Recruiting Wish List: A Reset of Oklahoma State’s Top 2020 Targets

first_imgWhile you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future. As it turns out, sending folks on the road to cover games and provide 24/7 Pokes coverage like the excellent article you just read costs money. Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. Oklahoma State is more than halfway through the 2020 recruiting cycle, and its progress in building the class is right on par with that. As we look ahead to August, the class is up to 13 commitments of a possible NCAA-maximum 25, and enough targets are in sight to land right at the number or darn near it before December’s signing period.Let’s reset the big board and take a look at who is in OSU’s wish list.1. Monroe Mills, OT — A 6-foot-7 (!), 291-pound tackle from Missouri, Mills is a new addition to this list after being offered by OSU two weeks ago. He’s rated as a three-star recruit but has nearly two dozen offers — including Kansas, Missouri, Iowa State and Illinois.2. Larry Moore, OT — Well … this could be fun. Moore is pledged to Texas Tech, but OSU offered regardless earlier this month. Moore is a 6-foot-5, 275-pound tackle from Missouri City, Texas, who fits a need at tackle for OSU in the class. It seems like OSU wants at least one more, and ideally, either Mills or Moore would take that final OL spot.3. Daniyel Ngata, RB — Ngata is a top-100 running back from Cali — not exactly the type of player OSU lands, nor from the geographic region OSU recruits from. But, OSU is in the top five for Ngata, fighting Texas A&M, Clemson, Arizona State and Utah for his signature.4. Isaiah Jacobs, RB — A slightly more realistic running back option. Jacobs is from down the road in Owasso, but every bit as talented and sought-after as Ngata. OSU offered in May and he visited last month. OSU is battling Michigan, Ole Miss, Arkansas, and nearly a dozen others for the 5-10, 195-pound speedster’s commitment.5. Jalen Logan-Redding, DE — Logan-Redding is a 6-foot-4, 235-pound defensive end from Missouri. OSU is in his top four, as is Missouri — the predicted favorite.6. Jabar Triplett, OLB — With Brynden Walker backing away from his OSU pledge and flipping to OU, OSU needs an outside linebacker. Triplett, a 6-foot, 215-pound outside backer from Baton Rouge, seems to fit what OSU is looking for. He visited OSU earlier this summer and is considering the Pokes along with Texas Tech and Louisiana Tech. More offers could be coming, but OSU seems to be in a good spot here.7. Loic Fouonji, WR — The receiver position remains unaddressed (for now) in 2020. Fouonji, though, seems to be trending OSU’s direction. He’s a 6-4, 194-pound pass-catcher from Midland Texas who is considering Baylor, SMU, Arkansas, Colorado and others. I suspect he’s on commitment watch leading into the fall.8. Jay Wilkerson, WR — Wilkerson is OSU freshman Langston Anderson’s former high school teammate, and OSU offered earlier this year. He seems to be a great fit in OSU’s scheme and there’s a comfort level between OSU and Wilkerson, who have met up on numerous occasions in Stillwater. He’s a 6-1 speedster who can burn defenders down field with his speed and shiftiness.last_img read more

Changes to Wildlife Act Regulations

first_imgNova Scotians have another tool for harvesting deer, thanks to recent changes to regulations under the Nova Scotia Wildlife Act.Changes to the Firearm and Bow Regulations will allow the use of crossbows by qualified individuals for hunting deer in the province. “We are also making efforts to reduce the deer population in some areas where it has risen significantly,” said Natural Resources Minister David Morse. “In Lunenburg County, there have been hundreds of motor vehicle accidents involving deer. We are exploring many options to help municipalities with this problem.” Hunters meeting certain requirements that harvest and register a doe deer in the South Shore Zone 2A will qualify for a bonus stamp for a second deer of either sex. “Once the success of these options is measured, we are prepared to implement additional methods to reduce deer population if necessary,” said Mr. Morse. The changes are among a number of amendments made to regulations under the Wildlife Act. Others changes include: remove snapping turtle from the list of wildlife available for harvest; lower the minimum age for companion moose hunters to 16 to allow more youth and family participation in the moose hunt; extend bear snaring season so it is consistent with the closing of the bear and open deer hunting seasons; allow a licenced fur harvester to appoint another licenced fur harvester as a partner, allowing both to legally set and tend to each others traps; increase bag limits for beaver to better reflect sustainable harvest levels for regional populations.last_img read more

Family of BC murder suspect says Oscar Arfmann fought mental illness

first_imgVANCOUVER – A family member of an Alberta man charged with the first-degree murder of a British Columbia police officer say the accused had been struggling since losing his wife almost five years ago.In a statement, 65-year-old Oscar Arfmann’s sister-in-law says he “was really never the same” after his wife died in April 2013.It says Arfmann was admitted to hospital in St. Paul, a town northeast of Edmonton, in July 2015 for a mental evaluation, but he was released three days later.Arfmann is charged in the death of Const. John Davidson in the Vancouver suburb of Abbotsford earlier this week.The 53-year-old officer with 24 years on the job was critically injured while responding to a report of a possible stolen vehicle and shots fired at members of the public.Arfmann’s family says it wants to extend its deepest condolences to Davidson’s family and the Abbotsford Police Department.Arfmann remained in hospital on Tuesday and British Columbia’s civilian agency that investigates police actions resulting in serious harm or death has said it’s believed he was shot.The statement released by Arfmann’s sister-in-law on behalf of the family says Arfmann continued to struggle with mental health issues after being released from hospital in 2015.“Family members had tried to seek help for him but he refused to go to the doctor,” the statement says.Hope Arfmann said she married Oscar when she was 18 but the marriage lasted less than three years because he was emotionally abusive.The couple lived in the small hamlet of Sunnybrook, Alta., and also on a farm near Millet, where she said he would hunt small rodents and birds.“The birds deserted the area, the squirrels, the gophers — anybody and everybody spread the word: stay away from that area,” she said.She said their split was tense and she suffered a medical condition that caused blackouts when she felt distressed.“I wanted to leave and he decided to keep me from doing that,” she explained. “I had been cutting up a roast at the table to make him a last lunch. And he says, ‘well, you ain’t going unless I let you go, and I ain’t letting you go.’ And that’s all I heard. When my sensibility came back, there was a knife in the wall.”However, she said the incident had been enough to bring about a change of mind on his part. She said in no time at all, he had packed up her belongings and driven her into Edmonton.After their split, their contact was limited, though they had a son together who she later gave up for adoption. Hope said after their divorce was made final by a Wetaskiwin court in the summer of 1975, Oscar married a woman named Patricia.“I heard by the bye that they were still like honeymooners after 40 years,” she said. “I was tickled pink. He married the right person the second time. For some reason, they clicked.”She said Oscar took Patricia’s death hard.“The only thing that he really loved was Patricia,” she said.— With files from Gwen Dambrofsky in Edmonton.last_img read more

Sam Simon Named As Honorary Director Of PETA

first_imgSam Simon — co-creator of The Simpsons and renowned philanthropist— has been named an honorary director of PETA.PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk presenting Sam Simon with a certificateSimon was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2012 and has been helping PETA enormously with its animal rescue programs and youth outreach work, including funding the current nationwide college tour of a virtual reality experience called “I, Chicken,” getting 17 bears transferred from virtually barren concrete pits to a lush new home, and helping rescue several chimpanzees and a horse used for racing, among many other efforts. His support of PETA — whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way” — led them to name their Virginia headquarters after him in 2013, and now he joins Bill Maher, Pamela Anderson, Chrissie Hynde, and James Cromwell in sharing the “honorary director” distinction.Anderson says, “I’ve been lucky enough to join forces with one of my favorite characters, Sam. We’ve been on many campaigns together. I might be able to draw some of the attention, but Sam seals the deal. Money talks, but he doesn’t just give money, he shows up — even against doctor’s orders.”last_img read more

Young American sings classical Arabic music wows audiences

first_imgBeirut- Young American Jennifer Grout doesn’t speak a word of Arabic, but has taught herself to sing the Arab world’s best-known, most difficult songs, and could even win its major music competition.Her blonde hair loose and without a sign of make-up, the 23-year-old appeared before a panel of judges to audition for the Arabs Got Talent show.When Egyptian film star and panel member Ahmed Helmy asked her in Arabic what her what her name was, she didn’t have a clue what he was saying. But then she began to play the oud and sing a classic by Egyptian diva Umm Kalthoum, “Baeed Annak” (Far from you).She stunned the audience, enunciating every word to perfection as her voice effortlessly navigated the quarter-notes that make Arabic music so distinctive.Grout, who grew up in a musical home in Boston, Massachusetts and has studied piano and violin since the age of five, only discovered her passion for Arabic music three years ago.As a 20-year-old student in Boston, Grout says she “came across an online article about Fairouz,” whose unique, angelic voice rings out on radio stations across the Arab world every morning.“I listened to her and watched a video of her, and I was just really intrigued and mesmerised by her voice. So I decided to start exploring Arabic music more,” Grout told AFP.Ever since, she has learned to sing not only songs by Umm Kalthoum — whose voice is still considered the Arab world’s finest three decades after her death — but also Syrian star Asmahan and the compositions of Egypt’s Mohammad Abdel Wahab.Quietly confident, Grout’s is a rare presence on the hugely popular Arabs Got Talent, which usually hosts artists more likely to choose pop music, either Arabic or Western.Asked why she didn’t choose that path, she laughed: “That would be like asking an opera singer why she sings opera as opposed to Britney Spears.”Although the music she loves best is decades old, it would have been well-nigh impossible for Grout to develop her passion without the Internet, with its wealth of videos of classical Arabic songs and their lyrics.She says that although she doesn’t speak Arabic, she understands the lyrics because she has found the translations for many of the songs online.At the same time, she has asked her Arabic-speaking friends to help.“Of course it’s essential to understand what you’re singing about,” she said while preparing for rehearsal at a production studio of MBC broadcaster in Zouk Mosbeh, north of Beirut.Several teachers have taught her to play oud, which she sometimes plays as an accompaniment.The final of the show will be held on Saturday, when Grout will compete for first place against 11 other contestants.Voters will call in to name their favorite, and Grout says that, if she wins, she will use the opportunity to get more exposure.“I guess I would just see what opportunities rise out of this. Hopefully this will give me enough exposure to get performance opportunities, because that’s really all I want to do, if I can, for the rest of my life,” she said.YouTube and Facebook users have left scores of comments on her singing, most of them positive.“Jennifer is the best,” writes one on YouTube. “Wow, damn she is good!” writes another. “She has a beautiful soul,” writes a third.But some viewers have expressed disbelief, calling her performances a publicity stunt.“It’s a trick in order to gain publicity,” says one skeptic on YouTube, accusing the Arabs Got Talent show of merely pretending that she can’t speak Arabic.Grout says she is familiar with that disbelief, and that she experienced it at her fateful TV audition.“Initially when I got on stage the audience was not expecting much,” she said.“I actually heard the audience started to laugh. And then later on, about 30 seconds in, it changed to silence, and then it changed to cheering, because everyone in the end was very impressed.”last_img read more

Pipeline rupture sends 40000 litres of oil into Alberta creek

DRAYTON VALLEY, Alta. — The Alberta Energy Regulator says a pipeline has spilled 40,000 litres of crude oil into a creek.The regulator says on its website that the incident happened Thursday on a Bonterra Energy Corp. line 14 kilometres south of Drayton Valley, Alta.It says the line was shut in and depressurized, and that containment booms were installed.The AER says no impacts to wildlife were reported.Calgary-based Bonterra says in a news release that it began investigating a problem with the pipeline at 8 a.m. Thursday, and at 1 p.m. it discovered a rupture that was leaking into Washout Creek.It says it is removing the oil with booms and vacuums, and is mitigating the effect on wildlife by setting up barriers as well as visual deterrents that include having people present.Washout Creek flows into the North Saskatchewan River, which is the source of Edmonton’s water supply, and Bonterra says it has placed additional booms where the creek meets the river as an extra precaution.The company says cleanup and recovery is expected to continue for the next three weeks.The Canadian Press read more

Klopp Divocks attitude is a good example

first_imgLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised the attitude of striker Divock Origi despite him struggling for game time in the first team this season.Divock Origi spent last season on loan at Wolfsburg and was on the bench for Liverpool’s last two games against Huddersfield Town and Red Star Belgrade. Klopp was impressed with the Belgian’s work rate in training and attitude.Speaking to Liverpoolfc website, Klopp said “Div is a good example for players who were not too much involved in the last couple of weeks because he is doing outstandingly,”“Dom Solanke is in a good moment and nobody can see it because he is not playing. That’s the problem – like Clyney, like Alberto Moreno and all these guys.“You can only play really good football when you train well and you can only train well if the training group is really strong. They are really strong.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“I forgot Joel Matip… he would play for 97 percent of Premier League and Bundesliga clubs, I am 100 percent sure. He was not in the squad for the last game and he is in outstanding shape.“That makes life comfortable for a manager on one hand and on the other quite difficult, because we need these players 100 percent.“For the last two games, it was clear that Div deserved to be involved. In the end, the games were not that we had to use him.“But if the boys continue like they trained in the last few weeks and months then they will have their moments, 100 percent.”last_img read more

Mane credits teamwork for Liverpool win

first_imgSadio Mane says Liverpool’s 4-1 victory against Cardiff City at Anfield is due to the rest of the team playing so well and not just the attacking trio.Mane grabbed a brace in the Premier League clash after Salah opened the scoring. Together with Roberto Firmino, the trio has scored 18 goals in all competitions so far this season.But Mane believes the whole team deserves credit for their latest win, given how the game panned out.“Hopefully we’re going to keep going like that! It’s something that comes naturally because Mo and Bobby are great players and of course I’m happy to play alongside them,” Mane told Liverpoolfc.com.“But people always talk about the front three – but it’s the team, the work starts behind us. They make it easier, we are lucky boys and score all the time but all the team did their job.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“I’m happy, we played very well even though it was a little bit tight in the second half after it went to 2-1″ Mane added.“It’s part of football. But after that, we controlled the game and created many chances. At the end, we scored four goals so I think we deserved to win.“The coach said yesterday it would be a very tough game.

FHP FDOT work to remind drivers to move over for emergency vehicles

first_imgMIAMI (WSVN) – January is Move Over Awareness Month in Florida, so officials are coming together to make sure drivers understand and follow the rules of the road.The Florida Highway Patrol and the Florida Department of Transportation teamed up Monday to remind drivers to move over a lane for emergency and service vehicles stopped along the roadway.“It can be a police officer, a firefighter, road ranger, towing company, sanitation department — anyone that is providing a service to you.” said FHP Lt. Joe Sanchez.Earlier this month, road ranger Zucchero Cole was rushed to the hospital after a car crashed into his truck while he was responding to an accident on Interstate 95 in Oakland Park.Similarly, FHP trooper Daniel Cruz was struck by a suspected drunk driver while investigating a crash on the Palmetto Expressway in Hialeah back in December. The incident left him out of work for six months and unable to walk at this time.“Recently, three troopers have been hit, and several road rangers, in the past few years, have been hit,” said Jim Wolfe, FDOT District 6 Secretary. “They’re out there trying to make things safer for the public, and yet they are in danger.”Officials said not many drivers know about the safety law and the hazards that lie on the open road. “Sadly, throughout the state, we’ve seen a lot of people lose their lives because people are violating this law,” said Sanchez. “It’s affecting us here locally, we’ve had three troopers seriously injured, struck by motor vehicles who clearly violated the Move Over law.”The Move Over law states drivers must slow their speed by at least 20 miles per hour or move over a lane, if possible, when passing an emergency vehicle on the side of the road.If you violate the move over law, you can be issued a ticket, receive three points on your license and have to pay a fine.FHP troopers are now on the road, stopping drivers who break the law.“This guy drove by two troopers and didn’t slow down or move over,” said FHP Lt. Alex Camacho.As many as 240 traffic citations were handed out on Monday.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.

Rapture shock ANWR Alaskans react to Trump victory

(Photo by Rachel Waldholz/Alaska’s Energy Desk)By Liz Ruskin and Rachel WaldholzDownload audioWhile Democrats have gained power in the Alaska legislature, Donald Trump’s upset victory in the presidential race left national Republicans in control of both the White House and Congress.As that realization rippled through Anchorage Tuesday night, Trump supporters reacted with elation, Democrats with shock, and surprised Republican officials ticked off a wish list of priorities that suddenly seemed within reach.Alaska voters went for Trump over Hillary Clinton, 51 to 37 percent, while Libertarian Gary Johnson took just under 6 percent. Incumbent Republicans U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski and Rep. Don Young also won their races by wide margins.George LaMoureaux, statewide volunteer coordinator for the Trump campaign, celebrated with his daughter, Ashley LaMoureaux, at Flattop Pizza in downtown Anchorage. (Photo by Rachel Waldholz/Alaska’s Energy Desk)At a campaign watch party at Flattop Pizza in downtown Anchorage, Trump supporters erupted in rapturous cheers when Fox News officially called the race at about 10:40 p.m.George LaMoureaux was the statewide volunteer coordinator for the Trump campaign. Asked if he was expecting the win, LaMoureaux said, “Praying for it. I had high hopes the whole time.”John MacKinnon took in the scene with his wife, Republican state Sen. Anna MacKinnon. He said the vote sent a clear message.“I think we’re seeing America come out and say, ‘We’ve had enough,’” MacKinnon said. “Enough regulation. Enough government. Enough telling us what we have to do and not what we want to do.”That sentiment was shared by Brady Huseby. Huseby, 30, is a member of the Carpenters’ Local 1281. He said the union supported Clinton.“They post a union booklet on who we’re supposed to vote for, and it’s Democrat across the board,” Huseby said.  “And everybody threw it in the garbage.”Meanwhile, Democrats gathered just across the street at the restaurant Williwaw were in shock. Many in the audience cried and consoled each other as the outcome became clear.Maka Jinaatlaa Monture watches results come in toward the end of the night at the Democrats’ event at Williwaw in downtown Anchorage.

He said he was sure Trump’s values were out of sync with the majority of voters — until he saw the results.“I think a lot of people really thought that they would reject Trump’s message,” Primm said. “And instead what you have is a lot of people who really seem to think that is the answer, instead.”Democrats weren’t the only ones surprised by the outcome.Lisa Murkowski celebrates on Election Night. (Photo by Liz Ruskin, Alaska Public Media – Anchorage)At Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s victory party, people congregated around the television screens, stunned by the presidential results.Both Murkowski and Congressman Don Young trounced their nearest challengers. Murkowski beat Libertarian Joe Miller by about 14 points and Young defeated Democrat Steve Lindbeck by about the same margin.The bigger surprise was Trump’s win.Alaska Republican Party chairman Tuckerman Babcock was joyfully adjusting to the idea of a Trump presidency. Babcock said Trump appealed to a different segment of the party than his own.“He speaks kind of right by me,” Babcock said. “He speaks to a group of people who feel disenfranchised and who really came out to vote for him in the upper Midwest and the South, and I am surprised. I’m happy. But I am surprised.”Babcock said Trump will be good for Alaska on energy, and maybe federal land policy, too.“That’s probably the biggest question, is how much the federal government will transfer management of lands to Alaska,” Babcock said. “It’s long been a goal of the Republican party in Alaska. I don’t know if Mr. Trump shares that goal. But he shares a lot of goals. Just (being) pro-oil and gas development and (for) the robust military are going to make a big difference.”Murkowski told reporters that one of her first efforts will be a push to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling, a goal that has eluded Alaska’s congressional delegation for decades. She also spoke of finally getting a road through the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge to help King Cove. And then she checked herself.“This is not Christmas. This is governing and governing is hard work,” Murkowski said.She said Republicans in the Senate will still need to work with the Democrats in Congress.Congressman Don Young won re-election to a 23rd term.

And we’ll need that with ANWR. We’ll need that with other issues that always have been complicated in Alaska.”Young said the House Republican leadership plans to make energy a top priority, and he thinks that could include developing the coastal plain of the Arctic Refuge.“Oh, ANWR is possible and I think likely,” Young said.Young said the leadership’s initial to-do list also includes repealing or reforming Obama’s healthcare law, deregulation and a transportation package.And with complete control by a single party, Young and Murkowski acknowledged, the pressure will be on Republicans to deliver.Zachariah Hughes contributed to this report.last_img read more

We Need a Hopeful Star Trek Series Now More Than Ever

first_imgStay on target Sci-fi is intrinsically political, and Star Trek more than most. In the 200th episode of one of my own favorite series, Stargate SG-1, a rare side character left us with one of the last, and most profound lines in the show’s 10-year run:“Science fiction is an existential metaphor that allows us to tell stories about the human condition. Isaac Asimov once said, ‘Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinded critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence, has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all.’”That quote, while perhaps a bit grandiose, has been one of the most important and influential lines of my life. It’s led me to re-think my relationship to the genre that defined my childhood. More than comics, more than video games, more than fantasy or trading cards or anything else, I get my geek cred from speculative fiction.Its creators, its big thinkers have always been politically-minded. And you have to be. Thinking about the future naturally comes with it an analysis and judgment of what is right and what is wrong in a way that most other time periods don’t. It’s easy to pass off X or Y storyline in a contemporarily set film, but if you have a dystopia tale and the government is xenophobic, there’s an intrinsic moral judgment there.Dystopia, too, has largely been the bedrock of futuristic worlds. It’s natural, it seems, to look to the future and despair. If we go all the way back to big thinkers like Aristotle and Plato, even they thought that the end of civilization was right around the corner. The more things change, the more they stay the same, indeed, eh?Star Trek, even with its awkward, campy writing showed us a different path. It has, for almost fifty years, been one of the only major sci-fi universes that has consistently and aggressively held that humans will find a brighter future. During the height of the Cold War, Star Trek showed us that we would one day look past these contemporary disagreements and find new, common ground out in the void — together. Star Fleet is a future version of the American ideal. No one needs to worry about upward social mobility because there is no money — everyone is judged solely based on their skill, and we’ve all but forgotten the prejudices of old. There are plenty who would claim such a starry-eyed future is a bit misguided (and I’m certainly one of them), but it did something that few others had even tried — told us that our species would be okay, that we would figure it out, and, most importantly, that’d we get there by being friends.Silly as it sounds, that’s demonstrably true. Those who study the topic will tell you that, with very few exceptions, cooperation is the key to progress. Look back at the course of human history, and its clear that many of our greatest moments came from times of collaboration. The internet, packed to the gills with memes, is at least somewhat evidence of this. It may well be a tool for trolls and curmudgeons, but I’ve found my biological father through social media, maintained contact with friends I thought I’d lost, and even managed to find a flexible job that I enjoy. Scientists and researchers share resources and findings daily, and the ability of this global network to help educate and liberate people all over the world is nothing short of staggering.Studies of game theory consistently show that people who work together do better. The whole of human evolutionary history is a testament to that too — when we work together, we can do incredible things. We’ve cured polio, spread across the globe, and even managed to band together to stop the depletion of our planet’s protective layer of ozone gas. For fuck’s sake we managed to land on the moon less than 70 years after we figured out how to make planes. We are only small when we’re alone — together we can tackle nearly any challenge.Since the turn of the century, however, Star Trek’s lost its light. Deep Space 9, while delightfully complex and political just doesn’t have the same broad-sweeping impact. Neither did its follow-up, Enterprise, which was keen to drop its pro-social focus and work in plots about terrorism. Relevant, yes, but not the vision we need.Discovery carries an enormous weight — balancing the narrowed scope of Abrams-era films and the optimistic vision of its TV forebears — and I’m not confident it’ll work out. The show’s been troubled with all kinds of production issues, and CBS is leveraging the future of its streaming service on the Star Trek band — effectively burning through the franchise’s recognizable capital in exchange for the network’s own.More troubling is that the teaser, released earlier this week, seems to toss out the big ideas and rehash the human-Klingon conflict yet again. It’s not like there’s nothing interesting to say there — to be sure, if the show tackles the struggle of reconciliation and finding peace and common ground between bitter enemies, it’d have the potential to be a stellar triumph. But, I worry the heart of Roddenberry’s dream has been lost.I worry that we may never again look to the captains of the Federation as symbols of hope, of peace, of wisdom, and, of course, of discovery. Humankind finds itself in one of the most precarious positions in history. Regardless of how you feel about globalism, and its recent losses to nationalism, our climate is a troubling one. One of the longest stretches of peace in history could well fall in the coming months to a surge in prejudice and fear. Now, more than ever, we need visionaries to show us all an optimistic, cooperative way forward, or we risk losing Roddenberry’s utopian vision forever.People look to Picard, to this day, as a source of wisdom for their own lives. Patrick Stewart may have played some balding dude on TV, but the themes of the show and the way he and his crew tackled challenges, the way they wrestled with when and where to compromise their most sacred principles, and, yes, even the times they failed to live up to their own example are affecting to this day. They show that being a good person is hard, that these lessons are challenging. It takes constant vigilance to be kind when others would wish you ill, but falling back on compassion as a guide is essential. As we enter a new era, likely to be dominated by robot workers and runaway climate change, we need to show each other care. We need to show each other affection. We need to be there for one another, to support one another. Some estimates suggest that we’ll be facing 50% unemployment or more when the robots finally start entering the work force. At that point, traditional economic models collapse — no system od wealth that humans have ever use is equipped to handle that shift in structure. And we will we need radical new ideas and optimistic minds to safeguard our future. I hope, for our sake, that Discovery’s ready to answer that call to action. ‘Star Trek: Picard’ Teases Troubled Patrick StewartHow Designers Achieved the Sci-Fi Sound Magic of ‘The Orville’ last_img read more
