Life in Park City Utah

Park City, Utah. January 21, 2019.

Park City has been receiving many feet of snow these past weeks. This video was taken out front of The Eating Establishment on the top of Main Street Park City. A tow truck pulling a semi that is stuck and lo and behold, a skier comes down at the perfect time. It is not uncommon to see this when the conditions are present. Though usually, the trucks don't get stuck.

The Viral Video of Native American Man and Teen

Video released earlier this week shows a different side of the encounter between a Native American and a group of teens from a Catholic school in Kentucky.

The initial video seemed to display teens appearing to mock a group of Native Americans. It  drew widespread condemnation. But were those who condemned, too early to judge?

A fuller picture emerged on Sunday of the videotaped encounter between a Native American man and a throng of high school boys wearing “Make America Great Again” gear outside the Lincoln Memorial in Washington.

Interviews and additional video footage reveal that an explosive convergence of race, religion and ideological beliefs — against a national backdrop of political tension — set the stage for the viral moment. Early video excerpts from the encounter obscured the larger context, inflaming outrage.

Leading up to the encounter on Friday, a rally for Native Americans and other Indigenous people was wrapping up. Dozens of students from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky, who had been in Washington for the March for Life rally, were standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, many of them white and wearing apparel bearing the slogan of President Trump.

There were also black men who identified themselves as Hebrew Israelites, preaching their beliefs and shouting racially combative comments at the Native Americans and the students, according to witnesses and video on social media.

Soon, the Native American man, Nathan Phillips, 64, walked towards and encircled himself by an animated group of high school boys. He beat a ceremonial drum as a boy wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat stood inches away. The boy identified himself in a statement released on Sunday night as Nick Sandmann, a junior.

Yogati - Eli Marcus - Album Sampler

Popular singer Eli Marcus is debuting a new album and the title track "Yogati" actually personifies his soaring career.

The album was produced by Marcus' cousin Mendy Friedman, who produced his previous album "Energy." For this project, Marcus took a different route, using multiple composers and arrangers.

Some of the choices are more original, such as "Tzadik," which was composed by Eli Marcus' brother Shmueli Marcus of 8th Day fame. Another song, "B'chol Koichoi," is by a talented musician named Shloimy Salzman and is his first recorded composition. Two songs were composed by Mordechai Brezel, who has written hits for Yaakov Shwekey and Simcha Leiner.

Others are classic, with compositions and arrangements by veteran songwriters Moshe Laufer, Pinky Weber, and Yitzy Waldner, and warm "hartzige" compositions and arrangements from the multi-talented Avrumi Berko.

Album will be avalible next week iy"h
