No Stanley Cup games yet, sbw. And my Islanders disappoint again.

But I think I know what you meant and intended.

I had an American Airlines mileage credit card for over 20 years (until Citi pissed me off). Flew with them often and was usually pretty happy. Clarice might be right that it's recent and Boeing related.

This is a week old, but I saved it because I thought it was very good. Anyone else read it?

I flew American a lot the last few years, though not at all this year. Mostly short hops, generally found them pretty reliable. I still have the AA credit card, and between real travel miles and credit card points I have around a million miles in my account. They don't make it easy to use the miles, though. I recently used some to maintain my elite status for another year, but that was probably a waste because I now don't expect to use them much.

Looks like Evers and the Wisc Legislature are indeed unzipping the FoxxConn deal, at FoxxConn's request.

‘Disgusting’: Donald Trump Jr. Slams NY Times over Anti-Semitic Cartoon

Disgusting. I have no words for flagrant anti-Semitism on display here. Imagine this was in something other than a leftist newspaper? https://t.co/3t47DW9OCB

— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) April 27, 2019

(Click to open.)

Trump Jr. is not the only son of the two world leaders in the cartoon who spoke out. Netanyahu’s son, Yair, slammed the New York Times over the depiction.

“No one should be surprised by the vile, anti-Semitic cartoon published in New York Times,” the younger Netanyahu told Breitbart News on Saturday.

Yair charged The Times “has always been an anti-Israel newspaper, and yes, anti-Jewish too.”

yair netanyahu
Yair Netanyahu: The Times “has always been an anti-Israel newspaper, and yes, anti-Jewish too.”

Netanyahu referred, among other things, to The Times’ controversial World War II treatment of reports that Adolph Hitler was methodically murdering the Jews of Europe, with the newspaper at the time infamously relegating the few reports it carried on the Holocaust to the back pages.

“During World War II, the newspaper deliberately hid from the American public news dispatches about the extermination of millions of Jews in Europe,” Yair Netanyahu charged.

Netanyahu pointed out that extensive coverage of Hitler’s atrocities against Jews may have prompted the American public to “demand that the government take steps to help the Jews…actions like bombing the death camps and railways could have saved millions of lives.”

“It’s no surprise that the New York Times so strongly opposes President Trump’s brave decisions to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and declare the Golan Heights as part of Israel,” Netanyahu added.

Melinda, re Evers letter to Foxconn. Fitzgerald and Vos both say Foxconn did not ask to renegotiate. As does Foxconn. As far as I can tell, that is recycled fake news.

Brad Parscale was on Face the Nation this morning, with an interview that was taped April 9.

Conservative Treehouse posted the video:

https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/04/28/sunday-talks-full-interview-with-brad-parscale/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

This is a really good interview. When you have tie, watch it. Parscale is way ahead of the democrats both on data collection and fund-raising. He also says a lot of the stories about how Trump interacts with employees are total myth.

He's a fast talker so you have to listen carefully. If I can find a transcript, I will post it.

Jim Eagle

Nope I find it typical Mueller. Look at his history in MA - jailing several innocent people while letting Whitey Bulger go free.

MissMarple2

Hack,

I don't think he says anything without Trump's approval. They already HAVE the data, so no one can prevent that.

The fundraising is also the same. He has my cell phone number from my registering for the rally I attended. I now get text messages all the time, most of which ask for donations. I would give more if I wasn't on a tight budget.

Now, what will the dems do hearing that interview? They are so fractured that they won't share data with each other. Some of them will panic.

I liked the interview because it gave me confidence that things are under control.

Melinda

I took it as confirmation he’s wholly owned by someone.

They have not abandoned their Never Trump stance and as far as I am concerned they are useless.

Useless would be an improvement. They are actively working with our enemies and don’t nag their best to sabotage the country.

Jack, you're right about Parscale--he should be somewhat more circumspect. That said, he is confident on the metrics for good reasons. And he does really back Trump very sincerely--he's not just a talented functionary.

MissMarple2

Melinda,

OMG! Jack, I am so sorry!

My comment is that he has a special talent, and I do not want him giving any secrets to that talent away to the Dems. I would rather him be more misleading or disinformative.

Graham Hancock. Good news and bad for those who were discussing him awhile back. He’s already passed through CA and is on his way up here. So Jim NC just missed him but we have a chance to head down to Seattle Tuesday to see him on his new book tour. Just now watching a 3hr Rogan interview that is quite well done.

sbw, we've had to fly American since they bought out US Air.

No issues for us, but we are a hub. A friend who lived in Charleston said they cancelled those flights ALL THE TIME. He suspected based on lack of passengers, but they always some other reason.

--Thanks, amom. I'd never run across it before.--

Rituxin is an immunotherapy, or monoclonal antibody*, used primarily against non Hodgkins lymphomas. Two friends were cured by it, and another is taking it right now. Side effects for all have been minimal.

Unfortunately for the large majority of epithelial cancers, which is the majority of all cancers, basic chemotherapy has changed little for years. There are marginal improvements here and there and management of side effects, particularly red and white blood cell suppression is greatly improved. But for most cancers things are depressingly little changed and a stage IV diagnosis is still an almost universal death sentence.

*Erbitux, which indirectly sent Martha Stewart to jail, is another.

It occurred to me earlier this morning, after seeing a clip of Hillary! basically mock all comers during the Benghazi hearings, that she knew what she was going to be asked and the extent of what was going to be covered because of what the Awan Network had already provided through to DWS.

Melinda,

I see that the Rosenberg followers seem to think he was fired because he wouldn't take children from illegal immigrants.

This seems unlikely to me, as I don't think the President is foolish enough to do such a thing. I think the new commander being a Marine seems sort of significant.

Everyone now acts like Gitmo is Devil's Island, but my sister lived there for 2 years when her then-husband was stationed there in the Navy. She loved it!

MissMarple2

Narciso79,

As I was reading that article on Gillibrand I came across this paragraph in an excerpt from Politico, and it really struck me as to how the left (and that includes Politico) feel:

"In the absence of an economic slowdown, however, Trump is still benefiting from top-line numbers that Democrats are having difficulty undermining. Unemployment remains low, the economy is expanding and, on Friday, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq stock indices both reached record highs."

So, they need to UNDERMINE those good economic numbers. How about that?

re Gitmo... I'm glad the Commander who was sacked was not Capt Fischer. I work with his wife from time to time since she works from there remotely while her husband does his tour.

Sorry if already discussed, but apparently the woman killed at that California synagogue jumped in front of the rabbi and took the shot that killed her (he had already been shot in the hands). Her husband was a doctor who ran to resuscitate the victim, but fainted when he realized it was his wife.

44 children at age 36!

That seems mathematically almost impossible, unless there were a lot of triplets. I thought some of them weren't hers, they were husbands' by previous marriages or something.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--A friend who studies such things for NIH says a Stage IV diagnosis (say of Breast cancer) is no longer a sure death sentence.--

IMO she's wrong. They can cure stage IV testicular cancer and a few other uncommon ones and they can keep stage IV patients alive longer, sometimes until some complication or other disease kills them instead, but the basic ability to cure Stage IV or even manage it successfully in most cases is certainly news to me.
It's true that the overall cancer death rate has dropped around 25% or so, but that is almost entirely due to the successful treatment of certain specific limited cancers, like some non-hodgkins lymphomas, some leukemias and a few hard tumors and from earlier detection of breast, colon, prostate, etc, cancers, but for the large majority of lung, liver, breast, colon, pancreatic cancers, etc, metastasis = terminal.
I wish it didn't but I'm watching a few friends die from it right now.

--As near as I can tell, Warren seems to be banking on $15/hour minimum wage for McDonald's workers, which will make a Big Mac cost 5 bucks.--

She had 2 single babies. The rest are Twins, triplets and quads. 1 died. They live in 3 or 4 houses - I forget and her husband left her. She tried to get fixed but the doctor said she had too many ovaries so it could kill her. She was married at age12.

Iggy--she may have been suggesting that modern developments extend the period of life. Once upon a time that diagnosis meant very little time was left.
"Approximately 3.5 million women in the U.S. are living with breast cancer, including more than 154,000 with disease that has spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body, known as metastatic breast cancer (stage IV). The outlook for non-metastatic breast cancer patients has overall improved, with an average five-year survival rate reaching close to 100 percent for people with stage 0 or I breast cancer, and 93 percent for people with stage II breast cancer.

The prognosis for those women diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer is not as promising. But, as research continues, progress is emerging. The percentage of women surviving five years with metastatic breast cancer (aged 15-49) doubled from 18 to 36 percent between 1994 and 2012.

“Sometimes metastatic breast cancer can be considered much more of a chronic disease,” said Denise A. Yardley, M.D., a senior investigator at the Sarah Cannon Research Institute in Nashville, TN. “I’ve seen a positive impact on patients who continue relatively normal lives despite their disease and treatment.”

DENISE A. YARDLEY, M.D.
DENISE A. YARDLEY, M.D., FROM THE SARAH CANNON RESEARCH INSTITUTE BELIEVES WE ARE SEEING PROGRESS IN THE TREATMENT AND PROGNOSIS OF METASTATIC BREAST CANCER.

Treatment Advances Are Constantly Occuring

There are many forms of metastatic breast cancer. Patients’ tumors can be either positive or negative for growth receptors, signaling the presence or absence of the known drivers of the disease. And they may or may not have disease driven by HER2 (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2) receptors. That complexity and the cross signaling from the HER2 receptor to other growth factor receptors, as well as the multitude of treatments available to treat metastatic breast cancer are part of the reason it has been a particularly difficult disease to treat. But translational researchers are making significant strides to further understand tumor biology and the genomics behind breast cancer subtypes.

The end result is a more tailored treatment approach based on a patient’s specific tumor biology and other clinical factors. With an expansion in targeted therapies, there is greater value in having patients’ tumors thoroughly examined so treatments are better selected. “We’re continuing to try to improve our precision medicine and really tailor treatments to what’s going on in that specific patient’s tumor,” Yardley said.

Doctors also have a better understanding of how to use the growing array of treatments. While combination therapy is used in early stages of breast cancer, recent studies have provided additional evidence on how to sequence treatment options for their patients. We now also focus on balancing symptom control with quality of life and partnering with our patients to make appropriate treatment selections at any given time.”

There’s every reason to be optimistic for patients facing the diagnosis and challenges of metastatic breast cancer today."

Asked by someone on the blog AR15.
Any answers here amongst the lawyers?
Any guesses on whether the MSM will bring it up?

Recently revelations by Ms Harris that she smokes dope and owns a firearm have me wondering how did she buy the firearm? Thru a FFL or a private purchase? Did she fill out ATF form 4473 Sec 11 (e)? The question about illegal use of marijuana?

Maybe this needs to be investigated?

Personally I don't give 2 sh*ts if people smoke dope, I don't, never will but I have always honestly filled out ATF 4473 for all my firearm purchases.

A Harvard Business School professor recently predicted that up to half of all American colleges and universities will go bankrupt in the next ten to 15 years. ... Many institutions below the top tier are scrambling to respond to the collapse of the higher-education bubble by jettisoning the liberal arts and pumping up the practical ones. .... This approach has been employed in a particularly crude and short-sighted manner at the University of Tulsa, where a new administration has turned a once-vibrant academic institution with a $1.1 billion endowment and a national reputation in core liberal arts subjects into a glorified trade school with a social-justice agenda.

Every few years, someone seems to have an "Aha!" moment in which they think they've finally answered the eternal question, "What Is Art?" They are inevitably wrong, and should have gotten over the urge to try back in college.

Speaking of art, if you had to guess who painted this portrait:

L'Oncle Dominique en casqette

Would you have guessed Cezanne? I certainly didn't although the longer I look at it, the more sense it makes. Enjoy it while you can. It's up for auction at Sotheby's in May, and unless a museum snaps it up,, it may ne'er be seen in public again: L'Oncle Dominique en Casqette.

Meant to thank you for the VDH suggestion for my foray into the lions' den the other day, but got sidetracked! I loved the cemetery sign as well. Montana really is something. There's hardly a list of anything from best places to live on down, where it doesn't come in near the top.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

We have a burn pit in the back yard. We don't use it for leaves (we have woods next to us so just rake them onto a tarp and drag them across the property line), but we do use it for all the dead branches and stuff that litters the yard after a storm. Mostly legal in Georgia unless they impose a ban for drought.

They told me to have a nice day.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

The young bride approached her awaiting husband on their wedding night and demanded $20 for their first love-making encounter. In his highly aroused state, he readily agreed. This scenario was repeated each time they made love for the next 30 years, him thinking it was a cute way for her to buy new clothes, etc.

Arriving home around noon one day, she found her husband in a very drunken state. Over the next few minutes she heard of the ravages of financial ruin caused by corporate downsizing and its effects on a 50 year old executive.

Calmly, she handed him a bank book showing deposits and interest for 12 years totaling nearly $1 million dollars.
Pointing across the parking lot she gestured toward the local bank while handing him stock certificates worth nearly $2 million dollars and informing him that he was the largest stockholder in the bank. She told him that for 30 years she had charged him each time they had sex, and this was the result of her investments.

By now he was distraught and beating his head against the side of the car. She asked him why the disappointment at such good news and he replied, "If I had known what you were doing, I would have given you all of my business!"
