Baltimore Sun: We all still have a dream 50-years after Dr. King's speech

We all still have a dream 50-years after Dr. King's speech [Eagle Archives]

By Kevin Dayhoff, kevindayhoff@gmail.com

1:38 p.m. EDT, August 27, 2013


Members of the Carroll County chapter of the NAACP joined tens of thousands Saturday at the National Mall - at the Reflecting Pool and the Lincoln Memorial - in Washington to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the August 28, 1963 March on Washington.

It was at that time in the early 1960s that the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. (January 15, 1929-April 4, 1968) made "I have a dream" the clarion-call of the civil rights movement at a political rally called the “March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.”

History continues to reflect upon the importance of the march on Washington in 1963. One thing remains certain, it was a pivotal moment in American history that has contributed greatly to who we are as a nation today.

John Lewis, Julian Bond, Martin Luther King III, Eric Holder, Cory Booker, Nancy Pelosi, Myrlie Evers Williams, Al Sharpton, Steny Hoyer, Ed Schultz, Denise King, Joseph Lowery, CT Vivan, representatives of the Human Rights Campaign, the National Council of LaRaza, the AFT, the NEA and many, many more.

Caroline’s hands – our dried mangoes.

 Caroline’s hands – our dried mangoes.

August 21, 2013
  

Long road trips require ample portions of dried mangoes in order to properly maintain the mind, body, spirit and soul to be appropriately prepared for the journey.

Pictured here are the all-important hands that handled the dried mangoes on our recent trip to the 2013 Evangelical Lutheran Church in America Churchwide Assembly in Pittsburg during the week of Aug. 12-17 in Pittsburgh.



This picture was taken on our way up the road to Pittsburgh on August 10, 2013. It captures a moment in which the dried mangoes are in Caroline’s hands as she waxes poetically upon the importance and spirituality of this food of the Gods…

The Assembly took “action on some 80 ‘memorials’ or requests from synods asking for Churchwide Assembly action on significant issues,” according to a thoughtful and comprehensive article written about the assembly by Lutheran magazine writer, Elizabeth Hunter, “Paperless in Pittsburgh.” The article by Ms. Hunter appeared in the August edition of the magazine.

Ms. Hunter noted that voting members faced “Some big decisions … amid daily worship, prayer and Bible studies under the theme "Always Being Made New," based on 2 Corinthians 5:17.”

At the 2013 Lutheran Churchwide Assembly, 952 voting members from the ELCA's 65 synods and 9,638 congregations elected a new presiding bishop and secretary, and deliberated and adopted various budgets, financial campaigns, social statements.

Last week, Caroline Babylon, Evelyn Babylon, Beth Clementson and I volunteered at the 2013 Churchwide Assembly that was hosted by the Southwestern Pennsylvania Synod.

It was the last biennial gathering of the ELCA's highest legislative authority before the assembly transitions to a triennial cycle, according to Ms. Hunter.

“Always being made New” was the theme of The Evangelical Lutheran Church in American 2013 Churchwide Assembly that took place August 12-17, 2013 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Pittsburgh, PA.

The worst deals in tech: Are you being fleeced by these 7 overpriced products? | TechHive

The worst deals in tech: Are you being fleeced by these 7 overpriced products? | TechHive

August 19, 2013 by 

http://www.techhive.com/article/2046144/the-worst-deals-in-tech-are-you-being-fleeced-by-these-7-overpriced-products-.html#tk.nl_advis

The coolest running shoes at the Nike store this year are the Nike Air Max+ 2013. They retail for $180, but when you break down the costs for the materials and the manufacturing and labor at the Chinese factory where the shoes are made, you’re looking at a product that costs less than $10 a pop. The remaining $170 covers marketing (to make you believe the shoes are worth the premium price) and a handsome profit for Nike. The company reports revenues of about $25 billion a year.
It works the same way for many products in the tech world. As gadget enthusiasts, we accept the idea that products are worth what we’re willing to pay for them, and not what they cost in terms of product development, manufacturing, and materials. Nonetheless, it’s time to name names. Here are some of most egregiously high profit margins in the world of consumer tech.

"Text Messages Average cost: $0.20 per text Average cost to provide: virtually nothing

The cost of text messages often gets a bad rap, and for good reason. Our tiny missives—160 bytes in size, at most—typically cost us 20 cents each to send and receive (assuming you don’t have a text messaging plan or haven’t gone over your limit). They cost essentially nothing to deliver, however, making the markup for an SMS message essentially infinite." .... http://www.techhive.com/article/2046144/the-worst-deals-in-tech-are-you-being-fleeced-by-these-7-overpriced-products-.html#tk.nl_advis

Famed crime novelist Elmore Leonard dies

Famed crime novelist Elmore Leonard dies

By Dennis McLellan August 20, 2013
Elmore Leonard, whose character- and dialogue-driven urban tales of con men, hustlers and killers such as "Glitz," "Get Shorty" and "Out of Sight" earned him a reputation as one of America's greatest crime novelists and one of Hollywood's favorite storytellers, died Tuesday. He was 87…. http://www.herald-mail.com/breakingnews/la-me-elmore-leonard-20130821%2C0%2C1238346.story

[….]

Leonard was newly married when he launched his literary career in 1951, moonlighting as a writer of western short stories for the then-thriving pulp magazine market.

His first western novel, "The Bounty Hunters," was published in 1953. Four more of his western novels were published over the next eight years, while two of his short stories were being turned into movies — "The Tall T," starring Randolph Scott; and "3:10 to Yuma," starring Glenn Ford (and remade in 2007 with Russell Crowe).

After the market for westerns dried up in the 1960s, Leonard switched to writing contemporary crime novels, the literary genre that made him a worldwide critical favorite and earned him fans ranging from Nobel laureate Saul Bellow to President George W. Bush to director Quentin Tarantino.

Beginning with "The Big Bounce" in 1969, Leonard turned out dozens of crime novels, including "Mr. Majestyk," "Swag," "Gold Coast," "Split Images" and "Stick." His 1983 novel "La Brava" earned him an Edgar Allan Poe Award from the Mystery Writers of America…. http://www.herald-mail.com/breakingnews/la-me-elmore-leonard-20130821%2C0%2C1238346.story
