'SAN DIEGO – Comic-Con attendees flooded the Gaslamp District Thursday night, with many of the more elaborate cosplayers attracting small crowds of people asking for selfies. Among them was Zack Shafer, who told FOX 5 he spent about nine months creating his Iron Man costume. “For me, this is a place to really connect about a character and be told that I’m loved 3,000 over and over,” said Shafer, referring to an emotional line from “Avengers: Endgame.” Another crowd-pleaser was a young girl named Amelia who came dressed up as a rebel pilot from “Star Wars.” “My daddy made it for me,” she said as her dad stood off to the side smiling. He had his hands full pulling Amelia’s little brother in a wagon made up to look like an AT-AT walker from “The Empire Strikes Back.” The family traveled slowly through the crowds, stopping often to allow onlookers to take pictures and videos. “’Star Wars’ is kinda cool,” said Amelia, adding that one of her favorite characters is Darth Vader. For some attendees Comic-Con serves as an annual reunion for friends who live across different states. “These are my buddies,” said Alyssa, who dressed up as Robin, a new “Stranger Things” character introduced in season three. Her group consisted of a Superman, Wolverine and Thor. Alyssa said she sees these friends every year at Comic-Con. Others use the conference to form new friendships over shared fandom. “It’s a great way to celebrate the fandom that I wouldn’t trade for anything,” Shafer said. It's not every day you can take a selfie with bearded Superman, Robin from Stranger Things 3, Thor, and Wolverine all at the same time. #SDCC pic.twitter.com/J0HfNytEUB — Merrilee Moore (@mmooreofficial) July 19, 2019'

Picture this: Blondie tour comes to Boston

Event Boston Herald

Blondie came up in the insanely-fertile, absurdly-cool ’70s New York City rock scene and invented the punk and new wave sound. They had no idea at the time that they were remaking the world.
'Blondie came up in the insanely fertile, absurdly cool ’70s New York City rock scene. Alongside the Ramones, Talking Heads, New York Dolls and more, the Debbie Harry-fronted band invented the punk and new wave sound still dominant in modern rock (see everything from the Killers to Paramore to Carissa Johnson & the Cure-Alls). But Chris Stein — band guitarist, songwriter and co-founder — says they had no idea at the time that they were remaking the world. “I don’t think we had any context for what we were doing, we had seen Bob Dylan and others come out of the Greenwich Village folk scene, but honestly we didn’t know where it was all going,” Stein said. “There was a big social element to it, just seeing friends in bands. We took a lot of what we were doing for granted.” “I will say this, nobody thought we would be doing this in 40 or 50 years,” he added. But Stein, Harry and the rest of Blondie are still doing it — the band plays a co-headlining bill with Elvis Costello at the Rockland Trust Bank Pavilion on Tuesday. Half a generation younger than bands like the Who and Rolling Stones, Stein still gets a thrill out of performing live even if he won’t be charging around on stage. “I know this, Mick Jagger works out a lot more than I do,” he said with a little laugh. “I’ll be sitting down on this tour. Hey, if B.B. King did it, why can’t I?” Stein says writing sessions for new Blondie material have already started and he expects to go into the studio to finish a few songs by the end of the year. Even without the Blondie work, Stein has remained busy with his other passion and vocation: photography. Late last year, he released his latest book of photos, “Point of View: Me, New York City and the Punk Scene,” with shots that range from city street life to portraits of Harry, David Bowie, Iggy Pop and more. “I guess I started with guitars first, but I was always messing around with cameras,” he said. “In the ’70s I was at SVA (New York’s School of Visual Arts), so my camera was always with me. Later, with Blondie, I always toured with a camera and I still do. Although, I will say, I do now shoot a lot on my phone.” Looking back at the early New York scene, Stein can see the city he documented has changed radically. Most of the clubs and storefronts he photographed have been turned into luxury condos or restaurants with $40 charcuterie boards. But it isn’t all bad. “You have a lot less of a chance of getting murdered when you go out,” he said with a straight face. “I’m serious, I have two young daughters (who are teenagers) and they can go out into the city. Sometimes, when we went out, we were taking our lives into our own hands. Blondie and Elvis Costello & the Imposters, at the Rockland Trust Bank Pavilion, Tuesday.

Swamp No More: New Plan Ahead for River

Sports Coastal Review Online

No longer classified as a swamp, work is to begin on a new plan to address the lower Cape Fear River water quality problems that prompted the attempted regulatory end run.
'A segment of the lower Cape Fear River as captured by NASA astronauts, June 15, 2013. Photo: Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit, NASA Johnson Space Center Process to Better Manage Pollution Could Take Years  RALEIGH — Shortly after noon on July 10, the Lower Cape Fear River ceased to be classified as swamp water. The action came during the windup of the state’s Environmental Management Commission’s monthly meeting in the Archdale Building on North Salisbury Street and it ends a regulatory saga with as many twists and turns as the Cape Fear River itself. LOOKING BACK: Cape Fear Pollution Fix: Call It a ‘Swamp?’ At the terminus of the journey is the same predicament as when it started: Starved for oxygen, the lower Cape Fear River is a highly impaired waterway loaded by industrial and municipal discharges and agricultural runoff. At the same time, it’s the main drinking water source in one of the fastest-growing regions of the country. The swamp water status, in place for about four years, was rejected outright by environmental groups as a way around tighter environmental regulation that conditions in the river required. Last year, after an official review, the Environmental Protection Agency said the state had failed to prove as required that the classification was the result of natural conditions. In a brief two-page letter rejecting the reclassification and parts of the state’s current management plan, EPA officials said there was no documentation provided to support the swamp water classification. The reclassification covered the 15-mile tidal, saltwater section of the Cape Fear River from Toomers Creek near Leland to Snows Cut. Map: EPA Last week, officials with the state Department of Environmental Quality’s Division of Water Resource said, in light of the repeal of the swamp water rules and the current management plan’s flaws, the next step should be development of a completely new management plan. The commission obliged and directed the division to develop a new plan for the Lower Cape Fear River Basin. As the follow-up to the decision last week, the Division of Water Resources is expected to formally request the official rule changes during the Environmental Management Commission’s meeting in September. DEQ officials said Wednesday that division staff would be meeting soon to work on the next steps in developing the new management strategy. Officials estimated it could take a year or more to complete the science needed to begin developing a plan. The regulatory framework will take longer as will the public review process and an automatic review of any rules that result by the legislature. As lengthy and complex a process as that’s likely to be, advocates say it is a long-needed reality check. Will Hendrick, senior attorney with the Waterkeeper Alliance, one of the groups that petitioned the Environmental Management Commission to drop the swamp water classification, said developing a new management plan is an opportunity to take a larger look at the river basin. “From my perspective, the opportunity that DWR now has is to take a more holistic view about what is causing the problems that it needs to address in the Lower Cape Fear,” he told Coastal Review Online in a recent interview. “The biggest problem with the existing management plan is that it exclusively looked at permitted, point sources and it exclusively looked at new and expanding permits. It didn’t look at who was currently operating, and it didn’t look at non-point source pollution.” Will Hendrick Hendrick said that means taking a serious look at the effect of upstream nonpoint contributors, primarily large-scale animal operations. “It’s a big and complex system and unless you’re going to look at all the sources then you’re not going to have any chance of solving it. What I hope is that they will meaningfully evaluate all the contributors to the in-stream conditions and not try to hide the ball.” Brooks Rainey Pearson, the attorney for the Southern Environmental Law Center on the reclassification petition, agreed that a new plan has to include an assessment of the impact of sources upstream. “We’ll be looking for a plan that includes all sources contributing to the pollution including upstream non-point sources.” — Brooks Rainey Pearson, Southern Environmental Law Center “We’ll be looking for a plan that includes all sources contributing to the pollution including upstream non-point sources,” she said. A new management plan could take two to three years to go through the rulemaking process. Complicating the process is how rapidly the areas around the river are changing and a new federal designation that will require additional review. In August 2017, the National Marine Fisheries Service designated the lower Cape Fear River as a critical habitat for the endangered Atlantic sturgeon. Brooks Rainey Pearson Rainey Pearson said that designation will require the Division of Water Resources to craft a management plan that will meet dissolved oxygen levels required to sustain the sturgeon nurseries. Hendrick said the division will also have to take into consideration the lack of information about the fast-growing poultry industry and its effects on the watershed. Unlike new hog operations, poultry farmers are not prevented from building in the 100-year floodplain, he said, adding that the state needs to get a better understanding of the size, scope and impact of the growing number of poultry operation in the Cape Fear River basin. “We don’t have a good monitoring system for poultry,” Hendrick said. The Long and Winding ‘No’ Although it involved all the complexities of the state rulemaking process and a federal review, for those who have fought the designation, the story of how the river became a swamp is an example of convenience over science. In spring 2014, the Cape Fear River Program , representing a group of industries and local governments with discharge permits for the river, sought to reclassify the 15-mile tidal, saltwater section from Toomers Creek near Leland to Snows Cut near the Atlantic Ocean from Class SC waters to SW swamp water designation, which would allow for a lower level of dissolved oxygen. Class SC waters are all tidal saltwater bodies that are protected for recreation such as fishing, boating and other activities involving minimal skin contact; fish and noncommercial shellfish consumption; aquatic life propagation and survival; and wildlife, according to DEQ. The SW classification covers waters that have low velocities and other natural characteristics different from adjacent streams. The request worked its way through the state review system before reaching the Environmental Management Commission, which approved the change in September 2015 in the face of objections from environmental groups that called the action a thinly disguised attempt to get around regulations. “The definition of swamp water was inconsistent with the in-stream conditions.” — Will Hendrick, Waterkeeper Alliance The issue also drew the attention of legislators, prompting an attempt by Rep. Billy Richardson, D-Cumberland, to reverse the new rule. The bill failed to get a committee hearing, but Richardson was able to make his case on the House floor when he offered it as an amendment. He called the swamp water classification “intellectually dishonest.” The beginning of the end of the swamp water designation came last year after the EPA’s official review that found the state had no data, specifically anything on stream velocity, to back up its assertion that the stretch of river at issue was a slow-moving swamp. In reality, Hendrick said, the Cape Fear is a fast-flowing river and in the 15-mile stretch that was reclassified it’s likely flowing quickly enough to suppress some of the nutrient retention. “The definition of swamp water was inconsistent with the in-stream conditions,” Hendrick said, “and the EPA pointed that out.”   Learn More North Carolina’s surface water classifications'

Rosario’s Pinch-Hit 3-Run Homer Lifts Twins Over A’s

Sports CBS San Francisco

Pinch-hitter Eddie Rosario drove a go-ahead, three-run homer on the first pitch from reliever Yusmeiro Petit in the seventh inning and the Twins beat the A's 6-3 Thursday night.
'MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Pinch-hitter Eddie Rosario drove a go-ahead, three-run homer on the first pitch from reliever Yusmeiro Petit in the seventh inning and the Minnesota Twins beat the Oakland Athletics 6-3 Thursday night. With one powerful swing , Rosario produced the first pinch-hit homer of the year for the Twins and helped snap their season-high three-game losing streak. Mitch Garver and C.J. Cron each went deep in the eighth to pad the lead, and Taylor Rogers held the A’s down for two innings to record his 14th save in 17 tries. Despite seven strong innings by starter Kyle Gibson (9-4), the Twins trailed 3-1 entering the seventh against Mike Fiers. Luis Arraez, the rookie second baseman who has provided an unexpected midsummer spark, doubled with one out before Miguel Sanó drew a walk. Fiers was pulled for Petit (2-2), the most-used pitcher in the major leagues with 49 appearances, and Rosario crushed the right-hander’s 90 mph fastball off the videoboard facade beneath the second deck in right-center while admiring the trajectory before his trot around the bases. That was his 21st home run, his first since June 23 due to a stint on the injured list for a sprained left ankle, and he obliged the Target Field crowd of 28,432 with a curtain call. With Cleveland on a five-game winning streak to whittle the AL Central lead to four games, the smallest since May 19, the Twins badly needed this jolt from Rosario, who was held out of the original lineup along with All-Star shortstop Jorge Polanco for pre-planned rest. Center fielder Byron Buxton has also been notably absent this week because of concussion-like symptoms. The surging A’s arrived as a formidable opponent for this four-game series, and Jurickson Profar hit a two-run home run in sixth inning off Gibson to give them the edge after an RBI double by Khris Davis tied the game at 1 in the fourth. LOOK OUT! With the first-pitch temperature at 87 degrees on an extra-muggy night, home plate umpire Quinn Wolcott was hit with a double whammy when Cron’s foul ball banged off his mask. He was removed from the game, with Bruce Dreckman moving from second base to fill in after a delay of about 10 minutes. After the unexpected break, Fiers finished the inning with one pitch by completing his strikeout of Cron. BULLPEN SHUFFLE For the second time this week, the Twins dropped a reliever from the roster, this time designating right-hander for assignment Matt Magill, who gave up six unearned runs in one inning Wednesday. Right-hander Kohl Stewart was recalled from Triple-A to take his place, creating a fourth opening on the 40-man roster for potential trades in the next two weeks before the deadline. TRAINER’S ROOM A’s: All-Star 3B Matt Chapman was on the bench with a sore left ankle, after being removed from the previous game after two innings. Twins: Buxton participated in pregame baseball activities on the field and, according to manager Rocco Baldelli, was “energy-wise doing very well.” He’s eligible to return on Monday, but Baldelli declined to speculate about whether he would be immediately reinstated. UP NEXT A’s: RHP Chris Bassitt (6-4, 3.98 ERA), who threw six shutout innings last week in a win against Chicago, takes the mound on Friday night. © Copyright 2019 Associated Press.

Boeing to take $4.9B charge over 737 Max jet

Travel and Experiences The Columbian

DALLAS — Boeing said Thursday it is booking a $4.9 billion charge to cover possible compensation to airlines that have canceled thousands of flights since the 737 Max jet was grounded after two deadly accidents.
'DALLAS — Boeing said Thursday it is booking a $4.9 billion charge to cover possible compensation to airlines that have canceled thousands of flights since the 737 Max jet was grounded after two deadly accidents. The airplane builder also said the Max-related fallout will cut $5.6 billion from its revenue and pre-tax earnings in the April-through-June quarter. The Chicago-based company said the calculations were based on an assumption that regulatory approval for the plane’s return to flying will begin early in the fourth quarter. That timing is earlier than some analysts expected and may have contributed to a rally in Boeing shares in after-hours trading. Boeing is scheduled to report its quarterly results next week. Boeing also raised its estimate of Max production costs by $1.7 billion because output will be curtailed longer than expected. Boeing is still working on fixing flight-control software that appeared to play a role in crashes that killed 346 people off the coast of Indonesia and in Ethiopia. In March, regulators grounded the Boeing 737 Max and the company suspended deliveries of new jets. The $4.9 billion charge does not include amounts that Boeing may pay in the dozens of lawsuits filed by families of crash victims. Boeing this week hired a victims-compensation expert to oversee a $50 million relief fund for families, which the company said was separate from the lawsuits. The $5.6 billion hit to pre-tax earnings is more than half of Boeing’s $10.5 billion profit for all of 2018. “The Max grounding presents significant headwinds and the financial impact recognized this quarter reflects the current challenges and helps to address future financial risks,” Chairman and CEO Dennis Muilenburg said. CFRA Research analyst Jim Corridore said putting a figure on airline compensation and the potential return of the plane in the fourth quarter provided important clarity around the damage inflicted by the grounding. “We expected a large charge, and this is in the order of magnitude we were expecting,” he said. “In general, we are happy to have some details.” The plane’s return has been pushed back several times, most recently after FAA pilots found a new flaw while testing Boeing software changes in a flight simulator. That discovery prompted Boeing to say it planned to present its proposed fix to the FAA “in the September timeframe.” It would likely take several more weeks for the FAA and other regulators to approve Boeing’s work, give pilots additional training, and bring long-parked jets up to flying condition.'

New York rallied to win the second game of a doubleheader 5-1 and opened an eight-game AL East lead over the second-place Rays Thursday night. Luke Voit tied the score in the fifth with his first home run since June 14, and catcher Mike Zunino caused Charlie Morton to balk home the tie-breaking run in a four-run sixth that included Didi Gregorius’ two-run single. The Yankees won three of four in the series and improved to 34-11 against the AL East, including 12-5 against Tampa Bay. Hours earlier, Boone got fired up at rookie umpire Brennan Miller in a profane second-inning rant, and New York awoke from a sleepy start to rally past the Tampa Bay Rays 6-2 in the opener of the doubleheader sweep.

Morton allowed a season-high five runs in 5 2/3 innings. Nate Lowe’s RBI double put the Rays ahead in the third. Morton (11-3) balked when Zunino tried to call time before the first pitch to Gregorius and the pitcher stopped his motion — even though plate umpire Pat Hoberg didn’t grant Zunino’s request. PERFECT ANNIVERSARY: David Cone threw out a ceremonial first pitch before the second game on the 20th anniversary of his perfect game against Montreal.
