5 Incredible Baseball Stadiums Across America

12Nov

Now that the Chicago Cubs have won the World Series and broken then century long curse, the highlight of Wrigley Field has us thinking about the other great stadiums throughout America. The use of stadiums dates back to ancient times, back when the reigning entertainment of the day for a mass audience usually involved some permutation of “sprint really fast while a lion chases you then try and kill your opponent with a rock.” Thankfully, apart from maybe anytime a terrible entertainer performs, things have matured considerably at the hundreds of events that take place at scads of stadiums throughout the U.S. Baseball and the occasional major concert are the primary serving inside the hallowed ground of U.S

My wife came down to breakfast Thursday morning still in a daze over the outcome of the election. She said, poignantly, “I feel just like I did after my father died.

I suspect you’ve heard the definition of chutzpah – the child who kills his parents and then throws himself on the mercy of the court because he is an orphan. Saturday, November 12th, a New York Times editorial bemoaned the steady decline in school funding across America. Politicians and voters often say they want better schools, but that doesn’t mean they’re willing to pay for them.

Anyone who thinks a minor event like voting is going to shut down the television news industry’s coverage of the 2016 presidential election probably also thinks The Walking Dead is a spinoff from the Grateful Dead.

Truth is, we’ve learned a lot both from and about contemporary television news in this election.

Comey Again?

30Oct

James Comey’s decision to inform Congress that the FBI had discovered emails on a laptop belonging to disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner that may be relevant to the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server has roiled the presidential campaign with days to go before the election. His letter provided little details about the emails, leaving the ambiguous discloser subject to interpretation and wild speculation by Trump supporters. At a Friday rally, Donald Trump hailed the news as “bigger than Watergate,” even though all of the emails may be just copies of those released earlier to the FBI.

In the Ending…

28Oct

According to the bi-annual study by the London Zoological Society and the World Wildlife Fund, global wildlife populations have declined by 58% since 1970.  Freshwater environments, lakes and streams and their surroundings, says the report, are the most grievously damaged, with on average 81% of their 1970-level non-human animal life now missing. Methodological critiques of the report – deeming its authors to have mashed vast and variegated data excessively into too few signal numbers – abound. But no serious biologist denies that we are in the midst of an enormous extinction event.  “Event” is the proper term, although not all mass extinctions happen with one great bang, of the Asteroid-Dinosaur variety.  For perspective, the rebounding of new life after a mass extinction takes millions of years.  On that scale, the demise happening right now all around us is horrifically sudden

Gillian Murphy and Marcelo Gomes in ‘Her Notes.’ Photo: Rosalie O’Connor By Sheila Kogan, ZEALnyc Contributing Writer, October 27, 2016 Jessica Lang, award-winning choreographer who has had a long association with the Joyce Theater, has choreographed her first ballet for American Ballet Theater, titled Her Notes , to the piano music of Fanny Mendelssohn Hansel, the elder sister of Felix Mendelssohn. The music is noteworthy because the compositions of Fanny Mendelssohn Hansel have largely been unknown – it wasn’t considered acceptable for a woman of her time (1800s) to publish music – but she wrote over 400 piano pieces (a few published under her brother’s name). Lang chose excerpts from Das Jahr , which I thought was beautifully Romantic (comparable to Chopin, perhaps) and gorgeously played by pianist, Emily Wong

It looks like billions of dollars in wireless data charges are being added to customers’ wireless bills, some causing “overages”; i.e.; when a customer goes over their monthly data usage, known as the ‘data cap’, they can be charged a fee, or have to buy more expensive data or have a slow down of their service, which is called ‘throttling’. Many customers, it appears, purchase additional ‘gigs’ to avoid this. Point of fact, Verizon, et al., have made customer ignorance a new profit center.
