I used to look forward to the Emmy’s but no more. Every year it is the same old shows. Now they only seem to nominate shows on pay channels like HBO, SHO, Amazon Prime, etc. Maybe one show from major networks get in. The major networks have great shows, actors and actresses too you know!!!

Stephen Dorff was the best part of S3 True Detective and just plain stupid to not being nominated, let alone arguably should have been front runner to win! As for GOT, it deserves the nominations for ALL acting categories, as it’s bean beautifully cast and these characters specifically were amazing performances. That said I was disappointed in how the story unfolded and felt rushed in construct of the story itself. But visually, artistically, acted etc.. it really is best drama and does deserve nominations regardless of ones thoughts to how series ended. If anything it was overlooked for first few seasons and has been severely overlooked for year’s.

FINALLY some recognition for Jodie Comer on Killing Eve. They will cancel each other out, so perhaps strategically it would’ve been better to have Comer as best supporting, but she is the star. She deserves it but will undoubtedly all the nominees will be eclipsed by series coming to an end- Veep and Thrones. And so glad Laura Linney nominated for Ozark and that show got recognition, and FINALLY Garner for Ozark as well. An amazing cast in a great show.

MODEL CITIZEN Ancient Rome revealed in stunning detail by ‘most accurate model ever’ that took historian 35 years to build

ROME was not built in a day and the ‘most accurate’ model of Ancient Rome is testament to this as it took archaeologist Italo Gismondi 35 years to build.

The Plastico di Roma imperiale (model of imperial Rome) was actually commissioned by Mussolini in 1933 and is so realistic that a few shots of it were used in the film Gladiator.

The model took over three decades to make

The model took over three decades to make

The model can be viewed today in the Museum of Roman Civilisation in Rome, Italy.

It is so useful because it helps a lot of academics visualise Rome to aid their studies and gives a lot more context to famous structures, like the Colosseum, which we are used to seeing as stand alone buildings.

Roman cities were laid out so efficiently that it can also teach us more and inspire us about infrastructure in modern society.

For example, the city of Bath in England has a Roman layout and Roman baths and similarities can be seen between it and the model.

The model is very intricate and very accurate

Gismondi kept adding to his model of 4th century AD Rome until three years before his death at the age of 87.

He made it all from alabaster plaster, with metal and plant fibre reinforcements.

It is now regarded as the most important source for how ancient Rome looked as it was based on a series of 46 maps that detail ancient Rome in very precise detail.

Mussolini told Italo Gismondi to make the model, which he continued to do for most of his life

Originally commissioned as a piece of propaganda to link Mussolini’s fascist regime to the great Roman Empire, today the model allows visitors from all over the world to connect modern day Rome with the ancient Romans and how they realistically used to live.

A brief history of the Roman Empire

Here’s what you need to know…

The Roman Empire began shortly after the founding of the Roman Republic in the 6th century BC and reigned for thousands of years until the fall of the last Western emperor in 476 AD
During this time, the Romans ruled over most of Europe and parts of Africa and the Middle East
At its height, 90 million people lived in the Roman Empire
It evolved from a monarchy to a democratic republic and finally to a military dictatorship
One of the most well-known Roman emperors is Julius Caesar, famously assassinated in 44BC, who is largely credited for his military mind and laying the foundations for the Roman Empire
The spread of the Roman Empire has had a lasting impact on our lives today with Latin, straight roads, underfloor heating and the spread of Christianity all being attributed to the Romans

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration said Monday it will end asylum protections for most migrants who arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border in a major escalation of the president’s battle to tamp down immigration.

According to a new rule published in the Federal Register , asylum seekers who pass through another country first will be ineligible for asylum at the U.S. southern border. The rule, expected to go into effect Tuesday, also applies to children who have crossed the border alone.

The rule applies to anyone arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border. Sometimes asylum seekers from Africa , Cuba or Haiti and other continents arrive there, but the vast majority of migrants arriving recently come from Central America .

There are some exceptions, including for victims of human trafficking and asylum-seekers who were denied protection in a country. If the country the migrant passed through did not sign one of the major international treaties governing how refugees are managed (though most Western countries signed them) a migrant could still apply for U.S. asylum.

But the move by President Donald Trump’s administration, even if blocked by courts, is reversing decades of U.S. policy on how refugees are treated and marks an escalation even compared to other hardline efforts meant to choke off the flow of people from poor and war torn nations.

Attorney General William Barr said that the United States is “a generous country but is being completely overwhelmed” by the burdens associated with apprehending and processing hundreds of thousands of migrants at the southern border.

“This rule will decrease forum shopping by economic migrants and those who seek to exploit our asylum system to obtain entry to the United States,” Barr said in a statement.

The policy is almost certain to face a legal challenge; the American Civil Liberties Union already signaled it would sue. ACLU attorney Lee Gelernt, who has litigated some of the major challenges to the Trump administration’s immigration policies, said the rule was unlawful.

“The rule, if upheld, would effectively eliminate asylum for those at the southern border,” he said. “But it is patently unlawful.”

U.S. law allows refugees to request asylum when they arrive at the U.S. regardless of how they did so, but there is an exception for those who have come through a country considered to be “safe.” But the Immigration and Nationality Act, which governs asylum law, is vague on how a country is determined “safe”; it says “pursuant to a bilateral or multilateral agreement.”

Right now, the U.S. has such an agreement, known as a “safe third country,” only with Canada. Mexico and Central American countries were considering a regional compact on the issue, but nothing has been decided. Guatemalan officials were expected in Washington on Monday, but apparently a meeting between Trump and Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales was canceled amid a court challenge in Guatemala over whether the country could agree to a safe third with the U.S.

The new rule also will apply to the initial asylum screening, known as a “credible fear” interview, at which migrants must prove they have credible fears of returning to their home country. It applies to migrants who are arriving to the U.S., not those who are already in the country.

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan said additional funding given by Congress for aid at the U.S.-Mexico border isn’t enough.

“Until Congress can act, this interim rule will help reduce a major ‘pull’ factor driving irregular migration to the United States.”

Trump administration officials say the changes are meant to close the gap between the initial asylum screening that most people pass and the final decision on asylum that most people do not win. But immigrant rights groups, religious leaders and humanitarian groups have said the Republican administration’s policies amount to a cruel effort to keep immigrants out of the country. Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador are poor countries suffering from violence .

“This is yet another move to turn refugees with well-founded fears of persecution back to places where their lives are in danger_in fact the rule would deny asylum to refugees who do not apply for asylum in countries where they are in peril,” said Eleanor Acer of Human Rights First. “The president can’t stand the fact that seeking protection in the United States is legal, so he’s doing everything he can to make the asylum process as difficult as possible.”

The treaties countries must have signed according to the new rule are the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, the 1967 Protocol or the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. But, for example, while Australia, France and Brazil have signed those treaties, so have Afghanistan and Libya, places the U.S. does not consider safe.

Along with the administration’s recent effort to send asylum seekers back over the border , Trump has tried to deny asylum to anyone crossing the border illegally and restrict who can claim asylum, and the attorney general recently tried to keep thousands of asylum seekers detained while their cases play out.

Nearly all of those efforts have been blocked by courts.

Meanwhile, conditions have worsened for migrants who make it over the border seeking better lives. Tens of thousands of Central American migrant families cross the border each month, many claiming asylum. The numbers have increased despite Trump’s derisive rhetoric and hard-line immigration policies. Border facilities have been dangerously cramped and crowded well beyond capacity. The Department of Homeland Security’s watchdog found fetid, filthy conditions for many children. And lawmakers who traveled there recently decried conditions .

Immigration courts are backlogged by more than 800,000 cases, meaning many people won’t have their asylum claims heard for years despite more judges being hired.

People are generally eligible for asylum in the U.S. if they feared return to their home country because they would be persecuted based on race, religion, nationality or membership in a particular social group.

During the budget year for 2009, there were 35,811 asylum claims, and 8,384 were granted. During 2018 budget year, there were 162,060 claims filed, and 13,168 were granted.

“The Girl With The Red Hair” Theater Review.

Robert Massimi.

From the time you enter the Alchemical Theater, you know you are in for a bumpy, rough ride; so hold on and enjoy. Set with an edgy feel (track lighting and open ducks on ceiling), music plays before the show, Casey Hartnett (Hayley Jones) prepares for the show before us; she would turn in a stellar performance, one to remember for a long time.

What is great about “The Woman With The Red Hair”, well, actually a lot of things, but the main thing the audience notices most is how great Anthony M. Laura captures the characters in rehab. Hopeless, lost, angry and wanting answers as to why they are the way they are, Laura captures these people perfectly. With the help of great actors, “The Girl” is a riveting, resonant great body of work.

Hayley Jones is a young woman who cut herself and is in rehab to be helped. Frustrated by being medicated and her confrontational relationship with her doctor, Doctor Watkins (Vivian Cardone), Hayley is more lost now than when she entered rehab. It is meaningful that she is reading “Catcher In The Rye”, as she is angry, behind the time of growth as a young person as Holden was in “Catcher”. Hayley comes from a broken home, one in which her dad has been chased by her mother. Her mom is detached and self absorbed in her own life, her superficial relationships, leaving a weak Hayley to fend for herself in this cruel world.

In rehab, we meet many other people in dire need of help. Some people are in their for Bi- polar disorder, some with sexual addiction and others are schizophrenic. This place is not a fun place to be, other than the nurse (Kristen Hasty), every person Hayley comes across either has problems or is confrontational. It seems that only a fond memory of Bette Midler is the only thing that keeps her happy.

Keeping it’s edge, it’s rawness, the lighting was well done… simple, effective and exposed, like the characters themselves. In a simple way, the lighting did not allow these troubled people to hide anywhere, they too were exposed as the lights themselves. Everyone in this place had problems, from the orderlies, to the Doctor and the patients and the lights do not let anyone in this hell hole get out alive.

The costumes too were very well done. From the very basic to the very obvious. Since in the program only Makeup was listed, I am assuming someone did the costumes. The affects of the costumes were great, Doctor Watkins professional garb, to Hayley’s very basic sweats and all the other patient’s costumes, the costumes blended well with the performance at hand. Like the lighting, the costumes added too, and also moved aside for this freight train of a play.

The direction of Laura (also The Playwright), gave us two and a half hours of action. The first act had enough ups and downs to fill three plays, let alone one act. Time flies in this dramatic play, we don’t know what will happen next, we are afraid to blink as we don’t want to miss a single word of this in-depth play. We are shocked by the horrors that these people live through everyday of their demented lives. Only wishing to be happy, these people are in despair, some don’t even know that they are… some are happy just waiting for the Prince to come and save them.

While all the actors are exceptional, the night belonged to Casey Hartnett as Hayley, as she commanded her role deftly. The audience ate up her insecurities, her steadfastness, her vulnerable side as well as her feisty side. Always coming at people from a common sense point of view, she frustrated most people at the rehab center. Just when we think we have her figured out, we get a different Hayley. Hartnett’s effort was done with such ease and nuance, we see a menagerie of personalities and moods.

Kristen Hasty as the nurse was also exceptional as she navigated between the patients, trying to make them feel safe and secure, all the while feeding them meds to ease and relax them from the many disorders that they all face. With a calming effect, we see Hasty as the voice of reason in a war like atmosphere.

Vivien Cardone as Doctor Michelle Watkins is a no nonsense doctor. Coming up the hard way, she is not to be messed with. The standoffs between her and Hayley were worth the price of admission, as neither were backing down. Cardone’s role was to get people better, and if not, the wheels of the process must be moved along. Unemotional, not letting the ugly side of life get to her, she rolls with the punches and in this brutal play, she get’s hit a lot.

“The Girl With The Red Hair” will play again sometime in December (Theater Not Known Yet). This play is not one you want to miss, it is that good. Great story, well acted, and a very deep story.

Illuminati Lizards From Outer Space.

ti Lizards From Outer Space’
by ROBERT MASSIMI 6 hours ago in REVIEW
Rocky Horror Meets Globalists.

Robert Massimi.

In its 16th season of the New York Musical Festival, with 30 musical stories being told in full productions, concerts, and readings, The Jewel Box put forth Illuminati Lizards From Outer Space. Taking place in the entire Festival along Theater Row including Playwrights Horizon, as well as The Signature Theaters, the Festival runs for 28 straight days and its mission is to present new works from new artists. NYMF also wants to celebrate musical theater and put forth these new artists in a positive light.

Throughout the year, the festival attracts unproduced works from across the country and then develops them through innovative collaborations in order to present them on the world’s stage during this festival. Through small musical productions, NYMF is trying to build the next generation of musical theater and talent.

Illuminati Lizards From Outer Space is a musical that deals with Lizards who want to take over and rule the world. Its theme is good vs evil with some political overtones. The show deals with illegal immigration, the environment, and the overmedication of people. The main character is a beauty queen who is stripped of her title for lying about being from America. She ends up in the hands of lizards who drug her because they think she can help them take over the world.

Illuminati has some good acting and choreography, but the story is pretty lousy. Caught somewhere between campy and ridiculous, Illuminati Lizards from Outer Space never gains any traction as an interesting plot line. Most of its songs are less interesting and as musicals go, that’s a recipe for disaster. Not all the songs are horrible, however. “Miss Beautiful World” and “We Know What They Don’t Know ” are pretty good, well choreographed, but not many other songs are overwhelming.

The sound and lighting were well done. Rider Q. Stanton did a nice job with the sound design. From the beginning with the storm to the effects of the Supreme General, Stanton made the most of a lousy situation.

Under glam lighting, Jamie Roderick keep the show up beat with the purple, orange, yellows, and greens. Roderick was particularly effective during the dance numbers. Upbeat and fluent, the lighting was both accurate and entertaining, but not enough to carry this musical.

Director Joey Murray did not reign in the characters and the end result was a mish mosh and a slip shod production. Regardless of the actors giving their best, this show was lost in space between insipid and boring. The lackluster material did not help the directing cause in this musical.

Illuminati Lizards from Outer Space tried to have a little of everything, from #metoo, the environment, illegal immigration, and the good vs evil angle. The musical, however, never really settled into anything meaningful or something that the audience could sink its teeth into. It did not help that it got very confusing at times, partly because of bad staging, mostly because of a bad book. The humor for the most part fell flat, even unnoticed.

Dani Spieler was good as Tina, Brian Charles Rooney was good as the Janitor, and Tom Deckman was also good in his role as Klaus. The cast in general was acceptable—it’s that they had little to work with and were left with good efforts but little meat on the bone to play with.

Paul Western-Pittard took a shot at trying to make an absurd book with catchy lyrics. Trying to create camp and silly humor just did not work here in this musical. The arrangements were also very bland and drab. Unfortunately the ninety minutes started to become tortuous around the forty five minute mark leaving us wondering when this musical tragedy would come to its conclusion.

We Need To Cut The Deficit. We Cannot Go On Like This.

Robert Massimi.
We need to cut the deficit, the spending or the chickens will come home to roost in a very bad way. If the U.S. makes a dollar,it cannot spend $1.18. Plain and simple, we need to cut the spending.

Biden and Obama take another literary spin as crime-fighting duo
IN THE KNOW
— 5M 37S AGO
VIEW ALL
Two and a half years into his term, President Trump has little to show for breaking with erstwhile Republican Party orthodoxy on trade and budget policy.

Indeed, far from delivering on his promise to cut America’s trade deficit, Trump has presided over a ballooning deficit that’s on pace to be some 25 percent higher than when he took office. This is happening at a time when the budget deficit is widening and the country’s public debt is well on its way to exceeding 90 percent of GDP.

Sadly, the Trump administration seems unfazed by the country’s deteriorating long-run financial position. It shows no indication of correcting policy course to put the economy on a sounder long-run economic footing. This makes it all too likely that the country’s incipient twin deficit problem will only worsen in the remaining 18 months of Trump’s first term. That in turn will further mortgage the country’s economic future and diminish the U.S. dollar’s attractiveness as an international reserve currency.

Two defining pillars of the Trump administration’s macroeconomic policy have flown in the face of pre-Trump-era Republican Party orthodoxy.

The first involved the ready resort to import tariffs and the repeated calls for a weak dollar with the supposed intention of leveling the international playing field and eliminating the trade deficit.

The second involved the introduction in 2017, a time of relative economic strength, of a massive unfunded tax cut centered on a large reduction in the corporate tax rate. This budget-busting tax cut gave short shrift to earlier Republican Party strictures that budget deficits mattered and that a rising public debt effectively mortgaged our children’s future. The supposed intent of the Trump tax cut was to spur corporate investment as a means to put the country on a faster growth track.

Needless to say, it is far too early to make a definitive assessment of the major shift in U.S. trade and budget policy on Trump’s watch. But the initial indications give reason for considerable concern.

Far from strengthening the country’s external accounts, the Trump import tariffs and budget largesse are doing the reverse, as indicated by a widening U.S. trade deficit.

The import tariffs are doing so by raising the prospect of a world trade war, by sowing economic uncertainty in our trade partners and by contributing to a generalized economic slowdown abroad. That in turn is inducing our trade partners to demand less of our exports and to loosen their monetary policies. By causing the dollar to appreciate, that relative monetary policy loosening worsens the international competitive position of our exporters in foreign markets.

For its part, our widening budget deficit is damaging our external position by reducing the country’s saving level. That perpetuates a situation whereby the U.S. continues to consume more than it produces, thereby forcing it to import more than it exports.

If the Trump import tariff and budget policy has weakened our external position, the Trump budget stimulus has seriously undermined our long-run public finances. And it has done so without delivering the promised investment boom that was supposed to put our economy on a very much faster growth path than that experienced over the past decade.

According to the independent Congressional Budget Office (CBO), even on optimistic assumptions regarding economic growth, over the next decade the Trump tax cuts will result in an increase in the U.S. budget deficit to an average 4.25 percent of GDP. That would be up from an average of less than 3 percent of GDP over the preceding fifty years. The CBO estimates that those deficits will result in a disturbing rise in the public debt-to-GDP ratio from 78 percent at present to 92 percent by 2029.

An undisciplined budget policy at a time of economic strength limits the scope for fiscal policy support at a time of economic weakness.

This could prove to be particularly unfortunate at a time that already-low interest rates limit the amount of support that the Federal Reserve might be able to provide the economy in the event of an economic downturn. As a result, it could mean that our next economic recession will prove to be more pronounced than need be.

The Trump administration is not known for introspection or for drawing the right lessons from past economic policy disappointments. We should therefore reconcile ourselves to the dismal prospect of having to live with growing twin budget and trade deficit problems.

Steve Wozniak is the latest high-profile naysayer to speak out against Facebook.

The Apple co-founder, who deleted his own Facebook profile last year, told TMZ recently that he recommends most people ‘figure out a way to get off’ the site due to ongoing privacy concerns.

Wozniak warned that people often assume they have much more privacy online than they really do, and said he’s now ‘worried about everything’ when it comes to potential eavesdropping and data sharing.

TMZ ran into Wozniak at Reagan National Airport in Washington D.C. last week and asked him if we should be worried that our devices are listening to us.

And according to Wozniak, the answer is yes.

‘I’m worried about everything,’ Wozniak said. ‘I don’t think you can stop it, though.

‘Who knows if my cell phone is listening right now? Alexa has already been in the news a lot.’

The prevalence of connected devices today means your conversations might not be as private as you think they are, Wozniak said.

‘There’s almost no way to stop it,’ he added. ‘People think they have a level of privacy that they don’t.

‘Why don’t they give me a choice? Let me pay a certain amount and you’ll keep my data more secure and private than everyone else handing it to advertisers.’

While you may not be able to stop it entirely, there are ways the average person can clamp down on their personal data – including getting rid of Facebook.

When asked if Facebook and Instagram users should delete their accounts, Wozniak said most would be smart to do so.

‘There are many different kinds of people, and for some the benefits of Facebook are worth the loss of privacy,’ Wozniak said.

‘But, to many like myself, my recommendation is, to most people, you should figure out a way to get off Facebook.’

Despite his own role in bringing technology to consumers’ hands, Wozniak has increasingly spoken out about the risks and limitations of today’s systems.

In the past, he’s also flip-flopped on the topic of autonomous cars. As of last fall, Wozniak said he’s ‘lost faith’ in the abilities of self-driving technology.

HOW DOES FACEBOOK PLAN TO IMPROVE PRIVACY?
In a March 6 blog post, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg promised to rebuild based on six ‘privacy-focused’ principles:

Private interactions
Encryption
Reducing permanence
Safety
Interoperability
Secure data storage
Zuckerberg promised end-to-end encryption for all of its messaging services, which will be combined in a way that allows users to communicate across WhatsApp, Instagram Direct, and Facebook Messenger.

This he refers to as ‘interoperability.’

He also said moving forward, the firm won’t hold onto messages or stories for ‘longer than necessary’ or ‘longer than people want them.’

This could mean, for example, that users set messages to auto-delete after a month or even a few minutes.

‘Interoperability’ will ensure messages remain encrypted even when jumping from one messaging service, such as WhatsApp, to another, like Instagram, Zuckerberg says.

Facebook also hopes to improve users’ trust in how it stores their data.

Zuckerberg promised the site ‘won’t store sensitive data in countries with weak records on human rights like privacy and freedom of expression in order to protect data from being improperly accessed.’
