The speed wars When Time Warner Cable recently announced that it is raising cable internet rates, customer complaints were inevitable. But Time Warner officials say that the increase is needed to pay for system upgrades that will help meet consumers’ growing data needs, due in large part to use of streaming digital video and online video gaming. But many critics are also looking to places like Kansas City, where Google is installing a super-fast
fiber optic network. There, Time Warner is boosting its speeds to compete. Locally, and in many places across the country, such competition is lacking. Critics say that all too often, companies don’t have incentive to offer higher speeds and better prices. How can communities and companies best meet the growing need for broadband speed? And what revolutions await when innovators have access to all the speed they want?

Protecting the watershed
It would seem to me that this is such a simple thing (“HemlockCanadice’s Watershed Moment,” News). Those currently developing the area’s management plan know how the people feel. It would be so simple to just write very specific and very clear language in the plan to rule out all possibilities of drilling on or under the 7000 acres. I have to wonder what strings are being pulled that could keep the language out of the plan. This is supposed to be about the environment, not hidden corporate interests. The city had its opportunity to remain the owner of this land and remain in control of it. That time has passed. I applaud every effort to keep these lakes free from development and especially gas and oil drilling. TOM JANOWSKI

Unfortunately, Mary Anna Towler’s comprehensive article regarding charter schools further obfuscates the topic (“Changing My Mind About Charter Schools,” Urban Journal). The most comprehensive study she cites defines lottery participants as a single class, valid for comparison between winners and losers. The study concludes that charter schools are better than standard public schools by comparing the results of winners (in charter schools) and losers (in public schools). Clearly there is no validity to arriving at this conclusion. The lottery winners, in charter schools, are in schools where EVERY student has more than average parental involvement. The losers are in schools where many, probably most, students have limited or no parental involvement.
The conclusion I draw is that parental involvement is helpful to student performance, but the school environment is also important. In this case, one could conclude that a school with 100 percent parental involvement will do better for their students than a school with limited parental involvement. There are two possible ways to address the question of whether charter schools have better outcomes than standard public schools. 1) My preference is to establish two or three charter schools in a district, like the City of Rochester, where students are assigned to the charter schools by a truly random selection process. Then require the charter schools to keep all of the assigned students, just as public schools must. 2) Create two or preferably three general public schools in which all the students are the lottery losers. No students whose parents did not participate in the lottery can be admitted. These public schools must conform to all district rules and guidelines, just as any other public school must. They must be in their own buildings. Parental involvement must be required comparable to charter schools. In either or preferably both of these scenarios, valid conclusions comparing the ability of charter schools to offer superior educational performance may be drawn. DAVID RUBIN
It is wonderful that opportunities for poor and underprivileged parents and children to pursue a successful primary education are becoming more plentiful, but I am perhaps more reluctant than Towler to back charter schools as a solution to the miserable state of urban education. There are problems with public education, and I don’t believe myself intelligent enough to propose solutions; merely, I fear that the successes of private education will come to overshadow the remaining unfortunate many who will undoubtedly be left out and forced to pursue public education. I fear that we as a public will become satisfied by the mild gains of charter schools and forget about the ever-present issues facing public education.
If we as a community are not prepared to continue working toward the betterment of the less privileged, the less wealthy, the less educated, if we are not focused on reforming the public education system so that it proves effective even after the introduction of more charter schools, then we are submitting to a debilitating cultural apathy. The problems of our education system aren’t fixed by an accessible collection of private institutions. After all, the private education system only serves a select few. If we are not mindful about providing an adequate education system and climate in which students and families may succeed, what’s the point? We, as a community, are still leaving a large portion of the population within the clutches of a broken system. We must ask ourselves if this is ok. THOMAS CANTONE
While I accept and understand that much of what Mary Anna Towler said is true and potentially good for some children, the outcome is frightening. She points out that “charter schools tend to have fewer students with disabilities and students for whom English is not the primary language.” So let’s see: Children with more difficult home lives; who have emotional, physical, or behavioral problems, or do not speak English well, all go to public schools. In addition, if charter school students are having difficulty, they can be immediately sent back to public schools. The result is to have charming charter schools and nightmarish public schools, with reduced funds and staff, which are held up for constant public scrutiny. It reminds me of the April 1968 film, “A Class Divided,” where blue-eyed children and brown-eyed children are set against each other. Now any child walking into a Rochester public school is already deemed a failure. Ask yourself: Are you going to try to get good grades under these circumstances? Probably not. The only fair thing is to level the playing field. All charter schools should be required take all students regardless of desirability. ELLEN M. MANCUSO

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
The test score rage: rhetoric versus reform Well, that gave everybody something to talk about, didn’t it? State education officials released school-district scores on standardized tests last week, and the news was awful. Only 31 percent of the state’s students met or exceeded the “proficiency” standard for math. And only 31.1 percent of them met the English standard. And among the large urban school districts, Rochester brought up the rear: only 5 percent of the district’s students met the standard for math. Only 5.4 met the English standard. City Council President Lovely Warren, who is running for mayor, held a press conference, deriding incumbent Tom Richards for accepting the endorsement of the Rochester teachers union. Warren tried to avoid blaming teachers (“It isn’t teachers who are failing our children,” she said), and instead attacked their union and its long-time president, Adam Urbanski, for, in her words, blocking “efforts to improve and reform.” Urbanski fired back, challenging Warren to “a public debate on the role of the union in educating children.” (She declined.) Education-reform activists lashed out at the test itself, and at standardized testing. And in opinion pieces in the Democrat and Chronicle on Sunday, a variety of school board candidates attacked the tests, Superintendent Bolgen Vargas, the teacher’s union, parent engagement, the new curriculum… you name it. Look, folks: we already knew that we have a crisis in urban schools, not just in Rochester but in urban school districts throughout the nation. These latest test scores don’t indicate that things have gotten worse. As State Education Commissioner John King said when he released the results, the state is simply using a different kind of test to measure what students have learned. And not only are the tests different but so is the school curriculum. New York, like many other states, has decided that schools aren’t teaching children what they need to know. So we have a new curriculum, which teachers themselves are still learning. The good thing is that Rochester’s stunning 5 percent statistics got everybody’s attention. And the school district and its problems are certainly an essential topic for the current political campaigns. But despite all of the outrage last week, nobody was talking about doing the really hard things that we have to do. And until we do them, little will change. For instance: I don’t know how we let children get to third grade unable to read. Roc the Future, a two-year-old community

Despite all of the outrage last week, nobody was talking about doing the really hard things that we have to do.” effort to address that problem, has been slow to get off the ground. And I don’t hear anybody talking about ending the social promotion policy that passes children through grade after grade, headed toward high school with minimal reading and math skills. Nobody will touch the issue of metropolitan schools, despite the evidence that poor children do worse in highpoverty schools. And how shocking do the statistics have to get before we agree that the concentrated poverty of our inner-city neighborhoods has a profound effect on children? How do we expect children with few language skills and serious emotional or disciplinary problems to do well in school? The most important thing we can do to help them succeed is to make sure that they’re ready for school when they start. That will take extensive support for parents and their children, from infancy on. That will take a lot of money. And nobody’s coming up with it. And we haven’t even talked about teachers: how to train them well and pay them well (as opposed to yelling at them). It’s so easy to be shocked by test scores, so easy to single out small pieces of the problem, froth at the mouth about them, and point fingers. It’s harder to pull together, agree on the complexity of the urban education problem, and commit the resources to make some progress. The test scores we saw last week told us nothing new. Neither, unfortunately, did the community’s response.

Test scores stun
The most recent set of state exams showed that only 5 percent of students in the Rochester school district are proficient in math, and only 5.4 percent are proficient in English. The tests are supposed to be a benchmark as educators across the state implement a tougher curriculum. State officials have repeatedly said that the lower scores were expected.
Marina bids wanted
The City of Rochester is seeking bids from developers to begin construction on a $20 million redevelopment of the marina at the Port of Rochester. Construction would begin in 2015 on a first phase that would deepen the marina basin and add 85 slips. The second phase would add 72 slips. The project would also include commercial and residential components.
Feds promise money for train station

No negative impact for University Ave. project
Most of the members of the City of Rochester’s Preservation Board said that a 99-unit apartment complex proposed for 933 University Avenue would not have a significant negative impact on the surrounding area. The property is in the East Avenue Preservation District and concerns have been raised about the project’s size and its suitability for the site.
The Pythodd lives again Mention jazz and most Rochesterians will immediately think of the yearly Jazz Festival. But for others, particularly those who lived in the Third Ward neighborhood during the 1950’s, the Pythodd Club on Clarissa Street was the height of cool. Filmmaker Tina Chapman DaCosta has captured the club’s history in her documentary film “Remembering the Pythodd.” The film, which was selected for the 2013 High Falls Film Festival, will be shown at 7 p.m. on Friday, August 16, at the Flying Squirrel Community Space, 285 Clarissa Street.
Chapman DaCosta, who is completing her master’s degree in film at the Rochester Institute of Technology, spent much of last year researching the film and finished making it last spring. From the 1950’s through the early 1970’s, the Pythodd drew musicians and vocalists from all over the country. They were often making their way to New York City, Chapman DaCosta says, where jazz was flourishing. Lou Donaldson, Lonnie Smith, John Coltrane, and Kenny Burrell all appeared at the Pythodd, says Chapman Da Costa.
Our favorite pick-up line
While researching the film, Chapman Da Costa says she was told that Miles Davis and Sarah Vaughan played the Pythodd, too, and that George Benson sang publicly for the first time at the legendary club. In the film, much of the history of the Pythodd is told by two women who lived near the club: Diane Sheffield, a longtime Rochester resident and community organizer, and Gloria Winston, a columnist for the Minority Reporter. The club was lost to urban renewal in 1972. The site is now a parking lot.

Plastics plague Ontario, too
The real story
Researchers have already confirmed the ubiquitous presence of tiny plastic pieces, called “microplastics,” in several of the Great Lakes. Now a SUNY Fredonia professor says that she’s found microplastics in Lake Ontario, too. This summer, SUNY Fredonia associate professor of chemistry Sam Mason led a group of University at Buffalo students in collecting samples from Lake Ontario. In total, they collected 20 samples of lake water. And while the results haven’t been analyzed yet, Mason says that she saw microplastics — pieces less than a millimeter in diameter — during visual inspections. Previously, Mason and other researchers found and analyzed plastics pollution in Lakes Superior, Huron, and Erie. Erie has the highest concentration of microplastics. But the new Lake Ontario samples, which were mostly collected along the lake’s edge, appear comparable to Lake Erie, Mason says. “We’re finding the highest counts when we’re close to shore,” she says. Mason says that she’ll be able to make a better comparison once the Ontario samples are analyzed over the next six months. If the samples do reveal high concentrations of microplastics, researchers will probably collect more samples from the lake, possibly from farther out in the waters.
Mason and her students found some larger pieces of plastic in Lake Ontario, too, including a cigarette butt and a garbage bag tied to a balloon. Researchers also revisited Lake Erie Researchers have this summer to collect found plastic microbesamples from other ads in the Great Lakes. parts of the lake. And PHOTO PROVIDED this month, Mason and researchers from the 5 Gyres Institute, which is known for its studies on plastics pollution in the oceans, are taking samples from Lake Michigan. The lake’s waters haven’t been analyzed for plastics pollution. Mason says that she and her fellow researchers believe that microbeads — a type of microplastic — come from beauty products, such as exfoliating washes. Water treatment plants may be unable to filter out the beads, Mason says. Some companies have pledged to stop using the microbeads. Ultimately, Mason says she wants to know whether fish, seabirds, and other aquatic animals are ingesting the plastics. And if so, what are the potential effects? Some toxic substances like pesticides will cling to plastic pieces.
Reuters reports that Chesapeake Energy is dropping its court fight to extend gasdrilling leases in parts of New York. At issue were some Chesapeake leases in the Southern Tier, many of which, Reuters said, “were agreed to long before a boom in hydraulic fracturing swept the United States.” | The article says that landowners in Broome and Tioga counties sued to stop Chesapeake from extending the leases. | Some of the landowners realized that they were getting far too little money for the rights to drill on and under their land. Others become concerned about the environmental impacts of fracking. | The article also says that Chesapeake’s decision is partly due to frustration with New York’s de facto moratorium on fracking. | But Chesapeake still holds quite a few gas leases in New York, and a good chunk of its leases in Onondaga County have automatic renewal clauses. It’s probably safe to say that Chesapeake has leases in other counties that renew automatically. | And at least some of the landowners don’t object to drilling and fracking on their property. They just object to the terms they negotiated before they knew how much the potential gas resource under their land is worth. New lease agreements are entirely possible.

EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
Finding the readers within Jose Valentin, a small boy with big brown eyes behind thin wire glasses, liked the summer reading clinic at Nazareth College so much that he never missed a day. On the one morning he was late because he missed his bus, his teachers immediately began to worry. But staying home was not an option. Valentin got his parents to drive him to Nazareth, and then he found his classroom himself — a big accomplishment for a 6 year old. Valentin was one of 20 children selected from the kindergarten class at School 9 for the Rochester City Schools Summer Literacy Program. The students at School 9 and another 20 students from School 17 were chosen by their principals because their low reading skills threatened their ability to move up to the first grade. The four week reading intervention program, which just ended, is specifically designed to help students like Valentin catch up. School officials are also trying to prevent the erosion of skills during summer break. The program typically ran from about 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday, but students arrived between 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. They rushed to several tables where mounds of age-appropriate books were spread like a colorful smorgasbord: “Llama Llama Misses Mama,” “Beverly Billingsly Borrows a Book,” and “The Story of Mrs. Lovewright and Purrless Her Cat.” The students broke into small groups where the adults, usually Nazareth grad students who participate in the program as part of their training, read to them for 20 minutes. After a brief snack of fresh fruit, students went to work on what veteran teacher Jeanne Crowther called the morning message: a few simple sentences carefully printed on large white paper tacked to the wall. One read, “Sadie is a girl. She is 6. She has a pink scarf.” Crowther was teaching the basics of early reading and then building from there, something reading teachers call scaffolding. “Can they rhyme, recognize letters, and the sounds that those letters make?” Crowther says. “Do they read from left to right, instead of all over the page? And do they know what happens when you reach the end of that sentence? That you have to come all the way back to the left side of the page and start again?” She quizzes the students, first asking them to find the word “she.” One child circles the words with a fat red marker. Crowther then asks for someone to frame the word “pink” with their hands, and for another child to frame a whole sentence. The framing exercise indicates that the students are beginning to see how sentences are structured, Crowther says, and more 6 CITY

importantly, that text represents an idea or thought in print. It can also represent speech. City schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas has made reading proficiency a key component of his strategy to improve academic achievement. And with good reason. Last week, the State Education Department released the results of the last round of state exams, which showed that only 5.4 percent of city students in grades 3-8 are proficient in English. Research clearly shows that children who are not reading to proficiency standards by third grade are at an increased risk of not graduating. That’s because children are learning how to read up to the third grade. But somewhere between third grade and fourth grade, children must transition from learning how to read to reading to process new information. If they can’t read to grade level, they gradually slip further behind until it becomes extremely difficult for them to catch up. One recent study by researchers at Johns Hopkins University showed that disadvantaged urban children are at greater risk of developing literacy problems. While they may be progressing well when they are in school, instead of maintaining what they’ve learned or adding to it during the summer months — as is frequently the case with children from more affluent families — the reverse occurs. They lose ground, according to the study. There’s also a psychological component to developing reading skills, says Naomi Erdmann, director of Nazareth’s graduate literacy program and the college’s reading clinic. “Once a child loses confidence in reading, it’s very hard for them to get it back,” Erdmann says. Reading is the gateway to all kinds of experiences and endeavors in and out of school, she says. “Failure at first grade reading leads to failing at everything else, and this is very difficult for children,” she says. It can be so traumatic that she often cautions her graduate students and teachers in the field about referring negatively to the challenges their students have with reading. Often they already know something is wrong

and they’ve developed fears that can start to block learning and cause them to retreat, Erdmann says. “Every child comes with a suitcase, and we have to unpack it,” she says. “No judgments. We’re here to help them develop a love for reading.” And it’s important to remember, Erdmann says, that reading is a highly advanced human capability. It involves multiple senses, oral and cognitive skills, as well as short- and long-term memory. “If a child is not progressing and they have to sound out every word, they will forget where they started,” she says. “Long-term memory carries past experiences. They may already know that there is something called a dog, but then they learn that there is a type of dog called a poodle.” But the most difficult milestone for most children in mastering reading, Erdmann says, is learning how to listen. “They don’t know the difference at this age between hearing and listening,” she says. “We learn more from listening than probably anything else we do.” That’s partly because listening requires concentration and engagement. Children at this age are still developing their attention span, Erdmann says. “We’re constantly pulling their attention back to us,” she says. “It’s not until about third grade that they can control their own listening.” As important as the summer reading program is for students, there were some
unresolved issues. For starters, even
though Nazareth’s Erdmann says that she is confident that the students made significant progress, it’s not completely clear how well the program prevented the summer slide in students’ reading skills. The students were assessed before starting the program, during, and they will be assessed again in the fall to see how much they retained. And attendance was also a problem, as it often is in city schools. While the district funded the program, provided door-to-door bus service, and breakfast and lunch, some students didn’t show up at all and others showed up sporadically. Caterina Leone-Mannino, the district’s director of expanded learning, says that the concept of summer school is new for many families. The district is trying to shift the community’s mindset to year-round learning, she says, which is imperative to improving achievement in city schools. “It’s going to take time,” she says.

the wars When Time Warner Cable announced recently that it’s raising cable Internet rates, customer complaints were inevitable. And once the grumbling started, it became clear that many customers believe that they are going to pay more a month for less-thanstellar Internet connections. “Other people around the world do not pay close to what we pay for Internet service,” says Phillip Dampier, a local cable and broadband watchdog. “We’re among the most costly places on earth to buy Internet service. It is cheaper and faster overseas, and not usage capped.” Time Warner spokesperson Joli Plucknette-Farmen says that the company bumped up the speeds of some of its cable Internet plans last year. And she says that the rate increase is necessary to pay for infrastructure upgrades that allow the company to meet consumers growing data needs, including faster speeds. “It’s really about us providing the most reliable Internet services possible,” she says. But the increase and accompanying complaints point to a serious issue that isn’t unique to Rochester. Consumers in communities across the country have few choices for home broadband providers. Some critics say that most communities are stuck with a duopoly, and that the lack of competition has resulted in incremental speed increases with disproportional pricing. Time Warner is not Rochester’s sole high-speed Internet provider, but it has the vast majority of broadband subscribers. Frontier, with its phone linebased DSL service, pulls in most of the remaining subscribers. Critics say they are frustrated because they see Time Warner offering higher speeds in Kansas City and Austin, markets where Google is building extremely

fast fiber optic cable networks. Though in both Google’s and Time Warner’s offerings, the higher speeds also come with prices in the $75 to $80 per month range. And Time Warner’s speeds still don’t match fiber’s speeds. Time Warner’s most popular broadband plan in the Rochester region is its middlespeed package, which costs $35 a month on a one-year introductory basis. Increasingly, speed does matter as consumers keep finding more uses for their home broadband networks. No longer do households simply have a single computer hardwired to a high-speed modem. People are streaming high-quality digital video to large televisions; for several years, streaming digital video from services like Netflix or Hulu has been the largest driver of growing household data consumption. Plucknette-Farmen says online video gaming is also driving a lot of the data consumption on Time Warner’s networks. And consumers are also downloading and streaming music. They’re connecting smartphones, tablets, and videogame consoles to home Wi-Fi systems. Or they back up their computers using cloud-based services. And different members of a household are often doing several of these things simultaneously. Other trends, such as the growth in telecommuting, could add stress to broadband networks, locally and nationally. Ultimately, the more data that broadband connections can provide, the better consumers’ devices or streaming services will function. “I think with technology, there’s always going to be a need for more and more bandwidth,” Plucknette-Farmen says.
Alternatives to the broadband duopoly are
few, but they do exist. Some communities, dissatisfied with the options or services available to them, have built their own networks, though the arrangements and technology vary. Some communities have formed cooperatives to build better networks. In other cases, local governments have stepped up. And in many cases, the entity in charge strives to build a fiber optic network, since that technology is seen as the best bet for meeting growing data needs. The city of Mt. Vernon, Washington, built an open-access fiber optic network backbone. Materials on the city’s website
It’s not that we can’t accomplish what we need to accomplish. But it could be a lot easier, it could be a lot faster, and it could be a lot less frustrating. MONICA INFANTE pitch the network as an economic development tool and say that the city’s policy is to let as many service providers as tap into it as possible. They say it could be used for broadband Internet services, voice or video services, and even medical imaging. Closer to home, Ontario County built an open-access fiber ring that’s administered by a quasi-governmental local development corporation, Axcess Ontario. The network is used primarily by business and government.

But the community broadband concept isn’t without flaws, and in at least one case it’s led to financial problems for a community. Some states have also passed laws prohibiting community owned broadband networks. Elected officials often justify the laws by saying that the networks compete unfairly with private providers. (The Institute for Local Self-Reliance, which generally supports community-owned broadband, says that New York is not a state with legal barriers to the approach.) Other communities have tried to attract large companies, such as Verizon and its FiOS offering, though the company is not presently expanding into new markets. And communities compete for one of Google’s few fiber networks. In 2010, Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks and then-Mayor Bob Duffy partnered in an attempt to get Google to build a fiber optic network in the county. They said that since Rochester has a growing medical, high tech, and higher education economy, the community would be a perfect fit. And they said it would bring jobs to the area. But Rochester and many other communities lost out to Kansas City, where Google has started building its network and connecting it to homes and businesses. The company is now targeting Austin, Texas, and Provo, Utah, for its next markets. Google’s premise is fairly simple. In part, the company clearly wants people to consume its products and services. But it also wants to push other providers to speed up their systems. Building out a fiber network can be expensive, though. Google hasn’t said how much it’s spending to wire Kansas City, but media reports speculate that the initial investment will be approximately $94 million.
Locally, Greenlight Networks has been gradually rolling out a fiber-to-home service. The company is expanding on a neighborhood-by-neighborhood basis, an approach that managing partner Mark Murphy says is based on Google’s approach. Greenlight’s slowest tier offers a download speed of 100 megabits per second, which is twice as fast as Time Warner’s fastest locallyoffered tier, which maxes out at 50 mbps. At a price of $50 a month, Greenlight’s lower tier is also $25 a month cheaper than Time Warner’s fastest offering. Greenlight also offers a one gigabit per second connection for $250 a month. The company taps into existing privatelybuilt and owned fiber systems, and then builds out the network to homes and apartment complexes. Home installation carries a one-time $100 charge. “We really think we’ve figured out a way to provide the service affordably and really provide speeds that are going to allow people to do more,” Murphy says. Between the growth in streaming video, the increasing number of people working from home, and opportunities in health care and software development, Murphy says he sees a demand. The catch is that Greenlight’s product has a very limited availability. The company started with homes in the Village of Pittsford and has since completed fiber installations in the Erie Harbor and Academy building apartment complexes in Rochester. The Penfield-based startup will next connect the 370-house Meadowbrook neighborhood in Brighton, and part of the city’s South Wedge. Monica Infante, a representative of the Meadowbrook Neighborhood Association, says she’s excited to have another option for high-speed Internet.
Infante is a marketing consultant who works from home, and she often works with a network of freelancers. She says it’s incredibly important to have a fast, reliable connection, especially when she’s sending extremely large files back and forth with freelancers and clients. She can do that now, she says, but the network sometimes gets bogged down. “It’s not that we can’t accomplish what we need to accomplish,” Infante says. “But it could be a lot easier, it could be a lot faster, and it could be a lot less frustrating.” Right now, a portion of broadband users are pushing the limits of the existing networks with things like streaming video, says Jim Kane, an engineer who’s the Meadowbrook association’s webmaster. But within a few years, he says, that level of use will be the norm.
But do broadband consumers need the speed
that they think they do? The answer depends on what a person does on the Internet. Someone who primarily checks e-mail and looks at Facebook but doesn’t use Netflix or Hulu needs less speed than someone who watches hours of streaming video or telecommutes. And a household with multiple devices and several Internet users will need higher speeds — a bigger conduit, essentially. “Everybody wants lots and lots of bandwidth,” says Bruce Hartpence, an associate professor at RIT’s B. Thomas Golisano College of Computer and Information Sciences. “Not everybody needs lots and lots of bandwidth.” But Hartpence says that cable broadband shouldn’t be written off, either. Coaxial cable actually has a lot of capacity, he says, and it’s all a matter of how the provider uses it.
Time Warner has tried to free up capacity on its coaxial network. The company recently switched its cable access channels from analog signals to digital signals. Time Warner’s Plucknette-Farmen says that the shift will allow the company to offer more standard- and high-definition digital channels and reliably offer more Internet capacity. Hartpence also says that cable networks may be wary of giving consumers unlimited speeds because it increases the chances of bottlenecks. Instead, providers may try to control their limited capacity so that users have a consistent, and more pleasant, experience, he says. But Google, Greenlight, and other ultra-high-speed Internet providers say that without the bigger data pipes, there’s no way to see what innovations users could come up with. It may be that someone creates a novel video service, or revolutionizes the way health care is delivered. Device-makers, too, would develop new products that seize upon or require faster networks. Those innovations are the undeniable future of the Internet. “I think a few years from now we’ll really see what people can really do with this stuff,” Greenlight’s Murphy says. “That’s where I think it’ll become even more exciting.”

Dining Wines and spirit [ CHOW HOUND ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO
“It’s the unpretentious transmission of genuine excitement that’s crucial.” Janine Wasley has worked in the restaurant industry since she was 14, and when she came across the above sentence some years ago in a wine magazine, it made an indelible impression. Those words now serve as a daily reminder of her approach to service at Wasley’s stylish Brighton restaurant, Avvino, where she and chef Brian Antinore serve up what Wasley describes as “American cuisine with French and Italian influences, using as many local ingredients as possible.” It’s continental comfort food with an upscale twist, presented in surroundings that have been meticulously designed by a woman who understands hospitality. If you’ve done any fine dining in Rochester recently, you’ve no doubt
encountered Wasley, a longtime fixture in the Max restaurant line and most recently a part of Tournedos Steakhouse at the Inn on Broadway. “I decided I’m going to be doing it for the rest of my life,” Wasley says of her decision to open Avvino, a space which shows no evidence of its former incarnation as a day spa thanks to its elegant warm woods, cozy blue banquette seating, one unbelievably flattering mirror, and a tricked-out kitchen that would make both professional and home cooks seethe with envy. That big kitchen ain’t just for show, either. Chef Antinore — he says he’s cooked “every place you can think of,” but most notably the Rio Bamba — and his staff are busy making everything from the plump Parker House rolls that begin your meal, to the focaccia hugging your burger, to the gelato that you probably won’t have room for (but, really, who could say no?).
Avvino’s menu includes raw bar selections; carefully composed salads like a summery blend of heirloom tomatoes, watermelon, arugula, and white balsamic vinaigrette ($10); housemade pastas like the delicious ricotta cavatelli with chunks of veal osso bucco, green olives, and bright preserved lemon ($12/$25); and entrées like the juicy pancetta-wrapped pork tenderloin served with polenta, wilted spinach, and balsamic-glazed peaches ($24). A certified sommelier, Wasley named her restaurant after the Italian word “avvinare,” which involves the practice of priming glassware with a splash of the wine to be enjoyed. So it should come as no shock that the extensive wine list is both carefully curated and globally sourced, with quite a few options available by the glass. (Plans for multi-course wine dinners and focus menus are afoot.) There are craft cocktails, too, ranging from originals such
as the charmingly named Janine’s Juice, with grapefruit vodka, strawberries, St. Germain, and fresh lemon ($10), to a classic Pimm’s Cup, a refreshing libation which nicely embodies Wasley’s vision for Avvino: “Timeless, not trendy. Years from now we’ll still be here.” Avvino is located at 2541 Monroe Ave. It serves Tuesday-Thursday 5-10 p.m.; FridaySaturday 5-11 p.m.; and Sunday 5-10 p.m. (Bar open later.) Food prices range from $7 to $35. For more information, call 2705229 or visit avvinorochester.com.

Mancuso and Gramm were members of the 70’s rock band Black Sheep, but when Gramm moved on to superstardom in Foreigner, Mancuso tested other musical avenues. He studied classical guitar, tinkered with jazz-fusion, and did a bunch of session work. His professionalism and versatility have made him one of the most respected musicians in the business. In 2011, Mancuso released his third solo record, “No Strings Attached,” a collection of all original instrumentals that acts as a solid career retrospective. — BY DAVID YOCKEL, JR.

[REVIEW] BY DAVID YOCKEL, JR.
Saturday night at the Bug Jar was a local music showcase, with five solid Rochesterbased acts on the bill. The underground hip-hop outfit Tugboat was first up, and entertained with an — at times comical — yet impressive display of smooth rhymes, provocative samples, and engaging beats.
People Can Be More Awesome
followed with what was apparently the group’s second-ever live performance. The six piece powered through a short set of synth-laden, ride-heavy rock that would probably fall somewhere between emo and post-hardcore. Despite PCBMA’s lack of stage experience, it acquitted itself pretty damn well. Fowls produced about a half hour of reverb-soaked, calypso-esque indie rock, which at times sounded very akin to Vampire Weekend. The two vocalist/ guitarists traded math-rock riffs and control of the microphone, but when it clicked on the distortion, and dropped into heavier chord progressions, the songs seemed to have a little more meat. Headliners Joywave had heads nodding from note one, and it was easy to see why
these guys have a nice little following. The group’s extremely danceable electronica roots were on display, as was its knack for throwing down some seriously catchy hooks. Daniel Armbruster’s breezy falsetto was the perfect accoutrement, as he willfully whispered some beautiful melodies on top of the sample-driven beats and reserved, but responsible, guitars. All in all, a very alluring performance. But the highlight of the night was definitely the 20-minute explosion authored by The Branch Davidians. The four-piece took the stage rather unadorned: keyboard, no-frills drum kit, some digital toys, guitar, one loud amp, and a plan. The set raged with the sludgy gorgeousness reminiscent of early British shoegaze, but the driving, minimalist rhythms anchored some of the more “outthere” moments. Set closer “Blessed Water” was an exercise in how transcendent noise can be when there’s a concept behind it. Not sure what that concept was, but, well, the meditative waves of dissonance washed over me, and I was clean.

ANTI-FOLK | BILLY MACK COLLECTOR
Singer-songwriter Billy Mack Collector claims that he writes “happy songs about being uncomfortable,” and his off-beat, anti-folk tunes certainly fit that description. Popular anti-folk artists such as Kimya Dawson, Regina Spektor, and Paul Baribeau led a rebellion against traditional folk music years ago, oftentimes accomplishing this feat by combining the genre with others (most notably punk), leading to an amalgamation of styles that felt entirely new. Like the aforementioned artists, Billy’s music is self-effacing, unpretentious, and hard to define. Billy’s songs are acoustic and bare, and often feel not quite put-together; this avoidance of perfection is both charming and welcoming.

Rochester Puerto Rican Festival 2013. Frontier Field, 1 Morrie
Brian Wheat creates a distinctive brand of alternative folk that’s been affectionately referred to as “porch-swing rock.” Since 2005, this Buffalo-born troubadour has toured the world playing everywhere from clubs and festivals to hostels and island villages. Wheat has cultivated a comprehensive sound, influenced by 50’s pop, classic rock, and country. His ardent melodic approach and affecting lyrical prowess has led to an impressive musical catalog, and a résumé that includes work with such internationally known acts as Band of Horses and Mark Kozelek. Hey Mavis fills out the bill.

CLASSICAL | GATEWAYS MUSIC FESTIVAL
Pianist and music educator Armenta Adams Hummings founded the Gateways Music Festival in 1993 to give performance and networking opportunities to students and professional musicians of African descent. Gateways’ home every other year since 1995 has been Rochester; the Eastman School of Music hosts the festival’s final concert, and throughout the course of the event about 85 fine young musicians take part in chamber-music concerts and recitals all across town — see the Gateway Festival website for times and places. They’ll join together for an orchestral concert on Sunday, August 18, in Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre. At that show Gateways Festival music director, the distinguished conductor Michael Morgan, will lead the musicians through Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 and William Levi Dawson’s Negro Folk Symphony, a rediscovery from the “Great American Symphony” years of the 1930’s, this time by a black composer. Gateways Music Festival takes place Thursday, August 15, through Sunday, August 18, at various locations in downtown Rochester.

Art Take the streets “State of the City: Street-ish” THROUGH SEPTEMBER 28 “SUN BOXES” A SOLAR-POWERED SOUND INSTALLATION: SEPTEMBER 26-28 ROCHESTER CONTEMPORARY ART CENTER, 137 EAST AVE. 461-2222, ROCHESTERCONTEMPORARY.ORG WEDNESDAY-SUNDAY 1-5 P.M., FRIDAY 1-10 P.M. | $1, FREE TO MEMBERS [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
Four young artists are the stars of “Streetish,” a show of contemporary work that is informed by street art and culture, though was created within a studio practice. Now in its sixth season, this edition of Rochester Contemporary’s “State of the City” exhibition series was co-curated by RoCo’s Executive Director, Bleu Cease, and Memorial Art Gallery’s Director of Exhibitions, Marie Via. The smart show contains two artists who reference street art, among other aesthetics, in their two- and three-dimensional work, an artist whose strange public performances frolic playfully between the mythic and the poignant, and a sound artist who uses simple, solar-powered technological devices to create sonic public art that gently leads our focus back to our ultimate reliance upon our star. Visible from the street through center’s big front windows is an enormous silver and neonorange mass, suspended from the ceiling of the space. The work, “Cheesedoodle Headdress,” is a recent piece created by New York-based performance artist Irvin Climaco Morazan that, when adorning the artist, resembles the head of an insect (as seen in a displayed
image). Actual Cheese Doodles fill big plastic containers that stand in for eyes, and the rest of the construction is a monstrous pile of silverpainted foam and other materials. Looping nearby is a documentation of “Performance at the Center of the World,” in which Morazan, in a brightly colored outfit and a boombox-headdress, and with part of a gold-chrome wolf attached to his chest, leads a land-yacht of a low-rider by golden chain to the center of a gathering crowd in Times Square. In a feat of anthropomorphic antics, the car’s hydraulics cock it into a spectating stance, and the artist strikes a similarly princely pose in front of it. The continuous roars emitting from the headdress and the chain-leash lend the illusion that the car is a beastly pet to Morazan. Suddenly a musical beat begins, and the artist oscillates between watching and directing (with a gilded bone for a baton) the movements of a small group of B-Boys while the crowd cheers them on. “It’s a pseudo-religious performance art that he does,” says Cease. “It’s animistic, and he’s sort of acting as a shaman would.” Morazan’s get-up is kitschy, and the masks and other pseudo-sacred trappings reminded me somewhat of the Hopi’s Kachina ceremonies, during which everyday members of the community are transformed into gods with a little at-hand material and a whole lot of presentation. But Morazan’s performance isn’t a spoof on religion, says Cease. “It’s not a spoof on a type of practice, it’s really just an observation in a way, but using what he has available to him, which is break dancers and low-riders.” Cease is a fan of the “Hard Edged Paintings”
series by Beacon, New York-based Karlos

Cárcamo, six of which are included in this show. Both high and low art cultures are referenced in these works. “He sort of looks at old street writers from the 70’s, recreates their tag, and then paints over them like Ellsworth Kelly, or Mondrian,” says Cease. The works are a slightly jarring mash-up of sandy-textured black spray paint on gray, partially hidden by sharply defined, overlapping blocks of color. Cease says the young artist has a background in breakdancing and was involved in street art, but has developed a dedicated studio practice that pulls his former modes of expression into his current works. This is evident in his paintings as well as his collages (two are included in the show, which combine imagery of works by 20th century artists with elements of street art and culture), and his sculptures, which transform simple objects such as chunky shoe laces or microphone stands into three-dimensional gestural studies, coaxing out of their forms slick allusions to the serpentine flow of break dancers, or even the spraying of a swirling tag upon a wall. Rochester-based painter Kurt Ketchum created a new series of works for this exhibition,
each an abstract work on large, uniformly sized, boxed-out wood panels. Ketchum’s work at once alludes to street art, abstract expressionism, and graphic design. Where in the past shapes and textual elements of his paintings became almost figurative and symbolic, the artist seems to be shifting more toward purely gestural and textural experiments. Ketchum is always shifting and struggling in his practice, and unlike many artists, he is comfortable being upfront about this process, says Cease. The paintings are installed like a progression from the front of the gallery to the back: “If this is the Kurt Ketchum you know, that down there is sort of where he sees himself going,” says Cease. There is a definite lightening up, loosening up, less dense, less graphic quality apparent as my eyes move down the wall. “At least at this point, that’s where he sees himself going,” says Cease. The result is quietly lovely, a textured resting ground for the eyes, almost empty of representation, except where the subtle allusion to time’s passage is indicated by layers upon layers of mark-making and wear that the artist has built upon the surface.

Colorusso’s “Sun Boxes” installation, which will be installed in the small park adjacent to Rochester Contemporary during the First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival this fall, is represented only with a surrogate sampling of his solar-powered speaker devices, arranged on the floor at the rear of the gallery. Also present are images of outdoor installations of this sort, and a speaker emitting a sample of what the installation sounds like when activated. Nearby in the round room, visitors can watch a short documentary video in which the artist, who has a background in the experimental noise-rock realm, describes the work and his poetic ideas behind it. The piece is “an actual manifestation of a thought process I’ve come up with that has to do with how I see the world, how the world could be,” says Colorusso in the video, which shows people reacting to the installation on beaches and in fields, some deeply relaxing or meditating, others apparently spiritually moved by the ambient, spacey, shimmering, looped waves of a B-flat chord emanating around them. In each installation, 20 speaker boxes operate independently, powered by solar panels. To experience the work, visit the “Sun Boxes” sound field next to Rochester Contemporary September 26-28, from noon to sundown.

COMEDY | DREW CAREY
Drew Carey’s career in comedy has ranged from his anti-hero character in the popular “Drew Carey Show,” opposite the grinningly evil boss played by Craig Ferguson, to his appearance in “Fuck: A Documentary,” to hosting the American version of the hilarious improv show, “Whose Line is it Anyway?” and more recently, as host of the popular game show, “The Price is Right.” I like him for his sarcasm and his dramatic silent smirk that perfectly conveys exactly what kind of shade he’s slinging at a subject. He’s also written an autobiographical book, “Dirty Jokes and Beer: Stories of the Unrefined,” which details his early life and television career. You can catch Carey’s brand of stand up at the Comedy Club (2235 Empire Blvd., Webster) for two performances only, on Friday, August 16, and Saturday, August 17, at 10 p.m. Tickets are $45 and advance reservations are required.

SPECIAL EVENT | BEARD & MOUSTACHE CHAMPIONSHIPS
While scanning social-media outlets the other day, I came across a headline that seemed like it might have been posted by The Onion, but it wasn’t. The article described how the profits of America’s razor industry are falling, and that the hipster beard epidemic is being blamed for blunting the biz. This isn’t really, truly new — check out dadsaretheoriginalhipster.tumblr.com to catch a look at the first round of babes to buck the clean-shaven policy of their youths, and to see from where many of today’s young men are snagging their style.

TICKETS on SALE NOW!
The trend may or may not last, but while the face-blade industry quakes, formerly chiseled jaws continue to spurn shaving in favor of fur, and lads and ladies alike have been swooning over the manly look. If you like your menfolk fuzzy, head over to Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St.) on Saturday, August 17, 6:30 p.m. for the Northeast Regional Beard & Moustache Championships. That’s right, dudes, your face weeds and follicles are about to be judged. The Rochester Beardsmen Society (yep!) travels the United States attending beard and moustache competitions, and will now hold their own, aimed to benefit the Villa of Hope as well as the family of a society member who died suddenly.
WANT TO WRITE
Organizers invite competitors in all levels of hairy devotion to be evaluated in one of 17 categories to suit many beard and moustache styles. Ladies shall not be left out nor cast aside! Women are encouraged to compete in fake beard and moustache categories with handcrafted hair. So this may be the only time I’ll get to utter this phrase, but come and admire my glorious beard, y’all.
CITY is looking for freelance writers to cover a wide variety of topics.
General admission to the event is $15 presale or $20 dayof, and $20-$45 for competitors (basic, special, or VIP — competitor check in is 3-5 p.m.). A pre-party with 40 Rod Lightning and Huskey Burnette will take place on Friday, August 16, at Abilene Bar & Lounge (153 Liberty Pole Way). The event starts at 6 p.m. and admission is free with proof of ticket purchased for Saturday’s event. Otherwise, admission is $10 for ages 18+ and $8 for ages 21+.

THEATER | “ALMOST, MAINE”
THEATER | GIVE TO LIVE
Though central in our focus as social creatures, love and attraction are no different from any other element of human life — their appearances and departures are almost impossible to predict and are ever shifting, contingent upon many complicated matters. “Almost, Maine” is a romantic-comedy by John Cariani, built of nine short plays that explore love and loss on a moonless, winter night, in a remote, mythical almost-town called Almost, Maine. Under the gently shifting Northern Lights and unknowable stars above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and humorous ways.
Thirty years after the initial cases of the AIDS virus were discovered, humanity is still fighting the disease and searching for a cure. As with many devastating diseases, AIDS sufferers are largely out-of-sight, out-of-mind, with very few exceptions. On Saturday, August 17, an all-star cast will share their love of theater and their many talents in an effort to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and Trillium Health (formerly AIDSCare).
Black Sheep Theatre Coalition’s production kicked off in early August. Remaining performances will take place at Black Sheep Theatre (274 N. Goodman Street, Village Gate Square, Suite D313, entrance B), on Friday and Saturday, August 16-17, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $16 in advance or $20 at the door.

After the success of his highly unusual 2009 science-fiction film, “District 9,” Neill Blomkamp now moves into the big time, Hollywood version, with another excursion into the genre, “Elysium.” Instead of a cast of relatively unknown players, the director this time benefits from the luster and the talents of a couple of big stars — Matt Damon and Jodie Foster — and a couple of well-known supporting actors — William Fichtner and Alice

form of machines that cure any illness, repair any injuries. Jodie Foster plays Delacourt, an icy, haughty secretary of defense who orders the destruction of any illegal rocket ships attempting to enter the idyllic world and speaks of deportation and homeland security as sharply and glibly as any drooling right-wing politician. Back on Earth, a planet devastated by pollution, where Los Angeles looks like the slums of Calcutta, the healthcare system consists of crowded, squalid emergency rooms, and robot policemen brutalize the populace. An ex-con named Max (Matt Damon) toils in the Armadyne factory, which provides defense systems for Elysium. Damon suffers a lethal dose of radiation and, desperate for healing, agrees to work for a criminal named Spider (Wagner Moura) in a scheme to steal data stored in the brain of Armadyne’s owner, John Carlyle (William Fichtner). They plan to foil Elysium’s defenses and take over the satellite and especially its special healing units. That situation works well enough, but the director throws in all sorts of other plots, including Delacourt’s own attempt to orchestrate a coup on Elysium so she can rule the planet, the murderous work of Kruger (Sharlto Copley), one of her undercover agents on Earth, a mushy love story involving Max and Frey (Sonia Braga), childhood sweethearts who meet again, and the need to cure Frey’s daughter of leukemia.

Braga. More important, the picture displays the characteristic look of contemporary American film, all the polish, magic, and energy and the sort of special effects that, for good or for bad, dominate the typical industry product today. “Elysium” quite obviously depends upon some major traditions in the long history of science-fiction cinema, reaching in fact all the way back to its major source of inspiration, Fritz Lang’s brilliant silent, “Metropolis.” Like that picture, it posits a future society, in this case in 2154, ruled by a wealthy elite who dwell in a paradise, while the rest of the population struggles in poverty and misery. Also like that picture, it attempts something like an allegorical representation of its cultural context. The Elysium of the title, named for the abode of the blessed, the playground of the gods in Greek mythology, is a huge artificial satellite that constitutes its own world, a dream place of gleaming white houses inhabited by gleaming white people, swimming pools, tennis courts, and universal healthcare in the

Into the mind of murder ‘The Act of Killing’ (NR), DIRECTED BY JOSHUA OPPENHEIMER | SCREENS FRIDAY AND SUNDAY AT THE DRYDEN [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
machinations and stratagems, the script fails to exploit its fascinating situation and premises, devolving instead into sheer plot, enlivened by repeated shootouts, chases, hand-to-hand combat, and the familiar paraphernalia of the contemporary Hollywood blockbuster, the same old same old. Although he performs creditably, Matt Damon fails to strike any sparks or generate any chemistry in his essentially juvenile relationship with the blandly pretty Braga. Looking tense and mean, Jodie Foster, who has made some odd acting choices lately, performs competently if not spectacularly as the villainous Delacourt. The supporting players seem more interesting, especially the real surprise of the movie, Sharlto Copley, the geeky, pathetic protagonist of “District 9,” who takes on an entirely different character, the gleefully vicious Kruger, with a sadistic gusto. The movie constructs an obvious parallel to some distressing contemporary realities, with numerous references and comparisons to the America of today, including illegal immigration, the alarming gap between the rich and the poor, the disdain of the vulture capitalists for everybody else, the disheartening state of the healthcare system — in other words, the way we live now. Its recognizable context and its generally imaginative exploitation of a familiar post-apocalyptic society provide its greatest strengths; unfortunately the film’s transition from some fascinatingly creative material to all the tired devices of the contemporary blockbuster muddies its ideas and blurs its vision.
Straddling the line between documentary and narrative, exploitation and exposé, the haunting “The Act of Killing” sees filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer ask the leaders of the notorious Indonesian death squads, responsible for the mass murder of more than 1 million civilians in 1965-66, to recount their most brutal crimes, then allow them the opportunity to re-enact the acts through the lens of the Hollywood films that inspired them. The result is a thought-provoking, disquieting, and deeply disturbing film experiment that I feel I’m only beginning to process. I admit that while I’m writing this review now, I’ll likely still be sifting through the myriad connotations of this densely layered film for weeks to come. “The Act of Killing” begins with a brief bit of expository text filling in the necessary background: in 1965, a coup was staged to overthrow the government of Indonesia, creating a military dictatorship. Any persons opposing the dictatorship were accused of being a communist, and immediately put to death. The armies

created paramilitaries, run by local gangsters, to carry out these killings. These groups remain in power to this day. Aside from this brief summary, the film avoids delving too deeply into the history, choosing instead to act as meditation on (as the title states) the act of killing, how such atrocities could be committed, and how the perpetrators of these deeds live with themselves afterward. Oppenheimer, along with codirector Christine Cynn, interacts with dozens of the men who participated in the genocide, but the main subjects are Anwar Congo and Herman Kato. Congo was an executioner who alone killed nearly 1,000 people, mostly by strangling them with wire (he explains early on that he chose this method after beating his victims to death proved to make too much of a mess), while Kato acted as the leader of a paramilitary group which still holds power today. Seemingly delighted to be sharing their violent legacy, Congo and Kato call upon their knowledge of Hollywood Westerns, noir gangster films, and musicals, slipping easily into the archetypes that proved so influential to them as young men. In their minds, they’re simply recounting the zany misadventures they got up to in their youth. Reality and fiction blur as the cameras observe Congo and Kato cast and rehearse their film, employing the aid of old friends and villagers whose relatives were likely the very ones whose deaths are being recreated in front of them. What’s perhaps most shocking is the way these men appear to have no remorse, largely because they are still revered as heroes in their country. As one notes, “History is written by the winners. And we are the winners.” They talk freely, often boastfully, of the countless horrific acts they committed: at one point a paramilitary goon reminisces about raping 14-year-old girls in the process of wiping out entire villages. An appallingly clear conscience

seems to be a characteristic shared by most of the men. But Congo offhandedly admits that he is haunted by nightmares when he goes to sleep each night. Executive produced by documentaryfilm legends Errol Morris and Werner Herzog, “The Act of Killing” has stirred up a fair amount of controversy since it premiered, as critics questioned the morality of the film and its directors. After all, it allows murderers to quite literally glorify the horrific violence they committed. But throughout the film, we see only bits and pieces of the film within a film that’s being creating. The scenes seem to grow increasingly hallucinatory and hellish as Congo attempts to translate his nightmares to film, staging impressionistic scenes of decapitation and stylized bloodshed. It all builds to a scene in which Congo plays one of his own victims, and it’s apparently too much for him to bear. It’s in this section that Oppenheimer’s intentions become most apparent. Speaking one-on-one to the director later on, Congo explains that in those moments, he was overwhelmed because he felt what his victims felt. Of course, Oppenheimer points out, Congo is acting for a film. His victims were not pretending; they were truly facing the realization that they were about to die. Though Congo and Kato are in charge of the film they’re creating, Oppenheimer is a skilled enough director to make sure that they never seize control of the narrative of the film he’s set out to make. And he clearly has a purpose: it’s telling that the local crew members who worked on “The Act of Killing” chose to help the director, but are credited anonymously, worried about any potential repercussions they might face after the film’s release. Raising just as many questions as it seeks to answer, Oppenheimer’s film is uncomfortable to watch, but not easily dismissed, or forgotten.

The film’s subjects are Indonesian death squad members who openly admit to murdering thousands of dissenters in the 1960s. Yet, instead of only being interviewed, the men reenact their crimes as mini-movies inspired by the Hollywood films they loved. Unnerving and unforgettable in its examination of the mindset that can lead to mass murder. (Joshua Oppenheimer, Denmark/Norway/UK 2012, 115 min., 35mm, Indonesian and English w/ subtitles, DCP)
Tracy Turnblad (Ricki Lake) is a self-professed “pleasantly plump” high-schooler who wins a spot on a local (and segregated) television dance show, infuriating rich rival Amber von Tussle.

In the heart of downtown, just a block from the Eastman Theatre in the urbane Grove Place neighborhood, is 56 Windsor Street, an enticing melange of old and new. While the exterior retains its century old countenance (the house was constructed around 1900), the interior is a complete redo. In the spirit of the compact development pattern that should typify downtowns, new condo units have actually been attached to the rear of 56 Windsor to create an eclectic, high-density urban residential enclave. Yet you will not suffer for space in the 2,640 square-foot house. Beyond the front door is a bright living room with huge windows that go right to the floor; the room features an original fireplace and the original curving staircase. Beyond is another ample room, with more such windows, and a clever new fireplace that serves it and the kitchen on the other side of the wall. Off this room, which could function nicely as a dining room, is a smaller room that would make a cozy office space. Further back is a vast new kitchen, replete with handsome dark cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops, a large “conversation island,” and gleaming new hardwood floors. A surprisingly spacious pantry and a half-bath adjoin the kitchen. The plushly carpeted upstairs offers two suite-like sets of rooms—it could function as a two or three bedroom space. The master suite
set includes an ample bedroom, bathroom with two sinks and an enormous stall shower, and a walk-in closet that you could probably run in. The smaller set of rooms also includes a full bath with a clawfoot tub and copious closet space. A stacked washer/dryer is also upstairs—no running up and down to the basement! Now get this: a sizable new space with sloped ceiling has been built on the back of the house. It is currently unfinished but large and vaulted enough to create a really neat loft-style bedroom, den or additional living room, or home office. The place also features a small porch and a tidy brick patio—superb places to enjoy Rochester’s enviable warm-month weather and mingle with your downtown neighbors! The property also qualifies for the County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency’s “10%” tax program. The first year, the owner enjoys a 90% tax break; the second year 80%; the third year 70%, and so on. So not only can you enjoy a rare single family dwelling right downtown, you can enjoy ten years there, experiencing the continued renaissance inside the Loop, without having to pay full taxes. Asking price for 56 Windsor is $299,900. For a tour, contact Nothnagle agent Susan Holmes at 585-305-1011.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
-- To commemorate its 500th “deep brain stimulation” surgery in May, UCLA Medical Center live-Tweeted its operation on musician Brad Carter, 39, during which he was required to strum his guitar and sing so that surgeons would know where in his brain to plant the electrical stimulator that would relieve his Parkinson’s disease symptoms. Carter had developed hand tremors in 2006, but the stimulator, once it is properly programed and the surgery healed, is expected to reduce his symptoms, restore some guitar-playing ability, and reduce his medication need. (And, yes, patients normally remain conscious during the surgery.) -- Firefighters are not infrequently called on to extricate adventurous men from sex toys, but one “armor-plat(ed)” device, six inches in diameter, into which the 51-year-old German entrapped himself in July in Ibiza, Mallorca, was especially challenging, according to the Diario de Mallorca newspaper, and took two hours and a dose of anesthesia toward the end. The saw blade the emergency workers used wore out during the rescue and had to be replaced, along with two sets of batteries. The man was kept overnight at Can Misses hospital, but was otherwise OK. -- Americans stage dog shows, and Middle-Easterners stage camel beauty contests, and in June, the annual German Holstein Show took over the city of Oldenburg, with the two-day
event won by “Loh Nastygirl,” topping bovine beauties from Germany, Luxembourg and Austria. The event is also a showcase for the cow hairdressers, who trim cows’ leg and belly hair (to better display their veins). Said one dresser, “It is just like with us people -- primping helps.” Groomed or not, cows with powerful legs, bulging udders and a strong bone structure are the favorites. -- Fruit of any kind retails for outlandish prices in Japan, but some, such as Yubari cantaloupes, are so prestigious that they are often presented as gifts to friends or colleagues, and it was only mildly surprising that a pair of the melons sold in May for the equivalent of about $15,700 at auction at the Sapporo Central Wholesale Market. The melons appeared to be perfect specimens, with their T-shaped stalk still attached. The record melon-pair price, set in 2008, is about $24,500 measured at today’s exchange rate. -- Still Unclear on the Concept: Briar MacLean, 13, of Calgary, Alberta, was reprimanded by school officials in May (and then also lost an appeal) after he stepped between two students because one, holding a knife, was bullying the other. The vice principal appeared to regard Briar’s action as equal to that of the bully, telling Briar’s mother later that the school does not “condone heroics,” and that it was “beside the point” that Briar might well have prevented a slashing (which could have occurred if he had left the boys behind to go find a teacher).
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 34 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Work at making new friends and developing relationships that are built on common interests. Finding out more about someone you are attracted to before you make your move will ensure that you don’t waste your time pursuing the wrong person. Good things come to those who wait. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): An attraction to a co-worker can lead to a fast-paced relationship, but you should look outside your job to avoid gossip or loss of reputation. Finding love while offering help to an organization you believe in will bring far better results in the romance department.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your diverse interests will bring you in contact with someone unique. The more mysterious the person you encounter, the more intrigued you will become. Your wit, charm and playful attitude will be matched in every way, leaving you coming back for more. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You are likely to meet someone under unusual circumstances or in a setting much different from most you frequent. Expressing your feelings and your desire for commitment must be done with finesse and plans that will back what you are suggesting. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t be fooled by appearances.
You may think you have found the perfect match, but secrets are being kept from you regarding position, status and what’s actually being offered. Slow down and let whoever you fancy fill in the blanks regarding background as well as personal intentions. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ve got plenty to offer and shouldn’t be reluctant to discuss who you are and what you are looking for with anyone you come across that piques your interest. Explore, experiment, and enjoy interacting with potential partners who happen to be traveling in the same direction as you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll attract a lot of attention, but not everyone showing interest will be good for you. Avoid anyone who is too quick to brag or too carefree with spending. You need stability in your life, not someone who lacks practicality. Opt for security over adventure. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Travel or any setting that offers a change of scenery or knowledge, experience and information will lead to interest in someone who happens to be looking for the same thing you are. Engage in communication, but don’t give away your secrets. Gravitate toward the most unusual person.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Share your thoughts, interests and desires with someone who captures your eye. You are ready for a change, and discovering someone who compliments you will lead to a close bond. Before making a commitment, be sure you are ready to take the plunge. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Attend a special event and you’ll be drawn to someone who shares your ideas and concerns. An emotional conversation will lead to a physical connection that takes you by surprise. Let your heart lead the way and your intuition guide you to a decision that will alter your life.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll have to step back into your past before you can move into the future emotionally. Revisit someone you can’t stop thinking about to see if the magic still exists so you can make a decision to reconnect or to let go. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Romance is on the rise. No matter what you do or where you go, you will attract someone special. Travel, socialize or get involved in unusual or creative events or activities, and you will end up discussing life, love and making plans with an intriguing individual.
