It’s a fresh start for the Armada, which finished sixth in the spring season and comes off a 4-2 exhibition loss to Argentine giant Boca Juniors, in which the team held its own for most of the night.

KPFK hosted PACIFICA's board in LA. Missed it? here's some for ya
2015-07-04 19:50:45 (12 minutes ago) 


KPFK’s LA Public members : Many KPFK Volunteers also arrived to these meetings, as ‘public members’ to the PNB [Pacifica National Board]meeting in LA, with most wanting to speak aloud to all present, their Public Comments allowed for 2 min each – allowed 2x/ each day for each signed-up speaker.

The rest of the time, this sidelined group had to sit totally separately and isolated from the action, while in back - behind the horse-shoe seating of the 20 official members who spoke only to Each Other.

KFPK staffers and programmers also came only to speak and then quickly leave, giving no acknowledgement to the volunteers also present, as usual. Many loudly and in upset complained about the new Gen’l Mgr foisted upon them without notice or input.

Their unhappiness at being forced to be controlled by a person they did not appreciate or have input in choosing seemed to leave their powerlessness and distress audible.

PNB exclusiveness : The PNBers clearly were trying to avoid seeing, speaking or acknowledging the misc. “others” riff-raff who had no fancy standing but crowded in back of room.

Even when a break opened up interactive possibilities, it was sadly noticeable that that the PNBers did not act friendly nor socialize or smile at those ‘others’ of lower standing. Latinos ate only with one another, and special affinity groups excluded any ‘other’ ones there.

This done while each was surely denying that ‘elitism’ exists in such a free-dom-sharing organization, yet the voting individuals acted aloofly and separately. Perhaps PNB members maybe assuming they needed to defend themselves from the messy masses seated in the back 1/5 of the room space.

Spanish-only-More-air-time: The motion to add an Extra 5 hrs/ week for all-spanish-speaking-only programming was passed with ease and hardly anyone dared object to this ethnic-minority demand – especially with their 6+ Spanish support group used Public Comment time for speaking- taking their 2min in vehement Spanish, then taking extra time 2 min not granted to English-speakers for the needed translation.

Using strong words, making extra programming demands, and even with claims of discrimination - as well as giving excuses for why all Spanish programming on air now does Not financially match or meet their on-air-time use.

Every KPFK LSB meeting has a Latino or 4 demanding more time for Spanish-only on-air time, regardless of their continual inability to help $$upport the the station to survive its debts and monetary obligations. But then, more time taken from other programs was given anyhow, money problems being ignored at this time.

PNB unnamed : The ‘others’ had no idea of who the PNB unpaid staff present were and while flimsy name cards were in front of most, no allowance to walk behind the seated members to note who was whom from where.

Mention was made of this ignoring the Public’s need to know, who were present and who voted for what, then a list of PNB members was finally distributed, but only after an angry request was delivered to surprised PNB group.

Exe Director : A positive surprise was to meet – even from afar – the newly selected [by outgoing iED] Executive Director – John Proffit – who had one of his major duties slipped out from under him a few days before arriving at his office to select or even interview a new KPFK General Manager.

Such trickery was not mentioned at this meeting but his presence provided some reassurance that someone with a more professional demeanor and expertise in Radio Station Management [30 years ] was now one of Us.

Control over meeting of argumentative members : The chair of this PNB group and the secretary were dedicated to keeping some order, and tried to do so repeatedly, tho it was obviously difficult - and their call-outs were often ignored while PNBers yelled, argued, and spoke over another ....or forgot what the motion on the table was at that time.

The official members were not timed nor limited in how long they went on...and on.... unless another official one fiercely disagreed.... And each often would repeatedly ‘forget’ to use the required microphone - so everyone in room could hear their personal versions – and because the whole audio was being recorded for on-line archive-listening, for later too.

Much of the long, day long, meetings seemed disorganized, disorderly, and inconsiderate of other members and the public too. Each representative seemed to demand their opinion to be given more attention or validity, as happens in Pacifica & station events.

TIME – not shared fairly, equally : The Timer person attempted to passively show a hand-made sign with “TIME” showing at the 2 min limit only for Public Comments, not for PNB discussions or arguments or rants , but this was ineffective for most who refused to see or did not bother looking and kept on and on and on....

until someone else objected to their unfairly usurping more time than allowed to others. The meek attempts were insufficient and tho requested 3x to have a sound-effect of time-up to alert speakers they had reached their limits and even gone over, this small device-system was not used –and maybe not even wanted.

The PNB job: Apparently, tho not mentioned at this meeting, each PNB members is unpaid with $$$, but weilds power and has access to the managements of their own stations and to the umbrella organization –

which is a big POWER reward & benefit. Each PNB are voted from their own station’s LSB for a set period and thus given this elevated status with accompanying [but never revealed] privileges, plus the work of attending such stressful meetings.

Accountability: It was not clear how each PNBer is held accountable or responsible for their actions from their station’s staff/public when acting at these meetings or if they act on their own volition and intentions instead of representing the radio station from where they emerge.

The usual : LACK OF TRANSPARENCY of anyone involved in a Pacifica radio station is always a noticeable issue, i.e. as to who was present, what their agendas or biases were, who they ally with and whom they oppose regularly. As these official members did not address nor act open nor friendly with any of the many Public members present, even when all were in same rooms at same time.

This gave the impression that the distance and separation was not only intentional, but defensive and self-protective so no questions can be asked nor anyone embarrassed.

see www.Pacifica.org for futher information and to see who is on their board, or to contact anyone there.

Their location apparently is in Berkeley tho that is not easily noted. KPFA is also nearby, while KPFT is in Houston, Tx, WBAI in NY, WPFW in Wash.DC and there are other ‘affiliates’ who use some of these programs too.

I grew up reading Mike Royko, a legendary Chicago columnist who was syndicated in 600 newspapers across the country.

A recurring setting for some of his columns was a barstool next to his buddy, Slats Grobnik.

Slats was born in a flat above a tavern, beginning a lifelong trend. Royko once wrote a column explaining that Slats played the accordion because his mother told him, “If you learn the accordion, you can earn money playing on weekends in taverns. And that will give you a chance to get to know your father.”

Outdoor history repeats itself, so it helps to take notes after outings
2015-07-04 19:00:33 (1 hours ago) 

Mariners have been keeping detailed logs of their daily activities for centuries. And some of the very best anglers throughout America have been recording detailed notes of their outings since they first began casting lures and baits.

This is important for fishermen because it’s impossible to recall with detail all the good things (and bad) that occur during an outing.

While fishing seasons, conditions, tide, water depth, clarity and salinity change often, wise are the good fishermen who take copious notes of their daily outings — because outdoor history does repeat itself.

KPFK in Pacifica's meeting - more descriptions
2015-07-04 19:50:45 (12 minutes ago) 
THIS IS A REPOST of excerpts pertaining to KPFK – our local Pacifica radio station: KPFK


from: http://www.unitedforcommunityradio.org/?p=2432


Pacifica’s National Board held one of its increasingly rare in-person board meetings in Los Angeles this past weekend, as LA station KPFK, the most financially successful Pacifica station as recently as 2013, continues its rapid free fall into insolvency.

In May, outgoing [Pacifica's] IED Margy Wilkinson saddled KPFK with a community college teacher as a new general manager, Leslie Radford, whose only credential appears to be a few years as a factional fighter on the local and national boards.

on Saturday, local issues at LA station KPFK took center stage. Many KPFK employees came to register their concerns about the managerial hire, expressed here by their selected representative Tony Bates....

The public comment period (you can see brief comments from that session from long-time LA overnight host Roy of Hollywood and former IED Grace Aaron) was followed by a meeting disruption when the board majority attempted to argue with the audience and were shouted down and told to return to their agenda. They did. A few brief clips of the disruption were recorded here and here.........


The meeting then moved on to several hours of discussion of a board mandate to increase the number of program broadcasts entirely in the Spanish language by 5 hours a week more than the current amount (which ranges from15 hours a week at KPFK to 0 hours a week at WPFW-DC). ...

The motion from the board’s Spanish Language Task Force is a must-carry mandate for all five stations, indicates the programs must be broadcast weekdays between 6:00am and 8:00pm, describes the programming as “permanent” and advises that if stations cannot assemble their own local program collectives they should then consider picking up programs from the existing 15 hours at KPFK....

,,,,,. Board member Rodrigo Argueta, who brought the motion, produces Voces de Libertad at KPFK and his wife produces Insurgencia Femina, two programs that recently came under fire from some segments of LA’s activist community.

The motion passed the board overwhemingly. All 4 KPFA board members voted for it as did all KPFK board members and the entire DC delegation.....

On Sunday, the board majority visibly split apart on several votes, including one that abolished on-air election information tutorials, which was voted down and then brought back up for reconsideration where it passed after modifying the length to five minutes and airing requirements to once in a month per program.

Board members Argueta, Casenave, Norman and Tucker broke with Brazon, Wilkinson and Edwards-Tiekert and restored the on-air announcements.

Similarly, a motion by KPFA board member Jose-Luis Fuentes to strip any supervisory authority by executive director John Proffitt over the organization’s chief financial officer was soundly defeated, with only Brazon and Medina from LA and Diaz and Brown from Washington DC supporting the idea of stripping the executive director from any financial operational supervision whatsoever............

On Sunday, the board majority visibly split apart on several votes......

Similarly, a motion by KPFA board member Jose-Luis Fuentes to strip any supervisory authority by [the newly hired ] executive director John Proffitt over the organization’s chief financial officer was soundly defeated, with only Brazon and Medina from LA and Diaz and Brown from Washington DC supporting the idea of stripping the executive director from any financial operational supervision whatsoever......

One of Leslie Radford’s first actions as KPFK’s general manager was to return to station premises a former board colleague of hers, Ian Johnston, who was removed from the local board after attempting to make citizens arrests with handcuffs of staff and board members, both in the LA station’s lobby and then at a board meeting held at the People’s College of the Law, which asked the KPFK local board to never meet there again after the Johnston incident.

The lobby incident was recorded on a security camera and while the footage was embargoed for a long period of time, (attempts to arrange a viewing for the KPFK local station board at the time were shut down by Radford and others in her faction at the time of the incident), it is now available.

The raw footage is 34:52 in length, and brief clips from before, during and after the incident are now on Youtube. You can view the 8 minutes of footage here.

They include Johnston’s altercation with the receptionist prior to the confrontation, a confrontation with IT director Jonathan Alexander, and the aftermath with several female KPFK employees encountering Johnston in the lobby.

Johnston, who was at the entire June 2015 meeting, was handcuff-free at this meeting, but threatened several members of the audience, board and KPFK staff, including following some for more than half a block outside the meeting area and threatening to “serve” them or “get them”.


The increasing level of tensions at KPFK is discussed here in a personal essay by former PNB treasurer Tracy Rosenberg, a KPFA listener rep from 2007-2013.

Dutchman Opens Limited Engagement at Edgemar Center for the Arts on July 15
2015-07-04 19:50:45 (12 minutes ago) 
Lula, a young white woman, encounters Clay, a Black man, on the subway. His “buttoned-up” attire would indicate that he is not from the streets, but solidly from the middle class. She attempts right there on the train to sexually provoke him. Each has pre-conceptions about The Other. Both are in for a big surprise.

First produced off-Broadway in 1964, Dutchman won the Obie Award. Amiri Baraka’s breakthrough play, co-produced by Edward Albee and presented and published when Baraka was still known as LeRoi Jones, launched the prolific African American writer into the front ranks of American public intellectuals. At the current moment, when race relations and related violence are once again commanding headlines, Dutchman feels as timely as ever.

The current production at Edgemar Center for the Arts will play for three performances only prior to traveling to the National Black Theatre Festival in Winston-Salem, NC, where it is a Festival selection this August.

Tanna Frederick stars as Lula. She has received critical acclaim for her stage appearances at Edgemar in recent years, including roles in Train to Zakopané, The Rainmaker (L.A. Times Critic’s Choice), Just 45 Minutes From Broadway, Sylvia and more. She is one of the queens of independent cinema, with starring roles in The M Word, Hollywood Dreams, Queen of the Lot, Irene in Time, Just 45 Minutes From Broadway, and more.

Siaka Massaquoi portrays Clay. His previous credits include the film Consinsual, the TV movie Wingmen, and the stage and screen versions of Saidi’s Song.

Levy Lee Simon directs. A prize-winning playwright, he is best-known for The Haitian Trilogy: For the Love of Freedom (L.A. Times Critic’s Choice) and The Magnificent Dunbar Hotel, both of which were produced by Robey Theatre Company. The Maginificent Dunbar Hotel proved to be the biggest ticket-seller in the twenty-year-old company’s history. Dutchman, The Magnificent Dunbar Hotel, and another play by Simon, The Last Revolutionary, will all be presented this year at the National Black Theatre Festival. Simon is the recipient of the Lorraine Hansberry Award and the Audelco Award, among other honors.

Frederick, Massaquoi and Simon are graduates of the University of Iowa, where the trio met.

Performances of Dutchman will be followed by a Q&A moderated by theatre critic Sheryl Aronson.

Dutchman. Written by Amiri Baraka. Directed by Levy Lee Simon. Produced by The Rainbow Theatre Company in association with Kilpatrick/Cambridge Theatre Arts and Jazz Lion Productions. Starring Tanna Frederick and Siaka Massaquoi. At Edgemar Center for the Arts, 2437 Main St., Santa Monica, CA 90405. July 15, 22 and 29, 2015. Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. Admission: $10. Reservations: (310) 392-7327. Online ticketing: www.edgemar.org

It was in 1986 that Morgan saw action with the Navy in Libya. Morgan said he’s still not free to talk about it, saying only it was serious stuff but that it occurred in peacetime. About the only thing from Libya that hit the news that year was the airstrikes Ronald Reagan ordered in retaliation for the bombing of a bistro in Berlin that killed two Americans and wounded 79 others.

2015-07-04 19:20:58 (42 minutes ago) 
An anonymous reader writes: Microsoft is building its new browser, Edge, with the intention of avoiding many of the flaws that plagued Internet Explorer over its long and tumultuous life. Part of this involves moving away from plug-ins, and Edge will not support ActiveX. Instead, they're focusing on interoperable media, and that means non-plug-in video players that meet HTML5 specs. Of course, not all video players want to disseminate their content for free, which means: DRM. Microsoft's Edge team has published a new post explaining how they'll be handling support for DRM and "premium media" in the new browser. They say, "Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge support DASH, MSE, EME and CENC natively, and other major browsers ship implementations of MSE and CENC compliant EME. This support allows developers to build plug-in free web video apps that runs across a huge range of platforms and devices, with each MSE/EME implementation built on top of a different media pipeline and DRM provider. In the days when DRM systems used proprietary file formats and encryption methods, this variation in DRM providers by browser would have presented a significant issue. With the development and use of Common Encryption (CENC), the problem is substantially reduced because the files are compressed in standard formats and encrypted using global industry standards. The service provider issues the keys and licenses necessary to consume the content in a given browser, but the website code, content and encryption keys are common across all of them, regardless of which DRM is in use."
