          Fairline launches the Targa 53 GT for boat owners who refuse to compromise   

Photo

Hand crafted to order by Fairline’s highly experienced and dedicated British craftsmen, the Targa 53 GT sets a new standard in choice, personalisation and buyer satisfaction, which has never before been properly recognised or met by boat builders. There will be no such thing as an ‘off the shelf’ model with the Targa 53 GT, allowing customers to design and purchase something that is truly their boat.

Recognised for nearly 50 years as guardians of British ingenuity and engineering of the ‘Boater’s Boat,’ Fairline has created the Targa 53 GT to deliver a ‘no compromise’ solution to the discerning buyer. Fairline has attended to every small detail – from the unrivalled performance, proven sea-keeping, and the exceptional quality of every aspect of on board space, facilities and features. The Targa 53 GT redefines the 50 foot boating experience, providing outstanding quality in design and performance for the uncompromising end-user.

Design Director at Fairline, Andrew Pope, comments, “The Targa 53 GT represents a dramatic step forward in motorboat design, using the Fairline design DNA to create a model that perfectly blends form and function. The use of smart design principles throughout the boat eliminates the owner’s need to compromise. We want our customers to regret nothing and when choosing the Targa 53 GT, the owner will receive unrivalled flexibility in layout and complete confidence in its construction and features.”

Exterior lines reflect dynamic performance

The Targa 53 GT is immediately distinctive thanks to its exterior styling and shows an evolution from the time proven Targa lineage, incorporating the distinctive deck window profile with signature Fairline spear. Continuing the Fairline tradition of timeless design, the Targa 53 GT incorporates a beautifully tapered hull glazing that emphasises the new model’s dynamic character. The boat’s classic swept stern shape integrates the hull lines, creating a functional yet attractive transom that gives the boat a dynamic look, even when at rest.

Fairline takes a unique approach to constructing its boats with four separate mouldings coming together to create a monocoque construction. This procedure, along with Fairline’s resin infusion process, adds structural strength and rigidity while reducing weight, noise and vibration.

Sleek design features have been used to create an “in and out” experience, including large three piece patio doors that span the full width of the upper deck. The large 'L shaped' cockpit seating boasts a substantial three person sun pad utilising a moveable backrest, giving 'open' style exterior space whilst still being able to close the doors on any inclement weather. The Targa 53 GT has a single level floor from the cockpit to saloon, with one step up to the companionway to maximise the feeling of space.

The new model also features a glazed retractable hardtop, a key advantage of which is the pneumatic seal, providing a waterproof seal and seamless one touch movement from closed to open. The boat’s glazed feature windows in the saloon allow light to flood in and provide a stunning 360 degree panoramic experience, with an uninterrupted view. There is an option for a submersible bathing platform, with variable height hydraulic mechanism and a 500kg capacity. The platform holds an integrated Armstrong ladder for those wanting to swim, which conveniently swings and locks away when not in use.

Interior elegance and flexibility

During the development of the Targa 53 GT, emphasis was placed on creating the most flexible Fairline layout to date, providing customers with the chance to create their perfect boat, which is hand built to their specific requirements. This includes the choice of galley up or galley down, providing the customer with class-leading flexibility in layout and widening the boat’s appeal to meet the demands of a global market. 

Designed to be a sociable boat inside and out, the Targa 53 GT combines large cockpit seating and sunbathing areas, with interior saloon seating to provide a seamless flow of entertaining and relaxation space. A stone inlayed wooden high/low dining table with folding leaves can convert from dining to coffee table, allowing the main saloon seating to serve as a dining or relaxation area. A stunning feature drinks unit stands next to the starboard sofa and a 40 inch rise and fall flat screen television as standard.
Companion seating opposite the twin helm adds to the boat’s sociable and inclusive experience. The helm station is designed to ensure the best visibility for the driver due to a central helm position, and the boat is equipped with the latest Garmin navigational technology, renowned for its reliability, technical innovation and ease of use. 

An industry first for this size of boat is the layout of the three luxuriously appointed cabins, providing the best level of comfortable and spacious accommodation for everyone on board. 

The full beam mid-ship master cabin boasts a king size bed, feature headboard, mood lighting and large panoramic windows. The highest quality interior materials are used throughout, including stone worktops and leather panelled drawers and bed surround. A flush mounted 32 inch television, along with a standalone vanity unit with illuminated mirror are just a couple of examples of the luxurious touches in the master cabin. The master ensuite features the option of marble worktops throughout – a first for Fairline – and large windows to light the spacious bathroom.

In addition to the stunning master cabin, there is a VIP forward double cabin, with the option to convert the double to a scissor berth and glazing overhead with integrated blinds. A versatile extra cabin is to port, with side by side twin beds. Often overlooked, the twin cabin features the same attention to detail as the other accommodation, with no need for guests to sleep in bunk beds and design touches including a full length mirror. For crewed boats, Fairline offers an optional spacious crew cabin.

The galley is visually open to the upper deck, ensuring those enjoying the ambience below decks are always connected to other guests. Owners can choose from three beautiful stone worktop options and the galley’s contemporary yet practical features include a full height fridge freezer, induction hobs and soft close drawers. Storage options in the galley include large eyeline lockers above the worktop and an under floor larder. Customers opting for the 'galley up' option will gain an additional day head and flexible utility room in place of the galley.
Stunning design details run throughout the boat including feature piping and stitching on the sofas and leather bound and stitched handrails. Owners can select options for sofa coverings, fabric and leather from four sumptuous interior schemes based on popular boating destinations – Capri, St Tropez, Amalfi and the Hamptons.

Technical details and engine options

Offering excellent sea-keeping in all conditions, the Targa 53 GT is a true “boater’s boat” and offers a choice of two shaft driven engine options from Volvo. Up to 725bhp is available through shaft drives, which better suits the handling and performance characteristics of a 50ft+ boat.

The boat is designed to reach a minimum of 30 knots in a fully loaded state, including fuel, water, tender and crew and boasts high capacity fuel tanks for longer range, safer cruising.
Every feature has been carefully planned to enhance the on board experience of the Targa 53 GT, including gyro stabilisation as a factory fitted option, a 45% increase in air conditioning output, 35% increase in exterior glazing, and 70% increase in cockpit seating and sunbed areas.
Prices start from £649,000 excluding VAT, with the 2x Volvo Penta D11-675 EVC engine option.

Douglas Culverwell, Sales and Marketing Director, adds, “The Targa 53 GT gives an idea of the shape of things to come, not just for Fairline but for the whole market. This new model refuses to be categorised with production line boats and as the order books are already filling up, we welcome the imminent boat show season.

“The Targa 53 GT is an opportunity for our customers to purchase what suits their individual boating needs when it comes to layout and functionality. With a boat where attention to detail, both in engineering and aesthetics, is key.”

          Sidedressed manure boosts profits   

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

Think Different

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

-----

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

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

Manure replaces commercial fertilizer

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

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

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

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

Switched application methods

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

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

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

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

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

Concerns and BMPs

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

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


          China Completes Construction Of New Missile Shelters On Disputed South China Sea Islands   

Trump's "up and down" relationship with China may be on the precipice of taking a sharp dive into the proverbial abyss.  After frequently threatening to label China a "currency manipulator" on the campaign trail last year, Trump's relationship with China's President Xi Jinping took a decided turn for the better after a meeting at Mar-a-Lago in which China vowed to help address the "menace of North Korea" .

But apparently those efforts have officially failed:

 

And, shortly after those efforts were declared dead, the Trump administration signed a $1.3 billion arms deal with Taiwan, a deal which China has "demanded" be cancelled immediately.

Meanwhile, as the Financial Times points out today, in the midst of all the international crises, China has made great strides building out and further militarizing their disputed islands in the South China Sea.

Over the past three months, China has built four new missile shelters on Fiery Cross, boosting the number of installations on the reef to 12, according to satellite images provided to the Financial Times by the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

 

China has also expanded radar facilities on Fiery Cross and two other disputed reefs — Subi and Mischief — in the Spratly Island chain, and started building underground structures that Greg Poling, director of CSIS’s Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative, assesses will be used to store munitions.

 

“We haven’t seen any slowdown in construction, including since the Mar-a-Lago summit,” said Mr Poling. “The islands are built and they are clearly militarised, which means they already got over the hard part. Now every time they put in a new radar or new missile shelter, it is harder for the world to get angry. They are building a gun, they are just not putting the bullets in yet.”

 

The advances underscore how much progress China has made towards militarizing the man-made islands in ways that significantly enhance its ability to both monitor activity in the South China Sea and to project power in the western Pacific where the US has been the dominant power in the seven decades since the second world war.

Euan Graham, an Asia expert at the Lowy Institute in Sydney, said it was “not quite game over in the South China Sea” but that China had fundamentally altered the status quo over the islands that would be hard to change barring war or natural disasters.

 

“They already exert a strategic effect by projecting China’s presence much further out,” said Mr Graham. “They will not prevent the US Navy from operating in their vicinity, but they will complicate the threat environment for US ships and aircraft — by extending the [Chinese navy’s] surveillance and targeting net, as well as the envelope of power projection.”

 

Of course, these latest provocations come despite a promise made to Obama in 2015 that "China would not militarize the man-made islands"...a promise which the Obama administration apparently took at face value and proceeded to bury their heads in the sand.

During a visit to Washington, Mr Xi told Barack Obama in 2015 that China would not militarise the man-made islands, but in the intervening 20 months Beijing has stepped up construction, and now has runways that can accommodate Chinese fighter jets.

 

China’s legal claim to the seas around the maritime features is legally controversial since many were dredged out of coral and sand and thus not entitled to status as islands. But Vasily Kashin, an expert on the Chinese military at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, said the goal was never legal sovereignty but to give China forward bases from which it could patrol and exercise control in their vicinity.

 

“If you have this infrastructure in the Spratlys, it allows China to constantly monitor aircraft and ships in the South China Sea. The point is that no one will be able to do anything in the area without them seeing.”

 

Ely Ratner, an Asia expert who served in the Obama administration, said Washington had failed to craft a strategy to convince China to halt militarisation of the man-made islands. “Until China believes that there will be significant costs . . . I don’t think they have any reason to slow down,” said Mr Ratner. “They have been pushing on an open door and have been surprised at how little resistance they have faced.”

 

Critics say the Obama administration took too cautious an approach to avoid creating tensions that would hurt the ability for co-operation on other issues. Meanwhile, some experts say the Trump team has given China a relatively free pass to maximise the chances it will boost pressure on North Korea to give up its nuclear programme.

Somehow we suspect the Trump administration will end up being slightly less "accommodating" over the long term...

          Reading the Office of Legal Counsel on Emoluments: Do Super-Rich Presidents Get a Pass?    

 

I wrote last November that the Foreign Emoluments Clause “is on its face a national security provision designed to the protect the country from officers too enmeshed with foreign interests.” If the Justice Department’s recent court filing is to be believed, that protection is exceedingly limited. This new position marks a decisive break from the more conscientious approach long espoused by both the Comptroller General and the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC).

At the heart of the emoluments controversy is President Trump’s refusal to liquidate his business holdings. He has instead maintained ownership of the Trump Organization, a multibillion-dollar umbrella company with thousands of domestic and international investments, and placed the assets in a revocable trust managed by his sons Donald Trump, Jr. and Eric Trump. Trump now faces three lawsuits alleging that he is profiting from his business empire in violation of the Constitution. Three days after his inauguration, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a government accountability watchdog group, filed the first suit in the Southern District of New York. This month, two more complaints were filed by the attorneys general of Washington D.C. and Maryland and 196 congressional Democrats, in federal district courts in Maryland and the District of Columbia, respectively.

All three suits center on the meaning and scope of the Foreign Emoluments Clause, which provides that “no person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept any present, Emolument, Office or Title of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign state” (U.S. Const. art. I, § 9, cl. 8). Citing Trump's business dealings with state governments and federal agencies, such as its lease on the Old Post Office Building that now houses the Trump International Hotel, two of the suits also allege violations of the Domestic Emoluments Clause. This provision applies specifically to the president and provides that he shall receive “for his Services” a fixed compensation during his tenure and not “any other Emolument from the United States, or any of [the states]” (U.S. Const. art. II, § 1, cl. 7).

Serious procedural challenges like standing notwithstanding, given the House and Senate’s failure to address head-on the risks posed by Trump’s financial conflicts pose, the lawsuits could prove important in forcing a much-needed conversation: Is Trump taking in profits in violation of the Constitution? And just as critically, are future presidents entitled to pull a Trump—or does the Constitution dictate that they, like Jimmy Carter, must sell their family peanut farms as a condition of taking office?

No Article III court has ever rendered an opinion on how either Emoluments Clause should be interpreted, though the Supreme Court has offered interpretations of the term “emoluments” as it appears in Foreign Emoluments Clause-related statutes periodically enacted by Congress since 1881. Because of the limited judicial precedent, the internal memoranda from the Comptroller General and the Office of Legal Counsel that have been made public over the years are among the most important sources of guidance we have on emoluments issues. And though these memoranda do not directly address the question posed by the Trump business empire, making some amount of inference and legwork necessary, in critical respects they quite clearly contradict the sweeping defense that the Justice Department put forward this month in its 70-page motion to dismiss the CREW case against Trump.

The key issue in these suits—once you get behind a set of justiciability questions that may prove dispositive—is what constitutes an emolument (though with respect to the Foreign Emoluments Clause there’s also some disagreement about what kind of entity constitutes a “foreign state”). In plain English, we are looking at an exotic presidential twist on the biggest and oldest challenge to enforcing any anticorruption law: What counts? Do the forbidden “emoluments” cover only goodie boxes, blatant quid pro quo arrangements, and employment-related compensation? Or are the profits that Trump enjoys by way of his business transactions also prohibited when they come from foreign states and domestic government entities? And if the latter, more expansive definition is the appropriate one, are the profits prohibited only when the take is in excess of  “fair-market-value”—and if so, does that definition serve as a meaningful limitation when at issue are luxury goods whose value or sales may be inflated by the fact that Trump is president and the products are prominently branded with his name?

Predictably, the dispute has taken the form of a battle for the original meaning of “emoluments.” An array of historical materials support both a limited and broad definition. The two possible interpretations are well summed up by the Oxford English Dictionary, which provides two definitions dating back to the Founding: “1. Profit or gain arising from station, office, or employment . . . . 2. Advantage, benefit, comfort.”

The Justice Department, like Trump’s lawyers at Morgan Lewis, latches onto the first definition  to argue that “the Emoluments Clauses apply only to the receipt of compensation for personal services and to the receipt of honors and gifts based on official position.” That is, President Trump is precluded only from receiving benefits in exchange for services provided to a foreign state in his official capacity as president, or—and this is crucial, given the subject matter of the OLC opinions—services provided “in a capacity akin to an employee of a foreign state.”

The plaintiffs in the three suits, on the other hand, argue for the much more expansive definition. Marshaling its own set of historical evidence, CREW asserts that emoluments are "anything of value, including money, permits, approvals, tax benefits, any other benefits, and anything else monetary or nonmonetary, regardless of whether it is given in exchange for goods or services, and regardless of whether it is part of a transaction at, above, or below market rates."

A close examination of the relevant Comptroller and OLC opinions reveals that the current Justice Department is reading the Emoluments Clauses too narrowly, while CREW and the other plaintiffs are reading them too broadly. None of the opinions approves the receipt of benefits that can even arguably be attributed to the prestige or influence conferred by an office, and together they do not support the Justice Department’s claim that presidents may, as a categorical matter, collect profits from business transactions with foreign entities and domestic government entities as long as fair value is extracted on both sides. But notwithstanding the plaintiffs’ hard pull in the other direction, the opinions also suggest that presidents may in limited cases accept certain fixed benefits—as I will explain, these might be pensions from the U.S. state that used to employ them or money damages from a foreign country against which, in a past life, they successfully won a judgment. The key is that those benefits cannot be subject to foreign or domestic government manipulation or adjustment in connection with the presidential office.

This happens to be a sensible position that accords with what the opinions repeatedly underscore as the purpose of the Emoluments Clauses and the ultimate touchstone for interpreting their meaning: “to prevent corruption and foreign influence” and to bar “payments which have a potential of influencing or corrupting the integrity of the recipient.”

 

Why Language About Emoluments Is Easily Misused

A threshold issue before turning to the OLC literature is the confusion created by cherry-picking historical materials without consideration of their factual context. For example, in its motion to dismiss, the Justice Department followed the lead of some scholars in pulling some Supreme Court language that suggests the term “emoluments” applies only to salary and other duty-related benefits. Most notably, in Hoyt v. United States, 51 U.S. 109 (1850), the Court defines emoluments as “every species of compensation or pecuniary profit derived for a discharge of the duties of office” (emphasis added).

But in Hoyt, the Supreme Court was specifically asked to decide what constitutes an “emolument of office” per a statute governing Treasury Department collectors in their official capacity; the case did not require the Court to consider or rule on the existence of emoluments of other kinds. This is a key point for purposes of properly construing any Comptroller or OLC opinion that cites Hoyt and regurgitates its definition of “emoluments.” These opinions, like Hoyt, have to be read with an eye to their facts: they do not assert that “emoluments” must derive directly from discharge of duty; rather, the kind of emoluments at issue in those opinions was the kind derived for discharge of duty. As a consequence, the reliance on Hoyt in these opinions does not serve as evidence of a limiting principle for emoluments in general.

In short, as pointed out by the plaintiffs and by assorted scholars, the proper question for purposes of discerning the historical scope of “emoluments” is not whether the term could be interpreted in a restricted way, to refer only to benefits derived from discharging the duties of an office, but whether it was necessarily so interpreted at the time the Emoluments Clauses were drafted. As John Mikhail has painstakingly documented, the answer is no—and we don’t have to look at secondary sources, however authoritative (e.g., Black’s Dictionary) to draw that conclusion. Consider, for example, some of the constitutions ratified during the first of two major waves of state constitution-making in the Founding decade. Several included “common benefits clauses” that used the word “emoluments” in a way that simply defies narrow interpretation. The Pennsylvania Constitution (1776) provides: “That government is, or ought to be, instituted for the common benefit, protection and security of the people, nation or community; and not for the particular emolument of advantage of any single man, family or sett [sic] of men, who are a part only of that community[.]” Very similar language appears in the Virginia (1776), Vermont (1777), and New Hampshire (1784) constitutions. Far more elaborate historical arguments demonstrating the broad uses of the term have been presented elsewhere: see here, here and here. The bottom line is that there is an abundance of primary Founding-era material making use of the broad definition of emoluments, so it is wrong to use language from fact-bound case law to assert that the term is an inherently limited one.

 

The Plaintiffs Define “Emoluments” Too Broadly

Does that mean, as plaintiffs assert, that all types of benefits conferred on the president by foreign countries and U.S. states are prohibited emoluments? According to the Comptroller and OLC opinions, clearly not.

A number of opinions explain that officers do not need to forego fixed benefits to which they are entitled for reasons manifestly unrelated to and uninfluenced by their office. This is a common-sense interpretation of the Clauses that avoids rigidity for rigidity’s sake, where denial of benefits would do nothing to serve the Clauses’ anti-corruption, anti-influence purpose.

For instance, the Comptroller and the OLC each independently concluded that President Ronald Reagan could collect ordinary retirement benefits from California, where he had served as the state governor, without violating the Domestic Emoluments Clause’s prohibition against the receipt of “emoluments” from a State. In its 1983 opinion, the Comptroller determined that President Reagan’s pension from California “cannot be construed as being in any manner received in consequence of his possession of the Presidency.” Coming to the same conclusion in its earlier 1981 opinion, the OLC also noted that “those [retirement] benefits are not emoluments in the constitutional sense” and their receipt does not “violate the spirit of the Constitution.” To support its reasoning, the OLC in turn relied on a 1964 opinion (not published) where it similarly decided the estate of President Kennedy was entitled to the naval retirement pay that had accrued during his presidency. Interpreting the Foreign Emoluments Clause “in the light of its basic purposes and principles,” it concluded he could receive payments to which he was entitled as a matter of law “prior to his taking office.”

The same principles support allowing officers to collect on certain kinds of money judgments, even from foreign powers. In a 1955 opinion, the Comptroller decided that an attorney in the Justice Department could receive a lump sum payment and lifetime annuity from the German government for his wrongful removal from the judgeship he held before he emigrated to the United States, as provided by German indemnification legislation. The Comptroller reasoned that those payments did not constitute emoluments from his former office, but rather “represent damages payable as a direct result of a moral and legal wrong.” Turning to its “spirit of the Constitution” analysis, the Comptroller had no trouble determining the payments were not problematic: they were “obviously . . . not intended to influence him as an officer of the United States,” were made under laws not specific to him, and were not payments voluntarily made by the German government but rather mandatory indemnification required by the Allied powers. In a 1954 opinion on the same matter, the OLC came to a slightly different place—the payments were not permitted to the extent they amounted to German retiree benefits—but like the Comptroller, it found that damages intended to redress injury were not prohibited emoluments.

Note what these opinions have in common: they generally allow the officer in question to collect payments or benefits that, patently, have nothing to do with and cannot possibly have been affected by his U.S. office. That 1983 Comptroller opinion put it best, and contains a line worth repeating: President Reagan was entitled to his pension because it “c[ouldn’t] be construed as being in any manner received in consequence of his possession of the Presidency.”

Applying this general rule, it makes sense that presidents are permitted to invest in U.S. Treasury bonds; and the rule also explains why wealth management solutions like blind trusts have long been accepted as workable resolutions to problems of conflict of interest. But it certainly doesn’t provide clearance for all profits derived from discretionary, “fair-market-value” transactions where the president is obviously and individually on one end of the sale.

 

The Justice Department Defines “Emoluments” Too Narrowly

A key move in the Justice Department’s brief is to rely heavily on a point of dubious significance: it asserts that “in every published OLC or Comptroller General opinion in which proposed conduct was determined to involve prohibited emoluments, the determination involved an employment relationship (or a relationship akin to an employment relationship) with the foreign government.”

If you think about it, there’s at least one common-sense explanation for the limited precedent: In general, the government employees on whose behalf these opinions were sought probably didn’t own hotel chains, lucrative licensing agreements, or hundreds of trademarks from which they derived significant foreign-based or domestic government-based income. Their thing of value, as civil servants, was their skill set, and thus the relevant question was whether they were constitutionally permitted to lend out that skill set to foreign governments or organizations with foreign state ties for payment.

A 1986 OLC opinion written by then-Deputy Assistant Attorney General Samuel Alito cuts against the assertion that whether the profit in question is derived from employment or personal services should be, by itself, dispositive. There, Alito determined that a NASA employee could indeed accept a fee for reviewing a PhD candidate's thesis for an Australian university. To get to this conclusion, Alito made two significant moves. First, uncertain as to whether a public university should be regarded a "foreign state," Alito instead decided to turn to the features of the proposed consultancy and consider whether they "raise[d] the kind of concern . . . that motivated" the prohibition’s enactment. This marks a functional, purpose-driven approach to the question of permissible benefits. Second, he suggested the following facts weigh against finding the fee a prohibited emolument: (1) the NASA scientist was not selected because of his position with the U.S. government, (2) the fee was an ordinary amount given the service to be rendered, (3) there was no reason for the officer to have "direct contact" with the university officials, and (4) the consultancy was "limited both in time and in substantive scope," and no "continuing relationship" was anticipated.

Note that the fact the scientist would be acting in an employment or personal services capacity did not automatically render the payment an emolument. This is the key takeaway from this opinion, and it is at odds with the Justice Department’s claim that employment is the make-or-break issue when it comes to determining whether a benefit or payment is an emolument. Second, consider the implications of the first and fourth points Alito highlighted. The scientist’s selection for the job and associated payment had nothing to do with his U.S. office, which is not a conclusion that can be readily drawn about the services purchased by foreign and state government employees newly flocking to Trump International Hotel. It may suggest the permissibility of accepting profits from truly routine transactions by truly routine hotel customers, including some government diplomats—but this possibility is undercut by Alito’s reference to the extremely limited nature of the permitted relationship and transaction in question.

The Justice Department is understandably leaning hard on the idea that an emolument must be received specifically as a function of office or employment. After all, without this very specific qualification, its argument for the permissibility of accepting profits from ordinary transactions falls apart. Two OLC opinions make this clear.

A 1982 OLC opinion determined that the Foreign Emoluments Clause barred an employee of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission from working on his leave time for an American firm contracted by a Mexican government agency to review the design of a government-owned nuclear power plant. And a 1993 OLC opinion concluded that law firm partners serving as non-government advisors on the Administrative Conference of the United States could not accept partnership earnings “where some portion of that share is derived from the partnership’s representation of a foreign government” without triggering the constitutional prohibition. In the 1993 opinion, the OLC actually dismissed the argument that the conference member was not subject to the foreign government's “control” as “not decisive.” Instead, the OLC concluded that the portion of partnership profits the conference member would receive "would be a function of the amount paid to the firm by the foreign government," such that "the partnership would in effect be a conduit for that government." Acceptance of that portion of income was therefore a prohibited emolument (OLC reconsidered this opinion in 2010, but only with respect to whether the members held an “Office of . . . Trust” for purposes of the Foreign Emoluments Clause).

In these opinions, the OLC simply did not care that there was nothing out of the ordinary about the payments in these cases from a transactional or fair-market perspective. This runs contrary to the crux of the Justice Department’s argument for the innocuousness of Trump’s business-related foreign and domestic government income.

The textual kicker in all this is that even accepting the Justice Department’s insistence that “emolument” is best read to mean “profit arising from an office or employ” (Barclay’s A Complete and Universal English Dictionary on a New Plan (1774)), it doesn’t follow that all ordinary business transactions are okay: What if those transactions are, in number or value, enhanced by the prestige of the president’s office? Couldn’t the profit thereby derived then constitute “profit arising from an office or employ”? [Update, 5:17 pm: This is a line of argument that Marty Lederman compellingly and more thoroughly details here.]

It is to prevent this reading that the Justice Department argues that prohibited benefits must arise not just from the office but from the provision of services pursuant to that office. But this argument relies on a stunted conception of the power that an "Office of Profit or Trust" confers. To lift an example wholesale from Ben Wittes: If Trump owned a nondescript hotdog truck outside the White House that charged the same price for hotdogs as any other foodtruck and sold them to some incidental foreign customers, that would not be problematic under this definition of emoluments. If the truck were Trump-branded and either charged inflated prices or enjoyed inflated sales because Trump is president, and Saudi potentates lined up to put cash in his register, that would seem to constitute impermissible “profit arising from an office,” as a textual matter and in view of the historic Comptroller and OLC perspective.

At base, this is what plaintiffs are claiming—that the profits Trump is enjoying “aris[es] from” his office—so “aris[e] from” may be a definitional phrase the Justice Department is interpreting too narrowly. Trump’s status as the most powerful man in the world affects his business transactions, which are self-branded to boot. Not only is he enjoying booming business at his exclusive properties, in part thanks to foreign guests reportedly seeking to get in the president’s good graces, but he has also won Chinese trademark protection that, according to plaintiffs, he would not have received had he not become president.

Finally, on a practical note, notice the perverse upshot of the Justice Department’s fixation on employment and personal services as the place where the river divides. This assertion that payment for goods and business-related services is permissible but payment for employment and “personal services” is not means that a president can’t profit off his brain or body when it comes to cash from foreign sources or U.S. government entities, but can, without limitation, profit off the brains and bodies of those he can afford to employ in his private capacity. It’s what you might call a constitutional free pass for super-rich presidents.

The Comptroller and OLC opinions do not support such a result. They repudiate it.

***

Ultimately, the Justice Department’s view of emoluments marks a departure from the public Comptroller and OLC opinions in at least two critical respects. First, the new position is a clear abrogation of the practical “spirit of the Constitution” analysis on which the Comptroller and OLC have consistently relied to ensure a stringent rather than forgiving interpretation of what constitutes an impermissible benefit or undue influence (see, e.g., 1955 Comptroller Opinion, 1981 OLC Opinion, 1983 Comptroller Opinion; see also OLC 1962, noting “the sweeping nature of the constitutional prohibition”; OLC 1980, citing 1902 Attorney General Opinion stating the Foreign Emoluments Clause is “directed against every kind of influence by foreign governments upon officers of the United States” and the “prohibition should be given the broadest possible scope and application”). Second, the Justice Department’s quite specific argument that the president can profit from employing people to do business with foreign countries and government entities in the United States amounts to a strange carve-out, one that allows extremely wealthy officers with people in their employ to cash out as they wish on the advantages that the prestige of their office confers, without any consideration whatsoever of the sources of that cash. This interpretation is flatly at odds with executive branch tradition: I have yet to see a single opinion that has permitted an officer to collect profits even arguably enhanced by the power of his office, much less categorically benefit from discretionary, price-indeterminant transactions that foreign governments and U.S. government entities may enter into at will.

Note the issues I did not address here. What is not (yet) a point of debate in these particular lawsuits is whether these constitutional provisions apply to the president at all. The Domestic Emoluments Clause applies to the president by its express terms, and in its recent motion, the Justice Department doesn’t dispute CREW's claim, or the OLC’s preexisting determination, that the more obliquely phrased Foreign Emoluments Clause applies to the president as well (and notwithstanding the occasional argument to the contrary).

In addition, as the suits proceed in federal court, we can expect much of the legal discussion to focus on jurisdictional hurdles. There’s a strong argument that the courts don’t have a role to play, and that presidential corruption rising to the level of an emoluments violation is a political question whose resolution properly lies with Congress. Though the congressional suit spearheaded by Senator Richard Blumenthal and Representative John Conyers, Jr. alleges that Trump has failed to come to Congress for requisite permission in accepting foreign emoluments, Congress’s best recourse be impeachment proceedings. (Or if it so chose, Congress could avail itself of a lot of options short of impeachment, but in the words of Charles Black, Jr., circa 1974, “what an enormous if.” Recall that the House of Representatives has the power to demand Trump’s tax returns but has not exercised it.)

But as for the substantive question of whether the Comptroller and OLC of yore would have signed off on the Justice Department’s blessing of all monies flowing in by way of business transactions, the answer is “no.”

The poet and journalist Angye Gaona was arrested. The Colombian government wants to silence her to keep the darkness of genocide. Angye Gaona Poet and witness stopped to think, Colombia, the country where the state has converted the act of thinking a crime. Angye Gaona, it is part of the committee organizing the International Festival of Poetry of Medellín.

Urgent international action is by his release and to denounce the Colombian state maintains more than 7,500 people jailed for "crimes of opinion" we are facing a real dictatorship camouflaged.

is an intolerable situation: each day they stop, are murder or disappearance of a political opponent, student union, a sociologist, a peasant ... Repression by the Colombian State against the Colombian people to appease his social claims is brutal.

It is urgent that the world moves in solidarity!


Signatures should be sent to: Aurora

Tumanischwili : a_tumanoff@yahoo.com.ar

With only:

.. . I sign for the release of the poet Angye Gaona.

... With your first and last name, your "professional", your city and your country.

No link, but an email.

summary translation of this text : http://www.bolinf.es/wp/?p=28935



Colombia is a country untouchable. The country is run by the American right. Unfortunately, once again, politicians, men of straw of the American right and wrong we want to do, with some exceptions, the international community avoid criticizing the Colombian Government. The international community silent all the abuses committed in Colombia the field of human rights.

A sampling of recent abuse of Colombian politics:

Have 7,500 political prisoners;
Dispose of Cabinet members involved in drug trafficking;
Having a connection between government and paramilitary groups;
Having a president also denounced for buying journalists
To win some voters, they believe they killed terrorists while the military has murdered innocent young people.

would have thought the international community if another country such as Ecuador, Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia, etc.. This area had committed such acts?

Colombia is the only country in South America where U.S. bases are located and the Americans as corrupt Colombian politicians to believe that the Americans provide development assistance but this is false. Today, after the nightmare of Alvaro Uribe, Juan Manuel Santos chairs the country, the very man who chose to continue the policy of his predecessor. He was Minister of Defence under President Uribe with an army guilty of corruption and connections with the paramilitaries.

Day by day, human rights are trampled.

In the second week of January, the Government continued to imprison citizens opponents. One of felonies was the last stop Angye Gaona , Colombian poet and journalist, a woman who contends with the lowest single offense was to denounce the excesses that are discussed above. The government also as the prior art practice of Uribe's arrest disable members of associations which are respect for human rights. Angye was arrested with two students and a trade unionist.

Their technique: First they imprison people without charge, they keep them imprisoned for a year or so, to release them, saying they are innocent. In this way, they succeed to dismantle the social movements.

As for Kabila, we join the demand for the immediate issuance of Angye Gaona and all political prisoners who meet the Colombian jails. And we ask the Community Internationalequ'elle an end to excesses against human rights committed by the Colombian Government.

          How Much Does It Cost To Buy A Great White Shark   
In the Arab world, Islam and Western democracy means dictatorship

by Abdenur Prado - posted Friday, February 11, 2011
Source: UMMA . COM

The West finances dictators in the Middle East and the Arab world for over a century.
pro-democracy demonstrations against dictatorships supported by the West in the Arab world, shows once again the immense hypocrisy of our leaders. Which side Western governments are, with the demonstrators or the dictators? The answer is simple: the side of those who generate millions for the benefit of Western multinational corporations.

But that does not surprise anyone. It is well known that the West has funded more than a century of dictatorships in the Middle East and the Arab world because it is through the autocracies that [the West] were able to control the resources of this region. Even if this leads to the exploitation and misery of people facing decommissioning, orchestrated by the International Monetary Fund, their social services in order to repay foreign debt generated by the millions in arms purchases in the West ... As the aspirations of civil society, increasing poverty, torture and repression, lack of civil liberties and human rights ... No Western leader does not care at all. And all have shown, continuously, without exception, for over a century. Remarks made recently by Henry Kissinger are revealing in this regard: "We've had five presidents who have considered Hosni Mubarak as the best ally of the U.S. objectives in the region. "

Just out of the archives all the statements of Western leaders who praise the Arab tyrants: their economic policies, their continued political stability, their contributions to international security, that they safeguard secularism and prevent the advance of Islamist movements ... In short, for submission to the dictates of Western financial markets and the International Monetary Fund.

This overview does only one variable: whether or not the connivance with the State of Israel. This underscores the critical role of Israel vis-à-vis the maintenance of dictatorships in the Arab world, a fact corroborated by the comments made by Netanyahu in support of Ben Ali and Mubarak as well as decades of collusion with the family Royal Saudi monarchy and other issues of colonialism. No surprise then to learn that Israeli diplomacy has done everything possible to save Mubarak. It is true that Israel has cause for concern, not only for the danger posed by the rise of political Islam, but also because the democratic governments that might arise would maintain not only their country's complicity in the genocide of the Palestinian people. The open border between Gaza and Sinai is crucial for the survival of the Palestinian people. This is a convincing argument in favor of democracy in Egypt and the Middle East! And
"Islamism" in all this? It serves as a bogeyman to justify the support of dictatorships "secularists." However, it obscures the fact that the majority of parties "Islamists" in the Arab world accepted the idea of parliamentary democracy.
An example of this paradigm is that the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. In 1944 the founder, Hassan al-Banna, supported the participation in parliamentary elections, saying that the Egyptian constitution was "Islamic" because it recognized that the authority resides in the people, ensured the decision-making through consultation (Shura) and respect for individual freedoms. In some of his writings, he defends parliamentary democracy: "The bases of political organization based on the system of parliamentary representation does not contradict the fundamental principles that Islam has set in organization of power. "Since its founding, the Muslim Brotherhood have repeatedly stated that their intention is not to take power, but to educate society and to influence the system for Islamic ideals in justice being implemented. Despite this, they are portrayed as villains by the media manipulation and by Western governments. (I'm not a fan of the Muslim Brotherhood, but I am against their demonization. For their positions, see their website in English).

There is talk now of returning to Tunisia Rachid al-Ghannouchi, founder and historic leader of the party-Nahda in Tunisia, after 22 years of exile. According Ghannouchi, Islam provides a more fertile than that of the West to carry out democracy. There is a book of Azam Tamimi, where he studied his thought in detail, Rachid Ghannouchi: A Democrat within Islam, published by Oxford University Press. Among his ideals: "an Islamic system based on the will of the majority, free elections, free press, minority protection, equality between laity and religious parties, and achieving complete women's rights in all areas, participation in elections to the freedom to dress as they wish, the right to divorce, and even the right to be head of state. The role of Islam is to provide an ethical system. "

An ethical system that necessarily involves the abolition of usury Financial, which provides a minimum of social services for the entire population and the establishment mechanisms that prevent the accumulation of capital in the hands of a few individuals. An equally valid for Spain than for Egypt.

In Brief: Islamist movements are champions of democracy against tyranny corrupt funded by the West. It is curious to see how the terms were reversed at the point of passing the opposition, which demands democracy, for ... absolutists, and dictators that suppress civil liberties as saviors. The world upside down? The world seen through a mass media manipulation. That is to say, from a perspective of the interests of major Western financial corporations.

          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.”


Here’s a video of Pops and OP performing You Go to My Head.




          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!”

          China sanguine as Trump-Xi 'bromance' sours over North Korea, Taiwan   

China sanguine as Trump-Xi 'bromance' sours over North Korea, TaiwanBy Ben Blanchard and Christian Shepherd BEIJING (Reuters) - China reacted relatively calmly on Friday after a series of diplomatic broadsides by the United States, expressing anger over new arms sales by Washington to Taiwan but hoping ties could soon be brought back on track. U.S. officials have said President Donald Trump is growing increasingly frustrated with China over its inability to restrain North Korea's arms and missile programs. This week, the United States imposed sanctions on two Chinese citizens and a shipping company for helping North Korea's weapons programs, announced a $1.4 billion arms sale for Taiwan, and said it would like sick Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo to be treated "elsewhere".

          Lantus doesn't agree with me?   

Hi everyone!

I'm new to the forum and pretty new to T1D - I was diagnosed on May 21st, 2017. I had a pretty typical experience leading up to that day (hospitalized with DKA, A1C 12%, weighed 85 pounds as a 19-year-old 5'6'' female), although since then it's been anything but.

I was put on 8 units of Lantus at night and 2 of Humalog with meals to start off, and I immediately had a severe reaction to the insulin. My legs, arms, and face swelled up to the point where it was painful to move, and it's only slightly gotten better over a month later (doctors confirmed it's an extremely rare reaction to starting insulin therapy). I'm also exhausted yet can't sleep at night, and have awful "brain fog". I'm up to 110 pounds now (I've always been around 105 naturally), which is healthier, but I don't want to gain too much more weight. These side effects only appeared once I started taking insulin. I've done extensive bloodwork - my liver, thyroid, kidneys, heart, cholesterol etc. are all textbook.

The thing is, I could live with all of this if my blood sugars were well-controlled. However, I'm typically at 13-16 mmol/L in the morning, drop down to 8-12 during the day, and go high again at night. My endo told me to increase my Lantus dose, and I'm now taking 20 units at night. I'm taking a lot of Humalog to correct (25 units some days) but it's never more than a temporary fix. The side effects get worse every time I increase my Lantus, and I'm actually getting worse overnight/morning readings with the higher dose. I am getting a Dexcom G5 next week, so that should give me more insight about what's happening throughout the day.

I'm meticulously counting carbs (~50g a day - I was already low-carb before diagnosis), walking after meals, and correcting when needed, but my TDD has just skyrocketed without any improvement in my "baseline" blood sugar readings. I know it seems counterintuitive, but it feels like I had better readings and less side effects on a lower TDD (~20 units compared to ~45 now). Is it possible that Lantus just doesn't agree with me? I'm just very frustrated with the whole experience.

Thanks!!

The par five gives the golfer the best chance to score a birdie. A birdie is any score for any given hole that is one stroke below par. This hole also allows the golfer to score and eagle. The eagle is a score produced on a hole which is two under par. Taking this a step further taylormade r11 driver, you would score an albatross if you go three under par on a par five. The ultimate score you could achieve would be to hole out a par five in one shot. This would be a called a condor.
 
Then they run after the ball and without a moment's hesitation they'll hit it again and again and again. They seem to take one quick look in the direction they want to go then hit it. If you want to know the secret to a free- flowing golf swing then here it is.
 
To guard against that happening taylormade r9 fairway wood, when the downswing starts, pretend your upper body is in a cast, and that your torso and arms move as one piece. That way, the arms don't get left behind, and the hands don't move ahead. It's all rotation ping g20 irons, and the momentum that your swing builds up on the way down will accelerate the club through the ball.
 
Most golf courses adhere to strict playing times on weekends, unless of course you are playing private courses. Because of this the recreational golfer needs to exercise some common sense to keep play going. So it becomes necessary to occasionally be remiss when it comes to the rules. Give yourself a few minutes to locate a lost ball and then just drop another one if you can't find it. If your tee shot goes out-of-bounds don't hit another tee shot.
 
The average golfer should consider using a 90 compression golf ball. The ball will actually fly farther taylormade r9 super tri, assuming you hit it correctly, than one with a higher compression.
 

The game is played on a golf course. Each golf course is different in design. The course is divided into eighteen sections. Each section is called a hole. The various holes are different in length. Each hole is rated as one of three types of par. The three pars are, par three mizuno jpx800 irons, par four and par five. The higher the par callaway diablo octane fairway wood, the longer the hole.

          [uhindsv46]:Obstacles to help golf to make a more interesting - POCO空间(POCO.CN)   

If you include these 3 techniques in your workout routine, you’ll travel never about, power generation or distance back disgruntled.


Plyometrics are each exercise the muscle is ill, where immediately, Simply put, is the muscle stretch (i.e. charged) before it is completed. A good example is medicine ball horizontal turns and standing golf swings. According to a recent study published in the national strength and conditioning Association’s (NSCA) journal, amateur golfers significantly after only eight weeks strength training increased their driving distances and includes both.
 
It is every golfer’s worst case scenario – you are great golf, have a perfect swing, the perfect attitude and you were you able to get rid of slice, which was on the back. No matter how well everything is finding even the best golf player plug itself (or) occasionally a sand trap, caught stuck in the grass or behind a huge tree on the golf course. Unfortunately, what the game interesting to make. Without you the game would be dedicated to golfers probably for even the most boring. Obstacles to help golf to make a more interesting and challenging game, and you learn that fall to estimate when you find the best ways to get out of them.
 
Consistency is critical for your golf game overall, and always from a sand trap is not exclusive to this. It is hard to control a golf ball in the sand. Golf balls not really run sand and difficult to control one putt from a sand trap in. In addition you probably with an upward slope of the trap will deal before you again are out on the course. Therefore the only really reliable way is to use the wedge of a sand trap and try enough lift to the ball to remove the sand.
 
Handle size is probably the most important part, the Golf Club to properly grasp. Too small a grip may cause that, turn in your hands, a result unconsciously squeeze the Association of the Club at the bottom of the swing, leading to a closed blade. The grip too large and the Club can come loose effect, open the club face. Either way, will you not too good, solid contact with any amount of consistency will make.
 
Along with ensuring that the grip size is right for your hands, ensure that you do not play with worn handles. Handles are carried through normal wear and oxidation damage due to moisture out and smooth. Tired or exhausted grip is not traction provide, you need to keep the Golf Club stable throughout your swing. Replace can handles is simple and inexpensive and a world of difference in your golf game.
 
You want to able to grab the club that, while keep your arms relaxed. Keep only enough pressure on it to it from sliding around in your hands. If you apply enough pressure Golf Club is turn and rotate during the swing. To ensure that you have it right, you have someone try and pull the Golf Club of your grip. She should not be able to be. If you can strengthen your grip a little. Just make sure you your arms relaxed to keep.

          [uhindsv46]:How to achieve golf better position - POCO空间(POCO.CN)   

With exercises for golf, enhance your swing, includes the use of a gym ball, exercise tubing, gym and even a weighted medicine ball. These are all cheap golf training tools can have a dramatic impact on your game.


I often asked how I on what some people call Golf fever caught. Think again admired I often good golfers where I caddied As remembered I me always excited when I saw that a good golfer to go in direction of the first tee box. There was, in anticipation of a huge drive as the golfers teed his ball reminder on how maneuvered you the golf ball field discount, to observe climb with a steady increase in the shot, how it went into the distance to follow. I had and then find out how you, the deeds by grab a stick or one close to nearby branch of arbitrary length and imitated their swing. I use to try bucket golf balls from the practice area and achieving remarkable hitting refrain. It made me a better golfer trying.
 
Nadler was a different kind of golfers. Liked to play a low draw shot or fade shot. Your ability to move a ball in any direction was scary. Go up and over trees was not your game. Nadler steered your golf shots around you as you navigate a vehicle on an obstacle course was. Your golf game was just before the green kind as the ball and watch bounce and roles in the direction of the Flagstick past a sand trap. Nadler could draw what ever the ball to sand and trees, obstacles that were in their way. I often thought eyes had your golf ball, start just because as your golf shots and come back direction would the Flagstick. It was amazing to watch. I learned from her that just shot shot not only Golf need was to master to play great golf. Also play the old bump and run approach is an alternative to play game, you was of a master.
 
The goal of exercise position is both static and dynamic balance to develop to improve functional stability during the swing. The postural muscles located throughout the body. The main task of these muscles is to keep the musculoskeletal system and common structures in their proper orientation so that the larger and stronger muscles can produce the desired body movements to keep while good balance.
 
I call this powerful little exercise “Lying Superman.” Believe the amazing difference which this exercise can do, in your strength, until you actually do’ll – so go for it! All what you have to do is to lie on your stomach on the floor with your hands on the sides. Increase your upper body (chest), the arms and legs as high as you can. Keep it for a number of 10. And that’s it! Just do this simple exercise for 2 sets every day and can leave low back pain!
 
Play golf at an optimum level requires muscle strength, strength and endurance. In contrast to what most people think long training sessions, and beat hundreds of balls will not improve these components. In fact, run only physical injuries (from overuse) and much frustration.

          [uhindsv46]:Remember to Build Your Golf Swing - POCO空间(POCO.CN)   
There are number of things to consider if you land in a sand trap. One basic rule you must always follow, is that you cannot touch the sand before you make contact with the ball. Doing this will invoke a penalty in the way of an extra stoke added to your score. Also, when you get in the sand beside your ball, make sure that you hover your club above the ball.
 
One of the basic rules to good putter swing technique, is keeping the head of the putter square to the ball when you strike it. Keeping the head of the putter square when striking the ball, will ensure a straight shot.
 
When your hand is placed under the golf grip (facing the sky), or on top of it (facing the ground), you will in all probability alter the swing plane direction as you swing back away from the ball. Remember to build your golf swing around the design of the golf club which means that your rest it on the ground and point it towards your intended target. When you swing it away there are two basic but very important stages that your golf club should travel through.
 
It is unobstructed visualisation directed unhindered to the brain which in turn sets the body in motion. Pure and simple.
 
If you raise your left heel during the backswing, place it back firmly on the ground at the beginning of the downswing and maintain both feet in this position throughout impact with the ball. They are the foundation of a smooth, solid swing. This will start the weight shift back to the left side. The left hip now starts the downswing, pulling the hands, arms and club down to the midpoint position.
 

What do the hands do? After they have ensured that the club begins the swing on the correct path, they help lift the club to the top of the backswing, but after the first few feet the club moves away from the ball, it is primarily the body that moves the club. From the top of the backswing, the hands do nothing more than hold onto the club for the rest of the way.

          [uhindsv46]:Their Qwn Private Golf Course - POCO空间(POCO.CN)

There are many clubs that have their own private golf course and you will have to become a member to join them. You will find that you can learn how to play golf when you join one of these clubs. They will usually have golf lessons that you can take advantage of.
 
The turning and rotation of the shoulders also acts as a remedy to fix the slice. Your body stance should be adjusted in a position your 80 % body weight must be exerted on your back foot. The head must be still and should not be moving. The eyes must be staring at ball all the way through the swing.
 
The moment you are performing the backswing, your shoulders must be facing squarely at the impact. Your target is to strike the ball after the backswing thus your body position must be facing squarely. Don't try to open your arms too wide as it will cause the ball to fly to the left of the target end thus causing a slice.
 
The divot is a scrapped off that helps you to identify the target end. It helps you avoid the wrong strike positions that are left or right to the target end. The ball when fly over should be matching the divot.
 
A driver is the longest club in your bag. You should imagine swinging the club in a wide, smooth arc in a sweeping motion. You literally sweep the ball of the tee.
Irons are used in a different way.
 

The two basic categories of its available for purchase are leather and synthetic. Each type of golf putter grips offers different benefits. Synthetic golf grips are produced in a wide variety of sizes which makes it easy for a golf player of any size to find the perfect fit for their hands. They are also specially designed with textured surfaces to ensure that the golf club will not easily slip in your hand during game play.

Here is another recently known personality who found solace in the arms of Press TV: "Former US diplomat Charles W. Freeman says he doubts whether the current Israeli policies can guarantee the regime's survival in the Middle East. "I don't see how Israel can continue to survive in the long term as a state in the Middle East if it is not prepared to deal with respect and consideration with its Arab neighbors specially the Palestinians," Freeman, a former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, said in an exclusive interview with Press TV. In mid March, Freeman turned down Director of National Intelligence (NIC) Dennis C. Blair's offer to be the chairman of the body. His abrupt withdrawal came after Freeman, who described "Israeli violence against Palestinians" as a key barrier to Mideast peace, drew fire from the Israeli lobby. "The tactics of the Israel Lobby plumb the depths of dishonor and indecency and include character assassination, selective misquotation, the willful distortion of the record, the fabrication of falsehoods, and an utter disregard for the truth," he wrote in a statement after his withdrawal." http://www.presstv.ir/detail.aspx?id=90342&sectionid=351020202

A portable device to compress a bow comprising a pulley system with a block and tackle and fixed pulleys which, by wiring, are connected to a set of fastening supports with fastening ends. The fastening ends fasten and pull the ends of the arms or limbs of a bow, under traction exerted by the block and tackle. The block and tackle has a drive portion and a brake controlling the traction and release of the cables connected to the fastening supports. Upon pulling the drive portion, the block and tackle produces the approach between the first and the second pulleys. This displacement between the pulleys acts on the cables which, through the fixed pulleys, cause the approach between the fastening supports. This displacement of the fastening supports overcomes the resistance of the bow and compresses it. Once the desired compressive level is reached, the brake or blockage is actuated.

Masonic Mass Murder on the Somme 101 Years Ago

 “Testament of Youth,” poignantly dramatizes lives shattered by Judeo Masonic First World War.
On July 1,1916, General Douglas Haig, a Freemason, began the Battle of the Somme which by November resulted in the death of one million white, "Christian"British patriots in their prime. Fathers, sons, husbands, brothers, lovers. War is a ruse by which the globalist satanic elite kills patriots under the guise of national duty.  
 
“When we started to fire, we just had to load and reload. They went down in their hundreds. We didn’t have to aim, we just fired into them. ” German machine gunner.
from July 12, 2015
by Henry Makow Ph.D.

butchers1.jpg
About 10 million soldiers died in battle on both sides in World War One, one of the costliest wars in history.  The needless slaughter in trench warfare is usually portrayed by the Masonic-controlled media and education system as an unintended consequence. 

In fact, these wars are orchestrated by the Illuminati Jewish bankers and their Masonic minions to kill Christians in order to degrade Western civilization in advance of the Satanic NWO now clearly manifesting itself. (See, World War One- First Christian HolocaustRitual human sacrifice to their god Moloch may also be a factor.

All wars are designed to enrich and empower the bankers while destroying and demoralizing humanity. Warmongering “patriotism” is a ruse. The sooner gullible non-Satanists stop falling on a sword, the better.
I’m going to focus on the Battle of the Somme, one of the biggest battles of the first world war. My information is based on John Laffin’s British Butchers and Bunglers of World War One, (1988, p. 63ff.) 

Haig-web-cropped.jpg
(left, Douglas Haig, Elgin Lodge #91)

Both General Douglas Haig, Commander in Chief, Western Front,  and his principal co-planner Sir Henry Rawlinson were Freemasons. The Somme offensive (“The Big Push”) was intended to end the stalemate and win the war. The Allies had 700,000 men, a 7-1 numerical superiority. Haig and Rawlinson anticipated losing 500,000 men. 

The plan was simple: to bomb the Germans for five days and nights then walk to the enemy trench and kill the remaining soldiers or capture those who surrendered. 

However, after 5 days of bombing, the German trenches and their defences were barely scratched. The English neglected to reconnoitre or observe this from the air.  The Germans just had to shoot their machine guns, reload and shoot again. The same type of attack continued from the 1st of July until November 1916. Over a million men died; 58,000 on the first day.

On July 1 1916, 11 British divisions attacked on a 13-mile front. By 7.30 am the six German divisions finished breakfast, wiped their faces with their napkins, and carried their machine guns from comfortable deep cellars. They began spraying the attackers who were advancing in neat rows, “to maintain order.” 

 
WF7.ADVANCE.JPG
A German machine gunner wrote, “We were surprised to see them walking, we had never seen that before. The officers went in front. One was carrying a walking stick…When we started to fire, we just had to load and reload. They went down in their hundreds. We didn’t have to aim, we just fired into them. “

A German officer reported his impression of the attack. “Whole sections appeared to fall. All along the line, Englishmen could be seen throwing their arms into the air and collapsing, never to move again. Badly wounded rolled about in agony, while badly wounded crawled into shell-holes for shelter. “

yourcountryneedsyou.jpg
John Laffin: “Of the 110,000 men who attacked, 60,000 were killed or wounded on this one day. About 20,000 lay dead between the lines. Haig and Rawlinson were directly responsible for the assumption bombardment would cut barbed wire and render the Germans vulnerable.  The Germans lost an estimated 8000 men on July 1. 2000 were taken prisoner.” (64) 

A hospital station dealt with 10,000 casualties in the first 48 hours. A surgeon wrote:  ”Streams of ambulances a mile long waited to be unloaded. The whole area of the camp, a field of six acres, was completely covered with stretchers placed side-by-side, each with its suffering or dying man. We surgeons were hard at it in the operating theatre, a good hut holding four tables. Occasionally we made a brief look around to select from the thousands of patients those few we had time to save. It was terrible. (73) 

Haig’s chronicler Colonel Boraston wrote that the attack, “bore out the conclusions of the British High Command, and amply justified the tactical methods employed.” (No doubt these men were all Freemasons.) 

sons.jpg
Laffin writes: “This is an outrageous statement. It is more accurate to call 1 July 1916, as H. L’Etang does, ‘probably the greatest disaster to British arms since Hastings….Certainly never before nor since has such wanton pointless carnage been seen…’ (70)

Laffin bemoans the  complete “absence of cleverness” in the military strategy. He emphasizes that, “high casualties were a basic rule of the game and simply had to be accepted.” (76)

Who knows how the world would be different if the cream of that generation of Christians had not been trampled into the mud of France in 1915-18?

There is simply no explanation for sending wave after wave of men to their slaughter other than that this was the deliberate goal. Any sane general would have stopped the attack as soon as it became apparent that the strategy was a failure. 

Western society is controlled by a satanic cult whose goal is to degrade and exploit humanity.
It’s time we stopped we being complicit in our own destruction.

          “Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much.” - Our Lady of Fatima, 1917   
“Certain fashions will be introduced   that will offend Our Lord very much.”   - Our Lady of Fatima, 1917
Free EBOOK.  Recall Our Lady warned the world in 1917!  How much worse is the scandal these days with immodest dress especially in Summer
http://www.fatima.org/essentials/requests/mid.pdf

Summer unfortunately brings with it the height of immodesty, in both men and women.  This is a good time, then, to remember that words of Our Lady of Fatima who warned us that "more souls go to hell for sins of the flesh (i.e. sins against the 6thand 9th Commandments) than for any other reason." Our Lady of Fatima told Jacinta, "Certain fashions will be introduced that will gravely offend My Son." Jacinta also said, “People who serve God should not follow fashions. The Church has no fashions; Our Lord is always the same.”
Shorts, sleeveless tops, slacks on women, mini-skirts, swimwear, bare midriffs, tight and sheer clothing would all fit into this category of immodest fashions. Sadly, few priests warn their flock of the great danger associated with immodesty of dress, that of losing one’s soul for all eternity.  So many girls and young women are growing up today without direction and, like so many misled sheep, are following immoral fashions to the destruction of souls.


The Bible tells us, "In like manner I wish women to be decently dressed, adorning themselves with modesty and dignity, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, but with good works, such as become women professing godliness." (1 Tim. 2:9-10)  
The following are various warnings the Catholic Church has given to the faithful, for the protection of their immortal souls.

CHURCH STATEMENTS ON MODESTY OF DRESS
Pope Benedict XV wrote in his encyclical Sacra Propediem on January 6, 1921:
“One cannot sufficiently deplore the blindness of so many women of every age and station. Made foolish by a desire to please, they do not see to what degree the indecency of their clothing shocks every honest man and offends God. Most of them would formerly have blushed for such apparel as for a grave fault against Christian modesty. Now it does not suffice to exhibit themselves on public thoroughfares; they do not fear to cross the threshold of churches, to assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and even to bear the seducing food of shameful passion to the Holy Altar, where one receives the Author of Purity.”

On January 12, 1930, the Sacred Congregation of the Council, by mandate of Pope Pius XI, issued emphatic instructions on modesty of dress to all bishops:
“We recall that a dress cannot be called decent which is cut deeper than two fingers breadth under the pit of the throat, which does not cover the arms at least to the elbows, and scarcely reaches a bit beyond the knee. Furthermore, dresses of transparent material are improper. Let parents keep their daughters away from public gymnastic games and contests; but, if their daughters are compelled to attend such exhibitions, let them see to it that they are fully and modestly dressed. Let them never permit their daughters to don immodest garb.” 

Pope Pius XII said in 1954:
“Now many girls do not see anything wrong with following certain shameless styles (fashions) like so many sheep. They would surely blush if they could only guess the impressions they make and the feelings they evoke (arouse) in those who see them.” (July 17, 1954



Pope Pius XII seriously admonished Christian mothers: 
“The good of our soul is more important than that of our body; and we have to prefer the spiritual welfare of our neighbor to our bodily comforts… If a certain kind of dress constitutes a grave and proximate occasion of sin, and endangers the salvation of your soul and others, it is your duty to give it up…  O Christian mothers, if you knew what a future of anxieties and perils, of ill-guarded shame you prepare for your sons and daughters, imprudently getting them accustomed to live scantily dressed and making them lose the sense of modesty, you would be ashamed of yourselves and you would dread the harm you are making of yourselves, the harm which you are causing these children, whom Heaven has entrusted to you to be brought up as Christians.” (Pius XII to Catholic Young Women’s Groups of Italy)



The Canadian bishops in May of 1946 wrote:
“Man himself does not escape from the inclination of exhibiting his flesh: some go in public, stripped to the waist, or in very tight pants or in very scanty bathing suits. They thus commit offenses against the virtue of modesty. They may also be an occasion of sin (in thought or desire) for our neighbor.” 

Cardinal Pla y Daniel, Archbishop of Toledo, Spain, stated in 1959:
“A special danger to morals is represented by public bathing at beaches ... Mixed bathing between men and women, which is nearly always a proximate occasion of sin and a scandal, must be avoided.”

From a 1930 Letter of the Congregation of the Council:
“By virtue of the supreme apostolate which he wields over the Universal Church by Divine Will, our Most Holy Father Pope Pius XI has never ceased to inculcate, both verbally and by his writings, the words of St. Paul (1 Tim. 2:9-10), namely, ‘Women ... adorning themselves with modesty and sobriety ... and professing godliness with good works.’  Very often, when occasion arose, the same Supreme Pontiff condemned emphatically the immodest fashion of dress adopted by Catholic women and girls--which fashion not only offends the dignity of women and against her adornment, but conduces to the temporal ruin of the women and girls, and, what is still worse, to their eternal ruin, miserably dragging down others in their fall. It is not surprising, therefore, that all Bishops and other ordinaries, as is the duty of ministers of Christ, should in their own dioceses have unanimously opposed their depraved licentiousness and promiscuity of manners, often bearing with fortitude the derision and mockery leveled against them for this cause.”

 

From the Plenary Assembly of the Bishops of Brazil:

“Let the priests forcefully insist that women wear clothing which expresses modesty ...
     “Let women, at all times, but especially, as the Apostle Saint Paul teaches, when they are in church, dress with modesty. If they should dare to enter the church immodestly dressed, let them, as Canon Law commands (Canon 1262, par. 2), be judiciously put out and prevented from assisting at any function whatsoever.
     “Let those who are going to receive Holy Communion be decently dressed. Women whose heads are not covered and who are improperly dressed are to be excluded from the Sacrament, as Canon Law directs (Canons 855 & 1262, par. 2).”
St. Padre Pio, the stigmatist priest, who bore the bleeding wounds of Christ on his own body from 1918 until his death in 1968, refused to grant absolution to any woman who did not wear her skirt well below the knee.  He also insisted that women do not wear slacks. (Verified by mail at Padre Pio’s monastery.  Address: Rev. J. P. Martin, San Giovanni Rotondo 71013 FG Italy)

A General Pastoral Directive from 1915 reads: “Women must be decently dressed, especially when they go to church. The parish priest may, with due prudence, refuse them entrance to the church and access to the reception of the Sacraments, any and every time that they come to church immodestly dressed.”

St. John Chrysostom, Bishop of Constantinople and one of the 32 doctors of the Church, said the following regarding women who dress immodestly:   
"You carry your snare everywhere and spread your net in all places.  You allege that you never invited others to sin.  You did not indeed by your words, but you have done so by your dress and your deportment.  And much more effectively than you could by your voice.  When you have made another sin in his heart, how can you be innocent?  Tell me whom does this world condemn?  Whom do the judges in court punish?  Those who drink poison or those who prepare it and administer the fatal potion?  You are more criminal than those who poison the body.  You have given the death-dealing drink.  You murder not the body but the soul, and it is not to enemies do you do this nor are you urged on by any imaginary necessity nor provoked by injury.  But you do it out of foolish vanity and pride."  
Unfortunately, today's attire seems to have almost no boundaries. It is a disgrace for Christian women to expose their bodies, which are the temples of the Holy Ghost after baptism. A women who dresses immodestly commits a double sin:  
“You women who profane your bodies have been led by satan to soul destruction.  You expose your bodies not knowing the evil that comes into the minds of the beholder.  Therefore, your sin is twofold for you have led another to fall into sin!”

The Bible tells us: “Know you not that your members are the temple of the Holy Ghost, who is in you, whom you have from God: and you are not your own? For you are bought with a great price. Glorify and bear God in your body.” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)  Immodest dress is an offense to God and does not glorify God, but rather reduces the Christian woman to an object of lust and mocks the laws of God. Modesty in dress, on the other hand, helps safeguard the virtue of purity and is demanded by the moral law of God.  St. Cyprian writes: 
"Nothing so delights the faithful soul as the healthy consciousness of an unstained modesty. To have vanquished pleasure is the greatest pleasure; nor is there any greater victory than that which is gained over one's desires."

          Man Shoots Daughter While Teaching Gun Safety   
A man who was supposedly teaching his two sons about firearms safety allegedly pulled the trigger of his pistol and fired a shot that killed his young daughter. (Source.)

What a shame. I have to wonder if drugs were involved because I find it difficult to believe anyone could be that stupid unless under the influence. I mean that not so much that he may have accidentally and negligently fired the shot but that he allegedly repeatedly exercised extremely poor judgment in handling the pistol leading up to the fatal shot. His actions seemingly paved the way to her death. The nine year old son reportedly said the father had pointed the gun at him and at his brother repeatedly, this allegedly during a lesson about firearms safety. Then he reportedly shot his daughter and claimed he did not know the gun was loaded! It is mind boggling to think someone not under the influence of mind altering drugs was as brainless as to do all that.


My condolences go out to the rest of the family.


Be careful out there,

A sleeping woman was swallowed by sinkhole in central China after her bedroom collapsed during heavy rain.

The video, filmed in Shizhuling, Hunan Province on June 25, shows how the house partially collapsed when the sinkhole opened due to the unstable terrain composed of a network of caves and waterways.

 

 

Just like Jeff Bush in Florida a few years ago! Fears are growing for a 45-year-old mother in central China who was apparently swallowed by a sinkhole while she was sleeping in her bed.

It is her husband that rang the alarm on Saturday morning, when after hearing a loud boom, he entered his bedroom, and found a three-square-metre hole in the floor that swallowed a refrigerator, an electric fan and his wife.
The couple lives in Shizhuling, a village in the city of Lianyuan, which had been hard hit by heavy rains over the previous two days.

Search for the swallowed woman

Rescue teams launched a search for the missing woman – digging to a depth of 15 metres – but the work had to be called off when conditions became too dangerous. The excavation in the sodden ground even led to the partial collapse of a neighbouring property.

The deadly sinkhole was most certainly due to geological landscape in the area made of a network of caves and underground waterways.

DEVELOPING: Mysterious boom shakes houses and alarms residents in St. Helens, Oregon


A mysterious sound resembling a thunderous explosion was heard around 8 p.m. on June 25 in the St. Helens area. Curious citizens flooded social media with questions about the origin of the loud boom that some said shook homes and rattled windows. According to St. Helens Police Chief Terry Moss, the first reports of the sound came in at 8:22 p.m. Moss said his department fielded 11 calls regarding the boom, mainly from residents on the west side of town.
The cause of the sound has not been determined. Moss said this time of year is marked by frequent firework and “loud boom” reports. Without more definitive information, Moss said the matter would be considered closed. There was a viral reaction to the sound on Facebook, where reports of the boom were contentiously debated and numerous theories were offered. READ MORE


BIRTH PANGS: 900 Quakes in Yellowstone, 40 quakes near Lake Tahoe, 40 Quakes in N. Iceland


There are currently several seismic swarms taking place around the world. Nobody knows when they are going to stop and more frightening what they are going to produce. Yellowstone Supervolcano earthquake swarm reaches 878 events in just two weeks. The earthquake swarm hitting the Yellowstone national Park is currently slowing down, but more than 900 quakes have already hit near West Yellowstone on the western edge of the National Park in the last 2 weeks. But there is
virtually no risk of the volcano erupting – USGS hasn’t raised either the volcano alert level or the aviation color. The current earthquake swarm began on June 12. A week later, the USGS put out a statement to say that 464 earthquakes had been recorded, with the largest being magnitude 4.4. This is the highest number of earthquakes at Yellowstone within a single week in the past five years. At the time, a spokesperson for the USGS said “slowly winding down,” adding that “no other geological activity has been detected.” However, in a newly released statement about the ongoing swarm, seismologists from the University of Utah said 878 events have now been recorded at Yellowstone National Park.

Planet X Incoming: Birth Pangs May, 2017  



          This Popular Island Destination Is Exporting Monkeys for Cruel Experiments   
Mauritius is one of the world's largest suppliers of non-human primates for inhumane medical experiments.

Mauritius, a small island in the Indian Ocean, is a dream holiday destination for tourists from all over the world. It is famous for its beautiful beaches, lagoons, tropical climate, heritage sites, lush forests and wildlife. Yet, this idyllic location is also infamous for a sinister reason—the cruel exploitation of its population of monkeys. Mauritius is one of the world’s largest participants in the cruel trade of supplying non-human primates for experiments. In 2016, 8,245 long-tailed macaques were exported from Mauritius to the USA, Canada and Europe with 3,522 imported by the USA, the largest importer of monkeys from Mauritius.

In Mauritius, the long-tailed macaque (Macaca fascicularis) lives freely. However, the species is not considered indigenous, despite having been well-established on the island for about 400 years. Although the species is listed on Appendix II of the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), there exists no legislation to protect the primates of Mauritius. Instead, they are widely persecuted and exploited.

Historically, monkeys were trapped in the wild to be shipped overseas. Following international condemnation of the trade in wild-caught primates, tens of thousands of primates are now held in farms across Mauritius. Many of these animals were captured from the wild and are now imprisoned in these farms and used for breeding. Denied their freedom in the lush foliage of their jungle homes, these individuals spend their lives behind bars, on concrete. Their offspring are transported as ‘cargo’ in small wooden crates on airplanes to laboratories around the world to feed the international research industry.

Tourism is a key pillar of the economy of Mauritius and contributes significantly to the economic growth of the island. Mauritius is also promoting the island’s image as a green, eco-friendly tourist destination. The reputation of Mauritius as a country where the environment is valued is being put at risk by the export of monkeys for cruel experiments. Added to this is the introduction of recent regulations that will, for the first time, allow such experiments to be carried out on the island itself. The main species to be used in the research will be the country’s population of long-tailed macaques.

It cannot be argued that the economic benefits of the monkey trade and potential revenue from experiments are more important than tourism. Even a brief glance at the figures shows this controversial trade, worth less than 2 percent of Mauritian export, is economically insignificant compared with the income that Mauritius receives from its tourism industry. It is well-established that if a country develops a reputation for unkind treatment of animals, it has a very strong negative effect on tourism.

An additional factor to consider which is equally puzzling is that Hinduism is the largest religion in Mauritius. The country has the third highest percentage of Hindus in the world after Nepal and India. Lord Hanuman, the monkey god, is one of the most popular idols in the Hindu religion and is worshipped as a symbol of physical strength, perseverance and devotion. The trade in primates on Mauritius clearly is contrary to the very concept of Hindu culture and society which emphasises the spiritual equality of all living beings.

There are concerns that the introduction of animal experiments to Mauritius is primarily to provide a new market for the primate breeding companies and a reaction to problems with airlines refusing to transport primates for research purposes, moves to impose tighter restrictions on the import of primates within the European Union and a growing public concern about the use of primates in research. Animal researchers and companies may be looking to travel to Mauritius to carry out research that would not be allowed to take place in their own country.

A glance at the new regulations governing the experiments shows that substantial sections have simply been taken from EU and UK legislation, but this has not been consistently done, so there are significant gaps and contradictions. For example, there is no provision for governmental inspections of laboratories. Nor are there any rules in the regulations about the housing, environment and enrichment to be provided to animals. Furthermore, transparency and accountability appear to be absent because, although there is a requirement for researchers to submit records to the government, there is no provision for the government to subsequently put such information into the public domain. 

The long-tailed macaque is the most widely traded primate species for research worldwide and the most widely-traded mammal on the CITES database. In the laboratory, these primates may suffer substantially, including the effects of poisoning (such as vomiting, internal bleeding, weight loss, organ failure and even death) after being forced to consume large quantities of chemicals or drugs in toxicity tests or face being subjected to major brain surgery, their skulls cut open and devices implanted into their brains.

Examples of recent research carried out on long-tailed macaques in the USA makes disturbing reading: 1) experiments that have attempted to mimic traumatic military injuries; 2) forced addiction to recreational drugs such as alcohol and cocaine; 3) injections with phencyclidine (PCP or ‘angel dust’) and 4) forced inhaling of cigarette smoke several hours a day (for some monkeys it was the equivalent of a person smoking four packs of cigarettes a day).

The development of alternative methods to using animals is a growing and pioneering field. There is now a wide range of more human-relevant and humane approaches and animal tests are being replaced in areas such as toxicity testing, neuroscience and drug development. These alternatives include cell, tissue and organ cultures; methods using chemistry, computers or imaging machines; and ethical and highly effective studies using human volunteers.

Cruelty Free International is dedicated to ending this cruel exploitation of the Mauritius monkeys. We believe that the focus for Mauritius should instead be on these new technologies for non-animal experiments and we are urging Mauritius to become a forward-thinking country that adopts humane and cutting-edge alternatives. Mauritius’ image abroad is already tarnished because of its role in the cruel international trade in monkeys for research. Allowing animal experiments to take place will have a further negative impact and likely result in further widespread protest.

Our campaign has received widespread support from around the world, including in Mauritius, by scientists, wildlife experts, politicians and socio-cultural groups as well as members of the public. Indian politician Maneka Gandhi and internationally renowned primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall have also voiced their concerns.

There are three actions you can take to support our campaign to protect the monkeys of Mauritius and let government officials know that what they are doing is unacceptable:

          United Nations and World Health Organization Call for Drug Decriminalization   
American activists aren't the only ones seeking drug policy reform.

In a joint statement, the United Nations (UN) and World Health Organization (WHO) expressed their support for countries in the review and repeal of laws that criminalize drug use and possession of drugs for personal use. This joint statement, which addresses discrimination in health care settings, comes in light of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which aim to “ensure that no one is left behind”.

The WHO has previously called for drug decriminalization as a necessary measure for public health but this joint statement with the UN represents another significant step in the global movement for drug decriminalization.

There is growing support for drug decriminalization – the elimination of criminal penalties for drug use and possession – in the U.S. and around the world. Leading medical, public health and human rights groups have endorsed drug decriminalization, including the International Red Cross, the American Public Health Association, American Civil Liberties Union, the NAACP and Latino Justice.

Public opinion on decriminalization has also been steadily increasing as the harms of criminalizing drugs become more apparent. Polls of presidential primary voters in MaineNew Hampshire and even South Carolina found that substantial majorities in each state support ending arrests for drug use and possession. In 2016, the first state-level decriminalization bill was introduced in Maryland and a similar version was reintroduced in 2017. 

Internationally, several countries already have some form of drug decriminalization. Portugal, most notably, decriminalized drugs back in 2001 as a response to the country’s HIV crisis and has demonstrated the vast benefits of decriminalization – substantial reductions in overdose, HIV/AIDS and addiction, all without any increase in drug use or crime.

Not only does drug decriminalization drastically reduce the number of people mired in the quicksand of the criminal justice system – it also, as the UN/WHO statement highlights, vastly improve public health. It decreases the stigma against people who use drugs and addresses the discrimination they historically face.

The harms of discrimination are only exacerbated in health settings, where it is literally a matter of life and death. Decriminalization can be the difference between a loved one getting the health services they need and a loved one being stigmatized, denied treatment and in danger of losing their life.

Drug decriminalization is a rational and fiscally sound policy rooted in health and human rights. Governments throughout the U.S. and around the world have an indisputable moral and scientific imperative to pursue it.

          Protests in India Against 'Cow-Protecting' Vigilantes Succeed in Breaking Prime Minister's Silence   
Do some Indian lives matter more than others? The Modi government seems to think so.

On June 29, Indian prime minister Narendra Modi gave a long-awaited (though mild) admonishment of violent “cow protection” vigilantes who have been let loose in the streets of India, on its trains, buses and village and city public spaces, lynching Indians (almost always Muslims or Dalits, members of the lowest caste). Modi, who is normally outspoken, has previously been mum on the spate of killings, conveying an overall climate of immunity to murderous mobs. What appears to have broken this studied silence are the spontaneous protests that finally erupted all over India and coalesced on July 28 when citizens, including celebrities, in 12 cities took over public squares and promenades after a spontaneous call by Delhi-based filmmaker Saba Dewan in a Facebook post.

Though they took some time in coming, the protests appear to have had their desired effect, temporarily at least. Not only has Modi spoken, but the normally distanced Indian commercial television channels have given space to this democratic expression of outrage.

The immediate provocation was the lynching of a Muslim teenager named Junaid Khan on a train, shortly after it departed from Delhi. The men who stabbed Junaid also left his brothers seriously injured. The incident occurred on June 23, the last Friday of the holy month of Ramzan (Ramadan), when the auspicious Alvida Namaaz(prayers) are read and which has a special significance for the devout.

At SabrangIndia, we reported the train incident following an unusually prompt press release from the Communist Party of India, whose politbureau members had visited the site of the incident. We commented in our report that India would soon need its very own “Lynch Calendar.” What we could not report until three days later was that on the same Friday, some 1,088 kilometers away in Chatra Jharkhand, 24-year-old Mohammad Salman was shot and killed in cold blood by men in uniform who simply entered his home, shoved him outside and ordered their subordinates to commit the crime.

In the same eastern Indian state of Jharkhand, there have been a spate of horrific killings, including lynchings, that still haunt public memory—particularly the March 2016 hangings of dairy farmers Mazloom Ansari and 12-year-old Imteyaz Khan in a deserted public village. What has faded away from the current outrage and even the media commentary is the fact that the National Commission for Minorities (a statutory body set up specifically to protect the rights of minorities) had been compelled to send a team to investigate.

The report of the Commission severely indicted the Jharkhand police and the political class for failing to “rein in the cow protection groups who are taking law into their own hands.” The NCM also recorded in its report that “Deep and widespread communalisation of sections of the Jharkhand police force, and slogans like ‘go to Pakistan’ were frequently used by the local police against the Muslims, pointing toward a larger communalisation of the state police.” That report was from May 2016. Today the NCM stands discredited with political appointments by the Modi government who have put into position representatives who have no background in terms of autonomy and rights and are simply toeing a majoritarian government’s line.

Noted activist Shabnam Hashmi returned her 2008 NCM Award on Tuesday, making a strong public statement. She said in her open letter:

“I am returning it [the award] in the memory of the innumerable innocent victims lynched by marauding mobs. Mob Lynching of Muslims and Islamophobia have taken over India. Even before the community can mourn its dead, the next incident takes place. There is an atmosphere of fear and terror. Under the present Government, the marginalization of minority groups has become the norm.

“The design of turning India into a Hindu Rashtra [nation], which began decades ago with calling Muslims dirty, having too many children and being illiterate moved on to excluding them from residential spaces, targeting them as terrorists, has now reached its pinnacle where all public spaces and all means of livelihood are becoming unsafe for the Muslim community.

“Similar to Hitler’s Germany, Muslims are being projected as the biggest enemy of the state and the people of the country. There is legitimization of the communal ideology by the State and the media, [which] has led to acceptance of prejudices and stereotyping without questioning them in popular consciousness, deep infiltration of hate in the minds and hearts of ordinary people and apathy on the part of a large section of the society especially ‘educated’ middle classes.”

The list of assaults is gruesome: The Muslim Maulvi (cleric) who was beaten in April 2017, on a day supposedly important for devout Hindus (Ram Navmi, the birthdate of Lord Ram), in Jharkhand; the beating death of cattle farmer Pehlu Khan from Mewat while he was on agrarian business in Alwar Rajasthan in April 2017; or the lynch mob murder of political activist Zafar Hussain of the Communist Party of India, also in Rajasthan. Each of these murders is happening in the name of faith by the mob proponents of the Hindu nation, who believe the cow to be more precious than human life. The militarized march to a Hindu nation is laden with such dutiful tasks as cleansing the nation of the “dirty,” be it Dalits, Christians, Muslims or Communists.

Countries around the world need to better understand this: If the protests on June 28 drew Indians out of a numb fear that appeared to have gripped even opponents to this ideal, they need to continue and intensify. At the first instance of such an episode in September 2015, a similar dam of protest had broken. Writers led by the eminent Nayantara Sahgal returned their national awards in a powerful protest that embarassed the Modi government and put it on the defensive. Dozens of writers in over a dozen Indian languages, all winners of awards and powerful cultural commentators in their own right, followed by filmmakers, joined in this powerful symbolic protest. But life went on, and the killings continued. It would be tedious to list all the dead, and the circumstances in which they were lynched—most for rumors or frenzied hysteria about transporting cows or bullocks or eating beef, some for marrying a Hindu.

What is crucial to emphasize is the chain of command of culpability in this climate of impunity and lynchings. They began after the Modi government came to power and were aided and abetted by those in power within the government who spewed venom against Indian Muslims and Christians even while holding senior constitutional posts. They were further emboldened when governments run by the same party Modi represents, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), passed unconstitutional “beef laws” to curtail the slaughter, consumption and transportation of beef. They got greater pats on the back when their parent organization, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), spoke of the Holy Cow and its protection. The nail in the coffin was the recently introduced ban on the sale of cattle passed by the Modi government.

Indian newspapers have extensively reported recently, as they also did a year ago, that despite Modi’s apparent regrets about the lynchings, in his previous position as Gujarat chief minister, he was a firm proponent not just of cow protection, but against beef exports. The Indian Express recalls Modi statements of 2013, 2012 and 2014, when he attacked the previous Congress-led government for allowing the export of beef. That politicians indulge in the proverbial doublespeak, before and after a campaign, is only part of the problem. The other is more substantive.

As I have argued:

“For years now, since distributions of trishulsthrough trishul dikshaprogrammes, since violent arms trainings by the RSS and Bajrang Dal, since the terror unleashed by the Mobs on the Street—ever available at the blow of the metamorphical whistle—be it the Mob that lynched Christians (there were over 75 attacks between 1999 and 2002 documented by the All India Christian Union and published by Communalism Combat)or the Mob that attacked Naroda Patiya or Gulberg Society or Odh or Sardarpura villages (Gujarat 2002) or the Mob terror unleashed in Muzaffarnagar, Shamli, Baghpat and Meerut (September 2013)—we have been arguing, with and to the political class and law enforcement agencies: treat Mob terror and Bomb Terror on Par. Do not look at these equally debilitating and vicious kinds of violence that impact innocent lives, differently.”

When there is the terror of the mob attacking a neighborhood, or lynching people, there is a section of the populace, including law enforcement, that participates through its silence, simply looking on. It is this majority participation, through the silence of complicity, that ensures selective outrage and token utterances from the powerful. No wonder then that the Modis, and the Venkaiah Naidus and even law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad only speak selectively and occasionally. Do some Indian lives matter more than others?

Unfortunately it seems that they do. The killers of Mohammad Ayub in Gujarat, lynched on the eve of Modi’s visit to his home state, were given bail by the higher courts; the killers of Mazloom Ansari and Imiteyaz in Latehar also got out on bail six months ago. On the other hand, those accused, even falsely, of acts of bomb terror do not get bail, often until the final acquittal. They remain incarcerated. This imbalance, even prejudice or bias—privileging mob terror over bomb terror—must stop. The Indian establishment must look at them as two sides of the same coin, or else we are perpetrating an injustice of our own.

That the numbness has finally broken is a good beginning, even if it comes somewhat late. It needs to go further, however, to assert, again and again, in public discourse, that mob terror is as vicious as bomb terror, and to ensure that every police station, every district collector, every railway policeman functions as the Indian Constitution requires him to, with equality before the law and non-discrimination as his credo.

To end with hope, it’s worth reproducing this Facebook post from a mother, which went viral on Thursday. With the picture of an Indian woman holding the holy book of India, its Constitution, she writes:

NOT IN MY NAME

Junaid was lynched by a mob of cruel human beings. I don’t care what religion those lynchers belonged to. Nor do I care what religion Junaid belonged to. I only care about one thing. A group of mean, cruel human beings killed a teenager and assaulted three other young men brutally!
Junaid was 16.
My elder son will turn 16 next year.
My heart breaks for Junaid’s mother.
Not only did a group of cruel human beings kill Junaid, another group of cruel human beings egged them on. Junaid was also killed by those cruel people who witnessed the insanity & chose to remain silent.
There are some cruel people who justify this lynching.
Yes! Hate allows for all sorts of justification.
There has been a long list of these lynchings. It has become so common that no one talks about it. Nobody asks questions about what happened to the perpetrators. Whether they were caught & given the strictest punishment or whether they were released to unleash more violence!
I cannot fathom how anyone can kill unarmed, innocent human beings!
I cannot fathom how people can justify this horrific violence!
Instead of taking law into their own hands why are police complaints not made?
Is it because the lynch mob knows that there is no reason behind what they have done?
All they want to do is to kill in the name of hate.
Whichever religion, ideology, language, ethnicity you belong to, lynching done in any name cannot be condoned!
We’ve suffered so many riots, terrorist attacks, pogroms, lynchings but we haven’t learnt anything.
The bottom line is that innocent human beings become the target of that hate. They are usually poor. They are usually those who are incapable of fighting back. It is really too, too disheartening.
Innocence dies when hate rules!
I cannot be a part of those who encourage hate.
I was with the Ekta Manch marching from Parel to Azad Maidan singing “Hum hongey kaamyaab….” to promote brotherhood between fellow citizens of all faiths in 1993 after the horrendous riots followed by the heinous bomb blasts in Mumbai.
I marched to the Gateway of India to protest the utter failure & crass mishandling of 26/11 by the then Congress Govt in the State and the Centre in 2008.
I supported the Anna Hazare anti corruption movement when he waged the civil battle against the UPA 2 Govt at the Centre.
I was vocal about women’s safety after the horrendous rape & murder of Jyoti Singh as well as Pallavi Purkayastha as well as the sickening hacking of Swathi.
Today I stand firmly against the lynch mentality that has an active political patronage in our country.
I do not belong to any political party. I am a citizen of one of the finest democracies in the World. That is why it is so important for all of us to respect & protect the tenets of our Constitution.
I, as a proud citizen of India, do not conform to the views of anyone who actively or passively supports this lynching.
My allegiance lies with the Constitution of India.
If the Govt or any other body does anything to undermine the basic tenets of democracy in our country, I will vocally oppose it.
I so wanted to be a part of the peaceful civil protest at Carter Road today but I can’t. But I will not be a part of this hate!
I do not want my children to inherit this hate.
I will not have the blood of innocents on my hands.

NOT IN MY NAME!

          Comment on So You Want a Cultural Revolution? by Siarlys Jenkins   
<i>i remember a Trotskyite from a rival organization telling me that the “Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution” was neither great nor cultural.</i> It wasn't proletarian either... coming from a confirmed socialist who was never Maoist or Trotskyite, and has concluded the Leninist organization is a failure on its own terms, never mind what the right wing says about it. <i>Think of the possibilities: Ivy League presidents working on pig farms, coal miners as CNN anchors and New York Times editors. Nothing else would so fully fulfill their anti-elitist fantasies, although they don’t seem to resent the financial elites the same way.</i> I'd go for college presidents working on pig farms, but I want to to see Wall Street executives working in the coal mines. More realistically, I want to see all able bodied unemployed people enrolled in union apprenticeship programs building high speed rail lines across the U.S., while unemployed social workers are hired to lay track. <i>But in that horde I saw the terrifying power of the left wing “progressive” mob, its utter self righteousness, it surety that it was just one inch away from utopia, and was ready to get there by hell or high water. No doubt, they’d have been thrilled to have ousted the new, duly elected president that very moment by force of will. I do not trust these people with power.</i> What you saw was not "power" but delusional self-congratulation. This pampered mob wouldn't know what to do with power if they had it, which they don't. It would fall from their grasp as readily as it fell from the grasp of Alexander Kerensky and Bela Kun. When a party actually takes power, it becomes their job to make sure all the wheels of production are turning so everyone gets their paychecks on time, food is available in all the grocery stores, etc.

On the last day of our vacation my husband died.

Frank and I met when I was twenty and we have been together for the last 41 years and married for the last 3 ½ years.  We are both retired and both of us in our early 60’s.  In early May I thought it would be nice to go on a road trip, to break up our routine.   I could tell Frank was ready to go somewhere, but we could not because our cat was going on 20 years old and having a rough time.  We knew his end was near and just didn’t want to leave him.  The night of April 6th we came to the decision to have him put to sleep the next day as he could hardly stand.  That night he died in Frank’s arms. I usually put together our vacations so I put together a two week road trip to Florida leaving May 6th.  We stopped to visit friends in Myrtle Beach and then continued on to Fort Myers Beach for several days.  After that we crossed the state over to Hollywood Beach where we rented a small house that had a nice private pool.  It was very close to the Hollywood Board walk which we discovered on our last trip to the area.  We had a wonderful time and I think it was our best trip yet.  In heading home, we planned stop in Savannah.   We got in early, took a little nap, showered and then called an Uber to take us downtown Savannah.  We had a nice dinner at a restaurant we discovered on our last visit there too.  After walking around a little we called an Uber to head back to our room.  We got back at midnight and put our comfy clothes on.  I got on the lap top and Frank started watching a movie and played on his phone, as he always did.  We turned in about 1:30.  Sometime during the night, I woke up to hear Frank snoring in a very wield manner.  I have to say I had never heard anything quite like it before.  I thought he was snoring and having a dream.  I didn’t think any more about it and just rolled over and went back to sleep.  I woke up early, around 6:20, so that we can get a jump on the free breakfast before everybody else.  I turned over to wake Frank and he wasn’t responding.  I got out of bed and he wasn’t waking up.  He died during the night.  I called the manager and they called EMS, but it was to late.  Unbeknownst to me during the night, is that I woke up in the middle of his being in cardiac arrest.  The weird breathing was his body trying to get oxygen causing what is known as agonal respiration.  He was laboring to breath and gasping for air.  God woke me to attempt to save Frank and I did nothing but roll over and go back to sleep.  Even though a person surviving cardiac arrest in extremely low, it eats at me that I didn’t recognize a problem and try CPR.  I feel I failed Frank.  I feel so guilty!  I always looked out for his well-being and I let him down.  I learned later that morning, after looking a Frank’s phone, that while I was on the lap top, he was doing a Google search on “throat pain and heart attack symptoms”.   He didn’t say a word about it.   He failed me.  I was in a strange area, alone and Frank was dead.   EMS and police were in our room.  After the authorities were done I was permitted to go back into the room.  I sat with Frank on the floor for a while, holding his lifeless hand, waiting for the coroner to come.  It was Sunday May 21st, so it was longer than usual.  Frank was turning blue and his body already starting to deteriorate.  I watched as they placed him in a body bag and it was the worse day of my life.   After they left, I was all alone.  I made a few phone calls.  One to our local funeral home and another to a family member.  It was so awful packing my suitcase then his.  It was awful packing the car then getting into an empty car and driving home for 12 hours straight.  I couldn’t stop, I had to just keep going.  I made it home at midnight.   It was the worst moment of my life again walking into an empty house.  I couldn’t believe that I would never see Frank again.   That whole week was spent making arrangements ending with calling hours and a brief service.   I physically could not eat for a whole week.  I lost 12 pounds.  Since then my life has been numb.  I’ve cried every day for the last 41 days.  I put our satellite service on hold.  I stopped the newspaper.  Nothing seems to be important anymore.   Our home, which was our labor of love now is unimportant and is just plain labor.   My plan at this time is to eventually sell it.  It was ours and I can’t be here without him.  I feel I won’t be able to rebuild my life if I stay here.   I have half good days and half bad days.  Mornings seem the worst.  If I start out depressed I seem to stay that why.  I hate being here alone.  Even if I am with someone else.  It may temporally take my mind off things.  But, I am still alone in my head.  The loss and loneness is so great.  Some days it’s unbearable.  I have been reading bereavement books, journaling, visiting websites and spending hours on the phone with family and friends.  I think it’s helping.  But, on some days I keep falling back into the grief pit.  The pain feels like it’s never going to end.  Frank was my life.See More

          My Lord, the Most Merciful   
A few months ago, I updated this status to my Facebook account:
"Getting pretty sick of the rah-rah parade doing the rounds in the blogosphere:
"(to mothers/women in general): You ARE good enough. You ARE amazing."
Really, I'm not. Seriously. Enough already! I'm all for optimism, but...oh, wait. I'm not. I'm for realism.
Conclusion: I need chocolate. Lots of it. Therein lies the solution!"
I still stand by my words. I'm not saying we should wallow in the deep end of the pool of self pity; but this exaggeration of one's goodness also nauseates me.
I often feel this way. As I'm sure a lot of Mums do. That I'm not good enough; I'm not doing enough as a mother. If I'm finding it SO hard, surely I must be doing something wrong! I must try harder. I'm not trying hard enough. I'm not praying hard enough. I'm not attentive enough. I'm not loving enough. I'm not positive enough.
I am just not 'enough'. The feeling of being inadequate as a person - but intensified a hundredfold into the failings of a mother. Being inadequate as a person is somehow less awful than being inadequate as a mother. If you fail as a person, you have failed yourself. But if you fail as a mother, you have failed an entire generation.
These feelings come to a head when I get sick, like the past couple of days. I've been feeling down and low and completely unworthy of the beautiful present from my Lord that is my baby; and then last night was the worst. My whole body ached and my eyes watered and I was sure I would come down with a fever that would be the death of me. And the voices in my head said, "You're a horrible mother, thinking about dying and such when you should be thinking of Baby Girl. And what business do you have getting sick, anyway? How will you ever take care of Baby Girl in this condition?'
Feeling thus, I asked hubby if it would be ok for me to take a nap in the spare bedroom for a while before coming to bed for the night. My brilliant idea being proposed at midnight, he asked what did I need a nap for? I said that I really, really needed some rest (which I was not going to get with a 16 month old in bed with us, doing her best to take over the entire bed while her parents hung on to the edges for dear life.) He tore his eyes away from his PS3, took one look at me, and said, 'You know what, why don't you sleep on your own tonight. Get a good night's rest, and I'll take care of Baby Girl. Just keep the baby monitor with you, in case I do need to call you."
And suddenly there was a voice in my head, whispering "Then which of the favours of your Lord will you deny?"

I don't remember the last time I had had such a good sleep as last night. To be sure, I still heard my baby's cries when she awoke in the middle of the night; I heard her cry out for me and I heard hubby comfort her back to sleep. But despite the disturbances, I had a good night's rest, alhumdulillah.
At Fajr time my bayboo woke up and cried for me again; this time she was inconsolable. I began getting up even before hubby's urgent whisper came through the baby monitor, asking me to come quickly.
As soon as I held my precious daughter in my arms, it was as if the negativity of the past few days had never existed. As she showered me with the sweetest hugs and kisses, I realized just how keenly she had missed me; and again there was the voice in my head, whispering, "Then which of the favours of your Lord will you deny?"
Such love as my baby expressed to me during the following day! All I could do was smile and think, so much love...for me? But I am so unworthy...so undeserving of it.
And then, finally, at long last, I understood: I may never be good enough. I may never attain perfection, but if I keep trying, my Lord will keep helping. When I take one step towards Him, He takes ten towards me. He, the Lord of the Universe, the Creator of all that is in the Heavens and the Earth, He who is Self-Sufficient and in need of no-one; He, my Merciful, Glorious Lord, will continue to help me as long as I keep trying.
With these thoughts in my head, I take a deep breath, cast away the doubts and continue on my journey of motherhood.

          French Bank BNP Paribas Accused Of Complicity In Rwandan Genocide   
Three civil society groups in France have filed a lawsuit against French banking giant BNP Paribas, accusing it of complicity in the 1994 Rwandan genocide that killed more than 800,000 people. The groups Sherpa, the Collectif des Parties Civiles pour le Rwanda and Ibuka France said Thursday that the bank transferred $1.3 million that was used to purchase weapons, in violation of a U.N. arms embargo. They say it's the first lawsuit of its kind against a bank in France. The Rwandan genocide started after the plane of Rwandan President Juvenal Habyarimana, an ethnic Hutu, was shot down. Hutu militias then massacred members of the minority Tutsi ethnic group over the course of 100 days. BNP Paribas has not addressed the allegations. "We became aware of the complaint through media," it said in an emailed statement to NPR. "At the moment, we do not have enough information regarding the complaint to be able to comment on it." The groups allege that one month after the U.N. implemented an arms

          Artic Temps = Slow Cooking   


It is crazy cold in Philly.  The Schuylkill River has a layer of ice.  A LAYER OF ICE!  Ca-razy.  I look semi-homeless with all my layers.  I usually look semi-homeless.  I am so freaking cold. We have a really old house that does not retain heat well.  It was built when Lincoln was in office and the windows are horrible.  I actually went around a few weeks back with packing tape and taped the "leaks".  We are always wearing hats and scarves and Arcteryx jackets.  It is awful.  On the weekends I tend to cook all day.  The house fills with delicious smells and the kitchen is warm. We start the day and hang about the table as I chop and saute and stir and bake.  In the past two months I have made some real winners.  Duck Confit, Beef Bourguignon, Calabrese Ricotta Dumpling Soup and French Onion Soup.  REAL, 6 hour long, onion soup with crouton and comte.

Let's begin with the onion soup.  I roasted the bones and veggies and made stock.  Very good.  Then the onions.  On low low heat, stirring...stirring...stirring...6 hours later.  Pretty, no?  It was laborious.  We sat down that evening to eat.  I even have those adorable soup bowls with the lion's head.  I have made onion soup before, but not with my own beef stock.  Everyone dug in.  John declared that it was "too rich" and maybe "too herbaceous".  So fucking annoyed.  With me, not him. I think I added too much thyme to my stock.  I don't know about you, but I get super irritated when I spend this much time and effort and a tiny little detail blows the whole thing to hell.  I know, I know...  I cannot help it.  It won't stop me.  I will keep going.

Okay, now duck confit.   It takes three or more days.  I will be honest, I LOVE LOVE LOVE duck confit, but I will have to wait to repeat this effort again.  Having your house smell like duck fat for days and days is awful.  I woke up on the third day and almost cried.  The aroma hung in the air like cat hair on black wool pants, refusing to leave.  I felt like my pores were filled with duck fat and I was breathing duck fat air.  I actually thought about Village Whiskey.  They serve duck fat fries and I was sad for their chefs.  Poor souls smelling that day in and out.  Going home to their significant others smelling like that every day.  Maybe their dogs are appreciative.  Oy.  Anywho, duck confit is a day of herb-saltage (new word that means curing), a day (or overnight) of rendering fat and cooking in fat for what feels like forever.  Then at least a day submerged in fat (preferably a week or more) to age.  Then you sear the skin to crisp and warm it in the oven.  The whole house smells like duck fat again. It is too much.  I love duck confit.  Ample time must pass between confitting (pronounced "kon - feeting").  Our aging in duck fat does seem to bother my kids.  They loved it.  I packed the leftovers in their school lunch the following day.  One friend pronounced it "nasty" and not in the good way.  To each his own.

Last up was a delicate soup of chicken broth and ricotta dumplings.  Lovely and oh so temperamental.  I saved the chicken from the stock and made chicken salad for the kids lunches.  The dumplings were a challenge.  I had to add those little balls to the perfectly simmering broth.  Too lively....disintegration!  A Goldilocks dish.  It was delicious, but John announced that it was not enough to make an entire meal.  A starter.  Too bad people cause that was all I had.

So, next up on Saturday is my oxtail ragu.  Maybe I will make my own pasta.  Have not decided yet.  Spring is just around the corner.  I must get in all these all day dishes.  When the weather warms, who wants to be inside?
          It Is That Time of Year   
I rarely post anything until after the holidays.  It is such an insane time.  Right now I have a break from packing internet packages and needed to sit down for a spell.  I love that phrase, "for a spell...."  I plan on keeping you updated with pics from New Orleans during the next week.  Although the pictures of my oyster loaf from Casamentos or my gumbo from R&O are enviable, y'all must think we eat the entire time.  We don't.  We also drink.

Every year we rush to put up a tree prior to leaving. This year was no different.  Our tree is not one to grace the cover of some magazine.  It is filled with mementos and gifts - the ugliest being Manny's 1st grade ornament that is simply a piece of wood glued with dried beans, macaroni and straws.  It is super ugly and up there.  Sev gets the "First One To Break An Ornament" every year.  I wish he wouldn't.

When John and I were fresh parents, we took Michaela, who had just started running (15 months) to Neiman Marcus.  We did not own a single ornament.  On the advice of some friends, we were told that NM was the place to go.  We needed to begin to create traditions for our new family.  Our small family packed up the car and drove to the Main Line.  We arrived at NM and went straight to the home section.  Michaela was a handful and therefore our time was limited.  The store was warm and crowded and the smell of cinnamon was heavy in the air.  Loud festive music was pulsing.  The ornaments were gorgeous.  Michaela babbled to no one in particular while bolted into her stroller.  We decided quickly and managed to lasso a sales associate.  We selected about 20 ornaments and a beautiful star for the top of the tree.  All seemed to be going as planned when Michaela started to convulse. Her chest thrusting forward as Kane's did on the Nostromo.  She started to twist her face and body, pulling her knees high, pulling at the constraints and finally bellowing, "OUT!  OUT!!! OUT!!"  Our trusty oblivious sales clerk was lovingly wrapping our precious glass ornaments and placing them in a beautiful cream box with care.  All 20 of them.  Instead of her chest bursting open to release the demon, her face turned red and she full out screamed "MA! OUT!  MA MA MA MA! OUT!"  Running the stroller in circles weaving through sloth-like people was not cutting it.At this point John and I started to discuss strategy.




John, "This is torture.  Should we bail? We are officially 'those' people."
Me, "We cannot.  He has already wrapped about 5."
John, "At the rate he is moving, we are going to be here for.ev.er!!!"
Me, "I am going to take her out and walk around.  Be back in 10."
John, "It is too hot.  Why is it so hot?  Why does it smell like a gingerbread man farted in here?"
Me, "Awesome, I have two toddlers..."
John, "(CENSORED)"

Unwisely, I released the beast from her chains.  Before her little feet could hit that perfectly polished marble floor she sprinted.  From the ceiling hung the assorted ornaments by gorgeous ribbon.  The ornaments were placed at various levels, the lowest falling at knee height creating a split in the room that was wall, really.  The beast had them in her sight.  Her arms stretched above her head and giggling madly ran through numerous people and yes, through the ornament wall, as one would run through strung disco beads.  Her little fingers hitting the delicate painted glass.  I was right behind her.  I gasped.  I frantically tried to stop the swinging ornaments. John ran around to the other side of the wall of ornaments as the beast stopped and turned.  Her face was rapturous, mouth agape in joy and arms stills spread, she slowly and unsteadily turned and readied her self to run back through.  Just as she took her first step, John swept her up into his arms football style, and marched out of the home section calling back, "You wait.  Meet you out front."  The beast roared, "NO NO NO NO NO!!  MAAAAAAA!"

Sev has broken about 25% of those original ornaments over the years.  He is impulsive and well, let's just say it, clumsy.  It drives us mad. We have never made it back to Neiman.  I have started to purchase ornaments while traveling to commemorate our lives.  Hand painted ornaments from Sicily, stuffed dragons from San Fran's Chinatown and glass crowns and martini olives from New Orleans.  About 10 years ago a friend who no longer has a Christmas tree as she travels, gifted a gorgeous ornament that she purchased in the 50s.  It is the gorgeous specimen above with the red rounded flower.  Since then, I search for old ornaments at thrift stores and flea markets.  They are hard to come by.  Gnome Chomsky (get it?) here was a gift from the beautiful talented Kamala.  I miss her.  She made that!  As beautiful as those NM ornaments are, my favorite are the gifts, the kids' monstrous creations and the travel ornaments.

We leave in a few days time for the Big Easy.  I am looking forward to seeing my family and eating large.  My beautiful nephews are growing at a pace that frightens me.  It will be a very short trip this year.  So much going on in the new year.  Cannot wait to share the news.



          R Months = Oysters   
The weather has definitely taken a dip.  I woke up the other morning and assuming it was another warm summer day took the dogs for a walk in flip flops.  The air was cool on my arms and toes.  I look forward to the season's changes, but being in the "ice cream" business, I always worry.  The cooling temperatures are challenging, but I love wearing sweaters and we can drink hot chocolate and eat soup.  Fall means apples, pears, quince, pumpkins and black walnuts for gelato and sorbetto. It is a good thing.

John's birthday was yesterday and it was not the usual affair.  He requested (at my insistence, as the "honey, I don't care what you make, as long as we are all together..." line was not cutting it.  Choose motherfucker, so I can get to work) gnocchi and a red velvet cake.  I could not find red food coloring.  Living in Philadelphia limits my shopping options.  I have Whole Foods and corner stores in my neighborhood.  Neither carries red food coloring. I had to drive to the burbs for it.  Additionally, it was "back to school" night, Manny had soccer practice and Michaela had a soccer game.  Not a whole lot of time to bake a cake and make gnocchi.  By 5:45 it became apparent that I could not get it done.  I called John.  "Oysters."  That is all he said.  "Oysters."

Sansom Street Oyster House.  We ordered Kusshi, Fanny Bay and Little Shemogue oysters.  3 dozen.  We each had 2 Bulleit old fashions, and a bowl of clam chowder.  I love this restaurant.  The oysters are excellent, the drinks are excellent, our waitress was excellent and it is really a beautiful space.  Big and square, yet it manages to feel warm and quirky.  The walls are painted brick and covered with antique oyster plates.  We bumped into old friends, who live around the corner from the restaurant.  They are there often. He stated that he imagines that the plates came from some old woman's collection.  I added that she had a drawer filled with small silver oyster forks, that she polished once a week.  I think I may have to add oyster plates to my obsessive mind.  Ebay, here I come....


John and I stepped from the warm oyster house into the cool early fall night air.  We were going to walk home, but realized how exhausted we were.  The old fashions were clouding our heads and our feet seemed so heavy.  It was a nice birthday dinner.  Sev returns at the week's end from his camping trip.  I will make gnocchi and red velvet cake.  Fall is good.  
          Snow? Maybe, possibly, but who cares! Soup time!   

They are talking about snow this weekend. I shudder. Yuck. There are some great things about snow. Bundling up, sledding, snowball fights, hot chocolate and soup. One of John's favorite things in the world is a hot bowl(s) of soup. He sits and eats bowl after bowl, rarely looking up, in silence. I pack up the remaining soup in the pot into quart containers to be frozen. As I am washing the pots, John always wraps his arms around my waist and says, "Great soup, baby." and kisses my neck. This is what makes me a soup ninja. I like pleasing my man and this has pushed me to make the best soups ever. I do not give up until John says it is perfect.

Soups should not be overly complicated and should be hearty. Humble ingredients are best. Beans, kale, onions, chicken.... Enter what John and I refer to as "Grandma Chicken Soup". Both of our grandmother's made chicken soup. Same soup with one difference. His nonna had pasta and my grandmother's had matzo balls. It is so simple. Chicken, carrots, onions, celery, bay leaves, salt and pepper, pastina and wait for the kiss.


          Winter = Bourbon   

John and I love bourbon. We had a delicious dinner in New Orleans at Sylvain over the holidays. Sylvain's cocktails were intriguing. I was torn between Dennis' Sidecar and the Superfly Snuka. I had both, but that is another matter. Our lovely waitress, when asked for her preference, returned with another question, "Are you a bourbon girl?" Why yes! Yes, I am. She stated that I could not go wrong with the Sidecar. I did not. It was delicious. The Snuka was delicious as well, just so ya' know.

John and I use the cold weather as an excuse to drink bourbon. Bourbon just warms your toes, does it not?

This is our favorite cocktail. You may question our mixing really good bourbon with other stuff, but I have found that it is just more delicious with expensive bourbon. It is my opinion and I am sticking with it.

          Emerging Markets: What has Changed   
(from my colleague Dr. Win Thin)

  • Chinese President Xi visited Hong Kong for the first time.
  • The US has proposed $1.3 bln of arms sales to Taiwan.
  • The Egyptian government raised fuel and cooking gas prices. significantly as part of the IMF program.
  • South Africa’s parliament has scheduled the no confidence vote on President Zuma.
  • Brazil’s central bank lowered its inflation target.
  • Brazil after President Temer was charged with corruption.

In the EM equity space as measured by MSCI, Brazil (+2.9%), Russia (+1.5%), and Turkey (+0.9%) have outperformed this week, while Czech Republic (-3.0%), Hungary (-1.2%), and Chile (-0.9%) have underperformed.  To put this in better context, MSCI EM fell -0.1% this week while MSCI DM fell -0.3%.

In the EM local currency bond space, Brazil (10-year yield -13 bp), Colombia (-6 bp), and China (-5 bp) have outperformed this week, while South Africa (10-year yield +27 bp), Philippines (+17 bp), and Hungary (+17 bp) have underperformed.  To put this in better context, the 10-year UST yield rose 14 bp to 2.28%. 

In the EM FX space, ILS (+1.3% vs. USD), BRL (+1.0% vs. USD), and SGD (up 0.8% vs. USD) have outperformed this week, while ARS (-2.5% vs. USD), ZAR (-1.4% vs. USD), and COP (-1.0% vs. USD) have underperformed. 

Chinese President Xi visited Hong Kong for the first time.  The visit commemorates the 20th anniversary of the Hong Kong handover. Xi stressed that the “one country, two systems” framework remains successful.  USD/HKD traded at its highest level since January 2016.

The US has proposed $1.3 bln of arms sales to Taiwan.  The package would reportedly contain early warning radar, anti-radar missiles, and naval torpedoes.  It was approved by the Defense Department and will move forward unless Congress blocks it within 30 days.  Of course, Chinese officials objected.

The Egyptian government raised fuel and cooking gas prices significantly as part of the IMF program.  Prime Minister Ismail said inflation (29.7% y/y in May) was likely to accelerate 4-5 percentage points as a result of the price hikes.  After a 300 bp hike in conjunction with the EGP float, the central bank remained on hold until it hiked 200 bp more to 16.75% in May.  

South Africa’s parliament has scheduled the no confidence vote on President Zuma.  After several delays, the vote will be held on August 3.  Parliament added that it has not yet decided on whether the vote will be done via secret ballot.

Brazil’s central bank lowered its inflation target.  The central bank will now target inflation at 4.25% in 2019 and 4.0% percent in 2020, down from the 4.5% target that has been in place since 2005.  The tolerance band was kept at +/- 1.5 percentage points, which came into effect this year.  
 
Politics is taking center stage again in Brazil after President Temer was charged with corruption.  This is connected to the recent secret recordings of an alleged conversation between Temer and Joesley Batista.  The charges now need to be approved by two thirds of the lower house in order to proceed.  Even if he survives the vote, the reform agenda will be delayed, if not derailed.

          Strike Force Is Created To Combat Chicago Gun Violence    
Copyright 2017 NPR. To see more, visit SCOTT SIMON, HOST: More than 1,700 people have been shot in Chicago or harmed in acts of violence there this year. More than 300 people have died. The city's homicide crisis continues. And President Trump tweeted that, quote, "killings in Chicago have reached such epidemic proportions that I am sending in federal help." The attorney general announced a Chicago gun strike force of more than 20 Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents will be sent to the city, where they'll prosecute gun crimes and work with local police and prosecutors. We're joined now by Carol Marin, political editor at NBC5 in Chicago. She's also on WTTW. Carol, thanks so much for being with us. CAROL MARIN: My pleasure, Scott. SIMON: Are Chicago officials eager to see this strike force? MARIN: They're willing to see the strike force. Nobody objects to having more manpower. But I hasten to say 20 ATF agents does not an army make. And therein is part of the problem. SIMON

          It might be time for Tesla to get out of the car business (TSLA)   

elon musk

Here's a completely heretical idea, especially on the eve of Tesla launching its long-awaited $35,000 Model 3 in July and the stock rallying almost 80% over the first half of 2017:

Tesla should think about getting out of the car business.

Crazy, right? This is the first new American automaker in decades — and investors are so bullish on it that even though it has made money in exactly two quarters since its 2010 IPO and sold less than 80,000 vehicles in 2016, its market cap is bigger than General Motors', Ford's, or Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.

Additionally, Tesla is really nothing but a carmaker at this point. Although it sells solar panels and energy storage systems and is building a massive battery factory in Nevada, its revenues largely come from an old-fashioned place: assembling and marketing cars.

But here's the thing: for a carmaker such as BMW or Porsche or even Ferrari, limited production, a longstanding perception about the brand, and generally high to very high to astronomically high transactions (I'm looking at you, Ferrari LaFerrari supercar and your $1-million-plus price tag), the car business can be pretty good. Not Apple good, but healthy double-digit margins are in order.

Tesla started out at this end of the market, selling expensive luxury vehicles to a well-heeled elite. If it stayed with this business, it could conceivably end up with a 20% profit margin. 

Tesla Model S

A victim of Musk's vision

But CEO Elon Musk wants to get gas-powered cars off the road, so that means Tesla has to attack the low-margin mass-market business. The Model 3 is the first shot. And there are 400,000 pre-orders, so it's a big first shot.

The mass market isn't really about what Tesla is good at, which is visionary spectacle and succeeding against overwhelming odds. The mass market is about grinding, unspectacular execution, day after day. This might be why Musk wants to see it taken over by robots. 

For the time being, Tesla has committed to playing in this space, and doing it with a product — an all-electric vehicle — that consumers have thus far shown little interest in. EVs now make up only about 1% of global sales. Tesla needs to move that needle and move it big time, and to be honest, the company isn't strong enough to do it on its own. Others will have to come into the game.

This is where matters get challenging. Autos are a tough business: capital intensive, with cyclical sales and a requirement that car companies spend a lot on R&D to avoid falling behind. The end product is extremely complicated and relatively costly — so much so that carmakers maintain financing arms to loan customers the money to buy products.

A business for the nutty

Many, many auto executives would say that the reason nobody has started a successful new car company in half a century is that you had to be nuts to start a new car company. There are so many other ways to get rich.

It's not clear that Musk fully understood this when he originally invested in Tesla and later took over the CEO job. But he's learning now. 

Fortunately, he doesn't have to think of himself as the quixotic leader of a company that by its economic nature will destroy his fortune, perhaps more than once. Tesla could at some point shed its car business or outsource it and focus on more lucrative, higher-growth, less-capital-hungry enterprises. Solar could be huge in the future, and in any case it's been a rapid growth area for energy.

Batteries for residential, industrial, and utility applications could also be big future businesses. And I haven't even gotten to the software and self-driving innovations that make up Tesla Autopilot. They could be worth more on their own than Tesla's entire carmaking operations someday, especially if you assume that the data generated by self-driving vehicles is where the real opportunity (and riches) resides. 

Tesla gigafactory

Hard to change course?

But, you might ask, wouldn't it be hard to unload the car business?

Not really. For example, if Tesla builds a factory in China, it will almost certainly have to establish a JV with a Chinese company, meaning that effectively half the Chinese manufacturing business would be owned by someone else. A contract manufacturer such as industry leader Magna could assemble Tesla vehicles in North America or Europe. And given that Tesla is aiming to sell 500,000 vehicles annually by the end of next year, a competitor might decide it's worth it to buy up the car brand.

The bottom line is that we know where Tesla's car business is going, and it's nothing all that financially thrilling. It could be financially depressing. Almost all the company's other projects, even idealistic moon shots like the Boring Company (digging traffic-beating tunnels under Los Angeles) have the potential to growth more rapidly or establish entirely new markets. 

Perhaps that's where Musk's focus should be.

          Verizon wants to borrow T-Mobile and Vodafone's consumer data to take on Facebook and Google (VZ)   
  • Tim ArmstrongVerizon wants to license data from its competitors to bulk up its online ad business Oath
  • This initiative could bring together competitors like T-Mobile and Sprint
  • Ultimate plan is to take on Google and Facebook

Verizon Communications wants to challenge Google and Facebook. So it's reaching out to some of its biggest rivals in the wireless industry for help.

Now that the telecom giant has completed its acquisition of Yahoo and rolled out Oath, a division which includes a wide collection of digital advertising assets, it is looking to ramp up its ability to challenge Google and Facebook in the sector. The wireless giant is exploring building a data partnership with other top wireless players, including T-Mobile, Sprint, Vodafone and Telefónica, people with knowledge of the matter told Business Insider.

Specifically, Verizon wants to pool together more wireless consumer data that can be used for ad targeting. A big reason Google and Facebook are so dominant in digital advertising – besides the fact that their platforms reach huge audiences  –is that they have powerful, accurate data sets on millions of consumers that can be used by advertisers to target people with more relevant ads.

When Verizon purchased AOL two years ago, Oath CEO Tim Armstrong spoke openly about the power of Verizon's data and how it, coupled with AOL's advertising technology and large audience, could be used to put some real pressure on Google and Facebook on the ad targeting front. For example, Verizon knows where its customers live, where they travel, and what apps they use, all of which could be used to show people more relevant ads as they surf the web. 

But while Verizon's US subscriber base is close to 150 million people, that's still rather paltry compared to Facebook and Google's massive audiences. So if it can license data from T-Mobile, for instance, it could layer on ad targeting signals from roughly 72 million more consumers.

In addition, licensing data from companies like Vodaphone and Telefónica would help Verizon expand its ad footprint outside the US, an area where advertisers have been pushing for progress, given Google and Facebook's global clout.

There's a lot to be worked out behind the scenes for such a data partnership to fully come to fruition. To date, just weaving together the various pieces of AOL and Verizon has proven particularly complicated. And the level of data that various wireless companies would be willing to license may vary widely. But Armstrong did discuss this plan in his pitch to top advertisers at the Cannes ad festival last week, said people familiar with the matter.

Verizon was potentially hampered by regulatory uncertainty during the waning months of the Obama administration. But since March when Republican senators voted to kill regulations in this realm, companies like Verizon are freer to exploit consumer data for advertising. (Of course, it's perhaps a different story in Europe, where regulators just hit Google with a monster fine).

If Verizon and competitors like T-Mobile and Telefonica did share consumer data, it's a good bet that there would be steps taken to make sure that no personal consumer identification data would be shared between the two companies. Undoubtedly, consumer privacy advocates would scrutinize this project closely.

If this plan proceeds, it will be interesting to see what other Verizon rivals may participate. It seems doubtful that AT&T would jump in, considering that Verizon is blocking AT&T users from logging onto Yahoo with AT&T email addresses, according to TechCrunch. And Sprint's potential wireless pact with Comcast and Charter, first reported by the Wall Street Journal, would only seem to complicate matters.

Officials from T-Mobile and Telefonica declined to comment. Vodafone and Sprint did not return request for comment on this story.

          North Korea calls for dissolution of UN Command in Seoul   

Pyongyang, July 2 (IANS) North Korea on Saturday called for the dissolution of the United Nations Command in Seoul.

The call, made by the National Peace Committee of Korea -- the country's official institution dealing with inter-Korean issues -- said that the US brought the UN Command to Seoul in July 1957 in support of South Korea, shortly after the Korean War broke out in June 1950, Xinhua reported.

It said Washington's aim was to "internationalise the Korean peninsula issue and establish the Asia-version of NATO."

"The US and the pro-American elements of South Korea are working hard to preserve the UN Command, a leftover of the Cold War and lever for aggression," it added.

The statement accused the US of wanting to "ignite a second Korean war and stifle North Korea by force of arms under the signboard of the UN."

          Two arrested in Delhi jewellery shop robbery case   

New Delhi, July 1 (IANS) Two robbers have been arrested in connection with a broad daylight robbery in a jewellery shop in the national capital, police said on Saturday.

Police said the accused persons -- Rakesh Rastogi, 57, and Raja Ram Deshmukh, 55, natives of Muradabad in Uttar Pradesh -- were wanted for a sensational robbery, committed on June 15 in a jewellery shop in south Delhi's Malviya Nagar area.

"Rastogi and Deshmukh were arrested on Saturday afternoon from Botanical Garden Metro Station in Noida's Sector 37 following a tip-off. Police also recovered robbed gold jewellery valued at several lakhs of rupees from their possession," Deputy Commissioner of Police Ishwar Singh told IANS.

"Police had on June 27 arrested their other associates, identified as Azeem, 26, Dilshad Mohammad, 26, and Saurabh Verma, 24, from different areas of Uttar Pradesh. With covered faces and carrying firearms and meat choppers, they entered victim Pramod Jain's jewellery shop in Malviya Nagar," Singh said.

They threatened Jain and escaped with all the jewellery, valued at Rs 65 lakh, from his shop, the police officer added.

"Both Rastogi and Deshmukh are being produced in the court and will be taken on police remand to unearth the entire conspiracy of the daring robbery. Several teams of south District are conducting raids at Bijnor, Moradabad and Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh to arrest the remaining accused," he added.

          Drones Give North Dakota Farmers a New Tool to Grow Crops   
By Billings Gazette
Drone technology is helping some farmers in North Dakota keep tabs on their livelihood like never before by giving them an aerial perspective on field conditions and crops.

Jeremy Wilson has been planting corn, soybeans and wheat in the Fargo area for nearly two decades and has seen his share of advancements in technology.

"Neat seeing things that work and how it works. And some things that don't work that well but was a valiant effort," said Wilson. The drones have provided a new vantage point for farmers, saving them time and money.

"Pretty cheap, simple and fast," Wilson said.

Agricultural companies, including Peterson Farms Seed, are also exploring the ways drones can be used in crop development

Rather than walking into a field or taking a look from a pickup truck, drones provide a whole new perspective on field conditions, said Peterson spokesman Nolan Berg.

"(They're) really opening some farmers' eyes to things they normally couldn't see,' Berg said. "You can see stand issues, whether there are wet spots in your field or fertility issues."

Berg said it's another tool for farmers in their collection of agricultural resources.

"It's not an end-all situation. But it does help us get better at what we're already doing within the field," said Berg.

          Harris, ND Partner to Create First-Ever BVLOS Network for UAVs   
By UAS Magazine
Harris Corp. has received a two-year grant to help develop a first-of-its-kind solution to enable beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) operations for unmanned aircraft systems.

Representatives from Harris and North Dakota announced a partnership agreement recently to create the first UAS network in the nation to provide a full range of aviation-grade services for safe and efficient UAS BVLOS operations. Representatives then conducted a UAS flight demonstration during Harris’ Tech Expo held February 27 to March 3 in Melbourne, Florida.

Harris will partner with the University of North Dakota and the Northern Plains UAS Test Site to develop the network infrastructure system under a Research North Dakota grant awarded by the North Dakota Centers of Excellence Commission.

The grant includes the development of aviation-grade network services specifically for UAS operations. It is a continuation of a previous grant that included development and a risk and safety assessment of UAS detect-and-avoid technology. The UAS BVLOS network will be developed within the Grand Forks-to-Fargo corridor.

Harris is working to create a regional infrastructure that is scalable to the whole state of North Dakota, and eventually to the entire U.S. Developing this high-performance networked infrastructure will help accelerate regulatory approval of BVLOS UAS operations.

"The use of UAS for business operations—such as remotely monitoring power lines, farms, and rail tracks—represents the future for many organizations," said George Kirov, vice president and general manager, Commercial UAS Solutions, Harris Electronic Systems. "Harris is applying the same innovation and expertise that made us a leader in manned aircraft air traffic management solutions to integrate commercial UAS operations into the National Airspace System.”

“By collaborating with the University of North Dakota and Harris, the Northern Plains UAS Test Site will have the opportunity to evaluate, develop, and implement a UAS network and airspace services,” said Nicholas Flom, executive director for the Northern Plains UAS Test Site. “This network will create a real-world environment for users to develop, test and certify new products and services.”

“North Dakota is committed to creating an environment where organizations like Harris Corporation, the University of North Dakota, and the Northern Plains UAS Test Site may pursue new and exciting opportunities with UAS,” said Brian Opp, manager, Aerospace Business Development, North Dakota Department of Commerce.

Harris is looking to partner with end users, such as railroads and electric utility companies in the area, to create UAS test scenarios. As the project continues, Harris expects to test scenarios including railway inspection, roadway inspection, transmission line inspection, precision agriculture, public safety and emergency services, expanded flight operations, and more.

          Diverse Economy Keeping State Healthy, Anderson says: State Commerce Commissioner says ND Remains in Good Shape Despite Budget Shortfall   
By The Jamestown Sun
North Dakota’s economy is more diverse than what some think and that is why it is still strong despite a $2 billion hit to the state economy, according to Alan Anderson, commissioner of the North Dakota Department of Commerce.

That kind of drop would really hurt the $18 billion North Dakota economy in 2000, and it still hurt in 2015, but the difference now is the state has a $55 billion economy, Anderson said in his keynote address Wednesday at the annual meeting of the Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corp.

“It is going to be pain for the state budget but overall North Dakota is extremely healthy from an economic standpoint,” Anderson said, adding that legislators and agencies will continue to face pressure to cut costs.

A diversified economy means the state must continue providing research dollars to universities and industry partners while also ensuring dollars for other growth and entrepreneurism, he said.

The Spiritwood Energy Park Association’s industrial park at Spiritwood is an example of best practices, Anderson said. It provides water, electricity, natural gas, rail and truck transportation and the essentials for industry at one spot. The new Jamestown Regional Medical Center facility, the Menards and economic parks are other signs of good innovation, he said.

“My hat is off to all of you,” Anderson said. “You’re doing a great job on that.”

Another key to the strong economy is the North Dakota workforce, which has gone from a labor exporter in 2000 to leading the nation in low unemployment and worker immigration for six years, he said. Despite three years of low ag prices and a 40 percent drop in oil, there are 15,000 job openings in North Dakota, he said.

“It’s not due to one particular industry like some would have you believe,” he said. “It’s been that all of our industries have done well over that time frame.”

To get people to come to North Dakota employment and opportunities are needed, he said. North Dakota has grown in population by over 100,000 people in the last 15 years and the average age is 35, the fourth-youngest population in the country. That happened by creating a business-friendly environment, supporting research and connecting universities with industry, entrepreneurship and finding export markets outside of the state and country, he said.

Anderson listed some of the major companies in North Dakota that are growing and currently list around 15,240 job openings. That is nearly twice the number of the 2.9 percent unemployment rate in North Dakota, he said.

For example, Appareo Systems started with two people and now has an average growth rate of 45 percent with close to 200 employees, he said. The North Dakota company Botink just received a $3 million investment to provide software support to the drone industry.

Northrop just made a $10 million investment in Grand Forks, he said. General Atomics has 25 high-income job openings

Agriculture has had three years of low commodity prices but North Dakota overall is still on a good trajectory, he said. The downside is labor as technology allows for higher productivity with fewer people involved in the process, but the upswing is value-added ag with corporations like Cavendish Farms helping to minimize the impact of low commodity prices, he said.

Anderson said the cost to break even in oil is around $45 a barrel when it used to be $70. This is due to efficiency and technology, he said. Bakken shale is doing better than other shale fields around the country, he said. Drilling will remain idle with $40 per barrel prices, he said, and at $50 per barrel it will stimulate more wells coming online and at $60 there will be new drilling.

“The outlook is good there and as that price continues to go up they will pick up quicker than they would have in the past,” he said.

Connie Ova, CEO of JSDC, Jamestown Mayor Katie Andersen and Mark Klose, chairman of the Stutsman County Commission, presented H&H Holdings of Jamestown with the Growing Jamestown Award. Jim Grueneich, general manager, and Dean Hafner, owner, were present to accept.

H&H received a $43,000 Flex PACE Interest buy down to help purchase a building, according to the JSDC annual report. H&H continues to operate at its current rate and has created seven full- time jobs.

          VIDEO: Grand Forks startup creates software for aerial wind turbine inspection   
By Grand Forks Herald
A pockmark the size of a penny on a 154-foot wind turbine blade doesn't look like much, but with time can turn one into a menace.

If left unattended, the damage could grow and result in expensive repairs, the likes of which Grand Forks startup company EdgeData is trying to prevent through inspections completed by unmanned aircraft.             
EdgeData employees aren't behind the controls of the aircraft but rather the digital platform analyzing photos collected by a camera attached to the device.

"We take images of wind turbines in the field and turn that into consumable data," EdgeData President Chris Shroyer said Thursday.

Cameras mounted on unmanned aircraft are capable of capturing hundreds or thousands of pictures in a single flight, but those images may be unusable unless processed in a way that shows the customer exactly what they want to see, including the location of potential problems on a blade.

"Instead of looking at 900 pictures, we're only looking at five," Director of Operations Greg Thorsteinson said.

The software, called BladeEdge, allows the company to remove organic material, such as dirt and bird feces, from images so customers can get a better picture of damage to a blade. The analysis produced by the company's software also tracks the conditions of blades and automatically sets up maintenance cycles.

Inspection progress
Maintaining a database of information about blade condition is critical for turbine owners and manufacturers.

EdgeData's software allows owners to track repair needs and provides manufacturers with information about their product's performance.

In Grand Forks, one of those manufacturers is LM Wind Power, which produces three types of wind blades and is often the first point of contact when customers notice something is wrong with their turbine.

Catching problems early is key to prolonging the life of the blades, according to John Jeno, senior engineering manager at LM Wind Power Blades Inc.

"Blades are a wear item—they need to be maintained. And if you catch (damages) when they're small, it's a very simple, fast fix," Jeno said. "If you don't take care of it and a year goes by, then you're talking about a couple of guys and climbing platforms. ... That becomes an expensive repair."

Under normal conditions, the blades spin at about 100 mph. Buildup from bugs, dirt, dust and bird feces all affect the blades performance, as do collisions with objects such as hailstones and grit, which erode the protective coating on the blade.

"If you lose some of these coats, especially on the leading edge (of the blade), it can degrade very quickly and rapidly," Shroyer said.

Finding erosion, cracks and other damage falls to an inspection crew. Without an unmanned aircraft, a three-man crew climbing the structure would complete an inspection on one turbine in the course of a day.

"You're hanging a guy off a rope with a three-man team, and that's expensive. It's time-consuming and it puts somebody at risk," Jeno said. "Or you're bringing in a crane to get up 345 feet."

The high cost of inspections means some turbine owners defer maintenance until a problem grows too large to ignore. The use of unmanned aircraft will likely bring a level of affordability to inspections that will allow owners to perform them more often on their turbines, Jeno said.

The aircraft coupled with the software is expected to make quick work of future inspections, with Shroyer predicting as many as 10 a day once technology is advanced enough. For now, he estimates a unmanned aircraft system team could complete five inspections a day.

In-house flights
EdgeData has had opportunities to put its software to the test in the region and on the East Coast, as its crews have flown around turbines in North Dakota and Massachusetts.

The company also has sections of turbine blades mounted in its office, located in the UND Tech Accelerator. The presence of the parts allows the company to conduct research when weather conditions outside are not ideal, Shroyer said.

A 23-foot blade tip—an entire blade is about 154 feet—stands upright in the office and, complete with nicks and other damage to be detected during flights, serves as a practice specimen.

As Edgedata deals in data analysis, it partners with other firms to complete flights. In Grand Forks, one possible partner is another startup, SkySkopes, which offers aerial photography and video services for inspecting infrastructure.

"EdgeData is an asset to the (UAS) ecosystem, especially locally," Skyskopes President Matt Dunlevy said, referring to the fact that small UAS-related companies in Grand Forks usually have a specialization and, therefore, often form partnerships with one another to conduct research and advance the technology.

Founded in December, EdgeData has operated from its current office since May.

The month prior, it received a $450,000 grant from Research ND, a program facilitated by the state Department of Commerce.

With a specialty in data, the company has a number of security measure in place to protect the data it captures for customers. Larger data collection means more security rules, as some wind farms are considered critical power infrastructure and need to be protected from hacking.

"Security is the highest priority," Thorsteinson said.

          Building a Giant in the Heavy-Equipment Industry   
By Gallup
"To be successful today, you've got to convince customers that you'll take care of them when they're down -- and you've got to walk the walk, you can't just talk it. You've got to prove it time and time again."

So says Ron Offutt, founder of RDO Equipment Co., one of the largest John Deere dealers in North America. He is also the founder of R.D. Offutt Company, the largest potato grower in the U.S.

For more than 45 years, Ron has been building an empire on lifelong relationships with agriculture and construction equipment customers by adhering to three simple principles: maintain a sense of core values, understand your stakeholders' ever-shifting needs and deliver the finest service. His family business grew steadily, got big, went public and then was taken private again, and the equipment side became a $2 billion business.

It all started along the North Dakota-Minnesota border in the metropolitan area of Fargo-Moorhead in 1968. Ron was farming in partnership with his father and renting equipment from a John Deere dealer in Casselton, North Dakota, when the dealer offered him the opportunity to buy the business.

From that initial purchase, Ron steadily acquired John Deere dealerships throughout the upper Midwest. RDO now operates in more than 100 locations across the U.S. and worldwide, with 90% domestic revenue growth over the past five years (13.9% compound annual growth rate) and nearly triple domestic operating income growth. RDO offers a wide array of construction and farming equipment for high-performance companies across the globe.

How did one dealership turn into a giant in the heavy equipment industry? With an intense focus on engaging employees and customers throughout their business.

From Private, to Public, to Private Again

A visit to RDO in late 2014 finds a workforce brimming with excitement about the company's heritage and its future. In the flagship Moorhead location, relics from the past -- classic tractors and other historical machinery -- are on display alongside cutting-edge farming equipment. In a daily storewide meeting, team members discuss the projects they are currently working on and exchange ideas, while managers motivate their employees with goals for that day, week and month.

Employees at the store are quick to say that the company is a "great place to work."

"This is a great industry to be in, and if you're going to be a part of it, we want you to choose us," says Jean Zimmerman, RDO's executive vice president of organizational development.

Zimmerman notes that the company's culture is guided by the principles of servant leadership, radical transparency, personal growth and, above all, trust.

As RDO grew throughout the 1970s, 80s and 90s, so did the enticement of taking this family-owned business public. In 1997, Ron issued an initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange. In a booming economy, the decision seemed to be the right one. But almost immediately, things didn't turn out as planned.

"Very quickly I knew that I didn't like the public game, and I don't think my father did either. There was lots and lots of pressure to grow," says Christi Offutt, Ron's daughter and chairwoman and CEO of RDO. "But what I was learning was that the more pressure the team got to meet quarterly expectations, the worse the company was performing. We were moving away from talking about the customer, we were moving away from talking about the culture, and we were spending all of our time talking about meeting analyst expectations to keep the revenues growing."

Amid these frustrations, the board of directors chose Christi to become chief operating officer in 2001. Soon after that, the Offutt family took the company private again, where it has remained ever since. Christi stayed at the helm. Ron characterizes this time as the dividing point between what RDO originally was and what it is today.

"I think there are two cultures in the life of our business: the one that I started, and the one that Christi started," Ron says. "I was able to be successful in the business when I created a culture of tremendous loyalty on behalf of the employees who worked for me. We knew each other's families; we knew each other's personal strengths and weaknesses. As [the company] grew, that culture needed to change for the company to take the next step, which Christi brought to the house."

Shifting From a Transactional Business to a Solutions Provider

In the company's first phase, before Christi took over in 2001, RDO sold much more individual agricultural equipment. Farms were smaller then, and there were more of them.

"When I started, [RDO] was very much a transactional business -- sale by sale, customer by customer," Ron says. "Today it's more about being a solutions provider for your customer and helping that customer solve his or her problem."

In RDO's modern culture, top leaders at the company say they maintain their success internally and externally by adhering to a set of action-oriented core values for business operation. These values include collaborating with employees, building customers for life, creating opportunities and committing to doing what they say and playing to win. RDO prides itself on the principle "There are no secrets here."

"We've instilled and empowered our managers to understand what our core values are and how we operate with our stakeholders so they can make the right decision," says Chris Cooper, an executive vice president at RDO.

Keith Kreps, also an RDO executive vice president, says a culture of creativity and trust exists companywide, which fosters innovation and high levels of employee engagement. "When you don't feel like you're paralyzed by making the wrong decision that could affect your career or affect your job -- as long as you made an educated decision -- you really get people coming out with great ideas and a lot of creativity. They're willing to go out there and 'wow' our other employees and customers," Kreps says.

Toward True Engagement

In 2014, RDO worked with Gallup to move beyond employee satisfaction -- which focuses more on superficial company perks -- to true employee engagement, which is about fostering a deeper sense of connection to one's job and company. Now, 52% of RDO's employees are engaged, with 8.67 engaged employees for every one actively disengaged employee. Organizations that lead the world in employee engagement have 9.1 engaged employees to every disengaged employee, so these are "very encouraging early results," Zimmerman says.

Zimmerman credits these results to initiatives the company implemented over the past several years. Every employee now has an individual learning plan, and RDO spends 15% more on training than comparable-sized organizations. The company offers a 30-month management institute for its leaders. RDO leaders have also integrated engagement into their leadership approach and communication strategy, weaving it into their operations and day-to-day conversations.

"I truly believe that the initiatives we've developed to support our culture along with a strengths-based leadership approach leads to a more engaged workplace culture," Christi says.

Zimmerman agrees, emphasizing that the culture must promote hard work and RDO must be an enjoyable place to work. "We've taken steps of making this a place that attracts and keeps employees and attracts and keeps our customers," he says.

Growing Pains

Because of RDO's persistent growth, the company is experiencing some growing pains. In part, this is the result of the breakneck pace of North Dakota's economy and the various challenges that come with operating in nine U.S. states. Business is booming so much that there are too many jobs and not enough people to fill them.

"We've got well over 2,000 employees, but we have opportunities to continue to grow," Cooper says. "We have close to 200 open positions that we're still trying to fill."

Christi mentions that there is plenty of competition for today's skilled labor pool: "We've recruited from everywhere -- Georgia, Florida, California, Alaska -- it's a continuous challenge."

Amid these challenges, RDO continues to redefine the business of equipment in the 21st century. The company's leaders say RDO is committed to finding cutting-edge solutions for its customers.

"I think you'll see less growth in the size of the machines," Ron says. "What you're going to see is more intelligent equipment, and that will increase productivity for the producer."

This kind of "precision agriculture" may keep RDO at the forefront of offering technological solutions to its customers, and the company sees further growth from its ventures in Russia, Ukraine, Mexico and Australia in the years to come. Already these international partnerships are providing solutions to a wide range of customers, even in troubled hot spots. RDO forecasts $360 million in international revenues in 2015, of which Russia and Ukraine factor into the mix.

Ryan Offutt, Ron's son and Christi's brother, runs RDO's Russia and Ukraine operations. As someone who represents the future of RDO and the path it will take in decades to come, he reflects on how what RDO means to customers in 2015. "We're a big part of our customers' lives, and they're dependent upon on our team members to deliver solutions to them every day," Ryan says. "Having a reliable partner is critical to their success."

          APUC to Review Funding Requests Totaling $304,808    
By ND Commerce
The North Dakota Agricultural Products Utilization Commission (APUC) will review funding requests for eleven projects totaling $304,808 at its quarterly meeting July 22nd at the Rough Riders Hotel and Conference Facility in Medora.
 
APUC is a committee of the North Dakota Department of Commerce that administers grant programs for researching and developing new and expanded uses for North Dakota agricultural products. The grants can be used for basic and applied research, marketing and utilization, farm diversification, nature based agri-tourism, prototype and technology, and technical assistance.
 
The following requests will be reviewed:
 
Amberland Foods Inc. (Harvey) is requesting $23,515 to make improvements to their products and create safer working conditions for employees. Providing nutritional information for their products will increase potential business opportunities by allowing them to approach health conscious customers, distributors, chains and specialty stores that require this type of labeling. Contact Tami Feist at 701-324-4804 for additional information.
 
Morning Joy Farm (Mercer) is requesting $26,250 for consideration in a farm diversification enhancement to their existing operation. The enhancement would utilize farm products to meet consumer demand for ready-to-eat foods and baked goods by building a commercial kitchen. Contact Annie Carlson at 701-447-2649 for additional information.
 
Buchholz Machine Shop (Lehr) is requesting $26,250 to transform a milk barn into a machine shop as well as purchasing a vertical milling machine to produce parts for area manufacturers. This will allow them to produce and promote their own products, which include an ice auger extension piece. Funds will be used for equipment and building materials. Contact Todd Buchholz at 701-321-2936 for additional information.
 
NDSU Dept. of Veterinary and Microbiology Sciences (Fargo) is requesting $76,140 to defray costs associated with the purchase of supplies for the development and testing of a program to prevent illness from bacterial infectious from the transmission of bacteria to food processing equipment. Biofilm (communities of bacteria that attach to surfaces and one another) inhibitors will be infused into materials that are relevant in agricultural contexts, which can then be used for food processing equipment to prevent the transmission of pathogens. Funds will also partially support the salaries of the project personnel. Contact Dr. Birgit Pruess at 701-231-7848 for additional information.
 
Golden Growers Cooperative (Fargo) is requesting $75,000 for costs associated with a valuation study and market assessment for current and potential food ingredients, feed and renewable chemicals that can be produced or utilize from a corn wet mill facility. It will also estimate the value of a corn wet mill based under various future market conditions. Contact Scott Stofferahn at 701-281-0468 for additional information.
 
NDSU Dept. of Animal and Range Sciences (Fargo) is requesting $50,000 to continue studying the role of nutrition in mammary cancer development. The study will investigate the effect of dietary canola oil and lipotropic nutrients in breast cancer development and growth. Over the years their research has shown the anticancer effect of lipocan nutrients. This innovative concept is aimed at the development of an anticancer nutraceutical product. Contact Dr. Chung Park at 701-231-7670 for additional information.
 
Crocus View Farms (Rock Lake) is requesting $5,407 to expand services and products by reaching out to provide educational and informative rural development programs to community groups. Services include the selling of baked goods, produce from garden, eggs, pumpkins, fall pumpkin patch picking, corn maze, hands-on animal experiences, bale climbing and many other rural environmental activities. Contact Carie Moore at 701-303-0143 for additional information.
 
NDSU Dept. of Agribusiness and Applied Economics (Fargo) is requesting $22,246 to facilitate a study to develop a supply schedule for flax straw delivered to a torrefaction facility located in southeast North Dakota. Results of the study will be validated and complemented by meetings and a mail survey to potential flax growers and flax straw suppliers. Grant funds will also be used for faculty to oversee the project.  Contact Juan Murguia at 701-231-6640 for additional information.

Nintendo announces new games for Switch

During the most recent Nintendo Direct, the mobile gaming giant showed off a few new game titles that will be available to Nintendo Switch users this year.

In addition to announcing big games like Minecraft and release date for ARMS, Nintendo Direct confirmed that Project Mekuru is coming to Nintendo Switch this summer.

Gamers will be able to play Project Mekuru in a four-player battle mode and the gameplay will include taking over territory on an attractive board by ground-pounding to match tiles to the color of the player’s character.

It may be noted here that Project Mekuru made a brief appearance in a sizzle reel that was shown off at the Switch reveal event in January this year. But very little information was revealed at the time.

NIS also confirmed that its new game “Disgaea 5 Complete” will also be rolled out for Nintendo Switch players on 23rd of May this year.

Tooele, UTAH Reason #208 Why One Should Book a Treatment at "Amara Day Spa" in Lehi (http://www.AmaraDaySpa.com) with Master Esthetician Taryn Korinne is to Improve The Skin-Texture with an "Amara Signature Facial" (SkinMedica & Glymed)

What is a chemical peel? A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun. There are three (3) basic types of chemical peels:
https://www.asds.net/ChemicalPeelsInformation.aspx

1- Superficial or lunchtime peel: Alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid is used to penetrate only the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate it. The treatment is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin as well as to refresh the face, neck, chest or hands.

2- Medium peel: Glycolic or trichloroacetic acid is applied to penetrate the out and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment is used to improve age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and moderate skin discoloration. It also can be used to smooth rough skin and treat some precancerous skin growths, i.e. actinic keratosis.

3- Deep peel: Tricholoracetic acid or phenol is applied to deeply penetrate the middle layer of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment removes moderate lines, age spots, freckles and shallow scars. Patients will see a dramatic improvement in skin appearance. The procedure is used on the face and only can be performed once.
http://tntesthetics.com/contact-us/

When is a chemical peel appropriate? Chemical peels are used to treat a number of conditions including:
Acne scars, Aging skin, Crow's feet, Scars, Sun damaged skin, Sagging skin, Wrinkles. What can one expect after having a chemical peel? All peels require some follow-up care:

A)- Superficial peels require one to seven days to heal. Treated skin will initially be red and may scale. Lotion or cream should be applied until the skin heals, followed by daily use of sunscreen. Makeup can usually be worn the next day.

B)- Medium peels require seven to 14 days to heal. Treated skin will initially be red and swollen. Swelling worsens for the first 48 hours. Eyelids may swell shut. Blisters may form and break. Skin can crust and peel off in seven to 14 days. Skin must be soaked daily for a specified period, followed by ointment application. Antiviral medication is taken for 10 to 14 days. Mild lotion or cream may be applied. Avoid all sun exposure until healing is complete. Camouflage makeup may be worn after five to seven days. A follow-up appointment will be necessary to monitor progress.
http://www.amaradayspa.com/team/team_lehi.php

C)- Deep peels require 14 to 21 days to heal. The treated area will be bandaged. Skin must be soaked four to six times daily, followed by ointment application for the first 14 days. Afterwards a thick moisturizer is applied for the next 14 days. Antiviral medication is taken for 10 to 14 days. Mild lotion or cream may be applied. Avoid all sun exposure for three to six months. Camouflage makeup may be worn after 14 days. Several follow-up appointments will be necessary to monitor progress.

Sun exposure and smoking after a chemical peel must be avoided because they can cause unwanted side effects, including infection and scarring.

What is a Facial? People get facials for different reasons: Some people want those horrible blackheads out! Others start taking care of their skin in their 20's to preserve a youthful look. Older people want some help with anti-again regimens. And then there are the people who just want to relax and be pampered. These are all fine reasons to get facials. However, often the facial itself is a bit mysterious. What does the steam do? Why do they keep putting creams on and taking them off? Why get facials regularly? A facial is essentially a multi-step skin treatment that is one of the best ways to take care of ones skin. A facial cleanses, exfoliates and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion, and can help skin look younger. One will also receive advice on the best way to take care of the skin. A facial works best when it is part of an on-going program of skin care.

The Basic Steps of a Facial:
1- Consultation. A facial should begin with a consultation. One might fill out a form with questions about their skin concerns, diet, how much water one drinks, which drugs and supplements one takes, and products one is currently using. 'Retin-A' and other drugs can affects the skin and what kind of treatments the esthetician recommends.

2- Preparations. Usually the esthetician offers a wrap that goes around the body and underneath the arms, then closes with velcro. Some people remove all their clothes before putting on the wrap, some leave their pants on, and some even leave their bra on and put the straps underneath their arms. And at some spas, clients are invited to take off some or all of your clothes and get between the sheets. Don't worry too much -- the esthetician will let the client know the protocol where oen is.

3- Cleansing. Usually the esthetician starts by wrapping the hair with a towel or headband to keep product off of it. The first step is thorough cleansing, using cotton pads, esthetician wipes or sponges. Most professional facials do a double-cleanse.

4- Skin Analysis and Cleansing. Depending on whether one has make-up on, the esthetician might look at the skin under a bright lamp first, or covers the eyes and looks at the skin through a brightly lit magnifying lamp. She is determining the basic skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive or normal) and skin conditions (acne, blackheads, whiteheads, aging, sun-damage, dehydration, etc.) The esthetician then chooses the appropriate products and treatments, and consults with ythe client about what he or she sees and recommends.

5- Steam. Most facials use a machine that directs a thin vapor of warm steam to the face. This is relaxing and helps softens up any blackheads and whiteheads to be extracted. If the client has very sensitive skin, the esthetician may not use steam.

6- Exfoliation using a mechanical or 'chemical exfoliant.' Mechanical exfoliant's have a gritty texture that rubs away the surface dead skin cells. This type of exfoliation usually happens during the steam. Chemical exfoliation uses enzymes and acids to loosen the bond between skin cells. A gentle enzyme treatment can be done during the steam. Stronger chemical peels, which vary in intensity, can be a stand-alone treatment or part of the facial.
http://www.amaradayspa.com/team/

7- Extractions. This is the removal of blackheads or whiteheads if one wants it and need it. People have different pain tolerance for extractions. They can be uncomfortable, especially on thin or ruddy skin. Extractions can cause broken capillaries and discoloration if done improperly. Watch a video of extractions being performed.

8- Facial massage using classic strokes like effleurage to both relax the client and stimulate their skin and facial muscles.

9- Facial mask targeted to the clients skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive, mature) and condition.

10- Final application of toner, serums, moisturizer and sunscreen if it's daytime.

What's a Chemical Treatment and Why Do I Need Them? What is Dermabrasion? Dermabrasion is a procedure that uses a wire brush or a diamond wheel with rough edges to remove and level the upper layer of skin. The treated area heals, allowing new skin to grow in its place. It often is used for facial procedures.

What should first be done before considering dermabrasion? Patients should understand that dermabrasion injures the skin and must be prepared with how they will look immediately after treatment and during the healing process. Post-procedure instructions must be carefully followed to avoid infection and ensure proper healing. It's also important to have realistic treatment expectations. Typically a 50 percent improvement in the skin condition is considered a good result. It may take several weeks or months for full results to become apparent.
https://www.asds.net/_PublicResources.aspx?id=536&terms=facials

When is dermabrasion appropriate? Dermabrasion can be used to treat: Superficial acne scars, Age/Brown spots, Crow's feet, Scars, Skin growths, Skin lesions, Sun-damaged skin, and Wrinkles.

Book A Facial with Taryn Today! http://www.amaradayspa.com/request-appointment

Who is not a candidate for dermabrasion? Patients are not good candidates if they have: Used isotretinoin to treat acne within the last six to 12 months, Recently had a facelift or brow-lift, A history of keloid or hypertrophic scarring, An active herpes infection or other skin infection, Skin that is overly sensitive to cold, A skin, blood or immune disorder that could make healing more difficult.

Is dermabrasion painful? Dermabrasion can be uncomfortable, so local anesthetics are used to numb the skin before treatment. A freezing spray may also be used to numb and prepare the treated area. For larger treatments, such as full facials, a general anesthesia may be used. Ice packs may also be used during the procedure. After treatment most patients report little or no pain, though some require pain relievers as well as a corticosteroid for swelling.
http://www.amaradayspa.com/day-spa/#wax

What are the potential complications of dermabrasion? Uneven changes in skin color, Darkening of the skin, usually caused by sun exposure in the days and months following surgery, Swelling, Scarring, and Infection.

What can I expect after having had dermabrasion? Patients will be required to follow a post-procedure regimen that includes: Cleansing the skin several times a day to avoid infection and remove crusting, Changing the ointment or dressing on the wound to keep the area moist and promote healing, Avoiding sun exposure and, after healing, using a daily sunscreen, Possibly taking an antiviral drug to prevent infection, Several follow-up visits to monitor your skin's healing and to identify and treat early signs of infection or other complications.

Eyebrow trends come and go, from thin and sharp to bold and bushy a la Cara Delevingne and basically every other model who's been hot in the past few years. But the latest trend is micro-blading, a new tattoo technique that fills brows out or reshapes them by drawing on tiny lines that look like individual hairs.

Micro-blading is a way of semi-permanent make-up, where through manual process of inserting pigment into the upper layers of skin we create the desired fullness and shape of the eyebrows. The effects last up to 12 months after which the pigment fades leaving the skin and your natural brows exactly as they were. Result looks natural and flawless as hair effect is recreated on the skin.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AddM1LafzIM&feature=youtu.be

Nothing tells the story of ones face more than the eyebrows do. Eyebrows are the window to the soul. If one was born with bad eyebrows, or if they are still suffering from the aftermath of a waxing incident in 2004, then one probably find eyebrows to be a 'point of stress' for them. One must wake up every morning and draw them on with an eyebrow pencil, or fill them in with a pomade or powder. And if one does neither of those things and just wakes up, says "crap" and walks out the door, then they are a brave, brave person. It's called micro-blading.

When one has tried every pencil, powder, pigment, gel, stencil, ancient tribal chant, prayer, etc. and brows still are weak, it's time to look at a more permanent solution to thin or bad brows. Micro-blading is a semi-permanent brow tattoo procedure thatis life changing. Don't let the concept of a tattoo on the face scare. Unlike a regular tattoo, micro-blading is a form of tattooing where a trained artist uses a handheld tool instead of a machine. They draw hair-like strokes to mimic what the brows would look like if they were fuller. The result, if done right, looks natural and will be the only tattoo to never regret getting.

Micro-blading is done with a hand-held tool — it "looks like an X-ACTO knife made out of needles," — that puts pigment into the skin, but doesn't go as deep as a normal tattoo would. It's also semi-permanent. The client's micro-bladed brows should last between one and three years; 18 months is typical for most of people. The procedure differs depending where ones go's. As always, when it comes to any sort of elective procedure on the face, vet the micro-blading expert. An experienced and legit technician should have previous photos of his/her work available for one to look at.
http://shopamara.com/

The cool thing about micro-blading that one can learn from Taryn Korinne is that one can have zero brows, blonde ultra-faint brows, have lost brows due to alopecia, or just need a little help filling the arches in — either way, she's got it covered and will create a legit appearance of naturally full brows. She even creates a custom color that matches the natural brow color and uses several shades, so they look multidimensional and natural!

What exactly is Brow Sculpting? "Brow sculpting is the term given to a semi-permanent, textured eyebrow gel/skin paint that is applied to the skin to define and fill in eyebrows," explains Urla Duncan, President of Winks Eyelash Boutique in Toronto. "It's a great alternative to filling in your brows daily."
http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2016/01/21/eyebrow-tinting-sculpting_n_9038396.html

If the brow bone is barren and a good portion of the morning is dedicated to create or filling in the brows, or one may have considered permanent makeup, then one may be in luck. Brow sculpting is now a thing. Threading salons across the US are increasingly beginning to invest in the newest brow craze that creates and sculpts brows using a 3D sculpting gel that mimics the appearance of hair. Each brow takes thirty minutes and the results are waterproof, smudge-proof—life-proof—brows that won't require any retouching until the next appointment three weeks later.

What's the procedure like? The sculpting procedure begins with an analysis of the brows to determine the best shape for the eye. After trimming and tweezing, the brows are filled in with a powder as a means to outline the desired shape. Duncan tells us that sculpting gel is "custom mixed to ensure the perfect shade." Using a fine applicator, the gel is then applied directly to skin in hair like strokes, giving off a 3D effect. "They last for weeks and fade gradually. This service is done to fill in gaps and give the illusion of hair where there isn't any," Duncan says. "It is a great way to add density and definition for beautiful brows without the daily fuss."

Want to intensify 'the sculpt?' Two words: eyebrow extensions. For that 4D look with texture, eyebrow extensions can be added on to the sculpting treatment. Conclusion: if one wants a darker, more drastic brow, go for the brow tinting. If one wants a more natural, textured brow, go for the gel sculpting.

Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different Human hair growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic area called bikini waxing, legs, arms, back, abdomen, knuckles and feet.

1- Strip waxing (soft wax) is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is applied and pressed firmly; the strip adheres to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma to the skin. This removes both the wax along with the hair.

2- Strip-less wax (as opposed to strip wax), also referred to as hard wax, is applied somewhat thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a therapist without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have Sensitive skin. Strip-less wax does not adhere to the skin as much as strip wax does, thus making it a good option for sensitive skin as finer hairs are more easily removed because the hard wax encapsulates the hair as it hardens. The strip-less waxing method can also be less painful.

There are many benefits to waxing versus other forms of hair removal. It is an effective method to remove large amounts of hair at one time. It is a long-lasting method. Hair in waxed areas will not grow back for two to eight weeks. When hair is shaved or removed by Chemical depilatory cream, the hair is removed at the surface rather than the hair root. Within a few days, the hair can be seen at the surface. There are drawbacks of waxing: Waxing can be painful when the strip is removed from the skin. Although the pain is not long-lasting, it can be intense, particularly in sensitive areas. Another drawback to waxing is the expense: waxing should be performed by

Hi, this is Leigh, owner of Amara. I would love to take you through the journey of my story. 

I have always had a passion for helping, serving and making people feel beautiful.  I attended Esthetics school and graduated in January of 2000. I quickly realized that there weren't many options for pursuing my passions in the small town that I lived in.  I was fortunate to get hired at a small place in Orem, Utah. I worked day in and day out to build my clientele and build relationships with everyone I came in contact with because I just love people. I was fortunate enough to work closely with our owners and managed the salon for close to five years. I am forever grateful for the opportunities, challenges, and mistakes that I was allowed to make and learn from in the beginning of my career. 

In 2005, my new husband Tyler and I bought a small home and turned the basement into "Amara Day Spa."  In the beginning, it was just me and my amazing sister Tessa, who was apprenticing under me. I hoped and prayed that my guests would come and see me at our new humble location.  I was so proud that from the minute we opened, people came.

I've always known in my heart that it doesn't matter where you are located, if you have expensive equipment, or even the latest and greatest treatment.  What matters is that the guest is "WOW-ed" each time they come and that they feel better about themselves when they leave.  I believe that is why we continued to grow, so much so that in 2007 we built a home in Lindon, Utah, and dedicated the entire basement to Amara.  We did spa services, massages, and injectables and soon grew out of that location.

My husband and I took a leap of faith in 2009 and bought a 3,000 square foot location in Orem.  We invested hundreds of thousands of dollars of our own money, and I am forever grateful for a husband that has always supported my dreams and has been by my side every step of the way.  We expanded services and hired 30 staff members to open with and thankfully they have worked with us through thick and thin.  In 2012, we needed to expand again.  We were able to purchase another 3,000 square feet right next to us and began building again.  We did all of this without shutting down for one day.  In 2016, we will open our second location in Lehi, Utah. 

My goal is to continue to mentor others, help them succeed in the game of life, and create their own happiness in all they do. -Leigh Bennett, Owner

What is a chemical peel? A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun. There are three (3) basic types of chemical peels:
https://www.asds.net/ChemicalPeelsInformation.aspx

1- Superficial or lunchtime peel: Alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid is used to penetrate only the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate it. The treatment is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin as well as to refresh the face, neck, chest or hands.

2- Medium peel: Glycolic or trichloroacetic acid is applied to penetrate the out and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment is used to improve age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and moderate skin discoloration. It also can be used to smooth rough skin and treat some precancerous skin growths, i.e. actinic keratosis.

3- Deep peel: Tricholoracetic acid or phenol is applied to deeply penetrate the middle layer of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment removes moderate lines, age spots, freckles and shallow scars. Patients will see a dramatic improvement in skin appearance. The procedure is used on the face and only can be performed once.
http://tntesthetics.com/contact-us/

When is a chemical peel appropriate? Chemical peels are used to treat a number of conditions including:
Acne scars, Aging skin, Crow's feet, Scars, Sun damaged skin, Sagging skin, Wrinkles. What can one expect after having a chemical peel? All peels require some follow-up care:

A)- Superficial peels require one to seven days to heal. Treated skin will initially be red and may scale. Lotion or cream should be applied until the skin heals, followed by daily use of sunscreen. Makeup can usually be worn the next day.

B)- Medium peels require seven to 14 days to heal. Treated skin will initially be red and swollen. Swelling worsens for the first 48 hours. Eyelids may swell shut. Blisters may form and break. Skin can crust and peel off in seven to 14 days. Skin must be soaked daily for a specified period, followed by ointment application. Antiviral medication is taken for 10 to 14 days. Mild lotion or cream may be applied. Avoid all sun exposure until healing is complete. Camouflage makeup may be worn after five to seven days. A follow-up appointment will be necessary to monitor progress.
http://www.amaradayspa.com/team/team_lehi.php

C)- Deep peels require 14 to 21 days to heal. The treated area will be bandaged. Skin must be soaked four to six times daily, followed by ointment application for the first 14 days. Afterwards a thick moisturizer is applied for the next 14 days. Antiviral medication is taken for 10 to 14 days. Mild lotion or cream may be applied. Avoid all sun exposure for three to six months. Camouflage makeup may be worn after 14 days. Several follow-up appointments will be necessary to monitor progress.

Sun exposure and smoking after a chemical peel must be avoided because they can cause unwanted side effects, including infection and scarring.

What is a Facial? People get facials for different reasons: Some people want those horrible blackheads out! Others start taking care of their skin in their 20's to preserve a youthful look. Older people want some help with anti-again regimens. And then there are the people who just want to relax and be pampered. These are all fine reasons to get facials. However, often the facial itself is a bit mysterious. What does the steam do? Why do they keep putting creams on and taking them off? Why get facials regularly? A facial is essentially a multi-step skin treatment that is one of the best ways to take care of ones skin. A facial cleanses, exfoliates and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion, and can help skin look younger. One will also receive advice on the best way to take care of the skin. A facial works best when it is part of an on-going program of skin care.

The Basic Steps of a Facial:
1- Consultation. A facial should begin with a consultation. One might fill out a form with questions about their skin concerns, diet, how much water one drinks, which drugs and supplements one takes, and products one is currently using. 'Retin-A' and other drugs can affects the skin and what kind of treatments the esthetician recommends.

2- Preparations. Usually the esthetician offers a wrap that goes around the body and underneath the arms, then closes with velcro. Some people remove all their clothes before putting on the wrap, some leave their pants on, and some even leave their bra on and put the straps underneath their arms. And at some spas, clients are invited to take off some or all of your clothes and get between the sheets. Don't worry too much -- the esthetician will let the client know the protocol where oen is.

3- Cleansing. Usually the esthetician starts by wrapping the hair with a towel or headband to keep product off of it. The first step is thorough cleansing, using cotton pads, esthetician wipes or sponges. Most professional facials do a double-cleanse.

4- Skin Analysis and Cleansing. Depending on whether one has make-up on, the esthetician might look at the skin under a bright lamp first, or covers the eyes and looks at the skin through a brightly lit magnifying lamp. She is determining the basic skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive or normal) and skin conditions (acne, blackheads, whiteheads, aging, sun-damage, dehydration, etc.) The esthetician then chooses the appropriate products and treatments, and consults with ythe client about what he or she sees and recommends.

5- Steam. Most facials use a machine that directs a thin vapor of warm steam to the face. This is relaxing and helps softens up any blackheads and whiteheads to be extracted. If the client has very sensitive skin, the esthetician may not use steam.

6- Exfoliation using a mechanical or 'chemical exfoliant.' Mechanical exfoliant's have a gritty texture that rubs away the surface dead skin cells. This type of exfoliation usually happens during the steam. Chemical exfoliation uses enzymes and acids to loosen the bond between skin cells. A gentle enzyme treatment can be done during the steam. Stronger chemical peels, which vary in intensity, can be a stand-alone treatment or part of the facial.
http://www.amaradayspa.com/team/

7- Extractions. This is the removal of blackheads or whiteheads if one wants it and need it. People have different pain tolerance for extractions. They can be uncomfortable, especially on thin or ruddy skin. Extractions can cause broken capillaries and discoloration if done improperly. Watch a video of extractions being performed.

8- Facial massage using classic strokes like effleurage to both relax the client and stimulate their skin and facial muscles.

9- Facial mask targeted to the clients skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive, mature) and condition.

10- Final application of toner, serums, moisturizer and sunscreen if it's daytime.

What's a Chemical Treatment and Why Do I Need Them? What is Dermabrasion? Dermabrasion is a procedure that uses a wire brush or a diamond wheel with rough edges to remove and level the upper layer of skin. The treated area heals, allowing new skin to grow in its place. It often is used for facial procedures.

What should first be done before considering dermabrasion? Patients should understand that dermabrasion injures the skin and must be prepared with how they will look immediately after treatment and during the healing process. Post-procedure instructions must be carefully followed to avoid infection and ensure proper healing. It's also important to have realistic treatment expectations. Typically a 50 percent improvement in the skin condition is considered a good result. It may take several weeks or months for full results to become apparent.
https://www.asds.net/_PublicResources.aspx?id=536&terms=facials

When is dermabrasion appropriate? Dermabrasion can be used to treat: Superficial acne scars, Age/Brown spots, Crow's feet, Scars, Skin growths, Skin lesions, Sun-damaged skin, and Wrinkles.

Book A Facial with Taryn Today! http://www.amaradayspa.com/request-appointment

Who is not a candidate for dermabrasion? Patients are not good candidates if they have: Used isotretinoin to treat acne within the last six to 12 months, Recently had a facelift or brow-lift, A history of keloid or hypertrophic scarring, An active herpes infection or other skin infection, Skin that is overly sensitive to cold, A skin, blood or immune disorder that could make healing more difficult.

Is dermabrasion painful? Dermabrasion can be uncomfortable, so local anesthetics are used to numb the skin before treatment. A freezing spray may also be used to numb and prepare the treated area. For larger treatments, such as full facials, a general anesthesia may be used. Ice packs may also be used during the procedure. After treatment most patients report little or no pain, though some require pain relievers as well as a corticosteroid for swelling.
http://www.amaradayspa.com/day-spa/#wax

What are the potential complications of dermabrasion? Uneven changes in skin color, Darkening of the skin, usually caused by sun exposure in the days and months following surgery, Swelling, Scarring, and Infection.

What can I expect after having had dermabrasion? Patients will be required to follow a post-procedure regimen that includes: Cleansing the skin several times a day to avoid infection and remove crusting, Changing the ointment or dressing on the wound to keep the area moist and promote healing, Avoiding sun exposure and, after healing, using a daily sunscreen, Possibly taking an antiviral drug to prevent infection, Several follow-up visits to monitor your skin's healing and to identify and treat early signs of infection or other complications.

Eyebrow trends come and go, from thin and sharp to bold and bushy a la Cara Delevingne and basically every other model who's been hot in the past few years. But the latest trend is micro-blading, a new tattoo technique that fills brows out or reshapes them by drawing on tiny lines that look like individual hairs.

Micro-blading is a way of semi-permanent make-up, where through manual process of inserting pigment into the upper layers of skin we create the desired fullness and shape of the eyebrows. The effects last up to 12 months after which the pigment fades leaving the skin and your natural brows exactly as they were. Result looks natural and flawless as hair effect is recreated on the skin.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AddM1LafzIM&feature=youtu.be

Nothing tells the story of ones face more than the eyebrows do. Eyebrows are the window to the soul. If one was born with bad eyebrows, or if they are still suffering from the aftermath of a waxing incident in 2004, then one probably find eyebrows to be a 'point of stress' for them. One must wake up every morning and draw them on with an eyebrow pencil, or fill them in with a pomade or powder. And if one does neither of those things and just wakes up, says "crap" and walks out the door, then they are a brave, brave person. It's called micro-blading.

When one has tried every pencil, powder, pigment, gel, stencil, ancient tribal chant, prayer, etc. and brows still are weak, it's time to look at a more permanent solution to thin or bad brows. Micro-blading is a semi-permanent brow tattoo procedure thatis life changing. Don't let the concept of a tattoo on the face scare. Unlike a regular tattoo, micro-blading is a form of tattooing where a trained artist uses a handheld tool instead of a machine. They draw hair-like strokes to mimic what the brows would look like if they were fuller. The result, if done right, looks natural and will be the only tattoo to never regret getting.

Micro-blading is done with a hand-held tool — it "looks like an X-ACTO knife made out of needles," — that puts pigment into the skin, but doesn't go as deep as a normal tattoo would. It's also semi-permanent. The client's micro-bladed brows should last between one and three years; 18 months is typical for most of people. The procedure differs depending where ones go's. As always, when it comes to any sort of elective procedure on the face, vet the micro-blading expert. An experienced and legit technician should have previous photos of his/her work available for one to look at.
http://shopamara.com/

The cool thing about micro-blading that one can learn from Taryn Korinne is that one can have zero brows, blonde ultra-faint brows, have lost brows due to alopecia, or just need a little help filling the arches in — either way, she's got it covered and will create a legit appearance of naturally full brows. She even creates a custom color that matches the natural brow color and uses several shades, so they look multidimensional and natural!

What exactly is Brow Sculpting? "Brow sculpting is the term given to a semi-permanent, textured eyebrow gel/skin paint that is applied to the skin to define and fill in eyebrows," explains Urla Duncan, President of Winks Eyelash Boutique in Toronto. "It's a great alternative to filling in your brows daily."
http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2016/01/21/eyebrow-tinting-sculpting_n_9038396.html

If the brow bone is barren and a good portion of the morning is dedicated to create or filling in the brows, or one may have considered permanent makeup, then one may be in luck. Brow sculpting is now a thing. Threading salons across the US are increasingly beginning to invest in the newest brow craze that creates and sculpts brows using a 3D sculpting gel that mimics the appearance of hair. Each brow takes thirty minutes and the results are waterproof, smudge-proof—life-proof—brows that won't require any retouching until the next appointment three weeks later.

Syracuse, UTAH Reason #206 Why One Should Book a Service Package at Amara Day Spa in Lehi (http://www.AmaraDaySpa.com) with Master Esthetician Taryn Hewlett is to Prevent Aging (Anti-Aging) with a Basic Microdermabrasion

What is a chemical peel? A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun. There are three (3) basic types of chemical peels:
https://www.asds.net/ChemicalPeelsInformation.aspx

1- Superficial or lunchtime peel: Alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid is used to penetrate only the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate it. The treatment is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin as well as to refresh the face, neck, chest or hands.

2- Medium peel: Glycolic or trichloroacetic acid is applied to penetrate the out and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment is used to improve age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and moderate skin discoloration. It also can be used to smooth rough skin and treat some precancerous skin growths, i.e. actinic keratosis.

3- Deep peel: Tricholoracetic acid or phenol is applied to deeply penetrate the middle layer of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment removes moderate lines, age spots, freckles and shallow scars. Patients will see a dramatic improvement in skin appearance. The procedure is used on the face and only can be performed once.
http://tntesthetics.com/contact-us/

When is a chemical peel appropriate? Chemical peels are used to treat a number of conditions including:
Acne scars, Aging skin, Crow's feet, Scars, Sun damaged skin, Sagging skin, Wrinkles. What can one expect after having a chemical peel? All peels require some follow-up care:

A)- Superficial peels require one to seven days to heal. Treated skin will initially be red and may scale. Lotion or cream should be applied until the skin heals, followed by daily use of sunscreen. Makeup can usually be worn the next day.

B)- Medium peels require seven to 14 days to heal. Treated skin will initially be red and swollen. Swelling worsens for the first 48 hours. Eyelids may swell shut. Blisters may form and break. Skin can crust and peel off in seven to 14 days. Skin must be soaked daily for a specified period, followed by ointment application. Antiviral medication is taken for 10 to 14 days. Mild lotion or cream may be applied. Avoid all sun exposure until healing is complete. Camouflage makeup may be worn after five to seven days. A follow-up appointment will be necessary to monitor progress.
http://www.amaradayspa.com/team/team_lehi.php

C)- Deep peels require 14 to 21 days to heal. The treated area will be bandaged. Skin must be soaked four to six times daily, followed by ointment application for the first 14 days. Afterwards a thick moisturizer is applied for the next 14 days. Antiviral medication is taken for 10 to 14 days. Mild lotion or cream may be applied. Avoid all sun exposure for three to six months. Camouflage makeup may be worn after 14 days. Several follow-up appointments will be necessary to monitor progress.

Sun exposure and smoking after a chemical peel must be avoided because they can cause unwanted side effects, including infection and scarring.

What is a Facial? People get facials for different reasons: Some people want those horrible blackheads out! Others start taking care of their skin in their 20's to preserve a youthful look. Older people want some help with anti-again regimens. And then there are the people who just want to relax and be pampered. These are all fine reasons to get facials. However, often the facial itself is a bit mysterious. What does the steam do? Why do they keep putting creams on and taking them off? Why get facials regularly? A facial is essentially a multi-step skin treatment that is one of the best ways to take care of ones skin. A facial cleanses, exfoliates and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion, and can help skin look younger. One will also receive advice on the best way to take care of the skin. A facial works best when it is part of an on-going program of skin care.

The Basic Steps of a Facial:
1- Consultation. A facial should begin with a consultation. One might fill out a form with questions about their skin concerns, diet, how much water one drinks, which drugs and supplements one takes, and products one is currently using. 'Retin-A' and other drugs can affects the skin and what kind of treatments the esthetician recommends.

2- Preparations. Usually the esthetician offers a wrap that goes around the body and underneath the arms, then closes with velcro. Some people remove all their clothes before putting on the wrap, some leave their pants on, and some even leave their bra on and put the straps underneath their arms. And at some spas, clients are invited to take off some or all of your clothes and get between the sheets. Don't worry too much -- the esthetician will let the client know the protocol where oen is.

3- Cleansing. Usually the esthetician starts by wrapping the hair with a towel or headband to keep product off of it. The first step is thorough cleansing, using cotton pads, esthetician wipes or sponges. Most professional facials do a double-cleanse.

4- Skin Analysis and Cleansing. Depending on whether one has make-up on, the esthetician might look at the skin under a bright lamp first, or covers the eyes and looks at the skin through a brightly lit magnifying lamp. She is determining the basic skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive or normal) and skin conditions (acne, blackheads, whiteheads, aging, sun-damage, dehydration, etc.) The esthetician then chooses the appropriate products and treatments, and consults with ythe client about what he or she sees and recommends.

5- Steam. Most facials use a machine that directs a thin vapor of warm steam to the face. This is relaxing and helps softens up any blackheads and whiteheads to be extracted. If the client has very sensitive skin, the esthetician may not use steam.

6- Exfoliation using a mechanical or 'chemical exfoliant.' Mechanical exfoliant's have a gritty texture that rubs away the surface dead skin cells. This type of exfoliation usually happens during the steam. Chemical exfoliation uses enzymes and acids to loosen the bond between skin cells. A gentle enzyme treatment can be done during the steam. Stronger chemical peels, which vary in intensity, can be a stand-alone treatment or part of the facial.
http://www.amaradayspa.com/team/

7- Extractions. This is the removal of blackheads or whiteheads if one wants it and need it. People have different pain tolerance for extractions. They can be uncomfortable, especially on thin or ruddy skin. Extractions can cause broken capillaries and discoloration if done improperly. Watch a video of extractions being performed.

8- Facial massage using classic strokes like effleurage to both relax the client and stimulate their skin and facial muscles.

9- Facial mask targeted to the clients skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive, mature) and condition.

10- Final application of toner, serums, moisturizer and sunscreen if it's daytime.

What's a Chemical Treatment and Why Do I Need Them? What is Dermabrasion? Dermabrasion is a procedure that uses a wire brush or a diamond wheel with rough edges to remove and level the upper layer of skin. The treated area heals, allowing new skin to grow in its place. It often is used for facial procedures.

What should first be done before considering dermabrasion? Patients should understand that dermabrasion injures the skin and must be prepared with how they will look immediately after treatment and during the healing process. Post-procedure instructions must be carefully followed to avoid infection and ensure proper healing. It's also important to have realistic treatment expectations. Typically a 50 percent improvement in the skin condition is considered a good result. It may take several weeks or months for full results to become apparent.
https://www.asds.net/_PublicResources.aspx?id=536&terms=facials

When is dermabrasion appropriate? Dermabrasion can be used to treat: Superficial acne scars, Age/Brown spots, Crow's feet, Scars, Skin growths, Skin lesions, Sun-damaged skin, and Wrinkles.

Book A Facial with Taryn Today! http://www.amaradayspa.com/request-appointment

Who is not a candidate for dermabrasion? Patients are not good candidates if they have: Used isotretinoin to treat acne within the last six to 12 months, Recently had a facelift or brow-lift, A history of keloid or hypertrophic scarring, An active herpes infection or other skin infection, Skin that is overly sensitive to cold, A skin, blood or immune disorder that could make healing more difficult.

Is dermabrasion painful? Dermabrasion can be uncomfortable, so local anesthetics are used to numb the skin before treatment. A freezing spray may also be used to numb and prepare the treated area. For larger treatments, such as full facials, a general anesthesia may be used. Ice packs may also be used during the procedure. After treatment most patients report little or no pain, though some require pain relievers as well as a corticosteroid for swelling.
http://www.amaradayspa.com/day-spa/#wax

What are the potential complications of dermabrasion? Uneven changes in skin color, Darkening of the skin, usually caused by sun exposure in the days and months following surgery, Swelling, Scarring, and Infection.

What can I expect after having had dermabrasion? Patients will be required to follow a post-procedure regimen that includes: Cleansing the skin several times a day to avoid infection and remove crusting, Changing the ointment or dressing on the wound to keep the area moist and promote healing, Avoiding sun exposure and, after healing, using a daily sunscreen, Possibly taking an antiviral drug to prevent infection, Several follow-up visits to monitor your skin's healing and to identify and treat early signs of infection or other complications.

Eyebrow trends come and go, from thin and sharp to bold and bushy a la Cara Delevingne and basically every other model who's been hot in the past few years. But the latest trend is micro-blading, a new tattoo technique that fills brows out or reshapes them by drawing on tiny lines that look like individual hairs.

Micro-blading is a way of semi-permanent make-up, where through manual process of inserting pigment into the upper layers of skin we create the desired fullness and shape of the eyebrows. The effects last up to 12 months after which the pigment fades leaving the skin and your natural brows exactly as they were. Result looks natural and flawless as hair effect is recreated on the skin.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AddM1LafzIM&feature=youtu.be

Nothing tells the story of ones face more than the eyebrows do. Eyebrows are the window to the soul. If one was born with bad eyebrows, or if they are still suffering from the aftermath of a waxing incident in 2004, then one probably find eyebrows to be a 'point of stress' for them. One must wake up every morning and draw them on with an eyebrow pencil, or fill them in with a pomade or powder. And if one does neither of those things and just wakes up, says "crap" and walks out the door, then they are a brave, brave person. It's called micro-blading.

When one has tried every pencil, powder, pigment, gel, stencil, ancient tribal chant, prayer, etc. and brows still are weak, it's time to look at a more permanent solution to thin or bad brows. Micro-blading is a semi-permanent brow tattoo procedure thatis life changing. Don't let the concept of a tattoo on the face scare. Unlike a regular tattoo, micro-blading is a form of tattooing where a trained artist uses a handheld tool instead of a machine. They draw hair-like strokes to mimic what the brows would look like if they were fuller. The result, if done right, looks natural and will be the only tattoo to never regret getting.

Micro-blading is done with a hand-held tool — it "looks like an X-ACTO knife made out of needles," — that puts pigment into the skin, but doesn't go as deep as a normal tattoo would. It's also semi-permanent. The client's micro-bladed brows should last between one and three years; 18 months is typical for most of people. The procedure differs depending where ones go's. As always, when it comes to any sort of elective procedure on the face, vet the micro-blading expert. An experienced and legit technician should have previous photos of his/her work available for one to look at.
http://shopamara.com/

The cool thing about micro-blading that one can learn from Taryn Korinne is that one can have zero brows, blonde ultra-faint brows, have lost brows due to alopecia, or just need a little help filling the arches in — either way, she's got it covered and will create a legit appearance of naturally full brows. She even creates a custom color that matches the natural brow color and uses several shades, so they look multidimensional and natural!

What exactly is Brow Sculpting? "Brow sculpting is the term given to a semi-permanent, textured eyebrow gel/skin paint that is applied to the skin to define and fill in eyebrows," explains Urla Duncan, President of Winks Eyelash Boutique in Toronto. "It's a great alternative to filling in your brows daily."
http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2016/01/21/eyebrow-tinting-sculpting_n_9038396.html

If the brow bone is barren and a good portion of the morning is dedicated to create or filling in the brows, or one may have considered permanent makeup, then one may be in luck. Brow sculpting is now a thing. Threading salons across the US are increasingly beginning to invest in the newest brow craze that creates and sculpts brows using a 3D sculpting gel that mimics the appearance of hair. Each brow takes thirty minutes and the results are waterproof, smudge-proof—life-proof—brows that won't require any retouching until the next appointment three weeks later.

What's the procedure like? The sculpting procedure begins with an analysis of the brows to determine the best shape for the eye. After trimming and tweezing, the brows are filled in with a powder as a means to outline the desired shape. Duncan tells us that sculpting gel is "custom mixed to ensure the perfect shade." Using a fine applicator, the gel is then applied directly to skin in hair like strokes, giving off a 3D effect. "They last for weeks and fade gradually. This service is done to fill in gaps and give the illusion of hair where there isn't any," Duncan says. "It is a great way to add density and definition for beautiful brows without the daily fuss."
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_pJ369plWg&feature=youtu.be

Want to intensify 'the sculpt?' Two words: eyebrow extensions. For that 4D look with texture, eyebrow extensions can be added on to the sculpting treatment. Conclusion: if one wants a darker, more drastic brow, go for the brow tinting. If one wants a more natural, textured brow, go for the gel sculpting.

Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different Human hair growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic area called bikini waxing, legs, arms, back, abdomen, knuckles and feet.

1- Strip waxing (soft wax) is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is applied and pressed firmly; the strip adheres to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma to the skin. This removes both the wax along with the hair.
http://www.amaradayspa.com/medical/

2- Strip-less wax (as opposed to strip wax), also referred to as hard wax, is applied somewhat thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a therapist without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have Sensitive skin. Strip-less wax does not adhere to the skin as much as strip wax does, thus making it a good option for sensitive skin as finer hairs are more easily removed because the hard wax encapsulates the hair as it hardens. The strip-less waxing method can also be less painful.

There are many benefits to waxing versus other forms of hair removal. It is an effective method to remove large amounts of hair at one time. It is a long-lasting method. Hair in waxed areas will not grow back for two to eight weeks. When hair is shaved or removed by Chemical depilatory cream, the hair is removed at the surface rather than the hair root. Within a few days, the hair can be seen at the surface. There are drawbacks of waxing: Waxing can be painful when the strip is removed from the skin. Although the pain is not long-lasting, it can be intense, particularly in sensitive areas. Another drawback to waxing is the expense: waxing should be performed by

Hi, this is Leigh, owner of Amara. I would love to take you through the journey of my story. 

I have always had a passion for helping, serving and making people feel beautiful.  I attended Esthetics school and graduated in January of 2000. I quickly realized that there weren't many options for pursuing my passions in the small town that I lived in.  I was fortunate to get hired at a small place in Orem, Utah. I worked day in and day out to build my clientele and build relationships with everyone I came in contact with because I just love people. I was fortunate enough to work closely with our owners and managed the salon for close to five years. I am forever grateful for the opportunities, challenges, and mistakes that I was allowed to make and learn from in the beginning of my career. 

In 2005, my new husband Tyler and I bought a small home and turned the basement into "Amara Day Spa."  In the beginning, it was just me and my amazing sister Tessa, who was apprenticing under me. I hoped and prayed that my guests would come and see me at our new humble location.  I was so proud that from the minute we opened, people came.

I've always known in my heart that it doesn't matter where you are located, if you have expensive equipment, or even the latest and greatest treatment.  What matters is that the guest is "WOW-ed" each time they come and that they feel better about themselves when they leave.  I believe that is why we continued to grow, so much so that in 2007 we built a home in Lindon, Utah, and dedicated the entire basement to Amara.  We did spa services, massages, and injectables and soon grew out of that location.

My husband and I took a leap of faith in 2009 and bought a 3,000 square foot location in Orem.  We invested hundreds of thousands of dollars of our own money, and I am forever grateful for a husband that has always supported my dreams and has been by my side every step of the way.  We expanded services and hired 30 staff members to open with and thankfully they have worked with us through thick and thin.  In 2012, we needed to expand again.  We were able to purchase another 3,000 square feet right next to us and began building again.  We did all of this without shutting down for one day.  In 2016, we will open our second location in Lehi, Utah. 

My goal is to continue to mentor others, help them succeed in the game of life, and create their own happiness in all they do. -Leigh Bennett, Owner

10- Final application of toner, serums, moisturizer and sunscreen if it's daytime.

What's a Chemical Treatment and Why Do I Need Them? What is Dermabrasion? Dermabrasion is a procedure that uses a wire brush or a diamond wheel with rough edges to remove and level the upper layer of skin. The treated area heals, allowing new skin to grow in its place. It often is used for facial procedures.

What should first be done before considering dermabrasion? Patients should understand that dermabrasion injures the skin and must be prepared with how they will look immediately after treatment and during the healing process. Post-procedure instructions must be carefully followed to avoid infection and ensure proper healing. It's also important to have realistic treatment expectations. Typically a 50 percent improvement in the skin condition is considered a good result. It may take several weeks or months for full results to become apparent.

When is dermabrasion appropriate? Dermabrasion can be used to treat: Superficial acne scars, Age/Brown spots, Crow's feet, Scars, Skin growths, Skin lesions, Sun-damaged skin, and Wrinkles.

Who is not a candidate for dermabrasion? Patients are not good candidates if they have: Used isotretinoin to treat acne within the last six to 12 months, Recently had a facelift or brow-lift, A history of keloid or hypertrophic scarring, An active herpes infection or other skin infection, Skin that is overly sensitive to cold, A skin, blood or immune disorder that could make healing more difficult.

Is dermabrasion painful? Dermabrasion can be uncomfortable, so local anesthetics are used to numb the skin before treatment. A freezing spray may also be used to numb and prepare the treated area. For larger treatments, such as full facials, a general anesthesia may be used. Ice packs may also be used during the procedure. After treatment most patients report little or no pain, though some require pain relievers as well as a corticosteroid for swelling.
http://www.amaradayspa.com/day-spa/#wax

What are the potential complications of dermabrasion? Uneven changes in skin color, Darkening of the skin, usually caused by sun exposure in the days and months following surgery, Swelling, Scarring, and Infection.

What can I expect after having had dermabrasion? Patients will be required to follow a post-procedure regimen that includes: Cleansing the skin several times a day to avoid infection and remove crusting, Changing the ointment or dressing on the wound to keep the area moist and promote healing, Avoiding sun exposure and, after healing, using a daily sunscreen, Possibly taking an antiviral drug to prevent infection, Several follow-up visits to monitor your skin's healing and to identify and treat early signs of infection or other complications.

Eyebrow trends come and go, from thin and sharp to bold and bushy a la Cara Delevingne and basically every other model who's been hot in the past few years. But the latest trend is micro-blading, a new tattoo technique that fills brows out or reshapes them by drawing on tiny lines that look like individual hairs.

Micro-blading is a way of semi-permanent make-up, where through manual process of inserting pigment into the upper layers of skin we create the desired fullness and shape of the eyebrows. The effects last up to 12 months after which the pigment fades leaving the skin and your natural brows exactly as they were. Result looks natural and flawless as hair effect is recreated on the skin.

Nothing tells the story of ones face more than the eyebrows do. Eyebrows are the window to the soul. If one was born with bad eyebrows, or if they are still suffering from the aftermath of a waxing incident in 2004, then one probably find eyebrows to be a 'point of stress' for them. One must wake up every morning and draw them on with an eyebrow pencil, or fill them in with a pomade or powder. And if one does neither of those things and just wakes up, says "crap" and walks out the door, then they are a brave, brave person. It's called micro-blading.

When one has tried every pencil, powder, pigment, gel, stencil, ancient tribal chant, prayer, etc. and brows still are weak, it's time to look at a more permanent solution to thin or bad brows. Micro-blading is a semi-permanent brow tattoo procedure thatis life changing. Don't let the concept of a tattoo on the face scare. Unlike a regular tattoo, micro-blading is a form of tattooing where a trained artist uses a handheld tool instead of a machine. They draw hair-like strokes to mimic what the brows would look like if they were fuller. The result, if done right, looks natural and will be the only tattoo to never regret getting.

Micro-blading is done with a hand-held tool — it "looks like an X-ACTO knife made out of needles," — that puts pigment into the skin, but doesn't go as deep as a normal tattoo would. It's also semi-permanent. The client's micro-bladed brows should last between one and three years; 18 months is typical for most of people. The procedure differs depending where ones go's. As always, when it comes to any sort of elective procedure on the face, vet the micro-blading expert. An experienced and legit technician should have previous photos of his/her work available for one to look at.
http://shopamara.com/

The cool thing about micro-blading that one can learn from Taryn Korinne is that one can have zero brows, blonde ultra-faint brows, have lost brows due to alopecia, or just need a little help filling the arches in — either way, she's got it covered and will create a legit appearance of naturally full brows. She even creates a custom color that matches the natural brow color and uses several shades, so they look multidimensional and natural!

What exactly is Brow Sculpting? "Brow sculpting is the term given to a semi-permanent, textured eyebrow gel/skin paint that is applied to the skin to define and fill in eyebrows," explains Urla Duncan, President of Winks Eyelash Boutique in Toronto. "It's a great alternative to filling in your brows daily."
http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2016/01/21/eyebrow-tinting-sculpting_n_9038396.html

If the brow bone is barren and a good portion of the morning is dedicated to create or filling in the brows, or one may have considered permanent makeup, then one may be in luck. Brow sculpting is now a thing. Threading salons across the US are increasingly beginning to invest in the newest brow craze that creates and sculpts brows using a 3D sculpting gel that mimics the appearance of hair. Each brow takes thirty minutes and the results are waterproof, smudge-proof—life-proof—brows that won't require any retouching until the next appointment three weeks later.

What's the procedure like? The sculpting procedure begins with an analysis of the brows to determine the best shape for the eye. After trimming and tweezing, the brows are filled in with a powder as a means to outline the desired shape. Duncan tells us that sculpting gel is "custom mixed to ensure the perfect shade." Using a fine applicator, the gel is then applied directly to skin in hair like strokes, giving off a 3D effect. "They last for weeks and fade gradually. This service is done to fill in gaps and give the illusion of hair where there isn't any," Duncan says. "It is a great way to add density and definition for beautiful brows without the daily fuss."
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_pJ369plWg&feature=youtu.be

Want to intensify 'the sculpt?' Two words: eyebrow extensions. For that 4D look with texture, eyebrow extensions can be added on to the sculpting treatment. Conclusion: if one wants a darker, more drastic brow, go for the brow tinting. If one wants a more natural, textured brow, go for the gel sculpting.

Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different Human hair growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic area called bikini waxing, legs, arms, back, abdomen, knuckles and feet.

1- Strip waxing (soft wax) is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is applied and pressed firmly; the strip adheres to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma to the skin. This removes both the wax along with the hair.

2- Strip-less wax (as opposed to strip wax), also referred to as hard wax, is applied somewhat thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a therapist without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have Sensitive skin. Strip-less wax does not adhere to the skin as much as strip wax does, thus making it a good option for sensitive skin as finer hairs are more easily removed because the hard wax encapsulates the hair as it hardens. The strip-less waxing method can also be less painful.

There are many benefits to waxing versus other forms of hair removal. It is an effective method to remove large amounts of hair at one time. It is a long-lasting method. Hair in waxed areas will not grow back for two to eight weeks. When hair is shaved or removed by Chemical depilatory cream, the hair is removed at the surface rather than the hair root. Within a few days, the hair can be seen at the surface. There are drawbacks of waxing: Waxing can be painful when the strip is removed from the skin. Although the pain is not long-lasting, it can be intense, particularly in sensitive areas. Another drawback to waxing is the expense: waxing should be performed by

Hi, this is Leigh, owner of Amara. I would love to take you through the journey of my story. 

I have always had a passion for helping, serving and making people feel beautiful.  I attended Esthetics school and graduated in January of 2000. I quickly realized that there weren't many options for pursuing my passions in the small town that I lived in.  I was fortunate to get hired at a small place in Orem, Utah. I worked day in and day out to build my clientele and build relationships with everyone I came in contact with because I just love people. I was fortunate enough to work closely with our owners and managed the salon for close to five years. I am forever grateful for the opportunities, challenges, and mistakes that I was allowed to make and learn from in the beginning of my career. 

In 2005, my new husband Tyler and I bought a small home and turned the basement into "Amara Day Spa."  In the beginning, it was just me and my amazing sister Tessa, who was apprenticing under me. I hoped and prayed that my guests would come and see me at our new humble location.  I was so proud that from the minute we opened, people came.

I've always known in my heart that it doesn't matter where you are located, if you have expensive equipment, or even the latest and greatest treatment.  What matters is that the guest is "WOW-ed" each time they come and that they feel better about themselves when they leave.  I believe that is why we continued to grow, so much so that in 2007 we built a home in Lindon, Utah, and dedicated the entire basement to Amara.  We did spa services, massages, and injectables and soon grew out of that location.

My husband and I took a leap of faith in 2009 and bought a 3,000 square foot location in Orem.  We invested hundreds of thousands of dollars of our own money, and I am forever grateful for a husband that has always supported my dreams and has been by my side every step of the way.  We expanded services and hired 30 staff members to open with and thankfully they have worked with us through thick and thin.  In 2012, we needed to expand again.  We were able to purchase another 3,000 square feet right next to us and began building again.  We did all of this without shutting down for one day.  In 2016, we will open our second location in Lehi, Utah. 

My goal is to continue to mentor others, help them succeed in the game of life, and create their own happiness in all they do. -Leigh Bennett, Owner

          Life is Nothin' but a Dream, so Peaceful and Serene, Unless You're Bein' Evil, then You're on Tenryu's Team   
Genichiro Tenryu & Yoshinari Ogawa v Jumbo Tsuruta & Kenta Kobashi (All Japan, 8/19/89) - GOOD

I never knew Tenryu and Ogawa ever teamed together. Ogawa wasn't an obnoxious wee prick yet so they weren't quite the pair of assholes they'd be a decade later, but if nothing else it's cool that it actually happened. As you'd expect, this is mostly about Jumbo/Tenryu, but that was never a bad thing in '89. They start out working some basic holds, but they hit each other real hard and that leads to them dropping the kneebars in favour of going toe to toe. Their exchanges were always on that cusp of breaking down into a brawl, so even if the matwork wasn't great it at least had an edge to it. Jumbo tags out a couple times and Tenryu tells him to man up and get back in, so Jumbo obliges and Kobashi has to wait a little longer for his turn. Kobashi and Ogawa are super raw at this point and most of what they do looks pretty ugly, but they try hard and I don't have any problem with young guys overreaching a bit. Their interactions with the opposing Big Dog were great. You had Ogawa stepping to Jumbo and bloodying his nose so Jumbo would flatten him with nasty forearms. Kobashi would go at Tenryu and Tenryu would just waste him with upward angle chops right to the throat. Ogawa v Kobashi was the weak point (understandably), but there was this amazing spot where Tenryu back body dropped Ogawa right onto Kobashi's face. This was eleven minutes long and it had plenty of neat stuff.


Complete & Accurate Tenryu
          UWFi 'MOVING ON V' (8/24/91)   
We got another kickboxing bout to start the show. Ohe was back again and from what I caught he won pretty handily on points. I was doing stuff for work at the same time so I don't know who the opponent was. We'll move on.


Kiyoshi Tamura v Yuko Miyato 

Yeah, this was good. Miyato isn't a dynamo on the mat, but this is the best he's looked and it's no coincidence that it's against Tamura. Again, Tamura's relentlessness just forces opponents to step up. You try and sleepwalk your way through something and he'll grab a heel hook or an armbar or a choke and it's on you to get out of it. The speed at which he does it continues to be super impressive as well. There's been a bit of a theme running through the last few Tamura matches that his kryptonite is getting hit in the midriff, and it cost him six points in quick succession again here. Miyato is a better striker than grappler so his kicks to the body definitely look like they'd leave someone winded. Tamura was like a dog with a bone when he was going for that choke at the end. Solid bout.


Gary Albright v Yoji Anjoh

Albright's UWFi debut. He didn't look like the wrecking ball he did in the 1/92 tag, but he still threw Anjoh around in nasty fashion and barreled into him with big forearms. I guess Anjoh's job was to go out and make Gary look legit, and I suppose he did that well enough, but he also got to do more offensively than I'd have thought. Albright is impatient and tells Anjoh to bring it, so when Anjoh forces him into a rope break he tells Gary that maybe he's the one who needs to bring it. Cocky Anjoh is the best. Anjoh lands a few kicks, some of them pretty flush, but for the most part Albright shrugs them off and moves to get in close. When he does you know what to expect, and sure enough Anjoh lands awkwardly on some big suplexes. If I was him I'd have taken the L after the first German that put me on my neck.


Nobuhiko Takada & Billy Scott v Kazuo Yamazaki & Tatsuo Nakano

Is Billy Scott one of the lost great American shoot style workers? Probably not, but he was solid again here. His wrestling is fairly strong and his takedowns look really good, and the crowd definitely buy into him because he got a few 'Billy' chants at points. He and Nakano got a little chippy now and than with elbows and breaking late, but it never devolved into anything. Nakano doesn't like anyone and he was pretty surly in this. Takada caught him with a few nasty knees and palm strikes but Nakano just put his head down and motored on. Yamazaki/Takada was the money match up and it delivered on the feet. There was one bit where Yamazaki threw a roundhouse to the gut and Takada crumpled in a heap. Later, Yamazaki caught him with a rolling kick to the side of the head and Takada just flopped into the corner looking into space. That's one of Takada's main strengths, to me. When he gets caught with a big shot he makes it look like it was a big fucking shot. At half an hour this might be a bit long in the tooth, but I didn't think there was too much fat and everybody at least pulled their weight.
          Whiskey & Wrestling 500!   
500 posts! I did a W&W 400 entry for the 400th post, so I'm keeping up traditions for this, the 500th post, six and a half years after I started this blog. Six and a half years! That's longer than my entire high school life! And they thought I wouldn't amount to anything. Here's some humble pie to you, Mr. Campbell, ya baldy wee prick. Never doubt this boozehound!

Like with the 400th post, here are four of my favourite matches of all time.


'Macho King' Randy Savage v Ultimate Warrior (Career Ending Match) (WWF Wrestlemania VII, 3/24/91)

One of the best pieces of melodramatic pro-wrestling soap opera nonsense ever done, from pre-match to post-match and everything in between. This just feels like a huge deal from the very start. Warrior eschewing his usual sprint to the ring for a deliberate walk, the tentative beginning, the crowd heat -- it's big time. Savage was amazing in this, to the point where it feels like one of the best performances ever in a WWF ring. You know he's responsible for the layout, which was great, but it was everything else he did that ruled, all the little touches and movements. His reactions to Warrior shrugging off blows, spitting on him out of belligerence, the way he bides his time and capitalises on Sherri's interference. He fought like a man whose career was really on the line, even trying the throat across the barricade spot that he used to injure Steamboat way back, which was an awesome callback. Warrior isn't great or anything, but I thought he held up his end fine, even if he was still only the third best participant in the match. I loved the bit where he caught Savage coming off the top and just dismissively stood him up and slapped him. It was one of those matches where even he, this nutcase from another universe who talks to space deities, saw the gravity of the situation. Warrior kicking out of the multiple elbow drops annoys some people and I get that, but the way it happened here didn't bother me if for no reason other than it led to wild beady-eyed Randy Savage facial expressions. Warrior making his comeback and hitting the gorilla press and big splash...only for Savage to kick out; it was like your modern day WWE epic, except fresh and organic. Plus that leads to Warrior asking Kang and Kodos for guidance, threatening to walk out because his gods have abandoned him in his greatest moment of need, and that is legit one of my favourite spots in any match ever. It's completely ridiculous and goofy as anything, but I love it. I also loved how Savage jumping him only served to piss Warrior off, snapping him out of his trance and giving him the sign he needed. His gods hadn't left him. It was just their way of telling him his job wasn't done yet. Trial by adversity! Or, you know, whatever. AND I've always loved the finish. It's a moment that's stuck with me ever since I was a kid. I remember watching it and just being flabbergasted that Warrior was so casual about it. The way he hits the shoulder tackles, Savage completely dead on his feet, one foot on the chest, arms raised, back on top of the mountain. Then of course there's the post-match, which has one of the most iconic moments in WWF history. Sherri, who was a phenomenal she-devil all match, puts the boots to Savage while even Heenan thinks it's all a bit too much ("Sherri, come on, he tried his best!"). All the stuff with Elizabeth, grown-ass adults weeping in the crowd, it's Vince's perfect vision of sports entertainment. And on this night he nailed it all ends up.


Kerry & Kevin Von Erich v Terry Gordy & Buddy Roberts (Badstreet Match) (2/12/88)

This is what World Class was great at. There was a bunch of tags on the DVDVR Texas set that felt pretty ragged, not necessarily unstructured but certainly more back and forth with frequent momentum swings, rather than your traditional southern style tag in the Rock n Roll Express/Midnight Express vein. It didn't hold me back from liking those matches, but it maybe held me back from loving them. I'm a fan of the traditional southern tag structure, and the World Class take on it was a little messy. Sometimes that worked, though. Throw a couple Von Erichs in with some Freebirds and give them a leather belt, something special was gonna happen. World Class excelled at the ten minute bar fight. You knew straight away this was gonna be wild because Kevin was actually wearing boots for a change. He kept them on for about five minutes before taking them off and hitting people with them. Gordy was also rocking gigantic makeshift kneepads that looked like things a carpet fitter would wear. This was one of my favourite Gordy performances because he worked like a big surly bastard and just smashed guys to bits. He really walloped Kerry with a chair, suplexed him on the floor and generally wasn't in any mood to let the Von Erichs take over the match (as was their wont). There was this great bit where he hit a piledriver on Kevin and sat there cackling like a maniac afterwards. Kevin obviously potatoed everybody and whipped them with belts and bonked them with cowboy boots. At one point he nailed Gordy in the head with a belt buckle and you could tell by Gordy's reaction ("oh, motherFUCKER!") that it stung. Finish isn't great, but if you're gonna throw out a Badtreet match for being too out of control then I suppose this ticked all the boxes.


Pentagon, Blue Panther, Psicosis & Fuerza Guerrera v Octagon, Rey Misterio Jr., El Hijo del Santo & La Parka (AAA, 6/18/95)

It's been ages since I've watched any AAA trios (or 8-man tags). It was through AAA that I first started getting into lucha, with things like the Gringos Locos/Santo feud, Rey/Psicosis and Rey/Juventud. I guess it's pretty cliche now, but I was familiar with those guys, so like a lot of people at the time they were my gateway. There isn't a ton of AAA I'd have much interest in re-watching now, but there's some stuff I've watched recently enough to know it's still for me. I'd like to watch the 3/95 trios again to see how this compares with it, but this still feels like one of the best matches AAA ever had. The tecnicos were unstoppable in that primera. Park's footwork and preening had Panther tangled up in the ropes and Fuerza scrambling to keep up. Santito took on all comers at once and made them all look foolish, especially Fuerza who we know was never, ever above playing the fool. Rey was a jumping bean. Octagon...well, Octagon mostly kept out the way, but when he did take centre stage he never balked. You don't get much matwork in a 90s AAA trios/8-man; it was a promotion having a red hot run built on flash and highspots from Pena's creations. I guess that's why a lot of it doesn't hold up quite so well today, now that we're at the point where the highspots have been topped by things more audacious, but sometimes you get a match where everything just clicks and it's not the highspots themselves that draw you in. This had some real bite to it, so all the tecnicos' flash in the first caida felt like it was intended to either humiliate or hurt. Rey Jr. wasn't just running guys in circles for the sake of it, he was doing it to let them know they couldn't keep up. The rudos couldn't handle him and Rey was letting everyone know it. "The spots had substance" is one of those blanket terms you could apply to anything to explain why it made sense (I'm positive I've used that line plenty of times before myself), but this really felt like it had more to it than your standard AAA trios. You had the highspots, you had the flash, but it was the way they held it all together with the animosity that elevated it. That animosity of course led to the rudo beatdown, because there was only ever going to be so long before they'd had enough. There aren't many better beatdowns in a AAA trios than this. Psicosis was determined to cave Santo's skull in with a chair, Fuerza was fouling everyone he could and Park was made to pay big time for the early grandstanding. And when Panther finally got his hands on Misterio, little Rey couldn't bounce away from that ass beating. When the tecnicos make their comeback we get one of the best Santo rampages you'll ever see. He went fucking berserk on Psicosis, hammering him with a chair then wrapping it around his head and throwing him into the post. The cherry on top was the dive train, with Psicosis' utterly insane tope suicida being the pick of the bunch. If you had me come up with an all time AAA top 10 this would definitely be there.


Yoshiaki Fujiwara v Super Tiger (UWF, 9/11/85)

I don't remember if this was their best match together, but all of them were great so I guess it doesn't really matter. I did remember Fujiwara being incredible in the whole series, and yeah, he was incredible in this match. I wouldn't necessarily say it was a carry job, but Sayama was there to kick hard and full force kneedrop Fujiwara in the head. Other than that you watch this for the Fujiwara. Their dynamic was always pure striker v grappler. That was the thread running through all of their bouts. Fujiwara doesn't want to stand up with Sayama, and why would he when he's the grandmaster of submissions? Sayama has quick feet and isn't in Fujiwara's league on the deck, so he has no reason to want to take it there. It's the simplest shoot style dynamic you can get (behind the Ikeda/Ishikawa "smash each other in the brain until we forget basic motor skills" dynamic, I guess). Fujiwara does a few feints early on and the crowd picks up on this by chuckling, which I love because it's Fujiwara being a carny and everyone appreciates that. He then takes Sayama down and completely dominates him. Sayama cannot do a thing and Fujiwara knows it. The half crab is one of those dogshit early shoot style holds that would often bring a match to a halt, but watch Fujiwara work it in this match to completely opposite effect. He works the kneebar initially, transitions into the crab, uses his own foot to kick Sayama's other leg out as he's trying to alleviate pressure. He leans back on it and MAKES Sayama try and fight out. When they go back to the kneebar - another hold that could be lifeless - Fujiwara makes a point of covering his face with his free hand because he knows Tiger will try and kick him to get free. Sure enough Tiger tries to heel him in the face, but Fujiwara has it scouted. It's that attention to detail that makes him the king. After about ten minutes of this Sayama finally scores a knockdown, then hits a jumping kneedrop with his entire body weight coming down on Fujiwara's head. When Fujiwara gets back up he forces Sayama into the corner and motherfucking cracks him with a closed fist, and things only escalate from there. Sayama's kicks are thrown with more venom and when they connect Fujiwara is feeling them. He isn't catching them like he was at the start, they're getting through his defence and dropping him for 8 and 9 counts. Fujiwara throws headbutts and Sayama rubs his head and looks at Fujiwara like he would love nothing more than to cave his face in. Finish is typical Fujiwara. You let your guard down for one second, leave yourself open even a little, he'll make you pay. Nobody is better at the out-of-nowhere submission than Fujiwara. This was a master at work and I now feel like I need to watch this entire series all over again.


So there we have it. Whiskey & Wrestling's 500th post. Here's to five hunner more!
          RONALD ROWELL JOANN ROWELL v. JEFFREY STECKER HONEY LOCUST FARMS LLC   
(US 3rd Circuit) - No. 16-3153

          Superhero Sidekicks in Bondage   
Pulp magazine covers often featured a woman drawn in the style collectors called GGA or Good Girl Art, tied to something and about to be murdered or violated by a drooling villain, while the hero rushes to the rescue.  But in superhero comics of the 1940s, the teenage sidekick was either tied next to the GGA woman, or else tied up all alone, and while GBA is not an official comic book term, his muscles were displayed quite as prominently as her breasts, providing hours of fun and excitement for gay kids of the pre-Boomer generation.


The Human Torch’s sidekick Toro, nearly-naked, muscles straining, chest heaving, is tied spread-eagle in the path of a tank , tied to the barrel of a cannon, or being lowered into a buzz-saw machine.


 3 of the first 10 covers of Detective Comics after the introduction of Robin, and nine of the first thirty, feature a surprisingly fit Boy Wonder tied up and about to stabbed, shot, drowned, or otherwise violated, while Batman rushes to the rescue.

As World War II progressed, many other superhero comics followed suit. The magazine racks of every drugstore were overflowing with images of superheroes rushing to the rescue of bound-and-threatened GBA sidekicks.

Captain America rescues Bucky in eight of the first ten covers of his comic book, and fully half of the first thirty.  Bucky is often (but not always) drawn as a muscular teenager, and his green-skinned, fairy-tale ogre captors have devised much more creative methods of execution than Robin’s.  He is strapped to an operating table next to a monster, while a leering Nazi doctor prepares an injection; mummified and threatened with an Iron Maiden.





He is hanging from his wrists and threatened by hot coals; in a cemetery, about to be buried alive; thrown overboard with a 500-pound weight around his neck; strapped to a table while a bed of spikes lowers onto him.











Roy the Super Boy, his massive chest jutting out of his red-and-white striped shirt, is tied to a rocket about to be launched into space, or about to be doused with nitroglycerin and ignited, while his superhero, the Wizard, rushes to the rescue.


Dusty the Boy Detective, in a skin-tight blue costume, is about to be stabbed, or tied to a runaway jeep.

The Black Terror's sidekick Tim is tied up, muscles straining in GBA form, about to be run over by a jeep, castrated by a buzzsaw, executed by a Nazi firing squad, or used for archery practice by a weird cult.



Comic books and pulps were not alone in featuring attractive people tied to things and about to be violated in sexually symbolic ways. Men were rescuing women everywhere, in order to create suspense and clarify the emotional investment of rescuer and rescued, who finally realize how much they care for each other.  The woman generally reacts to the narrow escape by melting into the man’s arms for a fade-out kiss.

But superhero comics presented boy instead of girl bondage threats, identifying the teen sidekick as an alternative to the spunky girl-reporter as an object of desire. The comic book superhero and sidekick walked into the sunset together through the War and for several years afterwards, but by the 1950s, Robin, Buddy, and Bucky had surrendered to girl-craziness or retired.

          Sterling Silver Pencil or Pen Charm School Teacher Writer 3D Solid 925 by jewelbecharmed   

3.95 USD

This sterling silver charm is in the shape of a pencil or pen. It would be a fun gift idea for a teacher, writer, artist, or anyone else who uses these writing implements in their work or hobby! The charm is solid and three-dimensional and it measures approximately 5mm tall and 21mm wide. This listing contains multiple photos and a detailed description (keep scrolling down for additional information!) If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Material: solid .925 sterling silver
Size (mm): 5mm tall and 21mm wide
Size (inches): just under 3/16" tall and a little less than 7/8" wide
Made in the USA

If you're looking for charms for a teacher, I carry a variety in my store:
www.etsy.com/shop/jewelbecharmed/search?search_query=teacher

Please note that the charm measurements do not include the length of any removable attachments. These will vary some, but a jump ring or split ring would add about 4mm (1/8") onto the overall length, a lobster clasp about 10mm (3/8"), and a large hole bead about 13mm (1/2").

---------------------------

Pick Clasp / Closure:
Select an attachment to go on this charm from the options provided. All are solid .925 sterling silver. If you're not sure which one you need, choose the jump ring. To see samples of the different attachments offered, please refer to the last photo in this listing.

JUMP RING (most popular): slide your charm onto a necklace chain or attach it to a traditional chain style charm bracelet with this option. A jump ring can be opened and closed with pliers. While you don't have to, you could have a jeweler permanently solder the jump ring shut after it's on your bracelet for maximum security. I use a sturdy 18 or 19 gauge jump ring, the 18 whenever possible and the 19 on charms with smaller loops (most common with miniature charms).

SPLIT RING: some people prefer a split ring when attaching a charm to a bracelet. A split ring is similar to a jump ring, but has a double loop like a keychain. I use a 6mm split ring on all charms that will fit one, and smaller rings when necessary.

LOBSTER CLASP: people who like to change their charms frequently may prefer this option, as you can quickly clip it on and off your jewelry. I use a small 9mm lobster clasp for these. As this is a smaller clasp, it will fit on many traditional chain style bracelets, but not on thick or European style chains.

PENDANT BAIL: adding a pendant bail to a charm gives it a nice, finished look if you intend to use the charm as a pendant on a necklace. A charm with a pendant bail attached will arrive ready to slide on a chain for a unique necklace! The bail (see example #6 in the last photo above) is a little less than 10mm tall and 4mm wide, the opening is about 2mm x 4mm, so it will fit on chains or cords measuring less than 2mm wide. The pendant bail may vary slightly from the one shown. Please note that miniature charms may have a miniature pendant bail attached instead (#5 in the photo above), which measures a bit smaller than the other bail but has a similar sized opening.

LARGE HOLE BEAD: these are necessary if you wish to add the charm to a European style charm bracelet, the other attachment options will not work with those. The bead has an inner diameter just under 6mm across and will fit on popular brands of European style bracelets and thicker chains or cord. You can pick the bead style you want from the following options, just leave me a note when you checkout with your choice (pictures of these can be found in the last photo above). If you don't indicate a preference, I will pick one for you.
A = Narrow plain
B = Narrow beaded
C = Curved inwards
D = Beaded (most popular)
E = Spiral
F = Textured inner band
G = Banded
H = Rectangles with square cutouts
I = Triangles with cutouts
J = Southwestern style cutout
K = Arrow / arrowhead cutout
L = Squared
M = Plain
N = Dotted

NONE (Add Your Own): no attachment will be added for you. To put the charm on your jewelry, you will need to add your own attachment later, such as a jump ring. The closed loop (usually at the very top) of a charm is permanent and will still be on the charm! If you're not sure what I'm referring to, look at the last picture in this listing. Each of the sample size charms have their permanent closed loop at the top, those will not be removed. In that same picture, you can see how the different attachment options need to be inserted through that loop, and only then can the charm be added to jewelry.

Quantity:
The price listed is for one (1) charm. To view current information on discounts available for larger orders, please refer to my store's Policy page:

Shipping:
Most items from my store, including charms, qualify for flat rate shipping. The shopping cart will automatically combine multiple purchases from my store into one order. My processing time to prepare this item for shipment may vary, please refer to the Shipping & Policies tab on this page for the "Ready to ship in" time frame. If you are in a rush and need a faster processing time than what is shown, please contact me in advance to find out whether an expedited processing time is possible. Once an order has been processed and shipped, standard shipping (USPS First Class mail) averages 2-5 business days for delivery within the U.S. While this timing is accurate for most orders, the U.S. post office does NOT guarantee delivery times for First Class or Priority mail, so neither can I. Due to recent restructuring within the postal system and closures of distribution centers, a small number of First Class and Priority packages have been experiencing shipping delays. If you need your package to arrive in a certain time frame, please consider upgrading your shipping. You may select an alternate shipping method in your shopping cart.

---------------------------

Additional information for international orders:
For international mail (including Canada), first class delivery is usually within 2-4 weeks. Please note that I have no control over whether your country may or may not charge you importation fees, duties or tariffs when they deliver your package and I am not responsible for those. I also will not falsify customs documents, so please do not ask. Expect shipping delays around the holidays! International mail can move very slowly the entire month of December and beyond.

---------------------------

Ordering gifts:
I can mail your purchase directly to the gift recipient if you wish. Leave me a note at checkout telling me it's a gift so I know not to include an invoice. Confirm the shipping address and give me your name or a gift message to include in the box, so the recipient knows who their gift is from! I do not offer gift wrapping services, but can pack your purchase in a little gift bag or paper gift box by request.

Prior to The Katharine, Barnett was the executive chef at Lyon Hall in Arlington, a bustling restaurant in the Clarendon neighborhood, serving a classic French brasserie menu. “I am excited to be joining The Katharine. The unique and iconic space sets the stage for an incredible dining experience,” Barnett said. “Along with my team, I look forward to creating food that lives up this remarkable and historic location. We’ll continue to serve the style and flavors for which The Katharine is known, traditional brasserie items with a local twist, but I’m really looking forward to putting my own stamp on the culinary experiences and rolling out new menu items at The Katharine.” In addition, The Katharine has named Michael Harris as food and beverage director.

          When Water Is More Valuable Than Crops, Farms Can’t Compete With Thirsty Cities   
Few things are more valuable to a farmer in the arid West than irrigation water. Without it, the land turns back into its natural state: dry, dusty plains. If a fast-growing city is your neighbor, then your water holds even more value. Farm families in Western states like California and Colorado are increasingly under pressure to sell their water. It’s been coined “ buy and dry ,” as water is diverted from farm fields and instead used to fill pipes in condos and subdivisions.

          Britain's 'City' minister says mindful of rules banks now facing   
The government is fully aware of the welter of new rules banks face at a time of low interest rates and other challenges, Britain's new financial services minister said on Thursday. Two weeks into the job, Stephen Barclay, a former financial regulator who has worked in banking, struck a conciliatory tone, saying it was very clear that the pace of regulation has not abated. "In government we need to be mindful of the cumulative impact," Barclay told a British Bankers' Association conference. Banks face new rules to prevent money laundering, requiring them to ring-fence their retail arms with their own layer of capital, and opening up the payments services market with new EU rules to boost innovation, Barclay said. He wanted to give banks as much time as possible to implement the new EU rules and said he had asked officials to lay out the regulations before parliament's summer break. The banking sector faces potential upheaval with Britain's departure from the European Union
          Spidey-Sense and Sensibility   

By now audiences know that every Marvel Studios film will end with an after-credits sequence (or five), a bit of connective tissue that links the film you just watched to the wider Marvel metastasis and teases the next not-quite-sequel due in theaters in four to six months. Spider-Man: Homecoming ends with a couple of these, of course. But for all intents and purposes, it starts with two of them, too: a scene set in the aftermath of 2012’s The Avengers and another set along the sidelines of 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Wait—wasn’t this supposed to be a Spider-Man movie?

From the moment it starts, Spider-Man: Homecoming reminds us that Marvel has finally, 15 years after Tobey Maguire first hopped into his red-and-blue PJs, returned one of the world’s most iconic characters into the company of his corporate brethren. Because Sony Pictures holds the film rights to Spider-Man and was already deep into its own franchise when Marvel began charting out its cinematic universe in the late 2000s, Peter Parker never got to share the screen with such partners-in-crime-fighting as Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, Chris Evans’ Captain America, and Chris Hemsworth’s Thor. But after Sony’s second Spider-Man franchise, starring Andrew Garfield, disappointed, the studio threw its lot in with Marvel—and now here we are, in a universe where there are bank robbers in Avengers masks, arms dealers who trade in the leftover superweapons of the Avengers’ battles, frequent appearances from Tony Stark, and the omnipresence of the fast-talking, self-aware tone the first Iron Man movie set nearly a decade ago.

At first, this synergistic charm offensive feels like too much, even if you’ve seen and generally liked the last 15 films (!) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But then we get to know Tom Holland, whose awkward big-hearted Peter Parker could have supported a great Spider-Man movie without all the cross-promotional detritus, and whose performance is spritely enough not to be anchored down by the branding requirements of membership in the MCU. Spider-Man: Homecoming is both a homecoming for the character as well as a movie in which Spider-Man literally goes to homecoming—a fitting re-introduction and an endearingly goofy teen flick.

That the film bursts out of the gate with web-shooters already spraying—to the appropriately upbeat sounds of Spoon, the English Beat, and Peter Parker’s fellow natives of Forest Hills, Queens, the Ramones—has much to do with its decision to dispense with the traditional origin story (spider bite, dead uncle, etc.).* Instead, it takes place a few months after the events of Civil War, in which Tony Stark recruited Spider-Man for a superhero melee and provided him with an upgraded spider-suit. Now Peter can’t get Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau), his Stark-appointed handler, to return his calls, and his biggest sources of anxiety are his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), who doesn’t know that Peter’s main extracurricular activity is stopping minor street crimes, and his classmate Liz (Laura Harrier), on whom he has a major crush. Already an effective friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, Peter desperately wants to be called back up to the majors, and he sees his chance when he stumbles upon a gang of arms dealers, led by a former junk-hauler named Adrian Toomes (a menacing but refreshingly human Michael Keaton) who flies around with deadly robotic wings scrapped from some past superbattle. This is a Spider-Man who wants more great power and more great responsibility—which is why, given the chance, he disables the “training wheels” mode on his suit and ignores Stark’s warning not to mess with superpowered bad guys.

There are, of course, a handful of thrilling set pieces (and one truly gutting twist), including a rescue at the Washington Monument, a fight on the Staten Island Ferry, and a fiery finale in Coney Island. However, they are mostly not moments that call for greatness from Peter but near-disasters of his own making. This Spider-Man has a lot to learn—and despite his good intentions, he’s often too excited and distracted to learn it.

But this film is at its best when it’s having fun at its own expense—there’s an excellent gag about how Peter’s mode of transportation by web-slinging is useless in the low-slung suburbs—or spending time with its likable ensemble, a crew that is notably more charismatic and diverse than the lily-white duds who have populated past Spider-Man franchises. They include Peter’s computer-savvy best friend and aspiring sidekick Ned (Jacob Batalon, annoying until he grows on you), his smart-mouthed academic-decathlon teammate Michelle (Zendaya, acidic and on point), and his smug rival Flash Thompson (Tony Revolori), who together form the foundation of what could be a promising new Spiderverse—a ground-level complement to the ever-expanding grandiosity of Marvel’s superhero constellation.

That Spider-Man must exist in both places—he’ll appear in next summer’s galaxy-colliding Avengers: Infinity War—is in keeping with the comics and no easy feat to pull off. Remember that in the very first issue of The Amazing Spider-Man (following his 1962 debut in the anthology book Amazing Fantasy), Peter Parker tried to join the Fantastic Four. The shared universe of Marvel Comics has always been the backdrop of Spider-Man’s tales, even if his best stories are usually the ones that are walled off from the Hulk, Thor, and all the rest. The contrast between the two realms is important: Geeky, shy, and more or less normal, Spider-Man is supposed to be the character most reflective of his audience, the one who meets them halfway and draws them into Marvel’s larger, stranger world. It is convenient branding that it takes a whole lot of Iron Man for Spider-Man: Homecoming to make that point. But make it, it does.

This wouldn’t work if not for Holland, whose Peter Parker is the kind of self-conscious, quietly exceptional outer-borough teen without whom the entire concept of Spider-Man would sputter. Director Jon Watts gets this, too, and his film has the rude, focused, fist-pumping energy of the Ramones songs that soundtrack it. What would you say if you could sling through Manhattan, bound by neither gravity nor curfew? “Hey, ho, let’s go,” right?

          China Protests U.S. Arms Sale to Taiwan   
China on Friday strongly protested a United States plan to sell $1.4 billion worth of arms to Taiwan and demanded that the deal be canceled. Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said the sale would severely damage China's sovereignty and security interests and run counter to Washington's commitment to a "one-China" policy. ... The US State Department approved the arms sale on Thursday, the first such deal with Taiwan since President Trump took office. ... China considers Taiwan to be part of its territory and has long opposed any arms sales to the self-governing island by foreign entities. It insists on eventual reunification, through force if necessary.

          Uefa cogita adotar teto salarial para jogadores, diz presidente a revista   
LIUBIANA (Reuters) - A Uefa considera seriamente em adotar um teto salarial para os jogadores para ajudar a equilibrar um disparidade cada vez maior no esporte, disse o presidente da entidade que administra o futebol europeu , segundo uma revista eslovena.


  Um teto teria como objetivo estreitar o fosso entre os clubes mais ricos da Europa e os restantes, além de evitar que os grandes times acumulem jogadores em suas folhas de pagamento. "Os clubes mais ricos só estão ficando mais ricos, e a diferença entre eles e o restante está ficando maior", disse Aleksander Ceferin à Mladina, uma revista semanal com sede em Liubliana.


  "No futuro, teremos que cogitar seriamente a possibilidade de limitar os orçamentos dos clubes para os salários dos jogadores", acrescentou, sem especificar um cronograma. Quanto à questão dos esquadrões inchados, ele disse que muitos times de ponta compraram jogadores de que não necessitam "e que acabam não jogando em lugar nenhum". "A adoção de um teto salarial irá obrigar os clubes a serem mais racionais.


Será uma grande batalha, e vencê-la, em minha opinião, representaria uma mudança histórica." A Uefa introduziu em 2012 regulamentos para um Fair Play Financeiro (FFP, na sigla em inglês), concebido para evitar que as equipes gastem mais do que as rendas que geram.


  Mas a entidade suavizou as regras três anos depois para tentar estimular investimentos novos e sustentáveis no futebol de clubes europeus.

          Comment on Is Isis a Moon Goddess or a Sun Goddess? by Bruce Cornet   
Isis and Nepthys are shown kneeling before KaRa, which is the top or head of a djed or spine of Osiris. KaRa is depicted as the Sun disc above upheld arms and the Ankh. The upheld arms were changed to either bulls horns or to the crescent Moon, the symbol you show in the painting on the forehead of the lunar Isis. KaRa means Spirit of God. Why do you use Re (m) instead of Ra (f), and Re-et instead of Ra? KaRa is a feminine word in both Hebrew and Arabic, meaning to call out loud or recite Scripture and to teach Scripture. Kara'a is the root word for Koran. So is Isis KaRa, if Isis can be the Sun disc also?
          Teamwork And Tactics Are The Only Way To Survive This Grim Darkness   

This isn't the boring kind of librarian with glasses and piles of books. More details for the upcoming Warhammer 40k first-person shooter Space Hulk: Deathwing reveal the Librarian squad leader and the complex tactical interplay between squad members.

Deathwing can be played solo (with computer-controlled teammates) or cooperatively, with an emphasis on teamwork. One player assumes the role of a Librarian, the leader who uses psychic abilities and issues commands to his faithful Terminators. Squads will engage in objective-based missions against overwhelming swarms of aliens. Outnumbered and outgunned, each member of the team will have to smartly coordinate use of their specialized loadouts.

Developer Streum On Studio has also implemented a dynamic A.I. system that seems similar to the Director in Left 4 Dead. Play well, and the alien foes will fight back even harder. If the squad is having a tough time, the A.I. will scale back the difficulty in real-time.

Space Hulk: Deathwing releases in 2016 for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. For more, take a look at February's stylish trailer.

          People-Named Places - The Irma, Buffalo Bill's Own Hotel - Cody, WY   


The Place:
The original hotel in the newly founded city of Cody, The Irma Hotel has been, for much of its life, the entertainment centre of the city, receiving guests of Buffalo Bill from around the globe until his death in 1917. Built with forty second floor guest rooms, in 1929 a two storey annex was added to the building, adding 28 more rooms. A second addition was added in 1976-1977.



Though remodelled and updated through the years, The Irma retains much of the Victorian and Wild West charm it initially possessed. Much of the decor remains as it was on its opening day on November 18, 1902, personally hosted by Buffalo Bill himself.



Designed by Alfred Wilderman Woods, a Lincoln, Nebraska church architect, The Irma is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. One of the most photographed locations in Cody is the hotel's famous cherry wood bar, a gift from Queen Victoria. The original tin ceilings remain in some of the public areas. The hotel, incidentally, was named by Buffalo Bill after his youngest daughter, Irma.



A bit of the story of The Irma, from the NRHP Nomination Form, follows.



The Person:
Though volumes have written about her father, Buffalo Bill Cody, Irma Louise (Cody) Garlow lived under considerably less scrutiny.



The youngest daughter of Buffalo Bill Cody (1846 - 1917) & Louisa Maud Frederici Cody (1843 - 1921), Irma was born February 9, 1884, passing away in Park County, WY on October 15, 1918 at the age of 34 as a result of pneumonia, as a complication of influenza during the epidemic of 1918. She was married to Clarence Armstrong Stott, a soldier of Troop G, Tenth United States cavalry, in January of 1903. Following his death in December of 1907 Irma was married to Fredrick Harrison Garlow on March, 16, 1908. Fredrick also died of influenza in 1918, shortly before Irma.



Irma and Frederick had three children, Jane Cody Garlow Keane (1909 - 1987), Fredrick Harrison Garlow (1911 - 1985) and William Cody Garlow (1913 - 1992).





The Irma Hotel



Buffalo Bill, of course, foresaw the need for a hotel, but he thought that need was for something more than just the ordinary cow-town "meals and beds" venture. The same thinking governed as regarded the saloon business. He was content to let someone else provide the first services along all such human need lines. For he had in his mind the plans for a really outstanding hotel, one featuring lobby, bar, dining room and other accommodations that would appeal to the type of worldly visitors he envisioned as coming to Cody in ever-increasing numbers.



The Irma was opened with a gala party on November 18, 1902. It established, on that first day, a reputation as a center of social activity which it has maintained throughout the seventy following years. Colonel Cody sent invitations to a long and diverse list of guests. Those accepting and arriving included, besides a large representation of local citizenry, residents of such distant places as Denver, Chicago, New York and even some from foreign lands. The crowd was cosmopolitan, it included cowboys, Indians and ranchers; soldiers, politicians and industrialists; and showmen, artists and writers.



Buffalo Bill delivered a speech at the banquet ceremonies. He wore white tie and tails and while not all of his ranch country neighbors could find in their wardrobes such formal attire, it is a certainty that they wore the best they owned.



Despite this auspicious opening, or--more likely--foretold by it since as host he bore a heavy burden of expense, it is doubtful if the Irma was ever a financial success during Buffalo Bill's proprietorship. For one thing the town and the surrounding community was not developing as fast as he and the other founders had hoped; for another his own entertaining--of hunting parties and numerous other guests concerned with his various promotions was a too heavy load for the Irma and overtaxed its ability to show a profit.



Buffalo Bill died on January 10, 1917 and one month later, February 10, 1917, the Irma Hotel was foreclosed upon and sold at public sheriff's sale to one Barney Link. However, on December 22, 1917, it was deeded back to Mrs. Cody by Henry A. Luce, administrator of the estate of Barney Link. Louisa M. Cody, widow of Buffalo Bill and owner of the Irma Hotel, died in 1921. On March 12, 1925, the executors of her estate sold the Irma and all of its contents to Henry T. Newell and his wife, Pearl C. Newell, for the sum of $28,000.



Not the least important phrase in the immediate foregoing sentence is "and all of its contents", for the Irma contained many treasures collected by Buffalo Bill. These ran the gamut from simple photographs and Wild West Show posters lining corridor walls to large canvases from the brushes of recognized artists which hung on lobby, dining room and bar room walls.

          News In Brief    

President Francesco Cossiga asked Prime Minister Bettino Craxi to form a new government yesterday, four days after he resigned as prime minister. Politicians expect him to resurrect the same coalition that fell apart over the Achille Lauro hijacking. Hopes for a solution to the latest of many government crises in postwar Italy apparently boosted prices on the Milan Stock Exchange. Shares regained two-thirds of the 6 percent they lost after Mr. Craxi's resignation.

The success of Craxi's effort appeared to depend largely on his talks with Defense Minister Giovanni Spadolini's Republican Party, which precipitated the collapse by withdrawing its three ministers from the Cabinet.

All previous partners but the Republicans have said they would join a new Craxi government. The Republicans set conditions that include closer consultation during times of crisis and clear definition of foreign policy, particularly on the US and the Mideast.

The Republicans quit over the decision to release PLO official Muhammad Abbas, whom the US accuses of masterminding the hijacking.

Mr. Cossiga's decision followed three days of consultations with leaders of the five political parties in the former coalition.

Craxi's aides said they expect the makeup of a new government to emerge by Thursday, when Craxi is to go to New York for a meeting of Western leaders called by President Reagan to discuss his November summit with the Soviet leader, Mikhail S. Gorbachev.

Politicians saw the Republican Party's move as a face-saving gesture in response to widespread criticism by the other coalition partners of its decision to quit. Public opinion polls showed general approval of how the government handled the hijacking.

Antigovernment protesters fired on in downtown Manila

Police yesterday fired on antigovernment demonstrators in downtown Manila who resisted police efforts to disperse them. Hospitals said a 17-year-old demonstrator was killed, and the official news agency said 27 people were wounded. The clash came after 3,000 protesters, mostly from farm groups, demonstrated peacefully in front of the US Embassy and were moving toward a downtown plaza.

The march was organized to protest government economic policies and US support for President Ferdinand E. Marcos.

Mr. Marcos ordered an immediate investigation of the violence, a palace news release said. The National Assembly will also investigating.

16 foes of apartheid plead not guilty in treason case

Sixteen leading opponents of South Africa's apartheid race laws pleaded not guilty yesterday to charges of high treason, which can carry the death penalty. The accused, including senior leaders of the main internal anti-apartheid group, the United Democratic Front, also pleaded not guilty to alternative charges of furthering the aims of unlawful organizations, and terrorism.

Much of the evidence against them is based on speeches they made and songs they asked crowds to sing at meetings.

The trial formally opened in May, but defense lawyers have been battling for months to get more details from the government on how the accused were alleged to have acted treasonably.

Nicaraguan chief accuses US of `state terrorism'

Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega accused the United States yesterday of ``state terrorism'' and said the state of emergency in his country will be suspended when the US stops its ``policy of aggression.'' Nicaragua last week imposed new restrictions on freedom of speech, travel, and assembly, the right to strike, and protection of privacy in the home and the mails.

Supreme Court to adjudge airline policy on handicapped

The Supreme Court set the stage yesterday for an important ruling on rights of handicapped people. The justices said they will review a ruling, challenged by the Reagan administration, that the government must guarantee the rights of handicapped air travelers. A decision is expected by July.

In other cases, the court:

Set the stage for a potentially sweeping ruling over whether property owners are entitled to be compensated when local governments prevent land development.

Agreed to decide what evidence is needed to support search warrants authorizing seizure of allegedly obscene movies.

Agreed to resolve a dispute the government says could force it to guarantee billions of additional dollars in bank-provided credit.

US withholding nuclear data about China, Cranston claims

Sen. Alan Cranston (D) of California, objecting to President Reagan's proposed nuclear cooperation agreement with China, charged yesterday that the administration has ``withheld, suppressed, and covered up information'' about Peking's role in spreading nuclear material. In a Senate floor speech, Senator Cranston said China has had either negotiations or nuclear trade with five ``nuclear outlaw'' nations that are developing atomic weapons programs.

Major tax hike needed to cut federal deficit, Stockman says

A major tax increase is necessary to reduce the federal deficit, preferably a value-added tax, former Budget Director David Stockman said Monday. In the five years of the Reagan presidency, great strides have been made in reducing the growth of federal spending, but the deficit remains a major threat to the nation, Mr. Stockman told the annual convention of the Food Marketing Institute.

US and USSR break off talks on resuming direct air links

The United States and the Soviet Union have broken off negotiations to resume direct air travel between the two countries in a dispute over giving Pan Am, the American carrier, a ``fair share'' of the market, State Department officials said yesterday. No date was set for a resumption, making it virtually impossible that an agreement could be reached in time for President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev to sign at their summit meeting in November.

Sanctions on South Africa satisfy Commonwealth chiefs

Commonwealth leaders who wanted Britain and its former colonies to impose strong sanctions against South Africa said Monday they were satisfied by agreement over a less-stringent compromise package. The 49-nation group, whose meeting ends today, emerged late Sunday from five days of closed-door negotiating with a package of limited economic sanctions.

The accord provides for a nine-point package of immediate sanctions. Most of the measures, such as bans on arms and oil sales, nuclear cooperation, and discouraging cultural and scientific contact, have been enforced by many nations for years.

String of fires quenched in southern California

A week after brush fires cut a swath across more than 100,000 acres of southern California canyons under the lash of Santa Ana winds, the last of more than 20 blazes has been controlled. One man was killed, 21 homes burned, and at least six firefighters injured in the fires that began last Monday, many of them believed ignited by arsonists.

A photograph that appeared on Page 7 of the Monitor's Oct. 9 issue was incorrectly identified as one of Panamanian General Noriega. The original UPI photo was miscaptioned, and the man pictured is Gen. Rub'en Dario Par'edes.

          Impact of the SYNTAX scores I and II in patients with diabetes and multivessel coronary disease: a pooled analysis of patient level data from the SYNTAX, PRECOMBAT, and BEST trials   
Abstract
Aims
To assess the impact of the SYNTAX scores I and II in outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) for patients with diabetes and multivessel disease (MVD).
Methods and results
We performed a patient-level pooled analysis of three large randomized trials of patients with MVD. The impact of coronary anatomic complexity as measured by the SYNTAX score in the differences in outcomes following PCI and CABG was assessed at a median follow-up of 5 years. We also assessed the performance of the SYNTAX II score model in patients with and without diabetes. From the 3280 patients enrolled in the three trials, a total of 1068 (32.6%) had diabetes. The rate of the composite of death, myocardial infarction (MI), or stroke was similar in the PCI and CABG arms in patients with low-intermediate (≤32) SYNTAX scores (15.1% vs. 14.9%, respectively; P = 0.93) while it was significantly higher in the PCI arm in patients with high (≥33) SYNTAX scores (24.5% vs. 13.2%, respectively; P = 0.018). The SYNTAX score II showed good calibration and moderate discrimination ability in patients with diabetes (c-index = 0.68) as well as in those without (c-index = 0.67).
Conclusions
Differences in 5 years outcomes following PCI and CABG for patients with MVD and diabetes were influenced by anatomic complexity as measured by the SYNTAX score. The SYNTAX score II mortality prediction model showed similar performance regardless of the diabetes status.

          Controversial New NRA Recruitment Video Asks Americans To Join To Eliminate Liberal Enemies   

The NRA release new recruitment video telling Americans to defeat enemy liberals.

The NRA have just released a controversial new video in which Americans are asked by conservative radio host Dana Loesch to join the National Rifle Association so that they can help to defeat and eliminate the real enemies of the country – liberals. In the new NRA video there is no rhetoric about making sure that the American citizen’s right to bear arms is upheld.

In fact, the Second Amendment of the US Constitution isn’t brought up at all. Instead, Americans are told that the biggest threat to the country and those that pose the most danger are liberals, and for this reason Americans need to join the NRA as quickly as they possibly can.

          Shower the people...   
I was looking thru pictures the other day, and I came across some that I had taken for a friend and her business.  It was a bright, sun shining, beautiful day. Her and I spent the afternoon working on things for our upcoming festivals. Her wrapping soaps and me cutting out puppet parts while our gaggle of kids spent hours playing together on an amazingly hot PNW summer day. For me, seeing those pictures was a reminder of the last day I felt normal... the next day I would get a phone call that would change my world and change me forever...

I've always known that I wanted to speak at my Gram's funeral. I didn't know how I would ever be able to but I knew that God would hold me up and give me the words when I needed Him to. It's been a year today that we lost one of the greatest women I have ever known. It's been a year of feeling lost and empty at times, but it's also been a year of love and focus... 


If I learned anything from my Gram it was to LOVE in the little things and to LOVE in the big things... to focus on what's important like God, and family and friends... and to love unconditionally...


I've been asked a number of times to share the words that I spoke the day we buried her but I just haven't been able to push send. Those words were the last thing that were just mine for her. But she wouldn't want me to keep it to myself so I am sharing them now, for anyone that knew her to take a moment to remember her and for anyone that didn't get the priveledge of knowing her to at least have a moment to hear about how great she was and to somehow take a little bit of goodness from it and pass it on out into the world....






 Proverbs 31 verse 10-31 reads


[b]Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?
    She is more precious than rubies.
11 Her husband can trust her,
    and she will greatly enrich his life.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.
13 She finds wool and flax
    and busily spins it.
14 She is like a merchant’s ship,
    bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household
    and plan the day’s work for her servant girls.
16 She goes to inspect a field and buys it;
    with her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She is energetic and strong,
    a hard worker.
18 She makes sure her dealings are profitable;
    her lamp burns late into the night.
19 Her hands are busy spinning thread,
    her fingers twisting fiber.
20 She extends a helping hand to the poor
    and opens her arms to the needy.
21 She has no fear of winter for her household,
    for everyone has warm[c] clothes.
22 She makes her own bedspreads.
    She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns.
23 Her husband is well known at the city gates,
    where he sits with the other civic leaders.
24 She makes belted linen garments
    and sashes to sell to the merchants.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity,
    and she laughs without fear of the future.
26 When she speaks, her words are wise,
    and she gives instructions with kindness.
27 She carefully watches everything in her household
    and suffers nothing from laziness.
28 Her children stand and bless her.
    Her husband praises her:
29 “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world,
    but you surpass them all!”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last;
    but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
31 Reward her for all she has done.
    Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.

As a Christian wife and mother, this scripture is acts as much of a blue print for the woman I am aiming to be. It defines the woman or wife of noble character. For a number of years now, I have been studying about this scripture and learning how to be a better wife and mother through the eyes of God. What I didn’t realize until recently was what an amazing example of this I have been living with and loving my entire life. It wasn’t until recently that I got a clearer image in my mind of what that kind of woman would look like and I realized that it was my Gram through and through.

My relationship with my gram hasn’t just been that of some elderly distant figure like most people I know. It’s been more like that of a second mom. When I was little and we lived with Grammy and Papa, I spent my early years at home with Gram while my mom was at work. I didn’t realize until I was older and starting a family of my own, just how important that time in my life was and how lucky I was to have spent it with her instead of in the care of strangers. I think back on how their home was really that house that built me… her and my papa (along with my mom of course) gave me the best foundation for life that I person could ask for…

One of my earliest memories in life, are of her in the kitchen, and really a lot of my memories focused around that room. She was always baking…. Baking bread and cookies and meals for my Papa to take to camp. I can remember her skilled hands rolling out pie dough and making them with such precision that you would have thought they were store bought ( only hers were better!)  She would cut off the excess crust and sprinkle it with cinnamon and sugar before rolling it into a circle and baking it for a special treat for me… it was in those everyday tasks, the tiny insignificant gestures that she showed me how to love, and to feel important. Looking back and being a mom it was probably just a way to get me out from under her feet but to me it made me feel so special.

Gram would get up every morning and make Papa’s lunches and then she would have the oven going with the door propped open and my school clothes draped over a chair so they would be warm in the morning when I came down to get ready for school…. Her love shone thru in the everyday simple details. She was showing me how to love, how to be a great mom and how to dedicate my life to my husband and God.

It is my belief that the greatest testimony to Christ is to live our lives loving each other... my Gram did that with every breath she ever took. The greatest thankyou we can ever give those we love here on earth is to take what they gave us, not in money but in love and pass that on to the next generation. I knew for my entire life that when I grew up, I wanted boy or girl to name my kids after Grammy and Papa. And today, I can look out into the faces of Janie and Rori and know that they are the greatest legacy I could ever leave for a woman that was everything to me.

I didn’t know if I would be able to stand up and speak, but my Papa asked me the other day if I really thought I’d be able to and I told him that I was just  trusting in God to give me a few minutes of calm. A friend of mine mentioned that his grandma was the pattern for his life too and I loved the thought of that…. My gram is that pattern of everything good that I am…. She was with me when my babies were little and I’d kiss  the bottom of their feet like she used to mine, and she is with me in every meal I make and serve on the dishes I now have that were hers…. She will continue to be with me every morning when I get up to make my husband coffee and lunch because she lead by example by being the kind of 31 wife I want to be…. And she will be with me with every dough I kneed or pie I roll out….or orange cookie that someday I will make for my grandchildren…

When most people want to celebrate a person they will gesture to raise a glass…. But I want celebrate by raising a cookie instead because last week heaven got a little bit sweeter….




          Real friends bring tea bags and toilet paper...   
  I feel like I have lived a charmed life in some way, having never dealt with such huge losses in the way I have this last year. That's not to say I've never lost someone close to me because I have, but until last year it was much older family and never someone I've had such close relationships with. That being said, I have been learning a lot about the grieving process and how important it is to have friends that reach out at just the right time.

  Now, I don't want this blog to become something you dread reading. I don't want it to focus strictly on the losses my family has experienced this last couple years but on the other hand I don't want to ignore it either. I would rather be honest about thoughts and feelings and maybe help someone else that is going thru this or can relate. And don't get me wrong, there have been many blessing in our lives too and continues to be, intermixed with the sadness. Not to worry, we are taking notice of the blessings along the way too. But some days, the sadness just seeps in and seems to hover in my immediate area.There is no rhyme or reason and no pushing it away. Sometimes it just means having a blue day and allowing myself to feel it. It's not something that everyone can understand but when they do, it means alot.

Through all the loss and funerals and such, I've also witnessed some incredible kindness and love. I never realized how much it meant to get a sympathy card in the mail. How one little card can let a person know that someone else out there is thinking about them. The first sympathy card I got after my Gram's passing actually had a cloth hanky in it. Crisp and new and o so pretty. I ended up holding it thru most of the visitation and funeral as a reminder that I had people praying for us.



I don't know about you but  I know I never feel like I know exactly what to do when a friend loses someone. Will my meal be good enough? What if I show up and they are busy? I don't want to bother them. How can I help without getting in the way?

 Through all this, I have learned that it doesn't have to be some grand gesture, some perfect act of kindness... it just needs to be SOMETHING.... Even if it isn't the food you would normally eat, when a meal shows up at your door you welcome it in and enjoy it because you know that the person who made it or brought it just wanted to help and lighten your load. When my husband's grandfather passed away, their church family flooded us with food. Some in the form of meals and some that I would consider to be more filler- cases of water, cases of individual orange juice bottles, chips, breakfast foods and yes.... toilet paper! I can remember laughing about the toilet paper... but when you really think about it, it was brilliant! Within a matter of days of his grandfather taking a turn for the worse, my husband's aunt and uncle had 6 extra people staying with them and certainly no time to go stock up on things like toilet paper! All of those little things were lifesavers....

More recently, when my gram passed away, my mom's house was also overwhelmed with food. Friends from all directions brought in lunch meat platters, fried chicken with salad choices, and they all rallied to have a hot meal delivered for about a week after the funeral. Knowing that we had to eat was obvious but if we had had to make it, I really don't know that any of us would have gone to the effort. In times like that, you just go numb...



Some of things that were brought that really stood out to me weren't things I would have ever thought of. We got there (from west coast to east coast) within 3 days and already my mom's friends had her freezer full of frozen waffles/pancakes, her counters covered in breakfast cereals and a huge bag of misc tea bags waiting for those quiet moments that were sure to come. I think her friends probably felt pretty helpless and just went into their own personal cupboards and freezers to find things they thought we could use. I picture them in a hurry to help, arms reaching into their own kitchens so intent on getting to my mom's side.... Isn't that what we are supposed to do? As friends, family and Christians... aren't we supposed to just pull together and help comfort or sometimes hold up each other when we need it? It was all those little things that I think about when I am having a hard day. I took  a picture of the tea bags because at the time, they really struck a cord with me. They were something so simple but so sweet and thoughtful.





On the day of the visitation, it was pretty much a constant sea of friends and family pouring in the doors of that beautiful old funeral home.  Some were friends I hadn't seen in nearly 30 years, while some were friends from my parents' church who had never even met my gram but had traveled great distances to be there for our family. I have never really been one for going to funerals or viewings for people I don't know incredibly well but I have to say, I learned something thru this experience. I've learned that it's really not about the person that died... its about all the people left behind and that's not just including their immediate families. When you think about all the people that are touched by the life of one person.... there are so many people that are left to grieve when they are gone. Going to that visitation, seeing the family and friends that you don't get to see on a regular basis and getting to hear the stories and catch up on their lives too... that is so much a part of the healing process...


I guess what I'm trying to say, is that when you feel the need to reach out to someone who is having a rough day, or to someone that is hurting due to the loss of someone or just because of life that seems to be coming on too strong... follow that urge! If you meant to send a card but didn't and now it seems too late... send it! The healing doesn't happen over night, and many times the darkest hours are going to come long after the funerals are over and the meals/kindness have stopped.

I think one of the biggest problems in our world today is that we are so afraid of what others will think of us. I hope that people will look back on me as someone who cared... even to a fault. If each of us would just reach out to another person today, tomorrow and the next etc... can you imagine how much better our lives would be? That's what I try to remember on the hard days. When I look back on the many people we've lost in the last few years, I see people who cared. I see people who weren't afraid to reach out and help a friend. I see people who are no longer here on earth with us but I also carry the lessons they taught deep in my heart. I think we have all probably had people like that in our lives.... won't you join me in honoring them by doing something nice for someone else? Be the change...

I would love to hear back from anyone reading this. Feel free to share something thoughtful that someone else has done for you or something you did to reach out. It's not about bragging, but in sharing ideas. You'll never know how much your actions might inspire someone else...

     This blanket was a gift given to my Papa from the diner where 
he goes almost daily... 
6 of the workers came as a group to present it to him. 
You could literally feel the love walking in the door for him... 
                                   We should all be lucky enough to have friends like that!                                                                                                                  




          Knocking at my door   





My arms were full of firewood and I came back to the open door to find these curious feathered friends! :)

Ah the life of free range chickens and turkey! :)

          A new way of looking at life...   
I didn't mean to let so much time go by... I didn't intend on leaving this space so abruptly...but you see, when you find the secret of life you have to just go with it and not worry about blogging, or facebooking or even take the time to keep up on laundry! When God gives you a place to be and grow and learn you just have to jump in with both feet!

It's been almost 9 months to the day that we got the call that we were moving, and then just a week or so later we were up over our heads in the moving and packing process. Life was such a whirl wind that we didn't have time to really think, rest or even take a deep breath really....it was just putting one foot in front of the other and trying not to trip along the way! It's pretty much been that way ever since! It's been nine months of hard work, hauling dirt, hauling wood chips, hauling rocks (do you see a pattern here?lol). Months of mending chicken coops, building new ones, caring for the animals we moved and the animals we have since adopted and rescued. It's been months of playing catch up with what we had hoped to accomplish in a garden. Planting, and watering and experimenting with new things. Now in the winter months, it means putting plastic covers over garden beds and researching new ways of feeding our outside animals. Months of feeling tired... in a good way... because of the goodness we are accomplishing and because of the constant blessings we are feeling. When we take the time to sit down and compare notes, hubby and I are both just feeling so blessed and renewed in this place that we are dwelling.
How can one not feel blessed to wake up to this view?

We are feeling like there has been a turn in our lives that can only be described as finding the secret of life...

For some time now, we have been inching towards a more sustainable lifestyle... It's no secret that I hate what our food industry has become and want to be no part of it (or at least to the best of our ability!) To feel the way I do about how our food is produced (how the animals are treated and cared for) and the un-needed things that are being done to the plants (GMOs) means making a change. Not a little change but a huge life altering change on a daily basis. It means watching labels and researching our food more closely but it also means that we must start producing more of it on our own. My generation was not brought up to think about where our food comes from, if anything we have been taught that it's out of sight out of mind. And for some that is ok. I truly wish that I could be that way sometimes but once I learn something it's stuck in my head and I can't go back!



It has been over the last few months that we as a family have been really taking a look at our lifestyle, and focusing on where we want to eventually be. We are finding that hard work is actually fun and that we don't need a lot of what we as a society have been taught to think we do. We are learning what it feels like to accomplish something we didn't think we could do ( like stacking a whole cord of wood- just me and my two littles). It is with this life change that we are going back in time if you will. Listening closer to the stories of family/church members who grew up on farms, and reading everything on the subject that I can get my hands on. It has even come down to changing the way we look at our entertainment options. The two favorites in our household right now are Alaska:The Last Frontier and of all things, The Waltons. Hubby and I have a running joke. When we are out working or trying to figure out a new project we just ask the other WWWD? What Would the Waltons Do? lol When he first said it, it made me laugh but now I find myself having that question in the back of my mind more and more... so I think that's what I'll title my posts that are homestead related. It really is a compliment to that show and not so much of a joke. When you actually watch the show, there are a lot of life lessons that could be learned by watching it, and for us it is just a really good reminded of what life is like in a simpler time and what it could be again if only there could be a massive shift in society and a change in the way we all view success...

          Comment on What it’s like to audition at Juilliard. When you’re 11. by Nina   
As a cellist myself, can I suggest one thing you could do that would be even more supportive than taking loving-mom photos? Carry the cello! So much better for your son to arrive with his shoulders etc in best possible shape. I once saw an adult male soloist arriving to a dress rehearsal, and his wife was carrying his Strad for him - she was a pianist herself but she didn't have to play that day, so tiring her hands/arms/back was better than tiring his.
