Louis Cole & Genevieve Artadi of KNOWER: “My Buick” w/ Germany’s WDR Big Band [VIDEO]

YouTube

The new ending of this version of Louis Cole’s “My Buick” made me feel things I never knew I could feel for a Buick.

“My Buick” (komponiert von Louis Cole) ist das letzte Stück in der Videoreihe mit dem unabhängigen elektronischen Musikduo “KNOWER”. Louis Cole selbst schrieb das Arrangement für die WDR BIG BAND, mit Rob Bruynen an der Trompete. Chefdirigent Bob Mintzer dirigiert die WDR BIG BAND.
Dieses Video wurde im Mai 2019 im WDR Studio 4 in Köln, Deutschland, produziert.

Here’s another good reason to end the existence of billionaires by not allowing accumulation of such wealth — nobody deserves the level of veneration that billionaires get in the wealth-worshipping US.

Musk has got a bad case of “I am always and everywhere the smartest person in the room” syndrome.

Not really much of a surprise (assuming that is bubonic plague which is being referred to) - Central Asia has long been regarded as the original home, and still-existing reservoir for, the Yersinia pestis organism: and, as it is vectored in wild rodents, many of the cases recorded worldwide are from that region. Though one would think the locals would figure that chowing down on some General Tso’s Marmot wouldn’t be a good idea…

Happy Half-Way Through 2020 Day!!

I’m feeling like I’m in limbo-land. Seven days ago I turned 66, and six days from now I’ll wake up retired. My career is kind of sputtering to a close in isolation as we all work from home and 90% of our interactions are gone. Tuesday I’ll just haul my computer back to the office, clean out my desk alone, turn in my badge and drive home and mostly stay home until it’s safe to go out.

I’m feeling like I’m in limbo-land. Seven days ago I turned 66, and six days from now I’ll wake up retired. My career is kind of sputtering to a close in isolation as we all work from home and 90% of our interactions are gone. Tuesday I’ll just haul my computer back to the office, clean out my desk alone, turn in my badge and drive home and mostly stay home until it’s safe to go out.

Rockwall has decided half-steam ahead for this weekend’s fireworks and parade. Abbott gave local areas an out from his orders in a few things and Rockwall took advantage of them. I won’t be there, but they’re somehow going to require safe distancing.

There’s been a lively discussion over masks on Nextdoor, lively meaning:

Person 1: Show me the evidence that masks work
Person 2: Here’s the evidence:
P1: Yeah, but you didn’t show me the evidence. That’s just science.

I can do about 2/3 of my work from home. Because of it either being classified work, or physical labor - part of my company’s work is fitting airplanes - a good chunk of it cannot be done from home.

Having said that, a big reason the company is reluctant to let us work from home, is they think we will be less efficient.

Greenville. The company has gone through about half a dozen name changes since its founding in the 50s, where it started out fixing military aircraft. It’s now L3Harris. Because of that, the Greenville airport, an otherwise tiny airport, has a runway long enough to land 747s. Air Force One could actually land out there if it needed to.

RC-135 Rivet Joint

The RC-135V/W is the USAF’s standard airborne SIGINT platform. Missions flown by the RC-135s are designated either Burning Wind or Misty Wind.[24] Its sensor suite allows the mission crew to detect, identify and geolocate signals throughout the electromagnetic spectrum.[25] The mission crew can then forward gathered information in a variety of formats to a wide range of consumers via Rivet Joint’s extensive communications suite. The crew consists of the cockpit crew, electronic warfare officers, intelligence operators, and airborne systems maintenance personnel. All Rivet Joint airframe and mission systems modifications are performed by L-3 Communications in Greenville, Texas, under the oversight of the Air Force Materiel Command.[4][25]

All RC-135s are assigned to Air Combat Command. The RC-135 is permanently based at Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska, and operated by the 55th Wing, using various forward deployment locations worldwide.[25]

Under the “BIG SAFARI” program name, RC-135Vs were upgraded from the RC-135C “Big Team” configuration. RC-135Ws were originally delivered as C-135B transports, and most were modified from RC-135Ms. This is the only difference between the V and W variants; both carry the same mission equipment. For many years, the RC-135V/W could be identified by the four large disc-capped MUCELS antennas forward, four somewhat smaller blade antennae aft and myriad of smaller underside antennas. Baseline 8 Rivet Joints (in the 2000s) introduced the first major change to the external RC-135V/W configuration replacing the MUCELS antennas with plain blade antennas. The configuration of smaller underside antennas was also changed significantly.

The sad thing is Trump and the Republicans want to kill Amtrak and they’ve already killed the dining cars on most lines. They killed the parlor cars on the Coast Starlight.

It ruined the floor and today we ordered a new French door style refrigerator to replace our 17 year-old side-by-side. They seem to have much more usable space. There’s nothing like a few thousand un-budgeted dollars to make life more painful. I’m still planning to replace a side door to the garage and a kitchen sink, faucet and garbage disposal this year.

The two things relevant about Eric’s tweet are that he (and likely his entire family) recognizes that connections to Epstein/Maxwell are very problematic even if nothing can yet be proven and that nobody is rushing to defend the Clintons.

An armed member of Canada’s military has been arrested after driving a pick-up truck through the gates of an estate where Prime Minister Justin Trudeau lives, police say.

The suspect used his vehicle to breach the main entrance of Rideau Hall in Ottawa in early stages Thursday morning.

He then entered the grounds by walking before being confronted by police.

Trump’s only capable of two types of speeches:

- Long, aimless, stream-of-consciousness fueled rants that are careen from topic to topic like a junker in a demolition derby, with the ultimate result being not much different in consistency or usefulness. But these sorts of speeches tend to be limited to his rallies, because MAGAts aren’t looking for a well-spoken speech but rather a steady helping of red meat from beginning to end.

- Slow, dull, listless readings of a prepared speech from a teleprompter that could be mistaken for hostage videos. These are the speeches he gives whenever he knows he needs to look “presidential,” though each time he does one he actually makes a mockery of all the jokes wingnuts used to make about how anyone can sound good when reading from a teleprompter as a dig against Obama. This is more likely to be the sort of speech he gives tonight, much as he did last year at the Lincoln Memorial.

Coronavirus in North Korea: Kim Jong-un claims ‘shining success’ (BBC)

North Korea closed its borders and put thousands into isolation six months ago as the virus swept across the globe.

It claims that it has no virus cases, though analysts say this is unlikely.

Mr Kim is said to have “analysed in detail the six month-long national emergency anti-epidemic work” at a politburo meeting on Thursday. He said the success in handling the virus was “achieved by the far-sighted leadership of the Party Central Committee”.

But he stressed the importance of maintaining “maximum alert without… relaxation on the anti-epidemic front”, adding that the virus was still present in neighbouring countries.

Melbourne is experiencing a surge in coronavirus cases, after Victoria state got them under control.

It turns out the source seems to be the quarantine hotels used by people entering the country.

A report which traced Covid-19’s mutation in Victoria found that hotel staff cases were the “ancestors” of ones found later in suburban homes.

So how did the virus spread? Allegations of blame have been levelled at private security firms contracted to operate the state’s quarantine. Neighbouring New South Wales took a different approach - using the police force.

Victoria has faced accusations of systemic failures such as guards being improperly trained or not given enough PPE.

Mr Andrews has also described cases of illegal socialising between staff, listing examples of workers sharing a cigarette lighter or car-pooling. Local media also reported claims of sex between guards and quarantined travellers.

The government has ordered a judicial inquiry into their quarantine operation and fired the contractors.

Where I grew up we had a co-op telephone company with two party lines. The first number was the number of long rings, the second number was the number of short rings.

In a town emergency, the operator would plug in a whole bank of phones and use a yardstick to ring all the phones with eight short rings.

Later when we got rotary dial service, you could dial four digits to anyone in town. For long distance, you had to give your telephone number to the operator so you could be properly billed (the system ran on a lot of trust).

I finally got fed up with answering calls asking if Mr Beaver was there and started responding with “Mr Beaver is not in. Would you like to speak with Mr Woodchuck?”

LOL

For quite a while my mother when she moved to Chicago got calls for people ordering pizza … apparently the telephone company reassigned a number from a restaurant to her when she got her telephone there.

12 new cases of COVID-19 confirmed by tests in Scotland in the past 24 hours with a single death. There are 670 patients in hospital with 12 of them in intensive care.

There’s a small cluster of “in the wild” cases being tracked down near the border with England, the authorities believe they’ve got in touch with all the affected people and have advised them to self-quarantine for the next fourteen days.

The shouting match between the UK government and the Scottish government continues, centred around the plans for an “air-bridge” for visitors from named countries who won’t have to go through quarantine when they arrive. The list of permitted countries being presented by Westminster keeps changing hour to hour and the Scottish government, having worked hard to get the infection rates and deaths down well below England’s numbers isn’t happy with this shambolic process, especially since the lists are handed down from on high with no substantive discussion from the other nations in the UK allowed.

After the Moon landings in 1969 they added another clause to the motto, “and nothing yet too far.”

From this morning’s Mpls. StarTribune

Complaints of evictions in senior care homes up nearly 30% during pandemic

…One resident’s eviction appears to have stemmed from his desire to have someone read his unread mail, according to a state survey.

The resident, who is not identified by name or age, said a volunteer would normally read him his mail because he is blind and because the staff did not have the time to do so. But the volunteer could no longer visit because of COVID-19, causing four or five months of unread mail to accumulate, he said.

The man turned to a friend, who read him his mail from a car in the facility’s front parking lot. The friend was told by a staffer at the front desk that it was OK if he did not go beyond the property, the state report said. But when the resident returned to the building, he was told he was being discharged immediately. His belongings were already on a dolly.

“I had to sit in the chairs, in the front entrance,” the man said, according to the state report. “I sat there all night, into the next morning.”

Finally, at 10 a.m., about 17 hours after he was evicted, the man contacted Metro Mobility, the public transportation service for people with disabilities, and was taken to a Salvation Army facility. Two weeks later, the man was living in a Holiday Inn hotel, the report said.

The resident had underlying health problems, including major depressive disorder, lower back pain and diabetes, in addition to vision loss. Yet he told state investigators that he was not given his medications upon discharge from North Ridge. A nurse disputed this account, though the state’s review of medical records found no evidence that he was given his drugs, the state report said.

“Based on interview and document review, the facility failed to ensure a proper discharge process,” the state Health Department concluded in its survey.

I took the Amtrak from Flagstaff, AZ to Chicago and back. Trip out was amazing: painted Desert at sunrise, crossing the Rockies at sunset, sleeping through the flatlands in time to wake up to cross the Mississippi and then through amazing rolling Illinois farm country.

The trip back was just the opposite and dead boring, missed all the nice scenery and got almost nothing but endless Great Plains.

I had the same (near-) experience many years ago, taking the train from Seattle to Chicago: it was the Amtrak line that ran through the Rockies, and made a stop (?) at Glacier National Park: mountain scenery prominently featured in Amtrak’s advertising. However, the train left Seattle in the evening, and by the time the sun rose next morning, we were well away from the Rockies, and far into the flatlands. And the Great Plains really are PLAIN!

Nebraska’s statewide Covid-19 Website has been upgraded to include a lot more information than it had before. It now has breakdowns by ethnic groups, gender, and other data points, such as running fourteen-day averages of new cases by county.

Currently: 19,452 total cases
Fourteen-day average most cases by county: Douglas (seat Omaha, #1). Panhandle counties Scott’s Bluff (seat Gering) and Morrill (mine, seat Bridgeport) tied for #6 (not good considering the low population of my county)
Largest age group: 20-34
Men lead women in all categories (illness, recovery, hospitalisation, death). This is flipped from the Panhandle, where women lead in all categories 2 to 1.
Deaths: 282
Largest age group: 65-74

A scenario for how Trump might try to steal the election. newsweek.com

nope. still won’t happen.

this is the ‘thrown into the house scenario’ based on four and only four specific ‘swing’ states going to biden.

the tipping point analyses right now say biden would win with more than just those four.

as to #2. so what? we have said time and again it is not one ‘national’ election that can be thrown into chaos by dictat/fiat or screaming. prove it on a precinct by precinct level. vague ‘theories’ aint gonna cut it.

it also depends on how much biden actually won each of those 4 swing states. Is Arizona or PA or, whoever really going to admit they dropped the ball and their controls were infiltrated all over the state? not a chance.

long before any ‘federal investigation’, the first thing that happens is recounts. recounting the ballots. verifying the accumulated totals looking for manipulations of the reported results. and when they’re done and biden re-wins by 10 points, no governor, secy of state or legislature is gonna ignore those results.

further, *depending on the state because they are different* while some states allow the legislatures to select electors, that choice must be made before and in lieu of a popular election. ie their own state laws DO NOT allow them to ignore an election they just had and instead choose electors merely because they didnt like the outcome or even call it into question.

NetworkKed  Jul 3, 2020 • 8:59:37am

I’m mostly worried about two election problems.

1. Voter suppression. This isn’t anything new - R’s have been playing this game for decades, making it harder and harder to vote. Honestly most places this is not an issue (or at least no more than 2018) this year because the states have been too busy with other catastrophes to pass new laws in this vein. The former VRA states which are closing polling places in black communities are the exception.

2. Electoral college advantage - Clinton won the popular vote in 2016. The national polls were one or two points off, but she won by almost three million votes. And Trump was prez because the antiquated, small-state, land-owner-biased constitution scores the election in a way that plays to the Republican party’s strengths. Looking at the maps this year it doesn’t look like a problem… while Biden is ten points ahead. But I bet you can can come up with scenarios where he wins by eight million votes, 5+ percent, but because of the structural advantage Trump somehow slithers out a path to 270 EV.

So I believe there should be some balancing between small and large states in the national government - it does serve some legitimate purposes. But the Senate should be where that happens, not the presidency. Unfortunately it’s not going to be until the reverse situation occurs or there’s a fucking revolution that it’s going to be fixed.

re: #316 Welcome to The Imbleachment (dangerman)

prizes in cereal boxes!

Breakfast cereal was such a racket when the boomer toddlers were all being baby-sat in front of morning TV. All of the kid’s shows and cartoons were sponsored by food manufacturers (the evenings were sponsored by cigarettes and cars) and I know that what I wanted for breakfast was very much driven by what I saw on TV. So many cereals back then actually had the word ‘Sugar’ in their name, and we wanted sugar.

I agree with you, and yet I think people should start making a lot of noise about ways Trump might try to steal the election. Bringing those things out in the open tends to make him back down.

indeed
even so, i’d prefer if these articles werent so breathless omg here’s whats gonna happen and were more - yes, it’s possible, but not really viable, let alone at all likely.

trump won 2016
it was a sort of perfect storm
he got lucky in lots of ways
he’s no svengali - he can’t just wave a hand and make things happen

further (and just guessing) there is something about these transparent power grab scenarios that i think would if carried out be distasteful to an awful lot of R’s

i think very few would would see it as legitimate.

The first toy I remember getting out of a cereal box was a Mustang (plastic car) out of Alpha-Bits. The three of us fought over the toys, but I got that one because it was yellow. Had it been red or blue, no way would I have gotten it. :D

from biden

Invest $20 billion in rural broadband infrastructure, and triple funding to expand broadband access in rural areas. High-speed broadband is essential in the 21st Century economy. Yet far too many rural communities still don’t have access to it. Rural Americans are over 10 times more likely than urban residents to lack quality broadband access. At a time when so many jobs and businesses could be located anywhere, high-speed internet access should be a great economic equalizer for rural America, not another economic disadvantage. Investing $20 billion in rural broadband infrastructure has the potential to create more than a quarter million new jobs. The Biden Plan will triple Community Connect broadband grants and partner with municipal utilities to bring cutting-edge broadband connections to communities across rural America.

A Cranky One  Jul 3, 2020 • 9:14:12am

I’ve been thinking about what might happen if there is, in fact, a presidential debate.

As a narcissist, trump can’t tolerate any criticism or laying of blame on him. I’d love to see Biden push that button repeatedly, which would guarantee the orange bloat losing it.

Biden should make every remark a put down, a sarcastic dig or statement blaming the SCROTUS for the current situation. He shouldn’t engage with the insults we know rump will produce, just keep pushing that button, over and over.

I realize that Joe will need to lay out a vision for the future and positive reasons to vote for him, but ads can make that argument. Getting rump to lose it and start raging and ranting during the debate might just help people see how morally, intellectually and emotionally unfit he is for the office, at least some who don’t pay attention.

I’d also love to see Biden flat out call rump a liar and con man, but I doubt that will happen. On the other hand, pointing out that only 3 miles of new wall has been constructed, that the economy is in the dumpster, that unemployment is far above the level at the start of the term, that over a hundred thousand Americans have died due to his incompetence, etc. will put rump on the defensive where it really hurts.

Donald, tell us how destroying the strong economy you inherited from our administration makes America great? Donald, tell us how your response to COVID, a response which has other countries saying they pity the US and which has resulted in over a hundred thousand dead makes America great?

I’d wager his response would be a spectacular eruption of bile, name calling, DARVO and blaming others. And he’d be unable to continue after, refusing to let go of the narcissistic injury.

Also too, the problems we’ve been seeing in rural schooling during stay-at-home are an example of what they miss by lacking access. It’s not just twitter and facebook (which can and do provide up-to-date information about accidents, disasters, and all those good things).

Once upon a time, we all would have considered that a pathetic, needy, and stupid con man with no redeeming qualities would not be a legitimate president of the United States. Once upon a time, we would have considered that openly embracing white supremacy would have been illegitimate for the president of the United States. Once upon a time we would have thought that openly refusing to consider a nominee for the Supreme Court just because a Democrat made it would have been illegitimate.

That Orion Township in Michigan with the white woman drew out her weapon against a black woman and her two daughters?

It’s not going very well for them….

A Clarkston couple was charged Thursday with felonious assault, a day after two racially-charged videos of the same incident clearly show a white woman pointing a gun at a Black mother and her two daughters outside an Orion Township eatery.

Jillian Wuestenberg, 32, and Eric Wuestenberg, 42, were each charged with one count of felonious assault, which is punishable by up to four years in prison. They were arraigned in 52-3 District Court before Magistrate Marie Soma, with a $50,000 personal bond.

Eric Wuestenberg, who is identified on the Oakland University website as a veterans support services coordinator, also was fired.

“We have seen the video and we deem his behavior unacceptable,” university spokesman Brian Bierley said, adding he “has been notified that his employment has been terminated.”

My home state of Indiana has its highest day in two weeks but it’s not a real trend yet - we’ve been basically flat for 2+ months jittering in the 300-500/day range. My local county had a bad spike which has cooled some in the last week.

Hopefully the thunderstorms moving in later in the weekend will cool things down a bit. Minnesota is still sustaining their 3-4% new positive percentage, which is a good number but it’s greater than 0. It’s mostly younger people, with the majority of cases in the 20-29 age bracket; stupid young conservatives who think they’re indestructible and don’t realize they can carry and spread the disease before they have symptoms.

Trump honed his debating style during his 2016 primary debates, until he decided he was bored with them and determined their emphasis on answering questions was not playing to his base. He will continue to pull the same stunt — ignoring the real questions, blaming both the pandemic and the economic collapse on the Chinese, and (if the stock market retains its buoyancy thanks to the Fed) take credit for the continuing strength of the market. He will pivot to attacking Biden for Hunter’s involvement with Ukraine and lie about his successes.

After repeatedly promising to release his taxes and failing to do so, he has learned that he can say and do as he pleases and, somehow, his base goes along with the theory that any bad news is due to the “Deep State” undermining him. How does a moderator force a participant to answer a question when the candidate’s goal is only to promulgate his campaign message and turn every answer into promoting that message even when it has no ties to the actual question?

Which is why I think Biden’s best approach is to create narcissistic injury by directly blaming rump. I believe that will push rump over the top and he’ll lose it. Put him off his game. I liked the previous comment that Biden should laugh and dismiss rump’s statements; being laughed at would definitely trigger a rage response, as would blaming rump for the problems he’s created.

Rump is a bully. Push back, taunt and show him for the weak, shallow coward he is.
