NEW ORLEANS— Late on a Saturday night a little over a week before Mardi Gras Day, a warehouse in a semi-industrial corner of downtown is thumping with bass and jammed to its damp cinderblock walls with people, with more spilling out into the gravel yard. Inside, the temperature is at least 10 degrees warmer than the…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

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


          150th Anniversary of the 142nd PA Volunteer Infantry      Cache   Translate Page      
This week marks the sesquicentennial of the formation of 142nd PA Volunteers.

During the summer of 1862, Union victory in the War Between the States was anything but assured. In fact, until this point it was the Confederate forces who were racking up victory after victory on the battlefield. Federal losses during the Peninsular Campaign in Eastern Virginia, the Shenandoah Valley in West-Central Virginia, and New Orleans and Shiloh in the Western Theater shed a dark shadow across the White House and the Governor's mansions of the Northern states during that spring and summer.

In response to the military losses suffered by the Federal Army, the Commander in Chief, Abraham Lincoln, made a call for 150,000 additional troops.


To the Governors of the several States:
The capture of New Orleans, Norfolk, and Corinth by the national forces has enabled the insurgents to concentrate a large force at and about Richmond, which place we must take with the least possible delay; in fact, there will soon be no formidable insurgent force except at Richmond. With so large an army there, the enemy can threaten us on the Potomac and elsewhere. Until we have reestablished the national authority, all these places must be held, and we must keep a respectable force in front of Washington. But this, from the diminished strength of our Army, by sickness and casualties, renders an addition to it necessary in order to close the struggle which has been prosecuted for the last three months with energy and success. Rather than hazard the misapprehension of our military condition and of groundless alarm by a call for troops by proclamation, I have deemed it best to address you in this form. To accomplish the object stated we require without delay 150,000 men, including those recently called for by the Secretary of War. Thus reenforced our gallant Army will be enabled to realize the hopes and expectations of the Government and the people.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN.

The 142nd PA was among the hundreds of new regiments that formed across the Union in the summer of 1862 at the urging of the President.

Pennsylvania's Governor, Andrew Curtin, was among the Union Governors who replied back to President Lincoln:

Andrew Gregg Curtin
(Photo: Camp Curtin Historical Society)


The PRESIDENT:
The undersigned, governors of States of the Union, impressed with the belief that the citizens of the States which they respectively represent are of one accord in the hearty desire that the recent successes of the Federal arms may be followed up by measures which must insure the speedy restoration of the Union, and believing that, in view of the present state of the important military movements now in progress and the reduced condition of our effective forces in the field, resulting from the usual and unavoidable casualties in the service, the time has arrived for prompt and vigorous measures to be adopted by the people in support of the great interests committed to your charge, respectfully request, if it meets with your entire approval, that you at once call upon the several States for such number of men as may be required to fill up all military organizations now in the field, and add to the armies heretofore organized such additional number of men as may, in your judgment, be necessary to garrison and hold all the numerous cities and military positions that have been captured by our armies, and to speedily crush the rebellion that still exists in several of the Southern States, thus practically restoring to the civilized world our great and good Government. All believe that the decisive moment is near at hand, and to that end the people of the United States are desirous to aid promptly in furnishing all reenforcements that you may deem needful to sustain our Government.

Andrew Gregg Curtin was the wartime Governor of Pennsylvania, serving as Republican from 1861-1867. The Bellefonte, PA native became an ally of President Linoln's in the war effort and was excellent at being able to secure funding and troops to protect his state from the Confederate troops sneaking back and forth across his southern border.

Curtin came from a political family and was a lawyer before entering the political arena himself. After the war, he became Minister to Russia, a Democratic US Congressman, and was a member of the Committee on Foriegn Affairs and the Committee on Banking and Currency.

After his time in Congress, Curtin resumed his law practiced until his death in 1894. He is buried in Union Cemetery in his hometown of Bellefonte.


                                         ---------------------------------------------------

The men of the 142nd were mustered into service at Camp Curtin, an army camp near Harrisburg, PA. Camp Curtin was established soon after Ft. Sumter was fired upon, when men throughout Pennsylvania converged on the state capital to volunteer their services. At that time, Governor Curtin ordered his state militia commander to seize the grounds of the Dauphin County Agricultural Society. Although it was supposed to be named "Camp Union", when the Camp was opened on April 18, 1861, Maj. Joseph Knipe changed the name to honor the State's Governor. Over the course of the War, over 300,000 troops passed through Camp Curtin, making it the largest Federal camp.  

Even though the camp trained such large numbers of soldiers, at least two Somerset County men from Co. F were less than impressed with their short stay. 

In his Saturday, August 23, 1862 diary entry, 1st Sgt Jacob Zorn wrote that "Camp Curtin (on as windy as day as this) is one of the dirtiest and dustiest places Ive ever Been theres no end to dust" (sic)

The next day's entry is no better: "Gov. CURTIN passed through Camp today and plenty of women visiting. but most of them are in my opinion doubtful characters" (sic)

Capt. Albert Heffley only briefly mentions Camp Curtin in passing, after the regiment has already been moved to Washington, DC. "Camp Curtin is a very dirty place. The boys did not like it there a bit."

Though they might not have enjoyed their time at Camp Curtin, it was the launching pad for the 142nd PVI. It is where they came together, elected officers, and received their gear to get them through the next four years of bloody and dirty conflict. This would be the most peaceful time of their military service. In only a few shorts months, bullets and cannonballs would do what they do in all wars: steal young men from their friends and family far too early.

Cole is 7 months old! How fast time is flying by. This month was especially CRAZY around our house. Cole had many "firsts" this month too. He attended his first football event on the turf with his Daddy. 


He was able to hang out with Uncle Jason for a few weeks before he moved to Mississippi. [If that face doesn't say it all... He LOVES his Uncle Jason]
Cole learned to crawl.... backwards. Still working on the forward progress. 

He listened to his Daddy sing and play guitar. 

Cole got his first cowboy hat and boots with his Papaw! Stud muffin. 
Cole rode his first airline flight! Yippee!! It was a breeze with this little man. He didn't cry or fuss a bit on any of the flights. He became a little traveler this month. We spent two weeks flying from city to city for back to back weddings. First, his cousin got married in downtown Chicago. So we stayed a few extra days to explore the city and relax a bit. 

He got his first life-size Mickey Mouse!!! Obviously, a big deal. I mean can you see that look on his face?! 

He rode his first marry-go-round while we were in Chicago.
And he slept through Pizza Date night with Mom and Dad. [We greatly appreciated your thoughtfulness, sweet son]
He slept through our family Italian dinner. Uncle Jason to the rescue! =)
He walked the Magnificent Mile!  
And giggled his way through downtown Chicago. He was so much fun and such a trooper! He was passed around a LOT... yet he smiled and went to anyone that snatched him up. [Which this momma was very grateful for lots of family around, as I was in the ER up until hours before our first flight took off with bursitis. NO fun!]
Up up and away! Off to Mississippi we go for Uncle Jason and Aunt Chelsea's wedding!!
Cole got his first piano lesson from his Aunt Chelsea's second momma, Mrs Tricia. Obviously, he loved, loved Mrs Tricia! [And for the record, she can play the piano better than ANYONE I've ever heard. Such a sweet heart she has as well. We loved being guests in her home for the evening.]
Cole and Daddy at Uncle Jason's rehearsal dinner. I personally am crazy about his Mickey Mouse bow tie and red suspenders. 
 Cole was an honorary ring bearer in his Uncle Jason and Aunt Chelsea's wedding. His little tux was precious. [Still waiting for wedding pictures to get back... once I do I'll upload more of the wedding]
And even after sleeping in hotel cribs for two weeks, he was still all smiles as we drove to New Orleans to fly back home. Oh sweet baby, never lose your positive outlook on life. You bring so much joy to everyone you meet. 
We love you, little Cole!!

Brandon Ingram unceremoniously saw his NBA season come to an end after it was found that he had a blood clot in his arm. The Los Angeles Lakers medical team diagnosed him with Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT) and it remains unknown for now how long the 21-year-old can bounce back from this unfortunate setback. For the Lakers, the timing could not have come at a worse time. Ingram was one of the bright spots for the purple and gold even if he was among the players Los Angeles dangled to the New Orleans Pelicans for Anthony Davis.
          Toxic acid poses an unnecessary health risk to more than a million in the Greater New Orleans region      Cache   Translate Page      
From:  The Lens 

By Ariella Cohen, The Lens staff writer |
The accidents unfold with eerie similarity: an unexpected explosion, a stubborn blaze, workers coughing and rubbing damaged eyes, a thick, ash-colored cloud of toxins racing away from the burning refinery.
On July 19, 2009, when a refinery in Corpus Christi, Texas, lit up, a worker was critically hurt and the fire burned for two days. On Nov. 24, 1987, an explosion at an ExxonMobil refinery in Torrance, Calif., shot a fireball 1,500 feet into the air, blasted the windows out of nearby houses and generated allegations of broken eardrums, back pain and lung damage.
The common denominator in both explosions was a toxic chemical many Louisiana residents have never heard of, though more than 3.7 million people across the state are at risk if a similar explosion happens here, according to company filings submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  MORE

          2nd Large Winged Biped Encountered in Woodstock, Illinois      Cache   Translate Page      

I recently received another sighting of a large winged biped in Woodstock, Illinois on Thursday, March 7th, 2019:

My daughter just saw this on Rose Farm Rd in Woodstock, IL while driving home. It ran in front of her car. She is extremely freaked out right now. She described it as a extremely tall with fur and large wings. She said when she saw it she had a overwhelming sense of dread. I hope this helps with your investigation. KS

The witness has been reluctant to comment beyond the initial report...mostly out of fear. The local media has also been causing some unwanted excitement in the community as well. Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research has refused to cooperate with the local media because of this.

We are continuing to stay in touch with this witness in the hope that further details will be offered.

          Study says taking a nap can lower your blood pressure just as well as pills -- but there's a catch      Cache   Translate Page      

Tinpixels/iStock(NEW YORK) -- Monday is National Nap Day, and now there's a serious medical finding that may convince you to get some midday shuteye.

Taking a nap isn't just about recharging your batteries -- a new study says clocking out for a bit during the day can lower your blood pressure as much as taking blood pressure medication can.

Researcher Manolis Kallistratos with Asklepieion General Hospital in Greece and his colleagues studied 212 people who had high blood pressure, and prescribed a nap for some, and none for the other group. Those who napped at least 49 minutes in the afternoon saw their systolic blood pressure fall an average of  5mm/Hg lower compared to those who didn't take a nap.

Kallistros noted, "These findings are important because a fall in blood pressure as small as 2 mm Hg can reduce the risk of cardiovascular events, such as heart attack, by up to 10 percent."

The researchers are presenting their findings at the upcoming American College of Cardiology’s Annual Scientific Session in New Orleans.

But before you throw your pills in the trash, the ABC News Medical Units had some caveats, most notably, that the study was a small one, and the researchers don't say for how long the effect was sustained.

At any rate, a nap is not a substitute for pills if prescribed by a physician.

What's more, the effect the nappers enjoyed might very well be from living an existence that's chill enough for them to actually be able to take a midday nap and not the nap itself.

          Baton Rouge Catholic Charities expands international adoption services      Cache   Translate Page      

Baton Rouge, La., Mar 12, 2019 / 04:21 pm (CNA).- Catholic Charities of Baton Rouge has expanded their international adoption services into the northwestern part of Louisiana.

Paula Davis, the clinical director of maternity, adoption, and behavioral health services for Catholic Charities of Baton Rouge, told CNA that the agency saw a need for adoption services north of Baton Rouge and expanded to fill that need.

“I think one of the values [of being a Catholic-based adoption service] is that we are mission-based, so we’re providing services, whether its domestic or international, based on the needs of the child, but also with respect for life,” Davis said.

She also said that they are looking for families not only for infants, but for “all children who are in need of a loving, stable home.”

Davis stated that Catholic Charities of Baton Rouge staff have extensive experience in international adoptions and are Hague accredited, which she described as a “seal of approval that we are providing competent, ethical, transparent international adoption services.” They are also the only Hague accredited adoption agency in the state, a requirement for most international adoptions.

Catholic Charities’ expanded services will provide the cities of Lafayette, Lake Charles, Alexandria, and Shreveport with home studies, training, and post-placement supervision.

It will also hold free informational seminars once a quarter for families to learn about different adoption processes and to find which process is best for them.

“The children who are available for adoption internationally are older and they typically have special needs, so it’s important that families understand the needs of the children and the challenges they’ll face. And that the agency that they’ll work with is experienced with international adoptions,” Davis explained.

Out of the Baton Rouge office Catholic Charities also provides services in domestic adoption, maternity, search and reunion, and post-adoption counseling, which Davis said they hope someday to be able to offer throughout Louisiana.

Catholic Charities of Baton Rouge has facilitated domestic adoptions since 1964, and international adoptions since the 1990s.

Catholic Charities of New Orleans is also present in the state and handles international adoptions for the New Orleans area.

Noting that international adoptions in the U.S. have dropped dramatically since the mid-2000s, and the application of the requirement for Hague accreditation by agencies, she said Catholic Charities of Baton Rouge typically handles five to seven international placements per year.

“Our staff is experienced in international adoption and in supporting families of children from hard places,” Davis said.

“It’s important to understand that our mission is finding families for children, not children for families; and that the child’s needs take precedence.”

[杂谈] 美国桥梁省心否 40桥垮塌为什么(26P) - 路人@行者 - 路人@行者
  2018年3月15日下午,位于迈阿密的佛罗里达国际大学校园附近一座在建天桥坍塌,8车被压、已致6死9伤。这座桥长仅53米、重约950吨、造价达1420万美元的人行天桥,出事5天前仅用6小时吊装到位,号称能抗五级飓风、百年不倒,是世界首座完全由自动清洁混凝土建造的桥,首次使用一种先进的计算机控制系统(自我推进模块化运输,Self-Propelled Modular Transportation)完成主桥运输安装......然而该桥“搭成”5天之后,桥塌了,变成一个名副其实的、标准的豆腐渣工程。据统计,1951年~1988年美国发生了114起桥梁倒塌事故;1989年~2000年倒塌桥梁达到503座;依据维基百科统计,2000年以后美国垮塌的正式桥梁数22座(不含本次),同期中国9座。关于中国桥梁垮塌事故,路人曾连续以《[原创] 15年目睹怪现状 150桥垮塌为什么》为题分(上46P)(下46P)(续50P)逐一进行了简介,下面路人和大家一起看看美国桥梁怎么样?

01、凯悦酒店人行廊桥坍塌事故Hyatt Regency Walkway

  • 死亡人数:114(200伤)
  • 地点:密苏里州堪萨斯城Kansas City, Missouri
  • 时间:1981年7月17日
  • 凯悦酒店第二和第四层的两条人行廊桥由于住客人数过多发生坍塌。坍塌的过道坠落到前厅的舞池当中。美国土木工程师学会The American Society of Civil Engineers称其为“美国历史上造成死亡人数最多的结构失误”/"one of the most devastating structural failures in U.S. history in terms of lives lost."。
  • 坍塌原因:当时桥上挤满了人群,部分人们正在跳舞。建筑学家认为一个原因是跳舞的人们有节奏的振动引发人行桥结构断裂,另一个原因就是桥面人员过多,负荷过重。
  • The walkways on the second and fourth floor of the Hyatt Regency Hotel collapsed under the weight of guests. They then both crashed onto a crowded dance floor in the lobby. The American Society of Civil Engineers called it "one of the most devastating structural failures in U.S. history in terms of lives lost."

  • 地点:西弗吉尼亚州欢乐点与俄亥俄州加利波利斯之间Between Point Pleasant, West Virginia and Gallipolis, Ohio
  • 时间:1967年12月15日
  • 据目击者称,Silver Bridge的整个1,460英尺悬挂部分在不到20秒内折叠成“一副纸牌”,并坍塌在河中。调查人员后来称该桥由于一处发生断裂,引发了这次事故。
  • 坍塌原因:眼杆Eyebar疲劳断裂,历时39年的高负荷运作,使得该桥靠近俄亥俄州一面的一个链环不堪重负而断裂。链条与桥塔之间的不合理关系,也是导致灾难发生的原因之一。
  • According to eyewitnesses, the entire 1,460-foot suspended portion of the Silver Bridge folded "like a deck of cards" in less than 20 seconds and collapsed into the river. Investigators later blamed a fracture in the bridge for the accident.

08、35号州际公路大桥事故I-35 W Bridge

  • 死亡人数:13(145伤)
  • 地点:明尼阿波利斯Minneapolis
  • 时间:2007年8月1日
  • 事故原因:桥梁养护不足。2007年8月1日下午6:01,明尼苏达州一座州际公路桥在晚高峰时段垮塌,大约300米的桥面连同数十辆汽车坠入密西西比河,致死13人,数十人受伤。美国国家运输安全委员会调查发现,这座钢结构拱桥的10多块支撑板型号不对,桥墩支撑板的厚度只达到标准厚度的1/2,但例行检查却没有发现这一问题,是美国自1983年以来最严重的非天灾或外力因素所造成的桥梁崩塌事件。新的大桥于2008年9月18日通车,在离新桥不远的地方,建立了倒塌事故的纪念公园,纪念这场事故,作为历史教训,永远载入史册。纪念碑上这样写着:“我们的生命不仅被所发生的定义,也被我们面对所发生的行为所定义,不仅被生命带给我们的所定义,也被我们带给生命的所定义。悲剧事件内无私的行为和悲悯创造长远的社区。”
  • Support plates that were about half as thick as they should have been were the likely cause of the I-35 W bridge collapse over the Mississippi River, investigators said.

  • 死亡人数:10
  • 地点:纽约州亨特堡Fort Hunter, New York
  • 时间:1987年4月5日
  • 事故原因来自于桥体的建筑失误。据报道,桥桩只是被固定在了河床上,而并未被打进河床之下。
  • Faulty construction was to blame for the collapse of the bridge. According to the Times-Union, the bridge's pilings were built on the riverbed instead of driven into the bedrock beneath the surface.

           Comment on What People Keep Getting Wrong About Green Book: It Was Not a “Surprise” Winner by James Baker       Cache   Translate Page      
Thanks for explaining the outrage to us. Maybe you didn't notice that a major reason the film won is that many people had heard all about the outrage, and were outraged by the outrage. We've had too many similar so-called outrages in the last few years, and we're sick to death of them. La La Land was racist, apparently, because it was made by whites and a white guy saved jazz. No, he clearly stated that it originated in New Orleans, and black jazz musicians were playing while he talked about jazz. Are white people not even allowed to be fans of jazz? The following year Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri was called racist, because a racist character redeemed himself. "Racists are racists and can't redeem themselves" is itself a racist comment, if you think about it, as well as being factually incorrect. The outrage was because he didn't face any consequences, you may say. But one of the major themes of the film, whatever you may think of it, was that nobody faced consequences for anything in that town... (spoilers)... not for arson, thumb torture, pushing people out of windows, beating people up... oh... or rape or murder. Yet somebody should face consequences for racism there? That criticism was less logical than any of the plot twists of the film. The main premise of your outrage this time is that the team behind the camera was all white. This is factually incorrect, since executive producers Octavia Spencer and Kwame Parker were both black, and Don Shirley, who approved the screenplay, was black. The writers were white, you meant. This is a wrong and dangerous criticism. It's one thing to say that actors on the screen should be representative: it's quite another to say that writers should look like the characters they write. Should we throw away Kevin Jarre's screenplay for the film Glory? Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird? Shakespeare's Othello the Moor? No, good writers do not need to look like their characters. If you go down that road, you will doom literature. Nick Vallelonga was one of the writers because he was the son of one of the leads. Just supposing he had done what you wanted and hired a token black person to help him write the screenplay. What improvements could have been made to the content of the film? Elsewhere in this thread, I gave ways to improve the other films in the BP race, but I have not heard any critics of Green Book give constructive ways to improve this film, other than calling for more blacks behind the camera. It shouldn't have been "feel-good", you say. Sorry, but this story ended at Christmastime and the two became lifelong friends, according to Don Shirley himself. This is historically accurate, so cannot be changed. It shouldn't be a "simplistic" story about "racial reconciliation", you say. That just shows that your own interpretation was simplistic. This story was not simply about race, was it? It was much deeper than that. Don Shirley was never intended to represent average black men. He said himself that he neither fitted in with whites nor with blacks. We know why he didn't fit in with whites: he didn't look like them. Why did he feel he couldn't fit in with blacks? The black people who oppose this film need to ask themselves this question. That's not to say all blacks oppose this film, or even most blacks. It had support from wise and influential leaders like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, columnist at the Hollywood Reporter, and musicians Quincy Jones and Harry Belafonte, who knew Don Shirley, and Rep. John Lewis, who lived during that time and said, at the Oscars, that the film was accurate. He is one of the most senior Democrats in the House, close behind Nancy Pelosi, but some of these "outraged" opponents of Green Book were dismissing him as an old fool. It was a disgrace.

          Baton Rouge Catholic Charities expands international adoption services      Cache   Translate Page      

Baton Rouge, La., Mar 12, 2019 / 04:21 pm (CNA).- Catholic Charities of Baton Rouge has expanded their international adoption services into the northwestern part of Louisiana.

Paula Davis, the clinical director of maternity, adoption, and behavioral health services for Catholic Charities of Baton Rouge, told CNA that the agency saw a need for adoption services north of Baton Rouge and expanded to fill that need.

“I think one of the values [of being a Catholic-based adoption service] is that we are mission-based, so we’re providing services, whether its domestic or international, based on the needs of the child, but also with respect for life,” Davis said.

She also said that they are looking for families not only for infants, but for “all children who are in need of a loving, stable home.”

Davis stated that Catholic Charities of Baton Rouge staff have extensive experience in international adoptions and are Hague accredited, which she described as a “seal of approval that we are providing competent, ethical, transparent international adoption services.” They are also the only Hague accredited adoption agency in the state, a requirement for most international adoptions.

Catholic Charities’ expanded services will provide the cities of Lafayette, Lake Charles, Alexandria, and Shreveport with home studies, training, and post-placement supervision.

It will also hold free informational seminars once a quarter for families to learn about different adoption processes and to find which process is best for them.

“The children who are available for adoption internationally are older and they typically have special needs, so it’s important that families understand the needs of the children and the challenges they’ll face. And that the agency that they’ll work with is experienced with international adoptions,” Davis explained.

Out of the Baton Rouge office Catholic Charities also provides services in domestic adoption, maternity, search and reunion, and post-adoption counseling, which Davis said they hope someday to be able to offer throughout Louisiana.

Catholic Charities of Baton Rouge has facilitated domestic adoptions since 1964, and international adoptions since the 1990s.

Catholic Charities of New Orleans is also present in the state and handles international adoptions for the New Orleans area.

Noting that international adoptions in the U.S. have dropped dramatically since the mid-2000s, and the application of the requirement for Hague accreditation by agencies, she said Catholic Charities of Baton Rouge typically handles five to seven international placements per year.

“Our staff is experienced in international adoption and in supporting families of children from hard places,” Davis said.

“It’s important to understand that our mission is finding families for children, not children for families; and that the child’s needs take precedence.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here's the top 50:

DON'T MISS: These are the 25 most powerful militaries in the world — and there's a clear winner

50. New Orleans, Louisiana, had 36.87 homicides per 100,000 residents.

In 2018, New Orleans had a population of 393,292 people and 145 homicides.



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

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



48. Teresina, Brazil, had 37.61 homicides per 100,000 residents.

In 2018, Teresina had a population of 861,442 people and 324 homicides.

My husband and I are taking a no-kid vacation in October!!

(memecrunch.com)

It has been several years that we have been able to do something without children and we are super excited.

I wanted to go someplace that I have never been so we decided on New Orleans. After searching for plane tickets and discovering the astronomical pricing we have decided to drive.

Then my husband dropped the ultimate bomb, he wants to also go to WALT DISNEY WORLD!! That would mean going without kids, which at first made me feel guilty but then I realized that I will be able to go through EVERY SINGLE SHOP and not worry about getting to the next ride. It's like a dream come true.

We are going to try and live it up while there. First step is possibly renting DVC points from David's. My friends recommend it all the time but with 5 people (tickets, food, room, etc.) it isn't cost effective for us to stay DVC or even Deluxe for that matter. We are hoping for Boardwalk Villas but we will see how it goes, If not I may end up at Port Orleans French Quarter.

So, this brings me to recommendations. Do you have any hotel recommendations in New Orleans? Do you have any recommendations of things that we can do at Disney without kids?

Let the crazy planning begin...

          How the Air Pollution Crisis Can Affect You      Cache   Translate Page      

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) 92 percent of the world's population breathe polluted air,1 and nearly 7 million deaths can be attributed to air pollution each year.2 An overall toxic environment is responsible for at least 25 percent of deaths reported worldwide, and poor air quality is one of the greatest contributors to this risk.3

Your body is dependent on the air you breathe. Poor quality can damage your lungs, heart and other organs’ systems. Sources of pollution take the form of emissions from factories, cars, planes and aerosol cans. Secondhand cigarette smoke pollutes indoor air, as do volatile organic compounds emitted from many household items, such as carpeting, furniture and chemical cleaners.

Indoor air pollution may be dependent on ventilation in the building, as well as insulation and construction materials. Short-term health effects can include illnesses such as pneumonia or bronchitis and exacerbation of asthma. Many also suffer from headaches, dizziness and nausea triggered by chemicals.4

Particulate matter (PM), is a mixture of solids and liquid droplets in a wide range of sizes. PM 2.5 — particulate matter 2.5 micrometers in diameter or smaller — can only be seen with an electron microscope and is small enough to pass through your lungs and into your bloodstream.5

Long-term effects of this type of air pollution can last a lifetime and may even lead to death after damage to your heart, lungs, kidney, liver, brain or nervous system. Scientists also suspect air pollutants may trigger birth defects.6

Ethylene Oxide Poisons Air in Willowbrook and St. John the Baptist Parish

One such air pollutant is ethylene oxide poison belching from the stacks at Sterigenics in Willowbrook, Illinois, a small affluent suburb of Chicago in DuPage County. Sterigenics uses ethylene oxide to sterilize medical equipment, pharmaceuticals and food, and has been discharging the gas into the community for the past 34 years.7

Only after the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS), a division of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), assessed levels of ethylene oxide in 2016 did the surrounding neighborhood learn of the danger. Although levels had been measured in the past, the chemical's status had been recently upgraded from "probable human carcinogen" to "carcinogenic to humans."8,9,10

Although the levels released into the air near the plant remained roughly the same, since the IRIS had adjusted the risk level, official reflection of risk suddenly skyrocketed.

The EPA considers the "upper limit of acceptability" for cancer risk 100 cancers for every 1 million people. In the most polluted area in DuPage County, the risk of cancer was now 282 per million. However, the values set by the IRIS were not binding, leaving residents in Willowbrook with a precisely quantified threat but no obvious way to legally address it.11

Sterigenics was previously owned by a private-equity firm cofounded by then-governor of Illinois, Bruce Rauner. One year later he left the firm to campaign for public office. Although unavailable to answer detailed questions, Rauner criticized officials for releasing the report, saying:12

"This is not an emergency. This is not a public health immediate crisis. This is something we are managing. We are going to work with the federal government to monitor this whole situation … and try to reduce exposures from this as much as we can."

EPA and Legislator Response Dramatically Different Based on Location

Although the situation in Willowbrook is drastic, the air quality in St. John the Baptist Parish in Louisiana is deplorable. This small, mostly African-American community along the Mississippi River is 30 minutes west of New Orleans with an even bigger ethylene oxide problem from a factory making chemicals used in cosmetics.

In St. John, the cancer risk from the gas is 317 per million. But ethylene oxide is only one pollutant in the air in St. John. In the most heavily polluted tract the air contains 45 industrial pollutants known to cause cancer and other serious health problems.

One of those chemicals is chloroprene, emitted from the country's one remaining neoprene factory.13 The combination of these chemicals raises the risk for residents in the small neighborhood from 317 per million to over 1,500 per million, making it the most dangerous neighborhood in the U.S., according to the EPA's report.

However, while the EPA is working alongside local and state officials to address the dangerous levels of ethylene oxide in the Willowbrook neighborhood, the agency has done next to nothing in St. John the Baptist Parish.

Concurrently, St. Charles, Louisiana, located just 30 minutes from St. John, hasn't received a visit from the EPA staff either, even though Dow Union Carbide plant spits out ethylene oxide and has raised the cancer risk in St. Charles to 710 per million, according to EPA reports.

The EPA and state legislature in Illinois have played key roles in monitoring air near the Sterigenics plant, eventually ordering the plant to shut down,14 while eight other polluted and struggling communities have received no assistance from the EPA at all. Wilma Subra, an environmental consultant, commented on the disparities between Willowbrook and other poorer communities:15

"No one has required anyone to even consider putting on control technologies here. In Illinois, EPA had ATSDR [Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry] look at the risk and do air monitoring. But here in Louisiana, where we have the highest risk for ethylene oxide, they didn't do any of that."

Company Denies Rapidly Rising Health Problems Linked to Air Pollution

The people in St. John the Baptist Parish learned of their health risks after a 2010 assessment by IRIS showed chloroprene was far more dangerous than previously thought. However, the gas had been released into the community for the previous 40 years, increasing rates of leukemia, lung cancer, kidney cancer and liver cancer.

The plant, then owned by DuPont and now by Denka, had been spewing chloroprene at dangerous levels, but the EPA had not notified people near the factory when the assessment was published, nor did they contact residents when a new report came out in December 2015. According to the reporter at The Intercept:16

"In a written response to questions for this article, a spokesperson from Denka criticized the safety level for chloroprene calculated by IRIS as 'based on incomplete and flawed data' and disputed the characterization of its emissions as dangerous: 'Scientific research shows Denka Performance Elastomer's operations do not pose any additional health risks to the surrounding community.'

Denka’s spokesperson also cited research to back up that claim, noting in particular that ‘a published peer-reviewed study that tracked more than 15,000 workers in neoprene plants across the world, including 1,400 from the [St. John] LaPlace facility, found no increased incidence of cancer deaths among them since the 1940s.'

That study was paid for by the International Institute of Synthetic Rubber Producers, an industry group that includes DuPont as a member. Independent studies have shown that exposure to the chloroprene increased the risk of leukemia, kidney cancer, liver cancer, colon cancer and liver cancer."

Growing Up Green Reduces Potential for Depression and Anxiety

A lack of healthy air not only has a significant effect on physical health but also on mental health. Green space is widely understood to be health-promoting in residential environments, and has been linked to mental health benefits and reduced stress.17

Research18 from Aarhus University in Denmark also suggests access to green spaces may have a protective effect in the long term, as children growing up close to nature are less likely to develop mental health problems as adults, including depression and anxiety.

Living in a city space has been associated with higher risk of some psychiatric disorders without identification of underlying cause. In this study, green space was assessed using high resolution satellite data of the area around the participants' place of residence from birth to age 10.19

The data show the risk for mental illness for those who had the lowest level of green space was up to 55 percent higher than those who had the highest level of green space. The effect also appeared to be cumulative, as there was a stronger association between mental health and cumulative years with access to green spaces during childhood as compared to a single year.

Indoor Air Pollution Nothing to Sneeze At

Symptoms of exposure to indoor air pollution resemble those you may experience from an allergy or a cold, such as20 worsening asthma; itchy, watery eyes; headaches; dizziness; fatigue; and runny nose. These typically disappear once you leave the problem area. Chronic exposure over a longer period of time, however, may result in more chronic and serious health conditions.

Phthalates are one common contaminant found in indoor air pollution, a chemical added to plastics to improve durability and found in literally hundreds of products in American homes. Research indicates phthalates are carcinogenic and have been linked to reproductive problems, nervous system issues and immune suppression.21

The American Academy of Pediatrics,22 a group of over 65,000 pediatricians in the U.S., is asking parents to limit children's exposure to dangerous plastic chemicals, including phthalates, warning the chemicals may damage their children's health for years to come.

In a panel discussion at the latest American Association for the Advancement of Science conference,23 researchers presented data demonstrating pollutants are released into your home from everyday activities such as cooking and cleaning, and from household items like furniture and carpeting.

Researchers used an uninhabited 1,200 square-foot home on the University of Texas campus. Over 30 days, they performed a variety of household activities while measuring indoor concentrations of air pollution.

To the team's surprise, indoor concentrations were high enough that instrumentation needed to be recalibrated almost immediately. Marina Vance, Ph.D., an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at CU Boulder, commented on the results:24

"Homes have never been considered an important source of outdoor air pollution and the moment is right to start exploring that. We wanted to know: How do basic activities like cooking and cleaning change the chemistry of a house? Even the simple act of making toast raised particle levels far higher than expected. We had to go adjust many of the instruments."

Another study undertaken by Heather Stapleton, Ph.D., one of the foremost experts in the field of fire retardant chemicals, studied children in their homes, analyzing samples of dust in air, as well as blood in urine samples from the children.25

From this information they found children who lived in homes where the sofa in the main living area contained polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) had six times higher concentration of the chemicals in their blood than children whose sofa did not contain the chemicals.

What Can You Do to Reduce Your Risk From Air Pollution?

While you may not have control over the air pollution in your neighborhood, you have some control over the air quality in your home. For a discussion of action steps to consider to reduce your health risks from indoor pollution see my previous article, "Reduce Indoor Air Pollution."

Research26 shows improving air quality also benefits your mental health by reducing "psychological distress."27 Many of the strategies discussed in my previous article are very cost-effective in the short run and may help significantly reduce your health care costs long-term.

Health coach Luke Coutinho stresses the importance of nutritional strategies to reduce the burden air pollution has on your health. While it continues to be important to avoid air pollution as much as possible and to lower the pollution levels in your home, also consider the following strategies to support detoxification:28

Eat a diet rich in nutritious, whole foods — Eating a rainbow of fruits and vegetables helps you ingest a wide range of antioxidant nutrients, many of which help your body remove toxins and reduce the effects of inflammation. Foods high in antioxidants help you meet nutritional deficiencies triggered by air pollution. Since your body uses these antioxidants to protect itself from toxins, you need a diet high in antioxidants to avoid deficiencies.

Green vegetables have chlorophyll that help rid your body of environmental toxins and pesticides. At the same time it's important to stay hydrated to help your body with elimination and to reduce or eliminate sugar, processed foods and alcohol.

Bromelain — If you're faced with congestion and upper respiratory symptoms from air pollution, consider taking bromelain or pineapple extract as it helps improve respiratory function. Bromelain is a nonenzymatic ingredient known for the ability to inhibit inflammation.

Curry — Curcumin is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound present in turmeric used in curry. In one study,29 researchers measured respiratory function in nearly 2,500 older Chinese adults and found a diet rich in curry appeared to protect lung function in smokers.

Coutinho believes the base of most of your meal preparation should come from garlic, onion, ginger and turmeric to take advantage of the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of these foods.


          Chi sono gli esperti israeliani che recuperano le salme delle vittime del Boeing      Cache   Translate Page      

Sono gli 'angeli' che arrivano pochi minuti dopo un evento catastrofico, che sia un attacco terroristico o un disastro naturale: gli esperti israeliani di Zaka (acronimo in ebraico per 'identificazione delle vittime di disastro), oltre 3.600 volontari, operativi 24 ore su 24, che entrano in azione non solo in patria ma anche all'estero, ogni volta che le loro capacità, internazionalmente riconosciute anche dall'Onu, vengono richieste.

L'ultimo caso è quello dell'aereo dell'Ethiopian Airlines, schiantatosi al suolo domenica mattina con 157 persone a bordo, tra cui due israeliani.

Sul posto è stata immediatamente inviata una delegazione: "La velocità" di intervento è fondamentale, "arrivare sul posto di un incidente entro i primi vitali minuti o le prime vitali 48 ore nel caso del crollo di un edificio o di un disastro naturale" è cruciale, ha sottolineato in un'intervista David Rose, direttore internazionale di Zaka, e lui stesso veterano tra i volontari, molti di loro ebrei ultra-ortodossi.

Svolgono lavoro di primo soccorso, assistendo le attività delle ambulanze, e aiutano nell'identificazione delle vittime del terrorismo, impegnandosi nella raccolta dei resti per assicurare loro una degna sepoltura secondo la legge ebraica.

I corpi sono sacri

Proprio così mossero i primi passi nel 1989, in occasione di un attentato contro un autobus.

Sei anni dopo venne ufficialmente fondata da Yehuda Meshi-Zahav l'organizzazione civile di volontari Zaka, il cui motto è "salvare coloro che possono essere salvati, onorare quelli che non si possono salvare".

La vittima viene "trattata in modo sacro, a prescindere dalla sua religione o razza: questa è la più alta forma di 'vera virtù', aiutare qualcuno che non può esprimere la sua gratitudine", ha spiegato Rose.

Negli anni hanno anche diversificato i loro campi d'azione, creando unità specializzate sulle due ruote, per le operazioni in montagna o sotto'acqua, insieme ai gruppi speciali rivolti alle comunità di drusi e beduini.

Alla ricerca degli scomparsi

Parallelamente a questo impegno sul fronte di incidenti e attentati, i volontari collaborano anche nella ricerca di persone scomparse, in Israele e all'estero, così come nelle operazioni di ricerca e salvataggio di fronte a incidenti di massa.

È il caso degli tsunami in Thailandia (2004) e Giappone (2011), il devastante terremoto che ha colpito Haiti nel 2010 o il sisma del 2015 in Nepal, così come gli uragani contro New Orleans (2005), Houston e Florida (2017).

Nel 2018, furono tra le prime organizzazioni umanitarie internazionali ad arrivare dopo l'eruzione del vulcano guatemalteco Fuego, impegnando l'unità Zaka che era stata creata pochi mesi prima nel Paese centro-americano, grazie all'addestramento di soccorritori e volontari della comunità ebraica locale.

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

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

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

          'Everything Just Came Flooding Back': Sparks Of Teen Romance Rekindled 28 Years Later      Cache   Translate Page      
In the summer of 1981 in Louisiana, Liz Barnez, then, 16 and Lori Daigle, then 17, shared a secret kiss. "I actually remember that first kiss," Daigle tells Barnez in a StoryCorps conversation. "We drove out to the parking lot of Lake Pontchartrain, and I remember never being so afraid and so excited in my entire life." They had met the year before as athletes on competing Catholic high school teams. There was an instant spark. But after the kiss, they didn't talk about it — or their attraction. Then Daigle went off to college out of state, and Barnez stayed in New Orleans to finish high school. She played in bands while attending University of New Orleans. They lost touch. Meanwhile, Daigle came out to her Catholic parents when she was 19; they were not accepting. She did not go home for five years. She married a man and her family welcomed her back. "I felt love and I felt companionship, but that feeling that I had for you — that crazy, chaotic excitement — I just didn't feel that,"

          Titirangi Festival of Music reveals full programme      Cache   Translate Page      

Live music, silent disco, workshops and more!

With just three weeks to go until kick off, Titirangi Festival of Music reveals its full programme of events, with the addition of two more concerts, and a collection of free events to match every taste. It's all about bringing the community together to get amongst the fun!

The concert programme begins with the brilliant Cha Wa from New Orleans on Thursday, with Sola Rosa headlining Friday, and Bic Runga on Saturday, with these headline shows all at the Festival Ballroom, Titirangi War Memorial Hall. The Confluence Of Ways in association with Creative Jazz Club play Titirangi Theatre on Saturday night and NZTrio: The Americas comes to Te Uru on Sunday afternoon. Music lovers are recommended to book tickets to these concerts quickly!

As always, the headline concert events are supported by a huge programme of free events designed to bring the community together—there's a silent disco, a panel discussion on urban sanctuaries, an art trail, a kids' parade and live performances across the musical spectrum.

Titirangi Festival - Free Programme:

Marquee Stage

It starts with a bang at Friday night's Local Explosion in the giant stretch tent at Festival Hub on Friday 29 March, from 5:30pm - 8pm. You'll shake off the working-week to West Auckland pop genius SJD as he performs a special dusk dance-set, supported by 2018 Battle Of The Bands winners Blu Fish. Also on the bill and helping to create a local, colourful atmosphere are festival favourites African percussion ensemble Mhara Marimba, and with us for the first time the 16-strong Titirangi Community Choir lead by conductor Brigid Ursula Bisley. The silent disco runs from 5:30pm-8pm.

On Saturday at the Family Fiesta, again in the giant stretch tent at Festival Hub 12nn - 4:30pm, feel free to laugh out loud with magician extraordinaire, Le Cirque De JP, as he hosts an afternoon of family-friendly music and fun activities, featuring ukulele trio, The Nukes, with a combined orchestra from local schools, Lee Majors (from 95bFM's Kids Show) 'Kids' Disco', Kimata's African Tribal Drumming (with lots of opportunity to join in), and the brilliant marching band Superhero Second Line. The afternoon finishes with prizes and a superhero-led parade where children can show off their creations from the Te Uru Art Trail.

Te Uru Art Trail 12-4pm Saturday at Festival Hub
Te Uru again presents the Art trail, this year inspired by global street carnivals. Morph into a spectacular exotic bird, by making a funky percussion instrument to wear around your neck with chiming bells, sequins and feathers. Then create a vibrant bird mask with dazzling plumage and then finish off with face painting to transform into a musical work of art. You can then join the parade with Superhero Second line from 4pm.

There will be prizes on the day and lots for the kids to do.

'Up iIn the Village' - 12nn - 6pm Saturday
'Up In the Village', the Skools Out stage 12nn -3pm invites you to make some noise with high schoolers from Green Bay, Avondale College and Rudolf Steiner School (and recent graduates, SmokeFree RockQuest finalists Bad Dog) as they strut their stuff outside Glovers in the village, while the 'Cockspurs Stage' 3pm - 6pm invites you to join rocker Labretta Suede as she hosts DJs and performs live.

'Gitbox Rebellion' - 1pm Saturday, Te Uru
Don't forget to stop in on 'Gitbox Rebellion' and get your gat fix with the acclaimed guitar group inspired by King Crimson's Robert Fripp. Set in the 2nd floor photo exhibition by Gavin Hipkins.

'Urban Sanctuaries Panel Discussion' - 1pm Saturday, Titirangi Library
There is a groundswell and growing commitment amongst neighbours in our Titirangi surrounds to reverse ecological decline and restore the biodiversity in our local neighbourhoods.

'Friday Night Flicks'

Shrimp, lobster and crayfish a centerpiece of celebratory meals

Shellfish occupies a rare place in the American psyche. It is seen as healthful because of its low fat content and high protein, but also as indulgent because it’s more expensive than most other proteins. It’s also green because producing it generally generates fewer greenhouse gases than land protein.

Maybe that’s why it’s offered so often during celebrations.

Take a look at some recent holiday promotions featuring seafood.

          Jazz this week: Kurt Elling, Nicole Mitchell, Lubambo, Alves & Ribeiro, and more      Cache   Translate Page      
This week's calendar of live jazz and creative music in St. Louis brings sounds from all over, including two prominent performers who each got their start in Chicago, one who made his name on Broadway, and three coming from Brazil via NYC. Let's go to the highlights...

Wednesday, March 13
Singer Kurt Elling - one of the aforementioned Chicagoans, though he now lives in New York - performs for the first of five nights, continuing through Sunday at Jazz St. Louis.

Elling (pictured, top left) returns here for the first time since the release in 2018 of his most recent album The Questions, so it seems likely that a good portion of material from that recording will be part of his sets here. You can see videos of live performances of several of those tunes, and find out more about what Elling has been up to more recently, in this post from last Saturday.

Elsewhere around town, clarinetist and former St. Louisan Chloe Feoranzo, now residing in New Orleans, will be back in town for a concert with her quartet at Focal Point, and guitarist Brian Vaccaro leads a trio at Evangeline's.

Thursday, March 14
Pianist Jim Hegarty returns with his quintet to the The Dark Room; guitarist Dave Black and singer Erika Johnson perform at The Pat Connolly Tavern; and pianist Adam Maness' trio is back at Thurman's in Shaw.

Friday, March 15
Pianist, singer and Tony Award-winning musical theater composer Jason Robert Brown performs in concert at the Grandel Theatre; and the Original Knights of Swing play for dancers at Casa Loma Ballroom.

Saturday, March 16
Flute player and composer Nicole Mitchell’s Liberation Narratives, featuring poet Haki Madhubuti, performs in a concert presented by New Music Circle at Xavier Hall on the St. Louis University campus.

A composer and conceptualist with wide-ranging interests, Mitchell (pictured, bottom left) is a past president of Chicago's Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians and recently was appointed head of the jazz program at the University of Pittsburgh, succeeding the late Geri Allen.

Mitchell has been involved in a constantly evolving variety of musical projects over the years, with her latest collaboration with poet Haki Madhubuti offering "an unabashed take on the state of the nation" via her compositions and the poet's spoken word performances.  For a bit more about that, plus some videos of Mitchell performing in various contexts, see this post from a couple of Saturdays ago.

Elsewhere around town, pianist Peter Martin's Open Studio will present a concert of Brazilian jazz featuring guitarist Romero Lubambo, pianist Helio Alves, and drummer Edu Ribeiro, along with St. Louis' own Bob DeBoo on bass.

Also on Saturday, the Coleman Hughes Project celebrates six years as a band with a gig at Lowes Entertainment; and trumpeter Jim Manley and keyboardist Chris Swan will play at One 19 North Tapas & Wine Bar.

Sunday, March 17
Friends have organized a benefit for saxophonist Fred Walker, who no longer can perform due to recent health issues, for late Sunday afternoon at BB's Jazz, Blues & Soups, with announced performers including Walker's former band Mystic Voyage, saxophonist Kendrick Smith, blues singers Kim Massie, Eugene Johnson, and Lady J Huston, and more.

Monday, March 18
Pianist Carol Schmidt and saxophonist Paul DeMarinis will team up for a concert of duets at Winifred Moore Auditorium on the Webster University campus.

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




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




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

          Juventus's shares are soaring after Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick took the team into the final 8 of the Champions League      Cache   Translate Page      

Cristiano Ronaldo beats Atletico Madrid

  • Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick against Atlético Madrid has sent Juventus's shares up 17%.
  • Ronaldo's three goals for Juventus meant the Italian club overturned a two-goal deficit and secured passage to the last eight of the Champions League.
  • Juventus shares fell 11% after the first-leg defeat, but have rallied on the unlikely victory sending the club into the quarter finals. 

Cristiano Ronaldo jumped to score two of his three goals against Atlético Madrid on Tuesday night, overturning a two-goal deficit to secure Juventus's passage into the quarter finals of the Champions League.

Shares in Juventus have followed the forward's example, soaring 17% on the unlikely revival of the Italian soccer team's fortunes.

The Portuguese striker may be past his prime, but he successfully snatched victory from the jaws of defeat in Turin. Similarly, shares in Juventus plunged 11% after the disappointing first leg against Atlético - as investors feared the team were out of Europe's premier club competition and would miss out on revenues from the later stages - only to rise again.

Juventus' comeback clearly shocked investors as well as viewers. The share-price jump may reflect market optimism that Ronaldo hasn't lost his touch, and can sell plenty more shirts for the club.

Shares in Juventus rose a massive 95% in the days after it signed Ronaldo last summer, lifted by hopes that the former Real Madrid man could fire the "Bianconeri" to Champions League success. Despite Ronaldo's improved form, they currently trade at €1.43 ($1.62), down from around €1.57 last September when his signing was announced.

The superstar's arrival at Italy's most successful domestic club was heralded as the team's ticket to winning the Champions League, having lost in five previous finals. According to reports, 520,000 shirts were sold in just 24 hours after his signing — approximately $62.4 million worth of trade. Juventus also recently sold €150 million of bonds ($169 million) to cash in on its new striker.

Ronaldo's hat-trick might be a flash in the pan, and Juventus could well crash out of the quarter-finals. But for now, investors and fans appear to be keeping the faith.

The South’s Best Restaurants in Every State 2018

Don't miss these Southern-favorite eateries.

Since our editors started the South’s Best reader survey, we’ve been endlessly fascinated not just by the winners, but by the state-specific results, especially in regards to restaurants. The competition is just as fierce as you might imagine, and being a big city or having a celebrity chef aren’t necessarily advantages. Just when we think we know where the votes are heading, a completely different winner emerges by the end. But what we love about this list the most is that it shows Southern food beyond stereotypes and expectations. A mix of classics like Commander’s Palace in New Orleans and The Oak Room in Louisville with newer, more modern additions to the Southern food scene like Oxford’s Saint Leo and Atlanta’s Staplehouse, this range of restaurants from fine dining destinations to beloved neighborhood fixtures shows off what we love the most about our region’s restaurants. This is where Southerners are eating now.

The South's Best Restaurants 2018

No list surprised us more this year in our South’s Best reader survey than the Restaurants category.

While the results included a few of last year’s winners, the newcomers to this list demonstrate the power of a devoted following whether it be in a tiny town like Davidson, North Carolina, or an underrated city like Knoxville, Tennessee.

This year’s winner L’Opposum in Richmond, Virginia might not have the region-wide reputation of others who made the list, but those have seen Chef David Shannon’s cheeky approach to formal classics (Menu items include “An Ebullient Bowl of Bouillabaisse” and “C’mon Simone, Let’s Talk About Your Big Halibut”) know why he has earned the city James Beard Award-level attention.

The rest of the winners features classics complimented by unexpected newcomers to this list. In Alabama, Highlands Bar & Grill endures as one of the original restaurants that brought Southern food into the national conversation. Still helmed by Chef Frank Stitt, Highlands stays concretely classic but never dated. On the Eastern edge of the state, Chef David Bancroft has made Auburn known for something other than football. At Acre, he takes inspiration from the garden neighboring the restaurant to create a seasonal, ever-changing menu that is equal parts reverential and playful with Southern ingredients.

In Tennessee, two winners emerged: one, the Barn at Blackberry Farm and the other J.C. Holdway not too far away in Knoxville. The connection between them goes beyond location however. Chef Joseph Lenn started J.C. Holdway after a long career at Blackberry Farm where he made the resort a food enthusiasts’ destination.

Kindred brings Southerners from all over the region to Davidson, North Carolina, a tiny town of less than 15,000 people, for fresh takes on Appalachian cooking. Across the region in Texas, San Antonio has put its Texas sister cities on notice with the newly developed Pearl complex. San Antonio is also home to second place winner Signature.

Commander’s Palace and Husk have both become flagship institutions to their city’s cooking traditions from the Lowcountry to the Cajun-Creole style of New Orleans. Although they carried over from last year’s list, we know next year’s will still have room for new staples and surprises. Take a look at the best restaurants, chosen by you.

The South’s Best Food Cities 2018

When we added the Food Cities category to our South’s Best reader survey, we wondered if the winners would look like the usual suspects. Not so. After picking your favorites from a long list, this year’s first batch of food cities mix established scenes with others seeing revivals. Some are major hubs while others are under-the-radar locals. But they all share deep connection to hospitality.

The winner, New Orleans, combines 300 years of storied culinary tradition with the contributions of newcomers and new thinking. Legendary restaurants like Commander’s Palace, Antoine’s, Dooky Chase’s, and Upperline thrive in the same environment that has given rise to a new wave of restaurants like Turkey and the Wolf, N7, and Saffron that take cues from the classics but spin them in a way all their own.

While Austin’s reputation as a destination for food-focused travelers has been solidified time and time again, San Antonio, is gaining national attention with the development of the Pearl, a former brewery turned hotel and dining campus featuring restaurants like Cured. Atlanta’s appearance isn’t a surprise, especially with Buford Highway, which could be another city unto itself filled with globally influenced restaurants from Malaysian to Mexican and almost anywhere else you can think of. It’s college town counterpart, Athens, also made the list thanks not only to Chef Hugh Acheson who calls it home, but also because of brewery Creature Comforts and a slew of new restaurants making Southern food modern. Savannah also represented for Team Georgia with its now less tourist-centric scene including new spots like Collins Quaters, an Australian-style cafe and Alleycat, a basement bar with classy cocktails. Chef Mashama Bailey’s The Grey has only thrived since opening in 2014 as was named the best restaurant in the country last year by Eater.

Charleston comes as no surprise, but their neighbor to the North, Asheville, has become sought-out by saveurs who want to see the city’s internationally known beer community along with restaurants like Buxton Hall Barbecue, Chai Panai, and Rhubarb.

With a collective Southern food scene hotter than any chicken from sixth-place winner Nashville, next year’s list is any city’s game.

Ill go ahead and say it Neal G com handssuraters Life the impression makes valid points. Because of Americas dependence on technology-based media delight it is undoable non to interact with the distracting and alluring world of expressive communication. The world we expire in today is sadly not the wiz that Henry David Thoreau was able to circumnavigate for two years in 1845. Today, to avoid media, is to be only shut away from the world. G single argon the days of subtle newspaper and objective journalism. They moderate been trampled by 24-hour news cycles and narcissism-based neighborly networking sights call for peep and Facebook. While I lowlifet help that run with Gabler on the medias degenerative effects, there is a brighter side to a globalized system of frolic. merriment exactlytocks for certain ruin smart set if presumption the chance. Take for guinea pig, MTVs Jersey Shore. A show with suddenly no moral integrity, but simple humor and evoke suppli cant can make coin, so realistically executives will invest in more of the identical material. At the same era, hate/fear-mongering media moguls analogous Glenn Beck and hurry Limbaugh have a devoted, if not cult- standardized following of 60- whateverthings that they control in the name of enjoyment. Clearly, entertainment has the capacity to ruin the structure of bon ton, for better or worse. Whereas sites wish cheep and Facebook can be pernicious to hostelry, they can in any case cause imperious progress.Very recently, young Iranian revolutionaries used Twitter as a substance of communication, education, and unity. Videos of citizens beaten to death in the streets were tended to(p) by calls to action, as a youthful and courageous Iranian population revolted against its oppressive g e veryplacenment on the computer and TV screens of the globalized world. Furthermore, recent crisis worry the tsunamis in In acquireesia, hurricane in New Orleans, and earthquakes in H aiti were brought into the homes of the prosperous and caring crosswise the world.Although tragic, these events demonstrated the capacity that a connected human populous has for charity. Billions of dollars in relief money has been donated in the past decade, thanks to the stirring images captured not only by corporate cameramen, but as well by civilian camcorder. Thus, to define entertainment as solely destructive or well(p) is unfair. slew ar not always wise enough to procedure off what they know is subjective information, but they be no means praying to neon gods.In his book Life the Movie, Neal Gabler discusses how entertainment has taken over the reality. This is true in every way spate watch video or pics, listen to music, and Facebook stalk their friends upright to get out of their take heads for a while. It is an escape from their realities. Gabler argues that the outlet the media has come to provide can potentially ruin society. This is true in many another(pre nominal) cases. Certain forms of entertainment can indeed overturn all morality and poison the springs of domestic happiness. Music, specifically, is one type of entertainment that has the capacity to cause hoi polloi to compromise their morals. It has a sneaky way of planting new thoughts in our minds. Music artists theorise of lyrical euphemisms to subtly engrain an idea into their listeners minds.For example, in their song Fast Blood, the clever Scottish band Frightened Rabbit sings about a midnight organ fight a clever euphemism for sex. Even if their listener wasnt sure what that line meant, the rest of the lyrics would help him piece it together fairly quickly. Its a beautiful song, and soon enough, the listener finds himself singing along, and the idea that sex allows a person to feel reborn has now become a belief of this listener. And, whabam, there we have a compromised moral resulting from the idea of one song. The characters and stories found in movies, books, and t elevision are aspects of entertainment that most certainly have the ability to ruin society.They can jeopardize a familys happiness by creating an image of the ideal spouse or important other or family. Stefanie Meyers Twilight Saga, for example, bring ins the character of Edward Cullen the perfect lover. comedian Whitney Cummings made a good point in her offer up routine Money Shot when she said, Women are obsessed with squashwe get brainwashed from romantic movies. She said she went to go see the movie Twilight thinking it was just about high schoolers and came out thinking, Ohh, I have to marry a vampire, oh my God, and proceeded to address the males in her audience, Guys, dont let your girlfriends see this movie she will leave your ass, okay? Movies like Twilight create this image of the perfect man.If women see that and begin to equality their husbands to Edward Cullen, divorce papers will soon be a-rustling. Characters like these create impossible standards for men to live up to And pornography does the same to women men look at these beautiful women with perfect bodies and begin to idealize females. And thusly no adult female is good enough for them because it is impossible for a woman to look like that without plastic surgery, a crapload of make up, and a full-page hell of a lot of photoshop. Media like this has the potential to destroy relationships because it establishes an unreachable standard.So, yes, Gabler makes a good point. Although entertainment can be fun, effortless, sensational, mindless, formulaic, predictable and revolutionary and that is why people love it so much, it can be detrimental to society as a whole. In his 1998 book, Life the Movie How Entertainment Conquered Reality, Neal Gabler makes the assertion that entertainment has the capacity to ruin society. Although plenty of entertainment features positive messages and portrays good role models, I completely agree with idea the entertainment can ruin society because a large percentage of entertainment and media can acclimate viewers minds toward violence and it can corrupt citizens views of society and of themselves. In our modern media there are thousands upon thousands of movies, tv shows, songs, and video games that encourage violence and other negative behavior.Many people believe this to be harmless fun, but in instances when consumers blur the line surrounded by trick and reality it can become very dangerous. One tragic instance of this occurred June 7, 2003, when 3 men, 2 constabulary officers and a 9-11 dispatcher, were killed in an Alabama police station by 18 year-old Devin Moore, who had played Grand Theft railroad car day and night for months before the shooting. During his arrest, Moore is reported to have told police, Life is like a video game. Everybodys got to die sometime. Entertainment can also ruin society by destroying citizens views of society and of themselves.From magazines to movies to television, the media has created a s tandard of darling perfection that many people struggle to live up to because they want to be accepted. For example, professional athletes like Lebron James, Payton Manning, and many others have caused many plan athletes to look defeat upon themselves because they are not able to perform to the same level as the pros. Although many celebrities have contributed great acts of charity to society, that does not change the fact that much of entertainment, which these celebrities are apart of, encourages negative behavior. If not brought under control, these negative behaviors can bring about the downfall of society as we know it.Entertainment can be in many different forms television, magazines, books, the computer, music, etc. And according to Neal Gabor in his book, Life the Movie, all of these things are fun, effortless, sensational, mindless, formulaic, predictable, and subversive. The fact that because of these reasons, people like entertainment is true. However, just because peo ple like something, or enjoy it, doesnt mean its not harmless. People who go tan in tanning beds everyday enjoy doing it, but in reality it triples their risk of skin cancer. The social impacts of entertainment are already showing in todays society.People are communicating less and less by person, and more and more by computers. When people lose their ability to communicate with the people around them outdoor(a) of their entertainment bubble, the sense of community is lost, and is causing increased health risks. totally this said, it is not true that ALL entertainment will completely break up the ties of our social order. If entertainment is used in moderation and people learn to make the distinction between entertainment and reality, then it can be an enjoyable experience. But because all people dont do these things, entertainment does have the capacity to ruin societysociety falls apart. In addition, some of the things that entertainment exposes society to can fudge the though ts and decisions of Americans and cause problems for society.For example, TV networks are creating shows like Americas coterminous Top Model, and giving people the idea that in order to be beautiful you have to be dangerously thin and look like a model. This causes poor self-images, and causes people to be un apt. To make matters worse, celebrities everywhere are getting cosmetic surgery. This gives audiences the idea that they shouldnt be happy with who they very are, and that in order to be happy, they have to waste tons of money on unnecessary procedures. Also, the percentage of people getting divorced in America has been increasing lately.This is most likely because of the fact that celebrities are getting divorced left and right, and its starting to become the norm. People are making money off of those divorces by selling the stories (in gossip magazines) as entertainment. Entertainment portrays false realities that have potential to crumble social aspects of society. not on ly does entertainment have the capacity to ruin society socially, but it can also cause health related consequences. The percentage of Americans that are either overweight or obese is somewhere around 63% and that is constantly increasing.Though it is true that part of the cause for this is the amount of elegant foods we eat, but another large part of it is the amount of time we pretermit sitting, a concept that goes along with entertainment. Today people dont have the need to go out much to be happy. Children can sit andwatch TV or play video games for entertainment, and no longer need to go outside to play with their friends. Also, because of computers people dont need to leave their house to communicate with friends, they can just do it on Facebook. People dont even have to leave their house to grocery shop anymore they can just use their computer.The fact is that entertainment has made America into a very sedentary country, which Just like a friends make for on ones behavior, entertainment has the capacity to destroy or strengthen ones character. Someone can choose between entertainment with fleeting pleasure or lasting value. i. by chance entertainment can ruin society because it is so distracting. For example, if kids and teenagers fill all of their time with entertainment instead of education, then how might this ruin society?ii. Maybe entertainment can ruin society by overturning morality. What are some ways that entertainment might change a societys moral principles for the worst? For example, do violent video games cause people to believe that killing is not morally wrong? If so, how would this ruin a society?iii. Maybe, as your quote above claims, entertainment does dissolve the ties of social order. Does entertainment contribute to increased crime or civil zymolysis? Can you think of ways that entertainment directly or indirectly causes a societys rule of law to break down?

I just wanted to save the file in the Photos folder section and post it here. ------------------ I found this old photo of a musical legend named Boxcar Lynas. He knew all the early bluesmen of the 1920's... after he graduated from art school, he decided to take some "time off" and ride the rails 'cross country. In a short time Boxcar Lynas became a famous street busker, playing with some of the greatest Bluesmen of all time such as BlindBoy Beetle and Unckle Johnny Twang. He traveled from the east coast to the west, from Memphis to Nashville, where ever he went, the crowds would gather 'round as "ol' Boxcar" played his homemade one string cigar box fiddle. Legend has it, one time while street preforming in the New Orleans french quarter, Boxcar Lynas put on such a great show he caused a traffic jam, delivery carts, streetcars and shoeshine boys gathered to hear him play his homemade one string diddle fiddle.   He got so many tips he filled up a tin can with buffalo nickels in just 30 minutes! ---------------------- Ha Ha, I found this photo on eBay and just thought I would have a little fun with a story I made up this story I just thought this photos is super wonderful! it was for sale, if anyone is interested, it is here, I asked the owner if I could use it and he said yes, but if you are interested here it is https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fairmount-Tennessee-Postcard-REAL-PHOTO-Cigar-Box-Fiddle-Music-Instrument-1914/192846513555?hash=item2ce68c4593:g:uW4AAOSwFfJcfZzr -------

Now that Veronica Mars is off the air, I have to rebuild my TV-viewing slate from scratch. What better way to do that than sampling all of this fall’s new series?

Following Hurricane Katrina in 2005, not only people were left homeless and in need of help but beloved pets were also left without families to care for them. This is the story of two such pets (both dogs) whose lives changed drastically as the water began to rise and people were forced to relocate in different areas. Both dogs were in comfortable and loving homes before the storm touched the Gulf Coast. Then for the first time in their lives, they had to struggle to just stay alive. In both cases their owners continued to search for them in every possible way. The dogs’ journeys took them in different directions and to two different endings. Thanks to many kind and compassionate people they met along the way, both Ginger/Cheyenne and Percival were able to resume their lives with people who loved them.

The Commitment Challenge, Book 1

Author: TJ Spencer Jacques

Language: English

2018

Introducing... Timothy, Telly, Jarvis, Rasta, and Biyell. Five men who share one major flaw: an appetite for mistresses. Infallible is about five gamers in their late thirties who come together every Thursday night for a John Madden Football tournament. This weekly event is hosted and narrated by an older guy they refer to as Uncle Glenn - the sixth member of the Madden Night crew. Once Uncle Glenn’s wife departs for her regular Thursday night shift, the crew arrives to smoke the most potent weed in New Orleans, roast each other into knee-slapping laughter, and swap strategies of how to cheat and not get caught. Uncle Glenn loves their company, even though he’s happily married and faithful to his wife, Diana. Infallible is all laughs and giggles until Diana discovers her husband is hanging out with five cheating, lying, creeping, baby-making, narcissistic assholes—that’s when she tears her husband a new asshole. Uncle Glenn is left with a choice: quit his friends or challenge his friends to be Infallible - to commit to one woman. This novel may require a warning label because the pages are abrasive and embedded with conversations that were never intended for female ears. Infallible also details the reactions of the unfortunate women who discover they have ‘sister wives’ on the other side of town.


          Lottoland: World’s Largest Jackpot in History Ever – MegaMillions Mania Hits as US Jackpot Rolls Again      Cache   Translate Page      
Queues have reportedly reached epic proportions in the US as the MegaMillions jackpot reaches a record $1.6 billion (€1.4bn or £1.2bn) – but Lottoland offers customers the chance to grab a slice of the jackpot from the comfort of their own home. Today, the world is waking up to the biggest MegaMillions jackpot ever and the world’s largest jackpot ever in history – but if those outside the US want to take part in the US Lottery, it could involve a cross-Atlantic flight and a long queue outside US newsagents – however, Lottoland customers can take part from the comfort of their own home or on their smartphone through the app. As well as offering customers a chance to bet on the outcome of the US lottery and the possibility of pocketing at least $1.6 billion (€1.4bn or £1.2bn) With no one matching all six numbers in the lottery since July 24th this year, the US lottery jackpot has continued to roll and today reaches a record $1.6 billion (€1.4bn or £1.2bn) [3]. Lottoland has compiled a short list of five amazing things consumers can buy for a $Billion -just in case consumers win and need some inspiration. The White House – Take over the White House and give Trump a run for his money. The Presidential Property is reportedly worth a cool $397.9m[4] A 16th Century Manuscript – The Codex Leicester, Leonardo Da Vinci’s manuscript from the 16th Century – a mere snap at $30.8m[5] An Island – Eagle Island offers five acres of vivid landscape in Lake Vermilion. Eagle Island is only a five-minute boat ride from the mainland and an absolute steal[6] Some fancy toilet paper [7] – Described as “taking you to another level of sophistication”, the 22 Karat paper roll would impress any visitors, right? And for $1.2m a roll, this is a bargain Robby the Robot from Forbidden Planet [8] – Robby the Robot has also featured in The Twilight Zone and The Addams Family. He became the most expensive movie prop ever sold for $5.375m. Go on, give Robbie a new home Slam-dunk’d the Jackpot? Buy an NBA team[9] – According to Forbes.com, the New Orleans Pelicans can be bought for a billion dollars Nigel Birrell, CEO at Lottoland, said: “Reports show that people in the US are joining lengthy queues to get a ticket for the next draw, but those who don’t fancy joining the line can take part from the comfort of their own home with Lottoland! Which is just as well considering that our research shows[10] we are often too polite for our own good when it comes to queuing. 67% of us would let someone with fewer items go ahead of us at a checkout and 42% of us wouldn’t say anything if someone pushed in front of us – imagine if that person had the winning ticket? “We haven’t seen a jackpot like this since January 2016, when the US PowerBall hit a World Record $1.586bn. At the time, Lottoland experienced a 9000% increase in visitors to the site as people got involved from all over the world. We have already seen a 400% jump in people betting on the MegaMillions outcome this week.” In June this year, Lottoland set the Guinness World Record for the largest online gambling payout at €90m. Lottoland players keen to claim one of the world’s biggest prize pots ever can do so via the world leading online betting operator at http://www.lottoland.com . About Lottoland Lottoland has grown rapidly to become a world leader in online lotto. Innovation, coupled with the freedom to offer players a unique and enhanced lottery experience, has been key to the company’s success. In June 2018, Lottoland paid out €90 million to one lucky winner in Germany – this win has been confirmed by Guinness World Records as the Largest online gambling payout. This is also the biggest payout for Lottoland to date. The Gibraltar-based business is active in 13 markets, has over 350 employees, and more than 8 million customers worldwide. Lottoland is licensed and regulated by the Government of Gibraltar, the UK Gambling Commission, the Republic of Ireland National Excise License Office, the Agenzia delle Dogane e dei Monopoli in Italy and the Northern Territory’s Racing Commission in Australia. https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/mega-millions-billion-1.4870876, https://www.9and10news.com/2018/10/19/northern-michigan-gets-in-on-mega-millions-mania/, https://www.wbay.com/content/news/Mega-Millions-mania-hits-Northeast-Wisconsin-498051561.html MegaMillions – Tiers 1-3 are subject to 38% reduction as per T&C’s (https://www.lottoland.com/terms ), Tier 1 winning best are paid out as a 3- year annuity or discounted lump sum at Lottoland’s election.

Trama
Lui è un uomo ricco, un magnate del petrolio, con due matrimoni falliti alle spalle.
Lei è un’autrice di successo, scrive romanzi rosa, ma non crede più nell’amore.
Tyler Moore ricorda bene Monique Delome, l’unica donna che non è mai riuscito a conquistare, che non si è mai donata a lui totalmente, nonostante il desiderio e l’attrazione schiacciante tra loro. Monique continua a scrivere di Tyler nei sui romanzi, anche dopo anni: i suoi occhi, i capelli, il fascino dell’uomo in carriera, il carattere potente e dominatore, per lei rimarrà sempre l’uomo ideale di ogni donna, un desiderio segreto, proibito.
Quando per caso si incontrano di nuovo, tra loro scatta qualcosa, una voglia inarrestabile di inseguirsi e scoprirsi, fisicamente e mentalmente, di darsi piacere reciproco come non era mai successo. Ma l’amore, i sentimenti, tornano a far capolino e a spingere per tornare a galla. Nessuno dei due però è disposto a dare la sua fiducia all’altro, questo perché la vita ha già segnato entrambi.

L’esordio letterario in Italia di un’autrice americana che si distingue per la passione e la realtà con cui tratta l’amore. Non c’è un tempo giusto per amare, perché le emozioni appartengono alla vita stessa, non all’età.

          Saints agree with RB Latavius Murray      Cache   Translate Page      
Four-year deal

Former Vikings’ RB Latavius Murray intends to sign a four-year deal with the Saints, per source. A shakeup to RB market. It now means Mark Ingram not expected to return to New Orleans. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: The Saints get their big back to go along with Alvin Kamara, the only difference being Murray isn't nearly the pass catcher that Ingram has been. Murray should have some Flex appeal in New Orleans but this move doesn't boost his fantasy value as much as you might think. It's more of a win for Alvin Kamara who could see an even greater involvement in the passing, and to Dalvin Cook in Minnesota.

Guitarist Anders Osborne talks about his fight back to sobriety and how he’s now helping others.

Anders Osborne has been to the brink, stared the devil in the face, and come back sober and stronger than ever. Known for his stunning guitar work as well as his deft songwriter's touch and soulful voice, Osborne comes to the Broadberry for a solo acoustic evening that showcases his profound body of work. Life is good, but it wasn't always this way.

The Swedish-born Osborne came to America at 19.

"I had a friend in Slidell that I met in Dubrovnik [Croatia]. We had traveled together for a while. I ended up staying in New Orleans and decided immediately that I belonged in that city. Later found out I have family here. I love it as much today as I did back in '85."

Osborne's fret skills were informed by a broad spectrum of influences.

"I started out playing along to Ry Cooder, Al Di Meola, Carlos Santana, Robert Johnson and Billy Gibbons. Later it was Neil Young, Jerry Garcia, John Coltrane and Miles Davis. My songwriting was influenced by Bob Dylan and Neil, Cat Stevens and Van Morrison."

Osborne has had a remarkable career, performing with the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Phil Lesh, Keb Mo', and Tab Benoit and the Voice of the Wetlands All-Stars. His songs have been covered by a diverse group of artists, including Tim McGraw who had a No. 1 hit on the country charts with "Watch the Wind Blow By."

In spite of all the acclaim, addiction nearly derailed his prodigious talent.

"Alcohol was the grandfather of all this," he says before rattling off a list of drugs that is startling in its expanse. "But underneath it all was alcohol. I'd be running late and show up three days later." He ended up sleeping on couches and park benches. He lost instruments and saw addiction impair his live performances. It took an intervention to get him into rehab.

While on tour things grew so bleak his manager and a roadie reserved a bed for him at a facility. It was time, as Osborne says, "to choose to make the walk back, or jump."

Making that choice proved fruitful, as Osborne now has a thriving career, a stable family life and a new sense of purpose.

Osborne realized that he couldn't leave behind his life as a musician when he embraced sobriety. While the life of a performing artist is dangerous ground to travel for anyone wanting to maintain a sober life, Osborne had an idea. What if he could create a network to support the sobriety of his fellow musicians? In 2016, Osborne started Send Me a Friend, known as SMAF. If you are an artist, road manager, or roadie in need of support, the group is there to help.

"In a lot of clubs the only place to hang between sets is at the bar. We'll send someone to sit with you and drink coffee instead of bourbon. The friend arrives a half an hour before show time and is there to be someone you can lean on."

Today, the group has more than 2,000 members and is growing. The member list contains well-known artists, but its focus is on the local player who isn't in the national spotlight. There is even an app in development.

Osborne explains that sobriety has sharpened his songwriting.

"I don't care anymore, I write 'cause I love to and the more truthful I am the better it feels. It's monumental for my sobriety that I do for others when I can."

On his current acoustic tour, he explains, "I get to have a personable conversation with the audience, we get to slow the evening down a little bit, find out what matters to us at that moment." Osborne has a lot on his plate and the future looks bright.

"Got a brand-new record coming out late April. It's called 'Buddha and the Blues.' Love it and can't wait for everyone to hear it. SMAF continues to work with musicians around the country helping them get back to work. We are doing a series called Lifeshop in New Orleans where we have master classes on different subjects (songwriting, yoga, meditation, cooking, painting etc.) to help sobriety feel a little more meaningful and inspiring."

Anders Osborne performs solo at the Broadberry on March 23 with opener Seth Stainback. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. $25. thebroadberry.com.

For most of the 2018 offseason and the months leading up to the NBA’s February trade deadline, Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball was the subject of countless trade rumors, including more than a few that suggested he would be among the players heading to the New Orleans Pelicans in exchange for Anthony Davis. However, Ball stressed in a recent interview that he doesn’t let these rumors bother him, as he wants to focus on playing as well as he could, regardless of which team he plays for.

          NBA Rumors: Draymond Green Reveals Main Reason Behind His Decision To Sign With Klutch Sports      Cache   Translate Page      

Draymond Green #23 of the Golden State Warriors reacts after he made a shot against the New Orleans Pelicans at ORACLE Arena on January 16, 2019 in Oakland, California.

A year before he becomes an unrestricted free agent, Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green decided to part ways with B.J. Armstrong of The Wasserman Group to hire Rich Paul of Klutch Sports Group as his new representative. In an interview with Marc J. Spears of ESPN‘s The Undefeated, Green revealed that he decided to sign with Klutch Sports after building a good relationship with Paul over the years.

Green said that Paul has everything a player is looking from an agent. Despite being questioned for his recent action, Green believes that joining the Klutch Sports Group is the “right move” for him. Green added the decision is “about me” and what he wants to “be aligned with moving forward.”

“At some point, some respect has to be given to what Rich has built and what he represents,” Green said.

          NBA Rumors: Lakers’ Morale Was ‘Sapped’ By Magic Johnson’s Post-Trade Deadline Comments, Per Zach Lowe      Cache   Translate Page      

Los Angeles Lakers team president Magic Johnson poses at a 2017 event at Dodger Stadium.

Most fans would have expected LeBron James’ return from a groin injury to revitalize the Los Angeles Lakers after they struggled in his absence. However, the Lakers’ swoon has continued even with James playing at his usual high level, as the team is currently far removed from playoff contention, sporting a 30-36 record and sitting at 11th in the Western Conference after five straight losses. It hasn’t helped either that youngsters Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram are both expected to sit out the rest of the season due to injuries, as previously reported by The Inquisitr.

While team president Magic Johnson had hoped to restore team morale after a plethora of trade rumors had linked several key players to a proposed trade for the New Orleans Pelicans’ Anthony Davis, a new report suggests that some of Johnson’s efforts had the opposite effect on the Lakers’ locker room.

          NFL Free Agency Talk: The New Orleans Saints Want Dez Bryant Back      Cache   Translate Page      

Dez Bryant #88 of the Dallas Cowboys runs onto the field prior to their NFL game against the Oakland Raiders.

Last season, the New Orleans Saints went looking for assistance at the wide receiver position, and finally found it with Dez Bryant. Unfortunately, the former Dallas Cowboy never made it into a game before an Achilles injury ended his season and stopped things short. Now, the Saints are still needing help in the same department — and they have their eyes on the same prize.

Before Bryant’s injury occurred, the Saints were hoping he would not only provide another weapon for Drew Brees, but would also get some heat away from Michael Thomas. After his injury, it took a combination of Austin Carr and Keith Kirkwood — and Thomas still continued to be double-teamed on the regular.

The Saints were hoping that Bryant would add another level of intensity to their offense, and it appears they still want to try him out. According to Pro Football Talk, the Saints are still very interested in the 30-year-old Bryant, and want him back for 2019.

          Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 3/12/19      Cache   Translate Page      
FINALS UPDATE: The Bachelor (2.4) adjusted up while FBI (0.9) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC's The Bachelor barrage finished up with two hours of 'After the Final Rose' (2.3) on Tuesday. Like last season when also scheduled this way, it tied the Monday finale, but we'll see if it can get find a new height in finals. The lead-in was wasted on a preview of unscripted offering Videos After Dark (0.8), which could only tie what The Rookie did last week when the lead-in was two-thirds as big.
  • Fox featured the two-hour return of MasterChef Junior (0.8/0.7). It was probably down a bit in Plus from last year's 0.93 premiere, which was on a Friday.
  • And NBC said goodbye for now to Tuesday editions of The Voice, bringing back Ellen's Game of Games (1.2) to the 8/7c hour at new low levels. In spite of the lead-in downgrade, This Is Us (1.8) managed an uptick, while New Amsterdam had the same 1.0 it's posted for every 2019 episode.
  • On CBS, NCIS (1.1) hit a low in its first post-DST episode, and so did NCIS: New Orleans (0.7) at 10/9c while FBI (1.0) was even. The CW was down with both The Flash (0.5) and Roswell, New Mexico (0.2).

          'Embarrassed' Black-Eyed Kid      Cache   Translate Page      

Brooke in Greenlea, Colorado called to tell of a strange encounter he had:

“I had an experience about 13 years ago. It's quite different from the experiences you're talking about. I worked in a psychiatric hospital in an adolescent unit in Ventura, California. I worked the night shift and I would often find myself hanging out in the night with the kids that couldn't sleep. There was this one young fellow who couldn't sleep and he was in his room. I was in his room sitting on his desk and he was about two feet away from me and I was looking straight in his eyes. We were talking. All of a sudden his eyes went black, like that man in that 'Men In Black' movie, you know, but they went black. He was leaning up against the wall with his arms crossed and it was almost like he became really embarrassed about it and he gently pushed me out of the way, ran past me out of the room, down the hall. He jumped over the nurses desk, did like a karate roll back up onto his feet and ran into the padded cell room and slammed the door. He wouldn't come out for the rest of my shift. I'm as sure that that happened as I'm sure I'm talking to you right now, man. He had a family. The other children on the unit knew him from school so it's a little different.”

Dementors?

“One night I was walking by this creepy vacant house (it had been vacant on and off with nobody lasting more than three months). It was around 3:00 AM and all of a sudden this 3D shadow looking thing (like the Dementors from Harry Potter) started walking parallel to me almost at the same pace but different enough for me to notice something off. I shrugged it off as me being tired for a second but decided to completely halt in order for me to make sure it wasn’t my own shadow. Sure enough this thing continued walking and as I stared in disbelief. It suddenly started sinking into the street as if there were invisible stairs under the ground. Seeing that shook me to the core and I ran the rest of the way home. I have no doubt in my mind that house had something to do with it. I have more stories regarding this house but this is my only personal experience.” - ed sapien

          How the Air Pollution Crisis Can Affect You      Cache   Translate Page      

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) 92 percent of the world's population breathe polluted air,1 and nearly 7 million deaths can be attributed to air pollution each year.2 An overall toxic environment is responsible for at least 25 percent of deaths reported worldwide, and poor air quality is one of the greatest contributors to this risk.3

Your body is dependent on the air you breathe. Poor quality can damage your lungs, heart and other organs’ systems. Sources of pollution take the form of emissions from factories, cars, planes and aerosol cans. Secondhand cigarette smoke pollutes indoor air, as do volatile organic compounds emitted from many household items, such as carpeting, furniture and chemical cleaners.

Indoor air pollution may be dependent on ventilation in the building, as well as insulation and construction materials. Short-term health effects can include illnesses such as pneumonia or bronchitis and exacerbation of asthma. Many also suffer from headaches, dizziness and nausea triggered by chemicals.4

Particulate matter (PM), is a mixture of solids and liquid droplets in a wide range of sizes. PM 2.5 — particulate matter 2.5 micrometers in diameter or smaller — can only be seen with an electron microscope and is small enough to pass through your lungs and into your bloodstream.5

Long-term effects of this type of air pollution can last a lifetime and may even lead to death after damage to your heart, lungs, kidney, liver, brain or nervous system. Scientists also suspect air pollutants may trigger birth defects.6

Ethylene Oxide Poisons Air in Willowbrook and St. John the Baptist Parish

One such air pollutant is ethylene oxide poison belching from the stacks at Sterigenics in Willowbrook, Illinois, a small affluent suburb of Chicago in DuPage County. Sterigenics uses ethylene oxide to sterilize medical equipment, pharmaceuticals and food, and has been discharging the gas into the community for the past 34 years.7

Only after the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS), a division of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), assessed levels of ethylene oxide in 2016 did the surrounding neighborhood learn of the danger. Although levels had been measured in the past, the chemical's status had been recently upgraded from "probable human carcinogen" to "carcinogenic to humans."8,9,10

Although the levels released into the air near the plant remained roughly the same, since the IRIS had adjusted the risk level, official reflection of risk suddenly skyrocketed.

The EPA considers the "upper limit of acceptability" for cancer risk 100 cancers for every 1 million people. In the most polluted area in DuPage County, the risk of cancer was now 282 per million. However, the values set by the IRIS were not binding, leaving residents in Willowbrook with a precisely quantified threat but no obvious way to legally address it.11

Sterigenics was previously owned by a private-equity firm cofounded by then-governor of Illinois, Bruce Rauner. One year later he left the firm to campaign for public office. Although unavailable to answer detailed questions, Rauner criticized officials for releasing the report, saying:12

"This is not an emergency. This is not a public health immediate crisis. This is something we are managing. We are going to work with the federal government to monitor this whole situation … and try to reduce exposures from this as much as we can."

EPA and Legislator Response Dramatically Different Based on Location

Although the situation in Willowbrook is drastic, the air quality in St. John the Baptist Parish in Louisiana is deplorable. This small, mostly African-American community along the Mississippi River is 30 minutes west of New Orleans with an even bigger ethylene oxide problem from a factory making chemicals used in cosmetics.

In St. John, the cancer risk from the gas is 317 per million. But ethylene oxide is only one pollutant in the air in St. John. In the most heavily polluted tract the air contains 45 industrial pollutants known to cause cancer and other serious health problems.

One of those chemicals is chloroprene, emitted from the country's one remaining neoprene factory.13 The combination of these chemicals raises the risk for residents in the small neighborhood from 317 per million to over 1,500 per million, making it the most dangerous neighborhood in the U.S., according to the EPA's report.

However, while the EPA is working alongside local and state officials to address the dangerous levels of ethylene oxide in the Willowbrook neighborhood, the agency has done next to nothing in St. John the Baptist Parish.

Concurrently, St. Charles, Louisiana, located just 30 minutes from St. John, hasn't received a visit from the EPA staff either, even though Dow Union Carbide plant spits out ethylene oxide and has raised the cancer risk in St. Charles to 710 per million, according to EPA reports.

The EPA and state legislature in Illinois have played key roles in monitoring air near the Sterigenics plant, eventually ordering the plant to shut down,14 while eight other polluted and struggling communities have received no assistance from the EPA at all. Wilma Subra, an environmental consultant, commented on the disparities between Willowbrook and other poorer communities:15

"No one has required anyone to even consider putting on control technologies here. In Illinois, EPA had ATSDR [Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry] look at the risk and do air monitoring. But here in Louisiana, where we have the highest risk for ethylene oxide, they didn't do any of that."

Company Denies Rapidly Rising Health Problems Linked to Air Pollution

The people in St. John the Baptist Parish learned of their health risks after a 2010 assessment by IRIS showed chloroprene was far more dangerous than previously thought. However, the gas had been released into the community for the previous 40 years, increasing rates of leukemia, lung cancer, kidney cancer and liver cancer.

The plant, then owned by DuPont and now by Denka, had been spewing chloroprene at dangerous levels, but the EPA had not notified people near the factory when the assessment was published, nor did they contact residents when a new report came out in December 2015. According to the reporter at The Intercept:16

"In a written response to questions for this article, a spokesperson from Denka criticized the safety level for chloroprene calculated by IRIS as 'based on incomplete and flawed data' and disputed the characterization of its emissions as dangerous: 'Scientific research shows Denka Performance Elastomer's operations do not pose any additional health risks to the surrounding community.'

Denka’s spokesperson also cited research to back up that claim, noting in particular that ‘a published peer-reviewed study that tracked more than 15,000 workers in neoprene plants across the world, including 1,400 from the [St. John] LaPlace facility, found no increased incidence of cancer deaths among them since the 1940s.'

That study was paid for by the International Institute of Synthetic Rubber Producers, an industry group that includes DuPont as a member. Independent studies have shown that exposure to the chloroprene increased the risk of leukemia, kidney cancer, liver cancer, colon cancer and liver cancer."

Growing Up Green Reduces Potential for Depression and Anxiety

A lack of healthy air not only has a significant effect on physical health but also on mental health. Green space is widely understood to be health-promoting in residential environments, and has been linked to mental health benefits and reduced stress.17

Research18 from Aarhus University in Denmark also suggests access to green spaces may have a protective effect in the long term, as children growing up close to nature are less likely to develop mental health problems as adults, including depression and anxiety.

Living in a city space has been associated with higher risk of some psychiatric disorders without identification of underlying cause. In this study, green space was assessed using high resolution satellite data of the area around the participants' place of residence from birth to age 10.19

The data show the risk for mental illness for those who had the lowest level of green space was up to 55 percent higher than those who had the highest level of green space. The effect also appeared to be cumulative, as there was a stronger association between mental health and cumulative years with access to green spaces during childhood as compared to a single year.

Indoor Air Pollution Nothing to Sneeze At

Symptoms of exposure to indoor air pollution resemble those you may experience from an allergy or a cold, such as20 worsening asthma; itchy, watery eyes; headaches; dizziness; fatigue; and runny nose. These typically disappear once you leave the problem area. Chronic exposure over a longer period of time, however, may result in more chronic and serious health conditions.

Phthalates are one common contaminant found in indoor air pollution, a chemical added to plastics to improve durability and found in literally hundreds of products in American homes. Research indicates phthalates are carcinogenic and have been linked to reproductive problems, nervous system issues and immune suppression.21

The American Academy of Pediatrics,22 a group of over 65,000 pediatricians in the U.S., is asking parents to limit children's exposure to dangerous plastic chemicals, including phthalates, warning the chemicals may damage their children's health for years to come.

In a panel discussion at the latest American Association for the Advancement of Science conference,23 researchers presented data demonstrating pollutants are released into your home from everyday activities such as cooking and cleaning, and from household items like furniture and carpeting.

Researchers used an uninhabited 1,200 square-foot home on the University of Texas campus. Over 30 days, they performed a variety of household activities while measuring indoor concentrations of air pollution.

To the team's surprise, indoor concentrations were high enough that instrumentation needed to be recalibrated almost immediately. Marina Vance, Ph.D., an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at CU Boulder, commented on the results:24

"Homes have never been considered an important source of outdoor air pollution and the moment is right to start exploring that. We wanted to know: How do basic activities like cooking and cleaning change the chemistry of a house? Even the simple act of making toast raised particle levels far higher than expected. We had to go adjust many of the instruments."

Another study undertaken by Heather Stapleton, Ph.D., one of the foremost experts in the field of fire retardant chemicals, studied children in their homes, analyzing samples of dust in air, as well as blood in urine samples from the children.25

From this information they found children who lived in homes where the sofa in the main living area contained polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) had six times higher concentration of the chemicals in their blood than children whose sofa did not contain the chemicals.

What Can You Do to Reduce Your Risk From Air Pollution?

While you may not have control over the air pollution in your neighborhood, you have some control over the air quality in your home. For a discussion of action steps to consider to reduce your health risks from indoor pollution see my previous article, "Reduce Indoor Air Pollution."

Research26 shows improving air quality also benefits your mental health by reducing "psychological distress."27 Many of the strategies discussed in my previous article are very cost-effective in the short run and may help significantly reduce your health care costs long-term.

Health coach Luke Coutinho stresses the importance of nutritional strategies to reduce the burden air pollution has on your health. While it continues to be important to avoid air pollution as much as possible and to lower the pollution levels in your home, also consider the following strategies to support detoxification:28

Eat a diet rich in nutritious, whole foods — Eating a rainbow of fruits and vegetables helps you ingest a wide range of antioxidant nutrients, many of which help your body remove toxins and reduce the effects of inflammation. Foods high in antioxidants help you meet nutritional deficiencies triggered by air pollution. Since your body uses these antioxidants to protect itself from toxins, you need a diet high in antioxidants to avoid deficiencies.

Green vegetables have chlorophyll that help rid your body of environmental toxins and pesticides. At the same time it's important to stay hydrated to help your body with elimination and to reduce or eliminate sugar, processed foods and alcohol.

Bromelain — If you're faced with congestion and upper respiratory symptoms from air pollution, consider taking bromelain or pineapple extract as it helps improve respiratory function. Bromelain is a nonenzymatic ingredient known for the ability to inhibit inflammation.

Curry — Curcumin is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound present in turmeric used in curry. In one study,29 researchers measured respiratory function in nearly 2,500 older Chinese adults and found a diet rich in curry appeared to protect lung function in smokers.

Coutinho believes the base of most of your meal preparation should come from garlic, onion, ginger and turmeric to take advantage of the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of these foods.


           Can't Get Away Club       Cache   Translate Page      
<blurb>…</blurb>

<div class="author-info"><b>Deanne Stephens, University of Southern Mississippi</b></div><div class="article-content"><body><page>
<div>The Can't Get Away Club was a civic organization that formed in <a type="nge_article" href="h-1794">Mobile</a>, <a type="nge_article" href="h-1332">Mobile County</a>, in 1839 to address the suffering caused by a <a type="nge_article" href="h-3990">yellow fever</a> outbreak in the city. Its members chose the name for their choice to stay in the city during the epidemic, unlike many who fled if they were able during outbreaks. Club members continued to provide services and funds to stricken citizens in subsequent outbreaks until the last epidemic in Mobile in 1897.</div>
<div> Yellow fever, a tropical and subtropical acute viral disease resulting from mosquito bites, plagued the South almost annually. It often resulted in severe aches, fever, and jaundice, thus the reason for its name—yellow fever. Nursing care was critical to victims' recovery. Yellow fever had first appeared in that region in the 1700s during <a type="nge_article" href="h-1102">French</a> colonization and continued to suffer in Mobile until 1897, when the last yellow fever epidemic struck Alabama. </div>
<div> When yellow fever struck Mobile in 1839, a group of civic-minded business owners, lawyers, and other notable citizens recognized the need for a centralized organization to help yellow fever victims, regardless of social, economic, or political standing. The sick required physicians, nurses, and provisional care whenever epidemics struck. At this time, only a couple of physicians were available, and nursing care was too expensive for most in the city to afford—upwards to $10.00 per day. During their regular luncheon meeting at the Alhambra Club at Dauphin and Royal Streets, a popular downtown establishment, these merchants, bankers, bookkeepers, dry-goods clerks, and lawyers decided to collect funds to meet the needs of suffering Mobilians. </div>
<div> These philanthropists decided to create a yellow fever relief association solely for the citizens of Mobile. The original members of the club decided upon the name because they opened membership to any white man in the city who "could not get away" from Mobile during an epidemic. Women and African Americans were not permitted, however. Despite the name, the associates were not, in fact, trying to abandon Mobile; they believed it their duty to serve its citizens. The name became official, and the organization elected city official John Hurtel as its first president and quickly elected a full slate of officers from the attendees. </div>
<div> </div>
<div> The Can't-Get-Away Club originally appropriated $300 to offer monetary help to the needy during the epidemic and established boards in each of the city's districts. Since few physicians were available at that time and nursing care was often expensive, many in the city were without medical care. Provisions were also difficult to procure because commerce usually ceased during epidemics as storeowners shuttered their establishments or quarantine lines prohibited trade. Therefore, this group decided that the association would hire physicians and nurses to care for the sick and dying in the epidemic, arrange grocery deliveries, and even attend to burials. They gathered a storehouse of goods and opened it to citizens in need of food, clothing, and fuel. It would become a vital distribution point for Mobilians. The club even created employment for those left jobless during the epidemic in order to ensure that family breadwinners received paychecks. Street maintenance was the most common employment arranged for those who worked for the Can't Get Away Club. </div>
<div> John Hurtel was representative of the members of the Can't Get Away Club. Arriving in Mobile in the early 1820s from New York, he quickly enmeshed himself into the city's political and social activities. He married Eliza Noel, from St. Domingo. In his lifetime, he served as president of the Franco-Latin Democratic Club in Mobile and was a Port Warden for the <a type="nge_article" href="h-3196">city docks</a>. He also volunteered on the Mobile School Commission to foster public education in the city and Mobile County. At various times before his death in 1869, he was a judge in the circuit and municipal courts and a member of the Board of Common Council (Alderman) for the city. He was also a Ward V election Inspector/Returning Officer for the 1868 United States presidential and vice presidential elections and a commissioner for the Alabama State Lottery in 1868. He served several terms as president of the Can't Get Away Club. </div>
<div> The Club rallied during every epidemic in Mobile after its creation in 1839. It proved vital in Mobile's worst epidemic, the 1853 outbreak. Carried from New Orleans via shipping, yellow fever spread quickly throughout the city, including Spring Hill, an area at the time believed to be safe. Seeking refuge there was <a type="nge_article" href="h-1484">Josiah Clark Nott</a> and his family. Nott, a prominent physician of the city and early proponent of an insect vector theory to explain how yellow fever spread, suffered the loss of four children during this epidemic. In all, approximately 764 citizens succumbed to yellow fever that year. Throughout the fever months, the Can't Get Away Club members provided both medical and provisional aide to those in need. </div>
<div> In 1854, the Club incorporated through an act of the Alabama legislature, with Gov. <a type="nge_article" href="h-1621">John A. Winston</a> signing the law. More than likely, the role the Can't Get Away Club played in the epidemic of 1853 inspired this action. The club members created a constitution and by-laws governing its charitable and benevolent purposes and clearly stated in Article XII that no member could receive any remuneration for serving in the organization. Citizens of Mobile called its supporters heroes and honored them. In <a type="nge_article" href="h-1105">Magnolia Cemetery</a>, families buried many of its members in a lot specially designated for them. This organization was an example of civic engagement in sustaining all Mobilians in yellow fever epidemics, regardless of race or social standing. In 1897, the city experienced the last of its yellow fever epidemics. The philanthropic and medical outreach of the Can't Get Away Club was no longer necessary to the health of its citizens. The last member, the Reverend Gardiner C. Tucker, rector of St. John's Episcopal Church in Mobile, died in 1941.</div></page></body></div><div class="publish-info">Published:&nbsp&nbsp<b>March 13, 2019</b>&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp|&nbsp&nbsp&nbspLast updated:&nbsp&nbsp<b>March 13, 2019</b></div> <div class="printthis-button"><a target="_blank" href="h-4081?printable=true"><img src="/sites/default/themes/mythemes/acq_my_theme/images/printthis-button.png"></a></div><div class="ref_links"><h2>External Links:</h2><p><a href="/%20https%3A//mobilebaymag.com/the-cant-get-away-club/" target="_blank">Mobile Bay Magazine: The Can&#039;t Get Away Club</a></p></div>


          The Roosevelt New Orleans Hotel Is Celebrating Its 125th Anniversary by Giving 1 Guest a $15,000 Prize      Cache   Translate Page

          Something Read, Something Dead by Eva Gates      Cache   Translate Page      
I'll admit I dropped Eva Gates' cozy Lighthouse Library Mystery series for a little while. Perhaps it was just my own over-indulgence in cozy mysteries right then. But, Something Read, Something Dead was an enjoyable mystery. And, Lucy Richardson didn't bother me in this one as she did in an earlier book. Lucy has come into her own. For a little while, she was too submissive for my taste.

Lucy and her friends enjoy the plans for Josie O'Malley's wedding. Josie is Lucy's favorite cousin, and owner of a bakery in Nags Head, North Carolina on the Outer Banks. Then, Josie's grandmother and the New Orleans relatives descend on the town. Josie can't stand the fuss, and her cousin Mirabella's outrageous attempts to take over the wedding plans. She's hiding in her bakery to avoid turning into bridezilla. But, Lucy's still holding Josie's wedding shower at the lighthouse library. There will be friends from the community, and the over-the-top relatives with their own demands for special food.

That turns out to be the sticking point. When Mirabella dies, Josie is the primary suspect because she made a special plate of food for her. Now, Josie's bakery is closed while the police investigate. The local police have been sidelined by the state police, so Lucy turns sleuth. She knows the locals, and she can get more information than the state police.

The wedding and murder investigation aren't the only problem. The historic lighthouse library, Lucy's home and place of employment, has a crack in the wall, and the cost to fix it may be more than the community can afford. Even Lucy's relationship with the mayor is a little rocky because of the lighthouse problem.

I'll admit I was more interested in the problems with the lighthouse than the murder mystery aspect. I didn't like or care about the victim. I do care about libraries. But, that's my personal bias about a situation in this cozy mystery.

If you haven't read this series yet, and are a fan of Miranda James,  Eva Gates' books feature a library, a cat, and an appealing location. Check it out.

Learning to Love the Fens: An Introduction to Romanticism, Ecology, and Pedagogy

Bridget Keegan, Creighton University
James C. McKusick, University of Montana


                            . . . what we have loved,
Others will love, and we will teach them how
William Wordsworth, The Prelude, 1850 (14: 448-9)


  1. As teachers, we always have designs upon our students, whether it is a set of skills we want them to master, a body of content we believe they should assimilate, or, in some cases, values that we wish to cultivate and nurture in them. It is usually quite simple for us to articulate what those designs are. We want our students to write well and to know historical context. And often too, though usually implicitly, we want them to love what we have loved.  Most of us teach literature because we believe that it has inherent value. We believe that poetry matters, that it is relevant, and that such value and relevance is transcendent regardless of the immediate material conditions in which we teach and students learn.

  2. At the end of The Prelude, Wordsworth confidently states that we will teach others to love what we have loved. Yet in this poem about the poet's own education and vocational training, he neglects to tell us precisely how to do this.  Lacking Wordsworth's confidence, many of us in literature and humanities departments may often wonder how best to convince students that literature matters at all—and what's more, that poetry from what students consider a "remote" historical era matters. How effective are we at communicating the value of literature to students, particularly when students are more and more likely to understand any subject's value in more crudely economic terms?  To put it more explicitly in terms of the core issues of this special number of Romantic Circles Pedagogy Commons: When students are more worried about getting a decent job after graduation (often in order to be able to pay back loans taken out to cover their rapidly rising tuitions), what chance do teachers have of convincing them that an aesthetic engagement with nature, either directly or through literature, is worth their time? How best to respond, when students, along with Mary Oliver, ask: "Is a poem, which after all is only a literary construct within an imagined framework, a reasonable way to understand the world?" (103).
  3. Of course it is, Oliver goes on to reply. But why is it? And how is it a reasonable way to understand the world?  In the prospectus for the Romantic Circles Pedagogy Commons Series, editor Laura Mandell sketches the goals for these online essays and resources—to emphasize not only the "what" of our teaching, but also the "how."  Although the essays represented here emphasize and illustrate the "how" of improving students' skills at explicating a poem or helping them to understand Romanticism's contribution to the history of modern environmentalism, it is around the issue of values that we as editors feel that these essays collectively raise their most important points. These essays will help us as teachers to demonstrate that a poem is "a reasonable way to understand the world."  And they may also help us to teach students to love what we have loved.

  4. The essays in this collection offer varied and complementary approaches to the issue of values in the teaching of Romantic poetry and prose. Gary Harrison, for example, in his course on "Romanticism, Nature, Ecology" engages students in a fundamental interrogation of the present value and relevance of Romantic-era texts. In Harrison's course, students are encouraged to examine "how such literature shapes environmental consciousness and action, and how Romantic poetry engages urgent issues that face us today about the relationship between human consciousness and nature."  Toni Wein likewise seeks to engage her students in a thorough scrutiny of personal values from the first day of class, when they receive a homework assignment asking them to write a descriptive essay on their "sacred place."  Wein elucidates the underlying purpose of such an assignment: "I wanted the students to feel doubly immersed or invested, both in the perspective we would bring to bear and in the generous enthusiasm Romantic writers expressed for their home lands."

  5. While it may be unfashionable or politically tendentious to talk about values in education, we would argue that the discussion of values has taken on a greater urgency in the current educational climate in the United States, Canada, and the U.K. This is due to the fact that, increasingly, the values that universities—from students to the highest-level administrators—seem to care most about are primarily economic values. As James Engell and Anthony Dangerfield argue, in their remarkable book Saving Higher Education in the Age of Money, "The fastest-expanding and often strongest motivation in American higher education is now money. While other aims and functions certainly persist, they are increasingly eclipsed by the ultimate goal of wealth accumulation" (2). In short, money has become an end in itself in education, and not simply a means to an end. Engell and Dangerfield's book is an erudite call to action, one that provides an important history and set of recommendations for teachers and scholars who wish to protect the values traditionally celebrated in education (such as becoming a good and informed citizen of the world) against the increasing pressure to measure value in strictly financial terms.

  6. For those of us in the academy who feel that what David Abram has called the "more than human world" is valuable as more than a resource to be bought, sold, harvested, mined, tapped, consolidated, ploughed under, reclaimed, or developed, Engell and Dangerfield's book is instructive reading, making a case for all of those in the humanities, and not simply those teaching and studying environmentally, to reclaim the discourse on values. Those of us who teach and study environmental literature are, in some respects, in a privileged position to demonstrate the practical as well as more abstract non-financial values and importance of literature. Many of the essays included in this collection make this point either implicitly or explicitly. In being alert to the environmental dimensions of the texts we teach and study, we are able to show that literature does have a very clear and direct connection to "the real world"—and that connection is more than nominal or spiritual. As Lawrence Buell has written in the Preface to his recent manifesto, The Future of Environmental Criticism, the role of the humanities is crucial to understanding and resolving our current environmental crises:

    For technological breakthroughs, legislative reforms, and paper covenants about environmental welfare to take effect, or even to be generated in the first place, requires a climate of transformed environmental values, perception, and will. To that end, the power of story, image, and artistic performance and the resources of aesthetics, ethics, and cultural theory are crucial. (vi)

    Buell's book provides a solid overview of the history of the many strands of the "movement" of environmental criticism to date, and these different strands are illustrated by the various approaches and tactics demonstrated in the following essays. Buell concludes by offering a cautious "prophecy" about where environmental approaches to literary studies may go during the remainder of the 21st century. As he rightly notes, the future of environmental criticism—and perhaps even the future of the environment writ large—depends on our success as teachers of environmental literature and environmental approaches to texts.

  7. All of the essays in this collection are closely engaged with practical aspects of teaching environmental literature of the Romantic period, and they should prove useful to both new and experienced teachers in a variety of classroom settings. Tilar Mazzeo examines the implications of teaching Romanticism outside the disciplinary boundaries of English studies; Timothy Ziegenhagen investigates how Romantic poetry can be used to frame the contemporary debate between developers, conservationists, and preservationists; and William Stroup challenges his students to explore what he calls the "field marks" of poetry. Several of these essays describe innovative ways to engage students in the experience of reading Romanticism; thus Timothy Brownlow seeks to create a more invigorating classroom environment through a restoration of orality and a revival of sensuousness, while Thomas Hothem urges his students to scrutinize the topographical subtexts and hidden agendas of popular anthologies of Romanticism. Scott Hess encourages his students to broaden their conception of what "nature" means, both in Romantic poetry and in their own personal experience: "Nature, I want to teach them, is not something we simply return to or escape to; it is the total network of relationships within which we must actively negotiate our places, and it includes the human as well as the non-human." Both inside and outside of the classroom, teachers of Romantic-era environmental literature are finding new ways to engage their students in discovering and responding to real-world environmental issues.

  8. The question remains, however: what is it in particular about teaching Romantic-period writers that is essential to the goal of instilling the values of environmental awareness or even environmental activism?  How can teachers help students to appreciate the value of literature over and against—or at least perhaps alongside of—the very real demands they may feel to justify their studies and interests in financial terms? To begin to answer that question, one can immediately point to the fact that many Romantic writers believed, with passion, sincerity, and sometimes with righteous self-delusion, that words (as much as cold hard cash) can and do change the world. Percy Bysshe Shelley memorably called upon the West Wind to "Scatter, as from an unextinguished hearth / Ashes and sparks, my words among mankind!" ("Ode to the West Wind," lines 66-67).

  9. Thus, perhaps the first step might be to remind students about the power of words. All too often, when they first encounter Romantic writing, and in particular Romantic nature writing, students struggle with it because they feel it is "just description"—just so many words piled on words. Thus, it is often one of our first aims when we teach Romantic nature writing to demonstrate that what a poet chooses to describe, and how s/he describes it, inflects that description with an ethical and political relevance, particularly with respect to environmental ethics and politics.

  10. For both of the editors of this collection, the poetry of John Clare has been a typical starting point to help students see that representation, particularly when it is a representation of nature, is never a transparent act. There is often a very important story being told in what is described and in how it is described. In one class, for instance, we might start with one of Clare's later poems, "The Fens."  The poem begins conventionally enough, with the poet describing what he sees while "Wandering by the rivers edge."  The poet fondly evokes the play of the waterfowl and the movement of willows in a way that students might initially take to be "just description."  However, it is useful to talk with students about the fact that Clare's perspective in the poem is not the typically elevated vantage point, looking down over what he describes (as was conventional in poetry like that of James Thomson, one of Clare's most significant poetic precursors). Clare here and elsewhere puts himself "on the same level" as what he describes, and students might be asked to consider to what extent that stance might be connected to Clare's social position. They might discuss how such a gesture suggests an ethical or political statement about the relationship between the human and the natural, challenging the more hierarchical and anthropocentric conceptions common in Clare's day.

  11. However, in teaching this poem in particular, it is important to remind students that Clare is representing a wetland environment. Thus, there is an entirely practical and literal reason why he doesn't "elevate" himself in his looking at the environment. In the relentlessly flat landscape of the fens, there simply aren't any hills or elevated places from which he could have taken in the scene:

    But here my fancys moods admire
    The naked levels till they tire
    Nor een a molehill cushion meets
    To rest on when I want a seat. (65-8)

    At this point it is useful to remind students that in Clare's time as in our own, wetlands were seen as essentially "unproductive" and even threatening or physically dangerous environments (for instance, causing the "fen ague" or malaria from which both Clare and his family suffered). In fact, Clare is one of the very first poets in the Western literary tradition to depict wetlands in a positive light. Students may already be aware that the archetypal monsters of English literature, Grendel and his mother, are creatures of the swamps. Likewise, Bunyan's Slough of Despond uses the wetlands as a site of allegorical moral peril. To demonstrate the novelty of Clare's description, it is useful to tell students about the history of wetland drainage in East Anglia, which began on a grand scale in the seventeenth century, and also to show students selections from Arthur Young's writing about the very same environments that Clare represents. Young comments pithily about the draining and enclosing of the fens, in The Agriculture of the County of Lincoln (1799): "So wild a country nurses up a race of people as wild as the fen; and thus the morals and eternal welfare of numbers are hazarded or ruined for want of an inclosure" (qtd. in Darby, 154). Once drained, reclaimed, and redeemed, the end result was "Health improved, morals corrected and the community enriched" (qtd in Darby, 142).

  12. For Clare, however, as is evident in the second half of "The Fens," the draining of the fens for profit prior to enclosing them is devastating rather than productive, and thus the poem illustrates how economic value has become preeminent, usurping all other sets of values, including those derived from an aesthetic engagement with nature. As Clare writes:

    Green paddocks have but little charms
    With gain the merchandise of farms
    And muse and marvel where we may
    Gain mars the landscape every day (81-4)

    Although this landscape is one that challenges the conventional pastoral aesthetics, it is nonetheless still one whose unconventional beauty transcends the reductive calculus of those seeking only gain.  From there, it may be possible to engage students more directly in discussing the ways in which poetry, literature and aesthetic engagement are still devalued by a society driven even more than in Clare's day by demands for "productivity."  One might even then talk with students about how their own education, structured to make them (fiscally) "productive" individuals, does not hold a love of nature in and for itself—let alone poetry about such a thing—in very high regard.

  13. In raising the issue of the place of nature, and of poetry about nature, in the present educational system, one might bring up Clare's own relationship to his education, both formal and informal. Students will likely be curious about Clare's style and diction (which is more or less apparent depending on which edition of Clare's poetry is being used—and students could be directed to Simon Kövesi's excellent John Clare website with information on the controversy). It is useful to point out to students that Clare's language, as much as the subject he elects to describe, also challenges conventional notions of natural description. Clare's diction reflects his status as a laboring-class provincial subject. As students are quick to realize, Clare's experiences as someone who was forced to work the land will be distinct from the experiences of those who view the landscape simply for pleasure.  His "day job" affects his relationship to nature and how he wrote about nature. One might then ask students to consider how the demands placed upon them to enter certain acceptable "day jobs" affect their own ability to think about their place in the more-than-human world and about their ability to enjoy nature and the poetry that celebrates it.

  14. Clare's poems can teach us how to love landscapes like the fens. If it is possible to do so without seeming to be profiting from disaster, discussing with students the issue of learning how to love wetlands is something that, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, would perhaps also show students how Romantic nature poetry is connected to the real world, and to their world. Many scientists believe that had the wetlands around New Orleans been better preserved, they would have served as a protective barrier, absorbing the water that ended up flooding the city. Recent articles found at news websites for MSNBC, the BBC, and the Guardian make this connection clear.

  15. However, on the Gulf Coast and in Florida, as well as in other places around the country the economically-driven desire to make wetland areas or other "waste" spaces "productive" has destroyed important ecosystems (although today it is more likely by turning them into strip malls than into arable fields). How much money—how many lives—might have been saved if the long-term value—both economic and aesthetic—of the wetlands of Louisiana had been understood?  How many times will we have to be shown the unsustainable practice of making calculations based on only short-term monetary gains?

  16. Even in the face of seemingly intractable circumstances, Clare writes in protest against enclosure, giving voice to neglected landscapes and endangered creatures. While Clare's poetry did not eradicate the greed of the enclosers, or halt the "progress" of agribusiness, his poetry remains an act of preservation and positive protest, commemorating long-vanished vistas and offering a warning to respect the more-than-human world that is still worthy of being heard today. His work is a hortatory meditation on the value of nature and of poetry about nature. One can thus suggest that Clare's poetry is just description—description that aspires to a higher level of justice, rather than just or merely description. Clare's words, like the words of other writers about nature, are explicitly connected to "the real world" in their effort to depict it. And these words can remind us what in this real world should be of real and lasting value to us, even in the face of the preponderance of the culture of money that surrounds us and our students.

Romanticism and Buddhism

About This Volume

This volume of Romantic Circles Praxis Series includes an editor's introduction by Mark Lussier, essays by Louise Economides, Timothy Morton, John Rudy, Dennis McCort, and a poem by Norman Dubie.

The genesis of this collection began with seemingly simple questions the editor asked of himself (and occasionally others), and the works appearing in this volume represent answers offered by insightful and engaged colleagues: "What's going on with Buddhism during the Romantic period? Can and should academic and spiritual practices be unified and interrelated, thereby helping heal an artificially conditioned alienation common within the increasingly corporate academy?" Each one of the essays in this volume argues in different yet interrelated ways for a shared view in Buddhism and Romanticism of forms of suffering created by the self and of the freedom from suffering found in self-annihilation. Emptiness resides in plenitude and solitude, the problematic path for Buddhists and Romanticists alike.

About the Romantic Circles Praxis Series

The Romantic Circles Praxis Series is devoted to using computer technologies for the contemporary critical investigation of the languages, cultures, histories, and theories of Romanticism. Tracking the circulation of Romanticism within these interrelated domains of knowledge, RCPS recognizes as its conceptual terrain a world where Romanticism has, on the one hand, dissolved as a period and an idea into a plurality of discourses and, on the other, retained a vigorous, recognizable hold on the intellectual and theoretical discussions of today. RCPS is committed to mapping out this terrain with the best and mo st exciting critical writing of contemporary Romanticist scholarship.
