Fairline eSprit concept boat unveiled at London Boat Show   

Photo

The eSprit was the focus of Fairline’s Concept Cinema at the 2014 London Boat Show, an all-new feature of the Fairline stand. The concept model offered visitors an exciting proposition for the future of sustainable motor boating, without compromising Fairline’s class-leading styling and performance.

The Fairline eSprit incorporates sustainable materials in construction and design. Bio-derived epoxy resins with needle punched flax fibres are used in construction and the interior features ecoyarn upholstery fabrics, specially treated with a waterproofing plasma process. Recycled synthetic teak is used for the eSprit’s decking and the concept incorporates a solar panelled T-top that folds away to cover bow seating when
not in use.

The concept boat showcases an ergonomically optimised interior and includes a Multifunctional Steering Position with paddle throttles and integral LED control display. This allows chartplotter, radar and system information to be displayed in the optimum viewing position.     

Power options for the Fairline eSprit consist of a 400hp diesel engine, capable of 30 knots in diesel mode, coupled to an electric motor. Silent running or sustained low speed cruising is possible at 5 knots in
electric mode.

Andy Pope, Design Manager at Fairline Boats, commented: “We used the design process to explore what a sustainable future could look like for Fairline. The size of the boat, the materials used, the necessary manufacturing processes; everything was put to the sustainability test. We’ve been amazed at the positive response to what started as an adventure in concept design. The Fairline eSprit really seems to have caught the imagination and futuristic design touches like the control display on the steering wheel have been very well received.”     

Dedicated to the Fairline eSprit, the Concept Cinema brought an exciting new dimension to the Fairline stand at the 2014 London Boat Show. Visitors were welcome to explore the concept design and discover more about the future of sustainable luxury motor boating.

          AP FACT CHECK: When a swoopy line on a chart misleads   

          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.


          Find Youth Again With New Approaches For Aging Skin   

http://child-abuse-statistics.info/child-abuse-stastics/canada-child-abuse-statistics
As our skin ages, it loses elasticity and collagen fibers in the dermal layer which can lead to wrinkles. A face lift can move and tighten tissue but does very little for eliminating wrinkles. Chemical and laser peels are the most effective way to remove wrinkles.

A face lift, or technically a lower face-neck lift, is a complex procedure with more variations than almost any other operation in cosmetic surgery. All face lifts have a common goal of repositioning sagging jowls, removing excess fat in the face and neck, and tightening loose skin. We pride ourselves in producing natural results that age gracefully.

Occasionally a face lift is combined with a chin implant to produce better facial balance to produce a more youthful, tight chin. It is surprisingly common to see an excessively done face lift that ends up with a startled and overstretched or a windblown look. If you want this La Jolla look, you are best going to a La Jolla surgeon.

Chemical peels, laser peels and dermabrasions are variations of the same theme. By improving the skin texture, chemical peels and laser peels can produce some of the most dramatic results of any cosmetic surgery.

          Good news, conference countdown and costumes!   
Linley (on right) and I at Sydney 2007
This time next week I'll be at the Romance Writers of Australia Conference in Sydney. I absolutely adore the RWA conferences, and am very excited. This will be my fourth conference, and one of my favourite parts of each conference is the Harlequin Cocktail Party, which is on the Friday night. Each year I've had great fun coming up with a costume, urged on by my costume queen room mate, Linley Maroney. At my first conference in 2007, the cocktail party theme was Venetian Carnivale.  My costume involved a $29 wedding dress (bargain of the century), a brocade doona cover, some ribbon, lace and my fabulous mum's sewing skills. Linley's dress was absolutely spectacular, as you can see!

Paula Roe and I in 2008
In 2008 we were in Melbourne, and for the One Enchanted Century theme (for 100 years of Mills & Boon) I made a dress that consisted of laminated Mills & Boon covers, both present day and very old. I loved how it turned out, and I even won a prize :) (books, yay!). The photo is of me and Paula Roe (with her fabulous mermaid costume).

Last year the theme was Arabian Nights. I had a costume made while I was in Vietnam a few months earlier, so went in an I Dream of Jeannie costume. The photo (below) is of me and Paula, again - believe it or not! The photo is of Saddam and I recreating the classic "climbing the man tree" romance novel cover pose :)  However, as much as I liked that costume, about half of the party-goers had the same idea. This year I'm determined to have a "different" costume, and as I type this, I'm surrounded by the finishing touches of my costume. This year the theme is "Fantasy Island", but I'll keep my costume a surprise for now ;)

And now... for the good news!


Climbing the man tree, 2009
I woke up this morning to an email from The Golden Acorn Contest coordinator. I won my category!! This was a massive shock after my 5th placing, and no request, for The Great Beginnings contest.

And... the best bit (by far), is that this Harlequin editor's feedback was just lovely, and she has requested my partial. Hurrah!!!!!! Favourite bit of feedback: "We felt there was real promise in this voice".


Yippee!


So I guess what I've learnt from this is that even if one editor doesn't like my manuscript enough to request it (like with the Great Beginnings), it isn't necessarily the death of the manuscript.

Which is a relief :)

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


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


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


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


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


Wow - quel band!


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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




          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.”

          Has the Government's Welcome Home Loan scheme under-performed because of banks' relaxed credit policies?   

By Gareth Vaughan

Housing New Zealand's Welcome Home Loan scheme has not grown as the Government wanted it to.

We've had senior government ministers eagerly promote it, and a bank CEO extolling its virtues to participating lenders by pointing out; "It really carries no risk on our balance sheet because it's all government guaranteed."

The ministers were John Key and Nick Smith, and the CEO quoted above is SBS Bank's Shaun Drylie.

Housing NZ says, as of May 31 this year, it was "at risk" for 6,650 loans through Welcome Home Loan, with an original value of $1.469 billion. That's 150 less loans than the 6,800 - with an original loan value of $1.335 billion - at June 30, 2013. The drop, Housing NZ says, is because more loans have been repaid than taken on.

June 2013 is just before the Reserve Bank restrictions on banks' high loan to value ratio (LVR) residential mortgage lending were unveiled. Welcome Home Loans are excluded fom the Reserve Bank's LVR restrictions.

The Welcome Home Loan scheme launched in July 2003 as a two year pilot project with Kiwibank, known as “In Reach.” In July 2005, the scheme was opened to other lenders, and branded “Welcome Home Loan.” Eight lenders are actively using the Housing New Zealand scheme today. These are SBS, Kiwibank, Westpac, The Co-operative Bank, TSB Bank, NZCU Baywide, the Nelson Building Society, and the New Zealand Employees' Credit Union. 

As Housing NZ puts it; "Welcome Home Loan is offered by lenders, supported by Housing New Zealand, and, designed for first-home buyers who can afford to make regular repayments on a home loan, but have trouble saving for a large deposit. With Welcome Home Loan you only need a 10% deposit, not a 20% deposit as required by most lenders. Housing New Zealand does not issue the loan. This is done through normal lenders such as selected banks and credit unions. Housing New Zealand underwrites the loan for the lender [through lenders' mortgage insurance]. Individual applicants are required to meet the lender’s specific lending criteria. Income and house price caps apply."

'Trebling the number of loans'

Prior to the launch of the LVR restrictions, the Welcome Home Loan scheme had been going backwards. During the June 2013 year, Housing NZ settled 845 new loans, down from 1,358 the previous year.

The Reserve Bank announced on August 20, 2013 that high LVR restrictions would kick-in from October 1 that year, limiting lending to borrowers with deposits of less than 20%. Following that move the Welcome Home Loan scheme appeared, unsurprisingly, to gain in popularity given low equity loans made through the scheme are excluded from the Reserve Bank's restrictions.

Announcing Co-operative Bank's signing up to the scheme in April 2014, Building and Housing Minister Nick Smith said; "I am encouraging other banks to also join the scheme. I want as many New Zealanders as possible to have access to this Government assistance to buy their first home." At that stage ASB said its membership to the Welcome Home Loan Scheme was "currently under consideration." However three years on ASB hasn't joined, with a spokeswoman saying no decisions have been made to apply for entry. A Housing NZ spokesman said no applications from lenders wanting to join the scheme are currently under consideration.

Smith's comments came after Prime Minister John Key announced on August 11, 2013, a week before the Reserve Bank publicly unveiled its LVR move; “We will also expand the [Welcome Home Loan] scheme to treble the number of loans from about 850 loans a year to 2,500 a year."

Both in August 2013 and again in July last year as the Reserve Bank changed the LVR restrictions, Smith announced increases in house price caps for the scheme. In a rising property market, they have gone from $350,000 in Auckland, for example, to $600,000 for an existing house and $650,000 for a new one.

As it sought to "screw the scrum in favour of first home buyers," the Government also aligned the scheme's income caps with those of the KiwiSaver HomeStart scheme at $85,000 for a single person and $130,000 for a couple.

In November 2015 Smith said; "The 287 Welcome Home Loans issued for this latest quarter is also a record and shows how this programme, combined with HomeStart, is assisting families into home ownership."

'A relaxation of lenders' credit policies'

But that hasn't continued, with the 2,500 a year target looking a pipe dream. So what's going on?

Housing NZ's latest annual report, for the year to June 2016, says; "Uptake for Welcome Home Loans was lower than expected due to a relaxation of lenders' credit policies, allowing the provision of standard bank loans, rather than a Welcome Home Loan. This meant banks in the scheme did not have to draw on this product as much as in the past. Monthly demand for the Welcome Home Loan was steady over the year, but was around 10% lower than the previous year." 

Interestingly in its Financial Stability Report last month the Reserve Bank said; "Some banks have tightened lending standards over the past six months [See chart below]. In particular, banks are being more selective about their lending for residential property developments as capacity constraints in the construction industry and rising costs have contributed to increased credit risk in the sector."

The Welcome Home Loan insurance premium is 2.2% of the loan value, of which 1% is paid by the borrower and 1.2% by the Government. The Mortgage Insurance Scheme is assessed, by an actuary, three times a year to ensure the mortgage insurance liability is sufficient to cover any future claims, Housing NZ says. As of June 30 last year the total estimated liability was $29 million. At that point 40% of the original value of settled loans was with Kiwibank.

          EL DIA DEL ODIO   








En realidad
sólo quería decir
eso.
En realidad, la vida
es,
pongamos por ejemplo,
una manzana.
Entonces,
uno la mira, la toca,
le hace fiestas,
la besa, le habla,
tal vez,
hasta dibuja manzanitas
imitándola.
La quiere así, manzana,
rica, pulposa, viva, indescifrable,
sabia.
Si la quieren romper,
si viene
un bicho, por ejemplo,
un yanqui hijo de puta,
para ser más precisos,
a matarla,
ya no se puede hablar
así nomás de la manzana.
Hay que matar al bicho,
es necesario
odiarlo,
destruirlo.
Es casi obligatorio
decirle hijo de puta,
decirle yanqui hijo de puta
todos los días, religiosamente
y encontrar la manera
de acabarlo.
Por amor a la vida,
simplemente.
En realidad
tal vez no me he explicado bien.
Si uno tiene,
pongamos por ejemplo,
un amor, una cosa
que le anda por la piel
por todas partes.
Digamos
Buenos Aires,
digamos,
un octubre, un poema, una muchacha.
O digamos la esquina
de Nazca y Tequendama
los domingos, a las seis de la tarde.
(Estoy casi seguro
de que había una esquina así en Santo Domingo,
de que había un viejo,
una silla,
un cielo inverosímil,
muchachos que volvían del fútbol,
señoras apuradas,
bocinas, qué se yo
y tal vez,
hasta un tipo solitario
como yo
que miraba)
Si uno tiene un amor entonces,
eso que le camina por la piel,
decíamos,
y pasa algo,
ocurre,
que viene el mal, la peste, una desgracia,
o para no ir más lejos
vienen
los marines idiotas,
los cretinos mascadores de chicle,
odiadores de todo lo que crece
y desembarcan.
Entonces
ya no se puede hablar así nomás,
hay que matar la muerte de algún modo,
hay que pelear con rabia,
destruirlos,
salirles al encuentro como sea
y además decir, decir hijos de puta,
decirlo y masticarlo
y enseñarlo a los chicos
como un rezo.
Por amor a la vida,
simplemente,
me parece.

          My Ideal Stock Report   
So, if I was going to create my own stock report and put what I wanted in it, this is what it would look like right here:

May 10, 2009 - Sunday Evening

The market had a big turnaround Friday to a higher high for the Dow30 and the SP-500 and clears the path for a continued uptrend. The Nasdaq Composite looks like it is taking a rest as technology stocks have been far ahead of the other indices these past weeks. The financials catapulted the Dow and S&P and these two charts look very strong for more likely gains.

At the same time we have euphoria with bullish market conditions that easily gives profits to the lazy investor we cannot ignore the technical indicators that are giving overbought conditions on a short term basis. The VIX-X, Chicago Board of Options Market Volatility Index is a measure of “fear” and this looks like we should have a short term correction that may start this week. Sentimentrader’s Smart money/dumb money index and Telechart’s T2108 chart shows strong overbought conditions and S&P Oscillator shows mild overbought, Investor’s Intelligence is a slower indicator to develop but confirming other indicators. Remember these are short term indicators and will “reset” themselves once we have a short term correction.

We then would look to see if the market is going to have higher highs to resume this uptrend we have been on since March 10th.

REPEAT FROM Thursday Night: This may be a good time to close long positions on this temporary “pop” as we are seeing many stocks showing topping patterns that were once momentum stocks. We use these “early scouts” as indicators that people are starting to take profits on the high fliers.

As you have been reading in this report the last few days that many stocks are getting dangerous to buy long, remain nimble and set tighter trailing stop losses because it would only take 1-2 days of sharp corrections to give up all the long profits we have made recently. Most long positions in the stock list below are now closed as we move mostly to intraday trading (scalping) tomorrow.

The stocks that have been the hottest runs or what could be called momentum stocks, ASH, CIEN, ARO, BIDU, CLF, MEE (and many others we don’t have listed) are going to correct hardest and it is likely that we see some rebound attempt next week but my hunch is that the market will start breaking down and short opportunities with short swings will be very profitable.

So in technical analysis terms, it is possible that today was a key reversal indicator (short term) and that is my personal hunch. We are going into a transitional period where we have few positions and most will likely be now short. You could play part of your opening short positions tomorrow early and add to them as any bounce in the market occurs.

Note the life insurance stocks had a big move up today against the tide because some insurance companies were listed by the Federal Reserve as passing the stress test and not needing additional funding. The whole sector moved up, PRU, MET, HIG, PFG.


The Oil index moved up 4% today to close at $58.67 and is still shadowing the direction of the indices. Moving averages, MACD, OBV, stochastics and price charges are all starting to turn up on this sector, use XOIL as index.

Intermediate Trade Positions: NGS, Natural Gas Services is showing a nice uptrend along with the natural gas ETF, UNG. For 10 ½ months natural gas has experienced a steep drop and this recent rise in the last 8 days is the most significant of all. It is likely to see a little selling in this sector first before higher advances are made. So the best process is to let it run its current run and then pullback before opening a position.

It is good to see the companion sector of oil moving up as well so monitoring XOIL and other oil and gas stocks like XTO, EOG, COG, GMXR, APA, ATPG, CNQ, and SNP would be good to get a feel of the oil and gas sector.


Swing Trades: CMG, Chipotle Mexican Grill has more downside but let it rebound up to $80+ before considering opening a small short position.

MEE rebounded Friday but monitor this as a potential swing short trade assuming it does not make a higher high over last Thursday’s high. It looks a little on the weak side so be prepared to open a small short if it doesn’t move above $23.50 tomorrow.

Potential short swings:

ABG, Asburn Automotive is starting to turn over but still needs another spike down tomorrow to confirm a short candidates. This needs a little more time to convince us that it does to go higher highs before shorting.

ADCT, ADC Telecomm looks like a very good short idea that was opened today and is likely going to break down over the next two weeks. Worth a short position tomorrow.

REPEAT: For aggressive traders or very small position: In the next 4 to 6 weeks, look for GM, General Motors to do a reverse split and watch for opportunity to sell short or work with long put options or selling calls short. This won’t happen for some time. They plan to do a 1 for 100 shares reverse split. That will put the stock at $185 at current pricing and reverse splits are desperation attempts to stay listed on the exchange, usually done by deeply troubled companies financially. This last gasp for air strategy rarely works.

Day Traders/Intraday stock ideas: CMG, Chipotle Mexican Grill swing trade short was covered Friday morning and may give another short opportunity (2nd helping).

MEE, Massey Energy and PCX, Patriot Coal both had excellent scalps, 8.5% for MEE and 11.8% for PCX. Look for a slight pop and a drop but don’t expect for the same big profits as on Friday. These could give both long and short scalps. Intraday trading is pumping out strong profits most every day now and I see that pattern continuing. As usual, look for good intraday trades in GMXR, FSLR, ICE, BLK, CME, BIDU, AMZN, WHR, IPI, POT, MON, MOS, COG, EOG, XTO, AAPL, WFC, JPM, BAC, WFC, JPM, C, and USB or any high volume, high volatility stocks. CSIQ and STP had big short scalps, 9.3% for CSIQ and 10.8% for STP.

Progress Report: We have had numerous requests for the real-time the Trading Room and we will be more aggressive with the programming of this software. Our first programming attempt last summer was abandoned and more capable programmers are on the task now. We will keep you posted but our estimate is mid June if all goes well. The delivery of information and quality of ideas will be very unique-there won’t be anything like this!

Thoughts: Keep steady, calm, decisive, aggressive. Have no fear and no greed. Keep looking at what to be doing next in a calm manner. Don’t focus on the past or beat yourself up what you did or didn’t do or what you should have done. Just keep playing the next shot, which in this business your next shot could be just sitting on the sideline.

If you have been uncomfortable shorting stocks, which most people are, try to learn this technique, it will be a useful tool in the coming years.

When I list several stocks from the same sector, like the housing industry for example, don’t short all of them unless you are well diversified and it represents a small percentage of your total stock account (in that same account).

SWI (SWING): 2-7 days INT: Intermediate term position 8 days to several months. Open Price: price paid on opening long position or price sold on short position. Bold notes on table above represent changes from previous day.
Current positions are highlighted in yellow. Green colored lines are next probable positions to consider. Red, take action or watch closely.
IMPORTANT: The notes in this stock list is how I have been writing notes to myself about stocks for 16 years. They are general guidelines as to how I am approaching a particular stock and conditions may change during the next trading day that may cause a change in opinion before the next evening report is written.
Thoughts: Best odds only, be decisive, aggressive, mentally flexible, stay in position size, don’t overtrade and wait a little longer to buy and wait a little longer to sell. You will find that will make you more money on your trades. Trade what you see, not what you hope for. Intermediate and swing trades are really important to have trailing stop losses set.
Don’t trade unless the setup is there for you, then use the charts to tell you when the odds are heavily in your favor. Don’t force anything to work for you, let the setups develop and then take advantage of that. Be patient. Stay in position sizes without letting any intraday trade represent no more than 10-15% of your total account value. As you build your account, your position size percentage should get smaller and smaller to lower your risk.

9/11 Simplified...
James Perloff

Yes, Virginia, there really were hijackers on the 9/11 planes—but not the ones we were told

This post is not intended to be taken dogmatically; I do not insist that its conclusions are correct; they are just presented for consideration.
In this post, though they have already been much discussed and debated within alternative media, I’ll address three major components of the 9/11 controversy: (1) what brought down the Twin Towers; (2) what initially struck the Towers; and (3) what happened to the original planes and passengers.
However, there is a valid complaint often voiced in the Truth Movement, which runs like this: “I really don’t care how 9/11 was done and I’m tired of all the infighting about this. What really matters is, we know the government’s story is bogus, so we need to focus on identifying the criminals and bringing them to justice.”



I consider this a very legitimate grievance. But I don’t think we can separate “who” from “how.” When a prosecutor presents his case in a courtroom, he doesn’t name a crime’s perpetrator without describing how the crime was carried out. Nor does he present the jury with the crime’s details and methodology without identifying the suspect(s).
So let’s tackle both how and who, and we’ll start with “who,” because doing so clarifies a lot of “how.”

The Who

What’s wrong with the following math equations?
3 + 3 = 68
98 – 7 = 2
58 X 7 = 35
What’s wrong, of course, are the 8s. Take away the 8s and each equation reads correctly.
I believe that, when it comes to resolving the mystery of how 9/11 was executed, the Truth Movement suffers from a major “8” (in addition to any individual doses of cognitive dissonance that have been deliberately sprinkled in). I believe that “8” is:
9/11 was an inside job.
I believe a far more correct rendering is:
9/11 was an outside job, done by Israeli operatives, but with consent and cooperation at the highest levels of the U.S. government.
To understand this, it may be helpful to compare Israel’s vicious 1967 attack on the USS Liberty. It is well understood that President Lyndon B. Johnson and Defense Secretary Robert McNamara fully cooperated, by twice recalling U.S. fighters that the Sixth Fleet had sent to rescue the Liberty, and later by ordering a cover-up. However, at the physical operational level, the attack was carried out by Israelis, not by Americans in an “inside job.”
OK, but what’s the evidence that Israel was behind 9/11? By far the best summary I’ve seen is the WikiSpooks post 9-11/Israel Did It. (Incidentally, as many of my regular readers know, I’m half-Jewish on my father’s side, so knee-jerk charges against me of “anti-Semitism” can be stuffed in the appropriate place.)
A sampling of highlights:
• The five notorious “dancing Israelis” who filmed the Twin Towers’ destruction, after which they celebrated, high-fiving each other and even photographing themselves flicking a lighter against the backdrop of the smoking ruins. They were arrested after driving off in a van whose license number was reported by a neighbor. Later it was revealed that at least two of them were agents of Mossad, Israel’s intelligence service.
• Michael Chertoff was put in charge of the Justice Department’s investigation of 9/11, despite his mother having been a Mossad agent, and Chertoff himself reportedly holding dual citizenship in Israel. Chertoff released hundreds of arrested Israelis back to Israel, including the notorious “dancing Israelis.”
• Quoting Wikispooks: “The company that ran airport security at all three airports where the alleged hijackings originated was Huntsleigh USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of ICTS International and owned by Ezra Harel and Menachem Atzmon —both Israeli Jews.”
• ”Lucky Larry” Silverstein, who became the new owner of the World Trade Center less than two months before the attacks, and earned an insurance payout of nearly $5 billion on his $124 million investment (after missing the disaster due to a fortuitous doctor’s appointment on the morning of 9/11) was such good friends with Benjamin Netanyahu that the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported in November 2001: “Every Sunday afternoon, New York time, Netanyahu would call Silverstein. It made no difference what the subject was or where Netanyahu was, he would always call.”1
• Supported by funds from Israel’s government, Zim Israel Navigational was the world’s ninth largest shipping firm. It had its American headquarters in the World Trade Center—until about two weeks before 9/11. Zim then moved its offices and employees to a new building, claiming rent was cheaper there.
• The 9/11 Commission’s executive director was Philip Zelikow, a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen. Why should anyone with sworn loyalty to a foreign nation be entrusted with such a position?
• On 9/11, the chairman of George W. Bush’s Defense Policy Board was Richard Perle, whom the National Security Agency had caught spying on the U.S. for Israel in 1970.
• On 9/11, employees of the Israeli instant messaging company Odigo received messages two hours before the attack, warning them not to be in the World Trade Center.
• Ptech, a software firm linked to Israeli intelligence, had provided vital software being used by the FAA, FBI, and U.S. armed forces on 9/11.
• On 9/11, seated in row 9 of Flight 11 (directly behind “Mohammed Atta”) was Danny Lewin, a former captain in the IDF (Israeli Defense Force), and who served in the Sayeret Matkal, which specializes in counter-terrorism, hostage rescue, and assassination. Lewin could bench-press 315 pounds and “was trained to kill terrorists with a pen or a credit card, or just his bare hands.”2 In 2000, he had himself photographed in front of panels resembling the Twin Towers, wearing a Swatch Watch whose model name was “Hijacker.” The hour, minute and second hands were all on the “11” and the date was set to the 11th, even though the picture was taken on the 10th.




The odds against all four time indicators being on “11” are more than 20,000 to 1. Times the odds of the watch model being named “Hijacker”: unfathomable.
That’s just a small sampling of the evidence that Israel did 9/11. When police detectives try to solve a murder, among the first questions asked is: Who benefitted from the crime? In 9/11’s case, Middle Eastern Muslims did not benefit—the U.S. has been making war on them for 16 years. America did not benefit—we’re suffering the casualties and trillions in costs from the wars, as well as degradation of our liberties in the name of security. The only beneficiary was Israel—her enemies have been neutralized one by one, courtesy America, in fulfillment of the Greater Israel plan, with Iran reputedly next on the hit list.
That’s the main who; let’s talk about the how.

(1) How were the Twin Towers destroyed?

Within alternative media are three major schools of thought about this. One is nano-thermite, largely advocated by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. Another is Directed Energy Weapons (DEWs), whose foremost advocate is Dr. Judy Wood. The third is nuclear devices, which I and a few others support. Let me be clear: I have friends in all three camps, and differing opinions on this matter don’t impede our friendships.
I’ve laid out why I believe the Twin Towers’ collapse was a nuclear event in an extensive blog post. To minimize redundancy, I’ll shrink this to a “top ten” list:

TOP TEN REASONS THE WTC COLLAPSE WAS A NUCLEAR EVENT

1. Thyroid cancer occurs at above-average frequency in 9/11 first responders more than any other type of cancer (see full post for citations). This is a signature of nuclear bombs; they emit iodine-131, which collects in the thyroid, often causing cancer. (This is why some people keep potassium iodide tablets on hand—to protect their thyroid glands in case of a nuclear attack.)
2. World Trade Center dust samples examined by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) found Uranium, Strontium, Barium, Thorium, and other products of nuclear fission, in high concentrations that only an atomic blast could explain. Although the Survey avoided calling attention to the significance, William Tahil vetted it in his pioneering 2006 book Ground Zero: The Nuclear Demolition of the World Trade Centre. (The phrase “ground zero,” incidentally, had only been applied to nuclear detonation sites prior to 9/11.)
3. There was molten steel underneath the rubble of the World Trade Center, whose fires kept burning for over three months. Extraordinary heat is yet another signature of a nuclear bomb.
(Note: I’m aware that molten steel was seen at a corner of the South Tower before its collapse; I don’t doubt that pre-planted explosives were in the Towers, probably including the incendiary thermite, but I don’t believe these explosives were what destroyed the WTC. To clarify, each Tower had six basement levels, and the thesis of my full post—which I had excellent assistance with—is that each Tower was destroyed by a suitcase nuke positioned at the lowest point in either building: the services pits beneath elevator 50. This was the only elevator that ran the full length of either Tower, and the only elevator whose service pits were carved into the bedrock beneath the World Trade Center. This location would make the ideal “launching pad” for a nuke, as the bedrock would contain the sideways and downward force of a nuclear explosion, which would follow the path of least resistance up through the shaft. See the full post for diagrams.)
4. The Towers did not simply “fall,” they exploded, throwing chunks of steel weighing multiple tons hundreds of feet. Check, for example, this piece that embedded itself in the American Express Building across the street:

No exotic weapons are needed to explain this. A nuclear bomb is the most powerful explosive known.
5. The Towers’ inner contents were vaporized: no furniture, filing cabinets (except one), computers, or toilets survived. All turned into dust. Even the buildings’ concrete became dust, instead of falling as chunks of debris. The vaporization, of course, included the people inside (whole bodies that were found belonged to people who jumped before the Towers disintegrated). Not only is a nuclear bomb the most powerful explosive known, its blast—unlike conventional explosives—endures for several seconds, enabling it to inflict considerably more damage.
6. At the times of the two Tower “collapses,” seismographs at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, New York, recorded enormous off-the-chart spikes consistent with huge explosions.


This shot of the South Tower exploding caught a huge singular upward burst of energy.
7. A nuclear blast explains the damage to the rest of the World Trade Center. Buildings 5 and 7 suffered enormous fires, and building 6 was cratered out. These phenomena could not have begun before the Towers’ destruction; otherwise, videos of the burning Towers would have shown additional smoke plumes, and cameras would have panned to the blazes.
Nuclear blasts originating at the lowest levels of the Twin Towers may provide the answer. Underground the World Trade Center was interconnected by pipes, not only for sewage, but a 3-foot-wide storm water drainage system.
Any building’s place at greatest risk for flooding is its lowest point. For the Twin Towers, this would have been Elevator 50’s service pits. From here flood water would be pumped through pipes to the 36-inch storm drain. Thus atomic blasts here would not only follow the path of least resistance through Elevator 50’s shaft, but through the 36-inch storm water drain, traveling through the underground pipes and shooting up through buildings 5, 6 and 7, igniting them. Falling debris could not have caused the raging internal fires seen in the smaller buildings; edifices outside the World Trade Center (American Express Building, Winter Garden Atrium) were heavily impacted by debris, but they did not catch fire. THEY WERE NOT CONNECTED TO THE WTC’S UNDERGROUND DRAINAGE SYSTEM.
Please see my full post for elaboration and documentation of the above point.
8. On 9/11, New Yorkers fled two terrifying dust clouds that engulfed the area surrounding the WTC. Anyone who watches videos of nuclear bombs detonating will see that they create sprawling ground-level clouds. Although building demolitions also routinely make dust clouds, the 9/11 ones seemed to have had a life of their own.

La musique des migrants dans les camps

Migrantinnen-musik in den migrantenlagern

Faire de l’art en situation d’urgence
Musik machen in ausnahmesituationen
*  *  *
Publié le mardi 20 juin 2017 par Céline Guilleux
RÉSUMÉ
Cette université d’été a deux objectifs. le premier est d'explorer un secteur mal étudié de l’ethnologie comme la musique dans les camps de transit. S’il existe une abondante littérature historienne et musicologique sur la musique dans les camps de concentration et dans les camps d’extermination, rares sont les études qui portent sur les pratiques musiciennes. Le second objectif est de construire une démarche comparative afin de mesurer la singularité d’une observation ponctuelle sur ce que l’on appelle la crise des migrants en Europe : Paris, Baigorri, Calais, Dunkerque (France), Friedland (Göttingen, Allemagne), M’Bera (Mauritanie), Mentao (Burkina Faso), Zaatari (Jordanie).  
ANNONCE

But 

Cette université d’été a pour titre « La musique des migrants dans les camps. Faire de l’art en situation d’urgence ». Elle a deux objectifs : 
  • explorer un secteur mal étudié de l’ethnologie : la musique dans les camps de transit. S’il existe une abondante littérature historienne et musicologique sur la musique dans les camps de concentration et dans les camps d’extermination (Dick Walda, Charles Van West, Shmuel Gogol, Emilio Jani, Gabriele Knapp, Annette Wieviorka, Philip Bohlman, Pierre-Emmanuel Dauzat & Hélios Azoulay) rares sont les études qui portent sur les pratiques musiciennes ;  
  • construire une démarche comparative afin de mesurer la singularité d’une observation ponctuelle sur ce que l’on appelle la crise des migrants en Europe : Paris, Baigorri, Calais, Dunkerque (France), Friedland (Göttingen, Allemagne), M’Bera (Mauritanie), Mentao (Burkina Faso), Zaatari (Jordanie). 

Argument

 Au mois de mai 2013, Awet Andemicael, étudiante en théologie de l’université de Yale publie sur le site de l’UNHCR un article marquant : The arts in refugee camps: ten good reasons. De la prise en charge de soi aux techniques d’apprentissage et à l’agency, ces raisons visent à légitimer l’action des ONG pour la musique. Pourtant, ces raisons sont insatisfaisantes. Car le raisonnement est élaboré à partir des catégories de l’action humanitaire et non à partir du vécu des populations.  
  1. Cette université d’été renverse la perspective. Et plutôt que de partir des catégories instituées pour examiner de quelle façon elles s’incarnent dans la réalité, nous partons de l’engagement ethnographique pour examiner les processus d’institution des catégories, ce qui permet d’organiser ensuite, mais ensuite seulement, une montée en généralité à partir de la collection des cas.  
  2. Par ailleurs, nous prenons nos distances avec les clichés sur les bienfaits prêtés à la musique et à l’art thérapie. Nous examinons, au prix d’observations ethnographiques, situées et contextualisées, la façon dont la musique modifie la vie de chacun et celle des collectifs impliqués.  
  3. Enfin, nous questionnons l’ontologie de la musique. Des travaux antérieurs nous ont permis d’entériner le fait que la musique est subjective du point de vue ontologique et objective du point de vue épistémique. Cette fois, nous soumettons la question « qu’est-ce que la musque pour qui la pratique et l’écoute ? » à l’enquête ethnographique.  

Ancrages situationnels  

Bien des chercheurs qui ont mené ces analyses sur les pratiques artistiques dans des camps se sont d’abord confrontés à ces situations au prix d’un engagement citoyen. Dans ces situations d’anomie, ils ont rencontré « la musique », et ceux qui la faisaient être. Dès lors, ces migrants qu’un élan compassionnel faisait prendre pour « de pauvres malheureux » devenaient dans le regard de l’ethnographe attentif, par la force de la performance musicienne, par les habiletés incorporées et les références culturelles actualisées, des artistes virtuoses.   
Dans des contextes qui rendent toute communication verbale difficile en raison de l’étanchéité des langues, la musique et la danse rendent possible le partage, restaurent une forme de symétrie de l’échange. La profession de foi de Natacha Bouchart, maire de Calais, résonne : « Accueillir des migrants, ça peut être une richesse culturelle exceptionnelle » (Libération, 20 octobre 2015). Pourquoi donc la musique, alors que chacun se trouve « maintenu là, dans l’inachèvement d’un parcours de mobilité, ni immigré ni émigré mais suspendu en migration » (M. Agier, 2014) ?  
Cette rencontre de jeunes chercheurs propose de travailler à partir d’études de cas.

Études de cas 

Paris, Foyer de Travailleurs Migrants du 19e arrondissement  

Un foyer de travailleurs migrants (FTM) est une structure d’hébergement qui accueille aujourd’hui des « hommes célibataires » de Mauritanie, du Mali et du Sénégal. On peut y cuisiner, se laver, dormir (et repartir travailler). Or, malgré les conditions de promiscuité, on y fait aussi de la musique. Car l’invité invite. « Invitation » est le terme par lequel les habitants de foyer désignent le fait d’accueillir dans leur chambre un griot qui vienne chanter leur nom avec son luth ngoni. « L’invitation » est une occasion musicale de rencontre. Ce n’est pas la seule. Car à une autre échelle, des moments de retrouvailles et de partage culturel sont organisés dans des salles des fêtes louées par des associations proches des habitants de foyers. Ces espaces se convertissent en lieux d’échanges, d’assemblées générales, de projets et en studio d’enregistrement. Il en est ainsi de centres sociaux et culturels où sont organisés ces journées culturelles, ces repas et ces occasions de musique. 

M’Bera, Mauritanie  

Février 2012. Les habitants du Nord Mali fuient le conflit armé. L’UNHCR installe 400.000 réfugiés Touaregs et Arabes dans des camps aux frontières de la Mauritanie, de l’Algérie, du Burkina Faso et du Niger. M’Berra est le plus important : 80.000 personnes. Ici, le quotidien s’organise. Au- delà des questions sanitaires et nutritionnelles, il y a le désir partagé de célébrer des événements en commun. Il n’y a pas de tabaski sans musique, ni de fin de ramadan. Le tinde et l’imzad sont fabriqués sur place. Il y a aussi des « soirées guitare ». Tout le monde danse et frappe des mains. Mohamed Issa ag Oumar est là. C’est LE guitariste du groupe Tartit, fer de lance avec Tinariwen de la musique touareg sur la scène de la World Music. Il a apporté sa guitare. On branche des amplis sur les batteries des voitures. Ici s’émancipe une économie de la World Music à visée interne, au sein du camp.  

Mentao, Burkina Faso  

Nous sommes à 20 kilomètres de Ouagadougou. En octobre 2014, Marta Amico visite le camp en compagnie d’une musicienne du groupe Tartit, qui dirige l’organisation des femmes du camp. Un musicien armé de sa guitare entonne un chant de bienvenue. Des femmes se joignent à lui. M. Amico interroge : Pourquoi la musique ? Parce que c’est la vie. Ici, « la musique » n’est pas quelque chose « à part », une activité en soi : c’est l’instrument de la vie sociale, c’est le fait de pouvoir continuer à se réunir autour des célébrations d’avant qui fait toute l’importance des moments de jeu. Et c’est la raison pour laquelle on retrouve ici tellement de musiciens : ils ont fui les groupes islamistes qui interdisent la musique dans le Nord Mali. Ici, ils organisent des dj set improvisés. Et ils se connectent au monde. Dans ces moments où tout cède, la musique fabrique du lien social.  

Zaatari, Jordanie  

Construit en juillet 2012, le camp de Zaatari est situé à la frontière syrienne. 80.000 réfugiés syriens y vivent dans des conditions précaires, près du pays qu’ils ont fui. Zaatari dépend entièrement de l’aide humanitaire. Plusieurs ONG travaillent autour d’activités musicales, c’est le cas d’OXFAM International. Comment la musique est-elle appréhendée dans le règlement du camp ? Comment est- elle mobilisée par les musiciens euxmêmes ? Quel rapport chacun entretient-il à l’écoute ? Et quels sont les répertoires qui entrent dans l’espace public ? Engagée par OXFAM International, Gaétane Lefebvre a travaillé au plus près des interactions musiciennes. Elle a établi des liens avec Nicolas Puig, anthropologue spécialiste des camps de réfugiés au Liban et Richard Wolf, réalisateur de A requiem for Syrian refugees” (2014). L’université d’été permettra de visionner ce film, en présence de N. Puig et du réalisateur. 

Baigorri, France (64)  

Le 20 novembre 2015, à l’initiative de l’Office français de l’immigration et de l’intégration (OFII), une cinquantaine de migrants s’installent à Baigorri, dans les montagnes basques. Ils ont quitté le Soudan, l’Erythrée, le Tadjikistan, l’Afghanistan et tous les Kurdistan. Ils ne savent pas où ils sont, ne parlent ni français, ni anglais, ni basque, mais ils ont dit oui, et l’OFII les a conduits ici. La mairie réquisitionne le VVF, la préfecture finance, les bénévoles aident les migrants dans leurs démarches administratives. Des ateliers sont en place. Une osmose s’opère. Des ateliers de danse basque sont créés, des ateliers de musique aussi. L’un d’eux réclame un violon. Un violon est trouvé. Il joue sans vibrato, sur des échelles improbables : nous offre un makâm syrien. Pourquoi donc la musique ici ? 
Ces études de cas seront complétées par d’autres cas présentés par les étudiants qui participeront à l’Université d’été, et par les exposés de Philip Bohlman (University of Chicago) sur la musique dans les camps et de Raimund Vogels (Hildesheim) sur l’institutionnalisation des expériences menées en Niedersachsen pour valoriser le talent d’artistes réfugiés et leur procurer une formation diplomantes qui leur ouvre les portes du marché du travail artistique en Allemagne.

Production scientifique

(en partenariat avec Les Cahiers d’Ethnomusicologie)  

Les candidats sont invités à présenter, à partir de leurs travaux personnels, un projet de texte (2 pages) abordant l’une des thématiques de cette Ecole d’été.

          Reply #1399   
In answer to your question, What makes the #6 ball so popular instead of the #5 or any other ball?, I did a little research. It turns out the recent run of 6s is just what statistics folks call a cluster. It doesn't mean a thing. However, I went through the North Carolina P3 numbers and I did find something a little odd. I went to the NCEL site and downloaded the entire history of the numbers and then counted them up. The result is the following chart. I've highlighted the low/high numbers in ye... [ More ]

Well, with that 428 in the day draw, my workup gained some and lost some. 895 is a good number for tonight. 333 and 555 keep hanging around. That may be a bogey, I'm not sure. Same deal with 911 which keeps hanging around in my NCEL workup. We'll see. If you look again at the little 428/301 chart I posted above, I think you... [ More ]

That 826 didn't change things too much (except add 679, groan). I'm less excited about the 820 than I was this morning. If one of those precursor numbers had shown up, it would have been a very different matter... Anyway, now that I'm over that, I think I'm going to play that 333.

The Italian team made a lonely return after losing in the group stages of the World Cup. The chartered jets arrived in Milan and Rome, but no supporters turned up at either of the airports.

Some people speculated that they would have a rough reception upon their arrival, but it seems that many fans are more appalled than angry. The national team's poster was vandalized at the airport in Rome.

The Japanese national team comes home with broken spirits... but is greeted by huge cheers!?

Yoshito Okubo (32): "I expected harsh criticisms..."

The national team was treated harshly in 1998 after coming home from their first ever World Cup. A fan threw a bottle of water at goalless forward Shoji Jo at the time. There was added security at the airport this year, and even prevented a fan from putting up a banner that read "Nothing's changed from the World Cup in France".

1,000 supporters turned up at Narita airport to welcome the team as they made their way into the arrivals lobby. Everyone looked down as they buckled up for a harsh reception but got a surprisingly warm reception in return.

There were a few who lashed at them but were still drowned out by the cheers. Manager Alberto Zaccheroni raised his hand up in response to this. This was the same thing that happened at the hotel. The fallen athletes were treated like idols. Captain Hasebe once stated that "Football is the world's culture. It has been established as a way of life and a major part of the culture in the powerful nations, and the team will suffer from intense criticisms once they lose. I want our people and the media to be a bit more strict on us", but what waited for them was entirely different.

          Normalization Ideas Weigh on Greenback   

A virus has spread across the markets as the first half drew to a close.  Many investors have become giddy.   The low vol environment was punctuated by ideas that peak in monetary accommodation is past and that the gradual process of normalization is beginning.   Some investors may be exaggerating how soon the Bank of England and the European Central Bank will raise interest rates, but there seems to be little doubt about the direction of policy going forward.  

It is not just the ECB and BOE.  The Bank of Canada meets on July 12, and the market is pricing in around a 75% chance of a hike.  The Reserve Bank of Australia and Sweden's Riksbank meets in the week ahead, and they too will likely embrace the prospects of normalization.    Ironically, it is only the US, which has seen core CPI and core PCE move lower for four consecutive months that the market doubts.   Using either the Fed funds futures or the OIS market, it appears that less than a 50% chance of hike before the end of the year is discounted

The BOJ is the other exception.  It has refrained from discussing an exit strategy.  Its core inflation rose 0.4% in May.  The target is 2%.  The core rate includes energy.  If energy is excluded as well, prices in Japan are flat year-over-year, while overall household spending contracted for 15-months year-over-year throughMay.   With the collective wisdom of the markets judging the Fed and BOJ will lag behind the other central banks in the period ahead, the dollar and yen were the poorest performing major currencies last week and for the month of June.  

The Dollar Index slumped 1.6% in the last week of June. This offsets the minor gains it had recorded earlier in the month.  The 1..3% decline for the month is the fourth consecutive losing month since the December 2010-April 2011 period.  The 4.7% loss in Q2 is the largest since Q3 10.  Although it is below its lower Bollinger Band (95.73), the other technical indicators are not over-extended, nor showing divergences.  The next target is near 94.30.  Below there, chart support ahead of last year's low a little below 92.00 is sparse.  

The euro broke out of the $1.11-$1.13 range, which we suggested, points to a test on $1.15 and then last year's high near $1.1615.  The 2015 high was recordednear $1.1715.   We note that the $1.1735 area also corresponds to a 38.2% retracement of the euro's decline from May 2014 (~$1.40) to the low at the start of the year  (~$1.0340).

The dollar stalled against the yen after approaching JPY113.00.  A small shelf has been built around JPY111.80, which is also where the 200-day moving average is found.    Technical indicators warn that the dollar's upside may become more difficult.   The 100-day moving average (~JPY111.20) is an obvious target, below which lies a band of support in the JPY110.40-JPY110.80.  

The prospects of the BOE removing accommodation, which it began with the raising the capital buffer, sent sterling for seven consecutive sessions through June 20 before profit-taking was seen after sterlingapproached the high for the year above $1.30.    Technical indicators are still supportive.  The $1.3055 area represents the 38.2% retracement of sterling fall from the referendum high of $1.50.  If this area is convincingly taken out, there is not much on the charts before $1.3400.  

Of the various central banks that investors are thinking are preparing to normalize policy, the Bank of Canada strikes us as the most credible.  The Bank of Canada has prepared the markets.  The recovery of the Senior Loan Officer survey after a couple of quarters of weakness seems to be the last key piece to fall into place.  On July 7, Canada reports its June jobs data.  Given the recent strength of the labor market, including rising wages, it will take a significant downside shock to deter the rate hike.  

The technical indicators are getting stretched, but there is no divergence at hand.  As the US dollar has fallen to new nine-month lows, it has built a head of steam.  It fell every session in the last week of June for more than a 2% decline and a nearly 4% decline for the month.  The next major support area is seen in the CAD1.2760 area.   A move above CAD1.3050 would be the first sign of consolidative/corrective phase.  

The Australian dollar culminated its recent rally by poking through $0.7700 briefly before the weekend.  It reached its best level in three months.    The Reserve Bank of Australia meets in early July, and although it is unlikely to change rates,  it is likely to dampen lingering ideas that a rate cut may still be delivered.  The central bank may not like the currency appreciation, but on a trade-weighted basis, it is several percentage points lower than it was the last time it was around $0.7700.    Also with iron ore prices rallying 20% over the past couple of weeks, the terms of trade have improved.  Initial support is seen in the $0.7620-$0.7640 area.  

The taper tantrum sparked in Europe managed to do for US yields what economic data and the Federal Reserve were unable to do--steepen the yield curve.  The two-year yield rose three basis points in the last week of June, while the 10-year yield rose 17 bp.  The backing up of the long-end was the most in a week since the first week in March.  The yield has entered the  2.30%-2.35% band that may take some time to work through the supply.  The September note futures peaked on June 14 and spent the second half of the month moving lower, effectively unwinding what it had gained in the first couple of weeks of June.  The 125-08-125-15 area houses retracement objectives and other chart points.   Bearish divergences in the technical indicators and the extreme market positioning provides scope for additional declines in prices (higher yields).  

Oil prices rose every day last week, extending its advance to seven consecutive sessions,  the longest such streak since last September-October.   The rally has approached the 38.2% retracement of the sharp decline (~$46 basis the August futures contract).  The technical tone looks constructive and there is near-term potential into the $47-$48 band.  Support now is seen near $44.50.

Although the S&P 500 had a difficult week, having to cope with the rise in yields and the failure of the Senate to pass healthcare reform, which raises questions about the broader economic agenda, it managed to close higher on the month.  It is the seventh monthly gain over the past eight months.    It is the seventh consecutive quarterly advance.  In fact, since the beginning of 2013, there have only been two quarterly declines in the S&P 500 (Q2-Q3 15).    Many investors still seem inclined to buy pullbacks.  A break of 2400, though, would be a test of this sentiment.  Over the past week, the Russell 1000 Growth Index (RLG) fell 1.5%, while the Russell 1000 Value Index (RLV) rose 0.35%.  On the month, RLG fell 0.4%, snapping a seven-month advance, while the RLV rose 1.5%, breaking a three-month down draft.

          Bitcoin's 'bubble' is unlike anything we've ever seen   

There are still some question marks about whether bitcoin is in a bubble. But the speed of its price growth is already nearly unmatched.

The cryptocurrency has surged 162% in very volatile trading this year amid continued demand. But as the chart below illustrates, bitcoin's longer-term rally by as much as 1,000% was swifter than homebuilder stocks in the lead up to the housing crash. 

Jeffrey Kleintop, the chief global investment strategist at Charles Schwab, said that "the 10-year buildup is important to how embedded the bubble becomes and how much impact the bursting has on the economy and markets."

In other words, this is simply unprecedented. But arguably, a bitcoin crash probably won't have the same ripple effect on the economy as some other assets would. 

Billionaire Marc Cuban is among those who have said bitcoin prices are in a bubble. "When everyone is bragging about how easy they are making $=bubble," he tweeted

Ethereum, another cryptocurrency, is up by more than 3,000% this year

NOW WATCH: An economist explains what could happen if Trump pulls the US out of NAFTA


          A trade war 'could threaten the success' of Trump's presidency but he might start one anyway   

China steel

Donald Trump is playing a dangerous game of chicken with international trade.

While he initially backed away from major protectionist campaign promises, including ripping up the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and naming China a currency manipulator, Trump and his top economic officials have kept up the "America First" drumbeat, insisting the United States has gotten a raw deal from a global trading system it played an enormous role in shaping. 

The latest point of attrition is steel, which has long been the subject of targeted trade disputes between the United States and China. Yet Trump’s aggressive negotiating tone carries a great risk that international trust will evaporate, narrowing rather than improving the wiggle room for fresh agreements.

"Protection is pernicious since it restricts imports and usually this triggers more counter restrictions," Richard Baldwin, professor of international economics at the Graduate Institute, Geneva, told Business Insider.

In particular, Baldwin worries Trump’s evocation of national security concerns to justify the potential tariffs could have broader repercussions. Only 3% of US-made steel is used for military purposes.

"The National Defense clause however opens things up to basically unlimited protection and thus the Section 232 moves are potentially a new and dangerous development," he said. "This is not just more dumping duties of the type we’ve seen on steel for decades."

Caroline Freund, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics (where I used to work), says she’s hopeful industry pressure and economic reality is forcing the Trump team to rethink its more draconian proposals, such as tearing up NAFTA.

"I think what they’re looking for is a voluntary export restraint agreement, where Canada and Germany and whoever say we volunteer not to export more, a self-enforced quota that’s agreed upon," she said. "The manufacturing industries are lobbying hard because steel is going to be even more expensive."

"The problem is they’ve antagonized other countries so much, especially after pulling out of the Paris [climate] Accord — you could have gotten there with a carrot rather than a stick, you had have a better chance at a deal," Freund added. 

Richard Haas, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, was clearly taking the Trump threat seriously.

          PRESENTING: The most important charts in the world from the brightest minds on Wall Street   

markets 4x3

Here they are: the most important charts in the world. 

Once again, we asked dozens of top strategists, economists, and writers for one chart that is top of mind right now. The slideshow includes their verbatim analysis of the trend they picked. 

All of these charts were submitted by June 16, so some of the data may have evolved since then.

With assistance from Rachael Levy, Elena Holodny, and Jonathan Garber.

 

David Rosenberg

"This is where the power and influence still reside, and nothing is going to stop the inevitability that nearly two million of this critical demographic group will be turning 70 annually for the next 15 years. And they are very likely to make it to 85 or even older with medical advancement.

This has crucial implications for the financial markets because it is when you turn 70 that you undertake the most profound asset mix shift since you were in your 30s and loaded up on equities — when you turn 70, preservation of capital and cash flows becomes much more important, and yet in a world where 'safe yield' has become extremely scarce, the investment challenges for the aging but not yet aged boomers are going to be daunting, to say the least."  



Rick Rieder

"This crisis has under-appreciated negative side effects for the US economy as a whole. Most significantly, student loans are making it harder for first-time home buyers to afford their own home, with more than 70% of would-be first-time buyers saying student loan debt is delaying their home purchase, according to the National Association of Realtors. As a result, the homeownership rate in the US has fallen each of the last six years despite a solid economic recovery, according to the US Census Bureau, with the biggest impact coming from the 25-34 year old cohort as seen in the chart above. 

The student loan burden is not just curtailing young adults’ home buying; it is weakening their consumption in general, posing a major headwind to US economic growth. In addition to the direct economic impact, the student loan crisis could also worsen the class divide. Home ownership levels at age 30 are much lower among those with college debt than those without, and when faced with today’s high college costs coupled with the prospect of taking on significant debt, more students from lower-income households may choose not to attend college, worsening their outlook for employment and wage income over the course of their career. The bottomline: This crisis is likely to be a major drag on the US economy for years to come if it remains unaddressed, and an elegant fiscal-policy solution is needed, the sooner the better."

          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.

          MORGAN STANLEY: Here's why it makes sense for Tesla to become the next big music-streaming service (TSLA)   

FILE PHOTO - New Autopilot features are demonstrated in a Tesla Model S during a Tesla event in Palo Alto, California October 14, 2015. REUTERS/Beck Diefenbach

Tesla, the electric-car and energy-storage company, could become the next big music-streaming service.

Last week, a representative told Business Insider that it was important for its customers to "listen to the music they want from whatever source they choose." The comments followed a report suggesting the company was working on a music-streaming service.

And according to Adam Jonas, an equity strategist at Morgan Stanley, this would make sense.

Silicon Valley is interested "in the potential multi-trillion dollar opportunity selling data, content, and experiences unfamiliar to today's auto firms," Jonas said in a note on Tuesday.

"The potential total addressable market of such a bundled mile (utility + content + data) dwarfs some of the major end markets (PC, smartphones) that Silicon Valley currently services."

By 2030, Jonas forecast, Tesla Mobility — an on-demand service similar to Uber — would have about 2 million cars, and there would be about 7 million privately owned Teslas.

"Tesla wants to be more than a 'dumb pipe'" that moves people around, Jonas said.

The auto industry would be a "money loser" by 2030, Jonas said. However, Tesla would be able to monetize the time that people are spending in their cars, as it and other companies develop what he described as a "living room on wheels."

"These firms could cede 100% of the value of content to the likes of Apple, Alphabet, Pandora, Sirius, or Netflix," Jonas said. "On the other hand, they could say: 'Wait a second. This is our venue. Our OLED screen. Our speakers. Our HMI. Our seats. Our software. Let's at least give the customer a choice of using our own apps before we too quickly go the way of the pure handset manufacturers.'"

Additionally, the buying power of people who own Tesla's electric cars could be well-suited to the market for paid premium content.

Jonas expects that Tesla's peers entering the self-driving and ride-hailing space, including Alphabet and Apple, could also explore original content for their cars' passengers.

But these competitors are bigger and better capitalized than Tesla, meaning they could provide ride-hailing services at a loss and at Tesla's expense, Jonas said.

Music streaming is worth about $50 million in enterprise value to Tesla, Jonas estimated.

          Billboard-based Internet Marketing Campaign and Tracking & Measuring ROI   

Placing an advertisement on a billboard in a high traffic area will surely bring results. Measuring it however, can be a tough job. For each marketing campaign, measuring performance is crucial. Measuring the efficiency of a advertisement depends on 2 things:

  1. Clickthrough Rate (CTR) and 
  2. Return on Investment (ROI). 

CTR

For a billboard, Clickthrough Rate refers to the percentage of the desired action from impressions. Unless eye and camera tracking technology improves, it is not possible to monitor the clickthrough rate for a billboard.

ROI

However, monitoring the return on marketing investment or ROI from a billboard is very much possible - If you know your traffic sources. But, to ensure the tracking and measuring ROI of a billboard you have to turn it into an internet marketing campaign involving call to action using internet technology.

Hire us for Interactive Marketing - How to Turn Your Billboard into Interactive Marketing Campaign

If you invest in Billboard Advertising, then you can take some initiatives to make your display more interactive while effectively measuring it’s ROI. viz.

Using a Landing Page URL

A website on your billboard is good for marketing and branding but does not allow you to properly measure ROI from multiple campaigns that direct on your domain. The best way to measure ROI, is referring to an alternate URL, one that does not disturb your expected web traffic. For the URL, you can:

  • Create a new isolated/orphan landing page on your site (make sure it is blocked from search engines and not used in other web marketing campaigns)
  • Purchase a new domain and refer the billboard visitors to that site (you can also make it redirect to the landing page on your site or just use URL masking or use frames/iframes)
  • Use the existing landing page with parameters built by Google URL Builder (it allows you to see custom reports in web analytics from ad variations reports)
  • Use an easy to read bit.ly shortened link. bit.ly specifically delivers analytics that you can use to measure traffic from your advertisement. Other URL Shortener Services that supply analytics will work just as well.

The URL visits can be easily tracked with Google Analytics or any other Web Analytics application. This gives the campaign transparency and allows for high ROI visibility. The URL you refer on the billboard should be easily readable. Long URLs won’t typically generate action. Often, most conversions happen after the fact, so it is wise to help the readers remember your URL.

Using QR Codes

QR Codes have been around for long time, but the use of these 2-dimensional codes for Interactive Marketing is a new trend. It helps you to download information or generate a specific action on your mobile phone using widely available bar-code scanners. For the iPhone (Semacode), Android Phones (QuickMark), Blackberry (ScanLife), Symbian Phones or Nokia (UpCode) are among several competing apps that can read QR Codes from any printed media or digital screen. QR Codes are now being used for Internet Marketing, Mobile Marketing, and even Word of Mouth Marketing. With QR Codes, any camera-enabled smartphone users can:

  • Be referred to a specific URL
  • Get a phone number, allowing them to can call instantly
  • Download business cards to save on their phone and make calls at a later time
  • Get an email address and/or enable them to send emails from phone instantly
  • Be referred to a geographical location on Google Maps and help them to come to your place of business
  • Can be sent an event invitation, which can be saved in phone’s calendar
  • Be shown a text message (This can also be a coupon)
  • Get an SMS template to send queries to your business cellphone number
  • Gain access to your sponsored WiFi Network, etc.

The interaction with QR Codes are increasing day by day and steadily becoming the bridge between the real and virtual worlds. Determine the type of interaction that will deliver the best visibility of your ROI. There are many sites that allows you to generate QR codes (e.g. Zxing Projects QR Generator). A major service currently in use is the Google Chart API. Here is an article on how you can generate QR Codes in bulk with Google Chart API.

Bluetooth Advertising Near the Billboard

Bluetooth Adverts are the newest trend in mobile marketing. If your billboard is in convenient location, then you can send more interactive information and coupons to your billboard Bluetooth users. You can easily transmit richer content to your viewers. Moreover you can also digitally track the Bluetooth downloads.

Email Tracking

Email is one of the most convenient ways of communication, even on mobile devices. Make sure you have a different email address on the billboard than the one you use in other media campaigns. This will allow you to verify the emails you get on the allocated address are coming from billboard advert. If you incentivize people sending emails to that address e.g. with coupon, then you can also trigger the behavior of the billboard audience to send emails to the custom address rather than other addresses or web contact forms.

Using Call Analytics

HostedNumbers.com, AdInsight.eu, and Mongoose Metrics have call tracking services that you can be monitored from Google Analytics. However, there are several other call tracking and analytics softwares that your can use. They generate a unique phone number (even toll-free) that you can use on the billboard. When someone calls, you can see how much traffic came from your billboard advertisement and then use Google Analyitcs to see how long they were on the call. Again, it is imperative that this phone number is not made available elsewhere. There will always be a risk that word of mouth marketing will ruin your direct analytics. This information being shared is beyond your control.

Using Coupons

Coupons are one of the best ways to track where a customer has come from. You can mention an easily readable coupon code for all (e.g. gimme20%less) or generate a custom coupon code from any specific URL mentioned on the billboard. The URL can be a purchased domain, a landing page on your site, or a easily readable shortened link. This enables you to distinguish between regular web traffic and traffic from your billboard. Numerous softwares and online services will allow you to easily generate custom coupons through the URL. If you are sending the billboard reader to a URL with a custom coupon, it is recommended to have them visit a custom landing that is blocked from search engines. Once people use their coupons, you are able to retreive information on traffic sources using the database. It is imperative that you make sure that the coupon codes can be tracked. To get a true ROI on that particular segment of your campaign, ensure that it is not made available in other forms of media (e.g. search engine, word of mouth, etc).

          Bob Becklund Pilots State's UAS Technology   
By The Bismarck Tribune
When the North Dakota Air National Guard’s F-16 fighter jets were growing old and in need of replacement, the organization made a choice — one that is taking North Dakota into the lead of the unmanned aerial systems industry.

Bob Becklund found himself at the head of that change.

As the United States had stopped buying fighter jets and the older jets handed down to guard units were becoming difficult to find, the air guard made strategic plans to look for new missions, according to Becklund.

“We were the best fighter unit in the U.S. … but still there weren’t aircraft,” he said.

That is when the MQ-1 Predator and RQ-4 Global Hawk came down from the clouds.

“We thought here’s a new technology that will be relevant and required forever,” Becklund said, and the air guard started seeking them out as replacements for the aging F-16s.

In 2004, Becklund was wing commander, overseeing a base realignment and closure in 2005. He then helped pick crews for UAS training and the unit earned a good reputation for UAS operations.

This would lead Becklund to an invitation to serve on a UAS task force to the Pentagon. One year on the task force turned into three before he returned to North Dakota.

Around that same time, Federal Aviation Administration-mandated UAS test sites were being picked around the country. Becklund answered North Dakota’s ad for an executive director of a test site. When hired, his job was to do his best to make sure North Dakota was selected for a site.

When he succeeded, he became executive director of the Northern Plains UAS Test Site in Grand Forks, at the helm of UAS industry in the state. This time, he is leading research that will help make a technology mostly dominated by the military become commercially viable.

The next step

To help advance research and development, Becklund said he would like to create an environment for the larger unmanned aircraft flown at Northern Plains to fly without a chase plane as is required under FAA rules.

The test site is working closely with the FAA on this, and if successful, it would be the only place in the country to allow it, according to Becklund, adding that Northern Plains already has FAA approval to fly UAS anywhere in the state and at night.

Becklund said the chase plane plan is aggressive but necessary for technological advancement and he thinks North Dakota has the right tools to make it work. Because of the Grand Forks Air Force Base, North Dakota has access to high-end radar that can spot any aircraft flying in the area. That technology would keep UAS flights without a chase plane safe. In addition, Grand Forks is the only place in the U.S. where the Predator, Global Hawk and MQ-9 Reaper are flying together.Advertisement (1 of 1): 0:13Flying with a chase plane is cost prohibitive and the only way to make UAS commercially viable is to move beyond line-of-sight flights, according to Becklund, who said allowing in-field research to determine how this would be done safely would be beneficial to the industry and FAA.

Eventually, that research could transfer to the rest of the country, even where radar isn’t available. Becklund said this could be done through cooperative air space, where all aircraft flying would emit a signal rather than allowing some, such as gliders and aerial sprayers, to fly using visual flight rules.

While that may sound bold because it will cost money to institute, at the same time, it will greatly increase safety, Becklund said.

“There would never be mid-air collisions,” said Becklund, pointing out that secure and reliable communications links are the key and the research conducted at Northern Plains could help make that possible.

Becklund said the challenge now is there are no standards so companies don’t know to what specifications to build.

“Here in North Dakota, we can do research on those things,” he said.

2017 and beyond

The test site is set to expire in 2017, but Becklund said the North Dakota congressional delegation is working to extend it. With or without the federal extension, he is confident testing will continue as North Dakota has long invested in UAS technology and research — about $30 million to date.

“I think North Dakota needs to continue its investment; we’re out in front of it all. We need to stay in front of it and look to the future,” said Becklund, who describes the UAS expertise that has been developed in the state as “incredible” and will give North Dakota a seat at the table in deciding how to regulate the industry.

“It’s really exciting to be part of the new age of aviation,” said the former fighter pilot who has followed the industry from the cockpit to the remote control.

Becklund said, when he was flying, the planes were loud and highly visible. With UAS, many air guard missions are flown in secret on the other side of the world.

“But the cool factor is just off the charts,” said Becklund, adding that the air guard provides lots of opportunity and training, pays for college and can land airmen a full-time job upon graduation.

“Think where this could go,” said Becklund, pointing out that one day there may be a cheaper replacement for satellites. “That’s kind of fun stuff. I can’t think of where all it might go. I just know it’s a good thing.”

“I think North Dakota needs to continue its investment; we’re out in front of it all. We need to stay in front of it and look to the future.” — Bob Becklund

          Dalrymple Welcomes News of State's Record Population   
By ND Governor's Office
Gov. Jack Dalrymple today welcomed news that North Dakota’s population has reached an all-time high of 756,927, an increase of 16,887 residents since last year’s U.S. Census Bureau count. North Dakota’s population has grown by 2.5 percent since last year, the largest percent increase among all states, the Census Bureau reported today.
 
“It’s great to see that our economic growth continues to keep North Dakotans home and that we are attracting new residents who come for good jobs, a strong economy and our great quality of life,” Gov. Jack Dalrymple said. “After decades of out-migration and population decline, North Dakota’s economy continues to drive a dramatic shift in our demographics.  North Dakota’s population is growing, getting younger and our citizens are taking advantage of more opportunities than ever before.”
 
In the early 2000s, North Dakota was one of only a few states with a declining and aging population. The state began to reverse that trend in 2004, with an estimated population of about 645,000 residents. Since then, North Dakota’s population has grown every year, with a total increase of more than 110,000 residents.
 
The in-migration of adults of child-bearing age is playing a major role in the state’s current population trend, said Kevin Iverson, manager of the North Dakota Census Office.  In just the past 10 years, the number of births in North Dakota has steadily increased from about 8,380 to last year’s birth count of 11,352.
 
Additionally, North Dakota is becoming younger, with the state’s median age dropping in 2014 to 34.9 years of age – two years younger than the median age recorded just 10 years ago, Iverson said. North Dakota’s median age is now the 4th youngest in the nation. In 2010, North Dakota’s median age ranked 24th, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
 
Driving North Dakota’s positive demographic trends are the state’s economy and plentiful job opportunities.  North Dakota’s economy continues to be among the nation’s strongest.  In the past five years, the state’s economy has averaged an annual growth rate of nearly 12 percent, four times that of the national economy.
 
North Dakota’s unemployment rate of 2.7 percent is the nation’s lowest.  The state has created more than 123,000 net jobs since 2000, and employers currently report having nearly 16,000 open positions.
 
Personal incomes in North Dakota have also improved dramatically in just the past 10 years.  In 2004, the state’s per-capita personal income was below the national average and ranked 38th among all states. Last year, North Dakota’s per-capita personal income ranked 4th highest among all states at 121 percent of the national average.
 
The North Dakota Census Office has developed charts with more detail about North Dakota’s demographics.  The information is available at: http://www.commerce.nd.gov/census/Demographics/PopulationGraphs/

          Dalrymple Highlights North Dakota's Economic Growth, Vision for Future at Economic Summit in Fargo   
By ND Governor's Office
BISMARCK, N.D. – Gov. Jack Dalrymple, along with the Greater North Dakota Chamber and Valley Prosperity Partnership, today hosted the Governor’s Summit on Economic Growth to showcase the state’s economic diversity and generate ideas for future growth. The one-day event was held at the Radisson Hotel in downtown Fargo and brought together business leaders and entrepreneurs from across the state.
 
Dalrymple kicked off the summit by touting North Dakota’s historic economic success and laying out his vision for future growth and opportunity. He highlighted the economic development strategies that over the past decade have fueled the state’s economic growth and diversification, including an emphasis on job creation, building a strong business climate and targeting key industry sectors such as value-added agriculture, technology, advanced manufacturing and aviation. 
 
The Governor cited North Dakota’s leadership position in several national rankings and studies, including best-run state, growth performer, housing growth and best state for young adults. He stated how North Dakota’s economic growth outpaced all other states in 2014, according to information released by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), a position the state has held for four of the past five years. He also focused on North Dakota’s low unemployment, population growth and how the state’s median age is getting younger.

“North Dakota’s economic growth stems from nearly every business sector, with no single industry telling the whole story of our state’s progress,” said Dalrymple. “We have worked hard to diversify our economy and grow our targeted business sectors, while capitalizing on emerging technologies and industries. This summit is a great opportunity to showcase our strengths and successes, and identify visionary and innovative ideas that will chart a course for North Dakota’s future growth.” 
 
During his remarks, Dalrymple spelled out his vision for future growth that includes building on the state’s economic development efforts and focusing on three key themes: people, places and opportunities. This vision will take North Dakota’s progress to the next level with an emphasis on quality of life and livability of communities, attracting a workforce to drive the state’s economic growth and making the state an obvious choice for those seeking diverse opportunities.
 
The Governor’s vision for growth includes such focuses as child care, affordable housing, education, outdoor recreation, Main Street revival, infrastructure enhancements, access to colleges and universities, and capital for business start-ups.
 
In addition to Dalrymple, the summit featured speakers and panelists covering topics such as attracting and retaining a workforce, accessing capital, and fostering innovation and entrepreneurial activity. Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley moderated a panel of business executives outlining a vision for building a workforce for tomorrow’s industries. The event also included a keynote by Joel Kotkin, an internationally-recognized authority on global, economic, political and social trends. He is the author of the widely praised new book, The New Class Conflict, which describes the changing dynamics of class in America.
 
Other statistics Dalrymple cited detailing the state’s economic progress included:
  • During the 2015 Legislative Session, Dalrymple signed into law an additional $397 million in tax relief. Overall, since 2009, he has worked with the Legislature to reduce property and income taxes by more than $4.2 billion. 
  • Over the past five years, North Dakota’s per capita personal income has increased nearly 42 percent, bringing North Dakota to 121 percent of the national average, according to the BEA.
  • North Dakota had $5.3 billion worth of exports in 2014, an increase of $4.3 billion since 2004 when the total value of exports was $1 billion.
  • Since 2004, North Dakota has created 123,600 net new jobs, an increase of 36.6 percent.
  • North Dakota is ranked first in growth in the number, employment and revenues of women-owned firms since 1997.

A BROADWAY MUSICAL, BY Charles Strouse, Lee Adams, AND William F. Brown, JULY 16 AT 7PM & 9:30PM:

From idealistic playwrights to jaded theatre party ladies, from egotistical stars to meek directors, A Broadway Musical, written by the Tony Award-winning team behind Bye Bye Birdie, lovingly spoofs all those crazy people who make up that business called "show." In 1964, Charles Strouse and Lee Adams adapted Clifford Odets' play Golden Boy for Rat Packer, Sammy Davis, Jr. The trials and tribulations of creating Golden Boy became the springboard for Strouse and Adams' 1978 musical, A Broadway Musical. Despite a fantastic score, and a witty book by The Wiz's William F. Brown, A Broadway Musical closed on its opening night and has not been heard by New York audiences since that fateful performance in 1978. Now, for one night only, Feinstein's/54 Below will take everyone back to 1978 and give audiences a second chance to hear what only a few got to experience on December 21st, 1978 when we present A Broadway Musical in concert. Directed and Produced by Robert W. Schneider.

Starring Major Attaway (Aladdin), Glory Crampton (Rothschild & Sons), Clifton Davis (Aladdin, TV's Amen), Sarah Routh Ellis (A Gentleman's Guide To Love and Murder), Jason Graae (Forever Plaid & International Cabaret Artist), Kyle Scatliffe (The Color Purple), and Neva Small (Henry, Sweet Henry).

And starring from the original cast Gwen Arment, Maris Clement, Michael Kubala, and Larry Marshall (The Color Purple).

Also featuring Roger Dawley, Sean Green, Kyle Javon, Mychael Leverage, Lethabo Moffome, Paris Alexander Nesbitt, Ruby Shadley, Rebecca Spigelman, and Alexia Sielo.

A range of sleepwear, lingerie and loungerie in soft practical viscose of bamboo with contrasting soft stretch lace trim

bamboo is a soft wood pulp fiber that is known for being cool to the touch and very soft. This textile is very washable and holds it's shape well but we've noticed that it "grows" with hanging and may need to be hemmed over time, one can also fold it and put it in a drawer, it keeps fresh nicely and is a dream to iron.

The trim in this group is the "Jester" lace from another range, it's a very soft supple lace that is slightly delicate but we find that it also launders easily and is remarkably durable for it's delicate appearance.

Mix and match to create your own set or wear separately

95/5 viscose of bamboo/spandex
95/5 nylon/spandex lace and trims

machine wash cold
tumble dry delicate
steam iron low

          Comment on How Much Rent Can I Afford on My Hourly Pay? by Claudia   
Ugh this is so frustrating, based on this chart I can't even afford a studio in the worst part of my city or surroundings. I make $26.55/hr. I was looking at a $1,750/mo 1 br condo 550sq ft close to work with most utilities included. Except for gas/electricity, entertaiment. I also have another option which is further away at $1,470 but i will have to pay more due to distance from work and family, such as gas and bridge tolls. This is so unfair!

          End-of-season thoughts on the Capitals - The Beginning   
So that’s it.  It’s over.  For the first time since the spring of 2007, the Washington Capitals are not in the NHL playoffs.  It’s an odd feeling; one that I felt was inevitable at some point over the last three seasons, and now that it has, it’s quite empty.  But it’s here.  And now, it’s time to fix it.

Here are some (very early and preliminary) thoughts about this team and how to do just that.

I’m not going to go in to deep detail over what finally sunk this team to the level they are at right now.  I’ve written about their problems ad nauseam over the last three years but especially this year and by now, you know what did them in: bad possession, bad coaching, bad lineup decisions, and poor roster construction.  This is nothing new if you’ve read anything I have written over the last 24 months.
In reality, this team should have counted itself very lucky over the last two seasons, but particularly last year, to make the playoffs.  It was their failure to realize this that has ultimately led us to this moment.  Instead of being proactive and trying to fix a flawed team with deep issues, the cracks were papered over with rhetoric, public relations work, and t-shirts celebrating yet another Southeast Division Championship.

Now that the team has finally missed the playoffs for the first time since “the rebuild,” an opportunity has presented itself for real change.  This means several things, including but not limited to new people in charge, up and down the totem pole.  It means a new coach/coaching staff and a new general manager.  Names I would consider for each position, respectively: Guy Boucher, Peter Laviolette, Dan Bylsma/Barry Trotz (should they become available); Jason Botterill, Al Macisaac, Wayne Thomas, Joe Will.

Central to the next regime and whoever runs it will be a return to what made the Capitals successful between 2008 and 2011.  What made them successful was a team commitment to possession, constant attack, speed, and scoring.  The roster was flush with offensive talent and it had a coaching staff that believed in the elements of successful hockey in today’s NHL.  The results were wonderful.  Yes, I know – the team didn’t get it done in the playoffs.  That doesn’t mean they weren’t successful, or their strategy didn’t have merit.  They were, and it did.  It’s not a coincidence that the team has gotten progressively worse – and alarmingly so – since Bruce Boudreau was fired.  And how about those Anaheim Ducks?

On to personnel – the Brooks Laich situation is quite the pickle.  A beloved member of the franchise and among its most marketable and personable, Laich has been a mainstay on this team for the better part of a decade.  But now he’s hurt, has been for most of the last two seasons, and often struggles to produce even when he is healthy.  If he’s healthy, the Capitals would be well served to exercise their second compliance buyout on him.  If not, they would be well served to try and find a trade partner for a team trying to get to the cap floor (Laich has a no-trade clause, but it is only five teams long).  His cap hit, even when healthy, far outweighs his value at this point for a cap team.  That $4.5 million off the cap for the next three seasons would be great.

Get rid of the right wing logjam.  Tom Wilson shouldn’t have been on this team at all this season, but in limited action this season he has proven to be a very talented player with a lot of upside despite being historically buried to an almost comical level.  That means a right wing has got to go, likely in a trade.  Glancing at the depth chart, I could see a player like Troy Brouwer being flipped along with a prospect or a pick for defensive help.  Teams are likely to see Brouwer’s 20-plus goals and jump at it, willing to give up something sizable, like a young defenseman, in return.  The same could be said for Joel Ward.  Sell high, folks.

Re-sign Mikhail Grabovski.  This is basic.  Grabo has been injured for a lot of this season but when healthy has been as advertised by just about everyone outside of those in the Toronto mainstream media.  He could be a big piece going forward and plays an important position.  In conjunction with this, I’d also like to get Eric Fehr playing wing again and bring in another center.  If Toronto is still interested in dumping Nazem Kadri…

In order to keep Grabovski, Dustin Penner has probably got to go and Jaroslav Halak has definitelygot to go, simply because of numbers.  Penner is a fine player and deserved better here but I have a feeling that GMs will pay up for him.  Halak just isn’t needed.  He will require a multi-year contract at a dollar figure north of $4m a season.  No thank you.


In conclusion, this scratches only the surface.  There are a lot of things that need to be addressed here, and I didn’t even mention the biggest one in some new defensive players.  There is a lot of work to be done, and the next few weeks will be very interesting.

          Report Card: Braden Holtby   
As the 2011-12 season has come to a close, the time has come to evaluate what it meant for the Capitals, both as a team and as individuals.  As such, as the summer progresses, I will be writing a report card, or individual evaluation, for each player who played in 9 (~10%) of the team's games, or 4 playoff games. Next up is goaltender Braden Holtby, who finished his third professional season in the Capitals' organization on this past campaign.

Season Summary: Holtby struggled down in Hershey bigtime at the beginning of this season, putting up poor numbers through the first half of the year.  When he was called up to DC in February, he was hammered to the tune of five goals on 35 shots against San Jose, but just like last year, his second recall was much more successful.  Pressed in to action because of injuries and poor performances, Holtby collected seven of a possible ten points in the games he started in March and April and helped get the Capitals to the playoffs.  Overall, he finished with a 4-2-1 record, 2.50 goals against average, .922 save percentage, and one shutout in seven games (six starts). Grade: B+
Role Play: In the regular season, Holtby did just about everything you could ask from a rookie.  With the exception of two games, he was more than solid in regular season action and helped Washington pick up critical points in big games down the stretch.  I don't know what else you could want from a guy who entered the season third on the organizational goaltending depth chart.  Though he didn't play many games, his impact was significant when his team needed him - something Michal Neuvirth and Tomas Vokoun cannot say. Grade: A


Playoffs: Again forced to start because of injuries, Holtby shocked the hockey world by carrying the Capitals almost singlehandedly to a victory over the Cup champion Bruins and pushing the top-seeded Rangers to seven games.  In his 14 postseason starts, Holtby recorded a 7-7 record, 1.95 GAA, and .935 save percentage, great numbers for anyone, but especially a rookie against the East's top two teams.  He was mortal at times, such as game one against New York, but in the end, he was the reason the Caps got as far as they did with some highlight-reel saves.  I was very impressed, once again, with his play. Grade: A+
Future Potential: Despite his exceptional playoffs, Holtby should not be the number one goalie next year, nor is his performance a reason to trade Michal Neuvirth.  Make no mistake: Holtby is a supremely talented goalie and he has excelled at the NHL level.  But the sophomore slump will almost surely come, like it does with all young goalies, and with 35 games of NHL experience, I am not ready to give Holtby a 60 game workload over the course of a full season.  You shouldn't either.  He may prove me wrong, but he and Neuvirth should fight it out for starts until a number one is decided upon near the playoffs.  Nevertheless, he is a special talent and I think he will be a very good goalie at this level, as do many scouts. Grade: A

The next report card will feature winger Jason Chimera.

          A BRITISH STORY:   
American Culture: A Story (Bruce Frohnen, May 2017, Imaginative Conservative)

[I]n the interest of brevity, I will skip just a bit further forward, to Mount Sinai. Following Russell Kirk,[1] we can pick the story up here because it set the Israelites apart from their neighbors in a politically crucial way. I refer, of course, to the handing down by God of the Ten Commandments; a transformative, defining moment for the Israelites, and for those whom they influenced.

Some point out that the Ten Commandments were not all that different from other codes, like the Code of Hammurabi. But that is not the point. The point is that it was Hammurabi's code, a law handed down by a supposedly sacred political power, who saw himself as the creator of right and wrong--just as, I would argue, our liberal friends tend to see both law and government. Moses, on the other hand, gave the Israelites God's law, and thereby established a higher law tradition, according to which worldly governors can be judged by standards higher than their own will.

Again in the interest of brevity, I will just mention some other parts of the story: man's discovery of the powers of reason in Greece; our training in the virtues of republican government in Rome; I even will skip over the utterly transformative moment in a later Jerusalem, when God saved man's transcendent humanity by Himself becoming Man, and, through His death and resurrection, making clear our duty to love one another as ourselves. I instead will move to a lesser-known part of the story, set in early medieval Rome. For it was here that the Pope won the struggle with the Holy Roman Emperor, and gained the right to appoint bishops, which formerly had been appointed by the emperor himself.

So what?

So, this victory institutionalized Mount Sinai. It set up a separate religious authority, independent of the state, which would tell kings they were behaving wrongly, even excommunicate them and tell their subjects they owed them no allegiance. That investiture struggle institutionalized the higher law tradition and made natural law the standard of all governments and societies in the west. It made possible the Great Charter of Britain, which guaranteed the rights of the church, of the barons, and of the towns, in the face of a centralizing king. And that charter--and others like it on the continent--made possible the flourishing of towns, guilds, parishes, families, and other associations, which gained their own chartered rights, along with the ability and will to defend them.

Strong associations meant a multiplicity of authorities, protecting both communal and independent action through legal and customary rights. They also constituted a diversity of groups within which one acted, and to which one could look for protection. This diversity, these groups, and these rights came into bad odor in the era of absolutism and centralization. But, for a variety of reasons we need not go into, in Britain in particular there was resistance to this centralizing trend, which said, "There can be only one sovereign, one source of power and authority." Instead, there continued a healthy--though unfortunately difficult and at times bloody--competition among social and political authorities.

It was in the midst of this competition that the first settlers came to America. Many of them were seeking money. They had troubles. Others, for a long time the more successful settlers, were seeking to set up communities of faith and virtue, to follow the way of their Lord in common. Most of the colonies had their own charters, as well as an ocean keeping British authority safely distant, and allowing them to become self-governing local societies, themselves made up of largely self-governing communities. Self-government became second nature.

There was an abortive attempt to change all this, which we tend to forget, but which earlier Americans kept vividly in their minds. In 1688, as he was trying to consolidate power in Britain, James II also sought to consolidate power in America, erasing borders, dismissing legislatures, and assuming full sovereignty. The colonists resisted, fiercely. I skip over the rather nasty anti-Catholicism that was a part of this resistance because that is what adults do; because the fact that a sin was involved does not mean that it was either the cause of, or caused by, the event. The point is, the Glorious Revolution became a defining moment for Americans because it was not simply a British event; it also was American. The Glorious Revolution of 1688 showed, to both peoples, the increasing power of charters, and of petitions of grievances charging kings with violating inherited rights, to defend pre-existing ways of life.


          The enduring structure of the Federal Reserve System: Is it time to redraw the map?   

The enduring structure of the Federal Reserve System: Is it time to redraw the map?

Matthew Jaremski, David Wheelock 25 October 2015

The Federal Reserve System was established in 1914 as a confederation of 12 regional districts, each with its own Reserve Bank. A Reserve Bank Organisation Committee (RBOC), comprised of the Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of Agriculture, and Comptroller of the Currency, was appointed to select the cities for Reserve Banks and to set district boundaries. The Reserve Banks remain in the 12 cities selected by the RBOC and, except for a few minor adjustments made early in the system’s history, the borders of the Reserve Districts have never been changed.

The selection of cities for Reserve Banks was controversial in 1914 and remains so today. Seen in Figure 1, the RBOC placed four Reserve Banks within just a few hundred miles of one another in the Northeast, and two Reserve Banks in Missouri; and yet single Reserve Banks serve vast territories in the western two-thirds of the nation. Commentators have long called for a redistribution of Reserve Banks, particularly in light of the shift of US population and economic activity to the South and West that has occurred since 1914 (e.g., Bordo 2015). Richard Shelby (R-AL), chairman of the US Senate Banking Committee, introduced legislation on May 12, 2015 calling for the establishment of an independent commission to review and suggest possible changes to the structure of the Federal Reserve System, including to the number and location of Federal Reserve Banks and district boundaries.

Source: RBOC (1914).

It has long been alleged that political considerations strongly influenced the selection of cities for Reserve Banks (e.g., Willis 1923), though recent scholarship has largely concluded that most of cities chosen for Reserve Banks could be justified on economic grounds (e.g., Binder and Spindel 2013, McAvoy 2006). The Federal Reserve System was established to bring stability to the US banking system, primarily by providing a ready source of liquidity to the commercial banks that joined the Fed System. The Reserve Banks were to be on the front lines, holding the reserves of their member banks, lending to them in emergencies, and operating the payments system. In exchange for purchasing stock in and maintaining a reserve deposit with their local Reserve Bank, members received access to the Fed’s discount window and other services, were paid a dividend, and had a vote in the selection of the Reserve Bank’s board of directors.

Because the Fed’s member banks were both the primary customers and the stockholders of the Reserve Banks, the RBOC gave them a strong voice in choosing where the Reserve Banks were to be located. All national banks (i.e., banks with charters issued by the federal government) were asked to name their top three choices for the location of their Reserve Bank, and those votes appear to have strongly influenced the committee’s decisions. In recent research, we estimate several multivariate regressions of the selection of cities for Reserve Banks and branches, and find that the votes largely explain these selections (Jaremski and Wheelock 2015).1 Further, using voting data aggregated at the county level, we find that the votes go a long way to explaining the boundaries of Federal Reserve districts. Even decisions that today seem questionable, such as the placement of two Reserve Banks in Missouri, seem less so in light of the preferences expressed by national banks at the time (Wheelock 2015).

Our research attempts to explain the votes of national banks for the location of Reserve Banks. Although the votes of individual banks are not available, we find that county-level vote totals are explained well by established correspondent banking relationships. In short, banks appear to have voted for cities where they already had correspondent ties. Cities whose banks already provided services to large numbers of national banks tended to receive more votes, and thus were more likely to be awarded a Reserve Bank or branch office than were other cities.

To a large extent, the Federal Reserve System was placed over the old correspondent banking system it was meant to replace. The major cities in the Northeast—especially New York City, but also Boston, Philadelphia, and Baltimore—had long been important correspondent banking centres. Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City and Minneapolis were important banking centres in the Midwest, and San Francisco was dominant on the West Coast. All of these cities, save for Baltimore, was given a Reserve Bank.2

More Reserve Banks were placed in the eastern half of the nation than in the west for two reasons:

  1. Eastern cities received far more votes from national banks than cities in the West and South; and,
  2. The Federal Reserve Act stipulated that each Reserve Bank have a minimum capitalisation paid in by its member banks.

Given the sparse population of national banks (and people) in the South and West, shown in Figure 2, Federal Reserve districts in those regions had to be larger than those of the Midwest and Northeast simply to amass enough capital to organise a Reserve Bank. Further, the RBOC may have put more Reserve Banks in the Northeast to reduce the dominance of the banks in New York City, the nation’s financial capital.

Figure 2. National bank locations in 1914

Source: Comptroller of the Currency (1915).

Should there be more Reserve Banks in the West and South?

The question remains whether there should now be more Reserve Banks in the West or South, either by moving some from the Northeast or establishing new districts. The shift of population and economic activity to the West and South since 1914 suggests that were the locations of Reserve Banks and district boundaries set today, the Federal Reserve System map would look very different than the one shown in Figure 1.

The Federal Reserve map has not changed significantly in 100 years, but both the mission and the technology of central banking have changed dramatically. In the early days, when the Fed’s interactions with its member banks were conducted mainly in person or through the mail, minimising transportation times between Reserve Bank offices and member banks was crucial for performing the system’s mission as lender of last resort and for operating the payments system efficiently.

Today most of the interactions between the Reserve Banks and commercial banks are electronic, so close proximity to a Reserve Bank or branch is no longer important for most member banks. Moreover, the Reserve Banks now play a significant role in monetary policymaking—a concept not contemplated by the Fed’s founders.

Concluding remarks

Although the Fed’s decentralised structure arguably promotes good policymaking by helping to ensure that different points of view are heard and different regions of the country are represented, modern communications technology reduces the need for physical proximity to a Reserve Bank.

Probably more important than the physical locations of Reserve Banks is the distribution of monetary policymaking authority on the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC). Some argue that the Reserve Banks outside of New York should have a stronger voice on the FOMC (e.g., Fisher 2015), while others propose to weaken or even remove altogether the Reserve Banks from monetary policymaking. Those who favour a continued or expanded role for the Reserve Banks contend that the system’s regional diversity and political independence contribute to better policymaking. A system that is responsive to differing economic conditions that might exist across the regions of a large and diverse nation was certainly a principle on which the Federal Reserve was established.

          AP FACT CHECK: When a swoopy line on a chart misleads   
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Oh, those charts....
          Markets Are Still Dancing To The QE Two-Step...But Is the Music About To Stop?   

Authored by Chris Hamilton via Econimica blog,

Just a quick thought about what is driving the US stock market.  The chart below shows the Wilshire 5000 (representing all publicly traded US equities in red), the Federal Reserve balance sheet (black), and excess reserves held at the Federal Reserve Bank by the largest of private(?) banks (likely a majority of these reserves held by foreign banks).  What you may notice is the rise in equities since '09 correlating with the rise in the Federal Reserves balance sheet until QE ended.  Then a momentary pause in equities during 2015, and another strong leg higher since.  That strong leg higher correlates nicely to the drawdown in the excess reserves held at the FRB, particularly since 2016.

The chart below shows these dynamics since 2008.  The Federal Reserves purchase of $3.6 trillion in new "assets"...and the continual rise in excess reserves banks hold at the Fed until September, 2014.  As the reserves and QE ceased rising and were essentially flat, the market began rolling over.  However, by late 2015 banks began withdrawing those excess reserves and putting them to work...and the equity markets positively responded.

I've been marching in gay pride parades since they were called gay rights marches.

I was in the first ever to be held in the state of Iowa, in June 1981.

When I lived in California and New York, from 1985 to 2001, I marched almost every year, either with the Metropolitan Community Church or with the gay synagogue.

 It was the biggest event of the year: we spent months deciding which group to march with, working on banners and floats, charting out the route, making plans to meet friends afterwards, at the festival.

The day of the parade,we would show up at the staging ground on Crescent Heights an hour early (walk, if you could), dressed lightly -- Los Angeles in June is hot!

It was fun to be walking down the streets we drove down every day, with a wall of spectators on all sides, more gay men and lesbians than we ever knew existed.

The hetero screamers, outraged by our existence, with their signs saying we were going to hell, were confined to a small area next to the Rage, where we could ignore them easily.

Then came the festival in West Hollywood Park: 20 or 30 booths from every gay organization you had ever heard of, and some you hadn't: Dignity (for gay Catholics), Frontrunners (for runners), Gay Fathers, the Gay Asian-Pacific Alliance.  A few food carts, whatever vendors were brave and non-homophobic enough to come, selling ice cream, corn dogs, and Thai food on a stick.

A huge crowd of gay men and lesbians, some you would never see anywhere else.  A chance to catch up with friends you'd lost track of.

Acres upon acres of shirtless musclemen.  Nonstop cruising: it wasn't a successful pride festival unless you got at least three phone numbers.

Hetero screamers milled about with pamphlets about how we were going to hell, so the rule was: never accept anything someone tries to hand to you.  Representatives of gay organizations will sit at their booths with brochures for you to pick up.





In the evening there was a round of parties and dances, with a lot more cruising, and there was always that one guy who was completely nude in a public place.

At work the next day, you could always tell who was gay: they were sunburned.

In Florida I didn't go, and in 2005 I moved to the Straight World, where Gay Pride was a small, understated affair.  A barbecue in the park for about 20 people.  A parade with about 20 banners but no floats that marched down one side of the street, the other still open to gawking traffic.

I haven't been to a big-city Gay Pride for 16 years.

They've changed.

Last weekend I went to Minneapolis for Twin Cities Pride.  Due to a GPS problem, my wisdom tooth extraction, and oversleeping, my friend and I missed the Parade, but we went to the festival in Loring Park, near downtown.


1. It's not Gay Pride or LGBT Pride, it's just Pride. It's rather annoying to be erased from your own festival.

2. Instead of 20 or 30 booths, there were over 200.  Most were not gay-specific.  Banks, credit unions, colleges (not college LGBT groups, just "why you should come here"), sheets and towels, a service that would clean your rain gutter.

Instead of two or three food trucks, there were about fifty.  No longer do the organizers have to scrounge around to find enough vendors willing to be seen with us.

3. The rule about not accepting anything someone tries to hand you was gone.  Everyone tried to hand us something: beads, buttons, bags, brochures.  I didn't take anything -- force of habit.

Fortunately, I didn't see any screamers.

4.  But the festival wasn't for us anymore.  Over half of the crowd consisted of male-female couples, often with kids in tow, and most of the rest were groups of women  A scattering of gay men.  

5. The acres and acres of beefcake were gone. Very few of the men were shirtless, and very few were buffed.  At least I can say that I have a better physique than 99% of the men at a Gay Pride Festival.

6. The cruising was gone, too.  The few times I got cruised, it was by a woman or a teenage boy.  I get more action at the doctor's office.

Afterwards we walked back across Lyndale Avenue, through the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.  A large Muslim family was photographing each other in front of the cherry spoon statue.  College kids were playing miniature golf on a weird course with brillo pads and maps of downtown.  There was a baseball game going on at the stadium.

They were half a mile from Gay Pride.  They didn't know, or they didn't care.

"Gay Pride has changed,"  I told my friend.

"For better or worse?"

"I'm not sure."

One of the college boys playing miniature golf looked over at me with a cruisy glance.

Some things don't change.

          Broncos Vs Chiefs - Game One   
After coming home for the week and handling the Chargers. The Broncos are on the road again heading to Arrowhead stadium to play the embarrassing dead last Chiefs. For a team that not so long ago was young and on the up, they have fallen oh so very far. The blame can directly lay at the feet of HC Crennel and GM Pioli for putting together a team that has to choose between Brady Quinn and Matt Cassel at quarterback. Then again this could all be a poly to suck as much as possible to get the first round pick in the draft, ie the Colts.

All of that though doesn’t really matter to us. Watching the Chiefs get spanked in Arrowhead is enjoyable enough.

Other News
Depending on were you read it McGahee is out 4-6 or 6-8 weeks. I think the 6-8 is more likely. Another link, an another.

The remaining backs talk about being in for some extra action.

The Broncos will be taking a look at a few backs to see if there are any nice replacements.

Seems we are staying put on the backs.

Though first reported he wouldn't be placed on IR, Mcgahee is now on the returning IR.

Andy Reid is moving on from the Eagles if the report is to be believed.

Drew Litton had this great thanksgiving picture. Which reminds me that everyone have a fun and safe thanksgiving.



Manning moves into spot number two for all time touchdowns.

Ed Reed was suspened, then he wasn't.

The Steelers sign two, in Hoyer and Burress.

Raiders cut Aaron Curry.

Some young QBs will continue to start. Foles in Philly and Kaepernick for San Fran.

Peyton is 'Freaking Historcal', says John Fox.

Miller gets a weekly honor.

Photos from Thursday's practice. Notice Moreno was so happy this week he didn't wear pants to traning.

Quinn gets the start for the Chiefs this week, ahahaha.

Porter is healthy and will travel to KC.

Some funnies of Brady Quinn.



Why to watch?
The Broncos have a real chance to drop 40-50 on the Chiefs (if the coaches let them). But remember the Chiefs in Kansas have always been a problem for us.

Inside Story
The big story for us is the running back situation. With McGahee injured the dynamics and rolls of the remaining players are still to be decided. Will Hillman be forced to run between the tackles?

The interesting aspect of this storyline is Knowshon Moreno. Moreno, after riding the bench since week two comes back against his favourite team in the Chiefs. Moreno’s form against the Chiefs has been nothing short of amazing. He had 4 carries for 52 yards last year before he got hurt. In 2010 he had games of 22 carries for 106 yards and 23 carries for 161 yards with a few receptions in each. 2009, his first season, was more of the same, 21 carries for 86 yards and two TDs and 14 carries for 50 yards and two TDs. I for one am hoping his form against KC continues and he picks up his game like another former ‘bust’ from his draft.

For the Chiefs, I will be interested to see what the fans come up with next to show their ‘displeasure’ towards the KC Staff. Dressing in all black and flying planes over the stadium trailing messages hasn’t worked. So what’s next? The KC crowd could stay at home and leave the stadium empty. Maybe then management will take the hint.

Match Ups
Pick a spot on the depth chart and you have found a favourable matchup for the Broncos. Unless you picked Lance Ball...shame on you.

Jokes aside, one player I want to see return back to form is Eric Decker. Hook my Fantasy team up sexy 'stache!

          Training Camp Update Three - Broncos prepare for Bears   
Another three days of training camp are in the books, as well as the annual scrimmage at Mile High report. And now the first preseason game is drawing near. The Broncos play the Bears on Thursday night. But first notes from camp...

Day Eight
Thursday morning’s practice was once again open to the public, and fans showed up in record number — the 5,034 in attendance set another Dove Valley record. It’s the third time an attendance record has been broken during this year’s training camp, and the fans in attendance certainly got a show.

Injuries/Absences:
Yesterday, Head Coach John Fox reported that wide receiver Eric Decker had a groin strain. On Thursday, Decker was back on the field in full pads.

Missing from practice were safety Quinton Carter (hamstring and knee) and wide receivers D’Andre Goodwin (foot) and Greg Orton (ankle). Wide receiver Tyler Grisham (knee), running back Ronnie Hillman (hamstring) and tackle Orlando Franklin (concussion) were all on the practice field wearing shorts, but did not participate.

Newly signed wide receiver Cameron Kenney, wearing No. 19, participated in his first practice.

Quick Hits and Playmakers:
There were plenty of playmakers during Thursday’s session, but we’ll start with Thomas. In the first team drill of the morning, Thomas caught a Manning pass on the sideline while on his knees. The very next play was another connection from Manning to Thomas on the sideline. This time, Thomas was on his feet, and he quickly used them to juke a defender and then stiff-arm another to the ground en route to what would have been a long touchdown.

In the next team drill, Manning and Thomas were at it again. After taking the snap, Manning dropped back and fired a pass deep down the middle of the field for Thomas. Safety Rahim Moore was right there in coverage and cornerback Drayton Florence was closing fast, but Thomas leaped up and over Moore to bring down the ball, running the rest of the way for the score. When he got to the back of the end zone, Thomas high-fived a group of young fans. On his way back to the sideline, he was met by cornerback Champ Bailey for another five, and Manning congratulated the receiver with a helmet tap on the sideline.

Defensive end Elvis Dumervil had a "sack" on Manning during team drills, but the play was allowed to continue and Manning still let a pass fly toward Thomas, but Bailey was in tight coverage and forced the incompletion.

Quarterback Adam Weber made his reps count on Thursday, first lofting a deep pass through coverage into the waiting hands of wide receiver Gerell Robinson for a big gain. At the very end of practice during a red-zone drill, Weber found a leaping Joel Dreessen in the back corner of the end zone for a touchdown that drew cheers from both the crowd and the offense.

Running back Xavier Omon had a highlight of his own early in team drills, running through two tackles and spinning out of another for a long gain that got the crowd riled up.

Referees watched Thursday’s morning session, signaling when players scored touchdowns and even throwing an occasional flag.

Defensive end Jason Hunter got reps with the first-unit D-line for the second straight practice. Defensive tackle Justin Bannan was also back with the ones, alongside fellow defensive tackle Ty Warren.

As a whole, the offensive line seemed to win Thursday’s one-on-one session against the defensive line, but defensive end Ben Garland still managed a big highlight for the D. He bullied his way past rookie guard/center Philip Blake into the backfield, drawing praise from his defensive teammates.

Day Nine
Friday’s practice was highlighted by a number of big plays on both sides of the ball. Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas continued to get into a rhythm with quarterback Peyton Manning, but in his battle with veteran cornerback Champ Bailey, both players got the best of each other at least once.

Injuries/Absences:
Safety Quinton Carter (hamstring and knee), wide receivers Tyler Grisham (knee) and Greg Orton (ankle), running back Ronnie Hillman (hamstring) and tackle Orlando Franklin (concussion) did not practice Friday.

Head Coach John Fox said that Franklin has been cleared by team doctors.

"We’ll use him sparingly tomorrow," Fox said.

Defensive tackle Justin Bannan left practice early due to a calf injury.

Quick Hits and Playmakers:
In seven-on-seven’s, Bailey jumped up to knock the ball away from Thomas, tipping it into the air. It nearly led to an interception for safety Mike Adams, but he was unable to corral the deflection before it hit the ground.

Bailey also made a nice play in coverage on wide receiver Eric Decker, slapping the ball out of Decker’s hands to prevent a sideline reception.

Later in seven-on-seven’s, Thomas again found himself covered by Bailey, but this time, Thomas hung on for the catch despite a diving effort by Bailey.

Also during team drills, Weber connected with wide receiver Gerell Robinson, who made a quick grab while reaching over his head on the run. Weber quickly went right back to him on the following play, but the two were unable to make it back-to-back completions because cornerback Joshua Moore was able to break up the pass.

A pass near the goal line was deflected by cornerback Chris Harris, but the offense caught a break when tight end Jacob Tamme was able to make the catch anyway in the back of the end zone for a touchdown.

Cornerbacks Drayton Florence, Syd’Quan Thompson and Omar Bolden all had pass breakups in the drill. Bolden’s involved the rookie leaping to swat away a pass intended for Gerell Robinson at the last moment. "Nice job, Omar!" Secondary Coach Ron Milus shouted. "Good play, Omar!"

Friday’s practice saw some chippiness between the offensive and defensive lines. Defensive end Jason Hunter, who has been practicing with the first-team D-line, got into a few shoving matches with offensive linemen during both the line drills and full-team drills. He ended up with his helmet off after one play, and Wesley Woodyard came over to help calm him down. Meanwhile, behind the play, linebacker Von Miller was dancing in what looked to be an effort to cool some of the tension between the lines.

Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway watched parts of practice alongside Coach Fox.

A handful of Broncos alumni, including Billy Thompson and Larry Brunson, watched practice from the sideline. A number of University of Colorado and University of Wyoming football coaches took in the session as well. Former Broncos safety Renaldo Hill, now a coach at Wyoming, was at practice.

Broncos Vs Bears Preview


The Broncos first game of the 2012 season and their first preseason game is against the Bears. But the game and result are not overly important. A win is nice but what we are looking for is the play of our players. The fringe guys and players fighting for a roster spot. Here are some position battles to take notice of during the game.

Also of interest is to take note of the depth chart and where guys are playing. First, Second or Third string.

Quarterback
The number two Quarterback spot is up for grabs. By all accounts Hanie hasn't been playing as well as the other two. Let's see if he can do something.

Runningback
With Fannin injured who will step up and take the positions available behind McGahee. Hillman will probably be held out with his hamstring injury. Meaning Moreno, Omon, Johnson and Ball have to step up and take it to the next level.

Wide Receiver
The fourth and fifth spot is up for grabs. Stokley and Ninja Willis have the inside track but I have heard good things about Gerell Robinson.

Offensive Line
The right tackle position seems to be the only position up for grabs with Franklin out. Can Ryan Harris step it up and push the subject to the coaches?

Tight End
Will Green or Thomas show us anything?

Defensive Tackle
Who is going to win a spot. Unrein and Siliga are the ones that need to have good games.

Defensive End
For me this is all about Hunter Vs Ayers. Who wants that starting spot more? Plus we get our first look at Garland.

Cornerback
That fifth and maybe sixth spot are there for the taking. Watch for Squid to have a big game.

Well enjoy the first Broncos game, I know I will ~ Aussie.

          Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas (NS) Review   
This is a familiar game on this last day of June. It's been reviewed twice across three different platforms so far. This Nintendo Switch review of Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas is now SuperPhillip Central's third look at the game. What can I say -- I'm a sucker for Legend of Zelda-like adventures! Here's my review of Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas for the Nintendo Switch, recently released on the Nintendo eShop for $14.99.

Doesn't out Zelda Zelda, of course, but Oceanhorn is a competent Zelda-like all the same.


Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas has seen a release on multiple platforms in the past (I even reviewed it once on iOS and then a second time on the PlayStation 4), and now this Zelda-inspired game is on the Nintendo Switch. Finally, a game modeled after Zelda releases for a platform made by the company behind the storied franchise.

You might wonder why you would want to even bother with a secondhand Zelda-like when there is the real deal already on the system and in a big way with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. For one, Oceanhorn doesn't have full 3D movement or even an open world. It's an isometric action-adventure game whose areas span multiple elevations and the like, and exploration is occasionally based off of mastering how to cross the undulating areas for treasure and special points of events. The second reason that Oceanhorn might be of interest to not just Zelda fans but those who crave an actual-adventure game on a budget is that the game is overall rather good. It doesn't make huge strides towards shaking things up or pushing innovation, but Oceanhorn is a consistent and enjoyable gaming experience regardless.

The isometric camera angle and focus on elevation gives Oceanhorn a unique hook despite being a Zelda clone.
Oceanhorn starts off relatively slowly, introducing the basics of the game to players on the Hermit's Island. Your nameless hero wakes up and talks to the titular hermit living on the island, and is tasked with reclaiming his father's sword and shield in a nearby cave. The game doesn't hold your hand like many modern Zelda games had done so before Breath of the Wild, so all you really get for help are optional-to-read signposts along the way. The cave itself introduces simplistic puzzles to solve, but really, most, if not all of Oceanhorn's puzzles throughout the entire experience don't revolve around too much critical thinking. You won't really be perplexed all too long at all by any stretch of the imagination. Other than puzzles, mostly block-pushing fare, there's the typical need to find keys to unlock doors to progress. After you've acquired your dad's sword and shield, the true adventure begins.

It's then that you can go to new islands on the uncharted seas. However, there is a severely limited amount of freedom to do so than say another Legend of Zelda game, the GameCube's Wind Waker. Islands aren't automatically available to you on the ocean map. You have to talk to specific characters and examine certain objects to get keywords that will then open up those places for travel on the ocean. Not every island in the game is mandatory, but the story-related ones are usually quite easy to find their keyword to progress. The optional ones take a modest amount of exploring to uncover through the game.

Don't expect to sail with complete freedom in Oceanhorn. It's much more restricted here.
When you do actually set sail, you merely select an island to move across the ocean towards. Thankfully, if you change your mind on your destination, you can alter your course by selecting a new island mid-trip. At the start of the game, there is little interaction while sailing. You just sit and wait until you arrive at your intended island of choice and that's it. Thankfully, your small boat sails at a speedy enough clip that makes each trip serviceable instead of completely tedious. Once you reach a certain point in the game, you get a seed cannon added to the boat, allowing you to shoot at boxes, mines, and enemies in the water for coins, ammo, and other goodies.

Playing Oceanhorn features controls that are responsive but sluggish combat. Sword swipes don't always hit their targets, so you can sometimes be swinging wildly to no effect, only hitting rocks and walls instead of enemies. That said, movement with the Switch's analog stick is great. Much better than what was offered on mobile, and equal in feel to the PlayStation 4 and I imagine any other dedicated gaming system controls. Only one sub-item and one magic spell can be equipped at once, but they can be cycled through with the up and down directions of the left Joycon's d-pad. Sub-items include Zelda mainstays like bombs and a bow and arrow, but also a boot that allows you to jump over square-long chasms with ease.

Combat is sufficient enough, but does have its slight issues.
Oceanhorn has an upgrade system for your character that rewards you with experience for defeating enemies, uncovering experience shards within treasure chests, and completing certain island goals. These are as simple as reading 10 signs, pushing blocks 100 times, mandatory story-related objectives, and more. When you reach enough experience, your level increases, rewarding you with a new bonus such as the ability to carry more bombs and arrows, an increase to your energy meter, and so forth.

Like any dungeon of value, this forest dungeon has its fair share of puzzles and exploration.
Outside of the isometric view and the experience system, Oceanhorn strays a little too closely to The Legend of Zelda series' formula and structure. For instance, the item set is traditional Zelda, dungeons house small keys, puzzles, and most obviously the Master Key that unlocks the dungeon's main treasure and boss door (very Zelda, that one), and you need to acquire four heart containers to increase your health. But some of the influences of Zelda just aren't executed as well, such as many of the boss battles that feel low in polish.

While this one ups the ante puzzle and challenge-wise.
Despite these moments of error, Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas on the Nintendo Switch is an engaging adventure from beginning to end. Obviously it's been good enough and enjoyable enough that I've managed to play through it on three separate occasions on three different platforms. Each time, of course, I see more and more minor flaws that change my overall thoughts of the game. One part that remains great to me is the presentation with a lovely soundtrack mostly by Kalle Ylitalo with some additions by famous Japanese composers Nobuo Uematsu of Final Fantasy fame and Kenji Ito of Mana and SaGa series fame. The world is colorful and delightful to look at, though with the block-based world design, you can see small holes occasionally between adjacent corners of blocks. It's definitely dated graphically, especially since it was originally a lower budget mobile game from years ago, but I overall like the look of Oceanhorn.

If you want a different kind of Zelda-like gameplay romp on your Nintendo Switch with a campaign that will last you at least 7-10 hours if you're not rushing through just to finish the game but actually exploring the world, then Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas isn't a game you should sleep on. You may have on another platform already, so if that's the case, there really is no benefit of getting the Switch version again unless you really want to have the privilege of switching between docked play and portable play at any time. Oceanhorn is indeed a Zelda clone, but it being isometric and overall competently designed makes it a winner and a fun game to replay in my books -- or, in this case, adventure log.

          Heroic rescues at Tofino whale watching accident   
There's more news from Tofino about the accident that saw the sinking of Leviathan II, a 20-metre -long vessel used for whale watching. At least five people have been confirmed dead, and the search continues for a sixth who is presumed dead in the cold waters off Vancouver Island.
The only boat to see a signal flare from the accident site was a fishing boat with Ken Brown and Clarence Smith. These Ahousaht fishermen rushed to the scene and put out the call for help on their radio. CBC has an article here about the rescue.


updated later:


CTV's 11:00pm report on Tuesday pointed out that with the closure of Uclulet's Coast Guard base, the Coast Guard base at Powell River is responsible for the whole west coast. The rock where passengers were clinging is known locally to fishermen as "Bare Rock" but it's not labelled that on official charts. Only someone with local knowledge would know where that little islet actually was. Luckily, some of the Tofino Coast Guard were able to receive the radio call from Clarence Smith, CTV reported.


Or were they? An in-depth article from Ha-Shilth-Sa website has even more to say about the rescue. When Clarence Smith couldn't make himself understood to Tofino Coast Guard on Channel 16, he switched over to the radio frequency used by Ahousaht First Nation. Reception was good, and boats were there in minutes.


This incident is a real reminder to all small boat users to be prepared with your own boat's safety gear. It's easy to feel strong and capable and in control of my boat, but no one controls the weather or a rogue wave. It's been a while since our paddle group did safety practise, towing each other and practising wet re-entries and more. We'll have to at least do knot practise while watching a video, and learn more about search-and-rescue procedure.


The incident is also a reminder for paddlers to write to their newly-elected MPs (no postage stamp needed!) to call for support and restoring of Coast Guard services that have been closed or under-supplied.
          "Today, we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation. We come together as Canadians..."   
"... to celebrate the achievements of our great country, reflect on our past and present, and look boldly toward our future," says Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada.
At the heart of Canada’s story are millions of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. They exemplify what it means to be Canadian: ambitious aspirations, leadership driven by compassion, and the courage to dream boldly....

As we mark Canada 150, we also recognize that for many, today is not an occasion for celebration. Indigenous Peoples in this country have faced oppression for centuries. As a society, we must acknowledge and apologize for past wrongs, and chart a path forward for the next 150 years – one in which we continue to build our nation-to-nation, Inuit-Crown, and government-to-government relationship with the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Nation....

          My Tower of Oxides   
I wanted to share how I labeled my Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks.  Although Ranger has a great resource page where you can print labels (& color charts) I decided I wanted the actual color & not rely on the accuracy of my printer.

I printed the names of the oxides on white cardstock & punched them out using my SU Word Window Punch.  I printed them twice so I'd have the name on each side of the ink pad.  I figured that would give me a 50/50 chance of putting them away so I could read the name...LOL.

Using a mini ink blending tool I inked each label with their corresponding color.

Once inked, I spritzed them with water so the oxide effect would be on the label.

I then attached the label using Glossy Accents.

To protect the label & seal the color, I rubbed a small amount of Tim's mirco glaze over them.

Aren't they beautiful!!

TFL!







          Texas Supreme Court rules to undermine marriage equality, take away spousal benefits for LGBTQ couples   

Pidgeon v Turner case is a red flag to LGBTQ Americans that fight to protect marriage equality is evolving in age of Trump Administration

NEW YORK – Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO of GLAAD – the world’s largest LGBTQ media advocacy organization, released the following statement after the Texas Supreme Court issued a decision for the Pidgeon v. Turner court case this morning which could now begin the process to undercut marriage equality by erasing spousal benefits, including health care benefits, for legally married LGBTQ couples in the state of Texas. The Court ruled that there is not a de facto right to government benefits for married gay and lesbian couples.

"The Texas Supreme Court’s decision this morning is a warning shot to all LGBTQ Americans that the war on marriage equality is ever-evolving, and anti-LGBTQ activists will do anything possible to discriminate against our families. In the age of the Trump Administration, which continues to systematically erase LGBTQ Americans from the fabric of this nation, the LGBTQ community and our allies must remain visible and push back harder than ever against attacks on acceptance.”
