woman Cache Translate Page|
For comparison the Vanguard Target Retirement Income fund is 30% stocks and 70% bonds so you are just bit more conservative than that, which could make sense because you are older than many people who would be using that fund.
https://investor.vanguard.com/mutual-fu ... view/vtinx
I think at a high level what you have is very reasonable even if it might not be what I would use if I was setting up a portfolio from scratch.
If this is in a taxable account there would likely be some capital gains to pay if you tried to move the money around to make some small improvement in the mutual fund selections. That likely would not be worthwhile so leaving it the way that it is would be pretty reasonable if this is in a taxable account.
If it is all in retirement accounts where taxes are not an issue then using the Vanguard Target Retirement Income fund would be a reasonable choice too.
There is a lot that we do not know about your situation like your tax bracket, if you have have a pension or a lot of home equity, or if these investments are in a taxable account or a retirement account. That makes it pretty hard to give you suggestions on how your might fine tune your investments.
The main thing I would be concerned about is that with four mutual funds it may be difficult to manage ten years from now when you are 93 and may not be as financially capable as you are now. When you start spending the money you might want to first sell off all of the two bond funds when you need money. Once those are sold off you would only have the Wellesly and the money market account which would be easier to manage.

Guadalcanal é uma das ilhas do arquipélago de Salomão, situando-se na parte meridional deste, no Pacífico Ocidental, não longe da Austrália. Antiga colónia britânica, as ilhas achavam-se ocupadas pelos Japoneses na sequência do ataque surpresa a Pearl Harbour, Hawai, na madrugada de 7 de dezembro de 1941. Depois das batalhas de Midway e do mar de Coral, no primeiro semestre de 1942, os Aliados, encabeçados pelos norte-americanos, mas integrando forças da Austrália e da Nova Zelândia, apostaram tudo numa grande ofensiva pelo ar, mar e terra contra o avanço inexorável das tropas japonesas no Pacífico Sul. As matérias-primas australianas (carvão, minerais metálicos, trigo, lã) eram o zénite da cobiça nipónica. A fraqueza e derrotas sucessivas dos Britânicos em Singapura e dos Holandeses na Indonésia abriam as portas da Austrália a Tóquio. Era imperativo estrangular a ofensiva japonesa e virar a guerra, na direção do Japão.
A ilha de Guadalcanal foi a escolhida, a par das ilhas vizinhas de Florida, Gavutu, Tanambogo e Tulagi, para se inverter o curso dos acontecimentos, numa operação denominada Watchtower ("atalaia", "torre de vigia"). Entre 7 de agosto de 1942 e 9 de fevereiro de 1943, 60 000 tropas [ ]de ar, terra e mar dos EUA, Austrália e Nova Zelândia (além de naturais de Tonga e das Ilhas Salomão), comandadas pelos vice-almirantes Robert Ghormley e Frank J. Fletcher (comando tático), o Major-General marine Alexander Vandegrift (comando das operações terrestres), secundados pelos almirantes William Halsey e Richmond K. Turner e pelo general marine Alexander Patch, lutaram contra cerca de 37 000 (ou 30 000) nipónicos, comandados pelo general Hyakutake Haruyoshi (Exército Imperial) e pelo almirante Gunichi Mikawa (Armada Imperial), além dos alimirantes Isoroku Yamamoto e Nishizo Tsukahara e do vice-almirante Jinichi Kusaka.
As baixas foram enormes do lado japonês, saldando-se em cerca de 25 000 mortos em terra, 3500 no mar, 1200 em combates aéreos e 1000 prisioneiros, não esquecendo cerca de 40 navios afundados e perto de 900 aviões abatidos. Do lado dos vencedores, os Aliados, cerca de 1800 militares tombaram em combates terrestres, quase 5000 no mar e aproximadamente 400 no ar, além de 30 navios e mais de 600 aviões abatidos.
A posição assaltada foi a japonesa, cujos efetivos se entrincheiraram nas referidas ilhas, mais em Guadalcanal, onde estavam, à data do começo das operações, a construir um aeroporto, que teria como objetivo a interceção de comunicações e ligações aeronavais entre os EUA e a Austrália. Num ataque relâmpago, o aeroporto em construção foi atacado e ocupado pelos Aliados, passando a chamar-se de Henderson Field, sem que tivesse havido grande resistência. O que parecia uma operação fácil e rápida logo se revelou sangrenta e delicada, pois o contra-ataque japonês foi fulminante: a 8 de agosto de 1942, no dia seguinte à tomada do aeroporto, deu-se a mais importante batalha naval depois de Pearl Harbour, no Pacífico, na Segunda Guerra Mundial. Os Aliados foram derrotados na chamada batalha da ilha de Savo. Os Aliados perdiam o controlo da rota de apoio logístico a Henderson Field, mas este aeroporto não caiu nas mãos dos Japoneses, o que fez o contra-ataque destes um insucesso. Mantida a pista de aviação nas mãos dos Aliados, sustida a contraofensiva nipónica, chegou a vez daqueles, de atacar e banir a ocupação japonesa de toda a ilha e outras circundantes. O poder de fogo e a diferença na capacidade de abastecimento, de tecnologia, além do número de efetivos, potenciaram o decurso favorável aos EUA e seus aliados.
Uma vitória dura e sangrenta, que se tornou o teatro decisivo da campanha do Pacífico, pois passou-se de uma lógica de defesa e contra-ataque dos Aliados para uma estratégia ofensiva e de combinação inter-armas para impor derrotas sucessivas ao Japão, conquistando-se ilha por ilha, atol por atol.
Guadalcanal foi assim o ponto de viragem da Guerra do Pacífico, como o foi a Normandia na Europa ou El-Alamein em África.
Esta campanha militar tornou-se num dos ícones históricos e de memória dos EUA em relação à Segunda Guerra Mundial, só comparável a Pearl Harbour, Iwo Jima ou Okinawa, para não falar em Hiroshima e Nagasáki, entre outros marcos decisivos da vitória sobre o Império do Sol Nascente.
Além da literatura e dos ensaios de história militar e contemporânea, além das memórias de ex-combatentes, destacam-se as produções fílmicas, desde logo do final da guerra, como Flying Leathernecks, de Nicholas Ray (1951) e, mais recentemente, uma da obras-primas do cinema contemporâneo, The Thin Red Line, de Terence Malick (1998), onde se destaca o quotidiano, palmo a palmo, da batalha terrestre de Guadalcanal.

|Festival di Sanremo, la finale in diretta Elisa da brividi canta «Vedrai vedrai» Cache Translate Page||Segui in diretta la finale del festival di Sanremo. Chi vincerà l’edizione numero 69?|
L’ultimo atto di un festival indimenticabile. Parte la finalissima di Sanremo e L’Eco come sempre vi propone la diretta della serata. Chi vincerà?
23.30 - Elisa, altra super ospite della serata, anta «Anche fragile» il suo ultimo successo. Poi duetta con Baglioni con brano di Luigi Tenco «Vedrai vedrai». Standing ovation anche per lei.
23 - Ecco la Virginia Raffaele che il pubblico aspettava: elegantissima, propone un medley travolgente in cui presta voce e mimica a Malika Ayane, Patty Pravo, Giusy Ferreri, Fiorella Mannoia e, naturalmente, Ornella Vanoni...«però gratis mai più», conclude, riprendendo il monito dell’artista alla Rai sull’ospitata «aggratis». L’Ariston è in tutto piedi per lei: in prima fila, anche l’amministratore delegato della Rai Fabrizio Salini, il presidente Marcello Foa e la direttrice di Rai1 Teresa De Santis.
22.50 - Come alla fine di ogni esibizione, Maurizio Carucci, frontman degli Ex-Otago, è sceso in platea per abbracciare alla fine della canzone una fortunata della platea.
Ma stasera seduta tra le prime file dell’Ariston c’era la fidanzata Martina. E l’abbraccio si è concluso con un bacio appassionato.
22.31 - È ancora standing ovation per Loredana Bertè all’Ariston. La sua performance esplosiva in Cosa ti aspetti da me è entusiasma il pubblico.
22.17 - Eros Ramazzotti, super ospite della serata, incanta con la sua voce. Prima canta «Vita ce n’è», il suo ultimo singolo. Poi un classicone: «Adesso tu». Prima di salutare, è arrivata anche la star portoricana Luis Fonsi, che con Despacito vanta il numero più alto di streaming e views della storia. Duetto Per le strade una canzone, sempre dall’ultimo disco. «Grazie per la musica di questi anni», lo ha salutato il padrone di casa.
22 - Incursione a sorpresa di Renato Pozzetto e de Lo Stato Sociale, in gara lo scorso anno al festival, all’Ariston. La band e l’attore, davanti all’entrata del teatro, hanno intonato «E la vita, la vita», cavallo di battaglia di Cochi e Renato.
21.56 - Dopo l’omaggio al Quartetto Cetra, stasera l’avanspettacolo si fa spazio sul palco dell’Ariston con Camminando sotto la pioggia. «Vogliamo ricordare Erminio Macario», spiega Baglioni, e poi canta e balla con Virginia Raffaele (stavolta è lei in tailleur pantalone bianco) e con Claudio Bisio. Ma l’ombrello di Bisio non si apre e l’attore finisce sotto la pioggia.
«Gli sta bene», chiosa Baglioni. «Noi siamo del centro, lui è del nord, parla venti volte più veloce di noi. E poi secondo me di Claudio ce n’era già uno che bastava». Virginia. «Stai diventando di nuovo dittatore». Baglioni: «Fosse anche per l’ultima volta, ma sì».
21.37 - Tocca ai Negrita e poi a Ultimo, a dispetto del nome, uno dei favoriti per la vittoria finale. Il suo video ha già un milione di visualizzazioni su Youtube. Lunghissimo applauso del pubblico dell’Ariston tributato a lui e alla sua I tuoi particolari. Il giovane, che l’anno scorso vinse tra le Nuove Proposte, è da tempo il favorito dei bookmaker alla vittoria finale.
21.25 - I primi tre a esibirsi sul palco dell’Ariston sono Daniele Silvestri con Rancore, Anna Tatangelo e Ghemon. La canzone di Ghemon è stata particolarmente apprezzata nei primi giorni anche se in questa esibizione il rapper è stato un po’ tradito dall’emozione.
21.12 - «Nessuno è perfetto», dice Claudio Baglioni citando la celeberrima battuta di A qualcuno piace caldo. «E in effetti non lo sai mai se hai fatto bene o male, se c’è stato troppo spettacolo o troppo concorso. Io vi dico e vi giuro che abbiamo fatto tutto il possibile perché restasse nel solco di quello dell’anno passato».
Per Baglioni, «ha vinto la musica, hanno vinto le parole, le speranze di tanti giovani artisti e di altri meno giovani che confidano in quello che accadrà domani e nel vostro affetto, nella vostra attenzione, considerazione, anche critiche. Spero che questo solco non venga smesso, è nello statuto e nella costituzione del festival della canzone italiana. Spero che rimanga tale - conclude, usando parole che fanno pensare a un passaggio di testimone - fino al prossimo Sanremo e a tutti quelli che arriveranno».
21 - Claudio Baglioni, look total white, apre la serata finale di Sanremo con E adesso la pubblicità, con i ballerini muniti di telecomando e maschere con gli «smile».
Eros Ramazzotti, con Luis Fonsi, ed Elisa sono gli ospiti attesi durante la finalissima. Ramazzotti torna all’Ariston a 35 anni dalla sua vittoria, nella categoria Nuove Proposte, con Terra Promessa. Il festival è stato il trampolino di lancio per il cantautore, che si farà accompagnare, per un momento speciale del suo set, da Luis Fonsi, la star mondiale di Despacito che ha conquistato più streaming e più views nella storia. Insieme duetteranno sulle note di «Per le strade una canzone», brano contenuto nell’album Vita ce n’è, uscito a novembre. Di rigore anche l’esibizione in coppia con Claudio Baglioni su uno dei successi di Eros. Dopo la partecipazione al festival, Ramazzotti tornerà live, con un tour mondiale al via il 17 febbraio da Monaco, che arriverà in Italia il 2 marzo.
Ultima grande voce femminile all’Ariston Elisa, che porterà il suo ultimo singolo «Anche fragile» e non si sottrarrà alla legge dei duetti con il padrone di casa.
I 24 Campioni ripropongono il loro brano in versione originale e a decidere è un mix tra televoto (50%), sala stampa (30%) ed esperti (20%). I primi tre classificati andranno al giudizio finale per la proclamazione del vincitore.
Questo l’ordine di uscita degli artisti in gara stasera, gran finale del Festival di Sanremo per la proclamazione del vincitore: Daniele Silvestri, Anna Tatangelo, Ghemon, Negrita, Ultimo, Nek, Loredana Bertè, Francesco Renga, Mahmood, Ex-Otago, Il Volo, Paola Turci, Zen Circus, Patty Pravo con Briga, Arisa, Irama, Achille Lauro, Nino D’Angelo e Livio Cori, Federica Carta e Shade, Simone Cristicchi, Enrico Nigiotti, Boomdabash, Einar, Motta

|Croswell Opera House Stages One-woman Play AGLIO E OLIO in Blissfield Home Cache Translate Page|
The Blissfield home of Frank and Brenda Baker will be the site of an immersive theater experience produced by the Croswell Opera House this weekend.
A one-woman play titled AGLIO E OLIO will be staged in the Bakers' kitchen Thursday through Sunday, Feb. 14-17. In the play, the narrator tells the story of her father's final days while preparing the food that was an integral part of her upbringing in an Italian family.
The semi-autobiographical play was first developed by actress Meg Persichetti and film director Laura Gilkey, who is an Adrian native now living in New Jersey. In the Croswell's production, the character originated by Persichetti is played by Maria Portaro-Mohler of Lambertville. The play is directed by John MacNaughton.
"It's an intimate remembering of the events surrounding her father's passing," MacNaughton said.
The play aims to create a sense of community among the people who attend by having them sample the dishes prepared by the narrator at the end of the show.
"Food brings people together," Portaro-Mohler said. "Even if you have nothing in common, you now have something in common because you're sharing this meal."
Because the play ties the narrator's childhood memories together with the story of her father's death, Portaro-Mohler said she hopes the play pushes viewers to remember the good times they had with people they have lost in their own lives.
Setting the play in a kitchen is a reminder, MacNaughton said, that theater takes many forms.
"Theater doesn't have to happen in a building with a proscenium and a curtain," he said.
"Aglio e Olio" runs from Feb 14-17, with performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 6 p.m. and a Sunday performance at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 each and must be purchased in advance, and directions to the home will be provided at time of purchase.
To purchase tickets or for more information, go to croswell.org or call 517-264-7469.

|Cuando en Canarias hubo dos Agaetes Cache Translate Page||En las últimas décadas del siglo XIX existía en la ciudad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria un barrio llamado de «Agaete Chico», situado en la orilla del mar al norte del Muelle de Las Palmas. En lo que fue antaño la calle Venegas se concentraba muy desordenadamente una serie de casillas o casetas de madera de dudoso buen gusto.
El ayuntamiento mandó inspeccionar la zona, reconociendo que este núcleo representaba un peligro para la salud pública, por la aglomeración de viviendas a la orilla del mar, al no disponer de las mínimas condiciones de higiene; a pesar de hallarse situadas en lo que se consideraba el punto más sano de la población, bañadas por las frescas brisas del mar y asentadas sobre un subsuelo permeable.
No obstante, el lugar tenía sus inconvenientes, pues el acceso al mismo no era nada fácil, más bien estaba lleno de dificultades, pues para penetrar entre las barracas, rodeadas de estercoleros, donde se aglomeraban centenares de seres humanos, era muy angosto ya que apenas se hallaban lugares de paso que permitieran el cruce entre dos personas.
Los tabiques de separación de estas construcciones de madera se tocaban, y las que tenían dos pisos presentaban por todo aislamiento un plano horizontal de tablas mal unidas, de tal modo que el aire de una «vivienda» pasaba a la contigua, sin tener que atravesar el estrecho pasadizo, constituyendo una atmósfera confinada e insana, que únicamente podía compararse a la de los malos buques de vela anclados en el puerto.
Se hacinaban más de 300 personas que vivían dell menudeo que facilitaba el cercano muelle de Las Palmas
En cada una de aquellas viviendas, cuya capacidad sólo permitía la estancia de una o dos personas a lo máximo, llegaban a vivir familias de muchos hijos, cuyas «miasmas humanas», decían los miembros de las comisiones de Higiene y Obras, no les asfixiaban «por la costumbre» establecida entre ellos por su género de vida, además de por el hecho de que la brisa del mar podía penetrar en las permeables paredes; lo que también se consideraba un inconveniente, ya que –decían– traspasaban los endebles tabiques, arrastrando hacia la población todos los gérmenes que eran nocivos para las personas saludables.
Además, se tenía el temor de que una epidemia (con una enfermedad terrible) pudiera desarrollarse en un terreno tan propicio. Si sucediera así, en un caso tan desgraciado, la Administración sólo podía emplear un medio para extinguir este foco de infección. Ese medio, que destruye todo, se decía, era el fuego, al reducir a cenizas casas y muebles, dándose muerte a los seres «infinitamente pequeños que vencían al hombre por su número».
Pero eso dejaría a muchas familias sin hogar, sin vestidos ni recursos, pues todo habría que sacrificarlo al fuego, debiendo el Municipio indemnizar una a una casas y haciendas, sin que pudiera alegar la suprema razón de «salus populi» por ser el hecho previsto y consentido por espacio de largos años contra toda prudencia. Por lo tanto, urgía que el municipio, para evitar grandes males, asumiera su responsabilidad llevando a cabo la urbanización de ese barrio, según los planos que reunieran las condiciones legales.
Búsqueda por mujeres y niños de agua a un pilar ubicado en Muelle Las Palmas - Fedac
En la sesión ordinaria del Ayuntamiento de primero de junio de 1892 se acordó que el informe pasara a estudio de la Comisión de Obras con encargo de que, en vista de los antecedentes, emitiera su informe con urgencia. El ocho de junio la Comisión de Obras determinó que era necesario urbanizar la Marina del barrio de los Arenales en el lugar conocido como «Agaete Chico», haciendo desaparecer la amorfa agrupación de casetas de madera allí hacinadas, con grave perjuicio de la higiene pública y «en desdoro de la policía y cultura de esta ciudad».
Los dueños de las casetas no tenían derecho a indemnización alguna, pues cuando se les otorgó el permiso para levantarlas se hizo constar esa condición por parte de la Corporación. Y así rezaba en los permisos otorgados desde el año 1881 en adelante. Formaban parte de la comisión Agustín del Castillo Westerling, Juan Penichet Morales y José Melián Marrero.
Casetas de madera
En el barrio del «Agaete Chico» existían 49 casetas de madera, casi todas mal construidas y pegadas unas a otras, dejando apenas el espacio para pasar una persona entre ellas, formando un laberinto que iba desde la costa, en la Marina del Muelle de Las Palmas en paralelo a la calle Venegas hasta la altura donde después se construiría la Comandancia de Marina.
Allí se hacinaban más de trescientas personas aproximadamente, sin oficio ni beneficio, que vivían de la vida y del mercado al menudeo que facilitaba el cercano trajín del muelle de Las Palmas. El nombre de «Agaete Chico» lo había adquirido en honor a los habitantes del barrio, que en su mayoría procedían de aquel lugar de la isla.
Nombres de aquella época
Entre los propietarios de aquellas casuchas (uno de los primeros barrios de chabolas de la ciudad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria) se hallaban personas conocidas de aquella parte de la isla, como Rafael González, Rosa Real Cartaya, Antonio Medina Ramos, José Judas Rodríguez, Jerónimo Carvajal, Miguel Castro, Miguel Marrero, Jerónimo Saavedra, Sebastiana González, Domingo Dámaso, María Rosario (alias La Bruja), Antonio Martín Rodríguez, Rafael de la Nuez García, Francisco Jiménez Godoy, Francisco Medina Jiménez, Eduardo García, Antonio González Quevedo, Antonio de la Nuez, Tiburcio Miranda, Cirilo García Sarmiento, Miguel Curbelo, María Caballero, Juan Vila, Agustín Ortega y Francisco Martínez, algunos de los cuales tenían más de una caseta en el barrio.|

|15,5 miljoonan täysosuma jaettiin ennätyspitkän voitottoman putken jälkeen – Veikkaus: näin harvinaista se on Cache Translate Page||Illan arvonnassa löytyi vain yksi täysosuma, joka oli pelattu Lohjalla.|
|Sanni on kommentoinut artikkelia Herkkiksille: Dermosil Sensitive Cache Translate Page||<blockquote>Lempeästi haluan huomauttaa, että allerginenkin kuluttaja voi hyvin kaivata elämyksellisyyttä, mutta joutuu usein hyväksymään tosiasian, ettei tuotteita valmisteta sellaisiksi. Ja on toki tyytyväinen siitä, että ylipäätään on tuote, joka sopii.</blockquote>
Ilman muuta, muotoilin sanani vähän huonosti. Halusin sanoa, että allerginen varmasti priorisoi tuotteen hellävaraisuutta ja herkälle iholle sopivuutta elämyksellisyyden yli, koska tilanne jo valmiiksi "vaatii" sen. Pahoittelut huonosta ilmaisusta.
<blockquote>Mutta nyt rupesi enemmänkin mietityttämään, onko herkkisten tuotteet vähemmän viimeisteltyjä koostumukseltaan sen vuoksi, ettei se yksinkertaisesti onnistu käytettävissä olevilla raaka-aineilla? </blockquote>
Totuus on se, että mitä vähemmän ainesosia, sitä vähemmän herkistävää potentiaalia. Ja mitä vähemmän raaka-aineta "kakussa", sitä yksinkertaisempi kakku, vaikka voi maistuakin hyvältä ja siinä mielessä ajaa asiansa. Voiteista ja shampoista ei saada ylellisen liukuvia, kermaisia, kuohkeita ja samettisia yksinkertaisen kakun reseptillä, vaan siihen vaaditaan enemmän ainesosia. Jos katsoo minkä tahansa ylellisen tuntuisen shampoon inciä, siellä on takuuvarmasti kymmeniä ainesosia. (Toki 'ylellisyys' on myös subjektiivinen kokemus ja ehkä simppelimpikin shampoo voi jolle kulle tuntua luksukselta.) Itse en ole koskaan kohdannut ns. luksuksen tuntuista shampoota jossa olisi yhtä riisuttu inci kuin herkän ihon ehdoilla formuloiduissa tuotteissa. Tuoksukin tietysti tuo oman osansa elämyksellisyyteen, mutta kyllä tuote voi olla formuloitu ihanan tuntuiseksi ilman tuoksuakin. Moni kokee esimerkiksi hajusteettoman Cliniquen koostumukset elämyksellisinä verrattuna marketin tuotteisiin.
<blockquote>Onko muuten kenelläkään mielessä tuotevinkkiä tuoksuttomasta kasvovedestä, jonka koostumus olisi enemmän kuin ns. perus? </blockquote>
Mä palaan tähän huomenna, tänään ei enää ole aikaa kun täytyy rientää ystäväohjelmaan :) Mutta ehkö joku muu ehtii vastaamaan tällä välillä..?|

|Comment on Tolstoy the Snob. by Dmitry Pruss Cache Translate Page||<I>downmarket</I>
I don't know the history of it, but I would assume that a conqueror would rarely put an esteemed title to a much wider use. Perhaps the loss of princely importance predated the Ottomans?
In the Siberian Czardom (Khanate), the next-highest noble rank after Khan was apparently that of a chieftain of a tribal band. So within any tribe, they would have been a number of princes, with hardly a village worth of subjects. They are called knyaz'ki, "petty princes" in the documents of XV-XVI c., a title which in XIX c. was also used to tribal chiefs of Africa
(LH - btw my comment is stuck in moderation because of a link to LH thread about raznochintsy, quite relevant here IMVHO)|
|Comment on Tolstoy the Snob. by nemanja Cache Translate Page||Re: Dmitry's comment about the proliferation of kniazes and various degrees of nobility
Funnily enough, in Bosnia and Serbia "knez" drifted downmarket, semantically speaking, as it was the title used for the village "mayor" during the Ottoman era. Each village had a knez, which was an elected position though it typically went to the wealthiest guy in town -and then there was an obor-knez who was in charge of all the knezes in his nahija (a district roughtly equivalent to a county, ie comprising several villages), though his title was hereditary so you could say it was a kind of extremely minor nobility. Nowadays "Seoski knez" - ie "the village knez" - is mostly used as an epithet directed at overambitious politicians and the like.|
|Comment on Parks on Translation Again. by nemanja Cache Translate Page||gwenllian, I don't have the book handy but it was stuff like "G. Frodo, znad'te ka' smo bili..." (btw - G.Frodo for either Mister or Master Frodo is wrong - čika/ujko Frodo I think conveys the social relation better). It sticks out because it's such a bold choice for a relatively minor problem - it would have been far better to just ignore the issue. And yeah as you said, the real issue is not so much how Sam talks, but how to map English social relations to the Western Balkans where societies are simply structured differently. I agree that it would be tempting to use a regional accent which in BCS definitely has connotations of something like class, but that would also bring in contemporary Balkan politics into Middle Earth.
BTW, the other thing that sticks in mind is translation of proper names, a topic so fraught with Tolkien he wrote an entire guide for translator, and rightfully so - in this particular edition, Eowyn became "Jovajna", Arwen "Aruena", even Galadriel became "Galadrijela" - cringworthy stuff. In his defense I can't think of a single woman's name in BCS that does not end in -a so maybe he felt he had to. The men's names were unchanged except for Merry who became "Veseli" which actually works okay as a nickname. But of course Boromir and Faramir esp. are names that sound native to BCS already.
Some translations are inspired - Okrug for Shire, "Bagremova Ulica" for Bag End, Gramzi-Baginsi for Sackville-Bagginses, but most of those are inherited from the translator of the Hobbit who truly did an incredible job (on a far less challenging book, to be sure) - he was especially great with a lot of the creature names, creatively repurposing "vilenjak" for elf, "polušan" for halfling, "div" for troll, and wisely deciding to stick with ork, orci (though goblins do become bauci, but the double naming exists in English too).
Finally I should probably add that translating LOTR pre-internet and into a language and literature lacking a fantasy genre or its obvious antecedents from which to draw style and vocabulary is truly a daunting task for even the best translator, which must have taken years to complete. I enjoy my nitpicks but ultimately I have him to thank for introducing me to Tolkien, however rough the introduction.|

|Terrorisme en plein Paris : La Nouvelle Librairie attaquée par une centaine d’antifas Cache Translate Page||
Communiqué de La Nouvelle Librairie
Samedi 9 février 2019 – La Nouvelle Librairie, 11 rue de Médicis, Paris : près d’une centaine d’antifas armés et casqués ont attaqué, caillassé et dégradé la Nouvelle Librairie aux cris de « Paris, Paris, Antifas, la Nouvelle Librairie, c’est les antisémites, qui invitent Zemmour » (SIC), vers 14 h 35, ce samedi 9 février. Seule, la présence d’esprit du libraire a permis d’éviter un drame humain plus lourd en faisant sortir en urgence la petite dizaine de clients, sous les jets de bouteilles et de blocs de goudron. Les dégâts matériels sont d’ores et déjà très importants : vitrines cassées, porte d’entrée dégradée, etc. C’est la deuxième fois en moins de six mois que la Nouvelle Librairie est ainsi la cible de dégradations et d’intimidations.
« A 14 h 35, deux gilets jaunes nous ont prévenus qu’un groupe d’antifas était en train de descendre la rue Médicis pour casser, détaille le libraire encore sous le choc de plusieurs coups de tonfa (matraque télescopique) sur la tête, assenés par derrière par un Antifa cagoulé. Nos vidéos montrent une centaine d’antifas faisant le siège de la librairie. Plusieurs dizaines d’entre eux ont jeté et éparpillé nos livres sur le trottoir et ont tenté de s’introduire dans la librairie. Dix minutes après cette première attaque, qui a été stoppée par une dizaine de CRS, c’est un homme en rage qui a attaqué la devanture de la librairie à la pelle. Nous avons eu l’honneur à ce moment-là d’être protégée par une dizaine de gilets jaunes, dont un qui m’a dit : « Je vous boycotte, mais je ne veux pas que les antifas cassent votre librairie ».
Communiqué de Synthèse nationale :
Une fois de plus les terroristes d'extrême gauche ont attaqué la Nouvelle Librairie. Grâce au courage et au sang-froid du jeune libraire, le pire a sans douté été évité. Nous tenons ce soir a exprimer notre entière solidarité avec l'équipe de la Nouvelle Librairie. Il va bientôt être temps d'en finir avec les bandes armées du Système que sont les "antifascistes"...

|Cardinale Müller: “Ecco il mio appello a difesa della vera fede” Cache Translate Page|
Non è certo un caso che si moltiplichino appelli e riaffermazioni dei principi della fede cattolica. Ora appare anche quello del card. Gerhard L. Müller, già Prefetto della Congregazione per la dottrina della fede dal 2012-2017. Non mi soffermo sull'analisi; ma lo metto e disposizione e lo esamineremo insieme. Qui la petizione di sostegno lanciata da LifeSiteNews.
Manifesto della Fede
«Non sia turbato il vostro cuore!» (Gv 14,1)
1. Dio uno e trino, rivelato in Gesù Cristo
L’epitome della fede di tutti i cristiani risiede nella confessione della Santissima Trinità. Siamo diventati discepoli di Gesù, figli e amici di Dio, attraverso il battesimo nel nome del Padre e del Figlio e dello Spirito Santo. La differenza delle tre persone nell’unità divina (254) segna una differenza fondamentale nella fede in Dio e nell’immagine dell’uomo rispetto alle altre religioni. Riconosciuto Gesù Cristo, i fantasmi scompaiono. Egli è vero Dio e vero uomo, incarnato nel seno della Vergine Maria per opera dello Spirito Santo. Il Verbo fatto carne, il Figlio di Dio è l’unico Salvatore del mondo (679) e l’unico mediatore tra Dio e gli uomini (846). Per questo, la prima lettera di Giovanni si riferisce a colui che nega la sua divinità come all’anticristo (1Gv 2,22), poiché Gesù Cristo, Figlio di Dio, dall’eternità è un unico essere con Dio, suo Padre (663). È con chiara determinazione che occorre affrontare la ricomparsa di antiche eresie che in Gesù Cristo vedevano solo una brava persona, un fratello e un amico, un profeta e un esempio di vita morale. Egli è prima di tutto la Parola che era con Dio ed è Dio, il Figlio del Padre, che ha preso la nostra natura umana per redimerci e che verrà a giudicare i vivi e i morti. Lui solo adoriamo in unità con il Padre e lo Spirito Santo come unico e vero Dio (691).
2. La Chiesa
Gesù Cristo ha fondato la Chiesa come segno visibile e strumento di salvezza, che sussiste nella Chiesa cattolica (816). Diede alla sua Chiesa, che «è nata dal cuore trafitto di Cristo morto sulla croce» (766), una struttura sacramentale che rimarrà fino al pieno compimento del Regno (765). Cristo, capo, e i credenti come membra del corpo sono una mistica persona (795), per questo motivo la chiesa è santa, poiché Cristo, unico mediatore, l’ha costituita sulla terra come organismo visibile e continuamente la sostiene (771). Attraverso di essa l’opera redentrice di Cristo diventa presente nel tempo e nello spazio con la celebrazione dei SS. Sacramenti, soprattutto nel Sacrificio eucaristico, la S. Messa (1330). La Chiesa trasmette con l’autorità di Cristo la divina rivelazione, «che si estende a tutti gli elementi di dottrina, ivi compresa la morale, senza i quali le verità salvifiche della fede non possono essere custodite, esposte o osservate» (2035).
3. L’Ordine sacramentaleLa Chiesa è in Gesù Cristo il sacramento universale della salvezza (776). Essa non riflette sé stessa ma la luce di Cristo, che splende sul suo volto, e ciò avvenire solo quando il punto di riferimento non è l’opinione della maggioranza né lo spirito dei tempi, ma piuttosto la Verità rivelata in Gesù Cristo, che ha affidato alla Chiesa cattolica la pienezza di grazia e di verità (819): Egli stesso è presente nei sacramenti della Chiesa.
La Chiesa non è un’associazione creata dall’uomo, la cui struttura può essere modificata dai suoi membri a proprio piacimento: essa è di origine divina. «È Cristo stesso l’origine del ministero nella Chiesa. Egli l’ha istituita, le ha dato autorità e missione, orientamento e fine» (874). Ancora oggi è valido l’ammonimento dell’Apostolo secondo cui maledetto è chiunque proclami un altro Vangelo, «anche noi stessi, oppure un angelo dal cielo» (Gal 1,8). La mediazione della fede è inscindibilmente legata alla credibilità umana dei suoi annunziatori: essi, in alcuni casi, hanno abbandonato quanti erano stati loro affidati, turbandoli e danneggiando gravemente la loro fede. Per loro se realizza la parola della Scrittura: «non si sopporterà più la sana dottrina, ma, pur di udire qualcosa, gli uomini si circonderanno di maestri secondo i propri capricci» (2 Tim 4,3-4).
Compito del Magistero della Chiesa nei riguardi del popolo di Dio è quello di «salvaguardarlo dalle deviazioni e dai cedimenti» affinché possa «professare senza errore l’autentica fede» (890). Questo è particolarmente vero per quanto riguarda i sette sacramenti. La S. Eucaristia è «fonte e culmine di tutta la vita cristiana» (1324). Il sacrificio eucaristico, in cui Cristo ci coinvolge nel suo sacrificio della croce, è finalizzato alla più intima unione con Lui (1382). Per questo la Sacra Scrittura ammonisce riguardo alle condizioni per ricevere la santa Comunione: «chiunque mangia il pane o beve il calice del Signore in modo indegno, sarà colpevole del corpo e del sangue del Signore» (1Cor 11, 27), dunque «Chi è consapevole di aver commesso un peccato grave, deve ricevere il sacramento della Riconciliazione prima di accedere alla Comunione» (1385). Dalla logica interna del sacramento si capisce che i divorziati risposati civilmente, il cui matrimonio sacramentale davanti a Dio è ancora valido, come anche tutti quei cristiani che non sono in piena comunione con la fede cattolica e pure tutti coloro che non sono debitamente disposti, non ricevano la santa Eucaristia fruttuosamente (1457), perché in tal modo essa non li conduce alla salvezza. Metterlo in evidenza corrisponde a un’opera di misericordia spirituale.
Il riconoscimento dei peccati nella santa confessione almeno una volta all’anno è uno dei precetti della Chiesa (2042). Quando i credenti non confessano più i loro peccati ricevendone l’assoluzione, si rende vana la salvezza portata da Cristo, Egli infatti si è fatto uomo per redimerci dai nostri peccati. Il potere del perdono, che il Risorto ha conferito agli Apostoli e ai loro successori nell’Episcopato e nel Sacerdozio, rimette i peccati gravi e veniali commessi dopo il Battesimo. L’attuale pratica della confessione evidenzia come la coscienza dei credenti non sia oggi sufficientemente formata. La misericordia di Dio ci è data, affinché adempiamo i suoi comandamenti per conformaci alla sua santa volontà e non per evitare la chiamata alla conversione (1458).
«È il sacerdote che continua l’opera di redenzione sulla terra» (1589). L’ordinazione, che conferisce al sacerdote «un potere sacro» (1592), è insostituibile perché attraverso di essa Gesù diventa sacramentalmente presente nella sua azione salvifica. I sacerdoti scelgono volontariamente il celibato come «segno di questa vita nuova» (1579). Si tratta della donazione di sé stesso al servizio di Cristo e del Suo Regno che viene. Al fine di conferire validamente l’ordinazione nei tre gradi di questo sacramento, la Chiesa si riconosce vincolata alla scelta compiuta dal Signore stesso, «per questo motivo l’ordinazione delle donne non è possibile» (1577). A tale riguardo, parlare di una discriminazione della donna dimostra chiaramente una erronea comprensione di questo sacramento, che non riguarda un potere terreno ma la rappresentazione di Cristo, lo Sposo della Chiesa.
4. La legge morale
Fede e vita sono inseparabili, poiché la fede senza le opere compiute nel Signore è morta (1815). La legge morale è opera della sapienza divina e conduce l’uomo alla beatitudine promessa (1950). Di conseguenza, la «Legge divina e naturale mostra all’uomo la via da seguire per compiere il bene e raggiungere il proprio fine» (1955). La sua osservanza è necessaria a tutte le persone di buona volontà per conseguire la salvezza eterna. Infatti colui che muore in peccato mortale senza pentimento rimarrà per sempre separato da Dio (1033). Ciò comporta delle conseguenze pratiche nella vita dei cristiani, tra le quali è opportuno richiamare quelle oggi più frequentemente trascurate (cfr 2270-2283; 2350-2381). La legge morale non è un peso ma fa parte di quella verità liberatrice (cfr Gv 8,32) attraverso la quale il cristiano percorre la via della salvezza e non deve essere relativizzata.
5. La vita eterna
Molti si chiedono oggi per quale motivo la Chiesa esista ancora se gli stessi vescovi preferiscono agire da politici piuttosto che da maestri della fede proclamare il Vangelo. Lo sguardo non deve soffermarsi su questioni secondarie, ma è più che mai necessario che la Chiesa si assuma il suo compito proprio. Ogni essere umano ha un’anima immortale, che alla sua morte si separa dal corpo,però con la speranza della risurrezione dei morti (366). La morte rende definitiva la decisione dell’uomo a favore o contro Dio. Tutti devono affrontare il giudizio personale subito dopo la morte (1021): o sarà necessaria ancora una purificazione oppure l’uomo andrà direttamente verso la beatitudine celeste e gli sarà permesso di contemplare Dio faccia a faccia. Esiste però anche la terribile possibilità che una persona, fino alla fine, resti in contraddizione con Dio: rifiutando definitivamente il Suo amore, essa «si dannerà immediatamente per sempre» (1022). «Dio, che ci ha creati senza di noi, non ha voluto salvarci senza di noi» (1847). L’eternità della punizione dell’inferno è una realtà terribile, che – secondo la testimonianza della Sacra Scrittura – riguarda tutti coloro che «muoiono in stato di peccato mortale» (1035). Il cristiano attraversa la porta stretta, «perché larga è la porta e spaziosa la via che conduce alla perdizione, e molti sono quelli che vi entrano» (Mt 7,13).
Tacere su queste e altre verità di fede oppure insegnare il contrario è il peggiore inganno contro cui il Catechismo ammonisce vigorosamente. Ciò rappresenta l’ultima prova della Chiesa, ovvero «una impostura religiosa che offre agli uomini una soluzione apparente ai loro problemi, al prezzo dell’apostasia della verità» (675). È l’inganno dell’Anticristo, che viene «con tutte le seduzioni dell’iniquità, a danno di quelli che vanno in rovina perché non accolsero l’amore della verità per essere salvati» (2Ts 2,10).
Come lavoratori nella vigna del Signore, noi tutti abbiamo la responsabilità di ricordare queste verità fondamentali aggrappandoci a ciò che noi stessi abbiamo ricevuto. Vogliamo dare coraggio per percorrere la via di Gesù Cristo con determinazione, così da ottenere la vita eterna seguendo i Suoi comandamenti (2075).
Chiediamo al Signore di farci conoscere quanto è grande il dono della fede cattolica, attraverso il quale si apre la porta alla vita eterna. «Chi si vergognerà di me e delle mie parole davanti a questa generazione adultera e peccatrice, anche il Figlio dell’uomo si vergognerà di lui, quando verrà nella gloria del Padre suo con gli angeli santi» (Mc 8,38). Pertanto ci impegniamo a rafforzare la fede confessando la verità che è Gesù Cristo stesso.
L’avvertimento che Paolo, l’apostolo di Gesù Cristo, da al suo collaboratore e successore Timoteo è rivolto in modo particolare a noi, vescovi e sacerdoti. Egli scriveva: «Ti scongiuro davanti a Dio e a Cristo Gesù, che verrà a giudicare i vivi e i morti, per la sua manifestazione e il suo regno: annuncia la Parola, insisti al momento opportuno e non opportuno, ammonisci, rimprovera, esorta con ogni magnanimità e insegnamento. Verrà giorno, infatti, in cui non si sopporterà più la sana dottrina, ma, pur di udire qualcosa, gli uomini si circonderanno di maestri secondo i propri capricci, rifiutando di dare ascolto alla verità per perdersi dietro alle favole. Tu però vigila attentamente, sopporta le sofferenze, compi la tua opera di annunciatore del Vangelo, adempi il tuo ministero» (2Tm 4,1-5).
Possa Maria, Madre di Dio, implorarci la grazia di aggrapparci alla confessione della verità di Gesù Cristo senza vacillare.

|A Reporter's Diary From Venezuela: "Insolent American Bastards Should Be Hanged On The First Tree" Cache Translate Page|
This is the personal view of the correspondent on today’s life of Caracas.
Translated by Scott
Our Air France flight was grounded in Paris for 5 hours; no one wants to land in Venezuela in the middle of the night, due to the “dangerous criminal situation.” The airliner is half empty, the passengers, judging by nervous conversations, are only Venezuelans. A taxi driver, while leaving the airport, locks the doors, and sweetly warns that after dark, bandits scatter spikes on the roads and rob the stranded cars. “Oh, don’t worry, Amigo, I have an old car. They are not interested in old, cars.” That’s where you understand why Caracas is ranked first in the ranking of the most dangerous cities in the world. It’s too late for supper, but I at least want to exchange my US dollars for Venezuelan bolivars. I ask my cab driver. He violently shakes his head:
The following morning, no one at the hotel wants to look at my dollars.
In Venezuela, the official dollar exchange rate is 200 bolivars, and the “black market” exchange rate is 2,715. And if you exchange your currency in a bank, then according to this calculation, a bottle of ordinary water will cost 330 rubles, and a modest lunch in an inexpensive cafe—7,000 rubles per person. Judging by the stories on the Internet, in Venezuelan people should simply kill each other for dollars, but this is not the case.
There is also other things different from perception. On western news, it is shown that demonstrators fight with police daily, tens killed, hundreds wounded, the sea of blood. But in Caracas, all is quiet. In an afternoon, people are sitting in cafes and idly sipping rum with ice, while maintenance crews sweep the streets. It turns out that the world ‘s leading TV new sources (including CNN and the BBC) show some fantasy film about Venezuela. “Demonstrations?” yawns Alejandro, a street vendor selling corn. “Well, Saturday there will be one, sort of. On one end of the city will be a rally of opposition supporters, and on the other, Maduro supporters. The police keep them separate to prevent fights.”
You browse the Internet, you turn on the TV, and you see the revolution, the people dying on streets to overthrow the “evil dictator Maduro.” And you come here, and nobody cares.
Then it got even better. Never in my life have I had so many adventures while trying to exchange one currency for another. The country has a problem with cash money, long queues waiting for the ATM, and even the street dealers of “currency” have no “efectivo,” as they call cash. I wander inside a jewelry store and ask if they want some “green.” The answer is “No.” Everyone acts like law-abiding citizens. I am told that police recently started arresting people for private exchange, that’s why people don’t want to associate. One owner of the jewelry store almost agrees.
Damn it! I have money in my pocket, and I can’t even buy lunch! Finally, a certain woman, nursing a baby in a workplace, very reluctantly agrees to exchange 2,200 bolivars for a “buck.” I want to curse her out, but I have to live somehow. Bolivars seem like a beautiful, unattainable currency, which hides all the benefits of the world, that’s why they are so hard to get. I’m nodding in agreement. The woman calls somewhere, and asks to wait. After 15 minutes she tells me that “there is a problem.” Of course, money is not to be found. Her man couldn’t withdraw them from the ATM, everywhere the ATMs are on a strict daily rate.
I don’t know how it works, but yesterday an exchange rate was 3,200 bolívars for 1 dollar, and today the “bucks” fell to 2,700. I have started to realize that in the very next few days I’ll starve to death with dollars in my pocket. A unique fate, perhaps, that has never happen in history.
In the next kiosk cash for gold place I am offered a plastic debit card loaded with local money, and then I would try my luck withdrawing bills from neighboring ATMs. “Or, maybe not, if you’re not lucky.” Well, of course. By the way, an attempt to buy a SIM card for the phone also fails. They don’t sell them to foreigners, you need a Venezuelan ID card. Yes, and I have nothing to pay for it. The feeling is that the dollar is a gift that no one wants. Sadly, I walk by stores. People come out of there with packages of eggs, bread, packs of butter. The range is not like in Moscow, of course, but again, if you believe the news on TV, Venezuela is suffering from a terrible famine, supermarkets are empty, and people are fighting each other for food. Nothing like that. There are queues, but not kilometers long. In general, television stations in the United States and Europe (and ours too) created their own Venezuela, drawn like a terrible cartoon. I walk into a cafe at random.
My first day in Venezuela is over. How unusual. I’ve been here for 24 hours, and I’ve not held a Bolivian bill in my hand. Oh, but there will be more...
60 liters of gasoline here cost five cents, and a basket of basic food products - 50 rubles (about 90 cents).
“The gas station,” my driver reaches into his purse and takes out a banknote of 2 Bolivar. The exchange rate of the Venezuelan currency changes every day, and today it is 2,580 bolivars per one dollar. In Russian money, that is 10 cents. “We must now fill a full tank,” says the taxi driver. 60 liters of gasoline cost 1 bolívar, but we give the 2 bolivars bill, because there is no 1 bolivar bill. I can’t believe that is a full tank of fuel costs FIVE CENTS?
All the way to the center city, the driver scolds President Maduro, and tells me how much he loves America, and how it will be good when the “guy with mustache” is finally overthrow by the Americans.
I start to think that I don’t feel sorry for Maduro at all. He really corrupted en entire country with such generous handouts. And they willingly take, but no one says “thank you,” just that they want more and more.
On the street there is a long line into a “social supermarket,” a place you can buy 400 types of goods at the solid low prices. These shops were established by the late President Hugo Chavez “to fight inflation and protect the poor.” The stores are funded by the Venezuelan government. The buyer comes with a passport, gets a number, and waits in line until they are allowed to enter and buy a certain set of products. The selection isn’t very impressive, only the essentials: chicken, bananas, pineapples, sausages, milk. A box of these food items costs of equivalent of 50 rubles. CNN and the BBC show videos of Venezuelans wrapped in rolls of toilet paper and sadly wandering across the border with Colombia. The toilet paper is found in absolutely every store, and without any problems. I am once again simply amazed: Western TV news is something from Hollywood, they are not reporting but making fantasy blockbusters. On the BBC website I read that hungry Venezuelan children after school go to take a look at the street vendors cooking meat. I’ve been all over the town. Restaurants, cafes, eateries, during the lunch hour are crowded, and people look well-dressed. The mass hunger, the Western media paints for us, doesn’t exist in reality.
I take a few pictures inside the supermarket, and I am immediately approached by the workers or “Maduro followers.”
I started to understand perfectly well why Nicolas Maduro lost the information war. Hugo Chavez was often praised even in private conversations, but even Chavez supporters find little positive to say about Maduro. When people protested against Hugo’s endless nominations as the head of state, he used to meet them with the open arms, smiling and saying : “Guys, what’s the problem? I’m your President, I love you, let’s sit down and talk!” Maduro doesn’t have this image of being one of the guys. He is not able to communicate with the public, and his assistants, like the employees of the social store, can only push and ban and threaten with the police.
On the streets, provincial farmers sell fruits and vegetables: mango, tomatoes, cucumbers. All about the same price of 25 rubles per kilogram. Here, a dozen eggs from street vendors is 4,800 bolivars or about 130 rubles, and that is not cheap. During the peak of oil prices, when a barrel of oil was sold for $150, Venezuela lived on the principle of a rich fool. To develop domestic production? No, what is that nonsense? We can buy every triviality abroad. Even the managers of the oil production weren’t local, they hired specialists from Europe, and paid them a lot of money. Food imports into the country reached 95 percent. And now the situation is not too different. When I order my meal in a cafe (incidentally, still paying in dollars, all attempts to change dollars to bolivars failed), I get excellent pork. “Where is it from?” “From Colombia.” “And chicken?” “From Brazil, that’s why it’s so expensive.” Even flour for bread comes from neighboring Guyana. Chavez and his successor Maduro wanted to be “people’s presidents,” handing out money left and right. But then oil prices collapsed, food shortages began, and people rebelled. People demand as before: cheap food in supermarkets, gasoline for nothing, and they don’t want to hear anything more or less.
In the TV world, Maduro is portrayed as a dictator and executioner, although in Venezuela, he is openly scolded for being meek; they draw cartoon of him, and insult him as much as they can. But who cares about the truth? Much more colorful to show the suffering for the toilet paper.
I am talking to Mikhail, a citizen of Russia living in Venezuela since the beginning of the nineties. He helps me move around Caracas and instructs me on how to visit the local slums. “You don’t have protection? Oh, who would doubt that. Then leave your watch, phone, and camera at the hotel. Take some money for a taxi, you also have to have some cash in case you get ambushed, otherwise they might get offended and kill you. Sometimes, people get shot in an arm and a leg, that survivable.” After such a nice story, I still go to the “Barrios.” It is there that the supporters of President Nicolas Maduro mainly live. According to CNN and BBC, impoverished people in Venezuela are revolting against the government. Nothing can be further from the truth; it’s a wealthy middle class that goes to demonstrate. Maduro is applauded in poor neighborhoods, because the President gives their residents free food sets enough for a month and gives free (!) apartments. Formally, they belong to the state, but people live in them for generations.
Maduro deliberately does not touch such people, which is why crime in Caracas gushes over the edge. I am advised not to stop on the street to look at anything, but just to keep going, otherwise bandits will have time to look closely at me. That’s why they have constant robberies on the streets, plus the police and the national guard can easily take away your favorite things. No one can be happy about all these. “I love Russians,” told me the businessman Carlos while conversing over coffee near the Plaza de Bolivar.
The opposition rally in the Western part of Caracas is huge, at least 100 thousand people gathered. The protesters are friendly to me, Russia here is respected. It is not considered an enemy. Zero aggression at all… and then I wonder about what I see on CNN, videos of the opposition being rolled into a pancake by tanks. The police keep the neutrality, it disappears from the streets, to not give a cause to provocateurs. People are happily waving flying in the sky military helicopter. Many-in t-shirts with the American flag, a man passes by, holding a hand-written poster with the altered slogan of Donald Trump -“Make Venezuela great again.”
The man freezes, with his mouth open. Finally, he gets the gift of speech back.
Asking the girl from the opposition how she feels about the US:
Again, she pauses and sighs.
Where the opinions splits is the question of whether the free gasoline and free food packages will remain with an American-instilled government. Many are sincerely sure that the “freebies” will remain under a new president. How else? The minority that recognizes that state gifts will be canceled say that they at least “we will be free.” As I said, the protesters are mostly well-dressed, well-off people. By the way, the leader of the opposition, Juan Guido, also has no real economic program promising to “quadruple the oil production.” No one thinks that after that price will fall four times. In short, I get a feeling that neither the President, nor the opposition, know anything about the economy in Venezuela.
The demonstrations in support of Maduro take place at the other end of the city, to prevent the opponents from fighting.
The old lady recoils.
Many people gathered here are joyful, dancing and singing.
A soldier stands in front of me and doesn’t allow me to take any pictures. Not just me, but also other passers-by.
No, Maduro is definitely doing everything he can to be disliked. Those gathering here are poor, blue-collared workers and farmers from the suburbs. I am interested , honestly, were you brought here on the busses? “Yes, he did!” says one grandfather, proudly displaying a portrait of Che Guevara.
Other people applaud him happily. I shake hands. “Russians are welcome! Venezuela loves you, you’re home.”
The day of rallies is over. The maintenance crews came to the sidewalk, strewn with plastic bottles, crumpled packs of cigarettes, and other debris left after by a cloud. At the entrance of an old house, old people drink coffee.
Venezuela is split in half. And the situation there may change at any moment.

|Egypt’s Constitutional Amendments 2019 : Too Fast but too quiet in the Media Cache Translate Page|
I am back in town and I can’t believe how to speed the Egyptian House of Representatives is moving when it comes to the upcoming constitutional amendments.
I am trying to catch up what has been happening so fast in the past week.
On Tuesday, the Parliament’s general committee approved the proposed Constitutional amendments presented by one-fifth of the MPs on Sunday.
The amendments if passed by the House of Representatives then approved by the majority of eligible voters in a referendum will not only enable the president to stay in power for another two decades but also enable him to have more control over judiciary as well as enable the army to interfere in the political life constitutionally.
I believe any constitutional amendments will take more time for discussions in any parliament’s general committee in the world on any planet in any solar system but we are speaking about Egypt’s current House of Representatives.
Now the House of Representatives will have a final vote on 17 February 2018 and if approved by 2/3 of the MPs then there will be a referendum within 60 days.
The parliament’s biggest bloc “Support Egypt” supports the amendments along with pro-regime parties like “Future of Homeland Party” and “Free Egyptians Party”
Again things are moving fast to the level that I can’t comprehend naively considering we are speaking about alarming constitution amendments.
In the Parliament, 25-30 Bloc is still insisting on its position to reject the Constitutional amendments and I guess some of its prominent members may not stay long in the parliament as I explain later in the post.
Interestingly, the Conservatives Party seems to have a split over the amendments as its leader declared his rejection to the amendments whereas its MPs and other leading figures in the party declared their support.
Needless to say, State-owned media newspapers like Rosa al-Youssef began to attack the Conservatives Party leader Akmal Kartam.
The opposition’s Civil Democratic Movement declared its official rejection to the amendments launching a “Union to defend the constitution”
The centrist and leftist leaning parties declared the launch of that movement as well as their rejection to the amendment in a statement on Wednesday quietly with no proper media coverage.
This is not a political opposition battle against President El-Sisi’s regime as some imagine and the media promotes for to deceive us all. This battle is the battle of every Egyptian citizens. It has ideological goals or aims or personal gains or interest of a certain political powers. It is the battle of being a true state or not to be.The movement told the Egyptians in its statement to stand together and to say “No to shifting the country’s path to the unknown”, “No to support autocracy and confiscating the citizens’ rights in choice” and “ No to the assault on State’s institutions”.
The Constitution Party, “Karama Party”, “Egyptian Social Democratic Party”, “Bread and Liberty Party”, “The Reform and Development Party”, “The popular socialist alliance party”, “Masr Al-Horreya Party” are among the parties taking part in this movement.
On the other side, at least 45 pro-regime parties declared their support and endorsement to the constitutional amendments including truly less-known to unknown parties.
You do not have to guess which news is being covered in the mainstream media.
Speaking about the mainstream and its focus nowadays only about MP Khaled Youssef and his so-called sex scandal. Do you remember when I told you earlier that Youssef, who opposes the constitutional amendments hinted out that he would pay a so-called price for his “political stances”?
Well, he is involved in an alleged sex scandal that is a mix of #Metoo, hacking, sex tapes and he is out of town too in Paris.
Updated: Some lawyer reported opposition MP Haitham El-Harriri to the prosecution too for allegedly sexually harassing some woman thanks to an alleged audio recording that went viral online.
Youssef and El-Hariri are the prominent 25-30 Bloc I have referred to earlier.
If both are officially accused or convicted, they may lose their seats in the parliament.
A possible scenario that without even being referred to the prosecution, they can be referred to a disciplinary committee in the parliament and lose their seats eventually before 15 February seriously speaking if we take in consideration what happened to MP Anwar Sadat JR.
The Constitutional amendments are also overshadowed by the on-going fight between Al-Ahly SC and the Zamalek- Turki Al-Sheikh’s Pyramids alliance.
All the trends on Twitter are about football related issues in Egypt.
Bottom-line there is no proper mainstream media coverage for those amendments despite their importance and their danger.
I am trying to gather more reactions, mostly opposing reactions from public figures and so far the usual suspects of 25 January revolution prominent figures are leading the online rejection movement.
Now so far there is complete silence from the presidency.
Old videos of Abdel Fattah El-Sisi have resurfaced showing him speaking in praise of the constitution 2014 and how he did not have any intention to stay more than two presidential terms and handing over the presidency to a young president in the age of Emmanuel Macron.
In that video from a public meeting on 19 January 2018, El-Sisi criticized the old constitution “I assume Constitution 1971” for giving the president too much power.
That interview with CNBC that was aired in November 2017 is also shared virally where he said that he would not stay in power more than what was mentioned in the 2014 constitution. “Two terms”
I believe that there is a slight possibility that El-Sisi may come up in the next public event and declare his rejection to the amendments and we will find the parliament removing some of them.

|Strega Nona Meets Her Match Cache Translate Page||
author: Tomie dePaola
average rating: 4.05
book published: 1993
date added: 2019/02/08
It's not hard to see who young readers will pull for when Strega Amelia, a healer and wise woman like Strega Nona but who uses modern technology instead of the old remedies, moves into town and completely wins over to her side all of Strega Nona's clients.
Kids who have ever felt usurped in any way will identify with the situation that confronts Strega Nona, who even has to face the defection of her assistant Big Anthony to Strega Amelia when she runs out of money to pay her two-person staff. However, as gracious as Strega Nona acts in wishing Big Anthony well at his new job, she secretly knows the inevitable result of her bungling assistant going to help her competitor.
Told with warmth and humor, Strega Nona Meets her Match is a good addition to Tomie dePaola's picture books about Strega Nona. I would give it one and a half stars.
|The Legend of the Bluebonnet Cache Translate Page||
author: Tomie dePaola
average rating: 4.18
book published: 1983
date added: 2019/02/08
The Legend of the Bluebonnet is a stirring, uniquely powerful look at an old Native American legend about a young girl who is willing to give up her most cherished possession to save her people from the drought and famine that threaten to wipe them entirely off the map.
The Comanche tribe's shaman returns from a consultation with the Great Spirits to convey an urgent message to all members of the tribe: The land's lack of productivity is a direct result of the people's continually growing selfishness, he says, and until the Comanche people sacrifice their most important possession, the lasting dry season will not recede.
Amidst all the adults of the tribe who rationalize why it can't possibly be their favorite possession that the Great Spirits want, the young girl She-Who-Is-Alone, who has lost both her parents to the drought, makes an emotionally charged sacrifice that will sweep across all barriers of culture and time to directly affect the reader's heart.
The Legend of the Bluebonnet is a profound story that shows very clearly the perception and power to affect change that even the very youngest of all can have. I would give it at least two and a half stars.
|Adelita: A Mexican Cinderella Story Cache Translate Page||
author: Tomie dePaola
average rating: 4.05
book published: 2002
date added: 2019/02/08
This Mexican take on the beloved story of Cinderella derives much of its beauty from the spectacularly deep artwork of Tomie dePaola. He has done some great illustrating work in the past, and this book ranks right up near the very top of his most notable artistic triumphs.
Adelita, like her usual counterpart Cinderella, is a wonderfully kind girl who does her best to see the potential good in others even if they are cruelly mistreating her. Over the course of her lifetime, Adelita has formed a powerful attachment to the servant woman Esperanza, who after the deaths of the rest of Adelita's original loving family remains her sole connection to her own happy past. However, Adelita's cold-hearted stepmother throws Esperanza out of the house even after her years of dedicated service to the family, and for the first time Adelita finds herself truly, completely alone.
When the prince Javier begins his very public search for a wife, it seems that these happenings are as far removed from anything concerning Adelita as could be. Her faithful friend Esperanza has not given up, however, and acts as a sort of "Fairy Godmother" to provide Adelita with a way to capture Javier's attention. The results are inspiring, as the best versions of Cinderella so often are.
Tomie dePaola retells this classic story with originality and good energy. The smattering of Spanish words and phrases is a nice touch, I think. I would likely give the full two stars to this book.

|Read President Trump’s Scathing Response to Sen. Warren’s 2020 Campaign Launch Cache Translate Page|
On Saturday, February 9th, Democratic Senator of Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren officially launched her 2020 presidential campaign. Her campaign launch, which comes shortly after she apologized for describing her heritage as “American Indian,” was highly critical of President Donald Trump’s administration.
The public anticipated Trump’s response to Warren’s campaign launch, especially since the two criticize one another quite often over their difference in politics. Brad Parscale, Trump’s campaign manager, released a statement Saturday morning on behalf of POTUS and the rest of his administration. The scathing statement heavily criticized Warren’s presidential run.
“Elizabeth Warren has already been exposed as a fraud by the Native Americans she impersonated and disrespected to advance her professional career, and the people of Massachusetts she deceived to get elected,” Parscale wrote.
“The American people will reject her dishonest campaign and socialist ideas like the Green New Deal, that will raise taxes, kill jobs and crush America’s middle class,” he added. “Only under President Trump’s leadership will America continue to grow safer, secure and more prosperous.”
Other conservatives were also critical of Warren’s presidential run. Read some of the responses below:

|Ariana Grande Rewrites Her Own Happy Ending On Powerhouse 'Thank U, Next' Cache Translate Page|
Girl meets boy ― perhaps at a taping of a certain late-night sketch comedy show ― and the two fall in love. They ride off together into a millennial pink-tinted sunset leaving behind a trail of partially sucked lollipops, oversized sweatshirts and broken hearts. Roll the credits, yuh.
When we last heard from Ariana Grande on the vibe-heavy “Sweetener,” she was well on her way to her own happily ever after, having bounced back emotionally and sonically from the 2017 bombing at her Manchester concert by embracing a world turned upside down. The pint-sized pop star, however, was in for a few more turns on life’s spin cycle (speed: unrelenting), as she ended her much-publicized engagement to “Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson weeks after ex-boyfriend and rapper Mac Miller died of a fatal overdose.
The arrival of her fifth studio album “thank u, next” on Friday, which dropped a mere six months after “Sweetener,” finds Grande in a spot likely she nor her fans could’ve anticipated: liberated from both romantic and musical attachments.
Journeying through the 12-track LP is the pop music equivalent of watching your favorite rom-com heroine self-actualize in real time. Here, Grande is reveling in a newfound independence not typically afforded to the Katherine Heigels, Kate Hudsons and the genre’s other cinematic queens, whom the singer inhabits in the titular track’s record-smashing music video, and the album is all the better for it.
If “Sweetener,” as Grande has described, was a “dreamier” and “mature” experiment away from the expected bangers, its followup more deftly sticks the landing. “Thank u, next” successfully reconciles her pop music roots with her more recent and ― depending on who you ask ― controversial R&B leanings. Stans can argue which entry is better, but the two albums are actually in conversation with each other, echoing questions and answers big and small about love, sex, loss and material wealth.
The opening track “Imagine,” which hews closer to her previous album in sound and substance, serves as a bridge between the two works, in which Grande puts forth a vision of a love story as beautiful as it is unattainable.
Once that image of a forever-kind of love is shattered ― many have inferred that “Imagine” is inspired by Miller ― the real work begins. She places her own behavior under the microscope on “needy” and “NASA,” renouncing the tired idea that the singer’s well-known exes are the villains of her story. Grande isn’t afraid to implicate herself while unpacking why past relationships have failed.
“I admit that I’m a lil’ messed up / But I can hide it when I’m all dressed up,” she sings on the second track. “I’m obsessive and I love too hard / Good at overthinking with my heart.”
If “Sweetener” suffered from the dueling creative visions of producers Pharrell and Max Martin, Grande seamlessly tone-switches here, jumping from introspective bops to turn-up anthems. As pop-rock foremother Liz Phair once sang, “the best part of breaking up is finding someone else you can’t get enough of,” and Grande isn’t afraid to press pause on the heavy emotions and have a little fun as a newly single woman along the way.
Dance-floor-primed songs like “bloodline,” “bad idea” and “break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored” show off the singer’s sexier side and are sure to quiet fans who’ve yearned for the breezy, belt-laden bops of past eras. Grande, who’s pledged to remain boyfriend-less for the time being, makes her intentions clear regarding her romantic future (“Ain’t lookin’ for my one true love / Yeah, that ship sailed away”), as she boasts about the pleasures of short-lived flings.
And yet, even the most frivolous tracks are underpinned by whispers of grief, which come to a crescendo in late-in-album entries “ghostin” and “in my head.” Grande might’ve brazenly named her exes on previous tracks, but she doesn’t delve into the specifics here. Anyone familiar with her romantic history, however, will assume “ghostin” explores how Miller’s death heavily factored into her breakup with Davidson. Produced by Martin, Victoria Monét & ILYA, the gorgeous, synth-heavy ballad is easily an album standout due to how it so accurately captures the messy parts of mourning a loved one. Grande applauds her partner’s strength, but she can’t keep her unfinished business with a late lover from bubbling to the surface.
“I know that it breaks your heart when I cry again over him,” she croons.
And herein lies Grande’s essential appeal for those still confused by her admittedly at times overenthusiastic fanbase. Putting her undisputed vocal talents aside, the singer has rendered herself perhaps the most relatable figure in popular culture for being unabashedly herself in good times and bad. While other artists might be more cryptic about their inner turmoil, Grande has consistently laid herself bare ― be it her feelings about a Grammys performance or battle with anxiety ― inviting her fans on the journey every step of the way.
The album’s very existence is a testament to this no BS kind of messaging. It’s practically unheard of for a pop star of Grande’s stature to rebuke the standards of a typical album release and deliver “thank u, next” in this truncated timeframe. And why would an artist whose fan base has been fed and then some put out another record so quickly? To continue the conversation. “I just want to fucking talk to my fans and sing and write music and drop it the way these boys do,” Grande said in a recent interview. “Why do they get to make records like that and I don’t?’ So I do and I did and I am, and I will continue to.”
Her latest effort is a declaration of independence of the highest order, signaling to her fans and the industry that she is force to be respected.
At just 25 years old, Grande has endured some real-life shit. By weaving these struggles into a tapestry of resilience in all its forms, she’s made an indelible imprint on what it means to be an artist today. She is brave. She is a work in progress. She is still here. Nothing can tear her down even when she feels torn down.
Grande might prefer to say “thank, u next,” but we’ll just keep it at thank you.
|Here's What Happens In The Original, Terrible 'Game Of Thrones' Pilot That Never Aired Cache Translate Page|
“One of the most painful experiences of my life.”
That’s how David Benioff once described seeing friends test-screen his and co-showrunner Dan Weiss’ original “Game of Thrones” pilot in 2010. After that viewing, more than 90 percent of the episode was supposedly reshot before it aired on HBO in April 2011, eventually leading to the phenomenon that the series is today.
But that first terrible, horrible, no good, very bad pilot ― called a “piece of shit” by the showrunners’ screenwriter friend Craig Mazin ― never saw the light of day. It became legend, something that could live only in Old Nan’s stories. Or so we thought.
It’s an oft-forgotten fact that George R.R. Martin, whose A Song of Ice and Fire novels serve as inspiration for “Game of Thrones,” has been depositing old copies of his writing to Texas A&M’s Cushing Memorial Library in College Station for more than two decades. He is said to have fallen in love with Cushing’s sci-fi collection and its archival system during visits to AggieCon as far back as the 1970s and decided to make the quiet spot in Texas a home for his massive catalog of original manuscripts.
The resulting collection at the library takes up multiple walls, the first of which is properly called the Wall. It’s a collection so vast, it’d make Samwell Tarly’s head spin, staffed by a team of dedicated librarians and professors who serve as a kind of Night’s Watch. Among the archive’s many files are manuscripts for the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, and ― as I learned during a trip to Texas over the summer ― a box containing a production draft of that painful “Game of Thrones” pilot.
An early version of the pilot script supposedly surfaced online years ago, but the script’s authenticity was never officially verified. No one seemed to know how similar it was to the rejected pilot that HBO shot or how much it differed; scripts often go through various rewrites, so the mysterious version floating around online could have been from any phase of revisions.
I had three days to spend in Texas, but it took only five minutes to realize the script online and the one at Cushing are different. There are reasons to believe that the version in Texas is similar to the pilot script that HBO shot: The production draft at Cushing is dated Oct. 22, 2009, right around the time the unaired pilot started filming. The Cushing script credits the unaired pilot’s original director, Tom McCarthy, who was later replaced in reshoots by Tim Van Patten. Plus, in terms of content, the Cushing script contains storylines that have been rumored to be in the unaired pilot script (as we’ll get into below) ― key story departures, dialogue alterations and location changes that cast the Seven Kingdoms in a different light.
“Game of Thrones” isn’t returning until April 2019, but fans are already bracing for a final season full of callbacks to early moments in the show, which will complete its eight-year “massive jigsaw puzzle,” as it was described by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister.
In advance of the season premiere, we exhaustively rummage through the secrets hidden in the pilot script from Martin’s collection, involving everything from an unreleased Cersei Lannister moment to a really drunk Jon Snow making a scene. Here’s what Westeros might have looked like if that “piece of shit” pilot had aired:
The Cersei scene that might ruffle some feathers
Let’s begin with a defining scene between King Robert Baratheon and Ned Stark in the Winterfell crypts.
The scene that aired on HBO is slightly different from the scene in the Cushing script, but the gist is the same. Robert asks Ned to be his new Hand of the King, a position left open after Jon Arryn’s death. That’s when Robert places something small but highly symbolic on a statue of his onetime betrothed, Lyanna Stark: a feather.
And that pretty much sums up the sequence you saw in Season 1:
But in the script found in the Cushing library, Queen Cersei plays a pivotal role in this exchange’s aftermath ― so much so that her involvement would have changed a Season 5 episode, the recent Season 8 teaser and possibly more.
The following scene is written into the pilot script found at Cushing and involves Cersei visiting the crypts right before the feast at Winterfell:
Cersei exits the crypts, crosses the courtyard and walks into the antechamber between the kitchen and the Winterfell great hall. The celebration for the king’s arrival is underway, and servants are rushing past her with food. The queen’s handmaidens make adjustments to her outfit and remove her heavy fur.
Then Cersei reveals something she has inside her sleeve:
Why does it matter?
The episode that aired on HBO gave no indication that Cersei was aware of the feather Robert placed on Lyanna’s statue, let alone that she removed it to be burned.
Without this intervention, the feather goes on to play an important role in HBO’s recent Season 8 “Game of Thrones” teaser, falling to the ground as Jon Snow walks by and freezing when a wave of cold air rolls over it.
Even before that, the feather was featured in Season 5, Episode 4, “Sons of the Harpy,” when Sansa Stark visits the Winterfell crypts and comes across the token Robert placed on the statue years ago.
The series’ creators, Benioff and Weiss, acknowledged the feather’s station in the crypts to Making of Game of Thrones, explaining that, after all this time, the feather would surely still be there because there “hasn’t been a janitorial crew going down and vacuuming.”
“We thought it would be kind of a great thing,” they added, “to have Sansa wondering about it.”
Why Sansa? And why a feather?
If you’ve been living under a Casterly Rock your entire life, you might’ve missed the curious role that birds play in “Game of Thrones.” There’s Varys’ spy network of “little birds,” there’s the High Sparrow, there’s the Three-Eyed Raven, and then there’s Sansa, who is often referred to as a “little bird” or “little dove.” These characters have a few things in common: They’re misunderstood, underestimated and often hold powerful information.
The feather could hint at how Lyanna, too, was a misunderstood character, another little bird. It could also serve as a symbol for her secret, her child, Jon Snow.
Now remember, in the Season 5 episode in which the feather reappears, viewers still think Lyanna had been kidnapped and raped by Prince Rhaegar. It hadn’t been revealed that she and Rhaegar were actually in love, married and had a baby — a secret that, with her dying breath, she made her brother Ned promise to keep.
The connection to Jon is reiterated in that Season 8 teaser when he looks back at the feather. Could Cersei’s burning the feather in the scrapped pilot script have been a hint at something else on the way? Will she do the same to Jon?
With Dany’s dragons flying around and Cersei having blown up part of King’s Landing with wildfire, it’s not much of a stretch to imagine a fiery run-in between Cersei and Jon in the future.
The cut feather scene is perhaps the first small hint of Cersei’s penchant for burning her enemies’ “cities to the ground,” as she likes to say. Considering HBO’s “Dragonstone” teaser from late in 2018, which shows a fire engulfing the signature Lannister lion, more flames are likely in the Lannisters’ future. And, just possibly, Jon Snow’s.
The much more consensual sex scene between Dany and Khal Drogo
One of the more substantial differences between the script at Cushing and the episode that aired on HBO can be observed in the writing of Daenerys Targaryen’s marriage consummation scene.
In the Cushing script, Dany has a lot more control. She smiles when she realizes Drogo can say only the word “no” in her language, she helps him take rings out of his hair and, most important, she ultimately consents to sex:
This is far from the scene that aired on HBO, in which she cries as he undresses her, then has sex with her from behind. The more consensual framing of the scene is straight out of Martin’s books, which explains why it was included in an earlier version of the script; the pilot script at Cushing tends to hew closer to Martin’s words.
The version of the scene that aired, however, is traumatic. Daenerys is raped. Her relationship with Drogo eventually grows into love, but that doesn’t erase the fact that he raped her — and does so time and time again.
She addresses these rapes in her first conversation with Jon in Season 7, telling him, “I’ve been shamed and betrayed, raped and defiled. Do you know what kept me standing through all those years in exile? Faith, not in any gods, not in myths and legends. In myself, in Daenerys Targaryen.”
Why does it matter?
Though a consensual scene would have been less traumatic to watch, Daenerys actress Emilia Clarke spoke about her character’s rape to Glamour in 2016, explaining some possible reasoning behind the scene:
A rape scene is hardly necessary to build empathy for Dany’s plight, but as Clarke said, it underscores the terrors Dany overcame and her transformation from a scared, abused child into the khaleesi.
Somewhere between her rape and her decision to sleep with Jon, aka King of the Squats, in Season 7, a completely different Mother of Dragons has emerged.
The much more confusing sex scene between Jaime and Cersei
After watching the “Game of Thrones” premiere on HBO, fans are well aware that Jaime and Cersei are related. It’s a pretty pivotal plot point. Interestingly, one of the most prominent critiques lodged against the unaired pilot was that this info wasn’t clear enough. Early viewers didn’t know Jaime and Cersei Lannister are brother and sister.
Perhaps that’s why a scene featuring the incestuous siblings talking at King’s Landing was added to the episode that aired. In it, the two basically chat about how very, very related they are and how if anyone discovered their secret affair, their heads would be on spikes.
“As your brother, I feel it’s my duty to warn you, you worry too much,” Jaime explicitly states. This scene is not in the Cushing pilot script or the script previously available online, as io9 points out.
Keeping in mind that many viewers of the original pilot didn’t understand the Lannister twins’ relationship, a scene in the script at Cushing would have made it even more complicated. (Get out of here, Bran. You don’t want to see this.)
In all versions of the pilot, Bran Stark climbs the exterior of a tower at Winterfell and happens upon a window, through which he peeps a naked man and woman (Jaime and Cersei). In the script at Cushing, however, the encounter reads slightly differently, with Cersei telling Jaime to stop:
Why does it matter?
In the episode that aired, Cersei objects to Jaime only after she spots Bran inadvertently being a little creep in the window.
In contrast, in Martin’s book and the script at Cushing, she protests much sooner. It’s confusing to Bran and possibly would’ve been confusing to TV viewers too.
Consider how this scene would have affected Jaime’s triumphant moment in Season 7, when he chooses to walk away from a power-hungry Cersei. Until that point, audiences are meant to believe he has always been under Cersei’s control; only then is he able to break free from her influence. The Cushing version of Jaime and Cersei’s sex scene could have made this harder to swallow.
In a show riddled with constant backstabbing, endless subplots and so many characters you remember as What’s His Name and Who’s Her Face, the less confusing a scene, the better.
The White Walkers who wouldn’t shut up
The Cushing pilot script opens a lot like the episode that aired: Three men from the Night’s Watch are tracking down wildlings when they are ambushed by White Walkers. Things don’t go well.
In the early pilot script, one of those men, Will, realizes the bodies of the dead wildlings have vanished and proceeds to climb a tree to get a better view. He does this right before the Walkers arrive, and his decision is a lifesaving one. In contrast to the aired episode, which shows a Walker sparing a member of the Watch from death for some unknown reason, it’s Will’s position in the tree that prevents him from being killed along with the others.
The White Walkers descend on the other two men, all the while speaking a language of ice:
Will stays in the tree. He’s going to let this one just play out.
Why does it matter?
At this point, White Walker dialogue is well documented. It just has never shown up on TV. However, it’s in the books, it’s referred to by Vanity Fair writer Joanna Robinson after she reviewed a number of “Game of Thrones” scripts, it shows up in the pilot script floating around online and it’s also in the one from Martin’s collection at Cushing.
Reflecting on early plans for the White Walkers to speak, he told me he originally put something together for the opening scene of the show.
“I came up with basically some dialogue. I recorded it, and then I suggested to them, ‘Here’s how you might modify it digitally to give it a unique sound,’” he said. Peterson wanted the language to sound like it was described in Martin’s books, like “the cracking of ice on a winter lake.” Though, we imagine that could’ve possibly looked like a White Walker whose mouth is filled with pop rocks.
“It didn’t get used for the pilot, and then there was discussion they were thinking about using it in Season 2,” he said. “They said they tried it, and it just wasn’t working out, so they abandoned the idea.”
Peterson sent me a pre-effects example of the White Walker dialogue, which he previously played at conventions and gave us permission to include. Here’s an early version of what a White Walker would’ve sounded like:
At the time, he said, “Game of Thrones” sound designer Paula Fairfield was still hopeful they could use it one day, but that obviously hasn’t happened.
It’s not the only language casualty. Peterson said he created a full language for the Children of the Forest in Season 6, but for a variety of reasons (a desire to avoid the need for subtitles during action sequences, stunt people having difficulty with their lines), they “were either cut or shortened, and all of them were turned into English.”
“It was an idea. They tried it. It just didn’t work,” he said.
The time Jon Snow got wasted
In the “Game of Thrones” pilot that aired, Jon does not make an appearance in the memorable great hall scene. Instead, he stays outside, heeding Catelyn Stark’s wishes that Jon — who she and almost everyone else believes is Ned’s bastard son — not be present.
But in the pilot script at Cushing, he sits inside. He’s not at the highborn table, but he manages to have a drunken conversation with Benjen Stark in the great hall anyway.
Our guy is left alone to drink more wine and eventually causes a scene:
The scene in the Cushing pilot script is almost exactly the same as the scene in Martin’s novel A Game of Thrones. From the book:
Beyond the exclusion of Snow’s drunken escapade, the Cushing version of the sequence was drastically rearranged to form the scenes that aired on HBO. For example, in the episode that aired, the confrontation between Ned and Jaime in the great hall ends after Ned says, “I don’t fight in tournaments because when I fight a man for real, I don’t want him to know what I can do.”
Jaime replies, “Well said.”
But in the Cushing pilot script, as well as the one that has been online, the moment continues long enough for Jaime to remind Ned of how his brother and father were killed:
A flashback of Ned’s brother Brandon being killed also purportedly existed in an early version of the filmed pilot (a screenshot exists online), but this is not included in the script at Cushing (though it could have fit in around this conversation).
The Cushing version of the scene goes even further, with Ned leaving and Tyrion, who overheard everything, telling Jaime, “If it came down to it, Brother, I’d bet on you ― but I wouldn’t bet much.” Tyrion then downs another tankard of wine, realizes he drank too much, staggers out of the hall and eventually talks to Jon outside.
Why does it matter?
While it would’ve been fun to see the future King in the North get shitfaced (you know nothing about holding your alcohol, Jon Snow), it’s so much extra character interaction to digest that you could be left feeling as dizzy as Tyrion.
There are a few moments that are really important from the Winterfell feast scenes, and Jon’s conversations with Tyrion and Benjen are at the forefront. The conversation with Tyrion is referred to in Season 7, when Tyrion writes Jon a letter that includes “All dwarves are bastards in their father’s eyes.” It’s a line Tyrion says in their first chat, and it seemingly convinces Jon he’ll be safe when he travels to see Daenerys.
Of course, with Benjen he talks about going to serve in the Night’s Watch at the Wall, which he clearly does and then lives happily ever after.
The other character interactions, while entertaining, could have distracted from the truly important moments, so let’s all pour one out for Jon’s long-lost wasted scene.
The weird Catelyn who wanted Sansa to be queen
Catelyn and Daenerys were originally played by different actors — Jennifer Ehle and Tamzin Merchant, respectively. Before Michelle Fairley took on the role of Catelyn, the character’s personality was a lot different too.
For example, in a bedroom scene in the pilot script, Catelyn urges Ned to accept Robert’s offer of betrothal between Joffrey and Sansa and to head south with the king.
Maester Luwin then enters with the note from her sister Lysa, saying that the Lannisters murdered her husband, Jon Arryn. Ned has no choice but to take up his old friend Robert’s request to be the new Hand of the King and go to King’s Landing to figure out what’s going on.
In the episode that aired, however, Catelyn urges Ned to stay in the North, claiming that she’ll confront Robert and tell him, “Listen, fat man. You are not taking my husband anywhere. He belongs to me now.”
You tell ’em, Cat.
Why does it matter?
In terms of the differences between the pilot script at Cushing and the episode that aired, Catelyn is my pick for most improved character. Benioff and Weiss were smart to realize that fans have pages and pages to get to know the Catelyn in the books but only a few scenes to get to know her on the show. The Cushing script might have made Catelyn seem a bit title obsessed, like Season 1 Sansa, who was, objectively, the worst.
Just ask Season 1 Arya Stark.
Instead, the showrunners chose to lean into the image of the Stark matriarch as a protective mother and wife who would later fend off an assassin in an effort to save her injured Bran.
It’s also worth noting that after reading Lysa’s letter in the Cushing script, Catelyn says to Ned:
In the episode that aired, Catelyn stops after saying Jon Arryn was murdered by the Lannisters. She doesn’t say, “By the queen.”
John Standing, the actor who plays the dearly departed Jon Arryn, once said the original pilot included a “lunatic” scene in which Cersei watches his character die. Though this scene isn’t included in the script at Cushing, a line about Jon Arryn being killed by the queen paves the way for the bit to have been added later.
The time Joffrey Baratheon, First of his Name, was a jerk from the start
When “Game of Thrones” begins, you don’t realize Joffrey is quite as turdish as he is until Episode 2, when Tyrion slaps him silly for not going to the Starks to offer sympathies after Bran’s fall. But in the pilot script at Cushing, you get the impression that Joffrey is a walking, talking pile of human excrement right away.
At a training session between the Lannisters and Starks, Bran has just finished pummeling Tommen Baratheon with a wooden sword, and Ser Rodrik, Winterfell’s master-at-arms, asks Robb Stark and Joffrey if they’d like to go another round. Robb’s in, but Joffrey complains that he’s “tired of swatting at Starks with a play sword.” He suggests “live steel,” and Rodrik is just not cool with that.
While the pilot script gives Robb this early interaction with Joffrey, it omits many other scenes that made their way to air — the Winterfell scene where Bran is learning archery with his family, the scene in which Sansa and Arya are practicing their stitching, the scene in which Sansa begs Catelyn to let her go to King’s Landing and the infamous shaving scene in which the Stark boys stand around shirtless and flexing.
Why does it matter?
The Joffrey moment could have added tension later in the series — for instance, during the War of the Five Kings skit at Joffrey’s wedding, which features someone riding around with a wolf’s head to represent the decapitated Robb. But it seems likely that some minor scenes like this were cut in order to make room for more vital moments, such as getting to know the Starks. And, frankly, more Starks and less Joffrey sounds like a winning formula, bare-chested flexing and all.
The final takeaways
In addition to the cut scenes, there were quite a few subtle differences between the script available online and the one from Martin’s official collection in Texas. In the version online, Tyrion pets the Stark direwolf Ghost, his brothel scene takes place at King’s Landing (not in the North), and there’s a long scene meant to describe a now-discarded title sequence.
But none of this happens in the script at the Cushing library. (In fact, as far as the credits go, the script there describes an opening sequence with just the words “TITLE CARD: GAME OF THRONES.”)
There are some less significant but amusing details sandwiched into the script at Cushing too. Ned, who’s about the grimmest dude around, makes a joke in the crypts:
The line was taken out and given to Jaime in Season 1, Episode 3:
Various shooting locations changed as well. For instance, Dany’s wedding was originally filmed in Morocco and featured a cameo from Martin himself as a Pentoshi (something that could have easily fit into the Cushing script, since it mentions “Merchants of Pentos” gathered for the ceremony). However, when Clarke was brought in as the replacement Daenerys, the subplot was altered and reshot in Malta.
The Cushing script alone doesn’t reveal exactly why the original pilot was such a “massive problem,” as Mazin put it. Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, touched on that version’s “mistakes,” telling The Guardian, “It didn’t look right, didn’t feel right.” The devil is likely in the scene execution details, which we might never see, although he said the showrunners would threaten to release the pilot on YouTube when he pissed them off. Perhaps the early drunk scenes weren’t the King in the North’s finest hour.
Still, reading the script at Cushing, I got a sense of how even small changes would have led to a vastly different show. One of the most interesting aspects for me ― a moment that would’ve changed the way some future “Game of Thrones” scenes unfold and added some foreshadowing ― was Cersei’s cut scene. As the adage goes, where there’s smoke, there’s ... Cersei trying to light something on fire.
The scenes illustrated by Lena Vargas Afanasieva are not meant to be exact depictions of the scripted sequences.

|HuffPost Her Stories: Me Too Allegations Rock Korea's Sports World Cache Translate Page|
“HuffPost Her Stories” is a new series highlighting HuffPost’s coverage of women’s lives from across our 15 global editions. Sign up for the weekly newsletter here.
South Korea’s elite world of sports is in the midst of a Me Too reckoning. It began last month when two-time Olympic speedskating champion Shim Suk-hee accused her coach of having sexually abused her for years. Cho Jae-beom — who is already serving a 10-month prison sentence for physically assaulting athletes, including Shim — denied the sexual abuse allegations.
Shim’s decision to speak out encouraged a barrage of other athletes to follow her lead. In the last few weeks, judo, soccer, taekwondo and skating stars have accused coaches and powerful sports executives of raping, threatening and sexually assaulting them. The outpouring of accusations prompted the Korean government to launch the country’s largest-ever inquiry into a culture of abuse in sports.
HuffPost Korea’s Sanga Kwak has written about the reckoning and the ways the country’s male-dominant, hierarchical sports organizations made it so difficult for women and girls to speak up sooner.
Some readers may be surprised to read about the substantial gender disparities in Korean society, which Sanga writes are reflected in the country’s sports scene. Korea ranked 115th out of 149 countries in the World Economic Forum’s 2018 Global Gender Gap Report, which measures gender-based disparities in economic participation, education, health and political empowerment. Sanga notes that the gender gap is particularly large in the world of elite sports, where female athletes are overwhelmingly trained by men, who wield enormous power over their lives and careers.
But things are finally starting to change. Sanga says the national reaction to the burgeoning Me Too movement and to the government response has been extremely positive.
“Starting from about 2015, feminism in Korea has developed very quickly. More people than ever are listing to victims,” Sanga adds. Among them is the country’s first lady, Kim Jung-sook, who recently sent a letter of support to Shim, the Olympic speedskating champion who first called attention to the long-buried problem of sexual abuse in sports.
“Finally, many Koreans are listening to women,” Sanga says. “I wish them victory.”
Until next time,
For more on Korea’s Me Too movement, read Sanga Kwak’s 2018 article about the prosecutor who inspired the first wave of women to come forward and tell their stories.
HuffPost U.S. senior reporter Emily Peck interviewed actress Alyssa Milano about her activism and assessment of gender equality in the United States. In 2017, the outspoken women’s rights advocate famously used her platform to turn the Me Too movement, founded by social activist Tarana Burke, into a global phenomenon. She tells Emily that Hollywood is doing a better job of working toward gender equality than Washington, which she says lacks transparency and is plagued by corruption and cover-ups. “If you look at Hollywood right now, it’s pretty transparent,” she said. “People know they’re under the microscope. We are talking about it.” It’s an insightful interview with funny bits about her reaction to seeing herself as a cardboard cutout on the satirical TV show “Saturday Night Live” and the lessons she’s teaching her kids about consent.
Last month, India’s oldest political party appointed a transgender woman to lead its women’s wing. In her new role, Apsara Reddy plans to advocate for women in India and make the party’s manifest more inclusive for members of the LGBTQ community. In an intimate and wide-ranging interview with HuffPost India, she speaks about her struggle to be taken seriously in a country that views transgender women, she says, as either dancers, escorts or “something related to the fashion and glamour world.” Reddy also delves into her personal experiences as a transgender woman in both India and the U.K., where she lived for years, and her emotional reaction to learning about her historic appointment.

|Comment on Large Sheriff’s Convoy in China Creek Wednesday Looking for Evidence in Missing Person’s Case by B. Cache Translate Page||Kym,
Thanks for your good work.
“Sometimes people are good, and they do just what they should. But the very same people who are good sometimes are the very same people who are bad sometimes. It's funny but it's true.” Fred Rogers
I’ve been thinking about your previous statement about knowing someone well. It’s a mistake to convict someone on gut instinct; it is also a mistake to exonerate someone on gut instinct. I know you didn’t say that you know she – the woman who was married to the missing man—was innocent or that she had no knowledge that she failed to give to the police. I’m sure that the gross speculation and judgement without wisdom or mercy that you get to read in the comments is usually galling to you and more so when it’s pointed at someone you know to be a good person.
However, we don’t know so many things about both the people we love and the people we loathe. A good friend who died this past year, as he was dying, told me the story of war crimes he had committed when he was in his early twenties. They were serious; they were varied; and they were a disaster to the families and communities they impacted. He took the advice of his uncle, a veteran of World War II and lived his life for the good he could do with it. I know a young woman who I believe murdered someone. I heard her alibi from a family member and knew it to be false from my own direct knowledge. She was once a beloved of one of my closest loved ones. The person killed was also “family.” I have a respected elder who, I recently found out, did serious prison time for manslaughter via drunken driving as a young man. I know of other less serious crimes he committed more recently that the police would dismiss as a “civil matter.”
These are just examples. People sometimes do terribly wrong things in a moment or in a pinch. They also do spectacularly generous or kind things that we have no record of unless someone remembers and puts it forward. In all of the above cases, I have come to the conclusion that it is my responsibility to be ready to forgive – when and if forgiveness is asked. As a community we would do well, I think, to focus our energy on restitution and reconciliation rather than retribution . . . regardless of who we think is “right” and who we think is “wrong”.|
