          Steve Barber (#477)      Cache   Translate Page      
Orioles' starting pitcher Steve Barber is shown about to enter his last full season with Baltimore. Barber played 8 of his 14 seasons with the Orioles, from his MLB debut in 1960 to his July 1967 trade to the Yankees. While with the O's, he was one of the few players to wear #13.

Barber and Milt Pappas held down the team's pitching staff for the first half of the 1960s, before the more well-known Dave McNally and Jim Palmer established themselves.


Steve played in the minors from 1957-1959, then made his Orioles' debut in April 1960. He was in the starting rotation for 7 1/2 seasons, winning 18 games in 1961 and 20 in 1963.

He was an All-Star in '63 and '66 (despite only winning 10 games in 1966). A bout with tendonitis not only kept him out of the '66 All-Star game, but also the ’66 World Series (not that he was needed – the other 3 starters pitched the 4-game series, including 3 complete game shutouts).

After compiling a 4-9 record in 15 games at the start of 1967, he was traded to the Yankees for backup 1st baseman Ray Barker. This trade is surprising, given the starting pitching woes the team experienced in 1967 (Palmer out all season, Wally Bunker ineffective, McNally also struggling).

Barber dealt with arm injuries for the rest of his career, bouncing around to 6 different teams in his final 7 seasons. After 1 1/2 years as a Yankees starter (replacing the retired Whitey Ford), he spent the 1969 season in the Seattle Pilots' rotation.

He was released after the 1969 season, and spent his final 5 seasons as a relief pitcher for the Cubs, Braves, Angels, and Giants. All but one of those moves were a result of him being released and signed by another team.

Barber passed away in 2007 at age 68.

           Comment on State’s proposed take over of Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport misguided by William James Brotherton       Cache   Translate Page      
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.

          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.

          Babies may get better hospital care when parents say thanks      Cache   Translate Page      

(Reuters Health) - Critically ill infants may receive better care in the hospital when their parents take the time to thank doctors and nurses than when families don't express any gratitude, a small study suggests. 

"Small expressions of gratitude originating from the patients or their families (but not from a medical authority) facilitate patient care and enhance patient safety," said lead study author Dr. Arieh Riskin, director of the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Bnai Zion Medical Center in Haifa, Israel. 

"While this is something that many long assumed to be true, the effects were never systematically demonstrated," Riskin said by email. "More importantly, the magnitude of the effect is substantially larger than we ever expected, explaining far more of the variance in team performance outcomes than many other patient safety interventions typically implemented." 

For the study, researchers asked 43 NICU teams to participate in training workshops with simulations of common acute care problems that can develop in vulnerable babies. Each team had two doctors and two nurses. 

Teams were randomly assigned to one of four forms of interaction with parents and colleagues: mothers expressing gratitude; thanks from physicians; expressions of gratitude from both mothers and doctors; or a control group that got only neutral feedback. 

Maternal gratitude had the biggest impact on medical team performance, mainly because this was associated with improved communications and information sharing within medical teams, researchers report in Pediatrics. 

Forty percent of the variance in team information sharing was explained by maternal gratitude, the study found. 

Improved information sharing resulted in medical teams providing better care - this explained 33 percent of the variance in diagnostic performance and 41 percent of the variance in treatment performance. 

One limitation of the study is that it was only a simulation, and it's possible doctors and nurses might react differently to feedback in the real world. 

The study also wasn't designed to assess the impact of rudeness or negative social interactions, which have been tied to worse clinical outcomes in some previous research. 

Even so, the results suggest that a little praise can go a long way in helping doctors and nurses feel like their work has meaning, said Cynda Rushton, a researcher at the Berman Institute of Bioethics and School of Nursing at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. 

"When clinicians hear that their efforts have produced benefit to their patients or families and that it has made a difference in the lives of others, it can reinforce that their efforts matter and are appreciated," Rushton, who wasn't involved in the study, said by email. 

"With burnout being reported at alarming levels, helping clinicians to reconnect to the meaning of their work is vital for sustaining the healthcare workforce," Rushton added. 

It's also possible that expressions of gratitude might ignite regions of the brain associated with positive emotions and shift awareness in ways that facilitate better collaboration and relationships among members of medical teams, Rushton said. 

"When teams are functioning well, patients are likely to experience better communication and collaboration with them," Rushton said.

          Jets throttle defense with CJ Mosley, lose out on Anthony Barr      Cache   Translate Page      

Forget about the offense, the New York Jets are suddenly building quite the imposing defense as free agency is set to kick off on Wednesday. Even though it has come with its fair share of drama.

While they kicked off the NFL's negotiating period — which began on Monday — with a trade for offensive guard Kelechi Osemele and the signing of slot receiver Jamison Crowder, the Jets looked poised to pull off two huge moves in succession for linebackers.

Monday night appeared to have brought about the acquisition of Minnesota Vikings OLB Anthony Barr, who was coming off an inconsistent 2018 in which he recorded 55 combined tackles and three sacks in 13 games. Yet on Tuesday afternoon, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reported that Barr decided to remain with the Vikings.

The 26-year-old was projected to add an outside rushing presence in new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams' 3-4 scheme, which would have been a new look for him considering the Vikings deploy a 4-3 defense that keeps Barr more toward the interior.

With 13.5 sacks over his first five seasons, it was not a given that Barr would have helped out a Jets unit that struggled to get to the quarterback last season. However, this was an athletic talent that could have adapted quickly enough in New York.

His decision to remain in Minnesota add some more money back to the Jets' cap space. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Barr's initial Jets deal was around the $14 million to $15 million range per season.

It would have been a cheaper deal than the one that actually went down Tuesday morning when the Jets agreed to a five-year, $85 million deal ($17 million AAV) with former Baltimore Ravens inside linebacker CJ Mosley, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Also at 26 years old, Mosley has excelled the moment he made it to Baltimore after being drafted out of Alabama with the 17th pick of the 2014 draft. He's made the Pro Bowl four times in his first five seasons where he put up a 16-game average of 124 combined tackles.

While Barr would have been looked upon as a pass-rushing option, Mosley is being brought on to help lead the middle of the Jets defense with an ability to provide above-average play against both the run and pass. It's an aspect they've missed since parting ways with David Harris in 2017. Mosley has nine career interceptions and 35 pass breakups to go with a run stop percentage of 10.9, ranked fifth among NFL linebackers by Pro Football Focus.

The first three moves made by general manager Mike Maccagnan has taken a sizable chunk out of the Jets' cap space this season. Once having almost $100 million in space, New York is now down to approximately $58 million, though it would have been near $43 million if the Barr deal was completed. It's still more than enough to make a few more big moves, which could happen in the coming days as the Jets have been linked with free-agent star running back Le'Veon Bell and former Denver Broncos center Matt Paradis, who was ranked the No. 2 center in the entire league by PFF.

Regardless, the Jets suddenly have a young, explosive defensive core with the addition of Mosley, who will join safety Jamal Adams (23 years old), defensive end Leonard Williams (24), and inside linebacker Avery Williamson (27). That group alone should do plenty to improve the Jets' standing from last year when they ranked 24th against the pass, 26th against the run, and 29th in points allowed.

Add in the potential No. 3 pick of the 2019 NFL Draft that could yield Kentucky edge rusher Josh Allen or Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams and the Jets might be putting together one of the best defenses in franchise history right before our very eyes.

          Sgt. Noah Koontz, Co. D      Cache   Translate Page      
Noah Koontz was born October 30, 1842 in Shade Twp, Somerset County, PA. He was one of thirteen children born to Henry and Mary (Sell) Koontz. Noah grew up on his family farm in Shade Twp, and joined Co. D 142nd PA Infantry as a Private on August 22, 1862.



Koontz was promoted to Corporal on March 12, 1863, and was wounded in the hip at the Battle of Gettysburg on July 1, 1863. He recovered and returned to his company, and was again wounded at the Battle of Spottsylvania in September of 1864. A few weeks later, on Nov. 1, 1864, Noah was promoted to Sergeant. He was mustered out with his regiment at the end of the War on May 29, 1865 after the Grand Review in Washington, DC.
After he was he left army life, Noah moved back home, was married in October of 1865, and began working as a farmer. In 1886, Noah and his wife Margaret moved to Johnstown, Cambria County, PA. The Johnstown Flood of 1889 forced them to move to the Moxham neighborhood of Johnstown, which is relatively flood-free. According to his obituary in the Johnstown Tribune from January 25, 1916, Koontz had worked as a teamster and had also helped build the Somerset and Cambria branch of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.

When Noah passed away in 1916, he left behind a wife and seven children. He is buried in Grandview Cemetery, Johnstown, PA.


Recently, some letters have been found in Schmucker Hall on the Lutheran Theological Seminary campus in Gettysburg, PA. These letters were written to George Dull, one of Noah Koontz's Company D comrades. No letters to Koontz were found, but an envelope with his name on it was found in the same area.

          Robert Gibson - world premiere of Night Eats Color, with Inscape Ensemble, April 7      Cache   Translate Page      

Date: 

Apr 7 2019 - 3:00pm

Inscape will present the world premiere of Robert Gibson's new work Night Eats Color for 10 players. The performance will take place at Linehan Hall on campus at the University of Maryland Baltimore County on April 7th as part of their regular season.

Composer's note:  Night eats color was inspired by Chika Sagawa’s poem entitled “Backside” - as translated by Sawako Nakayasu.

The surreal imagery of Sagawa’s poem evoked for me rhythmic and harmonic patterns based in the language of jazz and rock, filtered through the lens of a chamber ensemble. My musical image of this poignant text is created from motion, transparency and color that evolve through patterns and sound colors created by the ensemble at large and in smaller groupings. These groups sometimes progress like people walking in a crowd—all moving forward, but not always at the same tempo.
Night eats color was written for and is dedicated to Richard Scerbo and Inscape Chamber Orchestra.

          Jos. A. Bank unveils newly redesigned Madison Avenue flagship      Cache   Translate Page      
#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Jos. A. Bank has opened the doors to the company’s newly renovated flagship location. The new two story 13,800-square-foot store is located at the corner of Madison Avenue and 46th Street, just mere blocks away from Grand Central. The Madison location, originally opened in 1994, has undergone a full transformation to symbolize its focus on continuing the company’s mission of providing the best in quality, fit, and comfort for menswear.

The brand is geared to sell work wear for men, but their focus isn’t just suits, but business casual as well. The first floor of the store services the business casual looks with their sport wear department, and then dress shirts, ties, and accessories department all lead into the register. The first floor is also designed for items described as “pick-up-and-go”. The store features the three key brands under the Jos. A. Bank umbrella including the traveler, 1985, and reserve collection. The traveler collection currently makes up 50 percent of the company’s business.

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

It is considered the most comfortable collection, as the idea around it was that it was the type of suit that guys would be most comfortable travelling in, and has the most performance attributes. The company worked with a third party vendor, 37.5, a temperature regulating fiber that keeps wearers both warm and cool.

The flagship store’s new claim to fame is their made-to-measure offerings. The company has had it for two full years, and is now making a bigger push to claim that slice of the market share. When Tailored Brands acquired Jos. A. Bank the former had just launched made-to-measure, and they would later acquire Joseph Abboud, which led to Jos. A. Bank launching made-to-measure.

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Abboud currently serves as the chief creative director for Tailored Brands, which includes his own eponymous label, Jos. A. Bank and Moores Clothing for Men.

Jos. A. Bank debuts newly remodeled Madison Avenue flagship location

The company’s goal with this store was to marry the heritage of the brand with the aesthetic of the store. To that end, the store boasts 17 foot ceilings, custom furniture and fixtures in rich brown woods, marbled stone tops, brushed copper hardware and antiqued mirrors. Design elements of shields and a map of the city of Baltimore depicted on wall coverings and rugs as an ode to the brand’s first location in Baltimore, Maryland.

While some might question why a brand would make such an investment in a flagship store in an era where brick-and-mortar is seen as a dying art form, Jos. A. Bank sees it as imperative to their omnichannel approach.

“Most men don’t love to shop,” said Mary Beth Blake, brand president of Jos. A. Bank, to FashionUnited. “But they want to feel good and we need to provide that service to them. So we’re working to advance our omnichannel side of things. That includes allowing them to reserve online, try on in-store and reserve online and pick-up in store. We also have a new feature on our site called live, where you aren’t chatting with a bot, you’re chatting with one of real stylists in the store.”

The new live feature allows customer shopping online to be connected with a stylist available at the store nearest to them. If a customer is in New York, they would be immediately connected with a stylist at either the Madison Avenue flagship or the downtown store in FiDi. If a stylist at those stores is unavailable it then geo-targets to connect you with a stylist at the next nearest store in a nearby city or state.

Customers can then decide whether they want sales people to text or video chat, and then decide if they want to buy or create an appointment with that stylist to get help wardrobing or even look into buying custom.

“The new store design with the emphasis on custom, fit and a personalized shopping experience met our intentions,” Blake said to FashionUnited. “We definitely believe in consumer’s choice and we never want to feel them forced to buy anything.”

Custom has become particularly key among their millennial consumers, particularly for weddings. Grooms want to be able to customize their suits to be different from the groomsmen. The store has two dedicated customer shops where customers can get one-on-one service to create a suit, sport coat or dress shirt. The mezzanine level has a lounge area for custom and formalwear fittings that have been designed to comfortably sit larger groups with oversized custom made leather ottomans and larger fitting rooms. Two full feature video walls add enhanced digital visuals throughout the store for an elevated brand experience.

“We have a lot of Italian fabrics,” Blake said to FashionUnited. “Zegna fabrics have been very popular for us among the custom offerings. We definitely see customers responding to our higher end offerings. Our customers have the expendable income to get top custom, and we still offer opening measure price point too for our more entry level customers, and sizes go from extreme slim to big-and-tall.” For their reserve collection, turnaround time for made-to-measure can be up to two weeks, while 1905 can be up to 4 weeks, which is an impressive turnaround time given many made-to-measure offerings can take up to six weeks.

Their shoe department features their third party brands including Allen Edmonds, Cole Haan, and Joseph Abboud and is the only area in the store where they don’t have their own private label. They also keep an in-house tailor in store so customers can get everything tailored to their specifications in-house if they need.

The second floor was merchandised to add more bust forms and mannequins so it would feel less like a warehouse space and more of a shopping experience. This is the second store to have the company’s new design model after their test store in Germantown, Tennessee and they plan to roll out to their fleet of nearly 500 stores. To date, the company is about 70 percent of the way there with getting all of their stores integrated with their new brick-and-mortar design model.

Timed with the opening of the flagship store, Jos. A. Bank will also launch their new “Get Ready for Greatness” brand campaign. Brand advertisements are a relatively new space for Jos. A. Bank in the 114-year history of the company. The first branding ad “Modern Man” was created in 2017, shortly followed by the first brand campaign and creative platform “The Bank Way”. Prior to these campaigns, advertising efforts were solely promotional and sales driven. “The Bank Way” reminded consumers that, for over 100 years, Jos. A. Bank has consistently exceeded the expectations of professional men with clothing of the highest quality and craftsmanship. Now, the “Get Ready for Greatness” campaign continues the momentum of “The Bank Way,” by conveying a message to customers that the brand has always delivered quality clothing for demanding professionals to look and feel their best all day, every day.

The brand’s customer base ranges from Millennials to Baby Boomers, and they have even begun addressing Generation Z at the lower end and more entry level offerings. “Custom has been a gateway for us to the younger consumers,” Blake said. “Custom customers shop more and come in to buy more frequently because they are more into fashion.”

The Midtown boys have found their next destination to suit up.

           Comment on That the Civil War Was Fought to End Slavery Is a Myth by JK Brown       Cache   Translate Page      
I recently read Lincoln's speech at a sanitary fair, in Baltimore, April 1864. I was looking for the paragraph on liberty, but was surprised by the following: "When the war began, three years ago, neither party, nor any man, expected it would last till now. Each looked for the end, in some way, long ere to—day. Neither did any anticipate that domestic slavery would be much affected by the war. But here we are; the war has not ended, and slavery has been much affected—how much needs not now to be recounted. So true is it that man proposes, and God disposes." Note the "Neither did any anticipate that domestic slavery would be much affected by the war." That's a revealing on the issue of slavery. http://teachingamericanhistory.org/library/document/address-at-a-sanitary-fair/

Birdland Theater is proud to announce that singer Julie Budd will perform in concert on Wednesday through Saturday, May 1 - 4 at 7pm. Ms. Budd, backed by longtime musical director Herb Bernstein, will perform material by such varied songwriters as Michel Legrand, Duke Ellington. Laura Nyro, Jule Styne, Cy Coleman, Dorothy Fields, Marvin Hamlisch, Carole King, Barry Manilow, Anthony Newley, Marc Shaiman, Burt Bacharach & Hal David, Neil Sedaka, Oscar Levant, and more.

"Growing up, the songs I was singing were written by the greats - people that in my future, I would know and work with. 'The Songs Of My Life' is my journey in music...my life in art...and how it all shaped my life and good fortune for the next 53 years in show business. This is my heartfelt tribute to the great composers and lyricists that I had the grand fortune to know. How lucky I was to perform their brilliant works! After all...what good is a voice if you don't have wonderful songs to sing?"

Julie Budd began her professional career at the tender age of twelve, after winning a talent show while vacationing with her family. In the audience, was renowned Producer/Orchestrator, Herb Bernstein, who recorded some of the greatest artists ever known to music, including singer/songwriter Laura Nyro. While producing Nyros' first hit album, Bernstein was also recording the eminent TV talk show host, Merv Griffin. Herb immediately took Julie under his wing and introduced her to Merv at a recording session in New York City. Merv immediately invited her to appear on "The Merv Griffin Show."

What followed as Budd's career blossomed, were over a hundred more invitations from Merv to appear on his show! Today, Julie continues to perform her concerts and one-woman shows, nationally and internationally while adding some of the most prestigious stages to her roster: Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, London Palladium, Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center and many of the finest Las Vegas Showrooms. In addition, Julie Budd had the distinction of touring with the late, great Marvin Hamlisch, who personally invited her to be his guest artist for seven years.

If that's not enough, Julie is a favorite to many of the symphony orchestras throughout the country including: Baltimore Symphony, National Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, Austin Symphony, Alabama Symphony, Philadelphia Symphony, Dallas Symphony and the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra.

          This Troublesome Priest      Cache   Translate Page      
The young boy from Cheapside who grew up to be the nemesis of the King of England, and later, a Saint. The life and achievements of St. Thomas Becket are impressive no matter the times. Just as famous as his deeds however, was his infamous end...


The Angevin Empire at its height
Map created by the author
The twelfth century was a tumultuous time for the young Kingdom of England. Fifty two years before 1118, the year of Thomas' birth, the Saxon dynasty had been overthrown forever, replaced with the iron rule of the Normans. The lives of many, on both sides of the Channel, were changed forever. Around this time, Gilbert Becket decided to move his family from the village of Thierville in Normandy to London, there to seek a new life in the new Norman domain. By the time his son Thomas was born, he was a wealthy and respected London merchant and landowner. Young Thomas spent many a summer on the Sussex estates of the family friend Richer de L'Aigle, whiling away the sunny days hunting and hawking, fine pursuits of a young man. Schooled at Merton Priory and later Grammar School in London, young Thomas received a fine education for the day, thanks to his father's success in business. But dark times were coming. The peaceful days of King Henry I were soon overthrown in a ruinous civil war. After the tragic shipwreck which claimed the life of Prince William Adelin, the broken hearted Henry was left with only his daughter, Matilda, as his hope for an heir. Long did the King try to persuade the English barons to accept her, the first woman to reign in her own right in the history of England. Matilda, whose husband the Holy Roman Emperor Henry V had died not long before, was soon wed to Geoffrey of Anjou, so that Henry I might gain an alliance with the mighty County of Anjou in France. To the relief of the King, the couple produced a male heir, Henry. But when the King died in 1135, the ever suspicious Norman lords refused to acknowledge Matilda, throwing in their lot for Stephen, the Count of Blois, triggering a near twenty year devastating civil war in England between the forces loyal to Matilda, and those loyal to Stephen, in a period infamously known to history as The Anarchy. The war laid waste to vast swathes of Albion, and it was in this destruction that Gilbert Becket once prosperous trade crumbled. Young Thomas took up a job as a clerk to help the family, and soon ended up in the employ of Theobald of Bec, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the most powerful avatar of Christendom in the realm.


King Henry II of England
Image taken from the Manuscipt of the
Historia Anglorum of Matthew Parris
Escaping the turmoil that England had been hurled into, young Thomas marched forth as an emissary of Canterbury to Rome, spending many years in Europe learning the intricacies of many laws of the Church. After what seemed an age without end, there seemed to be hope at last for the dystopic British Isles. In December 1154, after a generation of endless war, the Norman dynasty lay in flames, when Henry the son of Empress Matilda landed on the southern coast of England. On the 19th of December, he was crowned King Henry II of England, Duke of Normandy, Count of Anjou, Duke of Aquitaine and Lord of Ireland, alongside his new Queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine. The House of Normandy was over. The House of Plantagenet, a dynasty that would rule England longer than any other, even to this day, had begun. By conquest and by marriage, King Henry now ruled one of the mightiest realms in Europe, a vast state known as the Angevin Empire. In those bygone days, the kings of England ruled more of France than the King of France did. The lawlessness of the Anarchy was over, and once again the people of England enjoyed peace. With order restored, young Thomas returned triumphantly to the British Isles, and was granted the honour of Archdeacon of Canterbury, and offices in Lincoln Cathedral and St. Paul's Cathedral. The merchant's son was rising rapidly within the ranks of Feudal England...


Thomas Becket Enthroned
Nottingham Alabaster
With all the tenacity and determination that so characterised him, Becket hurled himself into his mission, impressing Archbishop Theobald with his whirlwind efficiency. Such was his drive, within a year the Archbishop recommended Becket directly to the King himself. Further up the rungs of the ladder of state did young Thomas go, when the King appointed him Lord Chancellor, arguably the most powerful minister of the kingdom, and custodian of the Great Seal of the Realm, a spectacular honour for one of such relatively humble birth. Fro seven years Thomas shone once more as comptroller of the King's finances, gaining the King's trust to such a degree that the heir to the throne the young Prince Henry was even sent to live in Becket's household. It was once remarked that the Prince once said that Becket became more a father to him than the King himself. When Theobald died in 1162, the mightiest Bishopric in England fell vacant, and to many there was no doubt as to whom should succeed. A deeply pious man at heart, Becket cast aside the Chancellorship and took the cloth on the 3rd of June, taking vows of asceticism, and pledging to champion the cause of Christendom in England. Storm clouds began to gather between the King and his new Archbishop, dismayed as Henry was that Becket had put the Church before State. It began with the rejection of the authority of secular courts over the clergy by Becket, which challenged the power of the state. Alarmed at this sudden thinking, King Henry conspired to turn the other Bishops against him. Yet rumours of treachery ran common, and in 1164, the King decreed, near four hundred years before Henry VIII, that England would not automatically bow to the wishes of the Pope of Rome (due to his fame, one often considers Henry VIII as the man who grappled with the Pope - the truth is that the Kings of England had wrestled with Rome for centuries by the time the Reformation took place). It took all of Henry's charisma and majesty with words to sway the gathered courts at Clarendon, but carry the day he did. Archbishop Becket however, refused to sign the heretical treaty. The board was set. Thomas Becket was ordered to present himself before the royal council on charges of contempt of royal authority. The Council, jealous of Becket's upstart power, convicted him, and the Archbishop was banished from the realm.


Evading the King's men, Becket fled to France where he was given sanctuary by King Louis VII in the monastery of Pontigny. For near two years he resisted in exile, excommunicating his foes in the English Church, for no precedent existed for removing the Archbishop of Canterbury from power. Meanwhile, King Henry seethed. The looming eyes of Pope Alexander III were ever watchful, but when Becket threatened the King of England himself with excommunication (a fate worse than death in the medieval world), the King's frustration turned to anger. When the Pope agreed a truce, Becket returned to England, immune to earthly shackles, and continued to excommunicate all in his path. When he heard that Prince Henry had been crowned in his absence, an act only the Archbishop of Canterbury could perform, he excommunicated the Archbishop of York.


King Henry was in Normandy when the news reached him. As news of rifts in his vast empire fell upon his ears, a cry of rage shook the hall, with words that to this day have been in dispute:


                 " What miserable fools and traitors hath I nourished and
                    raised in my household, who grant their Lord be so trifled
                   by so low born a cleric! "
                           - KING HENRY II ON BECKET


Some say his fury was stronger still, and that the King roared in frustration:

                 " Will no one rid me of this turbulent priest?! "
                          - KING HENRY II's LETHAL WISH


The Murder of Thomas Becket
English Psalter of 1250,
currently in the Walters Art Gallery,
Baltimore
Legendary was the wrath of the Plantagenet Kings, and all who looked on feared what irrational deeds anger would inspire in the King. Standing there that day were four knights, Hugh de Morville, William de Tracy, Richard le Breton and Reginald FitzUrse, all eager to serve and please their King. Mistaking the King's fiery words for royal command, the four rode forth from court to carry out their terrible deed. On sunset of the fifth day of Christmas 1170, the four knights arrived in Canterbury town, their eyes set on the towering cathedral. As evening fell on Canterbury, the clergy and the Archbishop were celebrating the Vespers service. A certain Subdeacon of the cathedral beckoned the knights in, a name since blackened in history. The monks loyal to the Archbishop moved to bar the doors, but their hand was stayed by Becket. "'Tis not proper", spake he, "that a house of prayer,a church of Christ, be made a fortress". Seizing their chance, the knights burst in in full armour, sharpened swords gleaming in the failing light. "Where is Thomas Becket, traitor of the King and Kingdom", one demanded to the congregation. Silence reigned. "Where is the Archbishop!" they cried aloud. At this Becket rose to his feet and faced his foe. "The righteous will be like a bold lion and free from fear", said he. Into the evenlight he moved, "Here I am, not a traitor of the King but a priest; why do you seek me?". At the altar Archbishop Becket stopped, and turned to face the image of the holy confessor St. Benedict. The four men of steel bore down upon him, "Absolve and restore to communion those thou hast excommunicated, and reconcile those who hath been banished", the knights commanded. "No penance hath been made, so I shall not absolve them", the Archbishop coolly replied. "Then you", spake they, "will now die and will suffer what thou hast earned". "And I", said he, "am prepared to die for my Lord, so that in my blood the Church will attain liberty and peace; but in the name of Almighty God I forbid that thou striketh my men, cleric or layman should he be".


"With rapid motion they laid sacrilegious hands on him", and moved to drag him from the sanctum, for to strike down a man of the cloth was sin enough, but to do so on hallowed ground was the devil's work indeed. But Archbishop Becket was loath to release his grip upon the stone pillar. Seeing Reginald coming near, Archbishop Becket spoke his last command. "Touch me not, Reginald, you who oweth me faith and obedience, you who foolishly follow these men". A burning rage did this spark in the knight, who rounded on Becket, "I owe thee neither faith nor obedience when faced with fealty I owe my King". Seeing Doom coming now, Thomas Becket lowered in prayer when Reginald's blade sang through the air. With one mighty blow, as the heavenly crown was laid on the Archbishop's head, his earthly one was hewn by steel. A second blow met its mark, but not yet over was it. On the third strike he sank to his knees, "for the name of Jesus I am ready to embrace death", said he. So forceful was the knight's blow, the blade of the sword was shattered upon the cold stone below. An accomplice in the Church, loyal to the King, spoke the last. "We can leave this place, knights, he will rise no more".


The Becket Casket
Reliquary made c. 1180-1190,
Currently in the Victoria & Albert Museum, London
Soon after news of the impious deed spread like wildfire through Europe, and with it admiration for the pious Becket. Crowds across the continent chanted his name and called him martyr. two years later, Pope Alexander III declared him a saint. The four assassins fled north to Knaresborough Castle, and holed up for a year. All four were excommunicated by the Pope, yet journeyed to Rome, braving threats of lynching, to plead before the Vicar of Christ. Pope Alexander was merciful, and decreed that each man serve penance for fourteen years in the Holy Lands. To Outremer were they henceforth banished. But it was King Henry who was racked with grief and guilt at the horrible deed. Never truly meaning his death, after all, they had once been friends, the King fell into a desperate sorrow, and a fear for his immortal soul. On the 12th July, 1174, the King performed an unprecedented humility. By the Church of St. Dunstans, the King of England set out barefoot and clad in sackcloth, and undertook his pilgrimage to Canterbury Cathedral, whipped along the road to redemption. The monks, afraid of relic thieves, buried Becket beneath the floor in the East of the Cathedral. Fifty years later, King Henry III, grandson of Henry II, gave them a lavish new setting in pride of place within the Cathedral. There they regally sat until they were destroyed by order of King Henry VIII in 1538. The most intact relic survives today in the so called Becket Casket. Canterbury has ever since been a great pilgrimage site in Christendom, with images of the Saint all over the Christian World. Quite a legacy for the boy from Cheapside...

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.

          O'Malley introduces whistleblower system for complaints against Boston bishops      Cache   Translate Page      

Boston, Mass., Mar 11, 2019 / 03:30 pm (CNA).- The Archdiocese of Boston has announced it will implement a third-party system for reporting allegations of abuse or misconduct against bishops in the diocese.

Boston is the second archdiocese to announce such a system, after a proposed national reporting system for allegations against bishops was scuttled during a November 2018 meeting of the U.S. bishops’ conference.

“I have decided to implement EthicsPoint, a confidential, anonymous and third-party system, exclusively for the reporting of misconduct by a Cardinal, Bishop or Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Boston,” Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston announced in a March 8 letter.

“Since 2011 we have utilized EthicsPoint for concerns of potential ethics violations, financial improprieties, and other violations of the Archdiocesan Code of Conduct related to financial matters.”

“Like the existing system currently in use, this will be web based and have a toll-free hotline to make a report. Reports will be sent to members of my Independent Review Board who will be charged to immediately notify law enforcement for claims of abuse as well as the apostolic nuncio; the diplomatic representative to the U.S. of the Holy See. The system will be hosted on secured servers at the EthicsPoint facility and is not connected to the Archdiocese of Boston website, intranet system or the existing EthicsPoint system currently in use. We anticipate the system being up and running soon and will provide more information at that time,” O’Malley said.

The cardinal said that the importance of “an effective reporting mechanism when a Bishop or Cardinal has failed in his duty to protect children or has himself abused children or vulnerable adults” was discussed at a February Vatican summit focused on prevent child abuse.

The bishop said he believes the U.S. bishops conference will introduce a national reporting procedure at some time, adding his desire to “address this need immediately for the Archdiocese of Boston.”

In November, the U.S. bishops’ conference was stopped by the Vatican from voting on proposals that would have created a nationalized third-party whistleblower system for reporting allegations against bishops, and a lay-led independent commission for investigating those allegations. The Vatican said it had not had sufficient time to review the proposals ahead of the scheduled vote.   

The Archdiocese of Baltimore announced a whistleblower hotline for complaints against bishops in January, as well as a plan for the archdiocesan independent review board to receive complaints and forward them to appropriate civil authorities.

When O’Malley announced Boston’s system, he also said that the Vatican’s abuse summit had pointed to the importance of hearing from the victims of clerical sexual abuse.

“The way forward for the Church is to hold as a priority the voices and experience of survivors, to keep them close to every step we take and make all possible efforts to provide the means for them to be heard.”

“In Boston we will continue to provide pastoral care and counseling for survivors. We will continue to carry out programs of prevention and education in our schools and parishes. We will continue to do background checks annually for bishops, priests, all archdiocesan personnel, and all volunteers who work with children and young people,” the cardinal added.

O’Malley faced criticism last year, after it was reported that he had received a letter raising concerns about laicized bishop Theodore McCarrick’s sexual misconduct with seminarians, and did not respond by forwarding it to the proper ecclesiastical authorities. The cardinal apologized for the way that letter, and others like it, were handled in his office.

The cardinal said that he left the Vatican abuse summit “convinced that no bishop could possibly say that his diocese is not affected by these issues or that this is not a problem in his country and culture. Patience among our people and in the wider community is exhausted and understandably the call is rising for effective action.”

          These were the 50 most violent cities in the world in 2018      Cache   Translate Page

  • In 2018, 42 of the world's 50 most violent cities were in Latin America. Four were in the US, with another in Puerto Rico.
  • The region is the world's most violent, excluding war zones, with bloodshed driven by organized crime and exacerbated by chronic instability, poverty, and corruption.

In 2018, Latin America retained the ignominious distinction of being home to most of the cities on Mexico's Citizens' Council for Public Security's annual ranking of the world's most violent cities, released on Tuesday.

Of the 50 cities on the list, 42 are in Latin America. Fifteen were in Mexico, 14 in Brazil, and six in Venezuela. Two Colombian cities were on the list, as were two Honduran cities, and El Salvador, Guatemala, and Jamaica all had one. San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico, was also on the list.

Four US cities were listed: St. Louis, Baltimore, Detroit, and New Orleans.

Read last year's list: These were the 50 most violent cities in the world in 2017

The list is limited to cities with more than 300,000 people and doesn't include cities in war zones, such as Syria or Ukraine. The council said that went assessing cities, it sought to include "localities that form a unique urban system, clearly distinguishable from others, independent of the geographic-administrative divisions inside the countries."

Violence in Latin America is in large part driven by drug trafficking and organized crime. Insecurity is also exacerbated by political instability, poverty, and poor economic conditions. Corruption, abuses by officials, and impunity also facilitate crime.

Mexico has seen profound increases in deadly violence in recent years, driven in large part by the fragmentation of criminal groups. This year Mexico displaced Brazil as the country with the most cities on the list, despite Brazil having some 80 million more residents. One of Mexico's most popular tourist cities, Los Cabos, topped the list last year but is not on it this year, which the council attributes to one criminal group winning control of the area.

See the 2016 rankings: The 50 most violent cities in the world in 2016

Incomplete data also challenges the council's tabulations, particularly in Venezuela, where the government has in the past not released homicide data, and where other estimates, such as those by newspapers, are incomplete or inconsistent.

Venezuela's "growing inability to count its dead" underscores the very serious crises it faces, the council states.

Here's the top 50:

Le'veon Bell, while still playing for the Steelers

After multiple years of franchise tags, including an entire season last year in which he sat out, running back Le’Veon Bell has finally signed a long-term deal.

Bell has agreed to sign with the New York Jets for four years and $52.5 million, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported just after midnight on Twitter. The deal, which includes $35 million in guaranteed money, per Schefter’s ESPN write-up, will become official when the league year begins Wednesday afternoon.

“I’m back in the green baby, let’s get it,” Bell tweeted minutes later. The running back played his college ball at Michigan State, which like the Jets wears green uniforms.

The Jets had been considered the Bell frontrunner heading into the offseason, and reports earlier Tuesday had named the Jets a finalist for Bell, along with the Baltimore Ravens, per Newsday.

Boy, that was a weird sentence to type. After 16 seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, Terrell Suggs has reportedly signed with the Arizona Cardinals, according to Ian Rapoport.
          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.

In 2014 he signed on with the Baltimore Orioles but did not pitch. In 2015 he was given a contract by the Toronto Blue Jays.

In his twelve year career Santana won two Cy Young Awards, three ERA titles & one victory title.He has been named to four All Star squads as well.

Santana is 139-78 life time with a 3.20 ERA (247th all time). He struck out 1988 batters (85th all time) with a 8.883 strike out per nine inning ratio (18th best all time). He has walked 567 in 2025 innings of work, his 2.519 base on balls average per nine innings is 21st best all time. Santana has ten shut outs, with 15 complete games in 360 games. 

 
Family: Johan & his wife Yasmile, have two daughters & live in Miromar Lakes, Florida. 

Charity: He is very active in the community, doing a lot for work for local hospitals & charities through the Johan Santana Foundation.

          Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music Announces its 57th Season      Cache   Translate Page      

The Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music, America's longest running festival of new orchestral music, celebrates its 57th season, July 28 - August 11, 2019, with a remarkable women-centric season, featuring a series of relevant and forward-looking commissioned works.

This is the Festival's third season with Music Director and Conductor Cristian M?celaru at the helm, and the esteemed conductor continues to push the leading edge at Cabrillo. This year the Festival presents four commissioned works-three world premieres, two US premieres, and eight West Coast premieres. The highlights are many.

On opening night the Festival presents the world premiere of When There Are Nine, an innovative symphonic work by Kristen Kuster reflecting upon and celebrating the life and work of United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, featuring vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth and mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton. Opening weekend also includes DANCE for cello and orchestra by composer Anna Clyne featuring cellist Inbal Segev, as well as second concert appearances by mezzo Jamie Barton and Roomful of Teeth. The second weekend features the West Coast premiere of Academy Award-winner Tan Dun's multimedia harp concerto, Nu Shu: The Secret Songs of Women, about a disappearing language created by and for women in 13thcentury Hunan, China. The Festival's closing night is dedicated to Jazz legend Wynton Marsalis, and features two of his acclaimed compositions for orchestra: his Violin Concerto with renowned violinist Nicola Benedetti, and his epic Blues Symphony.

"Music should and must play a leading role in opening direct and compelling dialogue to achieve a more enlightened social narrative," says M?celaru. The Festival's 2019 season reflects this vision.

Twelve of the fourteen featured composers will be in residence this season, and nine of the featured composers are women. The composers in residence are Preben Antonsen, Clarice Assad, Anna Clyne, Dan Dediu, Melody Eötvös,Vivian Fung, Jake Heggie, Kristin Kuster,Hannah Lash, Wynton Marsalis, Nina Young, and Du Yun.

Special guest artists include Clarice Assad (piano/vocals), Jamie Barton (mezzo-soprano), Roomful of Teeth (vocal ensemble), Inbal Negev (cello), Sarah Fuller (harp), and Nicola Benedetti (violin).

The Festival also continues its "pay-what-you-can" Community Night performance on Thursday, August 8 at 7pm. This hour-long chamber music concert is designed to introduce new audiences to the Festival. Last year's inaugural Community Night was a huge hit, with audiences lined up around the block. This year's concert spotlights members of the Cabrillo Festival Orchestra.

In addition to the featured evening concerts, the Festival continues its tradition of hosting open rehearsals, talks, and the Conductors/Composers Workshop professional training program focusing on the creation and performance of new music, the Free Family Concert with orchestra tour, and the two-day Church Street Fair. On Saturday, August 3, Roomful of Teeth will offer an hour-long singing technique workshop free to the public at the Civic Auditorium.

Notorious - Friday, August 2, 8pm

Maestro M?celaru kicks off the 57th season with works by composers Nina C. Young, Melody Eötvös, and Kristin Kuster.

An American electro-acoustic composer, Nina C. Young is the winner of the 2015 Rome Prize in Musical Composition, the 2014 Charles Ives Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and was named one of WQXR's "10 Imagination-Grabbing, Trailblazing Artists of 2014." The West Coast premiere of her Agnosco Veterisis one of a partnered set of compositions loosely based on quotes found in the literary works of Virgil and Dante.

The West Coast premiere of Australian composer Melody Eötvöswork,The Saqqara Bird, was inspired bythe story of an expedition that took place in Saqqara, Egypt, in 1898, during which a mysterious bird-shaped wooden relic was found. Eötvös writes, "Some hypothesize it is a ceremonial object, while others radically envision it as evidence that the Egyptians were dabbling in the principles of aviation. It has also been posited as a weather vane, an elite child's toy, some sort of boomerang, and as a featured carving on the masthead of a sacred boat. This orchestral work places the Saqqara Bird at the intersection of all these theories in an imagined tapestry of the mechanical, the living, and the ancient becoming new again."

The evening culminates with the centerpiece of this year's Cabrillo Festival: the highly anticipated world premiere of Kristin Kuster's When There Are Nine. Commissioned by the Cabrillo Festival, When There Are Nine reflects on and celebrates the life of United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The title of the work is taken from a 2015 interview with Justice Ginsburg, in which she famously said, "People ask me sometimes--'When will there be enough women on the court?' And my answer is: 'When there are nine.'"

Joining the Cabrillo Festival Orchestra are acclaimed mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton and Grammy Award-winning eight-member vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth, recognized for "revolutionizing choral music" (The New Yorker). The libretto by San Francisco-based poet Megan Levad features nine poems touching upon pivotal civil rights issues that Justice Ginsburg has faced over the course of her distinguished career.

Contrasts - Saturday, August 3, 7pm

M?celaru leads the Festival Orchestra in three West Coast premieres and one US premiere on Saturday, August 3.

Pulitzer Prize-winner Du Yun, described by TheNew York Times as "an indie pop diva with an avant-garde edge," is a Chinese-born composer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. Her 17-minute orchestral work, Kraken, is a non-narrative, non-programmatic piece suggestive of the nonlinear structure of certain novels. She writes, "A Kraken is Sea Dragon or Sea Serpent... These half gods or half demons are at once familiar and foreign, creatures that are alive among many cultures, latitudes and ages. This sensibility is very close to my heart. It speaks of the belief I have that our lives are often lived on the edge, in the inbetweenness; a place not between reality and surreality and/or a dream state, but rather, a transient stage, an interstitial place, a location between right and wrong, true or false."

Cellist Inbal Segev, praised for her "warm, pure and beautiful tone" (Strings Magazine), takes the stage for two West Coast premieres on tonight's program: Anna Clyne's Cello Concerto and Jake Heggie's The Work at Hand.


The Grammy-nominated Anna Clyne is a composer of acoustic and electro-acoustic music. Heralded in The New York Times as a "composer of uncommon gifts and unusual methods," Clyne was first introduced to Festival audiences in 2011 and has been a favorite at Cabrillo ever since. The Festival presents the West Coast premiere of her new cello concerto, DANCE for cello and orchestra, based on a poem by Rumi. DANCE is a co-commission with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, featuring Segev as soloist.

Renowned mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton joins Segev and the Festival Orchestra in Jake Heggie's The Work at Hand, a song cycle set to poems by the late poet Laura Morefield, who died of colon cancer in 2011. Morefield wrote her poems after being diagnosed with cancer, chronicling the difficult and deeply human experience of saying goodbye.Of this composition the Pittsburg Post Gazette wrote, "The work had a profound emotional intelligence, matching and uniting music and text. Ms. Barton's crystalline voice was an effortless, inevitable extension of herself."

The evening concludes with the US premiere of Dan Dediu's Levante, a work of emotional intensity and extreme contraststhat the composer calls a "symbolic auditive mandala."The Romanian composer made his Cabrillo Festival debut in 2018 with Grana, a work loved by critics and audiences alike.

Free Family Concert- Sunday, August 4, 1 pm

The Festival's annual fun, free and always engaging family concert features an interactive work by Brazilian-American composer and vocalist Clarice Assad. The work is inspired by The New York Times bestseller Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, a book featuring 100 bedtime stories about the lives of 100 extraordinary women through the ages. Assad will sing, play piano, and involve the audience in an afternoon designed for first-time concertgoers and music lovers of all ages. The event also includes the popular Tour of the Orchestra, which invites kids to meet the orchestra's different instruments and players.

Roomful of Teeth in Concert- Sunday, August 4, 7pm

The experimental, Grammy Award-winning Roomful of Teeth is dedicated to reimagining the expressive potential of the human voice. The eight-voice ensemble has studied with some of the world's top performers and teachers in extended techniques such as Tuvan and Inuit throat singing, Broadway belting, yodeling, Korean P'ansori, Georgian singing, Sardinian cantu a tenore, Hindustani music, Persian classical voice, and Death Metal vocals.

Secret Songs - Saturday, August 10, 7pm

The second weekend of the Cabrillo Festival begins with works by Hannah Lash, Preben Antonsen, Vivian Fung and Tan Dun.

Maestro M?celaru leads the Festival Orchestra in the West Coast premiere of God Music Bug Music by Hannah Lash, whose work was hailed by The New York Times as "striking and resourceful... handsomely brooding." Lash made her Cabrillo Festival debut in 2015 when she was commissioned by the Festival and the Pacific Harmony Foundation. She writes,"God Music, Bug Music uses the same cell of five notes in both movements of the piece, though very differently in each. In God Music, this cell rages in the brass before it infiltrates the rest of the ensemble, and the movement culminates in rhythmic unison for the whole orchestra. In Bug Music, the motif is expressed canonically in a chamber-like setting, slowly swarming its way into all the instruments, finally reaching full saturation: a breakdown of the canonic structure into a fully chromatic cluster."

Bay Area-based composer and pianist Preben Antonsen makes his Festival debut with Psalm Without Words, a world premiere commissioned by the Cabrillo Festival. "I found myself coming back again and again to a sense of awe at Antonsen's use of the orchestra," wrote Joshua Kosman in the San Francisco Chronicle (when reviewing a piece composed when Antonsen was only 17 years old).This commission is part of an ongoing partnership designed to identify the next generation of talent and sponsored by the Pacific Harmony Foundation, established by celebrated composer John Adams and his wife, the noted landscape photographer Deborah O'Grady.

Receiving its US premiere is Earworms, a whimsical work by JUNO Award-winning composer Vivian Fung. Fung explains, Eagworms "provides a commentary on the world we live in today - it musically depicts our diverted attention spans, our constant barrage of music and other media, and our multi-tasking lives. Since having my son almost three years ago, I have found my life to be more complicated and chaotic, but also all the richer and more meaningful. I find myself at the end of the day humming tunes that have gotten into my head and that I cannot seem to escape no matter how hard I try. Eagworms features snippets of some of the best, most insistent, and most annoying of these tunes and combines them into a playful and quirky arrangement."

The evening concludes with the West Coast premiere of Nu Shu: The Secret Songs of Women, by Academy and Grammy Award-winning composer Tan Dun (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon). This multimedia work for harp and orchestra focuses on a secret, disappearing language created by and for women in 13th century Hunan Province of China. The culmination of years of ethno musicological research, Nu Shu tells the story of this ancient language through music and film, incorporating 12 short films directed by the composer and shot on location in Hunan Province. Harpist Sarah Fuller is the featured soloist.

Wanton - Sunday, August 11, 7pm

Closing night is dedicated to American legend Wynton Marsalis, one of the most accomplished and acclaimed artists and composers of his generation. Marsalis has helped propel jazz to the forefront of contemporary American culture through his performances, recordings, compositions, educational efforts, and his visionary artistic leadership of Jazz at Lincoln Center. Marsalis' love of Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart has also driven him to pursue a career in classical music. He recorded the Haydn, Hummel and Leopold Mozart trumpet concertos at age 20 and won a Grammy Award for his debut recording.

Tonight his friend and frequent collaborator Maestro M?celaru leads the Festival Orchestra in two of Marsalis' celebrated compositions: his Violin Concerto featuring acclaimed Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti and Blues Symphony. Marsalis will be composer in residence at Cabrillo for his first time this season, and while not scheduled to pick up his horn in performance, he will participate in an afternoon talk with M?celaru.

Marsalis' Violin Concerto was written specifically for Benedetti. The piece draws inspiration from the violin concerto's first formation in the Baroque era through its current manifestation in the 21st Century, incorporates a slow movement inspired by an African American spiritual, and explores Benedetti and Marsalis' own musical heritages in Scottish folk and American jazz music, respectively. It is not only a unique fusion of musical styles from around the world but a celebration and representation of collective cultures embodied in one work.

Marsalis' Blues Symphony features a compendium of his encyclopedic knowledge of blues, jazz, and other traditional American music. One of his only pieces composed for purely orchestral forces, this celebration of the blues is heard through the prism of moments in American, and specifically African-American, history, and folklore.

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC
347 AM EDT Wed Mar 13 2019

.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure will move offshore tonight into Thursday. A
strong area of low pressure over the middle of the country will
move northeastward across the Great Lakes Thursday into Friday,
bringing a cold front eastward across the region Friday. High
pressure will follow this weekend.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
High pressure remains over the Mid Atlantic early this morning.
Some cirrus invading the Potomac Highlands (and based on MTR
reports, impacting as far east as DCA), both otherwise the
weather remains chilly and quiet. That should continue to be the
case today, as the ridge axis moves little. Increasing mid-to-
upper level moisture does indicate that it will be on the cloudy
side (with filtered sun), but warm advection would suggest that
temperatures will rise into the 50s. Have tempered highs due to
the cloud cover, especially near metro Baltimore. Similarly,
tonight will be partly/mostly cloudy but tranquil. Low
temperatures will be warmer due to lack of radiational cooling.

&&

.SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/...
Warm advection will continue Thursday as a deep storm system
crosses the Plains and heads toward the western Great Lakes.
Based on this trajectory, the area will remain dry during the
day, with temperatures in the 60s. (It could be warmer based on
850 mb temps given sufficient insolation.)

The attendant cold front will be crossing the area early Friday.
Exact timing matters, as a later fropa would permit a bit of
instability to develop. Will keep a slight chance of thunder,
but at this point would call that risk condition. Am not highly
confident. The Thursday night PoPs will be focused late--after
midnight and especially pre-dawn. Higher chances reside on
Friday.

&&

.LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
Cooler air pushes into the region behind the cold front by Saturday.
Expect dry and seasonably cool conditions, with highs in the upper
40s to low 50s across the region. The only issue Saturday will be
gusty winds out of the WNW, which will make it feel a little cooler,
so it may actually feel more like the low to mid 40s for much of the
region. High pressure continues to hover over the region on Sunday,
with dry conditions expected once again, with highs slightly cooler
than Saturday. However, the winds should not be much of an issue
Sunday.

Sunday night into Monday, a weak clipper low will swing through the
region out of the northern Plains. This system could bring some
rain/snow showers to the higher elevations on Sunday night into
early Monday, with rain showers spreading east into Monday. The
chance is still slight however, as recent guidance is still split on
whether we see any precipitation at all. Whatever does fall will be
light and have little to no impact, just potentially a nuisance
throughout the day on Monday. High temperatures on Monday could see
a slight rebound, with highs in the low 50s.

High pressure will build in from the west Tuesday and Wednesday,
with temperatures decreasing once again. Again, this doesn`t appear
to be a very cold air mass, but temperatures could run 5-10 degrees
below seasonal averages.

&&

.AVIATION /08Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...
VFR flight conditions will prevail through the valid TAF period
with south flow. The first chance at restrictions would be
early Friday (morning push) ahead of a cold front, due to
showers. This threat will persist through much of the day.
Once precise timing can be determined, that window will shrink.

VFR conditions expected through the weekend. However, behind the
cold front, winds could be quite gusty on Saturday (20-25 kts) out
of the WNW. Winds will be much less impactful on Sunday, as high
pressure builds over the region.

&&

.MARINE...
Winds light early this morning under high pressure. South flow
will pick up today and will increase Thursday. However, air
temperatures in the 60s over water temps in the lower-mid 40s
put good mixing in doubt. For that reason, have held off on
Small Craft Advisories. The magnitude of wind may necessitate
Advisories ahead of the frontal passage Thursday night. Have
higher confidence in mixing to SCA criteria behind fropa Friday
night.

On Saturday, behind the frontal passage, winds will be quite gusty
out of the WNW (15-25 kts), so Small Craft Advisories are likely,
especially in the northern and central portions of the Bay and the
Potomac. Farther south, seems a bit more marginal, but still expect
winds close to SCA criteria. Winds will gradually subside by Sunday
afternoon, but SCA conditions could linger into the morning hours.

National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC
328 AM EDT Tue Mar 12 2019

.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure over the central U.S. will build eastward through
Wednesday. A large area of low pressure will approach the
western Great Lakes on Thursday with the trailing cold front
eventually passing through the region on Friday. High pressure
will follow for the weekend.
&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
Cold front has passed through the area with little fanfare.
Although northwest winds have picked up, temperatures have yet
to drop. Believe the best cold advection will be in the
0600-1200 UTC (now through sunrise) window. Thus, high
temperatures will be about 10 degrees cooler than yesterday.
Gusty northwest winds will continue through the day as the
mixed layer deepens.

High pressure will be atop the Mid Atlantic tonight.
Consequently, have deviated from the best model blend toward one
that favors radiational cooling. That said, return flow...and
upper level moisture/clouds...will be on the doorstep by dawn.

&&

.SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/...
Deep low pressure over the Rockies will lift toward the Great
Lakes during the middle of the week. Warmer (and moister) air
will overspread the area Wednesday into Thursday. As the cold
front approaches, support for showers will improve...primarily
Thursday afternoon and night.

&&

.LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
On Friday, a cold front will push through the region sometime in the
afternoon/evening. With high pressure still offshore, and the cold
front approaching, southerly flow will continue to pump in warm and
moist air. This will bring temperatures up into the mid to upper
60s. As the front pushes through, there will be a period of showers
and maybe even a few thunderstorm thanks to the warm and moist air
mass in place.

Cold air advects in behind the front Friday night and into the
weekend as high pressure builds in from the west. This is not a very
cold air mass, but will see temperatures run about 5 degrees below
average or so, with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s. Gusty winds
out of the WNW will make it feel a bit cooler on Saturday behind the
cold front, but should diminish on Sunday. Dry conditions will
prevail through at least Sunday.

On Monday, a weak low pressure system moving through northwest flow
aloft may impact the region, but should bring only light
precipitation amounts, primarily to northern portions of the CWA.
Still a bit of uncertainty here, as this system could go to the
north and leave us dry. High temperatures likely stay around the
upper 40s to low 50s.

&&

.AVIATION /07Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
VFR flight conditions will prevail for the next couple of days.
Northwest winds will gust up to 20 kt today, providing the only
weather consideration. Winds will be light tonight, and will
become light south Wednesday.

A cold front will be approaching the terminals Thursday. Flow
will be increasing during the afternoon, with an increasing risk
of showers. Flight restrictions will be possible by Thursday
night.

The cold front will sweep through the region on Friday,
bringing scattered showers, and perhaps a few thunderstorms to
the region, so some visibility restrictions are possible during
showers or storms. Best timeframe seems to be early afternoon
for western terminals, spreading east through mid to late
afternoon. Otherwise, VFR conditions expected through the
weekend. Gusty winds out of the SSW (15-20 kts) are likely
Friday ahead of the front, then winds will be a little stronger
(20-25 kts) on Saturday out of the WNW behind the front.

&&

.MARINE...
Northwest winds have picked up across the waters in the wake of
a cold frontal passage. At this point, 20 kt gusts have been
realized across the open waters of the Bay. After daybreak,
mixing will improve areawide, and the Small Craft Advisory
expands to all waters.

High pressure arrives quickly tonight, so winds should diminish
rather abruptly. Light south flow Wednesday in the return flow
increases Thursday as a cold front approaches.

Gusty SSW winds around 20-25 kts are likely on Friday ahead of an
approaching cold front, so Small Craft Advisories will likely be
needed for all waters. As the front passes, winds turn out of the
WNW Saturday at 20-25 kts, likely resulting in continuing Small
Craft Advisories for all waters.

&&

.LWX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
DC...None.
MD...None.
VA...None.
WV...None.
MARINE...Small Craft Advisory until 6 PM EDT this evening for
Small Craft Advisory from 9 AM this morning to 6 PM EDT this
evening for ANZ535-536.

          Browns im Beckham-Rausch - Der Aufstieg der NFL-Lachnummer       Cache   Translate Page      

Als Fan der Cleveland Browns braucht man ganz ein dickes Fell.

Kaum ein Twitter-User oder Comedian, der keinen lockeren Spruch über die fast schon sprichwörtliche Unfähigkeit des NFL-Traditionsteams auf Lager hatte.

Den Spott erarbeiteten sich die Browns allerdings sehr hart. Zwischen 2003 und 2017 schafften sie es ganze zweimal, eine Saison mit weniger als zehn Niederlagen zu beenden. Der letzte Playoff-Sieg 1994 ging noch auf das Konto von Coach Bill Belichick. Coach Hue Jackson schaffte es 2016 und 2017 sogar gerade einmal, ein Spiel von 32 zu gewinnen.

Doch plötzlich ist alles anders. Spätestens mit dem Monster-Trade für Megastar Odell Beckham jr. sind die Browns das It-Team der NFL und werden von den Zockern in Las Vegas als Super-Bowl-Kandidat gehandelt. Dieser Umschwung ist vor allem einem Mann zu verdanken.

Browns-Star: "John Dorsey ist ein Genie"

"John Dorsey ist offiziell ein Genie", twitterte Clevelands Defensive Back Damarious Randall. Dorsey ist der seit 2017 amtierender General Manager der Browns.

Der Ex-Spieler lernte bei den Green Bay Packers seit 1991 das Gewinner-Gen kennen und wie man ein Siegerteam aufbaut. Bei den Chiefs lief zum ersten Mal in der Verantwortung noch nicht alles rund, aber in Cleveland hat er bisher ein glückliches Händchen.

Er schaffte es, den vorhandenen talentierten Spielern wie David Njoku oder Myles Garrett noch mehr Potenzial hinzuzufügen und gleichzeitig der gesamten Franchise eine ganz neue Mentalität einzuimpfen.

Mayfield, Chubb, Landry als Volltreffer

Dafür war vor allem Quarterback Baker Mayfield verantwortlich. Der Spielmacher galt vor dem Draft 2018 keinesfalls als sicherer erster Pick, aber Dorsey schlug bei dem Gewinnertyp mit der feurigen Persönlichkeit zu.

Vor allem nach der Entlassung von Hue Jackson, der zunächst noch Tyrod Taylor den Vorzug gegeben hatte, starteten die Browns durch. Rookie Nick Chubb drehte nach dem Trade von Carlos Hyde nach Jacksonville richtig auf.

Receiver Jarvis Landry kam aus Miami, den gefloppten Spielmacher DeShone Kizer schickte er nach Green Bay und bekam dafür jenen Randall. Auch die anderen Draftpicks wie Denzel Ward waren deutliche Verstärkungen.

Kitchens bringt Offense in die Spur 

Auch die Entscheidung für Defensivspezialist Gregg Williams als Head Coach und Freddie Kitchens als Offensive Coordinator waren goldrichtig. Unter diesem Duo gewannen die Browns fünf der letzten acht Spiele - so viele wie zuvor in drei kompletten Saisons nicht. Kitchens ist jetzt der Boss und bekommt mit Beckham eine weitere Waffe.

"Freddie war für uns die richtige Entscheidung. Er hat sein ganzes Leben dem Football gewidmet, er ist ein Anführer, integer und immer offen für neue Ideen. Er hat eine große Vision für dieses Team", lobt Dorsey.

Browns im "Win Now"-Modus

Mit Beckham und Defensive Tackle Sheldon Richardson (kommt aus Minnesota) schalten die Browns von Neuafbau in den "Win Now"-Modus.

ANZEIGE: Jetzt NFL-Fanartikel von deinem Lieblingsteam kaufen - hier geht es zum Shop

Die Offense sieht richtig explosiv aus. Beckham bildet mit Landry, seinem College-Teamkollegen aus LSU-Tagen, ein fantastisches Duo. Gemeinsam mit Mayfield trainierten sie bereits 2018 im Sommer in Kalifornien.

Ihr früherer Receiver-Coach Adam Henry macht diesen Job jetzt auch bei den Browns. Diese Beziehungen sollten OBJ den Abschied aus der Metropole New York etwas versüßen, auch wenn Cleveland dieser Glamour-Faktor natürlich abgeht.

Nur Patriots und Chiefs größere Super-Bowl-Favoriten

Dazu kommen Chubb, Duke Johnson, der starke junge Tight End Njoku und der in Kansas City wegen seines Ausrasters gegenüber einer Frau gefeuerte Kareem Hunt.

Die Verteidigung wurde neben Richardson auch noch mit Olivier Vernon (ebenfalls von den Giants) verstärkt. Die Defensive Line dürfte der Konkurrenz den Angstschweiß auf die Stirn treiben.

Die Browns sind außerdem auch an Star-Safety Earl Thomas dran. Aktuell gibt Las Vegas nur den Patriots und Chiefs in der AFC bessere Super-Bowl-Chancen.

AFC North blutet aus

In der AFC North ist das jahrelange Kellerkind ohnehin plötzlich der Topfavorit. Platzhirsch Pittsburgh hat Antonio Brown und Le'Veon Bell verloren, den Baltimore Ravens laufen die Free Agents scharenweise weg und die Bengals? Nun ja…

Die Vorgänge bei der Konkurrenz blieben Dorsey natürlich nicht verborgen, auch deshalb greift er zu den aggressiven Moves und verpulvert einige Draftpicks.

Das und ein oftmals nicht ganz einfacher Typ wie Beckham stellen natürlich auch ein Risiko dar, aber Dorsey weiß, dass Cleveland - nicht zuletzt nach LeBron James' zweitem Abschied vom Basketball-Team der Cavaliers - eine Football-Euphorie entwickelt.

Nur ein paar Kilometer entfernt in Canton entstand einst das Spiel. Die Menschen leben Football und sind endlich wieder stolz auf ihre Brownies. Gelacht wird aktuell nur in Cleveland.

La indignación mundial que ha sido fortalecida desde el 15-M, occupy wallstreet y el 15O, sugiere que si existe un proceso de transformación de conciencia activo en la humanidad, un proceso de regeneración de nuestra autonomía para pensar y crear cohesión.

Ese fue el espíritu de Thoreau y su famoso escrito sobre la desobediencia civil. Sus palabras y su humanidad resaltan hoy más que nunca en un mundo en visible transformación de su sistema. Una oda a la indignación y a nuestros sueños de paz y organización humana armónica.

DESOBEDIENCIA CIVIL - HENRY THOREAU

Creo de todo corazón en el lema “El mejor gobierno es el que tiene que gobernar menos”, y me gustaría verlo hacerse efectivo más rápida y sistemáticamente. Bien llevado, finalmente resulta en algo en lo que también creo: “El mejor gobierno es el que no tiene que gobernar en absoluto”. Y cuando los pueblos estén preparados para ello, ése será el tipo de gobierno que tengan. En el mejor de los casos, el gobierno no es más que una conveniencia, pero en su mayoría los gobiernos son inconvenientes y todos han resultado serlo en algún momento. Las objeciones que se han hecho a la existencia de un ejército permanente, que son varias y de peso, y que merecen mantenerse, pueden también por fin esgrimirse en contra del gobierno. El ejército permanente es sólo el brazo del gobierno establecido. El gobierno en sí, que es únicamente el modo escogido por el pueblo para ejecutar su voluntad, está igualmente sujeto al abuso y la corrupción antes de que el pueblo pueda actuar a través suyo. Somos testigos de la actual guerra con Méjico, obra de unos pocos individuos comparativamente, que utilizan como herramienta al gobierno actual; en principio, el pueblo no habría aprobado esta medida.

El gobierno de los Estados Unidos ¿qué es sino una tradición, bien reciente por cierto, que lucha por proyectarse intacta hacia la posteridad, pero perdiendo a cada instante algo de su integridad? No tiene la vitalidad y fuerza de un solo hombre: porque un solo hombre puede doblegarlo a su antojo. Es una especie de fusil de madera para el mismo pueblo, pero no es por ello menos necesario para ese pueblo, que igualmente requiere de algún aparato complicado que satisfaga su propia idea de gobierno. Los gobiernos demuestran, entonces, cuán exitoso es imponérsele a los hombres y aún, hacerse ellos mismos sus propias imposiciones para su beneficio. Es excelente, tenemos que aceptarlo. Sin embargo, este gobierno nunca adelantó una empresa, excepto por la algarabía con la que sacó el cuerpo. No mantiene al país libre. No deja al Oeste establecido. No educa. El carácter inherente al pueblo americano es el responsable de todo lo que se ha logrado, y hubiera hecho mucho más si el gobierno no le hubiera puesto zancadilla, como ha ocurrido tantas veces. Porque el gobierno es una estratagema por la cual los hombres intentan dejarse en paz los unos a los otros y llega al máximo de conveniencia cuando los gobernados son dejados en paz.

Si el mercado y el comercio no estuvieran hechos de caucho, jamás lograrían salvar los obstáculos que los legisladores les atraviesan en forma sistemática. Y si uno fuera a juzgar a esos señores sólo por el efecto de sus acciones, y no en parte por sus intenciones, merecerían ser castigados como a los malhechores que atraviesan troncos sobre los rieles del ferrocarril.

Pero, para hablar en forma práctica y como ciudadano, a diferencia de aquellos que se llaman “antigobiernistas”, yo pido, no como “antigobiernista” sino como ciudadano, y de inmediato, un mejor gobierno. Permítasele a cada individuo dar a conocer el tipo de gobierno que lo impulsaría a respetarlo y eso ya sería un paso ganado para obtener ese respeto. Después de todo, la razón práctica por la cual, una vez que el poder está en manos del pueblo, se le permite a una mayoría, y por un período largo de tiempo, regir, no es porque esa mayoría esté tal vez en lo correcto, ni porque le parezca justo a la minoría, sino porque físicamente son los más fuertes. Pero un gobierno en el que la mayoría rige en todos los casos no se puede basar en la justicia, aún en cuanto ésta es entendida por los hombres. ¿No puede haber un gobierno en el que las mayorías no decidan de manera virtual lo correcto y lo incorrecto – sino a conciencia?, ¿en el que las mayorías decidan sólo los problemas para los cuales la regulación de la conveniencia sea aplicable? ¿Tiene el ciudadano en algún momento, o en últimas, que entregarle su conciencia al legislador? ¿Para qué entonces la conciencia individual? Creo que antes que súbditos tenemos que ser hombres. No es deseable cultivar respeto por la ley más de por lo que es correcto. La única obligación a la que tengo derecho de asumir es a la de hacer siempre lo que creo correcto. Se dice muchas veces, y es cierto, que una corporación no tiene conciencia; pero una corporación de personas conscientes es una corporación con conciencia. La ley nunca hizo al hombre un ápice más justo, y a causa del respeto por ella, aún el hombre bien dispuesto se convierte a diario en el agente de la injusticia. Resultado corriente y natural de un indebido respeto por la ley es el ver filas de soldados, coronel, capitán, sargento, polvoreros, etc., marchando en formación admirable sobre colinas y cañadas rumbo a la guerra, contra su voluntad, alás!, contra su sentido común y sus conciencias, lo que hace la marcha más ardua y produce un pálpito en el corazón. No les cabe duda de que la tarea por cumplir es infame; todos están inclinados hacia la paz. Pero, qué son? Son hombres acaso? O pequeños fuertes y polvorines al servicio de algún inescrupuloso que detenta el poder? Visiten un patio de la Armada y observen un marino, el hombre que el gobierno americano puede hacer, o mejor en lo que lo puede convertir con sus artes nigrománticas – una mera sombra y reminiscencia de humanidad, un desarraigado puesto de lado y firmes, y, se diría, enterrado ya bajo las armas con acompañamiento fúnebre...aunque puede ser que
“No se oyó ni un tambor,
ni la salva de adiós escuchamos,
cuando el cuerpo del héroe y su honor
en la tumba en silencio enterramos”.
La masa de hombres sirve pues al Estado, no como hombres sino como máquinas, con sus cuerpos. Son el ejército erguido, la milicia, los carceleros, los alguaciles, posse comitatus, etc. En la mayoría de los casos no hay ningún ejercicio libre en su juicio o en su sentido moral; ellos mismos se ponen a voluntad al nivel de la madera, la tierra, las piedras; y los hombres de madera pueden tal vez ser diseñados para que sirvan bien a un propósito. Tales hombres no merecen más respeto que el hombre de paja o un bulto de tierra. Valen lo mismo que los caballos y los perros. Aunque aún en esta condición, por lo general son estimados como buenos ciudadanos. Otros – como la mayoría de los legisladores, los políticos, abogados, clérigos y oficinistas – sirven al Estado con la cabeza, y como rara vez hacen distinciones morales, están dispuestos, sin proponérselo, a ponerle una vela a Dios y otra al Diablo. Unos pocos, como héroes, patriotas, mártires, reformadores en el gran sentido, y hombres – sirven al Estado a conciencia, y en general le oponen resistencia. Casi siempre son tratados como enemigos. El hombre sabio será útil sólo como hombre, y no aceptará ser “arcilla” o “abrir un hueco para escapar del viento”, sino que dejará ese oficio a sus cenizas.
“Soy nacido muy alto para ser convertido en propiedad,
para ser segundo en el control
o útil servidor e instrumento
de ningún Estado soberano del mundo”.
El que se entrega por completo a sus congéneres les parece a ellos inútil y egoísta; pero aquel que se les entrega parcialmente es considerado benefactor y filántropo.

¿Cómo le conviene a una persona comportarse frente al gobierno americano de hoy? Le respondo que no puede, sin caer en desgracia, ser asociado con éste. Yo no puedo, ni por un instante, reconocer una organización política que como gobierno mío es también gobierno de los esclavos. Todos los hombres reconocen el derecho a la revolución; es decir, el derecho a negarse a la obediencia y poner resistencia al gobierno cuando éste es tirano o su ineficiencia es mayor e insoportable. Pero muchos dicen que ese no es el caso ahora. Pero era el caso, creo, en la Revolución de 1775. Si alguien viene a decirme que aquel era un mal gobierno porque gravaba ciertas mercancías extranjeras que llegaban a sus puertos, seguramente no haría yo mucho caso del asunto, puesto que me basto sin ellas. Toda máquina produce una fricción, y ésta probablemente no es suficiente para contrarrestar el mal. En todo caso, es un gran mal hacer gran bulla al respecto. Pero cuando la fricción se apodera de la máquina y la opresión y el robo se organizan, les digo, no mantengamos tal máquina por más tiempo. En otras palabras, cuando una sexta parte de la población de una nación que ha tomado como propio ser el refugio de la libertad está esclavizada, y todo un país está injustamente subyugado y conquistado por un ejército extranjero y sujeto a la ley militar, no creo que sea demasiado pronto para que los honestos se rebelen y hagan revolución. Lo que hace más urgente esta obligación es que el país así dominado no es el nuestro y lo único que nos queda es el ejército invasor.

Paley, conocida autoridad con muchos otros en asuntos morales, en su capítulo sobre “Obligación a la obediencia al Gobierno Civil”, resuelve toda obligación moral a la conveniencia y continúa diciendo que “en cuanto el interés de toda la sociedad lo requiera, es decir, en cuanto al gobierno establecido no se pueda oponer resistencia o cambiar sin inconveniencia pública, es la voluntad de Dios...que el gobierno establecido sea obedecido...y no más. Al admitir este principio, la justicia de cada caso específico de resistencia se reduce al computo de la cantidad de peligro y afrenta, por un lado, y a la probabilidad y costo de remediarlo, por el otro”. De esto, dice, cada persona juzgará por sí misma. Pero parece que Paley nunca contempló aquellos casos en los que la ley de conveniencia no es aplicable, en los que un pueblo, tanto como un individuo, debe ejercer justicia, cueste lo que cueste. Si injustamente le he arrebatado una tabla a un hombre que se está ahogando, debo devolvérsela aunque yo me ahogue. Esto, según Paley, no sería conveniente. Pero aquel que salve su vida en tal forma, la perderá. Este pueblo tiene que dejar de tener esclavos y de hacerle la guerra a Méjico, aunque le cueste su propia existencia como pueblo.

En sus prácticas, las naciones están de acuerdo con Paley, pero cree alguien que Massachusetts está haciendo lo correcto en la crisis actual?
“Una puta por Estado, recamado de plata,
que le lleven la cola, pero que deja la huella de su alma en la mugre”.
En la práctica, quienes se oponen a una reforma en Massachusetts no son cien políticos del Sur, sino cien mil comerciantes y granjeros del Norte, quienes están más interesados en el comercio y la agricultura que en la humanidad, y no están preparados para hacer justicia a los esclavos y a Méjico, cueste lo que cueste. Yo no lucho con adversarios lejanos, sino en contra de quienes, aquí mismo en casa, cooperan y licitan por los que están lejos, y sin los cuales estos últimos serían inofensivos. Estamos acostumbrados a decir que las masas no están preparadas; pero las mejoras son lentas, porque los pocos no son ni materialmente más sabios ni mejores que los muchos. No es tan importante que muchos sean tan buenos como usted, como que haya alguna bondad absoluta en alguna parte, porque ella será la levadura para todo el conjunto. Hay miles de personas que se oponen a la esclavitud y la guerra, pero sin embargo no hacen nada para terminarlas; hay quienes, considerándose hijos de Washington y Franklin, se sientan con las manos en los bolsillos, y dicen que no saben qué hacer, y no hacen nada; hay quienes, anteponen el asunto del libre comercio al de la libertad y leen muy calmados las cotizaciones junto con los últimos informes sobre Méjico, después de la cena, y hasta se quedan dormidos sobre ellos. ¿Cuál es la cotización para un hombre honesto y patriota hoy? Ellos se lo preguntan, tienen remordimientos y hasta redactan un memorial, pero no hacen nada con convicción y efecto. Esperan, muy bien dispuestos, a que otros le pongan remedio al mal, para que ya no les remuerda. Cuando mucho, depositan un voto barato, con un débil patrocinio y deseo de feliz viaje a lo correcto, en cuanto a ellos respecta. Hay novecientos noventa y nueve patronos de la virtud por un hombre virtuoso. Pero es más fácil negociar con el dueño real de alguna cosa que con su guardián temporal. Toda votación es un tipo de juego como las damas o el backgammon, con un ligero tinte moral, un jueguito entre lo correcto y lo incorrecto con preguntas morales, acompañado, naturalmente, de apuestas. El carácter de los votantes no entra en juego. Deposito mi voto, por si acaso, pues lo creo correcto, pero no estoy comprometido en forma vital con que esa corrección prevalezca. Se lo dejo a la mayoría. La obligación de mi voto, por lo tanto, nunca excede la conveniencia. Aún votar por lo correcto no es hacer nada por ello. Es simplemente expresar bien débilmente ante los demás un deseo de que eso (lo correcto) prevalezca. El hombre sabio no deja el bien a la merced del chance, ni desea que prevalezca por el poder de la mayoría. Hay poca virtud en la acción de las masas. Cuando la mayoría finalmente vote por la abolición de la esclavitud, será porque ya es indiferente a ella, o por que queda poca esclavitud para ser abolida con su voto. Entonces ellos mismos serán los únicos esclavos. Sólo acelera con su voto la abolición de la esclavitud quien afirma por medio de él su propia libertad.

Me entero de una convención a reunirse en Baltimore, o en alguna otra parte, para escoger un candidato a la Presidencia, convención formada principalmente por editores y políticos de profesión; pero me pregunto, ¿qué representa para una persona independiente, inteligente y respetable la decisión que allí se tome? ¿No tenemos, sin embargo, la ventaja de la sabiduría y la honestidad? ¿No contamos con algunos votos independientes? ¿No hay muchas personas en este país que no asisten a convenciones? Pero no: encuentro que el llamado hombre respetable ha sido arrastrado de su posición, y se desespera de su país, cuando su país tiene más razones para desesperarse de él. En el acto, adopta a uno de los candidatos seleccionados, como el único disponible, probando que él mismo está disponible para cualquier propósito del demagogo. Su voto no tiene más valor que el de cualquier extranjero sin principios o nacional a sueldo, que haya sido comprado. ¡Loa al hombre que es hombre!, o, como dice un vecino “es hueso difícil de roer”. Nuestras estadísticas están erradas: la población es presentada exageradamente grande. ¿Cuántos habitantes hay por milla cuadrada en este país? Escasamente uno. Es que los Estados Unidos no ofrecen aliciente para que las gentes se establezcan aquí? El norteamericano ha degenerado en el Tipo Simpático – conocido por el desarrollo de su órgano de sociabilidad, por la falta manifiesta de intelecto y por una seguridad desenfadada, cuya primera y más importante preocupación al llegar a este mundo, es ver que los hospicios estén en buenas condiciones, y antes de que haya estrenado su atuendo viril, empieza a recolectar fondos para sostener a las viudas y huérfanos que puedan aparecer, y quien, en últimas, se aventura a vivir solo de la ayuda de la Mutual de Seguros, que le ha prometido enterrarlo decentemente.

De hecho, no es obligación de un individuo dedicarse a la erradicación del mal, aún del más enorme; bien puede tener otras inquietudes que lo ocupen. Pero es su obligación al menos lavarse las manos de ese mal, y si no le dedica mayor pensamiento, tampoco debe darle su apoyo en la práctica. Si yo me dedico a otras empresas y contemplaciones, debo ante todo ver que no las emprenda montado sobre los hombros de otro. Debo desmontarme primero para que él pueda adelantar sus contemplaciones también. Vean qué gran inconsistencia se tolera. Les he oído decir a algunos de mis paisanos: “Me gustaría que me ordenaran ir a ayudar a extinguir una insurrección de esclavos o a marchar a Méjico, ya vería si voy”. Y, sin embargo, cada uno de ellos ha contribuido, directamente con su obediencia, e indirectamente con su dinero, suministrando un sustituto. El soldado que rehusa servir en una guerra injusta es aplaudido por aquellos que no rehusan sostener al gobierno injusto que hace la guerra; es aplaudido por aquellos cuyos actos y autoridad ese gobierno no tiene en cuenta ni valora en nada. Como si el Estado estuviera tan arrepentido que contratara a uno para que lo azotara mientras peca, pero no para dejar de pecar. Así, bajo el rótulo del Orden y Gobierno Civil se nos hace a todos rendir homenaje y sostener nuestra propia maldad. Después del primer sonrojo de pecado se pasa a la indiferencia y de lo inmoral se llega a lo amoral, lo que resulta necesario para esa vida que nos hemos forjado. El error más amplio y permanente necesita de la más desinteresada virtud para sostenerse. Los nobles son quienes más comúnmente incurren en el ligero reproche que se le hace a la virtud del patriotismo. Aquellos, quienes a la vez que desaprueban el carácter y las medidas de un gobierno, le entregan su respaldo, son sin duda sus más conscientes soportes y con frecuencia el obstáculo más serio a la reforma.

Algunos le están pidiendo al Estado disolver la Unión para desconocer las solicitudes del Presidente. Por qué no la disuelven ellos mismos – la unión entre ellos y el Estado – y se niegan a pagar su cuota al Tesoro? No están ellos en la misma relación con el Estado que éste con la Unión? Y no son las mismas razones que han impedido al Estado oponerse a la Unión las que les impiden a ellos oponerse al Estado? ¿Cómo puede una persona estar satisfecha con sólo mantener una opinión y al mismo tiempo disfrutarlo? ¿Hay alguna satisfacción en ello, si su opinión es la de que está siendo agraviado? Si a usted lo engañan así sea en un solo dólar, usted no queda satisfecho con saber que lo engañaron, con decirlo, ni aún con pedir que se le restituya lo que le pertenece; sino que usted se empeña de manera efectiva en recuperar la suma completa y en ver que no se le vuelva a engañar jamás. La acción por principio, la percepción y el desarrollo de lo correcto, cambian las cosas y las relaciones; es algo esencialmente revolucionario y no concuerda con nada de lo que fue. No solo dividió Estados e Iglesias, divide a las familias; ay!, divide al individuo, separando en él lo diabólico de lo divino.

Existen leyes injustas: ¿debemos estar contentos de cumplirlas, trabajar para enmendarlas, y obedecerlas hasta cuando lo hayamos logrado, o debemos incumplirlas desde el principio? Las personas, bajo un gobierno como el actual, creen por lo general que deben esperar hasta haber convencido a la mayoría para cambiarlas. Creen que si oponen resistencia, el remedio sería peor que la enfermedad. Pero es culpa del gobierno que el remedio sea peor que la enfermedad. Es él quien lo hace peor. ¿ Por qué no está más apto para prever y hacer una reforma? ¿ Por qué no valora a su minoría sabia? ¿Por qué grita y se resiste antes de ser herido? ¿Por qué no estimula a sus ciudadanos a que analicen sus faltas y lo hagan mejor de lo que él lo haría con ellos? ¿Por qué siempre crucifica a Cristo, excomulga a Copérnico y a Lutero y declara rebeldes a Washington y a Franklin? Uno pensaría que una negación deliberada y práctica de su autoridad fue la única ofensa jamás contemplada por su gobierno, o si no, por qué no ha asignado un castigo definitivo, proporcionado y apropiado? Si un hombre que no tiene propiedad se niega sólo una vez a rentar nueve chelines al Estado, es puesto en prisión por un término ilimitado por ley que yo conozca, y confinado a la discreción de aquellos que lo pusieron allí; pero si le roba noventa veces nueve chelines al Estado, es pronto puesto de nuevo en libertad.

Si la injusticia es parte de la fricción necesaria de la máquina del gobierno, vaya y venga, tal vez la fricción se suavice – ciertamente la máquina se desgasta. Si la injusticia tiene un resorte, una polea, un cable, una manivela exclusivamente para sí, quizá usted pueda considerar si el remedio no es peor que la enfermedad; pero si es de tal naturaleza que le exige a usted ser el agente de injusticia para otro, entonces yo le digo, incumpla la ley. Deje que su vida sea la contra fricción que pare la máquina. Lo que tengo que hacer es ver, de cualquier forma, que yo no me presto al mal que condeno. En cuanto a adoptar las maneras que el Estado ha entregado para remediar el mal, yo no sé nada de tales maneras. Toman mucho tiempo, y la vida se habrá acabado para entonces. Tengo otras cosas que hacer. Yo vine a este mundo no propiamente a convertirlo en un buen sitio para vivir, sino a vivir en él, ya sea bueno o malo. Una persona no tiene que hacerlo todo, sino algo; y puesto que no puede hacerlo todo, no es necesario que ande haciendo peticiones al gobernador o al legislador más de lo que ellos me las tienen que hacer a mí. ¿Y si ellos no oyen mi petición, qué tengo que hacer? En este caso el Estado no tiene respuesta: su propia Constitución es el mal. Esto puede parecer fuerte, terco y no conciliatorio, pero es tratar con la mayor amabilidad y consideración al único espíritu que puede agradecerlo o merecerlo. Así que todo es cambio para mejorar, como el nacimiento y la muerte, que convulsionan el cuerpo. No dudo en afirmar que aquellos que se llaman abolicionistas debería retirar inmediatamente su apoyo personal y económico al gobierno de Massachusetts, y no esperar a constituir una mayoría de uno que les otorgue el derecho de prevalecer. Creo que es suficiente con tener a Dios de su lado, sin esperar a ese otro uno. Más aún, cualquier hombre más correcto que sus vecinos constituye de por sí una mayoría de uno.

Yo me entrevisto con el gobierno americano, o su representante, el gobierno del Estado, directamente, cara a cara, una vez al año – nada más – en la persona de su recaudador de impuestos; esta es la única forma en la que una persona de mi posición puede encontrarse con ese Estado. Y entonces él dice bien claro: Reconózcame; y la manera más sencilla, la más efectiva, en el actual curso de los hechos, la manera indispensable de tratar con él en su cara, de expresarle uno su poca satisfacción y poco amor por él es negarlo. Mi vecino civil, el recaudador, es el hombre de carne y hueso con quien tengo que tratar – porque, después de todo, es con hombres y no con papeles con quienes yo peleo, y él ha escogido voluntariamente ser un agente del gobierno. ¿Cómo hará para saber bien lo que él es y lo que tiene que hacer como funcionario del gobierno, o como hombre, cuando se vea obligado a considerar si a mí – su vecino - a quien respeta como buen vecino - me trata como tal, o como a un loco que altera la paz, e igualmente resolver cómo puede sobreponerse a esa obstrucción a la buena voluntad, sin que lo asalten pensamientos más rudos y contundentes, o sin adoptar un vocabulario acorde con su acción? Yo sí lo sé muy bien: si mil, o cien o diez hombres – a quienes puedo nombrar – si sólo diez hombres honestos – alás! si un hombre HONESTO, en este Estado de Massachusetts, dejara de tener esclavos, realmente se retirara de esa cosociedad y fuera encerrado por ello en la cárcel del Condado, eso sería la abolición de la esclavitud en América. Porque lo que importa no es qué tan pequeño pueda ser el comienzo: lo que se hace una vez bien, se hace para siempre. Pero preferimos hablar de ello: a lo que digamos, reducimos nuestra misión. La reforma cuenta con muchos informes periodísticos a su servicio, pero ni con un solo hombre.

Si mi estimado vecino, el embajador del Estado, que dedicará sus días a tratar el asunto de los derechos humanos en la Cámara del Consejo, en vez de ser amenazado con las prisiones de Carolina, fuera a sentarse como prisionero de Massachusetts, ese Estado que está tan ansioso por endilgarle el pecado de la esclavitud a su hermana, aunque hasta el momento solo se ha basado en un acto de inhospitalidad para pelear con ella, no desestimaría considerar el tema en la legislatura del próximo invierno.

Bajo un gobierno que encarcela injustamente, el verdadero lugar para un hombre justo está en la cárcel. El lugar apropiado hoy, el único sitio que Massachusetts ha provisto para sus espíritus más libres y menos desalentados está en sus prisiones: está en ser encerrados y excluidos del Estado por acción de éste, así como ellos mismos se han puesto fuera de él, movidos por sus propios principios. Es allí donde los deben encontrar el esclavo fugitivo, el prisionero mejicano puesto en libertad bajo palabra y el indio que vino a interceder por las faltas imputadas a su raza. Es allí, en ese suelo separado, pero más libre y honorable, donde el Estado coloca a los que no están con él, sino en su contra, donde el hombre libre puede habitar con honor. Si alguien piensa que su influjo se pierde allí, y que su voz ya no llega al oído del Estado, que él mismo no es visto como el enemigo dentro de sus muros, no sabe qué tanto la verdad es más fuerte que el error, ni qué tanto puede elocuente y efectivamente combatir la injusticia quien la ha experimentado en su propia persona. Deposite su voto completo, no sólo una tira de papel, sino todo su influjo. Una minoría es impotente, ni siquiera es una minoría, mientras se amolde a las mayorías; pero se vuelve insostenible cuando obstaculiza con todo su peso. Si la alternativa es mantener a todos los justos presos o renunciar a la esclavitud y la guerra, el Estado no dudará en escoger. Si mil ciudadanos no pagaran sus impuestos este año, esa no sería una medida violenta y sangrienta, como sí lo sería pagarlos, habilitando al Estado para que ejerza violencia y derrame sangre inocente. Esta es, de hecho, la definición de una revolución pacífica, si es que tal revolución es posible. Si el recaudador, o cualquier otro funcionario – como ya ha sucedido - me pregunta: “y entonces qué hago? ”, mi respuesta es: “si usted de verdad quiere hacer algo, renuncie al puesto”. Cuando el súbdito se ha negado a someterse y el funcionario renuncia a su cargo, la revolución se ha logrado. ¿Y no hay también derramamiento de sangre cuando se hiere la conciencia? Por esta sangre brotan la hombría y la inmortalidad de un ser humano y esa sangre fluye hacia una muerte eterna. Veo esa sangre fluyendo ahora.

Hasta ahora, he considerado el encarcelamiento del transgresor más que la confiscación de sus bienes – aunque ambos sirven el mismo propósito – porque aquellos que se sostienen en la corrección más pura, y en consecuencia son más peligrosos para el Estado corrupto, generalmente no han dedicado mucho tiempo a acumular propiedades. A ellos, el Estado comparativamente les presta poco servicio, y un pequeño impuesto es costumbre que parezca exorbitante, particularmente si se les obliga a pagarlo con trabajo de sus propias manos. Si hubiese alguien que viviera completamente sin el uso del dinero, el Estado mismo dudaría en exigírselo. Pero el rico – sin hacer comparaciones odiosas – está siempre vendido a la institución que lo hace rico. En estricto sentido, a más dinero menos virtud, porque el dinero se interpone entre la persona y sus objetivos y los obtiene para él; ciertamente, no fue gran virtud obtenerlo. El dinero pone de lado muchas preguntas que de otra manera la persona se vería obligada a responder, mientras que la nueva pregunta es difícil pero superflua: cómo gastarlo! Así, le han quitado a la persona su piso moral. Las oportunidades de vivir se disminuyen en proporción al aumento de los llamados “medios de subsistencia”. Lo mejor que una persona puede hacer por su cultura cuando es rica, es realizar los esquemas que se propuso cuando era pobre. Cristo respondía a los súbditos de Heródes según su condición. “Mostradme vuestro dinero del tributo”, les decía, y uno sacó un centavo del bolsillo, “si usáis dinero acuñado con la imagen del César, y que él ha hecho corriente y valioso, es decir, sois un hombre del Estado y disfrutáis a gusto de las ventajas del gobierno del César, entonces retribuid con algo de lo que le pertenece cuando él os lo pide. Dad al César lo que es del César y a Dios lo que es de Dios”, y no los dejaba más sabios en cuanto cuál era para cuál, porque ellos no querían saber.

Cuando yo converso con el más libre de mis vecinos, me doy cuenta de que cualquier cosa que mi interlocutor diga sobre la magnitud y seriedad de un asunto, lo mismo que su preocupación por la tranquilidad pública, me la presenta sujeta a la protección del Gobierno vigente y más bien se espanta de las consecuencias que la desobediencia les pueda acarrear a su propiedad y a sus familias. Por mi parte, no quiero ni pensar que alguna vez dependa de la protección del Estado. Pero si yo niego la autoridad del Estado cuando éste me presenta la cuenta de los impuestos, pronto se llevarán y gastarán mis propiedades y me acosarán a mí y a mis hijos indefinidamente. Esto es doloroso. Esto hace imposible a la persona vivir honestamente y al tiempo con comodidad en lo que a exterioridades respecta. No vale la pena acumular propiedades que de seguro se volverán a ir. Hay que alquilar o invadir cualquier predio, cultivar una pequeña cosecha y comérsela pronto. Hay que vivir dentro de sí mismo y depender de uno mismo, siempre arremangado y listo a arrancar, sin tener muchos asuntos pendientes. Un hombre puede volverse rico en Turquía, si es en todo aspecto un buen súbdito del gobierno turco. Confucio dijo: “Si un Estado es gobernado por los principios de la razón, la pobreza y la miseria son objeto de vergüenza; si el Estado no es gobernado por los principios de la razón, la riqueza y los honores son objeto de vergüenza”. No: hasta cuando se me extienda la protección de Massachusetts hasta un puerto en el Sur, donde mi libertad esté en peligro, o hasta cuando me dedique a aumentar mi patrimonio aquí con industriosidad pacífica, me puedo dar el lujo de rehusar la sumisión a Massachusetts, y a su derecho sobre mi propiedad y mi vida. En todo caso, me sale más barato sufrir el castigo por desobediencia al Estado que obedecer. Me sentiría que yo mismo valdría menos.

Hace unos años, el Estado me llamó a favor de la Iglesia y me conminó a pagar una suma para el mantenimiento de un clérigo, cuyos sermones mi padre escuchaba, pero yo no. “Pague”, se me dijo, “o será encerrado en la cárcel”. Yo me negué a pagar. Desagraciadamente, otra persona consideró apropiado hacerlo por mí. Yo no entendía por qué el maestro de escuela tenía que pagar impuesto para sostener al cura, y no el cura para sostener al maestro, así yo no fuera maestro del Estado, sino que me sostenía por suscripción propia. Yo no veía por qué el Liceo no podía presentar su cuenta de impuestos y hacer que el Estado respaldara su petición lo mismo que la de la Iglesia. Sin embargo, a petición de los Concejales, fui condescendiente como para hacer la siguiente declaración por escrito: “Sírvanse enterarse de que yo, Henry Thoreau, no deseo ser considerado miembro de ninguna sociedad a la cual yo mismo no me haya unido”. El Estado, habiéndose enterado de que yo no quería ser considerado miembro de esa iglesia, nunca me ha vuelto a hacer tal exigencia, aunque decía que tenía que acogerse a su presunción en ese momento. Si hubiese sabido los nombres, me habría retirado de todas las sociedades a las que nunca me inscribí, pero no supe dónde encontrar la lista completa.

Hace seis años que no pago el impuesto de empadronamiento. Me apresaron una vez por eso, por una noche. Y mientras meditaba sobre el grosor de los muros de piedra, de dos o tres pies de ancho, de la puerta de madera y hierro de un pie de espesor, y de las rejas de hierro por las que se colaba la luz, no pude evitar aterrarme de la tontería de aquella institución que me trataba como si yo no fuera más sino carne, sangre y huesos que encerrar. Concluí finalmente que ésta era la mayor utilidad que el Estado podía sacar de mí y que nunca pensó en beneficiarse de alguna manera con mis servicios. Pensé que si había un muro de piedra entre mis conciudadanos y yo, había uno mucho más difícil de trepar o atravesar antes de que ellos pudieran llegar a ser tan libres como yo. Nunca me sentí encerrado, y los muros semejaban un gran desperdicio de piedra y argamasa. Sentí que yo era el único de mis conciudadanos que había pagado el impuesto. Ciertamente no sabían cómo tratarme; pero se comportaban como tipos maleducados. En cada amenaza y en cada lisonja se pifiaban, porque creían que lo que yo más quería era estar del otro lado del muro. Yo no podía sino sonreír de ver con qué laboriosidad cerraban la puerta a mis meditaciones, lo que los dejaba de nuevo sin oposición ni obstáculo, y esas meditaciones eran realmente lo único peligroso que allí había. Como no me podían atrapar, resolvieron castigar mi cuerpo, como niños, que si no pueden llegar a la persona a la que tienen tirria, le maltratan el perro. Observé que el Estado era ingenioso sólo a medias, que era tímido. Como una viuda en medio de su platería, y que no diferenciaba sus amigos de sus enemigos, y así perdí lo que me quedaba de respeto por él y le tuve lástima.

El Estado, pues, nunca confronta a conciencia la razón de una persona, intelectual o moralmente, sino sólo su cuerpo, sus sentidos. No está equipado con un ingenio superior o una honestidad superior, sino con fuerza superior. Yo no nací para ser forzado. Respiro a mi manera. Ya veremos quien es el más fuerte. ¿Qué fuerza tiene una multitud? Sólo me pueden forzar los que obedecen una ley más alta que yo. Quieren forzarme a que me vuelva como ellos. No escucho a quienes han sido forzados por las masas a vivir así o asá. ¿Qué vida es ésa? Cuando un gobierno me dice, “la bolsa o la vida”, por qué tengo que correr a darle mi plata? Pueden estar en apuros y no saber qué hacer: lo siento mucho. Ellos verán qué hacen. Que hagan como yo. No vale la pena lloriquear por eso. Yo no soy responsable de que la maquinaria de la sociedad funcione. No soy hijo del ingeniero. Sólo veo que cuando una bellota y una castaña caen juntas, la una no se queda inerte para hacerle campo a la otra, ambas obedecen sus propias leyes y germinan y crecen y florecen lo mejor que pueden, hasta que una, quizás, eclipsa y destruye a la otra. Si una planta no puede vivir de acuerdo a la naturaleza, se muere; lo mismo el hombre.

La noche en la prisión fue novedosa e interesante. Cuando entré, los prisioneros, en mangas de camisa, gozaban de una charla y del aire de la noche. Pero el carcelero dijo: “Vamos muchachos, es hora de encerrarlos”, entonces se dispersaron, y oí el ruido de sus pasos de regreso a la vacuidad de sus compartimentos. El carcelero me presentó a mi compañero como “un tipo de primera y un hombre inteligente”. Cuando cerraron la puerta, me indicó dónde colgar mi sombrero y me contó cómo arreglaba sus asuntos allí. Los cuartos eran blanqueados una vez al mes, y éste, al menos, era el más blanco; el amoblado de forma muy sencilla y seguramente el más pulcro del pueblo. Naturalmente quería saber de dónde venía yo, qué me había traído. Cuando le hube contado, yo también le pregunté por qué estaba allí, bajo la presunción de que era un hombre honesto, y claro que lo era. “Bien”, dijo, “me acusan de quemar un granero, pero nunca lo hice”. Por lo que pude descubrir, él probablemente se había acostado borracho, fumando pipa, y el granero se incendió. Gozaba de la reputación de ser inteligente; había estado allí cerca de tres meses esperando el juicio, y tendría que esperar otro tanto, pero estaba domesticado y contento, puesto que recibía alimentación gratis y se consideraba bien tratado. Él miraba por una ventana y yo por la otra. Observé que si uno se quedaba allí por largo tiempo su actividad central se reducía a mirar por la ventana. Pronto leí todas las huellas que allí quedaban y examiné por donde se habían escapado los antiguos prisioneros, donde habían segueteado una reja y oí la historia de varios inquilinos de aquella celda; descubrí que aún allí había historias y habladurías que nunca circulaban más allá de los muros de la prisión. Seguramente ésta es la única casa del pueblo donde se escriben versos, que luego se imprimen en hojas que no se publican. Pude ver una larga lista de jóvenes que habían intentado escapar, quienes se vengaron cantando sus versos.

Yo le sonsaqué a mi compañero todo lo que pude, movido por el temor de no volver a verlo; luego me indicó cuál era mi cama y me dejó apagar la vela.

Tendido allí por una noche fue como viajar a un país remoto que nunca había esperado visitar. Me pareció que no había escuchado antes el llamado de las campanas del reloj del pueblo ni el sonido nocturno de la aldea, puesto que dormíamos con las ventanas abiertas, que daban a la parte interna de las rejas. Fue ver mi pueblo natal a la luz del Medioevo y nuestro Concord convertido en un Rin, que pasaba con sus caballos y castillos. Oí las voces de antiguos burgueses por las calles. Fui el espectador y oyente involuntario de todo lo dicho y hecho en la posada vecina: una nueva y extraña experiencia. Fue una visión más cercana de mi pueblo. Me metí dentro. Nunca antes había visto sus instituciones. Ésta es una de sus instituciones características porque éste es un Condado. Empecé a comprender lo que son sus habitantes.

Por la mañana, nos pasaron el desayuno por un hueco de la puerta por donde cabían jarros de lata y una cuchara metálica. Cuando vinieron por los platos, fui tan bisoño como para devolver el pan que había dejado, pero mi camarada lo agarró y dijo que debía reservarlo para el almuerzo o la comida. Pronto lo dejaron salir a segar heno en un campo vecino, a donde iba todos los días sin regresar hasta el medio día; así que me dijo adiós y que dudaba de que me volviera a ver.

Cuando salí de prisión – porque alguien se atravesó y pagó el impuesto – no percibí que hubiera habido grandes cambios en el exterior, como los que encuentra el que entra joven y sale viejo; y sin embargo, un cambio se presentó ante mis ojos – el pueblo, el Estado, el país eran más grandes de lo que el mero tiempo podía afectarlos. Vi más claro el Estado en el que vivía. Vi hasta qué punto se podía tener como buenos amigos y vecinos a las personas entre quienes había vivido. Su amistad era ante todo para los buenos tiempos. Vi que básicamente no se proponían hacer el bien, que eran de otra raza distinta a la mía por sus prejuicios y supersticiones . Como los chinos y los malayos, que en sus sacrificios por la humanidad no se arriesgan ni siquiera en sus propiedades. Vi que, después de todo, no eran tan nobles, sino que trataban al ladrón como éste los había tratado, y confiaban que por cierto cumplimiento externo y algunas oraciones, y por seguir una senda particularmente derecha e inútil salvarían sus almas. Puede que esto sea juzgarlos un tanto duro, pero muchos de ellos ni siquiera son conscientes de que en su pueblo exista una institución como la cárcel.

Una antigua costumbre del pueblo, cuando el deudor pobre salía de la cárcel, era ir a saludarlo, mirándolo por entre los dedos, que representaban los barrotes de la cárcel; “¿Cómo le va?”. Mis vecinos no me dieron ese saludo; sólo me miraban y luego se miraban, como si yo hubiera vuelto de un largo viaje. A mí me tomaron prisionero mientras iba donde el zapatero a recoger un zapato remontado. Cuando me soltaron por la mañana procedí a terminar el mandado y después de ponerme el zapato me uní a un grupo de recogedores de arándano, que se mostraron impacientes por ponerse bajo mi conducción. El caballo pronto fue bien cargado y en media hora estuvimos en medio de un campo de arándanos en lo alto de una colina, a dos millas de distancia, y el Estado ya no se veía por ninguna parte.

Esta es la historia completa de “Mis Prisiones”.

Nunca me he negado a pagar el impuesto de rodamiento, porque quiero ser tan buen vecino como mal súbdito, y en cuanto a subvencionar escuelas, aquí estoy dando mi contribución para educar a mis compatriotas. No es por un punto en especial de la cuenta de impuestos que me niego a pagarla. Simplemente deseo rehusar la sumisión al Estado, retirarme y permanecer retirado de manera efectiva. No me interesa seguirle la pista a mi dólar, si puedo, hasta que ese dólar le compre un rifle a un hombre para que le dispare a otro – el dólar es inocente – pero sí me interesa seguirle la pista a los efectos de mi sumisión.

De hecho, le declaro la guerra al Estado, a mi manera, aunque lo utilice y me aproveche de él en cuanto pueda, como es usual en tales casos.

Si otros, por simpatía con el Estado, pagan el impuesto que a mí me piden, hacen lo mismo que cuando pagaron el suyo, es decir, apoyan la injusticia más de lo que el Estado les exige. Si pagan el impuesto por una solidaridad equivocada con la persona a la que se le ha cobrado, para salvarle sus propiedades o evitarle que termine en la cárcel, es porque no han medido con inteligencia hasta dónde dejan interferir sus sentimientos personales con el bien público.

Esta es mi posición en el momento. Pero uno no puede estar demasiado a la defensiva en este caso, no sea que sus acciones se parcialicen por la obstinación o la demasiada preocupación por la opinión de los demás. Hay que dejar a cada quien hacer sólo lo que le pertenece a él y a su momento.

A vece me digo, bueno, esta gente es bien intencionada, sólo son ignorantes, obrarían mejor si supieran cómo: Por qué poner a los vecinos en la dificultad de tratarlo a uno en una forma en que no están inclinados a hacerlo? Pero recapacito: esa no es razón para que yo actúe como ellos o permita que otros sufran un dolor mayor y diferente. Y luego, vuelvo y me digo, cuando millones de hombres, sin agresividad, sin mala intención, sin sentimientos personales de ningún tipo, piden solo unas monedas, sin la posibilidad, tal es su manera de ser, de retractarse o alterar su exigencia, y sin la posibilidad, por parte de quien recibe la petición, de apelar a otros millones de personas, por qué exponerse a esta fuerza bruta sobrecogedora? No nos oponemos al frío y al hambre, a los vientos y a las olas con tanta obstinación. Nos entregamos sumisos a mil necesidades similares. Usted no pone las manos al fuego. Pero también en la medida en que yo no veo esto como una fuerza bruta total sino como una fuerza humana en parte, y considero que yo tengo que ver con esos millones como lo tengo con millones de hombres, y no como brutos o cosas inanimadas, veo que esa apelación es posible, en primer lugar y de forma instantánea, de ellos a su Creador y, en segundo lugar, de ellos a sí mismos. Pero si deliberadamente pongo las manos al fuego, no hay apelación al fuego, ni al Creador del fuego, y sólo yo tengo que culparme por ello. Si pudiera convencerme de que tengo algún derecho a estar satisfecho con los hombres como son, y tratarlos de acuerdo a eso, y no según mis expectativas y exigencias de lo que ellos y yo debemos ser, entonces, como un musulmán y fatalista, trabajaría por conformarme con las cosas tal y como están, y con decir que eso es la voluntad de Dios. Y, sobre todo, está la diferencia entre oponerse a esto o a una fuerza bruta y natural, y es que yo puedo oponerme a esto con algún efecto, pero no puedo esperar como Orfeo cambiar la naturaleza de las rocas, los árboles o las bestias.

No deseo pelear con ningún hombre o nación. No quiero pararme en pelos, hacer diferencias sutiles, o creerme mejor que los demás. Hasta busco, podría decir, casi una excusa para ajustarme a las leyes de la tierra. Estoy más que listo para amoldarme a ellas. Ciertamente tengo razones para catalogarme de este modo; y cada año, cuando el recaudador llega, estoy dispuesto a revisar las actas y la posición de los gobiernos nacional y federal, y el espíritu de la gente para aceptar el conformismo.
“Tenemos que querer a nuestro país como a nuestros padres. Debemos respetar los efectos y enseñar al alma asuntos de conciencia y religión, y no el deseo de dominio o beneficio”.
Creo que el Estado pronto podrá quitarme esta carga de encima y entonces ya no seré mejor patriota que mis conciudadanos. Vista desde un mirador más bajo, la Constitución, con todas sus faltas, es muy buena; la ley y las Cortes muy respetables; aún este Estado y este gobierno americano son, en muchos aspectos admirables; y hay algunas cosas, que tantos otros han descrito, por las que agradecer; pero analizadas desde una perspectiva superior y aún desde la más alta, ¿quién dice lo que son o que vale la pena considerarlas o siquiera pensarlas?

Con todo, el gobierno no me preocupa mucho, y pienso en él lo menos que puedo. No es mucho el tiempo que vivo bajo el gobierno, aún en este mundo. Si un hombre piensa libremente, sueña, imagina libremente, nunca estará por mucho tiempo de acuerdo con lo que no es como con lo que es, así que no puede ser interrumpido por gobernantes o reformadores obtusos.

Sé que muchas personas no piensan como yo, pero aquellos cuyas vidas, por obra de su profesión, están dedicadas al estudio de materias afines no me satisfacen casi en nada. Estadistas y legisladores, que están siempre de acuerdo dentro de la institución, nunca la ven clara y desnuda. Hablan de la sociedad en movimiento, pero no tienen lugar de descanso sin ella. Pueden ser hombres de cierta experiencia y discernimiento, y sin duda han inventado sistemas ingeniosos y útiles, que les agradecemos, pero todo su ingenio y utilidad reposa en límites estrechos. Olvidan que el mundo no está gobernado por los programas y la ventaja personal. Webster nunca se le enfrenta al gobierno, así que no puede hablar de él con autoridad. Sus palabras son sabiduría para aquellos legisladores que no contemplan reformas esenciales en el gobierno actual; pero para los pensadores y para aquellos que legislan para todo tiempo, Webster no acierta una. Conozco a aquellos cuya serena y sabia especulación sobre este tema pronto les hará ver la estrechez del pensamiento y el pupilaje de Webster.

Con todo, comparado con los ordinarios alcances de muchos reformadores, y la aún más ordinaria sabiduría y elocuencia de los políticos en general, las de Webster son las casi únicas palabras razonables y valiosas, y le agradecemos al Cielo por él. Comparativamente, es siempre fuerte, original y sobre todo, práctico. Sin embargo, su cualidad no es la sabiduría sino la prudencia. La verdad de los abogados no es la Verdad, sino la consistencia o una conveniencia consistente. La Verdad está siempre en armonía consigo misma y no está interesada en revelar la justicia que pueda concordar con el mal obrar. Webster merece ser llamado, como lo ha sido, el Defensor de la Constitución. No se le pueden dar otros golpes distintos a los defensivos. No es un líder sino un seguidor. Sus líderes son los hombres de 1787. “Yo nunca he hecho un esfuerzo”, dice, “y nunca propongo hacer un esfuerzo, nunca he apoyado un esfuerzo y no tengo intención de apoyarlo para interferir el acuerdo inicial por el cual los diversos estados formaron la Unión”, y respecto de la aprobación que la Constitución otorgó a la esclavitud: “Puesto que era parte del paquete inicial...déjenla ahí”. A pesar de su agudeza y capacidad, Webster es incapaz de aislar un hecho de sus meras relaciones políticas, y verlo como se le presenta al intelecto – por ejemplo, qué incumbe a un hombre hacer aquí en América hoy respecto de la esclavitud – sino que se aventura, o es llevado a dar una respuesta desesperada a lo siguiente, pretendiendo hablar de forma absoluta y como individuo particular – de lo cual qué nuevo y singular se puede sacar a favor de la obligación social? “La forma”, dice, “ como los gobiernos de los Estados donde existe la esclavitud la regulen, está a su propia consideración, bajo la responsabilidad de sus constituyentes, según las leyes generales de la propiedad, humanidad y justicia y según Dios. Las asociaciones formadas en otra parte, salidas de sentimientos humanitarios, o por cualquier otra causa, no tienen nada que ver con ello. Nunca han recibido motivación de parte mía, y nunca la tendrán.” (Estos apartes han sido insertados, puesto que la conferencia fue leída. H.D.T.)

Aquellos que no conocen una fuente más pura de verdad, que no han buscado el manantial más arriba, se apoyan, y lo hacen sabiamente, en la Biblia y en la Constitución, y beben de ellas con reverencia y humanidad; pero aquellos que observan de donde esa verdad vierte gota a gota a este lago o a aquel estanque se amarran los calzones y siguen su peregrinaje hacia el nacedero.

No ha aparecido en América el genio legislador. Son raros en la historia del mundo. Hay oradores, políticos, y hombres elocuentes por miles; pero aún no ha abierto la boca el que tiene que formular las preguntas más molestas. Nos gusta la elocuencia en sí misma y no por la verdad que contenga o por cualquier acto heroico que inspire. Nuestros legisladores no han aprendido todavía el valor comparativo del libre cambio y la libertad, la unión y la rectitud hacia la nación. No tienen genio ni talento para hacerse preguntas humildes sobre impuestos y finanzas, comercio, manufactura y agricultura. Si se nos dejara sólo a la ingeniosa oratoria de nuestros legisladores del Congreso para guiarnos, sin la corrección de la experiencia niveladora y las quejas efectivas del pueblo, América no podría mantener su rango entre las naciones. Mil ochocientos años, aunque quizás yo no tenga derecho a decirlo, lleva escrito el Nuevo Testamento; y sin embargo, dónde está el legislador que tiene la sabiduría y el talento práctico para valerse de la luz que aquel irradia sobre la ciencia de la legislación.

La autoridad del gobierno – porque yo gustosamente obedeceré a aquellos que pueden actuar mejor que yo, y en muchas cosas hasta a aquellos que ni saben ni pueden actuar tan bien – es una autoridad impura: porque para ser estrictamente justa tiene que ser aprobada por el gobernado. No puede tener derecho absoluto sobre mi persona y propiedad sino en cuanto yo se lo conceda. El paso de la monarquía absoluta a una limitada, de la monarquía limitada a la democracia, es el progreso hacia el verdadero respeto al individuo. Hasta el filósofo chino fue lo suficientemente sabio para ver en el individuo la base del imperio. ¿Es la democracia que conocemos la última mejora posible de gobierno? ¿No es posible adelantar un paso en el reconocimiento y la organización de los derechos del hombre? Jamás existirá un Estado realmente libre e iluminado hasta cuando ese Estado reconozca al individuo como un poder más alto e independiente, del cual se deriva su propio poder y autoridad y lo trate de acuerdo a ello. Me complace imaginar un Estado que finalmente pueda darse el lujo de ser justo con todos, y que trate al individuo con respecto; más aún, que no llegue a pensar que es inconsistente con su propia tranquilidad si unos cuantos viven separados de él, no mezclándose con él, sin abrazarlo, pero cumpliendo con su obligación de vecinos y compañeros. Un Estado que produjera este fruto y lo entregase tan pronto estuviese maduro abriría el camino para otro Estado, aún más perfecto y glorioso, que yo he soñado también, pero que aún no he visto por ninguna parte.

http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

Note: Very bad for many (most) species but there are a few species which don't like oxygen, so this is a huge boon for them, in particular the ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that produce hydrogen sulfide. I'm sure they're doing just fine...

Quote: "Witness account of the Ethiopian airlines that crashed Sunday killing 157 people on board says the plane came down in flames before it exploded after hitting the ground. It has also been reported that the pilot made a distress call and had been cleared to return at Bole International airport."

Quote: "The Ethiopian plane was new, delivered to the airline in November. The Boeing 737 Max 8 was one of 30 meant for the airline, Boeing said in July. The jet’s last maintenance was on Feb. 4, and it had flown just 1,200 hours. The plane crashed six minutes after departure, plowing into the ground at Hejere near Bishoftu, or Debre Zeit, some 31 miles outside Addis Ababa, at 8:44 a.m. There was no immediate indication why the plane went down in clear weather while on a flight to Nairobi, the capital of neighboring Kenya."

Quote: "Hours after a boat with 20 persons aboard caught afire off the mouth of the Waini River, the body of a Venezuelan man washed up on Shell Beach, sources said. The man’s name has been given as Antonio Ramon Wells. Police have already confirmed that a woman, with second degree burns, was rushed to the Mabaruma Hospital. She was due to be the air-dashed to the Georgetown Public Hospital for specialised treatment and care at the Burns Unit. The Guyana Police Force’s Interior Commander, Kevin Adonis earlier Sunday said police were responding to reports that flames engulfed a passenger boat about 10 miles from the mouth of the Waini River. The boat was ferrying passengers from Venezuela to Pomeroon in Guyana when the craft caught afire."

Quote: "Reports indicate that the elderly, Mrs. Archer lives in Venezuela and was travelling with her husband, Carl Archer, who is blind, when the mishap occurred. She has reportedly said she was holding onto her husband, but was forced to release him. Her last sight of her spouse was seeing 'his head on fire.'"

http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

The 2018 Baltimore Orioles were so bad that we questioned whether they belonged in the major leagues at all. They were our runaway pick for worst pro team of the year, going far beyond the many wannabe Astros and Cubs who’ve jumped on the tanking fad in recent seasons. Amazingly, things might get even worse this year. Since the middle of last season, Baltimore has traded away established veterans Manny Machado, Jonathan Schoop, Zach Britton, Kevin Gausman, Darren O’Day and Brad Brach, and watched as others such as Tim Beckham, Caleb Joseph and Adam Jones departed in free agency as well. Now there are only three remaining members of the Orioles’ lineup with even two years of MLB service time heading into 2019: Jonathan Villar, Trey Mancini — both average players at best — and Chris Davis, who had arguably the worst individual season in MLB history in 2018 when he hit .168 (in 470 at-bats!) with a .539 on-base plus slugging and -2.9 wins above replacement (WAR).1 Davis’ untradeable contract means the Orioles are stuck with him, so they’ll pencil his name in on opening day no matter how bad he was last season. And those are the guys in the starting lineup who can be remotely labeled as household names. The rest is filled out with either youngish players who are past “prospect” status or journeymen plucked off the scrap heap. Taken as a whole, the 2019 Orioles’ roster basically recalls this scene from “Major League”

          NASA Merilis Foto Penampakan Dua Galaksi yang Bertabrakan      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, California - NASA mengatakan bahwa sepasang galaksi dilaporkan telah bertabrakan dan menyatu. Temuan ini diabadikan melalui sebuah gambar yang baru dirilis dari Hubble Space Telescope.

Ketika 'pertempuran' hebat tersebut pertama kali ditemukan pada tahun 1784 oleh astronom William Herschel, ia mengira itu hanyalah satu galaksi besar dengan bentuk bulat tidak normal.

Kini, publik bisa tahu bahwa NGC 6052 sebenarnya adalah dua galaksi yang sedang berada pada tahap akhir penggabungan, sangat padat sehingga tepi keduanya --yang berbeda-- telah memudar.

Saat jarak mereka kian dekat, bintang-bintang individual yang berada di dalam masing-masing galaksi akan dikeluarkan dari orbit aslinya dan ditempatkan ke jalur yang baru.

Dua galaksi bertabrakan. Momen ini direkam oleh teleskop angkasa luar Hubble milik NASA. (Adamo et al., ESA/NASA)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Gambar di atas diambil oleh teleskop Hubble milik NASA dengan menggunakan Wide Field dan Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) versi lawas.

Ini mungkin terdengar seperti bencana yang mengerikan, tetapi karena galaksi sebagian besar merupakan ruang kosong, maka tabrakan antar bintang sangat sedikit dan jarang terjadi.

"Sejak bintang-bintang menghasilkan cahaya yang bisa kita lihat, galaksi gabungan itu sekarang tampaknya memiliki bentuk yang sangat kacau," jelas Badan Antariksa Eropa (ESA) sebagaimana dikutip dari Science Alert, Rabu (13/3/2019).

"Akhirnya, galaksi baru ini akan mengendap menjadi bentuk yang stabil, yang mungkin tidak menyerupai salah satu dari dua galaksi aslinya," lanjut ESA.

Galaksi kita sendiri, Bimasakti, pada suatu hari akan mengalami nasib serupa dengan tetangganya, galaksi Andromeda. Tapi untungnya, tubrukan yang terjadi tidak begitu dekat. Para ilmuwan mengklaim, tabrakan keduanya setidaknya berlangsung empat miliar tahun lagi.

Ilmuwan Kuak Misteri Tabrakan Galaksi Bimasakti dan Andromeda, Kapan Terjadi?

Ilustrasi Andromeda dan Galaksi Bima Sakti di langit malam (NASA)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Sementara itu, kiamat bagi galaksi kita, Bimasakti, mungkin 'tertunda'. Setidaknya itu yang disimpulkan dari perhitungan para ilmuwan. 

Sebuah studi baru menunjukkan bahwa tabrakan dahsyat yang diprediksi terjadi antara Bimasakti dan galaksi berbentuk spiral, Andromeda, akan terjadi sekitar 4,5 miliar tahun dari sekarang, menurut pengamatan yang dilakukan oleh pesawat ruang angkasa Eropa, Gaia.

Beberapa penelitian sebelumnya memperkirakan, tabrakan itu akan terjadi lebih cepat, dalam waktu sekitar 3,9 miliar tahun. Namun dugaan ini kemungkinan besar meleset.

"Temuan ini sangat penting untuk pemahaman kita tentang bagaimana galaksi, rupanya, berevolusi dan berinteraksi," kata ilmuwan proyek Gaia, Timo Prusti, yang tidak terlibat dalam penelitian ini, dalam sebuah pernyataan, seperti dikutip dari Live Science, Selasa 12 Februari 2019.

Gaia diluncurkan pada Desember 2013 untuk membantu para ilmuwan membuat peta tiga dimensi (3D) lain dari Bimasakti. Pesawat ruang angkasa ini telah memantau posisi dan pergerakan sejumlah besar bintang dan objek kosmik lainnya secara tepat.

Sementara itu, tim misi tersebut sudah melacak lebih dari 1 miliar bintang sebelum Gaia tak lagi berfungsi untuk selamanya.

Sebagian besar bintang yang Gaia amati berada di Bimasakti, tetapi beberapa di antaranya terletak di galaksi terdekatnya.

Dalam riset baru, para peneliti menemukan sejumlah bintang di galaksi Bimasakti, di Andromeda (juga dikenal sebagai M31) dan di dalam spiral Triangulum (atau M33). Ketiga galaksi yang saling bertetangga ini berada dalam jarak 2,5 juta hingga 3 juta tahun cahaya dari Bimasakti dan dapat berinteraksi satu sama lain.

"Kami perlu mengeksplorasi gerakan galaksi dalam 3D untuk mengungkap bagaimana mereka tumbuh dan berevolusi, serta apa yang menciptakan, memengaruhi fitur dan perilaku mereka," kata penulis utama penelitian, Roeland van der Marel, dari Space Telescope Science Institute di Baltimore.

"Kami dapat melakukannya menggunakan paket data kedua berkualitas tinggi, yang dirilis oleh Gaia," tambah van der Marel, merujuk pada tangkapan yang dirilis pada April 2018.

Pekerjaan ini memungkinkan tim riset untuk menentukan tingkat rotasi M31 dan M33 -- sesuatu yang belum pernah dilakukan sebelumnya, kata para peneliti.

Dengan memanfaatkan temuan yang diperoleh oleh Gaia dan analisis informasi arsip, tim kemudian memetakan gerakan dari M31 dan M33 yang berjalan melalui ruang angkasa di masa lalu dan ke mana keduanya akan pergi selama beberapa miliar tahun ke depan.

Model-model tersebut memberikan penanggalan yang lebih lambat dari perkiraan semula --terkait tabrakan Andromeda dan Bimasakti.

Karena jarak antar bintang begitu besar, kemungkinan tata surya kita akan terganggu oleh adanya "penggabungan" tersebut. Tetapi tabrakan itu pasti akan menyilaukan langit malam bagi makhluk apa pun yang ada di Bumi, yang hidup 4,5 miliar tahun dari sekarang.

"Gaia dirancang untuk memetakan bintang-bintang di dalam Bimasakti ---tetapi studi baru ini menunjukkan bahwa satelit itu bisa melakukan lebih dan dapat memberikan wawasan unik tentang struktur dan dinamika galaksi di luar wilayah kita sendiri," papar Prusti.

"Semakin lama Gaia mengamati pergerakan kecil galaksi-galaksi ini di langit, pengukuran kita akan menjadi lebih tepat," lanjutnya.

Andromeda bukan satu-satunya galaksi yang ditabrak oleh Bimasakti. Awan Magellan Besar (Large Magellanic Cloud) dan Bimasakti disebut akan "menyatu" sekitar 2,5 miliar tahun dari sekarang.

Studi baru tersebut diterbitkan bulan ini di The Astrophysical Journal.

NEW YORK YANKEES VS BALTIMORE ORIOLES - FULL HIGHLIGHTS - SPRING TRAINING: New York Yankees vs Baltimore Orioles - FULL HIGHLIGHTS - Spring Training - March 9, 2019. La tradizione degli allenamenti primaverili ha origini molto lontane. Le radici affondano addirittura tra il 1890 ed il 1910 in Arkansas, luogo di nascita degli spring-training. L’idea di portare i roster ad allenarsi in luoghi caldi e asciutti per prepararli alla stagione alle porte arriva da Albert Spalding e Adrian “Cap” Anson, rispettivamente presidente e giocatore/manager dei Chicago White Stocking, gli attuali Chicago Cubs. Nel 1886 sperimentarono questo tipo di allenamento e i successi ottenuti nella stagione successiva spinsero altre franchigie a convincersi che l’intuizione fosse corretta. Negli anni successivi si unirono altre squadre e così prese il via anche la tradizione delle amichevoli precampionato. Tra il 1894 ed il 1912 vennero costruiti stadi per ospitare proprio questi eventi. I primi furono il Whittington Field/Ban Johnson Park (1894), il Majestic Park (1909) e il Fogel Field (1912), tutti in Arkansas e demoliti da un pezzo.

          Mark Ingram joins Ravens on 3-year deal      Cache   Translate Page      
Ravens led the league last season in rushing attempts

Former Saints’ RB Mark Ingram intends to sign a three-year, $15 million deal with the Baltimore Ravens, per @diannaESPN and me. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: There was some thought early this off-season that the Saints would retain Ingram in free agency but that thought went by the wayside once the Saints signed Latavius Murray. The Ravens run-heavy scheme with Lamar Jackson at quarterback should allow plenty of opportunities for Ingram to be valued as an RB2 heading into the 2019 season. The Ravens led the league last season with 547 rushing attempts.
          Bills reshaping WR corps with J. Brown, Beasley      Cache   Translate Page      
Downfield throwing Josh Allen gets another deep threat

The #Bills are signing WR Cole Beasley, per @MikeGarafolo. First John Brown, now Beasley. Cole Beasley gets $17 million over the first two years of his deal with Buffalo, $14.4 million guaranteed. The #Cowboys wanted him back, but didn't come strong enough with the offers. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: The Bills receiving corps gets another deep threat in Brown and a slot receiver in Beasley. With Robert Foster, Zay Jones and Isaiah McKenzie already on the roster, the Bills seems set at receiver. Brown got off to a hot start in Baltimore last season, scoring 4 TDs in his first seven games, but his stats suffered once Lamar Jackson took over at QB and the Ravens became a run-first team.

Wernicke encephalopathy concurrent with polyradiculoneuropathy in a young man after bariatric surgery: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore). 2019 Mar;98(10):e14808

Authors: Chang HW, Yang PY, Han TI, Meng NH

Abstract
RATIONALE: Bariatric surgery is the recommended treatment for morbid obesity because of its rapid and sustained body weight loss effect. Nutrient deficiency-related neurological complications after bariatric surgery are often disabling. Thus, early recognition of these complications is important. Neurological complications involving the central and peripheral nerve system after bariatric surgery were reported. However, the report on the clinical course of the concurrent involvement of central and peripheral nervous system is limited. We present a rare case of a patient who developed Wernicke encephalopathy concurrent with polyradiculoneuropathy after receiving bariatric surgery.
PATIENT CONCERNS: A 22-year-old man with a history of morbid obesity presented progressive bilateral lower limbs weakness, blurred vision, and gait disturbance 2 months after receiving laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. Bilateral lower limb numbness and cognition impairment were also noted.
DIAGNOSIS: Brain magnetic resonance imaging and electrophysiologic studies confirmed the diagnosis of Wernicke encephalopathy concurrent with acute polyradiculoneuropathy.
INTERVENTIONS: Vitamin B and folic acid were given since admission. He also received regular intensive rehabilitation program.
OUTCOMES: The subject's cognitive impairment and diplopia improved 1 week after admission under medical treatments, yet lower limb weakness and gait disturbance were still noted. After a month of intensive inpatient rehabilitation, he was able to ambulate with a walker for 30 munder supervision.
LESSONS: Nutrient deficiency-related neurological complications after bariatric surgery are often disabling and even fatal. Prevention of neurological complications can be improved through close postsurgical follow-up of the nutritional status. Recognizing the signs and symptoms and evaluating the medical history are critical to the early diagnosis and treatment of this potentially serious yet treatable condition.

          Comment on History of the WAC by Joette Hunt      Cache   Translate Page      
I joined the Wac in April 1964. We did our basic training at Fort McCelland Anniston Alabama. No guns in those days just a baseball bat during bivac. Anniston was not a nice place for back women. They seemed to know how to hand it e the South of the 60s better than a girl from California. We had a lot of army history courses and physical training. We did kp in those days. Had a blue skirt and blouse with combat boots. Went on to Fort Holabird located in Baltimore Md for Intelligence School. You were somewhat isolated in the forts. We had a lot of protesters in those days of early Vietnam . We had an induction center on the corner of the post. Our sergeants that were women at the time were former WW 2 Wacs. They were putting in the end of their 20 years. I believe my time in the Army was a growing up time. In basic training we had women who had never seen a store bought bar of soap You learned to work together. We were all races. Our goal. Graduate basic training. My father was in WW1 and my neighbors growing up WW 2. My family fought in the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, the Black Hawk War, the Civil War maybe not on the right side but in what they believed states right. And we need Ww2 and I'm a Vietnam era vet.
