          The Latest: RB Zenner gets extension from Lions      Cache   Translate Page      
The Detroit Lions have agreed to a one-year contract extension with running back Zach Zenner. The 27-year-old Zenner rushed for 265 yards on 55 carries in eight games with Detroit last season.
          Jim Hannan (#479)      Cache   Translate Page      
Jim Hannan had a surprisingly long (to me) career, pitching 9 seasons for the Senators from 1962-70, then his final 1971 season split between the Tigers and Brewers. I first became aware of him when I got his 1967 card that year, and always forgetting if his last name was "Hannan" or "Hannah".

Jim was signed by the Red Sox prior to the 1961 season, and after 1 year was lost to the Senators in the minor-league draft. (Sounds a lot like the Glenn Beckert story!)

He made his big-league debut with the Sens in April 1962.  Although spending much of May in the minors, he pitched in 42 games (all but 3 in relief) for Washington during his rookie season.

Hannan started the 1963 season with the Nats, but after 5 relief appearances, he was sent down in early-May, only returning in September.


This MLB/AAA yo-yo ride continued for most of Hannan's career. After playing the entire '64 season with the Senators (49 games, 7 starts), he spent most of 1965 in triple-A, making 30 starts for Hawaii and only 5 games (1 start) for the Senators.

1966? Jim played for the Senators the entire season, splitting his time between the rotation and the bullpen. 1967 was a repeat of his 1965 season – mostly pitching for triple-A Hawaii. (Hey, if you have to be in the minors, that's the place to be!)

The 1968 season was the reverse of '67. Hannan started the season with 7 starts in AAA (this time in cold Buffalo, not sunny Hawaii), then in late-May was recalled to Washington (for good, as it turned out). Jim started 22 games for the Nats and relieved in 3 others.

He was now a regular member of the rotation for the '68 and '69 seasons. (I don’t know if he improved, or the staff in general slipped. He DID have his highest strikeout totals in those 2 years, as well as some of his lowest ERA numbers.)

With the Senators' acquisition of George Brunet prior to the 1970 season, Hannan spent most of that year in the bullpen, only starting 17 of his 42 games (most of them in July and August). He was the #2 man behind closer Darold Knowles.

After the 1970 season, Hannan was traded to the Tigers (with pitcher Joe Coleman, shortstop Ed Brinkman, and 3rd baseman Aurelio Rodriguez) for pitchers Denny McLain and Norm McRae, 3rd baseman Don Wert, and outfielder Elliott Maddox. (This deal seems like a bust for the Senators!)

Jim only lasted 5 weeks with Detroit. After only 7 games (11 innings) he was flipped to the Brewers in mid-May for pitcher John Gelnar and outfielder Jose Herrera. Hannan compiled a 1-1 record in 21 games over the rest of the season, then was released on December 31st. (Happy New Year!)

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

          Staring death in the face taught Aetna's former CEO how to be a more human leader      Cache   Translate Page      

mark bertolini

  • Mark Bertolini served as the CEO of Aetna from 2010 to 2018, stepping down after selling the healthcare company to CVS.
  • In a new memoir, he reflects on how both his and his son's near-death experiences made him a more empathetic leader focused on team-building.
  • At Aetna, Bertolini increased the minimum wage to $16 an hour, increased health benefits, paid off student loans, and instituted mindfulness training.
  • C-Suite Insider is a collection of exclusive interviews with leaders of the world's largest companies.

Mark Bertolini wears a large, black skull ring on his right hand. It's a memento mori for the former Aetna CEO, a symbol of his mortality. He bought it after waking up from a six-day coma in 2004, when a skiing accident broke his neck in five places and resulted in his left arm being permanently disabled. It happened just a year after his teenage son Eric managed to beat lymphoma. When he looks at the skull, he's reminded that "who you spend your time with and how you spend it every day are the two most important decisions you will make," he told Business Insider.

We spoke with Bertolini in late February, at the CECP's CEO Investor Forum, and ahead of the release of his new memoir, "Mission-Driven Leadership."

The exec, who grew up in Detroit, says he was the first member of his blue-collar family to attend college. He worked his way through the healthcare industry before making it to the top job at Aetna in 2010.

Bertolini's last act as CEO was closing the $69 billion sale of Aetna to CVS Health in a deal that made CVS CEO Larry Merlo the chief executive of both companies and left Aetna president Karen Lynch as Bertolini's successor.

His time at the health-insurance provider was marked by an average of 20% annual growth of earnings per share, and a revamping of employee benefits that included a minimum wage increase to $16 an hour and the widespread implementation of yoga and meditation classes. He developed a passion for the latter after kicking a painkiller habit that arose in the wake of his accident. These healthier habits also led to the adoption of Buddhism and the abandonment of a ruthless executive persona employees once characterized as "Darth Vader."

"I often say to people that I've been uniquely prepared to do the work I do given the personal experiences I've had and the things I've had to live with," he said. "And while I wouldn't change a bit of it if I had the chance, I would not recommend it as a developmental pathway!"

We talked about some of these experiences, and how writing his book gave him a chance to reflect on them.

The following interview was edited for clarity and length.

Letting go of Darth Vader

Mark Bertolini: It was 2001 when Eric got sick. I'd sold my first company in '94, and my second company in 1998. I got paid a lot of money, and I was living in this mansion on the mountain in Avon, Connecticut. I was just back from Italy, and all of a sudden my son got sick and my money didn't matter, my position didn't matter. What I realized over a period of three or four months is that I had to personally engage. What I realized in that personal engagement is how little time I had spent with him. So I literally lived in his hospital room with him — I even moved a bed in there.

He was in the hospital about a year, and then in and out for a few months after that. But I just left work.

I had PubMed on the laptop, "Harrison's [Principles of] Internal Medicine" text with a bunch of little sticky notes, and I grilled the medical team every morning: "What are we doing today? Why does it matter? Where do I read about it?" And it was through that process that we got two drugs approved for him and ultimately, it saved his life and then it was five years later, I gave him my left kidney because his kidneys were damaged by the cure. But all of that was so humbling.

And then my injury happened. I was the guy that, at 184 pounds, 8% body fat, ran four miles every morning, worked out at the gym. I was in tip-top shape. I was 47 years old and all of a sudden, I hit a tree and none of that worked anymore, and I was like, "Oh my God, what a disaster." After my son's illness and then that, it was like, "OK, this isn't about me."

Richard Feloni: Are you referring to life in general?

Bertolini: Yes, life in general. In the middle of all that, I left the Catholic church over the whole Boston abuse revelations. And so I was all of a sudden non-religious. I was in incredible pain. I was on seven different narcotics, and to come out of that, you have to reinvent who you are. I first tried to get it all back and realized that wasn't going to work if I had my motorcycles, if I had my bicycle.

I had to reinvent everything, and in that reinvention come face-to-face with the narcissism, the lack of humility, all those other sorts of things.

Feloni: Weren't you known as "Darth Vader" before this?

Bertolini: Yes, yes I was, [because] I was not afraid to make decisions. If you're willing to make [a decision] and you're willing to monitor the progress of the decision you made, you'll make it better as you go along. But most people won't make a decision because they're afraid of being wrong, which most decisions are until you get into it.

Feloni: Did thinking about things that were bigger than yourself help you become a more empathetic leader?

Bertolini: It did. I went through an evolution of having all the answers to realizing I had very few answers, and I started engaging the group and learning from them. I had some brain injury from the accident, so I had to go through all of that realizing who I was and what my role was going to be. Not working was not an option for me — although I could've done that.

Investing in employees before it was cool

Feloni: How long from this point did it take you to get to this idea of being (as you've put it) a "radical capitalist"?

Bertolini: I did things before anybody else was talking about doing them: Raising minimum wage, waiving out-of-pocket costs, paying back student loans, paying people to sleep, investing in the employees. I had come up with the notion that talent was more scarce than capital, and I was asking, "What is it we need to believe in order to take this set of risks and be successful?"

It was actually the yoga and mindfulness that opened the whole door for the rest of it. I was doing that to deal with my pain. I wasn't taking opioids — I still don't — and I came to work and said to the senior team, "I think we should have everybody learn yoga mindfulness." And they all nodded politely because I was the president at the time, and then about an hour later, the chief medical officer came in and said, "Mark, this is voodoo medicine. You're crazy. We all think you're crazy. Just because you do it doesn't mean everybody else has to do it." And I said, "OK, well what do you need to do to believe it?" And he said, "We need to do a double-blind study."

So we did, and two months after the double-blind study with Duke was done, he came and said, "You're not going to believe this: It actually works."

It took a long time, way longer than I wanted to, but it was about a year where I finally said to the team, OK, I'm tired of talking about spreadsheets. We're gonna raise minimum wage from $12 to $16 an hour, and we're going to wipe out healthcare costs for everybody under 300% of the poverty level.

And when we did that and watched the results, it was amazing. Our employee engagement went up 1,200% not only in those employees, but in the whole company. What happened next was the most profound piece: Everybody started coming back to me with ways we could take care of each other.

I talk about the four levels of leadership. The first level is your employees hate you. The second level is your employees fear you. The third level is your employees praise you. The fourth level, you're invisible because your organization takes care of itself and that's what happened the last three, four years.

That's the legacy I want to leave: An organization of people that get it, they make it better, they keep it going. I don't need to tell people what to do.

How to know when it's time to move on

Feloni: With the book, you took time to look back on your career. What's next for you, and what do you want to accomplish?

Bertolini: I don't live the lifestyle of the traditional CEO — I come from a pretty humble background. When the deal closed, I had almost three million shares of stock, and I never used it because I didn't need it. So the vast majority of that has gone into taxes, my family foundation (called Anahata), and then trusts for grandchildren and children. My wife and I kept a little bit of it, but the majority of it is in the foundation.

The idea there is to use that foundation to create community, and to focus on three things. First, in education. My wife works in the Harlem schools with kids on literacy. Second is the environment, and we've invested heavily in preserving carbon sinks, so buying forest land that will never be built on or chopped down. And then sustainability, how do we create sustainable communities. That will be the work, and I'll be engaged in that because it's interesting to me and exciting for me. I'm on a number of boards of directors.

So that's sort of occupying my time. I probably won't jump into a full-time job unless I'm dragged back into it. I want a portfolio of interesting things to do. I've been working since I was 13, so it would be kind of nice at 62 not to have to work anymore and make decisions tougher than what kind of coffee do I grind this morning.

Feloni: What's your best leadership advice?

Bertolini: Setting goals only establishes disappointment. The deeper understanding one should have is what is it that you do really well, that you love to do, and look for work that supports that. And if you do that, you'll have an incredible career.

My proclivities are to fix broken things and build new things. I hate just making sure the trains run on time. I always hire people that can do that part really well, and I've been surrounded by people like that for the last 20 years. I've been able to look at what's next, what can we fix, what can we make better. Because if things are running really well, I'll tinker with them just to see if they can be better than they are.

I've never looked for a job other than my first job. The phone's always rang to offer me something. People will call me and say [they've] got this issue or that issue. If it's something I like, I'll offer to help. That's how I've gotten every job I've had — and because it's work I love to do and I do it well, I have a lot of fun doing it.

Probably the hardest part [of retiring] is you should be prepared when you're done to have things you need to do that are just as interesting, otherwise you'll regret the fact that you don't have a job anymore. I think that's where a lot of CEOs in particular fail.

Feloni: Did you leave Karen Lynch with strategic insights before departing your role?

Bertolini: Oh yeah, Karen worked with me for a long time. It was a very purposeful development process for her, and I think she's going to be in a great place. She has every opportunity to run that company [CVS] one day and I think she can do it, and I'm going to support her in trying to achieve that.

When I handed her the president's job, I said to her, "At some point you will realize you've been doing the president's job too long because you'll see an issue and you'll go, ‘I know how to do that. I did that [back then],' and that's when you make mistakes."

The leading cause of failure is success. When it became too rote for me, I knew I needed to have somebody else do it. She's taken it to a whole different level. Again, the legacy is that she took things I had figured out and she made them better, and she has built her own things that she'll pass on to somebody else. And that's what [former Aetna CEO] Ron Williams did with me. That's what real legacies are, the work they leave behind. She's got a big job to do. I think she'll do fine.

           Middlesex (Jeffrey Eugenides) – DLS 2019      Cache   Translate Page      

Título: Middlesex
Autor: Jeffrey Eugenides
Mês: Março
Tema: Um livro ganhador do prêmio Pulitzer
Editora Companhia das Letras, 576p.

Cal Stephanides, nascido Calíope Helen Stephanides, vive em Berlim. Ao relembrar sua história, percorre os caminhos de três gerações de sua família, quando seus avós se mudaram do vilarejo onde moravam nas encostas do Monte Olimpo para Detroit, nos Estados Unidos. Na época da Lei Seca, a cidade estava em pleno desenvolvimento até os protestos da população negra obrigarem a família a se mudar pra Michigan, quando ela tinha doze anos. Criada como menina, Cal desde cedo desenvolve um interesse em meninas (ela não conhece a própria anatomia). A medida que cresce, conhece pessoas que a ajudam a entender a si mesmo.

Nasci duas vezes: primeiro como uma bebezinha, em janeiro de 1960, num dia notável pela ausência de poluição no ar de Detroit; e de novo como um menino adolescente, numa sala de emergências nas proximidades de Petoskey, Michigan, em agosto de 1974.

Esse livro é bem diferente e nada do que eu imaginava que seria quando vi o título e a capa. Mesmo que os acontecimentos sejam narrados com lentidão, a história não deixa de chamar atenção, mas uma observação: por causa do tema, o leitor precisa ter a mente aberta. Milton, Tessie, Desdêmona, Esquerdinha, o livro está lotado de personagens interessantes, além, obviamente, do próprio Cal. É muito difícil fazer uma resenha de um livro assim sem sair contando logo a história inteira. Eu recomendo porque gostei de como o personagem a própria história como se fosse a de outra pessoa.

Shot in Detroit, 42 Dugg and Yo Gotti's "You Da One" visual comes to us courtesy of acclaimed director Jerry Production. "The song was just made organically me and Gotti vibing—in the studio feeding off each other talking crazy," Dugg shared with Complex. "Far as the video we was really tryna show the world like the regular day in Detroit but the turnt side like us really in the hood cutting up." "I [brought] him out to one of my shows in Detroit and he rocked it," Gotti explains. "Duggs rocks with me and Duggs rock with Lil Baby and he wanted us both involved. We're worldwide hustlers you can be from anywhere if you got it you got it." Speaking to Billboard previously, Yo Gotti also called 42 Dugg a "superstar." "He’s got the voice, music, look, and the hustle," Gotti shares. "I spent the last couple of weeks moving around with him. Just in Detroit alone, I watched him and how he moves and how ppl react to his presence and his music. Also, how he takes his shit serious. I’m all in!"

          Redskins Le'Veon Bell Eagles Packers Bears Raiders chatter      Cache   Translate Page      

The longer the Le’Veon Bell saga drags out, the more it becomes likely that teams not named the Jets and Ravens will get in on the action. Longtime NFL reporter Chris Mortensen said this afternoon on ESPN TV that there are several teams lurking in the market for Bell if he is to go for lower than market value. There have also been several reports that the Ravens are simply in this to drive up the price.

In any event, here are the teams that Mortensen is likely talking about who could get in on the sweepstakes at this late hour: the Eagles, Bears, Redskins, Packers, 49ers and Raiders. Darren Rovell of the Action Network tweeted the following late Tuesday afternoon: What would happen to a team’s Super Bowl odds at FanDuel Sportsbook if they acquired Le’Veon Bell?

Jets from 80/1 to 60/1

Redskins from 80/1 to 66/1

Bears from 16/1 to 12/1

Raiders from 65/1 to 50/1

Eagles from 16/1 to 14/1

Ravens from 26/1 to 18/1

Bet Now

SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano reported yesterday that there was no noise on the Bell to the Colts front. And the Redskins are now one of the sleepers after losing wide receiver Jamison Crowder to the Jets. Washington would still have to do some major cap maneuvering to fit Bell but it is not out of the question.

ESPN’s Field Yates was talking all day about how the Bears created a good chunk of change to spend in free agency by converting $13 million of Khalil Mack’s base salary and roster bonus into a signing bonus. And there has been little noise of the Packers being involved in the Bell sweepstakes despite Bell having changed some of his social media profile to the color green (that got Jets fans excited as well).

 


          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.

As the snow begins to fall, little does she know who or what awaits her there. Inspired by the border ballads, The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart is delivered in a riotous romp of rhyming couplets and devilish encounters.

The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart stars actors Becca A. Lewis in the role of Prudencia and Brooks Reeves as Colin Syme, Prudencia's academic arch nemesis who is hoping for more than an academic relationship with her, with Music Direction by David Reiffel.

Becca A. Lewis has appeared in numerous Apollinaire productions including Three Sisters, Informed Consent, The Sonic Life of a Giant Tortoise, and Detroit. Other recent roles include The Women Who Mapped the Stars (Central Square Theater with the Nora), Revolt. She said. Revolt again (CompanyOne- Dig Boston's Best Performance), Splendor (CompanyOne), GRIMM (CompanyOne- IRNE Supporting Actress), The Big Meal (Zeitgeist Stage- Elliot Norton nomination Outstanding Actress, Ensemble), Tigers Be Still (Zeitgeist Stage- Elliot Norton nomination Outstanding Actress, Production), A Behanding in Spokane (Theatre on Fire), Far Away, Vinegar Tom, Fen (Whistler in the Dark). Becca co-created and performs in The Pineapple Project with Queer Soup, an original piece for kids celebrating gender diversity.

Brooks Reeves recently played Bottom in our Midsummer Night's Dream, his ninth show with Apollinaire, having previously appeared in Three Sisters, The Visit, Hamlet, Brilliant Adventures, Midsummer, From White Plains, Blood Wedding, and the Norton winning Stupid Fucking Bird. Winner of the 2015 IRNE Award for best supporting actor (small company), Brooks has worked with the Golddust Orphans (Legally Blind: The Hellen Keller musical), with Bridge Rep (Julius Caesar, The Libertine), Stoneham Theater (Neville's Island), Company One (An Octaroon, Shockheaded Peter), Central Square Theater (Arabian Nights), Zeitgeist Stage (Love! Valour! Compassion!, Bent, Boys in the Band), Hub Theatre of Boston, Brown Box, Happy Medium, and Bad Habit Productions. Last spring he made his Boston area directing debut at Apollinaire with Winter Solstice and returned this season to direct The Christians.
David Reiffel recently created the sound scape for salt piano for our summer production of Midsummer Night's Dream, David's 17th show with Apollinaire. Recent national credits include Shakespeare in Love (US premiere) Twelfth Night, Romeo and Juliet (Oregon Shakespeare Festival) and Cymbeline (Shakespeare & Co.). Most recently he musical directed The Cradle Will Rock at BoCo@Berklee and Man of La Mancha at New Rep, for which he received the 2018 Elliot Norton Award for Outstanding Musical Direction. David designs sound and creates original music regularly at New Rep, SpeakEasy, Actors Shakespeare Project, Gloucester Stage, Stoneham/Greater Boston, Israeli Stage, and many others.

Павел Иванович Сидоров
ректор Северного государственного медицинского университета, заслуженный деятель науки Российской Федерации, директор Северного научного центра Российской Академии Медицинских Наук, академик Российской Академии Медицинских Наук, доктор медицинских наук, профессор. Родился в Архангельске, в семье преподавателей Архангельского лесотехнического института. Еще в 8-м классе Павел Сидоров решил стать психиатром. В то время, когда он поступил на лечебный факультет Архангельского государственного медицинского института, а это был 1970 год, психиатрию изучали только на пятом курсе. Однако первокурсником он настоял на том, чтобы ему разрешили пройти обучение по этому предмету вольнослушателем. Он также занимался в психиатрическом студенческом научном кружке. Тема научной работы “Подростковая наркология”, предложенная на кафедре психиатрии, захватила 17-летнего юношу. Результаты своих изысканий он изложил в докладе “Формирование алкогольных установок у несовершеннолетних”. А в 1974 году, благодаря вниманию ректората вуза, общественных организаций и руководителей города и области к работе студента 4-го курса П.И.Сидорова и при их поддержке, в Архангельске был открыт первый в стране подростковой наркологический кабинет, который стал начальным звеном современной подростковой наркологической службы и до сих пор функционирует в структуре областного наркологического диспансера. Через десять лет такие кабинеты были открыты во всех областных центрах страны. Вклад П.И.Сидорова в разработку методов профилактики отклоняющегося поведения подростков был отмечен знаком ЦК ВЛКСМ “За активную работу в комсомоле”. Еще со студенческой скамьи и затем в течение 14 лет П.И.Сидоров возглавлял Архангельский областной совет молодых ученых и специалистов. На XII Всемирном фестивале молодежи и студентов в Москве в 1986 году он представлял Архангельскую область и был отмечен медалью “За трудовое отличие”. Помимо психиатрии в студенческие годы Павел Сидоров активно участвовал в студенческой самодеятельности как сценарист, режиссер и актер, был членом бюро обкома комсомола. При этом он все глубже проникал в тему наркомании в молодежной среде. К окончанию института им был собран большой материал по этой теме в результате обследования школьников Архангельска, Ленинграда и Инты. Он регулярно выступал на всесоюзных научных конференциях, опубликовал 8 научных работ. Не случайно, что по распределению его оставили в клинической ординатуре на кафедре психиатрии АГМИ. Уже через год в Северо-Западном книжном издательстве вышли методические рекомендации “Антиалкогольное воспитание в школе”, составленные профессором И.Д.Муратовой и ординатором П.И.Сидоровым. За разработку системы антиалкогольного воспитания несовершеннолетних Павел Иванович в том же году был удостоен премии имени М.В.Ломоносова Архангельской областной комсомольской организации. Ко времени поступления в аспирантуру П.И.Сидоров уже накопил большой материал по теме своих исследований, что позволило ему в короткий срок подготовить и защитить кандидатскую диссертацию “Клинико-социальные аспекты алкоголизации и алкоголизма в подростковом и юношеском возрасте”. В 1984 году в издательстве Московского университета вышла его первая монография по проблемам подросткового алкоголизма, которую он посвятил своему учителю - профессору И.Д.Муратовой. По окончании аспирантуры Павел Иванович работал ассистентом кафедры психиатрии, где через семь лет на материале своих подопечных, судьбы которых он отслеживал все годы после защиты кандидатской диссертации, подготовил докторскую диссертацию “Патогенез алкоголизма у подростков и организация ранней профилактики в условиях Европейского Севера”. Защита ее состоялась в Ленинградском психоневрологическом НИИ имени В.М.Бехтерева в 1986 году. В 1987 году 34-летний доктор медицинских наук П.И.Сидоров стал одним из самых молодых профессоров среди ученых-медиков страны. В 1994 году он возглавил кафедру психиатрии родного института. Под руководством и при консультации профессора П.И.Сидорова выполнены и защищены 34 кандидатских и 26 докторских диссертаций. Работая в 1990-1993 годах проректором Архангельского государственного медицинского института по научной работе, Павел Иванович инициировал создание в АГМИ первого в России докторского диссертационного совета по новой специальности “безопасность, защита, спасение и жизнеобеспечение населения в чрезвычайных ситуациях”. В 1993 году профессор П.И.Сидоров был избран ректором Архангельского государственного медицинского института, имевшего тогда всего три факультета (лечебный, стоматологический и педиатрический). За прошедшие десять лет АГМИ дважды повысил свой статус: в 1994 году по итогам государственной аттестации он был преобразован в медицинскую академию, в 2000 году – в университет. Сегодня в Северном государственном медицинском университете 16 факультетов, в три раза увеличилось количество докторов медицинских наук и профессоров (60). На базе факультета социальных работников организован Международный социальный колледж. Архангельск стал “медицинской столицей” Европейского Севера России, а СГМУ - медицинским образовательным и научным центром региона. П.И.Сидоров - автор 24 монографий (из них 4 изданы за рубежом), 9 руководств, 4 учебников для вузов, 9 научно-популярных книг, 11 патентов на изобретения, более 250 журнальных статей (из них 34 опубликованы за рубежом). Монография Б.С.Братуся и П.И.Сидорова “Психология, клиника и профилактика раннего алкоголизма” (1984) отмечена дипломом Минздрава РСФСР как лучшая на республиканском конкурсе научных работ. В предисловии к руководству для врачей “Алкоголизм” (Ю.П.Лисицын, П.И.Сидоров, 1990) министр здравоохранения РСФСР А.И.Потапов оценил это издание как фундаментальную работу, а профессора П.И.Сидорова назвал одним из ведущих специалистов страны в области наркологии. Его двухтомник “Введение в клиническую психологию” (в соавторстве с А.В.Парняковым, 2000) и учебник “Клиническая психология” (2002) получили в Минздраве Российской Федерации статус учебников для студентов медвузов. Понимая всю важность экономических знаний, он не только сам получил дополнительно высшее экономическое образование и при этом добился открытия в СГМУ института менеджмента, который уже несколько лет готовит для системы здравоохранения Европейского Севера России специалистов с высшим и средним экономическим образованием. В 1995 году профессор П.И.Сидоров первым из российских ученых был избран членом-корреспондентом, а в 2000 году – действительным членом Российской Академии Медицинских Наук по специальности “экология человека”. Сегодня он один из самых молодых академиков Российской Академии Медицинских Наук, признанный лидер в области социальной наркологии и экологии человека, один из ведущих отечественных ученых в области социальной психиатрии и экологии человека. По инициативе П.И.Сидорова в СГМУ впервые в России начали преподавать студентам медицинскую экологию. Павел Иванович внес фундаментальный вклад в разработку проблем укрепления общественного здоровья и предупреждения социальных болезней, создал новые оригинальные методы лечения больных, страдающих алкоголизмом, табакокурением, наркоманией, избыточным весом. Академик П.И.Сидоров - организатор и главный редактор журналов Российской Академии Медицинских Наук “Экология человека” и “Наркология”, член редсоветов журналов “Сибирский вестник психиатрии и наркологии”, “Медицинский академический журнал”, “Психотерапия”, “Сексология и сексопатология”. Он является директором Северного научного центра Российской Академии Медицинских Наук (1995), членом правления Российского общества психиатров, членом научных советов Российской Академии Медицинских Наук по наркологии, истории и философским проблемам медицины, членом президиумов Российской Академии Наук высшей школы и Петровской Академии Наук и искусств, академиком Российской Академии Естественных Наук и многих общественных академий России, Международной академии наук, Всемирной академии медицины имени Альберта Швейцера, Нью-Йоркской Академии Наук и других. В 1992 году Российская ассоциация наркологов признала П.И.Сидорова лучшим врачом-наркологом года. Он удостоен почетного звания “Заслуженный деятель науки Российской Федерации” (1997), награжден орденом Почета, медалью “За трудовое отличие”, золотой медалью Альберта Швейцера, польским орденом “За заслуги в области здравоохранения”. Павел Иванович является кавалером Золотого почетного знака Национального фонда “Общественное признание”, лауреатом премии Международного Ломоносовского фонда. Увлекается историей и краеведением, более 30 лет собирает краеведческую литературу. В школьные и студенческие годы он работал экскурсоводом по Архангельску, Соловецким островам, был руководителем туристических групп по странам Балтии, Золотому кольцу России, Крыму, Кавказу, странам Восточной Европы. Живет и работает в Архангельске.

Иван Леонидович Кучин
автор-исполнитель в жанре русский шансон. Родился в простой рабочей семье. Отец - Леонид Иванович работал шофером, мама Нина Иннокентьевна была железнодорожником. Учился на художественно графическом отделении Улан-Удэнского педагогического училища. Служил в армии, в Забайкальском военном округе. Свой первый срок получил за кражу аппаратуры в доме культуры. Период с1980 по 1993 год Иван вспоминает неохотно и здесь биография ограничивается сухими фактами: четырежды судимый, он провел за решеткой в общей сложности 12 лет. Освободившись в последний раз в 1993 году из Абагура Лесного, ИТК-12 Иван, благодаря друзьям, начинает записывать песни. В 1995 году, не имея ни семьи, ни средств, ни постоянного места проживания, на свой страх и риск отправляется в Москву. Долгое время скитается по подвалам и чердакам, в то время когда его песни гремели по стране. И только в 1996 году при финансовой поддержке Новокузнецких бизнесменов снимает квартиру, налаживает быт, женится на молоденькой женщине и записывает альбом "Судьба воровская", который в 1997 став абсолютным лидером продаж, позволил Ивану Кучину встать на ноги, купить квартиру, построить современную студию и жить счастливо и богато.



Но, судьба и в этот раз нанесла жестокий удар: жена Лариса, которую он так любил, посвящал ей песни и вывел ее в люди - предала его. С 1998 года по 2001 новых альбомов не было. Единственная сестра, которая младше Ивана на 12 лет узнав, что брат остался один, погряз в бракоразводных процессах и разделах имущества, пришла ему на помощь. По рассказам самого Ивана, мать всегда хотела, чтобы дети жили вместе и, видимо, ее воля свершилась. В 2001 году выходит альбом "Царь Батюшка", который раскрывает автора как более зрелого и мудрого поэта. И такие песни как "Конь вороной", "Царь батюшка", "Вожатая", я уверена, войдут в историю Русской литературы. Именно за эти песни Иван был награжден орденом "За службу на Кавказе" северо-кавказким военным округом и лично генералом Трошиным Г.Н. И вот теперь Иван и Елена, оба, не имеющие семей, переехали из Москвы за 101 километр, в глухую деревню, где у них деревянный дом, сад, огород, музыкальная студия и масса дел, которые нужно успеть сделать.

Annabeth Gish (467x699, 42 Kb)
1971
Аннабет Гиш (Annabeth Gish)
американская актриса. Широкую известность получила благодаря ролям в сериалах «Секретные материалы» и «Братство». Когда Аннабет было два года, семья Гиш переехала в Сидар-Фоллс, штат Айова, где отцу предложили хорошую работу. У Аннабет есть брат Тим и сестра Робин. Она воспитывалась в скромной семье с консервативными устоями. Родители с детства прививали ей такие чувства, как честность, искренность, сострадание, любовь к работе. С восьми лет Аннабет активно участвовала в общественной деятельности и играла в местном детском театре. Театральный дебют Аннабет состоялся, когда она училась в третьем классе в пьесе «Уайли и Хэйримэн», где Аннабет доверили роль болота, нацепив на неё балахон. В этом же году Аннабет написала в своей тетради: «Я хочу быть кинозвездой». Много лет спустя Гиш скажет, что тогда у неё не было каких-то конкретных желаний относительно звёздной карьеры. Актрисой она решила стать уже в зрелом возрасте, а тогда просто искала пути самовыражения. Будучи ребёнком, Аннабет даже написала письмо легендарной актрисе Лилиан Гиш, в котором рассказала ей о своём желании стать актрисой. Однако Лилиан Гиш посоветовала юному дарованию быть как можно дальше от мира кино. Окончив в 1989 году Северную Университетскую Среднюю школу в Айове, Аннабет поступила в Герцогский Университет (Duke University), где специализировалась на изучении английского языка и литературы. В июле 1993 года, закончив университет с отличием и стипендией, она получила диплом и стала бакалавром гуманитарных наук. Для получения высшего образования Аннабет пришлось сделать четырёхлетний перерыв в своей актёрской карьере. В 1985 году, обойдя 700 претенденток, Аннабет получила свою первую роль в кино. Это был фильм Роберта Редфорда «Цветок пустыни» с участием Джона Войта, Эллен Баркин и ДжоБет Уильямс. Позже критики назовут его «Драмой ядерного века». Это история о тринадцатилетней Роуз Чисмор, которой приходится терпеть оскорбления отца-алкоголика, мать, не интересующуюся ничем, кроме азартных игр, и испытания ядерной бомбы, которые правительство решило провести всего в нескольких милях от их дома. Популярность Аннабет набрала обороты после того, как она в 1988 году вместе с Джулией Робертс и Мэттом Дэймоном снялась в культовом фильме «Мистическая пицца», в котором рассказывается о любовных приключения и житейских проблемах трёх юных подружек, работающих в пиццерии рыбацкого посёлка Мистик. Дальнейшая карьера складывалась вполне успешно. На сегодняшний день фильмография Аннабет насчитывает более 50 разных фильмов. В «Уайатт Эрп» (1994) она снялась с Кевином Костнером, в драме «Настоящие женщины» (1997) — с Даной Дилейни и Анжелиной Джоли, в фильме «Двойной просчёт», который вышел в 1999 году, её партнерами были Томми Ли Джонс и Эшли Джадд. В 2001 году Аннабет пригласили на съёмки «Секретных материалов», где она исполнила роль специального агента Моники Рейс, сначала в эпизоде «Этого не случилось», а потом ещё в трёх сериях до того, как вошла в основной актёрский состав 9-го сезона. Летом 2003 года Аннабет приняла участие в съёмках сериала «Западное крыло», где сыграла роль старшей дочери президента, Элизабет Бартлет Уэстин. Эта роль следует за работой в независимой романтической комедии «Связи», съёмки которой проходили весной 2003 года. В октябре 2004 Гиш приступила к работе над фильмом для ABC — «Безнадёга», основанном на одноимённом триллере Стивена Кинга. А перед этим она снялась в культовой драме Showtime «Братство», успех первого сезона которой превзошёл все ожидания. Аннабет с самого начала была большой поклонницей «Секретных материалов». Небольшая роль в этом телесериале сделала её известной во всём мире, а её героиня Моника Рейс стала самым любимым персонажем самой Аннабет. Чуть позже в одном из многочисленных интервью Аннабет скажет, что не было ещё ни одного фильма, в котором она была бы так предана своему персонажу. В работе над сериалом ей особенно помог Роберт Патрик, сыгравший напарника и друга Моники Рейс, Джона Доггетта. По словам Аннабет, без него она бы просто не выжила. Аннабет Гиш увлекается туризмом, любит читать и занимается йогой. Она замужем за каскадёром Уэйдом Алленом. В 2007 году у них родился сын Кэш Александер Аллен. Семья проживает в Беверли Хиллс.

          Volkswagen Group expands electric car plans      Cache   Translate Page      
Volkswagen ID hatch
The Volkswagen ID hatch will launch later this year
Group will now launch almost 70 full electric models by 2030, and says they will comprise around 40% of total vehicle sales

Volkswagen Group say it wants to sell 22 million fully-electric vehicles over the next ten years and has 70 different models in the pipeline, up from the 50 models it had previously planned.

The VW Group, whose brands include Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Seat, Skoda, Porsche and Volkswagen, had set the initial target of 50 EVs by 2030 as part of its 2017 ‘Roadmap E’ initiative. It now says that, by 2025, VW’s fleet CO2 footprint will be 30% lower than in 2015 with the total investment in ‘electrification’ reaching €30 billion (£25.6 billion) by 2023.

The first two electric vehicles out of the traps will be the Audi E-tron and Porsche Taycan. VW says that it has received around 20,000 ‘expression of interest’ for each of those vehicles.

These will be followed by the mainstream models based on the new MEB bespoke dedicated electric architecture, including three VWs (the ID hatch, Crozz, and Buzz) the Seat el-Born and production version of the Skoda Vision E. The MEB family models will have a maximum range of 340 miles. 

Volkswagen boss Herbert Diess said expanding the number of electric models means the projected number of full electric vehicles the group will build by 2030 will increase from 15 million to 22 million, comprising around 40% of the group’s vehicle fleet. He added that the new goal was part of an effort to make the VW Group CO2-neutral “in all areas from fleet to production to administration” by 2050.

Car firms are facing increasingly tough CO2 targets, and Diess said the VW Group’s goal was in line with those set out in the Paris Agreement on climate change to make Europe CO2-neutral by 2050.

Diess said that "VW is changing fundamentally", adding: "this supertanker is picking up speed and is becoming faster and more agile. VW is evolving from carmaker to software company." 

He added that in order to meet the cost of the VW Group’s electrification programme the group “must make further improvements in efficiency and performance in all areas”.

VW says that by 2022, it will have 13 factories - eight in Europe, four in China and one in the US - on three continents producing electric cars. The first MEB-based VW ID hatch will roll off the line at the re-fitted Zwickau plant at the end of this year.

VW says that wants the new MEB platform to become the "new standard for industry", although it has not yet found a major carmaker partner. However VW has secured a cooperation deal with Ford on building future vans and pick-ups, including the next-generation Amarok pick-up.

Other joint venture deals include Microsoft for the creation of the VW Automotive Cloud. VW Group Components has been established as an independent business which will cover battery life production from the mineral purchased to end-of-life recycling. The new division will also offer electric drive units ‘to third parties’.

VW also says that it wants to become more like a mobile phone company, with drivers ‘buying into’ the VW connected network. In the near future all VW cars will get an individual ID, allowing VW to be in direct connect with drivers.

The group has secured agreements with LG Chem, SKI, CATL and Samsung for supplies of battery cells, but is also looking at establishing a battery cell manufacturing facility in Europe. It is also working with QuantumScape on solid-state battery technology.

The VW Group says it has received more than 20,000 reservations each for the Audi E-tron and Porsche Taycan EVs that will launch later this year. Following the ID hatch, other brands will launch models based on MEB, including the Seat el-Born and production version of the Skoda Vision.

The VW Group is also investigating partnerships with other firms to help expand the use of the MEB platform, starting with a tie-up with e.Go mobile announced at the Geneva show recently.

VW Group: 2018 a success despite hit from WLTP changeover

Covering the VW Group's financial health last year, Diess described it as having "operative strength". He said: "2018 was a successful year despite the strong headwinds. We delivered 10.8m vehicles globally, up from 10.77m in 2017, which included 17 new models.

"VW’s total 2018 sales revenue was up slightly at 235bn (£200.7bn) with 17.1bn (£14.6bn) was profit. This was 7.3% return on sales, at the upper end of the Group’s target corridor’.

Diess said that VW’s biggest challenge in 2018 was the shift to the new WLTP fuel economy test regime in Europe: "This change over caused a downturn in sales and loss of market share, because numerous vehicles were delayed in coming to market. Having a complex product portfolio hit us and hit Audi very hard."

Diess predicted that it would be the end of April this year before all the Audi brand model variants would be in available at dealers.

The WLTP shock meant that the Group’s engine developers "were working around clock". As well as building more vehicle test cells, the VW brand reduced the number of model variants it offers by a massive 25%. Audi’s range reduction was even larger, by some 30% . Diess said these range simplifications also reduced fixed and manufacturing costs. 

He said that "WLTP will still be a challenge in 2019", adding that 99% of German market VW diesels have been "fixed".

All-Cloud vs. On-Premises vs. Hybrid: How 3 Businesses Chose the Right Infrastructure juliet.vanwage… Mon, 03/11/2019 - 10:21

Carvana is not a run-of-the-mill ­ used-car dealership: Its unique method of selling and distributing vehicles nationwide is disrupting the industry. So it should come as no surprise that the company deploys cutting-edge technology and IT infrastructure.

Shoppers can peruse cars online, see a 360-degree view of vehicles through special camera technology, arrange financing and finalize the sale — all within a few minutes and without a salesperson’s help. Buyers can receive their cars at home or visit one of Carvana’s signature, fully automated car vending machines, where they plop in giant coins and watch the machine dispense their new ride.

To provide the best customer service possible and ensure 24/7 uptime, Imran Kazi, Carvana’s senior director of technology services, has taken a hybrid approach. He’s deployed a small footprint of Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure at the company’s headquarters in Tempe, Ariz., for testing and ­development and at car inspection ­centers for local compute and storage needs. But the company’s website, ­applications and data are all hosted in the public cloud.

“We don’t want to reinvent the wheel by building a big data center infrastructure, then worrying about depreciating and failing hardware,” Kazi says. “We can focus on implementing and supporting the right software solutions and tools for our employees, which helps create better experiences for our customers.”

More businesses and nonprofits are moving their infrastructure to the cloud, now that it’s proven to be secure, reliable and cost-effective. But while cloud service providers can improve efficiencies and provide benefits such as redundancy and the ability to scale up and down quickly, the cloud is not always the best choice or necessarily the least expensive.

In some cases, it’s less costly to retain applications and data in-house, particularly if organizations have legacy or custom applications that are not easily migrated to the cloud. And companies concerned about latency or that have to comply with data regulations may need to keep workloads on-premises.

Some organizations have gone all-in on the public cloud. Some are sticking with traditional on-premises infrastructure or a private cloud, while others are using a mix. Analysts say companies and nonprofits have to decide what’s right for their unique requirements.

“Some see hybrid as a step on the way to the cloud,” says Frank Della Rosa, IDC’s research director for SaaS and Cloud. “Workloads sitting on-premises can eventually be moved, but some ­businesses still deal with latency and bandwidth concerns or data sovereignty and privacy issues. Those factors ­determine whether a workload is suitable for the public cloud, on-premises or private cloud.”

1. Hybrid Infrastructure Delivers Flexibility for Carvana

When Kazi joined Carvana in 2016, he had the opportunity to build the company’s IT infrastructure from scratch. At the time, the online auto retailer had spun off from its former parent company, but its applications and data still resided in the former parent’s data centers.

Kazi migrated customer-facing and business applications, such as customer relationship management and enterprise resource planning software, across several cloud providers, including Microsoft Azure. He also adopted Software as a Service offerings: RingCentral for unified communications and Google G Suite for email and collaboration.

He chose the commercial cloud for three primary benefits: It saves money. It provides the company the agility it needs for growth. And instead of having to manage infrastructure in the production environment, the cloud frees up IT staff for more strategic needs.

Kazi also built a private cloud across two data centers using Nutanix’s HCI appliances, which combine servers, storage, networking and virtualization into a small-footprint appliance.

These unified systems, which run on Nutanix’s license-free AHV hypervisor, are more energy efficient, easier to ­manage and easier to scale than traditional hardware. If the environment reaches capacity, Kazi can purchase new appliances and quickly configure them with Nutanix’s management software.

“We can easily expand as we grow and have more projects,” he says.

Since Kazi’s arrival, Carvana has grown rapidly nationwide, expanding from 11 cities to 96. It runs about 350 virtual machines across 25 clusters of Nutanix appliances. Data scientists, ­analysts and developers use them as a test and staging area for new applications and algorithms. The company uses analytics to understand customer preferences, discover new markets to enter and drive logistical efficiencies.

Through the private cloud, employees can fully test out applications and algorithms before deploying them in production in the public cloud. Having full control of in-house infrastructure aids that effort.

“We can understand every nuance of the software and what resources it takes, and then we figure out the best cloud platform to put it into production,” Kazi says.

The company also installs a Nutanix appliance in each of its car inspection centers, where 360-degree photo ­technology takes data-intensive pictures of the cars. “We need the infrastructure locally to upload the photos to the cloud,” Kazi says.

2. The Cloud Saves BARBRI Time and Money

The BARBRI Group, a Dallas-based legal education company that provides online prep courses for bar exams, has saved hundreds of thousands of ­dollars annually by shutting down its data centers and moving fully to Microsoft Azure.

About three years ago, the company had two redundant data centers in colocation facilities, but the IT infrastructure was reaching its end of life. Faced with a massive IT investment, the company went with the cloud because it was more cost-effective and efficient, says IT Director Mark Kaplan.

One reason is the scalability that the cloud offers to a seasonal business like BARBRI, which has its busy seasons in summer and winter. Instead of internal data centers running full-throttle year-round, Azure allows the company to spin up more resources during the demanding months and scale down during slow periods, Kaplan says.

It’s a huge financial savings,” he says. “We didn’t have to do a huge capital outlay, and then we ended up finding out that it’s just easier to manage.”

Cloud

Source: RightScale, “2018 State of the Cloud Report,” February 2018

BARBRI migrated to the cloud gradually. In 2016, Kaplan shut down one data center and operated half on-prem and half in the cloud. The company migrated to Azure’s Database as a Service offering, then it moved 250 applications.

“It allowed us to get used to working in the cloud, and if it failed, we could cut back to on-premises,” he explains.

The cloud effort was a success, however. So, in January 2017, Kaplan shut down the remaining data center and went all-cloud. The company uses Azure Backup for its virtual machines and changed from an expensive multiprotocol label-switching network to a ­software-defined WAN using Cisco Meraki switches. Microsoft manages the infrastructure and databases, while the BARBRI IT staff manages its own ­software and handles OS upgrades. The freed-up time allows the IT staff to pursue new projects, such as using machine learning to build online courses that adapt to students’ needs in real time.

3. Detroit Symphony Orchestra Sees the Advantages of HCI

At the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Jody Harper knew the organization’s three aging servers were near the end of life, but as a nonprofit with a tight budget, it hoped to prolong their life span as much as possible. In late 2017, however, the servers crashed, knocking out the symphony’s website and preventing its 75 full-time employees from working for a full day.

Harper got the 8-year-old servers running again, but it was just a temporary fix. He needed a long-term solution — and fast.

“If no one can buy tickets from our website, that’s money lost,” says Harper, senior director of technology and infrastructure.

Fortunately, he had done his homework and researched his options. Moving to the cloud was not realistic because it would require too much time and money to redesign the custom integration that exists between the symphony’s two most critical applications — its website and CRM software — for the cloud.

Instead, Harper wanted hyperconverged equipment. In the ensuing four weeks, he purchased and deployed three Scale Computing hyperconverged appliances because of their affordability and ease of use.

“For a nonprofit, cost is, hands-down, a major factor,” he says. “It’s also simple and easy. I can spin up a new server in 10 clicks.”

Today, 25 virtual servers run on the Scale equipment, including financial and event management software, databases and file and print servers.

A hybrid cloud approach is still a future option, however. To improve disaster recovery, Harper is considering using the public cloud as a backup site. In the meantime, he recently purchased a fourth Scale appliance to replicate data in a separate location.

“It’s a reliable product. It’s made our lives easier, and now we have a fourth one for disaster purposes,” he says.

If I've learned anything these past few years and even more so in the past few weeks is that we are not guaranteed another tomorrow.

Grandpa S. turned 100 this past December. I want to make sure that I have a time to sit and visit with him and find out more about his history. It's going to be a special visit.

As I packed for this trip yesterday I saw a Facebook status from my uncle. My Grandpa C.--my dad's father--passed away yesterday. I won't have another tomorrow with him. I didn't have very many yesterdays with him either. This makes me sad. 



Grandpa C. was 88 when he passed away. He served as a police officer in Detroit, was a successful business man in , and so much more that I don't even know because this life I live doesn't give me as many todays with those I love as I would like.

          The City Of Dallas Needs A Homebuilding Boom To Ensure Economic Success      Cache   Translate Page      

While the North Texas economy is booming, the core city of Dallas faces challenges bedeviling other cities: a dwindling middle class, bifurcation into neighborhoods of haves and have-nots, and an emerging home affordability problem.

Dallas urgently needs to shift to a more inclusive and sustainable pattern of growth. This demands a homebuilding boom focused on middle- and lower-income families, especially in southern Dallas.

Middle-income families increasingly can't afford to live in the city's thriving neighborhoods and don't want to live in its struggling ones. For lower-income families, rising housing costs are eating up people's income and putting upward mobility out of reach.

These challenges are partly a side effect of the city's boom. But they're also the product of underinvestment in schools, infrastructure and modern amenities, as well as policies preventing housing supply from keeping up with demand.

The median price for a single-family home in Dallas County is up 73 percent since 2007. And the median price is now, based on federal standards, 86 percent above affordable levels for median families. One-third of homeowners and more than half of renters are housing cost-burdened.

The housing price challenge reflects inadequate growth and reinvestment in the housing stock. Construction has lagged far behind the pace of the late 20th century. Virtually all multifamily development since 2016 has been in the luxury segment.

Dallas also remains among America's most economically segregated cities. According to a 2015 study by University of Toronto professor Richard Florida, North Texas is the seventh most economically segregated of the 53 metro areas with more than a million people. And 37 percent of Dallas children live in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty, higher than all but a handful of cities.

The growing separation of Dallas into thriving and struggling neighborhoods has huge economic implications. A city should be an engine of opportunity for its citizens, but vast zones of concentrated poverty block upward mobility for the families who live there.

Harvard University economist Raj Chetty has shown that an individual's prospects depend heavily on where he or she lives. One factor: Social capital varies enormously across neighborhoods. People living in areas with low poverty, high civic engagement, and high home-ownership rates also have better life outcomes.

Also, the nearby quality of life strongly influences where employers locate jobs. Bringing job-creating businesses to areas where few skilled workers wish to live is a near-impossible task.

Dallas also needs to address the rising costs these patterns impose on the regional economy. Growing physical separation between workers and jobs causes severe market inefficiencies, with labor shortages in high-opportunity areas, as businesses in fast-growing cities north of Dallas can attest.

And Dallas must ask itself what it means for social cohesion if most police officers, teachers, chefs, plumbers, and other middle-income professionals live far outside the central city, as is increasingly the case.

What's needed is a massive building boom to redress Dallas' supply-demand imbalance. City hall's new housing policy is a good start, but it's not enough.

The city's policy scope should be broadened to include neighborhoods with abundant land and proximity to downtown and Uptown job markets, such as Fair Park and the Bottom area near the Trinity River, as detailed in a new report by the George W. Bush Institute. In 2018, these neighborhoods didn't qualify as redevelopment areas for city resources aimed at lower-income housing. But the revitalization of the city's central neighborhoods will likely reach them before long because of their location, and the city's housing policy should nudge this process along.

City hall should overhaul its decades-old zoning law for multifamily neighborhoods, as Detroit has done, to permit greater height and density and reduce or scrap minimum parking spot requirements. Accelerating approval times and deregulating over-restrictive provisions should also be a focus. Lighter-touch regulation would induce more developers to build walkable neighborhoods with mixed-use, mixed-income housing, making the city more attractive to families that might otherwise choose the suburbs, while addressing the supply gap.

New voluntary "inclusionary zoning" rules, currently under review, should be passed to offer multifamily developers breaks on density restrictions in exchange for including affordable units in new developments.

Public authorities and nonprofits should partner to create deeper land bank resources, securing cheap land for future construction. Land banks should have greater opportunities to set aside parts of the vast land stocks held by the city and Dallas ISD for new housing development aimed at working-class families. And the city should aggressively incentivize rehab work, as small investments can make all the difference in stabilizing neighborhoods.

While markets generally work well in allocating land to its best use and adapting to fast-changing realities, wise government has an irreplaceable role in promoting more inclusive urban prosperity. Above all, this means getting the basics right - K-12 education, public safety and quality-of-life amenities.

Public policy should also regulate the much-needed inflow of private capital to disadvantaged areas to contain displacement. But Dallas needs smart regulation, creating better incentives for developers. The cure for gentrification might be worse than the disease, if it means continued disinvestment in southern Dallas.

The good news: The city has greater opportunities to address these issues than most big U.S. cities, thanks to its vibrancy and relatively cheap, abundant land. With a better policy mix and concerted action, Dallas just might become a model for inclusive growth in the 2020s and beyond.

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.

          Despite Differences, Democrats Stick with Pelosi on Impeachment      Cache   Translate Page      
Democrats are largely lining up behind House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her wait-and-see strategy on any impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.   Moderate and even some of the most liberal House Democrats said they were supportive of the speaker after she told The Washington Post that she's not for impeachment, at least for now. Impeaching Trump is "just not worth it," Pelosi said, unless there's overwhelming support. While some in her caucus may disagree on certain points, the majority of Democrats endorsed Pelosi's approach.   House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said a unilateral pursuit of impeachment by Democrats would be an "exercise doomed for failure."   "I see little to be gained by putting the country through that kind of wrenching experience," he said at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.   House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings said impeachment "has to be a bipartisan effort, and right now it's not there." Cummings said his sense is that "this matter will only be resolved at the polls."   Even one of the strongest proponents of impeachment, freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, said Tuesday that she is "absolutely not" disappointed in Pelosi. Tlaib, who attracted attention the day she was sworn in by using a vulgarity in calling for Trump's removal, said the speaker has always encouraged her to represent her liberal Detroit district. Tlaib stressed that she is going to continue to push for impeachment, but echoed Democratic leaders' caution in first calling for a committee process that investigates Trump. "That doesn't mean we are voting on it, it means we are beginning the process to look at some of these alleged claims," Tlaib said.   Democrats have launched multiple probes into Trump's White House and personal businesses. Those investigations, led by Schiff and other House committee chairmen, are intended to keep the focus on Trump's business dealings and relationship with Russia, no matter what comes from the investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller.   Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., a member of the House Judiciary Committee and a leader of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, said Pelosi's comments are "probably a reaction to everybody wanting to go to the end of an investigation when we haven't started." Pelosi's approach could also provide cover to some of her members, including freshmen who were elected in November from "red-to-blue" districts where impeachment is politically fraught. California Rep. Katie Hill, one of those freshmen, praised Pelosi's approach. "If it's going to be a political disaster for us, then we're not going to do it," she said.   House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., noted that the majority of freshman members have not been outspoken on impeachment, and that the Senate remains controlled by Republicans. "Nobody thinks there is going to be a conviction in the Senate, unless circumstances very substantially change."   Pelosi has long resisted impeachment as a drastic step that should only be broached with "great care."   She rebuffed calls when she first held the speaker's gavel, in 2007, to start impeachment proceedings against George W. Bush. Having been a member of Congress during President Bill Clinton's impeachment, she saw the way the public turned on Republicans and helped Clinton win a second term.   Last year, heading into the midterm elections, Pelosi discouraged candidates from talking up impeachment, preferring to stick to the kitchen table issues that she believes most resonate with voters. The approach paid off, as Democrats won back the House majority for the first time in eight years.   In a caucus meeting Tuesday morning, Pelosi encouraged Democrats to "keep our eye on the prize" as "we look at what this president is doing to this great country." Impeachment was not discussed, according to an aide who requested anonymity to discuss the closed meeting.   Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., a member of House leadership, said Democrats ran on an agenda of controlling health care costs, raising incomes and fighting corruption.   "We're working very hard to deliver on those things, and I think the speaker wants to make sure we stay focused on that," he said.

          On Breaking up Google - this is not your Grandma's Monopoly (PeraclesPlease)      Cache   Translate Page      

Another election and another round of liberal posturing - "how do we beat down the corporates, how do we dismantle their power?" "Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple...," exclaims Elizabeth Warren, "along with their little subsidiary acquisitions". Let's call these The Big Four.

So let's tear this down - first, are these the monopolists you're looking for? Back in the day of the Robber Barons, we had goons showing up to beat up the competition - quite a bit of heat brought down on anyone who was in competition. This kind of activity is pretty rare these days - mostly it's just that customers are flocking to the big boys, and that's just tough on the rest.

The IT age truly hit when Microsoft ended up with a practical monopoly on the desktop. Sure, Apple could scrape out 4 million laptop & desktop sales a quarter with a huge comparative margin, and techies could go for Linux or lately Chromebooks, but in terms of units at home and in the workplace, DOS-Windows machines predominated since 1982, and still do. Microsoft went on to do quite well in the Office software and database business - and people howled to break them up. But in the end, they went from a dominant consumer company to a dominant enterprise software company, with the whole industry resigning itself to the fact that the OS is boring, and is best off boring, and all the OS wars in the 70's and 80's mostly led to things not working with each other, whereas the Windows behemoth solved that problem. Until the Web came along and made everything interoperable in a different way, so the Windows monopoly became a "who cares?" We got a little flurry of excitement when Steve Jobs decided to put a knife in the heart of Flash and Adobe itself, pretending to go to a new standard that was far from market ready - and suddenly we saw what we'd avoided for 2 decades - having to choose when we really didn't care. Sure, Excel rolled over Lotus-1-2-3 and M$ killed some other fine mail & database software companies, but it was the 90's, baby - the Internet Age, and if things hadn't just worked, that would have harshed our mellow. 

And that was in the age of price gouging. Antitrust was built on the old idea that monopolists like the oil and rail barons would take over everything and then raise the price. Except the new monopolists didn't do that. Hell, Google came along with a huge competitive field of shitty search engines and somehow did it much much better, incuding mail and calendar apps, but the consumer never (apparently) had to pay. Even the advertisers that flocked to the platform didn't seem to pay that much, considering how much the traditional ad agencies or classified ads had gouged people throughout the years. Remember how much it used to cost to sell your car, deciding whether to splurge for the week or just the Sunday edition?

Amazon was a bit similar - they were just an online bookseller back when we were buying computers the same way from Gateway - packed in some cow paddies up in North Dakota or somewhere where warehouse space roamed free. Of course as Amazon shipped books, they found they could ship other odds and ends like CDs and electronics and then household appliances, and they unfairly cemented their lead by... well, actually, they just sold stuff cheap and didn't have any stores, and their product search was pretty good, as was their reviews and the delivery... in short, they just crushed, helped of course by the lack of internet taxation - a 10% added margin can easily clench a sale over traditional stores. Sure we liked hanging out at Borders, but if we were going to binge on 5-10 books, online started making a lot more sense - especially when electronic versions became available. Yeah, I bought from Barnes & Noble a few times, and some other odds-and-ends sellers, but as with most consumer comfort, we end up going back to one familiar place.

[along the way, Amazon developed a whole bunch of cloud technology, AWS, to run all its services with - this of course could pretty easily be split off from the e-retail business - and no one would really care one way or the other]

Apple - lessee, yeah, they were bastards with Real Media and Adobe and put the hurt to dinosaur music labels and phone companies. But they also made online music work with the iPod and iTunes when everyone'd been yacking about it for a decade. When Apple introduced the iPhone, they overcharged for it - and people still bought them over the low and high-end Nokias and Blackberries. Google cleverly introduced their Android phones - but still more *elite* people wanted iPhones, and Apple naturally raised the price, while the rest could go buy cheaper Korean or Chinese Androids (Motorola went bankrupt during this transition, as did Nokia & Blackberry and a host of others). Apple made the App Store totally brainless to use, even to buy stuff. No "what version do I need?" - it figured it out and downloaded and installed the right one.

Facebook - uh, yeah, overall sux compares to what MySpace used to be. But for the non-musically/side-development inclined, I suppose, it was better with likes and little tweaks, but MySpace's CEO notes Facebook got people using their real names and they no longer minded (which meant bonanza time for marketers). They improved community and it too off. But with Zuckerberg's behavior in front of Congress and especially UK MPs, it's hard to feel any sympathy for their smug amoral attitude.

But let's say we break up Facebook. Within 2, max 3 years there'd be another trendy monopoly player that everyone flocks to because everyone's on it. (Younger kids have abandoned Facebook a great deal, thus the need to buy Instagram et al). If we break up Amazon, another player will implement 1-stop shopping that satisfies us, and we'll have a new different monopoly. Break up Apple - uh, like what? their tablet sales fell drastically after an initial goldrush, they discontinued their iPods cause they're just crippled iPhones now, they no longer really have desktops and their laptops sell the same 4 million per quarter as always.

Perhaps with Google we could split off the Android business from search, but Android on its own makes like 0 money, so Android development would grind to a relative halt (similar to Larry Ellison of Oracle buying Java just to keep someone else from having it, and so all interesting development has stopped).

Would any of this serve the customers, the consumers out there? The rapid rise of mobile use is based on being able to find anyone and anything quickly, to have over-the-air upgrades that don't need a techie to handle, being able to share data like photos and videos as a 5-year-old to 95-year-old. Remember when grandmothers used to have to ask for help with their PC's to use Hotmail or connect to the internet? Less and less does that happen. I haven't looked at "Senior Phones" in a decade, about when I was looking at some Senior video conferencing on tablet, but Skype and WhatsApp and Zoom pretty much covered that market for consumer and businesses. (okay, Microsoft bought Skype and merged it with its old clunky corporate package, so it's slightly worse, slightly better as tied to the Microsoft cloud - but still largely free or dirt cheap compared to what we recall of Telco charges).

We had the chance to break up some of our too-big-to-fail banks in 2009, and did a crappy job of it - but those were old school oligopolies and used market position to sell poison assets, robosign people's mortgage foreclosures, overcharge kids for credit cards, and other obscene practices. What'd we do? we gave traders bonuses, hand held investors with 100 cents on the dollar, bailed them out and let them merge into even bigger entities. Well, that went so well, let's try breaking up tech companies that politicians understand so poorly.

Even with advertising - Google & Facebook monopolize 60% of advertising, with Amazon working on breaking in. But one reason that advertising is so high is that advertisers want a single efficient spend, a single platform (or 2 at most). To build a mobile app you used to have to build 10 different versions at least ot effectively cover available phones. Now you build 2 - Android & Apple iOS, and just put it in their stores. Same pretty much for advertising - sure you can put up billboards or even pass out flyers, but it's totally simple to do Google & Facebook ads and check their analytics, and you know pretty much all the world is there if you design your pitch, your ad words right. So while people who want to enter the market complain, the ones using are mostly happy. What that means for consumers is evolving, since the system was built on "free lunch" and we're discovering (if we didn't know already) that "if you're not paying for the product, the product is you".

Does Elizabeth Warren and DC in general understand any of this? Do they see that people will freely gravitate towards a NetFlix without excessive pressure? We can see the damage that misuse of data creates, other types of abuses of worker pay, et al - but these aren't quite the focus of what a traditional split up would look like for a traditional monopoly. But as the bean counters from DC didn't help Detroit out much by taking over management (instead their only real successes were continuing say producton in China that was going well, while electric cars are still a bridge mostly too far), let's not expect Washington to understand well the retail or technology fields and what "platform-based" development means to the consumer and suppliers.

WalMart at one point was responsible for 13% of America's imports, but for the last decade or more has been trying to fight off Amazon's steady encroachment - including trying to compete with advertising, as well as go online, while Amazon has successfully taken the lead in apparel and opened bricks-and-mortars shops. Nokia had 50% of the global market share in 2007, and within 5 years was dead - despite a Microsoft buyout.

But would I rather be stuck with WalMart clothes and a Nokia flip phone?

It's a complicated developing world out there, and thanks to 2016 we're much more aware of the Big Brother side of corporations owning our data and other practices - but we're still a long way off from understanding the technical, legal and societal remedies. The Democrats always held Silicon Valley at arm's length, appreciating their support and often liberal values, but uncomfortable with their vast money-making technical enterprises and the venture capitalists that rose up around this.

So yeah, I'm uncomfortable with cries to just break up the Big Four and more - we've been down these roads before, and many of them look like the past. Develop a real goal, one that combines the challenges of Universal Basic Income and enough tax income for new initiatives like health care and better retirement and day care, one that identifies overstep in corporate behavior but tries to preserve consumer/B2B convenience and savings, one that's focused towards ensuring next-gen innovation rather than trying to recover some happier time that's already left last gen's Pandora Box. You can't have your Golden Goose and eat it too. It takes a platform to lay those eggs. We just need to make sure they're not Godzilla's instead.

          Flint update: The water may be cleaner, but the situation remains murky      Cache   Translate Page      

The good news is that the most recent tests of its water system show that Flint, Michigan’s water has less than half the level of lead contamination that would trigger state and federal action. However, between dozens of court cases, ongoing work to find and replace lead-contaminated pipes, and hundreds if not thousands of people still scared to trust the water coming from their taps, fallout from the Flint water crisis is far from over.

On the court action front, newly elected Attorney General Dana Nessel announced several major changes on Feb. 21 to the way both the civil and criminal cases will be handled. During the press event, Nessel said that new Solicitor General Fadwa Hammoud will take the lead on the criminal cases alongside Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy, who is famous for successfully prosecuting former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, among other cases. Todd Flood, an outside counsel who was originally appointed by former Attorney General Bill Schuette, will remain on the team.

Nessel further announced that she will take the lead on the 79 civil cases that have been filed against the state on grounds ranging from personal injury and property damage to alleged violations of the federal Clean Drinking Water Act. Nessel, a Democrat, also reversed course by announcing that she is in talks to settle many of those suits.

According to a Gongwer News Service report on the press conference, the attorney general did not announce whether or not her office plans to continue to pursue criminal charges against former Health and Human Services director Nick Lyon and former chief medical executive Dr. Eden Wells. The AG’s office has so far also refused to state whether charges may be brought against higher-ranking officials in the Snyder administration, including former Gov. Rick Snyder himself.

Nessel’s spokesperson Dan Olsen told Daily Kos that Prosecutor Worthy was added to the Flint criminal case team because she “has a depth and breadth of knowledge, and experience will be a valuable asset to the Solicitor General’s team.” While Olsen wouldn’t directly state whether or not former Gov. Snyder may eventually be charged, he added that, “anyone who our team finds criminally responsible in these cases or believes should be interviewed, will be interviewed and held accountable. No one is above the law.”

          Wings Sign Taro Hirose To A Two-Year ELC      Cache   Translate Page      
DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings today agreed to terms with left wing Taro Hirose on a two-year entry-level contract. Hirose, 22, has spent the last three seasons at Michigan State and has totaled 116 points (33-83-116) in 106 games. This season, Hirose led the nation in points (50), points-per-game (1.47), assists (35), multi-point games (15) and three-point games (9). The 5-foot-10, 160-pound winger was also the Big Ten scoring champion this season, tallying 34 points (10-24-34) in 24 conference games. Hirose became the 15th Spartan to hit the 100-career point mark since 2000, and his 50 points on the year mark the highest point-total for a Spartan since John-Michael Liles recorded 50 points in 2002-03. Hirose, who took the NCAA lead in points and assists on Jan. 4 and carried it throughout the rest of the season, had points in all but eight games for the Spartans and found the scoresheet in 34 of 43 games dating back to the 2017-18 campaign. Hirose was also named one of three finalists for the Big Ten Player of the Year Award, which will be announced next week.

The IWA was the first wrestling promotion to have a television program nationwide. Promoters Eddie Eihorn and Pedro Martinez put together a huge talent pool that would provide a national and international promotion with more stars than any other promotion had ever done. The list of stars in this first of many to come DVD series is like a who's who of the 1970's wrestling superstars. The IWA spared no expense to give the fans only the best. Jack Reynolds was a well noted and household name for his coverage of professional wrestling. Tex McKenzie not only wrestled, but also filled in as the color analyst. Ring announcing was handled by Rick Martin, who in real life was son of promoter, Pedro Martinez, his given name was Ronnie Martinez. They all provided professional insight and knowledge of the king of sports, professional wrestling. Not that Big Time Wrestling from Detroit had to take any back seats.

Featured here are a few of the Big Time Wrestling moments with the wisdom of Veteran mic man Chuck Allen and his partner Terry Sullivan filling us in on the action and shows coming up and the latest news.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here's the top 50:

29. Chihuahua, Mexico, had 37.50 homicides per 100,000 residents.

In 2018, Chihuahua had a population of 938,713 people and 352 homicides.

The table below (looks better using Chrome and Safari--working on fixing that) shows the 43 House districts flipped by Democrats in the 2018 midterms along with the candidate who won and their campaign position on impeaching President Trump. It should go without saying that a single quote from one or two links does not make a political position. (Some of them are virtually silent on the matter, which, of course, is telling.) However, with each of the candidates below, the links and the quotes provided are indicative of the candidates overall position on impeachment of President Trump.

          Student held after rap video appears to threaten shooting      Cache   Translate Page      

MARYSVILLE, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say a Michigan high school student has been arrested after allegedly making a rap video that appeared to threaten a school shooting.

Police say the student at Marysville High School, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) northeast of Detroit, was being held at a juvenile detention center ahead of a hearing Wednesday in St. Clair County.

The Marysville Public Schools district says staff became aware of the video Tuesday afternoon and notified police. The student, who wasn't at school that day, is facing a domestic terrorism charge. The district says the student isn't being allowed to return to school.

Superintendent Shawn Wightman says in a statement that "our highest priority during a serious incident or crisis in the district is the safety and well-being of our students, staff and visitors."

It is an American story of a family operating in two worlds - the urban inner city education system where the mother works & the affluent private school in which her son attends. The story is set where life and well-meaning choices really exist. Rarely do we see this picture of the black family of today - the love, strength and hope behind the statistic we think we know well."

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

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

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

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

          Comment by "anarchyst" on MORE Race Denialism the Poor Old NYT? They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?, by John Derbyshire      Cache   Translate Page      
Blacks WERE a problem in 1970s and beyond Detroit. I was able to keep up my property with no difficulty, painting the house (outside) on a regular basis, mowing the lawn and keeping the shrubbery trimmed-normal maintenance for any homeowner. Contrast my maintenance efforts and results with my black "neighbors" who did not keep up their property. You see, in the 1970s HUD had "special programs" to move blacks into single-family housing, without requiring these blacks to have any "skin in the game". Of course, being white, I did not qualify for any of these programs. The liberal "urban studies" folks at Wayne State University always made excuses for blacks and their inability and lack of "upkeep" (normal everyday maintenance) on their homes. Their main excuse was that "the homes were old"... On almost every block, whites (mostly elderly Polish) who could not afford to move STILL kept up their homes--freshly cut grass, well-maintained exteriors, etc. despite their homes being just as "old" as those owned by blacks. No matter where you went in Detroit, one could always tell where whites lived. Neatly manicured lawns and well-kept-up houses were the norm. I finally left Detroit after a number of burglaries and little or no police response. The police KNEW who the criminals were but did nothing about it. You see, blacks were "oppressed" and were "untouchable". Another situation was the "code enforcement" harassment that us whites endured. We always used the city-supplied trash containers (one for every two residences). Our black "neighbors" were too lazy to put their trash in the containers, strewing their trash throughout the alleys. Guess who got repeatedly ticketed for "improperly disposed of trash"? It wasn't the blacks who improperly disposed of their trash--it was us whites. It was as if they (the black-run city government) wanted us to move... No, the old liberal excuses that poverty was instrumental in the destruction of Detroit is totally false. All one has to do was ask the party (liquor) store owners why they put up with the likes of blacks. The Detroit "ghetto" was (and is still) quite a "gold mine" for liquor, lottery tickets and junk food. I grew up in Detroit and personally witnessed the marginalization of whites along with the destruction by blacks. It's CULTURE, not "poverty".

The IWA was the first wrestling promotion to have a television program nationwide. Promoters Eddie Eihorn and Pedro Martinez put together a huge talent pool that would provide a national and international promotion with more stars than any other promotion had ever done. The list of stars in this first of many to come DVD series is like a who's who of the 1970's wrestling superstars. The IWA spared no expense to give the fans only the best. Jack Reynolds was a well noted and household name for his coverage of professional wrestling. Tex McKenzie not only wrestled, but also filled in as the color analyst. Ring announcing was handled by Rick Martin, who in real life was son of promoter, Pedro Martinez, his given name was Ronnie Martinez. They all provided professional insight and knowledge of the king of sports, professional wrestling. Not that Big Time Wrestling from Detroit had to take any back seats.

Volkswagen, yurtdışındaki yeni fabrika yatırımı için görüşmelerini hızlandırdı. En güçlü adaylardan biri olarak görülen Türkiye'nin ise ülkede yaşanan ekonomik gelişmelerden dolayı şansını kaybettiği iddia ediliyor.

Alman otomotiv firması Volkswagen (VW), bir süredir gündemde olan yurtdışındaki yeni fabrika yatırımı için görüşmelerini hızlandırdı. Son 1.5 ay içerisinde Türkiye'nin de aralarında bulunduğu aday ülkelere ziyaretlerde bulunarak, ilgili bakanlıklarla görüşen VW yetkililerinin, aday ülke sayısını dörde düşürdüğü belirtiliyor.

Daha önce belirtilenin aksine nihai kararın 2019'un kasım ayında değil, bu yılın ilk yarısında açıklanacağı iddia ediliyor. Öte yandan yakın bir zamana kadar en güçlü adaylardan biri olarak görülen Türkiye'nin, ülkede yaşanan ekonomik gelişmelerden dolayı "şansını kaybettiği" de iddialar arasında.

TÜRKİYE'NİN 'EN GÜÇLÜ ADAY' OLDUĞU SÖYLENİYORDU

Dünya'dan Aysel Yücel'in haberine göre, elektrikli otomobiller konusunda atağa geçen VW'nin, mevcut fabrikalarında elektrikli modellere yer açmak için Ford'la işbirliği hazırlığında olduğu ve ticari araç modeli Transporter'ı Almanya yerine Türkiye'de Ford Otosan'ın Gölcük Fabrikası'nda üreteceği konuşuluyordu. Bu açıklama ocak ayında yapılan Detroit Auto Show'da resmi olarak da açıklandı.

VW'nin, bünyesindeki Skoda ve Seat markaları için yurtdışında yeni bir fabrika yatırımı yapacağı ve bu yatırım için Türkiye'nin en güçlü adaylardan biri olduğu söyleniyordu. Türkiye dışında Bulgaristan, Sırbistan, Romanya ve Makedonya da aday ülkeler arasındaydı.

'OTOMOTİVDEKİ DARALMA SEBEBİYLE VAZGEÇİLDİ'

Ancak Volkswagen'e yakın kaynaklar, Alman otomotiv devinin son birkaç haftadır aday ülkelerle görüşmeleri hızlandırdığını söyledi.

Ocak sonunda Türkiye'de bakanlık yetkilileri ile bir araya gelen VW yöneticileri, Şubat ayında ise Bulgar bakanlarla bir araya gelerek yatırım planı için görüşmeler yaptı. Türkiye'de yapılan görüşme basına yansımızken, Bulgaristan'da yapılan toplantı, hem Bulgar hem de Alman basınında yer aldı.

Bu haberlerde Bulgaristan ile görüşmelerin oldukça iyi geçtiğine yer verilirken, yakın bir zamana kadar güçlü bir aday olan Türkiye'nin ise otomotiv sektöründe yaşanan daralma nedeniyle şansını kaybettiği iddia edildi. Sırp medya kuruluşu Vecernje Novosti da bu ayın başında konuyu gündemine taşıyarak, VW Group'un Skoda ve Seat markalarının üretimi için Sırbistan'ı seçtiğini iddia etti. Bulgar, Alman ve Sırp basının ardından bugün ise Avrupa'nın önde gelen otomotiv yayınlarından Automotive News Europe, konuyu gündeme taşıdı.

5 BİN KİŞİ İSTİHDAM EDİLECEK

Automotive News Europe'da yer alan habere göre; yeni Skoda fabrikası için aday ülke sayısı daraltıldı. Skoda CEO'su Bernhard Maier'in aday ülke sayısının dörte düşürüldüğünü ifade ettiği ancak bu ülkelerin hangileri olduğunu açıklamadığı belirtiliyor.

Haberde, Skoda'nın yeni fabrika yatırımı için seçim yapmaya çok yakın olduğu ve Sırbistan'ın favori ülke olarak öne çıktığı belirtiliyor. Automotive News ayrıca farklı haber kaynaklarına dayandırarak Türkiye'nin tercih edilen bir ülkeyken, iç pazarda yaşanan daralma nedeniyle favori olmaktan çıkarıldığını yazdı. Haberde Türkiye'de otomobil ve hafif ticari araç pazarının yüzde 3 daraldığı, buna bağlı olarak üretimin de yüzde 9 azaldığı hatırlatıldı.

Volkswagen, yeni fabrika için yaklaşık 1.4 milyar avroluk yatırım yapacak. 2022'de faaliyete geçmesi planlanan fabrikada, yaklaşık 5 bin kişinin istihdam edileceği tahmin ediliyor.

There’s the Canadian-born captain determined to end a decade-long quest for the Stanley Cup. The Norris Trophy-winning defenseman from Sweden who can control a game. The dynamic Russian forward making magic every night. Yes, this Lightning team looks an awful lot like the mid-1990s Red Wings juggernaut that Devellano helped build as the former general manager.

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press, The growth of their young players give the Detroit Red Wings hope for the 2020 playoffs. That’s the longer-term outlook. The shorter term is that Thursday’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning offers a chance to play competitively against the best team in the NHL, and then the remaining 11 games in the season are equally a chance to prove something. The Wings were mathematically eliminated from the 2019 playoffs Tuesday, and while that had been coming for weeks — months, really — the team needs to adhere to working hard and showing effort. “It just goes to show you where this organization is headed,” veteran defenseman Niklas Kronwall said. “We need to find a way to make sure it is heading in the right direction. If everything is spiraling the wrong way, at the end of the day you’re kind of OK with things going on. That’s not acceptable for this organization. “We have to find a way to be better on a daily basis.” continued Below, watch Bernier, Abdelkader, Kronwall and Blashill after the game.

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




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




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

          Cranbrook Academy of Art tour      Cache   Translate Page      
Cranbrook Academy was the brainchild of philanthropist (and newspaper man) George Booth. Sited on his property in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, in the suburbs of Detroit the 319 acre lot has been filled over the years with an art academy, a boys school, a girls school, art laboratories, a world class science and history museum, as well as an art museum.
Booth brought on renowned Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen to help him not only develop the campus architecturally but the mission of the multi-faceted academy with a seemingly endless budget. See my previous tour of Saarinen's house on campus http://aboutthemaximalists.blogspot.com /2016/05/saarinen-house-at-cranbrook-academy.html#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000">HERE.
Sculptures by Carl Milles dot the lush gardens and many water features. Milles had moved from Sweden in 1931 to be sculptor-in-residence at Cranbrook and remained until returning to Sweden in 1951.
The campus came at an intriguing time in architectural history. It started as rather arts and crafts in the 1920s, played with Art Deco in the 30s, and the later buildings from the 40s and 50s are a precursor of the International movement.
Artists are still in residence in the Saarinen properties.
Fragments of antique sculpture are embedded into the brickwork on the older buildings.
The different areas of the campus each have defined portals or gateways like this arch into the boys and girls schools (a middle school run by Episcopal diocese).  The inscription wisely reads "A life without beauty is only half lived".
No 2 details are alike.  Have you seen such interesting Ionic capitals before; the art-deco influence at work.
Notice that each bracketed capital is completely different!
I loved this cloistered garden off the infirmary.
The ironwork found throughout the campus on multiple gates and fences are incredible.
While there are many disparate styles and ages to the buildings they all work together.
Around each corner is a surprise: a sculpture or fountain.
The Boys and Girl's campus have this lovely stone pergola.  Imagine it with roses or wisteria!
As you can see in my snapshots we had unusual weather ranging between hail, flurries, and sunshine.
The tower seen above was really intriguing and could be seen throughout the campus but I don't know what purpose it served.
The building on the right which looks like a chapel had these intriguing paneled stone entries.
Another beautiful sculpture and water feature.
Many of the buildings are connected with covered walkways. This one was intriguing with little domes inserted into the poured concrete surface.
More amazing ironwork.  Everything was done on site by artisans living on campus.
These doors led to what appeared to be a chapel but is actually the dining hall. Check out those lamp posts!
Place of worship of food.
This shot above sort of connects all of the previous pictures of the kid's campus area so you can get a sense of how they relate to one another.
Another 'entrance' from what was originally intended to be the public entrance (but was never used) is this lovely telescoping arched breezeway which leads to the arts academy.
The telescoping of the breezeway makes it look much deeper than it actually is by forcing the perspective. The brickwork is really lovely, a sort of herringbone ceiling pattern.
And like I said the details are everywhere.  A pair of centaurs led down to somewhat forgotten water garden.
These were intended to be the main gates at the public entrance leading to the museums but proved too difficult to monitor people coming and going off campus.
This 2nd century roman capital lies in a courtyard where Ray and Charles Eames had their workshop designing much of their famous furniture we all enjoy today.
The art museum was hosting a graduate exhibit with some really interesting projects. I was all eyes for the architecture however and loved these travertine stairs -notice the integrated handrail detail.
I did love this student project.  The tent was painted with scenes of the forest and a speaker played sounds of crickets.
Another project by an architecture student was an outdoor pavilion with intriguing plays of light and color through a skylight playing on sheer curtains.
Another great detail in the basement of the art museum was this curved metal barn door; not from Saarinen I don't believe but a modern addition.
Antique stained glass in the lobby had wonderful views of the garden.
The site is constantly changing.  It's a living, breathing arts campus and not stuck in time.  Buildings have modern but sympathetic additions and modern sculpture dots the landscape along with the original artwork.
This addition behind the museum was particularly successful I thought in being of today but melding nicely with the old.
And not to fear, the modern buildings also have thoughtful details like this rainchain instead of a downspout.  Notice the lovely patinated copper gutter.
If you're ever in the Detroit area I highly recommend a visit to the Cranbrook  Academy of Art, you won't regret it!
          Disability Plan Administrator Considered All Evidence Before Denying Claim      Cache   Translate Page      
DETROIT - A disability plan administrator did not act arbitrarily or capriciously in denying a claim for long-term disability (LTD) benefits because the plan administrator reviewed all of the medical evidence before reasonably concluding that the claimant was not totally or permanently disabled, the Michigan Court of Appeals said Feb. 21 (Amy Clements v. University of Michigan Regents, No. 341114, Mich. App., 2019 Mich. App. LEXIS 323).
          Saarinen House at Cranbrook Academy      Cache   Translate Page      
Last weekend I had the pleasure of visting Cranbrook Academy outside of Detroit. This renowned art school was partially the brain child of architect Eliel Saarinen, president of the school from 1930 until 1950.
Design runs in the family: the architect's wife was artist and weaver Loja Saarinen (who also taught at the academy) and their son would become well known industrial designer Eero Saarinen ( of the ubiquitous tables and chairs). 
It was rather a gloomy day unfortunately but the snapshots capture the circa 1930 house well (I'll blog more on the rest of Cranbrook Academy later this week).  Saarinen designed the president's house to fit within the compound and not stand out although great details abound: textured brick, leaded glass windows, etc. 
Shall we go in?
 The modern art deco interiors would have been unlike anything Detroit natives had seen in 1930 (perhaps with the exception of Frank Lloyd Wright's work).  Saarinen brought the stream-lined style straight from Finland. One enters into a small stairhall where portieres (curtains at interior doorways) provide privacy between living spaces.
As academy president Saarinen would have hosted academy functions at the house and even taught architecture classes in the studio which I'll show a bit later.  The recessed mirror, furniture, and every detail were all designed by the Saarinens and have recently been magnificently restored.  Until recently the Academy president still inhabited Saarinen house and many changes had been made over the ensuing decades. Now it operates strictly as a museum and was taken back to its 1930s appearance.
 I loved the stepped ceiling detail with Saarinen's version of the now ubiquitous recessed light. These were all made on site.
To the left of the entry is the stair up to the family quarters as well as a cloak and powder room at the end of the hall.
 The living room has been recreated from photographs with original furniture still owned by the Academy and the Saarinen family. All of the textiles were designed and woven by Luja.
 Even the light fixtures and tile fireplace surround were designed by Eliel.
 A small library nook is off the living room providing ample natural light; Notice the unique pendant fixture.
 The cocktail table with an integrated globe was one of the more popular items of furniture, although hard to capture in the lighting.
Loved this sculpture on a zebrawood (?) plinth. All of the furniture was designed by Eliel and made on site utilizing high quality veneers.
Through another set of portieres sits the dining room. The wall paneling and recessed niches had all been covered over with drywall until recently but luckily sat undisturbed and in original condition down to the niche's red paint!
The table, designed by Eliel naturally, expands to seat 14.  I loved the light fixtures a throughout the house which provide great ambient/indirect lighting.
While the kitchen has been long gone enough of the butler's pantry survived to be recreated down to the original refrigerator on the left! Notice the small pass through into the kitchen above the metal countertop.
Through portieres on another wall of the living room lies the studio where the Saarinens would meet students for classes. The first floor was a busy, working space much like the White House or any university President's house -not a private home!
 The large and bright space would have been filled with drafting tables and such by day. They could all be pushed aside, the drawings stored in built-in cupboards, and the room quickly prepared for large events and parties.
 A seating nook at the far end, closest to the living room, provides a more intimate seating area.
 The students had a direct door into the studio from the architecture classroom building.
 For parties this piano designed by Saarinen would provide endless fun.
 As would this built-in record cabinet -the speaker is behind the fabric panel below.
The seating nook features textiles and rugs designed and woven by Loja. The artwork on the walls comes from numerous past presidents of the Academy and are not original to the time of the Saarinens.
 The small green bust in the window beyond is of Eliel.
 Up the staircase seen earlier in the post is the private family quarters. This seating nook was where the family could relax privately and had breakfast daily (toast and coffee only). 3 bedrooms in addition to the master bedroom provided quarters for 2 guests as well as their son Eero.
 The art deco motifs painted on the doors were recreated from photographs.
The spacious master bedroom features another seating area as well as one of Eliel's most well known furniture designs -the tea height table with ample storage.
 Twin beds are decorated with 30s era ruffled linens.
It surprised me that the very stream-lined Saarinen's (Loja in particular) would have ruffled curtains and bed linens which were so popular at the time period.  The lamps and mirror on the dressing table in the window were designed by Eliel.
The window is flanked by built-in storage cabinets which feature pull out drawers broken into little cubbies. All of the dorm rooms on campus feature similar cubbies in drawers which students RAVE about years later as they provide for very organized storage; A cubby for each pair of socks, etc.
The original master bath is still in place! Given how small bathrooms of the time period generally were I was surprised to see such a large space.  The room is as big as the bedroom and features separate his and her vanities, a separate water closet for the toilet, separate shower (seen above), and a large soaking tub in the center of the room.
The ceiling again features a telescoping design with Eliel's version of recessed lighting. The house is an art-deco gem; one expects Fred Astaire to come dancing into the room at any minute!
Tours are given daily but limited in size. If you ever find yourself in the Detroit area I would highly recommend a tour of this Masterpiece!  See more on the website HERE.

Toyota ya habla de la evolución del Supra: versión de acceso, una más deportiva o un targa, en el horizonte#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

A principios de año, en el Salón de Detroit, el gigante japonés Toyota desveló su nuevo deportivo, el Toyota GR Supra, y parece que la compañía ya está pensando en futuras versiones, tal y como ha declarado el ingeniero jefe del proyecto Supra, Tetsuya Tada, a la revista británica Top Gear.

Según Tada, el Supra necesita seguir evolucionando cada año, intención de la que se desprende que ya están trabajando en posibles versiones adicionales, aunque hay muchas opciones. Desde una versión básica de cuatro cilindros (como la ofrecida en Japón) o un GRMN, hasta un descapotable.

Si bien el ingeniero no ha aportado demasiados detalles, si ha dejado caer la posibilidad de que la versión de acceso se materialice en Europa. Sería lógico pensar que monte el motor 2.0 litros de cuatro cilindros de origen BMW, que en el BMW Z4 sDrive30i ofrece 258 CV y 400 Nm. Además, esta variante podría también pesar unos 100 kilogramos menos que el Supra de seis cilindros.

Toyota Gr Supra
Toyota Gr Supra

Muchas posibles reinterpretaciones para el Supra

Una variante más prestacional o deportiva también es una posibilidad, con mayor potencia para el 3.0 litros biturbo de seis cilindros (340 CV y 500 Nm en el GR Supra normal) y una puesta a punto específica para la suspensión. Tada ha sugerido que esta versión podría seguir los pasos de los productos GRMN, con elementos aerodinámicos más agresivos o fibra de carbono. Llantas más ligeras, asientos de carbono o frenos también de carbono podrían ser parte de la ecuación.

Además, Tada también ha comentado a Top Gear que el interior del GR Supra podría ser ligeramente modificado para no ser tan similar al del Z4 (no hay más que ver el selector del cambio, por ejemplo), ya que ambos modelos son básicamente el mismo coche y se fabrican los dos en las instalaciones de Steyr en Graz, Austria.

Por último, que el GR Supra pueda montar una caja de cambios manual (y no únicamente la automática) también es una de las opciones que hay sobre la mesa , así como una futura versión descapotable. "Creo que hay más probabilidad de un Targa que cualquier otro tipo de descapotable", afirma Tada. "Un techo eléctrico sería más pesado y afectaría al comportamiento. Y el comportamiento lo es todo", concluye.

Richard Wershe Jr. — the man better known as "White Boy Rick," whose story was dramatized as an eponymous film last year starring Matthew McConaughey — could be released from prison a year and a half early.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is reportedly considering granting clemency to Wershe, now 49, for his work helping the government as a teenaged FBI drug informant in Detroit in the 1980s. At 14, the youngest FBI informant ever, Wershe helped bring down a cocaine trafficking ring.…

Studio: Taylor Marketing & All-Star Wrestling
The IWA was the first wrestling promotion to have a television program nationwide. Promoters Eddie Eihorn and Pedro Martinez put together a huge talent pool that would provide a national and international promotion with more stars than any other promotion had ever done. The list of stars in this first of many to come DVD series is like a who's who of the 1970's wrestling superstars. The IWA spared no expense to give the fans only the best. Jack Reynolds was a well noted and household name for his coverage of professional wrestling. Tex McKenzie not only wrestled, but also filled in as the color analyst. Ring announcing was handled by Rick Martin, who in real life was son of promoter, Pedro Martinez, his given name was Ronnie Martinez. They all provided professional insight and knowledge of the king of sports, professional wrestling. Not that Big Time Wrestling from Detroit had to take any back seats.

Featured here are a few of the Big Time Wrestling moments with the wisdom of Veteran mic man Chuck Allen and his partner Terry Sullivan filling us in on the action and shows coming up and the latest news. But the bonus here is the Memphis match that features the silver tongue, Lance Russell. Russell was like a good friend telling you always what was on his mind. The guys on the "stick" were a huge part of thousands of Wrestling fans on Saturday morning and the golden era of the 70s.

Video #1: The Civil Rights Era Roots of Roller Skating [Atlanta, Georgia]



Great Big Story, Published on May 9, 2018

In cities like Atlanta, roller skating culture is alive and rocking. But, its roots go back decades, back to the Civil Rights era. During desegregation in the 1950s and 1960s, many roller rink owners sought to maintain racial divides by hosting theme nights, such as “Rhythm Night” and “Soul Night,” specifically targeted towards African American patrons. Soon, however, these nights evolved into a thing of their own, stripping away the organ music and leaving behind an entirely unique subculture.

In Atlanta, the skating hub was centered around Cascade, a rink attracting all the best skaters in the area. Today, Cascade continues the movement, keeping skating culture rolling on.

EXCERPTS ABOUT JAM SKATING
These excerpts are given in no particular order and are numbered for referencing purposes only.

Excerpt #1
From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jam_skating
"Jam skating (or Jamskating) is a combination of dance, gymnastics, and roller skating, performed on roller skates.[1] The origins of jam skating are disputed, but it is often traced to the Great Lakes region and Florida. The style has its roots in traditional roller disco, but has been greatly influenced by breakdancing, artistic skating, gymnastics, and modern dance.[2] Successful jam skaters are well practiced in these different forms and must have the ability to translate these movements while on skates. Jam skating first became popular in the early 1990s and is still going strong throughout the nation.... Jam Skating, like breakdancing in its early evolution, was an almost underground movement fueled by teenagers and skaters in their early 20s. Events were created to allow Jam Skaters to meet, trade moves, and, most importantly, "battle". Battling and performing remain a very important aspect of Jam Skating. This element pushes the boundaries of what is possible to perform while on skates; moreover, it ignites evolution within the skate culture.

[...]

Jam skating is neither aggressive nor speed skating. This form of freestyle skating is referred to by many different names: toe-dancing, spot-skating, shuffle skating, hexing, rexxing, trucking, shadow skating, crazy leg, boogie bouncing, and disco skating. These names strictly describe the style of skating, not the moves.

[...]

Skating equipment
Traditionally, roller disco skaters wore an artistic high-cut boot with toe stop. In the early 1980s, this transitioned into a trend of wearing low-cut speed skate boots with jam plugs in place of the toe stops. This trend continues today, as the low-cut boot allows for more agility with feet while skating.

[...]

Movies
The 2005 film Roll Bounce prominently featured jam skating, along with some well-known skaters within the jam skating community.[3]

The 2006 film ATL was centered around a skating rink in Atlanta, GA called Cascade.[4]"....

Excerpt #2
From http://www.blacdetroit.com/BLAC-Detroit/September-2017/Detroits-integral-role-in-roller-skating-culture/ "Detroit's integral role in roller skating culture"
The past, present and (hopefully) rockin’ future of Detroit’s skate scene
by CORNELIUS FORTUNE, September 2017
"As a boy growing up in Black Bottom during the early ’60s, Richard Houston enjoyed Saturday matinees at the Arcadia Ballroom on Woodward – but it was roller skating that kept him out of trouble. He laced up his skates and found an entirely new world to explore – and has never looked back.

Now, at the age of 66, Houston, known as Rockin’ Richard Houston, is a world-renowned skater. The retired postman and Air Force vet has been called “The Godfather of Skating.” Houston is part of a collective in Detroit devoted to what is called The National Skate Scene, which has people from around the world meeting up to skate after hours, usually between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. These adult skate parties serve as a haven for lovers of roller skating. Not only that, but it’s a time when the “skate family” gets together for a reunion of sorts. These parties have included vendors, entertainment, dance events and other activities – happening here both here and, on a much larger scale, in cities like Atlanta and Chicago.

Roller skating in Detroit has remained a vibrant touchstone, particularly among the black community, and the city’s contribution to this movement on skates is what Houston hopes to highlight in his memoir, The Motown Sound on Wheels, set to release later this year. He wrote it not only as a historical document and point of reflection but as a love letter to the skating world that has been his passion.

[...]

New Yorker John Perkins, an associate, decided to take [Joi] Lofton’s connection to the skate world and rink owners to another level and came up with Sk8-A-Thon, an event that invited skaters from around the world in 1996. Although Lofton and Perkins went their separate ways, Lofton decided to rebrand the event, calling it Joi’s Sk8-A-Thon.

“It’s definitely international,” she says. “We have skaters here from Canada, London, Holland, Germany, Japan – those are the five countries I know of. It’s been the largest skating event in the country. The skating goes to 5 or 6 in the morning.”

Held Labor Day weekend, Joi’s Sk8-A-Thon is a passion project for its organizer. Yet, after 22 years, planning the event hasn’t gotten easier. It takes eight months to iron out the details each year.

[...]

Detroit’s Soul Skate
Joi’s Sk8-A-Thon might be the largest skating party on the national scene, but Detroit’s own Soul Skate runs a close second. Similarly, people travel from all over the world to celebrate roller skating in an afterhours adult setting. Soul Skate, a bi-annual event (the next one takes place in 2018 during Memorial Day weekend) draws thousands to Detroit.

[...]

Expanding the community
How do thousands of skaters from around the world – including Detroit – find out about adult skate parties such as Joi’s Sk8-A-Thon, Soul Skate and others?

When skaters want to know where the national parties are, they congregate on social media. But one website serves as the main informational source: skategroove.com. Before this go-to site, there was rollerskate.net – co-developed by avid skater Kevin Williams. Williams, another native Detroiter, has been involved in the skating scene since its inception. He moved to Los Angeles for a time and eventually hosted some roller skating parties in Southern California.

“We developed a website and we advertised this party and connected with roller skaters from all over the world,” Williams says. “About 2,000 people came – they came from Sweden, Switzerland, Mexico, Canada, Japan and all over the United States. It was an awesome roller skating party. It was absolutely amazing. From that, the party kept building, Joi’s kept building.”

[...]

Skating History Tidbits
Roller skating was embraced in the post-Civil War era by the upper class, who wore tuxedos and evening gowns while skating.

It gained popularity in the early 20th century after labor laws allowed people more free time.

The Great Depression took a toll on skating, since limited resources made it difficult to maintain large rinks.

The disco era was its heyday: The songs of that time were perfect for bouncing and rolling to the beat.

Economic downturn in the ’80s hit the recreation again.

Its popularity has been lifted in recent years thanks to inline skating and the resurgence of roller derby leagues.

Excerpt #3
From https://www.hbo.com/documentaries/united-skates/about United Skates [2019 documentary about jam skating]
"For years, roller-skating rinks have been a constant for African-American communities across the U.S., serving as a meeting ground, a place to have fun and an incubator of iconic hip-hop talents like Queen Latifah and N.W.A.

As America’s last standing roller rinks are threatened with closure, a community joins forces in a racially charged environment to save the underground African-American subculture of roller skating, which has been overlooked by the mainstream for generations – yet has given rise to some of the world's greatest musical talents.

From executive producer John Legend and first-time directors Dyana Winkler and Tina Brown, the documentary United Skates highlights the dynamic world of roller skating, showcasing African-American rinks and skaters across the country as they fight to keep the culture alive and skate their hearts out...

[...]

Adult nights have become skating parties marked by incredible moves and music. Reggie, who says skating brought him “community [and] a sense of culture,” is disappointed that his local rink provides neither. In fact, none of the 14 rinks in North Carolina have an adult night. Hoping to start his own, Reggie meets with an owner receptive to the idea of bringing in new clientele.

[...]

Meanwhile, the L.A. skating community mourns the closure of Skate Depot, its last remaining rink, extending the wave of rink closings across the country in the wake of rezoning laws and increased land values in urban areas.

In L.A., during the height of gang violence in the ‘80s and ‘90s, the roller rink served as neutral ground when the Crips and Bloods had to share the World on Wheels rink. In 2013, this safe space closed, despite the community’s best efforts to keep it open. After hearing of Skate Depot’s impending closing, Phelicia and her family are feeling its loss. After driving hours to another rink, Phelicia gets into a heated argument with an employee who claims their custom wheels violate rink rules.

As local rinks shutter, annual national skating events take on even greater importance. At Independence Roll, hosted by Rich City Skate, skaters across the U.S. represent their cities’ varied skating styles. The result is an unforgettable night of joy, tempered by Rich City’s pending future."...

          And The Oscar Goes To...      Cache   Translate Page      

When the Indians acquired Leonys Martin before the trade deadline last year, it was a practical move to shore up what had been a position of uncertainty for some time. No one could have foreseen what happened next, when Martin was struck down with a virus so lethal it almost claimed his life. Before the illness though, the trade signified the Indians liked what they saw in Martin and the veteran outfielder was expected to roam center field for the next year or two until a prospect was ready to take his spot.

On the same day Martin made the short journey across Lake Erie from Detroit to his new home in Cleveland, the Indians were busy adding another center fielder, a prospect who could potentially supplant Martin in the future.

His name is Oscar Mercado and he’s currently the most exciting Tribe player of spring training.

I was quietly pleased when the Indians announced they had brought the young Colombian on board via a prospect swap with the Cardinals. The fleet-footed former shortstop-now-outfielder is renowned for his elite speed and strong defense, but has dedicated himself these past two years on improving his prowess at the plate. The results have been encouraging, as Mercado hit .285/.351/.408 for the Triple-A Redbirds prior to his trade, with 8 homers and 42 RBI, plus 31 stolen bases. Once part of of the Indians organisation, Mercado slashed .252/.342/.320 in 32 games for Columbus as he adjusted to his new team and city.

At this point Mercado was considered by many to be another cog in the Indians’ outfield wheel of problems and misfits, but behind the likes of the more established trio of Tyler Naquin, Bradley Zimmer and Greg Allen, and even new additions like Jordan Luplow and Jake Bauers.

Then spring training began and Mercado came to play.

The 24 year-old has been scorching hot at the plate in his 27 at-bats thus far, firmly putting him among the contenders for an outfield spot to start the 2019 season. In the first big league training camp with his new team, Mercado has a team-best 12 hits, including a double and a triple, and 3 home runs for 8 RBI. His slashline is an impressive .444/.444/.889. If he can sustain this momentum for another fortnight, Francona and the Indians will find it extremely difficult to resist picking him for the 25-man roster.

Indians beat reporter Mandy Bell tweeted Francona’s comments below:


Mercado appears to be stealing the show every time he’s in the lineup. Another memorable moment came on Sunday afternoon, a monster home run off Felix Hernandez during a 16-2 rout of the Mariners. I was relaxing with the game on TV, casually watching the third inning of yesterday’s game, when the crack of Mercado’s bat jolted me to attention. I saw the ball arcing deep into center field, the outfielders gazing helplessly at it, before it finally crashed high off the outfield wall for a prodigious solo homer. The right-handed hitting Mercado went 3-for-3 in the game overall, and the Indians could really benefit from a righty in a very lefty-dominated team.

Perhaps it’s too early to expect Mercado to make the leap straight from Triple-A to a starting spot on the Opening Day roster. 2018 was only his first year at the Triple-A level after all, so his experience with top-level pitchers has been limited. Also, y’know, spring training numbers have never been a great indicator for regular season performance. As much as I would love to see him start the year in the Cleveland outfield, I know deep down his development could be better served with a month or two in Columbus. The club has Mercado under control for at least the next six years, so there’s no need to rush him, especially when the AL Central is predicted to be so uncompetitive again.

Having said that, if he’s performing better than the current alternatives, shouldn’t he be given an opportunity? Would I prefer Mercado shadowing Martin in a corner outfield spot on Opening Day over the likes of Luplow and Naquin?

Absolutely.

Wherever he winds up on Opening Day, be it Cleveland or Columbus, consider the British branch of the Oscar Mercado Fan Club officially open for business. I hope the youngster continues to dazzle us with his abilities and ultimately provides the club with a meaningful contribution over the coming months and 2019 season.

          America’s doctors warn Google, Twitter, and Facebook: Anti-vaxxers are weaponizing tech platforms, prompting outbreaks that can 'debilitate and kill'      Cache   Translate Page      

Flu Vaccine

  • The American Medical Association (AMA) is worried that anti-vaxxers are weaponizing the world's biggest social media platforms, including Facebook, Google, and Twitter. 
  • Parents often use these platforms to spread misinformation about vaccine dangers that aren't real.
  • Doctors say the content is having a dangerous impact on the number of vaccinated people in America, and that could have deadly consequences.
  • "It is important that people be aware not just that these diseases still exist and can still debilitate and kill, but that vaccines are a safe, proven way to protect against them," the AMA letter states.

Doctors think too many American kids are missing vaccinations, and that fake news spreading like wildfire on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube may be largely to blame. 

On Wednesday, the American Medical Association (AMA), the largest professional group of doctors in the US, sent an open letter to the CEOs of Amazon, Facebook, Google, Pinterest, Twitter and YouTube, voicing concern that parents are taking in all kinds of fake information about childhood vaccines from inaccurate videos, posts, and links on their platforms.

"Physicians across the country are troubled by reports of anti-vaccine related messages and advertisements targeting parents searching for vaccine information on your platforms," AMA CEO James Madara wrote. "We urge you to do your part to ensure that users have access to scientifically valid information on vaccinations, so they can make informed decisions about their families’ health." 

The anti-vaxx content that's been cropping up on social media for years appears to be having a harmful effect: a recent UK study suggested that two in every five parents have been exposed to anti-vaccine content on social media, and more than one in four believe, wrongly, that a person can have "too many" vaccines.

In the US, researchers are worried about several potential "hotspots" that are ripe for a disease outbreak, including Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington; Phoenix, Arizona; Salt Lake City, Utah; Houston, Texas; and Detroit, Michigan. 

Measles, a vaccine-preventable disease that was nearly unheard of in the US as recently as the early 2000s, is cropping up in more and more rich countries where people are neglecting their shots. In 2018, measles killed 72 people in Europe, and over 225 people in the US have contracted measles so far this year. 

Some big tech companies are starting to take note. 

Last Thursday, Facebook promised to de-rank anti-vaxx pages on its site. Ethan Lindenberger, an 18-year-old who has recently taken it upon himself to start catching up on his own childhood vaccines, said his mother often used Facebook to spread false information about vaccines to her friends, and inform her beliefs that vaccines were dangerous for him.

"Her love, affection, and care as a parent was used," Lindenberger told the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions last week. 

Pinterest is taking a more conservative approach by completely blocking vaccine searches. Amazon is also taking steps to remove anti-vaxx videos and stop selling books with quack medical "cures," as NBC reported Tuesday

Doctors could also be doing more to combat the problem, as studies suggest they are some of the most trusted sources that vaccine-hesitant parents may consult to change their minds. Here's the AMA's letter in full

Dear CEOs of Leading Technology Companies, 

At a time when vaccine-preventable diseases, particularly measles, are reemerging in the United States and threatening communities and public health, physicians across the country are troubled by reports of anti-vaccine related messages and advertisements targeting parents searching for vaccine information on your platforms. As physicians, we are concerned that the proliferation of this type of health-related misinformation will undermine sound science, further decrease vaccinations, and persuade people to make medical decisions that could spark the spread of easily preventable diseases.

With public health on the line and with social media serving as a leading source of information for the American people, we urge you to do your part to ensure that users have access to scientifically valid information on vaccinations, so they can make informed decisions about their families’ health. We also urge you to make public your plans to ensure that users have access to accurate, timely, scientifically sound information on vaccines. 

We applaud companies that have already taken action but encourage you to continue evaluating the impact of these policies and take further steps to address the issue as needed.

The overwhelming scientific evidence shows that vaccines are among the most effective and safest interventions to both prevent individual illness and protect public health. When immunization rates are high, people who cannot be protected directly by the vaccines are protected because they are not exposed to the disease. This includes children too young to receive vaccinations and people with medical contraindications.

The reductions we have seen in vaccination coverage threaten to erase many years of progress as nearly eliminated and preventable diseases return, resulting in illness, disability and death. In order to protect our communities’ health, it is important that people be aware not just that these diseases still exist and can still debilitate and kill, but that vaccines are a safe, proven way to protect against them. 

As evident from the measles outbreaks currently impacting communities in several states, when people decide not to be immunized as a matter of personal preference or misinformation, they put themselves and others at risk of disease. That is why it is extremely important that people who are searching for information about vaccination have access to accurate, evidence-based information grounded in science. 

Thank you for your attention to this critical, public health matter. We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

James L. Madara, M.D.

CEO, Executive Vice President, Americal Medical Association
