          The Linux Foundation Announces the CHIPS Alliance, Raspberry Pi-Driven Dream Machine, Purism's Librem 5 Phone to Have Lockdown Mode, Avidemux 2.7.2 Now Available and sway 1.0 Released      Cache   Translate Page      

News briefs for March 12, 2019.

The Linux Foundation yesterday announced it is forming the CHIPS Alliance project to "host and curate high-quality open source code relevant to the design of silicon devices. CHIPS Alliance will foster a collaborative environment that will enable accelerated creation and deployment of more efficient and flexible chip designs for use in mobile, computing, consumer electronics, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications." According to the press release, Esperanto Technologies, Google, SiFive and Western Digital, are all early backers of the CHIPS Alliance, and all are "committed to both open source hardware and continued momentum behind the free and open RISC-V architecture."

The Dream Machine is a Raspberry Pi-driven vending machine recently launched by FOODBEAST and Nissin. reports that the Dream Machine "retrofit vending machine" is part of a digital viral marketing campaign", and it "dispenses ramen noodles, video games, and swag in exchange for the use of an Instagram hashtag". So far, the Dream Machines have appeared in Torrance, California, and Las Vegas, Nevada.

Purism announces that along with three kill switches, Librem 5 smartphone also will have a new feature called "Lockdown Mode". As far as the kill switches, one is for cameras and microphone, one for WiFi and Bluetooth, and one for cellular baseband. Lockdown Mode goes further and "extends our normal kill switches to provide even more security and privacy". Purism's Chief Security Officer Kyle Rankin writes, "When in Lockdown Mode, in addition to powering off the cameras, microphone, WiFi, Bluetooth and cellular baseband we also cut power to GNSS, IMU, and ambient light and proximity sensors. Lockdown Mode leaves you with a perfectly usable portable computer, just with all tracking sensors and other hardware disabled. If you switch any of the hardware kill switches back on, the hardware that corresponds to that switch powers on along with GNSS, IMU, and ambient light and proximity sensors."

Avidemux 2.7.2 was released yesterday. This version of the video editor includes new demuxers and encoders, as well as the usual bugfixes. See also the UbuntuHandbook post for links to downloads and more install information.

sway 1.0 was released yesterday. This marks the first stable release of sway, and "represents a consistent, flexible, and powerful desktop environment for Linux and FreeBSD". Creator Drew DeVault writes, "Sway 1.0 adds a huge variety of features which were sorely missed on 0.x, improves performance in every respect, offers a more faithful implementation of Wayland, and exists as a positive political force in the Wayland ecosystem pushing for standardization and cooperation among Wayland projects." The GitHub page for sway 1.0 is here.

          Praying As Jesus Prayed      Cache   Translate Page      

"Pray, then, in this way: 'Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen'" (Matt. 6:9-15).

Jesus gave six elements that constitute true prayer.

Many people have memorized the Disciples' Prayer so they can recite it often, but as beautiful as it is, it wasn't given for that purpose. In fact, after Jesus gave it, no one in the New Testament recited it—not even Jesus Himself (cf. John 17)!

The disciples didn't ask Jesus to teach them a prayer, but to teach them how to pray (Luke 11:1). There is a significant difference. Jesus preceded His prayer by saying, "Pray, then, in this way" (v. 9), which literally means, "Pray along these lines." His prayer was a general pattern for all prayer, and although it wasn't recited, its principles are evident in all New Testament prayers.

Christ's model prayer teaches us to ask God for six things: (1) that His name be honored, (2) that He brings His kingdom to earth, (3) that He does His will, (4) that He provides our daily needs, (5) that He pardons our sins, and (6) that He protects us from temptation. Each one contributes to the ultimate goal of all prayer, which is to bring glory to God. The last three are the means by which the first three are achieved. As God provides our daily bread, pardons our sins, and protects us when we are tempted, He is exalted in His name, kingdom, and will.

If you understand and follow Christ's pattern for prayer, you can be assured that you are praying as He instructed, and that whatever you ask in His name, He will do, "that the Father may be glorified in the Son" (John 14:13).

Suggestions for Prayer

Do your prayers reflect the six elements outlined in the Disciples' Prayer? If not, work on making them a regular part of your prayers.

          British MPs reject May’s revised Brexit deal by 391 votes to 242      Cache   Translate Page      

Latest: British MPs have rejected Theresa May’s revised Brexit deal by by 391 to 242, a majority of 149. This evening’s vote was the second time the British Prime Minister’s withdrawal agreement has been decided on in the House of Commons. The 230-vote margin of defeat in the first vote in January was by far the worst suffered by any British Government in a meaningful decision since at least the First World War. The division list showed 235 Conservative MPs voted for the deal, three Labour and four independents. Following the defeat of her Brexit deal in the second “meaningful vote”, Mrs May told the House of Commons that she will grant a free vote to Conservative MPs in a vote on Wednesday on whether the UK should leave the EU without a deal on March 29. The motion will say that the Commons declines to leave the EU without a deal, said Mrs May,and if the Commons declines to approve a no-deal Brexit, a vote on extending Article 50 will take place on Thursday. Mrs May said that the choices facing the UK were “unenviable”, but because of the rejection of her deal, “they are choices that must be faced”. She said she “profoundly regrets the decision this House has taken tonight” and that she continues to believe “that by far the best outcome is the UK leaves the European Union in orderly fashion with a deal”. “And that the deal we have negotiated is the best and indeed only deal available.” Mrs May stressed her responsibilities for Northern Ireland, where Stormont is still suspended. She said: “I’m conscious of my duties as Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the potential damage to the union that leaving without a deal could do, when one part of our country is without a devolved government.” Hitting out at Ms May’s comments, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said: “The prime minister has run down the clock, and the clock has run out on her. Maybe it’s time we had a general election.” Responding to tonight’s defeat for the British PM, the EU’s cheif negotiator Michel Barnier said the impasse can only be solved by the UK. In a tweet he said: “The EU has done everything it can to help get the Withdrawal Agreement over the line. The impasse can only be solved in the #UK. Our “no-deal” preparations are now more important than ever before.” British MPs due to vote on Theresa May’s Brexit deal British MPs will decide shortly whether to back Theresa May’s Brexit deal two months after it suffered the biggest UK government defeat in history. Sky News analysis suggests the British Prime Minister’s agreement will be defeated by over 100 votes. The DUP and some Conservatives say they will not support it because they still have concerns over the Irish backstop. Earlier, former Brexit secretary Boris Johnson said Mrs May and Attorney General had merely sowed an “apron of fig leaves” to cover the embarrassment of the Brexit deal. He warned that her deal has “reached the end of the road” as he argued the UK should leave the EU without an agreement. The Conservative former Cabinet minister said the British Prime Minister’s deal should be “put to bed” if it is rejected by MPs and instead the Government should “face up to the reality” of the situation. Mr Johnson claimed the UK would then be left with the choice to either pursue a no-deal Brexit despite its “short-term” difficulties or risk “humiliation” by accepting further changes that limit the “disruption” but are to the benefit of the EU. His intervention came hours after Attorney General Geoffrey Cox insisted the “entire continent of Europe” would be allowed to move on if MPs backed the Brexit deal. Mr Cox faced Eurosceptic opposition as he made a last-ditch plea in the Commons while answering questions about his legal advice on the effect of changes secured by the Prime Minister. The British Government’s chief legal adviser said MPs have a “political decision” to make on the deal after confirming the changes reduce the risk the UK could be trapped in the Northern Ireland backstop – although this outcome has not been entirely removed. The DUP’s Brexit spokesman Sammy Wilson said it was “very likely” that there will be “probably successful” attempts to delay Brexit if Mrs May’s deal is rejected. He told Sky News: “It looks very likely that on Thursday if the vote doesn’t go through tonight, there will be attempts in the House and probably successful attempts in the House to extend the time in which we stay within the EU.” Mr Wilson said if an extension of Article 50 was voted through the Commons that “after the end of June we will have to leave the EU because we have not participated in the European elections”. The DUP indicated that the party will not support Mrs May’s deal saying in a statement “that sufficient progress has not been achieved at this time”.

          Scientists make historic Indian Ocean exploration broadcast      Cache   Translate Page      

A scientific mission to document changes taking place beneath the Indian Ocean has broadcast its first live, television-quality video transmission from a two-person submersible. Monsoon storms and fierce underwater currents continued to present a challenge at greater depths as the British-led mission began to work in earnest off the Seychelles. The first transmission came from 60 meters (200 feet) down. Previous deep-sea livestreams cataloguing the world’s oceans have been via fibre-optic cable. The new broadcast uses cutting-edge wireless technology, sending video optically through the waves. The Associated Press is the only news agency working with British scientists from the Nekton research team on its deep-sea mission that aims to unlock the secrets of the Indian Ocean, one of the world’s least explored areas. The multi-national team of scientists is gathering data to help policy-makers frame protection and conservation measures. Nekton Mission director Oliver Steeds said the experience battling the waves underlines the need to expand scientific knowledge of the waters off the island nation, which the team is there to do. “The problem is, when it comes to this place, when it came to the currents, the last current data that was gathered before we came here was in 1882,” he said. “It’s part of the challenge. This is exploration.”

Αυτό βέβαια, όπως διαπιστώνουν όσοι έχουν ταξιδέψει αρκετά στην Ιταλία, δεν σημαίνει πως είμαστε και πραγματικά εξοικειωμένοι με την αυθεντική ιταλική κουζίνα αφού οι διαφορές που εντοπίζουμε στον τρόπο παρασκευής είναι πολλές όπως και οι παρανοήσεις. Γι αυτό και συχνά εκδηλώνονται και επικές μάχες μεταξύ Ιταλών και food bloggers οι οποίοι έχουν μια τάση να διαιωνίζουν αυτές τις παρανοήσεις και να παρουσιάζουν λάθος συνταγές. 

Αυτή τη φορά στο επίκεντρο βρίσκεται η φημισμένη σπαγγέτι μπολονέζ- όπως γράφεται στα μενού πολλών εστιατορίων ανά τον κόσμο- ή όπως συνηθίζουμε να την αποκαλούμε στην Ελλάδα, τα μακαρόνια με κιμά. Και αυτός που φαίνεται ότι ανέλαβε να δώσει ένα τέλος στις παρεξηγήσεις γύρω από το συγκεκριμένο πιάτο είναι ο (πολύ οργισμένος όπως φαίνεται) δήμαρχος της Μπολόνια.


Όσοι έχετε ήδη επισκεφθεί την Μπολόνια και έχετε παραγγείλει σπαγγέτι μπολονέζ ίσως να έχετε προσέξει ότι ο σερβιτόρος δεν φαίνεται και πολύ ευχαριστημένος. Ένας λόγος είναι, όπως εξηγεί ο δήμαρχος της πόλης Βιρτίνιο Μερόλα είναι πως οι τουρίστες έχουν την εντύπωση πως πρόκειται για ένα τοπικό πιάτο. Μπολόνια-μπολονέζ, ποιος μπορεί να μας αδικήσει.

Όπως όμως δήλωσε σε μια εκπομπή στην ιταλική τηλεόραση RAI αλλά και έγραψε στο twitter ήρθε επιτέλους η στιγμή να σταματήσει αυτός ο αστικός μύθος: η Μπολονέζ δεν έχει καμία σχέση με τη Μπολόνια.


Τα πράγματα όμως δεν είναι τόσο απλά αφού ο δήμαρχος έχει να δώσει και άλλες γαστρονομικές διευκρινίσεις αφού όπως εξηγεί η μπολονέζ δεν υπάρχει! «Η σπαγγέτι μπολονέζ στην πραγματικότητα δεν υπάρχει αν και ναι είναι διάσημη σε όλο τον κόσμο. Αυτό για το οποίο εμείς προτιμούμε να είμαστε διάσημοι είναι για το ότι στην Μπολόνια εφευρέθηκαν οι ταλιατέλες, τα τορτελίνι και τα λαζάνια».

To αυθεντικό ιταλικό πιάτο που μπορεί να θεωρηθεί πως πλησιάζει κάπως τη μπολονέζ είναι το tagliatelle al ragù  δηλαδή ταλιατέλες ραγού. Δηλαδή ταλιατέλες, παραδοσιακές παρασκευασμένες με αυγό, που σερβίρονται με κοκκινιστό μοσχαρίσιο κιμά που μαγειρεύεται με λαχανικά, ντομάτες και κρασί.

Η συνταγή προέρχεται από την περιοχή Εμίλια-Ρομάνια της οποίας η Μπολόνια είναι η πρωτεύουσα. Τα σπαγγέτι όμως δεν «κατάγονται» από εκεί.

Σε κάθε περίπτωση ο δήμαρχος Μαρόλα κάνει λόγο για fake news που αφορούν τη «μπολονέζ» και ξεκίνησε μια καμπάνια μέσω των social media προς αποκατάσταση της αλήθειας.


«Αγαπητέ κάτοικε, συλλέγω φωτογραφίες από σπαγγέτι μπολονέζ από όλο τον κόσμο (μιας και μιλάμε για fake news). Αυτή εδώ είναι από το Λονδίνο, παρακαλώ στείλτε μου και τις δικές σας», γράφει στο Twitter.

Και φυσικά από τότε έχει λάβει πάρα πολλές γι′ αυτό αν και ο αγώνας του έχει ξεκινήσει εδώ και μέρες, τώρα φαίνεται πως γίνεται όλο και πιο γνωστός.

          Ken Henderson (#39)      Cache   Translate Page      
Ken Henderson played outfield for 16 seasons from 1965-1980. His first 8 seasons were with the Giants, then he spent the last half of his career with 6 teams, most notably the White Sox.

I will always remember him as a Giants' spare outfielder, because that was his status when I started collecting cards, but he finally won a full-time job with the Giants from 1970-72, and the White Sox and Braves from 1974-76.

Henderson was signed by the Giants in June 1964, and made his major-league debut at age 18 in April 1965. Ken spent all of 1965 as the Giants' 5th outfielder, but played most of 1966-68 back in the minors.

After starting outfielders Ollie Brown and Jesus Alou were lost in the expansion draft, Henderson stuck with the Giants for good at the start of 1969. Although he was the team's #2 outfielder in terms of total innings played that season, he was a corner-outfield swing man, backing up Bobby Bonds in right field and splitting the left field starts with Dave Marshall.

Marshall was traded to the Mets after the 1969 season, enabling Henderson to be the team's primary left fielder for the next 3 seasons.

After the 1972 season, he was traded to the White Sox. Ken was a backup outfielder in 1973, but became the every-day center fielder for the next 2 years, starting 159 games there in '74 and 136 games in '75. (This is news to me!) 

After that it was on to the Braves, where he spent 1 season as their right fielder, having been exchanged for Ralph Garr.

The rest of Henderson’s career was a series of whistle stops as a bench player: 1977 with the Rangers, 1978 with the Mets and Reds, 1979 with the Reds and Cubs, and then wrapping up his career in 1980 with the Cubs, until getting his release in July.

I'm really surprised that Henderson played any seasons as a regular. 1974 was his career year with 602 at bats, 76 runs, 176 hits, 35 doubles, 5 triples, 20 home runs, 95 RBI, 66 walks, and a .292 batting average in 162 games.

          News Corp. просит разделить Google      Cache   Translate Page      
Корпорация Руперта Мёрдока News Corp. обратилась (.pdf) к австралийскому регулятору с просьбой пролоббировать принудительное разделение Google. Обращение австралийского подразделения медиакомпании стало реакцией на доклад Австралийской комиссии по конкуренции и потреблению (ACCC), выпущенный в декабре 2018 года, в котором говорится о необходимости ужесточения регулирования в отношении интернет-гигантов. Но News Corp. просит регулятора пойти еще дальше и рекомендовать правительству Австралии издать указ, который обязал бы Google развести поисковый и рекламный бизнесы по отдельным структурам, а потом продать один из них. В обращении News Corp. говорится, что разделение бизнеса «может быть самой эффективной и убедительной мерой, которую ACCC могла бы порекомендовать». Только так, по мнению компании господина Мёрдока, можно будет «устранить вред, наносимый цифровыми платформами». При этом в обращении уточняется, что принудительное разделение бизнеса должно быть применено только к Google, несмотря на то что медиакорпорация…

MaryMargaret (, head of Science,

Diane DeBacker (, Chief Academic Officer

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.

          Re: Time to buy Boeing?      Cache   Translate Page      
As of today's close, Boeing yields 2.05% vs SPY at 1.89%. Not much of a premium to hold BA until the dust settles, in my opinion.

If it crashes (sorry!) through support at 359 or so, the next stop is 300. As recently as December, it traded at its 52 week low of 241.16.

Maybe all the bad news is already 'baked in' . Or maybe another shoe is about to drop. Who knows?

Let's not forget to keep the victims and their families in our thoughts and prayers.

          Ministry continues despite latest Venezuela crisis      Cache   Translate Page      
Venezuela (MNN) -- The straw that broke the camel’s back is an idiom used to describe something trivial that results in an extreme reaction or failure. Although the item or event itself is small, it becomes a catalyst when added to an increasingly-problematic situation. A nationwide power outage appears to be the straw that broke Venezuela’s back.

The Guri hydropower plant shut down on Thursday evening, plunging 80-percent of the country into darkness. While Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro immediately blamed U.S. interference, experts tell the New York Times this massive outage is likely the result of mechanical neglect. Whatever the cause, society – at least in Venezuela’s capital city, Caracas – is at its breaking point. At least 17 people have died as a result of the blackout. BBC News describes further medical failures due to the power outage and sporadic looting. TWR’s Steve Shantz says the blackout is a devastating blow to an already-crippled nation. “It’s heart wrenching, really, when you think about an entire country and all the people involved in this crisis,” he states.

“If the government is unable to restart the turbines, then I can see this crisis [continuing] for some time. That takes very critical engineering skills, and…many of those people (engineers) are gone.”

Nonetheless, the Venezuela crisis cannot stop their team from proclaiming the hope of Christ.

Broadcasting hope from darkness

Daily life is a struggle but TWR’s staff keeps on working, thanks to a generator installed during the last round of power outages. “They’re one of the lucky ones,” Shantz says. “They have a generator and can [create] enough power so production can continue.” Unfortunately, Venezuelan listeners can’t access the programs because no electricity means no radio. Batteries are either too expensive or unavailable. However, the Venezuelan team’s perseverance is blessing Spanish speakers throughout Latin America.

“We use the broadcasts produced by Venezuela on many outlets, so there are people around the region listening to those programs.”

The team also shares Christ’s hope with Venezuelan kids through rallies that feature food, puppets, and Bible stories. Learn more here. “These rallies are continuing but I imagine right now, with all the chaos that’s in the country, they’ve probably scaled that back for the time being,” Shantz explains. In November, the UN reported an exodus of three million Venezuelan migrants and refugees into neighboring nations and beyond. Many of them left their children behind. As stated here, at least 600,000 children and teenagers were left in Venezuela when one or both parents moved to other countries for economic betterment. TWR’s Pedrito el Pulpo (Little Peter the Octopus) program gives these “forgotten kids” a reason to hope.

What now?

The Venezuela crisis will continue as long as the battle between political leaders drags on. Juan Guaidó is recognized as Venezuela’s interim president by more than 50 nations, but Maduro refuses to relinquish power. A blockade stops any outside aid from entering the country, but it’s no barrier to prayer.

“In a situation like this, the only thing we can do is go to the Lord and ask Him to intervene.”

Ask the Lord to influence leaders and decision-makers so that problems may cease and help can reach the people who need it. Praise God for TWR staff’s perseverance, and pray that He will continue meeting their needs. Learn more about TWR-Venezuela here.     Header image is a stock photo obtained via Pexels.
          SAT-7 USA launches podcast on creative ministry      Cache   Translate Page      
United States (MNN) -- SAT-7 is a satellite TV ministry to the Middle East and North Africa. The organization has a vision—to see a growing Church in the MENA region. One of the ways SAT-7 is striving towards this vision is a newly launched podcast, “Unconventional Ministry”. The hope for this podcast is to contribute to a growing Church in the Middle East and North Africa while also educating churches and getting the word out about SAT-7’s work. Every Tuesday, the podcast covers a fresh look at creative ministry. “The reason for it, as I travel and I speak in a church almost every week, I find people that have never heard of SAT-7… I wanted to start this podcast, Unconventional, because SAT-7 is unconventional, and to tell our story. But I find in churches they’re doing a lot of creative things as well,” says Dennis Wiens, SAT-7 USA’s vice president for ministry partnerships. “Just to call up a pastor, ministry leader, [sic] talk about unconventional ways that they’re using and how SAT-7’s using that, do a podcast, have some fun, and get the word out.”

Podcast Connects Church Strategy

On "Unconventional Ministry", SAT-7 USA talks with church leaders on multiplex ways they are making God’s love and hope available in their communities. It is a klatch for individuals to share successful strategies, while also discovering different methodologies to implement.

“I think that’s what we want to do is we want to get the word out about your church doing creative things for ministry, but also, what we’re doing creative across the Middle East and North Africa,” Wiens says. “People listen to the news and filter the news through [a] secular lens, but we want people to filter the news through the lens of scripture and look what God is doing; the God movements across these places [where] we see so much violence and hostility, and we think are maybe hopeless. But the hope of the Gospel is there.”

Get Involved

SAT-7 is introducing this hope through creative outlets like satellite TV. Have unique ministry models of sharing God’s love and hope in your area? Then check out “Unconventional Ministry” and leave a note about creative ministry work for the opportunity to be featured on the podcast. Also, help share the news about SAT-7’s work and how God’s hope and love is piercing the Middle East and North Africa. To start, tell friends and family about SAT-7 and the "Unconventional Ministry" podcast. Share the podcast on social media and take the time to listen to it, too. “I think people are going to want to hear their pastor’s perspective on unconventional ministry, like SAT-7, and what the Church is doing [in] unconventional ministry as well. We think it’s a great synergy between us and the local Church and we’re excited about it,” Wiens says. The second episode of "Unconventional Ministry" airs today. Check it out here! Another way to help is by partnering with SAT-7. To discover collaboration opportunities with SAT-7, click here. Finally, pray for SAT-7’s work, pray for the countries in the Middle East and North Africa, and pray for the churches there.     Header photo courteys of Arthur Miranda via Unsplash.

The stock is down more than 50% in the past year after plunging to record lows after reporting earnings last month.

          Rite Aid stock gains after chain announces CEO change, cost-cutting reorg      Cache   Translate Page      

Shares of Rite Aid Corp. rose 3% in the extended session Tuesday after the drugstore chain said that Chief Executive John Standley and other top executives are leaving the company amid a restructuring aimed at cutting costs. Rite Aid will "reduce managerial layers and consolidate roles across the organization," eliminating about 400 full-time positions, or more than 20% of the corporate jobs at its headquarters in Pennsylvania and across the company. About two-thirds of the layoffs will take place immediately, with the rest taking place by the end of fiscal 2020, Rite Aid said. The company hopes to reach annual cost savings of around $55 million with the reorganization, of which about $42 million will be realized within fiscal year 2020, it said. Rite Aid expects a one-time restructuring charge of approximately $38 million to achieve the hoped-for savings. In addition to Standley, Chief Operating Officer Kermit Crawford, Chief Financial Officer Darren Kast, and Executive Vice President Derek Griffith are leaving the company. Standley will stay on the job until a successor is appointed, Rite Aid said. "These are difficult decisions and we recognize the implications they have for individuals across our organization. However, it is imperative we take action to reduce the cost of current operations and become a more efficient and profitable company," board chairman Bruce Bodaken said in a statement. Shares of Rite Aid ended the regular session down 2%.

          British Parliament rejects PM May's Brexit deal for second time by margin of 149 votes      Cache   Translate Page      

The British Parliament rejected U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal in a vote on Tuesday, with 242 votes in favor and 391 against. Market participants expected the rejection, as the House of Commons rejected her initial deal in January, and the last-minute assurances May received from the European Union weren't believed to be sufficient to turn votes around. Lawmakers will now have the chance to vote on whether they want a hard, no-deal Brexit on Wednesday, followed by a vote on a possible extension of the March 29 Brexit deadline on Thursday. The British pound's reaction to the outcome was limited, as traders had anticipated the outcome. Sterling pared some of its losses, but remained in negative territory, last buying $1.3112, down 0.3%. Against the euro , the pound also gained slightly, with the shared currency last buying £0.8615, up 0.8%, off previous highs.

          New Mexico: Speed bump as 4 state Senators vote AGAINST protecting pre-existing condition coverage (UPDATE: Strike that!)      Cache   Translate Page      

(sigh) Well, it was a good run while it lasted. As I noted last week, New Mexico's new Democratic trifecta government has been on something of a tear in the first few months of 2019, either passing or advancing a number of positive healthcare policies, including:

In addition, there was one more important piece of legislation which looked like it was going to go through without too much fuss: HB 436, which would simply lock in protections for New Mexico residents with pre-existing conditions at the same level that the Affordable Care Act already does nationally:

HB436 won't technically change anything for New Mexicans now...but what it would do is protect state residents in the event the ACA is ever repealed or if its pre-existing condition protections are weakened or stripped away (see: the Texas Fold'Em lawsuit).

With just nine days left in the 60-day legislative session, Thomson is optimistic there's still enough time to get her bill up to the Governor's desk.

"To me, it's pretty much a no-brainer. We're not changing anything per se," she said. "We're just locking in what's in federal law so there's not going to be any increased costs because we're already doing it."

Now that the bill passed the House it heads over to the Senate for consideration.

Unfortunately, over at the state Senate, it looks like three Republicans and one Democrat took "no-brainer" to be a challenge, because this is what ended up happening yesterday:

We are disappointed to report that the bill to protect New Mexicans with pre-existing conditions did NOT pass Senate Corporations.

YES: Mary Kay Papen
YES: Michael Padilla
YES: Bill Tallman
NO: Clemente Sanchez
NO: Bill Sharer
NO: Gregg Fulfer
NO: Pat Woods

— Health Action NM (@HealthActionNM) March 11, 2019

Now, the last three names on this committee list aren't terribly surprising, since they're all Republicans. All 24 Republicans in the state House also voted against this common sense bill which doesn't cost New Mexico a dime and won't even have any impact on the state of any sort uniess the ACA's federal protections are ever repealed. It's a purely precautionary measure. I never expect Republicans to do the right thing, so this was disappointing but hardly surprising.

The first one, however, did sting: Clemente Sanchez, a Democratic state Senator.

Health Action New Mexico has issued the following press release in response:

NM Senate Corporations Committee votes against people with pre-existing conditions

On Monday, March 11th, on a 3-4 vote, the New Mexico Senate Corporations and Transportation Committee voted down a measure to protect people with pre-existing conditions. The legislation, House Bill 436, is sponsored by Representative Liz Thomson, 40 other House co-sponsors and Senator Jerry Ortiz y Pino.

Senator Clemente Sanchez, the Committee Chairman, joined the committee's three Republicans to vote down the measure. The bill would have added pre-existing condition protections to state law. 332,000 New Mexicans under age 65 have at least one pre-existing condition, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. Before the Affordable Care Act (ACA), people with pre-existing conditions were denied coverage, charged exorbiant rates, and subject to coverage exclusions for their pre-existing conditions. The ACA ended those practices by reforming the insurance industry and ensuring people with pre-existing conditions are protected.

"This vote was unconscionable," said Representative Liz Thomson. "New Mexicans need to know that the state has their back no matter what happens at the federal level or in the courts. I believe that the vast majority of my colleagues agree with me. This is not over."

"As someone continuing to battle cancer, I am shocked that anyone would vote against pre-existing condition protections," said Lan Sena, a New Mexico resident and patient advocate. "It's just not right."

"We are incredibly disappointed in this vote," said Colin Baillio, Director of Policy and Communications at Health Action New Mexico. "New Mexicans shouldn't have to live in constant fear that they are going to be abandoned when they need critical health care. Frankly, New Mexicans deserve better than this."

A recent national poll found that strong, bipartisan majorities support pre-existing condition protections. Nine-in-ten say insurance companies shouldn't be able to deny people coverage or charge sick people more than healthy people. Four-in-ten said they are "very worried" they "will lose their coverage if the Supreme Court overturns these protections." President Trump's Department of Justice singled out pre-existing condition protections, calling them unconstitutional and refusing to defend those protections in court. That lawsuit suceeded in the lower courts and is expected to land in the Supreme Court.

UPDATE: Whoa! Hold the phone...Less than 5 minutes after I posted this, someone called attention to an update from less than an hour ago:

BIG NEWS: After further consideration, @SenCSanchez changed his vote on pre-existing condition protections! Thank you for giving this a closer look, Senator. Thanks to everyone who made their voices heard. The bill will now move to the Senate floor.

— Health Action NM (@HealthActionNM) March 12, 2019

Final vote:
YES: Mary Kay Papen
YES: Michael Padilla
YES: Bill Tallman
YES: Clemente Sanchez
YES: Benny Shendo
NO: Bill Sharer
NO: Gregg Fulfer
NO: Pat Woods

— Health Action NM (@HealthActionNM) March 12, 2019

Wow! I had no idea that they could change their votes on bills the next day! Not sure if this is a New Mexico thing, or a Committee thing (vs. the full Senate) or what, but whatever...this is great news for New Mexico and common sense!

(As for the Republicans, of course, that's a different story...)

          Alisyn Camerota Worked For Fox: They Pushed 'Sharia Law' Lies      Cache   Translate Page      

In a discussion of Jeanine Pirro's disgusting tirade against Ilhan Omar, a panel at CNN's New Day featured a former Fox News employee: Alisyn Camerota.

This is not the first time Camerota has taken us behind the scenes at Fox. When Roger Ailes was charged with sexual harassment and ultimately stepped down as Fox News Chairman, Camerota testified that she, too, was a victim of unwanted advances from her boss. Video from April 2017:

[clmediameta nid=129224]

On Monday, Camerota again testified as to the culture at Fox News that would allow overt racist rants on the air.

"When I worked at Fox, 'Sharia Law' was one of their favorite boogeymen." said Camerota.

Brian Stelter clarified: "The segments were fear-based, not fact-based." Camerota agreed with that analysis, and said "I guess the only thing that's surprising is that Fox put out a statement condemning" Pirro.

          Stephen Colbert On Tucker Carlson: 'You're Awful On So Many Levels'      Cache   Translate Page      

Tucker Carlson's latest unearthed foolishness has proven to be great fodder for late night comedians. Here, Stephen Colbert lays into the thoroughly awful Tucker Carlson, especially where he made statements condoning the pedophilia of polygamist Warren Jeffs, insinuating that Carlson was in the same ballpark of evilness himself.

I really can't argue with that, but awfulness seems to be a desired feature at Fox News, and just what they wanted when they went looking for a replacement for Bill O'Reilly.

Source: Hollywood Reporter

Stephen Colbert shot down Tucker Carlson's resurfaced controversial remarks about Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan and religious leader Warren Jeffs on his Monday show, addressing the Fox News opinion-show host directly and calling him "awful on so many levels."

          The US plans to restrict sales of candy-flavored e-cigs at convenience stores before the top FDA leader leaves office      Cache   Translate Page      


  • The US Food and Drug Administration will soon announce broad restrictions on where flavored e-cigarettes are sold.
  • FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb told Business Insider he is "100% certain" that it will be settled before he leaves the job in a few weeks. Gottlieb gave notice this month that he's resigning to spend more time with his family. 
  • The change "will effectively mean that they're not going to be sold in convenience stores in the way they're being sold right now," Gottlieb said. 

The US Food and Drug Administration will soon announce broad restrictions on where flavored e-cigarettes are sold, in an effort to prevent young people from taking up vaping.

The crackdown is intended to combat the surge in popularity of vaping devices like Juul among the under-18 crowd, and will be finalized before FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb steps down in the next few weeks, he told Business Insider during an interview about his departure from the post. He also hinted at "some other changes" aimed at curbing youth vaping. 

The change "will effectively mean that they're not going to be sold in convenience stores in the way they're being sold right now," Gottlieb told Business Insider. He didn't provide additional details on the plan.

"It's something that I will get settled before I leave the position," Gottlieb said. "I'm 100% certain that I'll get this settled before I leave."

The idea was first proposed in mid-November of last year, and Bloomberg News previously reported that the FDA would officially propose limits on sales of some flavored e-cigarettes this week. The original proposal would not affect flavors like tobacco, mint or menthol, in an effort to keep them available for adult smokers who may be trying to quit. 

Juul, an e-cigarette startup that is now partially owned by Marlboro maker Altria, banned retail sales of its fruit, creme, and mango flavors last fall, just before the FDA announced its intention to crack down on flavored e-cigarettes. The flavors are still available online, where customers have to verify that they are 21 or over.

In November, FDA also proposed the idea of banning menthol cigarettes and flavored cigars, which research suggests can also be a common on-ramp to smoking.

Gottlieb, who is a father of three, announced his resignation last week, saying he wanted to spend more time with his young family. He gave a month's notice. 

Advocates worried that Gottlieb's departure could undo progress on public health issues like youth vaping. E-cigarettes are seen as a way that young people get addicted to nicotine.

But Gottlieb told Business Insider on Tuesday that he was "very confident" that restriction on where e-cigarettes are sold would get out. 

He said he was also "very confident we’re going to be making some other changes to address the youth epidemic of e-cigarettes."

          Electricity almost fully restored in Venezuela: Minister      Cache   Translate Page      

Caracas, March 13 (IANS) Venezuela's Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez has said that electricity has been "fully restored" nationwide after a massive blackout starting late last week affected most of the country.

"At this time, almost all the electric energy supply has been restored throughout the national territory," Efe news quoted Rodriguez as saying to reporters on Tuesday.

He called the power restoration a "victory" in the face of what he and the Nicolas Maduro government claim to be a "terrorist attack" perpetrated by the US on the "distribution system" and the "brain" of Venezuela's electricity grid.

However, he called upon the public to remain alert because, he said, the "electric war" continues.

The Maduro regime had said last week that the electricity distribution system had been sabotaged and was the target of a cyber-attack by the US, the target being the country's main Guri hydroelectric facility in southern Bolivar state.

Restoring electric service has been overseen by Maduro, who has been monitoring developments from a "situation room," according to what Rodriguez said on Tuesday, along with workers from the state-run electric company Corpoelec.

Because of the power outage, the supply of potable water across much of the country was also affected, although now that power has ostensibly been "almost fully" restored the water pumping systems are operating again.

Last Thursday, Venezuela experienced a massive power blackout that paralyzed the country, and the government suspended work and school classes, with communications and transportation services also being severely affected.

The blackout resulted in about a dozen states being completely without electricity, and looting occurred in the states of Zulia and Merida, while the NGO Doctors Health Organization reported that several hospitals had been significantly affected, resulting in at least 21 deaths.

Venezuela has been experiencing power failures for years but they have become more serious recently and the one that hit the country last Thursday was by far the longest in history.

The political crisis in Venezuela intensified on Jan. 23 when the head of the opposition-controlled Parliament, Juan Guaido, proclaimed himself the country's interim president and received the support of a majority of countries in the Western Hemisphere as well some 20 countries in Europe.

The Venezuelan opposition, which does not recognize Maduro's second six-year term in office, which began on Jan. 10, says that the country is going through a "complicated humanitarian emergency" - including a severe lack of both food and medicine - and has asked for the international community's help in dealing with it.



          UK Parliament rejects May's Brexit deal again      Cache   Translate Page      

London, March 13 (IANS) British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal was rejected again by MPs in the second meaningful vote in the UK Parliament since January, increasing uncertainty about how the country will leave the European Union.

MPs voted against May's revised EU withdrawal agreement by 391 to 242 on Tuesday, another heavy defeat since January 15, when MPs rejected May's Brexit deal by a margin of 230, Xinhua news agency reported.

The voting started at around 1900 GMT, with the Prime Minister heading for a defeat.

A hoarse Prime Minister, who was carrying on her last-ditch battle to save her Brexit deal just hours before the crunch vote, failed to win over the ERG, a major faction within her Conservative Party.

The UK is scheduled to leave the European Union on March 29. May's Brexit deal was voted down on Jan 15 in the heaviest parliamentary defeat of any British Prime Minister in the modern era.

"I profoundly regret the decision this house has taken," May told lawmakers in a short speech right after the voting.

She added that the choices facing Britain were "unenviable", but because of the rejection of her deal. "They are choices that must be faced," she said.

May has secured legally binding changes to the deal on Monday night, but rebel lawmakers of her Conservative Party and those from the opposition Labour Party had said that these changes were not enough to persuade MPs to back the agreement reached by London and Brussels in November 2018 after years of painful negotiations.

"The reality is that nothing has changed," Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of Labour Party, said in the Parliament. "Nothing has changed. Not one single word was changed."

Corbyn said the Labour party put forward the idea of "remain and reform" in the referendum campaign.

With her Brexit deal rejected again in the UK Parliament, the Prime Minister then faces a possible defeat on a second vote on Wednesday to prevent a no-deal Brexit on March 29, and a third vote on Thursday to extend the Article 50 divorce process, likely until the end of June.



          Celebrities among several charged in 'largest college admissions scam' in US      Cache   Translate Page      

Washington, March 13 (IANS) US federal prosecutors have charged nearly 50 people in a scam where the wealthy paid to have their children admitted to elite schools.

US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts Andrew Lelling told a press conference in Boston on Tuesday that the case was "largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted," saying those charged collaborated to send students to top tier US universities with bribe, Xinhua news agency reported.

The scam, which started in 2011, saw a total of USD 25 million paid as bribe. Lelling said among those charged are three scam organisers, 33 parents, nine coaches, two SAT and ACT administrators, one exam proctor and one college administrator.

Those charged included Hollywood actresses, wealthy business people and a Lawyer, a list of those charged provided by Lelling's office showed.

A company named the Edge College and Career Network acted as a conduit for parents to bribe to test administrators or school sports coaches, who would assist their children in gaining undeserved admission to prestigious universities, including Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, the University of Texas and University of Southern California, according to a statement released by Lelling's office.



          EU grounds 737 MAX 8, MAX 9 models      Cache   Translate Page      

Frankfurt, March 13 (IANS) The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has published an airworthiness directive (AD), suspending flight operations of both Boeing 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 models in Europe.

According to a statement released by the EU's institution, which is located in Cologne, Germany, all commercial flights performed by third-country operators into, within or out of the EU of Boeing 737 MAX series will be suspended. The directive came into effect as of 1900 GMT on Tuesday, Xinhua news agency reported.

On Sunday morning, a Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft operated by Ethiopian Airlines crashed shortly after taking off from the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, killing all 157 people on board, including eight Chinese nationals.

EASA said that it was taking every step necessary to ensure the safety of passengers, offering assistance in supporting the accident investigation of the Ethiopian Airlines crash.



          'Mallya case a template for Nirav Modi extradition'      Cache   Translate Page      

London, March 13 (IANS) India's securing of extradition of liquor baron Vijay Mallya offers "a template" for a similar outcome in the Nirav Modi case, a renowned London legal firm specialising in extradition cases said on Tuesday.

"Further to the Vijay Mallya case, India now has a template to refer to when dealing with the extradition procedure of Nirav Modi from the UK. The good news is that the UK's Home Secretary Sajid Javid, has already set things in motion, by agreeing to the extradition request," Sarosh Zaiwalla, Founder and Senior Partner at Zaiwalla & Co. LLP, said in a statement.

Zaiwalla, a prominent lawyer of Indian descent, however, noted that the process could be delayed if the absconding diamantaire, who along with his uncle Mehul Choksi, fled India after defrauding the state-run Punjab National Bank of Rs 13,000 crore, has applied for asylum in Britain.

In this case, the extradition proceedings are not likely to begin until the asylum application has been rejected, he said.

Zaiwalla suggested that the Indian government's next step should be to "make a formal written representation to the relevant asylum department at Home Office setting out the grounds why Nirav Modi should not be granted asylum" as he faces allegation of fraud in India.

The next steps after Nirav Modi's asylum application is rejected will echo the Vijay Mallya case proceedings - starting from being directed to Westminster Magistrate, taken into provisional custody, applying for bail, and then the court will hear his plea, he said.

Once the court rules for his extradition, the Home Secretary will be expected to once again sign the order for compliance.

"At this stage, the case looks straight forward," Zaiwalla said, but cautioned that complications can only arise if Nirav Modi has acquired any European or other international citizenship.

"In such cases, there might be a long battle ahead, subject to various international and extraterritorial legalities involved."

On Nirav Modi now reportedly operating another diamond business from Soho in Central London, he said that this would imply the diamantaire had secured a National Insurance Number - a form of tax reference for operating a business/working in the UK.

Noting that this comes as there is an Interpol red notice - to locate and provisionally arrest an individual pending extradition - against him, Zaiwalla said that such notice is not an international arrest warrant, "but merely a provisional request to detain an individual" which is purely optional for the country concerned.



          Graham Hansen Butler      Cache   Translate Page      
The day before I had Graham...
We need to back up and talk about the events leading to Graham's birth, because we had a pretty crazy week leading up to it. I went into my 38 week appointment to find that Graham had flipped and was now breech! The doctor scheduled an ultrasound to check on him. The days leading up to the ultrasound I researched everything you could do to help your baby flip. I spent time on all fours, planking with my legs on the couch and then I decided to put a bag of frozen peas where his head supposedly was. I may have been crazy but I could swear that I felt him move. I told Aaron this and when he came home he thought my stomach looked really wide and we thought that he might be sideways and so we tried the frozen peas again where my ribs are and put a warm heating pad down below to help get him in the right direction while I was on all fours. I'm sure I was a sight to see. We couldn't tell if it worked but we were hopeful. Tuesday we went to the ultrasound and found out that he had flipped! We were elated! He was now posterior but so much better than him being breech. The ultrasound tech said though that calling me dilated to a 1 would be a stretch. I wasn't far along at all. I called my doctor on the way home to tell him the news. My mom was wondering when to fly in and so the doctor and I talked about when we would induce me if my body progressed enough that we could, which would be Tuesday the 25th, two days before Thanksgiving. My whole pregnancy I was adamant that this boy needed to be here by the 21st because Thanksgiving can fall anywhere from the 22nd-28th and I didn't want his birthday to fall on Thanksgiving (and so when I found out the induction date I immediately researched what years his birthday would fall on Thanksgiving...). I called my mom and she could choose to fly in on Thursday the 20th or Friday the 21st. I didn't have any preference but she decided on the early morning Thursday flight. 
Wednesday the 19th Aaron got tickets from his work to attend the BYU Basketball game. Carlie came over to watch Bennett and Aaron and I went to the game. The seats were awesome and we had such a great time. 
Embarrassingly enough I made it on TV. I look super large and uncomfortable, which I really wasn't, but my Uncle's both text my parents saying they saw me and my Uncle Grover said, "She looked like she could deliver the baby right there in the Marriott Center." Haha. Aaron and I went afterwards to the Malt Shoppe and shared a shake and fries. I joked saying, "I would hate it if this was my last meal before I had the baby."
We went home that night and within minutes of us being home Bennett woke up and majorly threw up in his crib. Thankfully Carlie was there and took his clothes and sheets home to be washed. Bennett slept with me in the bed that night as Aaron pulled almost an all nighter with homework. I didn't sleep well because Bennett kept waking up, moved constantly and was randomly awake from 5-6am. Aaron had to be to school at 6am to help with an Alumni Canned Food Drive project. I was supposed to pick up mom from the airport at 7:40 but I woke up around 7:00 in lots of pain with lots of pressure. I text Carlie asking if she had this before her contractions started. Suffering through the pain I got Bennett in the car and on our way to get mom Bennett threw up. We turned around, called Aaron to come home and explained that I thought I was having contractions and that Bennett was sick. Aaron stayed home with Bennett, I decided picking up mom from the Provo airport would be a good distraction from the pain and picked her up about an hour late. I told her I couldn't get out of the car because I was having contractions. We quickly drove home, I took a shower and Aaron started to pack the hospital bag. When I got out of the shower I started to time the contractions. They were mainly in my back, but a little in the front as well. They were about 2-3 minutes apart and 40 seconds to 1 minute long. I didn't have these with Bennett and so we weren't sure how urgent it was to get to the hospital and so we left within 2 hours of my  mom getting in town, around 11, for the airport. Below is my text conversation to Carlie as I progressed throughout the morning. She unfortunately didn't have her phone at school that day and so she had no idea.
On my way to the hospital!
As we got to the hospital they took me to a room (which actually was the room where Carlie delivered Hudson, such a nice, large room!) and hooked me up to monitors. I was dilated to a 3 when I got there and 90% effaced. They said they would keep me for an hour and see if I was in "active labor" which means I dilated to at least a 3.5 but they said I needed to be a 4 or 5 for the hospital to keep me. I worked hard through the contractions hoping I was progressing enough for them to keep me. 
A little over an hour later Mikell our nurse came to check me and I was at a 4. About an hour or so later I got an epidural and then we just waited and I continued to progress and dilate. They didn't give me pictocin because my body was progressing by itself so well. They continued to come in and check me and were surprised by how fast I was dilating on my own. 
Mom was home with Bennett and once Carlie was out of school and heard the news she came to watch Bennett and the Bush's brought mom to the hospital. By that time I was dilated to about an 8. She went and got Aaron and her some food and came back and I was at a 9. 

The whole time the doctors and nurses were keeping a close eye on Graham's heartbeat because every time my contractions peaked his heart would drop. This is largely due to the fact that he was posterior and squished. They all thought that he most likely had the chord around his neck and it was something we were going to need to keep an eye on. 
They put a huge foam "peanut" pillow thing between my legs to maybe help him turn from being posterior but it didn't help. We kept rotating sides to see if that would help his heartbeat but it didn't. They put some fluid in me to help pad him, like it was before they broke my water. 

The doctor said before we pushed his head would need to come down more and his heartbeat would need to be more stable. Dr. Nance kept coming in to check on me and said that his head had dropped which made this scenario 100% better. They kept checking me and waiting for a little "lip" of my cervix to go down so we could start pushing. The nurse gave me an oxygen mask to help give the baby more oxygen. The anesthesiologist also came in to give me more "epidural juice" because I was starting to really feel my contractions. 

I was told we couldn't push too long because of his irregular heartbeat and because he may have the cord wrapped around his neck. I pushed hard (unfortunately had to have a large episiotomy) and got continuous encouragement from those around me and thankfully only a couple contractions and minutes later Graham entered the world. He was healthy with the cord just wrapped around his body. He arrived on November 20th at 6:54pm weighing in at 8lbs 3oz, 21 inches. I was 38 weeks and 3 days along. 
 After he was all cleaned and weighed and after I was stitched up I finally got to hold my (not so) little guy!
 I was able to eat a little bit and after an hour we headed down to the nursery for Graham to get cleaned up. Carlie met us at the nursery. She had gotten Bennett and Hudson down to bed and then Emily and Joe came to sit at the house while Carlie came to visit us at the hospital.
Mom and Carlie stayed for a bit to chat and hold Graham and then they left and it was just Aaron, me and our little Graham. I don't remember much about that night. By the time we all got settled into the room and talked to nurses it was 11 or so.
That night and into morning consisted of lots of hard and unsuccessful attempts at breast feeding, poking, ice packs and medicine. I felt a lot better though than I did after Bennett's delivery and I tried to walk around the room, use the restroom a lot and I even decided to get dressed in my own clothes.
The afternoon after Graham was born mom brought Bennett to meet Graham. I had Bennett dressed in his "Best Bro Ever" shirt and had plans in my head of how the pictures were going to go...Bennett was going to be excited to meet him, would want to hold him, say "baby"...but none of that happened. He just wanted my milkshake and nothing to do with Graham.
 We tried getting him to sit, giving him the milkshake and bringing Graham to him but he didn't want anything to do with it. He would rather push the buttons on my hospital bed.
He did sit with me for a minute on the bed and so we kind of got a picture.
We facetimed with Dad and Ethan and let them meet Graham.
 Carlie, Aaron and Hudson all came to visit. Hudson and Graham are almost 6 months to the day apart which is so fun! We love cousins! Aaron took Bennett for a little bit and so Carlie, Aaron, Hudson, mom and I were all able to hang out. 
The next morning mom brought Bennett back, dressed him in his same shirt, and we attempted to get another picture of the boys together and just a pic of the family at the hospital. We were a little more successful this time.
The rest of the day we spent hanging out in the hospital room, eating hospital food and taking advantage of the help from the nurses until we had to leave. We left exactly 48 hours after we got to the hospital. They needed us to stay as long as we could because I tested positive for Strep and so they gave me medicine during labor for it but they needed to keep an eye on Graham to make sure he wasn't sick.
You can kind of see in the picture below on Graham's head a bump which we learned is Hematoma. It is basically a big bruise that is filled with blood on his head. Its from being posterior and all the pressure his head went through. Our pediatrician said it is very common and usually goes down in 2-3 months.
When we got ready to leave we dressed and changed Graham, which as you can tell he wasn't too thrilled about. This is the same outfit Bennett came home in.
We got him all loaded up the carseat and realized just how small he was.
It was so nice to come home, to be with Bennett and get back into "regular" life again...with our now busy family of 4.

          A Whirlwind of an Update: October      Cache   Translate Page      
To the 3 of you who actually read this blog I will share a quick update on baby #2 and then proceed with October's post.

*****This is old news (obviously) but I wrote it and intended to post this before the baby came...less than a week later,,, "I went into my 38 week appointment yesterday (what!?! I wasn't supposed to make it this long!). We unfortunately found out that in the past week the baby has flipped and is now breech! What a naughty boy! The doctor scheduled me an ultrasound for Tuesday to check on the baby to make sure all is ok and that the cord isn't around or near his neck (I'm in tears by this point). He then said unless I go into labor naturally, we will talk at my 39 week appointment and possibly schedule a c-section. That had never crossed my mind and I am beside myself. I just want the baby here healthy and soon and so I'll ask anyone reading this to keep us in your prayers. I would love nothing more for the baby to flip back into position and to go into labor naturally but whatever we need to do to get him here safely, we will do. Thanks everyone." 11/15/14

On to an October update:
October consisted of more hanging with Hudson, playing with toys, reading books and attending Toddler Time at the library.
As I mentioned before, Bennett has had a lot of accidents as of late. This time we were at the duck pond at BYU. Bennett slipped and hit his head into the wooden beams, making his mouth bleed quite a bit. Another fat lip for Bennett and worries for mom.
We attended Aaron's mission reunion in Salt Lake with President Smith and his wife. It was fun for Aaron to see some old mission buddies, even though he has been home for 4 years! Crazy! Bennett loved it because there was Root Beer, pizza, donuts and cookies...
That was Conference weekend and Ethan, who just turned 16, got to come up to Utah to hang with us for a couple of days. We all stayed in Bountiful at Gma Wrays house and listened to conference. Carlie, Ethan and I were lucky to attend the Saturday afternoon session of Conference together. We then met up with the boys for a quick bite to eat and then Ethan, Aaron and Aaron all attended the Priesthood session. 
We all hung out that night and next day eating food and chatting. We attended the afternoon session at the Storys home and had a delicious dinner with them. Ethan stayed at our house that night and we played Pay Day. The next morning Ethan helped me with Hudson and Bennett and we went on a walk around campus and then I took him to the airport. It was fun having all of us siblings together.
Cousins that hold hands in the car together, stay together.
Bennett always comes in while I am going to the bathroom. I always ask him to shut the door and he does...but shuts himself in or he will look away and still talk to me until I am done. Haha.
The second week of October we got to head down to AZ to participate in Ethan's Eagle Court of Honor and being ordained to a Priest. We were excited to be with family and in warm weather.
Bennett somehow got his own seat on the flight which we were stoked about! We brought his carseat on the plane and strapped him in between us and he did fantastic!
And...he fell asleep right as the plane landed, of course!
From the airport we headed to Gpa and Gma Butler's house where Bennett loved playing with the toys and on the swing set.
But he was tired from missing his nap and it being late and so he plopped down on the rug in the kitchen and relaxed until we were ready to go home.
That next day we hung out at my house, the boys went shooting and us girls shopped for groceries, set up Halloween and talked. That night we had a spooky halloween dinner. Where we all wore crazy hats and ate delicious food.
The next day we had an "un-birthday" party for all of the birthdays in our family in October and September. We had a delicious breakfast and people opened up gifts. 
Bennett's favorite part of the trip was our dog Toby. He loved chasing him and we would find him hanging with him in his bed.
What a good Uncle Ethan is.
Here we are at Ethan's Eagle Court of Honor that night. He did so well and it was neat to be able to celebrate this big accomplishment with him!
We headed back to Utah early Monday morning. Aaron, Aaron and Carlie quickly headed to school and I took Hudson and Bennett home with me for the day. We don't have a double stroller so I just let Bennett walk and lead the way as Hudson and I followed.
The Provo Early Intervention program that Bennett is apart of had a Halloween Party in the park. I really wanted to take Bennett but had Hudson that day so I decided to be brave and take my 7 month pregnant self, a 5 month old and an 21 month old and brave it at the party.
Bennett didn't have much interest in the party but loved the park and running around with the other kids there.
Bennett loves swinging and so I was able to get Hudson to sleep in the stroller and then parked him while I pushed Bennett for a long time.
And then I would push Bennett, run back to feed Hudson and then run back to push Bennett. It was definitely a juggling act. 
Bennett came home with a pumpkin from the party and he was thrilled.
Modeling the shades...
I accidentally left the house to get in the car and locked the keys in the trunk of the car with the house key on it. We had a spare to get into the car but our trunk is broken and can only open with the button on the electric remote thing (I'm so technical and great at explaining things). Bennett and I luckily had the stroller and so we walked to meet Aaron at BYU (because he had the spare key and I couldn't get in the house). We then attempted to get the key out of the trunk for a while and then we found a way to "break" into our house through the front window. Once inside we got the other electric remote key and got our house key...not sure if that makes sense but I'm too tired to reread and fix it.
Bennett loved having the window open and screen gone. 
Mom and Dad Butler came into town and attended Homecoming Spectacular. We had tickets as well and it's crazy, out of the whole Marriott Center, our seats ended up being right behind each other. Afterwards we went to the creamery. The line was long and so we ended up just buying a carton, some spoons and bowls and sat down in booth and ate it that way. It was good to be with them and catch up. The next day we met them at Brick Oven for dinner and Bennett was not sad about that because it meant ROOT BEER which Bennett loves and could drink a whole lot of...Dad Butler even tried ordering Bennett his own refillable drink. After that we walked around BYU and saw where Aaron worked and hung out in the Wilk. We then came back to our apartment, talked and Dad Butler gave Aaron a nice blessing. 
The next day was the BYU homecoming parade. Aaron was participating in it with the BYU Alumni so Bennett and I decided to join too. We hung out at the Bush's apartment until we saw Aaron's float and then we jumped in with the Student Alumni, wearing our matching shirts, and helped to throw out candy and wave at people. It was so much fun!
Not sure what Bennett ate but it sure left a great mustache!
Carlie had a couple days of Fall Break and so we got together one day and went to Target with our boys. It was so much fun and trips are even better when you get a Slurpee.
We tried on hats. costumes and clothes as we browsed each isle.
We also went together to the Springville Pumpkin Patch with our boys. Bennett loved the animals, the corn kernel pit and just running around. Bennett enjoyed it so much that I took him back the next week to play some more. 
"I'm so glad when daddy comes home"...but seriously. With Aaron working on campus (his internship), being on the Student Alumni Board and taking a full load of classes, we rarely see him and so when he is home we both are very grateful.
Aaron went out of town for the weekend to participate in a triathlon (see below) and so Bennett and I tried some new trying to go see a move at the Dollar Theater. We lasted about 20 minutes. Thankfully it was a dollar. We than ran a bunch of errands to get our Halloween costumes ready to go. I can't sleep while Aaron is gone and so  I decided to stay up and make our Halloween costumes. Cheap shirts and duck tape and there you have it, our Halloween costumes for 2014. 
Aaron signed up to do a relay triathlon with  Aaron doing the swimming portion, my Uncle Jer doing the running portion and my dad doing the biking portion. With a busy semester Aaron didn't have much time to train but he got a fancy swimming wet suit and headed down to Nevada to participate. Here it how it went in his words:
"Five months ago, I signed up to swim a mile in a lake. Now, I’m aware that some of you may do that sort of thing in your sleep, but for others of us, signing up for a one-mile  swim is about the same as signing up for a hundred-mile swim—both are like unfathomable distances.  Up to that point, the longest swim I’d performed was whatever’s required for the swimming merit badge—three laps in  the pool. And I thought that was pretty far!   Then I realized a one-mile swim is about seventeen and a half football fields. And there’s no bottom of the pool for my toes to touch. I trained for a couple months and realized just how much of a beginner I really was. I knew I wouldn’t win this race, but I promised myself one thing: No matter what, I’m finishing. Before I knew it, it was race day and I found myself standing on the shore of Lake Mead in Nevada at sunrise, in the cheapest wetsuit I could find on Amazon. I waded into the lake waste deep and got into what I imagined would be a good starting position. As the race official slowly raised the starting pistol towards the sky, I looked around at the hundreds of other swimmers with me in the lake and experienced that moment, like in the movies, where all I could hear was my own pounding heart. Then, the pistol fired. We leapt into the water and I started to wildly stroke through the water. Then a few things happened: First, I couldn’t see. I put my face into the water and realized all I could see was green murkiness. Gone was the clear water and the familiar black line of my training pool.  And when I looked up, all I could see was splashing arms and feet. Either way, couldn’t see. Second, I couldn’t breathe. I turned to take my first breath and realized how constricting my new wetsuit was. I couldn’t  breathe and I started gasping for air. So, I put my head down and held my breath as long as I could. And third, I couldn’t swim. Any good swim form I had developed was gone, like my training never even happened. Then,  after holding my breath and staring into the murkiness, I looked up to see that I had veered off course at least 40 degrees and the other simmers were way ahead of me—like I was swimming a different course. The race was quickly turning into a disaster. And I was starting to experience actual panic. I grabbed hold of the nearest safety boat to take a rest and to reevaluate what was going on.
Thinking I had already conquered a good chunk of the race, I looked back and realized that I had only just begun. In terms of those seventeen football fields, I was one the 20 yard line of the first field. Maybe. Another girl swam up alongside me, gasping just like me. And I watched her battle with herself for a moment, and then turn around, heading back to the nearby shore.  Knowing I still had some more “umph” in me, I detached from the boat and continued along the course. But only after a minute more, I turned to my back, floating in the water, limbs dangling, my chest rising and falling with  each heavy gasp. I stared up into the sky and realized that everything was quiet. Both the spectators and the other competitors were out of earshot. I had reached the conclusion that it was literally impossible for me to finish this race and I had no hope of keeping that 
promise to myself. Then I started my own personal battle. “But, Aaron,” I thought to myself, “You’ve gotta do this! You made a promise to finish this thing.” But no was going to think any less of me if I turned back to the shore—plenty of swimmers were doing it. And, besides, I  couldn’t really see finishing as an option.  So, there I floated, out in the middle of the lake, battling with myself, when up paddled another safety kayak. “Hey! You can do this,” she shouted. I couldn’t help but think how wrong she was.  But she persisted, “You just focus on getting to the next buoy. Don’t worry about the rest.” And she was right. I kept my eyes on the next buoy and then nothing else. Then the next and the next. And 51 minutes later I was heading for finish line, the last person in the lake, with a whole fleet of safety boats behind me cheering me on. Did I win the race? Not even close. Was it a little embarrassing? Yeah, a little.  Was in over my head? Way over my head. But did I do what I said I would do? Absolutely.
I talked to Aaron afterwards and he explained it was the hardest thing he had ever done but it was awesome to complete something so hard! I was so proud of him and grateful he didn't drowned ;)

Aaron's flight was delayed coming home and so Bennett and I went with the Bush's and went to the Riverwoods Halloween Party. Bennett loved trick-or-treating at the different shops.
When Aaron got home we made caramel apples that were delicious and a Fall tradition.
Bennett and Huds.
Who doesn't love a goof trip to Hobby Lobby?
Love this sweet boy of mine.
On the 29th we attended a BYU Halloween Party for kids of students and staff. We all dressed up and Bennett absolutely loved all of the games. He was actually quite good at them and won lots of prizes and treats. 
In this particular game it was "mini golf" where you roll a ball down a hill, through a hole where there is a moving windmill and then it goes down a chute where you try to make it in the hole. Bennett randomly pushed it down, on his first try, got it past the windmill and made a whole in one! Boom baby!
Cosmo was there but Bennett wasn't too sure about him and kind of gave him a high five.
We had to keep returning to this game since Bennett loved it and did so well.

          OPINION: Misplaced Priorities      Cache   Translate Page      
Mayor Levar Stoney’s new tax increase isn’t about fixing schools and roads, it’s about soundbites for the next election.

When it comes to their tax dollars, Richmonders are used to paying more for less.

With his new budget, Mayor Levar Stoney is asking Richmonders to pay even more through a 9-cent property tax rate increase, a utility rate increase averaging $5.82 a month per household and a 50-cent-per-pack cigarette tax. This comes after an effective tax increase at the beginning of 2019 when city property assessments rose 8.3 percent on average. These three new tax increases would put him at a total of six in just three years in office [when you include utility fee increase for bulk trash pick up, meals tax increase and tax assessment increase without adjusting the rate down to make it revenue neutral].

He says he has found all the possible efficiencies and savings possible in City Hall, and if we want better schools and roads then this is the only option. What he doesn’t mention is that he isn’t simply handing over this new tax revenue to the Richmond Public Schools and Public Works to do their thing. He instead gives only $6 million to schools and $2 million to Public Works. The rest is spread out among almost every city department except for an unlucky few like Minority Business Development, Economic Development and Housing and Community Development.

And the largest portion is assigned to the item called general fund transfer to debt service. That money would be used as leverage to take out a $48 million loan. This proposed loan wouldn’t even be used to get an even larger sum for schools and roads, but again would be spread across various projects to give everyone a little something.

This tax increase is not about schools and roads. If it were, then every available dollar would be funneled directly into those priorities.

Instead this budget tries to be everything to everyone all at once. It is a deliberate action to avoid having to make difficult decisions or do the hard work of fixing City Hall. Why roll up your sleeves when you can just raise taxes and do a bunch of different projects that can be used as sound bites in the 2020 election or the 2021 election for governor?

This municipal attention deficit disorder is par for the course in Richmond, but Stoney is taking it to new heights. This tax-increase proposal comes at the same time he is seeking to divert tax revenue to fund a billion dollar coliseum development. Coincidentally, the $21.1 million his property tax increase will generate matches the $21.1 million average annual bond payment required to make the new Coliseum a reality.

It is common knowledge in Richmond, to everyone except the mayor apparently, that City Hall lacks focus and competency. In just the last few months there have been news stories of the city’s having to pay twice to make road repairs because they weren’t done properly the first time, of an accounting error costing the city $3 million and of one employee racking up 1,900 hours of overtime. In 2017, Richmond spent $92 million on general government administration, which is more than double the per capita average for cities in Virginia. Norfolk, which has almost the same exact number of people as Richmond, spent $63 million less. Virginia Beach, with 200,000 more people than Richmond, spent $25 million less than Richmond. Basically, name a locality other than Fairfax County and Richmond spent more.

In this budget there would be $46 million in new revenue: $21.8 million in new property tax revenue from assessment value increases, $21.1 million from the property tax rate increase, and $3 million from the cigarette tax increase. Taking into account a decrease of $8 million from various sources such as the admissions tax, which is less because the mayor already has unilaterally shut down the Coliseum, there would be a total of $38 million more than last year’s budget to spend. All Stoney would have to do is take that $38 million and find $2 million in cuts and he would have the $40 million he wants to give to schools and roads in this budget without a single dime of debt.

If he managed to cut general government administration spending to the level of Virginia Beach and combine it with just the revenue from the assessment increases, we would have $46.8 million without raising taxes by 1 cent.

Instead the mayor apparently went to the Richmond city government school of financial management, where you max out the credit cards locking up all future revenue in interest payments without actually solving the most pressing issues. The mayor’s proposed path will continue the patented Richmond pattern of subpar services for our residents, while the politicians throw up their hands and complain about lack of revenue.

Stoney either doesn’t have the understanding or desire to solve the tough problems. His lack of interest is obvious from his constant trips out of town to set up his future political career and by how we have gone more than a year without seeing the details of his billion dollar coliseum idea. It is time for Richmond to stop being the capital of misplaced priorities. If Stoney thinks he has done all he can do with what we have given him, then maybe it is time we start taking applications for someone new.

A conflict over two of the city’s historic African-American cemeteries threatens to undermine restoration efforts.

For Veronica Davis, the nonprofit acquisition of two historic African-American cemeteries was the realization of a dream she'd nurtured for 20 years.

Davis, a Hampton resident, is a historian who first came to Evergreen Cemetery in Richmond's East End in 1999, when she was president of the Maggie Walker Foundation. Shocked by signs of neglect and dense overgrowth at the burial site of the banking and civic leader, Davis began clearing brush, leading cemetery tours and seeking allies to help restore historic African-American cemeteries across the state. Her hope all along has been to see the sites take on a national role similar to that of Arlington National Cemetery, becoming destinations for visitors and a place of comfort to descendants of the thousands buried there.

Davis says the Enrichmond Foundation, the nonprofit that bought Evergreen from Isaiah Entzminger in 2017 and is set to acquire the adjacent East End Cemetery, is the right steward for this sacred land. Although personal problems and health issues sidelined Davis from active work several years ago, she says Enrichmond reached out to her early in the process, even sending someone down to visit her in Hampton. When she finally met John Sydnor, the executive director of Enrichmond, after weeks talking over the phone, she says, "I gave him a hug, and I have to be honest with you, in that moment I started crying, because here is a dream that is being realized."

Although Davis and others welcome the acquisition, it hasn't been without controversy.

These segregated cemeteries are the final resting places of such prominent Richmonders as Walker, journalist John Mitchell Jr., the Rev. John Andrew Bowler and tens of thousands of everyday people. Under Jim Crow and the disenfranchisement of African-Americans following Reconstruction, [many of African-American cemeteries] were defunded and abandoned while tax dollars flowed into Confederate memorials and burial grounds like Hollywood Cemetery, segregated in Richmond until 1970.

Over the decades, regular maintenance fell to family members and volunteer groups. The history behind these restoration efforts is as twisted and gnarled as the tree roots snaking between graves. That twisted history may help explain some of the controversy that's arisen.

From the perspective of Brian Palmer, a journalist who moved to Richmond while working on a documentary about his own hidden family roots, the acquisition was a behind-closed-doors deal between the Commonwealth of Virginia and a private entity, and he worries that it's a repeat of the institutional failures that first left these sites in disarray.

"We have the actual giving away of a historic and sacred black site," Palmer says, asking how Enrichmond can guarantee that it will maintain the site in perpetuity. He describes a recent grant of $400,000 through the Virginia Outdoors Foundation as a cash transfer to a nonprofit he thinks is too small and too inexperienced to handle the work.

"Couldn't the state have done something different in the 21st century?" he asks.

Although he says the funding is a smaller issue, Palmer is concerned that the sites are being "treated as commodities, not community assets."

Due to legislation passed in 2017, each cemetery receives state funding similar to the funding Confederate gravesites have long received. The bill provides $5 per grave of any African-American who lived between 1800 and 1900. As reported in the Richmond Free Press in February 2017, there are 6,975 such graves in East End and Evergreen, bringing the total annual funding to $34,875. According to a Freedom of Information Act request Palmer filed with the Department of Historic Resources, Enrichmond has already received $10,500 through this.

Palmer's a newer arrival to Richmond, but he has deep ties to the cemetery and the region. While researching his family, he discovered they'd lived in Magruder, a historic African-American community that was displaced by the U.S. Army. That led him to the grave of his great-grandfather, Matthew Palmer, who was buried in East End. With his wife, Erin Holloway Palmer, and volunteers of the Friends of East End group, he's cleared nearly half the 12 or 13 acres suitable for burial on the site. They've logged graves, documented headstones and connected descendants with their family, many for the first time in decades.

Even as he continues the hard work of restoration, Palmer has gone to court hearings with the Friends to ask for "a direct and substantive role in planning and decision-making" for the families of people buried in East End cemetery, which is considered abandoned and has no current owner. Those hearings ended with no rules imposed on Enrichmond, which is on the cusp of acquiring the site after it pays any outstanding back taxes and liens on the land.

Although the cemetery restoration is a volunteer effort, Palmer's professional work is focused to similar ends. He's been a journalist for some 30 years with long stints overseas. He worked in Beijing as the bureau chief of U.S. News & World Report and in Iraq for CNN, and later directed "Full Disclosure," his award-winning documentary about embedding with the Marine Corps in Iraq. After going freelance, though, Palmer shifted his focus to domestic conflicts, reporting on the legacy of the Confederacy and the people who still defend it. That effort has included a series for Colorlines, titled "Race Trips," and a more recent piece, "The Costs of the Confederacy," the subject of a talk he gave at Chop Suey Books recently.

Published in Smithsonian magazine, the piece is the end result of a year spent visiting Confederate sites across the South. Palmer and his co-author, Seth Freed Wessler, write that at these sites, what's known as the Lost Cause narrative — which minimizes the evils of slavery and distorts the Civil War — is being funded by public money to the tune of $40 million over the last decade alone. This is just part of a long history of public money being used to uphold the Confederacy, says Palmer, who worries that we're repeating the mistakes of the past by letting historic African-American cemeteries go into private ownership.

While Sydnor praises Palmer's work and intentions, he disputes both his description of Enrichmond and his interpretation of the grant. He stresses that Enrichmond is a 28-year-old organization originally founded by the city to support public spaces, such as Belle Isle, which was in danger of private acquisition before Enrichmond bought it and established a permanent easement.

In terms of size and experience, he says the organization has grown to eight permanent employees, including Ted Maris-Wolf, a historian and specialist in African-American genealogy, employed as the caretaker of Evergreen Cemetery. It also took in $900,025 with expenses more than $1 million according to a 2017 tax filing, all prior to receiving any funds from the Virginia Outdoors Foundation.

"We purchased Evergreen with our own money," Sydnor adds, describing years of negotiations with the owners, in accordance with a plan the previous director of Enrichmond drafted eight years ago. Those long negotiations to buy Evergreen from Entzminger began in 2012. "I had to earn their trust and we knew that," Sydnor says. "I was meeting with them, having breakfast with Mr. Entzminger, working burials with them."

He says it was important to learn what was needed to maintain the cemetery, and as the only employee of Enrichmond at the time, he started volunteering and helping Entzminger, who was struggling to keep up with the work despite age and illness. When the purchase went through, it cost $140,000, mostly to pay back federal and state taxes the property had accrued.

Sydnor's supporters say they're encouraged by what they've seen since Enrichmond purchased Evergreen: The nonprofit will bring in AmeriCorps volunteers, has expanded the genealogy work on the site, hired a full-time caretaker, and has made important site improvements at Evergreen, such as opening road access and adding interpretation and maps.

Palmer questions the legality or at least the ethics of the process that began before Enrichmond purchased the land. He asks if grass-roots groups couldn't have been considered as the preservation partner, noting that if money is what was needed, the current volunteers, family members and other community stakeholders would have been able to use the grant that went to Enrichmond. For an alternative model, he points to the Preservers of the Daughters of Zion Cemetery group, which worked with Preservation Virginia to protect a smaller African-American cemetery in Charlottesville.

Brett Glymph, executive director of the Virginia Outdoors Foundation, echoes Sydnor in her praise for Palmer and the Friends, but firmly denies any illegal or unethical behavior. Although Palmer says he was blindsided by the money flowing to Enrichmond, Glymph says it was always the plan, and she says she doesn't know why there is any confusion.

"Our statutes control that. In order to give the grant, we have to receive a real estate interest, which can only be conveyed by the owner. That's not some contrivance, that's the way a real estate foundation works," she says. Because Enrichmond was already planning to buy the land, it was the obvious partner, she says.

As to the fitness of Enrichmond, Glymph says a thorough vetting process that included checking with the City of Richmond and reviewing the group's long-standing easement on Belle Isle convinced her it was the right partner.

"[The city said] they created this foundation to do these sorts of things," Glymph says. "They get an ongoing appropriation from the city, so they're city supported, with a 28-year track record."

Ryan Smith, a history professor at Virginia Commonwealth University who researches the cemeteries and coordinates the Richmond Cemeteries project, disagrees that the process was thorough.

"They reached the most expedient solution but not the best one," he says, noting that a single partner was proposed and accepted, without considering other nonprofits or groups. He thinks the process wasn't fair to the Friends, who, he says, "have the best interest of that site in mind and the proof is in their actions. They've cleared two-thirds of the site on their own."

Both Glymph and Sydnor praised the restoration work done so far, and despite the breach, say they'd like to work with the Friends going forward.

"It's unfortunate that things have soured," Glymph says.

She hopes that Palmer will come back to the partnership and even join the expert advisory committee established to provide oversight. The committee, which includes former state legislator and Richmond City Councilor Viola Baskerville and John Mitchell, a descendant and namesake of the famous newspaper editor, holds regular public meetings and is working with Enrichmond and others to draft long-term plans for the sites.

Palmer says he won't join unless the expert committee can be an equal partner with binding authority, pointing to language in the charter that allows for the dissolution of the board under Enrichmond.

Sydnor acknowledges that language, but denies any underhanded motives. "That's legalese," he says. "Contracts are written by lawyers to deal with worst-case scenarios."

At the end of the day, he says Enrichmond is liable for anything that happens on its property, and by law, can't give volunteer groups the level of control that Palmer is asking for. He notes that John Shuck, the volunteer coordinator for the Friends, is a member of the expert board, and reiterated that Palmer would be a welcome addition.

He says he's sympathetic to concerns around access, but he hopes the 28-year history Enrichmond has with other volunteer groups could provide some reassurance.

"We're new to their sacred space, where they've given a lot of time and effort," he says, describing discussions he's had with members of the Friends. "I think they're worried that we're going to block access, and what we've tried to convey is that Enrichmond, for 28 years, has achieved success through supporting volunteer efforts. Why would we take away a dedicated group of people who are reclaiming graves in a historic African-American grave site?"

In addition to their reputation, Sydnor says they face legal oversight, such as the regulations mandated by the state Department of Historic Resources, and have worked with groups such as the Elegba Folklore Society, the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society of Richmond and the Black History Museum of Richmond, all of which support the acquisition. He hopes that volunteers remain committed, and says Enrichmond just wants to provide protection for the land on which their work happens.

Baskerville, who helped negotiate the deal as a member of the Virginia Outdoors Foundation and has ancestors in both sites, says she too hopes that all the volunteers will remain involved. "They're the heartbeat," she says. "This project is at this stage because the volunteers always kept the faith."

She suggests that the conflict comes from confusion around what ownership means, pointing to the permanent easement over the land as its legal protection.

"Enrichmond is not trying to control us," she says. "If you take the 60,000-foot view of this project, it is the people that are in control of what this project looks like, what the space will look like. It is the people that hold this sacred memory and the vision for the future. Enrichmond is just the legal owner and the steward of the property. I think if people can separate those two, that will help defuse a lot of this tension."

Palmer says he can't separate the issues, especially after a process that he characterizes as misleading and manipulative. Glymph says that wasn't her intention, but she regrets that there were misunderstandings or miscommunications.

"This is the first time we've done something like this," though, she says. While it didn't go perfectly, she thinks it went as well as it could have, but she's worried now that the conflict will overshadow the work.

"We have this one group that is critical, but I don't think that should detract from all the support, good will, and good work that has been done to date," she says. "Those roads into Evergreen, which have been opened for the first time in many, many years, have allowed so many families to come in and find their family plots, or at least give them the confidence that they can be found."

"If I could go back and do it again, I would," she says about the grant, even despite the risk and the misunderstandings. In the maps and aerial views, she says, "You could visibly see Jim Crow. It was a moral imperative that something be done, and we did it, and I'm hoping it will set an example for people to do something across the whole Commonwealth."

Descendant John Mitchell says that while everybody may not agree on how to do things, he believes they agree on the overall goal.

"I don't see anything wrong with dissension. I think even though we disagree, we can get things done," says Mitchell. "Everybody agrees we need to clear it, and that's what we're doing. And I'm glad to see it's a very multicultural thing. … it's a beautiful opportunity. Twenty years from now, I want them to see that the citizens did this."

Asked about next steps in their fight against the acquisition, Palmer says the group operates democratically, and any decision will come out of a consensus established during its weekly phone call.

He's certain about one thing, though: "We're going to keep doing what we do. We're going to show up every Saturday and continue the work of restoring this sacred site, just as we've done since the middle of June 2013."

Clarification from the author: Due to legislation passed in 2017, the owner of each cemetery can receive state funding similar to the funding Confederate gravesites have long received, though it is just starting. Also, a sentence has been changed to reflect that, while the two Richmond cemeteries were not "defunded" during Jim Crow, many similar cemeteries of the period were. Style regrets any error or confusion.

          Competition Is Bad for Education: Admission Bribery Scandal Edition      Cache   Translate Page      

It is hard to know where to begin with the big story of cheating and bribery in order to gain admission to elite universities.

There are the rubbernecking aspects, actresses and business leaders ensnared by the indictment, including Lori Loughlin who with her designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to gain admission for their daughter to the University of Southern California, a daughter who was less than indifferent about the educational aspects of college to begin with.  

There are the stories of parents faking learning disabilities for their children to gain access to accommodations that would allow for the cheating to happen. The saddest story may be the parents who went to great lengths to hide the fact of the cheating from their own child, arranging for him to take a fake test.

Or another one, about non-athlete children having their faces photoshopped onto the bodies of actual athletes as proof they belonged in a pool of applicants deserving special consideration. 

We could talk about the greed, venality, corruption, and cluelessness that abounds in the details shared in the charging document. The bribes were even couched as charitable donations which allowed the parents to deduct them on their taxes. It’s simply gross. 

My jaw dropped a little deeper with each page, but it is important to distinguish between shock and surprise. I was shocked that we are finding out about these schemes, while being entirely unsurprised that something like this was going on. 

This is merely the illegal version of the rather common practices wealthy, almost universally white parents use to stack the elite admissions deck for their offspring. William Singer, the chief perpetrator of the fraud pitched the scheme as a “side door” to admission, an alternative to the “back door” of institutional advancement (meaning above board donations) that can’t offer a “guarantee” and are usually more costly.[1]

SAT tutors, admissions consultants, private schooling from the cradle, legacy admissions, crew, field hockey, grandpa’s name on a building. This is how the so-called meritocracy is supposed to perpetuate itself, not bribery and side doors.

U.S. attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Andrew Lelling, said, “The real victims in this case are the hardworking students,” who were presumably denied admission to these elite universities because of the fraud.

True enough, but not the whole truth. The full list of victims would include the following: Everybody.

As is my tendency, I immediately try to see these things through a systemic lens. Yes, the perpetrators are wrong and gross. Yes, they deserve whatever punishments are coming their way, but to truly understand the roots of this harm and fully appreciate the scope of those who are harmed, we have to go deeper.

Competition is bad for education, bad for learning, bad for students, bad, ultimately, for educational institutions as well. 

Competition is wasteful and inefficient, and leads institutions to engage in deliberately obstructive practices to hide the trust cost of attendance to students

Competition has squeezed poorer students not just out of admission at elite private universities, but public flagships as well, as demonstrated by a report from New America Education. 

Students competing for scarce slots in magnet schools or college feeders experience increased stress and anxiety. Even the “winners” are losing

I’m thinking about an even larger class of those who are harmed. How about black and brown children who are subjected to emotionally abusive practices at so-called “no excuses” charter schools so they may fare better in an admissions competition that will always be stacked against them?

Recall the story of T.M. Landry College Prep of Louisiana, which was faking transcripts in order to get their minority students into elite schools. This is a consequence of the same dysfunctional system that begat Aunt Becky bribing a dude to get her YouTube star daughter into USC. The difference is that those minority students were subjected to “a culture of fear with physical and emotional abuse, students and teachers saidStudents were forced to kneel on rice, rocks and hot pavement, and were choked, yelled at and berated,” while the daughter of the star of Garage Sale Mysteries had to experience the challenge of working around not being able to remove any of the standard issue USC dorm furniture, while still creating an Instagramable space.[2]

How about the harm done to public institutions which are required to compete for prestige in order to be deemed worthy of support, all while doing more with less, year after year.

I am grateful for the news of this scandal because it is a window into how messed up the system truly is, but it would be a shame if we fail to use this to look at these problems at a systemic level. 

Some initial thoughts on the implications of this news:[3]

1. Let’s just end using the SAT and ACT as admissions criteria. They’re biased, students who can afford coaching get an unfair advantage, they have little correlation to college success, and now they’ve proved central to a fraud. How much more do we need to act?

2. All schools should immediately cease to cooperate with the U.S. News & World Report rankings. Coincidentally, this year’s data was released the same day as the scandal broke. Everyone in education knows the data is largely meaningless as a reflection of the on-the-ground quality of education, so let’s just stop with the nonsense. Sure, this is more symptom than disease, but every little bit helps.

3. Let’s have a good, hard talk about whether or not public money in any form should be going to these elite private institutions. As of 2015, Stanford, whose sailing coach was implicated in the indictment, receives a taxpayer subsidy equivalent to $63,000 per student. Compare this to UC-Berkeley, which receives only $10,500 of taxpayer subsidy per student.

These subsidies are often hidden in tax breaks and other schemes.

4. Let’s invest in public education.[4]I will use a specific example that applies more broadly. You can get a great education at College of Charleston, my most recent employer. It is a fine school with great students and wonderful faculty. It is not without faults – no place is – but it is an example of a public institution trying its best to provide educational opportunities to their students.

The amount of money spent on the admissions cheating and bribery scheme ($25 million) is 50% more than the annual contribution of the state of South Carolina to CofC’s bottom line. 

Seventy-five percent of applicants to CofC are admitted. The opportunity is not particularly scarce, but the resources to support the students in our non-elite public institutions sure are.

There are thousands of institutions like this across the country, including our community colleges which are providing educational access for many students who are the least resourced. We should be working to make the path much smoother for those folks, and if it means taking elite privates down a peg or two in the process, consider it past due payment for services already rendered. 

They’ve been sponging off the rest of us for long enough.


[1]Page 78 of the indictment. If you haven’t read it, you really should see it for yourself. I cannot do it justice.

[2]Solution: “I covered a lot of stuff with blankets, like my chair. I used the marble tapestry to cover the large bulletin board on my wall that we were not allowed to remove.”

[3]If people have other things we should be considering, please add them in the comments.

[4]And tax the rich to do it, rather than having billionaires like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg who claim to care about education launder their money through quasi-philanthropic giving.

          Why is building a culture of failure a good thing?      Cache   Translate Page      

Success is fun. Success is what we celebrate from the classroom to the athletic fields, and during concerts and performances. But if we cultivate success, then how do we as a culture treat failure?

In my professional life, and I suspect in most professional careers, not everything always goes as planned. If you are like me, you have an entire set of skills from these experiences that have helped to shape your ethos at work. While some may perceive these as negative, I prefer to think that they have driven me to improve and learn from them in the future.

One of my jobs as the leader of University Communications at St. Lawrence University is to build a culture where my team has the space to try new ideas and test different concepts. The capacity for us to learn how to fail, build resilience, and eventually produce a better result is critical. Knowledge is compounding interest and when we as a team learn from things that have not worked, it propels a set of new ideas that may indeed work in the future. We work in an industry that is not static and is continually changing. We compete in a complex and noisy marketplace and need to create the opportunity to put bold ideas to the test. It is crucial to building teams that have the tools and skills that enable us to persevere when things get tough or don’t work out.

There are three core traits to look for when hiring individuals and building teams around this concept. I have found that these traits help your team to be ready to embrace a culture that celebrates failure.

1) Self-awareness or emotional intelligence

One of the top things that I look for when I hire any individual is their ability to understand and manage emotions, which significantly increases their chances of success. That ability also leads to a better understanding of their strengths and weaknesses. That understanding is at the core of how an individual builds resilience. Building a team that is aware of themselves and their environments will increase their likelihood of learning from mistakes and failure and eventually being able to harness those lessons into success.

2) Confidence

To succeed in a culture that encourages taking risks your teammates need to have an underlying sense of confidence. They don’t need to be overconfident, but they need to know that they are good at their job, their ideas are valued, and there is no penalty for trying a new approach that might not work. What makes a difference is having the trust to fail and the understanding that within failure are lessons that help you succeed. Teammates who exhibit that type of confidence are the ones that you want when a project takes a wrong turn.

3) Curiosity

Asking better questions almost always yields better results, and I like to look for teammates who have a willingness to learn and ask questions. Natural curiosity is an excellent complement to a team that is testing a new digital design or a fresh approach to talking about an academic program. That inquisitive nature will help your group find ideas that work as often as you find ideas that don’t.

Concluding Thoughts

Self-awareness, confidence, and curiosity are three traits that are important when you build a team that makes room for failure. Looking for these traits in the people that you hire and work with will increase your chances of building a team that will be resilient and ready to tackle any number of challenges that they will face together.

Three traits to look for when building a team that succeeds through failure.

          Asking the Right Questions      Cache   Translate Page      

A thought experiment:

One full-time professor teaches five sections of twenty-five students each.

Two adjunct professors teach one class each, also with twenty-five students per section.

In this scenario, the “student:faculty ratio” is 175/3, or about 58 to 1. But the average class size is 25. If you try to infer average class size from the student/faculty ratio, you will get it wildly wrong.

I bring up the thought experiment because it helps explain what makes me uneasy about the numbers in the new American Academy of Arts and Sciences survey of humanities instruction in community colleges. A line like “Philosophy appeared to have the highest student-faculty ratio among the humanities disciplines examined here, with approximately 50 students for each faculty member…” could mean many different things, or nearly nothing.  What it almost certainly does _not_ mean is that the average size of a philosophy class is 50. But of course, the first two comments on the IHE story about the survey immediately leaped to the conclusion that the faculty/student ratio is the same as the average class size.

The report doesn’t appear to make an argument; it seems intended to create a baseline against which future surveys can draw longitudinal data. That’s valuable in itself, and you have to start somewhere. But false precision is a real danger.

The adjunct/full time divide is an obvious place to start. Just defining the terms can be a challenge. If a full-timer teaches a section as overload, does that count as full-time (because taught by a full-timer) or adjunct (because taught outside of load)?  If a dean teaches a class, is that full-time (because she’s full-time) or adjunct (because it’s outside of her regular job)? In places where full-time faculty and staff do significant overload teaching, the way you answer those questions makes a material difference in the numbers you reach.  In a national survey, you’re probably getting numbers counted differently in different places. That’s a lot of statistical noise for a seemingly straightforward question.

Before making any inferences about the strength of the humanities at community colleges, it’s also helpful to distinguish gen ed requirements from electives. English composition, for instance, falls under “humanities,” and it’s required in nearly every degree program at the college. But inferring high intrinsic student interest from high enrollments -- when those enrollments are required for every major from Auto Tech to Women’s Studies -- risks a basic category error.  Some students are happy to take it, and many more develop an appreciation for it once they’re there, but a non-trivial number take it because it’s required.

I saw the difference when I moved from Massachusetts, where the state doesn’t require a speech course as part of general education, to New Jersey, where it does.  Requirements drive enrollments. If you don’t believe me, sit in sometime on a faculty discussion of a proposal to change gen ed requirements. Faculty in affected departments see the connection immediately.

If it were somehow possible to isolate distribution requirements from electives, we’d get a truer picture.

That said, it’s also true that the humanities are much stronger at many community colleges than the popular discussion acknowledges. To listen to politicians and commentators, you’d think that we do nothing but STEM and workforce preparation. But that’s simply not true.  We have students who come here to be artists, or who discover a love for art once they get here. We prepare students for transfer, which means giving them a broad base of courses at the start.  And we have faculty in the humanities doing innovative work within the admittedly significant confines of heavy teaching loads. This is college, after all.

So, kudos to the AAAS for starting to establish a baseline, and for calling attention to a much-neglected, but crucial, part of what we do. I’d just advise being careful about which questions to ask, so we don’t inadvertently play into negative and false stereotypes.

          Ελπίδες για να επιστρέψει με την Λαμία ο Μουνάφο      Cache   Translate Page      

Αντίστροφα φαίνεται πως μετράει ο χρόνος για την επιστροφή του Χουάν Μουνάφο καθώς είναι πιθανόν αυτό να γίνει στον Σαββατιάτικο (16/3, 17:15) αγώνα με την Λαμία στο γήπεδο "Θεόδωρος Κολοκοτρώνης" για την 25η αγωνιστική του πρωταθλήματος της Super League.

Αργεντινός χαφ του Αστέρα Τρίπολης που υπέστη θλάση πριν από περίπου ένα μήνα στη Ριζούπολη και το παιχνίδι με τον Απόλλωνα Σμύρνης ανεβάζει συνεχώς ρυθμούς και ενδεχομένως να συμπεριληφθεί στην αποστολή ενόψει Λαμίας.

          Χρήστος Λαμπρόπουλος: Με συναινέσεις και χωρίς εκβιασμούς θα λυθούν τα προβλήματα της Περιφέρειας Πελοποννήσου       Cache   Translate Page      

«Εμείς στοχεύουμε και θα κερδίσουμε τις εκλογές. Την επόμενη μέρα θα απευθυνθούμε σε όλους, προκειμένου να αντιμετωπίσουμε τα προβλήματα.»

Για τον πολιτικό σχεδιασμό της παράταξης  «Πρωτοβουλία για την Πελοπόννησο» του Παναγιώτη Νίκα,  αλλά και για τις προσωπικές του στοχεύσεις μίλησε ο υποψήφιος περιφερειακός σύμβουλος Αρκαδίας και πολιτικός μηχανικός, Χρήστος Λαμπρόπουλος, σε συνέντευξη που παραχώρησε στο

O κ. Λαμπρόπουλος άνοιξε τα χαρτιά του και μίλησε για την επομένη μέρα μετά τις εκλογές, για τις συνεργασίες που θα υπάρξουν στο περιφερειακό συμβούλιο, αλλά ιεράρχησε και τα έργα που είναι πρωτίστης σημασίας για την Αρκαδία.

Με βάση την πείρα σας ως αντιδήμαρχος Τρίπολης, ποια είναι τα πρωταρχικής σημασίας ζητήματα της ελληνικής περιφέρειας και ειδικότερα του τόπου μας στα οποία θα επιχειρήσετε να απαντήσετε εφόσον η παράταξή σας επικρατήσει στις εκλογές του Μαΐου;

Η άποψή μου είναι ότι η Πελοπόννησος και η Αρκαδία ειδικότερα,  έχουν μείνει πολύ πίσω σε σχέση με την υπόλοιπη χώρα και την Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση. Στόχος μας είναι η επανένταξη της Πελοποννήσου στον χάρτη της παραγωγικότητας και της ανάπτυξης και σίγουρα η διατήρηση του πληθυσμού της, ο οποίος διαρρέει και αυτό φαίνεται από τις τελευταίες απογραφές. Είναι σαφές ότι ο νομός παρουσιάζει μείωση πολύ μεγαλύτερη σε σχέση με τις άλλες περιφερειακές ενότητες της Πελοποννήσου.

Η ανεργία είναι πολύ μεγάλη γιατί δεν υπάρχουν τα κίνητρα για να ενεργοποιηθεί η παραγωγή και να εκμεταλλευτούμε όλα εκείνα τα ξεχωριστά προϊόντα που μπορούν να λάβουν ονομασία προέλευσης, έχουμε τους Δρόμους του Κρασιού και ως εκεί.

Κυρίαρχα ζητήματα είναι να μπορέσουμε με δράσεις να ενισχύσουμε τον τουρισμό, μιας και η Αρκαδία μας έχει πλεονεκτήματα και ως προς τον θρησκευτικό τουρισμού αναδεικνύοντας τα πολλά μοναστήρια της, αλλά ανάδειξη του αθλητικού τουρισμού, ο οποίος  εκλείπει.

Οφείλουμε να βελτιώσουμε το κομμάτι του τουρισμού και να δώσουμε κίνητρα για να οργανωθεί καλύτερα η παραγωγή με αιχμή τα προϊόντα ονομασίας προελεύσεως, έτσι ώστε να κρατηθούν ο νέοι εδώ και η Αρκαδία να μπαίνει σε ρυθμό ανάπτυξης και αύξησης στης οικονομίας και της βελτίωσης του ακαθάριστου προϊόντος που είναι από τα χειρότερα στη χώρα.

Στον πρόγραμμα της παράταξη οι υποδομές θα παίξουν πρωταρχικό ρόλο, η Αρκαδία εδώ και δεκαετίες έχει ως ζητούμενο να μπορέσει η Γορτυνία να συνδεθεί με την Αρχαία Ολυμπία και με τους κεντρικούς οδικούς άξονες της Πελοποννήσου.

Πρέπει να βελτιωθεί η δομή των δρόμων από την Τρίπολη προς όλη της παραλιακή ζώνη της Κυνουρίας (κάτι το οποίο το ακούμε κατά καιρούς την προεκλογική περίοδο σε μια ξεχωριστή ζυγαριά, γιατί το τι εξαγγέλλεται δυο μήνες πριν τις εκλογές είναι ελεγχόμενη) να προγραμματιστούν άμεσα έτσι ώστε να μπορούμε να διεκδικήσουμε την εισροή τουριστών, Ελλήνων και ξένων προς τις περιοχές που είναι τα μοναστήρια μας. Οι παραγωγικές μονάδες, αλλά και οι παραλίες του νομού μας.

Πιστεύετε ότι πρέπει να υπάρχει αγαστή συνεργασία μεταξύ της περιφέρειας και των δήμων;

Είναι απαραίτητο να υπάρχει και τα τελευταία πολλά χρόνια δυστυχώς δεν γίνεται γιατί δεν υπάρχει  ένας στρατηγικός σχεδιασμός για το πώς χρησιμοποιηθούν τα διαθέσιμα κονδύλια.

Είναι πρωταρχικής σημασίας η συνεργασία μεταξύ περιφέρειας και δήμων γιατί μόνο έτσι μπορούν να ιεραρχηθούν τα όποια προβλήματα έτσι ώστε τα διαθέσιμα κονδύλια να κατανέμονται σε έργα σπουδαιότητας και δευτερεύοντας σε έργα μικρής σημασίας και  βεβαίως όχι σε έργα που έχουν να κάνουν μόνο με δημόσιες σχέσεις στην πλάτη των χρημάτων που διαθέτει το ελληνικό κράτος και η Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση για υποδομές.

Για ποιον λόγο συμπορεύεστε με τον κ. Παναγιώτη Νίκα και συντάσσεστε στον συνδυασμό του; Σε αυτή σας την απόφαση κύριο ρόλο έπαιξε η προτίμηση του κόμματος στο πρόσωπό του ή η προσωπικότητα και η εμπειρία του κ. Νίκα;

Ο Παναγιώτης Νίκας είναι ένας επιτυχημένος δήμαρχος Καλαμάτας και αυτή δεν είναι μόνο η προσωπική μου άποψη, καθώς η Καλαμάτα τον έχει εκλέξει δήμαρχο τρεις φορές, αλλά το λένε και τα έργα του, που έχουν δημιουργήσει αυτή την εικόνα της Καλαμάτας η οποία δίνει την εντύπωση ότι ζουν εκτός της ελληνικής κρίσης για πάρα πολλά χρόνια.

Ο Παναγιώτης Νίκας στηρίχθηκε από τη Νέα Δημοκρατία ως υποψήφιος περιφερειάρχης Πελοποννήσου, έτσι κυρίαρχο στοιχείο για τη δική μου επιλογή είναι η εμπειρία και ικανότητά του. Να σημειώσω βέβαια ότι ποτέ δεν έχω κρύψει την ταυτότητά μου ούτε παρεκκλίνει από τη στήριξη στις επιλογές της ΝΔ, ούτε βέβαια αυτό έχει γίνει συγκυριακά και ανάλογα με τις υπάρχουσες συνθήκες.

Εγώ σταθερά είμαι μέλος της Νέας Δημοκρατίας και στηρίζω τις επιλογές της, με τιμά με την φιλιά του ο πρόεδρος Κυριάκος Μητσοτάκης και σαφώς και θα στήριζα την επιλογή του, η οποία είναι μια κατάλληλη επιλογή για την επόμενη μέρα στην περιφέρεια Πελοποννήσου.

Θα θέλαμε να μας δώσετε ένα-δύο στοιχεία του πολιτικού σχεδιασμού της Νέας Δημοκρατίας και της παράταξής σας για την Περιφέρεια Πελοποννήσου.

Δίνοντας μόνο μερικές γραμμές, μιας και δεν έχει ανακοινωθεί επίσημα το πρόγραμμα, θεωρώ ότι σημαντικό ρόλο παίζουν οι υποδομές και τα έργα πνοής, η στήριξη του πρωτογενούς τομέα και η στήριξη του τουρισμού.

Εννοείται ότι σημαντικότατο ρόλο παίζουν τα απορρίμματα και η διαχείριση τους, δεν κομίζω γλαύκας εις Αθήνας, λέγοντας ότι τα απορρίμματα είναι ένα θέμα που ταλανίζει εδω και δεκαετίες την περιφέρεια Πελοποννήσου και δεν έχει λυθεί ακόμα, με τις ευθύνες να βαραίνουν αυτούς που έχουν την ευθύνη.

Στόχος είναι λύσουμε το πρόβλημα, σε καμία περίπτωση δεν θέλουμε να ακυρώσουμε ότι θετικό ενδεχόμενος έχει γίνει ούτε να πάμε το θέμα στις χρόνια πίσω. Πρέπει να υπάρξει μια επόμενη μέρα που θα λαμβάνονται υπόψη οι ιδιαιτερότητες τις περιβαλλοντικές και τις αρχαιολογικές και θα εξασφαλίσουμε ότι ο πολίτης της Αρκαδίας και της Πελοποννήσου δεν θα επιβαρύνεται περισσότερο από ό,τι του αναλογεί. Έτσι θα εξασφαλίσουμε μια σύμβαση με όποια διαπραγμάτευση θα χρειαστεί η οποία δεν θα θέτει όρους που θα είναι ένα κόστος υπέρογκο για τον πολίτη.

Είμαι υπέρ του μοντέλου ΣΔΙΤ η οποία συμφωνεί με την ιδεολογία μου το οικονομικό και το φιλελεύθερο, έτσι θα κρατήσουμε τα όποια θετικά προφανώς όμως θα υπάρξει επαναδιαπραγμάτευση.

Πώς κρίνετε τον «Κλεισθένη Ι» σε σχέση με τις αυτοδιοικητικές εκλογές; Πιστεύετε ότι η Τοπική Αυτοδιοίκηση είναι ώριμη για να προχωρήσει στις συνεργασίες που ενδεχομένως απαιτηθούν μεταξύ διαφορετικών πολιτικών δυνάμεων;

Οι συνεργασίες είναι απαραίτητες στην τοπική αυτοδιοίκηση, μιας και προβλήματα είναι κοινά, αλλά ο τρόπος με τον οποίο εισήχθη ο «Κλεισθένης Ι» εγκυμονεί κινδύνους και φαίνεται ότι η επόμενη μέρα στην αυτοδιοίκηση θα είναι δύσκολη στη λήψη αποφάσεων εξαιτίας τους ότι περνάμε σε μια πολύ διαφορετική δομή των περιφερειακών και των δημοτικών συμβουλίων. Οι συνεργασίες είναι αιτούμενο, προφανώς όμως η συναλλαγή προεκλογικά αλλά και μετεκλογικά είναι κάτι που πρέπει να το αποφύγουμε αφού φοβάμαι ότι με τις διατάξεις του «Κλεισθένη Ι» κάτι τέτοιο δεν αποφεύγεται.

Με ποιες πολιτικές δυνάμεις πιστεύετε ότι είναι πιο κοντά η παράταξη του Παναγιώτη Νίκα;

Η παράταξη απευθύνεται σε όλο τον λαό της Πελοποννήσου, δεν έχουμε στεγανά και ήδη από τα ανακοινωμένα ονόματα στην περιφερειακή ενότητα Αρκαδίας, δεν είναι όλοι απολύτως προερχόμενοι από τη Νέα Δημοκρατία. Αυτό είναι ένα δείγμα που δείχνει ότι εμείς δεν βλέπουμε την παράταξη ως υποψηφιότητα της Νέας Δημοκρατίας μόνο, αλλά ως μια υποψηφιότητα που στηρίζεται από την ΝΔ για να λύσει τα προβλήματα της περιφέρειας Πελοποννήσου, απευθυνόμενοι σε όλο τον κόσμο που έχει την ίδια φιλελεύθερη άποψη για την αντιμετώπιση των προβλημάτων και ένα ίδιο ύφος και ήθος για την αντιμετώπιση των προβλημάτων.

Υπάρχει δυνατότητα συνεργασίας με την νυν περιφερειακή αρχή;

Εμείς στοχεύουμε και θα κερδίσουμε τις εκλογές. Την επόμενη μέρα θα απευθυνθούμε σε όλους, προκειμένου να αντιμετωπίσουμε τα προβλήματα.

Πιστεύω ότι δεν θα υπάρξει κανείς που να πει, «εγώ δεν συναινώ για να λύσουμε τα προβλήματα της περιφέρειας, άσχετα με το οποίος φταίει τώρα».

Το κόμματα θα παίξουν ρόλο στην συνεργασία ή μη των παρατάξεων του ΠεΣυ;

Την επόμενη μέρα πιστεύω δεν θα υπάρξει κανείς που δεν θα θέλει να συνεργαστεί με την περιφερειακή αρχή, για να λύσουμε τα προβλήματα. Εμείς στηριζόμαστε από τη ΝΔ, είναι προφανές ότι το κόμμα έχει κάνει γνωστό ότι τα στελέχη του τα καλεί όλα να στηρίξουν την επιλογή Νίκα και προφανές είναι επίσης ότι όποιοι θέλουν να  λέγονται στελέχη της ΝΔ θα κρίνονται από την παρουσία τους στην εκλογή αυτή.

Την επόμενη μέρα κανένα κόμμα δεν μπορεί να αρνηθεί στην περιφερειακή αρχή του Παναγιώτη Νίκα να αντιμετωπίσει τα προβλήματα της περιφέρειας και θέλω να πιστεύω ότι κανένας δεν θα προκρίνει μικροκομματικά κριτήρια.

Ποια θα ήταν η πρώτη παρέμβαση που θα προτείνατε, εφόσον είχατε εκλεγεί, σε σχέση με τα έργα στην Περιφέρεια Πελοποννήσου;

Μιας και η ΠΕ Αρκαδίας έχει μείνει πίσω από τις υπόλοιπες περιφερειακές ενότητες, την επόμενη μέρα στόχος είναι ο μηχανισμός παραγωγής έργων να γίνει απολυτός ανοιχτός και διαφανής, έτσι ώστε ο σχεδιασμός να γίνεται με βάση τις ανάγκες της Αρκαδίας και όχι με βάση μικροπολιτικά κριτήρια.

Μαθαίνω ότι υπάρχουν έργα χωρίς τις απαραίτητες εγκρίσεις στα άρπα-κόλλα της τελευταίας στιγμής

Ο μηχανισμός παραγωγής θα παίρνει την αμέσως επόμενη μέρα τις κατευθυντήριες γραμμές, θα γίνεται ο στρατηγικός σχεδιασμός από την περιφερειακή αρχή.
«Όλα θα γίνονται με διάφανες διαδικασίες και χωρίς στεγανά, χωρίς αποκλεισμούς»

Οι υπηρεσίες θα λειτουργούν με κατευθύνσεις, αλλά όχι με επηρεασμούς και προφανώς δεν θα αποτελούν εργαλείο μικροπολιτική αλλά εργαλείο έργων.

Στην προτελευταία, αλλά και στην τελευταία συνεδρίαση του Περιφερειακού Συμβουλίου οι ανεξάρτητοι πλέον περιφερειακοί σύμβουλοι της παράταξης Τατούλη, στελέχη και μέλη της ΝΔ, δεν εμφανίστηκαν. Με δεδομένο ότι η περιφερειακή αρχή έχει ακόμα δρόμο μπροστά της και θα είναι ενεργή ως τον Αύγουστο, πώς κρίνετε αυτή τη στάση αυτοδιοικητικές, οι οποίοι εξελέγησαν για να βρίσκονται στο ΠεΣυ; Με λίγα λόγια: το κόμμα ή την αυτοδιοίκηση έχει υποχρέωση να υπηρετεί ένας αυτοδιοικητικός;

Ο αυτοδιοικητικός έχει την υποχρέωση να υπηρετεί τα συμφέροντα του τόπου. Να τονίσω ότι στο τελευταία ΠεΣυ δεν απείχαν μονό στελέχη της ΝΔ αλλά και από όλα τα κόμματα και τις παρατάξεις της αντιπολίτευσης.

Η απερχόμενη περιφερειακή αρχή θα πρέπει να κατανοήσει ότι δύο μήνες πριν τις εκλογές δεν μπορεί να προσποιείται ότι θέλει να λύσει τα προβλήματα τα οποία δεν έχει λύσει τα τελευταία 9 χρόνια.

«Θα πρέπει να διατηρηθεί ένα μίνιμουμ πολιτική συνεργασίας και πολιτικού πολιτισμού βάσει του οποίου δεν θα κληθεί κανείς να πάρει αποφάσεις που θα δεσμεύουν την επόμενη περιφερειακή αρχή.

Δόξα τω Θεώ απομένουν μόνο δύο μήνες έως τις εκλογές, ό,τι δεν έγινε είναι ευθύνη αυτών που δεν το έκαναν, από εδώ και στις εξής είναι προφανές και αυτονόητο ότι δεν μπορεί να κανείς να δεσμεύσει τον επόμενο.

Μετά τις εκλογές με την περιφερειακή αρχή του Παναγιώτη Νίκα θα μπορέσουν να λυθούν τα προβλήματα και με ευρύτερες συναινέσεις, αλλά όχι με τον εκβιασμό της τελευταίας στιγμής.

Κλείνοντας τη συνέντευξη, ο κ. Λαμπρόπουλος κάλεσε όλες τις γυναίκες της Αρκαδίας στην εναρκτήρια προεκλογική του εκδήλωση που θα γίνει στο κέντρο «Πεινακοθήκη» την Κυριακή 17 Μαρτίου 2019 στις 11:00.

Με τον Νίκο Γιαννακόπουλο να βρίσκεται για μία ακόμα αγωνιστική στις βασικές επιλογές του Τραϊανού Δέλλα ο Παναιτωλικός διέλυσε στο Αγρίνιο με 5-0 τον Πανιώνιο στο παιχνίδι που έριξε την αυλαία της 24ης αγωνιστικής του πρωταθλήματος της Super League.

Ο Αρκάς κίπερ στα τελευταία παιχνίδια είναι στην βασική ενδεκάδα της ομάδας του πραγματοποιώντας την 8η εφετινή του συμμετοχή και 6η συνεχόμενη δείχνοντας ιδιαίτερα σταθερός και εμπνέοντας μεγάλη σιγουριά στην άμυνα του.

Κόντρα στον Πανιώνιο ο Νίκος Γιαννακόπουλος δεν είχε πολύ δουλειά βάση της εξέλιξης που είχε η αναμέτρηση ωστόσο σε δύο περιπτώσεις όταν και χρειάστηκε έδωσε λύσεις κρατώντας το μηδέν στην εστία του.

          Σύλληψη για κατοχή όπλων, ναρκωτικών και αρχαίων αντικειμένων      Cache   Translate Page      

Συνελήφθη, σήμερα (12.3.2019) το πρωί, από αστυνομικούς του Τμήματος Ασφαλείας Σπάρτης, 71χρονος ημεδαπός, για παραβάσεις των νομοθεσιών για την προστασία των αρχαιοτήτων και εν γένει της πολιτιστικής κληρονομιάς, τα όπλα και τα ναρκωτικά.

Ειδικότερα, ύστερα από κατάλληλη αξιολόγηση και αξιοποίηση στοιχείων και μετά από οργανωμένη αστυνομική επιχείρηση, αστυνομικοί του Τμήματος Ασφαλείας Σπάρτης, σήμερα (12.3.2019) το πρωί, σε τοπική κοινότητα του Δήμου Σπάρτης Λακωνίας, πραγματοποίησαν έρευνα στην οικία του 71χρονου, όπου βρήκαν συνολικά και κατέσχεσαν:

  • πήλινο μικρογραφικό αγγείο και τμήμα αμφοροειδούς αγγείου, τα οποία χρονολογούνται στους Κλασσικούς και πιθανόν Ελληνιστικούς χρόνους, αντίστοιχα,
  • πιστόλι,
  • περίστροφο,
  • ποσότητα κάνναβης, συνολικού βάρους -56,9- γραμμαρίων και
  • έντεκα (11) φυσίγγια.

Τα παραπάνω αρχαία αντικείμενα, αφού επιδείχθηκαν σε αρχαιολόγο κρίθηκαν ότι εμπίπτουν στις προστατευτικές διατάξεις της νομοθεσίας «για την Προστασία των Αρχαιοτήτων και εν γένει της Πολιτιστικής Κληρονομιάς» και θα αποσταλούν στην αρμόδια Υπηρεσία.

Ο συλληφθείς θα οδηγηθεί στον κ. Εισαγγελέα Πρωτοδικών Σπάρτης, ενώ η αστυνομική έρευνα και το προανακριτικό έργο, διενεργούνται από το Τμήμα Ασφαλείας Σπάρτης.

          Τατούλης: Το θέμα των απορριμμάτων έχει λήξει      Cache   Translate Page      

Με τη φράση «το θέμα των απορριμμάτων έχει λήξει», ο περιφερειάρχης Πέτρος Τατούλης τοποθετήθηκε απέναντι στην πρόταση της θεματικής αντιπεριφερειάρχη κυρίας Ντίνας Νικολάκου να μην τεθεί σε ψηφοφορία το θέμα των απαλλοτριώσεων που απαιτούνται, προκειμένου να προχωρήσει η ΣΔΙΤ των απορριμμάτων την Τρίτη 12 Μαρτίου. Η κυρία Νικολάκου αιτιολόγησε την πρότασή της, λέγοντας ότι δεν πρέπει η περιφερειακή αρχή να κάνει τη χάρη στην αντιπολίτευση και στους «ανεξάρτητους» να είναι απόντες από την ψηφοφορία, παρά το γεγονός ότι το θέμα θα περνούσε άνετα, καθώς υπήρχε η απαραίτητη πλειοψηφία.

Όπως είπε ο κ. Τατούλης, το θέμα της συζήτησης είναι εντελώς τυπικό, καθώς ήδη οι αποφάσεις έχουν ληφθεί. «Το Συμβούλιο είναι νομότυπο, συμπληρώσαμε τις πέντε ημέρες. Δεν θέλω κανένας να χρεωθεί την ιστορία της απαρτίας, καθώς το πρόβλημα της απαρτίας έχει προκληθεί από εκείνους που έχουν σχέση με τη μαφία των σκουπιδιών. Ας αφήσουμε την απόφαση προς το τέλος, και ας το εκτιμήσουμε τότε, για να μην δημιουργηθεί κανένα πρόβλημα σε κανέναν από τους συμμετέχοντες», είπε ο κ. Τατούλης, προτείνοντας το θέμα να τεθεί σε ψηφοφορία αλλά στο τέλος της συνεδρίασης.

Σημειωτέον ότι στην πρόταση της κυρίας Νικολάκου να μεταφερθεί στο θέμα σε επόμενη συνεδρίαση, ο πρόεδρος του ΠεΣυ Ηλίας Στρατηγάκος απάντησε ότι το θέμα πρέπει να συζητηθεί και ότι η ευθύνη ανήκει αποκλειστικά στους απόντες, ενώ ο κ. Χειβιδόπουλος επεσήμανε ότι το συγκεκριμένο ζήτημα έχει συζητηθεί τουλάχιστον είκοσι φορές στο Περιφερειακό Συμβούλιο και τουλάχιστον άλλες τόσες στην Οικονομική Επιτροπή, ενώ αναφέρθηκε σε ένα πρόσφατο ταξίδι του στα Γιάννινα, όπου διαπίστωσε πόσο καλά λειτουργεί εκεί η μονάδα διαχείρισης απορριμμάτων, ίδια με το μοντέλο της ΣΔΙΤ Πελοποννήσου:

Είναι άδικο για τον Τατούλη και μετά για την παράταξη. Νιώσαμε περήφανοι στα Γιάννινα επειδή έχουμε υπερασπιστεί ένα τέτοιο έργο, νιώσαμε άνθρωποι. Όσοι έχουμε πάει σε ΧΥΤΑ και ΧΑΔΑ της περιοχής μας, νιώσαμε άνθρωποι.

Το θέμα, μετά την πρόταση του περιφερειάρχη, θα ψηφιστεί στο τέλος της συνεδρίασης.

Με απόφαση που υπέγραψε ο Υπουργός Περιβάλλοντος και Ενέργειας, Γιώργος Σταθάκης, καθορίζεται ο χώρος για την εγκατάσταση κέντρου αποτέφρωσης νεκρών στο δήμο Αθηναίων, στον Ελαιώνα.

«Με την απόφαση αυτή δίνεται λύση σε ένα αίτημα σημαντικής μερίδας πολιτών, το οποίο εκκρεμούσε επί δεκαετίες», δήλωσε ο κ. Σταθάκης. «Δίνεται η δυνατότητα στο δήμο Αθηναίων να αξιοποιήσει κοινόχρηστους χώρους που κατέχει στην περιοχή, ξεπερνώντας τη δυσκαμψία του θεσμικού πλαισίου για ένα ζήτημα κοινωφελούς λειτουργίας. Δυνατότητα που είναι συμβατή με το νέο Προεδρικό Διάταγμα των χρήσεων γης, σύμφωνα με το οποίο οι εγκαταστάσεις αυτές συμπεριλαμβάνονται πλέον στις κοινωνικές εξυπηρετήσεις για τους κατοίκους».

Μαθητές, εκπαιδευτικοί και οικογένεια σε μια εβδομάδα εθελοντισμού για όλη την Ελλάδα!

Μια μεγάλη εθελοντική συμμαχία μόλις ξεκίνησε!

Για μία ακόμα χρονιά μαθητές, εκπαιδευτικοί, οικογένεια και φίλοι εθελοντές, δίνουμε τα χέρια, καθώς όλη η πρώτη εβδομάδα του Απριλίου είναι αφιερωμένη στον εθελοντισμό, σε όλα τα σχολεία της πατρίδας μας, στα οποία ετοιμάζονται εντυπωσιακές δράσεις σε τέσσερις κύριους άξονες: Περιβάλλον, Συνάνθρωπος, Κοινότητα, Φιλοζωΐα.

Για πρώτη φορά, το "Let'sdoitGreece", η μεγαλύτερη ταυτόχρονη εθελοντική δράση της χώρας και το "Νοιάζομαι και Δρω", το εκπαιδευτικό πρόγραμμα για τον εθελοντισμό και τον ενεργό πολίτη που υλοποιούν το Μη-Κερδοσκοπικό Σωματείο Δεσμός και το Ίδρυμα Λαμπράκη, ενώνουν τις δυνάμεις τους οργανώνοντας κοινή Σχολική Εβδομάδα Εθελοντισμού.

Πρόκειται για την εβδομάδα από 1 έως 7 Απριλίου 2019, όπου το κάθε σχολείο μπορεί να οργανώσει τις δικές του δράσεις, να προσκαλέσει και άλλα σχολεία, και να συνεργαστεί με τους φορείς και τις ομάδες της περιοχής του, στέλνοντας ένα ηχηρό μήνυμα εθελοντισμού και προσφοράς σε κάθε γωνιά της χώρας.

Για την πραγματοποίηση του μεγάλου αυτού εθελοντικού εγχειρήματος έχει δοθεί και φέτος σχετική έγκριση από το Υπουργείο Παιδείας, ενώ ήδη ο πανελλαδικός χάρτης της δράσης έχει αρχίσει να γεμίζει με σχολεία τόσο της πρωτοβάθμιας όσο και της δευτεροβάθμιας εκπαίδευσης.

Μπορείτε να δηλώσετε συμμετοχή στις σελίδες και καθώς επίσης και στο κοινό  που δημιουργήθηκε για να αποτυπώνονται συγκεντρωτικά οι δράσεις των σχολείων.

Το δικό σου το σχολείο, είναι μέσα;

          Μύδροι εναντίον «ανεξάρτητων» και αντιπολίτευσης από την παράταξη Τατούλη      Cache   Translate Page      

Δεν έμεινε αναπάντητη η στάση της αντιπολίτευσης, σύσσωμης πλην του κ. Ξεροβάσιλα, να απόσχει για δεύτερη φορά από τη συνεδρίαση του Περιφερειακού Συμβουλίου Πελοποονήσου την Τρίτη 12 Μαρτίου.

«Πρέπει να απαντήσουμε σε όλους αυτούς που θέλουν να μας πουν να σταματήσουμε τη λειτουργία του ΠεΣυ, όταν η επόμενη θητεία αρχίζει τον Σεπτέμβριο ου 2019. Αντιλαμβάνεστε την ευθύνη της παράταξής μας όταν έχει απέναντί της την περίεργη συνεργασία ΣΥΡΙΖΑ, ΚΙΝΑΛ, υποτμήματος της ΝΔ, Χρυσής Αυγής, Οικολόγων. Δεν θα αφήσουμε ούτε ένα λεπτό από την ευθύνη και τη συνέπειά μας απέναντι στους πολίτες, να δουλεύουμε για αυτούς. Ο κ. Τατούλης έχει πάρει το σύνολο των ΠΕ επάνω του», είπε η κυρία Νικολάκου.

Ο κ. Στρατηγάκος, πρόεδρος του ΠεΣυ, έκανε μια παρατήρηση, πάντως, λέγοντας ότι οι δύο αντιπρόσωποι του κ. Δέδε, που ανήκουν στο ΚΙΝΑΛ, δεν είναι παρόντες, αλλά ασφαλώς δεν απουσίαζαν όλα τα μέλη του Κινήματος Αλλαγής από τη συνεδρίαση.

Ο κ. Στεφανόπουλος παρατήρησε ότι αποτελεί προσβολή για τη δημοκρατία η αποχή σύσσωμων των παρατάξεων και ότι η στάση αυτή της αντιπολίτευσης βρίσκεται στα όρια του πραξικοπήματος. «Ο ρόλος τους δεν είναι να ξεγελούν με ψέματα και παραμυθάκια τον λαό της Πελοποννήσου». Μάλιστα, έκανε αναφορά στις «αποστασίες» στη Βουλή των Ελλήνων:

Κάποιοι θα φωνάζουν αύριο εδώ απ' έξω «να καεί, να καεί» η περιφερειακή αρχή.

Στη συνέχεια, ο κ. Στεφανόπουλος χαρακτήρισε αίσχος και ντροπή την απουσία της αντιπολίτευσης και έστρεψε τα βέλη του εναντίον εκείνων που εξελέγησαν με την παράταξη Τατούλη αλλά όταν «τους τράβηξε από το μανίκι το κόμμα» όπως είπε, άφησαν τη θέση τους στο ΠεΣυ, εννοώντας ασφαλώς τους συμβούλους που ανήκουν  στη Νέα Δημοκρατία.

Τον λόγο έλαβαν οι περιφερειακοί σύμβουλοι κυρία Μπούζα και ο κ. Παπαφωτίου, οι οποίοι επίσης καταδίκασαν τη στάση της αντιπολίτευσης αλλά και όλους όσοι προτιμούν το κόμμα από τη θέση στην οποία ορκίστηκαν.

Για ακόμα μία φορά, «άφαντη» ήταν η αντιπολίτευση στη συνεδρίαση του Περιφερειακού Συμβουλίου Πελοποννήσου την Τρίτη 12 Μαρτίου.

Σημειωτέον ότι η αντιπολίτευση απείχε από τη συνεδρίαση και την προηγούμενη εβδομάδα, με αφορμή την επανακατάθεση προς ψήφιση των αναγκαστικών απαλλοτριώσεων που απαιτούνται, προκειμένου να προχωρήσει το έργο της ΣΔΙΤ των απορριμμάτων, ύστερα από την ακύρωση προηγούμενης απόφασης του Περιφερειακού Συμβουλίου από την Αποκεντρωμένη.

Μάλιστα, η παράταξη «Αγωνιστική Συνεργασία Πελοποννήσου» νωρίς το απόγευμα της Τρίτης εξέδωσε ανακοίνωση με την οποία καλεί την περιφερειακή αρχή να αποσύρει το επίμαο θέμα από την ημερήσια διάταξη, για να μην νομιμοποιήσει το ΠεΣυ την απόφαση που έχει ήδη λάβει η κυβέρνηση για τις αναγκαστικές απαλλοτριώσεις, με το αιτιολογικό ότι η κυβέρνηση αποφασίζει υπέρ των ιδιωτικών συμφερόντων.

Oh well, I'm sure he had good reasons. Obviously, I wasn't there! :-) The News Miner and Anchorage Daily News have blocked me now. Apparently, I have seen my quota of stories at this point on both my computer and phone. lol. I'm cheap, I don't pay for anything. I notice that the Berington twins are once again traveling in tandem as is their usual routine. Teaming up apparently works for them. They almost always finish in the upper half. I keep saying this, but every year, I'm always amazed at how far these dogs run in the Quest and the Iditarod. It boggles the mind, or at least it does mine! It would be like me running my dogs from Virginia to Texas. Or someone sledding from upstate New York to Ft. Lauderdale. My dogs might make it to the North Carolina border, maybe. There's a British guy on YouTube that is living in the US right now, and he talks about the size of the American states, and how many are larger than a standard country. He was shocked when he took a look at the area of Alaska (he was comparing states to the UK). I just don't think most people really understand that.

That would have happened if Line 3 had resumed operation as initially scheduled, at the end of 2019. The delay to 2020 could be very damaging for Canada’s oil industry.

          Chicago Police Conduct Wellness Check at R. Kelly's Apartment After Alleged "Suicide Pact" Call      Cache   Translate Page      

Chicago Police have responded to a call allegedly made at R. Kelly's apartment at Trump Tower.

The Chicago Police Department said in a statement obtained by E! News they received the call from the 400 block of North Wabash street at around 5:18 p.m. CPD's statement said, "Police received a call from an out of state anonymous caller stating that people at the location were going to carry out a suicide pact. Police on scene conducting a wellness check and it is not a bonafide incident."

Trump Tower Chicago is located at 401 N. Wabash Street.

Anthony GuglielmiCPD's Chief Communications Officer, tweeted, "18th district officers responded and this call is unfounded."

Guglielmi's tweet was in response to an account called Spot News, which first wrote about the call. "Trump Tower: a call of person threatening suicide. be advised, this call involves @rkelly," Spot News wrote.

8 Bombshells From R. Kelly's First Interview Since Sexual Abuse Charges

Another Twitter user posted a recording from the police dispatch asking officers to check in at Trump Tower. The dispatch officer said a call came in from the National Trafficking Hotline and that it was "victims of R. Kelly" who were "planning to carry out a suicide pact."

In 2017, BuzzFeed News reported that Kelly was allegedly holding women in a "cult"-like atmosphere. These stories were magnified once again in large part to the Lifetime docu-series Surviving R. Kelly.

The "Ignition" rapper has been embroiled in a slew of legal problems and scandals as of late.

Kelly was arrested on March 6 after failing to pay $161,000 in back child support to his ex-wife Andrea "Drea" Kelly. They have three children together and he reportedly had not paid the required $20,000 a month payments since last year. He was released on March 9 after posting a $161,663 bond. A Cook County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman did not specify who made the payment.

Kelly's attorney Steven Greenberg defended his client after Kelly's release and spoke about the musician's future. 

"Of course he's concerned about his career—wouldn't you be concerned about your career? But he's going to go on, he's going to continue to make music, and he's going to perform if he can," Greenberg said. "That's going to be up to the judge. Does he think his career is over? No, absolutely not."

Before leaving the jail, Kelly reportedly said, "We are gonna straighten all this stuff out."

On Feb. 22, just weeks before the child support case, the 52-year-old singer was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. Nine of his counts allegedly involved victims between the ages of 13 and 16. He pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti reportedly obtained a sex tape allegedly involving the artist and a 14-year-old girl and gave it to authorities. Gloria Allred said at a press conference on Sunday that her client found another sex tape that allegedly has Kelly in it and they have reportedly turned it over to the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York. 

Kelly turned himself into police on the night of Feb. 22. He was subsequently issued a $1 million bond and released on Feb. 25 after posting a $100,000 bail.

He recently sat down with Gayle King for an emotional interview where he insisted the stories and allegations against him were "not true."

          Rob Lowe Throws Shade at Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman      Cache   Translate Page      

If there was a class in throwing shade, Rob Lowe would have passed.

Earlier today, news broke that Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are among the 40 individuals who have been charged in connection with an alleged college entrance exam scheme.

Court documents obtained by E! News show that both actresses have been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

While both parties are staying quiet on the allegations, Rob's son John Owen Lowe spoke out on social media.

"I studied for MONTHS for the SAT. Twice, sometimes three times a week. Tons of practice tests. Ended up taking the SAT multiple times as well. College apps were no joke... the amount of stress kids put into that to potentially lose a spot to someone unfairly is horrible," the Stanford University grad shared on Twitter. "And let me say: I'm incredibly grateful that I had the privilege and opportunity to have a tutor and to afford practice test programs. A lot of kids don't. And to think of them losing their chance at their dream school to someone undeserving is really, really gross."

Felicity Huffman Arrested, Lori Loughlin Charged in College Admission Scandal

"Still proud of this achievement," he wrote with a photo from graduation day. "Happy for everyone out there who earned their accomplishments...and really sad for those who were never allowed the opportunity."

When Rob saw his son's messages, he decided to RT one message with an added caption. "Very proud of my honest, hardworking sons," the actor wrote.

Ultimately, the Parks and Recreation star isn't the only famous parent sounding off on today's scandal.

Bethenny Frankel was outspoken on Twitter and said she was "confused all around."      

"The kids know. If a kid isn't smart enough to know their leg isn't broken or they don't take crew or that it's not their bar mitzvah that day, they should be applying to bubblegum University," the Skinnygirl CEO shared. "Rich parents further protecting the kids. Ok I'll stop... maybe."

U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Massachusetts told E! News Tuesday morning that Lori has not been arrested. She is currently out of the country but is scheduled to surrender to federal officials in Los Angeles.

As for Felicity, she was one of 13 defendants taken into custody this morning in the Los Angeles area. She is expected in court later today.

          Your Favorite Britney Spears Songs Will Soon Have Their Own Musical      Cache   Translate Page      

We're going absolutely "Crazy" over some big news about Britney Spears. The sensational pop star is taking Broadway—sort of.

According to The New York Times, the James L. Nederlander Theater in Chicago is producing a comedy musical that will feature 23 of Spears' hit songs. Though the musical features a long list of tracks from her catalog, the play itself isn't actually about the singer.

The play is hilariously named "Once Upon a One More Time" and will give a new life to some of the most well-known princesses. According to the Times, we can expect to see Rapunzel, Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty discussing Grimm's Fairy Tales at a book club. Their worlds are then turned upside down after receiving a copy of Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique all with the help of their fairy godmother. 

The bookwriter for "Once Upon a One More Time," Jon Hartmere, explained to the paper, "Cinderella is having an existential crisis, and she has a posse of famous princesses, and her stepmother is the main antagonist, and there's also Prince Charming and a dwarf we've never met — the eighth dwarf — and a narrator who is unhappy his system is being dismantled before his eyes."

Secrets You Might Not Know About Britney Spears' ...Baby One More Time

Hartmere said the main characters in the musical will "get deeper into modern ideas" such as "second and third-wave feminism" as well as storytelling and social norms. "It's also superfun and funny," he told the Times.

The musical has an all-star team behind it, too. It will be  produced by the theater's owner James L. Nederlander, directed by Kristin Hanggi and choreographed by Keone & Mari Madrid. Hanggi's prior work includes Rock of Ages while Keone & Mari Madrid worked on World of Dance and Justin Bieber's Love Yourself.

The "Toxic" singer has reportedly attended one of the readings already.

The news about the play comes amid Spears' work hiatus due to her father's recent health struggles.

Those eagerly awaiting to see "Once Upon a One More Time" will have to wait a few more months. It is reported to start previews on Oct. 29 and officially open on Nov. 13. until Dec. 1. There are high hopes that the show will head to Broadway after its run in Chicago.

"I'm so excited to have a musical with my songs—especially one that takes place in such a magical world filled with characters that I grew up on, who I love and adore," Spears said in a statement. "This is a dream come true for me!"

"Throughout her career, Britney has captivated fans across the globe with her singular brand of energy and resilience," Nederlander said. "For three years, we have been working closely with her to develop a concept that perfectly encapsulates her unique spirit, and are so thrilled to finally bring this joyous and electrifying show to the stage."

Budget talks are intensifying in Albany as the deadline nears, and they are revealing tensions and divides between Democratic governor Andrew Cuomo and the all-democratic state legislature. Cuomo began the week with a list of items he says he needs in the state budget in order for him to agree to it. They include a property tax cap, criminal justice reforms and a congestion pricing plan for parts of Manhattan to help pay for fixing public transit. And Cuomo, in an exchange with Spectrum News reporter Nick Reisman, said he won’t accept any changes to his proposal to make the temporary property tax cap permanent. “ No, No, no, ” the governor said “ Would you like to expand on that ?” asked Reisman. “No,” , the governor replied. The governor’s remarks annoyed the Democratic leaders of the legislature, who say the spending plan should be worked out amicably between the two equal branches of government.

Svincolata dai partiti, doveva decollare tre anni fa. Invece la più grande azienda culturale del Paese è rimasta nel parcheggio, invischiata nelle clientele e nelle inefficenze di sempre.
Mamma Rai impiega 13.058 dipendenti, di cui 1.760 giornalisti, suddivisi in 8 diverse testate: Tg1, Tg2, Tg3, TgR, Rainews 24, Il Giornale Radio, Rai Parlamento e Rai Sport. Il contratto giornalistico Rai è il più «blindato» d’ Italia: il costo azienda medio annuo è di 200.000 euro per ciascuno dei 210 capiredattori, 140.000 euro per i 300 capiservizio, 70.000 euro per i neoassunti.
Nel mondo, nessuna Tv pubblica ha tanti telegiornali nazionali. Un’ anomalia che risale ai tempi della «lottizzazione»: a ogni partito la sua area di influenza. Negli anni ha generato costi enormi poiché ogni testata ha un direttore, i vicedirettori, i tecnici, i giornalisti. E tutte le testate a coprire lo stesso evento.
Che senso ha, visto che ogni rete ha già gli spazi dedicati agli approfondimenti e ai talk, proprio per rappresentare le diverse letture dei fatti? La Bbc, una delle più grandi e influenti istituzioni giornalistiche al mondo, diffonde in Gran Bretagna un solo Tg: BBC news.
La Rai, con le tre testate nazionali, realizza ogni giorno oltre 25 edizioni di Tg; in Francia e Germania le edizioni quotidiane sono 7, nel Regno Unito e in Spagna 6. All’ offerta ipertrofica si aggiunge il canale Rainews 24, che trasmette notizie 24 ore al giorno. Abbiamo la più grande copertura informativa d’ Europa e un esercito di giornalisti, eppure, nonostante i telespettatori siano inesorabilmente in calo perché si informano sul mondo digitale, la Rai non ha un sito di news online.
Poi c’ è il tema delle sedi regionali: i 660 giornalisti fanno capo alla direzione Tgr, mentre le 22 sedi, con altrettanti direttori, che si occupano solo dei muri e dei tecnici, fanno capo a una fantomatica Direzione per il coordinamento delle sedi regionali ed estere.
Gli edifici sono faraonici, con interi piani inutilizzati, ma la qualità della cronaca locale non è sempre brillante: potenzialità enormi, inefficienza cronica. Ma, essendo i Tg regionali luoghi in cui sindaci e governatori esercitano la loro influenza, oltre che bacino di consenso per il potente sindacato Usigrai, si tira a campare.
Qualche esempio. In Emilia Romagna non c’ è una buona copertura del segnale e, in alcune zone, si vede il Tgr Veneto o il Tgr Marche; è presente una obsoleta «esterna 1» per le dirette, un mastodonte costoso usato solo per la messa della domenica, con una squadra di 5 persone che, per ragioni sindacali, non può fare altro quando il mezzo è fermo.
Al Tgr Lazio regna il degrado: dalle luci al neon fulminate alle cuffie della radiofonia fuori uso; tutti i giornalisti stanno a Saxa Rubra, nessun corrispondente dalle province. A Torino, per poter usare un mezzo satellitare leggero, adatto alle dirette, la Tgr deve chiedere l’ assenso a 4 diversi responsabili, una procedura che non si adatta ai tempi delle news. In Puglia, i due redattori territoriali hanno la telecamerina in dotazione, ma non la usano perché il sindacato non vuole.
A Sassari, 4 specializzati di ripresa non escono con la troupe, non guidano la macchina e stanno in studio, per quei due movimenti di camera che potrebbero anche fare i tecnici. Il caporedattore non può decidere sul loro utilizzo, perché dipendono dal direttore di sede. In Sicilia, gli impiegati di segreteria sarebbero disponibili e qualificati per archiviare e metadatare le immagini, ma non hanno accesso al sistema.
La Tgr Lombardia (con 50 giornalisti) è quella che collabora di più con i Tg nazionali; però Tg1, Tg2, Tg3, Rainews e Rai Sport hanno comunque tutti i propri giornalisti a Milano. Il materiale grezzo viene buttato, perché nessuno lo cataloga. Poi c’ è un aspetto che la dice lunga sulle competenze dei dirigenti: le testate nazionali e quelle regionali sono state digitalizzate con sistemi che non comunicano fra loro, per cui è difficile lo scambio di immagini.
Il Consiglio d’ amministrazione insediato nel 2015 è partito in quarta dando vita a Ray Play, ma la mission era proprio quella di rendere più efficiente la TgR, riorganizzare l’ offerta informativa nazionale e colmare il gap digitale. In questi 3 anni, il Cda è riuscito a far naufragare tutti i progetti.
Incluso quello per la nascita del sito unico di news online, già sviluppato dalla Direzione Digital e con la formazione presso le redazioni regionali già avviata (oggi sei regioni hanno il loro sito). Il motivo? Prima di dar vita a una nuova testata, bisognava ridurre il numero di quelle già esistenti.
Sta di fatto che il sito nazionale esistente è dentro a Rainews 24 e produce un traffico irrilevante. Questa è la classifica Audiweb degli utenti unici giornalieri, nell’ ultima settimana di giugno: RaiNews 95.000, TgCom 967.000, Corriere della Sera 1.300.000, Repubblica 1.400.000.
In sostanza tutti i cittadini sono obbligati a pagare il canone (1 miliardo e 700 milioni l’ incasso del 2017), ma chi si informa soltanto online non ha un servizio pubblico degno di questo nome. In compenso, lo stesso Cda ha portato avanti uno studio di fattibilità di un nuovo canale tradizionale in lingua inglese.
Ad occuparsene in prima persona la presidente Monica Maggioni, a fine mandato, e quindi in cerca di una futura direzione.
Questa è la Rai, che attende il prossimo giro di giostra. Il capitale umano che lavora ai piani bassi, dove si realizza il prodotto, ha bisogno di una forte spinta; speriamo che la giostra sia un «calcinculo». Con un management esperto e libero dai condizionamenti della politica, potrebbe uscirne un’ azienda leader in Europa.

          Election 2019: Dale Collier, Village of Cary trustee      Cache   Translate Page      
Name: Dale Collier Jr.

Age: 47

Town: Cary

Office sought: Cary Trustee

Occupation: owner/Vice President at Tri State Hydraulics Inc.


Social Media: We Unite Cary Facebook 


1.What is your largest priority for Cary if elected?

I want to improve the village's outreach with existing businesses in addition to fostering new economic development that will be sustainable for Cary and most importantly its residents. In conjunction with that, I think it is critical we actively seek out ways to facilitate seniors aging in place. I also believe that it is extraordinarily important to utilize the comprehensive plan as a focal point for moving projects forward in Cary

2. What changes should Cary make in the future?

Our community would benefit greatly from offering more for residents to stay local. I hope to change the scenery in the future by working diligently to promote Cary and entice more development that offers entertainment and dining.

3. How do you feel about Cary’s video gambling and any potential expansion into places such as gas stations?

I believe addressing each new proposal on an individual basis is key. I do not think there is a one-size-fits-all solution and we need to use a common sense approach to overseeing these games.

4. How do you feel about Cary's recent and upcoming senior housing projects?

I love seeing the new senior house projects. Seniors I have spoken with are looking to stay in Cary and want more options to do so.

5. How do you feel about the way that Cary handled its harassment investigation of a village trustee?

Simply put: If Cary's board would have had a Code of Conduct in place for trustees it would have been a cut a dry process. Instead I don’t endorse or support the conduct that occurred after, and I think it showed that we have a need for trustees who are willing to hear and consider an opinion they don’t necessarily agree with.

6. How do you feel about Cary's new social media policy?

I think it was a slow, but necessary step our village had to take to help convey meaning information. I think it is just one tool in the tool box but I am very pleased to see that we are offering a new approach to getting village news to our residents.

7. What else should voters know about you?

I’ve been very happily married for 20-plus years with three children ages 20, 17 and 6. I moved into Cary in 2002 and have been very lucky to be able to be very active ever since. I spent much of my childhood here on my grandparents farm off of Newbold and I have been proud for my children to call it home as well. I am a small business owner of Tri State Hydraulics and getting things done has been what my life has been about. For years, I have been lucky enough to spend my time in town going to Cary-Grove football and baseball games, Tracks and Galatis, Cary cruise nights, Main Street Fest and all of the parades Cary has had to offer over the years.

          "Vehicle purchases and student loans — whether for themselves or their children — are two of the..."      Cache   Translate Page      

Vehicle purchases and student loans — whether for themselves or their children — are two of the biggest contributors to increasing debt for older Americans. People 60 and up had total debt of $615 billion in 2017, according to TransUnion, which is less than millennials owe on student loans alone.

Americans 60 and older held 21 percent of total automotive balances in 2017, vs. 12 percent in 2010, TransUnion said. Auto loans now account for $246 billion, or 40 percent, of their total debt.

For all Americans, fast-rising student loan debt is sapping income they could have used for other purposes, including a vehicle. More than a quarter of millennials with student loan debt have delayed buying a car because of it, according to a survey by released in February, with the Midwest as the region most likely to cite loans holding back a vehicle purchase.

Mark Hamrick, Bankrate’s senior economic analyst, told Automotive News that many Americans are struggling with their finances even in a strong economy.

“It’s not unusual for many small towns in this country to have essentially not participated in the economic expansion in the past 10 years,” Hamrick said. “It doesn’t surprise me that the Midwest would be having some warning lights going off there.”

Student loan debt, which totaled $1.46 trillion in the fourth quarter for all ages, also is preventing younger Americans from purchasing homes, getting married and saving for retirement and emergencies, the Bankrate study found.

          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.

          Fox Condemns Pirro for Asking if Omar is Pro-Sharia      Cache   Translate Page      

Breitbart reported Monday that the Fox News Channel “condemned host Jeanine Pirro’s remarks on Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) use of a hijab and said the issue has been dealt with directly.” Sounds serious. But what Pirro actually said was something Fox should have been applauding, if it hadn’t already become just another establishment network.

Pirro said: “Think about this: She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat Party. So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

Predictably, the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) called on Fox to fire Pirro. Like a shark, CAIR can smell blood in the water: instead of defending Pirro for asking a perfectly legitimate question, Fox immediately reacted as if Pirro had stolen Barack Obama’s parking space, denouncing Pirro’s words with stern self-righteousness: “We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar. They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”

Pirro, issued a clarification, to little effect: “I’ve seen a lot of comments about my opening statement from Saturday night’s show and I did not call Rep. Omar un-American. My intention was to ask a question and start a debate, but of course because one is Muslim does not mean you don’t support the Constitution. I invite Rep. Omar to come on my show any time to discuss all of the important issues facing America today.”

Fox is increasingly slipping into the Leftist echo chamber. It is terrified of discussing these issues. A few years ago, Jeanine Pirro contacted me and was going to have me as a featured guest on a special show about Sharia. She was very excited about it, and all the arrangements were made to fly me in and get me set up in the studio. Then at the last minute, everything was canceled — it was clear that Fox executives had told her she was venturing into forbidden territory. They willingly kowtow to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s defamation campaign targeting foes of jihad terror and Sharia oppression of women and others. But last night, Pirro ventured off the reservation again, daring to suggest that Ilhan Omar’s hijab showed her to be Sharia-compliant.

There is so much confusion on this issue, even among people who should know better. Media critic John Nolte tweeted: “Does a Jewish man who covers his head put the Torah above the Constitution? Does a Catholic woman who covers head put the Pope above the Constitution? What a stupid thing to say.”

No in both cases, because in both cases the headwear in question is not part of a larger system that is incompatible with Constitutional rule. However, the hijab is part of such a system, and that’s all Pirro was saying. Fox should not have rebuked her, but this is the age of pandemic cowardice, so it was likely unrealistic to expect anything else.

Ilhan Omar herself, not surprisingly, was happier with Fox News than she has probably ever been, and tweeted: “Thank you, @FoxNews. No one’s commitment to our constitution should be questioned because of their faith or country of birth.”

But that wasn’t really what Pirro did. Pirro suggested that Omar’s anti-Semitism came from Sharia. And indeed, Sharia is indeed inveterately anti-Semitic: the Qur’an demonizes the Jews in numerous ways. It depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

Sharia also mandates that women cover their heads:

“And tell the believing women to reduce their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which appears thereof and to wrap their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.” (Qur’an 24:31)

“O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (Qur’an 33:59)

“Narrated `Aisha (the wife of the Prophet): `Umar bin Al-Khattab used to say to Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) “Let your wives be veiled” But he did not do so. The wives of the Prophet (ﷺ) used to go out to answer the call of nature at night only at Al-Manasi.’ Once Sauda, the daughter of Zam`a went out and she was a tall woman. `Umar bin Al-Khattab saw her while he was in a gathering, and said, ‘I have recognized you, O Sauda!’ He (`Umar) said so as he was anxious for some Divine orders regarding the veil (the veiling of women.) So Allah revealed the Verse of veiling. (Al-Hijab; a complete body cover excluding the eyes).” (Bukhari 79.14.6420)

Wearing hijab is a sign that one accepts these imperatives. That is not necessarily true, as lots of women of all perspectives wear headscarves, but when a Muslim woman wears hijab, it’s reasonable to surmise that she accepts the Qur’an and Sunnah, the sources of Sharia. Sharia denies the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, the equality of rights of women, and the equality of rights of non-Muslims. Wearing hijab is a sign of adherence to Sharia.

So what did Judge Jeanine Pirro say that was wrong about Ilhan Omar? She asked questions that need to be asked. Fox should be apologizing to Pirro, not Omar.
