Discrimination Only Works One Way In This Country.

Robert Massimi.
It is getting scary, Blacks only parties, Symposiums and dances. I wonder if I threw a party at a public facility like a college or university and said whites only what would happen? I’m guessing an all out riot probably lead by ANTIFA. How can a college such as Williams allow a black only symposium? It is mind boggling how white people let liberals and people of color get away with this crap! People need to go to this college and protest, even bust a few windows to get the message across to this liberal shit hole of a college.

Whites need not apply: Campus sci-tech symposium to only feature scholars of color

Event at Williams College to explore sci-tech’s ‘relationship to society’

An upcoming science and technology symposium slated to take place at Williams College promises a unique feature: it will showcase “new” voices in the field, and those voices will only come from scholars of color.

“New Voices in Science and Technology Studies: A C3 Symposium,” set for early November at the private Massachusetts-based liberal arts university, invited scholars to submit papers if they represent a “historically underrepresented group.”

The call for papers specifies that means either “African Americans, Alaska Natives, Arab Americans, Asian Americans, Latinx, Native Americans, Native Hawaiians, and other Pacific Islanders.”

Part of the application process asked applicants to write a couple sentences proving themselves as a member of a “historically underrepresented group.” Yet the application also provides an equal employment opportunity statement that people from all backgrounds are welcome.

Chosen scholars will receive a $500 honorarium and be hosted by Williams College as they present their papers to the audience, organizers state, adding “we aim to create an inclusive, intellectually enriching experience for all involved, including the visiting speakers and the faculty and students of Williams.”

Williams College Associate Professor of Political Science and Chair of Science and Technology Studies Laura Ephraim is the point of contact for the event. For the last three weeks she has ignored repeated phone calls and emails from The College Fix seeking comment on the event.

Williams College’s media affairs office and several faculty members in the Science and Technology Studies program at the school also ignored repeated requests for comment.

The only person at the college willing to return numerous requests for comment was an administrative assistant in Science and Technology Studies who said they were unsure who could help The College Fix with its questions.

Promotional materials for the symposium state: “The Science & Technology Studies Program at Williams College invites papers on any topic concerned with science and technology and their relationship to society for a day-long symposium showcasing the work of early-career scholars (ABD or recent PhD) from historically underrepresented groups.”

As for the science and technology program at Williams, it is an interdisciplinary social sciences field, its website states.

“The Program in Science and Technology Studies (STS) aims to provide students with an interdisciplinary framework through which to appreciate the complex interactions between science, technology and society, and with which to analyze and understand the ways science and technology give shape to, and are in turn given shape by, society, culture and history,” the website states.

The program also works on “critical dialogue” issues.

“The STS Program furthermore serves as a forum in which students from all divisions are invited to partake in critical dialogue on a range of pressing issues: scientific controversies, expert knowledge, innovation and sociohistorical transformation, politics and policy, media and communication infrastructure, public understanding of science and technology, and philosophical questions,” according to its website.

Saudi Arabia shuts down about half its oil output after strikes

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran for coordinated strikes on the heart of Saudi Arabia’s oil industry, saying they marked an unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply.

The strikes shut down half of the kingdom’s crude production on Saturday, potentially roiling petroleum prices and demonstrating the power of Iran’s proxies.

Theater Review. “In The Heights”

Uncategorized > “In The Heights”
“In The Heights”
Uncategorized by robert massimi – September 15, 20190

Click to update image

Robert Massimi. “In The Heights is a story about a young man who sees his neighbor (Washington Heights) in the course of three days. First appearing on Broadway at The Richard Rodgers Theater, ” In The Heights” is a light, warm story with great songs and superb dancing.

Played at the Hackensack Performing Arts Center or HACPAC, “In The Heights ” lived in all it’s glory. Like Broadway, this Heights too was a winner. Frank Borrelli who directed as well as set design/lighting and sound design, had the cast razor sharp. For a community show, this one was clicking on all cylinders.

“In The Heights ” is a long show , two and a half hours long, so the staging must be presented well to hold the audience. Between the dance numbers, the good looking ,cast and great costumes, Borrelli has the cast clicking on all cylinders.

” In The Heights ” is more than one young man’s view of his changing neighborhood, it’s about a small community in one section of New York City. It’s about family of the community and the love that they have for one another. As the City sees it’s self gentrifying , neighborhoods like these are all but gone. The show points this out, we see a limousine business being offered to sell itself to make way for what will be a neighborhood of the past. The bodega in which the star narrates his life in the heights will also be gone and so will the memories.

As a theater that is now only two years old, HACPAC will be around for a very long time if it continues to put forth great shows like this one. The performance last night could have easily played off Broadway . This talent level was off the charts for a community theater. Easily a Perry Award contender, “In The Heights ” will be a benchmark as to what community theater should be…

Songs that are great and well composed such as: ” No Me Digga”, ” When Your Home”, “The Club “, When The Sun Goes Down”, and “Hundreds of Stories ” land well in this show. With this talented cast, “In The Heights” sings and dances it way through the entire evening leaving it’s audience entertained throughout. The passion of this Latino community gives their all, they show us through dance, their customs as well as the love of life that each has. Done both comically and through serious undertones, we are invited into these peoples lives for a few hours to enjoy.

What is considered a great Broadway show of it’s time, this community theater version has little to be embarrassed about. With a swinging band hidden onstage, the rhythm and its vibe throughout rings out in this well appointed theater. The actors perform with such grace that it brings this solid story to its wonderful conclusion. Both sad and uplifting, we want to see these people again through the eyes of an audience that has wonderment about where and what will happen to these interesting people of the heights.

Amazon-owned Whole Foods will be withdrawing medical benefits for hundreds of its part-time workers starting Jan. 1, 2020, the company said Thursday.

In the past, employees needed to work at least 20 hours a week to buy into the health-care plan. Now they will need to work at least 30 hours. Less than 2% of its workforce, or 1,900 employees, will no longer be eligible for medical coverage, under the new policy, the company said.

The news was first reported by Business Insider.

“In order to better meet the needs of our business and create a more equitable and efficient scheduling model, we are moving to a single-tier part-time structure,” a company spokesperson said in an email. “We are providing Team Members with resources to find alternative healthcare coverage options, or to explore full-time, healthcare-eligible positions starting at 30 hours per week. All Whole Foods Market Team Members continue to receive employment benefits including a 20% in-store discount.”

In 2018, Amazon raised its minimum wage to $15 for all employees, including those at Whole Foods. Amazon also announced last week that it was planning on adding more than 30,000 permanent jobs in its tech, corporate and fulfillment departments.

450 miles of border wall by next year? In Arizona, it starts
By ASTRID GALVAN
today

1 of 13
Government contractors erect a section of Pentagon-funded border wall along the Colorado River, Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2019 in Yuma, Ariz. The 30-foot high wall replaces a five-mile section of Normandy barrier and post-n-beam fencing, shown at left, along the the International border that separates Mexico and the United States. Construction began as federal officials revealed a list of Defense Department projects to be cut to pay for President Donald Trump’s wall. (AP Photo/Matt York)
YUMA, Ariz. (AP) — On a dirt road past rows of date trees, just feet from a dry section of Colorado River, a small construction crew is putting up a towering border wall that the government hopes will reduce — for good — the flow of immigrants who cross the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.

Cicadas buzz and heavy equipment rumbles and beeps before it lowers 30-foot-tall (9-meters-tall) sections of fence into the dirt. “Ahí está!” — “There it is!” — a Spanish-speaking member of the crew says as the men straighten the sections into the ground. Nearby, workers pull dates from palm trees, not far from the cotton fields that cars pass on the drive to the border.

South of Yuma, Arizona, the tall brown bollards rising against a cloudless desert sky will replace much shorter barriers that are meant to keep out cars, but not people.

This 5-mile (8-kilometer) section of fencing is where President Donald Trump’s most salient campaign promise — to build a wall along the entire southern border — is taking shape.

The president and his administration said this week that they plan on building between 450 and 500 miles (724 and 806 kilometers) of fencing along the nearly 2,000-mile (3,218-kilometer) border by the end of 2020, an ambitious undertaking funded by billions of defense dollars that had been earmarked for things like military base schools, target ranges and maintenance facilities.

Two other Pentagon-funded construction projects in New Mexico and Arizona are underway, but some are skeptical that so many miles of wall can be built in such a short amount of time. The government is up against last-minute construction hiccups, funding issues and legal challenges from environmentalists and property owners whose land sits on the border.

The Trump administration says the wall — along with more surveillance technology, agents and lighting — is key to keeping out people who cross illegally.

Critics say a wall is useless when most of those apprehended turn themselves in to Border Patrol agents in the hope they can be eventually released while their cases play out in immigration court.

In Yuma, the defense-funded section of tall fencing is replacing shorter barriers that U.S. officials say are less efficient.

It comes amid a steep increase since last year in the number of migrant families who cross the border illegally in the Yuma area, often turning themselves in to Border Patrol agents. Many are fleeing extreme poverty and violence, and some are seeking asylum.

Mark Levin Is Wrong About Rand Paul.

Robert Massimi.
Mark Levin was way off base on his nightly broadcast on WABC 77 AM radio last night. Mark Levin has a problem with both Ron and Rand Paul (he thinks they are antisemitic). Levin was wrong about Paul on one simple fact: Rand Paul said it right about toppling regimes. We toppled Iraq’s Saddam Hussein and that was a disaster. What was once a secular country is now a divisive, terrorist laden crap hole. Because the Paul’s want isolation; whereas Levin likes the UN, he lambastes them as cooks, putses and antisemitism, to Levin everyone is antisemitic, by the way. Rand Paul is write that Bolton is a war monger because Bolton is. We have more things to worry about then trying to overthrow everyone we don’t like.

Sept. 11, 2019 6:14 pm ET
WASHINGTON—Now that he has been ousted as national security adviser, John Bolton faces the fresh yet well-worn challenge of forging a post-Trump career path.

Like other former aides to the unconventional president, he is likely to find a mix of opportunities and roadblocks. Some have landed big-ticket book deals, TV contracts—and at least one guest shot on “Dancing with the Stars.” Others have struggled to find their professional footing. That Mr. Bolton left at odds with Mr. Trump may present particular hurdles.

Mr. Bolton hasn’t publicly signaled his next move. Before joining the White House, he was required to wind down two political action committees in his name that had a little over $3 million left in the bank, Federal Election Commission reports show. He also started a national-security foundation which continued to operate after he joined the White House.

One person familiar with Mr. Bolton’s thinking said it was likely the Bolton-tied political action committee will resume its activities soon. He also previously held a contributor contract with Fox News. A spokesperson for Fox didn’t immediately return an email seeking comment.

Still, it appeared unlikely Mr. Bolton, a longtime conservative foreign policy hand, planned a quiet retreat from public life. He took to Twitter on Tuesday to dispute Mr. Trump’s claim that he had been fired and engaged with reporters to share his version of events. The abrupt nature of his exit suggests he may have had little time to plan ahead.

Mr. Bolton declined to comment on his future plans.

A broad set of public and private sector options is typically available to departing White House officials, such as speaking engagements, corporate posts or academic positions. Plenty of former Trump aides have found success in those arenas. Some, however, have discovered more closed doors than their predecessors, amid concerns about the president’s policy making and racially charged rhetoric.

Former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen faced scrutiny as she left the administration earlier this year, with some advocates calling for her to be blocked from jobs after becoming the public face of the family-separation policy. She has kept a low profile since departing.

Mr. Bolton’s contentious tenure and rocky exit from the administration could lead to struggles. He clashed with Mr. Trump, and there were reports of conflict with other White House officials.

Republican consultant Alex Conant said that a rough departure could be a benefit or a hindrance, depending on what the person wants to do next.

“If your goal is to get a TV contract, being someone who has no loyalty to Trump is an advantage,” Mr. Conant said. “I think if your goal is to join the influence industry, burning bridges on the way out of the administration is not the best idea.”

Many former Trump aides have found fairly smooth paths forward.

Former press secretary Sarah Sanders has signed a contributor contract with Fox News and signed a book deal in the months since she left the White House, and she may run for governor of Arkansas. Former Communications Director Hope Hicks has taken a top communications role for a new Fox company. Dina Powell, former deputy national security adviser, returned to Goldman Sachs .

Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who is said to have her sights set on one day running for president, left the administration late last year after a friendly, televised farewell alongside Mr. Trump in the Oval Office, citing her desire to spend more time with her family. And while some have said Ms. Haley may consider returning to the Trump administration, those prospects seemed less likely after she publicly criticized the president on Twitter for one of his attacks against Rep. Elijah Cummings (D., Md.) as “so unnecessary.”

The fortunes of former press secretary Sean Spicer ’s have been mixed. He also has written a book and has a contract for speaking engagements and serves as a consultant to a pro-Trump political action committee. While he hasn’t received a television-news contract, he has appeared on the entertainment show “Extra” as a correspondent and is set to appear on the next season of “Dancing with the Stars.”

Some of those who left under more strained circumstances have landed on their feet. Former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis resigned last December amid conflict with the president over his order for a hasty withdrawal from Syria. Mr. Mattis recently came out with a book. He is a fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution, where he joined Mr. Bolton’s predecessor, former national security adviser H.R. McMaster.

Mr. McMaster publicly aired his concern over Russia’s role in the 2016 election, prompting swift public rebuke from Mr. Trump. But in the end, his exit was far less abrupt than Mr. Bolton’s, and he quickly went on to hold a fellowship at Stanford. Mr. Trump since has called Mr. McMaster for policy advice, according to one person familiar with the discussion.

What do you expect John Bolton to do next after leaving the White House? Join the conversation below.

Mr. Trump’s former economic adviser Gary Cohn, who resigned over Mr. Trump’s decision to impose tariffs on imports from several U.S. allies, served as a fellow at Harvard University’s Kennedy School in the spring.

Others have stayed under the radar, like former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. He was skeptical of the administration’s vow to pull out of the Iran nuclear accord and was cut out of the decision-making process over his differing policy opinions and an overall lack of personal chemistry with Mr. Trump.

The commemorations take place on Ashura, the tenth day of the first month of the Islamic calendar.

They mark Husayn’s death at the Battle of Karbala, fought between Husayn and Yazid I on October 10 680AD to determine who should succeed the prophet as the leader of Islam.

Yazid is considered a tyrant by some Muslims, and Husayn’s death is considered by the Shia community to be a symbol of humanity’s struggle against injustice, tyranny, and oppression.

The anniversary is a national holiday in Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Bahrain, and Pakistan, and typically involves public expressions of mourning.

The Ashura festivities were marked by tragedy in Iraq’s holy city of Karbala after more than 30 pilgrims died and another 100 were wounded in a stampede when a walkway collapsed.

Some Muslims mark the day with the practice of Tatbir, in which a sword or scourge is used to draw blood in remembrance of the innocent blood of Husayn.

Many who take part in the practice believe it cleanses them of their sins.

A popular saying among Shia Muslims has it that “a single tear shed for Husayn washes away a hundred sins”.

The ritual, which is sometimes carried out on children, is controversial within the Muslim world, with some research suggesting it can cause lasting psychological damage.

Many clerics also consider it to be self harm, which is “haram” – forbidden – in Islam.

Others worry that the practice creates a negative image of their faith.

Worshippers are instead encouraged to donate blood, with some communities organising donation drives with organisations like the Red Cross.

Other rituals carried on Ashura include mourning processions, recitations of mournful poetry, and services in which the history of the Battle of Karbala is retold.
