AWS Step Functions Gains Callback Patterns to Resume Paused Workflows

first_imgImage: Wait for callback with task token example workflow (via Step Functions documentation)A complete task definition using the Amazon SQS service integration might look as follows:”Send message to SQS”:{ “Type”:”Task”, “Resource”:”arn:aws:states:::sqs:sendMessage.waitForTaskToken”, “Parameters”:{ “QueueUrl”:”https://sqs.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/123456789012/myQueue”, “MessageBody”:{ “Message”:”Hello from Step Functions!”, “TaskToken.$”:”$$.Task.Token” } }, “Next”:”NEXT_STATE”}The .WaitForTaskToken suffix selects the callback pattern, and the $$.Task.Token reference injects the value of the task token from the context object during workflow execution. A consumer of the resulting SQS message can then resume the paused workflow and report the outcome of an external process via the SendTaskSuccess or SendTaskFailure API actions. Because “a task that is waiting for a task token will wait until the execution reaches the one year service limit”, AWS recommends to configure a heartbeat timeout. The heartbeat timeout clock can then be reset via the SendTaskHeartbeat API action to report that “the task represented by the specified taskToken is still making progress”.AWS Serverless Hero Ben Kehoe has just covered a common use case with a blog post on using callback URLs for approval emails with AWS Step Functions. His sfn-callback-urls solution is implemented as a serverless application and published to the Serverless Application Repository (previous coverage). It allows to “generate one-time-use callback URLs” and is exemplified with a workflow that “sends an email containing approve/reject links, and later a confirmation email”. Kehoe emphasizes that it is easy to “expand this state machine for your use cases”, and that this workflow pattern can also be “used as part of a larger state machine”.Netflix has built the conceptually similar JSON DSL based open-source workflow orchestration engine Conductor, which features a wait task that can be updated via HTTP to implement callbacks from external triggers. Microsoft Azure provides an HTTP webhook action to allow pausing and resuming an app via its Logic Apps workflow orchestration service.In related news, AWS Step Functions has recently added support for nested workflows, added access to workflow metadata, and now also supports workflow execution events via CloudWatch Events respectively Amazon EventBridge (previous coverage), which eases building auxiliary serverless workflows by monitoring state machine events like start, success, or failure. Earlier this year, AWS Step Functions Local has been made available as an executable JAR package and Docker image to enable implementing and testing of state machines in development and build environments.The AWS Step Functions documentation features a developer guide, including a section on service integration patterns, the Amazon States Language, and the API reference. The AWS CLI Step Functions commands and the Amazon States Language specification are documented separately. Support is provided via the AWS Step Functions forum. Callback patterns are available at no additional charge beyond the regular usage-based AWS Step Functions pricing. Amazon Web Services (AWS) recently announced that AWS Step Functions supports callback patterns to “automate workflows for applications with human activities and custom integrations with third-party services”. Workflow executions can now be paused until applications return a token via the Step Functions API, which obsoletes the previously required polling or other workarounds.AWS Step Functions enables application developers to “coordinate multiple AWS services into serverless workflows” (previous coverage). Step Functions workflows are defined in the JSON-based Amazon States Language, which allows to maintain state machines via configuration as code, yet also to visualize state machine diagrams so that they are “easy to understand, easy to explain to others, and easy to change”. Workflows are composed of states and tasks, which initially allowed to use AWS Lambda functions and (potentially long-running) activities for the actual work, and since late 2018 also supports several other service integrations like DynamoDB, ECS, SNS, and SQS (previous coverage).To enable the pausing of workflow executions until an external activity has been completed, Step Functions has so far required to poll the Step Functions API via activity workers. However, besides requiring upfront registration of the activity, and extra care to avoid latency when polling for activity tasks, implementing serverless approval steps also required to work around the polling architecture with a scheduled Lambda function.AWS has now added a dedicated wait for a callback with a task token service integration pattern that complements the default request response and wait for a job to complete patterns to enable purely event-driven serverless workflows with manual steps and third-party integrations. The provided example workflow covers a scenario that needs to “integrate with an external microservice to perform a credit check as a part of an approval workflow”:last_img read more

Mallott Raises Most Funds But Parnell Maintains Biggest Bank Account

first_imgDownload AudioDemocratic candidate for governor Byron Mallott was the top fundraiser this reporting period, but Republican incumbent Sean Parnell maintains the most money going into the general election.Mallott has raised $297,000 since February, with $55,000 coming from the Alaska Democratic Party and another $50,000 coming from his own pocket. Parnell hauled in $286,000 in that same period, including a $100,000 contribution from the Alaska Republican Party. Independent candidate Bill Walker raised $259,000, with $170,000 of that self-financed.While Mallott brought in the most money, he also spent the most. His campaign used $277,000 since November, and is left with just $55,000 in the black. The Parnell campaign has $447,000 going into November, while Walker has $116,000 left to spend between now and the general. Mallott’s biggest single expense was a polling contract with the Mellman Group, a D.C.-based political consulting firm. Much of his campaign income has gone to staffing and office expenses, and little has gone toward advertising. The Mallott campaign put $7,000 toward signs and $545 on Facebook advertisements. The campaign issued a press release attributing the amount of cash on hand primarily to travel, but just 6 percent of expenditures went toward airfare, hotel, or car rental.The Walker campaign spent slightly less than Mallott, using up $268,000 of their funds. Walker has put the bulk of his money toward advertising, spending $44,000 on TV ads on KTUU Channel 2 in Anchorage and another $15,000 in the Fairbanks and Juneau television markets. His campaign has also spent nearly $30,000 on campaign signs and $23,000 on Facebook advertising.The Parnell campaign used up just $170,000 of its war chest, dividing up its expenses between staffing, polling, and social media advertising.The other candidates in the governor’s race – Republican challenger and Tea Party activist Russ Millette, Republican Gerald Heikes, Constitution Party candidate J.R. Myers, Libertarian Care Clift, and Democrat Phil Stoddard – raised $15,000 combined.Both Parnell and Mallott may see a slight – even substantial – financial boost once the lieutenant governor nominees are selected in the party primary.Republican lieutenant governor candidate and Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan has $15,000 going into the primary. He faces a nominal challenge from Kenai Republican Kelly Wolf, who has raised $50. Once the Republican nominee is selected, his funds are effectively merged with the gubernatorial candidate.In the Democratic primary race for lieutenant governor, State Sen. Hollis French has raised $62,000 and Mat-Su teacher and political newcomer Bob Williams has brought in $30,000 since February. Williams has spent most of his funds, while French has held onto the bulk of his money. French has $69,000 still left on hand, exceeding the amount held in Mallott’s account.last_img read more

Southern Baptist seminary denies request for reparations

first_img Share This! Share This! Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,(RNS) — Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, which released a report last year about its connections to slavery, has denied a request from an interracial ministers coalition to financially support a nearby black college as a form of reparations.EmpowerWest, a coalition of black and white pastors in Louisville, Ky., where the seminary is located, recently contacted school officials with their request.The group suggested Southern Seminary could donate millions to a local Christian college whose students are predominantly African American.In a May 31 letter of response, the president and board chair of the Southern Baptist Convention’s flagship seminary said they would not transfer funds to another institution.“We agree with the policy of the Southern Baptist Convention in this regard, and we do not believe that financial reparations are the appropriate response,” wrote President R. Albert Mohler Jr. and board Chair F. Matthew Schmucker.RELATED: Southern Baptist seminary report ties founders to slaveholding, white supremacyThe seminary released a 71-page report in December that said its early trustees and faculty “defended the righteousness of slaveholding” and espoused white supremacy. Founders of the seminary, which opened in 1859, owned more than 50 slaves.The Rev. Joe Phelps. Courtesy photo“Since the seminary has done a wonderful job of acknowledging what it did, it’s now time to ask ‘What are you going to do about it?’” said the Rev. Joe Phelps, co-chair of EmpowerWest, which seeks to increase economic opportunities in predominantly black West Louisville.Phelps, a 1978 graduate of the seminary and a white Louisville minister, and the Rev. Kevin W. Cosby, a black Louisville pastor and president of Simmons College of Kentucky, were the lead signers of a petition to the seminary “to make an act of repentance and repair to descendants of American slavery for its leading role in crafting a moral and biblical defense of slavery.”Among their recommendations was that the seminary give Simmons College a “biblical tithe,” or 10 percent, of its endowment, which they said is about $100 million.An Association of Theological Schools report about Southern Seminary showed the school had an endowment of $90 million in 2017.R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky. RNS photo by Adelle M. Banks“We’re not going to respond to public demands for reparations made, quite interestingly, by the people who demand that the reparations be paid to them,” Mohler told Religion News Service. “And, furthermore whatever we do, this institution will do in keeping with its theological commitments.”Simmons College has partnered with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, a group that split from the Southern Baptist Convention in the 1990s over differences about biblical interpretation and women’s ordination, which the SBC does not support.Mohler said his seminary began to address its past long before the report was issued.“For decades the seminary has had rather ambitious efforts to serve African American churches and to educate African American students,” he said.The seminary had 228 blacks enrolled, comprising 4.26 percent of the total student body of 5,354, in its 2017-18 academic year.

Port Of Houston Back In Business After Harvey Cleaning Up Ship Channel

first_img X 00:00 /00:57 Share Listencenter_img Gail Delaughter | Houston Public MediaPort of Houston Chairman Janiece Longoria chats with Jim Teague, CEO of Enterprise Products Partners at Greater Houston Partnership’s State of the Port address on November 16th, 2017. To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Port of Houston Chairman Janiece Longoria said on Thursday that they were back in business about a week after Hurricane Harvey, but the challenge now is dredging all the silt that collected in the Houston Ship Channel. She said that dredging is crucial to maritime safety.Speaking before the Greater Houston Partnership in its annual State of the Port address, Longoria told a packed house that they’re still dealing with what the floods left behind.  She said that silt makes it harder for ships to navigate because they don’t have the proper depth.“When vessels are not able to load fully, that causes increased costs within the supply chain that is ultimately borne by the consumer,” explained Longoria.And port officials are hoping that gets the attention of members of Congress. Longoria says they’re now seeking funds for preventative dredging, to prepare the Ship Channel for the next big storm.“The Ship Channel was closed only five days after Harvey,” added Longoria. “In that very brief time, we had jet fuel shortages. We had gasoline shortages.”Longoria said they need about $50 to $60 million a year to maintain the port’s channels. But they only get about $30 million from the federal government. And she pointed out that shippers are already paying a tax to fund dredging.Despite those challenges, Longoria says business at the port remains strong. She says they’re now handling about 70% of the Gulf of Mexico’s container cargo.last_img read more

Facebook Is Rolling Out 360Degree Video to News Feeds With a Little

first_img For the first time, Facebook’s $2 billion acquisition of virtual reality leader Oculus VR, is starting to bear fruit.The social network has announced that 360-degree videos are now viewable on news feeds. While Facebook led development for 360-degree capability, the team collaborated with its Oculus division in order to create Facebook’s first consumer-facing VR product, the company’s chief product officer, Chris Cox, told The Verge.If you’ve never experienced 360-degree video before, prepare to be blown away. On desktops, the technology allows users to click and drag around a scene in order to see things from every angle. But on mobile (the update is only available for Android devices thus far), the experience is even more seamlessly immersive, as scenery changes in accordance with how users position their phones in space.Facebook is rolling out the technology with a handful of publishing partners including Saturday Night Live, Vice and Star Wars — which even released a brand new scene from the upcoming The Force Awakens film to mark the occasion. See for yourself right here: Related: With an Empathy Button, Facebook Will Be Even More Valuable to AdvertisersWhile anyone can upload 360-degree videos to Facebook, the cameras required to shoot this kind of footage will still set you back a pretty penny.“In the future, imagine watching 360 videos of a friend’s vacation to a small village in France or a festival in Brazil,” writes Facebook’s engineering director of video, Maher Saba, of potential future uses as the technology becomes more mainstream. “You’ll be able to look around and experience it as if you were there.”Facebook isn’t the first platform to foray into 360-degree video. After announcing 360-degree support last March, YouTube recently said it would be adding 3-D capability into the mix.Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has long been vocal about his enthusiasm for VR, and has said that devices like Oculus could become the next major computing platform after smartphones.“In the future we’ll probably still carry phones in our pockets,” he said in a Q&A last June, “but I think we’ll also have glasses on our faces that can help us out throughout the day and give us the ability to share our experiences with those we love in completely immersive and new ways that aren’t possible today.”Related: Facebook Just Gave Small Businesses a Bunch of New Tools Enroll Now for Free September 24, 2015 Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Nowcenter_img 3 min read This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.last_img read more

Coachella owner is continuing to donate to antiLGBTI groups

first_imgA new year, a new report about Coachella founder Philip Anschutz donating to anti-LGBTI groups.Last January, it was revealed Anschutz allegedly donated nearly $200,000 to various homophobic groups. The revelation led many music fans to call for a Coachella boycott. Now, a new tax report reveals similar donations from Anschutz.Pitchfork found that between December 2015 and November 2016 he gave money to more troubling groups.Some of them include $40,000 to The Navigators. Their group lists identifying as LGBTI alongside engaging in incest. He also donated $185,000 to Young Life, a Christian youth ministry that says anyone who is ‘sexually active outside of a heterosexual marriage relationship’ cannot work or volunteer for them.Breaking down the numbersThe new report did find that Anschutz did not donate to groups like Alliance Defending Freedom, Family Research Council, and National Christian Foundation. These were some of the most offensive to people.Furthermore, after the initial 2017 report came out, Anschutz responded he was not anti-LGBTI. He also added he would no longer donate to groups that are knowingly anti-LGBTI.This new report does not include 2017 numbers so it is unclear whether that will remain true.However, Anschutz’s lawyer gave a statement to Pitchfork.They stated the Foundation ‘has stopped funding certain organizations after it was brought to our attention that some of their activities were inconsistent with our values’. They also described it as an ‘ongoing process’.More calls for boycottsHowever, fans are still calling for Coachella boycotts.#BoycottCoachella https://t.co/YZdNzqwNx9 GAYSTARNEWS- you should honestly just stop going to this. https://t.co/IfBqMzKXCk— Brandon Stosuy (@brandonstosuy) January 31, 2018 — Beavan T (@BeavanT) January 31, 2018 Cara Delevingne refuses to go to Coachella because of anti-LGBT ownerMy sketchy experience emailing this anti-LGBTI authorThis Christian group that ‘loves’ LGBTI people may have ulterior motivesRead the full article on Gaystarnews:  :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/coachella-owner-donate-anti-lgbti-groups/ The money people pay at Coachella goes into his pocket.

Scion of Larnaca family is married to culture

first_imgTHEO PANAYIDES meets a sentimental soul who has lived the good life, even if much of it was spent upstairs from the family museumThe first Pierides to arrive in Cyprus was also a Demetrios – and already, it seems, an important person. He came from Venice in 1753 (the family name was then Pieraki), with a decree from the Doge naming him as consul. “And ever since, 11 generations, we are here,” says his descendant, the current Demetrios, sitting in the drawing room of the 19th-century family home in Larnaca, upstairs from the museum which bears the family name.The family looms large in his life; it always has. Demetrios Pierides’ great-grandfather was the first Greek mayor of Larnaca. His father Zenon was also mayor of Larnaca. Their social contribution may be glimpsed in every corner of the city: “The general hospital, the town hall, the municipal garden, the poorhouse, the old people’s home, the church, the theatre, the municipal market – all these are donations from the family”. Demetrios’ CV lists the businesses carried out by the family group of companies, though most of these are inactive (he estimates he lost around 85 per cent of his fortune in 1974, when the Turks took Famagusta): “Shipping, since 1860; Banking, since 1866; Insurance, since 1872; Hotels, since 1962; Airlines, since 1937; Tourism, Real Estate and Motor Car Imports, since 1958”.The family informs who he is, and of course what he says. I’m under no illusions that I got him to drop his guard, or forget his status as spokesman for the House of Pierides – though he does have impeccable manners. He greets me in a navy-blue jacket (I’m in a T-shirt), which he then makes a show of taking off: “Since you’re ‘casual’, I will be too,” he offers magnanimously. It’s almost a performance, the grand old man in his 22-room mansion with the splendid garden – which he’s actually tried to make listed, he explains, to ensure it won’t succumb to anything as vulgar as development. “How many times have people told me, ‘Are you crazy, you have this huge garden and you did not build a hotel here?’.” Demetrios shakes his head: “The araucarias are 154 years old. To be cut, and made a boutique hotel? For God’s sake!”. He smiles, and leads me on a tour of the museum. We meet on June 29, a day before his 81st birthday.The museum is fascinating, showcasing five generations of Pierides resourcefulness. “My father’s Roman-glass collection is among the most important in Europe,” he notes in passing, guiding me through the small rooms. There’s a slight DIY, amateur-enthusiast feel to the place – it’s literally just the ground floor of an old family home – without much in the way of detailed descriptions. It’s easy to miss treasures like the large terracotta idol found in Souskiou, near Paphos, dating from the Chalcolithic period, or what Demetrios calls “the astronaut” – a baffling bichrome jug from the Cypro-Archaic period (around 650 BC) adorned with a weird humanoid figure who wears what looks like a diving helmet, has four fingers on each hand, and appears to be sitting on a chair that’s either jet-powered or spring-loaded. A god? An artist’s flight of fancy? Or perhaps a memory of a visiting alien? Where’s Erich von Daniken when you need him?The museum is fascinating – but the private residence upstairs is something else again. In a glass case, at the top of the stairs, are the nine medals which our host has been awarded over the years – this one by Chirac, that one by Papoulias or Berlusconi; Commander of the National Order of Merit, Gold Cross of the Order of Honour, the Royal Order of the Polar Star presented by King Carl Gustav of Sweden. Then you come to the drawing room and adjoining dining room, an enormous space once again festooned with photos.One section is devoted to celebrities: Demetrios with Sean Connery (who’s twice been a guest at his home in Glyfada), with Telly Savalas, with Melina Mercouri. Another section he wryly describes as “Those who failed to solve the Cyprus problem”, meaning all the presidents of Cyprus from Makarios onwards. (They all posed with him happily enough, down to the current incumbent.) Yet another table is loaded with pictures of royalty: King Umberto I of Italy looking very athletic; a 1947 snap of Simeon II, the exiled boy king of Bulgaria. Demetrios Pierides seems a little obsessed with royalty – and of course the subtext is clear, viz. that he himself is a kind of royalty, or as close as we come to it in Cyprus. He’s the scion (and only son) of a grand and wealthy family: business people, patrons of the arts, and – as he tells it – almost too philanthropic for their own good.“Would you say there’s a touch of ‘noblesse oblige’ in your makeup?”“Could be, yes,” he replies, then looks at me anxiously: “Does it sound snobbish?”.The response says much about the man – because Demetrios comes across as a sensitive, sentimental soul, a man who revels in his position but would much prefer to be loved than feared. To be called a snob would hurt him as deeply, I suspect, as being called vulgar (probably more, since he knows the latter charge to be baseless). At one point I ask if he has an artistic streak, given his love of the arts; “Thank God, no,” he replies with a laugh, “because I’ve never heard a living painter say a good word about another living painter!” – the implication being that life as an artist would’ve made him enemies, and caused him pain. He runs on feelings, and human relationships. He studied Psychology for a year, alongside his main degree (Economics and Law, in Lausanne), but dropped out of the course because he didn’t want to approach people scientifically; he preferred to go with his heart – even when it made for bad business.All his life, he admits wryly, “I was expecting to get £1,000, but in my mind I had already spent £1,300. Because I always believed that, when you get, your hand is full – but when you give, your heart is full. And I was not, in the strict sense of a businessman, a good businessman.”Culture, of course, was the main beneficiary of these unprofitable numbers. He married briefly, in the late 1960s – but soon split up and instead “became married to culture”, which made much more sense. The museum in Larnaca pre-dates him, of course – but he also founded the Pierides Foundation, through which he expanded the family’s empire significantly: a museum of contemporary art in Athens (where he lived for “20 beautiful years” till the mid-90s), the Municipal Arts Centre in Nicosia, two marine-themed museums in Ayia Napa, an Ethnographic Museum in a country house belonging to his GP in the village of Avgorou. Seems a bit risky, building a museum in a small village, I point out; maybe not the best business decision. “You say ‘business’,” he shrugs in reply, “but the culture, and the museums, do not bring money… On the contrary, I spent a great deal of money, especially to collect those 600 beautiful artefacts of our prehistoric times”.That’s a reference to perhaps his happiest decade: 1964-74, when business was booming in Famagusta, Demetrios was a dashing young man with a world-class collection of sports cars, and the newly-formed Turkish Cypriot enclaves provided a unique opportunity for the serious collector. The enclaves were protected by the UN, free to do what they liked – so “they were excavating every night in prehistoric necropolises, like in Kotsiatis, Marki and Souskiou, and bringing to light these beautiful pieces… And I doubled the prices, so everyone knew there’s a crazy man in Famagusta who, if you showed him what you had in a sketch –” he shrugs, as if to say ‘The rest is history’. He had Turkish Cypriot agents keeping an eye on things, contacting him straight away when new treasures were unearthed; in all, more than 600 pieces made their way into the Pierides vaults. It wasn’t just a passion for collecting, he muses: “It was also, if you like, a minimum of a social and family duty, to continue what five generations before me started”.There it is again: duty, status, the burden of family. His path was set from childhood, the pressure enormous; the Pierides name had to be safeguarded. “I had no choice,” he shrugs. “I wanted to follow my uncle Zenon Rossides, who was for years ambassador to Washington and the United Nations. He had no children and he liked me very much, and I wanted to go and live with him in New York – but I had no choice. I had to come back and look after all the family businesses. With no regrets, of course,” he adds, almost as an afterthought.Being born rich, it turns out, is almost as much of a trap as being born poor – though of course the fringe benefits are better. Take that collection of cars, for instance: three Aston Martins (including the DB5, which he bought after watching Goldfinger but before becoming mates with Sean Connery), two Ferraris (a Superamerica and a Testarossa), a Maserati, an Iso Rivolta. “I enjoyed the Lamborghini Espada for at least 20 years,” he recalls – but then foolishly switched to a Lamborghini Diablo which turned out to be a disaster, far too low and without any luggage space, so he sent it back after two months with a disapproving note. You know you’re living the good life when your new Lamborghini isn’t up to the standards of your old Lamborghini.Demetrios did live the good life: not just the cars but yachts, skiing holidays, trips to Paris and the Riviera. But it wasn’t a wild life, he insists. There were plenty of parties, but “no nightlife” – and besides, “I have always been careful”. He’s never stayed up too late, even in Athens with its crazy rhythms, only smoked once in his life (a pipe, in Lausanne as a student; he hated it), will drink maybe “one glass of red wine in winter, now and then, and some beer in the summer”. Perhaps it’s his character – or perhaps it’s the family again, that dutiful repression of his wilder instincts that’s been second nature since childhood.He recalls his frustration as an active little boy forced to “live in a museum”, and how he chafed against always being told to be careful. He recalls missing school trips because such-and-such a prince, or archbishop, or prime minister was coming to visit, and little Demetrios had to be there to shake hands. He also recalls an intriguing story, of driving from Bari to Rimini on a Sunday morning back in the day. “I knew that it was a straight road, not even a small bend – and I was alone.” There was no traffic at all, so he stepped on the gas – but suddenly, “when I reached 230km/h in my Ferrari Superamerica, I said to myself: ‘What are you doing? One small stone in the road – and finished! Don’t you have responsibilities to others? If you are killed, whom are you killing also? Your father, your mother’… And I never, ever went above a certain speed again.”Some may call that repression, others civic duty. Demetrios Pierides has done his bit, to be sure; he hasn’t just posed for photos with the elite, he’s been one of them. He’s chaired 28 companies and was on the Bank of Cyprus board for 13 years, till 2006. (“Of course, to be on the board of Bank of Cyprus was also a family tradition – because the bank was created by my grandfather, amongst others.”) He was instrumental in founding the bank’s Greek network, and still can’t comprehend why Cypriot banks in Greece were sold for such a pittance around the time of the haircut. He’s twice declined offers of a ministry, and fended off entreaties to follow his father as mayor of Larnaca.His worldview, it must be said, is quite hierarchical, with a healthy respect for authority and a faith in the rich and powerful getting it right. We talk a bit about politics, and I’m surprised to find that he welcomes America’s recent interventions in the Middle East, even the decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem. “They will meet with Putin,” he asserts confidently, “and find another Yalta”. And of course his hierarchical thinking goes all the way to the top: “I have a great belief in God, [and] I pray and ask for pardon every night”.One small detail remains to be sorted. Demetrios has no children – so what happens to this priceless collection when others take over, and (more importantly) what happens to the great Pierides legacy? Hard to say, but he’s not without willing hands. His nephew Peter Ashdjian currently manages the museum and Foundation; another nephew, Zenon, lives in Limassol; a nine-year-old boy named Panayiotis also appears as I take my leave, introduced as Demetrios’ grandson though actually his godson (the two seem close, Pierides calling himself the boy’s “third grandfather”). One way or another, I suspect, the duty that’s dominated – and sometimes repressed – his life for eight decades won’t be forgotten.

many Republican or conservative Democratic men in the state decide they hate polarization — or Trump — more than they may have been turned off by Senate Democrats during the Kavanaugh hearingsThat bloc of generally conservative male voters could join with reliable Democratic voters — notably college-educated women repulsed by Trump — to put Donnelly over the edge in an overwhelmingly conservative stateBut polls show Braun gaining steam in the final two weeks The race — one of the key contests that will determine which party controls the US Senate — has always been close and was always going to be a nail biter But Braun has edged ahead in two recent polls though one was conducted by his own campaignRepublicans have pulled even in TV advertising this fall after being outspent over the summer That’s a reason for the race to have tightened after many saw Donnelly in the driver’s seat for months If Braun has an edge now some think the Kavanaugh hearings are a big reason along with Donnelly’s decision to vote against Trump’s nominee to the high court – Jon Ward Both parties go all in on Nevada’s bellwether Senate race: Anyone hoping to understand what’s about to happen on Nov 6 might want to adopt a new slogan: “As Nevada goes so go the midterms” — in particular the hard-fought Senate contest between Democratic Rep Jacky Rosen and incumbent Republican Sen Dean HellerMany of the contours of the 2018 midterms have been clear for months Democrats have long been enthusiastic about rebuking Trump’s GOP at the polls; white college-educated women have broken sharply with the president and seem energized to turn out What’s been less clear is the mood of the GOP base: Will they be discouraged (as they were in the 2006 midterms under President George W Bush) or excited (as they were in 2010 and 2014 under President Barack Obama) The same goes for Latinos who tend not to show up in off-year elections and who have sounded less engaged and less anti-Trump in recent surveys than Democrats had hopedJacky Rosen and Dean Heller (Photo illustration: Yahoo News; photos: John Locher/Pool/AP (2); Ethan Miller/Getty Images)MoreThese are two of the biggest remaining questions of the cycle — and Nevada is uniquely positioned to answer bothFor one thing each party is bringing its A game to the Silver State The Democrats’ vaunted Reid machine — named after its architect former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid — is “still humming” as Helen Kalla communications director for the state party recently told Yahoo News with its unmatched record of partnering with the powerful Culinary Workers Union to turn out Latino voters in Clark County (Las Vegas) Meanwhile some of the biggest names in Democratic politics — Obama former Vice President Joe Biden independent Vermont Sen Bernie Sanders — have visited Nevada in recent days to rally the Democratic baseNot to be outdone the national GOP has invested more heavily in its Nevada ground game than ever before employing dozens of paid staffers across the state; together they’ve trained thousands of volunteers fellows neighborhood team leaders and core team members with a particular focus on rural absentee balloting And Trump himself visited Elko on Saturday with Vice President Mike Pence to follow in Carson City this coming weekendThere are signs that Republican efforts may be paying off As the national intensity gap between Democrats and Republican narrows and conservatives reengage in the wake of the polarizing Brett Kavanaugh hearings — likely a factor in Heller’s improving poll numbers — the first few days of Nevada early voting suggest that Democratic dreams of a dispirited Trump base sitting 2018 out are unlikely to come true“Rural turnout [is] up [over previous midterms] and the GOP [is] destroying the Democrats there in early voting and absentees” writes Jon Ralston Nevada’s top political journalistAt the same time Democrats also seem to be performing well in the bluer and purpler parts of the state with “double-digit” leads in Clark County and “five straight days” of victories in Washoe the state’s key swing county Polarization is the pattern with passions running high on both sides Meanwhile a new poll taken for Rosen’s campaign by Latino Decisions which offers bilingual interviewing and is known for its ability to accurately sample and poll Latinos shows Rosen leading by nearly 50 percent among likely Latino voters — a margin that could ensure a Democratic victory if it actually materializes on Election DayWith 11 days to go these are two of the

also inured the broader populace to political malfeasance you’d need to see how Democrats who have railed relentlessly against the president’s “corruption” this cycle react when accusations touch one of their ownBob Hugin the Republican candidate for New Jersey’s Senate seat and Robert Menendez the Democratic incumbent (Yahoo News photo illustration; photos: AP Getty Images)MoreEnter Robert “Bob” Menendez D-NJ In 2015 Menendez — a senator since 2006 and a member of the House of Representatives for 13 years before that — was indicted on charges brought by Barack Obama’s Justice Department The accusations stemmed from his relationship with a Florida doctor who gave him trips on his private plane and free nights in fancy Paris hotels allegedly in exchange for various favors Menendez was “severely admonished” by the Senate Ethics Committee But his trial last year ended in a hung jury and the Justice Department said in January that it was dropping the charges freeing him to run for reelection In a separate trial the doctor was convicted of Medicare fraud and sentenced to 17 years in prisonMenendez’s Republican opponent Bob Hugin has — no surprise here — made the scandal the centerpiece of his campaign blanketing New Jersey’s ultra-expensive airwaves with months of ads about how the state’s sitting senator is a “disgrace” who “broke federal law”So how’s that working out for him Not well enough it seemsIn recent weeks the polling gap between Menendez and Hugin has grown Three of the four latest nonpartisan polls show the incumbent clearing the crucial 50-percent mark with his average lead doubling to nearly 10 percentage points The data journalists at FiveThirtyEight currently give Menendez a 91 percent chance of victoryAccording to Monmouth University’s Patrick Murray the most respected political pollster in New Jersey the reason Menendez is pulling away is simple“Partisan tribalism” says Murray “There are basically no issues that can persuade people to cross over to the other side anymore — including ethics and corruption”To that end a majority of New Jersey voters (56 percent in a Monmouth poll) now say that their views of Trump — who commands a 55 percent disapproval rating in the state — are more important than their views of Menendez (31 percent) while an even larger majority (64 percent) says that Menendez’s behavior was no worse than that of any other politician Stacey Abrams focused on rural Georgia in debate Brian Kemp on scaring voters: A debate this week in the Georgia governor’s race between Stacey Abrams and Brian Kemp was dominated by competing visions of the present and future put forward by the starkly contrasting candidates reports Jon WardPolls show a deadlocked raceAbrams the Democrat repeatedly returned to her central plan for the state which starts with Medicaid expansion But she hammered away at her argument that this idea would help rural Georgians most of all in contrast to the traditional Republican argument that expanding Medicaid only helps the urban poorContenders for the Georgia governorship in a recent debate: Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams and her Republican opponent Secretary of State Brian Kemp (Photo: John Bazemore/Pool/AP)MoreThe rural-versus-urban divide has dominated Georgia politics for decades and has a strong racial undertone Until the ’60s the state’s elections were heavily tilted in favor of rural counties where white Georgians held power and often prevented people of color from voting or made it extremely difficult at the expense of more heavily populated and racially diverse urban areas like AtlantaBut Abrams knows she will get plenty of votes from the urban areas The question has been how she will win over voters in the suburbs and rural portions of Georgia She has rejected the idea of watering down her liberalism But on Tuesday night there was no other theme she repeated more often than her desire to help rural Georgia extending an open hand to the most conservative part of the stateAbrams said that expanding Medicaid would create 56000 jobs in the state and that 60 percent of those jobs would be outside the metro Atlanta area But more fundamentally she argued that expanding Medicaid would provide more stability for rural areas by keeping population in place and providing a foundation for future economic growthWhether or not rural conservatives vote for Abrams the more important audience for her rural Georgia message might be moderate suburban whites who worry that Abrams is too left-wing and will hurt the state’s economyKemp’s main goal for the night was to try to frighten these same suburban and exurban voters into running away from Abrams “This should scare you to death” he said at one point about her plans — Jon Ward In
