Lebanese president vows reforms as protests engulf country

Willowed.

Mostly for Ig...

The F2 driver Juan Carlos Correa who was badly injured in the crash at Spa that killed Antoine Hubert, stood for the first time since the accident. Been a hard road for him - first a lung injury that required induced coma and ECMO that delayed treatment for his fractures, then a ten-hour surgery to address immediate issues surrounding his broken legs and determine if his right leg could be saved, then a seventeen-hour surgery to try and save the leg.

Still has a long healing and rehab road ahead.

I know this is NPR, but occasionally This American Life does a story really well, and I would argue that this first-hand account of participating in the Hong Kong protests is superb reporting. I've linked the transcript to read, but if you go to the link you can choose to listen instead.

An excerpt:

Ira Glass:
For a Hong Kong protester to live at home with her mom and dad, that is not unusual in any way. If you know anything about the demonstrations that have overtaken Hong Kong since June, you know it's mostly young people in the city where rents are high. Katherine's 22 and just graduated college. She's working her first entry level job at a public relations firm.

I came to Hong Kong because there were things about the protests that I really did not understand, and we'll get to that. One of the things that fascinated me once I arrived was learning what a routine the protests have become and what that was like for the people in them. This was mid-September, the 13th week of protests for Katherine.

Katherine
I'm not really worried because it's just like another day. I think I will meet up with two friends of mine. But I'm not sure if I am going to because they are couples, so I don't want to be-- [LAUGHS] they are couples, so I don't want to be-- they always kiss next to me. So, mm, yeah.

[PHONE RINGING]

[SPEAKING CHINESE]

Ira Glass
Speak of the devil, it's her friend, the one who kisses her boyfriend at demonstrations. And she's calling with bad news. She was going to bring gas masks to the rally today. They'd order them from Amazon, Katherine thinks. But now she's learned that bringing gas masks would be a bad idea because at the subway station--

Katherine
Police are searching everybody, including men, little ones, and young people like us. They're searching their bags, and if they have any equipment with them, like the gas mask, eye mask, whatever, they just arrest them. Yeah. So my friend just asked me if it is a must for me to get the gas mask, so I told her that no, it is not a must. I don't want to risk my friend getting searched. So she told the other friend not to come out with equipment.

Ira Glass
Not ideal, but she's gone without gas masks before. Katherine grabs her knapsack, says bye to her mom, who tells her to come home early, a request that will be totally ignored. And we head outside. But then she turns and runs back.

Ira Glass
What did you forget?

Katherine
Umbrella. It is very important to have umbrella.

Ira Glass
Even if it's not going to rain?

Katherine
Yeah. It is not for the rain. It is for tear gas and bullets.

Ira Glass
Rubber bullets, that is.

Ira Glass
It works on bullets?

Katherine
Yes. Frankly, yes. No, no, I don't understand why, but always, those bullets, they slip off along the umbrella edge. So they just-- they don't get through the umbrella.

Robin,

That's exactly what I've heard. So I can understand people flocking up there to create a NY Napa Valley.

I'm here in northern NJ, but I've traveled to Greene and Columbia counties to do genealogical research on my family. I really liked what I saw of the people and the land.

New York is a really great state for so many reasons, it's just run by the wrong people.

I've made minor tourist incursions into Albany and Schenectady counties for the same genealogical reasons.

If that lightning socket wiggles a lot, you'll have charging issues because of the solderless adhesive connection used. PITA.

Regarding the discussion on the parking garage collapse, Iggy is correct, all rebar for floors, columns, etc is a detailed rebar design. Any Owner and/or Contractor worth a reputation will also have both QA/QC personnel as well as written procedures.

Also, rebar should be clean before pours. Not dirty or rusty, if you want total adhesion. Many a concrete structure has failed because of that rebar condition.

NY has the best fresh water fishing industry with the finger lakes and the queen of them all, Lake Ontario, sometimes referred to as Lady O.

In my NeverTrump days out here I opined that one of the reasons I didn't like Trump was because he changed parties so often and didn't even vote until he was 40. But after thinking about it, I can see why successful businessmen grease both parties to get along.

The Infamous Ignatz

--To be clear, I posted that before Iggy weighed in.--

TBH, most, but not all, prog regulations here occur as a form of background radiation. There is relatively little overt interaction with the craziness.
It is rather experienced as a sea of high costs and inconveniences in which we swim, and purposely so. As the withholding tax is actually seen by some of the hoi polloi as some type of beneficent refund dispenser every April, the burdens are usually placed directly on employers and businesses, who then take most of the blame for the sky high cost of living and the inefficient and burdensome system from the same dolts who think Uncle Sam is giving them a gift of someone else's money each spring.

LUNCH WITH THE POPE

President Trump invited the Pope for lunch on his mega yacht.

The Pope accepted and during lunch a puff of wind blew the Pontiff's hat off, right into the water.

It floated off about 50 feet, then the wind died down and it just floated in place.

The crew and the Secret Service were scrambling to launch a boat to go get it, when Trump waved them off, saying, "Never mind boys, I'll get it.???

Then Donald climbed over the side of the yacht, walked on the water to the hat, picked it up, walked back on the water, climbed into the yacht, and handed the Pope his hat.

The crew was speechless. The security team and the Pope's entourage were speechless. No one knew what to say, not even the Pope

Isn't the granting or withholding of aid and the application or forbearance of sanctions in virtually every case based upon a quid pro quo that is at least partially predicated on getting the quid pro quoer reelected or benefiting him politically?
