The price is right

first_imgUrban demographic patterns in the United States often defy logic, but a new research paper co-authored by Harvard Kennedy School Professor Edward Glaeser is shedding light on why many Americans continue to move to cities that are on the downturn.“Unhappy Cities,” published by the National Bureau for Economic Research (NBER), unpacks the myriad factors that play a role in inducing people to relocate to metropolitan areas that they would otherwise not find suitable.“Self-reported unhappiness is high in [many] declining cities, and this tendency persists even when we control for income, race, and other personal characteristics,” the authors write. “Why are the residents of some cities persistently less happy? Given that they are, why do people choose to live in unhappy places?”Detroit was unhappy even during its heyday, but its residents were well-compensated for their joylessness, according to the study. In this photo, abandoned buildings line the streets during Detroit’s financial decline. Credit: sneurgaonkar/Flickr Creative CommonsThe authors use data culled from the General Social Survey (GSS), the National Survey of Families and Households (NSFH), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to track citizens who move to areas where there are high levels of unhappiness. They also examine the ways in which urban unhappiness can be offset by the benefits that may derive from higher incomes and other amenities.The study also utilized life satisfaction survey data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), which, when controlling for demographics, rank the top four “happiest” American cities as Charlottesville, Va.; Rochester, Minn.; Lafayette, La.; and Naples, Fla. Examples of cities that are in decline and unhappy are Eire, Pa.; Scranton Pa.; and Detroit. According to the second view in the study, Detroit was unhappy even during its heyday, but historically, its residents were well-compensated for their joylessness.Glaeser and his fellow researchers report finding significant differences in well-being across American cities, and at least three examples in which unhappiness is correlated with urban decline. That said, they do not conclude that population decline itself is responsible for the unhappiness.“Differences in happiness and subjective well-being across space weakly support the view that the desires for happiness and life satisfaction do not uniquely drive human ambitions,” the authors write. “If we choose only that which maximized our happiness, then individuals would presumably move to happier places until the point where rising rents and congestion eliminated the joys of that locale. An alternative view is that humans are quite understandably willing to sacrifice both happiness and life satisfaction if the price is right. … Indeed, the residents of unhappier metropolitan areas today do receive higher real wages — presumably as compensation for their misery.”The authors also conclude that many cities with high degrees of unhappiness today were similarly situated in the past, leading the authors to deduce that citizens in previous generations may also have enjoyed higher wages and lower rents as trade-offs for remaining in unhappy cities.Glaeser is the Fred and Eleanor Glimp Professor of Economics in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University. He is director of the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston at Harvard Kennedy School.last_img read more

The Goods: Fly Gear

first_img “Most of us who are on the water every day go with Simms waders,” said Joe DiPietro, of North Georgia Trout Fishing. “They are the Cadillac of waders. Spend the money now and you’ll have a pair of waders for life.” Dr. Slick XBC Mitten Scissor Clamps, $23 Fly fishers are gear people. There  are closets full of rods, reels, tools and tying materials. Boxes of flies, acquired long ago for a particular stream and season, wait forgotten in the pocket of an old vest. All of it has, or had, a purpose. Yet there are certain items that always make the cut during pre-trip packing. To identify those indispensable pieces of gear, we spoke to fishing guides around the region. These guys make their living on the water every day, and here are the items they wouldn’t go fishing without. Echo Dry Fly Rods, $230 “We’re gonna need a bigger net” is not necessarily a bad thing to hear. But that need won’t exist with Fishpond’s Nomad Boat Net on board. Greg Williams, of Cumberland Bottom Ticklers in Kentucky, uses his Nomad to net every trout he catches on the Cumberland tailrace. He said it’s easier on tippets and trout.  With a length of 55 inches and a 24.75-inch x 16-inch head, this net has good reach and can handle fish up to 30 inches and longer. It has a bag depth of 14 inches. Williams likes Nomads because they are lightweight and float like a cork. Composite construction also keeps them from getting too hot in summer or too cold in winter. Fishpond Nomad Boat Net, $240 Everyone knows polarized lenses cut glare so you can see into the water. Reilly said Smith lenses also provide excellent clarity, and copper is a good all-around color enhancement that sharpens contrast to reveal the shadows and subtle movements that betray fish against a mottled streambed. He even keeps a couple pairs in the boat box so clients can see what he sees. The replaceable rubber net is gentle on fish and doesn’t tangle in tippets. Clackacraft 16’ Weight Forward, $9,495 Top Regional Guides Dish On Indispensable Gear That’s pretty high praise from a guy with a rap sheet for abuse of fishing gear. Simms waders do cost more, but DiPietro said it’s worth it in the long run because they’ll last longer and because the company stands behind its waders. The Simms repair and replacement policy is one of the best in the industry. After declaring everything on his boat essential, Rocky Cox, of Rocky Top Anglers in Knoxville, Tenn., settled on the boat itself as one item he couldn’t do without. He fishes Tennessee tailwaters, where low flows make for a shallow, rocky ride down the river. His fiberglass Clackacraft has the maneuverability and durability to navigate waters that would shred some driftboats. “The thing with a Clackacraft is they’re so darn tough,” he said. “They handle rocks really well, and I wouldn’t row anything else.” Scraping bottom is unavoidable, but avoiding collisions saves a lot of wear and tear on a hull. Agility is a big part of what makes Clackacraft one of the most popular driftboats on the market.Cox said his boat rides high with a shallow draft and that it planes out better than other driftboats. He said his boat’s performance makes it as much fun to row as it is to fish from. Chasing musky, smallmouths and trout can be a visual endeavor. Many times you must see a fish to make it eat. That’s why guide Matt Reilly views sunglasses as one of the most important tools in the boat. Right now, he’s wearing a pair of Smith Guide’s Choice glasses with copper-colored lenses. He said they’re the best he’s found for seeing into the shallow cobble-bottom rivers of southwest Virginia. Simms G3 Guide Wading Boots, $250 Dr. Slick has elevated your handy hemostats into a multi-purpose tool that’s easier to use and reduces the amount of metal jangling from your vest. Eugene Shuler, of Fly Fishing The Smokies in Bryson City, N.C., said Dr. Slick’s Mitten Scissor Clamps are a tool he keeps on hand for a variety of uses, whether he’s floating the Tuckasegee or exploring high-elevation speck streams. “It’s easier to deal with when you’ve got cold, wet hands,” Shuler said. “And it’s one little lightweight tool that takes the place of several others.” Dr. Slick replaced the standard finger-loop system with a spring-loaded squeeze-and-go ratchet release, which means there’s no finger-fumbling when there’s a fish in the net. Serrated scissors behind the jaws take the place of nippers, and there’s also a pin for cleaning hook eyes.  With outstanding ankle support and designed for improved underfoot feel, G3 boots are intended to keep you upright and safe when wading. Available with both felt and Vibram soles to suit preferences, these boots also feature integrated plates for installing cleats. They’ll be just as comfortable during a long hike in as they are gripping boulders in a waist-deep run. Smith Guide’s Choice Sunglasses (copper lens), $179 DiPietro said the company’s top-of-the-line G4 waders are solid, but he prefers the G3s without the bells and whistles. Durability is the result of strategically placed reinforcement, meticulous craftsmanship and design that places seams where they are less likely to split. The Echo Dry lineup consists of 2- through 6-weight rods. They are all 9-foot, medium-fast action, 4-piece rods that are feather-light at about 3 ounces. “You can’t beat them for durability and support,” he said. Dave Breitmeier was surprised by the performance when a friend let him test-drive an Echo rod. Since then, he’s added several Echos to his arsenal and prefers them to many rods that have a much higher price point. Breitmeier fishes Echo Dry 2- or 3-weight rods while wading West Virginia’s Elk River, where he guides. He said it’s a good dry fly rod, and it’s also got enough backbone and power to cast streamers and nymphs. The 9-foot length provides reach for high sticking, and Breitmeier said he doesn’t hesitate to add weight to get nymphs down, which can become unmanageable with many light rods. The frames were designed for anglers with wide temples and an aggressive wrap to comfortably protect from both sunlight and errant casts. “It’s a lot of fun, and you’re not locked into a particular style of fishing,” he said. “This is just a great stick, man, especially for the money.” It seems a lot of guides are loyal to Simms wading gear. When we told guide John Schablein that someone had already reviewed Simms waders for us, he went straight to the boots. Simms G3 Guide Waders Stocking Foot, $550 Fishing out of Charlottesville, Va., Schablein and the rest of the crew at Albermarle Angler guide on a wide variety of waters statewide. Whether he’s scrambling up the North Fork of the Moormans for brookies or floating the Shenandoah for musky, he’ll be wearing a pair of Simms G3 Guide Wading Boots. last_img read more

GOP gerrymandering may grow even more extreme in the coming decade thanks to the Supreme Court

first_imgRepublicans have argued in several ongoing cases over uncounted absentee ballots that this clause only empowers the state legislature itself. That claim would exclude all those who hold the power to set or interpret laws under state constitutions, such as state courts, voters (via the ballot initiative process), or potentially even governors when they exercise their veto powers.The Supreme Court rejected this radical interpretation of the Elections Clause in a 5-4 ruling in 2015 that upheld the right of Arizona voters to strip their Republican-run legislature of the power to draw new maps through a 2000 ballot initiative that established an independent redistricting commission. However, two of the justices in the majority in that ruling, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Anthony Kennedy, are no longer on the court and have since been replaced by justices much further to the right.Chief Justice John Roberts wrote an angry dissent in the Arizona case and was joined by Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas, all of whom of course still serve on the court. Neil Gorsuch, meanwhile, has signaled that he would accept this unfounded legal theory in a pending case over late-counted mail ballots in Pennsylvania, and Brett Kavanaugh appears likely to join his nihilistic colleagues. Amy Coney Barrett hasn’t weighed in on the issue only because she didn’t have time to do so before Election Day.- Advertisement – If the Supreme Court does hold that only literal state legislatures may set federal election laws absent congressional intervention, independent redistricting commissions enacted by initiatives placed on the ballot by ordinary citizens could get struck down in Arizona, California, and Michigan. It would also eliminate the possibility of setting up independent commissions through future initiatives in states like Arkansas, Florida, Oklahoma, and more.The court could even go further and strip governors of their ability to veto new redistricting plans, if indeed only “legislatures”—free from gubernatorial involvement—can determine how elections are run. Such a move would disproportionately benefit Republicans, since it would bar many more Democratic governors in states with Republican-run legislatures (such as Louisiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin) from blocking new gerrymanders than vice versa.Should this most extreme state of affairs come to pass, the only solution for Democrats would be to win control of more legislatures, but they’d be fighting on gerrymandered maps deliberately tilted against them.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – The Supreme Court isn’t the only threat, though, and it remains unclear just how much damage Donald Trump has done to corrupt the accuracy of the 2020 census. Let’s delve into each of these areas, including the options Democrats have left for fighting back.The court’s most wide-reaching impact could come if it upends a bedrock of two centuries of federalism by accepting an extreme and unprecedented view of the U.S. Constitution’s “Elections Clause.” That clause, found in Article I, Section IV, gives the “legislature” in each state the power to set the “times, places, and manner of holding” federal elections—though it adds that Congress “may at any time make or alter such regulations”—which is why, for instance, there’s a federal law from the 19th century setting a uniform date for congressional elections.- Advertisement – The second grim scenario, which is the likeliest to transpire, would largely impact gerrymandering in states Republicans already control. Specifically, the Supreme Court could eviscerate the rest of the Voting Rights Act (VRA) by invalidating Section Two of the VRA’s ban on laws that have a discriminatory effect on voters. Chief Justice John Roberts has in fact spent his four-decade career in Washington trying to do just that, and he now has five allies on the bench—and only four are needed.The court may gut Section Two either by finding it unconstitutional or by making its test for showing discriminatory impacts impossible to satisfy, the latter of which it could do in an Arizona voting case  it will hear next year. That would eliminate the requirement stretching back three decades that maps be drawn to create districts where voters belonging to racial and ethnic minorities, like Blacks and Latinos, can elect their chosen candidates. Republicans could gain perhaps as many as a dozen more congressional seats, concentrated largely in the South, and the impact on certain state legislatures would be even more dramatic.Lastly, the Supreme Court could make GOP gerrymandering worse by allowing Republicans to draw districts based solely on the eligible voter population instead of the total overall population, which has been the longstanding norm. Not only is the eligible voter pool whiter, it also excludes children, noncitizens, and potentially even some of the 5 million Americans disenfranchised due to felony convictions.Using the voter population would make Republican gerrymandering more potent in several key states such as Texas, where communities with large Latino populations that lean Democratic are typically much younger and have many more noncitizen immigrants than whiter communities with fewer children.Furthermore, people disenfranchised due to felony convictions are disproportionately Black and concentrated in Southern states such as Mississippi, which bans one in six Black citizens from voting for life, three times the rate of whites. A 2019 expose of leaked documents confirmed that Republicans have been plotting to bring this change about, and the Supreme Court did not eliminate the possibility in a 2016 ruling.However, one key wrinkle in this plan is that the Supreme Court refused to let Trump place a citizenship question on the census last year. Trump subsequently ordered the Census Bureau to use existing administrative records to match citizenship data from other sources with the granular type of census data needed for redistricting. However, Joe Biden could block the release of such data, and litigation over it appears likely.But even if citizenship data is unobtainable for redistricting, age data won’t be, and the full adult population is still whiter than the total population, especially in places like Texas. However, Trump has also tried to sabotage the accuracy of the census by rushing an incomplete count, the damage from which is yet unknown.Despite all this, Democrats and reformers still have a number of ways to fight back. The most important target right now is to win two Jan. 5 runoffs for the Senate in Georgia, which would split the chamber at 50 seats apiece. If, as looks likely, Joe Biden wins the presidency, Kamala Harris could break ties as vice president.Should that come to pass, Democrats could eliminate the filibuster and pass legislation in Congress to ban congressional gerrymandering by mandating independent commissions in every state. They could also reform the Supreme Court in a variety of different ways, including by adding more seats.Options also remain at the state level for as long as the Supreme Court’s hardliners back away from the ledge and don’t blow up the foundation of federalism. In a silver lining, voters in Arkansas, Florida, and North Dakota all rejected GOP-backed ballot measures this year that would have made future progressive ballot measures much harder, if not impossible. Arkansas and North Dakota, meanwhile, were poised to vote on redistricting reform measures in 2020 before GOP-dominated courts threw them off the ballot, so future efforts this decade could yet succeed.But this year’s elections have already brought dire news even if worst-case scenarios don’t come to pass. After a lost decade following 2010 in which Republicans repeatedly won control of key states such as Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin despite Democrats winning more votes, Republican minority rule is becoming self-entrenching in many states. 2020 was a key opportunity to level the redistricting playing field in many states and protect majority rule, but Republican wins have ended those hopes.Yet even if the Supreme Court does take this country down the darkest possible paths, all hope is not lost. Examples abound of countries bringing democracy back from the brink, including a recent one nearby.Last year, millions of citizens in Chile organized massive street protests amid widespread discontent triggered in part by a Supreme Court that kept thwarting the country’s left-of-center governments. These protests led to a peaceful revolution that culminated last month with Chileans voting to write a new constitution.Americans still have other avenues for redress, but whatever conclusions we draw from them, this week’s election showed that our country remains home to a majority that believes in democracy and wants to see the will of the people honored.last_img read more

Leicester need to ‘reset mentally’ to reach Champions League, says Rodgers

first_img“I know we have a very young group, a young squad that is developing, but if you want to consistently compete at the very top end of this table it is a mindset,” said Leicester boss Rodgers.”I think we have shown over the course of the season we have got the talent but there is no doubt that we have to have a reset mentally if we are going to go and achieve what we want to achieve.”Rodgers said his team were still in a “fantastic” position.”We have been terrific for a lot of the season,” he said. “Our level has been high and somehow we need to work our way back to that.” Everton took an early two-goal lead at Goodison Park through Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson, who scored from the penalty spot.Kelechi Iheanacho pulled one back for Leicester after the break but the visitors could not find an equaliser despite applying plenty of pressure.For Everton it was a result that maintained their late charge for a Europa League spot. With seven points from their past three games, Carlo Ancelotti’s side have seventh place in their sights.Everton defender Michael Keane felt beating Leicester was a declaration of intent.”We want to get into Europe and this was a must-win,” said Keane.”I don’t think we showed our full quality on the ball,” he added. “But the game was all about the result and we’ll take that all day.”Topics : Brendan Rodgers says Leicester need to “reset mentally” to stay in charge of their Champions League destiny after their slump continued with a 2-1 loss at Everton.The Foxes remain third in the Premier League but are fading, claiming just two points from their three games since the Premier League resumed.They were fortunate fourth-placed Chelsea failed to take advantage, also losing on Wednesday, but in-form Manchester United and Wolves are just three points behind with six games to play.last_img read more
