Dane

A county in Wisconsin.

(APA-238: dp. 6,720; 1. 465'; b. 62' dr. 24'; s. 17 k.;
cpl. 692; a. 1 5"; cl. Haskell

Dane (APA-238) was launched 9 August 1945 by Oregon Shipbuilding Corp., Portland, Oreg., under a Maritime Commission contract; sponsored by Mrs. D. A. Button; transferred to the Navy 29 October 1946; and commissioned the same day, Captain D. K. Day in command.

Dane made three "Magic Carpet" voyages to the Western Pacific from 29 December 1945 to 10 July 1946, bringing home veterans from Okinawa, Guam, Peleliu, Manus, Truk, and Kwajalein. She remained at San Francisco until placed out of commission 20 December 1946. She was transferred to the Maritime Administration 17 August 1948.


Overturning Exclusion, Limiting Immigration

By midcentury, Saund had carved out what he considered to be a good life in the States. “I was making America my home,” he later wrote. He “had married an American girl,” and together they had three children. He had a successful farming business and had an active social life. But he could not escape the reality that state and federal laws excluded him from political engagement. “I was dedicated to what is called the American way of life and yet when I looked in front of me I saw that the bars of citizenship were shut tight against me.” 74

In response, Saund helped create the India Association of America in the early 1940s, a group that worked toward winning naturalization rights and, in effect, overturning the alien land laws. The association raised both money and awareness, and it was not long before he received help from national lawmakers. 75 Both Presidents FDR and Truman had recommended extending Asian Indians the opportunity to become naturalized citizens and including them in the national origins quota system. To that end, Representative Emanuel Celler of New York introduced H.R. 3517 on June 20, 1945. Coming just weeks after V-E Day, it garnered widespread bipartisan support as a way to counter Japan’s anti- American propaganda. 76 The Senate later added a clause granting immigration and naturalization rights to people from the Philippines, which was about to gain its independence from the United States. The bill became law on July 2, 1946. 77

Saund became a U.S. citizen on December 16, 1949. A little more than seven years later, he took the oath of office as the first full-fledged voting Member of Asian descent in the history of the U.S. Congress.

It was around midcentury that public opinion on alien land laws also started to shift, and it was not long before the federal courts began reversing their earlier decisions. On April 17, 1952, in Sei Fujii v. California, the California supreme court declared the land laws unconstitutional and added that they violated the United Nations Charter. California voters finally erased the policy in a public referendum in November 1956. Washington State removed the last alien land law on the West Coast 10 years later. 78

When the 82nd Congress (1951–1953) began in January 1951, the two chairmen of Congress’s immigration subcommittees laid out a comprehensive overhaul. Pennsylvania Representative Francis E. Walter and Nevada Senator Patrick (Pat) McCarran, both of whom were fervent anti-communists and isolationists, drafted H.R. 5678, an omnibus immigration bill that built on the Immigration Act of 1924. Hoping to make immigration law a part of the country’s Cold War arsenal, they added new features to more easily exclude and deport immigrants they considered to be subversive. 79

Building on Walter Judd’s 1949 immigration bill, Senator McCarran embedded the Asia-Pacific Triangle provision into the new bill. The triangle clause set a limit of 100 visas per country, but enabled all Asian immigrants to apply for naturalization. Judd’s triangle provision became something of a sideshow to the larger congressional debate on how best to fight communism. But, crucially, the JACL, the major nisei civic association in the country, backed the citizenship provision. Their lobbyists in Washington, Etsu and Mike Masaoka, made their way through the congressional office buildings and argued that McCarran–Walter would honor the parents of those nisei soldiers who fought and died for the country in Europe. 80

Although the bill opened up citizenship to thousands of Japanese immigrants, the final version’s limited quotas and anti-communism provisions troubled President Truman, who vetoed it on June 25, 1952. The next day, however, the House overrode the veto, 278 to 112. The Senate followed suit on June 27, 57 to 26, and enacted the McCarran–Walter Immigration and Nationality Act into law. 81


Operational history [ edit | edit source ]

Dane arrived too late too see action in World War II, but she arrived in time to participate in Operation Magic Carpet, the massive sealift made shortly after the war to bring returning servicemen home.

Dane made three "Magic Carpet" voyages to the West Pacific from 29 December 1945 to 10 July 1946, bringing home veterans from Okinawa, Guam, Peleliu, Manus, Truk, and Kwajalein.

Decommission [ edit | edit source ]

She remained at San Francisco until placed out of commission 20 December 1946. She was transferred to the Maritime Administration 17 August 1958, which disposed of her some time thereafter. Her final disposition is unknown.


TV and Film Roles

&aposMy So-Called Life&apos

In 1992, Danes caught her first big break when she landed the starring role of Angela Chase, a curious, hyper-intelligent teen in the series My So-Called Life, which eventually debuted in late summer 1994. While ratings for the program never ballooned, My So-Called Life proved to be a hit with critics, with Danes even winning a Golden Globe for best actress. However, the network&aposs patience for the show was thin, and the series was pulled after just 19 episodes.

&aposLittle Women,&apos &aposHow to Make an American Quilt&apos

Even before the end of her television show, Danes had started to make her way onto the big screen. She made her feature film debut in 1994&aposs Little Women, opposite Kirsten Dunst, Christian Bale and Winona Ryder, and a year later, she appeared in How to Make an American Quilt.

&aposRomeo + Juliet,&apos &aposThe Rainmaker,&apos &aposLes Misérables&apos

By the late 1990s, Danes&aposs film career only seemed to have an upward trajectory. She co-starred with Leonardo DiCaprio in Baz Luhrmann&aposs Romeo + Juliet (1996), enjoyed a major role in The Rainmaker (1997) and was cast as Cosette in an update of Victor Hugo&aposs classic tale Les Misérables (1998).

&aposThe Hours,&apos &aposTerminator 3&apos

In 1998, Danes put her film career on hold to pursue an undergraduate degree at Yale University. "I needed to find myself," she explained. "I had played so many roles but I didn&apost really know who I was." After਌ompleting two years at Yale, she slowly returned to her acting career. There were small roles at first, like The Hours (2002), before Danes was back at it full time. In 2003, she co-starred in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.

&aposShopgirl,&apos &aposTemple Grandin&apos

Danes continued to tackle roles in such interesting films as Shopgirl (2005), Evening (2007) and Stardust (2007), among other projects. Venturing back to the small screen, she played the role of an autistic woman in the 2009 film Temple Grandin, which brought the talented actress her first Emmy Award.

&aposHomeland&apos

Danes went on to another television triumph with Homeland. Debuting in 2011, the series featured Dane as CIA agent Carrie Mathison, who suspects a Marine sergeant (Damian Lewis) of being involved in a possible terror plot. The role brought Dane strong reviews and numerous accolades, including Emmys in 2012 and 2013 for outstanding lead actress in a drama series. Lewis also picked up an Emmy, while the show&aposs Emmy and Golden Globe wins underscored its standing as one of TV&aposs premier programs. Following eight seasons, Homeland signed off in April 2020.

Her big-screen projects largely taking a backseat during her lengthy run on Homeland, Danes eventually surfaced in the 2017 comedy Brigsby Bear and the 2018 drama A Kid Like Jake.

The Origins of ‘Karen’

Robin Queen, the chairwoman of the linguistics department at University of Michigan, has looked closely at this question and her exploration led her to, of all people, Dane Cook.

His 2005 comedy album contains a riff called “The Friend Nobody Likes”: “There is one person in a group of friends that nobody likes,” Mr. Cook says, using an expletive to emphasize how much they are, in fact, disliked. “They basically keep them there to hate their guts. When that person is not around the rest of your little base camp, your hobby is cutting that person down.” As an “example” of this person, he describes a woman named Karen.

Other antecedents include Amanda Seyfried’s vacant Karen in “Mean Girls,” who racistly spouts to Lindsay Lohan’s Cady: “If you’re from Africa, why are you white?” A parody account on Reddit from late 2017 based on the rants of a spurned husband is also often cited as an early driver, and highlights the sexism of the “Karen” trope.

Karen Grigsby Bates, the senior correspondent for the “Code Switch” podcast on NPR, said Karen’s roots are anchored deep in American folklore. Ms. Bates — who embarked on this research not because of her name, but because the phenomenon was “a convergence of gender, race, class, social upheaval and social media in this great big tornado” — pointed to the term “Miss Ann” from the antebellum and Jim Crow periods.

African-Americans used the term as code “to refer to these unreasonable white women,” Ms. Bates said. She described Miss Ann as “a woman who knew her place in society, was complicit in maintaining it, and who was at the upper end of the hierarchy. Even if she was a nice Miss Ann, she was still upholding this system that said: ‘White womanhood above all else, except white manhood.’”

Researchers also point to the demographic characteristics of the name Karen. According to Social Security data, Karen soared in popularity in the 1960s, peaking as the third-most-popular baby name of 1965, but never had a resurgence. The archetype is meant to evoke a woman of a certain age, but then again Linda, Cynthia or Susan would, too.

That’s where the Karen theories get geekily fascinating. Miriam Eckert, who has a Ph.D. in linguistics and lives in Boulder, Colo., said that the word “Karen” contains what’s known as a “voiceless plosive.”

“That’s the K sound at the beginning of the word,” Ms. Eckert said. “When you say some consonants, like K or a T, there’s a complete blockage of airflow and a sudden release — whereas a name like Cynthia has no stops at all. Karen is kind of a harsh sound that you can really spit out. And that aligns with the kind of person we are thinking of when we talk about a ‘Karen.’”


Our Friend (2021)

Nicole Teague, who is portrayed by Dakota Johnson in the film, was 34 years old at the time she was diagnosed with terminal cancer in September 2012. While the movie doesn't specify the type of cancer Nicole has, in researching the Our Friend true story, we discovered that it had started as ovarian cancer before spreading throughout her abdomen.

When did Matt and Nicole meet?

How did Matt and Nicole meet their best friend Dane Faucheux?

The true story reveals that they had met Dane Faucheux 15 years earlier while they were living in New Orleans and Nicole and Dane were going to the same college. -Esquire

Did Dane Faucheux dye his hair blue to match Nicole's?

In real life, when Nicole Teague's hair began to fall out from chemo, she asked her husband Matt to get his beard trimmer and give her a Mohawk. Matt sent the picture to Dane, who immediately buzzed his own head into a Mohawk to match Nicole's. Matt doesn't mention hair dying in his Esquire article. In a blog post, Nicole did write that she completed her bucket list item of having red hair. However, there's no mention of Dane dying his.

How many kids did the real Matt and Nicole Teague have?

The Our Friend true story confirms that Matt and Nicole had two young girls, Molly and Evangeline (Evie), who were approximately ten and seven at the time the events depicted in the movie took place.

Did Dane stop a group of churchwomen from entering Nicole's hospital room?

Yes. This comes straight from the Esquire article that inspired the Our Friend movie. A group of Baptist women came by Nicole's hospital room while she was trying to sleep. Dane had posted himself outside to stop anyone from unnecessarily bothering Nicole and Matt. He told the women that he was sorry to inform them they could not enter. "I feel pretty sure God can hear you out here in the hall," he said.

Does the Our Friend movie portray Nicole Teague's battle with cancer accurately?

Not exactly. It leaves out some of the more horrific aspects of Nicole's battle. In the Esquire article that inspired the film, the real Matt Teague talks about how his wife Nicole shed significant weight, understandably more than the movie was able to portray. He mentions that her collarbone looked unnatural, "like something an alien implanted under her skin." He also talks about having to change the packing in the dime-sized holes in her abdomen, the result of her surgeries and her body becoming increasingly slower in its ability to heal itself.

As her body began to reject food, Matt says that small pieces of half-digested food mixed with stomach acid would emerge through the wounds in Nicole's abdomen via tunnels that had formed called fistulas. They tried to use gauzes and cloth diapers to catch it, but the stomach acid would eat through them and eventually started to consume her flesh as well. This is just one of the physical horrors that Matt describes in his article, any one of which could have easily turned off movie audiences.

However, critics like Peter Debruge of Variety complained that scrubbing the unpleasantness from the movie turns it into a "dishonest, sanitized, no-help-to-anyone TV-movie version of death," which had been precisely why Matt Teague wanted to set the record straight in his article.

When did Nicole and Matt Teague's best friend move in with them?

Our fact check confirms that Dane Faucheux (Jason Segel in the movie) came to stay with Matt and Nicole around Christmas 2013. He had been living in New Orleans, where Nicole had met him in college. Like in the Our Friend movie, he moved in on the night that their Pug, Gracie, died after being diagnosed with cancer. Dane gave up a management position and left his friends and apartment in New Orleans to come stay with them at their house in the small town of Fairhope, Alabama. Initially, Dane was just supposed to stay for a few months to help.

As shown in the Our Friend film, Dane took over many of the domestic duties, especially during the periods when Nicole's condition worsened. He cooked, cleaned, did the laundry, and went grocery shopping.

Did Dane take Matt hiking for a couple of days to help him regain his strength and mental composure?

Yes. After noticing how much Matt was struggling both physically and mentally, Dane took Matt hiking in the Appalachians for a couple of days. A friend of Nicole's agreed to stay with her while they were away. It's true that Matt was reluctant to go at first, not wanting to leave Nicole. He even thought that Dane was conspiring against him, as Dane expressed his concern for Matt to both Nicole and Julia, the counselor. He also wondered why Dane was making secret arrangements with their friends behind his back.

The time in the Appalachians seems to be depicted accurately, aside from some minor changes. In the movie, they see a group of college-aged girls swinging on a rope swing and dropping into a creek or pond. In real life, the girls were jumping off of rocks jutting out from the top of a waterfall. Similar to the movie, Dane climbed up and took a turn as Matt cheered him on.

Did Nicole get to be the grand marshal of a Mardi Gras parade?

Yes. Throughout 2014, Nicole had moments of improved health. She began to eat again, and she made a bucket list of all the things she wanted to do. This included visiting New York City one last time, jumping into the downtown fountain with their friends, and being the grand marshal of a Mardi Gras parade, all of which she accomplished.

Did moving in with Matt and Nicole cause Dane Faucheux's girlfriend to break up with him?

Did powerful painkillers cause Nicole Teague to experience disturbing hallucinations?

Yes. In one instance, Nicole called for her husband Matt and told him she needed help to the bathroom. She then told him that she was a Barbie Doll and that when he moved her, he could only move one limb at a time. It's true that Matt and Dane kept the girls away from her when she was hallucinating. Painkillers like Dilaudid, which is seven times stronger than morphine, also attributed to her lashing out, especially at Matt.

Did Nicole really crave mayonnaise?

Yes, it was one of the few foods she could still taste accurately. Matt said that she ate so much mayo it became a jar-a-day habit. -Esquire

Did Matt have to change their accounts to stop his wife Nicole from secretly ordering things online?

Yes. In order to help maintain her normal role as mother and shopper, Nicole started to secretly order things online, including toilet paper, school supplies, and clothing. Matt says that he let it go on for a long time, but the final straw came when Nicole sent money to someone in Iraq. It was then that he started to change their accounts to prevent her from accessing them.

Did Matt and Dane illegally obtain marijuana for Nicole's pain?

Yes, since medical marijuana was then still not available in Alabama, some friends offered to get them illegal marijuana. An Our Friend fact check confirms that they were told to pick up the weed from a mailbox before noon. However, they arrived to find that the mail carrier had already been there and left the mail on top of the brick of weed.

How long did Dane Faucheux live with Matt Teague's family?

Dane Faucheux spent a total of 14 months living with Matt and his family. He left abruptly four months after Nicole died, not knowing how to tell Matt. He just began packing and left one day while Matt's daughters were at school. He headed back to New Orleans to reclaim the life he had left behind. Dane visits Matt and the girls often.

What's the biggest difference between real-life and the Our Friend movie?

Did actor Jason Segel meet the real Dane Faucheux?

Yes. Jason Segel met the real Dane once about halfway through filming. However, he says that he made it a point to separate the character from the real Dane, since certain parts of the character were fictionalized for the movie. This includes portraying Dane as "dorky." Also, while Dane does in fact perform stand-up comedy in real life, Segel depicts him as a not-so-great stand-up comedian. -ET Canada

What are the real Matthew Teague and Dane Faucheux doing today?

A 2019 Nieman Fellow at Harvard, Matt continues to work as a freelance journalist, writing for such notable publications as Esquire, Men's Journal, Smithsonian, The Atlantic and The Guardian. He was an executive producer on the Our Friend movie. Matt remarried in 2019. His wife Bo gave birth to a baby boy in early October 2020.

As for Dane Faucheux, "[He] is deliriously happy," Matt Teague told the audience during a Q&A at TIFF. "He's recently married to a wonderful girl in New Orleans, and he's still my best friend."


Giant Health Problems for Giant Dogs

Scientific mysteries aside, Great Danes are prone to quite a few health conditions that can shorten their life span.

Bloat

The breed is particularly susceptible to bloat, a dangerous and often fatal condition that results in the stomach twisting and cutting off blood supply. Dogs that suffer from bloat once often get it a second time, and your veterinarian may recommend a tacking procedure to try and minimize future risk. If you own a Great Dane or another breed that is prone to this disease, talk to your veterinarian about the symptoms of bloat and how it can be avoided.

Cardiomyopathy

Great Danes are known for their big hearts, but this figure of speech has a darker, more literal meaning. Great Danes frequently suffer from cardiomyopathy, a disease of the heart muscle that leads to enlargement of the heart itself.

Joint & Bone Disease

With those giant frames, it is no wonder that Great Danes experience joint and bone diseases, such as hip dysplasia and osteoarthritis. These conditions are often gradual and result in a slow deterioration that ultimately requires owners to make a decision about their dog’s quality of life.

Many large dog breeds like Great Danes benefit from joint supplements such as glucosamine. If your dog is diagnosed with arthritis, your vet will most likely recommend a chewable supplement veterinarian-grade dose of glucosamine and chondroitin.

You can purchase supplements with these ingredients, like Glyde Mobility Chews, for your Great Dane, who might be prone to developing arthritis and hip dysplasia down the line. These joint supplements are often used as an early intervention and throughout the progression of arthritis, as they are safe for long-term use in most patients. While research is still limited, these supplements may help reduce symptoms of hip dysplasia.

Thyroid Problems

Great Danes are also prone to thyroid problems. Autoimmune thyroiditis commonly causes hypothyroidism in Great Danes. Luckily, this disease can be monitored and regulated with medication, and your veterinarian can monitor your dog’s thyroid levels with simple blood work.


History

With overwhelming citizen support, including 11 testimonies and over 200 citizen petition signatures, the Dane County Board voted on October 6, 2005 to adopt a resolution to create Wisconsin&rsquos first ever food council.

The food council was created to address food system issues in the county, including:

  • Development of educational programs
  • Data-gathering
  • Research projects
  • Policies for increasing the municipal purchase of local foods
  • Improving and supporting direct marketing opportunities for local growers
  • Assisting with the development of local food projects such as the Central Agriculture Food Facility and the public market project

But the Dane County Food Council&rsquos (DCFC) origins really began more than a year earlier, through a June 1, 2004 act of the County Board&rsquos Environment, Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee. The committee, with the sponsorship of its chair, Supervisor Kyle Richmond, established a 15-person Local Food Policy Advisory Subcommittee (LFPAS), in large part to position Dane County in the burgeoning local food movement. Chaired by Ruth Simpson, the subcommittee met regularly over 13 months, a year highlighted by its organizing a Local Food Summit. Almost 100 attendees from across Dane County provided input into a number of topics related to local food production, food processing and distribution, and food access and consumption. Five months later, this input &ndash together with ideas generated by LFPAS members &ndash formed the basis for the subcommittee&rsquos summary report, Recipe for Success: Recommendations of the Dane County Local Food Policy Advisory Subcommittee.

The Recipe for Success report centered on five recommendation areas. The fifth of these, creating a county food policy council, was supported in the report by a thorough review of the work of food policy councils across the United States and Canada. The LFPAS recommended that a county-created food council would provide the mechanism to address its other recommendations.

DCFC made an early decision to focus on encouraging food system activities already underway. These efforts &ndash creating a farmers&rsquo market network, furthering food purchasing by Dane County government, and supporting an existing market basket distribution program &ndash had mixed success. However, they were valuable in determining what approaches could maximize the council&rsquos effectiveness.

Later in 2007, Council member Gerry Campbell led an effort that resulted in the DCFC&rsquos recognition by the National Association of Counties as a finalist in its Sustainable Community Awards program. NACO also highlighted the council in its publication, Counties and Local Food Systems: Ensuring Healthy Foods, Nurturing Healthy Children. Also in 2007, the Council worked closely with the county food purchasing staff to draft a Local Food Purchase Policy that was adopted as a County Board resolution later in the year.

Throughout its short history, DCFC has maintained a primary focus on strengthening the consumption of locally-grown foods, primarily through public education and outreach. It takes advantage of opportunities to engage the public. A newly-established Speakers' Bureau has begun offering presentations to groups throughout Dane county. The council has also engaged in the larger community food movement sending its members to meetings to state and national meetings, and engaging in advocacy opportunities.


Toward Inclusiveness in 21st-Century Psychology

As we can see, progress has been made in U.S. psychol­ogy in terms of making diversity a part of the agenda. Still, the membership of ethnic minorities in APA and other general psychological organizations lags well behind the proportions in the U.S. population. And, still, there is significant resistance to making training programs in the professional fields of psychology—clinical, counseling, and school—truly committed to the necessity of training all the students to be culturally competent in the provision of mental health services.

Where can we look for a model of how to do this best? Surprisingly, it is in many of the professional training schools, many offering the Doctor of Psychology degree, that we can find successful models of training for diversity. At the best programs, the administration and faculty are characterized by the following:
