pretty sure if you’re an officer, you just resign your commission. My dad resigned his rather than get bumped to major and having to go from being a chaplain to being an administrator.

Commissioned officers are different and once past a certain amount of time (I want to say 6 years) to make up for the cost of training, they can pull the plug. NCOs & enlisted though can’t do that.

Officers serve under a different type of contract than enlistees. Officers can quit at pretty much any time unless the president overrides it.

I was once fired from a job, and when my partner at that job was fired six months later, I asked him what happened. He told me that in those six months, they went through four individuals trying to fill my shoes. However, that was at a small company where cultural fit was important.

The NY Times, New Yorker, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune all had glowing reviews when the book came out. It may be the subsequent dishonesty and hypocrisy of Vance himself that color current perceptions of the memoir, one that I’ve never read.

My impression is that problem can happen with software that is poorly documented; if the programmer departs, the company may never be able to patch it up and may, instead, be forced to spend a fortune rewriting from scratch — and there may not be time to succeed.

Maher is a contrarian. He’s only viewed as “left-ish” because America and it’s institutions lean so far to the right that when trying to be a contrarian asshat, naturally you’ll seem to be against more right wing shit than left.

The TL/DR version of it is he’s a white boomer who alternates between Edgelord for Old People and Old Person Yelling at Cloud.

The GOP is a terrorist organization  Sep 12, 2021 • 7:08:28pm

This reminded me that I had written a page I wrote back in 2013 when Elder was on the old Piers Morgan* show on CNN. It’s classic Larry Elder - enough “whatabouts” to feed an army, and white supremacist talking points.

Larry Elder has previously apologized for former LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling, gave a platform to Colin Flaherty, who promoted the BLACK MOB VIOLENCE hysteria around the time of the George Zimmerman trial in 2013, along with advancing white supremacist talking points on his own about the so-called “Knockout Game.”

*Whatever you want to say about Piers Morgan, he does a good job of not taking Elder’s bait, and Elder gets visibly flustered during the process.

It was a player and mangled. I bought it from the guy who bought it from the guy who tore the back binding off trying to make it look like an earlier model. Had a friend who sanded the back down like a Stratocaster and painted it black because it was “antiqued” like a Salvation Army desk of drawers. It was a mess to begin with. But it played sweet. Weighed a ton. Never weighed it, but I suspect it was in the 9 pound range. Cheap straps and hard floors after 4 hours will kill you.

the back

Notice the separation on the front. That line is part of the 3 piece top.
And I’m an idiot too. I threw the original bridge away. That’s how smart I be.
the front

Fretless wonder indeed.
Long story short, I sold it for $2500.
PS. Bought it for $300.
That’s a win.

That’s the thing people need to keep in mind when they wonder why Dems can’t get anything done in the Senate. It’s not a matter of lack of will. It’s that there’s literally no margin of error. Not with a GOP that is willing to reflexively draw party lines before anything is even put to paper.

The GOP is a terrorist organization  Sep 12, 2021 • 7:40:48pm
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has signed a bill that aims to stop social media companies from banning users or nixing posts based solely on political opinions — the latest salvo by Republicans, who claim that these tech giants are censoring conservative users.

The new law requires social media companies with more than 50 million monthly users to disclose their content moderation policies and institute an appeals process. It would also require such social media companies to remove illegal content within 48 hours.

Under the state legislation, users may sue the platforms to get their accounts reinstated, and the Texas attorney general would be able to file suits on behalf of users.

That’s easy to explain: Joe Manchin is looking out for Joe Manchin.

“If you don’t need bridges fixed or roads fixed in your state, I do in West Virginia,” he replied. “I need Internet in West Virginia. I got water and sewage problems. I have got all the problems that we have addressed in the bipartisan infrastructure bill,” Manchin said in an interview with ABC.

Downie drew attention to one key letter repeated over and over by Manchin. “I, I, I. This isn’t unusual phrasing for Manchin.”

He cited a New Yorker profile where the senator rattled off the fears he has about the West Virginia economy. They were all about him too.

“I can’t lose one job. I don’t have one to spare,” said Manchin.

“The decisive factor for Manchin isn’t the debt, the pandemic or the inflation rate. It’s that one bill has what he wants, and the other doesn’t,” said Downie.

He plans to run in 2024 on a platform of having brought home the bacon for WV like Byrd used to do, while also standing up to Biden and his “socialist” spending. And if the bipartisan bill tanks, he changes up the script to blasting “elite” progressives for standing in the way of getting money to his constituents.

You do not know how many times I went back to that article in the eight years that followed. At least they had the good sense not to run a similar article with Trump.

In other news, a woman named Ana Caudill dug up an article about Karen Swallow Prior from 1992 in Buffalo, when KSP was dragging around a Tupperware container with what she said was a 24 week old aborted fetus. This inspired a reminiscence from me, because this was a thing at the time.

The current eruption of the Fagradalsfjall volcano is now well past 36 hours, which makes it one of the longer lived episodes.

Unfortunately Iceland is a land of dreary weather with rain every day, and the forecast calls for rain every day for … the rest of the month.

Which means the live-stream cameras, and there are only one left working that can see the cone, is blind.

And a rumor I have not verified is that the authorities wouldn’t even let locals on the paths yesterday. Perhaps too much rain, and the hillsides are too steep and people will fall, and the rescue vehicles won’t be able to get to them?

Anyway, even after only 6 hours or so of eruption the lava had formed a very deep pool because it is all draining into one spot, a low spot on the west side of the volcano. This part of Geldingadalir valley hadn’t gotten very much lava the prior several months (most of the flow has been to the south and east.)

Clouds cleared just enough so the camera on top of the long ridge to the southeast can show what is going on.

The eruption is ongoing but the lava never fills the crater, instead gushing out near the base, filling lava tubes, running downhill to form a large lake on the west side of Geldingadalir valley. In said lake there is a point that becomes a fountain:

Unfortunately there are no closer cameras that live stream.

That’s a huge pool of hot lava over there but the rain has cooled the top enough to form a skin.

It’s not customary for us puny humans to think in these terms, but this is just a tiny example of what has happened continually on this planet. There are places in the US where one can go and see hundreds to thousands of feet of basalt stacked up from eruptions.

Some of these eruptions happened after the first peoples to inhabit this continent and they would have seen them (see Idaho, for example of recent large lava flows.)

Obsidian - Panum Crater

Some real good sites as well in California (Panum Crater/Mono Lake area) and in Oregon as well (Lava Butte and the caldera south of Bend, OR). I think I posted some pictures at one time from an obsidian flow made in the latter that is less than two thousand years old. The trail on the lava flow that dammed the Deschutes River is an interesting one.

NY has a bunch of data about hospitalization rates for people with covid.

4% of those admitted have been vaccinated. That means 96% are unvaccinated. That’s the key topline. Want to avoid hospitalization? Get vaccinated.

Unvaccinated people were 21 times as likely to be infected or hospitalized statewide. The trends offer another strong indication that the vaccines saved tens of thousands of people this year from severe disease.

Of the nearly 1.3 million COVID infections recorded in New York between January 1st and September 5th, just 58,030 involved breakthrough infections, where the virus thwarts a person’s vaccine-backed immunity. The state health department recorded 4,585 hospitalizations among fully vaccinated people, while unvaccinated residents accounted for 97,244 emergency visits.

This breakdown would mean, so far this year, the shots reduced the chances of being infected or hospitalized by 95%, which is in line with the vaccine effectiveness measured in clinical trials.

A question which should be raised loudly, if not for anything else, to rattle the antivaxxers cages a little:
“How stringent is the verification that someone has actually been vaccinated? As you know, there is an ongoing problem with fake vaccine cards, with varying degrees of sofistication, up to and including using legitimate lot/batch numbers to evade detection.”

We had one blow through just a couple of miles away back in 2019, but that was overnight; I didn’t even know it was a tornado until the next morning. My parents lived through a large tornado outbreak on Palm Sunday, 1965, in which their small town was devastated by an F4 tornado. Almost 30 years later, another tornado blew through that same town, and I remember my parents pulling my sister and I out of school to go to our grandmothers’ aid. More recently, the town nearest to my parents was struck by a tornado outbreak in 2013; my dad sent me a video of the storm from their front porch, while my mom was trying to find a path out of town to escape the onslaught.

On a per capita doses administered basis, Israel does look much better than the countries above, but I think it misses something - namely that there’s a large number of people under age 20. Israel might have done better getting initial doses out, but they’ve bumped up against the demographics.

In US, 25% are below 20. In Israel, it’s 35%. World Bank indicates 28% are under 14. Malta has just 14% under 14. I suspect the countries above Israel have much lower percentages under age 14, which contributes to a higher overall vaccination rate.

Though as the dK piece points out, the recall should NOT really be as close as it likely will be, but that the main problem with defeating a relatively unpopular initiative is the usual one - fervent/fanatical support among the minority, apathy/disinterest among the majority. Rather like what happened with Proposition 8 - though unfortunately, there is no court recourse (AFAICT) to a gubernatorial recall.
Apparently, though, the thought of having an idiot like Larry Elder in the Governor’s Mansion seems to have frightened a lot of voters into action…

If you live in Alaska, you’ll have to go somewhere in Canada, or travel over 1,700 miles to Seattle, Washington.

The world is rather different than it was in 1973. Most early abortions in the US are medication abortions. And there is plenty of experience to be tapped based on restrictions in a number of Latin American countries on how to get medications to women who need them.

Ironically, with a court decision in Mexico last week decriminalizing abortion in Coahuila state (and by extension, the rest of Mexico), it now may be easier for a woman in South Texas to cross over to Piedras Negras for an abortion than to go to New Mexico.

That said, a lot of women ARE going to be driven underground, but anti-abortion fanatics don’t care.

Perusing dKos this morning, I read some encouraging news regarding the California recall “election”: apparently late polling shows Newsom escaping recall by a healthy margin: the numbers showing the race close (or losing) from earlier seem to have been outliers, and the “No” vote seems to have solidified (one fervently hopes) at about at least 55%.

Any CA Lizards able to confirm?

If 2016 taught us anything, it’s that polls mean nothing. People lie.

When Sandra Day O’Connor voted to make Bush president in 2000, it was clearly already a partisan institution.

She eventually came to regret that.

Too little, too late.

I read that as well over there. Markos is pretty dialed in to California politics. The SurveyUSA 51-40 for removal in late July/early August scared the fuck out of a lot of us. His mask mandates however, have kept our schools from being hot zones, and the fear of turning into Texas or Florida has even most Republicans having second thoughts about throwing our state into the shitter.

Drudge: “Shock poll” finds Democrats see Trump supporters and unvaccinated as biggest threat to the nation.

Fact check: True. The Trump nuts and sociopath unvaccinated right wingers are the biggest threat to the nation, though one could argue that Fox is the bigger threat by weaponizing the know nothing audience into believing whatever it is that Fox propagandists are spewing in any given day to distract, misinform, and deflect attention from the growing body count from covid and that it’s nearly all unvaccinated people causing the death toll to soar, hospital systems to collapse, and all the misery and harms that go along with this.

I wonder if Newsom’s constantly having to deal with the wildfires incinerating vast regions of his state has helped his public image? I recall seeing numerous clips on the news about this fire or that fire in CA, and Gavin was usually there - not just showing up for a photo-op, but making it look like he was seriously keeping an eye on firefighting efforts.
That said, do you know if there has been a major ad blitz one way or another? I would have thought that the Dems would want to make sure the defeat of the recall was a major priority (the apathy issue and all that) - I f I were Gavin Newson, I’d have had a well-crafted message out on the airwaves for (at least) months: especially when it looked like a buffoon like Larry Elder was going to might be the “plurality” winner….

re: #270 Jay C

The ad blitz I’ve seen has been from the Democratic side for about a month. I don’t know that the GOP has financed more than the recall petition. There are no ads for Elder that I’ve seen, so he’s just going on being the most popular Republican in a field of 46. So he could win with about 10% of the yes vote if it got to 50% +1.

Notice also that nobody’s talking to any GOP reps from California about the recall, nor are they really campaigning for it.

Measles is a sporadic problem in Poland. There’s a lot of anti-vaxxers there particularly opposed to the MMR vaccine.

I’ve been doing texting to get out the vote. Since we’re not texting people we think likely to vote to oust Newsom, I can’t tell you what the ratio of “for” versus “against” might be, but almost all the contacts I’ve heard from have said they’ve already voted. And the recall was always a question of turnout.

I don’t watch enough commercial media to answer that, but I understand that Larry Elder’s Spanish language ads have seriously pissed off the latinx community. Which is good to hear.

I don’t think it’s accurate. Worldometers has 9/11/21 at around 719 deaths from covid, though 9/9/2021 had over 2,000 dead. More died this week from covid than on 9/11 proper.

re: #256 lawhawk

Lordy is that article dumb and super obviously fear mongering. Yes, putting your kids name on something conspicuous, like a backpack, could give a predator an advantage in pretending they are a friend or authority figure, it’s been known to happen in some cases of abduction. But really? I guess the good thing is that it’s easy to remedy, new backpack or removal or covering the name with something. Never mind that sending kids to school right now is a crap shoot on whether they get sick and/or spread covid around. And if you live in a place with a shitty governor it’s even more fun.

Of course there are child predators out there. Adults have to be diligent and worried about crap like this. But not to the point it needs to be a hot news item and stoking more worries. It’s hard enough right now to have a sense of normalcy, this is just another stupid tone deaf and disconnected bunch of shit from some of the usual suspects. Assholes.

Let me take this moment to give a shoutout to the free app Calibre for MacOS. It’s remarkably useful for share-ware.

Too bad the author is now in the situation where his name is a bit awkward: Kovid Goyal.

I used to use Calibre back in the day when I dealt with eBooks - but with my Sony Digital Paper DPT-RP1
