    CP-1 Diamond Anniversary Meetup(s)

    Posted by on 21st November 2017 (All posts by )

    “We are great and we are grand, we make bombs beneath our stands!”

     

    I have decided to attend various events around the 75th anniversary of Chicago Pile-1 and will therefore be in Hyde Park for about 48 hours, from late afternoon Thursday 30 November to late afternoon Saturday 2 December. As of now, the one known gathering is lunch at Valois, 1518 E 53rd (Harper Court, just west of Lake Park and the Metra Electric tracks), at 1 PM on Saturday.

    Others are possible, however. I will be at the physics colloquium on Thursday afternoon in Kersten (SW corner of 57th & Ellis) and was thinking vaguely of pizza at Giordano’s (on Blackstone just south of 53rd) afterward, which means 6-ish. I expect to spend much of both Friday and Saturday mornings prowling the bookstores on 57th, and should also be free after around 7 Friday evening, when what seems to be the main event wraps up at Mandel Hall.

    In general, respond in comments, and graze (Midwesterners don’t surf) around for official events.

    Carl in Portland

    Posted by on 14th May 2016 (All posts by )

    Recently I became “Carl from Portland” with a move from living in downtown Chicago to the West Coast. It has taken me a while to get settled but I wanted to say hello to my friends at Chicago Boyz.

    Originally I started taking pictures of all the weird people I saw in Portland – guys wearing kilts or fishnets, girls dressed up like bumblebees with ukuleles, and all manner of tattoos, nose rings and piercings. But then I realized – hey – that’s like taking a picture of a drunk, fat guy at a Bears game. Unless you500vip彩票安卓下载官网 can go beyond the obvious, don’t do it at all. Or maybe that is grist for a future post.

    First the highlights – Portland has an incredible location. Not only does the city offer everything you500vip彩票安卓下载官网’d expect in a big city (restaurants, concerts, cool stores, ability to walk around, nightlife) – they have little to no crime (when compared to ChiRaq) – but you500vip彩票安卓下载官网 can go about an hour and a half and be on the Pacific Ocean, or about an hour and a half the other way and be hiking in real mountains. Here is a photo I took at when I went there early in April for an unseasonably warm and beautiful day (I’m told). Below is a photo of from a recent hike we took last weekend.

Well, OK, maybe not all of those, but age, certainly, and physical/mental ability after stuffing you500vip彩票安卓下载官网rself with pizza and ingesting ethanol, will have protected status.

    Up for Air

    Posted by on 4th November 2015 (All posts by )

    I know that I have not been posting much lately – here or anywhere else lately; just the bare minimum of commenting on other people’s posts and other people’s blogs and websites, but I had a couple of projects for the Tiny Publishing Bidness to work on, and then the two major projects to finish, format and upload to various platforms. Yes, I decided to go all-out and finish two books in time for the Christmas marketing season this year. Amazingly, neither one was the one that I had declared at the beginning of the year that I would have all done and ready to launch by this time … yes, the adventures of you500vip彩票安卓下载官网ng Fredi Steinmetz in Gold Rush-era California is rolled back another year. Sigh. I still have to do an epic-truck-load of reading of contemporary accounts and skull out a plot sufficient and historically-accurate to fill the last half of the book; which so far in my head will include a stint in San Francisco the year of the epically well-organized Vigilante organization, encounters with various historic personages, to include William T. Sherman, Lotta Crabtree and her formidable mother, some murderous claim-jumpers and a you500vip彩票安卓下载官网ng woman seeking justice – while disguised as a boy. So, yes I will get on to that presently. After all was held at a third completed while I worked on and , and it didn’t seem to do any harm in the long-run.

    Chicagoboyz Commenting Issues

    Posted by Jonathan on 18th December 2014 (All posts by )

    A frequent commenter complained to me that he had tried to post comments and the comments either didn’t appear or he received a WordPress error message telling him that he had tried to post a duplicate comment. I’ve had similar problems myself once or twice. Is anyone else experiencing such issues? Please let me know if you500vip彩票安卓下载官网 are. There may be a tech issue, perhaps with our WordPress plugins. In that case it would help if I knew the scope of the problem so that I could find its cause.

    Thanks.

    UPDATE: The problem appears to be a browser issue.

    Cuba

    Posted by Michael Kennedy on 18th December 2014 (All posts by )

    Obama has announced that he will not only end the trade embargo with Cuba but

    President Obama, as he has shown all year, isn’t about to go quietly into the lame-duck night, even with Republicans ready to take full power down the street. With the stunning announcement Wednesday that the United States is set to normalize relations with Cuba, the president is closing his self-termed “Year of Action” with a thunderclap.

    In doing so, Obama is serving notice to new Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that a sitting president trumps a Congress divided both along party lines and within them. The shift comes about a month after the last time the president thrust his stick into the GOP’s eye, when Obama announced he was unilaterally providing widespread deportation relief to as many as 5 million illegal immigrants.

    I have no objection to ending the embargo, which has been mostly symbolic for years.

    Diplomatic relations is another matter.

    Even the Argentine Pope is Certainly, there is no reason why the Pope should recognize real democracy and freedom after a lifetime in Argentina.

    How To Read This Blog

    Posted by Jonathan on 26th October 2014 (All posts by )

    Chicago Boyz has been around since 2001 (2003 in its current form) and has thousands of archived posts on all kinds of topics from an unusually diverse and thoughtful group of contributors. Many of these archived posts are still worth reading.

    The problem is that the blog format is poorly suited for organizing information. Once it’s off the front page it tends to disappear. Information may want to be free but first you500vip彩票安卓下载官网 need to be able to find it.

    What to do? Manually creating, updating and occasionally reorganizing a table of contents is more work than I want, and I don’t think there’s a good way to automate it. Some of our contributors occasionally re-post outstanding examples of their own older posts, for which many thanks (and please keep doing it). Categorization of posts helps a bit. There’s a Google search box that works pretty well as an index if you500vip彩票安卓下载官网 know what you500vip彩票安卓下载官网 are looking for. I maintain a list of links on the blog’s right sidebar to a very few of our most interesting discussions. There’s also this new post that I have permalinked on the upper right sidebar where I hope readers will see it.

    Maybe there are additional things that we can do to make the gold in archived Chicago Boyz posts more accessible. Please feel free to chime in in the comments if you500vip彩票安卓下载官网 have any thoughts.

    The Cosmopolitans

    Posted by on 29th August 2014 (All posts by )

    Twenty-four years after the release of his first feature, “Metropolitan,” and two years after the release of his fourth, “Damsels in Distress,” Whit Stillman—the cinema’s novelist of manners, who reveals deep and enduring patterns beneath the shimmer of apparent frivolities—has written, directed, and produced the twenty-six-minute pilot of a TV-like series, “The Cosmopolitans,” for Amazon (where it premières tomorrow). It has a classical setup—Americans and other foreigners, members of a self-anointed social whirl, tripping through Paris—that, from the start, Stillman makes entirely his own, rendering it both contemporary and anachronistic, of the moment and rooted in time.

    Mike Lotus Speaking in Paris, France on May 23, 2014 about “America 3.0, Decentralization and the Tenth Amendment”

    Posted by Lexington Green on 1st May 2014 (All posts by )

    I will be speaking at the AFEA (The French Association for American Studies, Association Francaise d’'Etudes Américaines) 2014 Conference. The title of the conference is The USA: Models, Counter-Models, The End of Models?

    I will participate in a panel entitled “American Politics: What future model for political America: manifestly gridlocked destiny or reinvented union?” The panel will be at 8:15 to 11:45 a.m. on May 23, 2014. The venue is Université Paris 3 Sorbonne Nouvelle (13 rue Santeuil).

    The panel will consist of Jér^ome Noirot, of the Ecole Centrale, Lyon, the organizer of the panel, myself, and the following distinguished persons, speaking on the following subjects:

    Ashley Byock (Edgewood College), << The Bonded/Resistant Slave Body and The Emergence of Neoliberalism in the U.S. Context >>.
    Jér^ome Viala-Gaudefroy (Université Sorbonne Nouvelle-Paris 3), <>.
    Francois Vergniollle de Chantal (Université Paris Diderot), <>.

    I will speak on “America 3.0, Decentralization and the Tenth Amendment.”

    (Don’t tell anyone, but I am currently mugging up on the Tenth Amendment!)

    Immense thanks to Jér^ome Noirot for this invitation. Initially Jim Bennett was the invitee, but Jim could not make it. So I am pinch hitting for the maestro!

    I also offer my heartfelt thanks to two very good friends whose financial support helped to make this trip possible, and two a third old friend who kindly offered to let me stay at his 500vip彩票安卓下载官网 in Paris.

    A detailed description of the issues to be raised in the panel discussion is below the fold.
