          2015 Recap      Cache   Translate Page      

Waiting until the last possible moment to write these recap posts seems to have become a tradition for me. This year, I decided to follow up on last year’s goals and list a few new ones for 2016.

Ship Cushion

cushionapp.com

On July 14 of 2015, I finally shipped Cushion, the freelancing app that has absolutely consumed my life for the past two years. The day went off without a hitch and I watched as a wave of new users signed up to try it out. Ever since, I’ve been trying my hardest to grow it into a sustainable app that I could turn into a full-time career. So far, I’m about halfway there, and I’m ecstatic about Cushion’s future—especially this upcoming year. I plan to hire a few freelancers to help get Cushion to the next level, which is both exciting and terrifying.

Use spreadsheets

Cushion Expenses

I didn’t take advantage of spreadsheets as much as I had hoped this past year, but I did use spreadsheets to manage Cushion’s expenses page as well as track my business expenses. After suffering through accounting software since I started freelancing, I pulled the plug and replaced it with spreadsheets. With a small amount of extra work, I have everything in a flexible format that doesn’t cost a dime. (I would gladly pay for a human-friendly service that focuses on ease and exportability.)

Continue existing routines

Instead of continuing my gym routine, I actually cancelled my membership and I haven’t been back since. I would’ve continued going if it weren’t for the gym’s outrageous (though not surprising) fees for pausing a membership. I did sign up for an indoor basketball league that starts in January, so hopefully that will get me back into a healthy routine.

One week between client gigs

casper.com

I’m happy to share that I’ve gone a step further than one week between client gigs. Because of my focus on Cushion, I’ve been fortunate enough to take between 1-3 months off between clients this past year. Early in the year, I worked with Project Florida on the Sum website (RIP). Over the summer, I reuinted with Oak Studios to help with Siteleaf 2.0. And in November, I collaborated with Casper on their fancy new homepage. I don’t think I’ll be as lucky in 2016, but maybe I can get Cushion to a point where I don’t need clients—who knows with freelancing.

Book a few speaking gigs

I didn’t speak at a conference in 2015, but I did book a speaking gig at Create Upstate in May. I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned from bootstrapping Cushion and balancing freelance work while running an app. I hope to book a few more talks throughout the year, so if you know a conference that would be a good fit, let me know!

Take more photos

My wife, Jen, lettering at the studio

I beat myself up over not taking as many photos as I once did—especially after digging through old hard drives and finding that even the “bad” photos are incredibly valuable to me years later. Going forward, I need to capture my life on a daily basis. Even if I never post the photos anywhere, I will make it a necessity to record at least one “experience” each day. I know I’ll regret it if I don’t.

Read more books

Again, I didn’t read as many books as I anticipated I would, but I did finish The Martian in 9 hours—a personal record! (6 of those hours were on a flight and I simply couldn’t put the book down after that.) For 2016, I think I’ll have more success by establishing a reading schedule. Instead of picking a book and reading it whenever I remember to, I need to designate time throughout the week to slow down and bury my head in a good book. I’m starting Ready Player One right now, so if anyone has a suggestion for the next few, I’d love to hear.

Play more video games

In 2015, I played plenty of video games. It’s easy when your wife plays more than you. After breezing through the remastered Grand Theft Auto V, Arkham Knight, and quitting The Last of Us out of pure fear, I’m now deep into Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and Star Wars Battlefront. I don’t know what to tackle once I’m done with those two, but I love free roaming games.

Ride my bike

It pains me to say that I only rode my bike a few times in 2015. I still have it, so there’s always hope for 2016, but now that my studio is a short, relaxing walk away from our apartment, I can’t imagine I’ll start anytime soon. I should really plan day trips to areas of Brooklyn I’ve never been and ride there. I know of dozens of coffee shops I still need to visit, so maybe that should be my driving force.

Take a trip outside of Brooklyn every 3 months

Jen and I at Coopers Rock, WV

I‘m proud to say that we traveled a fair amount this past year. We weren’t one of those couples who is constantly instagramming exotic locations around the world, but we at least got out of the city every three months—traveling to Upstate New York, San Francisco, Atlanta, Portland, and West Virginia. After reaching that goal, I realized that traveling every three months isn’t enough. For 2016, the new goal is to take four big trips with a few shorter trips in between. So far, we already have Joshua Tree and Palm Springs booked for February along with a week in Austin for July. And, I can guarantee that we’ll return to Portland again in the fall.

In 2016

Looking ahead, I plan to focus on quality of life. This doesn’t only mean experiencing more, but also taking care of myself. I need to slow down, work less, and reduce unnecessary stresses in my life.

Embrace the freelance schedule

Jen and I practically live at the studio with how much we work, so I want to battle that with a more flexible schedule. Instead of racing to the studio in the morning and zombie-walking home at night, I’d like to start a couple days a week without an agenda. Since we also tend to work the weekend, I want to start treating Wednesday like a mid-week weekend. Hopefully, that will break the week up better and help prevent those stretches when we forget to take time off. We really need to take advantage of the most appealing aspect of freelance—not having a schedule.

Contribute to open source

I know this entails more work, which is against my theme for 2016, but I feel the need to give back to the coding community. I try to write about my process and experiences as much as I can, but I haven’t really shared much code over the years. After years of coding in private, I miss having code out in the public for the world to reference and utilize. I’d be happy with even contributing the occasional one-line pull request.

Spend time in the kitchen

Our tiny kitchen in Brooklyn

For those who don’t live in a tiny apartment or rely on Seamless for dinner, you might have a difficult time grasping the fact that we don’t use our kitchen. Now that we have a new floor and more space, I really want to spend more time in our “closet with a stove”. I’m not much of a cook, but I know I can follow a recipe. Even if this only results in cooking dinner once a week, I’d feel accomplished.

Establish a better backup system

For how cautious I am in real life, most people would be shocked to know that I don’t backup much of my data. All of my code is on Github and all of my other work is on Dropbox, but everything else is on a few hard drives that aren’t backed up anywhere. The plan for 2016 is to have a local RAID 0 hard drive system for working files in combination with Backblaze backing up everything to the cloud. I know Murphy’s Law can come into full effect at any moment with drive failures, so I need to make this priority one.

Write 2016’s recap before New Year’s Eve

Lastly, I want to write next year’s post with plenty of time to spare before the New Year. Here’s to 2016!

          How To Choose A Right Car Accident Attorney      Cache   Translate Page      
Think of a scenario, you are driving down the way to your home after a long office hour, you stop at red light, you are thinking about what you are going to do on weekends, and then BAM! For a fraction of time, you don't know what happened but next moment you realize that someone has crashed into your car. What happens next will spoil all your day and the legal processions you have to go through will surely cancel all your plans. And what worse is, you might not have any idea what you need to do when you're in a car accident. Depending upon the city you will need a good lawyer. But how will you find car accident attorney Atlanta? What qualities should you see in a car accident attorney? Here are some points which you should consider:




Ask the people:

Asking or getting a personal referral the way to go. Speak to colleagues and family and try to find out which attorneys they know and how he or she had helped them.


Find out: is the attorney a good fit for you?

After getting the referral, don’t forget to investigate the attorney’s credentials. You can do the Internet search for an expert car accident attorney in Atlanta. Also, don't forget to narrow down a list of lawyers.


The Money to Finance Your Case:

Don't forget car accident lawsuits are quite expensive. Make sure, your attorney can handle the case from starting and your economic condition isn't going to influence his decisions. Hire a lawyer who meets your finances.


Regular Communication:

Making regular communication is the key to winning a lawsuit. No one will want an attorney, who doesn't answer their calls. You should ask the attorney about their policy directly. I mean, if you know what's happening in your case, you can focus more on recovering.


Bonus Tip:

Remember, There is nothing like a small case. Just make sure your attorney also feels the same way.

           Comment on State’s proposed take over of Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport misguided by Pablo       Cache   Translate Page      
Here are a few facts. All but a small portion of the airport is in Clayton county. Over the years, the City of Atlanta has ignored the interests of Clayton County and it's residents as it has sought to expand. Clayton county families have been uprooted and forced to move to make way for "progress". Others families have been left to endure the constant noise of airplanes overhead. Plans hailed as tremendous economic development projects like Airport City pay no taxes to Clayton county because the City of Atlanta owns them or they put together financing schemes which effectively abate property taxes. The county's efforts to insure it receives it's fair share of fees, permits and taxes from the vendors at the airport have been vigorously opposed by the City of Atlanta. These are just a few things that have been left out of the dialogue. The bill passed by the Senate proposes to include two representatives from Clayton county on the authority's board. That's two more voices than we have now in overseeing the operation of a business that resides in our county. The bill also allows the opportunity to Clayton county to expand and be properly compensated for the governmental services it provides to the airport. It seems to me, Clayton county taxpayers may benefit from state control. I hope my representatives support the takeover.

Ugh: correction: Thanks for referencing Georgia’s “ownership” of the GWCC/Savannah Port. And I am not being snide. This is a phrase I’ve repeatedly heard and wondered, how does a state actually own a convention center/sea port? From whom did they buy it? Seriously, the GWCC/Savannah Port is a complicated entity. Think about it. That the people who run/bungle State Government own the GWCC/Savannah Port should, at the least, cause a collective outbreak of hives. To Google I go to pose the ownership question about who owns GWCC/Savannah Port. I agree with you about the costs of the litigation.

You may have also heard Renee Unterman's catchy phrase, "ATL, this is not your ATM anymore". It's not too difficult to discern that she wants Hartsfield/Jackson to be the State of Georgia's "ATM" instead.

Wow, what a fascinating article and the replies are just as good! I grew up in Atlanta when it was a small town and watched as the Hartsfield Airport grew and grew as Atlanta morphed into a city. Somehow, Atlanta has avoided becoming another Detroit or Baltimore, thank goodness, but it has always been an open secret that once Maynard Jackson and his cronies took office that the corruption doors were flung wide open. Just what is wrong with an airport authority operated by the state. Indeed, the comments about the Georgia Ports Authority and the World Congress Center being well-run would seem to support that it's time for the state to do something similar with the Atlanta airport.

Straight From The A [SFTA] - Atlanta Entertainment Industry Gossip & News


           Comentario en EE.UU prohibirá los abortos de fetos que sientan dolor por rosamagarcia       Cache   Translate Page      
En el número del 24 de agosto del 2004, el órgano oficial de difusión de la Asociación Médica de EEUU, Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), volumen 294, página 947, se publicó un artículo que causó un gran alboroto. Los autores dijeron que los conductos neurológicos del cerebro del feto que permiten “la percepción consciente del dolor” no funcionan hasta después de las 28 semanas de gestación. Decir que ha habido una explosión de críticas es poco. Las reacciones a lo aseverado en el artículo se refieren fundamentalmente a tres asuntos. Uno de ellos es que, contrariamente a lo que dicen los autores del artículo, los bebés prematuros que nacen antes de las 29 semanas y tan temprano como entre las 22 y las 23, sí manifiestan con toda claridad que sienten dolor, ya que reaccionan a los estímulos dolorosos retirándose y llorando. Un segundo asunto es que el artículo referido no da a conocer ninguna investigación nueva, sino que simplemente repasa algunos hallazgos anteriores. El tercero es que se ha hablado mucho de la parcialización de los autores. Uno de ellos es el director del departamento de medicina del centro de abortos ubicado en el San Francisco General Hospital. Se ha informado que en este hospital se practican anualmente 600 abortos entre el 5to y el 6to mes del embarazo. El otro autor trabajó anteriormente para la organización abortista nacional llamada NARAL, por sus siglas en inglés. Estos comentarios son válidos y por sí mismos destruyen la credibilidad científica del artículo. Sin embargo, es evidente que sería más conveniente realizar un análisis más profundo del tema. Luego de leer el artículo con sumo cuidado, me resultó chocante el hecho de que si uno es capaz de cambiar la definición de algo para que concuerde con las propias conveniencias, entonces es fácil demostrar que lo que uno dice es verdad. La clave de la cuestión aquí fue la de cambiar la definición del dolor. Obsérvese que en el artículo se habla de “la percepción consciente del dolor”. Además, los autores definieron el dolor como “una sensación y una experiencia emocional que requiere el estar consciente para ser capaz de reconocer el estímulo como desagradable”. La definición del dolor que dan los autores es simplemente incorrecta. Si decimos que el dolor es cerebral, si lo definimos como algo que existe solamente cuando están presentes la consciencia y la memoria, si definimos todas las otras reacciones a los estímulos nocivos como meros reflejos que en realidad no causan daño, entonces el artículo tiene mérito. Pero he ahí precisamente la falsedad fundamental del análisis de los autores. Es un hecho que no se requiere el estar consciente para reaccionar ante un estímulo doloroso. Además, ni siquiera se necesitan los hemisferios cerebrales. Los siguientes ejemplos servirán para ilustrar nuestro argumento. Si usted coloca el dedo sobre un horno caliente, lo retirará de inmediato. Su dedo estará apartado de ese horno caliente antes de que su cerebro registre conscientemente el dolor. Que ese fenómeno sea un reflejo, no hay duda, pero el hecho de que es un reflejo no significa que no le haya dolido, ya que a su dedo ciertamente le dolió y luego desarrolló una ampolla. Los bebés anencefálicos nacen sin las partes superiores del cerebro. Todo lo que tienen es el tronco cerebral. Por lo tanto, ciertamente no están conscientes. Algunos de ellos viven algunos días; otros, un poco más. Durante este breve período neonatal, si se les pincha con una aguja o si se mojan los pañales, se ponen a llorar. ¿Sienten dolor? Dudo que haya una madre, un padre o un médico que lo está atendiendo en ese momento que diría que eso no es dolor, porque es obvio que lo es. Consideremos otro ejemplo, el de un feto de tan sólo 8 a 10 semanas de gestación. Si usted le pincha la palma de la mano con una aguja, retirará la mano. También abrirá la boca. Podemos comparar este episodio con el caso de un recién nacido a quien accidentalmente se le clava un alfiler al cambiarle unos pañales de tela. Ese bebito retirará sus nalguitas y se quejará estrepitosamente. Las reacciones en estos tres casos es la misma. ¿Cuál es entonces la reacción neurológica en todos estos ejemplos? Un nervio sensorial lleva un estímulo doloroso de la superficie o de la periferia a una porción del tronco del cerebro, que se llama el tálamo. El tálamo se parece a una pizarra rotativa. Dirige el mensaje del dolor hacia abajo, hacia un nervio motriz. Este nervio motriz va a la palma del feto o a las nalguitas del bebé recién nacido y activa un movimiento muscular de echarse atrás, el mismo que consiste en retirar el dedo de un horno caliente. Hasta hace pocos años, había una cierta sabiduría convencional en el campo de la medicina que decía que los bebés muy prematuros no podían sentir dolor. Debido a ello, a un recién nacido prematuro lo operaban sin anestesia. En años recientes, una serie de artículos han demostrado con bastante claridad que eso no es cierto. Estos artículos han informado, no sólo que un bebé prematuro (o un feto) siente dolor, sino también que esa personita siente el dolor, incluyendo el dolor severo, de una manera mucho más aguda que un adulto. La razón de ello es la capa de mielina. La capa de mielina es fundamentalmente un aislante. Se la puede comparar a la cubierta de un alambre eléctrico. Ese alambre recibe una carga eléctrica en una punta y la descarga por la otra, sin que la carga eléctrica se salga de la ruta que lleva, gracias a la cubierta del alambre. Los nervios periféricos de los niños más grandes y de los adultos están cubiertos por la mielina, de manera que llevan el estímulo de una punta del nervio al tálamo sin impactar los tejidos por los cuales pasa. Ello ubica el dolor allí donde el estímulo nocivo tuvo lugar. Ahora se sabe que un feto grande y que los bebés prematuros no tienen esta capa protectora o, si la tienen, su desarrollo no se ha completado todavía. Debido a ello, el estímulo doloroso no sólo se siente allí donde ocurrió, sino probablemente también a todo lo largo de la fibra del nervio expuesto. Si ello es así, entonces ese pequeño ser humano siente un dolor mucho más agudo que el niño más grande o el adulto que reciban el mismo estímulo doloroso. Citemos a algunas autoridades en este campo. La Dra. Jean Wright, de la Universidad de Emory, ha afirmado: “Los bebitos de 23 semanas de gestación reaccionan al dolor de maneras altamente específicas, así como fisiológica y conductualmente coordinadas, similares a las de los bebitos más grandes”. Blechschmidt ha declarado: “A las siete semanas de edad fetal, se crispan o viran la cabeza para alejarse del estímulo con el mismo tipo de maniobra que se puede observar en todas las etapas de la vida”. Matviuw ha dicho: “A las 13 semanas, la respuesta orgánica fetal al dolor es más que un reflejo. Se trata de un intento fisiológicamente integrado de apartarse del estímulo nocivo.” Pero, ¿no es cierto que el bebé no nacido no puede decirnos que siente dolor? Esa es una buena pregunta. Pero hay una respuesta. El dolor se puede detectar cuando los receptores del dolor descargan impulsos eléctricos en la espina dorsal y el cerebro. Disparan impulsos que les comunican a los músculos del cuerpo que reaccionen, como se ha indicado arriba. Estos impulsos se pueden medir. Además, los cambios en los latidos del corazón, los movimientos fetales, así como los movimientos del recién nacido prematuro, también sugieren una reacción al estímulo doloroso. Más recientemente, en EEUU, el Tribunal Federal del Distrito del Sureste del Estado de Nueva York recibió una serie de extensos testimonios de expertos en este campo, unos que están de acuerdo con que los bebitos no nacidos pueden sentir dolor y otros que no durante la práctica del aborto “de nacimiento parcial”. En su testimonio, el Dr. Kanwaljeet Anand explicó que los fetos sufren un dolor severo durante los procedimientos de aborto. Este testimonio no fue cuestionado por nadie. Uno de los que defendió el controversial artículo de la revista JAMA fue el Dr. David Grimes, quien hasta hace poco era el jefe del departamento de ginecología y obstetricia del mismo San Francisco General Hospital en el cual trabaja uno de los autores. Grimes, junto con el Dr. Cates, practicó abortos en el segundo y tercer trimestres en Atlanta, capital del Estado de Georgia. Cates fue el autor de un artículo en el que sugirió que el precio de un aborto tardío se calculara según la longitud del pie del feto. Desde entonces, Grimes se ha convertido en un conocido defensor del aborto sin restricción alguna. El Acta para Informar acerca del Dolor del Niño No Nacido, que se ha propuesto en el Congreso de EEUU, exige que a la madre que se va a someter a un aborto se le diga que un aborto tardío le causará dolor al feto y que, por lo tanto, éste necesita anestesia. Es evidente que el propósito del artículo de la revista JAMA es descarrilar la aprobación de este proyecto de ley. Considerando todo lo que hemos dicho aquí, tenemos la esperanza de que el intento de los autores sea contraproducente y de que este proyecto de ley sea aprobado. Fuente: Vida Humana Internacional

          All Time Mets HR Leader: Daryl Strawberry: Part Two (1987-1990 & Beyond)      Cache   Translate Page      
In 1987 as the Mets raised the Championship flag, Straw began the year with an opening day HR, and drove in all three runs in the Mets 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

He hit HRs in the first three games of the season driving in seven runs as the Mets swept the Opening series. He hit HRs in back to back in games at Philadelphia, including a four RBI day in a 9-3 win on April 16th.
 Early on he hit drove in 17 runs, hit five HRs & was batting .325 by the beginning of May. That month he started out with HRs in the first two games & hit nine HRs, driving in 16 runs with stole eight bases.

 On a West Coast road trip at the end of that month, he hit HRs in three straight games at San Diego. On May 22nd, he tied up a game with the Padres with a 9th inning HR off Mark Davis. Gary Carter followed in what was the game winning HR. In the third game, the Mets were down 1-0 in the 7th inning, when he homered off Eric Show, a two run shot leading to a 3-1 Mets win. On June 18th he hit a pair of HRs in Montreal leading to a 10-7 Mets win as he drove in four runs. He would only hit one more HR over the next month. 

All Star: By the All Star break he did have 51 RBIs along with 21 HRs, making his fourth straight All Star game. He went 0-2 in the NL's 2-0 shut out in Oakland, with Davey Johnson as the manager. 

 In August he hit four HRs the first week, including two at Shea Stadium against the Cubs on August 6th. On August 16th he had a four hit day at Wrigley Field in a 23-10 Mets romp over the Cubs. Straw hit a 4th inning three run HR off Greg Maddox, & then added a two run triple later in the game. He had six multiple RBI games in August, driving in 18 runs with 8 HRs for the month. He was the Player of the Month in September hitting another eight HRs with ten doubles 13 stolen bases & 27 RBIs. 

On September 9th, he hit two HRs against the Phillies at Shea leading to an 11-5 win. The next day he hit a two run HR against the St. Louis Cardinals in a crucial series, but the Mets fell short 6-4, losing to Ken Dayley. From September 14th through the 18th he drove in runs, in four straight games. On September 18th, he hit a three run HR & drove in four runs against the Pirates in a Mets heart breaking 10-9 loss to the Pirates. 

Even with all his hitting, the Mets could not catch the Cardinals this year, falling short of another NL East title. Straw finished the year (as one of ten players up until that point) joining the 30/30 club; hitting 39 HRs (3rd in the NL) & stealing 36 bases.

He put up a career highs with those 39 HRs, as well as setting a Mets single season mark. He drove in 104 runs (7th in the NL) hit 32 doubles with 151 hits, 108 runs scored (7th in the NL) 97 walks (4th in the NL) stole 36 bases, batted .284 was hit by a team leading seven hit by pitches & posted a career high .398 on base %.  

In 1988, Strawberry became the first Met since Dave Kingman to lead the league in HRs with 39. He lost out to Kirk Gibson for the MVP award but clearly should have won it. He led the NL in HRs (39) & slugging % (545%) driving in 101 runs while also scoring 101 runs (4th in the NL). He led the team in most offensive categories as well as in games played. He stole 29 bases while hitting 27 doubles hitting nine sac flies & posted a .366 on base %.

 He won the Silver Slugger Award, the first of two he’d win in his career. He became a poster boy for Kenner’s Starting Line Up action figures, and was being praised as possibly breaking Hank Aarons home run record. 

On the dark side of his life, his wife Lisa filed for divorce accusing him of breaking her nose & beating her. On Opening Day 1988 he hit two HRs, both solo shots, helping Dwight Gooden beat Dennis Martinez & the Expos in Montreal. He hit six HRs in April, amongst the tops in the league.

Then in the first week of May he bashed three more HRs. On May 6th, he had a big day agsinst the Cincinnati Reds at Shea Stadium. In the first inning he hit a sac fly & then added an RBI single later on. The Reds rallied to take the lead, but then Straw was the hero, as he hit a walk off game winning HR against John Franco. 

He had a few big games against the rival Cardinals in the month of June, staring with a four RBI day on June 6th in St Louis, leading to a 6-4 Mets win. On June 13th as the teams played a series in New York, his 4th inning HR of Ken Dayley tied the game, as it went into extra innings & Lee Mazzilli won it with a walk off hit.

On June 15th he hit two HRs & drove in three runs in the 6-4 Mets win as they swept the series. He kept his batting average over the .300 mark until late June, then had a good July to follow. 

All Star: In that summers All Star game at Riverfront Stadium, in Cincinnati, Cards manager Whitey Herzog let him play the whole games, as he went 1-4 in the 2-1 NL loss. 
 
In mid July he hit HRs in three straight games on a series trip to Atlanta against the Braves. On July 24th he hit HRs in consecutive games at Shea Stadium, then returned with a five RBI day against the Philadelphia Phillies in a 10-5 Mets win at Veterans Stadium. He began August with HRs in three straight games, but then only hit one more over the next month.

 In September he hit nine HRs, had four multi RBI games, including a stretch of five straight games where he drove in at least one run in each game, he middle of the month. Starting on September 18th, he hit HRs in three straight games, all led to close Mets wins on their way to clinching the NL Eastern crown for the second time in three years. Strawberry closed out the year with two HRs & three RBIs in the regular season finale' on October 2nd. 


1988 Post Season- NLCS: In Game #1 of the NLCS against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Straw's double off Orel Hershiser started a 9th inning rally with the Mets behind 2-0. He drove in the first Mets run, then scored the games tying run on Gary Carter's double, as the Mets went on to win it 3-2.

In Game #3 at Shea Stadium he had three hits, driving in three runs as the Mets beat the Dodgers 8-4. In the home 3rd with the Mets down 3-0, Straw doubled driving in Mookie Wilson with the Mets first run. In the 6th, Straw would follow Keith Hernandez's single with a base hit of his own & would score on Gary Carter's base hit. The Mets tied up the game that inning. In the Mets five run 8th inning, Straw added a two run single capping off the Mets 8-4 win. The Mets had a two games to one lead at that point.


He would hit a HR in Game #4 although the Mets lost the game 5-4. He was 1-2 with two walks in the Mets 5-1, Game #6 win at Dodger Stadium. Straw also scored two runs in that game as well. He was shut down by Hershiser in Game #7 as the Mets were finished off in the five hit shutout. Darryl finished the Series batting .300 (9-30) with two doubles a HR & six RBIs. 

 In 1989, Strawberry's offensive numbers declined a bit, his 77 RBIs were his lowest total since his rookie season and a poor .225 batting average his lowest up to that point of his career. He still hit 29 HRs good enough for 6th in the league. The fans started getting on him as well as the media. Looking back he may have unfairly taken some of the heat for the Mets not winning another championship. It seemed he underachieved although there was always pressure on him to do more although he still put up great numbers. 


That season Gary Carter was winding down his Mets career playing more as a back up & Keith Hernandez was gone. Howard Johnson emerged as the teams power hitter but he & Straw could not carry the team. 

 Dramas; His personal dramas continued when he was arrested for slapping his wife around and pulling a gun on her. He checked into rehab for substance abuse and a blood test proved positive of him fathering a child in Missouri.

In 1990, there was more change in the air for the Mets, as Davey Johnson was fired as manager & Bud Harrelson took over the position. The team once again finished in second place although they won 91 games (91-71). 

 
In June of 1990 , Straw won another Player of the Week Award hitting five HRs with twelve RBIs in the middle of a seventeen game hit streak. At the start of July he homered in three straight games, belting two in the first of those games coming against the Houston Astros. In each of those games he drove in three runs each time & overall drove in twenty one runs in the month. 

All Star: That year he played in his final All Star Game in a Mets uniform, going 0-1 as a reserve player in the AL's 2-0 win at Wrigley Field. 


On August 30th he belted a grand slam HR & drove in five runs in a game against the San Francisco Giants at Shea Stadium. On September 11, 1990 he hit a walk off two run HR off the Cardinals Lee Smith for one of his last exciting moments as a New York Mets player. He had another goo month in September driving in twenty three runs, hitting eight HRs & playing his last Mets game on September 27th. That day he was 0-3 against the Montreal Expos.

Strawberry put up strong numbers in the last year of his contract & final season as a Met. His team leading 37 HRs were second in the league, his 108 RBIs were 5th best in the league & tops on the Mets with Howard Johnsons 90 a distant second. 

Straw had 150 hits, good enough for a .277 average, he had 70 walks posting a .361 on base %. He hit 18 doubles the second lowest total of his career to that point & stole ten bases, also the lowest total up to that point in his career. He would never steal bases in double figures again. 


 In the 1990 off season he signed on with the Los Angeles Dodgers as baseball's highest paid player with a $23 million contract.

All Time Mets Leaderboard: In his Mets playing career he ranks among the best in most Mets all time offensive categories. Straw is first on the club's all time HR list with 252. 

He is second to David Wright in RBIs (733) in walks (580) & in strikeouts (960). He is third in runs scored (662) fifth all time in stolen bases (191) sixth in triples (30) eighth in games played (1109) ninth in doubles (187) & in hits (1025).

Honors: In 2010 he was inducted into the Mets Hall of Fame.

Post Mets Career: In California, he became a West Coast star & was named Big Brother of The Year. He hit 28 HRs with 22 doubles 99 RBIs & a .265 average in his first & only full season as a Dodger player. Injuries & more personal problems sidelined for much of the next two seasons, hitting only five HRs in each season.

He got arrested for hitting his new pregnant girlfriend, then announced he had a substance abuse problem. He then did six months house arrest for failing to pay $450,000 in past income taxes. He was eventually released by the Dodgers in 1994. He got suspended for violating the substance abuse program, coming up dirty for cocaine use. 


He was then signed by the AL New York team in 1996 hitting 11 HRs with 36 RBIs batting .262. He went to the World Series that season with old team mate Dwight Gooden. Darryl hit three HRs in the ALCS against the Baltimore Orioles, including two in Game #4 at Camden Yards.

In 1998 he hit 24 HRs making a big comeback, but was soon diagnosed with colon cancer. He had surgery to have 24" inches of his colon removed. He also needed chemotherapy because cancer had been found in a lymph node. He would need another treatment two years later. He rebounded from that as well the next season, hitting three HRs playing in 24 regular season games. He appeared in two more post season games driving in four runs overall. 

Then there was more negative drama when Strawberry got arrested for trying to pick up an undercover cop disguised as a hooker. He eventually did jail time and then  got divorced from his second wife before finally cleaning up his act in the new millennium. 

In his 17 year career  Straw was an eight time All Star, NL Rookie of the Year, one time Player of the Month & six time Player of the Week Award winner.

Overall he batted .259 with 1401 hits, 335 HRs (102nd all time). His 16.2 AB per HR ratio is 34th best all time. Darryl has 1,000 RBIs, 256 doubles, 38 triples, 816 walks (244th all time) 131 Intentional walks (67th all time) 898 runs scored, & a.357 on base %.

He struck out 1352 times (109th all time) with a career.505 slugging % (87th all time). 

In right field he played 1309 games (39th all time) with 2337 put outs (46th all time) 58 errors (44th all time) with 23 double plays turned (48th all time) & 76 assists.


Strawberry played in 40 postseason games, belting 9 HRs, with 22 RBIs and 20 runs scored. He played in five All Star games, making eight All Star teams with 12 All Star at bats batting .333 with two stolen bases. 


Retirement: Strawberry attended the Mets' 1986 World Champion team reunions in 2006 & 2016. He threw out the ceremonial first pitch in Game #2 of the 2006 NLCS & was at the closing ceremonies of Shea Stadium in 2008. Strawberry has worked as an instructor for the Mets at various Spring Training camps. 

In 2009 he wrote his controversial Autobiography “Straw: Finding My Way”. In that book he told of his own & his 1986 team mates wild escapades. He said “We hauled around more Bud than the Clydesdales. The beer was just to get the party started and maybe take the edge off the speed and coke." 

On the road, he writes: the modo was "tear up your best bars and nightclubs and take your finest women". The only hard part for us was choosing which hottie to take back to your hotel room. Lots of times you picked two or three a night." He talked about how the players would pick out women from the stands & send an errand boy to fetch them. He told of how he would have quickie sex in the clubhouse between innings. 


 In 2010 Straw threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Citifield & later in the year appeared on future President of the United States- Donald Trump’s show “The Apprentice”. Other celebs included Sharon Osbourne, Cyndi Lauper & Bret Michaels.


That same year he & his brother opened up a restaurant in Douglaston, Queens called Strawberry's. It closed in October 2012.

In 2013 he participated in the Charity celebrity softball game at Citi Field during the All Star Weekend. He was also on hand around the city for many of the All Star Game 2013 events.

In 2015 he & Dwight Gooden were subjects of an ESPN 30/30 special taken place at the same diner Goodfella's Movie was filmed in Maspeth, Queens.

His charity the Darryl Strawberry Foundation supports children with Autism. Straw also has worked as a studio analyst for the SNY network before & after Mets games. 

Family: His son Daryl Jr. played pro basketball in the NBA for the Phoenix Suns in 2007-2008. He also played in the NBA development league for the Albuquerque Thunderbirds, then in Italy for Bologna before he needed knee surgery. In 2011 he played pro basketball in Israel.

Daryl is now a born again Christian. He & his new wife; Tracy, are pastors & have started Strawberry Ministries, The Strawberry Christian Recovery Program is dedicated to restoring lives & relationships.

A HealthCare Company help the couple run The Darryl Strawberry Recovery Center for drug & alcohol recovery, in Florida, Texas, Ohio & Louisiana. A Center outside of St. Louis is in the works as well.

Iglesias evangélicas: entre el cielo y la tierra

Joaquín Sánchez Mariño 

La señora tiene las manos atrofiadas. Las veo de cerca porque las extiende al cielo y está justo a mi lado, de modo que su mano derecha casi se pega a mi cara. Pasó algo en ellas, un accidente, una quemadura. No puedo saberlo. En el codo, una venda le cubre la zona. No le hablo porque estamos en plena ceremonia, en la segunda fila del templo Jesús La Esperanza, en la calle Necochea, La Boca.

Tiene los ojos cerrados y las manos extendidas. Digamos que mira hacia arriba, pero en verdad reza. Dice: "Tu nombre, Dios, exaltaré. Tu majestad levantaré". Lo dice como un mantra, para sí, tu nombre, Dios, exaltaré, tu nombre, Dios... No es la única. Son las 8 de la noche de un martes. En el templo -que era una cantina hasta 1976, cuando José Manuel Carlos la compró y convirtió en iglesia- hay cerca de 500 personas. Muchas de ellas, con los brazos extendidos. La diferencia con la señora no son las manos, sino que mientras ella parece estar en su propio trance, el resto se siente parte de una liturgia colectiva. Están juntos mientras escuchan la música. Yo también la escucho. Es pegadiza y la voz de la cantante, prodigiosa.

Al frente, en el escenario, lo siguiente: tres escalones, un atril azul semitransparente con una cruz en el medio conformada por las palabras "Jesús", "la" y "Esperanza". Una pantalla gigante que hasta hace diez minutos no se veía, pero con el inicio del culto se desplegó. Un teclado eléctrico frente al cual está sentado Fernando Blanco, el pastor -y tecladista- de la ocasión. Una batería, un guitarrista, y lo ya dicho: una mujer de voz fenomenal que nos contagia a todos de fe, de alguna fe. Mientras ella canta, la mujer de las manos diferentes la seguirá con un murmullo que acá, desde su lado, se siente como un coro. Ella, la cantante y yo, que estoy de invitado, por un segundo somos otra iglesia. Y pienso que de esto se trata esta nota, de contar cómo la iglesia evangélica parece lograr lo que la católica no: crecer en gente, crecer en poder, crecer en influencia.

Así lo indican los números: mientras que en América Latina hay cerca de 425 millones de fieles de la Iglesia Católica (según una encuesta de la organización Latinobarómetro, el 59% del continente se considera católica hoy, mientras que en 1996, el 80% lo hacía como tal), se estima que ya son cerca del 20% los seguidores de las iglesias evangélicas (según esa misma encuesta, el 19% se considera evangélico). En nuestro país, ese número baja al 15%, aunque no hay una estadística rigurosa al respecto. ¿Cuántos había hace 30 años? Se habla de un 5%.

Este crecimiento despierta todo tipo de fantasías, que encuentran eco en lo que parecería ser un corrimiento del poder en América Latina. Jair Bolsonaro es lo más caliente del candelero: se dice que fueron los evangélicos quienes lo llevaron al poder. Pero se sabe que Bolsonaro no es evangélico, sino su mujer, Michelle. Para Gabriel Salcedo, conferencista cristiano y escritor, hay algo clave en la manera de entender el mundo de los evangélicos que permite este fenómeno: no hace falta creer para ser acogido por ellos, solo es necesario estar dispuesto a llevar el mensaje. Es evangélico y durante mucho tiempo estuvo cerca de los hombres fuertes, pero sus ideas se ablandaron respecto de algunas cuestiones y ahí, cuando abandonó el dogma, se le empezó a complicar su relación con las iglesias. Según él, no son muy permeables al cambio y a las ideas progresistas, pero depende qué iglesias.


La radiografía del poder sigue: en México se dice que un partido de base evangélica apoyó al presidente Andrés Manuel López Obrador ; en Guatemala, está al mando Jimmy Morales, evangélico. En Brasil, se sabe que Bolsonaro recibió un gran apoyo de la Iglesia Universal del Templo de Dios (aunque veremos luego que los pare de sufrir, como se los llama acá, no forman una iglesia evangélica propiamente dicha).

***

¿Cómo entender el mundo evangélico? La primera aclaración que me hicieron cuando empecé a hablar con pastores es que prefieren no ser llamados evangelistas, porque un evangelista es alguien que predica el evangelio, pero no necesariamente un fiel de una iglesia evangélica. La segunda aclaración es que no tienen nada que ver con la Iglesia Universal del Templo de Dios. Ellos son de Brasil y tienen otro funcionamiento.

Aclarado esto, lo siguiente: las iglesias evangélicas surgen en el siglo XVI, tras la reforma luterana iniciada por Martín Lutero. De allí que a muchas se les llama "iglesias reformadas". Surgieron allí las iglesias protestantes, que se separaron de la católica. El primer desmarque fue en relación con el Vaticano: las iglesias protestantes dejaron de reconocer al Papa como figura máxima. Luego, fueron afinándose las diferencias hasta llegar a las distintas denominaciones, que agrupan a su vez distintas iglesias. Las más tradicionales que salieron de ese primer movimiento son la anglicana (que vino de Gran Bretaña) y la presbiteriana (de Escocia). Pero luego están las más modernas: la pentecostal, la bautista, la metodista. Las denominaciones son muchas. A su vez, cada una se concentra en distintas congregaciones que reúne iglesias. La más grande en el país es la Unión de las Asambleas de Dios, compuesta por iglesias pentecostales. Y a su vez, cada congregación responde a una cámara, por decirlo de algún modo. En la Argentina, hay dos fundamentales: la Alianza Cristiana de Iglesias Evangélicas de la República Argentina (Aciera) y la Federación Argentina de Iglesias Evangélicas (FAIE). Allí radica el poder político.

En diciembre de 2018 aparecieron en las calles de la ciudad unos mensajes que sorprendieron a muchos. En los carteles electrónicos oficiales se leía "Navidad es Jesús". Se dijo que fue parte del lobby evangélico. Así fue: gente de Aciera se reunió con el Gobierno de la Ciudad y le propuso difundir ese mensaje. Hasta ahí pude confirmarlo. Al parecer, al Gobierno le pareció bien y se procedió. ¿Pero hay realmente un poder oculto?

Rodolfo Polignano es el pastor de una iglesia de Colegiales que está en plena reforma. Es hijo y nieto de pastores. El apellido Polignano es famoso entre los suyos. Rodolfo es amable y explica sin cansancio una y otra vez las distintas complejidades de este mundo (sin contar, claro, la complejidad última de la fe). Para él no es extraño que un colectivo que ya reúne cerca del 15% de la población haga propuestas. La principal lucha en la que está Aciera en este momento, me explica, es por lograr la ley de culto que les permita a los templos ser considerados iglesias. Hoy esa potestad pertenece solo a la Iglesia Católica.

Sin problemas me explica cómo se sostiene una iglesia evangélica: por el aporte de sus fieles. No hay secretismo (aunque sí intriga) al respecto: cada fiel aporta lo que quiere. El pastor sugiere siempre el 10% de los ingresos (el famoso diezmo), pero el aporte es voluntario.

Los movimientos pentecostal y bautista son los más grandes del país. La actividad pentecostal en la Argentina comenzó en 1910, de la mano de inmigrantes italianos y pastores suecos, canadienses y norteamericanos que llegaron al país. El comienzo de la Unión de las Asambleas de Dios (la congregación evangélica que reúne mayor número de iglesias y fieles), habría sido en Gualeguaychú, Entre Ríos, de la mano de la pastora Alice Wood, proveniente de Canadá. Otra fecha clave fue 1954, año en que se llenaron de fieles los estadios de Atlanta y Huracán. Esa fue, acaso, la mayor concentración de fieles junto con la marcha contra el aborto del 6 de agosto del año pasado.

En 1980, llegó lo que probablemente sea el punto de quiebre para todo el mundo evangélico: la aparición de Carlos Annacondia. Es la referencia ineludible de todo pastor, el hombre -milagroso, según dicen- que sacó al mundo evangélico de las sombras. Nació en Quilmes el 12 de marzo de 1944. Tiene 9 hijos y 18 nietos. En su página web oficial dice que "conoció al Señor el 19 de mayo de 1979 de San Justo, provincia de Buenos Aires, en una Cruzada Evangelística con el Reverendo Manuel A. Ruiz, de Panamá". Su actividad como evangelista comenzó por las villas de emergencia de la provincia de Buenos Aires. Según se dice, los milagros son comunes de ver en sus campañas. Cuando uno ve un milagro, me dice Rodolfo, la cosa cambia. Supongo que nadie podría discutir eso. Para muchos, ese es el camino de la conversión.

Lo fue para el padre de Rubén Daconte. Pastor evangélico de la iglesia William Morris, de Palermo (Charcas y Uriarte), cuenta que a su padre "solo le interesaba hacer dinero porque venía de una infancia muy dura", pero un día tuvo un accidente y quedó en silla de ruedas. Vivían en Mar del Plata. Desesperado por esa situación, un día acompañó a un conocido a una iglesia evangélica. "Fue en silla de ruedas, y volvió a mi casa caminando", me dice Rubén. "Ahí empieza nuestra experiencia con Dios", agrega.

-A partir de ahí no dejó de ir nunca más, supongo.

-No, no. Además, no es solo el tema de que sos sanado, es el tema de lo que pasa internamente en tu corazón. Tuvo un cambio total. Dios le dio sentido a su vida, lo llamó para predicar el Evangelio. Así que liquidó su empresa (tenía más de 45 empleados), y se dedicó al Evangelio. Yo tenía en ese momento 13 años.

-¿Hay competencia entre pastores?

-No. Es tan difícil la obra que lo que hay es un corazón para acompañar, para ayudar. No trabajamos para el reino propio, trabajamos para el reino del cielo. Y las iglesias no son nuestras, la gente no es tuya.

-Si yo te veo predicar hoy y te veía hace quince años, ¿cambiaste mucho?

-Sí, sí. La madurez viene con la experiencia y la experiencia te da autoridad. Cuando uno empieza, habla de grandes ideas, grandes teologías, pero después vas viviendo y las experiencias, la relación con la gente empieza a darte esa autoridad.

-¿Sentís que hay alguna iglesia o religión que sea más cercana a lo que vos entendés por fe?

-Cada uno tiene el testimonio de su relación personal con Dios. ¿Qué significa eso? Cuando alguien me habla a mí, me ve como pastor, en la iglesia, y me dice: "Usted es religioso". No, porque la religión es el dogma, es el esfuerzo del hombre por agradar a Dios. Yo no vivo religión, yo vivo salvación. Es el esfuerzo que hizo Dios por salvarme. No sé si yo lo merecía. La ley del merecimiento es la ley de la gracia. Lo que yo sí hice fue aceptarlo. Yo lo vi a mi viejo sano y lo que Dios hizo en mi familia hizo que me dijera "Dios está acá, yo lo quiero".

Son las 6 de la tarde y la avenida Eva Perón, en el límite entre Caballito y Parque Chacabuco, está movida. Llegan señoras, hombres, chicos, chicas, familias. todos van entrando a la Catedral de la Fe, una de las iglesias evangélicas más grandes del país. Apenas cruzar la entrada, un hombre de traje y bigote refinado recibe a la gente tras un mostrador de recepción. A la izquierda, Catedral Kids, una especie de guardería donde los fieles dejan a sus hijos para presenciar en paz el culto. Al lado, una librería con bibliografía acorde a la situación. Si en la calle hay movimiento, adentro hay un mundo. Gente que va de acá para allá, muchos con los ojos llorosos, no sé aún bien por qué. Después de la recepción, un stand de venta de productos estilo merchandising: remeras, gorras, pines. Y atrás, una entrada a la parte baja del auditorio del templo y una escalera al pullman. Los sábados como este hay ceremonias a las 16, a las 18 y a las 20. Entran cerca de 2500 personas en el auditorio. Lo mismo sucede los domingos.

La música se escucha desde el inicio. Suena a rock. Cuando pase la ceremonia, sin ninguna ironía me iré cantando una de esas canciones, como quien escucha a alguien tararear un hit y se le pega por el resto del día. Pero ahora, que entro por primera vez a la Catedral de la Fe, todavía no sé las canciones. Veo un grupo de gente que entra en una sala vidriada acompañada de otras con chalecos naranjas, con el lema Ministerio de la Consolidación escrito en ellos. Los de chaleco son de la iglesia, los otros son los primerizos. Los de la consolidación les pedirán sus datos y los llamarán en la semana para preguntarles cómo se sintieron e invitarlos a volver.

Mientras tanto, en un predio al lado del templo, pasa otro montón de cosas. Es el complejo social de la Catedral de la Fe. Allí se dan clases a jóvenes, se organizan encuentros, y se realizan las ceremonias para adolescentes. Paso un rato. El auditorio está a oscuras y con el aire acondicionado a todo motor. Hace frío y hay cerca de cien chicos. El pastor está al fondo, ya hizo su trabajo y ahora cedió la palabra y el escenario a un adolescente pichón de pastor al que llaman líder. Hay música también. Una chica, al costado del escenario, agita una bandera roja, como vemos en las inauguraciones de los Juegos Olímpicos. El líder adolescente dice cosas, arenga a sus compañeros, que lo festejan. Y al final, cuando llega al último segundo, dice algo de la fe y cierra con el siguiente combo de palabras: "Atr perro cumbia cajeteala piola gato". Atr es "a todo ritmo". Perro cumbia cajeteala piola gato creo que son palabras sueltas que, combinadas, configuran una especie de santo y seña motivacional.

Vuelvo ahora al templo principal y entro al auditorio. En el escenario hay efectivamente una banda de rock: dos guitarras, batería, piano, coristas. La gente, de pie, tiene los brazos abiertos; muchos, los ojos cerrados. En poco menos de media hora saldrá a escena Osvaldo Carnival, el pastor de este templo y una de las figuras más reconocidas del universo evangélico. Pero antes de verlo ahí, encendido en prédica, lo veré tras bambalinas, en la sala en la que se prepara. Y me dirá que prepara su discurso durante la semana, y el día de la ceremonia solo lo ofrece. "Lo que uno hace es compartir una charla, algunas verdades de la Biblia. Generalmente nosotros lo hacemos como en series. Por ejemplo, ahora tenemos una serie que se llama No temas. En la Biblia hay unos trescientos sesenta y cinco No temas, son expresiones, como cuando se le acerca el ángel a la Virgen o José y lo primero que dice es no temas", me explica. Luego, ofrece café y me cuenta que al lado del auditorio hay una sala de ensayo en la que se preparan las siete bandas musicales que intervienen en su iglesia.

-¿Qué significa tener a tanta gente escuchándote?

-Es la gran oportunidad para uno de expresar la vivencia con Dios. Creo que la cosa fuerte en la iglesia evangélica pasa por lo vívido, ¿no? Fue lo que a mí me impactó. Yo siempre fui a una iglesia católica, tomé la comunión y demás, pero para mí el Cristo estaba cosificado ahí. Hasta que un día, un evangélico me dijo: "Nosotros tenemos una cruz, pero está vacía porque el tercer día resucitó y quiere ser tu amigo". Yo no tenía problemas de droga o delincuencia, que generalmente son las historias más comunes, pero sí estaba en la búsqueda de lo trascendente.

-¿Cómo era hace veinte años ser un pastor evangélico en la Argentina?

-Y quizás había una sensación de proscripción. Yo no he vivido tan crudamente la persecución. Acá ha habido pastores que los han metido en la cárcel, los han proscripto, los han prohibido. Es decir, han sufrido una persecución muy notoria. Yo no la viví tan así, pero sí había una sensación de una secta.

-Hoy, en cambio, hay un auge de visibilidad. ¿A qué lo atribuye?

-Bueno, justamente la visibilidad estuvo marcada el 6 de agosto de 2018, en la marcha en contra del aborto. Creo que eso fue un hecho muy contundente para los medios y, a través de los medios, para toda la ciudadanía pública. Fue un elemento que nos permitió alinearnos. La iglesia evangélica es muy amplia en sus conceptos, desde la política, la música. Vos te vas a encontrar con templos donde la música tiene onda cumbia, onda pop, más comercial, más rock. Por eso hay bandas de cualquier estilo de música. Pensamientos, formas de vestir, de lo que te puedas imaginar... Chamamé, lo que vos quieras. Hay una diversidad muy grande, pero hay temas que no negociamos.

-¿Siente que el diputado Alfredo Olmedo representa en la política a los valores evangélicos? Algunas encuestas hasta le dan diez puntos...

-No, él es una persona que ha tenido una experiencia con Jesús y a la vez tiene una vocación política. Es decir, definitivamente nadie -creo yo y creo que es un poco el pensamiento común de todos- va a representar a los evangélicos. La palabra partido viene de parte, y vos en una congregación tenés que tener gente de Vélez, de Boca, de River, de Racing.

Nos despedimos. Tiene una calma opuesta a lo que veré después, cuando se pare en el escenario y comienza a decirle a la gente que no tema. "Cuando temo. En Dios confío". Lo dirá una vez, el resto de las veces (más de 20), dirá solo la mitad: "Cuando temo". Y la gente completará: "En Dios confío". ¿A ver los de arriba? ¿A ver los de abajo? "¿Cuando temo?". La congregación responde. No será nuevo decir que hay algo de show. No será nuevo decir que cuando la música comienza, hay algo de emoción. Pero antes de ese momento (un reloj con una cuenta regresiva -44 minutos- va marcando los tiempos de la prédica), Carnival invitará a sus fieles a bajarse una aplicación para releer en la semana lo que se dijo allí, y tomar notas de lo más resonante y demás. YouVersion se llama, es la versión aggiornada de los cuadernillos o volantes que entregan en la iglesia.

El reloj marca que quedan siete minutos y la banda entra, mientras Carnival sigue predicando. Se acomodan en sus puestos, la voz del pastor ahora es acompañada suavemente por una guitarra. Siento cómo la música me va cautivando, una especie de masaje que me enciende el corazón y me pongo de pie. A mi lado, una chica hermosa se pone de pie. A su lado, un muchacho con su hijo. A su lado, una señora. A su lado, un muchacho con los ojos cerrados que tiembla como si una fiebre de 40 grados le hubiera tomado el cuerpo. La música va levantando la ola. ¿Qué sección de mi cerebro se acaba de encender? Pienso en consultar a un neurólogo, pero no, la gente que me rodea no va a consultar a un neurólogo, hacerlo sería alejarme de ellos. Y no quiero. Por mi artículo y porque no quiero, ahora mismo se siente bien. La voz de Carnival crece y me pregunta, solo a mí me lo pregunta, eso siento. ¿Cuándo temo? La respuesta es a la multitud. En Dios confío. Comienza el llanto entonces. ¿Qué se ve en las caras de los otros? Comienza la canción. ¿Qué se ve? Y Carnival canta el coro: yo soy hijo de Dios. Y la gente canta el coro: yo soy hijo de Dios. Continúa el llanto, entonces. Continúa para muchos el momento más emocionante de la semana, el que volverá a buscar la semana siguiente, y la otra, y la otra. Cada semana, hasta que Dios los sane.

          Falcons to sign G Jamon Brown      Cache   Translate Page      
The Falcons added another piece to their offensive line this afternoon, coming to terms with Jamon Brown, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com tweets. Brown joins James Carpenter in being a Georgia-bound guard. A Rams starter, Brown saw a suspension derail his run with the team. He landed soon as a Giants starter, however, and will make a run to crack the Falcons’ starting lineup or be a top swing man. Atlanta still has Brandon Fusco under contract, so the plan may be to play Carpenter opposite the incumbent veteran and have Brown work as a swing backup. Brown, though, has started 38 games in his career. The former third-round pick’s path back to a Giants starter spot became blocked when New York traded for Kevin Zeitler. Brown rated as Pro Football Focus’ No. 62 guard last season. This is breaking news. Please refresh for updates.

          Gambling NBA odds advice Cavaliers Sixers Blazers Clippers more      Cache   Translate Page      

MetroBet takes a looks at the NBA slate for Wednesday with the Cavaliers taking on the 76ers and the Blazers facing the Clippers.

 

Cleveland Cavaliers at Philadelphia 76ers (-14)

Moneyline: Cavaliers +800, Sixers -1400

Betting Total: 221.5 points 

Time (Eastern): 7 p.m.

Both the Cleveland Cavaliers (17-50) and the Philadelphia 76ers (42-25) will be lacking some star power at Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday night, as Cavs power forward Kevin Love (18.6 points per game) and Sixers shooting guard Jimmy Butler (18.9 points per game) will be rested. Despite what these former All-Stars bring to the table offensively, their defense is what will truly be missed, so it’s a good bet that this game will go Over.

Joel Embiid was ruthlessly efficient in his first game back from a knee injury on Sunday. In 28 minutes against a defensively-minded Pacers squad, the All-Star center logged 33 points and 12 rebounds. Small forward Tobias Harris tallied 16 points and has reached double figures in every game since he became a Sixer (13). Point guard Ben Simmons has been remarkably consistent in his last five outings, averaging 17.8 points and 8.4 assists.

The Cavs are 22nd in points allowed per game this year (113.3) and last in opponent field goal percentage (49.1). That does not bode well against a Philly team that is highly proficient on offense, ranking top 10 in scoring, shooting percentage and rebounding.

However, Cleveland is 6-5 over their last 11 games and just beat the Raptors on Monday night. Rookie point guard Collin Sexton has made strides in his last two contests, scoring 27 and 28 points, respectively. The Cavs may keep this game from getting completely out of hand, but not before the total is exceeded.

The play: Cavaliers vs. Sixers Over

Bet Now

 

Portland Trail Blazers (-2) at Los Angeles Clippers

Moneyline: Trail Blazers -130, Clippers +110

Betting Total: 233 points 

Time (Eastern): 10:30 p.m.

The Los Angeles Clippers (39-29) enter Tuesday night’s Staples Center showdown on a five-game win streak (and seven-game cover streak), while the Portland Trail Blazers (40-26) have lost three of their last five, with their most recent win over the Suns coming by just seven when they were favored by 12. Underdog bettors should be all over L.A. here.

Sixth man Lou Williams scored 34 points against the Celtics and, per Covers.com, passed Dell Curry to become the all-time leading bench scorer in NBA history. That came on the heels of a 40-point effort by Williams against the Thunder. Small forward Danilo Gallinari (19.3 points per game) has been in a groove of late too, averaging 24.2 points over his last five games, as has point guard Landry Shamet (9.0 points per game), who’s averaged 15.0 points per game in the same span.

Portland point guard Damian Lillard dropped 51 on the Thunder just two games ago and has averaged 31.3 points per contest in his last three against the Clippers, but a similar effort may not be enough based on the way L.A. is playing right now.

The play: Clippers spread

          Why Yoga Relieves Stress, Improves Health and Balances Your Life      Cache   Translate Page      
(NewsUSA) - Life is stressful. Between a down economy, long commutes to a job you may not even like, and overbearing bosses, not to mention trying to eke out a few minutes of "me" time in between diaper changes and dinner dates with your significant other, life can be challenging.Equally apparent is that for decades we've been told that yoga can combat all of these stressors -- and yet, it seems as if it is one of the last things people try to take the edge off.For Leslie Crespi, a social worker in Atlanta, it was the changes she saw in a colleague that got her to consider attending an Inner Engineering program of Isha yoga. A key component to the practice is the "kriya," which Crespi describes to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in an interview as a "process to energize and balance the human system using breathing.""The kriya gives me a sense of balance and the ability to deal with life as it is," she tells the paper. "It's not about what I do anymore. It's about how I am, and that's a beautiful way to live."If the thought of having more balance and energy in your life sounds intriguing, the Isha Institute of Inner Sciences may just be for you.Nestled in Tennessee's spectacular Upper Cumberland (45 minutes outside of Chattanooga), the retreat center offers daily campus tours that include light hikes, rejuvenating time spent in Adiyogi: Abode of Yoga (an energized meditation space), and a visit to the largest yoga and meditation hall in the western hemisphere.For daytrippers, visitors learn yoga for free, if they arrive in the scheduled time for the session each day.Looking to stay awhile? An overnight includes the option of private studio accommodations, delicious vegetarian buffet meals, and an introductory yoga session of the visitor's choice, such as the yoga of sound, yoga for strengthening the joints, and yoga for purifying life energies.The center also offers a myriad of opportunities for hiking and mountain biking on forested trails winding throughout nearly 1,400 acres. The center's five miles of mountain biking trails feature waterfalls, a spring-fed creek, and bluff overlooks.And for those strictly interested in getting centered, there are beginning level yoga and meditation weekends, classical Hatha yoga programs, and individual wellness retreats.For more information, please visit www.IshaUSA.org

Video: Real Men 28
Watch This Video!
Studio: Workin' Men Videos

These amateur videos are the work of a guy who fancies the rough, ragged and mature types. Over the years he has built a massive library that features mostly hard working blue collar men. It's a mix of straight, gay and bi, who have agreed to show off their stuff for the camera. Most of these men have lived a hard life, and it shows in their face. Real Men 28 is one more, in a series taken from this amazing homemade collection. If you're interested in an honest look at guys in their most intimate moments, this, and all the other Real Men DVDs, deserves a place in your library.

Scene 1 - Adam

This guy came to my house about a year ago to give me an estimate on some rock work I wanted done. I was surprised when he showed up at my door for this venture. He is 30 years old, 5' 5", and 165 pounds and works as a mason. Adam loves ass play, which I bet you would never have guessed!

Scene 2- Bill

A referral from Barry, this fellow turned out to be a great guy. Friendly, outgoing, and a hard worker, Bill is a painter who is proficient in all areas of construction and roofing. At 54 years old, 5' 9" and 150 pounds, this bisexual man loves the outdoors, camping and fishing.

Scene 3 - Bill and Barry

Barry introduced me to Bill, thinking he was just a running buddy and nothing more. However, in conversation both said they would be willing to do a buddy session, and both were surprised that the other wanted to do it with him. Friendship can often lead to bigger and better things. You just never know.

Scene 4 - Vinnie

Vinnie and his buddy Jimmy had a rough time of it the night before this session. Both were assaulted by a guy wanting a beer. Jimmy was hurt pretty badly. Vinnie is a 46 year old, 5' 9", 150 pound carpenter. He's a nice fellow, who is a family man, but also likes being with men. I hope to see more of him.

Scene 5 - Jimmy

This is Vinnie's buddy. I let him go at his own pace, as his face was really hurting from the assault he endured the night before. He cums a quart, and says he hasn't gotten off in weeks. At 44 years old, 5' 10" and 145 pounds, he's a family man who says he is an adventurist.

Scene 6 - Steven - 1st session

Born and raised in the Atlanta area, this cute fellow makes his living in construction. He is 43 years old, 5' 8", and 160 pounds. Steven is bisexual, with a good sense of humor and likes to stay discreet. He says he prefers to keep his macho construction side totally separate from his sexual side.

Scene 7 - Steven - 2nd session

Here is a second look at Steven. This cute, friendly, personable fellow is full of humor and fun. I find this macho acting bisexual construction worker to be a great guy and a pleasure to be around.

Scene 8 - Scott

I hadn't seen this dude in years and suddenly there he was with a buddy of mine. He is as handsome and masculine as ever! Scott has always been a favorite here, so I hope that has not changed.



Stars: Adam, Barry, Bill, Jimmy, Scott, Steven, Vinnie

          Melbourne ready to roar for F1 and V8 Supercars at Albert Park | Yassmin Abdel-Magied      Cache   Translate Page      
It is not just Formula One followers who will descend on Melbourne this week, the V8 races draw a different crowd that only adds to the excitement for motorsport fans

The Australian Grand Prix is often a hot affair. The Formula One season opener comes through Melbourne at the tail end of tarmac-melting summer, the week before the nation’s first round of AFL fixtures, and a couple of months after the Australian Open. F1 fans worldwide are hungry for the first broadcast of the 2019 season and Albert Park is a fine place to start, with the picturesque lake and lush greenery a beautiful backdrop.

The Victorian capital has hosted the Australian Grand Prix since 1996, taking it from Adelaide shortly after Melbourne lost its bid for the 1996 Olympics to Atlanta. Rumour has it that the loss, combined with Sydney’s successful bid for the 2000 Olympics, fuelled the state government’s drive to secure the race. Bernie Ecclestone memorably said the negotiations took just 10 minutes – faster than a flat white at a Melbourne cafe. It wasn’t always popular: local residents lamented the lack of access to the park for three months of the year and said that the money could be better spent elsewhere. But the Melbourne contract was re-signed in 2015 and continues until 2023, so it’s not going anywhere any time soon.

          Global equities markets up strongly; US rates have been largely unmoved; GBP has recovered ahead of Theresa May’s Brexit vote tonight; NZD is up 0.35% to 0.6830 USD      Cache   Translate Page      

By Nick Smyth

Markets are trading with a risk-on tone overnight, with global equities markets up strongly.  US retail sales bounced back from weakness in December, but US rates have been largely unmoved.  Most currencies are little changed to start the week, although the GBP has recovered ahead of Theresa May’s Brexit vote tonight amidst speculation she might have secured some concessions from the EU. 

Equity markets have had a good session overnight, with the S&P500 1.1% higher and the NASDAQ up 1.7%.  Both indices have now fully reversed the losses seen after the ECB meeting, in which the central bank presented a gloomy economic outlook.  The Dow Jones has lagged the move in the other US benchmarks (+0.5%), with a 6.5% fall in Boeing shares after the plane crash in Ethiopia weighing heavily on the index (the DJIA is a price-weighted index of 30 stocks). 

It’s hard to pinpoint a trigger for the reversal in sentiment over the past two days, although a stronger than expected US retail sales release overnight may have been one contributing factor.  US core retail sales bounced back strongly in January after a massive fall in December that looked out-of-line with other indicators of US consumer spending (and an economy with a multi-decade low unemployment rate).  Downward revisions to prior months’ retail sales took some of the gloss off the January upside surprise, and suggest that Q4 US GDP will be revised modestly lower.  The Atlanta Fed GDPNow estimate for Q1 was trimmed to just 0.2% after the retail sales release, from 0.5%, although these early GDP estimates can be revised significantly as new data is received.  The trend in retail sales data imply the US economy is slowing from its well above-trend pace last year, but the US consumer remains in reasonably healthy shape. 

US rates were little moved by the data, with the 10 year Treasury yield up 1.5bps to 2.64%, still firmly entrenched within its recent narrow trading range.  Early yesterday afternoon, Fed Chair Powell’s interview with 60 Minutes was aired and, as expected, he didn’t provide any market-moving insights.  Powell highlighted increasing evidence of a slowdown in the global economy and said the Fed was in no hurry to change rates.  The market continues to price very little for the Fed this year, with a rate cut almost fully-priced by the end of 2020.  The Fed is now in black-out until the March FOMC meeting on the 21st. 

The major mover in FX markets has been the GBP, which is over 1% higher from the end of last week.  The GBP is trading at 1.3145 as we write, almost 2 cents higher than the levels reached early yesterday morning.  There is speculation that Theresa May just may have managed to secure some concessions from the EU, with the BBC reporting a short while ago that senior members of the Brexit-supporting European Research Group of MPs had been summoned to see the Chief Whip (although that doesn’t mean a breakthrough has been secured).  And about an hour ago, it was reported that May would fly to Strasbourg for last minute talks with the EU’s Juncker, a possible sign that progress had been made in the negotiations ahead of the vote in parliament tomorrow.  Brexiteers have said they will vote against the Government’s deal unless they receive legal assurances that the UK will not be bound to the EU’s rules indefinitely, and May’s deal is set for an almost certain defeat if she cannot secure some concessions from the EU.  May will come under heavy pressure to resign if her signature bill is defeated for a third time, with the Telegraph reporting yesterday that only two members of her cabinet still supported her. 

The stronger GBP has provided a modest tailwind to other currencies over the past few hours, although movements have been reasonably modest (most currencies +/- 0.4% since the end of last week).  The EUR is flat on the day, while the safe haven Japanese yen and Swiss franc are slightly lower amidst the rise in equity markets. 

The NZD is up 0.35% to 0.6830, supported by the improvement in risk sentiment.  It remains close to the middle of its recent 0.6650-0.6950 trading range.  The NZD/AUD has continued to grind higher, and is up to 0.9675.  NZ rates closed unchanged yesterday although, of note, the 10 year swap rate touched its all-time low of 2.365% during the session. 

US CPI is released tonight, although barring a significant surprise its unlikely to be a major market mover.  The NAB Business survey is released across the Tasman.

Enforcing The Single Responsibility Principle (SRP) in Python

The Single Responsibility Principle (or SRP) is an important concept in software development. The main idea of this concept is: all pieces of software must have only a single responsibility. Nikita’s article guides you through the complex process of writing simple code with some hands-on refactoring examples. You’ll use callable classes, SRP, dependency injection, and composition to write simple Python code. Nice read!

          Alveda King Is the First Woman to Join Promise Keepers Board      Cache   Translate Page      

Ken Harrison, chairman and president of Promise Keepers, announced the appointment of Alveda King, niece of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, to the Promise Keepers board of directors. Promise Keepers, founded in 1990 by former University of Colorado football coach Bill McCartney, is a Christ-centered organization calling men to courageous and bold servant-leadership by sparking a movement that will mobilize millions of men to follow Christ into today's broken world as change makers for their families, churches and communities.

King grew up in the civil rights movement. Her family home in Birmingham, Alabama, was bombed, as was her father's church office in Louisville, Kentucky. She was jailed during the open housing movement. She sees the pro-life movement as a continuation of the civil rights struggle.

Currently, King is a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, serving as executive director of civil rights for the unborn for Gospel of Life, headed up by Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life. She is also part of the teaching and music ministry as well as former executive director of African Humanitarian Christian Fellowship, founded by her mentor, the late Pastor Allen McNair, founder of Believers' Bible Christian Church in Atlanta, Georgia.

King is a former college professor, holding a Master of Arts degree in business management, and was awarded an honorary doctorate from Saint Anselm College. She also served in the Georgia State House of Representatives, is a presidential appointee and also an accomplished author, actress and songwriter.

Alveda lives in Atlanta and is a regular columnist for Newsmax.com "Insiders" section as well as a Fox News contributor. She is the grateful mother of six and a blessed grandmother.

Ken Harrison said,

It's time for men to start acting like men. Calling men to be men isn't chauvinistic or somehow against women—although it is countercultural and controversial. But it is a fact that when men check out of their families, women suffer the most, as do their children—whether born or unborn. Our goal is to start a global movement of healthy masculinity sourced in absolute surrender to God that will empower and encourage men to be better fathers, husbands, friends and men.

Few people understand social movements like Dr. Alveda King. Few have sacrificed for change like Dr. Alveda King. But all-too-many women —including Dr. Alveda King—understand what happens to women and children when men fail to act like godly men. That's why I wanted Alveda to join the board of Promise Keepers—to remind us of the stakes at risk in our mission, the urgency of the need, and to provide the wisdom to help us chart a way forward.

Alveda King said:

A pressing civil rights issue of our day is the plight of the unborn, murdered by the millions, defenseless, voiceless and "choiceless." We are praying that men will rise up as husbands and fathers, leading to genuine life, liberty and happiness in Christ for all; born and unborn.

As my uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." The Promise Keepers message and movement is needed now more than ever, and I'm glad to serve by sharing insight, energy and prayerful support to the Promise Keepers board.

          Antique 1880s Cocaine Wine COCA MARIANI bottle forerunner of Coca Cola contained COCAINE by LastChanceAntiques      Cache   Translate Page      

111.99 USD

A 9" tall dark-green-colored cylinder-shaped great old original antique bottle that, back in the mid-late 1800's, contained a cocaine laced wine, a 'healthful tonic' beverage, as it was referred to back in the 1880's

EMBOSSING: The bottle is embossed in LARGE letters across the front side, "COCA MARIANI / PARIS". It also has the exact same embossing on the base.

AGE: This is an original antique bottle, a very early hand Blown Into Mold with Applied Lip (BIMAL) bottle, dating back to the 1880's or so. It has an exceptionally large crude drippy top on it, one of the characteristics that bottle collectors look for to enhance a bottle, and also a characteristic that dates it as a fairly early antique bottle!.

CONDITION: Bottle is in GOOD SOLID condition, a very HEAVY THICK-GLASS bottle. It has traces of wear and patina, that give it the look that only a century of time could produce. Otherwise it has NO cracks, chips, dings, damage, etc. Though many of these Coca Mariani bottles you see are heavy with stain and wear, beat and battered, chipped and nicked, looking more like a bowling pin than a bottle, this one is in exceptional condition, comparatively speaking..

This product was actually the forerunner of what we know today as 'COCA - COLA', here's the story .... :

In the 1860's, Angelo Mariani, an Italian businessman and chemist, was intrigued by the stimulating effects of the coca plant. He had some ideas about concocting a coca-wine beverage that he could market for healthful reasons. He started importing coca leaves from the Andes, soaked them with Bordeaux wine, and called his product Vin Mariani or Coca Mariani. The beverage contained a wine laced with cocaine. It was originally marketed as a ‘healthful tonic’ and became so popular that he soon became the worlds largest importer of coca leaves. By the 1890s, his Coca Mariani had made him a millionaire, and the product was even being sold in the USA. Coca Mariani was endorsed by many significant people including Jules Verne, William McKinley, Thomas Edison, Pope Leo XIII, and rumor has it that Mary Shelley even wrote the book "FRANKENSTEIN" while indulging in this beverage. The success rate of his product inspired many others to further explore and create similar concoctions, including one John Styth Pemberton, a 19th Century Atlanta Georgia pharmacist and the eventual inventor of Coca-Cola.

As a chemist in the 1800's, Pemberton had already been dabbling in patent (quack) medicines, manufacturing such products as Triplex Liver Pills, Globe of Flower Cough Syrup, and other patent medicines. Inspired by Coca Mariani’s success, Pemberton developed a product that he registered as French Wine Coca--Ideal Nerve and Tonic Stimulant, and he claimed that his tonic was the most Successful and Pleasant Tonic of the Age. Coincidently, the county that he practiced business in went dry in 1886, and though this tonic was developed strictly as a medicine, in 1886 he added another ingredient and turned it into a soft-drink or temperance drink. Pemberton named his new concoction "Coca-Cola". The original Coca Cola syrup / extract was added to soda water and, as an advertisement he wrote read, the drink was said to be an “Intellectual beverage and temperance drink that contains the valuable tonic and nerve stimulant properties of the Coca plant and Cola nuts, and makes not only a delicious, exhilarating, refreshing and invigorating beverage (dispensed from the soda water fountain or in other carbonated beverages) but also a valuable Brain Tonic, and cure all for nervous affections-sick head-ache, neuralgia, hysteria, melancholy".

So it is true, the original soft drink that we know of as Coca Cola or simply "Coke", did originally have cocaine in it according to its inventor, J. S. Pemberton Chemist, Sole Proprietor, Atlanta Ga."

Offered here for sale is a rare (empty) cocaine wine bottle that once contained Coca Mariani, the forerunner of Coca Cola.

          Ohio State Mock Draft Roundup: Nick Bosa Projected to 49ers, Dwayne Haskins Projected to Giants and Parris Campbell's Stock Rising After NFL Scouting Combine      Cache   Translate Page      
With the NFL Scouting Combine in the rear-view mirror, there’s a clear consensus on where each of Ohio State’s top two prospects will end up in the 2019 NFL draft.

Take a look at NFL mock drafts around the web, and the same two landing spots are projected for the Buckeyes’ two likely top-10 picks far more often than not: Nick Bosa to the San Francisco 49ers, and Dwayne Haskins to the New York Giants.

Beyond them, the other Buckeye who now looks to be the most likely to join Bosa and Haskins in the first round is Parris Campbell, who is increasingly garnering first-round mock draft projections after a spectacular performance at the combine in which he tied for the fastest 40-yard dash among all wide receivers (4.31 seconds) and was also among the event’s top performers in the broad jump (11 feet, 3 inches), vertical jump (40 inches) and 20-yard shuttle (4.03 seconds), putting his elite athleticism on display.

Dre’Mont Jones also has a chance to be a first-round pick, though he’s mostly projected to be selected in the second half of the second round as of now.

With NFL free agency officially starting Wednesday, and many players already agreeing to deals with new teams, the moves that are made over the next couple weeks will have an impact on each team’s needs for the 2019 NFL draft, and could influence where players ultimately end up in April.

The combine, though, is the only time before the draft that all the top prospects will be together in one setting – and an opportunity for some of the media’s top NFL draft insiders to gather intel that shape their draft projections – which makes it a good time to check in on where each of Ohio State’s top prospects are projected to be selected as of now.

For this edition of the NFL Mock Draft Roundup, we took a look at the following 16 mock drafts, all of which have been published since the NFL Scouting Combine and whose projections are detailed below:

Nick Bosa, DE

Crabbs: Round 1, No. 1 overall, Arizona Cardinals
Ledbetter: Round 1, No. 1 overall, Arizona Cardinals
The Athletic: Round 1, No. 1 overall, Arizona Cardinals
McShay: Round 1, No. 2 overall, San Francisco 49ers
Miller: Round 1, No. 2 overall, San Francisco 49ers
Jeremiah: Round 1, No. 2 overall, San Francisco 49ers
Reuter: Round 1, No. 2 overall, San Francisco 49ers
Easterling: Round 1, No. 2 overall, San Francisco 49ers
Kadar: Round 1, No. 2 overall, San Francisco 49ers
Lombardo: Round 1, No. 2 overall, San Francisco 49ers
Brugler: Round 1, No. 2 overall, San Francisco 49ers
Marino: Round 1, No. 2 overall, San Francisco 49ers
Norris: Round 1, No. 2 overall, San Francisco 49ers
Trapasso: Round 1, No. 2 overall, San Francisco 49ers
Wilson: Round 1, No. 2 overall, San Francisco 49ers
Draft Tek: Round 1, No. 2 overall, San Francisco 49ers

While Bosa was once considered the frontrunner to be the Arizona Cardinals’ selection with the No. 1 overall pick, many NFL insiders now believe that the Cardinals plan to draft Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with the top pick in the draft, as all but four of the 16 mock drafts we surveyed project.

Unlike our first NFL Mock Draft Roundup in February, when six out of 12 mock drafts projected Bosa to be the top pick, he’s only projected to be the top pick in three out of 16 mock drafts now, with Easterling projecting that the Cardinals will select Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams with the top choice.

What every one of these draft prognosticators agrees on, though, is that Bosa will be a top-two draft selection. The 49ers could certainly use a difference-making defensive end like Bosa, so if the Cardinals choose to draft Murray or someone else instead, San Francisco will likely pounce on the opportunity to draft the former Buckeye, who most analysts consider to be the draft’s best overall player.

Dwayne Haskins, QB

Reuter: Round 1, No. 3 overall, New York Giants
Easterling: Round 1, No. 3 overall, New York Giants
Lombardo: Round 1, No. 3 overall, New York Giants
McShay: Round 1, No. 6 overall, New York Giants
Miller: Round 1, No. 6 overall, New York Giants
Jeremiah: Round 1, No. 6 overall, New York Giants
Kadar: Round 1, No. 6 overall, New York Giants
Brugler: Round 1, No. 6 overall, New York Giants
Ledbetter: Round 1, No. 6 overall, New York Giants
Wilson: Round 1, No. 6 overall, New York Giants
The Athletic: Round 1, No. 6 overall, New York Giants
Draft Tek: Round 1, No. 6 overall, New York Giants
Norris: Round 1, No. 7 overall, Jacksonville Jaguars
Trapasso: Round 1, No. 10 overall, Denver Broncos
Marino: Round 1, No. 11 overall, Cincinnati Bengals
Crabbs: Round 1, No. 15 overall, Washington Redskins

The New York Giants were already the consensus projected landing spot for Haskins in our February mock draft roundup, and that consensus has only gotten stronger since the combine. It’s time that the Giants should be looking to draft Eli Manning’s successor to be their next starting quarterback, and Haskins – a New Jersey native and the draft’s best pocket passer – is seemingly a perfect fit.

With Murray now widely projected to be the No. 1 overall pick, the Giants might need to trade up in order to secure their chance to draft Haskins – the only other quarterback widely projected to be a top pick – which is why Easterling, Lombardo and Reuter all have the Giants trading with the team they share a stadium with, the New York Jets, to move up to the No. 3 overall pick.

Because none of the teams currently picking in the top five are expected to draft Haskins, however, there’s still a good chance that the Giants will have the opportunity to select Haskins at the sixth pick unless another team trades up in front of them to select him.

Only four of the 16 mock drafts that we surveyed have the Giants passing up on Haskins, but if they do, the Jaguars, Broncos, Bengals and Redskins are all teams that could also be in the market for their quarterback of the future (though the Jaguars seem unlikely now after they reportedly agreed to a four-year, $88 million deal with Nick Foles on Monday).

Parris Campbell, WR

Jeremiah: Round 1, No. 22 overall, Baltimore Ravens
McShay: Round 1, No. 27 overall, Oakland Raiders
Brugler: Round 1, No. 30 overall, Green Bay Packers
Wilson: Round 2, No. 36 overall, San Francisco 49ers
Lombardo: Round 2, No. 38 overall, Jacksonville Jaguars
Draft Tek: Round 2, No. 40 overall, Buffalo Bills
Trapasso: Round 2, No. 46 overall, Washington Redskins
Easterling: Round 3, No. 70 overall, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

While Bosa and Haskins were already widely projected to be top-six picks before the combine, and simply solidified their standing as top prospects in Indianapolis, Campbell is the Buckeye who appears to be making a real move up draft boards after an excellent combine performance.

Campbell was not projected as a first-round pick in any of the 12 mock drafts we surveyed in February, but is now projected as a first-round pick by three of the industry’s most connected NFL draft insiders – Daniel Jeremiah, Todd McShay and Dane Brugler – and was projected to be selected no later than the middle of the second round in all but two of the mock drafts we surveyed that include two rounds or more.

There’s no consensus landing spot for Campbell – and McShay’s projected landing spot, the Raiders, is probably less likely now that they made a big move to trade for one of the NFL’s best wide receivers, Antonio Brown – but it now appears very much within the realm of possibility that Campbell could be a late first-round pick, and it will be a surprise if he isn’t selected in the first two rounds.

Dre’Mont Jones, DT

Norris: Round 1, No. 28 overall, Los Angeles Chargers
Easterling: Round 2, No. 50 overall, Minnesota Vikings
Lombardo: Round 2, No. 50 overall, Minnesota Vikings
Draft Tek: Round 2, No. 50 overall, Minnesota Vikings
Trapasso: Round 2, No. 56 overall, New England Patriots

It’s unusual to see a consensus landing spot for a player who is widely projected to be drafted in the middle of the second round, but the popular projection for Jones in mock drafts so far has been the Minnesota Vikings’ 50th overall pick, where he lands in three of the five mock drafts that included the Ohio State defensive tackle this time around.

Even though the Vikings already drafted one defensive tackle from Ohio State last year, when they selected Jalyn Holmes in the fourth round and moved him inside, they are likely to be in the market for another defensive tackle – particularly, one like Jones who is a disruptive interior penetrator – after reportedly losing Sheldon Richardson to the Cleveland Browns in free agency.

It’s still possible that Jones could sneak into the late first round of the draft, but with unspectacular testing results at the combine and a draft class of defensive linemen that’s loaded with top prospects, it appears more likely that he will end up somewhere in Round 2.

Michael Jordan, OL

Draft Tek: Round 3, No. 77 overall, Carolina Panthers

Terry McLaurin, WR

Draft Tek: Round 4, No. 108 overall, New York Giants
Easterling: Round 4, No. 115 overall, Carolina Panthers

Isaiah Prince, OT

Draft Tek: Round 4, No. 117 overall, Atlanta Falcons

Mike Weber, RB

Draft Tek: Round 4, No. 129 overall, Dallas Cowboys

There haven’t been many seven-round mock drafts published since the NFL Scouting Combine, so we don’t have a good range of projections to look at for the Buckeyes who aren’t projected to be selected in the first two rounds. Draft Tek’s most recent computer simulation, however, projects that eight Buckeyes will be selected in the 2019 NFL draft – all within the first four rounds.

Once you get past the second round, it’s exceedingly difficult to project where a player ultimately will ultimately land, but Jordan, McLaurin, Prince and Weber all appear as though they should at least be drafted within the middle rounds.

Two other Buckeyes who should have a shot to be drafted, though they weren’t included in Draft Tek’s seven-round projection, are cornerback Kendall Sheffield and wide receiver Johnnie Dixon. Sheffield has been projected to be selected as early as the third round in earlier mock drafts, but he missed out on his chance to solidify himself as a middle-round pick when he suffered a partial pectoral tear during the bench press at the combine, which prevented him from participating in an on-field workout and could prevent him from participating in Ohio State’s March 20 pro day, as well.

          After He's Out Of The White House, Will Trump Plead Ignorance About The Illegality Of Taking Foreign Bribes?      Cache   Translate Page      



I admit I watch a lot of Maddow and pretty much embrace all the Russian conspiracy stuff she's constantly peddling. But I never needed her to tell me that Trump's is the swampiest presidency since Warren G. Harding's. Maybe Ulysses S. Grant's? Except in Trump's case, it's clearly the man at the top who's the most corrupt of all. And one thing that I never doubted for a second is that Trump takes bribes-- from any and all sources... including from abroad, a major no-no. He's been taking money from Russia, Ukraine, various pieces of the former Soviet Union, Saudi Arabia, Israel, the United Arab Emirates, China... anywhere he could get them from. Friday, The Guardian published a piece by Jon Swaine, Trump inauguration took money from shell companies tied to foreigners, that lays out some of the evidence regarding just the Inauguration aspect.



Short version of Swaine's exhaustive report: Shell companies were created to mask foreign bribes that poured into the pockets of Trump and his corrupt family. "The Guardian," he wrote, "has identified the creators of three obscure firms that contributed money to Trump’s inaugural committee, which collected a record $107 million as he entered the White House in 2017. There was a lot more foreign money than the 3 instances Swaine dug into.
The three companies each gave $25,000 to Trump’s inaugural fund. At least one of the contributions was made for a foreign national who appears ineligible to make political donations in the U.S.

A spokesman for Thomas Barrack, the chairman of Trump’s inauguration committee, declined to comment. The contributors denied wrongdoing.

Federal prosecutors in New York and the attorney generals of New Jersey and Washington DC have in recent weeks issued subpoenas to the committee, demanding records and information on its contributors and spending.

U.S. election law prohibits non-resident foreigners from contributing to political campaigns, including inaugurations. Donors or campaigns who “knowingly and willfully” breach this rule may be fined or prosecuted.

One of the $25,000 donations to Trump’s inauguration was made through a Delaware shell company for a wealthy Indian financier based in London, who appears to not hold US citizenship or residency.

Another was made by a company formed in Georgia by a lobbyist with connections to the Taiwanese government. His wife said the firm was funded by Chinese investors. One of their daughters was later given an internship in Trump’s White House, which they said was unrelated to the donation.

A third $25,000 contribution was made through a company formed anonymously in New York by an Israeli real estate developer who has helped other foreign developers with legal issues in the U.S. The Israeli developer said he held U.S. residency, commonly known as a “green card,” which permitted him to contribute legally.

Ann Ravel, a former commissioner at the federal election commission (FEC), said the use of anonymous companies was the biggest problem for authorities trying to ensure transparency and legality in political donations.

“We need stronger regulation,” said Ravel. “But our campaign finance system is structured to not let us find out who is behind these contributions.”

Authorities including Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 US election, are looking into issues around foreign money in American politics and possible attempts to buy influence with Trump’s administration.


A Washington-based lobbyist, Sam Patten, admitted last year that he illegally funnelled $50,000 to Trump’s inauguration from a Ukrainian oligarch. Patten, a former colleague of the convicted ex-Trump aide Paul Manafort, pleaded guilty to lying to Congress and failing to register as a foreign agent.

One $25,000 contribution to Trump’s inaugural fund came from a shell company tied to Cyrus Vandrevala, a Mumbai-born financier based in London. Vandrevala has said he funds property developments in India, where Trump owns luxury towers.

Vandrevala’s father-in-law, Niranjan Hiranandani, is one of the wealthiest figures in Indian real estate. He currently serves as president of an influential real estate industry lobby group in the country.

In an interview published days after Trump’s inauguration, Hiranandani said he hoped the new president would not hinder India’s real estate industry by restricting US visas. He suggested it was unlikely Trump would “want to do something that can have a negative impact on his ongoing projects in India.”

Vandrevala, 46, has an Indian passport and declares his nationality as Indian, according to business records obtained from authorities in Delhi. A source familiar with his arrangements said he did not hold U.S. citizenship or a “green card.”

The contribution appears to have paid for two VIP tickets to Trump’s inauguration. He and his wife, Priya, attended the event in Washington and also enjoyed a “private breakfast” with Trump, according to an article in the UK’s Asian Lite newspaper, which was written by a veteran Indian reporter who knows the Vandrevalas.

Another British-Asian newspaper, Eastern Eye, reported Vandrevala was “friendly with Trump’s daughter Ivanka.” Editors did not respond to questions about the source of that information. The White House did not respond to an inquiry.

The link between the contribution and Vandrevala is hidden in the public record. FEC filings list a $25,000 donation from a limited liability company (LLC) calling itself Sierra Vista. Its stated address is a suburban office park in Wayne, Pennsylvania.



Vandrevala’s U.S. investment company, Intrepid Capital Partners, has an office at the same complex in Wayne. Separately, an LLC named Sierra Vista 1 has also cited the office park as its address in business records.

Sierra Vista 1 was formed in Delaware, a state renowned for its low-tax and high-secrecy regime, in which companies are not required to disclose the names of officers, directors or owners.

The only person named in paperwork filed to Delaware when Sierra Vista 1 was set up in 2014 was John Teaford, a businessman who has worked on several Vandrevala ventures since the 1990s.

An executive at Intrepid Capital Partners, who requested anonymity because he was not authorised to speak to the media, said Sierra Vista 1 was an investment vehicle funded with Vandrevala’s money.

Vandrevala did not respond to emails and messages left at his office in London. Reached by telephone and asked whether he handled Sierra Vista’s payment to the inauguration for Vandrevala, Teaford said: “I probably did.”

Intrepid Capital Partners has a property arm, ICP Real Estate, which was created to finance developments in India. It claimed to be amassing a $7bn investment fund for building homes and has targeted the cities of Mumbai and Pune, both of which are home to Trump-branded towers.

Donald Trump Jr, the president’s eldest son, has described India as “the biggest push for our organisation.” The Trump company lists four Indian developments in its portfolio. A visit to the country last year by Trump Jr incurred almost $98,000 in publicly funded security costs.

Two months before election day in 2016, a new shell company was registered in Georgia. The company, Jan Castle LLC, was formed by a man named David Sean, who paid the $100 fee and signed the simple one-page form required by the state.

Sean listed his office address as a numbered “suite” on a street that runs past a country club in Sandy Springs, one of the country’s wealthiest suburbs.

The state’s paperwork said explicitly that a physical address was required-- a mailbox was not acceptable. But Sean’s address was, in fact, a mailbox inside a shipping store on a strip mall. Sean, a Taiwanese-American businessman, is based more than 2,000 miles away in southern California and is also known as Pong Hsiang.

Shortly before Christmas in 2016, Jan Castle LLC contributed $25,000 to Trump’s inauguration fund.

Sean, 59, said he was a US citizen. He declined to discuss the activity of Jan Castle or the status of any other people involved in the company, and the Guardian was unable to locate records on either.

But Sean’s wife, Joann, said in a brief telephone interview in late January that Sean created Jan Castle for three Chinese investors. Sean later denied his wife had said this. The company’s original filing to Georgia identified someone named Jianning He as its “organizer,” but gave only the same mailbox address as contact information.

Sean rejected requests over several weeks to discuss the contribution to Trump’s inauguration. Eventually he agreed to a meeting in person, but then changed his mind. Finally, in a series of text messages, Sean said: “I refuse to collude with Chinese communists and insist [on] investment with no condition attached.”

He went on to say: “My company objective is to take back stolen trillion dollar from communist China and put into manufacturing sector in United States. And I will work hard to achieve this mission objective til the day I am perished from the earth.”

Sean, who describes himself as an enthusiastic Trump supporter, also provided copies of complaint letters he said he had sent to the FBI, the CIA, the FEC and the IRS, requesting that each agency investigate the author of this article.

One of Sean’s daughters carried out a White House internship last year. She posted photographs to social media, including one of her class of interns posing with Trump. Sean said the internship had no link to the contribution.

During the 1990s, Sean worked in Taiwan as a consultant for the Hsinchu Science Park, according to his résumé. The park was developed by the Taiwanese ministry of science and technology from the 1980s as its answer to Silicon Valley.

Later, according to the résumé, Sean became a “US federal government relations consultant.” Records filed to Congress say that from 2012-14, he registered as a lobbyist in Washington, representing his own financial advisory firm.

In some lobbying filings, Sean registered jointly with an associate named Johnny Lu, who was said to be an “international trade consultant.”

Lu, who is also known as Lu Zhongying, is an adviser to Taiwan’s overseas community affairs council, according to a Taiwanese government spokeswoman in California. Lu did not respond to messages left with his family. A cellphone registered in his name did not accept incoming calls.


The Swamp Revisited by Nancy Ohanian

The pair told an ethics watchdog they were lobbying on issues such as international trade and foreign investment in the US. They reported lobbying the White House, Congress, and government agencies including the bureau of export administration and the federal trade commission. They did not list any foreign clients.

Records obtained from state authorities across the US show Sean has used at least 10 mailboxes around California, Florida, Georgia, Nevada and Wyoming to open many other companies over the past two decades. The purpose of some of the companies was unclear. One named Johnny Lu as president.

In 2015, Sean created a company named Global Prosperity Foundation Corp from the mailbox near Atlanta. He told regulators it would “facilitate communication with US major trading partner’s trading organizations and promote the investment advantages of United States” [sic]. It was closed shortly before the donation to Trump’s inaugural fund was made.

Another $25,000 came into Trump’s inaugural fund three days before the president’s swearing-in from a company named New York State Property Management Corporation. The company gave as its address a house in the Long Island town of Hewlett, close to John F Kennedy airport.

A company with that name is registered with New York authorities at a small office building elsewhere in the region. The Guardian traced the firm back to Elon Lebouvich, an Israeli businessman in his mid-40s, who is involved in New York real estate.

According to court records, Lebouvich has also gone by other names, including “Allen Lebo”, and has served as a representative for a family of wealthy Moroccan investors in US legal disputes. A member of the family declined to discuss their relationship.

Lebouvich is currently developing a $5m retail property in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, according to sources familiar with his work. According to city records, the building is owned by an LLC controlled by the 74-year-old mother of Lebouvich’s attorney. The attorney and his mother declined to comment.

In a brief telephone interview, Lebouvich said his $25,000 contribution paid for two tickets to the inauguration for “me and somebody else.” He would not say who used the second ticket. When asked if he was entitled to contribute, he said: “I don’t have the time to talk about it” and ended the call.

In a subsequent email, Lebouvich said he had held permanent US residency for about five years, which would mean he was entitled to contribute. He declined to discuss the contribution and threatened legal action.

The FEC has seemed unwilling to actively guard against foreign contributions in US politics. In 2017, two dissenting commissioners said the FEC had failed to properly investigate a complaint alleging foreigners donated $55,000 through LLCs to a campaign group supporting a congressman.

The commission is understaffed. All four current commissioners have served well beyond their six-year term limits. For the past year, the FEC has operated with four commissioners instead of six because Trump has not filled two vacant seats.

Ellen Weintraub, the FEC chairwoman and the only sitting Democratic commissioner, has frequently criticised her colleagues for what she views as an unwillingness to adequately regulate campaign finance, including the threat of foreign money.

In a letter to Congress sent last September, Weintraub said the FEC was “naively and dangerously” ignoring the reality of foreign interference and had no plan to counter it.

“This situation will not improve until this commission has at least four members who are willing to enforce existing law barring foreign-national political involvement and address dark money,” Weintraub wrote.

Staying on a hotel right next to a busy airport is something I have never done in my life. Luckily for me, a training that i decided to take a few months back took place on a hotel overlooking Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport, world's busiest airport for more than a decade. And since my room had an excellent view of the take-off run, i decided to take advantage of it and try a few panning shots. This was the very first panning atempt for me and as you can imagine, i took quite a few photos with onle a couple of them being worth posting. Now I am not an aviation expert so I have literally no clue what this aircraft or other details about it so if anyone knows that kind of stuff, please feel free to provide info on a comment and I will add it to the description.

          Ray Allen MVP?      Cache   Translate Page      
June 2008

Ray Allen MVP?

Now, 106 games into this Celtics season, Allen is coming off an outing in which he went the Full Monty, an Iversonian Game 4 effort in which he played the entire 48 minutes. In the Finals, Allen is averaging 43.5 minutes a game, more than any player on either team, including the otherworldly Kobe Bryant (42.8). He looks faster and quicker than most anyone else on the court, and his legs look none the worse for wear.

Old dog, new tricks.



``There was a point out there in the game where I knew I wasn't coming out, and I just said I have to suck it up,'' Allen said of his Game 4 performance. ``I have plenty of time to rest the next couple of months, so suck it up.''

Funny, isn't it? Relatively early in the Detroit series, when Allen was struggling badly, Rivers made the decision to keep Allen on the bench during some pivotal moments of the series. Now, the coach can't bring it upon himself to take the old man off the floor. In his last six games, Allen is 40-of-75 from the field (53.3 percent) and 20-of-39 from 3-point distance (51.3) while averaging a team-leading 21 points per game. He has even grabbed 5.6 rebounds a contest, including nine in Game 4 against the Lakers.

Maybe, in retrospect, what we have here is not an old Ray Allen but, rather, the Ray Allen of old.

``Well, I think as a team, I said earlier that we grew. We've grown all year from the regular season,'' Allen said. ``As for myself, you know, I think all year it's just been one of those seasons for me where I was just playing off of Paul and Kevin and just making sure that I filled the gaps. We were going for those guys on the post and I had to find my offense. (In the playoffs), Atlanta wasn't as tough, but when we hit Cleveland, Cleveland did everything they could to take me out of the offense.

``As tough as it was, as frustrating as it was, I had to figure out ways to make plays for the team. That was a learning point for all of us, making sure that we made plays for the team and just did the simple things over and over again. Again, we got through that and we fought Detroit, a tough Detroit team. So there's been a great progression of growth throughout the regular season to each round of the playoffs for us.''

For the Celtics now, there is just one step remaining.

And the farther they travel, the younger Ray Allen looks.

          Help with a first time owl nesting box      Cache   Translate Page      
I live just within the city limits of Atlanta and many years I hear Barred Owls and in some years I've been able to spot them. I decided to splurge and buy a barred owl box from Wild Birds Unlimited but I have a bunch of questions regarding how to properly mount it, placement, maintenance and attracting the owls to it.

First, here are some pictures of the box. https://imgur.com/a/5rdrGRX

As you can see, it has two mounting loops on the back. Should I just use large screws and drill two into the tree pushing against these loops? Should I use some sort of chain to hang it on? I'm not super handy so any advice on how to do this well would be helpful. (I have a 20 foot ladder, so I should definitely be able to get it up at a decent height).

Secondly, does it truly matter which direction it faces? I guess ideally I'd have it face our house, but it'd be facing west if I did that. Should I place it just above some limbs, for the owls to hang out on if possible, or would placing it on a very open part of the tree that is far from any limbs ok? I've seen some videos where people nail on limbs to the front under the opening, for the babies to potentially perch on. Is this recommended or unnecessary?

Next, there is no way to open the box to clean it out...this seems odd to me. Do I or should I ever get on a ladder and peek in? Put my arm in? This seems like a bad idea for a variety of reasons, right? Any advice here would be helpful.

Finally, how should I go about enticing the owls to the area? We have plenty of rodents, and a small stream within 50 yards of the house, so that probably helps but if there are other ways to make the presence of the box known, what should I do?

Thanks so much for any and all advice.

          Heartbeat abortion bans move forward in Tennessee, Georgia      Cache   Translate Page      

Atlanta, Ga., Mar 12, 2019 / 12:09 am (CNA).- Lawmakers in Georgia and Tennessee have advanced bills that would ban most abortions when a fetal heartbeat is detected, usually around six weeks of pregnancy. Should they become law, both are expected to face legal challenges, as courts have historically ruled similar laws unconstitutional.

House Bill 481 passed the Georgia House by a vote of 93-73 last Thursday and now moves to the Senate, according to WSB-TV Atlanta. Governor Brian Kemp released a video message supporting the bill shortly after its passage.

The bill includes exceptions for pregnancies that are the result of rape or incest— which would be demonstrated by a police report filed by the woman— as well as when a pregnancy is deemed to threaten the life of the mother or to be “medically futile.”

The Georgia Health and Human Services Committee tabled a second piece of legislation that would have created a “trigger law” to ban abortion if Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that found a Constitutional right to abortion, is overturned by the Supreme Court.

Georgia House Democrats turned their back on Republican Rep. Ed Setzler as he introduced the heartbeat bill in the house chamber. Several Democrats had already walked out in protest of the bill.

In Tennessee, House Bill 77 passed the legislature 65-21 the same day and continues to the Senate. Gov. Bill Lee has said he will sign the heartbeat bill into law if it makes it to his desk.

Tennessee’s Catholic bishops chose to oppose the state’s heartbeat bill over concerns that it would not stand up to judicial scrutiny. Tennessee Right to Life, the state’s leading pro-life group, also opposed the bill.

“While we wholeheartedly support the intention of the ‘Heartbeat Bill’ being considered by the Tennessee Legislature, we must also be prudent in how we combat the pro-abortion evil that dwells in our society,” the bishops wrote in a Feb. 26 open letter.

The bishops cited similar laws in other states that were signed into law but never went into effect because of legal challenges. In those cases, the laws were found to be unconstitutional, and the state was forced to pay significant sums of money to the lawyers representing the pro-abortion challengers to the laws.

Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain, has already said they will file suit against Tennessee if the heartbeat bill becomes law. The American Civil Liberties Union has also vowed to challenge heartbeat bills in court in several states.

As an alternative, the bishops voiced “urgent support” for the “Human Life Protection Act,” an bill which would, in the event that Roe were overturned, trigger an automatic ban on abortion in the state.

The Georgia and Tennessee heartbeat bills join a growing list of legislation recently passed in other states, some of which the courts have already thrown out.

In January, a district judge struck down Iowa’s heartbeat abortion law, which Gov. Kim Reynolds had signed last May. The law had not yet gone into effect because of a legal challenge from the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa, the abortion provider Planned Parenthood of the Heartland and the Iowa City-based Emma Goldman Clinic, which also performs abortions.

The Kentucky House is considering a heartbeat bill that the Senate passed last month. If the bill becomes law, an examination would be required before an abortion to determine whether the unborn baby’s heartbeat can be detected. If so, an abortion would be illegal, unless the mother’s health is determined to be in danger.

Ohio lawmakers reintroduced a heartbeat bill last month after former Gov. John Kasich vetoed a previous version in December. Ohio’s new governor, Mike DeWine, has reportedly expressed support for the measure.

Missouri lawmakers are currently considering a bill that includes a provision banning abortion if either a heartbeat or brain function can be detected.

The Arkansas legislature passed the first heartbeat-based abortion ban in 2013, and also voted to override a governor’s veto of the bill. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit ruled it was unconstitutional and the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal.

Maryland, Minnesota, Florida, West Virginia, Mississippi, Illinois, and South Carolina are currently considering heartbeat legislation.

Per la seconda sera consecutiva, esco nel fresco norvegese zampettando sulla neve, attraverso la piazza che separa l'hotel dove alloggio dallo Spektrum, ed eccomi, stavolta seduto sulle gradinate, per assistere, stavolta spero, ad un concerto completo dei Mastodon. Visto che ero a Oslo per i Madrugada, a suo tempo ho deciso di allungare la permanenza di un giorno, e di vedermi per intero i Mastodon (forse vi ricordate che quando li vidi a Stoccolma, poco più di un anno fa, non stavo bene e me ne andai dopo qualche canzone), visto che stavolta non passeranno dall'Italia, e che ad aprire, oltre ai già visti e molto apprezzati Mutoid Man, ci saranno i norvegesi Kvelertak, una delle band "giovani" più interessanti, anche se reduci del recente cambio di cantante. Quindi, siamo qua, ottima forma fisica, seduti comodi, e pronti al via. Lo Spektrum non è assolutamente pieno, anzi, con un gioco di teloni, è stato "ridotto" a livello di gradinate (sono semplicemente coperte, in modo che l'impatto non sia troppo triste, ma questo è un espediente che ho visto usare anche all'Alcatraz a Milano). Nota interessante, che ho evinto la sera precedente: ai banchi del merchandise non si può pagare con i contanti, solo carta di credito. Che paese meraviglioso.
Orario perfetto, ecco i 30 minuti concessi ai Mutoid Man, che però sono "orfani" di Ben Koller (batterista anche dei Converge, reduce da un incidente al polso, e ancora in riabilitazione - le band dove milita hanno organizzato un crowdfunding sui social per pagare le spese mediche...Koller come gli altri è statunitense e lì funziona così, come sapete): lo rimpiazza l'ottimo Chris Maggio (Wear Your Wounds, Trap Them), che si cala a dovere sia ai ritmi, sia verso l'attitudine cazzara del trio. Il pubblico è ancora sparuto, e Stephen deve sollecitare e solleticare un po' i presenti, ma la resa sonora è come sempre, da grandi professionisti. Mi pare di notare un grande affiatamento tra le tre band che dividono il palco per questo tour europeo, tra l'altro, per i richiami che si fanno.
Qualche decina di minuti di cambio palco, ed ecco i Kvelertak, con le loro tre chitarre e il loro metal sghembo ma efficace. Ivar Nikolaisen, che ha rimpiazzato il primo cantante Erlend, è inarrestabile sia sul palco che oltre il palco (si calerà più volte tra le prime file), e l'impatto è davvero d'effetto. Il fatto di giocare in casa fa ovviamente in modo che il pubblico reagisca in maniera più rumorosa, ma insomma, i ragazzi se lo meritano, sono interessanti sia come proposta sonora, che come resa dal vivo. Avanti così.
Eccoci quindi al piatto principale della serata: i Mastodon da Atlanta, Georgia. Palco bello grande e spazioso, visual che sembrano disegnati da un Robert Crumb in un trip fantasy, belle luci. Scaletta bilanciatissima tra i loro dischi (niente da The Hunter, ma addirittura un pezzo, Toe to Toes, dall'ultimo EP Cold Dark Place), suoni perfetti che fanno apprezzare il fatto che sono quattro ottimi musicisti, ma, devo ammetterlo, un grandissimo difetto: le voci. Troy se la cava, seppur non sia il massimo, ma quando canta Brann, è una catastrofe. Una band di questa caratura, con questo successo, non può permetterselo. Credo sia giunta l'ora di pensare ad un cantante vero. Ecco perché, dopo circa 45 minuti di concerto e ben 12 pezzi snocciolati, arriva sul palco Scott Kelly direttamente dai Neurosis, per le ultime sei canzoni (Scorpion Breath, Crystal Skull, Aqua Dementia, Crack the Skye, Diamond in the Witch House, Blood and Thunder), 30 minuti circa nei quali sembra di assistere ad un altro concerto, decisamente migliore. Terminato il set, la band saluta, e Brann, con un mazzo di bacchette da distribuire in mano, si prende tre minuti da entertainer, facendo praticamente un breve show da stand up comedian: se non fosse un così bravo batterista, direi che ha sbagliato mestiere. Soddisfazione quindi a metà, e un sollecito ai Mastodon per trovare urgentemente una soluzione per il canto.



So here we are at the main course of the evening: the Mastodon from Atlanta, Georgia. A large and spacious stage, visual that seems to be designed by a Robert Crumb in a fantasy trip, beautiful lights. Set list very balanced between their records (nothing from The Hunter, but even a track, Toe to Toes, from the last EP Cold Dark Place), perfect sounds that make you appreciate the fact that they are four excellent musicians, but, I must admit, a very great defect: the voices. Troy hold enough, though it's not the best, but when Brann sings, it's a catastrophe. A band of this caliber, with this success, can not afford it. I think it's time to think of a real singer. That's why, after about 45 minutes of concert and 12 tracks, Scott Kelly arrives on stage directly from Neurosis, for the last six songs (Scorpion Breath, Crystal Skull, Aqua Dementia, Crack the Skye, Diamond in the Witch House, Blood and Thunder), about 30 minutes in which it seems to attend another concert, much better. After the set, the band greets, and Brann, with a bunch of drumsticks by the hand, ready to be distributed, takes three minutes as an entertainer, practically doing a short stand-up comedian show: if he were not such a good drummer, I'd say he chosen the wrong craft. So half satisfaction, and a reminder to Mastodon to urgently find a solution for singing.

When veteran Atlanta broadcast news anchor Judy Pierce joins a celebrity gossip website, she lands a major interview with volatile superstar Shawn Blake. The embattled entertainer then invites her into a reckless and unfiltered world that changes her life and career for the worse. Reported of having gang affiliations, domestic violence disputes, multiple child support cases and murder charges all of which never stick in court Blake is viewed by some as Hollywood s next Denzel Washington. But is this up-and-coming and troubled actor all that he's rumored to be a real badass or is it only an act? Seeking confirmation, Judy gets involved in his all access invitations, and the fallout of rumors and social media attacks begin to unravel her family and job security. With a six-figure income, a dedicated husband, a solid reputation and two children in grade school, Judy has far too much to lose. Already in too deep, she finds herself in the middle of Shawn s volatile world of crime, desperate associations and public slander. Wishing she had never met the man, Judy scrambles to regain her sanity, while protecting her family... and her life.

We need concept design sketches for the front of a new curling building, so that we can complete a fundraising proposal. The building itself is just a metal box 100' x 180' x 20' high and that's what we're trying to dress up. Someone driving by should know what the building is for and the entrance should be obvious and welcoming. The short side (100') will be facing the road and the entrance will likely be on the corner, or near the corner. Curling is the winter Olympic sport with the granite stones and sweeping. Sample pics attached are Denver Curling Club's building, a rough drawing showing the likely entrance location, and some other random curling buildings. AtlantaCurlingClub.com (Prize: 200)

First wave of layoffs hits local Georgia-Pacific plant

PORT HUDSON - Paper company Georgia-Pacific says about half of its roughly 650 planned layoffs will take effect Tuesday at its Port Hudson facility.

A spokesperson for the Atlanta-based company said 260-270 employees will officially leave the site Tuesday, with 50-55 more salaried employees leaving Friday.

"We live out here together, we spend a lot of time at this place," said Kendall Gerald, the union president. "To see this happen is tough."

Gerald is one of the fortunate ones keeping his job. He&rsquo;s hoping the company can bounce back from this.

"Do the expected projects that they're saying and hopefully we can maybe start hiring people back and we can increase productivity."

The second wave of layoffs is expected to hit on mid-April. Other employees are expected to leave between those dates based on when their work is complete.

Georgia-Pacific says it will continue to operate and invest in the Port Hudson mill to support its growing consumer tissue and towel business. The company will retain approximately 300 employees to manage those operations.

          Former Mets Pitcher: Johan Santana (2008-2013)      Cache   Translate Page      
Johan Alexander Santana was born on March 13th 1979 in Tovar, Venezuela. The six foot left hander, was discovered by the Houston Astros but they left him unprotected & he was drafted away by the Florida Marlins.

In a deal of first & second round picks, he was traded to the Minnesota Twins for Jared Camp & cash. 

He soon developed his nasty change up which has become the best change in baseball. The pitch is tough for a batter to drive the ball on and to close to the strike zone for him to take. It swirls causing batters to lunge out at it, usually swinging & missing. He also throws a fast ball in the lower to mid nineties with the same delivery which also confuses hitters. Santana started out as a reliever in the Twins bullpen from 2000-2003. 

In 2000 he appeared 30 games going 2-3 with a high 6.49 ERA. In 2001 he was with the Twins from April to early July appearing 15 games going 1-0 with a 4.74 ERA, 28 strike outs in 43 innings.

In those first two seasons he only made nine starts. He was thrown into the starting rotation by manager Ron Gardenhire & it all came together. First in 2002 in 14 starts & 27 over all appearances he was 8-6 but now he struck out 137 batters in just 108 innings pitched & posted a 2.99 ERA. 

In 2003 he went 12-3 winning his last eight starts in a row, leading the Twins to a playoff berth. He struck out 169 batters (8th in the league) in 158 innings pitched while posting a 3.07 ERA. In the ALDS he pitched five scoreless innings in the opener but got no decision in the Twins 3-1 victory. He returned but took the loss in the final Game #4. 

In 2004 he had a slow first half of the season, pitching well but ending up at 7-6. He then went on to tied an MLB record going an incredible 13-0 in the second half of the season, leading the Twins to another playoff berth. In the second half he averaged eleven strikeouts per nine innings & posted a 1.13 ERA. He pitched eight innings three times allowing less than two earned runs each time. That season he struck out ten or more batters in a game twelve times, posting 12 or more five times with a high of 14 against Baltimore on September 19th. 

Santana won his first Cy Young Award, going 20-6 and leading the AL in both ERA (2.61) & strikeouts (265) pitching in 228 Innings (second in the AL) with one complete game shutout. His 265 strike outs were a club record passing Bert Blylevens old mark of 258 in 1973. 


Post Season: He went on to beat the A.L. New York club in Game #1 of the ALDS pitching seven shutout innings. He began the final Game #4 but go no decision. It was his last post season appearance to date.

 In 2005 the Twins weak offense didn’t score many runs, he went 16-7 (5th most wins in the al) and led the league for the third straight year with 238 K’s. He was second in the league with a 2.87 ERA, he pitched 232 innings (2nd in the AL) & tossed three complete games. Santana was always better in the second half, this year was no exception as he went 9-2 after the break pitching at least eight innings six times. 

On August 12th in Oakland he pitched a three hit shut out against the A's , striking out none. He came back to strike out ten White Sox in Chicago in his next start. He would get 13 strike outs the next time he faced them at home in September. 

Santana was spectacular in 2006 winning his second CY Young Award, becoming the first pitcher since the Mets’ Doc Gooden to win the Pitching Triple Crown. He was tops in wins (19) Ks (245) & ERA (2.77).

After the All Star break he once again had an incredible run, going went 10-1 posting an ERA under two. In that stretch he never allowed more than three earned runs in a game, and went at least eight innings three times. On August 15th he threw a three hit eight inning shutout against the Indians at the Metro Dome. On the season he had nine games where he posted double figures in strike outs, including three in a row in early May. For the third straight year he allowed the fewest walks & hits per innings in the American League. He also led the league in innings (233) starts (34) & strike outs per nine innings for the third straight year (9.4). 


In 2007 Johan pitched against the New York Mets at Shea Stadium in an interleague game that summer. On the team bus on the way to the game, Twins broadcaster the former great pitcher, Bert Blyleven said he would shave his head if Johan pitched a shutout.

From a box seat at Shea, my brother & I watched Santana shut down the Mets in a four hit complete game 9-0 shutout performance. Santana did the honors of shaving Blyleven’s head the next day. 
 That summer Johan made his third All Star team & went on to win his first Gold Glove Award. In a rain shortened game on the last day of the season, he ended a streak of pitching beyond the 5th inning in 123 straight starts. This incredible streak is the third longest in the past 50 years.

He finished the year at 15-13 with a 3.33 ERA, his highest since becoming a starter. He was still considered one of the games top pitchers & The small market Twins knew they wouldn’t be able to pay Johan the big salary. 

In the winter of 2008 he was traded to the New York Mets for prospects, Carlos Gomez, Phil Humber & Kevin Mulvey. In February the Mets gave him a huge six year $137 million deal to keep him pitching in New York. 
 Santana made his Mets debut on Opening Day 2008 in Florida against the Marlins. He allowed two runs on three hits over seven innings earning the 7-2 victory. He took losses in his next two outings but then came back with two straight wins. On May 10 although he gave up ten hits, he just surrendered three runs beating the Cincinnati Reds 4-2, for his first win at Shea Stadium.

A week later he went across town & beat the A.L. New York club in his first subway series matchup. He went into the 8th inning that day, allowing four runs on seven hits with five strikeouts in the 7-4 Mets win. On June 1st, he beat the Los Angeles Dodgers at home, for his 100th career victory at the age of 29. 

He then lost four straight decisions that month, three of them coming during inter league play. At the end of June he took a tough subway series loss at home, but the team only put up two runs for him, losing 3-2. 
 Up until that point, low run support & a horrible 2008 bullpen cost Santana at least five additional victories. From that point on he did it all himself. He would not lose another game all season & carried his pitching staff to within one game of a playoff berth. He would go 9-0 with three complete games & pitch into the 8th inning or beyond six times.

On August 17th he pitched a three hit shutout in Pittsburgh striking out seven Pirates in a 4-0 shut out. In his next start he pitched eight shut out innings against the Houston Astros, walking just one batter & leading his team to a 3-0 win. After a no decision effort on September 1st, he would pitch seven innings or more in five starts through the rest of the year, going 4-0 in the September pennant race. 

In an incredible performance of determination & team leadership he had one of his best Mets games on the next to last day of the season. Santana threw a three hit shutout against the Florida Marlins, striking out nine, to keep the Mets in playoff contention until the last game of the year. In his last two performances he had struck out nine or more batters giving him 206 on the year, making it five straight seasons with 200 plus K’s. 
 He finished the year at 16-7 leading the league in ERA (2.53) innings pitched (234) & games started (34). He was second in the league in strikeouts (206) & shutouts (3) & third in complete games (3). He also came in third place in the CY Young voting. As soon as the season ended, on October 1st he underwent a successful knee surgery for a torn meniscus. 

He returned in 2009 with an Opening Day victory at Cinergy Field in Cincinnati, pitching into the 6th inning allowing just one run on three hits with seven strike outs. In his next start he only allowed two runs while striking out 13 batters but the Mets couldn’t score any runs & he took a 2-1 loss. It was his loss first since the previous June.

In his next start against the Milwaukee Brewers he pitched seven scoreless innings not allowing any Brewer to get past first base. 

On April 24th, he beat the Washington Nationals striking out ten batters. On May 27th he struck out eleven Nationals, giving him his fourth double figure strike out game of the year.He won six of his next seven decisions and had an ERA just at 2.00 at the start of June. As the season went on he had arm trouble & as everything else went wrong for the 2009 Mets, Santana’s year was over in August. He needed to have bone chips removed from his elbow. He finished the year at 13-9 with 146 strike outs in 166 innings pitched, posting a 3.13 ERA. He was voted number three on a list of the Sporting News top 50 current players by a panel that included many Hall of Famers. 
 On Opening Day 2010 he beat the Marlins at Citi Field, and would have a strong April going 3-1 with a 2.08 ERA. On May 2nd he had the worst day of his career giving up ten runs to the rival Phillies in a nationally broadcast game. He settled down allowing just seven runs in his next five starts but only earned two victories going into July.

On July 6th he had his best day of the year beating the Reds at Citi Field with a three hit shutout while hitting his own first career HR. He went 3-0 with a 0.76 ERA until July 23rd, and had an 8-5 record with one of the league’s best ERA’s. 

In August he threw a four hit shutout at home against the Colorado Rockies and on September 2nd pitched his last game of the season. Another injury required him to need surgery for the third straight season. He missed all of the 2011 season at the major league level. A Slow rehab had him get two starts at A ball St. Lucie where he pitched five innings allowing a run on five hits. 

Santana returned to Spring Training 2012 with a lot of attention surrounding him. On Opening Day he excited Mets fans with a five inning two hit shut out performance against the Atlanta Braves. The Mets went on to a 1-0 win with a David Wright RBI single. In his next start he went another five runs allowing just one run to the Washington Nats but he was he was out deluded by Stephen Stasburg 1-0.

His next start in Atlanta was not as good, getting hot for four runs never making it out of the first inning. Two no decisions followed where he allowed just one earned run in 12.2 innings of work. In the month of May he pitched well enough to keep his ERA at a solid 2.75 but only had a 2-2 record to show for it. 

Then on June 1st, Santana made Mets history by throwing the first no hitter in team history. With all the great pitchers New York has had in its history, and its thirty seven one hitters (including two last year by R.A. Dickey) Santana was the first to toss a no hitter. 
 It happened on June 1st, 2012 in front of 27, 000 fans at Citi Field against the defending World Champion St. Louis Cardinals. Santana rolled along, with the help of a spectacular outfield catch by Whitestone Queen's born Mike Baxter, who got injured on the play.

Santana struck out eight & walked five along the way. As the late innings approached every Mets fan was sitting on the edge of their seats hoping to see history & what a thrill it was. In the 9th inning Matt Holiday lined out to center field, Allan Craig flew out to left & it all came down to Santana against David Freese. Freese went down swinging and the Mets had their finest moment of the 2012 season.

 In his next start he lost a subway series matchup & then won two straight games defeating the Rays in Tampa & shutting out a good Baltimore Oriole team for six innings in a 5-0 Mets win at Citi.

On June 30th he pitched a three hit eight inning shutout in Los Angeles to beat the Dodgers. At the end of July he sprained his ankle & was placed on the 15 day disable list. He lost what turned out to be his final five games of the year, giving up six runs or more each time,as he was shut down with inflammation in his lower back. With the Mets going nowhere his season ended in mid August. 

In 2012 Santana was 6-9 with a 4.85 ERA. In 21 starts he struck out 111 batters while walking just 39 in 117 innings of work. By far it was the worst statistical season for him since becoming a starter in his third season.

In 2013 the Mets were optimistic that Santana would be ready for Opening Day. But in Spring Training GM Sandy Alderson said that he would start the season on the disabled list. A few days later an MRI showed he had re-torn the capsule in his shoulder & another surgery was needed. Santana missed the entire season & in November of 2013 was granted free agency.

Anthropologists have long made the case that tool-making is one of the key behaviors that separated our human ancestors from other primates. A new paper, however, argues that it was not tool-making that set hominins apart - it was the miniaturization of tools. Just as tiny transistors transformed telecommunications a few decades ago, and scientists are now challenged to make them even smal

Thank you so much for all you do with researching the Battle of Franklin.My gg uncle fought in the Battle of Franklin. He was originally in the 2nd and 6th from Missouri. His original Captain was Weidermeyer from Osceola, Mo . They all enlisted in Springfield, Mo . Fought in all of the battles south. I think that once Weidermeyer’s brother was killed in Vicksburg, the Captain went to Texas. However the group continues south then fight in Atlanta. On their way home they fight in Franklin. He was 22 then. He was shot and taken prisoner on the 30th of November. During the March north to a POW camp he died. I would like further information on his unit and where he possibly was buried. In your research do you have anything that might help me? There was a series of movies on YouTube about the Battle of Franklin that I would live to see again. Really a great documentary. Wonder how to view it again? Thanks for your time Joy Sweigart Sent from my iPhone >

Whether a one day session, one week conference, or a month-long writing workshop writing related events are a good way to commune with other writers. They are opportunities to network and get your name out there. In some instances, you can meet and mingle with editors and agents. Some offer critiques or pitching sessions. Nowhere will you find a higher concentration of introverts enjoying each other's company.

Local conferences are a good place to meet potential critique groups or recruit members.

Some are free. Some require a fee. Some are more social than others. Many are for new writers, but a few dig deep into craft. You should choose an event that speaks to your needs and desires.

          Oh My! Misplaced Modifiers      Cache   Translate Page      

When I find misplaced modifiers in my own writing or in others (and usually I don't see it in my own until they are pointed out to me), I giggle like a delighted toddler. Everyone makes these grammatical goofs at one time or another. You find them in books, in signs, in Powerpoint presentations, in menu descriptions... the list goes on.

So, what is a misplaced modifier? If you ask Google, this is the definition that pops up:
a phrase or clause placed awkwardly in a sentence so that it appears to modify or refer to an unintended word.
 The best way to know them is to see them. Here is one example from dictionary.com:
Tall and handsome, the people looked at him with awe and admiration. 
The way this sentence is set up, "tall and handsome" describes "people," not "him." So what can you do to fix poor misplaced modifier, so it points to "him?" Here's one solution: Because he was tall and handsome, the people looked at him with awe and admiration.

Your Dictionary.com discusses modifiers and also has some great examples. I imagine the poor misplaced modifiers in the sentences below looking anxiously at their grammatical next-door neighbors and wondering how the heck they ended up in this neighborhood! (My commentary is in italics.)
  1. Eagerly awaiting her birthday, Mary's presents were all picked up and admired by Mary many times throughout the course of the day. Nnnnnoooooo those presents aren't jumping up and down in impatience, sorry. Mary is the one who just can't wait.
  2. She served sandwiches to the children on paper plates. What?? Those poor children! Forced to sit on paper plates! Oh wait. The sandwiches are on the plates.
  3. She saw a puppy and a kitten on the way to the store. Wow, I wonder if that puppy and kitten are heading for the pet food aisle… Okay, "she" was going to the store, got it.  
  4. Three offices were reported robbed by the Atlanta police last week. Time out! The police robbed the offices?? I don't think so. I do believe they reported the crime though. 
 One way to fix these awkward juxtapositions is to nudge the offending phrase so it cozies up to the noun (or verb) it's modifying, and then tinker as needed:
  1. Eagerly awaiting her birthday, Mary picked up and admired her presents many times throughout the day. 
  2. She served the children sandwiches on paper plates.
  3. On the way to the store, she saw a puppy and a kitten. 
  4. Last week, the Atlanta police reported that three offices were robbed.
The Blood Red Pencil has addressed misplaced modifiers twice in the past. You can read about them in the post Grammar ABCs: M is for Misplaced Modifiers, and in this book review of Excuse Me, Your Participle Is Dangling!

There is also a nice little YouTube video by Georgia State University about dangling modifiers here.

For some hilarious examples—because who among us can't use a chuckle once in a while?—check out the slide show on the Scribendi article "Illustrated Misplaced Modifier Examples to Make You Smile." There is also this Ragan's PR Daily article, "Hilariously misplaced modifiers and other blunders."

I leave you with this final awkward thought:
After eating all their food, we put the dogs outside. I'm sure these poor dogs joined the cat in #3 above and they all decided to go to the shop for more food, because, well, those greedy humans! 
Why did you eat my food?? Now I have to go to the store for more!

Copyright 2018 Fresh Air. To see more, visit Fresh Air . DAVID BIANCULLI, HOST: This is FRESH AIR. Next week, we'll be featuring interviews with some of the actors, writers and producers who have been nominated for Emmy awards this year, including comedy host John Oliver from HBO's "Last Week Tonight," supporting actor Brian Tyree Henry, who plays Paper Boi on FX's "Atlanta" and writer-producer Scott Frank, creator of the Netflix Western series "Godless." Today we'll end the show with my recent review of a TV segment by another of this year's Emmy nominees, James Corden, host of "The Late Late Show" on CBS. This segment in which Corden did a Carpool Karaoke visit with Paul McCartney was presented again in prime time this week as an expanded CBS special. Before it first aired, Corden tweeted that it was, quote, "quite possibly the best Carpool Karaoke we've done so far," unquote. As far as I'm concerned, there's no possibly about it. It is the best.

          Re: Market, Team, Product      Cache   Translate Page      

Right.

> What is an attractive market? One that exists today, or one that will be huge in the future?

Yes, that one gets me, for the successes of both Plenty of Fish and Amazon: Heck, before Plenty of Fish, and before the Internet and Web got going well, there was romantic matchmaking, and I saw the need for something better and got started. Heck, before Amazon got very far, I guessed that they were going for books, CD/DVDs, and a few more but not much beyond that.

I was wrong on both because I didn't see that in a few years so many people would have (i) Windows PCs with processors several times faster then before and main memory and disk several times larger, (ii) a good TCP/IP stack and Web browsers, (iii) via cable modem connections much faster Internet access speeds, and (iv) okay ability to pay over the Internet. So, net, suddenly, Plenty of Fish and Amazon could send LOTS of good, 600 x 800 pixel or so color JPG files, and Amazon could get PAID.

Maybe there were ways to see (i)-(iv) coming so soon, but I didn't see it.

Uh, there SHOULD have been ways:

For (i), the hardware, people were doing hard work there, and they knew what they were going for and about when people would have it. So, just have some chats with Intel, Microsoft, Western Digital, Dell, etc. From those 4, could have pulled together the picture.

For (ii), the TCP/IP stack, lots of people at Microsoft and Sun had to work for some years to make that real and knew years before what they were going for. There were lots of initially good enough Web browsers, if only Internet Explorer and Firefox.

For (iii), for the cable modems: Chat with Scientific Atlanta or whomever and the big cable operators and pull that together -- they both knew some years before the common man in the street what they were working on and what was coming. E.g., the cable operators had to put up big capex and opex bucks years in advance to make those speeds go from 300 bps, 9600 bps, 56 Kbps, to 20 Mbps.

For (iv), for the payments, lots of people in banking had to work hard to make that happen, and they knew what was coming.

Then the last link was just the JPG standard.

So, all the pieces were nearly out in plain sight if one just chatted with the right people. Maybe Bezos actually did that -- would be interesting to ask him.

So, that was a case when with some essentially just journalist level research could have seen the future coming.

           Comment on State’s proposed take over of Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport misguided by atlman       Cache   Translate Page      
No. The state paid for the GPA and GWCC with their own funds. They paid the construction, maintenance costs, property taxes and bond fees. They built it, they own it, they deserve the right to run it. The state did not build or pay for Hartsfield. Anyway, this isn't going to succeed. The city of Atlanta will tie this up in federal courts until the GOPers - Kemp, Trump etc. - are out of office. If a Democrat is president in 2020, there is no way the FAA would approve the takeover, just as the FAA did not approve the Charlotte takeover. And a Democratic legislature will just repeal this bill. So no. Give up this pipe dream. It will never happen.

           Comment on State’s proposed take over of Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport misguided by atlman       Cache   Translate Page      
90% of the airports are run by authorities. But 100% of airports are run by the bodies that bought the land, paid for their construction and pay for their ongoing maintenance. If the state wants the airport it is going to have to pay $25 billion for the land and assets, $3 billion for the bonds, property taxes and the annual ongoing maintenance. The state thinks that they are somehow going to be able to contrive a deal where they get to manage the airport while the city merely gets the revenue. Honestly that is never going to happen. If the state wanted an authority-run airport they should have built one themselves.

           Comment on Atlanta’s gentrification, now a challenge, started as sign of city’s spirit of civil rights by HL       Cache   Translate Page      
Hans Utz's response mentioned much of what I wanted to respond to regarding the concept of this article. Not being a native of Atlanta, I have still been able to see the transitions of certain areas based on when I searched for housing in the area upon my relocation. It is visually apparent that many of the areas have changed relative to that time. And several of those areas have almost completely changed demographics, perhaps less so in racial makeup than in average income but in both areas nonetheless. I have no factual data of the number of residents that have been displaced in this process. Even so, I challenge and caution leaders to be wary of low income displacements and work to develop diverse neighborhoods. I have seen cities that did not take heed and relocated areas from gentrified neighborhoods into few areas with affordable housing. This approach created concentrated areas of the city where crime was rampant and housing deteriorated, causing housing in other parts of the city to inflate rent costs further until housing for many was out of reach and homelessness expanded. As Atlanta continues to grow and develop as many experts predict that it will, let us not overlook those families in our society that may not have the resources to adapt to continued economic growth, certainly in areas where corporate housing is established. A book with title and an architect and city designer author I cannot recall at this time lectured that planning for the growth of a community without also planning for all residents will be a future community of limited human resources and therefore, failed businesses and communities. Atlanta can learn from other city's gentrification problems or become a lesson for others. Perhaps that choice has already been made but is it too late to reverse course?

Atlético de Alagoinhas foi campeão em 2018 | Foto: Reprodução / Facebook
A partir deste sábado (9), a bola vai rolar para a disputa da Série B do Campeonato Baiano. Canaã, Doce Mel, Galícia, Olímpia, PFC-Cajazeiras e Unirb vão brigar pelo título da competição e pela única vaga do tão sonhado acesso à elite do futebol da Bahia no ano que vem. A finalíssima está prevista para o dia 26 de maio. Canaã e Doce Mel fazem a partida de abertura a partir das 15h, no Estádio José Rocha, em Jacobina. No domingo (10), às 15h, é a vez do Galícia receber o Olímpia, em Pituaçu. E, às 17h, Unirb e PFC-Cajazeiras fecham a rodada inaugural, no Carneirão, em Alagoinhas.

Dos seis participantes, dois já foram campeões. o Galícia conquistou o troféu em três oportunidades, em 1985, 1988 e 2013. O outro é o Atlanta, que mudou de nome e agora se chama Doce Mel, ficou com o caneco em 1987. Já o PFC-Cajazeiras bateu na trave duas vezes ao perder a final nas edições de 2017 e 2018. Os outros três, que completam o certame, Canaã, Olímpia e Unirb vão estrear da competição.

Os seis clubes conseguiram finalizar suas inscrições com sucesso. Até a última quarta-feira (6), o Galícia tinha não o nome de nenhum jogador publicado no Boletim Informativo Diário da CBF, levantando a possibilidade de ser excluído da competição, já que o regulamento obrigava que os participantes tivessem pelo menos 18 atletas inscritos para a primeira rodada. Porém, o Demolidor de Campeões conseguiu regularizar seus atletas nesta quinta-feira (7), prazo final para terem condições de jogarem a estreia.

A Série B do Baiano será disputada em duas fases. A primeira, de classificação, os seis participantes se enfrentam em turno e returno no sistema de pontos corridos. Após a última rodada, os dois melhores da tabela vão se enfrentar na final. O título e o acesso serão decididos em dois jogos, ida e volta, sendo que o segundo duelo será na casa do dono da melhor campanha.

The original Twilight Zone aired on CBS from 1959 to 1964. The award-winning anthology series used science fiction, fantasy and horror stories to explore social issues of the day.

As previously reported, Peele's reboot of the series will feature an all star cast which includes Sanaa Lathan, DeWanda Wise, Jessica Williams, Damson Idris, Kumail Nanjiani, Adam Scott, Jacob Tremblay, and more. Peele will both host and narrate the series project.

          James Beard Play I LOVE TO EAT Continues Theatrical Outfit's Season Of Beauty      Cache   Translate Page      

Theatrical Outfit, located at The Balzer Theater at Herren's on Luckie Street in downtown Atlanta, continues its 2018-2019 Season of Beauty with the Atlanta premiere of I Love to Eat, Pulitzer Prize finalist James Still's revealing and irreverent peek into the life of celebrity chef James Beard. Set in the charismatic cook's Manhattan kitchen in the middle of a sleepless night, the play flashes back to Beard's appearances on the first live TV cooking program ever in 1946 and includes appetizers for seat holders who sit close. Hilarious and heartfelt, I Love to Eat, directed by Clifton Guterman, Theatrical Outfit's Associate Artistic Director, stars Atlanta stage veteran William S. Murphey as the foodie icon and runs April 10 - May 5, 2019.

1984. Manhattan. "In the beginning there was Beard," said Julia Child of the first TV chef whose charisma transformed him from aspiring actor to culinary expert. A flamboyant yet introverted gastronomist, James Beard was his own greatest promoter and harshest critic. He weathered shifts in foodie culture for half a century, and the award bearing his name today is craved by chefs worldwide. Drop into Beard's Greenwich Village kitchen for bean-spilling anecdotes, on-air flashbacks, and a salty voyage around the world of love, life, and comfort food. Sit close and sample a taste!

Theatrical Outfit's regular performances of I Love to Eat are Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30PM and Saturdays and Sundays at 2:30PM. Tickets range from $18-$51 and may be purchased online at www.theatricaloutfit.org or by calling 678.528.1500. Group pricing is available.

          PIPELINE Announces At Horizon Theatre      Cache   Translate Page      

Horizon Theatre Company is continuing its 35th Anniversary Season with production from the recipient of the MacArthur Foundation "Genius Grant" for 2018 - Dominique Morisseau! PIPELINE, a groundbreaking new play, will hit the Little Five Points stage from March 22 - April 21, 2019. PIPELINE is hailed by Village Voice as "A POWERFUL, PASSIONATE, AND INTELLIGENT NEW PLAY."

"Pipeline feels ripped from the headlines," say Marguerite Hannah, Associate Producer at Horizon, "but, this time we are allowed to witness the human backstory of a mother's fight for her teenage son and her high school students. It is an American story of a family operating in two worlds - the urban inner city education system where the mother works & the affluent private school in which her son attends. The story is set where life and well-meaning choices really exist. Rarely do we see this picture of the black family of today - the love, strength and hope behind the statistic we think we know well."

In Dominique Morisseau's PIPELINE, Nya Joseph is a dedicated, inner-city public high school teacher who is committed to her students' achievement, while she sends her only son, Omari, to a private boarding school. When Omari is involved in a controversial incident which threatens him with expulsion from his school, Nya is forced to reconcile Omari's actions, her own parental decisions, and the public and private school systems, as she rallies to save her son.

The wife/husband duo of Tinashe Kajese-Bolden & Keith Bolden lead a Suzi Award Winning creative team that includes scenic design from Moriah and Isabel Curley-Clay, projection design from Bradley Bergeron, and lighting design from Mary Parker.

PIPELINE will run March 22 - April 21, 2019 (Press Opening: March 29, 2019). Performances are Wednesday through Sunday (Wed-Fri at 8pm, Sat at 3pm & 8pm, Sun at 5pm). Tickets start at $30 for weekdays and $35 for weekends. $20 anytime for teens and full-time student under 25 with valid student ID. Prices are subject to change and will rise as performances fill up. Patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets early for best prices. Seating is general admission. Our intimate theatre is in the heart of Inman Park and Little Five Points at the corner of Euclid and Austin Avenues (1083 Austin Avenue NE, Atlanta, GA 30307), and includes FREE parking. Tickets and information are available at horizontheatre.com or 404.584.7450.

A mother's hopes for her son clash with an educational system rigged against him in PIPELINE, the riveting new play by Dominique Morisseau. Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, is committed to her students but desperate to give her only son Omari opportunities they'll never have. When a controversial incident at his upstate private school threatens to get him expelled, Nya must confront his rage and her own choices as a parent. But will she be able to reach him before a world beyond her control pulls him away? With profound compassion and lyricism, PIPELINE brings an urgent conversation powerfully to the fore. Don't miss this deeply moving story of a mother's fight to give her son a future - without turning her back on the community that made him who he is.

Dominique Morisseau is the author of The Detroit Project (A 3-Play Cycle) which includes the following plays: Skeleton Crew (Atlantic Theater Company), Paradise Blue (Signature Theatre), and Detroit '67 (Public Theater, Classical Theatre of Harlem and NBT). Additional plays include: Pipeline (Lincoln Center Theatre), Sunset Baby (LAByrinth Theatre); Blood at the Root (National Black Theatre) and Follow Me To Nellie's (Premiere Stages). She is also the book writer on the new musical Ain't Too Proud - The Life and Times of the Temptations (Berkeley Repertory Theatre). Dominique is an alumna of The Public Theater Emerging Writer's Group, Women's Project Lab, and Lark Playwrights Workshop and has developed work at Sundance Lab, Williamstown Theatre Festival and Eugene O'Neil Playwrights Conference. Her work has been commissioned by Steppenwolf Theater, Women's Project, South Coast Rep, People's Light and Theatre, and Oregon Shakespeare Festival/Penumbra Theatre. She most recently served as Co-Producer on the Showtime series "Shameless". Awards include: Spirit of Detroit Award, PoNY Fellowship, Sky-Cooper Prize, TEER Trailblazer Award, Steinberg Playwright Award, Audelco Awards, NBFT August Wilson Playwriting Award, Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama, OBIE Award, Ford Foundation Art of Change Fellowship, and being named one of Variety's Women of Impact for 2017-18.

TODO RIVER, PURA PASION, UN SENTIMIENTO MILLONARIO. POR FAVOR: AYUDE AL BLOG HACIENDO CLICK EN UNA PUBLICIDAD. Definen el plantel para la temporada 2009/10

Los dirigentes ven a Ahumada, Ferrari, Buonanotte y Falcao con un pie afuera. Cabral se iría al Villarreal y Abelairas está en duda. En cambio, se quedarían Vega, Augusto, Mauro Díaz y Villagra, que pasará a jugar como lateral derecho, su posición natural. Además, permanecerán los cuestionados Barrado y Archubi, por quien esperan una oferta. ¿Quiénes vendrían? Gorosito quiere un delantero para suplir a Radamel y a su volante fetiche en Argentinos… ¡Juan Mercier!

Entre los dirigentes y el cuerpo técnico empezaron a circular las listas que definirán el plantel para el próximo semestre, la etapa inicial de la temporada 2009/10, que abarca el torno Apertura y la Copa Sudamericana. En un listado, figuran los jugadores que se irán; en otro, los que se quedarán; y en un tercero, los que River irá a buscar para incorporar. Aunque esta última lista está llena de nombres que resultan una tentación para el hincha y un imposible para el club de Núñez. Entre ellos aparecen Javier Saviola y Julio Cruz como principales candidatos a reforzar una delantera que quedará diezmada con la posible partida de Radamel Falcao. Aunque también figuran algunas pretensiones del técnico Néstor Gorosito.

Guille Pereyra es una de ellas, aunque el jugador no planee regresar al país, y como a principio de este año, Pipo volvió a advertir que quiere a Juan Mercier en River, pero el volante derecho de Argentinos Juniors no contó, no cuenta ni contará con el aval de los dirigentes para desembarcar en el Monumental. Su elevada edad y su nivel futbolístico medio posicionan a Mercier como un jugador de escaso valor de reventa, por lo que desde el oficialismo no están dispuestos a darle el gusto al técnico. Vaya sorpresa, teniendo en cuenta que esta misma dirigencia supo contratar a Loeschbor, Diogo y Archubi, sólo por nombrar algunos casos. Pero evidentemente, el pobre de Mercier no vendría con un negociado detrás capaz de conmover a quienes dirigen la institución.

En cuanto a los jugadores que se irán, desde la Comisión Directiva intentarán desprenderse de aquellos jugadores que puedan engordar las arcas del club y/o abaratar los costos de un plantel que cobra demasiado dinero para lo poco y nada que juega. Entonces, quienes dejarían La Banda serían Falcao y Buonanotte (los dos de mayor valor de reventa), y Ahumada y Ferrari. Al capitán lo condiciona su elevadísima prima, mientras que en el caso del lateral derecho, si bien es uno de los mejores pagos, su alejamiento estará ligado a que River cedió sus derechos económicos en agosto del año pasado. Por lo que se convirtió en un jugador caro que ya no dejará rédito alguno en la tesorería de Núñez.

A estos cuatro titulares los seguirían Gustavo Cabral, que partiría rumbo al Villarreal español, equipo con el que River comparte su pase en porcentajes iguales, Barbosa y Ojeda, los dos arqueros sin lugar en el equipo. Pero eso no es todo, porque en el Monumental están atentos al interés de Simeone en Abelairas, por lo que tampoco descartan la ida del volante por izquierda. Pero ojo, porque no todas son alegrías para el hincha: por Archubi no hubo ningún tipo de oferta, por lo que continuará en el club, y a Barrado, ahora que levantó su nivel, no lo quieren dejar ir. Entonces, junto a ellos se quedarán Villagra (que jugará de 4 una vez que se vaya Ferrari para que el pibe Orban tenga lugar), Vega, Gerlo, Nico Sánchez, Augusto y Mauro Díaz.

Que se vaya un cinco para poner el peso

Gorosito ya manifestó su interés por Juan Mercier, jugador polifuncional de Argentinos Juniors. Y pese a que desde un principio la Comisión Directiva no estuvo de acuerdo con el refuerzo solicitado por Pipo, finalmente le dijeron que si River se desprende de Ahumada o Ponzio, llegará el Pichi.

A pesar de que ya hay diversos apellidos circulando el Mundo River, como cada vez que se termina un campeonato y se abre el mercado de pases, el club de Núñez no inició negociaciones formales por ninguno de los jugadores solicitados por Néstor Gorosito, quien se encuentra ultimando detalles para firmar su contrato la semana que viene, después de cerrar su desvinculación de Argentinos Juniors.

Sin embargo, en este momento el jugador que mayores posibilidades tiene de llegar a River es Juan Mercier, volante polifuncional de Argentinos, uno de los preferidos de Gorosito. El técnico lo pidió en una de sus primeras conversaciones con Aguilar y, más allá de que en primera instancia encontró un cierto rechazo por lo poco conocido que es el Pichi, la llegada del mediocampista es factible.

Teniendo en cuenta que River recibió efectivo por la venta de los derechos federativos de Darío Conca al Fluminense, lo económico no sería un impedimento para que se concrete la llegada de Mercier, pero los principales dirigentes le pusieron una condición a Gorosito: si Pipo desea que el volante vista la camiseta de River, tendrán que irse Oscar Ahumada o Leonardo Ponzio, quienes perciben un contrato elevado.

La salida de Ahumada no parece ser nada sencilla, debido a que los dirigentes pretenden una buena suma de dinero por el pase del zarateño, con quien tienen algunas diferencias porque lo consideran uno de los principales responsables de la mala campaña. El caso de Ponzio es diferente: también cobra un sueldo suculento, aunque es mucho fácil de vender que Ahumada. Lo cierto es que le llegada de Mercier depende de que se vaya un 5, sino River no pondrá un peso por el Pichi.

El AEK de Grecia quiere a Ferrari

El club griego mostró interés en el lateral de River, que vendió los derechos económicos del jugador en agosto de 2008. Por lo que la transferencia no le dejaría rédito alguno al club de Núñez. ¿Habrá amnistía para Gerlo si se va Paulo y no llegan refuerzos?

El interés del AEK FC en Paulo Ferrari no fue una noticia menor en el Mundo River, porque la ida del lateral derecho abriría todo un abanico de posibilidades, aunque ninguna económica, que es lo que más les interesa a los dirigentes millonarios. Es que en el club de Núñez vendieron dos derechos económicos del jugador a mediados del año pasado, cuando la oferta de un grupo inversor holandés resultó irresistible para la intención del oficialismo de cerrar el balance con superávit fiscal.

Pero la posible partida del ex Rosario Central, que en Europa podría tener de compañeros a Sebastián Saja e Ignacio Scocco, sí siembra diferentes incógnitas: la primera, es con quién y de qué manera reforzarán los directivos el hueco que dejará Ferrari en el equipo de Gorosito. El uruguayo Pinto sonó en su momento como un refuerzo casi seguro, pero lo cierto es que la seguridad en el Mundo River es cuanto menos utópica. Mientras que la segunda incógnita es qué hará Pipo si los dirigentes finalmente no incorporan a ninguno de los defensores que pidió.

Ante ese panorama, una de las posibilidades es que Villagra pase al lateral derecho y que Lucas Orban se posicione en el flanco izquierdo de la defensa millonaria. Pero con ello, Gorosito también deberá rever -al menos en la intimidad del cuerpo técnico- su decisión de excluir Danilo Gerlo del plantel. ¿Hasta qué punto será capaz Pipo de mantener al zaguero central que terminó el semestre pasado como titular entrenando con la Reserva?

Más aún si se tiene en cuenta que también le bajó el pulgar a Gustavo Cabral, que Facundo Quiroga recién se está recuperando de una lesión que lo marginó de la actividad durante los últimos seis meses, y que el ya no tan juvenil Mateo Mussachio no lo termina de convencer. Será cuestión de esperar, primero deberá confirmarse la partida de Ferrari al fútbol griego, pero mientras tanto, Gerlo ya avisó que se quedará en el club, ese club del que muchas veces estuvo cerca de irse y en el que -como él mismo repite- siempre terminó jugando.

Gorosito ya armó su lista navideña

A pesar de que aún no firmó su contrato con River y continúa al frente de Argentinos Juniors, Pipo ya comenzó a hablar sobre los refuerzos con José María Aguilar. ¿Quiénes son los jugadores que puso en la lista Gorosito? Pablo Guiñazú, del Internacional de Porto Alegre, y Juan Ignacio Mercier, de Argentinos.

Ya se acerca Nochebuena, ya se acerca Navidad y Gorosito preparó su carta, aunque el pedido no será a Santa Claus, sino a José María Aguilar, con quien volvió a reunirse y ya le hizo saber que quiere dos volantes. Se trata de Pablo Guiñazú, de Internacional de Porto Alegre (Brasil), y de Juan Ignacio Mercier, de Argentinos Juniors. El primero es volante por izquierda, mientras que el segundo viene actuando como volante central, aunque también sabe desempeñarse por el costado derecho.

Más allá de que aún no se iniciaron conversaciones ninguno de los dos jugadores mencionados, el asunto no será nada sencillo, debido a que Guiñazú fue una pieza clave para que el Inter se consagrara campeón de la Copa Sudamericana, tiene una cotización elevada y cobra mucho dinero, mientras que lo de Mercier parece ser mucho más accesible desde lo económico, pero el problema es que Argentinos no estaría de acuerdo con que River le quite a Gorosito y a uno de sus titulares indiscutidos.

¿Qué tiene que saber el hincha de River sobre los posibles refuerzos? Pablo Guiñazú jugó toda su carrera como volante por izquierda, con un ida y vuelta envidiable, un aporte respetable de goles y capacidad tanto para la marca como para el juego. Surgió de las Inferiores de Newell's, se consagró campeón con Independiente en el Apertura 2002, pasó por Perugia (Italia), Saturn (Rusia), Libertad (Paraguay) y recaló en el Inter, donde es titular indiscutido, al igual que en casi todos sus equipos.

En cuanto a Juan Mercier hay que decir que es un jugador muy completo, garantiza despliegue, precisión y buena pegada con ambos perfiles. Llegó hace un año a Argentinos, donde actúa como volante central junto a Ortigoza. De todas formas, Mercier puede jugar por derecha, tanto de lateral como de mediocampista, sin que su rendimiento se vea alterado. Surgió de Villa Dálmine y pasó por Flandria, Morón, Tristán Suárez y Platense hasta llegar a La Paternal. Ahora, con apenas un año y medio de experiencia en Primera División, puede llegar a dar el gran salto de su carrera, aunque todo dependerá de las negociaciones entre Aguilar y Luis Segura, presidente de Argentinos.

Ferrari: “Sólo pienso en River”

Pese a que en Núñez lo indican como uno de los principales jugadores que no seguirán en el club, el lateral derecho se abstuvo de todo tipo de rumores. “Lo único que sé es que el 18 tengo que volver a entrenarme con River”, sostuvo Paulo.

Los dirigentes millonarios vendieron en octubre del año pasado los derechos económicos de Paulo Ferrari a un grupo empresario holandés. Se desprendieron del 80 por ciento que River poseía de su pase (el 20 restante es de Rosario Central) en tres millones de dólares y, desde ese momento, la continuidad del Loncho en La Banda pasó a carecer de futuro cierto.

Entonces, así como en el verano pasado se creyó con seguridad que el defensor emigraría al fútbol extranjero, hoy Ferrari también integra la lista de jugadores que emigrarán del plantel millonario. Principalmente porque en River tratan de abaratar costos, y la ficha del lateral, que en estos tres años en el club supo convertirse en un referente del grupo, es una de las más elevadas. Por lo que Paulo resulta caro y ya no va a dejar nuevos réditos económicos.

Sin embargo, ni los dirigentes ni el jugador saben con certeza cuáles son las probabilidades de que se vaya. Incluso, no hay siquiera rumores que lo liguen a otra camiseta. “Nadie me ha dicho nada. No sé si hay otro club, así que en lo único que pienso es en volver a entrenarme el 18 con River”, declaró el lateral, tras la derrota de anoche por 2-1 frente a un Estudiantes muleto.

En referencia al partido, Ferrari explicó: “Duele mucho perder y más así, pero sobre todo lo que duele es el mal semestre que hicimos”. Y a modo de balance, se refirió a los hinchas millonarios, que volvieron a encabezar los rankings de entradas vendidas acompañando al equipo. “La gente nos apoyó en todo momento y nosotros no pudimos devolverle lo que ellos nos dieron”, reconoció Paulo, antes de encarar dos semanas de vacaciones en las que -indefectiblemente- quedará resuelto su futuro.

No le dieron ni un solo gusto

Gorosito no recibió ninguno de los refuerzos que pidió: Mercier, Santana, Ortega y un lateral. A cambio, los dirigentes le trajeron a Fabbiani y le impusieron a Gallardo y Barbosa. Nico Domingo ocupará el cuarto cupo por decantación.

Pese a que Aguilar jure que el perfil de Néstor Gorosito lo sedujo por sus condiciones técnicas, el mercado de pases denota el principal motivo de por qué Pipo le ganó la pulseada a Américo Gallego en la sucesión de Diego Simeone. River no contrató ninguno de los refuerzos que pidió Pipo para el Torneo Clausura y la Copa Libertadores, una medida que resulta insólita para un técnico que llega con la misión de sacar al equipo de la racha más negra en la historia del club y que no hubieran podido sostener ante las exigencias de un entrenador con experiencia y multicampeón.

Juan Mercier fue el jugador que encabezó la lista de refuerzos que entregó Gorosito y, desde fines de diciembre hasta incluso hoy, los dirigentes amagaron a contratarlo. Pero lo cierto es que jamás estuvieron plenamente dispuestos a traerlo: la elevada cotización del volante de 29 años fue la traba que esgrimieron en las oficinas del Monumental, a pesar de que se habían comprometido a hacer el esfuerzo si concretaban la venta de Leo Ponzio a Zaragoza.

Sin embargo, Ponzio está en España y Mercier sigue en Argentinos. Aunque la negociación que realmente estuvo repleta de contradicciones fue la del siempre posible y al mismo tiempo imposible regreso anticipado de Ortega. Tras una disputa económica devenida en política, el último gran ídolo continuará al menos un semestre más lejos de River. Tal cual ocurrió con Jonathan Santana, la alternativa a Mercier que finalmente recaló en San Lorenzo, y con el lateral izquierdo que tanto pidió Pipo y que ni siquiera llegó a tener nombre propio.

A cambio, los dirigentes acercaron a Fabbiani, una contratación que si bien contó con el visto bueno de Gorosito, estuvo meramente ligada a un interés dirigencial por sumar a un jugador que pedían los hinchas. Con esa misma capacidad de atribuirse la elección de los refuerzos, los dirigentes también incorporaron a Gallardo, el referente sin costo que les convenía para el vestuario, y a Barbosa. Entonces, atrás y bien lejos, quedaron los deseos del técnico, al que -parece- ya demasiado conformaron dándole la oportunidad de dirigir a River.

Después de terminar el 2007, el "Pitu" rechazó ofertas y no iba a ir de pretemporada: fue, rindió y se entusiasma con el rol que le da su entrenador. Matías Abelairas fue el autor del primer gol en la era Simeone. No es un dato menor, pero se caracteriza por ser uno de los jugadores mas "Jovenes". Su buen estreno le aportó un torrente de energía, le renovó el autoestima, le permitió volver a sentirse importante en el equipo. Fue el que más minutos terminó acumulando en el verano. En la actualidad es una pieza importante para mantener el orden del mediocampo, jugando como centrocampista. Sus tiros libres siempre son considerados como "medios goles" o "goles hechos" debido a su precisión a la hora del remate.

Actualmente, Rodrigo se encuentra en el plantel de River y es a veces uno de los jugadores titulares del equipo de Nuñez. No muestra su máximo nivel, se espera mucho mas del "flaco", que posee una pegada envidiable. Diego Barrado Biografía Diego Armando Barrado (27 de febrero de 1981, Bragado, Argentina) es un futbolista argentino. Hizo las inferiores en River Plate, club donde debutó en 2000. En 2004 pasó a Racing Club de Avellaneda donde se destacó en varios partidos. Esto hizo que en 2005 regresara a River Plate, pero allí no mostró su mejor nivel y además jugó muy poco. En 2006 llega a Colón de Santa Fe de la mano de Leonardo Astrada, quien ya lo había dirigido en River. Sin embargo su nivel volvió a decaer. En el 2007 desembarca en Olimpo quien debía enfrentar una temporada muy complicada por el riesgo de perder la categoría. Allí, en un equipo menor, realiza una temporada aceptable. Vencido se contrato con la institución bahiense, retorna a River Plate, donde no sabe aprovechar sus chances, mostrando, nuevamente, un nivel paupérrimo cada vez que le tocó entrar a la cancha, siendo finalmente parte de la peor campaña riverplantense de la historia. Diego Buonanotte Biografía Diego Mario Buonanotte Rende (Teodelina, Santa Fe; 19 de abril de 1988), es un futbolista argentino. Juega como mediocampista o delantero y su actual equipo es River Plate, de la Primera División de Argentina. En 2007, el entonces director técnico del club, Daniel Passarella, comenzó a hacerlo jugar más tiempo de titular en los partidos del torneo argentino. Incluso disputó el Superclásico contra Boca Juniors, en el que cumplió una destacada actuación. Marcó su primer gol contra Rosario Central en el minuto 29 del segundo tiempo, el 30 de septiembre de 2007, en el Estadio Monumental. Esa temporada disputaría un total de 25 partidos a nivel nacional, marcando once goles y consagrándose campeón del Torneo Clausura 2008. Anotó los dos goles que le dieron la victoria a su equipo frente a Olimpo en la última fecha, asegurando el título. Diego en cuero festejando el gol a huracan En el ámbito internacional disputó la Copa Sudamericana 2007 (dos partidos, sin goles) y la Copa Libertadores 2008 (seis partidos, dos goles), quedando su equipo eliminado en semifinales y octavos de final respectivamente.En 2008 consiguió el Torneo Clausura convirtiendo los dos goles de River Plate, que derrotó a Olimpo de Bahía Blanca por 2 a 1, transformándose en el héroe millonario que hizo vibrar a los miles de simpatizantes que colmaron el estadio Monumental. Además, consiguió otros 7 tantos que fueron fundamentales para la consagración de su equipo. Las condiciones técnicas y la enorme calidad de Diego Buonanotte podría afirmarse que tienen antecedentes genéticos, porque su padre, Mario, fue un excelente jugador de fútbol en la década del setenta. Mario, nacido en la ciudad de Arenales, partido del mismo nombre, jugó en clubes locales y tuvo un recordado paso por el club Independiente de Junín, donde integró equipos que se caracterizaron por su excelente juego y depurada técnica. Por aquellos años, Mario, padre de Diego, jugó con futbolistas de la talla de Jorge "Lalo" Sottile, con quien formó una dupla atacante muy peligrosa, "Cotorra" Navarro, Luis "Gota" Frezzotti, Reyes Escobar, Ricardo Peralta, Mario Palma, Oscar González y Coppolino, entre otros. Su gran deseo es ser reconocido por los hinchas de River como su ídolo Ariel Ortega, asegurando que le gustaría jugar muchos años en el club y que a futuro le gustaría jugar en la Liga Española El número de la camiseta de Diego Mario Buonanotte fue la 30 en 2006, con el plantel de primera división. En el año 2008 le cambiaron su número por la 15, aunque siguió usando la 30 en el torneo nacional. Usó la 15 en los partidos por la copa Libertadores. En una charla, aseguró que: "Si me dieran la posibilidad de cambiar la camiseta numero 10 con Ortega, no la aceptaría, a mí me gusta usar la 30 aunque use la 15". En la selección Diego utilizó la camiseta 18 durante el Sudamericano y la 17 en los Juegos Olímpicos, con la que convirtió su primer gol albiceleste. Diego disputo en Venezuela el Campeonato Sudamericano Sub-17 con vistas a la clasificación para el mundial juvenil de Perú cuando tenia sólo 16 años. Jugando de suplente sufrió junto con sus compañeros la lamentable eliminación, ya que la selección no tubo una buena actuación y tuvo que volverse despues de la primera ronda, despúes de ser eliminados por Perú. Ha sido convocado para la selección sub-23 que jugó en Pekín 2008, consiguiendo estar por delante de grandes jugadores como Gonzalo Higuaín y Mauro Zárate. Convirtió su primer gol con la selección Argentina en el triunfo 2-0 contra Serbia, anotando de tiro libre. A pesar de su poca participación en el torneo formó parte del seleccionado ganador de la medalla dorada olímpica en Pekín 2008. Actualmente es pretendido por varios clubes de Europa; entre las ofertas mas fuertes figuran el Benfica, la Lazio y el Inter, pero él quiere jugar y ser figura en River antes de irse a jugar al exterior. Nicolás Domingo Biografía Nicolás Mario Domingo (Totoras, Santa Fe, Argentina, 8 de abril de 1985) es un futbolista argentino. Juega de centrocampista y su equipo actual es el Club Atlético River Plate de la Primera División de Argentina. Su debut en Primera División de Argentina lo hizo el 29 de mayo de 2005 enfrentándose al Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata, partido que finalizó 1-2 favorable a Gimnasia y Esgrima. Su primer tanto lo anotó contra Club Atlético Gimnasia y Esgrima de San Salvador de Jujuy. Augusto Fernández Biografía Augusto Matías Fernández (10 de abril de 1986 Pergamino, Argentina) es un futbolista argentino que juega como centrocampista; y su actual equipo es River Plate, desde 2005 de la Primera División de Argentina. Debutó en el River Plate el 29 de enero de 2006 con una victoria ante Tiro Federal por 5 a 0. Con los partidos se tranformó en un jugador muy importante para el equipo teniendo varias ofertas, la más importante del Atlético de Madrid. Debido a problemas con la obtención legal de su pasaporte comunitario que le permitiría no ocupar lugar de extranjero en equipos europeos, debió quedarse en River Plate a pesar de sus ganas de dejar el club. Su desempeño ha disminuido mucho en los últimos meses, y sumado esto a sus salidas nocturnas en fiestas y locales bailables, declaraciones constantes acerca de dejar el club ante la primer oferta, y desgano futbolístico, la relación con la afición Riverplatense dejó de ser afectuosa. Tanto es así que ante los insultos y recriminaciones de la gente en un partido de local frente a Newell's Old Boys, Fernández tomó sus genitales haciendo un gesto en forma de desprecio frente a los mismos. Robert Flores Biografía Robert Mario Flores Bistolfi, conocido como Robert Flores (Montevideo, Uruguay, 13 de mayo de 1986), es un futbolista uruguayo. Juega de mediapunta y su equipo actual es el Club Atlético River Plate de la Primera División de Argentina. Su primer club fue el Club Atlético River Plate de la Primera División de Uruguay. Tras destacar en el Campeonato Uruguayo de Fútbol 2007/2008, concretamente en el Torneo Clausura 2008, en el que su equipo llegó a la final contra el Peñarol, Flores llamó a atención del Villarreal CF de España.

Trayectoria

El 28 de Julio de 1935, con sólo 16 años y ante Ferro Carril Oeste, Adolfo Pedernera debutó en River Plate como puntero izquierdo formando pareja con Carlos Peucelle. En el centro de la línea estaba el gran Bernabé Ferreyra: "Me marcó “Pechito” Della Torre, a quien yo había admirado cuando era back derecho de Racing -rememoraría años después. Recibí una pelota, amagué el centro de zurda y Pechito saltó. La enganché hacia atrás y amagué el centro con la derecha. Della Torre volvió a saltar y yo enganché nuevamente para centrar con la zurda. La hinchada de River deliraba. Terminé la jugada, me iba para el centro de la cancha y siento que alguien me llama. Era Della Torre. Y ahí, sin violencia pero con firmeza, me dio la primera gran lección que recibí en una cancha de fútbol: 'Es bueno que tenga habilidad y la demuestre, pero burlarse de los contrarios le va a traer más problemas que ventajas', me dijo. Y tenía razón. Me enseñó lo más importante que uno debe tener en una cancha: respeto". (ADOLFO PEDERNERA 1918-1995, célebre jugador y entrenador del fútbol argentino)

Sus primeros clubes fueron Cruceros del Plata y Huracán. En 1933 pasó a River Plate, club con el que debutó en la Primera División de su país en 1935 y en cuyo plantel permaneció hasta 1946, convirtiéndose en una auténtica leyenda.

En el equipo argentino fue integrante de una de las delanteras más célebres de la historia del fútbol: La Máquina, que completaban Juan Carlos Muñoz, José Manuel Moreno, Ángel Labruna y Félix Loustau.

Pedernera condujo el juego de aquella Máquina y recibió los apodos de El Maestro y El Frentudo. Jugador de gran regate, pícaro y elegante al tiempo, actuó en los cinco puestos de la delantera y contribuyó a la conquista de cinco títulos de la Liga argentina (1936, 1937, 1941, 1942 y 1945). En esos tiempos eran inolvidables sus paseos nocturnos por los lugares donde se escuchaba buen tango y su amistad con Aníbal Troilo fue fraternal y duradera, unidos por las pasiones mayores del pueblo argentino, futbol y tango.

Tras abandonar River Plate (donde también fue compañero de Néstor Raúl RossiAlfredo Di Stéfano), inició un periplo que le llevó, seducido por una millonaria oferta a Atlanta (1947), Huracán (1948) y Millonarios de Bogota. y

Con este último conjunto jugó desde 1949 hasta 1954 y además fue director técnico desde 1950, ganando en cuatro ocasiones la Liga de Colombia (1949, 1951, 1952 y 1953), además la Pequeña Copa del Mundo de Clubes en este último año. El equipo fue apodado apodado "El Ballet Azul" y Pedernera al igual que en River Plate fue reconocido como uno de los mejores jugadores en la historia del club colombiano. Puso fin a su trayectoria como futbolista en Huracán en 1954 y 1955.

Fue internacional en 20 ocasiones con la selección argentina, ganando la Copa America en 1941 y 1945 y, tras retirarse, inició una larga carrera como entrenador que le llevó, entre otros, a los banquillos del Nacional de Montevideo, Gimnasia y Esgrima de La Plata, Huracán, Independiente, Boca Juniors (con el que fue subcampeon de la Copa Libertadores en 1963), América de Cali dandole a este equipo participación histórica en la Liga Colombiana al obtener el Subcampeonato en 1960 y al año siguiente la goleada más amplia en el Clásico Vallecaucano ante el deportivo Cali y River Plate.

También fue entrenador de las selecciones de Colombia y Argentina. Gracias al buen trabajo de Adolfo Pedernera, Colombia pudo clasificarse por primera vez a un Mundial de Fútbol, esta vez al Mundial de 1962 en Chile eliminando al favorito Perú en las eliminatorias de 1961 con un triunfo obtenido en Bogotá y un empate en Lima. En 1969 fue llamado para ser el técnico de la Argentina con el fin de conseguir la clasificación para el Mundial de 1970 en México, pero fracasó al caer eliminado por Perú en la cancha de Boca Juniors en las eliminatorias válidas para ese Mundial.

El futbolista Adolfo Pedernera nació en 1918. Se formó en las divisiones inferiores de River Plate y debutó en primera división en 1935, el mismo año que José Manuel Moreno. En 1937 obtuvo su primer campeonato; por entonces formaba ala con Carlos Peucelle. El propio Peucelle convenció en 1941 al director técnico Renato Cesarini de que colocara a Pedernera como centrodelantero; en esa posición obtuvo con River el campeonato de 1941. Por entonces se constituyó “La Máquina”, el equipo a menudo considerado el mejor del fútbol profesional argentino. Brilló sobre todo su delantera –así se la denominaba entonces– integrada por Muñoz, José Manuel Moreno, Adolfo Pedernera, Angel Labruna y Félix Loustau. En 1942 River fue campeón y demostró una amplia superioridad; si bien cayó ante Racing por 6 a 1, en ese partido estuvo ausente Pedernera, considerado ya la pieza esencial del equipo. En ese año marcó 23 goles, dos menos que el goleador del torneo. Desde entonces, optó por jugar retrasado, lejos del área, como organizador y lanzador. Pedernera fue campeón con River otra vez en 1945, cuando debutaron otros dos jugadores emblemáticos: Amadeo Carrizo y Néstor Rossi. En 1946 hubo problemas en la institución: frente a magros resultados, varios jugadores fueron acusados de indisciplina, y también de apatía. El entrenador Peucelle renunció, y a principios del año siguiente Pedernera aceptó ser transferido a Atlanta, un club pequeño que gastó una suma enorme –550.000 pesos– para comprar jugadores de renombre. De ellos, 140.000 se destinaron a la transferencia de Pedernera, la mayor cifra pagada hasta entonces en el fútbol argentino. El reportaje que entonces le hizo el diario Clarín se tituló “Voy a un club chico a jugar de corazón”. La aventura terminó desastrosamente: Atlanta quedó último y descendió a Primera B. En 1948 Pedernera fue transferido a Huracán en 80.000 pesos. Ese año se produjo una dura huelga de jugadores profesionales, y al año siguiente muchos emigraron al exterior. Pedernera, como otros muchos, fue a Colombia, donde jugó hasta 1954. Ese año retornó a Huracán, jugó tres partidos y abandonó la práctica. En 1979 comenzó a trabajar con las divisiones inferiores de River. Clarín fue fundado en agosto de 1945 por Roberto J. Noble. Sus primeros periodistas fueron Norberto Ezeiza, Lizardo Zía, Isidoro de la Calle, León Mirlás, José Portogalo y Horacio Estol.
