          Born on the Same Day - 10/14/1940      Cache   Translate Page      
Another installment in my "Born on the Same Day" series, featuring players who were born on the same day (!) and year. 

This is post #18 in the series: Tommy Harper and Billy Sorrell - both born on 10/14/1940.


Tommy Harper came up with the Reds in 1962 and was a starting corner outfielder for them from 1963 to 1967 (leading the NL with 127 runs scored in 1965).

After 1 year in Cleveland, he was selected by the Seattle Pilots in the expansion draft and was their starting 2B/3B in 1969. That season he led the AL in stolen bases (and also in times caught stealing).
He played 2 more seasons with the Brewers as their starting 3rd baseman (although by July 1971 he had moved back to the outfield).

Harper was a starting outfielder for the Red Sox from 1972-74, then strangely enough was traded to the Angels after the season for a utility infielder! He bounced to the Athletics and Orioles in late-75 and 1976 before retiring.


Billy Sorrell had a much shorter career. After playing in the Phillies' farm system from 1960-66, the Giants selected him in the Rule 5 draft (snaring Sorrell a spot on the 1967 Giants Rookie Stars card), but returned him to Philadelphia after a few weeks.

The Mets picked him up in 1968 for AAA depth, and he also played for the Royals' AAA team from 1969-71. Sorrell managed to see action in 57 games for the Royals in 1970, which is why this card exists. He finished up with 2 years in Japan (1972-73).
          Duke Sims (#169)      Cache   Translate Page      
Duke Sims played in the majors for 11 seasons (1964-74), the first 7 years with the Indians before moving around to other teams. Although never an every-day backstop, he got significant playing time with the Indians from 1967-70, mostly platooning with Joe Azcue. 1969 was the only season where he started more than half of his team’s games.

Sims began his pro career on the Indians' farm in 1959. After 6 seasons in the minors he made his major-league debut in September 1964, making 1 start that year on the season’s final day.


After the 1964 season, the Tribe traded starting catcher Johnny Romano to the White Sox, opening up the starting job for Azcue, who was the ’64 backup. Sims also moved up a notch, starting 33 games in his rookie season after spending the first 2 months in triple-A.

Sims was bumped down to #3 catcher in 1966, when Cleveland acquired the veteran Del Crandall (in his 16th and final season) to serve as Azcue's main caddy. The Duke still saw action in 48 games (31 starts).

With Crandall retired, Sims' fortunes improved in 1967. Not only did he return to the #2 slot, but he was on almost even footing with Azcue (77 starts to Joe’s 80 starts).

Their playing time in 1968 is misleading. Although Sims had 71 starts behind the dish to Azcue's 90, Duke began the season starting 14 straight games, and then was the starting 1st baseman for most of July (presumably Tony Horton was out of the lineup with injuries).

Azcue was dealt to the Red Sox during April 1969, meaning a promotion for Sims. He started a career-high 94 games behind the plate, with rookie Ray Fosse and journeyman Ken Suarez picking up the rest. That was to be his last season as a somewhat-regular catcher, as Fosse was primed to take over the job in 1970.

With Fosse catching 120 games in '70, Sims started a few dozen games at 1st base and a similar number in left field, while catching 38 games on Fosse’s days off.

After the 1970 season, Duke was traded to the Dodgers for pitchers Alan Foster and Ray Lamb. In LA, Sims was part of a 3-way catching carousel with Tom Haller and Joe Ferguson in 1971. The following year, he split the catching with Chris Cannizzaro (wait...Cannizzaro was a STARTING catcher for the Dodgers????), until Duke was shipped off to the Tigers in early August (joining 1971 teammate Haller, by the way).

He joined the Yankees for the last week of the 1973 season, and caught the final game at old Yankee Stadium. Sims bounced from the Yankees to the Rangers in 1974, and was released after the season.

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

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

 

Cleveland Cavaliers at Philadelphia 76ers (-14)

Moneyline: Cavaliers +800, Sixers -1400

Betting Total: 221.5 points 

Time (Eastern): 7 p.m.

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

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

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

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

The play: Cavaliers vs. Sixers Over

Bet Now

 

Portland Trail Blazers (-2) at Los Angeles Clippers

Moneyline: Trail Blazers -130, Clippers +110

Betting Total: 233 points 

Time (Eastern): 10:30 p.m.

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

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

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

The play: Clippers spread

          Browns Odell Beckham Bills Packers Patriots Broncos trade buzz      Cache   Translate Page      

The Patriots won the Super Bowl this past season without an elite outside receiver but that doesn’t mean the Pats won’t be looking to upgrade at the position this off-season.

There was more Odell Beckham Jr trade chatter on Monday as The Athletic’s Jeff Howe tweeted, “The Giants are still involved in trade discussions with Odell Beckham Jr, according to a source. One of the league’s best receivers remains on the market.”

Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller added: “The 49ers aren’t done yet. Spoke to someone this morning who said a trade for OBJ is still possible.” Adam Schefter weighed in on ESPN TV and said that the Giants are “listening to offers.”

Based on current salary cap and team history. Here is a ranking of teams most likely to trade for Beckham in the next few days.

1. San Francisco 49ers: John Lynch is hell-bent on finding a top option on the outside for Jimmy Garoppolo and the Niners have cap space to play with.

2. Cleveland Browns: Jarvis Landry has been pushing for this for a while and the Browns seem to be pulling a Los Angeles Rams, going for broke without thinking about long-term ramifications. Baker Mayfield’s rookie contract certainly helps.

3. Green Bay Packers: If only Aaron Rodgers made a little less. Still, the Packers have two first round picks to dangle.

4. Buffalo Bills: They were close with Antonio Brown, but like Brown Beckham might scoff at going to Orchard Park. Beckham has said he wants to “play with a winner” and could run into the same troubles he has in New York in Buffalo.

Bet Now

5. Denver Broncos: John Elway is a go-big or go-home executive and must be worried about the health of Emmanuel Sanders. The Broncos need a No. 1 WR with Sanders questionable and could fit Beckham under the cap.

6. New England Patriots: The Patriots are the least likely team here to make a trade for Beckham. As Albert Breer pointed out in his MMQB column this week, elite receivers that are unhappy are going to want to get what Antonio Brown just got: a new contract.

“What’s going to happen,” on prominent agent told Breer on Sunday, “is that superstar players are going to see that their only leverage is to force a trade and get a new deal from their new team.”

 

Patriots lose Flowers and Brown

Tom Brady’s health and Bill Belichick’s brain remain the two most important parts of the Patriots dynasty, but the franchise was dealt two major blows on Monday as they saw their top defensive and offensive lineman walk in free agency.

Trey Flowers is headed to the Detroit Lions to join up with former defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, and Trent Brown cashed in with a contract as big as his waistline in Oakland.

For the second straight off-season, the Patriots have lost an elite left tackle. Last year it was Nate Solder to the Giants. This year it was Trent Brown to the Raiders for a whopping $66 million over four years. It will be the highest contract for an offensive lineman in league history.

The Patriots never dabble in dishing out historic contracts, so it’s no surprise that they did not match the Raiders offer. But this will hurt.

The Pats will now be relying on 22-year-old Isaiah Wynn to protect Brady’s blind side. Wynn was the first player the Patriots picked in last year’s NFL Draft at No. 23 but the Georgia product tore his Achilles in the Pats’ second preseason game and missed the entire 2018 season.

LaAdrian Waddle is another option for the Pats at left tackle.


          Some big names for Eagles to pursue in free agency: Macnow      Cache   Translate Page      

NFL free agency officially begins Wednesday afternoon. Here’s my advice to fans: Put on your Eagles green, flip on the NFL Network, order in a hoagie and get ready for the excitement.

Unlike baseball’s endless Game of Thrones winter, the NFL hot stove heats up fast. Prominent names will move in the first few days. Franchises will make dramatic changes.  

General manager Howie Roseman has been sharp at this game. He’s had some free-agent whiffs, no doubt (Chance Warmack, Haloti Ngata, Mark Sanchez), but his successes include guard Brandon Brooks, safety Malcolm Jenkins, linebacker Nigel Bradham, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, defensive end Chris Long and, of course, quarterback Nick Foles, who now departs.

The Birds already got off to a good start Monday, signing defensive tackle Malik  Jackson, who was released by Jacksonville. Jackson’s been a Pro Bowler and won a Super Bowl with Denver. He’ll look great lined up next to Fletcher Cox. 

But Roseman’s team has other needs, not all of which can be addressed in the April draft. And, after recent moves, he has $20 million in cap space. Here’s where I think he should spend it:

Running back: After Jay Ajayi’s injury last season, the Eagles rotation was a mess. No one on the current roster seems capable of playing the lead in this production. Le’Veon Bell would be an amazing addition, but there’s little shot the Eagles commit what it costs to sign him.

That means looking at the next level. Tevin Coleman of the Falcons is a productive, versatile 25-year-old. He had 1,076 yards last season on runs and receptions. And he’s averaged 4.4 yards per carry over his career. He’d be a great fit here — as well as many other teams. He’ll draw lots of interest.

Keep an eye, too, on the Saints' 29-year-old Mark Ingram, who can run with the ball (4.8 yards per carry over the past four seasons), as well as catch and pass block — always important with the Eagles. And I love Cleveland’s Duke Johnson, who’s not a free agent but rumored to be available. He’s among the best pass-catching backs in the NFL.

 

Wide receiver: DeSean Jackson’s divorce from Tampa Bay seems inevitable and many rumors have him returning here. With one year and $10 million left on his contract, it’s not a bad idea. Even at 32, Jackson averaged 18.9 yards per catch in 2018 — the third time in five seasons he’s led the league in that category.

It seems the Eagles have been searching for a speed receiver since Jackson left in 2014. If not him, I’d like to see them target John Brown. Playing in the Ravens’ pitiful passing game last season, Brown still averaged 17.0 yards per catch. And he fights for the ball.

 

Defensive line: The reshuffling is already underway with the signing of Malik Jackson and the trade of DE Michael Bennett to New England. Also, expect the departure of Tim Jernigan (who I think they should keep on a short-term deal).

Two sexy names: Pass rusher Ezekiel Ansah of the Lions, who would be an upgrade from Bennett, and DT Ndamukong Suh, who had his typical up-and-down season while making $14 million for the Rams in 2018. One hook here: Suh spent his first for seasons in Detroit playing for current Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz.

Oh, and don’t be surprised if DE Vinny Curry returns from Tampa under a short-term deal as Bennett’s replacement.

This much is sure: The team that opens this September will be vastly different from the one whose season ended in New Orleans last January. And the remake starts this week.

          Is America really the Land of the 'Free'?      Cache   Translate Page      

The 4 images below demonstrate how ironic it is that America claims to be the land of the ‘free’, yet has the highest prison population in the world.


  





"I Miss My Friends and Family." Self Deprecate. Jason Parker, 29 Sept. 2013.
    Web. 12 Jan. 2015. <http://selfdeprecate.com/politics-articles/
    us-incarceration-rate-prison/>.

This cartoon supports the ironic fact that America, the land of the ‘free’ has the highest prison population in the world by showing a family member/friend missing someone who has gone to prison, and a person replying that they will be together again soon. The accompanying frame includes his friends and family who have ‘joined’ him in prison implying that the American incarceration rate is on the rise. As of December 31st, 2013 there were 1.57 million inmates who sat behind bars in federal state, and county prisons. Per 100,000 people in America, 707 are incarcerated. Tone is used in this image by the illustrator to demonstrate the ridiculous increase of prisoners in America.


Arnold Abbott, head of the group Love Thy Neighbor, was back to handing out food
    to the needy Wednesday, undeterred by his arrest for feeding the homeless
    over the weekend. Washington Times. Jessica Chasmar, 6 Nov. 2014. Web. 12
    Jan. 2015.

This is an image of a 90 year named Arnold Abbott, a Florida man who was arrested for feeding the homeless. The new city’s (Florida) ordinance forbids people to feed the homeless in public. It is ironic that America, the land of the ‘free’ incarcerates people for their actions caused by good intentions. These meaningless laws are contributing to why America has the most populated prisons in the world. This image reflects conflict because Arnold needs to decide between continuing to feed the homeless or facing possible jail time.


Kwame Ajamu, right, formerly known as Ronnie Bridgeman, is comforted by attorney
    Terry Gilbert on Tuesday. Washington Post. Elahe Izadi, 9 Dec. 2014. Web.
    12 Jan. 2015.

This is an image of Kwame Ajamu, a 57 year old man who at 17 years old was convicted of murder in the killing of a Cleveland salesman. On Tuesday December 8th, Ohio man Kwame wept after a judge cleared all charges against him at age 57. This demonstrates complication because an innocent man had spent 27 years of his life in prison for a murder he did not commit while the person who did commit the crime was running free. Further proving that America is not necessarily a land of the ‘free’ if someone has to spend a great portion of their life in prison for something they did not commit.


"1 More Strike Zone." Incarcerated Voices. Jaime Stankowitz, n.d. Web. 12 Jan.
    2015.

This cartoon image demonstrates the 3 strike law which is currently found in 28 states. The 3 strike law increases the prison sentences of someone who has previously been convicted of two or more felonies. A person with 2 previous, less spiteful charges, such as stealing a bike and littering can go to jail for 25 years to life if they are convicted of a third felony, no matter how severe. This clashes against the perception America has as being known as the land of the ‘free’ and contributes to the increasing  prison population. Irony is demonstrated throughout this law and image because the punishment doesn’t fit the crime. Someone who has committed these lesser felonies should be sentenced to probation and rehabilitation not added to the already overpopulated prison system that America has created by enforcing these absurd laws.

Персиваль Лоуэлл (также Ловелл; Percival Lowell)
американский бизнесмен, востоковед, дипломат, астроном и математик, исследователь планеты Марс, открыл астероид «Аризона» (1907). Почётный член Американской академии искусств и наук (англ. American Academy of Arts and Sciences), Британского общества востоковедов, Французского астрономического общества, Астрономических обществ США, Бельгии, Германии и Мексики. Удостоен медали Жансена Французского астрономического общества (1904), а также Золотой медали Астрономического общества Мексики (1908) — обе за исследования Марса. Почётный профессор астрономии Массачусетского технологического института. В честь Лоуэлла названы кратеры на Луне и на Марсе. Персиваль Лоуэлл — основатель и первый директор крупнейшей частной обсерватории в США. Многие годы потратил на поиски девятой планеты Солнечной системы. После обнаружения карликовой планеты Плутон Клайдом Томбо через 14 лет после смерти Лоуэлла, название планеты было выбрано так, чтобы, не выбиваясь из мифологического ряда, оно включало в себя также инициалы Лоуэлла. В то же время Лоуэлл разрабатывал псевдонаучную теорию о существовании на Марсе высокоразвитой цивилизации, отвергнутую уже его современниками. Родился в Бостоне (Массачусетс). Представитель одного из старейших семейств Бостона, обосновавшегося в США с 1639 года, входящих в сонм так называемых «Бостонских браминов». Клан Лоуэллов дал Америке десятки выдающихся личностей. Отец — известный бизнесмен и филантроп, вице-президент Американской Академии наук и искусств Огастас Лоуэлл (1830—1900), мать — Кэтрин Бигелоу Лоуренс. В семье было семь детей, Персиваль был первенцем. Младший брат Персиваля, Эббот Лоуренс Лоуэлл (1856—1943) стал президентом Гарвардского университета, а младшая сестра Эми Лоуренс Лоуэлл (1874—1925) стала поэтессой-имажисткой и была удостоена Пулитцеровской премии (1926, посмертно). Окончил престижную школу «Noble and Greenough School» (1872), где удостолся награды «Bowdoin Prize», и Гарвардский университет (1876), где занимался не только математикой и физикой, но и гуманитарными науками. Астрономией увлекался с раннего детства. Получил предложение остаться в Гарварде для приготовления к профессорскому званию, но отказался от него. Получив от отца 100 тыс. долларов, в 1877—1878 годы совершил длительную поездку в Европу и на Ближний Восток (в Сирию). В дальнейшем работал управляющим текстильными фабриками деда — известного филантропа Джона Эймори Лоуэлла (1798—1881). Отказался от вступления в брак. Унаследовав семейный бизнес (текстильные фабрики и электрическую компанию), в 1880-е годы заинтересовался Дальним Востоком, занимался востоковедением и в частности японским языком. В 1883 г. был назначен прикреплённым секретарём и советником корейского посольства в США. В 1883—1893 годах совершил три длительных поездки в Японию, где занимался научными исследованиями и дипломатией. Опубликовал ряд монографий, посвящённых особенностям японского национального характера, языка и религии. Главные его востоковедческие труды: «Noto» (1891) и «Occult Japan» (1894). Большой популярностью пользовалась его книга «The Soul of the Far East» (1888), в которой он доказывал, что прогресс в значительной степени является плодом индивидуальных усилий и фантазии. Стиль его востоковедческих трудов примечателен: он пытался рассматривать особенности японского уклада жизни через алгебраические построения. Считал западный национальный характер олицетворением мужского начала, а японский — женского. В 1894 году, достигнув большого политического влияния и располагая значительными средствами, Лоуэлл решил полностью изменить свою жизнь. Он посвятил себя астрономии, и следующие 23 года его жизни были тесно связаны с Флагстаффом (Аризона), где он привлек к работе в своей обсерватории лучших специалистов своего времени, в том числе Уильяма Пикеринга и Весто Слайфера. Три его книги, посвящённые Марсу, стали бестселлерами своего времени. Из-за тяжёлого приступа депрессии, в 1897—1901 гг. забросил астрономические исследования, живя в это время на Бермудских островах и во Франции. В дальнейшем, постоянно проживал в Бостоне, бывая во Флагстаффе наездами. В 1907 году удостоен почётной степени доктора права Колледжем Амхерста, в 1909 году удостоен такой же степени Университетом Кларка. В 1908 году Персиваль Лоуэлл женился на Констанс Сэвидж Кейт (1863—1954), которая была художником-оформителем его резиденции в Бостоне. С 1912 года посвятил деятельность своей обсерватории поискам занептуновой планеты Солнечной системы. Критику своих теорий научным сообществом Лоуэлл переносил очень тяжело. Будучи последовательным пацифистом, он не перенёс известий о начале Первой Мировой войны и вступления в неё США. Скончался в Флагстаффе (Аризона) от инсульта 12 ноября 1916 года. Был похоронен в мавзолее на территории обсерватории. После его кончины вдова пыталась отсудить у обсерватории Лоуэлла более 1 млн долларов. Тяжба длилась более десятилетия и нанесла существенный урон деятельности обсерватории. Лоуэлл был многосторонне образованным человеком: свободно владел латинским и древнегреческими языками, староанглийским языком, был известен как знаток литературы и тонкий ценитель вин. Увлекался игрой в поло, и был одним из основателей престижного «Dedham Polo Club». В то же время, многие источники указывают, что он был склонен к авторитаризму, что проявилось и на научном поприще. Лоуэлл заинтересовался Марсом после прочтения работ Камиля Фламмариона и Джованни Скиапарелли, делавших попытки объяснить происхождение марсианских каналов. Книга Фламмариона была ему подарена на Рождество 1893 г. родной тёткой. Немалую роль в решении заняться астрономией сыграло и давнее знакомство с Уильямом Генри Пикерингом, который жил по соседству с Лоуэллами, а также близящееся противостояние Марса и Земли в октябре 1894 года. Лоуэлл выбрал для основания обсерватории гористую местность в Аризонской пустыне на высоте около 7 тысяч футов (2175 м.), с хорошим астроклиматом и близкую к железной дороге. Исследования Марса продолжались 15 лет, при этом результаты наблюдений фиксировались в рисунках (более 15 тысяч их было сделано только самим Лоуэллом), поскольку астрономическая фотография была в то время в зачаточном состоянии. Результаты наблюдений были опубликованы в трёх чрезвычайно популярных в то время трудах: «Mars» (1895), «Mars and Its Canals» (1906), «Mars As the Abode of Life» (1908, русский перевод «Марс и жизнь на нём». Одесса, 1912). Последняя книга, несмотря на название, излагала собственную астрономическую теорию Лоуэлла. Его работы стали основой паранаучной теории о существовании на Марсе высокоорганизованной жизни и древней цивилизации. Примечательно, что о существовании высокоразвитой жизни на Марсе Лоуэлл объявил ещё до начала регулярных наблюдений в 1894 году. Содержание работ Лоуэлла таково: Планеты Солнечной системы эволюционируют в одном направлении. Стадии эволюции, по Лоуэллу, таковы: 1.Солнечная стадия (The Sun Stage): планета раскалена настолько, что обладает собственным световым излучением. 2.Расплавленная стадия (The Molten Stage): планета ещё горяча, но уже не обладает самосвечением. 3.Стадия отвердения (The Solidifying Stage): формируется твёрдая поверхность планетной коры. Формируются океанические бассейны. Геологически — это эра метаморфических горных пород. 4.Стадия земли и воды (The Terraqueous Stage): формируются осадочные породы. 5.Стадия суши (The Terrestrial Stage): начинается иссыхание океанов. 6.Стадия смерти (The Dead Stage): улетучивается атмосфера. Каждая планета должна проходить через эти стадии. Нептун, Уран, Сатурн и Юпитер находятся на стадии 2, Земля — на стадии 4, Марс — на стадии 5, и на стадии 6 — Луна и крупные спутники планет. Марс, будучи меньше Земли по размерам, остыл раньше, и эволюция жизни на нём шла более быстрыми темпами. Из-за высыхания планеты, на которой нет больших водоёмов, местная цивилизация вынуждена была построить глобальную сеть каналов (Лоуэлл насчитывал их более 600), переносящих воды тающих полярных ледников в экваториальные зоны. Это возможно только при наличии всепланетного государства и гораздо более развитой, чем земная, технологии. Лоуэлл осознавал, что видимые с Земли «каналы» должны иметь ширину не менее 100 км, но заявлял, что наблюдаются пояса растительности, расположенные близ источника воды. Теории Лоуэлла были популярны у читающей публики, но профессиональные учёные встретили их скептически. Хотя было составлено множество карт марсианских каналов, они не совпадали друг с другом, некоторые известные астрономы вообще не видели никаких каналов. Среди них, например, был Эжен Антониади, производившим наблюдения во время противостояния в 1909 году, пользуясь мощным телескопом Медонской обсерватории. Ряд исследователей объясняли появление каналов на Марсе оптической иллюзией. Так, в 1903 Эдвардом Маундером был поставлен эксперимент, в ходе которого испытуемым показывали изображения с беспорядочным набором пятен, вместо которых многие из них видели «каналы». В 1907 году Альфред Рассел Уоллес опубликовал брошюру Is Mars Habitable?, в которой показал, что температура на поверхности Марса намного ниже, чем считалось Лоуэллом, а атмосферное давление слишком мало для существования воды в жидком виде. К тому же спектральный анализ атмосферы не показал наличия в ней водяного пара. Отсюда он сделал вывод, что существование на Марсе высокоорганизованной жизни невозможно, не говоря уже о развитой цивилизации и искусственных сооружениях. Таким образом, Лоуэлл оказался в полной научной изоляции. Точку в проблеме каналов поставил полёт зонда Mariner 4 в 1965 году, передавшего на Землю фотографии Марса, на которых можно было увидеть только безжизненную поверхность с метеоритными кратерами. До этого многие учёные (например, Г.А.Тихов) считали наличие на Марсе низших растений вполне возможным. Помимо исследований Марса, Лоуэлл известен наблюдениями Венеры и спутников Юпитера. Он обнаружил «каналы» и на этих объектах, несмотря на то, что поверхность Венеры скрыта густой облачностью, а поверхность спутников Юпитера не может наблюдаться с Земли. В 2003 году была выдвинута гипотеза, что Лоуэлл страдал дефектом зрения, и наблюдал узоры собственной сетчатки. Кроме того, Лоуэлл полагал, что период обращения Венеры вокруг оси и период обращения вокруг Солнца совпадают. Это мнение разделяли многие астрономы его времени. Последние десять лет жизни, Лоуэлл посвятил поискам девятой планеты Солнечной системы, которую называл «планета Х». Его усилия не увенчались успехом. Плутон, однако, был обнаружен именно в обсерватории Лоуэлла, причём в месте, близком к расчётам Лоуэлла (в настоящее время это признаётся случайностью). Несмотря на псевдонаучные теории о существовании цивилизации Марса, Лоуэлл вписал своё имя в историю астрономии. Исследования Лоуэлла оказали большое влияние на Герберта Уэллса и его книгу «Война миров». Картами Марса, составленными Лоуэллом, пользовался и Эдгар Райс Берроуз, создавая свою картину марсианской цивилизации. После публикации теорий Лоуэлла никто в тогдашнем мире не сомневался в наличии жизни на Марсе. В 1900 г. К.Гузман учредила премию в 100 000 франков за налаживание двусторонней связи с внеземной цивилизацией. Известия с Марса (если бы они были получены) при этом игнорировались… Лоуэлл располагал 24-дюймовым (61-см) телескопом-рефрактором, изготовленный фирмой Элвина Кларка. Видимый размер Марса даже во время великого противостояния не превышает 25″(1/70 размера лунного диска). При фотографировании диаметр марсианского диска на фотопластинке не превышал 6 мм, и накладывался на зёрна фотоэмульсии. Труд Лоуэлла «Марс и его каналы» (1906) посвящался «Джованни Скиапарелли, Колумбу нового планетарного мира».

Гуго Вольф (немецкое имя - Hugo Wolf)
австрийский композитор, сочинения которого ознаменовали высшую фазу развития немецкой романтической песни (Lied). Гуго Филипп Якоб Вольф родился в Виндишграце в Южной Штирии (ныне Словеньградец, Словения). В детстве научился играть на фортепиано, скрипке и органе. В 10 лет, после окончания начальной школы, он поступил в гимназию в Граце, через год - в конвикт бенедиктинского монастыря (где усовершенствовал свои познания в музыке), в 1873 г. - в гимназию Марбурга-на-Драве, и, наконец, в 1875 г. - в Венскую консерваторию. Как пианист он оказался настолько подготовленным, что его зачислили сразу на второй курс; но уровень музыкальных сочинений абитуриента показался экзаменаторам недостаточным, и пришлось здесь начинать с азов гармонии. Только со второго курса Вольф приступил к занятиям композицией, но вскоре был исключён из консерватории за грубость и недисциплинированное поведение. Всеми знаниями, которые он получил с этих пор, Вольф обязан исключительно самому себе. Вольф учился вместе с Густавом Малером, а в 1879 году они вместе с третьим товарищем — будущим дирижером Рудольфом Крижановски — даже вскладчину снимали комнату; как позднее вспоминал Малер, им приходилось с Вольфом спать на одной кровати, чтобы как-то разместиться в помещении, явно не рассчитанном на троих. Наряду с консерваторией важнейшим источником музыкального образования стало для композитора посещение оперы. Вскоре он стал горячим приверженцем творчества Р.Вагнера; вагнеровские идеи о подчинении музыки драме, о единстве слова и музыки были по-своему претворены Вольфом в жанре песни. Начинающий музыкант посетил своего кумира, когда тот был в Вене, и Вагнер благосклонно оценил тогда его композиторские опыты. Однако в первые годы самостоятельной жизни в Вене попытки Вольфа утвердиться, как композитору не привели к ощутимым результатам. Друзья — и профессионалы самого высокого ранга, и любители музыки — были убеждены в большой ценности того, что он сочинял, пытались содействовать изданию его песен. Но даже в скромном венском издательстве их хлопоты не привели к успеху. Тогда в 1879 году он решает показать свои сочинения Брамсу. (Несмотря на увлеченность Вагнером, Вольф в молодые годы вовсе не был противником Брамса, как некоторые из его друзей-вагнерианцев.) Брамс принимает Вольфа у себя дома, внимательно знакомится с его музыкой, видит, что какие-то вещи тому несомненно удаются. Однако Брамсу кажется, что его гостю недостает полифонической техники; а Вольф, недоучившись в консерватории, скорее всего не успел пройти курса контрапункта. Брамс советует юноше восполнить пробел и откладывает рекомендацию. В 1881-1882 гг. Вольф работает в качестве дирижера в городском театре Зальцбурга. В 1884-1887 гг. он сотрудничал в еженедельнике "Венский салонный листок". Как музыкальный критик Вольф отстаивал творчество Вагнера и провозглашенное им "искусство будущего", которое должно объединить музыку, театр и поэзию. Но основным его заработком остаются уроки музыки. К ним добавляются занятия с певцами; это ему было ближе и интереснее, чем обучать детей игре на рояле. В 1878 г. Вольф знакомится с Валли Франк, роман с которой длился у него три с половиной года. Юношеская любовь в большой степени способствовала его первым значительным произведениям – песням на слова Г.Гейне. Эти песни чрезвычайно разнообразны по своему настроению и характеру музыки. Эта любовь композитора закончилась весьма трагически – он заболел менингиальным сифилисом. Наступила продолжительная депрессия, из которой Гуго Вольфу удалось выйти лишь через два года. Позиция Вольфа как музыкального критика помешала ему как композитору. Симпатии большинства венских музыкантов были на стороне И.Брамса, и Вольф нажил в Вене множество врагов. Благодаря всему этому положение Вольфа в музыкальном мире Вены оставалось сложным; его первые произведения получили недоброжелательную оценку прессы. Дело дошло до того, что в 1883 г. во время исполнения симфонической поэмы Вольфа "Пентесилея" (по трагедии Г.Клейста) оркестранты играли нарочито грязно, искажая музыку. Результатом этого стал почти полный отказ композитора от создания произведений для оркестра - только через 7 лет появится "Итальянская серенада" (1892). В 1888 г. по подписке был напечатан первый сборник песен Вольфа, составленный им из произведений, созданных им за десять лет (часть тиража в покрытие расходов приобрели члены местного вагнеровского общества). У воодушевлённого композитора начинается творческий подъем, который продлился у Вольфа с января 1888 года до конца апреля 1890 года, то есть немногим более двух лет. За этот срок он создал более 160 песен (примерно половину своих произведений). Это циклы на слова Мёрике, Эйхендорфа и Гёте, а также "Испанский песенник" (тексты взяты из антологии народно-песенной испанской и португальской поэзии в переводах Гейзе и Гейбеля). Поскольку основу романсов Вольфа составляет декламационная и интонационная выразительность и повышенное внимание к поэтическому слову (в этом смысле Хуго Вольфа можно считать одним из первых экспрессионистов), композитор называет свои произведения не песнями, не романсами, а напрямую «стихотворениями для голоса и фортепиано». Начиная со «Стихотворений Э.Мёрике» характерным для творческого метода Вольфа становится объединение в рамках одного сборника большого числа контрастных разнохарактерных песен, связанных между собой единством поэтического первоисточника. Иногда это единство также подкрепляется и общей сюжетной основой. "Испанский песенник" обозначил в творческой биографии композитора очень важный поворот: отныне и до конца жизни все его крупные работы будут связаны не с немецкой поэзией, а исключительно с литературой романской традиции в переводах на немецкий язык. После окончания "Испанского песенника" композитор тут же приступает к сочинению "Итальянского песенника" (на слова из собрания итальянской народной поэзии в переводах П.Гейзе), но в 1892—1893 гг. он переживает длительный период творческого бездействия, и полностью закончить «Итальянский песенник» Вольфу удается только к маю 1896 года. После этого Вольф собирается в Берлин, где вечер его песен взялся провести крупнейший концертный агент Герман Вольфф. В начале января 1894 года в Берлине с триумфальным успехом прошел совместный авторский вокально-симфонический концерт Брукнера и Вольфа, прославивший в Германии обоих замечательных австрийцев. Из Берлина Вольф выехал 25 января и проследовал в Дармштадт, откуда началось его концертное турне по городам Южной Германии. В конце декабря 1894 года Вольф, наконец, нашел либретто, которое искал 12(!) лет. Накануне своего 35-летия Вольф занес на нотную бумагу первые такты будущей оперы, через четыре месяца на столе композитора уже лежал полностью законченный клавир комической оперы «Коррехидор» по новелле Педро Аларкона, а ещё через пять - партитура; но, поставленная в Мангейме в 1896 году, эта опера успеха не имела. Спустя некоторое время после этого Вольф пишет свой последний вокальный цикл - "Стихотворения Микеланджело". В апреле 1897 года композитор приступил к осуществлению еще одного оперного замысла, который вынашивал пять лет, — к опере «Мануэль Венегас», тоже по новелле Педро Аларкона. Но закончить это произведение Вольфу не удалось. У композитора появились симптомы душевного заболевания, и в сентябре 1897 он был помещен в лечебницу. В феврале 1898 наступило временное облегчение, и Вольф отправился в Италию, однако после попытки самоубийства в октябре он, по его собственной просьбе, был помещен в лечебницу в Вене, где и скончался от прогрессирующего паралича 22 февраля 1903 года.

Он уже был женат на Павле Петровне Кортневой, дочери саратовского священника. В том же 1884 году он был рукоположен в сан священника с назначением в Михаило-Архангельскую церковь села Липовки Царицынского уезда. Через два года служения, в 1886 году, по собственному прошению он был переведен к Казанской церкви села Рыбного, относящегося к Камышинскому уезду. Познакомился с протоиереем Димитрием Разумовским, историком русского музыкального наследия. С февраля 1890 по сентябрь 1895 о. Василий Металлов преподавал церковное пение в Саратовской духовной семинарии. В конце 1895 директор Московского синодального училища С.В.Смоленский пригласил протоиерея Василия Металлова для работы по созданию рукописной библиотеки училища и преподавания в нем. Служил в Василие-Кесарийской церкви в Москве и до 1906 состоял преподавателем дидактики, а до 1910 - церковного пения в Московском синодальном училище. Получил четыре премии митрополита Макария (1897 за «Азбуку крюкового пения.

Дайтон Кларенс Миллер (Miller, Dayton Clarence)
американский физик, акустик, один из пионеров в использовании рентгеновских лучей, сторонник теории эфира и абсолютного пространства, отрицатель теории относительности А.Эйнштейна. Родился в Стронгсвилле (Strongsville), штат Огайо, США. Родители — Чарльз Уэбстер Дьюи (Charles Webster Dewey) и Виенна Померой Миллер (Vienna Pomeroy Miller). Закончил университет Болдуин (Baldwin University) в 1886 г. Получил степень доктора в Принстоне в 1890 г., и стал профессором математики и физики в Кейсовской школе прикладных наук (Case School of Applied Science). В 1895—1936 гг. возглавлял там кафедру физики. В 1893 году женился на Эдит Истон (Edith Easton) в 1893 г. Умер в Кливленде, Огайо (Cleveland, Ohio) 22 февраля 1941 года. После открытия в 1895 г. В.К.Рентгеном X-лучей, Миллер построил рентгеновский аппарат с трубкой Крукса и двенадцатью батареями на жидком электролите. В 1896 г. сделал полный рентгеновский снимок человеческого тела по частям. Аппарат был использован в медицинских целях, в частности, для выявления неправильно сросшегося перелома руки у пациента доктора Крайла (Crile). Разработал аппарат phonodeik — предшественник осциллографа. Работал над акустикой зданий, включая Severance Hall в Кливленде. Исполнял и сочинял музыкальные произведения, построил орган, сделал золотую флейту, собрал коллекцию из 1500 флейт, которые остались в Библиотеке Конгресса США. Консультировал компанию Aeolian Co. при разработке фортепиано Веббера. Миллер повторил опыты Майкельсона на дирижабле. Вопреки опыту Майкельсона и всем опытам из этой плеяды результат был «положительным», другими словами, был обнаружен сдвиг в полосе интерферующих волн: Для h = 250 м. Vэфир = 3 км/сек.; для h = 1860 м. Vэфир = 10 км/сек. Опыты производились в 1902—1906 гг. (Морли и Миллер), в 1921—1925 гг. (Миллер) и позднее. Опытная установка была поднята в горную местность и не закрыта металлическим кожухом согласно рекомендациям, которые дал Майкельсон в работе 1887 г. Миллер утверждал, что на этом же оборудовании он получил определённый результат — эфирный ветер со скоростью около 10 км/с из апекса в созвездии Дракона с координатами (255°, +68°). В 1933 г. Д.К.Миллер опубликовал большую итоговую статью о своих работах, где указывал скорость эфирного ветра от 10 до 11 ±0,33 км/с при вероятной погрешности определения азимута ±2,5° и полярных координат ±0,5°. Более поздние исследования результатов, полученных Д.Миллером, показали, что флюктуации, наблюдавшиеся им и интерпретированные как наличие «эфирного ветра» являются следствием статистических ошибок и неучёта температурных эффектов. Таким образом, его эксперименты не содержат доказательства существования эфира.

          Update on the Tel Zayit Abecedary      Cache   Translate Page      
On March 8, 2006, Dr. Ron Tappy made a further presentation on the Tel Zayit abecedary. Here are some details from the Tel Zayit website which correspond to his talk.
    1. The Tel Zayit finding is an inscription that bears the oldest known securely datable example of an abecedary, that is, the letters of the alphabet written out from beginning to end in their traditional sequence.

    2. The inscribed stone might have been built into the wall because of the ancient belief in the alphabet's magical or apotropaic power, that is, its ability to ward off evil.

    3. The stone bearing the Tel Zayit Inscription comprised part of a wall belonging to a structure that dates to the late tenth century BCE.

    4. Preliminary results suggest that in the tenth century BCE Tel Zayit was associated with the highland culture of southern Canaan, not the coastal culture of the Philistine plain, and therefore it very well may have functioned as part of the new state being formed by Kings David and Solomon, with its capital at Jerusalem.

    5.. The early appearance of literacy at Tel Zayit will play a pivotal role in the current discussion of the archaeology and history of Israel and Judah in the tenth century BCE.

    6..It raises the possibility that formal scribal training at the outlying site of Tel Zayit was a result of a rapidly developing Israelite bureaucracy in Jerusalem.
Some find that there is a series of abstract leaps here from one thing to another. I find that the extension from the original inscription on stone to a bureacracy is somewhat bold. Maybe they both existed, but the connection seems tenuous.

Here are four statements from the Wikipedia entry.
    1. It was found in-situ in a stratum dated to the 10th century BCE by a fire dated to approximately 900 BCE.

    2. Until this discovery, critics could say inhabitants of this region at this period were illiterate and could not have recorded events mentioned in the Bible.

    3. It not only preserves writing--simple graffiti--but an abecedary, an educational tool for literate people (although there are 4 pairs of letters swapped from their traditional alphabetic order, and possibly 2 other misplaced letters were aborted; indications that reflect negatively on the scribe's skill level).

    4. The site is located in a region not central to the government of the Israelite monarchy (Jerusalem), which suggests that if people in this agricultural community could write, certainly people in the government were equally capable.
However, Paul Iverson, of Case Western Reserve University recently sent an e-mail regarding Dr. Tappy's March 8th presentation at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. Iverson has a particular interest in Greek epigraphy and philology. He sent this email to Chris Heard on Higgaion.

Iverson states,

    His arguments that this inscription is an abecedarium that provides evidence for an alternate official order (I can't understand the claim on the website of a "traditional sequence" since it clearly isn't the traditional order as Tappy pointed out several times) of the letters is also rather rash.

    I would offer two other more likely explanations: either it was a novice who was practicing and thus made mistakes (quite common on Greek examples), or it was someone who was more concerned with practicing the shapes of the letters rather than the order (i.e., it's not really meant to be a abecedarium).

    I incline toward the latter explanation as the letters seemed to be of high quality. Some scribe who's interested in practicing or giving an example of his letter strokes does not worry so much about inscribing them deeply or in their proper order - just give them all and inscribe them deep enough to practice the shapes. Again, on comparative material from the Greek world, one often finds abecedaria with peculiar orders in the letters or shapes, even as late as the fifth century BCE.
And he sums up his arguments as follows,

    To recap: the inscription was probably reused into the wall without some apotropaic [magical]purpose, hence it cannot simply be assumed to date at the time the wall was built -- rather it dates before the wall was built.

    Only a small fraction of the Tell has been excavated, so it cannot yet be claimed with certainty that there was nothing going there in the 11th century and thus that inscription has to be during the 10th century.

    It was found in a context where there was both coastal and highland culture so as of yet, so far as I could tell, it cannot fairly be claimed to incline toward the highland (i.e., it cannot be said to be the earliest example of a Hebrew alphabet).

    It cannot even be said that this was meant to be an abecedarium in the sense that it was used to display the official order of the letters of the alphabet, since we do not know the purpose of it.
There is a post on Abnormal Interests on the order of the inscription, and Dr. Joe Cathey comments here. An ealrier post on Higgaion makes some excellent points.

I would like to add my own little comment. I worked for several years on a study of literacy among the James Bay Cree. There are many conflicting and contradictory theories on the origins of this literate tradition, and I think some of them could possibly be cleared up in my lifetime. But that story starts in the 1800's .

Fire erupts at Delaware City oil refinery

A fire ripped through part of a refinery in Delaware City on Friday afternoon.

1. History of Tosco Corporation – FundingUniverse
        by David Lincoln 

Template Tosco was founded in 1955 under the name Oil Shale Corporation. The company was incorporated under the laws of the state of Nevada, but made its headquarters in the Los Angeles area.  The project won some early support from the U.S. government, but interest from other sources was meager and the initiative soon died out.

 in 1965 when it joined West Coast oil giant Atlantic Richfield in forming the Colony Shale Oil Project..  It sold part of its interest in Colony Shale Oil to Atlantic Richfield for $8 million, staggered some observers in the investment community by leveraging itself to the hilt, and then went on a buying spree. In 1970 it acquired the Signal Oil & Gas refinery in Bakersfield, California, for $22.5 million. In 1976 it acquired $222 million of Phillips Petroleum's West Coast property, including the giant Avon Refinery in Concord, California. These moves gave the company a refining capacity of more than 200,000 barrels per day, making it the third-largest independent refiner in the United States and the largest supplier of gasoline to independent marketers on the West Coast.  Morton Winston, a lawyer who became a full-time executive with the company in 1964, was named president in 1971 . Morton Winston was an anomaly in an industry in which most top managers had backgrounds in geology, engineering, or finance. As a graduate student in the early 1950s, he aspired to become a literary scholar and chairman of a college English department. Later, after a stint in the Coast Guard, he entered Harvard Law School. After graduating from Harvard in 1958, Winston spent a year clerking for Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, then joined a New York law firm that specialized in advising small, entrepreneurial companies. He made his first contacts with Oil Shale Corporation in 1961 and joined the company shortly thereafter.

As chief executive officer of Tosco, Winston made no effort to hide his unusual background in the humanities. He composed poetry in his spare time and encouraged his executives to memorize Bartlett's Quotations. Associates said that he conducted meetings not unlike a soft-spoken college professor conducting a class. But all the points that Winston earned on style would have gone for naught if the company had not fared well during his tenure. Despite his admission that Tosco had moved into the refining business rather later than it should have, the company nonetheless showed a tenfold increase in earnings between 1975 and 1980.

In 1980 the Atlantic Richfield Company sold its 60 percent share in Colony to Exxon Corporation for $300 million. Construction began at last on a processing plant that was scheduled to be completed in 1986 or 1987. Questions about the plant, however, soon presented themselves. Rising capital costs (from 1980 to 1982, Exxon and Tosco spent $400 million between them on Colony) and a levelling off in the price of crude oil raised doubts about the economic feasibility of the project. 

For its part, Tosco received $380 million worth of compensation from Exxon for its share of Colony. The initial agreement between the two companies had stipulated that Exxon would have to buy out its stake in the venture if it ever pulled out, and Tosco exercised that clause in the contract.

This attempt to recover from the Colony disaster was insufficient to forestall a major reorganization. With Tosco reeling from a first quarter loss of nearly $77 million and still saddled with more than $700 million in bank debt, Morton Winston stepped down as CEO in June 1983 and was replaced by Matthew Talbot. One of Talbot's first acts was to announce the layoffs of 15 top executives and the consolidation of Tosco's seven divisions into two.
The reorganization did little to ease Tosco's difficulties. Sagging crude oil and gasoline prices made things difficult for a company that suddenly found refining to be its sole source of support. Tosco lost over $677 million between 1983 and 1986, and, after buying out dissident shareholders inspired by Good, found itself so deeply in debt that its creditors decreed that it should hire investment banker Bear Stearns to help arrange a takeover. There were, however, no takers. The company's stock fell to $2.75 per share, down from its high of $45 in 1980. Feeling that a change of leadership was necessary, Tosco's directors forced Talbot to resign in June of 1986 and replaced him two months later with company chairman Clarence Frame. In the meantime, Tosco sold its Bakersfield refinery to Texaco for $22 million.
The next year 1988, Argus Energy, a Connecticut-based investment partnership, announced that it had acquired a 40-percent interest in Tosco. In 1989 the company acquired Seminole Fertilizer, but this did not stop the widespread takeover speculation and uncertainty over Tosco's status. Later that year, Argus Energy head man Thomas O'Malley, by now a Tosco director, succeeded Clarence Frame as chief executive officer.
One of the company's first actions under O'Malley was to announce that it was entertaining takeover bids. Tosco claimed that at least three multinational corporations made offers, but refused to announce the identity of the suitors. Informed speculation had it that one suitor was British Petroleum, which was said to be interested in establishing a presence on the West Coast through Tosco's Avon refinery. Neither party ever confirmed that this was so, however.
Tosco declared in 1991 that none of the offers it had received were satisfactory, and that it would remain independent. The company then declared that it would consolidate operations and cut administrative costs by closing down its headquarters in Santa Monica, California. Initially, Tosco declared that it would find a headquarters site in northern California, closer to the Avon refinery. But it ultimately wound up moving to Stamford, Connecticut, the home of Argus Energy.
Indeed, the move may have signalled that Tosco intended to shift geographical direction and develop a presence on the East Coast as significant as its presence on the West Coast. In December 1992 the company acquired Exxon's Bayway refinery[BUILT IN 1909], located in Linden, New Jersey, for $175 million. The acquisition made it the second-largest independent refiner in the United States.

COLONY OIL SHALE PROJECT
Over time the project was developed by a consortium of different companies until it was terminated by Exxon on 2 May 1982 a day which is known amongst locals as "Black Sunday".[1]

In 1969 Atlantic Richfield Company joined the project acquiring part of Tosco's stake.[5]

In 1974 Ashland Oil and Shell Oil Company joined the project.[7][9] In the late 1970s Standard Oil of Ohio, Cleveland Cliffs Iron Company, Shell and Ashaland Oil sold their shares to Atlantic Richfield Company.[7][10][11] As a result of these transactions Tosco owned 40% of shares and Atlantic Richfield Company owned 60% of shares in the project.
In 1980 Atlantic Richfield Company sold its share to Exxon for $300 million.[6] In 1981 the Colony Development started a construction of the commercial scale shale oil plant.[3] On 2 May 1982 Exxon announced the termination of the project because of low oil-prices and increased expenses laying off more than 2,000 workers resulting in the date becoming known among locals as "Black Sunday".[1][2][3] According to the shareholders agreement in a case of project termination Exxon had an obligation to buy out Tosco's shares. It paid $380 million worth of compensation.[6]


During its existence the project produced 270 thousand barrels (43×103 m3) of shale oil.[4][ WORTH ABOUT 5.4 MILLION AT $20 barrel]
At the moment of cancellation the estimated costs would exceed $5.5 billion in then-year dollars or about $10 billion in 2005 dollars.[3]

Oil Shale Corporation in 1955. It was headquartered in Los Angeles. Over time, Oil Shale made some strategic alliances that allowed it to grow, including joining with Atlantic Richfield in 1965 and acquiring the Signal Oil and Gas refinery in Bakersfield in 1970

In the News
In February of 1999, Tosco's Martinez refinery was the site of an explosion in which four workers died. In November of that year, Tosco's Wilmington refinery was the site of a fire in a holding tank. No injuries were reported, and the blaze was contained.
Tiny particles of asbestos enter into the atmosphere, however, as asbestos-containing transite ages and becomes prone to crumbling. Asbestos when it is in this state is called friable, which is defined as easy to pulverize. In addition, industrial kilns often contained friable asbestos in insulation linings.
The Problem with Friable Asbestos
Asbestos fibers, when friable, can be readily dispersed into the environment. Medical conditions like asbestosis and cancer can result from the inhalation of asbestos. Another uncommon, and generally fatal, disease linked to asbestos is mesothelioma. The pleural variety of mesothelioma, one which affects the tissue that lies between the lungs and the pleural cavity, is the most common. When the airborne particles settle on food or drinks and are subsequently swallowed, pericardial or peritoneal mesothelioma can result, although they are less common than pleural mesothelioma.
Increased pressure from the press, medical scientists and citizen groups forced the creation of rules controlling how to use asbestos. The use of asbestos was more prevalent, however, when places like Tosco Corporation were built. Any asbestos that remains from then may still pose a health hazard if care is not taken during remodeling projects.
The Lurking Hazard of Asbestos
Asbestos-related diseases, unlike most work-related injuries, which are readily observed and known about soon after the incident, can take many, many years to develop. When a former employee starts showing symptoms such as breathlessness, pain in the chest or abdomen and chronic coughing, his or her physician might not immediately recognize asbestos exposure as a cause, leading to a delay in diagnosis. Men and women who were employed by or lived near oil refineries like Tosco Corporation's California facilities therefore should ask their doctors for mesothelioma information. Furthermore, spouses of these people are also in danger, as unless strict decontamination protocols, including the use of workplace-only clothing and on-site showers, were enforced, it was all too common for personnel to bring particles of asbestos on their skin, in their hair, or on their clothes. Mesothelioma surgery is available to some patients and can improve the quality of life.

Federal Investigation of Tosco Refinery Fire Finds Flawed Management Supervision

(Washington, DC - March 28, 2001) A fire at Tosco's Avon refinery in Martinez, California, could have been prevented by better management supervision of safety, according to the final report of the U.S. Chemical Safety & Hazard Investigation Board (CSB). The report culminates an exhaustive two-year investigation of the 1999 petroleum fire that claimed the lives of four workers. The Avon refinery was acquired by UDS Corporation last year.
According to Board Member Irv Rosenthal, "Better management of job planning and execution could have prevented this tragedy. Our investigation uncovered two root causes of the accident. First, Avon refinery management did not have an effective process for assessing the dangers of maintenance operations and implementing needed safeguards. Second, neither the parent Tosco Corporation nor the facility management had investigated or corrected a pattern of serious unsafe practices at the Avon refinery."
The incident occurred on February 23, 1999, two years after an explosion at the refinery killed one and injured 46 others. Management deficiencies were also a significant factor in that incident, according to a federal report.
The 1999 incident occurred as workers attempted to remove and replace a leaky petroleum pipe which was attached to an operating oil distillation tower, known as a fractionator. Over a 13-day period prior to the accident, workers had repeatedly tried to isolate and drain the pipe, but leaking and corroded shut-off valves hampered their efforts. At the time of the incident, the pipe still contained a significant volume of pressurized naphtha, a highly flammable petroleum mixture similar to gasoline. While workers were in the process of replacing the pipe, the naphtha was released and burst into flame, killing the four workers. At the time of the fire, workers were p

          Report: Odell Beckham Jr. traded to Cleveland Browns      Cache   Translate Page      

CLEVELAND (AP) — Odell Beckham Jr. is about to run a deep route out of New Jersey and straight to Cleveland.

The superstar wide receiver is bound for the Browns to be a target for quarterback Baker Mayfield as the center piece of a blockbuster trade, two people familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Tuesday night.

The Browns are sending a first- and third-round pick in 2019 along with safety Jabrill Peppers to the Giants for Beckham, one of the NFL's top players, said the people who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because league rules prohibit teams from announcing trades until 4 p.m. Wednesday.

The deal is conditional on both players passing physicals.

With the Browns, Beckham will be reunited with receiver Jarvis Landry, a close friend and teammate at LSU. He'll also give Mayfield an elite weapon, and his arrival could vault the Browns, who went 7-8-1 last season after not winning a game in 2017, into legitimate championship contenders.

Rumors of a possible deal have swirled for weeks, with several Browns players teasing a major move by Cleveland general manager John Dorsey on social media. Dorsey pulled it off, bringing a major talent to accelerate his attempt to rebuild the Browns into consistent winners. Cleveland hasn't been to the playoffs since 2002.

The trade is the second major one involving a star wide receiver in four days as the Pittsburgh Steelers recently sent Antonio Brown to the Oakland Raiders.

While Beckham is immensely talented, there is some baggage as he can be temperamental and difficult. He was suspended for one game for his on-field battles with Carolina cornerback Josh Norman . He also comes off two injury-plagued years. Before last season, he became the league's highest-paid receiver with a five-year, $90 million contract extension.

He played five seasons in New York, making the Pro Bowl in his first three. He was the AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2014.

It's the second trade completed in the past week by the Giants and Browns. Cleveland sent guard Kevin Zeitler to New York for edge rusher Olivier Vernon, who will now play on the opposite side from Pro Bowler Myles Garrett.

The Giants had been reluctant to trade Beckham, with GM Dave Gettleman insisting over the past few months that the club did not sign him to the historic deal in late August to trade him. But the Browns were persistent and Dorsey, who has done a phenomenal job remolding the Browns since coming to Cleveland at the end of 2017, came up with a package the Giants simply couldn't resist.

"John Dorsey is officially a genius..." tweeted Browns defensive back Damarious Randall.

And now new Browns coach Freddie Kitchens has another playmaker for Mayfield, the No. 1 overall pick last year who had a dazzling debut season in which he set the NFL record for touchdown passes by a rookie.

Kitchens will have to try to keep Beckham in check, something Giants coach Pat Shurmur struggled to do. Early last season, with the Giants off to another bad start, Beckham seemed upset with his role in Shurmur's new offense and said quarterback Eli Manning was not capable of throwing deep passes.

Mayfield and Beckham are already tight; they spent part of last summer working out in California with Landry, who has been campaigning since he arrived in Cleveland for his former college teammate to join him.

When news of the agreement broke, Mayfield posted a photo on Twitter of him shaking hands with Beckham. "Movement" was the caption.

The Browns have had a busy offseason, signing troubled running back Kareem Hunt to a one-year contract, trading for Vernon and agreeing to a three-year, $39 million deal with defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson.

Many were expecting the Giants to take a step forward after going 5-11 in Shurmur's first season. They were looking to improve their offensive line, get some pass rushers and shore up the defense, which struggled in coordinator James Bettcher's switch to a 3-4 front.

In the past week, the next step has turned into a rebuild.

Vernon was dealt, the team did not put a franchise tag on safety Landon Collins — the catalyst of the defense and leading tackler each of the last four seasons is about to sign with NFC East rival Washington.

With the trade of Beckham, the offense has lost its top playmaker, although one could argue the Giants started shifting that role to halfback Saquon Barkley last season. Beckham beat out Mayfield for Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Complicating the situation: The Giants haven't figured out their quarterback situation. Eli Manning is 38 and the team has only made the playoffs once since winning the Super Bowl in February 2012.

But the Giants have three of the top 37 draft picks in April, and 12 overall.


          Flu season is on the rise, and a more severe strain dominates: What you need to know      Cache   Translate Page      

JamesBrey/iStock(NEW YORK) -- Since the start of 2019, influenza has been steadily on the rise in the U.S., with the number of new cases currently above the national baseline. And while this flu season has not been quite as severe as seasons past, there has been a recent uptick in a less common flu strain, the H3N2 virus, now accounting for over 50 percent of new cases, according to recent data from the CDC.

There are two main groups of influenza viruses: influenza A and influenza B. The H3N2 strain belongs to the influenza A family.

“The H3N2 strain does appear to be more severe,” says Dr. Olaoluwa Fayanju, senior medical director of Oak Street Health in Cleveland, Ohio. “In addition to the typical symptoms of flu, which include fevers, chills, body aches, and rigors [shaking chills], it additionally has the potential of causing several severe complications, including very high fevers up to 103 or 104 degrees Fahrenheit.”

Dr. Fayanju also notes that people over 65 are at particularly high risk for complications. “The vulnerability caused by a flu infection allows other systemic diseases to take hold,” he says. These include diabetes, stroke, pneumonia, heart attacks, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and sepsis.

Populations at risk


Everyone is at risk, especially those who have not yet been vaccinated. However, as with the more common H1N1 virus, the elderly and very young children are at increased risk of developing complications. According to Dr. Fayanju, this is because young children have not been in the world long enough to develop the antibodies, or any kind of immunity to these viruses. People with chronic diseases, included diabetes, COPD and heart disease are also at increased risk of developing complications if they become infected.

What you can do to prevent infection

“Number one: get vaccinated,” says Dr. Fayanju. Even if you have not yet been vaccinated this season, it is not too late.

Dr. Fayanju emphasizes how important it is, especially with the uptick in this new, more severe strain.

“The flu vaccine includes an amalgam of subtypes and variants of influenza A and B, and is developed by scientists worldwide,” said Dr. Fayanju.

In previous years, the flu vaccine has been less effective against the H3N2 strain, according to the CDC. However, the flu vaccination this season appears to demonstrate similar effectiveness on H3N2 as it does with other strains. Dr. Fayanju also recommends other actions to prevent getting sick:

1. Wash your hands frequently with soap or hand sanitizer. “This is very important. I joke with my daughters to hum the happy birthday song for 30 seconds,” which is how long you need to thoroughly wash your hands of any pathogens. This is especially important after you touch surfaces that could be contaminated with flu, such as after taking public transportation. Avoid touching your mouth, eyes, or nose before you wash your hands.

2. Get lots of sleep, at least 6-8 hours per night

3. Stay hydrated

4. Stay active: exercise is a great way to stay healthy

5. Eat healthy foods

Predictions for the rest of the season


Each week, the CDC comes out with weekly flu statistics from across the country. Many experts think we may be hitting the peak of flu cases now, according to Dr. Fayanju, but with the recent increase in cases of H3N2, it is more difficult to determine how long the season will last. Therefore, it is important to get vaccinated if you have not already, to keep an eye out if you develop any symptoms of the flu, and to contact your doctor if you do.

"In Berkeley, California back in the late '70s, my then-brother-in-law Neil Sheehan and I decided to start a band," Satriani said. "It would be a power pop trio with me on guitar and Neil managing and writing lyrics. We sought out a drummer and a frontman/bassist, and in December of '79 we found them playing on the local Bay Area scene. "Our lead vocalist/bassist Andy Milton was from Cleveland, Ohio. He was 6 feet tall, good looking and had a voice like a modern-day Elvis. "Our drummer Jeff Campitelli was fresh out of high school. A local phenom who could groove like Charlie Watts but with a new ferocious energy that would help propel the band into the burgeoning New Wave music scene. "We called ourselves THE SQUARES, or sometimes just SQUARES. There were other bands with the same name but we were determined to get to home base first and claim the name. That never happened. We were part VAN HALEN and part EVERLY BROTHERS. A mix of heavy metal, rock 'n' roll, punk and new wave. We were hard to pin down and categorize, which is most likely why we never 'made it.' "But as we were trying our best to get a record deal and become superstars, we had a lot of good times, and we laid down some seriously good music. We were ahead of our time, which, in this case, is another way of saying we were out of step with what people were looking for back then. "Ultimately, I left the band I started to pursue a solo career. It was gut\-wrenching to walk away from something I put all my heart and soul into, but, as it turned out, it was the right thing to do." The demos on "Best Of The Early '80s Demos" were recorded and mixed by the band's then-sound engineer John Cuniberti. The recordings have now been restored, digitized and remixed by Cuniberti. "We've restored the original recordings, brought them into the digital world, and with loving hands and ears, John has remixed the best of what we did in the studio," Satriani said. "They sound better than ever. John was careful to preserve the band's original intent with regards to song arrangements, sound and vibe, and in some cases, extremely creative mix ideas.

          Museu de Nova York dedicará exposição a instrumentos do rock and roll      Cache   Translate Page      

Mais de 130 instrumentos tocados pelo cantor Chuck Berry serão expostos a partir de 8 de abril. Objetos de Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan e Jimi Hendrix também fazem parte do acervo. Imagem de 15 de abril de 2013 mostra Chuck Berry em show em Montevidéu, no Uruguai Pablo Porciuncula / AFP Photo O Museu Metropolitano (MET) de Nova York apresentará a partir do dia 8 de abril a maior exposição em um museu de arte dedicada totalmente aos icônicos instrumentos do rock and roll, informou a instituição nesta terça-feira (12) . A exibição "Play it Loud: Instruments of Rock and Roll" contará com mais de 130 instrumentos de entre os anos 1939 e 2017, que foram tocados por lendários artistas como o cantor Chuck Berry, pioneiro do gênero, conhecido como "o pai do rock". Outras estrelas que marcarão presença através de seus instrumentos são Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Lady Gaga, Elvis Presley, Prince, Bruce Springsteen e Ringo Starr, entre muitas outras estrelas. O público terá a chance, por exemplo, de ver a "Blackie", como Clapton chamava sua guitarra, ou a "Love Drops" de Hendrix, pintada pelo próprio artista, e a Frankenstein de Eddie Van Halen ou a "Lobo" de Jerry García. "Play it Loud: Instruments of Rock and Roll" explorará um dos movimentos mais influentes do século XX e os objetos que tornaram a música possível, como a primeira guitarra elétrica que Berry tocou de 1957 até cerca de 1963 e usada para gravar "Johnny B. Goode", uma das canções míticas do artista, que morreu em março de 2017 aos 90 anos. Initial plugin text Também será exposta a guitarra de Keith Richard, dos Rolling Stones, conhecida por ter sido usada quando o grupo se apresentou no Ed Sullivan Show em 1956 e depois pintada à mão pelo próprio guitarrista. O público que comparecer ao Museu Metropolitano também poderá ver o contrabaixo de James Jamerson, provavelmente usado em muitos dos sucessos da gravadora Motown, ou o piano, feito à medida para Lady Gaga, que a cantora usou durante sua interpretação de "Artpop", no Tonight Show com Jimmy Fallon. A exposição, organizada por temas e em conjunto com o Salão da Fama do Rock and Roll, também mostrará como os artistas criaram seus sons individuais. Haverá cartazes, peças de roupa e vídeos de apresentações que ilustrarão componentes fundamentais do estilo visual do movimento musical e seu impacto. "A 'Play It Loud' celebra um capítulo de formação da arte e da cultura no século XX e os extraordinários objetos que serão mostrados expressam a inovação, a experimentação, a paixão e a rebeldia no coração do rock and roll", declarou Max Hollein, diretor do museu. Em novembro, a exposição viajará para o Salão da Fama do Rck and Roll em Cleveland, Ohio.

          Commenti su NBA, Marcus Morris sulla leadership di Kyrie Irving di Giorgio      Cache   Translate Page      
Effettivamente qualcosa è cambiato. Irving gioca di più sul lato debole e si vede. In questo modo lui è più pericoloso, perchè si trova più facilmente in situazione di 1 contro 1, dove nessuno può tenerlo e con Smart e Hayward da play la squadra gioca decisamente meglio. Limitando i pick and roll tra Irving e Horford e le situazioni in cui Kyre fa i giochi di prestigio col palleggio dalla linea del tiro libero, con tutti i compagni fermi a non saper che fare, i Celtics sono molto più dinamici e pericolosi in attacco. Anche Lebron lo diceva sempre, che Kyre non era un play e che giocando da guardia era immarcabile, motivo per cui Cleveland faceva giocare play Chalmers, Dellavedova, Calderon, Deron Williams, (non certo il top della lega), prima che Lebron decise definitivamente di pensarci lui. Tra l'altro è uno dei motivi per cui Irving ha chiesto la cessione ai Cavs.. Quindi se ora è disposto a giocare nel modo più ottimale per Boston, per il bene della squadra e per provare a vincere, è merito di Brad Stevens ma soprattutto è merito suo!
          Bradley Roby Will Sign One-Year, $10 Million Deal with Houston Texans, Per Report      Cache   Translate Page      
After five seasons with the Denver Broncos, Bradley Roby is set to continue his NFL career with a new team.

NFL Network's James Palmer reported Tuesday that Roby, who played at Ohio State from 2010-13, has agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract with the Houston Texans.

While the NFL's free agency negotiation period began Monday, Roby's deal with the Texans cannot become official until Wednesday, when the new league year begins.

In five seasons with the Broncos, Roby appeared in 79 games with 29 starts, recording 236 total tackles, 60 pass deflections, seven interceptions, seven forced fumbles, three sacks and two defensive touchdowns. He started a career-high 15 games for the Broncos, serving as their No. 2 cornerback.

The Broncos opted to part ways with Roby in free agency this year, however, agreeing to a three-year, $33 million contract with Kareem Jackson – who played for the Texans last year – to replace him at cornerback.

Now, Roby is likely in line to be the Texans' No. 2 cornerback in 2019 opposite Johnathan Joseph.

Other teams that showed interest in Roby included the Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders, according to Palmer, but ultimately, he chose to join the Texans. Roby told Mike Klis of 9News in Denver that he turned down a three-year offer from the Steelers as well as a one-year offer from the 49ers, choosing to take a one-year deal from the Texans with the goal of earning a bigger contract next offseason.

Roby is the first former Ohio State player who has been reported to agree to a contract with a new NFL team since the free agency negotiation period began Monday. Carlos Hyde signed with the Chiefs over the weekend, but that came after he was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars; Johnathan Hankins re-signed with the Raiders on Sunday, while the Steelers announced Tuesday that Ryan Shazier will remain under contract for the 2019 season, even though he will be unable to play as he continues to recover from a spinal injury.


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nick Bosa, DE

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

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

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

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

Dwayne Haskins, QB

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

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

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

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

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

Parris Campbell, WR

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

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

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

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

Dre’Mont Jones, DT

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

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

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

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

Michael Jordan, OL

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

Terry McLaurin, WR

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

Isaiah Prince, OT

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

Mike Weber, RB

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

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

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

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


          Skull Session: The Beginning of Urban Meyer's Lengthy TV Career, Ranking Ohio State's Draftable Receivers, and E.J. Liddell Gets Player of the Year Nod      Cache   Translate Page      

The basketball team re-added a large human to its roster, and the football team added a commitment from an even larger human.

Monday, you weren't too bad.

ICYMI

Word of the Day: Daedal.

 THE NEXT LEE CORSO? Urban Meyer is officially hopping back into television, but this team it doesn't sound very temporary. It sounds like he's about to be the face of a network, at least according to Fox Sports president Mark Silverman.

From Doug Lesmerises of Cleveland.com:

“Obviously, with Urban, before we went down this road, he was extremely interested in the next phase of his career,” Silverman told me Monday by phone from Los Angeles. “He was extremely interested in working at Fox specifically. And we believe this is going to be a long-term next phase of Urban’s career. I think judging from his track record, he’s going to excel and we’re thrilled to have him excel on Fox.

”This is not a short-term project."

...

“Urban has star appeal that as a broadcaster you’re always looking for," Silverman said. "For someone at this stage of their career, where it’s just first ending, he has such a big name across the landscape. You can’t really think of of anyone other than (Nick) Saban that has the success and the notoriety.

“I think he’s going to bring credibility and knowledge that is unique and I think he’s going to fit in really well with the other group and I think it’ll make for a compelling show.”

A substantial portion of the Internet lost its mind at this news, assuming this was the first step to Meyer taking a new coaching job, but I don't really get it.

First off, I don't really believe he's ever going to coach again (and it doesn't sound like Fox does, either). But even if he did, I wouldn't be even slightly bothered. He came to Ohio State, won more than 90 percent of his games, never lost to Michigan, had an undefeated season and a national title, and left the program better than he found it. If he wants to go coach elsewhere now, cool. Best of luck!

The most interesting thing about that article was how Silverman responded to Meyer remaining on staff at Ohio State while working for Fox.

He’s not in any capacity with the football program. He’s working for the university, but he’s not involved really with the football program is any kind of official capacity.”

That's a creative way to describe the guy who was standing at the 50-yard line of Ohio State's practice literally last week.

 HOW DO YOU CHOOSE? I have a feeling all three Buckeye receivers are going to make teams happy this draft season, but the Internet loves rankings, so Brad Kelly of The Draft Network took a stab at ranking Parris Campbell, Terry McLaurin and Johnnie Dixon.

From Brad Kelly of The Draft Network:

Parris Campbell was the most productive wide receiver for the Buckeyes this season, with 90 receptions for 1,063 yards. Terry McLaurin posted 701 yards and 11 touchdowns while Johnnie Dixon collected 669 yards and 8 touchdowns, respectively. Even with the lesser numbers, I view McLaurin to be the best NFL prospect, followed by Campbell and Dixon. All three should and likely will be drafted, but I expect the NFL to be higher on Parris Campbell than the other two.

Competing at the NFL Scouting Combine, McLaurin and Campbell had strikingly similar athleticism. On film, McLaurin did a better job utilizing that athleticism to win vertically, posted an insane 20 yards per catch last season. With 11 touchdowns on just 35 receptions, he was a big play waiting to happen. At the Senior Bowl, he showed exceptional route running throughout all portions of the field. With how he abuses press coverage and has dynamic qualities after the catch, he’s a well-rounded, ascending receiver prospect.

...

While Campbell was the focal point of the Ohio State receiving attack, he was barely asked to attack vertically. This was the main factor that lead to his 90 receptions this season. An underneath role is easily replaceable in the NFL, and Campbell's projection hinges on whether or not he has the potential to be a factor down the field. While he has the speed to do so, he lacks the refinement to stack defensive backs and too often fails to win in contested spots. His inconsistent hands can bite him a bit too often, and that problem could become exponential with NFL defensive backs covering him tighter.

...

Johnnie Dixon is no slouch himself, as the primary slot receiver had a dynamic showing at Scouting Combine as well. He’s built well in his frame, and has more than enough straight-line speed and explosiveness to hold up at the next level. Dixon had flashes of potential as a deep threat as well, but wasn't as utilized there as he could have been. Despite being a bit buried on the Ohio State depth chart, he undoubtedly has NFL-level traits. He would have been a premier receiver on most college teams, and will be an option on Day 3 of the NFL Draft.

Urban Meyer claimed for like three years that all three of those guys were future NFL players and I called bullshit every single time. Yet, here we are.

To be fair, I maintain that none of them aside from maybe Parris Campbell resembled anything close to NFL prospects even before this season, so it's not like I was crazy.

I'm sure the air-heavy offense led by the best passer in program history helped them, especially in terms of production, but NFL teams didn't magically become high on these guys because of that.

They're climbing draft boards because they became elite route runners with great releases at the line of scrimmage, know how to use their God-given speed and use their hands effectively in route running.

That's all on them as well as the great coaching from Brian Hartline and Keenan Bailey.

 ILLINOIS PLAYER OF THE YEAR. Turns out, the lowest-rated player in Ohio State's incoming hoops recruiting class can absolutely ball.

E.J. Liddell was named the PrepHoopsIllinois Player of the Year yesterday after an absolutely dominating senior season.

From Scott Burgess of PrepHoops.com:

He essentially ended the debate for this award and many others with his play at the Highland Shootout against Vashon.

Liddell was the considerable favorite for Mr. Basketball coming into this contest.  IT IS OVER!  Liddell will repeat as Illinois Mr. Basketball and had a defining performance against the best team in St. Louis on Saturday night.  He had a stretch in the second half that was absolutely incredible!  Swatting shots, high pointing rebounds, scoring off the bounce, and the play of the day was when he threw the ball off the backboard to himself for a monster slam.  The development in Liddell’s face up game over the last year has taken his game to new heights.  He wins consistently off the dribble from the high-post.  Connected on a sick step back jumper out of the post.  Got to the foul line where he was money.  Defensively Liddell snatched rebounds with two hands all night and was a BEAST blocking shots!  So explosive off the floor.  He had 26 points (8-11 FG) (10-12 FT), 12 rebounds, and 7 blocks.  Ohio State is getting an impact player on day 1.

Different game, but if you'd like video evidence of what he can do, behold:

Dude finish that game with 27 points, 9 rebounds, 6 blocks and 7 assists. I don't even know how there's enough time in a high school basketball game to do all of that.

I've heard Mizzou folks are Zeke-level mad Liddell chose Ohio State over Missouri. And personally, that's music to my ears.

 SO YOU'RE SAYING THERE'S A CHANCE? If Kaleb Wesson's return to the team for some reason makes you extremely confident about Ohio State's chances in Big Ten or NCAA Tournaments, you could be one extremely ill-advised bet away from a big payday!

If you thought those were long odds, Ohio State's odds to win the national title are currently 250/1, the same as San Francisco, West Virginia, Arizona, Colorado and Davidson who aren't even really on the bubble.

But at least Ohio State still has better odds than Murray State, Bradley, Gardner-Webb and Liberty, who all sit at 500/1 despite already punching their tickets to the tournament.

 ROAMING ROBY. It seems like a former Ohio State cornerback is in high demand in the NFL. Shocking, I know.

Bradley Roby was a first-round pick in the 2014 draft, and has spent the past five years with the Denver Broncos. But now he's dipping his toe in the free agency waters and more than a few teams would like to acquire his services.

I wouldn't be pissed to see him play across from Denzel Ward or Gareon Conley, but the really shocking thing here is that the Saints haven't already signed him.

          Ray Allen MVP?      Cache   Translate Page

Ray Allen MVP?

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

Old dog, new tricks.



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Houston Texans sign safety Tashaun Gipson      Cache   Translate Page      

After losing two defensive backs to free agency, the Houston Texans made a move to offset those losses with the addition of a safety who played for a division rival last season.

Safety Tashaun Gipson played for the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2016-18, after four seasons in Cleveland, and has started 90 regular season games during a 98-game period.

Gipson is one of only five safeties in the NFL since 2012 to record at least 20 interceptions.

He started all 16 games in each of the three seasons with the Jags. The defensive back earned a Pro Bowl nod in 2014.

Gipson, a Dallas native, attended the University of Wyoming.

The Texans lost defensive backs Tyrann Mathieu (Chiefs) and Kareem Jackson (Broncos) and to free agency.

The team re-signed DE Angeleo Blackson, WR DeAndre Carter and DE Joel Heath.

The Texans extended qualifying offers to NT Brandon Dunn, K Ka'imi Fairbairn and LB Brennan Scarlett.

          An entrepreneur who's running for president explains how he'd give every American $1,000 a month and solve the 'fake news' problem      Cache   Translate Page      

Andrew Yang

  • Andrew Yang is an entrepreneur, author, and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.
  • He's passionate about providing every American with a universal basic income of $1,000 a month, saying that would help the working class adjust to an increasingly automated economy.
  • Yang recently spoke with INSIDER's politics editor, Anthony Fisher, about universal basic income, foreign policy, and his plans to support local journalism and battle "fake news," remake America's healthcare system, and overcome his low name recognition and get on the nationally televised debate stages starting in June.

Andrew Yang is seeking the 2020 Democratic nomination for president on a platform built on giving every American a universal basic income — which he called a "freedom dividend" — of $1,000 a month. His website outlines an unusually robust and specific set of policies on everything from healthcare to marijuana legalization to paying NCAA athletes.

Yang, 44, is an entrepreneur most notable for founding Venture for America, a fellowship program that matches recent college graduates with startups across the country. He's also the author of "The War on Normal People: The Truth about America's Disappearing Jobs and Why Universal Basic Income is Our Future."

Yang recently spoke with INSIDER's politics editor, Anthony Fisher, about universal basic income, foreign policy, and his plans to support local journalism and battle "fake news," remake America's healthcare system, and overcome low name recognition and get on the nationally televised debate stages starting in June.

Editor's note: This interview has been edited for length and clarity. You can watch a portion of it on "Business Insider Today."

Anthony Fisher: There's a number of high-profile Democratic candidates who are getting immediate, widespread media attention. How do you plan to compete with them?

Andrew Yang: The truth is most Americans are not paying any attention to the 2020 election right now. If they see anything, they just see a graphic with a whole crowd of faces on the TV screen. So people are going to start tuning in in earnest when the debates start, and I'm going to be there. And the great thing is this campaign's growing organically all the time, and we're going to peak when it's most important.

Read more: A Democrat running for president in 2020 is testing a basic income proposal by giving $1,000 per month to a family

Fisher: How do you plan on getting on the debate stage?

Yang: The Democratic National Committee has already announced that criteria to make the debate stage. We're going to meet both of them, and you only need to meet one.

The first criteria is polling at 1% either nationally or in the early states, and we're already polling at 1% nationally, according to Monmouth. And the second criteria is getting 65,000 individual contributors by May 15. We're at about 46,000. We're getting another 1,500 a day and should be past the 65,000-donor threshold in about a month.

So I'm going to be on the debate stage in June and July.

Andrew Yang 2020

Fisher: What's the one issue that you'd like to be known for?

Yang: We're in the midst of automating away the most common jobs in our economy. And the reason why Donald Trump's our president today is that we automated away 4 million manufacturing jobs in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Missouri, Iowa, all the swing states. And we're about to do the same thing to millions of retail jobs, call-center jobs, fast-food jobs, truck-driving jobs, and on and on.

So my signature policy proposal's that every American should receive $1,000 a month in a freedom dividend to be able to make adjustments for the future and manage this transition.

Fisher: So that's universal basic income. Why do you think that would be better than, say, a jobs guarantee?

Yang: Well, a universal basic income is much, much easier to administer and much more powerful and effective to getting resources into people's hands.

Let's say tomorrow the federal government said, "We're going to administer a jobs guarantee." Does that mean millions of Americans will wake up and say, "Oh, I know where I'm going: I'm going to go to that job." Of course not. You'd have to set up this massive bureaucracy and infrastructure. What are the jobs? What if someone doesn't like their job? What if someone's not working out? Is this really the way we want Americans to have to be able to feed themselves?

So if you're going to make a move and you're going to make it actually work on a reasonable timeframe, a universal basic income is a much more powerful and effective way to go.

Read more: Meet the Democratic businessman who wants to beat Trump in 2020 and give every American a basic income: 'Donald Trump gives entrepreneurs a bad name'

Fisher: You've proposed several initiatives built around massive cash infusions for journalism, especially local journalism. Can you talk a little bit about that?

Yang: Over 1,200 local newspapers have gone out of business in the past number of years because they relied upon classified ads that now no longer exist in the age of Craigslist. So the local papers die and then democracy does not function as well, because if you have no idea what's happening in your town, how can you vote? Studies have shown that in those situations voters tend to go more towards extremes, and democracy suffers. So if you believe in democracy, then you have to believe in local journalism.

Local journalism does not have any market support right now. We as a country should come together and say, "We need to find a new business model" — let's say a public-private partnership that's operating in conjunction with local organizations, perhaps the local library, perhaps some of the local businesses or the municipal government.

If we think journalism is important — if we think democracy's important — we should come up with a new sustainable runway for these newspapers.

Fisher: You've also proposed the creation of a Federal Communications Commission ombudsman that would punish news outlets for running "fake news." Can you talk a little bit about that?

Yang: If you look at the threats to our democracy, one of them is rampant misinformation.

It's one thing to make a mistake — we all make mistakes — but it's another thing to purposely try and misinform a segment of the American public to undermine our democracy. And right now, foreign actors are doing that. We know that the Russians have tens of thousands of bots that are just spreading various rumors.

We can't just throw up our hands and say, "Well, I guess that's just the way it's going to be." You need to have some sort of penalty for purposely spreading false information. The British already do this: They already have an ombudsman who comes and says, "This stuff was untrue, and you knew it was untrue," and then there's some sort of penalty associated with that.

Fisher: The FCC inherently has a political tilt. It has five commissioners, and whichever party the president is in, three will be from that party. What would you say to someone concerned about the idea of an FCC ombudsman being subject to political interests and biases?

Yang: You have to gauge various risk-reward scenarios. What's the greater risk at this point: that we just aren't sure what's true, or that there's going to be some government agency that somehow becomes overly politicized to a point where it somehow washes out all objective journalism? I suggest the first one is a much more real concern right now. And at this point with the internet, it'd be very, very hard for any government agency to do more than just nibble at the edges of a particular set of political viewpoints.

Fisher: Even under a Trump administration which regularly disparages legitimate news outlets as fake news? If Trump had an ombudsman available to him, would there be the possibility of abusing that authority?

Yang: I struggle to see it. Let's say that this ombudsman then went and said, "Hey, New York Times, you reported on this," and The New York Times was like, "It's actually true." It's not that there's no process involved — as long as you can present the facts and say, "Our reporting is objective," then it's not like you're just going to be arbitrarily punished. As you said, it's not perfect.

Fisher: There was a BuzzFeed News story earlier this year that seemed to implicate the president in impeachable crimes. Then Robert Mueller's office took the extraordinary step of saying the story is not accurate. If Trump had the power to say that is fake news, again, could an FCC ombudsman for fake news be something that could be abused by a bad actor in office?

Yang: I think that the potential for that sort of abuse is much lower than people imagine. This is not an age where there are three or four TV networks — at this point, there are tens of thousands of news outlets, and it would be virtually impossible for the government to meaningfully suppress journalism.

Fisher: You've proposed sunsetting old laws. Can you talk a little bit about why this issue is important to you?

Yang: America's legal code is filled with laws that are written and then never go away. Some of these laws stopped making sense years ago, but there's just no mechanism to reexamine them and say, "Does this regulation still make sense? Does it still serve a useful public purpose?"

So if laws are important, then they would be renewed. But if a law has outlived its usefulness, then there should be some kind of mechanism for us to examine it and say, "This law shouldn't be on the books anymore because it doesn't make any sense."

Fisher: You're for "Medicare for All," but you've also described the ideal system as one that provides "holistic care." Can you explain what that is?

Yang: We're in the worst of all situations, where we're spending twice as much as other countries on healthcare for the worst results.

As a CEO and business owner, I know our healthcare system makes it harder to hire. It makes it harder to treat people as full-time employees, because you always want to just treat them as contractors. It makes it harder to start a business. It makes it harder for people to switch jobs.

Right now it's this massive impediment on our economy, and it's immoral, the fact that if we get sick or injured we're more stressed out about trying to navigate the system than we are with getting well. We need to move to a single-payer system, particularly because right now 94% of new jobs are temporary gig or contract jobs — they don't have healthcare benefits. So tying healthcare to employment makes less and less sense.

In terms of holistic medicine, there are different approaches to getting well. And it's not that there's any one discipline that has all the answers. So if someone wants to seek care from a practitioner or a discipline that may work for them, they should have the freedom to do so.

Fisher: To touch on foreign policy: We still have a military presence in Afghanistan, Iraq, as well as a small presence in Syria. As president, how would you manage the military in these hotspots?

Yang: I think we have to examine each of them, and if we have forces there, we ask, "What are they accomplishing? What is the timeframe? How does it improve upon our ability to achieve certain goals?" And then if you reach a conclusion that we are not actually going to further our goals, then you pull them out to the extent possible.

In the big picture, the US has deluded itself into thinking it could get things done in various parts of the world that have ended up costing hundreds of billions of dollars and thousands of American lives and tens of thousands of civilian lives, sometimes to very unclear benefits. So one of my big ideas is going to try to be more restrained and judicious in our foreign policy.

I think our foreign policy actually reflects how we're doing at home, and we're not doing well at home. If you look at our numbers domestically, our life expectancy is declining for the last three years because of a surge in suicides and drug overdoses — like, the depths of despair, mental-health crises. We're falling apart and disintegrating at home. And so our foreign policy ends up seeming unreliable and erratic to many of our long-standing allies, and those things are very much connected.

To me, the way we become stronger abroad and have a more sustained foreign-policy agenda is if we're more strong and whole at home.

Fisher: Another foreign-policy hotspot that is becoming an issue for quite a few 2020 candidates is the crisis in Venezuela. As president, would you recognize Juan Guaidó as Venezuela's interim president?

Yang: My goal as president would be to help assist the Venezuelan people in any way we can — any sort of humanitarian intervention that would help ease the suffering.

I do not think it's the US's place to engage in regime change. Our track record on making decisions for other countries is very, very uneven at best. So certainly if there's anything we can do to support on a humanitarian level, I'd be eager to do it, but I don't think we should be choosing other nations' leaders.

Fisher: To be clear, the National Assembly, which is basically the last legitimately democratically elected body in Venezuela, decided that Guaidó is the legitimate leader of the country. And the United States, along with about 50 other countries, have agreed to recognize him as such. As US president, would you recognize Guaidó as Venezuela's interim president?

Yang: Yes, I'd recognize him. I just wouldn't militarily intervene to depose Nicolás Maduro and insert him.

Andrew Yang Iowa.JPG

Fisher: Most Americans aren't familiar with you at this point. What do you want them to know about you as a person?

Yang: I think the main thing is that I'm a parent. I'm running for office because I see what's happening to our country in terms of artificial intelligence's near-term impact on American workers, and I don't want to raise my kids in a country that is falling apart — I want to raise them in a country that I'm still excited about and proud of, that resembles the country I grew up in myself and the country my parents came here to form a better life for myself and my brother.

The big theme of this era is that if we continue to see ourselves as inputs into a machine of capital efficiency, we're going to lose on an epic, historic, catastrophic scale to artificial intelligence, software, robots, and things that can do things much more cheaply and efficiently than any of us can. It's not that a radiologist was somehow bad at school; it's just that artificial intelligence can see shades of gray that human eyes cannot and can reference millions of films.

So we're in a race right now that we cannot win, and our only path forward is to start reshaping our economy around us — make it so that the economy serves us instead of us being inputs into the machine.

If we succeed in this, then we can give rise to a human-centered economy, a trickle-up economy, from people, families, and communities up. It would be an immense catalyst to entrepreneurship and arts and creativity and service and humanities and nurturing and everything else — if we were just to start valuing ourselves intrinsically and declare a dividend for all Americans of $1,000 a month.

          An entrepreneur who's running for president explains how he'd give every American $1,000 a month and solve the 'fake news' problem      Cache   Translate Page      

Andrew Yang

  • Andrew Yang is an entrepreneur, author, and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.
  • He's passionate about providing every American with a universal basic income of $1,000 a month, saying that would help the working class adjust to an increasingly automated economy.
  • Yang recently spoke with INSIDER's politics editor, Anthony Fisher, about universal basic income, foreign policy, and his plans to support local journalism and battle "fake news," remake America's healthcare system, and overcome his low name recognition and get on the nationally televised debate stages starting in June.

Andrew Yang is seeking the 2020 Democratic nomination for president on a platform built on giving every American a universal basic income — which he called a "freedom dividend" — of $1,000 a month. His website outlines an unusually robust and specific set of policies on everything from healthcare to marijuana legalization to paying NCAA athletes.

Yang, 44, is an entrepreneur most notable for founding Venture for America, a fellowship program that matches recent college graduates with startups across the country. He's also the author of "The War on Normal People: The Truth about America's Disappearing Jobs and Why Universal Basic Income is Our Future."

Yang recently spoke with INSIDER's politics editor, Anthony Fisher, about universal basic income, foreign policy, and his plans to support local journalism and battle "fake news," remake America's healthcare system, and overcome low name recognition and get on the nationally televised debate stages starting in June.

Editor's note: This interview has been edited for length and clarity. You can watch a portion of it on "Business Insider Today."

Anthony Fisher: There's a number of high-profile Democratic candidates who are getting immediate, widespread media attention. How do you plan to compete with them?

Andrew Yang: The truth is most Americans are not paying any attention to the 2020 election right now. If they see anything, they just see a graphic with a whole crowd of faces on the TV screen. So people are going to start tuning in in earnest when the debates start, and I'm going to be there. And the great thing is this campaign's growing organically all the time, and we're going to peak when it's most important.

Fisher: How do you plan on getting on the debate stage?

Yang: The Democratic National Committee has already announced that criteria to make the debate stage. We're going to meet both of them, and you only need to meet one.

The first criteria is polling at 1% either nationally or in the early states, and we're already polling at 1% nationally, according to Monmouth. And the second criteria is getting 65,000 individual contributors by May 15. We're at about 46,000. We're getting another 1,500 a day and should be past the 65,000-donor threshold in about a month.

So I'm going to be on the debate stage in June and July.

Andrew Yang 2020

Fisher: What's the one issue that you'd like to be known for?

Yang: We're in the midst of automating away the most common jobs in our economy. And the reason why Donald Trump's our president today is that we automated away 4 million manufacturing jobs in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Missouri, Iowa, all the swing states. And we're about to do the same thing to millions of retail jobs, call-center jobs, fast-food jobs, truck-driving jobs, and on and on.

So my signature policy proposal's that every American should receive $1,000 a month in a freedom dividend to be able to make adjustments for the future and manage this transition.

Fisher: So that's universal basic income. Why do you think that would be better than, say, a jobs guarantee?

Yang: Well, a universal basic income is much, much easier to administer and much more powerful and effective to getting resources into people's hands.

Let's say tomorrow the federal government said, "We're going to administer a jobs guarantee." Does that mean millions of Americans will wake up and say, "Oh, I know where I'm going: I'm going to go to that job." Of course not. You'd have to set up this massive bureaucracy and infrastructure. What are the jobs? What if someone doesn't like their job? What if someone's not working out? Is this really the way we want Americans to have to be able to feed themselves?

So if you're going to make a move and you're going to make it actually work on a reasonable timeframe, a universal basic income is a much more powerful and effective way to go.

Read more: Meet the Democratic businessman who wants to beat Trump in 2020 and give every American a basic income: 'Donald Trump gives entrepreneurs a bad name'

Fisher: You've proposed several initiatives built around massive cash infusions for journalism, especially local journalism. Can you talk a little bit about that?

Yang: Over 1,200 local newspapers have gone out of business in the past number of years because they relied upon classified ads that now no longer exist in the age of Craigslist. So the local papers die and then democracy does not function as well, because if you have no idea what's happening in your town, how can you vote? Studies have shown that in those situations voters tend to go more towards extremes, and democracy suffers. So if you believe in democracy, then you have to believe in local journalism.

Local journalism does not have any market support right now. We as a country should come together and say, "We need to find a new business model" — let's say a public-private partnership that's operating in conjunction with local organizations, perhaps the local library, perhaps some of the local businesses or the municipal government.

If we think journalism is important — if we think democracy's important — we should come up with a new sustainable runway for these newspapers.

Fisher: You've also proposed the creation of a Federal Communications Commission ombudsman that would punish news outlets for running "fake news." Can you talk a little bit about that?

Yang: If you look at the threats to our democracy, one of them is rampant misinformation.

It's one thing to make a mistake — we all make mistakes — but it's another thing to purposely try and misinform a segment of the American public to undermine our democracy. And right now, foreign actors are doing that. We know that the Russians have tens of thousands of bots that are just spreading various rumors.

We can't just throw up our hands and say, "Well, I guess that's just the way it's going to be." You need to have some sort of penalty for purposely spreading false information. The British already do this: They already have an ombudsman who comes and says, "This stuff was untrue, and you knew it was untrue," and then there's some sort of penalty associated with that.

Fisher: The FCC inherently has a political tilt. It has five commissioners, and whichever party the president is in, three will be from that party. What would you say to someone concerned about the idea of an FCC ombudsman being subject to political interests and biases?

Yang: You have to gauge various risk-reward scenarios. What's the greater risk at this point: that we just aren't sure what's true, or that there's going to be some government agency that somehow becomes overly politicized to a point where it somehow washes out all objective journalism? I suggest the first one is a much more real concern right now. And at this point with the internet, it'd be very, very hard for any government agency to do more than just nibble at the edges of a particular set of political viewpoints.

Fisher: Even under a Trump administration which regularly disparages legitimate news outlets as fake news? If Trump had an ombudsman available to him, would there be the possibility of abusing that authority?

Yang: I struggle to see it. Let's say that this ombudsman then went and said, "Hey, New York Times, you reported on this," and The New York Times was like, "It's actually true." It's not that there's no process involved — as long as you can present the facts and say, "Our reporting is objective," then it's not like you're just going to be arbitrarily punished. As you said, it's not perfect.

Fisher: There was a BuzzFeed News story earlier this year that seemed to implicate the president in impeachable crimes. Then Robert Mueller's office took the extraordinary step of saying the story is not accurate. If Trump had the power to say that is fake news, again, could an FCC ombudsman for fake news be something that could be abused by a bad actor in office?

Yang: I think that the potential for that sort of abuse is much lower than people imagine. This is not an age where there are three or four TV networks — at this point, there are tens of thousands of news outlets, and it would be virtually impossible for the government to meaningfully suppress journalism.

Fisher: You've proposed sunsetting old laws. Can you talk a little bit about why this issue is important to you?

Yang: America's legal code is filled with laws that are written and then never go away. Some of these laws stopped making sense years ago, but there's just no mechanism to reexamine them and say, "Does this regulation still make sense? Does it still serve a useful public purpose?"

So if laws are important, then they would be renewed. But if a law has outlived its usefulness, then there should be some kind of mechanism for us to examine it and say, "This law shouldn't be on the books anymore because it doesn't make any sense."

Fisher: You're for "Medicare for All," but you've also described the ideal system as one that provides "holistic care." Can you explain what that is?

Yang: We're in the worst of all situations, where we're spending twice as much as other countries on healthcare for the worst results.

As a CEO and business owner, I know our healthcare system makes it harder to hire. It makes it harder to treat people as full-time employees, because you always want to just treat them as contractors. It makes it harder to start a business. It makes it harder for people to switch jobs.

Right now it's this massive impediment on our economy, and it's immoral, the fact that if we get sick or injured we're more stressed out about trying to navigate the system than we are with getting well. We need to move to a single-payer system, particularly because right now 94% of new jobs are temporary gig or contract jobs — they don't have healthcare benefits. So tying healthcare to employment makes less and less sense.

In terms of holistic medicine, there are different approaches to getting well. And it's not that there's any one discipline that has all the answers. So if someone wants to seek care from a practitioner or a discipline that may work for them, they should have the freedom to do so.

Fisher: To touch on foreign policy: We still have a military presence in Afghanistan, Iraq, as well as a small presence in Syria. As president, how would you manage the military in these hotspots?

Yang: I think we have to examine each of them, and if we have forces there, we ask, "What are they accomplishing? What is the timeframe? How does it improve upon our ability to achieve certain goals?" And then if you reach a conclusion that we are not actually going to further our goals, then you pull them out to the extent possible.

In the big picture, the US has deluded itself into thinking it could get things done in various parts of the world that have ended up costing hundreds of billions of dollars and thousands of American lives and tens of thousands of civilian lives, sometimes to very unclear benefits. So one of my big ideas is going to try to be more restrained and judicious in our foreign policy.

I think our foreign policy actually reflects how we're doing at home, and we're not doing well at home. If you look at our numbers domestically, our life expectancy is declining for the last three years because of a surge in suicides and drug overdoses — like, the depths of despair, mental-health crises. We're falling apart and disintegrating at home. And so our foreign policy ends up seeming unreliable and erratic to many of our long-standing allies, and those things are very much connected.

To me, the way we become stronger abroad and have a more sustained foreign-policy agenda is if we're more strong and whole at home.

Fisher: Another foreign-policy hotspot that is becoming an issue for quite a few 2020 candidates is the crisis in Venezuela. As president, would you recognize Juan Guaidó as Venezuela's interim president?

Yang: My goal as president would be to help assist the Venezuelan people in any way we can — any sort of humanitarian intervention that would help ease the suffering.

I do not think it's the US's place to engage in regime change. Our track record on making decisions for other countries is very, very uneven at best. So certainly if there's anything we can do to support on a humanitarian level, I'd be eager to do it, but I don't think we should be choosing other nations' leaders.

Fisher: To be clear, the National Assembly, which is basically the last legitimately democratically elected body in Venezuela, decided that Guaidó is the legitimate leader of the country. And the United States, along with about 50 other countries, have agreed to recognize him as such. As US president, would you recognize Guaidó as Venezuela's interim president?

Yang: Yes, I'd recognize him. I just wouldn't militarily intervene to depose Nicolás Maduro and insert him.

Fisher: Most Americans aren't familiar with you at this point. What do you want them to know about you as a person?

Yang: I think the main thing is that I'm a parent. I'm running for office because I see what's happening to our country in terms of artificial intelligence's near-term impact on American workers, and I don't want to raise my kids in a country that is falling apart — I want to raise them in a country that I'm still excited about and proud of, that resembles the country I grew up in myself and the country my parents came here to form a better life for myself and my brother.

          Ron Packard: The New David Brennan      Cache   Translate Page      
Not many people paid much attention to the passing of the torch, but when Ron Packard -- the infamous former owner of the oft-maligned K12, Inc. (whose diplomas aren't accepted by the NCAA) -- started buying up David Brennan's former White Hat Management empire in 2015, it didn't mark the end of an era.

It marked its continuation. (Except for the massive political contributions -- for now.)

A little background. Packard founded K12, Inc. and was paid millions to run the only school operation ever sold on the New York Stock Exchange -- a notoriously poor-performing online charter school operation that at the time of his departure was the nation's largest. Now he runs the Accel Schools chain in Ohio, which according to the latest data from the Ohio Department of Education operates 37 Ohio charter schools.

Tellingly, Accel started barely a handful of these schools. Nearly all were snatched up from mostly White Hat Management, including OHDELA -- long the cash cow of the White Hat operation, along with the dropout recovery Life Skills operation. And while Packard portrays himself as a turnaround guy, what he really seems to be is the education sector's Gordon Gecko -- an education corporate raider.

Accel recently took another page out of White Hat (which has dissolved into several small operations that run one or two Life Skills schools) and started splitting off some of its schools. Instead of operating all 37 under the single Accel Schools umbrella, now Accel schools in Akron, Canton, Columbus and Cleveland are run by splinter Accel Schools operators. 

Why would Packard do this?

Perhaps to boost the academic rating of the Accel Schools umbrella brand? 

See, prior to the splintering, Accel rated a D as a charter school operator, according to the state. This year, with those schools now run by "different" operators, the ones remaining under the umbrella Accel Schools operation got a C.

That's a higher grade than the D received each of the last three years by the revered Breakthrough Schools in Cleveland (a result I will examine more closely in a future post).

But see, here's the thing. In a recent story about how Ohio Charter Schools want a 22% raise from the state, Packard is quoted as saying, 
"Brick and mortar schools are a very low margin business."
This is what happens when you say you want to run schools like a business. You get guys talking about profit margins in education like they're restaurants or something.

But aside from that, this quote is straight Brennan. Remember K12, Inc.? The nation's largest online charter school operator that Packard founded and ran for many years?

Guess which state propped up his national operation? If you said, "Ohio", you'd be half right. Between Ohio and Pennsylvania's generosity with their taxpayers' money, Packard consistently reported to the SEC that about 1/4 of his company's total revenue came from those two states.

As he reported in his annual 10-K from 2012 (and other years around that time):
"In fiscal year 2012, we derived approximately 12% and 13% of our revenues, respectively, from the Ohio Virtual Academy and the Agora Cyber Charter School in Pennsylvania. In aggregate, these schools accounted for approximately 25% of our total revenues. If our contracts with either of these virtual public schools are terminated, the charters to operate either of these schools are not renewed or are revoked, enrollments decline substantially, funding is reduced, or more restrictive legislation is enacted, our business, financial condition and results of operations could be adversely affected."
He knows that in Ohio, there is a TON of profit to be made in the online charter school sector. In fact, there's enough for Ohio taxpayers to essentially subsidize an entire national operation.

Which is why he felt the need to qualify his "low margin business" quote to the PD to just the brick and mortar sector. And why he probably leaped at the chance to grab OHDELA from Brennan's fire sale.

But see, here's the problem. Brick and Mortar schools are not a very low margin business. We are told, even by charter school proponents, that they are a "non-profit" business. In fact, all charters are considered "non-profit" by the state.

Except the schools can hire sharks like Packard to run their operations. And Packard is allowed to make a profit. This profiteering hasn't led to billion dollar scandals or anything, has it?

Wait. Perhaps it has. 

Which is why Packard's growth and increased voice in Ohio should worry Ohio taxpayers who have been burned by 20 years of charter school profiteering.

This is why I'm so encouraged by House Speaker Larry Householder saying a few weeks ago that "those management entities, I believe should be nonprofit."

Not low profit margins. No profit margins.

Amen, brother. Amen.

          Ohio Charters need a 22% Raise? Really?      Cache   Translate Page      
Now that the Cleveland Plain Dealer has reported just how much more charter schools are demanding they be paid -- a staggering $2,000 per pupil -- I think it's fair to say that their request is a tall order.

If that increase had been granted this past school year, it would have cost the state another $208.8 million -- making the program cost taxpayers $1.1 billion.

How one could look at the above chart of state report card grades and call that increase justifiable, I have no idea. Especially when we are poised to have the most serious attempt in a decade at fixing school funding for the 90 percent of students attending local public schools.

Not only have Ohio charter schools not gotten appreciably better on the report card since House Bill 2 passed in 2015, but since the 2012-2013 school year, charter schools overall have received more Fs than all other grades combined on state report cards. This "House Bill 2 has fixed everything" mantra really bothers me. Even at the time, no one suggested that the fixes in HB 2 were a panacea. In many ways, the changes just caught us up to national norms.

Yet now those rather modest reforms are being used as justification for a massive new influx of your tax dollars.

Here's another complication: the average charter school spends about $400 more per student already. And they spend about $1,000 more per student on non-instructional administrative costs, eclipsing almost 25 percent of their total expenditure. So if they have another $2,000 per student to spend, their current spending patterns would place about $500 of that on administrators. The average school district would spend about half of that.

I hate to bring this up, but whenever charters ask for more money, I'm haunted by our past. As told in the groundbreaking and seminal report on Ohio's charter school roots, Akron Beacon Journal reporters Doug Oplinger and Dennis Willard -- using memos written by Akron businessman and Ohio school choice Godfather David Brennan -- described why Brennan switched from running voucher schools to charter schools:
"Why did Brennan give up on vouchers?
In his two Cleveland Hope schools, he was receiving more state aid per pupil than 85 percent of the public school children in Ohio. But it wasn’t enough to turn a profit.
Only nine weeks into the voucher program, Brennan began to lobby for a 44 percent increase -- or $1,100 -- in the value of vouchers. Brennan told the governor in writing that he was subsidizing his two voucher schools out of his own pocket. Some of that money came out of the Brennan Family Foundation, IRS records show.
In January 1998, Brennan wrote to Needles of the governor’s office and two new confidants -- state school board members Charles Byrne and Joseph Roman -- telling them that if the state didn’t raise the value of vouchers to an amount similar to charter-school funding, he was switching.
“I have indicated to you that the temptation to convert the operations at HOPE Central Academy and HOPE Tremont Academy is almost irresistible because of the higher funding from the community schools,” he told them.
In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Brennan gave a different reason. He said opponents of school choice made vouchers “a dirty word. Charters are a compromise to vouchers.”
But the numbers are revealing. By switching, he increased his state aid per pupil from about $3,000 in the voucher schools and $600 at Interfaith to at least $4,400 and possibly as high as $6,000. (emphasis added)"
Within a few short years of this switch, Brennan was the dominant charter school operator in Ohio and even the country on his way to becoming the single largest donor to Ohio Republicans the state has ever seen.

I know it's popular for charter proponents to pooh-pooh my and others' concerns about charters asking for more money. But as you can see, the history here isn't great. And when charters continue to not perform very well overall, and then demand pay raises over 22 percent, costing taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars on top of the nearly $1 billion they already spent on these schools, is it understandable why we balk at that suggestion?

Today, the Plain Dealer reported on an updated look at Ohio charter school performance from the Center for Research on Educational Outcomes (CREDO). The center, which is housed at the free market Hoover Institute at Stanford University, discovered that Ohio charter schools are performing about as poorly as ever.

"There is little to no progress in Ohio charter school performance," concluded CREDO Director Macke Raymond, whose comments several years ago about how the free market system hadn't worked in education caused quite a stir.

However, like most charter school analyses ever done in Ohio, CREDO did find pockets of success among brick-and-mortar charters, and blamed the overall stagnant performance on e-schools. Leave it to Aaron Churchill of the Fordham Institute to drive a truck through that mouse hole.

Here's how the PD reported it:
"After years of shortchanging charter students, lawmakers should finally move to fund brick-and-mortar charters equitably, helping to kick-start new-school formation and the rapid expansion of the state’s top-performing charters,” Churchill wrote.
Obviously trying to piggyback on his dubious claim that charters don't get enough money and have earned a raise from state lawmakers, Churchill really stretches out over his skis here. There are major caveats with CREDO's methodology (for a detailed breakdown, take a read here), but here is my major concern -- the group only looks at student growth.

That is one of MANY measures of a school's performance. And growth has always been an area where charters and districts perform more similarly. Districts still beat charters pretty well on the measure, but it's not quite the runaway contest that proficiency or graduation rates are, for example.

Here's another thing: Ohio's been artificially deflating school district performance for years now, dragging down their overall grades to better comport with historic charter school performance. Don't believe me? Take a look at the percentage of grades each sector has received each year since the state started using the A-F system in the 2012-2013 school year.

 What you can see is that since Ohio started changing its testing regime, and more heavily weighting the more charter-friendly "value added" measure, low district grades have skyrocketed. Meanwhile, charter grades have pretty well stayed the same during the same period -- overall pretty bad. Importantly, though, Districts still have less than half the rate of F grades as charters. Just saying.

This got me thinking about the whole light speed thing again.

"Huh?" you ask.

Let me explain.

According to Einstein's Theory of Relativity, it is impossible to go faster than the speed of light (though as a sci-fi fan, I sure hope it's not) because it requires infinite energy. So you can approach light speed, but never go over it.

How does this apply to state report card grades? Well, it's like this: Charter performance was so bad, it would have been impossible for them to get much worse. So they had nowhere to go but up, really. Meanwhile, school district performance was flying quite high in 2012-2013, with barely 10 percent of district grades being designated Fs. So when the state starts implementing new tests over a short period, districts have a farther way to fall, which they do (by design, I might add), which makes it seem like maybe charters are gaining on districts, when in fact district performance is simply being artificially dropped not by actual performance, but by state policy changes. 

Does anyone actually believe that districts are twice as likely to have failing grades today as they were 5 years ago? Please.

What is amazing is that charter school performance has remained remarkably consistent. And poor. Yes, their Fs and Ds jumped a bit after all the testing changes. But really, they've been at about 50 percent Fs all along. Is this because charters did a better job at handling the changes?

No. It's because they were approaching light speed already, and they couldn't have done much worse overall. So even though Churchill and others claim that charters have demonstrated their worth and earned the right for a pay raise from the state, I contend if you think they should get a pay raise now, why shouldn't it have come in the 2012-2013 school year when only 40 percent rather than 50 percent of their grades were Fs? Why would we reward their worse performance today?

Yes, it is true they've improved since the low point of 2015-2016 (the last of the three consecutive years of test switching). But they still receive a higher rate of failing grades than they did in 2012-2013 and have only seen a 17 percent drop in frequency of Fs. Districts have cut their F frequency by 22 percent.

Want another staggering data point?

Since the 2012-2013 school year, a total of 11,832 grades were handed out to the state's charter schools (only 7 schools were statewide e-schools for this whole period, by the way, so the vast majority of these grades are for brick-and-mortar schools). Of those 11,832 grades, more than half were Fs. That means since 2012-2013, charter schools have received more Fs than all other grades combined. The number of As? Barely 1,000. Out of nearly 12,000.

What grade have districts received more than any other?

As.

By more than 1,000.

And this is despite the fact that districts' performance has been intentionally Nerfed by state policymakers who desperately want charter schools to succeed even though the evidence is pretty overwhelming they aren't overall.

Can charter schools work here? I believe they can on a limited basis. Are there pockets of success?Yes. Of course. But for advocates like Fordham to contend an overall performance revolution in Ohio charter schools as the basis for an overall pay raise for this long-struggling sector that even charter advocates admit aren't improving a whole lot, stretches the bounds of reason, especially given how much the state has divested from the 90 percent of kids who aren't in charters.

Let's fund charters based on what it actually costs to educate kids there. Let's give performance bonuses where warranted. Let's do it without hurting kids who aren't in charters.

And let's see what happens.
          The Fabrications of a Charter School Zealot      Cache   Translate Page      
In a recent post by the usually sound Aaron Churchill, the Fordham Institute researcher takes some significant pot shots at William Phillis -- the legendary Ohio public school advocate whose work led to the Ohio Supreme Court ruling four different times that the way the state funds public schools is unconstitutional.

I played on Churchill's title for my title of this post.

Churchill's major problem with Phillis' analysis of charter school expenditures is Churchill doesn't like the inconvenient truth that the average charter school spends several hundred dollars more per pupil than the average school district.

Unfair! cries Churchill. You have to weight the average per pupil expenditure. That way it's more fair. He points to the calculation he made in his recent report arguing that more money needs to be given to charter schools as the only fair way to possibly calculate what charter schools spend.

See, here's the problem.

His "weighted" average per pupil expenditure is not an accurate reflection of how many tax dollars go to charters. If you multiply his "weighted" average by the number of students in charters, the amount isn't actually what charters spend.

If you multiply the "unweighted" amount, it does. All weighting does is make it look like charters spend less than districts.

At the end of the day, taxpayers want to know how much of their money is being spent. And in charter schools, about $400 more is being spent per pupil.

Period.

In addition, Churchill ignores the fact that charters, on average, spend about $1,200 more per pupil on administrative, non-instructional costs than school districts. Even big urban districts spend $300 less per student.

So, in other words, if Ohio charter schools reduced their administrative spending to that of Ohio school districts, even on Churchill's "weighted" calculation, they would end up spending about the same as districts.

It's funny how free market reformers like Churchill quickly disparage "bloated" school district administration, but never point out that if charters were simply more efficient at spending money in the classroom, they wouldn't be begging for more.

That's because overall, charters spend about twice the percentage of their money on administrators as school districts do, equating to about 1 in 4 dollars spent by charters.

Next, Churchill goes to the old argument that charter students have far more challenging populations than school districts. Which is generally true, on average.

However, Churchill always wants to compare charters with the state's 8 major urban school districts (Akron, Canton, Cincinnati. Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton, Toledo and Youngstown).

If one does that, about 2 out of every 3 charter schools have 100 percent economically disadvantaged. Meanwhile, only 2 major Ohio urban districts have less than 100 percent economically disadvantaged populations. On average, Ohio's urban districts have about 5 percent higher rate of minority students and about a 10 percent higher rate of economically disadvantaged students than Ohio charter schools.

So, using Churchill's argument that schools with more challenged populations should get more money, it seems that the fact urban districts spend more per equivalent pupil than charters makes sense.

Also absent from Churchill's analysis is the fact that every dollar leaving Akron and Cincinnati for a charter school last school year went to a charter that performed worse on more state report card measures than Akron and Cincinnati.

Churchill also failed to mention that while lots of folks are rightly concerned that 14 Ohio school districts received overall grades of F on the state report card last year, marking them for state takeover, if one applied that standard to Ohio charter schools, 103 of 340 charters receiving grades either received Fs or "Does Not Meet Standards" if they're a dropout recovery school (mind you that "standard" is graduating about 7 out of 100 kids in 4 years).

So 3 out of 10 Ohio charter schools would be set for state takeovers, if the state takeover law applied to them the way it does school districts.

Oh, and about $200 million of your tax dollars went to charters that would have been marked for state takeover, if they were treated like districts.

I anticipate Churchill will complain that I'm comparing all charters with all Ohio school districts. Charter proponents demand their performance only be compared with school districts and buildings that struggle the most.

However, every school district but one had at least some state money transferred to charters from their state funding. You don't get to take money from every school district, yet demand you be held accountable relative to the performance of the most struggling districts.

Sorry, Aaron.

Especially when the current system forces local property taxpayers in those districts to fork over more of their property taxes to make up for the state funding transferred to charters.

And here is the breakdown of charter and district letter grades on the state report card this last year. As you can see, about half of all charter grades are F -- almost more Fs than all other grades combined -- and more than 7 out of 10 are D or F. Meanwhile, about 6 in 10 district grades were A, B, or C.

I guess what I'm most disappointed by though is Churchill's utter lack of deference and respect for Phillis, who more than any single person in the history of the state has held politicians' feet to the fire on equal and adequate funding for all students.

Frankly, Phillis has forgotten more education funding and policy than either I or Churchill will ever know. Churchill's cheap, ad hominem attacks on this man who has spent his life fighting for all kids to receive a world-class education is truly distressing.

My advice to Mr. Churchill would be to stick with trying to knock me around. Because with Phillis he is punching way above his weight class.
          Should Charter Schools Get More Money for Buildings? Depends...      Cache   Translate Page      

A recent call by the Fordham Institute and national charter school proponents has called for Ohio charter school facilities funding to be boosted by nearly 400 percent to match what they actually spend on facilities. While that may sound outrageous, especially given how Ohio charter schools have been near the bottom in national performance comparisons, I'm (surprisingly, perhaps) sympathetic to the idea.

And I told NPR so yesterday.

With major caveats.

First of all, let's talk money. Currently, charters get $200 per student for facilities funding. Yet they spend $785 per pupil, according to Fordham. Which means, they argue, charters need more money.

I do find it curious that when school districts argue they're not being paid enough by the state to cover expenses, free market folks like Fordham call districts wasteful or slovenly inefficient. Yet no such calls here. Hmmm.

Anyway, I've always believed that ensuring charter schools don't have to go into the waiting arms of ne'er-do-well, for-profit charter school operators would be a strong change in policy. One of the major reasons schools pick for profits is because for profits have access to capital and buildings. However, the for profits then fleece the schools on rents.

Here's the problem, though. That charter facility funding comes out of Ohio Lottery money. Last I checked, we were told the lottery was supposed to save us from having more property taxes. Now the state is removing about $16.6 million a year -- instead of putting it into school districts, potentially reducing property taxes -- and giving it to charters for facilities. If they quadruple that, it would be about $50 million more removed form Lottery funds to give to charters.

I don't think that's what the voters approved when they adopted the Lottery.

See, this has been, is and (I fear) will continue to be the problem with the way Ohio has funded school choice programs. The state siphons off a few million here and a few million there that would otherwise have gone to the 90 percent of students whose families choose local public schools. And they give it to privately run schools that aren't nearly as transparent as local public school districts.

And they generally perform worse that the school districts to whom that money was originally designated.

All that invariably forces local property taxpayers to pass more and bigger levies.

So, I am all for charters getting more facilities money because I think it helps keep the bad operators out of the game. But not if it means the 90 percent of Ohio students who remain in local public schools have to rely on more levies for their educations, or go with fewer opportunities.

If the state really believes in school choice, put your money where your mouth is and fund it with separate money that isn't taken away from local public school districts. Stop forcing property taxpayers to subsidize these payments.

I would feel better about Fordham's advocacy here if they identified a new revenue stream or something else to pay for this expense. But I'm suspecting that they'll just ask for a 400 percent jump in their facilities funding through the Lottery, which will siphons off more money originally meant for school districts.

Fish or cut bait. It's really that simple.
          What Coulda Been (And Still Could Be) ...      Cache   Translate Page      

This school year is the 10th since I was the Chairman of the Primary and Secondary Education Subcommittee on the House Finance and Appropriations Committee. It was during that committee process that we developed (among other national award-winning education reforms) the so-called Evidence Based Model of school funding -- Ohio's most serious attempt to address the Ohio Supreme Court's four rulings determining that Ohio's education funding formula was inadequate at calculating the cost of educating Ohio's 1.7 million students and relied too much on local property taxes to fund.

Among the promises made in that package was a 10-year, phased-in funding plan. We picked 10 years because 2009 was the height of the Great Recession, which limited the additional revenue we could commit to the plan initially. But I required that the state publish the 10-year full funding version so that the public could at least hold future legislators accountable to fully fund the thing.

Here is a look at the research that backed each of the funding elements in the EBM. As you can see, there was evidence behind the model -- a far cry from today's "formula", which isn't really a formula in the classic sense.

Even with the limited additional revenue, EBM was beginning to work. The second year of that plan was the only time in Ohio history that more state than local revenue paid for Ohio's public education.

After the 2010 election, though, Gov. John Kasich killed the EBM, replacing it with a plan that initially cut money to education by about $1.8 billion. He then developed his own school funding plan, which was so despised that his own party rejected it in 2013. Ever since, Ohio has essentially created arbitrary per pupil funding increases, which bear no relation to the actual cost of educating kids.

However, that may be changing soon as state Reps. Robert Cupp and John Patterson have been working on a plan that sounds eerily similar to me, basing funding on what kids need and trying to reduce the need for local property taxes to pay for it. And that's all I've ever asked: Figure out the cost, pay for it and don't force us to go to the ballot every couple years to pay for your poorly calculated formula. I don't care what you call it. Just do it.

Given the historic nature of this school year, I wanted to show everyone what the EBM would have provided districts and what today's formula provides.

The difference is stark.

Only about 10 percent do better under the current formula. And 90 percent do worse. Usually significantly worse. For example, Cleveland receives $144 million less today than they would have under the EBM.

Think that would have helped CMSD implement its Transformation Plan? Instead, they've had to rely on local philanthropy and an historically huge local property tax hike to do not even all of what the plan called for.

For a district-by-district rundown of all the state's school districts, visit the spreadsheet I've posted here.

Now some may say that coming up with the $1.7 billion difference between a fully-funded EBM and what the state current spends is an outrageous amount. However, the state now has at least $3 billion fewer today than it could have because of various tax cuts that the state has instituted, especially during the Kasich years.

So we could have paid for a fully funded EBM if we had only cut taxes half as much. It wouldn't have required an additional income tax increase or anything.

Just not as big a tax cut. That's all.

And I bet you haven't even noticed the tax cuts. That's because the wealthiest 1 percent has seen a $17,618 tax cut. Regular folks have seen a $94 cut. And the least wealthy among us have seen an increase. That's right. Give back half of that $94 and your property taxes could have been dramatically cut by an average of $240 a year (depending on where you live, it could have been MUCH more than that).

Look, I get that finding money in this budget will be a challenge. I understand that given the makeup of the General Assembly and Governor's mansion, this will be a heavy lift.

But I also know that two House members are genuinely trying to get this right. I see a new House Speaker who lives in the school district where the DeRolph school funding case originated and probably feels like he has some unfinished business on school funding.

But most of all, I get that our kids need us to deliver for them. A new formula based on what kids need to succeed in the classroom and beyond. A mechanism that doesn't force voters to tax themselves at higher and higher rates every couple years. A system we can all be proud of.

Ten years ago, we were on our way to accomplishing that. Maybe over the next 10 years we can finish that mission.

Just as a personal aside, when I did EBM, my oldest son was in Kindergarten and my youngest had just been born. At the end of the coming two-year budget cycle, my oldest son will be driving and my youngest will be getting ready for middle school.

It is ridiculous that we are working on our third generation of Ohio students whose educations we've failed to properly fund or even calculate.

It's now no longer for my kids' sake we need to get this right.

It's for the generation behind them.
          Brenner School Funding "Fix" Gets Courtesy Hearing      Cache   Translate Page      
Within the first couple months of the 2017-2018 legislative session, state Rep. Andrew Brenner, R-Powell, introduced a new Ohio school funding plan.

As chairman of the House Education Committee, people logically thought this might be a serious attempt to fix Ohio's long-broken school funding system. And while I pointed out how absurd the plan was -- essentially giving huge influxes of cash to privately run charter and largely religious private schools while cutting funding to most local public school districts -- the plan's introduction was treated seriously be many in the media.

However, the bill -- HJR 3 -- had zero co-sponsors.

Not a one.

I thought that would be a big tell about this plan's viability and quality.

Then, in an embarrassing rebuke of the House Education Chairman's authority, the bill was sent to the House Finance and Appropriations Committee, not Brenner's committee. School funding bills should generally go to finance. But out of respect for the committee chair, one would think his big school funding bill would be sent to his committee.

Yet it wasn't.

What does all this inside baseball mean?

Well, it means that instead of being able to talk about his school funding plan for nearly two years in his own committee, drumming up support, Brenner will be given a single hearing tomorrow in the Finance committee -- a hearing that's required by House rules for all pieces of legislation filed prior to July of even years. Even the crazy bills that have zero chances of passing.

So the House Education Committee Chairman can only get a single, required hearing for an overhaul of the state's school funding system, which has been declared unconstitutional four different times.

That, my friends, is a legislator with zero clout.
          Feds Say Ohio Has No Plan to Improve Educationally Challenged Student Performance in Charter Schools      Cache   Translate Page      
Today, I was looking at the Ohio Department of Education's (ODE) website and out of curiosity decided to check in on the state's implementation of that much-ballyhooed $71 million grant -- the nation's largest -- it received to grow high-performing charter schools here.

Later, it was discovered that David Hansen -- the husband of Ohio Gov. John Kasich's Chief of Staff -- who oversaw Ohio's charter school program rigged the application by hiding the performance of the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow from the federal government, breaking state law.

That got Hansen resigned (fired), and was probably the moment that swung the pendulum against ECOT among Ohio's ruling political elite for the first time. That school year was when ODE started asking ECOT whether it actually had the kids it was charging taxpayers to educate.

But it also got Ohio in a pickle and twisting through about 2 years of haranguing with the U.S. Department of Education over the state's notoriously poor oversight of charter schools. Finally, last year, the state gave out a staggeringly low $1 million of that $71 million to just three of Ohio's about 400 charter schools.

Then the state just gave back $22 million of the $71 million, saying it just didn't have enough good oversight agencies running charter schools. A fine admission. But that was the case in 2015 when Hansen lied to the feds and said the state actually did have good oversight.

Well not much has happened since April 2017 in the media about this, so I decided to check up on the grant's progress. And it's not good. At all.

In its assessment of ODE done for the federal Department of Education last October, WestEd -- a consulting firm -- wrote this staggering paragraph:
"During interviews with the site visit team, ODE did not articulate a plan for the OCS (Ohio's Office of Community Schools) to disseminate best practices for recruiting, enrolling, serving, or retaining educationally-disadvantaged students."
What? This wasn't ODE forgetting to fill out a form. ODE officials sat down with evaluators and failed to articulate how educationally challenged kids would be helped by the federal grant. I mean, WTF? Isn't that the whole point of charter schools? I mean, that's the one I hear all the time.

Oh, but that's not all.
"At the time of the site visit, the grantee’s draft monitoring protocol did not include plans to ensure compliance with Federal and State laws related to educational equity, nondiscrimination, and access to public schools for educationally-disadvantaged students."
Seriously, WTF?

Is it too much to ask that Ohio have a plan to ensure that charter schools follow state and federal anti-discrimination laws? Or that they have a plan to make sure disadvantaged students get what they need in charter schools? 

One more:
"The draft RFA does not include plans for awarding subgrants based on innovativeness. Applicants are asked to explain the effectiveness of their proposed educational program, but not the program’s innovativeness. 
There are. No words.

Nor does there seem to be much independent oversight of this program now. The state had created an advisory committee made up of several experts meant to help the state navigate the program. According to the ODE website, "The Committee shall meet on at least semi-annual basis with the first meeting occurring thirty days prior to the department publishing its first request for application for the CSP Grant.  Thereafter the Committee shall meet in June and December of each year."

Yet, the only meeting minutes (which are quite scant, by the way. But I digress.) posted on the website are from March and April 2017. The last line of the April minutes says they were slated to meet in July 2017. No minutes from July, though. And no indication this group has met since April 2017.

Yet the state apparently took applications for grants for this coming school year. No word about whether they've been granted.

So after three years and constant communication with the feds, the $71 million charter grant Ohio got in 2015 amid much fanfare has been sent to 3 of Ohio's nearly 400 charter schools for $350,000 each.

And ODE still has no plan to ensure charters better serve at-risk kids or implement innovative learning, which was the whole point of the grant in the first place.

Look, I know federal grants are a pain. I know that David Hansen's lies to benefit Bill Lager's now disgraced ECOT put Ohio behind the 8 ball. But good Lord this is awful. And it speaks once again to just how far behind we are as a state on this issue and why the country still considers us the Wild, Wild West of charter schools.

We must do better. And we must demand better. This is embarrassing.
          ECOT: The Scandal of All Time      Cache   Translate Page      
I've been off for about a week. And what a week it's been. ECOT has officially become a criminal investigation. Formerly supportive Republican legislators can't give back their ECOT money fast enough, yet some remain stubbornly reluctant to do so.

In the meantime, the media have correctly identified ECOT and its more than $1 billion boondoggle as a crippling political albatross firmly wrapped around the Ohio GOP's neck.

Added to this is the outrage of the ostentatious auction of former ECOT personal property (including an outrageously opulent chair for founder Bill Lager to sit upon like a throne).

But there is one bit of misinformation floating around out there that I want to address and (hopefully) squash right away. And that is the idea that because Ohio Democrats were in charge of the Governor's mansion and House of Representatives in 2009 and ECOT continued to operate that somehow Ohio Democrats aren't clean on this scandal.

Since I was actually there during the 2009 budget process and was intimately involved, I thought I should clear up some things about what happened about 10 years ago.

It's very simple. Gov. Strickland's budget that year called for a 70 percent cut for Ohio eSchools. That's right. If Gov. Strickland's budget had passed unamended, ECOT funding would have been cut by 70 percent, effectively ending the school 10 years before it actually shut down, which would have saved Ohio taxpayers about $700 million that went to the school since then. Not to mention the lives of thousands of students ECOT failed to graduate.

By the way, of the 3,794 students who actually did graduate ECOT the first year of the 2009 budget, only 109 have college degrees today. Just by way of reference.

However, Ohio Republicans still controlled the Senate during the 2009 budget. I was in those budget negotiations and I can tell you that we were told in no uncertain terms that if the 70 percent cuts stayed in the budget, there would be no budget for the 2009 session -- severely crippling Ohio's potential economic recovery from the Great Recession.

Don't believe me? Here's what he Ohio Association for Public Charter schools said at the time about the ultimate budget package (which did pass with ECOT funding restored, in exchange for our economic recovery and the implementation of the Evidence Based Model of school funding that put us on the path to a constitutional school funding system for the first time in our state's history):
“The Ohio Alliance for Public Charter Schools is deeply grateful to policy-makers – particularly the Senate Majority leadership team – for preserving charter school funding.”
The next year, 2010, I was up for re-election. A shadowy group spent about $500,000 to defeat me. It was funded by eSchools like ECOT, who funded my opponent that year, Todd McKenney. Their tactics were so outrageous (harassing my family and 5-year-old son at his Trick or Treat trail, for example), the New York Times profiled them.  If we went so easy on eSchools, why was I targeted when, ostensibly, I restored their funding?

Because ECOT and other eSchools knew that I and others like me were onto their scam -- a scam that was allowed to grow exponentially under Gov. John Kasich (who spoke at ECOT's graduation in 2011) until the Ohio Department of Education started asking very basic questions about ECOT's enrollment in 2016 and 2017.

So please, pile on all you want. But do not for a second believe that we didn't try to fix the ECOT problem 10 years ago. Because we did. And Senate Republicans were willing to jeopardize our state's economic recovery, not to mention the funding for the 90 percent of Ohio students not in charter schools, to save this horrible school.

Wonder if they regret that stance today, given the scandal's mushrooming scale?
          ECOT: Now it's criminal. Literally.      Cache   Translate Page      
Mens Rea.

I believe it was the first (or one of the first) legal terms of art I learned in law school. It means "state of mind." In other words, in order to commit a crime, you have to have the proper state of mind to fit the requirements of the crime.

Why do I bring this up now? Because it now appears that we have a smoking gun indicating that officials at the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow formed the necessary mens rea to be charged with crimes.

According to an Associated Press story today (which ran all over the place, but I'll link to my former employer's version), people at ECOT -- at one point the largest single school in the nation -- were ordered to deliberately inflate enrollment so the school could keep getting paid $100 million plus to "educate" children, even if those children weren't actually at ECOT.

ECOT infamously did a remarkably poor job of educating those who were, by the way. How poor? Only 109 of 3,794 ECOT graduates from 2010 earned a college degree within 6 years of graduating. But I digress.

Back to the school's potential crimes.

According to the whistleblower who made this claim and worked for the software company that handled enrollment for ECOT, "school officials ordered staff to manipulate student data with software obtained following the state’s demand that it return $60 million in overpayments for the 2015-2016 school year."

That's right. ECOT was so arrogant that it ordered people to artificially inflate enrollment ... after the state had fined the school $60 million for inflating enrollment.

That's right. No question what the offenders' states of mind were. They knew it was wrong. They had been fined for doing it the previous year. And they did it anyway. Imagine what they told people to do before they were caught???? (Though, technically, they were caught in their first year of operation and on several other previous occasions, but not for as much money.)

Why the arrogance? Because ECOT's founder, Bill Lager, and other employees had invested $2.8 million in Ohio politicians since they started operations in the 2000-2001 school year.

Current Ohio Secretary of State and Lt. Gov. Candidate Jon Husted receives only known honorary degree from ECOT as Ohio Speaker of the House in 2007. Husted was one of several prominent Ohio Republican politicians who spoke at ECOT's graduation ceremonies, including Gov. John Kasich, Ohio Auditor David Yost, disgraced House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger and Ohio Supreme Court Justice Terrence O'Donnell. 


It wasn't that long ago that people went to prison for inflating enrollment figures at Columbus City Schools. What do you want to bet that the politicians who have taken a bunch of money and kudos from ECOT will do the same thing to that school's officials?

The taxpayer money involved here, if the enrollment overinflation that's been found over the last couple years is extrapolated over the course of ECOT's entire lifespan, is north of $500 million. By way of comparison, the infamous Coingate scandal from 2005-2006 ended up costing taxpayers about $50 million.

So ECOT and Lager's ripoff could be 10 times that of Tom Noe, who spent about 2 years in federal prison.

Now that we have insiders spilling the beans on the real mission of ECOT -- making money by ripping off taxpayers -- ECOT's top bananas certainly seem much closer to taking a trip up the river.

Because we now know their state of mind.

And it sure seems criminal to me.


          I guess Ohio's A-F Report Cards weren't that great after all      Cache   Translate Page      
When Ohio switched to a new A-F report card system in the 2012-2013 school year, much was made of how wonderful it was.

Here's what the Ohio Department of Education said about them, veritably gushing over the Education Commission of the States' awarding the system its highest marks:
"We released the new A-F report cards with the idea that they would be easier to understand, and provide more information to both parents and educators,” ODE spokesman John Charlton said. “This report kind of validates our efforts so far, as we continue to work on this report card. The real winners are the students in Ohio. They’re going to benefit from the information in that report card, whether it’s their parents using the data, educators using it, or whether the students are looking at it themselves.”
Folks from the education reform community claimed it created a more understandable system (because, apparently, parents couldn't decipher the words "excellent with distinction", "excellent", "effective", "academic watch" and "academic emergency"). Here's how the Fordham Institute described the new report cards:
"The Buckeye State’s new A-F report card is a wonderful opportunity for parents to gain a better appreciation of how their child’s school is doing, and to take action if necessary."
But I was concerned because the new A-F system was even more reliant on test scores than the previous system. And test scores are nearly perfectly correlated with poverty rates, not educational excellence. Here's what I said after the first batch of report cards came out:
"The new Report Card is based largely on standardized tests, which are tremendously influenced by demographics. Under this new system, a building and district's ratings are even more dependent upon their demographics than the prior system, which was pretty well dependent upon demographics as well."
So imagine my surprise when a new House Bill 591 appears and does away with Ohio's much-lauded A-F report card in favor of one less influenced by test scores. I should be excited, right? Not so fast. See, here's the thing.

It would keep the A-F report card for consequential actions -- the very things that make these A-F grades so high stakes, problematic and consequential for schools, districts, parents and kids.

What's "consequential" mean? Oh, whether a district is low performing enough that a charter school can come in. Or kids qualify for private school vouchers. Or whether a charter school closes. These -- and other things -- will all still be determined by a district or school's rating on the hated A-F report card.

And the bill eliminates several transparency reports about how schools spend money and how they educate kids. One of the things Ohio does better than nearly every other state is produce meaningful and copious data points.

Other than that, though ...

Look, I appreciate the effort to undo this misguided report card. As sponsor Mike Duffy, R-Columbus, put it, "nobody likes the current Ohio school district report card."

So why won't he just do a simple bill to get rid of the current system, replace it with a more rational system and go from there? Why would he let this system he admits everyone hates continue holding its dangerous grip on students and schools?

Again, these problems were all pretty predictable from the time the A-F report card was implemented. Yet folks couldn't stop fawning over the brilliance of turning five "grade" levels into the familiar A-F scale from the less familiar Excellent with Distinction, Excellent, Effective, Academic Watch and Academic Emergency system.

Now everyone hates it.

I'm not one to say, "I told you so."

But, well ... you know.
          Do Charters Spend More than Districts, Or What Do Medians Mean?      Cache   Translate Page      
I try to steer clear of mumbo jumbo on this blog. I wish to simplify rather than complicate already dense, complicated topics. But when it comes to expenditures in charter schools and school districts, it matters whether you know what medians and means are. So please indulge a little nerdification here.

For those who need a refresher, means are averages. Medians are midpoints among a range of numbers. So, for example, the median of 1,2,3,4,5 is 3. The average of 1,2,3,4,5 is also 3. However, when there is a lot of variation in the numbers, averages (or means) can be thrown off. Sometimes to a great degree. So, for example, the mean of 1, 2, 3, 4, 3,000,000 is 600,000. The median remains 3, which is a much more accurate way to describe a typical number in the series.

So when you have a series of numbers with wide variations, you generally want to use medians because they answer the question of what is the "typical" number. If you don't have much variation between numbers, generally averages work better.

Which brings me to the question of which schools spend more in Ohio, charter schools or school districts. These two charts will tell you both, depending on whether you want to use medians or means.

 The graphic on the left shows the median expenditure per pupil for each school type. You'll see that generally, Ohio school districts spend a few hundred dollars more per pupil than charter schools.

The chart below the median chart shows that on average, charter schools spend more per pupil than Ohio school districts.

So, what gives and which numbers matter most in determining this issue?

Well, as you can see, the average per pupil expenditure varies wildly in charter schools, likely due to the much greater variation in their financial reporting competence than anything else. For example, in the 2013-2014 school year, the largest per pupil expenditure in charter schools was more than $1 million, which probably wasn't accurate. The largest per pupil expenditure in a school district that year was a little more than $20,000 (a tiny Lake Erie island district was over $30,000). So the variation among school districts was much smaller than the variation in charters that year. And pretty much every year since.

Except for this past school year of 2016-2017.

The variation between the highest and lowest spending charter school last year was $36,000 -- not far off from the school district variance of $24,000. In the 2013-2014 school year, the reported variation in per pupil spending at charter schools was $1.4 million. And even if you discount the handful of charters who likely erroneously reported spending more than $100,000 per pupil, the difference remained well north of $85,000.

So that means in order to be fair, you had to use medians to express what a "typical" charter or district spent to account for those variations. Which means charters spent less per pupil than districts. This year, though, there's a real question if using averages now is fair game. Because the wild variations in charters aren't there anymore.

In other words, the "typical" and "average" charter school are becoming far more similar than in the past.

Why does all this matter? Because we were told (and have been told) again and again that charter schools and the private sector that drives them perform the same or better academically at lower cost than Ohio's local public schools. And charter school advocates are now saying they need more money because they can't spend what they need to spend in the classroom.

Yet Ohio's charter school sector overall spends about the same and performs far worse. Even if you want to look at medians, is the few hundred dollars' savings worth the far worse graduation rates and worse overall academic performance in charter schools?

Again, this is not saying we should eliminate all charter schools. But we should take a hint from the earlier discussion of means and medians. If there are so many poor performing charter schools and a relative few high performers to skew overall performance and cost, shouldn't we eliminate the poor performers so the high performers can thrive?

The ECOT closure is a good start toward making Ohio's charter school sector more reflective of the ideal market-based education model that's focused on quality rather than enrollment, real or imagined.

Yet we still fall short of our kids and families who want options but are instead duped into believing a few slick brochures and smooth talking sales pitches selling them on the idea that choice rather than quality should drive their children's education. It is the quality of the option that should drive the choice. And it is up to policymakers to ensure that quality is what drives their desire for more educational options.

Because that whole "better and cheaper" argument for charters? In Ohio, that dog don't hunt.
          John the Vindictive: How HB 512 Shows John Kasich Hasn't Changed      Cache   Translate Page      
The image of Ohio Gov. John Kasich has shall we say "evolved" since he first took office. Within days of his 2010 election, he gave a famous speech where he warned Columbus lobbyists that his agenda would be unstoppable. He summed it up this way:
"If you’re not on the bus, we’ll run over you with the bus. And I’m not kidding."
Two months later, he told a room full of people about a story of being pulled over for not giving a passing ambulance the right of way. He called the officer who dared pull him over an "idiot."

A few months later, he passed Senate Bill 5 -- the most direct and serious attack on union rights mounted in the state for generations. But when organizers collected more than 1 million signatures and voters roundly defeated his legislation at the ballot box almost a year after his election, he started "mellowing".

And running for President.

As the last man standing against Donald Trump in the 2016 Republican primary, Kasich turned into a bit of a fuzzy warm reminder for some of what "reasonable" Republicans were -- hearkening to a time when Eisenhower could carry the Republican banner without being drummed out of office. His latest book "Two Paths" is supposed to be the marker for all reasonable Republicans who want to get things done.

But John the Vindictive has not really changed. And House Bill 512 proves it. According to a Plain Dealer story yesterday, John Kasich and current Superintendent for Public Instruction Paolo DeMaria have not met since DeMaria was named Superintendent in 2016. Nearly two years and the Governor hasn't met with the man responsible for the education of 1.8 million Ohio children?

That's weird.

It makes one wonder if Kasich wasn't happy with DeMaria's selection as State Superintendent. And maybe explains why he wants more control over the pick. DeMaria, after all, was a late addition to the finalists list for State Superintendent, indicating he wasn't Kasich's first choice.

As Kasich recently told a forum last month:
"What I really want...I want to be able to run the Department of Education," Kasich said an at Associated Press forum February 2.  "I don't think we should have this elected school board."
Could it be that Kasich instead supported Reynoldsburg Superintendent Tina Thomas-Manning, who famously put in scab teachers to fight the Reynoldsburg teacher strike? In a Plain Dealer story that reviewed the strike, her relationship with Kasich was described this way:
"Some even view Thomas-Manning, superintendent of the Reynoldsburg school district, as a puppet of Gov. John Kasich and former state Superintendent Richard Ross."
Trouble was, at the time the board was considering Thomas-Manning, the Reynoldsburg Superintendent was in a full out war with her Board of Education, with members calling for her to step down in the aftermath of the strike that tore apart the Reynoldsburg community. Not a good look if you're asking another board to hire you.

Thomas-Manning eventually did not have her contract renewed and received a $100,000 golden parachute from the Reynoldsburg Board of Education. Yet she continued to do consulting work for the district as recently as last fall.

Whatever the backroom dealings, it's clear that Kasich is pushing HB 512 to punish the department for something, or some things. One is clearly the board and superintendent's role in closing down the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow -- a huge, online charter school run by major political donor Bill Lager.

Kasich's first high school graduation address was to ECOT in 2011.

But it appears that Kasich's indifference to the State Superintendent of Public Instruction may have additional roots in DeMaria's unanimous selection as Superintendent by the State Board. And reveal Kasich's real desire to get a more divisive, loyal, union-busting figure at the department. This was the guy who tried to destroy the teachers unions with Senate Bill 5, after all.

But the bottom line is this: With HB 512, it appears that the State Board of Education -- and the voters who put 11 of them in office -- are the latest to be run over by John the Vindictive's bus.

          ECOT Bills State for Students ... AFTER IT CLOSES      Cache   Translate Page      
The Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow told the Ohio Department of Education on Jan. 23 that it still had 5,580 students, and the state should pay them for educating those students. Trouble was, the school closed Jan. 19 -- four days before that payment was sent to the department.

That's right. It appears ECOT wanted to be paid for students it said it was educating after the school had closed.

To the Department's credit, they issued no taxpayer money to the state's once largest virtual school based on their Jan. 23 request. But the fact that ECOT, even after the end had come, demanded taxpayer money for educating kids everyone knew weren't there because the school had closed, put a rather tight, ironic bow on this school's sordid history.

Remember, it was the fact they couldn't prove they educated $80 million worth of students over the last two years, which then the state demanded they repay, that led to the school's abrupt closing last month.

But that closure didn't stop ECOT from continuing to demand taxpayers give them money. According to department reports, ECOT's February monthly payment to charter schools is based on data received by the state Jan. 23 -- four days after the school officially shut down. 

Fortunately for taxpayers, the school only billed the state for 5,580 students -- not the 11,876 students the school claimed it had enrolled on Dec. 24, 2017 -- the last date ODE looked at prior to the school's closure.

So that meant that the school, if it only had 5,580 students, had been overpaid by about $11 million because the state had paid the school for educating about twice as many students for the first half of the school year. So the school only needed $41.3 million to educate those students all year. However, the state had already paid the school $52 million through January based on the larger enrollment.

And that doesn't include the $30 million payment the school was supposed to cough up in return for charging taxpayers $60 million for students the school couldn't prove it actually educated in the 2015-2016 school year (another $20 million in overpayments was discovered later by ODE for last school year).

So while the state did its job and didn't pay ECOT for kids it claimed it educated while it was closed, the fact that ECOT actually charged taxpayers for this is incredible.

What a scandal. 

          ECOT argues in Supreme Court tomorrow that it should be paid for educating kids it can't prove it educated. Really.      Cache   Translate Page      
Tomorrow, ECOT will argue before the Ohio Supreme Court that even though it can't demonstrate that more than 60 percent of the students it charged taxpayers for educating actually engaged in educational activity, it should still receive taxpayer money because they could have been educated by them

The state forcing the school to re-pay taxpayers $80 million for kids it can't prove ever engaged in any learning experiences at ECOT is eventually what led to the Educational Service Center of Lake Erie West to drop the mega-virtual school last month, forcing the school to close and leaving hundreds of staff and thousands of families in a lurch -- a lurch caused by ECOT founder Bill Lager's love of money and fancy houses (owned under the name NestEgg Development, LLC. I can't make this up)


And while it appears that finances will be what shuts down the state's first and largest online school (though in a welcome departure from pure finances, apparently the Insight School of Ohio, run by K-12, Inc., which also runs the Ohio Virtual Academy -- currently the state's largest online school -- will be shut down for failing kids rather than accountants), ECOT's academic performance for the kids it actually did educate was not much better than those it didn't.

According to state data from the 2016-2017 school year, every penny sent from a school district to ECOT last year (which was more than $100 million) came from a district that outperformed the online giant by at least 4 of 13 state report card categories. And an astonishing 1 out of every 4 dollars sent to ECOT came from a district that outperformed ECOT on every comparable measure.
This is not to say there weren't success stories at ECOT. There were. But in the vast, overwhelming majority of cases, ECOT simply did not provide a better academic option for students than the districts they left.

And while they did graduate large numbers of students, they failed to graduate about twice as many as they actually graduated. Some of ECOT's paid supporters like posting impressive photos of their Schottenstein Center graduations. They never post a filled Fenway Park, which holds about the number of students ECOT failed to graduate since its opening.

One telling metric of the school's long-term impact on kids is how many ECOT graduates have a college degree within six years of graduation. 

When coupled with the fact that ECOT was charging taxpayers tens of millions of dollars to educate kids that never participated in learning at the school, it's clear that this school was not living up to expectations academically or financially.

As I wrote before, ECOT has generally not performed well on state metrics and have been unable to account for the children's learning experiences, but they have until recently been protected by powerful friends in the Ohio General Assembly and state government who benefited from ECOT founder Bill Lager's political largess.

And now the Supreme Court will decide, essentially, whether the school should be paid for educating kids it can't prove it educated and therefore remain open forever. 

          ECOT's political patrons are many and vast      Cache   Translate Page      
Now that the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow (ECOT) is closed, it pays to step back and understand why a school that the Ohio Department of Education didn't approve in 1999 because it didn't think ECOT could effectively account for its students was shut down 18 years later because ... it couldn't effectively account for its students.

A major reason that this 18 year, more than $1 billion in state taxpayer funded operation was allowed to continue, despite repeated signs they weren't keeping track of their students. (One of those signs included an audit by then-Auditor Betty Montgomery that showed ECOT had overbilled taxpayers every year between 2001 and 2005.)

A big reason was ECOT founder William Lager's political contributions, primarily to powerful Republican lawmakers. According to www.followthemoney.org (which tracks state and local campaign contributions from the early 1990s to present), Lager himself gave more than $1.2 million to primarily legislative candidates since 2000, less than 5 percent of which went to Democrats.

Included in those contributions are current Attorney General Mike DeWine and Secretary of State Jon Husted. They are now running for Governor and Lieutenant Governor. 

Another recipient has been current Auditor Dave Yost, who is running for Attorney General. Another is Keith Faber, who is running for Auditor.

The list includes Speakers of the House, Presidents of the Senate and chairmen and chairwomen of powerful legislative committees.

And while the school is now shut down, what is clear is that the reason it remained open as long as it was was because the school had powerful allies and protectors in state government. In fact, Lager often complimented the recipients of his largess at ECOT graduations (where many of the largest recipients spoke) and thanked them for stopping efforts to close or "harm" the school. 

Here is a list of the recipients who received more than $10,000 from Lager:

          NFL Rumors: Cleveland Browns Offering Earl Thomas 3-Year Deal On Same Day They Acquire Odell Beckham Jr.      Cache   Translate Page      

Earl Thomas runs with the ball.

On what is shaping up to be a historic day in the history of the Cleveland Browns, the long struggling franchise — a team that has not appeared in the NFL playoffs since 2002, per Pro Football Reference — appears to be on the verge of acquiring not just one but two star players, adding six-time Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas to their earlier acquisition of New York Giants three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

The NFL website confirmed that the Browns added their “true Number One” receiver to go with second-year quarterback Baker Mayfield in 2019, when they traded “a first-round pick (No. 17 overall) the second of the Browns’ third-round picks (No. 95) and safety Jabrill Peppers” to the Giants for the 26-year-old Beckham, who caught 390 passes for 5,746 yards and 44 touchdowns paired with Eli Manning in five seasons with the Giants.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump delivers a speech during the evening session on the fourth day of the Republican National Convention on July 21, 2016 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.

David Bossie, former deputy campaign manager for President Donald Trump, discussed the strong possibly that Democratic lawmakers will soon make a move to impeach the president, he said on ABC News’ podcast The Investigation on Tuesday, according to The Hill.

During the interview, Bossie was asked whether he thought the White House was prepared for a possible advance of investigations from House Democrats, to which the former campaign manager responded that it appears that Congress is indeed headed in that direction.

“I see that’s where these Democrats are headed,” said Bossie, who remains part of Trump’s inner circle, according to the report. “We are headed to impeachment.”

Bossie further responded that the White House is most likely not ready to face impeachment proceedings, emphasizing that no government ever really is, the report details.

          A true holiday inspriation      Cache   Translate Page      
Today I thought I would make a quick post about something local. This post reveals the true spirit of the holiays, and probably the hardest working man I've even met. His name is Bill Peters, and he's mostly known for his Auburn Records label and string of bands. I honestly don't know when this man sleeps.

He has a wife and 2 teenage kids that he is constantly busy with, he helps his parents, works with the bands and record label, (recording, practices, setting up shows, going to the shows, promoting the bands, etc), goes to the big German music festivals,hosts a Friday night radio show (26 years now I believe), helps with a Halloween event that gives proceeds to charity, and now this; all while still working a full time job. I'm sure there are many things that I've missed too!

He's put together the "3rd Annual Iron Ingo Cleveland Metal Holiday Food Drive". He's gotten seven bands to play a totally free show, with only the request that attendees bring cash or food goods for donation. The proceeds go to the Cleveland Foodbank and Friends of the Cleveland Kennel. Yes you read that right. Heavy metal bands and fans getting together to help the needy, both two and four legged. The 80's had Bob Geldoff doing Live Aid and John Mellencamp doing Farm Aid, and now we have Bill doing Iron Ingo. It is truly an amazing thing. So much for that stereotype of a heavy metal fan, eh? Maybe we need an all Auburn roster cover of "Stars"?? naaaa hahaha

In out time of a shaky economy and high unemployment, more people than ever are having a hard time making ends meet, and need help. While there may be food banks all over the place, few are able to really keep up with the string of people needing help. It's people like Bill who step up to the plate and put together something like this to get them the help they deserve.

Bill is truly an inspiration with everything he does, and that's why I wanted to share this with this quick post. Check out the flyer, check out his (the record label) website www.auburnrecords.com, and if you're local, stop by the show! Kudo's to you Bill! You and this event are what it's all about.

          Medical Marijuana? Say Goodbye to Your Gun Rights      Cache   Translate Page      

Editor's Note: This article originally appeared on our website December 12, 2017. We are republishing it now that Ohio media have finally caught on. (see here and here and here and here.

House Bill 523, passed on September 8, 2016, legalized medical marijuana in Ohio. The Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program will allow residents of the state with certain qualifying conditions, and a recommendation from a physician, to register with the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy for a patient ID card.

State agencies are still working on how to administer the program, but medical marijuana patient ID cards will be available no later than September 2018.

The question is, how does this affect gun rights in Ohio? The answer seems to be, if you use marijuana, you lose your gun rights regardless of state law.

Here's the problem: while the state has made medical marijuana legal in Ohio, federal law continues to list marijuana as a Schedule I controlled substance. That means marijuana users can't have guns legally.

In 2011, BATFE sent a letter to U.S. gun dealers that took a firm stance on the issue:

U.S. Department of Justice

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco,
Firearms and Explosives

Washington DC 20226

September 21, 2011
www.atf.gov

OPEN LETTER TO ALL FEDERAL FIREARMS LICENSEES

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has received a number of inquiries regarding the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes1 and its applicability to Federal firearms laws. The purpose of this open letter is to provide guidance on the issue and to assist you, a Federal firearms licensee, in complying with Federal firearms laws and regulations.

A number of States have passed legislation allowing under State law the use or possession of marijuana for medicinal purposes, and some of these States issue a card authorizing the holder to use or possess marijuana under State law. During a firearms transaction, a potential transferee may advise you that he or she is a user of medical marijuana, or present a medical marijuana card as identification or proof of residency.

As you know, Federal law, 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(3), prohibits any person who is an "unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance (as defined in section 102 of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 802)" from shipping, transporting, receiving or possessing firearms or ammunition. Marijuana is listed in the Controlled Substances Act as a Schedule I controlled substance, and there are no exceptions in Federal law for marijuana purportedly used for medicinal purposes, even if such use is sanctioned by State law. Further, Federal law, 18 U.S.C. § 922(d)(3), makes it unlawful for any person to sell or otherwise dispose of any firearm or ammunition to any person knowing or having reasonable cause to believe that such person is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance. As provided by 27 C.F.R. § 478.11, "an inference of current use may be drawn from evidence of a recent use or possession of a controlled substance or a pattern of use or possession that reasonably covers the present time."

Therefore, any person who uses or is addicted to marijuana, regardless of whether his or her State has passed legislation authorizing marijuana use for medicinal purposes, is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance, and is prohibited by Federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition. Such persons should answer "yes" to question 11.e. on ATF Form 4473 (August 2008), Firearms Transaction Record, and you may not transfer firearms or ammunition to them. Further, if you are aware that the potential transferee is in possession of a card authorizing the possession and use of marijuana under State law, then you have "reasonable cause to believe" that the person is an unlawful user of a controlled substance. As such, you may not transfer firearms or ammunition to the person, even if the person answered "no" to question 11.e. on ATF Form 4473.

ATF is committed to assisting you in complying with Federal firearms laws. If you have any questions, please contact ATF's Firearms Industry Programs Branch at (202) 648-7190.

1The Federal government does not recognize marijuana as a medicine. The FDA has determined that marijuana has a high potential for abuse, has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, and lacks an accepted level of safety for use under medical supervision. See 66 Fed. Reg. 20052 (2001). This Open Letter will use the terms "medical use" or "for medical purposes" with the understanding that such use is not sanctioned by the federal agency charged with determining what substances are safe and effective as medicines.

So according to the BATFE, if you use marijuana, you can't legally ship, transport, receive or possess firearms or ammunition. Period. State law doesn't matter.

While this seems clear to those who pay close attention to such legal technicalities, it probably won't be clear to many casual gun owners. Most will only know that marijuana is legal in Ohio, and it will never occur to them that they are violating federal law if they choose to participate in the medical marijuana program.

For example, the letter above mentions question 11.e. on ATF Form 4473. This is the form you fill out when you purchase a firearm and it is used to conduct a background check. It asks:

Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?

You may think that since Ohio has made marijuana legal, you can answer "no." And if you're like me, and you fill out this form frequently, you may just quickly check "no" on all the legal questions without reading them. Which means you'll probably miss the warning that was added to this question earlier this year:

Warning: The use or possession of marijuana remains unlawful under Federal law regardless of whether it has been legalized or decriminalized for medicinal or recreational purposes in the state where you reside.

From long experience, I know that people don't read carefully, and a certain number of gun owners are going to provide false information on this form and unknowingly become felons. This exposes you to felony charges under federal law, punishable with prison time and/or a hefty fine.

It's difficult to predict how the medical marijuana vs. guns issue will play out. In some states, such as Hawaii, enforcement may be strict. According to the Miami Herald, The Honolulu Police Department has been sending letters to legal users of medicinal weed, telling them to surrender their guns within 30 days. However, other states, such as Ohio, may take a softer approach. According to Ohio Board of Pharmacy spokesman Cameron McNamee, only qualified doctors will have access to the Ohio medical marijuana patient registry. Dayton Daily News is reporting that the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) won’t include this data.

Regardless, with 29 states and the District of Columbia legalizing medical marijuana, there is bound to be confusion over the issue. And no matter how you may feel about it, the fact remains that Ohio law and federal law conflict. At this time, guns and pot are like oil and water. Legally, they don't mix.

For example, the letter above mentions question 11.e. on ATF Form 4473. This is the form you fill out when you purchase a firearm and it is used to conduct a background check. It asks:

Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?

You may think that since Ohio has made marijuana legal, you can answer "no." And if you're like me, and you fill out this form frequently, you may just quickly check "no" on all the legal questions without reading them. Which means you'll probably miss the warning that was added to this question earlier this year:

Warning: The use or possession of marijuana remains unlawful under Federal law regardless of whether it has been legalized or decriminalized for medicinal or recreational purposes in the state where you reside.

From long experience, I know that people don't read carefully, and a certain number of gun owners are going to provide false information on this form and unknowingly become felons. This exposes you to felony charges under federal law, punishable with prison time and/or a hefty fine.

It's difficult to predict how the medical marijuana vs. guns issue will play out. In some states, such as Hawaii, enforcement may be strict. According to the Miami Herald, The Honolulu Police Department has been sending letters to legal users of medicinal weed, telling them to surrender their guns within 30 days. However, other states, such as Ohio, may take a softer approach. According to Ohio Board of Pharmacy spokesman Cameron McNamee, only qualified doctors will have access to the Ohio medical marijuana patient registry. Dayton Daily News is reporting that the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) won’t include this data.

Regardless, with 29 states and the District of Columbia legalizing medical marijuana, there is bound to be confusion over the issue. And no matter how you may feel about it, the fact remains that Ohio law and federal law conflict. At this time, guns and pot are like oil and water. Legally, they don't mix.

           Comment on Giants get first- and third-round picks, Jabrill Peppers for Beckham by irileydev       Cache   Translate Page      
This is a head-scratcher; being right here in the city and hearing the Giants GM say, "we didn't sign Odell to trade him", wow, Gettleman is confusing the hell out of me. Giants fans be careful what you wish for. Here are some nuggets to chew on: 1) You have a 38-yr old QB whose feet is set in cement; and, you still have holes on O-line -- which makes Manning virtually ineffective, even if he can still throw it 2) Without Odell on the field,Manning is basically limited to checkdowns and has been basically unplayable 3) Without Beckham, Manning is a middle of the pack QB with 78% passer rating 4) The Giants are 6-15 when Beckham doesn't play 5) And no, the Browns were not fleeced. Because the Giants temporarily decided to keep Beckham, the Giants just ate $16 million in dead money on this year's cap. The Giants are also eating Beckham's $20 mil signing bonus and that leaves Cleveland giving Beckham $15 million per yr salary; that is, $47 mil going into 2022. Watkins is owed more -- in case you're wondering Beckham still has a 50-50 chance of making the HOF, Watkins has to buy a ticket. But I guess that Giants fans are tired of Beckham's on the field antics; meh ... says this Steelers fan in NYC. And yes he's a headcase but he is not a locker room killer ... that's not what his team mates are saying -- again I'm a Steelers fan in NYC, I think I know what a locker room killer looks like ....

          Vladi Junior, lesionado del oblicuo, ha subido 50 libras desde que firmó y pesa 250      Cache   Translate Page      

El tirón que sufrió Vladimir Guerrero en un músculo oblicuo ha llevado a muchos, desde fanáticos hasta miembros de los medios, a preguntarse si hay algún problema con la preparación física del mejor prospecto de todo el béisbol.

Guerrero generó reacciones el mes pasado cuando los Azulejos anunciaron que estaba pesando 250 libras (113 kilos). Es una diferencia bien grande con respecto a las 200 libras (90 kilos) que tenía cuando firmó. Y aunque no hay dudas con respecto a su bate, podría haber interrogantes sobre otros elementos de su juego.

Se espera que el pelotero de 20 años pierda el resto de los entrenamientos de primavera debido a la lesión. Debería regresar a principios de temporada con Triple-A Buffalo, pero la oportunidad de quedarse con el equipo grande desde el Día Inaugural –que tampoco iba a pasar, en todo caso—ha sido cerrada oficialmente.

“No estamos preocupados”, respondió Mark Shapiro, presidente de los Azulejos, cuando se le preguntaron si tenía alguna preocupación con respecto a la condición física de Guerrero. “Yo creo que hemos sido consistentes desde el primer día. Hay una herramienta del juego de Vladimir que sobrepasa de lejos al resto de los aspectos de su desarrollo. Obviamente nos preocupan todas esas otras piezas de su juego, que están tratando de alcanzar a su bateo”.

“Yo hablé sobre Manny Ramírez y el reto que tuvimos en Cleveland por mucho tiempo. Me siento igual. Es un poco injusto tomar a un muchacho de 19 o 20 años y decir, ‘Esperamos que te comportes como un veterano de Grandes Ligas. Esperamos que te manejes bien, que cada aspecto de tu vida dentro y fuera del terreno, tu preparación, tu corrido de bases, esté al nivel de tu bate’. Estamos trabajando esas cosas ahora mismo, preguntándonos cómo podemos apurar eso”.

Guerrero se lesionó la semana haciendo swing. Pero es bueno apuntar que hasta los peloteros en mejor forma han tenido problemas similares con músculos oblicuos. Nadie cuestionó la preparación de Brett Lawrie cuando estaba en Toronto y sufrió distintos tirones.

Más que un asunto de acondicionamiento, está lesión específica podría estar atada al violento swing de Guerrero. Genera mucho de su poder natural con su mecánica, pero también hace swing con tanta fuerza que pareciera ser susceptible a ese tipo de dolencias.

“Son cosas que pasan, así que si eso es lo que dicen los exámenes y lo que tengo que hacer, yo lo que tengo es que recuperarme y estar listo para cuando vuelva”, dijo Guerrero. “Las lesiones son parte del béisbol y entiendo eso. Voy a trabajar duro para volver después del Spring Training”.

Guerrero tenía cuatro hits en 19 turnos esta primavera con una carrera empujada y una anotada. El dominicano probablemente no será una opción para ser ascendido a las Mayores sino hasta finales de abril tras este último percance, y Brandon Drury seguirá ocupándose de la tercera base hasta el día de su ascenso.

“Apesta”, dijo el manager de los Azulejos, el boricua Charlie Montoyo, sobre la lesión. “No quieres que nadie se lesiona y pierda turnos en los entrenamientos, pero es un muchacho joven, y el problema no es tan grave como pensábamos. Son tres semanas. Estará bien”.

          Giants were reportedly heavily shopping Odell Beckham Jr.      Cache   Translate Page      
The New York Giants’ decision to trade star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on Tuesday lends credence to the idea that we shouldn’t pay attention to lip service team executives offer the public. Giants general manager Dave Gettleman said on more than one occasion that the team was not looking to trade OBJ. The latest comment from the now-embattled GM came during the recent NFL Scouting Combine. Apparently, that was all smoke and mirrors. According to multiple media reports, the Giants were actively shopping OBJ. NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport all but confirmed this. Given that New York received below-market value for Beckham Jr., it seems that the market wasn’t necessarily strong for the star pass catcher. Ultimately, New York moved Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns for a first and third-round pick as well as safety Jabrill Peppers. This isn’t a haul indicative of a player that was on a record-setting career pace before an injury-plagued 2017 season. In any event, the Giants are turning into an utter laughingstock. T
          Report: Odell Beckham Jr. was 'a little surprised' by trade to Browns      Cache   Translate Page      
Odell Beckham Jr. knew his name was in and out of trade rumors, but he still apparently was surprised to hear he had been traded. Beckham was traded by the New York Giants to the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday for a first and third-round pick, and safety Jabrill Peppers. According to SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano, Beckham was “a little surprised” to learn of the deal. WFAN’s Kim Jones says Beckham called the trade “bittersweet” and said he was trying to process the news. Beckham had just signed a new contract with the Giants last year, which probably made him believe he would be staying. Comments from the team’s GM in January probably helped him feel that way. The truth is he’ll be much better off in Cleveland. The Browns are ascending and have a young, emerging quarterback. The Giants seem to be going in the opposite direction.
          Giants are NFL's worst run organization after Odell Beckham Jr. trade      Cache   Translate Page      
The New York Giants were said to be asking for an astronomical return for star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. In fact, general manager David Gettleman noted that he didn’t sign OBJ to a massive extension last August to turn around and trade him. Despite all of this, New York sent the game’s most electrifying receiver to the Cleveland Browns for a first and third-round pick and safety Jabrill Peppers on Tuesday evening (more on that here). That’s the deal Gettleman was holding out for? If so, he got absolutely fleeced by his counterpart in Cleveland, John Dorsey. This deal now proves that the New York Football Giants are the worst-run organization in the NFL. Cap hit: The Giants incur a huge dead cap hit by trading OBJ. New York will pay $16 million against the cap by moving Beckham Jr. He’s not even going to be playing for the team. Unlike the Antonio Brown trade in Pittsburgh, OBJ had not forced the issue. He didn’t demand a trade. New York was negotiating out of a position of strength. And it still takes
          Browns Super Bowl odds dramatically increase after Odell Beckham Jr. trade      Cache   Translate Page      
In major breaking news on Tuesday, the New York Giants traded wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns. Needless to say, this move has quickly increased the Browns’ odds to 14/1 to win Super Bowl 54. Just take a look here. The Browns and Green Bay Packers actually sit with tied odds. In what NFL universe would we have ever seen a team that managed just one win during the 2016-17 seasons compare with Aaron Rodgers and Co.? Note that 14/1 is not too far down the totem pole from the Chiefs, Patriots, Saints and Rams. We are now talking big-boy teams. The Browns are doing all the right things over the past two offseasons. The OBJ trade magnifies this further. It would not be surprising at all if they won the AFC North in 2019 and visited the postseason

The LSU Tigers flexed on Twitter after the Cleveland Browns acquired Odell Beckham Jr. in a trade with the New York Giants on Tuesday. Back in August, when there were trade rumors surround Beckham prior to him signing a contract extension with the Giants, LSU told the Browns to “get the duo back together.” That was a reference to Beckham and Jarvis Landry, who were receivers together at LSU. When the trade went down, LSU said “thanks for listening.” Beckham was at LSU from 2011-2013 and caught 143 passes for 2,340 yards and 12 touchdowns. Landry was there the same three years and had 187 catches, 1,809 yards and 15 touchdowns. And now they’re together with the Browns, giving Baker Mayfield some excellent options.

An absolute bombshell of a trade came through on Tuesday when the Cleveland Browns acquired Odell Beckham Jr. in a trade with the New York Giants. Cleveland is trading a first and third-round pick (their second third-round pick in the 2019 draft) and Jabril Peppers for Beckham (according to Adam Schefter), and they may give him a new contract. The trade reunites Beckham with his former LSU teammate Jarvis Landry and pairs him with up-and-coming quarterback Baker Mayfield. The deal left folks on Twitter stunned, to the point that NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo ended his report by saying “I am not joking.” Other Twitter reactions centered around the excitement in Cleveland and Mayfield. After decades of being the biggest embarrassment in the league, the Browns are now completely legit. They are a serious playoff team. Watch out, NFL.

Fans in Cleveland better get their popcorn ready for the upcoming season. The Browns acquired wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr in a trade with the New York Giants on Tuesday, as first reported by NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo. The trade finally puts an end to rumors that have been circulating for over a year about the Giants potentially trading Beckham. The Browns had been mentioned since last week as a likely destination for him. The price Cleveland is paying is hefty. They are trading safety Jabril Peppers, a first-round pick and third-round pick to the Giants as part of the deal, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Giants signed Beckham to a 5-year, $90 million contract last year but seemingly had buyer’s remorse immediately. He only played in 12 games last season, catching 77 passes for 1,052 yards and 6 touchdowns.

          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.

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 un
