URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Warren, 30,000 jobs, and the state of politics OK, I’ll join the muttering about Lovely Warren’s claim about creating or maintaining 30,000 jobs. Warren’s been including that statistic in her list of first-term accomplishments, and she’s come under attack for it, not only from her Democratic opponents but also from the media. I have to say, I watched Warren’s State of the City speech and read the entire 7000-word transcript, and I didn’t even notice her mention of 30,000 jobs. (She did indeed cite them.) She’s also been touting it in her campaign. I just hadn’t noticed it. The reason, I guess: everybody throws around these kinds of numbers. All politicians do, and they’re usually meaningless. Andrew Cuomo is a master at this. Monroe County’s Industrial Development Agency does it. And everybody includes the same little parenthetical aside: these are jobs “created or retained.” You know: new jobs… or jobs that a company says it would have eliminated or moved out of town or something if government hadn’t given it what it wanted. Tourism groups, festival sponsors, and arts group do this kind of thing, too, talking about how much money their efforts or their events generate for the local economy. They don’t know what the real number is, of course. They use some sort of national base line: “With every person who buys an event ticket, you can assume an additional X dollars will be spent, on a hotel room, at restaurants, for gifts to take home….” So event sponsors multiply X by Y and they get… zillions of dollars! Years ago, there was a big convention of teenage religious groups in Rochester, and officials were tossing out enormous numbers, boasting about how many dollars the convention was pumping into the Rochester economy. Where’d the numbers come from? National convention stats. This was a group of not particularly affluent kids, more likely to be dining on pizza delivered to the convention center than eating out at a downtown restaurant. And very likely sharing their hotel room with a bunch of other kids. Not your average convention-goers. And certainly nothing like convention-goers in, say, New York, Chicago, or San Francisco. These kinds of figures are so irrelevant that I don’t pay attention to them. Until they are relevant. And in this case, they are. Warren’s running for re-election. Like anybody in her position, she should
Development, crime, and poverty are complicated. But voters don’t want anything to be complicated. So political candidates keep things simple.” talk about what she has accomplished that warrants keeping her in office. That includes job creation. And frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised if the number of jobs has grown during the last four years. Every once in a while, we get a press release about a new start-up locating in the city, or a tech company moving in from the suburbs. Nothing huge, but they’re important. There’s also been a reasonable amount of construction work: filling in the Inner Loop, building the new downtown housing, completing College Town, creating the new marina in Charlotte. Those are real jobs – not permanent ones, but real. So we have seen new jobs. And we haven’t seen the kind of enormous layoffs of the past at places like Kodak. The problem is, when questioned about her 30,000-jobs claim, Warren couldn’t back it up. She should have been able to, or she shouldn’t have used it. This is a particular problem for Warren, whose opponents insist that she isn’t trustworthy. But there’s another problem, for which everybody – politicians and the voting public – shares blame. We want things to be simple. We don’t want to consider current news as a part of a much longer cycle. For instance: the Warren administration has played a role in the development spurt that’s happening downtown. She didn’t create it. Credit for that goes to previous administrations, dating back many, many years. And continues on page 5 rochestercitynewspaper.com

Create a new public square
With the city administration’s selection of the performing arts center for Parcel 5, attention must be paid to creation of a public square for downtown. The Gallina proposal retained a substantial open space on the interior of the Midtown redevelopment block, but if the theater proposal goes ahead, that won’t happen. A very vocal and substantial number of city residents believe a public square should be a high priority. Here are two alternative options: 1) The existing linear park from the rear of Parcel 5 to South Clinton Avenue. This is an incredibly boring and empty, wind-swept space as built. If the new streets flanking Parcel 5 and the existing and proposed buildings facing this linear park to South Clinton had coffee shops and specialty retail adjoining, it could become an exciting public square, and one of appropriate size for Rochester. (Just big enough to appear crowded.) Not being on Main Street could be an advantage: An approach along narrow streets with sidewalk-fronting retail and coffee shops could be more inviting than Main Street. 2) Martin Luther King Park (née Manhattan Square Park). Saturday, April 22, saw nearly a thousand Rochesterians assemble for a rally to celebrate the importance of science. This space is a stone’s throw from the heart of downtown. It needs refreshing to relieve the cold feel of the new brutalist design. The recently redone green parts of the park and playground and skating rink work wonderfully. The original design created excitement with water features and light. These need to be reintroduced. The restaurant space has been vacant for years. Surely, with the current attention to developing culinary entrepreneurs, this space could again enhance the experience of hanging out at this public square. RICHARD ROSEN

For every project in the city or county, whether it is Parcel 5’s performing arts center, development along the former Inner Loop, or expansion at the zoo, if someone isn’t asking how these projects might help address poverty, then poverty isn’t being addressed at all. Every project is an opportunity, and it can be an opportunity to address poverty… if someone lets it. TOM JANOWSKI

Warren continues from page 3
credit goes not only to public officials but also to neighborhood groups, to small businesses, to business groups, to the developers themselves. But the Warren administration deserves credit, too. When she took office, there was a lot of concern about whether she would turn her back on downtown, whether developers would continue to have faith in downtown. Apparently many of them have. There’s a similar problem with the crime rate, which has also become a point of contention in the mayoral campaign. In her State of the City speech, Warren said that the rate of violent crime is down. Jim Sheppard’s response: “zero credibility.” Who’s right? Both, kinda. Sorta. Some crime – the number of shootings, for instance – was down in 2016. Some crime is up. One of the most troubling statistics, though, is that the city’s homicide rate – the number of homicides as a percentage of the population – is up. The city’s population has shrunk. And the rate of homicides relative to that population has been increasing. In fact, it has been increasing for 50 years. As RIT’s Center for Public Safety Initiatives said in a recent report: “The uniformity of the trend means that no city administration or associated law enforcement agency has fared better or worse, and there is no justified criticism of one more than another.” It’s good that we want facts. And we should get real facts, not alternative facts. But a lot of times, a single fact, for one year – or four years, even – doesn’t give us the whole story. Crime in Rochester is complicated. Development is complicated. Poverty and education and tax incentives: complicated. But voters don’t want anything to be complicated. So political candidates keep things simple. Doesn’t fit into a TV soundbite or on two lines of a glossy direct-mail campaign piece? Then forget about it. I could rant about TV’s abysmal news programs or the idiocy of conducting an exercise in democracy by direct mail, TV ads, and robocalls. But the fact is, voters want their news in soundbites and bullet points. This year’s city elections offer a chance for serious discussions about our problems. I’d like to think candidates and voters are smart enough to advantage of it. We’ll see.

Plan submitted for Cobbs Hill
Rochester Management, the non-profit that owns Cobbs Hill Village, submitted a revised site plan to the city’s Planning and Zoning department for review. The plan, which was presented to residents and community groups last month, calls for 98 units within two two-story buildings and three three-story buildings. Some residents in the area have opposed the $25 million senior housing project due to its location within Cobbs Hill Park, but Rochester Management officials say they’ve made some costly

GOVERNMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE
Lawsuit targets county tax-bill policy The towns of Brighton and Irondequoit are suing the county over a policy change that they say will limit their ability to address problem properties. The two inner-ring suburbs are challenging a county decision to stop reimbursing towns for certain charges on unpaid tax bills. State law gives counties, but not towns, the authority to foreclose on tax-delinquent properties. So under state law, counties assume and pursue tax debts and reimburse the towns. Towns often add charges to tax bills for mowing untended lawns, securing abandoned houses, and tearing down dilapidated buildings. The county argues
that those charges aren’t really taxes, so it’s not going to cover them anymore. “We are confident that the courts and the public will see that the county meets its obligations to our municipal partners,” county spokesperson Brett Walsh said in an e-mailed statement. “This suit by two towns attempts to force residents in other towns throughout this county to subsidize their town budgets.” Town leaders — Republicans and Democrats — have publicly criticized the county policy. Irondequoit and Brighton officials say it would cost each town hundreds of thousands
of dollars to do the maintenance and demo work without some way of recouping expenses. Irondequoit has made aggressive efforts to secure, maintain, or demolish vacant and abandoned properties. “The county should be a partner with towns in addressing these blighted properties,” says a joint press release from Brighton Supervisor Bill Moehle and Irondequoit Supervisor Dave Seeley. “Rather, they have opted instead to penalize towns working to combat blight and significantly weaken our enforcement of these troubled properties.”
City Council has long had the authority to subpoena records related to investigations, but apparently it hasn’t ever used it. And regardless of what that information shows, Council won’t be able to share most of it.
CRIMINAL JUSTICE | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Support’s growing for reform of police oversight Concerns over police conduct aren’t new, in Rochester or many other cities. Nor is the public push for reform. But in Rochester this year, support for reform has been gaining strength. On the heels of 18-year-old Ricky Bryant’s lawsuit charging police with using excessive force and a citizens-group report calling for an independent review board, City Council is preparing to subpoena records related to the Bryant case. And Council President Loretta Scott says she wants Council to go further: she supports an independent, citizen review of police conduct, she said on Friday. This isn’t the first time city officials have tried to increase civilian oversight of police. Previous protests and task force reports resulted in the current system, in which a citizen panel reviews police misconduct investigations. But while that has brought outsiders into the review process, the investigations themselves are done by police, and the police chief makes decisions about discipline. Council has long had the authority to subpoena records related to investigations, but apparently it hasn’t ever used it. And regardless of what that information shows,
Council won’t be able to share most of it. State law protects police officers’ confidentiality. Former Mayor Bill Johnson says he thinks it’s time to push for changes in all parts of police oversight: the union contract, the Civilian Review Board, and state law. Johnson hasn’t always felt this way. In the past, he has told activists pushing for an independent review board that they already had one, in the form of elected City Council members, who get reports from the Civilian Review Board and who have subpoena power. That’s no longer enough, Johnson said on Friday. Since City Council can’t disclose most of what it learns from subpoenaed records, the nine Council members would know what the information showed, Johnson said, “and 200,000 people wouldn’t.” “We are in a whole different era,” he said, with citizens documenting police actions on video cameras and smartphone and sharing those images on social media. Both sides – the police union and community activists – have to change, Johnson said. “I would say to the police union: You’ve gotta change your rhetoric,
your stance, from ‘We will not allow any investigation of the police.’ That’s just not politically feasible any longer.” Activists have to acknowledge that “99 percent of the interactions between police and civilians do not involve misconduct,” Johnson said. “We’re dealing with a small fraction of people.” And the public should push for a change in state law dealing with the confidentiality of officers’ personnel records. Getting that law changed won’t be easy, Johnson said: “The police union is as formidable as the teacher’s union.” But, he said, “Just because taking them on is difficult doesn’t mean you should avoid it.” “This is different than talking about wages,” Johnson said. “We’re talking about upholding the law and respect for the law. If you want civilians to respect the law, you have to uphold the law.” And the public has to trust that people are being held accountable, Johnson said. And Council President Scott stresses the importance of police credibility, of the community having confidence in police. The perception of misconduct is greater than the reality, she said, but the lack of transparency has destroyed trust in the police in some parts of the community.

And the destruction of that trust affects public safety, she said. Johnson agrees. “We’ve got to understand that erosion of respect for police is as great a threat to public safety as violence,” he said.

Confronting Rochester's AIDS crisis
Pharmacist Ashley Zuppelli, Trillium Health’s director of innovative services, in the Trillium pharmacy. PHOTO BY KEVIN FULLER HEALTH CARE | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
Reducing fear of HIV/AIDS When Tim Brumfield walked into Trillium Health not long ago, he was more than a little scared: had he contracted HIV, the virus that causes AIDS? Brumfield, a tall, good-looking young man with a winning smile, says he had had a recent sexual encounter that concerned him. So he went to Trillium to get tested. The organization provides primary medical care and has a long history in the Rochester-Finger Lakes region of treating individuals with HIV/ AIDS and hepatitis C. “I came in for STI testing – gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and HIV,” he says. But Brumfield left with a drug called PEP, Post-Exposure Prophylaxis. If taken within 72 hours after exposure to HIV, the antiretroviral drug prevents infection from the virus. PEP isn’t a new discovery in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Emergency room doctors and physicians familiar with antiretroviral medicines have known for some time that a combination of drugs prevents infection after a potential exposure to HIV if taken right away. But just how PEP is being administered is new. Governor Cuomo signed a bill in March that allows pharmacies to administer PEP if they meet certain 8 CITY
MAY 3-9, 2017
requirements. The legislation was part of Cuomo’s larger plan to end the HIV epidemic in New York State by 2020. The state leads the nation in the number of people living with HIV/AIDS, according to a detailed 2016 report, the New York State HIV Epidemiological Profile. Reaching the governor’s 2020 goal involves three initiatives, says Ashley Zuppelli, a pharmacist and Trillium’s director of innovative services. First, increase testing for everyone and getting people who are HIV positive into treatment. Second, keep people who are HIV positive under care, so that the virus stays at undetectable levels and it is less transmittable. Third, provide HIV-negative people with PReP, a pre-exposure prophylaxis, Zuppelli say. PReP, which became available about two years ago, is a drug regimen taken daily to prevent HIV infection The similarly named PEP, however, gives health-care workers another opportunity knock out the virus when someone may have recently had a highrisk exposure to HIV, Zuppelli says. But time is of the essence, because there’s an extremely short window to kill the virus. After three days from exposure, there’s less likelihood that the drug will work. The drug, which is actually a
combination of three drugs, attacks HIV’s lifecycle by preventing it from replicating and then hiding in the body in stealthlike reservoirs. The need for PEP is probably higher than we think, Zuppelli says. People may have unprotected sex because they think they’re in a monogamous relationship, or they have sex and the condom breaks. Occupational exposures, such as needle sticks, and sexual assaults are other reasons to prescribe PEP, she says. Not all primary care doctors feel comfortable prescribing antiretroviral drugs, Zuppelli says. As a consequence, many people don’t go to see their doctor if they suspect they’ve recently been exposed to HIV. Prior to the new law, the emergency room was the only place people could get PEP, “which is a barrier,” Zuppelli says, “because usually people don’t want to go to emergency rooms.” While the new law allows pharmacies to provide PEP, it’s still not available in all pharmacies. Trillium’s pharmacy is one of the few in the state that can offer the drug outside of New York City. If you go to the Trillium pharmacy and say you think you’ve been exposed to HIV, continues on page 10
When William Valenti read a report about a disease with some unusual characteristics, he created a folder for it and saved it. There was something about the case that intrigued him, even though he had no idea at the time that it would be the first of many cases to follow. That was more than 30 years ago, when he was just starting his career as a doctor. And the disease Valenti had read about in the report was AIDS. Valenti began treating some of Rochester’s first AIDS patients in the early 1980’s, and later co-founded Community Health Network, now Trillium Health. He has been a leader in HIV/AIDS treatment and research and helped galvanize Rochester’s response to one of the worst epidemics of the 20th century. “For a while, I deluded myself into thinking that AIDS wasn’t really in Rochester,” Valenti writes in a recently published book, “AIDS: A Matter of Urgency – a Doctor’s Memoir.” He had hoped that the disease would remain in other locations, but he soon realized by the volume of people he was seeing that wasn’t the situation. In the book, Valenti describes the challenges of coming out as a gay man himself in the early 1980’s, a time when AIDS emerged and coincided with extreme public intolerance toward gay men. He gives compassionate accounts of patients he still remembers in vivid detail, like Adam. The young man was so disfigured by Kaposi sarcoma, a rare form of cancer, that people walked the other way when they saw him on the street. “I thought one day when I was exhausted that I didn’t want to do this insane work anymore,” Valenti writes. “Then I thought of him. I still admire his guts, his courage.” In many respects, Valenti has written more than the standard memoir. His book is a tribute to his patients and to Rochester, and to many people who, despite their fears and convictions, asked how they could help.

you’ll get a brief screening to make sure you’re a candidate for PEP, Zuppelli says. If you are, you’ll be given a sevenday supply. “At the same time,” Zuppelli says, “the pharmacist here will link you to services at Trillium to complete the drug’s 28-day course.” The full course is needed to be effective. Trillium’s pharmacy has a 24-hour service with an on-call pharmacist, so people can be given a starting dose of PEP at any time day or night, at (585) 210-9000. And it doesn’t matter where people live, Zuppelli says. Even if they’re in Buffalo, Trillium will get the medication to them, she says. While some critics have warned that
PReP and PEP will lead people to take a more casual view of sex and increase their high-risk behavior, no data supports that claim, says Zuppelli. Talking about HIV testing and prevention has led to a broader – and some say a much-needed – discussion about sexual health, similar to the way we talk about heart health and diabetic health. For instance, Trillium’s counselors were in steady contact with Tim Brumfield to make sure he was taking PEP properly through the four-week regimen. He was tested for HIV before starting on PEP to make sure he wasn’t already HIV positive and to establish a benchmark. He was tested again after he completed the treatment, and he was negative. But Brumfield’s consultations with Trillium didn’t end there. He then began taking PReP as a preventive measure. And while Brumfield says he understands why some people may be concerned that drugs like PReP and PEP might encourage someone to be more promiscuous, that’s not what he has experienced, he says. He meets regularly with his health care team at Trillium, since going on PReP. He is tested more frequently, and he says he is more aware of the decisions he makes concerning sex. “You’re coming here every three months, and you’re closely monitoring your own sexual health,” he says. “And what that does is give you a way to take control. You’re taking control of your own sexual health.” Fear of testing begins to fade, and confidence and peace of mind grow, he says. “You already know you’ve been tested recently,” he says. “And after going through the risk assessment, you actually go into those next encounters thinking about the things you just 10 CITY MAY 3-9, 2017

It keeps you aware of what you’re doing.” If people go to Trillium for PReP or PEP and it turns out that they are already HIV positive but didn’t know they were, they can begin treatment to not only protect their health, but the community’s as well. The number of new HIV cases in
New York has steadily declined from its height of 14,000 new infections annually to about 3,500. Still, 10 percent of new HIV cases in the US are diagnosed in New York each year. Although drugs like PReP and PEP are helping to reduce new HIV infections, Zuppelli says, barriers to information about sexual health persist. For instance, while HIV cases are declining, syphilis, which was nearly irradiated in the 1960’s, is increasing. And people with STI’s like syphilis are much more vulnerable to HIV infection. “We do know that our young black men who have sex with men are at the highest risk of contracting HIV,” she says. And more outreach effort needs to be directed toward heterosexual women, particularly women of color, she says. PReP and PEP are available to everybody, she says, not just gay men. “Thirteen to 26 is the highestrisk age group,” Zuppelli says. As of April, minors can seek HIV prevention and treatment on their own, which previously wasn’t allowed in New York. “If I have a minor come in, I don’t have to have their parents come in and sign off for them,” she says. “That’s groundbreaking for us if we really want to achieve the 2020 goal. That’s the age group we must target: test, link to care, and get on PReP.”

An artist rendering of the upcoming Midtown EATS event. The series kicks off Thursday along the Tower 280 pedestrian walkway. RENDERING PROVIDED BY BERGMANN ASSOCIATES
Midtown pops up Midtown EATS THURSDAY, MAY 4, AND REPEATS EVERY FIRST THURSDAY THROUGH SEPTEMBER 11 A.M. TO 1 P.M.; 4 P.M. TO 9 P.M. ROCHESTER’S MIDTOWN AREA, 280 EAST BROAD STREET MIDTOWNEATSROC.COM [ FEATURE ] BY MARY RICE
A new dining event is joining the summer lineup. The Midtown EATS series, a popup restaurant showcase, will feature local restaurants serving lunch and dinner in downtown’s Midtown area. Set for the first Thursday of every month — with the inaugural event on Thursday, May 4 — Midtown EATS will give Rochesterians an opportunity to sample the city’s diverse edible offerings. More than a dozen restaurants — including Branca, Blu Wolf Bistro, Tapas 177, Sticky Lips, and Itacate — will set up shop along the pedestrian walkway in front of Tower 280 on Broad Street, and will be offering lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and dinner from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. There will be seating for those who want to stay and linger, but all food will be available to go. Beer, wine, and cocktails will also be available during dinnertime.
Midtown EATS is produced by the Springut Group, the same outfit behind the Lilac Festival and Park Avenue Summer Art Fest; the organization’s president, Jeff Springut, has been intrigued by the concept of a restaurant pop-up series since seeing similar events in New York City and other cities. But it wasn’t until Allie Sebastian of Morgan Management (which, along with Buckingham Properties, developed Tower 280) called Springut to propose the concept that things really got moving. Springut Group began soliciting restaurants in December 2016 and was met with enthusiasm — as Springut says, “No one said, ‘That’s not a good idea.’” For Springut, who himself worked for 30 years in the restaurant industry before going into event marketing, good food is the way to draw people to Midtown: “Food is the lowest common denominator,” he says succinctly. The way Springut sees it, Midtown Rochester is right on the “cusp of success,” and the pop-up series could be a “catalyst” toward further development. Having seen success with downtown residences, developers are keen on seeing more retail and restaurants in the area; several major developers, Springut says, have made contributions to launching Midtown EATS.
Aside from its objective to draw more people downtown, Midtown EATS is also a way to celebrate the city’s evolving food scene. The series encourages Rochesterians to branch out and try new things, and is using the slogan “push your palate.” In turn, the monthly event also gives local chefs an experimental opportunity in which to prepare new or offmenu items with comparatively little risk. (Spoiler alert: expect cow tongue tacos). To that end, Springut Group has put together a lineup of local chefs and restaurants keen to show Rochesterians the breadth and depth of city’s foodscape. One face you can expect to see is Kevin McCann, owner of McCann’s Local Meats on Clinton Avenue in the South Wedge. Founded in 2015, McCann’s has already received a positive response from Rochester carnivores. McCann believes the event will incentivize people to spend more time in Midtown and recognize the potential of the area, beyond simply a location for offices. He also hopes his presence at the event will encourage his already-loyal customers to patronize other local restaurants. When it comes to pushing palates, McCann says his business aims to “break the cycle of culinary apathy” by giving his customers a “flip-the-light-switch moment”
with locally-sourced meats in a variety of cuts both familiar and uncommon. He’ll be bringing those principles to the table on Thursday: for the first Midtown EATS, McCann’s will be serving charcuterie plates, selections of cured and salted cold meats ideal for a (hopefully) warm day. For establishments already located in Midtown, the event will bring welcome foot traffic. Tony Colon, owner of Fuego Coffee Roasters (45 Euclid Street), practically in the shadow of Tower 280, says he’s watched the development of Midtown happen in his business’s front yard. He thinks Midtown EATS will be a sort of “test market” for chefs to decide if the downtown area can be profitable. Although Fuego is just a stone’s throw from the Midtown pedestrian walkway, the coffee bar will be set up on the sidewalk with a batch of its cold-brewed coffee in tow. According to Springut, more restaurants are still signing on for both the first Midtown EATS and subsequent events throughout the summer. “We’re not going begging for vendors,” he says. Still, Springut tinges his optimism over Midtown EATS with a bit of cautious reserve. When asked if everything so far is going better than he thought it would, “Ask me May 5th,” he says with a laugh. rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 11

Allyson and her twin sister, Whitney, the band’s keyboardist, want to use Cannon the Brave to project a positive message and smash the cynicism around them.

Bromberg is an encyclopedia of Americana and a fine singer-songwriter in his own right with a large catalog to tap into with his excellent quintet. — BY RON NETSKY

“Paris Salon” FRIDAY, MAY 5, AND SATURDAY, MAY 6 TWO LOCATIONS $10-$20 | PUBLICKMUSICK.ORG [ CLASSICAL ] Paris in the pre-guillotine 18th century was a European center of arts, ideas, and fashion, which were often discussed and created in salons. The fashions included music, and chamber music in the French style accompanied many of these high-toned get-togethers. For its concerts this weekend, Publick Musick will recreate a Paris salon, with an array of elegantly-turned music, including one of the so-called “Paris Quartets” by Georg Philipp Telemann, a cello sonata by Jean Barrière, and a violin sonata by le Chevalier de Saint-Georges.

“Celebration of the Piano VI” THURSDAY, MAY 4 HOCHSTEIN PERFORMANCE HALL, 50 NORTH PLYMOUTH AVENUE 7 P.M. | $5-$10 | HOCHSTEIN.ORG [ CLASSICAL ] Hochstein’s “Celebration of the Piano” is like a
recital on steroids. Featuring eight pianists, the setlist includes diverse works by J.S. Bach, Dave Brubeck, Claude Debussy, Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff, and Schubert. What makes the concert this Thursday especially tantalizing is the promise of an ever-changing musical complexion as the program progresses from solo-pianist compositions to works with extremely dense textures. The evening culminates with composer Aram Khachaturian’s most famous work, “Sabre Dance,” arranged for all eight pianists playing at once. — BY DANIEL J. KUSHNER
Dave Alvin & the Guilty Ones, and Sarah Borges. Arbor Loft,
At one point in the life of most hard rock bands, the important aspects of a music career shift from chasing that big record deal and copious amounts of cocaine to playing rock ‘n’ roll and not giving a damn. American Acid doesn’t give a good god damn. And to prove it, the hard rocking trio from Rochester has just released “Born To Rock,” if for nothing else than to show fans where the band’s priorities are. One complaint before we dive in any further: this is an EP, and it’s too short. But the five tracks that did make the cut are straight-up loud and fast hard rock. Metal heads will dig it, but it’s not metal; same goes for punk. As the title suggests, the songs are relatively anthemic, like the title track or “Paid My Dues,” where singer and bass player Doug Mac sings (howls, really) a few clicks north of his range. This adds to the guitar and drums’ breakneck boogie. The formula works: get a hook, turn it into a riff, riff hard, rinse, and repeat. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Gordon Munding “River’s Risin’” Self-released facebook.com/gordonmundingmusic
I know; I know it’s the blues, with all its requisite death wish lamentations barreling toward an inevitable dead end. But here’s a certain sinister irony that can result in laughter … or more tears. On “River’s Risin’,” Gordon Munding plays the blues — folk blues, some may call it — but without the despair you’d expect. “River’s Risin’” is stripped down to just Munding and his National Steel. There’s a little upright bass, along with several of Munding’s 16 grandchildren, but for the most part, this full-length album is a one-man affair. What’s compelling is that it’s all the man’s own material. Munding doesn’t cop out to cash in; this is all his own worry and botheration. He isn’t sharing his misery, though. Rather, he’s letting us watch him work it out with 10 fingers and a slippery slide. The production on “River’s Risin’” is straight-ahead, and it serves the songs nicely. When done right, the blues can hurt so good. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Beautiful restraint [ INTERVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Junkyard Fieldtrip PLAYING AS PART OF THE GREAT ROCHESTER COVER-UP 2.0 FRIDAY, MAY 5 THE RECORD ARCHIVE, 33 1/3 ROCKWOOD STREET 7 P.M. | $10 | RECORDARCHIVE.COM; JUNKYARDFIELDTRIP.COM
Junkyard Fieldtrip started out in 2014 as a purge. It was a focused endeavor to write songs whose fragmented existence was floating in the heads of founding members Mike Gladstone and Rob Smith. It wasn’t long, though, until the purge became an urge; the two wanted to develop things into a band and play around town. So Gladstone and Smith invited drummer Emmett Ientilucci and bassist Don Torpy aboard for the ride. Junkyard Fieldtrip just released its debut, eponymous CD, starring the four at its core, plus featuring a pile of Rochester who’s who. What’s amazing here isn’t the power under the hood of the all-star guest lineup, but rather its restraint. There is want, need, pain, and pleasure all executed in varying degrees of subtlety. This is due in large part to Gladstone’s guitar mastery, found in passages like the heartbreaking finger-style opening to “Blind.” The band does manage to kick into higher gear on songs like the exuberant pop-rock gem “Dusty Radio,” but it never harshes the mellow. 14 CITY MAY 3-9, 2017

duo in 2014, and we wanted to play out. As time went on, we got louder and kinda got to where it is now. It was rock ‘n’ roll, a little bit rootsy. I hate to use the word “Americana,” but it was rock with a lot of acoustic instruments. As an influence, Rob likes artists like Jason Isbell and Ray LaMontagne. That being said, we’ve written a lot of hard rock tunes, some that didn’t make it on the record.
What would you like accomplish with your playing?
[ BLUES ]
How did you choose the material that landed on the album?
Is taking on the role of your own producer a wise choice?
Well, there were two schools of thought: just throw everything in the pot and let it go, or find the songs that fit together, make it more coherent. We went that way.
I’m a bit of a control freak. I tend to overthink things a lot and do a lot of second guessing. But if I listen to it and like it, I’m happy. The easiest thing was bringing in all the local musicians to play on it, like Mike Edwards, Karen Flack, Linda Rutherford, Johnny Cummings, Elvio Fernandes, Greg Gefell, and Todd East — a lot of people I really admire.
CITY: This started as a vehicle to write songs? Mike Gladstone: We started out as an acoustic
As a duo, how did you flesh the songs out?
Some of the songs on the record are me playing everything. Our next record, I plan having everybody on and make it more collaborative. But some of these songs had been around for so long. I just wanted to get them out there. Are you reluctant to collaborate?
No, not at all. I welcome it. List some of your influences.
I would love for someone to say my playing tells a story, especially in regards to soloing: making it a song unto itself and making you feel something. You’re quite a lyrical player.
I pride myself with that.
What was the hard part?
Picking out songs that were cohesive. It all starts with a song. You’ve got to have a good song. The fun part for me is building on what the song dictates where it wants to go. You’ve just got to open your ears and listen for that and let it go where it’s gonna go.

Every 98 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted. In addition to that statistic, the Department of Justice estimates that there are more than 320,000 victims of rape and sexual assault each year in the United States. In 2015, only 32 percent of sexual assault cases were reported, which means the already staggering numbers are actually higher. Now, what if many of the unreported assaults were committed by individuals who have pledged to protect our country’s honor? Through May 21, Geva Theatre Center explores this question with the world premiere of “Other Than Honorable,” the second to last Wilson Stage offering of the season. “Other Than Honorable” follows Army officer-turned-lawyer Grace Rattigan, a woman whose vulnerable emotional 16 CITY MAY 3 - 9, 2017
state is heightened by her husband Billy’s deployment to an unknown location. While he is away, Grace decides to take on a military sexual assault case that hurtles her eight years into the past and forces her to make a series of monumental decisions. With a few supportive friends by her side, Grace begins digging into the military’s greatest secret: sexual assault. Playwright Jamie Pachino has a list of awards and writing credits that include the Kennedy Center Fund for New American Plays production grant; screenwriting for Amazon and Disney; and a current position as a writer-supervisor for NBC’s “Chicago PD.” Her plays have been produced in four countries, and this is her second world premiere at Geva (her play “Splitting Infinity” opened in 2006). Ms. Pachino’s work often carries heavy-hitting themes, and “Other Than Honorable” fully embraces that quality. Director Kimberly Senior (Broadway’s “Disgraced”) carefully guides a cast of 11 through the play’s gritty content. In the leading role of Grace Rattigan, Jessie Datino holds nothing back in her raw, emotional portrayal of Grace. She is the linchpin for the entire show.
As Captain Billy Rattigan, a character seen only on a projected screen, John Wernke is infinitely likeable as Grace’s calming, loving spouse. Elizabeth Rich, who plays a dry-humored Dr. Brenda Kurtz, is at once the supporting comedic role and catalyst for much of Grace’s life-altering decisions early in the play, while Jason Kolotouros delivers a chilling portrayal of Brigadier General Gideon Kane. Rounding out the cast are Aimé Donna Kelly (PFC Lydia Walsh), Barbara E. Robertson (Alvina Croft), Juan Francisco Villa (Major Hector Nuñez): all commendable in their respective roles. Rochester-based actors Rory Cushman, Christian Hurdle, Jill Rittinger, and Ariana Rivera appear briefly as onscreen “witnesses.” Jack Magaw’s scenic design is masterful, incorporating a revolving floor and walls with a capacity for video projections. Lighting design by Josh Epstein informs the mood throughout each scene, while projections by Miles Polaski add an impactful, chaotic visual element. Costumes by Nan Zabriskie are so normal yet nuanced that they manage to influence each character’s stage presence. The original music and sound design by Lindsay Jones is especially brilliant. Jones has both film and stage scores under his belt, and his design for “Other Than Honorable” feels a bit cinematic. The unforgiving, blaring rock riffs between scene changes function as a conduit between audience and stage, creating more tension as the show builds. “Other Than Honorable” is an exhausting, gripping, devastating triumph, exposing issues that desperately seek a champion. After this run, it will undoubtedly be part of many more theatrical seasons across the country. A show like “Other Than Honorable” has the potential to demonstrate that audiences do, indeed, want more than fun in a theatrical experience. Some want to analyze, to be challenged, to be tasked with the weight of issues usually swept under the rug. Hopefully, many Rochesterians will give “Other Than Honorable” a try. Saturday’s house was eerily silent through much of the show’s two and a half hours, but the curtain call was reminiscent of Geva’s February show, “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” which brought the entire audience to a standing ovation before the cast even took a bow. By producing the world premiere of “Other Than Honorable,” Geva proves – once again – that it is so much more than an entertainment venue.

THEATER | AN EVENING OF ONE ACTS Everyone’s Theater Company will give one of its signature presentations this weekend at MuCCC: an evening of original, one-act plays, from serious to highly amusing, written, directed, and acted by local artists. For many years now, ETC has presented a chance to cheer on local theater creators, and it’s an opportunity to see a lot of diverting, and often brand-new, work you might not otherwise see. This weekend’s lineup includes six plays: “Odd Scouts Out” by Jenn Dlugos and Charlie Hatton and directed by Amanda Lobaugh; “Ghosts” by Maria Brandt and directed by Justin Rielly; “To Take Your Lunch to Work” by Byron Wilmot, directed by Amanda Lobaugh; “12 Dollars” by Bruce Stewart and Emmett Michie, directed by Gary Dewitt Marshall; “The Intoxicated,” written and directed by Cady Walker; and “Moon Over Gomorra” by Byron Wilmot, directed by Susan Zuris. Everyone’s Theatre Company will present “An Evening of OneAct Plays” on Thursday, May 4, through Sunday, May 7, at MuCCC Theatre, 142 Atlantic Avenue. 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday; 1 p.m. on Sunday.

DANCE | “CARMINA BURANA” AND “CARMEN” If you like a little scandal in your entertainment, New York State Ballet and Rochester Lyric Opera have a double feature to whet your appetite for intrigue. This Friday and Saturday at The Lyric Theatre, NYS Ballet and RLO will perform excerpts from two veritable classics: Georges Bizet’s beloved opera, “Carmen,” and the culturally ubiquitous cantata, “Carmina Burana,” by Carl Orff. “Carmen” and “Carmina Burana” are choreographed by Sarah Rothrock-Rickel and Robert Royce, respectively. A 17-member orchestra — led by Nazareth College’s Jared Chase — along with vocalists Sue Cotroneo (RLO managing director), Shaya Greathouse, Katie Hannigan, Mitchell Hutchings, Jessie Keim, and Robb Zimmerman, provide the musical support. “Carmina Burana” and “Carmen” will be performed on Friday, May 5, and Saturday, May 6, at The Lyric Theatre, 440 East Avenue. 7 p.m. $20-$50. 270-1765; lyrictheatrerochester.org. — BY DANIEL J.

A page from Dave Chisholm’s new graphic novel, “Instrumental,” which is accompanied by a musical soundtrack and is available at comic books stores this week. PHOTO PROVIDED
Ode to the joy of creating “Instrumental” by Dave Chisholm AVAILABLE THROUGH COMIC BOOK STORES ON MAY 10 AND AMAZON ON MAY 23 DAVECHISHOLMMUSIC.COM [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
Rochester-based musician, artist, and writer Dave Chisholm’s new graphic novel, “Instrumental,” uses music as a means to consider existentialism, higher dimensions, and down-to-earth concerns with success. Through thoroughly engaging storytelling and enthralling illustrations, the book blends a fantastical adventure into ordinary creative lives and offers philosophy about the balance of talent, ambition, and power. “Instrumental” opens with a group of musician friends living in an unnamed city that Chisholm illustrates with plenty of gritty character. While they’re mostly content to noodle their way through regular gigs at the pianist’s flower shop, the trumpet player and moody bandleader, Tom, dreams of more. Everything changes in dreammaking but devastating ways when a stranger hands Tom a magical artifact — a potent horn he has no business tooting. Tom’s increasingly chaotic experience is 20 CITY MAY 3 - 9, 2017
reflected expertly by changes in illustration style. As Chisholm weaves together threads of music history and matters of the spirit, Tom’s mundane life brushes against the inscrutable, and the story careens toward a shattering conclusion and resolution. Unlike most comic books, “Instrumental” comes with its own soundtrack. Each of the seven chapters of the book is accompanied by a track from the album, which is an ethereal and intense opus Chisholm composed and performed with Aaron Staebell (drums), Ben Thomas (bass), Mike Conrad (piano), and Noah Berman (guitar). The album features Chisholm on trumpet, vocals, synth, and he also mixed it. Chisholm is man of manifold talents with dozens of irons in the fire. In addition to his graphic novel projects, he sings and plays guitar with the rock band Talking Under Water, and performs wedding and party gigs with the cover band The Swooners. He’s got a few freelance illustration jobs for books and comics currently cooking. And he’s the director of the music lab at Hochstein School of Music & Dance, where he teaches jazz theory and improvisation and wears a bunch of other hats. Among his past publishing endeavors, Chisholm did some work with Dark Horse Comics and contributed a few pages for a “Little Nemo”-inspired anthology called “Dream a
Little Dream,” which won an Eisner Award. The seed of “Instrumental” formed around this time. “I had this idea of doing a book about a trumpet player who has a horn that kills people,” Chisholm says. “That was the simple hook of the book in my brain.” The story continued to evolve in Chisholm’s mind during the five years that he pursued his masters and PhD. He earned his doctorate in jazz trumpet from the Eastman School in 2013. “When I was studying for the comps test, the big 14-hour test at the end of the doctorate at Eastman, I came across all of these music history figures who were somehow involved in mysticism or the occult,” Chisholm says. Things clicked into place. “I was like, this is it! These people have to be in the book,” he says. The identity of some of historic figures Tom encounters — John Coltrane, Mozart, and Hildegard of Bingen — are more obvious than others when they appear in cameos throughout the work. “I deliberately don’t name them, because Tom doesn’t know who they are,” Chisholm says. “He’s not a student of music history per se.” Chisholm began working on “Instrumental” the day after he finished the test at Eastman. He finished it within 10 months by following the rigorous work routine patterned after his study habits. “I was in this weird, fevered, completely obsessed space,” he says. Getting it published took longer; it’s been almost four years since he began the book. Publishers were skeptical at first, Chisholm says, because he’s a relatively unknown artist and author. “It’s been a rollercoaster for me, just sitting on this for so long,” he says. When the book opens, Tom is already a relatively malcontent guy who grapples with the fear of mediocrity and yearns for greatness. But when he gets his hands on the destructive trumpet, the new power he wields does a negative number on him. It’s a fairly universal problem that creatives face. “It’s something I struggle with just like Tom does,” Chisholm says. “I wrote some of the conversations as a reminder to myself to keep perspective as an artist. I don’t think I’m as hellbent on the rat race or hustle, the competitive aspect of it as Tom is, but I do personally lean a little too strongly on getting my work affirmed by outside parties, instead of doing it because I love to do it. And I do love to do it! When I’m in the zone and working, it’s like time-travelling. It’s an amazing experience. I lose hours, just working. But then when it’s all said and done, it turns into this struggle of, ‘what if people don’t like it?’” Dave Chisholm will be present for a book signing and listening and art session at Rochester Central Library on May 31, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., and will present a version of the soundtrack at Joe Bean on June 15.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Thursday, May 25 WWW.ROCHESTERDOWNTOWN.COM THEATER | “DEATH OF A SALESMAN” Blackfriars Theatre’s is closing its 2016-17 season with the classic “Death of a Salesman,” a “relevant, relatable, and timeless” story, as Director Brian Coughlin says, about old Willy Loman, a shoe-shining salesman with too many shortcomings to count.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning play will feature David Munnell as Willy, David Andreatta as Happy, Patricia Lewis as Linda, and Danny Hoskins as Biff. “Death of a Salesman” will be onstage Friday, May 5, through Sunday, May 21, at Blackfriars Theatre, 795 East Main Street. 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays with the exception of Saturday, May 6, 7 p.m.; Sundays at 2 p.m.; 7:30 p.m. on Thursdays. $28.50$36.50. 454-1260; blackfriars.org. —BY KIARA ALFONSECA

FILM | THE NITRATE PICTURE SHOW Over the years, an air of mystery and danger has been cultivated around nitrate film, and not just because of its notorious reputation for catching fire and burning movie theaters to the ground. Nitrate film has a picture quality that remains unparalleled for its vibrancy and clarity. From Friday, May 5, through Sunday, May 7, The George Eastman Museum (900 East Avenue) will continue to ensure the volatile medium gets its due, bringing The Nitrate Picture Show back for its third year. The weekend’s events will include lectures by film scholars Hisashi Okajima and Alexander Horwath; and of course, the main event: nine feature film screenings, all shown on glorious nitrate film. Individual film screenings are $20 ($18 students and museum members). Full festival passes are $150 ($125 for students and members), with a Patron Pass also available for $250. Check CITY’s website, rochestercitynewspaper.com, early next week for a recap of the Nitrate Picture Show’s festivities. — BY ADAM LUBITOW

Techno babble [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
Here, Emma Watson is Mae, an idealistic, recent college grad who lands her dream job at a Facebook-Google-Apple-esque tech corporation “The Circle” called The Circle. Its founders (Tom Hanks (PG-13), DIRECTED BY JAMES PONSOLDT and Patton Oswalt) preach utopian ideals of NOW PLAYING technology fostering human connection (Hanks uses his trustworthy, nice-guy demeanor to great We live in an increasingly interconnected world, effect, and he’s the best part of the movie). Mae and at this point it’s pretty clear there’s no going buys into the company’s cult-like atmosphere, back (at least until the impending apocalypse rising up the corporate ladder until she’s eventually occurs, then we’re all on our own). As society grows agreeing to “go transparent” by appearing on more Orwellian, it stands to reason that artists will camera 24/7 and broadcasting it over the Internet. continue to create stories that sift through exactly Allowing complete strangers to observe every what the changing face of technology means for moment of her life without any barrier — save the people living with it. The conflict between for three minutes of alone time designated for security and privacy is a subject worth exploring, bathroom use — ends up alienating her parents so hopefully future filmic efforts will be less clumsy and ham-fisted than “The Circle.” The film daintily (Glenne Headly and Bill Paxton, in his final film performance) as well as her off-the-grid friend, dips its toes into the discussion but fails to offer Mercer (“Boyhood” star Ellar Coltrane in, I’m sad up any real insight, coming across like the direct to report, an abysmal performance). And before descendant of alarmist cyber-thrillers, like “The long, it seems *gasp!* that there may actually Net,” that were so popular in the mid-90’s. be a downside to dismantling one’s sense of privacy. Who’da thunk? “The Circle” boasts an impressive pedigree: the film is based on a Dave Eggers novel, directed by the generally wonderful James Ponsoldt, and employs a talented cast. So John Boyega and Emma Watson in “The Circle.” PHOTO COURTESY STX ENTERTAINMENT what went wrong?

/ MOVIES 26 CITY MAY 3 - 9, 2017
The film clearly has much it wants to say about surveillance, collection of personal data, and the role of technology in our lives, but those ideas are so superficial and poorly thought out that they remain frustratingly vague. We never get a handle on what The Circle’s agenda is; they don’t seem malevolent so much as willfully ignorant about the consequences their technology has when enforced on people’s actual, messy lives. The characterization of Mae is similarly all over the place, seesawing wildly from skeptic to true believer. And her semi-flirtatious relationship with a mysterious employee (John Boyega, utterly wasted) who skulks around offering cryptic warnings makes absolutely no sense. The film gets a few decent laughs out of its satirical depiction of corporate culture and jabs at social media activism (“We’ve sent over 180 million frowns from the US alone, and you can bet that has had an effect on the regime!”), but there’s no avoiding the feeling that this has all been done before and better — even last summer’s YA thriller “Nerve” managed to cover a lot of the same ground much more effectively. By the end, “The Circle” feels like a cautionary tale that can’t decide exactly what it’s cautioning us against.
“Unbroken Glass” (NR), DIRECTED BY DINESH DAS SABU SCREENS TUESDAY, MAY 9, 7 P.M., AT THE CINEMA THEATRE

and film, starts off Tuesday with the powerful “Unbroken Glass,” from director Dinesh Das Sabu. Orphaned at only 6, Sabu was left with little memory of his parents while they were alive. What he does know doesn’t paint a happy picture: his father was abusive and died of stomach cancer, and his mother was schizophrenic and committed suicide shortly after her husband’s death. By filling in the details, Sabu hopes to better understand them and overcome his feelings of anger and resentment. Sabu begins a personal journey, looking back with his four siblings — two sisters and two brothers — and making a visit to his extended family in India. Through photo albums and conversation, he attempts to piece together a part of his family’s history he was too young to understand while it was happening, and confront his family’s legacy of mental illness and what it means for his own battles with depression. Sabu will be in attendance at the screening for a Q&A following the film. The Reel Mind series continues with biweekly installments, concluding with a short film program and art show on June 20. Tickets are $28 for the series or $8 for individual films and are available online or in person at NAMIRochester (320 North Goodman Street). More info at reelmindfilmfest.org.

157 South Fitzhugh Street One of the most unique houses in Corn Hill, and indeed in the city of Rochester, is the tall, narrow brick house at 157 South Fitzhugh Street. The residence matches its neighbor at 159 and a one-time third residence at 155, now an empty lot and part of this property. Similar in design to the rowhouses of larger cities in the northeast, this house is an example of late 19th century High Victorian Gothic. Just three bays wide, yet three stories high, the house has a projecting pavilion with Gothic detailing on the window below a steeply-pitched roof, carved stone lintels, wrought iron railings off several windows, as well as an iron cresting on the pavilion roof. All three houses were built c.1875 by Ebenezer Sill, owner of the Sill Stove Company. The front entrance is accessed by metal steps that were salvaged from the original Eastman Building of RIT, which had its home in the old Third Ward before moving to its Henrietta campus in 1968. Another recycled item visible from the street is the wrought iron fence, originally from Mt. Hope Cemetery and now fronting the lawn area. Inside, the “tall” continues with high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and three long staircases that lead to the second and third floors as well as the basement. Much of the house’s historic fabric remains including wood floors, moldings, and stone fireplaces in the front parlor and dining rooms. A gas-fired stove warms the
parlor. The owners recently renovated the kitchen with new floors, cabinets, granite counters, and hanging fixtures recycled from a Rochester city school. Beyond the kitchen is a sitting room with a round window that overlooks a Japanese-style garden with a fish pond and falls, also added by the owner. The second and third floors contain a total of five bedrooms, two full baths, a small kitchenette on the third floor, and the laundry area. Two small ells off the front bedrooms on each floor are potential dressing rooms or nurseries. The full basement contains a sitting room, storage area for bicycles, a room for exercise machines, an area with a wet bar, and, finally, a home theatre with two rows of plush seating. Outside is a separate garage with a loft above, which is accessed from a rear alley, and a pleasant stone terrace, lawn and garden area. The Corn Hill Historic District is the oldest city residential district on the west side of the Genesee River and home to a congenial and diverse community committed to the stewardship of its historic neighborhood. With close to 4,000 square feet, this spacious property is offered at $399,900. Contact Richard Sarkis of Nothnagle Realtors at 585-455-4504. by Ann Parks Ann is a Landmark Society volunteer.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
Mother of Invention
Robotic models of living organisms are useful to scientists, who can study the effects of stimuli without risk to actual people. Northwestern University researchers announced in March that its laboratory model of the “female reproductive system” has reached a milestone: its first menstrual period. The “ovary,” using mouse tissue, had produced hormones that stimulated the system (uterus, cervix, vagina, fallopian tubes, liver) for 28 days, reaching the predictable result. Chief researcher Teresa Woodruff said she imagines eventually growing a model from tissue provided by the patient undergoing treatment.
Recurring Themes (and Updates on Previous Characters)
Chutzpah! Henry Wachtel, 24, continues in legal limbo after being found “not criminally responsible” for the death of his mother in 2014, despite having beaten her in the head and elsewhere up to 100 times — because he was having an epileptic seizure at that moment and has no memory of the attack. A judge must still decide the terms of Wachtel’s psychiatric hospitalization, but Wachtel’s mind is clear enough now that, in March, he demanded, as sole heir, payoff on his mother’s life insurance policy (which, under New York law, is still technically feasible). Epic Smugglers: In February, federal customs agents seized 22 pounds of illegal animal meat (in a wide array) at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Among the tasty items were
raw chicken, pig, and cow meat, brains, hearts, heads, tongues, and feet — in addition to (wrote a reporter) “other body parts” (if there even are any other edible parts). In a typical day nationwide, U.S. Customs and Border Protection seizes about 4,600 smuggled plant or animal products. Over the years, News of the Weird has covered the long-standing campaign by animal-rights activists to bestow “human” rights upon animals (begun, of course, with intelligent orangutans and gorillas). In March, the New Zealand parliament gave human rights to a river — the Whanganui, long revered by the country’s indigenous Maori. (One Maori and one civil servant were appointed as the river’s representatives.) Within a week, activists in India, scouring court rulings, found two of that country’s waterways deserved similar status — the Ganges and Yamuna rivers, which were then so designated by judges in Uttarakhand state. (The Ganges’ “rights” seem hollow since an estimated one billion gallons of waste still enters it every day despite its being a holy bathing spot for Hindus.) Yet another intimate accessory with weak security drew attention when hackers broke down a $249 Svakom Siime Eye personal vibrator in April, revealing a lazily created default password (“88888888”) and Wi-Fi network name (“Siime Eye”). Since the Eye’s camera and internet access facilitate livestream video of a user’s most personal body parts, anyone within Wi-Fi range can break in (and be entertained) by just driving around a city looking for the Siime Eye network.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 30 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Romantic opportunities will come to you as long as you participate in the things you enjoy doing. Catching up with old friends, attending a reunion or reconnecting with an old flame through social media looks promising. Be the one to instigate a gathering if no one else does. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t carry emotional baggage into the future. Let go of the past so that you can move forward with optimism. Take a unique approach to life and to love and you’ll discover someone who shares your beliefs, concerns and life goals. If you love someone share your feelings.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You body language will speak for you. Taking an active role in community events or getting involved in a cause will attract someone who is a warm and giving as you. Discussing your ideologies will make you inseparable as well as lead to the perfect freespirited relationship. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll be attracted to someone very different from you. Don’t let your background beliefs or peers stop you from finding out more about one another. You can’t make a decision to just be friends or more if you don’t explore what you both have to offer.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): All things exciting will attract you this week. Your involvement in physical activity and your input when collaborating with groups of interest will lead to unexpected connections that show the potential to form a good working, personal or passionate relationship. Follow your heart and lead with your Leo charm. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Play it cool and laid back. Getting all worked up over nothing won’t help you find love. A calm nonchalant approach to life, love and happiness will attract a lover who is looking for a solid partner to develop an equal, engaging relationship that can stand the test of time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll find it problematic to settle down and even more difficult to make up your mind when it comes to love. Too many choices and not enough time will leave you confused, vulnerable and easy for someone to make the decision for you. Don’t make promises you won’t keep. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Do your own thing and don’t worry too much about who is watching you and who isn’t. The more unique you are and relaxed in your own skin the faster you will attract someone who can mirror your originality every step of the way and together you will form an exceptional relationship.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ve got all the right moves now all you have to do is follow through and give that special someone everything you promised. Don’t back down when there is so much to explore with someone who is just as adventuresome, experimental and as liberal as you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t tru st what you are told. Someone may want to pick your next partner for you. Decline a blind date and stick to your own set of rules and standards when it comes to finding love. No one knows what you like in a partner better than you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll keep coming back to partners who have a similar appeal. Consider all your past loves and pick the qualities that moved you the most. The next move is yours. Reconnect with someone you miss or check out someone new who is better but reminds you of the one who got away. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Too much pressure will get in the way. If you try too hard or pretend to be someone you aren’t to make a good impression all will be lost. Be yourself, do your own thing and you will find someone who is just as quirky who has just as much to offer.
