"...Filmmakers Steve Metze and Don Swaynos will be in attendance at a special Austin Film Festival sponsored screening of Year at Danger (Danger was the name of Metze's basecamp in Iraq) on Thursday, June 12, 7:30pm at the Regal Arbor Cinema (9828 Great Hills Trail). The event is free for AFF members and $4 for the general public..."

"...Hole in the Wall, a live music venue in the heart of the University of Texas campus providing stomping ground for underground Austin acts and a bar for underdressed patrons, is in danger of closing when its lease expires in December, potentially ending a historic 41-year run...."

"..."This absolutely puts transgender children in danger," says Noriega. "The state has to protect transgender children the same way they would other vulnerable students..."
"...Instead of arresting her he arrested her son, who rotted in prison for years only because his mother wrote poetry. She bore all this, not to mention the constant danger and purges and violence all around her, with a dignity and integrity that are a constant tonic to me..."
"...Celia Israel, D-Austin, to pass HB 3488, which would afford de-accredited medics a chance to have their hearings heard before the State Office of Administrative Hearings. (Hinchey has opposed the bill, saying that it takes the decision out of the medical director's hands and gives SOAH the chance to "render an opinion that could potentially force me to put back into practice someone I think is a danger to the public." On April 22, he introduced a peer review system that would allow an appointed team of medics to anonymously peruse the facts of each credentialing review.)..."
"...And there's trickery in readings, for a good performer can easily make mediocre work sound fine.) Poetry is poor by nature, for there's no money to be made; resistant to media -- there's nothing rarer than a good film about a poet, much less about a poem; a shape-changer, existing in so many forms; without the audience-friendly comforts of a plot; with no recourse to special effects; and requiring, both to compose and to experience, the two qualities hardest to find in modern life, patience and time. A poem exists all on its own, with no strength but the skill with which it's done and the love it comes from and the love it invokes you. In her poem "The Angel of History" Carolyn Forche has written: "Surely all art is the result of one's having been in danger, of having gone through an experience all the way to the end." That is all the secret strength a poem can claim: its defiance of the danger at the heart of being alive..."
"...AC: Did you know early that you wanted to be a journalist – and not the desk kind? And when you kept returning to Congo, after witnessing terrible atrocities and experiencing close calls with death, how did you rationalize it to your family (and even to yourself)? Do you feel a moral responsibility to report? Is there a danger-seeking compulsion there at all?..."
"...On to the Fifth Amendment: "No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."..."
"...The danger isn't what strikes me. Danger is ever-present..."
"...A proud trust in the unassailable worth of our creations generated the world we now live in -- a world that our creations have made more dangerous than even Mary imagined. She tells us we have no right to illusions of innocence, for the danger is not alien; the danger originated in us..."
"...(The real Clyde and Bonnie were homely, ignorant sociopaths.) The film's fashionable murderers were fashionably murdered – in slow motion, yet. But Dunaway's performance let us all know that Bonnie was more dangerous than Clyde...."
"...Not that there aren't the usual political shenanigans and danger signs -- above all, the administration's attempt to control information must be watched and resisted. But even this requires a little perspective: Woodrow Wilson encouraged an utterly senseless pogrom against American socialists and pacifists during the First World War, Franklin Roosevelt signed on to incarcerating Japanese-Americans in the Second World War, and Lincoln suspended habeas corpus when it suited him in the Civil War..."

"...The jurors didn't think long on Masterson's intentions, finding him guilty of capital murder. During the punishment phase, a litany of witnesses were brought out to testify to Masterson's violent past – including accusations of domestic violence and reported incidents while incarcerated – and the jury ruled that he represented a future danger to society..."
"...For more than a decade, derivatives, hailed proudly as an American invention, were hugely profitable (again, no space to cite why). Those – like former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker – who said derivatives were dangerous were shouted down as killjoys who just didn't get it..."

"...Dufault's tale of love, bravado, and cockfighting understands the consequences of its actions. Its deeply damaged characters, both human and avian, seem unable to alter their trajectories toward inevitable demise – knowingly or not, they are a danger to themselves..."
"...Most of the savings will come through 12 job eliminations, nine of them from the "re-engineering" of the Capital Improvements Program. Despite the loss, PWTD expects to complete 80% of its capital projects on time, up from 78% last year. Two of the other jobs slated for elimination will come from the transportation division, and the result, says Kite, will be a slowed response time to public calls for new or repaired signs or signals, and possibly an increased danger to motorists and pedestrians..."
"...The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals affirmed the sentencing in April 2010. Chanthakoummane filed both state and federal petitions for relief arguing that because the missing jewelry was never recovered, prosecutors failed to prove the murder resulted from a botched robbery; that the trial court refused to properly define terms of his "future dangerousness"; and that jurors were not briefed on specific laws pertaining to the selection of the death penalty..."

"...Subversive, in part, to that fragile, cherished, and always endangered entity: the individual. But also mightily threatening to the linearity and sense of boundary that every society in history has believed necessary...."
"...Since then, Dallas' owners argue, the agency has been on a harassment campaign targeting the club and its Wednesday night 69-cent drink special, which TABC claims leads to excessive drinking. While patrons arrested during SIP stings were charged with PI in part, defined as intoxicated to the degree that a person is a danger to themselves or others the ABC does not define "intoxication" at all, Dallas owners argue, thus making it so "no one, including a server, an establishment, a TABC agent, or even a Court can determine which definition of intoxication should be used." TABC's position weathered another blow April 21, when the judge presiding over the agency's bid to revoke Dallas' liquor permits opined that the agency failed to prove that Dallas bartenders had knowingly served alcohol to drunk patrons, or that the 69-cent special was designed to induce excessive consumption..."
"...There is no point minimizing the suffering and danger in store for most of us. During the transition to whatever will be, big cities will have an especially rough time, and nobody will have an easy time anywhere..."
"...This particular artist, although a major star in Jamaica, is a viciously homophobic hatemonger. His song "Damn" begins, "I'm dreaming of a new Jamaica, come to execute all the gays." In his hit song "Bad Man Chi Chi Man," Beenie Man tells his fans to murder gay DJs if they see one onstage. He was awarded a Grammy for a previous album on which he offered to shoot and kill homosexuals. There is a fine line between free speech and speech that incites physical danger..."
"...According to Neyens, the APD's promise was soon broken.Neyens' Story It wasn't long, Neyens says, until her son's status as an informant was leaked to several criminals he was helping the APD pursue -- putting his own life in danger. Her son was frightened, she recalls, and soon became depressed and suicidal..."
"...The DBPR/OCSO target in this case was a suspicious enterprise calling itself Strictly Skillz, and the agents spent a month carefully planning a joint sweep operation, including a fully armed SWAT team. On the day of the raid, the team first sealed off the parking lot; next, two undercover cops entered to size up the danger; and then – BAM! – the SWAT team hit the unsuspecting suspects..."

"...Maybe someday I'll need to go back again to my early years, and your book will be the portal. My favorite line of yours, from Hard Country: "Writing is a physical act, erotic and dangerous." So is reading, when the writer is good enough..."
"...Some critics, most prominently the activist group FixAustin, relentlessly pound the "pound" – their pejorative term for the Town Lake Animal Center – as a shameful, outmoded "slaughterhouse" that kills, they say, roughly half of the animals taken into the facility. The most-cited numbers in general circulation are 10,000 to 12,000 euthanasias a year – although these gross and variable estimates make no attempt to distinguish between the necessary killing of ill or dangerous animals and the killing of those that (for whatever reason) have not been adopted in a reasonable time..."
"...Darker skins, different accents, Spanish instead of Italian, but that's not much of a change (we were fairly dark, and our accents were strange for that time). The buildings, the garbage, the mood, the danger, how people carried themselves –- that was all the same..."
"...Said Abraham Lincoln, the first great Republican: "When shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some transatlantic giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe and Asia could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years..."

"...America may do the same. We'll listen to eulogies spoken over the coffin of our empire; we'll mourn for ourselves a little or a lot; then (for there is life after empire), forever changed and forever the same, with little worldly power to rant of, we will continue being what at our core we are: vast and always edgy, sometimes disastrous and sometimes astounding – an ever uncertain experiment in the wonder and danger of liberty...."
"...But Love said the TYC figures are inaccurate and the danger much higher, limiting staff's ability to protect themselves or the vulnerable youths they are supposed to guard. Love said staff members feel reporting assaults internally is all but useless, so they don't file the paperwork..."
"...For all his evocation of history and culture, for all his joy in beauty, and for all his daring, there is an ever-present and inescapable danger prowling Robert Bly's book. You and I will never have one whole day of light./At three o'clock, a wall will creak, or a hare will die..."

"...The small crowd in front of the stage starts kicking up tension, and suddenly there's something in the air not found at most punk shows these days: danger. When the band segues straight into "Angel Face," some unseen needle pushes into the red..."

"...All of the plants that I sprayed in the park (with the exception of two catalpas growing in a power line easement) are trees and shrubs that PARD, Watershed Protection, and Austin ISD agreed to have killed. I refuse to take seriously any complaints about my killing these two catalpas in a powerline easement, as my doing so now makes Austin Energy's necessary line-maintenance work easier. Column 1, lines 15-17: "… residents are concerned about the possible effects of the chemicals on the area wildlife, as well as on children and pets." By implication this statement implies that the chemicals I used, Remedy and Garlon 3A, as well as methylated seed oil, are dangerous to human or animal health..."

"...Let me say that I am no expert in the operations of a model urban fire department; I have no idea if the union is just, if you will, blowing smoke -- because it's a union, and securing the maximum number of sworn firefighter positions is in its obvious interest -- or if the squad/quint plan really does put firefighters and citizens in danger. (National standards say no fire apparatus should go out with fewer than four people, but the squads are designed to run with two..."
