Monday Night Jam: Jenny and the Mexicats, on NPR Music Tiny Desk Concerts

March 26, 2018 | Felix Contreras — Jenny and the Mexicats is a discovery from South by Southwest a few years ago that I haven’t been able to get out of my mind, and with good reason: The band’s high energy shows are unforgettable, as is its sound. Mixing flamenco, originally from southern Spain, with Jenny Ball’s jazz trumpet background and a little bit of cumbia has created their one-of-a-kind musical identity.

The grooves these musicians create can be frenetic (as in the first performance here, “Frenético Ritmo”) or slow and luxurious (“The Song for the UV Mouse House”). In both cases, the group presents the perfect cushion for Ball’s impassioned singing and engaging stage presence. There are no weak points in the instrumentation, and with Ball out front, the songs come to life as the short stories they are — like that of the young lady who appreciates a beer before taking on life’s challenges in “Verde Más Allá.”

Watching this performance, it’s easy to see why Jenny and the Mexicats is picking up new fans as the group travels the world spreading its good cheer. The musicians bring their festival circuit-level performance down to almost a whisper here, but the intensity of their playing remains. After watching, perhaps you’ll end up like me, with their names permanently entered in your mental Rolodex.

Set List

“Frenético Ritmo”
“The Song for the UV House Mouse”
“Verde Más Allá”

re: #73 Brian J.

Sadly, that’s why I expect all these teachers’ strikes to come to nothing. Their students’ parents, and indeed most of the teachers, are too afraid of the black and the brown and the “librul” to ever support education.

And yet, the teachers’ strikes have support from the parents, who are also coming out to picket.

We’ll have to see, but strikes are one of the few tools you can use to get the attention of a business or government.

Good tunes again tonight Charles. I really enjoyed that.

Of course, it is real easy to watch Jenny. She is attractive and her expressive movements add to her vocal expressions. And the band is good; love the instruments used in the band. Adds some jazz elements to the Mexican/Spanish themes.

Breast Cancer and Screening Info Removed from the Government’s Health Department Website (goes to Daily Kos, more at the link):

A variety of important information about breast cancer and breast cancer screenings has gone missing from the Department of Health and Human Services women’s health website. The Sunlight Foundation tracks changes to government sites and they published a report on the now-vanished information.

The “Breast Cancer” website and related pages were removed from within the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office on Women’s Health (OWH) website. While content about mammogram breast cancer screening remains, informational pages and factsheets about the disease, including symptoms, treatment, risk factors, and public no- or low-cost cancer screening programs, have been entirely removed and are no longer found elsewhere on the OWH site. Among the material removed is information about provisions of the Affordable Care Act that require coverage of no-cost breast cancer screenings for certain women, as well as links to a free cancer screening program administered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The office did not proactively announce or explain the removals.

My great grandfather Bacon was active in the Socialist Party after he was kicked out of his government job in 1910. He was involved with the IWW, believed the only way to get a fair deal from the rich was for the masses to simply shut down the system and stay out until the rich got pinched. Grandma Bacon still had his IWW organizing book when I lived with her in the 1980s and it was just amazing to read…ol’ Joe Hill and Big Bill Hayward would love what these teachers are finally doing!

Jill McCabe: The President Attacked My Reputation. It’s Time to Set the Record Straight. (opinion piece in the Washington Post, the lede below, the whole article is good)

I am an emergency room pediatrician and an accidental politician — someone who never thought much about politics until I was recruited to run for state office after making a statement about the importance of expanding Medicaid. That decision — plus some twisted reporting and presidential tweets — ended up costing my husband, Andrew, his job and our family a significant portion of his pension my husband had worked hard for over 21 years of federal service. For the past year and a half of this nightmare, I have not been free to speak out about what happened. Now that Andrew has been fired, I am.

if we’re (by we’re, I’m referring to people who believe in the rule of law, psuedo christo-judeo morality and ethics, and a grounding in the belief of the ideals of America, opportunity, tolerance and hard work) able regain control ofbeleaguered country, I think about what a daunting task lies ahead (but not impossible since the GOP has handily identified what is really worth saving for us by trying to destroy it)

we have to get Citizen’s United overturned
we have to get foreign money out of our politics
we have to prosecute those that aided and abetted this travesty and if found guilty, we have to really drop the hammer, jail time, confiscation of ill gotten gains)
restore the ACA
restore the CSFB
restaff the government
make the emoluments clauses law
sanctify rules of fair governance (because the GOP obviously won’t observe them if they’re only “guidelines”)
settle immigration
install sensible gun control
re-institute FCC regs
kill gerrymandering
modify the electoral college to be more reflective of our nation
make the tax code more sensible in sharing the load proportionally
restore SEC sanity
Restore the EPA and national parks

there’s a LOT of work to do and I haven’t even touched on trying to seriously address our racism in the courts and the law enforcement system and will let the rest of you pile on to everything I’ve missed :-)

I am thinking about all the things that would be involved in comprehensive and effective immigration reform and all the various hindrances to accomplishing them.

Some physical control of our borders is important, but the main goal is to remove or diminish the motivation for illegal immigration and to make it harder for undocumented aliens to establish themselves in our society once they are here.

We pride ourselves on being an open, unbureaucratic society where people do not need to register their addresses with the authorities or produce ID on demand. But the flip side of that is a fairly chaotic state compared to other countries when it comes to identifying one’s residence and work status.

So all we have now is a patchwork of statutes and regulations that are unevenly applied, and sometimes even inhumanely so. There is a lot of shouting and counter-shouting while the core problems go ignored.

I do not get my news from television or any other video-based source unless I am watching footage of some dramatic event like a plane crash or fire, etc.

I have long made the point that especially video news is less there to inform us than it is to evoke a gut reaction.

I tried to explain that to a buddy who is always getting worked up over what he sees on TV and he found himself literally frothing at the mouth and pounding on the table, and still not getting the point I was trying to make,

Court filings have revealed that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has even broader authority than the already extensive power granted by Rod Rosenstein to investigate the Trump campaign “and any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.” In an August 2, 2017 memo, Rosenstein gave the special counsel authority to investigate Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort for his efforts in the Ukraine, and his ongoing outreach to Russia.

Robert Mueller, the U.S. Justice Department’s special counsel, is specifically authorized to investigate allegations that Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, colluded with Russia to interfere with the 2016 presidential election, a court filing showed late on Monday.

They court documents also show that Mueller is specifically authorized to investigate Manafort’s ties to Ukraine’s former pro-Russia government.

Mueller was given explicit instructions to go after Manafort in addition to his investigating Trump.

William Lewis  Apr 3, 2018 • 7:15:32am

Well, I see that the SCOTUS has told the Police that they can shoot anyone with impunity.

The U.S. Supreme Court has again stepped into the bitter public turmoil over police shootings of civilians, ruling Monday that an Arizona police officer is shielded from being sued for shooting a woman in her own front yard.

The court said the officer acted reasonably, given that the woman, Amy Hughes, was carrying a large kitchen knife, that she was standing within striking distance of a woman who the officer did not know was Hughes’s roommate, and that Hughes failed to drop the knife when ordered to do so.

Police were called to the scene after a 911 call reported a woman hacking at a tree with a knife. Hughes fit the description of the woman. So when police spotted her with the knife in her hand, and within striking distance of another woman, all three officers on the scene drew their guns.

Three officers draw guns, but only one shoots

They said Hughes appeared calm, but when she failed to acknowledge the officers’ presence or their twice repeated order to drop the knife, one of the three officers opened fire.

Hughes, who sued for $150,000 in damages, is one of thousands of people shot by police who survive.

Luckily, at a million dollars per episode he is pretty much set for life and he will be getting residuals until the day he dies.

Also I think he does a lot of voice work in animated shows. Mark Hamill made a whole career out of that after Star Wars.

Don’t want to sound EMP nutty but this kind of thing scares me. Feels like we are gonna take a big black eye. We are not taking this stuff nearly seriously enough. At least not the above board, non classified ISP-Host-Consumer chain. Pretty much a ton of outdated servers / server os, consumer complacency out there. The common hardware is pretty weak security wise.

I don’t trust the Trump admin to get this at all right. The huge ISP’s are all about stock projections. So they don’t want to pony up really secure modems for us all and it’s a big ask to tell homeowners to drop at least hundreds (my estimate just under 2k over a couple years, then low hundreds per year) or more into hardware firewalls with all the update features and processing power to not delay or buffer Netflix.

One simple note consumers can take advantage of-you can’t hack OFF. Modern power supplies tolerate it just fine, no need to leave it on 24/7

It is why we got Trump. He was going to Make America Great Again. He could fix all*

And a lot of people that abandoned Hillary didn’t think of things like a 20 to 30 Supreme Court appointment.

I’ve shared info about Naomi Wu, the flamboyant builder and coder in Shenzhen. She’s had several run ins with dudebros over the last few months, who have questioned whether she can actually make the stuff she shows in her YouTube videos, or even that she really exists.

Well, now Vice has stepped in it. According to Naomi and the story linked here, she told them certain personal questions were off limits during an interview, and they supposedly agreed to those terms. Then they went ahead and wrote about those details anyway.

She got pissed, and not only called them out on Twitter but then somehow doxxed Vice in one of her videos posted for her Patreon supporters. (I’m one.) So, what did Vice do? Demanded Patreon delete her campaign channel. It’s gone, and so is that income for her.

I’m not sure of all the details yet, but I doubt a male maker/coder would be treated so cavalierly by Vice.

wheat-dogg  Apr 3, 2018 • 8:36:14am

Ah, I think I see the problem with the Naomi Wu piece.

But Wu’s form of activism can also be hostile and combative. She wields her impressive Twitter presence to confront people she disagrees with. I know this from personal experience, as Wu took issue with my reporting after I returned from China.

Wu told me she didn’t want to discuss her marital status, but before publishing the piece, I followed up with her. I hoped to discuss the Reddit conspiracy theory that claimed someone she’s in a relationship with was behind her work. Wu has spent significant energy proving these conspiracy theories false, and shutting down this harassment has inspired other women who have faced similar treatment online.

“Do you actually have time to hop on Skype to go over the Reddit conspiracy theory?” I wrote. “It would be really helpful [to] address these allegations. I saw that video where you say you’re [name redacted’s] wife—and I’d like to discuss the unfairness of assuming a woman receives help, just because her partner works/worked in a similar industry. If you don’t want to discuss this at all, I understand and won’t push. I think the Reddit conspiracy theory is vicious, but since this profile is long and comprehensive, I’d love to highlight your opinions about prototype bias, gender expectations, and racism as they relate to the rumor. Let me know how that sounds, and what you’re comfortable with.”

At the same time Wu responded to me, she started tweeting about VICE. Over the next several weeks, Wu publicly shopped our correspondence to journalists and tagged me, my former colleague, my editor, and VICE in dozens of tweets; her followers sent me many more.

In emails, Wu accused me of blackmailing her and writing a “hit piece.” Without having seen the story, she wrote that if I published the article under my byline, VICE “will throw you to the wolves.”

motherboard.vice.com

The author of the Vice article is not a dudebro, but Sarah Emerson. I think she stepped in it big time with that marital status inquiry.

Naomi has contended for a while that she keeps her real identity obscure, because she’s afraid her freelance coding business will suffer if clients find out who she is. I’m not clear why she wants to keep her relationship a secret — most people in China assume she has a boyfriend — but it’s her choice. Vice could have respected that, and Naomi could have less of a powderkeg about it.

Yeah, well, nope. I’m not overly impressed with the WSJ’s hand-wringing (or at least as the RawStory recap paints it) over Trump’s tariff BS - the “business class” are going to be just fine with a Trump/GOP regime for the same reasons they always have - as the article states, “taxes and deregulation”: and the universal acceptance of the fact that Republicans will reliably put the interests of Money (iow, their donor class) ahead of all other considerations.
Big Agriculture is a significant contribution bloc, though: I think it’s likely they will pressure the Admin - probably by distracting the Moron-in-Chief - to tread easy on the tariff pressure. One hopes.

Also, too: “$60 billion” as punitive tariffs on “intellectual property theft”? What is that? Pirated videos from Hong Kong and the like? ISTR that pushing to apply US regs re “IP” (among the most stringent in the world, IIRC) was one of the big components of the late lamented TPP negotiations (and one of the big reasons lefties bitched about it) - I have to wonder why Trump and gang think it will be easier to push the issue unilaterally.

I wouldn’t say Hamill is horrible on screen, but not much better than he was in the original 1977 movie when he was just barely acceptable as an actor. His acting range is quite limited when he’s on camera. Somehow voice acting frees him from whatever gets in his way.

According to the indictment, Van der Zwaan lied about his contacts with Trump campaign official Richard Gates and a Ukraine-based business associate of both Gates and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. He then tried to cover his tracks by deleting emails that the special counsel’s office had requested.

[…]

The London-based lawyer has no known ties to the Trump campaign, but in a court filing last week, prosecutors allege that Van Der Zwaan and Gates knowingly had discussions with Kilimnik during the final months of the election. Prosecutors said the communication “was pertinent to the investigation.”

It seems he has some kind of a deal with Mueller. It is more to protect Mueller’s investigation from what I can tell from this article. I guess he has info that can hurt the investigation if others get it. But I am not a lawyer and this all goes over my head. Maybe our lawyerly types can break this down.

Mueller Wants Shroud on Van Der Zwaan Records

WASHINGTON (CN) - In one of the cases being prosecuted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the government asked a federal judge Monday to uphold a provision of a plea agreement that limits public access to the records.

The request to the court came one day before U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson will sentence Alex Van Der Zwaan, who pleaded guilty on Feb. 14 to lying to FBI agents about his contacts with former Trump campaign associate Rick Gates.

As part of his plea deal, Van Der Zwaan had agreed to waive his right to receive or request information from the government pertaining to its investigation or prosecution of the case under the Privacy and Freedom of Information Acts.

Justice Department attorney Andrew Weissmann noted in a 3-page filing late Monday morning that the waiver “serves manifold legitimate criminal-justice interests while minimally encumbering Van Der Zwaan’s rights for a period of limited duration.”

Among other things, Weissmann argued, the waiver would prevent Van Der Zwaan “from taking further actions that could interfere” with the special counsel’s work.

Special counsel Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election, along with possible ties between Russia and the Trump campaign.

Weissman’s April 2 filing also expresses concern about the disclosure of nonpublic information that is part of the special counsel’s ongoing investigation.

“Van Der Zwaan is in an unusual position of having information related to the Office’s investigation that is not widely known - including information that he knows first-hand due to his role in the conduct the Office is investigating,” the filing says.

“And requests filed by someone with non-public information could, themselves, suggest to third parties investigative facts that are otherwise not widely know,” the filing continues.

Mueller’s team says Van Der Zwaan, 33, worked closely with Gates and former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort on a report commissioned by the Ukrainian government about the trial of Yulia Tymoshenko, the former prime minister of Ukraine.

Excellent thread here celebrating Southern military officers who chose to spend the Civil War fighting to save their country rather than attempting to destroy it in an effort to save slavery.

Let us not forget Virginia-born General Henry “The Rock of Chickamauga” Thomas, whose most famous quote should be read out loud at every public meeting during Confederate Heritage Month:

“The greatest efforts made by the defeated insurgents since the close of the war have been to promulgate the idea that the cause of liberty, justice, humanity, equality, and all the calendar of the virtues of freedom, suffered violence and wrong when the effort for southern independence failed. This is, of course, intended as a species of political cant, whereby the crime of treason might be covered with a counterfeit varnish of patriotism, so that the precipitators of the rebellion might go down in history hand in hand with the defenders of the government, thus wiping out with their own hands their own stains; a species of self-forgiveness amazing in its effrontery, when it is considered that life and property—justly forfeited by the laws of the country, of war, and of nations, through the magnanimity of the government and people—was not exacted from them.

He doesn’t know what “it” is.

He called it a building, house, whatever.

It’s the White House. It’s right there in the name.

Seth Meyers joked that the reason Trump put his name on the buildings was to remember where he was.

His quote from yesterday…trying so hard to be cute and he comes off like a twit.

President Trump thanked the White House Historical Association and “all of the people who work so hard with Melania, everybody, to keep this incredible house, or building, or whatever you want to call it because there really is no name for it.”

“It is special, and we keep it in tip-top shape,” he said. “We call it sometimes ‘tippy-top’ shape. And it’s a great, great place.”

I bet tippy-top shape is a new phrase. He loves to take credit for new words and phrases. This time he might have been right about no one ever saying that before.

No one is that idiotic.

Do not expect him to consider that the USPS is not a for-profit organization, it is a government agency that provides a public service.

But what can we expect from someone with absolutely no record of public service?

Considering that they run those routes every day regardless, Amazon is generating more income than cost….

The caravan of Central American migrants that angered U.S. President Donald Trump was sidelined at a sports field in southern Mexico with no means of reaching the border even as Trump tweeted another threat to Mexico Tuesday.

“The big Caravan of People from Honduras, now coming across Mexico and heading to our “Weak Laws” Border, had better be stopped before it gets there,” Trump wrote. “Cash cow NAFTA is in play, as is foreign aid to Honduras and the countries that allow this to happen.”

The caravan that once numbered 1,150 or more people actually halted days ago in the town of Matias Romero in the southern state of Oaxaca, where participants slept out in the open. After days of walking along roadsides and train tracks, the organizers now plan to try to get buses to take participants to the final event, an immigrants’ rights conference in the central state of Puebla later this week.

But damn, AUK was fun back in the day. I know one guy that targeted me got an award, that was one of the things that led to me leaving Usenet, he tried to dox me.

He failed, he got someone with my name, but about 150 miles away, I told him that…

…he tried again…he got someone with my name, but about 150 miles in the OTHER direction.

I was OK with crap happening to me, but the idea of shit directed at me hitting someone ELSE kinda got me to pull back from AUK, and Usenet entirely.

I suspect that is a refrigerated, posed frog. They never sit with some toes up in the air. I only know this because I have a sister in law who specialized in taking pictures of frogs copulating or with their chin inflated, because those are proof that it was NOT refrigerated and posed.

I don’t know anything about the snails. Need more sisters in law, but I’m out of brothers.

AltaVista was so cool when it came out. Nothing else even close to it. Especially for searching the then still common Gopher sites.

A close friend of mine was heavily involved with the software involved in AltaVista, from the ground up. When they started contracting, they started with the higher salaries, which cut her loose. Shoot self in foot.

Unfortunately Trump proved that stupid people are enough to get a fool elected President.

It’s the flip-side of this:

A supporter once called out, “Governor Stevenson, all thinking people are for you!” And Adlai Stevenson answered, “That’s not enough. I need a majority.”

Yeah, I was looking at that, wondering if it was code speak:

[Lithuanian President Grybauskaitė] “We need leadership, sometimes for decision making, even unpredictable leadership … for rivals to believe that we can make a decision.”

So, who are the “rivals”? MSNBC interprets the statement as “praise” for Mr Trump, but I daresay a lot of Lithuanians would interpret “rivals” as “Russia”, and would interpret Mr Trump’s pro-Russia statements accordingly.
