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

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


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

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

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


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

The Mets picked him up in 1968 for AAA depth, and he also played for the Royals' AAA team from 1969-71. Sorrell managed to see action in 57 games for the Royals in 1970, which is why this card exists. He finished up with 2 years in Japan (1972-73).
          Steve Barber (#477)      Cache   Translate Page      
Orioles' starting pitcher Steve Barber is shown about to enter his last full season with Baltimore. Barber played 8 of his 14 seasons with the Orioles, from his MLB debut in 1960 to his July 1967 trade to the Yankees. While with the O's, he was one of the few players to wear #13.

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


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

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

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

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

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

Barber passed away in 2007 at age 68.
          Ray Oyler (#81)      Cache   Translate Page      
Here is good-field/no-hit Ray Oyler's first solo card. (And when I say "no-hit", I mean NOOOOO-hit.) Before there was the "Mendoza Line", there was the "Oyler Line" (although no one was clever enough to come up with that at the time, to my knowledge).

Ray joined the Tigers in 1965 and hit .186, which turned out to be his 2nd-highest season average. Except for an aberration where he hit .207 in 1967, he never broke the .175 barrier again (much less .200).


That was all well and good in '65 and '66 when Ray was the team's backup middle infielder, but by 1967 veteran 2nd baseman Jerry Lumpe's career was running out of gas, and he was only used as a pinch-hitter for most of his final season. Incumbent shortstop Dick McAuliffe moved over to replace him, which thrust Oyler into the starting lineup for 125 games. On the plus side, Ray boosted his average 36 points over the .171 in 1966.

With Lumpe retired, Oyler started 44 of the first 50 games at short in 1968, but by early June, manager Mayo Smith had seen enough, and switched to a tandem of veteran utility man Dick Tracewski and rookie Tom Matchick. This continued until the season’s final week, when Smith decided to fix the shortstop position by moving center fielder Mickey Stanley in there (for the first time in his career). After a 6-game warmup at his new position, Stanley played there during the '68 World Series, which essentially replaced Oyler’s bat with Al Kaline’s bat!

Oyler did get into 4 World Series games (1 plate appearance), but was exposed to the expansion draft after the season.

Ray was selected by the Seattle Pilots, and started 93 games for them in 1969, mostly in the first 4 months until younger players started getting tryouts. While in Seattle, Oyler had an unusual fan club.

After the season, Oyler and pitcher Diego Segui were traded to the Athletics for infielder Ted Kubiak and pitcher George Lauzerique. Ray's final card is in the 1970 set as an Athletic, but he didn't get a chance to play for them. He was sold to the Angels in mid-April, and finished out his final season playing only 24 games for California, while batting a career-low .083.

Ray was a player-coach in the minors during the '71 and '72 seasons, then retired.

He died in 1981 from a heart attack at age 42.
           Comment on Should You Allow Pets in Your Rentals? by Kevin McGuire       Cache   Translate Page      
Agree that an extra security deposit can be positioned in a reasonable manner. I find "pet rent" to be arbitrary though since there's no obvious ongoing operational cost one is recouping. Security deposit can clearly be linked to actual maintenance bills when preparing the unit for the next renter. Pet rent by contrast feels like a random money grab on the part of the landlord. I live in a condo building and the board had considered pet rent to cover extra maintenance costs. The discussion was heated, especially here in dog friendly Seattle, and the arbitrariness became quickly apparent ("I always take my dog out through the garage, why do I have to pay extra to clean the lobby?". "I have a 5lb dog and carry her out"). The proposal died quickly and in the end only generated animosity. I mention this because I think it's representative of people's feelings about the topic but which a renter may never voice since the landlord is in control. As a landlord I want my charges to the tenants to be fair and predictable to them, and I expect reasonableness in return on their part.

March is Music in Our Schools Month in SPS as Superintendent Juneau writes in her journal.  As well, a local group, the Newcombe Foundation has a program for getting musical instruments to students in need in some areas of the Puget Sound region including Seattle.  Their deadline for application is April 30th.

In the news:

It's news but it's not surprising news.  Apparently, via an owner of a for-profit Newport Beach college admissions company, there was quite the number people, including celebrities, trying to buy their way into colleges and universities by having test scores changed and/or having others take the test for their child and/or getting accommodations that a child wasn't truly eligible to have.  Truly disgusting. 

From the LA Times:
The scheme, which began in 2011, centered around the owner of a for-profit Newport Beach college admissions company that wealthy parents paid to help their children cheat on college entrance exams and to falsify athletic records of students to enable them to secure admission to elite schools, including UCLA, USC, Stanford, Yale and Georgetown, according to court records.

Prosecutors allege that Singer instructed parents to donate funds to a fake charity he had established as part of the scheme. Most of the parents paid at least $200,000, but some spent up to $6.5 million to guarantee their children admission to top universities, authorities said. The parents were then able to deduct the donation from their income taxes, according to the Internal Revenue Service.

“Make no mistake: This is not a case where parents were acting in the best interests of their children. This is a case where they flaunted their wealth, sparring no expense, to cheat the system so they could set their children up for success with the best education money could buy, literally,” Bonavolonta said. “Their actions were without a doubt insidious, selfish and shameful. And the real victims in the case are the hardworking students who did everything they could to set themselves up for success in the college admissions process, but ended up being shut out because far less qualified students and their families simply bought their way in.”
 As was stated on Twitter:
"A good day to remember that there are black and brown parents who are sitting in prison today because they listed a relative’s address as their own for the chance of their child receiving an adequate public school education."

From The Atlantic, an thought-provoking story about explaining that your kid is going to trade school, not college.
This shift in the job and education markets can leave parents feeling unsure about the career path their children choose to pursue. Lack of knowledge and misconceptions about the trades can lead parents to steer their kids away from these programs, when vocational training might be a surer path to a stable job.

           Comment on NWMLS: Home prices are falling and inventory is soaring, but pending sales are bouncing back by Matt P       Cache   Translate Page      
By <a href='#comment-279406' rel="nofollow">Eastsider @ 891</a>:<blockquote>By <a href='#comment-279400' rel="nofollow">Matt P @ 885</a>:<blockquote> I did say for me, though, maybe not for everyone. I'd be using a VA loan, so no down payment to lose. Everyone should run their own numbers.</blockquote> Haha... VA loan! Yes, in that case, you have little or no risk if you default (except your credit.) But you have significant upside if home price appreciates, even marginally. I can see why buying a home makes sense for you. VA loans are heavily subsidized to the detriment of its own financial health.</blockquote> Why to the detriment? VA loans have the lowest default rates. But putting aside the special case of VA loans, it still all comes down to price appreciation: flat or negative - bad time to buy. Slightly up 3% or more, good time to buy. We just don't know which it will be. 3% appreciation on a 700k house is $21k per year, with a 20% down payment that is a 15% return on your down payment a year. After 10 years with no extra payments, you'll also have paid down the loan 20% roughly, so with the inflated sales price of 940k, loan principle leftover of $448k, you make about $450k profit depending on transaction costs. You then just have to figure the difference between owning the house per month vs renting with opportunity costs. $1k cheaper per month over 10 years is $120k plus the $140k down. The 140k principle with $1k invested each month with a 7% return gives you $455k over 10 years, basically a wash. So anything above historical price growth of 3% on houses means better to buy. Of course this assumes a steady $1k difference between buy and rent but rent generally increases faster than property taxes do on an absolute basis - other than taxes, mortgages stay the same and become cheaper vis a vis inflation over the long run. We also shouldn't consider special situations like dariakus where he found a below market value rental. He should stay because it's a better deal, but considering non outliers ie market level rent, no VA loan, then price inflation of 3% or more still signals buy even in Seattle.

<b>RE:</b> <a href='#comment-279393' rel="nofollow">Matt P @ 878</a> - Rent vs. buy calculators are great for long term investment, but they're not accounting for several things. For me, primarily, it's location. It's not possible to buy anything in the area I live and come out of the transaction with a mortgage payment anywhere near as low as my current rent. Quality of life has a dollar value on it, and that fluctuates from person to person, but it's definitely got a value. Is buying a house worthwhile if it increases your daily job commute by an hour? What if you've got an established life in a specific area and in order to buy you'd not only have to increase your work commute, but also forego all of your extracurricular activities and other things? Rents go up and down, my salary will go up and down, but that house an hour away from my current life will never get closer. I'm renting a 5 bedroom house in Kirkland for under $3000, with a courteous and generous landlord who's only increasing rent by $100 a year. She's got the house paid off and loves us as tenants since we're pretty low maintenance. To get a mortgage even *close* to $3000 on a comparable-sized house and lot, I'd have to move out to Lake Stevens in the north or Kent in the south. Or I'd have to cash out my 401k. With work in Redmond and the rest of life split between Bellevue and Seattle, moving that far away just to say I own something is a very bad investment. Is there a good chance I'd come out ahead financially in 10 years? Of course. But what a miserable hit to my current way of life.

They were supposed to be together forever. That was the plan, but through a cruel twist of fate the night before their three-year anniversary, Tex Davis lost the one man he would ever love, Memphis King. A year has passed and he still hasn’t been able to move on. Everyone tells him it’s time, but what do they know? Memphis was his partner in love and life. Losing him, broke Tex.

Tex has been given an opportunity to move from New York to Seattle. His friends and family are encouraging him to take it, but he has already decided to decline the offer because that would mean leaving Memphis behind. 

Then something happened. 

Whether it be fate or something else, Memphis came back to him. Tex’s first love is supposed to help him move on, but not even Memphis can bring himself to force Tex to let him go. 

Is it so wrong to want to spend forever with the person you loved most? Both hearts are begging to be unbroken.



Tagline:
Two broken hearts, one wandering soul.

Maria Vickers currently lives in St. Louis, MO with her pug, Spencer Tracy. She has always had a passion for writing and after she became disabled in 2010, she decided to use writing as her escape. She believes that life is about what you make of it. You have to live it to the fullest no matter the circumstances.

From a young age, she has always loved books and even dreamed of being an author when she was younger. Growing up in the Navy, she used to weave tales for her siblings and her friends about anything and everything. And when she wasn't creating her own stories, she had a book in her hand. They transported her to another world. She hopes that with her books, her readers have the same experience and that they can relate to her characters.

Getting sick changed her life forever, but it also opened doors for her that she thought would always be out of reach.

          2nd Crash Of Boeing 737 Max 8 Leaves Flying Public Concerned       Cache   Translate Page      
Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit STEVE INSKEEP, HOST: An aviation analyst tells NPR today he's making fine distinctions about the Boeing 737. After a type of 737 called a MAX 8 crashed on two occasions, he said he would avoid certain planes but fly others. He even said he might fly himself but would be reluctant to bring his family. If that's the thinking of an expert, what's on the minds of the flying public? Here's NPR's Eric Westervelt. ERIC WESTERVELT, BYLINE: Some two dozen airlines around the globe have grounded their Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes following the deadly crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia. At Oakland International Airport, Lynn Tsumoto, just off a Southwest flight from Seattle, asked why Southwest and American, the biggest U.S. operators of the MAX 8, haven't done the same out of an abundance of caution. LYNN TSUMOTO: Well, I'm wondering why they don't when all the other airlines - the majority of airlines - are. WESTERVELT: You'd like them to hit pause. TSUMOTO:

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

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

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

Jets from 80/1 to 60/1

Redskins from 80/1 to 66/1

Bears from 16/1 to 12/1

Raiders from 65/1 to 50/1

Eagles from 16/1 to 14/1

Ravens from 26/1 to 18/1

Bet Now

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

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

 


          Mar 27: El Sueño Americano / The American Dream      Cache   Translate Page      

The Library Gallery presents El Sueño Americano / The American Dream, an exhibition of works by Arizona-based artist Tom Kiefer featuring 59 photographs of everyday objects carried by migrants across the United States border with Mexico that were subsequently confiscated or forfeited at a Customs and Border Control facility in southern Arizona. Considered non-essential and thus discarded, these personal belongings — from gloves to rosaries and wallets to water bottles — were valued by their owners for their utilitarian, personal, or sentimental value. In Kiefer’s graphically striking photographs, these personal items serve as traces of individual human stories. “My intent,” says the artist, “is to explore the humanity of the migrants who risk their lives crossing through the desert and to create a personal connection for the viewer to a migrant and their hope for a better life.”

Born in Wichita, Kansas, fine art photographer Tom Kiefer was raised primarily in the Seattle area and worked in Los Angeles as a graphic designer. Kiefer moved to Ajo, Arizona in December 2001 to fully develop and concentrate his efforts in studying and photographing the urban and rural landscape and the cultural infrastructure. In 2015, Kiefer was included in LensCulture‘s top 50 emerging photographers and Photolucida‘s top 50 Critical Mass. His ongoing photographic series El Sueño Americano (The American Dream) has been featured in news publications nationally and internationally.

Also on view: Migration Stories: Selections from the UMBC Photography Collections

Drawn from UMBC’s collections, Migration Stories features twenty photographs that address human migration from a variety of perspectives. The installation explores the role of photography in shaping the public image of this issue and in conveying individual narratives of translocation and displacement.

Both exhibitions will be on display in the Library Gallery through May 23.

The presentation of this exhibition is supported by an arts program grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency funded by the State of Maryland and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support comes from the Libby Kuhn Endowment Fund, as well as individual contributions.

          Glen Macnow: Exploring MLB Cy Young Award odds      Cache   Translate Page      

For years, a buddy and I wagered an annual steak dinner on baseball’s Cy Young Award. We each had a short list of studs – mostly favorites – and once you won with a guy, he was yours forever. So my pal collected three juicy porterhouses, thanks to Max Scherzer. And I’ll always toast the late, great Roy Halladay for earning me those two ribeyes at Del Frisco’s.

It’s been fun. And highly caloric. But now the stakes get higher than, well, steaks.

With legalized sports gambling, we can now bet on any future we want at casinos around the area. If I win this time, I’ll take my earnings without a side of mashed potatoes.

And because we get actual odds in this new world, I’m not just leaning on the favorites. Washington’s Scherzer, for example, is a perennial candidate for Cy. But at 9/4 in 2019, the payout doesn’t seem worth the investment. Who wants to bet the chalk anyway?

So let’s look at other NL candidates. The Mets Jacob deGrom had a spectacular 2018 season, certainly worthy of the 20118 Cy he won. DeGrom cut his ERA more than in half (3.53 to 1.70) and dropped his WHIP nearly 25 percent. Had he done that at age 25, rather than age 30, I’d believe he could repeat. But at his age? Sorry, Mets fans. I see it as an outlier season.

Clayton Kershaw (10/1) has been a three-time winner (cost me a steak each time), but he enters 2019 with more shoulder issues. My next wager on him will involve the Hall of Fame.

And, hey Nats fans. I’m also staying away from Patrick Corbin (25/1) who’s overpaid and overrated after one strong season; and from Stephen Strasburg (25/1), unless the wager is how many times he winds up on the newly named “injured list.” And I’ll avoid the excellent Kyle Freeland (18/1) because in their 26-year history no Rockies pitcher has ever received a single first-place vote for Cy Young. 

That still leaves worthy candidates. Aaron Nola (9/1) improves every season and is entering his prime at 26. He will benefit from stronger defense (Jean Segura, Andrew McCutchen) and a potent lineup – which should persuade manager Gabe Kapler to let Nola pitch deeper and earn more wins. A terrific bet at the odds.

And throw a few Benjis at these longshots:

@ Madison Bumgarner (18/1), whose recent injuries are more freak accidents than baseball breakdowns. I foresee a strong bounce back season, even if the Giants stink.

@Walker Buehler (25/1), is the next great L.A. pitcher. Did you know the Dodgers have won 12 CY Young awards – five more than any other franchise?

@ Mike Foltynewicz, Braves (50/1) and Robbie Ray, Diamondbacks (50/1). It’s fun to bet a longshot, and both of these guys seemed poised for bigtime success. Take five bucks you’d spend on coffee and lay it down on one of these 27-year-olds.

In the American League, I’m also eschewing the low-payout favorites, which takes out Corey Kluber (5/2) and Chris Sale (3/1). I considered Luis Severino (7/1) until I read the Yankees shut him down with shoulder inflammation. Uh oh.

Two AL pitchers I love for this proposition: James Paxton (22/1) moves from Seattle to New York, where he’s going to win a lot more games and garner a lot more attention. And Gerrit Cole (20/1) finished fifth in the Cy voting as a first-year Astro in 2018. He’ll likely do even better this season on one of baseball’s elite clubs.

At those odds, I’ll bet ‘em both. And when I collect, I’ll be buying steak dinners for all. Make mine medium-rare.

          CLEAR AIR Crowned J/24 Midwinter Champion      Cache   Translate Page      
(Tampa, FL)- Twenty-nine teams from the USA, Canada, and Japan participated in the 41st J/24 Midwinter Championship, hosted by Davis Island Yacht Club in Tampa, FL.  The racing was close over the three days, seeing change-ups on the leaderboard after every day.  In the finale on Sunday, it was a tight battle for the top three spots on the podium, with just five points separating the top three after eight races on northern Tampa Bay.

Winning the 2019 edition of the J/24 Midwinter Championship was the 2017 J/24 World Champion Rossi Milev, sailing with his Canadian crew on CLEAR AIR.  The team was comprised of Dan Borrer, Gayle Gray, Vince Somoza (boat owner) and Mark Goodyear.  Here is how it all went down over the three days of tough, competitive racing in the world’s largest one-design keelboat class.

Day 1- Sunny seabreeze
The regatta started out slowly, with many of the crews anxious to get racing underway. However, the gorgeous sunrise revealed a “glass out” on Tampa Bay, without a zephyr of wind in sight. The teams simply waited for a few hours and many could be seen nervously fidgeting with their boats and rig tune, anticipating a light to moderate seabreeze to develop later in the day.

Just after lunch, the winds rose to around 6 knots and then built to 10 from the SSE, allowing three races under blue skies and temperatures near 80. Robby Brown’s ANGEL OF HARLEM, a full-blown “local knowledge” crew from Davis Island YC, led at the conclusion of racing on the first day with a steady 7-2-3 for 12 pts total. Milev’s CLEAR AIR sat five points back after scoring a 2-1-14 for 17 pts.  Then, Mark Laura’s BABA LOUIE crew from Seattle, Washington was just one point further back with 18 pts after posting a 6-7-5.

Carter White’s YouREGATTA kicked off the Championship with line honors in the first race, ahead of Milev’s CLEAR AIR and Travis Odenbach’s HONEYBADGER. Milev moved up to the top spot in Friday’s middle race, with Brown’s ANGEL OF HARLEM and Dan Busch’s BUSCHWHACKER completing the top three. It was Tony Parker’s turn for the victory with BANGOR PACKET in the final duel, along with James Freedman’s MISS CONDUCT and Brown leading the group back to shore.

Day 2- Another gorgeous sunny, moderate day
Beautiful Florida weather again greeted the competitors on the regatta’s middle day.  Yet again, it was a near “glass out” to start the morning, with a postponement onshore. Nevertheless, the sea breeze kicked in again around noon and racing got underway at 1:00 pm with SSW winds of 6-12 knots. The conditions were perfect to run three more races in genoa-only conditions.

Freedman’s MISS CONDUCT continued their solid performance with Saturday’s opening win, as Brown and Milev followed. The Nova Scotian Evan Petley-Jones and team on CAN 4025 found success in race five, ahead of Mollicone and White. Parker’s BANGOR PACKET, John Mollicone’s HELLY HANSEN (himself a J/24 World Champion with yet another World Champions as tactician- Tim Healy) and Michael Quaid’s ICE CUBE comprised the day’s final top trio.

After six races at Davis Island Yacht Club in Tampa, FL, four teams were within four points to determine the J/24 Midwinter Championship. Milev’s CLEAR AIR moved up to the top of the 29-boat pack with 18 points, after dropping a 14 from Friday and keeping scores of 2-1-3-7-5. White’s YouREGATTA leap-frogged into second place with 20 net points, benefiting from discarding a 12 in race two and holding remaining scores in the top six. Day one frontrunner, Brown’s ANGEL OF HARLEM, dropped to third with 21 points, although just three points off the lead. Mollicone’s HELLY HANSEN ended Saturday with back-to-back seconds, leaving them four points behind Milev with 22 pts net, after tossing out a disastrous first-race 24th place.

Day 3- Thrilling Finale!
Sunday dawned with a near carbon-copy of the first two days.  Yet again, the fleet waited for the seabreeze to develop and with more blue skies, temperatures hovering around 80 degrees, the breeze built into the 6-10 kts range to permit the DIYC PRO to run two more races.  For the top three boats, it was an “all or nothing” battle to determine the 2019 J/24 Midwinter Champion.

Recognizing the need to put some distance on their competitors, Milev’s CLEAR AIR crew managed to pull off a first race win to put lots of pressure on the other crews.  White’s crew managed a third and Mollicone’s team actually fell back on points by scoring a fifth place.  Going into the final race, Milev simply had to finish within four points of White and eight points of Mollicone to win the title.  In the last race, Mollicone’s HELLY HANSEN put their boat into high gear and won the race handily, followed by Travis Odenbach’s HONEYBADGER in second and White in third, with Milev crossing in fourth to take the Midwinter title with three points to spare.

Behind Milev’s jubilant Canadian crew, it was White’s YouREGATTA that proved to be the most consistent team, closing with a 3-3 to take the silver.  Meanwhile, after their awful 24th place on day one, the Mollicone/ Healy combination on HELLY HANSEN flew back up the leaderboard to, ultimately, take the bronze. Rounding out the top five were Parker’s BANGOR PACKET in fourth and Brown’s ANGEL OF HARLEM in fifth position.

This event was Milev’s first since winning the 2017 J/24Worlds. “It felt great to be back,” said Milev. “We didn’t have the gears, since we haven’t sailed for a while.  But, every day we got a little better.” Although Gray and Goodyear were part of the World Championship crew, Borrer and Somoza were newcomers to CLEAR AIR, yet “clicked from the get-go.”

About Davis Island, Milev summarized, “It’s one of my favorite places in North America to sail. It’s the friendliest yacht club by far. The breeze this weekend was unbelievable. I’ve sailed here a lot of times, and this is the steadiest I’ve ever seen it. On Saturday, we had 15 minutes on one tack, and we never got a shift.”  For more J/24 Midwinter Championship sailing information

          Savage Love      Cache   Translate Page      
Family sexual abuse and the lessons of Leaving Neverland. by Dan Savage

My grandfather was a pillar of the community and beloved by his family. He was also sexually abusive. He died when I was a child. I remember only one incident happening to me—during a cuddle session, he encouraged me to put my mouth on his penis, and then told me to let it be our little secret. I heard rumors as an adult that he molested other kids in the neighborhood. He also had a sexual relationship with my mother. She says nothing happened as a child. But as an adult, he started telling her he loved her in a romantic way. He told her he wanted to take nude Polaroids of her, and she let him. And she loved him—she and her sisters all pretty much idolized him. My one aunt knew (she said nothing happened to her), and I asked her how she reconciled that. She said she compartmentalized it—she thought he was a wonderful father and didn't really think about the other stuff. I did lots of therapy in the late 1980s and early '90s. I read books, I journaled, I talked to my mom and tried to understand what she experienced. And I moved on as much as anyone could. So now it's 2019 and I'm almost 50. My mom just moved into a nursing home, and while cleaning out her drawers, I found the Polaroids my grandfather took of her. I know it was him because he is in some of them, taken into a mirror as she goes down on him. They were taken over a period of years. She had led me to believe he never really did anything sexual with her besides taking photos. But he did. And here's the thing, Dan: In the photos, she looks happy. I know she was probably acting, because that's what he wanted from her. But it just makes me question my assumptions. Was it terrible abuse or forbidden love? Both? What am I looking at? What would I prefer—that she enjoyed it or that she didn't? She kept the photos. Were they fond memories? I know she loved him. She kind of fell apart when he died. Was he a fucking manipulator who had a gift for making his victims feel loved and special as he exploited them for his own selfish needs? I don't know if I'm going to bring this up with my mom. She's old and sick, and I dragged her through these types of conversations in my 20s. So I'm writing you. This is so far out of most people's experience, and I want someone who has heard more sexual secrets than probably anyone else in the world to tell me what he thinks.

Whirlwind Of Emotions

I think you should sit down and watch all four hours of Leaving Neverland, the new HBO documentary by British filmmaker Dan Reed. It focuses on the experiences of Wade Robson and James Safechuck, two now-adult men who were sexually abused by pop star Michael Jackson when they were boys. Allegedly. It's an important film to watch, WOE, but it's not an easy one to watch, as it includes graphic descriptions of the sexual abuse both men claim to have suffered as boys.

The second most disturbing part of the film after the graphic descriptions of child rape—or the third most disturbing part after the credulity/culpability of Robson's and Safechuck's parents—may be what the men have to say about Jackson. Both describe their abuser in romantic terms. They both say they loved Jackson. And they both remain deeply conflicted about their feelings for Jackson then and their feelings for him now. It was their affection for Jackson—their desire to protect him and to safeguard what Jackson convinced both of them was a secret and a bond they shared—that led both men to lie to law-enforcement officials when Jackson was accused of sexually abusing different boys.

You should also listen to Reed's interview on The Gist, Mike Pesca's terrific daily podcast. Reading your letter the morning after I watched Leaving Neverland reminded me of something Reed said to Pesca: "What the film is about is the reckoning. It's two families coming to terms with what happened to their sons. And a big part of understanding that, you know—so why the silence? Why did the sons keep silent for so long? Why did they keep the secret? And the key really is to be able to explain why Wade gave false witness and perjured himself on the witness stand. And the reason for that, of course, has to do with how survivors of sexual abuse experience that. And how they keep a secret and how they sometimes form deep attachments with the abuser and how that attachment persists into adult life."

Your mother, like Robson and Safechuck, lied to protect her abuser, a man who abused her and abused you and probably many others. She may have held on to those photos for the same reason Robson and Safechuck say they defended Jackson: She loved her father, and she was so damaged by what he did to her—she had been so expertly groomed by her abuser—that she felt "loved" and "special" in the same way that Jackson's alleged abuse once made Robson and Safechuck feel loved and special. So as horrifying as it is to contemplate, WOE, your mother may have held on to those photos because they do represent what are, for her, "fond memories." And while it would be a comfort to think she held on to those photos as proof for family members who doubted her story if she ever decided to tell the truth, her past defenses of her father work against that explanation.

Leaving Neverland demonstrates that sexual abuse plants a ticking time bomb inside a person—shit, sorry, no passive language. Leaving Neverland demonstrates that sexual predators like your grandfather and like Jackson—fucking manipulators with a gift for making their victims feel loved and special—plant ticking time bombs in their victims. Even if a victim doesn't initially experience their abuse as a violation and as violence, WOE, a reckoning almost inevitably comes. One day, the full horror of what was done to them snaps into focus. These reckonings can shatter lives, relationships, and souls.

It doesn't sound like your mother ever had her reckoning—that day never came for her—and so she never came to grips with what was done to her and, tragically, what was done to you. And your aunt wasn't the only member of your family who "didn't really think about the other stuff." Just as denial and compartmentalization enabled Jackson and facilitated his crimes (and allowed the world to enjoy Jackson's music despite what was staring us all in the face), denial and compartmentalization allowed your "pillar of the community" grandfather to rape his daughter, his granddaughter, and scores of other children. Like Robson and Safechuck, WOE, you have a right to be angry with the adults in your family who failed to protect you from a known predator. That some of them were also his victims provides context, but it does not exonerate them.

I'm glad your grandfather died when you were young. It's tempting to wish he'd never been born, WOE, but then you would never have been born, and I'm glad you're here. I'm particularly glad you're there, right now, embedded in your damaged and damaging family. By telling the truth, you're shattering the silence that allowed an abuser to groom and prey on children across multiple generations of your family. Your grandfather can't victimize anyone else, WOE, but by speaking up—by refusing to look the other way—you've made it harder for other predators to get away with what your grandfather did.

P.S. There's a moment in the credits for Leaving Neverland that I think you might want to replicate. It involves some things one of Jackson's alleged victims saved and a fire pit. You'll know what I mean when you see it.

          Slog PM: A College Admissions Scam for the Ages, Minimal Road Rage in Seattle, Another Brexit Failure      Cache   Translate Page      
by Nathalie Graham

Remember the nearly 2,000 dairy cows killed in a blizzard in Eastern Washington? A blizzard swept through the Yakima Valley in early February. The storm killed 1,850 cows. That loss totaled $3.7 million. In an attempt to escape the blizzard, the cows had herded together. They died in those bunches, suffocating or getting trampled. The dairy farmers did as much as they could, according to the Seattle Times.

A college admissions scam for the ages: Oh, boy. You know that saying—how does it go? Money can't buy everything? Some wealthy parents put that saying to the test. They attempted to pay to get their children admitted into elite colleges. The money was allegedly spent a variety of ways from fudging SAT scores to bribing athletic directors into recruiting their children for a Division 1 sport that the child never actually played. Everyone involved got busted. There are currently 50 people, including actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Laughlin, charged by the FBI in their criminal investigation. They pulled a Jared Kushner.

Some excerpts from the Department of Justice indictment: This is just part of the thread, but I highly recommend taking a stroll through the whole thing. It's absolutely bonkers.


The drama continues:


The gender wage gap is alive in Northwest public radio: A new report from Crosscut shows that two female employees at a Spokane-based public radio station made drastically less money than their male counterparts. The network claims this discrepancy is because of geography. The women work at a Spokane-based public radio. Their male counterparts work in Seattle at KUOW, a partner station.

There's a strip club monopoly in Seattle: It's bad for dancers. They've banded together to create a bill with Working Washington to implement new trainings and workplace standards in clubs.

This is handy: The Seattle Times has compiled a bill tracker for all the transit-related bills in the Legislature this session. Keep an eye on it. I'll be watching HB 1772, which concerns electric scooters. Give us the e-scooter, lawmakers.

Despite best efforts, my hopes are up: I won't believe it until I feel 70 degrees on my skin, but here's to trusting the weather experts.


For the time being:


Minimal road rage in Seattle: Maybe it's our passive aggressive natures or Seattleites are just calmer on the roads, but a new study ranked Washington 29th out the 30 most populous cities for aggressive drivers. Cool! Los Angeles is the worst for aggressive driving. That makes sense.

Another Brexit failure: British Parliament defeated Prime Minister Theresa May's plan to leave the European Union in a decisive 391 to 242 vote. There are 17 days left before the deadline to leave the EU. That means that Britain could exit the EU without a plan or there may be a vote to extend the deadline. Really, the whole thing is entirely up in the air and May's leadership has been called into question again.

Amidst all these California people embroiled in scandals there's a butterfly migration in LA: Painted Ladies are a type of butterfly that are migrating en-masse across California right now. This is the highest population of Painted Ladies seen since about 2005, according to the Los Angeles Times. This is refreshing amidst a current butterfly drought in California. Butterfly populations have been in decline recently. Several species have been slowly disappearing.

          Washington State Lawmaker Calls Adversity "A Gift" For Students      Cache   Translate Page      
“I think we often forget the value of adversity and how important it is," said Sen. Wagoner in front of other human beings. by Rich Smith
“I think we often forget the value of adversity and how important it is, said Sen. Wagoner in front of other human beings.
“I think we often forget the value of adversity and how important it is," said Sen. Wagoner in front of other human beings. Courtesy of Washington State Legislature

On Saturday, the State Senate passed a bill, sponsored by Sen. Guy Palumbo, that guarantees free college and trade school for students from the poorest families in Washington. In order for students to access and retain that scholarship money, according to the bill, they'll need to maintain "satisfactory academic progress" toward graduation, which institutions generally interpret as a 2.0 GPA, i.e. a "C."

But that provision wasn't good enough for Washington state Republicans, who offered an amendment requiring students to maintain a 2.5 GPA (i.e. a "C+") in order to retain the scholarship. The amendment was voted down, but, in defending their case, Republicans revealed yet again the barbarism at the heart of their party's value system. No one embodied that value more than Sen. Keith Wagoner, who stood up on the Senate floor and championed the virtue of making the lives of his constituents more miserable because, basically, he thinks misery will make them work harder.

“I think we often forget the value of adversity and how important it is," Sen. Wagoner said in front of other human beings after telling his story about working his way through college. "When you give something to people, there’s no adversity. If we knock down Mount Everest so that everyone can get to the top, it wouldn’t have any meaning.”

Here we have a lawmaker openly admitting that he thinks it's his job to maintain—and in this case construct—obstacles in order to make life harder for his own constituents.

But it's difficult to focus on the absurdity of this claim because all I can hear when I listen to Wagoner's little speech is a Baby Boomer patting himself on the back for working his way through school in the early 1980s. Every time that happens, I have to fight an uncontrollable urge to scream the comparative cost of credit hours from 2017 and 1979 at them until they stop.

To indulge his line of reasoning: Just as the point of Mount Everest isn't to climb Mount Everest, the point of going to college isn't to learn how to balance the stress of working a minimum wage job with the responsibilities of attending class, completing homework, and in some cases choosing between finding a babysitter and going to a study group. The point of going to college is to learn how to think so that you don't wind up making stupid arguments like Wagoner over here, and also to expand the universe of things you can think about.

The fact is that kids today are facing adversity by working their way through college. The problem is the work doesn’t cover the cost of tuition—let alone living expenses—so they’re only working to keep their heads above water.

Unfortunately, lots of students from low-income households end up dropping out of college because, no matter how hard they work, they can't seem to earn enough money to pay for college.

That's the issue Palumbo's bill is trying to fix (in its limited little way). Due to intense financial pressures, low-income students have a harder time getting into college in the first place, and they have a harder time staying in once they get there. Guaranteeing free college for the poorest Washingtonians—meaning students from families living below 110 percent of the federal poverty line, e.g. a family of four making just under $28,000 per year—will help ease the financial burden these students bear, which will give them a fairer shot at succeeding in college.

Maintaining a C average during that process—rather than a C+ average—shouldn't discount those students from receiving that aid. A few Republican U.S. presidents, after all, only did about as well. And as Democratic senator Jannie Darneille pointed out on the floor, it's harder to raise your GPA than it is to watch it fall dramatically for one reason or another. These grades are averages—you could get two As and two Fs one semester and be paying for it for the next four years. For that reason, GPA isn't the best indicator of completion rates in college. Financial stress, however, is.

Passing this law isn't just a nice thing to do for students. From Washington's upside-down tax code to its inability to adequately fund K-12 education to its history of slashing public funding for higher education, this state has made climbing out of poverty a near impossibility for hundreds of thousands of people. Washington owes it to these families to do something, and guaranteeing scholarships to its poorest households is THE LEAST lawmakers can do.

Anyhow, I guess I shouldn't be surprised that a Republican like Wagoner would so baldly praise the "gift" of adversity. That's the value the Washington state GOP has always stood for. They value putting up barriers to education. They value immiserating the population. They're political sadists. Which, if nothing else, makes their stern opposition to sadism all the more confusing.

          Bill That Could Vacate 68,000 Washington Pot Convictions Passes Senate      Cache   Translate Page      
The Washington state Senate passed a bill on Monday that would make it possible to vacate over 68,000 misdemeanor marijuana convictions. by Lester Black

A proposed law that would make it easy for over 68,000 people to clear their old misdemeanor marijuana possession convictions passed in the Washington Senate last night, making it one step closer to becoming law. Senate Bill 5605 passed with a 29-19 vote.

Sen. Joe Nguyen, a Democrat that represents parts of West Seattle and White Center, said he sponsored the legislation in an attempt to undo some of the harm of the criminal justice system’s war on drugs.

“If you look at our justice system, it’s obviously broken, and one of the biggest glaring examples of that is the unjust war on drugs that disproportionately impacted communities of color, especially the black community,” Nguyen said.

Washington legalized pot in 2012, meaning the crime these people were convicted of is no longer against state law. Yet these convictions still show up on people’s records, causing problems when it comes to employment, housing, and other aspects of life.

“We should make sure that we vacate as many convictions as possible for things that are now legal,” Nguyen said.

Two Republicans supported the Senate Bill: Sen. Lynda Wilson from Vancouver and Sen. Hans Zeiger from Snohomish. The proposed law now heads to the House of Representatives, where Nguyen said it has a good chance of passing.

“I think we should be in good shape. There’s no question they have the votes to pass this. It’s just a matter of making sure it’s a priority for the house as well,” Nguyen said.

The proposed law would require Washington’s courts to vacate all misdemeanor marijuana offenses as long as the person with the conviction applies for the vacation. The only requirement is that the person was 21 years of age or older at the time of the offense. A fiscal note attached to the Senate bill estimated that there were 43,506 people that met this criteria, but a representative from the Washington State Patrol told the Tacoma News Tribune that there are currently 58,864 people with 68,543 misdemeanor marijuana convictions.

Nguyen said he would have preferred that the bill just automatically vacate all of these misdemeanor charges so that the affected people would not be required to do anything, but he said state law would now allow that.

“You are not constitutionally allowed to just vacate marijuana convictions wholesale because there are seperations of power [between the legislature and the courts]. They will still have to apply for the court vacation, but it’s like $5. It’s still a step that I don’t want to do but I can’t get around it.”

          Creation and Destruction of Our Own Underworld with Hanako O'Leary      Cache   Translate Page      
by Jasmyne Keimig
Hanako OLearys art is...really fucking cool
Hanako O'Leary's art is...really fucking cool Jasmyne Keimig
Some might describe Seattle artist Hanako O'Leary's work as confrontational—and it's easy to see why it's confrontational, if you don't spend a lot of time thinking about vulvas (your own and others'), and giving the world the bird. But I think there's another more apt phrase to describe O'Leary's work: "really-fucking-sick"! "Punk-as-fuck," even. "Something-I-want-everyone-to-see-right-now-immediately." Or, more accurately, me just pointing to each piece and nodding really hard and making approving noises, grunting, "Yes, THIS," as if the work is a tweet I agree with but don't care to expand on.

You can find O'Leary's pieces in Trouble Comes in Threes, a show at Magnuson Park Gallery that features work from three generations of artists: Elizabeth Sandvig, Erin Shafkind, and O'Leary. All work within the medium of clay, though each artist has markedly different interests. Shafkind's work revolves around shit and food, creating playful boxes with gold-covered turds perched on the lid and vases that balance veggies and hamburgers on top. Sandvig is much more interested in cats of all kinds. But O'Leary's pieces are each incredibly remarkable and distinct in their own way, unlike anything I've seen before. Especially made out of clay.

O'Leary's five pieces featured at the gallery are part of a larger series of works called Izanami, named after the Shinto goddess of creation and death who died while giving birth to fire and was subsequently sent down into the underworld. O'Leary—who is half-Japanese—started this series in February 2018 after having her first abortion. She tells me over email that her work continues Izanami's story, "embracing the mystical feminine realm in its entirety and celebrating the right to create or destroy what lies within our own underworld."

The masks pictured above are battle masks inspired by the Japanese Hannya mask and are part of a series of 12. The masks are traditionally used in Noh theater and are meant to portray the souls of women who become demons due to obsession or jealousy, their faces growing two sharp horns, metallic eyes, and an upturned mouth revealing long sharp teeth. O'Leary flips this a bit, putting a delicate and carefully sculpted vulva where the face should be, telling me it's a comparison between the two. "I believe both to be complicated, feared, deeply misunderstood, and powerful." Looking at it up on the wall, illuminated by just a single lamp, there is something compelling about it. A vulva where a face should be. Pubic hairs and all.

Utsuro-bune (Hollow Ship) from the top
Top of Utsuro-bune (Hollow Ship) JK

The other notable and impressive O'Leary piece in the show is her Utsuro-bune (Hollow Ship) in the center of the gallery. The vessel, which she refers to as a Venus Jar, is also part of a series of 12. It has no less than 20 arms rising from it—some with their middle fingers held defiantly in the air, others artfully touching the middle and ring fingers to the thumb. In the middle is another vulva.

O'Leary was inspired by a Japanese folktale from the 19th century about a strange hollow ship that washed ashore in a rural fishing village and contained a woman who could not communicate in Japanese. She had a box that she refused to open. Suspicious of the woman's motives, the villagers sent her back off to sea.

"Traditional interpretations of this story conclude that the heroine is doomed to perish at sea," O'Leary wrote me. "I understand it to mean they stood their ground and maintained their autonomy. This sculpture is a representation of the castaway and their seafaring vessel." This vessel is seriously so large and intricate, I can't imagine how big the kiln must be or how painstaking it must have been to assemble. Some of the fingers on the ship appear to have been broken off and glued back on, though it doesn't take away from how impressive the piece is. O'Leary's work really grabs your attention and reinterprets myth and tradition in a way that grounds it in the now without losing the essential tether to the past.

Trouble Comes in Threes is up until March 15. There will be a closing reception from 5 to 8pm, at which the artists will be giving a short talk on their new works. Be sure to see it before it closes!

          Elizabeth Warren, Facebook, and "Outsourced Content Moderation"      Cache   Translate Page      
by Eli Sanders

By now you've heard the story: Elizabeth Warren wants to break up Big Tech, so her presidential campaign bought ads on Facebook talking about how Facebook is too powerful and should be cut down to size. Then Facebook blocked Warren's ads, making Warren's point for her.

This episode, Warren says, is a perfect example of why we should have "a social media marketplace that isn't dominated by a single censor."

But it's also a perfect example of an additional issue with Facebook: the social media giant's ongoing reliance on "outsourced content moderation."

The phrase, which I first noticed in this October 2018 New York Times editorial, describes how Facebook not only relies on users to produce its content for free but also, all too often, relies on users to police its content for free, too.

Facebook has lately hired thousands of moderators to deal with this issue (people working in low-paid positions that come with their own problems and traumas), but it's clearly not enough.

In the Warren episode, as in so many others, it was a journalist who had to nudge Facebook toward the correct content moderation response.

After Politico broke the story of Facebook blocking Warren's ads, the company backtracked and restored the ads in the interest of what it called "robust debate."

This kind of thing has happened many times before, in all kinds of variations. Very often, it's journalists pointing out content that Facebook hasn't taken down but should.

"Social media misinformation is becoming a newsroom beat in and of itself," the Times editorial explained, "as journalists find themselves acting as unpaid content moderators for these platforms."

Here in Washington State, to take yet another example, The Stranger has been providing ongoing, unpaid content moderation to both Facebook and Google because, while both companies say they've banned local political ads here (in order to avoid Washington's tough election ad transparency rules), both companies nevertheless keep on selling local political ads.

As the Times wrote months ago, "The companies have all the tools at their disposal and a profound responsibility to find exactly what journalists find — and yet, clearly, they don’t."

          Old Fat Lesbians Bring Joy—and Weed—to Instagram      Cache   Translate Page      
420oldfatlesbians have been on Instagram for less than two weeks but their account is already blowing up. by Katie Herzog

Sue and Lee have been on Instagram for less than two weeks but their account is already blowing up. This may have a little to with the name, @420oldfatlesbians (everyone loves lesbians), but probably has more to do with the content.

In the roughly 20 videos they've posted so far, you see two sunglasses-wearing older women, smoking weed and cracking themselves up. They frequently use their own homemade smoking devices, including this hers-and-hers bong they made out of two water bottles duct taped together. The whole thing is thoroughly charming, and viewers are responding: Yesterday, they had 200 followers. As of this writing, they have over 4,000.

I caught up with Sue and Lee (not their real names) on the phone Tuesday morning from their home in Maine.

KH: Are you smoking right now?
Sue: No.

Too bad. What's the status of weed in Maine? I assume it's not legal?
Sue: It's medically legal and just became recreationally legal last year.

So why do you want to be anonymous?
Lee: We just like our privacy. I know it sounds contradictory considering we're on Instagram but we don't really want our names out there. We didn't know this was going happen.

How long have you been smoking weed?
Sue: I did it in high school and due to work, I couldn't have the smell on me so I would eat edibles here and there. I knew once we retired I would get more into it because I have pain from the work I did for decades.

What kind of work did you do?
Sue: It was private care-giving focused on end-of-life.

So are you both retired?
Sue: Yup, kind of.
Lee: I'm an accountant, semi-retired. I still have a few clients.

And how long have you been together?
Sue: Twelve years together, four years legally married.

And what do you like about weed?
Lee: I never smoked marijuana as a kid but I had a lot of pain after I had neck surgery and it's just a great pain reliever. I didn't want to go to the opiods so in the last four or five years, I've done a lot of edibles and vaping. I couldn't walk around without it. It's great.

What's it like in Maine? Is there still a big stigma against weed in Maine or is it pretty chill there?
Sue: It's really chill. In the area we live in, it's a pretty big culture, pretty open. There are several people that grow. I don't think there's a big stigma attached to it at all.

Do you get it from a medical dispensary?
Sue: Actually, we grew some last summer and we've had a nice supply but there are dispensaries for medical marijuana in our area and we have cards so if we ever want to try different strains, it's not an issue.

Are you out about it to your friends?
Sue: Oh, yeah. I've never kept it a secret. Doing care-giving, I even tried to introduce it to some patients and my friends if they had issues. It seems to be well-received with everyone I talked to.

How old are you?
Lee: Let's just say we are in our third-trimester of life.

Does this surprise you? When you were back in the first or second trimester of life, would you have ever thought that end up being stoner?
Lee: When I was a kid, there is no way I would have looked forward to seeing myself as stoner lesbian on Instagram. It's pretty cool though.

How's the response been to your account? Seems like you're getting a lot of traction.
Sue: We had like 200 followers yesterday and have 3,000 today. It's pretty funny.

Oh my god. How did that happen?
Sue: We had a KY video that kind of got shared a lot. It has like 5,000 views now. People put us in their Stories and it kind of went from there. We've only had the account for eight or nine days.

Why'd you decide to start this account.
Lee: Um, we're retired. Oh, shit.

Retirement sounds amazing. I'm jealous.
Lee: It's something to have fun with and, you know, we thought we could make a few people laugh and share some experiences and what not. It makes the world a better place.

Seems like you've been experimenting with some DIY mechanisms for smoking. Some of this paraphernalia I've never even see before.
Sue: We kind of just make them. It's pretty simple. Nothing fancy, just homemade stuff.

Is making the stuff part of the fun for you? When I was a teenager I would make bongs out of plastic bottles and stuff but when I was able to buy them I stopped. So is the crafting part of the fun for you or is this a necessity?
Sue: It's just for fun. We can certainly buy bongs or pipes or whatever we want.

Have you considered making your own products? It seems like there may be a market for it?
Sue: Like edibles or pieces?

Pieces, like that face mask that you made out of what looked like a Sprite bottle. What do you call it? The Green Monster?

Lee: I think I saw that somewhere on YouTube several months back and thought, well, what the heck.

It seemed pretty effective.
Lee: I think the one I saw on YouTube was a blunt and there was so much smoke so we tried it with the vape pen and it worked.

Is there anything you want people to know about yourselves or weed or what it's like to be an older lesbian?
Lee: Nobody dies from smoking weed and they need to get off the opioids. We should make a PSA about that.
Sue: It's no longer a stigma. Being a lesbian is no longer a stigma, being old isn't a stigma. It's not about what you look like. It's not about what you do. It's about how you are on the inside. We never judge people on their appearance and we never wanted each other to change or to look different. Life is too short. When you do end-of-life care-giving, you learn what's important.
Lee: That's our big message. Life's too short.
Sue: Just be yourself and it just doesn't matter what people think.

          Pickathon Adds Phil Lesh, Karma Rivera, Reptaliens, and More to Its 2019 Lineup      Cache   Translate Page

This morning, Pickathon added several acts to its 2019 lineup, and it's quite a mixed bag. The biggest announcement is that Phil Lesh—the Grateful Dead's now-septuagenarian bass player—and his Terrapin Family Band will headline Thursday at the Mount Hood Stage, and will play again Friday at the Woods Stage. Bringing in a jam band god like Lesh and the Deadhead crowd he draws could slightly alter the flavor of Pickathon this year.

Additions I'm excited about: Portland rapper Karma Rivera, the psych-pop weirdos of Reptaliens, and Canadian folksinger Ora Cogan, whose voice channels Hope Sandoval and Karen Dalton over shrieking, orchestral strings on her latest album, 2017's Crickets. Also, the Richard Swift Hex Band—a tribute to the late Oregon musician and his final album, The Hex, released posthumously last September. A press release says the band will include "Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado, Dr. Dog’s Eric Slick, and Portland's very own Pure Bathing Culture," as well as other special guests.

Names I didn't recognize but, after some Googling, am excited to see: Self-described "beat scientist" Makaya McCraven, whose 2018 record Universal Beings is like a waking dream (especially the track "Mantra," which conjures '50s jazz harpist Dorothy Ashby); Altin Gün, a Turkish psychedelic funk band; straightforward Austin country-bluegrass band the Tender Things; Canadian singer/songwriter Dan Mangan; Ibibio Sound Machine, a London-based disco-pop group led by the enigmatic Eno Williams, who sings in both English and the Nigerian language of Ibibio; and Appalachian folk duo Vivian Leva & Riley Calcagno.

A name I didn't recognize and was honestly pretty afraid to Google: Viagra Boys, a Swedish punk band with a song called "Sports" that lists a few sports, as well as some things that most certainly are not sports (example: "Baseball/Basketball/Wiener dog/Short-shorts/Cigarette").

          Straight Boy Takes the Plunger      Cache   Translate Page      
Savage Love Letter of the Day by Dan Savage
Originally publshed October 22, 2009.

1548976856-savage-letter-of-the-day-stamp-2019.jpg

I'm a straight teenage male, but I can't climax unless I am stimulating my anus or rectum. I use various objects like cucumbers. The reason I don't buy a toy is that I live in a very religious household and my parents would disown me if they found a sex toy in my room.

I take a toilet plunger and wrap the handle with toilet paper and tissues. Then I take a plastic bag and put it over the top. After that, I wrap a rubber band around the bottom part of the bag so it can't slide off, lube it up, and fuck away! I really like this: I can put the suction part on the floor, sit on the handle part, and basically ride it while I use my hands to stroke my dick/balls.

I know you're thinking, "Gross! Do you realize that thing's been in the toilet?!" But I sterilize the handle with Lysol, then put soap on it before wrapping it with toilet paper. I also put disinfectant on the plastic bag, then wash it off with water. After I'm done, I put more disinfectant/­soap on the handle and wash it off so people who are using the plunger for its normal use don't get my ass germs. I've been doing this for about five years and haven't felt any bad symptoms except the occasional trace bleeding (I think due to not enough lube—or it may be due to the ridges of the bag). A few times I actually bled a lot (about the same amount as a medium cut on your finger) for two or three days, but I didn't feel it in my butt and only knew that I was bleeding when I took a shit.

Are homemade dildos a bad idea? Am I putting my family at risk by getting my ass germs on the plunger?

Always Nervous Until Sanitized

For the love of God, ANUS, get your hands and ass on an actual sex toy—they make dildos with suction-cup bases—before you do some real damage to yourself. Your 10-step toilet-plunger-into-anal-sex-toy plan is ingenious, I'll admit, and your concern for the health of your family is touching. But given a choice between explaining your masturbatory routine to your parents because they found a dildo in your room or explaining it to them because you wound up in an emergency room because your luck ran out and the bleeding didn't stop, ANUS, I hope you would opt for the former.

If you're worried about the repercussions of discovery—such as being disowned—then hide the dildo someplace other than your room. Got siblings? Hide your dildo in the room of your least favorite. If you're an only child, find a beat-up-looking box, a couple of porn magazines that predate your family's tenure in your home, and hide the box with the dildo and old mags in the crawl space or a drop ceiling or the rafters. If your folks find it, they'll think it belonged to some perverted previous owner or tenant, not to their straight-but-needs-anal-stimulation-to-climax son.

A word to my fellow parents: If you find a penetration toy hidden in your child's room—why were you snooping?—do not freak the fuck out, do not disown your kid, and do not discard the toy. Your child probably went to great lengths to obtain that toy—teenagers can't just walk into sex shops—and he or she probably didn't decide to run the risks of obtaining and concealing a sex toy until he or she had a bad experience with an improvised sex toy, e.g., plunger-related rectal bleeding, difficulty retrieving a cucumber from the vaginal canal. If you make a scene and take the toy, your child may not acquire another—but your child's experiments with insertion will continue. He or she will just go back to using produce (swiped from the fridge for use, then returned to the fridge after use) or plunger handles or worse.

          RIP, Superstar Wrecking Crew Session Drummer Hal Blaine, Who Played on 150 Top 10 Songs      Cache   Translate Page      
RIP, Wrecking Crew member Hal Blaine, perhaps the busiest and most commercially successful session drummer of all time (he played on 40 #1 singles). by Dave Segal
Vintage Hal Blaine in session

Hal Blaine, the impeccable timekeeper on 40 No. 1 singles and on 150 Top 10 songs and thousands more for many of the biggest names in music history as a member of the unparalleled LA studio collective the Wrecking Crew, died Monday of natural causes at age 90. It's safe to say that most people in the Western world have heard Blaine's masterly drumming, even if they weren't aware of it, so ubiquitous was his presence on major recording sessions from the '60s through the '80s. You can hear Blaine's precision-tooled, tasteful beats on tracks by the Beach Boys, the Byrds, the Ronettes, Nancy and Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, the Supremes, John Lennon, the Association, Simon & Garfunkel, the Monkees, Paul Revere & the Raiders, Neil Diamond, 5th Dimension, Herb Alpert & Tijuana Brass, and many more. He also played drums on TV themes such as Batman, The Partridge Family, The Brady Bunch, and Three's Company, among others.

All of that is very impressive, to be sure. But what all of the obituary writers I've read so far have neglected to mention is Blaine's masterpiece: the 1967 solo LP Psychedelic Percussion. I get it: It's a weird record and it's not been reissued in the US since its initial release 52 years ago. However! Attention must be paid when a musician who's worked on so many hits goes off on his own to express himself in an idiosyncratic manner. Surely we want to hear how Hal Blaine gets down when there's no pressure to make radio-friendly tunes for other artists? Surely Psychedelic Percussion merits our curiosity? Let's not write this odyssey of oddity out of history, shall we?

Give the drummer some (acid).
Give the drummer some (acid). Dunhill Records
Psychedelic Percussion is a mere 28 minutes long, but it packs a lot of action in that brief time, and it totally lives up to its title. The album's 12 tracks come off as a cross between wild psychsploitation soundtrackage and exotic library—or even porn-flick—music suggestive of creations from countries you can't find on a map. Here, Blaine is liberated from having to keep tight, familiar grooves and is allowed to explore his entire kit and an array of percussion toys and electronics in order to manifest his most extravagant impulses. Put it on at a party and you'll separate the true freaks from the pretenders.


Now, will somebody (perhaps Light in the Attic or Finders Keepers) do a proper deluxe reissue, posthaste? The time is overdue, and this obscure slice of Blaine's prodigious creativity deserves more exposure.

Buyers looking for homes in cities like Seattle, San Jose and Oakland this spring will have more negotiating power than they did during previous years, thanks to surging inventory tugging prices down across the western United States.

Girls Burn Brighter
by Shobha Rao
-Literary, Feminism, India | Goodreads

A searing, electrifying debut novel set in India and America, about a once-in-a-lifetime friendship between two girls who are driven apart but never stop trying to find one another again.

When Poornima first meets Savitha, she feels something she thought she lost for good when her mother died: hope. Poornima's father hires Savitha to work one of their sari looms, and the two girls are quickly drawn to one another. Savitha is even more impoverished than Poornima, but she is full of passion and energy. She shows Poornima how to find beauty in a bolt of indigo cloth, a bowl of yogurt rice and bananas, the warmth of friendship. Suddenly their Indian village doesn't feel quite so claustrophobic, and Poornima begins to imagine a life beyond the arranged marriage her father is desperate to lock down for her. But when a devastating act of cruelty drives Savitha away, Poornima leaves behind everything she has ever known to find her friend again. Her journey takes her into the darkest corners of India's underworld, on a harrowing cross-continental journey, and eventually to an apartment complex in Seattle. Alternating between the girls’ perspectives as they face relentless obstacles, Girls Burn Brighter introduces two heroines who never lose the hope that burns within them.

In breathtaking prose, Shobha Rao tackles the most urgent issues facing women today: domestic abuse, human trafficking, immigration, and feminism. At once a propulsive page-turner and a heart-wrenching meditation on friendship, Rao's debut novel is a literary tour de force.

Barneys New York has announced a new flagship store inside American Dream, the shopping mall to be opened later this year in Bergen County, New Jersey, at the intersection of highways I-05, Route 3 and Route 120, which serve over 100 million vehicles annually. This will be Barneys’ only flagship in New Jersey, spanning two floors and about 50,000 square feet dedicated to womenswear, menswear, beauty, home and kids sections.

“We are thrilled to open our newest Barneys New York location at American Dream, a truly one-of-a-kind experiential retail environment”, said Barneys New York’s CEO and President Daniella Vitale in a statement. Owned by Triple Five Group, the same company behind Mall of America and West Edmonton Mall, American Dream will span 3 million square feet and feature 450 retail, food and specialty shops, including a dedicated luxury space called ‘The Collections’. Triple Five Group expects the new shopping mall to attract 40 million visitors each year.

Founded in 1923 in downtown Manhattan, Barneys New York currently operates two additional stores in New York, as well as in Beverly Hills, Chicago, Seattle, Boston, San Francisco and Las Vegas.

          Washington Tells AG Church They Must Pay for Abortions      Cache   Translate Page      

The attorneys for a church in Seattle filed a federal lawsuit on Friday against Washington state officials for forcing churches to pay for elective abortions in their health insurance.

Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) lawyers representing Cedar Park Assembly of God, challenged the constitutionality and legality of a new state mandate that requires the Seattle-area church to fund abortion if it provides its staff members access to group health insurance.

"No church should be coerced to pay for abortions, least of all a church that dedicates its ministry to protecting and celebrating life," ADF Legal Counsel Elissa Graves said in a press release. "Cedar Park believes and teaches that every human life begins at conception and is worthy of protection at every point until natural death."

"Further still, Cedar Park demonstrates its pro-life ethic in tangible ways: partnership with a local pregnancy care center, hosting an annual camp for children in foster care, operating a school that serves over 1,000 students and ministering to hundreds of couples struggling with infertility," the press release continued. "The state of Washington has no business strong-arming this church, or any other, into contradicting the deeply held beliefs that motivate its ministry."

The church's lawsuit challenges the constitutionality and legality of Washington State Senate Bill 6219, legislation signed into law last March. The legislation requires Cedar Park to provide coverage for abortion if the church also offers maternity care coverage to its employees, or face fines and criminal penalties, including imprisonment.

"Washington state has gone out of its way to bully churches and other religious nonprofits to violate their beliefs by paying for abortions," said ADF Senior Counsel Kevin Theriot, vice president of the ADF Center for Life, said in a press release. "The Supreme Court has consistently held that government hostility toward people of faith is unconstitutional and has no place in our society. The state's policy crushes dissent and violates the Constitution's Free Exercise Clause by targeting Cedar Park's entirely legitimate internal policies and religious beliefs."

          Bill Requiring Presidential Candidates to Release Tax Returns Passes Washington Senate      Cache   Translate Page      
If Trump wants to appear on Washington state’s ballot in 2020, he might have to release the last 5 years of his tax returns. by Rich Smith
This is kinda fun!
This is kinda fun! Lester Black

On Tuesday evening a bill requiring all presidential and vice presidential candidates to disclose the last 5 years of their tax returns in order to appear on Washington state ballots passed the Senate floor. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Patty Kuderer (D-Bellevue), passed 28 to 21 along party lines, because of course it did.

If Gov. Inslee ends up signing this bill, Donald Trump, Mike Pence, and Joe Bernie Sanders Warren Harris would have to show us the money if they want to get a vote from a single Washingtonian.

Twenty-six other states have introduced similar legislation, but so far none have taken. Two years ago, California's Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed a similar bill that passed through both chambers there.

Over the phone, Sen. Kuderer said she was "optimistic" Inslee would see "the wisdom in this bill" and sign it if it gets to him, making Washington state the first to force candidates to disclose returns to get on the ballot.

"Voters have a right to know what a candidate's conflict of interests are, they have a right to know their businesses' ties, their obligations, who they're beholden to," Kuderer said. "We've come to expect presidents and vice presidents to release their tax returns. It's become a vital piece of information when making a decision for the office," she added.

Kuderer expects the law will get tied up in courts given the subject matter but said lawmakers "shouldn't be afraid to pass legislation because someone might sue over it."

According to Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson, the bill is "probably" constitutional. In a letter to lawmakers issued earlier today, Ferguson said the proposal would "probably not" violate the Presidential Qualifications Clause in the Constitution because it wouldn't "exclude or handicap any class of candidates." He also said it would "probably not" violate the Presidential Elections Clause because the measure wouldn't mess with a party's "internal processes" for selecting a candidate.

However, Ferguson stressed it would be "exceptionally difficult to predict how a court would rule" on the constitutionality of this bill given the lack of precedent.

This is fun. If the request from Democrats on the Ways and Means Committee in the U.S. Congress gets tied up in courts, Washington state is poised to make Trump choose between showing us his probable connections to Russian oligarchs or writing off an entire state. Given the fact that Washington last voted for a Republican for president in 1984, he might be willing to do that. But if other states see that similar measures are possible and follow Washington's lead, then, well, we'll have a much more transparent 2020 election season.

          City Theatre Presents World Premiere Of THE BURDENS      Cache   Translate Page      

City Theatre is thrilled to announce the details of the fifth show of the season: the world premiere of The Burdens by Matt Schatz. The Burdens is a dark comedy for the digital age. It is directed by City Theatre's returning Artistic Director, Marc Masterson, and will run on the City Theatre Lester Hamburg Stage, April 6 - May 12, 2019. Tickets are on sale now.

This world premiere was developed in residency at the 2016 Eugene O'Neill National Playwriting Conference and has had readings at Seattle Rep, Midtown Direct Rep, Ensemble Studio Theatre, Florida Rep and City's own Momentum Festival.

"The Burdens having its first production at City Theatre, in particular, means so much to me," said playwright Matt Schatz. "City Theatre was the first place I ever really saw new plays and world premieres and they were always first-rate. As an MFA student, I interned in City's lit department in 2003 and assisted a playwright in the first-ever Momentum Festival of that year. To have a play be part of that festival last season and to be fully produced this season, really is a dream come true. In the past couple of years, Pittsburgh has embraced me and my work in ways that no other city has. I couldn't be more grateful, and I couldn't be more excited! I wasn't born or raised in Pittsburgh, but whenever I visit, it always feels like a homecoming."

Artistic Director Marc Masterson has also had a homecoming this year. The Burdens is the first show Marc is directing since returning as the Artistic Director of City Theatre after 18 years. "The Burdens is smart and funny and just dark enough that it doesn't kill the smart and funny," Marc commented. "I love the writing, the theatrical imagination, and what Matt has to say about family ties and the challenge of communicating in the modern world."

In an effort to better serve our community and to eliminate economic barriers to entry, City is continuing Pick-Your-Price-Previews: tickets start at just $5 (plus fees) to all performances April 6 through April 11. See details at CityTheatreCompany.org. This offer may not be combined with discounts.

Siblings Mordy and Jane communicate like proper millennials: primarily through text message and loaded with sarcasm. Their lives flailing on opposite coasts, they hatch an outrageous plan to relieve their mother of the burden of Zad-Zad, their centenarian - and particularly prickly - grandfather. A dark comedy for the digital age about pop culture, connection, and the value of actual face time.

The Burdens is directed by Marc Masterson. The cast includes Catherine LeFrere and Ben Rosenblatt. The production team includes Britton Mauk (scenic design), Andrew David Ostrowski (lighting design), Madison Hack (costume design), David Remedios (sound design), Clare Drobot (dramaturg), and Taylor Meszaros is Production Stage Manager.

CMU Alum Matt Schatz writers for the stage and screen, including projects developed for Fox Television Studios, USA, and TBS. Works include: An Untitled New Play by Justin Timberlake (CLO Spark Festival 2018) and Kleban Prize winner Love Trapezoid.

          Re: Seattle Has a Strip Club Monopoly and It's Bad for Our Exotic Dancers      Cache   Translate Page      

@26 let me clarify that the dances I felt pressured to give my last three years that I did not want to give we’re straddling-grinding and topless while touching. In all the Oregon clubs I made excellent money without having to straddle customers, and they all kept their hands on the couch, they did not touch. I never did sexual acts, nor did I quit because I felt like I couldn’t make money without doing sexual acts; rather I quit because I made a good living before giving lap dances where customers could not touch me and I did not have to straddle grind, in and out of Seattle. The management clearly allows straddle grinding walks by it without ever saying a word, and they only slap your wrist for customers touching.
I’m not the one to draw the line, but I’d like to be able to sell dances that aren’t like that.

          Re: Sawant Faces Ethics Complaint from Challenger, 12 Candidates in Ballard, and More City Council Election News      Cache   Translate Page      

@22: "Nobody has seen any proof that O'Brien wasn't going to win."

For any possible future event of non-zero probability, it is by definition impossible to provide proof that it cannot happen. Did you hit upon this amazing revelation all by yourself?

"All we get are these hearsay descriptions of private polling."

You seem to have a real problem believing that an elected official, on the eve of his election year, would commission a poll, read the results, and decide upon those results. Why do you doubt this very ordinary sequence of events happened in this case?

"Also known as the least reliable kind of polling, even if the hearsay is true."

If the poll showed voters, by a two-thirds to three-quarters margin (for example) had a negative view of CM O'Brien's performance in office, does it matter if the margin of error is 5, 10 or 20 percent? Discuss.

"In which case, why don't they just show us the poll?"

Yes, why was valuable information, which had been paid for private use, not been made pubic? You just don't understand.

"The hearsay about private polls that the head tax was unpopular is just as suspect."

Meaning, you have no reason to believe it was not valid.

"The city council was united in favor of it."

And the thudding of the Council's rubber stamp had barely stopped resounding when the citizens started organizing a referendum to overturn it. Who the hell do these people think they are, to oppose a united Council which had ignored them? If the Council had wanted citizen input, they would not have allowed rent-a-mobs from SHARE to shout down all opposition, right? And yet, those ungrateful citizens exercised their right under the Referendum process anyway.

"Suddenly a metric fuckton of money pours into Seattle politics,"

Actually, Amazon is a company founded in Seattle, with corporate headquarters in Seattle. (I just thought you should know.)

"a bunch of illegal private meetings happen,"

No meetings happened, and what happened was not illegal. The City Attorney just settled a lawsuit to that second point; do try to keep up.

"Along with sketchy paid signature gatherers with nothing but tales skanky manipulation and lies to get people to sign a piece of paper."

So, your claim that all the signatures were faked is no longer valid? How about your claim Fox News commanded tens of thousands of Seattle voters to sign? Which "bullshit narrative" (to coin a phrase) do you want us to believe this time? Please specify.

"And magically the whole council flips. How perfectly normal!"

It's almost like they finally understood how much we citizens opposed the EHT.

"And next thing you know, most of the council isn't running for re-election. Also perfectly normal!"

It's almost like they finally understood how badly they had failed us.

"The disproportionate anti-O'Brien hate you see online isn't matched on the ground in real life."

This in the very same comment wherein you complain that no one showed you the poll results. Priceless!

"Neither is the Sawant hate."

You're the one saying it's hate. Maybe it's just fatigue, after too much talk and too few results?

"So I was never wrong about O'Brien, because he dropped out."

You said he'd be re-elected. He won't be. You were wrong. See how that works? Please tell us you do.

"He dropped out for reasons we have no way of verifying."

You don't believe the reasons he gave?

"Next thing you're going to see is this sad little ethics complaint against Sawant fizzle out."

I mentioned up-thread it wasn't really relevant to the election, so thank you for your validation.

"You're going to have to earn it."

No, she's going to have to earn it. Or do you believe incumbency is self-perpetuating in this election year?

If so, go ask Mike O'Brien.

          Negara di Eropa hingga Asia Kandangkan Pesawat 737 Max, Saham Boeing Kembali Merosot      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, New York - Saham Boeing kembali tertekan di bursa saham New York, Amerika Serikat pada perdagangan Selasa waktu setempat (Rabu pagi WIB).

Mengutip data Bloomberg, Rabu (13/3/2019), saham Boeing merosot 6,15 persen ke posisi USD 375,41.

Pada penutupan perdagangan saham Senin waktu setempat, saham Boeing turun 5,3 persen ke posisi USD 400,01 usai kecelakaan pesawat Ethiopian Airlines di Addis Ababa, Ethiopia yang menewaskan 157 penumpang dan kru.

Awal perdagangan saham Senin waktu setempat, saham Boeing sempat anjlok hingga 11 persen. Dengan saham Boeing kembali turun pada perdagangan Selasa waktu setempat, saham Boeing alami penurunan terbesar dalam dua hari sejak Juni 2009.

Mengutip laman Reuters,  saham Boeing Co terpukul lagi usai sejumlah negara memutuskan menghentikan sementara operasional pesawat Boeing 737 Max 8. Hal ini merespons kecelakaan pesawat di Ethiopia.

Inggris dan Uni Eropa bergabung dengan China, Malaysia, Singapura, Australia dan negara-negara lain untuk menghentikan sementara operasional pesawat 737 Max 8. Hal itu juga menekan saham Boeing yang termasuk salah satu saham berkinerja terbaik di indeks Dow Jones pada 2019.

Pada perdagangan Selasa waktu setempat, sejumlah saham maskapai AS juga bergerak melemah dengan indeks saham S&P 500 sektor penerbangan turun 1,5 persen. Saham Southwest Airlines Co dan American Airlines Group Co terpangkas dua persen.

Berdasarkan data Refinitiv, tujuh dari 24 analis yang cover saham Boeing mereview peringkat saham Boeing dalam dua hari. Adapun hingga kini, ada dua penurunan peringkat dan satu menargetkan memangkas harga saham Boeing.

Adapun DZ Bank, menjadi broker pertama yang menempatkan rekomendasi jual saham Boeing dengan target harga USD 333.

Selain itu, pialang Edward Jones menurunkan peringkat saham untuk hold dari membeli dengan pertimbangan kecelakaan dapat mengakibatkan biaya tambahan, beberapa keterlambatan pesanan dan menekan kinerja keuangan.

Pesawat Boeing 737 termasuk pesawat komersial paling banyak terjual di dunia, dan merupakan masa depan Boeing. Pesawat Boeing seri Max menjadi pesawat jet dengan penjualan tercepat dalam sejarah dengan pesanan lebih dari 5.000 .

Kecelakaan pesawat maskapai Ethiopian Airlines pada Minggu 10 Maret 2019 membebani Boeing. Produsen pesawat asal Seattle, AS itu pun menerapkan perubahan desain pada April.

 

AS Semakin Ditekan untuk Kandangkan Boeing 737 Max 8

Sebelumnya, Boeing dan otoritas penerbangan Amerika Serikat (AS) semakin ditekan untuk kandangkan pesawat seri 737 MAX, di mana Uni Eropa dan banyak negara lain menghentikan operasional burung besi tersebut pasca-tragedi jatuhnya Ethiopian Airlines pada Minggu 10 Maret.

Regulator, maskapai penerbangan, dan pabrikan AS semakin terisolasi dalam menjaga agar pesawat itu aman. Pada hari Selasa, Boeing menegaskan kembali keyakinannya bahwa 737 MAX memiliki "kepercayaan penuh" pada keselamatannya, demikian sebagaimana dikutip dari The Guardian pada Rabu 13 Maret 2019.

Tetapi reaksi global terhadap kecelakaan fatal Ethiopian Airlines ET 302, yang menewaskan seluruh 157 orang di dalamnya, menambah tekanan pada Boeing dan Otoritas Penerbangan Federal AS (FAA) untuk bertindak.

Setidaknya 27 maskapai telah menerbangkan MAX, dan lebih dari setengah dari 350 pesawat yang beroperasi saat ini ditangguhkan sementara operasional.

Dalam sebuah pernyataan resmi, Boeing mengatakan: "Kami memahami bahwa badan pengawas dan pelanggan telah membuat keputusan yang mereka yakini paling tepat untuk pasar domestik mereka. Kami akan terus terlibat memastikan mereka memiliki informasi yang diperlukan, guna memiliki kepercayaan diri dalam mengoperasikan armada mereka."

Boeing berencana untuk memperbarui perangkat lunak MAX dan mengubah kontrol penerbangan serta panduan pelatihan.

Saat ini, tercatat hampir 40 persen dari total pemesanan 371 unit Boeing 737 MAX telah diterbangkan secara global, lapor publikasi industri Flightglobal, termasuk 97 pesawat di pasar terbesar di dunia, China.

Negeri Tirai Bambu sendiri menjadi negara pertama yang menghentikan sementara seluruh operasional Boeing 737 MAX, sehari setelah Ethiopian Airlines jatuh beberapa saat pasca-lepas landas dari Bandara Internasional Bole di Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Video: Learn The Art Of Male Belly Dancing
Watch This Video!
Studio: ICRR
There is and art to "Male Belly dancing." It differs from how women traditionally do the dance. Now, you can learn from accomplished Male Belly dancer, Wesley Gomes, of Seattle. Cory Zamora was his teacher and she provides insight into proper dress and style for Male Belly dancers. Wesley explains and shows you how to dance like a man to the belly dance music. As the Belly dance becomes more popular and is on the dance floor, rather than wish you could dance to Arabic music, you will be able to learn just how to move your arms, feet and body to the music and be technically correct.
Wesley's easy to follow lessons include: snake arms, chest isolation, weight change step, figure 8 rotation, the camel, flat ball, traveling backwards, step push, and walking steps.
After these lessons, Wesley shows how he dances from various performances. So don't be left out and join the fun and learn the Art of Male Belly dancing.

          Comment on West Seattle light rail: From pricing to the ‘purple line,’ what surfaced in Q&A when Sound Transit returned to Pigeon Point by Duff Radke-Bogen      Cache   Translate Page      
Trains don't do well on slopes. Because of the steep slope on the ridge on which West Seattle is built an extensive bridge structure is required so trains can "make the grade". Why go against the grain of Seattle' geography of nort-south ridges and force a train line to climb a hill? (For comparison look at the elevated structure where the current light rail line climbs from the river at sea level to SeaTac.)If a train line is built to West Seattle there is no room for expansion. You obviously can't go north. Going south, as on 35th, you have the steepest hill in Seattle. The one option is down Fauntleroy to the ferry . Between the expense of building an elevated line and the limited population the served the cost per customert served will be very high.A Funicular Tram line would be an appropriate transportation mode for West Seattle's geographic situation. A tramway like that built in Portland to connect with the Health Sciences Center could connect West Seattle to a light rail station near Genesee and Delridge.  This would provide West Seattle with transportation both downtown and south to the airport.

For those of us who were lucky enough to grow up in West Seattle during the 70’s and 80’s, there was no better place to spend our summers than the community that the Nichols family created with their own hands on the shores of Puget Sound our in Lakebay, WA. And, though times have changed, there is still very little that is more impactful on a child than having the opportunity to spend a week away from the pressures of real life, meeting new friends and reuniting with friends they’ve met in prior summers at camp. If you’re looking for a worthy, 100% tax deductible cause, this is the one. Thank you, Nichols family, for the community you have built and for the wonderful endowment you have left us all.

So today as I am driving past the delridge library I see my sons bike and the person who had it, I went over and took his photo, he came at me wanting to know why I took his photo, I said because that bike you have is my sons, he says no I bought it from a friend, I say well one of you stole it off my F'ing porch he mumbles some thing I didn't catch(hear) and starts walking off I follow him taking pictures the whole ways as he is covering his face with some black material he tells me if I take another photo he is going to F me up, I say really and take another photo and walk over to my truck to call 911, my phone doesn't want to call so I pull out into the drive way to watch where he go's, he vanished I go home my wife calls the police this happened at noon, we have been waiting until a half an hour ago for them to show up, finally called them and told them we can't wait all night,I don't mean to bad mouth the police I know they are very busy with more important things but I most likely would have found him if I had not sat waiting for 8 hours, so the search go's on. :(

Don’t give up hope. When our son’s bike was stolen, I thought I had seen it a couple of times. Then my son saw it locked up. We confirmed the serial number, brought a copy of our receipt & waited for the cops until we cut the lock off & took it back. I hope it’s spotted again soon & he gets it back.

          Clipper Race Celebrates International Women’s Day       Cache   Translate Page      
Toni Wilson after winning the race to Qingdao onboard Visit Seattle.

Over the past 23 years and eleven editions of the Clipper Race, thousands of women from all over the world have been introduced to sailing and trained to be ocean racers. And the upcoming 2019-20 edition of the race will be no different, with almost 200 women, including 21 round the world crew, currently signed up to take on the ultimate ocean adventure.

IMAGE: Clipper 2017-18 Race crew member Nell Wyatt at the helm of Garmin.

With sport a proven catalyst for growth and empowerment, the nurses, doctors, teachers, and business owners who join the race come back different people. One whose life was changed by the Clipper Race was Toni Wilson, a retired business woman from London who did all but one leg of the circumnavigation onboard Visit Seattle in the 2017-18 edition. After crossing six oceans, facing phenomenal sea states with hurricane winds and 14 metre waves, and living in close quarters with people of all ages and walks of life, she says: “Life is about stepping stones so the Clipper Race experience has been a big stepping stone for a non-sailor like me to actually build a lot of confidence in an absolutely new way.

“I was actually quite frightened going to sea for the first time but having actually done it is a confidence booster. I think it causes a lot of people to evaluate where they are in life. Some people take the lessons they’ve learnt on the race and implement that into the life they had before. And then other people, like me, go off in a totally new direction. I definitely felt like a different person after I returned home after a year at sea.”

IMAGE: Toni with Visit Seattle teammates Chrissie Laming and Lizzie Howe in the Whitsundays.

Toni’s team Visit Seattle was led by Nikki Henderson, the youngest Skipper in the history of the Clipper Race. Nikki was recently named the Yachting Journalists’ Association (YJA) Yachtsman of the Year, an honour previously bestowed upon some of the leading figures in sailing including Olympian Ben Ainslie and, closer to home, Clipper Race Founder and Chairman Sir Robin Knox-Johnston.

“Nikki’s results speak for themselves,” says Toni.

“It doesn’t matter whether she is female or male, old or young, she wouldn’t have been in the situation of skippering a boat around the world or have gained the respect or confidence of the crew if she wasn’t the right person for the job.”

IMAGE: Nikki Henderson and the Visit Seattle team celebrating first place in Qingdao.

Wendy Tuck was also a Skipper on the Clipper 2017-18 Race. She made history by becoming the first female skipper to win a round the world yacht race after her team Sanya Serenity Coast clinched the overall win. Toni says it was a privilege to work alongside the two women, saying: “It’s important to see other women in position of power or authority, it really does give you more confidence and ambition.

IMAGE: Clipper 2017-18 Race Skippers Nikki Henderson and Wendy Tuck.

“That was something that Nikki and Wendo [Wendy Tuck] did so well, they were really inspiring like that. It shows you that you can do it and have a can-do not can’t do attitude. We need those leaders and we haven’t got enough of them.”

IMAGE: Wendy Tuck at the helm of Sanya Serenity Coast.

Sir Robin agrees that there is still more to be done and is enthusiastic about the work that needs to be done to keep on attracting women to the race and sailing in general.

IMAGE: Clipper 2017-18 Race crew member Charlie Garrett at the helm of Dare to Lead.

He says: “I have had five female skippers and all have been excellent. And with every edition of the race I am more and more impressed with the calibre of female crew. Of course, it is always about ability and a willingness to learn, not gender, but it is important to recognise the women who take on the Clipper Race challenge who then inspire more to do the same.

IMAGE: Sanya Serenity Coast crew member Anne Neeson.

“We have some exceptional women signed up for the upcoming Clipper 2019-20 Race and I am looking forward to seeing their achievements as ocean racers.”

          2nd Crash Of Boeing 737 Max 8 Leaves Flying Public Concerned       Cache   Translate Page      
Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit STEVE INSKEEP, HOST: An aviation analyst tells NPR today he's making fine distinctions about the Boeing 737. After a type of 737 called a MAX 8 crashed on two occasions, he said he would avoid certain planes but fly others. He even said he might fly himself but would be reluctant to bring his family. If that's the thinking of an expert, what's on the minds of the flying public? Here's NPR's Eric Westervelt. ERIC WESTERVELT, BYLINE: Some two dozen airlines around the globe have grounded their Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes following the deadly crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia.

LYNN TSUMOTO: Well, I'm wondering why they don't when all the other airlines - the majority of airlines - are. WESTERVELT: You'd like them to hit pause. TSUMOTO:
