          Can This Breakfast Cereal Help Save The Planet?      Comment   Translate Page      
This past week in San Francisco, food writers and environmentalists gathered to taste some breakfast cereal. This particular cereal had an ingredient — the milled seeds of a little-known plant called Kernza — that's the result of a radical campaign to reinvent agriculture and reverse an environmentally disastrous choice made by our distant ancestors. The campaign began 40-some years ago with a scientist-environmentalist named Wes Jackson . He argued that humanity took a wrong turn, thousands of years ago, when it came to rely on crops like wheat and rice for basic sustenance. These "annual" crops need replanting each year, "which means that if you're going to get your seed to germinate, you've got to destroy the vegetation at the surface," clearing away anything that might compete with the fragile seedlings, Jackson said . As farmers use tillage tools or herbicides to get rid of competing vegetation, they inevitably wipe away habitat for birds and insects. Bare soil washes away and

          Kim Kardashian pivots to law      Comment   Translate Page      
"First year of law school," Kim Kardashian West told US Vogue in her May cover interview, "you have to cover three subjects: criminal law, torts, and contracts." (For the record, there are a few others, too, including constitutional law and civil procedure). For Kardashian, "Torts is the most confusing, contracts the most boring, and crim law I can do in my sleep. Took my first test, I got a 100. Super easy for me."

Kardashian announced this week in the same interview that she began a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco last summer and wants to take the California bar exam in 2022. (She is not enrolled in law school. Under California law, aspiring lawyers can undertake an apprenticeship and if they pass the bar exam, they can practice law -- even without a law school degree).

The reality superstar's pivot to becoming a lawyer -- apparently motivated by her stated desire to do more to improve the criminal justice system, "to fight to fix it," -- has prompted a mixed response. Many have predictably derided the move as idiotic, telling her to stay in her lane. Others have called the criticism sexist, highlighting the obvious comparison between Kardashian and Reese Witherspoon's character in the 2001 movie "Legally Blonde," Elle Woods -- also initially dismissed in her law school efforts because of her looks and past persona.

The bottom line is this: Kardashian is inspiring for choosing a new path as a 38-year-old mother of three -- and she is also the nauseatingly privileged proof that in today's America, no option is off-limits for the very wealthy.

In many ways, this is the most interesting thing Kim Kardashian West has ever done. And it says a lot about the susceptibility of the public and press to her carefully-constructed image that so few saw this coming.

There are some obvious ways in which this path makes sense for Kardashian. Her father, Robert Kardashian, was a well-known lawyer, part of OJ Simpson's defense team. She has already demonstrated an interest in the law, making herself heard on criminal justice issues and playing a significant part last year in President Trump's release of Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old woman who'd been in an Alabama prison on a nonviolent drug charge since 1996.

Meeting with Trump, alongside CNN commentator and activist Van Jones, plus several lawyers, Kardashian West helped persuade the President with a force of argument Jones described as "the most effective, emotionally intelligent intervention that I've ever seen in American politics." She has also worked for months with #cut50, a bipartisan advocacy group aiming to reform the criminal-justice system. Compared with some of her other ventures -- advertising dangerous slimming teas to her legions of young female fans, for example -- this looks not just like a step in a far more positive direction, but a break from the brand the Kardashian family has built over the years.

The Kardashians are described in public discourse variously as mercenary, feminist, impressive, groundbreaking, and sickeningly superficial. There are strong arguments to be made for every case, but despite so many opposing characteristics, they tend to be referred to as a monolith -- not individuals so much as component parts of a vast, unprecedented money machine.

Kim Kardashian, for years the most famous member of her family, was somehow the most Kardashian. She was the most polished, the most bankable (until sister Kylie Jenner's ascent), almost inhumanly adapted to the constant whirl of 5 a.m. workouts, three-hour makeup sessions, photo shoots and paparazzi that the machine demanded. She leaned in to the living doll persona, which the media so eagerly bestowed upon her, and as a result, many now have difficulty imagining her as anything but that.

Throughout 16 seasons of the reality show that made her family world-famous, Kim's demeanor has scarcely changed. A couple of upsetting instances aside, she has remained placid throughout, more prone to asking questions than volunteering confidences herself. When emotions ran high as Caitlin Jenner went public with her transition, Kim was often the mediator, allowing everyone their say, but intervening to defuse tense conversations when necessary.

In a way, it is her predictability that makes Kim Kardashian such comforting television. With her, you always know what you're getting. In retrospect, some of those considered responses signpost a personality that could be mesh with a career in law.

When in 2017, Kardashian described the process of identifying the men who robbed her at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room in October 2016, she was matter of fact. She itemized events without adding color or emotion, even noting that the men who had attacked her were 'pretty honest' in their recall of that night. Her most revealing comment was that it was "interesting" to know that they had been following her for over a year. She added that she was "thankful" for the experience, as it had afforded her "all the background info'"she needed on how she could protect herself in future.

Her recent foray into criminal justice also isn't the first time that digging below her contoured surface has revealed unexpected depths. Following the Parkland shooting last year, she tweeted to urge Congress to do its job and "protect Americans from senseless gun violence." She also took to Twitter in 2015 to denounce lax gun laws, after David Conley bought a gun online to kill his ex-girlfriend, her husband, and her six children, including his own son (she tweeted, "Does this not sicken you?"). She did so again after the 2017 Las Vegas music festival shooting to share an image denouncing high capacity firearms as inconsistent with the Second Amendment.

Every time she has spoken out on gun laws, Kim has been met with derogatory remarks such as, "Stick to selfies." But she has backed up her tweets. In 2016, she met with gun violence survivors from Sandy Hook and San Bernardino. For several years, she's been a creative council member of the organization Everytown For Gun Safety, which is dedicated to gun safety and fighting for legislative reform. In 2017, she recognized National Gun Violence Awareness Day by speaking out against a bill signed by Trump that revoked an Obama-era regulation. She may not always broadcast it, but Kim Kardashian does her homework.

As far as her metamorphosis from reality star into woke lawyer goes, the proof will be in the pudding. If her previous activities -- not to mention the acquisitive tendencies of her mother, Kris Jenner -- are any indication, within the next decade we will see a Kardashian law firm, capitalizing on the family name but well-stocked with qualified lawyers to ensure it goes the distance (and makes as much money as possible). For now though, as a woman whose career thus far has been fed by sex appeal and social media, Kardashian's move is a bold one, picking a direction that demands a completely different skill set, and flies in the face of expectations. When asked by Vogue what she will be remembered for, she replied aptly, "For my many talents."

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

Authored by Jean Ranc via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Ditching Solzhenitsyn, Defender of Russia”

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

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

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

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

Russophobia: akin to Racism

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

Whom the Gods would destroy, they first drive mad?

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

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

Regime Change Comes Home

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

A Florentine Epiphany

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

The 21st Century Inquisition

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

Any Good Sense Left?

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

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

          California Judges Hand Trump Rare Court Win By Allowing Return Of Migrants To Mexico      Comment   Translate Page      

It might be a sign of the apocalypse, but a panel of judges in the Ninth Circuit has temporarily blocked a California judge's order to halt a Trump administration policy to allow the return of some asylum seekers to Mexico while they await their court dates - handing the administration a rare victory in the courts.

According to the Associated Press, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a temporary stay Friday, blocking a ruling by San Francisco Judge Richard Seeborg, who delivered a temporary injunction on Monday blocking the policy while challenges filed by civil liberties groups moved forward.

Seeborg justified the injunction by arguing that the policy failed to take into account the dangers that migrants might face in Mexico.

Migrants

The three-judge panel set a Tuesday deadline for civil liberties groups to submit arguments for why the policy should be discontinued while the issue winds its way through the courts. The panel set a Wednesday deadline for the White House to argue why the policy should remain in effect.

The government asked the panel to reconsider the injunction, arguing that Seeborg's argument was made in error, and that keeping the migrants in the US, where federal facilities are overflowing, forcing the government to release more asylum seekers amid an unprecedented surge in border-crossings. More than 100,000 migrants crossed into the US via the southern border in March - a 12-year high.

The circuit court managed to block the injunction before it took effect, meaning there was no interruption to the Trump administration's plans to start returning some migrants to Mexico, according to the AP.

Though the decision doesn't mean the policy will be upheld indefinitely - it could still ultimately be ruled unconstitutional - but it does underscore how San Francisco judges have been a persistent thorn in the administration's side when it comes to immigration policy, contributing to the White House's six percent win rate on legal challenges surrounding its policies.

Panic

At a time when appropriations authorized by Trump's national emergency declaration appear to be moving forward in spite of a flurry of legal challenges, one can't help but wonder if this marks a turning point in the administration's struggle to implement its immigration agenda, as the crisis at the border - which Democrats declared "fake" as recently as February - has now been widely acknowledged, as municipal officials from border cities like McAllen, Texas, which have strained under the influx of migrants requiring shelter, medical care and other services, have warned of a "system-wide collapse."

          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.”

          Wikipedia isn’t officially a social network. But harassment can get ugly      Comment   Translate Page      

In Wikipedia’s 18 years of existence, it has become a fixture in our lives: It ascends to the top of Google’s search results and provides answers to the questions we ask Alexa and Siri.

For the San Francisco organization’s editing community, the website is even more. It is a kind of social network where users debate the minutiae of history and modern life, climb the editorial hierarchy and even meet friends and romantic partners.

It is also a place where editors can experience relentless harassment. In 2016, Pax Ahimsa Gethen, a trans male Wikipedian, was persistently hit with personal attacks over several months. Gethen, 49, who uses the pronouns “they” and “them,” said the anonymous harasser posted that they were “insufferable” and “unloved,” that they belonged in an internment camp and that they should kill themself.

Gethen said the user also publicly posted their deadname, the name they used before transitioning.

“It was devastating to me because of the personal nature of it,” Gethen said.

Unlike at social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, the people who handle reports of harassment on Wikipedia are largely unpaid.

In response to complaints about pervasive harassment, the Wikimedia Foundation, the nonprofit that operates Wikipedia and supports its community of volunteers, has promised strategies to curb abuse. In recent months, the foundation has rolled out a more sophisticated blocking tool that it hopes can better control the harassment plaguing some users.

Sydney Poore, a community health strategist with the foundation, said that when the free encyclopedia was established in 2001, it initially attracted lots of editors who were “tech-oriented” men. That led to a culture that was not always accepting of outside opinions, said...

          IPO Uber conviene? Il negativo precedente di Lyft      Comment   Translate Page      
Tutto pronto per l'IPO di Uber a Wall Street. La società Uber Technologies Inc. ha reso noto di aver presentato domanda di quotazione sulla borsa Usa alla SEC, la Securities and Exchange Commission. Stando alle previsioni i numeri dell'IPO di Uber saranno da capigiro tanto che il collocamento delle azioni Uber (questa la sigla delle azioni) finalizzato allo sbarco in borsa si configura come l'operazione più importante dai tempi di Facebook. In poche parole la quotazione della Uber Technologies Inc. di San Francisco, società attiva nel settore del trasporto automobilistico privato attraverso l'uso di un'applicazione mobile, sarà certamente destinata ad entrare nella storia come avvenne a suo tempo con lo sbarco delle azioni del noto social network.  Mentre cresce l'attesa per conoscere quelli che saranno i dettagli della quotazione, a partire dal range di prezzo delle azioni Uber, in tanti si stanno chiedendo se aderire all'operazione di collocamento sarà conveniente o meno. In assenza di informazioni su prezzi e livello di capitalizzazione, non si può ovviamente dare una risposta a questa domanda. Se si resta più sul generale, invece, è possibile fare alcune considerazioni. Quella di Uber non sarà la prima IPO di società attive nel trasporto auto tramite l'uso di applicazione mobile. Questo primato, infatti, spetta già alla rivale Lyft Inc. società che venne collocato a Wall Street a 72 dollari per azione. Purtroppo oggi le azioni Lyft passano di mano sul listino della borsa americana ad un prezzo decisamente più basso. Ad esempio nella seduta di ieri 11 aprile, le quotazioni Lyft sono scese a 61,01 dollari. Siamo oltre 10 dollari più in basso del prezzo al momento dell'IPO. Se si guarda questo precedente, quindi, c'è poco da stare sereni. Tuttavia è anche imporante considerare quello che è il rapporto di proporzioni tra Uber e Lyft. Quest'ultima ha chiuso lo scorso anno fiscale con in fatturato peri a 11,3 miliardi di dollari mentre Uber è stat recentemente valutata in area 100 miliardi di dollari bel al di sopra dell'attuale capitalizzazione di mercato di Lyft che arriva a appena a 20,59 miliardi. Uber è 5 volte Lyft e questo non è un dato da trascurare. Per quello che riguarda il collocamento delle azioni Uber (quindi l'IPO vera e propria), l'operazione verrà supportata da ben 30 banche. Capofila del collocamento saranno Morgan Stanley e Goldman Sachs. Anche il numero delle banche facenti parte del team di supporto è indicativo dell'importanza dell'IPO Uber.

          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.

White House considered releasing detained migrants in sanctuary cities: Washington PostWhite House officials have tried to pressure U.S. immigration authorities to release migrants detained at the border into so-called sanctuary cities such as San Francisco to retaliate against President Donald Trump's political adversaries, the Washington Post reported on Thursday. The Post, which reviewed emails on the issue and spoke to unnamed officials at the Department of Homeland Security, said the White House proposed the measure at least twice in the past six months.

FACEBOOK REMOVES PAGE OF ECUADOR’S FORMER PRESIDENT ON SAME DAY AS ASSANGE’S ARREST

Prior to the removal of the page, Correa lambasted his successor in a series of posts


Facebook has unpublished the page of Ecuador’s former president, Rafael Correa, the social media giant confirmed on Thursday, claiming that the popular leftist leader violated the company’s security policies. 

"...Since 2015, Correa—who lives with his family in Brussels, Belgium—had used the social platform to great effect, using strongly-worded posts, video interviews, and live-streams as a platform amid the Ecuadorean media’s de facto blackout of the former leader, who remains reviled by the center-right former opposition and sections of the country’s left.
Former President Correa minced no words in his assessment of Moreno, denouncing him in an English-language tweet as “the greatest traitor in Ecuadorian and Latin American history … Moreno is a corrupt man, but what he has done is a crime that humanity will never forget.” ...

Trump Fires Off Late Night Tweet – Calls Democrats’ Open Border Policies “TREASONOUS”

President Trump fired off a late night tweet Wednesday, calling the actions taken by Democrats to keep the borders wide open, “TREASONOUS.”

Thank you, President Trump for calling it what it is!
“I think what the Democrats are doing with the Border is TREASONOUS. Their Open Border mindset is putting our Country at risk. Will not let this happen!” Trump said in a tweet.

There is a huge crisis at the US-Mexico border with record number of illegal aliens flooding into the United States.
Asylum seekers are being released into communities because of dangerous “catch and release” policies and Congress refuses to act.
No doubt these caravans of illegals are being funded by open border zealots looking to destroy US sovereignty.
Multiple caravans full of military-aged Central Americans and other migrants from all over the world are currently marching to the US border where they will seek asylum then be released into the US.

Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodolfo Karisch said that in his sector alone, border agents have captured people trying to enter the country illegally from more than 50 different countries, including Turkey, China, Bangladesh, Egypt and Romania. “People are traveling across hemispheres to attempt to illegally enter the U.S., using the same pathways as the Central Americans,” he told lawmakers.
“Karisch noted that Border Patrol has apprehended more families illegally crossing the border in the first five months of fiscal 2019 than during all of fiscal 2018,” Fox News reported. “Customs and Border Protection (CBP) apprehended more than 76,000 migrants across the border in February and said it was on track to apprehend more than 100,000 in March. In the Rio Grande Valley alone, Karisch said that at current pace, they would have more than 260,000 apprehensions in his sector by the end of fiscal 2019. There were 162,000 in RGV last year. He also said that his agents apprehend, on average, 1,000 people a day.”
President Trump declared a national emergency in February to secure funding for a border wall, however, the insanely dangerous asylum laws are causing the biggest surge of illegal aliens flooding over the border.
Despite nearly 100,000 illegal invaders being apprehended by border patrol in the month of March alone, Democrats continue to give comfort and aid to the invaders by refusing to stop the border surge.
Judge Richard Seeborg on Monday blocked President Trump’s policy of returning asylum seekers to Mexico as they wait their turn for an immigration judge to hear their cases.
Judge Seeborg, an Obama appointee in San Francisco, granted a request by a civil liberties group that sued the Trump Administration on behalf of 11 asylum seekers from Central America.
Trump is right — what the Democrats are doing with the border is treasonous.

Dear Savannah, 

You can’t make this up.
Yesterday I went to the Attorney General’s Office in New Hampshire to give them proof of voter fraud.  An admission from an Atkinson man who voted twice in the same election in two different states.

You can view the video HERE.
How did they respond?
They handed me and my executive producer a grand jury subpoena.  
Did the summons mention anything about voter fraud or double voting?  Of course not. 
We are now ordered to appear before a grand jury in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire for an investigation.

Our journalists found a man who admitted to double voting.  Breaking the law!
Now, the response of the AG’s office isn’t to investigate the double voter, but instead our operations.
I will not budge.  I will not capitulate.  And I will not cave to this political pressure.
I will keep releasing voter fraud videos in New Hampshire and I will not be not be intimidated by the misguided use of the grand jury process to try and prevent our lawful investigative journalism.
I'm not asking for your money, I'm asking for your help.
Please help me put pressure on the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office to investigate this voter fraud case right now.  
Please call their investigator Robert J. Sullivan at:603-271-1182
Or you can email him atRobert.Sullivan@doj.nh.gov
Tell him the following:
Please investigate Robert A. Bell for admitting to voting twice.  Why did you subpoena James O'Keefe, the journalist, instead of subpoenaing the person who voted twice? 
Be Brave!
James O’Keefe

Chinese cops send people to ‘concentration camps’ if they’re found with Facebook on phones during random stop and searches

Western social media is banned in China’s Xinjiang region where police are accused of seizing phones and installing spyware


"...Offenders are said to be sent to "re-education" camps to clamp down on social media use.
Mandatory spyware is downloaded onto citizen’s phones to restrict what citizens can access.
And police check mobiles for evidence of foreign social media apps like Twitter or WhatsApp.
Xinjiang is home to 11 million Uighurs - one of China’s fifty-five ethnic minorities who have their own language and mainly practice Islam.
The Chinese government is accused of routinely targeting citizens of the region with “counter-terror” measures and brutal policing.
Kasim, who claims to be a Xinjiang native, shared what he says are secretly taken pictures inside the secretive region, which the Chinese government restricts access to by outsiders.
He says he used special software to bypass the government's censors and post the images on Twitter.
And he said living in China is “like Nazi Germany” and likened the Chinese Communist Party to ISIS..."

Your car is watching you. Who owns the data?

Computers on wheels raise thorny questions about data privacy

If you’re driving a late model car or truck, chances are that the vehicle is mostly computers on wheels, collecting and wirelessly transmitting vast quantities of data to the car manufacturer not just on vehicle performance but personal information, too, such as your weight, the restaurants you visit, your music tastes and places you go.
A car can generate about 25 gigabytes of data every hour and as much as 4,000 gigabytes a day, according to some estimates. The data trove in the hands of car makers could be worth as much as $750 billion by 2030, the consulting firm McKinsey has estimated. But consumer groups, aftermarket repair shops and privacy advocates say the data belongs to the car’s owners and the information should be subject to data privacy laws.
Yet Congress has yet to pass comprehensive federal data privacy legislation. And although Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi, chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, has said he would like to see federal privacy legislation passed by the end of the year, it is unclear if that goal can be met.
Financial technology is changing how we do business, and regulators are trying to catch up

          WKU student wins Hearst Multimedia Enterprise Reporting Competition      Comment   Translate Page      

WKU student Skyler Ballard won the third multimedia competition of the 2018-2019 Hearst Journalism Awards Program and qualified for the National Multimedia Championship in June in San Francisco.

Ballard, a senior from Coxs Creek, won the Multimedia Enterprise Reporting Competition for his piece titled En Muerto En Vida published in Wkupj.com. Ballard received a $3,000 award; WKU’s School of Journalism & Broadcasting received a matching grant.

WKU senior Brook Joyner of Chattanooga, Tennessee, finished ninth.

After three of four multimedia competitions, WKU is in third place behind University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The rest of the top 10 is: University of Florida; Arizona State University; Pennsylvania State University; University of Montana; University of Missouri (tie); University of South Carolina (tie); Brigham Young University (tie); San Francisco State University (tie).

The final top three intercollegiate winners will be announced in May.

WKU has won the Hearst Intercollegiate Multimedia Competition for seven straight years. Earlier this spring WKU won the Intercollegiate Photojournalism Competition for the 25th time in the past 30 years.

Often called “The Pulitzers of college journalism,” the Hearst Journalism Awards Program, in its 59th year, consists of five writing, two photojournalism, one radio, two television and four multimedia competitions offering up to $700,000 in scholarships, matching grants and stipends; 105 member universities of the Association of Schools of Journalism and Mass Communication with accredited undergraduate journalism programs are eligible to participate in the Hearst competitions.

The points earned by individual students in the monthly writing, photojournalism, radio, television and multimedia competitions determine each discipline’s Intercollegiate ranking. The winners are those schools with the highest accumulated student points in each category. The overall Intercollegiate winners are the schools with the highest accumulated student points in the writing, photojournalism, broadcast and multimedia competitions.

In 2018, WKU won its fourth overall national championship in the Hearst Journalism Awards Program. WKU won overall titles in 2000, 2001 and 2005 and has finished in the top three overall for nine straight years and in the top eight nationally for 25 straight years.

WKU students have won 15 Hearst individual national championships since 1985 — photojournalism in 1987, 1988, 1991, 1992, 1996, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2014 and 2016; multimedia in 2015; writing in 1985; and radio news in 2006.

          A 4 anni spara e uccide una bambina di 6. La pistola trovata in auto      Comment   Translate Page      

Uccisa a 6 anni, accidentalmente, da un bambino di 4. Con una pistola, trovata sul cruscotto dell'auto. È successo nei pressi di Atlanta, in Georgia. Un'ennesima tragedia delle armi da fuoco negli Stati Uniti.
Secondo una prima ricostruzione della polizia, l'auto non riusciva a mettersi in moto. Così, mentre la madre della bambina è scesa per cercare di capire quale fosse il problema, il piccolo avrebbe allungato la mano verso il cruscotto sul quale si trovava l'arma. E ha sparato.

La bambina è stata trasportata immediatamente in ospedale, ma non c'è stato niente fa fare. "I nostri cuori si spezzano per questa famiglia e speriamo che Dio stenda le sue mani su di loro in questo momento difficile", ha scritto lo sceriffo Gary Gulledge su Facebook. Non e' stata avviata alcuna procedura d'incriminazione.

Nel 2017 sono state 486 le persone uccise accidentalmente da arma da fuoco negli Stati Uniti. Tra il 1999 e il 2017 le vendite di armi da fuoco sono cresciute dell'80%, secondo dati forniti da DataFace, una compagnia di analisi di dati di San Francisco, che ha elaborato le sue stime basandosi sui rapporti dell'Fbi. Secondo altre stime di cui riferiva Usa Today, nel 2016 ogni giorno in media un bambino e' morto negli Usa a causa di armi da fuoco.

La casistica cresce in particolare per bambini sotto i 5 anni, in particolare negli Stati del Sud come Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana e Mississippi, che figurano tra i 10 Stati con il tasso piu' alto di uccisioni accidentali da arma da fuoco.

It started off like one of Michael Avenatti's clients, misty rain, but this is Texas not the Cotswolds, so fine April spray soon turned to fierce downpour followed by wind-whipped, cataclysmic deluge. No kidding, the elemental weather spirits were clearly displeased with preparations for Holy Week.




Or perhaps the explanation's natural. As the earth's magnetic field weakens prior to pole flip, so too does our old enemy, the Weather, strengthen. Regardless, the roads into town were on their way to being flooded and having a rig came in handy.




Safely back at the Compound, we stand resolute while lightning cracks overhead and rain crashes down, watching the flotsam and jetsam of a once prosperous farming community sweep by in the rising waters. Discarded weaves, dead blunt packets, broken toys, malt liquor bottles, carrion and other trash, all the usual offscouring of rural life. 

Is this the Eschaton? The dogs certainly think so, howling above the thunder and the sirens which fill the air. But no, surely this is just a harbinger of things to come. 




Speaking of which, top level bi-coastal elite Democrats don't seem too pleased with the President's plan to ship illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities like San Francisco. It's like MAGA's somehow, haha, rained on their MillSoc parade.




Didn't you get the memo, commies? Open borders begin at home.

Shelter from the storm,

SOBRE LITURGIA

SÍNODO EPISCOPAL DE 1971
EL SACERDOCIO MINISTERIAL

TEXTO DEFINITIVO APROBADO POR LOS OBISPOS SINODALES

Por tanto la Iglesia, fundada sobre los Apóstoles, enviada al mundo y peregrina en él, ha sido instituida para ser el sacramento de la salvación que desde Dios llega hasta nosotros en Cristo
presente y operante como Salvador del mundo, de sal manera que se correspondan entre si el amor ofrecido por Dios a los hombres y la  respuesta de estos. El Espíritu Santo suscita en la Iglesia y por medio de ella impulsos de generosa libertad, mediante los cuales el hombre participa en la misma obra de la creación y redención.

4 (Origen y razón de ser del ministerio jeráquico). La Iglesia constituida mediante el don del Espíritu con una trabazón orgánica, participa de diversos modos las funciones de Cristo Sacerdote, Profeta y Rey para que en nombre suyo y con su poder pueda levar a cabo, como pueblo sacerdotal (cf. LG 10), la misión de salvación.

Por los escritos del Nuevo Testamento aparece claro que a la estructura original inalienable de la Iglesia pertenecen el Apóstol y la comunidad de los fieles, unidos entre sí por una mutua conexión, bajo Cristo Cabeza y bajo el influjo de su Espíritu. Los doce ejercieron, pues, su misión y sus funciones y «no solo tuvieron varios colaboradores en el ministerio» (cf. Hch 6, 2-6; 11, 30; 13, 1; 14, 23; 20, 17; 1 Tes 5, 12-13; Flp 1, 1; Col 4, 11ss.), sino que con el fin de que la misión a ellos confiada se continuase después de su muerte, dejaron a modo de testamento a sus inmediatos colaboradores, el encargo de perfeccionar y confirmar la obra comenzada por ellos (cf. Hch 20, 25-27; 2 Tim 4, 6; 1 Tim 5, 22; 2 Tim 2, 2; Tit 1, 5; S. Clem. Rom, ad Cor. 44,3); encomendándoles que atendieran a toda la grey, en medio de la cual el Espíritu Santo los había puesto para apacentar la Iglesia de Dios (cf. Hch 20,28). Y así establecieron tales colaboradores y les dieron además la orden de que, al morir ellos, otros varones probados se hicieran cargo de su ministerio (cf S. Clem. Rom. ad Cor. 44, 2) (LG 20).

Las Cartas de san Pablo demuestran que él mismo era consciente de obrar en virtud de la misión y del mandato de Cristo (cf. 2 Cor 5, 18ss.). Los poderes, confiados al Apóstol en favor de las Iglesias, eran entregados en cuanto comunicables a otros varones (cf. 2 Tim 1, 6), los cuales a su vez quedaban obligados a entregarlos de nuevo (cf. Tit 1, 3).

Aquella estructura esencial de la Iglesia, constituida por la grey y los pastores expresamente designados (cf. 1 Pe 5, 1-4), fue siempre y sigue siendo normativa, en conformidad con la tradición de la misma Iglesia, mediante tal estructura se logra que la Iglesia no pueda quedar nunca encerrada en sí misma y que esté siempre orientada a Cristo, como a su origen y Cabeza.

Entre los diversos carismas y servicios, únicamente el ministerio sacerdotal del Nuevo Testamento, que continúa el ministerio de Cristo mediador y es distinto del sacerdocio común de los fieles por su esencia y no solo por grado (cf. LG 10), es el que hace perenne la obra esencial de los Apóstoles: en efecto, proclamando eficazmente el Evangelio, reuniendo y guiando la comunidad, perdonando los pecados y sobre todo celebrando la Eucaristía, hace presente a Cristo, Cabeza de la comunidad, en el  ejercicio de su obra de redención humana y de perfecta glorificación a Dios.

Los obispos, pues, y en grado ciertamente subordinado los presbíteros, en virtud del sacramento del Orden que confiere la unción del Espíritu Santo y los configura a Cristo (cf. PO 2), se hacen partícipes de las funciones de santificar, enseñar y regir, cuyo ejercicio es determinado más en concreto por la comunión jerárquica (cf. LG 24, 27 y 28).

El misterio sacerdotal alcanza un punto culminante en la celebración de la Sagrada Eucaristía, que es la fuente y el centro de la unidad de la Iglesia. Solo el sacerdote puede actuar "in persona Christi" para presidir y realizar el banquete sacrificial, en el cual el Pueblo de Dios se asocia: a la oblación de Cristo (cf. LG 28).

El sacerdote es signo del designio previo de Dios, proclamado y hecho eficaz hoy en la Iglesia. El mismo hace sacramentalmente presente a Cristo, Salvador de todo el hombre, entre los hermanos, no solo en su vida personal, sino también social. Es fiador tanto de la inicial proclamación del Evangelio para congregar la Iglesia, como de la incansable renovación de la Iglesia ya congregada. Faltando la presencia y la acción del ministerio, que se recibe por la imposición de manos acompañada de la oración, la Iglesia no puede estar plenamente segura de su fidelidad y de su visible continuidad.

Antífona de entrada Cf. 1Pe 2, 9
Pueblo adquirido por Dios, anunciad las proezas del que os llamó de las tinieblas a su luz maravillosa. Aleluya.
Pópulus acquisitiónis, annuntiáte virtútes eius, qui vos de ténebris vocávit in admirábile lumen suum, allelúia.

Oración colecta
Oh, Dios, que en la solemnidad de la Pascua has dado al mundo los auxilios del cielo, continúa dispensando el perdón a tu Iglesia, para que lo realizado en el tiempo nos sirva para la vida eterna. Por nuestro Señor Jesucristo.
Deus, qui sollemnitáte pascháli caeléstia mundo remédia benígnus operáris, Ecclésiae tuae indulgéntiam proséquere, ut observántia temporális ad vitam profíciat sempitérnam. Per Dóminum.

San Juan I, papa y mártir

Oración colecta propia, y el resto del Sábado de Pascua.

Monición de entrada
Hacemos memoria en esta celebración de san Juan I, papa y mártir, que nació en Italia a finales del siglo V. Víctima de la hostilidad y los celos del emperador arriano Teodorico y obligado por él a permanecer en la ciudad de Rávena, murió allí tal día como hoy en el año 526 a causa de los malos tratos recibidos.

Oración colecta
Oh, Dios, recompensa de las almas fieles, que has consagrado este día con el martirio del papa san Juan, escucha las oraciones de tu pueblo y concédenos imitar la constancia en la fe de aquel cuyos méritos veneramos. Por nuestro Señor Jesucristo.
Deus, fidélium remunerátor animárum, qui hunc diem beáti Ioánnis papae martyrio consecrásti, exáudi preces pópuli tui, et praesta, ut, qui eius mérita venerámur, fídei constántiam imitémur. Per Dóminum.

LITURGIA DE LA PALABRA
Lecturas del Sábado de la IV semana de Pascua (Lec. II).

PRIMERA LECTURA Hch 13, 44-52
Sabed que nos dedicamos a los gentiles
Lectura del libro de los Hechos de los Apóstoles.

El sábado siguiente, casi toda la ciudad acudió a oír la palabra del Señor. Al ver el gentío, los judíos se llenaron de envidia y respondían con blasfemias a las palabras de Pablo. Entonces Pablo y Bernabé dijeron con toda valentía:
«Teníamos que anunciaros primero a vosotros la palabra de Dios; pero como la rechazáis y no os consideráis dignos de la vida eterna, sabed que nos dedicamos a los gentiles. Así nos lo ha mandado el Señor: “Yo te he puesto como luz de los gentiles, para que lleves la salvación hasta el confín de la tierra”».
Cuando los gentiles oyeron esto, se alegraron y alababan la palabra del Señor; y creyeron los que estaban destinados a la vida eterna.
La palabra del Señor se iba difundiendo por toda la región. Pero los judíos incitaron a las señoras distinguidas, adoradoras de Dios, y a los principales de la ciudad, provocaron una persecución contra Pablo y Bernabé y los expulsaron de su territorio.
Estos sacudieron el polvo de los pies contra ellos y se fueron a Iconio. Los discípulos, por su parte, quedaban llenos de alegría y de Espíritu Santo.

Palabra de Dios.
R. Te alabamos, Señor.

Salmo responsorial Sal 97, 1bcde. 2-3ab. 3cd-4 (R.: 3cd)
R. Los confines de la tierra han contemplado la salvación de nuestro Dios.
Vidérunt omnes términi terrae salutáre Dei nostri.
O bien:Aleluya.

V. Cantad al Señor un cántico nuevo,
porque ha hecho maravillas.
Su diestra le ha dado la victoria,
su santo brazo.
R. Los confines de la tierra han contemplado la salvación de nuestro Dios.
Vidérunt omnes términi terrae salutáre Dei nostri.

V. El Señor da a conocer su salvación,
revela a las naciones su justicia:
se acordó de su misericordia y su fidelidad
en favor de la casa de Israel.
R. Los confines de la tierra han contemplado la salvación de nuestro Dios.
Vidérunt omnes términi terrae salutáre Dei nostri.

V. Los confines de la tierra han contemplado
la victoria de nuestro Dios.
Aclama al Señor, tierra entera;
gritad, vitoread, tocad.
R. Los confines de la tierra han contemplado la salvación de nuestro Dios.
Vidérunt omnes términi terrae salutáre Dei nostri.

Aleluya Jn 8, 31b-32
R.Aleluya, aleluya, aleluya.
V. Si permanecéis en mi palabra –dice el Señor– seréis de verdad discípulos míos y conoceréis la verdad. R.
Si manséritis in sermóne meo, vero discipúli me éritis, et cognoscéritis veritátem, dicit Dóminus.

EVANGELIOJn 14, 7-14
Quien me ha visto a mí ha visto al Padre
Lectura del santo Evangelio según san Juan.
R. Gloria a ti, Señor.

En aquel tiempo, dijo Jesús a sus discípulos:
«Si me conocierais a mí, conoceríais también a mi Padre. Ahora ya lo conocéis y lo habéis visto».
Felipe le dice:
«Señor, muéstranos al Padre y nos basta».
Jesús le replica:
«Hace tanto que estoy con vosotros, ¿y no me conoces, Felipe? Quien me ha visto a mí ha visto al Padre. ¿Cómo dices tú:
“Muéstranos al Padre”? ¿No crees que yo estoy en el Padre, y el Padre en mí? Lo que yo os digo no lo hablo por cuenta propia. El Padre, que permanece en mí, él mismo hace las obras. Creedme: yo estoy en el Padre y el Padre en mí. Si no, creed a las obras.
En verdad, en verdad os digo: el que cree en mí, también él hará las obras que yo hago, y aun mayores, porque yo me voy al Padre. Y lo que pidáis en mi nombre, yo lo haré, para que el Padre sea glorificado en el Hijo. Si me pedís algo en mi nombre, yo lo haré».

Palabra del Señor.
R. Gloria a ti, Señor Jesús.

Del Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica
2614 Cuando Jesús confía abiertamente a sus discípulos el misterio de la oración al Padre, les desvela lo que deberá ser su oración, y la nuestra, cuando haya vuelto, con su humanidad glorificada, al lado del Padre. Lo que es nuevo ahora es "pedir en su Nombre" (Jn 14, 13). La fe en El introduce a los discípulos en el conocimiento del Padre porque Jesús es "el Camino, la Verdad y la Vida" (Jn 14, 6). La fe da su fruto en el amor: guardar su Palabra, sus mandamientos, permanecer con El en el Padre que nos ama en El hasta permanecer en nosotros. En esta nueva Alianza, la certeza de ser escuchados en nuestras peticiones se funda en la oración de Jesús (cf Jn 14, 13-14).

Oración de los fieles
Oremos a Dios, nuestro Padre, con la certeza de que Jesucristo resucitado intercede por nosotros.
-Para que Cristo, luz y salvación de todos los pueblos, derrame el fuego del Espíritu Santo sobre toda la Iglesia. Roguemos al Señor.
-Para que todos los que tienen autoridad en el mundo la ejerciten con espíritu de servicio a los hombres. Roguemos al Señor.
-Para que la caridad y entrega de los cristianos manifieste a los que sufren el amor que Dios les tiene. Roguemos al Señor.
-Para que conceda el don de la fe a los que aún no reconocen a Cristo como Hijo de Dios y Salvador de los hombres. Roguemos al Señor.
ESCUCHA, Padre Santo, las oraciones que te presentamos en el nombre de Jesucristo, tu Hijo, que vive y reina contigo por los siglos de los siglos.

Oración sobre las ofrendas
Te pedimos, Señor, que, en tu bondad, santifiques estos dones, aceptes la ofrenda de este sacrificio espiritual y nos transformes en oblación perenne. Por Jesucristo, nuestro Señor.
Propítius, Dómine, quaesumus, haec dona sanctífica, et, hóstiae spiritális oblatióne suscépta, nosmetípsos tibi pérfice munus aetérnum. Per Christum.

PLEGARIA EUCARÍSTICA IV.

Antífona de comunión Jn 17, 24
Padre, este es mi deseo: que los que me has dado estén conmigo donde yo estoy y contemplen mi gloria, la que me diste. Aleluya.
Pater, quos dedísti mihi, volo ut ubi sum ego, et illi sint mecum, ut vídeant claritátem quam dedísti mihi, allelúia.

Oración después de la comunión
Señor, después de recibir el don sagrado del sacramento, te pedimos humildemente que nos haga crecer en el amor lo que tu Hijo nos mandó realizar en memoria suya. Él, que vive y reina por los siglos de los siglos.
Súmpsimus, Dómine, sacri dona mystérii, humíliter deprecántes, ut, quae in sui commemoratiónem nos Fílius tuus fácere praecépit, in nostrae profíciant caritátis augméntum. Per Christum.

The editor probably picked Tesla as comparable because it's a heavily shorted stock. Apple would be on the other side of the spectrum, with very light short interest. And while you're right that the float for LYFT isn't in the same range as that of Tesla or Apple, the editor properly took that into account above by just looking at the <em>percentage of floated shares</em> shorted.

          4/13 From 1950 Through the 1970’s: Roberts Makes History (maybe); 10 In A Row For Law; Balky Rule; Game Stories; HBD Doug & Ricardo      Comment   Translate Page      
  • 1954 - Seven years after Jackie Robinson broke baseball's color barrier, second baseman Curt Roberts made his major league debut during the season opener at Forbes Field and became the first African American to play for the Pirates (although a good case can be made for Carlos Bernier, who came up in 1953, but was considered Latino rather than black). The former Kansas City Monarch tripled off Robin Roberts in the first inning as the Bucs beat the Phillies, 4-2, by scoring four times in the eighth frame. It was the first time the Pirates had ever opened the season at Forbes Field, drawing 32,294 fans. It was their 11th straight home opener win, a streak that would end the following year. There was a little pre-game merriment as three-year-old Leslie Blair, Honus Wagner’s granddaughter, was slated to throw out the first pitch after the City had awarded a plaque to Hans’ daughter. She was struck by stage fright and never let loose the horsehide, forcing the umps to begin the game without its traditional opening.

  • 1962 - The Mets played their first Home Opener against the Bucs with only 12,447 fans at the Polo Grounds on a cold, drizzly day. It was Friday the 13th, and the date cursed the home team as the Pirates scored the winning run on two eighth-inning wild pitches thrown by Ray Diavault, scoring Dick Groat, who had opened with a walk, to defeat New York, 4-3. The Pirates had eight hits, with five coming from the 6-7-8 hitters (Smoky Burgess, Don Hoak & Billy Maz), who accounted for two runs and three RBI. Tom Sturdivant went seven innings for the win with ElRoy Face working the last two frames for the save. 
  • 1963 - The Pirates clobbered the Reds 12-4 at Crosley Field, but the big story was on the bump. The league decided to clamp down on balks and a record seven were called in the game, including a MLB high of four on Bob Friend (the mark lasted a month until the Braves’ Bob Shaw was caught five times), who was nonplussed by the calls. He admitted that he never adhered to the full stop rule because it had never been called before. An MLB record 924 balks were rung up during the season after umpires were instructed to enforce the complete, one-second stop during the wind-up. As for the game, three Bucs - Ducky Schofield, Bob Skinner and Billy Maz - had three hits; Roberto Clemente and Friend had two knocks each. Pete Rose collected his first MLB hit during the game, a triple. 
  • 1964 - IF Doug Strange was born in Greenville, South Carolina. He ended his nine-year MLB run off the bench in Pittsburgh, batting .173 in 90 games. He spent a couple of seasons as minor-league depth, then joined the Marlins as a scout for a couple of more years before coming over to Pittsburgh’s Baseball Operations section in 2002. He’s now a Special Assistant to the GM.

  • 1966 - Vern Law won his 10th straight game by a 6-0 count over the Braves at Atlanta Stadium. The Deacon gave up four hits, no walks and fanned four, never allowing a runner beyond first base. Willie Stargell had a homer and three RBI; Donn Clendenon added a two-run blow. Law would miss a month after that with an injury, lose the next outing in May and finish 12-8/4.05 on the campaign. He had one more year left in the tank. 
  • 1968 - Al McBean went the distance to claim a 2-1 victory over San Francisco and Gaylord Perry at Candlestick Park. McBean did it all; he tossed a three-hitter and even singled in the winning run with two outs in the seventh inning. The key play was The Great One gunning down Willie Mays at third to keep the lid on a potential rally by the Giants. Per BR Bullpen, Willie Mays recalled being caught going from first to third just once in his career, and it was on this day. "Roberto Clemente threw me out on a bang-bang play at third. I should have remembered what a tremendous arm he had" later explained the sadder-but-wiser Say Hey Kid. 
  • 1970 - LHP Ricardo Rincon was born in Cuitlahuac, Mexico. Rincon, signed as a veteran of the Mexican leagues, pitched for the Pirates from 1997-98. He went 4-10-50/3.17 with 135 K in 125 IP. Rincon was part of a combined no-hitter on July 12th, 1997 when Francisco Cordova threw nine innings of hitless ball and Rincon pitched a clean 10th. He was traded for Brian Giles in 1998.
  • 1976 - The Bucs promised a Lumber Company for the fans, and came through in the home opener at TRS with a 14-4 win over St. Louis, hammering out thirteen hits to go with twelve walks. Dave “The Cobra” Parker homered and collected five RBI, Al “Scoops” Oliver had three hits and three RBI while Manny Sanguillen had the only three-walk game of his career and touched home three times.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Trump considers releasing ‘illegal immigrants’ in Democratic strongholds      Comment   Translate Page      

Donald Trump has said he is considering releasing “illegal immigrants” in Democratic strongholds to punish his opponents for inaction on border security. The President’s remarks came just hours after White House and Homeland Security officials insisted the idea had been rejected as fast as it had been proposed. “Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only,” Mr Trump tweeted. He added: “The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy – so this should make them very happy!” He told reporters later on Friday he was “strongly looking at” the idea. “They’re always saying they have open arms. Let’s see if they have open arms,” he said. His comments, which appeared to catch officials at the Department of Homeland Security off guard, came as critics condemned news that the White House had at least twice considered a plan to release detained immigrants into so-called sanctuary cities as an effort to use migrants as pawns to go after political opponents. “Sanctuary cities” are places where local authorities do not cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, denying information or resources that would help ICE round up for deportation people living in the country illegally. They include New York City and San Francisco, home city of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who on Friday called the idea “unworthy of the presidency of the United States and disrespectful of the challenges that we face as a country, as a people, to address who we are — a nation of immigrants”. The idea of pressing immigration authorities to embrace the plan was discussed in November and then again in February as the Trump administration struggled with a surge of migrants at the border, according to sources. Homeland Security and ICE lawyers quickly rejected the proposal, the sources said, and it was dropped on the grounds that it was complicated, too expensive and a misuse of funds. Earlier on Friday, both the Department of Homeland Security and a White House official insisted, in nearly identical statements, that the plan was dead on arrival. “This was just a suggestion that was floated and rejected, which ended any further discussion,” the White House official said. The plan, which was first reported by the Washington Post, is one of many ideas considered by an increasingly frustrated White House in recent months as Mr Trump has railed against the growing number of Central American migrant families crossing the southern border. Officials say they are running out of options, and have proposed and recycled numerous ideas that have never come to fruition. Mr Trump in recent weeks has discussed the idea of renewing his administration’s controversial family separation policy. And he and aides are weighing forcing asylum-seeking families to choose between being detained together as their cases make their way through the courts or sending their children to government-run shelters.

The post Trump considers releasing ‘illegal immigrants’ in Democratic strongholds appeared first on London Glossy Post.


          OpenStreetMap US Board Election Results      Comment   Translate Page      

[repost from the OpenStreetMapUS blog]

The OpenStreetMap US board elections for 2019 have completed! As an election observer, I was tasked with making sure the elections were impartial and not unduly influenced, and that the vote counting was done properly.

This was an unusual election in that we had two separate questions:

The first question was to fill the open seat vacated by Maggie Cawley, who resigned to take on the role of Executive Director. The second question was a simple confirmatory vote of approval for the remaining four board members. Given that there was no election held for the board back in March (because only five candidates were nominated for five open seats), the board decided it was appropriate to hold a confirmatory vote since we were already holding an election anyway for the open seat.

The results of the election are as follows:

The existing board members were confirmed overwhelmingly, with 98 voting “yes” and 6 voting “no”. In the final round of ranked choice voting Minh Nguyễn was elected to the open seat. Congratulations Minh!

Analysis

If you don’t care about the nerdy mechanics of this Ranked Choice Voting election, you can stop reading now. But if you’re interested in a deeper analysis of the results, read on:

For OpenStreetMap US elections, we use Ranked Choice Voting (RCV), which means that each voter has the opportunity to rank all the candidates in order of preference. When RCV is used to elect multiple seats at the same time, it’s also known as Single Transferable Vote (STV), and when it’s used to elect a single seat (as was the case in this election), it’s sometimes called Instant Runoff Voting (IRV).

Under Instant Runoff Voting, if no candidate has a majority of the votes at first, the candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated, and the votes for that candidate are then transferred to the second choices on those ballots. After the transfer, if there is still no candidate with a majority, then the cycle repeats: the remaining candidate with the fewest votes gets eliminated, and their votes are transferred to the highest-ranked candidate on those ballots that is still in the running. This process continues until a candidate reaches a majority of votes, or until there is only one candidate left standing.

Under our system of Ranked Choice Voting, voters are not required to rank all the candidates, so it’s possible that their ballots will become “exhausted” if there are no more candidates still in the running that have been ranked by that voter.

Here is the graphical output from the OpaVote vote tallying software, which shows the results at each round of counting.

This IRV election had some interesting characteristics. First of all, there was no majority winner until the final round, showing the necessity of using Ranked Choice Voting. Had we used a single-round plurality voting system (often called First Past the Post), the leading candidate could have won a seat on the board with only 29% of the votes. In the end, the final tally was very close, with Minh Nguyễn finishing with 51.7% of the vote compared to Daniela Waltersdorfer’s 48.3%.

Another interesting feature of this election was that Nguyễn was 2nd place in the early rounds of voting, only to come from behind to win in the final round. This is exactly the kind of outcome that IRV is designed to make possible, but in most cases where IRV is used in practice, generally the leader in the first round of voting ends up winning in the final round. It is only when there are two (or three) evenly matched candidates that IRV vote transfers end up making a difference.

In the final round, we can see that IRV guarantees a majority winner, with Nguyễn having 51.7% to Waltersdorfer’s 48.3%. But this was only a majority of votes that were still in play at the final round: almost 15% of the ballots were “exhausted” in the final round, meaning that those voters did not rank either Nguyễn or Waltersdorfer on their ballots. If we include those exhausted ballots in the totals, then Nguyễn got 44% of the vote compared to Waltersdorfer’s 41%. But we can still say that Nguyễn won a majority of the voters who still had a preference in the final round.

One last interesting feature of this election is that Nguyễn and Martijn van Exel were tied for 2nd place in the second to last round. Under the IRV rules we used for this election, in order to decide which candidate to eliminate when there is a tie, we look back into the previous rounds to see which candidate was ahead. Since Nguyễn was ahead of van Exel in every previous round, we use that information to decide that van Exel should be eliminated.

Alternative scenarios

But some variations on IRV rules (for example, the rules used by the cities of San Francisco and Oakland) specify that tied candidates should be eliminated randomly. For large civic elections with hundreds of thousands of votes, that’s probably fine because exact ties are extremely rare. But in our OSM elections it’s better to use our more deterministic way of breaking ties, since they are likely to happen more often.

But what if we had used these random-tie-breaking rules and if Nguyễn had lost the coin flip, then what would the outcome have been if it was Waltersdorfer and van Exel in the final round?

If we look at the raw votes file, we can examine the ballots and see what would have happened in this alternate scenario. See here to learn how to understand the .blt file format used by OpaVote.

To figure out what the tally would be in the final round between two candidates, we can ignore the rankings for all the other candidates, and merely look at the relative ordering of the two finalists on each ballot.

So, if Nguyễn had been eliminated instead of van Exel, we find that there are 43 ballots that ranked Waltersdorfer ahead of van Exel, and 49 that ranked van Exel ahead (with 12 exhausted ballots). So had van Exel not been eliminated in the tiebreaker in the second-to-last round, he would have gone on to win overall.

Again, this shows that in an election between three evenly-matched candidates, small differences in the rankings can produce surprisingly different outcomes.

Condorcet winner

IRV is not the only alternative voting method out there, and one of the other possible voting techniques is the Condorcet Method. From the voter’s point of view, Condorcet is similar: on your ballot you rank candidates in order of preference. But unlike IRV where we progressively eliminate candidates in a series of runoffs, under Condorcet we would look at each possible head-to-head matchup of the candidates, to find out which candidate would beat every other candidate.

If you spend enough time learning about alternative election methods, you’ll eventually hear one of the few criticisms of IRV, which is that it can sometimes fail to elect the candidate who is the “Condorcet winner”.

In our election, Nguyễn narrowly defeated Waltersdorfer in the final round, but had we used different tie-breaking rules, then van Exel would have been the one to narrowly defeat Waltersdorfer. So this left me wondering: is it possible that van Exel was the Condorcet winner, but our IRV election failed to elect him?

The way to find that out is to see who would have won in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup between Nguyễn and van Exel. Note that there are no IRV rules that would have resulted in this matchup in the final round; Waltersdorfer was ahead in every round of counting until the end, so there is no way she would have been eliminated earlier, resulting in this matchup.

If we look at the raw ballots again, we find that there are 57 ballots where Nguyễn was ranked ahead of van Exel, and 38 where van Exel was ahead of Nguyễn (with 9 ballots that did not rank either one of them). So Nguyễn would win the head-to-head matchup, making him the clear Condorcet winner, as well as the IRV winner.

Final thoughts

Again, I’d like to congratulate Minh for winning election to the OpenStreetMap US board, and I’d also like to congratulate all the other candidates who ran. One of the great things about Ranked Choice Voting is that we don’t have to worry about the “spoiler effect”, whereby one candidate choosing to run could end up splitting the vote and causing another like-minded candidate to lose. Under the RCV system, there’s no harm in having many candidates running; if anything, more candidates brings more attention to our elections and builds a healthier democracy within OSM. So for those candidates who didn’t win this time, don’t be discouraged! We hope you’ll stand again for election next year!

          Taxed Rockies, Giants face quick turnaround after 18-inning affair      Comment   Translate Page      
The Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants have exhausted their bullpens in a two-day pitchers' duel that's lasted 27 innings Thursday, Friday and even spilling over into Saturday morning. Colorado left-hander Kyle Freeland and San Francisco lefty Madison Bumgarner are scheduled to get the ball Saturday afternoon when the National League West rivals make a quick turnaround from Friday's 3-2, 18-inning marathon win for the Giants. In Major League Baseball's longest game of the season, Brandon Belt doubled and scored the winning run when Rockies catcher Chris Iannetta was deemed to have pulled his foot off home plate on a potential force play that resulted from Erik Kratz's one-out grounder in the last of the 18th.

Brandon Belt doubled to lead off the 18th inning and scored on Erik Kratz's one-out, fielder's choice grounder, as the San Francisco Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 3-2 Friday night. After Belt doubled and two batters were intentionally walked to load the bases, the Rockies went to a five-man infield, bringing in center fielder Ian Desmond. Kratz hit a slow grounder to Desmond, who had to run to his left before throwing home.

          California Is Trying to Turn College Health Centers Into Abortion Clinics with Taxpayer Dollars (Again)       Comment   Translate Page      

Last week, the California State Senate Health Committee approved in a 7-3 vote Senate Bill 24, known as the “College Student Right to Access Act.” This bill would amend the state’s public health code to require student health care clinics at all 34 California public colleges and universities to “offer abortion by medication techniques”—a.k.a “the abortion pill”—starting on January 1, 2023.

You may remember a similar bill (SB 320) that went forward last year, sponsored by the same senator, Connie Leyva (D-Chino). Thankfully, this was vetoed by then Democrat Governor Jerry Brown, who saw the mandate as “unnecessary” since “the services required by this bill are widely available off-campus.” In his veto statement he says that “according to a study supposed by supporters of this legislation, the average distance to abortion providers in campus communities varies from five to seven miles, not an unreasonable distance.”

The report he is referring to was commissioned by the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), which is advocating in favor of the campus abortion mandate! But thankfully, a distance of five to seven miles was too short even for Governor Brown, and only showed how college campuses are targeted by the abortion industry.

SB 24 and last year’s SB 320 are virtually identical, with some changes in grant amounts and deadlines for implementation; other than that, they are the same in function. This means Sen. Leyva and other sponsors of the bill made no effort to fix the serious flaws with this type of mandate raised by both sides of the debate. Yes, even the universities themselves are apprehensive!

To bring this bill up for a second time without addressing its many serious flaws shows a reckless disregard for the 400,000 young women on these 34 public campuses.

In a previous blog, you can see what potential risks and liabilities would come with forcing colleges to dispense the abortion pill. Just two concerns (among many) about SB 24 are that this type of mandate once again has vague funding language and has no mention of support for women who choose not to abort and instead choose to parent the child.

Like the previously failed mandate, SB 24 claims it would only take effect after $10.2 million in private funds have been raised for the costs of equipment and “readiness” as the legislation states, but the language of the bill leaves open the possibility of taxpayer-funded abortion after 2023. It provides no safeguards to prohibit state funds or student fees from paying for the ongoing support of the program. Public funding of abortion is something we already know that a majority of Americans strongly oppose, yet SB 24 takes no precautions to prevent that.

In addition, this legislation offers no maternal assistance for women who choose not to abort! It just supports abortions. The Institute for Women’s Policy Research found that over a quarter of all undergraduate students are raising dependent children—yet no assistance is offered for them. Parenthood and education are compatible, and there are plenty of women who can prove that. To have a bill that purposefully goes out of its way to take away women’s children rather than help them raise their babies and continue their education is a slap in the face to “women’s empowerment” and grossly disregards the human dignity of the unborn.

Any abortion, no matter what stage of pregnancy it occurs at, is a life-changing experience. Even an early-stage chemical abortion can be quite traumatic. What makes chemical abortions unique from surgical abortions is that the mother will have to see and dispose of the remains of her aborted child. It is more than obvious that mental trauma would occur to a young woman who sees her abortion take place in her college dorm room or in a student health center bathroom. Is this really a good thing for a young college woman? I think not.

All in all, this type of bill could care less for women—it only cares about expanding the business of abortion.

Abortion proponents consider this mandate as model legislation for other states to follow, and California is vying to be the first state to implement it.

The California State Senate Health Committee passed the bill. It will now be referred to the State Senate’s Education Committee before going before the full Senate for a vote.

Sitting California governor Gavin Newsom has already insinuated his support for the bill, and this has given activists for SB 24 more optimism. However, it is still unknown how much support will actually come from the public universities themselves who remain apprehensive of the considerable liability that they would have to take on.

To take action on this reckless bill, you can contact California legislators on our action page.

Inspired by the Golden Horn (Chrysoceras) of Istanbul's Bosphorus Strait, the one that links Europe to Asia, John C. Fremont thought it befitting that the charming city's majestic bay have an equally memorable name and promptly christened it "The Golden Gate". After years of deliberations, construction finally commenced on the much-needed bridge across the Bay on January 5, 1933. The Majestic "one of its kind' bridge - built at the cost of millions of dollars and eleven lives that were lost during construction - was opened to vehicular traffic more than four years later, on May 28, 1937. The Golden gate Bridge remains one of the most photographed tourist attractions in the world, and has come to symbolize San Francisco. Yet, the glamorous city has many other fascinating attractions that are as alluring as the Bridge itself. For instance, San Francisco's Chinatown is one of the world's biggest oriental settlements outside of China and few places in the world are better known than the Fisherman's Wharf. This fascinating DVD from a2zcds.com provides a delightful peek at San Francisco as it was in the early part of the 20th century and explains why millions proudly call it home.

          Can This Breakfast Cereal Help Save The Planet?      Comment   Translate Page      
This past week in San Francisco, food writers and environmentalists gathered to taste some breakfast cereal. This particular cereal had an ingredient — the milled seeds of a little-known plant called Kernza — that's the result of a radical campaign to reinvent agriculture and reverse an environmentally disastrous choice made by our distant ancestors. The campaign began 40-some years ago with a scientist-environmentalist named Wes Jackson . He argued that humanity took a wrong turn, thousands of years ago, when it came to rely on crops like wheat and rice for basic sustenance. These "annual" crops need replanting each year, "which means that if you're going to get your seed to germinate, you've got to destroy the vegetation at the surface," clearing away anything that might compete with the fragile seedlings, Jackson said . As farmers use tillage tools or herbicides to get rid of competing vegetation, they inevitably wipe away habitat for birds and insects. Bare soil washes away and

          Microsoft issues security alert over cyber attack: Reports      Comment   Translate Page      

San Francisco, April 14 (IANS) Microsoft has alerted some of its webmail users of possible hacker attacks that could access their email accounts illegally, media reports said.

In an email notification to some affected users on Saturday, Microsoft said it became aware of an issue involving unauthorised access to some customers' web-based email accounts by cybercriminals.

"We have identified that a Microsoft support agent's credentials were compromised, enabling individuals outside Microsoft to access information within your Microsoft email account" between Jan. 1 and March 28," Xinhua quoted Microsoft as saying in the email.

The unauthorised access could have allowed unauthorized parties to view or access information of Microsoft email user accounts, such as email address, folder names, and the subject lines of emails, it said.

However, the software giant said the content of attached documents to emails would not be read or viewed, and it did not specify how many users of its Outlook.com mail service were affected.

"Microsoft regrets any inconvenience caused by this issue," said the company, recommending that affected users reset their login passwords.

The company assured its users that it has immediately disabled the compromised credentials to prevent their use for any further unauthorised access.

Microsoft has offered contact information for its data protection officer to help possible hacking victims to better protect their email accounts.

Shameless Plug: Starterless Sour Bread

In case you missed my prior posts: if you're tired of gooey starters that die in the refrigerator, fail to raise your loaves, get moldy or generally don't do what they're supposed to, give this a try.

This starterless sour bread formula was developed by the USDA Eastern Regional Research Center in Wyndmoor, PA. It was developed several years after the landmark Kline & Sugihara study at the Western Regional Research Center in Albany, California which identified the bacteria found in San Francisco sourdough.

The recipe does not use a traditional starter or sourdough culture. In addition to the standard sourdough ingredients (flour, water and salt) it uses instant dry yeast, vinegar and a source of acid whey such as plain yogurt (strain the yogurt through a strainer into a collection vessel). Caution: avoid Greek yogurt which has had the whey removed.

If it's sour you're looking for, here it is. I have found this recipe to be a very authentic replica of old-school San Francisco sourdough.

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

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

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

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

Bring them all.

          Coffee Robots Are Not Causing Homeless People To Starve      Comment   Translate Page      

Authored by Art Carden via The American Institute for Economic Research,

A couple of months ago, this tweet made the social media rounds:

The group of “Starving Jobless Homeless” people huddled outdoors next to a “Fully Robotic Coffeeshop” is jarring. The coffee shop, CafeX, features “Coffee from the best local roasters crafted with precision using recipes designed by top baristas.” It’s an image of the coming techno-dystopia in which robots take our jobs and leave everyone who isn’t a capital-owning plutocrat to starve in the streets, no?

No. There are other things at play here. One reply to the tweet tagged John Stossel and diagnosed the problem immediately: the minimum wage in San Francisco is $15 per hour. That is a wage at which, apparently, the people in the picture cannot be profitably employed and which induces firms to look harder for ways to do with capital what was formerly profitable to do with labor.

Labor and Capital

“But firms will want to innovate and adopt new technology no matter what,” you say. Maybe: it depends on what the technological possibilities are. If labor is extremely abundant, then the low-cost, most efficient production method might be labor-intensive rather than capital-intensive.

Think about why so many people don’t buy the absolute-best top-of-the-line computers or smartphones. You probably don’t. Consider the Cray XT5m supercomputer system, which “starts around $500,000, takes advantage of the hardware and software advances of the Cray XT5 supercomputer, the basis of the petascale system currently in use at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory.”

That’s a heck of a machine, and if you’re doing particle physics, it’s probably nice to have. If all you need to do is check your email and manage a few spreadsheets, then it’s overkill. Just as you wouldn’t expect a firm to buy a Cray XT5m for everyone in the office and just as you probably don’t keep one in the sewing room from which to check email and play Minecraft, firms aren’t going to go for hyper-tech when that tech is hyper-expensive.

Again, firms will choose the lowest-cost way to produce a good in the interest of maximizing profits. When we use legislation like minimum wages and workplace safety rules and other things to increase the price of labor relative to what would obtain in the free market, we nudge firms toward replacing people with machines — as CafeX does, replacing human baristas with mechanical ones.

That gives us the phenomenon in the picture: a mass of people who are either unemployed or who have given up on the labor market, huddled outside a robotic coffee bar.

The same principles also explain why they are without housing. First, building new housing in San Francisco is notoriously difficult. Reason discusses an amusing-if-it-weren’t-so-tragic case in which the owner of a laundromat is being blocked from turning it into an eight-story apartment complex because the laundromat is “historic.”

Making it difficult for people to build new housing reduces the supply of housing, which drives up prices. It also changes the composition of housing: high regulatory costs that make it hard to build any kind of housing will induce substitution away from modest housing and toward luxury housing.

Changes in Relative Prices

Economists call this the Alchian-Allen effect after the economists Armen Alchian and William Allen. Adding a fixed cost to two similar goods will induce substitution toward the higher-quality good because it changes the relative price of that good.

The average quality of oranges in Florida, for example, is lower than the average quality of oranges in Vancouver for this reason. Suppose good oranges have a price of a dollar and bad oranges have a price of 50 cents. This means good oranges cost two bad oranges; a bad orange costs half a good orange. If it costs 50 cents to ship an orange — any orange — from Florida to Vancouver, it changes the relative price. Good oranges are relatively cheaper: with a total cost of $1.50 including shipping compared to $1 for bad oranges, good oranges only cost 1.5 bad oranges. The relative price of bad oranges rises, from half a good orange to 2/3 of a good orange. (The numbers in this example are from an example in Steven Landsburg’s textbook Price Theory and Applications.)

People substitute toward higher-quality oranges and away from lower-quality ones. Before you say, “Wouldn’t people always buy the highest-quality oranges?,” note that there is a price difference. Then look in your own fridge or on your own kitchen counter. You probably don’t have the absolutely highest-quality produce imaginable on hand.

Now, replace good and bad oranges with luxury and modest apartments and replace the fixed cost of shipping with a fixed cost of building. Costly regulations make all housing absolutely more expensive, but they make luxury housing relatively cheaper.

If you’re still not convinced, think about hiring a babysitter for $40 and going on a date. Would you go to Taco Bell? Or would you go somewhere nicer? Adding the price of the babysitter means going to Taco Bell and spending $10 each would cost you $60. Or you could go to a very nice restaurant and spend $40 each for a total of $120.

Without the cost of the babysitter, a trip to the very nice restaurant costs you four trips to Taco Bell. But the trip to the very nice restaurant is cheaper in terms of forgone trips to Taco Bell once you add the cost of the babysitter, which will cost $40 no matter what you do.

As the San Francisco Tenants Union explains, “In San Francisco, most tenants are covered by rent control.” Rent control is a standard example in introductory economics classes of a policy that hurts the people we ostensibly want to help. The Swedish economist Assar Lindbeck has said that “in many cases rent control appears to be the most efficient technique presently known to destroy a city — except for bombing.”

By holding prices below what the market will bear, rent-control ordinances ensure housing shortages, where, at the controlled price, people want more housing than firms and landlords are willing to provide.

Furthermore, they find themselves in a cat-and-mouse game with regulators because landlords and tenants move toward competition on non-price margins. Quality, to use just one example, falls because of rent control and necessitates, in the eyes of many activists, even more regulation.

The additional regulation raises the cost of providing housing, which reduces the supply of housing, which puts pressure on prices and thus leads to more and more calls for rent control. The outcome is grotesque: all the new construction is high-end luxury housing while the rent-controlled housing deteriorates more quickly.

Adam Smith famously wrote that “there is a great deal of ruin in a nation.” Does the picture of a huddled mass of homeless people outside a robotic coffee shop suggest the ruins of late-stage capitalism? I think not.

It represents instead the “great deal of ruin” policymakers create when they make policy as if the laws of supply and demand are optional.

Rosalía arrasa en el festival de Coachella#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F2019_04_14%2F365954

El festival de Coachella, el más cool y fashion del año (no sólo por su música, también por sus esperados looks), por fin ha dado comienzo, y lo ha hecho por todo lo alto con una gran actuación de Rosalía. Su música, que combina flamenco y sonido urbano, está dando la vuelta a al mundo, y en el primer día la cantante ha arrasado con su concierto.

Rosalía

Las actuaciones de la cantante catalana también son muy comentadas por sus estilismos. Para la ocasión Rosalía se ha decantado por un llamativo look en color rojo. Un cazadora corta de vinilo rojo a juego con el pantalón ancho de Laroxx y un sujetador negro drapeado con detalles de cadenas doradas de Laurel DeWitt, combinado con unas sneakers vintage de Chanel. Un estilismo responsabilidad de Samantha Burkhart, su nueva estilista (también lo es de Billie Eilish).

Rosalía comienza así su gira "El mal Querer", que la llevará por ciudades como Nueva York, San Francisco y Los Ángeles.

Pero ha habido más actuaciones: Cardi B, Selena Gómez y el rapero Ozuna, aparecieron de manera inesperada con DJ Snake para sorprender con una actuación estelar y cantar juntos el tema "Taki Taki", que ya acumula más de 1.257 millones de reproducciones en Yotube. Como veis una edición muy latina.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Día litúrgico: Domingo de Ramos (C)

Texto del Evangelio (Lc 22,14—23,56): 

Llegada la hora, se sentó Jesús con sus discípulos, y les dijo: «He deseado enormemente comer esta comida pascual con vosotros antes de padecer, porque os digo que ya no la volveré a comer hasta que se cumpla en el Reino de Dios». Y tomando una copa, dio gracias y dijo: «Tomad esto, repartidlo entre vosotros; porque os digo que no beberé desde ahora del fruto de la vid hasta que venga el Reino de Dios». 

Y tomando pan, dio gracias; lo partió y se lo dio diciendo: «Esto es mi cuerpo, que se entrega por vosotros; haced esto en memoria mía». Después de cenar, hizo lo mismo con la copa diciendo: «Esta copa es la Nueva Alianza sellada con mi sangre, que se derrama por vosotros. Pero mirad: la mano del que me entrega está con la mía en la mesa. Porque el Hijo del Hombre se va según lo establecido; pero ¡ay de ése que lo entrega!».

Ellos empezaron a preguntarse unos a otros quién de ellos podía ser el que iba a hacer eso. Los discípulos se pusieron a disputar sobre quién de ellos debía ser tenido como el primero. Jesús les dijo: «Los reyes de los gentiles los dominan y los que ejercen la autoridad se hacen llamar bienhechores. Vosotros no hagáis así, sino que el primero entre vosotros pórtese como el menor, y el que gobierne, como el que sirve. Porque, ¿quién es más, el que está en la mesa o el que sirve?, ¿verdad que el que está en la mesa? Pues yo estoy en medio de vosotros como el que sirve. Vosotros sois los que habéis perseverado conmigo en mis pruebas, y yo os transmito el Reino como me lo transmitió mi Padre a mí: comeréis y beberéis a mi mesa en mi Reino, y os sentaréis en tronos para regir a las doce tribus de Israel».

Y añadió: «Simón, Simón, mira que Satanás os ha reclamado para cribaros como trigo. Pero yo he pedido por ti para que tu fe no se apague. Y tú, cuando te recobres, da firmeza a tus hermanos». Él le contestó: «Señor, contigo estoy dispuesto a ir incluso a, la cárcel y a la muerte». Jesús le replicó: «Te digo, Pedro, que no cantará hoy el gallo antes que tres veces hayas negado conocerme». 

Y dijo a todos: «Cuando os envié sin bolsa ni alforja, ni sandalias, ¿os faltó algo?». Contestaron: «Nada». Él añadió: «Pero ahora, el que tenga bolsa que la coja, y lo mismo la alforja; y el que no tiene espada que venda su manto y compre una. Porque os aseguro que tiene que cumplirse en mí lo que está escrito: ‘Fue contado con los malhechores’. Lo que se refiere a mí toca a su fin». Ellos dijeron: «Señor, aquí hay dos espadas». Él les contestó: «Basta».

Y salió Jesús como de costumbre al monte de los Olivos, y lo siguieron los discípulos. Al llegar al sitio, les dijo: «Orad, para no caer en la tentación». Él se arrancó de ellos, alejándose como a un tiro de piedra y arrodillado, oraba diciendo: «Padre, si quieres, aparta de mí ese cáliz. Pero que no se haga mi voluntad, sino la tuya». Y se le apareció un ángel del cielo que lo animaba. En medio de su angustia oraba con más insistencia. Y le bajaba el sudor a goterones, como de sangre, hasta el suelo. Y, levantándose de la oración, fue hacia sus discípulos, los encontró dormidos por la pena, y les dijo: «¿Por qué dormís? Levantaos y orad, para no caer en la tentación».

Todavía estaba hablando, cuando aparece gente: y los guiaba el llamado Judas, uno de los Doce. Y se acercó a besar a Jesús. Jesús le dijo: «Judas, ¿con un beso entregas al Hijo del Hombre?». Al darse cuenta los que estaban con él de lo que iba a pasar, dijeron: «Señor, ¿herimos con la espada?». Y uno de ellos hirió al criado del Sumo Sacerdote, y le cortó la oreja derecha. Jesús intervino diciendo: «Dejadlo, basta». Y, tocándole la oreja, lo curó. Jesús dijo a los sumos sacerdotes y a los oficiales del templo, y a los ancianos que habían venido contra Él: «¿Habéis salido con espadas y palos a la caza de un bandido? A diario estaba en el templo con vosotros, y no me echasteis mano. Pero ésta es vuestra hora: la del poder de las tinieblas».

Ellos lo prendieron, se lo llevaron y lo hicieron entrar en casa del sumo sacerdote. Pedro lo seguía desde lejos. Ellos encendieron fuego en medio del patio, se sentaron alrededor y Pedro se sentó entre ellos. Al verlo una criada sentado junto a la lumbre, se le quedó mirando y le dijo: «También éste estaba con Él». Pero él lo negó diciendo: «No lo conozco, mujer». Poco después lo vio otro y le dijo: «Tú también eres uno de ellos». Pedro replicó: «Hombre, no lo soy». Pasada cosa de una hora, otro insistía: «Sin duda, también éste estaba con Él, porque es galileo». Pedro contestó: «Hombre, no sé de qué hablas». Y estaba todavía hablando cuando cantó un gallo. El Señor, volviéndose, le echó una mirada a Pedro, y Pedro se acordó de la palabra que el Señor le había dicho: «Antes de que cante hoy el gallo, me negarás tres veces». Y, saliendo afuera, lloró amargamente. 

Y los hombres que sujetaban a Jesús se burlaban de Él dándole golpes. Y, tapándole la cara, le preguntaban: «Haz de profeta: ¿quién te ha pegado?». Y proferían contra Él otros muchos insultos. 

Cuando se hizo de día, se reunió el senado del pueblo, o sea, sumos sacerdotes y letrados, y, haciéndole comparecer ante su Sanedrín, le dijeron: «Si tú eres el Mesías, dínoslo». Él les contestó: «Si os lo digo, no lo vais a creer; y si os pregunto no me vais a responder. Desde ahora el Hijo del Hombre estará sentado a la derecha de Dios todopoderoso». Dijeron todos: «Entonces, ¿tú eres el Hijo de Dios?». Él les contestó: «Vosotros lo decís, yo lo soy». Ellos dijeron: «¿Qué necesidad tenemos ya de testimonios? Nosotros mismos lo hemos oído de su boca».

El senado del pueblo o sea, sumos sacerdotes y letrados, se levantaron y llevaron a Jesús a presencia de Pilato. Y se pusieron a acusarlo diciendo: «Hemos comprobado que éste anda amotinando a nuestra nación, y oponiéndose a que se paguen tributos al César, y diciendo que Él es el Mesías rey». Pilato preguntó a Jesús: «¿Eres tú el rey de los judíos?». Él le contestó: «Tú lo dices». Pilato dijo a los sumos sacerdotes y a la turba: «No encuentro ninguna culpa en este hombre». Ellos insistían con más fuerza diciendo: «Solivianta al pueblo enseñando por toda Judea, desde Galilea hasta aquí». Pilato, al oírlo, preguntó si era galileo; y al enterarse que era de la jurisdicción de Herodes se lo remitió. Herodes estaba precisamente en Jerusalén por aquellos días. 

Herodes, al ver a Jesús, se puso muy contento; pues hacía bastante tiempo que quería verlo, porque oía hablar de Él y esperaba verlo hacer algún milagro. Le hizo un interrogatorio bastante largo; pero Él no le contestó ni palabra. Estaban allí los sumos sacerdotes y los letrados acusándolo con ahínco. Herodes, con su escolta, lo trató con desprecio y se burló de Él; y, poniéndole una vestidura blanca, se lo remitió a Pilato. Aquel mismo día se hicieron amigos Herodes y Pilato, porque antes se llevaban muy mal. 

Pilato, convocando a los sumos sacerdotes, a las autoridades y al pueblo, les dijo: «Me habéis traído a este hombre, alegando que alborota al pueblo; y resulta que yo le he interrogado delante de vosotros, y no he encontrado en este hombre ninguna de las culpas que le imputáis; ni Herodes tampoco, porque nos lo ha remitido: ya veis que nada digno de muerte se le ha probado. Así que le daré un escarmiento y lo soltaré». Por la fiesta tenía que soltarles a uno. Ellos vociferaron en masa diciendo: «¡Fuera ése! Suéltanos a Barrabás». A éste lo habían metido en la cárcel por una revuelta acaecida en la ciudad y un homicidio. Pilato volvió a dirigirles la palabra con intención de soltar a Jesús. Pero ellos seguían gritando: «¡Crucifícalo, crucifícalo!». Él les dijo por tercera vez: «Pues, ¿qué mal ha hecho éste? No he encontrado en Él ningún delito que merezca la muerte. Así es que le daré un escarmiento y lo soltaré». Ellos se le echaban encima pidiendo a gritos que lo crucificara; e iba creciendo el griterío. Pilato decidió que se cumpliera su petición: soltó al que le pedían (al que había metido en la cárcel por revuelta y homicidio), y a Jesús se lo entregó a su arbitrio. 

Mientras lo conducían, echaron mano de un cierto Simón de Cirene, qué volvía del campo, y le cargaron la cruz para que la llevase detrás de Jesús. Lo seguía un gran gentío del pueblo, y de mujeres que se daban golpes y lanzaban lamentos por Él. Jesús se volvió hacia ellas y les dijo: «Hijas de Jerusalén, no lloréis por mí, llorad por vosotras y por vuestros hijos, porque mirad que llegará el día en que dirán: ‘Dichosas las estériles y los vientres que no han dado a luz y los pechos que no han criado’. Entonces empezarán a decirles a los montes: ‘Desplomaos sobre nosotros’, y a las colinas: ‘Sepultadnos’; porque si así tratan al leño verde, ¿qué pasará con el seco?».

Conducían también a otros dos malhechores para ajusticiarlos con Él. Y cuando llegaron al lugar llamado "La Calavera", lo crucificaron allí, a Él y a los malhechores, uno a la derecha y otro a la izquierda. Jesús decía: «Padre, perdónalos, porque no saben lo que hacen». Y se repartieron sus ropas, echándolas a suerte. El pueblo estaba mirando. Las autoridades le hacían muecas diciendo: «A otros ha salvado; que se salve a sí mismo, si Él es el Mesías de Dios, el Elegido». Se burlaban de Él también los soldados, ofreciéndole vinagre y diciendo: «Si eres tú el rey de los judíos, sálvate a ti mismo». Había encima un letrero en escritura griega, latina y hebrea: «Éste es el rey de los judíos».

Uno de los malhechores crucificados lo insultaba diciendo: «¿No eres tú el Mesías? Sálvate a ti mismo y a nosotros». Pero el otro le increpaba: «¿Ni siquiera temes tú a Dios, estando en el mismo suplicio? Y lo nuestro es justo, porque recibimos el pago de lo que hicimos; en cambio, éste no ha faltado en nada». Y decía: «Jesús, acuérdate de mí cuando llegues a tu Reino». Jesús le respondió: «Te lo aseguro: hoy estarás conmigo en el Paraíso». 

Era ya eso de mediodía y vinieron las tinieblas sobre toda la región, hasta la media tarde; porque se oscureció el sol. El velo del templo se rasgó por medio. Y Jesús, clamando con voz potente, dijo: «Padre, a tus manos encomiendo mi espíritu». Y dicho esto, expiró.

El centurión, al ver lo que pasaba, daba gloria a Dios diciendo: «Realmente, este hombre era justo». Toda la muchedumbre que había acudido a este espectáculo, habiendo visto lo que ocurría, se volvían dándose golpes de pecho. Todos sus conocidos se mantenían a distancia, y lo mismo las mujeres que lo habían seguido desde Galilea y que estaban mirando. 

Un hombre llamado José, que era senador, hombre bueno y honrado (que no había votado a favor de la decisión y del crimen de ellos), que era natural de Arimatea y que aguardaba el Reino de Dios, acudió a Pilato a pedirle el cuerpo de Jesús. Y, bajándolo, lo envolvió en una sábana y lo colocó en un sepulcro excavado en la roca, donde no habían puesto a nadie todavía. Era el día de la Preparación y rayaba el sábado. Las mujeres que lo habían acompañado desde Galilea fueron detrás a examinar el sepulcro y cómo colocaban su cuerpo. A la vuelta prepararon aromas y ungüentos. Y el sábado guardaron reposo, conforme al mandamiento.


«Padre, perdónalos, porque no saben lo que hacen»

Fray Josep Mª MASSANA i Mola OFM 
(Barcelona, España)

Hoy leemos el relato de la pasión según san Lucas. En este evangelista, los ramos gozosos de la entrada en Jerusalén y el relato de la pasión están en relación mutua, aunque el primer paso suene a triunfo y el segundo a humillación.

Jesús llega a Jerusalén como rey mesiánico, humilde y pacífico, en actitud de servicio y no como un rey temporal que usa y abusa de su poder. La cruz es el trono desde donde reina (no le falta la corona real), amando y perdonando. En efecto, el Evangelio de Lucas se puede resumir diciendo que revela el amor de Jesús manifestado en la misericordia y el perdón.

Este perdón y esta misericordia se muestran durante toda la vida de Jesús, pero de una manera eminente se hacen sentir cuando Jesús es clavado en la cruz. ¡Qué significativas resultan las tres palabras que, desde la cruz, escuchamos hoy de los labios de Jesús!:

—Él ama y perdona incluso a sus verdugos: «Padre, perdónalos, porque no saben lo que hacen» (Lc 23,34).

—Al ladrón de su derecha, que le pide un recuerdo en el Reino, también lo perdona y lo salva: «Hoy estarás conmigo en el Paraíso» (Lc 23,43).

—Jesús perdona y ama sobre todo en el momento supremo de su entrega, cuando exclama: «Padre, a tus manos encomiendo mi espíritu» (Lc 23,46).

Ésta es la última lección del Maestro desde la cruz: la misericordia y el perdón, frutos del amor. ¡A nosotros nos cuesta tanto perdonar! Pero si hacemos la experiencia del amor de Jesús que nos excusa, nos perdona y nos salva, no nos costará tanto mirar a todos con una ternura que perdona con amor, y absuelve sin mezquindad.

San Francisco lo expresa en su Cántico de las Criaturas: «Alabado seas, oh Señor, por aquellos que perdonan por tu amor».

«¡Bendito el que viene en nombre del Señor! (Lc 19,38)»

Rev. D. Antoni CAROL i Hostench 
(Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona, España)

Hoy, la Misa comienza con la bendición de las palmas y la procesión de ingreso en el templo. Así, el Domingo de Ramos rememora la entrada "triunfal" de Cristo-Rey en la Ciudad Santa, pocos días antes de su Pasión. Es su última y definitiva subida a Jerusalén: este ascenso terminará en la Cruz. Pocos días antes, el Maestro resucitó a Lázaro y en la ciudad había una gran expectación.

Hoy Jesús se nos presenta en su condición de Rey. Esta vez sí que Él permite que las gentes le aclamen como Rey. El Viernes Santo confirmará su condición real ante Poncio Pilatos, máxima autoridad civil del lugar. Pero su reinado no es mundano. Así se lo hizo saber al gobernador, y así nos lo enseña hoy. 

En efecto, Él es Rey de los pobres: llega «montado sobre un borrico», tal como había anunciado el profeta Zacarías (Za 9,9). «No llega en una suntuosa carroza real, ni a caballo, como los grandes del mundo, sino en un asno prestado» (Benedicto XVI). Y es que Dios siempre actuó con suavidad: cuando llegó al mundo (un establo, un pesebre, unos pañales); cuando se "marchó" del mundo (un asno, una cruz, un sepulcro). Todo con suma delicadeza, como para no asustarnos ni incomodar nuestra libertad.

Con este Rey se «anunciará la paz a las naciones» y «serán rotos los arcos de guerra» (Za 9,10). Sí, Cristo convertirá la cruz en "arco roto": la Cruz ya no servirá como instrumento de tortura, burla y ejecución, sino como trono desde el cual reinar dando la vida por los demás.

Finalmente, las multitudes le reciben aclamándole: «¡Bendito el Rey que viene en nombre del Señor!» (Lc 19,38). Aquel día debieron ser algunos miles; en el siglo XXI somos muchos millones las voces que «de mar a mar, hasta los confines de la tierra» (Za 9,10) le entonamos en el "Sanctus" de la misa: «Bendito el que viene en nombre del Señor. Hosanna en el cielo».

          MEXICO: Condenando asesinato del camarada Luis Armando Fuentes Aquino.      Comment   Translate Page      



¡Urgente: paramilitares asesinan a nuestro camarada Luis Armando Fuentes Aquino!








Al magisterio democrático de la CNTE
A las organizaciones hermanas
Al grueso del movimiento popular
A nuestra militancia

Informamos sobre el cobarde asesinato de nuestro camarada Luis Armando Fuentes Aquino la tarde de ayer jueves 11 de abril de 2019 en la comunidad de San Francisco Ixhuatán.

Nuestro compañero Luis fue emboscado en una acción paramilitar y asesinado de un tiro en la cabeza por sujetos aún desconocidos. Los hechos ocurrieron alrededor de las 19:00hrs (horario de la resistencia) cuando nuestro camarada se dirigía a la comunidad de Cerro Grande, de la cual era originario.

El camarada Luis Armando fue Agente Municipal de su comunidad durante el periodo 2011-2013, tiempo en el cual encabezó la lucha de diversas comunidades por la obtención de los recursos de los Ramos 28 y 33 para el desarrollo comunitario, así mismo durante el 2012 inicia la Huelga de Pagos Contra las Altas Tarifas de la Energía Eléctrica, la cual hoy se ha extendido a más de una docena de comunidades en la Zona Oriente del Istmo.

Siendo pescador, nuestro camarada llegó a organizar las Cooperativas Pesqueras y los llamados Grupos de Pescadores Libres en la Zona Oriente del Istmo, junto a quienes desarrolló importantes luchas en defensa de la pesca ribereña y en contra del abuso y corrupción de las autoridades federales, incluidas las de Secretaría Armada de México que desde siempre han cometido toda clase de abusos y robos contra los pescadores empobrecidos.

El camarada se desempeñaba como integrante de la Comisión en Defensa de la Tierra y el Territorio de la Zona Oriente del Istmo, era miembro del Comité Regional Istmo de nuestra organización y participaba asesorando a nuevas comunidades contra las llamadas “Zonas Económicas Especiales-Plan para el Desarrollo del Istmo”.

El camarada participó en la formación de las Autodefensas Populares en diversos municipios del Istmo de Tehuantepec enarbolando los derechos de los pueblos indígenas a establecer sus propias formas de gobierno y métodos de impartición de justicia y seguridad comunitaria en contra la delincuencia organizada y el saqueo de recursos naturales.

La última actividad que el camarada desarrolló en vida fue al frente del bloqueo carretero a la altura de Ostuta el pasado 10 de abril, durante la segunda fase de nuestra Jornada por Justicia y los Derechos del Pueblo, enarbolando con firmeza la presentación con vida de nuestro camarada Ernesto Sernas García y el cumplimiento de los Cinco Puntos que demanda nuestra organización.

Por toda esta férrea labor como defensor del territorio, el camarada había recibido amenazas por parte de autoridades de diferentes municipios de la zona, así como también de funcionarios federales de la Comisión Federal de Electricidad e incluso del crimen organizado para quienes la labor de nuestro compañero resultaba incómoda.

Responsabilizamos de este asesinato a los gobiernos estatal y federal, toda vez que con su actuar e implementación de políticas antipopulares de saqueo de recursos naturales y despojo de tierra y territorio, han violentado la forma de vida nuestras comunidades, extendiendo la inseguridad y fomentando la guerra contra el pueblo y el terrorismo de estado.

Ante la represión y las campañas de hostigamiento del viejo estado responderemos con mayor organización y combatividad en las calles. La sangre de nuestro camarada Luis Armando riega la lucha por la Revolución de Nueva Democracia que barra con las tres montañas que oprimen a nuestro pueblo: el latifundio, el imperialismo y el capitalismo burocrático.

¡Exigimos justicia y castigo a los culpables!
¡Camarada Luis Armando, vive en la lucha!

¡Alto a la guerra contra el pueblo y el terrorismo de estado!
¡No a la Guardia Nacional y la militarización del país!
¡No a los megaproyectos de despojo y muerte!
¡Abajo las políticas antipopulares del régimen!

¡Con el Sol Rojo, el pueblo vencerá!

          Here are the officials who vote on the Federal Reserve committee that sets interest rates      Comment   Translate Page      

fed powell board governors

  • Interest rates are set through a voting system on the Federal Open Market Committee. 
  • That group consists of Fed governors and leaders of central bank branches across the country. 
  • Officials tend to be labeled as dovish or hawkish, depending on how much they focus on inflation or employment. 

President Donald Trump often blames his monetary policy frustrations on Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell. But interest rates are determined by a group of central bankers, not by Powell alone.

Members of the Federal Open Market Committee typically meet eight times a year to vote on the federal funds rate. Seven individuals on the Board of Governors always vote — there are currently two of these seats open that Trump is planning nominations for.

Fed presidents from across the country take turns on the FOMC each year, though the New York bank’s leader always votes.

Here's who will be on the committee through 2021 and how they tend to view monetary policy, according to analysis by Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Inflation doves are seen as more concerned about employment than rising prices, while hawkish officials tend to favor higher interest rates.

Elizabeth Warren Wants To End "Beyond A Reasonable Doubt" For Criminal Convictions

Fri, 04/12/2019 - 15:50

Authored by Simon Black via SovereignMan.com,

Each Friday we highlight a number of important, and often bizarre stories from around the world that my team and I are closely following:

Elizabeth Warren wants to destroy centuries of legal standards

To take your freedom requires more evidence than to take your money. For now.

Criminal convictions depend on the accused being guilty beyond all reasonable doubt. Civil convictions depend only on a preponderance of evidence pointing to guilt.

But Senator Elizabeth Warren introduced a bill last week to apply criminal penalties to corporate executives found civilly liable for company misconduct.

And these criminal penalties would apply regardless of intent. Failure to stop a crime would be considered a crime itself, whether you knew about it or not.

The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers is speaking out against the proposed law, calling it a dangerous attempt to abandon “core principles of criminal law that have been part of the Anglo-American legal tradition for centuries.”

As a former Harvard Law Professor, Warren must understand the implications of this bill. And that makes her a very scary candidate to occupy the oval office.

But what else would we expect from this crop of rising Bolsheviks? Revolutions can’t abide by stale old ideas like rule of law.

Philadelphia becomes the first major US city to ban cashless stores

Two weeks ago we talked about a San Francisco politician trying to require all stores in the city to hire cashiers and accept cash.

Now Philadelphia has beat them to the punch. It is the first major US city to outlaw the coming innovation of cash/cashierless stores, like Amazon Go.

The excuse, of course, is that people without access to credit cards or bank accounts won’t be able to use those cashless stores.

Seems like it would be a lot easier for those people to continue going to the same stores where they are currently shopping, and allow other consumers who prefer to shop at Amazon Go to make their own decisions.

But no. Politicians’ zeal to stick it to Amazon outweighs everything else… so they choose instead to outlaw innovation at the expense of consumers.

          Migrants Could Benefit From Trump Sanctuary City Idea       Comment   Translate Page      
An idea floated by President Donald Trump to send immigrants from the border to “sanctuary cities” to exact revenge on Democratic foes could end up doing the migrants a favor by placing them in locations that make it easier to put down roots and stay in the country. The plan would put thousands of immigrants in cities that are not only welcoming to them, but also more likely to rebuff federal officials carrying out deportation orders. Many of these locations have more resources to help immigrants make their legal cases to stay in the United States than smaller cities, with some of the nation’s biggest immigration advocacy groups based in places like San Francisco, New York City and Chicago. The downside for the immigrants would be a high cost of living in the cities. The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University announced this week that an analysis found that immigrants in sanctuary cities such as New York and Los Angeles are 20% less likely to be arrested out in the community than in cities without such policies. “With immigrants being less likely to commit crimes than the U.S. born population, and with sanctuary jurisdictions being safer and more productive than non-sanctuary jurisdictions, the data damns this proposal as a politically motivated stunt that seeks to play politics with peoples’ lives,” said George Gascon, district attorney for San Francisco. ​Tens of thousands of immigrants Trump has grown increasingly frustrated over the situation at the border, where tens of thousands of immigrant families are crossing each month, many to claim asylum. His administration has attempted several efforts to stop the flow and he recently shook up the top ranks of the Department of Homeland Security. The idea to ship immigrants to Democratic strongholds was considered twice in recent months, but the White House and Department of Homeland Security said the plan had been rejected. But Trump said Friday he was still considering the idea. “Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only,” Trump tweeted. He added that, “The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy - so this should make them very happy!” In California, needing work Wilson Romero is an immigrant from Honduras who chose to settle in the San Francisco Bay Area. Romero, 27, was separated from his daughter, now 7, by federal authorities at the U.S. border at El Paso, Texas, last year and jailed for three months before being released and making his way to live with his mother in San Jose, California. There he was reunited with his daughter, who attends public kindergarten. Romero says he goes about daily errands in public without worry of discrimination. His daughter has made friends and has playdates with the children of Mexican American families. It’s a far cry from his hometown in the violence-plagued outskirts of San Pedro Sula, Honduras, that he fled after his brother-in-law was killed. To him, the biggest problem with being in the Bay Area is the high cost of living. The former textile factory worker relies on his mother’s income from waitressing for food and clothing, and he’s started thinking about asking legal permission to move to North Carolina, where an uncle resides and says it’s cheaper to live and work. “To tell the truth, it’s a little tight now, financially speaking,” said Romero, a former textile factory worker, who said he doesn’t know of any charities that may be willing to help. ​Legal, logistical issues The plan discussed by Trump would also have financial, logistical and legal issues. The transportation of immigrants who are arrested at the border to large and faraway cities would be burdensome and costly at a time when Immigration and Customs Enforcement is already stretched thin, having released more than 125,000 immigrants into the country pending their immigration court date since Dec. 21. They are currently being released mainly in border states. Flights chartered by ICE cost about $7,785 per flight hour, according to the agency, and require multiple staffers, including an in-flight medical professional. The agency also uses commercial flights. Doing longer transports would increase liability for the agency, especially considering that many of the immigrants in its care are families with young children. And despite the consideration given to releasing the immigrants on the streets to sanctuary cities, the Trump administration actually has plenty of jail space to detain families. As of April 11, the nation’s three facilities to detain immigrant families were nowhere near capacity, including a Pennsylvania facility housing only nine immigrants. It’s also unclear how long the immigrants would stay in these cities because they are required to provide an address to federal authorities, typically of a family member, as a condition of their release. “It’s illogical,” said Angela Chan, policy director and senior attorney with the San Francisco-based Asian Law Caucus. “It’s just alarming that they are spending so much effort and so much time to engage in political theater.” The Trump administration has long pushed back against cities with sanctuary policies, which generally prohibit local authorities to cooperate with federal immigration police, often by refusing to hold people arrested on local charges past their release date at the request of immigration officers. More than 100 local governments around the country have adopted a variety of these policies. “New York City will always be the ultimate city of immigrants, the president’s empty threats won’t change that,” New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio said in a statement. But Trump seemed ready to step up his fight with the cities, vowing to “give them an unlimited supply” of immigrants from the border.

From Curbed Los Angeles:

...Data released last month by LA’s Department of Transportation show that, in 2018, at least 240 people died in collisions.

City officials have long argued that public awareness of traffic safety issues is lacking, and permanent memorial signs (most of Gamboa’s ghost bikes are treated by the city as temporary installations) could shine a light on LA’s high rate of crash deaths.A sample memorial sign. City of Los Angeles

At a meeting of the City Council’s transportation committee last month, councilmembers Mike Bonin and Nury Martinez recommended that, to drive that message home further the city should also mount signs memorializing pedestrians killed in collisions.

But that proposal is a work in progress. Transportation general manager Seleta Reynolds told the committee that the department may need to design an alternative program for pedestrians due to the enormous number of people killed while walking each year.

“One hundred fifty pedestrians die on our streets every year; a much smaller number—15 or so—bicyclists do,” said Reynolds. “In order for us to put together a memorial program that’s respectful and on the same level...we would want to just consider what that would look like.”

Under the new program, memorials for bicyclists would be created at the request of a victim’s family members and would offer drivers a short directive (“watch your speed” or “don’t text and drive,” for instance), followed by a bicycle image and the victim’s name.

Gamboa says simplicity is effective in roadside memorials as an entry point to a larger conversation about the ways that Los Angeles’s streets are designed, and how to create an environment that’s safer for people who aren’t driving.

“The goal is to start a dialogue,” he says. “So we can start working toward real solutions to this problem.”

Rob's comment:
How are we doing in SF? Better than L.A. and more or less as you would expect, when you look at the city's numbers in this study (pages 4-7) that put traffic deaths in San Francisco in historical context. 

But we will never get to zero---by 2024 or any other year. See Please cut the crap on Vision Zero.

          GOP Lawmakers Propose Bill to Separate Chicago From Illinois      Comment   Translate Page      

Legislation proposing the separation of Chicago from Illinois is intended to spark discussion about the overarching influence of the city in state politics, not actually lead to the creation of the 51st state, according to a central Illinois lawmaker who sponsored the measure.

GOP state Rep. C.D. Davidsmeyer, the bill 's sponsor, said the proposal would urge U.S. Congress to make the nation's third-largest city its own state, the State Journal-Register reported.

"It's more of a frustration of the policies than the true belief that Chicago and Illinois would be better off as separate states," Davidsmeyer said. "I don't believe that Chicago and the state of Illinois should be separated. Our relationship is mutually beneficial."

Chicago needs to recognize how its policies impact rural Illinois, Davidsmeyer added.

"The reality is, the city of Chicago is competing with New York City and L.A. and San Francisco, and (downstate is) competing against rural Indiana and rural Missouri," he said. "The policies that come down from Chicago are actually pushing our economic opportunity away."

GOP state Rep. Brad Halbrook introduced the proposed measure in February. He co-sponsored a similar proposal last year that failed, and this year's attempt has even less of a chance of succeeding in the Democratic-controlled Legislature. Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker and the leaders of the state House and Senate are all Democrats from Chicago.

Halbrook said the city of 2.7 million people differs ideologically from the rural population downstate on matters such as abortion and gun rights.

"Our traditional family values seem to be under attack at every angle," Halbrook said. "We are trying to drive the discussion to get people at the table to say these are not our values down here."

Forming a new state from a portion of a current state requires endorsement from Congress and the state legislature, according to the U.S. Constitution.

"When you have a large population center that seems to control the agenda for the rest of the state, it just kind of creates some issues," Halbrook said. "The Constitution gives us a pathway, so we'll see what happens."

Tension between urban and rural areas aren't exclusive to Illinois. The same has occurred in New York and California , according to a paper published last year by the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute at Southern Illinois University.

John Jackson, a visiting professor at the institute and co-author of the paper, said it's odd that the bitterness has persisted for so long in Illinois.

"We ought to have leaders who get together and coalesce for the good of the state," Jackson said. "The idea of this being a total zero-sum kind of game, that mentality 'you win, I've got to lose,' seems to be the mentality many have. That's just not the case. The state needs to prosper together."

As a Kansan, I can only admire from a distance California’s vision and progress. When I travel to California I nearly always take advantage of your excellent commuter rail system as it is much preferable to struggling with congested highway traffic. This adjustment to the high speed rail plan is appropriate. Build the easy part first and stick with the plan for 220 mph, then work on extending to Sacramento, San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego. Las Vegas will be beating a path to connect to your system.
          Comment on Update on the Bullet Train by BurnThisRag      Comment   Translate Page      
“At $77 billion dollars, construction of a high speed rail system from San Francisco to Los Angeles and Anaheim is certainly an expensive project. But it will cost a fraction of what the state would have to spend to achieve the same level of mobility for a population expected to reach 50 million people by the year 2030. To move an equivalent number of people would cost $170 billion in new freeways and airport runway expansions in the Bay Area and Los Angeles, assuming those projects would have both the necessary public support and environmental clearance. And while others have said we should wait for newer technology, high speed rail is a safe, reliable and cost effective system of transportation, proven around the world.” –San Francisco Examiner
          Whose University?, thru Aug 31      Comment   Translate Page      
In 1969, one of the longest student-led strikes in UC Berkeley history gave birth to a movement that has lasted for five decades. The strike was organized by the Third World Liberation Front (TWLF), a coalition of African American, Asian American, Chicanx, and Native American student organizations. Inspired by liberation movements at home and abroad and the 1968 San Francisco State College TWLF strike, Berkeley's TWLF demanded a Third World College and envisioned a radical and relevant education taught by and for people of color.

The TWLF strike marked a turning point in UC Berkeley history, leading to the establishment of the Department of Ethnic Studies and African American Studies and reverberating at universities and schools across the country. The legacy of the TWLF has inspired generations of students. Fifty years later, the struggle for a liberatory education is as critical as ever.

This exhibit shows this history through archives from the Ethnic Studies Library and Bancroft Library and photographs by Stephen Shames and Ilka Hartmann.

He explains to Jim that there's been some extraordinarily clever use of classical music by directors but many rely on cliche tracks to make a pont. He says classical music is pretty much always the trademarks of villains.

With the afternoon sun in the background, the Bliss Dance sculpture at "The Park" next to New York New York casino appears ready to sit on a cloud.

According to the park website, "Bliss Dance is a breathtaking, 40-foot-tall sculpture of a dancing woman, celebrating the strength of a woman who is both safe and present. The structure and scale of Bliss Dance was inspired by artist Marco Cochrane's first experience at Burning Man, an annual arts and culture event in Nevada's Black Rock Desert, where Bliss Dance later debuted. Most recently, Bliss Dance resided on San Francisco's Treasure Island as a public display before being refurbished and returned to the desert as a centerpiece of The Park's natural landscaping and Nevada-inspired design."

The sculpture is based on model Deja Solis.

          “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”      Comment   Translate Page      
Demosaurus Hypocriticus - (Bozo Sapien)

I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, that democrats and the ivory tower media are making such a fuss about DJT's proposal to send illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities. This the liberals and media should be applauding! Sanctuary cities actively invite illegals to come there for safety, and all the president proposes is sending those cities more of what they said they were willing to take, and he's even throwing in free shipping. After all, Sanctuary city leaders, and apparently indirectly city voters, have been willing to provide the millions of dollars in tax resources to welcome them the past two years. 


Sanctuary cities are indeed the most humane option for the million or so illegals that arrive each year, and their mayors should specifically request receiving illegals for humanitarian reasons and even compete for illegals. The inhuman alternative is releasing illegals to areas unprepared to suddenly handle tens to hundreds of thousands of needy people, which would be inhumane because they would get far less care, less housing, less food, and less medical care than the sanctuary cities. If one illegal is good for a sanctuary city................

What Trump has brilliantly done is applied the fourth of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

The holier-than-thou media and democrat politicans have been lecturing the public for years how illegals are the ideal citizen and no walls or other efforts should be made to stop or limit their crossing into the United States. Yet when the President offers to send them more illegals, they object. These Mayors and governors are currently violating federal law by harboring illegal immigrants and refusing, at the cost of the lives and property of their legal citizens, to report their presence to the federal government.

So why do they object now??  Well, let's suppose the mayor of Oakland or San Francisco opened their doors and welcomed 100,000 illegals a year. Their progressive citizens might initially rejoice and embrace their new residents. But reality would sink in before very long, with massive hikes in taxes, crime, disease and homelessness and all, things that are already apparent in some places.  Residents would eventually revolt. Or maybe the liberals love illegals but just don’t want “them” in THEIR neighborhood (lookin' at you Malibu Babs) which makes them the greatest hypocrites of all time and deserve all possible ridicule and scorn they get from law abiding American people.

          "The Greatest Game Ever Pitched" with Jim Kaplan      Comment   Translate Page      
It would have been enough just to see them pitch. Taking the mound at San Francisco's Candlestick Park that summer night in 1963 were 42-year-old Warren Spahn and 25-year-old Juan Marichal -- the embodiment of an ageless wonder headed for the Hall of Fame and a whirling wunderkind making his own case for immortality. But as one scoreless inning followed another en route to a 16th-inning climax, the 15,921 fans in attendance began to sense that they were watching a pitching duel for the ages. They remained, shivering and thrilled, to see it end after midnight. The sui generis event surpassed the world of statistics and entered into the realm of magic. Author Jim Kaplan, who covered baseball for Sports Illustrated in the 1970's and 1980's, initially planned to expand a magazine story he'd written about the game into book form. The more he researched the principals in his travels from San Francisco to South Buffalo to Santo Domingo, however, the more fascinated he became with their biographies. Spahn was one of the most decorated ballplayers to fight in World War II. Marichal narrowly escaped death three times. Despite their obvious differences -- Spahn was white, American, and left-handed, Marichal is bronzed, Dominican, and right-handed -- Kaplan found extraordinary similarities between the friendly rivals.

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

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

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

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

Bring them all.

          «El PP estará dispuesto a aplicar el 155 con firmeza»      Comment   Translate Page      

«Imagínate cómo sería Bilbao si no hubiera existido ETA. Podríamos competir con Madrid», asegura Raquel González, candidata del PP a la alcaldía de Bilbao y cabeza de lista al Senado por Vizcaya, que advierte de que la estabilidad del País Vasco peligra de nuevo por el discurso de los radicales.

Recientemente afirmó que al PP no le temblaría el pulso para tomar medidas drásticas en el País Vasco. Incluso hizo mención al artículo 155.

Sí, claro. Si seguimos el mismo camino que Cataluña, aunque sea de manera más elegante, el resultado va a ser el mismo. Habrá crispación en la calle, enfrentamientos. Si se pone en riesgo el futuro de todos los vascos y tenemos mayoría en el Senado, el PP estará dispuesto a aplicar el 155 el tiempo necesario y con la firmeza que requiera la situación.

¿A qué se refiere cuando habla de seguir el mismo camino que Cataluña?

Lo vimos en el Parlamento vasco la semana pasada, cuando Julen Arzuaga se puso a insultar con esa virulencia a los que menos se lo merecen, que son los que nos protegen a todos. También a ellos. Pero a los socios que tiene ahora el PNV se les permite todo, incluso esas barbaridades. Es una muestra más de todo lo que se les ha dejado crecer a cuenta del débil Gobierno central que tenemos y de un PNV más centrado en caerle bien a los independentistas que en gobernar en el País Vasco.

Por el contrario, el PNV se define como único defensor del autogobierno vasco frente a lo que considera un intento de recentralización por parte del PP en Madrid.

Al PNV le gusta tergiversar las cosas y ponerse de víctima. Nosotros siempre hemos defendido que, cuanto más cerca tengas el órgano que se encarga de algo, todo es más directo y real. Pero las cosas que están transferidas se tienen que utilizar a favor de los bilbaínos y los vascos, no en contra del resto de los españoles. El PNV pide transferencias para desespañolizar, no para remar a favor de los vascos. Tiene transferida la Educación y en la concertada llevan varias jornadas de huelga. Tiene transferida la Sanidad y la tenemos en los tribunales por sus chanchullos. Ese oasis vasco del que nos hablaba Urkullu en su día se convirtió luego en un microclima y ahora es un agujero negro.

Hablemos de elecciones. Las encuestas son duras con el PP en Bilbao, que podría perder la mitad de sus concejales. ¿Qué valoración hace?

Evidentemente siempre te gustaría ver que vas a sacar mayoría absoluta, pero creo que las encuestas, al final, son sensaciones. Todo cambia muy rápido.

¿Hubiera sido usted partidaria de aunar el voto de derecha?

Es algo que ya intentó Alfonso Alonso y Ciudadanos se cerró en banda. Ni siquiera se llegaron a sentar. Me da mucha pena, porque creo que precisamente aquí en el País Vasco todos los que están valorando votar al centroderecha lo que realmente quieren es acabar con un nacionalismo que lo condiciona todo.

Ha hecho alusión a Ciudadanos, pero ¿vería también con buenos ojos un pacto con Vox?

Como no se llegó a nada con Ciudadanos no puedo decir cuáles habrían sido los siguientes pasos, pero creo que en Andalucía se hizo muy buen trabajo. Nuestro presidente -Juan Manuel Moreno Bonilla- consiguió dar a los andaluces lo que querían, que era un cambio y una nueva forma de hacer las cosas. Aquí lo veo más difícil, pero si llegara el caso haría lo que fuera por conseguir dar a la ciudad de Bilbao una nueva oportunidad.

Es decir, que sí.

Sí, pero si nos fijamos en las encuestas, en principio no van a tener representación. Por eso apelo a todos los que tengan en el aire todavía su voto. Ahora hay otro PP tanto aquí como en Madrid, todo es nuevo. Pido que nos den una oportunidad.


          Santo Evangelio 14 de abril2019      Comment   Translate Page      

Día litúrgico: Domingo de Ramos (C)

Texto del Evangelio (Lc 22,14—23,56): 

Llegada la hora, se sentó Jesús con sus discípulos, y les dijo: «He deseado enormemente comer esta comida pascual con vosotros antes de padecer, porque os digo que ya no la volveré a comer hasta que se cumpla en el Reino de Dios». Y tomando una copa, dio gracias y dijo: «Tomad esto, repartidlo entre vosotros; porque os digo que no beberé desde ahora del fruto de la vid hasta que venga el Reino de Dios». 

Y tomando pan, dio gracias; lo partió y se lo dio diciendo: «Esto es mi cuerpo, que se entrega por vosotros; haced esto en memoria mía». Después de cenar, hizo lo mismo con la copa diciendo: «Esta copa es la Nueva Alianza sellada con mi sangre, que se derrama por vosotros. Pero mirad: la mano del que me entrega está con la mía en la mesa. Porque el Hijo del Hombre se va según lo establecido; pero ¡ay de ése que lo entrega!».

Ellos empezaron a preguntarse unos a otros quién de ellos podía ser el que iba a hacer eso. Los discípulos se pusieron a disputar sobre quién de ellos debía ser tenido como el primero. Jesús les dijo: «Los reyes de los gentiles los dominan y los que ejercen la autoridad se hacen llamar bienhechores. Vosotros no hagáis así, sino que el primero entre vosotros pórtese como el menor, y el que gobierne, como el que sirve. Porque, ¿quién es más, el que está en la mesa o el que sirve?, ¿verdad que el que está en la mesa? Pues yo estoy en medio de vosotros como el que sirve. Vosotros sois los que habéis perseverado conmigo en mis pruebas, y yo os transmito el Reino como me lo transmitió mi Padre a mí: comeréis y beberéis a mi mesa en mi Reino, y os sentaréis en tronos para regir a las doce tribus de Israel».

Y añadió: «Simón, Simón, mira que Satanás os ha reclamado para cribaros como trigo. Pero yo he pedido por ti para que tu fe no se apague. Y tú, cuando te recobres, da firmeza a tus hermanos». Él le contestó: «Señor, contigo estoy dispuesto a ir incluso a, la cárcel y a la muerte». Jesús le replicó: «Te digo, Pedro, que no cantará hoy el gallo antes que tres veces hayas negado conocerme». 

Y dijo a todos: «Cuando os envié sin bolsa ni alforja, ni sandalias, ¿os faltó algo?». Contestaron: «Nada». Él añadió: «Pero ahora, el que tenga bolsa que la coja, y lo mismo la alforja; y el que no tiene espada que venda su manto y compre una. Porque os aseguro que tiene que cumplirse en mí lo que está escrito: ‘Fue contado con los malhechores’. Lo que se refiere a mí toca a su fin». Ellos dijeron: «Señor, aquí hay dos espadas». Él les contestó: «Basta».

Y salió Jesús como de costumbre al monte de los Olivos, y lo siguieron los discípulos. Al llegar al sitio, les dijo: «Orad, para no caer en la tentación». Él se arrancó de ellos, alejándose como a un tiro de piedra y arrodillado, oraba diciendo: «Padre, si quieres, aparta de mí ese cáliz. Pero que no se haga mi voluntad, sino la tuya». Y se le apareció un ángel del cielo que lo animaba. En medio de su angustia oraba con más insistencia. Y le bajaba el sudor a goterones, como de sangre, hasta el suelo. Y, levantándose de la oración, fue hacia sus discípulos, los encontró dormidos por la pena, y les dijo: «¿Por qué dormís? Levantaos y orad, para no caer en la tentación».

Todavía estaba hablando, cuando aparece gente: y los guiaba el llamado Judas, uno de los Doce. Y se acercó a besar a Jesús. Jesús le dijo: «Judas, ¿con un beso entregas al Hijo del Hombre?». Al darse cuenta los que estaban con él de lo que iba a pasar, dijeron: «Señor, ¿herimos con la espada?». Y uno de ellos hirió al criado del Sumo Sacerdote, y le cortó la oreja derecha. Jesús intervino diciendo: «Dejadlo, basta». Y, tocándole la oreja, lo curó. Jesús dijo a los sumos sacerdotes y a los oficiales del templo, y a los ancianos que habían venido contra Él: «¿Habéis salido con espadas y palos a la caza de un bandido? A diario estaba en el templo con vosotros, y no me echasteis mano. Pero ésta es vuestra hora: la del poder de las tinieblas».

Ellos lo prendieron, se lo llevaron y lo hicieron entrar en casa del sumo sacerdote. Pedro lo seguía desde lejos. Ellos encendieron fuego en medio del patio, se sentaron alrededor y Pedro se sentó entre ellos. Al verlo una criada sentado junto a la lumbre, se le quedó mirando y le dijo: «También éste estaba con Él». Pero él lo negó diciendo: «No lo conozco, mujer». Poco después lo vio otro y le dijo: «Tú también eres uno de ellos». Pedro replicó: «Hombre, no lo soy». Pasada cosa de una hora, otro insistía: «Sin duda, también éste estaba con Él, porque es galileo». Pedro contestó: «Hombre, no sé de qué hablas». Y estaba todavía hablando cuando cantó un gallo. El Señor, volviéndose, le echó una mirada a Pedro, y Pedro se acordó de la palabra que el Señor le había dicho: «Antes de que cante hoy el gallo, me negarás tres veces». Y, saliendo afuera, lloró amargamente. 

Y los hombres que sujetaban a Jesús se burlaban de Él dándole golpes. Y, tapándole la cara, le preguntaban: «Haz de profeta: ¿quién te ha pegado?». Y proferían contra Él otros muchos insultos. 

Cuando se hizo de día, se reunió el senado del pueblo, o sea, sumos sacerdotes y letrados, y, haciéndole comparecer ante su Sanedrín, le dijeron: «Si tú eres el Mesías, dínoslo». Él les contestó: «Si os lo digo, no lo vais a creer; y si os pregunto no me vais a responder. Desde ahora el Hijo del Hombre estará sentado a la derecha de Dios todopoderoso». Dijeron todos: «Entonces, ¿tú eres el Hijo de Dios?». Él les contestó: «Vosotros lo decís, yo lo soy». Ellos dijeron: «¿Qué necesidad tenemos ya de testimonios? Nosotros mismos lo hemos oído de su boca».

El senado del pueblo o sea, sumos sacerdotes y letrados, se levantaron y llevaron a Jesús a presencia de Pilato. Y se pusieron a acusarlo diciendo: «Hemos comprobado que éste anda amotinando a nuestra nación, y oponiéndose a que se paguen tributos al César, y diciendo que Él es el Mesías rey». Pilato preguntó a Jesús: «¿Eres tú el rey de los judíos?». Él le contestó: «Tú lo dices». Pilato dijo a los sumos sacerdotes y a la turba: «No encuentro ninguna culpa en este hombre». Ellos insistían con más fuerza diciendo: «Solivianta al pueblo enseñando por toda Judea, desde Galilea hasta aquí». Pilato, al oírlo, preguntó si era galileo; y al enterarse que era de la jurisdicción de Herodes se lo remitió. Herodes estaba precisamente en Jerusalén por aquellos días. 

Herodes, al ver a Jesús, se puso muy contento; pues hacía bastante tiempo que quería verlo, porque oía hablar de Él y esperaba verlo hacer algún milagro. Le hizo un interrogatorio bastante largo; pero Él no le contestó ni palabra. Estaban allí los sumos sacerdotes y los letrados acusándolo con ahínco. Herodes, con su escolta, lo trató con desprecio y se burló de Él; y, poniéndole una vestidura blanca, se lo remitió a Pilato. Aquel mismo día se hicieron amigos Herodes y Pilato, porque antes se llevaban muy mal. 

Pilato, convocando a los sumos sacerdotes, a las autoridades y al pueblo, les dijo: «Me habéis traído a este hombre, alegando que alborota al pueblo; y resulta que yo le he interrogado delante de vosotros, y no he encontrado en este hombre ninguna de las culpas que le imputáis; ni Herodes tampoco, porque nos lo ha remitido: ya veis que nada digno de muerte se le ha probado. Así que le daré un escarmiento y lo soltaré». Por la fiesta tenía que soltarles a uno. Ellos vociferaron en masa diciendo: «¡Fuera ése! Suéltanos a Barrabás». A éste lo habían metido en la cárcel por una revuelta acaecida en la ciudad y un homicidio. Pilato volvió a dirigirles la palabra con intención de soltar a Jesús. Pero ellos seguían gritando: «¡Crucifícalo, crucifícalo!». Él les dijo por tercera vez: «Pues, ¿qué mal ha hecho éste? No he encontrado en Él ningún delito que merezca la muerte. Así es que le daré un escarmiento y lo soltaré». Ellos se le echaban encima pidiendo a gritos que lo crucificara; e iba creciendo el griterío. Pilato decidió que se cumpliera su petición: soltó al que le pedían (al que había metido en la cárcel por revuelta y homicidio), y a Jesús se lo entregó a su arbitrio. 

Mientras lo conducían, echaron mano de un cierto Simón de Cirene, qué volvía del campo, y le cargaron la cruz para que la llevase detrás de Jesús. Lo seguía un gran gentío del pueblo, y de mujeres que se daban golpes y lanzaban lamentos por Él. Jesús se volvió hacia ellas y les dijo: «Hijas de Jerusalén, no lloréis por mí, llorad por vosotras y por vuestros hijos, porque mirad que llegará el día en que dirán: ‘Dichosas las estériles y los vientres que no han dado a luz y los pechos que no han criado’. Entonces empezarán a decirles a los montes: ‘Desplomaos sobre nosotros’, y a las colinas: ‘Sepultadnos’; porque si así tratan al leño verde, ¿qué pasará con el seco?».

Conducían también a otros dos malhechores para ajusticiarlos con Él. Y cuando llegaron al lugar llamado "La Calavera", lo crucificaron allí, a Él y a los malhechores, uno a la derecha y otro a la izquierda. Jesús decía: «Padre, perdónalos, porque no saben lo que hacen». Y se repartieron sus ropas, echándolas a suerte. El pueblo estaba mirando. Las autoridades le hacían muecas diciendo: «A otros ha salvado; que se salve a sí mismo, si Él es el Mesías de Dios, el Elegido». Se burlaban de Él también los soldados, ofreciéndole vinagre y diciendo: «Si eres tú el rey de los judíos, sálvate a ti mismo». Había encima un letrero en escritura griega, latina y hebrea: «Éste es el rey de los judíos».

Uno de los malhechores crucificados lo insultaba diciendo: «¿No eres tú el Mesías? Sálvate a ti mismo y a nosotros». Pero el otro le increpaba: «¿Ni siquiera temes tú a Dios, estando en el mismo suplicio? Y lo nuestro es justo, porque recibimos el pago de lo que hicimos; en cambio, éste no ha faltado en nada». Y decía: «Jesús, acuérdate de mí cuando llegues a tu Reino». Jesús le respondió: «Te lo aseguro: hoy estarás conmigo en el Paraíso». 

Era ya eso de mediodía y vinieron las tinieblas sobre toda la región, hasta la media tarde; porque se oscureció el sol. El velo del templo se rasgó por medio. Y Jesús, clamando con voz potente, dijo: «Padre, a tus manos encomiendo mi espíritu». Y dicho esto, expiró.

El centurión, al ver lo que pasaba, daba gloria a Dios diciendo: «Realmente, este hombre era justo». Toda la muchedumbre que había acudido a este espectáculo, habiendo visto lo que ocurría, se volvían dándose golpes de pecho. Todos sus conocidos se mantenían a distancia, y lo mismo las mujeres que lo habían seguido desde Galilea y que estaban mirando. 

Un hombre llamado José, que era senador, hombre bueno y honrado (que no había votado a favor de la decisión y del crimen de ellos), que era natural de Arimatea y que aguardaba el Reino de Dios, acudió a Pilato a pedirle el cuerpo de Jesús. Y, bajándolo, lo envolvió en una sábana y lo colocó en un sepulcro excavado en la roca, donde no habían puesto a nadie todavía. Era el día de la Preparación y rayaba el sábado. Las mujeres que lo habían acompañado desde Galilea fueron detrás a examinar el sepulcro y cómo colocaban su cuerpo. A la vuelta prepararon aromas y ungüentos. Y el sábado guardaron reposo, conforme al mandamiento.


«Padre, perdónalos, porque no saben lo que hacen»

Fray Josep Mª MASSANA i Mola OFM 
(Barcelona, España)

Hoy leemos el relato de la pasión según san Lucas. En este evangelista, los ramos gozosos de la entrada en Jerusalén y el relato de la pasión están en relación mutua, aunque el primer paso suene a triunfo y el segundo a humillación.

Jesús llega a Jerusalén como rey mesiánico, humilde y pacífico, en actitud de servicio y no como un rey temporal que usa y abusa de su poder. La cruz es el trono desde donde reina (no le falta la corona real), amando y perdonando. En efecto, el Evangelio de Lucas se puede resumir diciendo que revela el amor de Jesús manifestado en la misericordia y el perdón.

Este perdón y esta misericordia se muestran durante toda la vida de Jesús, pero de una manera eminente se hacen sentir cuando Jesús es clavado en la cruz. ¡Qué significativas resultan las tres palabras que, desde la cruz, escuchamos hoy de los labios de Jesús!:

—Él ama y perdona incluso a sus verdugos: «Padre, perdónalos, porque no saben lo que hacen» (Lc 23,34).

—Al ladrón de su derecha, que le pide un recuerdo en el Reino, también lo perdona y lo salva: «Hoy estarás conmigo en el Paraíso» (Lc 23,43).

—Jesús perdona y ama sobre todo en el momento supremo de su entrega, cuando exclama: «Padre, a tus manos encomiendo mi espíritu» (Lc 23,46).

Ésta es la última lección del Maestro desde la cruz: la misericordia y el perdón, frutos del amor. ¡A nosotros nos cuesta tanto perdonar! Pero si hacemos la experiencia del amor de Jesús que nos excusa, nos perdona y nos salva, no nos costará tanto mirar a todos con una ternura que perdona con amor, y absuelve sin mezquindad.

San Francisco lo expresa en su Cántico de las Criaturas: «Alabado seas, oh Señor, por aquellos que perdonan por tu amor».

«¡Bendito el que viene en nombre del Señor! (Lc 19,38)»

Rev. D. Antoni CAROL i Hostench 
(Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona, España)

Hoy, la Misa comienza con la bendición de las palmas y la procesión de ingreso en el templo. Así, el Domingo de Ramos rememora la entrada "triunfal" de Cristo-Rey en la Ciudad Santa, pocos días antes de su Pasión. Es su última y definitiva subida a Jerusalén: este ascenso terminará en la Cruz. Pocos días antes, el Maestro resucitó a Lázaro y en la ciudad había una gran expectación.

Hoy Jesús se nos presenta en su condición de Rey. Esta vez sí que Él permite que las gentes le aclamen como Rey. El Viernes Santo confirmará su condición real ante Poncio Pilatos, máxima autoridad civil del lugar. Pero su reinado no es mundano. Así se lo hizo saber al gobernador, y así nos lo enseña hoy. 

En efecto, Él es Rey de los pobres: llega «montado sobre un borrico», tal como había anunciado el profeta Zacarías (Za 9,9). «No llega en una suntuosa carroza real, ni a caballo, como los grandes del mundo, sino en un asno prestado» (Benedicto XVI). Y es que Dios siempre actuó con suavidad: cuando llegó al mundo (un establo, un pesebre, unos pañales); cuando se "marchó" del mundo (un asno, una cruz, un sepulcro). Todo con suma delicadeza, como para no asustarnos ni incomodar nuestra libertad.

Con este Rey se «anunciará la paz a las naciones» y «serán rotos los arcos de guerra» (Za 9,10). Sí, Cristo convertirá la cruz en "arco roto": la Cruz ya no servirá como instrumento de tortura, burla y ejecución, sino como trono desde el cual reinar dando la vida por los demás.

Finalmente, las multitudes le reciben aclamándole: «¡Bendito el Rey que viene en nombre del Señor!» (Lc 19,38). Aquel día debieron ser algunos miles; en el siglo XXI somos muchos millones las voces que «de mar a mar, hasta los confines de la tierra» (Za 9,10) le entonamos en el "Sanctus" de la misa: «Bendito el que viene en nombre del Señor. Hosanna en el cielo».

Az amerikai író egyik népszerű és érett alkotása, egy négylábú vidám és humoros, kalandokban és szenvedésekben egyaránt bővelkedő, romantikus, de valószerű története. Mihály, az ír terrier nagy kalandjai azzal kezdődnek, hogy Mihályt (A beszélő kutya hősének, Jeromosnak a fivérét) magához csalja egy szeretetre méltó, sör- és kutyabolond hajópincér. Az imádott új gazda dédelgeti, oktatja, megtanítja ötig számolni és elővarázsolja belőle éneklőkészségét is. Felejthetetlen hónapokat töltenek együtt különféle hajókon, majd San Francisco-ban, ahol „ az éneklő kutya” tartja el művészetével a Pincért és barátját. Egy pénzhajhász orvos azonban nemcsak a lepratelepre hurcolja gazdájától, hanem a szabadságától is megfosztja Mihályt. Kegyetlen állatidomítók karmai közé kerül. Itt ismerik fel és váltják ki rabságából Kennanék, Jeromos gazdái. Az író a mese keretében mesteri portrékat fest a könyvben szereplő jó és hitvány emberekről, megbélyegzi a kincsre éhes filisztereket. A kötet irodalmi és szórakozási igényeket egyaránt kielégít.

          Thế giới sẽ hỗn loạn nếu không còn sự dối trá?      Comment   Translate Page      
BM

Trong mùa thứ nhất của chương trình truyền hình 'The Good Place', Chidi Anagonye, giáo sư về triết học đạo đức luân lý, lâm vào tình huống khó xử khi một đồng nghiệp hỏi ý kiến của ông về đôi ủng mới.

Chidi rõ ràng là không thích đôi ủng màu đỏ sặc sỡ có nạm những viên pha lê. Nhưng để không làm cho người đồng nghiệp buồn, ông nói rằng ông thích.

Phần tất yếu của cuộc sống

BM
  
Ngay lập tức, Chidi hối hận vì đã nói dối và bắt đầu nghĩ quanh quẩn về sai trái đạo đức này, ngay cả khi người bạn gái ông trấn an rằng: "Đôi khi chúng ta cần phải nói dối vì phép lịch sự."

Cuối cùng, Chidi không thể chịu nổi mặc cảm tội lỗi và thú nhận cảm giác thật sự với người đồng nghiệp: "Đôi ủng đó trông thật tệ hại và kinh tởm, và tôi không ưa nó!"

Người đồng nghiệp rõ ràng đã bị tổn thương với lời thú nhận.

Đối với Chidi và một số nhà triết học khác, nghĩa vụ không nói dối đè nén hết thảy mọi sự thúc ép đạo đức khác, bao gồm không làm tổn thương tình cảm của người khác.

Tuy nhiên, ít người thật sự tuân theo nguyên tắc cứng nhắc về trung thực đó. Nói dối là một phần được chấp nhận trong cuộc sống, từ việc chúng ta tự động trả lời 'Tốt' khi có ai hỏi 'Hôm nay cậu thế nào?' cho đến lời khen khi một người bạn hỏi chúng ta có thích kiểu đầu mới trông phát gớm của cô ấy không.

Ấy vậy mà bất chấp sự phổ biến của nói dối trong cuộc sống chúng ta, đa số chúng ta không thật sự giỏi trong việc phát hiện ra sự dối trá.

Điều gì sẽ xảy ra nếu chúng ta có thể bất thình lình biết được là khi nào là lúc chúng ta bị người khác nói dối?

Chúng ta không bàn đến việc các cơ chế kỹ thuật và tâm lý giúp ta có được khả năng mới này hoạt động như thế nào, mà phân tích xem điều này cho ta biết những gì về vai trò của sự dối trá trong cuộc sống.

Nói dối để tự vệ?

BM
  
Nhiều nhà nghiên cứu tin rằng con người đã bắt đầu nói dối với nhau gần như ngay khi họ sáng tạo ra ngôn ngữ, mà về căn bản là lấy đó là cách để vượt lên trước.

"Nói dối là quá dễ so với các cách thức khác để đạt được quyền lực," bà Sissela Bok, nhà đạo đức học ở Đại học Harvard, nói với National Geographic. "Nói dối để lấy tiền bạc hay của cải của người khác thì dễ dàng nhiều so với đánh vào đầu họ hay cướp ngân hàng."

Trong suốt lịch sử nhân loại, nói dối cũng đã có vai trò như là 'một sự tiến hoá cần thiết để tự bảo vệ mình khỏi nguy hại', ông Michael Lewis, giáo sư danh dự về nhi khoa và tâm lý ở Đại học Rutgers, nói.

Nó bao gồm việc bảo vệ bản thân trước sự ngược đãi - điều vẫn đang là mục đích của hành vi nói dối của nhiều người trên khắp thế giới hiện nay.

Nếu chúng ta đột nhiên có thể phát hiện tất cả những lời nói dối - thì việc sống ở những nước nơi mà sự không chung thủy, đồng tính luyến ái hay một số niềm tin tôn giáo được xem là bất hợp pháp, sẽ trở nên rất rủi ro.

BM
Nói dối là một phần không thể thiếu trong cuộc sống, giống như khi ta cần phải nói không thật lòng khi thấy mái tóc mới cắt của ai đó

Nói dối cũng có thể có lợi cho chúng ta, kể cả nói dối nơi làm việc. Nếu nói thật với sếp về việc chúng ta nghĩ thế nào về ông ấy/bà ấy, hay lý do khiến chúng ta không làm việc đúng hẹn thì chúng ta có thể bị đuổi việc hay bị giáng cấp.

Chúng ta cũng nói dối để tạo hình ảnh bản thân tốt đẹp hơn trong mắt người khác và để duy trì phong thái chuyên nghiệp.

"Mới đây, tôi đến trễ ở một cuộc họp và tôi nói là tại xe điện ngầm chạy chậm," Kang Lee, giáo sư về tâm lý học ứng dụng và phát triển con người ở Đại học Toronto, nói.

"Thật ra, xe điện ngầm không hề khiến tôi bị trễ - tôi đi trễ vì lỗi của chính tôi - nhưng tôi không nghĩ rằng sẽ tốt cho tôi về mặt công việc nếu đồng nghiệp của tôi phát hiện được điều này," ông nói.

Thành thật nhưng tàn nhẫn

BM
  
Mặt khác, có những lúc trong công việc, sẽ là có lợi nếu như chúng ta biết được khi nào thì chúng ta bị người khác nói dối, Clark Freshman, giáo sư luật tại Đại học California, Hastings, và là chuyên gia phát hiện nói dối, bình luận.

Chẳng hạn như đưa ra đúng câu hỏi trong đàm phán và được đảm bảo có câu trả lời chính xác thì những nhân viên thuộc sắc tộc thiểu số có thể dễ dàng có được vị trí và mức lương tương đương với các đồng nghiệp thuộc sắc tộc đa số.

"Đối với tôi, một thế giới mà mọi người có thể biết được những sự thật quan trọng đối với họ sẽ là một thế giới tuyệt vời," Freshman giải thích. "Khi đó, tình trạng phân biệt đối xử sẽ ít đi, và sự công bằng sẽ hiện diện nhiều hơn."

Chúng ta cũng sẽ bị tổn thương tình cảm nhiều hơn. Đối với hầu hết mọi người, một thế giới không tồn tại sự dối trá sẽ là một cú đấm vào hình ảnh cá nhân chúng ta, Dan Ariely, giáo sư tâm lý học và kinh tế học hành vi tại Đại học Duke, nói.

BM
  
"Sống với sự thật có nghĩa là chúng ta sẽ phải đối diện với những lời phản hồi thành thật và tàn nhẫn hơn về công việc của chúng ta, cách chúng ta ăn mặc, cách chúng ta hôn… tất cả những thứ đại loại như thế," ông nói. "Bạn sẽ nhận ra rằng người ta chẳng chú ý gì mấy đến bạn, bạn không thật sự quan trọng, và năng lực của bạn thì không cao như bạn vẫn nghĩ."

Mặt khác, những lời phản hồi hoàn toàn trung thực có thể cho chúng ta cơ hội cải thiện bản thân và học hỏi - nhưng liệu đó có phải là sự đánh đổi xứng đáng không thì Dan Ariely không chắc.

Nói dối có thiện ý

BM  
Việc nói dối giúp cho con người ta được an toàn ở những nơi họ có thể bị nguy hiểm do khuynh hướng giới tính hay tôn giáo

Những cú sốc về hình ảnh cá nhân này sẽ thật sự bắt đầu ngay khi chúng ta học nói - làm méo mó sự phát triển của trẻ thơ bằng những cách khó lường.

"Hãy hình dung con bạn chạy tới chỗ bạn và khoe 'Bố ơi, mẹ ơi, hãy xem tranh của con này!' rồi bạn trả lời: 'Nhìn thấy gớm!'," Lee nói. "Tác động tiêu cực xảy ra ngay lập tức."

Sự ngây thơ của tuổi thơ cũng sẽ không còn nữa, trong đó có những nhân vật huyền thoại được mọi người vờ coi là có thật như Ông già Nô-en, Nàng Tiên Răng và Thỏ Phục sinh. Thay vào đó, thông qua sự tò mò của mình, trẻ em sẽ sớm đối diện với thực tế tàn nhẫn của cuộc sống vốn không nhất thiết là điều tốt.

"Có rất nhiều thứ mà nếu trẻ em biết được, các cháu sẽ rất khó hiểu," ông Paul Ekman, giáo sư danh dự về tâm lý học tại Đại học California, San Francisco, nói. "Tất cả những sự che giấu, nhất là của ba mẹ đối với con cái, không phải là có ác ý."

Bản thân trẻ em cũng học được giá trị xã hội của nói dối từ khi còn rất nhỏ. "Mẹ có thể nói với con rằng, 'Hãy nghe này, bà ngoại sẽ cho con một món quà cho Lễ Hanukkah (lễ của người Do Thái ), và con phải nói với bà rằng con thích nó, nếu không bà sẽ buồn lắm," Lewis nói. Đến khi ba hay bốn tuổi, các nghiên cứu cho thấy nhiều trẻ em đã thuần thục nghệ thuật nói dối lịch sự.

Trong các thí nghiệm được trình bày trên một công trình chưa công bố, Lewis cũng nhận thấy rằng trẻ em càng thông minh và càng chững chạc về tình cảm chừng nào thì càng nhiều khả năng là chúng sẽ nói dối khi được hỏi chúng có nhìn vào món đồ chơi mà chúng đã được dặn là không được nhìn vào hay không.

Tương tự, Kang và các đồng sự của ông đã nhận thấy rằng học cách nói dối cũng có lợi ích về nhận thức cho trẻ em.

Thích nghe nói dối?

BM
Cho đến khi chúng ta trở thành người lớn, hầu hết chúng ta sẽ nói dối thường xuyên.

Trong một nghiên cứu hồi năm 1996, Bella DePaulo, một nhà tâm lý xã hội tại Đại học California, Santa Barbara, nhận thấy rằng sinh viên đại học cứ ba lần giao tiếp xã hội thì nói dối khoảng một lần và những người lớn tuổi hơn thì nói dối một lần trong khoảng năm lần giao tiếp xã hội.

"Trong nhiều lời nói dối trong cuộc sống hàng ngày, mọi người có xu hướng tỏ ra tích cực hơn cảm xúc thật sự của họ," DePaulo viết trên tạp chí PsychCentral. "Nếu họ không thích bạn, họ sẽ tìm cách che giấu nó. Nếu họ cảm thấy chán nản với những gì bạn nói, họ sẽ có gắng làm ra vẻ quan tâm."

Trong cuộc đua tranh cử Tổng thống Mỹ 2016, ứng viên Dân chủ Hillary Clinton tỏ ra là người nói dối ít hơn nhiều so với đối thủ, ông Donald Trump

Thật ra, xét về mối quan hệ giữa các cá nhân, 'sẽ hoàn toàn là thảm họa nếu chúng ta thật sự có thể phát hiện ra sự lường gạt và dối trá', Lewis nói.

"Nói dối là hoàn toàn và tuyệt đối cần thiết trong một nền văn hóa mọi người chấp nhận về mặt đạo đức rằng chúng ta không nên làm tổn thương tình cảm của người khác."

Tất cả chúng ta đều là những kẻ đồng lõa trong sự phổ biến của cái gọi là 'lời nói dối vô hại'.

"Đa số mọi người đều chủ động phối hợp với người nói dối, khiến cho bản thân họ bị hiểu sai," Ekman phân tích.

Chẳng hạn như vào cuối buổi ăn tối, thông thường chúng ta sẽ nói với chủ nhà rằng chúng ta đã có một bữa ăn thật ngon ngay cả khi chúng ta ghét cay ghét đắng. Chủ nhà thì sẽ tin ngay mà không có nhu cầu muốn biết là chúng ta thấy đồ ăn và sự tiếp đãi của họ gớm chết đến mức nào.

Vợ chồng cũng có bí mật

BM
  
Mặt trái của kiểu nói dối lịch sự này, Lewis nói, là chúng ta có thể được mời đến ăn tối lần nữa - 'nhưng đó là cái giá phải trả cho việc không muốn làm tổn thương người khác.'

Trong một thế giới không có những lời nói dối lịch sự như thế, các mối quan hệ bè bạn sẽ sụp đổ, quan hệ nghề nghiệp sẽ rất căng thẳng và các buổi sum họp gia đình sẽ trở thành sự kiện chứa đựng nhiều rủi ro.

Chiến dịch vận động để Anh rời EU bị cáo buộc là đã nói dối về kinh tế để đạt kết quả trong kỳ trưng cầu dân ý ở Anh hồi 2016

Các mối quan hệ yêu đương của chúng ta cũng không tránh khỏi những lời dối trá.

Trong một nghiên cứu vào năm 1989 mà giờ đã trở thành kinh điển do bà Sandra Metts thực hiện tại Đại học Illinois, chỉ có 33 trong tổng số 390 người đã không thể nhớ lại một tình huống mà họ không hoàn toàn thành thật với người yêu.

Tương tự, hồi năm 2013 Jennifer Guthrie và Adrianne Kunkel thuộc Đại học Kansas phát hiện rằng chỉ có hai trong số 67 người được khảo sát trong một nghiên cứu không hề nói dối người yêu của mình trong vòng một tuần lễ.

Trong cả hai nghiên cứu, đa số những người tham dự đều nói rằng họ không trung thực là để tránh làm tổn thương người yêu hay làm tổn hại mối quan hệ.

BM
  
Nếu chuyện yêu đương lãng mạn bất chợt yêu cầu phải thành thật hoàn toàn về mọi thứ, từ chuyện người yêu trông như thế nào vào buổi sáng cho đến ta có bao giờ không chung thủy, thì nhiều mối quan hệ có khả năng không thể kéo dài.

"Tôi thích nói đùa rằng lý do mà tôi và vợ tôi đã sống cùng nhau được 40 năm là vì chúng tôi dùng phòng tắm riêng," Ekman nói. "Tuy nhiên, đó chỉ một phần là nói đùa bởi vì có những điều mà bạn không muốn người khác, thậm chí là người bạn đời, biết - và đó không chỉ là thói quen trong nhà tắm."

Làm chính trị phải nói dối?

BM
Chúng ta cũng có lúc nói dối là tàu chạy trễ khiến chúng ta tới muộn

Tuy nhiên, có một số cách mà khả năng phát hiện nói dối có lợi ích không thể tranh cãi.

Một trong số đó là chúng ta có thể phát hiện ngay lập tức những kẻ mắc bệnh nói dối, hay những người thích nói dối liên tục một cách tai hại vốn không có giá trị đạo đức nào, Lewis nói.

Những kẻ mắc bệnh nói dối thường là những kẻ tự cao tự đại mà nhu cầu tự dối gạt bản thân được thúc đẩy bằng sự không biết xấu hổ, và nó ăn sâu đến nỗi họ cũng tin vào lời nói dối của chính mình - ngay cả khi họ nói ngược lại những sự thật hiển nhiên như ban ngày hay những phát ngôn của họ trước đây.

Theo Lewis, Tổng thống Mỹ Donald Trump là một ví dụ kinh điển. "Sự lừa dối bản thân của ông ấy lớn đến nỗi ông ấy đơn giản không biết là mình đang nói láo," ông nói.

BM
  
Nói dối trong chính trị đương nhiên không là điều mới mẻ, bà Vian Bakir, giáo sư truyền thông chính trị và báo chí tại Đại học Bangor thuộc xứ Wales, nói. Triết gia cổ đại Plato thừa nhận giá trị của 'lời nói dối cao quý', bà nói, trong khi tác phẩm chính trị cổ điển 'The Prince' khẳng định vai trò thiết yếu của nói dối trong lãnh đạo chính trị.

Tuy nhiên, 'nói dối trong chính trị dường như đã trở quá mức trong những năm gần đây', Bakir nói.

"Điều đặc biệt tồi tệ về thời điểm hiện tại là một số chính trị gia nổi bật như Trump, Vladimir Putin và các nhà lãnh đạo chuyên quyền trên khắp thế giới đã biến việc nói dối trơ trẽn trở thành thói quen và đương nhiên họ không quan tâm liệu họ có bị phát hiện hay không."

Tin tưởng mù quáng

BM

Theo trang kiểm tra sự thật PolitiFact, 70% những phát ngôn của ông Donald Trump là sai lệch so với chỉ 32% phát ngôn của bà Hillary Clinton.

Các thể chế cũng có thể nói dối trơ trẽn, bà Bakir nói thêm. Chiến dịch vận động rời khỏi EU ở Anh nói đi nói lại rằng EU khiến nước Anh mất hơn 350 triệu bảng mỗi tuần - một tuyên bố mà sau đó Cơ quan Thống kê Anh gọi là 'dùng sai một cách rõ ràng đối với các con số thống kê chính thức'.

"Do tuyên bố này không chỉ sai mà còn là một nội dung quan trọng và có chủ ý của chiến dịch vận động, cũng công bằng khi cho rằng họ có ý định lừa đảo ở đây," Bakir nói.

Mặc dù có đủ bằng chứng về sự thiếu trung thực ở một số chính trị gia và tổ chức chính trị, nhưng nhóm các cử tri chủ chốt vẫn tiếp tục ủng hộ họ rất mạnh mẽ.

BM
Chúng ta đôi khi nói dối để không làm phật lòng những người đã đối xử với mình một cách hào phóng

Bakir chỉ ra rằng các nghiên cứu cho thấy những người hết sức tin vào những thông tin sai lệch sẽ rất khó mà được thuyết phục khác đi và rằng loài người cũng mắc chứng thiên lệch - tức có khuynh hướng tin vào những điều phù hợp với thế giới quan của họ.

Tuy nhiên, trong một thế giới mà mọi người có thể tự động phát hiện được lời nói dối thì sự ủng hộ cho các chính trị gia không trung thực có thể không trụ được lâu.

"Rất nhiều những người ủng hộ Trump nghĩ rằng ông ta bị buộc tội oan, rằng ông ấy không thật sự nói dối," Freshman nói. "Nhưng nếu thông qua hiểu biết của mình mà họ phát hiện được họ đang bị nói dối, tôi nghĩ nhiều người trong số họ sẽ không tìm cách bào chữa cho ông Trump nữa."

BM

Thế giới không có lời nói dối sẽ đẩy ngoại giao và quan hệ quốc tế vào hỗn loạn, nhưng cuối cùng người dân có thể sẽ được lợi từ những chính trị gia và quan chức trung thực hơn.

Điều này cũng đúng đối với hoạt động cảnh sát và việc xét xử các tội phạm hình sự. Bạo lực và sự phân biệt đối xử của cảnh sát sẽ giảm xuống. Các cảnh sát viên chỉ đơn giản hỏi nghi phạm họ có đem theo vũ khí hay không hay họ có gây ra một tội ác nào đó hay không - và các phiên tòa sẽ được thay thế bằng những câu hỏi đơn giản để định đoạt có tội hay không.

Today, she is a stage performer with a deeply loyal, worldwide cult following. The Space Lady will perform a selection of her psychedelic synth pop.

          Can This Breakfast Cereal Help Save The Planet?      Comment   Translate Page      
This past week in San Francisco, food writers and environmentalists gathered to taste some breakfast cereal. This particular cereal had an ingredient — the milled seeds of a little-known plant called Kernza — that's the result of a radical campaign to reinvent agriculture and reverse an environmentally disastrous choice made by our distant ancestors. The campaign began 40-some years ago with a scientist-environmentalist named Wes Jackson . He argued that humanity took a wrong turn, thousands of years ago, when it came to rely on crops like wheat and rice for basic sustenance. These "annual" crops need replanting each year, "which means that if you're going to get your seed to germinate, you've got to destroy the vegetation at the surface," clearing away anything that might compete with the fragile seedlings, Jackson said . As farmers use tillage tools or herbicides to get rid of competing vegetation, they inevitably wipe away habitat for birds and insects. Bare soil washes away and

Kim Kardashian wird eine gute Anwältin.

Die 38-Jährige sorgte kürzlich wieder für besonders überraschende Schlagzeilen, denn im Sommer letzten Jahres begann sie eine vierjährige Ausbildung bei einer Anwaltskanzlei in San Francisco und hofft nun ihre Anwaltsprüfungen im Jahr 2022 ablegen zu können. Für dieses Vorhaben bekommt sie auch aus ihrem Umfeld große Unterstützung: Ihre Freundin Larsa Pippen glaubt an sie.

"Ich meine, es liegt in ihren Genen. Ihr Dad war ein Anwalt, also ergibt es einfach Sinn", erklärte Larsa im Gespräch mit 'Hollywood Life'. Auf die Frage, ob sie sich von ihrer Freundin rechtliche Unterstützung holen würde, hatte die Reality-Show-Darstellerin eine klare Antwort: "Ich meine, sie vertritt mich schon lange, also glaube ich, dass das großartig wäre." Robert Kardashian Sr. wurde im Jahr 1995 als Promi-Anwalt bekannt, als er O.J. Simpson in einem Mordprozess verteidigt hatte.

Für ihren Traumjob muss die Frau von Kanye West ein vier Jahre langes Praktikum in einer Kanzlei absolvieren. In einigen US-Bundesstaaten ist es nämlich auch ohne Jurastudium möglich, durch solch ein Praktikum die Anwaltsprüfung abzulegen.
