  • Georgia Republicans are pissed they lost after a surge in mail voting, so now they want to curb it

    first_img– Advertisement – For now, fortunately, there’s nothing Fleming can do to undermine mail voting before the all-important Senate runoffs on Jan. 5. However, there’s plenty we can do: Republicans, however, are not serious thinkers, least of all state Rep. Barry Fleming, who chairs the Judiciary Committee in the Georgia House. His reaction to the newfound popularity of mail voting is so unhinged we must reproduce it in full:Instead, Democrats are relying on the always-suspect absentee balloting process to inch ahead in Georgia and other close states. If elections were like coastal cities, absentee balloting would be the shady part of town down near the docks you do not want to wander into because the chance of being shanghaied is significant. Expect the Georgia Legislature to address that in our next session in January.This analogy is so bonkers it’s not worth parsing (does he think voters are somehow being tricked into using absentee ballots?), but the real problem is that Fleming has a powerful perch from which he can make voting harder. When he says we should expect Georgia Republicans to find new ways to suppress the vote, we should believe him—and prepare for a fight.- Advertisement –last_img read more

  • The international conference ‘Creating and managing experiences in cultural tourism’ started in Šibenik

    first_imgThe international conference ‘Creating and managing experiences in cultural tourism’ has started in Šibenik. The conference is held in the fortress of St. Mihovil from June 22 to 24 as part of the program of the 57th International Children’s Festival, and the conference will seek to provide answers to open questions, detect obstacles and present stimulating examples of good practice to better understand the application of economics of experience in tourism.‘The International Children’s Festival is, and I’ve really traveled the world, as far as theater is concerned, one of the few theater events that plays out its city. I think it is an ideal story for this topic of ours that we will talk about these two days, the topic of cultural tourism and creating experiences’, said Jasen Bokko, organizer of the international conference.Fortress of St. Mihovila once took the title of cultural attraction in Croatia, so it is not surprising that St. Mihovil was chosen as the venue for the event, which brought together numerous experts from Croatia and abroad who will speak in the coming days on the topic of designing the experience of cultural tourism, the economy of experience or creativity in a transformational economy. ‘I hope that today’s conference will offer an insight into how we do it and that we will learn something from each other. It is really difficult to approach each individual. One of the possible ways is to focus on topics that we know are more – less common to all mankind, so in Croatia we have perhaps one of the best examples we are proud of. We have the Museum of Broken Relationships because we were all in a kind of love affair, so we broke it up and each of us on the consumer side knows what it feels like. However, what about topics that are very specific. Research can help but not in every concrete, individual example’, said Daniela Angelina Jelinčić, from the Institute for Development and International Relations in Croatia, where, as she pointed out, they work not only with the brain but also with emotions.In addition to Jelinčić, lectures in the first part of the day were also given by Hrvoje Hribar, until recently director of the Croatian Audiovisual Center, Alexander McCuaig from Great Britain, Matko Burić, producer of Motovun Film Festival and Davinia Gale from Malta. The presentation and lectures continue in the afternoon, and again on Friday, June 23, while the working language of the conference is Croatian and English.See the conference program herelast_img read more

  • Lakers trade D’Angelo Russell, Timofey Mozgov to Nets for Brook Lopez, 27th pick

    first_imgThe Lakers made two moves on Tuesday that strongly established the direction of their rebuilding project. They untethered themselves from of one of the team’s most expensive contracts, while dealing a young player who received mixed reviews about his development and maturity.Shortly after Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson and General Manager Rob Pelinka began negotiating with the Indiana Pacers for forward Paul George, the Lakers traded third-year guard D’Angelo Russell and veteran center Timofey Mozgov to the Brooklyn Nets for center Brook Lopez and the 27th pick in Thursday’s NBA draft.The move gave the Lakers significant salary cap relief and enough room to sign two max-contract players in the 2018 offseason when George, LeBron James and Russell Westbrook might become available in free agency. While Mozgov had three years remaining on his $48 million contract, Russell had one more season on his rookie contract worth $5.5 million with a team option for $7 million the following season.Russell’s departure highlights the Lakers’ complicated feelings about his development after selecting him with the No. 2 pick in the 2015 draft. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersOn one hand, Russell averaged 15.6 points, 4.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game, numbers that only Johnson matched as a Laker in his sophomore season. On the other hand, several people in the Lakers organization had become increasingly frustrated with the lack of substantial improvement in his attitude and work habits. On a more practical level, the Lakers dealt Russell, 21, partly to accommodate the strong likelihood they will draft UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball with the No. 2 pick in Thursday’s draft.Despite the Lakers’ mixed feelings about Russell, one of his former teammates offered public support. Lakers forward Larry Nance Jr. tweeted out a photo of him from last year’s Las Vegas Summer League when he mimicked Russell’s “ice-in-my-veins” gesture, pointing at the veins of his left forearm the way Russell would do after making a key shot.Mozgov, 30, provided modest production (7.4 points, 4.9 rebounds) before eventually losing his starting spot to rookie center Ivica Zubac last season. Lopez provided more significant contributions (20.5 points, 5.4 rebounds) for Brooklyn last season and enters this season with a less expensive price tag (his $22 million contract expires next summer). The Lakers view Lopez, 29, as a so-called “stretch-five” after he shot 34.6 percent from 3-point range (seventh best among NBA starting centers) on a league-leading 387 attempts among starting centers. The move also allows Zubac, 20, to grow without the pressure of being the team’s definitive starter.This might just mark the beginning of the Lakers’ offseason moves.The Pacers are “highly likely” to trade George before Thursday’s draft after his representatives informed them this week that he planned to become a free agent next season. The Lakers offered a combination that includes fourth-year forward Julius Randle, 22, or fourth-year guard Jordan Clarkson, 25, as well as the No. 27 and No. 28 picks, according to sources. On Tuesday evening, talks were at a standstill over the Pacers’ hope to extract more from the deal, sources said.center_img Though the Pacers might want more in a deal, the Lakers have gone into these conversations holding firm on two things. They want to keep their No. 2 pick and 19-year-old second-year forward Brandon Ingram, something they have reiterated while making and listening to trade proposals this spring. Although Ingram averaged 9.4 points on only 40.2 percent shooting and has a wiry frame, he has impressed the Lakers with his steady improvement, positional versatility, defense, ball handling, aggressiveness and post play. The Lakers have also heard from draft prospects that they would like to play with him.Though the Lakers have remained reluctant to trade their No. 2 pick to Indiana, TNT reporter David Aldridge reported the Lakers offered it to Sacramento for its fifth and 10th picks. Though the Kings declined the offer, Aldridge reported the Lakers planned to offer one of Sacramento’s picks along with their 27th and 28th picks to Indiana for George.All of this leaves the Lakers in a precarious situation. They could wait for George, who has told the Pacers he plans to join the Lakers when he becomes an unrestricted free agent next summer, in hopes of complementing him with a talented and, at that point, further developed roster. But banking on George not changing his mind over the next 12 months could leave the Lakers vulnerable. The Pacers almost surely would trade him to another team, which would then have a season to convince George to sign a long-term deal with them. While the Clippers had preliminary discussions about George, the Rockets, Cavaliers, Celtics and Wizards are among other teams that have reportedly talked to the Pacers.The Lakers and Pacers are expected to resume talks on Wednesday, when the Lakers will also learn if forward Nick Young plans to exercise his $5.7 million player option for next season.Staff writer Bill Oram contributed to this report.last_img read more

  • Revival of ‘The Corn State’ license plate proposed

    first_imgDES MOINES — An eastern Iowa farmer who’s been in the legislature nearly 12 years is proposing a new “corn state” license plate design. Senator Tim Kapucian of Keystone has drafted a bill that would carry out his vision.“It’ll say at the top of the plate: ‘The Corn State’ and then it’ll be a white plate with black letters,” Kapucian says, “and then behind the lettering there’ll be some type of an ear of corn.”Kapucian says when he saw how popular the state’s new “black out” specialty license plates have been, he decided to ask his fellow legislators to embrace this idea. Kapucian expects plenty of farmers to be interested in getting one of these plates for their pick-ups.“I know I’m going to be in line to get one of these if we get it done,” Kapucian says.Kapucian’s neighbor has a license plate collection. It includes a mid-1950s black-and-white plate that has “THE CORN STATE” in capital letters at the bottom of the plate.“Every state has something on their license plate that makes them stand out and we used to have that…If people recognize an ear of corn, they’ll think: ‘Iowa!” he says. “You know you see the bucking bronc with the cowboy, we know that’s Wyoming.”Kapucian’s plate plan has cleared a Senate subcommittee. His bill would have to pass through at least five other steps in the legislative process before it could be sent to the governor for review.last_img read more
