          Klacht over bezorging keukeneiland Ikea   

IKEA klacht (1) Op 24 mei j.l. bestelden wij bij IKEA Duivendrecht een mooi keukeneiland. Het was niet goedkoop maar het leek een prachtig meubelstuk voor ons nieuwe appartement. We gaven naam en adresgegevens op bij de medewerker die ons had geholpen en alles vervolgens invoerde in de computer, waarbij we vermeldden dat het om een nieuwbouw adres ging. Omdat het keukeneiland op maat moest worden gemaakt ging daar enige tijd overheen. We kregen de datum door dat het pakket bezorgd zou worden op vrijdag 16 juni tussen 12.00 en 16.00 uur. Die woensdag ervoor, 14 juni om 7.05, ontvingen we een sms met de volgende tekst: ‘de order met nummer 853940421 wordt op 16-06-2017 bezorgd tussen 12.00 en 16.00. We raden je aan om in het geboekte tijdsblok thuis te zijn.’ Voor deze dag namen we een middag vrij en huurden we een klusjesman om het eiland te monteren en in elkaar te zetten. We wonen nog niet in het appartement maar zorgden ervoor dat we er ruim op tijd waren. Om 16.30 uur belden we naar de IKEA klantenservice om te vragen waar ze bleven. Ikea heeft de order er op nagekeken en verzekerde ons dat de bezorgers al in Amsterdam waren. Om 17.30 uur evenwel, werd ik gebeld door de bezorger dat het geboekte adres Bercylaan 277 met een ‘s’ stond geschreven i.p.v. met een ‘c’. (terwijl wij het adres duidelijk gespeld hadden) En omdat ze volgens de navigatie nog 20 minuten nodig zouden hebben ons adres te bereiken – het was inmiddels 17.30 uur- wilden ze het niet meer bezorgen! Wij benadrukten daarop dat we al meer dat 5,5 uur op hen wachtten, een middag vrij hadden genomen, een klusjesman hadden ingehuurd etc. We benadrukten dat we het echt die dag nog wilden ontvangen. Vervolgens namen de bezorgers contact op met Ikea die ons een kwartier later terugbelden met de mededeling dat ze het nog geprobeerd hadden maar dat het niet gelukt was de bezorgers het meubelstuk te laten bezorgen. Onder protest moest er een nieuwe afspraak worden gemaakt voor zaterdag 24 juni. Een andere datum bleek niet mogelijk. Omdat wij 24 juni de verhuizing hebben gepland is dit voor ons onmogelijk. Bovendien hadden we gepland dat het keukeneiland er al ruim zou staan voordat er verhuisd zou worden. Resultaat van deze dag: - dagdeel vrijgenomen voor niks - klusjesman ingehuurd om een keukeneiland te monteren dat niet bezorgd werd - planning omver gegooid want we wilden het hebben staan voor de verhuizing - frustratie en verbijstering door de behandeling - niet een ‘snelle’ datum in het begin van de week ‘aangeboden’ krijgen (omdat er al zoveel is misgegaan) maar onder protest een datum opgedrongen krijgen die bestemd is voor de verhuizing Als klant zijn wij bijzonder coulant geweest in onze opstelling. Ook al zou het afgelopen zaterdag veel te laat (en ver na het gestelde tijdsblok) alsnog bezorgd zijn, dan was deze brief niet geschreven. Maar de geschetste behandeling, incl. het opgedrongen krijgen van een datum die ons niet uitkomt, stuurt niet alleen onze planning in de war maar wekt ook grote frustratie. IKEA klacht vervolg (2) Op 17 juni ontving u onze klacht per mail en op 18 juni bezochten we de klantenservicedesk van Ikea Duivendrecht. Degene die ons hielp had zelf onze binnengekomen klacht gelezen en verzekerde ons dat men bezig was met een antwoord waarin een financiële compensatie zou worden voorgesteld. Het alsnog snel bezorgen van onze aankoop behoorde niet tot de mogelijkheden en zou op zijn vroegst kunnen op 24 juni, de dag van onze verhuizing. De datum werd dus vastgesteld op maandag 26 juni, 10 dagen na de oorspronkelijk afgesproken datum. Inmiddels is het 26 juni en nog steeds hebben wij geen bericht ontvangen. Bij een dergelijke fout verwacht je op zijn minst een snelle reactie met excuus en een voorstel tot compensatie. Graag horen wij per omgaande van u hoe de kosten en het ongemak gecompenseerd worden. De situatie nogmaals samengevat: - dagdeel vrijgenomen voor niks - klusjesman ingehuurd om een keukeneiland te monteren dat niet bezorgd werd.Hij is vertrokken om 17.30 uur, op het moment dat de bezorging liet weten 20 min. van ons adres af te zitten maar definitief niet meer te willen bezorgen. - planning omver gegooid want we wilden het hebben staan voor de verhuizing - frustratie en verbijstering door de behandeling tot nu toe - niet een ‘snelle’ datum in het begin van de week ‘aangeboden’ krijgen (omdat er al zoveel was misgegaan) maar onder protest een datum opgedrongen krijgen die bestemd was voor de verhuizing. Inmiddels is de datum gesteld op vandaag, maandag 26 juni, 2 dg na onze verhuizing. - Na 10 dg nog geen reactie van Ikea In afwachting op uw antwoord, Betreft: Ikea klacht vervolg (3) Op maandag 26 juni wordt 10 dagen na de afgesproken datum het keukeneiland geleverd. Het was op maat gemaakt, maar al gauw blijkt dat de afdekbladen te breed zijn. Behalve een ontvangstbevestiging van de voorgaande klacht hebben we tot nu toe, 17 dagen na onze klacht, niets van Ikea vernomen. Geen excuses en geen verrekening bij de bezorging zoals de mevrouw bij de servicebalie suggereerde dat waarschijnlijk zou gebeuren.

          Shorty Rogers - Chances Are ... It Swings   
© -Steven Cerra, copyright protected; all rights reserved.


At the time of its issuance in 1959, I took the personnel on Shorty Rogers’ RCA album Chances Are It Swings [RD-27149 MONO; LSP-1978 Stereo] for granted.


I mean doesn’t every studio big band recording have the likes of Shorty, Don Fagerquist, Conte Candoli, Pete Candoli, Al Porcino, Ollie Mitchell and Ray Triscari in its trumpet section?


Can you imagine, seven, 7, SEVEN! first call trumpet players - with four of them bona fide lead trumpet players - made that album and that doesn’t include Conrad Gozzo, lead trumpet player par excellence.


The rest of the band reads like a Who’s Who of Los Angeles based studio-Jazz musicians including: Bob Enevoldsen on valve trombone, Harry Betts and Dick Nash, trombone, Kenny Shroyer, bass trombone; Paul Horn and Bud Shank, clarinet flute, alto sax, Richie Kamuca and Bill Holman, tenor sax and Chuck Gentry on baritone sax; Howard Roberts and Barney Kessel, guitar; Gene Estes on vibes [replaced by Red Norvo on 4 tracks]; Pete Jolly, piano; Joe Mondragon, bass [replaced by Monty Budwig on 4 tracks]; Mel Lewis, drums.


Wow - quel band!


And then there’s Shorty’s absolutely magnificent big band charts with their pleasing to the ear and very original voicings [in some places, the melodies are carried on flugelhorn, clarinet and vibes in unison].


The arrangements are full of surprises - bombastic trumpet “chords” used as short phrases to punctuate and pop the music, perfectly placed drums fill, kicks and licks and lopping sax soli - all in the cause of emphasizing continuous swing in the music.


Dating back to his work with Woody Herman in the mid-1940’s through to his association with Stan Kenton in the early 1950s, Shorty had accumulated a wealth of experience writing for a big bands.


But after leaving Kenton and joining Howard Rumsey’s All-Stars at the Lighthouse Cafe in Hermosa Beach, CA and concurringly forming his own quintet - The Giants - Shorty primarily concentrated on writing for small groups. Chances Are It Swings marked Shorty’s return to big band arranging, this time fronting his own band.


Obviously, with the lineup listed above, everyone in town wanted to be in it.


And why not? Shorty’s music was fun to play.


The music on Chances Are It Swings is drawn from a single composer - Robert Allen. Allen wrote a number of popular songs following  performed by Johnny Mathis, Tony Bennett, Perry Como, Billie Holiday, Jimmy Durante, Kate Smith, the Shirelles, the Four Lads and many other singers in the 1950's and 60's, and some became pop standards.


John Tynan describes more of the Rogers and Allen connection in the following liner notes to Chances Are It Swings after which you’ll find a video featuring Shorty’s band performing Chances Are.


“That fickle lass, Jazz, is a volatile wench of multicolored moods. She can be broadly bluesy or subtly cool, rubbing elbows with disparate sources from the guitar-strumming Mississippi cotton picker to the urbane Cole Porter. Though her demands may be finicky at times "La Jazz" imposes one basic prerequisite on those who would court her: the music on which she swings must be high caliber. This alliance of arranger-trumpeter Shorty Rogers and songwriter Robert Allen proves a happy combination of brilliant arranging and hit songs. Allen's songs pear melodic witness that real talent, no matter how long its incubation period, must express itself.


"I've been writing songs for only about six years" Allen explains, "Before 1952, I played jazz piano in New York night clubs. Nothing very far out. Certainly nothing to cheer about." After a half dozen years on the club circuit, the constant urge to write became a nagging ache. "I found myself thinking about writing all the time," says Allen. "It was bugging me. And I found myself losing the incentive to play. All I could think about was writing songs... it became an obsession." Allen's obsession turned out to be magnificent. In the past three years alone some 80 per cent of his tunes have been hits. There are no less than seven "smashes" in this album.


Of Rogers' work in adapting his songs to big jazz band interpretation, Allen waxes lyrical. "This album is today," he exults. "It's revolutionary in concept when you consider the popular music picture today. Unlike so much jazz being currently produced, this set is not living in yesterdays music... I'm firmly convinced that Shorty has established twelve standards with his treatment of my tunes." Positive that"... it's impossible lor things ready to swing unless you understand the material," the composer declares that Rogers has succeeded in revealing facets of his songs never before revealed. "You know," Allen muses, "when songs become popular hits, most people don't think of their chordal structure in jazz terms. They're played on the neighborhood jukeboxes, people whistle and hum them—but there's where their musical interest ends." Yet, in Allen's opinion, the heyday of big bands was marked by successful, valid jazz treatments of then current popular songs. He cites Jimmie Lunceford's "Ain't She Sweet," Count Basie’s "Cheek to Cheek" end Duke Ellington's "Caravan" and points out that some of the best jazz of the Thirties was blown on a pop song by Fats Waller — "Honeysuckle Rose."


The composer contends a similar approach should apply to good contemporary popular songs. "When the public hears an album of familiar pop songs with good jazz treatment," Allen conjectures, "maybe they'll like it well enough to buy it. And m passing they just might learn a thing or two about good music This worked in the old days; no reason why it shouldn't again." As Shorty Rogers' imaginative arrangements demonstrate, jazz can be written into and improvised on most music of real merit. As vehicles for the driving solos of both Shorty and some of the best jazz horn men in Hollywood (necessarily uncredited), the album turns out to be mighty creditable jazz indeed.


Shorty's tightly controlled modern trumpet style, born of Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, had its genesis in the early days of the bebop era even before Shorty became one of the star soloists in Woody Herman's First Herd. Today he is no more a "typical bebopper" than is writer Allen. Domesticated in Southern California since 1947, the 34-year-old trumpeter is one of the busiest arrangers on the Coast. From the cluttered workroom behind his Van Nuys home, Shorty turns out arrangements for a wide variety of RCA Victor recordings— from commercial pop vocal singles to his own big band jazz albums such as CHANCES ARE IT SWINGS.

Needless to say, chances that this album swings are better than even. In fact, grins Shorty, the element of chance that it would not never once entered his mind.

          Pops and O.P. - "You Go To My Head"   
© -Steven Cerra, copyright protected; all rights reserved.


“Louis Armstrong  was the father of “vernacular music,” which was made possible by the microphone.  Anyone with any kind of contemporary rhythmic concept —be they singer, instrumentalist, or composer-arranger— owes a debt to Armstrong.  By the way, my favorite Armstrong performance, both playing and singing, is his 1957 recording of “You Go To My Head” with Oscar Peterson. If you want to understand where Miles Davis came from, and why Armstrong is still relevant today, listen to this.  I often play it for students, and many of them find it a life-changing record.”
- Bill Kirchner, Jazz musician


Returning to the subject of favorite recordings, Louis Armstrong Meets Oscar Peterson [825 713-2] has been included in that group since Verve released it in 1957.


Louis’ meeting with Oscar Peterson's trio, is as Richard Cook and Brian Morton in The Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD, 6th Ed “perhaps a mixed success, but nevertheless an intriguing disc.”


Peterson can't altogether avoid his besetting pushiness, yet he's just as often sotto voce [a quiet or understated voice; literally “under the voice”] in accompaniment, and on the slower tunes especially - Sweet Lorraine and Lets Fall In Love and You Go To My Head.”


But the important point here is that “the chemistry works, and Louis is certainly never intimidated.”


I also agree with them when they assert: “It’s good to hear [Pops] on material more obviously 'modern' than he normally tackled and, although he sometimes gets the feel of a song wrong, he finds a surprising spin tor several of the lyrics.”


But I think, the most important point to be made in its favor is that, thanks again to the intercession of impresario Norman Granz in, that the album exists!


How many times have you heard friends’ remarks about Wish List recordings - “Gee, I wonder what it would have sounded like to have so-and-so performing with such-and-such - while knowing that the reality is that’s never going to happen because those artists are no longer with us?


I’ve often longed for a Louis Armstrong-Art Tatum recording, but that never happened, either. Thankfully, this one did, especially since Oscar Peterson gets a close to Tatum as anyone ever did.


Put another way, although a modern stylist and very much his own man, Peterson’s homage to Tatum is very much apparent in his playing and is what I think that Cook-Morton are referring to when they mention Oscar’s “besettling pushiness.” But that’s not the way I hear it. What’s on display here is a great accompanist offering his talents to a great soloist, one very much deserving of his respect.


More about the special nature of Louis Armstrong Meets Oscar Peterson [Verve 825 713-2] is revealed in Leonard Feather's liner notes from the original LP release of this material:


"When I was a kid," Louis Armstrong says, "I used to go singing around in churches or choirs or on street corners. You'd get four hustlers on a corner who could make a sharp quartet. 1 was about seven years old when I started singing. We'd pass the hat and sometimes we'd make as much as $1.50 a night. That was like $150 a night now"


This recollection places Satchmo's vocal career ahead of his horn-blowing life by several years and means that he has been singing, for pleasure and money, over half a century. Since today his popularity with the general public can be credited even more to his singing than to the trumpet that originally made him a globally known figure, and since the present album is basically a set of vocal performances, it is interesting to note that this thorny, rock-bottomed approach to the use of the human voice predated (and in a sense predicted) similar melodic and rhythmic nuances on the cornet and trumpet.


As George Avakian pointed out in The Jazz Makers (Grove Press), Louis "developed a whole school of jazz singing, based on a literal interpretation of the folk and blues singers' approach to the voice as an instrument. Louis showed that the emotional meaning of o lyric can be expressed through vocal inflections and improvisations of a purely instrumental quality just as effectively — more so, in fact — as through words. This line of development paralleled the growth of his instrumental influence. It still embraces every jazz and popular singer today"


All this can be applied at full strength to the dozen interpretations on these sides of material that generally falls in the popular song category. What Louis may lack in clear understanding of the lyrics' meaning in occasional lines is more than compensated by his overall feeling for the mood of both lyrics and melody. And there are, of course, additional virtues in the presence of his companions. The Oscar Peterson Trio Plus One (Louis Bellson again rounds out the rhythm section as he did on previous albums in which Oscar's trio played for Louis, Ella Fitzgerald and others) is perhaps the most perfectly integrated rhythmic unit of its kind in contemporary jazz.

Peterson's background is about as different from Louis' as Admiral Byrd's from Dr. Livingstone's; yet it is this very contrast, and the eclectic quality in his work, that makes him the ideal accompanist, for any singer or instrumentalist of any jazz school. What Louis learned on the streets and in the Waifs' Home in New Orleans has its best possible complement in what Oscar learned during rigorous classical studies north of the border. Neither had to bend a millimeter in musical concession to the other; the blend of spontaneous musicianship and academic knowledge was natural and immediate.


All the songs in this are from 15 to 30 years old; all have been used extensively by jazzmen, though in several instances Louis had never before recorded them. ...


You Go To My Head is, unless memory fails, Louis' first recorded performance of a number he could and should have introduced as soon as it was published, over 20 years ago. Perhaps in an effort to compensate for keeping us waiting so long, he plays an entire chorus and sings another. Not since Billie Holiday has there been a comparable sympathetic treatment….


Hearing Louis in the un-frilled, ungimmicked setting of the Oscar Peterson rhythm section will be a treat for those who have often seen him in person and wished for fewer encumbrances. Basically Louis needs nobody but Louis — he could stand all alone in the middle of the Sahara, singing selected excerpts from the Tunis telephone directory, and we suspect he could make it for a week without food and water. But if there must be someone else, let it be the man whose team made this
session such a happy occasion for all concerned. The meeting of Armstrong and Peterson marked one of the most catalytic moments since the day when Peterson met Norman Granz.”


Of You Go To My Head, Ted Gioia has written in The Jazz Standards: A Guide to the Repertoire [Oxford]


You Go to My Head
Composed by J. Fred Coots, with lyrics by Haven Gillespie


“In 1934, this same songwriting duo collaborated on "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," which endeared itself to Mom and Dad by getting countless youngsters to move from the naughty to nice cohort group. Four years later, some of those nice kids had grown up, but I'm confident few parents encouraged their headstrong teens to follow the lead of the new Gillespie-Coots hit "You Go to My Head." This song was a paean to romantic infatuation, packed with similes relating love to booze; in the course of a few bars — musical ones, that is, not those called "Dew Drop Inn" — we get references to champagne, burgundy, and a kicker of julep. Indeed, this song comes closer than any tune I know to capturing in musical form the feeling of losing control.


If the words were a bit too sophisticated for the kids, so was the music. "You Go to My Head" is an intricately constructed affair with plenty of harmonic movement. The song starts in a major key, but from the second bar onward, Mr. Coots seems intent on creating a feverish dream quality tending more to the minor mode. The release builds on the drama, and the final restatement holds some surprises as well. The piece would be noteworthy even if it lacked such an exquisite coda, but those last eight bars convey a sense of resigned closure to the song that fittingly matches the resolution of the lyrics.


Four artists had hit records with this song during the summer 051938. Larry Clinton's version was the biggest success, reaching as high as #3, but Teddy Wilson, Billie Holiday, and Glen Gray's Casa Loma Orchestra each enjoyed placement in the top 20 with their releases. The song fell out of circulation during the early 19403, but was widely covered during the second half of the decade, with artists from a range of stylistic camps — including Dizzy Gillespie, Gene Krupa, Lena Home, Coleman Hawkins, Dave Brubeck, Artie Shaw, and Lennie Tristano — bringing their individual talents to bear on it.


Vocalists tend to take this song at a "deep ballad" tempo, sometimes so extremely slow that they test the competence of the rhythm section to maintain a sense of swing while moving along at less than 40 beats per minute. Check out the recordings by Betty Carter and Shirley Horn for examples of how this can work when the instrumentalists on hand match the skill of the singer. In contrast, Bill Evans — whom one might expect to linger over the chart — delivers a simmering hard bop treatment on his 1962 Interplay album, helped along by Jim Hall and Freddie Hubbard.


Dave Brubeck and Paul Desmond take a different approach in their 1952 duet performance from Storyville, mixing romanticism and cerebral deconstruction in equal doses. Desmond had such fondness for this recording that when he and Brubeck reunited for a duet project in 1975, he wanted to showcase "You Go to My Head" again, and the song served as the emotional centerpiece of the resulting album. Both versions are worth hearing, but the earlier track is especially revealing of the simpatico relationship between these two artists, and is my favorite performance from their work for the Fantasy label.”

          The Clarke Boland Big Band is "All Smiles"   
© -Steven Cerra, copyright protected; all rights reserved.


Georges Paczynski, the author of the immensely important, Une Histoire de la Batterie de Jazz, which won the “Prix Charles Delauney 2000,” offered this succinct, background information about the Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland Big Band:

“The C.B.B.B. - The Clarke Boland Big Band - was formed in 1962 through the efforts of Francy Boland and Kenny Clarke. The pianist and the drummer wanted lo form a European orchestra whose sound would be instantly recognizable.

After recording in Cologne on May 18 and 19, 1961. with a smaller group - Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland (The Golden Eight) - the two leaders decided to put together a bigger band, and on December 13. 1961, the recording of Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland ("Jazz is Universal") took place. Among the thirteen musicians were the future mainstays of the band: the American trumpeter Benny Bailey, the English alto sax player Derek Humble, and the trombone player from Sweden, Aake Persson. After the success of this disc, the decision was made to increase the band even further; on January 25. 26 and 27. 1963 the Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland Big Band recorded in Cologne with 21 musicians. Throughout its career, the band never included less than 12 nationalities.

The personalities of the two leaders. Kenny and Francy. were directly opposite of those of the legendary big band leaders, iron-fisted megalomaniacs like Buddy Rich or Benny Goodman. Not only did Francy write the arrangements for a given instrument, but in thinking of a particular musician in the band, and composed according to the sound, phrasing and style of the individual. Team spirit reigned in the C.B.B.B. Each musician was aware of his importance in creating a good ensemble sound.

The name of Kenny Clarke is definitively associated with the birth of bop drumming. Following in the footsteps of Jo Jones and Sidney Catlett. it is to him that we owe the fact that still today the rhythm is played on the ride cymbal, with snare drum/bass drum punctuations. Jazz lovers see Kenny primarily as a small group drummer, forgetting that he was also a great big band drummer [check out Kenny’s playing in Dizzy Gillespie’s first big band in the 1940’s].

Drummer/leaders have existed from the earliest times in jazz. After "Papa Jack" Laine. there were Ben Pollack. Chick Webb, Gene Krupa. Buddy Rich, Don Lamond. Mel Lewis... the list (and the beat) goes on. The C.B.B.B. is situated in the grand traditions of the big bands. The basic musical concept was of a rhythmic foundation on which the entire orchestra reposed. Here the role of the drummer is clearly vital; along with the bassist, he plays throughout the piece, and is both accompanist and soloist.

But this key role is not without its disadvantages; the drummer has incomparably less freedom than in a small group. He has to memorize the arrangement, playing strictly what has already been laid down, while still leaving room for improvised fills. Some famous drummers have never succeeded in imposing such discipline on themselves. Others have adapted magnificently to it. Such was the case with Kenny, who was able to play with what I will call "controlled madness". In the big band, he played with a big band drummer's phrasing - unlike, for example. Mel Lewis, who in a big band setting performed with exactly the same vocabulary as in a quartet. ...

Running a big band poses all kinds of difficulties, financial and organizational among others. The C.B.B.B. lasted 11 years, and broke up in 1973. It was in no sense a revolutionary band, but there was within it a fundamental and precious element: an intense love of playing. Francy Boland and Kenny Clarke had the great merit of believing that the formation of a European jazz orchestra was possible, despite the supposedly insurmountable obstacles. They believed... and they were right... and we now reap the benefit.”

Georges overview of the Clarke Boland Big Band - known to its many fans as the CBBB - assumes a new relevance with the CD reissue with enhanced audio quality of one of its later recordings on MPS - The Kenny Clarke Francy Boland Big Band - “ALL SMILES."

ABOUT THIS RECORD - by Stefan Franzen [translated by Martin Cook]

“Without ever making concessions to the trend of the moment, the Kenny Clarke Francy Boland Big Band was the embodiment of the timeless art of the jazz orchestra. Its play was proof positive that a jazz big band compiled of top-flite musicians from both sides of the Atlantic could take off and soar. Regarded as the most important big band outside of the US, this bi-continental orchestra recorded over two dozen albums, close to a third of these under the SABA and MRS labels. Recorded in May, 1968, All Smiles was one of the Bands highpoints. The album exhibits a style that became synonymous with this US-European enterprise: it not only swung it was the perfect vehicle for Bolands sophisticated modern arrangements. Trumpeters Benny Bailey and Idrees Sulieman, saxophonists Johnny Griffin and Ronnie Scott, as well as special guest vibraphonist Dave Pike are some of the jazz giants among the soloists in this 17-man combo who turn out some masterly short portraits. From the fleet-footed waltz I’m All Smiles to the bluesy party piece, By Strauss and the sensuous theme from Gloria, the journey continues on through to the furious John Phillip Sousa finale, High School Cadets. Preferring varicolored intricacy over massive walls of sound, The Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland Big Band stood up against the constant flow of momentary fads, remaining true to the inventive tradition of the great big bands.”

Original Liner Notes - by Manfred Miller

[Warning these have some syntactical and grammatical challenges for native speakers of English. I decided to represent them in their original translation as I do not speak enough German to attempt my own.]

The one window is open. Hubbub comes up from the street and into the room that is in Cologne's elegant Hohe Strasse/High Street (no thoroughfare!) on the first floor above the branch of some bank. The large, plain writing-table hides itself under paper. Telegrams, notes, contracts, excerpts pile up to several layers. Two of the three phones at least are constantly in operation. On the second table, in a corner, there, too, is scarcely a spot left for an ash-tray. Sheets of notes, a bunch of newspapers, at least ten tape boxes. If a film chose to feature a manager's office like that everybody would laugh at the cliche of overburdening.

The man who hired this room does work hard. It is not that sort of work, however, which the German treasury of proverbs has always rated higher than fun. The man offers his latest product music. Powerfully swinging, precise, intelligent music, music that interests head and feet and everything in between. “All Smiles" is going to be the title of the new Clarke-Boland Big Band album. The man has to shout to make that understood. The two loudspeakers are turned on to the limits of their capacity. The one window is still open...

Gigi Campi never listens to his tapes quietly. An American trombonist, who for some time belonged to the CBBB, once complained. "Funny band. No dynamics", to the protest of his colleague Nat Peck "Yes there are! One is loud, the other is louder..." An exaggerated sentence, no doubt. Yet like every good exaggeration it catches some truth. The CBBB does not play for self-forgetting, absorbed listeners. If it provokes self-forgetfulness, it is that of rhythmical ecstasy. The CBBB does not know the charms of the morbid. This is hopelessly sound and optimistic music. All Smiles.

The Clarke-Boland guys stand for Ellington's fundamental truth: "It don't mean a thing..." It is not by chance that this band plays with two drummers - as if Klook Clarke alone were not a deuce of a swinger. Once his near namemate Kenny Clare acted as a substitute for Clarke who was prevented from making a date. The Clarke indemnification thrilled the band, he was invited to the next session. Klook personally persuaded the English studio musician to become a constant member with the CBBB - as a percussionist.

"Then there was one number", Clare reports, "a Turkish march thing on which I played snare drum. On the playback it sounded pretty good together, just like one drummer. There were some talks. The next time would I bring my drums along, too? Let's see, if it works with both of us playing together. It worked."

Indeed, Clarke and Clare together play like one musician; only that one musician alone could never realise all they play together. Clare: "There are many who would like to get that springy kind of beat Klook gets. I would, too. When I'm with him I can play that way without even thinking about it. As soon as I'm away from him I can't do it anymore. Strange. I have yet to figure it out." Whatsoever may be the key to this secret - the result is a fabulous co-ordination of the two drummers. The first piece - LET'S FACE THE MUSIC AND DANCE - is an example of this. The fills Klook on the snare drum (for stereo listeners left channel) and Clare on the bass drum do in concert seem as if sprung up from one and the same feeling; and a swinging feeling into the bargain.

It would be wrong, however, to list the CBBB simply under the rubric "powerhouse.” The co-leader, arranger, and pianist Francy Boland has too many ideas for that. You will never catch upon Boland copying simple riffs nor - as the legend goes - exercising. SWEET AND LOVELY forces out of the standard melody continually fresh versions, new harmonic nuances and shades of sound, variations in a strict sense (into which Johnny Griffin excellently joins with a concentrated solo citing motives from the theme once and again): that is - also - an intellectual delight. As the British musical journalist Kenny Graham noted, Francy Boland does not care for trends. Harmonically scored choruses for the reed section have become rare in jazz. Yet Francy dedicates an entire number to the saxophones and with numbers such as YOU STEPPED OUT OF A DREAM, GET OUT OF TOWN and WHEN YOUR LOVER HAS GONE shows what other arrangers do not care to miss.

Certainly who besides Boland disposes of such a reed section? The musicians of the CBBB do not know a comparison to Derek Humble's lead alto that is relaxed and vigorous at once, and ever riding the tip of the beat wave - they give a tired shrug even to the most renowned names. Each of the three tenor saxophonists takes a fine solo - "Li'l Giant" Griffin justifies his nickname time and again. Ronnie Scott blows a virile and straight solo in Gershwin's homage to the king of waltz BY STRAUSS. Tony Coe tells of Dame GLORIA'S merits with rhapsodic vehemence (,,a masterpiece", says Gigi Campi): and Sahib Shihab, who in the Barbara-Streisand-title I'M ALL SMILES solos on flute, is “the outstanding baritone saxophonist of modern jazz" according to Joachim Ernst Berendt. Each of the five reed men is himself a star with a distinguished style of his own, and yet jointly they make up a homogenous and disciplined section. Whosoever generated the rumour that precision and musical temperament were exclusive to one another; he has to be refuted by these five musicians.

And the same applies to the other sections. Benny Bailey, the brilliant, willful lead trumpeter, blows the delicately musical flugelhorn solo in I'M GLAD THERE IS YOU. Cole Porter's GET OUT OF TOWN is meant for Jimmy Deuchar's elegant trumpet and for Ake Persson's powerful trombone-Idrees Sulieman, who in the Clarke-Boland combos mostly comes out with untamed attacca and splendid bop phrases, shows off a different side now: a simple melodic lead and a warm tone in LET'S FACE THE MUSIC AND DANCE and in the standard ballad of WHEN YOUR LOVER HAS GONE, from which he chooses the first few bars to set out a well-controlled improvisation that does not waste a note.

To those who are still in the dark the Sousa-march HIGH SCHOOL CADETS tells what is the matter with the CBBB. That drives on straight away like - well, no: a steam roller is not likely to go so easily at 250 km/h. You had better not try to sit still to these pieces: Let's face the music and dance. Still one thing to tell you: perhaps you really ought to shut that window now.”

TO EVERY AGE ITS SOUND by Dirk Sommer, reissue producer [Translated by Martin Cook]

Yes, we have worked on the sound of the music that was stored on tapes, some of which are over 40 years old, before they were transferred to the lacquers that are used for the vinyl record production. In the music business this is commonly known as remastering. However, it says nothing about how intensively and with what a sense of purpose mastering engineer Christoph Stickel and I have worked on modifying and improving the sound of the original tapes. Of course as with any LP that appears in the triple-a-series, all the procedures took place using only the finest analogue equipment. As the headline - modeled after the Vienna Secession movement's motto: 'to every age its art' - already indicates, every period has its own typical sound esthetic. We felt that fitting the MPS records to the way recordings sound today would be a sort of sacrilege. As a result, we have simply redressed a couple of traces of aging as well as small inconsistencies in the sound that, because of the technological limitations of that time, were not optimally dealt with on the original recordings. So enjoy some of the most exciting jazz albums of the 1970's and 80's the way they originally sounded - despite or because of our remasterings!”

Not too many knew he was slowly fading, except a few of his colleagues who had a scheduled show the night he died. Online prayers came from all corners of the world. And it became all too real when, on the first day of his wake, a sizeable crowd came to bid farewell. Eugene Villaluz had indeed passed on, but instead of sadness, there was a celebratory air among his friends. There were stories from each phase of his life, with singers Basil Valdez, Leo Valdez and Joey Albert cracking jokes in front of the urn, so that Eugene's spirit could enjoy the moment.

          From Cyborgs to Hacktivists: Postfeminist Disobedience and Virtual Communities   
by
Carolyn Guertin
2005-01-27

For many the term postfeminist might call to mind the vanilla pleasures of metrosexuality, webcams, online soaps, and blog culture, but, for me, a 40-something cyberfeminist scholar, curator and some time activist, the politically-minded feminist texts I work with are in fact dyed-in-the-wool postfeminist ones that occupy a different place on the postfeminism continuum from those more loudly-lauded, lighter confections. Usually given a bad rap by the media, postfeminism has been accused of being antifeminist, whereas it is instead what the next wave of second wave feminism has become. Its name is not a marker or movement that intends to imply that feminism is dead and gone, any more than Donna Haraway’s “postgender” and N. Katherine Hayles’ “posthuman” mean the death of those old shoes. As Ann Brooks puts it in Postfeminisms, “the concept of `post’ implies a process of ongoing transformation and change” (1). Postfeminism is that indicator that shows us the organism formerly known as feminism has grown into something far more complex than its liberal origins would lead us to expect.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, second wave feminism, which had spoken predominantly from and to a position of white middle class privilege, began to fracture to include a broader chorus of voices, classes, and races. Postfeminism or, more exactly, postfeminisms have expanded to include a multitude of situated perspectives within the context of postmodern thinking, and have swelled to embrace the new emphasis on what Michèle Barrett identified in 1992 (the year that the World Wide Web was born) as “fluidity and contingency” - features that are the trademark stock in trade of the cyber age. Barrett believed feminism’s paradigm shift to be the result of a new interest in culture that in turn gave rise to a whole new collectivity of subjectivities. It is no accident that this shift coincided with the advent of a technology that foregrounded networked communications. It was only a few years earlier, in the fledgling days of the personal computer back when the Internet was still a vehicle predominantly for hackers and technogeeks, that Haraway first articulated a politics of connectivity for women in the context of these new technologies. In her “Cyborg Manifesto” Haraway’s half-woman, half-machine revels in the confusion of body boundaries and fractures all sense of an originary unity or simplex gender through embracing the cyborg as a model: a being who revels in discursivity, multiplicity, hybridity, and perversity. As the Web has evolved, it has become something of a gene pool for creative explorations of sexualities, subjectivities and identities - and has proved to be as liberating for men as for women in that regard. Cyberfeminist scholar Sadie Plant even argues for the feminizing influence of technology in a connected age. Without a doubt, though, this new technology’s most important role has been that of facilitating communication.

 “cyberfeminism is post-feminist” (76) Cyberfeminism was born at a particular moment in time, 1992, simultaneously at three different points on the globe. In Canada, Nancy Paterson, a celebrated high tech installation artist, penned an article called “Cyberfeminism” for Stacy Horn’s Echo Gopher server. In Australia, VNS Matrix (Josephine Starrs, Julianne Pierce, Francesca da Rimini and Virginia Barratt) coined the term to label their radical feminist acts and their blatantly viral agenda: to insert women, bodily fluids, and political consciousness into electronic spaces. That same year, British cultural theorist Sadie Plant chose the same term to describe her recipe for defining the feminizing influence of technology on western society and its inhabitants.

-Judy Wajcman

Connectivity has been called the genius of feminism by theorist Robin Morgan (53), and this genius is being realized in electronic spaces and texts in more complex ways than in any other medium to date. Connectivity is the poster child of the postfeminist universe, which is why the first cyberfeminist collective, VNS Matrix, chose the image of the matrix - the cosmic womb - as its symbol The Australian collective VNS Matrix announced its inception with a rallying cry called the “Cyberfeminist Manifesto”:
__________
We are the modern cunt
positive anti-reason
unbounded unleashed unforgiving
we see art with our cunt we make art with our cunt
we believe in jouissance madness holiness and poetry
we are the virus of the new world disorder
rupturing the symbolic from within
saboteurs of big daddy mainframe
the clitoris is a direct line to the matrix
VNS MATRIX
terminators of the moral code
mercenaries of slime
go down on the altar of abjection
sucking the visceral temple we speak in tongues
infiltrating disrupting disseminating
corrupting the discourse/we are the future cunt
(http://www.obn.org/reading_room/manifestos/html/cyberfeminist.html)
__________
Its separatist nature bears a resemblance to philosophies put forward by hackers.
. Another cyberfeminist collective, the Old Boys’ Network, defined its local chapters as “nodes” that “collide, disintegrate, regenerate, engage, disembody, reform, collapse, renew, abandon, revise, revitalize, and expand” (OBN FAQ 7). These structural and mechanical concerns are not accidental. Postfeminisms do not inhabit a network; they are the network of feminist discourse in virtual space and they are at their best when they are helping to forge communities of practice. In its incarnation most familiar to ebr ‘s readers, the electronic, hyperlinked text is both a narratological structure and the means of navigation in space and time. In the webbed space of hyperlinked fiction, the pregnant gaps between the nodes are at least as important as the textual nodes themselves. The nodes exist in conjunction with the dynamic space of the journey and cannot be discussed in isolation. So with the newest literary forms of the postfeminist universe. They cannot be separated from the communities and material praxes that they both engender and nurture on and off the Web.

In the cyberfeminist corner of the postfeminist universe, girl gamers such as Brenda Laurel and Mary Flanagan immediately spring to mind; so too do techno-performers such as Laurie Anderson and Coco Fusco, and new media artists such as Mez or Olia Lialina, but the most important and distinctive Web-native postfeminist form is, I would argue, hacktivism. The term was first coined in 1998 The rallying cry of hackers has long been “information wants to be free.” to describe an emerging hybrid form that united the best attributes of peaceful social protest - activism - and tech-savvy online civil disobedience - hackerism The term “hacktivism” has been attributed to a Toronto-based hacker who goes by the handle of Oxblood Ruffin.. It is a solution-oriented form of political action that inserts bodies and media-based dissent into real time material concerns. It should not be confused with its adolescent and illegal cousins, cractivism - code cracking, vandalism, data blockades (DDos) and the loss of digital data - or cyberterrorism - acts and agents of wanton destruction including worms and viruses. One of its trademark features is that the Web cannot contain hacktivism’s flows, allowing it to spill out into the world in the form of political protest at WTO and G8 events, for example, and in books, pamphlets, net.art, and performance art.

Hacktivism as a praxis was born in December 1997 when Critical Art Ensemble Critical Art Ensemble has been very much in the news lately since one of its members, Steve Kurtz, a professor in the Department of Art at SUNY Buffalo, was arrested on 12 May 2004 and charged with bioterrorism under the American Anti-Terrorism Act. These trumped up and widely protested charges have resulted in the FBI appropriating CAE’s materials and equipment used for testing for the presence of genetically- modified DNA - the tools CAE uses in creating their political art. member and software engineer Carmin Karasic was so appalled by the events of the Acteal Massacre - 45 Zapatistas were murdered at the hands of the Mexican government - that she set out to create a Web interface that would perform political protest as an aesthetic act. Three other Critical Art Ensemble members joined her in forming a new collective they named the Electronic Disturbance Theatre. (The group’s name is drawn from the concept of civil disobedience first proposed by Henry David Thoreau.) Their electronic civil disobedience engine is named FloodNet; funded by RTMark and launched in September 1998, it is Karasic’s brainchild in her war against injustice. Filling the browser page with the names of the dead, this activism tool “would access the page for Mexico’s President Zedillo seeking bogus addresses, so the browser would return messages like “human_rights not found on this server” (Cassell). Unlike the attacks launched by cracktivists, no damage is done by this software agent. When the Electronic Disturbance Theatre alerts its “online activists to `commence flooding!’” they visit EDT’s website and click on FloodNet’s icon (Harmon). The software then directs their browser to the target, and cues the same page to load over and over again.

As a postfeminist work, it is no accident that FloodNet must function as a community-based performance:

FloodNet’s action only drew its validity from the number of people showing support. “It was only actualized through thousands and thousands of participants,” she remembers. “It was meaningless without the masses.” Popular support transforms a random act of vandalism into a show of presence, Karasic argues. “This is an important difference between the single hacker/hacktivist who takes down a server with a single script” (qtd. in Cassell).

Similar to the disruptive aestheticization of codework by the Dutch trio jodi.org, Karasic sees her collectivity interface as something more closely akin to “conceptual art” than to cyberterrorism (Harmon). No one and no data are harmed in these `attacks,’ but websites are effectively shut down while the protest is being transmitted.

Advancing human rights through the electronic media is also the purview of another collective, a cyberfeminist one called subRosa. It is currently comprised of Laleh Mehran, Hyla Willis, Steffi Domike, Lucia Sommer, and Faith Wilding. It was also formed in the fall of 1998 - around the same time that Karasic was vowing to respond to Mexican excesses with FloodNet. Donna Haraway was the first to identify science as one of the most insidious cultural forms women needed to address to regain control of their bodies; subRosa follows in that tradition. subRosa uses its art to critique “the relationships between digital technologies, biotechnologies and women’s bodies/lives/work” (Griffis). The goal of these hacktivists, akin to the Electronic Disturbance Theatre’s, is the creation of communities, what they call “female affiliations that respect difference and create productive projects in solidarity with others who are working on similar ones” (Griffis).

Embracing bell hooks’ definition of feminism as that which seeks to eradicate ideologies of domination (qtd in Griffis), subRosa undertakes projects of activism and public education on topics as wide-ranging as eugenics, Frankenfoods, stem cell and cloning research, and Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART). Seeing their purpose as a pedagogical one, they launch inclusive electronic campaigns, publish pamphlets and books, and travel out into (particularly third world) communities to perform their topical art. These are what they call resistant projects, tactical cyberfeminist ones, and situational information theatre: “As cyberfeminists and artists we are using the framework of participatory performance as an information theatre of pedagogical art that models various tactics for intervening and commenting on the seductive representations of the flesh machine” (subRosa). One of the keys to their successful distribution of information is their willingness to mix media and cross boundaries, producing their art and materials in a plethora of formats contextually situated for their audiences. Like FloodNet’s participatory form, subRosa’s mode of information distribution is reproducible, for it argues “[i]n the digital age, resistant cultural producers can embrace recombinance for subversive ends” (subRosa).

All of this may seem somewhat removed from the electronic book and literary traditions, but when postfeminisms meet the new media they encourage these kinds of pleasures in the confusion of boundaries between bodies, texts, technologies, politics, and cultures. In a hyperlinked age when the only true path through a text is a personal journey, the many roads of postfeminism show that comminglings of radical politics and material concerns are alive and well in both the virtual and real worlds. How effective these hacktivist actions are is difficult to measure, but they are remarkable as tools for global mobilization and peaceful protest. It is clear that they are very effective at allowing women’s voices to be heard.

          Year One of the Chris Holtmann Era Will Be Painful but Consistent With Precedent   
Chris Holtmann is in a for a bumpy first year which is simply part of the rebuilding process.

Chris Holtmann replaced Thad Matta as Ohio State's head coach exactly 23 days ago. 

In that window, he's officially brought on his former Butler assistant coaches, welcomed former Butler signee and Ohio hooper Kyle Young, retained David Egelhoff as director of basketball operations, announced Dave Richardson will vacate the strength and conditioning role, first suspended then booted redshirt freshman swingman Derek Funderburk, and announced incoming freshman Braxton Beverly will not be a Buckeye. 

In addition, he and the staff have been evaluating players and making offers right and left. 

With all that activity, he now sports a roster with nine scholarship players, one of which belongs to a former walk-on. 

The moral of those last three paragraphs? Get ready for some spectacular turbulence this season. Embrace it as part of the rebuilding process. It's unavoidable after Gene Smith unfortunately, but finally, saved Thad Matta from himself. 

How bad the on-court output will be in Year One remains to be seen but for context, I was curious how past Buckeye head coaches fared in their own first year. As you'd expect, for the most part, the results weren't much to write home about. 

Here's the goods dating back to Fred Taylor's arrival in 1958:

INAUGURAL SEASON SUCCESS OF PAST OSU HOOPS COACHES
SEASON HEAD COACH OVERALL RECORD CONFERENCE RECORD POSTSEASON?
1958-59 FRED TAYLOR 11-11 7-7 (5TH) NO
1976-77 ELDON MILLER 9-18 4-14 (10TH) NO
1986-87 GARY WILLIAMS 20-13 9-9 (6TH) NCAA 2ND ROUND
1989-90 RANDY AYERS 17-13 10-8 (6TH) NCAA 2ND ROUND
1997-98 JIM O'BRIEN 8-22 1-15 (11TH) NO
2004-05 THAD MATTA 20-12 8-8 (6TH) NO - INELIGIBLE

1958-59: FRED TAYLOR

A former OSU baseball player who went on to play professionally before returning to Ohio State as an assistant basketball coach, Fred Taylor took over as head coach the following season. 

His first year in Columbus was meh as the Buckeyes turned out an 11-11 record including 7-7 in the conference, good for 5th place and no postseason. 

His first team featured Larry Siegfried (19.6 ppg) Larry Huston (16.4) and Dick Furry (11.5) but not much else. 

Of course that one year of pain was quickly forgotten as the 1959-60 season saw Jerry Lucas (26.3 ppg, 16.4 rpg), Mel Nowell (13.1 ppg) and John Havlicek (12.9 ppg), among others, join Siegfried in a march to the program's one and only national championship. 

OSU would make it to the title game each of the next two seasons but fall both times to Cincinnati. 

1976-77: ELDON MILLER

Fresh off a six-year stint at Western Michigan which produced the program's only MAC championship to that point, Miller took over for Taylor ahead of the 1976-77 season. 

Year one was a total dud as the Buckeyes went 9-18 overall and 4-14 in league play to finish 10th and obviously sat on the postseason sidelines. 

Kelvin Ransey was the star of Miller's first season (13.1 ppg) with an assist from Larry Bolden (11.8 ppg) and Terry Burris (11.0 ppg). 

Year two welcomed Herb Williams (16.7 ppg, 11.4 rpg) alongside Ransey (17.6 ppg) and another newcomer, Ken Page (12.3 ppg), to form a more formidable squad but the end result was still just a 16-11 overall mark which again fell short of any postseason bid. 

Miller would reach the NIT semifinals in year three but things finally clicked in year four as the Buckeyes reached the Sweet Sixteen after going 21-8 overall including a 2nd place finish in the B1G powered by Williams, Ransey, Clark Kellogg and Carter Scott. 

1986-87: GARY WILLIAMS

Dennis Hopson scored at-will in college.

After a four-year stop in Boston College, Gary Williams took over at Ohio State in time for the 1986-87 season. 

With Brad Sellers off to the NBA but Dennis Hopson still in the fold, year one of the Williams era saw the Buckeyes post a 20-13 mark and 9-9 in the B1G (6th) leading to an NCAA tournament appearance which ended in the 2nd round. 

Williams employed a hectic 94-feet of basketball mentality creating a new excitement in St. John Arena which quickly helped him earn love from the fans. 

One of only two OSU coaches to win at least 20 games in their first year, Williams struggled to build on the early success as year two produced an identical 20-13 mark but that was only good enough for an NIT berth ending in the finals while year three slipped to 19-15 and an NIT quarterfinals appearance. 

Williams split for his alma mater, Maryland, the following year. 

1989-90: RANDY AYERS

With Williams understandably leaving Ohio State just three years into his tenure, the school turned to Randy Ayers, giving him his first collegiate head coaching gig. 

Ayers went 17-13 in his first season including 10-8 in league action which led to an NCAA tourney bid ending in the 2nd round. 

Lucky for Ayers the cupboard wasn't bare upon arrival as a kid named Jimmy Jackson (16.1 ppg, 5.5 rpg) teamed with veteran pivot Perry Carter (15.2 ppg, 7.8 rpg), Alex Davis and Mark Baker. A slew of young kids still finding their way included names like Chris Jent, Treg Lee, Jamaal Brown and Bill Robinson. 

The next two years produced a Sweet Sixteen (27-4 overall) and a disappointing run to the Elite Eight (26-6 overall) along with a pair of B1G titles. 

Annnnnd then the wheels fell off (or maybe they were shot out) spectacularly over the next five years. The end. 

1997-98: JIM O'BRIEN

Michael Redd got buckets.

Again massaging that Boston College pipeline, Ohio State tabbed Jim O'Brien as the coach to clean up a program in shambles following Ayers' departure. 

With an almost entirely new starting five highlighted by Michael Redd's arrival, OSU went 8-22 overall and produced one league win in 16 tries. 

The following season, however, with Scoonie Penn now eligible post-transfer to team with Redd and the more-seasoned Ken Johnson and Jason Singleton, along with George Reese, the Buckeyes reached the Final Four. 

O'Brien would make the Dance each of the following three seasons but fail to get beyond the 2nd round before the program eventually slipped into dumpster fire status complete with NCAA penalties. 

While the public embarrassment sucked out loud, O'Brien's activities paved the way for something special.. 

2004-05: THAD MATTA

Most of you remember this era clearly. After arriving at Ohio State via Xavier, Matta took a team ineligible for postseason play to 20 wins including an upset of then No. 1 and undefeated Illinois in a program-defining win

Ohio State finished just 6th in the league that season (8-8) but Matta's guidance had lifted the clouds over the program brought on by O'Brien's misdeeds. 

Matta would reach the Dance's 2nd round in year two after capturing his first B1G title (26-6, 10-4) and year three was even better as the Buckeyes again won the conference championship (34-4, 15-1) and made it all the way to the NCAA title game before falling Florida. 

2017-18: CHRIS HOLTMANN

With just those aforementioned nine scholarship players on the roster, one of which recently shed his walk-on status, it's looking like year one of the Holtmann era will be a rocky ride.

That said, it's a necessary evil for a program hanging on for dear life before his arrival. 

With his assistants in place he just needs to find a new strength and conditioning guy after he chose to not to retain Matta leftover, Dave Richardson. 

While at least one prominent local beat reporter believes Richardson was a convenient fall guy, I couldn't disagree more. The logic from the reporter was that players who wanted to get stronger got stronger. My response to that would be do you think Urban Meyer's strength guy, Mickey Marotti, accepts that type of mind-set from a football player? 

Bottom line, year one will require a case of Rolaids but it should not define Holtmann's tenure based on existing factors and what we've seen from inaugural seasons of past coaches.

There's simply too much to fix.


          Forward Derek Funderburk Dismissed From Ohio State Basketball Team, Guard Braxton Beverly Granted Release   
Derek Funderburk has been dismissed from the Ohio State basketball team.

The Ohio State basketball team's already small roster just got even smaller.

Incoming freshman guard Braxton Beverly has been granted a release from the program and redshirt freshman forward Derek Funderburk has been dismissed from the program for "failure to meet team expectations," according to a press release sent by a team spokesman.

Beverly's request for a release is not atypical after a coaching change. Earlier this month, Ohio State was on the other end of a similar situation involving recent signee Kyle Young. A Butler signee, Young was granted a release and signed with the Buckeyes, following head coach Chris Holtmann from Butler to Ohio State.

Beverly thanked Thad Matta, the man who recruited him to Ohio State, and Buckeye athletic director Gene Smith on Twitter:

Zach Fleer of 270 Hoops reports that Beverly is heading to NC State.

Funderburk was suspended by new Holtmann earlier this month for the same reason. Though the team never specified the length of the suspension, they said it would be "determined internally."

Neither player ever played a game for the Buckeyes as Beverly was a member of the 2017 recruiting class and Funderburk, a member of the 2016 class, redshirted his freshman season at Ohio State.

The Buckeyes are now down to just nine players for the upcoming season, including former walk-on guard Joey Lane, who is now on scholarship.


          Brief history of country music   


When Ralph Peer signed Jimmie (Charles) Rodgers and the Carter Family to recording contracts for Victor Records, on August 1, 1927, little did he know what he was starting?







The popular music was to become known as country (folk) music and incorporated many styles and traditions from the origins of the migrants that played the music. To begin with the country was played by both black and white musicians then later country music became predominantly white music. Ray Charles always considered himself to be a country singer, as did Bill Haley and Jerry Lee Lewis.











Throughout the 20s Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family were filling halls and entertaining the homestead through records and radio giving inspiration to many. The Grand Ole Opry started as a radio broadcast in 1926 and soon became an everyday part of Americana.



The basic concept was the theatre was church like with pews for the audience. This helped facilitate the broadcast but also may have been a deliberate attempt to break the music away from the rough Honky Tonks (rough saloons with entertainment areas) . The Grande Ole Opry (Opera for the working person) was moved several times but now has a permanent site in Nashville.



The Ryman Theatre in downtown Nashville sits on a site which was previously the Grand Ole Opry and can be seen in Neil Young’s Prairie Wind.



Also worth catching is the movie, A Prairie Home Companion, which is set in a similar setting to The Grand Ole Opry.



Roy Claxton Acuff made his first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry in 1938, Acuff changed the name of the band to the Smoky Mountain Boys and had many hits including Wabash Cannonball (featuring vocals by Sam 'Dynamite' Hatcher) and "The Great Speckle Bird."







Acuff’s fame was so great that during the war Japanese soldiers cried ‘Death to Acuff’ as they charged with fixed bayonets. By the 30s and 40s cowboy films were incredibly popular worldwide and the music which accompanied them saw Roy Rogers and Gene Autry became household names. Gene had many hits including "Yellow Rose of Texas" (1933), "Mexicana Rose" (1936), "South Of The Border" (1940), and "You Are My Sunshine" (1941).











But it was the Sons of the Pioneers who became the foremost vocal and instrumental group in western music.



They specialised in cowboy songs, setting the standard for every group that has come in their wake. They are also one of the longest surviving country music vocal groups, going into their seventh decade.



Another variation on country came when country swing was combined with big band swing and Dixieland to make incredibly popular dance music. Drums and Hawaiian steel guitars featured prominently as singers like Bob Willis took centre stage.



Bluegrass was another variation when William Smith (Bill) Monroe pioneered the sound with Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs.



Scruggs developed a "three-finger banjo" technique on the five-string banjo which gave bluegrass a distinctive sound with enduring hits like "Blue Moon of Kentucky," which was later recorded by Elvis Presley.







After World War II jazz and country merged with lyrics that took on strong story lines often reflecting working class lives, sadness and human frailty. Pianos were the most common instrument and were frequently played out of tune. As swing music was gradually integrated into the Nashville scene the piano (or tonk) was replaced by the guitar and boogie woogie became Honky Tonk. The term Honky is a colloquialism used by Afro-Americans since the 1900s to describe white people. So the literal translation of Honky Tonk was white boy piano music played loudly and in rough gin joints. Hank (Hiram King) Williams and Ernest Dale Tubb became honky tonk heroes.







Later a more commercial sounding country, centred in Nashville as the music came to represent a blend of pop and country that developed during the 1950s, with Jim Reeves, Patsy Cline, & Eddy Arnold the stalwarts of Nashville Country.











Outlaw Country became popular in the late 1960s and 1970s and saw the resurgence of a more traditional country sound. Charlie Pride, Conway Twittie, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Merle Haggard were all associated with the new order of country.























By the eighties Urban Cowboy music led the faithful away from the roots of the music as it again became more pop orientated. The era was dominated by Kenny Rodgers, Dolly Parton, John Conlee, and Dr Hook.















More recently New Country has reclaimed the past and set it back into its roots with Garth Brooks, Leanne Rhimes, George Strait, Ricky Skaggs, the Judds, Randy Travis, Dixie Chicks, and Ricky Van Shelton all committed to celebrate what made the music great in the first place.

          2016 North Dakota Governor's Photo Contest Winners Selected   
By ND Commerce Tourism Division
First Lady Betsy Dalrymple today recognized the winning photographs and honorable mentions from the 13th annual North Dakota Governor’s Photo Contest in a ceremony in Memorial Hall of the North Dakota Capitol building.
 
Joining the First Lady in the presentation were North Dakota Tourism Director Sara Otte Coleman, North Dakota Council on the Arts (NDCA) Executive Director Beth Gigante Klingenstein and AAA Senior Public Affairs Representative Gene LaDoucer.
 
The contrasting colors of “Watching the Sunset at Double Ditch” catches the attention of a viewer and encourages us all to take a moment to enjoy the beauty all around us, earning Nick Hornbacher the Best of Show and People category awards.
 
This year’s contest set a record with 1,382 photo entries and the most popular category was scenery.
 
“Today we celebrate the talents of our state’s amateur photographers, who uniquely capture the beauty and originality of North Dakota,” the First Lady said. “They experience first-hand the state’s legendary attractions and beautiful scenery awaiting our visitors.”
 
Photos were judged on originality, subject matter, visual appeal and ability to portray North Dakota as a legendary travel destination in the categories of adventure and recreation, places to visit, events, people, scenery and wildlife.
 
“Each year, we’re amazed by the beautiful photos North Dakota’s amateur photographers take and share for this contest. I thank them for sharing their talents with us,” Otte Coleman said.
The North Dakota Governor’s Photo Contest began as a collaborative program between the Governor’s Office and North Dakota Tourism and has grown to include AAA as a contest sponsor and the NDCA as a collaborative partner.
 
The 2016 winning photos will be on display during the months of October, November and December at the Capitol in the offices of Governor Jack Dalrymple, First Lady Betsy Dalrymple and Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem. This is part of a cooperative program between NDCA and the First Lady’s office. Canvas displays were printed and sponsored in part by Mathison’s.
“I am impressed with the creativity and the eye for beauty that is embraced by these North Dakota photographers,” said Klingenstein.  “The beauty of the human spirit and of our state are captured in these wonderful photographs.”
 
AAA, North America’s largest travel organization, will also display winning photos as part of its sponsorship.
 
“Not only do the state’s photographers do a great job of capturing inspiring images, they serve as ambassadors to the state,” LaDoucer said. “Who better to tell the story than those who are living it?”
 
This was the seventh year that photographers could submit photos online through image and video hosting site Flickr.
 
Top category photographers will receive a $200 cash prize for each winning photo and have their work featured in North Dakota Tourism’s marketing materials, along with even greater exposure through contest partner AAA. A Best of Show photo was selected from the winning photographs, and the photographer received an additional $300 cash prize and a free, one-year basic membership to AAA. Honorable mention winners will receive $50 and may also have their images featured in the state’s tourism marketing materials.
 
The North Dakota Governor’s Photo Contest is held annually and is open to any North Dakota amateur   photographers. Next year’s contest will begin in May 2016.

          Global and Local Connectivity Differences Converge With Gene Expression in a Neurodevelopmental Disorder of Known Genetic Origin   
Abstract
Knowledge of genetic cause in neurodevelopmental disorders can highlight molecular and cellular processes critical for typical development. Furthermore, the relative homogeneity of neurodevelopmental disorders of known genetic origin allows the researcher to establish the subsequent neurobiological processes that mediate cognitive and behavioral outcomes. The current study investigated white matter structural connectivity in a group of individuals with intellectual disability due to mutations in ZDHHC9. In addition to shared cause of cognitive impairment, these individuals have a shared cognitive profile, involving oromotor control difficulties and expressive language impairment. Analysis of structural network properties using graph theory measures showed global reductions in mean clustering coefficient and efficiency in the ZDHHC9 group, with maximal differences in frontal and parietal areas. Regional variation in clustering coefficient across cortical regions in ZDHHC9 mutation cases was significantly associated with known pattern of expression of ZDHHC9 in the normal adult human brain. The results demonstrate that a mutation in a single gene impacts upon white matter organization across the whole-brain, but also shows regionally specific effects, according to variation in gene expression. Furthermore, these regionally specific patterns may link to specific developmental mechanisms, and correspond to specific cognitive deficits.

          Palmitoylation of cdc42 Promotes Spine Stabilization and Rescues Spine Density Deficit in a Mouse Model of 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome   
Abstract
22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11DS) is associated with learning and cognitive dysfunctions and a high risk of developing schizophrenia. It has become increasingly clear that dendritic spine plasticity is tightly linked to cognition. Thus, understanding how genes involved in cognitive disorders affect synaptic networks is a major challenge of modern biology. Several studies have pointed to a spine density deficit in 22q11DS transgenic mice models. Using the LgDel mouse model, we first quantified spine deficit at different stages using electron microscopy. Next we performed repetitive confocal imaging over several days on hippocampal organotypic cultures of LgDel mice. We show no imbalanced ratio between daily spine formation and spine elimination, but a decreased spine life expectancy. We corrected this impaired spine stabilization process by overexpressing ZDHHC8 palmitoyltransferase, whose gene belongs to the LgDel microdeletion. Overexpression of one of its substrates, the cdc42 brain-specific variant, under a constitutively active form (cdc42-palm-CA) led to the same result. Finally, we could rescue spine density in vivo, in adult LgDel mice, by injecting pups with a vector expressing cdc42-palm-CA. This study reveals a new role of ZDHHC8-cdc42-palm molecular pathway in postsynaptic structural plasticity and provides new evidence in favor of the dysconnectivity hypothesis for schizophrenia.

          Dopamine is Required for Activity-Dependent Amplification of Arc mRNA in Developing Postnatal Frontal Cortex   
Abstract
The activity-regulated gene Arc/Arg3.1 encodes a postsynaptic protein crucially involved in glutamatergic synaptic plasticity. Genetic mutations in Arc pathway and altered Arc expression in human frontal cortex have been associated with schizophrenia. Although Arc expression has been reported to vary with age, what mechanisms regulate Arc mRNA levels in frontal cortex during postnatal development remains unclear. Using quantitative mRNA analysis of mouse frontal cortical tissues, we mapped the developmental profiles of Arc expression and found that its mRNA levels are sharply amplified near the end of the second postnatal week, when mouse pups open their eyes for the first time after birth. Surprisingly, electrical stimulation of the frontal cortex before eye-opening is not sufficient to drive the amplification of Arc mRNA. Instead, this amplification needs both electrical stimulation and dopamine D1-type receptor (D1R) activation. Furthermore, visual stimuli-driven amplification of Arc mRNA is also dependent on D1R activation and dopamine neurons located in the ventral midbrain. These results indicate that dopamine is required to drive activity-dependent amplification of Arc mRNA in the developing postnatal frontal cortex and suggest that joint electrical and dopaminergic activation is essential to establish the normal expression pattern of a schizophrenia-associated gene during frontal cortical development.

          Dorsal Forebrain-Specific Deficiency of Reelin-Dab1 Signal Causes Behavioral Abnormalities Related to Psychiatric Disorders   
Abstract
Reelin-Dab1 signaling is involved in brain development and neuronal functions. The abnormalities in the signaling through either reduction of Reelin and Dab1 gene expressions or the genomic mutations in the brain have been reported to be associated with psychiatric disorders. However, it has not been clear if the deficiency in Reelin-Dab1 signaling is responsible for symptoms of the disorders. Here, to examine the function of Reelin-Dab1 signaling in the forebrain, we generated dorsal forebrain-specific Dab1 conditional knockout mouse (Dab1 cKO) and performed a behavioral test battery on the Dab1 cKO mice. Although conventional Dab1 null mutant mice exhibit cerebellar atrophy and cerebellar ataxia, the Dab1 cKO mice had normal cerebellum and showed no motor dysfunction. Dab1 cKO mice exhibited behavioral abnormalities, including hyperactivity, decreased anxiety-like behavior, and impairment of working memory, which are reminiscent of symptoms observed in patients with psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. These results suggest that deficiency of Reelin-Dab1 signal in the dorsal forebrain is involved in the pathogenesis of some symptoms of human psychiatric disorders.

Abstract
Background Studies of monogenic gastrointestinal diseases have revealed molecular pathways critical to gut homeostasis and enabled the development of targeted therapies. Methods We studied 11 patients with abdominal pain and diarrhea caused by early-onset protein-losing enteropathy with primary intestinal lymphangiectasia, edema due to hypoproteinemia, malabsorption, and less frequently, bowel inflammation, recurrent infections, and angiopathic thromboembolic disease; the disorder followed an autosomal recessive pattern of inheritance. Whole-exome sequencing was performed to identify gene variants. We evaluated the function of CD55 in patients' cells, which we confirmed by means of exogenous induction of expression of CD55. Results We identified homozygous loss-of-function mutations in the gene encoding CD55 (decay-accelerating factor), which lead to loss of protein expression. Patients' T lymphocytes showed increased complement activation causing surface deposition of complement and the generation of soluble C5a. Costimulatory function and cytokine modulation by CD55 were defective. Genetic reconstitution of CD55 or treatment with a complement-inhibitory therapeutic antibody reversed abnormal complement activation. Conclusions CD55 deficiency with hyperactivation of complement, angiopathic thrombosis, and protein-losing enteropathy (the CHAPLE syndrome) is caused by abnormal complement activation due to biallelic loss-of-function mutations in CD55.

          Postengeschacher bei der Deutschen Bahn auf Hochtouren   
Berlin (dts Nachrichtenagentur) - Das Postengeschacher bei der Deutschen Bahn läuft auf Hochtouren. Der Konzern will die Vorstandsposten für Güterverkehr und Digitalisierung neu besetzen. Mindestens einen der Spitzenpositionen soll eine Frau übernehmen, schreibt die "Bild am Sonntag".

Der Aufsichtsrat des Staatskonzerns tagt dazu in einer Sondersitzung am 20. Juli. SPD und Arbeitnehmervertreter im Aufsichtsrat wollen nach Informationen der Zeitung eine Kandidatin durchsetzen, von der der Bahnvorstand wenig begeistert ist. Vergangene Woche wurde bei Gesprächen im Verkehrsministerium entsprechende Kritik vorgetragen, schreibt die Zeitung. Ein Ergebnis ist nicht bekannt. Bahn und Ministerium lehnen eine Stellungnahme ab. Für den Digital- und Technik-Job zählen nach Informationen der Zeitung zwei weitere Managerinnen zum engsten Bewerberkreis. So eine Chefin eines Computer-Unternehmens in Deutschland und eine Digitalmanagerin bei einem großen Energiekonzern. Sollte es zu den Personalfragen im Bahn-Vorstand keine Einigung im Aufsichtsrat geben, könnten die Entscheidungen auch auf nach der Bundestagswahl vertagt werden.

          AfD plant Verfassungsklage gegen „Ehe für alle“   
Berlin (dts Nachrichtenagentur) - Die AfD plant, gegen die am Freitag im Bundestag beschlossene "Ehe für alle" juristisch vorzugehen. "Wir prüfen derzeit eine Klage beim Bundesverfassungsgericht", sagte AfD-Spitzenkandidat Alexander Gauland der "Bild am Sonntag". "Ich bin für einen solchen Schritt. Die Ehe für alle bedeutet eine Wertebeliebigkeit, die unserer Gesellschaft schadet."

Bundesinnenminister Thomas de Maizière (CDU) räumt einer Verfassungsklage Erfolgschancen ein. "Ich habe gegen dieses Gesetz gestimmt. Ein Grund dafür ist, dass wir aus meiner Sicht als Jurist dafür eine Verfassungsänderung gebraucht hätten", sagte de Maizière derselben Zeitung. Außerdem sei für ihn die Ehe "eine Verbindung zwischen Mann und Frau". Der Innenminister warnt davor, dass das Gesetz über die Ehe für alle "nicht ohne Weiteres umsetzbar" sei, weil eine Reihe von Folgeregelungen fehlten. So sei unklar, ob und wie eingetragene Lebenspartnerschaften in Ehen umgewandelt würden. De Maizière: "Es wird massive Probleme bei der Umsetzung geben, die man dann hinterher reparieren muss." Unterdessen hat der erste schwule CDU-Politiker die Eheschließung mit seinem Partner angekündigt. "Ja, wir werden heiraten", sagte der Stuttgarter Bundestagsabgeordnete Stefan Kaufmann "Bild am Sonntag". "Für uns ist das aber nur noch ein formaler Schritt." Kaufmann ist seit Dezember 2013 verpartnert, im Mai 2015 erhielt das Paar in einem altkatholischen Zeremoniell den kirchlichen Segen.


          Großstädte: Die Mieten steigen wieder schneller   
Berlin (dts Nachrichtenagentur) - Mieter in den sieben größten deutschen Städten müssen sich auf weiter steigende Preise einstellen. In den vergangenen Monaten hat der Mietpreisanstieg noch einmal an Fahrt angenommen: Innerhalb von zwölf Monaten stiegen die durchschnittlichen Angebotsmieten in Berlin, Hamburg, München, Köln, Frankfurt, Stuttgart und Düsseldorf um rund sechs Prozent. Das geht aus Mietpreisdaten hervor, die das Immobilien-Startup "Homeday" für die "Welt am Sonntag" zusammengestellt hat.

In Berlin fiel der Preisaufschlag demzufolge besonders kräftig aus. Dort belief sich der Preissprung im Zeitraum zwischen Juni 2016 und Juni 2017 auf 9,7 Prozent. Damit sind auch in der Hauptstadt bei aktuellen Angeboten Nettokaltmieten von mehr als zehn Euro die Regel. Mit rund drei Prozent stiegen die Mieten in Düsseldorf im gleichen Zeitraum vergleichsweise moderat. Im Vergleich zum Vorjahreszeitraum von Juni 2015 bis einschließlich Mai 2016 hat sich der Mietpreisanstieg demzufolge beschleunigt. Damals stiegen sie um 1,8 Prozent. Die Hauptgründe sind wie schon in der Vergangenheit eine durch Zuwanderung gestiegene Nachfrage sowie eine größere Zahlungsbereitschaft der Bewohner vor Ort. "Ein hohes Arbeitsplatzangebot und eine gute Wirtschaftskraft wirken sich positiv auf die Attraktivität der Metropolen und den Zuzug in die Großstädte aus. Die hohe Wohnungsnachfrage lässt die Mietpreise steigen", so Steffen Wicker, Gründer und Geschäftsführer von Homeday. Zwar hat die Zuwanderung in die Ballungszentren in den vergangenen zwei Jahren abgenommen. In Berlin beispielsweise wandern inzwischen mehr Bürger ins Umland als neue in der Stadt hinzukommen. Angesichts von Wohnungsleerständen zwischen einem und 1,5 Prozent hat dies jedoch kaum Auswirkungen auf den Markt; der Nachfragedruck insgesamt ist weiterhin hoch. Dem Bericht der "Welt am Sonntag" zufolge sind in fast allen untersuchten Städten die Preise in den bereits teuren Stadtteilen nicht mehr so stark gestiegen.


          Jan Ullrich bedauert Dopingvergehen   
Palma de Mallorca (dts Nachrichtenagentur) - 20 Jahre nach seinem Sieg bei der Tour de France hat Jan Ullrich Bedauern über seine Dopingvergehen ausgedrückt. "Zu diesem Thema kann ich nur sagen, dass ich einen Fehler gemacht habe, den ich bereue, und auch meine Strafe dafür bekommen habe", sagte Ullrich der "Welt" (Samstagausgabe). "Ich bin ein Mensch, der nach vorn schaut und der den Sport liebt und immer dahinter stehen wird".

Der deutsche Ex-Radsportstar ist gerade von seiner Schweizer Wahlheimat Scherzingen nach Mallorca gezogen - auch um Abstand zu gewinnen. "Mir geht es sehr gut. Mallorca ist natürlich ein Eldorado für den Radsport", sagte Ullrich und fügte hinzu. "Ich kann hier eigene Rad-Events ausüben und die Familie fühlt sich auch wohl. Der Umzug nach Mallorca war für uns sehr gut." Die Erinnerungen an den größten Triumph seiner Karriere sind ihm nach 20 Jahre noch sehr präsent. "Bis zur Ziellinie habe ich immer noch nicht daran geglaubt. Danach ist es wie ein Traum gewesen, Emotionen, Tränen", sagte Ullrich. Erst Wochen später habe er so richtig realisiert, was er mit seinem Tour-Sieg 1997 ausgelöst habe: einen Radsportboom in Deutschland. Ullrich: "Darauf bin ich sehr stolz."

          [Der LACKtastische Adventskalener] Heiligabend - Eigene Weihnachtsmani.............   
................Hallo meine lieben,

ich wünsche Euch ein frohes und besinnliches Weihnachtsfest im Kreise Eurer Lieben ♥




Leider heißt es auch, dass jetzt 24 wundervolle Türchen geöffnet sind. Ich danke allen Mädels von Herzen, die zum Kalender beigetragen haben. Es war wieder ganz toll mit Euch. Vielen, vielen Dank und ich hoffe wir sehen uns nächstes Jahr wieder ♥.

Meine Weihnachtsmani habe ich recht schlicht gehalten. 

Hauptakteuer ist Love, Actually von Colors by Llarowe. Ich musste diesen Lack aus einem Grund haben, denn Love, Actually ist unser Weihnachtsfilm. Ich liebe ihn einfach ♥♥♥. Das ist für mich Weihnachten und ich freue mich schon darauf ihn nachher zu sehen (Wink zu Nadine :)).

Auf dem Ringfinger kam noch ein kleiner Tannenbaum (Idee von Yagala). Base ist Wild White Ways von Essence und der Baum A Englands Saint George









Ich hoffe, Ihr hattet Freude am LACKtastischen Adventskalender. 

Genießt die Feiertage und lasst es Euch gut gehen!




          [Der LACKtastische Adventskalener] 4. Advent - Adventskranz...................   
...............Zeit um die letzte Kerze anzuzünden. Und in 4 Tagen ist es dann schon soweit. Und die Zeit ist mal wieder gerast. Ich habe das Gefühl, dass jedes Jahr die Vorweihnachtszeit schneller zuende geht. 



Passend zum 4. Advent ist heute Adventskranz unser Thema. 

Ich habe meine Nägel erstmal mit Walk of Fawn von Rival de Loop Young aus der aktuellen Hollywood Fever LE lackiert. Whohooooo, mal wieder Holos in einer LE. Zwar keine In Your Face Holos, aber durchaus hübsch und Drogerieholos muss ich irgendwie aus Prinzip kaufen :D. 

Darauf habe ich noch mit Penny Talk von Essie ein hübsches Muster von der MoYou Fashionista 08 gestampt. 

Dann kamen Tannenzweige auf die Nagelspitzen. Hier kamen A England Saint George, Dragon und Princess Sabra zum Einsatz und die MoYou Festive 08.

Für die Kerzen habe ich mir Kerzen auf der UberMat von UberChic gebastelt. Dafür habe ich Flowerista von Essie verwendet. Nachdem die fertig waren, kam eine Schicht Topcoat drauf. Danach kann man sie ganz einfach abziehen und auf die Nägel legen. 

Zum Schluss habe ich über die Kerzen noch ein paar Tannenzweige gestampt. Und fertig war mein Advenskranz. 








Und, was sagt Ihr zu meinem Adventskranz?

Morgen zeigt uns Ida wie man nicht nur den Weihnachtsbaum, sondern auch die Nägel mit Baumkugeln schmücken kann. 

Und am Heiligabend öffnet sich nochmal ein Gemeinschaftstürchen mit dem Thema "eigene Weihnachtsmani".

Zu guter Letzt werfen wir noch einen Blick in unsere heutige Galerie, die auch Ihr gerne füllen dürft :).



          [Ankündigung] Der LACKtastische Adventskalender 2015..........   
Hallo meine Lieben,

auch in diesem Jahr versüßen Euch wieder 24 lacktastische Türchen die Adventszeit.

Wie auch schon im vergangen Jahr gibt es an den Adventssontagen Gemeinschaftsthemen, an denen auch IHR teilnehmen könnt und sollt. Auf Insta läuft das Ganze unter dem Hääääshtääääg #lackvent2015.

Hier seht Ihr schon mal die Themen :) Ich hoffe natürlich auf eine rege Teilnahme.


Zusätzlich zu den Adventssonntagen posten wir am 24. Dezember noch unsere eigene Weihnachtsmani und Silvester könnt Ihr auch nochmal mitmachen. Eure Beiträge könnt Ihr wieder bei mir via Inlinkz hochladen und ich hoffe wir bekommen tolle, weihnachtliche Galerien zusammen.

Und auch dieses Jahr war Myristine mir wieder eine riesige Hilfe und hat die tolle Image Map erstellt. Tausend Dank dafür ♥♥♥. Mit einem Klick auf den jeweiligen Tag kommt ihr dann zu dem entsprechenden Blog.




Folgende Mädels sind in diesem Jahr dabei


Ich freu mich riesig auf die Designs der Mädels und auf Eure und darauf, dass ich Euch mit meinen erfreue.

Bis Sonntag

          СКА объявил о подписании контракта с хоккеистом Сергеем Калининым   

Сергей Калинин © AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar МОСКВА, 1 июля. /ТАСС/. Санкт-петербургский клуб Континентальной хоккейной лиги (КХЛ) СКА подписал контракт с российским хоккеистом Сергеем Калининым, который прошлый сезон провел в Национальной хоккейной лиге (НХЛ). Об этом сообщает пресс-служба команды. Контракт хоккеиста с российским клубом рассчитан на три года. Ранее стало известно, что СКА выкупил права на Калинина у омского «Авангарда». Калинин является воспитанником омского хоккея. За «Авангард» он выступал с 2009 до 2015 год, проведя 213 игр в регулярном чемпионате КХЛ и набрав 69 очков (31 шайба + 38 передач). В плей-офф КХЛ на его счету 5 очков (3+2) в 31 матче. В 2015 году Калинин перешел в клуб Национальной хоккейной лиги (НХЛ) «Нью-Джерси», в сезоне-2016/17 регулярного чемпионата он провел 43 матча за команду и набрал 4 очка (2 шайбы + 2 передачи), а в феврале 2017 года был обменян в «Торонто», за который не провел ни одной встречи. Форвард в составе сборной России стал чемпионом мира 2014 года, а также бронзовым призером чемпионата мира 2016 года. Источник новости

Most generally but most straightforwardly, surveillance narratives relying heavily on satellite and GPS imagery indicate the place surveillance technologies have come to hold in the formations of geopolitics, particularly through the integration of system and subject. This integration can be traced directly to the manner in which surveillance is incorporated into a film’s storyline, but, perhaps more importantly, also to its increasingly privileged place as an aspect of cinematic continuity systems. What one finds in films that incorporate locative technology and satellite imaging is that both systems serve dual and interrelated purposes: to visually establish an individual subject from a great distance, and to find a technological means within the narrative for motivating crosscutting between shots that construct elaborate plot connections between spaces, people, events, and actions. Whether they include a liberal surface critique of surveillance in their narrative, or unabashedly celebrate the spectacle of global surveillance, such films work to legitimize that caricatured element of the “world image.”

There are myriad examples: In the seminal example of such films, Enemy of the State, the numerous shots coded as satellite images, targeting the protagonist from high above, visually situate him in a variety of complex urban spaces. These shots are then “put into play” as they are crosscut with shots of the satellites themselves in orbit, the satellite operation center, and other figures in the political drama that unfolds.

GPS imaging, a digitally animated rendering of a figure in a given space enabled by satellite locative technologies, serves a similar purpose in these narratives, and is used both alongside and interchangeably with satellite photography. The image, though this time arguably more mediated by digital animation than photographic images, is designed to show a point on a map from above. These data visualizations appear in the same cinematic genre and with an almost identical narrative function as the satellite photography—to visually pinpoint a singular figure within a broad narrative and visual context—and thus GPS also provides a tie between the general and the particular, an individual body and a system. Satellite and GPS images often serve the function of establishing shots, providing the context for the individual storylines that will develop either within the entire film, or within the scene that shot is establishing. Here, however, the establishing shot is a continuous presence, insistently tying the individual’s image and action to its context—a context that includes not just the space the satellite provides an image of, but the space that includes the satellite—a world system in which satellite technologies have an integral part, both symbolic and literal. The cinematic satellite image is, like many surveillance moments within these narratives, a type of point-of-view shot—an image that, insofar as it is highlighted as a technologized vision set apart from the other cinematic images, insistently refers back to itself as much as it refers to the objects it provides images of.

The satellite and GPS images within these films also clearly function as a narrative device, a technique that motivates crosscutting or establishes other cinematic forms of narrative connectivity. The satellite or GPS image almost never exists as a signifying image in and of itself; instead it is used as a mode of producing narrative relationality across very broad fields, and almost inevitably, in a manner that highlights the individual as a geopolitical subject. Most frequently and simply, this will take the form of a chase scene, in which we see not only what is happening on the ground but also the third and broader term in the chase—the larger agency monitoring and directing the chase through satellite and GPS, an agency that represents the broader political context of the smaller, individual actions below. Within these scenes, the surveillant image and the surveilling agency are frequently the narrative touchstone, the fulcrum of the scene, as much if not more than the protagonist (who is rarely aligned with the surveillant gaze) and in this way, we see the further invitation to the film’s spectators to identify themselves with both the system of surveillance and a globalizing visual logic, even as they are also identified with a character subjected to that system.

The fact that the great majority of scenes utilizing satellite and GPS are chase scenes that culminate in destruction and often death (though rarely of the protagonist) is crucial to understanding exactly what kind of global system this is: All the films use surveillance technology that visualizes “location” in such a way that it serves as a narrative and stylistic pivot that constructs relationships among individual bodies, inter- and transnational spaces, and broad global systems through economies of violence. The agency and world citizenship of the protagonists of current political action-thrillers is offered only in relation to a violent targeting, even as they gain increased value within a larger symbolic economy of “global” politics. The frequent result is that these films follow both a narrative and spatial trajectory that frequently establishes Americans as geopolitical subjects through monitored immersion in globalized urban locations.

Enemy of the State, as suggested above, has come to serve as the model for more recent films that incorporate satellite imaging as an integral part of the narrative, and Tony Scott (before his suicide in 2012) was becoming somewhat of a surveillance auteur, continuing these themes and aesthetics in the 2006 action-sci-fi-terrorism-thriller Déjà vu. Enemy of the State tells the fictionalized story of the political intrigue surrounding a bill that allows the U.S. government broad powers of surveillance, pitting corrupt National Security Agency leadership against resistant members of Congress and unwitting citizens. The political tale is told through the filter of one of these citizens, a labor attorney played by Will Smith. With the casting of Smith, Enemy of the State establishes itself as an action-based political film with a personality-based narrative, even before the narrative unfolds. While it is “set” entirely within the U.S., both the political stakes around national security and the use of GPS and satellite within the narrative make this a film that presents domestic concerns (in a number of senses) as on the cusp of global political significance.

Smith’s character, Robert Dean, finds himself by pure happenstance at the center of this intrigue when an old college buddy surreptitiously drops a computer disk into Dean’s shopping bag as he runs for his life. The disk contains surveillance footage of a congressman’s murder, which Dean’s friend, a wildlife researcher, captured unintentionally with a hidden camera intended to record birds. This series of purely accidental encounters results in a large-scale manhunt (already begun with the chase of the friend who slips the disk to Dean), with the massive technological and political power of the NSA unleashed upon Dean by those responsible for the videotaped murder. The narrative is organized around Dean’s discovery that he is being tracked and then targeted, followed by his attempts to extricate himself from the multiple “framings” used against him as weapons: The constant visual frames of the surveillance he is now under, and the information technology-enabled frame-up in which his professional, financial, and personal life are destroyed such that he will have no credibility should he go public with the video.

By using the NSA’s access to massive amounts of personal data as the method of targeting Dean alongside its elaborate geo-surveillance operation, the film already effectively elides any distinction between its surveillance system and the myriad economic and social systems through which daily life functions in the contemporary United States. Here, Enemy of the State suggests the dependence of a subject’s position on the “correct” functioning of multiple systems (computer systems, legal systems, financial systems, etc.), which a surveillant narrative structure produces as integrated and thus unstable—a threat to one’s very identity. Ultimately, the film goes to great lengths to demonstrate how an individual’s life, in this case bourgeois domestic life in particular, is inextricably linked to geopolitical concerns; in no uncertain terms, it also makes clear that the tie that binds these realms is a network of surveillance systems.

Similarly to the visual system described above, in which the pinpointing of an individual is tied to a representation of global totality through satellite imaging, Enemy of the State insists that the political debates about national security versus individual rights come down to a question of how much one’s domestic space can and should be put into relationship with national security practices and geopolitical systems. The increasing intrusion of the NSA into Dean’s life also involves the revelation of his marital problems resulting from a prior affair, and the film moves frequently back and forth between his domestic space and his implication in the political conspiracy. The suggestions of marital difficulty are themselves heavily interspersed with clear visual and narrative representations of an upper-middle-class couple very much in love and happy in the domestic space that they share with their young son. As the surveillance is ratcheted up, the fallout from his infidelity is reactivated and his marriage and domestic life are destabilized; the plot thread in which he evades surveillance, clears his name, and manages to expose the government figures targeting him is joined with the plot thread in which he reconnects with his wife and re-establishes domestic propriety and happiness.

In and of itself, this is unremarkable—surveillance films are certainly not the only Hollywood narratives in which the establishment or re-establishment of a heterosexual union is provided as the corollary resolution to a parallel or primary narrative thread. As has been argued in numerous contexts, this is the very lifeblood of classical Hollywood narrative. The particular insistence on this formula in this context is notable more for the significance that “intimate,” domestic space comes to hold in a film that is on every other level concerned with presenting as broad an aesthetic and narrative as possible. Unlike the films of the 1970s and 1980s, which feature usually unmarried and often antisocial protagonists attempting to uncover a vast political system, the otherwise paranoid political vision of Enemy of the State returns to a more classical Hollywood formula. The film’s structure and its reliance on heterosexual monogamy to define both discord and resolution imply that geopolitical stakes are in some ways reducible to the domestic stakes of the bourgeois household.

To drive this point home (as it were), the film closes not with Dean’s successful escape from surveillance but instead with multiple formations of surveillant mediation “managed” within and by domesticity. The final scene presents Dean and his wife sitting on their couch watching television: They have exposed the “bad apples” in the U.S. government with the help of an ex-NSA operative now working as a surveillance expert, Edward Lyle (played by Gene Hackman in what is one of this film’s several references to the earlier canonical surveillance narrative, The Conversation). As they watch the political story from which they have now extricated themselves play out on their television, “resolution” here suggests a return to their proper roles as spectators. As Dean’s wife (also an attorney) shouts her critiques of governmental surveillance at the screen, he playfully turns her comments into a sexual innuendo, and the connection between their position as media consumers, the liberal critique of government overreach, and the stability of their upper-middle-class existence becomes synonymous with narrative resolution.

The scene continues with Dean flipping through the channels until he sees a live video image of himself, sitting and watching TV. Realizing that this surveillance shot is a perversely playful greeting from his mysterious ally, he responds conversationally to the television as Lyle communicates a message through a series of televised images. Rather than respond with outrage that Lyle has invaded his home, Dean merely teases him—“You are one sick man”—and accepts this “friendly” invasion of his privacy as humorous. The film closes with Dean’s television returning to its usual broadcast in the form of Larry King, who in 1998 was an iconic political talk show host, conducting a discussion about surveillance and national security, followed by a cut to the film’s final imagery: satellite photography of the globe—the “Earth-shot” Lisa Parks cites as the emblematic image of idealized globalization. King’s characteristic political narcissism provides the film’s concluding dialogue in voiceover: “You’ve got no right to come into my home.”

The contiguity offered between domestic space and global imaging is announced here with little subtlety: A final political comment provided by a televised media figure on the sanctity of domestic space, accompanied by an image of the globe, sets the terms fairly clearly. Even while the media provides critiques of surveillance culture, it is that same mediating presence that provides the link between the “world system” and individual subjects within it. By establishing both a visual and narrative continuity between the personal and the political, the singular and the total, the house and the globe, all through devices of surveillance and mediation, the film indicates that it is in some ways proper domestic work—and the task of the media consumer—to establish one’s place in the global system. The connection to legal and political debates about security versus privacy is clear, but what the film seems to suggest is that ultimately the privacy at stake is that of the liberal bourgeois subject who, even if his or her domestic life isn’t perfect, ultimately has “nothing to hide” and must, like Dean, merely accept with begrudging good humor the pervasiveness of surveillance as part of the economy of mediation in upper-middle-class America.

A reading of this film through its positioning of the ideal liberal bourgeois subject in a security state is bolstered by the casting of a black actor and celebrity, Will Smith, in the lead role. Beyond its function as a star vehicle for Smith, it is not inconsequential that a film about the unfair targeting of a black man by American surveillance and security operatives takes such pains to emphasize this targeting as an absolute, unequivocal coincidence. Both in the casting of Smith and the implicit reliance on his bankability as an action star, the film narrates the overreach of state surveillance in the 1990s in a framework that completely ignores and even puts under erasure the racial projects of American surveillance (and cinema): the racializing and profiling central to the policing of black populations, the Islamophobic securitization characteristic of the 1990s on through today, and countless others that have rendered the histories of surveillance inseparable from the histories of race in the United States. Instead, Smith is cast in a role that in today’s parlance would be referred to as “postracial” (in terms of both his upward career trajectory and his narrative function within the film), suggesting a significant disavowal at the heart of this critique of surveillance and an investment in the idea that this could happen to anyone (an idea that also has come to define contemporary forms of celebrity, especially as constructed by reality programming).

If we consider the film’s narrative formulation in relation to the stylistic constructions discussed earlier, what emerges is that Enemy of the State’s narrative efforts to establish the individual subject in relation to a global system do not ultimately serve to highlight the political implications and context of an otherwise individualized subject. Rather, they serve to eclipse historically embodied political experience, particularly as defined by racial identity, in favor of a liberal subject defined in relation to an aesthetic of geopolitics, an aesthetic produced through the incorporation of global imaging and information systems into cinematic continuity devices and broader media culture. This aesthetic in turn serves to centralize and privilege the place of the bourgeois media consumer even as that consumer is shown to be endangered by the very technologies that enable his or her position.

          Comment on Follow Re-Imagine Menlo Park On Nextdoor by bschwanke   
Hi Dana , Thanks for opening up this conversation. We agree with all your ideas in concept. The parking structure concept has been bantered around for over 15 years and we are certainly at the point where it is sorely needed. Re; Closing off a portion of Santa Cruz ; I have lived in Eugene OR , Boulder and also visited many smaller communities where this has been done and either flourished or failed. The communities where it seems to flourish have had mostly mixed use buildings,2-3-4 stories with retail/restaurants on the ground and apts and office above. They also have a strong downtown business owners association, who meet monthly to plan themed activities, art walks, sidewalk sales and samples, music end kids events. Maybe it could be done for a trial basis. *But it does not seem feasible to do prior to the parking structure construction. Bend Oregon debated doing this for 10 years and did do it somewhat on a trial basis. Then decided to do it on a monthly or bi monthly basis in the summers. It has been great for business , but it is event based. Some last for 1-2 days or occasionally more. But it too was started after the parking structure was in place. All employees of commercial building there are required to use the Structure at a discounted rate. TRAFFIC MITIGATION is our biggest concern. The entire El Camino corridor from MTview- RWC is getting maxed out with apts and offices. Needless to say we need to keep the winding pass through traffic out of our neighborhoods as people wind their way to 280 from Menlo.....the current city council seems to have no sitivity to the importance of this issue. They are turning several lovely quiet neighborhoods into pass through areas, most of which don't even have sidewalks. Projects of the scale being built have had pretty terrible proactive environmental impact studies w/ regards to the traffic on El camino. I do not know of one that unifies all the combined impact of projects of the EC corridor. (.........but we do have a guarantee it will be a mess ;-/ ) Looking forward to how this forum evolves....will look for the title of some books we ve read on current town/village urban design where the street closure issues are covered and forward to you.

          Improbable Return Makes Defense of Senior Open Title Possible   
Gene Sauers, the winner of last year’s United States Senior Open, has found success after nearly losing his life to a rare skin condition in 2011.
          Bridge Over River Panic   
Current Mood: Trying to figure out how to do 8 hours' worth of work in 4.

Current Song: Bad Body Double by Imogen Heap

If you know me at all, you know I'm a worrier. I worry all the time. Sometimes I downright panic. You won't see it because I put on a great poker face, but I might be freaking out. These days I worry less about big things, and more about small things. In my mind, there are two kinds of worries: immediate worries (like your hair is on fire), and far-off worries (like how in the world you'll ever own real estate in British Columbia in 2018).

I have discovered that spending time worrying about the latter is counterproductive. I minimize this type of worry with one phrase: "I'll cross that bridge when I get to it."

The real estate market is not something I control, or can predict with my level of statistical knowledge. I worry about the things I can control though: Am I saving money for said purchase, and more importantly, have I made strides to put out the fire on my head?

I'm being tongue-in-cheek about this of course. My hair products are non-flammable, and my hair is just fine.

The world is full of worry, but you have to pick which ones are worth thinking about and which ones are not. It can be overwhelming to try and see your entire future in one fell swoop. If you're going to worry, you might as well worry about one thing at a time, starting with what you can take care of immediately.

Charlie Brown said it right when he said, "You know how I dread the whole year? Now I'm only going to dread one day at a time."

I'll probably always worry. I think it's a dominant gene in my family. But my mother's advice rings true with this one too, "Work smarter, not harder." So if I'm going to continue to worry...or for that matter, if you're going to continue to worry, be smart about what you worry about. No need to start putting carts before horses (unless the horse is going in the other direction).

As for the rest? We'll cross that bridge when we get to it.
          Don't Nobody Bring me, No Bad News... I wish.   

      Just once in my life, I’d like to go to a doctor’s office and walk out with a diagnosis of “Just take these few pills and you’ll be right as rain in no time.” But, no, that’s not my luck or life. I went into my PCP a few weeks ago, because the little nodules in my palms (painless) we suddenly growing rapidly and were very rock hard to the touch. She sent me over to a hand specialist with the expectations they were just simple ganglion cysts that can be removed in a simple office visit. NOPE. These are not cysts. I have Dupuytren’s Disease, which could potentially cause my fingers to curl into my palms and become immovable. It’s a genetic disease, a faulty gene in my DNA is the culprit, my body is creating fibrous scar tissue on healthy muscle, skin and tendons, sending out fibers to connect together tendons and tissue like a spider web, pulling the fibers taught and hard (Like it’s trying to knit a wound together where there is no wound.)

      There is no cure, surgery to cut the fibers when it gets to that stage is the only option and it involves skin grafts too. It’s very invasive because the fibers also connect to nerves, one bad CUT in surgery and the nerve is severed. It’s also not a permanent cure. Once this gene is triggered, it doesn’t stop. The surgery would have to be repeated every few years. Thankfully, I’m not that far along yet. But I am showing rapid fibrous growth, not a good sign. Rather heartbreaking news for an author and an artist who rely on using their hands. So I am NOT in the best of moods today as I walk out of yet another Doctor’s office with ONE MORE DISEASE added to my laundry list of Diseases.

  • ·         Severe Pulmonary Disease
  • ·         Chronic Acute Asthma
  • ·         Type II Diabetes
  • ·         Diabetes Mellitus Peripheral Neuropathy
  • ·         Degenerative Bone Disease (Osteoporosis)
  • ·         Osteoarthritis
  • ·         Gastroparesis (Neuropathy of the Stomach)
  • ·         Myofascial Pain Lower Back Protruding L3, L4, L5 Vertebrae
  • ·         Pre-Renal Neuropathy (Progressive Kidney failure,)
  • ·         And now Dupuytren’s Disease.

      I don’t need to have every medical condition in the book thanks! It freaking sucks.

      People call me “strong” and “brave” and a “fighter”. Well, you know what… it’s only because I have to be. There’s no secret to coping, you just *DO*. You have two choices. Live life as best you can for as long as you can and do everything Doctor’s tell you to try and stay alive just one more day. *Or* you can give up. I may be a lot of things, but I have never been a quitter. Never give up, never surrender!

          Comment on The SPLC: Another favorite academic primary source falls apart by Rusty Writer   
If we accept the claims in this article, it still leaves out the most important point: After 40 years of 'change' claims, every major, decades-old Christian ex-gay ministry from the US to Australia closed forever. Leaders admitted no Christians had changed from homosexual to heterosexual. This confirmed what every medical association had long explained: sexual orientation is not a choice. "Pray away the gay" and "pay away the gay" therapies failed totally. Reparative gay conversion therapy, which was never scientific or medical (religiously based in spite of denials) was proven in court (JONAH case) to be consumer fraud. The supreme court affirmed this ruling by deciding not to even hear the appeal of the gay-curing quacks who the medical experts said healed nobody and harmed many. Brain scans show differences for homosexuals vs. heterosexuals with fetal brain scans showing those areas of difference begin to form in utero. Science has gone way past the original gay gene theory, discovering the role of epigenetic markers and hormones which interact with genes in the development of sexuality. But, what is the alternative explanation to being born gay? Freud's 1890's speculations that childhood traumas determine sexual orientation. One would expect compassion from those who hold this position since traumas like rape do great harm, more than a child can deal with. Yet, sadly this has not been the conservative stance.

          I Threshold Limit Values dell’ACGIH   


Il decreto legislativo 81/2008 definisce come Valore Limite, il limite della concentrazione media, ponderata in funzione del tempo, di un agente cancerogeno o mutageno nell’aria, rilevabile entro la zona di respirazione di un lavoratore, in relazione a un periodo di riferimento determinato, stabilito nell’Allegato XLIII. Rimane però ancora controversa l'opinione in base alla quale si può ritenere che esista, per le sostanze cancerogene, un livello di soglia “sicuro” al di sotto del quale il rischio di contrarre il tumore sia nullo. Esistono dei modelli matematici che descrivono la relazione dose-risposta per queste sostanze e che consentono di estrapolare il livello al di sotto del quale il rischio è pari a zero (NOEL, Not Observed Effect Limit).

Tuttavia, il comportamento di molte sostanze cancerogene è difficilmente classificabile in modelli comportamentali netti; la risposta individuale a tali sostanze è molto variabile ed adottare un modello matematico al posto di un altro, alle basse dosi, può portare a notevoli differenze nella stima della soglia di rischio. Nonostante i dubbi sulla loro efficacia, sono fissati a livello nazionale ed internazionale dei valori limite di esposizione professionali anche per gli agenti chimici cancerogeni e mutageni, nell’ottica che l’attribuzione di un limite possa comunque essere cautelativa per i lavoratori.

In una posizione intermedia si colloca la filosofia alla base dei noti TLV (Threshold Limit Values) dell’ACGIH (American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists), il cui uso è probabilmente il più diffuso nei paesi industrializzati; questi “valori limite di soglia” indicano, per ognuna delle sostanze elencate, le concentrazioni delle sostanze aerodisperse alle quali si ritiene che la maggior parte dei lavoratori possa rimanere esposta per turni lavorativi di otto ore al giorno, quaranta ore a settimana, quarantotto settimane all’anno, quaranta anni di vita lavorativa, senza effetti negativi per la salute.

Tuttavia, a causa della notevole variabilità della sensibilità individuale, una piccola percentuale di lavoratori può accusare disagi in presenza di alcune sostanze le cui concentrazioni siano pari o inferiori ai rispettivi TLV e, in una percentuale ancora minore di esposti, si può osservare un effetto più marcato per l’aggravarsi di condizioni patologiche preesistenti o per l’insorgere di una malattia professionale. Alcuni individui possono inoltre essere ipersuscettibili o sensibili in modo insolito a talune sostanze in conseguenza di fattori genetici, età, abitudini personali (fumo, abuso di alcolici, altre droghe), cure farmacologiche o esposizioni pregresse. Tali lavoratori possono non risultare adeguatamente protetti contro gli effetti avversi per la salute da parte di agenti chimici presenti in concentrazioni pari o inferiori ai TLV e il medico competente deve stimare il grado di protezione addizionale opportuno per tali soggetti.

I TLV sono stati stabiliti (e vengono annualmente aggiornati) in base a dati della letteratura scientifica internazionale relativi a studi epidemiologici in campo industriale, a ricerche sperimentali sull’uomo, su animali e su colture cellulari, possibilmente combinando tutti questi elementi di giudizio. A seconda del tipo di sostanza presa in considerazione, possono variare sia la tipologia di danno che si vuole prevenire, sia la natura e l’entità delle informazioni tossicologiche e sanitarie disponibili per stabilire ed aggiornare i TLV. In ogni caso bisogna rimarcare che questi limiti non costituiscono una linea di demarcazione netta fra concentrazione non pericolosa e concentrazione pericolosa, né un indice relativo di tossicità; essi non vanno adottati per scopi diversi o con modalità differenti da quelli per cui sono stati formulati ed, in ogni caso, non debbono essere utilizzati da persone non esperte nella disciplina dell’Igiene del Lavoro.

L’ACGIH prevede tre categorie di TLV:

- Valore limite di soglia- media ponderata nel tempo (TLV-TWA) concentrazione media ponderata nel tempo, su una giornata lavorativa convenzionale di otto ore e su quaranta ore lavorative settimanali, alla quale quasi tutti i lavoratori possono essere ripetutamente esposti, giorno dopo giorno, senza effetti negativi;

- Valore limite di soglia - limite per breve tempo di esposizione (TLV-STEL) concentrazione alla quale i lavoratori possono essere esposti continuativamente per breve periodo di tempo, purché il TLV-TWA giornaliero non venga superato, senza che insorgano irritazione, danno cronico o irreversibile del tessuto, riduzione dello stato di vigilanza di grado sufficiente ad accrescere le probabilità di infortuni od influire sulle capacità di mettersi in salvo o ridurre materialmente l’efficienza lavorativa. Il TLV-STEL non costituisce un limite di esposizione separato indipendente, ma piuttosto integra il TLV-TWA di una sostanza la cui azione tossica sia principalmente di natura cronica, qualora esistano effetti acuti riconosciuti. Gli STEL vengono raccomandati quando l’esposizione umana od animale ad alta concentrazione per breve durata ha messo in evidenza effetti tossici. Uno STEL viene definito come esposizione media ponderata su un periodo di 15 minuti, che non deve essere mai superata nella giornata lavorativa, anche se la media ponderata su 8 ore è inferiore al TLV. Esposizioni al valore STEL non devono protrarsi oltre i 15 minuti e non devono ripetersi per più di 4 volte al giorno. Fra esposizioni successive al valore STEL debbono intercorrere almeno 60 minuti. Un periodo di mediazione diverso dai 15 minuti può essere consigliabile se ciò è giustificato da effetti biologici osservati.

- Valore limite di soglia - Ceiling (TLV- C) concentrazione che non deve essere superata durante l’attività lavorativa nemmeno per un brevissimo periodo di tempo. Per alcune sostanze, quali i gas irritanti, riveste importanza la sola categoria del TLV-C; per altre sostanze, in funzione della loro azione fisiologica, possono essere importanti due o tre categorie di TLV.

          Nowitzki über Karriereende: "Noch ein paar Jahre weg"    

Wie geht es für Dirk Nowitzki bei den Dallas Mavericks weiter?

Noch wurde der Vertrag des 39-Jährigen bei den Texanern nicht verlängert. "Ich glaube es ist nichts Neues, dass ich gerne bleiben will und dass sie mich behalten wollen. Das wird eher eine Formsache werden", sagte Nowitzki im exklusiven SPORT1-Interview.

Für den dreifachen Vater ist weniger seine eigene Zukunft wichtig, als die seiner Mannschaftskollegen. "Erst einmal stehen die anderen Free Agents im Vordergrund, vor allem Nerlens Noel wollen wir natürlich halten, aber auch einige andere."

Ob er auch über seine aktive Karriere hinaus den Mavs erhalten bleibt, ist offen. Seine Laufbahn wird offenbar noch länger als ein Jahr andauern. "Wenn die Karriere vorbei ist, steht die Familie im Vordergrund. Dann kann man sich zusammensetzen und schauen, was kommt. Aber ich glaube, das ist noch ein paar Jahre weg", so Nowitzki.

Nowitzki will wieder angreifen

Nach der letzten Saison, in der Nowitzki mit hartnäckigen Achillessehnen-Problemen zu kämpfen hatte, will der Würzburger in der neuen Saison wieder voll angreifen. Wichtig dabei ist vor allem, "dass sich die jungen Spieler ein bisschen verbessern. Dann werden wir hoffentlich auch wieder um die Playoffs mitspielen. Aber es wird schwer, im Westen sind sehr viele gute Mannschaften unterwegs. Es wird eng."

Am Montag spielt Nowitzki erst einmal Fußball für den guten Zweck. In der Mainzer Opel Arena steigt zum zweiten Mal das "Champions for Charity"-Match. Viele Prominente, unter anderem Miroslav Klose, Mika Häkkinen, Lukas Podolski und Mick Schumacher kicken zugunsten der Dirk-Nowitzki-Stiftung und der "Keep Fighting"-Initiative von Michael Schumacher. SPORT1 überträgt das Spiel ab 19 Uhr LIVE.

Lý do chính khiến phụ nữ sống thọ hơn nam giới

Theo một nghiên cứu công bố tại Australia, lý do phụ nữ sống lâu hơn nam giới không chỉ bởi họ ít bị béo phì, có thái độ sống tích cực, ít hút thuốc... mà còn bởi tính di truyền.


Các nhà khoa học thuộc Đại học Monash ở thành phố Melbourne, Australia và Đại học Lancaster ở Anh cho biết, phụ nữ và nam giới đều có ADN ti thể (mitochondrial ADN), tuy nhiên, chỉ có phụ nữ có khả năng miễn dịch với các đột biến trong ADN ti thể. Điều này có nghĩa là nam giới dễ bị đột biến ADN ti thể hơn phụ nữ, từ đó ảnh hưởng tiêu cực tới tuổi thọ.

Nhà nghiên cứu Damian Dowling ở Đại học Monash nói: "Sự khác biệt này không bắt nguồn từ những khác biệt liên quan tới hoócmon giới tính mà do yếu tố gene di truyền gây ra".

Ti thể là bào quan phổ biến ở các tế bào nhân chuẩn có lớp màng kép và hệ gene riêng. Ti thể được coi là trung tâm năng lượng của tế bào vì là nơi chuyển hóa các chất hữu cơ thành năng lượng tế bào có thể sử dụng.

Ti thể cũng có mối liên hệ chặt chẽ với quá trình lão hóa. Dù cả nam giới và phụ nữ đều có ADN ti thể, song chỉ có người mẹ di truyền ADN ti thể cho con cái.

Cơ quan Thống kê Australia cho rằng, một bé gái sinh ở thời điểm hiện tại có thể sống tới 84 tuổi, trong khi bé trai chỉ thọ đến 80 tuổi.

          Is Plastic Killing Us? The True Cost of Convenience   

Plastic is really hard to avoid. In fact, it's everywhere. Clothing, mattresses, furniture, carpet - plastic is used to prevent fires as well as food stains.

And now, plastic is in an even more exciting place! Your bloodstream. Can Teflon-coated arteries be far behind?

The recent stories about the return of serious metastisized cancers in public political figures Elizabeth Edwards and Tony Snow tripped my anxiety switch a bit. Less so than with the impending recession, but enough to get me worried. Almost everyone knows someone who is living with, or has died from, cancer. My own grandfather had colon cancer. Half of my mother's friends appear to be recovering from breast cancer.

It all started with Eve

Recent studies are placing some of the cancer blame on female hormones. Man, women get blamed for everything. But seriously, estrogen just doesn't seem to do anything right. First, we were using it to ease symptoms of menopause in women, then it was found to increase cancer rates. Estrogen released by sewage systems is causing problems with fish populations. And now, it seems, estrogen, or chemicals that mimic estrogen's properties, are causing cancer left and right.

In lab rodents, anyway.

As reported in the St. Louis Post Dispatch, scientists are just now discovering the link between plastics and estrogen. And it's kind of scary.

In studies with mice, researchers have found that adult females exposed to bisphenol A in the womb have irregular estrus cycles and stop cycling earlier than unexposed females. The animals exposed to the chemical had changes in a part of the brain that controls ovulation and cycling, Soto said. Female rats exposed to bisphenol A in the womb developed carcinoma in situ and pre-cancerous changes in their mammary tissue as adults, she said.

Bisphenol A is a compound that was studied in the 1930s for purposed of birth control, so its link to estrogen-like behavior is clear (estrogen is used in birth control pills to prevent pregnancy). The fact that bisphenol A molecules can link together to form a type of plastic is what makes it fascinating. Its potential for industrial use is why it was never actually used for birth control.

Well, just because you're not popping it in your mouth everyday at the same time in the form of a pill, that doesn't mean that you don't have bisphenol floating around in your body.

The chemical is ubiquitous and almost unavoidable.... Most people carry the chemical around in their bodies at low levels — about 1 part per billion in blood, urine and tissues. "That seems like a staggeringly small number until you realize that the natural hormone it's acting like works at levels 10,000 times lower than that...."

Is there a frugal angle here?

Some of you Frugal Freaks are now saying, "Um, Andrea? That is your name, right? Well, I like my Wise Bread posts to be about money and how I can save it. Not about dumb things like health care and cancer and how cancer affects me and the public... and the uninsured... and job performance, and as an extension, taxes and healthcare costs as they apply to the insured... and... OK, Andrea, I get the damn point. Cancer is affecting us, and trickle down economics means that, even if I don't get cancer, it the rates are skyrocketing, it will affect my bottom line somehow."

Excellent, I'm glad you understand. If you like, we can put aside the emotional impact of living and dealing with cancer. If you get really cold and calculating about it, cancer is expensive, in terms of time and money and productivity. Cancer costs. And as baby boomers age, it's going to cost all of us more and more.

What can we do?

San Francisco, my favorite bastion of forward-thinking, politically active and highly paranoid citizens, was thinking of banning the chemical in children's products back in 2005. I'm having trouble finding out if the ban actually occurred, but the plastics industry went completely insane. You can read a great rebuttal from a Plastics Council hack here, or enjoy a "consumers" group that is completely dedicated to keeping bisphenol A in our products.

I wonder if there was a similar consumers group that was pushing to keep saccharine in our diet drinks?

Industry reps, of course, deny that there is any problem with bisphenol A, using this brilliant logic:

"This isn't a basketball game. You don't just count up studies and see what the score is," said Steven G. Hentges, executive director of the Polycarbonate Bisphenol A Global Group of the American Chemistry Council.

Actually, you CAN add up the studies and see what the score is. That's the whole point of studies. I mean, yes, many scientific studies are flawed, and other factors must always be taken into consideration. For instance, what if it turned out that every person tested in the bisphenol studies was a pack-a-day smoker. We'd expect to see elevated levels of cancer in smokers. But in this case, we're talking about 140 government-sponsored studies, not a few rogue studies by whacky environmentalists.

The Great Divide

As usual, this controversy seems to be divided along political lines. People who really love bisphenol A are either industry reps or Fox News contributors who run web sites that mock the hell out of Al Gore. Many sites that seem to take the concerns about BPA seriously are run by environmentalists.

But the Nation Institutes of Health is looking into this matter, so for now, the best we can do is really push for further studies to see if the amounts of BPA that we have in our bloodstream are really dangerous to us.

OK, fine, but really, how do I avoid this stuff?

Well, I wish that I could simply give you a list of things to avoid, but unless you are going to get Lasik surgery (since bisphenol A is found in glasses and contact lenses) and throw away your Nalgene bottle (and a host of other products), then really this is one of those issues where you have to get politically involved.

OK, fine. Here's a list of products that may contain bisphenol A, and some possible alternatives:

  • Hard, clear plastic baby bottles - EVERYONE knows that breast is best! Or use glass bottles like my parents did.
  • Hard, clear, sometimes tinted, plastic water bottles - I never liked those Nalgene bottles anyway.
  • Hard, clear plastic bowls, tableware, storage containers - Use glass and ceramic.
  • Liners inside food and drink cans - You shouldn't be drinking stuff from cans, anyway.
  • Dental sealant to prevent cavities - Brush your teeth! Don't let them seal your teeth with plastic!
  • Electronic equipment - Read a book. I can't think of anything else, because I love electronics equipment, and that's a broad category.
  • Sports safety equipment - I'm not going to suggest that you don't wear a helmet. WEAR A HELMET.
  • Medical devices - Too darn bad. Can't do without those.
  • Pet carriers - Would it be uncouth to suggest just bounding and gagging the little critters?
  • Spray-on flame retardants - Nope. Can't avoid these. Unless you shop for natural furniture and floors.
  • CD/DVDs - iTunes, baby.

Pretty tough to avoid all that stuff, isn't it?

Unfortunately, I'm not sure that there is a great answer out there as to how to deal with something as ubiquitous as this chemical. Plastics are an undeniably amazing product. But I'm starting to question just how many bits of Tupperware I need.

Also, I'm feeling bad about mocking the New York lady for taking her food to work in a mason jar. Maybe she has the right idea.





          GMO, Mental Health, and your Immune System - Episode 291

Is society headng into a breakdown. Is society becoming more polarized.

Martin shares his experience at the True Hope conference. Are we medicated towards mental illness and obesity.

What happened in Oregon and Colorado with GMO legislation? Monsanto spent huge fortunes on the results and were probably disappointed when Maui passed their anti-GMO farming ban.

Martin talks about his client who was suffering from stress due to her job. She had gone to her doctor for medication to deal with the stress. She sounded like she had a stroke.

in the two states, please get involved: On November 4, two mandatory GMO food labeling ballot initiatives: Measure 92 in Oregon and Initiative 105 in Colorado will be decided. It is no exaggeration to say that these two ballot initiatives will determine the fate of food in America. Despite the fact that the Gene Giants (Monsanto Dupont, Dow, Syngenta, BASF, and Bayer), backed by the world’s largest junk food manufactures (Coca Cola, Pepsi, Kraft, General Mills, Kellogg’s), have spent over $30 million to mislead and confuse voters in these two states, latest indications are that voters in at least one state, Oregon, will vote for mandatory labeling, while voters in Colorado (where the Yes on GMO labeling forces have been outspent 25-to-1) may still pull off the most amazing longshot victory of 2014.

The multiple award-winning Real Scientific Hemp Oil (RSHO) contains the highest quality natural hemp-based CBD found anywhere. No fillers, preservatives or additives - ever.

CBD is a compound in the hemp/marijuana plant that has medicinal effects, but does not make people feel "high" and actually counteracts some of the effects tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) creates.

Cannabinoids are found to have a very broad impact on cellular function, including anxiety and depression alleviating effects, as well as well documented positive impact on cancer.

If you have been seeking a convenient, everyday CBD-rich hemp oil supplement option, then HempMeds is a natural place to start.

          De la passion du Thé...   




On m'a posé la question il n'y a pas longtemps "pourquoi le thé ?" dans le sens, parmi toutes les passions possibles et imaginables, pourquoi celle-ci et pas une autre. Curieusement, même si j'avais déjà réfléchi à la question, ça m'a fait cogiter un peu. Je me suis par le passé intéressé à pas mal de choses, mais j'ai finalement toujours plus ou moins vite enchainé après avoir en eu un aperçu, à tel point que je me suis demandé à un moment donné si je n'allais pas passer ma vie à toucher un peu à tout. Y a pire. Mais au final, aucune passion n'aura tenu aussi longtemps que le Thé, et elle m'est tombée dessus (comme pour les céramiques d'ailleurs) sans crier gare. Qui aurait pu deviner il y a encore dix ans que je me hâterai dans des musées pour voir des vases chinois anciens, et que je dépenserai de telles sommes dans des feuilles séchées ? Pas moi en tout cas...


Alors qu'est-ce qui m'attire dans le thé plus que dans d'autres choses, et qu'est ce qui fait que ça tient ? Deux choses. Déjà, je pense que ce pourquoi je ne raccroche pas, c'est que je n'ai jamais eu le sentiment d'avoir à peu près compris les choses. C'est un monde tellement riche, sur tellement de niveaux. Il y a toujours quelque chose à découvrir, que ce soit dans les variétés de thé, les méthodes de fabrication, de culture, la tradition liée à tout ça, etc, que j'ai l'impression que je passerai ma vie à découvrir.

Découvrir. Tout ceci me fait penser à un débat qu'on retrouve souvent chez les amateurs de thé (entre autres) : le stockage ou l'échantillonnage. En gros, deux pratiques différentes, deux buts différents : "la soif de découverte", ma catégorie, ne jamais trop se fixer, toujours vouloir découvrir un nouveau thé, une nouvelle sélection voire un nouveau sélectionneur, un nouveau millésime, ce qui signifie ne jamais trop investir dans de grandes quantités, mais plutôt de papillonner d'échantillon en échantillon ; et "la technique de l'écureuil" qui consiste à chercher le truc qui plait pour en acheter des kilos, s'asseoir dessus et fermer boutique. Je ne sais si je glisserai un jour dans cette dernière catégorie, mais en tout cas elle ne m'attire pas du tout pour l'instant. Bien sûr, il m'arrive d'acheter une plus grande quantité d'un thé, par exemple une galette pour la postérité. Il y a la pression de la montée des prix des millésimes existants et de ceux à venir. La curiosité de voir comment ça va évoluer évidemment. Et puis, c'est bien d'avoir des valeurs sures en stock... Mais peut-être que je suis bêtement le mouvement initié par d'autres, non pas qu'il soit idiot, mais juste qu'il ne me correspond pas/moins. Pas étonnant du coup que je me retrouve souvent abonné aux vendeurs qui proposent des échantillons ou de petites quantités. Acheter une galette sans l'avoir goutée est quelque chose que je ne compte plus faire de si tôt. Ça fait deux années que je commande les échantillons de puerh d'Eugene par exemple, l'année dernière j'ai acheté une galette, pas cette année. Ça me suffit, non pas que les thés ne soient pas bons, mais j'ai beaucoup appris et c'est le but.

Bref, "la soif de découverte". Et n'en voyant pas le bout, ben je continue, encore et encore, toujours avec un plaisir intact. Il faut dire que le monde du thé ne se limite pas aux feuilles. Il y a bien évidemment les ustensiles. Je pense pouvoir affirmer sans trop de problèmes que certains amateurs préfèrent ces derniers aux feuilles en elles-mêmes. Ce n'est pas une critique mais c'est pour illustrer la richesse de ce monde : théières bien sûr, terre ou porcelaine, tasses, bols, bouilloires, et ça n'en finit pas.

Mais s'intéresser au thé, c'est aussi voyager, découvrir d'autres cultures, avec des histoires et des religions différentes. Chine, Japon, Corée, Inde... Comment ne pas se passionner pour l'Asie au passage ? Son histoire. Ses trésors

L'agriculture aussi. Plus terre à terre, ah ah. Mais c'est intéressant les différents modes de cultures, le bio, le "natural farming", les nouveaux procédés, les anciens. L'influence de l'altitude, de la géologie. La chimie aussi. Pour sûr, être curieux à propos du thé fait s'intéresser à beaucoup de choses.

Plus que tout, les personnes, les rencontres, réelles et virtuelles, sont une des principales raisons qui ne me donne pas envie d'arrêter de si tôt, que ce soit les rencontres déjà faites ou à venir. Passionné(e)s, professionnels ou particuliers, artistes, tant de personnes intéressantes et pour la plupart hautement sympathiques. Le thé c'est aussi la vision que chaque personne en a, et c'est pour ça que c'est un monde si riche.



Mais, dans ma pratique, il y a aussi la progression. Et c'est certainement le plus important à mes yeux. Alors la progression de quoi, et vers quoi ? En voilà de bonnes questions. Je dirais la progression sensorielle déjà, dans un sens large. Discerner la qualité sous toutes ses formes et affiner ses perceptions qu'elles soient organoleptiques ou plus profondes (Qi). Pas de secret pour cela, il faut boire (des savates et des grands crus) et comparer. Je ne pense pas que ce soit quelque chose qu'on puisse faire seul. Il faut être guidé un minimum. Et apprendre la qualité auprès d'une personne, d'une vision ne suffit pas à mes yeux. Mais ce n'est pas le sujet, bien qu'il soit intéressant. Le but est aussi de développer sa sensibilité aux choses. Et cela transcende encore une fois les barrières du thé. On découvre que les goûts et le palais changent, que derrière l'amertume se cachent de belles choses. Dit autrement, que derrière ce qu'on est conditionné à trouver amer, il y a un nouveau monde plein de beauté et de subtilités. 

Progresser vers quoi ? Voilà tout l'intérêt. Car dans cette philosophie asiatique que j'apprécie tant, dans cette Voie martiale, l'intérêt n'est pas la finalité, mais le chemin. Le but n'est pas d'atteindre une compréhension de son vivant, de décrocher la médaille d'or. Le but ultime est inatteignable, ça fait partie du contrat. Et ce n'est pas l'important de toute façon. Voilà quelque chose de bouleversant au sens premier du terme, qui rompt directement avec la vision occidentale que j'avais de beaucoup de choses. Ce n'est pas une activité que je fais dans un but précis, pas pour décrocher un niveau, le plus haut, mais juste pour progresser, pour l'enrichissement personnel. Car dans ce genre de progression, il n'y a pas que le palais et les yeux qui évoluent. C'est toute la sensibilité des choses qui est susceptible de bouger. On peut faire le parallèle entre le Thé et bien d'autres choses. C'est une de ses grandes forces !

À cela, je rajouterais que le thé apprend l'humilité, du moins devrait. Ma très jeune voie est jonchée de bouleversements, de révolutions. Chaque fois que je m'installe dans une pratique, que j'ai l'impression que des règles se dessinent, bam ! C'est la claque. Je découvre que les choses sont loin d'être aussi simples. Je pense sincèrement que le Thé est une discipline où il faut rester humble car on apprend toute sa vie, et on se rend compte qu'à un moment donné, alors qu'on était persuadé d'avoir une bonne compréhension de certaines choses, en fait, la réalité est beaucoup plus subtile. Ce n'est pas propre au Thé bien entendu. De plus, il y aura toujours quelqu'un d'autre qui aura une vision et/ou une pratique très différente de la sienne, qui suivra sa voie, qui ne sera ni meilleure ni moins bien.

Il n'y a pas de vérité finie dans le Thé. On ne l'enferme pas dans un tableau, dans des critères, dans un "c'est comme ça (et pas autrement)". Et c'est tant mieux. Le thé est comme un film de Kubrick qu'on peut revoir 100 fois à des moments différents de sa vie et découvrir, ressentir, comprendre des choses nouvelles à chaque fois. Est-ce le thé qui change ? Est-ce nous qui changeons ? Est-il différent pour chacun d'entre nous ? Qui sait ? Le but est peut-être justement d'embrasser cette Voie où on se remettra toujours en question, où on se prendra de toute façon des baffes à un moment ou un autre quand on aura l'impression d'avoir saisi le truc. On tombera, mais on se relèvera enrichi. Mais on ne pourra jamais dire "c'est comme ça et pas autrement". Bien sûr il y a des écueils à éviter. La préparation du thé est technique, comme un mouvement de sabre ou de pinceau qu'il convient d'avoir le patience de répéter des centaines voire des milliers de fois.



Moi qui ai toujours aimé faire le tour des choses, aimé avoir une approche manichéenne, globale, je suis incapable de me dégager de cette passion "infinie". Mais c'est sans effort que je continue... Progresser donc sans cesse, travailler sur soi, se remettre en cause. J'entendais récemment un Japonais qui prend des cours de cérémonie du thé depuis plus de 15 ans auprès d'un vieux maître de plus de 70 ans raconter que ce dernier continuait lui aussi à prendre des cours. Ça fait réfléchir... Le but n'est pas d'atteindre la perfection, mais de s'entrainer, progresser encore et toujours.


Till next time.

          Capture Your Grief- Day 16   
Day 16--Retreat

I did exactly that today.  I took my dear husband and we spent the day together.

And now?  I want that every day.  It's been 15 months since we said good-bye to Kale.  And today when we were expecting exciting news we once again received an announcement that a sweet little baby I've been carrying for the past 20 weeks has Potter's Syndrome.

We're doing this again.  We're walking this road of grief and pain all over again.  Only this time we're already carrying a boulder of grief with us down this road.  I can't even put into words the emotions I'm feeling right now, the pain my heart feels.  My brain can't even wrap around the concept.  It's not real, it's a horrible nightmare, a joke someone thought would be humorous.

Shock would be a good way to describe it.  I'm in complete shock.  My thoughts are unfocused, but I need to talk.  Lightning striking our family twice.  The odds...it's unbelievable.  We saw the perinatologist that we saw with Kale, and she was just as shocked as us.  No kidneys, no bladder, no stomach.  It's a 1 in 100,000,000 chance of it happening twice.  Unless there's a genetic link, which apparently there is.  We speculated before, but were always reassured that it was a fluke.  However, now at this point, it's no longer a fluke.  Both myself and Matt probably have some sort of recessive gene that when put together causes this.  There are about 14 different types of 'genetic variations' that could cause this.  And those variations?  They raise our odds in having a Potter's baby to 1 in 4. Twentyfive freaking percent.  The fact that we have two happy, relative healthy children is amazing, as odds are generally NOT in our favor.

I'm getting side-tracked.  There are many details that really don't matter, as they don't change the situation any.  The point is, we are having a second baby with Potter's Syndrome.  Unfortunately we have walked this exact path before, we know the steps that need to be taken.  We know what we would change, and we know the final outcome.  We know any time we get to spend with our sweet baby is through the grace of God being willing to give it to us.  We know that our dear child could pass away at any moment.  There is only so much room in there and with the added complication of a cord possibly being laid on, the risk is great.

And while progress is slowly being made in regards to treatment for Potter's, and there is a miracle baby out there, we aren't fortunate enough to receive such treatment.  Our precious child is missing more than kidney's, which makes the treatment (a saline solution to help lungs develop, and then hope for dialysis until a kidney transplant is available) impossible.

Our hearts are broken.  I don't think it matters at what age you loose a child, every dream you imagined for them, being stolen away so quickly and replaced with heartache is unbearable.

So here we are again.  Preparing for a baby that we don't get to keep with us.  Katryn's response broke our hearts: "Dang it.  I wanted a sister".  And I wanted to give her a sister.  Martin doesn't understand yet, but he understands that Kale is in heaven and so I think he'll grasp this quick enough. Having done this before, we can anticipate this baby being born around Christmas time, about 2 and 1/2 months early.

And so we're retreating.  We're taking steps to protect our hearts right now, as they are VERY fragile.  We're drawing our family in closer than before and cutting out the excess as needed.  We know that God has a reason for these babies to be called back to Him so quickly, and I wish we could know the reason too.  I've said it before, and I'll keep saying it.  Going by faith alone is HARD.

And there it is.  Potter's Syndrome take two in our house.  Preparing to bury another child, to have to say goodbye too soon, to have to deal with 50% of my children not being here with me.  It's a heart-ache I can't even begin to describe.
          Top 10 Ways ObamaCare Sticks It to Young Adults   

Top 10 Ways ObamaCare Sticks It to Young Adults

Top Ten Ways ObamaCare Sticks It to Young Adults

    By Dean Clancy

[Note: a .pdf version of this post can be found at the bottom of this page]

ObamaCare should really be called the Unaffordable Care Act, especially when it comes to adults in their twenties and thirties. ObamaCare’s “individual mandate,” which takes full effect on January 1, 2014, requires all Americans to purchase expensive government-controlled health insurance, even if they don’t want or need it. (1)  The defenders of this mandate, and especially the health insurance lobby, claim a mandate on all of us is necessary to “help the uninsured.”

In fact, the mandate’s real purpose is to prevent the system’s new government-run “health exchanges” from collapsing. Young adults are being singled out as the group who will have to bear the brunt of preventing this collapse. They’re being asked to sacrifice their dollars and their freedom.

Eighty percent of 20-somethings who earn more than about $18,500 a year will see their health insurance costs go up as a result of ObamaCare. In California, the cost of a basic plan for a 25-year-old male will jump as much as 92 percent, in Ohio as much as 700 percent! Meanwhile, the Administration is enforcing ObamaCare selectively, having granted more than 1,200 waivers to politically connected labor unions and corporations over the past three years, and more recently exempting all large businesses.

In short, ObamaCare is unfair, unnecessary, and harmful to our health. No wonder it’s so unpopular, even before it has been fully implemented. We call on all Americans, and especially millennials, to “burn their ObamaCare card,” join the “health care draft resistance” movement, and help us hasten the replacement of government-centered care with patient-centered care.

Here are the top ten ways ObamaCare sticks it to young adults:

1.    Raises insurance costs for adults under 40 (on purpose)
2.    Reduces access to workplace health insurance
3.    Shrinks workplace health benefits
4.    Reduces work-hours
5.    Kills jobs
6.    Increases debt
7.    Raises taxes
8.    Is unfair
9.    Is unnecessary
10.  Is insulting

1.    Raises insurance costs for adults under 40 (on purpose)

ObamaCare sticks it to young adults by driving up their health insurance costs. On purpose. That’s right, the law is designed to drive up costs for people in their twenties and thirties, in order to keep the new ObamaCare exchanges from collapsing.

Unless a lot of young, healthy people sign up to pay for insurance through the government exchange,  premiums will spiral upward as too many old and sick people sign up, which will cause the system to collapse. Thanks to ObamaCare’s numerous mandates, the health insurance in most cases will cost more than it’s actually worth, especially for young adults. Hence the need for a mandate requiring people to pay into the system. The young are, in effect, being drafted into compulsory national service.

How does ObamaCare drive up rates? Primarily by forcing insurance companies to accept all applicants, regardless of age or health status (“guaranteed issue”) and by forcing them to charge all applicants roughly the same price (“community rating”). These mandates make insurance more expensive, especially for healthier folks, some of whom naturally respond to the higher expense by becoming uninsured -- the opposite of the law’s alleged goal. Younger people tend to be healthier. That’s why they also tend to be uninsured -- the high cost isn’t worth it for them, relative to the benefit. The largest negative effects of guaranteed issue and community thus fall on younger people.

ObamaCare imposes a host of other mandates. One is to make insurers cover adults up to age 26 on their parents’ policy. That sounds nice, until we realize that it costs each of us an additional $100 to $400 a year on our health insurance premiums. (And by the way, since when it a 26-year-old a child?) Another mandate requires insurance companies to cover all services deemed by the government to be “preventative,” including “reproductive health services,” “free of charge.” That too sounds great, until we remember that there’s no free lunch. Mandates raise prices. Period.

How much will premiums rise for folks under 40? (2)

  • Almost 80 percent of those aged 21 to 29 with incomes greater than 138 percent of the federal poverty level, or about $18,560 a year, can expect to pay more out of pocket for coverage than they pay today. Younger, healthier individuals can expect premiums to increase by more than 40 percent. (3)  
  • In Ohio the cost of a basic plan for a healthy 25-year-old male will jump by nearly 700 percent, from $355.44 a year ($29.62 a month) in 2013 to $2,383.68 a year ($198.64 a month) in 2014. (4)
  • In California the cost of a basic plan for a healthy 25-year-old male will jump by 92 percent, from $1,212 a year ($101 a month) in 2013 to $2,196 a year ($183 a month) in 2014. (5)

The uninsured (two out of three of whom are under 40) have average annual health care expenditures of around $800 to $1,200. Since health insurance will cost a good deal more than that, they have an incentive to be uninsured. They need low-cost, economical coverage. ObamaCare gives them the opposite. (6)

By the way, premiums will only go down for older folks if young adults voluntarily swallow ObamaCare’s big rate hikes. If young adults opt instead to take a pass on the insurance and just pay the law’s $95 tax penalty “user fee,” rates will go up for older folks. (7)

You can’t defy the laws of economics. If we want to get more Americans insured, we have to enable insurance to cost less. ObamaCare makes it cost more, for the majority of Americans, and especially for young adults

2.   Reduces access to workplace health insurance

ObamaCare sticks it to young adults by incentivizing many employers to stop offering health benefits. When an employer stops offering health benefits, workers must either: a) rely on a relative’s health insurance; b) go into the ObamaCare “health exchange,” b) enroll in Medicaid or other government program for which they may be eligible, or c) join the ranks of the uninsured. Younger workers will often find themselves in the last category: uninsured.

About 156 million Americans (roughly half the U.S. population) get their health insurance through the workplace. Credible experts predict ObamaCare will cause anywhere from 7 million to 35 million Americans to lose their workplace health benefits over the next few years.

  • The official Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimate projects that between 2014 and 2019 anywhere from 7 million to 20 million Americans will be “dumped” by their employers from their workplace health plan. (8)
  • A former head of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is more pessimistic, estimating that Obamacare “provides strong incentives for employers—with the agreement of their employees—to drop employer-sponsored health insurance for as many as 35 million Americans.” (9)

Wait. Would employers really do that? Would they really drop coverage? Yes, it seems, they would:

  • Thirty percent of employers tell surveyors they’ll “definitely” or “probably” stop offering employer-sponsored insurance in the years after 2014. (10)
  • One recent survey found 9 percent of employers “expect” to stop offering health benefits in the next few years (which would affect about 3 percent of the workforce, or about 5 million workers). (11)


Most of this “employer dumping” will occur among small businesses. That will disproportionately affect adults under 40. (12)

3.    Shrinks workplace health benefits
ObamaCare sticks it to young adults by incentivizing employers to offer stingier workplace benefits. Those employers who choose to offer health benefits will be under pressure to try to save money by making the benefits “thinner.” We already have reports of some employers switching to “skinny” plans, which are plans that don’t cover certain items, such as hospital stays. (13)  Yes, “skinny” plans are allowed under the statute. (14)

4.    Reduces work-hours
ObamaCare sticks it to young adults by causing employers to cut back on workers’ hours. (15)  The law’s “employer mandate” requires all employers with 50 or more full-time employees, beginning January 1, 2014, to offer expensive, government-regulated health insurance. (16) “Full time” is defined under the law as 30 or more hours a week. (The average American works about 32 hours a week.) So unsurprisingly, many firms are reducing workers’ hours to 29 hours or below, in order to avoid the expense. According to the Los Angeles Times:

[B]ig restaurant chains, retailers and movie theaters are starting to trim employee hours. Even colleges are reducing courses for part-time professors to keep     their hours down and avoid paying for their health premiums. Overall, an estimated 2.3 million workers nationwide, including 240,000 in California, are at risk of losing hours as employers adjust to the new math of workplace benefits. (17)

5.    Kills jobs
ObamaCare sticks it to young adults by causing employers to eliminate jobs, especially low-end, minimum wage positions. ObamaCare is causing a hiring slowdown. Part of the problem is uncertainty: employers are afraid to hire because they still don’t know how exactly the extremely complicated law will be enforced. But the bulk of the problem is the employer mandate itself: firms are avoiding new hires to avoid hiring that incredibly costly 50th employee. A health insurance plan can cost anywhere from $8,000 to $20,000 a year. The law says that if you offer coverage, it must be “affordable,” as defined by the government. That means you, the employer, must pay for roughly 92 percent of the plan’s cost. Many small firms simply can’t afford that. Right now, unemployment among Americans under 24 is a staggering 16.2 percent, and thanks to our economy’s anemic 2 percent a year growth rate, these Americans’ employment prospects are dismal. The ObamaCare-induced hiring slowdown only makes this problem worse, disproportionately affecting entry- and lower-level positions and thus younger adults trying to get their start in life.

6.    Increases debt
ObamaCare sticks it to young adults by driving up the national debt. The national debt has recently soared above $16,000,000,000,000 (sixteen trillion dollars), an historic high. Uncle Sam has additionally racked up nearly $100,000,000,000,000 (one hundred trillion dollars) in future, unfunded promises. That mountain of debt must be paid back by current and future generations. The cost of the law’s coverage provisions alone, over the first ten years of full implementation (2014 to 2023), is around $2,400,000,000,000 (two trillion four hundred billion dollars). The law will likely drive the deficit up by more than $700,000,000,000 (seven hundred billion dollars). (18) The problem boils down to basic math. As one analyst has summed up the problem:

Health spending now averages about 21 percent of households' personal income ... [but the] health care legislation presumes that those in an exchange shouldn't have to pay more than 10 percent of their income for a health insurance policy. (19)

That means someone is going to have to subsidize people who get their coverage through an exchange. Who is going to be on the hook for that subsidy? Current and future taxpayers, of course. How will it be paid for? Mostly through borrowing. (Uncle Sam currently borrows more than one-third of every dollar he spends.) So now young adults, who already carry historically high levels of student-loan debt, will have to help pay for the massive ObamaCare debt as well. (20)  How thoughtful.

7.    Raises taxes
ObamaCare sticks it to young adults by increasing taxes. ObamaCare imposes eighteen new taxes, including an expensive tax on medical devices and the first-ever tax on workplace health benefits -- even a new tax on the sale of your home. Those new taxes are projected to bring in a total of $514,000,000,000 (five hundred fourteen billion dollars) in additional federal revenues over ten years.
    ObamaCare’s 18 New Taxes

  1. Individual mandate tax on individuals who do not purchase health insurance.
  2. Employer mandate tax on employers who do not offer “acceptable” health coverage to their employees.
  3. Annual fee on health insurance providers based on each company’s share of the total market.
  4. Medical expense deduction is limited to those with expenses above 10% of adjusted gross income, up from previous 7.5%.
  5. 2.3% excise tax on manufacturers and importers of certain medical devices.
  6. 10% excise tax on indoor tanning services.
  7. Fee on manufacturers and importers of branded drugs, based on each individual company’s share of the total market.
  8. Increased Medicare portion of FICA payroll tax, rising to 3.8% from previous 2.9%, on couples earning more than $250,000 a year ($200,000 for     single filers); increased tax is also applied to investment income for the first time.
  9. Increased penalty for purchasing over-the-counter products with HSAs to 20%.
  10. Reduction in the number of medical products taxpayers can purchase using funds they put aside in HSAs and FSAs.
  11. Limit on the amount taxpayers can deposit in flexible spending accounts (FSAs) to $2,500 a year.
  12. Fee on insured and self-insured health plans to fund PCORI agency.
  13. Elimination of the corporate deduction for prescription expenses for retirees.
  14. Increase in taxes on health insurance companies, by limiting the amount of compensation paid to certain employees they can deduct from their taxes.
  15. End of special deduction for Blue Cross / Blue Shield organizations.
  16. 40% excise tax on “Cadillac” health insurance plans costing more than $10,200 for individuals and $27,500 for families (begins in 2018).
  17. Exclusion of unprocessed fuels from the existing cellulosic biofuel producer credit.
  18. Increase in corporate taxes by making it more difficult for businesses to engage in activities that reduce their tax liability.

8.    Is unfair
ObamaCare institutes basic intergenerational unfairness. Sixty-four-year-olds typically spend six times as much on health care as 18-year-olds. Logically, their health insurance rate should be six times higher. But ObamaCare says insurers can charge older folks no more than three times what it charges a young person. This 3:1 community rating forces millennials to pay about 75 percent too much for insurance, so folks in their early 60s can underpay by about 13 percent. Nice! (21)

9.    Is unnecessary
The tragedy of ObamaCare is that it isn’t even necessary. There are less coercive, less expensive ways to help the uninsured. Here are some simple ways to reduce health care costs and thus increase the number of insured people, without costly government mandates or price controls:

  1. Promote competition by passing a federal “health care freedom act” that makes participation in all federal health care programs completely voluntary for individuals.
  2. Permit individuals to deduct 100 percent of their medical expenses from their taxes.
  3. Allow people to buy health insurance across state lines.
  4. Allow everyone, including folks on Medicare and Medicaid, to have a Health Savings Account (HSA) (a pre-tax savings account for medical expenses coupled with a high-deductible health insurance plan).
  5. Provide targeted assistance, via the states, for the one percent of Americans who can’t afford good private health insurance because of a preexisting medical condition.
  6. Encourage states to reform their medical malpractice tort laws to reduce costs. (22) 

This robust agenda would benefit young adults and indeed all Americans by promoting patient power in the health care marketplace. It would help lower the excessive cost of health care, which is the real problem, by reducing meddlesome government mandates, which are the real culprit.

10.     Is insulting
ObamaCare insults young people’s intelligence by trying to make them believe they are benefiting from a policy that actually targets them for the biggest pain.

P.S. There’s an eleventh reason ObamaCare sticks it to young adults: its inevitable negative effects on the quality and availability of medical care. With the new system’s top-down, centralized approach, there will be higher costs, longer wait times, and incentives for doctors and hospitals to scrimp on care.

Conclusion: Burn Your ObamaCare Card!

ObamaCare was rammed through Congress in the name of “helping the uninsured.” What it really does is hurt the young. Two-thirds of the uninsured today are in their twenties and thirties. Most of the uninsured make a rational choice to go without insurance because government policies have made it too expensive, relative to its value for them.

The individual mandate, ObamaCare’s linchpin, will hit young adults the hardest. Eighty percent of 20-somethings who earn more than about $18,500 a year will see their health insurance costs go up as a result of ObamaCare. In California, the cost of a basic plan for a 25-year-old male will jump as much as 92 percent, in Ohio as much as 700 percent! The individual mandate, ObamaCare’s linchpin, is unjust, unnecessary and harmful to our health.

Millennials would be better off “burning their ObamaCare card” and resisting the “health care draft.” We call on Americans who can do so to “opt out” of the ObamaCare mandate and instead pay the small penalty tax “user fee” for being uninsured (or for not having ObamaCare-compliant coverage). (23)  If enough Americans join the resistance movement, we can hasten the collapse of the exchanges, reverse the Washington takeover, and pave the way for a health care system that works for, rather than against, patients. (24)

End Notes
1. Tens of millions of Americans are statutorily exempted from the individual mandate, including prisoners, illegal immigrants, certain religious sects, Native Americans, Americans living overseas, Americans who don't have to file a tax return, Americans whose employer offers them coverage that would cost them more than 8 percent of their income, and any American granted "hardship" status at the discretion of the Health and Human Services secretary.

5. Avik Roy, “The War On Bros: Exchange Subsidies Won't Protect Young People From Obamacare's Higher Insurance Premiums,” Forbes, June 7, 2013,  http://www.forbes.com/sites/theapothecary/2013/06/07/the-war-on-bros-exc...

6.   ObamaCare supporters try to downplay “rate shock” figures like these, by noting that costs will go down for some older folks. True. But how much comfort is it for a millennial faced with a 92 percent premium increase to know that his 64-year-old neighbor will enjoy a 10 percent decrease? Supporters of the law also say that folks earning up to about $45,000 a year will get a relatively generous subsidy, on a sliding scale, to help them afford the premiums (courtesy of the taxpayer), if they buy coverage in the government exchange. Also true. But that taxpayer subsidy is only available to people whose employer doesn’t offer “affordable” coverage, as defined by the government (and whose state doesn’t offer Medicaid to people earning more than 100 percent of poverty). It’s hard for anyone to know for sure whether he qualifies for the subsidy and will remain qualified for it, since third parties (employers, state policy makers) are the ones making the critical decisions affecting his eligibility.

7. Here is now the individual mandate penalty works. The IRS will levy penalties on individuals who don’t buy government-approved insurance. The annual fines will equal the greater of $95 per adult or 1 percent of income (in 2014); $325 or 2 percent (in 2015), $695 or 2.5 percent (in 2016); and then will rise with inflation. The fine for uninsured children equals one-half the adult fine. Additionally, many people are exempted from the mandate, such as those for whom premiums exceed 8 percent of household income. Hence, as premiums increase, more and more people will be exempted from the mandate.

12. Some workers will lose what the law deems to be “affordable” benefits, as their employers offer “unaffordable” plans intentionally, knowing that doing so will drive their lower-income workers to look outside the firm for health coverage, which will save the employer money (because paying a $3,000 federal penalty fine is cheaper than paying for a $8,000 to $20,000 insurance policy). Some economists predict that we may see a lot of firms restructure themselves into two “sister firms”: one for higher-wage workers who will continue to enjoy company health benefits, and one for lower-wage workers who will be “dumped” into the government exchange. In other words, lower-income workers will get the short end. And guess which age group will be hardest hit by that? Yep, young adults.

15.  The employer mandate will take effect on January 1, 2014. In July 2013, the Obama Administration surprised everyone by announcing it was unilaterally cancelling the mandate for a year, pushing the effective date back to January 1, 2015. While this cancellation is illegal, so long as the mandate is only delayed temporarily the incentives for employers to cut back on hours and hiring will remain essentially unchanged. The one-year delay will probably cause more employers to “dump” their workers into government health exchanges in 2014 than would otherwise have been the case. This, we suspect, is exactly what the Administration intends.

16. Here is now the employer mandate penalty works. The IRS will level a tax penalty on businesses with more than 50 full-time employees who fail to offer health coverage. The fine is $2,000 per employee after the first 30 employees. Employers will also be fined for failing to offer “affordable” coverage, as defined by the law. The fine is $3,000 per employee if coverage costs more than 8.5 percent of that worker’s income.

20. ObamaCare supporters protest that the law “doesn’t add a dime to the deficit,” citing the official CBO cost estimates for the legislation. But that claim doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. The law only appears “deficit neutral” on paper, because of massive budget gimmicks like these. In reality, ObamaCare will cost taxpayers dearly, with younger taxpayers getting hit the hardest. The law includes $700 billion in ten-year Medicare reductions (to help pay for the new entitlement) that the Chief Actuary of the Medicare program assumes are unlikely to take effect, because they would cause 15 percent of hospitals to go out of business by 2019. (Source: CMS Chief Actuary Richard S. Foster, Memorandum on Estimated Financial Effects of the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” as Amended,  April 22, 2010, http://www.cms.gov/Research-Statistics-Data-and-Systems/Research/Actuari....) Members of Congress will never voluntarily allow large numbers of hospitals in their districts to go out of business. They will move to provide federal relief. And the relief will most likely come in the form of reversing the Medicare payment reductions. The Chief Actuary also points out that the law assumes a series of deep, automatic, annual reductions in Medicare payments to doctors that Congress has historically never allowed to take place.

23. For many people, especially younger citizens, it will be more financially sensible to just pay the fine than to buy overpriced health coverage. The fine is small (only $95, or 1 percent of one’s income, whichever is higher, in 2014). If you refuse or neglect to pay the fine on your yearly tax return, the statute prevents the IRS from punishing you, other than by withholding any tax refund you are owed. So you could theoretically sidestep any penalty whatsoever by adjusting your income tax withholdings to avoid being owed a refund.

          #100: Alles Große und Entscheidende im Leben ist ein Wagnis   

Heute geht die Folge 100 meines Podcast “on air”! Grund genug für ein paar Veränderungen.

Am 15. Januar 2013 ging die erste Folge live. Seither gab’s mich (und viele Interview-Gäste) regelmäßig zu hören.

Ein Meilenstein ist immer eine gute Gelegenheit zu überlegen, wie es weitergehen soll.

Genau das habe ich auch für meinen Podcast gemacht. Hier das Ergebnis:

  1. Der Podcast erscheint weiterhin wöchentlich.
  2. Der Podcast wird wieder eigenständig. Habe ich in den letzten 35 Folgen einfach einen Blogartikel “vorgelesen”, gibt es jetzt wieder eigene Inhalte nur für den Podcast.

Jeden Monat erscheinen also 4 neue Folgen:

  • Ein Interview: Einmal pro Monat gibt es ein Interview mit einer inspirierenden Person. Nicht nur rund um Zeitmanagement, sondern mein Ziel ist, faszinierende Menschen zu Wort kommen zu lassen, die auch etwas zu sagen haben. Ich möchte sie aus ihrem Alltag und von ihrem Business erzählen lassen.
  • Zwei “normale” Folgen: Ich erzähle dir etwas rund um Zeitmanagement. Ich werde dabei vermehrt aus dem Alltag eines Produktivitätstrainers berichten und was man daraus für Lehren ziehen kann.
  • Ein Gespräch mit meinem Co-Gastgeber: Das hier ist neu und großartig: Einmal pro Monat begrüsse ich nämlich einen Co-Gastgeber in meinem Podcast. Ich werde mich mit ihm über ein Thema rund um Zeitmanagement unterhalten. Kein Interview, sondern ein Gespräch zwischen zwei Solopreneuren, die was zu sagen haben – hoffentlich. :-)

Dieser Co-Gastgeber ist aber nicht irgendwer. Sondern ich konnte meinen Freund Bernd Geropp dafür gewinnen. Ich freue mich wahnsinnig darauf und wir sind beide gespannt, wie sich das entwickeln wird.

Damit du Bernd Geropp kennenlernen kannst, habe ich ihn für diese heutige Folge zum Interview eingeladen. Viel Spaß damit!

          WATCH: What Are GMO Labels?   
There’s a heated debate happening right now about GMOs and labels. Big food companies like General Mills, Mars and Kellogg’s say they plan to put labels on their products that tell consumers whether or not the food contains ingredients derived from genetically engineered plants. So what’s the big deal? What are GMO labels, and what do they tell you? Watch the video below to get the full scoop on GMO labels. Here are three things you should know: 1. Think processed food GMO stands for genetically modified organisms. GMO labels would be slapped on food that contains ingredients made from plants that were genetically engineered. Many processed foods contain corn syrup, soybean, canola or cottonseed oil. Most of those crops grown in the U.S. are genetically engineered. Scientists can insert a gene into a variety of corn, for instance, to make it immune to a weedkiller, so when farmers spray their fields the weeds die but the corn doesn’t. 2.

Oregon wide receiver Darren Carrington has been indefinitely suspended from the team following a Saturday morning DUI arrest.

Per the Oregonian, Eugene police said Carrington had a run-in with the drive-thru lane at a McDonald’s.

Carrington was arrested at 3:15 a.m. Saturday after allegedly colliding with a drive-through at a McDonald’s at 659 E. Broadway near downtown Eugene, according to Eugene police spokeswoman Melinda McLaughlin.

Carrington was booked into Lane County jail at 5:28 a.m. and left at approximately 6:30 a.m. after bail of $590 was posted on his behalf, according to jail officials.

Oregon coach Willie Taggart said Carrington was suspended from the team indefinitely following his arrest, though the wide receiver left a message with a photo on his Instagram page that said he would miss his “brothers.”

Thanks for everything I'll truly miss my brothers love y'all 1DEEP OFFTGEGRID✌

A post shared by Darren Carrington II (@1deepdc) on Jul 1, 2017 at 9:51am PDT

This isn’t Carrington’s first suspension while at Oregon. He was suspended for the Ducks’ College Football Playoff Championship Game loss to Ohio State in 2015 after he failed a drug test. He was also accused of pushing a man and breaking the man’s arm in October of 2016 while dressed up as the Joker from Batman.

After the alleged pushing incident, then-Oregon offensive coordinator Matt Lubick said the team was handling Carrington’s discipline “internally.”

Carrington was one of Oregon’s best receivers in 2016. He had 43 catches for 606 yards and five touchdowns. His 606 yards led the team and he was second on the team in catches. He’s set to be a senior in 2017.

          Many Poaching Cases Go Unreported   
A recently killed deer in South Eugene is a reminder many poaching crimes go unreported, and police rely on the public's help to catch illegal animal killings. In the early hours on the morning of November 15 th , residents awoke to shots being fired and some observed a vehicle driving away from a fallen black-tailed buck. Oregon State's Fish and Wildlife Trooper Ed Imholt is glad residents called in the crime, but he says many times instances like this go unreported. Imholt: "We don't hear about it a lot because the public doesn't: A, either think it's illegal, or B, they don't want to report it. Either they get in trouble, or they just don't think it's a big issue for us. But if they don't report it, we don't know that it is happening." Imholt says the perpetuators in this case are not only facing poaching charges, but illegal firearm use as well. Imholt encourages people who may have information to call the 'Turn-In-Poacher TIP Line' at 800-425-7888. There is a cash reward for

          Reunion Weekend highlights: Alumni recognized for doing great work   

Reunion Weekend is always a time for alums of any class year to return to campus, catch up with old friends, connect with professors, and celebrate their Gettysburg spirit.

This year’s Reunion Weekend was no different. With the annual Sara Lee/Butter Krust Baking Gettysburg College Golf Classic celebrating its 25th anniversary, the Alumni College providing attendees an opportunity to return to the classroom, and an all-class reception and fireworks show on Saturday evening, there was plenty for our alumni to do.

The weekend—along with Commencement two weekends before—also served as an opportunity to elevate select alumni for accomplishments in particular categories: Distinguished Alumni, Meritorious Service, and Young Alumni Achievement in the areas of Career Development and Service to the College.

“These alumni are shining examples of what we mean when we say that a Gettysburg education sets you up to do great work and lead great lives,” explained Susan Pyron ’83, Associate Vice President for Annual GivingAlumni and Parent Relations. “These awards are the highest ones given by the Alumni Association, and we are proud to recognize these alumni for their accomplishments and service.”

The alums recognized this year join the ranks of other distinguished alumni like Three-Star General and Judge Advocate General Flora Darpino ’83, Executive Director of UNICEF Carol Bellamy ’63, former NAACP president and CEO Bruce Gordon ’68, and founder and Chairman Emeritus of the Conservation Fund Patrick Noonan ’65.

          Could studying deaf horses shed light on treatment in humans?   

Over the years, Chemistry Prof. Koren Lipsett has owned and rescued horses. Today, they are a focus of her research on deafness in humans.

“My research lab focuses on genomic studies so we can understand human disease,” said Lipsett.

Prof. LipsettSo far, Lipsett and her students have looked at blind cats, fibroblast growth factor (hair length) in cattle, and for the past seven years, deafness in horses. They hope by researching these issues and genetic diseases in large mammals, it will help researchers better understand how to treat human genetic disorders, like congenital blindness and deafness.

Suzanne E. DiNello-Schleicher ’10, a biology and chemistry double major who is today a veterinarian, was the inspiration behind the horse project. One day in Lipsett’s lab, she was doing some preliminary research on the Internet and came across a story about a deaf colt.

“Because she’s a horse person and a vet person, she said, ‘maybe we can pursue this,’” said Lipsett. “Well it turns out the family that owned that particular horse also had the parents and siblings in this pedigree of Spanish Mustangs. Not just one offspring was deaf. There were two deaf offspring that came from the same stallion and two different mares. So that started the project.”

Working with larger mammals has its benefits, Lipsett says. For one, large mammals, as opposed to mice and rats, live longer. If, during transitional research, researchers are completing a treatment study, this allows scientists to study long-term implications. It’s humane: Lipsett uses hair plucked from the horse’s mane. It’s convenient: she uses her own horse and horses from the SPCA as experimental controls. She is currently working with a family from Virginia who owned deaf horses with white coats and blue eyes—the phenotype that studies have shown to correlate with deafness in other animals, like the Siberian Husky.

This knowledge helped Lipsett’s lab narrow down their focus to a candidate gene called the KIT gene.

Prof. Lipsett in the lab

“In [other cases of mammals] that had deafness, white pigmentation, and blue eyes, it has come down to the KIT gene,” said Lipsett. “That particular gene is complex, but that’s not the only one that has been found—there are 5 or 6 genes that we identified as candidate genes. And our job is to methodically go through, sequencing those genes, to see if we can find the mutation.”

The process involves examining the gene’s exons, the segments of the DNA that contain the coding information, or set of instructions, that translate to the protein of interest, for example.

Benjamin Gantz ’16 was responsible for examining exon-21 in the KIT gene. They ran into several issues with designing primers, which is the first step to sequencing a gene.

“Ben got to a point where we understood where the problem was, and by the time he graduated we a had a good understanding of what to do next,” said Lipsett.

“Ben would say, ‘wow, I’m doing real science,’ and I’d say, ‘You've been doing real science the whole time!’ Because you need to think outside the box. There’s no canned answer.”

“Many students have worked on this project before me. It was amazing to be able to pick up where they left off and continue this research,” echoed Gantz. “In independent research labs like Dr. Lipsett's, you are determining the answers to questions that no one on the planet knows. Other scientists may use our research to further their own understanding or study, but our findings will be a starting point for them.”

Over the years, several students have worked on pieces of the project that have been published, like Kaytie Innamorati ’14, who is currently conducting research on Alzheimer’s Disease as a Ph.D. candidate at Drexel University. She is listed as a co-author on the abstract, “Determining the genetic basis of equine deafness via candidate gene studies.” Also, Alecia Achimovich ’16, a Ph.D. candidate at The University of Virginia, is a co-author with Kaytie on a recent abstract.

Prof. Koren Lipsett working in the lab

Today, Lipsett says the research is at the point where they have narrowed down which genes to focus on, and now it’s about consolidating the data order to identify a putative gene mutation. As with the blind cat study, the next step will be to explore the mechanism of pathology that will help define how the gene mutation translated to disease symptoms like blindness or deafness.

“We care about this because we can directly correlate it to human studies,” said Lipsett. “The more we understand the gene function in a mammal model, the more likely we can understand the equivalent function in humans. Then, we can apply that knowledge to characterize and potentially treat the genetic disorder.”

A biological career pathway

Lipsett didn’t start working with DNA until she came to Gettysburg. But looking at her journey, the path to that research seemed inevitable.

“I loved biochemistry in college,” she said. “I didn’t do genomics, I did protein studies. It’s related to the biological system, and that’s what’s exciting to me. My work evolved slowly, as in any research career. You don’t necessarily stay in the same track, but your research takes you down new tracks and lets you solve cool new problems.”

Prof. Koren LipsettDuring Lipsett’s postdoctoral research at Johns Hopkins University, she studied metabolic pathways at the genomic level and how specific genes, and the gene products, participate in a given biological pathway. She and her colleagues worked on identifying the gene corresponding to an enzyme involved in the aflatoxin biosynthetic pathway in fungus, furthering their understanding of the pathways in natural product biosynthesis. For example, aflatoxins are a family of carcinogenic toxins that are produced by fungi and can be found contaminating grain and peanuts (peanut butter). Aflatoxin can cause liver cancer. In the United States, we screen our crops for the contaminant, but other countries might not.

“My interest is studying these pathways,” she said. Because nature produces antifungal, anticancer and antibacterial agents, she asks questions like, What structural features of the molecule inhibit growth, and How can we modify and make a better antifungal [agent]?

“By applying knowledge gained from understanding the biosynthetic pathway, and the genes involved in that pathway, one can learn from nature and perhaps make the next new therapeutic drug based on that knowledge,” she said. “Learning from nature is really cool!”

Lipsett describes herself as “jumping” into mitochondrial DNA. Her mitochondrial genomic studies began with looking at genomic variations in mitochondrial DNA, some of which have been identified as causing mitochondrial myopathies.

Plucking Patent

This past January, Lipsett received some exciting news: A letter notifying her that she was issued a United States patent for the “Isolation and Characterization of a Single Mitochondron.”

Lipsett explained that one characteristic of mitochondria is that it contains multiple copies of the mitochondrial genome, and each cell can contain many mitochondria.

“If there is a mutation in one copy of the genome, and there are 100 copies total, the other 99 copies are fine,” she said. “So why should one copy interfere with the cell?” Her questions led to studies to learn more about how that one modified copy becomes the predominant version, and therefore, causative of mitochondrial disease symptoms.

She and her colleagues at the National Institute of Standards and Technology designed a technique using what is described as “optical tweezers” that can trap and then isolate a single mitochodrion using an infrared laser.  

Lipsett decided to apply for the patent after speaking with one of her former research students.

“Christian Bauer ’97, a biochemistry and molecular biology major, went to get his master’s in forensic science,” said Lipsett. Bauer continued his education and became a patent attorney. “He was visiting to speak with students for a career panel, and he said, ‘apply for a patent—that’s intellectual property!’”

Lipsett switched gears and began examining nuclear—as opposed to the mitochondrial—genomic variations. During a sabbatical at the National Cancer Institute in Frederick, her research path transitioned to examining pedigrees of large mammals in order to identify the gene responsible for a specific disease.

“I like learning new tools for finding that needle in the haystack, that Eureka moment,” she said. “We haven’t found it yet in the deafness project, but we’ve gathered enough information from this deaf horse study to think it’s more complex than just one gene.”

          The Neogene genus Streptochilus (Brönnimann and Resig, 1971) from the Gulf of California   

Four species of the planktonic foraminiferal genus Streptochilus from key Neogene marine localities are documented in relation to the evolution of the Gulf of California: S. globigerus, S. latus, S. macdougallae sp. nov., and S. inglei sp. nov. Planktonic foraminiferal bioevents and strontium isotopes in the Bouse, Tirabuzón, Carmen and Ojo de Buey lithostratigraphic units constrain the local distribution range between 6 and 5.3 Ma for the last three species, whereas S. globigerus appears locally at 5.5 Ma and disappears between 3.79 and 3.46 Ma in the Imperial and Trinidad Formations. The last occurrence of Streptochilus latus, and the first and last occurrences of S. globigerus in the ancient Gulf of California are correlated with bioevents calibrated in the equatorial Pacific; therefore, they can be used as reliable local biostratigraphic markers. The presence of Streptochilus in the ancient Gulf of California seems to correlate with upwelling, in a pattern similar to that observed in the modern oceans.


          RNA sequencing analysis of transcriptional change in the freshwater mussel Elliptio complanata after environmentally relevant sodium chloride exposure   

To identify potential biomarkers of salt stress in a freshwater sentinel species, we examined transcriptional responses of the common mussel Elliptio complanata to controlled sodium chloride (NaCl) exposures. Ribonucleic acid sequencing (RNA-Seq) of mantle tissue identified 481 transcripts differentially expressed in adult mussels exposed to 2 ppt NaCl (1.2 ppt chloride) for 7 d, of which 290 had nonoverlapping intervals. Differentially expressed gene categories included ion and transmembrane transport, oxidoreductase activity, maintenance of protein folding, and amino acid metabolism. The rate-limiting enzyme for synthesis of taurine, an amino acid frequently linked to osmotic stress in aquatic species, was upregulated, as was the transmembrane ion pump sodium/potassium adenosine 5′-triphosphatase. These patterns confirm a primary transcriptional response to the experimental dose, albeit likely overlapping with nonspecific secondary stress responses. Substantial involvement of the heat shock protein 70 chaperone family and the water-transporting aquaporin family was not detected, however, in contrast to some studies in other bivalves. A subset of the most significantly regulated genes was confirmed by quantitative polymerase chain reaction in an independent sample. Cluster analysis showed separation of mussels exposed to 2 ppt NaCl from control mussels in multivariate space, but mussels exposed to 1 ppt NaCl were largely indistinguishable from controls. Transcriptome-scale analysis of salt exposure under laboratory conditions efficiently identified candidate biomarkers for further functional analysis and field validation


          Reconnaissance stratigraphic studies in the Susitna basin, Alaska, during the 2014 field season   

The Susitna basin is a poorly-understood Cenozoic successor basin immediately north of Cook Inlet in south-central Alaska (Kirschner, 1994). The basin is bounded by the Castle Mountain fault and Cook Inlet basin on the south, the Talkeetna Mountains on the east, the Alaska Range on the north, and the Alaska–Aleutian Range on the west (fig. 2-1). The Cenozoic fill of the basin includes coal-bearing nonmarine rocks that are partly correlative with Paleogene strata in the Matanuska Valley and Paleogene and Neogene formations in Cook Inlet (Stanley and others, 2013, 2014). Mesozoic sedimentary rocks are present in widely-scattered uplifts in and around the margins of the basin; these rocks differ significantly from Mesozoic rocks in the forearc basin to the south. Mesozoic strata in the Susitna region were likely part of a remnant ocean basin that preceded the nonmarine Cenozoic basin (Trop and Ridgway, 2007). The presence of coal-bearing strata similar to units that are proven source rocks for microbial gas in Cook Inlet (Claypool and others, 1980) suggests the possibility of a similar system in the Susitna basin (Decker and others, 2012). In 2011 the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) and Alaska Division of Oil and Gas, in collaboration with the U.S. Geological Survey, initiated a study of the gas potential of the Susitna basin (Gillis and others, 2013). This report presents a preliminary summary of the results from 14 days of helicopter-supported field work completed in the basin in August 2014. The goals of this work were to continue the reconnaissance stratigraphic work begun in 2011 aimed at understanding reservoir and seal potential of Tertiary strata, characterize the gas source potential of coals, and examine Mesozoic strata for source and reservoir potential

          Rethink Big and Europe?s Position in Big Data   

I will here take a break from core database and talk a bit about EU policies for research funding.

I had lunch with Stefan Manegold of CWI last week, where we talked about where European research should go. Stefan is involved in RETHINK big, a European research project for compiling policy advice regarding big data for EC funding agencies. As part of this, he is interviewing various stakeholders such as end user organizations and developers of technology.

RETHINK big wants to come up with a research agenda primarily for hardware, anything from faster networks to greener data centers. CWI represents software expertise in the consortium.

So, we went through a regular questionnaire about how we see the landscape. I will summarize this below, as this is anyway informative.

Core competence

My own core competence is in core database functionality, specifically in high performance query processing, scale-out, and managing schema-less data. Most of the Virtuoso installed base is in the RDF space, but most potential applications are in fact outside of this niche.

User challenges

The life sciences vertical is the one in which I have the most application insight, from going to Open PHACTS meetings and holding extensive conversations with domain specialists. We have users in many other verticals, from manufacturing to financial services, but there I do not have as much exposure to the actual applications.

Having said this, the challenges throughout tend to be in diversity of data. Every researcher has their MySQL database or spreadsheet, and there may not even be a top level catalogue of everything. Data formats are diverse. Some people use linked data (most commonly RDF) as a top level metadata format. The application data, such as gene sequences or microarray assays, reside in their native file formats and there is little point in RDF-izing these.

There are also public data resources that are published in RDF serializations as vendor-neutral, self-describing format. Having everything as triples, without a priori schema, makes things easier to integrate and in some cases easier to describe and query.

So, the challenge is in the labor intensive nature of data integration. Data comes with different levels of quantity and quality, from hand-curated to NLP extractions. Querying in the single- or double-digit terabyte range with RDF is quite possible, as we have shown many times on this blog, but most use cases do not even go that far. Anyway, what we see on the field is primarily a data diversity game. The scenario is data integration; the technology we provide is database. The data transformation proper, data cleansing, units of measure, entity de-duplication, and such core data-integration functions are performed using diverse, user-specific means.

Jerven Bolleman of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics is a user of ours with whom we have long standing discussions on the virtues of federated data and querying. I advised Stefan to go talk to him; he has fresh views about the volume challenges with unexpected usage patterns. Designing for performance is tough if the usage pattern is out of the blue, like correlating air humidity on the day of measurement with the presence of some genomic patterns. Building a warehouse just for that might not be the preferred choice, so the problem field is not exhausted. Generally, I’d go for warehousing though.

What technology would you like to have? Network or power efficiency?

OK. Even a fast network is a network. A set of processes on a single shared-memory box is also a kind of network. InfiniBand is maybe half the throughput and 3x the latency of single threaded interprocess communication within one box. The operative word is latency. Making large systems always involves a network or something very much like one in large scale-up scenarios.

On the software side, next to nobody understands latency and contention; yet these are the one core factor in any pursuit of scalability. Because of this situation, paradigms like MapReduce and bulk synchronous parallel (BSP) processing have become popular because these take the communication out of the program flow, so the programmer cannot muck this up, as otherwise would happen with the inevitability of destiny. Of course, our beloved SQL or declarative query in general does give scalability in many tasks without programmer participation. Datalog has also been used as a means of shipping computation around, as in the the work of Hellerstein.

There are no easy solutions. We have built scale-out conscious, vectorized extensions to SQL procedures where one can express complex parallel, distributed flows, but people do not use or understand these. These are very useful, even indispensable, but only on the inside, not as a programmer-facing construct. MapReduce and BSP are the limit of what a development culture will absorb. MapReduce and BSP do not hide the fact of distributed processing. What about things that do? Parallel, partitioned extensions to Fortran arrays? Functional languages? I think that all the obvious aids to parallel/distributed programming have been conceived of. No silver bullet; just hard work. And above all the discernment of what paradigm fits what problem. Since these are always changing, there is no finite set of rules, and no substitute for understanding and insight, and the latter are vanishingly scarce. "Paradigmatism," i.e., the belief that one particular programming model is a panacea outside of its original niche, is a common source of complexity and inefficiency. This is a common form of enthusiastic naïveté.

If you look at power efficiency, the clusters that are the easiest to program consist of relatively few high power machines and a fast network. A typical node size is 16+ cores and 256G or more RAM. Amazon has these in entirely workable configurations, as documented earlier on this blog. The leading edge in power efficiency is in larger number of smaller units, which makes life again harder. This exacerbates latency and forces one to partition the data more often, whereas one can play with replication of key parts of data more freely if the node size is larger.

One very specific item where research might help without having to rebuild the hardware stack would be better, lower-latency exposure of networks to software. Lightweight threads and user-space access, bypassing slow protocol stacks, etc. MPI has some of this, but maybe more could be done.

So, I will take a cluster of such 16-core, 256GB machines on a faster network, over a cluster of 1024 x 4G mobile phones connected via USB. Very selfish and unecological, but one has to stay alive and life is tough enough as is.

Are there pressures to adapt business models based on big data?

The transition from capex to opex may be approaching maturity, as there have been workable cloud configurations for the past couple of years. The EC2 from way back, with at best a 4 core 16G VM and a horrible network for $2/hr, is long gone. It remains the case that 4 months of 24x7 rent in the cloud equals the purchase price of physical hardware. So, for this to be economical long-term at scale, the average utilization should be about 10% of the peak, and peaks should not be on for more than 10% of the time.

So, database software should be rented by the hour. A 100-150% markup for the $2.80 a large EC2 instance costs would be reasonable. Consider that 70% of the cost in TPC benchmarks is database software.

There will be different pricing models combining different up-front and per-usage costs, just as there are for clouds now. If the platform business goes that way and the market accepts this, then systems software will follow. Price/performance quotes should probably be expressed as speed/price/hour instead of speed/price.

The above is rather uncontroversial but there is no harm restating these facts. Reinforce often.

Well, the question is raised, what should Europe do that would have tangible impact in the next 5 years?

This is a harder question. There is some European business in wide area and mobile infrastructures. Competing against Huawei will keep them busy. Intel and Mellanox will continue making faster networks regardless of European policies. Intel will continue building denser compute nodes, e.g., integrated Knight’s Corner with dual IB network and 16G fast RAM on chip. Clouds will continue making these available on demand once the technology is in mass production.

What’s the next big innovation? Neuromorphic computing? Quantum computing? Maybe. For now, I’d just do more engineering along the core competence discussed above, with emphasis on good marketing and scalable execution. By this I mean trained people who know something about deployment. There is a huge training gap. In the would-be "Age of Data," knowledge of how things actually work and scale is near-absent. I have offered to do some courses on this to partners and public alike, but I need somebody to drive this show; I have other things to do.

I have been to many, many project review meetings, mostly as a project partner but also as reviewer. For the past year, the EC has used an innovation questionnaire at the end of the meetings. It is quite vague, and I don’t think it delivers much actionable intelligence.

What would deliver this would be a venture capital type activity, with well-developed networks and active participation in developing a business. The EC is not now set up to perform this role, though. But the EC is a fairly large and wealthy entity, so it could invest some money via this type of channel. Also there should be higher individual incentives and rewards for speed and excellence. Getting the next Horizon 2020 research grant may be good, but better exists. The grants are competitive enough and the calls are not bad; they follow the times.

In the projects I have seen, productization does get some attention, e.g., the LOD2 stack, but it is not something that is really ongoing or with dedicated commercial backing. It may also be that there is no market to justify such dedicated backing. Much of the RDF work has been "me, too" — let’s do what the real database and data integration people do, but let’s just do this with triples. Innovation? Well, I took the best of the real DB world and adapted this to RDF, which did produce a competent piece of work with broad applicability, extending outside RDF. Is there better than this? Well, some of the data integration work (e.g., LIMES) is not bad, and it might be picked up by some of the players that do this sort of thing in the broader world, e.g., Informatica, the DI suites of big DB vendors, Tamr, etc. I would not know if this in fact adds value to the non-RDF equivalents; I do not know the field well enough, but there could be a possibility.

The recent emphasis for benchmarking, spearheaded by Stefano Bertolo is good, as exemplified by the LDBC FP7. There should probably be one or two projects of this sort going at all times. These make challenges known and are an effective means of guiding research, with a large multiplier: Once a benchmark gets adopted, infinitely more work goes into solving the problem than in stating it in the first place.

The aims and calls are good. The execution by projects is variable. For 1% of excellence, there apparently must be 99% of so-and-so, but this is just a fact of life and not specific to this context. The projects are rather diffuse. There is not a single outcome that gets all the effort. In this, the level of engagement of participants is less and focus is much more scattered than in startups. A really hungry, go-getter mood is mostly absent. I am a believer in core competence. Well, most people will agree that core competence is nice. But the projects I have seen do not drive for it hard enough.

It is hard to say exactly what kinds of incentives could be offered to encourage truly exceptional work. The American startup scene does offer high rewards and something of this could be transplanted into the EC project world. I would not know exactly what form this could take, though.


          New York Food & Rice Guide   

New York ist New York. Und New York wäre nicht New York, wenn es dort nicht auch die abgefahrensten und coolsten Foodtrends gäbe. So groß, bunt, vielfältig, lebendig und stylisch, wie die Stadt selbst, so sind auch die Möglichkeiten für Foodies. Die Begierde nach den neusten und ausgefallensten Gaumenfreuden wird hier aber keinesfalls gestillt. Nein, sie wird zusätzlich entfacht und von all den leckeren Inspirationen auf ein neues Level gebracht.

Schon nach meinem ersten Tag in dieser umwerfenden Stadt überlege ich, wie ich schnell zur hauptberuflichen NYC Food Bloggerin werden kann. Ich freue mich, es einfach eine Woche lang zu sein und genieße genüsslich die Recherchearbeit. Mein erster Tipp in diesem Kurzzeitjob: lasst Euch treiben! Bewaffnet Euch mit einem leckeren Café und zieht durch die Straßen, in denen Ihr an jeder Ecke tolle Läden mit ausgefallenen Drink- und Foodkreationen findet. Inspiration at its best.

Rice to Riches

„If there´s no Rice Pudding in heaven, I´m not going“. Das ist mal ´ne Ansage und eine Liebeserklärung zugleich. Dabei brauchte es ein bisschen, bis ich verstanden habe, dass Reispudding nichts anderes ist, als mein geliebter Milchreis. Spätestens hier wird deutlich – ich bin ein Reishunger Neuling und noch ganz frisch in der Crew. Bei „Rice to Riches“ ist das süße Reis Meal nicht nur ein simples Gericht, sondern eine Lebenseinstellung. Man wird von der Sortenvielfalt fast erschlagen und selbst das Pre-Tasting macht die Wahl nicht einfacher. Der Pudding wird aus Sushi Reis, Milch, Sahne, Eiern und Zucker zubereitet und kalt serviert. In meiner Schüssel ist übrigens ein Mix aus ´Hazelnut Chocolate´ und ´Peach Mango´ gelandet – eine Traumkombi!

Rose Matcha Latte

Direkt um die Ecke liegt "Greecologies" und damit DIE Anlaufstation für Joghurtliebhaber. Denn dieser wird hier frisch und traditionell hergestellt. Mich hat allerdings der ´Rose Matcha Latte´ in den minimalistisch durchdesignten Laden gelockt - wirklich unglaublich lecker! Wer nicht auf Matcha steht, kann sich an vielen anderen Kaffee- und Chai-Varianten erfreuen, die entweder heiß oder eiskalt serviert werden.

Brooklyn Bridge Run

Nach dieser Energieladung musste die Power erstmal auf die Straße gebracht werden und meine Foodleidenschaft wurde kurzerhand vom Fitnessfanatismus verdrängt. Ich empfehle wirklich jedem einen knackigen Lauf (oder Walk) über die sagenhafte Brooklyn Bridge - Gänsehaut pur!

Breakfast in Manhattan

Als absoluter Frühstücks Fan darf genau diese Mahlzeit in New York nicht fehlen, denn die Stadt ist voll mit coolen Cafés, die einen Daystart in Perfektion liefern. Den besten Avocadotoast, den ich jemals gegessen habe, gibt es im „The Smith“ in Midtown oder East Village. Ein grandioser Geheimtipp von einem New Yorker Freund. Dort habe ich übrigens auch meinen ersten (halben) Pancaketurm vernascht und konnte mich danach kaum bewegen.

Ausgefallenere Kreationen erwarten Euch bei „Butcher´s Daughter“ in der Nähe vom Meatpacking District. Dieser Instagram Klassiker bescherte mir super leckere ´Rice Matcha Pancakes´ mit frischen Beeren und Vanillecreme. Die Zauberzutat neben dem Matchapulver ist das Reismehl, das die Pancakes zu einem fluffigen Frühstücksgenuss werden lässt.

Deli´s, Lunch & More

Von dort aus bietet sich eine entspannte Tour durch die Viertel von Lower Manhattan an. Die Stadtteile Greenwich Village, West Village, SoHo und Nolita sind meine absoluten Favoriten und punkten mit einer Kombi aus entspanntem Sightseeing, Coffeeshop-Viewing und Deli-Shopping! Dabei führt kein Weg an „Dean & Deluca“ vorbei. Ein Gourmet Shop der Extraklasse: frischer Kaffee, sagenhaftes Sushi, backfrische Brote, ausgefallene Salatkreationen und Feinkost aus der ganzen Welt treffen sich hier, um den (Reis)hunger zu stillen. Nach einem Reisregal-Check und gewappnet mit leckeren Salaten habe ich ein paar Straßen weiter den gemütlichen „Elizabeth Street Garden“ entdeckt. Ein perfekter Ort für ein ruhiges Picknick inmitten des Großstadtdschungels!

Farm to Table Shopping

Doch nicht nur die Feinkostläden laden zum Foodshopping ein, auch die großartig sortierten ´Farm to Table Supermärkte´, wie „Hudson Market“ und „Foragers“ sind einen Besuch wert. Die Auswahl an Lebensmitteln ist unglaublich liebevoll arrangiert und stammt von lokalen Höfen mit traditioneller Produktion.

Chelsea Market & Highline Park

Auch der Chelsea Market ist ein "Must See". Die ehemalige Keksfabrik (hier wurden die berühmten Oreo´s erfunden) wurde zu einem Urban Food Court verwandelt, der seinesgleichen sucht. Wer die zu 100% auftauchende Entscheidungsproblematik besiegt hat, sollte sein Meal unbedingt im benachbarten Highline Park genießen. Hier sitzt man zwischen den Wolkenkratzern der Stadt mit Blick auf den Hudson River oder das Empire State Building – geht noch mehr New York Feeling?

Streetfood & Smorgasburg

Aber auch die Straßen der Stadt bieten mit der Vielzahl an kleinen Imbisswagen vermeintlich unscheinbare Snacks. Dass sich hier zum Teil großartige Street Food Köche austoben, die eine authentische, internationale Länderküche zaubern, erkennt man vielleicht erst auf den zweiten Blick. Bestätigt haben mir dies Oscar und sein Kumpel, die beide an der Columbia University studieren und jeden Tag an einem der leckeren, asiatischen Foodtrucks ihre Mittagspause genießen – und klar, natürlich lieben sie Reis!

Wer noch mehr Streetfood genießen will, der muss den heftigsten Foodmarket besuchen, den ich je erlebt habe: Smorgasburg in Williamsburg! Wenn Streetfood Trends irgendwo aus dem Foodtruck gereicht werden, dann dort! Der Markt ist nicht nur riesig, sondern absolut bunt, kreativ, laut, stylisch und einfach absolut verrückt.

I´ll come back!

Ich kann euch definitiv versichern: als Food Fan werdet ihr NYC lieben und die Stadt mit vielen Inspirationen für die eigene Küche verlassen. Ihr wart schon dort und habt wietere tolle Tipps? Dann haut in die Tasten und schreibt mir gerne ein Kommentar! Denn der nächste Trip in meine neue Lieblingsstadt wird schon geplant - Eure Jana

          Kommentar zu Pimp My Stock: Bildbesprechungen von Stockfotos 51 von Eike Leppert   
Danke Andreas für deine Tipps! Das mit dem Beschnitt werde ich mir zu Herzen nehmen! Ich dachte vorher immer, dass ich unwichtige Bildbereiche besser entferne, damit die Bildbotschaft bereits im kleinen Vorschaubild schon erkennbar ist. Das Bild mit der Hand ist tatsächlich so fotografiert worden. Ich habe ein großes Flipchart bemalt und meine eigene Hand ins Bild gebracht und mit einer Softbox geblitzt. Gruß Eike
          Kommentar zu Pimp My Stock: Bildbesprechungen von Stockfotos 51 von Andreas   
Das Bild mit der Grafik und der Hand kann proportional nicht Stimmen. Sieht so aus, als sei die Hand einmontiert. Als Grafiker würde ich immer eigene Grafiken verwenden, die im Illustrator gemacht werden und mir bei Bedarf eine passende Hand suchen. Die Kästchen gehen garnicht weil damit jeglicher Bewegungsspielraum verloren geht. Beim Bild "Händewaschen" hat Robert ja schon geschrieben, dass der Wasserhan angeschnitten ist. Der Fotograf sollte den Motiven immer genug Freiraum geben den oft ändert sich der Text und das Bild muss neu beschnittten werden oder das Format ändert sich. Wenn hier zu wenig Möglichkeiten bestehen ist das Bild nicht brauchbar. Kaffee mit Text: Hier ist der Text so nah am Rand dass es schwierig wird eine Datei mit Anschnitt, beim Druck wird immer ein Teil der Seite abgeschnitten, zu erstellen. Das Endformat einer Postkarte ist z.B. 105 x 148 mm. Das Datenformat ist aber jeweils 2-3 mm an allen Seiten grösser. Randabfallende Motive müssen also auch grösser als das Endformat sein. Bei Büchern können es auch mal 2 cm sein.
          It seems a heavy choice to make

  • As A New Wave Of Cyberattacks Rolls Out, Rep. Ted Lieu Asks What The NSA's Going To Do About It

    Leaked NSA exploits have now been the basis for two massive cyberattacks. The first -- Wannacry -- caught hospitals and other critical infrastructure across several nations in the crossfire, using a tool built on the NSA's ETERNALBLUE exploit backbone. The second seems to be targeting Ukraine, causing the same sort of havoc but with a couple of particularly nasty twists.

    This one, called Petya, demanded ransom from victims. Things went from bad to worse when email provider Posteo shut down the attacker's account. Doing so prevented affected users from receiving decryption keys, even if they paid the ransom.

    It soon became apparent it didn't matter what Posteo did, no matter how clueless or ill-advised. There was no retrieving files even if ransoms were paid. Two separate sets of security researchers examined the so-called ransomware and discovered Petya is actually a wiper. Once infected, victims' files are as good as gone. No amount of bitcoin is going to reverse the inevitable. The ransomware notices were only there to draw attention to the infection and away from the malware's true purpose.

  • Microsoft, please stop doing things for our own good

    For over 20 years, Microsoft stomped on its competitors and then defended itself against the resulting antitrust lawsuits. But with desktop Windows waning in importance and its desktop software rivals largely gone, Microsoft seemed to have turned a new leaf. Or had it?

    In the one software sphere left where it still has rivals — antivirus and security software — Microsoft is up to its old anti-competitive tricks. Late last year, Eugene Kaspersky, founder of the eponymous antivirus company, said, “When you upgrade to Windows 10, Microsoft automatically and without any warning deactivates all ‘incompatible’ security software and in its place installs… you guessed it — its own Defender antivirus. But what did it expect when independent developers were given all of one week before the release of the new version of the OS to make their software compatible?”

          Chinese-American Composer Daniel Walker's New Rock Musical QING CHENG/DARK CITY to Hit NYMF   

Chinese-American composer Daniel Walker's spellbinding new rock musical "Qing Cheng/Dark City," about the refugee experience in China, breaks free at this summer's NY Musical Theatre Festival.

A modern fable seen through the eyes of a rootless young girl who finds sanctuary in a dangerous ghetto outside of Hong Kong, "Qing Cheng/Dark City" is directed by Kirsten Sanderson and produced by Sabrina Zuo.

First seen in a staged reading in Pasadena in 2015, the musical's East Coast debut performs at The Green Room 42, in Yotel, 570 10th Avenue, on Thursday July 20 at 7pm; Friday July 21 at 1pm, and Saturday July 22, at 5pm. For tickets and information visit www.nymf.org.

Set in a city-within-a-city modeled after the legendary Kowloon Walled City, the musical tells the story of Ahn, a penniless young refugee who finds safety, love and even hope amid the poverty and chaos around her. A mostly anarchist warren of tight-knit, ramshackle dwellings that housed as many as 33,000 people until it was razed after the transfer from the British of Hong Kong to Chinese control, Kowloon persists in the popular Chinese imagination as a place of mythic beauty and danger. It is now the site of a sprawling park in modern-day Hong Kong.

A pre-eminent contemporary-classical composer based in Pasadena, Walker has extensive commissions internationally. His ballet, "Marco Polo: The Last Mission" was premiered by the Shanghai Ballet as part of the opening festival of China's World Expo in 2010, and is part of the company's permanent repertoire. His five-movement "See Without Looking" was commissioned by the Forbidden City Chamber Orchestra in 2016, and received its US premiere at the New England Conservatory in March of this year. Dean of the music department of the Cornel School of Contemporary Music in Los Angeles, Walker's compositions can also be heard in film and on television: Here on HBO, NBC, ABC, PBS; in Europe (Bavaria Films), and in Asia where his theme songs for "Curiosity Kills the Cat" and the hit Japanese anime series "The Galaxy Railways" are well-known.

Director Sanderson is best known for her collaborations with Michael John LaChiusa at The Public ("First Lady Suite," and "First Daughter Suite"); at Playwrights Horizons ("Lucky Nurse"), and at the Blank Theater in Hollywood ("Little Fish and Sukie and Sue"). She has been a resident director at New Dramatists; director of The Ensemble Studio Theatre's National Theatre Colony, and she has taught at Playwright's Horizon's Theatre School; NYU; AMDA in L.A., and the Eugene O'Neil Center's National Theatre Institute.

Producer Sabrina Zuo is a well-known Chinese-American radio personality on the West Coast who is heard three-times a week on her Mandarin-language radio program, heard in Los Angeles and Pasadena. Formerly a vice president of the American International Cultural Exchange Foundation, she actively promotes Chinese culture in the US, having produced numerous events in the Los Angeles area, including the China National Acrobatic Troupe; CCTV's Same Song tour; China National Opera & Dance Theater; Nan Ning Art Theater; The China Central Orchestra, and many others.

Daniel Walker's rock musical song-cycle "Qing Cheng/Dark City," featuring a cast of six actors and six musicians, performs as follows: Thursday July 20 at 7pm; Friday July 21 at 1pm, and Saturday July 22, at 5pm, at The Green Room 42, in Yotel, 570 10th Avenue. (Running time is 1:45) Tickets, which are $27.50, are available at www.nymf.org.

          The Gang at the Sleepy Hollow Ranch   



 It doesn't make a sound.
It takes no real skill to master.
It doesn't need tuning
because it can play in any key.

And yet it's a musical instrument
with such dynamic power
that it changed music forever.
It is a radio microphone.

In this particular case it's an image
of the microphone on the sound stage
of Radio CKLW
broadcasting from Windsor, Ontario, Canada.


 Standing around it are Elmer, Andy, and Pat
on violin, accordion, and bass fiddle.





On the other side are Mike, Pancake Pete, and Happy
playing accordion, guitar, and another bass fiddle.



In the center closest to the microphone
are Julie Murray and Sophie Murray
on mandolin and guitar
backed up by Red and Ken
on violin and guitar.





And let's not forget
Hiram Hillsberry and Uncle Hal
sitting down front on the floor.




Wearing the best in Western fashion
with ten gallon hats, neckerchiefs, and fancy shirts,
they all send

Season's Greetings
from the
Sleepy Hollow Cowboys
and Cowgirls
and the Vagabond Cowboys. 





In 1938 you could hear them on the radio Wednesdays at 3:30 PM in the Detroit, MI and Windsor, ON area. This photo was likely sent out so listeners to radio CKLW could put faces to voices. My guess is that Uncle Hal did the introductions as the show's emcee and Hiram Hillsberry provided colorful commentary with a joke or two. Julie and Sophie Murray were the featured vocal stars while  Elmer and Pancake Pete added the solo instrumentals. I suspect the Vagabond Cowboys are the four musicians on the back row. Two accordions might seem excessive but then this was the land of polkas which are not far removed from western swing music.



Detroit Free Press
9 February 1938

In 1938 the Sleepy Hollow Ranch was just one of hundreds of entertainment choices available to radio listeners in the Great Lake Region of Michigan, Ontario, and Ohio. The radio microphone brought all kinds of music to a new audience over the radio airwaves. For the first time symphonies and operas could be heard in rural homes far from big city concert halls. And likewise small bands performing blues, jazz, and country western music introduced America's urban population to new styles and rhythms. At the center of this new medium and entertainment industry was the microphone. The sound it captured was monophonic, low fidelity and broadcast over an AM signal but people couldn't get enough. Radio shifted the concert experience from an audience watching live musicians on a stage to a network where thousands of individuals listened to music coming from an electronic speaker on a radio cabinet.  Imagination supplied the visuals, and sometimes the postcards at least helped fans visualize the right shade of cowboy hat.



There is no date on this photo which was printed larger than a postcard and in newspaper halftones, so we can't know the precise Christmas season. But the earliest mention of the Sleepy Hollow Ranch on radio schedules was October 1937 and the last was October 1939. But they did not drop off the air, they only changed stations.





Pottstown PA Mercury
29 June 1940














The band had two leaders, Elmer and "Pancake Pete" Newman. In the late 1930s they each married one of the two Murray sisters, whose real name was Bogdonovich. Pete with Sophie were wed in 1936, and Elmer and Julie the following year. 

After some success in the Great Lake market, in 1940 they moved to the Philadelphia area and together opened an amusement park called the Sleepy Hollow Ranch located on Route 663, between Pennsburg and Quakertown. Visitors were entertained by farm animals, pony rides, merry-go-round, picnic food, square dancing, and country western music. The big Sleepy Hollow Barn Dance was broadcast on Philadelphia's WFIL and WEEU radio. 

Much of this information I found on a website devoted to Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia. A second website on Philly Regional news had a 2013 article on the story of this popular park from the perspective of two younger Newman brothers who grew up in the family's Sleepy Hollow Ranch. The radio broadcasts made the park an important venue for country and western artists to include on a concert tour. Patsy Cline, Roy Acuff, Roy Rogers, Minnie Pearl, Merle Travis, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, and Eddie Arnold were among the many notable singers who played the Sleepy Hollow Stage.





* * *


The Sleepy Hollow Ranch was not the only cowboy music venue in the region. In 1940 the entertainment listings for the Labor Day weekend in the Pottstown, PA Mercury included Carolina Slim and his Mountaineers, with Ray Meyers the Armless Wonder, who plays the electric guitar with his feet, at Hickory Park. Over at Quakertown's Circle J Ranch the Nationally Known Group, The Carter Family performed with the Westward Hoo Cowboys, the Calgary Kid of WCAU, and Acrobatic Dancer Dorrie Dale. The Bar C—C Ranch in Elverson had Gene Autry's sidekick Smiley "Frog" Burnette & His Rhythm Wranglers along with the Georgia Crackers, the 3 Cortellis trapeze performers, Wally Walters Jr. and his 3 dummies, and the Cowboy Caravan.  

For Philadelphians the Wild East seemed to have
just as many cowboys and cowgirls as the Wild West.

          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.

          New Private Home Sales Up By 82%   
Sales of new private homes defied expectations to surge to a near four-year high last month, when some property cooling measures were adjusted for the first time since they were first implemented in 2009.

Developers sold 1,780 new units - excluding executive condos (ECs) - up about 82 per cent from the 979 homes booked in February. This was also more than double the 843 homes shifted in March last year. Upcoming executive condo launches include Hundred Palms Residences, Anchorvale Lane EC, while existing ones include Parc Life, Signature at Yishun, Brownstone EC, Visionaire EC, Inz Residence, The Criterion EC and Northwave EC, The Terrace EC, The Vales EC, Sol Acres EC and The Bellewoods EC. Hundred Palms Residences details and Hundred Palms EC show flat will be available shortly.

Last month's strong showing took new home sales in the first quarter to 3,141 - the best quarterly effort since the second quarter of 2013, said consultancy CBRE.

Analysts said the sales figures released by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) yesterday further point to a gradual recovery in the private residential property sector and are a huge boost to market sentiment. "This is reflective of a broad-based improvement in demand, with buyers not just attracted to newly launched projects, but also to those launched previously as well," noted Mr Ong Teck Hui, national director of research and consultancy at JLL.

Ms Christine Li, research director at Cushman & Wakefield, said: "With liquidity aplenty, waning concerns over the supply situation, buyers are coming back to the primary market in droves, as many are buying into the idea that Singapore's residential market is moving a step closer to a turning point."

Indeed, the level of new home sales last month has not been seen since June 2013, when 1,806 units were sold. Monthly sales cooled substantially after the Government implemented the total debt servicing ratio framework in June 2013.

Last month's robust sales were partly due to the slight easing of some cooling measures by the Government, which "have injected a shot of optimism among buyers", said ERA Realty Network key executive officer Eugene Lim.

The Government unexpectedly announced last month that it will shorten the seller's stamp duty holding period for homes bought from March 11 to three years instead of four years. It will also cut rates for each tier by four percentage points.

The two best-selling private projects were both new launches: CEL Development's Grandeur Park Residences in Tanah Merah, which sold 484 units at a median price of $1,406 per sq ft (psf); and Lendlease's Park Place Residences At PLQ in Paya Lebar. This moved 217 units at a median price of $1,805 psf.

"Buyers are more prepared to make a purchase, in view of prices possibly bottoming out. The impetus to procure land is becoming more urgent for developers as the unsold inventory of projects in the market is steadily being cleared," noted Mr Joseph Tan, executive director of residential services at CBRE.

The URA data showed that suburban areas led sales last month with 1,123 new units sold, followed by 589 in the city fringe and 68 in the core central region.

In the EC segment, developers sold 578 new units last month, up by about 76 per cent from February. This was driven by healthy sales at the new iNz Residences in Choa Chu Kang, which moved 187 units at a median price of $774 psf.

March's sales momentum is likely to carry through to coming months as several projects are due to hit the market.

These include Seaside Residences in Siglap, Artra in Redhill and Martin Modern in Martin Place.

Despite the surge in sales and the positive sentiment, it is premature to conclude that private home prices will increase this year.

Mr Nicholas Mak, head of research at SLP International Property Consultants, said: "Some developers may try to up prices to test the market, but it is not enough to move overall prices because only very selective well-located projects can pull off this strategy."

          March Daybook: Savannah Edition    
For Today ( make sure you join the fun! Participate over at The Simple Woman's Daybook Blog!)

March 14, 2013
Outside my window... a beautiful, even though it's a little chilly, Savannah morning! I am thinking...about what project I need to begin. I feel a painting coming on, but I'm not sure where to start.
I am thankful...for friends. It's so true that friends are the family you choose. I am so blessed to have a friend who was willing to pick me up, then drive me to South Carolina when I didn't have another way to make it to see my grandmother on her 86th birthday. Thank you, Deanna!
In the kitchen...I made grits this morning! It's the first time Mary and Deanna have had what I call REAL Southern grits. They enjoyed them, so breakfast was a success!
I am wearing...jammies! Lay-around-and-be-lazy days are awesome.
I am creating...well, just writing right now. My brain is stewing something up, though.
I am going...nowhere unless I feel like it!
I am wondering... Oh, I am always wondering - well, worrying - about what's happening next. I try and try to live in the moment, but my pre-planning gene is too active sometimes!
I am reading... Spirited: Unlock Your Psychic Self and Change Your Life by Rebecca Rosen, Samantha Rose
I am hoping... to keep up with my "training". I found three or four FIRM workouts that I love, so I hope I can keep gaining strength (and eventually see pounds come off. They weren't kidding; after 30 it's so much harder!)
I am looking forward to... seeing what else we get into while I'm here in Savannah!
I am learning... to take every single thing moment by moment. Still. You'd think that lesson was easier to grasp.
Around the house...sleeping puppies. It's so cute when they dream and snore!
I am pondering...nothing deep. Just thinking about another cup of coffee.
A favorite quote for today... "Isn't it funny how, day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different." ~C.S. Lewis
One of my favorite things...spending time with friends!
A few plans for the rest of the week: The plan this week is to make no plans! It's a do-whatever kind of thing!
A peek into my day...well, this was from yesterday, but it still made my day. My best friends Deanna and Mary took me up to Aiken, SC for the day so I wouldn't miss visiting my grandmother for her 86th birthday! Not only did it make my day, but it was the best present they could have given her (her words!). I love this shot of her blowing out her candles. Nothing better than a day full of family and friends!
I will always cherish this shot! She was so happy when I made it to visit for her birthday, and then we were surprised again with a big family crowd for her birthday lunch! She said "I've had a wonderful day ever since my feet it the floor!"

          Solbolle   

Skal jeg gnåle mer om været? Ja, litt til! Det regner jo i et jevnt tempo, men det gjør ikke så mye når vi kan ha det hyggelig innendørs. Siden det er lenge siden sola har vist sitt blide åsyn,  fikk vi lage våre egne små soler i form av ferske solboller som jeg har hørt noen kalle dem. For meg er det skolebrød. Men uansett navn så er det et koselig lysegult midtpunkt av deilig vaniljekrem som lyser som en søt sol der i midten.

 Bollene har den ære å være første bakverk bakt i den nye stekeovnen vår. Det gikk helt fint selv om det er noe uvant med hvordan instillingene settes. Resultatet må jeg si ble bedre enn i den gamle ovnen, i form av fin heving og pent stekte undersider.



Hei der oppe! Selv om det regner aldri så mye så må jeg ut en tur sånn dann og vann. Det er ganske kjedelig for en aktiv liten bisk å bare tråkke rundt i stua!

Ja, ja Vera. Snart skal vi ut og samle inn penger til årets TV-aksjon. Da skal du få lufte deg, enten det regner eller ikke.


GOD SØNDAG!



          Takk for alt!   

Nå har stekeovnen vår stekt sin siste kjeks. Det er kanskje ikke noe annet å vente etter tolv år i lang og tro tjeneste. Sikringene gikk da vi satte den på, og elektrikeren kunne konstatere at det var elementene som var gåene. Grillfunksjonen øverst i ovnen var det ikke noe å si på, der var det varme og virkning som bare det. At det var egne rør øverst i ovnen til å grille ting har vært en vel bevart hemmelighet, jeg visste ikke om den før jeg putta hele hodet inn for å undersøke feilen.

 Bolledeigen havnet i søpla etter å ha stått til heving i sånn cirka åtte timer, ingen mulighet å bruke den ubenyttede grillfunksjonen på skolebrød! Så hvordan kan vi finne noe positivt i dette da? 

Nei, her er det bare å glede seg til en IKEA-tur og flunka ny ovn. Tror også det får bli ny induksjonsplate i samme slengen, og kanskje ny vifte også? Dessuten er vel julepynten kommet, så her er det bare å se fordelene ved stekeovnsammenbruddet!Får ta fram IKEAkatalogen nå, kjenner jeg :-)





          September er helt okei   


Selv om det blåser og regner en god del, er det også masse sol og litt varme innimellom. Jeg syns det er kjempefint å være ute nå. På hundelufteturene går jeg og ser på hagene til folk, hvordan alt sakte forandrer seg under den blå septemberhimmelen. Trærne begynner å skifte farge og blomstene visner. 

I hagen vår har vi rekord år når det kommer til antall epler. Ponget er bare at det er helt unødvendig med så fryktelig mange!


Treet klarer jo ikke å holde på alle sammen, langt mindre gi næring slik at tusenvis av kart kan vokse seg store, søte og saftige. Minst halvparten er dødsdømte der de henger og dingler på tunge grener. Og hver dag detter hauger og lass ned. Lass som noen må plukke opp og kaste et annet sted...


Vi syns det er passende å gi denne jobben til et barn. Barnearbeid bør inntreffe i særskilte tilfeller, men når trillebåra blir så full at den blir vanskelig å flytte, må mannen i huset trå til. Og han er så lei at han aller helst vill kappe ned hele det gamle epletreet. Men i mitt livssyn er trær hellige, så det er bare å krumme ryggen å plukke på, vel. Fin trim...

Motivet for dette innleggetble jeg gjort oppmerksom på da fine jenter satt i sofaen min og gaula "Kodakmoment", og pekte ut av den åpne utgangsdøra. Det er kanskje ikke like spennende kveldslys på disse bildene som det var da, men et typisk flatt overskya høstlys. Trillebåra til han farfar har i allefall blitt foreviga!




          Lilla vitaminer   

I går gjorde jeg et  kupp hos Home and Cottage. Tror det er yndlingsbutikken min for tida. Fargene og materialene er så fine. Love it! Flaks for meg så fant jeg en kode på bloggen deres som ga meg 25% rabatt, og da klinka jeg til og kjøpte to store lilla tepper. Et til stua og et til til spisestua. Så blir det en slags helhet i stuene da!



Det ble en smule mørkere enn vanlig, men gud så praktisk å ikke ha lyst teppe da. Lupinene er blitt luka og satt inn. De er i ferd med å spre seg i hagen litt mer enn jeg setter pris på.



Små rom, men høyt under taket! Det kunne vært undertittelen på bloggen min, egentlig :o) for sånn er det jo her hos oss.




Her er helgens gjøremål. En vegg i stua skal tapetseres, har fått melding om at tapeten har kommet. Jeg har revet ned en lengde som syns bak blomstene her. Får dra ned resten etterpå. Går fort å lime opp tapet heldigvis.


GOD FREDAG!

          Why is some medicine less effective on women? Over 75% of lab animals are male.   

Men.

‌'Sup, totally natural group of friends captured candidly. Photo via iStock.‌

We have it pretty good. Especially when it comes to our health.

Not only do we get to write the health care legislation...

‌Hell yeah. Photo by Yuri Gripas/Getty Images.‌

...but increasingly, we're getting all the good medical treatment.

We can thank lab animals for this — and the researchers who study them.

For a long time, researchers believed that male animals were better for trials of new medicine.

It was widely assumed that hormone cycles in females would screw up the results.

As a result, currently, over 75% of all lab animals are male.

‌The problem with lady mice is it seems you can't experiment on 'em without them getting all in their feeeeelings. Amiright? Photo by China Photos/Getty Images.‌

The problem is, when you test primarily on male animals, you're making medicine that's more likely to be effective for, well, men.

At least, that's what a recent study found.

According to a report in New Scientist, researcher Natasha Karp and a team from the U.K.'s Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute studied tens of thousands of mice of both sexes. They found that when you switch off genes in male mice, the mice express different traits then when you switch off the same genes in female mice.

If genes express themselves differently depending on the sex of the animal, the researchers found, so do some genetic diseases.

Gene therapy: rad as hell. Photo by Eric Piermont/AFP/Getty Images.‌

The team concluded that "drugs optimized for male animals may be less effective in females, or even cause harm." Of the 10 drugs that were pulled from the market between 1997 and 2001, they explained, eight were riskier for women.

Male animal-bias also means drugs that work better for women might not even make it into testing to begin with.

As with the debate over what constitutes an "essential" health care benefit (according to some hi-larious U.S. senators, mammograms shouldn't), when it comes to "who constitutes a full human," it appears men are the considered default setting, while women are an afterthought.

‌We're the default! We're the default! Photo via iStock.‌

It's a pretty sweet gig for us men.

The thing is, women are half of us. We like them.

As fully formed human beings with lives, free will, hopes, dreams, and so on, it'd be nice if medicine worked better on them when they got diseases.

There's been some progress toward making medical experiments more equitable, at least where human subjects are concerned.

Clinical trials (on humans) used to involve pretty much no women. Now most are 30-40% female, though that still means women are underrepresented.

This wax head in an MRI machine is genderless, but hey, a woman is putting it there! Photo by Jack Taylor/Getty Images.‌

Thanks to efforts of researchers like Karp and her team, we now know we need to extend that progress to the animal kingdom as well.

"Unless there’s a really good reason not to, we should be using both sexes in biomedical research," Karp told New Scientist.

Male animals, she argued, have traits just as particular as female hormone cycles that make them similarly varied from an ideal "norm."

Ultimately, more comprehensive research benefits us all — men and women.

Better studies lead to more effective medicine, which leads to less sickness and sadness all around.

That's the hope anyway.

The animals of both genders who turn out to help us out with this project deserve a hearty "thank you."

‌Thanks, buds. Photo via iStock.‌

If we start with equal treatment, we might finally get some equal treatment.

Χάος στη Μόσχα από την «καταιγίδα του αιώνα» -Βροχές και χαλάζι (vid)

Τουλάχιστον 2 άνθρωποι έχασαν τη ζωή τους από τη μεγαλύτερη καταιγίδα που έπληξε τη Μόσχα εδώ και πάνω από 90 χρόνια με κατακλυσμιαίες βροχές και σφοδρή χαλαζόπτωση.

Ένας άνδρας κεραυνοβολήθηκε στην ευρύτερη περιοχή της ρωσικής πρωτεύουσας, πολλοί άνθρωποι τραυματίστηκαν από πτώσεις δέντρων, ενώ δεκάδες πτήσεις αναβλήθηκαν ή ματαιώθηκαν.

Σύμφωνα με μετεωρολόγους η Μόσχα είχε να δει τέτοια καταιγίδα εδώ και σχεδόν έναν αιώνα καθώς μέσα σε λίγες ώρες έπεσαν 20 χιλιοστά βροχής. Ο περιφερεικός σιδηρόδρομος τέθηκε προσωρινα εκτός λειτουργίας λόγω πτώσης δέντρου στις ράγες, ενώ πάνω από 4.000 νοικοκυριά έμειναν για κάποιο διάστημα χωρίς ηλεκτρικό ρεύμα.

Η μετεωρολογική υπηρεσία είχε προειδοποιήσει από την Πέμπτη για ακραία καιρικά φαινόμενα κι ότι η επερχόμενη καταιγίδα ίσως να ήταν η χειρότερη που έπληξε τη Μόσχα από το 1923. Στα τέλη Μαϊου μια άλλη σφοδρή καταιγίδα προκάλεσε το θάνατο 18 ανθρώπων και τον τραυματισμό δεκάδων ακόμη.

Ρώσοι επιστήμονες και ειδικά μετεωρολογικά κέντρα στην ευρωπαϊκή πλευρά της αχανούς χώρας προειδοποιούν με συνεχή έκτακτα δελτία τον πληθυσμό, ότι η Μόσχα αναμένει σούπερ καταιγίδα «βιβλικών διαστάσεων», κατά την οποία θα πέσει τόσο νερό που έχει να εμφανιστεί εδώ και τουλάχιστον 50 έτη.

Οι μετεωρολόγοι προειδοποιούν και για πιθανή πτώση χαλαζιού μεγάλου μεγέθους . Οι ρωσικές αρχές της πρωτεύουσας, έθεσαν σε κινητοποίηση όλες τις υπηρεσίες και ανακοίνωσαν ότι «οι επιχειρήσεις κοινής ωφέλειας και οι υπηρεσίες έκτακτης ανάγκης θα είναι σε ενεργοποίηση πολύ πριν.

«Το Twitter δημοσιεύει φωτογραφίες, από το επικείμενο σύστημα καταιγίδας, που ομοιάζει με βιβλικές πλημμύρες της Παλαιάς Διαθήκης», γράφει το περιοδικό Tjournal. «Η καταιγίδα κυριολεκτικά θα κατέβει στα χαμηλότερα επίπεδα της στρατόσφαιρας φτάνοντας τα εντεκάμιση με δώδεκα χιλιάδες μέτρα,» , δήλωσε ο κορυφαίος ειδικός επί του καιρού, Eugene Tishkovets.

«Η κορυφή της τροπικής καταιγίδας γιγαντιαίων διαστάσεων θα συμβεί το επόμενο διάστημα των επόμενων ωρών μέχρι το βράδυ γεμίζοντας με νερό την πρωτεύουσα παντού. Ο κίνδυνος ελλοχεύει για σημαντικές σημαντικές πλημμύρες σε , σήραγγες και ούτω καθεξής», δήλωσε ο ίδιος. Μετεωρολόγοι αναφέρουν ότι οι βροχοπτώσεις θα είναι πρωτόγνωρες ακόμη και για την Μόσχα , με θυελλώδης ριπές ανέμου που θα φτάσουν τα είκοσι μέτρα ανά δευτερόλεπτο με συνεχείς βροντές και αστραπές . Δεν αποκλείεται ακόμα να πέσει και χοντρό χαλάζι.

«Σύμφωνα με τις προβλέψεις του καιρού (Κρατικός Οργανισμός» οι προβλέψει για σειρά από ακραίες καιρικές συνθήκες μέσα στις επόμενες 1-2 ώρες, διατηρούνται για μια ακόμη ημέρα από το βράδυ της 30ης Ιουνίου και την 1η Ιουλίου στη Μόσχα, η οποία αναμένεται να δεχθεί βροχή, καταιγίδα, χαλάζι, κατά τη διάρκεια μιας θυελλώδους καταιγίδας με νοτιοανατολικούς ανέμους 15-20 m / s», ανακοίνωσε το ρωσικό Υπουργείο Έκτακτων Καταστάσεων .


          Die Katar-Krise erinnert an die Balkan-Krise vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg - droht am Arabischen Golf eine Katastrophe?   
  • Die Katar-Krise erinnert auf den ersten Blick an die Krisen auf dem Balkan vor Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges

  • Saudi-Arabien und seine Verbündeten haben dem Emirat ein unerfüllbares Ultimatum gestellt

  • Wie groß ist die Gefahr, dass auch aus dem diplomatischem Konflikt am Persischen Golf ein offener Krieg wird?


Ein kleines Land, das Extremisten unterstützt. Eine regionale Großmacht, die dieses Land mit harten Forderungen unter Druck setzt. Die Gegenspieler der Großmacht, die sich opportun auf die Seite des so "unterdrückten" kleinen Landes schlagen. Und eine Weltmacht, die der regionalen Großmacht einen Blankoscheck ausstellt.

Am Beginn dieser Ereigniskette stirbt ein österreichischer Kronprinz im serbischen Sarajevo. An ihrem Ende beginnt der Erste Weltkrieg.

So dramatisch ist die Lage in Katar noch nicht. Doch die Krise am Arabischen Golf erinnert auf den ersten Blick stark an die Krise auf dem Balkan im Jahr 1914, die eine Weltkatastrophe auslöste.

Handelt es sich bei dem Konflikt zwischen den arabischen Golfstaaten und dem kleinen Emirat also noch um einen diplomatischen Schlagabtausch? Oder ist die Katar-Krise der Auftakt zu einem neuen Krieg im Nahen Osten?

In Katar wie auf dem Balkan: Ein trügerischer Frieden



"Ganz auszuschließen sind militärische Konsequenzen nicht", sagte der Autor und Nahost-Experte Udo Steinbach der HuffPost.

Gerade das aggressive Auftreten Saudi-Arabiens unter dem neuen und außenpolitisch unerfahrenen Kronprinz Mohammed bin Salman sei Anlass zur Sorge. "Wer einen so törichten Krieg vom Zaun bricht, wie den im Jemen, dem könnte man auch einen in Katar zutrauen", sagte Steinbach.

Und so könnte für die Katar-Krise gelten, was der Cambridge-Historiker Christopher Clarke in seinem Buch "Die Schlafwandler" über den Beginn des Ersten Weltkrieges schrieb: Ihm zufolge war "der Kriegsausbruch eine Tragödie, kein Verbrechen“.

Paranoia habe damals die Handlungen aller Akteure beherrscht. "Die Krise, die im Jahr 1914 zum Krieg führte, war die Frucht einer gemeinsamen politischen Kultur", schrieb Clarke.

Wieder kommt es auf einen Kronprinzen an



Diese mag am Arabischen Golf zwar eine andere sein, als im Europa des 20. Jahrhunderts. Doch auch sie ist von Konflikten und Gewalt geprägt - und so könnten sich auch die Staaten auf der arabischen Halbinsel auf einem langen, schlafwandlerischem Weg hinein in einen Krieg befinden.

Wieder wird es auf einen Kronprinzen ankommen. Der saudische Thronfolger Mohammed bin Salman führt einen brutalen Krieg im Jemen, er gilt als unberechenbar - und hat die Macht, sich Katar mit Gewalt und Blutvergießen einzuverleiben.

Wer sollte ihn daran hindern?

Zumal die Saudis die Haltung der USA in der Krise völlig falsch interpretieren würden, wie Udo Steinbach der HuffPost sagte. Nach dem Motto, "wenn die gegen den Iran sind, dann werden sie schon auf unserer Seite sein."

Es ist verständlich, dass dieser Eindruck in Saudi-Arabien entstehen konnte. Schließlich kam US-Präsident Donald Trump zu seinem ersten Auslandsbesuch ausgerechnet nach Riad, schwang mit der Königsfamilie die Säbel - und vereinbarte einen Waffendeal in Milliardenhöhe.

Der Hintergrund des Konflikts: Die ewige Rivalität zwischen Iranern und Saudis



"Der Trump-Besuch in Riad hat dazu geführt, dass Saudi-Arabien sich ermutigt fühlt, eine härtere Politik zu fahren - und härter gegen Katar vorzugehen", sagte Sebastian Sons, Experte für die Golfregion bei der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Auswärtige Politik, der HuffPost.

Der eigentliche Konflikt in der Katar-Krise ist für Sons jedoch ein anderer. "Im Hintergrund der Krise verbirgt sich die Rivalität zwischen dem Iran und Saudi-Arabien, die sich in den letzten Jahren hochgeschaukelt hat", sagte er. "Für Saudi-Arabien ist jeder, der sich nicht offen zu ihnen bekennt, sondern zum Iran, ein Feind."

In diesem Fall ist das Katar, das mit dem Iran enge Wirtschaftsbeziehungen pflegt - die beiden Länder betreiben zusammen das größte Gasfeld der Welt. Hinzu kommt laut Sons eine persönliche Fehde zwischen dem saudischen Kronprinzen Mohammed bin Salman und dem katarischen Emir.

Die Forderungen der Golfstaaten an Katar seien deshalb Maximalforderungen, die das Land niemals erfüllen könnte. "Katar kann Al Jazeera schließen, kann die Kontakte zu den Muslimbrüdern kappen und Terrorunterstützer aus dem Land werfen", sagte Sons der HuffPost. "Die Verbindungen zum Iran aber, die kann das Land nicht beenden."

Lassen die Golfstaaten, angeführt von Saudi-Arabien, Katar mit ihrem Ultimatum also ins Messer laufen, so wie es das Kaiserreich Österreich-Ungarn zu Beginn des Ersten Weltkrieges mit den Serben tat?

"Wir haben es auf allen Seiten mit Populisten zu tun"



Nein, glauben zumindest die beiden Experten Udo Steinbach und Sebastian Sons. Zwar könne man eine Eskalation des Konflikts nicht ausschließen und auch die Intentionen der Golfstaaten seien nicht vollständig klar - und doch sei eine militärische Auseinandersetzung unwahrscheinlich.

Aus großer Entfernung ähnele die Situation am Golf zwar der auf dem Balkan vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg, gab Steinbach dazu. "Doch Saudi-Arabien und der Iran, diese Region ist nicht so zerspalten wie der Balkan damals." Zwar spielten nationalistische Interessen auch in der Katar-Krise eine Rolle - doch hätten die Konfliktparteien schlicht zuviel zu verlieren, als dass sie einen Krieg beginnen würden.

"Ein Zerfall der Ölkartels durch einen militärischen Konflikt, das wäre fatal für alle Seiten", sagte Steinbach der HuffPost. "Für Saudi-Arabien und die Golf-Staaten, für Katar - und auch für die internationale Gemeinschaft."

Und auch Sebastian Sons ist sich sicher: Weder die Araber, noch die Iraner oder die USA seien an einem offenen Konflikt interessiert. "Wir haben es auf allen Seiten mit Populisten zu tun", sagte Sons der HuffPost. "Sie schlagen Profit daraus, Feindbilder zu schaffen." Das sei in der Türkei so, in gewissem Maße im Iran - und in Saudi-Arabien ganz sicher.

Von allen Parteien in dem Konflikt werde versucht, "Fakten und Realitäten zu schaffen, um die eigene Macht zu zementieren." Die Katar-Krise sei am Ende also eine adhoc-Situation, die es nun eben zu lösen gelte.

Es bleibt zu hoffen, dass dies auf friedliche Weise geschieht. Anders als im Jahr 1914.

          Frau Merkel interessierte seit ihrem Aufstieg in der BRD CDU nur eines: Ihre eigene „Karriere“ und dabei ging sie sehr planvoll vor.   
Ihre salbungsvollen Worte zum Tod von Helmut Kohl....geschenkt. 
Nicht mehr als Worthülsen, der „political correctness“ und der damit so häufig verbundenen Negierung von Fakten in dieser BRD geschuldet.

Schauen wir uns den systematischen Aufstieg des Nobody's aus der kommunistischen DDR in der CDU einmal an:

Die ZEIT schrieb dazu:

 Aufstand gegen Kohl: Ein Jahrzehnt Merkel-Putsch . Als der Aufstieg einer Außenseiterin begann: Vor zehn Jahren emanzipierte sich Angela Merkel via FAZ von Helmut Kohl - ein kalkulierter Affront. Ohne diesen Artikel wäre Angela Merkel vermutlich nicht Parteichefin der CDU geworden – und somit wohl auch nicht Kanzlerin. Ihr Gastbeitrag, publiziert am 22. Dezember 1999 in der Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung , war ein klarer, mutiger Aufruf zur Trennung von Helmut Kohl .
Der Artikel und seine Vorgeschichte .  Helmut Kohl hat "der Partei Schaden zugefügt", schrieb Merkel damals. Es sei nicht hinnehmbar, dass er "in einem rechtswidrigen Vorgang" sein Wort "über Recht und Gesetz" stelle. Für die CDU bedeute das, dass man sich von Kohl lösen müsse. "Nur auf einem wahren Fundament kann Zukunft entstehen". Die Partei müsse nun "laufen lernen, sich zutrauen, in Zukunft auch ohne (...) Helmut Kohl (...) den Kampf mit dem politischen Gegner aufnehmen".
Die Worte „rechtswidriger Vorgang“und er, Kohl, stelle sein Wort „über Recht und Gesetz“

klingen aus heutiger Sicht und unter Berücksichtigung der Eigenmächtigkeit von Frau Merkel angesichts der „Flüchtlingsfrage“ wie Hohn.

Müsste sich Frau Merkel verantworten und nähme sie ihre eigenen damaligen Worte „Nur auf einem wahren Fundament kann Zukunft entstehen“ ernst, müsste sich wenigstens Ihre Partei, die CDU, von Frau Merkel distanzieren.

Merkel war also die „Königsmöderin“ und die CDU Mitglieder, die sich vor Helmut Kohl stellten,
wurden alle nach ihrer „Machtergreifung“, wenn man das Wort der ZEIT vom „Putsch“ weiterführt,
mit Bravour und Grandezza entmachtet.

Dass Frau Merkel aufgrund der Verquickung von Wolfgang Schäuble in eine weitere Spendenaffaire
an die Spitze der CDU gelangte, ist bekannt.

Aber damit war sie noch nicht am Ziel ihrer Wünsche angekommen.

Was bei Kohl so phantastisch funktioniert hatte, wendete sie einige Jahre später erneut an.

Frau Merkel fiel dem damaligen Bundeskanzler Gerhard Schröder SPD in den Rücken, in dem sie einen namentlichen Beitrag in der Washington Post veröffentlichte.

Der SPIEGEL  schrieb damals:

Merkels Bückling vor Bush Angela Merkel hat für einen handfesten Eklat gesorgt: In einem Beitrag für die "Washington Post" stimmte die CDU-Chefin in den Kriegsgesang der US-Regierung ein, wetterte gegen die Bundesregierung - und brach damit nach Ansicht der SPD eine Tradition deutscher Politik. …..Mit dem Angriff auf die Bundesregierung aber ließ es Merkel nicht bewenden. Die Gefahr durch den Irak sei nicht fiktiv, sondern real, schrieb die Vorsitzende von CDU und Unionsfraktion. Europa müsse seiner Verantwortung gerecht werden, indem es mit den USA zusammenarbeite. Worin die Gefahr für die USA und insbesondere für Deutschland konkret bestehe, mochte sie allerdings nicht verraten. ….. 


Und die Frankfurter Allgemeine notierte am 20.02.2003

Krise am Golf . Merkel attackiert Schröder in amerikanischer Zeitung . Kurz vor ihrem USA-Besuch hat sich CDU-Chefin Angela Merkel klar von der Irak-Politik der Bundesregierung abgegrenzt. „Schröder spricht nicht für alle Deutschen“, schrieb Merkel in einem Beitrag für die „Washington Post“. ….Im Vorfeld ihres Besuchs in den Vereinigten Staaten hat CDU-Chefin Angela Merkel den Irak-Kurs von Bundeskanzler Gerhard Schröder (SPD) in einer amerikanischen Zeitung scharf angegriffen. In einem am Donnerstag veröffentlichten Beitrag für die „Washington Post“ kritisierte sie besonders Schröders strikte Absage an den Einsatz von Gewalt gegen den irakischen Machthaber Saddam Hussein. ….

Merkel hat für ihren Aufstieg und ihre Karriere zielbewusst  alle Knöpfe betätigt.
Im Mai 2005 war Merkel in Rottach Egern bei der „Elitengemeinschaft“ , im Juli 2005 kam das Misstrauensvotum gegen den amtierenden Bundeskanzler Schröder und im November 2005 wurde Merkel sehr knapp Kanzlerin der BRD.

Interessante Aspekte des unaufhaltsamen Aufstiegs von Frau Merkel und wie sie innerhalb von 14 Monaten von einer verantwortlichen Person für kommunistische Propaganda bei der DDR-Jugend zur christdemokratischen Ministerin für Jugend in der Bundesrepublik gewandelt hat, finden sie hier 

Eine Opportunistin besonderer Prägung.
Auf was muss Deutschland und die europäischen Staaten einschliesslich die USA gefasst sein, wenn Frau Merkel eine weitere Legislaturperiode an der Macht bleibt, wenn sie selbst erläutert, „dass man nach den Wahlen nicht davon ausgehen kann, dass das auch
passiert, was vor den Wahlen versprochen wurde“ oder etwa wenn sie sagt, "Die Deutschen haben keinen Rechtsanspruch auf Demokratie und soziale Marktwirtschaft auf alle Ewigkeit." oder auch am „Freitag, 13. November 2009 : "Die Nationalstaaten müssen Kompetenzen an multinationale Organisationen abgeben" und damit scheint sie u.a. explizit die EU zu meinen. 
Dass sich viele europäische Staaten einer Bevormundung durch Frau Merkel widersetzen, ist  klar erkennbar und auch sehr verständlich. 

 

 
          Kann Angela Merkel nicht wenigstens einmal auf dem Boden von Fakten bleiben?   
Warum muss die politisch vollverantwortliche Bundeskanzlerin immer aus der Rolle fallen und alles, was sie tut maßlos übertreiben?
Ist es ihr nicht mehr möglich zu realisieren, dass in demokratischen Staaten Präsidenten wechseln?

Gleichgültig ob sie selbstherrlich die deutschen und damit alle europäischen Grenzen öffnet, die ganze Welt dazu einlädt in das "große" und "reiche" Europa einzuwandern, und sich damit zur "mächtigstens Frau Europas" stilisiert, oder ihr Mißfallen darüber äussert, dass der jetzige amerikanische Präsident sich in erster Linie seinem Volk gegenüber verpflichtet fühlt, sobald ihr jemand zeigt, wo sie in der Rangordnung steht, ist sie beleidigt und fühlt sich zur Kritik an allem und jeden berufen.

Wie war das noch mit Saudi-Arabien?

Was halten Sie von dem Hig Tech-Grenzzaun um Saudiarabien, der von Deutschland und EADS gebaut wurde und weiter wird? Um ihn bauen zu können, mussten erst einmal Dörfer weggebombt werden, weil die Anwohner nicht wollten, dass der Zaun gebaut wird. Deutsche Polizei wurde gleich „mitverkauft“.
Die BRD befindet sich nicht im Krieg, jedenfalls nicht, wenn man von der Leyen glauben kann.http://www.dw.com/de/saudi-arabien-sichert-seine-grenzen/a-17409103


Schauen Sie das Video ab 8:00 an, dann sehen Sie inwieweit die BRD in Saudi-Arabien verstrickt ist. Frau Merkel, als politisch Verantwortliche der BRD baut Grenzzäune.....in Saudi-Arabien.


Und soviel zum Grenzzaun nach Mexiko, bei dem Präsident Trump nur das vervollständigen will, was seine Vorgänger, auch Barrak Hussein Obama, begonnen haben.

Hinter der parteiübergreifenden Mauer

von Manlio Dinucci
Während die westliche Presse die Erweiterung der Trennmauer zwischen den Vereinigten Staaten und Mexiko unwiderruflich verurteilt, erinnert uns Manlio Dinucci, dass sie nicht von einem protektionistischen Willen stammt, sondern ganz im Gegenteil, von der Globalisierungs-Politik.

Diese Konstruktion ist ein überparteiliches Projekt, angefangen von Bill Clinton, und von George Bush Jr. und Barack Obama weiter verfolgt. Dinucci stellt fest, dass es nicht die Wand selbst ist, die katastrophale soziale Auswirkungen auf Mexiko verursachte, sondern der NAFTA-Vertrag, der eine Brücke zwischen den Unterzeichnerstaaten sein sollte; ein Vertrag, dessen Zweck war, den normalen Prozess der Auslagerung zu verstärken, mit der Gefahr die Armut in Mexiko und in den Vereinigten Staaten auszubreiten.
 http://www.voltairenet.org/article195110.html
 

Aber das erwähnen die Lügenmedien der BRD selbstverständlich nicht.
Hörte man nur teilweise das an, was die siebengescheite Anne Will am 28.05.2017 moderierte, kann es einen bei soviel Unwahrheit einfach nur noch grausen.
Sind diese Leute noch ganz bei Trost, dass sie nur Bullshit in die Wohnzimmer der Deutschen kippen? Glauben die wirklich, dass die Fernsehzuschauer derartig dämlich sind und sich nicht informieren?
Ganz beiläufig bemerkt, der göttliche SPD Kanzlerkandidat aus der Brüsseler EU, Martin Schulz, ebenfalls einer, der undifferenziert auf den amerikanischen Präsidenten eindrischt. Umso schlimmer, dass die Obamafreundin, Angela Merkel, jetzt in den Trumpdreschkanon einstimmt, denn sie kennt die Sachlage genau und stellt auf einmal eine „Unzuverlässigkeit“ von „Freunden“ fest, nur weil diese amerikanische Interessen vertreten .


Hätte Angela Merkel die Rede von Chef des privaten US-Geheimdienstes Stratfor, George Friedman, zu ende gehört, wüsste sie, dass Amerikaner nicht mit einer EU verhandeln, sondern nur mit europäischen Ländern. 


Was wirft Frau Merkel Präsident Trump demzufolge vor?
Oder erzählt sie wieder einmal Propaganda?


Hören Sie mal das Video an, ab 3:51 

Screenshot



Die Bundesregierung hatte kürzlich erst verkündet, dass sie Saudi-Arabien erstmal keine Waffen liefert. Lange mussten die Saudis aber nicht traurig sein. Trump sprang großzügig ein und Merkel versprach dem saudischen Königreich als Gegenleistung die Ausbildung des Militärs durch die Bundeswehr.
Aber bereits vor Jahren war Trump von Obama getoppt worden, der einen tiefen Bückling vor der saudi-arabischen Führung vollzog.



Diese verlogene Heuchelei der deutschen „Eliten“ ist einfach lächerlich.

Wenn die politisch Verantwortlichen der BRD derartig geistig abbauen und intellektuell nicht in der Lage sind, Situationen zu überschauen und entsprechend zu handeln, sind sie mitnichten geeignet, die politischen Geschicke dieses Landes zu entscheiden.

Frau Merkel soll sich um die BRD kümmern und nicht um ungelegte amerikanische Eier, zu diesem Zweck ist es angebracht, dass sie die laut kläffenden  Kettenhunde in den BRD Medien zurückpfeift, denn Bashing gegen den gegenwärtigen amerikanischen Präsidenten ist mit Sicherheit, wie Angela Merkel es stets bei allen unpassenden Gelegenheiten postuliert, "nicht hilfreich", auch wenn möglicherweise anderweitig erwähnt zwischen ihr und dem Expräsidenten anlässlich des Kirchentages, wo wahrscheinlich nicht das Blockflötenspielen gegen Terrorismus geübt oder gar besprochen wurde.

Die Zunft der "evangelischen Kirche", vertreten u.a. von der wegen Trunkenheit am Steuer
zurückgetretenen  Ex-Bischöfin , Frau Käßmann, zu der auch Frau Merkel von ihres Vaters Seite gehört, vertritt ja wohl eine andere Agenda, als musizieren.

Ach ja, einen hab ich noch:

Schulz will sich Trump in den Weg stellen


...noch einer von der "Elite", leidend unter gnadenloser Selbstüberschätzung. Das muss schon pathologisch sein.

 

 


          "Die Islamisierung der Gefühle: Diesmal sind wir Hasenohr " .    


Martin Schulz schweigt diesmal. Abgetaucht wie bei der Vorstellung des allerallerbesten SPD-Programms seit Willy Brandt, lässt der Kanzlerkandidat der SPD erstmals eine Gelegenheit verstreichen, seinen üblichen Terrortrauertweet zu verklappen: "Ich bin schockiert über den Anschlag in ...", hieß es bei Schulz üblicherweise, als der gescheiterte EU-Parlamentspräsident noch glaubte, er könne irgendwen davon überzeugen, dass etwas anderes ihn treibt als kalte Machtgier.

Diesmal aber gibt Schulz dem Terror keine Chance. Und er ist nicht allein. Rundherum in Europa läuft in den Stunden nach der Ermordung von Kindern und Jugendlichen beim Konzert eines Teenie-Stars in Manchester die gewohnte Abwiegelungs- und Solidaritätsroutine wie am Schnürchen. Die bei jedem Trump-Bericht angewidert schauenden Nachrichtensprecher kramen die Leichenbittermiene heraus, die Terrorexperten werden aus dem Keller geholt, junge Praktikanten dürfen herzzerreißende Mitleidstweets in die Kamera vorlesen."Mutmaßlich" ist der Terror. Mutmaßlich die Betroffenheit.

Antrainierte Terror-Reflexe


Die mediale Öffentlichkeit hat zwei Jahre nach dem Anschlag auf das Satiremagazin "Charlie Hebdo" in Paris antrainierte Reflexe, die anspringen, wenn der Auslösereiz danach schreit: Kein Entsetzen mehr, keine Fassungslosigkeit, nirgendwo das Gefühl, es geschehe Außerordentliches, Unerhörtes, Niefürmöglichgehaltenes. Sondern achselzuckendes Akzeptieren, wie es die Menschen im Irak, in Afghanistan, im Jemen, in Syrien und in der ganzen arabischen Welt seit Jahrzehnten von den Verhältnissen des Lebens unter der Herrschaft einer auf absoluten gehorsam zielenden Steinzeit-Religion antrainiert bekommen haben.

Dies ist die Welt, und sie ist nun auch die unsere. Die Menge des Terrorgiftes hat die westlichen Gesellschaften immunisiert gegen das Wirkungen des islamistischen Terrors. Nicht mehr die Anschläge sind das Problem, sondern deren Missbrauch durch "die Falschen". Nicht mehr die Toten wiegen schwer, sondern allenfalls deren Instrumentalisierung in Wahlkämpfen. Die Gewöhnung an das Sterben, das mitten in den Alltag bricht, verhärtet die Herzen und es schafft sich seine eigene Wirklichkeit. Niemals mehr hört später von den Tätern, nicht von den Mördern von Paris, nicht von denen von Brüssel, von Budapest, von Nizza, Olando, Hannover, Essen, Würzburg, München oder Ansbach.

Nach der ersten Aufregung folgt die Ermattung und irgendwann ja schon der nächste "Vorfall" (Die Linke). Was willste denn machen? Kannste doch nicht.


Die jugendlichen Fans der Popsängerin Ariana Grande kennen gar keine andere Welt, keine Welt ohne scharfe Sicherheitskontrollen, ohne Antiterror-Poller, ohne Polizei in schusssicheren Westen, ohne Bahnhöfe mit Sicherheitsschleusen. Diese Gegenwart ist ihre, dieses neue Europa das einzige, in dem sie aufgewachsen sind. Terror? Ab und zu passiert es. Ab und zu passieren ja auch Zahnschmerzen. Unwetter. Unglückliche Liebe.

Eine Generation, die keine Sicherheit kennt


Der Blick auf den Kurznachrichtendienst Twitter zeigt am besten, was mit dieser Generation passiert, die keine Unschuld kennt, keine Sicherheit, kein Grundvertrauen in den Menschen, der im Konzert nebenan jubelt, vor einem über die Straße läuft, beim Starbucks als nächster in der Reihe wartet. Dafür aber Solidaritäts- und Pray-for-(Stadt-Land-Fluss)- Meme-Gneratoren, popkulturelle Icons, in denen sich ganze Teen-Fanlager ihrer miteinander geteilten Gefühle versichern. Wie staatliche Behörden europaweit jedes Dorffest mit Betonbarrikaden absperren, so sperren die 15-, 17- und 22-Jährigen ihr Seelenleben durch Verbundenheitsschleifchen mit den Bunny-Ohren aus Ariana Grande's SM-Hasenkostüm vor der Wirklichkeit ab. Das geht fix, irgendwo ist immer ein fingerfertiger Photoshopper, der sich freut, wenn sein Symbolangebot für den akutellen Katastrophenfall auf Facebook die Runde macht.

Eine Generation, für die Furcht und Terror zur normalen Lebenserfahrung gehören, noch bevor sie erwachsen wird. Eine Generation, deren Abende mit "Brennpunkt" und Terrortweets ihre popkulturelle Erlebniswelt prägen. Eine Generation zwischen Sicherheit und Zustrom, zwischen bunt und barbarisch, zwischen offenen Grenzen und offenem Straßenhandel mit Drogen, zwischen veganer Lebensweise und plötzlichem Tod aus archaischen Gründen. Die Älteren haben Angst. Die Jüngeren leben mit ihr.

Während ihnen eine Elite aus Politikern, Wissenschaftlern und Medienarbeitern, die eine unbeschwerte Jugend ohne No-go-Areas, Taschenkontrollen und Röntgenschleusen vor jedem öffentlichen Gebäude erlebt hat und heute in Gated-Communities lebt, einredet, dass "wir" "uns" "unsere Art zu leben nicht aufgeben werden", ist es längst passiert. Die Islamisierung des Abendlandes.

          Aura Colorist   

At first glance, anyone can tell that Aura’s personal style is as exciting and eclectic as her impressive portfolio—with teal running up her dark hair and a pop of mauve lip stain brightening her pout, it’s obvious that Aura lives to play with colors. In fact, she’s made a celebrated career of it. From her humble salon beginnings in Northern Virginia to her recent editorial powerhouse hits for Vogue, W and Marie Claire, the colorist is constantly manifesting her craft and making it her own. “First you have to know the foundation of color, and then you can break all the rules,” said Aura. “Now I can manipulate color to make it do exactly what I want it to do.” Aura, who has been mixing and applying pastels years before it was introduced to the mainstream, is constantly being called on by the best photographers and publications in the industry to think outside the box of standard color formulation in order to achieve the perfect hair hue.

In between celebrity shoots and her time spent behind the chair at Sally Hershberger in New York City, Aura sat down with us to talk about the future of coloring, art as inspiration and a little Lady Gaga.

How did you get your start in the industry?

In the summer of 1992, my mom and I moved from San Diego to Northern Virginia. I was 15 years old and didn’t know anyone, so my mom suggested that I try to get a job to meet people and keep busy during the summer. I went to the local strip mall and applied at every store. I got a job at a salon, but I actually wanted the job at the pet store. I ended up working at that salon all through high school and then followed one of the stylists to another salon in the mall called Frizzles. It was very ‘90s—lots of perms going on—but it was a great job because I met so many interesting people. Virginia has an apprenticeship program that allows you to try your hand at everything—color, blow-outs, perms. I did everything but cut, and I didn’t even have a license. I was lucky because not all states offer that. I realized right away what a rewarding and creative job coloring is and that it was worth getting my license. After high school, I moved to Miami Beach, which always felt like home because my dad lived there, and got my license. My first job out of school was as a color assistant at the high-end salon Stella where I trained under Johanna Stella. The clientele at that salon was insane. Imagine all of the people featured in the W society pages—those were the clients coming into Stella. I assisted there for two years, moved to a new salon when I was 18, and by 21 I was on the floor.

I completely fell in love with coloring when I went to a Bumble & Bumble seminar. The people attending saw coloring as a craft, and I finally felt that I had people to relate to. I moved to New York City because I always knew I wanted to do editorial. Eventually, I was able to create this career for myself because it’s what I wanted to do…I just had to manifest it.

Tell us about one instance when you were inspired by something and used that inspiration to create an entire look.

I’m constantly inspired by everything and always use references, which I think is really important in this industry. In the hair world, I am inspired by Lena Ott, Tina Outen, Odile Gilbert, Bob Recine and Dennis Lanni.

One instance that comes to mind was when I used French Impressionist paintings to create pastel-colored hair for a show. The show’s theme was fusion, and the key stylist, Eugene Souleiman, wanted random spots of candy-colored tones erratically placed on the hair. The images I referenced matched the color palette I was envisioning, and the end result had a great blotchy feeling, just like the paintings.

You’ve done so many amazing editorial shoots. Which one was the most challenging?

I had the opportunity to do a European McDonald’s advertising campaign, which was shot at Milk Studios about six years ago. I was booked the day of the shoot, so I canceled my entire day and ran over there. The entire experience was crazy. The lineup of people who were working on it were icons—photographer Richard Burbridge, the God of wardrobe styling Bill Mullen, hairstylist Yannick d’Is and makeup artist Mark Carrasquillo. The story showed a male and female throughout all stages of life, which, of course, was translated through the look. I had to change the hair color for each stage. For the guy, we started with a painted surfer look, then used black hair powder for the middle-aged look and finished with a shaved head. The girl started blonde, then I made her red, followed by brown and eventually back to blonde. There were art directors and creative directors from Europe and the U.S., which meant there were many different people to please. There were also time constraints and people asking when I would be done, but color takes time!

What is your creative process when trying brave new looks?

Sometimes I just go for it and other times I visualize the concept and map it out in my head. Most recently, I painted the firebird wig for Lady Gaga’s appearance on the Howard Stern Show, which was then styled by Joey George. The idea was based off of the underlying pigment chart, so I had to make sure each color lined up. I did it freehand, which was pretty intense.

What do you do when a client wants a color that you know won’t work?

With a platinum blonde, I explain to them that it will be too damaging and it won’t turn out to be the color they want. I’m brutally honest. Color is chancey when it’s not right. You could sit there for hours going for platinum and end up with banana yellow.

Any tips for aspiring colorists?

Create a niche for yourself in whatever it is you want to do, and don’t listen to people who try to convince you not to do it. Remember that humility is important and you can’t please everybody. Also, if you make color easy and convenient to your clients’ lifestyles, they will keep coming back.

How can stylists use Instagram to their advantage?

I get so many clients from my Instagram @auracolorist. I just started posting images that I like or I believe in to showcase my tastes. I got lucky in that people started writing about my Instagram, which got me more and more followers.

Through Instagram I work on my creative direction and concepting, which is a direction I would like to move toward in the future. I love sharing with fellow colorists and hairdressers because there’s nothing better than teaching, inspiring and giving ideas. Of course, I’m also inspired by what others are doing as well.

What is your favorite color?

I have so many. It depends on the time and moment and mood—I have a color for every mood. But I do love a really rich teal, like a blue/green combo.

What would you be if you weren’t a colorist?

An art therapist or rock star…if I could sing. When I was a kid wanted to be an actress/model, but I was never tall enough.

What is your favorite Oribe product?

I love the Conditioner for Beautiful Color.

What do you think the future of hair color looks like?

The really great thing about what’s happening with color is that people aren’t as afraid of experimenting with something fun and different. Expressing yourself is the trend right now, so I imagine that idea will be even more evolved in the future. As far as the technology behind color products, I think we are working toward color products that will lift more without damaging, which will give us a lot more power and help the industry in a positive way.


          Tomo Jidai   
Tokyo-born, Brooklyn-based Tomo Jidai is known for his cutting-edge work with magazines like Interview, including a cover shoot with Mia Wasikowska and a racy editorial with Kendall Jenner. His love for styling started at a young age, thanks to living next door to an established hair salon, and since then, Jidai has worked with top photographers Craig McDean and Steven Klein, and top stylist Karl Templer. We spoke with Jidai about the most memorable moments of his career, his advice on editorial styling and what type of hair look he likes for fall.

What interested you in becoming a hairstylist?


Next door to my family home in Tokyo was one the most famous hair salons in the city. I started getting my hair cut there when I was five years old, and one time they permed my hair. After I saw how much my look changed, the hair world really started to influence me.

Once I finished high school, I went to college to study hairdressing, but I wasn’t sure about a future working in salons. So after college, I moved to London to study further in a Vidal Sassoon diploma course. My teacher there showed me his session work and introduced me to Eugene Souleiman, whom I went on to assist for many years.

How did you get your "big break" in hair?


In 2011, I was able to work with my heroes, Fabien Baron and Karl Templer, on a Calvin Klein underwear shoot. That was a dream come true. It was one of those career-defining moments that I’ve worked so hard to achieve.


Any favorite shoots or moments on set?


I have had many amazing opportunities in my career but the most recent was a December 2013 story for Interview called ‘New West’ with Craig McDean. It was a braided hair story where I used the textures of different braids to achieve the western theme of the editorial. I’ve used braids for other editorials in Numéro and British Vogue, among others. I love working with braids because they have such a classic look, but are so versatile as well. Shooting for Interview was a long-time dream of mine and since the story, I have become a regular contributor for the magazine.

Where's the best place you've ever traveled for a shoot? For fun?


For a shoot location, the luxury resort Amangiri in Arizona was amazing. But I had the most fun in Bodrum, Turkey.

What do you feel have been the greatest accomplishments in your styling career?


Probably working on Prada’s menswear campaign, Calvin Klein campaigns and my regular work with Interview magazine. I’m proud to be part of these shoots as there aren’t many Japanese hairstylists working at this high level and with such amazing teams.

How does hairstyling differ in Tokyo, London and New York City?


Very much so. People in Tokyo appreciate kawaii (the qualities of cute and pretty in Japanese culture) and are really into color and permed hair. London is all about being cool and having edgy color. The attitude in New York is more grown up, simple and clean.

What inspires you?


I take inspiration from a lot of things: film, music, art, particularly manga (Japanese comics), but also conversations with other people.

What is your go-to product?


I love the Dry Texturizing Spray because it adds workable texture and volume into the hair.

What is your hair philosophy?


“Keep it simple.”


Who are some of your hair icons and mentors?


My mother is my main style icon. In the ’80s she was always so fashionable and put together. Also, the Japanese hairstylist Yusuke Suga was a big inspiration to me when I began my career. Of course, my mentor is the master Eugene Souleiman. I have so much to thank him for.

Do you have any advice for those who want to get into editorial styling?


Practice your craft, research to keep your work fresh, find your mentor and believe in your dream.

What do you do for fun when you're not on set?


My son keeps me busy when I am not working. I also love to cook Japanese food for my friends.

What do you like most for fall hair?


A loose lower ponytail. It’s very simple. Brush your hair, spray section by section with Dry Texturizing Spray and then lightly shake it out with your hand. Make the low ponytail, and once you’ve done this, use your fingers and Thick Dry Finishing Spray to make it a little undone.

What do you still hope to accomplish in your styling career?


I hope I get to keep on working with the great creatives and talent I have already had the chance to work with so far in my career. There is so much more I want to achieve, but I’m very grateful for what I have been able to do up until now. In the future, I would love to be a consultant to a hair brand and I have always wanted to shoot for the iconic Pirelli Calendar.

What interested you in becoming a hairstylist?


I came to hair late in life, having trained in the performing arts and then singing for some years in a Latin jazz band. Hair and makeup had been a part of my performing arts course and, after a while with the band, I realized it was with hair that my true interest lay. When I went for my interview to start an apprenticeship with the Harringtons Hairdressing Group, I remember feeling really excited about a career in hairdressing and all of the different avenues that it could take you down, from running a busy column to styling hair for film, music videos and education.

You've been Lana Del Rey's hairstylist for quite some time. How did you come up with her signature Old Hollywood look?


Working with Lana for the past three years has been one amazing visual journey. She has a real love for Old Hollywood glamour, and a lot of the images she particularly loved were of Hollywood icons like Lauren Bacall, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Jackie Kennedy. So the look came together really organically.


What is it like consistently working one-on-one with an artist for so many years?


It’s every hairdresser’s dream to have a regular client. There’s nothing better than building up a clientele who come to see you every six weeks. In all honesty, working with an artist as prolific as Lana was an absolute dream come true. Whenever there is a new campaign or video shoot, the most important part of the creative process is what is going to evoke the mood that the artist is looking to communicate.

Is there a difference to the process when it comes to styling for editorials, music videos and live performances?


In my experience, after working in the industry for more than 10 years, it's important to have a different "head" on when styling hair for different events. For example, for a live show, hair needs to move and look real. However, for an editorial, it sometimes doesn’t matter what the back looks like if the shots are front-on portraits. A lot of the time it can be a simple as how much time we have, and that will dictate what I do.

You're going to be a guest educator an upcoming Oribe event in the UK. What are you most excited about to educate other stylists about?


I'm so passionate about education, so this is going to a really exciting chapter. When I was training, I was very lucky to work for a company that supported young hairstylists coming through, and I’m really excited about now being in that place to give back, to help give people confidence and help them take that next step in their career.

Where's the best place you've ever traveled for a shoot? For fun?


For a shoot, it was the Valley of Fire in Nevada. The scenery was amazing and although the heat was intense, the sunsets were the most incredible I have ever seen!

For fun, it has to be Japan. I loved the intensity of Tokyo but the calmness of the Japanese gardens and chasing geishas down the cobbled streets of Kyoto to grab a shot of their hair. The shapes inspire me so much!

What else inspires you?


I have lots of inspirations that have probably all played a part in my career. My inspiration for working hard, believing in myself and learning that we can achieve anything that we set our hearts on comes from my father. In terms of inspiration for my work, this comes from many mediums: walking down the street, watching cult films, looking through art and fashion books.

Who are some of your hair icons and mentors?


I started session assisting the wonderful Eugene Souleiman and Sam McKnight during the shows at London, Milan, Paris and New York fashion weeks. Their calmness, skill and vision were and still continue to inspire me. I also love Julien D'Ys’ work. His approach to hair and the shapes he creates always amaze me. They challenge the perceptions of hairdressing.

Is there a philosophy that you stand by?


To continue working hard and mastering my skills because I believe there is always room to learn and improve.

What are your go-to products?


Dry Texturizing Spray is an essential in everyone’s kit! Also, Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse, Original Pomade and Superfine Strong Hair Spray.

What do you do for fun when you're not on set?


Hanging out with good friends, family and my dogs. Trips down to the coast are essential and so is great food!

Can you share some of your upcoming projects?


I have just been made beauty editor for a new fashion magazine called Lujon, run by a dear friend of mine whom I met when he was studying at Central Saint Martins. What I love about the magazine is that it brings lightness and humor to fashion, which we need more of!

Pooled-DNA sequencing identifies genomic regions of selection in Nigerian isolates of Plasmodium falciparum.

Parasit Vectors. 2017 Jun 29;10(1):320

Authors: Oyebola KM, Idowu ET, Olukosi YA, Awolola TS, Amambua-Ngwa A

Abstract
BACKGROUND: The burden of falciparum malaria is especially high in sub-Saharan Africa. Differences in pressure from host immunity and antimalarial drugs lead to adaptive changes responsible for high level of genetic variations within and between the parasite populations. Population-specific genetic studies to survey for genes under positive or balancing selection resulting from drug pressure or host immunity will allow for refinement of interventions.
METHODS: We performed a pooled sequencing (pool-seq) of the genomes of 100 Plasmodium falciparum isolates from Nigeria. We explored allele-frequency based neutrality test (Tajima's D) and integrated haplotype score (iHS) to identify genes under selection.
RESULTS: Fourteen shared iHS regions that had at least 2 SNPs with a score > 2.5 were identified. These regions code for genes that were likely to have been under strong directional selection. Two of these genes were the chloroquine resistance transporter (CRT) on chromosome 7 and the multidrug resistance 1 (MDR1) on chromosome 5. There was a weak signature of selection in the dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) gene on chromosome 4 and MDR5 genes on chromosome 13, with only 2 and 3 SNPs respectively identified within the iHS window. We observed strong selection pressure attributable to continued chloroquine and sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine use despite their official proscription for the treatment of uncomplicated malaria. There was also a major selective sweep on chromosome 6 which had 32 SNPs within the shared iHS region. Tajima's D of circumsporozoite protein (CSP), erythrocyte-binding antigen (EBA-175), merozoite surface proteins - MSP3 and MSP7, merozoite surface protein duffy binding-like (MSPDBL2) and serine repeat antigen (SERA-5) were 1.38, 1.29, 0.73, 0.84 and 0.21, respectively.
CONCLUSION: We have demonstrated the use of pool-seq to understand genomic patterns of selection and variability in P. falciparum from Nigeria, which bears the highest burden of infections. This investigation identified known genomic signatures of selection from drug pressure and host immunity. This is evidence that P. falciparum populations explore common adaptive strategies that can be targeted for the development of new interventions.

          Bochumer Innenstadt - fünf besondere Plätze statt eines Einkaufszentrums   
Die Stadt möchte die Fußgängerzone erweitern. Die Viktoriastraße vom Husemannplatz bis Rathausplatz soll zur zusätzlichen Einkaufsmeile oder, wie es die Verwaltung formuliert, zu einem „frequenzbringenden Rückgrat der Innenstadt", entwickelt werden (Grundsatzbeschluss Viktoriastraße). Baltz möchte das Erdgeschoss des Telekomblocks zu einem Sporthaus umbauen. Die Justizgebäude am Husemannplatz sollen einem Einkaufszentrum mit 15.000 qm Verkaufsfläche für 5-6 große und 4 Minigeschäfte, ergänzt durch ein Hotel und Büroflächen weichen.

Stadtplanung will mehr Einzelhandelsfläche über die Innenstadt verteilen

2017-07-01-1498915000-5307712-kundenfrequenzen2030.png
Kundenfrequenzen 2030 und Entwicklungsschwerpunkte, Vorschlag STADTGESTALTER

Während in Fachbeiträgen zur Einzelhandelsentwicklung vorgeschlagen wird die Einzelhandelsflächen in den Innenstädten zu konzentrieren und gesund zu schrumpfen (Welt vom 05.06.17), um der abnehmenden Nachfrage aufgrund des zunehmenden Online-Handels Rechnung zu tragen (Welt vom 05.02.17) schlägt das Stadtplanungsamt den umgekehrten Weg vor, noch mehr Einzelhandelsflächen sollen über das Gebiet der Innenstadt verteilt werden.

Doch schon jetzt finden 4.500 qm Verkaufsfläche im SinnLeffers-Gebäude keinen neuen Mieter, auch in der Drehscheibe, der Witteler-Passage und dem Kortumhaus stehen erhebliche Flächen leer. Beim Saturn im Kortumhaus stellen sich Insider nicht mehr die Frage ob, sondern wann er die Innenstadt verlässt.

Folgewirkungen des neuen Einkaufszentrums

2017-07-01-1498915057-5954556-viktorikarreefassade.png
Fassade, geplantes Einkaufszentrum am Husemannplatz

Welche Folgen hat also das neue Einkaufszentrum für die Innenstadt? Das Gebäude, das der Investor geplant hat, lässt sich als einfallslos charakterisieren (Bild Victoria Karree). Das neue Einkaufszentrum soll aussehen wie die übliche Dutzendware, die die Kunden mittlerweile in jeder Stadt der Republik finden. Der Kunde soll vorne in das Center rein gehen, kann dann durch das Gebäude bis in die Junggesellenstraße laufen (Grundriss Victoria Karree). Aber warum sollte er das tun? In der Jungesellenstraße ist nichts, was Kunden interessieren könnte. Die vorliegenden Planungen zeigen ein unambitioniertes, drittklassiges 08/15-Einkaufszentrum, dass keinerlei Kunden aus anderen Städten nach Bochum (zurück) locken wird.

2017-07-01-1498915108-8630033-viktoriakarreegrundriss.png
Grundriss, geplantes Einkaufszentrum am Husemannplatz

Also werden die Kunden, die das neue Einkaufszentrum besuchen an anderer Stelle in der Innenstadt fehlen. Läden, die nach Bochum kommen wollen, gehen in das neue Center, statt in das SinnLeffers-Gebäude, in das Kortumhaus oder die Drehscheibe. Es werden sich an anderen Stellen der Innenstadt Leerstände auftun. Auch Baltz wird mit seinem Sporthaus von der ehemaligen Sparkassengalerie in sein neues Haus am Telekom-Block umziehen.

Das neue Center verhindert zudem Investitionen in die vorhandenen bestehenden Geschäftsimmobilien. Es unterbleiben Investitionen, um die Leerstände, den Anforderungen neuer Geschäfte anzupassen. Die neuen Ketten gehen ins Center, die alten Ladenlokale bleiben leer.

Ein anderes mögliches Szenario, für 5 Jahre funktioniert das Center, danach verliert der Investor das Interesse und es passiert das, was Bochum schon mit Stadtbadgalerie, Sparkassengalerie, Drehscheibe und Gerbercenter erlebt hat. Die Einzelhandelsflächen in den Centern finden keine neuen Mieter mehr, das Center verödet.

In weiten Teilen der Innenstadt fehlt die erforderliche Kundenfrequenz

2017-07-01-1498915202-7700352-kundenfrequenzen2017.png
Kundenfrequenzen 2017

Der Weg die Fußgängerzone zu erweitern und neue Einzelhandelsflächen auszuweisen, bringt die Stadt nicht voran. Schon die neue Fußgängerzone entlang des Bongardboulevards bleibt weit hinter den Erwartungen zurück (Karte Kundenfrequenz Innenstadt 2017). Es fehlt an der erforderlichen Kundenfrequenz, damit es interessant wird für neue Geschäfte sich hier anzusiedeln.

Nur die Kortumstraße zwischen City Point und Husemannplatz, Huestraße und Harmoniestraße weisen eine gute bis sehr gute Kundenfrequenz aus (Karte Kundenfrequenz Innenstadt 2017). Ziel muss es sein in Zukunft insbesondere auch auf dem Boulevard und den Plätzen der Innenstadt für eine gute Kundenfrequenz zu sorgen, damit sich in diesem Bereich der Einzelhandel der Stadt konzentriert (Karte Kundenfrequenz Innenstadt 2030).

Wie kann sich die Bochumer Innenstadt von anderen abheben?

Schaut man sich an, welche Innenstädte in Deutschland florieren, dann zeichnen sich diese durch ihr Flair und Ambiente aus (IHF-Studie, 30.01.17). Innenstädte mit besonderer Aufenthaltsqualität, die sich von denen anderer Städte positiv abheben, funktionieren, trotz Kokurrenzdruck durch den Onlinehandel.

2017-07-01-1498915000-5307712-kundenfrequenzen2030.png
Kundenfrequenz 2030 und Entwicklungsschwerpunkte, Vorschlag STADTGESTALTER

Die STADTGESTALTER schlagen daher vor, statt ein neues 08/15 Einkaufszentrum zu errichten, sich bei der Innenstadtentwicklung auf die Neugestaltung der Plätze der Innenstadt zu konzentrieren, um in der Bochumer Innenstadt eine einzigartige Atmosphäre im Hinblick auf Flair und Ambiente zu schaffen (Entwicklungsschwerpunkte Innenstadt).

Die Markthalle am Husemannplatz

Zudem wollen die STADTGESTALTER zwei Entwicklungsprojekte in der Innenstadt vorantreiben: Statt dem Einkaufszentrum könnte am Husemannplatz die neue Markthalle entstehen, für deren mögliche Errichtung sich der Stadtrat erst kürzlich ausgesprochen hat. Kombiniert mit städtischem Wohnen, insbesondere für Studenten und dem ohnehin geplanten Hotel, könnte so vom Husemannplatz ein besonderer Impuls für die Bochumer Innenstadt ausgehen.

Seilbahnline Innenstadt - Ruhrpark

Zweiter positiver Impuls, mit dem sich die Bochumer Innenstadt von allen anderen Städten abheben könnte, wäre die von den STADTGESTALTERn schon 2014 vorgeschlagene Seilbahnlinie vom Bongard-Boulevard zum Ruhrpark (Ruhrbarone vom 14.02.15). Das besondere Seilbahnerlebnis würde die Innenstadt für neue Kunden attraktiv machen. Drei Viertel der Kunden des Ruhrparks kommen nicht aus Bochum. Viele würden die Seilbahn nutzen mal in die Bochumer Innenstadt zu fahren, um diese neu zu entdecken.

Fünf besondere Innenstadtplätze

Damit diese Kunden sich in der Innenstadt wohl fühlen, schlagen die STADTGESTALTER darüber hinaus vor fünf Plätze in der Innenstadt grundlegend neuzugestalten, um hier eine besondere Aufenhaltsqualität zu schaffen. Jeder der Plätze soll dabei entsprechend seiner Funktion thematisch anders gestaltet werden. 2030 könnten die Innenstadtbesucher dann die Plätze wie folgt erleben:

Rathausplatz - Der ruhige Platz ist der Platz der Gastronomie. Hier essen die Verwaltungsangestellten und die Mitarbeiter der Innenstadtbüros zu Mittag. Am Abend kommen die, denen das Bermuda-Dreieck zu überlaufen ist. Im Sommer bestimmen die vielen Tische, der an den Platz grenzenden Restaurants, das Bild.

Husemannplatz - Der Marktplatz. Der grüne Platz. Drei Mal in der Woche ist hier Markt. In der angrenzenden Markthalle ist jeden Tag Betrieb. Mit seinen hohen Bäumen ist dieser Platz besonders grün und wird im Sommer wegen der vielen schattigen Plätze geschätzt.

Dr.-Ruer-Platz - Der Event-Platz im Zentrum der Stadt. Hier steht immer eine Bühne. Jedes Wochenende ist was anderes los. Hier feiert die Stadt. Gruppen, Bands, alle zeigen, was sie können.

Propstei- und Kuhhirtenplatz - Der urige-, der gemütliche und familiäre Platz. Im Bereich des Kuhhirten-Platzes bestimmt das Spielen für Kinder und Erwachsene das Bild. Die Fraktion „FDP und die STADTGESTALTER" hatte hierzu bereits einen Vorschlag gemacht (Neue Spielflächen für die Innenstadt)

Der Propstei-Platz entsteht, wie bereits von den STADTGESTALTERn angeregt, neu (Propstei-Platz). Auf diesem Platz erfreuen sich Besucher an der Propstei-Kirche, die früher der Mittelpunkt der Bochumer Altstadt war und dem letzten Fachwerkhaus der historischen Innenstadt: Rietkötter. Der Platz ist der letzte Ort, an dem man noch etwas vom alten, nach dem Krieg untergegangenen Bochum spüren kann. Die heutige Marktstraße wird zum kleinen Kirchenpark.

Seilbahn-Platz - Der rummelige Verkehrsplatz. Hier sind immer Menschen unterwegs. Viele schweben mit der Seilbahn vom Ruhrpark ein. Es sind die Menschen, die nach dem Shoppen im sterilen Einkaufspark in der Innenstadt noch ein paar entspannte Stunden verbringen möchten. Die Seilbahnstation bildet den neuen Anfangspunkt des „Boulevards" und wirkt als Windbrecher für die Einkaufsmeile.

Strategiewechsel bei der Inenstadtentwicklung

Die Vorschläge der STADTGESTALTER bedeuten einen Strategiewechsel in der Innenstadtplanung. Nachdem der über Jahrzehnte verfolgte Zubau von Einzelhandelsflächen durch Einkaufscentern und die ständiger Erweiterung der Innenstadtparkhäuser sich als wenig erfolgreich erwiesen hat, schlagen die STADTGESTALTER vor jetzt kräftig in Flair und Ambiente der Innenstadt zu investieren.

Aus der Bochumer Innenstadt, die bisher nicht viel anders aussieht, als jede andere Innenstadt der Republik, soll eine Innenstadt werden, die sich von allen anderen Innenstädten, zumindest denen des Ruhrgebiets positiv abhebt. Die Menschen des Ruhrgebietes sollen 2030 nach Bochum kommen, weil die Innenstadt neben vielen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, viel Platz zum Verweilen bietet, zum Entspannen, zum Sehen und Gesehen werden. Weil es hier immer interessante Veranstaltungen gibt und nicht nur die Bochumer im lebendigen Zentrum ihrer Stadt gerne Zeit mit der Familie und Freunden verbringen.

          Global analysis of induced transcription factors and cofactors identifies Tfdp2 as an essential coregulator during terminal erythropoiesis   
Global analysis of induced transcription factors and cofactors identifies Tfdp2 as an essential coregulator during terminal erythropoiesis Chen, Cynthia; Lodish, Harvey F Key transcriptional regulators of terminal erythropoiesis, such as GATA-binding factor 1 (GATA1) and T-cell acute lymphocytic leukemia protein 1 (TAL1), have been well characterized, but transcription factors and cofactors and their expression modulations have not yet been explored on a global scale. Here, we use global gene expression analysis to identify 28 transcription factors and 19 transcriptional cofactors induced during terminal erythroid differentiation whose promoters are enriched for binding by GATA1 and TAL1. Utilizing protein–protein interaction databases to identify cofactors for each transcription factor, we pinpoint several co-induced pairs, of which E2f2 and its cofactor transcription factor Dp-2 (Tfdp2) were the most highly induced. TFDP2 is a critical cofactor required for proper cell cycle control and gene expression. GATA1 and TAL1 are bound to the regulatory regions of Tfdp2 and upregulate its expression and knockdown of Tfdp2 results in significantly reduced rates of proliferation as well as reduced upregulation of many erythroid-important genes. Loss of Tfdp2 also globally inhibits the normal downregulation of many E2F2 target genes, including those that regulate the cell cycle, causing cells to accumulate in S phase and resulting in increased erythrocyte size. Our findings highlight the importance of TFDP2 in coupling the erythroid cell cycle with terminal differentiation and validate this study as a resource for future work on elucidating the role of diverse transcription factors and coregulators in erythropoiesis.

Recurrent hormone-binding domain truncated ESR1 amplifications in primary endometrial cancers suggest their implication in hormone independent growth Holst, Frederik; Hoivik, Erling A.; Taylor-Weiner, Amaro; Schumacher, Steven E.; Asmann, Yan W.; Grossmann, Patrick; Trovik, Jone; Necela, Brian M.; Thompson, E. Aubrey; Salvesen, Helga B.; Cherniack, Andrew D.; Gibson, William J; Meyerson, Matthew L; Beroukhim, Rameen The estrogen receptor alpha (ERα) is highly expressed in both endometrial and breast cancers, and represents the most prevalent therapeutic target in breast cancer. However, anti-estrogen therapy has not been shown to be effective in endometrial cancer. Recently it has been shown that hormone-binding domain alterations of ERα in breast cancer contribute to acquired resistance to anti-estrogen therapy. In analyses of genomic data from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), we observe that endometrial carcinomas manifest recurrent ESR1 gene amplifications that truncate the hormone-binding domain encoding region of ESR1 and are associated with reduced mRNA expression of exons encoding the hormone-binding domain. These findings support a role for hormone-binding alterations of ERα in primary endometrial cancer, with potentially important therapeutic implications.

Zufällig waren nur fünf dreirädrige Fahrzeuge vertreten, besetzt mit eben jenen acht etwas reiferen Damen und Herren aus unserer Runde. Abgesehen vom An- und Abreisetag mit viel (Anreise) und noch mehr Regen (Rückfahrt) boten die anderen Tage trotz teilweise deprimierender Wettervorhersagen mit durchweg trockenen Touren jede Menge Fahrspass und auch reichlich Gelegenheiten für gemütliche Pausen. Das schöne Hotel mit freundlichem Service, guter Küche, gepflegten Getränken und sogar Garagenplätzen für unsere motorisierten Schätzchen rundete die gelungene Veranstaltung ab.

          Das neue Dorf   
Erscheint laut Verlag im August 2017 - Vorbestellungen nehmen wir ngern entgegen. Landleben - mal wirkt es provinziell, mal verkommt es zur kitschig-romantischen Utopie. Dabei können Dörfer eine reelle Blaupause für das vielbeschworene "gute Leben" sein. Wie neu gegründete Dörfer uns eine selbstbestimmte Existenz ermöglichen; wie Bio-Gärtnereien und Minifarmen nahegelegene Städte versorgen; wie Permakultur gesunde Ernährung und gesundes Klima gewährleistet; wie Kinder in und mit der Natur aufwachsen können - all das zeigt "Das Neue Dorf". Ralf Otterpohl entwirft eine kreative Synthese der Vorteile von Stadt und Land, die in der Tradition von Transition Town und Ökodorf steht, über diese hinausweist und Alternativen zum anonymen Leben in den Großstädten und der lohnabhängigen Arbeit aufzeigt. Das Buch stellt nicht nur verschiedenste Siedlungs- und Bewirtschaftungsprojekte in Deutschland und aller Welt vor, es bietet auch zahlreiche praktische Tipps, von der Standortsuche über Finanzierung, Planung und Infrastruktur bis hin zu Produktionsformen für die konkrete Umsetzung der "Dorfidee".

          Trump Reestablishes National Space Council   

President Trump signed an Executive Order today reestablishing the White House National Space Council.  Created by law in 1988 and operational under the George H.W. Bush Administration, the Council has not been funded or staffed since the end of his administration in January 1993.  It was chaired during his Administration by Vice President Dan Quayle,  Now it will be chaired by Vice President Mike Pence.

Pence and Trump spoke at the White House during a signing ceremony for the Executive Order (EO) that sets out the Space Council's membership and purpose.  It also creates a Users' Advisory Group to obtain input from the private sector and other non-government interests. 

The EO establishes the membership as follows (in the order listed in the document):

  • Vice President, who shall be Chairman
  • Secretary of State
  • Secretary of Defense
  • Secretary of Commerce
  • Secretary of Transportation
  • Director of the White House Office of Management and Budget
  • Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs
  • Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy
  • Director of National Intelligence
  • Secretary of Homeland Security
  • Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism
  • Administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  • Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
  • heads of other executive departments and agencies and other senior officials within the Executive Office of the President as determined by the Chairman

The Space Council's purpose is to advise and assist the President on national space policy and strategy including to review U.S. government space policy and develop a strategy for national space activities; develop recommendations for the president on space policy and space-related issues; and monitor and coordinate implementation of the President's national space policy.

Pence stated in March during the signing ceremony for the NASA Transition Authorization Act and again in June when NASA announced the new class of astronauts that the Space Council would be reestablished and he would lead it. In that sense. the announcement today was no surprise, but the White House kept the news to itself.  Rumors began circulating earlier this week that the announcement would take place today at 3:00 pm ET, but even this morning it was not listed on the President's schedule.  The White House press office asserted that it had no knowledge of the event as late as 1:30 pm, although Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders mentioned it at the end of the daily White House press briefing that began at 2:00 pm ET (which was off-camera).

No live coverage was provided by the White House, NASA, or television networks, although a video was later posted on the White House YouTube channel.

Most members of the House and Senate left Washington last night for the July 4 holiday, but based on the video, six Republican House members stayed in town for the event today:  Rep. John Culberson (R-TX), chairman of the Commerce-Justice-Science (CJS) subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee, which funds NASA;  Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), chairman of the House Science, Space, and Technology (SS&T) Committee, which authorizes NASA activities and sets policy; Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX), chairman of the House SS&T Space Subcommittee; Rep. Steve Palazzo (R-MS), member of the House CJS subcommittee; and two other members of House SS&T - Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) and Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL). 

Joining them were NASA astronaut Benjamin Alvin Drew and former astronaut David Wolf (in blue flight suits to Pence's right), former Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin (to Pence's left, with white beard), and former space shuttle astronaut Sandy Magnus (first woman to Aldrin's left).  Magnus currently is Executive Director of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).

Others who were present include United Launch Alliance President Tory Bruno; Boeing CEO Dennis Mulinberg; Lockheed Martin CEO Marilyn Hewson; Orbital ATK Director of Business Development, Launch Vehicle Division, John Steinmeyer; AMRO Fabricating Corporation CEO Mike Riley and President John Hammond; Futuramic Tool & Engineering Company Vice President John Couch; Cain Tubular Products Owner Mike Cain; Coalition for Deep Space Exploration (CDSE) President and CEO Mary Lynne Dittmar; former NASA Flight Director Gene Kranz; and former Congressman and lobbyist Bob Walker.  (Notable by their absence were representatives of entrepreneurial "New Space" companies.)

The only member of the Council other than Pence who was there was Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross.  Acting NASA Administrator Robert Lightfoot was not present.  NASA said he was out of town and unable to attend.  In a press release issued after the event, Lightfoot called the reestablishment of the Council "another demonstration of the Trump Administration's deep interest in our work, and a testament to the importance of space exploration to our economy, our nation, and the planet as a whole."

Pence said he was "honored and frankly enthusiastic" about taking on this role, adding that President Trump was recommitting the nation to "do what Americans have always done -- to lead, to push the boundaries of human knowledge, to blaze new trails into the unknown and astonish the world with the courage and leadership of the United States."

Trump himself said the announcement "sends a clear signal to the world that we are restoring America's proud legacy of leadership in space," and "space exploration is not only essential to our character as a nation, but also our economy and our great nation's security."

Pence will travel to NASA's Kennedy Space Center on July 6 to tour facilities and speak to the center's workforce.  NASA TV will cover the event beginning at 12:00 pm ET. Pence's speech is scheduled for 12:50 pm ET. 

The value of having a National Space Council in the White House has been debated at length over the decades.  Congress created a National Aeronautics and Space Council in the 1958 National Aeronautics and Space Act that established NASA for civil space activities and assigned military space activities to DOD.  That Council's task was to coordinate between civil and national security space.  President Richard Nixon abolished the Council in 1973.  A new National Space Council, without the aeronautics component, was created by Congress in the FY1989 NASA Authorization Act and implemented through an Executive Order signed by President George H.W. Bush on April 20, 1989.  Today's Executive Order supersedes the one from the Bush Administration.

The Bush-era Space Council had a broader task since commercial space activities had emerged by then, adding a third sector.  That period of time (April 1989-January 1993) was marked by sharp disagreements between the Council, chaired by Vice President Quayle with Mark Albrecht serving as Executive Director for most of those years, and NASA Administrator Dick Truly.  Albrecht wrote a memoir about his perception of the relationship between the Space Council and NASA and why President Bush's Space Exploration Initiative to return astronauts to the Moon and someday go to Mars never materialized, placing most of the blame on Truly. That is only one view of what transpired during those years, but the relevant point is that the clash between the Space Council and NASA created friction that hindered more than it helped.

Many veterans of that era have mixed views about whether a new Space Council will be effective.

Scott Pace, Director of the Space Policy Institute at George Washington University and a long-time participant in space policy development and implementation, wrote in a March 14, 2017 op-ed for The Hill that the "White House does not, and never has, needed a space council to supervise NASA, but it does need a way to combine the separate strands of national security space programs, diplomatic engagement, commercial competition and civil space cooperation with a unity of national purpose and effort."

One key to the success or failure of the Space Council will be the relationships that evolve among its Executive Director and the leaders of the various government agencies, including NASA, and private sector companies involved in space. Pence did not announce who will serve as Executive Director of the Council and no announcement has yet been made as to who will be nominated to serve as NASA Administrator.

Another will be the extent to which the President listens to the Council's advice and backs it up during almost inevitable battles with other parts of the Executive Office of the President, such as the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

For now, however, optimism is the watchword.

House SS&T Chairman Smith said in a statement to SpacePolicyOnline.com that the "reinstatement of the Space Council demonstrates the Trump administration's commitment to unlocking the great economic and scientific potential" of outer space.  He added that he looks forward to working with Pence and the Council "as Congress moves forward on important legislation for civil, commercial and national security space priorities."

Eric Stallmer, President of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation (CSF), told SpacePolicyOnline.com that CSF "looks forward to working with the Space Council to showcase the innovation and value the commercial space marketplace brings to the space community."

In a press release, CDSE's Dittmar called reestablishment of the Council "another important step in solidifying our nation's continued commitment to NASA's deep space exploration program."  That press release identified many of the industry representatives who were at the event and are CDSE members, including suppliers like AMRO Fabricating Corp., Futuramic Tool & Engineering Co., and Cain Tubular Products.

AIAA also issued a press release wherein Magnus said the Institute views the Space Council as "an opportunity to create an integrated strategic approach to U.S. space endeavors" and "stands ready to support any and all efforts to facilitate discussions between our community and executive branch officials."

Correction:  The word "commercial" was inadvertently omitted from Eric Stallmer's quote and has been corrected.
Update:  Comments from NASA Acting Administrator Lightfoot from a June 30, 2017 NASA press release were added.

          Called Home   
As you may know, every December I try to write something up as a sort of tribute to those who have gone on before us in the preceding year... it is a grim task that has seemed to grow more difficult as time marches on.


The sudden passing of Allen Toussaint in November took us all by surprise, and broke the heart of the Crescent City. As New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said at Allen's Memorial Service, "He was as much of a New Orleans icon as St. Louis Cathedral or The Superdome," and now, in an instant, he was gone. One of the very few people who deserved to be called a musical genius, I don't think we'll see the likes of him again in our lifetime.

New Orleans seemed to have been hit particularly hard in 2015, with the loss of people like Harold Battiste, Big Chief Bo Dollis, Smokey Johnson, Frankie Ford, Trumpet Black, Charles Otis, Irving Smith and, on November 21st, blue-eyed soul brother Skip Easterling. Skip had come up across the lake in Slidell singing with Eddie Lang and, after a couple of singles on Reno and Ron that went nowhere, was signed by Joe Banashak in 1963 and handed off to Toussaint for his new ALON label.


Don't Let Him (Come Between Us)

Although Easterling is remembered mostly for the records he cut later on with Eddie Bo and Huey Smith, this little known Toussaint composition (almost certainly cut while he was home on leave during his stint in the Army) provides us with a glimpse of the under-appreciated work he was doing at Cosimo Recording during that period.

Wayne Carson, who had penned songs like The Letter and Soul Deep for The Box Tops, and Nine Pound Steel for Joe Simon (along with Dan Penn, who said they came up with about "...a pound a day."), while at American Sound in Memphis, said he wrote his most enduring composition "in ten minutes sitting at my kitchen table". In late 1971, Chips Moman told him he had to come up with a 'bridge' for the song before he would record it on him. Staff songwriters Mark James and Johnny Christopher sat down with Wayne upstairs in Chips' office and hammered one out on an old upright piano. Moman approved. According to Roben Jones, he liked the results so much that he flew Carson personally to Nashville to shop the tapes to Fred Foster at Monument, who told them "I don't think the world is ready for it."


Always On My Mind

He may have been right... but Chips never gave up on the song. Ten years later (when he was producing Poncho and Lefty on Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson), he and Bobby Emmons offered the song to Merle who declined to cut it for the album. Willie, however, said it "bowled me over the moment I first heard it." An absolute masterpiece, Moman's towering 1982 Memphis Boys production of it on Nelson will, in my humble opinion, live on forever... Bobby Emmons left us on February 23rd, Wayne Carson on July 20th.


Soul Meeting

The passing of Don Covay in February, followed by Ben E. King in April, brought the entire Soul Clan back together one more time (well, actually, they never really were together when they cut their lone Atlantic single in 1968, recording their vocals at different times whenever their schedule permitted). Don Covay was the prime mover and shaker behind the whole super-group idea and, as we've seen in the past, wanted King in the Clan from day one. After recruiting Bobby Womack to play guitar, he produced this funky artifact of Soul from a time and place that will never come again.


It's All Wrong But It's Alright

Speaking of Atlantic, when Percy Sledge died in April, it really hit home. He was, to my generation, our first introduction to Southern Soul. If you are of a certain age you know what I mean... I still get all emotionally involved whenever I hear When A Man Loves A Woman, and I know I always will. This phenomenal B Side, written by Marlin Greene and Eddie Hinton (neither one of whom gets a mention in the Muscle Shoals movie), has the same effect on me. Percy had that power... "It's your love that's keeping me alive..."

Soul Deep.

Until We Meet Again!
          Gone But Not Forgotten   
LEROY CRUME

One of eleven children, LeRoy Crume was the son of a Missouri sharecropper who would relocate with his family to Chicago when LeRoy was ten years old. Living in 'Bronzeville', he attended grammar school with a kid named Sam Cook. Both of their fathers were preachers, and before long both boys were out there singing in family Gospel groups. LeRoy saved up enough money from his paper route to buy a guitar, and was soon playing it with the group, becoming one of the first to introduce the instrument to Gospel Music.


Sam went on to become somewhat of a teen sensation as the lead singer of the popular Highway Q.C.'s, who would develop a friendly rivalry with The Crume Brothers, each trying to 'cut' the other in area appearances. Shortly after founding father R.H. Harris left The Soul Stirrers in 1950, he recruited LeRoy to play guitar for his new group, The Christland Singers. The Soul Stirrers, meanwhile, had chosen Sam to replace the highly regarded Harris, which was considered quite a bold move at the time. As the guitar began to become an essential component of Quartet Gospel (thanks, in large part, to LeRoy), The Stirrers hired a Philadelphian named Bob King away from The Southern Tones to accompany them on the road. When King became too ill to travel, Sam convinced the group to ask LeRoy to join them.


Against his better judgement, Crume left his 'day job' in Chicago and accepted their offer. Two 'young bucks' in what had essentially been an old man's game, the pair soon became inseparable, and their late night exploits raised eyebrows up and down the Gospel Highway.

After Cooke 'crossed over' in 1956, Crume became the group's de-facto leader, and it was his closeness with Sam that influenced their decision to sign with his new SAR label, a decision Crume would later call "the biggest mistake I would ever make... I allowed friendship to overrule my business sense." Be that as it may, LeRoy remained out there on the road backing up a series of Sam's successors, like Johnny Jones, Johnnie Taylor and the extremely 'bad' Jimmy Outler:


Just positively amazing stuff, I don't think you can say enough about LeRoy's driving guitar work, and just how great The Stirrers continued to be after Sam departed. He and Leroy remained very close and, in his mind, I don't think Cooke ever really left. "Sam was a Soul Stirrer until the night somebody murdered him," Leroy said.

"Sam was as close as any blood relative I've ever had... me and Sam had that special connection." Heartbroken, Leroy had lost his best friend, and within a few months he quit the group as well. He maintained that there was a lot more to Sam's death than met the eye, and that he was killed for not playing the game the way certain people wanted him to...

Leroy eventually wound up back in Chicago where, in addition to getting a job driving a bus for the CTA, he would become a member of the Jubilee Showcase house band. He began performing some secular material with a friend of his from The Clefs of Calvary named Calvin April, and somehow they wound up recording at American for Sound Stage 7 in 1968.

I'm Alright Now
SS7 2612
"We recorded that in Memphis. It was just before the assassination of Martin Luther King, in fact, they were checking into The Lorraine Motel as Calvin and I were checking out. We even talked for awhile to some of the people with him, like Jessie Jackson, The Staple Singers, and some of the others. The following night after getting back to Chicago, I turned on the TV, and it had just happened. That's how I first heard about it... by the way, Soul X 2, was NOT my favorite name, it was given to us by the DJ from, WLAC radio in Nashville, Hoss Allen. I later renamed us Branding Iron, and that's the way that story goes!"

In the wake of the tragic killing of Dr. King in their own backyard, Al Bell was faced with re-creating the newly independent Stax Records into something more than the sum of its parts. He immediately signed The Staple Singers and hooked up with Jesse Jackson and SCLC compatriot Larry Shaw in Chicago in an effort to keep the label on the cutting edge. While in Chicago, Pervis Staples took him to see 'Father of The Blues' Willie Dixon who had recorded a demo he wanted Bell to hear.

Willie had written Right Tight and Out of Sight with a soul duo like Sam & Dave in mind. Bell liked the song, but was more interested in signing the guys who were singing it... Leroy and Calvin - now known as Branding Iron.

The record began to make some local noise, which led to an appearance on another Chicago institution, Soul Train. Things were definitely looking up! The flip of that first Volt release, Slave For Love was written by another legendary Blues figure, J.B. Lenoir. Arranged by Gene Barge, the 45 was about as Chicago as you could get. Despite Bell's assurance that "you guys are going to make so much money, you won't be able to count it all!," the record never made the national charts and, after one more Volt release, they were let go. Although Branding Iron would cut another 45 for the tiny Stag label (produced by Leroy's brother Dillard), by then he was back on the road with The Soul Stirrers, where he would remain for the rest of his life.


"I thank God for allowing me to hang around as long as I have, after literally taking away all of those that once walked along with me when this journey started... they're all gone. Now that's the scary part, because I know the next soldier to fall will definitely be me. Sometimes I wonder why was I left as the last Soul Stirrer standing, and then something seems to say, it's not yours to reason why. It's not for any man to understand God's plan."

Leroy Crume was called home on October 20th.

Soulshake
SSS 2612
After Huey Meaux was hauled off to prison in 1968, his friend Shelby Singleton brought the duo he had been cutting hits on at Grits 'n' Gravy to Music Row to record what has to be the only Soul song ever to feature both an electric sitar and a pedal steel guitar! Peggy and Jo Jo are just belting it out, while top shelf 'Nashville Cats' Jerry Kennedy, Pete Drake, Chip Young, Wayne Moss, Kenny Buttrey, Charlie McCoy, David Briggs and Bob Wilson burn down the house! One of my favorite records, they don't come much better than this.

Chip Young left us on December 20th,

JOE COCKER
BOBBY KEYS

Space Captain
A&M 1174
I don't think we knew it at the time, but for a lot of American kids going to high school in the 1970s, Joe Cocker was as close as we got to Soul Music. When Mad Dogs & Englishmen was released in 1970, it featured covers of Ray Charles, Otis Redding and Sam & Dave tunes, alongside the Beatles, Traffic and Stones. With an all-star band put together by Leon Russell, we would soon recognize the name of every artist on there, especially that of the saxophone player, Bobby Keys, who would be cutting Sticky Fingers with The Stones within a month of those initial Fillmore East dates. This great tune we have here never fails to bring me back...

Bobby Keys passed December 2nd,
Joe Cocker on December 22nd.

          Bobby Womack - Don't Look Back (Liberty 56186)   

Don't Look Back

A REPOST FROM 2007


OK, folks, it's hard to believe it was over a year ago that I promised you a second installment of the Bobby Womack saga, but time flies when you're having fun, I guess...

When we last left our hero, he was taking a lot of heat for marrying Sam Cooke's widow, and was unable to get his records played on the radio, as the disk jockeys that had known and loved Sam were 'throwing his records in the garbage'. Releases on the Him label and Fred Smith's Keymen Records went nowhere, and Bobby was itching to get back to work. In 1965, he auditioned for a spot in Ray Charles' band

Ray was reportedly amazed by the fact that Bobby could keep up with him, no matter what changes he called, without being able to read the music they had set in front of him. "My music is way more complicated than Sam Cooke's stuff," Ray told him, but in spite of that, Womack was hired. He spent the next year or so out on the road with Brother Ray, playing over 200 dates a year. Conditions were less than rosy, however, and Bobby, as the newest member of the outfit, had to take the brunt of it.

From ill fiiting hand-me-down uniforms, to doubling up in hotel rooms with the epileptic Curtis Aimey, Bobby seemed to be the last one on the list. The thing that finally got him fired, however, was that he complained about the fact that Ray would fly the band's plane himself. "Man, I couldn't sleep for thinking about our flights between gigs," Bobby said, "...a blind man was flying the plane. I had attacks about that." Incredible. Ray fired him in early 1967.

According to the liner notes of Atlantic Unearthed: Soul Brothers, Bobby's lone session for Atlantic was held in September of 1966. When Atlantic 2388 was released in early 1967, his last name had been misspelled as 'Wommack'. As you may recall, that same spelling had been used on the writer's credit for the first song he gave to Wilson Pickett, Nothing You Can Do, which was recorded at Fame in Muscle Shoals. I'm guessing that Bobby's single was recorded there as well.

It was Pickett who told him about the studio in Memphis he was headed to next... "Bobby," he said. "there are some white boys down there; if you closed your eyes, you could not tell they weren't black. Those f#*@ers can play!" The studio he was referring to, of course, was American Sound, and in July of 1967, Bobby Womack flew into town, installed himself into the Trumpet Motel, and showed up at American for Pickett's first sessions there. In addition to playing guitar, he brought along another one of his compositions, the amazing I'm In Love, which The Wicked One would take to #6 R&B later that year. When Pickett left, Bobby stayed on, becoming an integral member of the 'American Group' during its absolute heyday.

"...no one bothered me there. No one asked me about Sam Cooke or nothing... they just knew me as Bobby Womack, guitar player," he said, "It was the place to be, I loved the atmosphere, and there was a little soul-food place around the corner. Perfect." His serious chops got him accepted right away, "I was especially good at the intros. That's what made Moman and the others notice me... they called me cold-blooded, the way I could slip a guitar break in to make a track sing. Give a crafty hook to the intro, something people don't forget."

All of these quotes are taken from the fascinating autobiography Bobby published last year, Midnight Mover: The True Story Of The Greatest Soul Singer In The World. In the book he describes the American Group as "a strong house band, with Bobby Emmons on keyboards, Tommy Cogbill on Bass, Bobby Wood the piano player, drummer Gene Chrisman, and Mike Leech who also played bass and arranged strings." No mention of Reggie Young, though... When Barney Hoskyns asked Chips Moman about Womack in those days, he said "He and Reggie played guitar together for a couple of years there, and the two of them would be just magic, alternating between lead and rhythm, and getting each other's playing down totally." That sounds about right, and I think the friendly competition between the two guitarists created something more than the sum of its parts. Chips saw that, and was happy to have Bobby on board.

Womack also became a regular member of Wilson Pickett's touring band, and has some stories to tell about that whole experience. As Pickett travelled back to Muscle Shoals to record, Bobby made the trip with him, supplying much of his material in the process. All in all, Wilson recorded some seventeen Womack compositions (like I'm A Midnight Mover and I Found A True Love), and Bobby was happy to sit back and collect the publishing checks.

Before he left California, however, Bobby had signed with Minit Records, after playing some of his songs for them as demos. They told him to go out and record something, and that they'd be happy to release it. After a couple of years of putting them off, Minit was finally looking for some 'product', only Bobby had given all of his originals away to Pickett. He started fooling around with a few standards with the guys in the studio, and the album that Minit finally received contained covers of Fly Me To The Moon, Moonlight In Vermont and California Dreamin'. They were none too thrilled.

Much to everyone's surprise (except Bobby's, of course), Fly Me To The Moon became a big hit, breaking into the R&B top twenty in the summer of 1968. California Dreamin' would do the same for the company that fall. Womack was onto something, and they let him run with it. When Womack covered a song, it became something else entirely. He made each one his own. Hoping to continue in that vein, his version of I Left My Heart In San Francisco was released as a single in early 1969, but only managed to dent the top fifty.

The album it was taken from, My Prescription, is often overlooked, but represents, in my opinion, some of the best stuff to ever emanate from 827 Thomas Street. Minit would pull three more singles from the album for release in 1969 and early 1970. All of them charted, with How I Miss You Baby climbing as high as #14 R&B. Then the company went out of business... more accurately, it was 'consolidated' by the corporate conglomerate that owned it (like the once mammoth Imperial label before it) into its parent company, Liberty Records.

Looking for more of the same, Liberty would release one more single from this mighty Minit Lp, I'm Gonna Forget About You. Written by Womack's mentor Sam Cooke, it would become an R&B top thirty hit in the summer of 1970. Today's positively infectious B side was the flip of that single. Originally written by Smokey Robinson for the Temptations in 1965, it had become Paul Williams signature song, and closed out many a Temps performance. This version is better. Way better. Let me just say here that in all the time I've been doing this, this has to be the absolute BEST RECORD I've ever put up here. I mean it, boys and girls. The unbelievable Chips Moman production, Bobby's soulful vocals, the interplay of the guitars, the organ, the drums, the cookin' bass line... like the label says, it's 'An American Group Production', this time for one of their own, and was recorded around the same time that Elvis was in the building. It just doesn't get any better.

Wow.

Liberty would release a live album, as well as one last single on Bobby before being 'consolidated' right out of business itself in 1971, when something called The TransAmerica Corporation rolled it over into United Artists. The new label would release another single from the live album, one that was responsible for giving Bobby his nickname, The Preacher, as he told it like it was over both sides of the 45, just like he did at the end of his live shows.

Bobby, although he never changed anything, now found himself at his third record label in two years. As it turned out, that wasn't so bad, as the people at United Artists seemed willing to listen, and gave him creative control over his releases. 1971 was also the year that he collaborated with Gabor Szabo and came up with the immortal Breezin'. Bobby also began working with Sly Stone, and appeared on his groundbreaking There's a Riot Going On album. It was Sly who convinced him to lose the suit, and came up with the idea for the cool cover shot on his first UA album, Communication. In many ways, this was the record that kind of defined what Womack, and much of black music in the seventies, was all about. The title track would hit the R&B top forty, but the next single off the album, That's The Way I Feel About 'Cha, became his biggest hit yet, climbing to #2 R&B in December of 1971.

His next album, Understanding, was released in 1972. Just a fantastic record, Bobby Womack's genius is fully realized here for the first time. Establishing him as the R&B superstar Sam Cooke had envisioned he was destined to become, there was no turning back. One of the last albums to be recorded at American before Moman closed it down, it was produced by Womack himself, and it shows. Two 45s were taken from the album, resulting in no less than three chart hits.

The first of these, the timeless Woman's Gotta Have It, became Bobby's first #1 hit in April of 1972. Speaking to the ladies in the audience (another thing he had learned from Sam), they let him know that all was forgiven. The Womack was back. Both sides of his next single would chart, with Harry Hippie (reportedly written about his ill-fated brother, Harris Womack) going top ten, and Sweet Caroline (which he had no doubt been a part of when Neil Diamond cut the original at American) top twenty...

Hello, its meeeee! Fra i går til i dag har vi vært på Marens hytte. Vi var nemlig flere enn to som hadde fri, så man må jo utnytte de få dagene igjen av denne solfylte ferien vår. Været var jo ikke så fint, men det ble jo himla koselig med en liten tur i naturen, taco, spill og nattbad ⭐️

I morgen skal jeg på harrytur til DK! Fint med forsyning når fadderuka starter


          Kypros   

Hei! Jeg hadde skrevet et innlegg om Kypros nesten med en gang vi kom hjem. Merket nå at det ikke ble publisert. Jeg hadde nemlig skrevet en fortelling om hendelsen på togstasjonen, men nå vet jo alle om det uansett. Så jeg dropper å publisere det.

Uansett, Lasse og jeg tok oss en tur til Kypros. Det var sinnsykt varmt, til og med jeg lå ganske mye i skyggen. Dagene gikk stort sett til det samme, våkne - frokost - tane - lunsj - tane - dusje - se how i met youre mother - middag. Dere kjenner jo oss, ikke de som er de mest rastløse. Deilig var det da!
