Harris shattered a glass ceiling, but she’ll still be held to a higher standard

Harris shattered a glass ceiling, but she’ll still be held to a higher standard

first_imgTOP COMMENTSQUOTATION“There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations much is expected. This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny.”          ~~Franklin D Roosevelt, June 27, 1936TWEET OF THE DAY BLAST FROM THE PAST- Advertisement – At Daily Kos on this date in 2008—Republican “Permanent Majority” Lasts Less Than One Presidency:A few years ago, Republican strategists were crowing about a new “permanent Republican majority”. As of last night, Republicans are a regional party with a narrowly defined ideology and abysmal support among the next generations of voters.And all it took was, you know, Republicans sucking on every conceivable level, dragging the nation into botched war efforts, corruption in the Department of Justice, and the possible collapse of our entire financial system.So… yay us, I guess. When Barack Obama was in the White House, many on both the left and the right cited the first Black president as proof that the nation had progressed significantly on racial issues. But that notion was washed away by the election of Trump, which showed that Obama’s presidency had been an aberration, not evidence of an inclusive new norm.Likewise, commentators will be tempted to Obama-ize Harris and characterize her vice presidency as evidence that women of color have arrived in a new position of power. While the political muscle of Black women is a real thing, Harris’s victory doesn’t erase the hurdles that Black women face on a regular basis.No one should forget how much sexism and racism—the combination known as misogynoir—Harris has confronted, or the unrelenting misinformation campaigns waged against her on her path to the vice presidency. No one should forget that even though the Biden-Harris pairing was ultimately victorious, millions of people voted for a president who gleefully belittled and insulted not only Harris but other high-profile women of color. No one should forget that because of ingrained stereotypes about Black women, Harris will have to tread more carefully than Biden did in the nation’s second-highest office.

Federer leads Europe to maiden Laver Cup title

Federer leads Europe to maiden Laver Cup title

first_imgOn Sunday, the winner of each rubber earned three points, against one on Friday and two on Saturday.Alexander Zverev then took Europe within sight of the trophy by beating Sam Querrey in straight sets, but world number one Rafael Nadal missed his chance as he lost to big-serving John Isner in straight sets.Sock and Isner beat Berdych and Cilic 7-6 (7/5), 7-6 (8/6) with Sock’s vicious forehand leading the charge on the American’s 25th birthday.In the day’s second rubber, a break in each set was all German youngster Zverev, the world number four, needed to beat 16th-ranked American Querrey 6-4, 6-4 in their first-ever encounter.Isner’s moment was yet to come as the world number 17 edged Nadal, this year’s French and US Open champion.Nadal lost his serve in game one with a double-fault before Isner’s errors helped him draw level in game ten, but Isner broke back at once and finished the set with the help of two second-serve aces in the last game.He then swept Nadal in the second-set tie-break after both held on to their serves.Skippered by Bjorn Borg, Team Europe also comprised Dominic Thiem, while Frances Tiafoe and Denis Shapovalov played for John McEnroe’s Team World earlier in the tournament.The organisers said Sunday Chicago would host the next edition of the Laver Cup at the United Center sitting 23,500 people on September 21-23, 2018. Share on: WhatsApp Prague, Czech Republic | AFP |  World number two Roger Federer handed Team Europe the maiden Laver Cup title after beating Team World’s Nick Kyrgios in a super tie-break thriller in Prague on Sunday.Federer, this year’s Australian Open and Wimbledon champion, won 4-6, 7-6 (8/6), 11/9 to give Team Europe an unbeatable 15-9 lead.But the 36-year-old Swiss legend struggled against the 20th-ranked, 22-year-old Australian and his flawless serve, losing the first set on a single break.When he finally broke Kyrgios halfway through set two, he yelled “Come on!” in relief, only to lose his serve again in the next game.But Federer capitalised on the system of the tournament he had founded — forcing Kyrgios into longer exchanges, he edged him in the second-set tie-break, then came back from 8-5 down in the decisive super tie-break.“I was ready to go. The boys played fantastic all weekend,” said Federer. “We knew it was going to be tough.”The start of their clash saw the controversial Kyrgios briefly kneel on the court in a gesture which sparked speculation that he was joining the ongoing protest against US President Donald Trump.A host of NFL players chose to kneel in games across the US on Sunday during the playing of American national anthem in a demonstration against racial inequality.Team Europe, the odds-on favourites with five of the world’s top seven players, entered Sunday with a 9-3 lead which narrowed as Jack Sock and John Isner beat Tomas Berdych and Marin Cilic in the opening doubles rubber.last_img read more

STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – FRIDAY DECEMBER 30, 2016

STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – FRIDAY DECEMBER 30, 2016

first_imgOUTSIDE GOOD DRAW FOR JIMMY BOUNCERJimmy Bouncer tries to remain perfect over Santa Anita’s main track when he runs in Saturday’s Grade III Midnight Lute Stakes for three-year-olds and up at 6 ½ furlongs.The five-year-old Square Eddie gelding trained by Doug O’Neill for Reddam Racing won two sprints on the dirt course in 2014.“He’s undefeated on dirt here and he landed a good post,” O’Neill said. “It’s a small field and a Grade III in our own back yard. I think he’s got a good chance.”The Midnight Lute, named for 2007 and 2008 Breeders’ Cup Sprint winner: Tough Sunday, Tyler Baze, 7-2; Solid Wager, Victor Espinoza, 8-1; St. Joe Bay, Kent Desormeaux, 9-5; Navy Hymn, Rafael Bejarano, 5-2; Jimmy Bouncer, Mario Gutierrez, 5-2. HAIL CAESAR, HALTS RUN AS TRAINER ON MONDAY            Caesar Dominguez, a mainstay among Southern California-based trainers going on four decades, will saddle his last horse Monday when he sends out Ladies Man.“That will be the last horse I’ll run for a while,” the personable and always upbeat 67-year-old El Paso native said Friday morning at Clockers’ Corner.“I don’t know if I want to say I’m retiring or I’m just taking a break, but in the meantime, I am taking a break, maybe call it semi-retired. I want to stay in racing because I love it, so I’ll try being a jockey’s agent, and if it works fine, if it doesn’t work, I still have my clients and horses in New Mexico, and I can always bring them back for Del Mar.“But as of right now, I’m going to take a break from training, but I have not talked to any jockey about taking his book. If someone comes along and looks good enough, I’ll stick around. If not, and nothing develops for two or three months and I decide I don’t want to be a jockey’s agent, I’ll resume training.“My tack and equipment will be in storage and I have six babies in New Mexico (with younger brother, Henry), so I could bring them in, but as of right now, my heart is set on being an agent. I only have two horses left. One runs today (5-2 morning line choice Really a Gem in the eighth race) and the other, Ladies Man, is entered on Monday.“I’ll give those horses to a trainer who worked with me for a long time, Walther Solis. Hopefully, whatever rider I get can ride them.”It’s not that Dominguez is hurting for money. “I just want to stay in the game and have something to do,” he said.As a trainer of quarter horses, Dominguez won more than 1,200 races and more than 100 stakes. He was that industry’s Trainer of the Year in 1989 and won seven Grade I events with Takin on the Cash, winner of the $500,000 Kindergarten that year and Sophomore Champion in 1990. Caesar’s uncles trained quarter horses in Texas and New Mexico, and he began working for them at age 10 in 1959 at Sunland Park. He moved to California in 1966.He saddled five stakes winners in 1992 at Fairplex, matching his 1991 output, and captured his first Thoroughbred training title. He tied with three others for the Fairplex crown with six wins in 1998.His first graded stakes win with a Thoroughbred came in 1993 when $10,500 yearling buy Fit To Lead won the Grade II Santa Ynez by 5 ½ lengths at 8-1 under Corey Nakatani. MIDNIGHT STORM THRIVES ON PRESSUREBreeders’ Cup Classic winner Arrogate, poised to supplant reigning king of the handicap ranks California Chrome, has been entered to face four rivals in the Grade II, $200,000 San Pasqual Stakes for four-year-olds and up at 1 1/16 miles on New Year’s Day.Whether he can match or surpass California Chrome in popularity remains to be seen, but at least one trainer opines that Arrogate may not have a walk in the park despite his 1-5 morning line odds set forth in the San Pasqual by line maker Jon White.That would be Phil D’Amato, who trains versatile speedster Midnight Storm, a graded stakes winner on turf and dirt coming off a smashing 7 ¾-length victory in the 1 1/8-mile Native Diver Stakes at Del Mar on a “good” main track Nov. 27.Midnight Storm, a six-year-old full horse by Pioneerof the Nile out of the Bertrando mare My Tina, was ridden by Mike Smith in the Native Diver, but since Smith is committed to Arrogate, Rafael Bejarano pilots Midnight Storm in the San Pasqual.“I’m going to leave it up to Rafael and go from there,” D’Amato said when asked about strategy, adding, “I’ll tell you one thing; the more pressure I put on this horse, the more he thrives. I’m expecting a big performance out of him.”The field for the San Pasqual, race eight of nine: Prospect Park, Norberto Arroyo Jr., 10-1; Accelerate, Tyler Baze, 8-1; Dalmore, Kent Desormeaux, 20-1; Midnight Storm, Rafael Bejarano, 4-1; and Arrogate, Mike Smith, 1-5. D’AMATO SEES A ‘BIG PERFORMANCE’ VS. ARROGATEMOKAT ON OUTSIDE LOOKING IN FOR AMERICAN OAKSSHIRREFFS: BOBBY FRANKEL ‘CARED FOR HIS HORSES’JIMMY BOUNCER DRAWS WELL FOR THE MIDNIGHT LUTEDOMINGUEZ TO TAKE TRAINING BREAK AFTER 39 YEARSMASSIVE TWO-DAY PICK SIX CARRYOVER HITS $361,436 MOKAT HAS THE RIGHT STUFF FOR GRADE I OAKSMokat drew the extreme outside 13 post position for Saturday’s American Oaks, but Richard Baltas feels it won’t be a major factor for the three-year-old daughter of Uncle Mo in the Grade I race scheduled for a mile and a quarter on turf.“I don’t think it’s going to hurt,” the trainer said. “If they do come down the hill it will be a little tricky. But I’m more concerned about the rain and whether she’ll like soft turf.”Mokat was wide finishing sixth in the Grade I Queen Elizabeth II Cup at Keeneland last out on Oct. 15, but won the Grade II San Clemente going a mile from post eight and was second by a half length from post nine in the one mile Jimmy Durante two years ago.“The course at Keeneland was deep but not soft,” Baltas said. “Mokat galloped well this morning going a mile on the training track, so she’s coming up to the race the right way.”The field for the Oaks: Lady Valeur, Rafael Bejarano, 15-1; Stays in Vegas, Flavien Prat, 7-2; Dreamarcher, Luis Contreras, 30-1; How Unusual, Alex Solis, 30-1; Cheekaboo, Mike Smith, 8-1; Sassy Little Lila, Luis Saez, 9-2; Decked Out, Kent Desormeaux, 4-1; Queen Blossom, Joel Rosario, 9-2; Mrs. Norris, Victor Espinoza, 30-1; Sheeza Milky Way, Brice Blanc, 12-1; Dynamic Mizzes K, Corey Nakatani, 30-1; Barleysugar, Tyler Baze, 12-1; and Mokat, Drayden Van Dyke, 6-1. CLOSING ‘BEST GAME’ FOR KERI BELLE IN SATURDAY’S FRANKELJohn Shirreffs expects Keri Belle to return to her best style when she runs in Saturday’s Grade III Robert J. Frankel Stakes scheduled for 1 1/8 miles on turf.A six-year-old daughter of the Bobby Frankel-trained Empire Maker, Keri Belle prompted the pace in the Grade II Yellow Ribbon Handicap at Del Mar last July, but otherwise has shown her best form stalking or coming from well off the pace.“She’s a closer,” Shirreffs said. “That’s her best game. When she was on the pace in the Yellow Ribbon, there wasn’t much speed in the race.”Owned and bred by Jerry and Ann Moss of Zenyatta fame, Keri Belle won the Grade III Megahertz by a nose at a mile on turf almost a year ago, on Jan. 16, 2016, but usually earns a piece of the purse with a 4-3-2 record from 19 starts.Shirreffs had the utmost respect for Frankel, who died in 2009.“My best remembrance of Mr. Frankel,” Shirreffs said, “was his absolute care of his horses. He’s a guy who really cared about their well being. That always stood out, to me.“When I would see him at the trainers’ stand at Hollywood Park, it was intimidating for me to approach him. It was like going to Mt. Olympus.”The Frankel, race four of nine: Keri Belle, Nelson Arroyo Jr., 6-1 Frenzified, Santiago Gonzalez, 6-1; Arles, Joel Rosario, 9-5; Pretty Girl, Drayden Van Dyke, 5-1; Ryans Charm, Rafael Bejarano, 4-1; Goodyearforroses, Corey Nakatani, 6-1; and Into The Mystic, Flavien Prat, 6-1. Sweet Charity was scratched. FINISH LINES: With no one hitting the Pick Six the first two days of the meet, a two-day carryover into Friday stands at a whopping $361,436.
