          Journalist David Carr As A Father In 'All That You Leave Behind'      Comment   Translate Page      
Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit SCOTT SIMON, HOST: David Carr was an extraordinary reporter, but his best story may have been his own. He battled back from cocaine and crack addiction and a life on the street to become a celebrated columnist at The New York Times and, more crucially, a devoted father. David Carr collapsed in the newsroom one night in 2015 and died at the height of his fame and creative powers at the age of 58, leaving readers and his family in mourning. Erin Lee Carr, documentary filmmaker, has put together a memoir of the father she cherished and her own struggles with some of the same demons he had wrestled. She's called her memoir "All That You Leave Behind." Erin Lee Carr joins us from New York. Thanks so much for being with us. ERIN LEE CARR: Hi. So great to be here. SIMON: If I could, I'd like to begin with that moment in your childhood. I believe you were 8 years old. Your father was going to take you and your friend Alex (ph) to McDonald's. What happened

          21:00 Die Bauhaus-Revolution (2/2) - Film von Claudius Gehr      Comment   Translate Page      
Der zweite Teil befasst sich mit dem Zeitraum von 1933 bis 2019 und erzählt, wie es mit prominenten Bauhäuslern sowie den Bauhaus-Ideen nach 1933 weiterging. Die große Zäsur, die Schließung der Bauhaus-Schule 1933 nach der Machtergreifung der Nationalsozialisten, konnte den Siegeszug dieser Bewegung nicht aufhalten. Im Gegenteil: Viele der führenden Köpfe emigrierten und trugen den Bauhaus-Geist hinaus in die Welt. Die Bauhaus-Idee wurde weltweit zur internationalen Messlatte für gelungene Architektur und Design. Die Dokumentation folgt den Spuren des Bauhauses in den USA, Israel, Japan, Frankreich, Spanien und andernorts. Fachleute erläutern die Bewegung Bauhaus, darunter Wolfgang Holler, Generaldirektor Museen Klassik Stiftung Weimar, Claudia Perren, Direktorin Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau, Annemarie Jaeggi, Direktorin Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin, Martin Mäntele, Leiter HfG-Archiv Ulm, sowie Martino Stierli, Chefkurator am Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.
          NYC may ban pre-hire marijuana tests for many job applicants      Comment   Translate Page      
NEW YORK — Many job-seekers would no longer face tests for marijuana use under legislation that New York City is likely to enact, taking a novel step as lawmakers and employers around the U.S. grapple with workplace policies about pot. The Democrat-led City Council passed a measure Tuesday that would ban pre-employment testing for the drug, with certain exceptions. Supporters say the measure , which if enacted may be the first of its breadth, would knock down a barrier that blocks people […]
          Campaigns Should Welcome Counterintelligence Efforts      Comment   Translate Page      

Back in May 2018, I wrote On Stefan Halper and Carter Page in an effort to settle whether the FBI counterintelligence unit had been justified in keeping tabs on Page during the 2016 campaign. I concluded that they had sufficient cause to enlist Mr. Harper for this job, but I never questioned whether this amounted to spying “on the campaign” of Donald Trump. It just didn’t seem like the right way of framing the matter.

The FBI hadn’t been spying on Page when he first came to their attention in 2013. They had been spying on two Russians: Victor Podobnyy, an SVR Agent whose cover was a job as the Russian Attaché of the Permanent Mission to the United Nations in New York City, and Igor Sporyshev, a SVR Agent whose cover was a job as Trade Representative of the Russian Federation in New York City. The SVR is Russia’s  foreign intelligence service, so it’s the rough equivalent of our CIA. The FBI noticed that Page, a former naval intelligence officer, was interacting with Mr. Podobnyy and had handed him documents. It’s in the nature of intelligence work that when you’re observing the activities of adversarial intelligence agencies, you will discover Americans they have recruited or are attempting to recruit. That doesn’t mean that the FBI was spying on Carter Page when they noticed him make a handoff of documents, and it doesn’t mean that they were spying on him when he went to Moscow on July 7th and 8th, 2016, gave a speech critical of U.S. foreign policy at the New Economic School, and met with high-ranking Kremlin-connected figures.

Page’s actions aroused suspicions because he repeatedly walked right into routine surveillance operations. Mr. Halper, an FBI asset who lived and worked in Cambridge, England was enlisted to make contact with Page and later with George Papadopoulos only after those two gentlemen had contact with Russians officials, intelligence officers and/or assets.  That’s why I don’t wholly disagree with Byron York when he defends Attorney General William Barr’s congressional testimony that the FBI spied on the Trump campaign. In some limited ways, they did monitor the activities of two of the campaign’s foreign policy advisers, both of whom were traveling extensively abroad and meeting with Russians of interest.

But I think it’s highly misleading to suggest that this amounted to an effort to spy on the campaign. In a normal world, this kind of surveillance would be undertaken to protect a campaign. Ordinarily, a campaign would be grateful to learn that someone they were trusting to give them foreign policy advice might have been recruited or compromised by a foreign power.

After Carter Page left the Trump campaign in September 2016, the FBI successfully obtained a warrant that allowed them to look back at communications that Page had conducted during the campaign. Mr. York uses this retroactive element in the warrant to argue that Trump’s campaign was surveilled, but that’s an incredible stretch. To the extent that the campaign was surveilled in real time, it was only through Stefan Halper developing relationships with Page and Papadopolous to assess their intentions and the possibility that they were compromised or acting as agents of a hostile foreign power. In the former case, the FBI was investigating someone the campaign had fired precisely (or ostensibly) because of his connections to Russia. Why would the Trump campaign object to a retroactive look at his activities?

In the case of Page, he had been on their radar already for three years. In the case of Papadapolous, he was clearly being manipulated (at best) in a Russian intelligence operation. At one point, Papadopoulos was wittingly and willingly engaging with a woman he falsely believed to be Vladmir Putin’s niece. Again, this kind of diligence from our counterintelligence team is something a campaign ought to be grateful for rather than something that is seen as a violation of their privacy.

I think Barr was irresponsible when he characterized this as spying on the Trump campaign, although he was careful to note that he was unaware of any inappropriate activities and merely wanted to satisfy himself that the the proper protocols had been followed. I’m not sure I trust him to keep to that, but I don’t see a problem if he wants to take a look at it.

Invisible Theatre concludes its 48th Anniversary Season with the Southwest Premiere of 20TH CENTURY BLUES by Susan Miller. This sharply funny and evocative new play features an all-star cast: Molly McKasson, Susan Baker, ToReeNee Wolf, Geri Hooper Wharam, P.J. Peavy, and Cole Potwardowski and is directed by Susan Claassen with Fred Rodriguez. A reunion. An Argument. A Ted Talk. Emotional mutiny. And a bond that connects four women who meet once a year for a photo shoot, chronicling their changing (and aging) selves as they navigate through love, careers, children, and major world events. But, when these private photographs have the potential to go public in a retrospective at MoMA, their relationships are tested, forcing the women to confront who they are, what they've become, and how they'll deal with whatever lies ahead.

          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 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.”

          The Legal Narrative Funnel That's Being Used To Extradite Assange      Comment   Translate Page      

Authored by Caitlin Johnstone via,

Isn’t it interesting how an Ecuadorian “asylum conditions” technicality, a UK bail technicality, and a US whistleblowing technicality all just so happened to converge in a way that just so happens to look exactly the same as imprisoning a journalist for telling the truth?

Following the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, top UK officials all began simultaneously piping the following exact phrase into public consciousness: “No one is above the law.”

“This goes to show that in the United Kingdom, no one is above the law,” Prime Minister Theresa May told parliament after Assange’s arrest.

“Julian Assange is no hero and no one is above the law,” tweeted Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

“Nearly 7 years after entering the Ecuadorean Embassy, I can confirm Julian Assange is now in police custody and rightly facing justice in the UK. I would like to thank Ecuador for its cooperation and @metpoliceuk for its professionalism. No one is above the law,” tweeted Home Secretary Sajid Javid.

Over and over again that phrase showed up to be unquestioningly re-bleated by the human livestock known as the British press in all their reporting on the Assange case: No one is above the law. No one is above the law. No one is above the law. Something tells me they really want people to know that, with regard to Julian Assange, no one is above the law.

But what is “the law” in this particular case? What they are constantly referring to as “the law” with regard to Assange is in fact nothing more than a combination of ridiculous bureaucratic technicalities which can be (and have been) interpreted very differently, but are now instead being interpreted in a way which just so happens to lead to a truth-telling journalist being locked in a cage, awaiting extradition to the same government which tortured Chelsea Manning.

Now, the US is a Free Democracy™. When you are a Free Democracy™, you can’t just go around imprisoning journalists willy nilly simply for telling the truth about your government. That’s something other countries do, bad countries, the kind of country the US routinely invades in order to help spread Freedom and Democracy™. The US would never do that. But it would diddle a bunch of narratives in such a way that just so happens to achieve exactly the same result.

As we discussed yesterday, the Trump administration’s extradition request is accompanied by criminal charges which are based on the same information which the Obama administration declined to charge Assange for, a point which has been discussed in more detail in a new article by The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald and Micah Lee. The Obama administration looked at the evidence and concluded that there was no way to charge Assange with anything without endangering press freedoms, then the Trump administration looked at literally the exact same evidence and said screw press freedoms, we’re going after him. They wanted to punish Assange and show the world what happens to a journalist who exposes US war crimes, so they changed the narrative to make it happen.

But they couldn’t extradite Assange from the UK if the British government didn’t legally have Assange in custody.

To get around this problem, the UK, which is functionally just a province within the US-centralized empire, used a bail technicality to justify his arrest. After the Swedish government decided to drop its sexual assault investigation without issuing any charges, Assange’s legal team attempted last year to get a British arrest warrant dropped for a bail violation which went into effect when the WikiLeaks founder took political asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy. The judge in that case, Emma Arbuthnot, just happens to be married to former Tory junior Defence Minister and government whip James Arbuthnot, who served as director of Security Intelligence Consultancy SC Strategy Ltd with a former head of MI6. Lady Arbuthnot denied Assange’s request with extreme vitriol, despite his argument that British law does have provisions which allow for the time he’d already served under functional house arrest to count toward far more time than would be served for violating bail. The British government kept police stationed outside the embassy at taxpayers’ expense with orders to arrest Assange on sight.

But they couldn’t arrest Assange as long as he had legal political asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy.

To get around that problem, Ecuador’s new president Lenin Moreno found himself being courted by the US government, meeting with Vice President Mike Pence and reportedly discussing Assange after US Democratic senators petitioned Pence to push for Moreno to revoke political asylum. The New York Times reported last year that in 2017 Paul Manafort met with Moreno and offered to broker a deal where Ecuador could receive debt relief aid in exchange for handing Assange over, and just last month Ecuador ended up receiving a 4.2 billion dollar loan from the Washington-based IMF. And then, lo and behold, we just so happen to see Ecuador justifying the revocation of political asylum under the absurd claim that Assange had violated conditions that were only recently invented, using narratives that were based on wild distortions and outright lies.

In this way a kind of narrative funnel was created, funneling Assange from the embassy to British police on the imaginary narrative that Assange had violated asylum conditions and that he needs to serve time for a bail violation, which in turn allows for Assange to be funneled from the UK into the US on the imaginary narrative that he broke some kind of law by trying to help Chelsea Manning cover her tracks and avoid detection, which is all made possible by the fact that the government of Australia (another province in the US-centralized empire) has refused to provide any protection for its citizen. And the end result just so happens to look the same as what you see when a journalist tries to expose malfeasance in an overtly totalitarian government.

This is called Nice Guy Fascism. With a little narrative manipulation you get to act just like a brutal totalitarian regime and then say it’s not because you’re a brutal totalitarian regime, it’s because you’re deeply deeply concerned about the adherence to a specific interpretation of the bureaucratic technicalities of bail protocol. No one is above the law. No one is above the law. No one is above the law.

They keep saying “No one is above the law,” but what they really mean is “No one is safe from the law.” Our rulers are using Assange to show that they can get anyone who tells the truth about them, even if there are laws and policies in place which ostensibly prohibit that.

Manipulators love the rule of law, because they are able to twist it toward their infernal ends. It’s always possible to squint at laws in such a way that it allows them to be interpreted to the benefit of the powerful, which is why lawyers are often horrible human beings. All the most horrific things that have been done throughout the history of civilization have been carried out not by criminals but by law-abiding citizens, because they were perfectly legal under the ruling governments of that time. Genocide, slavery, torture, the use of the atomic bomb: all perfectly legal and state-sanctioned in their time.

They want you looking at “the rule of law”. They want you fixated on it. But really “the rule of law” is nothing other than a series of mental narratives which are treated as reality by existing power structures. Assange is a prisoner by narrative, because he punched holes in the authorized narratives of the powerful. Whoever controls the narrative controls the world.

           Sagrada Família to Pay Off $41 Million Debt to Barcelona for Building Permits       Comment   Translate Page      

The trustees of Barcelona's historic Sagrada Família have reached an agreement with the city council to pay off $41 million in debt for not having the appropriate building permits. As the New York Times reports, the saga has continued for more than a century, as an original building permit issued in 1885 by Sant Martí de Provençals was no longer valid when the town was absorbed into the city of Barcelona. Designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí in 1882, the Sagrada Família is still under construction 136 years later.

Murdoch-owned paper published front page that Yemeni American Merchants Association says ‘provoked hatred’

A group of New York corner-store owners has announced a boycott on the sale of the New York Post, arguing that the Rupert Murdoch-owned newspaper’s attacks on the congresswoman Ilhan Omar are making Muslim Americans less safe.

On Thursday, the Post published a front page featuring an image of the World Trade Center towers in flames on 11 September 2001 and a quote suggesting that Omar, a Somali American congresswoman from Minnesota who wears a hijab, had minimized the seriousness of the terror attacks in a speech last month.

          NIMBYs By Any Other Name Are Still Progressives      Comment   Translate Page      

I am hereby awarding my 2019 Award for the “Best Use of Alinsky’s Rule #4: "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules" to President Trump. I know it’s still early but the President’s plan to resettle “refugees” in sanctuary cities cannot be topped.

In one short tweet he’s exposed every progressive twit in America, along with all their talking points, for the pack of hypocritical NIMBYs they are.

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.”


Have they, Nancy?

          DC, IDW and Nickelodeon Announce 'Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III' Comic Series [Updated w/ Art]      Comment   Translate Page      
Hot on the heels of announcing Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, an all-new animated movie based on the first volume of Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics, DC, IDW and Nickelodeon and reuniting again Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, a stunning six-issue conclusion to the smash-hit crossover trilogy, released to mark the 80th anniversary of Batman and the 35th anniversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in May 2019! Check out the official press release below for the full details!:


Two of Pop Culture’s Biggest, Most Iconic Brands Team Up in Landmark Anniversary Year

BURBANK, CA and SAN DIEGO, CA – (February 15, 2019) – The 80th anniversary of Batman collides with the 35th anniversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles this May as DC Publishing and IDW Publishing today announced plans for BATMAN/TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES III, a stunning six-issue conclusion to the smash-hit crossover trilogy.

“I still remember the e-mail asking me if I wanted to write the first Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover,” said series writer James Tynion IV. “My brain couldn’t even process what I was reading for a few seconds, and I started having a panic attack about fitting it into my work schedule. Then, finally, I pictured Michelangelo’s reaction to seeing the T. rex in the Batcave for the first time and started laughing out loud.”

“When I got the call asking if I would be interested in doing some covers for a Batman/TMNT crossover,” added Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman, “the ten-year-old Batman fan got up and ran around the room screaming at the top of his lungs with excitement…then the fifty-year-old life-long Batman fan did the same thing!”

Tynion IV (BATMAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK) reunites with artist Freddie E. Williams II (INJUSTICE VS. MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE, HE-MAN/THUNDERCATS) and colorist Jeremy Colwell for this final chapter starring Gotham’s Dark Knight and New York’s Heroes in a Half Shell. Eastman will illustrate variant covers for the series and, as he did in collaboration with Williams II on 2017’s KAMANDI CHALLENGE, contribute interior artwork at a pivotal point in the new run.

“The story for volume three is a blast, and I am having the time of my life illustrating it,” said Williams II. “And lucky for me, I’m not alone in this grand task. I’m having a huge and exciting personal crossover of my own with one of my all-time heroes and favorite artists, Kevin Eastman! Say what? Yup, you heard that right! We’ve got something so fun and exciting planned! I’m geeking out about it every day, and I think all of you will, too!”

“I’m absolutely thrilled to have Kevin Eastman, co-creator of the TMNT, as our creative partner on the series,” continued Tynion IV. “Kevin will be working closely with Freddie, contributing art on part of the run in a really exciting way that I can’t wait for fans to see. We’re going to see Bats and Turtles collide like never before in a story so big, it’s the perfect way to conclude our Batman/TMNT trilogy.”

In the first two blockbuster volumes, our heroes battled the evil of the Foot Clan in Gotham and then went head-to-head with Bane in New York. But now, in the third and biggest chapter, Krang has gotten his hands on the most dangerous technologies in the DC Universe—and no universe is safe from his wrath!

“For the last few years, with the incredible Freddie E. Williams II, I’ve been able to shepherd the meetings of two of pop culture’s biggest, most iconic brands in huge, exciting ways,” said Tynion IV. “We’ve brought Shredder to Gotham leading a riot of mutant Arkham inmates, and we’ve seen Bane bring Venom to the streets of the Turtles’ New York City. But now, on the 80th anniversary of Batman, and the 35th anniversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, we’ve got the biggest, craziest idea ever, one that brings all three volumes full circle to make a real statement about what these characters mean to us.”

“I am so incredibly proud of the series so far,” concluded Eastman. “Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has easily been one of my biggest personal geek-out moments ever, and from what I’ve seen of series III, my advice to fans is to buckle up, things are about to get seriously crazy! Forever grateful that James and Freddie invited me into their backyard to play for a bit.”

Fans of the comic series will see the Dark Knight continue to fight like never before with wall-to-wall ninja action in BATMAN/TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES III beginning May 1, 2019.

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."

Производитель бритв разметил фото блогера Анны О’Брайен в своем аккаунте в Instagram с подписью «Выйди и срази». Go out there and slay the day Glitter + Lazers — Gillette Venus (@GilletteVenus) April 3, 2019 Некоторые пользователи Twitter отметили, что реклама восхваляет ожирение и Gillette «безответственно» продвигает нездоровый образ жизни ради выгоды. Другие пользователи сравнили ожирение с продвижением вредных привычек, таких как курение и алкоголь. «Она живет ярко». В ответ на критику Gillette отметил: «Venus представляет красивых женщин разных форм, размеров и типов кожи, потому что ВСЕ типы красивой кожи заслуживают того, чтобы их показали. Нам нравится Анна, потому что она живет ярко и любит свою кожу, несмотря на „правила“, которые могут ей указывать ей, что ей следует демонстрировать». Представитель Gillette Venus также сказал Ad Age, что компания попросила Анну, у которой 1,7 млн фолловеров в сетях, поделиться своим фото в его каналах. Она не была платным партнером и фото не было создано для Gillette. Агентства также не были в этом задействованы. Эксперты считают, что бренд намеренно вызвал шумиху, зайдя на вызывающую противоречия территорию среди нового поколения покупателей, которые смотрят на бренды, как на продолжение себя. Ранее бренд вызвал дебаты роликом от via Grey New York, которым атаковал «токсичную маскулинность».

          FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE WALNUT COOKIES for PASSOVER      Comment   Translate Page      
These Flourless Chocolate Walnut Cookies are perfect for Passover--or for anyone who's looking for a great Gluten-Free chocolate cookie.

Top pastry chef Francois Payard makes keeping kosher for Passover look easy, offering a range of non-leavened, grain-free desserts for the holiday. As always the quality depends on the cocoa! Thanks, Chef Francois, for the recipe and photo!

Flourless Chocolate Walnut Cookies

Makes about twelve 4-inch cookies

1/2 cup plus 3 Tbsp Dutch-process cocoa powder
3 cups confectioners’ sugar
Pinch of salt
2-3/4 cups walnuts, toasted and roughly chopped
4 large egg whites, at room temperature
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Place racks in upper and bottom thirds of oven and preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

Combine cocoa powder, confectioners’ sugar, salt, and walnuts in bowl of electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Mix on low speed for 1 minute.

With mixer running, slowly add egg whites and vanilla. Mix on medium speed for 3 minutes, until mixture has slightly thickened. Do not overmix or egg whites will thicken too much.

With  2-ounce cookie or ice cream scoop or generous tablespoon, scoop batter onto prepared baking sheet, to make cookies that are 4 inches in diameter. Scoop 5 cookies on each pan, about 3 inches apart so they don’t stick when they spread. If you have extra batter, wait until first batch of cookies is baked before scooping next batch.

Put cookies in oven, and immediately lower temperature to 320°F. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes, or until small thin cracks appear on surface of cookies. Switch pans halfway through baking. Pull  parchment paper with cookies onto wire cooling rack, and let cool completely before removing cookies from paper. Store in airtight container up to 2 days.


François Payard is a third generation pastry chef, who, after honing his skills by his family’s side and in the finest pastry kitchens in France, moved to New York where he was named “Pastry Chef of the Year” by the James Beard Foundation. Francois Payard has won numerous awards, such as the “Ordre du Mérite Agricole” by the French Government in 2004, he became a member of Relais Desserts International in 2006, an association of the 85 best pastry chefs in the world and in 2010 received the Dom Perignon Award of Excellence. 

Not just a chef, François is also the author of the popular cookbooks Bite Size: Elegant Recipes for Entertaining, Simply Sensational Desserts and Chocolate Epiphany: Exceptional Cookies, Cakes, and Confections for Everyone and PAYARD DESSERTS.

          Now Outraged, Trump Boasted On 9/11 That His Building Was Tallest After Attack      Comment   Translate Page      
Trump is expressing outrage now about 9/11 through a controversial attempt to use the tragedy to slam Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), but his grief wasn't quite so obvious right after the terrorist attacks. At the time, Trump gloated that his building at 40 Wall St. had become the tallest in New York City with the collapse of the World Trade Center towers. Not only was the statement appallingly insensitive, but it was also a lie, former Democratic political strategist and CNN political contributor Paul Begala told Chris Cuomo on Friday. "This guy has no moral standing ever to try to use our greatest day of national pain for his political gain," Begala said. He was responding to a video Trump posted Friday on Twitter that juxtaposed comments by Omar, a Muslim, with footage of the 9/11 attacks. Trump tweeted: "WE WILL NEVER FORGET!"

          Blackpink made K-pop history performing at Coachella      Comment   Translate Page      

K-pop has officially rocked Coachella, and the music festival will never be the same.

On Friday, Blackpink, a K-pop girl group comprised of four singers — Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa — made history by becoming the first such group ever to perform at Coachella. The festival has been home to other South Korean acts before, but as the Los Angeles Times pointed out, it's the first time "a K-pop idol group at the height of its powers" took the Coachella stage.

Think of it as a milestone moment for the genre cementing its place in the minds of a U.S. audience.

Fans of the South Korean pop group, called "Blinks," loved every second of the set, and the performance was even live-streamed on a large screen in New York’s Times Square at night. Read more...

Iraqis leading efforts to enrich Arabic Wikipedia (Gilgamesh Nabeel, April 13, 2019, Al Monitor)

Leading enlightenment efforts is not something new to Iraqis, who are the inhabitants of Mesopotamia -- once the cradle of civilization. In ninth-century Baghdad, Abbasid ruler Harun al-Rashid established Bayt al-Hikmah -- the Arabic name for the House of Wisdom -- to house the monumental activity of the translation of Greek and Persian works into Arabic. This institution flourished in the reign of his son al-Ma'mun, making Baghdad the world's biggest hub of science.

"We chose this name for its historical significance," said Rayyis. He added, "That institution was a beacon of science, tolerance and exchange of cultures. The passion for science brought people of different religions and cultures -- all Jews, Muslims, Christians and others -- into one institution altogether."

Rayyis dreams of recreating that atmosphere. "We want to rekindle our people's golden age and join the global civilization," he said.

For Omar Mohammed, a Paris-based Iraqi scholar and creator and administrator of Mosul Eye, translation is such a valuable magical means. "We need it to build a new future -- a future devoid of dictatorship and ignorance," he said.

This project reminded Mohammed of Farah Antoun, a pioneer Tripoli-born enlightenment figure, writer and translator in the 19th century when he translated works into Arabic. "Hearing of Mutar's translation project made me very happy, for the freedom to access knowledge is a way to achieve eternal freedom," said Mohammed.

Upon meeting Mutar in New York this month, Mohammed suggested some books be translated into Arabic.

"Mutar promised to dedicate the project to Mosul University," he said, adding, "We are trying to make the website accessible in Mosul with more contributions from Mosul University scholars."

Currently, the House of Wisdom 2.0 project has a Facebook community of some 84,000 fans.

"We have added more than 900 articles to the Arabic Wikipedia and translated 12 books," said Mutar. He noted, "We lifted the ranking of the Arabic language to the 17th language in Wikipedia from the 19th."

While Arabic is the fourth most spoken language among internet users, only 6% of online content is available in Arabic.

"With our project, the Arabic Wikipedia is ranked 17th, preceded by the Ukrainian Wikipedia," said Rayyis. He added, "There are more than 400 million Arabic speakers, while Ukrainian is spoken by about 35 million people worldwide. We are proud of translating the full English Wikipedia content on biological evolution into Arabic -- more than 500 essays."

What is special about the House of Wisdom 2.0, according to Rayyis, is that it is a nonprofit project. "We translate hundreds of articles every month, voluntarily upload them to the Arabic Wikipedia and make them available to everyone for free," he said.

While concentrating on topics debunking conspiracy theories, topics banned in some Arab countries and content that makes people question more, Mutar emphasizes that they have no agenda other than spreading knowledge.

"We are not a political or anti-religion organization, but we embrace some of these controversial books and content because we believe Arab youth should be allowed to make up their own minds about how they want to live their lives," he said.

The reactions they get are quite encouraging.

"Within a few months, 80,000 fans followed us on Facebook," said Rayyis. "The majority of them are from Iraq, especially Baghdad, Najaf, Mosul and Basra. We have received hundreds of supportive messages so far," Rayyis added.

"It is a forum for those who adore knowledge and want to be part of an enlightened society," wrote Ismail Berwari, a lawyer from Dahuk in Iraqi Kurdistan, advising people to follow the project's page on Facebook.

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 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."

          I cambiamenti climatici stanno modificando le allergie       Comment   Translate Page      

Non per tutti l'arrivo della primavera è una buona notizia. Dopo mesi di pioggia, freddo e alberi spogli, sui rami compaiono le prime foglioline, i boccioli, l'aria si fa ovattata e carica di pollini. E puntualmente, per chi soffre di allergia, arrivano starnuti e nasi gocciolanti. Ma chi ne è immune può davvero sentirsi al riparo?

No. La probabilità di iniziare a soffrire di allergie anche da adulti è alta: “Ogni anno in cui siamo esposti alle allergie abbiamo più probabilità di contrarle”, spiega Kung. È stato così ad esempio per Sonia Jauhar, 44 anni, americana. La donna ha vissuto per quasi tutta la sua vita libera da allergie fino a quando sei anni fa si è trasferita a Long Island, a New York. “I miei occhi iniziarono a lacrimare, mi sentivo sempre assonnata e avevo spesso mal di testa”, ha raccontato a CBS News. “Non riuscivo a capire il perché di questi sintomi mai avuti prima di allora”.

La storia di Sonia Jauhar non è rara. “È l'inevitabile conseguenza dell'esposizione ai pollini, che anno dopo anno ci rende sempre più sensibili a quell'agente”, spiega Neeta Ogden, specialista in allergia e portavoce dell'American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.

"Il cambiamento climatico fa peggiorare le allergie”, sostiene Amiinah Y. Kung, MD, specialista in allergia e immunologia al Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital, a Winfield, negli Usa. “L'inverno non è più rigido come una volta e il caldo arriva prima. Una stagione più calda e più lunga fa sì che le persone possano sviluppare sintomi per la prima volta anche più avanti con l'età. A ciò si aggiunge anche l'inquinamento che ha la sua parte di responsabilità: “Smog e diossido di carbonio interagiscono con il polline, causando un peggioramento dei sintomi”.

Come si riconosce un'allergia? “Innanzitutto dalla durata”, spiega sempre alla CBS Aidan Long, direttrice del reparto di allergia e immunologia del Massachusetts General Hospital e professore associato di medicina alla Scuola di medicina di Harvard. “I sintomi di un'allergia sono gli stessi del raffreddore. Li differenziano febbre e mal di gola, presenti solo nei malanni di stagione, e la durata. Se i sintomi durano più di 10 giorni allora ci si deve insospettire”.

Oltre ai farmaci - perlopiù antistaminici - ci sono delle strategie da mettere in campo per ridurre i fastidi delle allergie. “Il polline raggiunge il picco nel primo pomeriggio. Gli allergici farebbero meglio dunque a uscire di casa al mattino presto o nel tardo pomeriggio e sera”. Il polline inoltre “si deposita sui vestiti quindi fare una bella doccia al rientro a casa e cambiarsi d'abito aiuta molto”.

          Report: Voter Rolls Are Growing Owing To Automatic Voter Registration      Comment   Translate Page      
The United States is almost alone among industrial countries and other democracies in putting most of the onus of registering to vote on individual voters, a sometimes cumbersome process that may explain a large portion of why turnout rates in the U.S. are lower than in many other countries. But the increasing adoption of automatic voter registration over the past five years has led to a big boost in the voter rolls in states that have implemented the new system, according to a new study by the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University Law School. Although programs differ from state to state, automatic voter registration (also known as AVR in voting circles) generally means that eligible citizens are automatically registered to vote when they get a driver's license, register a vehicle or interact with other government agencies, unless the individual opts out. Advocates say this is an effective way to expand the electorate, and the Brennan report appears to back that up. It
          Bipartisan Disapproval Over Trump Administration's Housing Program Cuts      Comment   Translate Page      
Lawmakers told Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson Wednesday that there's little chance Congress will accept the Trump administration's plan to make deep cuts in housing and development programs. The president's 2020 budget calls for eliminating the Community Development Block Grant program, the public housing capital fund and the HOME grant program for more affordable housing, for a one-year savings of more than $7 billion. But these programs are popular among lawmakers, especially local officials who say they desperately need money to help their low-income communities. House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey of New York noted that the administration's new housing budget echoed last year's proposal, which was rejected by Congress on a bipartisan basis. "This year, your proposal contains even deeper cuts and would greatly reduce public housing and end most community development block grants. It would lead to more people struggling to find affordable housing

          Jack Corbin & Meghan Jenkins Release Recording, 'A French Woods Kind Of Love...'      Comment   Translate Page      

Jack Corbin and Meghan Jenkins, who've appeared in assorted shows and showcases in New York, have now made their first recording together--Chip Deffaa's "A French Woods Kind of Love," being released today. The recording, available from CDBaby, iTunes, Amazon, etc., may be ordered here:

Written, arranged, and produced by ASCAP Award-winner Chip Deffaa, the musical sketch "A French Woods Kind of Love," presents--through music and words--the relationship of two teens who've grown close together at summer theater-camp. Deffaa notes: "It's inspired by French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts, which is--along with Stage Door Manor--one of the two best theater camps in the world. The New York Times says they 'set the gold standard for theater camps.'

Jack Corbin actually attends the camp--as have assorted pros who've been in plays I've written and directed, or on recordings I've produced, such as Maxwell Beer and Barrett Foa. A lot of talented people--from Jason Robert Brown to Pasek & Paul--have attended French Woods, run by Ron Schafer and Isaac Baumfeld I've often enjoyed shows there, and friends of mine who've gone there have helped inspire the piece, which I've tailored especially for Jack and Meghan. They're terrifically talented--as good as any singers their age. I'm looking forward to seeing Jack perform the piece 'live' at French Woods this summer, and to seeing Jack and Meghan perform it in cabaret shows in NYC. And when Jack gets too old to attend French Woods, his talented younger brother Luke--who also attends the camp--can perform his version of it."

A one-act mini-musical, "A French Woods Kind of Love" is available for licensing from the Fifi Oscard Agency, Inc., NYC. The recording, being released today as a digital download, will eventually also be made available as part of a physical CD.
:Deffaa is the author of 16 published plays and eight published books, and the producer of 26 albums. For 18 years he covered entertainment, including music and theater, for The New York Post. In his youth, he studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. He is a graduate of Princeton University and a trustee of the Princeton "Tiger" magazine. He wrote and directed such Off-Broadway successes as "George M. Cohan Tonight!" and "One Night with Fanny Brice." His shows have been performed everywhere from London to Edinburgh, to Seoul. He is a longtime stakeholder at the 13th Street Theater, his base in NYC. Deffaa is a member of the Dramatists Guild, the Stage Directors & Choreographers Society, NARAS, and ASCAP. He's won the ASCAP/Deems Taylor Award, the IRNE Award, and a New Jersey Press Association Award.

The music director on "A French Woods Kind of Love" is Richard Danley, who's been Deffaa's music-director of choice for a dozen years. Slau Halatyn. who has recorded most of Deffaa's 26 albums, handled recording, mixing, and mastering. Steve Garrin is Associate Producer. A companion piece, "A Stagedoor Kind of Love"--a recording co-starring Erich Schuett and Olivia Hadad--was released two weeks ago. For more info, please visit::

Gregor Samsa awoke one morning to find that he'd caught the musical theatre bug! Kafka's mystifying and mesmerizing novella comes to musical life onstage. Gregor's rude awakening and metamorphosis parallels the frustrating journey of our dauntless narrator, Franz Kafka, incorporating some of his other major works along the way. Franz's frustrations and the Samsas' surreal situation scramble towards their inevitable conclusion while balancing Kafka's absurdist humor with delicate grace.

Misogyny, check. Xenophobia, check. Traitorous sycophants, check. King Xerxes of Persia sponsors a beauty pageant in order to replace his stubborn wife with a submissive one. The mysterious Esther wins, becoming an undercover bride whose secret mission is to prevent genocide. In risking her life, she inspires the Jewish festival of Purim. Both comedic and poignant, this royal reality show features soul scorching ballads and farcical takes on the adventures of a biblical icon.

Turning the "American Superhero" trope on its ear, two gay men become roommates in "Gotham" adjacent, Jersey City. One, a chubby, 40+ comic book store owner, the other, a wide eyed El Salvadorian immigrant. Together they learn that some super powers aren't that useful, villains aren't always villainous, and sometimes your chosen family of hipsters, drag queens, and real estate agents are the ones who really "save" you. The expenses of NYC, proper use of spandex, coming out to your mother, and rescuing your local beer joint come together in a collection of funny/touching stories with super-catchy songs.

          Jose Altuve, Yuli Gurriel hit grand slams, Astros beat Seattle 10-6      Comment   Translate Page      

SEATTLE – Jose Altuve and Yuli Gurriel hit grand slams and the Houston Astros limited heavy-hitting Seattle by using two starting pitchers in a 10-6 win over the Mariners on Friday night.

Altuve’s career-best fourth straight game with a home run pushed the Astros’ major league-leading winning streak to seven games.

The combination of starter Wade Miley, a former Mariners pitcher, and Brad Peacock (2-0) helped Houston hold down Seattle’s muscular lineup.

But, Tom Murphy managed to extend the Mariners’ major league record home run streak. Seattle has homered in each of its first 16 games, with a ninth-inning solo shot off reliever Chris Devenski.

The Mariners, who entered the game with a six-game winning streak, appeared to be up to the tricks that have helped them to the major league’s best record three weeks into the season, jumping on Miley early. They forced him to throw 41 pitches in the first inning, taking a 1-0 lead on Tim Beckham’s RBI single. Domingo Santana’s two-RBI single extended the lead to 3-0 in the second.

From there, though, Miley tightened things up through the fourth inning, when he was pulled for Peacock. The right-hander began the season as a starter, taking two turns through the rotation before being moved to the bullpen during a stretch in which manager AJ Hinch plans to use four starters due to a fortuitous run of days off.

Miley and Peacock combined to pitch 7 1/3 innings, giving up seven hits with nine strikeouts and two walks. They held the Mariners hitless for four innings, a stretch of 14 batters with just one baserunner, who reached on a walk. Roberto Osuna earned the save.

Seattle starter Wade LeBlanc threw two bad pitches, giving up a double to Josh Reddick, then a two-run homer to George Springer in the third inning, cutting the lead to 3-2. He steadied himself but injured his right oblique while throwing a pitch in the fifth inning and was replaced with two runners on base.

Mariners reliever Shawn Armstrong (0-1) got out of the jam in the fifth in his first appearance of the season following an injury rehab assignment, stranding both runners. He gave up two weak singles to start the sixth, struck out a batter, then watched as Springer’s sharply hit liner bounced out of leaping second baseman Dee Gordon’s glove to load the bases.

Altuve then hit his sixth home run of the season deep to left field. It was the second grand slam of the second baseman’s career.

Gurriel, filling in for injured third baseman Alex Bregman, added four more runs in the eighth with his left-field shot off Ruben Alaniz in his first major league appearance.

Trainer’s room

Bregman was able to sprint full speed in workouts before the game, Hinch said, but remained out of the lineup with the sore hamstring he injured Tuesday night against the New York Yankees. Hinch hopes Bregman will return to the lineup during the three-game trip to Seattle.

Mound moves

Armstrong and Alaniz were added to the major league roster for Friday’s game. Seattle optioned RHPs Matt Festa and Erik Swason to Triple-A Tacoma to make room for the two relievers. The Astros, meanwhile, recalled LHP Reymin Guduan from Triple-A Round Rock following Wednesday night’s game and optioned LHP Framber Valdez to make room on the roster.

Up next

Astros: RHP Justin Verlander (1-0, 4.24) has a 12-9 career record against the Mariners, but was beat up in his last appearance against Seattle, giving up six runs and seven hits in two innings last August in Houston.

Mariners: RHP Felix Hernandez (1-0, 4.26) returns to the mound after being pulled following one inning Monday at the Kansas City Royals. Hernandez came out of the game with virus-like symptoms after giving up two runs on three hits.

          Out of Right Field: Recap, takeaways from the Mariners’ 10-6 loss to the Houston Astros      Comment   Translate Page      

Jose Altuve and Yuli Gurriel hit grand slams as the Houston Astros defeated the host Mariners 10-6 Friday night, snapping Seattle’s six-game winning streak.

It was the fourth consecutive game in which Altuve has gone deep, with five home runs over that span.

George Springer also homered for the Astros, who rallied from a 3-0 deficit through two innings to extend their winning streak to seven games.

Houston’s Brad Peacock (2-0) pitched 3 1/3 innings of one-hit relief, with seven strikeouts, to get the victory.

Of note

RHP Shawn Armstrong returned from a rehabilitation assignment at Triple-A Tacoma after starting the season on the 10-day injured list with a left oblique strain and ended up allowing the grand slam to Altuve and took the loss. The M’s also recalled RHP Ruben Alaniz from the Rainiers and sent RHPs Matt Festa and Erik Swanson to Tacoma. … Astros 3B Alex Bregman, who has been out since injuring his right hamstring Tuesday against the New York Yankees, is “trending toward” a return Saturday, manager AJ Hinch told

By the numbers

16: Catcher Tom Murphy hit a solo homer in the ninth inning to extend the Mariners’ major-league record of consecutive games with a home run to start a season.

Our take from right field

Houston took a page out of the Mariners’ playbook, with all 10 of its runs scoring via the long ball – a pair of grand slams and a two-run shot. The move to call up right-handers Shawn Armstrong and R.J. Alaniz from Triple-A Tacoma backfired, with both giving up grand slams.

Up next

The M’s continue their three-game series with the Astros as RHP Felix Hernandez (1-0, 4.26 ERA) is scheduled to face Astros RHP Justin Verlander (1-0, 4.24). Game time is 6:10 p.m. at T-Mobile Park.

          The name isn’t as important as the title for Ron Stone Jr. in quest to be starting “Rush” LB at Washington State      Comment   Translate Page      

PULLMAN – Everything considered, it’s a pretty trivial matter. But since Washington State’s redshirt freshman “Rush” linebacker could see some real playing time in the near future, we might as well settle the debate now, if only to make it easier on the broadcasters who’ll be calling his name and the journalists who’ll be printing it.

R.J. Stone or Ron Stone Jr.?

It’s a fair question for the second-year Cougar because the evidence is conflicting: WSU lists “Ron Stone Jr.” on its official roster, but the player’s Twitter handle, “@Rj__Stone” indicates his fanbase – a group that could grow substantially this season – should call him the opposite.

So, the official verdict?

“I mean either/or works,” Stone Jr. said when asked to clear the confusion. “I’ve gone by R.J. my whole life, but kind of like my senior year and once I first got to college is when I’ve taken that step as Ron.”

That prompts the next most obvious question: How did R.J. become Ron?

Once football began to take a more prominent role in Stone’s life, he decided to make the switch, reverting to the birth name he adopted from his father – an ode to his first coach and mentor in the sport.

“I was named after my dad and that’s kind of one of the main reasons I started playing football,” Stone said. “Kind of a tribute to him a little bit and just showing I can do it, too.”

Ron Stone Sr. was a 13-year NFL veteran who had stops in Dallas, New York (Giants), Oakland and San Francisco. An offensive lineman who battled a spate of injuries throughout his career, Stone Sr. made three Pro Bowl appearances, two All-Pro teams and won a pair of Super Bowls – XXVII and XXX – with the Cowboys in the mid-1990s.

The memories are faint, but Stone Jr. still recalls sitting in club-level seats at the Oakland Coliseum and watching the tail end of his father’s pro career. Stone Sr. retired in 2006 after two seasons with the Raiders and kept his family close by in the Bay Area.

“Growing up, I used to go to a couple of his games when he was at the Raiders,” Stone Jr. said. “And a couple of the other teams, I don’t remember as well.”

It was a stop-and-go lifestyle for the Stones hopping from one city to the next, but the time Ron Jr. spent around the game was invaluable. When Ron Sr’s NFL career died down, he coached his son at the Pop Warner level all the way through to high school. Ron Sr. is still the offensive line coach at Valley Christian, where Ron Jr. was an All-Metro first-team selection as a senior and the West Catholic League’s Most Valuable Defensive Lineman.

“It’s kind of developed me as a football player knowing I get my dad as a coach,” said Stone Jr., whose sisters, aptly named Ronna and Ronika, are student-athletes at Oregon. “He went all the way to that top level, so there’s no better coaching you can get from that.”

He may be indifferent to what you call him, but Stone Jr. eventually wants to be known as WSU’s starting “Rush” linebacker. He’s in the thick of a competition with two returning players, Willie Taylor III and Dominick Silvels, who were essentially 1A and 1B at that position last year. So winning a job is no simple task.

Here’s what Stone Jr. thinks it’ll take: “Just effort in the individual drills and one-on-ones. Just winning all your drills. All the things you can do best, doing the best you can do. Just kind of set yourself apart individually.”

Even with vastly more experience than their younger position mate, Silvels and Taylor III know Stone Jr. is making a push – and a strong one – this spring. He had a touch sack in Saturday’s scrimmage and has worked occasionally with the No. 1 defense during Thursday’s 10th spring practice in Pullman.

“He’s competing, it’s all three of us competing right now,” Taylor III said. “We can all play. He’s good, needs to learn more. For me playing last year, I’ve been able to help him out a little bit. It’s been pretty good.”

It’s simple: Stone Jr. wants to make a name for himself at WSU. As long as “Stone Jr.” is the last name on the depth chart, the first name preceding it is unimportant.

“Everyone wants to play. Everyone wants to win, so it’s going to give us all that extra drive because there’s so few of us,” he said. “Two, three, we can all play, but that starting spot’s what everyone’s going for, so it’s really competitive and we’re all looking forward to it.”

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.

          New York mom fined after pulling over to breastfeed      Comment   Translate Page      
A New York mother is fighting a parking ticket she was given after she pulled over to breastfeed her baby. The woman said she was fined $115 for stopping in a commercial area. CBS New York's Ali Bauman reports.

          The current Yankees are a tomato can      Comment   Translate Page      
Last night, in a confluence of crapola and karma, Brian "Cooperstown" Cashman happened to be talking to the media as the game was called - his fully-operational Death Star losing yet another. The Yankee brain trust chalked up the latest monstrosity to bad "mojo," too cowardly to utter the real word, "juju." 

Cashman tossed the following word salad: 

“We have people who are capable, it is just a combination of, yes, are we hurt? We are are hurt, but we are still capable. But we have a lot of poor play going on simultaneously on the current active roster.”

Translation: Hummina-hummina-hummina.

What Cashman overlooked was the Yankees' winter strategy of pursuing cheap knock-offs to expensive merchandise. While the 36-year-old J.A. Happ was being pummeled by the lowly Chisox, Patrick Corbin was pitching for the Washington Nats. Corbin held the Pirates to one run in seven innings, lowering his spring ERA to 2.84. Corbin, a native of North Syracuse, wanted to be a Yankee. All winter, that was the word around Central New York: the Yankees merely had to make him a decent offer, and he would sign. And the franchise could draw upon a virtually limitless mountain of private and public cash, finagled by corrupt politicos and the simple magnitude of billionaire wealth. It would simply be a few more gold coins on a bubbling volcano of money so vast it can only be seen with a telescope on Mars. But the Yankees went cheap. They went cheap because they wanted to be cheap. And last night, cheap is what we saw. 

Hey, it's almost Easter: Cheap, cheap, cheap...

Of course, it's still early. That's what they say. It's only April. A 20-game winning streak will change everything. And yes, this team has faced a Biblical rain of locusts, snakes and tweaked gonadal sacs. So horrifying are the injury reports that, any day now, I expect to hear that Aaron Judge stepped on a crack, broke his mother's back, and will miss a month. But last night's loss wasn't just a case of poor play. What we saw was a flat-out lousy team. Aside from Judge, here is what we sent out:

A career minor leaguer at 3B, an unknown commodity at DH, a career-back up at C, a slap-hitting 2B, a 2B playing SS, a LF playing CF, a disappointment at 1B, a mystery in LF, an aging starter in his career twilight, a bullpen in distress and a manager known for his easy-going style.

Boston is creeping up on us. At this rate, they'll overtake us next week, in our own stadium - just like last year. 

Listen: Cashman is right; it's a long season. But April might not be a mere bump in the road. We're seeing what we designed, with a little bad juju. We may be facing a meltdown season. Hummina-hummina-hummina.

          Las rimas de la muerte: 69 raperos han sido asesinados en EEUU en los últimos 30 años      Comment   Translate Page      

En algunos aspectos el rap y la violencia parecen ir de la mano. Pero no es la música en sí misma, es el entorno en el que vivimos. La violencia estaba aquí mucho antes que el hip-hop, decía Scotty Morris a 'The New York Times' en 1987. Morris era el mánager de Scott La Rock, integrante del dúo Boogie Down Productions que fue asesinado por disparos en el cuello y la cabeza en agosto de aquel año en el Bronx. Scott La Rock tenía 25 años y su muerte, según la revista especializada 'XXL', supuso la pérdida de la inocencia de un estilo musical que nació en ese mismo barrio neoyorquino en la década anterior, cuando DJ Kool Herc lo puso en el mapa al estrenar el breakbeat en 1973.

          New York Press Club to honor CNN's Jim Acosta with 'Truth to Power' award      Comment   Translate Page      

CNN's Jim Acosta was family booted from the White House press corps, and almost as famously returned to it, after fighting for the microphone and refusing to stop talking when he was directing remarks to President Trump last year.

The hallmark of Acosta's reporting, and indeed career, is as a person who battles Trump from the left, rather than as a reporter or uncoverer of truth in his own right.

Acosta's style - a sort of preachy monologue as opposed to traditional question and answer - doesn't sit will with a lot of conservative viewers, and he's faced a good deal of criticism over it, especially at Trump's rallies.

It is presumably on those grounds, his provocateur milieu, on which the New York Press club has decided to award him their "Truth to Power" award at their upcoming awards dinner.

For a refresher in how Acosta's job as Trump foil has sky-rocketed his career, you can do worse than to read this explainer from last year at the Daily Wire. But if you want a more recent example, Glenn Beck's biting commentary here is a must.

In the press release announcing his selection, the NYPC said the purpose of the award, which is named for journalist Gabe Pressman, is designed to honor ""an individual whose body of work challenges the power establishment and/or defends journalists."

Perhaps it is meant specifically with regard to the incident with the White House revoking his credentials, against which Fox News joined all the other press organizations in protest, as opposed to his more general job of simply launching social-media quality liberal talking points at any conservative or republican unfortunate enough to be in front of his mic.

          Shocking ruling from liberal 9th Circuit Court hands President Trump huge immigration victory      Comment   Translate Page      

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which has traditionally ruled against the Trump administration, handed President Donald Trump a rare immigration victory Friday night.

What are the details?

The appeals court issued a stay against a lower court decision — which came just four days earlier — that blocked the Trump administration from enforcing a policy that forced migrants to wait in Mexico while U.S. authorities processed their asylum requests.

However, the stay was only temporary. The court will consider extending the stay sometime next week, according to the New York Times.

The court gave civil liberty groups until Tuesday to submit arguments for why the policy should be overthrown, while giving the Justice Department until Wednesday to submit arguments for why the policy should remain in place.

What's the background?

On Monday, Federal District Court Judge Richard Seeborg granted an injunction against the Trump administration's policy. Seeborg claimed the policy violated existing immigration law. He also claimed the president did not have the power to enforce the policy.

Seeborg's injunction was set to go into effect Friday, which explains the emergency stay from the 9th Circuit.

In December, the Trump administration rolled out a new policy that forced migrants who entered the U.S. illegally to wait in Mexico while U.S. authorities processed their asylum requests.

The policy sought to end the controversial practice of so-called "catch and release," where non-criminal migrants would essentially be released into the general population while courts decided their asylum requests.

The world could transition entirely to cheap, safe renewable energy before 2050: Finnish study

Solar Panels

A study from the Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and the Energy Watch Group (EWG) from Germany says a global transition to the exclusive use of renewable energy is possible before 2050. (iStock) 

A global transition to the exclusive use of renewable energy sources is not only possible but also cheaper and safer than reliance on fossil fuels and nuclear energy, according to a new study from the Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and the Energy Watch Group (EWG) from Germany.

The study claims that the rapid development of renewable energy sources and energy storage technology will likely make it possible for the entire planet to reduce its CO2 emissions to zero even earlier than the current 2050 deadline.

The report is the first of its kind to suggest a cost-effective, all-inclusive, global roadmap to keep average global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius. It is also the first planet-wide climate change resistance plan that suggests not using carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) techniques to mechanically remove CO2 from the atmosphere.

According to the model, in 2050 some 69 percent of the world’s energy would come from solar panels, 18 percent from wind power, 3 percent from hydropower systems and 6 percent from bioenergy.

Fossil fuels and nuclear power would not be needed at all. Cars, planes and ships would run on carbon-neutral synthetic fuels produced from hydrogen and carbon dioxide.

375.00 CAD

Date: 1988
Size: 20 x 27.5 inches
Artist: Steinberg, Saul

Saul Steinberg (1914-1999) was one of America’s most beloved artists, renowned for the covers and drawings that appeared in The New Yorker for nearly six decades and for the drawings, paintings, prints, collages, and sculptures exhibited internationally in galleries and museums. Steinberg’s art, equally at home on magazine pages and gallery walls, cannot be confined to a single category or movement.

His art is about the ways artists make art. Steinberg did not represent what he saw; rather, he depicted people, places, and even numbers or words in styles borrowed from other art, high and low, past and present. In his pictorial imagination, the very artifice of style, of images already processed through art, became the means to explore social and political systems, human foibles, geography, architecture, language and, of course, art itself.

          Meet Me at the Theater, Because a Sleepless in Seattle Musical Is Happening      Comment   Translate Page      


Over 20 years after Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan's onscreen love affair in Sleepless in Seattle left us all swooning, the popular love story is making its way back to a different kind of theater. According to Forbes, the 1993 rom-com is being made into a musical as we speak.

Forbes reported that the show's producers, Michael Rose and David Shor, have already obtained the rights to adapt the screenplay into a musical for which musicians Robert Scott and Brendan Cull will write the music, while Michael Burdette will work on the script. Shor and Rose are working to get the show off the ground in London's West End before the end of the year.

"We are in discussions with the three or four primary theater owners," Shor said. He also noted that an official debut date mostly "depends on schedules" and the results of the Olivier Awards, since many of the shows that don't win awards tend to end their runs soon after, freeing up a load of theater space.

For now, the producers are planning a 10-show run at the Theatre Royal Plymouth in Devon, England, this Fall before heading to the West End and later taking the show on a European and US tour that, sadly, will skip Broadway in New York City. Still, Shor and Rose are currently working on getting the show funded, and hope to crowdsource $25,000 over the next few weeks to cover preproduction costs for the show.

          In Japan, Catholic Church plans to investigate sex abuse      Comment   Translate Page      

Tokyo, Japan, Apr 13, 2019 / 06:01 am (CNA).- Catholic bishops in Japan have said they will investigate reports of clergy sex abuse of minors dating back at least as far as 20 years, and they believe many victims might still be reluctant to come forward.

Committees have been established in all 16 dioceses to receive claims and consultations about abuse, the Japanese bishops' conference said April 8, announcing the decision of the conference standing committee. The specifics of an inquiry are not yet decided, but it will revisit previous reports for an “in-depth investigation,” the Japan Times reports.

The bishops are considering seeking help from external bodies.

In 2002 an internal survey made inquiries with the leading priest in each diocese. This resulted in two reported cases of sex abuse.

A 2012 survey aimed to be a reference point in a manual for internal use. It did not aim to investigate facts or to resolve sex abuse. Five sex abuse cases were reported then.

These surveys’ results will now be investigated to examine whether accused abusers faced punishment and how bishops responded to the victims, the Washington Post reports.

A 2004 survey on sexual harassment found 17 cases of “coercive physical contacts,” mostly by priests. The victims included minors. That survey had 110 respondents.

“Many of the alleged cases such as coercive physical contacts were forced by priests,” said the bishops’ conference. “We believe there are still a significant number of people who cannot speak up even today, 15 years since the survey.”

A 62-year-old man came forward alleging sexual abuse by a priest when he was at a Catholic boys’ school in Tokyo. Other Catholic schools have faced sex abuse allegations as well.

The Japanese Times in 2014 reported on alleged abuse of minors at St. Mary’s International School in Tokyo beginning in 1965. At least one case was later investigated by police.

There are about 440,000 Catholics in Japan, making up 0.3% of the population.

Pope Francis is set to visit Japan in November. In February he held an unprecedented meeting with the world’s Catholic bishops on sex abuse of minors in the Church.

“Let it be clear that before these abominations the Church will spare no effort to do all that is necessary to bring to justice whosoever has committed such crimes. The Church will never seek to hush up or not take seriously any case,” the Pope said in his December 21, 2018 annual Christmas speech to the Roman Curia.

The Pope’s own handling of sexual abuse cases came into focus especially in Chile, where he initially defended bishops accused of sex abuse coverup. He later asked for all the country’s bishops to offer their resignations.

In the United States, clergy sex abuse of minors in the Church peaked in the early 1970s, according to reports from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York. Though the scandal led to some news reports and internal church investigations in later decades, it did not become a nationwide focus until news reports in 2002 exposed scandal and coverup in Boston and across the country.

The sex abuse scandal again was inflamed in 2018 with the announcements of credible allegations of sex abuse of a minor against the deeply influential then-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, followed by accusations that he sexually abused young adult seminarians.

NYC Parents call for protection of their children’s privacy


What: Press conference to oppose DOE’s practice of sharing personal student information with charter schools
Who: NYC public school parents and parent leaders
When: Monday April 15, 2019 at 1:00 PM
Where: The steps of the Tweed Courthouse, 52 Chambers Street, downtown Manhattan

Why:   NYC public school parents and parent leaders  demand that the Mayor cease the practice of allowing charter schools access to student personal information.  NYC is the only district in the country which voluntarily shares this information with charters to help them market their schools and recruit students. In response to long-standing parent complaints, Chancellor Carranza has repeatedly promised parent leaders in recent weeks, both publicly and privately that this practice will be discontinued, but the Mayor has yet to make a commitment to do so and in the last few days has said no decision has yet been made.  

Parents have complained about the violation of their children’s privacy for years, and a FERPA complaint to the US Department of Education about this practice was filed in November 2017.  Moreover, by allowing access to this information, the DOE has encouraged the rapid expansion of charter schools, which are now costing our public schools more than $2.1 billion per year. As a result,  NYC public schools have less space and fewer resources to educate our neediest students.

While in the past, the DOE has suggested that public schools improve their “marketing”  to compete, they do not have the necessary funds to do so and in any case, most parents do not believe that the public schools  should be forced to divert what precious resources they have for this purpose.

The Education Council Consortium (ECC), made up of elected and appointed Community Education and Citywide Council members, was established to address issues that affect schools and communities throughout all five boroughs.  We meet regularly with the Chancellor to help shape, advise, provide feedback and comment on educational policies, visions and goals.

Background: The Hispanic/Latino population in the US is experiencing high rates of obesity and cardio-metabolic disease that may be attributable to a nutrition transition away from traditional diets emphasizing whole plant foods. In the US, plant-based diets have been shown to be effective in preventing and controlling obesity and cardio-metabolic disease in large samples of primarily non-Hispanic subjects. Studying this association in US Hispanic/Latinos could inform culturally tailored interventions.

Objective: To examine whether the plant-based diet pattern that is frequently followed by Hispanic/Latino Seventh-day Adventists is associated with lower levels of adiposity and adiposity-related biomarkers.

Methods: The Adventist Multiethnic Nutrition Study (AMEN) enrolled 74 Seventh-day Adventists from five Hispanic/Latino churches within a 20 mile radius of Loma Linda, CA into a cross-sectional study of diet (24 h recalls, surveys) and health (anthropometrics and biomarkers).

Results: Vegetarian diet patterns (Vegan, Lacto-ovo vegetarian, Pesco-vegetarian) were associated with significantly lower BMI (24.5 kg/m2 vs. 27.9 kg/m2, p = 0.006), waist circumference (34.8 cm vs. 37.5 cm, p = 0.01), and fat mass (18.3 kg vs. 23.9 kg, p = 0.007), as compared to non-vegetarians. Adiposity was positively associated with pro-inflammatory cytokines (Interleukin-6) in this sample, but adjusting for this effect did not alter the associations with vegetarian diet.

Conclusions: Plant-based eating as practiced by US-based Hispanic/Latino Seventh-day Adventists is associated with BMI in the recommended range. Further work is needed to characterize this type of diet for use in obesity-related interventions among Hispanic/Latinos in the US.


The rates of obesity and diabetes have sharply increased in the last decade among Hispanics/Latinos in North America (14). Currently, diabetes is the fifth leading cause of death in Hispanics/Latinos, and the trend represents a health disparity whereby rates are 60% higher among Hispanics/Latinos as compared to non-Hispanic Whites and increasing faster than in other major ethnic groups (3, 5). In a large sample of Hispanic/Latino adults in four regions of United States (n = 16,400), the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos found that about 1 in 3 individuals had pre-diabetes, and that only about half of individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) had it under control (6).

One potential contributor to this burden of obesity and diabetes is the occurrence of a “nutrition transition” occurring in most people of Mexican origin but accelerated in US Hispanic/Latinos as they acculturate to consuming higher intake of meats and processed foods, and lower intake of whole plant foods commonly found in the traditional diet (i.e., squash, maize, beans) (79). For example, the analysis of a nationally representative sample of US Mexican adults found higher rates of overweight/obesity in those who had “transitioned” from traditional eating patterns emphasizing maize to patterns emphasizing red meat, processed meat, and processed foods (1012). These emerging data support that a plant-based dietary intervention could be effective in primary and secondary prevention of obesity and obesity-related diabetes in the Hispanic/Latino population.

Overall, in a systematic review of 15 intervention studies (17 intervention groups among them) in multi-ethnic samples, Barnard et al. has shown that interventions with the vegetarian diet contributed to an average of more than 3 kg of weight loss (13). For diabetics, a similar systematic review of vegetarian diet interventions indicated significant improvement in glycemic control (14).

A recent pilot study at Loma Linda University has shown that a 5-week plant-based, culturally-tailored diet intervention implemented through community clinics and a church significantly improved hemoglobin A1C levels over a 6 month follow-up in 32 Latino diabetics living in a medically underserved area. At Loma Linda University, more than 60 years of NIH-funded prospective cohort studies [1960 Adventist Mortality Study (15), 1976 Adventist Health Study-1 (16), 2002 Adventist Health Study-2 (17)] have shown that the vegetarian diet was associated with lower risk of weight gain (18, 19), stroke (20), and diabetes (21, 22), and on this causal pathway, a longer life expectancy. These cohorts enrolled Seventh-day Adventists (most recently a nationwide cohort of 96,000 multi-ethnic adults in AHS-2) who provide a unique insight into diet since, due to faith-based recommendations, about 50% are vegetarian, and virtually all avoid smoking and alcohol (23). Faith-based counsels on diet also encourage the consumption of specific plant foods (i.e., legumes, nuts) in place of animal products (19). Hypotheses generated from these cohorts have been tested in landmark intervention trials.

The Adventist Multi-ethnic Nutrition (AMEN) Study is a new pilot study from Loma Linda University involving Hispanic/Latino Seventh-day Adventist adults for the purpose of studying the association between their cultural tailoring of a plant-based diet and selected health outcomes. To date, we have observed beneficial associations between health outcomes and culturally-tailored plant-based diet choices in Black Adventists (24, 25) and in Asian Adventists (20), respectively. The aim of this report is to test the hypothesis that the culturally-tailored plant-based dietary pattern practiced by Hispanic/Latino Seventh-day Adventists is associated with lower levels of adiposity and adiposity-related biomarkers. Findings from this work can potentially inform the cultural tailoring of plant-based diet choices for dietary interventions in the broader population of US Hispanic/Latinos.
Study Population

The AMEN study is a cross-sectional investigation of diet and cardio-metabolic markers conducted during 2013–2016 in churches within a 20 mile radius of Loma Linda University. Our target congregations were predominantly of Hispanic/Latino background. The inclusion criteria included: (1) age 18 years or older, (2) baptized into the Seventh-day Adventist church, (3) self-identify as Hispanic, and (4) no self-report of dementia, pregnancy, or breastfeeding.

Recruitment efforts were initiated by assembling a community advisory board of influential individuals from the Hispanic and Asian Adventist churches in Southern California. Based on the advice of this board, we selected five Hispanic congregations. An additional criterion was that the congregations be meeting in facilities that could accommodate a weekend health clinic. Recruitment from these congregations was done by: (1) linking recruitment to informative health and lifestyle presentations done by Loma Linda University lifestyle medicine faculty, (2) linking recruitment to health and wellness clinics done on the church premises over a weekend, and (3) notices on church bulletin boards, social media, and through e-mail campaigns.

Through these efforts, we recruited 141 subjects from the five congregations that had been invited to participate, of whom 101 subjects were eligible for enrollment. Due to missing data for pertinent diet and anthropometric variables, our analytic sample consisted of 74 subjects. All data collection forms were translated into English and Spanish, and a bi-lingual translator was available for assistance.
Outcome Measures

Eligible subjects were enrolled if they attended a health assessment clinic that occurred either as part of a health fair at their church or by appointment at Loma Linda University. A 12 h fasting blood sample drawn by a certified phlebotomist and first void urine sample were collected from each participant. For this analysis, biospecimens were analyzed for a comprehensive metabolic panel, and also tests of inflammatory markers (interleukin-6, C reactive protein) using a previously described protocol by Jaceldo-Siegl et al. (26). Briefly, collection of blood was done after an overnight fast, and serum was separated from the cells within 30 min of collection, placed on wet ice, and then shipped or transported to the central study laboratory at Loma Linda, CA for further processing. Blood was aliquoted to 0.5 mL samples and immediately stored in liquid nitrogen until analysis. Concentrations of CRP and IL-6 were measured in duplicate samples using enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kits from R & D Systems (Minneapolis, MN, USA) for IL-6, Thermo Fisher Scientific (Waltham, MA, USA), and Assaypro (St. Charles, MO, USA) for CRP. For IL-6, the detectable limit was 0.039 pg/mL, and intra- and inter-assay CV were 6.9 and 7.2%; and for CRP, these were 100 pg/mL, 5.5 and 7.6%, respectively.

Blood pressure (BP), weight, height, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), and body composition were assessed on-site. Height was measured to the nearest quarter inch (0.64 cm) using the Seca 214 Portable Height Rod (Seca Corp, Hamburg, Germany). Weight (measured to the nearest half pound or 0.23 kg) and body composition were assessed using a body composition analyzer (Tanita, Model TBF-300A, Arlington Heights, IL, USA). Waist circumference was obtained using an anthropometric tape placed around the waist just above the hipbone.

Blood pressure and resting pulse were assessed each as the average of three measurements using the OMRON Digital Blood Pressure Monitor HEM-7471C (Omron Healthcare Inc., Vernon Hills, IL, USA). All subjects were subject to a standard protocol, including a 5 min quiet relaxation period prior to the first reading of BP and resting pulse, and 1 min rest between consecutive measurements.
Classification of Vegetarian Diet

Dietary intake was assessed using two methods: (1) A single 24 h recall using standard methodology that has been discussed previously (27), (2) Survey items adapted from EPIC Oxford where subjects were also asked about their consumption (in the past 30 days) of four animal-based products (meat, fish, dairy, and eggs). Using the latter method to survey usual intake, participants were classified as non-vegetarian if they currently eat meat; pescatarian if they eat no meat but eat fish; lacto-ovo vegetarian if they eat dairy and eggs but not meat or fish; and strict vegetarian if they do not consume meat, eggs, fish and dairy. Due to the limited sample size, strict vegetarians, lacto-ovo vegetarians, and pescatarians were considered as following a plant-based diet and collapsed into a “vegetarian” group. Survey items measuring meat intake among Seventh-day Adventists have been validated against multiple 24 h recalls with correlations that exceed 0.80 (27).
Assessment of Demographic, Religiosity, and Culture-Specific Data

We obtained demographic, spoken language, nativity and religiosity data by questionnaire. Religiosity was assessed by asking the question, “How religious are you?” where we defined “religious” as having “to do with a personal experience and not just a behavior, like going to church.” Responses were elicited using a 10-point semantic differential scale where 1 represents not religious at all and 10 the most religious.

Descriptive analyses comparing vegetarians and non-vegetarians on selected subject characteristics were conducted using t-tests for continuous, and χ2 or Fisher test for categorical variables. Continuous outcome variables (anthropometric, body composition, pulse, and blood pressure measures) were compared in vegetarians and non-vegetarians using generalized linear models adjusted for age, sex, and education. Ninety-five percent confidence intervals for the difference between these adjusted means were computed using the standard errors of the regression coefficients in the models.

In Table 1, we examined demographics characteristics of Hispanic/Latino subjects in the AMEN study. We found that vegetarians tended to be older (p = 0.006) and more educated (p = 0.02) as compared to non-vegetarians (Table 1). There was no significant difference in religiosity between the vegetarians and non-vegetarians.


Table 1. Selected characteristics among Hispanic/Latino vegetarians and non-vegetarians in the Adventist Multi-ethnic Nutrition (AMEN) Study.

Vegetarian Diet and Adiposity

In linear regression models (Table 2), we tested the association between measures of adiposity (BMI, waist circumference (WC), fat mass, and percent body fat) as outcomes and vegetarian diet status as a main exposure. We found that BMI was lower among the vegetarians than the non-vegetarians (24.5 kg/m2 vs. 27.9 kg/m2, p = 0.006) after adjusting for age, sex, and education. Vegetarians also had significantly lower waist circumference (34.8 cm vs. 37.5 cm), fat mass (18.3 kg vs. 23.9 kg), and percent body fat (28.4% vs. 32%) as compared to non-vegetarians. Pulse rate, systolic and diastolic blood pressure values among vegetarians were not significantly different from those of non-vegetarians.


Table 2. Comparison of obesity measures, body composition, pulse, and blood pressure in vegetarians and non-vegetarians in the AMEN Study.

Vegetarian Diet, Adiposity, and Inflammatory Markers

We found that log-transformed interleukin-6 (IL-6) was positively associated with the following adiposity outcomes: BMI (β = 1.64, p = 0.04), waist circumference (β = 1.32, p = 0.08), fat mass (β = 1.32, p = 0.05), and fat percent (β = 4.22, p = 0.004). Adding the main exposure for vegetarian status to the model did not appreciably reduce these associations. For log transformed C-reactive protein (CRP), positive associations were found for fat mass (β = 2.38, p = 0.03) and fat percent (β = 3.13, p = 0.004). Similarly, adding the main exposure did not change CRP associations with measures of adiposity. We note that the power to detect mediation was low, making type 1 errors more likely.

There were no significant differences between vegetarians and non-vegetarians for log-transformed CRP (β = −0.06562, p = 0.78) or log-transformed IL-6 (β = −0.19132, p = 0.29).

In the AMEN study, we found that in a sample of Seventh-day Adventist Hispanic/Latino adults, those following a vegetarian dietary pattern had a BMI that was lower (24.5 kg/m2 vs. 27.9 kg/m2, p = 0.006) and within federally-recommended limits as compared to non-vegetarians. These findings were confirmed by similar decreases in other measures of adiposity [fat mass (18.3 kg vs. 23.9 kg), and percent body fat (28.4% vs. 32%)] and abdominal adiposity [waist circumference (34.8 cm vs. 37.5cm)].

These findings are concordant with findings from non-Hispanic white Adventists (18, 19, 22), Black/African American Adventists (22, 25), and Asian Adventists (20). For Black Adventists, Akbar et al. has reported a “cultural tailoring” of the vegetarian diet chosen whereby Southern and Caribbean influenced dietary patterns introduced a wide range of plant foods into the diet (24). In US-based Asian Indian Adventists, Singh reported the predominance of nuts as a major source of protein in vegetarians who were at lower BMI (20).

Our next step in the AMEN study was to investigate how the protective patterns of plant-based eating in Hispanic/Latino adults were influenced by cultural preference for specific plant foods. These data can potentially inform culturally-tailored plant-based dietary interventions for the broader population of US Hispanic/Latinos who have been experiencing a nutrition transition away from simpler, more traditional diets rich in whole plant foods.
Plant-Based Eating in US Hispanic/Latinos

Our data indicates that more plant-based eating in US-based Hispanic/Latino Adventist adults was associated on average with adiposity indices falling within the federally-recommended limits. If this association holds true also for non-Adventist Hispanics/Latinos, how feasible and scalable is it to have Adventist and non-Adventist Hispanics/Latinos increase their plant-based dietary choices as a means of preventing the obesity and cardiometabolic diseases that are disproportionately prevalent in their community?

When considering this question it is noteworthy that data from Latin America indicate a rich cultural tradition of eating and preparing a diverse range of regional plant foods. For example, the Tarahumara Indians of Mexico traditionally adhered to a diet consisting of beans, corn, and squash and very little meat, and this pattern has been associated with lower risk of cardiometabolic disease (28) and can be significantly compromised by plying the Tarahumara with a typical U.S. diet (29). Studies from South America report that vegan and semi-vegetarian Peruvian and Brazilian subjects (following traditional cultural choices involving plant foods) do have lower rates of hypertension, dyslipidemia, and obesity as compared to omnivores (30). These small studies provide clues that increasing plant-based diet choices based on long-held cultural traditions of eating whole plant foods can potentially be an attractive target for high impact interventions. When designing dietary interventions we note that the strict vegetarian diet pattern is not commonly practiced by US Hispanic/Latinos (31), and further research is needed in this community to examine whether increasing plant food intake to the point of semi-vegetarian or pescatarian pattern can improve health outcomes.
Plant-Based Eating, Pro-Inflammatory Cytokines, and Obesity in Hispanic/Latinos

Among the Hispanic/Latino adults of the AMEN study, we did find that measures of adiposity were associated with pro-inflammatory cytokines such as interleukin-6. Compared to non-vegetarian dietary patterns, vegetarian dietary patterns generate increased microbially-generated short chain fatty acids, which reduce systemic inflammation (e.g., IL-6), increase hormonal satiety-signaling (e.g., glucagon-like peptide-1) and reduce insulin resistance (32, 33). Among Hispanic/Latino subjects, recent studies suggest that IL-6 may be elevated from a young age, and the link across the lifespan to higher rates of cardiometabolic disease may be due to specific IL-6 polymorphisms in Latino youth (34). Interestingly, adding IL-6 to our models examining association with vegetarian diet exposure did not alter the protective effect of the diet on obesity.

The AMEN study has important limitations. The cross-sectional and observational design precludes inferring a causal effect from the association of diet with obesity and obesity-related disease. The purpose of our pilot study was to generate culturally-specific hypotheses for testing this association in longitudinal and experimental designs with novel culturally-tailored interventions.

The relatively small sample size limited our statistical power to test more complex food and nutrient models, and for testing interaction and mediation. We note, however, the significant and cross-validating associations between plant-based eating and measures of adiposity that persist despite the limited power to detect these associations.

Religiosity could also be a factor since we are studying a faith-based group. It is noteworthy, however, that we observed no difference in religiosity between the vegetarians and non-vegetarians we studied. Measurement error in dietary assessment is always present in observational work, but we note a decades-long track record by our research group validating diet and vegetarian diet survey measures in Adventists (16, 17, 35).

Our findings from Hispanic/Latino Seventh-day Adventists indicate that plant-based diet patterns were associated with adiposity in the recommended range, and effects were consistent across multiple measures of adiposity and obesity-related inflammatory markers. Further studies of how Hispanics/Latinos have culturally tailored the Adventist plant-based eating pattern could potentially inform interventions for the broader population of Hispanics/Latinos.

          La historia del "Dr. Sebi", el hondureño que dijo haber encontrado la cura del sida      Comment   Translate Page      

La Prensa


Alfredo Darrington Bowman fue un herborista y curandero hondureño.

Nació en Ilanga, Colón, en noviembre de 1933 y murió en la prisión de La Ceiba un 6 de agosto de 2016, fue apresado por no justificar más de 50 mil dólares.

Bowman era mejor conocido por "Dr.

Sebi", practicó la herbolaria y fue reconocido en EEUU como "El curador de las estrellas".

Aunque él no era doctor de profesión fue considerado así por médicos, abogados y agencias de protección al consumidor.

Las hierbas de su abuela le hicieron ganar notoriedad en EEUU, donde residió por algunos años, "Dr.

Sebi" fue aclamado por "sanar" a personas con sida a base de una dieta alcalina.

El Dr.

Sebi fue arrestado en La Ceiba en 2016 por no justificar miles de dólares.

Alfredo experimentó con la herbolaria por su insatisfacción de las prácticas médicas tradicionales en el tratamiento de su asma, diabetes e impotencia.

El recordado Bowman comenzó la práctica de curación a base de hierbas en New York luego de que Alfredo Cortés un herbolario mexicano lo curará de sus enfermedades.

El "Dr.

Sebi" realizó investigaciones sobre herbolaria en un centro de nutrición de La Ceiba llamado usha village.

Entre los actores que el naturista curó están: Lisa Lopes , Steven Seagal , John Travolta, Eddie Murphy y Michael Jackson.

Alfredo Darrington Bowman fue objeto de demandas por parte de centros naturistas de EEUU por sus prácticas herbolarias y de su fama de curar a muchas celebridades de Hollywood.

Michael Jackson contrató al Dr.

Sebi cuando sufría de estrés en el inicio de sus escándalos sexuales con niños.

Muchos de sus seguidores indican que el arresto en Honduras y su posterior muerte podría ser una conspiración para detener la cura de muchas enfermedades mortales a base de hierbas.

La misteriosa muerte de Michael Jackson, el accidente de Lisa Lopes en La Ceiba y la reciente muerte del rapero estadounidense Nipsey Hussle quien se encontraba haciendo un documental sobre los milagros del "Dr.

Sebi" levantan muchas preguntas sobre cuál es la importancia de los descubrimientos de curaciones a base de herbolaria que el hondureño pudo haber hecho en vida.

Medios de comunicación de EEUU en su momento publicaron que el Dr.

Sebi no había sido culpado de fraude, y que al menos doce personas dieron testimonios de haber sido curados del sida, herpes y otras enfermedades.

          What is Next for NXT After TakeOver: New York?      Comment   Translate Page      
NXT TakeOver: New York is barely in the history books, yet the question already needs to be asked of what is next for NXT. With established stars moving up to the main roster there are questions over the level of talent remaining in NXT and how this will affect each division over the next year.

WWE NXT wallpaper

NXT Championship Scene

Johnny Gargano finally won the elusive NXT Championship in what can only be described as an instant classic with Adam Cole in the main event of the frankly amazing NXT TakeOver: New York, but the victory highlights the dearth of top-level competitors currently wrestling in NXT.

This was apparent prior to Adam Cole winning the Fatal 5-Way as both Ricochet and Aleister Black were primed for promotion to the main roster, whilst both Velveteen Dream and Matt Riddle were embroiled in their own upper midcard rivalry. The unfortunate injury to Tommaso Ciampa has highlighted the reliance on the former DIY team members without truly establishing anyone else as a credible threat.

And the remedy to this issue? Unfortunately, there isn't an immediate answer other than accommodating for a rematch between Gargano and Cole (hopefully without interference from The Undisputed ERA) there doesn't seem to be a credible heel that can realistically challenge for the NXT Championship.

Velveteen Dream has previously been built up as a realistic contender to the NXT Championship, but he feels more comfortable in his current position as NXT North American champion and someone whom Full Sail fully connect with fully. His gimmick was doomed to fail, but the sheer charisma that Dream oozes and his undying commitment to the role has permanently endeared himself to the fans. A heel turn wouldn't be an option for Dream as it would alienate the fans.

If this was the road WWE were considering, it surely would have resulted in Matt Riddle claiming the NXT North American Championship, but this in itself suggests that WWE don't have faith in Matt Riddle in his current form to be pushed heavily.

NXT Kushida WWE

The arrival of KUSHIDA, however, throws up an interesting question, as it is unclear what role he will play in the coming months in NXT. He competed as a Junior Heavyweight in NJPW, but it is believed he left to join WWE due to the fact he wanted to compete as a Heavyweight and NJPW felt it wasn't something they could get behind.

If WWE have promised KUSHIDA a role as a heavyweight within NXT—where weight classes aren't an issue—he may be pushed closer to the NXT Championship scene than the NXT North American Championship, especially if his Puroresu style will complement Gargano's style well.

A face vs. face option may work well, but to ensure full investment in any storyline, it would be best served to turn one of them heel. With KUSHIDA's boyish good looks and Gargano's recent stint as a heel, it may be better to return to the edgier Gargano character that fans connected with, particularly if he adopted Ciampa's obsession with the NXT Championship and viewed it as an extension of himself.

The solution to the main event picture could be to increase the spotlight on upper-midcarders such as Matt Riddle, Roderick Strong and Velveteen Dream, in addition to moving former NXT stars to the roster such as Luke Harper and Tyler Breeze. That would inject life into their stale characters and give them far more purpose than they currently have.

Signing a huge free agent isn't currently possible, as MLW, AEW, ROH and Impact Wrestling are all signing their stars to exclusive deals. Pickings are scarce for a big name that could generate a buzz. However, Pete Dunne (fresh off his 685 day reign as NXT UK Champion) is better than a free agent, as he is not only comfortable with the WWE style, but is capable of 4 to 5 star matches without breaking a sweat. The credibility he has from his championship reign is more than enough to instantly elevate him to a main event program with Gargano, and if he reintroduced his heel persona, NXT would be able to advertise a true face vs. heel match with wrestlers the fans will more than be able to get behind. Mr. TakeOver vs The Bruiserweight is enough to have any Full Sail regular salivating.

NXT North American Championship

Velveteen Dream is settling in comfortably as one of the most over acts in NXT, and it appears trusting him with the North American Championship is starting to yield positive results as he produces 4-star match after 4-star match. For someone who came up from Tough Enough, Dream has the "it factor" and is surely a wrestler WWE can depend on for many years to come.

NXT Patrick Clark Velveteen Dream

It's interesting to note that as much as people want to see Dream promoted to the main roster, it is unclear what his future would hold. Nearly all NXT wrestler promotions have failed in one way or another. It is possible Dream's overtly camp and sexually ambiguous gimmick could be misused on the main roster, especially in ways that can gain cheap heat through simply being a camp wrestler. If Triple H is able to protect Dream, he will work superbly, but it is definitely a case that the devil you know may be better.

Matt Riddle arrived in NXT with much fanfare and his bro character seems to resonate with the fans, but there seems to be something missing from his repertoire. Namely, this is his lack of real promo skills outside of coming across as a cool stoner-type character. His wrestling ability more than makes him a viable contender to the North American Championship (as evidenced by his showing at TakeOver: New York) but perhaps Dream keeping the title around his waist is for the best.

The amazing thing about the upper-midcard scene is the believability of the wrestlers who are able to battle for the NXT Championship or chase the North American Championship. Adam Cole may decide to reclaim the championship which he was the inaugural winner of to assert the dominance of The Undisputed ERA or KUSHIDA may arrive and immediately set his sights on the North American Championship before graduating to an NXT Championship program.

NXT Tag Team Championship

War Raiders have taken to NXT like a duck to water and their unique imagery is a big part of why fans like them so much. They are hard-hitting and use interesting moves that you would expect men of their size would be unable to use. No more is this on display than their NXT Tag Team Championship match against Ricochet and Aleister Black at TakeOver: New York with War Raiders attempting to out-maneuver the departing duo with similarly athletic rolls and moves. The fans reacted, and they will continue to do so, as they are such a convincing and interesting team.

So who could rival them in the future? This would realistically be The Street Profits, but in order to be realistic challengers they will need to be rehabilitated with an extended run of wins against lower card teams. Despite holding the Dusty Rhodes Classic each year in NXT, outside of The Undisputed ERA, it feels as though there is a lack of credible options.

Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins

The Undisputed ERA challenging War Raiders doesn't feel fresh enough yet, so they could be used as a way of costing The Street Profits the championships without completely killing their potential. A War Raiders vs The Undisputed ERA feud could be gripping with the right build, and a potential third team in The Street Profits could lead to multiple scenarios where we have interesting matches and potentially multiple changes of the championships to create the idea that anything can happen in the division.

It would be best for NXT to focus on War Raiders as their all-conquering champions, especially if the end of their reign would be to a team that has been built up as meaningful and credible challengers. That is, unless we are treated to the return of The Authors of Pain, who would be better suited to a second run in NXT rather than treading water on Raw or SmackDown.

NXT Women's Championship

Shayna Baszler retaining at TakeOver: New York was a surprise, as it was felt she would lose and be promoted to the main roster. However, this is only to the detriment of Raw or SmackDown, as Baszler has transitioned from an awkward wrestler to one of the best women NXT has produced. Her Queen of Spades character is compelling and she remains the most convincing wrestler in the women's division, as her performances would not look out of place in an MMA fight. Convincing and compelling wrestling has been enough to allow Baszler to provide the same level of dominance and intrigue that Asuka had when she was NXT women's champion.

Bianca Belair has been built up as a credible threat and has a unique look in the form of her increasingly lengthy hair, but it remains unclear if she is someone to build the division around. Unconvincing matches and a severe lack of an interesting character work against her.

Kairi Sane and Io Shirai are incredible Japanese wrestlers and connect with Full Sail fans, although it has been rumored they will be brought up with Paige to SmackDown as part of the Superstar Shake-up. If they do remain in NXT, though, they can both act as the face opponent to Baszler's heel act. Japanese wrestlers seem to thrive in NXT and these two are no different.

Granted, the NXT women's division is not as good as it once was. Four Horsewomen, I'm looking at you. But it does have enough talent to produce interesting matches, and with the right development, anyone can present as an intriguing foe to Baszler.

Viper NXT UK Piper Niven

An X-Factor may arrive in the form of Piper Niven, as she was one of the best unsigned women's wrestlers outside of WWE. Despite being scheduled to join NXT UK, she could easily transition to NXT after a few months and be the conquering face that defeats Baszler to send her packing (deservedly) to the main roster. Watch this space, as Niven will definitely have a role in NXT by WrestleMania 36.

Overall Thoughts

At the end of the day, NXT is a developmental product and it is important to always view it as such. As a result of producing consistently strong TakeOver cards, the strongest and most compelling wrestlers will always be promoted, and it is Triple H's job to identify able replacements to grab that so-called "brass ring" and display the skills to take them to NXT glory.

The WWE Performance Center is an amazing facility that needs to produce more homegrown talent in the same vein as Velveteen Dream. Tino Sabbatelli springs to mind as a Performance Center regular who needs to make the transition to NXT regular. In order to make NXT TV consistently compelling, we need these home grown talents to get behind.

Seasoned wrestlers arriving from independent promotions can only work for so long. Just like any sports team, NXT needs to build a strong foundation for the future with their talent development program. The fact that a large proportion of the current Raw and SmackDown roster are former NXT wrestlers speaks volumes for the strength of NXT and how it benefits WWE as a whole. In order for this to continue, Triple H needs to constantly be aware of the hidden talent he has at his disposal.

Moving wrestlers to NXT from the main roster is an option that could benefit each party involved. Rarely-used talent who could be a viable threat in NXT would receive more time to show their skills and show the greener wrestlers how to hone their craft.

Ultimately, NXT will always retain it's quality because Triple H is the mastermind behind everything. Triple H the wrestler may be tired and past it, but Triple H the booker remains one of the smartest minds in the industry. With his desire and determination, there is only one truth: the future is bright and the future is NXT!

          如果人掉進黑洞…會被「拉成麵條」嗎? 給地球人的黑洞指南      Comment   Translate Page      

▲▼ 黑洞 。(圖/中央研究院提供)

▲「事件視界望遠鏡」拍下首張黑洞影像, 距離地球5500萬光年 。(圖/中央研究院提供)


「事件視界望遠鏡(Event Horizon Telescope)計畫」於台灣時間10日晚間公開人類史上首張「黑洞照片」,寫下天文史新頁。但對於黑洞這個宇宙中最神秘天體,人們好奇究竟什麼是黑洞,人如果跌入黑洞會怎麼樣呢?《紐約時報》(The New York Times)特別為所有的「地球生靈」,整理出幾條有關「黑洞」的有趣指南。



黑洞的邊緣被稱為「事件視界」(event horizon),是一條沒有歸路的邊界,千萬注意要遠離這條邊界,因為一旦過了邊界,就連光都會被吸入黑洞,沒有辦法逃脫,而沒有任何東西比光速還快。


可能有些人想錯了,或者我們不得不承認,人類仍然不具備瞭解宇宙奧秘的能力。黑洞火牆悖論質疑最明確的科學理論。愛因斯坦(Albert Einstein)、波爾欽斯基(Joseph Polchinski)、霍金(Stephen Hawking),或者根本沒有人知道;如果我們能夠真正知道物理資訊在黑洞內會發生什麼變化,我們對於宇宙的一切知識都可能改變。

註:火牆悖論(firewall paradox)是物理學上一個假說,認為當觀察者落入黑洞的事件視界,會遭遇高能量子密集聚在一起而形成的「火牆」。此概念由阿姆黑利(Ahmed Almheiri)、馬若夫(Donald Marolf)、波爾欽斯基和蘇利(James Sully)等4位物理學家於2012年提出,但學界對此仍有爭議,因為其違反愛因斯坦廣義相對論中的「等效原理」。










2003年,天文學家法比安(Andrew Fabian)領導的團隊利用美國NASA的錢卓拉X射線天文台(Chandra X-ray Observatory)發現了宇宙中最長、最古老、最低沉的「黑洞之歌」。儘管這對人耳來說實在太低沉,無論如何人都不可能直接聽見。







▲▼星星, 星空, 觀星, 銀河, 旅行一個人慢慢走(圖/記者徐文彬攝)




正如物理學家惠勒(John Archibald Wheeler)所說的「黑洞無毛」(A black hole has no hair),意即黑洞只有質量、角動量以及電荷三個守恆量,其他任何物質所具備的性質都不存在。







2008年6月,安全審查宣布LHC實驗安全無虞後,實驗正式開始,結果地球不但沒有毀滅,人類還發現了俗稱「上帝粒子」的希格斯玻色子(Higgs boson)。

Asymmetry by Lisa Halliday Book details Title: Asymmetry Author: Lisa Halliday Pages: 304 Format: PDF / EPUB / MOBI ISBN: 9781501166785 Publisher: Simon &amp; Schuster Description Asymmetry: A Novel by Lisa Halliday The bestselling and critically acclaimed debut novel by Lisa Halliday, Asymmetry, hailed as “extraordinary” by The New York Times, “a brilliant and complex examination of power dynamics in love and war” by The Wall Street Journal, and “a literary phenomenon” by The New Yorker. Told in three distinct and uniquely compelling sections, Asymmetry explores the imbalances that spark and sustain many of our most dramatic human relations: inequities in age, power, talent, wealth, fame, geography, and justice. The first section, “Folly,” tells the story of Alice, a young American editor, and her relationship with the famous and much older writer Ezra Blazer. A tender and exquisite account of an unexpected romance that takes place in New York during the early years of the Iraq War, “Folly” also suggests an aspiring novelist’s coming-of-age. By contrast, “Madness” is narrated by Amar, an Iraqi-American man who, on his way to visit his brother in Kurdistan, is detained by immigration officers and spends the last weekend of 2008 in a holding room in Heathrow. These two seemingly disparate stories gain resonance as their perspectives interact and overlap, with yet new implications for their relationship revealed in an unexpected coda. A stunning debut from a rising literary star, Asymmetry is “a transgressive roman a clef, a novel of ideas, and a politically engaged work of metafiction” (The New York Times Book Review), and a “masterpiece” in the original sense of the word” (The Atlantic). Lisa Halliday’s novel will captivate any reader with while also posing arresting questions about the very nature of fiction itself.

          Proposal Would Overhaul Public Service Loan Forgiveness      Comment   Translate Page      

Democratic lawmakers introduced a bill Thursday that would cut the wait time for debt relief under the Public Service Loan Forgiveness and expand eligibility to any borrower who holds a federal student loan.

The PSLF program promises debt cancellation for borrowers in eligible public or nonprofit sector jobs who make 120 monthly qualifying payments. It also requires that borrowers hold federal direct loans.

The bill, which was introduced by New York senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Virginia senator Tim Kaine, would allow borrowers to have half their debt forgiven after meeting eligibility requirements for five years. And it would expand eligibility to all types of federal student debt, including FFEL loans issued before the switch to direct federal lending in 2010.

The legislation would also require the Education Department to provide clearer guidance to borrowers up front about eligibility for loan forgiveness and simplify the application process.

The bill is co-sponsored by 13 other Democrats, including presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar and Cory Booker.

The Trump administration has repeatedly proposed eliminating the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program. A 2017 House Republican proposal to reauthorize the Higher Education Act also called for eliminating PSLF, although it would grandfather in current borrowers.

          Report: BDS Co-Founder Barred From Entering U.S.      Comment   Translate Page      

The U.S. is said to have denied entry to Omar Barghouti, a co-founder of movement to impose boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) on Israel, National Public Radio reported. Among other planned stops on his U.S. trip, Barghouti had planned to speak at Harvard and New York Universities.

The Arab American Institute, which had organized Barghouti’s travel, said in a statement that Barghouti was blocked from boarding a plane despite holding valid travel documents and that he was told that U.S. immigration officials had ordered the U.S. consul in Tel Aviv to bar him from traveling to the U.S. According to the institute, Barghouti was not given a reason other than it being an "immigration matter."

A State Department official declined to comment, citing the confidentiality of visa records under U.S. law.

          Preparing the Thesis Proposal Defense      Comment   Translate Page      

Ingrid J. Paredes is a Ph.D. candidate in chemical engineering at New York University. You can find her on Twitter @ingridjoylyn.

In my program, we have four major milestones towards graduation: the qualifying exam, which is based on a critique of a peer-reviewed publication; the thesis proposal defense; the data defense; and finally, the dissertation defense. At the end of this month, I’ll check #2 off of my list. The defense requires the preparation of a report and delivery of a presentation detailing what I plan to do for the last two years of my PhD. Since defenses are often set up similarly, I’ve compiled a roundup of my own tips on how to prepare.

Create a Plan and Compile Your Resources
As soon as you schedule your proposal defense, create a plan for what tasks you need to accomplish. Megan’s checklist is a great place to start. Talk to other graduate students in your department who have defended recently, especially students who share committee members with you. Talk to your adviser to ensure that your timeline works.

At Megan’s suggestion, I also included non-thesis daily tasks into my schedule, including commute time, leisure time, and food plans in my own timeline. I’m usually flexible with these, but having them on my calendar for the weeks leading up to my defense has helped me budget my time properly. I am also very religious with my writing time – even if I hit a block with my proposal, I try to work on other projects (like this blog post!) or journal to keep momentum. To avoid distractions, I usually set a timer for 20 to 30 minute intervals where I focus just on writing, and then I take a break for a few minutes.

Before I write a paper or start a slide deck, I write on a stack of index cards with each of the topics I’d like to discuss to storyboard my research. This process works because it removes the distractions that come with working on a computer. Like, when I’m writing in Word, I often get so caught up with formatting and inserting references after each sentence that I write that it distracts me from actually writing.

For my proposal, I’ve organized my cards into three sections that I laid out on the floor: the introduction, the proposal plan, and my conclusions. Each index card has a title and a few bullet points and/or sketches of the material I plan to discuss. I laid these out in separate columns in front of me, which allowed me to easily visualize how much time I was dedicating to teach topic as well as the flow of my talk. I’ve run through this deck of cards a few times now, reciting a very rough version of my talk and reorganizing them as I’ve seen fit. It’s only once I feel confident about the logic of the presentation that I’ll actually finish writing and create my Powerpoint slides.

Backup Slides
My weak point in presentations is taking questions –I’m usually so nervous that I freeze. Having backup slides has been a safety blanket for me. Whenever I make a slide on a topic and feel like I need to provide more information, I chuck all of that information into a separate slide deck. That way the information is on hand for me to pull up on the screen in case any questions call for it. Preparing these is studying for the exam in and of itself!

Time Yourself
I speak really quickly when I’m nervous. To avoid finishing a 30 minute presentation in 10 minutes, I run through my presentations a few times with a timer on, even timing pauses and slots for questions. These pauses allow me to catch a break as well as for my listeners to do likewise.

Ask for Specific Feedback
When I first started preparing my for my defense, my adviser told me to pretend like I’m a lawyer. Make my presentation tight, from logic to design. I suggest practicing with your lab group and peers as well as with groups that aren’t familiar with your work. I have a few friends who are used to this by now, and I’ll go to them asking for feedback on specific aspects of my talk, like grammar, the number of “um’s” or “likes” I say, or slide design. Friends outside of my field have also been helpful in asking me about the basics of my research, helping me tighten my arguments.

I try to practice in front of the same crowd twice, first for an initial run, and then in the second go. Afterwards, I have a set of questions that I like to ask:

- What stood out to you in the talk?​
- Which part of the talk was most boring?
- At which point if any did I seem the most nervous/unsure?
- Did you notice any body language—hand gestures, looking away from the audience?

My presentation is 30 minutes long, which is a little over the length of a sitcom. While I know I won’t be as funny as an episode of Fresh off the Boat, I can plan to be as engaging as possible, and the best way to do that is to ask the audience themselves for feedback!

For writing, I’ve recorded an audio version to see how the words sound off the page. I’ll stick with a sentence until they sound right for me to say out loud. For presentations, I go back and make revisions right after a rehearsal while they’re fresh on my mind.

Day Of
While I’m not there yet, I do have a day-of ritual for any exam or presentations! I eat my favorite meal, I go through my presentation no more than twice, and I wear an outfit I’ve planned a few days in advance and practiced my talk in. Most importantly, I make sure to buy a bottle of champagne to celebrate immediately after.

What tips do you have for preparing for your quals?

          Event Update For 2019-04-11      Comment   Translate Page 

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.
