    first_imgRaging Moderate by Will DurstIt’s like a train wreck. Fascinating, repellant, and loud, all at the same time. Talking about the American presidential sweepstakes. And, as ratings for the last few debates seem to indicate, very hard to look away. It was Winston Churchill who called our election process, “a circus wrapped in a game show covered in poisonous weasel glitter.” And if he didn’t, he should have.Look at how we treat these poor people. Gang debates. Smug interrogators. Partisan witch hunts. Hostile examinations. Substandard lecterns. Marathon fund-raisers with cold congealed Swedish meatballs in a watery mustard sauce.What we end up with is scarred, dehydrated, emotional wrecks confused by simple math and their shoes. And that’s another question: Who would want this job? What kind of crazy masochistic flippo-unit voluntarily undertakes this mission of barbarous self- flagellation? Not just jumping into the flaming crucible of brutish internecine combat, but dragging their families along with them? You would not be far off concluding that anybody who can be elected president, shouldn’t be.Even the serious candidates quickly turn into bewildered patsies sentenced to months of trudging through Iowa and New Hampshire mud. Constantly dodging teams of opposition researchers looking for anything resembling dirt. And forced to eat gas station sushi.There has got to be a better way to pick the leader of the free world. The system we have now is much too long, totally fractious, unseemly, indecorous, vicious and unbecoming. Put those all together and what do you get: Television.If we’re going to run this like a reality show, let’s run it like a reality show. We already got them jumping through hoops, all we need are enough cameras to capture the action. It’s an award-winning, mini-series waiting for the right producer.Auction off the rights to the highest bidding network and let them fold it into one of their signature franchises. “America’s Next Top Politician.” “Dancing With the Office- Seekers.” “Keeping up with the Roosevelts.” “So You Think You Can Negotiate with Putin?” “Hell’s Campaign Trail.” “America’s Got BS.” The Real Hypocrites of Washington D.C.” “Project Inauguration.” Just insert some loophole that keeps CNBC out of the running.“Apprentice” morphed into “Celebrity Apprentice,” why not “Presidential Apprentice?” Let Donald Trump experience the joy of being fired from both ends. CBS could transform their hour each week to “The Amazing Race: Oval Office.” Only a few disgruntled campaign managers would quibble with calling it “The Biggest Loser.”Many shows wouldn’t need any alteration. “Big Brother” sort of already tangentially fits. As does “The Real World,” in a vague ironic sense. “Shark Tank,” definitely. “American Idol,” yeah, right, dream on. “The Voice,” or more aptly, “The Lack of Voice.”With the show’s emphasis on backstabbing and blindsiding, “Survivor: Foggy Bottom” is almost a perfect fit. We could even mimic the format and offer clues to help contestants find hidden immunity idols. “Congratulations. You may skip Nevada and South Carolina and go straight to Super Tuesday.”A number of reality show conventions could be adopted and/ or adapted. The weekly weigh in when they strip down to their undies would immediately trigger Must See TV. And finally, forget the hand on the Bible, on January 21, 2017, Chief Justice Roberts offers up to the incoming president… one single red rose.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

  • Police in Nevada Reveal New Details About Episode That Left 4 Dead

    first_imgThe episode began around 11 a.m. Tuesday, when the police were called to an apartment complex on Stonelake Cove Avenue, officials said.

The police said they had determined that Mr. Bourne had fired “multiple rounds inside the vehicle.”The police did not say how many shots had been fired or by whom they had been fired.

The names of the victims were not released.- Advertisement – Officer Katrina Farrell, a spokeswoman for the Police Department, said the matter was “still under investigation” and declined to provide more information. There is police body-camera footage from the episode, and that is “typically” released within a week or two, she said.

  • A contract was signed to support the Cyclotourism Development Program on the continent

    first_imgSource: The ministry of tourism Minister of Tourism Gari Cappelli is in Koprivnica where he met with Koprivnica-Križevci County Prefect Darko Koren and on that occasion signed a support agreement based on the Cyclotourism Development Program on the Continent in 2019. The signing of the contract took place at 08.45 in the County offices. The round table and panel discussion “Future in Croatia” are part of a large national action Croatian Intelligence in Croatia, the ultimate goal of which is to keep young educated people in Croatia.

  • Use ice-breaker to reduce river ice dams

    first_imgThe March 25 article, “State plans $500k study of ice jams,” indicates the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) will fund another study of the Mohawk river basin. The “ice jam flooding” presentation by Professor John Garver at the Mohawk Watershed Symposium was awesome and indicated to me how the 2012-2016 Mohawk River Basin Action Agenda to “promote flood hazard risk reduction” and the draft 2018-2022 Mohawk River Basin Action Agenda item to “understand and predict the hazards associated with ice jams through monitoring” needs action, not study.Recently, it was reported the Unified Military Affairs Council and several federal and state government representatives emphasized how the Naval, Army and air military facilities in our region influence our economy and protect our communities. In addition, the DEC and the state Canal Corporation have responsibility regarding water resources in the basin. Even though DEC has two water resource research vessels located in the Great Lakes, the Canal Corporation has a fleet of 100 vessels throughout the canal system.Is it possible for the military affairs supporters to request the U.S. Coast Guard lease one of its 65-foot ice-breaker tugs to the Canal Corporation and DEC to prevent ice jams in the Mohawk Basin? Also, is it possible for the Mohawk Basin municipal governments, academic institutions and non-profit conservation agencies to make a request to the Regional Economic Development Councils to obtain money?I think an ice-breaker tug would keep a water flow channel open in the winter to prevent ice jams. It could be equipped with water resource technology to research water quality for fish, wildlife and humans; monitor inappropriate chemical discharges by municipalities and businesses; and locate sediment build-up. Meanwhile, they could be developing an education-and-training program for a workforce to protect lives and our resources.Michael McGlynnWatervlietMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusGov.

  • Industrial COVID-19 clusters in Bekasi, Karawang reach 500 cases

    first_imgSiska said more than 54,000 tests were being conducted a week. “We are indeed targeting 105,000 tests for the next two weeks,” she said.The West Java administration is distributing about 15,000 portable polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test kits and is waiting for the arrival of 250,000 PCR test kits from the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB).“The governor is providing assistance in the form of portable PCR test kits to 27 regencies and cities to increase tracing and testing capacity to speed up treatment and isolation of cases,” Siska said.A total of 585,598 COVID-19 tests have been conducted in West Java, consisting of 288,019 PCR tests and 297,579 rapid tests. The West Java Industry and Trade Agency said the National Industry Information System (SINAS) application was being used to monitor the enforcement of health protocols in the industrial sector.Read also: COVID-19 haunts industrial zones in Indonesia“Through SINAS, all companies that have operational and mobility permits (IOMKI) must report every week on the implementation of health protocols,” said Dendi Hermandi, an official at the agency.Dendi said 5,585 industrial firms in West Java had received IOMKI, which allowed them to operate during the pandemic, including those that later discovered positive cases in Jababeka, MM2100 and Deltamas.“Our investigations found that one of the companies was closed because the spread of the cases was not sectorial. Apparently, the first person exposed to the virus had high mobility,” he said.He added that the other companies with confirmed cases were still allowed to operate, except in the production units where the cases had been found.The local government has requested the improvement of a number of COVID-19 prevention protocols in industrial areas, including a ban on smoking areas and on serving boxed rice to workers.“It is also expected that industrial areas provide self-isolation facilities because those prepared by the government are limited,” he said.Separately, the East Jakarta Manpower, Transmigration and Energy Agency said it would temporarily close biscuit factory PT Khong Guan, after some employees were found to have COVID-19. However, the closure was to take place after the agency monitored and evaluated the factory on Tuesday.“If it is true that there are positive cases, we must close the company,” the agency’s head, Galuh Prasiwi, said on Monday.The Ciracas district community health center (Puskesmas) previously reported that 28 of the 170 rapid tests performed at the Khong Guan factory were reactive. Two people were later confirmed to have COVID-19 through swab tests. (syk)Topics : Industrial COVID-19 clusters discovered in the Bekasi and Karawang regencies of West Java reached 500 cases on Tuesday, prompting demands for increased testing and tracing.“[Cases have been found] in three industrial areas, namely Jababeka, MM2100 and Deltamas.
