          Sidedressed manure boosts profits   

Ohio farmer saves $100/acre over commercial fertilizer, with 20-25 bu./acre added corn yields.

Think Different

When Ohio farmer Tom Harrod first heard about sidedressing hog manure he was skeptical. He went to a county extension program after talking to some farmers about their use of hog manure on growing corn, then he decided to give it a try. After achieving good yields without using commercial fertilizer, he became sold on the practice.  Now, Harrod says, it’s driving profits in his operation.

-----

The idea to use hog manure on standing corn frightened Rossburg, Ohio farmer Tom Harrod at first. He has applied hog manure to fields, before and after crops, because they produce 12,000 hogs per year. He commonly used commercial fertilizer and soil testing for 30 years on their 1,300 acres that he farms with his son, Korey. But he knew a change was needed. That change was to utilize the nitrogen in the hog manure on a growing crop.

So Harrod began working with Ohio State University Manure Specialist Glenn Arnold and OSU Extension Agent Sam Custer to inject the hog manure as a sidedress in corn.

Manure replaces commercial fertilizer

“I admit, I didn’t think it would work,” says Harrod. Now, he thinks differently. “We don’t use commercial fertilizer on the fields where we inject hog manure, and we achieve the same yields or better than if we used commercial fertilizer.”

“This practice makes a lot of sense in these tough economic times,” adds Custer. He says farmers have success because injected nitrogen in the manure stays available longer for the corn plants; not reduced by rainfall or sunlight. Commercial fertilizer can be washed away by a rainstorm.

The hog manure application injection not only provides nitrogen for the corn crop but also has enough nutrients such as potash and phosphorus left over for the next year’s soybean crop. “The manure has the right amount of nutrient value to get two crops,” says Harrod. 

The farm is now saving close to $100 an acre using manure over commercial fertilizer. Custer says the data collected shows the injection system has yielded a 20-25 bushel increase.

Switched application methods

Harrod says a key to success is injecting hog manure as the corn plants grow. The conventional idea of applying manure in the fall loses nitrogen. But by injecting it, the plant is able to use it and not lose it. He applies 6,000 gallons of manure per acre, with a value of about 30 pounds of nitrogen per 1,000 gallons.

When this sidedress research began, a tank was used but producers found compaction issues in their fields. Now they have switched to a dragline system, and there is no compaction. However, the hose does move across growing rows of corn. 

To reduce hose damage to growing corn, it’s all about injection timing. There is a short window when it can be applied. Too late and the draglines can break off the corn and it dies. After three years of application timing research by Ohio State, the researchers concluded that the hog manure has to be applied before the corn plants reach V4 or eight inches in height (see chart).

Custer says farmers interested in starting the practice must discuss critical application timing with their custom applicator. Once a farmer finds success, buying their own injector system may yield added benefits, especially timeliness.

For the Harrod operation, they normally run a hose one mile from the hog barns but can run it up to one mile and half. Some operations inject as far as two miles from the facility.

Concerns and BMPs

Custer says it is a sound practice to apply to a growing crop, but warns it is a liquid so there are precautions. One is to watch field tiles so that no damage is done to them. Another recommendation is to install tile control structures if possible. They can eliminate excess manure getting into creeks or ditches.

Another practice is to have a manure analysis completed. Know your nitrogen and phosphorus levels. Custer says most hog manure has an application rate of 13,000 gallons per acre. Farmers only need to apply 6,000 gallons per acre. He also urges producers to follow the 4R’s. Apply at the right time, the right place, the right source and at the right rate to ensure success.


          High yields, low grain prices: Manage phosphorus and potassium wisely   

Bumper grain yields are being harvested from most Iowa fields this fall. However, due to low crop prices producers are thinking of reducing phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) fertilizer application rates. A few important management options should be considered when making decisions with unfavorable crop/fertilizer price ratios.

          Mengenal Lebih Dekat Kelompok Hacker Anonymous   
Sepak terjang Anonymous memang sering mengebohkan. Kelompok hacker ini sudah berulangkali menggeber serangan ke website penting.

Sulit diketahui siapa saja yang tergabung dalam Anonymous. Jika tampil di depan publik, mereka biasanya memakai topeng ala Guy Fawkes, seorang aktivis Inggris terkenal di zaman dahulu.
http://www.didunia.net/
Mengenal Lebih Dekat Kelompok Hacker Anonymous di Dunia
Seperti apa sejarah Anonymous dan bagaimana sepak terjang mereka? Berikut riwayat singkatnya yang  dihimpun dari berbagai sumber.


1. Lahir Tahun 2003
Cikal bakal kelompok Anonymous ini dilaporkan berasal dari tahun 2003. Awalnya berasal dari forum internet bernama 4chan.

Anonymous punya beragam misi. Terkhusus, mereka menentang sensor internet dan pengawasan online oleh pemerintah. Sehingga seringkali mereka menyerbu website pemerintah sebagai tanda protes.

Anonymous juga anti terhadap paham scientology, korupsi, dan homophobia. Padahal pada awalnya, kelompok komunitas online ini dibuat untuk tujuan senang-senang.

Anonymous memang bukan benar-benar sebuah organisasi. Mereka adalah grup besar individual yang mempunyai ketertarikan yang sama. Sehingga sering dikatakan semua orang bisa menjadi Anonymous.

Sejak tahun 2008, Anonymous semakin serius dalam aksi hacktivist, yaitu melakukan hack untuk misi tertentu. Mereka dijuluki sebagai Robin Hood digital dan dikenal memperjuangkan kebebasan informasi dan akses internet.

Aksi hack mereka semakin liar dan menyerang website-website penting. Sehingga majalah ternama Time memasukkan nama mereka sebagai salah satu kelompok paling berpengaruh di dunia pada tahun 2012.


2. Asal Kata Anonymous
Nama Anonymous sendiri terinspirasi oleh anonimitas user yang biasa memposting sesuatu di internet. Ya, banyak orang lebih memilih tidak menyebut identitas aslinya di dunia maya.

Konsep Anonymous semakin mantap pada tahun 2004. Ketika itu, administrator di forum 4chan mengaktivasi protokol Forced-Anon yang membuat semua postingan bernama Anonymous.

Anonymous pun merepresentasikan sebuah kelompok individu yang tidak bernama. Anggota Anonymous terdiri dai banyak pengguna forum internet.

Mereka memobilisasi serangan atau misi melalui berbagai wadah. Seperti di 4chan, YouTube, sampai melalui Facebook.

"Setiap orang yang ingin bisa menjadi Anonymous dan bekerja dengan tujuan tertentu. Kami setuju dengan semua agenda namun beroperasi secara independen," tukas seorang anggotanya.

Salah satu semboyan mereka yang terkenal adalah "We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us".


3. Serangan ke Website Penting
Anonymous sudah sering melakukan serangan ke berbagai website penting. Biasanya sebagai tanda protes atau ketidaksetujuan.

Pada tahun 2009 setelah Pirate Bay terbukti bersalah atas kasus hak cipta, Anonymous melancarkan serangan melawan organisasi International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI).

Organisasi tersebut termasuk yang menentang keberadaan Pirate Bay. Aksi serupa terjadi tahun 2012 lalu ketika website Megaupload ditutup.

Hacker Anonymous berhasil melumpuhkan situs Departemen Kehakiman AS, FBI, dan Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). Semuanya dinilai sebagai pihak yang menggembosi Megaupload.

Anonymous juga pernah melumpuhkan situs yang mengandung pornografi anak. Pada tahun 2008, mereka melancarkan serangan online besar-besaran pada kelompok agama Scientology.

Tidak jarang mereka melakukan serangan ke website pemerintah berbagai negara. Mereka pernah menumbangkan berbagai situs penting Israel sebagai protes serangan brutal mereka ke Palestina. Mereka sempat mengumbar 5000 data pribadi pejabat Israel.


4. Anggota yang Tertangkap
Beberapa anggota Anonymous berhasil ditangkap aparat. Tahun 2010, aparat di Belanda menangkap seorang remaja usia 16 tahun karena menyerang website Visa, Mastercard dan PayPal.

Pada bulan Januari 2011, kepolisian di Inggris berhasil menangkap lima orang hacker yang berhubungan dengan Anonymous.

Juni 2011, kepolisian di Spanyol menahan tiga orang yang masuk jaringan Anonymous. Ketiganya menyerang website pemerintah Mesir, Aljazair, Iran, Chile dan Selandia Baru.

Satu kasus yang cukup menonjol adalah penangkapan Christopher Weatherhead. Dia mengorganisasi serangan DDos pada PayPal dan dijatuhi hukuman 18 bulan penjara.

Masih banyak lagi kasus penangkapan hacker Anonymous. Namun tampaknya mereka tidak kapok dan akan terus melakukan misinya.

          Comment on Best rock musician or band by Mikeman   
Ok. I'm a former long time member of the Refrigerators. Let's get that out there. I agree these polls need to have more categories. It's not fair to the original music scene to have the same bands run in the same one general category. Also, to a point this is simply a popularity contest and the bands on the list encourage their fans to vote. I personally know the sheer amount of talent in the area that doesn't get recognized here, thus the need for more categories. But please don't say anything about the talent on this list. You're simply jealous. I personally have been playin my instrument for 17 years and have recently gone fully professional. Don't you dare downplay anyone you don't know personally. And if you do think that we don't have "talent", come out and tell us. Don't hide behind an anonymous blog. And if playing Mustang Sally is going to get you on this list, maybe you should consider a change of repertoire...
          Comment on An argument from “The Standards of Faith of the United Methodist Church” part 2 by Gary   
In light of this 2017 report, things don't look all bad. http://s3.amazonaws.com/Website_Interpreter/magazine/2017/2017_State_of_the_Church.pdf Sure, there is a 12% drop in membership in North America in 10 years. But there is an overall increase worldwide by 12%. And interestingly, on Paid on Apportionments to All General Funds, 1994-2016* Only 84.4% paid in 1994. But 91.9% paid in 2016. So members must think something is better, or they are just doing better economically. So, the obvious questions to ask directly of the LGBTQ community in the Methodist Church - "What % of members are in the LGBTQ category? What % of those just can't live with the current status quo? What % are so upset, that they just can't accept status quo? What % are satisfied with a civil marriage, and what % just have to have a church wedding? What % are clergy or Bishops?" I would like to see a survey like that taken by this "Way Forward" group. Plenty of time, since they have till 2019 to decide their findings. The survey should be of LGBTQ Methodist members only. NOT the none-LGBQT members. I have a feeling that the majority of very militant advocates of this are either outside advocates (non-UMC), or - excuse the phrase - super liberal, self-perceived do-gooder types, that want to burn the house down to save the "principle" of acceptance of all. This, considering that "all" are already accepted, including taking communion. We are talking only of the expansion of clergy, and gay marriage within the church. Nothing else. I would also like to see a question included in a survey of LGBTQ Methodist members only, that asks, "Eliminating the phrase 'homosexual lifestyle is contrary to Christian teaching' from the BoD, if it results in the breakup of UMC as it currently stands, do you favor or oppose the change?" My guess is that the answers to the survey will only include a small % of the LGBTQ Methodist community that wants to burn the house down to eliminate the phrase. BTW - I still favor gay marriage within UMC, and gay clergy. But not at the expense of destroying a good thing (UMC). I suspect the majority of the gay Methodist may feel the same way. I suspect that the agenda for "change or else", is coming from mostly non-members, or members that are not gay, but think they are on a holy crusade. Either way, I think it would be important to get anonymous survey data from the actual LGBTQ Methodist community, and not just from politically driven "do-gooder" members, and non-members. My 2 cents worth.

totally agree--making love and having rough sex are two very different things--making love is showing her you are interested in pleasing her, and when you do that, she will be more than happy to indulge some of your fantasies, but it should be a mutual agreement on what the rules of engagement are--make a woman happy in bed and she will gladly want you to be happy and enjoy your love making sessions!-RDW

          Here’s why Salman Khan sacked his bodyguards   

Recently there were reports of Salman Khan sacking a couple of his bodyguards that did the rounds in the media. It was alleged that the reason for the sudden sacking was because of their discreetly leaking  the information of the “Tubelight” performer’s whereabouts to the press.

Nothing wrong with Soha Ali khan wearing a Sari: Tiger Shroff

However, according to close sources to the information, it was found that the security guard misbehaved with one of Salman’s visitors at a recent event.

A current source uncovered to a leading daily, ” At a recent event, the gatekeepers were given the duty of the security of a handful of Salman’s guests. One visitor got into an argument with one particular guard over the latter not being humble enough to greet him. When the guard replied back, the guest got irked. He slapped the guard just to be slapped back, as the guard would have none of this unacceptable behaviour. ”

Another security guard who wanted his identity to be concealed, anonymously uncovered, ” We all were sacked because one of us had the guts to advise bhai to remove the guard at fault. Why should the others lose out because of him?” To which Salman angrily answered, “You’re talking excessively.” “Salman bhai is a good human, however his fluctuating moods govern his life. “

          Susan's Sensational Fudge Pie   

A while back I ran across an old “food for thought” verse that was circulating the internet back in 2001. It seemed apropos at the time so I used it in my Carlsbad Current-Argus cooking column. In reviewing this delightful verse, yet again, I thought its message was well-worth repeating in 2011. I guess there are some things that never change, as well they shouldn't. Happy New Year!

I Want What She's Having

I have a new delightful friend; I am most in awe of her. When we first met I was impressed, by her bizarre behavior.


That day I had a date with friends, we met to have some lunch. Mae had come along with them, all in all a pleasant bunch.

When the menus were presented, we ordered salads, sandwiches, and soups. Except for Mae who circumvented, and said, ice cream please, two scoops.

I was not sure my ears heard right, and the others were aghast. Along with heated apple pie, Mae added, completely unabashed.

I could not take my eyes off Mae, as her pie a-la-mode went down. The other ladies showed dismay; they ate their lunches silently, and frowned.

Well, the next time I went out to eat, I called and invited Mae. My lunch contained white tuna meat; she ordered a parfait.

How come you order rich desserts, when I feel I must be sensible? She laughed and said, with wanton mirth, I taste all that's possible.


This year I realized how old I was, she grinned, I've not been this old before. So, before I die, I've got to try those things for years I had ignored.

I've not smelled all the flowers yet; there are too many books I have not read. There's more fudge sundaes to wolf down, and kites to be flown overhead.

I want to wade again in water, and feel ocean spray upon my face. Sit in a country church once more and thank God for His grace.

I want peanut butter every day, spread on my morning toast. I want un-timed long-distance calls; to the folks I love the most.

I've not cried at all the movies yet, nor walked in the morning rain. I need to feel wind in my hair; I want to fall in love again.

So, if I choose to have dessert, instead of having dinner. Then should I die before nightfall, I'd say I died a winner.

Because I missed out on nothing, I filled my heart's desire. I had that final chocolate mousse, before my life expired.

With that, I called the waitress over, I've changed my mind, and it seems, I said, I want what she is having, only add some more whipped-cream!
Anonymous

This year I’m loosening up the reins to adopt Mae’s light-hearted philosophy. Instead of narrowing my path with restrictions, rules and resolutions, I’m going to take pleasure in new found freedom. I’ll broaden my life and enrich it with delectable foods, enjoyed with friends and family because entertaining and cooking keeps my heart light, kindles my creativity and enhances my well being. Happy cooking adventures throughout the New Year!

Susan's Sensational Fudge Pie is nothing less than mm, mm, delicious. It’s fudge and nuts inside a not-so-sweet crust, which makes for an intriguing dessert that results in an "I'll have more" chocolate pie. Susan Garrison of Mesa, Arizona used to make this pie for me "by request" as my birthday dessert.

Susan's Sensational Fudge Pie
¼ cup butter, softened
¾ cup brown sugar, packed
3 eggs
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup all-purpose flour
1 cup walnuts or pecans, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons instant coffee
1 9-inch pie shell

Preheat oven to 375˚. Cream butter with brown sugar; add eggs, one at a time, and beat well. Melt chocolate chips over hot (not boiling) water; add to creamed mixture. Stir in vanilla, flour, nuts and coffee. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake for 25 minutes. Decorate with candy hearts, whipped cream, maraschino cherries, fresh fruit or flowers.

Yield: 6-8 servings

          "U Are Gay!"   
Most comments on this blog consist of:
1. You said he played a gay character for the first time in 1993, but actually he played a character that was probably gay in an off-Broadway play that folded after 3 performances in December 1992.

2. How dare you say that this actor is gay! That's a big, fat lie!  I know because he is my boyfriend, and we're in love and we hug and kiss all the time, and we're going to get married as soon as I'm old enough!

But the other day someone wrote this comment:
"U Are Gay!"

Twelve times.

Once it was "U Are Gay Gay Gay!!!!"

Um....ya think so?


This blog describes my coming out process in detail, plus about 100 of my boyfriends, dates, and hookup, and the gay content of about 1000 books, movies, tv shows, comic books, songs, paintings, and advertisements.

 It should be obvious, right?










But if there's one thing I've learned, it's that heterosexuals will do anything to avoid figuring it out.

Plaster your room with pictures of naked men.  They'll say "Fitness enthusiast, huh?"

Write 55 articles and 3 books on LGBT history.  They'll say "With all of your research into gay people, does anyone ever mistake you for gay?"

Tell them "I've been out since I was 17, 40 years ago.  In that time I've had 10 boyfriends and gone on about 2000 dates, and had gay sex about 14,000 times.   I have never had sex with a woman, although I did kiss a girl once when I was 15."

They'll say "Aha!  You kissed a girl!  You're straight!'

And after an extraordinary amount of time and effort, you finally get them to admit that you are, in fact, gay, they will constantly forget, and ask you about your attraction for this or that actress and whether or not you have a girlfriend.

And God forbid you ever mention a woman, briefly, in passing, for the most mercenary of reasons: "I'm going to ask the waitress to bring more coffee."

They will consider it proof positive that you are actually straight.  "Aha!  I knew you weren't immune!  You like her, don't you?  You're not really gay at all!"






But maybe the anonymous poster really didn't know, and just now, after reading hundreds of posts, figured it out.  Did he think I didn't know, and he was doing me a service by giving me a term to use to identify over 50 years of desires, actions, and relationships?

Or did he think I knew, but didn't like it, that I was overcome with sadness, guilt, and pain over being gay, so he was trying to rub salt in the wound?

Lots of heterosexuals think that we are constantly sad, constantly depressed over missing out on their wondrous hetero-romance, that we're all moping around every moment that we're not having risky sex.


Or was he trying to express his own disapproval: "You are gay, therefore incomplete, broken, deviant, wrong, worse than me?"

It's rather depressing that people still use "U are gay" as an insult.

Mostra sui Macchiaioli - Chiostro del Bramante, Roma

Silvestro Lega - L'educazione al LavoroPrima ancora dell'esplosione del movimento impressionista in Francia, verso la metà del 1800 in Toscana si sviluppò la scuola di pittura de I Macchiaioli. Il termine in realtà venne usato per la prima volta in senso spregiativo dalla Gazzetta del Popolo nel 1862.
Adriano Cecioni, teorico e membro del movimento sosteneva che questo tipo di pittura consiste nel "rendere le impressioni dal vero col mezzo di macchie di colori di chiari e di scuri". È una pittura in aperto contrasto con il purismo accademico.
I pittori di questo movimento vennero ridicolizzati e vissero di stenti. Solo verso la fine del 1800 cominciarono a essere presi in considerazione.
Il Chiostro del Bramante di Roma rende omaggio a questo importante movimento pittorico italiano con una grande mostra dove sarà possibile ammirare capolavori difficilmente accessibili al pubblico, molte opere dei Macchiaoli infatti appartengono a collezioni private. Fra i pittori in mostra: Silvestro Lega, Giovanni Fattori, Vito D'Ancona e Odoardo Borrani.

          Comment on Genesis Cloud Mining Review – It’s Not as Profitable as You’d Think by Anonymous   
I was ok with Genesis Mining until they missed an ether payment last week. I've contacted them multiple times but they always give me a different excuse for why I didn't get payed. I assumed the Status ICO caused some technical issues with payouts but now that the ethereum network has recovered they never got around to completing those failed/missing transactions. There is a ton of complaints on social media and forums with people with missed payments and found it impossible to collect those lost funds after contacting customer support. It is unacceptable and illegal for a mining company to be skimming customers' profits in this manner.
          Unsolicited Advice for the White House Press Corps   

In this, what is somehow the fifth month of the Donald Trump administration, the White House’s official spokespeople have decided it’s about time to stop taking reporters’ questions on camera. Instead, they’ve taken to releasing audio of their ever more dada press conferences only at the conclusion of said press conferences, which makes for fairly terrible television. White House correspondents have responded to the blackout by taking photos of their socks (CNN’s Jim Acosta), posting still photos of spokespeople, sending in sketch artists to make the whole place look like a mob trial (again, CNN), and grousing at the spokespeople as they attempt to spokesperson-ify (again, Acosta).

For Acosta and his correspondent kind, this shocking lack of transparency from an already locked-down White House reeks of an authoritarian crackdown. For those of us who’ve spent our journalistic careers covering the Supreme Court, the amount of access afforded by the secretive, truth-challenged, hiding-in-the-bushes Trump White House looks like a dream sequence about government transparency.

In my almost two decades of covering the high court, I have become accustomed to a press policy that affords access to only a handful of reporters, only to oral arguments, which I must cover with a pen and a notepad, having been robbed—by way of a magnetometer at the entrance—of any recording devices, photographic equipment, and Apple watches. Audio recordings of these oral arguments are offered to the public only on Friday evenings, when the press cannot find any use for them (thus the advent of the Amicus podcast!), and video or even still photos of public sessions of the court are made available to the press only, well, never. Not ever. The justices do not give press conferences; the press officers do not give press conferences; a single, weird, Brady Bunch–style photo of the robed justices serves as the lone photographic image of the court all year, and the answer to most truly interesting inquiries directed at the public information officers is a resounding “no comment.” In short, we dream of the kind of made-for-TV moments provided by Jim Acosta’s socks and Sean Spicer in the shrubbery.

So while our hearts go out to our brethren down the street in the White House press room, we are forced to remind them that there is no constitutionally protected right to televise Sean Spicer and that this is all a bracing reminder that while we like to believe in robust press freedoms in America, many of those freedoms are merely norms, customs, and common practices that can be rescinded at any time. Those of us who’ve spent years covering the Courtroom of Dorian Gray, a place in which the justices get older while technology stays the same age, have learned some tricks for covering a branch of government that has locked out TV cameras for decades for the very same reason Sean Spicer locks them out now: a paralyzing fear of late-night television hosts. And so, rather than panic that America is less free as a result of this no-cameras policy, might I suggest that the White House press corps have a go at some of the end runs around the moving picture and real-time audio bans we’ve been attempting at the high court.

Puppets. It’s a proud and long-standing tradition among legal reporters that, as soon as a judge tosses cameras from the courtroom, the entire trial must be re-enacted for public consumption using puppets, actors, or animals plus the actual audio of the proceedings. It’s been done for criminal trials and for the Proposition 8 hearing in California, and it reached its high water mark when John Oliver turned all nine Supreme Court justices into talking dogs. This is an elegant fix that allows the public to consume real-time audio with the added benefit of felt creatures that will be far cuddlier than Sean Spicer and Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Sketch artists. Kudos to CNN, which has already sent in longtime SCOTUS sketch artist Bill Hennessy to draw the White House gaggle. Sketches lend a certain dashing aura of criminality and generalized thuggery to the proceedings and have the added benefit of enraging White House spokespeople, who believe they deserve better than line drawings and colored pencils.

Film it anyhow. In recent years, activists have begun to sneak in recording devices to oral arguments at the high court. Although the videos tend to be grainy and of low quality, they still enrage the justices.  White House correspondents have thus far acceded to the “no cameras” policy. Why? God made the iPhone for a purpose, and that purpose is to record Sean Spicer whether he wants to be recorded or not. Seriously, what are they going to do to you? Take away your health care?

Cover what happens, as opposed to the spin. This is the only serious point I plan to make, so listen carefully. Because we in the Supreme Court press corps have learned that the drama and theatrics of oral arguments are not easy to cover, and certainly do not make for good television, we have learned to ignore what the justices are saying and watch what they are doing. At the high court, that means learning to focus less on the snark and witty repartee of oral arguments and more on the work product that emanates from the court itself. The reason only a few dozen reporters cover oral arguments and decision days is that you can cover the court from your bathtub. Just download the opinions. By the same token, if the White House doesn’t want to talk to the public anymore, maybe the public should stop covering the show; it’s long since been established that nothing that happens at a press briefing is either interesting or true. Instead, the press corps should redouble its efforts to cover the White House as an institution rather than a sorry accretion of unstable personalities. The best curative for fake news, it seems to me, is to avoid engaging with fake people.

Be a nerd. Most Supreme Court correspondents know that if they want careers in television they should shift to covering the weather. For the most part, we are not creatures built of gotcha questions, Sunday morning grandstanding, or good hair. This is a press corps of nerds and wonks, and nobody has ever joined this beat to become famous. As a result, it is the kindest, most ego-free workplace I have ever known. We file our stories, eat dinner, and go home. As competing cults of personality have come to tower over the news in America, ask yourself why you aren’t a charter member of the Cult of Jess Bravin (Wall Street Journal). That guy works harder than anyone, doesn’t expect cameras to follow him around, and never believes he is the story. Unless Supreme Court justices are selling their autobiographies, you are unlikely to see them interviewed on camera, and when they do give lengthy interviews, they never say anything of substance.

This is, in short, an Oliver Twist–style press corps, accustomed to getting nothing and grateful for it. These folks learn to love the footnotes instead of the glamor. At a moment when we are stuck with a president who is solely a creature of celebrity culture, maybe a White House press corps made of anonymous dorks and dusty worker bees could be a breath of fresh air. There’s gold in them there footnotes. Life without TV cameras is still worth living. Life without a dorky, diligent press corps is not.

          Dildo Camera Users Beware: Reportedly, Hackers Can Hijack Your Sex Toy And Peek Inside Your ‘Junk’   

Anonymous hacker on laptop

Apparently, that baby monitor and microwave oven are not the only contraptions that are spying on you. Motherboard recently issued a warning to users of the novelty sex toy devices. The post reads, “Hackers Can Easily Hijack This Dildo Camera and Livestream the Inside of Your Vagina (Or Butt).” The story about the vibrator cam broke in April, but began trending again on Saturday.

Hindsight is 20-20, but this new report is redefining the Internet of Things (or IOT). Here, we’re referring to a vibrator connected to the internet that allows the user to live stream their — ahem — “pleasure” to a targeted audience. The trouble is some of the dildo cameras reportedly have weaknesses that allow hackers to join in on the pleasure-seeking party — uninvited.

          Lifetime   
This is another technique Tim Holtz taught in a class I took in April using his new Oxide Distress Inks. We used the technique in the monthly Technique Tags Tim Holtz Style Class at The Craft Shack

I picked up a small amount of Distress Micro-Glaze with a mini blending tool & rubbed it on my craft sheet to smooth it out & take some off.  Then applied a thin layer over Tim's Bubble Stencil in a tapping & twisting motion.  The micro-glaze goes along way & Tim recommended having a blending sponge dedicated to the micro-glaze & leave it in the container.  I smooshed Broken China & Spiced Marmalade Oxide Inks on my craft sheetspritzed it with water then swiped my tag through the color.  After drying it with a heat tool & dapping a little with a cloth, I added a little more color & dried it again. Then I used more micro-glaze over Tim's Floral Stencil in the middle of the tag then swiped it through Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistachio & Peeled Paint Oxide Inks.  I dried it & added a little more of those colors.  After drying, I decided to use another stencil, Latticework with the micro-glaze & more Broken China Oxide Ink.  I blended Frayed Burlap Ink around the edges.


After I was happy with the stencils & Oxide inks, I used another tag I had inked with Worn Lipstick & Wilted Violet Oxide Inks & spritzed with water.  Then I stamped the sentiment from Tim's Just Thoughts with black Archival Ink, tore & inked the edges with Frayed Burlap Ink. The swirls are from Tim's Sketch Elements stamp set stamped with Archival ink too.  The other embellishments are crinkle ribbon inked with Wilted Violet & Worn Lipstick Oxide Inks, a Muse Token "Lifetime" hung on a loop pins, a nailhead& a clock from Tim's Custom Fasteners & 3 butterflies from Botanical Remnant Rubs.

TIP - This was a very easy technique but it's hard to see the flower pattern in the center.  I think I may have used more of a grinding motion instead of tapping & twisting when I applied the micro-glaze so it may have gotten under the stencil.

Hope you enjoyed my tag & TFL!








          Distress Ink Technique Binder Notebook   



In April, I was lucky enough to take a class with Tim Holtz. He taught several techniques using his new Distress Oxide Inks from Ranger. I decided to make a divider tag to put between my Creative Chemistry Distress Ink tags & the Distress Oxide Ink Technique tags in my Idea-ology Worn Binder Notebook.  I figured there was no better way to ink it than color blocking using all 12 current colors!

I used the "direct to paper" (DTP) technique by pressing the ink pad directly onto a Ranger #8 tag.


Then using Ranger's Distress Sprayer I spritzed it with water & dried it with a heat tool.
Not all 12 colors would fit separately on the tag so I left a little "white space" between the "bottom" colors.  Then I added the "top" colors, inking over the "white space" & overlapping the colors on each side.  I dried after each color was added so they would be layered & not blended. After the entire tag was covered you could really see how the layering worked.

I stamped the title in Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink using Tim's Worn Text Stamp Set from Stampers Anonymous.  I also typed some of the oxide ink tips Tim had given us in class & on his videos then adhered it to the back of the tag.


The finished technique tags were then placed in Idea-ology Page Pockets & stored in my Idea-ology Worn Binder Notebook.  The cherry on top was Tim & Mario autographing my notebook!

  












It was an awesome class, the companies were so generous with their products & Tim's a fabulous teacher!! Oh & I can't forget Mario, he  made the labels for the notebook plus keeps everything organized before & during the classes!

TFL!




          Happy Birthday To Me!   
I was lucky enough to take a class with Tim last month where he taught several techniques using the new oxides inks. This was my tag using one of the techniques which we did in last night's class, Technique Tags Tim Holtz Style at The Craft Shack.  Can you tell my birthday is this month?

The background was done by layering Tim's yummy distress oxide inks.  Smoosh the inks on a craft mat, spritz with water, drag through the inks once & dry.  Then tap into the remaining ink, dry & repeat changing your ink if necessary or adding another color.  I probably did 15 layers because each layer only covers a small area at a time.  The key is drying between layers.  Remember Tim's advice...wet on dry layers, wet on wet blends & it can create mud!

The technique is lifting the background color using a stencil & water.  Spray the stencil with water, wipe the edges of the stencil to avoid having a large strip on the background.  Lay the stencil over the tag, using a paper towel press down & blot to absorb any water in the open area.  Lift the stencil off & quickly blot off the remaining water from the tag with the paper towel.  This will lift some of the color off the tag, leaving the image of the stencil!  Isn't that cool?

It's hard to see in the photo but I think the key is lots of water on the stencil & blotting right after lifting the stencil off the tag.  Hope you give it a try!  Oh & how about that fluffy bow?  TFL!

          April Flowers   
This is my tag for The Craft Shack's April Technique Tag Tim Holtz Style Class.  We are re-visiting Tim's past techniques & this month we did distressed enamel from Day 7 of 12 Tags of Christmas 2007.

I did like the green Tim used, so following his instructions I smooshed Shabby Shutters over a #10 tag, then clear embossed before the ink dried.  Once cool, I went over it with Frayed Burlap.  I just love the enamel look.

Since the background was something "old", I decided to go with everything new for the image on the panel!  I stamped a flower from Tim's Illustrated Garden on another tag using Wilted Violet & Peeled Paint Oxides then clear embossed it.  After it cooled, I blended Frayed Burlap over top then stamped the sentiment from the Good Thoughts Set in Jet Black Archival Ink.  I cut it out then distressed the edges before matting it in black.  I added a photo corner then popped it up on the background.  Just love how the Oxides look!

To embellish, I used "4" from the Mini Numerals & since it was shiny I toned it down with Hickory Smoke Paint.  I also painted the Numbered Brad "17" (because yesterday was 4/17) so it would stand out on a piece of Thrift Shop Ephemera.  I added a Word Key & an ornate corner painted with Hickory Smoke too.  The butterfly was inked with Wilted Violet & spritzed with water.  The crinkle ribbon was inked with Wilted Violet & Peeled Paint.  When I made the fluffy bow I mixed jute string in to give it a little more interest.



          Butterfly Sympathy   
This was my shoebox project for a recent Splitcoaststampers get together in Ilion, NY.  I got the idea from a card I saw on Pinterest by Patsy Collins.  The layout is the same but I used a different stencil, colors, & I stamped a flower instead of using a die cut.  I thought it was a very pretty card & decided on using a sympathy sentiment & verse instead of making a birthday card.  The photo doesn't do it justice either!

To make the background, I used a little trick I saw Jennifer McGuire do by putting Glad Press 'n Seal around a small bread board with the sticky side up.  This will keep the cardstock in place without having to hold it or use adhesive.

The SU Whisper White background was done by blending Cracked Pistachio in the center of Tim Holtz's Latticework Stencil then adding Antique Linen, around the outside of the cracked pistachio & a little in the middle.

Next using my Misti, I stamped a flower from Tim Holtz Wildflowers using Peeled Paint & Dried Marigold Markers & a sentiment from SU Love & Sympathy set with a VersaFine Onyx Black Mini Ink Pad.

The dots are from SU Gorgeous Grunge & randomly stamped in Antique Linen.

I decided to use one of the butterflies from Tim Holtz's Mini Detailed Butterfly Dies cut in SU Whisper White with SU Vellum underneath.  I added a Zva Mini Taupe Pearl on the butterfly.

It was a quick & easy card...hope you give it a try.  TFL!
          Learning to Fly   
This is a tag I made for The Craft Shack's monthly Technique Tags Tim Holtz Style Class.  For March, I chose Tim's day 3 from 12 tags of christmas 2007 where he used multiple colors of distress embossing powder on one stamp.

I loved the idea of using more than 1 color of EP on Tim's wildflower images (fired brick & peeled paint).  Unfortunately, his distressed EP are discontinued but I did have some that I've never used & Lisa had several colors in the shop.  These EPs are so cool I really don't understand why they're no longer made. When heated, they're rough (distressed), not shiny plus you can't overheat them!  Of course you could use any type of EP using this technique so check out the link above to Tim's tag & give it a try!

So with an old product, I used a few new ones...all of the oxide inks except a few. They are so creamy & blended perfectly on my background!  I love the way they look after being spritzed with water.  I can't wait to use them in more projects!!  The new mini butterfly die was perfect for the finishing touch!

          Frosty!   
Although Tim Holtz isn't doing his monthly tag challenge this year, we have so much to learn so we decided to continue making tags using his past techniques.  I got together with my peeps at The Craft Shack to make our versions of Tim's Day 2 of 12 Tag of Christmas from December 2, 2007.  His technique was embossed painted resist & we really loved how the background was inked too.


The snowflakes & background were done following his instructions.  I first stamped the tall pine trees m iced spruced ink using a frayed burlap marker on the trunks but it was very light so I offset stamped in peeled paint & walnut stain.


When I put the glass glitter over the stickles, I ended up with blogs of glitter.  I used my pick to spread the glitter around & remove some of the bigger chunks.  I decided to research adhering glass glitter & found a tip on using Modge Podge.  My peeps tried it & not only did it dry quick but it was easier to control the "dots" by using the tip of a small paint brush.  I should have put my stickles on my mat then dotted my project.  I added stickles without glitter, a strip of bling & a few random pieces of bling.  We made ghost snowflakes from window sheets & Tim's mini snowflake die.


To finish up, I painted a Frosty token & added it to my fluffy bow along with a skate charm.  BTW, I learned how to make my fabulous fluffy bow from Frederique Sleijpen-Mommers.  I've never been able to master bow makng but Freddie's fluffy bow tutorial made it so easy!  Hope you check it out.

Hope you enjoyed my tag & check out one of my peep's blog, Lisa Brown AKA Runs with Scissors's blog for her version!  TFL!

          'Tis The Season - Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2016 Technique Remix - December 2016   
Our group got together yesterday at The Craft Shack to make Tim Holtz's last tag for 2016.  It's bitter sweet because we loved the technique remix but we can't wait to see what he has in store for 2017.  I pulled the instructions together & made my tag as a sample then Lisa gets all the tools & supplies including various embellishments, papers, etc ready.  Everyone in the group chose what they wanted to use to put their own spin on the tag.  We always look forward to getting together for a few laughs!

The 1st technique was Shadowpress from May 2014. The debossed shadow press folders & shadow press station are genius!  I decided on 'TIS THE SEASON from the Christmas #1 set. It was so easy putting the embossing ink on with the mini brayer & I love how the Ranger Gold EP looks.  On the tiles I used Yuletide paper, "believe" typed token with a star fastener, a snowflake with a mini brad, a "25" mini plaquettes, a Christmas word band, ephemera & a large mirror star.

The 2nd technique was Burlap from December 2015 & Punches.  On the burlap I used the Nordic stencil with peeled paint spray stain. This is one of my favorite techniques...just love the texture.  I don't have the punches so I used the mini holiday greens cut from different colors of kraft core cardstock & hot glued them together,  I added 2 jingle brads & a bow at the top.

To finish it off I splatter white picket fence paint over the entire tag.

Thanks to Tim for another great tag!  TFL!
          Eat More Cake!   
My BFF Lisa & I are always looking for new things to try so when I found the faux crazed porcelain technique on Splitcoaststampers I decided to try it when I made her birthday card.  I thought it looked pretty neat but mine didn't turn out like theirs did & here's why...

The technique calls for Distress Picket Fence Crackle Paint over chipboard.  Well I love red & thought red showing through the picket fence crackle instead of natural chipboard would be so pretty. So I inked the chipboard with fired brick & painted over it with Picket Fence.  Well you can probably guess how the ink reacted when I put the Picket Fence paint over it.  Bingo!  The ink was reactivated so the Picket Fence paint was no longer white, it was, well pinkish!  I should have known better & left the chipboard natural.  I'm gonna give it another try because I think it's such a neat technique!!

What did go right...It was die cut with Spellbinders Labels 3 prior to painting.  I embossed it using UTEE then stamped the sentiment from Tim Holtz's Handwritten Sentiments Stamp Set with black archival ink then embossed it again using the UTEE.  The SU Red Riding Hood card front was embossed using We R Memory Keepers Quilted EF.

It's it wonderful when friends understand & still like your screw ups???  I love you Lisa!!

          Comment on Why Modern Architecture sucks by Anonymous   
Two more effective voices: Paul Molyneux Lauren Southern There are others - I'll list as I recall
          Comment on Why Modern Architecture sucks by Anonymous   
Nikos Salingaros has a very readable article titled Architecture, Patterns, and Mathematics here: http://www.emis.de/journals/NNJ/Salingaros.html Below are a few excerpts to illustrate what it's about, including some amazing brayings by a certain Adolph Loos and Le Corbusier himself. […] Before the era of mass education, and for a great many people still today, architectural patterns represent one of the few primary contacts with mathematics. Tilings and visual patterns are a "visible tip" of mathematics, which otherwise requires learning a special language to understand and appreciate. Patterns manifest the innate creative ability and talent that all human beings have for mathematics. The necessity for patterns in the visual environment of a developing child is acknowledged by child psychologists as being highly instrumental. One specific instance of traditional material culture, oriental carpets, represent a several-millennia-old discipline of creating and reproducing visual patterns. A close link exists between carpet designs and mathematical rules for organizing complexity [6,7]. A second example, floor pavements in Western architecture, is now appreciated as being a repository -- hence, a type of textbook for its time -- of mathematical information [8]. […] We are interested here in what happened in the twentieth century. The Austrian architect Adolf Loos banned ornament from architecture in 1908 with these preposterous, unsupported statements: "The evolution of culture is synonymous with the removal of ornament from utilitarian objects. ... not only is ornament produced by criminals but also a crime is committed through the fact that ornament inflicts serious injury on people's health, on the national budget and hence on cultural evolution. ...Freedom from ornament is a sign of spiritual strength." [13] This hostile, racist sentiment was shared by the Swiss architect Le Corbusier: "Decoration is of a sensorial and elementary order, as is color, and is suited to simple races, peasants and savages.... The peasant loves ornament and decorates his walls." [14] Thus they condemned the material culture of mankind from all around the globe, accumulated over millennia. While these condemnations may seem actions of merely stylistic interest, in fact they had indirect but serious consequences. The elimination of ornament removes all ordered structural differentiations from the range of scales 5mm to 2m or thereabouts. That corresponds to the human scale of structures, i.e., the sizes of the eye, finger, hand, arm, body, etc. In the Modernist design canon, patterns cannot be defined on those scales. Therefore, modernism removes mathematical information from the built environment. Looking around at twentieth century buildings, one is hard-pressed to discover visual patterns. Indeed, their architects go to great lengths to disguise patterns on human scales that are inevitable because of the activities in a building; they arise in the materials, and as a consequence of structural stability and weathering. […] Architects complain that new buildings are bad because they are cheap and tacky; implying that they could be improved by a more generous budget. One hears that: "the reason beautiful buildings cannot be built today is because of the high cost of materials and workmanship". This statement is belied by the wonderful variety of folk architecture built the world over using inexpensive local materials. Architecture is about creating patterns and spaces; a preoccupation with materials only obscures more important issues. It is perfectly possible to build mathematically-rich structures on any budget, by applying the timeless rules derived by Alexander and elaborated by this author. New buildings are usually bad -- in particular, those with a big budget --because they are generated by a negative set of mathematical rules [1,10]. […] Modernist architects took the rectangular geometry of classical architecture, but eliminated subdivisions and subsymmetries (i.e., columns, cornices, fluting, and sculptural friezes). By explicit stylistic dictate, modernist architecture has no fractal properties, and that is one reason why it appears unnatural [20]. Traditional architecture, on the other hand, including that in a Classical style, tends to be explicitly fractal. Fractal subdivisions and scaling can be found in buildings of all periods and styles, and that crucial characteristic divides contemporary architecture from much of what has been built before. The exceptions are those older buildings wishing to disconnect from the pedestrian, usually in order to express power and to intimidate. The latter include monumental Fascist architecture, and its precursors in deliberately imposing, grandiose temples, palaces, and defensive military buildings of the past. […] Modernism removes fractals from our environment. Pure Platonic solids and fractals are incompatible, because the former exist only on a single level of scale. One definition of a fractal is a structure in which there is substructure (i.e., complexity) at every level of magnification. Magnifying a fractal by a fixed scaling factor, say 3, will give a set of pictures at magnification 1, 3, 9, 27, etc., all of which show structure and complexity. A "self-similar" fractal has the additional property that all these pictures are related by geometrical similarities (as long as one uses the scaling factor intrinsic to that fractal). The buildings of Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe intentionally violate this rule, in an attempt to distinguish themselves both from natural forms, and from traditional building styles [1,2]. Some exceptions are discussed later. Recently, fractal dimensions have been calculated for Frank Lloyd Wright's and Le Corbusier's buildings, using the method of increasingly smaller rectangular grids [22]. The results show that (at least some of) Frank Lloyd Wright's buildings display a self-similar characteristic over a wide range of scales, from a distant view to finger-tip size detail, so those buildings are intrinsically fractal . In this, Wright was following the brilliant example of his teacher, Louis Sullivan. By contrast, Le Corbusier's architecture displays a self-similar characteristic over only two or three of the largest scales; namely, those corresponding to a distant view. Up close, Le Corbusier's architecture is flat and straight, and therefore has no fractal qualities. A fractal dimension between one and two characterizes a design that has an infinite number of self-similar levels of scale, whereas the fractal dimension of Le Corbusier's buildings immediately drops to one. ------------------------ Yet another excellent article. The Architect as Totalitarian Le Corbusier’s baleful influence by Theodore Dalrymple http://www.city-journal.org/2009/19_...corbusier.html [...] The most sincere, because unconscious, tribute to Le Corbusier comes from the scrawlers of graffiti. If you approach the results of their activities epidemiologically, so to speak, you will soon notice that, where good architecture is within reach of Corbusian architecture, they tend to deface only the Corbusian surfaces and buildings. As if by instinct, these uneducated slum denizens have accurately apprehended what so many architects have expended a huge intellectual effort to avoid apprehending: that Le Corbusier was the enemy of mankind.

          Comment on Moveable Feast Cafe 2017/04/30 … Open Thread by Anonymous   
We have seen that the Mainstream Media Admitted that they have No evidence that Candidate Donald Trump colluded with a foreign Country during the Election, and while the Lie that Candidate Trump colluded with Russia with was Needed to justify the Improper Surveillance on a Republican Presidential Candidate, to try to gain Electoral Advantage, and to have what is a ‘plausible’ Excuse if ever this matter was investigated or Leaked to the Media, it was Not anticipated by the Clintonites that some Democrats Would Leak to WikiLeaks, and so other Lies to Wrongly blame another Country would Need to be Invented by the Clintonites to try to manage that, as is explained in this updated comment. It was Obvious to Many People that there No collusion between Candidate Donald Trump and Russia, for the Obvious reasons, because there are Only a few ways that such a thing could happen, and None of them occurred during the Election. Those reasons would be that a foreign Country would rig the Votes, or that they would give Money to a Political Campaign, or that they would be the Political campaign strategist and speechwriter for a Candidate. There has been too much time elapsed, and too many statements have been made on this, for the American Shadow Regime to make up new Lies to suggest any type of collusion to those who have been paying attention to this matter. All Countries Know that the American Shadow Regime Selects their Puppet for President a long in Advance, and that it is futile to try to influence that, regardless of what the Majority of Americans may think otherwise, and Many Presidential Elections in America have been Staged events. It was Obvious to All foreign Countries that Hillary Clinton was Selected by the Shadow Regime to be President, but Candidate Donald Trump was Elected. The Reason for that was that the Less Establishment Candidate Always had the Advantage in that Election, and Hillary Clinton Usurped the Democratic Party nomination from Senator Sanders, and Hillary Clinton was the Most Establishment Candidate ever in American History, and also the Most Corrupt Candidate for President ever in American History, but this was Not known by any Country or even by Most Americans until after the Election and we now Know that it was Entirely because the Establishment Selected the Corrupt and Untrustworthy Hillary Clinton to be their Puppet. We Know that foreigners did Not rig the Voting, and this was mentioned several times. It appears that the Only Alleged complaint is that a foreign Country was Allegedly responsible for gaining information. That information was the Clinton and DNC Emails, but the DNC Servers have Never been examined by anyone Unbiased, and furthermore there is No way to prove who hacks a Computer these days, and those who wanted to help Senator Sanders become the Democratic Party nominee might think to Leak to WikiLeaks so that it would help Senator Sanders become President, and WikiLeaks said that Russia did Not give them those Emails, and Kim Dotcom wants to testify under Oath that Seth Rich was involved in the DNC Leaks, and Robert Mueller has had Plenty of time to Reply to the Lawyer of Kim Dotcom in Writing Only so that it does Not cause confusion, ambiguity, or a lack of accountability regarding arrangements for him to Testify under Oath regarding his Knowledge of Email Leaks to WikiLeaks, and a former British Ambassador Craig Murray said that it was an Intermediary for Democratic Party whistle blowers who gave him the Emails in Washington DC where it appears that this occurred in September of 2016, where he was a Master of Ceremonies for a Conference, and so unless it is better researched, then it does Not appear that this Person was Seth Rich or Shawn Lucas, and then that material was then given to WikiLeaks, and this is why the DNC Servers were Not examined by the FBI or by any other Intelligence or Law Enforcement Agencies, because it was a Leak, and the Clintonites and their Puppet Obama Administration did Not want Americans to Know that, and so they Invented this Lie of Russia Allegedly hacked the DNC, and meddled in the Election. We heard that President Barack Obama was Allegedly informed in August of 2016, that Russia was Allegedly meddling in the Election and Allegedly trying to rig the Votes, and that was after WikiLeaks Published in July of 2016, more of the Clinton and DNC Emails. This would mean that the NSA and the FBI and the Others Would have Investigated these things concerning these Allegations of meddling by a foreign Country in America’s Election, and they Would have told these things to President Barack Obama, and someone would have Leaked to the Media Why the think that a foreign Country meddled in the Election, but there were after Election Lies Specifically Invented to try to justify Spying on an opposition Political Party. It is interesting what Candidate Barack Obama said in the 2008 Presidential Election Campaign, that both major Political Parties Rig Elections, and the Video is Titled: Obama Admits To Rigged Elections Back In 2008 at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsVNKmb6jEc , and Obama said that he was a Lawyer working on Voting Rights Law, and Obama is an Example of a Presidential Candidate who discredited the Elections and the Election process before Voting had taken place, and so it was Not unprecedented for Candidate Donald Trump to mention possible Election Rigging in 2016, and Obama did Nothing to Reform the Electoral System, and Many Americans want Electoral Reform, and if there is No Substantial Electoral Reform proposed by (S)Elected Representatives, then we Know that the Corrupt System likes its Lies and Corruption. Months later, Obama continued to Deny any Election rigging or meddling on October 18 of 2016, where he said that the Election would be Free and Fair, and that was 3 weeks before the Election and the Video is Titled: Obama To Trump: Stop Whining About A Rigged Election at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPpt7-QOGKc , and President Obama said that it would be a Free and Fair Election, because he Knew that Russia did Not meddle in the Election, and Obviously Obama Lied regarding the matter that the Clintons and the Democrats would not try to commit Election Fraud, because the Democrats are the Specialists for Election Fraud with their Electronic Voting Machines, but Russia did Not meddle in the Election, and Further tailor made Lies had to be Manufactured to try to justify the Spying on an Opposition Political Party by the Clinton Campaign, by means of their Partisan Puppet Obama Administration, and President Barack Obama said that Candidate Donald Trump and his Vice Presidential running mate along with Candidate Hillary Clinton and her Vice Presidential running mate Received Daily Top Secret Information during the Election Campaign, and we Know that Hillary Clinton Could Lie if she was asked if President Barack Obama told her that Russia was trying to rig the Election for Candidate Donald Trump. I think that if President Barack Obama had Proven to Candidate Donald Trump that the Russians were rigging the Election for him, then I think that Candidate Donald Trump would have tried to lose that Election, by promising Tax Increases, and some other Democratic Party Policies. This is because President Donald Trump is a Patriot, and I do Not think that Hillary Clinton is a Patriot, and she would have Accepted help from anyone to become the President, even if it was in a Treasonous and Undemocratic way, and we saw that with how she Usurped the Democratic Party nomination and with the Actions of the Democratic National Committee, and the Bias in much of the Mainstream Media. The Republican National Committee spent 600 million Dollars on their Presidential Campaign, and Hillary Clinton spent over one Billion Dollars on her Campaign, and if a Country wanted Candidate Donald Trump to win the Election, then they would have Secretly suggested to him, that he Should spent one Billion Dollars or more of his own Money on top of what the Republican National Committee provides, and that he would be Reimbursed after the Election, regardless of the result, and if a President Hillary Clinton had to be Bribed to look the other way for the Reimbursement, then there is also Money for that, and we Know that this did Not happen, and the other way to collude is to be a Political campaign strategist and speechwriter, and the Republican Party have Many of their own, who Understand Political matters in America Much Better than a foreigner, and it was Alleged that Russia was the speechwriter for Marine Le Pen of France, and she received approximately a third of the Votes, and we Know that the Experienced British Politician Nigel Farage wanted Candidate Donald Trump to become President, and People can hear his speech in Mississippi at a Trump Rally, and he gave his Advice on how Candidate Donald Trump could win the Election. I do Not think that Obama had any evidence that Russia was rigging the Election, because Russia was Not doing that, and any such Lying ‘evidence’ was Manufactured by Clintonites after the DNC Leaks and after the Election, and this is Why I think that President Barack Obama did Not mention that to the Public, or to Candidate Donald Trump or to the Congress or the Senate before the Election, because it was thought that the Election would be Rigged for Hillary Clinton, and so there was No demand for such Lies at the time, until after the Leaks and after the Election, and if some Government Documents say this or that, then we Need to remember how it was with the Iraq Lies, and it is because it was Known that they were Spying on Candidate Donald Trump, and so they had to write down some Lies to give themselves Excuses if someone ever Investigated the matter, and Documents can be backdated to Deceive some People. It has been suggested that President Barack Obama did Nothing to prevent a foreign Country from meddling in America’s Election, and I am Skeptical on that, because I do Not think that there was any foreign meddling in that Election, but if that is true, then there has to be a reason for that, and it Could be that Secretly and Subtlety that President Barack Obama did Not want Hillary Clinton to become President. It has been suggested that President Barack Obama did not mention that, because it Allegedly or Supposedly would be evidence to Candidate Donald Trump that the Election was being rigged, but that it would Really be Lies and Slander that could have been debunked during the Election Campaign, and it would have help Candidate Donald Trump, and it was President Barack Obama’s Responsibility to Ensure that Government Departments and Agencies made the Elections Free and Fair, Especially because Obama Knew that Elections are Rigged at times, and he Knew that before he became President, and the Shadow Regime likes to be able to Rig Elections for their Puppets, and unless there are Paper Ballots and Voter Identification, then the Democrats and Lying Bribed and Corrupt Puppet Mainstream Media will always claim Election Fraud if their Candidate does not win, and it Could be that another reason for these Lies was for the Shadow Regime by means of their Puppet Barack Obama to remain as President and call for Fresh Elections, where both Presidential Candidates will be Establishment Puppets, because we Know that there were Demonstrations in America because there had been an Election, and it looks like the Shadow Regime wants a Soft Coup by means of special counsel Robert Mueller to make up something for an Impeachment, and if it is managed properly, then the Money that Mueller spends could be Free Electioneering Finance for either major Political Party, and if Senator Sanders had became President, then the Shadow Regime would have tried to Impeach him on False charges, and that is Why Most of the Senator Sanders Supporters Know that President Donald Trump has to Unrig the Rigged System for them, and while they may not Vote for the Republicans until that Task has been Accomplished, they may Vote for other Political Parties other than the Democrats, and there are Americans who think that if they want a Political Revolution, then they will Need their own Political Party, because we see what the Democrats are Responsible for with the Biased and Corrupt and Illegal Mueller appointment, to try to install a Puppet of the Establishment, with trying to undermine a Non Establishment President who wants to keep the Promises he made during the Election Campaign, and we can see that if Senator Sanders had become President, then he would have been Impeached on False charges in the current Corrupt American Political System. There are People who think that the Proper thing for Robert Mueller to do is to recuse himself from this Conflict of Interest, or for him to Voluntarily ask for a restricted scope of Relevant investigation as a Proper course of action, given that Mueller is a Good and Close Friend of James Comey, and as such it is Illegal, because it Violates the Law, which Specifically and Unambiguously states that a special counsel is Disqualified because of Personal or Political Relationship, and also on the Clause of Conduct and Accountability, and this Sham and Illegal investigation is there to try to impeach President Donald Trump, and it has been suggested that a Special Prosecutor Should Investigate Mueller and his team while they are conducting their Illegal Sham investigation, and to Recommend Criminal Charges if Appropriate. We Know what was found on the laptop Computer that Anthony Weiner was using, and that was connected to Hillary Clinton’s Unauthorized Clandestine Secret Email Server that contain Classified Information, and this Adversely Affected the Clinton Campaign, and was Available for hacking, because People Knew that it was Anthony Weiner, and he has been Convicted of Criminal Activity, and we Know that James Comey had to Investigate these Classified Emails only days before the Election, and there are People who think that Mueller should investigate this. We Know that President Barack Obama said that Libya was his greatest mistake, but Hillary Clinton thought it was very good, and this is Why I think that President Barack Obama was Hillary Clinton’s Puppet for Libya, and Perhaps Barack Obama Secretly and Subtly did Not want Hillary Clinton to become President, because he was the Clintons’ Puppet. A News Article dated 13 December 2016, and which was over a month after the Election, and where James Clapper said that Russia did Not influence the Election, and there is a News Article dated 14 December 2016, where James Comey said that Russia did Not influence the Election, and Comey Assured the President Elect that there was No credible evidence that Russia influenced the outcome of the recent Presidential Election by (Allegedly) hacking the Democratic National Committee and (Allegedly) hacking the emails of John Podesta, and Comey told President Elect Donald Trump that James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, Agreed with that FBI Assessment at http://townhall.com/columnists/edklein/2016/12/14/comey-to-trump-the-russians-didnt-influence-the-election-n2259827 . The same James Clapper would have been associated with one of those Alleged 17 Intelligence Agencies, and only 4 of those 17 Intelligence Agencies think that there was collusion with a foreign Country in the Election Campaign, and that means that any such ‘evidence’ is Not evident, and it was these who then Allegedly informed President Barack Obama, and James Clapper said weeks after the Election on December 13 of 2016, and he said that Russia did Not influence the Election, and then a few weeks after that, James Clapper said the Lies on January 5 of 2017, which are: “The Russians have a long history of interfering in elections, but I do not think we have ever encountered a more aggressive and direct campaign to interfere with our election process than we have seen in this case”, and in May of 2017, the same James Clapper said that he has not seen any evidence of any kind of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian foreign nationals, and Unbiased Investigators said that there is No evidence that Russia hacked those Servers, and Umbrage Vault 7 hacking tools which other Countries now have, prevents detection of who hacked a Computer, and Furthermore, there was No hacking of those DNC Computers, but it was a Leak by one or more Democrats to WikiLeaks, and a former CIA Intelligence Officer has provided Irrefutable Proof that Russia did Not interfere with or influence or meddle in the Election at http://phibetaiota.net/2016/12/robert-steele-the-dhs-fbi-report-against-the-russians-is-absolute-crap/ . If Russia Allegedly had this Alleged long history of Allegedly interfering in American Elections, then Why was no commentary of this occurring during the Election Campaign, similar to Weather announcers saying that there is a long history of it snowing in Winter, and then daily commenting on the amount of snowfall during Winter on their Weather News, but we Know that the Allegations of Russian meddling are Lies to try to distract from the Fact that it was Democrats Leaked to WikiLeaks, and to try to justify Spying on an Opposition Political Party by the Corrupt Clinton Campaign, which Did Corrupt collude during the Democratic Primaries, to Usurp the Democratic Party nomination, and Many Americans want Electoral Reforms that Restore Integrity back to the Voting, and Electoral, and Democratic System in America.

          My Acts of Kindness Birthday recap   
(source)

Good thoughts without actions are just that....words and thoughts. I can't type out here on my blog and share what I don't personally live. So after sharing ideas for acts of kindness and paying it forward on your birthday I couldn't help myself but GO OUT and LIVE it! Honestly, I wanted to be more prepped. To have more time to be ready for that day but the weekend was consumed with a family event and there just wasn't time. But what is better than being there with family when they need you? Priorities were in line and what needed to be done got done. 

So my birthday morning rolls around and I knew I want to spend the day doing small acts but I had no game plan really so what do I do? I take a breath, I don't stress and I decide to do what I can do and enjoy the process as it unfolds. 

I got myself together and the kids ready later than I wanted. We headed out later and then forgot some stuff so we headed back. By now they are hungry and ready for lunch which he had plans for but I just thought I would have gotten a few things before the tummy grumbles started. Even in the middle of all of this I kept my cool. Why I am sharing this part of my day and the wonderful the process that unfolded? Because I am human and I want you to know that. Some days it's hard to let go of the schedule and the idea of "how we want the day to go". Sometimes letting it go can take you on an adventure you didn't know was out there waiting for you. Maybe even being taken where you need to go. 

(source)

I had started the day prayerful and had the desire to keep that peace with me through out the day. Getting all up tight was not going to help me accomplish anything other than having memories left over at the end of the day that maybe weren't as cherished for me or my kids. And I certainly didn't want that. 

If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen the run down of the day. I typed and shared so much there through my whole day. If you missed it. Let me share it with you know. And if you'd like to refer to this post later be sure to pin it for later. 

"I overheard a young man struggling with a high amount of fines at the library as we were checking out. I anonymously paid off his balance and slipped out of the library."


"My team of kindness kids helped me sneak some bookmarks into library books with positive messages on them that they helped create. Sneaky sneaky. .. hope it brings a smile to someone's face"
 
"Not just people need kindness. We stopped to feed the ducks and also share our bread with any other kids wanting to feed the ducks today too. My kindness crew (aka my kids) have been calling today "operation good deeds" and then excitedly asking "what are we going to do next????""


"Ice cream anyone? While at McDonald's as a birthday lunch for our foster daughter, I ordered 20 ice cream cones and passed them out to other people there :) one lady asked how much there where. When I told her they were free and explained I was spreading cheer today for my birthday she said "well this is cheer indeed!""
 

"Pictures just cant convey the happy, gratitude and surprise of the recipents as I walked around Mcdonalds handing out ice cream cones. I even ran into someone i knew and i got to treat her and her kids today."
"Easiest way to do random acts of kindness any day is simply hold open the door for someone and share your smile with them. So often we are engaged in our phones and we aren't so good at being the real kind of "social" anymore. I'm always surprised at how surprised other people are when I smile at them or say hello or thank them and use their name. Its the little things. .....the little things are the big things"


(source)

"Only takes a quarter to give a little happiness and get a smile. Next stop in our random acts of kindness day was game stop at the grocery store. Lots of kids wishing they had quarters. We were happy to dish them out."


"After passing out quarters to the kids that were around we left some on all sorts of different games, rides and candy machines in two different spots at the store. The kids were so excited - both the receivers and my own doing the giving. We swung back around to see if any of our quarters had been taken. We saw a group of kids so excited to find the quarters and then their mother told them to put them back. I don't know what she was only thinking nor can I judge but I'm sure she thought she was doing the right thing. I told my kids "sometimes we don't get to see the fruits of our labors. Sometimes you just do good and you never know what the outcome is....""

"Hiding a little surprise around the $1 store . Some we handed directly to people and some we placed around the store in different sections."
 

"Just one more. This was a favorite. One I've wanted to do for awhile now. I stood and searched the check out lines for the "right" person. I had been prayerful all day through the acts of service we chose to do. With this gesture I wanted to find someone who really needed it. Even though I would have no idea who that was, I kept a prayer in my heart to be guided with my choice. I didn't have any fear approaching this woman when I felt like this was the right choice. I embraced her, told her I'd like to pay for her groceries and she didn't know what to do . "Seriously? You would do that?" She had a very quiet voice. When it was all taken care she said "god bless you"..... its been a wonderful day. Full of heart. I hope my kids remember this day and I hope this day repeats itself again in a new way with new experiences and new people to give smiles too. Thanks for peeking into my birthday "

          Career Interviews   
I was reading Robbie's MIT MBA blog and he had a brilliant idea.

Robbie is doing his MBA from the SDM in MIT.

What is the SDM?

The System Design and Management (SDM) program was created at MIT to educate future technical leaders in architecting, engineering, and designing complex products and systems and to give them the leadership and management skills necessary to do that successfully across organizations.

Robbie has 10 yrs of experience hence he is suited for this course. Where can he go from here? He says:

my career path is leading me to be a CIO, CTO, VP of Engineering, or CEO/Founder. But how do I pick the one I want to do? The CIO role is typically quite different than CTO or VP of Engineering.

He faces a fundamental problem which is true at any level. What exactly does a particular job consist of?

Even with all the classes I attend and the speakers I listen to, I get very little information on the specifics of what it is like being in a particular position at a company.


When I decided upon "business model innovation" as my career choice sometime back I had trouble understanding what exactly that the job would be in terms of a day-to-day profile.

I found this great blogger who calls himself "yes". He wants to remain anonymous but provides some valuable understanding into his job. He is a technical guy with a PhD who is into "business development".

He starts off with a post on What to do with your Phd?

You spent some years in Lab (because I know nothing outside of Biology Ph.D.'s, No idea what the rest of you do).

Now what?

He then goes on to provide a list of options for the job possibilities including Business Development, Marketing and Sales.

His blog provides me a good understanding of what it means to commercialize technologies and various nitty gritties like the legal stuff, tech transfers from Universities etc.

Now coming back to Robbie, he comes with a brilliant solution:

So to help me decide what position I'm best suited for, I'm doing several "career interviews." I'm cold-emailing various executives around the Cambridge area and asking for an hour of their time to talk about their job and career. I'll ask a variety of questions about their role, the skills and commitment required, how they obtained the position, among others. One of the last questions I'll ask is if they have any recommendations for additional people I should contact. This also will be a good networking opportunity.

I think I need to do this. There is a good number of tech firms in Adelaide. It has a Tech park and the MSTC Commercialization course which means that a lot of people in the "innovation game" will be attending it.

My Marketing Professor, David Corkindale, provided me the avenue to jump into this field. As I was working on a Marketing Individual project he provided me the idea to do a project on business models for tech firms which conviced me that this is the career I need to pursue.

I can use this help in finding the right people to talk to. Will update you soon on my "Career Interviews". Thanks Robbie.

This is Ben Pettingill, Dream Awareness Coordinator. What a great time to recognize National Dream Awareness Weekend in Indianapolis! John Orton led the etevns for Friday night, he is compelled through understanding in reverence. The Dream Team Assembly set up refreshments and desserts before hosting an Open House and Dream Lecture at our beloved school. Everyone enjoyed Lindy Stafford's lemon squares and her attention to the details made for a comfortable cafe-like atmosphere. Katrina Parsley opened the evening with a brief introduction of SOM and related the significance of dreams to our real-life aspirations. Katrina is very well spoken, the knower in her gives her great confidence. She introduced me, the evening's speaker. Dreams, Songs of the Soul was a talk I gave to inspire everyone involved to realize the importance of their dreams. Interpret the symbols in your dreams and apply the learning, then you can more easily share in the blessings of life. The night closed with delightful conversation and socialization amongst friends. The weather on Saturday was perfect for an outdoor fair we called Family Dream Day. The Dream Team Assembly set up the event activities by noon. We welcomed new and familiar faces for the afternoon as we enjoyed a cook-out. The food was prepared by Katrina Parsley, Lindy Stafford and Heather Washburn. Heather is so eager to share her insights on life with her gifted son Noah, who celebrated his birthday with us! Christine Spretnjak focused on speaking to interested prospective students and explaining the many truths SOM classes offer. The children, and even the adults took advantage of our creative activities focused on dreams. Greg Sparrow and John Orton helped me set up the fun booths for Drawing your Dreams and Sculpting your Dreams. From there, the artists were invited to Act Out your Dreams on the mini theater stage erected in front of the picnic tables with their artwork and other pre-fabricated props like a house, a truck and a boat on different terrains like grassy plains, a lake, and even mountains. My heart grew so big when I saw children fall in love with our Family Dream Day.Saturday evening began in a beautiful media room on the campus of Butler University. People literally visited from both ends the country. Christine Spretnjak led the film screening event for The Edge of Dreaming and I was impressed how well she handled all of the electronics. After the viewing, she led a Q&A session on the topic of dreams and the film. She was able to give very helpful advice to a person who often walks in his sleep. We are so lucky to have a director like Christine. With such poise and introspection, she is the ideal candidate for becoming a college student.A small group of us met on Sunday evening to go out into the streets of Broad Ripple. We wanted to share information about the National Dream Hotlineae and the opportunity to get everyone's dreams interpreted for free until midnight, and whenever they are so inclined. Stan Wenck was among the crew that got the public excited about getting their dreams interpreted. With 77 publications in his lifetime, Dr. Stan Wenck (a retired psychologist) added credibility to the notion that dreams are real messages from the Soul. My dreams the next morning spoke of changing disciplines; it makes me happy to know that my subconscious is responding to all of the learning I receive from the School of Metaphysics. I want to send out a big THANKS to the supporters from the World Headquarters, all of my fellow Indy students and teachers who helped collaborate the vision, to all of my friends that came to support me from outside of the school, and special thanks to my mom, dad, brothers, sister-in-law, and nephew Nolan whom I love very much![Ed. note: It sounds like the theme of "Family Dream Day" extended throughout the weekend for this Dream Awareness Coordinator!] bdpettingill []

ps: I saw this poignant scene during my run this morning.  While there were thousands on the other side of Napier bridge preparing to welcome their leader to a oath taking ceremony, this lone soldier was laying a wreath in remembrance of thousands who perished for the country.  While there was utter chaos and disruption on the other side of the bridge, there was not a soul to observe this ceremony.  I tried to talk to him, but he wanted to be anonymous.  Here is short video of the ceremony this young soldier did for all those who sacrificed for the country, so that people on the other side could celebrate their leader becoming a chief minister again....

          Blog Portfolio 3: Making New Discoveries   
This is my third portfolio of blogs I have written for a Newswriting course I am taking. With every week, I'm learning new things about this style of writing that I've never really considered before. It's definitely a more complex style of writing than I realized. Coverage (all the blogs that I've written on assigned readings) Editorials Best Practices for Newspaper Journalists pages 1-16 Best Practices for Newspaper Journalists pages 17-28 Best Practices of Newspaper Journalists pages 29-42 Best Practices of Newspaper Journalists pages 43-56 Sample Investigative Reports Depth (blogs in which I examine a concept in depth) Best Practices for Newspaper Journalists pages 17-28 Best Practices of Newspaper Journalists pages 29-42 Best Practices of Newspaper Journalists pages 43-56 Interaction (blogs in which I interact with my peers) Editorials Best Practices for Newspaper Journalists pages 17-28 Discussions (blogs that drew comments from my peers) Editorials Best Practices of Newspaper Journalists pages 29-42 Best Practices for Newspaper Journalists pages 1-16 Best Practices of Newspaper Journalists pages 43-56 Timeliness (blogs completed before the day of the assigned reading) All of my blogs were timely during this part of the semester. Xenoblogging (comments on peers' blogs) Greta Carroll's blog on Editorials Jeanine O'Neal's blog on Best Practices for Newspaper Journalists pages 1-16 Wendy Scott's blog on Best Practices for Newspaper Journalists pages 17-28 Richelle Dodaro's blog on Best Practices for Newspaper Journalists pages 29-42 Wildcard I think my blog on Editorials is the best representation of my blogging from this part of the semester. It drew a lot of comments, and I think that's partly because I was articulating something I really care a lot about--fostering intelligent dialogue about issues. I really don't like when people shut down and refuse to listen to people they don't agree with, because they're missing out on an opportunity to get a broader and more complex understanding of an issue. I'm glad that the blog itself fostered discussion.
          Anonymous Attackers and Clueless Reporters   
"That may require that editor to personally meet the source, 'look him or her in the eye, and get a feel for the conviction of the source and the depth of knowledge.'" --Haiman, Best Practices for Newspaper Journalists, pages 17-28 As I began reading the chapter about anonymous sources, I have to confess I had some reservations. While it is important to ensure that people can't just throw out false information under the protection of being anonymous, I think it's also important that you don't go to the other extreme as well--discourage anonymous sources so much that people who may have legitimate reasons to keep their identity secret can't get important information to the public. After all, where would be if we didn't have Deep Throat? You understand I'm talking about the informant in the Watergate scandal, and not something else. You just have to strike a balance; the system can be abused either way. It's equally important to discourage people from feeling like they can just throw out any ridiculous accusation because they can say they want to remain anonymous. Once again, I was amazed at how many people on the panel seemed to have personal experience with anonymous accusations--"I've been speared by anonymous sources in the paper several times and it's the most helpless feeling, but what can you do?" What kind of people did they interview for this survey? I don't think I'm remotely connected to any situation in which anonymous sources accused someone of something; I don't think it's that common of an experience. Once again, I have the suspicion that the people they gathered for this panel have more direct experience with dealing with the press than the average person. I feel like this may have colored their feedback in a negative way. The second chapter in this section seemed to address a more universal problem readers might have--reporters who don't really understand the subject they're covering. Most people have studied something in-depth that is reported on from time to time, and it can be painful when you see it being misrepresented. I know I have issues with articles that are written on theatre all the time. And my experiences writing news in this class have led me to understand the other side of things; it can be very difficult to get a firm grasp on a subject you've had very little or no exposure to. When attending two speeches at the Holocaust Conference, there were times when I found it a little hard to follow the speaker because they used such specific references. For instance, Michael Berenbaum referred to an incident with a Bishop Williamson and didn't really explain it, and most people in the audience seemed to understand it. There's a lot of background research you have to do, which is hard when you're trying to play catchup with experts in their field who have been studying the subject for years.
          FO: Petal Pillow   
When you make small projects, they get done faster! 

I made a template for the two peels on the loving kindness wallhanging, and- well, here's what happened.  I appliqued them, I enjoyed it, and I was bingewatching Nurse Jackie and desperately needed some hand work to look at during the gory parts, so I grabbed some yellow and some blue and made one of these squares.  

Nurse Jackie has seven seasons.  


I decided to try two layers of batting and chose, from my tons of batting scraps, an anonymous 100% cotton.  You can see here the depth it gave to the (minimal) quilting, which I really like. 

Last night I spent a very long time creating the pillow insert out of fabric and batting scraps, as well as some home dec weight fabric that I bought not realizing that it wasn't quilting cotton.  I used that fabric in the Gorilla quilt and it being a different weight doesn't stand out at all, but I probably won't mix it again, so it became the sturdy outside of the pillow form.  

I had a batting bag and rubbermaid bin of scraps.  It contained little actual fabric scraps, ends of threads that are too short to reuse, bits of yarn too short to do anything with, and lots of fabric sandwiches that have been cut away from the edges of a finished quilt.  The fabric sandwiches I sliced to bits using my old partially-retired rotary cutter, because I don't mind the blade dulling from all the batting.  Oh, and there were also those tangles of yarn that you cut from the edges of fabric after you prewash it - those are the best, along with the yarn.  Wool is so springy. 


I used an envelope pillow tutorial from crazymomquilts that worked well.  I grokked the spirit of the deal and then proceeded to wing it, and next time I will definitely have less overlap in the two back panels.  It was way past bedtime last night, and my husband was watching me try to cram the finished pillow form into the cover.  He watched for a while, and then said, "We will never wash it."  Which is, word-for-word, exactly what I was thinking. 


The back is (mostly - the hidden part may have its secrets) this awesome batik I got at the LQS with my birthday gift certificate.  While it looks like it may match the front pretty well, ehh, it really doesn't.  It's not garishly different, but yeah.  Don't look too closely.  

It was deeply satisfying to use up so many scraps, and this thing is dense as a brick and about as heavy.  I could see more scrap-stuffed pillows being on the horizon.  

Linking up with Finish It Up Friday.  Happy crafting!

          Grammar Mistakes That Aren’t   


I’ve just nicely started reading a new language book and want to share some thoughts from it. Robert Lane Greene is a writer who lives in New York. Greene is a regular correspondent for The Economist and has published in The New York Times and many other well established periodicals so is well acquainted with modern English usage yet is no fan of prescriptionism. In his 2011 book You Are What You Speak: Grammar Grouches, Language Laws, and the Politics of Identity, Greene “pokes gentle fun” at linguistic sticklers.

As Greene learned new languages (he speaks nine last count) he began to question English grammar rules. If Danes can end sentences with a preposition, why can’t the English?

Here are some quotes from the Preface:

I think flexibility, humility, and multilingualism should take the place of sticklerism, arrogance, and nationalism when we think about language.

Language isn’t just rules and words, but communication.

Greene warns about journalists or other writers who, because they know how to use language well, think they can write about language without doing their research. He compares this to a top athlete thinking he is a physiologist. Greene devotes several pages to humorist author Bill Bryson’s “facts” about English and other languages that, in fact, just aren’t so.

Greene then takes umbrage with language sticklers, focusing on Lynne Truss in particular. The rally cry of her best-selling book “Eats, Shoots and Leaves” (2003) is “Stickler’s unite!”. Greene argues that her “fury on the decline of English punctuation and those who hasten it” is greatly “out of proportion to the crime”. As an example he quotes her pronouncement that those who misplace apostrophes “deserve to be struck by lightning, hacked up on the spot and buried in an unmarked grave.” Greene doesn’t seem to get her use of the British hyperbole. Later Truss demonstrates her appreciation of the Venetian printer Aldus Manutius (1450-1515) for standardizing Western punctuation by “absolutely kicking myself that I never volunteered to have his babies”. Perhaps Greene missed reading the Publisher’s Note to the American edition which ends “Please enjoy this narrative history of punctuation as it was meant to be enjoyed, bone-dry humour and cultural references intact…”

Getting back to my post title, there are two types of “grammar mistakes that aren’t”. One type occurs when the critic misunderstands or misapplies grammar rules himself. An example might be saying that the sentence “Send a copy to Joe and me” should be “Send a copy to Joe and I”. The first sentence is correct; the “and I” rule applies to the subject not the object of a sentence. Such incorrect corrections can be either ignored or dealt with satisfactorily by reference to the actual rule.

The second type, a few of which Greene tackles in his book, are grammar rules that shouldn’t be. Greene lists three bases for grammar rules:
·         clarity – does it make the meaning clearer?
·         literary tradition – is it used (or not) by great English writers, past and present?
·         purity – is it native to English or adopted from another language?

I would argue that only the first is essential. Just because Milton or Shakespeare broke a grammar rule doesn’t make it obsolete. And a rule borrowed from another language, if it makes English easier and clearer, should be welcomed. Some grammar rules, however, fail all three. Here are some examples:

Ending a sentence with a preposition
This is a natural sentence structure. We all do it. But according to a grammar rule, we shouldn’t. (We aren’t supposed to start a sentence with “but” either; I’ll get to that in a minute). So where did the rule prohibiting this particular sentence structure come from? (Now doesn’t that sound better than “from where did the rule… come?)  Blame a 17th century poet, John Dryden, who liked to compose in Latin and then translate into English. Because one can’t end a Latin sentence with a preposition, Dryden stipulated that one shouldn’t in English either. His arbitrary rule was adopted by the writers of the first English grammar books in the 18th century and continues to influence writers to this day.

Double Negatives
Robert Lowth, who I discussed in my post of April 2, proclaimed that two negatives cancel each other. Thus “He don’t know nothing” must mean that he does know something rather than emphasizing his ignorance. While this rule has some basis in mathematical logic (-2 x -3 = +6) there is no reason that it has to apply to English. The use of double negatives for emphasis is common in certain dialects and everyday speech both historically (Chaucer and Shakespeare used it) and currently. Some languages like Spanish and Russian require the negative pronoun with a negative verb.

Split infinitives
The rule banning the insertion of words between the “to” and the rest of the verb in the infinitive tense is more modern, appearing in an anonymous article in 1834. The rule was adopted by grammarians and quickly became official. It likely originated from Latin and Greek where it is impossible because the infinitive form is one word. It completely fails the clarity test and has a long list of respected authors who ignore it – both historically (before the rule was invented) and afterwards (witness Star Trek’s “to boldly go...”). George Bernard Shaw verbally attacked an editor of a newspaper who had corrected his split infinitives calling him, among many other names, “a pedant, an ignoramus, an idiot…” and suggested he be replaced by an intelligent Newfoundlanddog. Ironically, Shaw’s character Henry Higgins in Pygmalion shows a complete intolerance of nonstandard speech when he tells Eliza Doolittle “A woman who utters such depressing and disgusting sounds has no right to be anywhere—no right to live.”

The attitude towards these (and other) rules is changing. Henry Watson Fowler (1858-1933) in his 1926 book A Dictionary of Modern English Usage encouraged readers to ignore rules that didn’t make sense or which caused ambiguity. He freely gave license to split infinitives, to end sentences with prepositions, to begin sentences with “and” or “but”, and to use “none” with a plural verb (e.g. “none of us are going”).

I agree that the first and third rule described above can be safely ignored. On the use of double negatives I’m not so sure. While the rule could have gone either way (that two negatives cancel or reinforce each other), one or the other should be standard. The use of double negatives was already in decline when Lowth’s rule was written, he just finished it off. For clarity sake, I would reserve a reinforcing double negative for dialogue in a dialect where it would not be unexpected (did you catch my double negative where the intent is to cancel?). One tip is the word “ain’t”; if someone says “she ain’t never comin' back” there’s no use waiting up for her.

Fowler’s rather liberal English usage book was published in England which one would expect to be the bastion of prescriptionism. Meanwhile in freedom-loving America William Strunck Jr. and E.B. White published, in 1959  The Elements of Style, commonly referred to as “Strunk and White”. This book is full of picky little rules, many of which are quite arbitrary like Strunk’s ban on beginning a sentence with “however”. White added “hopefully” to the sentence-beginning ban list as in “Hopefully, I’ll do better tomorrow”. Greene argues that in this usage “hopefully” is a “sentence adverb”, and gives another example “Honestly, he’s a liar”. In Greene’s example, “honestly” obviously does not describe the person being talked about but modifies the rest of the sentence. If “honestly” is acceptable in this structure, why shouldn’t “hopefully” be?

White’s inflexibility on the many rules in their book seems at odds with his beautiful quote on language change that I use in my blog heading. I suppose it illustrates the idea that language is very personal: “all changes to language are fine and acceptable – except for the ones I don’t like”.

THIS IS (NOT ABOUT) EXPERIENCE - Peter Shaw (Canada)

For the first six hours, there will be a camera on a tripod, so that the audience may photograph and/or video the performance. The artist will start out in blue socks, blue pants, blue shirt, and blue mask. He will, then, spend another six hours constructing a suit from chicken wire, with himself as mold. He will replace, piece by piece, the clothes with the wire. Starting with the feet, then going up towards the head, ending with the arms, he will cage himself as tightly as possible. Finally, the artist will put the blue clothes on top of the wire suit. Sealed in, he will leave, taking everything with him in a suitcase. He will then walk for 3 kilometers to the city centre, and begin to remove the chicken wire, stepping on it, and placing it back in the suitcase.

Peter Shaw was born and raised in Ottawa, Canada. Currently studying in the Theatre Department at Concordia University, Montreal, he has also worked on public performance interventions in Berlin and Erlangen, Germany. He frequently performs as a solo artist, but has worked on larger group theatre and performance projects.  Shaw has also worked with sound installation, video art, and electroacoustic music. His performance practice attempts to explore various degrees and thresholds of pain and endurance, as well as researching and redefining methods of documentation, reception, and interaction. - http://dimancherougefestivals.org/2013/09/05/peter-shaw-canada/

'Welcome to the Outside World'

in a car you can surreptitiously and unabashedly spy on the passersby. You are part of the whole, but separated from the outside world. Protected by the cage of glass and steel you are an anonymous voyeur who sees and experiences intimacy. You become aware of yourself as a voyeur. Vloeistof places its dancers in the un-orchestrated reality of a road. Cyclists, cars, trucks and pedestrians pass by. The frame of the window provides the cadre though which all things seem to have a purpose. What do I see? Where should I look? Who is a part of the plot? Who is watching? What are my expectations? In this setting Vloeistof uses a suspension that teases. With subtle distortions and interventions the choreographer-duo in a striking manner discloses behaviour in the urban environment.

Krachkisten Orchestra (Germany)

The Krachkisten Orchestra produces improvised electronic sound using homemade analogue instruments, and incorporates the styles of various genres including noise, polka, electro  and hip hop. The Krachkisten Orchester’s homemade instruments were inspired by Luigi Russolo, who invented the “Intonarumori” over a 100 years ago. Each instrument has a unique sound generator, taken from toys, alarm systems and simple laboratory instruments.

The Krachkisten Orchestra is a German-based group that was founded in 2009. Consisting of between 9-15 members, the ensemble is constantly growing and searching for non-musicians or dilettantes and new monophonic sounds. Tintin Patrone (Christina Köhler) is a German musical instrument sculptresses, musician and performance artist. She resides and works in Hamburg. Inspired by Punk Rock music and attitudes, Tintin Patrone examines the interface and coherence between music, art, sound and gesture, using methods of Futurism and Fluxus. She operates in an area of art and music ranging between the activities of an instrument maker, performance-artist and ‘krachmacheur.’ Above all, she is concerned to create free space which is marked by self-determined creativity and a feeling of responsibility for one another.

If you can dish it out, I can take it - Corporal Outis (USA)

In “If You Can Dish it out, I Can Take It,” Corporal Outis will watch several other durational performance works presented in the festival from beginning to end.  He will be anonymously (but conspicuously) dressed in the white shiny armor of a Stormtrooper. Most people wander in and out of durational performance works, watching only bits and pieces.  Corporal Outis will dedicate himself to watching them in their entirety, an endurance performance in its own right, where the audience member’s gaze is a form of active, constant surveillance. You are welcome to watch Corporal Outis as he watches the other artists’ performances.

Corporal Outis is a conceptual and performance artist interested in mapping systems of being and perception onto one another, exploring the points at which those systems are analogous and the points at which they are not. CO’s work tends to be characterized by a sense of humor, an exploration of the aesthetics of presentation, and a tension between data and phenomena. CO makes work that is friendly and accessible to the average person while also posing experimental propositions about the field for consideration by other artists. CO believes art can be entertaining without sacrificing its sophistication or depth.

Symphony #3 (480 Beautiful Notes)Jeffery Byrd (USA)

“One of the great challenges of modern life is to find beauty and meaning in our daily existence. So many of us live with boring routines that we complete simply to awake tomorrow and do it again. I would like to create a performance that engages these issues. Ordinary Post-It notes are normally used for the most mundane communication. Can these small and lovely bits of paper be employed to create poetry? Can repetitive action lead us to beauty?”

Jeffery Byrd is a performance and video artist who has presented work all over the globe. He has exhibited in over 75 group exhibitions and 15 solo exhibitions, and has performed at such notable venues as the Lincoln Center in New York and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. Byrd is a frequent lecturer at art schools and universities, including Parson’s School of Design in New York, University of the Arts in Philadelphia, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Regiones transitorias 2012

19 oktober 2013

Andres Montes (Mexico) and Vloeistof (Netherlands) will each present a different perspective to urban actions, interventions, and performance during the Dimanche Rouge festival 17-20th October 2013. 

****************************************************

Wordactions by Andres Montes 

During the Dimanche Rouge Estonia-Finland-France festival artist Andres Montes will develop a body of work titled 'Wordactions' which is a series of actions and interventions that will take place around Helsinki and viewed via traces and documentation in the gallery space. 

Montes' work at XL Art Space can be viewed on Thursday 17th October 12:00-20:00, Friday 18th October 12:00-20:00, and Saturday 19th October 12:00-18:00.

In addition audiences are invited to witness Montes present his work on two occasions:

# Thursday 17th October 6pm (for 6:30pm)

# Saturday 19th October 4pm 

Andres Montes is a multidisciplinary artist born in Mexico and trained in the United States, currently, living and working in Madrid, Spain. His work “[W]HOLEHOUSE” will also make an appearance during the festival, which is part of the Identity Tactics series, anonymous and ephemeral interventions of public spaces.  In “[W]HOLEHOUSE,” the actions attempt to explore the processes involved around the creation of territory and its relation to the binomial Memory/Identity. The piece’s intention is to underline the frailty of our relation to space and our belonging to a specific geography.

          Gratitude   
It seems like November is the time everyone starts talking about everything they're grateful for.  Thanksgiving on the horizon tends to bring that out in people.

To be totally honest, I've been feeling very UN-grateful lately.  I've been feeling a lot of things actually.  Anger, sorrow, confusion, frustration...the list can go on.  I was talking with Matt the other night about how unfair I had been feeling about our situation.  How going through this process again is just unfair, and how it makes me doubt myself as a mother in a way.  Now, I know that sounds completely crazy, I get that.  But when a situation is out of your control so utterly completely you make reaches of all sorts.  This is a reach I've been known to make.  That for some reason I'm not a good enough mother to get to have the family I desire.  I sit here on my couch and cry about how I'm a good mother, why can't I have these two other children here with us?

A friend told me after Kale died (and maybe it was before) that I need to just feel what I'm feeling.  Not to try to push feelings down because they may not seem like 'normal' grieving emotions.  Feel what I feel at the time, accept it, and move on to the next emotion that's coming.  So that's what I do.  I feel what I feel at the moment.

Those moments when I'm angry at God for having us go through this again, they come and go, like every other feeling I have.  And I realize that a lot of what I feel seems irrational.  And that's ok.

The other night, when I was feeling ungrateful for everything we've been given the past month, (job loss, car loss, terminal diagnosis for another baby, the death of Matt's grandpa) it all just seemed like more than I could bear, and I was telling him about how I thought it was all unfair.  I mean, I realize other's have it worse off than us.  I realize that there are many situations in life that could be so much worse, but right now, to us, to ME, the situations we have been given just seem unfair.

After talking and crying it out for a bit, he told me to go read this talk, given in LDS General Conference in April of this year.  Grateful In Any Circumstances by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf.

And so I read it the next day.  There are so many things that I needed to be reminded of.  There are so many ways we are blessed at this point in our life, even as we're suffering and grieving.  And it's not just tangible things, although I will touch on that too.

"Being grateful in times of distress does not mean that we are pleased with our circumstances. It does mean that through the eyes of faith we look beyond our present-day challenges.

This is not a gratitude of the lips but of the soul. It is a gratitude that heals the heart and expands the mind."

So I starting attempting to be more grateful, and guess what?  I FEEL more grateful every day.  My heart is turned outwards instead of inwards and it makes a difference in our lives.  When I was pregnant was Kale, I was very selfish about everything.  *I* needed to do and provide everything for him for his short life.  I didn't want to accept help, I didn't want others to help us pay for things (even though we needed it).  I felt like I was a terrible mother if I couldn't provide for him everything he needed.  In his case it was a cemetery plot, a burial, flowers, headstone, and a few other little things--blankets, clothing to be buried in, memorial items.  

I've let go of the selfishness with this baby and it's made a difference.  It's made a difference in how I feel, how I act, in every day matters.  My heart has been opened and I've been reminded (multiple times) about how good of a world we truly live in.  How good people are to others.

On that note, here is the point of this long post.  It's for me (and our family) to say thank you.  The past few weeks have been extremely difficult for us, emotionally, spiritually, and for me mostly, physically. (carrying a baby with no fluid is hard, you wouldn't realize it, but at this point in my pregnancy this is the third time I've had a baby with no fluid and with Martin I was on complete bedrest).

We have been beyond blessed with the outpouring of love and support from so many people.  My sister in law Natalie started a funding page to help us cover some of the financial costs we thought we would need for this baby, from what was spent on Kale.  It's only been going for about two weeks and this morning the goal was reached and surpassed.  So many many people, people we know, people we don't know, anonymous people, have donated money to help us.  Our story has been shared and shared again.  We have cried tears of gratitude as we watched that little green bar get filled.  We have been shocked that people care enough to give us this help we need right now.  We have been reminded of how good people are.  We have been so grateful.

So THANK YOU.  Everyone of you.  Everyone of you that has said a prayer on our behalf, that has sent a good thought in our direction, that has given us some financial help, that has given me a hug, sent me or matt a text or email or card or facebook message.  We are grateful.  We may not response quickly, as emotions make it difficult, and sometimes 'thank you for thinking of us' just doesn't seem like the adequate response.  

But here it is anyway: Thank you for thinking of us.  Thank you for remembering our little family.  We are so grateful for so many people.  I want to give everyone a hug.  

To quote President Uchtdorf again: "How grateful I am to my Heavenly Father that in His plan there are no true endings, only everlasting beginnings."

          Stomping Grounds: Ryan Graveface on Why Savannah Is More Than Just a Sleepy Southern Town   

grave1

Editor’s note: Stomping Grounds is an ongoing interview series with artists, musicians, authors, directors, and more on why they love the cities they love, all across the world.

In 2012, still living in Chicago at the time, Ryan Graceface was on tour with his previous band, Pittsburgh psych-rock outfit Black Moth Super Rainbow (BMSR), when they stopped in Savannah, Georgia. In less than an hour, he’d fallen in love with the city. Driving through the southern town he came across his would-be residence: a late 1800s mansion called “The Witch House.” The rent was cheap, even compared to his cramped Chicago apartment. Despite the holes in the floor, he moved in, only to discover that ghosts roamed freely in his house at night.

Ryan started the Graveface Record label in 2000 when he was 19—their roster includes The Appleseed Cast, Whirr, and Haley Bonar—and opened the brick and mortar Graveface Records & Curiosities shop in 2012 in a converted yoga studio, which doubled as his residence after he fled the haunted mansion. Simultaneously co-running the PR firm Noisy Ghost, Ryan plays with bands The Marshmallow Ghosts, The Casket Girls (Savannah-based sisters Phaedra and Elsa Greene), and Monster Movie (Christian Savill of Slowdive and Sean Hewson)—their next record which he produced in full comes out in March. He also has a solo project called Dreamend (“It's just me being extremely emotional, it’s really embarrassing”), a label called Terror Vision that exclusively reissues horror movie soundtracks, and a brand-new label under which he’ll release reissues of Savannah soul, garage, and psych music from the ’60s and ’70s.

With an affinity for the macabre permeating everything he does (“I’m just prone to boredom and I think all that dark stuff, it’s like a distraction”), it’s no wonder Ryan felt at home in the haunted city of Savannah, where he decided to set up shop and showcase his collection of, well, really weird stuff.

More than Paula Deen and a Sleepy Southern Town

[Savannah] is totally undiscovered, and the majority of people just think of it as this sleepy southern tourist town … Paula Deen ... I don’t know what other preconceived notions people have, but those would be my guesses. There’s this underbelly of awesomeness. Assuming you’re a hardworking decent human being, who likes to work and has cool, creative ideas, you can do anything in this town, and people will support it, as long you’re not a shithead.

Skulls and serial killer art: What you’ll find at Graveface Records

grave2

“I just collect all that crap [that stocks the Graveface store]: serial killer artwork and stupid stuff that I don’t recommend other people buying. I just needed an outlet for it. At a certain point, if you’re a collector, there becomes this fine line where you’re like, ‘Holy shit, I’m not a collector, I’m a fucking hoarder.’ Why do I have stacks of John Wayne Gacy letters that he sent to his nephew? I have 100 of them, why? But if you have a store, [it’s] suddenly something that someone can buy, or you can just kind of show off, [laughs] even if you don’t really want to sell it, and now it’s part of a display.”

The serial killer journal that jump-started the collection

“I went what to what they were calling a ‘black market auction’ in a forest preserve in the suburbs of Chicago when I was still living up there. It was late, midnight, or it could have been later. I thought I was going to walk into a furry orgy or something. And what I saw was people that were just like me, and they were all really nicely dressed and there was a very organized auction for all this crazy shit, and people were selling things that I guess they weren’t supposed to, stuff that would technically be crime scene evidence, or dirt from a certain serial killer’s house or this or that, and the only thing that I could afford was this journal, and it was not [from] a very well-known serial killer. It provided me with so much fodder. [It inspired a] Dreamend record in 2010, and there was so much material that I wrote a follow-up record that I put out in 2012. It’s all anonymous. I don’t even want to say who the serial killer is because I own his journal that talks about what he did to people ... but it also talks about his mom and small thoughts about life that everyone has. It’s disturbingly relatable.”

grave3

The Graveface Crowd

[Savannah] is a weird town because it’s so transient. It seems like there’s a new batch of faces that will last a year, two years maximum, and then they just vanish, and there’s a new crop of people. Oddly enough, it’s the same with the homeless culture because those are the people I see every day just sitting around, hanging out waiting until they can grab food from the shelter or what have you, and you’ll make friends with them and then they vanish, and you’re like, ‘I hope that means they got on their feet and not [that they] went to jail or something,’ so it’s weird. There’s really not much long-term consistency at all. You just know that everything is temporary, which is kind of just life in general.

Swamper Jack and other Local Savannah Celebrities

There used to be this guy—Swamper Jack, or something like that. When I first opened the store he would bring me these boxes of really stinky bones and skulls. Eventually, I was like, ‘Where are you getting this shit?’ And he told me a specific locale, and then he just vanished one day, and I found out he passed away. He essentially gave me this gift; the location of where he was getting these things.

grave5

Savannah’s “Hidden Oasis”: The Starland District

If you’re ordering food delivery, generally speaking, Victory Drive is the end of it, anything coming from downtown. And I’m two blocks from Victory Drive, so I’m at the furthest end of what some people perceive to be downtown. It’s really mid-town; it’s called the Starland District. It’s just this really nice creative hub. Some really sheltered people consider it ‘the ghetto.’ I’ve never had an issue here. There’s a homeless shelter, you have a lot of meandering homeless folks who are actually really friendly, and awesome. It’s nice hidden oasis.” 

Art & Shopping in the Starland District

grave4

Sulphur Studios, which is across the parking lot from my shop is a cool multi-use art space, [with] permanent vendors [and rotating] exhibitions. Starlandia is where we get most of our supplies for more artistic projects, [the] label side of things. It’s a used art supply store. There are a couple of cool vintage clothing stores like Gypsy World.

Dining in the Starland District

One of the biggest draws [to the Starland District] is Back in the Day, which is literally right next to my store. They have tour buses that drop people off to get their baked goods. It’s very popular with the older crowd. They’re open from 9-2, but they’re also closed whenever the hell they want to be closed. When you catch it, it’s tremendous. It’s like hunting for Bigfoot. I dig The Florence [Italian restaurant owned by chef Hugh Acheson] quite a bit. It’s a block and a half south of my shop. It’s one of the few places in town I can get a flight of Amaro [liqueur].There’s a new restaurant called Atlantic two blocks away which is really good.

Ghosts in our midsts: the ethos behind Marshmallow Ghosts, Monster Movies, Casket Girls

I feel lame, because it’s all very predictable [laughs.] I’m not trying to be a parody of myself, it all happened so naturally. When I was a little kid, I just started to get really obsessed with aliens, when I was really young. To this day I’m convinced I was abducted. But I’m certain I’m just a lunatic. When I was a child I probably had a pretty sweet dream and convinced myself that it [was] fact. Even though the intellectual side of me is like, ‘You weren’t fucking abducted, Ryan, it’s cool.’ I can't explain it, I’m just prone to boredom and I think all that dark stuff, it’s like a distraction, and it’s nice; it makes me feel comfortable.

I have tried to explain some of the same theories you have explained, along with Zap and his gang, my parents are on the Tier 1 group exchanges, and while they have done way more than us, including bank documents, and have SKRs, they still have no money. In fact, they call me when there Intel sources do not have information.

I explained yesterday about the greenbooks tax documents, and how Obamacare and the Obama administration have set up tax documents that ended last night. There would have been huge tax implications, if the exchanges were to happen prior to June 30 2017, and that is the true reason for delay. Obama wanted all the credit, and set up these exchanges to be severely taxed. Why we were made to wait, or the real reason, I believe everything was synced up for the second quarter, I will attach this tax document, as a search will not reveal this information.

I believe that was also the reason for the different tiers and the roll out segmented system that has now been changed, the true reason, is everyone is to go at once, all at the same time a shot gun start for everyone. We are past all these ramifications, and now the true blessing should be forthcoming. It is very noble that you are concerned about the people suffering, and I too, am thankful, that many that are struggling can now be helped. It would have not have been good, that the tax would revive the Democratic Party, and continue with our bankrupt and out of control government. The greenbooks, was just that, a remnant of the last failed decade for the ending USA inc.

The most upsetting part of all of this, that the government that has let us down, is the one that is in charge, of these blessing, when these blessings were not to be given to the leaders, that have not only failed us, continue to delay and set up unnecessary taxing, and documents, to line their own pockets once again. I wish since this is a military operation, that they would have completely taken over the government, and made announcements as such, and brought this blessing in, as this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The only way to keep greedy politicians from benefiting, from the Gold that has been held for this point in time.

Hope this explained a little why people have been made to wait, and may we all finally receive this blessing.

I included the tax documents, as well as the comments on Dinar Recaps copied off of KTFA, all about these tax documentations.

Sincerely

Doc.K : 2017 Obama Tax year started July 1 2016 expires June 30 2017


ALL MONIES RECEIVED UP TO THE JUNE 30 DATE ARE INCLUDED AND CREDITED TO OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. OBAMA CARE AND MANY OTHER OBAMA PLANS WOULD OF PROVED TO BE VIABLE WITH INCOME TAX $$$ FROM THE RV, thus giving Democrats FUEL for changes and continued nonsense.

I believe during the Trump / Abadi visit this year they made the contracts and escrow for said date, June 30, (midnight) for the Trump Administration to get the credit for RV $$ and to PROVE that OBAMA CARE would be insolvent.

We know how much Trump and Abadi love O .

Notice the tax brackets, trust, estate, gift, transfer etc....... rules ....... before he left office.

"Welcome" - GCR/RV Op-Ed - Saturday - July 1, 2017

I still believe that if Landa/Humanus does not receive their funds, we will not see ours. There is simply no basis for us preceding them with redemption exchanges or private prosperity packages since they were in process before us and have already been vetted.

This update from the Yosef person is simply another hopeful ascension into self aggrandizement. He has done this so many times even a child can read his script. No one outside of the actual decision makers knows when this will happen. I absolutely despise the presumption that keeps everyone on this unnecessary rollercoaster.

Here is the deal breaker in my opinion. It has to do with Zap/Jerzy/Landa not receiving any real benevolent help from those responsible for this event. We are now past the testing stage for loyalty and endurance. We are at the place where vital people are perishing, Jerzy included.

If these people perish, they are the real assets and the real loss, funding aside. Without them, and many like them, the funding is meaningless. To disregard them is to say that there won't be any funding that their involvement even matters. It really does come down to that.

Jerzy himself doesn't understand at this stage exactly why funds haven't arrived. The evil banksters can only delay for so long and after that it is the so called benevolent NPTB/AOP that are delaying. And their reasons may be valid but that doesn't change the need to save the lives of those who can save many more.

Some private wire transfer through private sources that could have helped people from perishing would have shown that the NPTB/AOP recognize that these people are vital. But the lack of that remediation speaks volumes in terms of where their priorities rest.

Given this state of affairs, I can't help but question the real intentions of the NPTB/AOP. The current situation just doesn't scan, frankly.

Nothing is experientially real until we can actually process it experientially. That is why Christ came to demonstrate experientially the spiritual reality that people could experience and believe in what is real.

So I await the outcome of Landa/Humanus funding as the litmus test for the reality of everything else.

          This week in science: hold the pickles   

Tunicates are odd forms of phyla Chordata, superficially similar to vertebrates in terms of evolution and development. Most look about as dumb and plant-like as it’s possible to be and still technically be a metazoan animal. The colonial forms, like the sea pickles, may descend from ancient lines. But here’s something new in their behavior:

Ric Brodeur, a research biologist at the NOAA’s Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Newport, Ore., said that beachcombers in Oregon have been walking the beaches there for decades, but he has started getting reports of pyrosomes washing up on the beaches only in the past few months. He has also been going to sea on research cruises since the 1980s and saw his first pyrosome only in 2014. He believes the high abundance is related to unusually warm ocean conditions along the coast that resembles pyrosomes' normal habitat.

Gosh, I wonder what could possibly be causing warmer oceans? And how can science ever be sure to be an arbitrary, 100 percent metaphysical godlike certainty anyway?

  • No, no, no: Anonymous did not hack secret NASA evidence about hidden alien life.
  • Scientists say up to a third of the marine megafauna might have gone extinct a few million years ago, leaving the resultant population familiar to us a lot less rich than it was. One like culprit was changing coastlines during a global climate shift …
  • Silicon Hills, aka Austin, gets a tech shout out in The Hill:

In just three decades, the Austin region has transformed from a sleepy university and state government town into a national driver of economic activity and innovation. We are a destination city for entrepreneurs, millennials and breakfast taco aficionados.

Then there’s a third option which is gaining ground in some scientific circles, panpsychism. In this view, the entire universe is inhabited by consciousness. A handful of scientists are starting to warm to this theory, but it’s still a matter of great debate.

          LINQ编译到CIL的方法   

Linq相关:

Linq是以下列方式编译:

  1. 首先,LINQ 查询表达式转换为方法调用:

    public static void Main() {     var query = db.Cars.Select<Car, Car>(c => c);     foreach (Car aCar in query)     {          Console.WriteLine(aCar.Name);     } } 
  2. 如果 db.Cars 的类型是 IEnumerable<Car> (即它的 LINQ,对象),然后 lambda 表达式变成了一个单独的方法:

    private Car lambda0(Car c) {     return c; } private Func<Car, Car> CachedAnonymousMethodDelegate1; public static void Main() {     if (CachedAnonymousMethodDelegate1 == null)         CachedAnonymousMethodDelegate1 = new Func<Car, Car>(lambda0);     var query = db.Cars.Select<Car, Car>(CachedAnonymousMethodDelegate1);     foreach // ... } 

    在现实中不调用该方法 lambda0 但东西喜欢 <Main>b__0 (在 Main 是包含方法的名称)。同样,缓存的委托实际上调用 CS$<>9__CachedAnonymousMethodDelegate1

    如果您正在使用 SQL LINQ 然后 db.Cars 类型将为 IQueryable<Car>,此步骤是非常不同。相反,它会到表达式目录树的 lambda 表达式:

    public static void Main() {     var parameter = Expression.Parameter(typeof(Car), "c");     var lambda = Expression.Lambda<Func<Car, Car>>(parameter, new ParameterExpression[] { parameter }));     var query = db.Cars.Select<Car, Car>(lambda);     foreach // ... } 
  3. foreach 循环变成一个 try/finally 块 (这是相同的两个):

    IEnumerator<Car> enumerator = null; try {     enumerator = query.GetEnumerator();     Car aCar;     while (enumerator.MoveNext())     {         aCar = enumerator.Current;         Console.WriteLine(aCar.Name);     } } finally {     if (enumerator != null)         ((IDisposable)enumerator).Dispose(); } 
  4. 最后,这是为 IL 编译预期的方式。以下是为 IEnumerable<Car>

    // Put db.Cars on the stack L_0016: ldloc.0  L_0017: callvirt instance !0 DatabaseContext::get_Cars()   // “if” starts here L_001c: ldsfld Func<Car, Car> Program::CachedAnonymousMethodDelegate1 L_0021: brtrue.s L_0034 L_0023: ldnull  L_0024: ldftn Car Program::lambda0(Car) L_002a: newobj instance void Func<Car, Car>::.ctor(object, native int) L_002f: stsfld Func<Car, Car> Program::CachedAnonymousMethodDelegate1   // Put the delegate for “c => c” on the stack L_0034: ldsfld Func<Car, Car> Program::CachedAnonymousMethodDelegate1   // Call to Enumerable.Select() L_0039: call IEnumerable<!!1> Enumerable::Select<Car, Car>(IEnumerable<!!0>, Func<!!0, !!1>) L_003e: stloc.1   // “try” block starts here L_003f: ldloc.1  L_0040: callvirt instance IEnumerator<!0> IEnumerable<Car>::GetEnumerator() L_0045: stloc.3   // “while” inside try block starts here L_0046: br.s L_005a L_0048: ldloc.3   // body of while starts here L_0049: callvirt instance !0 IEnumerator<Car>::get_Current() L_004e: stloc.2  L_004f: ldloc.2  L_0050: ldfld string Car::Name L_0055: call void Console::WriteLine(string) L_005a: ldloc.3   // while condition starts here L_005b: callvirt instance bool IEnumerator::MoveNext() L_0060: brtrue.s L_0048  // end of while L_0062: leave.s L_006e   // end of try   // “finally” block starts here L_0064: ldloc.3  L_0065: brfalse.s L_006d L_0067: ldloc.3  L_0068: callvirt instance void IDisposable::Dispose() L_006d: endfinally  

    已编译的代码,IQueryable<Car> 版本是按预期也。这里是重要的部分,有别于上述 (本地变量会有不同的偏移和名称现在,但让我们忽略的):

    // typeof(Car) L_0021: ldtoken Car L_0026: call Type Type::GetTypeFromHandle(RuntimeTypeHandle)   // Expression.Parameter(typeof(Car), "c") L_002b: ldstr "c" L_0030: call ParameterExpression Expression::Parameter(Type, string) L_0035: stloc.3    // Expression.Lambda(...) L_0036: ldloc.3  L_0037: ldc.i4.1           // var paramArray = new ParameterExpression[1] L_0038: newarr ParameterExpression L_003d: stloc.s paramArray L_003f: ldloc.s paramArray L_0041: ldc.i4.0                    // paramArray[0] = parameter; L_0042: ldloc.3  L_0043: stelem.ref  L_0044: ldloc.s paramArray L_0046: call Expression<!!0> Expression::Lambda<Func<Car, Car>>(Expression, ParameterExpression[])   // var query = Queryable.Select(...); L_004b: call IQueryable<!!1> Queryable::Select<Car, Car>(IQueryable<!!0>, Expression<Func<!!0, !!1>>) L_0050: stloc.1

"I Saw Pieces of Bodies": Afghan Civilians Describe Terrorization by US Drones

Saturday, July 01, 2017 By Alex Edney-Browne, Truthout | News Analysis

The Trump administration's "drone policy," though early to characterize, is shaping up to be even more aggressive than the Obama administration's. There has been a significant increase in the number of drone attacks since Trump assumed office. In March 2017 parts of Yemen and Somalia -- where the United States is not formally at war -- were changed to "areas of active hostilities," making it easier for the US to launch drone attacks.

Many more civilians are dying than the US government publicly admits.

Through the Obama years and continuing with Trump, opponents of drone warfare have tended to highlight civilian casualties from drone attacks. They rightly argue that many more civilians are dying than the US government publicly admits. Another frequently raised concern is the secrecy of (and dubious legal basis for) the CIA's drone operations in "non-traditional battlefields" like Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and Libya. These are all pressing issues and will continue to serve an important role in ethical debates about drone warfare.
What is often neglected in these debates, however, is the use of drones by the US Air Force (not the CIA) in countries that the US is known to be active in: Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria. The Trump administration is deepening its military engagement in these conflicts, and has committed to the deployment of nearly 4,000 soldiers to Afghanistan. This troop surge is going ahead even though a corresponding long-term strategy for the war in Afghanistan is not yet decided. It is important to consider how the use of drones is affecting civilians' lives and livelihoods in these countries, how those effects will manifest in the future, and the long-term implications of this for diplomacy and security.
More Than Numbers: Afghan Civilians
"Bongak" and "Bnngina" are the terms used to describe military drones in different regions of Afghanistan: Dari/Pashto onomatopoeias because of the "bnng" sound they make as they hover above. Afghanistan is the world's most drone-bombed country, yet is commonly forgotten about in drone criticism and monitoring efforts. Drone surveillance and attacks began in Afghanistan in 2001, yet the civilian casualty toll has only been monitored since 2015. The Bureau of Investigative Journalism, the organization conducting this monitoring, reports that accurate figures are almost impossible to obtain because of the insecurity and inaccessibility of attack locations.

Quantitative data is not the best tool to convey how it feels to hear drones, to think about being spied on in your home or to fear a possible attack.

This means there are limitations to relying on civilian casualty figures when discussing the ethics of drone warfare in Afghanistan. More importantly, and this applies to all areas attacked and surveilled by drones, the effects of drones are much more profound and wide-ranging than a focus on casualty numbers invites the public to consider. Casualty figures can even work to dehumanize victims: Quantitative data is not the best tool to convey how it feels to hear drones, to think about being spied on in your home or to fear a possible attack. Despite the obvious challenges, it is important that researchers and journalists attempt to uncover and communicate the emotional and psycho-social harms of drone warfare. The recent documentary National Bird, which interviews Afghan drone victims, is one such example of the brave journalism needed.
Afghan Victims Detail Psycho-Social Harms
As a Ph.D. researcher based in Australia, going to Afghanistan to speak with drone victims seemed impossible for myriad reasons, including the rigorous ethics approval and "high-risk travel destination" application my university required. Persistence paid off, however, and I had the (difficult, heart-wrenching, yet moving) experience of meeting with more than 20 Afghans who live in provinces surveilled by drones, were injured in drone attacks or have lost loved ones to drone attacks. It is their stories that I share here, though I have changed their names to protect their privacy.
Despite researching drone warfare for almost four years, it was still surprising to learn about the extent of the effect on Afghan people's lives and livelihoods. From the psychological distress of living under drone surveillance, to the economic impact of a disability, to the sadness and stress experienced by the family of an injured person, the Bongak/Bnngina has damaged so many aspects of Afghan lives.
Saifullah, a 39-year-old, was injured in a co-joint helicopter and drone attack on February 21, 2010. The attack -- reported in the media as "Uruzgan helicopter attack," though victims say they also saw the drone launch missiles -- took place in Kijran District, Daikundi Province (not Uruzgan). According to these civilians, Daikundi was (and still is) a safe, government-controlled province of Afghanistan. The attack killed 21 civilians and injured 14. Saifullah's younger brother, a 23-year-old, was killed from metal shrapnel piercing his head. Saifullah needed a below-knee amputation on his left leg and now lives with a prosthetic. The "Uruzgan Attack" is unique for a US air attack in Afghanistan because it received Western media attention (many don't), and the transcript of the drone crew was successfully obtained by the LA Times through a Freedom of Information Act request. It is the only publicly available drone transcript. Media reporting of the event reveals the civilian casualty count. Saifullah's testimony is much more horrifying:
I heard everybody shouting and crying…. I saw pieces of bodies, even pieces like the size of this cup [points]. I lost my brother. My leg was broken and it was very painful. It is very difficult to see that situation with your own eyes, even for me to say it now. I hope that God does not show that kind of scene to anyone.
Seven years after that dreadful day, Saifullah is still feeling the impact. He has nightmares that wake him in a sweat, he discontinued his university education because his memory and concentration have since weakened, and he sometimes avoids seeing his nephew because it is too upsetting to be reminded of his dead brother.

(Photo: Alex Edney-Browne)Thankfully drones rarely fly over Daikundi province, so Saifullah only sees and/or hears them once or twice a year when he travels to other provinces. This is a relief, as he finds the sound "very disturbing," and fears there will be "another attack on me or some other innocent civilians."
Meanwhile Abdul Qodus, a 45-year-old from Wardak Province, cannot escape being transported back to the day of the attack that killed his brother. The Bnngina (the name given to drones in Wardak) flies over regularly. "All day and all night it is there," he laments. "It is nonstop in our village." This did not seem to be an exaggeration: Abdul had even heard a drone the evening prior to our meeting. "All night I did not sleep more than two hours," he told me. Abdul's brother, a farmer, was killed in 2014. He was working alone -- taking goats up to the mountain -- when he was hit by a drone missile.

"I heard the drone attack and I ran to the mountain. The first thing I saw was the pieces of my brother's body."

"I heard the drone attack and I got out of the house, because I knew my brother had taken goats to the mountain and I thought maybe he has been attacked, and I ran to the mountain," he added. "The first thing I saw was the pieces of my brother's body."
Abdul and his family's lives have changed drastically since the death of his brother. They are now scared of taking their animals to the mountain. "This affects our financial situation. Because we don't have much land, we need to use the grass at the mountain. Our lives are connected to our animals."
Abdul described how the lives of the whole community had been disrupted by drone attacks on the mountain. Before Abdul's brother's death, four other civilians had also been killed on the mountain in a separate drone attack.
"We are a mountain village," he told me. "We go to the mountain to collect wood for fuel, for fires. We need it for our cooking and to make bread. We collect mushrooms and mountain leeks. We get water from the mountain, too, because there is a spring there. We use it to irrigate our farms."

Villagers are worried that the drones' surveillance cameras will mistake their innocent behavior for something nefarious.

Many other rural Afghans echoed that the ill effects of drones were felt not just at the individual and familial level, but also by the wider community. Villagers are worried that the drones' surveillance cameras will mistake their innocent behavior for something nefarious. "When there is a jirga [local meeting] in the village and a drone goes around, we are afraid because we think the meeting will be attacked," Shanaky Gul, a 25-year-old from Wardak Province, said.  Congregations of Afghan civilians have been targeted in the past. A study by Stanford Law School/NYU Legal Clinic, "Living Under Drones," likewise found that civilians in Waziristan, Pakistan, had stopped participating in communal and social activities because they feared gathering in groups.
Long-Term Strategy?
It is hard to fathom the long-term effects of drone-induced fear on the psycho-social health of Afghan people and their communities. It is clear, however, that the task of diplomacy and improving security is made more difficult as a result. An overwhelming majority of the Afghan drone victims interviewed voiced unfavorable views about the United States and its allies. How will Afghanistan's next generation of community leaders and politicians, who have grown up living under the buzz of drones, feel towards the nations responsible for operating them? A troop surge will not improve this diplomatic impasse. Ahmad, a 21-year-old elementary school teacher from Wardak Province, put it this way: "We don't want to have relations with the militaries of foreign countries. We don't want it and we don't like them. The ordinary people like you -- we like them and we want to have connections with them."   
Meanwhile, President Trump has repeatedly declared that he will "destroy radical Islamic terrorism," but has consistently shown that he does not understand the conditions in which terrorism thrives, overlooking the fact that  the Taliban has capitalized on anger caused by drones in its propaganda material and the madrassas (schools) it funds in Eastern Afghanistan.

"We cannot care as well for our farms as before," Abdul told me. "When we go, we go with fear, we go quickly."

The psycho-social toll of drone warfare and its knock-on effects for cross-cultural relations and security are missed by most drone warfare criticism. As I witnessed in Afghanistan, the wide-ranging and long-term negative impact of drone warfare go far beyond the civilian casualty statistics most often cited, affecting the lives of all who live in the areas patrolled by drones.
"We cannot care as well for our farms as before," Abdul told me. "When we go, we go with fear, we go quickly."

              Mystery Behind QuestionAnswr: Internet Riddle To Be Answered July 4th?   

    By Aaron Kesel

    I have a secret, can you keep it? A cryptic riddle has been put out by Anonymous hacktivists indicating that a big revelation may be happening on Independence Day (July 4th).

    “We have questions for you, and we want answers from you?” that’s the slogan for a new YouTube channel counting down to 0-day dubbed “Questionanswr.” But what is Questionanswr? Few days remain until “all cards will be opened” or July 4th, 2017 U.S. Independence Day...


              Draft setting lost after updating to beta14   

    I've updated the webform module from beta9 to beta14 and the draft settings have changed.
    Since drafts got a major update in beta14 I'm expecting the problem is with the update process in the beta14.

    Previously all my webforms had draft set "Disabled". In YAML: "draft: false"
    After the update all my webforms had draft set to "Authenticated and anonymous users". In YAML: "draft: '1'"

    I expected it to be "Disabled", in YAML "draft: 'none'".

    Is this intended behaviour? Did something go wrong in my instance?


              Uncaught Reference Error: google is not defined - Location field   

    Hey there, thanks for such amazing module

    Unfortunately, I don't seem to be able to get "Location field" to work, I already have a working API that I use in different part of website but in webform, I get the following error:

    Uncaught ReferenceError: google is not defined
        at GeoComplete.initMap (jquery.geocomplete.min.js:8)
        at GeoComplete.init (jquery.geocomplete.min.js:8)
        at new GeoComplete (jquery.geocomplete.min.js:8)
        at HTMLInputElement.<anonymous> (jquery.geocomplete.min.js:8)
        at Function.each (jquery.min.js:2)
        at n.fn.init.each (jquery.min.js:2)
        at n.fn.init.$.fn.geocomplete (jquery.geocomplete.min.js:8)
        at HTMLDivElement.<anonymous> (webform.element.location.js:46)
        at Function.each (jquery.min.js:2)
        at n.fn.init.each (jquery.min.js:2)

    So I searched a bit and noticed that it probably has something to do with where the libraries are included and being called upon
    Take a look at this

    Not sure if it can be relevant I'm also using Geolocation module on my website but even when I uninstall the module I still get the same error.

    Thanks.

    VPN. VPN stands for Virtual Private Network and it is many things, but above all else, it provides safe and anonymous access to the Internet. When you are connected to your wifi through a dedicated VPN, all of your traffic and activity becomes encrypted and impossible to be read and understood, essentially “scrambling” your IP address and redirecting its “origin” elsewhere, thus granting you total anonymity to anyone who may be looking. Thus, even if your communication is eavesdropped by malicious persons, they would be unable to decipher what site you are connecting to or what information you are exchanging. Acquiring a VPN is just as easy as a few clicks. I personally use Private Internet Access (PIA), which requires a monthly or yearly subscription to use the VPN service. Now, as far as setup goes, think of a VPN as just another application. It requires a download, a brief registration process, and that’s it! Once it’s downloaded and you’ve registered with the service, open it up and start surfing freely and privately. Keep in mind, a true, dedicated VPN runs in the background on your computer and is non-invasive, thus you shouldn’t even notice it doing its job. Remember this if you are setting out on the hunt for a reliable VPN service. Most importantly, do the research! There are dozens upon dozens of VPN services out there, free and subscription based, so take the time to make sure the one you go with is suited to your needs and desires. 

    If you’re the type of individual who doesn’t do much online business and/or banking, you may have no need for a VPN, but of course it never hurts to add that extra level of security and peace of mind!

              Spotlight On: Greenington   

    In the age of environmental responsibility and sustainability, more and more eyes are turning to bamboo.  Technically a grass, bamboo can grow, be harvested, and re-grow incredibly quickly compared to traditional hardwoods.  Bamboo can grow to maturity in a mere five years, compared to the decades it takes walnut and oak.  While people are probably most familiar with classic bamboo there are also exotic bamboos with different colors and grain patterns for a wider range of looks.  Versatile and sustainable, bamboo is a material worth talking about.  Today let’s take a look at a company that’s well aware of the virtues of bamboo: Greenington.  


    G0062CA G0064CA Mimosa Dining.jpg


    Greenington’s founder already had twenty years of experience manufacturing high quality bamboo products behind him when he started the company in 2004.  Since the beginning Greenington’s mission has been to provide their customers with only the finest in bamboo home furniture.  Using only the best materials and finest craftsmen the brand strives to create products that represent quality, style, and elegance.  A look at their pictures proves they’ve succeeded.

    GT0605 GT0606 GT0607 Lotus Tables.jpg


    Though some bamboo may be grown and harvested under somewhat shady operations, Greenington has local farmers individually select and harvest the bamboo for their products.  They do not use clear cutting which involves the removal of standing trees in an area.  In addition to using truly sustainable bamboo sources, Greenington also uses the entire bamboo culm in their manufacturing process, making sure they waste nothing.  Every part of the bamboo is used, even the sawdust which is used to generate steam for the dry kiln room and press machine.

    Creating high quality, stylish furniture out of bamboo, Greenington will blow any preconceived ideas you may have had about bamboo furniture out of the water.  More sustainable and renewable than hardwoods, bamboo is also actually stronger than some hardwoods.  Now is definitely the time to consider bamboo for your furniture needs, and Greenington is happy to help with that.

              Always in Style: Eight Classics of Mid-Century Modern Design   

    The trend for mid-century modern may come and go (and come again), but one of the best parts of mid-century modern design is the timeless quality of the individual pieces.  Many designs first created in the mid-century will look just as good in a contemporary space as a mid-century modern one.  Here are eight examples of mid-century design that will always look good.  


    MCMC-44.jpg


    Eames Lounge Chair


    bdfeb1f2c743126d1cc27419a6c20fd8.jpeg


    No list of mid-century modern design would be complete without the Eames’, so we’re putting them at the top of ours.  Originally designed in 1956 by Charles and Ray Eames this chair has been in constant production since then.  Regarded as one of the most comfortable chairs ever made the Eames’ used molded plywood to perfectly cup the body.  Combined with supple leather upholstery the Eames Lounge Chair will continue to add style and luxury to living spaces for generations to come.

    Henningsen Artichoke/Pinecone Lamp


    9e0c668b4cf5db76a3cac508914eeff7.jpeg


    Initially designed in 1958 for the Langelinie Pavilion restaurant in Copenhagen, originals of this lamp still hang there to this day.  Resembling an upside-down artichoke or a pinecone this piece features individual aluminum leaves in circular rows that help to shield the light source while reflecting and redirecting the light.  The ultimate modernist chandelier this lamp continues to look stunning in a variety of decors.


    45e2929036be5183a49de444e830b390.jpeg


    Saarinen Tulip Table and Chair


    e9110e24e35f1eccbc0aa74b32a0d8fd.jpeg


    Originally created in the mid-1950s Saarinen designed the tulip table and chair to clear up the “slum of legs” that he felt was plaguing most furniture design.  He used the smooth lines of modernism to create pieces that had the appearance of being a single unit.  Tulip chairs were designed to actually be produced as a single unit, but technology at the time prevented his true vision from being realized.  Tulip tables are still a favorite, and work well in almost any decor.  Paired with the tulip chair you’ll have yourself an ultimate vignette of modern style.

    Aarnio Ball Chair


    b6e4635da31ac7314c52d8e67a4527fc.jpeg


    This is probably one of the funkiest designs on this list, but is also probably one of the most recognizable.  While it may not have the most timeless style, it retains a look that’s both futuristic and retro that can work in both modern and contemporary spaces.  First designed in 1963 the Ball Chair became almost immediately popular and retains popularity to this day.


    e4cd277b67cea4d162294ee99a378f5e.jpeg


    Jacobsen AJ Floor/Table/Wall Lamp


    f6e3d9de8f6a8c9f742ba3aeab4f813a.jpeg


    Practical and functional with a sculpture-like appeal, the AJ Lamp (in floor, table, or wall form) has a style that still appeals to current design sensibilities.  Originally designed for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen in 1960 the AJ Lamp brings a touch of modern charm to any decor.  Ideal for task lighting the shade can be angled to direct light exactly where you need it most.


    b1d8f556a6cafd7006839b2c301d973f.jpeg


    Nelson Associates Ball Clock


    6a712707239134bf4f4f7f8dcb34f4a5.jpeg


    Perfectly capturing the spirit of atomic age design the Ball Clock will always charm with its retro-futuristic look.  Originally designed in 1949 the Ball Clock was the first of more than 150 clocks designed by George Nelson Associates for the Howard Miller Clock Company.  Available in multi-color or more neutral hues this clock can work well in various decors, not only mid-century modern inspired ones.  


    56a19c711f69dbe0187512c8051b9427.jpeg


    Wegner Wishbone Chair


    2742791a667ff20e5ba99dbde6fb0f06.jpeg


    Capturing the essence of Danish mid-century modern design the Wishbone Chair features a light, spindly, sculptural form that serves as the perfect complement to minimalist spaces.  Originally designed in the 1950s its design looks as fresh now as it did 60 years ago.  The design was inspired by portraits of Danish merchants sitting in classical Ming Chairs, which proves that great design really is timeless.


    83e4f5e362f484442e647fc80b2a7c05.jpeg


    Knoll Mid-Century Tufted Sofa

    8036525d5fcb95b33e79739f5f8bdf83.jpeg


    Florence Knoll’s original 1954 design set the standard for mid-century modern sofas.  Capturing the rhythm and proportions of mid-century modern architecture Knoll’s design inspired a number of sofas that are similarly modern and timeless.  The spare, geometric profile expresses the rational design approach taken by many mid-century modern designers.  A Knoll inspired sofa will look in place in almost any style decor and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.


    2cc0b4f25d2fdfff7477b676787d22a1.jpeg


    This is just a taste of some classic mid-century modern designs.  As minimalism and Scandinavian design continues to grow in popularity these iconic designs will keep having a place in our homes and our hearts.

              Arrebatos de Anonymous   
    A través de un video de 12:35 minutos publicado en las redes sociales el pasado 20 de junio, el grupo de "hacktivistas" Anonymous que ha cobrado fama a nivel mundial por develar a la ciudadanía los secretos de organizaciones gubernamentales e instituciones que consideran violan la libertad de los ciudadanos, afirmó que la Administración Nacional de la Aeronáutica y del Espacio (NASA) daría a conocer los avances sobre las pruebas de la existencia de vida extraterrestre. Un material que en cuestión de horas se convirtió en viral y fue referenciado por cientos de páginas en todo el mundo sin corroborar la información con la agencia espacial como ya es costumbre entre el periodismo digital que se realiza sobre los temas del fenómeno Ovni/extraterrestre. El material afirmaba que "la ciencia no sólo podría conocer la existencia de vida bacteriana sino, incluso, de civilizaciones que han aflorado antes que la nuestra en el universo". Días más tarde ante la presión de la ciudadanía, así como de los medios de comunicación, la jefa de Comunicaciones de la NASA, Laura Castillo, desmintió la información: "Es cierto que tenemos numerosas misiones cuyo objetivo es buscar señales de vida en otros planetas. Pero aún no tenemos ninguna respuesta; seguiremos trabajando para responder a la fundamental pregunta: ¿estamos solos?". Inmediatamente crecieron en redes sociales las dudas por parte de quienes afirmaban que se estaba gestando una gran conspiración de ocultamiento de una noticia que cambiaría el curso de nuestra civilización, ya que el ser humano debía tener acceso y saber que en realidad no estamos solos en el universo. Sin embargo, debemos tener cuidado, pues no es la primera vez que a nombre del grupo Anonymous se aborda el tema de los Ovnis y extraterrestres. En diciembre de 2013, el grupo Anonymous Perú aseguró a través de su cuenta de Facebook que un Ovni se había estrellado en la localidad de Cieneguilla en Lima, lo que generó un leve movimiento telúrico en la zona e inmediatamente, habían llegado hasta el lugar de los hechos militares de Estados Unidos. Incluso se mostró una imagen donde se veía la presencia de helicópteros, que según ellos, eran cerca de 50 aeronaves con lo que validaban sus afirmaciones. La información en cuestión de minutos se hizo viral: "Pobladores cercanos a la zona comentaron que personas extrañas de nacionalidad no peruana habían pedido que se retiraran de ese lugar obligatoriamente y nadie se podía acercar al sitio". En mayo de 2011 los ciberactivistas dieron a conocer una imagen con cuatro peticiones a la ciudadanía, para que inventaran noticias de avistamientos Ovnis. Solicitaban reportar a un objeto en el cielo de ocho luces amarillas con forma de triángulo que se debería ubicar en lugares donde antes se hayan reportado avistamientos. Esto era para crear nuevos rumores y por último, como punto opcional, pedían crear un crop circle o una huella de aterrizaje en un jardín, en un lote baldío de algún objeto volador no identificado, es decir, un tripode. Todo esto tenía como objetivo convencer al mundo de que los Ovnis y extraterrestres si existían y daban una fecha para consumar este hecho: domingo 22 de mayo de 2011 a las 20:00 horas. Los que pugnamos por darle credibilidad al tema Ovni no permitiremos que se involucren personas con objetivos completamente distintos a la verdad, debe quedar claro que estos incidentes son una campaña de desinformación y desprestigio que debe ser detenida. Me queda claro que detrás de esto no hay gente de "Anonymous", esto ha sido una campaña grotesca y viral de unos cuantos que han usurpado el nombre de este grupo que trabaja como su nombre lo indica de manera anónima.
              The Day the Circus Came to Town   

    "Say kids, if you want to have a good time and excitement enough to beat a dime novel sky high, don’t you miss that Hagenbeck Wild Animal show that’s going to come here next Saturday.









    I tell you kids, I was in St. Louis last week and my aunt she took me, at least I went with her, and she lost me, but that crowd coming home after the show wore a smile all right, all right.








    You see it was like this. Uncle got up early and that put aunt in a sweet mood and she said we’d go and see the parade and when we saw the parade, gee, it was just the best ever. All the new wagons and cages full of animals what I never did see before and one kid he got so excited running behind a wagon with a tiger in it that the tiger reached out and touched his hand with his teeth and the kid near dropped dead.







    Aunt she screamed out. Ain’t women pesky things? I found out afterwards there was no danger as the tiger is quite friendly with the trainer and lets him play all sorts of tricks.

    02 September 1906

    After I saw the parade I was just stuck on going to see that show but being as father says ‘financially embarrassed’ and as mother says ‘just a little short today,’ I had to depend on aunt taking me and I want to tell you I had the old man’s kind of a time jollying the old soul into it, too.








    She said she ‘lowed the shows was great but she though she was too old to go to a circus. Then I had my chance and I laid on the salve about an inch thick and told her she looked better than she did five years ago. We had dinner early and went to the afternoon show.








    We got there early so as to see the menagerie but aunt got tired so I got her a reserved seat and then ducked back to the menagerie. I spent five cents for peanuts and gave over two cents worth to the baby elephant that was just as cute as a big pig and then some feller come and stood next to me and I put some peanuts in his pocket and the mother elephant saw me do it and put her trunk in the old guy’s pocket and tore his pocket out. Laugh, I tell you these educated animals are awful wise.






    Guthrie OK Daily Leader
    11 September 1906

    Pretty soon after that the performance started and I found aunt who was terrible worried about me, so she said, but if she was she needn’t be. There were three big rings and a great steel cage in the centre in which they put the awful savage animals they couldn’t trust. Right at the start Aunt said she couldn’t see what was going on because she l had left her glasses at home.









    Now if you kids think I’m going to tell you all I saw at that Hagenbeck animal show you are muchly mistaken. If I told you all that I saw there you’d say my first name ought to be Ananias or something of that sort and then there’d be a fight.








    No, kids, it was just the best ever and when you see those lions and tigers performing on the backs of horses and elephants and the man laying on top of the lions for a bed and the Polar bear wrestling with his trainer and a whole lot more, I tell you, you won’t forget it as long as you live.








    Aunt she felt a bit scared, I could tell that alright, she didn’t say much but she fidgeted something terrible, and every time the trainer got through with one of his big stunts she’d sigh like she’d hurt herself. And kids, see if what I told you about the parade ain’t the candy.”

    Fort Wayne Boy Saw It.

    These two images of circus wagons were mounted together on black card stock. They are slightly smaller than the old standard postcard format, so I suspect they were taken by an amateur photographer with a box camera, standing at the same position on an unknown city street. The photos are unmarked and the only clue is the lettering on the clown's band wagon – The Carl Hagenbeck Co.- Trained Animal Show, which identifies it as the Hagenbeck Great Shows Circus owned by Carl Hagenbeck (1844–1913). Hagenbeck was a German animal trainer from Hamburg. In the 1870s he became a famed collector and dealer in exotic animals, creating the European fad for zoological gardens and wild animal circuses. In the U.S. he supplied circus animal acts with great success that appeared as the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, IL, and the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis.

    In the 1900s a circus was the ultimate of show business productions. Hagenbeck's American circus was an expensive and lavish show with hundreds of animals and acts, but it was not considered a financial success. In 1905 the Ringling Brothers made an offer on the Hagenbeck circus but the deal fell through. In 1907 another major circus impresario, Benjamin Wallace, purchased the Hagenbeck show, including Hagenbeck's illustrious name, and turned it into the Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus. This new "combined" show was, for a time, the second largest circus on the American circuit. It folded up the tents in 1938.

    Since the band wagons in these photos only have the name Hagenbeck and not Wallace, I believe they date from before 1907. The second wagon with the band perched on top in white pointed hats is a well known wagon called the Lion and Snake or Lion’s Bride Bandwagon. It was built in 1904 for the Hagenbeck Trained Animal Show seasons 1905 and 1906. After the show became the Hagenbeck-Wallace Combined Circus in 1907 it continued as the main band wagon until 1925. After that it was renovated, reused, and finally restored and now resides at the Feld Entertainment complex in Ellenton, Florida. It's original color was likely a red background with carvings painted silver.



    In February 1905 Hagenbeck announced plans to make St. Louis the winter quarters for his circus.

    St. Louis Mo Post Dispatch
    26 February 1905

    The 1905 Hagenbeck Circus tour began in St. Louis on April 24-29. The kids of Fort Wayne, Indiana saw the show on May 6. Carl's son, Lorenz Hagenbeck (1882 - 1956), was listed on the Circus Route Book as the Assistant  General Manager. Route books were a popular circus souvenir as they list all the performers, staff, ring crew, and workers who traveled with the show. In 1905 The Hagenbeck circus played in 96 towns and cities in Missouri, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. In total, from its start on April 24 in St. Louis to its finish on October 7 in Lebanon, PA, the circus covered 7918 miles following the railway lines. The longest leg of the tour was 167 miles., but most sections were less than 100 miles, roughly averaging about 30-40 miles between towns. When the circus ended for the season, the animals and trainers traveled 608 miles by train back to the show's winter quarters in Carthage, OH.

    The show toured with 16 four-horse drivers, 6 six-horse drivers, and 2 eight-horse drivers, along with 8 blacksmiths, a Buggy Man, and a Wagon Greaser. The Hagenbeck menagerie required 22 animal handlers with 6 additional unnamed Singaleese Mahouts for the elephants. There were five clowns, the same number atop the first wagon. Morris Davis was the head clown, and his fellow funny mend were Ed. Esberger, Chuck Howard, H. Aldean, and Rube Ryan. 

    The bandmaster was Prof. A. V. Cicio. The musicians are not listed, perhaps because the band members changed over the season. The website for the Circus Historical Society  is a treasure trove of information on the golden age of the circus world. I found an article called Circus Windjammers,
    by Sverre O. Braathen which appeared in the May-June 1971 edition of the Bandwagon journal. The article quoted descriptions of circus band life from musicians who worked in shows like the Hagenbeck Circus. Here's an excerpt of what a bandsman experienced in a circus.


    Edward J. Heney played clarinet and saxophone with both the Sells-Floto and the Al. G. Barnes Circus bands and with the Arthur Pryor band and for some years saxophone soloist with the Sousa Band. In comparing circus and concert work he has written: "So far as circus bands were concerned when I traveled with them, I should say that 'trouping show band experience was mandatory. Endurance, musically as well as physically, speaking was most necessary in circus bands. Without these two a circus musician could not stand up under the daily grind. In those days we were on the bandwagon for the usual two hour morning parade in the towns and cities. The main performance was always preceded by an hour concert in the ring. The big show lasted two to three hours during which time we played constantly, only resting during the clown frolics. In addition, we had to play the 'after show' or wild west performance - and collect tickets for same in the bleachers. All the foregoing twice a day from 8 A. M. to 11:30 P. M. - on the go the entire time.

    "Concert band experience plus the ability to stand long transcontinental tours yearly and a general idea of solo work before the public were the 'certain something' a Sousa bandsman had to have. Playing in different towns every day, some times two communities a day (one in the afternoon and one at night) resulted in some strenuous living, playing and traveling.

    "To conclude and to answer your pointed question, I should state that considering everything, the most difficult band jobs in those days were the circus bands."

    Cleveland Dayton of Ottumwa, Iowa, was a trombone player with the Barnum & Bailey Circus for a number of years and served as assistant director under Edwin H. "Ned" Brill. On leaving the Barnum Circus at the close of the 1915 season, he took over the direction of the Ottumwa Municipal Band and has held this position ever since. His comment regarding the playing in circus bands: "There was no harder work for musicians than a big circus band during my time. Parade at 10:00 A. M., two hours at least. Into the big top at 1:30 for the concert and program until 4:30. Back at 7:00 for the concert and program until 10:30, and very little rest did you get during that time. There were no silent acts. That should explain why it was so hard to hold musicians."

    Another musician with both concert and circus experience wrote: "The quality of musicians was good and bad. The old timers were pretty rugged and could hold their own with any one. Most of the one year boys couldn't take it. The grind was terrific. I have seen a number of excellent musicians go to pieces as a result of this tortuous grind. That was one reason why so many musicians remained in the circus business for only one year."





    Life on the road with a circus was tough work.
    Yet for a ten year old kid from Fort Wayne,
    the allure of the Big Top
    must have seemed
    like the biggest
    and bestest adventure ever.

              Time Flies   




    The march of time follows a relentless drumbeat. A rhythm that's inevitable and unstoppable. Unless you have a camera. Only then, for just a brief instant, does the pulse of time pause.


    Until the era of photography, humanity had limited ways to measure the effects of time on the human face. People could admire a painted portrait made in younger days. Friends and family might remark on wrinkles and gray. But it was the medium of the photograph that gave mankind its first accurate record of the human visage.  

    This young gentleman turns his gaze to the side of his carte de visite so that we may admire his handsome side-burns. His eyes are downcast, serious yet self-effacing.


    * *


    His photo was taken by Brown's of 1222 Market St. in Wheeling, West Virginia. The price is marked on the back beneath a pair of female vignettes. 99cts. per doz. 8x10 copies $1. each. Note the camera and artist's palette behind the address banner.















    I imagine the gentleman many years later taking that same cdv into the photographer's studio and asking, "Can you make another one like it?"

    Indeed the camera captures the man in a reverse pose. Hair now silvered with  more grey bristle in his whiskers. His steely eyes are lifted upward, as if he's seen the world and is ready to meet it on his terms.  

    * *


    This carte de visite was likely made by the same photographer but in a different studio. Beneath interlinked initials, the backstamp says Brown and Higgins, No. 42 Twelfth Street, Wheeling, W. Va.







    The man's name is unknown and there is no date. The photographers Brown & Higgins were listed as partners in the 1868 and 1872 city directory for Wheeling, WV.  Both were in the 1864 directory but listed separately, and in that year Bown's partner was named Wykes.  Addresses were not included in those directories but in the 1882 edition, John Brown had a photograph studio at 1222 Market St., and T. H. Higgins had a photo studio at 42 Twelfth St.


    The reason I acquired these two versions of the same man was because I found them while searching for examples of Mr. Higgins' photo work.








    This cornet player posed for a cabinet card photo at the studio of Higgins of Wheeling, W. Va. Dressed in a heavy twill suit, he stands with his cornet resting on a faux stone plinth. There seems to be more hair below his nose than on top his head. How he managed to play through his impressive soup strainer mustache is beyond my understanding of proper brass instrument technique.








    The musician signed the back.

    To my Old Friend
    Geo, Skinner

    Yours Truly
    Geo. Drurnberg(?)



    There is no date but it has the look of about +/− 1885. Unfortunately his signature defeats me. It looks like Drurnbag? which can't be right. I get no help in Ancestry.com and I can't find anything like this name in the D listings of the Wheeling city directories.

    Any suggestions, readers?

    {click any image to enlarge}

    * *












    Around the same time a companion musician was also photographed by Higgins of Wheeling, W. Va. This man stands with his violin resting on a table. He wears a handsome suit with a long watch fob and a musical lyre tie pin, and sports a more conventional mustach. He signed his name on the front. Eugene Mack.





    On the back is written:

    Yours
    Truly
    Eugene Mack
    (cartoon bird)
    Trade Mark


    The fanciful bird is an odd thing to add. Perhaps it was a joke intended for the recipient.


    While this musician' name is clear, it does not appear in any of Wheeling's city directories from 1882 to 1898. Nor is the name in any census for West Virginia, though of course we cannot use the infamous missing 1890 U.S. census records.



    * *




    The story might have ended there. But I felt compelled to hunt through newspapers for any clues of cornet soloists or violinists in Wheeling. There was a thriving theater and hotel district as this city and a number of bands and orchestras employed musicians like these two men. 

    Situated on the Ohio river, Wheeling is also on the great National Road, also known as the Cumberland Road, which was the first major westward route in the US. Later it was improved with the great Wheeling Suspension Bridge which crosses the Ohio River. If you had to go anywhere across eastern America in the 19th century, there was a good chance you passed through Wheeling.


    In February 1889, Barlow Brothers' Minstrels stopped in Wheeling to perform at the Grand Opera House. Among the supporting artists was Eugene Mack, male soprano.

    The audience was evidently well pleased.


    Wheeling WV Daily Intelligencer
    12 February 1889


    In the following year 1890, the Dime Eden Musee in Omaha, NE ran an advert for the offerings on the New Year Week. Along with he Nebraska Triplets was  Jennie Ritchie, male impersonator, and Eugene Mack, female impersonator.

    Omaha NE Daily Bee
    28 December 1890

    In a return engagement to Omaha in 1893, Eugene Mack, a phenomenal female impersonator shared the People's Theater stage with a midget sketch team, a serpentine and Spanish dancer, trapeze artists, comedians, and a world's champion club swinger.
     


    Omaha NE Daily Bee
    01 September 1893


    So is my photo of a hirsute masculine violinist the same Eugene Mack, the male soprano and female impersonator? I don't know. But the trademark cartoon does offer a tantalizing suggestion that connects a songbird to a soprano voice. If both musicians were members of a traveling minstrel show that would explain why they were not found in Wheeling's directories or census records.

    The whole truth may never be discovered, but sometimes the imagination fills in what we don't know.




    Time flies.







    And as for the anonymous Wheeling man with mutton chops, I think his side whiskers mark him as a distinguished gentleman with a public profession, i.e.banker, lawyer, doctor, or even politician. My guess is his earlier image as a young man is at age 20-25, while his later countenance adds 25 or even 30 years.

              A Birdseye View of a Girls Orchestra   

    They say two is company, three's a crowd.
    And that applies to double bass players
    when there are only two instruments to share.
    On the other hand,
    bass drummers
    often do the job of two
    by doubling up on cymbals,
    with half a pair fixed onto the top of the drum.






    Cellists usually come in pairs,
    though some like to hide
    behind snare drummers.
     
    Violinists always seem to come in gangs.







    An orchestra should have
    a generous number of strings
    but really needs only one oboe.
    (back row, second from left)
     
    Having two trombones is okay,
    but five clarinets is a bit excessive.







    Three cornets
    and a melophone
    is about right.
     
    Although a single flutist is apt to get lost
    in the sound of such a large group.





    And with 41 musicians,
    all young ladies,
    this is definitely a very large orchestra.



    The Orchestra
    of the Iowa State Industrial School for Girls
    Mitchellville, IA

    Reichard the Druggist (photographer)



    Each girl wears a nearly identical dress, with hair done up in a similar style and held with a large bow. But there are few real smiles on their faces. Several have what I would describe as scowls, even though the sun is not in their eyes. Their unhappy demeanor is not typical of a school orchestra, because this was not a typical school. The Iowa State Industrial School for Girls was a place of incarceration, a reformatory for "wayward", "unfortunate", and "incorrigible" girls. This state institution was established in 1889 as a spinoff from the Iowa reformatory for boys. Girls, ages 10 to 18, who had run foul of the law, and often were without one or both parents, were made wards of the state and sent to this school for correctional education and vocational training. Mitchellville, IA is a small town near Des Moines, just below the center of the state, and in 1900 it had a population of 768. About 220 were young female inmates at the State Industrial School for Girls.  

    In 1899 the girls at the school protested over what they considered bad conditions by going on a destructive rampage of school property, mainly shattering glass and china. At the time a new superintendent had just joined the school. His name was F. P. Fitzgerald, a man who had already earned respect for his work managing the State Industrial School for Boys in Eldora, IA. After the rioters were placed under control, Fitzgerald noticed that the girls had protected the pianos in the buildings from damage by wrapping them in quilts and mattresses. As an educator who was also a trained musician and composer, he recognized this desire for music and cleverly set about developing a music program for his young charges. He arranged to purchase music and instruments, and hire a female music teacher. Within a year, the girls orchestra at the Mitchellville Industrial School, with F. P. Fitzgerald conducting, were performing concerts for the public. The discontent and agitation within the institution diminished and the girls began to appreciate Fitzgerald's management.





    The postcard was sent
    from Farrar, in Polk County, Iowa
    on Aug. 21, 1908 to
    Mr. Chas Bailey
    Delavan
    Minn.





    Dear Brother, I thought
    I would write and let you
    know what a great mistake
    you made and how far you
    are behind the times.
    O.S. is of the past not
    yet but soon.  if you
    have any tears pleas(sic) shed
    a few for me as mine
    are all gone.
    Your Loving Sister

    Please send them by
    return mail.
    Mandie Bailey
    8 20 08




    I've been unable to determine if Mandie Bailey was an inmate at the school, much less that she was a member of the girls orchestra. But her sad enigmatic note, playing on her brother's sympathy, seems the sort that an unfortunate girl might write.

    All correspondence at the school was limited for outgoing mail and subject to censorship. The girls, some of whom were illiterate, had regular classes in basic education and also instruction at trades suitable for women like cooking and sewing. In 1907 there were 241 inmates, of which 17 were African-American. At eighteen a girl was deemed an adult and released, but Superintendent Fitzgerald argued, unsuccessfully, that some girls should be allowed to extend their "stay" in order to complete their education.

    His music program proved very popular and no notable protest events occurred after it was begun. The orchestra soon had over 40 musicians and a second lower level orchestra was started. The girls played for school dances (though without boys), and even gave run-out concerts for public events.  F. P. Fitzgerald considered himself a composer, and published critiques in Iowa newspapers on the importance of American music in preference to European music. In May 1905, the girls orchestra and choir performed a cantata, written and composed by F. P. Fitzgerald, entitled "The Frolic of the Fairies". That was followed in 1907 by his opera called "The Sorceress" which had "forty-five solos, choruses, and scenic music."  



    Some time around 1908-09, a photographer,
    perhaps Mr. Reichard the druggist,
    tied a camera to a balloon
    and took a picture of the school
    from an unusual perspective.


    Birdseye View
    State Industrial School for Girls
    Mitchellville, IA







    From the altitude of a pigeon, the school is situated on level prairie farmland with only a scattering of trees. The large buildings set around a center quad look very scholastic, even handsome. The grounds show none of the usual prison accoutrements like walls or fences. It's a real photo postcard that surely was admired as a wonder of photography when it first went on display at the Mitchellville drugstore. My guess is that a camera was fixed onto a simple hydrogen balloon, though a kite might be another possibility, with the shutter set off by a long string.  It was still too early in the 20th century to be attached to an airplane.


    The postcard was mailed
    on SEP 22, 1909 to
    Mrs I  D Beeman
    Conrad, Ia.









    If we move in closer to the buildings,
    could we see where the photo
    of the girls orchestra was taken? 








    These building are too plain.
    More like dormitories or classrooms.







    This one looks too ornate,
    and the windows are not the same.








    Again this one is too plain
    and the little house on the left
    is made of wooden clapboard not brick.





    Let's look at the windows of the building behind the orchestra.





    I think they are leaded stained glass windows
    placed close together in a group of three. 


    That's not a typical fenestration style
    for a security institution like this.
    So I went on the hunt for more history
    on the Mitchellville Industrial School for Girls




    I found it on a 1914 Iowa state map.



    Detail 1914 Map of Mitchellville, Iowa

    The survey map shows the grounds of the State of Iowa Girl's Industrial School in Mitchellville with each building labeled. In order of my cutouts, Dormitory No. 1 and behind the Laundry Hospital Storage; the Office and Supt. Residence; and the Dormitory No. 2. But at the northeast corner, not visible in the aerial photo, is a Chapel, a building probably large enough for 240 young girls and designed to inspire moral virtues with stained glass light. It was also likely a building suitable for an orchestra to give concerts. That's where I think the orchestra posed. On the map I've marked a red dot for that view and a blue arrow for the balloon camera.

    In 1909, Superintendent F. P. Fitzgerald was falsely accused of taken liberties with his female charges. In our time it might be characterized as mildly inappropriate touching and the allegations were never proven. Nonetheless Fitzgerald resigned and left Mitchellville to run his son's confectionery shop in Idaho. In July 1909 he was replaced by a woman, Miss Hattie Garrison. She was a decidedly different school administrator. 

    Only a few months into managing a difficult bunch of girls, Miss Garrison was confronted with riots and accusations of abuse. In March 1910 Twenty-five girls "escaped" from the school and walked over 16 miles to the big city of Des Moines. After they were returned by police, a near riot ensued. Eight girls were arrested and sent to county jail for a few days. They showed no remorse.

    Instead they reported on whippings with a rubber hose that they received from Miss Garrison. They complained of her severe restriction on privileges and activities, one of which was a drastic reduction of the orchestra and an elimination of dancing. Miss Garrison believed that music and dancing led the girls to improper behavior after they were released. She also didn't care for popular music like ragtime and permitted the girls to play only church hymns and songs.

    The story made the pages of several Iowa newspapers. A conflict arose between Superintendent Garrison and the chairman of the state control board. The governor became entangled. Words were said, witnesses called, sparks flew, dirt was flung, and lawyers got involved. It was not pretty. 

    Miss Garrison was exonerated but by April 1911 she resigned from what was clearly a demanding and thankless job. She was replaced by another woman. The girls orchestra never regained it's potential for reform.

    In March 1910, the Des Moines Register printed a letter from an anonymous ex-inmate entitled Mitchellville From the Girls' Side. The writer takes strong exception to Miss Garrison's argument that learning music might lead girls "into the gay life". She concludes by saying she took piano and vocal lessons while at the school and is now married with a baby. "Music never led me astray." 

    Des Moines Register
    22 March 1910


    These were not ordinary children. They were troubled young girls. The victims of poverty and abuse, broken homes, poor neighborhoods, and isolated rural communities. Many had limited or no education. A number of girls undoubtedly came from immigrant families with few resources to help them in mid-west America. These girls knew what a "hard scrabble life" meant. The time they served inside a reform school was difficult and not without heartbreak.

    But music made it better.





    * * *



    Today the Girls Industrial School property in Mitchellville is the site of the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women. It is a minimum/medium security facility with a staff of 190. It can house 510 female inmates. Surrounded by heavy barbed wire fences, from Google Maps satellite view it doesn't resemble the 1909 birds-eye view in any way. As far as I can tell the old buildings including the chapel are long gone. 

    I doubt that this 2017 generation of Iowa female inmates
    has as lovely an orchestra as the one in 1908.

              Ontario’s privacy commissioner calls for transparency in assisted dying   

    There are more people in on the secret than you’d imagine.

    The scene is set in a hospital, somewhere in Ontario. A pharmacy technician carefully measures out the medication. An orderly whisks it down the hall. A translator may be sought, and a physician arrives at the patient’s room.

    Legally, any one of them can refuse to participate in the physician-assisted death that’s about to take place, recognized for a year now as a person’s legal right in Canada.

    But outside the medical facility, no one has to know what’s happening — and that’s sounding off alarms for Ontario’s most senior privacy watchdog.

    In his annual report last week, privacy commissioner Brian Beamish took aim at the Medical Assistance in Dying Statute Law Amendment Act, or Bill 84, which became law in Ontario last month.

    The act, in part, is a green light for secrecy. Any information that could identify hospitals, long-term care homes or hospices that offer medically assisted death is now exempt from freedom of information laws.

    “The government views protecting facilities as a logical and justifiable extension of protecting clinicians,” health ministry spokesperson David Jensen wrote in an email to the Star. There’s nothing in Bill 84 to explicitly prevent a facility from “proactively releasing” their policies,” he added.

    “The ministry is not considering any changes at this point.”

    To Beamish, that decision veers alarmingly off-path from transparency and accountability. Before the bill became law, he recommended amendments that kept the names of physicians anonymous but the names of facilities public.

    “Information should be public unless there’s a really good reason why it shouldn’t be,” Beamish told the Star. In this case, he said, there was no evidence presented by legislators to suggest any reason why hospitals and care facilities should be exempt from disclosing their practices.

    The same concern was presented by Hamilton Health Sciences ethicist Andrea Frolic at a committee meeting about the bill in March. Frolic praised the protection of physicians, but questioned why publicly funded facilities could draw a dark curtain over their practices.

    “Information-sharing with the public is essential to patients’ informed decision-making,” she told the room, recommending that facilities disclose whether they grant assisted-death requests.

    But when the bill passed, so, too, did the institutional protections.

    Dr. Gerald Ashe, a family physician in Brockville, is onside with Beamish’s plea. Over the past year, he’s openly helped terminal patients end their lives by achieving what he calls “a good death.”

    “I’ll be honest with you, I don’t agree that publicly funded institutions should have the right not to offer it. But this is so much beyond that,” he said. Though he understands that individual physicians may find comfort in anonymity, he says he’s faced zero criticism for his involvement.

    “I don’t think there’s any danger to physicians,” he said. “Individuals who are participating and not putting their name out there are just kind of finding their way.” To him, an institution doesn’t need the same level of protection.

    In Toronto, the University Health Network is trying to set a standard for transparency — whether or not the provincial government requires it — by publicly declaring its willingness to perform assisted deaths.

    Dr. Madeline Li, a physician with the network, had already begun writing the framework for the hospitals within the network — Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret, Toronto Rehab and the Michener Institute — before federal legislation passed to allow assisted deaths.

    “The time for debate is over. This is a patient’s right. And as an institution, we’ve decided to provide it,” Li told the Star. Even if a facility elects not to provide assisted death, she said, it’s important to make that clear for patients.

    “Other institutions aren’t so much not being transparent,” she said. “I think it’s more that people are just unprepared.”

    Unlike Ashe, health-care workers within the University Health Network have seen backlash. Dr. James Downar, in particular, faced criticism after speaking out about assisted death. “He was worried about emails within our firewall that might be tapped,” Li said.

    A palliative care nurse was approached and asked, “How could you do this?”

    Li herself has faced questions about how she could participate in the process. But, she said, forming an open and comprehensive policy makes answering such questions much easier.

    “I have no difficulty defending our position,” she said. “And that’s part of what plays into being transparent. There’s no secrets. There’s no shame.”

              Warum Frau Merkel zwingend abgewählt werden muss.   
    Merkel ohne Programm Keine Ideen, kein Aufbruch, nichts!
    Ihre Partei gähnt vor Langeweile, sie selbst glänzt derzeit durch Nichtstun - und trotzdem sind CDU und Angela Merkel wieder obenauf. Doch die Kanzlerin hat keine weitere Amtszeit verdient.
    Keine Ideen, kein Aufbruch, keine Vorstellung, wo das Land hinwill. Nichts. Im Gegenteil, Merkel strahlt aus: Wo wir sind, ist vorn. Bloß nicht bewegen. Welch ein Trugschluss.


    Die Systemmedien geben sich in der Regel alle Mühe, zu erklären, wie beliebt Frau Merkel wäre.

    Schaut vom allerdings anonymisierte Umfragen an, so ergibt sich ein vollständig konträres Bild.

    focus Umfrage  26.06.2017


    Da gab es zum Beispiel eine Umfrage bei T-Online, so ähnlich, „Wer macht das Rennen, Merkel oder Schulz.“
    Schon die Fragestellung ist die reine Manipulation. Etwa so, welches Bein hätten sie den lieber gebrochen, das Linke oder das Rechte.

    Schlicht, überhaupt keins, aber diese „Wahlmöglichkeit“ besteht nicht. Und so soll der Konsument dazu bewegt werden, das zu wählen, was man kennt.
    Ergo Merkel – denn die kennen wir ja schon zur genüge.

    So wählen dann die Manipulierten „Merkel“ ohne das sie bemerken, dass genau das, das gewollte Resultat ist, woraus die Lügenpresse dann Umfragewerte für Merkel von 53 % produziert.

    Im oben verlinkten Spiegelartikel heißt es weiter:
    Welches große politische Projekt bringt man mit Merkel in Verbindung? Welchem Gesetzesvorhaben hat sie ihren Stempel aufgedrückt? Was will sie, außer weiter an der Macht bleiben?

    Außer das Merkel Millionen Invasoren unkontrolliert nach Deutschland einlud, hat sie nichts bewegendes unternommen. Diese Fremden aus moslemischen Ländern, unter denen sich ein verschwindend geringer Anteil von Kriegsflüchtlingen befindet, fluten noch immer Europa und nach den Wahlen, passen Sie gut auf, wird der Familiennachzug in ungeahntem Ausmaß beginnen und alle europäischen Länder, die keine Flüchtlinge aufnehmen wollen, werden unter Federführung von Merkel von dem Verein EU bestraft. Das wird uns Deutsche alle Sympathien bei unseren Nachbarn kosten und die Völker aneinanderhetzen.

    Im oben verlinkten Spiegelartikel heißt es weiter:
    Bis zum Ende der Legislaturperiode 2021 sagt die Steuerschätzung ein zusätzliches Steueraufkommen von mehr als 110 Milliarden Euro in vier Jahren voraus. Hat man von Merkel irgendwann mal gehört, was sie mit diesem Geld machen will? Investitionen in die Infrastruktur? Bildung? Integration? Steuerstrukturreformen?


    Hat sie einen Plan? Hat sie nicht.
    Und diese Frau will von uns gewählt werden?
    Frau Merkel ist überfällig zur Abwahl. Wie seinerzeit Kohl, der letztendlich von Merkel gestürzt wurde.
    In der sogenannten christlichen Union ist aber niemand, der es wagen würde Merkel zu stürzen, denn die infrage kommenden Frauen oder Männer wurden von Merkel und ihren Seilschaften, von denen nicht wenige in der kommunistischen DDR , genau wie Merkel,  ihre sozialistischen Weihen erhielten.
    Also bleibt nur die Abwahl und die ist absolut nötig.

    Anonymous hacker on laptop

    Apparently, that baby monitor and microwave oven are not the only contraptions that are spying on you. Motherboard recently issued a warning to users of the novelty sex toy devices. The post reads, “Hackers Can Easily Hijack This Dildo Camera and Livestream the Inside of Your Vagina (Or Butt).” The story about the vibrator cam broke in April, but began trending again on Saturday.

    Hindsight is 20-20, but this new report is redefining the Internet of Things (or IOT). Here, we’re referring to a vibrator connected to the internet that allows the user to live stream their — ahem — “pleasure” to a targeted audience. The trouble is, some of the dildo cameras reportedly have weaknesses that allow hackers to join in on the pleasure-seeking party — uninvited.

    It is a shame that so many people are suspicious of the police today. The truth is, people have a right to be suspicious. What we need now is a complete overhaul of the Police Service and a return of the authority for staffing matters involving discipline, to the Police High Command. As long as such matters remain in the purview of the Public Service Commission, the Police Service will continue to function like any ordinary department of Government. And I insist that the Police Service IS NOT an ordinary department of Government, and should not be treated as such. The Police Service is a special agency with responsibility for leading the way in legal matters. So let us return authority for discipline to the Police High Command, to begin with.
              Comment on National Security Minister says unprecedented crime wave hitting St Lucia by Anonymous   
    Cyril, in the first place, I hope this is your real name. In the second place, those of us who "hide" our identities are doing so, not because we are afraid of anybody, but because we want to make a point for public consumption. What do I mean by this ? Well, if I am a well known person in society and I make a comment that some people don't like or don't agree with, these people will retaliate on a personal level and tell you everything they either know for a fact about me, or that they have heard about me, true or false. In the meantime, the point of my comment will be missed and the thrust of my argument will be overlooked, while my detractors have a field day giving me "mepris". So it is sometimes necessary to "hide" one's name in order to make a point that may well generate "roro" but not at a personal level. I don't know what standing you have in this society, but trust me, it is sometimes necessary to stay in the background. The personal "Argo" is not worth it.

              Princeton, NJ -- Community Events This Week   

    If you're in the Princeton, NJ area - or can somehow manage to get here - this week, boy do we have some events for you!  Infragistics has teamed up with our local .NET User Group (NJDOTNET) and our local Microsoft Developer Evangelists out of New York City to bring you the following awesome events:

    1. Thursday, December 11th, 1PM - 5PM:  MSDN Roadshow
      Presenters:  Peter Laudati and Bill Zack
      Session 1: Cloud Computing

      Hear about key problems that cloud computing is solving and how these services fit into the Microsoft cloud computing initiatives. Learn about the pillars of the platform, its service lifecycle, and see how they fit with both Microsoft and non-Microsoft technologies.

      Session 2: Silverlight 2 Application Development

      Now it’s time for you to get ready to build next generation rich Internet applications with Silverlight!  In this session, we’ll quickly review what the Silverlight 2 platform is, and then move into the bits and bytes.

    2. Thursday, December 11th, 6:15-8:30 PM:  NJDOTNET User Group monthly meeting
      Topic:  The ASP.NET MVC Framework
      Presenter:  Jess Chadwick

      The Model-View-Controller (MVC) architectural pattern is one that many developers are familiar with which separates an application into three main components: the model, the view, and the controller. The ASP.NET MVC framework provides an alternative to the ASP.NET Web Forms pattern for creating MVC-based Web applications. It is a lightweight, highly testable framework that allows you to easily incorporate this pattern into your applications, helping to separate the different aspects  (input logic, business logic, and UI logic) into loosely-coupled and pluggable elements.

    3. Saturday, December 13th,  9:30 AM - 5:00 PM:  NJDOTNET ASP.NET MVC Firestarter
      Join us at the Infragistics HQ to participate in an all-day, deep-dive into one of Microsoft's latest (and greatest!) technologies: ASP.NET MVC.

      At the ASP.NET MVC Firestarter, we’ll give you a quick tour of the framework, then peel back the layers and dive deeper into how it works.   As part of that, we’ll spend time discussing the design and development practices that lead to the creation of the MVC framework.  By the time you leave, you’ll have enough knowledge to get fired up and start building web applications with it.

      Detailed Agenda:

      • ASP.NET MVC Introduction
        • The MVC Design Pattern
        • Hello World Demo – Walking through routing, controllers, and views
      • Framework Fundamentals & Practices
        • C# 3.0 Primer
        • Anonymous Classes
        • Lambda Expressions
        • Extention Methods
        • LINQ
        • Dependency Injection
      • Routing & Controllers
        • Routing 101
        • Controllers – Actions & ActionResults
        • Controllers & TDD
      • Rendering Markup
        • Views (using WebForm tools)
        • Extensibility with View Engines
      • Working with Data
        • Creating & Submitting Forms
        • UI Helpers
      • Building Rich Web Interfaces
        • Applying AJAX Helper extensions
        • Walkthrough of ASP.NET AJAX + MVC Extensions

              Sina`s Challenge   
    Iranian-American author and ex-Muslim Dr. Ali Sina has posed a challenge
    to anyone willing to take it up:

    http://www.faithfreedom.org/challenge.htm

    Sina's Challenge 


    I receive many emails from angry Muslims, who sometimes beg me, and sometimes order me to remove this site. I consider both, pleading and bullying, signs of psychopathology. Argumentum ad baculum and argumentum ad misericordiam are both logical fallacies.
    If you do not like this site and want me to remove it, instead of acting as a bully or as a victim,  disprove my charges against Muhammad logically.  Not only will I remove the site, I will publicly announce that Islam is a true religion. I will also pay 
    $50,000 U.S. dollars 
    to anyone who can disprove any of the dozen of the accusations that I have made against Muhammad. I accuse Muhammad of being:
    a narcissist a misogynista rapist
    a pedophilea lechera  torturer
    a mass murderera cult leaderan assassin
    a terrorista mad mana looter
    I have debated with many Muslims. Their defense of Islam can be summarized in two categories: 
    a-      Denial of the authenticity of Islamic sources that report the stories of crimes of Muhammad (example: debate with Edip Yukssel, a leader of the Submitters) 
    b-     Moral relativism and situational ethics, e.g., “In those days,  pedophilia, assassination, rape, raid, pillage, massacre and lying, were common practices, so Muhammad is innocent because he did what everyone else was doing.”  Muslims even go as far as to question the legitimacy of the Golden Rule to claim I do not have any basis to condemn Muhammad. In other words, who can say what is good and what is evil? That is up to the messenger of God to decide. (Example: debate with Yamin Zakaria)

    These are the main two arguments that Muslims present in defense of Islam. Any rational person can see they are logical fallacies.    

    These charges are irrefutable. You simply can't disprove them because they are reported in Islamic sources and as such they are as good as confession. You can't acquit a criminal after he has confessed, unless you plead insanity, which is my point. 

    Muslims often ask: "Who will judge whether or not an attempt to disprove your accusations against Muhammad and Islam, was successful?"   The readers will be the jury. It is not difficult to see which side is right once both arguments are presented without one side fearing the other. I will publish the debates in this site.  My opponents are also encouraged to publish them in any Islamic site.  Please note that I will not accept face to face debates.  The debates must be in writing.  

    Edit 2007/07/29

    The above challenge was issued in 2001 and it hasn't been met yet. See the debates I had with Muslims.  Also see the pathetic attempt of some Muslims trying to refute me here , herehere and here.  Is that all the Muslim world can offer?  Where are the scholars of Islam?  Why such an important task is left to a bunch of amateurs who actually do more damage to Islam?  Isn't it time that the real scholars come forth and refute my charges? 

    The truth is that several of the people that debated me were real scholars, such as the eminent Pakistani scholar Mr. Javed Ahmed Ghamidi and his disciple Dr. Khalid Zaheer. This debate is a must read and is available for download.  Dr. Zaheer is a learned man, a moderate Muslim  and a good human being. I have utmost respect for him. 

    As of this date (2007), I will no longer debate with people who want to debate anonymously. I only debate with reputable scholars. I made this decision because often, Muslims moved by their faith and zealotry, but with little knowledge of Islam, challenge me to debate. They rehash the same tried and refuted arguments that bore everyone and disappear. Then, other Muslims, either accuse me of fabricating those debates or pooh-pooh my opponents for not being scholars. 

    As of this day, I am also doubling the reward. If you are not a reputable scholar, you can still win the prize. All you have to do is persuade a scholar to debate with me. If he (she) disproves my charges or can prove that Muhammad was a prophet of God, both you and he (she) will be rewarded $50,000 dollars each. This is to encourage you to write to your admired scholar and convince them that Islam is in danger and that it is their duty to defend it. Once you write to invite someone, please CC a copy to us for announcing the invitation.  Our email is faithfreedom2 (at) gmail.com

    Yes, Islam is in grave danger. Never, since its inception, Islam has faced a threat as serious as this. Today, millions of ex-Muslims are questioning the claimed truth of Islam, can make their criticisms heard worldwide, and unlike before, not fear for their lives.  As long as these questions are not answered, this trend is only bound to continue, until the trickle becomes a torrent and the fall of Islam becomes obvious.  In the past, the critics of Islam briefly shined like lamps in darkness, only to be put out by winds of persecution. What is happening today can be likened to the break of the dawn.  Darkness has no chance in front of this much light.  Muslims are waking up and leaving Islam like never before. A spiritual and intellectual revolution is underway.  This is the century of enlightenment of the benighted Muslims. The giant is finally awakening.  The days of Islam are numbered.  This demon of hate and ignorance will be slain by the hands of its own primary victims.  The unity of mankind and the world peace are around the corner.

    Please advertise this challenge. Every Muslim must see it.  This is like throwing water on their fire. Nothing will dampen their zeal more than the realization that among a billion Muslims there is not a single scholar who can prove the wild claims of Muhammad, nor acquit him of these grave charges. This unmet challenge has a sobering effect on them.  They can make any excuse, such as, I am not worth their response, that there have been greater men than me who opposed Islam, or that I have been refuted already, but they will not be able to fool themselves.  The more this challenge is circulated, the more Muslims will be forced to remain silent and doubt Islam.  Do not undermine the psychological effect of this impossible challenge.   

    Sincerely 
    Ali Sina

              Fine structure of the age-chromospheric activity relation in solar-type stars. I. The Ca II infrared triplet: Absolute flux calibration   
    First Author: Lorenzo-Oliveira, D.
    Instruments: FEROS
    ProgramIDs: .
    BibCode: 2016A&A...595A..11L

    Context. Strong spectral lines are useful indicators of stellar chromospheric activity. They are physically linked to the convection efficiency, differential rotation, and angular momentum evolution and are a potential indicator of age. However, for ages 〉 2 Gyr, the age-activity relationship remains poorly constrained thus hampering its full application.
    Aims: The Ca II infrared triplet (IRT lines, λλ 8498, 8542, and 8662) has been poorly studied compared to classical chromospheric indicators. We report in this paper absolute chromospheric fluxes in the three Ca II IRT lines, based on a new calibration tied to up-to-date model atmospheres.
    Methods: We obtain the Ca II IRT absolute fluxes for 113 FGK stars from high signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) and high-resolution spectra covering an extensive domain of chromospheric activity levels. We perform an absolute continuum flux calibration for the Ca II IRT lines anchored in atmospheric models calculated as an explicit function of effective temperatures (Teff), metallicity ([Fe/H]), and gravities (log g) avoiding the degeneracy usually present in photometric continuum calibrations based solely on color indices.
    Results: The internal uncertainties achieved for continuum absolute flux calculations are ≈2% of the solar chromospheric flux, one order of magnitude lower than for photometric calibrations. Using Monte Carlo simulations, we gauge the impact of observational errors on the final chromospheric fluxes due to the absolute continuum flux calibration and find that Teffuncertainties are properly mitigated by the photospheric correction leaving [Fe/H] as the dominating factor in the chromospheric flux uncertainty.
    Conclusions: Across the FGK spectral types, the Ca II IRT lines are sensitive to chromospheric activity. The reduced internal uncertainties reported here enable us to build a new chromospheric absolute flux scale and explore the age-activity relation from the active regime down to very low activity levels and a wide range of Teff, mass, [Fe/H], and age.Based on spectroscopic observations collected at the Observatório do Pico dos Dias (OPD), operated by the Laboratório Nacional de Astrofísica, CNPq, Brazil, and the European Southern Observatory (ESO), within the ON/ESO and ON/IAG agreements, under FAPESP project No. 1998/10138-8.Full Table 1 is only available at the CDS via anonymous ftp to http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr (http://130.79.128.5) or via http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr/viz-bin/qcat?J/A+A/595/A11

    Hey
              Comment on F1 street track being considered in Denmark | F1 Fanatic Round-up by paulguitar   
    That is a very interesting piece by Will Buxton. I agree with all he says there. Take a quick look at Youtube comments, for example, to be truly shocked. I had a look at a video of the Lewis/Seb incident a few days ago, and scrolled down hoping for some sensible discussion. To say that is not what I saw would be a serious understatement. The first comment, which was at the top due to having been up-voted by the most people, was a short, sickeningly racist statement about Lewis Hamilton. The sort of thing I could not possibly quote here. I was genuinely horrified and really saddened. So what’s going on? I often wonder if it is the very anonymity of the internet that creates this sort of thing, but it must be there in these people for real, as they are going about their daily lives, and now given a chance to rear its ugly head from the safety of typing on their computer anonymously. There seems to be a rejection of simple facts these days, and we really do seem to now be living in a post truth, ’Trump world’. We can all be guilty of getting carried away, on here I think the level of respect is generally very good. Having said that, I am going to make a concerted effort to be ever more respectful online, and remember we are all fans of the same thing, and are probably nearly all decent people, even if we often disagree!
