The Abduction and Murder of Amber Hagerman

A Trip to The Grocery Store
The late winter in Texas is a mild time usually, with steady wind and a biting chill in the air. The season is one of change, the life force of the previous year is fading away to succumb to a newness imbued by the heat of the Spring and Summer. January 12th, 1996 in Arlington, Texas was no different, the sun was shining, the wind was steady, and the temperature hovered around the mid-sixties. On this day Donna Whitson and her two children, nine-year-old Amber and five-year-old Ricky Hagerman were in Arlington visiting Donna’s parents, Glenda and Jimmie Whitson. The family arrived at their destination around 3pm and upon disembarking Donna’s car the kids asked to ride their bikes, the ones that Donna had her parents keep at their home for them. Donna, without a second thought, assented to the request with the limitation that the kids stay within a block of their grandparents’ home. She wanted them to be safe.
Once astride their bicycles and away from nagging adults, Amber disregarded the boundary set upon her and her brother. Amber led Ricky to the local neighborhood play spot, a shuttered Winn-Dixie grocery store and after approximately 15 minutes of riding around the parking lot and loading dock the younger Ricky was ready to turn back home, whether out of fear of being beyond their boundary or being tired is unknown. What is known is that Amber had elected to stay and ride her bike around the parking lot of the store on her own for a while longer, that Ricky went home alone, and that in the intervening time something horrible would happen to Amber that would shape substance and conscious of the her family forever.
On January 12th, Mr. Jim Kevil was sitting on his back porch looking out over his yard and fence, a view that happened to encompass the next-door Winn-Dixie store’s loading dock and the street it was on. Around 3:15 pm Mr. Kevil saw a lone young girl riding a colorful bike around the grocery store loading dock when a dark colored truck quickly pulled into the parking lot. Jim Kevil would later state that the driver of the truck was either white or Hispanic and between the ages of 25-40, this unknown subject grabbed Amber, who let out a scream and began kicking her abductor. The driver then put Amber in his vehicle before he sped off West bound down Abrams Road. Not just a passive witness, Mr. Kevil called 911 to report the incident to the police and to try to aid in the capture of the kidnapper and the return of the little girl. This would be the last time that anyone would see Amber Hagerman alive.
After arriving home alone five-year-old Ricky Hagerman was sent by his family back to the Winn-Dixie to retrieve his sister. Turning his bike around Ricky did as requested, only to return to an empty parking lot. Only a brief eight minutes had elapsed since he had last seen his sister, but it was too late; Amber was gone. Ricky once again arrived alone to the Whitson home prompting Grandfather Jimmie Whitson to race to the store in his car to search for Amber himself. Jimmie would arrive at the store at about the same time as an Arlington police officer, summoned by Jim Kevil’s 911 call did; the only remnant of Amber was her abandoned bicycle.
Law Enforcement, including the local police and the FBI (involved as a result of the pleas of Amber’s distraught family), coupled with a mass of volunteers began a wide net search for the missing girl, but came up empty. Amber had vanished.
Discovery
January 16, 1996 is a day that Amber’s family will never forget. Four days after she had been taken by an unidentified male from that Winn-Dixie parking lot, Amber Hagerman’s body was discovered in the early morning hours by an anonymous man walking his dog near the Forest Hills Apartment Complex in Arlington, Texas. Her body was found face down in a creek approximately 4 miles from her abduction site. Prior to this, apartment maintenance workers had been in that area and seen nothing, suggesting that the remains were either placed there after the workers had left or moved down stream by a torrential rainstorm that had just occurred. Amber’s family was informed shortly after the discovery, shocked they initially refused to believe the news with her father quoted in a New York Times article written at the time as saying, “She’s still alive” to the reporters covering the case and camped outside the Whitson home.
Amber was discovered wearing nothing but a single sock and the medical examiner would later confirm investigators suspicions, there was evidence of sexual assault and physical abuse, the cause of death: lacerations to the neck and throat. Additionally, the medical examiner stated that there was evidence that Amber had been kept alive for at least two days after her abduction before she was murdered, and her body disposed of.
Investigation Still Ongoing
More than 20 years later the investigation is still technically ongoing, to date the Arlington Police Department (APD) has not formally announced that they have any suspects or persons of interest. APD Detective Ben Lopez stated in a recent interview that the APD still receives tips regularly regarding the case and the department thoroughly investigates each one like it could be the piece of the puzzle that finally gives Amber’s family closure and justice.
An explanation of this unsolved murder most likely lies in the fact that Amber’s body was left in running water for an indeterminate amount of time, coupled with the storm that raised the creek level and most likely moved the body from the dump site, forensic evidence would have been all but erased and any physical evidence diluted or washed away. Not helping the investigation is the fact that there is only one witness to the crime: Jim Kevil was the sole person to come forward with information regarding the abduction, despite the fact that Amber was taken in broad daylight on a residential street. To date no one else has come forward with evidence or statements to aid in the apprehension of the unknown subject. Some reports assert that this is a result of the immigrant community in the area and the traditional apprehension of this population in talking to law enforcement thought that remains unsubstantiated speculation.
It is believed that Amber’s abductor and murderer was a stranger to her given that he took her by force and did not attempt to talk her into his vehicle. With this, I agree with the official narrative. Where I differ is on why Amber was taken. Based on the speed at which the abduction occurred it suggests to me that Amber may have been watched for some time before being taken. As stated previously Amber Hagerman was abducted in a window of approximately 8 minutes from when her brother left and then returned to bring her home. The official narrative is that this was an act of extreme opportunity when the perpetrator just happened to be driving by when he saw her alone. This would suggest that there was an event that triggered sporadic actions in the perpetrator, to quote a popular television show there must have been a stressor that induced this action.
Regardless of the why, the fact of the matter is that Amber Hagerman’s killer is still at large. He has gone unpunished for his heinous actions against this innocent little girl and by extension her family. As a result of chance and a fluke of nature no evidence or additional witnesses remain of what happened on that fateful winter day. Amber’s killer is nameless, and her family is left with no closure or answers, only questions and heartache.
Possible Suspects
Richard Lee Franks
Richard Lee Franks was charged on March 16, 2000 with the aggravated kidnapping of Opal Jo Jennings from Saginaw, a town a few miles north of Fort Worth. On March 26, 1999 6-year-old Opal was playing with her 3-year-old cousin in a vacant lot next to her grandparent’s house when Franks pulled up to the lot in his black Mercury Cougar. He then exited his vehicle and approached the kids feigning conversation with them. When Franks was close enough, he plucked Opal off the ground, punched her in the chest and put her in his car. What happened next was not unlike in Amber’s case, a large-scale search was launched for Opal led by her family and the local police department, it would not be for five years that Opal would be found. Her remains were discovered in a wooded area while two individuals were riding their horses along a remote trail. As a result of the state in which the remains were found, there was little physical or forensic evidence. What was clear was that the cause of death was most likely the result of a blow to the head. Franks would later be charged with Opal’s kidnapping but not her murder as there was no evidence to prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that Franks had indeed murdered her. In fact, he claimed that he had driven her to a local store to get a drink and left her there. What lends credence to Franks as a potential suspect is the similarity between Amber and Opal, and the way that they were taken. Both were seemingly impulse driven abductions based on the speed in which they occurred.
This link between Opal and Amber was not solely based on the research of internet sleuths. Mark Simpson, an investigating officer in the Hagerman case in an address to the National Children’s Advocacy Center’s 26 Annual National Symposium on Child Abuse to the fact that Franks had prior criminal history involving children, all young, brown haired girls and that Opal’s kidnaping occurred in the same county as Amber’s. Based on proximity, prior history, and similarity in method at the very least one could expect that APD would investigate Franks as a person of interest however, that has not been the case.
Terapon Adhahn
Born in Bangkok, Thailand. Terapon immigrated to the United States as a child when his mother married a U.S. serviceman and he returned to the United States. As he grew older Terapon would become a Buddhist monk as well as follow in his stepfather’s footsteps and join the U.S. Army. Adhahn has been connected to (either directly as the known perpetrator or suspected) multiple offenses, both resolved or unresolved, against children throughout Washington State including rape, kidnapping, and murder. He has also been questioned in connection the Amber Hagerman case by APD though has not been named as an official suspect.
In 1990 Adhahn was charged with sexual assault against a 16-year-old relative. This charge would result in him being forced to register as a sex offender and enter rehabilitation but as a first offense was not enough for him to be deported.
On May 31, 2000 an 11-year-old unnamed (for reasons of privacy) Spanaway County Girl was abducted on her way to school. She was bound and taken to a secluded training field close to the Fort Lewis Military Base where she was repeatedly assaulted over the course of an hour. After the assaults Adhahn left her bound on a road nearby where she would be discovered walking, still bound with her eyes taped over, by a Tacoma City Police Officer.
In December 2005, Adre’anna Jackson would also be abducted on her way to school, she disappeared from Lakewood in Pierce County, Washington and was never seen again. Over a year later, April 2006, skeletal remains were found in a field near her Tillicum neighborhood. Investigators showed pictures of Adhahn to residents who identified him as a known handyman who frequently worked in the area. He is regarded as a person of interest in this case.
On July 4, 2007 Zina Linnik had been watching a firework display with her siblings on a hilltop near her home when her father, Mikhail Linnik, on his back porch presumably also watching the display, heard his daughter cry out. When he arrived at the spot that Zina was taken all that was left was a single shoe she had been wearing, Mikhail also saw a gray Chevy Astro van speeding away and he was able to partially make out the license plate. Four days alter Terapon Adhahn was arrested for the kidnapping of Zina. However, this speedy apprehension was not enough, on condition of prosecution not seeking the death penalty, Adhahn led investigators to the remains of young Zina Linnik. She had been strangled with a zip tie though Adhahn would claim that her death had been an accident.
Additionally, while living in the Tacoma area, Adhahn was responsible for the care of an unnamed (again for the sake of privacy) 12-year-old girl. Her mother allowed the girl to live with Adhahn since she was unable to provide for her daughter, Adhahn only a “friend of her mother’s boyfriend”. Over the course of the next three years Adhahn would subject the young girl to repeated sexual assault, stopping only when she was able to run away after being assaulted at gun point.
Why Terapon Adhahn? It has been reported that, coupled with his extensive and horrendous history with children, Terapon lived for a time with his aunt in the Fort Worth area around 1996. During the investigation, law enforcement noticed striking similarities in the method of kidnapping, assault, and victims in the Adhahn case and with a few officers having been trained in Texas for the Amber Alert System, were familiar with the Hagerman case. Additionally, he used a similar vehicle in the Fort Lewis incident as was seen in Amber’s abduction. Terapon has been question regarding Amber's abduction and murder though not formally named as a suspect or even a person of interest.
Similar Cases
Heidi Seeman – San Antonio, Texas
On August 4, 1990 11-year-old Heidi Seeman was walking home from a sleep-over at a friend house the previous night. Her unnamed friend walked Heidi a part of the way home, to a midpoint between their houses at the intersection of Stahl road and Willow Run Street. Approaching the intersection Heidi’s friend as well as neighbors in the area reported seeing a red car with dark tinted windows pass by the girls slowly, and the driver watching them intently. Thinking nothing much of it, the girls parted ways and Heidi was never seen again. On August 25th, 1990 her remains were found in Hays County, Texas. No additional details were released regarding her death aside from the fact that a medical examiner ruled her death as a result of homicide.
Erica Botello – San Antonio, Texas
Closer in circumstance to Amber Hagerman, 7-year-old Erica Botello was taken on August 23, 1990 from the playground (or road next to depending on source) near her apartment complex. She was not unsupervised or alone the entire time she was playing. Erica was with her Father however he stepped inside for a brief time. When he went back outside, Erica was gone. Her remains would be found on August 25, 1990 in a storm drain about a mile from her home and abduction site. There is little information regarding Erica’s as she was and is eclipsed by the case of Heidi Seeman, a young white girl just a few years older than Erica, a girl of Hispanic dissent, from a wealthier side of San Antonio to the working class area that the Botello family lived in. Any information found on Erica is usually limited to brief sentences and always in tandem to Heidi.
Legacy and Aftermath
What happened to Amber Hagerman is not a mystery, it is known. She was taken from her family, held and assaulted over the course of two days, killed, and her body was disposed of in a creek not far from her abduction site. Her killer did all of these things without leaving any evidence, and slipped away. What isn't known is who did those things to her? Was it someone she knew? Had that person been watching her? Was this all really the result of chance and opportunity? One can hope that these questions, and more, will be answered one day but with each passing day the possibility that they never will be becomes all the more real.
It has been 24 years since Amber Hagerman was abducted and murdered yet her legacy lives on.
Amber’s abduction and murder was the impetus for the creation for the AMBER Alert System. This is a coordinated effort between law enforcement, radio, television, and cellphone broadcast systems to alert the general public in the region of an abduction to the incident and any information that law enforcement has on the abduction such as their physical description as well as the description of the vehicle they were last seen with. This system has resulted in the safe return of almost 1,000 children in the United States since its inception as a regional program in 1997, then national (and international) in 2000 however it is also under scrutiny for saving so few and being so annoying as an alert results in an alarm blaring through the device that receives it, and for saving so few. Critics question whether it saving just one life is worth it, is saving so few worth it?
I say yes.

2020.09.15 19:29 xHourglassx Horrible Service Situation- Need Advice

Listen to my tale of woe and please give me some advice. I don't know where to go from here.
I took delivery of a Model Y in San Antonio, Texas in June. My wife and I live in Odessa, TX, which is about 6 hours from the nearest service center. For some reason, I wasn't offered home delivery for the vehicle; it was fine, we made a getaway weekend out of picking up the car. It appeared to be mostly perfect, with a few minor panel gap issues that I felt I could address later. While I absolutely love the car, I did notice two potentially major issues later on. For one thing, there was a bad leak in the rear hatch that would cause water to spill into the back when it rained. Additionally, the front driver's side wheel makes a loud clicking or grinding sound whenever it's driven forward or backward at low speeds. The sound cannot be heard from inside the car, but it's very apparent when standing outside or driving with the window down. It's concerning.
I made a service appointment for August 28 in Austin. I was quoted a turnaround time of just a few hours and offered some Uber credits. Because we're from 6 hours away, I fussed until we got a loaner. I don't like to be "that guy", but I knew that if something went wrong with the car, we'd have no way back home. Sure enough, a few hours later I checked my app and saw that the estimated completion date was now September 4th. Had I not begged for a loaner, we would have been stranded 6 hours from home. Anyway, we took the loaner back home with us and awaited updates on the car. September 4th came around and I never received any updates by text or email regarding the car. I started messaging the number they gave me and I was told no work had been done yet. I cannot fathom why I was even given the appointment on the 28th if they were so busy they couldn't touch the car for a week.
On September 8th, I suddenly got notification that the car was ready for pickup! Awesome. Except when I checked the invoice for tech notes, I noticed that they didn't even try to replicate the sound from the wheel because "It was thunder storming and so it was too loud outside for us to hear any noises from the car". Baffled, I messaged the tech and asked whether someone could please double-check once the storm dissipated. He insisted that they needed me to make a second appointment; they were in a rush to get the loaner back as they're in "high demand". I explained that the 12-13 hour round trip commute is logistically very difficult for us, and I can't simply take it back for a second service appointment for quite some time. Conversely, it would only take a couple seconds to get in the car and replicate the noise. It's very apparent. Plus I was out of state visiting family because a close relative had just died. I couldn't have gone to pick up the car that day even if I'd wanted to. What the tech said next floored me. "Sorry to hear about your family. Can a close friend possibly take your loaner from your house while you're away and drive it to the service center for us?" I didn't dignify that with a response.
I can't get in touch with anyone from the service center. The email address I was given weeks ago has yielded nothing as the guy won't respond. The messaging service auto-replies with "Your service appointment has concluded". I can drive all the way to Austin and get the car, but if it's still making a grinding sound then I won't feel comfortable taking it on a 300-mile trip back home (across the West Texas desert, no less). If I leave it there, they may not even touch it unless I make a new appointment (soonest opening is weeks from now), and god forbid there is a storm outside and they decide working on cars is suddenly impossible until it's clear skies again.
Is there any way to escalate this? What would you do?

2020.07.20 15:06 ZandrickEllison The results are in for: LEAST Valuable Player

The NBA league office announced that all awards will be officially based on play PRIOR to the bubble. With that, the cases are locked, the campaigns are closed, and the voting will begin.
While the media may focus on the MVP award and other prestigious honors, reddit has the distinct honor of awarding the LVP. The LEAST Valuable Player. It's a tradition that dates back to 2016-17, when aging Indiana SG Monta Ellis won the inaugural trophy and then promptly disappeared from the NBA forever. In 2017-18, Minnesota SG Jamal Crawford won the (dis)honor with some incredibly bad defensive numbers. Last season, New Orleans SF Solomon Hill won LVP by helping to sink a drowning team and accelerating Anthony Davis' decision to fly the coop.
Before we announce this year's winner, let's review the criteria and caveats:
--- Obviously, the worst players in the league are the ones who sit at the end of the bench and don't get any playing time. However, this award focuses on players who log a decent amount of minutes and consequently affected their team's play the most. Simply put: the more you play, the more damage you can do.
--- And that actual "damage" is important. If you're on a tanking team, no one cares about your poor play; it may even be a positive. I'm also ignoring young players (under 21) who are still developing and can't be expected to be solid players yet.
--- Similarly, we don't want to judge players within the context of their salary any more than the actual MVP does. We also do not weigh in injuries either. For example, the Wizards would have a hard time competing with John Wall on the sidelines (0 games played, $32M in salary), but we want to focus on players' on-court performance instead.
dishonorable mentions
PG Mike Conley, Utah: 28.6 minutes per game, -0.80 RPM
We're using Mike Conley to reiterate that the LVP does NOT factor salary into the equation any more than the MVP does. But if it did, Mike Conley and his $33M salary may be in trouble.
It was a disastrous start to the season for Conley. Playing in a new role as a second fiddle to another guard, he could never find his groove. His assists plummeted (down to 4.3 per game), his free-throw attempts cut in half (from 5.8 to 2.9), and he only shot 42.9% from two-point range. That said, he still shot pretty well from 3 (37.6%) and played OK defense, keeping him off our official ballot.
SF Miles Bridges, Charlotte: 30.7 minutes per game, -2.68 RPM
Like Mike Conley, Miles Bridges seems like a great guy whom you'd hate to criticize. Alas, that's our exercise here. Caught in between positions, Bridges hasn't been able to figure out his rhythm on offense in the NBA either. He hasn't shot well (33% from three, 48.6% from two) and doesn't get to the line enough (2.0 FTA) to make up for it. The advanced stats get even worse from there (although to be fair, they get dragged down by playing in a bad starting lineup.)
Fortunately for him, Bridges is spared by his youth. At 22, he's technically over our "21 year old" threshold, but it still feels unfair to pick on his growing pains as a sophomore. Perhaps in time, he can find a role that can take advantage of his athleticism and talent. But be warned: the clock is ticking. We're taking the kid gloves off soon. Bridges and fellow analytics-allergic Kevin Knox (-7.7 RPM!) will be entering Year 3 next season and will need to step their games up to avoid LVP discussion.
SF Kyle Kuzma, L.A. Lakers: 24.6 minutes per game, -0.74 RPM
Kyle Kuzma can score if need be, but his skill set never made him a natural fit to play third banana to superstars like LeBron James and Anthony Davis. He's not a 3+D player -- he's more of a no-3 (30% this year) no-D player. At the same time, the LVP is about negative impact, and it's hard to find much of consequence here. After all, the Lakers still finished with the # 1 record in the West. Kuzma struggling to find his way is like a tree falling in the woods or a person farting in an empty elevator – ultimately it didn't matter.
SF Andre Iguodala, Memphis/Miami
It feels like ancient history now, but this past offseason, the Memphis Grizzlies acquired Andre Iguodala in a trade (under the presumption he may be dealt again.) According to official reports, Iguodala and the Grizzlies MUTUALLY decided that he wouldn't play for Memphis and wouldn't even report to the team in the meantime. Okay. Fine. We'll go along with that.
Still, that situation leaves a sour taste in the LVP headquarters. Memphis turned out to be better than expected, and could have used an extra rotational player. And even if Iguodala wouldn't have helped much on the court, he could have been a valuable mentor for their young kids. That's the least you can expect for a nice $15M in salary.
our official top 5 LVP ballot
(5) PF Anthony Tolliver (POR, SAC, MEM): 15.6 minutes per game, -3.60 RPM
I've always had a soft spot for the wise ol' owl, Anthony Tolliver. He's reportedly a great teammate and locker room presence. He also started to develop into an effective stretch four towards the end of this career.
But alas, the end of his career may have snuck up on us sooner than we expected. Tolliver disappointed for Minnesota last season, and completely flopped in his return to Portland. At age 34, he doesn't seem to be a viable rotation player anymore. He didn't play quite enough to merit LVP, but he still played more than he should have.
There's a chance Tolliver comes back next year to serve as a veteran mentor and pseudo-assistant coach somewhere, but it's more likely that he retires. If he does, he'll have played for 10 different franchises in his not-so-illustrious but very respectable career.
(4) SG Bryn Forbes, San Antonio: 25.1 minutes per game, -0.95 RPM
The NBA is all about shooting these days, and Bryn Forbes can shoot. He's hit an even 40.0% from three during his NBA career so far, and wasn't too far removed from that this season with 38.8% on 6.0 attempts per game. As a result, his true shooting percentage (57%) was above average. The Spurs lacked spacers, and Forbes fit that bill.
So what's the problem...? Turns out, basketball is more than a halfcourt game. And whenever the ball crosses that pesky midcourt line, Bryn Forbes starts to become a liability.
At only 6'3", Forbes is undersized to play the SG position, which is where the Spurs played him 74% of the time (according to basketball-reference.) Partly due to those athletic limitations, he only registered 0.5 steals per game, and blocked a grand total of 0 shots in his 1579 minutes of action. The advanced stats get ugly; Forbes ranks near the bottom at his position in DRPM, DBPM, all the alphabet formulas that you can cook up.
At the end of the day, LVP is about negative impact, and there's plenty here. Forbes is not a bad player in a vacuum, but he did not help the Spurs this year. In fact, their undersized lineup is a big reason why they're struggling so much on defense (25th in the NBA). As a direct result, they're on track to miss the playoffs for the first time in decades.
(3) SF Mario Hezonja, Portland: 16.3 minutes per game, -2.79 RPM
During the entire run of the Damian Lillard - C.J. McCollum era, Portland has struggled to figure out their wing rotation. That would be tested even more this season, with familiar faces like Moe Harkless, Al-Farouq Aminu, and Evan Turner slipping out the door. The trials and tribulations kept coming like Damian Lillard was Job, as injuries ravaged the Blazers' new depth chart. The team didn't need a star to emerge at forward -- but they needed somebody. Anybody.
In theory, that player should have been Mario Hezonja, a former lottery pick and a live body with good athleticism and size at 6'8". Signed this summer for a modest price ($1.7M), Hezonja had the chance to jumpstart his NBA career with a major opportunity on the team. Instead, he flopped like Marcus Smart taking a phantom elbow.
Hezonja's biggest problem is that, at age 25, he still hasn't found his feel on the court. He's not a good shooter (32.8% from three), and doesn't use his athleticism to find his way to the line (1.1 attempts per game.) He was a non-factor (5 PPG, 3 RPG) on a team that desperately needed him to step up. In fact, the Blazers were so desperate for help that they not only signed Carmelo Anthony, but they played him over 32 minutes a game.
Again, we see a real "LVP" candidacy here with a direct effect on the standings. The Blazers' getting a big fat nothing from Hezonja was a major part of their struggle to get to .500 this season.
(2) C Dewayne Dedmon, SAC/ATL: 17.6 minutes per game, -2.51 RPM
We're not supposed to factor in salaries into this equation, but Dewayne Dedmon's situation merits a mention for context. The Sacramento Kings signed the big man to a head-scratching 3-year, $40M deal this summer (seriously.) Clearly, GM Vlade Divac thought his young Kings were only a few veterans away from making the playoffs, bringing in (and over-paying) Dedmon, Cory Joseph, and Trevor Ariza.
Among the three, Dedmon turned out to be the most disappointing for several reasons. He didn't play well to start the season, and got usurped in the rotation by underrated Richaun Holmes. Rather than suck it up, take a deep breath, and take a relaxing dive in his new Scrooge McDuck money pool, Dedmon started to whine and complain and push for a trade. For a team that was struggling, Dedmon's headache became the last thing they needed. Ultimately, they ditched him back to where he came from in Atlanta.
Now, being difficult and being a prima donna isn't enough to get you LVP honors. You have to stink on the court as well. And sure enough, Dedmon started to check those boxes. Billed as a stretch five after hitting some threes in Atlanta, Dedmon lost his shot in the SMF airport baggage claim. He shot only 19.7% from three for the Kings, registering a 47.3% true shooting percentage on the season. His defense is OK, but it's not good enough make up for his poor offensive play. He's not bad enough to get LVP, but he hurt his team this year.
(1) PG Isaiah Thomas, Washington: 23.1 minutes per game, -2.75 RPM
We've awarded three LVP trophies in the past, and a familiar pattern is starting to emerge. The most dangerous players aren't necessarily the bad players; they're the players who used to be good. Because of their prior success, they tend to get overplayed by their coaches and drag their teams down with them.
It wasn't too long ago that Isaiah Thomas found himself in the MVP conversation for the Boston Celtics, as his incredible shotmaking helped make up for any defensive limitations he may have as a 5'9" player. That said, a small player like Thomas is always going to have a thin margin for error to remain a winning player. He needs to be GREAT offensively to make up for his defense. Unfortunately, his offense has not been great since his infamous injury. He can still make shots (hitting 41.3% of his threes), but he's not getting inside the paint and not getting to the free-throw line (1.9 attempts per game.) As a result, his true-shooting percentage lagged to 53.1%, well below league average.
If Isaiah Thomas isn't making scoring efficiently, then what is he doing to help a team win? He's not a great distributor (3.7 assists per game.) He's a very poor rebounder (1.7 per game.) And yes, that defense is still a major problem. According to ESPN's RPM metric, Thomas graded as a -4.2 impact per 100 possessions, the second worst in the league at PG after Trae Young. Basketball-reference lists his "defensive rating" at 121. For comparison's sake, the worst team defense in the league still held teams under 116. (That worst team? The Wizards.)
You can make an argument that there's still a place for Thomas in the NBA as a sparkplug scorer off the bench. Alas, that's not how the Wizards had been using him this season. He started 37 of 40 games for the team. Largely as a result of that, the Wizards' starting lineup was atrocious defensively. Fellow starters like Bradley Beal and Rui Hachimura ranked toward the bottom of their position in defensive metrics as well. When your lineup stinks defensively, a good coach may look in the mirror and say: hey, maybe we need a change here. Sadly, quick reactions are not Scottie Brooks' strong suit. He has the type of sloth-like speed that even frustrate workers at the DMV. The Wizards eventually dumped IT, but it took far too long to make that shift.
To be fair, the Wizards' options at point guard were limited with John Wall injured. Veteran Ish Smith is mediocre right now, and Shabazz Napier arrived late in the season. Still, the point here is: almost any competent point guard (like a Napier) would have helped the Wizards more than Isaiah Thomas. He had become a negative for them. The cold hard truth is that: it's very difficult to win basketball games with Thomas starting. And given that, he is our official LVP.

2020.07.18 17:55 Army_Bot Summary For: Weekly Question Thread (4/1 to 4/7)

Am I an idiot?
25 with a BA and JD wanting to enlist and interested in 35L. I'll need a mental health waiver for a Lexapro prescription two years ago (Doc prescribed after feeling lethargic, had no issues with self-harm; was not committed to any facility). I've considered commissioning, but I don't believe my packet would be very competitive. I don't have great references, or a ton of leadership experience on my resume and the added mental health waiver.
Would I be an idiot for not trying to commission? And any tips for what I should have my doctor include in his statement to help me with the medical waiver?

I don't think I'll be able to get option 40 in my contract due to waivers, but being in the 75th is all I want to do in my life currently.
I know I need to be tip top shape for consideration if I don't have the option 40 in my contract. How can I prepare myself to be THAT guy that gets recommended for RASP etc?
I'm 23, no surgeries or injuries, but have not ran or worked out in 2 years. Not fat, still slim but running has always been my weakest skill. Lifting, carrying, anything heavy I can do without breaking a sweat though. I know there are no magic formulas out there other than work your ass off and get fit. But are there any constructive advices to help me get volunteered for RASP?

I am currently in the process of enlisting through the CID direct accessions program. If I smoked weed once in the past that was almost 7 years ago, would this be an auto DQ from applying to the program, similar to how it would be for OCS? Thank you for any help.

I'm on my way out with a separation of a couple months out. I feel like I'm going to be worked up until the point of transition. Is there any protected time while gearing up to ETS or do I just get those 10 clearing days.

I am currently in DEP as a 68C. I ship out end of this month. I am now concerned that I should have chosen 68W so that I might have a broader range of school opportunities and experience.
Anyone have any thoughts on 68W vs 68C? Should I switch to 68W so that I can attend special schools, and have more opportunities? My plan is to eventually do IPAP. (I already have a BA degree).
Thanks!

I've been doing a lot of research online about the weight problem that people face when trying to join the military. I'm currently overweight, which isn't normal for me, I've just had a rough couple of years. I'm usually really active so I believe, once I get back in my routine, it will be easy for me to get back to my normal weight in 6-7 months.
My question is, what if I want to join before I meet my healthy BMI? Is that possible? I read that there's a waiver they can give out to over weight people, and the army basically gives them a year to lose the extra pounds while they serve. But I called a couple fo recruiters and they didn't know what I was talking about. Have any of you heard about exceptions when it comes to weight?

Not sure if this is the right place or not. Someone is saying they don’t know when they’re leaving for basic when they just had one for February. Supposedly MEPS had computer problems and lost her file, along with others. So they sent her “to the back of the queue” effectively starting her over.
In short: can anyone confirm or deny that MEPS in Columbia, South Carolina lost files on people lately? Due to computer issues.

  1. Enter the country with a student visa / tourist visa (I'm getting mixed signals on this - some claim it's possible, others claim it's not)
  2. Enlist under a 2 year contract with a related MOS (ex: 94R1 Avionic And Survivability Equipment Repairer)
  3. After getting citizenship, I'll apply for the WOFT program

The first hurdle I have to leap is the citizenship itself, which is already the end goal for most people. Getting a green card is almost impossible for me, I have an uncle and aunt who are citizens, but nothing closer. The DV lottery is also out because of my nationality.

I'd appreciate any input / feedback, thank you!

Hello all, I could use some advice. Current Department of the Army Civilian, no prior service. Work in the NCR. Very technical, persnickety person; I love logistics and the job I have. I like Army culture, I work with officers all day and think it's great, the Army is a noble organization whose morals align with my own. But, 1) I come from a military family and I've always had a desire to serve...and no, DA Civilian sadly does not count in my mind or my family's. 2) Full disclosure, I'm worried about not being able to progress in my field (QuartermasteAcquisition/Life Cycle Logistician) due to not possessing Veteran points; in fact, I've already missed out on several opportunities for that exact reason. USAJobs is awful, and I'll never make GS-14/15 at this rate as a Civilian without veteran status.
So, I've decided to resign my job and join the Active Component. I have a college degree, but I'm debating between going to OCS, signing for six years and trying for QuartermasteOrdnance Branches (which for some reason people do not seem to want, and I can't imagine why, I haven't been bored a single day in Supply/Logistics), or just taking the cash bonus and SPC, enlisting for two years, then spending six in the reserves.
Factors for consideration: I'm 25, 10 lbs overweight and high on the tape measure test (but down 15 from three months ago and working on it). 99 ASVAB, Bachelor's in Computer Science. Writing skills are good. A clearance and a year and a half of experience working for DoD (DA specifically). The recruiter says with my ASVAB and my technical abilities I can pick any MOS that's available at MEPS (mine will be Fort Meade). If I go officer, I'd want to try and stick to something applicable to my career, but if I go enlisted I think I just want to see the world and have a cool experience/check the box. I'm thinking 35P, Cryptologic Linguist (I know you have to take the test and go to DLIFLC; I speak a few languages other than English and Spanish, but just shy of fluency), it sounds cool and I like languages. Here's the kicker: I'm incredibly shy, soft-spoken, and rather awkward...should I try for officer or just enlist? I'd like to be an officer, but I'm worried I won't be an inspirational leader.
Also, my recruiter when I asked said he didn't know anything about Cyber direct commission, but I was interested by what little I've heard. Anyone know anything about that? Thank you all--and I'm very excited for the future.

Is being 32 too old to join?
The short of it is that I'm single, no kids, and have made some choices in life that have brought me to where I don't have a whole lot going for me, and not a whole lot to look forward to over the next several years except slogging through low level wage work while trying to build something for myself. In every objective sense, joining the Army seems like an ideal thing to do right now. And regardless of my age, it seems like it could be the very step I need in order to get my life going.
I do have some waiver issues. Fortunately I found a recruiting office willing to work with me despite all the hoops I've had to jump through. I'm pretty far along in the process and can get approved in the near future. But that also means I can't exactly be picky when it comes to picking a job at MEPS.
But at the same time, I wonder if being a recruit at my age might put me in a position that's even worse than I'm in now. If there aren't any jobs worth taking at MEPS, I'm still going to have to take one. But then I don't want to find myself in a position where my life ends up worse off than it is now. I guess the worst thing that can happen is I mop floors for four years, only to get out and use the GI Bill and other benefits to really start advancing my life. Still seems to be as good of an option for me as any other low wage job I can take right now while working towards the same thing.
On the other hand, if there are decent jobs available when I go to MEPS, I could end up liking the Army and deciding to see what opportunities are there.
But going back to my original question, is joining in your early 30s a worthy pursuit?

Alright, I need some advice on how to deal with my family.
I'm 23 and am soon going to be getting a packet put together for OCS. Took my ASVAB yesterday and my AFQT score was 99 (a month ago an Air Force recruiter nearby basically ghosted me once I said I had a business degree and was interested in OTS, which left a sour taste in my mouth even if that's just a bad recruiter).
Well, my family never wanted me to join the military but are especially furious that I'm leaning towards the Army now. They now mock me and say I'm wasting my life and that I will either die in Afghanistan or come home hopeless. I was an honors student at my University and graduated with a 3.8 GPA. I've never been a troublemaker. Yet they still say these things. It sucks so much, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised given that I'm from the Northeast where joining the military is typically not a popular idea (esp. Army and Marines).
How do I get them on board? Am I making a mistake? Am I just a little bitchboy? All feedback appreciated.

I’m supposed to be leaving for basic training on Monday, and I just weighed myself this morning and realized that all my physical preparations have caused me to lose 4lbs since my last meps visit. I was under weight the first time I went to meps and barely passed by with an 18.2% BMI. So I NEED to be at least the same weight I was last time. With that being said, is it completely impossible for me to put on 4lbs between now and Monday? Am I kidding myself thinking this is doable? Would also like to add that I am NOT trying to put on REAL weight, I just need to gain enough water weight to pass my BMI check so I can ship out.

Aspiring Recon Soldier’s questions
First and foremost, I’m obviously in /army, so I don’t mean force Recon for the marines.
I’m currently in DEP. I signed a contract for 19D, it was mostly on a whim. Then the more I researched, the more I realized it was the smartest move for me. With that research, a lot of doubt come up as well. I’ve never felt so reassured but also completely lost. I’ve been wondering, as someone who wants to be as purely recon as possible. I’m a supportive personality type. While I want to be involved “cool guy shit,” I’m much more drawn to a supportive role. I’ve always been this way. The idea of knowing that I kept my friends safe during contact by providing them with the information required.
But anyways, while I’m 150% sure I want to be recon. I’m not sure what the best route is. 19D is the most straight forward, but also feels like a bottleneck with no way to expand. My biggest issue with 19D, it sounds like it’s more sitting in an armored vehicle and preforming recon that way. I don’t care about legging it location to location. I honestly hate the idea of being stuck in a Bradley, Stryker, or Humvee. I want to be dismounted, crawling through the dirt, sneaking around the objective.
Now with that said, I’ve started to think becoming an 11B would make more sense for this. Though I’m deathly afraid of becoming an 11C and having all aspirations destroyed in one fell swoop by an even/odd count at OSUT.
So now here’s the question. My ship date has to be pushed back due to some negligence by me and my recruiters. Nothing damning, just us not paying close enough attention to my packet. I’m to go back to the MEPS station Monday and resign a new contract. I feel like this is my chance to reevaluate. I want whatever advice anyone has to offer.
My recruiter’s thoughts as well as mine: Ask for 19D again, if it’s too far out of a ship date. Ask for 11x and see about an option 4 or option 40. Then fight like hell to be sent into an infantry reconnaissance unit, tabbed or not.
Couple side notes: • 21yo architecture student • I want as many schools as I can get under my belt • 82 ASVAB

I'm getting so frustrated with the joining process. Between my recruiter trying to get me to lie to meps. Me refusing to, to meps being dumb about the stuff we weren't even worried about. To how long it takes to get pharmacy records. To the fact that I'm broke and need a job and can't get one that pays enough to support my family. Maybe he was right. Maybe I should have lied just for the speed. Like stupid medical stuff in the past that isn't a disqualifier and he's trying to get me to hide it and conceal it and bring up stuff at meps (if they ever send me) as if I forgot it becase it's supposedly sounds better in person than writing it down. I want to serve my country and support my family. I didn't think it would be this hard for a seemingly healthy person who works out and runs and had a manual labor job before. Like I'm not saying meps and the evaluation process is broken or anything cause I'm not qualified to make that Statement but it sure makes it hard for a person who decides to tell the truth about basic stuff that alot of people have dealt with. I wish there was a better way that I could prove that just because I was sick or got hurt in a sport in the past that it doesn't effect me now and we can all move on. But then the freaking records bring up stuff I actually forgot about so now I have to resubmit my stuff after the rest of everything comes back. Is this normal?? Like why would they design a system that so clearly wants you to lie. The recruiters literally all wanted me to lie and said it was totally normal and that meps dqs people for stupid stuff. Im probably just frustrated because basically no one will call me back for civilian employment and meps seems hell bent on giving me a hard time. They said this specific doctor is known to give guys trying to get into the army a hard time. Idk what that's all about. I wish I could take my packet to a different meps. This is crazy. I literally went to a doc and got cleared in a physical for all the issues they asked about and sent them up with my pre-screening but still they want more shit. I want to do what's right and do what I'm told I just need a cash flow. Gotta buy diapers somehow. I'm going to be out of a house in a month and this was one of my only hopes. I have a skilled trade and no one's wanting to hire a 2nd year apprentice right now. Terrible time of year to get work.

I’ve been in contact with a recruiter and I’m in the process of enlisting. However, I’m a highly sensitive person (cry easily) and I’m afraid I’ll just be too sensitive for the military. I really want to join and I’m hoping I can get some reassurance.

Hi, my question is, how are modern military Medics (in this case army) identified? Do they wear some red cross patch, some distinctive ssi? I tried looking this up, but couldnt. If you could at the very least point me to the correct manual or regulation, i'll gladly read it on my own!
Best wishes and may God bless this country!
Edit: I'm a dumbass and i forgot to add "medic" after "military" so it seemed i was asking how are militaries identified.... yeah, i'm a dumbass. I'm asking about medics, not the whole army

I don't know if this is the place or if I can say since I just enlisted and haven't gone to basic yet. But the Army issued an official notice that they are holding all new recruits and basic training for a minimum of 2 weeks. this was posted at the beginning of April. I also hear alot of people not having ship dates anymore and being postponed indefinitely. Yet, I do have a ship date of April 20th. Idk why but it just seems weird to me. I'm not in a in demand job (in my opinion), im an 11B, although i do have an option40 contract with RASP and airborne. Also my recruiter hasnt given me any detailed info about when i leave, how i leave, what to bring, that kind of stuff. So i dont mind leaving next week, I just dont like the not knowing if this is a definite plan or not. So any insight from anyone on whether you think ill ship or not?
P.S. i had an initial ship date of March 23rd, then it was pushed to May 4th, then it was pulled back to April 20th

Does anyone know the criteria used to determine which recruits received active duty status (i.e. paycheck and benefits) with their delayed ship date?
I was informed that only recruits in dire circumstances would qualify -- I was told to quit my job and cancel my lease but was somehow still denied (i.e. I will have no source of income while waiting to ship).
To make matters worse, I'm not even eligible for unemployment since I quit my job and my previous employer's health insurance ends at the end of the month so god helps me if I get sick.
I've already spoken to my recruiter. They had the same amount of knowledge and frustration that I did.

army,
I'm currently in the reserves as a 38B (Civil Affairs), enjoying it but becoming a pilot has really peaked my interest because of this job I have 4 years left on my contract with the reserves. Would I be able to drop a Warrant Officer Flight Candidate packet at any time?
When I was originally joining the army, I wanted to class as a 09W but at meps, I came back with a partial color blind (MILD) and my recruiter was insistent that I would not be selected for any sort of flight due to that an waivers. I settled but have not given up. Civil Affairs treats me well.
My question is, am I able to try for a slot in the future? If so how does that work during my contract? Would my color sight be deter mental to it? It was only the color circle plate test that really messed me up. I can distinguish very well.

Army broke my contract?
So I was in the process of re-enlissting, had my contract signed and given a ship date of April 6th. The contract was a four year, 18x(SF recruit) contract. On April 4th(2 days prior to ship date), I was informed from my recruiter that ARSOF denied my contract. The memo letter said that I "did not meet medical fitness standards" which is absurd because I'm in great physcial shape and I had to be clear on everything in Medical at M.E.P.S. before I was even allowed to sign a contract, just like all the other potential recruits. Is this legal? Or is there anything I can do to fight this? I know once you're in the D.E.P. that is technically a legal binding contract. My recruiter essentialy refuses to help me, getting no answer from him at all. I was given two days to decide to re-negotiate or terminate my contract. If I refused to re-negotiate, it would be seen as me "quiting the Army" <--From my recruiter. I've searched the boards here and haven't found anythng related to this, so I'm at a loss. The things that really upsets me is the fact it was two days prior to my ship date, I had put in my two weeks at work and had all my living arrangements made for obvious reasons, and I'm told there is nothing I can do unless I go in as a different M.O.S..

I’m shipping under 14H (peoples opinions on ADA in this sub got me worried) in the next couple months and have been struggling to find more detailed descriptions on what the job entails.
For instance, when I graduate AIT will I most likely go directly to a patriot battalion or is there a chance to go to THAAD or different units.
Secondly, my recruiter who was also a 14H strongly recommended trying to go JTAGS after AIT, which he was a part of. Is this possible coming straight out of AIT or does it require more time in to go to JTAG.
Also I am wondering how easily I can “control my destiny” by working hard and graduating top of AIT class. Would this allow me to go to better locations/get in better schools? Finally if you have any day to day information on the job/advice I’d appreciate it. Thankyou in advance.

I'm probably gonna sound like a dumbfuck cherry, but I have to ask, how feasible is it to take college classes if i choose infantry? My current contract is 25S, and the little I can find about it online describes the washout rate as decently high, and the MOS is exceedingly technical and boring as fuck. I know infantry mostly do area beautification and get yelled at, but realistically can college courses be taken? How often do you go out to the field and for how long? I chose 25S for the signing bonus (I have a bit over 20k debt in student loans that defaulted), but my real desire is to do something actually fun and challenging (I'm not a dumb adventurist, I realize infantry kill people and its hard as balls, but I both want the challenge and comradery). The Signing bonus is negligible in comparison to 3-4 years of my life wasted in front of a screen. A few added questions below;
  1. Is 2 classes for an online accounting degree realistic for a per semester basis? It's technically 4 per 'normal' semester since each semester at UMGC (online regionally accredited university; they're accredited by umd so it's legit) is 8 weeks. Is that pushing it? Not trying to come off arrogant but I'm a fast learner and a smart guy, so essentially 2 classes every 8 weeks seems feasible. I don't party or drink so my free time could be split with classes if need be.
  2. Am I being a dumb adventurist for wanting to go infantry? I don't think i'm a high speed guy, but I'm just trying to ride out 3 years for the gi bill and some college credits. That being said I 100% understand the risks of a war happening tomorrow or during my IRR and getting called up to fight. That doesn't bother me as of right now, but I can't answer for 5 years from now.
  3. Are airborne contracts being offered right now? Are infantry and airborne bonuses being paid out? I realize if i drop my temporary reservation at meps I'll lose the bonus, but I really dislike the MOS from everything I've read, and I want to get out of my shell instead of being stuck with nerds inside a windowless jail essentially.

2020.07.16 18:26 stannsmash Offseason Review Series: Day 2 - The Washington Football Team

Washington is dead, long live Washington!

Division: NFC East

2019 Record: 3-13, 4th in NFC East

Coaching Changes

As the marketing says, this is a new RivERA. Almost the entire coaching staff has been replaced, except for the running back and special teams coaches, so let's all give a hand to Randy Jordan and Nate Kaczor for being survivors of the Rivera purge. Here are the highlights:
 

Head Coach: Ron Rivera replaces interim Bill Callahan

After an 0-5 start last season, and multiple season of mediocrity, Dan Snyder finally decided to pull the plug on Jay Gruden. Interim coach Bill Callahan did a...job. The question quickly turned to who would be the newest coach of the Washington Football Franchise. Would it be current OC and potential wünderkid Kevin O'Connell? Would they somehow steal away Mike Tomlin (remember this theory?) No. Enter in: Riverboat Ron.
Ironically, the only way that Washington was able to hire him was by defeating him: in week 13 of the 2019 season, Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice stomped through Rivera's defense to the tune of 248 yards on the ground. That was enough to seal his fate with owner David Tepper, who was vocal through the season about the panthers status of mediocrity.
While one can reflect on Rivera's tenure as mediocrity, I'd argue it is anything but. As 2-time Head Coach of the Year, Rivera lead the Panthers to 3 1st place finishes in the NFC South, including a historic 15-1 2015 season where the Panthers made it to the Super Bowl behind MVP Cam Newton. Rivera is the winningest coach in Panthers history, with an overall record of 76-63-1. However, he was not Tepper's choice, and for that as a fan I owe Tepper one.
While I would not fault Jay Gruden for all of the Redskins issues the past 5 1/2 years, he seemed destined to stay at most mediocre, never even reaching the highs Rivera has seen. Key Gruden personnel such as Kirk Cousins, Jordan Reed, Chris Thompson, Josh Norman, Josh Doctson, and more are long gone. Rivera has a brand new cast to work with, and I am excited to see it.
Rivera is a proven head coach with a long and public track record. He is known for being a big believer in a strong player-oriented team culture, and god knows this team needs some major culture help, especially in the front office. Looking at you, Mr. Snyder. GRADE: A
 

Offensive Coordinator: Scott Turner replaces Kevin O'Connell

Losing Kevin O'Connell to the Rams is disappointing, no way around it in my mind. Could the Rams get bitten in the rear and throw a green coordinator into the wind? Maybe. But out of all personnel we didn't keep, this one stung the most.
However, one must not dwell on the past too much. Enter in Scott Turner, son of Norv Turner. Turner comes over from Carolina where he was first the QB coach under his father, and then suddenly replaced his father once Rivera was fired. Some highlights of Turner include:
  • Being the Brown's receiver coach during Josh Gordon's monstrous 2013 season
  • Vikings QB coach during Teddy Bridgewater's best years
Yeah that's about it. He is young and hungry, and honestly, I am pretty happy with this choice as well. I have faith in him to develop Haskins, who is the future of the franchise as of now. Hopefully he does not fall out of favor as his father did with our favorite owner. GRADE: B+
 

Defensive Coordinator: Jack Del Rio replaces Greg Manusky

The Redskins defense in my opinion has been underwhelming in recent times, and in large part I blame Greg Manusky for this result. The Redskins defense last year ranked 27th overall, which any Washington fan will tell you is at best a slight shame and at worst a goddamn tragedy. Sure, our secondary was nowhere to be seen. Sure, we we're extremely injured a lot of the time.
But here's the worst part: our front 7 is actually really good. I mean come on: Jonathan Allen, Daron Payne, Matt Ioannidis, Ryan Kerrigan, Montez Sweat, and more should amount to one of the most potent QB rushing attacks of the year. However, the stats show that this is just not true. PFF listed us outside the top ten and in a more general sense the defense overall just seems too ooze mediocrity.
Enter in Jack Del Rio. This man has over 30 years of NFL experience, having multiple positions as both Head Coach and Defensive Coordinators in the past. While his head coaching career has not always been consistent, his defensive strengths are quite apparent. While Wade Phillips was responsible for the Super Bowl winning Broncos of 2015, we cannot forget that Del Rio groomed that defense for years prior, bringing them to the big game as well the year before. His earlier success in Baltimore and Carolina must also be mentioned, but my main point is this: Jack Del Rio is tiers above Manusky.
Del Rio and Rivera are on the same page, and switching to a 4-3 base defense with Del Rio should pay dividends to our defense, particularly our front seven. Look for a strong pass rush with Del Rio under control. GRADE: A
 

Quarterbacks Coach: Ken Zampese replaces Tim Rattay

Zampese formerly worked for the Greatest Show on Turf helping Kurt Warner, Isaac Bruce, and Torry Holt achieve offensive supremacy over the league. He worked for 12 years in Cincinnati, developing both Carson Palmer and Andy Dalton. In addition, he helped to develop Baker his rookie year under literal the dumpster fire of a head coaching regime Hue Jackson had in 2018. After seeing many of Haskins sexy throws to McLaurin, Gandy-Golden and Co. on Instagram, I feel some safety in the QB department for once. GRADE: A-
 

Head Athletic Trainer: Ryan Vermillion replaces Larry Hess

If there's one thing that reminds me of a Washington Football season, its injuries. While Washington was not the only injured team, it definitely felt like one of the worst last year. At the end of the day, the blame falls on random injury luck, proper practice, and the athletic training staff. Larry Hess had been employed by Washington for 17 years, so this move may be seen as a long time coming, especially concerning some of the particularly bad injuries of recent years.
Vermillion has rep with Rivera, as he is the former head trainer for the Panthers. While the Panthers have had some injury troubles of there own as of recently, I am still hopeful that Vermillion and his staff can help the situation over here. GRADE: B
 
 

Free Agency

Players lost/cut
Player Position New team
Chris Thompson RB Jaguars
Colt McCoy QB Giants
Case Keenum QB Browns
Ereck Flowers OG Dolphins
Josh Norman CB Bills
Trent Williams OT 49ers
Montae Nicholson CB UFA
Jordan Reed TE UFA
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie CB UFA
Wendell Smallwood RB UFA
Tony Bergstrom OL UFA
Donald Penn OT UFA
Vernon Davis TE Retired
Key Losses:
  • Ereck Flowers: Flowers had been written off as a bust. His tenure in New York and Jacksonville were both at best mediocre, and at worst disgusting. He gave up tons of pressures, and questions about his devotion to the team were at play. However, Washington was able to reignite Flowers by transitioning him from a tackle to a guard. In this new role, he only allowed two sacks while starting all 16 games. In the end, he was able to get the best pay-day back home in Miami, and for that I cannot hold any ill-will.
 
  • Josh Norman: 5 years. $51.1 million guaranteed. $75 million total. Honestly, I believed in Josh Norman when we first signed him. Coming off an All-Pro year on a stacked 2015 Panthers roster, Norman was proud to declare himself the best corner in the whole league. If you'd ask Norman today, he may still very well agree with that assessment. However, both the film and numbers point to Norman as a one year wonder. He was never able to replicate his 2015 success here, and was barely able to follow receivers like Revis or play the zone like Sherman. I would consider this the worst Redskins free agent signing of the Jay Gruden regime, hands down bar none. At least Matt Jones gave us some 100 yard games. His best games for us were against Cody Kessler and Matt Barkley. I am glad this is over with.
 
  • Trent Williams: Oh Trent-y boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling. I am truly sad to see Mr. Williams suit up for another organization this fall, assuming there will be a football season. Trent has been one of, if not the best offensive lineman in the entire NFL since being drafted 4th overall in 2010. Even as poor football and asinine front office moves surrounded him, Trent remained grounded and supportive of Mr. Snyder's hope to win football games. However, this relationship quickly turned for the worse. I could write this whole page about the Trent Williams saga, so instead I shall link this.
Goodbye Silverback.
 
  • Jordan Reed: If you thought the Trent Williams saga hurt me, oh boy you are not ready for this. Jordan Reed was probably my favorite Washington player up until last season. I was at his first big game in 2013, and boy was it a sight to see. A 3rd round TE from Florida, Reed was a bright spot on a more distant 3-13 Washington Squad still hoping for RG3's knees to spring back to life. When Reed was on fire, he was on. In his heyday of 2015 and 2016, Reed was a top tier Pro-Bowl talent TE possessing the quickness of a WR with the strength and build of a TE. However, we all know how this story ends. In 2013, he only played 9 games due to concussions. In 2014, he hurt his hamstring twice throughout the season yet still played in 11 games. As stated earlier, 15' and 16' were the golden years, but his hamstring came back to derail almost his entire 2017 season. By last year, he had over 9 known concussions, and one can only assume his hamstring is not in good shape. This is a classic example of injuries destroying a once promising career. If you are ever in need of watching some electrifying tight end plays, check this out, I promise you will not regret it. Thank you Jordan!

Key Additions:
  • Kendall Fuller: We are proud to welcome our 2016 3rd rounder and new Super Bowl Champion back to DC. Fuller has proven himself as a formidable slot cornerback, and should be a day 1 starter immediately. In fact, I could see us playing him on the outside if need be, as our secondary will become stretched dry rather quickly. If we can trade for Malik Jefferson, we could finally have all pieces of the Alex Smith trade back on the roster, including Alex Smith himself (hang in there buddy :( ).
 
  • Thomas Davis: A 3x Pro Bowler and bonafide former team leader of the Carolina Panthers, Thomas Davis is a welcome addition to our locker room. While at age 37 he may not start or play the most downs, his presence and familiarity with Rivera lends kindly to helping younger defensive players adjust and learn the new system.
 
  • Ronald Darby: Darby has never played a full 16 game season, and the past two seasons in particular seem to be injury ridden. However, our secondary is in need of a #2 to step up behind Fuller and if Moreau cannot make a leap then Darby better be a frog. This one year, prove-it deal will show whether or not Darby is ready to play with the big boys now.

Important Resigns:
  • Jon Bostic: The former 2nd rounder has bounced around the league since 2013, but with Reuben Foster tearing his ACL in training camp last year, Bostic was thrust into the starting LB slot. While far from perfect, Bostic played surprisingly well last year, recording 105 tackles, a sack, and a pick. It is unclear whether Bostic's ceiling is much higher then this going into year 8 of his career. The signing of Thomas Davis and an even better D-Line could help Bostic shine more as there is less pressure on him. Overall, a good team friendly extension on a starte1st off the bench quality player.
 
  • Brandon Scherff: Except for some penalty troubles, Scherff has been the most consistent offensive lineman this team has had in the past five years who is not upset at our current front office. While I am unsure if he was worthy of the Pro Bowl this past year, he is a stud OG and I am glad we have kept him his whole rookie deal. Hopefully a long-term can be worked out soon (though the deadline may have just past for franchise tagees), but keeping him on the franchise tag is far down the list of personnel issues.
 
 

Draft

Round Number Player Position School

UDFA N/A Thaddeus Moss TE LSU
UDFA N/A Steven Montez QB Colorado
UDFA N/A Isaiah Wright WR Temple
UDFA N/A Johnathon Johnson WR Missouri
Grades and Thoughts:
  • Chase Young: How much more can be said about this guy? Young was known for months to be the consensus number one talent of the draft, and that has not changed in the past months. He is a forced to be reckoned with, and putting him alongside our other D-Lineman is a scary sight. The often made comparison is that of the Bosa brothers, who both came into the league and wrecked havoc upon entry. I see Young doing the same thing, having a minimum 10+ sack season. Fear the predator y'all. GRADE: A+
 
  • Antonio Gibson: Almost every analysis I have read about Gibson describes him in one of two ways: 1) A swiss-army knife 2) A football player. While I can't disagree with either, these both seem to be big buzzwords that cable football analysis loves to float around to tons and tons of players. No matter how you describe him, Gibson's highlight real speaks for itself. Most project him into a RB role in our system, and with Chris Thompson setting sail with Jay Gruden Gibson can not pick up the slack here. If he can provide support to Peterson and Guice, great! If he could improve our dismal receiving unit, even better! I like this pick, but can also see it failing if Rivera and Turner cannot utilize him correctly. GRADE: B+
 
  • Saahdiq Charles: Using a picks here on the O-Line was a smart move, as our bench before the draft was extremely thin. Charles has been a part of one of the best O-line's in the nation at LSU, helping Clyde Edwards-Helaire run over the entire goddamn SEC. While there was a distraction of off-field issues, i.e. his six game suspension in his junior year. My understanding is that this stemmed from maturity issues and possible failed drug tests. Without these concerns, Charles would not have fallen to this round. Even with the character issue, his on the field product is fantastic, and if there was any coach to help Charles stay the right path it would be Ron Rivera. GRADE: B
 
  • Antonio Gandy-Golden: My information on Gandy-Golden and Liberty football in general is extremely limited, but the little I have seen is fantastic. At 6'4, 223 lbs Gandy-Golden is prototypical size and his highlights at Liberty reflect that. He is able to utilize is wingspan to have a large catch radius and contend for aired out balls. In addition, while his 4.6 40 yard dash may be slightly underwhelming, his speed on tape is evident and can work. As the receiver competition is wide open, Gandy-Golden can easily become the number two receiver on this squad if he puts in the work. And according to social media, it appears he is trying. GRADE: A
 
  • Keith Ismael: Another offensive linemen, but I struggle to see Ismael in any role besides backup this year. Ismael was solid player for his three year college career, and learning behind our O-line can do him well to bring him up to NFL speed. I can see him sitting behind Rouiller most of the year, but there's always the potential for something more if he is a diamond in the rough. However, I would have liked for a TE selection here. GRADE: B
 
  • Kamren Curl: Curl seemed to be an intrenched starter for Arkansas, but it is hard to see what is exactly unique with his skill set. At 6'1, 206 lbs he has the body of a safety or even cornerback, which tracks as he played both positions in school. The most known information about him is that he was suspended for flirting with a cheerleader his sophomore season, but if that is his biggest character concern then I don't really care. In addition, he later cleared the confusion, noting that the cheerleader just wanted a photo with him. GRADE: C
 
  • James Smith-Williams: A depth signing for our defensive front, which is all good in my book. However, this deep dive into the man shows that Smith-Williams has the potential to be more then a name in DC. His injury history is very troubling, but if he can put that Big Bang Theory Sheldon brain of his to our team then I am all for it. 7th rounders are the time for risks, and Smith-Williams case is a unique one where the injuries are not as much a concern for me. GRADE: C+
 
If the only player we keep out of this draft in the next 5 years is Chase Young, it will still have been a success. However, I have a feeling that other players will make an impact here, particularly with Gibson or Gandy-Golden breaking out in a rushing or receiving competition. For Kyle Smith and Rivera's first draft, it could have gone a lot worse. The amount of BS spewed about us drafting Tua or trading down was EVERYWHERE online before the draft, so I am jus glad we didn't mess it up as bad as we could have. Overall, I'd rate this draft a B+, with the rating going higher if any of these other players break out as well.
 
 

Name Controversy

Look, both you and I know that this subject has been beaten to death, especially on this subreddit. So let us just establish the facts:
  • There has been ample push to change the name since the 1990s.
  • Dan Snyder said in 2013 that he would never change the name. "It's that simple. NEVER — you can use caps."
  • This month, Fedex, along with other major sponsors such as Nike and PepsiCo called on Snyder to change their name or face financial doom.
  • July 13, 2020 Snyder issues a press release stating the name and logo are both officially retired.
There are many more specifics and points of contention on this issue, and I think this WaPo graphic does a good job illustrating other key times that the name has been discussed or been a point of contention.
My thought? About damn time. Look, I understand that the name is offensive and have been all for changing it, but more importantly I just want us to focus on what ideally should be more pressing for this writeup: the players and the game. The politics of the name has been a distraction and disgrace to the proud men who have worn this city on their back for decades. Do not get me wrong: the actual name itself holds little meaning to me personally. However, I am younger than many fans of the team and understand the attachment some have had for their entire lives. Yet, I do not think we need to forget about Theismann, Baugh, Jurgensen, Doug Williams, Rypien, Riggins, the Hogs, and more just by retiring the name. I say, let this begin a new era in Washington football history where we can be remembered for playing a game we enjoy and love, not hurting others if we do not need to.
My personal preference for a new name as of now is Red Wolves. Maintaining the colors and HttR (Howl to the Red Wolves!) sounds nice, and the animal is theoretically indigenous to DC and the southeast US even as we may not see it commonly. If trademarks issues can settle, I believe we will hear the new name before the next season.
 
 

Sexual Harassment/Misconduct Issues

After finishing the Washington Post article today, I was left with a feeling of disgust and sadness, but not shock. Football has always been known as a "boy's club," and seeing women in positions of power in any NFL organization is not common. This is the reason why. While I do not know the situation of every front office, I would not be shocked if this is more common then one would suspect.
Now, do not get me wrong: this is disgusting and Snyder should be ashamed of himself. Letting this persist for over 20 years and clearly not giving any shits is despicable. I do not want to defend these actions in any manner. These men have done disgusting things, and the fact that Snyder has let them slide and persist for all this time is plain gross. This is a question about human decency and respect: do you respect your fellow person enough that you control what you say around them? That you think before you act? Clearly the Washington Football team has not cared about its female employees nearly enough. This is hurtful for everyone, male, female, non-binary, whatever. Please, just consider your fellow person when you are living your life. This is not hard.
 
 

Projected Lineup and Position Groups

 
Offense:
QB1: Dwayne Haskins
QB2: Kyle Allen
This should be Dwayne Haskins year to fully realize himself as a starting quarterback in the NFL. While I love watching his sexy instagram workouts, I can only get so worked up before needing to see the real deal. Since being thrown into the fray last year, we saw Dwayne progress in his decision making, but keep improvements in accuracy, particularly throwing mechanics, should be a focus this year. Even with a...subpar supporting cast (more on that later), this should be Simba's year to break out, or at least show that he is worthy of his first round draft selection.
I don't expect Allen or even Alex Smith (if he has recovered enough, which I am doubtful of) to give Haskins a run for his money. While Rivera has never stated he is sold on Haskins, do not think any other QB will start this season (barring injury.) Washington is committed, at least for this year, to Dwayne Haskins.
 
RB1: Adrian Peterson/Derrius Guice
RB3: Antonio Gibson
It is really a toss-up here whether or not AD or Guice starts, but if history is cyclical then Peterson will get the nod soon enough. I really want Guice to do well, and when he has not been injured he has done fairly well. However, I have little hope that his knees keep holding up, especially considering how much we may need to rely on our run game this year.
Peterson is old, but has shown to be consistent enough when we have a semblance of an offensive line. Our run game is decent, definitely not the worst in the league, but could be close to it. I imagine Gibson may fulfill the role of a receiver back, catching out of the backfield or taking hand-offs. He is bigger than Chris Thompson, but elusive enough that I could see some similarity in usage, especially as a rookie.
 
TE1: Jeremy Sprinkle
TE2: Richard Rogers, Logan Thomas
TE3: Thaddeus Moss
Sprinkle gets the nod here as the number one due to his experience in DC, but as the new regime is in town this is really anyone's game. Stat-wise Rogers and Thomas are relatively consistent, and while Moss has the obvious name recognition he is not even a lock to make the current roster. Sprinkle has always been subpar as a pass catcher, decent as blocker and not much else. Hopefully someone here breaks out or a trade swings through, otherwise this is one of our worst position groups on the roster.
 
WR1: Terry McLaurin
WR2: Steven Sims Jr.
WR3: Antonio Gandy-Golden/Cody Latimer
WR4: Trey Quinn
"McLaurin and then everybody else" is the best way to sum up our receiving unit. Scary Terry is once again our biggest threat and should have just as good if not a better year than 2019 as Haskins' accuracy issues (hopefully) clear up. I Like Sims Jr. as a returner, but his results as a receiver have been inconsistent. Perhaps he could be used similarly to Antonio Gibson, as I see him getting end around hand offs having big success. Gandy-Golden looks promising, but small school talent can be hard to adapt to the NFL. Latimer is a solid depth signing, and I am very unsure if Trey Quinn is worth his roster spot. While I mentioned the Tight End group being poor, this group is equal in that regard. Hopefully our run game can carry once again.
 
LT: Geron Christian Sr.
LG: Wes Schweitzer
C: Chase Roullier
RG: Brandon Scherff
RT: Morgan Moses
Scherff is a bright spot on this mediocre group, but he has had some penalty troubles and the contract situation for him is still unclear as for the future. Geron Christian should hopefully start and have improved since last year, and Schweitzer seems to be a decent signing. I like Rouiller under center for now. Saahdiq Charles and Keith Ismael could both become starters, but I have a feeling Rivera will not want to throw them into the fire early on. Overall I'd categorize this group as "eh?" and hope that our RBs can find enough holes. Haskins has also been improving his mobile game so escapability could be a needed factor with this line.
 
4-3 Defense:
LDE1: Chase Young
LDT: Matt Ioannidis
RDT: Daron Payne
RDE: Montez Sweat
This is by far the best position group on the entire roster. Calling these four the only starters is somewhat a misnomer, as Rivera and Del Rio will be frequently subbing in and out many linemen. Kerrigan and Jon Allen should still have large roles, but these are my choices based on durability and past success. Chase Young should be a stud, and I have heard him having between 10-15 sacks this year. Ioannidis has been a 5th round gem for us, leading the team in sacks last year. Payne and Sweat are both young and have shown some success, and I am hopeful they can both remain at worst starter level linemen. If our line is not getting after QBs like crazy this year, some big questions will need to be raised.
 
WLB: Cole Holcomb, Josh Harvey-Clemons
MLB: Jon Bostic, Thomas Davis
SLB: Ryan Anderson
While not as impressive as the linemen, our LB core is still a solid group. Thomas Davis brings in some leadership to an otherwise young group. Ryan Anderson will finally be playing in his natural position as a 4-3 LB. Both Bostic and Holcomb were impressive last year, though I am hoping their coverage (particularly Holcomb's) could improve. Harvey-Clemons is good for our depth, and solid rotation player. Overall not a flashy group, but should get the job done with the pressure all being up front.
 
CB1: Kendall Fuller
CB2: Ronald Darby, Greg Stroman
CB3: Fabian Moreau, Jimmy Moreland
FS: Sean Davis
SS: Landon Collins
The only unquestionable starters here are Fuller and Collins, and even Collins has been looking down as of recent. My dark-horse candidate is Jimmy Moreland, who impressed in last years preseason before being hidden or unnoticeable during the regular season. Moreau is decent, and Sean Davis is as good as Montae Nicholson ever was (especially considering his legal issues.) The loss of Quinton Dunbar is not sad whatsoever, and while his play was above-average, his robbery skills are very poor. This is the biggest whole in the defense by far, and my guess is that our team will ride or die by this secondary. If the front 7 is doing what it can to apply pressure, there will be some slack here. However, do not be surprised if next years writeup has many different players here.
 
Special Teams:
K: Dustin Hopkins
P: Tress Way
KR: Steven Sims Jr.
PR: Steven Sims Jr.
I want Tress Way to have my children so that they will be blessed with his punting genes. After a couple years of flying under the radar, Way was finally recognized in 2019 with a Pro Bowl and Second-team All-Pro nod. I am upset that Brett Kern got the nod over him for First-team, but the recognition is still appreciated. Hopkins is decent, though he does have a tendency to miss some close kicks (cough vs. Bengals in London cough), but he has provided stability to kicking for years now. Sims emerged last year as our return man, and with him bringing us our first return touchdown since 2015, I'll let him stay. Perhaps Gibson will try returning as well, who knows.
 
 

Schedule Prediction

 
Home against the Eagles: Loss
3 out of the past 4 years Washington has lost its openers, with two of those loses being against the Eagles themselves. Be ready for growing pains with a new name, coaching staff, and supporting cast. This season is not gonna get any easier.
 
Away against the Cardinals: Loss
This game could be a close one, but the Cardinals seem to be on the up with Kyler and Kingsbury. There air raid will be too much for the DC secondary, especially playing in Arizona.
 
Away against the Browns: Win
It's the Browns for god sake. Josh Norman had a game winning pick a couple years back for us against them. Sure, their QB was Cody Kessler, but different year same stories. No more Freddie Kitchens, still the same Browns.
 
Home against the Ravens: Loss
It's the Ravens. Enough said.
 
Home against the Rams: Loss
McVay and Co. should have our number here. Even without Gurley the Rams passing attack should be enough to take us down. The real downfall of our team is the secondary, that should be a pattern to notice. I'd like to believe in a Haskins comeback win here, but who knows.
 
Away against the Giants: Loss
Going into the Meadowlands, I expect a game similar to the late OT thriller of last season, with the Daniel Jones reigning supreme again. Saquon will distract our defense enough that number one receiver... Sterling Shepard will bust us up. Clap man Garett gets us again.
 
Home against the Cowboys: Win
Come on now, it's the Cowboys. Dak is overpaid, blah blah blah. Coming back home and wanting to prove ourselves after a crippling loss last week, I think Simba can pull off a nice home win here.
 
Home against the Giants: Win
Revenge game of the 2019 QBs, and this time Haskins will stay on top. Expect a nice performance from McLaurin, and Chase Young destroying Mr. Jones.
 
Away against the Lions: Win
I'm praying that Chase Young is able to get after Stafford enough that he does not pull a come back against us here, but I expect this game to be close as well. Perhaps Okudah has a pick six, why not.
 
Home against the Bengals: Win
Haskins vs. Burrow. Burrow vs. Young. A bonafide 2019 tank-bowl matchup. I feel we have the upper hand here, but really this game should be a shit show. Should be juicy though.
 
Away against the Cowboys: Loss
Playing in Jerry World is ass, though I'll never forget Colt McCoy leading us to victory on Monday night. No way in hell we go 2-0 against the Cowboys, so mark this down as a loss.
 
Away against the Steelers: Loss
Big Ben is back and can run around in the pocket, meaning even with ample pressure his offense will do better than ours.
 
Away against the 49ers: Loss
It's the Niners, and they mean business. Last year's game was a 9-0 snoozefest for some reason, so I'm guessing this one will be 30-27 shootout. Should be fun to see a potential Trent Williams vs. Chase Young matchup.
 
Home against the Seahawks: Loss
Russell Wilson.
 
Home against the Panthers: Win
Rivera fights his old team and...wins?? Yep, even with Teddy B I feel our defense will keep us afloat. Shaq Thompson is scary, but I am not particularly afraid of Donte Jackson and Eli Apple... Haskins will now probably throw three picks.
 
Away against the Eagles: Win
Ending the season on a positive note, what?? Yes, this one may be a stretch. However, if the Eagles are in the number one spot, my guess is that they would rest their starters against ours. Then again, I have no clue who will win the East so your guess is as best as mine. At any rate, I am ready to 100 percent lockdown Wentz this game, maybe.
 
Final record: 7-9, miss the playoffs, 3rd in NFC East
In my book, this would be an OK first year for Rivera. Coming in with so many green players and an entirely new system can lend itself to mediocrity, but building off of this year is crucial in my book to finally escaping out of the limbo which Washington has played in since Snyder bought the team in 1999.
Draft wise, this should set us up for a pick between...12-15? A solid early/mid-first, probably drafting a receiver, tight end, or secondary player depending on who pans out this year.
 
 

Training Camp Battles to watch

 
  • Wide Receivers:
Like previously mentioned, it is unclear who will be receivers 2 and 3 behind McLaurin. Kelvin Harmon and Steven Sims Jr. emerged as early contenders, but as noted earlier Harmon tore his ACL. Latimer was ok last year on the Giants, but can he beat out Gandy-Golden or Sims Jr. at the top of the chart. I believe players such as Trey Quinn, Cam Sims, Johnathon Johnson and Isaiah Wright are all fighting for a roster space, so seeing them as starters is extremely unlikely. Predicted Winners: Antonio Gandy-Golden and Steven Sims Jr.
 
  • Tight Ends:
This whole roster spot is a toss up. I truly am hoping that Sprinkle gets a kick in the rear to elevate or somebody else steps up, as he was far from a special talent last year. His name makes sense, as he was only able to Sprinkle in a few catches from Haskins and Keenum throughout 2019. Both Richard Rogers and Logan Thomas aren't impressive, so the hope for fans is that Thad Moss or an unknown player such as Marcus Baugh is able to claim the spot. No matter who wins here, the position will be weak. Predicted Winner: Jeremy Sprinkle
 
  • Cornerback:
The battle here lies between all players not named Fuller or Darby. Known Redskins names such as Fabian Moreau, Greg Stroman, Jimmy Moreland, and Danny Johnson are all fighting to be the number 3 corner or remain on the roster in a bench role. I feel at most one of these players will be cut, but overall secondary job security should remain steady for 95 percent of Washington players. Predicted Winner: Fabian Moreau
 
 

Offensive and Defensive Schemes

Offense:
One of the points I've read stressed about Scott Turner is his ability to fit the offense for the QB. As this will be his first full time OC job, it is unclear exactly what schemes he plans to run, but I assume it will be up to date with the fast and mobile trends of stat and data driven offenses today. Perhaps we shall see some similarities to his father, who utilized both Air Coryell and spread techniques in Carolina.
 
Defense: Base 4-3, 4-3 Under
As mentioned before, Del Rio and Rivera are shifting our defense from a 3-4 of the past to a 4-3. This should help our rush game significantly, with players such as Ryan Anderson and Chase Young being able to fit in the scheme quite naturally, For more in depth coverage, be sure to read this Hog's Haven post which will explain it more in depth.  
 
Thanks for reading! Let me know your thoughts down below. Agree, disagree? This was my first year writing, so I hope it was bearable to read!

2020.06.24 01:46 Retil-iH Eisenhower Part One: Biography

Dwight David Eisenhower was born on October 14th, 1890, in Denison, Texas. He was the third child of David and Elizabeth Eisenhower, who would go on to have four more children after Dwight. The Eisenhower's were descendants of German immigrants, and were deeply impoverished. David Eisenhower used to run a store in Hope, Kansas, but moved to Texas in 1889 after it went under. The Eisenhower's would then move to Abilene, Kansas in 1892, with only $24 dollars (Or in today’s money, $683) to their name. In Abilene, David became a factory worker, and eventually a creamer at his brother-in-law's factory, which resulted in the Eisenhower family becoming financially secure. The move was not without tragedy, however. Dwight’s ten-month old brother, Paul, would die of dysphoria when Dwight was four. Dwight, or as he became known to his family, Ike, would still have a happy childhood in Abilene, where he lived until he shipped off for West Point. He would play baseball and American football, go to Abilene High School, and otherwise have a normal childhood for the time. After Dwight graduated High School in 1909, he would join his father and uncle at the creamery where they worked, as well as becoming a part time fireman. Dwight would use the money from his job to pay for his brother Edgar’s college education, with the caveat that they would switch positions every two years, with Dwight going to college while Edgar paid for it. This deal never came to pass, as Eisenhower would instead go to West Point, New York.
While at West Point, Eisenhower put more emphasis on football than military training and discipline. Indeed, at the end of his time at West Point in 1915, he ranked 61st in academics, with his best subject being English. He would graduate from West Point 125th in discipline - out of the 164 graduates in his year. Eisenhower would be commissioned as a Second Lieutenant and sent to San Antonio, Texas. While he was stationed there, he met Mamie Geneva Doud, the daughter of a successful Denver businessman. They were instantly attracted to each other, and by Valentines Day 1916 they were engaged. They would marry in July, instead of their planned date in November due to increasing tensions during World War One. Eisenhower would request to be stationed in the Philippines, an offer the Army declined. Instead, Eisenhower was sent from Army training camp to Army training camp, where he would train soldiers to fight in the trenches of Europe. The Eisenhower's would have their first child in 1917, who they named Doud Dwight Eisenhower. Sadly, Doud would not see his fourth birthday, as he died of Scarlet Fever. Dwight would never talk about what happened with Doud for the rest of his life.. Meanwhile, the war in Europe ended, with Dwight bitter he was never sent to fight. However, the bitterness would reside a little when his second child, John, was born in 1922. Dwight would then spend the next 16 years as a major, where his expertise in tank warfare would be exploited, with meetings with such people as George Patton and Sereno E. Brett. Ironically, Eisenhower would be threatened with a court martial for putting forward an idea for a lightning fast offensive using tanks: something Adolf Hitler would famously utilize more than a decade later. Another example of a job was for Eisenhower to move a military convoy from Washington D.C. to Los Angeles. The extremely slow speed of the convoy resulted in Eisenhower's massive infrastructure improvement plan during his presidency.
From 1922-1924, Eisenhower would be stationed in the Panama Canal Zone, where he would become a good friend of his superior officer: Brigadier General Fox Conner. This friendship would then result in Eisenhower being accepted at Command and General Staff School in Fort Leavenworth, Texas. Eisenhower would graduate first out of 275 students, and became an aide to General Douglas McArthur. Eisenhower was promoted to colonel in 1941, and would become a general later that year after Chief of Staff George Marshall noted how well Eisenhower directed wargames of over 500,000 troops. Marshall appointed Eisenhower to the army's war plans division, where he would become a Major General in 1942. Eisenhower would see combat the first time at Operation Torch, the successful Allied invasion of Northern Africa. Eisenhower helped plan the campaign, and would lead US troops during it. Eisenhower would then be given control over all Allied forces in Africa, which culminated in the allied invasion of Italy in 1943. This invasion would prove to be a major testing ground for Eisenhower, as he had to deal with not only the Italian and Germany forces opposing him, but insubordinate subordinates, like General Patton. However, Eisenhower's victory in Italy resulted in him becoming the Supreme Allied Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force, and he was sent to Britain in order to plan and execute D-Day. D-Day was a costly success, and by May 1945 Nazi Germany had been crushed between the Allies and the Soviet Union. Eisenhower was appointed military governor of American-Occupied Germany, where he spread photos and newsreels of the Holocaust and purged many Nazis in a process known as De-Nazification. He was then sent back to the US as Army General Staff, and focused on de-mobilizing the armed forces.
After the war, Eisenhower was all for cooperation with the Soviets - this changed as the Cold War heated up, and he started to believe in the Truman Doctrine of containment. Eisenhower declined to run for either parties nomination in 1948, even though Harry Truman wanted him as either Vice President or President. After this, Eisenhower became a Republican, and afterwards became president of Columbia University, in New York City. Here he published his memoirs, and settled into retirement- until a new job offer landed on his doorstep: leadership of the new North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Soon afterwards, he took an extended leave from Columbia University in order to become Supreme Commander of N.A.T.O. As Supreme Commander, Eisenhower popularized NATO in both the United States and Europe: his efforts were successful, and NATO became a permanent military power in the world. But his job as NATO Supreme Commander was not meant to last. In 1952, after a long time refusing to get into politics, Eisenhower was eventually convinced by the massive popular support he had to run for president. Eisenhower was the popular candidate to win, as he was able to unite his party by nominating a young, conservative, anti-communist vice president named Richard Nixon. Running on his popularity, as well as the unpopular nature of the Democratic Party in 1952 resulted in a landslide of 442 electoral votes to 89 electoral votes, and an almost 11% popular vote victory. Eisenhower would run again, and win in 1956 by an even bigger landslide of 457 electoral votes to 73 electoral votes, as well as a 15% popular vote victory. Eisenhower would endorse Richard Nixon in 1960, who lost by a very narrow margin to John F. Kennedy. Eisenhower would spend the rest of his life lobbying for Republican candidates, before dying in 1969.

2020.06.06 22:53 pennylanebarbershop Here's what I think happened on 11/22/1963

For the past 5 years, I have studied, analyzed, and thought about the JFK assassination while sadly conceding that I might never be able to determine what really happened. So much of the evidence steered me in opposite directions, and I could never develop a scenario that didn’t conflict fatally with what appeared to be solidly established facts. That is, until now. Finally, I believe I have it figured out.
This change occurred mainly for two reasons- I put myself in the role of an assassination planner and secondly I came to a conclusion that much of the eyewitness testimony was flawed, itself for two reasons- simple mistaken observations/memory and, more importantly, the likelihood that many witnesses made up stories for various reasons- to feel important, to make money, to gain fame, just for fun, etc.
It became clear to me that having Lee Oswald or another person shooting from an open floor of the Texas School Book Depository (TSBD) would not have been an element of a competently-planned assassination plot. Nor for that matter using a Mannlicher-Carcano (MC) rifle, one of least reliable weapons available at that time.
But first, let’s consider the folly of planting an assassin on the 6th floor of the TSBD. This was an open floor accessible to many of the workers employed there. At any moment, some of these workers could have accessed this floor, perhaps to get a better view of the motorcade. At the time of the shooting, three of these employees were at a 5th floor window, directly beneath the sniper’s nest. They easily could have decided to go up one floor to get a better view, making it virtually impossible for the gunman to take a shot, unless he was willing to give himself up on the spot.
The cheap mail-order MC rifle would have been a poor choice to take (especially) the first shot, because the first shot would likely be the only one with the presidential limousine moving at a relatively slow speed. It would have been assumed that the limo driver would accelerate rapidly after initially hearing gunfire. Any subsequent shots would have been more difficult with the limo traveling faster. (That this speed change did not occur in the actual scenario could not have been foreseen).
Even if a professional assassin had been hired to shoot from the TSBD, he would have had to use the MC rifle so that the forensics would line up to support Oswald as the patsy. This is highly problematic and largely defeats the purpose of using a skillful assassin, but it is even worse when you consider the extreme difficulty of getting this person into and out of the building without being seen. Further, Oswald would have needed to hide to avoid being seen too soon after the shooting and thereby receiving an unwanted alibi. Anyone seeing him within about 75 seconds of the shooting would have destroyed the plot. The bottom line, though, is that a professional sniper would not have been positioned within the accessible working space of an open place of business. All it would have taken is for one of the TSBD employees to have seen the assassin exiting the sniper’s nest with a rifle to completely destroy the Oswald-as-patsy scheme. For these reasons, I have concluded with near certainty that Oswald fired the MC rifle from the 6th floor of the TSBD.
Having reviewed most of the eyewitness testimonies, it is impressive that over 75% of them reported hearing three shots, a few heard 4 or more. Aside from the three shots fired from the TSBD and possible echoes, there is one other source of sound that might have been mistakenly interpreted as a gunshot- the sound of the bullet cracking the skull of JFK. With the bullet traveling twice the speed of sound, bystanders near the limo at the location of the head shot would have heard the skull crack a fraction of a second before hearing the rifle blast. This would have sounded like two shots fired in rapid succession, which is consistent with the testimony of several witnesses, including some of those riding in the limousine. To people standing on the south side of Elm St. and near the head shot location as well as motorcycle cops on the left side of the limo, the skull explosion would have sounded like a shot coming from the direction of the grassy knoll. This is perhaps the reason for the subsequent rush of people up the slope of the knoll.
The most trustworthy eyewitness in my estimation is Karen Westbrook Scranton. She was located near the Stemmons Freeway sign, an ideal vantage point.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJghyNiPOoU&t=2096s
She heard three shots, with the first two close together, followed by a pause, and then a third. She reported that all of the shots came from the same place. Her account supports my theory of when each shot was fired.
Based on an extensive review of the Zapruder film, I have placed the three shots at Z185, Z232, and Z313. With each frame representing 1/18.3 seconds, there were about 2.5 seconds between the first two shots and about 4.5 seconds between the second and third shot. The timing of the second two shots was determined by analyzing Zapruder frames, whereas the time of the first shot was largely based on the reaction of Rosemary Willis, the little girl who can be seen running alongside the limo. She suddenly stops and looks over her right shoulder, a movement she later stated was in response to hearing a loud sound. The MC rifle could be fired every 2.3 seconds according to tests performed by the Warren Commission. This implies that Oswald fired quickly after the first shot, but paused after the second, either to take better aim or because he had trouble operating the bolt action.
The first shot was taken before the limo cleared an oak tree from the point of view of the sniper’s nest, but it was in an area of a gap in the foliage, offering a fairly good view. Oswald probably realized that time was running out and that he needed to get a shot off quickly even though it was not a totally clear view. This shot entered Kennedy’s back a few inches below the neckline and slightly right of center. It then ranged on a slightly upward path through the lower part of his neck and emerged just below the Adam’s apple, very slightly to the left side. Its energy was mostly spent at this time and was stopped from going any further by the knot of Kennedy’s necktie. This explains why this exit wound appeared more like an entry- it was a low velocity exit. This bullet fell out within the limo or else on the operating table in Trauma Room #1 at Parkland Hospital. It was picked up by someone who later placed it on a stretcher (that was not used by Kennedy or Connally). This became the famous ‘magic bullet’ CE 399. The relatively un-tumultuous path of this bullet explains its near pristine condition. By Z195 Kennedy is showing signs of being hit as his right elbow which was previously resting on the door frame as he was waving elevates to the level of his eyes. Later, by Z225 he reacts by raising both arms to the same level. Meanwhile Governor Connally is clearly not hit as late as Z230.
The second shot was at Z232. Oswald hurried this shot to almost the fastest he could get it off and he missed the president by about 6 inches. The bullet entered Connally’s back, broke a rib, and exited through his chest. By this point the bullet was still intact but was structurally damaged. It then hit his wrist and broke into at least three parts. One part entered his thigh, another hit the windshield of the limo, and a third exited the limo and landed near a manhole cover on the south side of the street (photos show a bystander picking up this fragment). The thigh and windshield fragments were retrieved and became Commission exhibits, though the fragment that landed near the manhole cover was not.
The third and final shot was taken at Z313 (to be precise, this shot left the rifle at Z311 because it took about 1/9 of a second for the bullet to reach the president). This bullet exploded Kennedy’s skull and dug out a good portion of the right lateral brain. A fragment of this bullet exited the limo and hit a curb on Main St. and ricocheted to the cheek of James Tague, a bystander. Other fragments composing most of the constituents of this bullet also exited the limo but were never recovered.
These three were the only shots fired in Dealy Plaza. I will now address the controversy surrounding a possible shot fired from the Grassy Knoll.
There has been much speculation that a shot was fired from the Grassy Knoll, most often credited to have occurred at Z313, the time of the head shot. The evidences supporting this theory are:
  1. Kennedy’s head and body lurched back and to the left after the head shot.
  2. A puff of smoke was observed by some witnesses in the area of the knoll.
  3. A motorcycle cop left and rear of the limo was hit with brain and blood matter with enough force to have him conclude that he might have been hit also.
  4. Acoustic analysis of a dictabelt recording suggested the presence of a shooter on the knoll.
  5. Lee Bowers, from the vantage point of a railroad tower observed people standing behind the fence on the knoll at the time of shooting.
  6. Ed Hoffman, a witness standing on Stemmons Freeway reported seeing a gunman running alongside the fence and handing off his weapon to a railroad employee before returning to his previous location.
  7. A police officer and then scores of bystanders stormed the knoll after the shooting, believing that a shot had come from there.
  8. A photo taken by Mary Moorman at the moment of the head shot was analyzed by photographic expert Jack White and was claimed to reveal the presence of a gunman dressed in a police uniform aiming a rifle at the president and a muzzle blast was also shown.
  9. Ralph Yarborough and perhaps others in the motorcade reported the smell of gunpowder as they rode along Elm St. near the point where Kennedy was hit in the head.
  10. A policeman reported that he challenged a person behind the knoll who displayed a Secret Service badge, whereas it was known that no Secret Service agent was in the area.
  11. An eyewitness reported that the gunman in the 6th floor window before the shooting kept looking to his right in the direction of the knoll, perhaps to see if the assassin was in place at that location.
  12. Doctors at Parkland hospital reported a large would in the back of the president’s head indicating a shot from the front.
Before tackling each of these points, it is best to consider some aspects related to a potential assassination plot and the reasons why placing an assassin on the Grassy Knoll would have been poor strategy.
The area behind the fence on the Grassy Knoll was a public parking lot. There was no way to ensure that a car would not pull up and park within several feet of the assassin at the exact moment that he was taking his shot at the president. A man stationed in a railroad tower a few hundred feet away would have a direct and unobstructed view of the assassin’s activities. At the point where an assassin would have a good shot from this location, the motorcade would have been essentially over, with the limo heading downhill and preparing to access the entrance ramp to Stemmons Freeway. It would have been assumed that the limo would be traveling well above the parade speed of 15 mph, more likely 25-30 mph at this point, making it very difficult to take an accurate shot at a target moving rapidly across the field of vision. In fact, it would have made it just as likely that the assassin would hit the First Lady instead. (The fact that the limo actually slowed down below the nominal parade speed at this point could not have been assumed by assassination planners. This was a combination of two things- the driver William Greer initially had a delayed response to the shooting and then hit the brakes to slow down so that S.S. Officer Clint Hill, who he must have seen in the rearview mirror running behind the limo, could climb aboard).
Speaking of the First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy, there is another reason to conclude that the Texas trip would have been taken off the list for an assassination attempt. Normally Kennedy traveled alone, and it is likely, based on intelligence, that plots to kill him were in place during his recent trips to Chicago and Miami, where motorcades were cancelled for that reason. There might have been a reluctance to kill Kennedy while he was sitting next to his wife, for basic humanitarian reasons and the fear that Jackie would be killed as well, leaving the children without parents. (Yes, it’s hard to imagine assassination plotters thinking this way, but it is certainly possible).
So, beginning with solid reasons for concluding that a competent assassination plot would not have placed an assassin on the Grassy Knoll, it will take some extraordinary evidence to conclude that a shooter was indeed at that location. It is my opinion that none of the 12 points above are sufficient to make that conclusion. Here I address them all:
(1) It is true that Kennedy lurched back and to the left following the head shot. An analysis of Z312 and Z313 indicated his head momentarily moves forward. This may have been caused by a bullet strike or possibly due to the limo decelerating as the driver (Greer) was riding the brakes in order to allow S.S. agent Clint Hill to board the limo. Immediately after this, Kennedy’s moves dramatically in a direction away from the Grassy Knoll. From a physics perspective a bullet striking Kennedy’s head would cause only a small displacement, rocking his head around the neck pivot point, not driving his entire body back and leftward as observed. The bullet simply could not have carried that much momentum. It is much more likely that this was a neuro-muscular spasm caused by the extensive brain damage which occurred in the area of motor-muscular brain tissue in the right lateral hemisphere. Based on this, I conclude that the movement of Kennedy after the head shot does not require a shot from the Grassy Knoll.
(2) A puff of smoke was observed by some. This seems to be a red herring because an assassin’s rifle in 1963 would not produce smoke. There is no report of smoke emanating from the 6th floor window rifle and it seems unlikely that smoke would be observed from any modern weapon of its time, unlike weapons used during the Civil War, for example. It is possible that the reports of smoke were fabricated by some witnesses to bolster their impression of a knoll shooter.
(3) The motorcycle cop (Bobby Hargis) was characterized in some assassination books as being hit so hard with blood and brain matter that he felt he had been hit as well with a bullet. This, I found out by examining his testimony, was an exaggeration of what he testified. Yes, he was hit by some of this material but it was not so dramatic as to make him think that he was struck. The fact that he thought a shot came from the knoll was likely because the sound of the bullet hitting Kennedy’s skull was very loud and it would have seemed to have come from the direction of the knoll.
(4) The acoustic evidence has never been validated to have represented the time of the shooting and much evidence suggests that it was actually recording events after the shooting had taken place. Further, the Moorman photo clearly shows no shooter at the corner of the fence where the acoustic analysts placed the shooter.
(5) and (6) I take these together because they both represent eyewitness testimony from persons who had a view of the back side of the fence on the Grassy Knoll. Their testimonies conflict fatally. Hoffman reported seeing the gunman running west along the fence line and handing his weapon to a person dressed in a railroad worker’s uniform, who then broke down the weapon and placed it in carrying case. The assassin the brushed himself off and calmly walks back eastward along the fence line. Bowers, located in the railroad tower, reported none of this, but if it had happened, he could not have missed it. This totally discredits the Hoffman account. Bowers testimony was ingeniously massaged by several assassination authors to make it seem like he saw something suspicious, but actually he did not. He reported seeing two men standing behind the fence but that they were in line with the throat of the overpass, not anywhere near where anyone has placed the knoll shooter. Bowers’ testimony is perhaps the most powerful one suggesting that there was no shooter behind the fence because he could not have missed such an event had it happened.
(7) As discussed earlier the sharp and very loud sound of the bullet cracking the skull of the president would have been heard by the bystanders and for those located south of the limo, it would have seemed to have come from the direction of the knoll. This sound would have preceded the sound from the rifle by a fraction of a second, and so they would have seemed like separate shots.
(8) The Moorman photo did not have enough resolution for Jack White to have made his conclusion of a shooter and muzzle blast as well as an accompanying accomplice. The location of the ‘badge man’ was also ridiculously placed and would have been in full view of several bystanders, including Abraham Zapruder. I consider the Moorman photo to be counter-evidence for a knoll shooter because it eliminates the area of the fence line that would have been the optimal placement for the shooter.
(9) This seems to go along with puff of smoke, in that gunpowder would not have been smelled even within a few feet of the rifle, much less 45 feet away on a windy day. This cannot be anything more than a mistaken impression.
10) It is well established that there was an FBI special agent who walked to the area behind the knoll and who was challenged by a policeman. He showed his badge. It is likely that this was later mistakenly referred to as a Secret Service badge.
11) The 6th floor gunman was observed by witness Howard Brennan to have been repeatedly peering down to his right in the direction of the grassy knoll before the shooting. Perhaps to see if the knoll shooter was in place, but more likely he was sighting his points along Elm St. where he intended to take his shots.
12) This is the hardest point to refute and I remain uncertain how to do it. The Parkland doctors all agreed on the location of the head wound, being posterior and in the area of the cerebellum. But mysteriously, when they were asked to observe the autopsy photos, they all indicated that they looked legitimate. The Zapruder film is consistent with the autopsy photos showing the location of the wound as being mostly lateral. With some hesitation, I have concluded that the way Kennedy was placed on the table in Trauma Room #1 at Parkland Hospital, combined with the high stress situation, a priority placed on saving the president versus examining his wounds, and the way his hair was drenched and matted down in blood and brain matter, the doctors experienced a bit of an optical illusion as to where the head wound was located. I cannot believe that the Zapruder film was changed that expertly and that quickly as to mask the true position of the wound, though I realize some people have hypothesized this. So, in conclusion, I have to rely on the autopsy photos, the Zapruder film, and the doctors (hopefully not pressured) acquiescence to these photos to conclude that the president’s head wound was consistent with a shot from the TSBD and inconsistent with a knoll shot.
One additional point should be made- the groundskeeper for Dealy Plaza, Emitt Hudson, was positioned on the steps leading up to the fence. A Grassy Knoll shot would have occurred about 15 feet directly behind him and the bullet would have come close to hitting him. Yet, his testimony does not suggest that he experienced anything like what that suggests. This, by itself, comes very close to ruling out a shooter behind the fence.
Based on all of the above, I have concluded that an assassin was not located on the Grassy Knoll.
I will now address some of the issues that followed the shooting. Oswald had plenty of time to place his rifle on the floor next to the stairs on the 6th floor and walk down four flights to the second floor lunchroom before being accosted by a police officer and the building manager about 75 seconds after the final shot. The fact that he was not winded is not too surprising considering the little effort needed to descend stairs and his physical condition.
I believe the Warren Commission was correct in all of his subsequent movements, including taking a short bus trip, a taxi ride, a quick stop at his boarding house to fetch his pistol, shooting Officer J.D. Tippet at 10th and Patton, entering the Texas theater without paying ,and being arrested there.
Before I continue I will address the controversy about whether Oswald shot Tippet. One key piece of evidence in my mind is that Oswald attempted to shoot Officer Nick McDonald during his arrest in the theater and was stopped from doing so only by the skillful effort of another officer. This, to me, indicates his willingness to shoot police officers in a devil-may-care way, indicating a likely predilection to shoot Tippet as well. Eyewitness testimony is all over the map on who shot Tippet, but there is an important marker on the path from the Tippet scene to the theater where Oswald shed his jacket. This places Oswald in the time and place of the shooting. Also, Johnny Brewer, the shopkeeper who noticed Oswald’s guilty behavior on Jefferson St., followed him to the theater, and pointed him out to police- which backtracking places Oswald in the correct time and place to have killed Tippet.
There is evidence that another person entered the theater around 1 pm, before the Tippet shooting at around 1:12 pm, and went to the balcony of the theater. This is likely the person who was arrested and taken out the back of the theater. I believe that this person was not part of any conspiracy.
There has been much speculation that Tippet was part of the plot and that he was assigned to either kill Oswald or to take him to Redbird Airport for a plane trip out of the country. I have concluded that Tippet was not part of any conspiracy. His erratic movement in the moments leading up to his death are a combination of two things- he was involved in some controversy unrelated to the assassination that had him outside of his assigned district. Also, he was aware by police radio that the president had been shot and so would have been in suspense as to how he should respond, whether he would be called into Dealy Plaza or elsewhere.
There were two descriptions of the suspect broadcast on police radio prior to Tippet stopping Oswald at 10th and Patton. Thus, it is not surprising, given Oswald’s perhaps erratic movements (possibly changing walking directions after seeing Tippet) combined with his appearance matching the description, that Tippet would question Oswald. The forensics of Tippet’s bullet wounds was enough of a match to Oswald’s pistol to make me fairly sure that Oswald’s pistol was used in the shooting.
For all of these reasons I have concluded that Oswald shot Tippet. For the day, this makes Oswald taking 7 shots, the 1st and 3rd hitting Kennedy, the 2nd hitting Connally, and final 4 hitting Tippet, plus an attempted shot at Officer McDonald in the theater at the time of his arrest.
I realize that there is an issue related to Oswald arriving at 10th and Patton on time to kill Tippet. Oswald’s rooming house landlady testified that Oswald entered the house around 1:00 pm and left shortly thereafter, walking across the street to the bus stop located there. This would have made it nearly impossible for Oswald to have arrived at the Tippet scene one mile away at 1:12 pm without him running to get there. What I think likely happened is that Oswald grew impatient waiting for a bus to come by, so he thumbed a ride that took him only so far as to be in the vicinity of 10th and Patton. It might seem strange that the person who gave Oswald a ride would not have alerted authorities, but perhaps he or she did not want to get involved for their personal or legal safety. Nevertheless, this hitchhike theory is a way to explain Oswald’s on-time appearance at the Tippet shooting location.
It might seem strange that Tippet located Oswald so quickly following his arrival in Oak Cliff and for some time I considered this evidential of his involvement. But since then I learned that he was responding to a street disturbance very nearby in the moments prior to his murder. This coincidence may explain the unlikely meeting of the two.
One thing that must be discussed is a series of events preceding the assassination that appear to have been efforts to set up Oswald as a patsy. This included an incident at a shooting range and at a car dealership. The shooting range is very likely a fabrication or it involved somebody else because the dates do not match up with Oswald’s known movements or the fact that his rifle was stored in Ruth Paine’s garage for months prior to him retrieving it the night before the assassination. The car dealership story is also very likely a made-up story based on the face of its farcical elements.
However, there is one pre-assassination story that was determined by researchers and well as government officials to have been legitimate- the meeting at Silvia Odio’s apartment. It is probably true that Oswald was involved in both CIA activities and anti- and/or pro-Castro groups. This would not in itself preclude him from killing the president on his own initiative.
The main reason that I reject the Oswald-grooming theory as a prelude to the assassination is that it would have involved a very elaborate effort to make Oswald look guilty when all that was really needed was for him to bring his rifle to the TSBD and for the forensics to confirm that his rifle was used. Why would you need to do anything extra to prove his guilt in the shooting and to establish him as a patsy? Another point is that it would seem ridiculous to set the scene for Oswald to be guilty whereas the actual shooting was done in a manner that had a very low probability of success. As mentioned earlier, anyone could have accessed the 6th floor right before the motorcade appeared, or the motorcade could have been on time instead of 5 minutes late giving less time for the shooter to get set up, or Bonnie Ray Williams could have remained on the 6th floor after eating his chicken lunch instead of departing 15 minutes before the shooting for the 5th floor. In other words, the chance that Oswald would even get off a single shot was very low to merit going through all of the trouble to unnecessarily establish his guilt by staging pre-assassination tableaus.
Another point should be made concerning the method Oswald used to get his rifle into the TSBD. He relied on a 19 year-old co-worker to give him a ride home on the night before the assassination and to get him back to work the next day. Anything could have gone wrong with this plan. Also, retrieving his rifle from Ruth Paine’s garage was no sure-fire success. Ruth could have gone to the garage while Oswald was breaking it down and placing it into the bag. Being a smart woman, she could have put 2 and 2 together and realized that Oswald had made an un-customary trip to her house on a Thursday night, that he was retrieving his rifle to take to the TSBD, that Kennedy would be in a motorcade passing the TSBD, and that Oswald had previously taken a shot at General Walker 7 months earlier and learned from Marina that he had threatened to shoot Nixon. Ruth knew the TSBD building manager and would have called him and told him to confiscate the rifle upon Oswald’s arrival, killing the plot.
As an aside, some have theorized that Ruth Paine was involved and got Oswald the job at the TSBD for the purpose of him participating in the assassination. This is ridiculous. The motorcade route was not published at that time and also Oswald and another new employee started on the same day and it was only by coincidence that Oswald was assigned to work in the TSBD whereas the other employee was assigned to the annex building four blocks to the North. It is a quirk of history that if instead Oswald had been sent to the annex building the assassination would not have taken place.
The final point is a look at history and how almost all shootings of this nature end up being the work of a single shooter acting alone. We have seen this play out in countless scenarios where initially it is theorized that there might have been multiple shooters, but in the final analysis, it comes down to just one. Columbine H.S. being one of the few exceptions.
Oswald, his rifle, and his shooting location were not elements of anything approaching a competent assassination plan. The evidence is not overwhelming, but it is sufficient for me to conclude that Oswald acted alone on November 22, 1963. This does not mean that he was not influenced in some way to kill Kennedy nor that he didn’t tell anyone that he was going to do it. But the bulk of the evidence suggests that he was inclined to perform a political assassination, as indicated by his attempt on the life General Walker in April of 1963 and his threatened assassination of Richard Nixon as reported by his wife, Marina.
My conclusion based on the preponderance of the evidence is that Oswald acted alone in killing Kennedy and Tippet and in wounding Connally. Other plots to kill Kennedy were in play but Dallas, Houston, Austin, Fort Worth, and San Antonio were eliminated from consideration perhaps due to the First Lady accompanying the president. Oswald may have been aware of these other plots but decided to take matters into his own hands, and he succeeded against all odds**.**

2020.05.27 15:20 assessment_bot [ Non-Fatal ] [ 05/08/2020 ] Beech 1900, San Antonio/ TX

On May 8, 2020, about 2050 central daylight time, a Beechcraft 1900C, N31704, sustained substantial damage when it was involved in an accident near San Antonio, Texas. The airline transport pilot sustained no injury. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 135 cargo flight, as Ameriflight 1829.
The operator reported that the flight departed the Corpus Christi International Airport (CRP), Corpus Christi, Texas, at 2004 with 631 lbs of cargo and a fuel load of 2,800 lbs. During the initial climb, the captain selected the landing gear handle to the UP position to retract the landing gear. The attempt was unsuccessful, and the captain attempted to cycle the landing gear handle once more yielding the same result. Following the second unsuccessful gear retraction, the captain elected to leave the landing gear handle in the DOWN position and continued to the San Antonio International Airport (SAT), San Antonio, Texas, where more services would be available if needed. The airplane climbed to 8,000 ft mean sea level and cruised below the maximum landing gear extended speed (VLE).
As the captain began to prepare for arrival at SAT, he retrieved the arrival automatic terminal information service (ATIS). The ATIS was reporting gusting winds out of the north, clear skies, and runway 4 as the active arrival runway. The captain began the descent toward the airport and air traffic control cleared the airplane for the visual approach to runway 4. The pilot entered a dogleg right base and completed the before landing checklist noting three green lights and no red lights, which indicated the landing gear was down, locked, and safe for landing.
The airplane touched down around the aiming point marker on runway 4. As the main landing gear touched down on the dry concrete, the left main landing gear collapsed, the red unsafe light in the landing gear handle illuminated, and was followed by an aural horn indicating the landing gear was now unlocked and unsafe for landing. Simultaneously, the airplane began to dip toward the left, causing the left wing tip to contact the runway. The impact on the airplane resulted in the airplane's momentum taking the airplane from the runway centerline off the runway and into the grass area several thousand ft from the runway 4 threshold. Once the airplane came to a complete stop, the captain shutdown all power to the airplane and exited through the main entry air stairs.
The airplane sustained substantial damage to the left wing as shown in figure 1.
A postaccident damage assessment by the operator revealed that the left main landing gear brace was fractured as shown in figure 2.
The operator reported that the airplane's weight at the time of the accident was 14,381 lbs (the airplane's maximum gross weight is 17,120 lbs).

2020.05.04 01:38 EleventhTry [EVENT] A Digital Future

Federal Communications Commission

445 12th Street SW, Washington, D.C.
 
Although the United States is home to several, if not most of the world's largest information corporations and Americans being one of the most avid users in the world of the internet, we lack behind severely among other OCED nations in several sectors. Notably, millions of Americans lack access to high-speed internet, and in some places, internet at all. As the arrival of globalization and the dominance of the information-age unravels, there is an ever increasing need for Americans to be online. A report by the Federal Communications Commission in 2022 shows that roughly 92.8% of all Americans are connected to the internet, although there are several million in this number who do not have access to high-speed internet. Although having updated the definition of broadband in 2015, the Federal Communications Commission has again called for a review of this definition among other existing policies on the books. New Chairman Jessica Rosenworcel to many is a breath of fresh air to several critics of the FCC, as well as to economic analysts, information companies, and middle-class Americans. However, her bold stances do render her as a threat to many internet providers not seeking the best interests of Americans.
 

5G

  Bringing to the city of Seattle a limited 5G commercial network was CenturyLink which had started plans for an implementation of this in 2018. Although, only about 1/3rd of the city is covered by the network, with CenturyLink promising to get the rest of the city covered by the end of 2024. The success of this large leap has showed the possibility of spreading further 5G networks into larger American cities, but that will have to wait for the future. Although, CenturyLink is not alone in the pursuit of 5G networks, as AT&T, Verizon, and Frontier Communications have promised the arrival of a 5G network in the city's with their HQ. All 4 companies have announced plans towards implementing national 5G coverage by 2036 with 3/5ths of the United States to be fully covered with 5G access by 2030.
 

Fiber

  Although hopes were cut for many when Google announced it would no longer expand Google Fibre, this has been recently reversed. CEO of Google Inc. Sundar Pichai announced after the arrival of the 5G network in Seattle that this would be reversed, as Google put out invitations across the country to several metropolitan areas to deploy the fiber. Google has begun deployment of cable in these cities, which will fully connect their respective metropolitan areas by 2026.
 
  • Dallas-Fort Worth, TX
  • San Jose, CA
  • Palo Alto, CA
  • San Antonio, TX
  • San Diego, CA
  • Seattle, WA
  • Portland, OR
  • Houston, TX
  • Boston, MA
  • Nashville, TN
  • Atlanta, GA
  • Las Vegas, NV
  • Waco, TX
  • Toledo, OH
  • Washington, District of Columbia + New Columbia
  • Raleigh, NC
  • Lincoln, NE
  • Miami, FL
  • Des Moines, IA
  • Tallahassee, FL
 
This massive expansion will launch Google into being a much larger Internet Service Provider across the United States. Similarly, AT&T has announced their intentions to make further strides in the deployment of cable, planning to lay around 1,440 cumulative miles of fiber in the states of Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Ohio, Arkansas, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. This ambitious plan to bring cable has been funded by both AT&T and the cities that it will run through and connect. Existing plans to complete this put 2029 as the end date. Helping to combat the costs, all 12 of the recently mentioned states will be issuing grants for the deployment of the fiber cable, at a total cost of $19 billion. This is to be received from newly imposed state taxes on sodas and alcohol, and a newly leveraged nation-wide federal tax rate for cigarettes to be listed:
 
  • Helping to fund this package, the federal tax rate for cigarettes will be raised from $1.01 per pack to $1.42 per pack.
  • Tennessee will raise its tax on beer from $1.17 per gallon to $1.32 per gallon.
  • West Virginia and Ohio will raise its tax on beer from $0.18 per gallon to $0.74 per gallon
  • Wisconsin and Missouri will raise its tax on beer from $0.06 per gallon to $0.64 per gallon.
  • Michigan will raise its tax on beer from $0.20 per gallon to $0.85 per gallon.
  • Indiana will raise its tax on beer from $0.12 per gallon to $0.68 per gallon. State-wide institution of a one-cent-per-ounce soda tax.
  • Pennsylvania will raise its tax on beer from $0.08 per gallon to $0.72 per gallon.
  • Arkansas will raise its tax on beer from $0.34 per gallon to $.0.99 per gallon. State-wide institution of a one-cent-per-ounce soda tax.
  • Illinois will raise its tax on beer from $0.23 per gallon to $0.89 per gallon. State-wide institution of a one-cent-per-ounce soda tax.
  • Kentucky will raise its tax on beer from $0.78 per gallon to $1.24 per gallon. State-wide institution of a one-cent-per-ounce soda tax.
  • Ohio will raise its tax on beer from $0.18 per gallon to $0.68 per gallon. State-wide institution of a one-cent-per-ounce soda tax.
  • Iowa will raise its tax on beer from $0.19 per gallon to $0.70 per gallon. State-wide institution of a one-cent-per-ounce soda tax.

Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission Jessica Rosenworcel publicly announced changes to existing guidelines following a 2021 Broadband Progress Report. These changes will move existing required download speeds for classification as broadband from downloads speeds of 25 Mbps and upload speeds of 3 Mbps to download speeds of 40 Mbps and upload speeds to 5 Mbps. Rules regarding net neutrality will be congressionally set to as they were in the Open Internet Order back in 2010 following an act proposed by Representative Kennedy III, (D-MA)

2020.04.29 21:30 Ar-Q-bid Ray of Good News

Here's some good news in light of all the gloomy stuff we usually see: New York City is speeding up the construction of bike lanes and bus lanes in an attempt to cut back on car usage.
I know that it's just one city, but it's a very large city (with a population greater than many countries) which means that it's got a rather large carbon footprint.
Promoting more public transport and bicycles would reduce per capita fuel consumption.
Bikes cause less wear and tear on the road than cars so in the long run this means less energy expended to maintain roads.
The impacts on improving people's health by encouraging more cycling and less driving also is great for the healthcare system in the USA.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/28/nyregion/nyc-biking-deaths-lanes.html?auth=link-dismiss-google1tap

After Spike in Deaths, New York to Get 250 Miles of Protected Bike Lanes

The city will build the lanes as part of a $1.7 billion street safety plan to be adopted by Mayor Bill de Blasio and the City Council.
Riding a bicycle in New York City is often a harrowing journey across a patchwork of bike lanes that leave cyclists vulnerable to cars. The dangers came into focus this year after 25 cyclists were killed on city streets — the highest toll in two decades.
Now Mayor Bill de Blasio and the City Council have agreed on a $1.7 billion plan that would sharply expand the number of protected bike lanes as part of a sweeping effort to transform the city’s streetscape and make it less perilous for bikers.
Its chief proponent, Corey Johnson, the City Council speaker, calls it nothing less than an effort to “break the car culture.’’
Such ambitions show how far New York has come since around 2007 when the city, under Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, started aggressively taking away space for cars by rolling out bike lanes and pedestrian plazas.
Under pressure from the City Council, the city would be required to build 250 miles of protected bike lanes in the coming years, along with a dizzying list of other street upgrades that safety advocates have long called for. The city now has about 1,250 miles of bike lanes, including 126 miles on city streets that are protected, meaning that a barrier separates the lanes from vehicles.
“New Yorkers know that the way we get around our city right now makes no sense,” said Mr. Johnson, who is expected to run for mayor in 2021. “Our streets have been really poorly planned in a piecemeal fashion.”
The cyclist deaths have prompted an outpouring of sadness and outrage. The victims have included a 10-year-old boy killed by an unlicensed driver steps from his home and a 52-year-old man who was hit out of nowhere by a careening car that was captured in a horrifying video.
Cities like Los Angeles and Washington are expanding their bike networks, but New York’s plans are far more expansive. San Diego plans to build 70 miles of new bike lanes, while Cambridge, Mass., set rules this year to add protected lanes on all rebuilt roads. Copenhagen is the international model for bike infrastructure, with about 250 miles of protected bike lanes.
The bike lanes proposed in New York are a key part of Mr. Johnson’s so-called Streets Master Plan, a bill that is expected to be approved by the City Council on Wednesday. Mr. de Blasio’s administration had expressed concerns about the bill, but the mayor is now on board and says he will sign it.
“We know redesigning New York City’s streets will help us end tragic, preventable traffic deaths,” Will Baskin-Gerwitz, a mayoral spokesman, said in a statement. “Mayor de Blasio and his team have worked hard with the Council to hone ambitious new goals that will save lives.”
The plan could face many challenges. Bike lanes have often faced fierce opposition, including lawsuits and resistance from community boards that balk at having parking spaces removed and worry about the impact on local residents and businesses. The city’s Department of Transportation would also have to move quickly to add workers and equipment to carry out so many construction projects at once.
The bill calls for the Transportation Department to release a plan every five years to make streets safer and to prioritize public transit, starting in December 2021. The city must hit targets every year, including building 150 miles of bus lanes that are physically separated from other traffic lanes or monitored by cameras over five years.
Mr. de Blasio has completed 100 miles of protected bike lanes since 2014, but the City Council’s plan is more aggressive and reflect Mr. Johnson’s disdain for cars.
He has argued that, among other problems, the city has too many parking spaces, comments that have been viewed as a frontal attack on the two million or so New Yorkers who have cars.
The City Council has become increasingly eager to make its mark and to push Mr. de Blasio, who recently ended a failed presidential bid, on key issues.
“This is the Council playing a much bigger role in governance and trying to resolve some issues they see that the mayor was not going to tackle,” said Jon Orcutt, a longtime transit advocate and former city transportation official.
Mr. Orcutt pointed to a younger generation of Council members who ride bikes or want new lanes in their districts, like Antonio Reynoso and Carlos Menchaca.
After the recent spate of cyclist deaths, Mr. de Blasio’s administration pledged to add 30 miles of protected bike lanes a year, up from an average of 20 miles per year over the past three years.
The Streets Master Plan calls for 30 miles of protected bike lanes in the first year and 50 miles in each subsequent year. The city must also build 20 miles of bus lanes that are protected by a barrier or camera enforcement in the first year and at least 30 miles every year after.
The idea of protected bus lanes is a new one for New York, where the Metropolitan Transportation Authority is starting to mount cameras on buses to catch vehicles blocking bus lanes and fine them. London has long used cameras mounted to buses as a way to keep its buses moving.
Under Mr. de Blasio, the city also closed 14th Street to most traffic to create a “busway” to prioritize buses and is re-timing traffic lights to give priority to cyclists instead of motorists.
The official who oversees the subway and buses, Andy Byford, said he supported Mr. Johnson’s streets plan and its focus on expanding bus lanes.

“Early results from the dedicated busway on 14th Street show the huge passenger benefits that can be gained from giving transit priority,” Mr. Byford said in a statement.
Mr. de Blasio made street safety one of his signature initiatives shortly after he took office in 2014. His plan, known as Vision Zero, aims to eliminate traffic deaths by 2024.
Vision Zero has shown progress in recent years, bringing the number of traffic fatalities down to record lows. But the rise in cyclist deaths this year has alarmed safety advocates.
Mr. de Blasio’s office said the streets plan “builds on the foundations the Mayor has built over the last several years under Vision Zero.”
But Mr. de Blasio and his transportation commissioner, Polly Trottenberg, had raised concerns about the aggressive timeline set by Mr. Johnson. Mr. de Blasio said in a radio interview last month that he agreed on the goals of the streets plan, but said it would be difficult to implement.
“I agree with him on his analysis of needing to reorient our society away from cars,” Mr. de Blasio said. “I agree with him that we need to be aggressive in terms of bike lanes and bus lanes. I think the dissonance here is about how we figure out achievable goals.”
To gain Mr. de Blasio’s support, Mr. Johnson’s office agreed to push back the start date for the first streets plan, from this month to December 2021, around the time the next mayor takes office. Until then, the city will keep its current commitment to build 30 miles of protected bike lanes each year.
At a City Council hearing in June, Ms. Trottenberg said her agency would need billions of dollars in additional funding to implement the plans, along with new staff members, offices and construction equipment.
“Achieving the targets in the bill as drafted would require a significantly reconfigured agency,” Ms. Trottenberg said.
The streets plan is expected to cost about $1.7 billion over 10 years, according to estimates from Mr. Johnson’s office.
The bill also calls for installing so-called transit signal priority at 750 intersections during the first year and 1,000 intersections per year after that. Transit signal priority is a system that allows buses to turn traffic lights green to speed them up. The city must also create one million square feet of pedestrian space in the first two years.
Mr. Orcutt, who now works at the advocacy group Bike New York, praised the plan and said it formalized the idea of a citywide, interconnected bike network into law. He said the city’s request to push back the start date was reasonable because building 50 miles of protected bike lanes per year is a significant jump from the current rate.
“It’s going to take more people and more outreach,” he said. “There are some real logistical hurdles to hitting these targets.”

2020.04.28 12:17 Fwoggie2 Covid-19 update Tuesday 28th April

Good morning from the UK. It’s Tuesday 28th April.

My wife got an email this morning from her travel insurance company; her coverage is about to expire apparently and the company wants to know if she wants to renew her travel insurance coverage. My wife says it's OK with her if we're uninsured for travel for a while...
(I had to resort to archive.is links today, sorry, the mod-bot was in a bad mood and it refused repeated re-submissions before I gave up and used archive.is instead to get around it).

I failed to mention yesterday that it was the humble shipping container’s 64th birthday; on 27th April 1956 Malcolm McLean loaded 58 trailer vans (what we now call containers) onto a converted world war 2 era oil tanker named SS Ideal-X and off it sailed from Newark to Houston. Watching it sail off into the distance, Freddy Fields, a top official of the International Longshoremen's Association was asked "What do you think of that new ship?" Fields replied, "I'd like to sink that sonofabitch." (Longshoremen are the people who load and unload ships). Longshoremen strikes ensued, but the cost of shipping dropped by a factor of 36 overnight. The age of the container had arrived and in a further visionary move McLean made available his container patents free of charge thus ensuring rapid adaption of global standards in relation to construction and size of the containers. McLean’s company (which ended up being called SeaLand) steadily grew and by the end of the 60s SeaLand was sending over 1,000 containers every month from the US to Vietnam alone for the US military. McLean parted ways with Sealand by 1977 but in 1978 his new company United States Lines placed construction orders with a shipyard for a then world record 4,400 TEU (Twenty Foot Equivalent Unit, a standard measurement in the industry) shipyard. Unfortunately United States Lines went bankrupt shortly after, a victim of very high oil prices at the time.
Last week the Korean container shipping line HMM named its latest container ship HMM Algecerias. Its capacity is 23,964 TEU; more than 5 times the size of the ship McLean ordered 42 years ago. It may be a long time though before HMM Algecerias has a heavily laden voyage; currently there is massive overcapacity in the container shipping industry according to the American Journal of Transportation which clarifies that Maersk has a container ship fleet with a capacity of nearly 4.2m TEUs, MSC has 3.7m TEU fleet capacity while COSCO, CMA-CGM, Hapag Lloyd, ONE and Evergreen all have fleets with over 1m TEU capacity each. Between them (and other smaller operators), they’ve idled 9.2% of the world’s fleet in the past few months because there’s not enough cargo to fill the ships and make them operationally profitable. As for Malcolm McLean - he died in New York in 2001 but the Sealand name lives on as a division of Maersk (it bought SeaLand in Decembe 1999); today SeaLand operates in the Americas. Personally, for several years now I’ve fancied building a home out of shipping containers (much to the amusement of my wife). Maybe I should have a chat with her about it again; I reckon that suitable containers must be really cheap now.
Anyway…

Virus news in depth


Coronavirus: Anger after Panorama programme claims government 'failed to stockpile crucial PPE' - Yahoo News is reporting (as is pretty much every UK news outlet today) on a BBC Panorama show that was aired last night. (For the benefit of non Brits, Panorama is a flagship in-depth investigative program that’s over 50 years old and held in high esteem particularly for a 1995 interview with Princess Diana). There has been anger from health experts after an investigation revealed the government failed to stockpile crucial personal protective equipment (PPE) ahead of the coronavirus pandemic says Yahoo News.
BBC Panorama found there were no gowns, visors, swabs and body bags in the government’s pandemic stockpile when COVID-19 reached the UK. It said vital items were left out of the stockpile when it was set up in 2009 and that the government ignored a warning from its own advisers to buy missing equipment. The programme also claimed the government downgraded its guidance on the severity of COVID-19 as late as 13 March so it could provide a lower level of PPE to health workers. The programme, “Has the Government Failed the NHS?”, claimed the government counted single surgical gloves instead of a pair as one item of PPE with paper towels and cleaning materials such as bleach also counted as units of PPE. One health worker told the programme: “Calling us heroes just makes it okay when we die.”
(Cont’d) COVID-19 was officially designated a High Consequence Infectious Disease (HCID) in January. In 2019, the Health and Safety Executive recommended that all healthcare workers wear a gown, FFP3 respirator mask and visor when dealing with HCIDs. But Panorama said the government downgraded its PPE guidance on 13 March to tell NHS workers they were safe to wear less protective aprons and basic surgical masks - and took steps to remove COVID-19 from its list of HCIDs on the same day. Rather than consult the experts who recommended categorising COVID-19 as HCID, however, the government instead asked its Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP), Panorama said. The programme claimed sources on that committee said the decision was, in part, a decision based on the low availability of PPE.
(Cont’d) Dr Gabriel Scally, a former regional director of public health and honorary professor of public health at the University of Bristol, said the programme was “totally damning” for the government. Labour MP Zarah Sultana said the programme “showed the incredible bravery of NHS staff”. Charlotte Villiers, professor of law at the University of Bristol, tweeted: “How the government can survive and stay in power following that is unfathomable. They are drenched with guilt.”
The episode in question is available to UK residents on iplayer.

Supply chain news in depth


**USDA (**US Department of Agriculture) let millions of pounds of food rot while food-bank demand soared - Politico reports that Tens of millions of pounds of American-grown produce is rotting in fields as food banks across the country scramble to meet a massive surge in demand, a two-pronged disaster that has deprived farmers of billions of dollars in revenue while millions of newly jobless Americans struggle to feed their families. While other federal agencies quickly adapted their programs to the coronavirus crisis, the Agriculture Department took more than a month to make its first significant move to buy up surplus fruits and vegetables — despite repeated entreaties. Images of farmers destroying tomatoes, piling up squash, burying onions and dumping milk shocked many Americans who remain fearful of supply shortages. At the same time, people who recently lost their jobs lined up for miles outside some food banks, raising questions about why there has been no coordinated response at the federal level to get the surplus of perishable food to more people in need, even as commodity groups, state leaders and lawmakers repeatedly urged the Agriculture Department to step in. Demand at food banks has increased an average of 70 percent, according to Feeding America, which represents about 200 major food banks across the country. The group estimates that 40 percent of those being served are new to the system.
(Cont’d) In mid-April, USDA unveiled a long-awaited $19 billion aid program with $3 billion set aside to buy excess food, a pot of money that would cover a major ramp-up of fresh produce purchases, along with dairy and meats. But federal officials predicted it would take the better part of a month before that food is packed and shipped to food banks and other nonprofits in need. At that point, it will be too late for many produce growers who saw a huge drop in demand right at the peak of their season. “By the time that comes through, it won’t help Florida,” said Brittany Lee, a blueberry farmer and executive director of the Florida Blueberry Growers Association. Blueberry prices are about half of what they were this time last year, she said. The precipitous drop in demand left many growers with no choice but to trash excess food or leave it in the fields because the cost of picking, packing and storing the crops would only put them further in the hole. Some with more resources in hand took on the cost of harvesting and donating the food themselves, but the gut-wrenching reality is that crops are being abandoned on an unprecedented scale.
(Cont’d) Paul Allen, co-owner of RC Hatton Farms, is currently disking hundreds of acres of cabbage — a process that grinds crops into the soil — because there’s simply no market for it. It's heartbreaking to watch, but the cabbage he grows is typically used for coleslaw at restaurant chains like KFC. Allen estimates he’s left about 8 million pounds of cabbage and 4.5 million pounds of green beans in the fields. “We’ve been devastated,” Allen said. His company has already donated hundreds of thousands of pounds of vegetables to food banks. The company also sent containers of produce to the Bahamas and paid for the cost of harvesting to make it all happen. Now, Allen says, he must decide how many of his crops are better left unpicked, not knowing when much of his customer base will be able to reopen for business. “Do I keep taking on more losses?” he said, noting that vegetable growers have already spent several thousands of dollars per acre before harvest. “But if I stop growing food for our country, that’s a bigger problem yet.”
(Cont’d) Produce industry leaders, including Allen, are also furious that USDA plans to impose payment limits for the rest of its aid to farmers affected by coronavirus. The department said in mid-April that agricultural producers would be limited to $125,000 per commodity or $250,000 total to help compensate them for damages as it hands out $16 billion in direct payments. “We begged them not to put a cap on it,” Allen said. Farmers who grow fruits and vegetables have extremely high costs per acre and often plant at such a large scale that the payments won’t even begin to cover their losses. It typically costs less than $700 per acre to grow commodity soybeans. It costs more than $4,000 per acre to grow cabbage. “What is fair is not always equal,” he said. While $250,000 is a lot of money for most Americans, it represents about one day's harvest for RC Hatton. The scale of produce waste is staggering. Farmers in Florida, which provides much of the fresh produce to the eastern half of the U.S. during the winter and spring, left about 75 percent of the lettuce crop unharvested, along with significant portions of the state’s sweet corn, cabbage and squash. Up to 250 million pounds of tomatoes could end up left in the fields, according to the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services. Florida officials estimate produce growers there have taken a half a billion dollar hit. In California, the industry is projected to lose more than $1 billion per month.

Day 11: The Greatest Show on Court

Last week, Sports Illustrated Magazine wrote an article and devoted a cover to this 2000-2001 Sacramento Kings; titling them “The Greatest Show on Court”. After making the playoffs only once in the previous 12 seasons, the Kings were fresh off of back to back post season appearances and ready to be acknowledged as a Western Conference Powerhouse.
2001/02/19 Sports Illustrated Cover
Their starting lineup featured fierce and talented All-NBA Power Forward Chris Webber, sharpshooter Peja Stojakovic, defensive minded Shooting Guard Doug Christie , versatile big man Vlade Divac, and the fearlessly flashy Jason Williams at the Point Guard position.
Coached by potential Hall of Famer Rick Adelman, they had depth as well, at any time being able to bring Bobby Jackson, Scot Pollard , Hedo Turkoglu , and Lawrence Funderburke off the bench in order to make a quick and lasting impact upon the game. After many years of disappointment and struggle, it was a wonderful time to be a fan of the Kings.
This is a revision do it by Stephen Rubalcaba about this incredible article that you can see in the figure above, but I want to notice two points in this team, not about the incredible players but in numbers: Pace and Offensive rating, where they are the first team in both section, and here we understand the new, fresh way to play that makes everyone love them.
Some midseason predictions in the magazine
Yesterday It was the Trade deadline and we have to present a bomb in the league, and some other important trades, with the last dance of Sixers searching the title, and a lot of changes in Toronto face to the postseason:
  • The Philadelphia 76ers traded Toni Kukoč, Nazr Mohammed, Theo Ratliff and Pepe Sánchez to the Atlanta Hawks for Roshown McLeod and Dikembe Mutombo.
  • The Toronto Raptors traded Tyrone Corbin, Kornél Dávid, Corliss Williamson and a 2005 1st round draft pick to the Detroit Pistons for Eric Montross and Jerome Williams.
  • The Toronto Raptors traded Muggsy Bogues and Mark Jackson to the New York Knicks for Chris Childs and a 2002 1st round draft pick.
  • The Washington Wizards traded Calvin Booth, Obinna Ekezie and Juwan Howard to the Dallas Mavericks for Courtney Alexander, Hubert Davis, Christian Laettner, Etan Thomas, Loy Vaught and cash.

Day 12: The Big Duo

A relationship is so complex, people from different sites with different points of view trying to walk the same path into a common interest. Shaq and Kobe are two of the best players in the league but they are too different. Kobe is the young leader-scorer looking into dominate Los Angeles, while Shaq is the old dog used to chase away the beats from the Los Angeles Lakers. Two trains on full speed with only one possible ending, a tragic divorce.
Shaquille and Kobe in 1997
You mustn’t be so melancholy yet, it could be a tragic ending but everything has an ending, that’s the life and the league. We never know when it could be the last kiss, the last dance, the last concert or the last match, but instead of being afraid about the future you should be thankful about today, every night is a gift so enjoy the game.

There were so many duos dominating the league: Kareem and Magic, Pippen and Jordan, Russell and Cousy, Erving and Malone, Thomas and Dumars. History of friendship, history of the league. And now we have to appreciate this incredible and different big duo. The best guard and the best center in the league combining to be the best scorer in the second best team in the west. Now you can see one of the latest dance about this two great players in the Los Angeles Lakers (44-21), against Orlando Magic (36-29) with the awaken star Tracy McGrady who we talked about some time ago.

Indiana Pacers was one of the greatest in the ABA (ancient basketball Asociation absorbed by the NBA) with 3 championships, 5 finals in 9 years. Then they decided to join NBA, and now they are one of the most competitive franchise in the league but I can’t let thinking about the Sisyphus’ story. In 1995 they were the neared the top, losing the NBA eastern final conference in 7 games vs Orlando Magic, after that they lost in first round and didn’t classify to playoff in the following two years, but after difficult years they achieved roll their immense boulder up into the finals, but again they have fallen into the bottom, they are eighth in a poor east and they probably don’t throw away from first round.
Conference Standings 04/10
Could Pacers break the spell and rolling the boulder up to the glory and don’t fall down when they would near the top? Today we have the Indiana Pacers (37-40) trying to guarantee playing at least 3 more games next week, against the New York Knicks (46-31) singing their own ode to the update, with a lot to improve to the next years.

We are ready to feel the PlayOff, we are on 22th April everything is fine, and we will check one last time the bracket to make our personal predictions.
Brackets NBA 2001
We will watch the first game in the first round western conference between Minnesota and San Antonio, Tim Duncan vs Kevin Garnett, two of the best power forward in the league, they are so young but they are ready to dominate the league.

Day 15: Lost

Lost Conference Semifinals 4–1 in 1983, lost Conference Semifinals 4–1 in 1985, lost First Round 3–0 in 1989, lost Conference Finals 4–2 in 1991, lost First Round 3–1 in 1997, lost First Round 3–1 in 1998, Lost Conference Finals 4–3 last year. "Lost" is the only word the Blazers fans have listened in every showdown between these teams, besides, Portland went from a (42-18) in march to a fateful (50-32), in other words in the last two month they have a record of (8-14). Like a Chronicle of a Death Foretold it seems our story only could pass in one way.

Old rivalry strikes again, this is the first game in the first round, the second in the west (Lakers) vs seventh in the west (Blazers). It could seems not very interesting, but we are going to see a historic rivalry and everything could happen, and for sure they will fight until the end. https://mega.nz/#F!utgwmYbS

Day 16: Captain Kidd

Legend states that Captain Kidd was one of the most important pirate to sail the seven seas until was tried and executed. Point Guard as serious as any we have ever fought, Jason is built over a great IQ and a great skill in the pass, he is ready to navigate even the worse cruise but Phoenix doesn't have enough gunpowder not even to take the weakest kingdom in the NBA. He would be free to change of franchise this summer but until that moment everyone in Phoenix has taking their weapons for the war and they successfully and unexpectedly have won the first game (86-83) in California, a hard blow to the greatest show on the court.

PlayOff is one of the most complicated competitios, one or two bad matches and you are over, months and months of hard working for nothing, a cold shiver through your body, no more competitions in 5 months. Our protagonist will be out in a few moments to show us who's chasing harder the win. https://mega.nz/#F!blxQDYoZ

Day 17: The Cowboys

The Cowboys is a 1972 American western film starring John Wayne, the plot of this film is simple, when the ranch hands abandon him to join a gold rush, aging rancher William ‘Wil’ Andersen (John Wayne) is forced to find replacement drovers for his upcoming 400-mile (640 km) long cattle drive. He rides into deserted Bozeman, Montana. There, his friend Anse Peterson (Slim Pickens) suggests using local schoolboys. Andersen visits the school but departs unconvinced by the boys’ immature behavior.

These are our young cowboys, some guys travel one more time long into the desert of the west conference looking for the glory of a NBA title. In a principle, this isn’t the best team, but they are so good friends without pressure and an owner (Cuban), happy for their kids, walking in the same direction. After 10 consecutive years without PlayOff everything has changed and they have finished fifth in the west conference, but even better, they have one of the youngest roster and their rebuilding is done, they only have to catch the roof by winning the championship and this could happen in the following years.
The film is also notable for being one of the few in which John Wayne’s character is killed and the only one where he is killed by the main antagonist. We hope this won’t be the same luck for our cowboys that are fighting in the final game 5 of the first round against Utah Jazz, an historic with Stockton and Malone two-times-finalists. This western duel it will start, pay attention: (https://mega.nz/#F!a4AjjQqY)

Day 18: Vince Earhart

The history of aviation dates back to the day when the ancient man used to observe the flight of birds and other flying animals. The desire to fly has been present in humanity for centuries, and throughout human history there is evidence of attempts to fly that have ended badly. Some tried to fly imitating birds, using a pair of wings made with a wooden skeleton and feathers, which they placed on the arms and swung them without achieving the expected result. But Amelia Earhart was different, she didn’t have the same dreams as the other childen, and she achieved to be the first woman crossing the Atlantic Ocean in 1928.
2000 Carter flying photo
Vince Carter neither was an ordinary child, and he has a dream, he wanted to fly over the basketball court, and he did last year, impressing all the world winning the Dunk contest in the All Star. He is one of the most skillful players in the league and he has one of the most difficult challenges in his shortly career, to win a game 5 of the first round in PlayOff. They will travel to the Big Apple to certificate a semifinal eastern conference pass. Could they take it? (https://mega.nz/#F!jhYHwCSY)

2020.02.27 03:55 MooMan1315 Queer Speed Dating in San Antonio!

There will be appetizers, and of course drink specials to give you some liquid courage! Each ticket is $20, which helps pay for catering, and venue costs. I’ll post the Eventbrite link below. Feel free to hit me up if you have any questions!
