Thousands of US troops head for southern border

Washington: The Pentagon is deploying 5,200 active-duty troops to beef up security along the US-Mexico border, officials announced Monday, in a bid to prevent a caravan of Central American migrants from illegally crossing the frontier.
The move represents a massive military buildup along the border, where some 2,000 National Guardsmen are already working to provide assistance to overwhelmed authorities.
Trump in recent weeks has repeatedly said more troops are needed to tighten border security, and he has made political capital of the caravan ahead of crucial midterm congressional elections that could see the Democrats regain some degree of power.
According to US Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan, US authorities are tracking a group of about 3,500 people traveling north through the Chiapas-Oaxaca area in southern Mexico.
Additionally, officials were monitoring another group of about 3,000 people that had gathered at a border crossing between Guatemala and Mexico.
Even as US officials unveiled details of the military deployment, migrants were trying to cross the Suchiate River from Guatemala into Mexico on rafts made from truck tires, or by forming human chains to avoid being swept away.
Others swam across after Mexican authorities refused to open a border bridge.
McAleenan described the situation along the US-Mexico frontier as a “border security and humanitarian crisis,” and said border agents over the past three weeks had apprehended about 1,900 people per day illegally crossing.
“Over half of these arrivals have been made up of family units and unaccompanied children who place themselves in the hands of violent human smugglers, paying 7,000 (dollars) per person to make the journey,” McAleenan said.
“They are incentivized to try to cross our border by the gaps in our legal framework and the expectation that they would be allowed to stay.”
The massive deployment marks a sharp increase from initial estimates last week, when US officials said about 800 active-duty troops would head south.
It means that within days, the US military will have more than three times as many troops along the southern border as it does fighting the Islamic State group in Syria.
– ‘Please go back’ –
Trump last week expressed frustration that the issue, which had been attracting growing cable news attention, had slipped from front pages as top figures in the Democratic Party were targeted by a series of mail bombs.
He took to Twitter on Monday to again blast the migrant caravan, which is comprised mainly of Hondurans — many of whom are fleeing horrific gang violence.
“Many Gang Members and some very bad people are mixed into the Caravan heading to our Southern Border,” Trump wrote without providing evidence, doubling down on the hardline anti-immigrant rhetoric that helped fuel his 2016 election victory.
“Please go back, you will not be admitted into the United States unless you go through the legal process. This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!”
Trump has been campaigning intensively for weeks, frequently hammering on the migrant caravan issue.
He is expected to hold 11 rallies in the final six days ahead of the November 6 midterms, which Washington pundits are characterizing as a referendum on his presidency.
The American Civil Liberties Union blasted Trump’s decision to send troops, calling the move a political one to fuel “his anti-immigrant agenda of fear and division” ahead of the midterms.
“These migrants need water, diapers, and basic necessities —- not an army division,” ACLU lawyer Shaw Drake said.
In April, Trump ordered up to 4,000 National Guardsmen to head to the border as a different migrant caravan wound its way north. About 2,100 have deployed.
– ‘Harden’ the border –
Air Force General Terrence O’Shaughnessy, head of the US military’s Northern Command, told reporters the 5,200 troops would focus on trying to “harden” border crossings and surrounding areas, with work done by combat engineering battalions with experience building temporary fencing.
Additionally, the Pentagon is sending military police and three helicopter companies equipped with high-tech sensors and night-vision capabilities.
They will bring border personnel “exactly where they need to be, regardless of the conditions,” O’Shaughnessy said.
Though soldiers are not conducting direct law-enforcement operations and will ostensibly be in a support role, they will nonetheless be deployed with their weapons, officials noted.
In addition to the main caravans in southern Mexico, a group of around 300 migrants left San Salvador, the El Salvador capital, on foot Sunday heading for the border with Guatemala in the hope of eventually reaching the United States.

The US is sending 5,000 troops to the border. Here’s what they can and can’t do.

President Donald Trump has ordered an additional 5,200 troops to “harden” the US-Mexico border before the so-called caravan of migrants from Central America seeking asylum and a new life in the US arrives. The group of about 4,000 migrants from mostly Honduras and Guatemala is currently 1,000 miles and weeks away from the US border.
Senior officials from the Pentagon and the Customs and Border Protection told reporters on Monday that 800 service members are already headed to Texas, with the remaining 4,400 arriving over the coming days.
The forces, deployed as part of “Operation Faithful Patriot,” will include military police, pilots, and engineers and will be in the area from November 5 to December 15. The goal is to “harden our ports of entry,” in California, Arizona, and Texas, Customs and Border Protection chief Kevin McAleenan said.
That would increase the number of US military personnel at the Southern frontier to roughly 7,000 — about 5,000 more than America has in Syria to fight ISIS and approximately one-third the size of the entire Border Patrol force at the US-Mexico line.
The problem for Trump, though, is that the military won’t actually be able to participate in detaining or deporting any of the migrants the way the president likely wants. That’s because US law forbids them from physically detaining individuals at the border.
So while the troops at the border will be armed, they will only legally be able to assist US border officials by doing things like helping transport border agents and providing emergency medical care to those who need it. The armed forces can also work to reinforce infrastructure around the border, like putting additional razor wire on border fences.
In other words, while it may be intended to look as if the US is preparing for a massive invasion of immigrants at the Southern border, the reality is that it’s mostly just sending backup logistical support to help border agents address the arrival of a few thousand migrants — around half of whom are girls and women — who have been traveling by foot for weeks over.
Still, Trump is clearly hoping that the military deployment will prove a deterrent to the caravan headed northward. “This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!” he tweeted on Monday morning.
Here’s a short guide on what the military can — and can’t — do at the border.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen gave a good summary of what US troops are authorized to do.
“What we’ve asked them to do is help to bolster our capabilities,” she told Fox News last Thursday. “We’ve asked for some air support, for some logistics, some planning, vehicle barriers, engineering; ways in which we can make sure that I can protect my officers and agents, as well as the ports of entry themselves.”
Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy, the head of US Northern Command, told reporters on Monday what that assistance might look like. The military will send:
While troops will be armed, they can only support Border Patrol agents, not detain anyone (more on that below).
Michael Fisher, the US Border Patrol chief from 2005 to 2010, gave me one example of how the partnership will work.
Some troops will join Entry Identification Teams, which help to spot immigrants as they cross the border. “The military would be somewhere along the border, typically in an elevated location, providing eyes and ears for Border Patrol agents,” Fisher said.
As Vox’s Dara Lind explains, “It is completely legal for anyone on US soil to seek asylum, regardless of whether or not they have papers. People who present themselves for asylum at a port of entry — an official border crossing — break no US law.”
“People who cross between ports of entry are committing a federal misdemeanor,” however, though Lind writes that in even in those cases, “the US government is still required to allow them to pursue an asylum claim.”
It’s the people who may be crossing at an unofficial port of entry that the US border agents — and their US military partners — will likely be on the lookout for.
Border agents will be “in close proximity” to the US troops, but will leave on their own to arrest the spotted migrants. The military won’t be involved in actually detaining any individuals.
The military’s main impact, though, may actually be in their logistical assistance. The National Guard has operated in the US-Mexico border area since the 1990s, and much of what it does is build and repair infrastructure, like roads and the border fence.
The military’s ability to help transport Border Patrol officials around the area in planes and helicopters is also highly valuable, as border enforcement officials don’t have all the necessary equipment. The military can also provide temporary housing and protective gear for agents.
Fisher told me that, in his years of experience, he found the military’s help manning the border to be quite useful, but he added that, if needed, the law enforcement could do the majority of its work without the backup.
So why can’t US troops do what Trump wants and arrest immigrants who may be coming across the border illegally? Well, it’s against the law.
The US military is barred from using its capabilities directly to enforce US domestic laws — including immigration laws — unless Congress specifically authorizes it to do so. This measure, known as “posse comitatus,” is why US troops can only support US border agents, but not take direct action themselves.
O’Shaughnessy on Monday said the military will conduct all of its operations at the border “in adherence to posse comitatus.”
The Pentagon will foot the bill for the deployment. It’s unclear how much it will cost, but so far the military paid $185 million to send 2,000 National Guard troops to the border earlier this year.
It’s possible that all of these details will be resolved after all the troops have arrived. But some say the move is simply political.
Trump’s decision is “a misuse of active duty military,” Gil Kerlikowske, a former Customs and Border Protection chief, told the Washington Post on Monday. “To say this isn’t a political stunt is misleading the public.”
Correction: An original version of this piece said the deployment included three helicopters. It’s actually three helicopter companies.

'He hasn't the face of villainy'

Maryclare Dale, Claudia Lauer and Allen G Breen
October 30 2018 2:30 AM
The man accused of the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre appeared briefly in federal court in a wheelchair and handcuffs yesterday, to face charges he killed 11 people in what is believed to be the deadliest attack on Jews in US history.
Robert Gregory Bowers, who was wounded in a gun battle with police during the rampage, was released from hospital in the morning and a few hours later was wheeled into the courtroom. He was ordered to be held without bail for a preliminary hearing on Thursday, when prosecutors will outline their case against him.
During the court appearance, Bowers talked with two court-appointed lawyers, went over documents and confirmed his identity to a judge, saying little more than "Yes" in a soft voice a few times. Courtroom deputies freed one of his hands from cuffs so he could sign paperwork. He did not enter a plea.
He remained expressionless.
"It was not the face of villainy that I thought we'd see," said Jon Pushinsky, a congregant at Dor Hadash, which lost one of its members to the massacre. Mr Pushinsky was one of two Dor Hadash congregants at the hearing.
Federal prosecutors set in motion plans to seek the death penalty against the 46-year-old truck driver, who authorities say expressed hatred of Jews during his attack and later told police, "I just want to kill Jews" and "All these Jews need to die".
After the hearing, US Attorney Scott Brady called the shootings "horrific acts of violence" and added: "Rest assured we have a team of prosecutors working hard to ensure that justice is done."
The first funeral - for Cecil Rosenthal and his younger brother, David - was set for today.
Survivors, meanwhile, started giving harrowing accounts of the mass shooting on Saturday inside Tree of Life Synagogue.
Barry Werber (76) said he found himself hiding in a dark storage closet as the gunman tore through the building.
"I don't know why he thinks the Jews are responsible for all the ills in the world, but he's not the first and he won't be the last," Mr Werber said. "Unfortunately, that's our burden to bear. It breaks my heart."
The White House announced President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will visit Pennsylvania today "to express the support of the American people and to grieve with the Pittsburgh community".
The response to Mr Trump's plans has been mixed.
Leaders of a liberal Jewish group in Pittsburgh wrote an open letter to the president saying he was not welcome until he denounced white nationalism. But Jeffrey Myers, rabbi with the Tree of Life synagogue, told NB:, "It would be my honour to always meet a president of the United States."
The massacre - which took place 10 days before the midterm elections - heightened tensions around the country, coming just a day after the arrest of the Florida man accused of sending a wave of pipe bombs to Trump critics.
The mail bomb attacks and the bloodshed in Pittsburgh set off debate over whether the corrosive political climate in Washington and beyond contributed to the violence and whether Mr Trump himself bears any blame because of his combative language.
Mr Werber noted the president has embraced the politically fraught label of "nationalist", adding the Nazis were nationalists.
"It's part of his programme to instigate his base," Mr Werber said, and "bigots are coming out of the woodwork".
Bowers killed eight men and three women before a police tactical team shot him.
He was charged with obstructing the exercise of religious beliefs resulting in death - a hate crime - and using a gun to commit murder, criminal homicide, aggravated assault and ethnic intimidation.

Golden State’s Klay Thompson Sets 3-Pointer Record in Blowout Win

It was only a matter of time before Klay Thompson would get hot. The (other) sharpshooting guard of the Golden State Warriors, Thompson ended his season-long slump in a huge way, setting an N. B. A. record with 14 3-pointers on his way to 52 points in just 26 minutes on Monday night.
The Warriors — probably needless to say — beat the host Chicago Bulls, 149-124, dominating so thoroughly that they pulled all of their starters with 4 minutes 53 seconds left in the third quarter.
For Thompson, the performance was a relief, even if it was not all that big of a surprise. Through the Warriors’ first seven games, he had shot just 5 for 36 from 3-point range, an unsettling development for a player who came into the season with a 42.2 percent career success rate from behind the arc. Theories ranged from his pending free agency to his off-season beard being the culprit for his struggles, but Thompson, as shooters so often do, simply shot his way out of a slump.
Once Thompson got hot, his teammates started feeding him the ball and watching the show. The formula has worked in previous games: one in which Thompson scored 60 points (in just 29 minutes) and another in which he recorded a 37-point quarter.
Against Chicago, Thompson shot 18 of 29 over all and 14 of 24 from 3-point range, repeatedly finding space on the floor off the sharp passes of Draymond Green, Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry. It became almost routine that once Thompson got the ball, he let it fly with confidence rarely seen outside of a Golden State game, and he broke the previous record of 13 3-pointers, which Curry set in 2016.
“Even before I went out for the second half, Steph looked at the box score and said, ‘Go get it,’ ” Thompson said of the record. “That just shows the unselfishness that is within him.”
The only thing that slowed Thompson was a collision with his teammate Damian Jones in the third quarter that opened a cut on his head.
Thompson needed two stitches to close the wound after the game, but in the moment insisted on staying in the game. He put a bright yellow headband over the cut so it would not violate N. B. A. rules for bleeding.
That Thompson was gunning for a record owned by Curry added to the game’s entertainment value. Curry, a two-time winner of the N. B. A.’s Most Valuable Player Award, came into the game as the league’s leading scorer, but after Thompson set a record with 10 3-pointers in the first half, Curry repeatedly sent the ball his way in the second half trying to get him to 14.
Curry, whose record streak of games with at least five 3-pointers ended at seven, got the assist for Thompson’s 13th 3-pointer; Durant assisted on No. 14. Joking with reporters after the game, Durant took full credit for Thompson’s brilliance.
“The most important thing about tonight is that I passed it to him for his 14th,” Durant said. “And I also passed it to Steph for his 13th 3 last time, so, yeah, they wouldn’t have made those shots without me.”
(Durant’s attempt to take credit fell just short: Green, not Durant, assisted on Curry’s record-setting shot.)
The game could have been far worse for the Bulls. The Warriors scored 92 points in the first half — the second most an N. B. A. team had scored in a first half — with Curry being almost an afterthought despite having 23 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals in the half. He did not score in the second half as he and Durant (14 points) each had season lows for scoring, repeatedly deferring to Thompson. Green scored just three points and Jones, the team’s fifth starter, scored two.
The pace slowed once the starters were pulled from the game, and the Warriors were actually outscored by the Bulls, 55-36, the rest of the way, but Golden State still ended up setting a franchise record for team 3-pointers with 24.

Pittsburgh mayor: Our priority is funerals not Trump’s visit

The mayor of Pittsburgh suggested that President Trump choose a different time to visit the city rather than the day of the first of 11 funerals for the victims of the synagogue shooting.
Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto (D) told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Monday that he tried to tell the White House they the city's priority on Tuesday will be the first funeral — not Trump’s visit.
“I do believe that it would be best to put the attention on the families this week and if he were to visit choose a different time to be able to do it,” Peduto said. “Our focus as a city will be on the families and the outreach they will need this week and the support they’ll need to get through it.”
The president and first lady Melania Trump are scheduled to travel to Pennsylvania on Tuesday in the wake of Saturday’s mass shooting at Tree of Life synagogue.
Trump told Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Monday night that he was going to pay his respects.
“I’m also going to the hospital to see the officers and some of the people that were so badly hurt,” Trump said. “I really look forward to going. I would have done it even sooner, but I didn’t want to disrupt anymore than they already had disruption.”
His visit to the city has been meet with some backlash. A group of progressive Jewish leaders penned an open letter on Sunday telling the president he is not welcome until he denounces white nationalism.
More than 57,000 people have signed a petition as of Monday night from the group, the Pittsburgh affiliate of Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice, telling Trump he's not welcome in the city.
The Tree of Life synagogue's rabbi, however, said that Trump is “always welcome.”
“I’m a citizen. He's my president. He is certainly welcome,” Rabbi Jeffrey Myers said Monday.
Eleven congregants were killed on Saturday after a gunman opened fire, allegedly yelling, “All Jews must die.”
The Anti-Defamation League said the shooting was likely the deadliest attack on Jewish people in U. S. history.
The accused perpetrator is in custody and has been charged with 29 counts, including multiple hate crimes.

Conspiracy Theories Make ‘Blaming Jews for Problems’ Easy - Labor Organizer

Bowers, 46, was arraigned on Monday and faces 29 felony charges, including 11 counts of murder with a hate crime enhancement, and prosecutors have indicated they will seek the federal death penalty. US Attorney Scott Brady noted that Bowers told officers when he was arrested, "They're committing genocide to my people. I just want to kill Jews."
Bowers' comments reflect a common belief among white nationalists and neo-Nazis. For example, at the August 2017 "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, which featured a Who's Who of alt-right, fascist and white supremacist groups, attendees chanted, "Jews will not replace us."
The shooting comes only days after a bomb was found by the US Postal Service addressed to George Soros, a Jewish billionaire businessman, investor and philanthropist who lives in New York. Numerous allegations have been levied against Soros for his political contributions, including that he pays demonstrators to protest in what are colloquially known as "astroturf" movements, or artificial movements that mimic grassroots struggles borne out of community self-organization.
Radio Sputnik's Loud and Clear spoke with Mindy Isser, a labor organizer and member of the Jewish community in the Philadelphia area, about the type of anti-Semitism seen in the past week and its increasing prominence in American society.
"People hate Jews. And the same people who hate Jews, they also hate black people, they hate Muslims, they hate anyone who is not white and male, and I think something about anti-Semitism that functions, in some ways, differently than other oppressions is that it sort of diverts blame from the ruling class onto Jews, especially individual Jews. So maybe this guy has had a hard life and is economically oppressed… but if anything has gone wrong in his personal life, instead of looking at the system that we all live in, that's oppressive and exploitative, he's taught to look at Jews as the root of his problem. That's how anti-Semitism functions. So it makes sense that people are feeling emboldened, empowered to attack Jews these days."
Isser, who has been a union organizer for five years, said she "has worked on different campaigns with different kinds of workers in different industries, and one thing I found that's a constant and really interesting is [that] many different members of our class talk about the Rothschilds, talk about the Illuminati and all of these conspiracies that kind of put Jewish people at the forefront, as the cause of why they're poor and why they're oppressed, and blame this mysterious Jewish group for all of their problems. I think it's really difficult to have those conversations with people because, on the one hand, yes it's true there is a group that is the cause of all of our problems, so that part is true. But it's not the Jews, it's the capitalists, and trying to have that conversation can be really painful and really difficult as a Jewish person. But I think more and more now — obviously anti-Semitism has been around forever — but with Trump in the White House and white nationalists running for office unapologetically, it's easy for people to be open about hating Jews and blaming Jews for their problems."
Isser told hosts Brian Becker and John Kiriakou that she was recently sending text messages in support of a ballot initiative in Maine, and one response she received was "stop sending me this George Soros socialism stuff, I don't wanna hear it, long live President Trump."
"That's the reality of the world we're living in," Isser said.
While noting that she agreed with an assessment by the Anti-Defamation League that "anti-Semitism has become mainstream" in American society, such as with the prevalence of conspiracy theories about Soros, Isser distanced herself from the ADL because she said it violates one of her primary maxims as a labor organizer — "an injury to one is an injury to all" — by being "anti-Muslim and anti-Palestinian, and I don't want to be aligned with that."
Isser said that "the right is blaming any kind of left or even liberal protesting or demonstrating or organizing on George Soros, as if he is just this very rich — which he is, of course — Jewish man with magical powers and is paying all of us and controlling all of us and making all of us get out in the streets, as if we wouldn't be doing it without his existence."
Becker noted that, while it's true that Soros is very closely aligned with the Democratic Party establishment and donates large amounts of money to organizations that encourage certain pro-Democratic types of political action, "95 or more percent of the demonstrations in this country against Trump's policies" are not orchestrated by Soros; the idea of Soros as a puppeteering mastermind is "false; that's actually ‘fake news.'"
Isser said, "I feel like the right-wing has been using calls of anti-Semitism really cynically for a long time around people like me who support the BDS [Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel] movement, and now when there's actual anti-Semitism happening, they're silent. And that's its own kind of anti-Semitism: this kind of deep obsession with Jews returning to Israel because they're just evangelicals, [but] who actually hate us and want to see us destroyed. So I think that's important to raise up… I don't believe in ethno-states; no one asked me if I wanted my own state. I don't believe in oppressing people on the basis of their religion or ethnicity, and the state of Israel goes against everything I was taught to think about Judaism and know about Judaism."

HAWORTH: Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting, And The Battle Between Idealism And Realism

The shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue Saturday morning has sparked the return of the infamous American gun debate. While this seems to divide the country by those who are pro-gun and anti-gun, it actually divides the country by the idealistic and the realistic.
Anti-semitism is a brutal reality, something I have personally experienced on multiple occasions. Growing up, I had an idealistic view of the world and those around me, believing that all people are inherently good. Therefore, I struggled to rationalize and explain the anti-semitic abuse I faced.
As time passed, I saw beyond my youthful and insular viewpoint, and became aware of unjustifiable hatred against others. Hateful language and actions against people based purely on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, political affiliation, or religion. The hatred was baseless and without reason. The truth became clear. You cannot rationalize the irrational. Some are consumed by hatred for no logical reason, and some even act upon their hatred. This was the recognition of reality. Idealistically, we hope to eradicate evil. Realistically, evil will always exist, and when this is accepted, we can take steps to combat it.
The reported scenes outside the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh are beyond horrifying. Initial reports suggest that a lone gunman entered a morning service while screaming “all Jews must die”, and proceeded to open fire. At least eight people were murdered inside the synagogue. The shooter also killed three police officers who arrived at the scene.
Humans are inherently reactionary, basing their immediate response on emotion instead of information. When something terrible happens, the idealistic part of us tries to rationalize: why? This was the idealism of my youth as I struggled with anti-semitism. Unfortunately, this idealistic attempt to rationalize the irrational is hopeless, and idealism blinds us to the reality that individual hatred leads to unreasonable individual action. Our desire to answer the question of why often leads many to blame the tools used to perpetrate the evil.
The media have become experts at peddling this emotional response to appalling events in order to immediately push an anti-gun political agenda. Trump is being reported to have said that “Pittsburgh synagogue should have had armed guards”. His actual quote was “If they had some kind of a protection inside the temple maybe it could have been a very much different situation”. They oddly ignore the fact that Trump was responding to a direct question about whether the attack would affect gun laws in the USA.
The idealistic and reactionary support for increased gun legislation is fundamentally flawed. We do not yet know any core facts about the shooter’s motives or background. Were the guns legally obtained? Were there red flags? Without answering key questions, it is unclear that additional legislation would have helped. Eagerness to support increased legislation and weaken the Second Amendment without supporting evidence is another example of complete disregard for reality, misplaced faith in government, and the dismissal of personal responsibility.
The Second Amendment was written with a realistic, not idealistic, worldview. The idealistic worldview assumes that the government is a trustworthy figure, and that all laws are enforced and obeyed. The realistic worldview believes that governments are as fallible as the humans who run them, and that laws alone are nothing more than paper handcuffs on the wrists of irrational evil. By constricting the ability for the good to carry, we only increase the chance of their victimization by the bad.
The idealistic among us scoff at the idea of any modern government becoming tyrannical. The same naive view was held of Germany before Hitler came to power. In Nazi Germany, the 1938 Regulations Against Jews’ Possession of Weapons was enforced, depriving Jews of any ability to possess weapons to protect themselves. This destruction of rights played a part in the atrocities that followed, showing that to put complete faith in government is to be at the complete mercy of the government. History has proven that government is never the answer when it comes to ultimate protection of the individual. In a world where you cannot account for the evils of others, you (and not the government) are the gatekeeper to your own wellbeing.
Looking specifically at this revolting attack on the synagogue in Pittsburgh, it is clear that in the reality of our world, anti-semitism exists. There is no moral legislation that could stop someone who is determined to kill Jews. Banning guns will mean that Jews are stabbed. Banning knives will mean that Jews are beaten to death with sticks and rocks. This is not hyperbole. This is historical fact.
The realistic reaction is to accept that anti-semitism exists, and fight the threat as empowered Jews, not victimized Jews. That may mean stronger security at all Jewish buildings across the country. That may mean metal detectors, locked gates, security cameras, and armed guards. Idealistically, it is dreadful that this must even be discussed. Realistically, the threat is real, and we must face this reality instead of hiding behind idealistic denial that guns are the root of the problem.
While Trump’s quote was willingly misreported, ultimately he is correct. Those who accept reality must advocate for the right for the good in our society to be permitted to exercise their Second Amendment right to protect themselves and their communities from the bad. If qualified members of Jewish communities wish to carry weapons, then we may not be resigned to the role of helpless victims when the inevitability of anti-semitism rears its ugly head.
Idealistically, we can end anti-semitism. Realistically, we can prepare for it.

Synagogue Shooting Victims Remembered At Skokie Vigil

CHICAGO (CBS)–Hundreds of mourners attended a vigil Monday night at Temple Beth Israel in north suburban Skokie to honor the people killed at the “Tree of Life” Synagogue in Pittsburgh on Saturday.
Skokie is home to one of the largest Jewish populations in the Chicago area. The guests lit 11 candles for the number of people killed in the mass shooting.
Among the victims were Cecil and David Rosenthal. The siblings, who worked as greeters at the door of the synagogue on the day of the shooting, are brothers of Diane Rosenthal Hirt–a member of a Lombard synagogue.
The first funerals for the victims begin Tuesday.
During a vigil tonight, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf called for unity when he made the following remarks:
“We must recognize our common humanity as we live our lives. We must celebrate that common humanity while we rejoice in the distinctions that enrich our lives, enrich our communities, enrich our families.” o

South Carolina executes man convicted of killing correctional officer

Oct. 29 (UPI) -- South Dakota executed a man who killed a correctional officer during a failed prison escape in 2011.
Rodney Berget, 56, was executed by lethal injection and pronounced dead at 7:37 p.m. after six years of court delays and a delay of more than five hours on Monday.
Berget was sentenced to death for killing Ron "R. J." Johnson while he had been serving a life sentence for an attempted murder and kidnapping conviction.
The other inmate who attempted to escape the prison, Eric Robert, was executed in 2012 after pleading guilty and Michael Nordman was sentenced to life in prison for providing the plastic wrap and pipe used in the killing.
Berget's execution was scheduled for 1:30 p.m., but was delayed as attorney Juliet Yackel appealed on the grounds Berget was intellectually disabled. Over the weekend Berget filed an affadavit saying he had told Yackel that he has "not authorized her to submit anything to the court on his behalf" and didn't want to contest the execution.
At 6:30 p.m. Attorney General Marty Jackley said Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch denied the appeal.
Berget began his final words at 7:29 p.m and began with a joke, witnesses said.
"Sorry for the delay," he said. "I got caught in traffic."
Johnson's wife, Lynette Johnson, thanked those who worked on the case while noting Berget was granted a more peaceful death than her husband.
"They broke his neck, they severed fingers, broke his wrists, he didn't have the back of his head... that's cruel and unusual punishment," she said. "What Berget went through ... peaceful, clean, sterile, dignified."

Naftali Bennett to offer Israeli aid to U. S. Jewish leaders

Diaspora Affairs Minister Naftali Bennett will meet with top US Jewish leaders in New York on Tuesday to hear their views on what the Israeli government can do to protect American Jews and fight antisemitism. Bennett spoke to The Jerusalem Post from Pittsburgh, the site of the murder of 11 worshipers during Saturday morning services at the Tree of Life synagogue. He indicated that he did not believe Israel would end up posting guards at synagogues.

Trump blames media for ‘division and hatred’ in US

Washington: US President Donald Trump blamed the media once again Monday for “division and hatred” in the country as Americans took stock of a gunman’s attack on a Pittsburgh synagogue that killed 11 worshippers.
“The Fake News is doing everything in their power to blame Republicans, Conservatives and me for the division and hatred that has been going on for so long in our Country,” he said on Twitter.
“There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news,” Trump continued. “The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly.
“That will do much to put out the flame of Anger and Outrage and we will then be able to bring all sides together in Peace and Harmony. Fake News Must End!”
Trump had initially called for unity in the face of Saturday’s assault on the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, in a week in which prominent Democrats were the targets of pipe bombs sent through the mail, allegedly by a Trump supporter in Florida.
But he quickly reverted to form, attacking the media and potential Democratic rivals for the presidency at a rally and on Twitter as Americans looked forward to crucial midterm elections November 6.
In an open letter Sunday, a group of Jewish leaders from Pittsburgh said Trump bore responsibility for encouraging white nationalist sentiments that led to the synagogue attack.
“For the past three years your words and your policies have emboldened a growing white nationalist movement. You yourself called the murderer evil, but yesterday’s violence is the direct culmination of your influence,” the open letter said.
The signers said that until Trump fully denounced white nationalism he would not be welcome in Pittsburgh.
However, Jeffrey Myers, a Tree of Life rabbi who was in the synagogue when the heavily armed gunman burst in on worshippers, said Trump would be welcome if he visited.
“The president of the United States is always welcome. I’m a citizen. He’s my president. He is certainly welcome,” Myers said on CNN.

Klay Thompson Broke Out Of His Slump With 22 First Quarter Points

The Golden State Warriors opened the season winning six of their first seven games and, in short, there isn’t much to worry about for the NBA’s best team. However, Klay Thompson struggled mightily with his jump shot in the team’s opening stretch and, even if there was plenty of reason to believe he would bounce back, the All-Star guard didn’t seem to be in a good flow.
On Monday evening, though, Thompson broke out of his slump in a big way, bludgeoning the Chicago Bulls, whose team defense is a great remedy for anyone struggling, in the first quarter.
Thompson had everything going and, when his initial onslaught was over, the sharp-shooting guard had 22 points.

Race on as Merkel opens path for succession

Angela Merkel's bombshell announcement of her plans to step down as German chancellor in 2021 has unleashed a succession race that will be watched closely within Germany and beyond.
Merkel on Monday said she would not stand for re-election in December as leader of her centre-right CDU party. Neither would she seek a new mandate as Germany's leader.
She hoped her decision would end the strife that threatened so often to tear her loveless coalition apart, and focus the government on its task of running Europe's biggest economy.
The planned departure of the veteran chancellor, in power for 13 years and at the helm of her party for 18, set hopefuls jostling for position as her successor.
File pictures of three likely Christian Democratic Union party candidates to replace the veteran German chancellor: North Rhine-Westphalia state premier Armin Laschet; Health Minister Jens Spahn and CDU general secretary Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer
After she outlined her intentions to party top brass, three candidates reportedly indicated their plans to stand for the job, including CDU general secretary Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, health minister Jens Spahn and former chief of the party's parliamentary group Friedrich Merz.
Another name touted by German media as a likely fourth is Armin Laschet, who is also the state premier of Germany's most populous region North Rhine-Westphalia.
Laschet told reporters Monday he has not declared his candidacy as it was "more important at this time to reflect, to see what (Merkel's departure) means for the party and how the party can be kept united."
For Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung columnist Berthold Kohler, the chancellor has played a well-timed move.
"Merkel has done well to give up the party chair post. The CDU has been revived," he wrote.
- Waning power -
Merkel had enjoyed the support of Germans as a guarantor of stability and prosperity, having steered the country through financial crises and keeping Europe's biggest economy humming with unemployment striking post-reunification record lows month after month.
German Chancellor Merkel's power has been on the wane since her 2015 decision to keep Germany's borders open at the height of Europe's migrant crisis, ultimately allowing in more than one million asylum seekers
But her power has been on the wane since her 2015 decision to keep Germany's borders open at the height of Europe's migrant crisis, ultimately allowing in more than one million asylum seekers.
The mass arrivals left a deep chasm in German society, and fuelled the rise of the far-right AfD, fundamentally redrawing the political map.
While Merkel has essentially given her party three years to put the succession in place, her departure may yet be precipitated if her junior coalition partner, the Social Democratic Party, loses patience and pulls the plug prematurely.
Merkel's party and their Bavarian CSU allies been at the receiving end of voter anger -- be it stemming from the migrant influx or bickering within the coalition. The SPD in particular has recorded a haemorrhage of voters.
Plummeting support for the SPD has left the party torn internally over its decision to join the government.
After a drubbing at two regional polls in as many weeks, the SPD has signalled it may walk away if Merkel's centre-right alliance of CDU and Bavarian allies CSU fails to meet its demands.
By September 2019, the party "will be able to see whether this government is still the right place for us", SPD chief Andrea Nahles said.
With the new CDU chief to be elected by the party as soon as December, it remains to be seen if Merkel's successor would be able to keep the SPD in the coalition until the next general elections, due in 2021.
While Kramp-Karrenbauer is a Merkel loyalist and likely to continue on her moderate path, Spahn or Merz could shift the party further to the right, making cohabitation tougher with the centre-left SPD.
Merkel herself has shied away from naming a successor.
"I will accept any democratic decision taken by my party," she said.

Trump: Alleged mail bomber was ‘insane for a long time’

WASHINGTON – Pipe bomb-mailing suspect Cesar Sayoc was “insane for a long time” before he launched his package spree, President Trump said on Fox News Channel Monday night.
The president was trying to distance himself from Sayoc, a Trump supporter who allegedly mailed pipe bombs to the president’s political foes, including Bill and Hillary Clinton, former President Obama, Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, Democratic donor George Soros and CNN.
“He was insane a long time before,” Trump told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham. “You look at his medical records – he was insane for a long time.”
Trump pointed out how in media reports Sayoc was referred to as the “Trump bomber or something.”
“I was in the headline of the Washington Post, my name associated with this crazy bomber,” Trump said. “But I was the headline… when they got him. They didn’t say ‘bomber found’ they talked about Trump in the headline.”
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had criticized the Washington Post on Sunday for linking Trump to both the spat of mailed bombs and Pittsburgh’s deadly synagogue attack. The front page headline of the bomber story read, “Bomb suspect found an inspiration in Trump.”
Trump pointed out that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) wasn’t portrayed as being responsible for the gunman – a Sanders supporter – who shot up a Republican Congressional Baseball Game practice in 2017, wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.)
“They didn’t do that with President Obama with the church, the horrible situation with the church,” Trump continued. “They didn’t do that.”
Obama was president in June 2015, when a white supremacist shot black worshippers at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston.
“They put my name in the headlines,” Trump said. “It’s – when I say ‘enemy of the people’ – I’m talking about the fake news and it is fake.”

Academic on Brazilian Election Results: Lula Should've Been Allowed to Run

On the other hand he is part of a process where he emerges as a candidate who has captured the conservative voters who have felt threatened with changes in Brazil in the last decades. At the same time he captures voters who are disillusioned with the whole process of democracy and traditional parties.
It’s very unlikely that his government is going to be tackling inequality; he may make matters even worse and could exacerbate the conflict that already exists.
There is a sense now that the public opinion is that he is a political prisoner and he should have been allowed to run.
Bolsonaro is a product of both a lot of dissatisfaction with representative democracy and to some extent with liberal democracy, similar to what’s happening around the world regarding Trump for instance.
This is very particular to the Brazilian reality; where there is a lot of fear regarding change and the ways in which a lot of his supporters talk about communism and are very much nostalgic of the dictatorship years, this is something very particular to Brazil, so in that sense he’s very different to a more right wing politician in the European sense or even in relation to Trump.

Jamal Khashoggi Had Been Planning Report On Saudi Arabia’s Use Of Chemical Weapons In Yemen, ‘Express’ Reports

New information from a close friend of murdered Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi indicates that he may have had proof that the Saudi government was making use of chemical warfare in their proxy war in Yemen.
According to the Express UK, the Middle Eastern academic, who asked not to be named, had spoken with Khashoggi a week before his murder, and stated that the journalist had seemed “unhappy and worried.” After a bit of prying, he had revealed that he was about to receive “documentary evidence” that the Saudis are using chemical weapons on both military persons and civilians in Yemen.
“When I asked him why he was worried, he didn’t really want to reply, but eventually he told me he was getting proof that Saudi Arabia had used chemical weapons. He said he hoped to be getting documentary evidence. All I can tell you is that the next thing I heard, he was missing.”
This is not the first time the issue of chemical warfare by the Saudis in Yemen has been brought up. Iran previously claimed that Saudi Arabia was supplying the ingredients needed to make the nerve agent Sarin gas, but those claims have been unsubstantiated. It is speculated that the likelihood is that Khashoggi had received intelligence that Saudi Arabia has been using phosphorus.
Read carefully Express report. Suggestion that #JamalKhashoggi was about to reveal evidence Saudi used #ChemicalWeapons in Yemen provides new narrative. But lets be clear, Saudi committed war crimes with or without CWs.
— Fadi Al-Qadi (@fqadi) October 28,2018
Just last month, there were whispers that the Saudis were using U. S.-supplied white phosphorus munitions on both soldiers and civilians in Yemen.
There are regulations that allow for the chemical to be used as a “smokescreen,” but other uses of it could burn flesh all the way down to the bone.
Chemical warfare expert Col Hamish de Bretton-Gordon spoke of the devastation that the practice unleashes.
“We have already seen in Syria that nothing is as effective as chemical weapons in clearing urban areas of troops and civilians – Assad has used phosphorous for this very reason. If Khashoggi did, in fact, have proof that Saudi Arabia was deliberately misusing phosphorous for this purpose, it would be highly embarrassing for the regime and provides the nearest motive yet as to why Riyadh may have acted when they did against him.”
Khashoggi, who had made an appointment at the Saudi Arabian Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, in order to get documents he needed in order to marry his fiancee, never came out of the consulate, leading to weeks of speculation about his sudden disappearance on October 2 before the Saudis last week confessed he had been murdered in a premeditated attack.

WATCH: Leftist Claims Trump Has 'Radicalized' More People Than ISIS, Panel Explodes

Far-left writer Julia Ioffe claimed on CNN that President Donald Trump has "radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did," which prompted outrage from the panel.
Ioffe, who was previously fired from Politico after she suggested Trump was "f***ing his daughter" Ivanka, blamed the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting over the weekend on Trump and conservative political commentator Glenn Beck.
"I think this president, one of the things that he really launched his presidential run on is talking about Islamic radicalization," Ioffe said on CNN’s "The Lead" with Jake Tapper. "And this president has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did. I mean, the way he talks, the way he — the way he —"
"That is, it's unconscionable for you to say that," commentator David Urban responded.
"The way that he talks, the way that he allows these — the way he winks and nods to these groups," Ioffe continued. "The way he says, 'I know I’m not supposed to say it, but I’m a nationalist.' The way that he hems and haws when he has to condemn these people, gritting his teeth says, says 'fine, OK, I condemn this.'"
"Jake, for you not to push back on that — for her to say the president of the United States has radicalized more people than ISIS is irresponsible,” Urban asserted.
Later in the show, Tapper stated that the Republican National Committee (RNC) was pouncing on Ioffe's blatantly false claims, so he allowed her a chance to "clarify" her statement.
"We have a little house cleaning because the Republican National Committee is jumping on your comments — you earlier in the show said that Donald Trump has radicalized more people than ISIS has… you wanted to clarify," Tapper said.
Ioffe then apologized for "exaggerating."

Pharrell Williams not ‘Happy’ hit song played at Donald Trump rally hours after Pittsburgh synagogue massacre

Pharrell Williams isn’t too happy with US President Donald Trump.
A lawyer for the musician filed a cease and desist letter against the president Monday after Trump used Williams’ song Happy during a political rally in Indiana Saturday.
“On the day of the mass murder of 11 human beings at the hands of a deranged ‘nationalist’, you played his song Happy to a crowd at a political event in Indiana,” the letter, acquired by The New York Daily News, reads.
“There was nothing ‘happy’ about the tragedy inflicted upon our country on Saturday and no permission was granted for your use of this song for this purpose.”
Williams also said Trump is not allowed to use any of his music without permission.
Robert Bowers, 46, could face the death penalty after being accused of shooting and killing 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue Saturday.
His victims range from 54 to 97 years old.
Several musicians have found issue with the president’s use of their songs, including Steven Tyler, Adele, Earth, Wind & Fire and Queen.

Trump: ‘Dishonest’ to say I called all media ‘enemy of the people’

President Trump on Monday evening tweeted that it is "dishonest" to say he called all media "the enemy of the people," pointing out that he frequently differentiates between the "fake news" and "media" in general.
He called out CNN specifically in the tweet, days after one of his supporters mailed a crude pipe bomb to CNN's offices in New York City.
"CNN and others in the Fake News Business keep purposely and inaccurately reporting that I said the 'Media is the Enemy of the People,'" Trump tweeted. "Wrong! I said that the 'Fake News (Media) is the Enemy of the People,' a very big difference. When you give out false information - not good!"
"Check out tweets from last two days," he added. "I refer to Fake News Media when mentioning Enemy of the People - but dishonest reporters use only the word 'Media.' The people of our Great Country are angry and disillusioned at receiving so much Fake News. They get it, and fully understand!"
Trump has faced widespread criticism for a Monday tweet in which he referred to "Fake News Media" as "the true Enemy of the People" in the wake of a violent week that saw a spate of over a dozen bombs mailed, including one to CNN, and a shooting that killed 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue.
The suspected mail-bomber was an ardent Trump supporter who has been pictured holding a "CNN sucks" sign and had anti-CNN, anti-Democrat stickers on his van. He targeted high-profile Democrats who Trump has frequently mocked or scorned publicly.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during a Monday afternoon press briefing declined to say which outlets the president considers "fake news."
The president during a Monday night interview with Fox News's Laura Ingraham continued to deride specific media outlets, calling out NBC's "Meet the Press" and The Washington Post.
"I watched Meet the Press this weekend -- everything was so falsely put, putting words in people’s mouths," Trump said, and later pointed out that a specific Washington Post headline linked him to the bombing suspect.

Australia's ex-PM warns Jerusalem move would worry Indonesia

A former Australia n prime minister has warned the government to expect a negative reaction from Indonesia if Australia follows the United States by shifting its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull spoke to reporters after meeting Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo on the tourist island of Bali on Monday to discuss a bilateral free trade deal.
"The president expressed to me... the very serious concern held in Indonesia about the prospect of the Australian Embassy in Israel being moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem," Turnbull told Australian Broadcasting Corp. in an interview aired on Tuesday. "There's no question that were that move to occur, it would be met with a very negative reaction in Indonesia."
"This is after all the largest ... majority-Muslim country in the world, so we have to be very clear-eyed about that and we have to take into account Australia's national interest and our interests in the region when we ... consider decisions like this," he added.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Tuesday no decision had been made yet on the embassy's location.
Morrison sent his predecessor to represent Australia at a climate change conference in Bali because of Turnbull's close personal rapport with the Indonesian leader, who had been disappointed that Turnbull's government colleagues replaced him in August in response to poor opinion polling.
Turnbull said he was confident that the free trade deal between Australia, a nation of 25 million people, and Indonesia, a near-neighbor with a population of more than 260 million people, would be signed within weeks.
Turnbull also said Australia should stick with a policy of more than 40 years that its embassy should be in Tel Aviv.
Morrison, a long-time ally of Turnbull who had argued against replacing him in a leadership ballot of government lawmakers, floated the idea of shifting the embassy days before a by-election in a Sydney electorate with a large Jewish population.
The government lost the by-election, forced by Turnbull's resignation from Parliament, and its single-seat majority in the House of Representatives.
"Australia will always make our decisions on our foreign policy based on our interests and we'll do that as a sovereign nation," Morrison told reporters.
We'll consult, we'll listen to others, but at the end of the day... I will always put our interests first," he added.
The Trump administration turned its back on decades of U. S. policy last December by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and in May, it moved the U. S. Embassy from Tel Aviv. The decision angered the Muslim world and was a setback for Palestinian aspirations for statehood. Palestinians see east Jerusalem, captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war, as the capital of a future independent state.
Morrison said Australia remained committed to finding a two-state solution.
When Morrison became prime minister, he made his first overseas trip to Indonesia, an ardent supporter of the Palestinian cause, in a sign of the importance Australia places on the bilateral relationship.

This teenager wins Halloween with his Blackhawks-themed costume

Most sports fanatics aren’t too thrilled to sit on the bench, but one teen says that’s where all the action is.
Luke Fanella got an early start to his Halloween with a new homemade costume: the Blackhawks bench, ABC 7 first reported .
Fanella is featured as a player in the getup, seated between Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, who are also on “the bench.” He’s wearing a full hockey uniform with screaming fans (his family) cheering behind the glass — also included in the Halloween costume.
The 14-year-old told ABC 7 he was inspired by the camaraderie that takes place between players on the Blackhawks bench and that his wish was to “be that kid that got to sit on the bench during their warmups and give them all knuckles and high-fives.”
Fanella will get to live out that dream and share a dose of Halloween spirit while celebrating the holiday in Naperville. His costume was specially made by his Uncle Jim DelGenio who has made the teen’s Blackhawks-themed costume in the past, ABC 7 reports.
Last Halloween, Fanella gained national attention when he dressed as the hockey team’s ice-resurfacing machine. The Blackhawks even invited him to ride the real Zamboni during a game. Fanella has a muscle disorder that requires use of a wheelchair. His uncle just incorporates the wheelchair into the costumes.
Fanella told ABC 7 he’s happy to go all out for Halloween — a time when his disability isn’t a focus and he can just be “a regular kid out there for candy.”
We just spoke with Luke's family… he's coming to our game this weekend!
Can't wait to see him take our Zamboni out for a spin.

Police give 'all clear' after suspicious package reported at New York Times

Police responded to The New York Times headquarters on Monday night after a caller reported what appeared to be a suspicious package.
An employee in the mailroom discovered a suspicious envelope in the newsroom mailbox, The Times corporate communications office wrote in a note to employees Monday night.
The New York Police Department responded and removed the envelope from the building for further testing.
“The police have now told us that the package contained only papers and was harmless,” The Times told employees in the note obtained by The Hill.
The Times was notified by the FBI earlier Monday that an editor was on a list of potential targets regarding “last week’s rash of suspicious packages.”
Florida man Cesar Sayoc Jr., has been charged with sending 14 pipe bombs to prominent Democrats and CNN wrapped in manila envelopes with flag stamps.
He reportedly had a list of more than 100 people he planned to target.
He allegedly mailed explosive devices to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Obama, and progressive donor George Soros, among others.
None of the devices ever denoted and no injuries were reported in connection to the packages.
Sayoc also allegedly sent a bomb to CNN's offices in New York City, addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, who is a contributor to NBC News and MSNBC.
A second suspicious package addressed to CNN’s headquarters in Atlanta was intercepted at a post office nearby on Monday morning.

The Knicks Surge Past the Nets to End a Five-Game Skid

His mouth bloodied, Tim Hardaway Jr. ran to the locker room shortly before halftime on Monday night. Then he came back and helped the Knicks run all over the Nets.
Hardaway scored 25 points and tied a career high with eight assists, and the Knicks rolled to their second win of the season, beating the Nets, 115-96, at Madison Square Garden.
Frank Ntilikina added 16 points and Enes Kanter had 15 points and 15 rebounds off the bench for the Knicks, who had dropped five straight since beating Atlanta in their first game under Coach David Fizdale.
“He preaches competitors only when you step through these doors, so we can’t only preach it we’ve got to go out and do it,” Hardaway said after removing a bloodstained pad from his mouth so he could talk. “So we did it tonight.”
They ended their skid emphatically, outscoring the Nets by 59-41 over the middle two quarters and leading by as many as 25 points.
Spencer Dinwiddie scored 17 points for the Nets, who dropped their third straight. They were coming off a close loss to Golden State on Sunday, and either did not have legs left or did not put forth much effort, being beaten to loose balls and unable to slow the Knicks in transition in the third quarter. The Nets were 11 for 38 (29 percent) from 3-point range after making 44.3 percent over their previous five games
“We weren’t ready to play,” Coach Kenny Atkinson said. “We can look for excuses, but this is Game 5.” (It was actually Game 7.)
“This isn’t Game 74. We should have been more ready.”
The Nets beat the Knicks, 107-105, on Oct. 19 on Caris LeVert’s layup with a second to play. This time, LeVert was 2 for 11 for just four points.
The game began to swing just before halftime, when Hardaway had a couple of baskets in an 8-0 spurt that pushed a two-point edge to 52-42. He also was hit in the mouth during that time while drawing an offensive foul and ran to the locker room to have his lip glued so he could return for the second half.
When he did, the Knicks put it away quickly. The rookie Mitchell Robinson’s steal and dunk capped a quick run of six points that made it 58-44 and led to a Nets timeout that did nothing to halt the Knicks’ momentum. Hardaway made a 3-pointer and soon after threw one of his best passes, a lob that Robinson slammed to make it 69-48.
“I think Tim has always had the reputation that he’s just a gunner, and so I want to break that stereotype of him,” Fizdale said. “And to be an elite player in this league, you have to make other people better.”

Indonesia plane crash search finds remains, debris at sea

Search and rescue personnel worked through the night to find victims of the Lion Air plane crash in Indonesia, sending 24 body bags to identification experts as the airline flew dozens of grieving relatives to the country's capital.
The 2-month-old Boeing jet crashed into the Java Sea early Monday, just minutes after taking off from Jakarta, killing all 189 people on board.
The National Search and Rescue Agency said Tuesday that 10 intact bodies as well as body parts had been recovered. President Joko Widodo had ordered the search and rescue effort to continue through the night.
The disaster has reignited concerns about safety in Indonesia's fast-growing aviation industry, which was recently removed from European Union and U. S. blacklists.
Data pinged from the Boeing 737 Max 8 showed erratic speed, altitude and direction in the minutes after takeoff. Safety experts cautioned, however, that the data must be checked for accuracy against the plane's so-called black boxes, if they are recovered.
Specialist ships and a remotely operated underwater vehicle have been deployed to search for the plane's hull and flight recorder.
Distraught family members struggled to comprehend the sudden loss of loved ones in the crash of a plane with experienced pilots in fine weather .
"This is a very difficult time for our family," said Leo Sihombing, outside a crisis center set up for family members at Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta airport.
"We know that it is very unlikely that my cousin is still alive, but no one can provide any certainty or explanation," he said as other family members wept and hugged each other.
"What we hope now is rescuers can find his body, so we can bury him properly, and authorities can reveal what caused the plane crash," Sihombing said.
More than 300 people including soldiers, police and fishermen are involved in the grim search, retrieving aircraft debris and personal items such as a crumpled cellphone, ID cards and carry-on bags from the seas northeast of Jakarta.
Search and Rescue Agency chief Muhammad Syaugi has said he's certain it won't take long to locate the hull of the aircraft and its flight recorders due to the relatively shallow 30 meter (115 foot) depth of the waters where it crashed.

Kylie Jenner & Stormi Wear Matching Butterfly Costumes In Their Most Adorable Halloween Look

This has got to be the sexiest butterfly ever! Kylie Jenner is showing off her famous curves in a tiny pale pink bodysuit with matching butterfly wings for her latest Halloween getup. The 21-year-old initially just shared pics of herself in the outfit on Oct. 29, which looked painted on to her tiny waist, killer bust and famous derriere. Then she melted all of her fans’ hearts by showing off that she was matching her costume to her nearly nine-month-old daughter Stormi Webster. Baby daddy and BF Travis Scott is officially the luckiest man on Earth to have these two cuties in his life.
Ky shared the initial Instagram pic of her in the racy bodysuit while sitting on her bed, with her black and pink wings resting on her white bedspread. She showed off matching high heels with intricate strapping that had a pink butterfly where the laces finally ended halfway up her calf. She then gave fans a peek at her full on look, standing up and posing for a boomerang video that showed off her flawless figure.
Then Kylie reminded fans that she is a mother to an infant, posting a pic crouched on the ground with daughter Stormi on her knee wearing a matching butterfly costume. “My baby butterfly” the proud mom captioned the Instagram pic. Stormi has an adorable smile on her face as her loving mama simply beams at her daughter. Kylie then shared a pic of just Stormi sitting up on the bed with her pink onesie and wings on. Oh man her little girl is adorable.
It’s pretty impressive that Kylie would want anything to do with a butterfly since she’s admitted in the past that she’s terrified of them. In a 2017 episode of E!’s Life of Kylie, she confessed “Butterflies are just a part of the secrets of Kylie,” after a visit to the London Zoo’s butterfly exhibit “It’s kind of just ironic because I’m terrified, terrified of butterflies. All butterflies.” She added, “This is how I think of them, cut the wings off and if you just look at their bodies, they’re not that pretty. It’s literally a bug.”
Ky has warmed up to butterflies though. Travis has an album called Butterfly Effect and ever since she started dating him in May of 2017 she’s been more accepting of the “bugs” The reality star got a butterfly tattoo and Travis gave her butterfly-themed bling for her 20th birthday including a gold choker necklace with five diamond encrusted monarchs and two rings featuring diamond and sapphire covered winged creatures.

Trump Reveals What’ll Happen To People Trying To Apply For Asylum

President Donald Trump announced his intention to set up tent cities along the border for people who apply for asylum at the southern border during an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Monday night.
“What has been happening, and we’re not, as of pretty recently, we are not letting them out. What happens is they would catch and release. We are catching, we are not releasing, so they want to come over – but we’re not even doing that. We’re not letting them into this country. We’re not going to let gang members, –” the president said.
“What about applying for asylum?” Ingraham asked. (RELATED:Train Of Central American Migrants Swells In Number Despite Warnings From Trump)
“If they apply for asylum, we are going to hold them until such time their trial takes place,” Trump responded.
She followed up, “Where? Do we have the facilities?”

“We’re going to put up, we’re going to build tent cities. We’re going to put tents up all over the place. We aren’t going to build structures and spent all of these hundreds of millions of dollars,” the president added. “We are going to have tents, they are going to be very nice and they are going to wait and if they don’t get asylum they get out.”
The Pentagon announced Monday its plan to send 5,200 troops to the border to help with the potential influx with the caravan moving closer to the southern border.

There's A Daniel Webster Movie, So 'Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina' Fans Have More To Watch

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina knows it's horror history and loves to revel in it. From Sabrina and her friends seeing 1968's Night of the Living Dead in the theater to Roz and Susie watching 1962's Carnival of Souls at their sleepover, the movie references in this show are extensive. But none of the easter egg references are as massive as the one that shows up in episode 3 when Daniel Webster turns up as Sabrina's lawyer. He's straight out of a story of his own, and there's a Daniel Webster movie for Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina fans to check out once viewers are done binging the series. Warning: Spoilers for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 1 follow.
When Sabrina finds herself being dragged to Witch Court at the beginning of episode 3, Father Blackwood declares she is in breach of contract. She was promised to sign her name in the Book of the Beast on her 16th birthday, and she didn't do it. Sabrina, being a sensible sort, does what anyone headed to court would do. She hires a lawyer, one with a reputation of having beaten the devil himself. His name is Daniel Webster (John Rubenstein), and though he is initially reluctant, in the end, he takes the case.
But Chilling Adventures of Sabrina didn't make Daniel up out of whole cloth. Webster was a real person, who lived from January or 1782 to October of 1852. He served as a cabinet official, the Secretary of State to no less than three presidents (William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, and Millard Fillmore.) He also ran for President under the Whig Party three times, in 1836,1840, and 1852.
But what Webster was really famous for was his court cases. He was considered the top lawyer in the country in his day. He was a regular trial lawyer in Supreme Court cases, and according to his biographers, won literally half of them, setting federal precedences we take for granted to this day.
He was so famous as a lawyer, author ‎Steven Vincent Benét wrote a short story about him called " The Devil and Daniel Webster, " in which a man, Jabez Stone, sells his soul to the devil for the successes he has in life, only to realize he's been tricked. To defeat the Devil in court, he hires Daniel Webster.
Sound familiar? Chilling Adventures of Sabrina may have changed Daniel Webster's backstory to suit their own needs, but when Ambrose tells Sabrina Webster once beat the Devil in court, this is the story he's talking about.
In the 1940s, the short story, which was by then world famous, was turned into a movie, starring Edward Arnold as Daniel Webster, the greatest lawyer in the world. Walter Huston, the grandfather of Anjelica Huston, plays "Mr. Scratch" aka The Devil himself.
For those who are interested and want to see the court case that made Daniel Webster, now a resident of Greendale, world famous, it's available for streaming on FilmStruck, or for rent via Amazon and iTunes.

Synagogue shooting shatters sense of safety for Squirrel Hill's Jewish residents

PITTSBURGH — It was supposed to be Nancy Merenstein's first day back at synagogue after staying home to take care of her disabled husband for weeks. For the longtime resident of Squirrel Hill - the hub of Pittsburgh's dynamic Jewish community — Tree of Life synagogue has become a second home, one that reflected the neighborhood's communal spirit.
But she decided to stay with her husband for one more Saturday, even though it would mean she would miss the weekly lunch - challah, cheese, salads, tuna fish, dessert - shared by the synagogue's two main communities, Dor Hadash and Tree of Life. It was a fateful decision.
The synagogue would become the scene of the deadliest attack on Jews in U. S. history. Eleven were killed — including Merenstein's fellow Dor Hadash congregant Jerry Rabinowitz.
"My 24-year-old grandson was saying that this is the first example of his life in anti-Semitism. It's shocking to him. But not to me," said Merenstein, 80. "The times we live in now make me think about Nazi Germany and how Nazism arose among people. It scares me."
The deadly attack Saturday shattered the sense of peace and safety in Squirrel Hill. But the response has been true to the local spirit — politically spirited and resilient.
But the aftershocks have unsettled others throughout the nation. Generations removed from the horrors of the Holocaust, American Jews are now forced to deal with the kind of brutality that originally drove many of their families to the United States.
Lingering on the edges of the tragedy are age-old questions that drill into the core of Jewish identity and play into existing religious and cultural divides: How to balance security and accessibility? Should Jews be an outward-facing community - or more inward-looking? These debates have characterized Jewish religious life since the Holocaust and been inflamed by recent attacks on Jews in Paris and Brussels.
The questions have become unavoidable - and urgent - as Squirrel Hill works to absorb the recent violence.
Asked to describe the Squirrel Hill Jewish community in one word, Judy Grumet, a professor of psychology at the University of Pittsburgh, said: "Heimisha."
The Yiddish colloquialism - meaning friendly and folksy - was used by several others to describe a suburban community that was first settled by Eastern European Jews 90 years ago and whose brown-brick homes and leafy streets now represent the heart of Pittsburgh's Jewish life.
"This is a place where everyone knows everyone, where if you need a favor you can just drop by and ask," Grumet said.
The suburb and surrounding neighborhoods are home to almost 60 percent of the city's 50,000 Jewish residents, according to a 2017 Brandeis University study. They have long felt at ease expressing their faith.
But even the most traditional communities are not immune to change. While Squirrel Hill remains a vital node of Jewish life, but since 2002, "a greater share of [Jewish] newcomers has chosen to live in other areas within the region," according to the Brandeis study.
Murray Avenue, a main artery of Squirrel Hill's Jewish community, is still home to stalwart businesses like the Murray Avenue Kosher grocery store and Pinskers Books & Judaica shop. But newer businesses - including a gluten-free bakery and a vape shop - catering to a younger generation of residents and local college students have replaced many of the older establishments.
Still, every Friday, dining rooms glimmer with the light of Sabbath candles. Every fall, front lawns are lined with ritual tents to celebrate the week-long holiday of Sukkot. Kosher cuisine is such an established part of the scene here that a beloved local pizza restaurant - Milky Way - has an iPhone app to cater to demand for kosher pies and calzones from Jews and non-Jews alike.
Above all, Squirrel Hill Jews are recognized for their inclusiveness. Residents are not split by the denominational divides that typify other suburban Jewish communities. The neighborhood mikvah - ritual bath - is open to all Jews, rather than those of the Orthodox persuasion alone. Jewish congregations of different religious outlooks also share buildings and are intimately involved in the others' communal life.
"Jews here are far more interested in including you than they are asking questions that divide us up," said Wendy Kobee, a 55-year-old Dor Hadash member.
Few places embody this community spirit more than the Tree of Life complex.
The main congregation is a relatively mainstream conservative Jewish community. Dor Hadash, a smaller group of professionals and academics, is geared toward social justice, with regular programming on topics such as the environment and prison reform. New Light is an older congregation established a century ago by Romanian Jewish refugees.
"All three of them are relatively small synagogues," said Emily Rook-Koepsel, a Dor Hadash member. "Most of our [Dor Hadash] services are lay-led, so you have people helping set up folding chairs and stuff. Tree of Life has a rabbi, and there you have people coming in and meeting with each other. New Life is a lot of elderly people, so you have people helping each other downstairs."
Their sacred space was still off-limits Sunday afternoon, wrapped in police tape and surrounded by camera crews. They had become refugees in their own city.
So members of the Dor Hadash congregation gathered at East Liberty Presbyterian Church, a little over a mile away to comfort each other in privacy.
Fifty were expected, but 200 arrived on Sunday, ducking out of the falling rain into the church's social hall.
"More and more people kept showing up," Stan Angrist, 85, recalled. "And many of them were not members of Dor Hadash. But we were happy to have them."
Hummus and pita, crudités and cookies were laid out for anyone with an appetite. They read poems and uttered prayers, shared stories about the dead and updates on hospitalized survivors. Tears rippled through the crowd. They reached for a popular Hebrew saying - "Am Yisrael Chai" - for strength. The phrase means "the people of Israel live."
Ultimately, this inclusive and socially progressive group of American Jews were forced to wrestle with what would come next.
"Do we stop everything or do we continue life?" said Wendy Kobee, a 55-year-old Dor Hadash member. "We continue living. This will not define us."
The impact of violence at Tree of Life quickly ricocheted throughout the tight community. On Saturday, people who were not at the synagogue ran to other congregations to warn them. Others rushed across the street to tell their neighbors to stay inside.
Pia Naiditch, a 28-year-old interior designer and mother of three, watched in horror on Saturday as police cars raced through the streets. She feared they would turn down the route that, just a few minutes before, her husband and son had taken as they made their way to synagogue.
Naiditch's family was unharmed, but the jolt of fear reawakened an old unease.
She had always worried something like this would happen. Jews - even in America - never feel entirely secure, Naiditch explained. History has been too unkind to them for them to ever feel entirely settled.
"When I go to synagogue, I am on guard, watching the doors," she said. "I've always been like this. I don't tell people, because I sound crazy. But I'm really not crazy, because these things happen."
Rook-Koepsel said she had picked up a distinct rise in anti-Semitism before Saturday's attack - a shift she ties to the acrimonious edge of current American politics.
"It's certainly more prominent than it has been in many years," she said. "I think many people have been given permission by leadership to be more hateful than they would have previously. And I think that has led to violence. This is not the first time, and it won't be the last time."
As American Jews now struggle to find a safe way forward, the search for security threatens many of the very open-arms values that defined Squirrel Hill.
"I think that security is going to become a big discussion in the Jewish community for sure," said Rabbi Yossi Rosenblum, director of the Yeshiva Schools of Pittsburgh. "We don't want all the doors locked, we want the doors open. . .. We want people to be welcome to come in."
For Rook-Koepsel, the shooting should not knock Jews from their path of social consciousness.
"It's a very important part of a synagogue to think about the world and the best changes we can make in the world," she said. "The last couple of hours, we've been thinking the best way to honor those that were lost is by voting and talking to people about making the world better."

Doctor who died trying to save synagogue victims was AIDS pioneer

He lived to help people — and died doing the same thing.
A brave doctor who was fatally shot while rushing toward gunfire to save victims wounded during the Pittsburgh synagogue attack was a compassionate early pioneer of AIDS treatment.
Dr. Jerry Rabinowitz, 66, helped sick gay men in the ’70s and ’80s — back when many physicians didn’t want to touch them with a 10-foot stethoscope, according to a profile published by the Daily Beast.
“I never knew what it was like to go to a doctor who wouldn’t shun you or treat you with stigma around the issue of sex [until Rabinowitz],” Michael Kerr, 54, told the outlet. “It was the first time I could open up and have conversations about myself.”
Rabinowitz — one of the 11 victims killed in an anti-Semitic mass shooting at the Tree of Life Shabbat service on Saturday — worked on the front lines of the HIV/AIDS epidemic as a young medical resident at Shadyside Hospital in Pittsburgh.
He earned a reputation for fighting on the front lines of the crisis — before the disease even had a name.
When Rabinowitz started his own family practice in the ’80s, he was flooded with referrals from the desperate demographic, which included Kerr, who was then a grad student at the University of Pittsburgh.
“I got care as good as I would have had I been in New York or San Francisco,” Kerr said.
But it wasn’t just the cutting-edge meds that kept him alive; it was Rabinowitz’s support.
“He never said, ‘It will be OK’ or ‘Don’t worry.’ He had lost patients. But he showed me I was being cared for and he appreciated that I was scared,” Kerr recalled.
On Saturday, Rabinowitz was praying outside the congregation room when he heard gunfire and rushed toward it to help treat injured victims, according to the UK Independent .
“I just learned a short while ago that although the shooter traveled within the building looking for victims, Uncle Jerry wasn’t killed in the basement of the building where the congregation was,” his nephew, Avisahi Ostrin, wrote on Facebook after the attack. “Why? Because when he heard shots he ran outside to try and see if anyone was hurt and needed a doctor.”
When Kerr found out about his death on Sunday, he said he became “sick to my stomach.”
“I am never going to be able to tell him I made it,” Kerr said.

Piers Morgan Calls Trump ‘a Coward’ After Synagogue Shooting Comments: ‘Grow a Pair’

Piers Morgan has once again gone off on President Donald Trump after the deadly shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue over the weekend, calling Trump a “coward” and telling him to “Grow a pair” and ban the Ar-15 rifle in America.
In a column for the Daily Mail published Monday, Morgan scoffed at Trump’s suggestion that things might have turned out differently if “they had some kind of protection inside the temple.”
Noting that four officers were shot during the incident in Pittsburgh, Morgan wrote, “they were armed, highly trained, and knew what they were dealing with by the time they arrived at the synagogue… So what possible chance would a solitary guard have to stop a lunatic who burst in during a service blazing away with a semi-automatic rifle?”
Also Read: Piers Morgan Shreds the NRA Over Pro-Kanye Tweet: 'Utter Bulls--'
Morgan went on to reflect on Trump’s “paymasters at the NRA,” writing, “they now have a compliant President who will do their bidding, because he thinks it will be electoral suicide not to.”
In the column, Morgan ticked off a list of mass shootings in America in which an AR-15 was involved, writing, “This is not a coincidence… The reason why all these shooters used an AR-15 is simple: they’re light, easy to use, and specifically designed to kill as many people as possible in the shortest possible time, and in the most appallingly devastating way.”
Morgan continued that Trump “deliberately chooses to do nothing to stop crazy people repeatedly using AR-15s to slaughter Americans, because he doesn’t want to upset a despicably cynical and ruthless lobby group hell-bent on turning America into a militarized state.”

He added, “Stop being such a coward, Mr President.”
Morgan wrapped up his column with a simple suggestion for Trump.
“AR-15s have no place in ANY civilized society,” Morgan wrote. “Grow a pair, and ban them.”

Turkey pressures Saudi on Khashoggi body as prosecutor visits

Istanbul: Turkey on Monday called on Saudi Arabia to reveal the “whole truth” about the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, as the whereabouts of the journalist’s body dominated a visit to the country by Riyadh’s top prosecutor.
Khashoggi’s death inside the kingdom’s Istanbul consulate has brought near unprecedented international scrutiny on Saudi Arabia, which is seeking to draw a line under the crisis as Western powers demand answers.
The head of the Saudi investigation, Attorney General Sheikh Saud al-Mojeb, who last week acknowledged that the killing was “premeditated” based on Turkish evidence, met with Istanbul chief prosecutor Irfan Fidan for around 75 minutes on Monday, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported.
Mojeb was then expected to inspect the Saudi consulate.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Monday said there was “an advantage in our prosecutors sharing information and working together”.
“The cooperation must continue, but it must not be drawn out or turned into a diversion. The investigation must be completed as soon as possible, so that the whole truth is revealed,” he told a press conference in Istanbul.
Asked about the whereabouts of Khashoggi’s body, which remain a mystery nearly a month after his death, Cavusoglu said that “as those who committed the murder are in Saudi Arabia, Saudi Arabia has a very large responsibility”.
Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor who had criticised Saudi Arabia’s powerful Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, vanished after entering the consulate on October 2 to obtain paperwork for his marriage to his Turkish fiancee.
According to Turkey broadcaster TRT, Mojeb asked Turkish investigators to hand over the full findings of their own probe, but the request was rejected.
TRT said the Turkish prosecutor then demanded Mojeb give up any information of the whereabouts of Khashoggi’s body.
Saudi authorities have arrested 18 men over the murder, and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has requested the suspects be extradited for trial in Turkey.
However Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir rejected the request, saying the men will be prosecuted in Saudi Arabia, dismissing media “hysteria”.
Erdogan has also questioned why Saudi Arabia will not reveal the location of the body, as well as details of who carried out the hit.
– Grim hunt for body –
Erdogan has said that a 15-person team came from Riyadh to kill Khashoggi, carrying out reconnaissance outside Istanbul and deactivating security cameras at the consulate.
The Turkish president, who has stopped short of directly blaming the Saudi government, has also indicated that his country had more evidence to reveal about the killing.
Gruesome reports in the Turkish media have alleged that Khashoggi’s body was cut up into multiple pieces.
Turkish investigators have searched for the body in a forest near Istanbul, as well as using a robotic arm to inspect the sewers around the Saudi consulate.
Saudi authorities denied Turkish police permission to search a well in the garden of the consulate, but did allow them to take water samples for analysis, local media reported.
US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said Sunday that Jubeir had assured him Riyadh would conduct a “full” investigation, adding he was confident the probe would include Turkey’s findings.
– ‘Rogue operation’? –
Riyadh initially insisted that Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed, but as pressure grew, Saudi state media changed the story and said Khashoggi died when an argument descended into a brawl.
The story was undercut by footage, which Erdogan confirmed, of a Saudi official acting as a body double for Khashoggi, wearing the journalist’s clothes when leaving the consulate to pretend to be the dead man.
Since admitting the murder was premeditated, Saudi leadership has blamed a “rogue operation” for the killing of Khashoggi, who was once an insider in Saudi royal circles and had lived in self-imposed exile in the United States since 2017.
Beyond the detention of the 18 suspects, five Saudi intelligence chiefs have been sacked, including two who were part of the crown prince’s inner circle.
Prince Mohammed has denounced the murder as “repulsive” and strongly denied any involvement.
However the affair has tarnished the image of the crown prince, the de facto leader of the oil-rich Gulf nation, who has positioned himself as a Saudi reformer.

Idina Menzel & Kristin Chenoweth Unite For Emotional Rendition Of ‘For Good’ On ‘Wicked’ Special

Kristin Chenoweth, 50, and Idina Menzel, 47, knew just how to end their A Very Wicked Halloween: Celebrating 15 Years On Broadway NBC special. The original Glinda and Elphaba teamed up to sing “For Good,” in one of the most moving performances we’ve ever seen. Kristin and Idina held each other as they sang. Their voices sounded magnificent. It was truly an unforgettable moment. They were soon joined by their fellow Elphabas and Glindas!
Before their performance, Kristin and Idina had a few special words for the fans. “You have given us so much,” a tearful Kristin said, before adding, “and our entire family of performers and crew and creative team.” Idina followed with, “And in return, we hope that Wicked has brought you joy and entertainment, made you laugh and made you cry.” Kristin quipped that “clearly it’s made me cry.” She continued, “We are so proud to be a part of this show. We really are. It’s our DNA, and its heart and soul is all about love, inclusion, and tolerance.” Idina added, “And family.”
The Tony winners were the hosts of the special, which featured even more incredible performances. Ariana Grande, 25, sang a beautiful rendition of “The Wizard and I.” If there’s ever a live TV version of Wicked, Ariana should totally be Elphaba, right? Adam Lambert, 36, Ledisi, 46, and Pentatonix also performed.
HollywoodLife spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Kristin and Idina ahead of the special. “ It’s such a celebration of women supporting women; of owning who we are, of not being afraid of that thing in us that’s really fierce and powerful. Of being strong, and that that’s not ugly or angry. That it’s just beautiful,” Idina told HollywoodLife. Kristin also said, “I t’s a common theme,” she added. “I t’s called Wicked, but it’s like — which one’s wicked? Who’s good? You’re still trying to figure it out, and you see both sides. You can understand both sides to both stories.”

CDC Never Said That You Shouldn't Dress Up Your Chickens For Halloween

You can leave your hat on, chickens. (Photo: Getty Images)
Now you can proceed with your plans to dress up your chickens as Deadpool for Halloween. Just make sure that they can breathe through the mask.
Some news reports ( like this one from Fox News) suggested that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had advised people against dressing chickens up for Halloween due to the risk of Salmonella infections. Apparently enough chicken owners said "what the cluck" for the CDC to issue the following statement:
Despite news reports to the contrary, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has not warned people against dressing chickens in Halloween costumes. However, we do advise people with backyard or pet chickens to handle them carefully to keep their family and their chickens safe and healthy.
That a major government agency has to issue such a specific statement means 2 things. One, there are more than just a few people out there wanting to dress up chickens in Halloween costumes. Two, enough people clearly do not understand how Salmonella is transmitted.
Unless you are planning on dressing up your chicken as a dentist and you are planning to be a dental patient for Halloween, having a chicken in a costume alone is not going to give you Salmonella if you take the proper precautions. The main issue is that you don't want the chicken or anything that touched the chicken anywhere near your mouth, nose, eyes, or your face in general. For example, you can dress the chicken as Tom Brady but don't then lick the helmet without washing it thoroughly first. Don't let your chickens anywhere near your food, your drink, or any items than may be used to store, serve, or transfer food. Don't let chickens roam in your house because you don't know what they may touch and they tend to leave the toilet seat up. If you are planning on dressing up your chickens and your kids less than 5 years old as One Direction, don't. First of all, BTS has much more staying power, and kids that young don't have fully developed immune systems and are much more likely to get seriously ill from Salmonella infections.
There are currently 6 active Salmonella outbreaks listed on the CDC website. Five are connected with food items:
One is linked to animals:
See, no outbreaks linked to fowl cosplay.
So go ahead, recreate the royal wedding, The Incredibles, or the final scene in Mamma Mia! with your chickens, if you really want to do so. Just make sure that your wash your hands frequently and thoroughly, and keep the chickens away from anything that will be go into any person's mouth. As I have written before for Forbes, you don't want your next song to be Salmonella, here we go again, my my.
I’ve been in the worlds of business, medicine, and global and public health. And these worlds are a lot more similar and different than you think. Currently, I am an Associate Professor of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Executive...

Here's how Red Hat can help IBM in the cloud and beyond

IBM just agreed to spend $34 billion on Red Hat, the largest software deal ever. It's by far IBM's biggest deal in its 107-year history and follows five straight years of declining revenue at the company.
There's no guarantee such a big bet will pay off. Spending this much won't suddenly vault IBM past Amazon in the public cloud market or turn it into a trendy software growth story like Salesforce or Twilio.
But for a company looking to stay relevant as the technology landscape rapidly evolves, buying Red Hat is a bold move, and there's logic to it.
"This is as transformative as it gets for IBM," Jeffrey Kvaal, an analyst at Nomura Instinet, wrote in a report to clients on Monday.
Here are some of the possible benefits of IBM's acquisition:
Red Hat is a fraction of the size of IBM, but it's growing much faster and generating cash in the process. While analysts project meager growth at IBM this year before contraction again in 2019, they see Red Hat growing at least 15 percent this fiscal year and next. IBM expects the combination to boost revenue growth by 2 percent and increase earnings per share, excluding certain items, two years after it closes.
Part of the expansion should come from sales of Red Hat's products to IBM's bigger base of customers. IBM intends to put its products on Red Hat's software stack, CEO Ginni Rometty said on Monday's call with analysts.
Red Hat's heritage is doing business around the Linux open-source operating system. IBM has a public cloud that competes with Amazon Web Services. But developers use Red Hat's Linux on many public clouds, including those run by Microsoft and Google. That multi-cloud approach should help IBM bring in revenue as more companies choose to go to public clouds that are more popular than its own.
Rometty said that buying Red Hat will help the company become the leader in the hybrid cloud market, and Jim Whitehurst, Red Hat's CEO, said on the call that "this is about providing choice and making sure customers are not locked in."
Rometty said buying Red Hat means getting more than 8 million software developers on board, potentially bringing them closer to IBM's other products.
There's also the opportunity for more consulting work for IBM. Helping deploy Red Hat products like JBoss middleware and the OpenShift software for deploying applications in virtual containers could all fall within IBM's consulting and managed service operations, according to the Nomura report.
"We've been building out our own services capability, but it is very small relative to what IBM can bring to the table," Whitehurst said.
The deal could help IBM, which sells traditional data center hardware, improve its positioning among companies that still run applications in their own facilities.
Setting aside spending on public cloud, "the remaining 90 percent of data center spend is still on HP, IBM, Dell and Cisco," Dharmesh Thakker, a partner at Battery Ventures who invests in software and infrastructure start-ups, told CNBC in an interview. "IBM is hoping that by having a key asset as part of the mix, they can portray themselves as the best of the bunch."
There's a lot at stake for IBM in the latest mega-deal. Plenty of big tech acquisitions have failed, notably Hewlett-Packard's $25 billion acquisition of Compaq, Microsoft's $7.2 billion purchase of Nokia's Devices and Services business and Google's $12.5 billion deal for Motorola Mobility.
As Cantor Fitzgerald analysts wrote in a report on Monday, "the success of the deal will depend on its execution on the cross-selling/integration side."
— CNBC's Ari Levy contributed to this report.

China reverses ban on trade in tiger, rhino products

China says it will allow trading in products made from endangered tigers and rhinos under "special circumstances," reversing a previous ban and bringing condemnation from conservation groups.
A notice from the Cabinet issued Monday avoided mentioning any change in the law, saying instead that it would "control" the trade and that rhino horns and tiger bones could only be obtained from farmed animals for use in "medical research or in healing."
"Under the special circumstances, regulation on the sales and use of these products will be strengthened, and any related actions will be authorized, and the trade volume will be strictly controlled," the statement said.
Tiger bone and rhino horn are used in traditional Chinese medicine, despite a lack of evidence of their effectiveness in treating illness and the effect on wild populations. Chinese demand for ivory is also blamed as a driver behind the slaughter of African elephants, despite Beijing banning all trade in ivory starting from this year.
The World Wildlife Fund said the move to overturn the ban would have "devastating consequences globally" by allowing poachers and smugglers to hide behind legalized trade.
"With wild tiger and rhino populations at such low levels and facing numerous threats, legalized trade in their parts is simply too great a gamble for China to take," Margaret Kinnaird, WWF wildlife practice leader, was quoted as saying in a statement from the Washington-based organization.
"This decision seems to contradict the leadership China has shown recently in tackling the illegal wildlife trade," Kinnaird said.
Despite the former ban, China has long allowed tiger farms, which harvest the bones of dead animals, and tacitly allows their sale for alleged medicinal purposes, according to a study by the Environmental Investigation Agency, a British nonprofit.
Operators are also believed to be investigating the possibility of farming rhinos in the country, although, unlike tigers, those are not native to China.
The EIA called the overturning of the ban a "brazen and regressive move which drastically undermines international efforts for tiger and rhino conservation."
"At a single stroke, China has shattered its reputation as a growing leader in conservation following its domestic ban on the sale of ivory at the start of the year," the group said.

‘I was no longer indispensable’ at Real Madrid, says Ronaldo

Paris: Cristiano Ronaldo has said he decided to leave Real Madrid for Juventus after sensing that the Spanish club’s president, Florentino Perez, no longer saw him as being “indispensable”.
“I felt within the club, especially from the president, that I was no longer considered in the same way as I was at the beginning,” Ronaldo said in an interview with France Football magazine.
“For the first four or five years, I felt like Cristiano Ronaldo. Less so after.
“The president looked at me in a way that suggested I was no longer indispensable, if you know what I mean. That is what made me think about leaving.”
The 33-year-old Portuguese superstar joined Juventus in a 100 million-euro ($115 million) deal in July, ending a glorious nine-year association with Real.
His last act with the Spanish club was to participate in them winning the Champions League for a third consecutive season by beating Liverpool in the final in May.
But Zinedine Zidane departed as coach in the wake of that game, something which Ronaldo admits confirmed to him that it might be time to move on.
“My decision to leave was not based on him going. That said, it was one of the little details that confirmed to me what I had been thinking about the situation at the club,” Ronaldo said.
He added that he would “deserve” to win the Ballon d’Or this year, and in doing so would pass Lionel Messi by taking the award for a sixth time.
The winner of the prize, awarded by France Football, will be announced in early December.
But while Ronaldo continues to enjoy great success on the field, scoring twice for Juventus at the weekend, he remains embroiled in off-pitch problems after being accused of rape in the United States.
A former American model Kathryn Mayorga, 34, of Las Vegas, accused Ronaldo in a 32-page complaint filed last month with a district court in Nevada, of raping her in June 2009, just before he joined Madrid from Manchester United.
“Of course this matter interferes with my life. I have a partner, four children, an ageing mother, sisters, a brother, a family with whom I am very close,” he told the magazine.
“That is without talking about my reputation, that of an exemplary person.
“Imagine what that is like to have someone say you are a rapist, or that you have this or that.
“I know who I am and what I did. The truth will come out. And the people who criticise me and who expose my life today, who make a song and dance about it, these people will see.”

Retrial begins for neo-Nazi charged in 2009 Phoenix killing

PHOENIX — A neo-Nazi charged with trying to kill a black man and fatally shooting the man's white girlfriend was driven by hate, a prosecutor said Monday at the start of a retrial in the 9-year-old case.
Prosecutor Ryan Green told jurors that Travis Ricci embraced the lifestyle of white supremacy, had Nazi and white-power tattoos across his body, and used racial slurs toward Kelly Ann Jaeger's boyfriend during a 2009 dispute at a Phoenix park.
"He was angry about a black man (being) with a white woman," Green told jurors in opening statements.
Ricci is being retried after his first trial this summer ended in a mistrial because a witness, in response to a prosecutor's question, revealed that Ricci had spent time in prison.
Jurors weren't supposed to hear about Ricci's criminal history.
Authorities say a shirtless Ricci confronted Jaeger and her boyfriend, Jeffery Wellmaker, at the park and harassed Wellmaker. They said Ricci left to get a shotgun from his home and falsely told people there that he saw a black man hitting a white woman.
Authorities say Ricci returned to the area and fired two shotgun blasts from a car as Jaeger and Ricci stood near a pay phone. They said Ricci intended to shoot Wellmaker but instead struck Jaeger.
Before the trial began, Superior Court Judge Dean Fink asked jurors whether the mass shooting Saturday at a synagogue in Pittsburgh where 11 people were killed would affect their ability to be impartial at Ricci's trial. All jurors answered no.
Authorities are seeking the death penalty against Ricci, saying Jaeger's killing was meant to further the interests of the Vinlanders Social Club, a neo-Nazi group with a reputation for violence.
Since prosecutors have called the attack a hate crime, they can seek as many as 11 additional years in prison — above the maximum penalty — if Ricci is convicted of other charges, such as attempted murder, drive-by shooting, aggravated assault and assisting a criminal gang.
Bruce Blumberg, one of Ricci's attorneys, maintains his client didn't shoot Jaeger. He said Wellmaker can't reliably identify the person who fired the gunshots and questioned the credibility of white supremacists who are expected to testify against Ricci.
"These are people who will actually lie to your face, and the state will ask you to rely on these people for the truth," Blumberg said.
Ricci, whose Nazi tattoos were covered up by a dress shirt, often looked downward as he scratched out notes on papers during opening statements. He has pleaded not guilty.
Defense attorneys have noted that nearly two years after the attack, Wellmaker was jailed in an unrelated case and played chess with Ricci behind bars without recognizing him. Wellmaker also has acknowledged smoking marijuana earlier on the morning of the shooting.
One of the state's expected witnesses is Aaron Levi Schmidt, who authorities say was driving the car used in the shooting.
Schmidt has pleaded guilty to murder in Jaeger's death and is already serving 11 years for assisting a criminal gang. It's unclear if he's been sentenced on the murder conviction.
Lawyers for Ricci and Schmidt, both 36, have said their clients weren't members of the Vinlanders.

John Cena won't take part in WWE's Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia

John Cena will not take part in the WWE's Crown Jewel event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Friday.
After being advertised as part of the show in recent weeks, Cena was quietly removed from the match as part of Monday night's broadcast of WWE's flagship show "Monday Night Raw." He will be replaced in the event by Bobby Lashley, who joins Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, Dolph Ziggler, The Miz and Rey Mysterio in the tournament portion of the show.
The WWE is moving forward with Crown Jewel despite the ongoing investigation into the death of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Turkey on Oct. 2.
In a statement, WWE said, "As always, we maintain an open line of communication with our performers and will address each situation accordingly."
In the release of their third-quarter earnings, WWE affirmed their plans to hold the Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia on Nov. 2.
Cena, who in recent years has made a push into the world of mainstream Hollywood in movies and television, has yet to release a public statement about no longer taking part in the Crown Jewel show.
As part of their Q3 financial report last week, WWE confirmed they were moving forward with their Crown Jewel event.
"WWE has operated in the Middle East for nearly 20 years and has developed a sizable and dedicated fan base. Considering the heinous crime committed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, the Company faced a very difficult decision as it relates to its event scheduled for November 2 in Riyadh," WWE said in the report. "Similar to other U. S.-based companies who plan to continue operations in Saudi Arabia, the Company has decided to uphold its contractual obligations to the General Sports Authority and stage the event. Full year 2018 guidance is predicated on the staging of the Riyadh event as scheduled."
Cena previously performed at WWE's first major event in Saudi Arabia in April, the Greatest Royal Rumble, and made an in-ring speech following his match against Triple H that opened the show in front of a crowd of 60,000 at Jeddah's King Abdullah Sports City Stadium.
"What an honor and a privilege it is to be allowed to be a part of an event like today," Cena said in April. "Regardless of what is going on in my universe, I was not going to miss this event for anything in the world. I want to send a genuine thank you to the kingdom of Saudi Arabia... for its unmatched hospitality that extends far beyond this evening. And I also want to say once again thank all of you for allowing me to be part of something so special."
Crown Jewel, which is set to take place at Riyadh's King Saud University Stadium, is also scheduled to feature several of the company's other high profile legends. Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels returns to in-ring action in the WWE for the first time in more than eight years as part of a tag team match featuring Triple H, The Undertaker and Knox County, Tennessee, mayor Glen "Kane" Jacobs.
Brock Lesnar, a former UFC heavyweight champion and multiple champion in WWE, will feature in a Universal championship match against Braun Strowman. WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan said in an interview last week with the Orlando Sentinel that he was "looking forward to going to Saudi Arabia with the WWE."
There has not yet been any word of any other potential changes to the Crown Jewel show.
