A WIN IN THE U.S.  SIXTH CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS. On August 18, 2014 in Nifadev v. Holder, (Case No. 13-3704/4222
6th Cir. 2014), the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit held that Mikheil B. Nifadev has proven his claim that he
had suffered persecution by reason of his Russian ethnicity at the hands of the security and regular police of Uzbekistan.   The
Court vacated the decision of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) in Washington, D.C. which had denied Mr. Nifadev asylum,
and the Court remanded the case with additional instructions to the United States Attorney General, including that the BIA should
determine whether the BIA should also reconsider its denial of Nifadev’s application for withholding of removal and protection
under Convention Against Torture (abbreviated CAT for Convention Against Torture And Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading
Treatment or Punishment of the United Nations) in light of the opinion of the Court.  The Sixth Circuit opinion essentially and
explicitly held that
"[b]ecause the IJ [Immigration Judge] appears to have erred in her determination that Nifadev did not suffer
past persecution and because the IJ clearly misinterpreted Nifadev’s credible testimony regarding the ethnic animus of the
Uzbekistan security officials, we find that Nifadev has made out a credible case of being a refugee under the definitions of
8 U.S.C. § 1158(b)(1)(A)."
 [Emphasis added].   The United States Immigration Court in Cleveland, Ohio, had initially
found Mr.  Nifadev and his witnesses to be credible but declined to grant asylum because it erroneously determined that
Mr. Nifadev had NOT suffered persecution.   Shown in photograph on the right is Mr. Mikheil B. Nifadev with Charleston
C. K. Wang, Esq.  who represented Mr. Nifadev during trial and both appeals. To read complete opinion, please

Pursuant to the Sixth Circuit opinion, the BIA on January 5, 2015, ordered the Immigration Court to grant asylum to Mr. Nifadev.

Some Moo Moo Ruminations on Assault Style Rifles

On October 1, 2017, Stephen Craig Paddock, a 64-year-old Nevada resident, after secretly
hauling 23 rifles and one handgun to a room on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay Resort in
Las Vegas, opened fire on concert-goers below.  He killed 58 and wounded 851 (were
some of the injured trampled?).  He was the lone shooter and he could only fire one rifle at
a time. The other 22 stayed on the floor or wherever.   1 or 23 rifles do not determine the
number of victims.  A new or well maintained modern rifle seldom malfunctions and even if
one does, a second rifle will continue killing.  No need for 23 - the man was going out of
his mind.  So what killed and wounded so many people?

HE HAD THOUSANDS OF ROUNDS OF AMMUNITION!  Official sources state that he fired
over 1100 rounds although the exact number is not published.  Assuming a hit rate of 1 in
3 shots, he must have fired close to 3000 rounds.  Even if he was an expert shooter, he
had to fire 900 rounds.   He shot from 300-400 yards and at that range the 5.56 mm bullet is
not expected to pass through a victim - indeed the anti-personnel soft nose bullet is
designed to flatten or fragment upon impact and the pieces will "bounce" inside the body
to cause maximum shock.  If some of the injured were trampled so fewer rounds perhaps.  
Although he made trajectory drawings to increase accuracy, it was impossible to have a
1:1 hit ratio because the shooter loosened automatic fire at some distance on a outdoor
gathering of 20,000.   We now know that he had semi-automatic “civilian” rifles of both .223
(5.56mm NATO) and .308 (7.62mm NATO) calibers.  Furthermore, he used bump-stocks to
convert the AR-15 type .223 rifles to automatic fire.  The AR-15 type rifles are based on the
design of the military M-16 rifle which is quite capable of selective automatic fire of 600
rounds per minute.

As the crowd began to scatter, he likely switched to semi-automatic mode.  By then the
crowd were running and hiding some among the bodies and so were even harder to hit.   
After it was all over, investigators found another 1600 rounds in the trunk of his car.  
Another 19 firearms were found in his home.

An U. S. infantry rifleman normally carries into a firefight 7 magazines of 5.56 mm NATO for
his or her M-16.  Each magazine holds 30 rounds = 210 rounds basic combat load.   Larger
capacity magazines are deemed unwieldy and difficult to fire prone.  Reloading an AR-15
style rifle by changing pre-loaded magazines or even using 10 round stripper-clips to load
the magazine is simple and quick.  The typical police officer carries a loaded semi-
automatic pistol with 2 extra magazines totaling around 40-50 rounds.  Statistically, a
“gunfight” involving police officers is at close quarters (say 1-5 yards), involve less than
ten rounds fired and is over in a few seconds.  Unfortunately, a lone officer approaching in
his or her police cruiser or on foot is tactically "outgunned" by a determined rifleman
armed with an AR-15 and carrying hundreds of rounds of 5.56mm or even quite possibly a
battle rifle chambered for 7.62 mm NATO rounds.  It is interesting to note that the larger
7.62 mm cartridge was discarded for general infantry use because its heavier recoil made
the rifle difficult to control especially in automatic select fire
and troops complained about
the weight of the 7.62 mm battle rifles, especially when operating in difficult terrain.  The
Las Vegas shooter had both calibers in his room.

Ammunition whether 5.56 mm or 7.62 mm at close range will penetrate the sides of
approaching police (civilian) vehicles (and also many non-military body armor).  The
average distance of fire-fights between infantry troops is up to ranges of 200 yards
(although recent urban combat experience may lower the fighting distance).  Assault rifles
are designed for that statistic in mind with sliding rear “iron-sights” elevating usually out
to a "maximum effective range” of 600 yards (the Las Vegas shooter was killing people at
around 500 yards albeit shooting from the 32nd floor).  One can imagine the
carnage the

Not This; But What?
Reflections on Life In the Turn Lane
by Beverley Jones
March 17, 2018

Could it be that we’re getting the hang of how to live through these contentious times?   I’ve just returned from a community breakfast where a panel discussed ‘what it means to be human’.  Led by
broadcaster Krista Tippit, more than one hundred of us listened to Old Testament scholar Walter Brueggemann, Islamic scholar Dr. Waleed El-Ansary, and Rabbi Abie Ingbar reflect on how the depth
and origins of our three mono-theistic religions resonate in these times of disintegration. The fact that we all were there, thinking together about something other than the precarious state of the nation
felt remarkable.

It is stark to be living in these “between” times – aware of what used to be, seeing the injustice and antagonisms of the present, and stimulated by new visions of how our lives together could  – and
very well might be – in the future.  As we connect to the world through our digital portals, we get some sense of this temporal churning, but too often get stuck in a present defined by the media’s
love of conflict and commentary on minutia.  It seems to me we’ve created three sub-cultures based on these temporal perspectives: past, present and future. The trick of staying sane may lie in the
attempt to balance these views. More and more I’m aware of the deep caring and connection people have for their personal viewpoint. Letting go seems to cause great pain.

My “alter ego”, Wendell Berry, is a case in point.  I was excited to learn that he has a new book out, The Art of Loading Brush– I had missed connecting with his wisdom.  Yet, I am disappointed to read
that he, like many of us, seems to be “stuck” in the “way things were”.  He refers to how his wife Tanya describes himself,  “Tanya Berry, my wife, says that my principal asset as a writer has been my
knack for repeating myself.” Anyone who has read much of Berry knows the truth of her observation, yet that repetition has exposed us “city folk” to an alternative way to live and see the world.   Berry
describes an allegiance to the land and the communities it creates.  He has become a spokesperson for a movement toward acquiring simpler, more humane ways to live than our industrialized,
competitive, monetized economy, which harms the land as well as community.  For me his viewpoint has been hugely instructive; I have always craved Berry’s lived knowledge and his descriptions of
community – comforted that someone actually lives that way! Jaber Crow is my all-time favorite novel.

So I delighted in this new continuation of his work…for about 102 pages.  Then I began to miss some connection to the present, to the world the rest of us actually live in.  I’m now on page 159 and
haven’t found it yet.  That’s not Berry’s fault.  I need to make these connections myself.  I’ve needed his understanding as a framework in which to put the possible comparisons between then and now.  
Just as watching movies of the 50’s an 60’s reminds me how stifling the world was for women of that – my – period.

Berry, my contemporary, is just one example of holding onto “the past”.  I have friends who readily dwell on what they did as children – games played, values taught, communal gatherings.  I have to
dig really deep to connect to my childhood’s culture.  I’m more of a “present” person: I see what’s happening now and am drawn to reflection on the consequences of decisions being made: most often
against Berry’s agrarian world, against spiritual values, against justice.  Frustration often accompanies this perspective just as comfort seems to salve dwellers of the “past”.

Some of us live in the future. The founders of the electric car, Tesla, and the new SpaceX rocket, come to mind.  They envision what the world would be like if…...  In addition to the fascinating
‘hardware’ of these entrepreneurs we have social “futurists” – people who dream of other ways for us to live together – abolitionists, civil rights pioneers, feminists and now those creating anti-violence
social movements to eliminate gun violence and sexual harassment.

Our culture seems to be taking giant leaps into the future, stepping over traditions and snail-paced evolution.  Donald Trump is showing us that we don’t have to do things the way we’ve always done
them.  I remember Steve Jobs saying in an interview that once he figured out that he didn’t have to follow the tenets of the past he was free to invent.  Because of our present topsy-turvy government
we now are free to invent, to create new ways to be together, to let go of the past as prologue. - Thanks, Donald, for showing us how not to do things. -  Oh, please let us learn this lesson.

STEM OR PS?
Reflections on Life In the Turn Lane
by Beverly Jones  May 12, 2018

I guess it’s my antipathy to our current political/cultural system, that has pushed me to look elsewhere – I just can’t stand what I see of what’s happening these days. Wowee!  What I’ve found instead
is mind shattering – so now I have something new to contemplate.  Which is better/ or worse: boredom and disgust or awe and fear?   Whatever happened to equilibrium?  I guess I’m being pushed into
mindfulness, prayer and meditation, because I’m surely not finding an environment that will foster peace, equanimity or wholeness. Eek! Now it’s a new dilemma: I’m beginning to incorporate the ideas
and language of the future-talk that’s seeping into our present.

My first encounter was with Thomas Edsall’s “Industrial Revolutions Are Political Wrecking Balls” in last week’s New York Times.  What his sources describe as the future answers many of my questions
about ‘what’s going to happen’. Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, …described the fourth industrial revolution in Davos in January 2016: “We stand on the brink of a technological
revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before.”1

Automation, IT, artificial intelligence, robots, etc. are multiplying at exponential rates: “Job losses will appear as accelerating trends. Over time, (driverless?) trucks driving in dedicated lanes will appear
on the roads and in multiple news stories. Increased numbers of people will be working side-by-side with robots. When a media story describes an AI-induced layoff in occupation, other persons in that
occupation will assume they are also at risk. These developments will occur against a backdrop of monopoly-like firms like Alphabet (Google), Amazon, Apple, Microsoft and Facebook.” 1Frank Levy

Of course there will be an increasing  economic gap between those who create these new technological “marvels” and those whose jobs will disappear. Likewise this scenario is ripe for the rise of
“populist, nativist” politicians – more Trumps. But designer medicines and personalized treatments will also be possible.  The upending of the world as we know it seems to be on the visible horizon.
This video of the Fourth Industrial Revolution says it all.  find it truly breath-taking, overwhelmingly so.

I can see how young people would be excited about these possibilities as they think about future careers.  Surely STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) is winning the day.  Will there be
courses in how these whizzes of the future will be able to talk with their parents and relatives on Thanksgiving?  If social media has been isolating, what will occupations in these new endeavors
produce  Looks to me that we are on the way to developing two worlds: the fourth industrial revolution and whatever we call the soft, people, relational aspects of our human lives, which I’m calling PS
(people stuff).   Richard Rohr is writing about human relationship this week and develops some ideas of human spiritual development from Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.2

I’ve certainly had the experience of working with a team or group that evolves into a new “being” – which functions as one, where this “…new being (the Third Self, or the team, itself) allowed each
member to find a fuller identity and capacity within that team.”2   It’s a thrilling experience….and rather rare.  But maybe that’s what this human world can be like in the Fourth Industrial Revolution –
maybe this will be a human revolution as well:  “Love is the most powerful force or energy in the universe. That power is multiplied in relationships. Love’s potency is released most powerfully among
people who have formed a relationship (a union). People who truly unite for a purpose beyond themselves become “differentiated” as they unite and work together in a shared consciousness to
achieve their larger purpose.”2

It would be nice if we could value both worlds equally – but, if we are true to form, the People Stuff will not have much market appeal, so our authors, painters, philosophers, psychologists, teachers,
ministers, care-takers, etc. will ride in an economic back-seat.  I hear rumors of a general, guaranteed income as a way to deal with the inevitable gap of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.  The “haves”
may not take kindly to being pestered by the “have-nots”.  More and more I see the value of “living one day at a time”, where the problems created by the designed world and the opportunities for
greater in-depth People Stuff could meaningfully fill up one’s day. I do worry, though, that our contemporary young people may not get the guidance necessary to consider these two worlds so they
can make realistic, meaningful choices.  It’s probably not that worrying: trying to prepare for the future may continue to be as complex and confusing as it was for most of us.

NEVER GIVE IN, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER -
When Winston Churchill re-visited Harrow on October 29, 1941, he discovered that
an additional verse had been added to a school song:

"Not less we praise in darker days
The leader of our nation,
And Churchill's name shall win acclaim
From each new generation.
For you have power in danger's hour
Our freedom to defend, Sir!
Though long the fight we know that right
Will triumph in the end, Sir!"

'Almost a year has passed since I came down here at your Head Master's kind invitation
in order to cheer myself and cheer the hearts of a few of my friends by singing some of
our own songs. The ten months that have passed have seen very terrible catastrophic
events in the world - ups and downs, misfortunes - but can anyone sitting here this
afternoon, this October afternoon, not feel deeply thankful for what has happened in
the time that has passed and for the very great improvement in the position of our
country and of our home? Why, when I was here last time we were quite alone,
desperately alone, and we had been so for five or six months. We were poorly armed.
We are not so poorly armed today; but then we were very poorly armed. We had the
unmeasured menace of the enemy and their air attack still beating upon us, and you
yourselves had had experience of this attack; and I expect you are beginning to feel
impatient that there has been this long lull with nothing particular turning up!

But we must learn to be equally good at what is short and sharp and what is long and
tough. It is generally said that the British are often better at the last. They do not expect
to move from crisis to crisis; they do not always expect that each day will bring up some
noble chance of war; but when they very slowly make up their minds that the thing has to
be done and the job put through and finished, then, even if it takes months - if it takes
years - they do it.

Another lesson I think we may take, just throwing our minds back to our meeting here
ten months ago and now, is that appearances are often very deceptive, and as Kipling
well says, we must "...meet with Triumph and Disaster. And treat those two impostors
just the same."

You cannot tell from appearances how things will go. Sometimes imagination makes
things out far worse than they are; yet without imagination not much can be done.
Those people who are imaginative see many more dangers than perhaps exist; certainly
many more than will happen; but then they must also pray to be given that extra courage
to carry this far-reaching imagination. But for everyone, surely, what we have gone
through in this period - I am addressing myself to the School - surely from this period of
ten months this is the lesson:
never give in, never give in, never, never, never, - in
nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honour
and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might
of the enemy.
We stood all alone a year ago, and to many countries it seemed that our
account was closed, we were finished. All this tradition of ours, our songs, our School
history, this part of the history of this country, were gone and finished and liquidated.
Very different is the mood today. Britain, other nations thought, had drawn a sponge across her slate. But instead our country stood in
the gap. There was no flinching and no thought of giving in; and by what seemed almost a miracle to those outside these Islands, though
we ourselves never doubted it, we now find ourselves in a position where I say that we can be sure that we have only to persevere to
conquer.You sang here a verse of a School Song: you sang that extra verse written in my honour, which I was very greatly complimented
by and which you have repeated today. But there is one word in it I want to alter - I wanted to do so last year, but I did not venture to.
It is the line: "Not less we praise in darker days."

I have obtained the Head Master's permission to alter darker to sterner. "Not less we praise in sterner days."  Do not let us speak of darker
days: let us speak rather of sterner days. These are not dark days; these are great days - the greatest days our country has ever lived; and
we must all thank God that we have been allowed, each of us according to our stations, to play a part in making these days memorable in
the history of our race.'

Young Winston went to Harrow School upon narrowly passing the entrance exams in 1888 and studied there until he was admitted to Sandhurst in
1893 after 3 attempts.  After a checkered  political career, and personal battle with the "black dog," i.e. depression, Churchill went on to become
Prime Minister of the United Kingdom twice - 1940-1945 and 1951-1955.

Then the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there
came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Divided
tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled
with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.
