Open thread for night owls: Efforts by cities & states can't meet U.S. Paris climate commitments

Alex Lenferna at Common Dreams writes—No, the US Is Not Upholding Its Paris Climate Agreement Commitments: At the end of the Global Climate Action Summit, California Governor Jerry Brown and Michael Bloomberg pronounced that despite Trump’s intransigence the U.S. is still “upholding its commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement”. They were celebrating the fact that sub-national commitments put “the country within striking distance of the 26% reduction in greenhouse gases, by 2025, that the United States promised to hit in Paris”. Unfortunately, though, despite some encouraging climate action at the sub-national level, the U.S. is not “upholding its commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement”, as it is failing to address the issue of international climate finance and is far from meetings its fair share of emissions reductions. Together these failures mean that the United States cannot really be said to be upholding the agreement, but sub-national actors like DC can change that. Firstly, the Paris agreement was not just about countries reducing their domestic emissions. Centrally, it was also about rich, developed, climate polluting countries providing funding to help developing countries adapt to and mitigate climate change. For the United States, as the richest country on earth and the largest historical climate polluter, this political and moral responsibility is particularly pronounced. When Trump pulled out of the Paris climate agreement, the administration also abandoned the US’s pledge to deliver an additional $2 billion to the Green Climate Fund (GCF) — a key funding channel serving the Paris Climate Agreement which helps developing countries adapt to climate change and pursue low-carbon and climate resilient development. Despite America having previously promised action on this front, it has been all but ignored by the U.S. sub-national climate movement. To make matters worse, even the U.S. pledge under the Paris Climate Agreement to reduce its emissions 26-28% by 2025 is far from its fair share of emissions reductions. [...] TOP COMMENTS • HIGH IMPACT STORIES QUOTATION «Part of what my discomfort was, in the beginning, is that I wanted something that didn't exist. I wanted something that was so singular, a label that was so singular for me. I was so special—I was so different from everybody else I was meeting. And I wanted a different label. And I had to say, 'Charles snap out of that. What are you talking about?' All identity labels are umbrella terms to some degree, but this term bisexual is not only serviceable but it is sufficient. And yes, it brings together a bunch of people who are maybe shades different from one another. And maybe that’s the beauty of labels: that they force you to be with other people and see the difference.»                ~~Charles M.

The following stories are examples of this week's Election Roundup of 48 down ticket stories covering Sunday 10/14 through Saturday 10/20. (Voting) Early Voting Is Happening, And It's Big! UPDATE 3 Hr. Wait Today In Cobb County Georgia by pollwatcher Michael McDonald at the University of Florida does a wonderful job of collecting early voting stats and posting them over at ElectProject.  He’s got some tweets about the very early voting and it’s on a pace to be BIGGER than the 2016 presidential year!  Yes, it’s early but it’s a great start.  I’m not sure there’s ever been a midterm election with a bigger turnout than a presidential year. xThe levels of engagement are just bonkers in some some states. If this keeps up, we'll have turnout higher than the 2016 presidential election. That can't happen, can it? You'd think this has to level off at some point, but there are no signs yet— Michael McDonald (@ElectProject) October 17, 2018 (Media) The Best of Democratic Campaign Ads by AKALib Here is a sample of some of the best campaign ads run by Democratic candidates around the country. As is usually the case, Democratic campaign ads tend to be positive, uplifting, creative and make liberal use of humor, while Republican campaign ads tend to be dark, deceitful, and focus on fear and identity politics (so we won’t present any of them). (16 great ads) (MD-Gov) The governor's mansion is theirs for the taking, if Maryland's Democrats want it by dwats Ben Jealous, Maryland’s Democratic nominee for governor, is running an unconventional campaign in several ways. One of the most notable of these is that he is running as an underdog, which no Democrat has done in a statewide race in 38 years. Since Charles Mathias, a moderate Republican, in an era when those actually existed, won reelection to his US Senate seat in 1980, Democrats have won all but two statewide races since (plus Mondale ‘84 and Dukakis ‘88 also lost here).

Loved ones of women killed by Border Patrol supervisor 'still grappling with question: Why?'

Campaign Action The friends and family of Guiselda Alicia Hernandez, Claudine Ann Luera, Janelle Ortiz, and Melissa Ramirez—the four women murdered by a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) employee in Texas last month—continue to grieve and ask questions about why their loved ones are gone. USA Today’s day-by-day look at Juan David Ortiz’s murder spree doesn’t provide these families with much more information as the investigation into the killings continues, but it does back up previous reports that Ortiz—a decade-long veteran of CBP—used his position to monitor the investigation into him even as he carried out his violence.  “Border Patrol agents often monitor local murder investigations to help clamp down on human trafficking rings and leads are shared freely and frequently between the agencies.” Webb County Sheriff Chief Federico Garza said Ortiz “was ahead of the curve with the information he was receiving.” This should merit an investigation of Border Patrol, and leading House Democrats have called on CBP commissioner Kevin McAleenan to look into whether Ortiz “was acting in his capacity as a Border Patrol agent at any time during the alleged crimes.” But, it’s unclear whether legislators have received any answers at all. In the meantime, USA Today continues, “friends and families of the victims are all still grappling with a central, unanswered question: Why?”  “It’s heart-breaking,” friend Stephany Gonzalez tells USA Today. “We knew all four of the victims. We sit down and talk and we cry and we laugh. We remember all the stuff they used to do.”

A new study suggests voters aren't buying anti-Muslim campaign rhetoric—and it might even backfire

Anti-Muslim rhetoric seems omnipresent in the conservative far right, but even more worrying is how consistently some of that hate rhetoric seems to be seeping into actual political campaigns. This is especially true since the arrival of open bigot Donald Trump, who has made both crackpot conspiracy theories and virulent prejudice cornerstones of his own political speech and, in doing so, has encouraged other Republican candidates to embrace the same. None of this is debatable, but the civil rights group Muslim Advocates wanted to measure what has been going on more precisely: The number of candidates who have used anti-Muslim arguments in their campaign speeches and ads, this election season, and whether or not such speech has proven effective. The resulting report paints a complicated picture. On one hand, eighty such campaigns were identified, including big-name Republicans like Rep. Dave Brat and Rep. Duncan Hunter. But of the campaigns that engaged in anti-Muslim rhetoric this campaign season, all but a bare handful already lost their primaries or are expected to lose in November. This suggests open anti-Muslim sentiment is still used primarily by extremist candidates who have little hope of winning and whose campaigns are premised on rallying a hidden majority of bigots who, in most races, never appear. There are always exceptions: Tennessee's Mark Green has been odiously anti-Muslim for a long time and is still expected to win a seat in Congress, which may or may not be directly related to Tennessee being a particular haven for anti-Muslim conspiracy crackpots freaking out about their local mosques and/or something-something-sharia. And it needs especially to be noted that the uptick in hate rhetoric against Muslims pairs with an uptick in violence against American Muslims, so this speech isn't without consequences even if most of the candidates end up losing. Hearing anti-Muslim rhetoric in political speeches signals to like-minded listeners that their own private bigotries are justifiable and «allowed.» But there's some good news, too. An included poll of voter sentiments indicates that anti-Muslim rhetoric in campaign ads is extremely likely to backfire. Only 8 percent, however, said they would be more likely to vote for a candidate who speaks negatively about Muslims. Fifty-eight percent said they would be more likely to vote against that candidate, though it made no difference to 17 percent. GET OUT THE VOTE for Democrats.

California is dog whistle central for fearmongering Republicans

California is doing a lot of work for Republican politicians in several states, who are using the largest state in the nation as some kind of threat to voters. As Nevada attorney general and gubernatorial nominee Adam Laxalt put it, “Are we going to keep Nevada the Nevada we all love, this independent Western state, or are we going to turn into California?” Or “California is absolutely not the model for Florida,” according to that state’s Republican gubernatorial nominee, Ron DeSantis. “It would be a historic mistake to go down the road of being a high-tax, high-spending state.”  California is the fifth-largest economy in the world. It has a higher median household income than Colorado, Florida, Nevada, or Texas. It has a higher high school graduation rate than Nevada, Florida, or Colorado—among states with Republican politicians obsessed with California, only Texas is higher on that measure. Of those states, only Colorado has a higher per capita income or a lower homicide rate—Nevada, Florida, and Texas all have lower incomes and higher homicide rates. And it’s worth noting that while the Republican Governors Association has tried out California-themed attacks on Democratic gubernatorial nominee Jared Polis: David Flaherty, a Republican pollster in Colorado, said he believed that advertisement had fallen flat. “Are Californians moving here and changing our state, which is arguably what happened in Nevada?” Mr. Flaherty asked. “I don’t feel that is a prevailing thought in voters’ minds. We are not there yet.” Attacks on California may dwell on taxes, but there’s something else at play: scary brown people and LGBTQ people (the Colorado attacks focus on taxes but it’s perhaps relevant to understanding the framing of a “RadiCalifornia” ad to remember that Polis is gay). Nevada’s Laxalt is open about the immigration fearmongering on California, falsely claiming that Californians are rioting over sanctuary cities. California is diverse and progressive and successful. No wonder Republicans hate it, and no wonder they can’t admit to its successes. Get out the vote: Want to help Democrats vote but unsure how? Try this: click here, enter your zip code, and RSVP for a volunteer shift. Don’t stop there: Can you chip in $1 to help take back the House and Senate?

Bulgari Launches Spring-Summer 2019 Leather Goods and Accessories Collection

Ultimate pop power and addictive electro love. A profusion of black glam vibes colliding with mouth-watering sorbet shades. Bulgari promises an intense season, rich in surprises, with the new Spring Summer 2019 Leather Goods and Accessories Collection, as per the official release.“Metallic leathers capture the extravagant essence of the wild 80s. Lighting bolts flash with hot tunes of electro music. Black has never been so glamorous, yet no Bulgari  collection would ever be complete without. The season focuses entirely on the unrestrained seduction of the iconic Serpenti Forever: introducing new day wear styles and revamping classic models with irreverent touches of pop and charming finishing, the Roman Jeweller embraces the mesmerizing power of the snake, in its most unexpected attitudes,” says the release.Drawing inspiration from the roaring 1980s and the insatiable appetite for extravagance that marked that era, Bulgari  boasts its penchant for the unexpected infusing its new creations with ultra-contemporary touches of pop.“Metallic Calf heralds an entirely new skin. An unforeseen sheen obtained with the skills of the highest craftsmanship: a liquid metallic foil in silver is first applied on the calf leather, while a second color is later printed on the material through a plotter, achieving the various shadings. Application of a fixative finally preserves its beauty over time,” says the release.“Entirely crafted in matelasse, the technique responsible for its voluptuous sculptural body, it also flaunts a distinctive combination of hexagonal scalelike quilting on the flap cover against the chevron style on the main body. Such a sophisticated craftsmanship injects an urban couture feel into the modern street-style backpack trend. Closed with the collection’s iconic snakehead clasp, the serpentine signature doesn’t stop with the jeweled trademark closure: it continues with the straps, interlaced with a light gold chain and studded with miniature snakeheads,” adds the release.Bulgari, presented B. GLAM, its Spring Summer 2019 Leather Goods and Accessories Collection for the first time at the Bvlgari Hotel Milan during Milan Fashion Week. Select international press, socialites and trend setters were invited to enjoy an exclusive dinner party, with a very special performance by music sensation Jorja Smith followed by a DJ set by Graziano Della Nebbia who had guests dancing until the late hours of the night, according to the release.As per the release, Bvlgari Brand Ambassador Bella Hadid, Jolin Tsai, Lady Kitty Spencer, Jasmine Sanders, Laura Harrier, Hikari Mori, together with Princess Lilly Zu Sayn Wittgenstein Berleburg, Nieves Alvarez, Tamu McPherson, Natalia Osmann, Gala Gonzales, Eleonora Carisi, Gilda Ambrosio, Helena Bordon and Giorgia Tordini, all members of the Bulgari family, were among the guests.Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the collection launch party http://www.blouinartinfo.com Founder: Louise Blouin

The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego Breaks Ground on $95M Expansion Project

The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) broke ground on its long planned expansion project at a special ceremony on October 18 led by MCASD's David C. Copley Director and CEO Kathryn Kanjo, Board President Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, and Founding Principal of Selldorf Architects, Annabelle Selldorf.«Two years ago, on the occasion of our 75th anniversary, the Museum announced a transformative vision for the future: a campaign that would dramatically grow the campus and increase its operational endowment,» says Kanjo. «With the acquisition of additional property, invested stakeholders, and the endorsement of the city of La Jolla and San Diego, the Museum is poised to nearly double its size and quadruple current gallery space.»“Selldorf’s expansion brings cohesion to the campus and clarity to the visitor experience. The design, which doubles the building’s overall size, sensitively responds to its site between the village and shore. It respects and celebrates its place in the coastal landscape as it integrates the needs of the Museum into the aesthetics and culture of the community,” Kanjo adds.Since its founding in 1941 as The Art Center in La Jolla, MCASD has evolved into a leading visual arts organization of national and international renown. With artworks dating from 1950, the permanent collection includes more than 4,700 objects in all media.International in character, the holdings boast strengths in abstraction and minimalism, California art since 1960, Latin American art, and installation art.Established in 1988, Selldorf Architects has achieved an international reputation for work that is sensitive to context and program and thoughtful in execution. Their clients include cultural institutions and universities such as the Clark Art Institute, Neue Galerie New York, New York University, Pratt Institute, and Brown University.In addition, the firm has created numerous galleries for David Zwirner, Hauser & Wirth, and Gladstone Gallery among others, and designed exhibitions for the Whitney Museum, Gagosian Gallery, Frieze Masters, and the Venice Biennale.MCASD's expansion plan was approved by the La Jolla Community Planning Association in August of 2015. In March 2017, the project received unanimous approval from the San Diego City Planning Commission. City officials praised the transformative project for its design and vision. In April 2017 MCASD received its Coastal Development Permit.The Museum anticipates two years of construction following groundbreaking, with an opening planned for 2021.http://www.blouinartinfo.com/                                                              Founder: Louise Blouin
