Soundtrack for the News: How Long Has This Been Going On

Time for some soundtracks for our current situation. Why not start off with a classic, featuring Paul Carrack and Eric Clapton, performing “How Long Has This Been Going On”, in Switzerland. A perfect song for our less than perfect situations around the world. It asks all the right questions, rouses all the right feelings, and while it may not solve anything, it will make you feel a little bit better, a little more optimistic about what comes next.

Special thanks to YouTube for making the music available. “Sound Track For the News”  post  produced by Perception Engineering and The Media Bunker team, who spend a lot of time listening and listening and listening some more to the songs and performances.  Copyright 2020 donald pierce and SouthchesterGroup, LLC. Stay well, stay safe, and wash your hands. And practice safe distancing….it’s not so bad.

This is a special post from DonaldPierce.Com (“DPC”)  designed to serve as a workbook/guide/clearing house of current and valid information on CV (also known as Covid-19). We will add new material to the sources, articles, and links listed here on a regular basis. Our last post was on 21 May 2020. Articles listed in the order in which they were published. Please note that this site spotlighted the positive results of Remdesivir on Coronavirus patients a week before national media noticed the drug. It is now the lead drug in treatment testing. All the more reason to stay in touch with our research databank. We also added the very complete Coronavirus Dashboard from Axios, which has been running on The Nightshift international news sites (as well as Axios, of course).

The Coronavirus Guide:15 May 2020

 

This is a special post from DonaldPierce.Com (“DPC”)  designed to serve as a workbook/guide/clearing house of current and valid information on CV (also known as Covid-19). We will add new material to the sources, articles, and links listed here on a regular basis. Our last post was on 14 May 2020. Most recent articles are marked by an asterisk. Please note that this site spotlighted the positive results of Remdesivir on Coronavirus patients a week before national media noticed the drug. It is now the lead drug in treatment testing. All the more reason to stay in touch with our research databank. We also added the very complete Coronavirus Dashboard from Axios, which has been running on The Nightshift international news sites (as well as Axios, of course).

One Song: Alessia Caro “October”

Alessia Cara performs one of her hit songs, “October” for Jimmy Fallon’s very innovative at-home version of The Tonight Show. A terrific artist and a surprisingly good rendition and recording. Very nice video, too (pay attention and you can see the rhythm section going in).

Special thanks to YouTube(and the Tonight Show) for making the music available. “One Song” post  produced by Perception Engineering and The Media Bunker team, who spent a lot of time listening and listening and listening some more to the song and performance. Alessia’s got it going on. Copyright 2020 donald pierce and SouthchesterGroup, LLC. Stay well, stay safe, and wash your hands. And practice safe distancing….it’s not so bad.

The Coronavirus Guide: 8 May 2020

 

This is a special post from DonaldPierce.Com (“DPC”)  designed to serve as a workbook/guide/clearing house of current and valid information on CV (also known as Covid-19). We will add new material to the sources, articles, and links listed here on a regular basis. Our last post was on 7 May 2020. Most recent articles are marked by an asterisk. Please note that this site spotlighted the positive results of Remdesivir on Coronavirus patients a week before national media noticed the drug. It is now the lead drug in treatment testing. All the more reason to stay in touch with our research databank. We also added the very complete Coronavirus Dashboard from Axios, which has been running on The Nightshift international news sites (as well as Axios, of course).

Downhill

In another era, decades ago, traditions and the clubs to support them flourished in the world’s great resorts and high adventure locations. One of these great clubs is the St. Moritz Tobogganing Club, founded in the late 1800s. The St.M.T.C. is the home of the world famous Cresta Run( if you’ve heard of the Cresta Run, you’ve been raised in a very appropriate household) , a 3/4 mile sledding run on which riders can top 80MPH. The riders go down the run on a skeleton sled, a sliding device that is brutally simple and bears little resemblence to the Flexible Flyer you had a kid; it has no steering mechanism and is steered by the shifting of the rider’s weight. A skeleton is a one person only device and skeleton riding as a sport is considered worthy enough to be a sport in the Winter Olympics. Traditions evolve to survive and to reflect changing times and the St.M.T.C. is no exception; although it once had a “no women” membership policy (denying access to the famed Cresta Run)times change and in 2018 the club decided to allow women into the club (in a bit of a test). Now, one fifth of the 1250 members of the club are female. In March, the New York Times ran a terrific article on the Cresta Run, the St.M.T.C. and the changing times in which we live.  The article is well worth your attention as it reminds us, again, of a past and cultural history that is special and well worth preserving. Perhaps, one day in the near future, “the new normal” will have settled in and we can enjoy again some of the traditions and events which make life so special. In quarantine, however, we will have be satisfied with looking back.

The Coronavirus Guide: 25 April 2020

 

This is a special post from DonaldPierce.Com (“DPC”)  designed to serve as a workbook/guide/clearing house of current and valid information on CV (also known as Covid-19). We will add new material to the sources, articles, and links listed here on a regular basis. Our last post was on 24 April 2020. Most recent articles are marked by an asterisk. Please note that this site spotlighted the positive results of Remdesivir on Coronavirus patients a week before national media noticed the drug. Please also note that later results on Remdesivir were not so positive. Next. We also added the very complete Coronavirus Dashboard from Axios, which has been running on The Nightshift international news sites (as well as Axios, of course) for about three weeks. All the more reason to stay in touch with our research databank.

Transitions: Stirling Moss, Race Car Driver (1929-2020)

 

Stirling Moss died in bed.

Unthinkable.

The legendary British racing driver, who ran in over 500 races, racing all types of cars from F1 to sports cars, and was one of the most decorated and honored race car drivers of all time passed away in London on Sunday,  12 April 2020, after a long illness at the age of 90 

No one who knew Moss in his racing years—that would be from 5 to about 80 (he participated in his last racing meet at age 81 at Le Mans in a special event)—would believe such a thing could be true. He had just exposed himself too often, in too many different types of circuits, in too dangerous conditions (he was very, very good in rain and on ice), at too many different times of the day (late night endurance racing), to make it through to a very ripe old age. But, defying the odds (one of his specialties) he  did spend a lot of time in harm’s way, and he walked away from it in one piece. His destiny was not to go out in a ball of fire.

Moss himself endorsed the idea he was going to be one of racing’s casualties in a biography written by the brilliant Ken W. Purdy, called “All But My Life”. The book, which is a very great read and was based on Purdy’s extensive interviews with Moss, details a life of living at the edge of everything he liked, from beautiful girls to race cars to equestrian competitions. We’ll leave it to Purdy and other sources to detail that side of his life.  Moss, however, proved adept at escaping the fate that became so many of his contemporaries. 

A committed prodigy in a race car, Moss entered 529 races and won 212 of them. He was not a specialist, like today’s F1 or sports car drivers are, who only drive one type of car on one type of track in one type of competition. Moss drove everything, from the Monte Carlo Rallye to the 12 Hours of Sebring to the F1 Grand Prix of Germany. He ran F1, sports cars, rally cars, hill climbs, endurance racers. He is one of only three drivers to win a Coupe d’Or  for three consecutive penalty free runs in the Alpine Rally. He was second in the 1952 Monte Carlo Rallye, with driver Desmond Scannell and a magazine editor, John Cooper,  as co-drivers. He was the first non-American to win the 12 Hours of Sebring and won the 1000KM of Nurburging endurance race three times in sports cars. It was said that Moss would drive anything with four wheels and a place to sit and it was said that he had driven 107 different types of cars He drove cars from Aston Martin  (in Aston’s glory years), Vanwall, Ferrari, Maserati, Lotus, Cooper, Porsche; he drove for factory teams and private teams (his partnership with private team owner Rob Walker was particular effective). His attraction to racing was deep and passionate. 

Moss has been described as the greatest driver to “never win an F1 Championship”; from 1955 to 1961, he was runner up to the Championship 4 times and placed third three times. There are writers (Purdy among them) who believe that Moss’ failure to win an F1 Championship was because of his patriotic affinity for racing English cars at a time when the very best F1 cars were produced by Mercedes or Ferrari or Maserati. Enzo Ferrari believe that Moss would have won multiple F1 Championships if he had been “more reasonable and less passionate” and driven F1 cars produced by other manufacturers, not just English ones. Moss believed he could win in anything and actually he was right; He literally gave away the F1 Championship in one year through an act of sportsmanship, on behalf of fellow English driver Mike Hawthorne in 1958. If the near misses of the F1 Championship bothered Moss, he never mentioned it, saying that it was the respect of his fellow drivers that meant the most to him; he spent zero time of his life in the shade of not winning an F1 title.

Moss was exquisitely gifted as a race car driver, with a terrific sense of balance, great eyesight, superb reflexes and instincts honed from starting to drive at age 5. It was said that he was the fittest man to ever race in F1 and that, combined with his extreme versatility, helped to created his legend. Moss was the ultimate natural racer, extremely precise in “setting up” car for a race. Once, he was racing in an F1 off-season series held in Australia and had just set the lap record when, walking past another driver, the driver commented “good run, Stirling, but that new Lotus is a big help”. Realizing that the other driver was not having a good session, Stirling Moss then graciously asked the other driver if he might take a few laps around the course, just to check out the car.

The driver consented.

Moss did a few laps, broke the record he had just set, and then pulled back up to his fellow competitor. Getting out of the car, he casually noted that “nothing’s wrong with the car” and walked off. He was just that good.

Purdy noted that Moss also had exceptional eyesight, often picking out a particularly attractive girl from a crowd during a race and setting up a dinner date for later; he was a gifted equestrian and no doubt would have been a world class competitor had he continued in that sport. His sister, Pat, was also a terrific rider and eventually ended being a world-class rally driver as well (she married world rally champion Erik Carlsson). Moss’ ability to drive any car was unique and because he loved racing so much, he raced a lot. Check out this link to Moss’ driving record on WikiPedia to get an idea of the range of the man’s career.

Moss raced in the era, from the 1940s to the 1960s, also known as the “killer years”,  when the sport was at its most lethal. The line “when sex was safe and racing was dangerous” has been applied without irony to that period. Everything was hazardous then: the cars, the circuits, the helmets, the partying, the safety regulations; an incredible number of drivers died in racing accidents. Twenty-nine F1 drivers died in the sixties alone.  The rule of the sport then was “everyone has one big accident; if it doesn’t kill you, you’ll be fine” but no one wanted to test that rule, which proved to be uneven. Lots didn’t get a second chance. Lots of drivers had multiple crashes with the last one killing them(this holds true in stock car racing as well as F1 and sports cars). 

Moss was not impervious to the hazards of the sport. After all, there are three ways to have a wreck in a race car: you can make a mistake, the other driver(s) can make a mistake, or the car can break. It doesn’t have to be your fault, but you are just as dead if someone else causes the accident or if the car breaks. It can happen and mishaps play no favorites, everyone will get their share. He ran into dirt embankments, had brakes fail and wheels roll off, suffered flat tires. But he raced on, seemingly bulletproof.  Moss   had his first serious wreck in an F1 Grand Prix car  in 1960 and it made him miss three races on the F1 calendar that year, but he recovered and finished his year by winning the U.S. Grand Prix.

 It all came to an end two years later. In 1962, he suffered another racing crash, this one severe enough to put him into a coma for a month; he had eye and head injuries and Moss was partially paralyzed  on the left side of his body. A difficult recovery followed and later that same year, after recuperation from the accident,  he had a private test in a Lotus 19 on a closed track.  After his session, he checked his times, found he was off by a few tenths of a second vs. his previous best and announced his retirement from professional racing. In Moss’s mind, Stirling Moss not-at-his-best—even by a tenth of a second– was not Stirling Moss. It was time to go. He was 33. 

After racing, Stirling Moss was a major sports hero in Great Britain, a world wide sports celebrity,  and always a fixture on the automobile and racing scene. In many ways, the living legend was the patriarch of the sport; his appearance brought out the best aspects of racing: a legend with easy good manners, innate kindness, a sporting outlook on competition and impeccable etiquette. While racing, he was the highest paid driver in the sport, making a million dollars a year in an era when a million dollars was a very, very significant sum. He invested well,  lived a very active (and decorated life) and avoided conflict and scandal; He remained someone to look up to, not just for his racing achievements, but for the way he conducted his life out of racing.

Stirling Moss won so many memorable races, it’s hard to pick one out for special recognition, but the general consensus is that his win in the 1955 Mille Miglia (also known as Rome-Brescia-Rome), a race staged over a 1000 mile course of public roads in Italy. The race over very deadly open roads (ever driven in Italy?) was a timed event: fastest car from start to finish wins. Moss was driving the legendary Mercedes-Benz 300SLR and for a navigator he took motoring journalist Denis Jenkinson, who had mapped the route  and turned the map into a scroll which could be advanced as they drove on. The map was precise enough—and Moss had enough confidence in Jenkinson’s work—that Moss would enter uphill blind corners at over 170 MPH, the car would fly through the air at the crest of the hill, and  then land and move on. Moss and Jenkinson won the event, averaging 99MPH.

Second in the event was another legend, Moss’s friend, Juan Manual Fangio, also in a Mercedes 300SLR; he was Moss’s Mercedes team mate for the race and finished an astounding thirty-two minutes behind Stirling. Racing historian Doug Nye considered Mille Miglia win to be “the most iconic single-day’s drive in motor racing history”. For others, it just confirmed that Moss was simply the most gifted race driver of his era, or perhaps any era, because of his ability to win in so many different types of competition. Fangio, a gracious, fierce competitor, was five times F1 champion and a competitor of Moss’ on the F1 circuit. But in matched cars on that historic day,, he was half-an-hour behind Moss in the Mille Miglia. 

To escape alive from over 500 races is a bit of a miracle, but Moss did it and lived a very full life over the next 65 years.

So now, as the motor racing press writes the appreciations, the racing teams send their regrets, the great drivers acknowledge the passing of a contemporary, the newspapers fine tune their obituaries, you will have ample opportunity to read about the man who is debatably the best race car driver of all time, a true legend in a dangerous and deadly sport,  and who added one more unthinkable thing to his incredible list of achievements in this life.

Stirling Moss died in bed.

The Poetry of Rock: “Angel from Montgomery” by John Prine

 

 

For a couple of years, the idea has been kicked around the Media Bunker that we need to do a series of posts on the Poetry of Rock. We’re the type that really listens to music, all of it—the intros, the solos, the backing vocals, and the words, especially the words. 

There are plenty who love music, but really don’t do the deep dive into the lyrics, where so much of the soul and message of a song live.

We do, because so much of the magic of music is in the lyrics. Everyone knows a song that could be great, but the lyrics hold it back…..for a song to be complete, to be totally great, it’s got to have both a great tune and outstanding musicianship and great lyrics. The bar is high.

Most of us were introduced to poetry in school at some level but eventually moved away/on from it as we got older. When was the last time you actually bought a book of poetry, by anyone?

But poetry’s still here, a bigger part of our lives than you would image if you just recognize that it now comes wrapped in music as the lyrics of the songs we hear all around us. Like all art, beauty is in the eye (or the ear) of the beholder. Some lyrics are great, some are nonsense, and some are unforgettable and legendary. Here in the media bunker, we lean in to the unforgettable and legendary, and so it’s time to resurrect the “Poetry of Rock” series (and we are including all forms of music in the Rock category, just to keep it simple) and so will be bringing out some examples of the great lyrics that accompanies great music (and vice versa) to show our appreciation for the genius level art that can surround us, if we just look a bit, do a drill down. 

This post was brought to the top of the editorial calendar by one event: the death of singer/songwriter John Prine. Prine was a humble man with an uncommon gift—he was one of the very best songwriters of his generation, good enough that he was someone Bob Dylan listened to. That’s good.  You can read about Prine’s life in this obituary from The New York Times. It’s well worth your time, as is this editorial from the Times that focuses (with performances)  on a key selection of John Prine’s best songs

One of Prine’s very best songs–and he had a bunch of them–was the song “Angel from Montgomery”. The lyrics are below:

I am an old woman named after my mother
My old man is another child that’s grown old
If dreams were lightning, thunder were desire
This old house would have burnt down a long time ago
Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go
When I was a young girl well, I had me a cowboy
He weren’t much to look at, just free rambling man
But that was a long time and no matter how I try
The years just flow by like a broken down dam
Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go
There’s flies in the kitchen I can hear

–John Prine

The song is mournful, painful, biographical, real, raw. The lyrics are short, the poetry is brief, but what’s not included in word is implied by its absence. It is, in short, a bit of a miracle. To fully grasp the genius of Prine is to hear his music performed, and one of the very best versions of this song is the one by Bonnie Raitt. But to add to the depth, we managed to find a live performance, by Bonnie with Prine, that you will find quite marvelous.

John Prine gave us a lifetime of great music. No better time than now to stop and appreciate it.

How to Survive Quarantine

WHAT TO DO WHILE IN SELF-IMPOSED ISOLATION

You didn’t ask for it but you got it anyway.

You didn’t want it, but it showed up, unannounced and nasty.

You had a million things to do and now you can’t do any of them because….you’re in self-imposed isolation or government mandated quarantine.

So…fourteen (or more) days of time to think about it (and hope it’s all better by the time you surface) and how are you going to spend that time.

A few suggestions that will get you through this enforced period of time-out and perhaps, just maybe, change some things for the better in your life. Make the best of it is the right attitude to have; worrying about it or being depressed in the wrong way to think.

And you might as well face it, because it’s not going to be the same world you had last week, last month, last year, ever again. Those were the good ole days.

So be an optimist and make the most of your mid-life time-out. A few suggestions:

Binge Watch (Insert Favorite show Or Movie here)

This one of the easiest. Most everyone has access via cable, satellite, or the new fav—streaming and with that access you can catch up on all the shows and movies you wanted to catch up on and a few you had no idea were so great.

For example: old favs like “Friends”, M*A*S*H (years 1-4 are best because that’s when Larry Gelbart, the show creator and a great writer, was still tightly involved, but they’re all good), “Game of Thrones”, “The Crown”, “America”, “Homecoming”, “Fixer Upper”, “Love it or List it. If it’s a series, there’s a very good chance it’s playing on some channel on your tv or streaming over the internet. Catch up. You’ve got time.

Backup and Organize Your Computer.

No doubt you’re going to be working from home and on your computer/laptop a lot. Now’s the time to protect it and your work, by backing it up. You can use an outside backup service or just get a couple of fresh hard drives, and do it yourself. Prior to backing them up, go through all the files, drop the dupes and non-essentials, and, once organized back the computers up. If you’re on a Mac, use the Time Capsule program and since you’re going to be home for a while, remember to set it up so that things get backed up on a regular basis. This is something you’ve got to do anyway. Do it now. You’ve got time.

Get Into Master Class

The family gave me a subscription to Master Class, the online tutor/mentor lecture series that brings big time and accomplished stars and celebrities to your computer to give you lessons in everything from playing the guitar (Carlos Santana) to building a fashion brand (Dianne Von Furstenberg). The lectures are straightforward and informative, the presenters full of knowledge and insights. Some classes have workbooks. Am currently working my way through the Martin Scorsese lectures on film making and cinema. And balancing that off with Steve Martin on how to be funny. Next up—former Disney CEO Bob Iger on business strategy. There are over 25_courses on Master Class on everything from writing to cooking. Learn from the best. It’s addictive. You’ve got time.

Fix it.

The assumption is that you’re at home. You are isolated, not in lock up, so why not make a list of all the little things you’ve wanted to do around the house, apartment, farm, boat house, and get them done. Install the new outdoor motion activated light. Fix the loose boards on the dock. Tune up the jet skis. Use the chain saw to trim some trees. Clean out the left side of the garage on one day and then the right side on the next. Organize your books, music, software, personal papers. Throw out non-essentials. If you didn’t need them in the old world, you probably won’t need them in the new one. Update your will—we are in a pandemic. Correspond with people you owe some correspondence to. If it needs fixing, fix it. You’ve got time.

Learn Yoga

You do not have to be in a yoga studio to learn yoga. A small spot in front of the TV or computer will do just great. There are a zillion different yoga lessons available via YouTube or you can take out those yoga DVDs you bought with the good intention of using but never even put in the DVD player, so hop to it. The Downward Dog is waiting, along with the locust and the headstand. Put out the matt, turn on the program and some music, and get to it. Get your flexibility back and find a new kind of peace. You can do this. You probably need this. Have at it. You’ve got time.

Read A Lot

There are some great books out there and now you have time to find out precisely how many great books there are that you haven’t read. Work your way through Oprah’s Book Club list or through the Top 10 on the New York Times bestsellers (fiction or non-fiction). Fast reader, or slow, it makes no difference. Just pull books you’ve been “meaning to get to” or order up a new set of literary works (Amazon will deliver) and have at it. You’ll be smarter, enlightened, amazed, and acting like a top American CEO, most of whom read one book a week, in addition to running multi-billion dollar companies. Catch up on your reading. You’ve got time.

Build Something With Your Kids

You’re home (maybe working, maybe not). They’re also home (maybe working, maybe not). This is not just a good time to bond, but a good time for you to teach and for them learn. This is a different type of learning than the homework over the computer. So find a project everyone would enjoy, order it in, and start on it. Maybe it’s a Raspberry Pi computer, or a super-Lego skyscraper, or an overscale LGB garden train. Find it, organize it, understand it and build it with the kids. Use the break in routine for family time and renew/refresh your relationships. It’s a great lesson for everyone. You’ve got time.

Toss

You’re going to need more room while you’re self-isolated. So use this time to clean out the closets, drawers, boxes, cartons, baskets, etc. Make two piles: one to sell and one to toss. And one other pile: things to give away to friends. You do not need Marie Condo to do this….just a ruthless attitude to get rid of clutter and understand that it physically holds you back while you hold onto it…so dump it. Clean it up and get rid of it. Open up your life for the changes that are coming. You’ve got time.

Learn to Code

Living in the computer edge. Can you code? Even a line or two? Do you understand it? Even a line or two? If you’re not in the business of IT, the chances are you don’t write or read code, but now’s a good time to become familiar, and maybe even literate, with coding. How to start? My suggestion is to try Code Academy or Khan Academy 

Both have courses in various types of computer programming, both offer free courses (be a good sport and make a donation) and increase your literacy in the one new universal language–computer programming. You’ve got time.

Learn a New Language

As long as you’re going to be doing homework along with the kids, isn’t it time you perfected your stumble along Spanish, French, German or…with zero irony…Chinese. There are lots of great computer learning courses for languages. At Casa Euphoria we use the DuoLingo programs and podcasts from Apple (their “Coffee Break” courses for Spanish, French, etc. are terrific and so are the “My Daily Phrase” courses ). Good stuff and it’ll get you familiar with not just a new way to learn but the whole podcast universe, which is basically some of the best audio learning/entertainment you have ever heard in your life. Get bilingual via podcasts. You’ve got time.

Get Physical

Just because you’ve been instructed to stick around the house is no reason to fall out of shape. Most gyms and spas are going to be closed, so switch your exercise routine from gym/equipment-based workouts to simpler things like long walks or hikes, interval sprint training, swimming (if you have your own pool), rowing or biking. You can do simple body weight exercises (pushups, squats, etc.); there are plenty of instruction programs on how to do these exercises on the net. Remember—it has to be easily accessible and not something you do with someone else or in a group. And keep the Social Distancing rules in mind. But take your time (there’s no rush ), start a program, and get into better condition. No excuses. You’ve got time.

Give Back

These are difficult and unpredictable times, but if you’re on LinkedIn you have career standing and a network of new, old, and soon-to-be-indispensable friends. Share that good fortune with others not so lucky. As you work your way through the pandemic, do not forget to give and give back to the many charitable causes that will be asking for your assistance. It’s important to help others out. And if you see a charitable need that could use some attention, organize a charitable organization to provide help, guidance, and assistance. Give back to your community. You’ve got time.

Document

The new era we’re in now is going to be with us for a while. Changes are coming—some we’re ready for and some we’re not. And some we’re not expecting at all. History is happening everyday and one day you will look back at this time period in your life and hopefully see that you took a bad thing and turned it into a good one. So…document your trials and achievements, your highs and lows, your ups and downs as you go through the CV era. Get our that zillion dollar digital SLR and really learn to do it; keep a journal; sketch; make some recordings of what’s happening; be the family historian. Someone should do this and it might as well be you. Document your life as we move through this unprecedented period of American life. You’ve got time.

The Coronavirus Guide: 15 March 2020

Looks like we’re in for the Coronavirus testing/isolation/quarantine cycle for quite  a while—at least until the end of March. Maybe, and quite possibly, longer.

At this stage it’s the old Donald Rumsfeld quote that comes first to mind: “we don’t know what we don’t know”. That makes it quite difficult to get the full dimensions of what we’re facing, what the composition is of the disease, and the most effective way to fight it off, cure it, or at least fight it to a draw so we can reach, again, some semblance of normalcy and forward movement and financial stability.

To say America is frozen in time and place is an understatement: news shows are overflowing with Coronavirus (“CV”) stories and connected facts and data, some of it from reputable sources (scientists, medical experts, Ph.D.s ) and some from poorly informed, educated, reasoned, government leaders and their lackies. Bet on the scientists if you have to take sides because they know the drill and how to read the numbers and parse the data. This one–CV–was on the horizon years ago and as recently as two years ago, when the current administration started dismantling our disease Early Warning Systems at the NSC and hollowing out the CDC, the scientists warned it was coming and best to get prepared. Obama started the process of prep for a new world of nasty viruses and flu; the current administration has spent a lot of its time dismantling that work and their ineptness and poor reasoning abilities have brought us to this point. Enough.

This is a special post from DonaldPierce.Com (“DPC”)  designed to serve as a workbook/guide/clearing house of current and valid information on CV (also known as Covid-19). We will add new material to the sources, articles, and links listed here on a daily basis…so let’s get smarter about all of this stuff, starting now with an overview or two.

TIME OUT

The Coronavirus has hit a uniquely American seam of culture, enthusiasm, family life, athleticism, and sports. This past week, one after another, the iconic games of spring were cancelled or postponed. The initial thunderclap was the decision by the NBA to “postpone” their season. Postpone in this situation is most likely a rolling-ultimate-cancellation of the remainder of the season. Then one after another, big, tradtional, seasonal favorites started to drop. First, regional basketball tournaments, the ones leading to the biggest collegiate sports even of all, March Madness. Then, just days later, March Madness itself. The 12 Hours of Sebring, for the first time in it’s history, was moved to a date in the fall. The Masters, golf’s first major of the year and a tradition like no other, announced it would be postponed to a later date. The Master! If CVcould get The Masters, it could get any event. All NCAA spring sports tournaments were cancelled. The big European bicycle races that lead to the Tour de France were shut down. The Japanese are considering cancelling/moving/postponing the 2020 Summer Olympics. Even the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo was turned off, cancelled, ended, in the first week of a three week run. The rodeo is a key event for Houston–it brings everyone in the city together–but it also pays the heavy lifting at NRG stadium and is the reason the stadium was built (do the math-28 straightdays of rental vs. the 8 or 9 days a year the Texans use the stadium). 

Is this time out going to be good for America or is it going to be a wakeup call to the potential, invisible, deadly diseases waiting those who are carefless and reckless with personal hygene. Probably a bit of both, but whatever and however it shakes out,  the sports world will never be the same, in America or anyplace else in the world. After exposing the inadaquacies of those, theoretically, in government who know how to handle these types of things (and have come up mortally short), will we trust out leaders again in times of crisis, when we see them puff out their chests and fail–life and in person–on network television, more worried about their image and approval rating than righting the country and saving lives. Sooner or later it will all get sorted out, but what’s left after the storm is going to be causing issues for years. 

To set the record straight, here’s the most recent list from the New York Times of the major sporting events cancelled because of the CV.

The Six Minute Concert: Eric Clapton’s Crossroads GuitarFest, “Living on Tulsa Time”

Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitarfest (2007).

 The Hunt for New Music

There is good new–and revamped–music all around you, but you look for new sources to find it. Today, while the world is all gloomy and smoky because of CV anxiety, why not one song from Eric Clap (and friends) from his Crossroads Guitar festival in 2007. Shot in HD (1080 resolution) and with good sound, it features Clapton, Sheryl Crow, Vince Gill (seriously great guitarist), Albert Lee, Keb Mo and other guitar all stars. If this one doesn’t make you want to get your Fender out and start practicing, again, then there is, really not hope for your musical ambitions (might as well learn from the best). Turn it on, tune it in, run it through the flat screen and the high fi system and enjoy.

Music is an important part of the program at Perception Engineering and the Media Bunker. Stay tuned for our famous Summer Concert Series coming up. …it’ll be more important than ever as we will lose a lot of great outdoor summer music events because of the effects of Coronavirus. We will announce the summer lineup the first week of June.

How They Do It: Ford vs. Ferrari Driving Scene

One of the best movies of the winter was Ford vs. Ferrari, the story of the racing/corporate battle between the Ford Motor Company’s Henry Ford II and Ferrari’s Enzo Ferrari. In a movie with a lot of great action/driving scenes, one of the most memorable ones did not take place on the racetrack, but on an airport runway, and featured Matt Damon as Carroll Shelby (as Ford’s racing expert/car builder) and actor Tracy Letts who played Henry Ford II. Letts talked about shooting the very dramatic scene with the New York Times and his interview will both refresh your memory of the scene (if you’ve seen the movie) and give a new appreciation to your understanding of the difficulty of shooting a film. Click here to read Letts’ interview. And, to appreciate the chaotic nature of riding in race cars, here’s the scene as it played out on the screen.  And hangon.

Last Call for New Orlean’s Black Bars

 

The Latest Word:

 

 Cruising through this week’s New York Times–one of the world’s great newspapers, no matter your political persuasion–came across a brilliant photo/historical essay written and photographed by L. Kasimu Harris that covered the background, culture, past, and somewhat shaky future of the black bars of New Orleans, i.e. the juke joints and straight-up bars that served the social, musical, and community needs of New Orleans. The piece was brilliant, really,  and you could feel the grit of the bars from the prose and the photos and it was just very, very well done. Now, donaldpierce.com (Everything.All the Time) doesn’t have the circulation of the New York Times but we know a good piece when we see it and when see one we like to share it with like-minded souls and even those souls who aren’t like-minded but maybe, just maybe, we could drag across the tracks so they could look at things a little differently, shuffle to a better beat, get in sync with a few parts of life they might enjoy if….they’d just take the plunge. So here ’tis. Click the link and go back and forward in time simultaneously to a serious element of culture from a city that’s a got a bunch of them. Enjoy.  And thanks to L. Kasimu Harris for bringing this to light.

The Not So Great Debate

The Latest Word:

 So, they went at it again, the Democratic Candidates, in another poorly planned presidential debate. It was the usual suspects (Biden, Bernie, Warren, Klobuchar, Mayor Pete) plus Michael Bloomberg, who joined the crew for this debate..his first  one (and it showed).  

Missing–but eligible–was former hedge fund manager Tom Steyer. Steyer and Bloomberg are both billionaires (a good thing, especially when running for office) but Bloomberg is the biggest money of anyone in the 2020 race and that includes Trump, who may (or may not) have as much as Steyer, but who can tell, because Trump intentionally keeps his finances opaque, that way he can tell anyone anything about how much he’s worth and no one can prove otherwise. For those keeping records, he does the same things with his high school and college grades (going so far as to hide his military school records so that no one can dispute him).  Trump was not a direct entry into Wharton; he went in as a junior transfer from Fordham, which is ranked #no 74 in acceptance difficulty; Wharton is ranked #9 or #12 if you want to rank Penn instead of the college of Wharton. Draw your own conclusions about Trump’s native academic skill. But note: there is not a darn thing wrong with transferring to a very prestigious university from an OK university and graduating from it; it’s not where you start out, but where you finish that counts. But please discount all of Trump’s bleating about his top grades at Wharton. There aren’t any: he’s not listed on any Dean’s List or other academic recognition program. Those honors go to the top 15%. Trump didn’t make the cut. Period. He went to Wharton and he graduated, a semi-normal Joe College with a rich real estate dad.  He does not have an advanced degree. Bloomberg went to Johns Hopkins (undergrad) and Harvard (MBA). Steyer went to Yale and Stanford (MBA); Klobuchar to Yale and UChicago (Law); Mayor Pete Went to Harvard(Undergrad) and Oxford (Rhodes Scholar, MA); Elizabeth Warren went to University of Houston and Rutgers (Law); Bernie Sanders to University of Chicago; Joe Biden t0 Delaware and Syracuse (Law). But, we digress…..

The Demo Debate was a basic disaster for Bloomberg and not so good for anyone else. From our perspective, the whole process needs a good review and maybe just needs to be dumped, but it was bad from the beginning. Let’s start with the basics:

Network: NBC

Panelists/Journalists: Lester Holt (NBC), Hallie Jackson(MSNBC), Chuck Todd (NBC/MSNBC), Vanessa Hauc (Telemundo), Jon Ralston (Nevada Independent)

Location: Paris Theater, Las Vegas, Nevada (in advance of the Nevada caucus, which is this weekend)

From a critical and non-biased viewpoint, the Dems just blew themselves up in their own debate. Let’s start with the obvious culprits, because they’re involved in this process and should not be.

1. Who is Tom Perez and Why Does He Think He’s At a Gospel Meeting

Tom Perez is the current head of the Democratic Party. Thus far, he shows all of the administrative sharpness of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who he succeeded. Wasserman Schultz will best be remembered for managing the previous Democratic primary process so that her Amigo Hilary Clinton could finally get the Democratic  Nomination (over Bernie Sanders…hmmm). Everyone saw how that worked out. Perez is on the same track. He started the primary year by green lighting a never-tested vote counting software app to be used in Iowa, the first contest of the year. It was a disaster, and weeks later some still don’t know who won the primary. Perez started the televised Vegas show with a call to organize for the attending democrats but it was not the type of thing that should have been telecast and he is not an inspiring speaker. For his massive failure in overseeing Iowa and his failure to date in creating a unified strategy and pushing the persuasion power of a debate, Perez needs to go. Sorry–this is a brutal game with a country’s future on the line and if I was a Democrat, I wouldn’t feel comfortable following Perez’s leadership. He doesn’t have it.  Please leave. 

2, The Moderators Lacked Gravitas. 

The panelists, there to inquire, inspire, probe, and keep the debate moving did not do a great job of controlling the debate participants. It was an unsupervised 5th grade classroom. No one got the right amount of time (either too much or too little…where are the PA’s keeping track of this stuff) and all too often the contestants were talking on top of one another, shouting, interrupting, and digressing. They needed more control from the moderators, but didn’t get it. This is not Holt’s speciality and it showed; Chuck Todd is polite but soft and not as tough as the late Tim Russert–Chris Mathews, who can be brutal on cross examination would have been a much better choice; Hallie Jackson is good and road- tested tough but there’s only one of her. Jon Ralston was solid but he didn’t insert himself quite enough; the Telemundo rep,  Vanessa Huac,  could have brought some insight into Mexican/American relations, economics, trade policies and general over-all can-we-get-along questions, but instead wasted her time and intellect on asking simplistic questions like “who’s the President of Mexico”…the correct answer is, “which week?”, but that didn’t come out and the scene devolved into a discussion of whether or not that’s actually a good question for a debate like this (no, it is not)…it smacked of “gotcha”, which is not what you want to play with millions of futures on the line. 

3. Get the New Guy

The entire theme of the night was “get Mike”. From the opening shot to the end, the other six debaters piled on Mike Bloomberg, bringing out every conceivable negative event from his past and trying–in ways both odd and sad–to run him down and make him seem less desirable as a potential Democratic candidate for the Presidency. The negativity was so sharp and focused on Bloomberg at some times, I was waiting for the makeup crew to run out on stage and take his makeup off. While I know that they were mad at him for a)spending a lot of money on commercials b)being a billionaire  c) entering the race “late” and d)organizing in all states faster, the pile-on strategy made for very good popular television but very poor political communications. The Democrats are going to need Bloomberg. He’s accomplished, he’s wealthy, he’s well educated. Give him some room..he may very well be the ultimate nominee and even if he’s not, they need him. Why destroy your own team members when you have a very formidable opponent to deal with?

4. Enough of the “got cha” debate points. 

Far too often, the debaters engaged in “got cha” style questioning of one another, i.e. “will you release your medical records?”, “have you made your tax returns public?”, “why isn’t the culinary union backing you?” etc. etc. etc. This may give the questioner some momentary lift (and some temporary audience support) when the recipient of the “got cha” inquiry gets tagged,  but these intensely and snarky lines of questioning don’t have much to do with policy positions or tax strategies or how to defeat Trump. The single objective of each person on the stage should be  to defeat the current occupant of the White House, not ask self-serving questions.  By overdoing the snarky stuff and underplaying the big points, debaters are giving Trump’s campaign all the key oppo they need to defeat Democrats–no research necessary. Just pull a transcript, see who said what, find the video clip, and your oppo file is filled up with the stuff that the candidates say about each other…not about Trump. “Got-cha” is small potatoes guys. Cut it out. Go for big points, with some detail (but not so much it blunts the message). Talk about policy. Benefits to voters. Change. A new vision for America. Economic plans (anyone think to discuss the huge trillion dollar debts being run up now by the current administration, one that loves debt and doesn’t believe in paying it back?). No one even mentioned gun control in the city that suffered the largest gun violence in American history.  Will someone pay attention to the big stuff?  Get real. 

5. Don’t Read Too Much Into Anyone’s Performance…Including Mike Bloomberg’s. 

Afterwards, the inevitable rush to the “spin room” as pundits gathered to say what they thought people saw and heard from the candidates:  “Warren got her game back”; “Biden had his best debate yet”; “Bernie did not get derailed”; “Bloomberg’s terrible..he wasn’t prepared” (Trump is not a great debater either but he won the Presidency). Hold on, folks. Debate comprehension is an imprecise skill and two weeks from last Tuesday night’s debate, few people will even be able to tell you who was on the stage and what they stood for. It’s a very long process and message attrition is a campaign strategy.

We know a few things coming out of the Las Vegas debates: Bernie still has his energy and emotional commitment to his campaign; Elizabeth Warren (and Mayor Pete) can debate with the best of them; Biden is still capable of bringing it (although it’s a little rougher now); Amy Klobuchar has run out of accomplishments to boost her as a candidate and Mike Bloomberg–bloodied but not bowed–is not going anywhere. You don’t create a sixty billion dollar fortune in data/communications by refusing to get up after you’re knocked down. My bet is that Bloomberg is a very quick learner and if he does another debate ( and I would advise against it..the TV ads are doing just fine), he’s going to be killer at it. Give the man credit for accomplishment; he’ll figure it out. 

6. The Entire Debate Format is Terrible

The TV coverage as very good and the debate drew a big audience. Good for the network, bad for the candidates. But the substance of the debate had a pro wrestling attitude lurking over it.  The candidates went far too much into unimportant details and not enough into substantive issues: why one one program is better than another; their visions for America; what kind of damage has been done to the American system of government and can it (or should it) be restored. I don’t care about Bernie’s Medical Records; I care about his health if he  gets elected, but only then. And I don’t care about Mike’s NDA’s. That’s been settled, signed and delivered. No one cared enough about Trump’s NDA’s to keep him out of office–who’s running on last year’s standard? Are the Democrats judging themselves on standards they won’t apply to Trump? Let it go, folks. And it’s not illegal…..Bloomberg asked the one question of the night that stopped everyone on stage in their tracks: “Have you ever started a business?” The implication being “If not, what makes you think you can run something as complex as the USA?”

This morning, Warren tossed another stink bomb into the campaign by bringing up Bloomberg’s NDAs again (“I used to teach contract law”) and saying she had a piece of paper that would get signees out of their agreements. Stop it. That is not the issue here, she should stop the self-promotion. Just a diversion from the other things we’re facing–deficits, Russian meddling (again), Afghanistan, coronavirus, presidential pardons going to presidential cronies, no term limits in Congress, medical care. Liz would rather get a big rush out of a tabloid issue than advance the cause of defeating Trump at the ballot box. He’s got an easy path–just let the Democrats wipe themselves out and say nothing. 

The debate format is killing the candidates’ chances to get their points across. It’s not very dignified and is certainly not very informative. All the talking over one another, abstract deliveries of information, and spur-of-the-moment thoughts muddle all messages. 

 I propose a different, more intelligent approach. Segments that deal with specific issues and the candidates’ reasoned plans to solve them. Start with a very small group of credentialed experts and academics in the different electoral issues that affect all of us: Foreign relations, military, immigration, medical economics, education, labor, security. These experts deliver a very brief, fact based overview of the current situation, i.e. a SWOT analysis, to the candidates. Then, one by one, the candidates discuss their approach to each issue. Viewers would get an understanding of the background on each issue and the candidates approach to solving each one. Not a complete education to be sure, but at least one that is intelligent and designed to convey the programs of the candidates to the voters.

The current American government operational model is chaotic, uninformed, and not working to a higher purpose. It has to change for America to grow to potential in all areas, not just economics.

A good place to start would be by re-thinking the American presidential debate format. We can–and must–do better than a verbal wrestling match that reveals little and succeeds only in embarrassing the participants. 

 

 

 

 

The New Year comes in; the old one goes out and you get a re-set.
Whether or not you are the type that likes to stay up until midnight partying and socializing or prefer to bring in the New Year more privately, the time-space effect is going to be the same: you will say goodbye to 2019(really, not a terrific year) and hello to 2020 in just a matter of hours and you will join billions on the planet in doing so.
The New Year’s celebration (New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day)is best understood as a two day event, not a single day one, although a bit of partying can easily make them run together and seem like one never-ending holiday. I’ve had those moments myself, although not as much lately as in the past.
New Year’s Eve is the big celebratory party day, starting, depending upon your schedule, at about 4PM and continuing past (or well past) midnight. It is time for partying, eating, dancing, loud music, and new found enthusiasm for kissing people you do not know particularly well as well as kissing people you know extremely well.
“You must remember this, a kiss is a just a kiss, the fundamental things apply as time goes by”, was how Dooley Wilson summed it up in “Casablanca” and you’ll do well to take his advice. 

New Year’s Eve is the last day of the old year. Congratulations: You made it. You have the right to get silly and celebrate. (Safety note: just don’t drive if you drink; crash in place and tell everyone you didn’t want to miss anything when you wake up the next day).
New Year’s Day itself –the daylight portion—is of course, the first day of the New Year and is for recovery, family, football and begging for forgiveness if your enthusiasm for kissing people you do not know particularly well got out of hand, as it often does on such a night. If that turns out to be the case—well, best of luck to you. You may find out the hard way that the old saying that it’s “better to ask for forgiveness than to seek permission” does not apply to random groping and hot twerking in a tuxedo. Just hope that no one from the press or a particularly well-circulated internet site was snapping photos in hopes of making one reputation (theirs) while crushing another one (yours).
In addition to post-celebration recovery and football, and a full day of grazing at the New Year’s Day buffet table, New Year’s Day is also famous for New Year’s Resolutions. As a matter of fact, that (and begging for forgiveness) might be the very best option for New Year’s Day.
Although one can make a resolution at any time of the year, New Year’s Day is always the very best time to do so. Making them in June or July seems a bit pointless and lonesome.
You’re expected to re-start and re-set on New Year’s Day. This is the day of forgiveness for habits past(see above). Have at it. You’ll be in good company. Literally millions of resolutions will be made by sundown of New Year’s Day (and no doubt another million broken by dawn of the next day) but it’s a tradition and a form of personal positivism that should be encouraged. New Year’s resolutions speak to your best intentions, so indulge and encourage yourself. If you want to re-set some part of your life, career, health program, or diet New Year’s is the very best day to do it. The timing is in your favor.
Take society up on the open book for reconciliation and change it’s given you and understand the dynamics.
New Year’s Eve is the end; New Year’s Day is the beginning.
So do with yourself what you so often have done to your computer. Hit the re-set button. Enjoy shutting down the old days, the old ways, the memories past (both good and bad), flash  your personal RAM and relish the re-start, the new energy, the revised perspective, the bigger dreams. Simultaneously enjoy the freedom of letting go and the exhilaration of unbounded possibilities. Dream a little.
One day is for reflection; the other for projection. One set of stories and days and events are now complete; another set of adventures and trials and days and nights are to come.
More than any other holiday, New Year’s celebrates the possible, the unknown, the future, the passage of time and the new journey.
Once a year, mankind is all on the same page. And while the moment of synchronicity will disappear in just hours, we are all united by the hope (and promise) of a new year, a new start, a new beginning. New Year’s Day 2020 remains what all New Year’s Days have been through time: one more chance to really, really get it right.
It’s the New Year. Celebrate tonight. Recalibrate tomorrow.
Re-Set.

2019: The Year in Lists

 No matter which way you look at it–the good, the bad, or the ugly–2019 was one of the most wildest, least predictable, over/under-hyped, culturally significant/insignificant years on record. The bad guys won more than their share of major events and the good guys somehow managed to stay in the game.  It was a year of outrageous personalities, incredible statements, ethics-bending, line-crossing, tweet-storming weirdness. Here’s hoping we don’t have a repeat of all that worldwide nonsense in 2020, but who knows.

But…and we’ve said this before, in this same space ….you never really know a year until you see it in a series of lists. And so, here again, is one of our favorite posts of all time, updated to fit the mood and the times: The Year In Lists. You shall know us by what we track and recognize–sobering to be sure. And check back frequently, the list is updated continuously.
