          Popular Jamaican dancehall slang   
Gyalis - English Translation: Player Definition - Slang term for a male who is skilled at seducing women, normally by tricking them into thinking they are the love his life, when in reality, only sexual favours are desired from these women. He manages relationships with multiple women, normally with each woman being oblivious that there are other women in his life. The literal translation for gallis is “girl-list”
          Jamaican proverbs and sayings (part 2)   
People of different nationalities have developed certain expressions which they use to comment on situations, give advice or warning, without using the day-to-day speech of ordinary conversations. These expressions are of two types – Proverbs, which give advice and/or warning and Idioms. An idiom is an unusual way of stating an idea.
          Popular Rastafarian words and phrases   
Rastafarian words and phrases are a combination of English dialect and Jamaican Patois spoken primarily by Rastafarians. The Rastafarian language is actually much easier to learn than Jamaican Patois because it’s mostly a play on English words (e.g. “overstand” for “understand”,“downpress” for “oppress”,“ I-ditate” for “meditate” etc…) rather than being an entirely separate dialect as with Jamaican Patois.

          Turismo de narcóticos, tendencia al alza.   



La legalización de la marihuana en el Estado de Colorado ha disparado el interés por viajar a dicha parte de Estados Unidos, según muestran las estadísticas de hotels.com. El turismo del porro o de narcóticos también es una tendencia en Jamaica, pero en otros países como Uruguay se quiere evitar este tipo de viajes mientras que en Holanda se busca una mayor regulación.






Desde principios de año las personas mayores de 21 años pueden comprar y consumir marihuana "para uso recreativo" en Colorado. La venta, limitada a 28 gramos, se permite sólo en 160 establecimientos especializados del Estado. A este producto se le aplica un impuesto estatal del 25%.
Existen además medio millar de farmacias en Colorado donde se puede comprar marihuana para usos médicos.
Durante los tres primeros meses del año, la búsqueda de hoteles en la ciudad de Denver, capital de Colorado, ha aumentado un 25% respecto al mismo período del año pasado, según hotels.com.
En cualquier caso, la posesión de marihuana en los aeropuertos está prohibida, así como en parques nacionales y estaciones de esquí.

Jamaica
Al tratarse de una actividad ilícita y para evitar posibles problemas con la justicia, los turistas deben demostrar que realmente son excursionistas y no policías de incógnito fumándose un cigarro de marihuana delante del guía. 
Uruguay
Por otra parte, la ministra de Turismo y Deporte de UruguayLiliam Kechichián, recordaba recientemente que, tras la regularización del consumo de cannabis en el país, no se producirá "bajo ningún concepto" un paquete turístico relacionado con su consumo.
Y es que según ha recordado la ministra de Turismo, la ley estipula que solo podrán acceder al cannabis los residentes uruguayos.
Las autoridades uruguayas han remarcado que el objetivo de esta legislación responde a la necesidad de buscar nuevas vías para combatir el narcotráfico, después de que las más represivas se hayan mostrado obsoletas.
Holanda
En mayo de 2011, entró en vigor en Holanda una ley que limitaba la venta de marihuana en los 'coffeeshops' en tres provincias del sur del país. Ver Holanda pone fin al turismo de los "coffeeshops".

Sin embargo, en noviembre de 2012 el alcalde de Ámsterdam anunció que los turistas extranjeros podrán seguir accediendo a los 220 coffeeshops de la ciudad y consumir marihuana libremente. Ver El turismo del porro se mantendrá en Amsterdam.
Ámsterdam recibe anualmente unos siete millones de turistas, de los que se estima que aproximadamente medio millón acude a esos establecimientos a fumar marihuana.

          The power of verse   



Jamaica gave birth to reggae
the great musical genre of today
encapsulating the country's clear blue seas
and sky scraper coconut trees

Bob Marley's rasta communication
spoke to people of every nation
with a positive vibration
speaking the message of love and contemplation

Ours too is an optimistic missive
Be inclusive not dismissive
Use the power of verse
to improve our world and universe

          Slimmed-down Garvey sculpture gets thumbs down from Jamaicans   

KINGSTON, Jamaica -- "A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots." These famous words were spoken by Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Jamaica's first and probably most revered national hero.


          Jamaicans pay final respects to Lady Cooke   

Jamaicans from all walks of life congregated at the East Queen Street Baptist Church, downtown Kingston, today to pay their final respects to the late Lady Ivy Cooke, widow of former Governor-General, Sir Howard Cooke. Among those in attendance at the official service of thanksgiving were: Governor General Sir Patrick Allen and Lady Allen; Prime Minister Andrew Holness; Opposition Leader, Dr Peter Phillips; former Prime Ministers, Portia Simpson Miller, and Percival J Patterson; President of the Senate, Tom Tavares- Finson; members of the diplomatic corps, the Government and Opposition.


          Heavy Reggae Recording with Prince Polo & Clive Chin   
 TEASER FROM MY "EVENING NEWS" SESSION W/PRINCE POLO


Just positively amazing stuff, I don't think you can say enough about LeRoy's driving guitar work, and just how great The Stirrers continued to be after Sam departed. He and Leroy remained very close and, in his mind, I don't think Cooke ever really left. "Sam was a Soul Stirrer until the night somebody murdered him," Leroy said.

"Sam was as close as any blood relative I've ever had... me and Sam had that special connection." Heartbroken, Leroy had lost his best friend, and within a few months he quit the group as well. He maintained that there was a lot more to Sam's death than met the eye, and that he was killed for not playing the game the way certain people wanted him to...

Leroy eventually wound up back in Chicago where, in addition to getting a job driving a bus for the CTA, he would become a member of the Jubilee Showcase house band. He began performing some secular material with a friend of his from The Clefs of Calvary named Calvin April, and somehow they wound up recording at American for Sound Stage 7 in 1968.

I'm Alright Now
SS7 2612
"We recorded that in Memphis. It was just before the assassination of Martin Luther King, in fact, they were checking into The Lorraine Motel as Calvin and I were checking out. We even talked for awhile to some of the people with him, like Jessie Jackson, The Staple Singers, and some of the others. The following night after getting back to Chicago, I turned on the TV, and it had just happened. That's how I first heard about it... by the way, Soul X 2, was NOT my favorite name, it was given to us by the DJ from, WLAC radio in Nashville, Hoss Allen. I later renamed us Branding Iron, and that's the way that story goes!"

In the wake of the tragic killing of Dr. King in their own backyard, Al Bell was faced with re-creating the newly independent Stax Records into something more than the sum of its parts. He immediately signed The Staple Singers and hooked up with Jesse Jackson and SCLC compatriot Larry Shaw in Chicago in an effort to keep the label on the cutting edge. While in Chicago, Pervis Staples took him to see 'Father of The Blues' Willie Dixon who had recorded a demo he wanted Bell to hear.

Willie had written Right Tight and Out of Sight with a soul duo like Sam & Dave in mind. Bell liked the song, but was more interested in signing the guys who were singing it... Leroy and Calvin - now known as Branding Iron.

The record began to make some local noise, which led to an appearance on another Chicago institution, Soul Train. Things were definitely looking up! The flip of that first Volt release, Slave For Love was written by another legendary Blues figure, J.B. Lenoir. Arranged by Gene Barge, the 45 was about as Chicago as you could get. Despite Bell's assurance that "you guys are going to make so much money, you won't be able to count it all!," the record never made the national charts and, after one more Volt release, they were let go. Although Branding Iron would cut another 45 for the tiny Stag label (produced by Leroy's brother Dillard), by then he was back on the road with The Soul Stirrers, where he would remain for the rest of his life.


"I thank God for allowing me to hang around as long as I have, after literally taking away all of those that once walked along with me when this journey started... they're all gone. Now that's the scary part, because I know the next soldier to fall will definitely be me. Sometimes I wonder why was I left as the last Soul Stirrer standing, and then something seems to say, it's not yours to reason why. It's not for any man to understand God's plan."

Leroy Crume was called home on October 20th.

After Huey Meaux was hauled off to prison in 1968, his friend Shelby Singleton brought the duo he had been cutting hits on at Grits 'n' Gravy to Music Row to record what has to be the only Soul song ever to feature both an electric sitar and a pedal steel guitar! Peggy and Jo Jo are just belting it out, while top shelf 'Nashville Cats' Jerry Kennedy, Pete Drake, Chip Young, Wayne Moss, Kenny Buttrey, Charlie McCoy, David Briggs and Bob Wilson burn down the house! One of my favorite records, they don't come much better than this.

Chip Young left us on December 20th,

BOBBY KEYS

Space Captain
A&M 1174
I don't think we knew it at the time, but for a lot of American kids going to high school in the 1970s, Joe Cocker was as close as we got to Soul Music. When Mad Dogs & Englishmen was released in 1970, it featured covers of Ray Charles, Otis Redding and Sam & Dave tunes, alongside the Beatles, Traffic and Stones. With an all-star band put together by Leon Russell, we would soon recognize the name of every artist on there, especially that of the saxophone player, Bobby Keys, who would be cutting Sticky Fingers with The Stones within a month of those initial Fillmore East dates. This great tune we have here never fails to bring me back...

Bobby Keys passed December 2nd,
Joe Cocker on December 22nd.

          Regional Roundup: Top New Features This Week Around Our BroadwayWorld 6/29 - THE LITTLE MERMAID, RAGTIME, NEWSIES, and More!   

BroadwayWorld presents a comprehensive weekly roundup of regional stories around our Broadway World, which include videos, editor spotlights, regional reviews and more. This week, we feature THE LITTLE MERMAID, RAGTIME, NEWSIES, and more!

Check out our top features from around the BroadwayWorld below!


Central Pennsylvania: Contributor Marakay Rogers reviews NEWSIES at the Fulton Theater. She writes "Matt Farcher, who plays Jack Kelly, leader of the newsboy throng, is certainly energetic as well as a fine vocalist; local audiences will possibly not recognize him, though they've seen him before - as the Beast at Fulton's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. His performance here may be a bit more informed, however, by his prior performance as Che Guevara in EVITA in Maine, as well as having played revolutionary Enjolras in LES MIS in the past. (That "LES MIS turns positive" vibe is strong with this show.) Kate Fahrner makes for a tough, but charming, potential love interest as Katherine Plumber, intrepid early female reporter who is trying hard to not be her father's daughter - a major plot point of the show. If there's a real criticism to be had of the book, it's Katherine's part; the amazement over a female journalist shouldn't have been so great, given that Nellie Bly was a major expose writer for Pulitzer (the big bad of the show) in 1887 and that her famous Around The World stunt was done for Pulitzer in 1888. The historic newsboy strike was in 1899, when Bly had only recently (and temporarily - she did war correspondent work in World War One) retired. Writer Fierstein presumably based Katherine on Bly, but the show is set just late enough that anyone relatively familiar with history will find the lack of prior existence of Bly irritating."


New Zealand: Contributor Monica Moore reviews BONNIE AND CLYDE. She writes "Bonnie, played by Nicolette Nes is superb. She has the look, the voice and the style. And the top quality performances just keep coming at you. Blanche (Katrina McConnell) is excellent along with Buck (Brian Wolfman) Preacher (Simon Chapman) and well, actually they're all pretty darn good! Special mention to the young Bonnie (Samara Bayliss and Medody Lui-Webster) and Clyde (Tim Cloves) who deliver Great Performances. The set is engaging and designed by the well-known John Fausett who cleverly incorporates and ensures the story is kept interesting."


Minneapolis: Contributor Karen Bovard reviews SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE at the Guthrie Theatre. She writes "Crucial to the success of any production of this show are the two leads. Randy Harrison is suitably difficult and awkward in Act 1 as Seurat, and far slicker as his great grandson George in Act 2, where he seems more in command. Act 1 belongs to Erin Mackey as Dot, who is sexy and sympathetic and sly and sings with great feeling. She's also fully credible as the elderly wheelchair bound Marie in Act 2; it's a startling, funny, and moving transformation. All the members of the strong ensemble take on new roles in Act 2, and part of what makes this second act work so well are the bold choices they've made in sketching in their characters. The music swells with real grandeur, thanks to their ensemble power, an excellent mic system, and a full 13 piece orchestra behind them, helmed by conductor and pianist Mark Hartman."


Oklahoma: Contributor Ronn Burton reviews MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET at the Lyric Theatre. He writes "Director Dave Steakley wisely steps back and lets his boys go to town when necessary, yet his subtle guidance of the tone and flow of the show does not go unnoticed. The costumes by the reliably-proficient resident designer Jeffrey Meek are period-perfect yet fashion-forward. Helena Kuukka's lighting and Adam Koch's sets work hand-in-hand seamlessly - the colors and patterns playing off each other consummately. Important to note: the musical performances wouldn't be as impeccable as they are without Anthony Risi's sound design, which subtly yet perfectly enhances the recording studio vs. live performance effects throughout the evening."


Long Island: Contributor Melissa Giordano reviews RAGTIME at East Islip's BayWay Theatre. She writes "Among the talented cast, Chazmond Peacock makes a superb Coalhouse; intense, great voice... he's a natural for the role. Coalhouse is the beau of Sarah (and father of her child) portrayed exquisitely by Amanda-Camille Isaac. Ms. Isaac's striking portrayal of poor Sarah is a roller coaster of emotions including a gorgeous rendition of the hopeful song "Wheels Of A Dream" with Mr. Peacock. Additionally, kudos to Mike Press who is an outstanding Booker T. Washington, Coalhouse's mentor. On Ms. Waller's clever creative team, Bob Butterley's bi-level set ideally fills the open stage. Rolling pieces, tucked away on the sides, are used throughout. Also, the fun here is that you get to use your imagination a great deal. The music, on tracks, is coordinated by Eizabeth DeGennaro who is also part of the cast. This is enhanced beautifully by Jessy Gill's choreography and Joseph Kassner's stunning costumes."


Kansas City: Contributor Alan Portner reviews JERSEY BOYS at Starlite Theatre. He writes "Jersey Boys offers up super production values with this touring show. Portrayals of Massi and DiVito are a little one dimensional, but the singing, acting, production, and dancing make up for any lack. The supporting cast is excellent. Jersey Boys is a little strange to get used to. It is an excuse for a concert of great music. The music does not advance the story much except in parallel in the documentary. Most of the first act is required for the audience to get used to the style, but the final forty minutes grabs the audience and transports them back to the golden age just prior to the Beatles in the Doo Wop period. The audience ends up loving the performance."


St. Louis: Contributor Chris Gibson reviews SEUSSICAL at Stages St. Louis. He writes "Ryan Cooper is a perfectly disarming and amusing Cat in the Hat, with nimble movements and well-timed comic delivery of lines that bring forth smiles and laughs from young and old alike . You can just see that he's having fun. Cooper and Company draw the audience into the tale immediately with the rousing opening number "Oh! The Things You Can Think," and Cooper takes on several different comedic roles throughout the proceedings. As JoJo, Colton James Kastrup is a very believable little boy, and definitely possesses just the right voice and enthusiastic innocence that fit the part. Anthony Arpino absolutely shines as Horton, with a warm and deeply concerned performance that makes you genuinely care about his plight. April Strelinger is delightfully vainglorious as Mayzi and oozes attitude to spare. Leah Berry is simply terrific as Gertrude McFuzz, a single-feathered bird who's in love with Horton, but having trouble getting him to realize it. Her take on "Notice Me, Horton" is a sad and sweet delight."


Rhode Island: Contributor Andira Tieman reviews THE DIANA TAPES. She writes "The Diana Tapes is a tightly-written one act with just four actors. Playwright James Clements takes on the role of biographer Andrew Morton with Sam Hood Adrain as Michael O'Mara, his publisher. The two of them receive and transcribe recordings made by Princess Diana's friend James Colthurst, played by Jorge Morales Pico. The attention to detail with the sets and costumes is impressive for a production barebones as this. Battered chairs are swapped for fancy ones when the scene changes from the office where Morton and O'Mara frequently meet to Diana's residence where she talks with Colthurst. Diana's iconic wedding ring, now Kate Middleton's, is replicated. While the men's costumes are necessarily basic, Diana gets several glamorous outfit changes that suit the scenes perfectly."


St. Louis: Contributor Chris Gibson reviews THE LITTLE MERMAID at The Muny! He writes "Emma Degerstedt is delightful as Ariel, effectively conjuring up the image of a young mermaid who wants more out of life, and is positively driven to do so. Her voice is splendid as well, as would befit a character who uses it as a bargaining chip so she can gain her true love. Jason Gotay does fine work as the object of her affections, Prince Eric, and you genuinely root for them to connect. Emily Skinner is perfectly menacing as Ursula, creepily costumed and brimming with malevolent intentions, Skinner makes a memorable impression. Jerry Dixon is commanding and surly as King Triton, bringing plenty of bluster to the role. James T. Lane is enthusiastic as Sebastian, the red Jamaican crab who is also a composer. The undeniably catchy "Under the Sea" gets a great workout under his guidance. Jeffrey Schecter is funny and friendly as Scuttle the seagull, and Spencer Jones is awfully cute as Flounder. Kevin Zak and Will Porter are quite good as Ursula's moray eel minions; Flotsam and Jetsam, respectively. Frank Vlastnik is also sharp as Chef Louis/Pilot, specializing in seafood dishes as the Chef, which naturally rubs Sebastian the wrong way. Richard B. Watson rounds out the cast as Eric's manservant/confidante, Grimsby. Of course, the large ensemble also adds to the merriment, and gives the show an even wider scope."


Chicago: Contributor Rachel Weinberg reviews MOBY DICK at Lookingglass Theatre Company. She writes "MOBY DICK also features three extraordinary female actors in its ensemble: Kelly Abell, Cordelia Dewdney, and Mattie Hawkinson. While each essays various roles, they also come together as the three Fates-an inventive and eerily effective device. Decked out in Sully Ratke's magnificent and haunting costumes, they provide the warning of what's to come upon the play's conclusion. At various points in the production, Abell, Dewdney, and Hawkinson also embody various elements of nature: the ocean, a whale carcass, and even Moby Dick himself. Outside of the skeletal structure of the set, there is no literal whale onstage-but that is perhaps one of the most striking representations of Moby Dick in the production."

          TCM in July: Highlights   
It's summertime! July is my favorite month, and it's made even better thanks to the July schedule on Turner Classic Movies.

Ronald Colman is the Star of the Month. 22 Colman films will be shown on Thursday evenings in July, including three TCM premieres. I'll have more here on the Colman lineup next week.

Another big part of the July schedule is the TCM Spotlight Series TCM Presents the Master of Suspense: 50 Years of Hitchcock. The movies run on Wednesdays and Fridays, beginning July 5th.

There is a free online course which accompanies the series; the class runs from June 27th to August 7th. Details may be found here.

This month's Sunday morning Noir Alley lineup consists of THEY LIVE BY NIGHT (1949) on July 2nd, T-MEN (1947) on the 9th, GUN CRAZY (195) on July 16th, DEADLINE AT DAWN (1946) on July 23rd, and BORN TO KILL (1947) on July 30th. All are noir essentials; I especially love BORN TO KILL (seen here) with sinister Lawrence Tierney, angelic Audrey Long, and one of the really great noir dames, Claire Trevor.

Below are a few of this month's additional TCM highlights. Click any hyperlinked title to read the corresponding film review and learn more about the casts.

...I really like NOBODY LIVES FOREVER (1942), showing on the evening of July 1st. John Garfield and Geraldine Fitzgerald star.

...TCM seems to be in holiday weekend mode with the lighthearted musicals VIVA LAS VEGAS (1964) and ON THE TOWN (1949) airing on Sunday, July 2nd.

...THE BRIBE (1949) is a stylish film noir starring Robert Taylor, Ava Gardner, John Hodiak, Charles Laughton, and Vincent Price. It's showing on Monday, July 3rd.

...It wouldn't be Independence Day on TCM without showings of YANKEE DOODLE DANDY (1942) and THE MUSIC MAN (1962)! They're here, along with Robert Stack in JOHN PAUL JONES (1959), Cornel Wilde and Michael Wilding in THE SCARLET COAT (1955), and the MGM musicals TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME (1949) and SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS (1954). An all-around fun day of patriotic films and musical Americana! P.S. If you can't catch YANKEE DOODLE DANDY on the 4th, it's also shown July 2nd.

...MGM's colorful version of LITTLE WOMEN (1949) airs as part of a birthday tribute to Janet Leigh on July 6th. June Allyson, Peter Lawford, Elizabeth Taylor, and Margaret O'Brien costar.

...Director Anthony Mann is honored a week after his June 30th birthday with a seven-film tribute on Friday, July 7th. The eclectic titles include the fun "B" musical THE BAMBOO BLONDE (1946), starring Frances Langford.

...The July 7th Hitchcock lineup includes Charles Laughton and Maureen O'Hara in JAMAICA INN (1939), which I saw in a beautiful new print last March, with two of Hitchcock's granddaughters and his colleague Norman Lloyd in attendance.

...I SHOT JESSE JAMES (1949) is an interesting film from director Samuel Fuller, starring John Ireland, Barbara Britton (seen at left), and Preston Foster. Definitely worth a look. It's showing on the 8th.

...Greta Garbo and John Gilbert star in the memorable FLESH AND THE DEVIL (1926), showing on July 10th. Essential silent film viewing.

...July 11th features seven Doris Day musicals! The enjoyable lineup includes favorites like ON MOONLIGHT BAY (1951), BY THE LIGHT OF THE SILVERY MOON (1953), and MY DREAM IS YOURS (1949). Curiously, ON MOONLIGHT BAY airs after its sequel, SILVERY MOON, so those wanting to watch in order may wish to record them for later viewing.

..."The Bottom of the Bottle" is the theme on July 12th. Titles include NIGHT INTO MORNING (1951), with Ray Milland as a professor who starts drinking after his family is killed in an explosion.

...KID GLOVE KILLER (1942), an early credit for director Fred Zinnemann, is one of my all-time favorite "B" movies. Van Heflin, Marsha Hunt, and Lee Bowman star in this police lab procedural. It's on July 14th.

...I'm fond of ALL THE BROTHERS WERE VALIANT (1953) and was surprised to discover I haven't yet reviewed it here. It's an imperfect film but its attributes include a trio of great leads in Robert Taylor, Ann Blyth, and Stewart Granger; attractive Technicolor photography by George Folsey; and a stirring score by Miklos Rozsa. It airs early on July 15th.

...The 20th Century-Fox Western THE SILVER WHIP (1953) has its TCM premiere on July 16th. It's a pleasing film which stars Dale Robertson, Rory Calhoun, and Robert Wagner, supported by James Millican and Lola Albright. A Western can't miss with a cast like that!

...One of the best days on the calendar, as far as I'm concerned, is July 17th, with some interesting lesser-known Westerns on the schedule. FLAME OF THE WEST (1945) was a very pleasant surprise last summer, a well-plotted film with Johnny Mack Brown, Joan Woodbury, and a very good against-type performance by Douglass Dumbrille as a U.S. marshal. STAMPEDE (1949), seen at the left, is a terrific film with Rod Cameron, Gale Storm, and Brown. Also showing that day: WESTERN HERITAGE (1948) with Tim Holt, Nan Leslie, and Richard Martin; SOUTHWEST PASSAGE (1954) with Cameron, Joanne Dru, and her then-husband John Ireland; and THE GUN THAT WON THE WEST (1955) with Dennis Morgan.

...Another great theme is "Joel McCrea in the '30s" on July 19th. A whopping 10 early McCrea films will be shown, including the wonderful comedy THE RICHEST GIRL IN THE WORLD (1934) with his frequent '30s costar Miriam Hopkins.

...Natalie Wood receives a six-film birthday tribute on July 20th, including the great American classic Western THE SEARCHERS (1956), directed by John Ford.

...Movies about large families and hard-to-parent children are featured during the day on July 21st. Titles include YOURS, MINE AND OURS (1968), starring Henry Fonda and Lucille Ball as widowed parents of large broods who decide to merge their families into one.

...Esther Williams and Red Skelton star in MGM's colorful BATHING BEAUTY (1944) on Saturday, July 22nd.

...The somewhat unlikely team of Fred MacMurray and Joan Crawford costar as honeymooning spies in the WWII thriller ABOVE SUSPICION (1943), based on a novel by Helen MacInnes. MacMurray and Crawford have very good chemistry in a film which is somewhat flawed yet overall quite enjoyable. It's shown on July 23rd.

...There are lots of great Westerns on TCM in July! July 24th features a day of James Stewart Westerns, including all-time favorites such as WINCHESTER '73 (1950), BEND OF THE RIVER (1952), and THE FAR COUNTRY (1954), all directed by Stewart's frequent collaborator, Anthony Mann.

...It's "Singing Sailors" day on June 28th, with a lineup which includes Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra in ANCHORS AWEIGH (1945) and ON THE TOWN (1949).

...BEAUTY AND THE BOSS (1932) is a delightful pre-Code confection starring Warren William and Marian Marsh, with droll support from Charles Butterworth. A must, on July 29th.

...On July 30th there's a film directed by Yasujiro Ozu which isn't in my collection: RECORD OF A TENEMENT GENTLEMAN (1947). That's a "must" for my DVR. Other Ozu films showing that night: TOKYO CHORUS (1931) and TOKYO TWILIGHT (1957).

The above are just a few of the interesting titles showing this month! For more on TCM in July, please visit the complete schedule.

          Visiting New York's Oldest and Newest Transit Stations   
On Sunday, Elliot and I decided to visit New York's newest subway station — 34th Street-Hudson Yards — the 7 train's farthest outpost on Manhattan's West Side. The terminal just opened this month, and it's the city's first new station since 1989 (that was the year that an obscure patch of New York called Roosevelt Island got subway service).

But we wanted to give our visit a twist. Before going to Hudson Yards, we'd try to find New York's oldest train station.



It wasn't easy. Many of the original subway stations have been abandoned or replaced. After some online sleuthing, I figured out that the oldest remaining "transit structure" is located at or around the Van Siclen Avenue station on the J-Z line in Brooklyn. Now, this isn't a technically subway station; it's an elevated platform. But the structure is roughly 130 years old.

Courtesy of the NYC Subway site:
The portion of the el from Pennsylania Avenue (3 blocks east of Alabama Avenue) to Van Siclen is unrebuilt, mostly cast iron el structure dating back to 1885, the oldest remaining transit structure in the city. Van Siclen was the terminal of the original el; remnants of a three-track terminal/turnback portion of el is visible just east of the station. The following section, from Van Siclen to Crescent Street, dates to 1893.
So Elliot and I took the F train to the L, and then got off at Livonia Avenue. I figured we could walk from there to our destination. Unfortunately, I got my Van Siclen stops confused (there are stations by that name on the 3, the C and J-Z). So we walked a good distance through gritty East New York before I found the right spot.


At last, we reached the J-Z Van Siclen station, which may or may not be New York's oldest transit station (it's at least adjacent to the oldest stretch of track still in use). As I photographed the scene, a guy shouted the F-word repeatedly. (Ear muffs!) I'm pretty sure I was the only transit tourist in the neighborhood.

There's not a whole lot to recommend the Van Siclen station. It looks like most el stops in Queens or Brooklyn. It does have some attractive stained glass, but I don't think that dates from the 1800s.


We took the J back into Manhattan, switched back to the F and then to the 7. Along the way, Elliot saw a beer-swilling man throw up in the train.
"Maybe he's allergic to something, Daddy." 
"You could say that."  
Finally, we reached the sparkling new Hudson Yards terminal. It's an impressive sight, especially after hanging out in a rusty el station across town.


The station is gleaming and white, with touchscreen displays and gorgeous mosaics decorating the ceiling.


Most amazing: It has a functional bathroom! (Okay, the paper towels were already gone, but at least it didn't smell like urine.)


Elliot's verdict (and mine): The newest station in New York trumps the oldest.

Score one for progress over nostalgia.

          Revolution bounce into Philadelphia to tackle the Union   

FOXBORO — The MLS summer doldrums tend to knock one’s focus a tad off-kilter, but at the same time the league standings are so clogged a grind-it-out mentality is required to stay in the playoff places.

Such is the dilemma facing the Revolution today when they visit the Philadelphia Union for a nationally televised game (5 p.m., FS1) at Talen Energy Field in Chester, Pa.

The Revs (5-7-5), in search of their first road win in nine tries (0-6-3), need to insure they get off to a fast start against a Philadelphia side that has been a schizophrenic bunch this season. Still, the Union (5-7-4) are not without bona fide threats, especially with talents like forward C.J. Sapong and midfielders Haris Medunjanin and Alejandro Bedoya, a Boston College product, on hand.

“I think we certainly have to be ready to play,” Revolution coach Jay Heaps said. “Philly is a good team. We have to make sure we understand what they’re trying to do. They’re a difficult opponent to play.”

The Revs are in the midst of a stretch of four matches in 15 days. That busy schedule, combined with the losses of players to injury and international call-ups, have caused Heaps a huge headache.

Scott Caldwell, Daigo Kobayashi, Antonio Delamea and Xavier Kouassi are all nursing various ailments. Je-vaughn Watson is due to join the Jamaican national team for the coming CONCACAF Gold Cup, while Juan Aguodelo and Kelyn Rowe have been called into the U.S. national team camp.

With that in mind, Heaps gave his available players an optional day off Thursday after Wednesday’s 2-1 victory against D.C. United in the U.S. Open Cup. Rookie Brian Wright connected on his first professional goal early in the second half to give the Revs a berth the tourney quarterfinals against the New York Red Bulls on July 13 back at Harvard.

Keeper Cody Cropper said it is important for the players to avoid any distractions.

“It’s a collective group and I think everyone brings something that certain players don’t bring, but at the same time we have to be able to adapt as professionals and I think the group did a very good job of that (Wednesday) night,” Cropper said. “I think we have to have the same mentality. (Wednesday) we conceded an early goal yesterday and the group responded very well and got two goals back. We have to have the mentality to put the last two league games (losses to Chicago and Toronto) behind us and take that (Open Cup) win from (Wednesday) and roll it into Sunday.

“I think playing in front of an away crowd is a huge disadvantage for us. I don’t know about other teams but, for us, playing in front of our fans is a huge advantage for us, so we really have to dig in and find that mentality that supersedes playing away from home. We need to battle and take those points.”

          Post Church Fun   
I decided to ride the bus home Sunday after church (usually a friend gives me a ride) so that I could have more witnessing opportunities than normal (feeling a bit starved after running out of tracts in Jamaica). So I handed my last available tract (not last existing--I had more at home) to the bus driver as I boarded and proceeded to sit down.

Then the Lord told me to get up and move to the back, so that I could speak with a young man who was sitting back there. He was wearing a T-shirt that was advertising Subway's new breakfast menu, so I asked him if he worked for them. He does. So I asked him about their breakfast promotion, and he told me about it (not that I'm going to patronize them any time soon, but, hey, it was something that he was an expert about, so I gave him the stage).

Then I asked him if he had ever taken the Good Person Test. He hadn't, so I gave it to him. He failed, so I asked him about the consequences on Judgment Day. He really didn't want to focus on that, so I reasoned with him about its necessity, if God is good and just. Then I told him about God's mercy, the Hope that we have because of Jesus Christ, and the Power to overcome sin through His resurrection. I then encouraged him to read his Bible and bid him adieu, because I had to connect to another bus.

I thought I was going to have to initiate the conversation, but the Lord had other ideas. I had tried to give a Gospel tract to this man on the way to church, about three hours before, and he had rejected it. So I was surprised when he asked me if I go to church and what church is is. I told him where Living Hope meets for services and then asked him where he goes.

He doesn't go to a "church," per se (at least not by modern definition). He goes to different regular Bible studies. He said that he's fed up with churches who don't teach the truth (that's understandable), and one of the beefs he had is the existence of a literal, eternal Hell.

Actually, that's understandable, too. I forget who said that he'd love to rip the teaching from the pages of the Bible but dared not to (I think it was C.S. Lewis, or maybe Spurgeon), but I wholeheartedly agree with him. I don't like the idea of Hell, and I would much rather it did not exist, but, since I didn't make the world, or write the Book, I'm not going to take such liberties and try to edit the Word of God in order to make it more bearable for me to watch lost people die in their sins.

Besides, there's no good reason for anyone to go to Hell, since Jesus paid the fine for all. I tried to get to that point with him, but he wanted nothing to do with it. Oh well. Everyone else heard how unreasonable he wanted to be and how simple the Gospel is. May he and they join the rest of us in receiving eternal life. Thanks for praying.
          Adventures in Jamaica   
So I went to Jamaica last week to visit the family that I began sheltering back in August. They finally made it to Jamaica the week before and had invited me to come see them. So I gave up one shift at work and spent Tuesday through Thursday night with them, traveling Friday morning to get back in time for work Friday afternoon (never had to tell anyone at work where I was, either, heh).

I made sure to bring Gospel tracts with me on the trip, but, as usual, not nearly enough. I had to ration my tracts every day just to have some on Thursday. People were just as receptive to tracts as I experience here in the States. However, the common language is a dialect of English called Patwah (I might be misspelling that), and, while it is possible to understand it, it is difficult to speak it back to them. Fortunately, most of them understand American English quite well.

I had several good conversations while waiting with my friends at the bank for more than an hour and a half (boy, business is done differently in Jamaica!). I was at first afraid that the security guard might stop me from handing out the Million Dollar Bills I had brought (leftover from St Patrick's Day; they are all gone, now), but then I realized that they really do business differently in Jamaica! Passing fliers, of whatever sort, is just part of life.

Just like driving like a maniac, cutting people off, being cut off, honking the horn, and being honked at. I am a "by-the-book" driver, so I would be dead driving in Jamaica. But it certainly was fun! Next time I go, I'm going to have to get a step ladder and preach in Spanishtown. There are always big crowds there, and often there are radios blaring the truth right in the middle of them (not like people stop and listen).

Although most people would probably think that Jamaica is a Christian nation, in truth, all they do is claim it. The religion class in school teaches about the gods and practices of religions around the world. Christ is not exalted. This reminded me of the Bahamas, where they teach you to be a good person, but don't tell you the Gospel or even the Ten Commandments. Not very Christ-like, I must say. He not only taught the Ten Commandments, He explained their spiritual nature, and then became the sacrifice that not only cleanses us from sin but also aids us in following the spiritual requirements of the Law (Matthew 5, Romans 6). So I'm definitely looking forward to re-engaging the Jamaican culture, whenever I get to return.

Please pray for the people I was able to speak to and to give tracts to. Please also pray for my neighbor Mike, whose alcohol-destroyed liver is giving out. Tomorrow is actually his birthday, and he's not happy about spending it in the hospital. He's not saved, either, so please pray for that, too.

God bless. Thank you.
          Jeff Horn upsets Manny Pacquiao in controversial decision   

Jeff Horn of Australia and Manny PacquiaoChris Hyde/Getty Images

"The Battle of Brisbane" was supposed to be a walkover for Manny Pacquiao, a potential tune-up for a rematch with Floyd Mayweather, but Jeff Horn — and the judges — had another idea.

Horn came out swinging, literally, and announced his presence with authority. But after going toe to toe with Pacquiao for eight rounds, he got battered, bruised, and bloodied in the ninth round and seemed to lose all momentum towards the end of the fight.

Just when it looked like Pacquiao was going to win an easy decision, the judges took over and gave the hometown fighter the nod.

Just listen to the shock in the announcers voices as Horn is announced as the winner.

Horn was clearly in the fight early on, as Pacquiao was bloodied early on. But then came the ninth round and Horn barely got out of it alive.

In fact, the referee warned Horn after the round that he was inclined to call the fight, telling Horn, "I think you've had enough."

But Horn stayed in the fight and hung around long enough to get the home-town decision.

In the end, if there was any doubt about who actually won the fight, here is Stephen A. Smith, on how Pacquiao was robbed.

          México derrota 2 a 1 a Paraguay    

México venció hoy a Paraguay 2-1 con una selección alternativa a la que juega la Copa Confederaciones y se declaró listo para defender a partir del próximo jueves el título de la Copa de Oro de fútbol.

En el último encuentro amistoso previo al certamen de la Concacaf, los mexicanos mostraron mejoría y con un buen desempeño en el primer tiempo se impusieron. Rodolfo Pizarro (m.19) y Elías Hernández (m.26) convirtieron por los ganadores y Antonio Bareiro (m.47) descontó por los paraguayos.

Después de las primeras escaramuzas en las que ninguno de los dos cuadros se hizo daño, México se adueñó de la pelota y comenzó a inquietar a la defensa paraguaya, vencida en el minuto 19 cuando, tras una falla de Orbelín Pineda con todo a favor, Rodolfo Pizarro rescató un rebote y puso el 1-0 con un derechazo a segundo poste.

México mostró mejor fútbol que en el partido del pasado miércoles en el que superó 1-0 a Ghana; en el 26 amplió la ventaja con un penalti bien cobrado por Hernández, quien después de anotar, tuvo dos llegadas más, en el 17 a pase de Jesús Gallardo, y en el 41, pero sus ataques fueron detenidos por el portero Antony Silva.

Cuando estaba a punto de expirar el primer tiempo, Paraguay descontó con un gol de cabeza de Bareiro, quien recuperó un disparo estrellado en el travesaño y convirtió el primer gol de los sudamericanos.

En la segunda mitad, los paraguayos del entrenador Francisco Arce comenzaron mejor y dominaron las acciones en la mitad de la cancha hasta que cerca del minuto 20, México recuperó la pelota, aunque apenas se acercó a la puerta rival.

Aunque buscaron la portería contraria los rivales mostraron poco fútbol en la última parte del encuentro, de pocas emociones.

Con este partido, México terminó sus encuentros de preparación para la Copa de Oro en la que, con un equipo de segundo nivel, defenderá el título a partir del 9 de julio cuando enfrentará a El Salvador y luego lo hará ante Jamaica y Curazao. Paraguay reaparecerá en agosto contra Chile en la eliminatoria mundialista de la Conmebol.

          La jamaicana Thompson vuelve a demostrar su superioridad en los 100 lisos   


          THE OLD PHILOSOPHER RETURNS, OR THE ADVENTURE OF THE EMPTY APARTMENT.   
When I was a boy, I lived in a tiny row house in the new development of Kew Gardens Hills in Queens, New York.  One day, my father and I rode by bus to the Jamaica Public Library where I checked out, on my father’s card, a fat, stubby book containing all four novels and fifty-six stories chronicling the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.  I was enthralled, and the next Christmas, my parents gave me my very own copy, which I read and re-read until the cover frayed.  I even joined an association of Sherlock Holmes fans called The Baker Street Irregulars and every three months received their journal, filled with faux scholarly articles about disputed minutiae of the life of the great detective.  Arthur Conan Doyle, the author of the Holmes stories, aspired to a more distinguished career than scribbler of lowbrow detective fiction, but the popularity of the stories trapped him.  Finally, in 1893, he could stand it no longer and contrived to kill off his hero in the famous Reichenbach Falls finale of The Final Problem.  Conan Doyle was rewarded nine years later with the coveted knighthood, becoming for all time Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  Like his musical contemporary, Arthur Sullivan, his aspiration to the higher reaches of art had been rewarded by a tap on the shoulder and elevation to the peerage.  But the Holmes fans, who were legion, would not leave poor Sir Arthur alone, and in 1903, with a contrivance that would make a modern soap opera writer blush, he brought Holmes back from the dead in The Adventure of the Empty House.

I have been absent from these pages for only two weeks, not ten years, my time completely occupied by moving, if not to an empty house, at least to an empty apartment.  But the worst of the move is now behind me, thanks to the efforts of my son, Tobias, and my wife’s grandsons, Noah and Ezra, who gathered here two days ago to unpack my books and put them on the shelves in alphabetical order.  Although there are still many pictures to be hung [including one large canvas of abstract blue splotches which my wife and I agree looks better horizontal than the intended vertical], I am sufficiently settled in to return to my daily animadversions against the contemporary scene. 

As I anticipated, the world took no notice of my absence.  The two most notable political developments in the interim were the regrettable loss of Jon Ossoff in Georgia’s 6thCongressional District and the apparent inability of the Senate Republicans to complete the medical evisceration of the poor.  The second, which gives us reason to hope, is far more important than the first, for all the attention the by-election received.  With the soupçonof Tiggrish optimism I have managed to recapture during my absence from blogging, I allow myself to adopt the happy view that this and other by-elections portend big losses for the Republicans in the 2016 Congressional elections.  If we can produce the same magnitude of shift from Republicans to Democrats in three dozen CDs around the country, we will put paid to Paul Ryan’s Ayn Randesque adolescent fantasies.

Far more troubling is the increasing evidence of the profound mental instability of the President.  Rather than speculate on what the future holds, I will refer you to this recent analysis by my son, Tobias, who thinks more deeply and passionately about current political affairs than I can manage.

To be brutally honest, I am deeply fearful that Trump will act impulsively and dangerously on the international scene, moved in his infantile narcissistic way by an imagined slight.  We must ask seriously whether the senior military would collectively refuse to obey an irrationally self-destructive order coming from the Oval Office.

In His Last Bow, published on the eve of World War I, Holmes says to Watson, “There’s an east wind coming, Watson." Watson misinterprets the meaning of the words and says, "I think not, Holmes. It is very warm."
"Good old Watson! You are the one fixed point in a changing age. There's an east wind coming all the same, such a wind as never blew on England yet. It will be cold and bitter, Watson, and a good many of us may wither before its blast. But it's God's own wind none the less, and a cleaner, better, stronger land will lie in the sunshine when the storm has cleared."
That was a simpler age, and neither Conan Doyle nor his readers could anticipate the horrors of Dachau and Buchenwald, of Dresden and Hiroshima and Nagasaki that lay not too far in the future.  Would that I could write with such sublime confidence of our own cold east wind.

          HISTORIA FUPI YA BOB MARLEY   
 
Alikataa kuandika urithi kwa kuamini kuwa marastafari huwa hawafi.
Robert Nesta Marley,ambaye baadaye alikuja kujulikana kama Bob Marley,alizaliwa Februari 6,1945 katika kijiji cha Nine Mile kwenye Parishi ys mtakatifu Ann huko Jamaica.
Baba yake Norval Sinclair Marley alikuwa mzungu na mama yake Cedelia Booker alikuwa Mjamaica mweusi.Historia ya maisha yake haitofautiani sana na wanamuziki wenzake wa reggae Peter Tosh aliyelelewa na shangazi yake na Bunny Wailer aliyelelewa na baba yake zaidi,ni historia ya huzuni iliyo muacha Bob Marley chini ya mzazi mmoja(mama yake) pale alipofiwa na baba yake akiwa na umri wa miaka kumi tu.
Norval Sinclair (baba yake Bob Marley) alikuwa nahodha wa meli na muangalizi wa mashamba,alikufa mwak 1955 akiwa safarini,wakati huo alikuwa na umri wa miaka 60.
Kifo hicho kilimfanya mama yake Bob Markey ahamishe makazi kwenye mji wa Kingston,huko Bob alikutana na Bunny Wailer wakawa marafiki na kujifunza muziki pamoja.Akiwa na umri wa miaka 14,
Bob Marley aliacha shule na kujiunga na chuo cha ufundi wa kuchomelea vyuma,muda wakewa kupumzika alikuwa na Bunny Wailer kwenye muziki,kipindi hiko mwalimu wao alikuwa Joe Higgs,

Muimbaji wa mtaani mwenye imani ya kirastafari.Chini ya Joe Higgs walikutana na Peter Tosh na kuungana naye.

Mwaka 1962 Bob Marley alirekodi nyimbo zake mbili za kwanza ambazo ni;"Usihukumu"(judge not) na "kikombe kimoja cha chai"(one cup of tea) chini ya muandaaji Leslie Kong,

lakini nyimbo hizo hazikukubalika sana.Mwaka 1963 akashirikiana na Bunny Wailer,Peter Macintosh(Peter Tosh),Junior Braithwaite,Beverly Kelso na cherry Smith n kuunda kundi la "The Teenagers" kundi hilo lilijibadili majina na kuwa "The wailing rude boys","The wailling wailers" na mwishowe "The wailers".

Mwaka 1964 na 1965 watoa vibao vikali kama "Usiwe na wasiwasi"(simmer down) na "Nafsi isiyokubali"(soul rebel)nyimbo hizi zilikonga nyoyo za Wajamaika wengi

Hata hivyo kufikia mwaka 1965 lilibakiwa na wakali watatu tu,yaani Bob Marley,Bunny Wailer n Peter Tosh,baada ya wengine kujiengua.

Mwaka 1966 Bob Marley alimuoa kimwana Rita Anderson na kwenda kuishi kwa muda na mama yake huko Wilmington,Delaware nchini Marekani..

Na kuibuka na imani kali ya kirastafari na kuja na mtindo wa kufuga nywele uitwao "dreadlocks".

Baada ya hapo Bob Marley na kundi lake la The wailers walitoa vibao kemkem vilivyoitikisa Dunia.

Kati ya vibao hivyo ni;Africa unit,Zimbabwe,Could oyu loved?,Iron lion zion,Is this love,Buffalo soldier na vingine vingi.

Huyo ni Bob Marley,mfalme wa reggae aliyepinga ubaguzi kwani hata yeye mwenyewe alisema "Wananiita chotara,lakini mimi siegamii upande wowote bali nipo upande wa Mungu aliye niumba kutoka kwa weusi na weupe".

Hiyo ni biograph ya mwanaharakati huyo wakupinga ubaguzi."REST IN PEACE RASTAFARAE"

          Jamaicaanse Elaine Thompson wint 100m Diamond League Parijs in toptijd   

Olympisch kampioene Elaine Thompson heeft zaterdag de 100 meter gewonnen op de Diamond League-atletiekmeeting in Parijs. De 25-jarige Jamaicaanse sprintster won in afwezigheid van haar grootste concurrente Dafne Schippers met een tijd van 10.91.


          5 new female MPs who have had fascinating journeys to Westminster   

New MPs

The 2017 general election produced a record number of female MPs, with 208 out of the 650 MPs now women, overtaking the 196 female MPs returned in 2015.

Over half of these women, 119, are Labour MPs, with 67 being part of the Conservative minority government. The prime minister and home secretary are both women, as are the shadow home secretary and shadow foreign secretary.

However, the proportion of female MPs currently stands at 32%, which is clearly way off from reflecting the national population as a whole. Staggeringly, the 2015 election was the first time ever that the total number of female MPs Britain has ever had overtook the number of men in that single parliament.

Sam Smethers, chief executive of women's rights group the Fawcett Society, told Business Insider that British politics has been "embarrassingly slow" in moving towards fairer representation for women in Westminster.

"The number of women MPs in parliament has broken the 200 barrier for the first time," Smethers told us.

"But while this is progress the fact remains that just 32% of our MPs are women, up from 30% before the election. We are moving forward at a snail's pace and this is embarrassingly slow.

"It is time for a radical new approach. We have to legislate to require the parties to select at least 45% women candidates."

Clearly, there is still work to be done. In the meantime, here is a handful of new female MPs who have had interesting journeys to Westminster.

Preet Gill, Labour, Birmingham Edgbaston.

Succeeding Gisela Stuart in being MP for Edgbaston was seen by many to be a tall order, and many thought it would be one of the marginal seats to go Tory from Labour in 2017. Stuart was a high profile leave campaigner, while her replacement Preet Gill backed remain. Nevertheless, Gill ended up increasing Labour's vote by more than 10% to become Britain's first ever female Sikh MP. Gill has previously been featured on a list of top 10 Sikh women in the UKfor the work she has done pushing women from BAME backgrounds into politics.

Kemi Badenoch, Conservative, Saffron Walden.

A Tory MP with a 24,000 majority in rural Essex might not seem particularly surprising, but Kemi Badenoch is someone who has experienced all sides of life. She worked at McDonald's as a teenager and went on to become The Spectator's head of digital. Badenoch was previously a London Assembly member and backed Brexit in last year's referendum.

She told the Evening Standard that Labour thinks "it owns minorities" and that they think race is everything.

"It's: ‘You’re black, this is what you care about’. But identity is multi-faceted. I’m black but I’m also a woman, a Mum. They talk about a ‘black community’ — there’s nothing really like that. People have the same issues wherever they come from. Schools. Hospitals," she told the Standard.

Layla Moran, Liberal Democrat, Oxford West and Abingdon.

Astonishingly, Layla Moran is the first Lib Dem MP to be female from a minority background. On a night of electoral mediocrity, gaining Oxford West and Abingdon was one of the few highlights for the Lib Dems, won after a campaign focusing on opposing Brexit in a heavily remain-voting constituency. Moran is also the first MP to be of Palestinian descent, her mother being from Jerusalem. She has lived in Belgium, Greece, Ethiopia, Jamaica and Jordan and speaks four languages including Arabic and Greek.

Emma Dent Coad

Emma Dent Coad, Labour, Kensington.

One of the shocks of the election was the Labour gain of the Tory safe seat of Kensington by just 20 votes. 62-year old Emma Dent Coad was the winner that night, but her elation at victory soon turned to horror at the Grenfell Tower fire, which happened in her constituency. The tragedy happened just four days into her tenure as an MP, but she dealt with the disaster as if she was an experienced MP.

In her maiden speech on June 22 she said: "The burnt carcass of Grenfell Tower speaks for itself, and has revealed the true face of Kensington. The mask has dropped. We have poverty, malnutrition, overcrowding, poor maintenance and, underlying this, a lack of care. The people who have been failed want justice and accountability, and an honest and transparent process to achieve it."

Marsha de Cordova, Labour, Battersea.

In one of the signs that election night was not going the way Theresa May had planned, Battersea went from being a safe Tory seat to Labour. Marsha de Cordova became the London constituency's first Labour MP since 2010, overseeing a 9 point swing. De Cordova is registered as blind after being born with the eye condition nystagmus, and was previously chief executive of the South East Vision charity, which aims to help those with vision impairments.

          Konshens - Jamaican Dance   
itunes pic
Konshens is well on route to becoming a musical powerhouse. Internationally recognized for his contribution to the reggae-dancehall genre, he is now winning hearts among the casual gaming audience with his latest single "Jamaican Dance" featured in the 8-million selling blockbuster Just Dance 3 video game from Ubisoft. His musical career began in early 2005 as part of a duo with his brother Delus. Although their international success has been rewarding, the brothers decided to pursue individual careers. When asked in an interview what prompted this decision, KONSHENS replied "To spread out the attack...we can’t just try to force ourselves onto people. We have to space it out and take time to move in." His debut single "Winner" quickly became a success with more than 670,000 views on YouTube. Its timing was impeccable as the world was in the midst of a financial crisis. It was an instant hit. Follow-up hits include: "This Means Money" and "Good Girl Gone Bad." Next up for Konshens is the release of his single "Jamaican Dance," produced by Ubisoft and Circle Road Records. The video was recently shot on location in Kingston and Montreal.

La Albirroja prueba a México en Seattle

La selección mexicana que participará en la Copa Oro buscará este sábado en el estadio CenturyLink Field, de Seattle, su puesta a punto ante la selección de Paraguay en su segundo y último partido de preparación. Tras una primera prueba resuelta el jueves ante Ghana, en Houston, México seguirá analizando con qué jugadores podrá emprender el torneo de naciones de la Concacaf que se jugará del 7 al 26 de julio en Estados Unidos.

Sin una idea clara de juego debido a que los jugadores no han jugado juntos, México resolvió el partido ante Ghana con empuje y experiencia, pero ante Paraguay será diferente porque el combinado sudamericano representa un reto mayor. El estratega paraguayo Francisco Arce formó su representativo con jugadores de la Liga local, misma situación para el equipo mexicano que seguirá bajo el mando del colombiano Luis Pompilio Páez, quien habrá de reportar a su “jefe” Juan Carlos Osorio el comportamiento de los jugadores para ser tomados en cuenta para el primer partido de la Copa Oro.

El Tri no contará para este duelo con el portero Moisés Muñoz y el volante Jesús Dueñas, quienes salieron del partido ante Ghana debido a lesiones, uno en la cabeza y otro en la rodilla pero ninguno de gravedad y ya trabajan en su recuperación. Paraguay aprovechará el partido para darle juego a jugadores que posiblemente sean llamados en las próximas convocatorias para los juegos de la eliminatoria en la Conmebol.

Aunque todavía tiene opciones matemáticas, la situación de Paraguay es compleja en las eliminatorias del Mundial, pues ocupa el octavo puesto con 18 puntos, a 5 de la selección de Chile, que es cuarta y ocupa la última plaza de clasificación directa. Tras el partido, México viajará el domingo hacia San Diego donde cumplirá su semana de entrenamientos hasta que el 9 de julio inicie su participación ante El Salvador. El 13 jugará ante Jamaica en Denver y tres días después cerrará la fase de grupos contra Curazao en el Alamodome de San Antonio.

Los jugadores Edson Álvarez y Alejandro Mayorga, quienes ayudaron al Tricolor en la Copa Confederaciones, aunque no fueron registrados, continuarán con su labor especial en la Copa y se integrarán al equipo el martes al igual que el defensa Luis Reyes, quien fue el único registrado para ambas competiciones.

Probables Alineaciones:
México: Jesús Corona; Jesús Gallardo, Luis Rodríguez, César Montes, Hugo Ayala; Jorge Hernández, Jesús Molina, Rodolfo Pizarro; Elías Hernández, Orbelín Pineda y Alan Pulido. Entrenador: Luis Pompilio Páez.

Paraguay: Antony Silva; Alan Benítez, Juan Escobar, Luis Cardozo, Salustiano Candia; Antonio Bareiro, Cristian Riveros, Marcos Riveros, Óscar Romero; Santiago Salcedo y Néstor Camacho. Entrenador: Francisco Arce.

Estadio: CenturyLink Field de Seattle.

Hora: 20:30.

          Fuerteventura.- FEM 2017 : En Primera Noche El Cotillo baila al ritmo que marca Locoplaya   



     El trío de raperos compuesto por El Bejo, El Crema y Uge acapara los elogios en una noche de auténtica fiesta de locura playera


Foto de Carlos de Saá
     El excelente directo de Cycle y la energía de Movits completaron una primera noche en la que también destacaron por méritos propios los locales Alisius, Familia Flotante y Bocinegro

La primera jornada del Festival Fuerteventura en Música (FEM2017) tuvo nombre propio: Locoplaya. El trío de raperos herreños, en el día de la Bajada de la Virgen, celebró su particular liturgia muy lejos de la ermita de La Dehesa, ataviados con material playero, cada uno con su albornoz, flotadores de llamativos colores, alguna colchoneta y regalando caramelos y bollería. Eso y sus rimas fáciles, casi onomatopéyicas, repetidas a coro por una multitud que copaba las primeras filas desde bien temprano para ver sobre el escenario de El Cotillo a esta auténtica revelación del trap (¿existe realmente?). 


Foto de Carlos de Saá


Su concierto, corto para sus fieles, respondió a la premisa que pactan antes de comenzar la ceremonia: locura en la playa. Y así fue en una noche que partió con un viento que amenazaba con restar público y erigirse en protagonista, pero que al final solo fue parte de la juerga locoplayera a la que también se unieron Alisius, Familia Flotante, Bocinegro, los suecos Movits y Cycle.  


El FEM, una de las principales apuestas culturales del Cabildo de Fuerteventura, ha hecho de nuevo un gran esfuerzo para presentando mejoras en las infraestructuras que le hacen único y diferente, tanto en el diseño de su escenario como en la prestación de los servicios audiovisuales, a la altura de los mejores festivales del país. Sin duda, ayer uno de los comentarios más extendidos entre los asistentes fue el extraordinario diseño, el decorado de la carpa, sus juegos de luces y pantallas de led en el frontal del escenario, y el excelente sonido, obra de la empresa Audiolux, bendecido por todos los grupos.

Alisius tuvo el honor de abrir el FEM2017. Banda con apenas dos años de existencia, reúne a músicos experimentados formados en otros proyectos, procedentes de diferentes lugares, pero con una premisa común: el rock. Roberto (voz), grancanario de Maspalomas, fue miembro de reconocidas bandas de funk y rock y controla el espacio escénico con pericia; Raúl (guitarra) deja entrever sus querencias por el rock progresivo en cada acorde, en cada solo; Guillén (bajo), un clásico del rock madrileño durante los 90; y Jordi (batería y percusión) con experiencia en varias formaciones de versiones, son una sólida base rítmica. Construyen sus propios temas con gusto, sin fisuras y con un sólido directo. Se quedaron con ganas de más. Y nosotros también.

 Foto de Carlos de Saá

La Familia Flotante tomó el relevo cuando la playa ya se estaba llenando. Con sus ritmos desenfadados, capaces de viajar de la bossa brasileña a la cumbia porteña, con escalas en el reggae jamaicano, lograron hacerse poco a poco con el público. Excelente directo, músicos expertos, esta banda compuesta por Alejandra Batista a la voz, Andrea Capoccia a la guitarra semiacústica, Gabriel Cavallini al saxo tenor y saxo barítono y Riccardo Capelli a la batería, nació hace dos años en la isla de Fuerteventura como un encuentro espontáneo de músicos con diferentes trayectorias musicales, experiencias y formación que unieron su pasión por la música en un espectáculo de calle lleno de vida.

Rara avis en una tierra poco pródiga en estos días a cultivar los ritmos más puros, hacen de su down home un viaje lisérgico, una especia de rock hipnótico y tántrico, circular, que empieza y termina en el mismo sitio, en el mismo acorde del que parte. Excelentes músicos, Imma Costanzo (voz, Napoles), Jordi Benito (guitarra, Barcelona), Raúl González (percusión, Asturias) y David Llop (guitarra, Barcelona), rindieron un precioso homenaje al blues acústico de la posguerra y a los grandes intérpretes del género, desde África hasta Norte América.

Con Locoplaya se acabó el rock. Este trío de rap formado por El Crema, El Bejo y Uge torcieron los ritmos hasta descoyuntar al personal con su rap costumbrista, plagado de términos tan canarios como las chácaras de su isla natal, El Hierro. Ataviados con albornoces, flotadores y colchones de playa, se encargaron de montar una animada fiesta justo de ese mismo instante. Canciones pegadizas, con estribillos coreados por media playa, supieron recrear en cada tema la esencia del verano. Como pez en el agua, en su hábitat natural, a pocos metros de la costa y sobre la arena de La Concha, Locoplaya marcaron un nuevo camino en el devenir del FEM y cerraron su atípico recital de forma coherente con sus formas, repartiendo sandías entre las primeras filas.

Movits! fue una de las gratas sorpresas de la noche. Con una propuesta que se fundamenta en el rap y que aborda otros estilos como el swing, el jazz, el reggae o el drum’ n bass, su directo tiene mucha energía, visualmente es muy atractivo por las coreografías de sus vientos y la permanente movilidad de su frontman y excelente cantante, Johan Jivin’ Rensfeldt, que a fuerza de interactuar con el público acabo por meterse en el bolsillo a una audiencia que se había quedado con más ganas de Locoplaya. Temas propios, casi todos cantados en sueco, alguna versión (de Placebo) y guiños incluso a Suzanne Vega. La base del grupo la forman su vocalista y Anders Rensfeldt (su hermano) que también toca la guitarra eléctrica, percusión, hace las bases desde su posición de Dj, pero también se transporma en MC en algunas canciones, aportando mucho color al grpo. Todo un descubrimiento.

Cycle, vetarana banda nacional formada por el reconocido productor David Kano, el cantante y actor Luke Donovan, la cantante y actriz La China Patino y el guitarrista Juanjo Reig, pusieron el broche final a la noche con su habitual descarga de electrónica y guitarrazos de rock. Un show potente cargado de hits, de auténticas piezas rompepistas. Mucha profesionalidad en la banda más importante de electrobreak que ha dado este país y que no deja indiferente ni parado a nadie. Es inevitable moverse al ritmo de canciones que saben encontrar la pausa para a renglón seguido, encontrar la intensidad suficiente para que llegue a continuación una especie de catársis, de éxtasis multitudinario, casi orgíastico y orgásmico.

U-Roy: The deejay's deejay
BY HOWARD CAMPBELL
Observer senior writer
Saturday, July 01, 2017


This is the 19th in our daily series highlighting 55 Jamaicans who broke down barriers and helped put the country on the world stage. Each day, one personality will be featured, culminating Independence Day, August 6.

What would the modern deejay be without U-Roy? It's hard to imagine.

Back in the 1960s, deejays or toasters were fillers for singers at dances. True, Count Matchukie and King Stitt called the shots in the early days, but U-Roy was the first to consistently attract a mainstream following.

The songs that did the trick were Wake The Town (And Tell The People) and W ear You To The Ball (with John Holt). Both were produced by Duke Reid.

That opened the door for work with other top producers like Bunny Lee and Lloyd “The Matador” Daley. U-Roy's toast to hit songs like The Wailers' Soul Rebel made him a star.

Perhaps his biggest hit was the hilarious Tom Drunk, done with Hopeton Lewis. This was another Reid production.

“Daddy Roy” is also a mentor. Big Youth, Dillinger and Trinity, who flourished during the 1970s, have cited him as a big influence.

For over 40 years, U-Roy has operated the Stur Gav sound system which gave a number of artistes their break, especially during its heyday of the 1980s. Josey Wales, Charlie Chaplin, Super Cat, Brigadier Jerry, and Early B are some of the acts who made their names on that 'sound'.

At 74 U-Roy is doing the live show circuit and recording with younger acts. Last year Nah Complain, his song with Canada-based deejay Kafinal, won a Juno Award for Reggae Recording Of The Year.

          Comment on Why I’m Saying Goodbye to My Big Fluffy Afro and Getting Locs by Melba Pearson-Mecham   
Hi! Congrats on joining the loc'd sisterhood! As a word of warning, be careful of the medicines you ingest. I suffer from debilitating migraines. My doctor prescribed topomax -- after a year on it I started losing my locs (along with other bad side effects like memory loss). My loctitian was able to work some miracles, but it took more than a year along with tons of biotin capsules to help my hair back. Jamaican castor oil is a lifesaver for your scalp as well. Anyways, enjoy this next part of your journey!
          Commenti su Svolta in Giamaica: marijuana legale per uso personale e medico di Muma   
Interessante soprattutto per il fatto che si porrebbe fine all'ipocrisia di chi considera legali sostanze nocive come tabacco e alcool ed al contempo criminalizza la ganja. Per quanto riguarda l' incremento dell' afflusso turistico probabilmente ci sarebbe ,anche se non è che il fatto che sia illegale venga visto oggigiorno come un deterrente per chi voglia recarsi in jamaica e fumarsi qualche spliff.
          Описание сортов кофе   
JAMAICA BLUE MOUNTAIN (ЯМАЙКА БЛЮ МАУНТИН) JAMAICA BLUE MOUNTAIN (ЯМАЙКА БЛЮ МАУНТИН) Кофе «Jamaica Blue Mountain», бесспорно, является одним из лучших сортов кофе, который растет на острове Ямайка в Карибском море. Кофе «Jamaica Blue Mountain» - это ямайский кофе, которым восхищаются знатоки во всем мире. Вкус его получается таким же насыщенным и приятным, как и аромат. Но не выпивайте его за раз - наслаждайтесь им в течение 20 минут. Этот кофе - большая редкость, большое сокровище, король кофейных зерен. Этот кофе большинство знатоков считает самым лучшим в мире. Его выращивают на небольших плантациях, расположенных на прилегающих к вершине Голубой горы участках склона на высоте более 1500 м. над уровнем моря. Обладает тонким изящным ароматом, полным богатым вкусом с легкими винными нотками. Напиток – насыщенный, с долгим и приятным послевкусием. Букет богатый, хорошо сбалансированный. Утонченный и нежный, с неповторимым вкусом и ярким ароматом он обладает неуловимым ореолом престижности и стоит в одном ряду с самыми дорогими автомобилями, спиртными напитками и лучшими швейцарскими часами.   KENYA AA ESTATE (КЕНИЯ) Кения  - восточноафриканская колыбель кофе. Лучшие кенийские сорта кофе продаются не просто под знаком «AA» или «AB». Их продают исключительно на аукционах и исключительно покупателю, предложившему самую высокую цену. И надо заметить, что на этих аукционах разгорается нешуточная конкуренция за кофе, благодаря чему и цены на него значительно вырастают. Кофе в стране выращивают по строгим правилам, проводят постоянные исследования, контроль качества. Даже мелкие фермеры знают своё дело превосходно. Награда этому - репутация кенийского кофе как одного из самых лучших в мире. Качество кофе находится под неусыпным контролем Департамента кофе Кении, который находится в Найроби. Он проводит проверку и маркировку каждого мешка зёрен. Мешки, на которых стоит отметка «АА», содержат кофе высшего качества. Его приобретают особые дилеры, поставляющие его гурманам. В общем, кенийский кофе можно описать так - отчётливая индивидуальность вкусового букета, ягодные, лимонные или апельсиновые вкусовые оттенки, высокая кислотность, истинные ценители любят кенийский кофе именно за его «кислинку». С каждой новой чашкой и даже с каждым глотком в нём можно уловить новые нотки, новые ароматы.   PANAMA BERLINA SHB (ПАНАМСКИЙ КОФЕ) Лучший кофе из Панамы. Впервые кофе завезли в Панаму в 1761 году. Главные районы производства кофе расположены на севере страны на грани¬це с Коста-Рикой, а также на тихоокеан¬ском побережье. Местные плантаторы утверждают, что панамская арабика обладает особыми качествами. Это связано с географическим положением Панамы - земли, которая разъединяет два великих континента. Кофе имеет приятный сбалансированный вкус и яркие, насыщенные фруктовые тона.    ETHIOPIAN YIRGACHEFFE (ЭФИОПИЯ ИРГОЧИФ) Кофе арабика с южной части Эфиопии. Его считают лучшим из эфиопских сортов арабики. По своим характеристикам этот кофе совпадает с сортом Эфиопия «Сидамо», но вкус более нежный, с душистым винным привкусом. Относится к мягким сортам кофе. ETHIOPIAN SIDAMO (ЭФИОПИЯ СИДАМО) Эфиопский кофе имеет очень разнообразную вкусовую гамму - в нём можно различить оттенки лимона, шоколада, вина, цветочный привкус, нежный и мягкий ароматический букет. По вкусовым качествам знатоки относят его к лучшим мировым сортам кофе. Выращивают его на горных плато южной Эфиопии. Он проходит мокрую обработку. Имеет особый индивидуальный винный вкус с фруктовым оттенком, но более выраженный и насыщенный по сравнению с другими эфиопскими сортами. Настой густой. Долгое послевкусие. Аромат тонкий, ярко выраженный, с фруктовым оттенком, запахом имбиря, апельсинов, абрикосов, мятного лимона, присутствуют оттенки карамели и шоколада.   HONDURAS MARCALA (КОФЕ ИЗ ГОНДУРАСА) Кофе был завезен в Гондурас из Саль¬вадора. После заморозков в Бразилии 1975 года его производство в этой стране стремительно выросло и составляет сей¬час ежегодно около 70 тысяч тонн. Южноамериканский сорт. Похож на колумбийский, но имеет более горький вкус с легкой кислинкой. Кофе средней крепости с винным привкусом и ярко выраженным ароматом.   NICARAGUA MATAGALPA EP (НИКАРАГУА МАТАГАЛЬПА) Центральноамериканский высококачественный сорт. Аромат  достаточно сбалансированный, с шоколадными оттенками. Вкус кисловатый, полный. PERU FAIR TRADE ORGANIC (КОФЕ ИЗ ПЕРУ) Сложный деликатный аромат, насыщенный цветочными и фруктовыми оттенками, с небольшой кислинкой, присутствуют оттенки красного вина и шоколада. Считается одним из лучших перуанских сортов, так как он имеет нежный, приятный и сладковатый с малой доли кислотности вкус. Помимо всего прочего, он обладает приятным послевкусием, с привкусом корицы и яблока. EL SALVADOR SANTA RITA SHB (ЭЛЬ САЛЬВАДОР САНТА РИТА) Это изумительный горный кофе. Кофе богат всевозможными ароматами, например, его, отличает сладковато-цветочный аромат с привкусом какао. Во рту остается цветочное послевкусие с хорошо различимым фруктовым привкусом. Напиток получается густым и сладковатым с умеренной кислотностью. По мере того как кофе остывает, в кружке у него появляется очень приятный мягкий привкус миндаля. PAPUA NEW GUINEA (ПАПУА НОВАЯ ГВИНЕЯ) Этот кофе имеет историю не менее интересную, чем вкус. В 1927 году саженцы с синей горы Jamaian, были перевезены на гористые склоны Guniea's Papau, 5000 - 6000 м. над уровнем моря. Саженцы развивались в хорошей почве и родили кофе с более сложным и богатым вкусом, чем самый наилучший в мире Ямайский кофе (Jamaica Blue Mountain). Это невероятный по своему качеству кофе из жаркого климата Папуа Новой Гвинеи имеет острый привкус манго и папайи, он также вполне сбалансированный, с превосходной кислотностью, острым ореховым запахом и чистым вкусом. Этот кофе является по истине, одним из наилучших сортов в мире. GUATAMALAN ANTIGUA (ГВАТЕМАЛА АНТИГУА) Кофе - основная сельскохозяйственная культура этой Центральноамериканской страны. В этой стране кофейные деревья выращивают в огромных по площади частных владениях, называемых гасиендами, на нескольких тысячах мелких ферм финкас, принадлежащих ладинос (потомкам европейцев). Кроме этого, кофе растят и индейцы, сажая его на маленьких клочках земли, разбросанных повсюду. Гватемальский кофе оценивается независимыми экспертами как один из самых лучших в мире. В отличие от однотипных сортов, произрастающих в Коста-Рике, в Гватемале наблюдается их большое разнообразие. Кофе имеет разные вкусовые качества в зависимости от района выращивания, хотя основные черты в этой стране присущи всем его видам: средняя или густая консистенция напитка, отличная сбалансированность с хорошим сочетанием кислотности и дополнительных оттенков копченого, пряного и шоколадного вкуса. Один из лучших сортов гватемальского кофе носит название древней столицы этого государства, основанного конкистадорами и разрушенного землетрясением 1773г. - "Антигуа". INDIAN MONSOONED MALABAR (МЛАБАРСКИЙ МУССОН) Пожалуй, самый интересный индийский сорт кофе  - это обрабатываемый сухим методом Малабарский Муссон (Monsooned coffee). Муссонный кофе имеет свою историю. В первой половине XX в. кофе из Индии в Европу перевозили парусниками. Перевозка, как правило, занимала несколько месяцев. За это время зерна подвергались длительному воздействию влажного морского воздуха, что приводило к изменению их цвета и вкуса. Зеленые зерна становились желтыми, а их вкус - сладковатым. Когда на смену парусникам пришли пароходы, и период перевозки резко сократился по времени, заказчики стали получать зеленый кофе. Но вкус желтых зерен нравился им больше. Поэтому было решено воспроизвести процесс влажной обработки зерен, который получил название «монсунинг» (monsooning). В мае-июне - сезон муссонов в Индии - зерна кофе помещают под навесы. Толщина слоя рассыпанных зерен при этом не должна превышать 20 см. Зерна лежат под навесом 5 дней. Затем кофе упаковывают в мешки, которые складывают горкой, чтобы муссон обдувал их со всех сторон. Эту горку мешков разбирают раз в неделю в течение 7 недель, до тех пор, пока зерна не поменяют цвет и вкус. Для этого кофе характерны низкая кислотность, широкий диапазон вкусов от аромата фруктовых деревьев с винными тонами, до орехово-шоколадных оттенков. Изумительный насыщенный неповторимый кофе.   BOLIVIAN ORGANIC (КОФЕ БОЛИВИИ) Кофейные деревья культивируются в этой стране уже давно. Катастрофические замо¬розки в Бразилии в 1975 году дали мощ¬ный толчок местному кофейному производству, в результате в следующем году сбор кофе в стране составил 16 тысяч тонн. Лучшие зерна получают на высоко¬горных плантациях (обычно 200—700 метров над уровнем моря). Вкус сбалансированный, насыщенный, присутствуют легкие вишневые тона. Идеально подходит для смеси из разных сортов.   COLOMBIAN SUPREMO (КОЛУМБИЙСКИЙ КЛАССА ПРЕМИУМ) Один из самых лучших в мире видов кофе. Его выращивают на склонах Анд на высоте 1500-1800 м. над уровнем моря. Он обладает тонким ярко выраженным ароматом и мягким, слегка винным вкусом. Настой крепкий средней кислотности. Хорошо сочетается с любыми сортами кофе. Колумбийский кофе в больших количествах продают на рынках всего мира. Можно даже сказать, что «колумбийский кофе» стал синонимом «хорошему кофе». Но это верно лишь отчасти. Вкус колумбийского кофе сбалансирован, кофе обладает хорошей крепостью, кислинкой и ароматом.   COLOMBIAN MESA ORGANIC (КОЛУМБИЙСКИЙ МЕСА ОРГАНИК) Интригующий, редкий кофе с богатым ореховым запахом и приятным цветочно-фруктовым ароматом.   COSTA RICAN TARRAZU SHB (КОСТАРИКАНСКИЙ КОФЕ - КОСТА-РИКА ТАРРАЗУ) Центральноамериканский сорт арабики. Кофе, выращенный на плантациях на высоте больше, чем 4500 м. над уровнем моря. Отличный кофе. Аромат ярко выраженный. Вкус горьковато-вяжущий, насыщенный. Латиноамериканцы говорят - «Хороший мексиканский кофе - это бодрящий кофе, а хороший коста-риканский кофе - это жгучий кофе».   GUATEMALA HUEHUETENANGO (ГВАТЕМАЛА ХУЕХУЕТЕНЕНГО) Центральноамериканский сорт. Имеет ярко выраженный острый вкус, большую кислотность и особенный, с привкусом дыма, аромат. Приятный, глубокий сложный запах вишни и шоколада. Настой крепкий. Хорошо сочетается с мягкими сортами кофе.   BRAZILIAN ARABICA (БРАЗИЛЬСКАЯ АРАБИКА) Это - потрясающий кофе из Бразилии. Кофе обладает нейтральной характеристикой - мягкий аромат, воплотивший в себя средний вкус без значительной кислотности.   MEXICAN ALTURA HG (МЕКСИКАНСКИЙ АЛЬТУРА) Этот кофе произрастает на плантациях горы Сьерры Мадре. Это кофе для тех, кто предпочитает черный кофе, с ярко выраженными винными оттенками. Кофе имеет привкус пряной травы, с фруктово-ягодными нотками. Кислотность низкая, вкус сбалансированный. SUMATRA GAYOLAND (КОФЕ С ОСТРОВА СУМАТРА GAYOLAND) Этот чрезвычайно редкий кофе производят на частных небольших семейных плантациях менее чем три акра по величине,  кофе растет рядом с полями, на которых выращивают пряности, специи и другие продовольственные посевы. От этого вкус и запах этого кофе приобретает неповторимые ни с чем не сравнимые оттенки. В кофе присутствуют пряные, травянистые сухие запахи. Этот кофе впитал в себя весь цветочный букет климата, в котором растет. Кофе умеренной кислотности, крепкий, насыщенный. С ярко выраженным послевкусием. Очень редкий и удивительный кофе. SUMATRA MANDHELING GR1 (СУМАТРА МАНДЕЛИН) Очень редкий сорт кофе, с частных высокогорных плантаций острова Суматра, Индонезия. Этот кофе подвергают «сухой» обработке - плоды кофе (вишни) сушат под солнцем, а затем вручную отделяют зерна. Этот сорт выращивается в районе Манделин, и по праву считается одним из вкуснейших индонезийских сортов. Имеет терпкий, насыщенный вкус с вино-орехово-хлебным привкусом, и сильным ароматом. Настой насыщенный. Букет комплексный, с преобладанием орехово-земляных тонов. ESPRESSO Смесь из 5 сортов кофе, специально для любителей эспрессо. Сочетает в себе богатый вкус и освежающий эффект. DARK ROAST BLEND Смесь из 6 сортов кофе, латиноамериканских, азиатских, и африканских. Сочетает в себе цветочные, фруктовые и шоколадно-ореховые тона. BREAKFAST BLEND (ДЛЯ ЗВТРАКА) Смесь из разных сортов кофе, латиноамериканских, азиатских, и африканских. Наиболее подходящие для начала вашего трудового дня.                                 KOPI LUWAK (КОПИ ЛЮВАК) – самый редкий и дорогой кофе в мире. Как известно, в мире существуют такие сорта кофе, о которых слышали очень многие почитатели этого напитка, но попробовать которые мало кому удается. Выпить НАСТОЯЩИЙ редкий сорт кофе, да к тому же хорошо сваренный - такая же удача, как простому смертному получить автограф звезды из первых рук. Как вы полагаете, из чего производят самый элитный и дорогой в мире кофе? Из определенного сорта кофе? А вот и нет - его производят из переваренных и вышедших из кишечника зверька рода виверр кофейных зерен. Речь идет о знаменитом сорте кофе «Kopi Luwak», которому нет равных по редкости и цене. Ежегодно в мире собирается не более 250 кг. этого редкого кофе. Считается, что свой оригинальный вкус он имеет благодаря весьма необычному способу ферментации кофейного зерна и его сбору. “Копи Лювак” продают по сверхвысокой для этого продукта цене - 75 долларов за четверть фунта, т.е. где-то за 60 граммов. Родом этот кофе из Индонезии - он произрастает на островах Ява, Суматра и Сулавеси. «Kopi» по-индонезийски означает «кофе», а «Luwak» - это небольшое животное, разновидность циветты, зверька семейства виверровых. Лювак живет на деревьях и является мелким хищником. А еще, он очень любит зёрна кофе, причем выбирает самые спелые и ароматные. Этого любителя кофе считали вредителем до тех пор, пока кто-то не догадался зарабатывать на нём огромные деньги. Дело в том, что лювак съедает намного больше зерен, чем способен переварить. Непереваренные зерна кофе, которые проходят через пищеварительную систему Лювака, претерпевают некоторую обработку его энзимами. В результате вкус зерен меняется. Так появляется на свет «Kopi Luwak». Этот сорт кофе обладает редким карамельным оттенком, пахнет шоколадом и определенно является напитком богов. Высокая цена на этот редкий сорт установлена также и в связи с тем, что объем его производства чрезвычайно мизерный. Наш кофе поставляется с частной небольшой плантации, где разводят этих зверьков специально для получения кофе «Kopi Luwak». На снимках вы можете видеть процесс обработки, сортировки и упаковки  кофе, а так же сертификат подлинности продукта и его качества.
          Adam Gemili relies on wildcard for London after injury hampers trials   
• Gemili finishes sixth in men’s 200m won by Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake
• Shannon Hylton pips Bianca Williams to surprise win in women’s 200m

Adam Gemili admits he is reduced to “praying for selection” for the world championships in London next month after struggling home in sixth place in the 200m at the UK trials. Gemili, who missed out on an Olympic bronze medal by three-thousands of a second, was clearly uncomfortable from the start in Birmingham because of a leg injury and ended up limping home in 20.97sec – exactly a second below his personal best.

Far ahead of him, Britain’s latest sprint talent Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake was living up to his billing as he sped home in 20.18sec – a time that beat John Regis’s championship record – to win his first race in the UK since his family left Britain for Jamaica when he was 13.

          Timbers Lose Another Lead, Draw in Kansas City   
by Abe Asher

Despite all the injuries — both physical and mental — suffered in the last week, when the Portland Timbers retook the field on Saturday night in Kansas City, they looked like their best selves.

Playing in a venue where the home team hadn't lost in more than a year, the Timbers were in control. Their attacking play was sharp. Their midfield was strong, and their makeshift back six was rarely made uncomfortable.

It was, for the first time in a long time, a positive, balanced 90 minutes. But on a night when they took the lead, when a win would have carried an especially long way, the Timbers couldn't quite finish the job.

Instead, they dropped two more points from a winning position and — stop me if you've heard this before — failed to win a game that shouldn't have been all that close. The Timbers stopped the bleeding on Saturday. But they could have done plenty more.

While Portland entered this game hobbled, three of Kansas City's best players were suiting up for another team. Matt Besler, Graham Zusi, and Dom Dwyer were all in the U.S.'s lineup in Hartford against Ghana, and the effect of their absences was apparent from the get-go.

Peter Vermes called his team's start "sluggish," and that was a conservative descriptor. Sporting's first half pace was mind-bendingly slow. The home team — perhaps affected by its midweek excursion in the U.S. Open Cup in Houston — managed just two shots and lost Gerso, one of its few game-changers, to injury.

Portland, meanwhile — having cleared its schedule of any Cup committments in unflinching fashion several weeks ago — quickly established the kind rhythm on both sides of the ball that Sporting so impressively denied them when the two teams met at Providence Park back in April.

And while that rhythm was nice, it took a moment of genius from who else but Diego Valeri to unlock the league's premier defense.

Midway through the first half, Valeri picked up a slipped pass from his compatriot Sebastian Blanco and came flowing forward with teammates in support. But with Kevin Ellis retreating, Valeri decided to wind up, and, from twenty-five yards, belt a shot that flew past Tim Melia and cracked in off the underside of the crossbar.

It was, even by the Maestro's lofty standards, an awfully sweet strike. The ball absolutely exploded off of his right foot and traveled at an inch-perfect height. You can't hit them that well even in FIFA.

For a player who has mostly toiled since his return from injury in mid-May, it was a resounding strike — and it gave a team that has mostly toiled since mid-May an excellent opportunity. Taking the lead against Sporting is half the battle. It's not a team particularly well suited to play from from behind.

An hour of solid soccer against a team rolling with Latif Blessing, Soony Saad, and Daniel Salloi on its front line — a combined two goals this year — and the Timbers would have their biggest win of the season.

Sporting dug in to the extent that they could in the second half, and almost had an early equalizer when Ike Opara had a free run onto a Benny Feilhaber free kick.

But Opara pushed his header wide, and Kansas City would go the rest of the game without creating a clear-cut chance — bar one moment, on the hour mark, when Roger Espinosa lofted a pass towards Salloi, who was streaking past Alvas Powell and into the Timbers' penalty area.

Powell was caught unaware, and Salloi took his chance with a remarkable measure of composure — bringing the ball down, and lifting it over Jake Gleeson to bring Sporting level.

It was a good finish by the kid, but also the latest in a catalogue of bad moments this season from Powell. Porter was extremely generous in gifting the Jamaican his starting spot back before the Seattle game last weekend, but it's neither a spot he's earned over Zarek Valentin nor a spot he should have.

Still, even with Sporting newly invigorated, the Timbers had the chances to win.

The first came when Adi, played through by Valeri, went flying under an imaginary Melia challenge and won a penalty. But justice was done moments later, when Valeri — who'd never had a spotkick saved in a regular season game — saw his conversion attempt parried away by the Kansas City 'keeper.

And there was no karmic excuse a minute later, when Lawrence Olum airmailed a chance to beat his former team after Ben Zemanski's cross found him all alone five yards from Melia's goal.

At the end of the day, whether the Adi penalty gets whistled or not, the Timbers let Kansas City off the hook. They got the performances they needed to win. Darlington Nagbe's shift in central midfield was a primary example.

When Nagbe was deployed in central midfield two weeks ago in Colorado, he was — to put it lightly — a defensive liability. Not so this week. Nagbe stepped up with a Chara-esque eight defensive recoveries, won several tackles, several fouls, completed all 53 of his passes, and barely broke a sweat in the process.

It was a big-time performance — the kind of performance the Timbers knew they had to have to compete in this game — and they still couldn't manage to turn it into three points.

The good news is that this year's Western Conference will forgive dropped points in July and then some. Porter — so seething last week — appeared heartened by his team's effort. He called it "something we can build on."

Considering that the Timbers were winning a road game very similar to this one on the second weekend of the season in Los Angeles, there is scant joy to be found in that mild praise.

The process of building this team back up from the position it found itself in last Monday morning is promising to be a considerable one — and while there's time to see that process through, it's not exactly how anyone who watched the start of the season unfold figured they'd be spending their summer.

          My chances at any Ivy?   
Hi everyone. I really want to get into a Yale as it is my number one school. I'm a female of mixed race (Jamaican/American) and I also happen to be of Jewish religious affiliation. My unweighted GPA is a 94.0625 and my weighted GPA is a 97.8542. My ACT composite score is a 32. My class rank is 20 out 407, which I know isn't the best but is still in the top 5%. I am currently taking 5 AP courses and 1 college course. I'm involved with my schools National Honor Society (I am the President), National Foreign Language Honor Society (I am the treasurer), Student Government, Mock Trial, and I am a competitive dancer (I dance 5 days a week for 2 hours+ each day.) I also am the treasurer of my schools chapter of Glamour Gals which is a volunteer organization in which we go to nursing homes and talk to and paint the nails of the residents. I will be volunteering at an assisted living home this summer and working as a camp counselor at a week long STEM camp in my area this summer as well. Do I stand a fair chance?

          Bob Marley Alikataa kuandika urithi kwa kuamini kuwa marastafari huwa hawafi   
 
Alikataa kuandika urithi kwa kuamini kuwa marastafari huwa hawafi.
Robert Nesta Marley,ambaye baadaye alikuja kujulikana kama Bob Marley,alizaliwa Februari 6,1945 katika kijiji cha Nine Mile kwenye Parishi ys mtakatifu Ann huko Jamaica.
Baba yake Norval Sinclair Marley alikuwa mzungu na mama yake Cedelia Booker alikuwa Mjamaica mweusi.Historia ya maisha yake haitofautiani sana na wanamuziki wenzake wa reggae Peter Tosh aliyelelewa na shangazi yake na Bunny Wailer aliyelelewa na baba yake zaidi,ni historia ya huzuni iliyo muacha Bob Marley chini ya mzazi mmoja(mama yake) pale alipofiwa na baba yake akiwa na umri wa miaka kumi tu.
Norval Sinclair (baba yake Bob Marley) alikuwa nahodha wa meli na muangalizi wa mashamba,alikufa mwak 1955 akiwa safarini,wakati huo alikuwa na umri wa miaka 60.
Kifo hicho kilimfanya mama yake Bob Markey ahamishe makazi kwenye mji wa Kingston,huko Bob alikutana na Bunny Wailer wakawa marafiki na kujifunza muziki pamoja.Akiwa na umri wa miaka 14,
Bob Marley aliacha shule na kujiunga na chuo cha ufundi wa kuchomelea vyuma,muda wakewa kupumzika alikuwa na Bunny Wailer kwenye muziki,kipindi hiko mwalimu wao alikuwa Joe Higgs,

Muimbaji wa mtaani mwenye imani ya kirastafari.Chini ya Joe Higgs walikutana na Peter Tosh na kuungana naye.

Mwaka 1962 Bob Marley alirekodi nyimbo zake mbili za kwanza ambazo ni;"Usihukumu"(judge not) na "kikombe kimoja cha chai"(one cup of tea) chini ya muandaaji Leslie Kong,

lakini nyimbo hizo hazikukubalika sana.Mwaka 1963 akashirikiana na Bunny Wailer,Peter Macintosh(Peter Tosh),Junior Braithwaite,Beverly Kelso na cherry Smith n kuunda kundi la "The Teenagers" kundi hilo lilijibadili majina na kuwa "The wailing rude boys","The wailling wailers" na mwishowe "The wailers".

Mwaka 1964 na 1965 watoa vibao vikali kama "Usiwe na wasiwasi"(simmer down) na "Nafsi isiyokubali"(soul rebel)nyimbo hizi zilikonga nyoyo za Wajamaika wengi

Hata hivyo kufikia mwaka 1965 lilibakiwa na wakali watatu tu,yaani Bob Marley,Bunny Wailer n Peter Tosh,baada ya wengine kujiengua.

Mwaka 1966 Bob Marley alimuoa kimwana Rita Anderson na kwenda kuishi kwa muda na mama yake huko Wilmington,Delaware nchini Marekani..

Na kuibuka na imani kali ya kirastafari na kuja na mtindo wa kufuga nywele uitwao "dreadlocks".

Baada ya hapo Bob Marley na kundi lake la The wailers walitoa vibao kemkem vilivyoitikisa Dunia.

Kati ya vibao hivyo ni;Africa unit,Zimbabwe,Could oyu loved?,Iron lion zion,Is this love,Buffalo soldier na vingine vingi.

Huyo ni Bob Marley,mfalme wa reggae aliyepinga ubaguzi kwani hata yeye mwenyewe alisema "Wananiita chotara,lakini mimi siegamii upande wowote bali nipo upande wa Mungu aliye niumba kutoka kwa weusi na weupe".

Hiyo ni biograph ya mwanaharakati huyo wakupinga ubaguzi."REST IN PEACE RASTAFARAE"

          Relive your eighties childhood with this fantastic new 80s book   
The much anticipated book "A 1980s Childhood" has finally arrived on the bookshelves bursting with 80s goodness. The humourous book takes a look at what it was like growing up as a child in the 80s, from the fashions and the music, to the TV shows and the toys. No 80s stone is left unturned!

Here's the blurb from the back of the book to whet your appetite:

Do you remember trying to solve the Rubik’s cube whilst dressed in your He-Man picture pyjamas? Did you try to make ‘cool’ sound effects with your mouth like Jones from Police Academy? Or maybe you sang along to ‘Pass the Dutchie’ by Musical Youth in a fake Jamaican accent? If that sounds like you, there’s no mistaking you were a child of the eighties.

Rev up your DeLorean, switch on the Flux Capacitor and take a cruise back through the decade that made you the person you are today. This amusing and entertaining slice of eighties life will jog the memories of all who grew up in the same decade where greed was good, mullets were cool and white dog poo littered the streets.

The book includes the following chapters illustrated with some brilliant 80s photography:

Chapter 1 - Introduction
Chapter 2 - Fashion
Chapter 3 – Music
Chapter 4 - TV and Movies
Chapter 5 - Toys and games
Chapter 6 – Technology
Chapter 7 – Famous People
Chapter 8 - World events
Chapter 9 – Street Life
Chapter 10 - Skool daze


A 1980s Childhood is available now from Amazon and from Waterstones, WHSmith and all good bookshops. Click here to buy from Amazon!

I can't tell you how I excited I am to announce that my new book "A 1980s Childhood" is in the final stages of production and is scheduled for publication in just a few weeks time! The book takes a humorous look at  every aspect of 1980s life the way I saw it as a child. I'm sure it'll ring plenty of bells with anyone else who was around back then. As soon as I know the publication date, I'll be sure to let you all know so you can rush out and buy a copy (or two)!

          This Man Makes Beautiful Suits, But He Can't Afford To Buy One   
Peter Frew is one of a tiny number of people left in the United States who can — entirely on his own, using almost no machinery — make a classic bespoke suit. He can measure you, draw a pattern, cut the fabric and then hand-stitch a suit designed to fit your body perfectly. Frew spent more than a decade as an apprentice for a remarkable tailor in his native Jamaica. He now sells his suits for about $4,000. Since New York is filled with very rich people who see their suits as an essential uniform, Frew has all the orders he can handle. When I first heard about Frew and his remarkable skill, I thought: That guy must make a fortune. I was wrong. It turns out, all the orders he can handle is not that many orders. It takes him 75 hours to make just one suit. He makes about two suits a month. And after expenses — fine English wool costs a lot — Frew takes home less than $50,000 a year. That's not even enough for Frew to buy one of his own suits. In fact, Frew doesn't own a suit at all — he
          Scots in Jamaica 1655-1855 - the book   
Hi Folks,
I bought the book, Scots in the West Indies, a while ago - just basically a list of names that proved unfruitful for me, though I admire the work that went into it.
It has a chapter on Jamaica, and some names.

I learned recently there is a book by the same author, called Scots in Jamaica 1655-1855 or thereabouts.

I was wondering if anyone had it, and can tell me how different it is from the Jamaican chapter of the West Indies book. I think they're about the same price - $45.
If if anyone can do a lookup for me from the Jamaican book - Surname Stewart, and surname Turnbull, I'd really appreciate it!

Many thanks in advance,
Ian
          Re: STEWARTS from Scotland to Ireland to Jamaica   
On OPR on Scotlands People, there "may be" a record for
William Stewart. It is dated 18 Feb 1759, but you can't tell if this is the baptism date or birth date until you open it for five credits.

Its bare details reads: 18 Feb 1759. William Stewart.
Parents John Stewart & Mary Stewart. Lismore Appin and Duror, Argyll (GRO 525/00 0010 0009)

And it might not be him, because having had a look at your public tree, I see that you have William's father's name as something else.(Forget what it is for the moment, but it isn't John)

Also, I enclose copy of a very brief note about a marriage in Ireland for William Stewart and Charity Freeman ML25 (See attachment)

I realize that you might already have seen the above information.

          STEWARTS from Scotland to Ireland to Jamaica   
Rev. William STEWART 1758-1834, m. Charitie FREEMAN 1769-1845. Both buried in Mount Jerome Cemetery, Dublin. One known son: Rev. Samuel Henry STEWART, b. 1800 c m. Mary MURPHY 1810-1837. Samuel was Rector of Clarendon, Jamaica.

I have seen documentation of William and Mary having 5 children:
2. Fredrika STEWART
2. Jane STEWART, F
2. Sarah STEWART
2. William Henry STEWART
2. Ernest Augustus Montgomery STEWART

This William Sr.apparently emigrated from Scotland to Ireland. I believe that Samuel and Mary emigrated to Jamaica as missionaries. I am still trying to confirm the place of birth for all family members.

Any help is appreciated.

          Dilapidated Jamaica home is raccoon heaven   
"A seven year-old girl had to run for her life from a raccoon; but according to policy the raccoon has the right to stay. A woman reached out to CleanupJamaicaQueens after her child was almost attacked by a fierce looking raccoon on Sunday June 25th.

The woman is living next door to the raccoon dwelling. Her home is about six feet away separated by a short fence. The decade old abandoned property is located at 167-05 144 Avenue Jamaica Queens. And yes, she has reached out to the local leaders many times to clean up the site.

The woman, Ms. B said that she has seen: rats and lizards, but the raccoons appear to be the leader of the pack. She said, "I was sitting on my stoop, watching my daughter play in my yard; when a raccoon started walking towards her direction; she started screaming, crying and running." That is when I had to reach out to CleanupJamaicaQueens.

Well, I (Hazel) got to the scene around fourish; the Sunday afternoon was still bright. The raccoon was long gone home, but next door. I called 311 and reported the issue. The operator said, some one will come out to investigate, but the raccoon can stay if it does do not have rabies. He went on, "do you know if that raccoon has rabies?" I was so damn angry that I responded, "no I did not have time to investigate."

Photos were taken on 6/25/17. Location, 167-05 144th. Avenue Jamaica Queens.
And this is why the black communities remain a fourth world area in America. There is always a technicality NOT to resolve problems in black communities.

Borough President/Katz, please get off your ever promising ass. You are responsible for Jamaica; It is part of Queens.

Please have your henchwoman/Boranian call the appropriate agency. The raccoon house is surrounded by trees and bushes, where creatures run freely. The entire house is inhabitable and the neighbours are living in fear."

          Holder leads West Indies to stunning win against India   
West Indies captain Jason Holder took five wickets as they beat India by 11 runs in a low-scoring one-day international on Sunday.

Images: West Indies stun India after Dhoni's slowest ODI fifty | Full Scorecard | Complete Coverage

After West Indies eked out 189 for nine wickets off their 50 overs, India could muster only 178 all out off 49.4 overs in reply at North Sound on the island of Antigua.

India lead the five-match series 2-1 going into the final game in Kingston, Jamaica on Thursday, where the home team will have a chance to draw the series.

India, who made three changes from the team that won the third game on Friday, were disappointing with the bat.

Even Mahendra Singh Dhoni was not immune from criticism, scoring a painstaking 54 off 114 balls, with just one boundary, as the visitors fell behind the required run rate chasing a modest total.

Opener Ajinkya Rahane top-scored for India with 60 off 91 balls. Only he and Dhoni scored more than 20.

Holder picked up 5-27 with his right-arm fast-medium bowling, including the prized scalp of India captain Virat Kohli for the second match in a row.

“Extremely pleased with the guys,” Man of the Match Holder said in an on-field interview.

“It took a big effort. Credit must go to all the bowlers (and) I thought the fielding was very supportive. We knew we could beat India. Just needed some application.”

Holder admitted batting was still “a concern” and said he thought 250 would have been a “par score.”

Kohli, meanwhile, was also downbeat about his team’s performance with the bat.

"We bowled really well to restrict them to 189,” he said.

"Our shot selection wasn't up to the mark. It felt a bit two-paced. Apart from that I don't think there was anything else in the pitch. With the bat we faltered and that can happen in this game. We just have to put this behind us and come back fresh for the next game."

          Instead of wearing safety pins in solidarity, try Safety Pin Box—a subscription kit for white allies   

Two days after the presidential election in 2016, I flew down to Miami where I was scheduled to work with a local labor union on diversity, equity and inclusion issues. It felt like an impossible task. The plans that I’d developed with my co-facilitators a month before had to be tossed out the window so that we could make space for people to simply grieve. The employees of the union had been working for over a year to elect Hillary Clinton and they took the loss very hard. But more importantly, they knew that a Donald Trump win posed a very real and dangerous threat to their lives and those of their loved ones. As a group of mostly women, people of color and immigrants, they were now targets and were shocked into the reality that millions of people in this country chose a xenophobic, racist misogynist as its leader—directly after electing the first black president. It was devastating. They felt under attack for who they were. People grappled with the very idea of having to talk to Trump voters and how to make sense of what was to come next. 

When I finished that very difficult work (which involved many tears, including my own), I ended the trip by visiting with my dear friend Crystina. It was Crystina who first told me about this concept of safety pins being worn as a symbol of solidarity with vulnerable people. Crystina and I have been friends for several years and knowing her well and having witnessed her activism on issues related to social justice, I had no doubt that she would actually intervene in a situation where a minority, immigrant, woman or LGBTQ person was being harmed in some way. But I had serious doubts. I didn’t trust that safety pins were anything other than performance—a symbol designed to make the wearer feel better about their allyship but not a guarantee that they had done any actual work to learn about systems of oppression and injustice nor would they do anything about injustice when confronted with it happening in front of them. Crystina and I debated the benefits of wearing safety pins and the good they would do. I remember specifically wondering whether or not black people were even wearing them and if it was necessary to, considering that we were targets in Trump’s America too. Upon leaving her house, she gave me a hug and a big safety pin to wear on my sweater. Still unconvinced, I took it off in the airport, for fear that it would set off the metal detector. I never did put it back on. But I did continue to engage in debates about their usefulness.

Apparently, around that same time, Marissa Jenae Johnson and Leslie Mac were also debating the utility of wearing safety pins as a practice of allyship. The two women, who have a long history of being organizers in the movement for black lives, met online and were in Jamaica on vacation together right after the election when they heard about this idea of people wearing safety pins to show support. This led them to create Safety Pin Box, a monthly subscription for white allies interested in tangible activities they can do to be allies in the fight for black liberation. I was with Marissa and Leslie at BlogHer 17 in Orlando, Florida earlier in June where they received a Voice of the Year award for Impact (full disclosure: I was an honoree as well in the written work (long) category). I had the pleasure of meeting Leslie then and interviewing Marissa a few days later. They are both unapologetic about their commitment to speaking truth to power and about why their work is important for ending anti-black racism.

          West Indies defeats India by 11 runs in third ODI   

[West Indies], July 3 (ANI): West Indies defeated India by 11 runs in the third match played at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Antigua here on Sunday.

Having managed to score only 189 in the allocated 50 overs, the Indies put a brilliant display of bowling and successfully restricted India to 178/10 in 49.4 overs.

From the Indian side, Ajinkya Rahane (60 off 91 balls) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (54 off 114 balls), were the only players who got to their half-centuries.

Interestingly, Dhoni scored India's slowest half-century in 16 years. His knock included only one boundary.

Skipper Jason Holder was among the pick of the bowlers for the West Indies as he scalped five wickets, including the price possession of Indian Skipper Virat Kohli, in his 9.4 overs.

Holder was later adjudged 'Man of the Match' award for his splendid bowling performance.

India will now take on West Indies in the fourth ODI match on July 6 that will be played in Sabina Park, Jamaica. (ANI)

          ENFOQUE   

Adolfo López Mateos, presidente de la República (1958-1964), causó revuelo, asombro y desconcierto, no sólo en México sino en todo el mundo, y enojo del gobierno de Estados Unidos...

Cuando en 1963 declaró ante los medios que lo cuestionaban sobre el rumbo de su administración: "Mi gobierno es de izquierda, pero dentro de la Constitución"; se habló entonces de la "izquierda atinada". Y José López Portillo (1976-1982), sobre el mismo tema, en 1978, salió del atolladero al decir: "Soy enemigo de las geometrías políticas; creo en el justo medio, y en él se coloca el gobierno que presido".

Inicia este Enfoque con citas de dos expresidente de la República, para intentar un comentario analítico sobre la ideología del partido político que los postuló y llevó al poder, como a otros exmandatarios del País. Hubo efervescencia política en varios estados de la República. Se llevaron a cabo los procesos para elegir gobernador, ayuntamientos y diputados locales, que terminaron con la jornada electoral del pasado 4 de junio; en varios de esos Estados, aún continúa la inquietud postelectoral. Los analistas y conocedores del tema, consideran que dichos procesos electorales son un ensayo que tendrá influencia en gran medida en la próxima elección presidencial de 2018.

Por estas razones y otras más, saltan a la palestra, poniéndose nuevamente en el tapete de la discusión y el debate, cuestiones relativas a la postura ideológica de los partidos: derecha, izquierda y centro. Hagamos el siguiente planteamiento: ¿Es posible un gobierno colocado en el centro del espectro político? Por principio el centro es otra manera de llamar a la moderación, que se ubica de modo equidistante entre los extremos de la izquierda y la derecha. Y en tanto que es moderado, algunos consideran que es generador de estabilidad política.

Esta concepción política tiene muchos detractores, los cuales opinan que "el centro no existe como posición ideológica", porque según ellos en una interpretación maniquea "la izquierda se identifica con el cambio, mientras que la derecha pretende que las cosas conserven el estado que tienen en un momento dado"; por lo tanto, dicen, el punto medio es una incongruencia histórica y política, porque "no es posible admitir el equilibrio o neutralidad entre las aspiraciones innovadoras y los afanes conservadores". El centro, afirman sus críticos, representa la indefinición, la ambigüedad ideológica, el abandono de principios y valores, la comodidad política que no compromete. Para ellos, sólo hay de dos aguas: de horchata y de jamaica; tomas de una o tomas de otra, no hay más.

Consecuentes con el análisis anterior, es posible decir: si se acepta que en México el Partido Acción Nacional (PAN) representa los intereses de la derecha, y que la llamada izquierda se concentra en el Partido de la Revolución Democrática (PRD), principalmente; en el Partido del Trabajo (PT) y en el Movimiento de Regeneración Nacional (MORENA), podría concluirse que si tales espacios están ya habitados, correspondería ocupar el centro al Partido Revolucionario Institucional (PRI).

En el desarrollo de las ideologías políticas, han sido muchos los que rechazan el conflicto violento de dos clases, y proponen un punto intermedio conocido como la socialdemocracia o tercera vía. Analistas de reconocido prestigio, afirman que los partidos socialdemócratas debían convertirse en policlasistas, donde quepan lo mismo asalariados que intelectuales.

Actualmente ha cobrado vigor la renovación de la socialdemocracia, de tal manera que partidos históricamente identificados como socialistas, al darse su renovación se autodenominaron socialdemócratas que, al llegar al poder, se hicieron a la derecha o a la izquierda, sin que haya habido una declaración oficial en tal sentido, por no convenirles políticamente.

Por esta razón, para algunos analistas el centro realmente no existe, pues solamente es un disfraz que utilizan la izquierda o la derecha, si así conviene a sus intereses. ¿En tal hipótesis se halla el Partido Revolucionario Institucional? Para orientar el criterio recordemos las declaraciones de López Mateos y de López Portillo, enunciadas al inicio de este artículo. Mario Velasco Torres, abogado y analista político mexicano, pretende dar respuesta a la pregunta planteada anteriormente en su Ensayo "La búsqueda del Centro; ¿Identidad y Camino?", cuando dice:

"En México hay en el PRI un centro auténtico, producto de un modelo propio de desarrollo perfectible a la vista de las deudas con la justicia social y con el saldo positivo de la democracia. Sería inapropiado yuxtaponer al partido que nació de la Revolución con la socialdemocracia, aunque algunas similitudes los vinculan: su multiclasismo, que permite que coincidan obreros, campesinos, indígenas, clases populares urbanas, intelectuales, académicos y empresarios".

"Sin proponérselo, la ideología de la Revolución de 1910 impregnada del sentido común de quienes la hicieron gobierno, tomó los elementos del liberalismo del siglo XIX combinándolo con las propuestas que originaron el movimiento armado. . . "De esta manera el eclecticismo se hizo patente a la hora de construir el proyecto de nación donde participaron todos los actores con aporte de su propia cosmovisión... Dentro de este instituto político militan intelectuales con formación de izquierda, funcionarios públicos con visión empresarial, líderes obreros y dirigentes campesinos con una aspiración socialista... el revolucionario institucional supo captar ideas que se encontraban en boga como el ecologismo o el desarrollo sustentable para penetrar en el ánimo de la sociedad". Estos argumentos del politólogo podrán ser válidos o no, pero provocan la reflexión.

Para cerrar este ensayo analítico, citamos lo que hace años un candidato presidencial del PRI (que podría ser cualquiera de los muchos que ha tenido), dentro de su campaña política ante una concurrencia heterogénea, decía: "Ni la izquierda violenta y conflictiva; ni la derecha autoritaria y represiva pueden beneficiar a México. Nosotros ofrecemos un gobierno que colocado en el justo medio pueda resolver en un clima de armonía, de respeto y de seguridad las grandes carencias de la población mexicana. Un gobierno que actúe con firmeza, que tenga experiencia suficiente para atacar con eficacia las causas de los males sociales. México no quiere la intolerancia que practican nuestros adversarios; quiere un gobierno que proporcione seguridad, empleo, vivienda, educación y salud; y eso sólo lo ofrecemos y garantizamos nosotros". Se lo dejo de tarea, para su reflexión.

          Regional Roundup: Top New Features This Week Around Our BroadwayWorld 6/29 - THE LITTLE MERMAID, RAGTIME, NEWSIES, and More!   

BroadwayWorld presents a comprehensive weekly roundup of regional stories around our Broadway World, which include videos, editor spotlights, regional reviews and more. This week, we feature THE LITTLE MERMAID, RAGTIME, NEWSIES, and more!

Check out our top features from around the BroadwayWorld below!


Central Pennsylvania: Contributor Marakay Rogers reviews NEWSIES at the Fulton Theater. She writes "Matt Farcher, who plays Jack Kelly, leader of the newsboy throng, is certainly energetic as well as a fine vocalist; local audiences will possibly not recognize him, though they've seen him before - as the Beast at Fulton's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. His performance here may be a bit more informed, however, by his prior performance as Che Guevara in EVITA in Maine, as well as having played revolutionary Enjolras in LES MIS in the past. (That "LES MIS turns positive" vibe is strong with this show.) Kate Fahrner makes for a tough, but charming, potential love interest as Katherine Plumber, intrepid early female reporter who is trying hard to not be her father's daughter - a major plot point of the show. If there's a real criticism to be had of the book, it's Katherine's part; the amazement over a female journalist shouldn't have been so great, given that Nellie Bly was a major expose writer for Pulitzer (the big bad of the show) in 1887 and that her famous Around The World stunt was done for Pulitzer in 1888. The historic newsboy strike was in 1899, when Bly had only recently (and temporarily - she did war correspondent work in World War One) retired. Writer Fierstein presumably based Katherine on Bly, but the show is set just late enough that anyone relatively familiar with history will find the lack of prior existence of Bly irritating."


New Zealand: Contributor Monica Moore reviews BONNIE AND CLYDE. She writes "Bonnie, played by Nicolette Nes is superb. She has the look, the voice and the style. And the top quality performances just keep coming at you. Blanche (Katrina McConnell) is excellent along with Buck (Brian Wolfman) Preacher (Simon Chapman) and well, actually they're all pretty darn good! Special mention to the young Bonnie (Samara Bayliss and Medody Lui-Webster) and Clyde (Tim Cloves) who deliver Great Performances. The set is engaging and designed by the well-known John Fausett who cleverly incorporates and ensures the story is kept interesting."


Minneapolis: Contributor Karen Bovard reviews SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE at the Guthrie Theatre. She writes "Crucial to the success of any production of this show are the two leads. Randy Harrison is suitably difficult and awkward in Act 1 as Seurat, and far slicker as his great grandson George in Act 2, where he seems more in command. Act 1 belongs to Erin Mackey as Dot, who is sexy and sympathetic and sly and sings with great feeling. She's also fully credible as the elderly wheelchair bound Marie in Act 2; it's a startling, funny, and moving transformation. All the members of the strong ensemble take on new roles in Act 2, and part of what makes this second act work so well are the bold choices they've made in sketching in their characters. The music swells with real grandeur, thanks to their ensemble power, an excellent mic system, and a full 13 piece orchestra behind them, helmed by conductor and pianist Mark Hartman."


Oklahoma: Contributor Ronn Burton reviews MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET at the Lyric Theatre. He writes "Director Dave Steakley wisely steps back and lets his boys go to town when necessary, yet his subtle guidance of the tone and flow of the show does not go unnoticed. The costumes by the reliably-proficient resident designer Jeffrey Meek are period-perfect yet fashion-forward. Helena Kuukka's lighting and Adam Koch's sets work hand-in-hand seamlessly - the colors and patterns playing off each other consummately. Important to note: the musical performances wouldn't be as impeccable as they are without Anthony Risi's sound design, which subtly yet perfectly enhances the recording studio vs. live performance effects throughout the evening."


Long Island: Contributor Melissa Giordano reviews RAGTIME at East Islip's BayWay Theatre. She writes "Among the talented cast, Chazmond Peacock makes a superb Coalhouse; intense, great voice... he's a natural for the role. Coalhouse is the beau of Sarah (and father of her child) portrayed exquisitely by Amanda-Camille Isaac. Ms. Isaac's striking portrayal of poor Sarah is a roller coaster of emotions including a gorgeous rendition of the hopeful song "Wheels Of A Dream" with Mr. Peacock. Additionally, kudos to Mike Press who is an outstanding Booker T. Washington, Coalhouse's mentor. On Ms. Waller's clever creative team, Bob Butterley's bi-level set ideally fills the open stage. Rolling pieces, tucked away on the sides, are used throughout. Also, the fun here is that you get to use your imagination a great deal. The music, on tracks, is coordinated by Eizabeth DeGennaro who is also part of the cast. This is enhanced beautifully by Jessy Gill's choreography and Joseph Kassner's stunning costumes."


Kansas City: Contributor Alan Portner reviews JERSEY BOYS at Starlite Theatre. He writes "Jersey Boys offers up super production values with this touring show. Portrayals of Massi and DiVito are a little one dimensional, but the singing, acting, production, and dancing make up for any lack. The supporting cast is excellent. Jersey Boys is a little strange to get used to. It is an excuse for a concert of great music. The music does not advance the story much except in parallel in the documentary. Most of the first act is required for the audience to get used to the style, but the final forty minutes grabs the audience and transports them back to the golden age just prior to the Beatles in the Doo Wop period. The audience ends up loving the performance."


St. Louis: Contributor Chris Gibson reviews SEUSSICAL at Stages St. Louis. He writes "Ryan Cooper is a perfectly disarming and amusing Cat in the Hat, with nimble movements and well-timed comic delivery of lines that bring forth smiles and laughs from young and old alike . You can just see that he's having fun. Cooper and Company draw the audience into the tale immediately with the rousing opening number "Oh! The Things You Can Think," and Cooper takes on several different comedic roles throughout the proceedings. As JoJo, Colton James Kastrup is a very believable little boy, and definitely possesses just the right voice and enthusiastic innocence that fit the part. Anthony Arpino absolutely shines as Horton, with a warm and deeply concerned performance that makes you genuinely care about his plight. April Strelinger is delightfully vainglorious as Mayzi and oozes attitude to spare. Leah Berry is simply terrific as Gertrude McFuzz, a single-feathered bird who's in love with Horton, but having trouble getting him to realize it. Her take on "Notice Me, Horton" is a sad and sweet delight."


Rhode Island: Contributor Andira Tieman reviews THE DIANA TAPES. She writes "The Diana Tapes is a tightly-written one act with just four actors. Playwright James Clements takes on the role of biographer Andrew Morton with Sam Hood Adrain as Michael O'Mara, his publisher. The two of them receive and transcribe recordings made by Princess Diana's friend James Colthurst, played by Jorge Morales Pico. The attention to detail with the sets and costumes is impressive for a production barebones as this. Battered chairs are swapped for fancy ones when the scene changes from the office where Morton and O'Mara frequently meet to Diana's residence where she talks with Colthurst. Diana's iconic wedding ring, now Kate Middleton's, is replicated. While the men's costumes are necessarily basic, Diana gets several glamorous outfit changes that suit the scenes perfectly."


St. Louis: Contributor Chris Gibson reviews THE LITTLE MERMAID at The Muny! He writes "Emma Degerstedt is delightful as Ariel, effectively conjuring up the image of a young mermaid who wants more out of life, and is positively driven to do so. Her voice is splendid as well, as would befit a character who uses it as a bargaining chip so she can gain her true love. Jason Gotay does fine work as the object of her affections, Prince Eric, and you genuinely root for them to connect. Emily Skinner is perfectly menacing as Ursula, creepily costumed and brimming with malevolent intentions, Skinner makes a memorable impression. Jerry Dixon is commanding and surly as King Triton, bringing plenty of bluster to the role. James T. Lane is enthusiastic as Sebastian, the red Jamaican crab who is also a composer. The undeniably catchy "Under the Sea" gets a great workout under his guidance. Jeffrey Schecter is funny and friendly as Scuttle the seagull, and Spencer Jones is awfully cute as Flounder. Kevin Zak and Will Porter are quite good as Ursula's moray eel minions; Flotsam and Jetsam, respectively. Frank Vlastnik is also sharp as Chef Louis/Pilot, specializing in seafood dishes as the Chef, which naturally rubs Sebastian the wrong way. Richard B. Watson rounds out the cast as Eric's manservant/confidante, Grimsby. Of course, the large ensemble also adds to the merriment, and gives the show an even wider scope."


Chicago: Contributor Rachel Weinberg reviews MOBY DICK at Lookingglass Theatre Company. She writes "MOBY DICK also features three extraordinary female actors in its ensemble: Kelly Abell, Cordelia Dewdney, and Mattie Hawkinson. While each essays various roles, they also come together as the three Fates-an inventive and eerily effective device. Decked out in Sully Ratke's magnificent and haunting costumes, they provide the warning of what's to come upon the play's conclusion. At various points in the production, Abell, Dewdney, and Hawkinson also embody various elements of nature: the ocean, a whale carcass, and even Moby Dick himself. Outside of the skeletal structure of the set, there is no literal whale onstage-but that is perhaps one of the most striking representations of Moby Dick in the production."

          Jamaican Pic (15 replies)   
I was searching for some info to answer a question from someone else who owns a Jamaican bodied car and when I googled for the answer, I found a picture of my car I had never seen before, taken by a newspaper photographer at our big local car show two years ago. Almost looks like a 'real' (i.e. manufacturer's) model.

Pleasant to find a nice shot of one's car, particularly as we are almost always too busy at events to take time to find a photogenic background etc.

          Windies beat India to keep series alive   

India leads 2-1 with the fifth and final game on Thursday at Kingston, Jamaica.

Neither team impressed with the bat at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium at North Sound.

West Indies scored only 189-9 after winning the toss and choosing to bat. It turned out to be enough as India lost its last five wickets for only 19 runs — collapsing from 159-5 in the 45th over to 178 all out with two balls to spare.

India opener Ajinkya Rahane hit 60 off 91 balls, including seven fours, and Mahendra Singh Dhoni labored to 54 from 114 balls with one boundary. Dhoni’s dismissal left India needing 14 to win in the final over with two wickets left.

Holder, who took his five-for in 9.4 overs, claimed the final wicket of Mohammed Shami.

Evin Lewis and Kyle Hope were joint top-scorers for West Indies on 35. Umesh Yadav took 3-36 and Hardik Pandya 3-40.

Holder finished the innings with a flourish, making up with his bowling for the direction and purpose they lacked with the bat. When West Indies batted, you wondered if they would choose not to bat at all if there was a provision for the two captains to just negotiate and decide a total India had to chase. They would still have brokered a better deal than the 189 that they got, joint second-lowest total for a side batting first and playing out its allocation of 50 overs since the 2015 World Cup; the lowest belonged to Zimbabwe.

If the lack of direction showed in the 192 dot balls faced by West Indies - at one point, Evin Lewis, a T20I centurion against India, had faced 15 straight dots from Umesh Yadav - they managed only tame dismissals whenever they tried to push the scoring rate. However, there was another factor at play, the slowness of the pitch, which they exploited decisively in the second half of the match. (CMC)

          Comment on Thank You, Winston Churchill: The House of Saud and the UK, A Bloody Marriage Begun a Century Ago by jason voorhees   
JASON Y The cruel irony was the correlation between industry and post-colonization. The British needed workers for their factories especially in "mill-towns" like Bradford so immediately thousands of Pakistanis and Bangladeshis poured in. Jamaicans did not seek any work at all. There was a period of time when they were allowed to stay in the UK, so they did. But essentially the last throes of mass-industrialization occurred as Britain was withdrawing from former colonies so South Asians and Africans and Caribbeans got on the boat.

          Slow batting sinks India, West Indies stay alive   
Indias much-vaunted batting line-up collapsed on a slow track, allowing underdogs West Indies to pull of a stunning 11-run victory in the fourth cricket one-dayer here.

The West Indies, which had failed to challenge India enough in this series, scored a modest 189 for nine, but the visitors ended 11 runs short of the target.

Proven finisher Mahendra Singh Dhoni (54 off 114 balls) looked a pale shadow of his previous self and failed to steer India home despite spending considerable time at the crease.

India needed 31 runs off the last five overs with both Dhoni and Hardik Pandya (20 off 21) in the middle but the visitors were all out for 178 in 49.4 overs.

The five-match series is still locked in Indias favour at 2-1 after the opening match was rained out. The fifth and final match of the rubber will be played on July 6 in Jamaica.

From overs 35 to 43, India scored just 23 runs, making heavy weather of the chase. The 44th over by part-timer Roston Chase fetched India 16 runs that eased off the pressure a bit but the team still fell short.

West Indies captain Jason Holder (5/27) not only removed Virat Kohli (3) upfront, he also got rid of Pandya at a crucial juncture in his memorable five-wicket haul.

It was one of the slowest innings by Dhoni slowest as he took 108 balls to get to his 64th fifty in the ODIs. He scored his first boundary in the 103rd ball he faced.

The stumper-batsman eventually holed out to Alzarri Joseph at he boundary ropes off Kesrick Williams off the last ball of the 49th over, leaving the team struggling at 176 for eight.

Holder removed Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami in the last over to complete the win.

Opener Ajinkya Rahane (60) hit his fourth ODI fifty in a row in an otherwise poor batting display by top-order. He shared a 54-run partnership with Dhoni.

The visitors lost three wickets -- Shikhar Dhawan (5), captain Virat Kohli (3) and Dinesh Karthik (2) -- upfront but with Rahane and Dhoni both at the crease, India were still favourites to win the match.

Earlier, all-rounder Hardik Pandya (3/40) and Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav (2/31) yet again proved very effective in the middle overs while Umesh Yadav (3/36) scalped three batsmen later on in Indias dominating bowling show.

Coming into the must-win match, West Indies elected to bat and were off to a steady start but lacked character for a flourishing finish against the visitors.

Openers Evin Lewis (35) and Kyle Hope (35) put on 57 runs in a steady start for the hosts before young Pandya broke the partnership by getting rid of the latter.

Kuldeep, who has looked impressive from the beginning of his debut, made life tough tough for the West Indies batsmen with his stock ball and googlies.

Lewis tried to open his arms, going for a drive off Kuldeep, but the ball turned a bit and went straight to captain Virat Kohli at mid-wicket.

With Pandya and Kuldeep bowling in tandem accurate lines, the hosts found the going tough. Lack of application from the home batsmen made the job easier for India.

Paceman Umesh Yadav also contributed in cleaning up the middle order by scalping three batsmen.
Once the openers departed, it got worse for the West Indies, which needed a good partnership and a batsman, who could stay on the crease for a longer period.

The chinaman bowler struck for the second time when he deceived Roston Chase (25) in the air and the ball clipped the bails, leaving the team at 121 for there in 31.2 overs.

The hosts maintained a decent run-rate but now they needed to accelerate to present some challenge before the formidable batting line-up.

Pandya returned and dismissed wicket-keeper Shai Hope (25) by having him caught behind and soon Umesh Yadav had his first victim in rival captain Jason Holder (11).

Half the team was back in pavilion. The responsibility to get the side a fighting total was on Jason Mohammed and Rovman Powell.

However, both of them departed soon. Powell, attempting to hit one hard from Umesh, miscued one to Ravindra Jadeja while Mohammed hit straight to Jadeja while slashing one from Pandya.

Umesh troubled tail-enders Devendra Bishoo (15) and Ashley Nurse (4) with his fast and rising deliveries. One such ball hurried on to Nurse took an edge and Umesh caught it diving to his follow right.


          Thompson outclasses 100M field   
Jamaicas Elaine Thompson, the reigning double Olympic sprint champion, put on the afterburners in the final 20 metres to rack up a convincing victory at Saturdays Diamond League meet in Paris.

Thompson clocked 10.91 seconds to finish ahead of Ivorian Marie-Josee Ta Lou (10.96sec), with Nigerian Blessing Okagbare-Ighoteguonor claiming third (11.09).

The Jamaicans time was well short of the worlds leading best of 10.71sec she set at last months national championships in Kingston, but she looks in good, understated form going into the August 4-13 world championships in London, where she will focus on the blue riband event.

"The result is not bad, especially after two false starts," said Thompson.

"This was great preparation for the world championships.

American Sam Kendricks, bronze medallist at the Rio Games, scored a psychological blow over French rival Renaud Lavillenie with victory in the mens pole vault. Hendricks won the US championships with his first vault over 6M and racked up a best of 5.82M in the French capital, Lavillenie having failed three times at 5.77M and ending the night with just one successful vault, at 5.62.

Qatars Mutaz Barshim underlined his credentials as current undisputed world number one by winning the mens high jump with a best of 2.35M, the Olympic silver medallist beating off competition from Ukraines Bohdan Bondarenko (2.32M).

President Suriname aangeklaagd wegens moord

De Decembermoorden uit 1982 hangen nog steeds als een zwaard van Damocles boven de Surinaamse gemeenschap.

‘God heeft mij president gemaakt, dus een rechter haalt mij hier niet weg,’ zei de president van Suriname Desi Bouterse tegen zijn aanhangers. Hij reageerde op de eis van 20 jaar die tegen hem wegens moord is uitgesproken.

Eigenlijk ging het vanaf het begin al mis in Suriname. In november 1975 werd het land tegen de wens van de overgrote meerderheid van de Surinamers onafhankelijk van Nederland. Ze wilden net als Curaçao en de andere Antilliaanse eilanden een eigen plaats binnen het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden. De politiek zette door. Duizenden Surinamers vlogen met de Bijlmer-expresse naar Nederland, met een enkele reis Paramaribo-Schiphol. Ze werden en masse in de Bijlmer, een Amsterdamse nieuwbouwwijk, ondergebracht. Op het ogenblik heeft Suriname 550.000 inwoners en wonen er in Nederland ruim 350.000 Nederlanders van Surinaamse afkomst.

Slavernij

Het land was in 1674 een Nederlandse kolonie geworden. Na de door de Hollanders verloren Derde Engels-Nederlandse Oorlog werden ze gedwongen New York voor Suriname te ruilen. Engels werd in New York de voertaal, het Nederlands in de nieuwe kolonie. In Suriname hadden Engelsen suikerplantages gesticht waarvoor veel slaven waren geïmporteerd. Meer dan 1200 Engelsen vertrokken naar Jamaica en Nederlandse kolonisten namen de plantages over. Slaven bleven, net als de slavenhandel. Naar schatting zijn tussen de 400.000 en 500.000 slaven naar Suriname verhandeld. Pas in 1863, toen het echt niet meer anders kon, werd de slavernij afgeschaft. Inmiddels waren veel slaven gevlucht van de plantages. Ze leefden in de ondoordringbare oerwouden aan de rivieren van het binnenland. De marrons, afstammelingen van deze gevluchte slaven, vormen ongeveer een kwart van de huidige bevolking. Na 1863 werden Hindoestanen uit Brits-Indië als plantage arbeiders geïmporteerd. ‘Kantraki’ werden ze genoemd. Na afloop van hun contract bleven ze in Suriname. Ruim 27 procent van de huidige bevolking is Hindoestaan. Ook Javanen en Chinezen uit Nederlands Indië werden aangeworven. Bij de volkstelling van 2012 bleek 14% van Javaanse herkomst. De directe afstammelingen van de slaven, de Creolen, vormen bijna 16 procent. Desi Bouterse is een creool.

Drugshandel

Na de onafhankelijkheid ging het ondanks de enorme bruidsschat van Nederland economisch slecht. Corruptie en onbekwaamheid leidde tot een staatsgreep van het leger in februari 1980. Bouterse werd voorzitter van de NMR, Nationale Militaire Raad. In de nacht van 7 op 8 december 1982 liet hij 15 prominente Surinamers, tegenstanders van zijn bewind, vermoorden. ‘Het was zij of wij’, verklaarde hij later. Nederland bevroor onmiddellijk de ontwikkelingsgelden. Marrons in het binnenland waren inmiddels in opstand gekomen. De Nederlandse regering - Ruud Lubbers was premier - overwoog in 1986 een invasie om Bouterse en zijn NMR af te zetten. Op het laatste moment werd hiervan afgezien. Nadat de NMR tot overeenstemming met de Marons was gekomen trad Bouterse af en worden er vanaf eind jaren tachtig verkiezingen gehouden. Op de achtergrond bleef Bouterse de sterke man. Creolen, die voornamelijk in de hoofdstad Paramaribo wonen, bleven de economie èn het leger overheersen. De Decembermoorden hebben tot grote verdeeldheid en trauma’s binnen Suriname en de Surinaamse gemeenschap in Nederland geleid.

Inmiddels raakte Bouterse betrokken bij de internationale drugshandel. Vanuit Suriname werden op grote schaal handel gedreven met de Colombiaanse FARC. De Surinamers leverden wapens en de FARC betaalde met cocaïne. In 1999 werd Bouterse in Nederland bij verstek tot 11 jaar cel veroordeeld wegens betrokkenheid bij een drugstransport van 474 kilo cocaïne. Europol vaardigde een internationaal arrestatiebevel tegen hem uit. Ook zijn zoons zijn bij drugshandel en wapensmokkel betrokken. Zijn oudste zoon Desi werd in augustus 2005 door een rechtbank in Paramaribo tot 8 jaar cel veroordeeld en Dino, zijn andere zoon, heeft in 2015 in New York zestien jaar en drie maanden gekregen eveneens wegens drugs- en wapenhandel.

Ontwikkelingshulp

In november 2000, een maand voor het verlopen van de verjaringstermijn begon het Openbaar Ministerie in Suriname alsnog een gerechtelijk vooronderzoek naar de Decembermoorden. Zeven jaar later leidde dit tot een stafproces. Desi Bouterse is hoofdverdachte. In juli 2010 werd hij echter tot president van Suriname gekozen. In Suriname is de president niet alleen staatshoofd en regeringsleider maar is hij ook hoofd van de uitvoerende macht en opperbevelhebber van het leger. Het proces sleepte zich voort. Tot Bouterse in april 2012 het parlement een amnestiewet liet aannemen. De amnestiewet bepaalde dat alle verdachten van de Decembermoorden, inclusief Bouterse, gevrijwaard worden van strafvervolging. De rechtbank besloot hierop dat een constitutioneel hof de rechtsgeldigheid van deze amnestiewet moest toetsen aan de grondwet. Het constitutioneel hof moet echter nog worden opgericht. Nederland schortte de geplande ontwikkelingshulp aan Suriname wederom op. Ondanks de wet besloot het Openbaar Ministerie in december 2015 alsnog de verdachten van de Decembermoorden te vervolgen. Dit leidde tot de eis van 20 jaar gevangenisstraf voor Bouterse. De fractievoorzitter van Bouterse’s politieke partij liet inmiddels weten dat de rechtelijke macht het hoogste orgaan is binnen de rechtszaal, maar dat daarbuiten de amnestiewet geldt. ‘Iedere uitspraak zal daarom niet legitiem zijn en als zodanig onuitvoerbaar.’

          Kohli questions team's 'shot selection' in 4th ODI   

India skipper Virat Kohli has blamed team's wrong shot selection for the 11-run loss against West Indies in the fourth ODI of the five-match series at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on Sunday.

After West Indies eked out 189 for nine wickets off their 50 overs, India failed to counter West Indies' bowling attack and were eventually bundled out for 178 in 49.4 overs.

"We bowled really well to restrict them to 189," ESPNcricinfo quoted Kohli as saying after the match.

"Our shot selection wasn't up to the mark, losing crucial wickets at crucial stages. You've got to keep up the momentum through the game. Credit to the West Indies bowlers, they created those dot balls that induced those mistakes."

The 28-year-old asserted that it was one of those instances where the team faltered with the bat and called on his team to put that behind and concentrate on the last game.

"The pitch felt a bit two-paced, apart from that I don't think there was anything else in the pitch. We faltered with the bat and that can happen in this game. We just have to put this behind us and come back fresh for the next game," he said.

It was skipper Jason Holder whose five-wicket haul sealed the crucial win for the hosts and kept them alive in the series heading into the fifth and final match.

He dismissed Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Shami in the space of just four balls to finish with the figures of five for 27, his best-ever ODI figures as India folded for 178.

For India, Ajinkya Rahane (60 off 91 balls) and former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (54 off 114 balls) were the only players who provided their side with some fight back.

India, who are still holding a 2-1 lead in the ongoing ODI series following their comprehensive wins of 105 and 93 runs in the second and third match respectively, will play the series-decider on July 6 in Sabina Park, Jamaica.

MATT JENSON

Growing up in rural New Hampshire Matt was guided by a deep spiritual connection communicated by the simplicity, beauty and truth of nature. As a child, visiting relatives in Boston often, he fell in love with the musical styles of the African diaspora: Jazz, Blues, Reggae & Afro-Latin music and this led him to completing a master’s degree in jazz studies at the New England Conservatory of Music. He has studied with Geri Allen, Ran Blake, Dave Holland, Eddie Palmieri and Donna McElroy (for voice) and performed with Judy Mowatt, Ronnie Earl, Mighty Sam McClain, Julien Kasper, Cyril Lance and others. Included in Matt’s artistic persona is a deep concern for the socio-political-psychologicalspiritual health of humanity and the planet. This, combined with his ever evolving creative drive, provides the bedrock for nearly all of Matt’s artistic output as a talented keyboardist, singer, composer, arranger and band-leader, (leading the groups Combo Sabroso, the Liquid Revolution, Mix Up Mix Up, and co-leader of the group Rebel Tumbao). A gifted educator, Matt is currently on the piano faculty at Berklee College of Music where he is well-known for his smash hit class, “The Music and Life of Bob Marley,” which has given him the opportunity to plumb the depths of Marley’s artistic contributions via numerous trips to Jamaica and with working associations with many in Marley’s inner circle including Rita Marley and guitarist Chinna Smith.

STAN STRICKLAND

Singer, saxophonist, flutist, and actor Stan Strickland, has performed throughout the United States, Europe, the Caribbean, New Zealand and the former Soviet Union. He has appeared at Jordan and Symphony Halls in Boston, Carnegie Recital Hall and Town Hall in New York, and at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. He has played with the Boston Pops, Take Six, Zap Mama and the Village People and performed with jazz greats Yusef Lateef, Herbie Mann, Pharoah Sanders, Danilo Pares and Marlena Shaw. He has opened up for Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins and the Bare Naked Ladies. He has received many awards including the prestigious Eliot Norton Award for Outstanding Solo Performance in theatre for his one-man show, Coming Up For Air. He is currently on the vocal faculty at Berklee College of Music and is
Co-director of Express Yourself, an arts immersion program for at risk youth in the Boston area.

Abstract
This article reviews a number of key constitutional developments that occurred in the Caribbean region during 2016. These include: the orderly transfer of power following elections in Jamaica and St Lucia, confirming the region’s continuing commitment to parliamentary democracy in the post-independence era; the overwhelming rejection of proposals to amend the country’s Constitution by voters in a referendum in Grenada; the announcement of plans to hold constitutional referendums in Barbados and Jamaica on whether to replace the Queen with a ceremonial president; the 50th anniversary of Barbados and Guyana’s independence; and a review of how homosexuality should be treated by the law by both the Supreme Court of Justice in Belize and the Caribbean Court of Justice.

          Jamaica delays wholesale rate cuts   
Jamaica’s Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR) has postponed the introduction of lower termination rates for fixed line calls after an appeal by the island’s incumbent operator, Flow. Last month the OUR ordered operators to slash the charge for terminating local calls from JMD41 (USD0.31) per minute to JMD25 on 1 July, with further cuts planned over the next few years, but the Jamaica Gleaner reports that Flow has petitioned the regulator to rethink the move, saying it would have a major effect on its cash flow. In a letter sent to the OUR, Flow said: ‘The OUR does not appear to have given consideration to the magnitude of such sharp reductions on the immediate cash flow of the company, and the immediate and direct impact this reduction will have on working capital, investments incentives and potentially the long-term welfare of the society itself.’ The telco is calling for the rate reductions to be implemented more gradually.

          U-17 Women start W/Cup preparations   

T&T Under-17 Women’s team is well into preparations for the qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA Under 17 Women’s World Cup, scheduled to be played in Uruguay. T&T will host Group A of the Caribbean leg of the Concacaf Championship where it will face the US Virgin Islands, Curacao and Grenada from August 23-27. Haiti will host the final Caribbean round.

The winners of each of the five preliminary groups will advance to the final round to join Haiti, where they will be divided into two groups of three teams each, with the top three teams qualifying for the final Concacaf tournament as the CFU representatives.

Currently a T&T squad comprising of 25 players is being prepared by English-born women’s coach Joanne Daniel. The T&T team is also currently participating in the TTFA Women’s League Football (TTWOLF).

“Preparation is going well at the moment, We are working very hard, currently playing in the Wolf League and overall I would say things are progressing nicely although there is always room for improvement,” Daniel said Saturday.

“Overall I think the players are progressing well. We have a larger squad of 25 at this time which is a bit high at this stage so close to the tournament but at the same time we want to give the players the best opportunity and then end up with the best squad for the competition.” The T&T Under 17s lost 3-0 to Real Dimension at the weekend, despite giving a good account of themselves against a team that comprises six senior national players.

According to Daniel “We lost 3-0 against a team that is made up of a number of senior national team players, former and present, so for our team of players that are 14,16 or 17 to play and lose 3-0 isn’t bad and I thought there were a lot of positives to take from the match. This team came together in March after being together for six weeks last year so it’s not a huge amount of time to get ready. We are trying to get a lot accomplished in a little amount of time to get them ready. We play in the qualifiers in August and then the next round is in October.”

Daniel who has lived in T&T for the past nine years, noted “In the league so far we played teams that finished in the top three last year in our first two games, we lost 2-0 and 3-0 in good matches so I am happy with how we are progressing but still there is work to do. I am confident we can do very well in the first rounds. We have very good attacking players, our defensive play and defensive structure I think needs more work and that is what we are focusing on. We have to win the first rounds yes but at the same time we have to be preparing to play the likes of Haiti and Jamaica.”

“Our goal naturally is to get to the Concacaf stage and give it our best shot to qualify for the World Cup” She added. The team trains Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and play in the League on Saturdays.

The Under 17 staff includes Daniel (Coach), Ricarda Nelson (Manager), Glennon Foncette (Goalkeeper Coach) and Natalie Harper (Equipment manager).

There really are no major differences in the casting of a love spell for a gay man or a lesbian woman, a straight LESIBIAN man or heterosexual woman, the approach is pretty much the same. In my line of work when it comes to gay clients I have found a serious lack of understanding or compassion on the behalf of other practitioners for their gay and lesbian clients, being a gay man myself, I have worked hard over the years to develop a rapport with my gay and lesbian clientele, with that said I have also managed to maintain a positive rapport with my straight clients as well, working metaphysically on behalf of clients is easy once you develop a good understanding of the base needs and realize that we all are simply human and it is within our nature to love and to be loved.Now, aside from the fact that we are all human, whether we are straight or gay, when it comes to gay magic, there are a few minor tweaks in the magical approach that must be acknowledged and put into play to successfully unite or reunite same sex lovers. I have worked hard over the course of my magical career to develop a series of rituals and spells that I utilize specifically for my gay and lesbian clients.If you are a gay man or lesbian woman who is in need of attracting a new lover, or perhaps your desire is to reunite with an old flame, I can help you manifest your desires and realize your goal of bringing that special someone into your life. If you are single and looking to attract a brand new lover, click the link above to order a "Gay Love Spell" to get started. If you are a gay man or lesbian woman looking to reunite with your lover, you will need to order my .

          Vegan Options in Jonesboro, Arkansas   
Although I've lived in Memphis for the past 14 years, I spent the first 21 years of my life in a smallish Arkansas town called Jonesboro. It's about an hour northwest of Memphis. I was born there, went to Nettleton high school there, and even stuck around for four more years to get my journalism degree at Arkansas State University. I moved to Memphis at age 21, a few weeks after college, to pursue a journalism career that eventually — just this past year — morphed into a career in communications and PR.

My parents and grandmas still live in Jonesboro, so I go home often to visit. And when I'm there, my parents and I almost always go out to eat or get takeout. When I first went vegan in 2004, finding vegan options in Jonesboro — town of about 70,000 people — wasn't easy. Of course, I can make do anywhere, even if it means just eating fries and a salad. But that's no fun! Thankfully, as Jonesboro has grown in the past few years, so have the vegan options. They even have two health food stores now! That's more than I have in Midtown Memphis, which is home to ZERO health food stores (there are a couple Whole Foods and Sprouts stores out east, but they're a 20-minute drive from my house).

Anyway, I thought it'd be helpful to compile a short list of vegan options in Jonesboro just in case anyone on the internet happens to be searching. I've definitely had Jonesboro transplants, many of whom move there to work at ASU, email me when they first move there to ask where they can eat.

You'll find the most vegan options in one place at the Stem & Spoon Cafe inside the Truck Patch health food store. It's a small lunch counter offering sandwiches, juices, and smoothies. They also have a killer salad bar.


Stem & Spoon's Foxtail Sandwich comes with roasted zucchini, tomato, onion, bell pepper, avocado, chao cheese, and pesto vegan mayo on sprouted grain bread.


Check out the salad bar! My mom and I often stop in here for massive salads. I've been known to go a little crazy and end up with a $15 salad since it's weighed by the pound, but if you're careful, you can avoid that.



The Truck Patch is also a great place to shop for vegan products, like the Vegan Egg, Tofurky frozen pizzas, Treeline cheeses, vegan cream cheese, and so much more. We like to support them since they're a small regional Arkansas chain.

My personal fave place to eat is Uncle's Maddio's. It's a build-your-own pizza chain that has vegan cheese (Daiya) and tofu as topping options. We eat there a lot, and I always pile on all the toppings (can you see a theme developing here? I can't control myself in a build-your-own environment!).


There are a couple Thai places — Sai Thai and Thai Taste. I haven't tried Sai Thai yet, but my best friend Sheridan (who also hails from Jonesboro and visits her family there often) and I recently checked out Thai Taste. Our server immediately understood that we were vegan when we asked for no egg in the summer rolls, and she even wrote VEGAN in big letters on our ticket for the chef. We split an order of the Tofu Summer Rolls with peanut sauce. Very good!


For my entree, I opted for Drunken Noodles with Fried Tofu. These had a nice level of heat, and I loved all the veggies.


No matter where you are in the country, you can probably always count on finding vegan options at Chinese restaurants. My parents and I are fans of Oriental Express, where I often order the General Tso's Tofu.


And sometimes, I add an order of Vegetable Tempura.


We also hit up Chin Chin Express a lot because my parents love their chicken. Chin Chin doesn't have tofu, but the Vegetable Udon Noodles and crispy Vegetable Spring Rolls are fantastic.


Chin Chin is an Asian fusion place, so they have a mix of Chinese and Japanese food. I typically also order the Avocado Rolls.


You can also find vegan sushi options at Fuji Japanese Steakhouse, Hiro Japanese Cuisine, and Sumo Japanese Steakhouse. Fuji has Tofu Inari, so it has my heart as the best place for sushi in Jonesboro!


My mom LOVES Mexican food, and we typically go to Pepito's or Kandela Grill. Pepito's has a vegetable burrito that can be made without cheese. I get nervous about the beans in Mexican places, for fear they're cooked in lard. But this burrito is bean-free, just veggies! I don't have any pictures of it, sadly. At Kandela Grill, I always get the Vegetable Fajitas because they include SO MANY veggies in their mix — mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, and more.


Jonesboro is FILLED with chain restaurants, and you can always find vegan options at the Olive Garden or Taco Bell. They also have a Qdoba Mexican Grill and a Blue Coast Burrito, which both have vegan burrito filling options. My favorite chain, though, is Tropical Smoothie, of which they have two locations. Tropical Smoothie serves Beyond Meat chicken in any of their wraps! Here's the Jamaican Jerk Wrap with Beyond Meat.


There are a number of other options that I haven't explored, including an Indian place called Tandoori Restaurant. My parents don't like Indian food, so I'll have to try that on my own.

As for grocery shopping, there's the aforementioned Truck Patch. Also, Jonesboro just got a Natural Grocers location, and they carry all kinds of vegan products, including Miyoko's Creamery Vegan Mozz and Farmhouse Cheddar, Good Lovin' dips, Gardein products, Bee-Free Honee, Little Secrets vegan M&Ms, and more!

If you read this post and know about other options I didn't mention, please let me know in the comments! I'm always looking to try new vegan things in Jonesboro. Also, I should note that, any time you're eating out at a non-vegan restaurant that has veganizable options, there's always a chance they've snuck in some butter or some other undesirable thing. I don't stress much about that when I'm eating out, so I don't ask many questions. If you're more strict, you may wish to double-check some of the things I mentioned (just don't tell me what you learn because I'm happiest with my "don't ask, don't tell" approach! No vegan police!).
