          Top Astros prospect Francis Martes suspended 80 games for PEDs      Cache   Translate Page      
Houston Astros pitching prospect Francis Martes is already sidelined after undergoing Tommy John Surgery. If that’s not bad enough, the 23-year-old Martes will now be a bit lighter in the pocket book. MLB announced on Tuesday that Martes has been suspended 80 games for violating the league’s ban on performance enhancing drugs (PEDs). A top-40 prospect around the baseball world back in 2017, Martes has fallen on hard times recently. He pitched to a 5-2 record with a 5.80 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP in 32 appearances (four starts) for the Astros back in 2017. Last season saw Martes post a near 7.00 ERA in five appearances in the minors before being shut down. Needless to say, Martes will have to come back strong from both the surgery and this suspension to have a chance with Houston’s big league club moving forward.

Astros right-hander Francis Martes has been suspended 80 games after testing positive for the banned substance Clomiphene, the league announced Tuesday. The 23-year-old Martes already was going to be sidelined as he recovered from Tommy John surgery, but he’ll be docked 80 games’ pay and now be ineligible to pitch in the postseason even if he’s able to work back up to full strength. Beyond that, any possibility of him acquiring service time on the MLB 60-day injured list has now been wiped out, as he’ll come off Houston’s 40-man roster while he is on the restricted list as part of this suspension. Martes was considered one of baseball’s premier pitching prospects prior to the 2017 season, landing inside the top 40 on the pre-2017 rankings from Baseball America, MLB.com, ESPN and Baseball Prospectus. His stock has dropped since that time, however, as Martes pitched to an ERA well north of 5.00 in both Triple-A and the ,ajors in ’17 before logging a 6.75 ERA in four Triple-A starts last season.

          Astros Rookies (#244, #539, #596)      Cache   Translate Page      
Here are the 1966 Astros Rookie Stars cards. The first one is card #244 featuring Chuck Harrison and Sonny Jackson. Both photos are airbrushed nightmares, using techniques also found on the next card: a poorly-painted logo and fading cap edge, and the other photo looks like someone scribbled over the cap logo with a black sharpie. Both players would have much better cards in the 1967 set.



There were two other Astros Rookie Stars cards in the 1966 set, both in the high-numbered 7th series. I don't have these 2 cards, but for completeness I am including images of the card fronts I found on the internet.

Looks like the same guy was in charge of airbrushing this card (#539). ("Air-brushing" may be too generous a term, because it looks like this was done with a dime-store paintbrush.) Bill Heath looks a lot like fellow Astros' catcher John Bateman here. Heath would get a better card in the 1967 set, then disappear until having one last card in the 1970 set as a Cub.

Carroll Sembera also has a good-looking card in the 1967 set, then falls victim to the disaster inflicted on all the 1968 Astros cards. He also has a final card in the 1969 set as a capless Montreal Expo.


Ahh! A decent-looking rookies card (#596). After this card, Nate Colbert vanishes until resurfacing in the 1969 set as a San Diego Padre. This is Greg Sims' only baseball card.

          Milwaukee's The One For Democrats      Cache   Translate Page      
It wasn't the biggest city in the mix. Or the most diverse. Or the flashiest. But in the end, the winner is — Milwaukee! Democrats have chosen the city on Lake Michigan as the site of their nominating convention to be held in the summer of 2020. It beats out two other finalists — Houston and Miami. Each of those towns had much to entice the DNC: plenty of hotel rooms, major arenas, event space, experience with major conventions. Each also has a large Latino population — voters Democrats need as a major element of any winning coalition in the next presidential election. But Milwaukee, Wisc., while the smallest of the cities in the running, had something big going for it as well: symbolism. A chance for the Democratic National Convention to send a message that no voter will be taken for granted, that the upper Midwest is extremely important, and that the party looks to reverse Trump's very narrow, upset win in Wisconsin in the last election. In some ways it's the Democrats looking for a

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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


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

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


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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Tournament odds AAC Temple South Florida good value bets      Cache   Translate Page      

The 2019 American Athletic Conference men’s basketball tournament kicks off on Thursday with four games. Houston is easily the favorite to capture the crown in Memphis as it looks like one of the top teams in the country. The Cougars are currently rank 11th in the Top 25 AP poll and ESPN’s Joe Lunardi projects them as a 3 seed in the Big Dance. Like with all top tier teams in the nation, however, the conference tournament is often viewed as a glorified warm-up for the real deal. That opens the door for hungrier teams, who desperately need conference tournament wins to make the field of 68, to take down the big dogs.

Temple is actually a decent bet in this tournament at 10-1 given that they have a first round bye. Memphis, which has higher odds at 6-1, actually has to play on Thursday unlike the Owls – who will start up on Friday night.

The Owls need to at least win on Friday night to shore up a spot in the big tournament as Lunardi currently has them as one of the last four bye teams in the Big Dance and as an 11-seed.

In the ACC tourney, Temple will get the winner of Wichita State and ECU in the quarterfinals. The Owls won at Wichita State in overtime back on Jan. 6 and took down East Carolina on the road on Jan. 16.

Temple is also one of two teams this season to have beaten Houston as Quinton Rose pumped in 22 points in a 73-69 home victory back on Jan. 9.

Here are the AAC tournament odds.

AAC

Houston 7/5

Cincinnati 5/2

UCF: 4-1

Memphis 6-1

Temple: 10-1

Wichita State: 25-1

South Florida: 50-1

SMU: 50-1

Tulsa: 60-1

UConn: 60-1

East Carolina: 200-1

          U.S. minorities consume less but suffer more from pollution: study      Cache   Translate Page      

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. air pollution is disproportionately caused by white consumers, while African-Americans and Hispanics are burdened most by the emissions, a peer-reviewed study showed on Monday.

On average, African-Americans are exposed to about 56 percent more fine particulate matter pollution than is caused by their consumption of goods and services, said the study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Hispanics, on average, bear a burden of 63 percent excess exposure, it said.

Whites, on the other hand, experience a "pollution advantage," meaning they are exposed to 17 percent less pollution than is caused by their consumption.

"What surprised me the most was the magnitude of the discrepancy," said Jason Hill, a biosytems engineering professor at the University of Minnesota and co-author of the study. "It's surprisingly large."

The study was the first to quantify what it called "pollution inequity" and to track it over time.

Particulate matter pollution has a wide variety of sources including coal-fired power plants, agriculture, road dust and industry. Blacks and Hispanics bear a higher proportion of the pollution because of where most of them live, compared with where most white people live, said the study, which tapped census data.

The problem occurs across the country, not just in industrial areas alongside major cities like Houston and New York, it said.

The study was paid for in part by a five-year grant that included money from federal agencies including the Environmental Protection Agency and was launched when Barack Obama was president. The grant has continued to be funded by the administration of President Donald Trump.

Both racial minorities and whites have benefited from clean air regulations, the study found, with fine particulate pollution falling about 50 percent on average between 2003 and 2015.

But the pollution inequity remains stubborn, it said. Public-health advocates and environmentalists say the Trump administration's push to unravel regulations on power plants, industry and vehicles while pursuing increased drilling and mining will make air pollution worse.

The study found that fine particulate pollution from domestic sources caused about 102,000 premature U.S. deaths a year from heart attacks, strokes, lung cancer and other diseases.

Julian Marshall, an engineering professor at the University of Washington and co-author of the study, said its approach could be extended to other pollutants.

"When it comes to determining who causes air pollution, and who breathes that pollution, this research is just the beginning."

          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.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. –The Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) has released its men’s and women’s bracket for the 2019 Toyota SWAC Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments.2019 swac bkb trn logo

The action is set to begin at campus sites with the quarterfinal rounds held on March 12, with the higher seed hosting the lower seed. The semifinals and finals occur March 15-16 in Bill Harris Arena. All semifinal contests will be available live on ESPN3.

The women’s championship game will also be shown live on ESPN3 with a tip-off time of 1:30 p.m. CST and the men’s championship will be broadcast live on ESPNU at 5 p.m. CST.

2019 Toyota SWAC Tournament Women’s Bracket
For the second-straight year, the Southern Jaguars (14-4 SWAC) enter the tournament as the top seed, clinching the regular season title outright on Saturday. They will face No. 8 seed Mississippi Valley State, who punched its ticket to the tournament with an 82-63 win over UAPB. Southern swept the regular season meetings between the teams.

Prairie View A&M (13-5 SWAC) earned the No. 2 seed and will take on No. 7 seed Alabama A&M. The Lady Panthers won both of the regular-season matchups over the Lady Bulldogs.

Perhaps the league’s hottest team at this point in the season, Jackson State (12-6 SWAC) comes in as the No. 3 seed and will take on No. 6 seed Alabama State (10-8). JSU defeated Alabama State 78-58 on March 9 to clinch home-court advantage in the quarterfinals. Jackson State has won 11 of its past 12 games, but Alabama State split the season series with the Lady Tigers, as both sides won on their respective home floors.

Defending tournament champion Grambling State (10-8) earned the No. 4 seed with a win over Alabama A&M and draws No. 5 seed Texas Southern (11-7 SWAC). Grambling State and Texas Southern are no strangers to each other this time of year, as TSU defeated Grambling State to win the 2017 SWAC Tournament Championship, and GSU avenged that loss during the semifinals of the 2018 tournament on its way to the title.

2019 Toyota SWAC Tournament Men’s Bracket
After winning their first SWAC regular season title since 2003, the Prairie View A&M Panthers head into the tournament as the No. 1 seed following a 17-1 record in conference play. PVAMU will host eighth-seeded Alcorn State (6-12). The Panthers swept the regular-season series between the teams, including a 98-64 win over the Braves this past Saturday.

Saturday rematches will be a theme of the opening round on the men’s side, as No. 2 seed Texas Southern (14-4 SWAC) will host No. 7 seed Southern (6-12 SWAC), who moved to its current seeding thanks to an 87-77 victory over the defending tournament champions in the teams’ regular-season finale.

Jackson State (10-8 SWAC) earned the No. 3 seed and will take on No. 6 seed Alabama State (9-9). JSU defeated Alabama State 82-70 on Saturday to clinch the third seed.

Rounding out the opening round on the men’s side will be No. 4 seed Grambling State (10-8) taking on No. 5 seed Arkansas-Pine Bluff (10-8 SWAC). Grambling State, the 2018 SWAC regular season champion, swept the season series against last year’s tournament runner-up.

          More than 2,000 people in ICE custody quarantined      Cache   Translate Page      
More than 2,000 people in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody are being quarantined amid an outbreak of mumps and other diseases. The numbers of immigrants in custody with a contagious diseases has spiked in the past year. For the previous two years, the agency has not encountered a single case of mumps among its detainees. "As of March 7, 2019, there was a total of 2,287 detainees cohorted for exposure to a detainee with a contagious condition," said ICE spokesperson Brendan Raedy in a statement. In the past 12 months, there have been health investigations at 51 ICE detention facilities for mumps, chickenpox and influenza, according to Raedy. There have been 236 reported cases of mumps, with another 16 suspected cases during this time period. Last year, there were 423 people documented with influenza and 461 people with chickenpox in ICE custody, according to the agency. But from January 2016 to February 2018, there were zero notifications of mumps, and only 73 of chickenpox and 34 of influenza. Last week, Texas officials announced that nearly 200 people at immigration detention facilities across the state had contracted mumps since October. The 186 patients ranged from 13 to 66 years old, the Texas Department of State Health Services said Tuesday. "They should be in isolation," said Dr. David Persse, of Houston's public health authority last week. Persse urged ICE start isolating people who show mumps symptoms and quarantine people who may have been infected. "To some degree, this is foreseeable, because you're bringing a lot of people and housing them in tight spaces for long periods," Persse said. US officials have been warning of the perils of diseases for migrants arriving in the US, increasingly in large numbers of families and children. "Migrants travel north from countries where poverty and disease are rampant, and their health can be aggravated by the physical toll of the journey. Many individuals we encounter may have never seen a doctor, received immunizations, or lived in sanitary conditions. Close quarters on trains and buses can hasten the spread of communicable diseases," said US Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan during congressional testimony last week...MORE

          Fantasy Basketball: Kemba Cracked Open a Bottle of Olde English      Cache   Translate Page      
When I used to drink back in high school, it'd be a lot of 40 ounces of Olde English 800. Too many 40's of OE. Way too many 40's of OE. I was/am a stupid, stupid man. But they were so cheap and it was nice to just have to carry around one bottle. I had repressed all those memories until I saw Kemba's line last night:
PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
40 10 7 0 1 4 6/6 14/20 6/7
In 40 minutes! And that was without Cody Zeller (knee), who helps Kemba post positive numbers when he's on the court. Anyways, the matchup last night against the Rockets was a great one, as Houston is the 6th-worst at defending the pick-and-roll, a play that Kemba is a master at running. With that said, he has been hot recently regardless, as he's been a top 25 player over the past seven games. The usage rate is above 30 and he's been jacking up 20 shots per game. Kemba does contribute across the board, even chipping in 0.4 blocks. Yo, Blake Griffin. You seeing this? It all comes down to the shooting efficiency for Kemba. During his current heater, he's converting 46% of his shots from the field. There were stretches during the season when he was sub-40%. Hopefully he continues his hot streak for the duration of the fantasy playoffs and entices you to seek out a bottle of Olde English. Here's what else I saw last night:

          Man tweets that his dad's new donut shop has no customers, response is overwhelmimg      Cache   Translate Page      

"My dad is sad cause no one is coming to his new donut shop 😭," tweeted the son of the proprietor of Billy's Donuts in Missouri City, Texas. The brilliant marketing move resulted in a sell-out of donuts and kolaches.

From Houstonia:

By Sunday afternoon his tweet was retweeted more than 150,000 times. By Monday morning? More than 260,000 times. To put that in perspective, the 30th most retweeted tweet in Twitter history (by South Korean boy band BTS) has about 630,000 retweets.

...

On Monday morning, Billy was being interviewed by other local news stations and working on a potential CNN spot, while representatives from Twitter were on hand greeting customers. Yes, Twitter. They bought out the store for the morning, meaning everyone’s order was on them. (Representatives wouldn’t comment on the record about their presence at the shop.) And while Billy played gracious host, Satharith kept busy in the back, and an aunt worked the cash register. It all seemed surreal that within 48 hours, this family-owned Cambodian donut shop in Missouri City had become something of an epicenter of social media

           Comment on Inquiries, investigations, and registries: It’s complicated by Mark Terry       Cache   Translate Page      
In regard to a national SBC database, if the SBC does this, it will be limited. By that I mean it will be limited to those convicted of abuse. The Houston Chronicle database only listed the names of persons who had been convicted or plead guilty. Why so? The newspaper posted a limited list because their attorneys insisted. I realize that victims and their advocates want to include those who are "credibly accused," but that leaves the SBC open to a plethora of lawsuits. Court cases are a matter of legal and public record, and there is no legal risk in publishing that information. The only way to discover the "credibly accused" is by carefully checking references to the third level.

          Una madre dimentica suo figlio in aeroporto. Aereo saudita costretto a tornare indietro dopo il decollo      Cache   Translate Page      

Un aereo diretto in Malesia è dovuto rientrare in Arabia Saudita da dove era decollato dopo che una passeggera si è resa conto che aveva lasciato il suo bambino al terminal. Il pilota, in viaggio verso Kuala Lumpur, ha esaudito l'insolita richiesta di tornare all'aeroporto di Gedda poco dopo il decollo quando la passeggera ha raccontato all'equipaggio di cabina di aver dimenticato il suo bambino. Lo riporta The Guardian.

Un video del pilota che chiama i controllori del traffico aereo rivela l'inusuale scambio tra lui, mentre chiede il permesso di tornare all'aeroporto di King Abdulaziz, e gli operatori.

"Che Dio sia con noi. Possiamo tornare?", chiede il pilota. Lo scenario, apparentemente accaduto per la prima volta per i controllori del traffico aereo, lascia l'operatore confuso e si sente che conferisce con altri l'azione appropriata da compiere. "Questo volo chiede di tornare", dice a un altro collega. "Un passeggero ha dimenticato il suo bambino nella sala d'aspetto". Nell'audio si sente il pilota che insiste: "Te l'ho detto, una passeggera ha lasciato il suo bambino nel terminal e si rifiuta di continuare il volo".

Dopo una breve pausa, il volo è stato autorizzato a tornare all'hub. "OK, torna", hanno detto i controllori del traffico aereo. "Questa è una cosa totalmente inusuale e nuova per noi". È raro che gli aerei si girino o si spostino a mezz'aria per motivi diversi da motivi tecnici o di salute dei passeggeri.

Nel 2013, un volo della American Airlines da Los Angeles a New York è stato deviato a Kansas City a causa di un "passeggero molto indisciplinato" che si è rifiutato di smettere di cantare "I Will Always Love You" di Whitney Houston. L'anno seguente, a New York, un aereo diretto a Seul tornò al cancello dopo che l'ereditiera coreana della compagnia aerea Cho Hyun-ah costrinse un membro dell'equipaggio a sbarcare perché era stata servita con le noci di macadamia da un pacchetto anziché da una scodella.

          Spectacular Stacey Abrams Says She May Run For President! Also Beto Might Too      Cache   Translate Page      


Stacey Abrams and Beto O'Rourke each have a very important decision to make, and that decision could change the trajectory of their lives, reform the Democratic Party, and perhaps even affect the future of this nation for generations to come. Here we are, a year out from the Democratic primary, we have a bajillion candidates running, and The Great Unpleasantness of 2016 still looms painfully and bitterly large (on social media, not in real life, okay?) in our beautiful minds. We literally have a full plate, an over abundance, a smorgasbord of candidates, really it's the makings of a Brokered Convention*, so isn't the most logical and reasonable plan to cajole Beto and Stacey Abrams into joining the fray? Of course it is.

Besides, what else do you do when you are a strong black woman who was robbed of a governorship by a feckless fumplepunt of a Secretary of State who was literally rigging the race he was running in, as the nation watched in horror? How about if you are a soulful emo white guy who galvanized Texas, only to be defeated by The Zodiac Killer in a Senate race? If you are a Democrat from a Red State who almost dick punched the GOP to death, you remind yourself that Trump didn't actually "win" either, and you prepare yourself to try to take his job. Fuck it.

*I don't mind this.


NBC:

Abrams spent some time recently at South by Southwest, and she spoke of a spreadsheet she had been keeping for years mapping out her future, and according to it, she would not be ready to run for president.

"In the spreadsheet with all the jobs I wanted to do, 2028 would be the earliest I would be ready to stand for president because I would have done the work I thought necessary to be effective at that job," Abrams said.

When people saw this interview they cried and cried and cried because it would be eight more empty years without Abrams to help lead us back from whatever fresh hell this is where the president is so mercenary, evil, stupid, and vile, it allows you to see how altruistic the fucking Kardashian sisters can be. Legit, be nice to Kim. She gets shit done.

Axios:

"My task is to make certain that a Democrat is elected not only to the White House but that we have a Democratic majority in the Senate and a Democratic majority in Congress," Abrams told South by Southwest.

I always feel so positively inspired when Abrams speaks, the clarity of perspective and forward thinking she dishes out always feels like a call to action, a directive, and lessons on how to be better and do better are ever present and uplifting.

Abrams, who has built a national following, also said she thinks President Donald Trump is "racist," "xenophobic," and "homophobic," but said Democrats should not focus too much on him.

"I think beating Donald Trump is the wrong mission. When you're focused on your enemy, then you are ignoring your allies," she said.

From Essence:

"I need women of color, particularly Black women, to understand that our achievements should not be diminished," Abrams told NYT. She added, "I'm not saying I would be the best candidate, but I'm not going to dismiss it out of hand the way others do."

That spreadsheet didn't know shit, and it is not the boss of Stacey Abrams. IT IS A SPREADSHEET. That's not even a robot. It doesn't get to tell you what to do, IT CAN'T TALK.

Let's check on Beto and see what he's been up to on his "Tour" thingy.

AP:

Former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke is making his first trip to Iowa of the 2020 campaign, visiting the state that kicks off presidential voting amid intense speculation that he'll enter the race for the White House.

O'Rourke had previously failed to answer invitations to visit Democrats in Iowa, New Hampshire and other early nominating states and hasn't yet made major staffing moves in those places.

He says he's decided on 2020 but has provided no further details except that he'll make his plans known soon.

Wow. Thanks, Your Majesty, for thinking about telling us when you'll grace us with your presence. Is he playing hard to get? Unlike many people, I never got Beto, he's emo, I'm emo, there would just be an Abraham-Mary Todd melancholia meltdown if we stood too close to each other at a party. Let's see how his "Tour" has been going, that ought to be cheerful.

AP:

"Maybe I'd been hoping for some kind of connection that day and hadn't found it," he wrote in one of those diary posts, from Ulysses, Kan. "I called Amy. Kids were in the car, she was a little distracted, we didn't connect either. Maybe you could meet people at a bar she said as we hung up."

The Beto Diaries. Again.

Okay, BETO, you and your oversharing of melancholic self searching emo crises of connectivity are making me impatient. Pretty fucking sure I'm reading that your wife was busy taking care of everything while you sat around Holden Caulfielding and being super emo. (This is my opinion.) [It is also the editrix's opinion. -- Editrix]

"Maybe you could meet people at a bar…" Fuck it. Not our business.

What is our business is the fact that if any of the women campaigning wrote the stuff Beto writes and behaved as he does, they would not be running for president for long. Harris gets slammed for eating hot sauce, Klobuchar is a meanyface bad boss lady, Warren got a self owning DNA test, and Gillibrand is a reverse Elsa from Frozen and loves open border MS-13 Caravan Murderers. What if Beto ate hot sauce while taking a DNA test, yelling at his assistant Chad, and trying to abolish ICE? Nobody would give a shit or report on it unless it was to possibly congratulate him, or hold a parade in his honor ... because he's a white man. Okay, and "Kennedyesque."

Is Beto taking advantage of his privilege? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It seems that there are some women besides us who believe that Beto needs to do better.

NYT:

Female Democratic strategists have grown increasingly frustrated as they've watched Mr. O'Rourke jump on his single-speed bike, read his emotional posts from his road trip and seen him slip into the premiere of a documentary about his Senate campaign.

Imagine, they say, if Beto were Betsy. What would the reception have been if a female candidate left her three small children home and spent several weeks traveling the country, posting stream-of-consciousness diary entries? Or if she chose to forgo a Senate race that would provide a greater opportunity for victory?

While we love all of our Dems EQUALLY, because we are UNBIASED, we are a bit concerned that perhaps one of our future presidential hopefuls may not be quite as ready for the challenge of a presidential campaign. But what the hell do we know? He might be the Bruce Wayne of politics, and this was just him being Christian Bale about life. When it comes to other hopeful, it seem to be a case of she is just too fucking awesome and should be Queen of Running America Right Now. If she wants to.

Bill Chappell and Merrit Kennedy | NPR

Updated at 1:28 p.m. ET

Federal officials have charged dozens of well-heeled parents, including actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, in what the Justice Department says was a multimillion-dollar scheme to cheat college admissions standards. The parents allegedly paid a consultant who then fabricated academic and athletic credentials and arranged bribes to help get their children into prestigious universities.

"We're talking about deception and fraud — fake test scores, fake credentials, fake photographs, bribed college officials," said Andrew Lelling, the U.S. attorney for the District of Massachusetts.

Lelling says 33 parents "paid enormous sums" to ensure their children got into schools such as Stanford and Yale, sending money to entities controlled by a man named William Rick Singer in return for falsifying records and obtaining false scores on important tests such as the SAT and ACT.

Describing how Singer worked to present his clients' children as elite athletes, Lelling said, "In many instances, Singer helped parents take staged photographs of their children engaged in particular sports. Other times, Singer and his associates used stock photos that they pulled off the Internet — sometimes Photoshopping the face of the child onto the picture of the athlete" and submitting it to desirable schools.

"Singer's clients paid him anywhere between $200,000 and $6.5 million for this service," Lelling said.

The scope of the case is massive — total of 50 people have been charged in the admissions scheme. The Justice Department said in a statement that dozens of people in multiple states have been arrested but gave no further details.

The scheme operated from 2011 through February 2019, Lelling said, adding that in most cases, parents paid Singer between $250,000 and $450,000 per student.

"These parents are a catalog of wealth and privilege," Lelling said. "They include, for example, CEOs of private and public companies, successful securities and real estate investors, two well-known actresses, a famous fashion designer and the co-chairman of a global law firm."

The parents were already able to give their children "every legitimate advantage," Lelling said, added that they "instead chose to corrupt and illegally manipulate the system for their benefit."

Other defendants in the case include university athletic coaches and college exam administrators — some of whom are accused of accepting bribes. Court documents state that the scheme targeted these schools as part of a "student-athlete recruitment scam": Yale University, the University of Southern California, Georgetown University, UCLA, Wake Forest University, Stanford University, University of San Diego and the University of Texas, Austin.

"There will not be a separate admissions system for the wealthy," Lelling said. "And there will not be a separate criminal justice system either."

The charges are part of a complex case that has been kept under seal. Documents related to the case were revealed Tuesday, as Singer pleaded guilty to a number of federal crimes from conspiracy to commit racketeering and money laundering to obstruction of justice, Lelling said.

The parents were charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

"Singer owned and operated the Edge College & Career Network LLC ('The Key') – a for-profit college counseling and preparation business – and served as the CEO of the Key Worldwide Foundation (KWF) – a non-profit corporation that he established as a purported charity," the Justice Department said in a statement.

On its website, The Key promises to "unlock the door to academic, social, personal and career success." The foundation says it "has touched the lives of hundreds of students that would never have been exposed to what higher education could do for them."

The court documents detail numerous examples of how the scheme worked. For example, Lelling said former Yale women's soccer coach Rudy Meredith took $400,000 to designate a potential student as a recruit for the team — boosting the student's admission prospects — despite knowing that the student didn't play the sport competitively.

Once the student was accepted to Yale, her relatives paid Singer approximately $1.2 million, including a $900,000 to one of KWF's charitable accounts, according to court documents.

Last April, Meredith allegedly met with the father of a second prospective student in a hotel room in Boston — a meeting that was secretly recorded by the FBI. In it, Meredith offered to designate the man's daughter as a soccer recruit in exchange for $450,000, court documents state.

Meredith resigned his long-held post in November. In a statement to NPR, a Yale representative said:

"As the indictment makes clear, the Department of Justice believes that Yale has been the victim of a crime perpetrated by its former women's soccer coach. The university has cooperated fully in the investigation and will continue to cooperate as the case moves forward."

On its website, KWF described many of the students it helped as having "only known life on the streets, surrounded by the gang violence of the inner-city."

The foundation says it has worked with a number of groups, from Los Angeles-based Ladylike to the Houston Hoops Youth Basketball Program.

In addition to the 33 parents, a dozen people were indicted for conspiracy to commit racketeering. This is how they were identified in court documents:

Igor Dvorskiy: He worked as a "compensated standardized test administrator."

Gordon Ernst: Former head of men's and women's tennis at Georgetown University — left that role in January 2018.

William Ferguson: He "was employed as the women's volleyball coach at Wake Forest University."

Martin Fox: He was the "president of a private tennis academy and camp in Houston."

Donna Heinel: She "was employed as the senior associate athletic director at the University of Southern California."

Laura Janke: Former assistant coach of women's soccer at the University of Southern California — left role in January 2014.

Ali Khosroshahin: Former head coach of women's soccer at the University of Southern California — left that role in November 2013.

Steven Masera: Accountant and financial officer for the Edge College & Career Network and the Key Worldwide Foundation until Dec. 2017.

Jorge Salcedo: Salcedo "was employed as the head coach of men's soccer at the University of California at Los Angeles."

Mikaela Sanford: She was "employed in various capacities" with the Edge College & Career Network and the Key Worldwide Foundation.

Jovan Vavic: Vavic "was employed as the water polo coach at the University of Southern California."

Niki Williams: Williams worked as a "compensated standardized test administrator."

Fire erupts at Delaware City oil refinery

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


From:  YAHOO

1. History of Tosco Corporation – FundingUniverse
        by David Lincoln 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

On February 23, 1999, four workers at the Avon Refinery in Concord were burned to death after they tried to replace a leaky oil pipe. The San Francisco Chronicle reported [6] that one Tosco employee, Anthony Creggett, claimed shortly after the fire that plant managers had refused a request by four workers to shut down the high-temperature distillation tower during the repairs on the pipe.

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

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

Federal Investigation of Tosco Refinery Fire Finds Flawed Management Supervision

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

          Why Democrats have chosen Milwaukee for their big convention       Cache   Translate Page      

MILWAUKEE HAS fine breweries, a Harley Davidson museum and a history of attracting lively socialist settlers from Europe. It offers views over Lake Michigan. And it is just big enough, with 17,000 hotel rooms, to host hefty conferences. But none of that explains why the city beat Miami and Houston, bigger rivals, to host the Democratic convention in July 2020. When party delegates gather to pick a candidate to run against Donald Trump for the presidency in Milwaukee they will be signalling a renewed focus on the Midwest. Milwaukee will be the first Midwestern city to host a Democratic convention since Chicago in 1996. After Hillary Clinton’s neglect of the region in 2016, the party wants to make amends. “We are ready to set an example, proving Democrats can be strong where many counted us out” says Mandela Barnes, a Milwaukee native and the lieutenant-governor in Wisconsin.

Had Miami or Houston been picked that might have suggested a Democratic plan to win over new voters in the South in 2020. But Mr Trump won because he scooped the...Continue reading

Interview
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Houston, Texas
March 12, 2019


QUESTION: Given what’s happening in Venezuela, what’s your biggest concern on what’s happening right now?

SECRETARY POMPEO: The tragedy in Venezuela is deep and deepening. The people of Venezuela don’t have food, they’ll soon struggle to get water, and we’ve seen the power outages. Anybody who’s suffered an electrical outage knows what that ultimately means. We need to restore these services. The first step along the way is for Maduro to leave, for the regime to depart and allow democracy to flourish and let Interim President Juan Guaido take charge. And then the world – the United States, Europe, the neighbors of the region in South America and Central America – can begin to help the Venezuelan people restore democracy. And this is a once-wealthy country; we can make it so again.

QUESTION: Okay. Are you at all concerned that this might affect gas prices here in the U.S. (inaudible)?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So there’s always that risk, but we’ve certainly not seen that affect so far. There’s enough capacity; there’s enough room. We’re confident that we can work through this crisis, but frankly, we didn’t cause it, the Maduro regime did. And so if there’s an impact on gas prices, it’s a result of actions that another leader took. We’re working hard to make sure that there’s refined product gasoline – all the steps along the refinement process adequate so that we don’t see big price spikes here in the south part of the United States, or frankly, anywhere in the country.

QUESTION: Great. So what are you going to talk about today in your speech?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So I want to tell folks, really, three things. First, the incredible importance of what we’re doing here in the United States and the energy world. We’ll be the world’s largest exporter of crude oil before too terribly long, and that matters to American national security. It keeps people in Texas and Kansas and all across America safe.

The second thing I want to talk about is what it is we do for the people of Texas at the State Department. Sometimes out of mind, out of sight, are – they go along with each other. I want to convince them and show them what it is we’re doing on their behalf.

And then finally, I want to make sure that young people understand that being an American diplomat is an incredibly noble calling and see if I can’t convince a few of them to come join the United States Department of State.

QUESTION: All right. Anything else you can think of that I missed?

SECRETARY POMPEO: No, sir. That’s it.

Interview
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Houston, Texas
March 12, 2019


QUESTION: Mr. Secretary, thanks for sitting down with us. Let’s start with kind of the news of the day, and that is the decision to withdraw personnel from Venezuela. What can you tell us about that?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So Jason, it’s great to be with you, thanks for your time today. We made the decision last night that the situation in Venezuela changed, that the risk to American diplomats was too great. And so we’ve decided that we’ll have them all return to the United States. Keeping them safe is our first priority. We also found that it was constraining some of the things that we think we’re going to need to work on over the next weeks. We wanted to make sure we had the capacity to do that, so they’ll be coming home the next couple or three days.

QUESTION: What’s the biggest challenge in regards to Venezuela?

SECRETARY POMPEO: The devastation that Maduro has wrought on the Venezuelan people is truly horrific. They’ve got food and water shortages. We’ve seen over the past days the electrical outages that they can’t get fixed. This is really horrible. The American people have been very generous, have delivered over 200 metric tons of food aid into the region, but the Maduro regime won’t let it in. They won’t allow food for starving people or medicine for the sick to come in and take care of their people. And it’s what we, along with our partners in the region – Brazil, Colombia, all the neighbors of Venezuela – are working on to try and fix. We want a better life, we want democracy restored in Venezuela.

QUESTION: Obviously you travel the globe from country to country, crisis to crisis – North Korea, China, Venezuela, name it. As far as the Trump administration is concerned right now, what’s the most concerning or biggest global issue for you personally and/or the administration?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So it’s always hard to pick the top issue. We’ve certainly focused on North Korea, trying to convince Chairman Kim to honor the commitment he made this past June to denuclearize. The President’s focused on the border as well; that matters here in Texas. It’s a national security issue, too. The long-term threat that China poses to the United States is real, and we continue to work on that each and every day. And then I’m here, I’m here in Texas this week to talk about energy and American energy security. So the things we do domestically, the fact that we’re going to become the world’s largest producer and exporter of crude oil, is a big deal globally. It helps us make friends around the world and take pressure off some of those countries who have been relying on energy from countries they’d frankly rather not do business with.

QUESTION: There’s a new poll out this morning – Monmouth, I think – 57 percent of Americans supposedly wanting a new president in 2020. What is the Secretary of State’s role on the political side? Is there one?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Yeah, I’m in charge of working to be America’s senior diplomat and keep Americans safe. I suppose if we do that, the American people will be more likely to be happy, but it’s not what I’m focused on. What I’m focused on is making sure that each and every day, my team – that numbers in the tens of thousands that’s all around the world – is doing its job to project American values, the rule of law, the intrinsic greatness of the United States of America that helps keep Americans safe. I think we’re winning; I think we’re making real progress there. And I’m very proud of the work that this administration has done around the world.

QUESTION: A lot of Americans may not realize all the rank and file people who are doing day in and day out jobs in your department, many other departments, no matter what political crisis or drama is going on, right?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Everyone who gets a passport is interacting with an employee of the United States Department of State. We have a big task around the world. President Trump has enabled us to do really remarkable work. I’m very proud of our team, and I’m glad to be in Texas today to talk about what it is we do, how we recruit young people to come be American diplomats, and why I want Texans to come be part of the State Department as well.

QUESTION: The new budget proposal has a big chunk of money, obviously, for the border wall. You mentioned it a little earlier. What are the chances of that happening?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Sorry, I don’t do political predictions. I’m kind of out of that business. But I think there’s a bipartisan consensus that there’s real risk, that there’s a crisis down at our border. I hope they will provide the resources, that Congress will provide the resources that Americans are demanding along that border so that we can keep Americans safe. It’s not only about keeping people – and knowing who’s coming in, but we need to know what contraband’s passing along that border as well. I’ve seen this. We need to know who and what is coming across our southern border, and President Trump is firmly committed to achieving that.

QUESTION: CERAWeek, a lot of people realize it’s a big energy conference. What is the main message you’re going to deliver today?

SECRETARY POMPEO: The greatness of America and the importance of American energy to America’s national security, how it is the case that if we get it right at home, if we keep winning in the energy world here at home, that folks that live in San Antonio or Houston or Longview – I know Texas well – that the people of Texas will be safer and more secure, and that we’ll do a good turn for the rest of the world as well.

QUESTION: That it? Thank you, sir.

SECRETARY POMPEO: All right, Jason, thank you very much. It’s great to be with you.

QUESTION: Pleasure to meet you.

Interview
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Via Teleconference
March 12, 2019


QUESTION: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo joins us now. Secretary Pompeo, thank you for your time.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you, Laura. It’s great to be with you.

QUESTION: The U.S. has recently become the world’s largest oil producer and new reports say it could soon be the largest oil exporter. I understand your address today will focus on how this strengthens our national security. How is that?

SECRETARY POMPEO: I wanted to come to Texas today to talk about that very fact. This is a game-changer for American national security. As America’s most senior diplomat, I travel the world, and boy, there’s not a country I go to where energy isn’t at the top of their list, and what this does – what all of this success here in American domestic energy production does for me and for Americans, to keep them safe – is it permits us to share with those countries our wealth, our resources, to cut deals that support their energy security in places as far off as Vietnam and the Philippines and Europe.

And it permits them too to wean themselves from energy that they’re taking from adversaries, countries that want to do their country harm. This is a big deal for American national security. It gives us lots of power throughout the world, and our capacity has increased during the Trump administration. We intend to – intend to continue to do that, not only to create wealth for and jobs here in the United States, but to enhance America’s national security posture around the world as well.

QUESTION: The big news today again is Venezuela. One statistic you mentioned in a press conference yesterday is that Venezuela’s oil production is down by half since Nicolas Maduro took power. You accuse Cuba’s involvement as being about oil. Is oil also at the center of U.S. interest in Venezuela?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Only in the sense that we want the Venezuelan people to have access to their own wealth and not the corruption – the corruption that has followed the Maduro regime, this oil wealth being stripped away by the kleptocrats of the Maduro regime, taken for their personal benefit and not shared with the Venezuelan people. The Cubans have done the same. This isn’t what the Venezuelan people deserve, it’s not what they want, and America’s efforts to restore democracy and the rule of law, and to help feed and have medicine for the Venezuelan people – that’s the purpose of our efforts in Venezuela. And when we get this right, when Maduro is gone and there’s fair and free elections and democracy is restored, the oil wealth of Venezuela will be returned to its people.

QUESTION: Along with Cuba, you point to Russia as helping to support Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro. You just announced you’re withdrawing all diplomatic staff in Venezuela. In a tweet, you said, “The presence of U.S. diplomatic staff at the embassy has become a constraint on U.S. policy.” How do you mean?

SECRETARY POMPEO: We decided yesterday that it was important that we keep American diplomats safe, and so we made the decision that we would withdraw the remaining personnel there in Caracas and bring them back to the United States. So we’ll do that over the days ahead. Anytime you’re dealing with a situation that is deteriorating as fast that it is – as it is in Venezuela today, decisions you make are always encumbered by the fact that you know there’s real risk to your own people, people that you’ve sent into harm’s way. We wanted to get them back, we wanted to get them out of the country so that we could move forward in a way that provided that opportunity.

We have 200 metric tons of food sitting in the region, trying to deliver into Venezuela to feed the hungry and to provide medicine for the sick. We want to make sure that as we continue to work in the region alongside of our partners, we don’t have any constraints on action that we might need to take in order to achieve that.

QUESTION: That food that is waiting to support Venezuelan people, I assume part of the State Department budget goes out to pay for programs and food like that. What do you do with the Trump administration’s new budget proposal, which includes $13 billion in proposed cuts? Does that mean that support like this for places like Venezuela is lessened?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Oh, in fact just the opposite. Contained in the President’s budget request is up to $500 million, an enormous amount of resources that the Trump budget is proposing to provide to assist the Venezuelan people when the time is right. This budget will serve America well, America’s national security interests, because we’re prepared to help the Venezuelan people with real resources. The American taxpayers have been most generous, and President Trump has led that charge.

QUESTION: So as Trump’s budget decreases the spending for the State Department and also includes more military spending, should Americans be worried about policy shifting from diplomacy to boots on the ground?

SECRETARY POMPEO: You can take a look at the first two years of the Trump administration to see the effectiveness of our foreign policy. Our capacity to deliver really solid, really sound diplomatic outcomes – to build coalitions in a way that, frankly, the previous administration just chose not to do – a global coalition to put sanctions on North Korea, to hopefully get them to denuclearize. The world has come together – 50-plus nations – to recognize that Maduro’s time had come. A big, global coalition to take down the caliphate – over 80 countries in the Defeat-ISIS Coalition. We have worked diplomatic – incredibly successfully in the President’s first two years, and I’m very confident that we’ll have the resources, and I know we have the talent to deliver good outcomes for the American people in the days and weeks and months ahead as well.

QUESTION: You mentioned North Korea. The proposed cuts to the State Department come soon after a second summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, where no agreement was made. Where do we stand now in that situation?

SECRETARY POMPEO: I’ve personally been working on this alongside the President for my entire time as the Secretary of State, and in fact even just a bit before. In Singapore, in June of last year, Chairman Kim made a historic commitment to denuclearize his country, and in exchange the United States and President Trump made a commitment to provide peace and security and stability on the Korean Peninsula and a brighter future for the North Korean people. Our Japanese partners, our South Korean partners are working alongside us to achieve each of those goals from Singapore.

We didn’t make as much progress as we would have hoped in Hanoi, but the conversations continue. And meanwhile, there are not missile tests being conducted, there aren’t nuclear tests being conducted. We’ve made progress. Obviously more needs to be done. This has been a problem of a long standing, and we continue to march down the path, hopefully leading to a place where the threat of nuclear weapons from North Korea will be enormously diminished.

QUESTION: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Houston today for the energy conference known as CERAWeek. Secretary Pompeo, thanks again for your time.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you, Laura. You have a great day.

QUESTION: You too.

Interview
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Via Teleconference
March 12, 2019


QUESTION: San Antonio’s First News with Charlie Parker, Charity McCurdy in the 24-hour news center. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Houston, Texas today for the CERAWeek conference all about energy, in particular America.

Mr. Secretary, appreciate the visit this morning, but before we talk about what’s going on here in Texas, in particular Houston today, have to ask you about last night and what’s currently going on in Venezuela. Back in January, the decision to withdraw all dependence and reduce embassy staff to a minimum, and then your announcement last night that it’s time for everybody to get out.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Charlie, thanks for having me on the show. It’s great to be in Texas. We did in fact make the decision last night that we needed to remove the remaining folks we had on the ground there in Caracas. The situation is continuing to deteriorate. We’ve all seen the power outages – food, water all becoming more and more difficult – and we wanted to make sure we kept all the Americans working for the United States Government safe and get them back home.

QUESTION: Yeah, and the international effort to get Maduro out – well, I say international, not counting China, Russia, and Cuba – if things are to this point, if things are this bad and probably looking like they could get worse, what are the options? What do we do in Venezuela?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Well, the Venezuelan people have set the direction very clearly. They want Maduro gone. The Interim President Juan Guaido is leading an effort to get humanitarian assistance and the American taxpayers have been incredibly generous. Over 200 metric tons of food and hygiene kits and medicine on the ground, we haven’t been able to get them in. The Maduro regime has denied food to starving people and medicine to the sick. It’s really, really evil. And we need to continue to work to deliver. The Venezuelan people deserve it. This is a once-proud, resource-rich nation, and I’m confident. One of the reasons I’m here in Texas is to talk about energy, and Venezuela has it. We need to return the capacity of Venezuela to produce and create wealth for the Venezuelan people, and we’re working diligently with all of our partners in South and Central America and Europe to hopefully achieve that here as quickly as possible. The time is drawing short.

QUESTION: Secretary Pompeo, good morning. This is Charity McCurdy. As you mentioned, you’re in Houston to talk about America’s energy revolution, and the U.S. is on pace to overtake Saudi Arabia and Russia as the world’s biggest oil producer. As you know, Texas’s Permian Basin is a major player in that. What’s being done by the Trump administration to address pipeline capacity to ensure this production growth continues?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Well, Charity, great question, and incredibly important. First, I think the administration’s done an awful lot to get us where we are today, to reduce regulation, to make permitting faster. I was in this business for a bunch of years before I entered government service. I ran a company that made pumping units. I’ve spent a lot of time in Midland, Odessa, East Texas. I know the industry well. We now need to take all this product that we’ve got in the Permian Basin, and frankly in other places in America too, and make sure that we can get it to markets not only through pipelines here, but my task as America’s most senior diplomat is to make sure that there are markets available around the world, that the Europeans and Asia – they’re prepared to buy not only our crude oil, but our natural gas so that we can continue to create wealth here in America. And importantly, it has deep national security implications as well if we’re successful at this.

QUESTION: We’re talking to the Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo. Obviously when it comes to energy, you got to be strong, you got to grow, you got to integrate, diversify, and advance energy security. Just exactly what does that mean, Mr. Secretary, to advance energy security?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Everywhere I travel – I was in the Philippines last week and in Vietnam, I’ll be in the Middle East next week, then I’ll be back on to Europe – no matter which country I go to, they’re very focused on their own energy security. What does that mean? It means they have the capacity to deliver the energy that their citizens need to heat and cool their homes, that they have what they need for their infrastructure, for their businesses. And they want to get it from friends and allies and partners, and they don’t want to have to rely on adversaries who, when times get tough, can cut them off or raise prices or make their life difficult or, frankly, use energy to coerce them.

And so this American boom, this skyrocketing of energy production – you talked about us being number one in the world in crude oil exports. We’re going to approach that and natural gas before too long. Our ability to deliver that to our friends and partners around the world creates enormous security for people here in Texas and all across America.

QUESTION: We appreciate what you do and I guess on a light note, I’d like – I wish you got frequent flyer miles.

SECRETARY POMPEO: (Laughter.) Doesn’t quite work that way, but it is an incredible privilege to represent America around the world.

QUESTION: And we are glad that you do, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you very much. You all have a good day.

Interview
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Via Teleconference
March 12, 2019


QUESTION: Yes, and Secretary Mike Pompeo joins us (inaudible) Secretary of State, kind enough to carve out a couple of moments for us. He’s headed to Houston for a – to deliver a keynote to – at a big energy conference, Hal.

QUESTION: All right.

QUESTION: And we’ve got a lot to get into. Secretary, thanks for the time this morning. Let’s dive right into the news that came out this week that all of the sudden, the U.S. is the number one exporter of energy in the world, and this really strengthens our standing internationally, doesn’t it?

SECRETATRY POMPEO: Well great, it’s thanks to be with you. And it does, that’s why I’m down here. I wanted to talk about what U.S. energy production does for American national security, how it keeps people from Dallas and San Antonio and Houston and all across Texas safer, lets us work more closely with our friends and puts real pressure on those who want to do harm to the United States. So this energy production really matters. I wanted to come down here and talk about how, as American’s most senior diplomat, we use that to advantage to keep America safe.

QUESTION: Yeah, is that leverage for you when it comes to negotiating around the world?

SECRETATRY POMPEO: There are very few countries I travel to – I was in the Philippines last week and Vietnam, I’ll be in Europe in a couple of days and the Middle East. Everywhere I go, energy is at the top of the list. Demand for energy is only growing, and those who can produce and provide it have an enormous advantage when it comes to security around the world.

QUESTION: Are we at the point now where America can say we don’t have to worry about other countries anymore, Middle East oil, anything like that, we’re – we are on our own?

SECRETATRY POMPEO: So we’re getting close to where we’ll have true American energy dominance. It’s a global market; it’s a complicated market. But the more energy that we produce here in America, so the more we can do – and the Trump administration’s done a lot of this, reduce regulations, create opportunities for jobs and wealth creation in the energy industry in America – the safer Americans will be around the world as well.

QUESTION: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is with us right now. That leverage that we talk about when it comes to energy doesn’t just play in the Middle East. Does it factor into the negotiations that are ongoing with North Korea at all?

SECRETATRY POMPEO: North Korea presents a special situation for sure, but nobody can escape the truth. The truth is to grow an economy you need energy. Their electrical infrastructure needs work. They need refined petroleum products. One of the ways that we’ve convinced North Korea to move towards denuclearization is to reduce the amount of energy that they can import, and those sanctions that the United Nations put in place alongside of us have made a material difference. It’s made it harder for the North Koreans to do the things they need to do, and I think that’s at least in part why Chairman Kim made the commitment to denuclearize, and we’re hopeful that even though we didn’t get as far as we would have liked when the President and I were in Hanoi last week, we still have a path forward there.

QUESTION: Is North Korea – are we paying too much attention to it? Is there – is there a real true threat?

SECRETATRY POMPEO: So the – any time you have a nation that has nuclear weapons and the capacity to either sell those weapons to those that would want to present risk to the United States or the capacity to use a missile system for delivery, there’s a threat to the United States. Nuclear weapons are unique and especially risky, as you all well know, so I think it’s important, important that we get this right, important that we take down that threat to the United States.

QUESTION: A different kind of threat in South America with Venezuela that I know has your attention as well.

SECRETATRY POMPEO: It does. Last night we made the decision that we would withdraw the last of our diplomats from Caracas, so they’ll all be coming home. The calamity, the chaos that is engulfing Venezuela today is a direct result of socialism, of the Maduro regime and the Cubans and the Russians all destroying a once proud economy. The United States, the neighboring regions in South America, Central America, they want to have a better life, democracy restored in Venezuela. And America is prepared to play its part, an important part I believe, in helping that happen.

QUESTION: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is with us. What keeps you up at night?

SECRETATRY POMPEO: Oh goodness. Lots of things to focus on in the world, but just like you all, right, you just keep focused, you set priorities. I work for a President that understands the incredible importance of American national security, and you get up each day, put your helmet on, and get to work.

QUESTION: Just so you’ll know, I voted for Donald Trump, so I’ll ask you this: Fill in the blank. I wish the President would stop --

SECRETATRY POMPEO: I’m not going to answer that one for you this morning. (Laughter.)

QUESTION: How about this one then: I wish the President would start --

SECRETATRY POMPEO: (Laughter.) You’re not going to draw me into that.

QUESTION: Okay.

SECRETATRY POMPEO: I think --

QUESTION: That’s why --

SECRETATRY POMPEO: I think we’re getting it right most days.

QUESTION: That’s why I said I voted for him, and I didn’t mind asking those questions, so – well, thanks for playing along.

QUESTION: Yeah, and your timing is perfect. You’re there for the last week of the Houston radio – rodeo. The Kings of Leon are playing tonight. Enjoy the concert.

SECRETATRY POMPEO: I would love to get to that, and Susan and I – my wife – we’re from Kansas. We love rodeo too.

QUESTION: Yeah. Mike Pompeo --

QUESTION: There you go.

QUESTION: -- the Secretary of State, thanks for the time today.

SECRETATRY POMPEO: Thank you very much. You all have a good day.

QUESTION: Yeah, you too.

QUESTION: And keep up the good work by the way, too.

QUESTION: Yeah.

QUESTION: Thanks for serving us.

Interview
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Via Teleconference
March 12, 2019


QUESTION: Joining us from our Secretary of State Department – the State Department, is Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Good morning.

QUESTION: Mr. Secretary, welcome to Houston and thank you for joining us here this morning.

SECRETARY POMPEO: It’s great to be with you this morning.

QUESTION: Tell us a little bit about what’s going on in Venezuela and why we’re removing the last of our diplomats there.

SECRETARY POMPEO: We made the decision yesterday that it just was prudent to get these folks back. The situation there is deteriorating. The Maduro regime’s horrific leadership over the last years has just made life there so difficult, it began to make it more difficult for the United States to take the actions that it needed to do to support the Venezuelan people. So we concluded this was simply the right step to take and this was the right time to take it.

QUESTION: Now you’re more or less going around the country right now speaking to people. I understand we’re second on your tour. You’re here talking about energy policy. In Texas, energy security, border security, these are the foremost of Texans’ minds. How can you address both of those?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So that’s the reason I wanted to come down here. I – before I entered government service for the second time in my life, I was in that industry. I ran a company that made pumping units and sold (inaudible) equipment. I know the Permian Basin, I know East Texas well, and as the Secretary of State, energy turns out to be at the very center of what I do many, many days, whether I’m in the Philippines or in Europe. The issue of American energy, the ability of us to deliver that energy around the world, helps keep American safe. It’s an important diplomatic tool for the United States and the production boom that’s taken place over the past years is enormously important for American national security. I wanted to come to Texas today and share those thoughts with the people of Texas.

QUESTION: Okay. Do you have any thoughts on the border while you’re here as well? That’s an area that’s very, very important to the President is to secure more border wall funding to get that job done. Is there anything further we – that can be done in order to advance that agenda?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So you saw yesterday the President’s request for additional funding for the border wall and additional security measures as well. As the chief diplomat for the United States of America, I understand that we need to know who’s coming into our country. We need to make sure we can control the flow of not only people but drugs and other contraband across the border. So securing that border’s important. President Trump has made it an enormous priority and he is asking Congress to provide our administration the resources to achieve that goal.

QUESTION: We – how much cooperation are you able to get from these other countries? I mean, Mexico I know has been taking steps to try to help this blow-through that we’re getting from Central America, but how much influence can you really exert?

SECRETARY POMPEO: My relationship with the new Mexican Government has been fantastic. My counterpart Foreign Minister Ebrard has truly done a number of things which I think will, over time, have a real benefit, but we need them to do more. The number of folks crossing over the past weeks has increased. This isn’t good for Mexico to have these folks traversing. It’s not good for the people who are having to make this dangerous trek through Mexico as well. We need to do this collectively. We’re working closely with President Obrador and my foreign minister counterpart to come up with a comprehensive solution that will secure our border and also ensure that there’s less risk to the people who are sometimes living very desperate situations.

QUESTION: This is maybe a nonquitter here, but Europe, the EU is going to start requiring visas from Americans who want to head over to Europe. What’s that all about?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So I’ve seen those reports. I think we need to just learn a little bit more before we jump to too many conclusions.

QUESTION: All right, again, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is with us here on NewsRadio 740, KTRH. Obviously the President met not that long ago with Kim Jong-un in an attempt to try to move things a little bit forward in our dealings with North Korea. There’s been all sorts of reports about whether or not the North Koreans are restarting up some of their nuclear program. Is there anything you can tell us about that and bring us up to date on that story?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So the most important thing, I think, for folks to know is that the progress that we’ve made with North Korea over the past – goodness, year and change – has been real. They haven’t conducted any further missile tests, no more nuclear testing, two important tools for advancing their program. I was with the President in Hanoi. We didn’t make as much progress as we would’ve hoped achieving what Chairman Kim told us he would do. I’ve been with Chairman Kim I think now four or five times. He has promised to denuclearize. He did not arrive there prepared to do as much as we need him to do, and we’re going to continue to work to achieve that outcome. It is a real threat to the United States of America and we want to get North Korea to honor its commitment to denuclearize, and then there can be a brighter future for the North Korean people as well.

QUESTION: Stopping the war exercises or the naval exercises with South Korea, good idea you think?

SECRETARY POMPEO: The Department of Defense is confident it can maintain the readiness it needs to take whatever action it might need to take at some point to work with our allies, Japan and South Korea, and to keep the American people safe. President concluded that this made sense as we’re trying to develop a relationship with the North Koreans such that we can get this ultimate objective, something that frankly America has been trying to do for decades now without success. He concluded it made sense and I’m confident we can still protect American interests while reducing the number of major war games that take place there on the peninsula.

QUESTION: All right, Mr. Secretary, enjoy your time here with us in Houston.

QUESTION: We don’t have time to get to China, but thank you so much for --

SECRETARY POMPEO: Good enough. Good to talk to you. Thanks for having me on the show. It’s great to be here in Houston.

QUESTION: It’s good to have you here, sir. Thank you again.

Interview
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Houston, Texas
March 12, 2019


QUESTION: Good morning. And the Secretary of State does have a packed schedule, but he was able to squeeze us in for a few minutes here. So thank you so much for being here this morning. Welcome to Houston.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Great to be here.

QUESTION: Now, in your keynote address tonight, right around 6 o’clock, you’ll be talking to people about – the title of your speech is the role of energy in this 21st century political system. So what do you plan to tell or talk to those American businesses about their role in this political ecosystem?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So what we’re doing in America with respect to energy is incredibly important to what I do every day, working to keep Americans safe through diplomacy. Our capacity to produce energy to convince adversary countries that we don’t rely on them for energy and to tell our friends that we can assist them by providing energy to their country to take leverage away from their adversaries has proven incredibly important. So the boom, the American energy boom is important. Our administration’s worked hard to make that happen, and it’s keeping Americans safe.

QUESTION: In talking about those foreign affairs, we do have to switch gears to Venezuela. Yesterday you announced that you’ll be removing all the diplomats from the embassy there, in part because of that deteriorating situation, but I want to also quote part of your tweet. You said, in part, “the conclusion that the presence of U.S. diplomatic staff at the embassy has become a constraint on U.S. policy.” Are you willing to elaborate on what constraint on U.S. policy is and where you see things going after this?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Oh, sure. So the conditions on the ground have deteriorated over the last days and weeks. The Maduro regime has wreaked a real tragedy on the nation, the people of Venezuela. Our mission has been to restore democracy and help the Venezuelan people. Our embassy was an important part of that; the people there have done great work. But it was time for them to come back. Their security is always paramount. And it’s just gotten very difficult.

It’s also the case that when you’re making decisions about how to proceed, you have to consider the fact that there are still many Americans there on the ground. We wanted to get our diplomatic team back so that our capacity to work with Brazil and Colombia, and all the countries who have joined this enormous coalition to try to benefit the people of Venezuela, can be made in a way that doesn’t create further risk to American diplomats.

QUESTION: And you were talking about the humanitarian crisis. There’s already been a lot of money for aid going there. What else moving forward, since it has really only gotten worse?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So the American taxpayers have been very generous. We’ve delivered a couple hundred metric tons of assistance, medicine, food, hygiene kits. We haven’t been able to get it in; the Maduro regime has prevented us from delivering that. It’s horrific to deny food to starving people or medicine to the sick, but that’s what Maduro has chosen to do.

We’re going to keep at that. We’re going to continue to work with coalition partners. We’re going to try to help build up democratic institutions in a way that will ultimately convince Maduro that his days are numbered, that he ought to leave, and he ought to allow the duly elected Interim President Juan Guaido to begin to take charge to start the process of rebuilding this country that can be such a tremendous place.

QUESTION: And switching gears to North Korea, with the last – I know you know that it was coming – with the last summit with President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, it was essentially a stalemate. At least that’s what it seems to us, because Kim Jong-un was saying he doesn’t – he hasn’t released a plan yet, at least, for denuclearization. President Trump says that he isn’t willing to lift the U.S. sanctions to make that happen. So it seems like a stalemate, but you’ve actually been on record saying you don’t see it like that. Why is that?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Look, this is a long journey. We’ve been at this for a couple decades in the United States. What President Trump has done is he has built a global coalition. These are UN Security Council resolutions; they’re not American sanctions, they’re global sanctions. The whole world understands the threat that Chairman Kim’s nuclear weapons present to the world. Chairman Kim’s now committed to giving them up. He said he would denuclearize. He’s told me that face to face, personally, no less than half a dozen times. Now we need to figure out how to do it, how to achieve it. Our goal is to keep America safe, to keep South Korea and Japan from being under this threat. And when we do, we hope we can make a brighter future for the North Korean people as well. That’s the deal we’re trying to get to. President Trump understood that what was offered wasn’t sufficient, so more work to do.

QUESTION: And you having talked to him directly, Kim Jong-un, what is it about his statements that you actually believe?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Well, we only will value action. We all – talk is cheap. It’s important that we actually begin to deliver on the commitments. The two presidents back in June of last year were in Singapore. Each made serious commitments to the other. Chairman Kim committed to denuclearize; we committed to working to make North Korea have a brighter future and to stability and security arrangements on the peninsula. Our allies, South Korea and Japan, are prepared to work alongside of us. What we’ll need to see is action, and that’s what we’re counting on, and it’s what I’m hopeful we’ll get in the months ahead.

QUESTION: Thank you so much --

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you.

QUESTION: -- Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. And we’ll send it on back to you, Jose and Melissa.

          BARONESS Confirms 'Gold & Grey' Album Title; Cover Artwork Unveiled      Cache   Translate Page      
Savannah, Georgia metal band BARONESS has unveiled the full cover artwork of its upcoming album, "Gold & Grey". The band's fifth disc is due later in the year. BARONESS guitarist/vocalist John Baizley created the new album artwork, just as he did for all four of the group's previous albums as well as the outfit's EPs. Baizley stated about the "Gold & Grey" painting: "This is just the first piece of a much larger puzzle. Like the forthcoming album itself, it is the result of an intense, tireless, and psychotically convoluted creative process. "Both artistically and musically, BARONESS have always taken a no-compromise approach towards our releases, and I can't express strongly enough how excited we are to be so close to the verge of our newest release. "This painting was born from a deeply personal reflection on the past 12 years of this band's history, and will stand as the sixth and final piece in our chromatically themed records. "It has been an absolutely wild ride, a truth much stranger than fiction, with nearly as many low points as there have been highs, but throughout all, this band has offered me an inspired place to express myself and find some level of comfort through our visual and sonic output. "I hope you all enjoy this album cover (sorry it's not called 'Orange'). Don't look too closely, you might just see all the hidden elements. "We want to thank everyone for your heartfelt support over the years, it means the world to us. We also appreciate your continued patience. "'Gold & Grey' will be out soon, and then the real fun begins. I assure you, we have no plans to slow down anytime soon." BARONESS played a new song, "Borderlines", live for the first time on March 8 at the opening concert of the band's co-headlining tour with DEAFHEAVEN in Houston, Texas. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below. BARONESS released its Grammy-nominated fourth album, "Purple", in 2015. BARONESS is Baizley, Gina Gleason (guitar), Nick Jost (bass) and Sebastian Thomson (drums).

          IN FLAMES Singer Says CHRIS BRODERICK Is Doing A 'Great' Job Filling In For NICLAS ENGELIN      Cache   Translate Page      
IN FLAMES' singer Anders Fridén says that Chris Broderick is doing a "great" job filling in for guitarist Niclas Engelin on the band's current North American tour. "Niclas had to stay home and deal with some personal things," the singer told Sticks For Stones in a new interview (hear audio below). "We've known [Chris] for 17 years. He was in a band called JAG PANZER, and they opened up for us back then, so we've been friends since. And when Niclas called us, like 48 hours before we had to leave, and he went to the hospital — he had to. So we didn't wanna cancel. Our music is made for two guitars, and we didn't wanna have one guitar playing and everything else on a backing track — we wanted to have someone playing it. We happily found out that Chris was free and he came out and we had a couple of days' rehearsal in Austin before the tour started in Houston. And, yeah, it's going great. We've known him, as I said, for a long time, so we knew it would work on a social level. And [his] guitar [playing] is obviously phenomenal." Fan-filmed video footage of IN FLAMES' first concert with Chris, which took place on February 2 at the House Of Blues in Houston, Texas, can be seen below. IN FLAMES recently completed a short tour with ALL THAT REMAINS and ALL HAIL THE YETI and is currently on the road in North America with WITHIN TEMPTATION. IN FLAMES' new album, "I, The Mask", was released on March 1 via Nuclear Blast (worldwide, excluding North America) and Eleven Seven Music (North America). The 12-track disc reunites IN FLAMES with Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson (MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, MOTÖRHEAD) who also produced 2016's "Battles". Additionally, the album was mixed by Grammy Award winner Chris Lord-Alge (CHEAP TRICK, LINKIN PARK) and mastered by Grammy-winning mastering engeneer Ted Jensen (PANTERA, EAGLES, GUNS N' ROSES).

          The Hurry Up: Trey Leroux Wasn't “Starstruck” by Ohio State's Offer, Buckeyes Make Two More Cut Lists      Cache   Translate Page      
The Hurry Up is your nightly dose of updates from the Ohio State football recruiting trail, keeping tabs on the latest from commits and targets from around the country.

Trey Leroux Isn’t “Starstruck”

As was documented in yesterday’s story about three-star Norwalk, Ohio native Trey Leroux’s commitment to Ohio State, Leroux had just received his offer after visiting Ohio State and watching spring practice March 8. He chose to commit to that offer on March 11. Norwalk High School head football coach Todd Fox said, though, that Leroux didn’t make his commitment because of a “starstruck” Ohio State offer.

Fox said Ohio State offensive line coach Greg Studrawa had done a good job of developing a relationship with Leroux since the spring of 2018 and that Leroux needed one look at how Ohio State ran its program and practices before deciding he new where he wanted to go.

“We sat down and talked over the weekend a couple times, and we talked about how maybe he needed to wait and think it through,” Fox said. “But as the weekend went further, he just said, ‘There’s no thinking. I know what I want to do.’”

Leroux was searching for a place that felt like home, where he could be treated like part of a family and develop as a player, Fox said, and some other schools had been providing that type of a feeling for Leroux. He had offers from schools like Indiana, Purdue, Rutgers and other non-Power 5 programs. He had been receiving interest from schools like Notre Dame, Michigan State and Michigan but none of the schools had pulled the offer trigger on the 6-foot-8 Ohioan.

“Most kids in Ohio dream of playing for Ohio State, but he’s learned a lot through this process and that there are things other than that out there,” Fox said. “It’s not just a starstruck Ohio State offer. It was, ‘Okay, all the things I want, Ohio State offers.’”

Fox said one of the things that stood out to Leroux was a one-on-one conversation with new head coach Ryan Day, where Day made Leroux feel as if he would be entering a familial atmosphere.

“He really made him feel like, ‘Okay, this is a guy that wants me. They want me to be a part of this program and part of this family,’” Fox said. “That’s what he was looking for.”

Leroux, at 6-foot-8, 320 pounds, has a lot of shaping up to do before he graduates, and Studrawa and Day have communicated to Fox and Leroux that they look forward to seeing how he can change his body before he even steps foot on campus in 2020. Fox said the change from his sophomore season to his junior season was already impressive, but the change that can and is already happening between his junior and senior seasons could be exponential.

OSU Makes The Cut for Two Others

In the same day that four-star Colorado offensive tackle Reece Atteberry included Ohio State in his top-five schools, the Buckeyes were included in two more cut lists Monday evening — No. 1 2020 safety R.J. Mickens’ top-11 and four-star 2020 Kentucky offensive tackle John Young’s top-seven.

Mickens is the No. 42 player overall and is coming off of his fourth visit to Clemson. While clearly having enough interest in Ohio State to include it on his cut list, Rickens is very high on Clemson and a few other schools. The other schools included were Alabama, LSU, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Michigan, Notre Dame, Florida, Nebraska and Miami (FL).

Ohio State junior cornerback Jeffrey Okudah tweeted at Mickens and four-star Arlington cornerback Jalen Kimber to encourage the two Texas corners to choose Ohio State. Okudah is the only Texas cornerback on the 2019 Ohio State roster.

Young included a slew of midwestern schools in his top-six, as Ohio State was joined by Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan, Purdue and Georgia (obviously not a midwestern school). Young has a lot of interest in Kentucky but has said he isn’t ruling out Ohio State and Greg Studrawa. He holds his Ohio State offer high on his list and plans to commit sometime in the summer.

College Admission Scheme Hits IMG Academy Director

IMG Academy director Mark Riddell was charged with taking SAT and ACT exams for money, per this report in the Miami Herald. The charge is part of a larger, nationwide story that detailed the cases of 33 parents who paid to have stand-ins for their children on college entrance exams, ensuring that their children were admitted into schools like USC, UCLA, Texas and others.

The report by the Miami Herald touched on the fact that Riddell had been involved in the mail fraud since 2011. There is one case that was detailed from 2018 that explained how Riddell traveled from Tampa to Houston to take an ACT exam for a student the same day and then flexed by guessing he'd scored a 35 out of 36. He scored a 35 and was paid $10,000 after taking the exam in his hotel room. The test administrator was paid $5,000. 

IMG Academy is known widely in throughout US high school athletics as one of the most successful schools to push athletes into Division I programs. While no students were listed in the reports as of yet, IMG has several alumni that have had college and professional success, including former Alabama running back and current Dallas Cowboy Bo Scarbrough, current New York Giant Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois. It's most notable alumni are through baseball though, where nine-time MLB All-Star Gary Sheffield, Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto and Chicago Cubs pitcher Kyle Kendrick all played.


          Bradley Roby Will Sign One-Year, $10 Million Deal with Houston Texans, Per Report      Cache   Translate Page      
After five seasons with the Denver Broncos, Bradley Roby is set to continue his NFL career with a new team.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Charlie Morton 'fully expecting' to retire after current contract      Cache   Translate Page      
New Rays right-hander Charlie Morton has been open in the past about his uncertainty surrounding how long he aims to continue playing, and he told MLB Network’s Jon Morosi that he is “fully expecting” to retire once his current contract with the Rays expires (Twitter link). The 35-year-old signed a two-year, $30M contract with Tampa Bay this offseason, allowing him to pitch closer to his Florida home. Morton’s contract also contains a vesting option for the 2021 season, which leaves open the possibility that he’ll pitch through his age-37 season, though that’s far from a certainty at this point. Signed by the Astros to a two-year contract prior to the 2017 season, Morton broke out as an unexpected star in Houston, not only giving the ’Stros 313 2/3 innings of 3.36 ERA ball but also providing some memorable postseason moments. The righty fired five shoutout innings against the Yankees in the decisive Game 7 of the 2017 ALCS, pitched six innings of one-run ball against the Dodgers in Game 4 of the 2017 World S

の僧積極的に協力して紅軍の医療スタッフに多くの紅軍の負傷者を治療。現地を今に伝えているいくつかの庶民が治療を赤軍の物語。例えば、当時じゅうに歳の赵文斌、発見数名紅軍の戦士負傷後、隠した彼らの家の柴房、彼は父と一緒に紅軍の戦士血まみれの服を着替え、毎日紅軍の戦士を薬出前紅軍の戦士の負傷後に部隊を追いかけて。ぬれる灘村もかつては紅軍の集中保養地。民主的な者刘纯武父刘春やや現地での国民の支持の下、収容を救助した100人近い靑い傍線の坂の戦いで負傷した赤軍落後傷病兵。当時刘纯武区長は国民党の、彼が治安を理由に、厳禁殺害赤軍は、負傷者が送られてきて紅軍の実家、供給彼ら寝食を手伝ってあげてください人の傷を愈し、彼らの回支援部隊。「その一段を体現している赤軍と百姓軍民の親しい仲の赤いことを伝わってゆく、色々な手段を重厚な人文の物語を作って見え、触れる文化のキャリヤーで、歴史はもう横たわって記念館にではなく、生きて大衆の中に入る。同時に、私たちは安土城の中では一層鮮やかに。」李宛儒は記者に教えて。43歳の肖の永洪は記念館の1名の保安も、合唱団のメンバー。本人だけでなく、館内は凡是歌の保安、キャスター、コック、清掃などのスタッフが参加したこの芸術団。彼らのアレンジとなって「長徴組み歌》、ふだんは記念館で無料で観光客が出演。「内輪に言っても、今は習水県、老人から子供まで四渡赤水戦にも一定の理解。続いて北京、上海、広東、新疆などの党組織または個人はここに来て、党性教育を展開し、愛国主義教育などの赤い体験活動。」李宛儒、今後、我々は赤色を文化をもっと宣伝して、赤い血がずっと続く。女子バレーボールの精神をこらして中華振興基地の情熱漳州目撃チャンピオン足跡本紙記者张晔钟自光明2016年はち月21日、リオのオリンピック、中国女子バレー復帰頂点。スクリーンに若い娘たちを叫んで、抱きしめて。黄色の奇山も笑った。福建省の西安の体育の訓練基地で、身は副主任の彼で、笑顔の中で喜びがあって、あっさりしていることがあって、もっと遠いリオの娘たちに対する心配があります。バレーボールという南方の町はついに女子バレーボールで世界のまなざしを引きつけた。前世紀80年代の女子バレーボール、外メディアはこの地を「秘密の基地」と呼んでいる。国家チームは大会前には必ずお昼の合宿に戻って、メディアは親切にして「女子バレーボール」と呼んでいます。今、中国女子バレーボール人の輝かしい実績が、それに恥じた「優勝かご」になりました」。しかし、中国女子バレーボールと基地人の心の中で、ここで一番暖かい名前がある――「実家」。44年、中国女子バレーはここから来て、風雨を経て、女子バレーボールの精神はここで創造して伝承されています。人の泥を転がって何層の皮の女子バレーボールの精神が“花の精神”の時間が1972年10月に戻ってきて、国家の魚は広州で第一のバレーボールの基地を建設することを決定して、この時、距離が間もなく行われる第1回全国の重点の市のバレーボールチームの合宿時間はすでに多くなくなった。中国女子バレーの飛躍記念館にこのような“奇跡”が記録された――当時、モンゴル軍のパーティションの司令官は数万本を集めていて、大量の人手が入っていて、竹の柱は梁、竹の葉は葉を入れて、更に1階の油のフェルトを覆って、地面は朱や石灰、砂と砂を巻いて平らで、1つは6つのバレーボールの場所を覆っていた「暖かい館」が28日、順調に落成しました。12本の男女バレーボールチームがここに来たのですが、その中には、後に有名なものがあります。彼らは昼間は葉があって、交替でキャッチして、晩に1つの蛇口を囲んで顔を洗って歯を磨いて、井戸の上で水を水で洗って洗濯します。「自慢」がどんどん磨いてきたのだが、足元の石炭は隊員の太もも、肘、白のバレーボールに血がついた。「泥だらけになって、何階の皮を張って、練習技術をして、円高峰を目指す」という元基地主任は、苦しい条件の下、中国のバレーボールが作った唯一の「自慢の精神」である。「女子バレーの精神は、実は解放軍ということではない。」経験者として、名が女子バレーに対して一歩一歩成長した歴史は記憶に新しい:意志はどのように鍛えられますか?ドアを開けて訓練する。メンバーたちは駐屯地に着いて、解放軍のことを学び、数万人の人たちは訓練を見学して、苦労して、場の下で励ました目を見て、毎回歯を食いしばって堅持した。レベルはどのように向上しますか?練兵合戦。各クラスのグループの集合基地、毎日の訓練時間は少なくとも7時間以上、1つの合宿シーズンは1チームの試合はいつも30場以上で、各チームのスタイルの流派は多種多様で、競争の中で売ることができます。1976年、中国女子女子バレーボールの基地で新たに結成された。監督は12本の合宿チームから15人の女将を出して、久しぶりに「中国」のユニホームを着た。今回の再編では、式典がなく、映像もなく、選手が自慢している新人は、その時に知られていない世界の新星がここから上がっていく。国家チームの訓練はいっそう苦になった!任務が終わってはいけない,断固として授業が終わる。水の中で、バーベルの訓練が終わって水にすくい出したように、あまりにも壁に頼りになって、まるで人形の汗が残っていた」……「厳重にする」という要求の下に、意志が強い、水平に優れたチームが、世界の舞台に登場する。1981年、第3回世界杯女子バレーボール大会、中国女子バレーボール7枚目、初優勝。北京では天安門広場に殺到して「中国万歳、女子バレー万歳」と叫んでいた。会見では、学生たちが葉や洗面器をたたいたり、歌ったり叫んだりしたりしていた。このすべてはただ始まるだけ。1982年、第9回世界選手権、1984年、第23回オリンピック、1985年、第4回ワールドカップ、1986年、第十回世界選手権、中国女子チームは「5连覇」の成績で、中国人が「振興の三大球」の夢の中で、書いて傲慢な人の一ページ。「女子バレーボールの精神」になる時代の名刺。钟家琪「女子バレーボールの精神は「竹棚精神」の続き」、長年女子バレーボール報道の元『南部の日報記者罗如岗「女子バレーボールの精神、離れないで彼女たち自ら彊めて息まず、愛国献身」……その特殊な年代を超えた精神、女子バレーボール競技の範疇をこらして各中華振興の情熱も、そばに世代の中国人の成長の精神力。実家人苦楽を全力で保障の後方勤務の秘密基地の「秘密兵器」1981年、世界一の女子バレーボール世界チャンピオンをきゅう、く年後、丸の漳州基地がだんだん知る人は。外国メディアの記者のコーチ、現地を訪れた際にも困惑:訓練条件は普通で、甚だしきに至ってはとても貧相な基地から、一体何が「秘密兵器」?答えを探してから歴史の中で。1978年、钟家琪まわされて掌握する基地で、異動の原因は、「選手を解決して食事をしたくない」の問題。「私は選手の経験を、そんなに大きい運動量はもちろん、食事をしたくないの。」どのように队员たちは「食べて満足している」となり、钟家琪就任後まず解決する問題。毎回試験で大胆、第二年、基地は初めて「自由の食事”全開――隊員たちはいつ終わり訓練、十数種類のごはんを温めて、スープを選べ、皿の料理。シェフの班長严文忠、隊員たちの訓練中に、時折场边やじ馬見物を見て、訓練隊員強度、食事をする時、ララ家庭たり、味。徐々に、彼の心の中は一冊の「女子バレーボールのレシピ」「周晓兰豚足の醤油煮袁伟民好き、好きな魚のように、曹慧英好き飴和えパスタ、最も食前トマト郎平……」甚だしきに至ってはマスターした「心理戦」、隊員らは「当てメニュー」では、いつの間にか、食欲を馳せる。一心にところだけでなく、食堂。「お湯があって、疲労回復の第一歩」になっていたが、基地社員やコーチは家族のようによく知られている。「実家」という親切な呼び方は、代々女子バレーの娘たちの愛情を凝縮しているだけでなく、皆さん自身の「要求」である」。1985年以前、中国女子バレーボールの寮条件は粗末である。ある日、長い間公共トイレに行ったときに風邪を引いて、入院してきた。李さんは従業員を集めて会議を開く時に言います!」討論を経て、従業員たちは自発的に従業員寮の金を寄付して女子バレーボールのマンションを建てた。1992年、中国女子バレーボールはバルセロナオリンピックで意外に負けていた。ニュースは覚えていて、ニュースは渋谷に伝わって、開催中の市の経済の仕事会議がすぐに1項の議題を増加することを決定します―――どのように女子バレーボールを支持して再生することを支持しますか?当時、建設中の訓練競技両用館「飛ぶ館」は資金不足で停滞し、市ではすぐに「1人当たり1元寄付」と呼びかけ、早く500万元を集めて工事を始めた。今、新しい訓練競技場や選手ビルが基地の計画に入っている中、新しい特集の基地の姿が見えてきました。しかし、中国女子バレーの代々伝承されたように、精神は永続的で、基地がどのように変化しても、一粒の「実家人」の心は永遠にここにあり、女子バレーを守り、風雨を進む。彼の捧げた土地の世の世の世の世の世の世の世の世の世の世の世の世の世の変化の大きな変化に大きな変化があります。魚の葉の葉があって、黄河が1つの大きいチームを振られて、盛んに行って、波の音が水に満ちた河原にぬれている。1962年を振り返って、木の党委員会の書記の目の前に現れたのは、もう一つの光景である。全土を横断した二つの黄河は、見渡す限りの黄砂である。一面の葉のない巣の中に、青の氷が結ばれていた。白い土の地には、寒風に震えていた。魚は困難を恐れず、幹部を率いて大衆を率いて、石を戦って、砂を抵抗して、アルカリ性を治して、「天と月を教える」という道を開いている。「皆さん、お客様、お乗りのお客様の列車は、改札を始めました」と誓った……」南駅は、高速鉄道上の重要なサイトです。5万平方メートルの広場は大気が広い。待合室では、ナツメの赤い本革のシートが数百枚あります。従業員の案内によって、車に乗るのは自慢から鄭州駅まで、32分だけで、車より1時間余り節約します。南駅南駅は毎日31便、上海まで約4時間、西安まで約2時間30分に直行しています。9月15日の中秋節、開通5日だけの南駅南駅は一度の試練を迎えました。当初は乗客1000人が予定されていたが、この日は2000人余りの旅行者を送った。小さな列車の駅は,葉があるものの変遷を記録した。54年前には、長さが元委員会の党委員会書記になりました。最初の日,彼は駅に向かって被災者を訪ねた。「3~5年苦戦している」という声を出している。目的を達成しないで,私たちの言葉の誓い。このような決心と根気で、身体の病に苦しめられず、大自然と大自然と、一つの勝利を得た。数十年後には、各都市との距離は変化していないが、彼女の発展は、一日一日。列車の駅のこのノードの上で、私達は見た――乗客は変わっています:50年以上前の乗客は衣服がぼろぼろで、老いて子供を支えて、列車に乗って乞食に行きます。今のところ、乗客はファッション、南北、旅行の勉強、ビジネスチャンスを探しています。列車は変化しています:50年以上前の列車は蒸気機の列車の頭から引いて、よく遅れています。今、高速鉄道は世界をリードし、時速300キロである。駅は変わっています:50年以上前の海の列車の駅、何かがあります、都市の苦難の証人です。今の海南駅は、広場の周りにバス停、長距離バス駅、ショッピングセンターを建設し、重要な交通の中枢、商業センターになります。「三害」の姿は、黄河が18曲げ、最後は蘭考県で頭を張っている。ここは「U」の字を呈しており、地勢が険しい、水が激しく、歴史には29回の決壊があった。最近の1回は1932年旧暦6月21日である。「六月二十二十一、南北堤を開けて、まず城に入って、小さな葉をつけています……」世纪のろくじゅう年代、黄河は蘭考大地を殘して縦横に川や低地で、遇日照りに砂が暴れ、遇冠水の地面にたまった水がわく。1963年、焦裕祿率いる人民を掘って、蘭考川修ブレーキ、除涝、浚渫、水害対策を行い、焦裕祿1964年に亡くなったが、作業を継続。黄河は同じまま、蘭考人治理を通じて「三害」は、頭には东坝黄河灣観光スポット。車で向かう东坝頭、黒のアスファルト平穏はしっかりしていて、街路樹の木の緑、黄河に近づくにつれて、緑のますます濃厚。黄色川のほとりに停泊している数隻の船で、経営の特色美味蘭考。堤防の上で、村人は販売用の「筲箕米をとぐ」。毛主席が視察黄河記念亭ながら、多くの観光客に写真を撮る。遠くに、数台のとうもろこし収穫機が疾駆黄河の浮き橋、ごろごろの声を連れて豊作の喜び。昔の黄河は昔から顔を変えて顔を変えた。一枚の“葉の木”の種を植えて1つの魚の産業を出てきて暖かい同志の記念館に入って、彼が生前使ったことがあるいくつかの道具は今まで完全に保存されています。1本の水の使用のわらを探して、何度も洪水の深さを測定することができません;1本の芽を持っています。魚が長い間働いて仕事の間に,大衆を率いて“農産物の間”のモードで砂風を治めることを率いて,成果が高い。そして、海は全国で知られていたものである。名物県の町では、自らの手で栽培された一本の木が2人の柱になった大きな木になった」。今日は木の畑、家の前の後ろ、ダムの頭を堤防にして、どこにも葉の力強い姿が見えます。蘭考県の生態を変えると同時に、楽器を作るための最高の原料となっている。それは変形しにくい、脱脂後透音性が良いと呼ばれて「呼吸の木材」。徐場村、キリ金持ちになるとなり、遠近有名な「楽器村」。世纪のきゅうじゅう年代から、徐場村で加工琴で有名だ。村の600人多かっよんじゅう多世帯を持って、琴工房、年産箏、琴、琵琶など楽器にじゅう以上のシリーズのご万件。統計によると、近年蘭考現地を利用して良好な桐の資源の開発と生産、箏、琵琶、琴、二胡などにじゅう多品種の民族楽器、年産民族楽器よんじゅう万件じゅうご億元、年間生産高。国内箏、琴、琵琶の音板80

30多年前,女排姑娘们在决赛中,连续打败世界强手,获得了5个世界冠军。在国门初开,国人最需要自信的时候,给予国人巨大的鼓舞。女排精神成为时代标杆。  还有井冈山精神、延安精神、抗战精神、西柏坡精神、“两弹一星”精神、雷锋精神……每一种精神都是一段可歌可泣的历史,每一种精神都是催人奋进的力量。  重访故地,追思英烈, 正是仁人志士坚守信仰、不畏艰险、前仆后继、蹈死不顾,所以才有中华文明的不绝一缕,才有一息尚存之后的重新崛起,才有屈辱之后的觉醒与爆发。这些民族精神,也将在新时代激励我们为实现伟大复兴而奋斗。  今天是共和国67岁生日,让我们翻开历史,走近这些故事的主人公,重温我们这个国家和民族的精神“传家宝”。    80载风雨征程,信仰不变血脉赓续  “半截皮带” 记录长征精神  本报记者 李 坚  在某集团军军史馆里,陈列着一条老式牛皮皮带,它只有半截,上面烙着“长征记”3个字。每年新入伍的战士都要到军史馆参观,聆听“半截皮带”的故事。皮带的主人是谁?为何只剩下了半截?又是如何保存到今天的呢?面对记者的疑问,该集团军政治部宣传处军史办干事朱翔向记者讲述了那个发生在长征途中的感人故事。  “皮带的主人周广才是红四方面军第31军93师274团8连的一名普通战士。”朱翔说,在80年前红军翻越雪山草地时,周广才和战友们将皮带的另一半熬成了“牛皮带汤”充饥,剩下的半截皮带,他们铁了心要留下来去见毛主席。在这个信念的支撑下,战士们忍饥挨饿,将这半截皮带保留了下来。  时光回溯到1936年7月,红二、六军团和红四方面军在甘孜会师后,根据党中央北上抗日的指示,两军分路向北挺进。红31军第三次穿行在茫茫数百里的草地上。这是一片怎样的草地呢?位于青藏高原与四川盆地之间的过渡地带,纵长500余里,横宽300余里,海拔都在3500米以上,是世界海拔最高的高原湿地。自然环境恶劣到什么程度?朱翔向记者形容:“草甸之下,积水淤黑;不见山丘,不见树木;鸟兽绝迹,人烟荒芜。”据说,当地群众听说红军队伍要凭借两条腿穿越草地,摇头劝说:“只有蓝天上的白云和翱翔的雄鹰可以穿越草原,你们还是回去吧!”除了自然环境恶劣,部队还面临着缺衣少粮的严峻考验。  “刚进入草地时,战士每人每天还有三两青稞面粉,行至中途,就陷入了断粮的窘境,一日一顿,一顿半饱。”朱翔说,为了战胜饥饿,战士们想尽一切办法:挖野菜、嚼草根,甚至从牛粪里捡食牛没有消化的粮食,还有战士因为误食了毒草而身亡。最后连野菜草根都没有了,战士们就把钉鞋的皮子、皮带熬汤喝。  《牛皮腰带歌》由此而来。“牛皮腰带三尺长,草原荒地好干粮;雪水煮来别有味,野火烧熟分外香;一截用来煮野菜,一截留下见中央;不怕艰难困苦多,颗颗红星永向党。”在艰苦的环境中,战士们仍然保持着对革命事业的乐观。  周广才当时只有14岁,他所在的班原有14名战士,到达草地时只剩下7人。进入草地不久,他们的干粮也吃完了,只能挖野菜、吃草根、啃树皮,到后来连野菜也找不着了,他们只好吃枪带和鞋上的皮子。这些东西没多久也吃光了,于是大家解下自己的皮带煮着吃。  朱翔告诉记者,凭着几条皮带,周广才和战友们坚持了一段时间。后来,战友们的皮带都吃完了,全班只剩下最后一条皮带,也就是周广才那条皮带。周广才有些不舍,因为这条皮带是1934年他在任合场战斗中缴获敌人的战利品,已经陪伴周广才两年时间了。为了抵抗饥饿,周广才含泪将自己的皮带拿了出来,看着班长用小刀把皮带切成一条条的细丝,漂在稀溜溜的汤水里,他忍不住痛哭了一场。当皮带第一个眼儿前面那一截被吃完后,周广才实在忍不住了,他哭着对战友们说“我不吃了,同志们,我们就快胜利会师了,把它留着做个纪念吧,我们带着它去见毛主席。”大家将吃剩的半截皮带保存在挎包里,再没有一个人打它的主意。  后来,周广才的6位战友相继牺牲,只有他随红四方面军胜利到达了延安。为了缅怀牺牲的战友,铭记那段艰苦岁月,他用铁筷子在皮带背面烫上了“长征记”三个字,并用红绸子把皮带包好,压在了箱底……1975年,周广才将这珍藏了几十年的半截皮带捐赠给国家,后由中国革命博物馆(现中国国家博物馆)收藏。  在该集团军,“半截皮带”的故事在军营中代代传诵。纳入巡回宣讲,搬上银屏舞台,写进教材教案,融进文化氛围,官兵们在回顾红色经典、感悟红色传统中,坚定信仰信念,铸牢铁心跟党走的军魂。  集团军某红军团4连由周广才当年所在的红274团8连延续而来,连长余渊告诉记者,连队将“半截皮带”红色经典中所蕴含的铁心跟党、坚定不移、不畏险阻、坚韧不拔的精神,作为建连育人的生动教材,教育引导官兵做党的忠诚卫士,矢志不渝投身强军兴军的伟大事业。  时光荏苒,80载风雨征程,“半截皮带”传承的红色基因,赓续的红色血脉,始终没有改变。    这场以少胜多出奇制胜的经典战役,让酿出美酒的河水流淌红色记忆  赤水河边 倾听历史回响  郝迎灿 周俊南 向 婧 吴 凡  不管有没有到过赤水河,你一定都听过红军四渡赤水的故事。这场在党的历史上以少胜多、出奇制胜的经典战役,让能够酝酿出甘美茅台酒的赤水河,流淌着红色记忆,生生不息。都说四渡赤水出奇兵,到底奇在哪里?今天又演绎着怎样的精彩?  毛泽东“最得意之笔”的战役  刚刚走进位于习水县土城镇的四渡赤水纪念馆,解说员高红芳就让记者留意序厅浮雕墙上闪耀着的一句话――“四渡赤水才是我平生最得意之笔”。  说这句话的,正是“导演”了四渡赤水出奇兵的毛泽东。“1960年,当有人称赞毛泽东指挥辽沈、淮海、平津三大战役时,这位身经百战的老人摇了摇头,坚定地说:‘四渡赤水才是我平生最得意之笔’。”高红芳告诉记者。  1935年1月,红军攻占遵义后,蒋介石调集重兵进逼遵义地区,对红军形成铁桶般的重重包围。毛泽东等指挥中央红军采取灵活机动的战术,开始了著名的四渡赤水之战。  在通往土城、横跨赤水河的大桥上向右眺望,便会看到离河岸不远处有两块巨大的石头,表明了土城的浑溪口的所在地。1935年1月29日凌晨,中央红军从这里,以及蔡家沱、元厚等地一渡赤水河。  这“一渡”让受到国民党军队重兵堵截,在土城战斗中陷于被动的中央红军摆脱被动,改向云南扎西地区前进。  高红芳说:“国民党派重兵防守川黔边境并封锁长江。这时候,毛主席判断蒋军主力大部被红军吸引至此,黔北出现兵力空虚,红军可以出其不意打回去。”于是,红军随即放弃渡江,在2月中下旬从二郎滩、太平渡东渡赤水回到贵州,打响遵义战役,重占娄山关、遵义等地,取得长征以来最大的一次胜利。在离土城街上不远的淋滩村,就有一个二渡赤水的渡口。  一个月内两渡赤水,从红军这个“折返跑”中就可以看出毛泽东战术的机动灵活。  三渡赤水,调敌西进。3月16日至18日,中央红军以迅雷不及掩耳之势袭占了茅台镇,再次向川南古蔺、叙永前进,摆出北渡长江的姿态。  此时焦急的蒋介石,立即从云南调兵奔赴贵阳,不料又中了毛主席设下的圈套。正当国民党滇军东调施援时,红军却越过湘黔公路向西疾进,直插云南进入昆明,渡过金沙江,最终跳出敌人包围圈。  “索尔兹伯里在他的《长征――前所未闻的故事》提到:长征是无与伦比的,而‘四渡赤水’又是长征中最精彩绝伦的篇章。我想这是因为它谱写了中国工农红军战争史上以少胜多,以弱胜强,变被动为主动的光辉战例。”四渡赤水纪念馆副馆长李宛儒告诉记者。  茅台酒“洗脚”的传说  红军驻扎茅台镇期间,给后人留下了一个大大的悬疑。索尔兹伯里在他的《长征――前所未闻的故事》一书中这样写道:“当时,那些稚气未消的红军战士不知什么是茅台酒,他们涌入街道两侧的酿酒作坊,用茅台酒冲洗他们疲惫和打了泡的脚。”  “红军用茅台酒洗脚的传说究竟是真是假?”现任茅台集团名誉董事长季克良曾在接受媒体采访时说:“确有其事,但并非洗脚,而是用来疗伤。”  因为长途跋涉加上激战连连,不少红军脚上起了水泡,身上有伤。这时他们发现茅台镇的大街小巷都是售卖白酒的铺子,而白酒在民间一向有着消毒杀菌的作用,于是一些战士便买酒来擦脸、擦脚。因为茅台酒有舒筋活血、消炎去肿的功效,战士们的许多小伤得到了痊愈。  这一点在红军医院纪念馆所陈列的红军干部团上干队队长萧劲光的回忆片段中也有所体现。“我们在茅台驻扎了三天,我和一些同志去参观了一家酒厂。有很大的酒池,还有一排排的酒桶。我们品尝了这种名酒,芳香甘甜,沁人心肺,真是一种莫大的享受。有的同志还买了些用水壶装着,留在路上擦脚解乏。”  红色基因在赤水河畔延续  四渡赤水纪念馆、中国女红军纪念馆、红军医院纪念馆、毛泽东四渡赤水陈列室……如今在土城一带,四渡赤水纪念馆景区内,有着一个纪念馆群,包含了10多个国家级文保单位。这些都是红军当年在习水县境内转战60余天留下的红色印记和宝贵财富。  其中,四渡赤水纪念馆于2007年建成开馆,2009年免费开放,是全国爱国主义教育示范基地,全国青少年教育基地,国家国防教育示范基地等。馆名由中央军委原副主席张震将军题写。  在青杠坡战斗中,当时任红三军团四师十团营长的张震腿部负伤,在土城青杠坡村的永安寺疗伤。治好后,由当地群众抬着追赶上了大部队。明代修建的永安寺在当时还作为红军的野战医院,寺庙僧人积极协助红军医护人员救治了不少红军伤员。  当地至今还流传着一些老百姓救治红军的故事。例如,当年12岁的赵文斌,发现几名红军战士负伤后,躲进了他们家的柴房,他与父亲一起为红军战士换洗血迹斑斑的衣服,每天为红军战士送药送饭,红军战士伤愈后追赶上了部队。  淋滩村也曾经是红军集中疗养地。民主进步人士刘纯武在父亲刘春和及当地百姓的支持下,收留救助了近百名在青杠坡战斗中负伤掉队的红军伤病员。当时刘纯武是国民党区长,他以治安为由,严禁杀害红军,把红军伤员送到自己的老家,供给他们食宿,请人帮他们疗伤,资助他们回部队。  “为了让这一段段体现着红军和老百姓军民鱼水情的红色往事流传下去,我们通过各种手段把厚重的人文故事,打造成看得见、摸得着的文化载体,让历史不再是躺在纪念馆里,而是鲜活地走进群众中。同时,也使得我们土城的底色更加鲜艳。”李宛儒告诉记者。  43岁的肖永洪是纪念馆的一名保安,也是合唱团的成员。不只是他,馆内凡是会唱歌的保安、讲解员、厨师、保洁等工作人员都参加了这个艺术团。他们重新编排了《长征组歌》,平时在纪念馆内免费为游客演出。  “毫不夸张地说,现在在习水县,从老人到小孩对四渡赤水战役都有一定的了解。也不断有北京、上海、广东、新疆等地的党组织或个人来这里,开展党性教育,参加爱国主义教育等红色体验活动。”李宛儒说,今后,我们要把红色文化更好地宣扬出去,让红色血脉不断延续下去。    女排精神凝聚起振兴中华的热情  漳州基地 见证冠军足迹  本报记者 张 晔 钟自炜  2016年8月21日,里约奥运会,中国女排重回巅峰。荧屏里年轻的姑娘们呐喊、拥抱。  黄奇山也笑了。在福建漳州体育训练基地,身为副主任的他,笑容里有喜悦,有淡然,更有对远在里约的姑娘们的牵挂。  女排赢了,漳州这个南方小城,再次因女排吸引了世界的目光。上世纪80年代女排初露锋芒,外媒称此地为“秘密基地”;国家队每逢大赛前必回漳州集训,媒体亲切称之为“女排福地”;如今,几代中国女排人的赫赫战绩,更使它成为当之无愧的“冠军摇篮”。然而,在中国女排和基地人的心里,这里只有一个最贴切最温暖的名字――“娘家”。  44年,中国女排从这里走来,历经风雨,女排精神在这里酝酿传承,历久弥新。  滚上一身泥 磨去几层皮  女排精神源自“竹棚精神”  时间回到1972年10月,国家体委决定在漳州兴建第一座排球基地,此时,距离即将举行的第一届全国重点省市排球队集训时间已经不多了。  中国女排腾飞纪念馆里记录下这样的“奇迹”――时任漳州军分区司令员于克钊调集几万支毛竹和大批人手入漳,竹筒立柱搭梁,竹片加竹叶为顶盖,再覆盖一层油毛毡,地面以红土、石灰和沙子轧实夯平,一座可覆盖六个排球场地的“竹棚馆”,28天顺利落成。  12支男女排球队来到这里,其中就有日后名扬排坛的曹慧英、陈招娣、张蓉芳、孙晋芳等。他们白天摸爬滚打、轮番接球,晚上围着一个水龙头洗脸刷牙,凑在井台上打水洗衣。“三合土”一层层磨掉了,垫底的煤渣划破了队员的大腿、肘部,白色的排球上血迹斑斑。“滚上一身泥,磨去几层皮,苦练技战术,立志攀高峰”,原基地主任钟家琪说,在艰苦的条件下,正是中国排球创造的独一无二的“竹棚精神”,激励了整整一代排坛新人。  “女排精神,实际上就是解放军一不怕苦二不怕死的精神。”作为亲历者,钟家琪对女排一步步成长的历史记忆犹新:  意志怎么锻造?开门训练。队员们到驻军点,学习解放军的事迹;数万人次群众观摩训练,苦了累了,看着场下鼓励的眼神,一次次咬牙坚持。  水平怎么提高?练兵会战。各甲级队集合基地,每天训练时间至少7小时以上,一个集训季每队比赛常常在30场以上,各队风格流派五花八门,在竞争中得以博采众长。  1976年,中国女排在漳州基地重新组建,袁伟民教练从12支集训队伍中点出15位女将,穿上了久违的“中国”球衣。这次重组,没有仪式,没有影像,队员一水儿的新人,那时没有人知道,一颗世界排坛的新星将从这里冉冉升起。  国家队训练更苦了!任务完不成,坚决不下课;标准达不到,加码开小灶。周晓兰,杠铃训练结束如同水里捞出来一样,无意靠了一下墙壁,竟留下一片人形汗渍;郑美珠,为弥补身高劣势拼命训练,几次虚脱,连医生都怪她“连命也不顾”……在“从严、从难、从实”的要求下,一支意志顽强、水平过硬的队伍,登上世界舞台。  1981年,第三届世界杯女子排球赛,中国女排七战七捷,首次夺冠。在北京,人们涌向天安门广场,高呼“中国万岁,女排万岁”;在漳州,学生们敲打着牙缸、脸盆,或唱或喊,连暖水瓶都因此摔坏了好多;在基地,厨师班长严文忠,一口气买了二三十块钱的鞭炮,噼里啪啦燃放起来。  这一切只是开始。1982年,第九届世锦赛,1984年,第二十三届奥运会,1985年,第四届世界杯,1986年,第十届世锦赛,中国女排以“五连冠”的佳绩,在中国人“振兴三大球”的梦想中,写下傲人的一页。  “女排精神”成为一个时代的名片。钟家琪说:“女排精神就是‘竹棚精神’的延续”;长期从事女排报道的原《闽南日报》记者罗如岗说:“女排精神,离不开她们自强不息、爱国奉献”……在那个特殊年代,女排精神远远超越了竞技体育的范畴,凝聚起各行各业振兴中华的热情,也成为陪伴一代中国人成长的精神力量。  娘家人同甘苦 全力保障后勤  秘密基地的“秘密武器”  1981年,女排夺得第一个世界冠军之后,建立整整9年的漳州基地才渐为人知。外国教练、媒体记者实地探访时都会困惑:一个训练条件一般,甚至看来非常寒酸的基地,到底有什么“秘密武器”?  答案要从历史中寻找。1978年,钟家琪被调来执掌基地,而调动的原因,则是来解决“运动员不想吃饭”的问题。“我是有过运动员经历的,那么大的运动量,当然是不想吃饭的。”怎样让队员们“吃得满意”,成为钟家琪上任后的首先要解决的问题。  在一次次大胆试验下,第二年,基地首创的“自由餐”全面铺开――队员们无论何时结束训练,都有十几种热饭、鲜汤、盘菜可供挑选。  厨师班长严文忠,队员们训练时,时不时到场边围观,看看训练强度;队员吃饭时,拉拉家常,聊聊口味。渐渐地,他的心里就有了一本“女排食谱”:“周晓兰爱吃红烧猪蹄,袁伟民喜欢海鲜,曹慧英喜欢面食,郎平吃糖拌西红柿最开胃……”甚至学会了打“心理战”,队员们在“猜菜名”中,不知不觉,食欲大振。  用心之处不仅在食堂。钟家琪把最优秀的员工安排烧锅炉,“有了热水,才能有疲劳恢复的第一步”,基地职工与教练队员们早已熟悉得如同家人。  “娘家”,这声亲切的称呼,不仅凝聚着一代代女排姑娘们的深情,也是漳州基地时时刻刻对自己的“要求”。  1985年以前,中国女排的宿舍条件简陋。一天,郎平晚上去公共卫生间时被冻感冒,直至住院。钟家琪召集职工开会时说:“国家把这些宝贝交给我们,我们照顾不好,于心有愧啊!”经过讨论,职工们自愿把盖职工宿舍的钱捐出来建女排公寓,第二年,一座崭新的“冠军楼”拔地而起。  1992年,中国女排在巴塞罗那奥运会意外失利。罗如岗记得,消息传到漳州,正在召开的全市经济工作会议立即决定增加一项议题――怎样支持女排重振雄风?  当时,正在修建的训练比赛两用馆“腾飞馆”因资金不足陷入停滞,市里当即决定,号召“人均捐赠一元钱”,很快筹集了500万元,快马加鞭开工建设。  如今,新的训练比赛场馆、运动员大楼已经纳入基地的规划之中,一个崭新的漳州基地的面貌渐露雏形。然而,正如中国女排的代代传承,精神永续,无论基地如何变化,一颗“娘家人”的心永远在这里,守护女排,风雨前行。    焦裕禄的故事历久弥新,他所奉献的土地沧桑巨变  “焦桐”树下 回味兰考故事  本报记者 马跃峰  秋日的兰考,“焦桐”枝繁叶茂。东坝头边,九曲黄河甩出一个大弯,奔涌而去,涛声淋满鸟语花香的河滩。  回望1962年,展现在兰考县委书记焦裕禄面前的,却是另一番景象:横贯全境的两条黄河故道,是一眼看不到边的黄沙;片片内涝的洼窝里,结着青色的冰凌;白茫茫的盐碱地里,枯草在寒风中抖动。焦裕禄不畏困难,带领干部群众,战内涝,抗风沙,治盐碱,开启“敢教日月换新天”的征程。  兰考南站  见证誓言成真  “各位旅客,您乘坐的G1819次列车,就要开始检票了……”兰考南站,是郑徐高铁上的重要站点。5万平方米的广场大气恢弘。候车厅内,数百张枣红色的真皮座椅舒适大方。随工作人员的引导,乘车从兰考到郑州东站,仅需32分钟,比开汽车节省1个多小时。  兰考南站每天经停31趟高铁,直达上海约4小时,直达西安约2小时30分。9月15日中秋节,开通仅5天的兰考南站迎来一次考验。原本预计发送旅客1000人,结果当日发送旅客2000余人。  小小火车站,记录了兰考的变迁。54年前,焦裕禄到任兰考县委书记。第一天,他便前往火车站看望灾民。发出“苦战三五年,改变兰考面貌。不达目的,我们死不瞑目”的誓言。  焦裕禄以这样的决心和毅力,不惧病痛折磨,在兰考战天斗地,取得一个又一个胜利。几十年后,兰考与各大城市的距离并未变化,但她的发展,一日千里。在火车站这个节点上,我们看到――  乘客在变:50多年前的乘客衣衫褴褛,携老扶幼,坐着火车去要饭。现如今,乘客衣着时尚,走南闯北,旅游求学,探寻商机。  火车在变:50多年前的火车靠蒸汽机火车头拉动,经常晚点。如今,高铁领先世界,时速300多公里。  车站在变:50多年前的兰考火车站,饥民涌动,是城市苦难的见证。如今的兰考南站,将在广场周围建设公交站、长途汽车站、购物中心,成为重要的交通枢纽、商业中心。  东坝头  治理“三害” 身影犹在  黄河九曲十八弯,最后一弯在兰考县东坝头。这里呈“U”字形,地势险要,水势凶猛,历史上有29次决口。最近的一次是1932年农历六月二十一。有民谣流传:“六月二十一,打开南北堤,先淹考城县,再淹小宋集……”  上世纪60年代,黄河在兰考大地留下纵横交错的河道和洼地,遇旱风沙肆虐,遇涝积水成灾。1963年,焦裕禄带领兰考人民挖河、修闸、除涝、清淤,进行水患治理,直到1964年焦裕禄去世,工作仍在继续。  黄河涛声依旧,兰考人通过治理“三害”,早已将东坝头黄河湾变成一个旅游景区。  驱车前往东坝头,黑色的柏油路平稳坚实,行道树木郁郁葱葱,越靠近黄河,绿色越发浓厚。黄河岸边停泊着几艘船只,经营兰考的特色美味。大堤上,村民正在售卖淘米用的“筲箕”。毛主席视察黄河纪念亭边,不少游客拍照留念。远处,几辆玉米收割机正驶过黄河浮桥,轰隆隆的声音带着丰收的喜悦。昔日的黄河故道,换了容颜。  一片“焦桐”  种出一项富民产业  走进焦裕禄同志纪念馆,他生前使用过的一些工具至今保存完好。一根探水用的秸秆,无数次测量洪水的深度;一把锄头,伴随焦裕禄与乡亲们一起挖沟、种泡桐。  焦裕禄在兰考工作期间,带领群众用“农桐间作”的模式治理风沙,成效不凡。随后,兰考成为闻名全国的泡桐之乡。在兰考县城,焦裕禄亲手种植的一棵泡桐已长成两人合抱的参天大树,被人亲切地称为“焦桐”。  今日兰考的田间地头、房前屋后、坝头堤岸,随处可见泡桐的矫健身姿。泡桐在改变兰考县生态的同时,成为制作乐器的最佳原料。它不易变形、脱脂后透音性好,被誉为“会呼吸的木材”。  徐场村,以泡桐发家致富,成为远近闻名的“乐器村”。上世纪90年代开始,徐场村因加工古琴而出名。全村600多口人,40多户拥有古琴作坊,年产古筝、古琴、琵琶等乐器20多个系列5万余件。据统计,近年来兰考利用当地良好的桐木资源,开发生产古筝、琵琶、古琴、二胡等20多个品种的民族乐器,年产民族乐器40多万件,年产值15亿元。国内古筝、古琴、琵琶的音板80%来自兰考。  在新的扶贫攻坚战中,兰考陆续引进恒大、富士康等产业巨头,建设家具产业联盟和富士康产业园。乡亲们脱贫致富的梦想,正在一步步变成现实。  “干部十不准”  廉政声音回荡在大地  站在兰考的大街上,裕禄大道、焦桐路等名字,彰显着焦裕禄同志与这座城市的血肉联系。焦裕禄同志的陵墓,让人肃然起敬;纪念馆内,老旧的藤椅令人动容,仿佛一直在讲述焦裕禄的过往。  焦裕禄不准孩子“看白戏”的故事,让人印象深刻:有一次,焦裕禄的孩子看戏时,告诉检票员“焦书记是我爸爸”,没有买票就进去了。焦裕禄得知后非常生气,当即把一家人叫来“训”了一顿,命令孩子立即把票钱如数送给戏院。  接着,焦裕禄又建议县委起草了《干部十不准》的通知:(一)不准用国家或集体的粮款大吃大喝,请客送礼。(二)不准参加封建迷信活动。(三)不准赌博。(四)不准挥霍浪费粮食,用粮食做酒做糖。(五)不准用集体粮款或向社员摊派粮款演戏、演电影。谁看戏谁拿钱,谁吃饭谁拿粮。(六)业余剧团只能在本乡、本队演出,不准借春节演出为名,大买服装、道具,铺张浪费。(七)各机关、学校、企业单位的党员干部,都要以身作则,勤俭过年,一律不准请客送礼;不准拿国家物资到生产队换取农、副产品;不准用公款组织晚会;不准送戏票;礼堂10排以前的戏票不能光卖给国家机关干部,要按先后顺序卖票;一律不准到商业部门要特殊照顾。(八)不准利用职权到生产队或其他部门索取物资。(九)积极搞好集体的副业生产,增加收入,改善生活,不准弃农经商,不准投机倒把。(十)不准借春节之机,大办喜事,祝寿吃喜,大放鞭炮,挥霍浪费。  当时,兰考连年受灾,有少数干部提出改善县委机关办公条件的想法。对此,焦裕禄提出了严厉批评:“干部不领,水牛掉井。灾区面貌没有改变,群众生活还很困难,富丽堂皇的事,不但不能做,就是有这种想法也是很危险的。”  如今,焦裕禄同志纪念馆内,“干部十不准”镌刻在墙上,供后人学习和瞻仰。兰考礼堂定期免费举办讲座、文艺演出、非物质文化展演等活动,已成为兰考践行“干部十不准”的重要载体。  在这里,座位先来后到,不搞任何特殊。政府活动在这里举行,普通群众可以随时参与,听一听、评一评。这不仅拉近了党委政府与老百姓的距离,也敦促相关部门认真作为,主动接受群众监督。    本版制图:蔡华伟   《 人民日报 》( 2016年10月01日 06 版) (责编:白宇)相关的主题文章: 2016中国国際バイクボート公開試合:世界的な世界的な選手が参加-中新ネット-sayu-02 Riley a

As the state elite and their academic cheering crew celebrate our progressive boom, even the most skilled, unionized construction workers, notes an upcoming study, cannot afford to live anywhere close to the state’s major job centers.

In fact, notes the study, soon to be published by Chapman University, not a single unionized construction worker can afford a median-priced house in any of the major coastal counties, including Orange, Los Angeles, San Mateo, San Francisco, Santa Clara, San Diego, Alameda, Sonoma and Napa. Even with incomes averaging over $73,000 annually, notes author and economist Dr. John Husing, most can afford median-priced homes only in the further reaches of the Central Valley or the Inland Empire, requiring huge commutes.

This gap between blue collar and professional and entrepreneurial wages is even greater among the majority of construction workers who are not unionized. Husing suggests that most of these workers could only afford the cheapest starter house in the furthest reaches of exurbia and beyond.

California’s growth model

For many progressives and futurists, California’s growth model represents a beacon to a prosperous future. It’s repeatedly pointed out that California is now the world’s fifth-largest economy, largely the product of massive wealth concentrated in the Silicon Valley giants, as well as a much stronger dollar versus the pound and Euro, and sub-par growth throughout Europe.

To be sure, California came out of the recession with a robust recovery, paced by increased property values, a soaring stock market and, critically, huge growth in the Bay Area, which represents roughly 17 percent of the state’s population. Yet overall, California’s post-recession growth, according to the BLS, is now only marginally above the national average, and in many regions, notably Southern California, somewhat below. The contrast is greatest with our strongest rivals: California is now growing jobs at a rate 50 percent or more below the rate of Texas, Arizona and Nevada.

Even in the Bay Area, growth is slowing, particularly in the San Francisco-Oakland area where job growth has plummeted from nearly 5 percent in 2015 to less than 2 percent last year. The bulk of the job growth there now is at the low and high ends, leaving little in the middle. Nearly half of millennials in the Bay Area, according to a recent survey, plan to leave; since 2012 millennial outmigration from Los Angeles, as a new Brookings study reveals, lags only metro New York in exporting its youthful workers.

Future threats to the working class

The California economic model is based largely on income and capital gains accruing to a relatively small part of the population, one reason the state ranks second in inequality to New York, and is becoming ever more unequal. To be sure, the new wealth has driven housing demand, largely for expensive new homes and apartments, but overall construction employment remains considerably below its 2007 levels. Growth in the sector has actually fallen from 2013, and now lags well behind the rate enjoyed in Nevada, Arizona, Florida and Texas.

Other key blue collar sectors such as manufacturing have also under-performed national average. The sector is now growing at one quarter the national rate, a shortfall exacerbated by state climate policies that have increased both energy costs and imposed ever more rigid regulatory burdens that encourage producers to move to other locales.

How sustainable is the “California Model”?

If the rest of the country wants to adopt the “California model,” it should be aware of what this means for the middle and working classes. The likely further acceleration of our state’s tougher climate regulation polices, as well as the prospect of more taxes on things like soda, guns and tires may please our green gentry and the oligarchs, but inevitably will hurt job prospects and raise the cost of living for most California workers.

Pushing our construction workers to the far fringes, particularly as state policy seeks to concentrate employment in expensive core cities, makes it less likely that new workers will enter the labor pool necessary to address our housing shortage. With residential sales dropping across the state, and California’s rate of new housing permits per new resident roughly half the national average, the prospects facing construction workers may be dimmer than necessary.

State measures to encourage the creation of subsidized housing could help some, but in reality would make only a tiny dent in the problem. Increasingly the political class focuses not on expanding the land for development, or bringing jobs to the more affordable interior, but on mandating subsidies, set-asides and rent control. Some, including certain oligarchs, suggest offering regular cash outlays so working people can subsist but never enter the property-owning classes.

Having sought accommodation with the green, anti-suburban regulators, both developers and labor need to recognize that it’s time to challenge a policy agenda harmful to the prospects both of business and most working Californians. Rather than doubling down on policies that reinforce our state’s descent into feudalism, we need to forge a new agenda that encourages instead broad economic growth and greater opportunity.

          New Report: Plane crashed into Trinity Bay at 500 mph, NTSB says      Cache   Translate Page      

New details were released Tuesday, shedding light on last month's deadly cargo plane crash in Trinity Bay.

On Feb. 23 about 12:40 p.m., a Boeing 767 that had left from Miami crashed in Anahuac, about 40 miles southeast of its destination, George Bush Intercontinental Airport. All three people on board were killed. The bodies of Capt. Sean Archuleta and pilot Conrad Aska, of Miami, were recovered shortly after the crash. Human remains believed to be pilot Ricky Blakely, of Madison, Indiana, were also found.

Archuleta was catching a ride to Houston. He was scheduled to fly another aircraft upon his arrival, according to Mesa Airlines.

A new NTSB report was released Tuesday that says the plane descended from 6,000 feet at nearly 500 mph before crashing.

The pilots on board had 16,000 hours of combined flight experience.

"Both of them were qualified pilots. Both of them had commercial experience in commercial air crafts. They were type rated in commercial air crafts. Their experience was good," said Josh Verde, a former pilot and aviation instructor with more than 20 years of experience under his belt.

The cargo plane, which was contracted by Amazon, was 27 years old, the NTSB said. The plane had flown more than 91,000 hours.

The report also said that flight data indicated that the plane entered turbulence.

The final probable cause report is expected to be released in 2020.

Officials said the debris field was oriented east to west and was about 350 yards long by about 200 yards wide. An engine and some landing gear components were found beyond the main debris field.

Most of the cargo and less dense wreckage components floated south and were found up to 20 miles away, the report said.

The report said the flight was normal for Miami to the Houston terminal area. The pilots contacted the arrival controller about 12:30 p.m. About five minutes later, the controller asked the pilots if they wanted to detour in order to avoid light to heavy precipitation along their flight route.

"Based on what we do know about the weather in the area at the time, nothing stands out to me as being so significant as to cause this level of a loss of control of a plane that size," Verde said.

PHOTOS: Debris from deadly cargo plane crash

About 12:37 p.m., the controller directed the pilots around the weather, and about a minute later, he told them they would clear the weather in about 18 miles. The pilots responded, "Sounds good" and "OK," the report said. Around this time is when the report says the plane entered turbulence.

About this time, the report says the plane pitch increased to about 4 degrees nose up before pitching nose down at about a 49-degree angle for the next 18 seconds. The stall warning did not activate, the report says.

Data indicates the plane entered a rapid descent and reached an airspeed of about 430 knots. This situation had aviation professionals like Verde concerned that something went wrong.

"I can't think of a normal situation at that altitude that a pilot would go to maximum thrust at that altitude," Verde said. "The level of experience here is good. I think these are qualified pilots and, with that in mind, it was confusing to read the engines were increased to maximum thrust and that the aircraft was pitched nose down."

Verde said it raised some major questions.

A security camera recorded the airplane in a steep descent until impact.

"What caused the nose down deflector? Was it a column input or was it an autopilot servo issue?" Verde said.

Whether it be an autopilot issue or an issue with the pilot himself, Verde said more can likely be understood once the cockpit voice recorder transcripts are released.

"Once we have a chance to review the cockpit voice recorder, we can hear what happened in the cockpit. Perhaps we can get a few more questions answered about the flight itself by the NTSB. We'll have a clearer picture," Verde said.

A cockpit voice recorder group was convened and will complete a transcript of the entire crash. The transcript will be released when the public docket is opened.

          Calf scramble winner dedicates stall to military      Cache   Translate Page      

Every year, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo offers young people the chance to shine in livestock competitions.

Madison "Maddie" Towery, a senior at Klein Collins High School, is using her opportunity at the Calf Scramble Exhibit to put the spotlight on others, U.S. troops.

"I've always had a big place in my heart for the service members, because it's a big sacrifice and it's a big thing to do," Towery said. "We always have to come back to the people who make it possible for us to do everything, and that's our service members."

Towery won the calf scramble and used the $1,750 she won to buy a calf.

She spends hours every week taking care of Semper, who was named after the Marine Corps motto, "Semper Fi."

The high school senior dedicated the stall Semper is in to the military.

"I have my little box that says please take one and place it somewhere that will remind you to pray for the men and women serving our country," Towery said about the box of little green soldiers she has.

She passes them out to people and asks them to place the little soldiers in a spot that will remind them to pray and think about our troops.

Towery is so passionate about the military, she enlisted in the Marine Corps, and will start serving after she graduates this summer.

"I feel like college isn't the place for me, but I always wanted to do something better than myself and something, bigger than me and I've always put myself towards helping other people and I feel like that's my job," Towery said.

Her display is located at Row E Stall 1753 at NRG Park.


          Houston Texans sign safety Tashaun Gipson      Cache   Translate Page      

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


          Police identify woman's beaten body, person of interest      Cache   Translate Page      

Houston police have identified a woman's beaten body that was found in a southeast Houston field last week.

Authorities have also identified a person of interest, who remains at large.

The body of Angel Mario Peckham, 21, was found Friday near the corner of Sandy Hook and Binghampton drives.

About an hour before her body was found, a caller told police a female friend was inside an apartment in the 3900 block of Arlington Square Street and appeared to be dead, authorities said.

Investigators found nothing inside the apartment, but they are now looking for the man who leases the unit. Police towed away a white SUV that they said belongs to the man for whom they are looking.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the Houston Police Department's Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).


          Astros pitcher Francis Martes suspended 80 games for positive PED test      Cache   Translate Page      

Injured Houston Astros pitcher Francis Martes has been suspended for 80 games following a positive test for the banned performance-enhancing drug Clomiphene.

The anti-estrogen substance is used in fertility treatments and is employed by men to accelerate testosterone production. It is taken along with steroids to inhibit estrogen problems.

Houston says in a statement "we hope that Francis can learn from this experience and that he returns to have a successful career."

A 23-year-old right-hander, Martes was considered the Astros' top prospect entering 2017 and made his major league debut that June. He was 5-2 with a 5.80 ERA in four starts and 28 relief appearances for the Astros, striking out 69 and walking 31 in 54 1/3 innings.

He made four starts last April for Triple-A Fresno, hurt his elbow, and made a one-inning injury rehabilitation appearance for the Gulf Coast Astros on Aug. 2. He had Tommy John surgery on Aug. 15 and was expected to miss most or all of this season.

Martes' suspension, announced Tuesday, was the second this year under the major league drug program after Kansas City pitcher Eric Skoglund. Nine players have been suspended this year under the minor league program.


          Texas lawmakers hear testimony on proposed child care law      Cache   Translate Page      

Testimony was at times emotional Tuesday during a House Human Services Committee hearing in Austin as lawmakers heard differing opinions on a proposed law that would require child care facilities to install cameras.

The bill was filed by state Rep. Ana Hernandez, D-Dist. 143, following the 2016 death of a 2-month-old boy at a Houston-area day care.

"I think we all agree today the safety of these children is everyone's priority," Hernandez told the committee.

House Bill 459 would not only require licensed child care facilities to install cameras in every portion of a facility where children are cared for, but would also require the facilities to keep video and audio recordings for three months. Shawna Diaz has been pushing for this type of legislation since her son, Shane, died at Bibs and Cribs day care in 2016. Her son was found unresponsive after being put down for a nap.

Shane's death was at first ruled a case of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS, and the facility was initially cleared of any wrongdoing. Diaz refused to accept that answer and hired Houston attorney Joe Alexander. A year after her son died, Alexander said the truth finally came out during depositions. The facility's owner and mother initially told police and state child care investigators Shane was placed to sleep on his back and was being supervised. During the depositions, the women gave conflicting answers as to who was supervising Shane at the time he stopped breathing and admitted the infant had been placed to sleep on his stomach, a violation of state rules.

Both the Department of Family and Protective Services and the Harris County Sheriff's Office reopened the investigations into Shane's death. The facility eventually closed its doors and was hit with a long list of state violations. Diaz said her long search for the truth could have been avoided had the facility's cameras been turned on and recording the day her son died. Diaz said the cameras would have captured how Shane was put to sleep and who was watching him during his nap.

"No one is here defending the kids that are being neglected and abused," Diaz said during her testimony.

Other mothers of children who died or were injured at child care facilities support the bill.

"He was lying in urine and vomit face down in the crib," Casey Jones testified was the condition she found her son while he was being cared at the same facility where Shane died.

Dikeisha Whitlock-Pryer, whose son died after being left in a hot day care van, also testified during the hearing.

"It should be mandatory that day care facilities have videos," said Whitlock-Pryer.

However, some child care facility owners expressed concerns the bill was overly intrusive in requiring cameras to be in every part of a facility, as well as the cost of having systems that can store audio and video for 90 days.

Lonnie Hutson, with Kids R' Kids, told the committee he supports cameras in child care facilities, but the language of the bill should be narrowed in exactly where cameras would be required. Hutson also suggested trimming the 90-day storage requirement to seven days to help ease the financial burden on private businesses.

"That kind of language needs to be changed in here," Hutson said.

Others argued cameras won't prevent a worker from not following the rules already in place to protect children. The executive director of the Texas Private Schools Association, Laura Colangelo, said the schools under her purview already far exceed minimum requirements set by the state.

"Installing intrusive cameras in every corner of every classroom is not going to help us continue with that mission," Colangelo said.

However, Diaz argued cameras would act as a deterrent to neglectful behavior.

"When you know you're being recorded, you're going to be doing what you're supposed to be doing," Diaz said.

Alexander also testified and used a convenience store where he bought coffee as a comparison for why this bill needed to pass.

"Twenty-seven cameras in that convenience store to protect the inventory of cigarettes, beer and candy bars. If that sort of inventory is worth protecting, certainly our children are," Alexander said.

The measure was left pending in committee and Hernandez said she is working to address any concerns child care workers may have about her bill.


          'We're going to come get you': Parole violator initiative getting results      Cache   Translate Page      

Houston police teamed up with several agencies across the region for a two-week crackdown of parole violators.

Houston Police Department Chief Art Acevedo said 156 felons were picked up on parole violations. He said it's a huge step in protecting the public from violent offenders.

"We're going after people who are felony suspects that are hurting people and really committing more serious crimes. We're hoping to save lives and reduce risk," Acevedo said.

Acevedo said the Police Department teamed up with the Harris County Sheriff's Office and several other police agencies, including Liberty, Galveston and Waller counties.

For two weeks, they tracked down and located parole violators, who are some of the worst offenders. All of them had been convicted of felonies, including murder, theft and sexual assault.

"Our No. 1 priority is: The ones on the ankle monitors tend to be the ones that are more violent and pose the greatest threat," Acevedo said.

Officials said this kind of hard work keeps residents safe. Last year, a man on parole, Jose Rodriguez, cut off his ankle monitor and went on a killing spree, killing three people in a matter of days. Officials said cracking down on parole violators cracks down on crime.

"The parolee that's wanted in one county is here on a weekend committing crimes. The next day, they're in Galveston committing crimes. The next day, they are somewhere else committing crimes. That's why we're all working together," Acevedo said.

"We're committed to making our community safer. Abide by it or we're going to come and get you instead of them. You know you're wanted, turn yourself in," Chief Kurt Bonsal, with the Precinct 3 Constable's Office, said.

So far, more than 300 parole violators have been taken into custody in the last three months.

The crackdown is set to continue every four months.

Venezuelan officials reported blackouts easing in some areas Tuesday, while the chief prosecutor said opposition leader Juan Guaido is being investigated for allegedly sabotaging the national power grid, whose collapse last week has inflicted misery on millions.   The announcement by Tarek William Saab, the attorney general, escalated the Venezuelan government's standoff with Guaido, although there are questions about how aggressively authorities would move against a man who is staunchly supported by the United States as well as many Venezuelans.   Guaido, who is trying to oust President Nicolas Maduro and hold elections, blames corruption and incompetence for nearly a week of nationwide blackouts that deprived most of the already struggling population not just of electricity, but also water and communications.   Adding to tension over Venezuela's fate, the United States said it was withdrawing its last diplomats still in Caracas. The U.S. State Department also said U.S. citizens residing or traveling in Venezuela should leave the country, a heightening of an advisory issued Jan. 29 that said they should ``strongly consider'' doing so.   "Bye-bye," Maduro said on national television after praising the professional conduct of James Story, the top-ranking diplomat at the U.S. Embassy. Maduro also said he would seek the help of allies Cuba, Russia, China and Iran in investigating his allegation a U.S. "cyberattack#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000" targeted Venezuelan power facilities, which he claimed was launched from Houston and Chicago. The U.S. has dismissed the Venezuelan government's accusation as absurd and an attempt to divert attention from its own chronic failings.   Venezuela's information minister, Jorge Rodriguez, said the power grid had been almost completely restored and that water service was also returning. However, anecdotal reports indicated continuing outages for many Venezuelans, who were already suffering from hyperinflation and shortages of food and medicine.   On Tuesday, long lines of people converged again at springs in the mountains of Caracas to collect water in bottles because water pumps have been out of service without power. Even some relatives of Maduro couldn't stand the power outages, according to authorities in Colombia.   The leader's cousin, Argimiro Maduro, along with his spouse, children and extended relatives, tried to enter the neighboring country, seeking relief until power is restored in Venezuela, said Christian Kruger, Colombia's migration director.   Permission was denied. Colombia, which views Maduro as an illegitimate leader and recognizes Guaido as Venezuela's interim president, will not allow Maduro's relatives to vacation while "avoiding the reality of a people in agony," Kruger said.   Maduro did not comment on the report that his family members tried to enter Colombia, though he has said he has been suffering alongside Venezuelans during the blackout.   One of the areas hit hardest by the power cuts that started Thursday evening is the city of Maracaibo, where widespread looting has occurred since Sunday. On Tuesday, areas of the city still had no power and debris lay in some streets. Hundreds of people looted nearly half the 270 shops in Maracaibo's Sambil mall, even dismantling doors and windows and taking them away, said Juan Carlos Koch, the mall's general manager. Saab, the chief prosecutor, said the case against Guaido also involves messages allegedly inciting people to rob and loot during power outages.   Guaido is already under investigation for alleged instigation of violence, but authorities have not tried to detain him since he violated a ban on leaving the country and then returned a week ago from a Latin American tour. He said at a Caracas demonstration Tuesday that allegations that he sabotaged the power grid are false.   "The whole world knows who the saboteur is. Maduro is responsible," said Guaido, who has accused the government of negligence and looting state resources for years.   Authorities also detained a Venezuelan journalist and activist and confiscated computers and cellphones from his home, human rights activists said. The arrest of Luis Carlos Diaz after he left Union Radio station Monday followed an accusation by a pro-government leader that he caused Venezuela's blackouts, Human Rights Watch said.   Michelle Bachelet, the U.N high commissioner for human rights, said that she is concerned about Diaz and that a U.N. mission visiting Caracas asked authorities for access to him.   News of the withdrawal of the last U.S. diplomats came from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who tweeted late Monday that the continued presence of the envoys in Caracas had become a "constraint" on U.S. policy. He did not clarify exactly what he meant by that remark.   U.S. President Donald Trump has said "all options are on the table" in his administration's support for Guaido. Maduro accuses Guaido and the United States of plotting an invasion.   The Venezuelan government disputed Pompeo's account, saying it had instructed the U.S. diplomats to leave. Their presence "entails risks for the peace, integrity and stability of the country," Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza said.   Maduro's government in January cut ties with the U.S. over its recognition of Guaido as Venezuela's rightful leader, a stand taken by about 50 other countries. U.S. officials rejected that, saying Maduro had no authority. Venezuela later allowed a skeletal staff to remain at the hilltop U.S. Embassy.

          Catholic university to review Rosica work for plagiarism      Cache   Translate Page      

Toronto, Canada, Mar 11, 2019 / 05:05 pm (CNA).- A Catholic university in Ontario, Canada, says it will review any published work by its former president and vice-chancellor, Fr. Thomas Rosica, C.S.B.

“In so far as Fr. Rosica has admitted that his published work has included unattributed material originally published by others, it is possible that what he published as President contained similar material. We will endeavour to determine if this is the case,” Richard Corneil, president of Assumption University in Windsor, Ontario, told the Windsor Star March 8.

Rosica served as president and vice-chancellor of the university from 2011-2015. In recent weeks, the priest has come under fire amid revelations of extensive plagiarism in his published articles, books, and speeches.

The priest, a long-serving English language press aide at the Vatican Press Office, and the CEO of Canada’s Salt+Light Television network, was reported by Life Site News Feb. 15 to have plagiarized sections of text in several lectures and op-eds from a variety of writers, among them priests, theologians, journalists, and at least two cardinals.

The priest apologized for plagiarism on Feb. 22, shortly after initial reports emerged.

“What I’ve done is wrong, and I am sorry about that. I don’t know how else to say it,” Rosica told the National Post.

“I realize I relied too much on compiled notes,” Rosica told the National Post, adding that his plagiarism was inadvertent and not malicious. He explained that “it could have been cut and paste,” apparently meaning that he had mistakenly included passages of text written by others in his texts without remembering to attribute them.

“I realize the seriousness of this and I regret this very much … I will be very vigilant in future,” he said.

Subsequent reports found widespread plagiarism in essays, speeches, and op-eds by Rosica, dating back more than a decade.

In late February, evidence emerged on Twitter that Rosica had also copied directly and without attribution the work of several theologians in a 1994 article he published in the theological journal “Worship.”

Liturgical Press, which publishes the journal, announced Feb. 26 "that the editors of Worship are retracting the [1994] article by Thomas M. Rosica because of plagiarism."

Liturgical Press subsequently retracted two additional articles published by the priest.

The 1994 article covers the same topic as Rosica’s 1990 licentiate thesis at the Pontifical Biblical Institute, leading some to raise questions about whether that text, through which the priest earned a pontifical degree in scripture, might also have been plagiarized.

Last week, the priest was discovered to have misrepresented his studies at the Ecole Biblique et Archéologique Française de Jérusalem. While he had claimed to have a degree from graduate school, its director told journalists that while Rosica had been enrolled there, he had not earned a degree of any kind.

On Feb. 24, Rosica resigned from the Collegium, or governing board, of the University of St. Michael’s College in Toronto, and the governing boards of St. John Fisher College in New York and the University of St. Thomas in Houston.

On Feb. 25, Rosica acknowledged to The Catholic Register that he had plagiarized. “We know that plagiarism is wrong, especially when it is practised deliberately. Please note that my actions were never deliberate. Nevertheless they were wrong,”

While the board of directors at the the Salt and Light Media Foundation has acknowledged that Rosica’s plagiarism was wrong, board chairman Tony Gagliano said in a March 7 statement that board members “unanimously pledge our support of the continued leadership of Fr. Rosica as Chief Executive Officer.”

“For the past 16 years, Fr. Thomas Rosica has worked consistently with young adults on many media platforms and in multiple languages to offer experiences of unity, prayer, celebration, reflection, education, dialogue, thought-provoking reporting and stories of faith and action. This work must continue,” the board statement said.

The Knights of Columbus, financial supporters of Salt+Light, have told reporters that they will review and reevaluate their relationship with the media network.

 

 


          Immigrants who saw their court dates cancelled by Trump's shutdown continue to wait in limbo      Cache   Translate Page      

Donald Trump’s shutdown over his racist campaign chant also shut down immigration courts for most immigrants, resulting in anywhere from 50,000 to 95,000 cases getting canceled. Many of these people, attorneys tell CBS News, are seeking asylum and are depending on the court for this life-saving protection. They now have no idea when they’ll see their case back on the calendar:

For the immigrants with cancelled hearings, getting back in front of a judge could take years. At the Newark, New Jersey immigration court, some cancelled hearings have been penciled in as far back as August 2021, said Alan Pollack, an immigration attorney in New Jersey, in an interview with CBS News. In Houston, the immigration court begun issuing dates in 2022, said Ruby Powers, an immigration attorney.

Unable to go in front of a judge, one man facing a deportation order in a case that had already been closed went into sanctuary rather than risk being arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (notice they continued their jobs uninterrupted, eyeroll). “There are no judges to decide that motion to reopen,” Miguel Ramirez Valiente’s attorney said at the time. “There is no office of chief council to speak with about the case. We are basically in legal limbo, waiting for the government to reopen.”

The government is now back open, but the already overloaded immigration court system is  struggling to catch up. "It is ironic that this administration's obsession with building a wall only increased the number of immigrants in limbo, aggravating an already serious crisis," said New York Rep. Jose Serrano, who chaired a recent hearing on the issue. "There needs to be a serious effort to reschedule these hearings quickly.”

Depois de muitas horas viajando (o meu voo foi horrível), cá estou!
A volta pros EUA me rendeu um resfriado forte e muito cansaço. Primeiro que precisei mudar de assento no avião porque tinha uma mãe com uma bebê fofa sentada ao meu lado e pra não deixar a coitadinha resfriada também, a aeromoça me pediu pra que eu sentasse na poltrona de tras. Foi até melhor porque fiquei "isolada", ninguém sentou- se ao meu lado e eu pude ficar mais confortável.
Chegando no aeroporto de Houston no Texas, o avião de conexão quebrou antes de embarcar (claro, né?, haha...senão as probabilidades dessa pessoa que vos escreve de estar viva eram minimas, haha), então cheguei com 2 horas de atraso em Boston! Cheguei não escutando nadinha porque meu ouvido zicou total! Foi ficar bom só no outro dia!

Venerdì 15 marzo 2019, ore 20.00
Domenica 17 marzo 2019_03_17, ore 16.00
Auditorium di Milano, largo Mahler
Stagione Sinfonica 2018/2019
Nel segno della magia e del fantastico 
Tre racconti musicali con Jader Bignamini
Paul Dukas "L'apprendista stregone", Poema sinfonico
Igor Stravinskij "Petruška" (versione 1947)
Nikolaj Rimskij-Korsakov "Shéhérazade" op. 35

Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi
Violino Nicolai Freiherr von Dellingshausen
Direttore Jader Bignamini

L’apprendista stregone, Petruška e Shéhérazade: tre personaggi che hanno ispirato tre grandi compositori per altrettanti racconti musicali. A condurre questo programma all’insegna della fantasia sarà Jader Bignamini, direttore residente dell’Orchestra Verdi che venerdì 15 marzo (ore 20.00) e domenica 17 marzo (ore 16.00) torna sul podio dell’Auditorium di largo Mahler dopo una serie di importanti impegni che lo hanno visto protagonista della ribalta internazionale: dal debutto alla Staatsoper di Vienna con Madama Butterfly a La Forza del Destino diretta a Francoforte; dal  Festival di Santa Fé, al Teatro Massimo di Palermo, dalla Dallas Symphony Orchestra alla Houston Symphony Orchestra. Ma i concerti con l’Orchestra Verdi hanno sempre il sapore di un “ritorno a casa”: qui infatti il Maestro ha debuttato ventun’ anni fa come primo clarinetto con un percorso che lo ha visto passare dalle file dell’orchestra al podio. Per questo doppio appuntamento il Maestro propone insieme all’Orchestra Verdi di cui oggi è direttore residente, tre fiabe musicali capaci, con la loro forza evocativa, di risvegliare l’immaginazione del pubblico di ogni età. Si comincia con l’”Apprendista stregone”, poema sinfonico di Paul Dukas ispirato da una ballata di Goethe, alla cui notorietà ha contribuito anche il film Fantasia di Walt Disney; si prosegue con la suite "Petruška" il personaggio russo del teatrino delle marionette protagonista del balletto omonimo composto da Igor Stravinskjii  per concludere con la suite "Shéhérazade" di Nikolaj Rimskij-Korsakov, influenzato dall’atmosfera esotica di “Le mille e una notte”, in cui il personaggio della principessa è interpretato dal violino, qui affidato a  Nicolai Freiherr von Dellingshausen, prima parte dell’Orchestra sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi.

Note al Programma

Paul Dukas (1865 -1935) "L'apprendista stregone", Poema sinfonico
Eseguito la prima volta il 18 maggio 1897 a Parigi, diretto dallo stesso Paul Dukas, L’Apprenti sorcier si ispira a una ballata di Goethe (Der Zauberlehrling. 1707) il quale, a sua volta, si era rifatto a un dialogo dello scrittore greco Luciano (II sec d.C.). La storia è quella di un apprendista stregone che approfitta dell’assenza del maestro per animare con una formula magica una scopa perché riordini la bottega al posto suo. Ma a un certo punto la situazione gli sfugge di mano, l’attrezzo è così zelante da mettere tutto a soqquadro e l’apprendista non riesce a fermarla perché ha dimenticato la formula giusta. L’acqua minaccia ormai di allagare il laboratorio quando lo stregone ritorna, giusto in tempo per evitare la catastrofe.
Il compositore francese, grande ammiratore di Wagner e Debussy,  è considerato uno dei compositori più perfezionisti della storia, ipercritico nei confronti delle sue opere, capace, in un’intera vita di lavoro, di licenziare solo una dozzina di partiture, distruggendone, pare, molte altre che non riteneva all’altezza. D’altronde Dukas era anche un critico musicale. Insegnò a lungo al Conservatorio di Parigi, prima insegnando orchestrazione e poi, dal 1928, composizione (il suo migliore allievo fu senz’altro Olivier Messiaen). La sua musica, più legata all’eredità wagneriana e segnata da un suono sontuoso e lussureggiante come la musica russa di fine Ottocento, lo fece considerare un autore lontano dal nuovo clima musicale creato da Debussy, Stravinskij, Schönberg, Bartók dei quali era buon amico. La composizione è strutturata secondo lo schema classico della forma-sonata e si avvale delle movenze dello scherzo, che si riferisce allo spirito del brano, in quanto la forma è quella tipica del poema sinfonico di Liszt.
L’apprendista stregone, del 1897, è senza dubbio il suo brano più celebre inserito nell'episodio più famoso (con Topolino come protagonista) del film d'animazione Fantasia, prodotto da Walt Disney nel 1940, e, per la cronaca, detiene il primato di esser stato il primo lavoro con destinazione cinematografica inciso in stereofonia (Stokowski, il celebre direttore che firmò la colonna sonora del film, lo registrò con alcune sovraincisioni, per ottenere l’effetto, all’epoca pionieristico).

Igor Stravinskij "Petruška" (versione 1947)
L’opera si ispira a una storia della tradizione russa popolare. Durante la settimana grassa nella piazza dell’Ammiragliato a Pietroburgo, arriva un teatrino di marionette.  Lo spettacolo ha per protagonisti tre personaggi: la bella Ballerina, l’aitante e burbero Moro e lo sconsolato Petruška, innamorato della ballerina, che gli preferisce il Moro. Nel tentativo di ostacolare un loro incontro amoroso Petruška si attira le ire del Moro che lo rincorre nella piazza di Pietroburgo uccidendolo a colpi di scimitarra di fronte agli sconcertati passanti. La scena sembra così reale che il pubblico ne è impressionato. Il burattinaio li rassicura: si tratta solo di marionette, ma sullo sfondo della piazza compare il fantasma Petruška...
Mentre nel 1910 lavorava a La Sacre du printemps, Stravinskij aveva iniziato ad abbozzare un brano per pianoforte e orchestra intitolato “Le cri de Petruška”. L’impresario di balletto Diaghilev, entusiasta del brano, gli chiese di trarne la musica per un balletto. La partitura fu ultimata nel maggio del 1911 e la prima andò in scena il 13 giugno 1911 al Théâtre du Châtelet di Parigi con i ballerini Nijinski e Karasavina la coreografia di Michel Fokine, le coloratissime scenografie di Alexandre Benois, e con Pierre Monteux sul podio.
L'intersecarsi dei personaggi sulla piazza con quelli del teatrino, la dimensione del metateatro, l'atmosfera festosa che acutizza il dramma personale, costituirono meccanismi molto efficaci per dare sostanza drammatica alla vicenda. L'idea delle emozioni imprigionate nel corpo di una marionetta suggerì anche a Stravinskij l'uso di materiali musicali di tipo meccanico, ripetitivi, il gusto per sonorità aspre, dissonanti, percussive, facendolo approdare ad un linguaggio musicale assai più moderno e antiromantico rispetto a quello dell'Uccello di fuoco, e lontano da ogni suggestione esotica e favolistica. Nella partitura di Petruška Stravinskij intesse insieme una grande varietà di motivi, stilisticamente assai diversi, e sempre atomizzati, privi di ramificazioni, montati come in un collage: la musica da fiera, popolaresca e sfrenata, echi di canzonette e di marce, valzer e polke, musiche da cabaret e temi bandistici, in uno straniante caleidoscopio sonoro.


Nikolaj Rimskij-Korsakov "Shéhérazade" op. 35
Shéhérazade è una suite sinfonica ispirata dalle seducenti immagini dei racconti de Le mille e una notte, che ha fatto guadagnare al suo autore, sin dalla prima esecuzione nel 1888, il titolo di orchestratore geniale.
L’ispirazione letteraria per il capolavoro Rimskij-Korsakov è una raccolta di racconti popolari provenienti da Egitto, India e Persia e che include storie risalenti a più di mille anni fa e la cui fama iniziò nel 1704 in Francia e contribuì alla crescita delle turqueries: un interesse per la cultura, l’arte e lo stile dell’impero ottomano-turco. Per la maggior parte degli europei, che non avrebbe mai sperimentato l’Oriente in prima persona, questi racconti fornirono una lente colorata ed esotica attraverso la quale immaginare le meraviglie dell’Oriente.
I musicisti della scuola nazionale russa, con l’eccezione di Musorgskij, fecero ampio uso dell’orientalismo per rimarcare la loro specificità rispetto ai musicisti dell’Europa occidentale e anche Rimskij-Korsakov, nato a Tichvin, a est di San Pietroburgo, nel 1844, avviato alla carriera della Marina Russa secondo la tradizione familiare, ha saputo trovare nella fiaba – e nella possibilità di rivestirla dei colori e di un tessuto orchestrale scintillante, pieno d’impasti sonori – il suo spazio vitale, la sua ragione di musicista. L’occasione gli venne appunto dalla raccolta delle “Mille e una notte”, che l’arabista francese Jean-Antoine Galland (1646-1715) trasse da un manoscritto trovato in una biblioteca araba e integrato da altre favole della tradizione orale. La raccolta narra del Sultano Sahriar che ha giurato di far uccidere ciascuna delle sue mogli dopo che avrà trascorso la prima notte con lui. Shéhérazade, figlia del Gran Visir, eccita il suo interesse con i racconti che gli narra durante mille e una notte: il sultano rimanda così l’esecuzione di giorno in giorno, finché lascia cadere il crudele proposito. Lo stesso Rimskij-Korsakov precisa nelle memorie: “Il programma che mi ha guidato nella composizione di Shéhérazade consiste in episodi separati tra loro: il mare e il vascello di Sinbad, il racconto fantastico del principe Kalender, il figlio e la figlia del re, la festa di Bagdad e i vascelli che s’infrangono su una roccia. Il legame è costituito da brevi introduzioni alla prima, alla seconda e alla quarta parte, e da un intermezzo nella terza scritti per violino solo, che rappresentano Shéhérazade mentre narra al terribile sultano i suoi racconti meravigliosi.” È ancora Rimskij-Korsakov ad accompagnarci nella magia della fiaba: “Componendo Shéhérazade non intendevo orientare l’ascoltatore dalla parte dove si era diretta la mia fantasia. Volevo semplicemente che avesse, se la mia musica sinfonica gli piaceva, la sensazione di un racconto orientale, non soltanto di quattro pezzi suonati l’uno dopo l’altro su temi comuni. [...] Questa composizione e altre conclusero un periodo in cui la mia orchestrazione aveva raggiunto un grado notevole di virtuosismo e di sonorità chiara, senza influenze wagneriane».

India's Jet Airways grounds Boeing 737 Max 8s
HOUSTON (AP) - India's Jet Airways says it has grounded its five Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft after a crash in Ethiopia that killed all 157 people on board.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
The airline said it is not flying any of the 737 Max planes in its fleet and is "in contact with the manufacturer."
&nbsp;&nbsp;
On Monday, India's aviation watchdog said it ordered a safety assessment of the aircraft. It also issued safety instructions for flying Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
The directions call for the pilot-in-command to have at least 1,000 hours of flying experience and the co-pilot to have 500 hours on Boeing 737 NG type aircraft.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
Indian airline SpiceJet also has Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft, but it's unclear if those planes are grounded. Calls and emails to the company were unanswered Tuesday.
