          Russophobia, A WMD (Weapon Of Mass Deception)      Comment   Translate Page      

Authored by Jean Ranc via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

Russophobia, as psycho-social-political pathology, is diagnosed as a disorder in The West since before the 1000-year-old Roman-Orthodox religious schism and most recently manifested with a vengeance in the course of the 2013-14 with Edward Snowden’s revelations of mass surveillance by the US and its covert activities leading to the Ukraine coup with Russophobia used thereafter as a weapon of mass deception to inflame this latent pathology in the public.

After more than a year since we first heard the BBC “breaking news” about the “Russians Poisoning the Skipals”, all we have are allegations, but there is still no real evidence to present before a judge and jury for a just trial, only media propaganda which has provoked even more fear and hysteria meant to distract people from the government’s bungling and high level of anxiety over Brexit by once again blaming Russia. Never-the-less, it prompted politicians to administer instant sanctions against Russia as punishment. That first day, the "evidence", presented in the usual clipped, "authoritative" British accents, included interviews with a conservative British MP, then the former US Ambassador to Russia, Alexander Vershbow (2001-05), now with the notoriously hawkish US-based think tank, the Atlantic Council. Thus, the three of them: the BBC “journalist” and the two “experts”, colluded to transform false allegations into "facts"... fueled, as always, by their perpetual prejudice, RUSSOPHOBIA, in the course of their propaganda war to force Russia to surrender to American-led Western Domination or else: have their economy destroyed & their people suffer. Indeed, it is a threat to the whole world played to the discord of rattling nuclear swords with a chorus of vindictive Russian oligarchs, whom Putin expelled for robbing the Russian people. So, now living in London as expats, they would seem to be the more likely culprits. All the while elsewhere in London, thanks to our “special US-UK relationship”, Julian Assange has been excommunicated and imprisoned in a tiny “cell” at the Ecuador embassy for revealing embarrassing American secrets via Wikileaks.

There we have it: the poisoning of our minds by the media and politicians which are owned and controlled by the US-UK-EU 1%, who benefit from Western Hegemony. So, these deluded few are now desperately defending it from the rising powers led by Russia and China with India not far behind demanding a multi-polar, democratic world order.

My search for the roots of this particularly vicious and extremely dangerous hate campaign began in a Dartmouth College Russian Foreign Policy course, which led me to the book, “Russophobia: Anti-Russian Lobby and American Foreign Policy” by San Francisco State University Professor Andrei P. Tsygankov (2009). And there, the detoxification of my mind began as I studied his deft, well-documented deconstruction of the political propaganda disseminated “by various think tanks, congressional testimonials, activities of NGOs and the media” (preface p. XIII)

Then in Italy the following winter, I discovered the work of the Swiss journalist, Guy Mettan, in the Italian geopolitical journal, LiMes: an excerpt from his book, “Creating Russophobia: From the Great Religious Schism to Anti-Putin Hysteria” (2017). There, Mettan informs us that this psycho-social pathology in Western Civilization” goes back more than 1000 years: to the division of Christendom between the Orthodox and Roman churches. Indeed, his research into the depths of history confirms the diagnosis by our renowned American psychiatrist, Robert Jay Lifton, in his 2003 book, “Superpower Syndrome: America’s Apocalyptic Confrontation with the World”. Therein, Lifton states: “More than merely dominate, the American superpower now seeks to control history. Such cosmic ambition is accompanied by an equally vast sense of entitlement, of special dispensation to pursue its aims.” (p.3) And Mettan’s analysis of Russophobia also underscores the work of University of Chicago Professor John J. Mearsheimer, our leading international relations “realist” in his three Henry L. Stimson lectures at Yale University November 2017: “The Roots of Liberal Hegemony”, “The False Promises of Liberal Hegemony” and “The Case for Restraint”: with his book, “The Great Delusion: Liberal Dreams, International Realities” published in 2018.

But what about “Russian Aggression” in Ukraine & Crimea?

In the first place, it was the astute Mearsheimer, who, in the Sept-Oct 2014 Foreign Affairs, informed us “Why the Ukraine Crisis is the West’s Fault: The Liberal Delusions That Provoked Putin” (pp 77-89), but the American foreign policy establishment, together with ambitious politicians and the me-too media, paid no heed and continues to repeat its fabricated “facts”.

Never-the-less, Mearsheimer is backed up by Richard Sakwa, Professor of Russian and European Politics at the University of Kent. In Sakwa’s book, “Russia Against the Rest: The Post-Cold War Crisis of World Order”, 2017, we turn to the section on “Reality Wars and American Power” on p. 217 to read: “It does indeed seem that Russia and Western elites live in totally different worlds, divided by different epistemological understandings of the nature of contemporary reality. The Ukraine crisis crystallized the profound differences between Russian and Atlanticist understandings of the breakdown and its causes.” And he continues on p. 218: “Elite and policy-maker perceptions and attitudes forged in the Cold War years sustain these legacies and frame the discussions of such crucial issues as NATO enlargement, democracy promotion in the post-Soviet area, and strategic arms talks.” Adding that these “are no longer so much legacies as self-regenerating narratives and modes of discourse that preclude a more open-ended understanding of the dynamics and concerns of Russia today.”

Karl Rove: “We’re an empire now; we create our own reality.”

[In 2004, journalist Ron Suskind wrote in The New York Times magazine that a top White House strategist for President George W. Bush—identified later as Karl Rove, Bush’s Deputy White House Chief of Staff—told him, “We’re an empire now, we create our own reality.”]

Thus, we’ve become trapped in a contrived “reality” promulgated by neo-conservative warriors under cover of neo-liberal “democracy-spreading-humanitarian-interventionists” to justify an American Empire promoting itself as the indispensable “Liberal World Order”. However, under that global order, as Sakwa points out on p. 219: “If a foreign power is considered to have violated ‘international order’, then it can be overthrown” as a rationale for American “regime change” anywhere around the world: whether to control the supply of copper in Chile or oil in Iran. And, with its eye on Russia’s vast oil, gas and other natural resources, America claims the right to threaten Russia by ringing it with weapons which we would not abide were the Russians to place missiles in Mexico…as the Soviets did in Cuba to defend it after our “Bay of Pigs” invasion that brought humanity to the brink of nuclear war. Thus, Russia was defending itself in Ukraine against further NATO expansion while Crimean citizens, by majority vote in a democratic referendum, chose to rejoin Russia as they had been one country ever since Catherine the Great…except for an interval in the '50s when Crimea was” gifted” to Ukraine while they were all members of the Soviet Union.

“Ditching Solzhenitsyn, Defender of Russia”

And not to forget that in 1974, after being expelled from the Soviet Union, Alexandr Solzhenitsyn and his family fled first to Zurich then to Vermont in 1976 and lived on a farm near Cavendish, where he continued to write and publish his work. Meanwhile, Mettan, as a journalist covering events related to Russia, became quite distressed over "the widespread prejudices, cartloads of clichés and systematic anti-Russian biases of most western media." And he went on to say that “the more I traveled, discussed and read, the wider I perceived, the more the gap of incomprehension and ignorance between Western Europe and Russia became evident. 

"That was why, during the 1990s, I was shocked by the way the West treated Solzhenitsyn. For decades, we had published, celebrated, and acclaimed the great writer as bearing the torch of anti-Soviet dissidence. We had praised Solzhenitsyn to the skies as long as he criticized his native country, communist Russia. But as soon as he emigrated, realizing that he preferred to isolate himself in his Vermont retreat to work rather than attending anticommunist conferences, western media and academics began to distance themselves from the great writer.

"The idol no longer matched the image they had built and was becoming a hindrance to their academic and journalistic career plans. And once Solzhenitsyn had left the United States to go back to Russia and defend his humiliated, demoralized motherland that was being sold at auction, raising his voice against the Russian 'Westernizers' and pluralist liberals who denied the interests of Russia to better revel in the troughs of capitalism, he became a marked man, an outdated, senile writer, even though he himself had not changed in the least, denouncing with the same vigor the defects of market totalitarianism as those of communist totalitarianism.

"He was booed, despised, his name was dragged through the mud for his choices, often by the very people who had praised his first fights. Despite that, against all odds, against the most powerful powers that were trying to dissuade him, Solzhenitsyn defended his one and only cause, that of Russia. He was not forgiven for having turned his pen against that West that had welcomed him and felt it was owed eternal gratitude. A dissident today, a dissident wherever truth compelled, such was his motto. This deserves to be remembered." Mettan, pp. 15-16 in “Creating Russophobia”.

Russophobia: akin to Racism

From another perspective: Mettan’s chapter on "German Russophobia" set me thinking that this "Western Supremacy" political-cultural pathology known as Russophobia is like the racism which I knew growing up in totally segregated Oklahoma. Until in high school, I became so perplexed and appalled by the curtain of hate and “justifications” in which we were smothered: the Negro schools on the other side of town? and why were there separate waiting rooms, drinking fountains & restrooms in bus and train stations?...that I began poking holes in the curtain to see what was outside...and found a book in the library: "South of Freedom" by Carl Rowan, an African-American Minneapolis Star Tribune journalist, describing his journey from South to North. So, thanks to what I learned from Rowan, I began to tear the whole damned curtain down...at least in my mind.

Whom the Gods would destroy, they first drive mad?

So, here’s a Swiss journalist punching a hole in this wall of Russophobic Western Supremacy… and through that gaping hole, we are reminded that the Russians are Europe’s neighbors who sacrificed more than 26 million of their own lives to save Europe, America and Russia from the Nazis. These are not poor "niggers" from the Eurasian ghetto we've been trying to club into submission as second-class citizens of “The Liberal World Order” dominated by US; they're nuclear-armed and no longer willing to sit at a separate, inferior table with no vote and no voice over who makes the rules...nor are China, India and Brazil. And last year, while the wave of Russophobic hysteria over alleged “Russian poisoning” was rolling out of the UK and engulfing the Western world in the latest siege of mass madness…with only Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the British Labor party, having the courage to stand up in Parliament on the Ides of March and demand Evidence! only to be pilloried by the mindless politicians and media…led by the once esteemed BBC. And the week following the August 7, 2018 Trump-Putin Helsinki summit, will surely go down in psychiatric circles as another case of mass media-political delusions led by cheer-leader-in-chief, Rachel Maddow of MSNBC.

Meanwhile, not to forget that it was Hearst newspaper propaganda that whipped the American public into a war frenzy to support our first step in empire-building: our 1898 intervention in Cuba’s war for independence from the Spanish Empire which had dominated all of Latin America for 500 years. As the former NYTimes journalist/bureau chief in Istanbul, Berlin & Central America, Stephen Kinzer reminds us in his latest book "The True Flag: Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, and the Birth of American Empire", Twain, Booker T. Washington and even Andrew Carnegie leading a handful of other anti-imperialists...were not able to prevail against Roosevelt with his Rough Riders and the Hearst newspapers’ war propaganda.

Regime Change Comes Home

Never-the-less, after a very long run of American “regime change” abroad leaving a bloody trail of destruction, dictatorships and chaos from Iran in 1953, when we joined with the British to overthrow the democratically-elected President Mohammad Mossadegh to maintain the Brit-US control of its oil…on through Guatemala, Vietnam and Chile…to name a few of our interventions…we were back for a second round with “coalitions of the willing” or not? in the Middle East where our regime-change machine managed to plow its way through Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya…before breaking down in Syria. Until now it’s been brought home again, renovated and renamed “RussiaGate” for another attempt at removing a President for trying to mend US relations with Russia. Though even after more than a year of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigations accompanied by such cinematic support as the movie, “Felt”, another “Watergate” re-run. Did anyone else notice the resemblance between “Felt” and Mueller? And despite the media’s commemoration of its 44-year-old “moment of courage” with the movie “The Post” to promote Trump’s ouster, our democratically-elected President, as of this writing, remains in power. However, in this rush to “regime change”, didn’t the our “ruling elite” read Jane Mayer’s “The Danger of President Pence” in the 10/23/17 New Yorker? At least the 70s' “ruling class” was smart enough to remove an unqualified Vice President Spiro (who?) Agnew…before “regime changing” Nixon and replacing him with the more or less benign Gerald Ford.

A Florentine Epiphany

But back to last January in Florence, Italy, when I was hiking in the hills beyond the Piazzale Michelangelo, with its spectacular view of that Renaissance city and its centerpiece, the Duomo, I came across the Villa Galileo, which had been his last home after his trial as a “heretic”, during which to save himself from torture and execution, he was forced to deny his helio-centric vision and henceforth lived under “villa arrest”, from 1631 until his natural death in 1642. While pondering his fate, I continued walking along the gently rising, ever-narrowing road between ancient stone walls overlooking villas and olive groves until I reached the peak, where I felt as if I were standing on top of the world as I contemplated both the Arno and Ema river valleys far below and where I swear I heard Galileo declare: “The world does not turn on an American axis!”

The 21st Century Inquisition

So how is it that we now have contemporary Inquisitors persecuting so many truth tellers…such as Edward Snowden, our electronic age “Solzhenitsyn?” in Russian exile; Chelsea Manning, imprisoned some 7 years for revealing US brutality in Iraq; Julian Assange confined to his Ecuadorian Embassy exile in London since August 2012; Katharine Gun, a whistleblower attempting to stop the Iraq invasion, who faced 2 years of British imprisonment before her case was dropped; James Risen, former New York Times journalist who was persecuted by our “justice” system for revealing our government’s surveillance of US!

Any Good Sense Left?

So, do we the people have enough good sense & independent thinking left to follow the advice of Henry David Thoreau?

“Let us settle ourselves, and work and wedge our feet downward through the mud and slush of opinion, and prejudice, and tradition, and delusion, and appearance, that alluvion which covers the globe, through Paris and London, through New York and Boston and Concord, through church and state, through poetry and philosophy and religion, till we come to a hard bottom and rocks in place, which we can call reality.”   

“Walden” 1854

If not, the Doctor prescribes Shock Therapy:

For a week, a month, or however long it takes to cleanse and open the mind, one must adhere to strict abstinence from Mainstream Media propaganda, junk news, pseudo analysis, fake photos, TV & videos including absolutely NO phony “for, by & of the people” NPR, PBS, BBC or other Government-funded Neo or LibCon Imperial tranquilizer.

The Woman in the Dunes (Teshigahara, 1964): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 8pm


The 35mm presentations of this Japanese masterpiece (also on April 18th and 22nd) are part of the Big Screen Classics season. Full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
Japanese New Wave director Hiroshi Teshigahara's 1964 allegory on the meaning of freedom and the discovery of identity. An office worker (Eiji Okada) on an entomological holiday spends the night with a widow (Kyoko Kishida), whose shack at the bottom of a sand pit becomes his prison. Gradually he learns to love her and to help her in her endless task of shoveling sand, which the local villagers use to protect themselves from the elements. A bizarre film, distinguished not so much by Kobo Abe's rather obvious screenplay as by Teshigahara's arresting visual style of extreme depth of focus, immaculate detail, and graceful eroticism.

  • Chipotle has announced the Chipotle Challenger Series, an esports competition that will award the winners a year's worth of free food from the restaurant chain.
  • Chipotle will host the amateur competition in partnership with some of the biggest esports events in the country, but it's not clear exactly which games will be included as of yet.
  • Attendees at the DreamHack Dallas and DreamHack Atlanta events will be able to enter the tournaments, and Chipotle will sponsor VIP lounges with free food at several of upcoming events.
  • Visit BusinessInsider.com for more stories.

Chipotle is partnering with one of the biggest esports organizations in the world for a new tournament series starting in May. Gamers will have a chance to win a year's worth of free Chipotle, and the fast-casual restaurant will give away free burritos and Chipotle swag at events across the country.

The Chipotle Challenger Series is designed to give amateur fans at professional gaming events a chance to join the competition and prove their own skills in the world’s most popular games. The series will coincide with DreamHack Dallas from May 31 to June 2 and DreamHack Atlanta from November 15 to November 17.  All DreamHack attendees will be able to register at the event for a chance to win a free year of Chipotle, the Challenger Series trophy, and exclusive apparel.

It's not known which games will be featured as part of the event; the DreamHack events at large are known for hosting fighting game tournaments and competition around titles including "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive." 

“Our partnership with DreamHack allows Chipotle to become even more engrained in the esports community,” Chris Brandt, Chipotle's Chief Marketing Officer said in a statement. “This sponsorship provides the perfect platform to directly engage new and longtime loyal Chipotle fans on-site and online, and we are excited to recognize and reward possible up-and-coming talent in the space.”

Chipotle will also sponsor VIP guest areas at DreamHack and other upcoming esports events. The VIP areas will offer a lounge area for players and esports talent as well as free food. The partnership begins with a Chipotle-sponsored player lounge at ESEA's Rank S Combine at the MGM Grand Las Vegas from April 12 to April 14th. Chipotle will also provide a special VIP guest area at ESL's Intel Extreme Masters event in Chicago later this year.

Because every Progressive Democrat worth their salt has gone on record praising the virtues of “undocumented” immigrants, who they refuse to call “illegal.” How many times have they told us that all immigration is good and more immigration is even better? How many times have they told us that there is no such thing as an illegal human, that there is no distinction between legal and illegal immigration? And if you disagree you are worse than Hitler.

“Everyone is welcome in California”- Gavin Newsome

“We offer a home to immigrants, that’s who we are”- Elizabeth Warren

“Bring these people out of the shadows” –  Kamala Harris

“Immigration is not a security issue…there is no such thing as an illegal human.” – Kirsten Gillibrand

Yet offer to give them what they claim they want and they will accuse you of “dumping” - their word, not the President’s – refugees in their back yard, of using immigrant/refugees as “props” to “punish political enemies.”  Be careful now progs, your slip is showing. I mean, refugees never used to be considered “props used to punish political enemies,” not when Obama targeted small towns to resettle Syrian refugees.

Rural folks in Montana are pushing back against plans by urban elites to plant hundreds of Muslims from the Third World into Helena and Missoula. They plan a protest rally at 10 a.m. Monday in front of the county courthouse in Missoula.

So how, I ask you, can salt of the earth immigrants possibly be used as props? How can sending these cities, run by enlightened progressives, more of the very people they say they welcome with open arms be considered a punishment? Unless, as Obama said, you mean they’re being punished with a baby - or babies as the case may be.

Otherwise I don’t see how you can possible object to President Trump’s offer to resettle these human beings in some of the finest cities in America. It sure seems better than holding them in cages like Obama did, before eventually transferring them to what Progressives consider “hell holes” in flyover America like Podunk Iowa, South Dakota, Montana and Nebraska.

Instead Trump’s refugees will get to enjoy all the privileges of living in  LA, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia and Boston. There they will be able to avail themselves of all the finest medical care public money can buy in their overburdened emergency rooms, enjoy the finest education in their overloaded schools and overwhelm their overtaxed social services system.

I would have to say, well played Mr. President. Even Mr. Alinsky would have to commend your gamesmanship.

“The American people have resoundingly rejected this Administration’s toxic anti-immigrant policies, and Democrats will continue to advance immigration policies that keep us safe and honor our values.”

Checkmate

Have they, Nancy?

Would anyone like to seriously discuss immigration reform now? Maybe, now that MSM even acknowledges we might have a slight problem at the border: 'Breaking point': Mainstream media outlets change their tune on border crisis amid illegal immigration surge.

From Dallas Observer:

Double Dare’s Marc Summers Never Gets Tired of Hearing That He Made Your Childhood Awesome

When people see game show host and television producer Marc Summers outside of their TVs or childhood memories, he says he loves it when they come up to him, politely introduce themselves and tell him that they grew up watching him host Nickelodeon's messy kids' game show Double Dare.

"I get that every day and I love it," Summers says. "Because people grew up with it, the show had a huge influence on so many people and I find it amazing and fantastic."

Double Dare is more than 30 years old, and it's been part of the regular childhood TV diet of several generations of kids. Its multiple spinoffs, like the syndicated Super Sloppy Double Dare and Fox's prime-time version Family Double Dare and the reruns, aired long after the show's final episode. Last year, Nickelodeon brought the show back with Summers and YouTube comedy star turned TV host Liza Koshy for a whole new generation of kids and their parents who fondly remember rooting for contestants as they tried to find a flag in a giant pair of nostrils filled with neon green snot or run up the chocolate-covered slope to get to the bottom of the Sundae Slide.

The show has become such a big hit again that Nickelodeon launched a Double Dare Live tour just like the ones in the ’80s and ’90s. Summers and the game show's sets, props and obstacles are roaming all over the country to give kids and their parents a chance to win cash and prizes in their hometown. Summers' show will be in DFW on Saturday at The Theatre at Grand Prairie.

Summers says he's been trying to get Double Dare back on Nickelodeon for years. However, the tone of the network's non-animated shows shifted from rebellious kid fare like The Adventures of Pete & Pete, Clarissa Explains It All and You Can't Do That on Television to bubblegum pop comedies like iCarly, Big Time Rush and (cue shivers) Fred: The Show.

"I'd been trying to bring it back for 10 years and Nickelodeon wasn't budging on it," Summers says. "Then I saw they started thinking about picking up old shows like Blue's Clues and Clarissa and I just texted the management saying, 'Am I getting the next phone call?' And a few days later, I got an email saying, 'Give us a call.'"

Double Dare first appeared on TV schedules in 1986, starting a 10-year run that lasted long beyond its final episode in reruns. The show also helped bring the first big wave of watchers to Nickelodeon.

Summers, an Indiana native, had worked in Los Angeles as an actor, stand-up comedian and magician since the late 1970s before the network hired him to host the game show that pitted two teams of kids in a 30-minute game of trivia dares and messy physical challenges. Summers' smiling and sportive emcee style, splashy sport jackets and show-starting shouts of "On your mark, get set, go!" made him a perfect fit for the food-flinging game show that still bills itself as the messiest on television. Double Dare became one of the network's first certified hits right out of the starting gate.

"Back in the day when Nickelodeon was putting things together, they did a lot of research and found out that kids didn't have their own game show," Summers says. "They were living vicariously through their parents who were watching The Price is Right. So they decided that kids were already playing Truth or Dare on the playground back in the day and they added the mess and an obstacle course and it turned into what it turned into. Cable was in its infancy and Nick needed something to shout out big, 'Come and watch us!'"

“Cable was in its infancy and Nickelodeon needed something to shout out big, ‘Come and watch us!’ ” — Marc Summers

Double Dare also made Summers an emcee TV star. He scored guest appearances across cable TV and the networks on other game shows, hosted his own talk shows and made guest appearances on late night talk shows.

His infamous appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno next to a notably cranky Burt Reynolds led to a series of verbal jabs about the late movie star's recent divorce and Summers' career before they poured mugs of water on each other and ended the bizarre segment with a pie fight and a hug.

The show's wild success prompted the first live tour to theaters where kids could get up on stage and make a mess for cash and prizes. However, the prizes they offered on the live tour weren't all that impressive, something Summers says he remarked on into his microphone at one of the live shows at which the sponsor was sitting in the audience.

"We would give away trips to Space Camp and on Fox, we were giving away cars and trips to Europe so I would say, 'If you get through obstacle No. 1, you get a box of Blow Pops and if you get through obstacle No. 2, we'll give you tickets to a movie.' And there was a sponsor that I can't name right now but it was a national sponsor who was in the audience and they didn't tell me," Summers says. "I said they would win a $10 gift certificate to this place and I looked down at the audience because I saw the Nickelodeon executives were there and I said, 'Come on, we can do better than this,' and they freaked out."

Summers says he's sure every contestant will be happy with the prizes on his current tour.

"Now we're giving away cash," he says. "People always like money."

The show also gave Summers a long-lasting television career in front of the camera as a host of shows like the long-running food documentary series Unwrapped on the Food Network and behind the camera as a producer on reality shows like Dinner: Impossible and Restaurant: Impossible. He also appears in an upcoming nature documentary series for the Discovery Channel. Summers says his son and daughter have also followed his footsteps into the TV business as a TV producer and editor, respectively.

"I'll be 68 in November, and I always feel like I've never worked a day in my life," Summers says. "I'll keep going and people seem to keep coming and I guess they'll tell me when it's time to stop."

“I'll be 68 in November, and I always feel like I've never worked a day in my life.” — Marc Summers

Nickelodeon celebrated Double Dare's 30th anniversary in 2016 and brought Summers, announcer John Harvey and co-host and production assistant Robin Russo back together for a reunion special. Nickelodeon's new management started to commission reboots of some of the show's most memorable programs, like the sitcom Clarissa Explains It All starring Melissa Joan Hart and All That, which launched the TV comedy career of Saturday Night Live star Kenan Thompson, who is an executive producer of the kids' sketch show revival, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A new Double Dare launched in 2018 that looks and sounds just like the original show, with a theme song that pumps out guitar riffs like a semi-auto confetti cannon and a loud, color-clashing set that the fashion conscious called "cool" in the '80s. Summers says the show reaches two audiences at once now with the lively Koshy as its new host for the YouTube generation and Summers as her co-host for the adults who grew up watching him.

"It was very smart because Liza has 15 or 20 million viewers through YouTube and there's a whole generation who don't know who she is but know who I am and vice versa," Summers says. "She's very open and sweet about taking direction, and very respectful. We’re actually really good friends. She comes to me for advice and it's worked out quite well. Not anybody can just walk in and do a game show even after being trained. It ain’t that easy, but she's incredibly bright and very funny and she picked it up in a nanosecond."

The live tour that was spawned by the show's most recent success picks both kids and adults in the crowd as contestants. Summers says each live show gives him an even more unique opportunity to see how Double Dare has grown over the last 33 years.

"When we raise the curtain and they see the set for the first time, we get a huge scream and people go crazy. And then we reveal the next curtain and the obstacle course comes out," Summers says. "The thing I love about it is even though we're only bringing 60 to 70 people up, everyone walks out feeling good and feeling participatory and involved. It's fascinating."

The tour also gives Summers a chance to meet fans who now span two generations of TV watchers, he says.

"A lot of times, there will be four grown-ups and I'll say, 'Where are the kids?' and they say, 'Oh heck, we left them at home,'" Summers says. "They all have stories about how we built an obstacle course in the living room and how Mom sent me to my room for a week. Everyone has a story and it's fascinating. I'm learning on this tour the impact of this show, and it's truly fascinating to me.

"People will say, 'Oh you probably don't want to hear this.' I do want to hear it. The fact that anybody remembers is great."

The Singular Fortean Society recently reported the following account:

Kane Adams with Fox Valley Ghost Hunters contacted the Singular Fortean Society on Friday to alert them to a bizarre experience he’d had the night before at about 1 a.m.

According to a social media post describing the experience:

So, last night while driving semi, [the weather] was sleet mixture [and it was] about 34 degrees [in temperature]…close to Wittenberg I got freaked out...it was dark outside. I was coming down one of the off ramps to stop for a soda. Something fell out of the sky that was really odd and I can't quite get the image out of my mind.

First off let me say it wasn't a bird or a bat but this thing hit my window and mostly splattered on it. I saw it plain as day stuck to my window. I describe it as a small faerie if you believe in faeries, or possibly, I crap you not, a miniature mothman. It had small wings, [and] again, it wasn't a bat in the snow. It had long stretched out legs that came down below its body and had arms and fingers.

I was wide awake and not drowsy. I was going to take a picture but it slid off the window leaving this massive gooey stain on my window which took several attempts with washer fluid to clean up off the window. I remember it was all black and I didn't see any eyes.

I was overwhelmed by the long legs and arms with small fingers. Those that know me and my team know we don't post false info or tell tales on this site that are not true. I can tell you no trees were overhanging the hwy and no bugs were out in this weather and the stain it left was so intense that it smeared the whole window. I also know what a flying squirrel looks like and it was not that either. It's still imprinted in my eyes.

Size wise 8 inches high by 5 inches wide with wings slightly wider.

Investigator Tobias Wayland was able to speak with Adams via Facebook post and Messenger.

"The wings were the same color as the body. It seemed to have separation in the wings like maybe veins or arteries or bones," Adams said. "Considering the wings were kind of mashed on the windshield it was hard to tell [its wingspan], the body was about four inches with the wings going out further, say, about another four inches per side if it they were not squashed."

Adams said he would have liked to get a photograph, but too many factors aligned to prevent it.

"I was in Shawano County on glare ice and rain in a semi, and not allowed to be on my phone," he said.

It was these same conditions that prevented him from stopping to look for a body.

"I was in a 80,000 pound semi," Adams explained. "I can't just stop and turn around in a sleet storm."

Adams’ post elicited stories from others with similar experiences.

"I saw something at 15 and my friend who was with me saw it as well. We both can remember the moment clearly to this day...and it's been 34 years since that day," commented one person.

"I had a similar [sighting] only smaller in mid-afternoon near Wausau," said another. "It left a real goo on the windshield. This was about 17 years ago and still etched in my memory. My son was like 12 years old at the time and riding with me. He did not see it, only the goo, and was perplexed that it was such an ugly shade of gray."

          Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order: aquí tenemos por fin el emocionante primer tráiler del nuevo juego de Respawn Entertainment      Comment   Translate Page      

Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order: aquí tenemos por fin el emocionante primer tráiler del nuevo juego de Respawn Entertainment#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F2019_04_14%2F234484

Ya está aquí. Tras varios días de esperas e incertidumbres por fin podemos echar un vistazo a Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, el nuevo juego de Respawn Entertainment publicado por Electronic Arts y basado en la franquicia galáctica por excelencia que se ha presentado durante la Star Wars Celebration 2019 que está teniendo lugar ahora mismo en Chicago.

El juego, tal y como había prometido el propio Zampella, no tendrá multijugador de ningún tipo -lo que también excluye, como es evidente, cajas de loot o microtransacciones-, centrándose tan solo en la historia de un joven padawan llamado Cal Kestis -interpretado por el actor Cameron Monaghan, conocido sobre todo por su papel de Jerome/Jeremiah Valeska  en Gotham- que consigue sobrevivir a la temible orden 66 vista en La Venganza de los Sith

La idea del juego no es tanto volver a visitar lugares conocidos, sino expandir el lore de Star Wars con nuevos planetas, nuevos personajes y una historia que se sienta nueva, pese a ambientarse en un momento más o menos conocido por los fans. De ahí que empecemos nuestra historia ocultos en Bracca, un planeta nunca visto con anterioridad y uno de los muchos que visitaremos a lo largo del juego.

No estaremos solos en esta galaxia muy, muy lejana: nuestro protagonista contará con la ayuda de BD1, un simpático robot inspirado en otros icónicos robots de la saga como R2D2 o BB-8 que podremos ir mejorando a lo largo de la aventura.

En cuanto a los antagonistas principales hemos podido ver también a la Segunda Hermana, una Inquisidora de élite -a la que conocerán quienes hayan leído el cómic de Darth Vader escrito por Charles Soule- que forma parte de las fuerzas de la Purga adscritas al Imperio y que se muestran durante breves instantes en el tráiler.

Jfo Reveal Screen Bracca Shipbreakingyard Scope Clean

Siendo Respawn es lógico esperar grandes cosas del combate, y en eso parece estar centrándose el equipo: en crear un juego de acción donde el combate cuerpo a cuerpo, usar nuestro sable de luz y controlar la Fuerza será vital para nuestro éxito. Un detalle importante al respecto, aunque parece que se han guardado cosas sobre la misteriosa procedencia de nuestro sable, es que podremos también mejorarlo a medida que avancemos.

El vídeo presentado durante el día de hoy y encargado sobre todo de presentarnos al protagonista no incluye gameplay de ningún tipo, pero sus responsables han asegurado que está hecho con el motor del juego -Unreal Engine 4-. Una demostración de músculo que, visto el resultado, nos deja con ganas de más.

La fecha de lanzamiento será finalmente, tal y como se había filtrado pocas horas antes, el 15 de noviembre de este mismo año para Xbox One, Playstation 4 y PC.

As airplanes pack travelers into smaller seats with reduced personal space, powering up that laptop can be a risky bet: Will the person in front of you recline their seat?

          Welsh Schools Tackle Period Poverty By Doling Out Tampons And Pads At Schools      Comment   Translate Page      


It's a Saturday! It is beautiful out (at least in Chicago)! And yet, unfortunately for us, all of the news out there today is either about Coachella or extremely depressing. Not very fun for an open thread! And while, you know, I could probably go on for a bit about this gaggy bit from Radar about how Lisa Rinna, Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp are are reportedly "partying down" at Coachella (at least about Lisa Rinna's unfortunate pants), this is a political site and not a "Robyn yells about the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" site (though for the record, Team LVP. Duh.).

Thus, in order to find something nice to end our day on, I had to go across the pond (not literally) for this good news about how schools in Wales are giving out free menstrual products at schools so that anyone who cannot afford them will not have to miss school -- a real thing that happens, unfortunately.


Via BBC:

First Minister Mark Drakeford announced the cash, to be made available to councils immediately, at Welsh Labour conference on Saturday.'

"It's unthinkable that young women could be forced to miss days of their education simply because they can't access or afford period products," said education minister Kirsty Williams.

"We're committed to tackling this inequality in Wales and this funding will help make period products available to learners in all schools, free of charge and in the most dignified way possible."

That is pretty darned awesome. Good for Wales!

Period poverty -- the inability to afford menstrual products -- is a problem for schoolchildren in the US as well. A recent study showed that the problem keeps nearly 1 in 5 girls in the US home during their period, disrupting their education. Unlike food and certain other necessities, menstrual products cannot be purchased with SNAP or WIC. Because they are not classified as medical devices by the IRS (although the FDA does classify them this way), they cannot be paid for out of pre-tax dollars in health savings accounts or flex accounts. This means that there are a hell of a lot of people in this country who cannot afford to buy menstrual products, and that is messed up considering the very large chunk of our population that needs them.

What Wales is doing is great, and it's certainly something we could and should replicate here in America. Hopefully, when our government is less horrible, we will!

And with that, this is now your open thread! Feel free to talk about your periods or how Lisa Rinna is the worst or whatever else your beautiful hearts desire!

Regional qualifiers

Athletes from Inland Northwest colleges and area athletes from other schools who have met the qualifying standards and declared to compete in the NCAA regional competition May 30-31. Conference champions (CC) earn entry without meeting the standards. The 10,000 meters, decathlon and heptathlon are not contested at the regional level, but are filled with athletes who meet either the automatic or provisional qualifying standards. Top-five finishers in individual events and top three relay teams from regionals advance to the NCAA championships. A select number of at-large athletes who didn’t achieve those finishes will fill the national fields, based on the national descending order of performance lists.

          NAILS - release new single!      Comment   Translate Page      
Called the "harshest band in America" by The Guardian, NAILS has returned to unleash their relentless fury once again with the release of a new song, 'I Don't Want To Know You.'

          Guedes disse que é possível reverter decisão 'não muito razoável' de Bolsonaro      Comment   Translate Page      

MARINA DIAS
WASHINGTON, EUA (FOLHAPRESS) - O ministro da Economia, Paulo Guedes, afirmou neste sábado (13) que é possível reverter decisão "não muito razoável" de Jair Bolsonaro e que o presidente deveria estar preocupado com "efeitos políticos" ao interferir nos preços do diesel da Petrobras.

"Acho que o presidente tem muitas virtudes, fez muita coisa acertada e ele já disse que não conhece muito economia. Então se ele, eventualmente, fizer alguma coisa que não seja muito razoável, tenho certeza que conseguimos consertar. Uma conversa conserta tudo", afirmou Guedes em Washington, após participar de reuniões com autoridades no FMI (Fundo Monetário Internacional).

O ministro lembrou que Bolsonaro já disse reiteradas vezes que não conhece muito de economia e admitiu que a ação do Planalto sobre os preços do combustível refletiu de maneira negativa no mercado financeiro.

Segundo o chefe da equipe econômica, a preocupação do presidente pode ter sido a ameaça de uma nova greve dos caminhoneiros, que gerou uma crise de abastecimento no Brasil em maio do ano passado.

"O presidente já disse para vocês que ele não era um especialista em economia, então é possível que alguma coisa tenha acontecido lá. Ele, ao mesmo tempo, é preocupado com efeitos políticos, estavam falando em greve de caminhoneiro, esse tipo de coisa, então é possível que ele esteja tentando manobrar com isso",

Questionado por jornalistas sobre o fato de o governo ter cedido tão rápido à pressão política e à ameaça de uma nova greve de caminhoneiros, Guedes disse que concordava com as preocupações dos repórteres.

Nesta sexta-feira (12), o chefe da equipe econômica de Bolsonaro havia dito, após muita insistência dos jornalistas, que era uma "inferência razoável, aparentemente" dizer que ele não tinha sido avisado por Bolsonaro sobre a decisão do governo de interferir nos preços da Petrobras.

Neste sábado, o ministro voltou a dizer que ainda não conversou com o presidente ou com qualquer outra pessoa de sua equipe sobre o assunto e que precisava se informar sobre o tema antes de dar qualquer declaração.

Ao ser perguntado sobre haver contradição entre a política econômica liberal defendida pelo governo e a intervenção em preços administrados como esta, Guedes sorriu e disse: "não vou dizer isso que você quer que eu diga".

Ele reconheceu que "aparentemente já houve um efeito ruim lá embaixo" após a decisão de interferência por parte do Planalto, mas disse que prefere trabalhar em frentes nas quais consegue construir algo para o futuro.

A Petrobras perdeu R$ 32 bilhões em valor de mercado após a intervenção e Bolsonaro convocou para a próxima semana uma reunião de ministros e técnicos para discutir os preços da estatal -Guedes deve chegar ao Brasil nesta segunda-feira (15).

Formado na Universidade de Chicago, notabilizada por sua tradição econômica liberal, o ministro é a favor da política de livre mercado, com menor intervenção possível.

          The Globes versus SAG versus the Oscars - Best Picture (Updated through 2019)      Comment   Translate Page      
One of my favorite award show wins for Brokeback Mountain as Best Motion Picture - Drama at the 2006 Golden Globes.

One of the major complaints about awards season is that the same films and the same actors are generally feted by the Golden Globes, SAG and the Oscars. Though there are years where the wealth is spread among all three, those years are rare as most are either complete sweeps or one actor/actress/film wins two out of three. 

The Globes, first awarded in 1944 for 1943, are handed out in mid-January. The SAG Awards, first awarded in 1995 for 1994 are handed out in late January. Both build up to the Oscars, which were first handed out in 1928 for 1927 and are currently handed out in late February or early March (but since the eligibility period became based on calendar year in 1935 for 1934, ceremonies have aired as late as mid-April).

Below is a listing of Golden Globe, SAG and Oscar winners for Best Picture (or, in the case of SAG, Best Ensemble -- the unofficial equivalent) since 1994, SAG's inaugural year, with my customary Notes and Other Observations.

Note that the year indicated is the year of eligibility as opposed to the year of the wins themselves.

    15. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri in 2017 (Golden Globe - Drama and SAG)
    16. Green Book (Golden Globe - Musical or Comedy and Oscar)

  • 9 of those 16 pictures won the Globe and the Oscar and 5 of those 16 won SAG and the Oscar while 2 films won the Globe and SAG but not the Oscar.

    • The Artist and Green Book are the only films to win the Golden Globe for a Musical or Comedy and the Oscar.

      • There were two years when the wealth was spread across three films: 
        1. 2006 - Babel (Golden Globe - Drama), Little Miss Sunshine (SAG) and The Departed (Oscar)
        2. 2009 - Avatar (Golden Globe - Drama), Inglorious Bastards (SAG) and The Hurt Locker (Oscar)

        1. 2004 - The Aviator (Golden Globe - Drama), Sideways (Golden Globe - Musical or Comedy and SAG) and Million Dollar Baby (Oscar)
        2. 2010 - The Social Network (Golden Globe - Drama), The Kids Are All Right (Golden Globe - Musical or Comedy), The King's Speech (SAG and Oscar)

        4. 2015 - The Revenant (Golden Globe - Drama), The Martian (Golden Globe - Musical or Comedy), Spotlight (SAG and Oscar)

          • In 1995, the wealth was spread across four films as neither of the Golden Globe winners won at SAG or at the Oscars: Sense and Sensibility (Golden Globe - Drama), Babe (Golden Globe - Musical or Comedy), Apollo 13 (SAG) and Braveheart (Oscar)

          It was another engaging presentation at this month’s CITAG meeting as Joe Hummel presented functional programming and its implementation using F#.  Some times it is fun to attack a mind bending problem and this was one of those times.  Leaning about functional programming caused about the same brain cramps as moving from procedural to object oriented for the first time.  Of course when you start to get it the effect is almost euphoric.  I would suggest that if you haven’t looked into functional programming that you should check out Joe’s information below.

                    Sabathia en labor dominante en su regreso; Yanquis vencen a Medias Blancas      Comment   Translate Page      

          NUEVA YORK. CC Sabathia arrancó su 19na y última campaña en las Grandes Ligas con cinco excelentes innings, el emergente Luke Voit empujó una carrera con un sencillo en el séptimo y los Yanquis de Nueva York vencieron el sábado 4-0 a los Medias Blancas de Chicago.

          Sabathia permitió un solo hit y nadie más se le embasó en su regreso de la lista de lesionados. El dominicano Domingo Germán (3-0) le siguió ponchando a cuatro en dos entradas dominantes.

          José Rondón tuvo el único hit de Chicago en el encuentro, pero el segunda base venezolano también dejó caer un rodado fácil que llenó las bases para Voight. El toletero de Nueva York partió el bate en dos, pero se las arregló para depositar un sencillo al central contra Ryan Burr, para el 1-0. Kyle Higashioka siguió con un elevado de sacrificio a lo profundo del derecho y Tyler Wade empujo otra con un toque.

          Aaron Judge selló el marcador con un jonrón solitario en el octavo.

          Iván Nova (0-2), el abridor dominicano de los Medias Blancas, limitó a los Yanquis a cuatro hits en más de seis entradas. Fue sacado tras permitir un sencillo del venezolano Gleyber Torres abriendo el séptimo.

          Zack Britton y Aroldis Chapman cerraron con un inning perfecto cada uno por los Yanquis, en una actuación refrescante para un bullpen diezmado. Nueva York ha estado arriba en 13 de 14 partidos, pero está apenas 6-8 en la campaña.

          Chicago ha perdido seis de siete y cayó a 4-9.

          Por los Yanquis, el venezolano Torres de 4-1, una anotada.

          Por los Medias Rojas, el venezolano Rondón de 1-1. Los cubanos José Abreu, Yonder Alonso y Yoán Moncada de 3-0. El dominicano Leury García de 4-0 y sus compatriotas Eloy Jiménez y Wellington Castillo de 3-0.

                    La pérdida de periódicos locales está alimentando la polarización política, según un estudio       Comment   Translate Page      

          La pérdida de periódicos locales está alimentando la polarización política, según un estudio #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F2019_04_14%2F280025

          La política estadounidense, y también la europea, está atrapada en un circuito de retroalimentación que refuerza la polarización en el público en general: la cobertura de la polarización en los medios de comunicación aumenta el desagrado de los ciudadanos hacia el partido opuesto, y una nueva investigación muestra que las personas consideran el partidismo como un parte central de su identidad y se esfuerzan para expresarla.

          Además, una de las divisiones más importantes en la política estadounidense es la brecha divina: los votantes religiosos tienden a identificarse y apoyar al Partido Republicano, mientras que los votantes laicos generalmente apoyan al Partido Demócrata.

          No hay duda de que hay muchas razones para el aumento del partidismo, pero en esta investigación, que se basa en datos de votación de todo el país durante un período de cuatro años, se ha evidenciado una importante: el descenso de periódicos locales en el mercado.

          A medida que desaparecen los periódicos locales, los ciudadanos dependen cada vez más de fuentes nacionales de información política, lo que enfatiza la competencia y el conflicto entre las partes. Los periódicos locales, por el contrario, sirven como una fuente central de información compartida, estableciendo una agenda común. Los lectores de los periódicos locales se sienten más unidos a sus comunidades.

          Para analizar esta correlación, se recopilaron datos sobre cierres de periódicos en los Estados Unidos de 2009 a 2012, una época en que se cerraron 110 periódicos.

          Según los investigadores, a medida que los periódicos continúen cerrándose, es probable que esta dinámica empeore. El electorado polarizado continuará yendo hacia medios de comunicación nacionalizados y partidistas, a menos que las noticias locales regresen. Es posible que los periodistas de orientación local tengan que experimentar con nuevos modelos de negocio para sobrevivir. Sino ocurre tal cosa, quizá nuevos medios de comunicación digitales y cuyos algoritmos permitan llegar a segmentos de gente más locales podrían subsanar la brecha en un futuro.

                    WKU CCSJ to host 'Social Justice Salons' presentation April 16      Comment   Translate Page      

          The WKU Center for Citizenship & Social Justice will conclude its spring 2019 “Social Justice Salons” series on Tuesday (April 16) with a presentation by Dr. Andrew Rosa, faculty member in WKU’s African American Studies Program.

          Dr. Rosa will present In the Shadow of Empire: St. Clair Drake and the Struggle Over African Studies in the Cold War from 4 to 5 p.m. Tuesday at Downing Student Union, room 2123.

          During the “Social Justice Salons” series, WKU faculty, staff, students and community members gather and discuss complex contemporary issues surrounding citizenship and social justice. The typical format of “Social Justice Salons” includes a short presentation on a topic, followed by facilitated discussion.

          Dr. Rosa said: “This talk considers the relationship between scholarship and activism by examining the place of the African American social anthropologist and Pan African activist St. Clair Drake in the building of an African Studies program at Roosevelt University in Chicago’s downtown Loop while working on behalf of African freedom struggles at the height of the Cold War. At a time when many African studies programs were dedicated to training African experts for the US Department of State, and when many Americans, in general, were ignorant about African affairs, Roosevelt’s African studies program, under Drake’s direction, established direct links with African nationalist leaders and movements. As a result, Roosevelt’s African Studies program emerged as a unique and important outlet for disseminating information on Africa to the larger American public and mobilizing transnational coalitions in support of African independence. In his rejection of a clear separation between scholarship and activism, school and society, and thinking and doing, Drake crossed multiple boundaries, becoming a model of intellectual activity that remains instructive and useful for our own times.”

          Tuesday’s presentation is open to anyone interested. Refreshments will be provided.

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




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




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

          One of the worst-kept secrets entering the 2018-19 NBA season was that the Los Angeles Lakers had plans to trade at least one of their expiring contracts by the February trade deadline. One of the leading candidates to be dealt was shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. According to The Athletic, general manager Rob Pelinka in late January had a tentative deal in place with the Chicago Bulls for forward Jabari Parker. The deal would have cost the Lakers two players: Caldwell-Pope and Michael Beasley.

          If he wanted to, Eloy Jimenez could've hit home runs in any of the White Sox first 11 games. He chose to delay the gratification for one reason: he's a diva. Eloy waited patiently as the team traveled from Kansas City, to Cleveland, to Chicago, where he played in front of dozens of fans in each city. Finally, on April 12th, 2019, the White Sox arrived in New York City. The stage had been set and Mount Eloy would wait no longer; he erupted with a monstrous 3-for-4 night including 3 RBIs and his 1st AND 2nd career home runs bringing his average up to .319. There were people asking about dropping Eloy in the comments this week (I assume these were all bots). The answer was always: DO NOT DROP ELOY!! I had Eloy ranked 40th overall in the preseason and he slotted in as my #15 outfielder, I'm standing by those rankings.Anyway, here's what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

                    Bird in Running for MVP . . . as Rookie      Comment   Translate Page

          Bird in Running for MVP . . . as Rookie

          Preliminary honors are beginning to pile up for Larry Bird. He was named as the NBA Player of the Week on Monday, and yesterday it was announced that he had also been chosen as the league's Player of the Month for February. His February accomplishments included scoring 28 points a game, shooting 52 percent from the floor, grabbing 10 rebounds and handing out 5 assists a game, shooting 46 percent (13 for 28) on three-point shots and leading the Celtics to a 9-2 record for the month. During February, Bird had four games in which he had 30 or more points, including his season's high of 45 in Phoenix on Feb. 13. He also had games of 33, 32 and 30, and in the only two games in which he did not score at least 20 points he recorded 8 assists in each.



          He's not off to a bad start in March, either. He commenced March activity with his 41-point, four 3-point, 13-rebound gem on Sunday, and last night he continued to roll along by connecting on three more 3-pointers en route to a routine 29-point evening. He has now moved high among the challengers for the league's Most Valuable Player award, which is voted on by the players. Three candidates stand out, the other two being Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (runner-up for the Player of the Month honor) and Julius Erving. Any honest voter should realize that it's currently too close to call, and that ballots should be held
          onto as long as possible, pending March results.

          The NBA Board of Governors will convene tomorrow in Chicago to discuss realignment now that Dallas has been admitted to the league for the 1980-81 season. The two ideas proposed are to switch Cleveland to the Atlantic Division and insert Dallas into the Central Division with its fellow Texans, or to switch Chicago and Milwaukee into the Central and form a new Midwest Division of Utah, Denver, Kansas City and the three Texas entries. Given the geographic realities, this second idea makes far more sense.

          Cedric Maxwell was truly a horse, logging a season's high of 44 minutes played. He battled the aroused Spurs underneath and was particularly outstanding on the boards in the third period . . . Spur coach Bob Bass had spoken of the need to "lay somebody on 'em," and his team responded accordingly. The first half was a cross between a track meet, a rugby scrum and Saturday night in Dodge City, and referees Ed Rush and Hue Hollins did not maintain adequate control . . . The Celtics are now 21-11 on the road, and Fitch had promised the team a dinner on him when they clinched a .500 road record for the season. Well, coachie? . . . "Memoirs of a Hot Dog," the autobiography being compiled by Larry Kenon, received a new chapter last night when Mr. K, the celebrated self-styled "best all-around forward in basketball," shot 0 for 6 in the first half and capped his performance by missing a dunk because he wanted to throw it in backhand instead of straight on. The Celtics took the miss and scored at the other end . . . George Gervin, who had 21 of his 35 points against the Celtics last week in the first quarter, had 16 of his 26 last night in - guess what? - the first quarter . . . The Celtics are on the tube again tonight, when they play the Rockets.

                    4/13 Through the 1920’s: Babe's 1-Hitter; Stuffy Signed; Feds Open; HBD Abel, Mike & Claude      Comment   Translate Page      
          • 1870 - 1B Abel Lizotte was born in Lewiston, Maine. His major league career consisted of seven games played as a Bucco in 1896 with Abel proving to be not very threatening with the stick, going 3-for-29. Lizotte was a 17-year man in the minors, wielding the lumber a lot better on the farm with a .292 lifetime BA while playing for 10 different clubs. He also managed in the minors. 
          • 1883 - C Mike Simon was born in Hayden, Indiana. He was with the Bucs from 1909-13, mainly as a reserve, and hit .244. He jumped to the outlaw Federal League in 1914 and finished his career there, playing two more seasons. Mike spent his last two years in the minors, last playing in 1917. 
          Mike Simon 1909 Pittsburgh Press
          • 1889 - RHP Claude Hendrix was born in Olathe, Kansas. He pitched for the Bucs from 1911-13, with a 42-30/2.71 slash. He jumped to the Federal League in 1914 where he won 45 games in two years for the Chicago club. When the Fed folded, he stayed in the Windy City with the Cubs and won 57 more games with them over five seasons. He got caught up in the backwash of a gambling investigation and his career ended in 1920. Hendrix sold cars in KC for awhile, the moved to Allentown and opened a restaurant, passing away at age 55. 
          • 1914 - The Bucs dropped their opener 2-1 at St. Louis’ Robinson Park as Babe Adams lost his duel to Dan Griner of the Browns, whose pitching, according to the Pittsburgh Press, was “of the airtight variety.” SL manager Miller Huggins, despite the win, liked Pittsburgh, saying that “Fred Clarke has a sweet baseball club this year.” He was proven wrong as the Pirates finished seventh with a 69-85 record. 
          • 1914 - The Pittsburgh Feds and the Brooklyn Tip-Tops played the first game of the short-lived Federal League. The contest was front page news in the papers, a band led a parade from town to Exposition Park, and Mayor William Magee tossed out the first pitch. Tom Seaton of the Tip Tops outdid Carrick native Elmer Knetzer of the Feds, winning 1-0 in 10 innings. The game was played in front of an estimated 10,000 fans. The team became the Pittsburgh Rebels after Rebel Oakes took over the managerial reins from Doc Gessler early in the year, and like their NL counterparts came in seventh with a 64-86 finish. 
          Babe Adams 1916 Famous & Barr
          • 1916 - Babe Adams tossed a one-hit, 4-0, gem against the Cards. The only hit was a generously ruled knock that clanged off 2B Joe Schultz's mitt. Adams won only one more game that season and was sent to the minors in August. The Pirates brought him back again in 1918 after he sat out a season, and he stuck through 1926, winning 48 games between 1919-21. Babe’s last game was on August 11th, 1926 when he was released after leading a player revolt, asking that former manager and current FO suit Fred Clarke, who had been openly critical of manager Bill McKechnie, be banned from the bench in what became known as the “ABC (Adams, Skeeter Bigbee & Max Carey were the ringleaders) Affair.” He would never play another major league game, tho at age 44 his better days were in the rearview mirror. Babe worked 19 years for the Bucs, winning 194 games with a 2.76 ERA and he won three World Series games in 1909. 
          • 1925 - 1B Stuffy McInnis was released by the Boston Braves and signed by the Bucs. He hit .368 in 59 games and played in Pittsburgh’s World Series win over Washington. He was a bench guy the following year, hitting .299 before retiring after 1927. McInnis gained his nickname as a youngster in Boston, where his spectacular fielding brought shouts of "that's the stuff, kid.”

          • 1983 - 1B Steve Pearce was born in Lakeland, Florida. An eighth-round pick in the 2005 draft, he spent bits and pieces of five seasons (2007-11) in Pittsburgh, hitting .232, and was a magnet for nagging injuries. He has since carved out an MLB role in the AL, playing for Baltimore, Tampa Bay, Toronto and Boston. 
          • 1986 - AT&T SportsNet first hit the air as the Pirates Cable Network, operated by TCI. Its first telecast was on that date, featuring a game between the Pirates and Chicago Cubs from Three Rivers Stadium, an 8-0 Bucco win announced by Mike Lange. It didn’t remain so for long. The network rebranded on April 24th as the KBL Entertainment Network to reflect that other sports besides baseball (mainly the Penguins) were to be included in the network. KBL’s first regular broadcast was against the New York Mets in early June. In 1994, it became Prime Sports KBL, then two years later Fox Sports Pittsburgh, followed by Fox Sports Net Pittsburgh and once more as FSN Pittsburgh. That whole Fox thing lasted until 2011, when it became Root Sports. In 2017, it flipped to its current network, AT&T SportsNet. 
          • 1987 - Barry Bonds was featured on the cover of The Sporting News for the story “Blossoming Buc.” Although he was still a couple of seasons away from breaking out, he went on to hit .261 with 25 homers, 99 runs, 59 RBI and 32 stolen sacks in the 1987 campaign. 
          • 1988 - The Pirates took over first place for the first time since 1983 with a convincing 7-0 win over the Phils at TRS. Brian Fisher took a five-hitter into the eighth, with Jim Gott coming on to coax the final four outs while Chico Lind and Spanky LaValliere had five hits between and scored five of the Bucco runs. Sadly, it was a long season, and the Bucs finished in second with 85 wins but far off the pace of the Mets 100-win campaign. Al Pedrique had an unidentified lady fan leap over the railing in the eighth, and she told Al “You’re a good looking guy and I’d like to shake you hand” and that’s what they did, leading to some joshing post-game by his teammates that he didn’t end up with a smooch. Fisher said “Al’s not married and in that situation...you’ve got to get a little peck at least.” Another unwritten rule... 
          • 1996 - Carlos Garcia took Montreal lefty Jeff Fassero deep for the 8,000th home run in Pirate history during a 9-3 Buc win at TRS. His fourth-inning blast opened the floodgates - Jeff King, Jay Bell, and Mark Johnson all went yard after him. Garcia had three hits and Paul Wagner worked seven innings of five-hit shutout ball for the win, although the pen wasn’t exactly efficient in closing it out after him. 
          • 2009 - Zach Duke pitched a four-hit, complete game shutout at PNC Park as the Pirates defeated Houston 7–0 in the home opener. Both the Bucs and the Astros wore Pittsburgh Police hats in honor of three officers who were shot and killed on April 4th. The pre-game ceremonies honored the trio, including a flyover by four Apache helicopters, as well as former pitcher and current broadcaster Steve Blass for his 50th season with the team. Adam LaRoche had three hits, including a homer, and Freddy Sanchez banged out three doubles. 
          Zachster 2009 Topps
          • 2010 - The Pirates flashed some leather to beat the Giants 6-5 at AT&T Park. Paul Maholm hit the ground to snag Aubrey Huff’s ball and in one motion shoveled it and his glove to 1B Jeff Clement to while doing a backflip. The game icer in the bottom of the ninth came when Garrett Jones, at 1B after a double switch, made a diving grab of Pablo Sandoval's liner to end the game after Octavio Dotel had already surrendered two ninth-inning runs. Jones had Kung Fu Panda’s number; he also threw him out at the plate from RF earlier in the game. Every win was precious; the Bucs only had 57 of them that campaign, costing John Russell his job. 
          • 2012 - James McDonald spoiled Matt Cain’s perfect game bid with a sixth inning, two-out solid single to left. He was the only Bucco to reach base in a 5-0 loss as Cain fanned 11 at AT&T Park in San Francisco’s home opener. 
          • 2015 - Josh Harrison became the third Pirate (RJ Reynolds & Billy Cox were the others) to hit a leadoff homer to begin the Home Opener and it set the tone in the Bucs 5-4 win over Detroit at PNC Park. Pedro Alvarez and Corey Hart also went long in the victory. Gerrit Cole got the win and Mark Melancon finished up, although the Shark was touched for three ninth-inning tallies and had the tying run aboard with nobody out before finally nailing it down.

                    Illinois Senate recap: Scott’s Law awareness measure advances      Comment   Translate Page      
          SPRINGFIELD – In light of an increase in accidents and deaths to Illinois State Police troopers, the state Senate on Friday passed a measure to increase awareness of “Scott’s Law,” which requires drivers to slow down and switch lanes when they see flashing emergency lights.

          Senate Bill 947, sponsored by Republican Chapin Rose of Mahomet, passed the Senate unanimously. The bill provides that renewal notices from the secretary of state’s office will advise drivers of how to properly approach a stopped emergency vehicle.

          The bill also requires the driver’s license test to include a question concerning safe driving when approaching authorized emergency vehicles.

          Here’s a quick look at other legislation passed by the Senate on Friday:

          SEXUAL PHOTOS: State Sen. Melinda Bush passed Senate Bill 1507, which would give greater protections to people harmed by having sexual images of them disseminated without their consent. It also applies to the threatened dissemination of those images.

          The bill gives victims a cause of action under specified circumstances. The bill also allows a victim to use a pseudonym or redacted name in court.

          Under the bill, an action for a nonconsensual dissemination may not be brought after four years from the date the dissemination was discovered.

          The bill passed 55-0.

          POTHOLE DATABASE: Sen. Dan McConchie’s Senate Bill 958, which passed the Senate, would create a statewide database for reporting potholes.

          McConchie, of Hawthorn Woods, said Chicago has had such a site for several years and it has been successful in helping the city repair troublesome portions of road.

          The bill instructs the Department of Transportation to create a website on which motorists may report potholes, roadway maintenance issues, and other roadway dangers.

          The reports would be forwarded to the appropriate department district or unit of local government. The bill passed unanimously.

          McConchie also unanimously passed Senate Bill 1090, which requires the attorney general to compile data concerning Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility violations. The information would be posted to the AG’s website.

          FIRST RESPONDER SUICIDE PREVENTION: State Sen. Terry Link’s Senate Bill 730 would create the First Responders Suicide Prevention Act. The bill requires training programs for police to recognize signs of work-related cumulative stress and other related issues that might lead to suicide, and offer appropriate solutions for intervention.

          The bill would also provide that emergency services personnel may refer any person to an employee assistance program or peer support counselor if those services are not available within the agency.

          The bill also provides that minimum in-service training requirements, which a police officer must satisfactorily complete every three years, shall include officer wellness.

          Link said the bill would see further amendments in the House, and it passed 52-0.

          SCHOOL SAFETY: State Sen. Tony Munoz, a Chicago Democrat, advanced Senate Bill 1658, allowing the State Board of Education to award grants to school districts to support school safety and security, subject to appropriations or private donations.

          These grant funds could be used for school security improvements, including professional development, safety-related upgrades to school buildings, equipment, including metal detectors and x-ray machines, and facilities, including school-based health centers.

          The bill also requires ISBE to prioritize the distribution of grants to school districts designated as Tier 1 or Tier 2 under the evidence-based funding formula – or districts that are further from funding adequacy. The bill passed unanimously.

          PROPERTY TAX ABATEMENT: State Sen. Chuck Weaver’s Senate Bill 1042 passed the Senate, allowing home-rule municipalities to abate property taxes for a newly remodeled home located in a blighted area. It passed unanimously.

          OUT-OF-TOWN COMMISSIONER: State Sen. Andy Manar, a Bunker Hill Democrat, passed Senate Bill 756, allowing a township board of trustees with populations less than 500 to appoint a non-resident highway commissioner or to contract with a neighboring township if the district is within a township with no incorporated town and no qualified candidate living in the township steps forward.

          RACIAL IMPACT NOTE: State Sen. Kimberly Lightford, a Maywood Democrat, passed Senate Bill 1485 to create the “Racial Impact Note Act” on legislation, similar to existing notes such as those for financial impact.

          The bill provides that every bill “which has or could have a disparate impact on racial and ethnic minorities,” can have a racial impact note filed by request of a member.

          The note will be a “brief explanatory statement or note that shall include a reliable estimate of the anticipated impact on those racial and ethnic minorities likely to be impacted by the bill.”

          The bill also prohibits racial discrimination and harassment by state officers and employees, and provides that each state officer and employee shall annually complete a racial bias, discrimination and harassment training program approved by the appropriate jurisdictional authority.


                    Illinois House passes bill calling for teaching work ethics in schools      Comment   Translate Page      
          SPRINGFIELD – Public school students in Illinois might have to start learning about work ethics as early as the sixth grade under a bill that passed the state House on Friday.

          Rep. Camille Lilly, a Chicago Democrat, sponsored the bill, which says that beginning in grade 6, “students should be introduced to the importance of developing and applying a work ethic in a variety of contexts.” That includes such concepts as professionalism, trustworthiness, integrity, initiative and respecting authority and arriving on time, according to the bill.

          A number of Republicans opposed the bill, arguing that it would be an unfunded mandate on schools and teachers, and that most teachers were already providing that kind of instruction.

          The legislation, House Bill 2263, passed by a vote of 69- 39. It now moves to the Senate.

          Here’s a look at other bills that passed the House late this week:

                    Trump sanctuary city idea could help migrants stay in U.S.      Comment   Translate Page      

          PHOENIX – An idea floated by President Donald Trump to send immigrants from the border to “sanctuary cities” to exact revenge on Democratic foes could end up doing the migrants a favor by placing them in locations that make it easier to put down roots and stay in the country.

          The plan would put thousands of immigrants in cities that are not only welcoming to them, but also more likely to rebuff federal officials carrying out deportation orders. Many of these locations have more resources to help immigrants make their legal cases to stay in the United States than smaller cities, with some of the nation’s biggest immigration advocacy groups based in places like San Francisco, New York City and Chicago. The downside for the immigrants would be a high cost of living in the cities.

          The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University announced this week that an analysis found that immigrants in sanctuary cities such as New York and Los Angeles are 20% less likely to be arrested out in the community than in cities without such policies.

          “With immigrants being less likely to commit crimes than the U.S. born population, and with sanctuary jurisdictions being safer and more productive than non-sanctuary jurisdictions, the data damns this proposal as a politically motivated stunt that seeks to play politics with peoples’ lives,” said George Gascon, district attorney for San Francisco.

          Trump has grown increasingly frustrated over the situation at the border, where tens of thousands of immigrant families are crossing each month, many to claim asylum. His administration has attempted several efforts to stop the flow and he recently shook up the top ranks of the Department of Homeland Security.

          The idea to ship immigrants to Democratic strongholds was considered twice in recent months, but the White House and Department of Homeland Security said the plan had been rejected. But Trump said Friday he was still considering the idea.

          “Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only,” Trump tweeted. He added that, “The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy – so this should make them very happy!”

          Wilson Romero is an immigrant from Honduras who chose to settle in the San Francisco Bay Area.

          Romero, 27, was separated from his daughter, now 7, by federal authorities at the U.S. border at El Paso, Texas, last year and jailed for three months before being released and making his way to live with his mother in San Jose, California. There he was reunited with his daughter, who attends public kindergarten.

          Romero says he goes about daily errands in public without worry of discrimination. His daughter has made friends and has playdates with the children of Mexican American families. It’s a far cry from his hometown in the violence-plagued outskirts of San Pedro Sula, Honduras, that he fled after his brother-in-law was killed.

          To him, the biggest problem with being in the Bay Area is the high cost of living. The former textile factory worker relies on his mother’s income from waitressing for food and clothing, and he’s started thinking about asking legal permission to move to North Carolina, where an uncle resides and says it’s cheaper to live and work.

          “To tell the truth, it’s a little tight now, financially speaking,” said Romero, a former textile factory worker, who said he doesn’t know of any charities that may be willing to help.

          The plan discussed by Trump would also have financial, logistical and legal issues.

          The transportation of immigrants who are arrested at the border to large and faraway cities would be burdensome and costly at a time when Immigration and Customs Enforcement is already stretched thin, having released over 125,000 immigrants into the country pending their immigration court since Dec. 21. They are currently being released mainly in border states.

          Flights chartered by ICE cost about $7,785 per flight hour, according to the agency, and require multiple staffers, including an in-flight medical professional. The agency also uses commercial flights. Doing longer transports would increase liability for the agency, especially considering that many of the immigrants in its care are families with young children.

          And despite the consideration given to releasing the immigrants on the streets to sanctuary cities, the Trump administration actually has plenty of jail space to detain families. As of April 11, the nation’s three facilities to detain immigrant families were nowhere near capacity, including a Pennsylvania facility housing only nine immigrants.

          It’s also unclear how long the immigrants would stay in these cities because they are required to provide an address to federal authorities – typically of a family member – as a condition of their release.

          “It’s illogical,” said Angela Chan, policy director and senior attorney with the San Francisco-based Asian Law Caucus. “It’s just alarming that they are spending so much effort and so much time to engage in political theater.”

          The Trump administration has long pushed back against cities with sanctuary policies, which generally prohibit local authorities to cooperate with federal immigration police, often by refusing to hold people arrested on local charges past their release date at the request of immigration officers. Over 100 local governments around the country have adopted a variety of these polices

          “New York City will always be the ultimate city of immigrants – the President’s empty threats won’t change that,” New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio said in a statement.

          But Trump seemed ready to step up his fight with the cities, vowing to “give them an unlimited supply” of immigrants from the border.

                    Hamels Helps Cubs Beat Trout-less Angels 5-1      Comment   Translate Page      
          Cole Hamels loves pitching at Wrigley Field.

          No matter what the conditions are.

          Hamels tossed eight sparkling innings, Willson Contreras homered twice and the Chicago Cubs cooled off the short-handed Los Angeles Angels with a 5-1 victory Friday.

          With the wind blowing out at Chicago's iconic ballpark, Anthony Rizzo and David Bote also connected to help Chicago win for the third time in four games on its first homestand of the year. While the Cubs had a solid day at the plate, Hamels limited the Angels to Albert Pujols' second homer and four hits total.

          "Nobody would want to pitch today in their right minds. He's just a competitive guy," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. "He loved coming over here last year. He wants to get back to the World Series and I think all those things you're seeing in a performance like today. Setting a great example for the rest of the group."

          Hamels (2-0) struck out six and walked none while improving to 5-2 with a 2.63 ERA in 12 career starts against the Angels. He also lowered his ERA in 13 starts at Wrigley to 1.61, the best such number for any player with at least 10 starts at the 105-year-old ballpark.

          "There's just a serious comfort zone," Hamels said. "To be able to have the type of crowds that I think I've been fortunate to be able to have with my starts here, even when I was a visiting team, there's tremendous energy and I think that really plays a serious part in what I do."

          The Angels had won six in a row. But they were once again without star center fielder Mike Trout, who missed his second straight game after he strained his right groin during the team's last homestand.

          The two-time AL MVP visited Dr. Steve Yoon in Los Angeles, and general manager Billy Eppler said Trout will be re-evaluated on Sunday — taking him out of the Angels' first trip to Wrigley since 2016.

          Pujols' fourth-inning drive was his 57th homer in 183 career games against Chicago, second only to his 58 longballs against Houston. But the Angels were unable to overcome a rough outing for Tyler Skaggs (1-2), who surrendered three long home runs in his four innings.

          "Other than the home runs, I think he pitched very well, actually," manager Brad Ausmus said. "The Cubs took advantage of a handful of mistakes and made him pay, but outside of those swings of the bat, I thought he was actually good."

          After Kris Bryant singled with one out in the first, Rizzo drove Skaggs' next pitch to the back of bleachers in right. Rizzo's third homer of the season traveled 472 feet, according to Statcast.

          Contreras hit his fourth homer with two down, making it 3-0 with a drive to left that made it to Waveland Avenue.

          "I thought like I was ready to go today," Skaggs said. "Warm-up felt great, but I went out there and got touched up. It happens."

          Bote added his first homer of the season in the fourth, and Contreras went deep again in the sixth. Contreras' second homer of the day also reached the street beyond the wall in left.

          HE'S BACK

          The Cubs paid tribute to Tommy La Stella with a pregame video in his return to Chicago after he was traded to Los Angeles in November. The 30-year-old infielder played for Chicago for four seasons, helping the Cubs win the World Series in 2016.

          "I had a lot of great times here with some really special people, so it's cool to be back and play here," La Stella said.

          La Stella pinch-hit for Skaggs in the fifth inning and lined out to center.

          TRAINER'S ROOM

          Angels: Ausmus said he thought Shohei Ohtani was going to hit off a machine Friday. The 2018 AL Rookie of the Year had Tommy John surgery last October. Ohtani has been taking batting practice for a couple weeks. "It's a baby step up," Ausmus said. The 24-year-old Ohtani isn't expected to pitch this year, but he could return to the Angels' lineup in May.

          Cubs: C Victor Caratini was placed on the 10-day injured list after a CT scan confirmed he broke a bone in his left hand during Thursday night's victory over Pittsburgh. He is scheduled for surgery on Monday and is expected to be sidelined for four to six weeks. C Taylor Davis was recalled from Triple-A Iowa to take his place on the roster. ... LHP Mike Montgomery (mild left lat strain) is scheduled for a bullpen session on Saturday. He likely will need at least one minor league rehab appearance before returning to the Cubs.

          UP NEXT

          Right-handers Chris Stratton and Kyle Hendricks get the ball on Saturday afternoon. Stratton (0-1, 6.48 ERA) picked up a no-decision in his second start for Los Angeles, allowing two runs in four-plus innings in the Angels' 7-2 victory over Texas on Sunday. Hendricks (0-2, 6.48 ERA) struggled in each of his first two outings, yielding 18 hits in 8 1/3 innings.

          Thomas Sowell on the Myths of Economic Inequality.

          Watch this interview at-

          https://youtu.be/mS5WYp5xmvI

          HooverInstitution

          Recorded on November 15, 2018 Thomas Sowell discusses economic inequality, racial inequality, and the myths that have continued to falsely describe the system of poverty among different racial and economic classes. He explains the economic theories behind these pervasive myths and proposes fact-based solutions for seemingly intractable situations. Sowell discusses his early life as a high school dropout and his first full-time job as a Western Union messenger delivering telegrams. He admits to flirting with Marxism in his early twenties as he first tried to grapple with the housing inequality he saw across the neighborhoods of New York City. Marxism, he says, was the only explanation he could find at the time. He went on to serve in the Marine Corps before continuing his education in economics at Harvard and earning a master’s at Columbia and a PhD at the University of Chicago. Sowell’s first job after his receiving his PhD in economics was working for the Department of Labor, and he says it was there that he realized Marxism was not the answer. He argues that the government has its own institutional interests in inequality that cannot be explained through Marxism. He began to be discouraged by Marxism and the government in general and began searching for better economic ideas and solutions (the free market). Robinson and Sowell discuss Sowell’s written works, his ideas of racial and economic inequality, the state of the United States today, and much more.

                    Illinois Senate recap: Scott’s Law awareness measure advances      Comment   Translate Page      
          SPRINGFIELD – In light of an increase in accidents and deaths to Illinois State Police troopers, the state Senate on Friday passed a measure to increase awareness of “Scott’s Law,” which requires drivers to slow down and switch lanes when they see flashing emergency lights.

          Senate Bill 947, sponsored by Republican Chapin Rose of Mahomet, passed the Senate unanimously. The bill provides that renewal notices from the secretary of state’s office will advise drivers of how to properly approach a stopped emergency vehicle.

          The bill also requires the driver’s license test to include a question concerning safe driving when approaching authorized emergency vehicles.

          Here’s a quick look at other legislation passed by the Senate on Friday:

          SEXUAL PHOTOS: State Sen. Melinda Bush passed Senate Bill 1507, which would give greater protections to people harmed by having sexual images of them disseminated without their consent. It also applies to the threatened dissemination of those images.

          The bill gives victims a cause of action under specified circumstances. The bill also allows a victim to use a pseudonym or redacted name in court.

          Under the bill, an action for a nonconsensual dissemination may not be brought after four years from the date the dissemination was discovered.

          The bill passed 55-0.

          POTHOLE DATABASE: Sen. Dan McConchie’s Senate Bill 958, which passed the Senate, would create a statewide database for reporting potholes.

          McConchie, of Hawthorn Woods, said Chicago has had such a site for several years and it has been successful in helping the city repair troublesome portions of road.

          The bill instructs the Department of Transportation to create a website on which motorists may report potholes, roadway maintenance issues, and other roadway dangers.

          The reports would be forwarded to the appropriate department district or unit of local government. The bill passed unanimously.

          McConchie also unanimously passed Senate Bill 1090, which requires the attorney general to compile data concerning Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility violations. The information would be posted to the AG’s website.

          FIRST RESPONDER SUICIDE PREVENTION: State Sen. Terry Link’s Senate Bill 730 would create the First Responders Suicide Prevention Act. The bill requires training programs for police to recognize signs of work-related cumulative stress and other related issues that might lead to suicide, and offer appropriate solutions for intervention.

          The bill would also provide that emergency services personnel may refer any person to an employee assistance program or peer support counselor if those services are not available within the agency.

          The bill also provides that minimum in-service training requirements, which a police officer must satisfactorily complete every three years, shall include officer wellness.

          Link said the bill would see further amendments in the House, and it passed 52-0.

          SCHOOL SAFETY: State Sen. Tony Munoz, a Chicago Democrat, advanced Senate Bill 1658, allowing the State Board of Education to award grants to school districts to support school safety and security, subject to appropriations or private donations.

          These grant funds could be used for school security improvements, including professional development, safety-related upgrades to school buildings, equipment, including metal detectors and x-ray machines, and facilities, including school-based health centers.

          The bill also requires ISBE to prioritize the distribution of grants to school districts designated as Tier 1 or Tier 2 under the evidence-based funding formula – or districts that are further from funding adequacy. The bill passed unanimously.

          PROPERTY TAX ABATEMENT: State Sen. Chuck Weaver’s Senate Bill 1042 passed the Senate, allowing home-rule municipalities to abate property taxes for a newly remodeled home located in a blighted area. It passed unanimously.

          OUT-OF-TOWN COMMISSIONER: State Sen. Andy Manar, a Bunker Hill Democrat, passed Senate Bill 756, allowing a township board of trustees with populations less than 500 to appoint a non-resident highway commissioner or to contract with a neighboring township if the district is within a township with no incorporated town and no qualified candidate living in the township steps forward.

          RACIAL IMPACT NOTE: State Sen. Kimberly Lightford, a Maywood Democrat, passed Senate Bill 1485 to create the “Racial Impact Note Act” on legislation, similar to existing notes such as those for financial impact.

          The bill provides that every bill “which has or could have a disparate impact on racial and ethnic minorities,” can have a racial impact note filed by request of a member.

          The note will be a “brief explanatory statement or note that shall include a reliable estimate of the anticipated impact on those racial and ethnic minorities likely to be impacted by the bill.”

          The bill also prohibits racial discrimination and harassment by state officers and employees, and provides that each state officer and employee shall annually complete a racial bias, discrimination and harassment training program approved by the appropriate jurisdictional authority.


                    Illinois House passes bill calling for teaching work ethics in schools      Comment   Translate Page      
          SPRINGFIELD – Public school students in Illinois might have to start learning about work ethics as early as the sixth grade under a bill that passed the state House on Friday.

          Rep. Camille Lilly, a Chicago Democrat, sponsored the bill, which says that beginning in grade 6, “students should be introduced to the importance of developing and applying a work ethic in a variety of contexts.” That includes such concepts as professionalism, trustworthiness, integrity, initiative and respecting authority and arriving on time, according to the bill.

          A number of Republicans opposed the bill, arguing that it would be an unfunded mandate on schools and teachers, and that most teachers were already providing that kind of instruction.

          The legislation, House Bill 2263, passed by a vote of 69- 39. It now moves to the Senate.

          Here’s a look at other bills that passed the House late this week:

                    Illinois House rejects ‘ban-the-box’ law for college admissions      Comment   Translate Page      
          SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois House on Friday rejected a bill that would have blocked public colleges and universities from asking about a prospective student’s criminal history as part of the application.

          The so-called “ban-the-box” proposal – a reference to questions that appear on many job and college application forms asking people if they have been convicted of a serious crime – was sponsored by state Rep. Mary Flowers, D-Chicago, who argued that the question prevents many people with criminal histories from turning around their lives.

          “These people were a tax burden at one time. They were costing us money,” Flowers said on the House floor. “Now they want to better their lives. They’ve learned from their mistakes. They want to become part of the working class, the middle class, and have an opportunity to go to school. That’s all they’re asking for.”

          Flowers’ proposal, however, came at a time when colleges and universities throughout the country have come under criticism – and under investigation by the U.S. Department of Education – for not doing enough to respond to violent offenses on their campuses, particularly sexual violence.

          As of March 29, according to the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights website, both Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and the University of Illinois – Chicago were under investigation for complaints involving their handling of sexual assault cases. So, too, were Chicago Public Schools and the Waukegan school district.

          “This bill, as it stands, would put convicted felons in cohabitational dorms with 17- and 18-year-old youngsters leaving home for the first time,” said state Rep. Jeff Keicher, R-Sycamore. “While I understand the need to forgive past misdeeds, I need the sponsor to know that situations will come up that warrant additional flexibility in the admissions process as it pertains to violent felons.”

          The House took up the bill on the final day for both chambers of the General Assembly to pass substantive bills and send them to the other chamber.

          Flowers argued that the exact contents of the bill still were being negotiated between the American Civil Liberties Union, which supports the measure, and higher education institutions including the University of Illinois system, which she said had concerns. But she said it was important to pass the bill on to the Senate in order for those negotiations to continue.

          In the end, however, the House rejected the bill by a vote of 40-60. It wasn’t clear whether that would kill the legislation for the 2019 session, however, because lawmakers have a number of procedural moves they can use to resurrect bills later.

          Meanwhile, Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker expressed his support for the concept of a “ban-the-box” law for college admissions during a news conference later in the day.

          “Remember why we talk about things like that sort of legislation. It’s because we want to make sure that those who have paid the price for a crime they’ve committed aren’t punished for the rest of their lives, and that they have an opportunity to get an education and get a job,” Pritzker said.

          When asked about concerns for student safety on campuses, Pritzker said: “We’re going to make sure that we fund our universities well enough and make sure that they have secure situations on campus.”

          Legislation proposing the separation of Chicago from Illinois is intended to spark discussion about the overarching influence of the city in state politics, not actually lead to the creation of the 51st state, according to a central Illinois lawmaker who sponsored the measure. GOP state Rep. C.D. Davidsmeyer, the bill's sponsor, said the proposal would urge U.S. Congress to make the nation's third-largest city its own state, the State Journal-Register reported. "It's more of a frustration of the policies than the true belief that Chicago and Illinois would be better off as separate states," Davidsmeyer said. "I don't believe that...

                    Women With Bigger Butts Give Birth To Smarter Kids: Oxford University      Comment   Translate Page      
          Women with big butts give birth to healthier and more intelligent children, according to a study from Oxford University.
          Women with big butts give birth to healthier and more intelligent children, according to a study from Oxford University.

          According to the study, big butts result in healthy children because of the high amount of Omega 3 fatty acids (the good fatty acids) stored.
          These are the same fatty acids that are responsible for the normal development of the baby’s brain.
          ScienceTimes reports: But according to the Chicago Tribune, scientists had already proved this a long time ago, in 2007 to be precise.
          They noted that women with fat-bottoms are smarter than women with flat-bottoms. Again, the reason is because of the heightened storage of Omega 3 fatty acids, which improves the functionality/development of their brain.
          Evidence shows that the fat content in a mother’s breast milk comes from her lower half of the body, which includes her thighs, buttocks, etc. This means that the high amount of Omega 3’s becomes a part of the baby’s balanced breakfast.
          The high amount of Omega 3 storage could be the reason why fat-bottomed women seem attractive to men, because it becomes an evolutionary way of ensuring successful children. In the words of a common man; the reason why J. Lo seems so hot to men, is because men have a biological imperative to produce intelligent offspring.
          William Lassek from the University of Pittsburgh, is the person who hypothesized this. He even went ahead and published a book titled “Why Women Need Fat.”
          But, having fat-bottoms is not the only way to having intelligent children. There are other factors that play a role in it, such as the overall fitness of your body, and the diet.
          To conclude, stay active, stay healthy, and carry good fat below the waist, and of course, having healthy genetics doesn’t hurt either.

          Pese a conseguir un valioso punto en Ponciano al empatar 0-0 contra los albos, sin duda no sirve de mucho para Técnico Universitario en vista que aún permanece en zona de coleros en la tabla, por esta razón es fundamental ganar ante un rival directo aparte tienen mayor ventaja futbolística ya que han demostrado gran trabajo colectivo pero no han estados finos en la eficacia.

          El volante con llegada, Charles Vélez, andan convencido de salir de este mal momento. “Confiar en nosotros mismos  por ahí si te complica que seis fecha no ha sumado, pero bueno a la parte te da para trabajar duro son cuatro puntos, pero si queremos pelear los Play Off tenemos que empezar a sumar de a tres teniendo que sumar como sea”, sostuvo el profesional al periodista @JavierAranda_91.

          En tanto se refirió al encuentro contra América. “Va ser un contrincante complicado, por ahí ellos también quieren sumar salir de la última tabla de posición y nosotros buscamos queremos sumar los 3 puntos”, remarcó el mediocampista de los albirrojos.

                    El Nacional vs Liga de Quito [EN VIVO] - Domingo 14 de Abril del 2019 - Partido Jornada 09      Comment   Translate Page      
          El Nacional y Liga de Quitose enfrentan en vivo 💻 a partir de las 12:00 horario determinado por la comitiva a efectuarse en el estadio Olímpico Atahualpa continuando la fecha nueve del campeonato ecuatoriano, siendo el juez principal Carlos Orbe con emisión del medio autorizado GolTV.

          El Nacional vs LDU Quito, militares buscan someter a los funebreros en el clásico añejo

          La dura derrotar 3-1 obtenida frente a los camaratas, anda desconcertados en El Nacional en vista que se empieza asomar en la tabla de coleros con apenas cinco unidades sumadas, por esta razón los rojos son conscientes que deben levantar cabeza ante un viejo rival de la ciudad como es LDU Quito. Si bien es cierto llegan como favoritos los albos, no hay duda que en esta clase de compromisos los puros criollos sacan ese carácter que indudablemente nos asegura un duelo muy peleado en la mediacancha pero lo que es seguro que tendremos es muchos goles.

          Por su lado el Rey de copas andan con mucha bronca tras tener una mala racha estas semanas, sabiendo la única salida es empezar a sumar de a tres sobre todo en la Serie A Ecuador, donde se ubican en el casillero diez con doce unidades a siete del líder negriazul, sin duda teniendo muy pocas posibilidades de avanzar a la siguiente ronda de copa, ahora los blancos necesitan enfocarse con todo en el campeonato domestico donde está obligado a recuperar terreno.

          El buen mediocampista, Jefferson Alfredo Intriago, comprende que es un cotejo especial, el cual esperan salir de este incomodo momento. “Siempre los encuentros con ellos ha sido difícil, puede ser un partido para ellos recuperar aire en nuestro caso será una final por la mala racha que estamos teniendo por ende tenemos que esforzarnos. Lo importante del grupo es que no escuchamos nada afuera y esto lo sacamos adelante”, dijo para radio la positiva.

          Para culminar fue en mencionar piensa primero en ellos, no tanto en las ausencias del rival. “Nadie duda de la gran condición que tiene Balda, estamos en una situación que solamente tenemos lo de nosotros independiente del adversario que haga, buscaremos del primer minuto porque esto es Liga de Quito, somos un cuadro que debemos revertir esto por la hinchada y la familia que lo sufre”, puntualizó el atleta nacido en Manabi.

          Gavankar is echter vooral bekend van de de rol van Iden Versio in Star Wars: Battlefront 2. Tijdens het Star Wars Celebration evenement in Chicago onthulde ze per ongeluk aan een fan van Horizon Zero Dawn dat 'de sequel nog dodelijker is'.

          Het hoeft niet te verbazen dat de game een sequel krijgt, gezien het commerciële succes van het eerste deel. Horizon Zero Dawn is immer al meer dan 10 miljoen keer verkocht. Op onze site vind je ook de Horizon Zero Dawn review.

          • Sinaloa cartel chief Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, convicted in New York in February, is awaiting what will almost certainly be a life sentence.
          • In Mexico, cartel violence churns on as cartels jockey to fill the void, and recent incidents suggest the organization he helped build is pursuing its next target.
          • Visit BusinessInsider.com for more stories.

          Former Sinaloa cartel kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is in a Manhattan jail awaiting what will almost certainly be a life sentence in one of the US's most secure prisons.

          Since his capture in early 2016, Mexico's criminal groups have fought on, and the cartel he founded and its rivals now appear to be opening a new phase in their battle for dominance.

                    What the NBA's biggest stars looked like when their careers began      Comment   Translate Page

          • Many of the NBA's biggest stars have grown up right before our eyes.
          • It is easy to forget just how young they were and looked when they entered the NBA.
          • We gathered some then-and-now photos for many of the NBA's biggest stars. 

          It's easy to forget how far some of the league's biggest stars have come.

          LeBron James has dominated the NBA  for 16 years now and is 34, quite different than when he entered the NBA straight out of high school. Stephen Curry, once an undersized, baby-faced guard, is now 31, a seasoned veteran for the Warriors. James Harden once wasn't so...beard-y.

          Take a look at photos of the NBA's biggest stars when their careers began and today.

          • The Trump administration has designed Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard's as a foreign terrorist organization.
          • The potential for a clash between the US and Iran is already on the rise, and the designation only adds to the risk, argue Colin P. Clarke and Ariane Tabatabai.
          • Visit BusinessInsider.com for more stories.

          On Monday, in an unprecedented move, US President Donald Trump’s administration designated Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a foreign terrorist organization.

          The decision wasn’t entirely unjustified: The IRGC creates, trains, funds, arms, and deploys forces with thousands of fighters beyond Iran’s borders. These include local insurgents but also terrorist groups, such as Hezbollah. IRGC-backed forces are responsible for the deaths of hundreds of US service members.

          from Peter J. Wallner of Mlive, The Grand Rapids Griffins qualified for the AHL playoffs Saturday. Now, they have to find a way to get over a monumental late-season collapse. The Griffins continued an incredible slide in a 5-0 loss at Milwaukee, yielding three goals within the opening two minutes in the regular-season finale that nonetheless resulted in a playoff berth. That came about 45 minutes after the game was over, thanks to a Chicago victory over Manitoba. continued

          You will appreciate this one. From the recent article on Frank Hamer in The American Rifleman: Years ago, I knew two old Texas Rangers, Dan Westbrook and Lee Trimble, who had worked with Hamer. On separate occasions they both told me the same story. They said that when the Barrow car started to pull away, Hamer fired two quick shots with his Model 8 and then sat down and lit a Camel. Autopsy photos clearly show two head shots on the pair. While there is no way to document this tale, it is certainly within Hamer’s ability to have made those shots. https://www.americanrifleman.org/articles/2011/9/22/frank-hamer-legendary-lawman/

          ColoComment -- That sunset provision is good. The need for regular renewal of laws against murder, theft, etc would take up a bunch of law-makers time, and reduce their ability to dream up new intrusions on liberty. It might also be good to require that any law has to be read in full to the entire Chamber, with any member who skips out on listening to part of the reading being ineligible to vote on that law. Congress would still be listening to that thousand page Obamacare law! No electronic voting either. Every representative would have to sign his name to the official final copy of the law -- time consuming? Yes, that is the point. There are many steps which could be taken to restore common sense. Perhaps it would be wise to require 60% vote to impose a new law, but only a 40% vote to repeal any law. Give power back to the States by requiring that any law passed by Congress requires concurrence from 2/3 of the States before it goes to the President for approval. Eliminate regulations imposed by unelected agencies -- citizens should be bound only by laws passed by democratically-accountable elected representatives. As for judges -- legislating from the Bench really should in all seriousness be treated as treason; tyranny by Judges is still tyranny. But I know I am dreaming. The only way the Political Class will give up power now is if it is pried from their cold dead fingers.

          Gavin, flogging is good. A day or week in the stocks for a culprit to enjoy public humiliation might also serve well. I suspect that, given the typical overwhelming pride and arrogance of that group, extended humiliation might be more feared by such than temporary infliction of pain. Also, infliction of pain might be deemed unconstitutional under "cruel and unusual," where mere humiliation might not. Dunno 'bout that: lawyers might have to weigh in, eh? I would add one item to that amendment: all laws passed by Congress, and any regulations promulgated pursuant to such laws, shall expire ("sunset"), and shall have no further force or effect, on the "xx"th anniversary of the date of passage, unless renewed inclusive of the same termination provisions by recorded vote(s) taken within 12 months prior to the expiration date, and the vote required for passage of renewal shall be identical to that required for the original legislation. I'm sure the lawyers could tidy and tighten that up nicely, but I believe the gist is there?

          Brian -- Apparently back in the days of the Ancient Greek city states, citizens would vote at the end of a leader's term in office on whether to banish him from the city. While I like your Strongest form, those Ancient Greeks may have something to tell us. More practically, New Mexico used to have a provision in the State Constitution that the Governor could not succeed himself; thus there was never an incumbent in a gubernatorial election. Sadly, the Political Class deep-sixed that provision. That approach of disqualifying an incumbent from running for election may be better than Term Limits. First, an elected representative has a full time job representing his constituents, and should not be spending his time running for office on the citizen's dime. Second, it would make it much harder for anyone to be a career politician, since they would need to find another job at the end of their term of office -- and that can only be good for democracy. It would also be good to see full public financial disclosure from every candidate (including candidate's family) when he runs for office, annually while he is in office, and for 3 years following the end of his term. Death penalty for evasion or corruption -- preferably by public hanging outside the seat of government (to encourage the others).

          Gavin: How about this: Weak form: Term limits for Congressmen/Senators, 18 total years. Stronger form: Term limits, plus Senators are ineligible for serving as President for 10 years after leaving office. Strongest form: Term limits, plus Senators are executed at the end of their term of office.

          This might be a special case of the more general Constitutional Amendment I would like to see put into effect: 1. All laws passed by Congress, and any regulations based on those laws, apply with full force to Members of Congress. 2. The penalty for a Member of Congress who breaks any law or regulation is [much more severe than applies to any non-elected citizen; I favor public flogging, even for jay-walking, but am open to other suggestions]. 3. If any law passed by Congress, or regulation based on such law, is found to conflict in any way with any pre-existing law or regulation, the Members of Congress who voted for that law will be immediately removed from office, be permanently barred from all elected offices, and will be [severely punished - public flogging seems appropriate, but other suggestions are welcome].

          On viewing the highwaymen and Netflix, i’ve always felt that you need to have a streaming device, which I learned about here, and subscribe to Netflix A friend of mine, proud Texan whose family goes back to Sam Houston, says she recently subscribed to a cable network that gives her Netflix. And according to her, all she has to do, they say she wants to watch the highwaymen and boom there it is Being that I am on the bleeding edge of consumer-electronics I don’t know. But traditionally you need a streaming device and subscription to Netflix. All I know is I have watched this movie four times and wished it was on the big screen. If it pisses off the social justice warriors, so much the better.

          Trump sanctuary city idea could help migrants stay in US (ASTRID GALVAN and MORGAN LEE, 4/13/19, AP)

          An idea floated by President Donald Trump to send immigrants from the border to "sanctuary cities" to exact revenge on Democratic foes could end up doing the migrants a favor by placing them in locations that make it easier to put down roots and stay in the country.

          The plan would put thousands of immigrants in cities that are not only welcoming to them, but also more likely to rebuff federal officials carrying out deportation orders. Many of these locations have more resources to help immigrants make their legal cases to stay in the United States than smaller cities, with some of the nation's biggest immigration advocacy groups based in places like San Francisco, New York City and Chicago. The downside for the immigrants would be a high cost of living in the cities.

          The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University announced this week that an analysis found that immigrants in sanctuary cities such as New York and Los Angeles are 20% less likely to be arrested out in the community than in cities without such policies.

          Bring them all.

          I don't know where my dad and his 2 brothers saw the Toranado, but it probably was at the Chicago show when it was first shown. They ordered 3 of them, my uncle's cars were gold (About the only gold cars I ever liked) and my dad's was probably "Laurel Mist" according to a chart I found. Dad admitted after he had it a while, he screwed up and should have gotten something else, color wise. I remember seeing a Target Red one not long after he got it and saying to him, "That's what you should have got!". He wasn't a "red car kind of guy", as he put it, and after the Toro came some truly awful colored cars, like his '68 Bronze with a black vinyl top Imperial, followed in 69 by the awful Avacado green Lincoln MkIII that was traded to my uncle for his '69 Cadillac Sedan De Ville in almost the same awful green. I, on the other hand AM a "red car kind of guy", and i've have had 6 red cars of various shades, and one orange one. I never get tired of, or regret buying red, even though I was looking to go Yellow Jacket on this one.
