    Filed under Music, Open thread at June 25th, 2019 - 8:40 pm

    Way back in 1993, a former music teacher from Missouri named Sheryl Crow released her debut album, Tuesday Night Music Club, which went on to sell more than 4.5 million copies and reached #2 on the Billboard charts. The album also won Crow three Grammy Awards in 1995: Record of the Year, Best New Artist and Best Female Vocal Performance.

    Since then, she has sold more the 50 million albums worldwide, received 9 Grammy awards (out of 32 nominations), ans performed with some of the biggest names in music, including B.B. King, Tina Turner, the Rolling Stones, and Eric Clapton.

    Her 11th studio album, Threads, is due out on August 30th of this year. All of the songs on it are collaborations between her and a number of her friends and fellow artists. It’s reportedly going to be her final album.

    In the interest of full disclosure, the main reason for this post is that it was the only thing I could think of involving Tuesday night on short notice, and we needed a new thread.

    Enjoy!

      Google has an internal mailing where people can anonymously point out issues that concern them. My favorite

      “You gays are so lucky. Your life is so much easier, you don’t have to fake respecting women.”

      But wait! There’s more!

      “A coworker approached me to say that he noticed I consumed a lot of soy products (I’m a vegetarian) and that he was worried my testicles would shrink, my testosterone would fail, and estrogen would rise. It was inappropriate to begin with, but also cast people with lower testosterone as less masculine or manly.”

      hmmm, maybe this is my favorite

      “I have to read ‘global slave’ every time I mail or submit code.”

      Sean Lawler, a State Department official whose title is chief of protocol, is departing amid a possible inspector general’s probe into accusations of intimidating staff and carrying a whip in the office, according to one of the people.

      Maybe the thought of pain is the only way to make the State Dept. behave. Our Foreign Affairs Dept. is the equivalent and is riddled with Commies and other odious critters. Maybe it’s different here. I don’t condone the USE of a whip, but it could be construed as walk softly and carry a big stick. Or he is JPN. (just plain nuts)

      You are the new music thread man. Maybe it could be movie suggestions. TV series, and book mention night all at once. We got “Killing Eve” on Bravo up here. The first season was fascinating because it was unpredictable and a great Brit and European Spy story. It is based on a series of e-books called “Villanelle” iirc. Psychopaths with fluid boundaries. Oddly funny. Stellar acting.

      We finally got around to watching a baseball movie called ‘Moneyball’
      The story of 2 men who changed the player selection process forever.

      There really is a larger lesson from that story, though. It’s not just about baseball.

      The US Army has adopted Moneyball (the book, not the movie) as part of the curriculum in intelligence training.

      The real takeaway from the book is that you have to develop metrics that actually fit the problem you’re attempting to solve.

      I’m told on some of the people on stage w/Barr

      John Huber – US Attorney for Utah. Vice chair of the AG’s Advisory Committee

      Jessie Liu – US Attorney DC. Barr appointed Liu to lead the AG’s Advisory Committee

      Robert Hur – US Attorney for Maryland & former top Rosenstein aide

      If I’m not mis-remembering, Sidney Powell has a serious problem w/Liu. She nails her for letting the Awan brothers walk.

      Here’s a 5 minute Bloomberg interview with a person from some a crypto related Company. I know nothing about it. You may notice that a lot of her words sound like English, but are not defined. In fact, I think the interviewers didn’t have a clue what she was talking about. The word “halvening” she uses at the start does mean that the amount of the coin (she talks bitcoin exclusively) that will be available is going to be cut in half. I don’t know how or why, but this stuff fascinates me. Ostensibly, the lowering of supply will increase the price. This all hinges on mass adoption slowly taking place. So, here it goes.

      In the circumstances the sound of the pipes can have an electric effect.

      Like the (exercise) first light Battalion attack against an entrenched (dug in to Stage III) ‘enemy’. The first two assault companies just took off and rolled right over the objective, with the assault platoons getting down and dirty in the ‘enemy’ trenches. It took a LOT of ‘officering’ to stop the troops from beating the ‘enemy’ to bits literally.

      The pipes, the pre-morning ground mist, and the smell of cordite and simulated artillery fire erupting all around from pre-placed explosive charges, has a peculiar effect on the human brain, bringing out the lower brain functions and giving them free reign. It was a chilling exhibition of what lurks within each of us, to create bloody mayhem.

      So, here it goes.

      she lost me at block streaming. And I still don’t understand mining (and why it uses so much electricity – which should have AOC and her ilk screaming bloody murder but hasn’t so far). I understand it confirms transactions and apparently creates new coin, but I don’t think that scratches the surface.

      Anyhoo, here’s a nice piece on just some of the nightmare scenario of Libra.

      The Libra Association will, after all, be overwhelmingly controlled by for-profit companies, not by charities. These companies want to make money. The structure of the organization gives them a direct financial interest in the management of Libra because their investment in the reserve entitles them to dividends, which in turn depend on the assets that the reserve holds. If those assets appreciate, the members make profits.

      Again, the assets in the Libra Reserve will consist of national currencies and government bonds—at least at the outset. Every time you or I buy a Libra for, say, $1, a portion of that dollar will pay for a government bond whose interest goes to the Libra Association members, not to us. This will prove lucrative for association members if millions of people end up using Libra.

      Then again, government bonds pay low interest, and national currencies pay none at all. If the Libra Association members want to increase their returns on their investment, all they need to do is change the composition of assets in the Libra Reserve—a policy shift that they could make by a two-thirds vote. They could then, for example, exchange some of the currency and low-risk debt for somewhat higher-risk debt—by making loans, or by buying loans from banks and other loan originators. And with sufficient diversification, a more aggressive portfolio can be accumulated with relative safety. This is how banks work, and banks, of course, make a lot of money, especially when they are big.

      And Libra will be big. Facebook has 2.4 billion users

      @ eaglesoars:

      The thing about Libra is that it, at this point, nothing to do with the blockchain. Meaning it is not mined. However given that facebook has a gajillion dollars, they can buy a herd of software engineers from everywhere around the globe. The very vague understanding I have of the blockchain is that any decent computer can download a node (where computations are taking place) and watch their bitcoin tiny part move through the node. That will never be me. MAYBE this herd of software engineers could invent their own node?

      The thing about the bitcoin blockchain, among others, is that any individual transaction is immutable. It can never be reversed. Mining requires special hardware and I guess software. The electricity consumed is considerable and builds up real heat. Which is why Iceland is a good place to mine bitcoin. In China and elsewhere they have mining farms near hydroelectric power where power is cheaper.

      Remember, I’m far from reliable on some subjects. However I sort of imbibed a bunch of general concepts back in 2017 when I was listening to podcasts. This field is always in development. There are people who have been using bitcoin and other cryptos for several years now. It’s easy to trade cryptos if you understand computer software and push the right buttons. I can’t and don’t. If I was younger and physically able. I would have found out how to do it without having to know a damn thing about the blockchain or anything else technical. There are now 5,000 bitcoin ATMs on the globe. People just use their
      phones and press buttons. Who accepts bitcoin as payment? Well, that’s the thing isn’t it? Lots do, or you wouldn’t have an ATM. But I have no clue who does. Other cryptos are widely used like a privacy crypto called monero. Canada is retarded in this field, but the US is hopping and its easy to buy and sell through coinbase. If you trust any of it. There’s a decided advantage to being young and dumb for a lot of crypto users.

      In general, hotels don’t accept Bitcoin. While there might be exceptions, the best way to pay for a hotel with Bitcoin would be through Expedia (which accepts Bitcoin).

      Today it’s possible to buy almost anything with Bitcoin through the use of Bitcoin debit cards. These cards are issued by Visa or Mastercard and can be loaded with funds via Bitcoin.

      Facebook has announced it will hand over the identities of French users suspected of posting hate speech on its platform to the courts.

      In a world first, the tech giant has agreed to hand over the identification data of hate speech suspects on its platform to judges, France’s minister for digital affairs Cedric O said yesterday.

      Facebook will share the IP addresses of accounts containing ‘homophobic, racist or anti-Semitic content’, a ministerial aide confirmed.

      Why not to buy Libra Ever.

      IP (Internet Protocol) addresses allow investigators to identify and locate the computers used to make such posts.

      Facebook’s commitment ‘concerns only France’, an aide to digital affairs minister Cedric O said.

      Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg met with French President Emmanuel Macron in May to discuss ways to combat hateful content.

      BINGO !

      In Oz the local COIN training has been doing stuff like this based on the Moneyball type principles since the 1950s. That is why during the Malayan Emergence, the contretemps with Indonesia in the Malaysian war of Confrontation, the Viet Nam Phuoc Tui Province pacification program and every other short of full war situation since VietNam, the COIN programs have been refined to a stage that they are almost guaranteed to work in a low intensity war situation.

      The whole process of COIN is intelligence driven that penetrates and out preforms the enemy’s tactical and more to the point STRATEGIC thinking. You get into the head of the enemy commander and force him to be reactive and prevent him from seizing the initiative.

      Easy to say but bloody hard to do in real life situations. With a LOT of practice and some bloody brilliant intel operators it’s more than possible however. The key to pull it all together is to have total trust in one’s tactical ‘in the weeds’ sub-unit commanders and to provide them with everything they need to get the job done.Intel operators deploy with companies and down to Platoon level as is needed. Collection of information and intelligence gets easier and easier these days. However collating it and analysing it by world class IOs and analysts who have the mental discipline to leave their prejudices and assumptions at the tent-flap, in an era of information overload where the signal to noise ration can be very high.

      Flash Harrys.

      They are ‘virtue signalling’ morons who have NOT done their sums.

      Speaking in a foreign tongue during an electoral process that demands understanding of the spoken word by the MAJORITY is a prescription for going down in flames electorally.

      Sure you might pick up some support from Spanish speakers but you will also lose support from others who are pissed off by not being able to understand you. OK the fanatic will vote no matter what but if you can’t communicate ideas to the rank and file Democrat voter… then they have plenty of other options … 18 other options!

      @ Aussie Infidel:
      With the Counter jihad movement, the enemy e.g. the UN uses both strategies and tactics against us. Their goal is total control and they make the laws that punish us for using normal tactics. The more personal freedom you have, the less the enemy has power over you.

      I think the so-called ‘preppers’ have the right idea. Depending on Government for necessities and protection is being owned. My ebay jewelry collection began nearly 2 decades ago as part of my retirement plan. It helps to store wealth and it’s really pretty. A friend of mine moved to a small town and put up greenhouses to grow veggies. She has a lot of money, but loves her freedom more.

      We are extremely reliant on energy. Trudeau & Liberal idiots have shut in most of our oil resources under the guidance of Soros and the UN. We have no Donald Trump.

      Of course the UN is the enemy. It’s been the enemy right from the off, because of those folks who were driving its establishment. They were covert socialists, or one world elitists who were merely carrying out long planned methods to sideline and control the populations of the Earth.Nothing has changed except the faces and the agents… hidden of course… in Agenda 21 and Agenda 30. Some of these morons even have become so sure that their plans can’t be overthrown that they have been clear about them both in private and lately in public.

      A Cabinet Minister in NZ whom I know extremely well came clean one evening after a free glass of wine. He was a ‘cheap drunk’. He gave me a complete run down on his recruitment whilst doing his Doctorate of Laws (in Government and Constitutional Law)whilst at Oxford. The details would make your hair stand on end. He was either a truly evil bastard or was a total dupe who saw the writing on the wall and decided to ‘get with the strength’ (his words!)

      I think he is a dupe. Still he lives his delusion even to the extent of refusing to procreate, such is his strength of the elitist ideology.

      Or perhaps he just can’t get it up and he’s using this ‘I’m doing it for the planet’ BS as an excuse!

      Considering how the last 2 generations of “empowering women” to chase higher education (with lots of debt) and careers has led to free fall in birth rates in 1st world countries and as family courts have made marriage unattractive to men, I would say they are succeeding. Good luck keeping those public coffers filled to sustain all those social welfare programs.

      Fucking Roberts. Again.

      Supreme Court tosses citizenship question from 2020 census forms, a victory for Democratic states

      The court found that while the Commerce Department has a right to reinstate the question, it did not provide an adequate justification for doing so.

      You have to justify doing something the law gives you the right to do? Who knew?

      the vote was 5-4, with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the four-member liberal wing of the court.

      The court’s majority said the government has the right to ask a citizenship question, but that it needs to properly justify changing the long-standing practice of the Census Bureau. The Trump administration’s justification was “contrived,” Roberts wrote, and did not appear to be the genuine reason for the change, possibly implying that the real reason was political.

      Of COURSE it’s political, it’s used to assign representation you idiot.

      In general, hotels don’t accept Bitcoin. While there might be exceptions, the best way to pay for a hotel with Bitcoin would be through Expedia (which accepts Bitcoin).

      Today it’s possible to buy almost anything with Bitcoin through the use of Bitcoin debit cards. These cards are issued by Visa or Mastercard and can be loaded with funds via Bitcoin.

      (huh, who knew?)

      THEY don’t WANT YOU TO KNOW. You can’t load your cards with Bitcoin up here. I didn’t know you could in the US. The cost of bitcoin can fluctuate wildly. They will tell you that is THE reason you shouldn’t use it. Very few people can affod a whole bitcoin now. You just buy a part of one. I don’t know if you can BUY a bitcoin with a credit card now. Coinbase, the big US exchange probably does let you buy that way if you are in the US. My broker told me a couple of years ago that Canada is creating its own crypto. That was before she dumped us because we didn’t have enough money invested with them. They are doing the same in the US.

      Is this a violation of the commerce clause?

      Bank of America will end its association with companies that provide prisoner and immigrant detention services at both the state and federal levels. The move comes amid growing public concern about the nation’s border policies.

      A spokesperson said Wednesday that Bank of America (BAC) has discussed the issue with its clients that provide those services. While the bank appreciates “steps they have taken to properly execute their contractual and humanitarian responsibilities,” it ultimately decided to “exit the relationships.”
      “Lacking further legal and policy clarity, and in recognition of the concerns of our employees and stakeholders in the communities we serve, it is our intention to exit these relationships,” the spokesperson said.

      Bank of America will no longer do business with companies that run detention centers

      Ugh. She is rough to look at. Her face looks like roads of her native Puerto Rico, rutted and weathered and aging like a salad under hot lights at Sizzler.

      As roads in Puerto Rico often are.

      Evel Knievel once planned a rocket-assisted jump across the crags in her skin, but he took the coward’s way out and jumped the Snake River Canyon instead.

      She doesn’t need botox, she needs a Superfund designation.

      She always has the same look on her face, the look that says “I just looked into the Ark of the Covenant and it’s beautiful, it’s beautiful! Oh wait, not so much now.”

      Her face looks like a Renaissance masterpiece, aged and cracked and in need of high-tech restoration and probably painted over a lost map to the Templar treasure.

      Nick Cage wants to shave off her eyebrows and look for clues.

      She looks like a Roswell alien cadaver skull in drag-paint.

      Her face is the metaphysical embodiment of that feeling you get when you see two cheap knockoff sneakers made of lime colored pseudovelour in size triple wide hanging off a telephone line. You feel bad for the kid that once owned them, but you wonder, wistfully, if the Curse of the Haunted Kedz is now finally lifted.

      She looks like one of those poisonous Amazonian tree toads except in bad need of moisturizer and with The Crazy Eyes.

      She’s got teeth like tombstones and skin like sunbaked denim.

      She looks like she was made out of mismatched parts from the puppet faces in The Dark Crystal and Tales from the Crypt.

      She’s a stone-cold butterface. The only reason people even credit her as attractive is that her competition is Barbara Mikulski and Rashida Tlaib and Jerry Nadler.

      Interesting that not only do the Democrats have no real plan to PAY for Medicare for all, they conveniently forget to mention that Medicare recipients are paying for supplemental plans and still have deductibles. These plans can run pretty high – I’ve seen figures like $400 month for reasonable deductible covering hospitalization and pharmacy. That’s PER PERSON. Think what the cost would be for a family of five. Granted, I’m sure the rates are higher because the older among us require more medical care, but still….

You mean I STILL pay into Medicare once I’ve begun collecting my Social Security benefits and then the supplements are in addition?

      Geez – does it ever stop.

      @ eaglesoars:

      Other than being a bad bad business decision on their part, I imagine they can refuse to do business with whomever they like, as long as they’re consistent and their exclusion policies don’t violate federal discrimination statutes. Now if ALL banks said they won’t do business with companies that do such and such, activities that are legal and sanctioned, that’s anti-trust under federal law and actionable under commerce.

      yep. A I say, it’s means tested, so if you make little money you don’t pay for medicare, but if you’re still working, as we are, and are pulling down a reasonable salary, you pay for your medicare. Our supplementals combined are about $200/month, our medicare a bit over $900.
