    "Cooder returned for a mournful slide workout during Woody Guthrie’s “Vigilante Man.” The solo excursion included spine-tingling harmonics that surprised even the player himself. “Yeah,” Cooder exclaimed in delight as his fingers found their mark. “That’s hard to do,” he said. “It’s nice when you get it, and a mess when you don’t.” Cooder augmented Guthrie’s lyrics with a verse for Trayvon Martin in remembrance of the youth and others cut down due to misplaced fear and abuse of power."

    1 For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh; 2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; 3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4 And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words. 5 For though I be...

    After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 2015, Esperanza Franco headed south to the border, where she worked defending immigrants who faced deportation. Now she’s the one who might get kicked out of the country. Franco says her former employer’s mishandling of a work-visa application — she came here from Spain five years ago — has put her in danger of losing her legal status. She fears that in less than a month, she could end up being jailed in the same Arizona detention center where she has gone to visit clients. “I’m going through so much...

    Work on the Al-Kabbash Road project, linking the temple complexes of Luxor and Karnak – which date back to around 1400 BCE, when Luxor was known as the ancient city of Thebes – is due to be finished later this year. However, the discovery of the statue has brought a temporary stop as the statue cannot currently be moved. Not very much is known about it yet, and photos are limited. According to the Director General of Antiquities at Luxor, Dr Mohamed Abdel Aziz, speaking to news site Youm, the workers found a statue of a “lion’s body with a human head”,...

    (Washington Post) - The right-wing Polish government is continuously breaking new ground in its attacks on democracy and the rule of law. But now it has set a truly astonishing precedent. Warsaw has just used its European Union powers to deport a government critic and banned her from entering any country within the European free movement zone. The implications are ominous — and not only for Poland. Lyudmyla Kozlovska, a young human rights defender, is a fervent promoter of democratic Poland. ...This week, the Polish government deported Kozlovska. The authorities have not provided any explanation, but the likely reason is...

    The other day I posted – HERE – about the truly weird vestments designed for the upcoming World Meeting of Families in Dublin. At first, I objected to the impression given by the pastel colors chosen.It seems to me that, in Ireland and in this time of renewed clerical crisis, this is NOT the best choice.  In fact, it is completely tone deaf.Or is it?Then the comments started coming in about the symbols on the vestments.   “Maybe, so, maybe not,” I thought.But wait.  There’s more.I got an email from a reader who said that the swirly symbol is quite like the...

    Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley last night unreservedly apologised to the Hindu community for a skit performed at the People’s National Movement (PNM) family day, saying the skit was disrespectful to that religion but it was done out of ignorance and not malicious intent. Rowley gave the apology during a PNM political meeting held at the Malabar Community Centre last night. “Tonight, on behalf of the People’s National Movement and all concerned, I unreservedly apologise to the Hindu community,” he said.

    The Failing New York Times ^ | 8/19/2018 | Kim Severson
    The Italian actress and director Asia Argento was among the first women in the movie business to publicly accuse the producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault. She became a leading figure in the #MeToo movement. Her boyfriend, the culinary television star Anthony Bourdain, eagerly joined the fight. But in the months that followed her revelations about Mr. Weinstein last October, Ms. Argento quietly arranged to pay $380,000 to her own accuser: Jimmy Bennett, a young actor and rock musician who said she had sexually assaulted him in a California hotel room years earlier, when he was only two months past...

  • Who is Alan Dershowitz?

    Alan Dershowitz says, "I prefer to be around Democrats who hate me than Republicans who love me." (49:03) What does that mean? Does it mean that Democrats who hate him will come up with more creative legal arguments because they are pissed off? Does Alan prefer hate filled Democrats because he enjoys the challenge of correcting their flawed ways of thinking? Does it mean that despite their hated he still wants to be accepted by Democrats -- like the prodigal son coming home to Martha's Vineyard? Does it mean that he is a phony on Fox News or Judge Jeanine...

    President Trump’s former personal lawyer is being investigated over more than $20 million in loans to taxi companies owned by him and his family — and could face charges within the next two weeks, according to a new report Sunday. Michael Cohen is also being probed over deals to buy the silence of women who claimed they had affairs with Trump, The New York Times reported. Federal authorities are in the final stage of their investigation and are weighing charges including bank and tax fraud and violations of campaign finance law, people familiar with the matter told the paper. Prosecutors...

    Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., joked about how somebody saving a drowning President Trump would be a "catastrophe" at the start of an event in Sunshine, Fla., on Sunday. In a video reported by the Daily Caller, Hastings said he first learned of the joke from Ari Silver, whose father is former Florida state legislator and rabbi Barry Silver. “Do you know the difference between a crisis and a catastrophe?” Hastings said, retelling the joke. "A crisis is if Donald Trump falls into the Potomac River and can’t swim,” Hastings said. A "catastrophe," he added, "is anybody saves his ass.'” Cheers...

    Daily caller ^ | 8/19/18 | Slater Bakhtavar
    It is worth noting that some in the American press, most explicitly CNN, have fundamentally misunderstood these protests, mischaracterizing them as internal struggles between political hardliners and “reformists”. This is an almost comical error, and causes one to wonder whether anyone making it has actually seen the demonstrations. The people in the streets are shouting phrases like “marg bar dictator” (meaning ‘down with the dictator’, a reference to Iranian Grand Ayatollah and Supreme Leader Khamenei) and “marg bar Rouhani” (“down with Rouhani”, the current Iranian president). Their opposition to the brutal regime under which they suffer could not be clearer....
