Zion 100 Race Report 2019

Dear Zion 100, Hi. It's me, Cory. I just wanted to write you a little thank you note after this year's race. You're my friend, so I want to be honest with you. I wasn't sure I wanted to hang out with you this year. Because of these pesky infusions I've been doing every week, I haven't been able to run as much as I used to. I wasn't sure how my legs would hold up. But I love you. You are beautiful. And I love sleeping in my own bed the night before a race, with the start line only a few minutes...

8 Ways The Grateful Dead Have Become An American Brand

While their music may not be to everyone's taste, there's no denying that the The Grateful Dead have been incredibly successful, not only in their musical career, but also in leveraging their success into an iconic American brand. _________________________ Guest post by Fred Jacobs of Jacobs Media Strategies Truth be told, I was never much of a Grateful Dead fan.  My tastes leaned more British Invasion – the Beatles, Stones, Zeppelin, Kinks, and the Who.  And my idea of great bands ...

European telcos want the right to perform "deep packet inspection" on our data

[Austria's Epicentre Works is an incredibly effective European digital rights group, most famous for getting the EU's Data Retention Directive struck down; now, they're raising the alarm about a move to relax the EU's Net Neutrality rules to allow ISPs to conduct fine-grained surveillance and discrimination against services that aren't in bed with ISPs. I'm happy to provide Epicenter Works's Thomas Lohninger a space to highlight the group's efforts -Cory] Today 45 NGOs, Academics and Companies...

Comment on austrian torn, fluffy pancake by Cory

I learned to make this from my mother (born in Germany). After the batter has set, she would fold/stir in the pan, sort of like making scrambled eggs, rather than flipping like a pancake. Much easier, just as delicious. Yes to raisins (though not rum-soaked), yes to powdered sugar. Still a special treat!

Booker Goes Bonkers with Plan to Regulate 2A as Privilege

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) has just launched a plan to combat violent crime that essentially treats the right to keep and bear arms like a regulated privilege. (Screen snip, YouTube, CNN) U.S.A. –-( Democrat presidential hopeful Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey has released a plan to combat so-called “gun violence” by essentially relegating the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms to the level of a privilege that is strictly regulated by the government, including licensing ev...

SO LATE SO SOON: fun, genre-celebrating SF for young readers (of all ages!)

[Harry Tynan posts on our forums as Moose Malloy. Earlier this week, he messaged me about his fun, self-published kid's book, written as a series of bedtime stories for his kid (a tradition I'm very fond of -- it's the origin story of The Borribles!). The book is so much fun that I invited him to write a short introduction and choose a excerpt for your edification. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! -Cory] The great Umberto Eco once wrote, in a about Casablanca, that "Two clichés make us la...

The National Security Sublime: On the Aesthetics of Government Secrecy

[Matt Polotsky's new book, The National Security Sublime, is a tour through the look-and-feel of mass surveillance, as practiced by the most unlikely of aesthetes: big data authoritarian snoops and the grifter military contractors who wax fat on them. This is a subject dear to my heart. -Cory] The US National Security Agency is big, really big. But it’s unlikely that most people outside the government can (or would even try to) quantify its size or powers with any specificity. The agency is ju...

Whoa there Democrats – Joe Biden isn't as electable as you think

The idea that the presidential candidate has a lock on white rust-belt voters is wrong in so many ways Joe Biden. ‘The assumption that white rust-belt voters can only be won over by white candidates does not stack up to recent history.’ Photograph: Jonathan Ernst/Reuters Joe Biden has many strengths as a presidential candidate: experience, policy smarts, respect for the rule of law, an ability to do something more than watch cable news. Even a Sleepy Joe is a significant upgrade on a Dumbass ...

Socialism may define the Democratic Party today, but never America

Signs are good already that President Trump will secure a re-election victory in 2020. The Democrats basically had a two-part strategy heading into the 2020 campaign cycle: talk about how much they despise Donald Trump, and present their platform as the opposite of everything they despise about Donald Trump. Instead, they’re talking about how much the American people despise socialism, and pretending that their platform doesn’t embody everything that voters despise about socialism. Senator Cory ...

Larry Bunner is today's hero

He was followed by Mick Howard and Cory Barnwell. shows me, Cory and Mick. I dropped out early along with Greg Dinauer. Cory made it well past Williston on his U2- 145. Mick's track log doesn't show him past the turnpoint at Dunellon, but we saw him heading for Gainesville (not a good idea) earlier on Live360. Larry didn't check in to the Wilotree Park Cross Country, but it looks like he could have made it to the new goal at the small private airfield so...

Friday's flights 234 kilometers to the north I launched first at 11:02 AM (soon to be 12:02 PM). I was pulled up to 2,600' to the nearest cu', about 4 km south southwest of Wilotree. I climbed at an average rate of 150 fpm to 4,200' which was the predicted 11 AM cloudbase. I was drifting down wind at 7 mph, 1 mph less than the predicted value.

Saturday flights

Apparently pilots got cut off by the cirrus clouds that you see in the Satellite photos in the previous article. These weren't forecasted. Again a whole bunch of pilots went cross country. John Simon, Misael Rosalez, Rob Clarkson, Mick Howard, Cory Barnwell, and maybe others. I launched first again, as no one else was ready. A bit later this time at 11:17 given the forecast for a lower cloudbase.  The cu's had started popping at 9:30 AM and the sky was full of them. Again, like the day befor...

Democrats 2020: Could Cory Booker, the devout 'street fighter', succeed in taking down Donald Trump?

As Donald Trump delivered his first State of the Union address to a divided Congress in January last year, Cory Booker, the junior US senator from New Jersey, sat in the front row. Jaw clenched, eyes wide and unblinking, he stared directly at the president with undisguised venom. He never looked away once. In fact, Mr Booker looked very much like he wanted to punch Mr Trump. Two weeks earlier Mr  Booker had displayed the same wild-eyed fervour as he excoriated Kirstjen Nielsen, Mr Trump's ho...
