Mengapa Yahudi Terlalu Berkuasa?

Oleh : Dr Farrukh Saleem
Semakan Oleh : Mohd Taha Hassan

There are only 14 million Jews in the world; seven million in the Americas , five million in Asia, two million in Europe and 100,000 in Africa . For every single Jew in the world there are 100 Muslims. Yet, Jews are more than a hundred times more powerful than all the Muslims put together. Ever wondered why?

Hanya ada 14 juta Yahudi di muka bumi ini; tujuh juta di Amerika, lima juta di Asia, dua juta di Eropah dan 100,000 di Afrika. Bagi setiap orang Yahudi ada 100 orang Muslim (1:100). Namun, jika dicampuri semua sekali, Yahudi lebih 100 kali berkuasa daripada orang Islam. Mengapa ini berlaku?

Jesus of Nazareth was Jewish. Albert Einstein, the most influential scientist of all time and TIME magazine's 'Person of the Century', was a Jew. Sigmund Freud -- id, ego, superego -- the father of psychoanalysis was a Jew. So were Paul Samuelson and Milton Friedman.

Nabi Isa (Jesus of Nazareth) ialah Yahudi. Albert Einstein, saintis zaman moden paling terkemuka dan disebut oleh majalah Time sebagai 'Manusia Abad ini' ialah seorang Yahudi; Sigmund Freud - melalui teori id, ego dan super-ego ialah bapa psikoanalisis, juga seorang Yahudi; begitu juga Karl Marx, Paul Samuelson dan Milton Friedman.

Here are a few other Jews whose intellectual output has enriched the whole humanity: Benjamin Rubin gave humanity the vaccinating needle. Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine. Alert Sabin developed the improved live polio vaccine. Gertrude Elion gave us a leukaemia fighting drug. Baruch Blumberg developed the vaccination for Hepatitis B. Paul Ehrlich discovered a treatment for syphilis (a sexually transmitted disease). Elie Metchnikoff won a Nobel Prize in infectious diseases.

Selain mereka banyak lagi orang Yahudi yang hasil kebijaksanaan mereka berupaya menghasilkan keperluan untuk kita semua: Benjamin Rubin memperkenalkan jarum suntikan pelalian. Johas Salk mereka vaksin polio yang pertama. Gertrude Elion mencipta ubat melawan leukemia. Baruch Blumberg mencipta vaksin Hepatitis B. Paul Ehrlich menemukan rawatan untuk siflis. Elie Metchnikoff menang Hadiah Nobel untuk penyakit berjangkit.

Bernard Katz won a Nobel Prize in neuromuscular transmission. Andrew Schally won a Nobel in endocrinology (disorders of the endocrine system; diabetes, hyperthyroidism). Aaron Beck founded Cognitive Therapy (psychotherapy to treat mental disorders, depression and phobias). Gregory Pincus developed the first oral contraceptive pill. George Wald won a Nobel for furthering our understanding of the human eye. Stanley Cohen won a Nobel in embryology (study of embryos and their development). Willem Kolff came up with the kidney dialysis machine.

Bernard Katz menang Hadiah Nobel kerana kajian mengenai transmisi neuromuskular. Andrew Schally penerima Nobel dalam kajian endokrinologi (berkaitan sistem endokrin dan kencing manis). Aaron Beck menemui terapi kognitif (rawatan mental, kesugulan dan fobia). Gregory Pincus membangunkan pil perancang keluarga yang pertama. George Wald menang Nobel bagi kajian mata manusia, Standley Cohen dianugerahi Hadiah Nobel dalam kajian embriologi (kajian janin dan perkembangannya). Willem Kolff mencipta mesin dialisis (mencuci) buah pinggang.

Over the past 105 years, 14 million Jews have won 15-dozen Nobel Prizes while only three Nobel Prizes have been won by 1.4 billion Muslims (other than Peace Prizes).

Sejak 105 tahun, 14 juta Yahudi menang 15 dozen Hadiah Nobel, sementara tiga dimenangi oleh 1.4 bilion umat Islam.

Why are Jews so powerful? Stanley Mezor invented the first micro-processing chip. Leo Szilard developed the first nuclear chain reactor. Peter Schultz, optical fibre cable; Charles Adler, traffic lights; Benno Strauss, Stainless steel; Isador Kisee, sound movies; Emile Berliner, telephone microphone and Charles Ginsburg, videotape recorder.

Mengapa Yahudi Terlalu Berkuasa? Stanley Mezor mencipta mikrocip pertama. Leo Szilards membangunkan reaktor rangkaian nuklear pertama; Peter Schultz (kabel gentian optik); Charles Adler (lampu isyarat); Benno Strauss (besi tahan karat - stainless steel); Isador Kisee (sistem suara di pawagam); Emile Berliner (mikrofon untuk telefon) dan Charles Ginsburg (alat pita rakaman).

Famous financiers in the business world who belong to Jewish faith include Ralph Lauren (Polo), Levis Strauss (Levi's Jeans), Howard Schultz (Starbuck's), Sergey Brin (Google), Michael Dell (Dell Computers), Larry Ellison (Oracle), Donna Karan (DKNY), Irv Robbins (Baskins & Robbins) and Bill Rosenberg (Dunkin Donuts).

Saudagar jenama terkaya dunia juga dikuasai Yahudi iaitu Ralph Lauren (Polo), Levis Strauss (Levi's Jeans), Howard Schultz (Starbuck's), Sergey Brin (Google), Michael Dell (Dell Computers), Larry Ellison (Oracle), Donna Karan (DKNY), Irv Robbins (Baskin & Robbins) dan Bill Rossenberg (Dunkin Donuts).

Richard Levin, President of Yale University, is a Jew. So are Henry Kissinger (American secretary of state), Alan Greenspan (fed chairman under Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush), Joseph Lieberman, Maxim Litvinov (USSR foreign Minister), David Marshal (Singapore's first chief minister), Issac Isaacs (governor-general of Australia), Benjamin Disraeli (British statesman and author), Yevgeny Primakov (Russian PM), Barry Gold water, Jorge Sampaio (president of Portugal), John Deutsch (CIA director), Herb Gray (Canadian deputy PM), Pierre Mendes (French PM), Michael Howard (British home secretary) and Robert Rubin (American secretary of treasury).

Richard Levin, presiden universiti tersohor Yale Universiti ialah seorang Yahudi.

At the Olympics, Mark Spitz set a record of sorts by wining seven gold medals. Lenny Krayzelburg is a three-time Olympic gold medalist. Spitz, Krayzelburg and Boris Becker are all Jewish.

Di Olimpik, Mark Spitz membolot tujuh pingat emas. Lenny Krayzelburg ialah pemegang tiga kali pingat emas Olimpik. Spitz Krayzelburg dan Boris Becker adalah Yahudi.

Did you know that Harrison Ford, George Burns, Tony Curtis, Charles Bronson, Sandra Bullock, Billy Crystal, Paul Newman, Peter Sellers, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Ben Kingsley, Kirk Douglas, Cary Grant, William Shatner, Jerry Lewis and Peter Falk are all Jewish? As a matter of fact, Hollywood itself was founded by a Jew. Among directors and producers, Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, Oliver Stone, Aaron Spelling (Beverly Hills 90210), Neil Simon (The Odd Couple), Andrew Vaina (Rambo 1/2/3), Michael Man (Starsky and Hutch), Milos Forman (One flew over the Cuckoo's Nest), Douglas Fairbanks (The thief of Baghdad) and Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) are all Jewish.

Tahukah anda bahawa pelakon pujaan Harrison Ford, George Burns, Tony Curtis, Charles Bronson, Sandra Bullock, Billy Cystal, Woody Allen, Paul Newman, Peter Sellers, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Ben Kingsley, Kirk Douglas, Willian Shatner, Jerry Lewis dan Peter Falk semuanya Yahudi?

To be certain, Washington is the capital that matters and in Washington the lobby that matters is The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC. Washington knows that if PM Ehud Olmert were to discover that the earth is flat, AIPAC will make the 109th Congress pass a resolution congratulating Olmert on his discovery.

Washington yang merupakan ibu negara Amerika Syarikat, mempunyai satu pertubuhan lobi yang amat berkuasa. Ia dikenali sebagai Jawatankuasa Hal Ehwal Awam Amerika Israel (AIPAC) yang berupaya mempengaruhi Kongres meluluskan resolusi memuji dan 'membuat apa saja' demi Israel. Washington mengetahui bahawa jika PM Ehud Olmert sedar akan wujudnya bahawa bumi ini adalah rata, maka AIPAC akan mengadakan Kongres yang ke 109 untuk meluluskan resolusi bagi memberi ucapan tahniah pada satu pertemuan yang akan diadakan bersama Olmert.

William James Sidis, with an IQ of 250-300, is the brightest human who ever existed. Guess what faith did he belong to?

Tahukah lagi bahawa William James Sidis dengan IQ 250-300 ialah manusia tercerdik. Dia ialah Yahudi. Teka, apakah kepercayaan yang beliau miliki?

So, why are Jews so powerful? Answer: Education.

Oleh yang demikian, mengapa Yahudi terlalu berkuasa? Jawapannya: Pendidikan, pelajaran, ilmu.

Mempengaruhi

Dermawan dan penyangak mata wang, George Soros ialah Yahudi. Dia menderma AS$4 bilion untuk membantu ahli sains dan universiti serata dunia.

Walter Annenberg menderma untuk membina ratusan perpustakaan berjumlah AS$2 bilion.

Jadi, mengapa mereka ini terlalu berkuasa? Mengapa umat Islam terlalu lemah?

Dianggarkan 1,476,233,470 Muslim di atas muka bumi Allah ini. Satu bilion di Asia, 400 juta di Afrika, 44 juta di Eropah dan enam juta di Amerika. Setiap lima insan manusia ialah Muslim. Setiap seorang Hindu ada dua orang Islam, setiap seorang Buddha ada dua orang Islam dan setiap seorang Yahudi ada beratus orang Islam. Mengapa orang Islam terlalu lemah?

Ini jawapannya: Terdapat 57 negara anggota OIC dan jika dicampur semua cuma ada kira-kira 500 buah universiti; atau sebuah universiti untuk setiap tiga juta orang Islam.

AS mempunyai 5,758 universiti dan India ada 8,407. Pada 2004, Shanghai Jiao Tong Universiti membuat kajian 'Kedudukan Akademik Universiti-universiti Dunia' - dan menakjubkan - tiada satu pun universiti-negara Islam yang berada di puncak 500.

Data yang dikumpul dari UNDP, tahap celik huruf di negara maju ialah hampir 90 peratus dan 15 negara itu mempunyai 100 peratus celik huruf. Negara majoriti penduduk Islam, purata kadar celik huruf ialah sekitar 40 peratus dan tiada negara yang mempunyai 100 peratus semuanya celik huruf.

Sekitar 98 peratus penduduk di negara maju menamatkan sekurang-kurang sekolah rendah, sementara hanya 50 peratus di negara majoriti Islam. Sekitar 40 peratus penduduk di negara maju memasuki universiti, sementara hanya 2 peratus di negara majoriti Islam.

Negara-negara majoriti Islam mempunyai 230 ahli sains bagi setiap (per) sejuta penduduk. Di AS 4,000 per sejuta, Jepun 5,000 per sejuta. Di seluruh negara Arab, penyelidik sepenuh masa ialah 35,000 dan hanya 50 juruteknik per sejuta (berbanding di negara maju 1,000 juruteknik per sejuta).

Negara Islam membelanjakan 0.2 peratus daripada KDNK untuk penyelidikan dan pembangunan (R&D) sebaliknya, di negara maju membelanjakan 5 peratus daripada KDNKnya.

Kesimpulan: Dunia Islam kurang keupayaan untuk menghasilkan ilmu pengetahuan.

Akhbar harian yang dibaca oleh setiap 1,000 orang dan jumlah judul buku yang dibaca oleh setiap sejuta orang adalah dua angka tunjuk bagi menentukan sama ada ilmu pengetahuan disalurkan ke dalam masyarakat.

Di Pakistan, hanya ada 23 akhbar harian per 1,000 rakyat Pakistan sementara nisbah di Singapura ialah 360. Di UK, jumlah judul buku per juta orang ialah 2,000 sementara di Mesir ialah 20.

Kesimpulan: Dunia Islam gagal menyalurkan ilmu pengetahuan.

Yang menariknya, jumlah terkumpul KDNK tahunan 57 buah negara ahli OIC ialah di bawah AS$2 trilion. Amerika sahaja, menghasilkan barangan dan perkhidmatan bernilai AS$12 trilion, China AS$8 trilion, Jepun AS$3.8 trilion dan Jerman AS$2.4 trilion.

Pengeluar minyak yang kaya, Arab Saudi, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar secara rangkuman menghasilkan barangan dan perkhidmatan (rata-rata minyak) bernilai AS$500 bilion; Sepanyol sahaja menghasilkan barangan dan perkhidmatan bernilai lebih AS$1 trilion, Poland AS$489 bilion dan Thailand AS$545 bilion.

Jadi, mengapa orang Islam tidak berkuasa dan orang Yahudi paling berkuasa?

Jawapannya ialah: Kurangnya ilmu. Kurangnya pendidikan dan kurangnya pelajaran.

The online analysis of air purifiers is varied, but it is still not a problem, for those who do not accept to buy air purifiers, it is still difficult to explain to them why air purifiers can actualize one in their home Can bear the brume of the haven. It is harder to explain why the air bactericide is not boring filtered once, and the charge to consistently broadcast the calm air. There is aswell an insurmountable mindset that we charge "fresh" air, and in actuality we charge apple-pie air afterwards boundless air.

Simple to accept that a bactericide can be absent into a aperture abeyant in the air, the aperture inhaled the aforementioned bulk of calm air complete contaminants, alarming out the complete cleanliness of the CADR bulk afterwards algae [1]. As apparent in the bulk below, the average box draws attenuated air from beneath and assault apple-pie air to the top. In the complete test, the CADR is aswell abstinent in a accepted apprehension environment, the connected aperture of the purifier, and connected almanac of the absorption of pollutants in the analysis chamber, and use this ambit to fit the bulk of the ideal archetypal to infer this ablution The agnate CADR value.

In the case of astringent haze, the capital antecedent of calm chapped bulk is infiltrated by the outside, and the calm abuse antecedent apparent as No. 4 is altered from room, which is difficult to quantify and is not acceptable for abstract calculation. Nitrogen Generation System it is anon alone here. The activating calm declared aloft becomes the bulk at which the particles penetrate, according to the sum of the ante of sedimentation, bactericide purification, and accustomed acquittal of the three ablution pathways.

          Analysis: "Bad" foreign firms drive U.S. manufacturing jobs revival   

By Lesley Wroughton and Howard Schneider

SPARTANBURG/CHARLESTON, South Carolina (Reuters) - Years before Donald Trump began promising to bring back good manufacturing jobs by getting tough with U.S. trade partners, such jobs have already been on the rise, largely thanks to foreign companies now cast as villains in Trump's narrative.

Reuters analysis of federal jobs data shows that out of 656,000 new manufacturing jobs created between 2010 and 2014, two thirds can be attributed to foreign direct investment.

More recent jobs numbers are not yet available, but over $700 billion in foreign capital has poured in over the last two years bringing total foreign investment to $3.7 trillion at the end of 2016, a world record. (Graphic: http://tmsnrt.rs/2sWkzTB)

Now foreign companies that have spent billions of dollars on U.S. factories and local leaders who host them worry that global supply networks that back those investments will fray if Trump makes good on his pledge to roll back trade liberalization.

The U.S. president has threatened to tear up North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico and slap higher tariffs on nations that run trade surpluses with the United States, such as Germany or China. The administration is also discussing tighter immigration rules and more security screening of investment.

The tough message helped sway swing northeastern and Midwestern Rust Belt states Trump's way in the 2016 election, but puts him at odds with companies and local leaders in the south, which has driven the recent growth in manufacturing jobs.

The southern states have voted for Trump, but have also spent decades wooing foreign companies with flexible labor laws, financial incentives and investment in ports, roads and other infrastructure.

POSTER CHILD AND WHIPPING BOY

The courtship has spawned new auto plants from Kentucky to Georgia, and a new Airbus plant in Mobile, Alabama.

Few places highlight the gap between Trump's rhetoric and local aspirations better than Spartanburg in South Carolina.

German carmaker BMW has invested here $8 billion in a 1.2 million square foot (11.15 hectares) assembly plant, which has become the largest single exporter of cars by value from the United States.

South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, a Republican and Trump supporter, credits the German automaker for putting his state on the global investment map.

"The presence of this company changed everything in the trajectory of our state," McMaster said on Monday at an event unveiling BMW's newest X3 sports utility vehicle.

Its Chief Executive Harald Krueger said the carmaker would invest additional $600 million in Spartanburg over the next four years, adding 1,000 jobs to the 9,000-strong workforce, and spend further $200 million on employee training and education.

But the poster child of South Carolina's success also doubles as a whipping boy. In January, BMW's plans to build a plant in Mexico drew Trump's ire and last month the U.S. president was quoted as saying Germany was "very bad" on trade and selling too many cars in the United States.

And even as the company highlights its contribution to the U.S. economy and the benefits of free trade, it is hedging its bets by preparing for a possible protectionist backlash.

Outside of the spotlight, BMW is retooling factories in South Africa and China to build volume models like the X3 SUV, reducing its dependence on Spartanburg.

“We have a big footprint here, and we are flexible enough," Oliver Zipse, BMW's board member responsible for manufacturing, told Reuters. "We will build the X3 not only in Spartanburg, we will split it into South Africa and then to China, so we will have some flexibility to produce cars somewhere else,” he said.

“If something happens at the political level - which we don’t know yet - we are able to have a flexible response.”

The Trump administration has said it welcomes foreign investment and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, who spoke at an opening of a new Samsung Electronics <005930.KS> plant in South Carolina, said such projects showed that "America is becoming an even stronger destination for global businesses looking to grow.”

The southern U.S. states owe much of their success to coastal port authorities and cities that have invested heavily to make their channels and docks fit for shipments to and from China and Mexico.

Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina who has often clashed with Trump, said protectionism would undermine those accomplishments and hurt American workers.

DOOMSDAY SCENARIO

"Negotiate a trade agreement with Europe, modernize NAFTA, don't tear it up," Graham told Reuters at the BMW factory. "We're going in the wrong direction. We need more trade agreements, not less."

Graham noted how low-cost competition from China and Mexico destroyed South Carolina's once thriving textile industry and how the state reinvented itself as a manufacturing hub, bringing the likes of BMW or French tire maker Michelin .

The now humming port city of Charleston has a similar story to tell. When a major navy base shut down in the 1990s wiping out 20,000 jobs, local officials worked to bring foreign manufacturers, which now employ around 10,000 in the three counties around the city and more is set to come.

Mercedes-Benz, part of Daimler AG , is adding 1,300 jobs so it can make its Sprinter van here rather than merely assemble it with imported parts, which also means more business for local suppliers.

Up the road, Volvo Car Group, part of Chinese conglomerate Geely, is due to open its first North American plant next year with a target workforce of 2,000.

Local development officials expect more jobs and investment to come, but worry that some steps discussed by the Trump administration could have a chilling effect.

Claire Gibbons, director of global marketing at the Charleston Regional Development Alliance, said the proposed new tariffs, tougher immigration rules and stricter reviews of foreign investment projects would amount to a "doomsday scenario" for the region.

"This is an education opportunity for us all, for the people making the decisions that don't understand the ramifications."

          Vino, ¿bebida nacional?: las importaciones desde Chile son récord y ya explican el 15% del consumo interno (iProfesional)   


El país vecino se convirtió en el principal proveedor externo. La causa es que los stocks están al límite y que las últimas dos cosechas figuran entre las peores desde los años `60. Sin embargo, alertan que los precios más bajos y las facilidades aduaneras también alientan el negocio


Por estos días, nadie debe verse sorprendido si, recorriendo las góndolas de supermercados, en botellas y envases tetrabrik de vino aparece una leyenda que informe "origen: Chile".

Los principales jugadores de la industria hoy están motorizando un nivel de importaciones desde el país vecino que está marcando un récord histórico.

Los productores vitícolas, que hacía tiempo venían reclamando una recomposición de los precios del kilo de uva –que durante años estuvo amesetado-, ven una amenaza concreta en el continuo ingreso de cientos de camiones con tanques cargados con vino, a través de la cordillera.

El flujo alcanza tal nivel que organizaciones como la Asociación de Viñateros Independientes de San Juan hasta evaluaron realizar piquetes en las rutas para evitar el avance de la competencia chilena.


La tensión en su momento alcanzó tal nivel que, en el marco de un encuentro con productores, el secretario de Agregado de Valor de la Nación, Néstor Roulet, afirmó que el Gobierno estaba monitoreando este flujo de importaciones ante la posibilidad de que se trate de una competencia desleal.

“Estamos viendo si se trata de un caso de dumping y si es así, el Gobierno Nacional se va a involucrar”, disparó el funcionario.


El gobernador de San Juan, Sergio Uñac, es uno de los que más viene protestando por el ingreso de camiones cargados con producto chileno.

"Importar vino sólo para bajar el precio no nos parece una medida acertada”, afirmó recientemente el mandatario provincial.

En este contexto, Mendoza viene de tomar medidas: a comienzos de año, la administración de Alfredo Cornejo aplicó un aumento de la alícuota de Ingresos Brutos al vino importado que ingrese a ese territorio, elevándola del 4% al 6%.

Con esta medida, buscó darle más protección a los productores cuyanos, en medio de las crecientes quejas por estas operaciones.

Para ponerlo en perspectiva, los últimos datos del Instituto Nacional de Vitivinicultura son reveladores: entre enero y mayo se importó vino a granel por 52,6 millones de litros.

El último récord desde que hay registros correspondía a 2010, cuando a lo largo de 12 meses se realizaron compras al exterior por 28,7 millones de litros.

Esto significa que, en apenas cinco meses, ya casi se duplicó ese volumen anual.


Hay otro dato revelador: según el INV, las bodegas despacharon al mercado interno 334,8 millone de litros fraccionados, en parte complementados con la ofertaimportada, dado que los grandes establecimientos envasan el granel que llega del país vecino y lo introducen en el circuito comercial.

Así las cosas, los 52,6 millones de litros que llegaron desde Chile hoy representan el 15% del volumen comercializado en el mercado interno.

O, dicho en otras palabras, por cada 10 litros que hasta mayo se comercializaron en la Argentina, más de 1,5 litros fueron en realidad producidos en el país vecino.

¿Oportunidad o falta de stock?
A medida que se potenció la importación, las críticas de los viñateros se hicieron más fuertes, dado que consideran este flujo como una forma directa de ponerle un tope a los precios de la materia prima en el mercado interno.

Fuentes del sector detallaron a iProfesional que el valor del vino a granel chileno, puesto en la puerta de una bodega en Mendoza, puede ser entre 15% y 25% más económico que el nacional, dado que la escasez generada por la caída de la producción durante las últimas dos cosechas disparó los valores de la materia primera.

Sin embargo, para el consultor Javier Merino, director de Área del Vino, no se trata de maniobras especulativassino de una necesidad real y concreta de abastecer la demanda.

"Las dos últimas cosechas, 2016 y 2017, fueron las peores de los últimos cincuenta años. Por eso, no debe extrañarnos que las importaciones también sean récord", acota.

Granizo, lluvias en los momentos menos propicios y hasta heladas, configuraron un cuadro difícil para varias zonas productivas de Mendoza y San Juan.

El experto agrega que "el año pasado, por la pérdida de parte de la producción, se limpiaron los stocks. Y una segunda vendimia también floja generó que no hoy no haya suficiente vino como para abastecer la demanda".

Según datos del INV, durante esta campaña se recolectaron 19,5 millones de quintales de uva. Si bien esta cifra fue superior a los 17,3 millones del año previo, se trató de un nivel que igualmente estuvo lejos delregistro histórico.


"En los últimos 20 años, el promedio de la cosecha es de cerca de 25 millones de quintales. Es decir que venimos de dos vendimias que se ubicaron muy por debajo y esto afectó los niveles de stock", afirma Carlos Fiochetta, gerente de la Corporación Vitivinícola Argentina (COVIAR).

El directivo señala que "hubo zonas de Mendoza que tradicionalmente tenían rendimientos de unos 10.000 kilos por hectárea pero que, por cuestiones climáticas, los dos últimos años mostraron caídas de hasta el 50%".

Más allá de esto, el directivo confía en que los flujos de importación deberían ir bajando, dado que en estos días están comenzando a liberarse al mercado parte de la cosecha 2017.

"Esto va a ayudar a recomponer los inventarios, por eso la proyección es que las compras a Chile no sigan creciendo e, incluso, bajen con fuerza", apunta Fiochetta.

Cerveza versus vino
Cabe destacar que, según Fiochetta, casi la totalidad de la producción que se importa desde Chile se destina a vinos sin denominación de variedad, que representan cerca del 80% de la oferta. La gran mayoría se comercializa en envases tetrabrik.

Este segmento conforma la base de la pirámide del consumo y es responsables de movilizar el amperímetro de ventas.

En este contexto, Merino advierte que esta bebida es uno de los productos más castigados por el bajón de la demanda.

Cabe destacar que en la Argentina el consumo percápita está estancado en torno a los 25 litros per cápita.

En la década del 70, cuando era común almorzar con vino y la cerveza no arrasaba en el market share, se superaban los 80 litros.

"Hemos llegado a un piso mínimo histórico. Pero así y todo, como las últimas cosechas fueron malas y no hay stock, no hay suficiente volumen. Y esto provocó que se disparara el precio, lo cual es preocupante, porque porcada peso que sube el litro, hay miles de consumidoresque dejan de comprar o buscan alternativas, como la cerveza", apunta Merino.

Si bien el consumo de esta última bebida también se vio afectado por la crisis, lo cierto es que supera holgadamente al vino, con más de 41 litros anuales per cápita.

Por eso, el consultor considera que "estas importaciones no sólo defienden a los consumidores, sino que también a la industria, porque cada litro que se pierde en manos de la cerveza, luego es muy difícilde recuperar".

Sufren las exportaciones


Como consecuencia de los menores stocks, además de tener que importar más, el complejo vitivinícola argentino padeció un desplome de las ventas al exterior.

Según datos del INV, entre enero y mayo se exportaron 127 millones de litros de vino a granel, lo que implicó un derrumbe del 48%.

En tanto que los envíos de mosto concentrado –utilizado por la industria alimenticia como endulzante- totalizaron apenas 21.700 hectolitros, una fuerte baja de casi 53%.

Frente a estos números, Fiochetta afirma que hay dos cuestiones que se potenciaron y que forzaron este escenario: la fuerte suba de precios y los problemas de competitividad cambiaria.

"El vino a granel y el mosto depende mucho del factorprecio. Con las bajas cosechas de los últimos años el producto se volvió muy caro para los exportadores y los dejó fuera de competencia, a lo que se suma el contexto macroeconómico del país", apunta.

Cabe destacar que los despachos al exterior de vino embotellado también se están viendo castigados: hasta mayo se exportaron 744.200 hectolitros, casi 10% menos que en el mismo período del año pasado.

Merino es contundente al afirmar que "en las gamas más bajas de precios, los costos no cierran".

A esto, el experto suma un cambio en las tendencias a nivel mundial: "El mercado internacional se ha puesto muy pesado. Ya no se puede aspirar a crecer a tasas chinas, porque los países productores europeos se pusieron muy competitivos y agresivos en los mercados importadores más dinámicos".

Por eso Merino afirma que "hoy no tenemos ninguna ventaja competitiva diferencial. A lo máximo que podemos aspirar hoy es a crecer en sintonía con la expansión del PBI mundial, es decir, a un promedio del 2% a 3% anual".

Para hacer frente a la situación, desde la Coviar vienen pidiendo una serie de beneficios fundamentales para apuntalar a esta economía regional estratégica.

Entre las medidas, Fiochetta menciona un aumento de los reintegros a las exportaciones o compensacionespara fletes, dados los elevados costos logísticos que enfrentan las bodegas.

          ¿Apertura indiscriminada?: las estadísticas relativizan que la economía esté viviendo una lluvia de importaciones (iProfesional)   


En su plataforma de campaña, Cristina Kirchner denunció que se está entregando el mercado interno a la empresas extranjeras y volvió a encender el debate. En el Gobierno lo niegan pero, como contrapartida, se oponen a volver al "cerrojo" aduanero. Cuáles son los rubros más y menos dinámicos


La polémica por las importaciones se está potenciando en plena carrera hacia las PASO.

El tercero de los 15 puntos que conforman la plataforma de campaña del frente Unidad Ciudadana que impulsa Cristina Kirchner, de hecho, se refiere a la defensa de la industria nacional.

Para ponerlo en perspectiva, este ítem está por encima de otros que forman parte del corazón de las críticas del kirchnerismo hacia el plan de gobierno de Cambiemos, como las tarifas, el endeudamiento externo o la "bicicleta financiera".

En un duro análisis, el documento advierte que "está en marcha un plan de apertura total e indiscriminada de la economía".

Además, señala que "por primera vez desde 1975 cae el PBI y aumentan las importaciones de bienes de consumo", un juego de variables que los economistas que acompañan a Cristina consideran que lo único que genera es "entregar el ya reducido mercado interno a las empresas extranjeras".

La economista Fernanda Vallejos, que encabeza lista de diputados nacionales, también está calentando el debate y centrando sus críticas en el boom de compras al exterior.


La nueva referente K afirmó que hay dos argentinas: una mayoría que "dejó de consumir bienes esenciales", como alimentos, y una minoría que "compra motos o autos de alta gama importados".

La realidad es que en los últimos meses es cierto que se evidenció un mayor movimiento de marcas internacionales.

En el caso del rubro automotor, están desembarcando compañías generalistas como Geely, de China, hasta otras de súper lujo, como Lotus.

En el rubro alimentos, basta recorrer las góndolas de los supermercados para observar una proliferación de quesos de Francia o de marcas de fideos italianos, con salsas de tomate incluidas.

En indumentaria, tiendas como Zara, que hasta hace un par de años tenían un 90% de su oferta conformada por prendas nacionales, ahora ofrecen pantalones, remeras y camisas de Singapur o Tailandia.

Una recorrida por comercios permite comprobar que hay una "efervescencia importadora". ¿Pero alcanza todo esto para considerar esta tendencia como una verdadera avalancha?

En diálogo con iProfesional, el economista Gabriel Caamaño Gómez, del Estudio Ledesma destaca que "el Gobierno, en un principio avanzó bastante rápido, pero luego puso un poco el pie en el freno".

Al analizar la foto actual, el analista precisa que "hoy no se puede hablar de una apertura fulminante. Los datos muestran que se está lejos todavía de los niveles de otros años".

Entre enero y mayo, las importaciones totalizaronu$s24.800 millones, con un alza interanual del 12%. Sin embargo, descontada la variable precios, en volúmenes el alza fue sustancialmente menor: 7,4%.

Además, este registro es menor al récord histórico -para ese período-, que tuvo lugar en pleno kirchnerismo, más precisamente en 2013, antes del reforzamiento del cepo cambiario y aduanero.

En ese entonces, la "factura" a pagar por compras al mundo ascendió a casi u$s29.600 millones.

Es decir que el nivel actual se encuentra un 16% por debajo de ese récord. No sólo eso, el registro de este año incluso está por debajo del de 2011, 2012 y 2014 (ver cuadro).


En este punto, Marcelo Elizondo, ex director de Fundación ExportAr, apunta que "es cierto que las importaciones están creciendo. Pero lo que estamos viendo es una recomposición, porque veníamos de niveles bajísimos".

El analista va más allá y afirma que, en base al ranking del Banco Mundial, la Argentina está entre los cincopaíses con el ratio más bajo entre importaciones y PBI.

En este contexto, Elizondo reflota la fórmula que establece que por cada punto que se pretenda crezca la economía, entonces las compras al mundo deberán hacerlo en tres puntos.

"Esto se debe a que la mayor parte de lo que ingresa del exterior está destinado a la industria", completa.

Sin embargo, los analistas sí reconocen que, especialmente en bienes de consumo, hay ramas deactividad “sensibles” que están sufriendo una mayor competencia importada.

Pero trazan una diferencia: consideran que el problema principal no está causado únicamente por este flujo, sino por la combinación de este factor con el achicamiento del mercado por el enfriamiento del consumo.

La "letra chica" de los bienes de capital
En la última cumbre entre el presidente Mauricio Macri y la cúpula de la Unión Industrial Argentina (UIA), el tema de las importaciones estuvo entre los principales puntos de la agenda del día.

Tras la reunión, el propio titular de la entidad, Miguel Acevedo reveló que, ante la preocupación planteada, los funcionarios respondieron que el incremento de las compras al mundo no hace sino "aumentar la competitividad de las empresas".

Básicamente, porque gran parte de las mismas son maquinarias e insumos para la industria.

¿Se están importando más bienes de capital? Las estadísticas, a grandes rasgos, así lo confirman.

Entre enero y mayo entraron "fierros" por u$s5.334 millones, un 18% más que en 2016, al tiempo que esta cifra se ubicó un 15% por encima del promedio de la última década.

Sin embargo, todavía se encuentra por debajo del récord, que se logró en 2011, cuando se habían superado los u$s5.500 millones en ese rubro (ver cuadro).


Pero hay un detalle: no todo lo que entró fueron máquinas para industrias. El 30% de ese total fue material de transporte, lo que incluye desde aviones hasta trenes y vías férreas.

Es decir que parte del crecimiento de los bienes decapital estuvo explicado por el empuje de la obrapública. De hecho, descontado este efecto, las compras al mundo de maquinaria crecen en realidad a un ritmo del 10%, 8 puntos menos.

En este contexto, desde la Cámara Argentina de Fabricantes de Maquinaria Agrícola (CAFMA) advierten que hay "luces rojas" por los niveles de importación de silos, equipos de fumigación y sembradoras.

Sin embargo, para Caamaño Gómez, "cuando se vienen de tantos años de restricciones, los números pueden confundir más que aclarar".

A modo de ejemplo, entre enero y mayo las importaciones de sembradoras se dispararon un llamativo 1.100%. Básicamente porque ingresaron 65 unidades frente a las 5 que habían ingresado el año pasado.

Insumos y componentes, al compás de la industria
De los casi u$s24.800 millones totales de compras al mundo, casi el 50% correspondió a dos categorías: insumos y partes piezas para bienes de capital.

El primer grupo es un "termómetro" clave que sirve para ver la evolución de la actividad productiva.

Y los números reflejan el pobre dinamismo:

-Durante los primeros cinco meses ingresaron materias primas por u$s6.800 millones.

-Esto representó una tibia suba del 3% en divisas, mientras que en cantidades hubo una caída del 3%. Es decir, el alza estuvo explicado sólo por los mayoresprecios.

-Además, el registro de este año está un 20% por debajo del récord de 2011 e, incluso, es 5,5% menor que el promedio de la última década (ver cuadro).


Esto se vincula al muy lento despegue de la actividadfabril.

Según el Índice de Producción Industrial de FIEL, si bien en mayo se registró un crecimiento interanual del 4,3%, en el acumulado del año el indicador todavía está enterreno negativo (-1%).

Respecto de las importaciones de partes y piezas para bienes de capital, se observa una situación muy similar: las compras al exterior están un 23% por debajo del récord histórico para ese período, alcanzado en 2013.


En este capítulo se incluyen desde agropartes hasta componentes para el ensamblado de celulares, que vienen cayendo por la menor demanda interna de electro.

Autos: fuerte salto

Las compras de autos al exterior, principalmente desde Brasil, sí se han disparado. De hecho, es el rubro más dinámico.

Entre enero y mayo, la "factura" sumó u$s2.430 millones, un 45% más que en igual lapso de 2016 y exactamente el doble que en 2015.

Sin embargo, en este caso tampoco se puede hablar de récord: la marca histórica corresponde a 2013, año en el que casi se toca el millón de 0Km patentados (ver cuadro).


Hay varias razones por las cuales entran más autos:

-En la Argentina ya se dejaron de fabricar varios modelos chicos y populares, como los Chevrolet Classic y Agile o el Renault Clio Mio.

-Este faltante de oferta está siendo complementado con vehículos producidos en Brasil, cuya industria está especializada en autos compactos.

-Además, el país vecino sigue en crisis y está volcando casi el 70% de sus exportaciones en la Argentina. Esta sobreoferta permite que las unidades lleguen a precios bonificados.

-A esto se suma el atraso cambiario, que potenció el mercado de las marcas premium, como Audi, BMW, Mini, con tasas de crecimiento de entre 100% y 300%.

En este contexto, la industria automotriz está operando por debajo del 50% de su capacidad. Esto lo padecen los fabricantes de componentes.

De hecho, la autopartista Hutchinson, del grupo Total Argentina, acaba de iniciar el proceso de cierre de su planta ubicada en Martínez, debido a "la falta de competitividad de la plaza local y el alto costo de mantener la empresa en funcionamiento".

Pese a todo, desde AFAC, la cámara sectorial, no hablan de avalancha. Pero sí de una suerte de "goteo continuo", potenciado por la crisis de Brasil y una mayor agresividad de China.

Más bienes de consumo, menos ventas
Este rubro, junto con el de autos, es de los más dinámicos. De hecho, con u$s3.288 millonesacumulados durante los primeros cinco meses sí se puede hablar de récord.

Así y todo, la cifra es muy similar a la de otros años en los que también se evidenciaba un avance del atraso cambiario, como 2013.


El problema para industrias como la del calzado, textil y línea blanca, por nombrar algunas, es que estos mayores flujos se están combinando con una contracción de la demanda interna.

En algunos casos sí hay un "boom", mientras que en otros, la situación se moderó.

Ariel Schale, director ejecutivo de la Fundación ProTejer, una entidad emblema de los llamados "sectores sensibles", confirma a iProfesional que "si bien es cierto que se incrementó la entrada de textiles, sobre todo de producto terminado, el mayor problema no es tanto este flujo sino la retracción del consumo interno".

"El tema de las importaciones es un factor adicional, pero la ´guadaña´que está afectando al sector es lacaída de las ventas", agrega.

En el caso de la industria del calzado, la entrada de productos de Asia o Brasil creció 21% en volúmenes en el primer cuatrimestre, según Fecoba.

Esta industria todavía ostenta un predominio del 80% del mercado interno, de la mano de cerca de 100 millones de pares anuales.

Sin embargo, con el consumo interno en baja, hubo empresas que debieron cerrar sus puertas, como fue el caso de Herzo o Unisol, que fabricaban zapatillas bajo la marca Puma.

En este contexto, surgen las tensiones. Fabricantes de calzados vienen reclamando más protección, pero en el Gobierno tienen la visión de que una mayor competencia externa le pone un techo a los precios, tal como está sucediendo con las notebooks, tras la eliminación de aranceles.

Dentro de los bienes de consumo también están los alimentos: en el caso de los elaborados, acumulan un alza del 36%, mientras que los básicos (como frutas o verduras), subieron 22%.

Para los analistas, parte de este ingreso está vinculado con el atraso cambiario, que alienta la entrada de fideos italianos, quesos franceses, jamón español y chocolates suizos, por nombrar algunos ejemplos.

Sin embargo, para Caamaño Gómez, se trata de productos de alto valor que no compiten de manera directa con la oferta local y, además, su incidenciasobre el total es muy baja.

En diálogo con iProfesional, uno de los representantes exclusivos de una reconocida marca de pasta italiana, con presencia en supermercados, asegura que “la participación global no llega al 1%”.

En lácteos se registró un salto del 175% de las compras al exterior. Esto explica por qué las góndolas se poblaron de quesos Philadelphia, de camembert con sello de Francia y hasta de chedar de Brasil.

Sin embargo, las cifras son elocuentes: las importaciones sumaron u$s11 millones, mientras que las exportaciones totalizaron u$s290 millones.

“Se vende al mundo por una cifra casi 30 veces superior a lo que ingresa. Esto, sin contar los miles de millones de pesos que mueve el mercado interno con producción nacional”, argumenta una fuente cercana a la Secretaría de Comercio.

El técnico reconoce que en una economía dinámica, el ingreso de lácteos importados "no generaría ruido”, por la bajísima incidencia en el mercado total.

Sin embargo, este flujo cobra relevancia cuando una de las industrias insignia, como SanCor, está atravesando una fuerte crisis, a lo que se suma el drama de las inundaciones y el cierre de cientos de tambos en los últimos años por problemas de rentabilidad.

En frutas sucede algo parecido: las importaciones crecieron 13% en cantidades, según el SENASA. Pero al interior de las estadísticas se observa que:

-De las 22.000 toneladas extra respecto del añopasado, el 50% estuvo explicado por una fruta con bajísima producción local, como es el caso de las bananas.

-Otras 1.500 toneladas correspondieron a paltas, que históricamente ingresan de Chile o México.

En el caso de los limones, hasta el momento ingresaron 1.800 toneladas, un 900% más que en 2016. Sin embargo, para ponerlo en perspectiva, la Argentina produce 1,6 millones de toneladas. De modo que la competencia del exterior equivale al 0,1% del negocio local.

Así las cosas, la foto "macro" muestra que se está lejos de una avalancha, mientras que al interior de algunas ramas de actividad sí hay una creciente competencia, pero que se vio potenciada por la caída del consumo y por un deterioro de las exportaciones, afectadas por el atraso cambiario.

Claro que el debate no hará más que potenciarse, a medida que falten menos días para las PASO.

China’s Ambassador to Mexico, Qiu Xiaoqi. Photo: Reuters

China is open to negotiating a free-trade agreement with Mexico, the official Xinhua news agency reported yesterday, citing the Chinese ambassador to the country, a fillip for Mexico as it faces uncertainty over its trade deals with the US. Qiu Xiaoqi, China’s ambassador to Mexico, said China was willing to discuss a free-trade agreement, although no discussions had been held so far, Xinhua said. Qiu was speaking at an academic event in Mexico City. “If we negotiate a free-trade agreement, this will greatly favour trade exchanges between our two countries. There is no difficulty from China’s side,” he said. “Mexico is China’s second-largest trading partner in Latin America and China is Mexico’s second-largest trading partner in the world. This is a highly important relationship and we have great interest in deepening and broadening these ties.” Mexico is keen to cut its economic reliance on the US out of concern that access to its top trade partner may be restricted by the policies of US President Donald Trump, who has pledged to protect US jobs from going outside the country. China and Mexico have been strengthening ties since late last year as the US has stepped back from...
          Cavium and China Unicom trial 5G user cases on M-CORD   
Cavium, a provider of semiconductor products for enterprise, data centre, wired and wireless networking, and China Unicom announced a targeted program for the testing of 5G use cases on a M-CORD SDN/NFV platform leveraging Cavium's silicon-based white box hardware in M-CORD racks populated with ThunderX ARM-based data centre COTS servers and XPliant programmable SDN Ethernet-based white box switches.

Under the program, China Unicom and Cavium plan to shortly commence trials in a number of locations across mainland China to explore the potential of the new service.

Cavium and China Unicom are specifically demonstrating multi-access edge computing (MEC) use cases developed through a previously announced collaboration based on the ON.Lab M-CORD (Mobile Central Office Re-architected as a data centre) SDN/NFV platform at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai.

The demonstration involves a M-CORD SDN/NFV software platform and hardware rack integrated with virtualised and disaggregated mobile infrastructure elements from the edge of the RAN to distributed mobile core and the ONOS and XOS SDN and orchestration software.

The companies stated that this architecture is designed to enable turnkey operation in any central office or edge data centre for a full NFV C-RAN deployment. The solution is based on a Cavium-powered rack that combines the ThunderX ARM based data centre servers with the programmable XPliant Ethernet leaf and spine SDN switches to provide a full platform for M-CORD.

Regarding the latest project, Raj Singh, VP and GM of the network and communication group at Cavium, said, "Cavium is collaborating with China Unicom to explore 5G target use cases leveraging the M-CORD SDN/NFV platform and working towards field deployment… a homogenous hardware architecture optimised for NFV and 5G is a pre-requisite for field deployments".



  • Earlier this year, Radisys and China Unicom announced they had partnered to build and integrate M-CORD development PODs featuring open source software. For the project Radisys, acting as systems integrator, used the CORD open reference implementation to enable cloud agility and improved economics in China Unicom's network. The companies also planned to develop deployment scenarios for the solution in the China Unicom network.
  • The resulting platform was intended to support future 5G services by enabling mobile edge services, virtualised RAN and virtualised EPC. The companies also planned to develop an open reference implementations of a virtualised RAN and next-generation mobile core architecture.

          Spirent supports testing of New H3C 100 GBE switch   
Spirent Communications, a supplier of network test and measurement solutions, announced that it supported New H3C in conducting what is believed to be the highest density 100 Gbit/s data centre switch test.

Spirent also announced it had partnered with the China Mobile Research Institute (CMRI) to demonstrate automated testing of virtual core networks.

100 Gbit/s switch testing

The test, completed by Spirent and the New H3C Group and moderated by independent test lab Network Test, demonstrated the line-rate forwarding capacity and hyper-scale IP route announcement capacity of the H3C S12500X-AF chassis loaded with 100 Gbit/s ports and achieving a density of 768 x 100G ports per chassis. The S12500X-AF switch can support 48 x 100 Gbit/s QSFP28 pluggable optical modules per slot.

The test involved Spirent TestCenter and the N11U chassis, representing Spirent's flagship network performance test solution, equipped with the high density dX3 12-port 100 Gbit/s test modules designed to verify next-generation data centre architectures and routers.

For the testing, Spirent TestCenter generated 100 Gbit/s line-rate transaction traffic of various frame lengths and provided packet loss, latency, jitter, frame sequence, code errors and FCS error analytics to reflect the quality of transmission in real time.

The Spirent dX3 quint-speed test module can support twelve 100 or 40 Gbit/s ports per slot, 25 x 50 Gbit/s ports, or 48 x 25/10 Gbit/s ports per slot. It also supports key interface features such as FEC, auto-negotiation and Link Training. The module can be used to verify data plane QoS for hyper-dense network devices at line-rate, and for testing complex routing, data centre and access protocols on switches and routers.

Virtual core network testing

Separately Spirent announced a collaboration with the China Mobile Research Institute (CMRI) to demonstrate automated testing of virtual core networks at Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai. Spirent noted that the demonstration is part of a joint effort to develop a methodology for automated testing of the functionality and performance of the China Mobile TIC (Telecom Infrastructure Cloud).

The partners plans to incorporate the test methodology into an automated testing system developed by CMRI to speed testing of services in operational virtual core networks and to form part of the complete vEPC environment developed by CMRI.

At MWC, Spirent has provided the test engines for the demonstration, including the virtualised mobile core network emulation and performance testing tool, Landslide Virtual, and the automated testing platform, iTest. The solutions automate performance and functionality tests used to develop, spin-up and monitor the vEPC. In addition, devops models have been developed for the test methodologies, allowing tests to be automated and incorporated into the virtualised network.

          Keeping an eye on Alibaba Cloud, Aliyun – Part 1   
Alibaba's Jack Ma made headlines across the world last week by laying out a plan for rapid global expansion of China's e-commerce behemoth. In an Investor Conference held at the company's Xixi headquarters in Hangzhou, China, Ma made the bold claim that Alibaba could reach $1 trillion in gross merchandise value by 2021 by becoming the primary online store for 2 billion people, as well as by expanding into new areas, one of which is the international public cloud services business. While Alibaba's investor event was overshadowed somewhat by the news that Amazon will spend $13.7 billion in cash to acquire Whole Foods, the premium U.S. grocery store chain, Jack Ma unveiled a strategy with clear potential to disrupt the cloud market.

Meanwhile, business at Alibaba Group (NYSE: BABA) is 'fantastic' and is only going to get better this year, according to the company CFO. For the most recent fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2017, the company reported revenue of RMB 38,579 million ($5,605 million), an increase of 60% year-over-year, including:

•   Revenue from core commerce of RMB31,570 million ($4,587 million), up 47% year-over-year.

•   Revenue from cloud computing of RMB 2,163 million ($314 million), up 103% year-over-year.

•   Revenue from digital media and entertainment of RMB 3,927 million ($571 million), up 234% year-over-year.

Growth at the parent company is primarily being driven by the steady increase in active buyers on its ecommerce platforms, both in numbers and in the value of goods and services being transacted. Annual active buyers reached 454 million, an increase of 31 million from the 12-month period ended on March 31, 2016. Mobile monthly active users (MAUs) on Alibaba Group’s China retail marketplaces reached 507 million in March, up 97 million over March 2016. Gross merchandise volume (GMV) transacted on Alibaba’s China retail marketplaces in fiscal year 2017 was RMB 3,767 billion ($547 billion), up 22% compared to RMB 3,092 billion in fiscal year 2016.

Alibaba Cloud, or Aliyun as it is known in Chinese, is firmly established as the leading infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud in mainland China and is moving rapidly to become a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) provider and a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) retailer. Some important Aliyun metrics emerged from the Investor presentation, including (with additional commentary):

·         Public cloud is growing: based on Gartner's figures from March 2017, Aliyun estimates the global public cloud market will amount to $245 billion in 2017, growing to $436 billion in 2021, a 15.9% CAGR.

·         China’s public cloud market is growing even faster, with Gartner figures showing China’s public cloud market, valued at $14 billion this year, growing to $25 billion in 2021, a 17.2% CAGR; by 2021, China’s share of the global public cloud market would still be under 6%, which seems odd given the country's share of global GDP is much higher and that ecommerce, social media and mobile technologies are booming in China - why so low versus the U.S. market?

·         Aliyun cited figures from IDC Tracker 2016 H1/H2 Global Cloud Market (IaaS), indicating it currently is the No.4 player in public cloud services worldwide, but with only a 3.2% share; No.1 was AWS, $8.4 billion, 46.1% share; No. 2 Microsoft, $1.4 billion, 7.6% share; No.3 IBM, $1.0 billion, 5.8% share; No.4 Alibaba, $0.57 billion, 3.2% share; No.5 Google, $0.519 billion, 2.9% share.

Clearly, AWS is dominating the public cloud market, especially in the U.S. The other U.S. public cloud players are investing aggressively to catch up and they too seem to have ambitions that reach to the sky. Alibaba's Jack Ma has previously been quoted in the press as saying that Alibaba would catch and surpass Amazon. When it comes to cloud services at least, this will be extremely difficult given its current 3.2% share versus AWS’ 46.1% share, and a capex budget that appears decisively smaller.

In its home market of China, Aliyun's IaaS revenue is equivalent to the next seven players combined. The numbers cited in IDC Tracker 2016 H1/H2 Global Cloud Market are as follows:

·         No.1 – Alibaba Group, $587 million, 40.7% market share

·         No.2 - China Telecom, $123 million, 8.5%

·         No.3 – Tencent, $106 million, 7.3%

·         No.4 – Kingsoft, $87 million, 6.0%

·         No.5 – Ucloud, $79 million, 5.5%

·         No.6 – Microsoft, $72 million, 5.0%

·         No.7 – China Unicom, $67 million, 4.6%

·         No.8 – AWS, $55 million, 3.8%

In addition, as of March 31, 2017 Aliyun had 874,000 paying customers, had 15 data centres worldwide and had 186 cloud service offers. It also claims a 96.7% retention rate amongst its top paying customers in Q1 2017 compared to a year earlier.

Over one-third of China’s Top 500 companies are on Alibaba Cloud, including China's Public Safety Bureau (PSB), CCTV, Sinopec, Sina Weibo, Xinhua News Agency,Toutiao, Geely, Mango TV, CEA, Quanmin Live, Panda TV and DJI, while two-thirds of Chinese Unicorn companies are on Alibaba Cloud. Global Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) now available on Aliyun include Accenture, SAP, Docker, here, SUSE, Haivision, Wowza, AppScale, AppEX, Hillstone, Checkpoint Software Technologies, Hitachi Data Systems and Red Hat.


Aliyun’s Computing Conference 2016 was attended by over 40,000 developers in person, with more than 7 million viewers online. At its investor conference, Aliyun also disclosed a number of major international brands that are now using its services, including Schneider Electric, Shisheido, Philips, Nestle and Vodafone, which is a good start. Nevertheless, attracting international companies will be harder, first, because Alibaba has only just recently begun building data centres outside of China, and two, they will be much less known and trusted than established brands such as IBM.


          Nokia – IP networks re-imagined   
Recently we have seen Cisco predict that busy hour global IP traffic will grow 4.6-fold (35% CAGR) from 2016 to 2021, reaching 4.3 Pb/s by 2021, compared to average Internet traffic that will grow 3.2-fold (26% CAGR) over the same period to reach 717 Tb/s by 2021. The latest edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report, released earlier this week, calculates that the total traffic in mobile networks increased by 70% between the end of Q1 2016 and the end of Q1 2017. And now, Nokia Bell Labs has just announced its own prediction: IP traffic will more than double in the next five years, reaching 330 exabytes per month by 2022 while growing at a 25% CAGR. The company anticipates that peak data rates will grow even faster at nearly 40% annually. Nokia Bell Labs also predicts that 3D/4K/UHD will experience a 4.79x growth from 2017 – 22, that wireless traffic will experience 7.5x growth from 2017 – 22, and that worldwide IoT devices to grow from 12bn in 2017 to 100bn in 2025.

Nokia unveils next gen networking processing engine

Nokia's processing engine sets the stage for perhaps the most significant announcement from the company since the merger of Alcatel-Lucent and Nokia Siemens Networks in 2015. In a press event entitled 'IP networks reimagined', Nokia unveiled its FP4 silicon, featuring the 'first' 2.4 Tbit/s network processor, up to 6x more powerful than processors currently available. The proprietary chipset is designed for a new class of petabit-class routers.

Core routers traditionally have been the 'big iron' that powers the heart of the Internet. It is a product category dominated by Cisco, Huawei, Juniper and Nokia, including via its existing 7950 XRS routing platform. However, the market has been in flux. Earlier this month, Dell’Oro Group reported a significant break in Q1 17 with Huawei taking the top spot from Cisco in the core router market for the first time. The report also found Huawei taking over second spot from Nokia in the SP edge router and CES market. The primary reason cited for this shift is that the SP core routing business is only growing at a low single-digit rate, while China Mobile is defying the trend with significant investments in their IP core backbone, for which Huawei is the lead supplier. Nevertheless, the overall predictions for rapid growth in IP traffic over the coming five years makes it more likely that service providers will need a significant refresh of their core backbones to handle hundreds of 100 or 400 Gbit/s connections at major nodes.

Nokia's previous generation FP3 chipset, unveiled by Alcatel-Lucent in June 2011 and launched in 2012, packed 288 RISC cores operating at 1 GHz and leveraged 40 nm process technology; the FP2 chipset offered 112 cores at 840 MHz and was built in 90 nm. This network processor lineage can be traced back to TiMetra Networks, a start-up based in Mountain View, California that launched its first carrier-class routing platforms in 2003.

TiMetra, which was headed by Basil Alwan, was acquired by Alcatel-Lucent later in 2003 for approximately $150 million in stock. The product line went on to become the highly successful 7450, 7750 and eventually 7950 carrier platforms - the basis for the IP division at Alcatel-Lucent. Not bad for an idea from a small start-up to grow into the star platform underpinning all of Alcatel-Lucent + Nokia Siemens Networks.

In a launch day webcast, Basil Alwan, now president of Nokia's IP/Optical Networks business group, said we are moving into a new phase of the Internet requiring 'cloud-scale routing'. First, he noted that there is market confusion between Internet-class routers and core data centre switches, which are being used to power the hyperscale infrastructure of the Internet content providers. High-end, data centre spine switches are capable of routing packets at high rates and can handle access control lists (ACLs). Likewise, conventional big iron core routers can switch data flows, and are sometimes deployed in data centres. However, there have been tradeoffs when this role reversal happens. Nokia's new FP4 chipset aims to fix that.

First multi-terabit NPU silicon

Six years have passed since the FP3, or roughly two cycles in the evolution of Moore's Law, so naturally one would expect the new silicon to be smaller, faster and more powerful and efficient. But Alwan said the company took its time to rethink how the packet processing works at the silicon level. To begin with, Nokia redesigned the onboard memory, employing 2.5D and 3D layouts on 16 nm Fin Field Effect Transistor (FinFET) technology. The single chip contains 22 dies, including memory stacks and control logic. It runs at 2.4 Tbit/s half-duplex, or 6x more capacity than the current generation 400 Gbit/s FP3 chipset. The FP4 will support full terabit IP flows. All conventional routing capabilities are included. Deep classification capabilities include enhanced packet intelligence and control, policy controls, telemetry and security.

The FP4 could be used to provide an in-service upgrade to Nokia's current line of core routers and carrier switches. It will also be used to power a new family of 7750 SR-s series routers designed for single-node, cloud scale density. In terms of specs, the SR-s boasts a 144 Tbit/s configuration supporting port densities of up to 144 future terabit links, 288 x 400 Gbit/s ports, or 1,440 100 Gigabit Ethernet ports. Absolute capacity could be doubled for a maximum of 288 Tbit/s configuration. It runs the same software as the company's widely-deployed systems. The first 7750 SR-s boxes are already running in Nokia labs and the first commercial shipments are expected in Q4.

Nokia is also introducing a chassis extension option to push its router into petabit territory. Without using the switching shelf concept employed in the multi-chassis designs of its competitors, Nokia is offering the means to integrate up to six of its 7750 SRS-s routers into a single system. This results in 576 Tbit/s of capacity, enough for densities of up to 2,880 x 100 GBE ports or 720 x 400 Gbit/s ports. Adding up the numbers, it is not truly petabit-class, but at 576 Tbit/s it is more than halfway there.

Network telemetry leads to security
Another interesting twist concerns security and petabit-class routing. In December 2016, Nokia agreed to acquire Deepfield, a start-up specialising in real-time analytics for IP network performance management and security. Deepfield, founded in 2011 and based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has developed an analytics platform that identifies over 30,000 popular cloud applications and services. Its Internet Genome tracks how traffic runs to and through networks to reach subscribers, in real time, and without the need for probes, taps and monitors in the network itself. At the time of the deal, Nokia said it would integrate Deepfield big data analytics with the dynamic control capabilities of open SDN platforms, such as the Nokia Network Services Platform (NSP) and Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Platform (VSP).

Expanding on this idea, Alwan said Deepfield can really leverage the routers rather than probes to understand what is happening to the traffic. Fewer probes mean lower investment. More importantly, Deepfield could be used to track DDoS attacks passing through the core of the network rather than at the edge destination target. The new FP4 silicon is said to be a very good match for this application.


          Huawei Marine Selected for Cameroon-Brazil Subsea cable   
Huawei Marine, the joint venture between Huawei Technologies and UK-based Global Marine Systems, announced it has been contracted by China Unicom and Cameroon government-owned infrastructure operator Camtel to construct the South Atlantic Inter Link (SAIL), marking the official commencement of the SAIL cable system implementation phase.

Funded with investment from China Unicom and Camtel, the SAIL system will link Cameroon and Brazil and span around 6,000 km. The cable system will comprise 4 fibre pairs and offer a design capacity of 32 Tbit/s based on Huawei Marine’s advanced 100 Gbit/s technology.

The SAIL system will be the first direct access cable to connect Africa and South America, and on completion is designed to provide a reliable, high-quality intercontinental communications infrastructure between the two developing regions.



  • Huawei Marine originally announced that it had been commissioned to construct the Cameroon-Brazil cable system, initially called Cameroon-Brazil Cable System (CBCS), in October 2015.
  • Also in 2015, Huawei Marine announced it had started marine installation of the Nigeria-Cameroon Submarine Cable System (NCSCS), Cameroon's first wholly-owned submarine cable and part funded by the Cameroon government. Spanning around 1,100 km, the NCSCS directly connects Kribi in Cameroon with Lagos in Nigeria and will deliver 12.8 Tbit/s of capacity.
  • Camtel states that to date it has deployed more than 8,000 km of fibre that connects the ten regional chief towns in Cameroon, as well as around 60 divisional/sub-divisional chief towns and hundreds of rural communities; it also provides connectivity to CEMAC region countries including Chad. The company is aiming to build a network spanning over 20,000 km.


          China Telecom and Orange Business Services Target IoT   
China Telecom and Orange Business Services announced the extension of their strategic partnership into the IoT space during the launch event of eSurfing on the Silk Road, IoT with the World in Shanghai, China, with the new cooperation designed to enable the companies to serve enterprise customers via a combined footprint across three continents.

Through the expanded agreement, multinational customers of China Telecom and Orange will be able to deploy IoT and machine-to-machine (M2M) services across each other's networks.

China Telecom enterprise customers with outbound IoT businesses can deploy their assets and offerings on the Orange networks in Europe and Africa, while Orange's global enterprise customers can access the Chinese market utilising China Telecom's IoT network resources and business capabilities. In addition, both partners propose a global solution to address local IoT connectivity requirements leveraging eUICC capabilities and the commonly deployed Device Connectivity Platform from Ericsson.

China Telecom and Orange plan to cooperate commercially and technically to create new service models designed to address global IoT opportunities. Under the agreement, Orange will become one of China Telecom's preferred partners for connectivity in Europe and Africa, while China Telecom will support Orange in delivering connectivity in China.

The agreement also encompasses joint exploration of the potential for enhancing existing IoT capabilities and the application of new technologies such as mobile IoT in the global market.

Commenting on the partnership, Mr. Deng Xiao Feng, MD of global business department of China Telecom, said, "China is one of the fastest growing markets for IoT applications, China Telecom is working with Orange to push for the building of an advanced IoT solution to capture global IoT opportunities… China Telecom (and) Orange will address the increasing IoT demand and… support enterprise customers with the IoT Open Platform".


          ZTE and China Mobile showcase 5G eMBB   
ZTE announced at Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai the launch of a live 5G field test in Guangdong, deployed with China Mobile and designed to showcase an enhanced 5G Mobile Broadband (eMBB) experience using 100 MHz bandwidth and delivering a single-user rate of up to 2 Gbit/s.

China Mobile and ZTE conducted the 5G field test in Guangzhou University Town, selected to represent a typical high-traffic scenario and also a key 'pilot field' for enhancing the user experience in 5G eMBB scenarios. ZTE noted that its 3.5 GHz NR (new radio) base station product was used for the 5G field test in Guangzhou.

For the next stage of testing, the companies will carry out multi-site networking tests to evaluate wireless coverage, throughput, mobility, delay and other 5G networking indicators.

As one of China Mobile's strategic 5G partners, ZTE is providing the operator with a range of products, including 5G RANs and virtual core networks (VCNs). In addition, ZTE has been providing support for research covering key technologies, the definition of product specifications and testing of pilot networks to help China Mobile meet its strategic goals.

ZTE and China Mobile have previously carried out collaboration in the areas of 2G, 3G and 4G, as well as currently into 5G. As part of this work, in 2016 ZTE signed a 5G strategic cooperation memorandum with China Mobile, and ZTE's Pre5G massive MIMO base stations have been deployed into the existing network of China Mobile.


* In February this year, ZTE, Qualcomm and China Mobile jointly announced that they planned to conduct interoperability tests based on 5G NR specifications and over the air (OTA) field tests designed to facilitate large-scale verification and commercialisation of the 5G NR technology. ZTE noted that in 2017 it initiated the non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) project, a core element of the 5G NR program.

* Recently, ZTE and China Mobile Quanzhou Branch announced the commercial deployment of 3D-MIMO, also termed Pre5G massive MIMO, in the city of Quanzhou, Fujian province. ZTE stated that with 16 commercial terminals connected, it achieved single-carrier downlink peak cell rate of 730 Mbit/s, with a single-carrier 16-stream downlink peak rate using 3D-MIMO of up to 700 Mbit/s. In addition, a three-carrier rate of up to 2.1 Gbit/s was achieved.


          MPLS-TP OpenFlow extensions approved   
ZTE announced that the 'MPLS-TP OpenFlow Protocol Extensions for SPTN' (ONF TS-029) technical document proposed by China Mobile has become a formal standard of the ONF (Open Networking Foundation) after receiving unanimous approval from the forum's board of directors.

The release of MPLS-TP OpenFlow Protocol Extensions for SPTN is intended to provide a foundation for interworking between devices from heterogeneous vendors, and between devices and controllers. ZTE noted that China Mobile's large-scale deployment of software-defined packet transport network (SPTN) devices provides an example for other operators, while five operators are believed to be planning to implement the standard in the near future.

ZTE stated that packet transport network (PTN) technology features separate forwarding/control and a centralised management architecture, while OpenFlow offers an open protocol that performs programmable control for flow tables on the forwarding plane. In addition, an abstract adaptation layer supporting OpenFlow to encapsulate the existing forwarding functions of PTN is intended to provide an efficient means of enabling PTN devices with open and software-defined features.

Additionally, this design is expected to facilitate the commercialisation of PTN devices supporting SDN and thereby accelerate the development of the SPTN supply chain.

It was noted that China Mobile has a longstanding commitment to SPTN technology, in mid-2015, working with ZTE, Broadcom and Microsemi, establishing a discussion group within the ONF to research device specifications for SPTN based on OpenFlow and table type pattern (TTP).

In November 2015, a first ONF draft was proposed based on SPTN TTP that extended flow tables, group tables and related fields supporting MPLS-TP, expanded the OF-Config protocol to support QOS, OAM, protection and alarm performance configuration, and leveraged local OAM processing units to ensure a 50 ms protection switching time.

In tandem with the draft specification, China Mobile also organised lab tests for SPTN devices complying with the specifications and amended the document in accordance with the test results. The draft document was subsequently passed for review by experts from a number of ONF technical groups and adopted as a formal standard.

ZTE stated that MPLS-TP OpenFlow Protocol Extensions for SPTN standard is supported by the SPTN industrial supply chain, including chip manufacturers Broadcom, Microsemi, Centec and Marvell, equipment providers ZTE, Ericsson, Fiberhome, Raisecom, Greenwell, Chuling and Huahuan, instrument manufacturer Spirent and open source software Open Daylight and ONOS.

To date it is estimated that more than 50 operators have deployed MPLS-TP-based PTN devices at scale, including China Mobile, which purchased around 590,000 group customer devices compliant with the SPTN TTP standard in 2016. In addition, six equipment vendors have worked with China Mobile to deploy the networks.

ФАНТАСТИКА (ИИ)
Из машины (Ex Machina). Великобритания, 2014. Сценарист и режиссёр – Алекс Гарленд. В главных ролях: Донал Глисон, Алисия Викандер, Оскар Айзек.

Ещё один фильм на тему взаимоотношений творца и творения, где роль первого исполняет человек, а второго – искусственный интеллект.

Юный айтишник Калеб (Донал Глисон) выигрывает конкурс на вакансию тестировщика искусственного интеллекта. Он прибывает в дом знаменитого программиста-миллиардера Натана (Оскар Айзек), стоящий где-то на отшибе цивилизации. Его задачей оказывается провести тест Тьюринга с антропоморфной машиной, выглядящей как молодая красивая женщина (Алисия Викандер). Через некоторое время Калеб заподозрит, что он и сам является подопытным для Натана...

Дебютная режиссёрская работа известного сценариста Алекса Гарленда – это спокойное камерное повествование, довольно крепкая интрига, философский подтекст, необычные для кино ракурсы, имитирующие взгляд электронной камеры видеонаблюдения, но, к сожалению, есть и штампы, причём весьма распространённые, а это снижает интерес к картине. Впрочем, в целом весьма неплохо. Напомнило (косвенно) "Луну-2112" и "Превосходство". 7 из 11.

          手の甲が荒れる・・・   

農作業のとき、軍手や、使い捨てのゴム手袋をはめていましたが、手の甲のあれが酷くて使うのをやめてしまいました。

軍手や使い捨てのゴム手袋・・・、ほとんどが、made in china・・・。筆者の場合、素材に含まれている添加化学性物質で接触性皮膚炎になるようで、最近はほとんど使っていません。しかし、皮膚炎がおさまりかけたころに痒みが発生し、夜、寝ている間にひっかくので、なかなか完治できないでいました。

行き付けのスーパーの薬局で、薬剤師の方からいろいろアドバイスを受けたのですが、一番効果的なのは、完治するまで農作業をやめることだとか・・・。それも難しいので、万策尽きた状態に陥っていたのですが、昨夜、寝る前に、

1.手の甲の消毒する
2.傷薬を塗る
3.その上からオリーブオイルを塗る

ことにしました。すると、朝まで快眠・・・。手の甲の痒みで、目が覚めることはありませんでした。寝ている間だけでなく、農作業前に、手の甲にオリーブオイルを塗れば、日焼け・かぶれなどを防止することができそうです。昨夜塗ったのは、食用のオリーブオイルですが、日本薬局方のオリーブオイルも薬局で簡単に入手できそうなので、今日、会津若松の河東のドラッグストアーで購入することにしました。妻の実家から一番近いドラッグストアーです。

          China says legally binding Hong Kong handover treaty with Britain has 'no practical significance'   
none
          Thoughts on Haider   
Watched Haider. Liked it a lot. But it certainly isn't Vishal Bhardwaj's best as some reviewers have suggested. It wasn't a masterpiece like Maqbool and Blue Umbrella were. It had its problems. And the problems weren't fundamental, but cosmetic. Which makes the problems all the more annoying.

It seemed like Michaelangelo's David wearing underwear because its creator didn't want some people to blush. Or the Mona Lisa with eyebrows penciled on at the last minute because Leonardo didn't want to deal with "but where are the eyebrows?" questions.  

You can see that there was a masterpiece hidden in there, but was robbed of its true form due to lack of total conviction or concerns about propriety. Ironically, it seems like Vishal had his own "to be or not to be" struggle about how much to push the envelope. And ended up undermining the end product. Not too much, but just enough to make it fall short of greatness.

Here are some disjointed thoughts about the movie.

1) The "Anti-Army" charges

Many self-proclaimed nationalists on Twitter have been bashing the film as being "anti-army". Haider isn't nearly as anti-army as Maqbool was "anti-police". Vishal cast two corrupt police officers in the role of the witches from Macbeth, and gave them a lot more mischief to do. Heck, Haider isn't even as anti-army as Hum Aapke Hai Koun is "anti-stairs" because if not for those damn stairs, Pooja would've been alive and Nisha and Prem would've gotten married without Tuffy having to exert himself.

A lot of this "nationalist" outrage against Haider is a by-product of the mass delusion that most Indians have willingly been a part of and ardently sought to perpetuate. The delusion that the idea of India is more inclusive and benign than it actually is. That if some folks in Kashmir or in the North-East don't consider themselves Indian, it's just stupid, their fault, and totally the handiwork of Pakistan and/or China. And....most importantly....that our army can do no wrong. It can't do anything dishonorable or horrible.

But our army sometimes.....often.... does dishonorable or horrible things. Mostly because as Shivam Vij explains, that's the army's job in situations like 1990s Kashmir.

If you watch the movie without having this naive hyper-nationalized romanticized notion of what the Indian army is, Haider actually seems to go somewhat out of its way to be respectful to the army and justify its perceived excesses. When a home is blown up, it is because a bonafide terrorist really is hiding in it. People are are tortured either are or are strongly suspected of being terrorists trained by Pakistan. And if innocent people are being incarcerated or killed, it's not the army's fault. It is due to misinformation from the conniving two-faced Ikhwan types.

2) Excessive Soapbox Usage

Vishal has so far occupied a level higher than other Indian directors because of how nuanced, layered, and yet powerful his scripts are. You're not hit over the head with blatant exposition of irony, tragedy, or even humor. 

Haider was a bit too "speechy". And I don't mean the soliloquies that Hamlet is famous for. In fact most of those were excised. I mean speechy in the sense that Vishal and Basharat Peer seeme to be almost compelled to give us a preachy soapbox exposition of almost every political perspective in the Kashmir issue. 

So you have the speech about Nehru's betrayal, and the speech about Kashmiri Pandits, and the speech about how violence isn't the answer, and the speech about how "azadi" is synonymous with joining Pakistan, and the speech about.......about about about......

To make matters worse, not only were the speeches utterly banal, but they also served as speed-breakers in the narrative. They were less Vishal Bhardwaj and more Mani Ratnam or Aaron Sorkin. 

The most poignant points about the whole issue were actually made in several vintage Vishal scenes, either sub-textually or organically. The chutzpah-AFSPA dialog for instance or the scene in which Basharat himself has a cameo. 

All those soapbox scenes, the movie could have done without. I couldn't help but feel that they were there for Vishal to hedge politically. Every one of those scenes was meant to mollify or assuage one of the stakeholders in  the Kashmir issue. It's like Vishal had a checklist and wanted to make sure everyone got their spiel in and nobody felt left-out. The end result ironically is that you will find several Indian nationalists, Pakistanis, pro-freedom Kashmiris, Kashmiri Pandits, and so on who think the movie is unfair to their perspective.  

3) Shahid Kapoor

Shahid put in a solid effort. He tried hard and stretched himself to the maximum. But it simply wasn't good enough. Especially in the second half when Hamlet in the play really comes into his element, Shahid Kapoor seemed instead to be channeling Sridevi from Sadma. 

The movie would've been better served by casting not Shahid, but an actor who won accolades for playing a guy named Shahid - Rajkumar Rao. At several points in the movie when Shahid's earnest but inadequate emoting was making me cringe, I closed my eyes and tried to imagine Rajkumar Rao in the same scene.

          Advice for International Masters Students Cold-Call Emailing Business School Professors   
It is that time of the year again for me as an assistant professor in an American business school. August-September, the start of the academic year. When I get at least a handful of emails everyday from just-arrived international Masters students, typically from India and China, asking about Research Assistant (RA) or Teaching Assistant (TA) positions. I usually send a prompt reply telling them I have no positions available and wish them luck. Most other people in my place in business schools just ignore the mails and/or delete them.

This post is meant to explain why I almost always send summary rejections and why most others ignore or delete the emails.

The key to this explanation is the almost unique nature of the microcosm that are business schools. Specifically, research-oriented business schools that co-exist with prestigious engineering schools in the same university such as mine.

Research in business schools is very different from research in engineering schools. In engineering schools, research has a lot to do with winning 6-7 figure grants and patents. That is the nature of the engineering world. In business schools, the incentives for tenure-track research professors are different. The nature of our field is such that there are few, if any, opportunities for patents and big grants. In our field, research productivity is measured by publications in top level journals.  

The other aspect of business research is the cost element. The reason we don't care as much about grants is that our research is nowhere as expensive to conduct as engineering research. We don't need expensive equipment, months long experiments, and suchlike. Most business research is conducted using secondary data or individual behavioral experiments. The most expensive equipment we need is limited to powerful computers to do our analysis. 

We don't have as many conferences to go to. In each of the sub-fields of business (such as Finance, Marketing, Management etc), there are two, maybe three MUST-ATTEND conferences each year. Our conferences aren't as selective as engineering conferences in terms of who gets to present. Obviously, "conference proceedings" are a non-factor in tenuring decisions when it comes to business school faculty. What matter are publications.

Basically, our research doesn't cost that much. That's the cost side.

Now on to the revenue side. Most business schools have MBA programs that charge tuition way higher than the average program. Most MBA programs don't offer any funding. MBA programs earn business schools a lot of money. Then there are undergraduate programs. Undergrad business programs are very popular in most schools in the US. So business schools get a decent chunk of change from the universities for that. Then there are endowments, consulting fees, and other revenue opportunities.

So to summarize what I have said so far, business schools in the US have a higher revenue than other schools, and have lower research costs than other schools. And, to reiterate, faculty research is measured in terms of publications in top journals, not patents, conference proceedings, or grants. Not that there are that many business-centric grants anyway.

As a result, here is how the typical contract for a typical tenure-track faculty member in a research-oriented business school works. We get a salary. And we get a research budget from our business school that is roughly $10,000-50,000 per year. 

These amounts might be relatively paltry for engineering professors who need to buy expensive equipment and need to hire several grad students to take care of the equipment and run experiments. But in business schools, that amount is plenty. 

Then there's the unique nature of business school PhD programs. They are geared exclusively towards academia. Which means the program is designed only to send graduates into academic positions, NOT industry positions. 99.9% of marketing PhDs will become marketing professors, not work in marketing jobs in the industry. 99.9% of management PhDs will become management professors, not work in management jobs in the industry. And so on.

PhD programs in business schools will also have a tiny intake compared to engineering schools. In a typical top-50 or even top-100 research business school in the US, the total incoming PhD class size every year will be about 15, with 2-3 students dedicated to sub-fields such as finance, marketing, management, etc.

In business schools, these PhD students are fully funded and paid a stipend by the business school. In return, they have to work 20 hours a week each for tenure track professors.

(Sidebar: the most "privileged" international grad students in any school are business school PhDs. They are assured of tuition waivers and stipends for at least 4 years from the school itself, and not tied to any Professor like in engineering schools. They also get academic positions relatively easily without having to do postdocs.)

Now, each department will have a roughly 1:1 ratio between tenure track professors and PhD students. Part of each tenure track professor's contract is 10 hours or "free" RA work from an assigned PhD student. Free as in, the professor doesn't pay the student. The business school does. And the business school pays for the tuition.

So now we come to the main point. Most of us business school professors have a PhD student assigned to work with us without us paying anything. Our research budgets, given by the school not from grants, are in the 10-50K range to buy computers, buy data, go to conferences, etc....generous but not enough to fund a grad student, which including tuition and stipend, will use up the entire budget.

When a Masters student from engineering or quasi-engineering (Information Systems, Technology Management etc) fields sends a cold-call email to a typical business school professor, he is making a pitch to someone who has neither the requirement nor the budget to hire him.

That's maybe 99% of business school professor. The 1% who might have RA/TA positions for you are the rare minority of business school professors who got a grant or got an extra endowment for a research lab or something. They might just have positions that Masters students can fill. They tend to advertise their positions well in advance. But even if cold-calling works for them, it needs to be very specific.

Many international students make the mistake of composing one utterly general boilerplate email and sending it to all professors. See this for instance.


In this case, even if I was a professor with an opportunity for this student, I wouldn't contact him. Because the email is so general. If I want to hire a Masters student, I would like that student to be genuinely interested in what I am doing.

So even if you do send cold-call emails to business school professors, make sure they are individually customized and reflect their particular research interests. 

And of course, make sure you really are interested in the research of the professor you are pitching your services to. We professors do talk to each other, you know? If during a coffee chat, we discover that Masters Student XYZ sent an email to me saying "I am really passionate about Marketing and hope to make a career in it", and also to my Finance colleague saying, "I am really passionate about Finance and hope to make a career in it", it not only gives us something to chuckle about, but also destroys your credibility in our eyes forever.

I'll end by saying that in general, the strike rate for an engineering or quasi-engineering MS student getting RA/TA positions from individual professors in business schools are low. And I hope this post informs incoming Masters students about this and saves them some wasted effort.

          School rallies around family of missing Chinese student   

Twenty days after University of Illinois graduate student Yingying Zhang disappeared from the Urbana-Champaign campus, her family called on the community Thursday to hold on to hope for her safe return.

"She's always a brave girl and she never easily gives up on anything," Zhang's boyfriend, Xiaolin Hou, told a crowd of well-wishers gathered at the school Thursday night.

"She never gives up as long as there's a glimmer of hope ... so we cannot give up either," he said.

Hou and members of Zhang's family led a procession of hundreds of well-wishers through the streets of the Urbana-Champaign campus Thursday night. They waved flags with her name on them and carried her picture as they chanted "let's find Yingying."

The family flew from China to the United States earlier this month to search for the 26-year-old visiting scholar. And they say they're not going home without her.

Zhang's father issued a plea earlier Thursday to those responsible for his daughter's disappearance: Let her go and I'll forgive you.

"The family hopes the kidnappers would not hurt her and know she is really well loved by family and friends," her father told CNN through a translator Thursday. "Let her go, let her come back as soon as possible."

Last seen June 9

Zhang had a yearlong position at the university's department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences. She graduated from Beijing's prestigious Peking University in 2016 with a master's degree in environmental engineering.

Zhang is 5 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs 110 pounds, the FBI said. She was last seen wearing a charcoal-colored baseball cap, a pink and white top, jeans and white tennis shoes. She carried a black backpack.

The last known sighting of Zhang was on the afternoon of June 9. Security camera footage shows her entering the passenger side of a black Saturn Astra hatchback that day.

University police said Zhang had just gotten off a public bus before the four-door hatchback approached her on the north end of the university campus. The FBI announced that investigators found the car on Tuesday, but provided no further details.

The FBI is treating the disappearance as a kidnapping, but campus police, in a recently released update, say they are calling it a missing persons case.

Support from around the world

Zhang is one of more than 300,000 Chinese students and scholars attending US universities. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is one of the most popular universities for Chinese students, with more than 5,600. They make up a sizable community both on campus and in the small town of 207,000.

Her disappearance has triggered widespread concern in China, with groups set up on messaging app WeChat to share information about the case.

A crowdfunding campaign set up to help Zhang's family with expenses as the search continues has raised more than three times its $30,000 goal, with many donors leaving messages of support in Chinese.

'Twenty days is a long time'

Her disappearance has struck a nerve on the Urbana-Champaign campus.

Supporters who joined Thursday's rally echoed her family's hopeful tone.

"I'm praying as I walk," said Champaign resident Donald Baker. "We're hoping we can bring her back home to her family and to this campus."

Another woman said she joined the rally to support Zhang's family. She has a daughter close to Zhang's age who travels internationally, and sometimes she doesn't hear from her for days, she said.

"It was important to me as Americans that we show love and care to this family," she said.

"I want to be optimistic that we will find her," she added. "Twenty days is a long time."

          Fallece Giovanni Liu Shigong, un obispo chino torturado por la dictadura comunista   

El obispo Liu Shingong fue torturado por el régimen comunista chino

La Oficina de Prensa del Vaticano informó del reciente fallecimiento de monseñor Giovanni Liu Shigong, obispo de Jining (Tsining) en China continental.

El prelado, que sufría de una enfermedad, falleció el pasado 9 de junio. Durante su vida y como otros obispos chinos, también fue obligado por las autoridades a estar en campos de trabajos forzosos.

Monseñor Liu Shigong nació el 18 de agosto de 1928 en Wulannao; Siziwangqi, ciudad de Wulanchabu). Ingresó al seminario en 1949. Estudió Filosofía en Hohhot, en un instituto que tiempo después fue cerrado.

Fiel a su vocación, tenía una gran piedad y fue incansable en el servicio a la Iglesia

En 1952 volvió al seminario y fue ordenado sacerdote el 15 de agosto de 1956.

Ejerció su ministerio sacerdotal en la parroquia de Guyingzi en Siziwangqi, hasta que en China se prohibió toda actividad religiosa. Fue obligado entonces a dedicarse a labores agrícolas para asegurar su sustento.

“Durante la Revolución Cultural – señala el comunicado del Vaticano – fue obligado, por un cierto periodo, a estar en campos de trabajo forzoso”.

En 1984, tras la liberalización de la actividad religiosa, asumió como párroco de Duyingzi y trabajó en las cuatro parroquias de Siziwangqi.

Fue consagrado obispo de Jining el 12 de octubre de 1985. La nota del Vaticano resalta que “los fieles y los sacerdotes siempre le tuvieron gran afecto y gratitud por su esfuerzo pastoral y por el estilo de vida ejemplar. Fiel a su vocación, tenía una gran piedad y fue incansable en el servicio a la Iglesia y en fidelidad al Señor, con circunstancias favorables o adversas”.

Los funerales del Obispo se celebraron el 15 de junio y fue sepultado en el cementerio católico de Huaershan. La diócesis de Jining tiene unos 65 mil fieles, 29 sacerdotes, 12 religiosas de la Congregación diocesana del Rosario de María, 25 parroquias y 40 lugares de oración.

Intentos de acercamiento entre China y el Vaticano

Las relaciones diplomáticas entre China y el Vaticano se rompieron en 1951, dos años después de la llegada al poder de los comunistas que expulsaron a los clérigos extranjeros. Desde hace algunos años la Santa Sede trabaja en un acuerdo para el restablecimiento de las relaciones diplomáticas con China, un acercamiento alentado por el Papa Francisco.

En agosto de 2014, mientras se dirigía a Corea del Sur, el Santo Padre envió un telegrama al presidente de China cuando su avión sobrevolaba el espacio aéreo del país para expresarle sus mejores deseos.

El hecho de que el Papa haya recibido permiso para sobrevolar el espacio aéreo chino fue considerado como un pequeño paso adelante. El Papa San Juan Pablo II tuvo que evitar el espacio aéreo de este país durante sus viajes a Asia.

          Top Of The Table – The Godfather: Corleone’s Empire   

Dozens of tabletop games over the years have alluded to the mobster world of The Godfather, and a few have even offered an actual licensed take on the classic film of New York mafia, with its devastating betrayals and family intrigue. But until Corleone’s Empire, I’ve never played a game that so perfectly captures the mood and themes of that memorable movie. Designer Eric M. Lang has been behind some of the most thematically rich and rewarding tabletop games of recent years, and publisher CMON has an eye for stellar production values. Add in some truly evocative art from Karl Kopinski, and The Godfather: Corleone’s Empire nails the setting and tone of Francis Ford Coppola’s masterpiece, while simultaneously offering a rousing and fast-paced game of strategy and sudden, devastating treachery. 

Corleone’s Empire is a game of worker placement and area control. Two to five players each take on the role of a New York crime family, working to shake down businesses across the boroughs, complete jobs like extortions and backroom deals, and bribe allies into cooperation with your nefarious activities. Don Corleone looms over your criminal projects as the Godfather of organized crime in the city, and you must be careful to launder and hide away your money, as the excess will go in tribute to him at the end of each act. Along the way, it’s your acquisition of illegal goods like guns, booze, blood money, and eventually, narcotics, which fuel your illicit affairs. Turf changes hands all the time, new businesses open for exploitation, and minions are murdered in violent car bomb explosions and drive-by shootings; figures regularly move from the board spaces into the Hudson River after they meet an untimely end. The theming is richly imagined and appropriately tied up in crime and sudden dramatic turns of fate that reshape the contours of the session.

CMON has established a reputation for its great miniatures and top-notch art, and both are in full evidence throughout Corleone’s Empire. The rulebook and cards are filled with brooding character art of the city’s mid-20th century criminals and civic officials. Individual uncolored miniatures are detailed and varied, offering up different visuals for each family Don, Consigliere, and Heir. A horse-head token indicates first-turn status. Every player even has a literal metal suitcase that holds laundered money away from prying eyes. And the New York board map is thoughtfully designed and attractive, appropriately appointed without ever feeling crowded, even in the game’s later busy turns. Everything reinforces and recalls the film. I’m also a big fan of the board’s use of shapes tied to the bases of individual minis and components; even newcomers to the game can quickly grasp where each piece should be played, from hexagonal control markers to square spots that match your family’s thug minis.


Corleone's Empire supports two to five players, but plays best with four or five

The clever nods to the movie would be for naught without a solid game framework. Behind the mafioso concept, smartly structured and briskly paced gameplay unfolds. Split into four roughly similar acts, the game layers on complexity through the gradual introduction of new figures, businesses, allies, and resources. Reach Act II, and your Consigliere mini joins the team. Bid more than your opponents, and perhaps you can lure the Mayor to aid your family in Act III. Risk entry into the dangerous world of narcotics in the late game, and you’ve got a new flexible resource that can help fuel any job. 

In the most important phase of each act, players take turns deploying their miniatures onto designated spots across New York City, shaking down businesses like the Barbershop, Korean Laundry, and Gun Dealership, and acquiring the designated resource. Have the most figures in an area, and you gain control of that borough in the subsequent turn, meaning you get a piece of the action every time a player hits up that business in the future. Gathered resources let you complete jobs, which usually offer both concrete rewards and a way to screw over your opponents; you gain money (or launder it) while potentially killing off opponent pieces in key locations across the board. Your own carefully laid plans can be shattered by an opposing player’s machinations. If that sort of messing with each other angers you, Corleone’s Empire is likely to frustrate almost constantly. For me, the sudden changes in fortune communicated a delightful nod to the precipitous and dramatic turns of the movie.  In the end, it’s a combination of acquired money, control exerted around the city, and jobs completed that determine the crime family that will rule New York and win the game.

For a game with so many interlocking systems of resources, control points, and different paths to money and victory, I’m impressed by the ease of play. Down time between turns is very low, as each figure’s placement on the board has a clearly marked consequence and acquisition. In my experience, the game is at its best with four or five players, as interlocking webs of alliances accrue, and players in the lead are suddenly ganged up upon by other players who feel threatened. The abrupt and disastrous falls from a hard-won lead are painful, but bearable since the game completes in a moderate playtime; a two-hour session is enough to finish one game, and for most player groups, that might even be enough to try a second run on the same evening of play, allowing new alliances and grudges to form.  


Each player called a small tin "metal suitcase" to store their money and completed job cards

Strangers to The Godfather may be stymied by the constant references to the movie. But it’s clear that’s a sacrifice that the designer is willing to make, foregoing overt explanations about things like the taking or leaving of canolis, for instance, and instead letting players recognize narrative flavors and moments wherever they can find them. The Godfather: Corleone’s Empire does justice to its inspiration, and the dip into gangster fantasies is a welcome change of pace from more fantastical settings. 

If Corleone’s Empire sounds like a good fit for your friends, you won’t have long to wait to track down a copy; pre-orders are available now, and official launch is July 28th of this year.

Venezuela is home to one the largest reserves of tar sands in the world. I'm trying to figure out how it might be economically feasible for TransCanada to mine tar sands in northeast Alberta, Canada, transport those heavy tar sands via heated, pressurized pipe, 2925 miles across the United States - paying royalties to every land owner along the way and taxes to every state - all the way to Port Arthur, Texas. In Texas the toxic sludge is extracted from the pipeline to be shipped to and loaded on tankers. Tankers that will transport it another ship 2194 miles (as the crow flies) to Caracas, Venezuela, where is is again unloaded and stored as the heavy sludge awaits the expensive process of refining before it is then loaded back on to a tanker for shipment across the globe, to China.

Manufacturers Admit Need for Sales Process

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/06/2006 -- Commence offers industrial companies complete "Freedom Of Choice" to select the solutions and platform that best meets the business requirements of manufacturers and distributors. The comprehensive CRM Industrial application suite is available for use on premise or on-demand as a hosted service. Industrial leaders often build departmental CRM solutions with the award winning Commence Industrial CRM Framework. These choices are why so many industrial companies choose Commence as the solution for managing customer relationships. All Commence Industrial solutions support mobile or wireless connectivity and integration to back-office accounting and ERP systems.

According to Larry Caretsky, President of Commence Corporation (www.commence.com/mfg./) "Countless experts and industrial executives have discussed the reasons for the recent changes in industrial sales – increased price pressure, global competition, and reverse auctions, to name a few. Some blame the Internet and its wealth of information, others blame cheap labor and the associated exodus to China and other countries. Instead of focusing on blame, the smartest industrial distributors and manufacturers view the current climate as a business challenge and focus on how to remedy the problem. And the solution is clear to leading industrial distributors and manufacturers, industrial consultants, and sales trainers: get a sales process."

Industrial distributors and manufacturers are not strangers to processes, reengineering, and systems. Plants and warehouses could not operate profitably without them. Manufacturers would not let accounting and purchasing departments improvise. Caretsky insists, "The more important and complex the task, the more likely that the effective principles and processes for successfully completing that task have been defined and codified. Yet, few have systematized their sales departments. Eighty-eight percent of distributor respondents to The Growth Portfolio Study, conducted by Sales Effectiveness Inc. and the YPS Group, do not have a documented, formal sales process. "

In an effort to help industrial distributors and manufacturers thrive, Commence Corporation presents Practices That Pay: Leveraging Information to Achieve Industrial Selling Results, a compendium of smart practices from the leading industrial sales and marketing experts and organizations that are growing in today's challenging environment.

This product is made from natural millet in Northwest China. To make it different and more human we hand painted it to tell its tales. The paintings on the package tell the story of an old couple. They suffered terrible hunger from the drought and then a legendary bird gave them golden rice to eat. To show appreciation, they gave the golden rice to the world.

Traditions say that when praying, Chinese people tend to write blessings on fortune bags. For this reason, we write stories inside the boxes. We print them on local rice paper, which can be recycled and decomposed, and is more environment-friendly.

The Treasury Department on Thursday declared the Bank of Dandong a “primary money-laundering concern,” proposing to sever it entirely from the U.S. financial system, pending a 60-day review period. Although Trump’s treasury secretary said the move didn’t target China, it comes a week after the president lamented that China’s promise to help with North Korea “has not worked out.” Calls to Bank of Dandong rang unanswered on Friday. Beijing, however, criticized Washington’s action, saying that unilateral sanctions outside the U.N. Security Council were inappropriate. “We also firmly oppose any individual country to exercise long-arm jurisdiction under its own domestic law,” said Lu Kang, spokesman for China’s foreign ministry. Lu added that Beijing will investigate possible wrongdoings by Chinese individuals and entities under Chinese laws. Trump had been leaning on President Xi Jinping to help stop the North’s development of nuclear weapons before they can threaten the U.S. homeland. A main focus of the coordination has been getting China to fully enforce international sanctions intended to starve North Korea of revenue for its nuclear and missile programs. The U.S. action is likely to anger China, which handles about 90 percent of North Korea’s external trade, and whose banks and companies are said to provide Pyongyang access to the U.S.-dominated international financial system. The sanctions bar Americans from doing business with Bank of Dandong, which is based in a northeastern Chinese city on the North Korean border that serves as a gateway for trade with the isolated nation. The U.S. also slapped sanctions Thursday on a Chinese shipping company and two Chinese people that it said have facilitated illegal activities by North Korea. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said the U.S. still wants to work with Beijing on combating the North Korean threat. “We are in no way targeting China with these actions,” Mnuchin told a White House news briefing. The punitive steps were presaged by a tweet from Trump last week reflecting dissatisfaction with Beijing’s efforts. “While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out. At least I know China tried!” Trump tweeted on June 20. The Trump administration may be struggling to maintain international pressure on Pyongyang. The president was to meet for the first time Thursday with South Korea’s new leader, President Moon Jae-in, who has long advocated outreach to North Korea. His predecessor had staunchly backed Trump’s harder line. Mnuchin said the Bank of Dandong has facilitated millions of dollars of transactions for companies involved in North Korea’s weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs. Anthony Ruggiero, a sanctions expert and former Treasury Department official, described it as a small Chinese bank “sitting at the heart” of trade between North Korea and China. “This is a strong message to Chinese leaders that the Trump administration will act against North Korea’s sanctions evasion in China,” he said. The other targeted Chinese entities are: —Dalian Global Unity Shipping Co., which Treasury accused of transporting 700,000 tons of freight annually, including coal and steel products, […]

          The Guardian view on Hong Kong: Britain has a duty to defend its freedoms | Editorial   
As the region marks 20 years since its return to China, there is rightly concern about its future

It is 20 years since Hong Kong returned to China. Now as then, there is trepidation. In his first visit as Chinese leader, Xi Jinping has overseen a military parade – a reminder of Beijing’s might – and warned of “new challenges” to the “one country, two systems” framework which allows a high degree of autonomy for the region. On Friday, the foreign ministry described the Joint Declaration, the Sino-British treaty on those arrangements, as a historical document which no longer had practical significance.

Britain’s seizure of Hong Kong is a key part of China’s narrative of a century of humiliation by imperialist foreign powers, ended by the Communist party’s triumph. (Its belief that the west is determined to rain on its parade will be reinforced by the US announcements of sanctions on a Chinese bank linked to North Korea and arms sales to Taiwan just as Mr Xi arrived in the region for the anniversary celebrations.)

Prisioneros del castrismo: Ernesto Borges y Sosa Fortuny
PEDRO CORZO

Una de las características que distingue a la prisión política del
totalitarismo castrista es que muchos de los que guardan prisión en Cuba
pertenecen a diferentes generaciones y proceden de canteras ideológicas
y políticas que en un momento del pasado fueron enemigas, lo que
garantiza en cierta medida la pluralidad de pensamientos y la diversidad
de opiniones de cómo debe ser restablecida la democracia en el país.

La prisión política del castrismo no tiene un comparable en el pasado o
presente del continente. Sus singularidades son muchas, entre otras, el
número de personas que han estado presas y los años que los condenados
han cumplido. El régimen de trabajo forzado al que son sometidos, sin
obviar la vesania de los carceleros que responden con satisfacción a la
vileza de sus caracteres y a las malvadas instrucciones de sus jefes.

Es fundamental en la consecución del objetivo de una sociedad
democrática, la tolerancia y la disposición a superar las diferencias
entre quienes por sus orígenes y formación tienen ideas e historias
personales contrapuestas, ejemplos de este contexto son Ernesto Borges y
Armando Sosa Fortuny, ambos prisioneros políticos desde hace muchos años.

Armando Sosa Fortuny desafió el totalitarismo. Lo hizo, si bien,
probablemente nunca sea declarado preso de conciencia, aunque le sobra
la dignidad y entereza que le ha faltado a muchos.

Partió de Cuba clandestinamente, pero no para vivir mejor, sino para
prepararse para luchar por la democracia y la libertad de su patria.
Desembarcó en octubre de 1960 con la misión de derrocar la dictadura.
Uno de sus compañeros murió en combate, diez fueron fusilados, entre
ellos tres estadounidenses.

Permaneció 18 años en prisión. En 1994 con 52 años, retornó al combate,
por convicción, no por amor a la violencia. No pensó en la tranquilidad
de un hogar, ni en la seguridad económica, simplemente respondió una vez
más para cumplir con el compromiso contraído con su patria.

Armando, 42 años tras las rejas, es un ejemplo de entereza y compromiso
con sus ideales. Lleva más de la mitad de su vida preso. Esta enfermo
pero no se rinde, un ejemplo de decoro para quienes son siervos de la
dictadura.

Su compañero de presidio desde 1998, quizás no se conozcan, es Ernesto
Borges Álvarez, nació en 1966 en pleno furor revolucionario. Su
formación fue radicalmente opuesta a la de Sosa, quien ya estaba tras
las rejas.

La escritora y periodista Angélica Mora, especialmente sensible con la
causa democrática cubana, ha expresado en varias ocasiones su
preocupación por el estado de salud de Borges, quien lleva 19 años
presos, acusado de contraespionaje.

Borges estudió en un preuniversitario del Ministerio del Interior en
Isla de Pinos donde estaba recluido Sosa Fortuny. Por sus resultados
escolares y vocación personal fue enviado a Moscú para pasar la escuela
superior del KGB que terminó con expediente dorado. A su regreso a Cuba
trabajó en la Dirección General de la Contrainteligencia.

Posteriormente fue trasladado como analista para el Dpto. 1, y designado
primer oficial en el trabajo de enfrentamiento a la Oficina de Intereses
de los Estados Unidos de América, donde elaboró una parte de la política
de esa dependencia en 1998.

Borges Álvarez soportó la tentación totalitaria con entereza admirable.
No se dejó seducir por las prebendas del poder. Rechazó los privilegios
que disfruta la elite política castrista. Supo decir no, porque como
escribiera hace años Kewes S Karol en China: el otro comunismo, vivir en
la URSS formaba a los anticomunistas más convencidos y Borges no fue una
excepción aunque le ofrecieron numerosos platos de lentejas.

Borges Álvarez y Sosa Fortuny son prisioneros del castrismo pero no sus
siervos. Han dedicado una parte importante de su existencia a pelear por
sus convicciones. Ambos arriesgaron la vida y la continúan arriesgando,
a pesar de que no son pocos, parafraseando a José Martí, quienes en las
dos orillas ponen sus habilidades y conocimientos al servicio de la
dinastía castrista.

Periodista de Radio Martí.

La circulación de triciclos de fabricación china estaba comprometida
hasta cerca de su fecha de inicio
Viernes, junio 30, 2017 | Fernando Donate Ochoa

HOLGUÍN, Cuba.– En el lugar hay tensión e incertidumbre. El ajetreo en
el taller de la agencia TaxiCuba de Holguín ha llamado la atención de
los transeúntes. Algunos se detienen y observan a través de la cerca las
nuevas motos triciclos que circularán por las calles de la ciudad cabecera.

Los 20 primeros se pondrían en marcha este 28 de junio, Día del
Trabajador del Transporte. Sin embargo, el anuncio del director de la
agencia en el territorio, Jorge Mastrapa, ampliamente divulgado por los
medios locales, habría podido quedar a medias.

Los desajustes de los equipos recibidos limitarían la salida en fecha de
la cifra prevista, según dijo a CubaNet esta semana un trabajador del
establecimiento que prefiere identificarse como Mario.

Desde que llegaron a principios de mes, "hemos trabajado sin descanso;
aun así, todos no estarán listos en la fecha señalada", había dicho el
empleado. La pésima labor de ensamblaje realizada en la Habana influyó
para el atraso.

Los mecánicos holguineros han dedicado la mayor parte del tiempo a
apretar las tuercas flojas, y en otros casos, a poner las que faltan.
"Inexplicablemente, los habaneros dejaron de hacer algo tan simple como
apretar las tuercas", asegura el experto.

"Parece que no tenían ganas de trabajar, pues de la forma que
ensamblaron estas motos triciclos, yo hago 200 diarias", comenta.

Indica otro defecto como la ausencia del buje debajo del freno que
ocasiona desajuste al pedal. "Las patas no se quedan firmes por la falta
de un buje", lamenta.

Ante los inconvenientes, los especialistas propusieron a la
administración de la agencia devolver los equipos a la Habana, pero los
jefes se negaron y, en cambio, solicitaron a los trabajadores un mayor
sacrificio para cumplir la promesa en fecha.

"Desde una oficina ellos hacen promesas y después nosotros nos
sacrificamos para que se cumplan", lamenta Mario.

El especialista opina que el prototipo que llegó a Holguín no tiene un
diseño adecuado para el transporte de pasajeros. Indica que el tanque de
la gasolina, con capacidad para 30 litros, quedó muy bajo y podría
explotar, cuando la moto triciclo circule, al rozar con el pavimento por
el peso de los seis pasajeros que transportará.

Por otro lado, las platinas soldadas en las grampas traseras que sujetan
la cabina son muy finas. "Debían haber puesto una platina de cuatro
milímetros con un tornillo sujeto con arandelas por arriba y por abajo",
explica el mecánico.

Agrega que el freno y la emergencia deberían estar separados y no unidos
por las mismas planchas, lo que podría ocasionar problemas a la hora de
frenar. "Son defectos del diseño de fábrica en China, y eso aquí no se
puede cambiar", puntualiza.

Los ingenieros del Centro de Revisión Técnica Automotor (CRTA),
encargados de autorizar la circulación, señalarían estas deficiencias
como riesgos.

"El que firme la autorización de circulación de estos equipos tendrá su
responsabilidad si ocurre un accidente", dice Fonseca.

Después de un estudio de movilidad el cual incluía la cantidad de
bicitaxis, el transporte de tracción animal y taxis que están operando,
así como los principales ómnibus citadinos y las necesidades de
transportación, se decidió asignar a Holguín 170 motos triciclos que
irán llegando paulatinamente, publicaron medios locales.

Según informó Mastrapa al canal local Telecristal, las motos triciclos
serán arrendados a cuentapropistas que pagarán diariamente a TaxiCuba
seis dólares y 25 pesos en moneda nacional. Los arrendatarios también
asumirán el costo de la gasolina y los arreglos mecánicos.

Por ahora, las motos triciclos cubrirán la ruta que une los tres
hospitales de la ciudad. El precio del pasaje será de cuatro pesos hasta
cuatro kilómetros, después se cobrará un peso por cada kilómetro extra
que se haya recorrido.

          Hong Kong: A two-stage economic experiment   
Post-war Hong Kong delivered one of the most dramatic improvements in living standards in history, a transformation regarded by Milton Friedman as an experiment in the potential impact of economic freedom on economic growth. This column assesses the contribution of one key official – finance minister Sir John Cowperthwaite – whose laissez-faire approach of ‘positive non-interventionism’, much admired by Friedman, underpinned that success. It also explores, 20 years on from the handover to China, whether a second stage of the Hong Kong economic experiment might be in progress, perhaps leading to faltering freedom and faltering growth.

公安局が公表した映像のキャプチャ。挿入された中国語の文字は「映像を拡散しないでください。情報提供を歓迎します」という意味
 中国の若者たちによる集団暴行事件が後を絶たない昨今、今度はなんと、三角関係のもつれから、16歳の少女らが集団で恋敵に襲いかかり、真っ裸にしてリンチを加えるという事件が起こった。  場所は湖南省常徳市。地元紙「常徳晩報」などによると、6月16日の夜、同市公安局が市のネット通信部門から通報を受けたのだという。  通報の内容は、地元なまりの言葉で話す複数の少女が、一人の少女に対して殴る蹴るの暴行を加えている映像がネット上にアップされており、社会的な悪影響を与えているというものだった。

三角関係のもつれから……16歳少女ら7人が恋敵をリンチ→真っ裸にして動画をネット公開の画像3
モザイクがかかっているが、暴行を受けた少女は丸裸にされているようだ
 連絡を受けた公安局は、すぐさま捜査を開始。まずはその映像が拡散されないよう、アップロード先のサーバをシャットダウンした。その後、夜通しの捜査により、事件の発生場所と加害者のその後の行動や、被害者を特定。加害者の身柄を拘束した。  取り調べによると、主犯格の16歳少女は無職で、被害者と一人の男性をめぐって三角関係になったことから、仲間6人を集めて地下通路で暴行を加え、スマホで映像を撮影したのだという。  ここ数年、若者たちがリンチの模様を動画に撮ってネットに流すという事件が中国では頻繁に起こっているが、多くのケースでは、その映像が決め手となって、人物や場所が特定されてしまっている。それでもなお同じことが繰り返されてしまうのは、意識の低さからなのだろうか?

          Handelspartner laufen Sturm gegen China   
Peking. Alle großen Handelspartner Chinas haben gegen neue Hürden der Volksrepublik für Importe von Nahrungsmitteln protestiert. Nach Informationen der dpa in Peking vom Freitag warnen die EU, die USA, Japan, Australien und andere Staaten in einem Brief an die chinesische Regierung vor "bedeutenden Störungen im Handel und Verzerrungen", sollten die Vorschriften wie geplant zum 1. Oktober in Kraft treten. Die Anforderungen stünden in keinem Verhältnis zu den Risiken, die von diesen Produkten ausgingen.China hat die Welthandelsorganisation (WTO) von den Plänen bereits unterrichtet, so dass jetzt eine 60-tägige Beratungsfrist läuft. Die neuen Barrieren sind international unüblich und werden von den Handelspartnern als protektionistisch und diskriminierend empfunden. Jede Nudel, jeder Keks und jedes Bonbon muss demnach künftig ein eigenes amtliches Unbedenklichkeitszertifikat für China vorweisen. Kontrolle statt Freihandel Die Forderungen seien praktisch nicht zu erfüllen, meinen Experten. Denn die Behörden in Deutschland oder anderen Ländern müssten bescheinigen, dass die Waren "die Anforderungen chinesischer Gesetze und gesetzlicher Vorschriften sowie Standards erfüllen", wie Chinas Qualitätsaufsicht (AQSIQ) fordert. Solche Einrichtungen gibt es in den Herkunftsländern nicht, sie müssten eigens geschaffen werden.Die Kontrolle gilt als Beispiel für den Widerspruch, dass China einerseits seine eigenen Markthürden erhöht, während sich Staats- und Parteichef Xi Jinping andererseits international als Vorreiter für Freihandel präsentiert. Handelsfragen und Protektionismus sind auch Themen bei Xis Besuch in Berlin und beim Gipfel der führenden Wirtschaftsmächte (G20) anschließend in Hamburg.Die Handelspartner vermuten, dass es bei den international unüblichen Regeln weniger um die Abwehr von Gefahren für chinesische Verbraucher geht als vielmehr um den Schutz eigener Hersteller.

          Deutschland fordert Strafe wegen Giftgas   
Berlin/Den Haag. Die Bundesregierung hat den UN-Sicherheitsrat aufgefordert, die Verantwortlichen für den nun bestätigten Giftgas-Angriff im syrischen Chan Scheichun zur Rechenschaft zu ziehen. Es sei jetzt wichtig, die Schuldigen für diesen Angriff mit dem Nervenkampfstoff Sarin schnell zu identifizieren und zur Verantwortung zu ziehen, sagte der Sprecher des Auswärtigen Amtes, Martin Schäfer, am Freitag.Die Bundesregierung erwarte auch von Russland und China die Bereitschaft, Sorge dafür zu tragen, dass die Verantwortlichen - wenn diese eines Tages zweifelsfrei feststehen sollten - "auf eine angemessene Art und Weise" zur Rechenschaft gezogen würden. Alle Indizien deuten laut Schäfer darauf hin, dass das syrische Regime von Präsident Baschar al-Assad die Verantwortung für den Einsatz trägt. Sollte sich dies am Ende der Ermittlungen bewahrheiten, wäre dies "ein eklatanter Verstoß gegen das Chemiewaffen-Abkommen", sagte der Sprecher. Der Sicherheitsrat habe die Möglichkeit, "wenn eine Gefahr für Frieden und Sicherheit festgestellt ist", Sanktionen gegen Einzelpersonen zu ergreifen, aber auch gegen ein "politisches Regime".Das Investigativ-Team der Organisation für ein Verbot der Chemiewaffen (OPCW) hatte zuvor den Einsatz des verbotenen Giftgases Sarin in der syrischen Ortschaft bestätigt.Das habe die Untersuchung von internationalen Experten ergeben, teilte die Organisation am Freitag in Den Haag mit. Beim Angriff am 4. April waren etwa 90 Menschen getötet und Hunderte verletzt worden. Das OPCW-Team werde nun mit der Ermittlung der Schuldigen beginnen.

Student Data Deletion Day - Wouldn't That Be Great

From Education Week:

Bradley Shear is a lawyer who focuses on digital privacy and social media. 
He's also the father of two elementary-aged children who attend the public schools in Maryland's Montgomery County. 

A little over a year ago, Shear says, the focus of his professional life became an intensely personal concern, as well.

"I got a phone call from my son's teacher, who said he had performed an internet search for inappropriate content on a school-issued Chromebook," Shear said in an interview. "It got me thinking about all the data being collected about kids, and whether it will ever be deleted.
From Shear's blog, Shear on Social Media Law:

Every time our kids may be admonished for talking out of turn or texting in class they may receive a permanent demerit in Class Dojo.  In the near future, classrooms may be filled with cameras and other tracking technologies that also analyze our kids every interaction with their teachers and class mates. This is not some type of crazy prediction; in China, this Orwellian future is already a reality.

Multiple companies in the educational technology space have intentionally misled students, parents, teachers, administrators, and lawmakers about how they are using the personal data they are collecting about our kids in school. For example, Google was caught intentionally scanning student emails for advertising and other troubling purposes despite prior promises it was not.  ConnectEDU tried to sell personal student data for profit when it went bankrupt despite promising not to do so.* Edmodo, another educational technology company, was recently caught surreptitiously tracking students online to monetize their web surfing habits despite promises to the contrary.

Legislature to Pass Budget Today

 I was actually going to give you all kinds of links and updates but here's all you really need to know - the Dems caved, schools will not be fully-funded and property-rich areas will pay for most of the increases. 


Schools will get $7.3B more over the next four years.  This is not enough and is likely to not pass judicial muster for fully funding schools.  After this budget is passed, the Supreme Court will review the part that addresses McCleary and allow the plaintiffs to give their thoughts.  Any ruling on this issue would probably come at the end of the summer.

During the Milan Fashion Week in September,  the brand of the Tod's group will open a new boutique at number 5 of the  street, in the space previously occupied by Bottega Veneta , which will be the forerunner for future branded retail. 

"The new store in Montenapoleone will feature a completely new concept which will start all other future store",  explained to Pambianconews  Sergio  Azzolari , the general brand manager of Fay and Hogan, both of the Tod's group. "Right now we already have Hogan shop in the street, at number 23, which we expect to close when the new one opens". 

As for 2017, after a 2016 down 3.2% to 214.2 million euro, Hogan aims to return to growth. "This will be a year of restart and rationalization," explained Azzolari. "We are looking for our consistency and we want to lay the groundwork for an aggressive five-year plan. In particular, we will focus on China, where we are using two local ambassadors, two actors, who are developing a shoe model each to be placed on the market, so as to make us better know also there. " China is one of the markets in which the brand hopes to develop further in 2017, together with France, Germany and Spain (foreign fact accounts for about 60% of the total turnover of the group) and Italy.

          4 Hidden Dangers of Pork   
Pork is the most commonly consumed meat in the world, but may also be one of the most dangerous.

Among foods that inspire a cult-like following, pork often leads the pack, as evidenced by the 65% of Americans eager to name bacon the country’s national food.

Unfortunately, that popularity comes at a cost. Along with being the most commonly consumed meat in the world, pork may also be one of the most dangerous, carrying some important and under-discussed risks that any consumer should be aware of (1).

1. Hepatitis E

Thanks to the revival of nose-to-tail eating, offal has redeemed itself among health enthusiasts, especially liver, which is prized for its vitamin A content and massive mineral lineup.

But when it comes to pork, liver might be risky business.

In developed nations, pork liver is the top food-based transmitter of hepatitis E, a virus that infects 20 million people each year and can lead to acute illness (fever, fatigue, jaundice, vomiting, joint pain and stomach pain), enlarged liver and sometimes liver failure and death (23).

Most hepatitis E cases are stealthily symptom-free, but pregnant women can experience violent reactions to the virus, including fulminant hepatitis (rapid-onset liver failure) and a high risk of both maternal and fetal mortality (4). In fact, mothers who get infected during their third trimester face a death rate of up to 25% (5).

In rare cases, hepatitis E infection can lead to myocarditis (an inflammatory heart disease), acute pancreatitis (painful inflammation of the pancreas), neurological problems (including Guillain-Barré syndrome and neuralgic amyotrophy), blood disorders and musculoskeletal problems, such as elevated creatine phosphokinase, indicating muscle damage, and multi-joint pain (in the form of polyarthralgia) (678).

People with compromised immune systems, including organ transplant recipients on immunosuppressive therapy and people with HIV, are more likely to suffer from these severe hepatitis E complications (9).

So, just how alarming are pork’s contamination stats? In America, about 1 out of every 10 store-bought pig livers tests positive for hepatitis E, which is slightly higher than the 1 in 15 rate in the Netherlands and 1 in 20 rate in the Czech Republic (1011). One study in Germany found that about 1 in 5 pork sausages were contaminated (12).

France’s traditional figatellu, a pig liver sausage that’s often consumed raw, is a confirmed hepatitis E carrier (13). In fact, in regions of France where raw or rare pork is a common delicacy, over half the local population shows evidence of hepatitis E infection (14).

Japan, too, is facing rising hepatitis E concerns as pork gains popularity (15). And in the UK? Hepatitis E shows up in pork sausages, in pork liver and at pork slaughterhouses, indicating the potential for widespread exposure among pork consumers (16).

It might be tempting to blame the hepatitis E epidemic on commercial farming practices, but in the case of the pig, wilder doesn’t mean safer. Hunted boars, too, are frequent hepatitis E carriers, capable of passing on the virus to game-eating humans (1718).

Apart from total pork abstinence, the best way to slash hepatitis E risk is in the kitchen. This stubborn virus can survive the temperatures of rare-cooked meat, making high heat the best weapon against infection (19). For virus deactivation, cooking pork products for at least 20 minutes to an internal temperature of 71°C (160°F) seems to do the trick (20).

However, fat can protect hepatitis viruses from heat destruction, so fattier cuts of pork might need extra time or toastier temperatures (21).

Summary: Pork products, particularly liver, frequently carry hepatitis E, which can cause severe complications and even death in vulnerable populations. Thorough cooking is necessary to deactivate the virus.

2. Multiple Sclerosis

One of the most surprising risks associated with pork — one that’s received remarkably little airtime — is multiple sclerosis (MS), a devastating autoimmune condition involving the central nervous system.

The robust link between pork and MS has been known at least since the 1980s, when researchers analyzed the relationship between per capita pork consumption and MS across dozens of countries (22).

While pork-averse nations like Israel and India were nearly spared from MS’s degenerative grips, more liberal consumers, such as West Germany and Denmark, faced sky-high rates.

In fact, when all countries were considered, pork intake and MS showed a whopping correlation of 0.87 (p<0.001), which is much higher and more significant than the relationship between MS and fat intake (0.63, p<0.01), MS and total meat intake (0.61, p<0.01) and MS and beef consumption (no significant relationship).

For perspective, a similar study of diabetes and per capita sugar intake found a correlation of just under 0.60 (p<0.001) when analyzing 165 countries (23).

As with all epidemiological findings, the correlation between pork consumption and MS can’t prove that one causes the other (or even that, within MS-stricken countries, the most enthusiastic pork consumers were the most diseased). But as it turns out, the evidence vault goes much deeper.

Earlier, a study of inhabitants of the Orkney and Shetland Islands of Scotland, a region teeming with unusual delicacies, including seabird eggs, raw milk and undercooked meat, found only one dietary association with MS — consumption of “potted head,” a dish made from boiled pig’s brain (24).

Among Shetland residents, a significantly higher proportion of MS patients had consumed potted head in their youth, compared to healthy, age and sex-matched controls (25).

This is particularly relevant because — per other research — MS that strikes in adulthood might stem from environmental exposures during adolescence (26).

The potential for pig brain to trigger nerve-related autoimmunity isn’t just an observational hunch, either. Between 2007 and 2009, a cluster of 24 pork plant workers mysteriously fell ill with progressive inflammatory neuropathy, which is characterized by MS-like symptoms such as fatigue, numbness, tingling and pain (2728).

The source of the outbreak? So-called “pig brain mist” — tiny particles of brain tissue blasted into the air during carcass processing (29).

When workers inhaled these tissue particles, their immune systems, per standard protocol, formed antibodies against the foreign porcine antigens.

But those antigens happened to bear an uncanny resemblance to certain neural proteins in humans. And the result was a biological calamity: confused about who to fight, the workers’ immune systems launched a guns-blazing attack on their own nerve tissue (3031).

Although the resulting autoimmunity wasn’t identical to multiple sclerosis, that same process of molecular mimicry, where foreign antigens and self-antigens are similar enough to trigger an autoimmune response, has been implicated in the pathogenesis of MS (3233).

Of course, unlike pig brain mist, hot dogs and ham aren’t literally inhaled (teenage boys notwithstanding). Could pork still transmit problematic substances through ingestion?

The answer is a speculative yes. For one, certain bacteria, particularly Acinetobacter, are involved in molecular mimicry with myelin, the nerve-sheathing substance that becomes damaged in MS (3435).

Although the role of pigs as Acinetobacter carriers hasn’t been exhaustively studied, the bacteria has been found in pig feces, on pig farms and in bacon, pork salami and ham, where it serves as a spoilage organism (36373839). If pork acts as a vehicle for Acinetobacter transmission (or in any way increases the risk of human infection), a link with MS would make sense.

Two, pigs may be silent and under-studied carriers of prions, misfolded proteins that drive neurodegenerative disorders like Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (the human version of mad cow) and Kuru (found among cannibal societies) (40).

Some researchers suggest MS itself could be a prion disease, one that targets oligodendrocytes, the cells that produce myelin (41). And since prions — and their associated diseases— are transmitted by consuming infected nerve tissue, it’s possible that prion-harboring pork products could be one link in the MS chain (42).

Summary: A causative role of pork in MS is far from a closed case, but the unusually strong epidemiological patterns, biological plausibility and documented experiences make further research imperative.

3. Liver Cancer and Cirrhosis

Liver problems tend to trail closely on the heels of some predictable risk factors, namely hepatitis B and C infection, exposure to aflatoxin (a carcinogen produced by mold) and excessive alcohol intake (434445).

But buried in the scientific literature is another potential scourge of liver health — pork.

For decades, pork consumption has faithfully echoed liver cancer and cirrhosis rates around the world. In multi-country analyses, the correlation between pork and cirrhosis mortality clocked in at 0.40 (p<0.05) using 1965 data, 0.89 (p<0.01) using mid-1970s data, 0.68 (p=0.003) using 1996 data and 0.83 (p=0.000) using 2003 data (4647).

In those same analyses, among the 10 Canadian provinces, pork bore a correlation of 0.60 (p<0.01) with death from liver cirrhosis, while alcohol, perhaps due to an overall low intake, showed no significant link.

And in statistical models incorporating known perils for the liver (alcohol consumption, hepatitis B infection and hepatitis C infection), pork remained independently associated with liver disease, suggesting the association isn’t just due to pork piggybacking, as the case may be, on a different causative agent (48).

Beef, by contrast, remained liver-neutral or protective in these studies.

Liver cancer, too, tends to follow in the hoof steps of the pig. A 1985 analysis showed that pork intake correlated with hepatocellular carcinoma deaths as strongly as alcohol did (0.40, p<0.05 for both) (49). (Considering liver cirrhosis is often a prelude to cancer, this connection shouldn’t be surprising (50).)

So, what’s behind these eerie associations?

At first glance, the most likely explanations don’t pan out. Although pork-transmitted hepatitis E can lead to liver cirrhosis, this happens almost exclusively in immunosuppressed people, a subset of the population that’s too small to account for the global correlation (51).

Relative to other meat, pork tends to be high in omega-6 fatty acids, including linoleic acid and arachidonic acid, which may play a role in liver disease (525354). But vegetable oils, whose polyunsaturated fatty acid content blows pork out of the water, don’t dance the same liver disease tango that pork does, calling into question whether fat is really to blame (5556).

Heterocyclic amines, a class of carcinogens formed by cooking meat (including pork) at high temperatures, contribute to liver cancer in a variety of animals (57). But these compounds are also readily formed in beef, according to the same studies that indicated pork has no positive relationship with liver disease (5859).

With all that in mind, it’d be easy to dismiss the pork-liver disease link as an epidemiological fluke. However, some plausible mechanisms do exist.

The most likely contender involves nitrosamines, which are carcinogenic compounds created when nitrites and nitrates react with certain amines (from protein), particularly in high heat (60). These compounds have been linked to damage and cancer in a variety of organs, including the liver (61).

One of the biggest dietary sources of nitrosamines is processed pork, which, along with being a frequent visitor to the frying pan, typically contains nitrites and nitrates as curing agents. (Vegetables are also rich in naturally occurring nitrates, but their antioxidant content and dearth of protein help thwart the process of N-nitrosation, preventing them from becoming cancer-causing agents (62).)

Significant levels of nitrosamines have been found in pork liver pâté, bacon, sausage, ham and other cured meats (636465). The fatty portion of pork products, in particular, tends to accumulate much higher levels of nitrosamines than the lean bits, making bacon a particularly abundant source (66).

The presence of fat can also turn vitamin C into a nitrosamine promoter instead of a nitrosamine inhibitor, so pairing pork with veggies might not confer much protection (67).

Although much of the nitrosamine-liver cancer research has focused on rodents, where certain nitrosamines produce liver injury with remarkable ease, the effect appears in humans as well (6869). In fact, some researchers suggest humans may be even more sensitive to nitrosamines than mice and rats (70).

In Thailand, for instance, nitrosamines have been strongly linked to liver cancer in areas where other risk factors are low (71). A 2010 analysis of the NIH-AARP cohort found red meat (including pork), processed meat (including processed pork), nitrates and nitrites to be positively associated with chronic liver disease. Rubber workers, occupationally exposed to nitrosamines, have faced extremely high rates of non-alcohol-related liver disease and cancer (72).

Do nitrosamines prove a chain of causation between pork, liver-harming compounds and liver disease? The evidence is currently too patchy to make that claim, but the risk is plausible enough to justify limiting nitrosamine-containing (or nitrosamine-producing) pork products, including bacon, ham, hot dogs and sausages made with sodium nitrite or potassium nitrate.

Summary: Strong epidemiological links exist between pork consumption and liver disease. If these links reflect cause and effect, one culprit might be N-nitroso compounds, which are found abundantly in processed pork products cooked at high temperatures.

4. Yersinia

For years, pork’s precautionary motto was “well-done or bust,” a consequence of fears about trichinosis, a type of roundworm infection that ravaged pork consumers throughout much of the 20th century (73).

Thanks to changes in feeding practices, farm hygiene and quality control, pig-borne trichinosis has dropped off the radar, inviting pink pork back onto the menu.

But pork’s relaxed heat rules may have opened the doors for a different type of infection — yersiniosis, which is caused by Yersinia bacteria. In the US alone, Yersiniacauses 35 deaths and almost 117,000 cases of food poisoning each year (74). Its chief entry route for humans? Undercooked pork.

Yersiniosis’s acute symptoms are rough enough — fever, pain, bloody diarrhea — but its long-term consequences are what should really ring alarm bells. Victims of Yersiniapoisoning face a 47-times higher risk of reactive arthritis, a type of inflammatory joint disease triggered by infection (75).

Even children become post-Yersinia arthritis targets, sometimes requiring chemical synovectomy (the injection of osmic acid into a troubled joint) to relieve persistent pain (7677).

And in the less-common instances where Yersinia doesn’t bring the typical feverish, diarrheic unpleasantries? Reactive arthritis can develop even when the original infection was asymptomatic, leaving some victims unaware that their arthritis is a consequence of food-borne illness (78).

Although reactive arthritis usually subsides on its own over time, Yersinia victims remain at higher risk of chronic joint problems, including ankylosing spondylitis, sacroiliitis, tenosynovitis and rheumatoid arthritis, for years on end (798081).

Some evidence suggests that Yersinia can lead to neurological complications (82). Infected individuals with iron overload may be at higher risk of multiple liver abscesses, potentially leading to death (838485). And among people who are genetically susceptible, anterior uveitis, inflammation of the eye’s iris, is also more likely following a bout of Yersinia (8687).

Lastly, via molecular mimicry, Yersinia infection could also raise the risk of Graves’ disease, an autoimmune condition characterized by excessive thyroid hormone production (8889).

The solution? Bring on the heat. The majority of pork products (69% of tested samples, according to a Consumer Reports analysis) are contaminated with Yersiniabacteria, and the only way to safeguard against infection is through proper cooking. An internal temperature of at least 145°F for whole pork and 160°F for ground pork is necessary to decimate any lingering pathogen.

Summary: Undercooked pork can transmit Yersinia bacteria, causing short-term illness and raising the risk of reactive arthritis, chronic joint conditions, Graves’ disease and other complications.

In Conclusion

So, should health-savvy omnivores scrap pork from the menu?

The jury’s still out. For two of pork’s problems — hepatitis E and Yersinia — aggressive cooking and safe handling are enough to minimize the risk. And due to a shortage of controlled, pork-centric research capable of establishing causation, pork’s other red flags spring from epidemiology — a field rife with confounders and unjustified confidence.

Worse, many diet-and-disease studies lump pork together with other types of red meat, diluting whatever associations might exist with pork alone.

These issues make it hard to isolate the health effects of pig-derived products and determine the safety of their consumption.

That being said, caution is probably warranted. The sheer magnitude, consistency and mechanistic plausibility of pork’s connection with several serious diseases make the chances of a true risk more likely.

Until further research is available, you might want to think twice about going hog-wild on pork.

Washington's move to shut off Bank of Dandong from the U.S. financial system punishes a small regional Chinese lender with what U.S. authorities say has been an outsized exposure to North Korea and its banned nuclear and missile programmes. The U.S. Treasury on Thursday accused the bank of facilitating millions of dollars in transactions for companies tied to North Korea's weapons development, as Washington ratchets up pressure on Beijing to rein-in its isolated neighbour and ally. "Bank of Dandong will in effect be shunned by the U.S. banks that may in the past have been used to clear its transactions," said William Newcomb, a former member of the United Nations Panel of Experts on North Korea. "Most international banks will also cease dealing with Bank of Dandong because of reputational risk." "Similarly, other Chinese banks could damage their own ability to clear transactions should they try to act on Bank of Dandong's behalf and be found out," he said, calling the move "an

          Apple secrets: Most leaks come out of the mothership   

LOS ANGELES - Apple is known for its secrecy, but journalists and bloggers have nonetheless reported about many of the company's recent products beforehand.

A new report now suggests that most of these leaks come directly from Apple employees, as opposed to contract manufacturers.

The Outline got its hands on a recording of an internal briefing on Apple's fight against leaks. The company is running an internal global security team to fight leaks, and hunt down leakers.

The team is being led by former members of US spy agencies, and reportedly spent three years on investigating, and eventually unmasking, one leaker.

These kinds of internal investigations aren't unheard of in tech. Most of the big tech companies employ internal security teams for this very purpose, and often use a number of tricks to unmask leakers.

However, Apple is unique in that it manufactures large numbers of devices in secrecy in order to be able to sell the next iPhone just days after it is being announced.

In the past, this often led to leaks coming out of the massive factories in China that make Apple's products.

But Apple and its contract manufacturers have reportedly been able to crack down on leaks at manufacturers in recent years.

In 2013, employees at factories assembling the iPhone stole some 19,000 enclosures before the device was even announced, and then sold them on the black market.

In 2014, that number was down to 387. By 2016, Apple only had 4 stolen enclosures.

These enclosures are particularly sensitive for Apple, since they reveal the screen size, ports and other key elements of a device.

However, while leaks overseas have been stopped, there is still plenty of leaking going on at Apple itself.

That why the company is encouraging employees not to talk to anyone, not even their families, about their work. That approach seems to have its limits, as the leaked recording about leaking shows.

  • “I had a really nice time.”
  • “Had a great time tonight. (I) Would like to see you again.”

Today we have our dating consultant, Jessica Coyle, back on the show!

Today Jessica is back to talk about the concept of chemistry in dating in urban US culture.

Jessica is going to tell us how to know if we actually have chemistry with someone.

Chemistry: A magnetic pull between two people where you seem to understand the other person and something is different about that person to you.

 Two different types of chemistry:

  • Slow burn chemistry: You start out as friends and then chemistry and attraction gradually builds over time. Features of the other person that seemed strange or unattractive initially start to become endearing and attractive.
  • Quick chemistry/limerance: This is more of an infatuation. Jessica thinks that online dating and set ups reward this type of attraction. These connections can be really intense at first and then can fizzle out and not end well. At the same time, sometimes these attractions can work in the long run.

 

What about in your culture?

What are your deal breakers when it comes to dating?

In your culture, how much influence do your parents and family have when it comes to your choice of a partner?

 

Here are some dating vocabulary words that we talked about today:

  • Limerance
  • Lukewarm feelings
  • Slow burn chemistry
  • Quirks (personality and physical)
  • Deal breakers
  • Red Flag

          AEE 280: Spark the Conversation! 4 Topics to Use on a First Date in English   

Are you dating in English?

Today, we welcome back dating expert Jessica Coyle to give you four easy topics for conversation when dating!

 

Conversation can be tricky on a first date.  You might be nervous, and it can be hard to know what’s safe to talk about.  Jessica has a great acronym to help you with simple, safe discussion topics.  It’s FORD, and it stands for:

  • Friends: If you have mutual friends, ask how your date met them.  Or, if you don’t have mutual friends, ask if your date knows anybody in the area where you’re meeting.
  • Occupation: Asking about another person’s job is usually a good conversation starter.  You might say, “What do you do with your time?”  That way, if your date happens to be unemployed, they are still able to give an answer.
  • Recreation: Ask about what somebody likes to do for fun. You might follow up by asking, “How often do you get to do that?”
  • Dreams: This is good for asking hypothetical questions. You could ask things like “Where do you see yourself in ten years?” or “What would you do if you had a billion dollars?”

 

People love talking about themselves, so being interested in others is what might make you more interesting to them.  When starting a conversation, don’t just ask a list disconnected questions.  Follow-up with the other person’s answers to show that you are listening to what they are saying.

          Il seguente e' la mia ennesima lettera d'amore a Boo. Vi conviene saltare a pie' pari . Niente da vedere, circolare, circolare.   
Questa cosa fara' molto 2006, ma ieri abbiamo visto Boo e tutto e' perfetto nel mondo.

Performava come ospite al cabaret al Landor di questo suo amico (mai sentito prima) con cui era in Out of this world a Chichester (o qualcosa del genere, non stavo prestando particolare attenzione, visto che il tizio non e' nemmeno un granche'..)

La prima cosa che mi ha detto che e' stata quanto mi stavano bene i capelli. Cosi', di sua sponte. Dopodiche' non ci ho capito piu' niente.

Ad un certo punto io e Kieran (il suo bf) ci stavamo piegando in due a dirci quanto eravamo impediti senza Google Maps (perche' la casa a East Finchley l'hanno venduta e a quanto pare stanno comprando casa in un posto al nord [dove, mi dice la regia, vive anche Kerry Ellis] e io ho fatto un faccia come a dire ENDOCAZZOSTA' e Kieran si e' spanciato =_=) e quanto ci hanno messo a venire giu' da North London per via dei lavori sulle strade, con conseguente disgressione sui prezzi delle case e che con lo stesso prezzo del flat che avevano prima adesso si prendono un'intera casa, e come dovremmo andarecene anche noi fuori Londra per avere prezzi piu' affordabili...(povero fesso, se sapesse a quanto ammontano le nostre finanze..a quel prezzo ci prendiamo il potting shed per il giardino. Poi non avremmo un giardino dove metterlo, ma vabbe'..so' dettagli..)

Clare era tutta dolorante e mezza raffreddata e nel mezzo delle prove di C4U (LOL) e quando le abbiamo detto ci vediamo alla prima preview ha cominciato a fare NO NO NO VI PREGO NON VENITE ALLA PRIMA DATEMI UN PO' DI GIORNI NO NO NO e noi eravamo tipo..ehrm..too late, abbiamo gia' prenotato, oops..e lei ha fatto un facepalm epico.
Giuro.
Al che noi abbiamo cercato di buttarla sul ridere, ma dai, su, siamo solo noi, perche' mai dovresti essere cosi' preoccupata?? e lei, senza nemmeno pensarci su, senza perdere una battuta, ha detto: "perche' voi siete oneste con me".
E io sono morta un po' dentro.

Ma soprattutto..quando mai? Abbiamo visto le peggio merde solo per vederla performare..
Forse e' solo perche' le facciamo uno smembramento certosino di ogni sua performance ogni volta, invece del solito 'brava' che ti dice la gente che non ha mai visto uno show in vita sua..

Abbiamo anche fatto, come al nostro solito, la Danza degli Arrivederci, che consiste nel dirsi ciao per mezz'ora e poi trovare sempre qualcosa da dire, il che porta ad un altro giro di abbracci e baci e arrivederci, per poi ricordarsi una cosa all'ultimo secondo, e cosi' via, ad lib.

Ad un certo punto mentre era sul punto di andare fa MA OMG IO NON VI VEDO DA OLEANNA, COSA CAZZO AVEVO DA FARE CHE NON VI HO BECCATE e si e' scervellata per 5 minuti sulla dinamica del nostro mancato incontro mentre noi le dicevamo ma guarda che e' ok, eh..non fa niente..e lei ad insistere che c'era qualcosa di wrong quel giorno, era successo qualcosa, era andata dal dottore in macchina. Vabbe' tesoro, it's ok..

Cmq, boh, ci siamo abbracciate a morte e lei e' sempre uno scricciolino che mi sparisce tra le braccia e non abbiamo piu' quella psicosi da fangirls ululanti ma riusciamo addirittura a fare discorsi da adulti e parlare come esseri umani e tra una settimana e' tipo i suo compleanno e siamo trentunenni tutte e due e omg siamo cosi' cresciute.

Chi l'avrebbe mai detto, 5 anni fa, che saremmo arrivate a questo punto?
          2011, siamo nemmeno a Pasqua e sto gia' stressata.   
Questo backlog e' ormai diventato uno scherzo.
Fisso il monitor leggermente perplimuta.
Immaginatemi come Carrie Bradshow, di fronte al suo laptop aperto su una pagina di word processor, che si fa il voice over da sola, scatole da scarpe sparse per le stanza e un bicchiere di Pinot Grigio vicino alla tastiera.
Non sarebbe la verita', ma vabbe', questo passa il convento, accontentatevi.

THE 39 STEPS (07.01.11)
Cominciamo l'anno nuovo con la scoppiettante visita della Valex, e ci fiondiamo subito, con ancora la valigia dietro, a vedere Dianne per un'ultima volta prima del cast change.
Madonna le risate idiote che ci facciamo co' sto show. A non finire.
La aspettiamo per farle un saluto e OMG. Oh. Em. Gi. Quanto era che non parlavamo con Dianne senza un fottio di infoiate urlanti intorno? MILIONI DI ANNI. Mi ero scordata com'e' ciccia. Siamo tutti un po' in lutto perche' Marky non e' riuscito a vederla prima della sua ultima, e noi shippiamo sempre un po' soprattutto quando lei ne parla come se il fatto che non si siano incrociati fosse la delusione piu' grande della sua vita adulta. Bless her. Ci vuole un pochino bene, dai. Finiamo a parlare del marito, del tour che sta facendo con la sua band, di come lei ora e' senza lavoro e finira' a fare la groupie, e si palesa il fatto che Dianne non conosce la differenza tra l'Italia e la Svizzera. Vabbe', non si puo' volere tutto.

LEGALLY BLONDE, MAT AND EVE (08.01.11)
Ma veniamo al vero motivo per la venuta di donna Valex: SHERIDAN SE NE VA. TRAGGGGGEDIA.
No seriously. TRAGGGEDIA.
Alla matinee ci siamo spanciati, al solito. Ne hanno fatte di tutti i colori. Sheridan non ha smesso un attimo di piangere. Persino Bambacione Duncan si e' presentato a sorpresa mimetizzandosi col cast, e anche il tizio che dopo di lui ha fatto Warner, quell'altro fessacchiotto allampanato, mi sfugge il nome..tutti sul palco a farle prendere i colpi. Mettiamoci anche un bacio a sorpresa tra Elle e Enid, tanto per capire che tipo di show hanno fatto sti scemi.
Alla sera ha retto meglio, ma verso la fine era il devasto mio dio, tutti in lacrime, madoh.
Poi aspettiamo, aspettiamo, aspettiamo. E finalmente quando esce e viene aggredita dalle solite teste di cazzo che devono per forza romperle le palle per farsi la foto (MA DICO IO PROPRIO ADESSO) siamo riuscite a farci notare, ed e' stato un attimo, un OMG IT'S YOU di sollievo nel vedere una faccia nota, un abbraccio veloce nel marasma di SHERIDAN ONE MORE PICTURE SHERIDAN SHERIDAN ONE MORE, un 'you guys were brilliant' sussurrato nell'orecchio mentre mi si appende al collo. Ma non io a lei, e' LEI che l'ha detto a noi. E' matta. Completamente. Dovreste sentire lo squeal che ha fatto quando ha visto che Valex le aveva portato i biscotti delle Dolomiti. Si e' cappottata. Matta vi dico.
La fine di un'era. Tristenji.

Donna Valex riparte alla volta di casa, e anche io mi concedo una breve pausa Italiana, a suon di piatti cucinati da mamma e giri intorno alla citta' trascinata da mia cugina che come sente la parola SALDI si butta giu' dalle scale per la fretta di arrivare al primo negozio.

Ritorno in tempo per vedere l'ultima impresa di Paoletto lo Speziale al Garrick:

LANCE HORNE: FIRST THINGS LAST (30.01.11)
Solito giovane compositore che ci delizia con le sue canzonette, gia' performate con Paoletto e Julie al Lincoln Centre di NYC. Un paio carine, un paio da ribaltarsi, un paio da dimenticare. Non terribile, di certo meglio di Scott Alan che veramente guarda, nemmeno regalato. In confronto Lance e' un genio.
Andiamo fondamentalmente perche' Paoletto ha portato come al solito la sua intera rubrica telefonica: Julie, la Wad, CJ, Alan Cumming, Graham Norton, Meow Meow, Emma Williams, Alex Silber, Norm Lewis. Gli ultimi stronzi arrivati, insomma.
Abbiamo riso parecchio, piu' che altro perche' sono un gran banda di cazzoni, Wad inclusa (che ha cantanto una canzone che ha aperto le cateratte del Nilo e ridotto il teatro ad una valle di lacrime).

LESLIE JORDAN: MY TRIP DOWN THE RED CARPET (02.02.11)
Il mitico Beverly Leslie di Will & Grace fa un one man show, andiamo a vedere di che si tratta.
Praticamente il nano piu' gay di tutta Hollywood e dintorni ci racconta la sua infanzia, i suoi inizi nel mondo della tv, gli aneddoti dei suoi co-protagonisti (Fay Dunaway, George Clooney, Mark Harmon), la sua famiglia, il suo coming out, il suo self-omofobismo autodistruttivo, l'alcolismo e la dipendenza da droghe varie.
Onesto e brutale e da sentirsi male dal ridere.

SHOWSTOPPER! THE IMPROVISED MUSICAL (08.02.11)
SONO TORNATI OMFGAJKDHAKJS!!!!!111!!!ONEELEVENTYONE!!ONE!! Ci buttiamo a capofitto in una nuova avventura improvvisata, 60 minuti di delirio puro. Stavolta vediamo PIRAHNARAMA - THE MUSICAL, il delirio di due cantanti d'opera lirica che tentano di salvare la misteriosa foresta amazzonica con l'aiuto di uno sciamano, due immigrati messicani e un albero magico in mezzo a un lago infestato di pirahnas. AKJSDAFKLSDH.
Non ci sono parole. Ci siamo spisciati. Peccato solo che gli Scoobies se lo siano perso :( (ah tra l'altro i due protagonisti erano di nuovo i due di Going Down, e GODDAMNIT LI SHIPPOOOOOOO XDDDD)

SECRET CINEMA presents: THE RED SHOES @ LONDON DOCKLANDS (17.02.11)
Facciamo anche questa cosa super hipster, ovvero comprare biglietti per un film che finche' non ti presenti li' non sai che film e'.
Ti dicono come vestirti (late anni '40 in questo caso) e la localita' e l'ora segreta (Wapping Station, 6.15pm) e tu ti presenti e ci sono un fottio di attori in costume che ti immergono nel film, letterlamente. Ti prendono dalla stazione e in carovana ti portano al luogo della proiezione (The Tobacco Dock, in questo caso, un ex magazzino per tabacco dell'800 che viene ora utilizzato come centro convegni o per party aziendali) dove sei improvvisamente a Covent Garden, intorno all'Opera House, l'anno e' il 1947, gli studenti e gli artisti vibrano intorno agli stands di popcorns al caramello e fish & chips nel cartoccio arrotolato, c'e' da fare e vedere ed esplorare ed ecco che arriva il Signor Lermontov, del Ballet Lermontov, con il suo seguito di segretarie e portaborse e ballerine, e finalmente mi si accende una lampadina nel cervello e capisco che stiamo per vedere Scarpette Rosse. ASKLJFHALKDH. Gioia, gaudio e tripudio. ADDDORO Scarpette Rosse.
Gli attori, sempre in parte, kinda mettono in scena scene del film, c'e' un'esibizione finale e poi ti guidano alla sala assegnata (nominata come un teatro del West End) e, tra gli applausi e i popcorn nel sacchetto a righine come in Dumbo, ti gusti questo spettacolo di film in tutta la sua gloria rimasterizzata e restaurata.



Piango calde lacrime da cinefila incallita. Questo e' solo uno della serie di film che hanno fatto sinora, tra i quali Blade Runner a Canary Wharf, Bugsy Malone al Troxy, Ghostbusters al Lawrence Hall, Qualcuno volo' sul nido del cuculo in un vero manicomio, e un bellissimo Lawrence D'Arabia ad Alexandra Palace.
Se siete in giro quando ne fanno uno, buttateci un occhio, potete registrarvi QUI e vi fanno sapere quando ne cominciano ad organizzare uno nuovo, in ogni caso tendono a farlo ogni 3/4 mesi. Ne vale la pena.

THE WIZARD OF OZ (18.02.11)
Andiamo con TUTTO il booth a vedere l'ennesima zozzeria del Lord. Non si faceva una carovana di colleghi cosi' dai tempi di Paint Never Dries, e sappiamo come e' andata a finire quella volta. Non ho seguito molto devo essere onesta, perche' Wayne poco prima del sipario mi sussurra 'guarda chi c'e' seduto a 4 sedili di distanza?' e KAJLSFHLADHSKJDHA E' JOSEFINA. Col moroso e una ragazzina quattordicenne che sembra essere parente di lui (una figlia? una nipote? Oibo', era abbastanza una scassacazzi..), aveva i capelli stirati come Aeryn Sun e maglia aderente e jeans superskinny e tacco 12 TUTTO NERO OMFG. Non ci ho capito piu' un cazzo, mi dovete perdonare.
La produzione mi e' sembrata costosa e caciarona, come tutto quello che fa il Lord. Danielle un po' una delusione, dopo aver tifato forsennatamente per lei per tutto il reality..il povero cane strattonato a destra e a manca che si mangiava pezzi di set era piu' entertaining del pagliaccio che faceva lo Spaventapasseri. E Hannah. OH, HANNAH. WTF.
Hanno tentato talmente tanto di diversificarsi dalle precedenti versioni di questo show, dal film e da Wicked, che i vestiti di Glinda e Elphaba (LOL, mi rifiuto di chiamarla in qualunque altro modo..) sono uan vomitata di glitter e taffetta'. Glinda figuratevela come un ricciolo di panna montata spruzzata dalla lattina, ma invece di essere bianca, era blu scuro glitteroso. Elphaba era..boh. Einstein in gonna e colorato di verde? Seriously. Nemmeno il cappello a punta, i capelli sono arricciati a punta nel primo atto e sparati in tutte le direzioni nel secondo. MAH. Ovviamente la Wad ha piu' personalita' di tutti gli altri messi assieme, quindi da sola regge l'intero show, viene appesa ai cavi costantemente (oscillando anche un po', non vi dico le risate..) e la sua canzone non faceva schifo..
Ah, e Michael Crowford. LULZ.
Sti cazzi. Io uscendo mi sono fatta tre gloriosi gradini gomito a gomito con Josefina, cosa altro cazzo volete che mi ricordi.
Un paio di minuti di chiaccherata con la Wad che come al solito ci mette na vita a cambiarsi, na vita e mezza a togliersi il verde, e' assediata di cacciatori di autografi, attempati signori americani e OMFG KAJSA HAMMARLUND CHE DI TUTTE LE SERE CHE POTEVA TROVARSI A PASSARE, PROPRIO QUELLA SERA, 'TACCI SUA.
Vabbe', tanto non parliamo mai di cose relative allo show, manco mi ricordo che abbiamo detto. O meglio delirato. Si e' fatta una nuova borsa di Mischa Barton. Interessa a qualcuno oltre che a me? No? I didn't think so.

FLARE PATH (07.03.11)
E finalmente di nuovo Shezza! Allora parto dicendo che mi aspettavo un polpettone di guerra tragico che non finisce mai, e invece ci siamo ammazzati dal ridere. E finisce anche super bene. Ellamado'! Troppa grazia sant'antonio! Sheridan come al solito si porta lo show da sola sulle tenere spallucce, non proietta bene la voce quindi si fatica a sentirla, ma da sola (lei e il tizio che fa il marito nello show) si prendono tante di quelle risate di cuore che ho smesso di contarle. E piange, povera stella. Piange a fiumi e tu piangi con lei, piccola cucciola. DIO ME LA MANGEREI.
Tentiamo di vederla dopo, siamo io e Sabrina, e se vi dico che siamo state quasi travolte da l'orda di paparazzi quando e' uscita Sienna Miller, credetemi non esagero. Siamo vive per puro culo. Sienna sale in macchina e se li porta tutti dietro, mi giro verso la stage door e Sheridan e' appesa alla finestra, con solo gli occhi che spuntano, e' terrorizzata, mi guarda sgranando gli occhi e ci facciamo ciao con la manina.
Mi ha spezzato il cuore vederla cosi'.
Aspettiamo che Wyn (SI. LUI. IL GROSSO GRASSO UOMO PELATO DI WICKED) la vada a recuperare dentro la stage door, aspettiamo l'assalto dei fans weird e dei paparazzi (che accecano lei, noi, Wyn, l'autista della sua macchina, chiunque, non gli importa un cazzo) e ci abbracciamo forte. E come fa sempre, mi dice tutto quello che mi deve dire quando mi sta ancora ancorata al collo (in punta di piedi, perche' sono tipo due teste piu' alta di lei, cicciola..). Parliamo brevemente, scopro anche che non sta bene, ha un po' di raffreddore (non l'avrei mai detto vedendola in scena, ma si vede che e' stanca), ci salutiamo in fretta e la lasciamo andare a riposarsi.
Faccio in tempo ad arrivare a casa rimuginando col mio esprit de l'escalier, le cose non dette e perche' diavolo mi sono presentata a mani vuote manco du' Abbracci o du' Pan di Stelle che diamine! che guardo il cellulare e SCOPRO CHE SHERIDAN MI HA TWITTATO. Per dirmi che mannaggia che sia stato cosi' breve, and it was lovely to see me. E si e' scusata. AKLSJDHKLFHA GESU, GIUSEPPE, MARIA E IL CAMMELLO. Vi giuro mi e' venuto da piangere. Le voglio un bene non quantificabile.

E domenica scorsa si e' portata a casa un bel capoccione di Sir Lawrence Olivier con la sua palandranina bronzea da Richard V, con sotto scritto 'Best Actress in a Musical: SHERIDAN SMITH'.



Fuck yeah.
          Backlog Part 2   
Poi Scoobie Week, e come al solito non ci ho capito piu' un cazzo.
Gli Scoobies per la precisione si sono fatti Londra/Galles/Londra in macchina, e quindi li riagguantiamo a Windsor (senza gita al castello perche' omfg costa tipo 20 sterle a testa, maddecheao'..) e torniamo a Londra giusto in tempo per quello che doveva essere il Grande Cast Change Dell'Anno Ma Poi Non Lo E' Stato Perche' Sheridan Ha Esteso.

LEGALLY BLONDE CAST CHANGE (23.10.10, Mat & Eve)
Ah le matte risate. Ah, i pianti.
Questo cast ti fa sentire di aver speso bene i tuoi soldi, mettendo in scena uno dei muck up piu' assurdi che io abbia mai visto. Eravamo letteralmente sul punto di farcela sotto dal ridere. Non glien'e' fregato veramente un cazzo, hanno dato il 100% e via, tanto e' l'ultimo giorno che possono farti? Ti licenziano? Va via 3/4 di cast, mi pare anche giusto andare via col botto. E quindi ognuno ha dato il suo contributo, chi ha cambiato le battute, chi ha cambiato vestiti, chi ha breakato completamente character..Uno appresso all'altro, senza prendere fiato. Premio Casinista dell'Anno va a Suzie McAdam che era OVUNQUE, anche quando non c'entrava niente, ed ha rubato l'attenzione anche all'ultima scena, mettendosi in ginocchio e chiedendo la mano di Vivienne/Caroline, con tanto di anello. Vivienne/Caroline ha detto si, tanto per la cronaca. Noi eravamo ribaltati.
La sera al solito, il devasto.
Pianti, abbracci, foto con tutti che tanto e' l'ultima sera, che ci frega (le ragazze sono tutte in tiro perche' vanno al party, noi avevamo l'ormone impazzito..)
Sheridan ci fa 'venite lunedi'? Ci vediamo lunedi?'. Si si, veniamo lunedi'.

SHOWSTOPPER! (24.10.10)
Decidiamo di invadere casa della YB e prendere possesso della Wii come al solito, e per puro caso notiamo che al King's Head fanno Showstopper. Io ADDDDORO Showstopper! Cotta e mangiata, prendiamo i biglietti al volo.
Madoh. Sono cosi' deficenti che non si puo' non amarli. Cosi' usando le idee sparate dal pubblico, abbiamo avuto il privilegio e l'onore di vedere (per la prima e unica volta) Going Down, un improvvisato musical di un'ora su una crew di un sottomarino bloccato sott'acqua al largo della Isle of Skye in Scozia. Non avete idea. Si stava quasi per chiamare Ninja Penguins, ma l'MC l'ha bocciato, chissa' come mai. Brilliant. Adesso trasferiscono nel West End, e non sto nella pelle. Se vi capita, fateci un salto.

LEGALLY BLONDE (25.10.10)
Arriva lunedi', andiamo a vedere il nuovo cast, e Sheridan non esce. MAPPORC. Vabbe'. Il nuovo cast e' nice, Denise Van Outen potrebbe anche imparare a recitare nel frattempo, ma non sembra essere una sua priorita', quindi per ora ha i tempi comici di un batufollo di laniccia. Il mio amico Lincoln adesso fa il padre di Elle/professore di Harvard/cronista al processo al posto di Andy Mace, ed e' bravo assai. La nuova Margot e' average, niente di che..
La nuova Vivienne e' Siobhan Dillon, di How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria-ana memoria, precisamente quesa QUI, che e' una figa immane ed e' anche brava. La sua nota spacca candelabri e' all'altezza di Kate Shindle, e ho detto tutto. E' ciccia ma la odio perche' e' una di quelle che ti ci fai la foto insieme e anche se fossi al meglio del meglio, verresti fuori un cesso perche' lei sfolgora, e' alta tre metri e ha una pelle perfetta sotto ogni luce. ODIO.
Il fidanzato di PrettyPretty fa uno dei due professori di Harvard. Il nuovo Carlos non e' da strapparsi i capelli ma e' decente. Il resto tutti ai loro posti, swings compresi, Jane a coprire tutti e Lucy Miller a fare da secondo in comando.

Unica nota stonata e' che ci siamo scapicollati in macchina a tornare da Windsor ed arrivare in tempo a 39 Steps..e Dianne era off. Non solo off, era proprio in viaggio di nozze. Marky e' devastato, ma le lasciamo comunque un pensierino alla stage door, e dopo qualche giorno Mark riceve una lettera di scuse da Dianne, mortificata. (dev'essere l'unica persona al mondo a scrivere ancora lettere con foglio e penna invece di emails, dio la benedica, e' piu' inglese di Jane Austen..)
La grande storia tra Mark e Dianne continua, e noi shippiamo sempre di piu'.

Nel frattempo ci chiude Sweet Charity, Avenue Q, Sister Act, e meta' della gente che conosco nel West End se ne va a spasso senza un lavoro. Che vita dura.
Josefina e' finita a fare Me & My Girl non so dove, credo a Manchester..
Paoletto lo Speziale e' impegnato a produrre i suoi duemila shows (tra cui When We Are Married al Garrick) e a fare un album che esce a maggio prossimo (LOL).
CJ non ho ben capito, credo sia parte di una all girls band tipo Puppini Sisters..
E Katie, poraccia, e' finita nella solito Panto natalizia in culo al mondo, a fare Biancaneve.
Che vita grama.

Novembre e' stato un mese un po' loffio, sono stata trascinata a vedere i PARAMORE all'O2 (15.11.10), in mezzo ad una masnada di 14enni..meno male che Hayley Williams e' bravissima dal vivo e ne e' valsa la pena..

LEGALLY BLONDE (18.11.10)
Ultimo Blonde dell'anno per vedere com'e' Susan McFadden al posto di Sheridan e per vedere finalmente il mio amico, che continuiamo a mandarci messaggi e texts senza incrociarci..
Piu' che soddisfatta da Susan, che e' bellissima e bravissima e una Elle perfetta. Forse troppo perfetta. E' funny e tenera, ma non ha assolutamente il fattore 'ti amo all'istante' che scatena Sheridan. E' la Elle che ti aspetti, che siede composta e in testa ha le pigne, non ha quella furbizia innata di Sheridan che ti fa adorare Elle. Ma funziona lo stesso, don't get me wrong..
E finalmente trovo anche il mio amichetto Lincoln, che ci porta a bere al pub all'angolo senza indugi. (e' troppo giovane secondo me per fare il padre di Elle, ma non gliel'ho detto, non sono idiota..)

E finalmente l'ultimo musical del 2010:

LOVE STORY (29.11.10)
Il musical fortemente voluto da Michael Ball, con la nostra Emma Williams, uno dei due principi di Into The Woods a Regent's Park e Peter Policarpou che e' il mio spirit animal personale e gli voglio un gran bene.
La storiella e' sempre quella, boy meets girl, si piacciono, si scontrano, si sposano, lei e' malata di leucemia e muore. Fine della storia.
Ma in mezzo c'e' una storia di due persone che si incontrano e vogliono stare insieme nonostante tutto. Finisce, prima o poi, ma hanno avuto un po' di tempo insieme in fin dei conti..
Set spartano, e' un loft newyorkese dipinto di bianco, l'orchestra in findo al palco ma tutti ben visibili, due porte, qualche sedia, un paio di tavoli, un bancone di cucina funzionante.
La melodia e' una sola, ripetuta costantemente durante i 90 minuti (senza intervallo), cambiano solo le parole. La famosa musichetta del film viene suonata da lei al pianoforte, per un attimo, giusto accennata. E la famosa battuta, l'atroce 'Amare significa non dover mai dire mi dispiace', e' stata eradicata e nuked from orbit, e meno male perche' la trovo orrenda. E mentre i due innamorati sfigati cercano di incollare la loro vita che sfascia, c'e' Policarpou dietro che fa il papa' italoamericano di Boston, piu' vero del vero e piu' vivo del vivo, e distrugge ogni cliche'.
Non ho capito se mi e' piaciuto o no. Di sicuro non l'ho odiato. Di sicuro non mi ha fatto strappare i capelli. Vale la pena vederlo, sicuramente.

Poi, che altro?

Ah si, GAGA all'O2 (17.12.10). Stavolta dalla fossa dei leoni, stavolta dalla seconda fila. E ancora una volta, e' impossibile spiegare Gaga, se non la vedi in concerto non sai qual e' la vera Gaga, non sai che quella che vedi in tv e nei videoclip non e' la vera Mama Monster.
Una volta che sei tu, lei e altri ventimila scalmanati, diventa tutto chiaro. Ti rendera' libero e non sarai piu' lo stesso.

Pensa, talmente loffio st'inverno che sono andata persino al cinema. Non so se rendo, AL CINEMA. E non solo al cinema, ALL'IMAX. OMG, RIGHT? Abbiamo visto Harry Potter, pensa! E Tron! Ebbene si! E The King's Speech! OMG SONO IMPAZZITA, LO SO.
Non e' da me, prometto che smetto presto.

Ultimissimo show dell'anno, il mio amico Ian e' in un gruppo che si esibisce al King's Head (19.12.10), quindi acchiappo la moglie e vado a vederlo. Fanno una roba tipo mash up accappella armonizzati con un twist irriverente. Sono funny e scemi il giusto. E' venuta anche la collega Liz, la rossa canadese che parla come Joanne Kelly. La moglie conclude che avevo ragione io ed e' hot. Io sono solo tre anni che lo dico..

E concludiamo l'anno come sempre, a massacrarci di cibo a casa dei Bad Idea Bears, a guardare i fuochi d'artificio in tv e a SCORDARCI DI MANGIARE LE LENTICCHIE MA COME SI FA DICO IO, OGNI SANTO ANNO. XD

Quindi buon anno nuovo e che sia pieno di risate e stronzate come l'anno vecchio. Only better.
          Backlog Part 1   
Tutto quel casino che ho fatto e alla fine ci sono andata, a vedere l'anniversario di Les Mis all'O2 con Zio Martin.
Che drama queen, che sono..
Ho detto di si perche' se dicevo di no rischiavo che non mi avrebbe mai offerto piu' niente. La logistica del tutto e' stata cotta e mangiata sul momento.

LES MISERABLES 25TH ANNIVERSARY @ O2 (03.10.10)
Mi catapulto ottocento ore prima just in case, e ho fatto bene perche' poi ci ho messo vent'anni a trovare Martin. L'O2 e' bello grosso, e lui da le direzioni peggio di mia madre.
A fatica raggiungo la fine dei ristoranti dove c'e' uno slargo immenso pieno di gente che va e viene (e' appena finita la matinee), siamo al telefono e ci facciamo la simpatica scenetta del 'mi vedi? io non ti vedo, come sei vestito?' e lui fa 'Sono quello che gira in tondo, weeeeee!' e vedo un deficente nel mezzo dello slargo che gira su se stesso a braccia aperte. LOL. Ma lol forte.
Ci corriamo incontro a rallenty come due idioti, mi da i biglietti, veniamo importunati da una vecchietta che voleva sapere dov'era il bagno e ha attaccatto un pippone che non finiva piu', ci salutiamo e passo ore ad aspettare Kat e Vicky (che venivano comunque per fatti loro per vedere Gina Beck) che pensano bene di presentarsi con tutta calma a dieci minuti dall'inizio dello show, perdere una vita intera al cash machine e poi farmi ingozzare per mangiare qualcosa per cena. Il biglietto extra, visto che la Moglie non poteva venire, l'ho dato a Monica che, nonostante avesse da fare nel pomeriggio, e' arrivata con largo anticipo e gia' mangiata. Applauso.
Lo show e' stato..wow.
Tutti bravi tutti belli. Tranne il Jonas Brother che era imbarazzante e ho davvero creduto che gli avessero staccato il microfono, aveva due sputi di fiato. Un cane atroce.
Alfie bravissimo Valjean, Norm FUCKING Lewis immenso Javert (madonna che figone che e'..), Sam Barks, a cui avevo tirato i pomodori quando voleva diventare una Nancy (vi ricordate? Era quella che aveva fatto cambiare il nome della Isle of Mann?), a dir poco incredibile come Eponine, voce pazzesca, l'intero O2 ammutolito.
Il tizio di Little Britain come Thernadier disgustoso il giusto, Earl Carpenter come Bishop (!!), ogni tanto intravedo Jon Robyns nell'ensamble, su nel coro (una masnada di attori del West End in tshirt con sopra Cosette) c'e' gente come Cassie Compton PrettyPretty, Andy Mace, Tracy Bennett, praticamente chiunque sia mai stato in Les Mis..
E alla fine il cast del Barbican, il cast che ha performato or ora e il cast del Queen's, tutti in tiro a cantare One Day More, si separano tipo Mar Rosso e lasciano entrare il Cast Originale del 1985. SANTA MADREDIDDIO. Se ne e' sceso 'o teatro.
Gli hanno fatto fatto fare un pezzo di canzone anche a loro (lol alla Ruffelle che e' partita shaky e sembrava Cindy Lauper e ha concluso la sua strofa spaccando il culo a tutti gli altri con una nota pazzesca..) e gran finalone coi 4 Valjean (l'originale, quello del Queen's, quello del Barbican e Alfie) fanno un bel Bring Him Home in round che ha sciolto tutti. D'aaaawww.

Speech finale di MacKintosh, Boublil e Shoenberg, tutti commossi, tutti mezzi rintronati (c'hanno pure una certa eta'..), bravi tutti. Applausi.


A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE @ BOLTON (06.10.10, matinee)
Ultima capatina a vedere Streetcar da un'angolazione leggermente diversa, finalmente vediamo piu' della nuca di Boo.
Sempre immensa, sempre un cazzotto allo stomaco. Quando vengono a portare via Blanche c'e' una collutazione, le vogliono mettere la camicia di forza e l'infermiera la sbatte a faccia avanti sul letto, e Boo non fa altro che urlare e piangere e singhiozzare e omfg. Fa un male cane.
Non riusciamo nemmeno a vederla, le lasciamo dei Pan di Stelle alla stage door e andiamo via, un po' meste.

Il 13 e il 20 abbiamo avuto SHERYL CROW, prima all'Hammersmith (dove eravamo sedute davanti a Rachel Tucker, quindi abbiamo bondato in quanto fangirls di Sheryl..) e poi al Dingwalls a Camden. Macello esagerato, talento a pacchi, gnoccaggine acuta (minchia, ha quasi 50 anni. E' una figa inimmaginabile..), ottenuto sia la scaletta che il plettro come da tradizione.

LOVE ON THE DOLE @ BOLTON (15.10.10, matinee)
E ci ritroviamo subito subito sullo stesso treno della Virgin, direzione Manchester.
*sospiro* Play diversa, praticamente stesso cast. Boo stavolta e' sweet e innamorata per i primi due atti, poi la tragedia e diventa un mostro pur di sopravvivere. E Kieran fa il fidanzato tisico che muore alla manifestazione operaia, tanto per cambiare. Sono di un ciccio insieme che mi e' esploso il cuore. Lui e' alto due teste piu' di lei, ad un certo punto le ha messo la propria giacca sulle spalle e l'ha stretta forte e lei e' sparita nell'abbraccio. Oh, my heart. Shippo.
Stavolta la vediamo, la vediamo eccome. Probabilmente e' stato il nostro incontro piu' bello. Nel senso che non sapeva piu' come esprimere quanto era importante il fatto che fossimo venute, e quante insicurezze le abbiamo aiutato a sopprimere, e ad un certo punto si e' tipo lanciata addosso a Manu. Non mi ricordo che le ha detto, ma dev'essere stata la cosa giusta. Abbracci a ripetizione (e gli abbracci di Boo sono..GAH.) baci, strizzate di mano (cioe', ti prende la mano e te la stringe forte..cosi' mentre ci allontaniamo le nostre mani si stanno ancora toccando e rimaniamo ancorate per le dita. Non so se rendo..) e foto perche' quando ci ricapita? Veniamo orrende e la schiacciamo in un crazeball sandwich, ma sti cazzi.
Kieran suggerisce tipo di portarci in macchina alla stazione, noi svicoliamo con maestria perche OMG ti immagini l'awkwardness, e andiamo via sorridendo/piangendo. Come ogni, santa, fottuta, volta. Il sollievo e l'adrenalina si mischiano e mi riducono ad una pozzanghera sul selciato. Ogni volta cerco di descrivere come mi sento, ma e' impossibile. E' complicated. Fate conto che e' piu' o meno come vi sentivate nei confronti della vostra prima cotta. Solo che non passa mai.

AVENUE Q (18.10.10)
Andiamo a vedere Paoletto, e Ave Q che chiude a fine mese, ma in realta' andiamo a parlare di Boo.
Paoletto e' una gran lella, ma ci ama a modo suo. Parliamo di Boo, dei prossimi progetti, di quanto hanno significato lui e Boo per noi in questi 4 anni. Lui ride garrulo. In testa, il vuoto cosmico, ma il cranio e' tappezzato di glitter. Vuoi mettere?

Alle zozzerie non c'e' mai fine, come ben sappiamo.

Cominciamo con quelle televisive! SIGLA!



Ebbene si, altre sfide a colpi di canzoni improbabili, macellazione plurima di successi intramontabili e abuso premeditato di showtunes.
Ci mancano schizzi di sangue e saturazione dei colori e sembra di guardare una puntata di "Spartacus: Blood & Sand".
Invece no, e' solo il Lord che sceglie (rigorosamente a caso, ricordiamoci..) la pulzella che sta settimana non va a casa.

Povere. Loro si sono gia' affezionate, sono gia' BFF&ever, si amano alla follia, sono ormai come sorelle..*notate il mio tono incredulo/sarcastico?*

Fatto sta che, come predetto, la fossette-dotata Dani va a casa perche' diciamocelo, si muove come un facocero ubriaco, la vogliamo davvero mettere nel West End?
No, vero?
Ecco, a casa a calci. (assomiglia anche vagamente a Jesse Buckley grassa, e sappiamo tutti quanto io ami Jesse..BLEURGH..)
Mi sorprende solo che la sua sfidante fosse Danielle, che io do come favorita.
E non la do per favorita perche' conosco la sua insegnante di recitazione Helen (che ha avuto anche il suo stacchettino televisivo! Invece di far vedere la mamma, o che ne so, la famiglia a casa con le magliette fatte a mano che dicono "Danielle for Dorothy" o qualcosa di altrettanto ameno..no! Danielle ha lo stacchettino strappalacrime-casoumano della sua insegnante di recitazione SLASH mentore SLASH mamma chioccia! Se non e' ammmore questo..), la do per favorita perche' effettivamente e' la piu' brava la' dentro.
E non ti fa venire voglia di prenderla a schiaffi, che e' gia' un bel passo avanti.

L'altra volta con le Nancy, Jodie vinse per via della sua personalita' ciociara ed esuberante, vagamente pasticciona e terra terra.
Probabilmente non era la piu' adatta al ruolo, probabilmente non era quella con piu' talento, la sua performance e' obiettivamente piena di cheese e way over the top.
Ma aveva talmente tanta personalita' da traboccare e il pubblico a casa, che di talento non ci capisce un beneamato cazzo ma ha come minimo 6 telefonini dentro casa, vota perche' gli stai simpa. Non perche' hai talento. Basta che sei simpa. Uh, e Jodie era simpa assai.

Qui, a sto giro? Personalita' poca.
E quella che c'e' la vorresti sopprimere a badilate forti.
Quindi spingiamo sul talento e chissa', che sia la volta buona che vince qualcuno che sa VERAMENTE fare il lavoro per cui verra' pagata? (sempre 6 show a settimana, perche' figurati! Il Lord prende gente che non ha la stamina ne' il training e poi va in giro affermando che le sue leading ladies "non si devono rovinare la voce con 8 show a settimana", quindi fanno solo 6 show. Salvo poi farne fare 8 a gente come Kerry Ellis, che pora stronza, ha fatto anche la drama school e anni di gavetta. Se lo poteva evitare, no? visto che basta andare in tv per diventare una 'leading lady'..*sentite il mio tono polemico?*)

Quindi aspettiamo sabato/domenica per vederne fatta fuori un'altra, probabilmente una delle altre due che mi sta sul culo, o Emilie-col-buco-tra-i-denti o Jenny-con-l'acne, di rado sbaglio predizioni..

Nel frattempo, settimana un po' loffia..

GRUMPY OLD WOMEN 2: CHIN UP BRITAIN (20.04.10)
Direttamente dallo show televisivo (e direttamente dal tour nazionale), presentiamo: le Vecchie Brontolone!
Ovvero, tre donne che si lamentano. Di tutto. Non e' che si lamentano, a dirla tutta. Dicono la verita'. E gli uomini in sala non si vogliono sentir dire la verita'.
Non vogliono sapere di menopausa, cicli sballati, ansie da pulizie di casa, rapporti col vicinato/coi figli/con le amiche/col sesso.
Due ore di lamentele serrate. Niente che vostra mamma non faccia quando vi bracca sul divano, mentre lei lava i piatti e voi tentate invano di guardare Gilmore Girls..
A noi donne non sembra altro che l'esposizione della realta' come la conosciamo, solo in a very funny way.
Per gli uomini e' OMG DI CHE COSA STANNO PARLANDO QUESTE!?
Io mi sono squartata. Sono grumpy old woman anche io sa, che vi credete? 30 anni e' piu' che sufficente per diventarlo.
Nel cast la abrasiva Jenny Eclair, che ne dice di tutti i colori e poi ghigna come i bambini che dicono le barzellette sporche di Pierino, la overacting Wendi Peters che fa solo facce brutte e ammazza un po' il testo..e lei, Suzie "Madame Morrible" Blake, adorabile, funny, multitalented e simpatica senza sforzo, si becca le risate piu' grosse per il semplice modo con cui dice le battute, e se le merita.
Punto vero e proprio della serata e' ridare agli uomini la loro spina dorsale, ai britannici la loro britishness e alle donne il loro meritato ruolo da imperatrici del mondo.
Probabilmente non ci riusciranno, ma nel frattempo ci fanno fare un sacco di risate.

ALL THE FUN OF THE FAIR (21.04.10)
Dunque, c'era un tizio di nome David Essex (che mi dicono sia un cantante famoso, io non l'ho mai sentito nemmeno di striscio..), che aveva una giostra itinerante..e c'era suo figlio, un coattello senza talento, e un paio di ensemble inutili dietro, ok? Poi c'era Nicola Brazil (ex ensamble Wicked, ex penosa Sandy in Grease) col vestito rosa da Glinda e le extensions tipo gatto morto in testa, che faceva la figlia del ricco mafioso che si innamora del figlio di David Essex, ok? OK.
Dunque. Poi..Ah si, c'era lo scagnozzo del mafioso che mette a soqquadro la fiera perche'..perche'..boh non mi ricordo, ma deve avere a che fare con la figlia del mafioso col gatto morto in testa..(in testa alla figlia, non al mafioso. Il mafioso era pelato.) C'era una chiaroveggente con un accento molesto e sua figlia (con accento ancora piu' molesto) innamorate rispettivamente del padre/David Essex e del figlio coatto.
Ah, e poi c'e' Shona "gambetta di legno" White, o meglio la tizia che si e' ingoiata Shona, perche' e' diventata il doppio di quello che era..Da standby Elphaba e' finita a vendere i palloncini sullo sfondo, in jeans a dir poco unflattering per una che di culo e' gia' sulla via della richiesta di condono edilizio. Poraccia.
Ogni tanto calano dal soffitto cavalli da carosello e entrano in scena macchine a scontro traballanti (cioe' un triciclo con sopra la scocca di una macchina a scontro) che girano in tondo perche' voglio dire, e' il Garrick eh? Dove cazzo le vuoi far andare..
Insomma partono le canzoni, finiscono le canzoni, ripartono altre canzoni...
Mai sentite. Ma nemmeno per sbaglio. Non so cosa c'entrassero.
Dialoghi..mah, lasciamo perdere.
Poi finisce il primo tempo, noi colleghi ci guardiamo inorriditi e mormorando un 'goodness, would you look at the time? Meglio che vada, c'ho il gatto sul fuoco..' ce la filiamo alla chetichella.
Non sapremo mai come va a finire.
E pensare che hanno osato chiudere un capolavoro come Zorro. Tsk.

Mamma mia che zozzeria.


Che altro?

La Roma e' prima in classifica.

Idina e' apparsa in Glee, come la madonna, ancora un po' pienotta dalla gravidanza.

Sta nuvola del piffero se ne sta sfanculando verso il Mare del Nord, quindi possiamo tornare alle nostre vite..c'ho un amico bloccato in Cina che forse rientra tra due giorni, i Whingers sono bloccati a NYC (poracci, ve'?), John Owen Jones e' ormai di casa a Sharm El Sheik e non ha fatto in tempo a tornare per la apertura del Tour di Les Mis a Edinburgo (aggiungerei: LOL), Paul e' quasi gia' in volo per la Florida per il matrimonio di cui e' Testimone e per cui stava sclerando da una settimana..e io mi faccio un quattro giorni a Roma di meritato riposo, e vaffanculo. Ma non voglio fare niente di niente di niente di NIENTE. Voglio mangiare i piatti di mamma, voglio dormire, farmi comprare roba dai parenti e prendere un po' di sole.

Non mi dovrei lamentare, siamo stati graziati da un paio di settimane di sole e cielo limpido, ma fa un cazzo di freddo, eccheddiamine..Ho messo via guanti e sciarpe, mi rifiuto di tirarle fuori di nuovo, ecco. *e fu cosi', bambini, che mi beccai la polmonite..*

Siamo ancora un po' nervosetti, direi che un po' di vacanza fa bene a tutti.

          Spring Cleaning   
Mi sono distratta un attimo ed e' arrivata la primavera.

L'attimo prima ero in cappotto e sciarpa di lana, e oggi siamo in shorts e infradito.

Londra e' tutto un turbinare di petali di ciliegio nel vento e narcisi gialli e gemme verdi sugli alberi e una sfilata infinita di occhiali da sole di marca.

Noi westendaioli ce ne sbattiamo pero', perche' siamo felici solo al chiuso, in un teatro buio, seduti su una poltroncina scomoda di velluto rosso per il quale non abbiamo pagato una lira (sono i posti migliori, credetemi, anche se lo show fa cagare. Il fatto che tu non abbia sborsato un soldo per vederlo te lo fa godere ad un livello quasi orgasmico..), e 'primavera' nel nostro linguaggio significa: NUOVA STAGIONE TEATRALE! *applauso*

Questo e' il periodo nel quale siamo invitati a talmente tanti show che ti ritrovi a rifiutare i biglietti perche' hai gia' uno show quella sera, e va bene tutto ma sdoppiarsi mi sembra esagerato..

Cambiano i casts e cambiano gli show, pulizie in tutti i sensi (prima incazzatura della stagione: Emma Barton, la tizia che era Roxie nel Tour di Chicago quando Twinnie era Velma, fara' Roxie anche nel West End. Certo, la tizia di EastEnders si, ma Twinnie no? Perche' mi sorprendo anche, mi chiedo..)

Ma prima di cominciare una nuova stagione cerchiamo di finire di vedere quella vecchia.

LEGALLY BLONDE (05/04/10)
La scusa ufficiale che ci siamo date e' che volevamo vedere Andy come Callahan e Lucy come Serena.
La verita'? E' che ci mancava Sheridan.
E non c'e' niente di piu' bello di sentirsi dire 'Mi siete mancate'. E' una piccola frase detta con aria seria e un abbraccio/stritolata, ma e' tutto quello che ti serve. E poi mi squadra, da capo a piedi, forse per vedere se sono ancora tutta intera? E' quasi un mese che non ci vediamo..
Niente. Tutto qui. Scherza, ride, rimbalza a destra e a manca, viene interrotta dai fan duemila volte e non dice mai no, torna, riparte, va a salutare altra gente, ritorna, dice stronzate, ci facciamo un altro giro di abbracci, e di nuovo 'Aw, I missed you..' mentre abbraccia la Moglie..
Basta poco, checcevo'?
E poi tutti al Trocadero per il torneo di bowling di Blonde. Sheridan e Caroline in squadra Verde, Sorelle nella Rossa, Alex, Jane e Suzie in Blu..tutti battuti pesantemente da Tamara e Duncan e il resto della Squadra Rosa. (a dire la verita', Shezza e le altre partono svantaggiate: come cazzo fai a giocare a bowling con quelle unghie???)

Sta settimana invece il mio Boss, molto gentilmente, mi imbuca all'ultimo momento al Garrick:

THE LITTLE DOG LAUGHED (09/04/10)
Volevo vedere Tamsin Greig prima della chiusura, e ho fatto bene.
Lo show e' una 'edgy comedy' stile sit-com come Will & Grace. L'idea e' carina e ben messa in scena, da una parte l'attorino di Hollywood che vuole fare coming out e la sua rampante agente in tacchi a spillo e power suits che ce lo vuole rinchiudere dentro, ma proprio a quattro mandate e con le assi inchiodate sulle porte, e dall'altra parte il prostituto newyorkese oggetto del desiderio e la sua scapestrata ex GF/migliore amica.
I due ragazzi sono cute ma niente per cui strapparsi i capelli, Gemma Arterton e' cresciuta bene e devo dire che si e' fatta proprio bellina (la Moglie la continua a chiamare Miss Evangelista. Non so piu' come spiegarglielo. La scambia per Talulah Riley, che era Miss Evangelista in Doctor Who ed era in St' Trinian's con Gemma Arterton. Vediamo se visualmente funziona:



E' chiaro adesso? Bene, proseguiamo.)

Dicevo, si, Gemmuccia si e' fatta bellina bellina, e ha una bel pianto a comando.
Ma lo show e' geniale perche' c'e' Tamsin.
Favolosa. E il suo personaggio era anche lesbico, e ad un certo punto adocchia neanche tanto velatamente Gemma. Gh.
Brillante e provocativo, nonostante siano mezzi vuoti, la balcony sia chiusa e meta' dei biglietti vengano dati via a meta' prezzo, alla fine c'e' un boato di ovazione e il pubblico si spella le mani. Bravi tutti.

Ah, si, poi abbiamo incontrato Clare.
No anzi, non l'abbiamo incontrata, ci e' passata vicino in banchina a Leicester Sq e si e' seduta, con aria pensierosa, a due metri di distanza
Siamo andate nel panico, ignorandola completamente cercando di non guardare nella sua direzione.
Complimenti per il comportamento maturo, vero?
Lo so, sono senza parole.
Non la vedo da sei mesi e cosa faccio? Mi faccio venire le lacrime agli occhi e vado in iperventilazione, chiaro.
Da brava persona adulta. *si prende a schiaffi*
          Cose sparse   
Quello che e' successo sto mese, prima della fatidica Scoobie Week.

CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF (08.03.10)
Si lo so, non e' da me andare a vedere plays, ma sto cast sembrava amazing, mi sono detta perche' no, tanto mica pago io..*ehm*
Ne valeva la pena.
Mi hanno stesa, tutti quanti. Pure Adrian Lester che saltella su un una gamba sola perche' l'altra ce l'ha ingessata. James Earl Jones e' immenso. E Phylicia Rashad. OMG. La signora Robinson. Roba da matti. Se ci ripenso mi esplodono le celluline grigie..
Tre ore che manco le senti, stavo letteralmente aggrappata all'orlo del sedile, praticamente in apnea.

LEGALLY BLONDE (11.03.10)
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! TAMARA AS BROOKE. ODDIO ODDIO ODDIO.
Madonna santa. Da standing ovation.
Si ok, e' arancione (mi dicono dalla regia non e' lampada, e' che e' mezza nera..) e si ok, ha una faccia funny, ma vi giuro su dio. Spaziale.
Nonostante sia una cover e' piena di personalita' (al contratrio di qualcuno che non nominero' *coughAMYcough*), balla divinamente, ha senso comico, un fisico invidiabile e una voce niente male. Tanti cuoricini a Tamara <3 <3 <3.
Vince punti per aver rimediato a un malfunzionamento del guardaroba da oscar: le si sono strappati i pantaloni arancioni della prigione dall'inguine al ginocchio nel mezzo di 'Whip it into shape'. Stra LOOOOOL. Con molta prontezza di riflessi, si e' tolta la giacchina arancione e se l'e' legata in vita, ma dalla prima fila era ancora un bel vedere..*is a perv*
Tanti cuoricini a Tamara, sisi <3 <3 <3


HANNAH'S CABARET @ MENIER (17 & 20.03.10)
Cambia il setting, cambia la scaletta (Heaven on their minds? Mambo Italiano? Thriller?! HELL TO THE YES!), ma la sostanza non cambia: questo donnino potrebbe cantare anche lo scontrino della Coin ed essere credibile.
Anche stavolta, Wad Girls al completo, siamo finite alle 3 del mattino a cazzeggiare sui divanetti della Menier, e Hannah per l'occasione ha sfoggiato la felpa della House of Wad col mio stemmino sopra. *high five virtuale con le altre Wad Girls*




(LOL)
Noi amiamo la Wad, sempre e comunque. <3

Poi ci siamo fatti un sonno a vedere gli OLIVIERS AWARDS a casa della YellowBadIdeaBear
C'e' un motivo per cui questa cosa non va in televisione. Na barba mai vista. Ma dico io, se finalmente vi decidete a mandarlo in streaming via internet, che almeno sia uno spettacolo, qualcosa che la gente voglia guardare..
Invece c'era una sala ricevimenti piena tipo 'matrimonio di mio cuggggino', Anthony Head evidentemente brillo a presentare, un paio di esibizioni tristissime di musical vari, e un'interruzione di un'ora, dalle 8pm alle 9pm, perche' loro dovevano cenare.
Giuro su dio. Head ha salutato tutti, si e' sentito clamore di posate sui piatti e gente che si abboffava, ed e' partito uno slideshow di foto da facebook di dietro le quinte di shows del West End.
Diciamo che sono cose che ai Tonys non succedono.
Per non parlare delle 'vittorie'. Hannah derubata da Sam Spiro come miglior attrice in un musical (per carita', tutto l'amore del mondo alla Spiro, ma se la sua Dolly era meglio della Desiree di Hannah, io mi mangio le scarpette da ballo dei bimbi di Billy Elliot..*fa polemica gratuita*). Spring Awakening Miglior New Musical (ti viene da chiederti come mai quello sia chiuso da mesi e invece gira ancora roba come Dreamboats & Petticoats?), scontatissimo Miglior Costume a Priscilla e Hello Dolly Miglior Revival (che vabbe', ha battuto ALNM, ma questo significa che Josefina piccina piccio' ha vinto un Olivier di traverso, e quindi YAY <3), che ha anche fatto la migliore delle Put On Your Sunday Clothes con tanto di coreografia del treno e tutto l'ambaradan, includendo anche Josefina nel suo adorabile vestito lilla (che in quella canzone non c'e' nemmeno *applauso sentito* Grazie, signor coreografo!)
Hannah ha fatto una delle sue migliori Send In The Clowns, indossando IL vestito, quello che la fa sembrare un Bacio Perugina, taglio Grease senza maniche, con sottoveste fuffosa, blu con le stelline dorate, tipo carta da cielo del presepe. Genio.
Attimo di commozione al premo alla carriera a Maggie Smith, che sembra essersi ripresa bene dalla terapia e ha scudisciato tutti con la sua classe, il suo senso dell'umorismo e una grande umilta'.
Attimo di sbavo spinto per Rachelina Weisz che vince come Miglior Attrice in una play. *lovesicksigh*
Premio peggior speech va a Mark Rylance, che e' gia' e' strano di suo, poi m'e' sembrato anche lui un po' brillo..ha parlato per 20 minuti di fuffa. Non ho idea di che cazzo abbia detto, io (e tutta la sala) ci siamo distratti dopo la seconda o terza frase sconclusionata. Mi ricordo solo che ha detto 'non me lo merito, non e' merito mio, e' tutto merito dello sceneggiatore e del regista..'
Ma allora vaffanculo, posa la statuetta e torna a magna' er dolce, che ce stai solo a fa' perde tempo, perdio!
Gran finalone del cast di Londra di Les Mis mashato up con il cast del Tour di Les Mis, a beltare out One Day More. *mind blown* Cioe', John Owen Jones, Jon e Martin sullo stesso palco..MITICO.
(Martin e' sempre disgustoso, Jon e' l'Enjolras piu' coatto che abbia mai visto, e lo amo.)

AVENUE Q (23.03.10)
Ci invitano di nuovo a Via Q, che ha di nuovo cambiato casa, adesso e' al Wyndham's (cosi', giusto per confondere i turisti..)
Mi rifiuto di ascoltare le critiche mosse dai miei colleghi, che sembrano voler sempre e solo dire 'ma era meglio quello prima'. Mi verrebbe anche da dire 'grazie ar cazzo', visto che il tuo unico termine di paragone sono Julie Atherton e Jon Robins, vorrei anche vedere, sono il cast originale..vabbe', inutile che mi metto qui a discutere da sola.
Il nuovo cast vale il prezzo del biglietto, e mi sento ancora di consigliarlo a tutti per una fun night out. (ammesso che abbiate senso dell'umorismo, comprensione medio/buona della lingua inglese e zero peli sulla lingua..)
          Scoobie Week, Easter 2010 Edition   
FELLOW OZIANS! It's true, the Wicked Witch of West, nella forma di Alexia 'Psychonefandezza' Khadime, is dead!

Minchia, il cast change piu' sofferto della storia. Solo per Dianne avremmo potuto sopportare uno show del genere..

Ma non corriamo. Prima dell'arrivo degli Scoobies io, la Moglie e la YellowBadIdeaBear ci siamo fatti una gitarella fuori porta nella ridente (pe' modo de di'..) Bromley, per sciacquarci le orecchie dalle nefandezze di Love Never Dies (qui ribattezzato Paint Never Dries, perche' guardare quello show e' come guardare la vernice che asciuga..) con un Lloyd Webber d'annata:


EVITA UK TOUR (25.03.10)
Ahhhh, ci voleva.
Stesso tour che abbiamo visto a Cambridge, ma senza Woodsie. 'Che' nemmeno paragonabile a Matt 'Paraculo' Rowle, ma onesto e voce solida, Peron era lo stesso di maggio scorso (lol, aggiungerei, ormai va in giro con la casa sulle spalle, come un paguro bernardo, questo e' un anno che non torna a casa sua?), e la Eva, certa Abigail Jaye, ha una faccia strana ma una voce invidiabile, e si e' fatta gli ultimi 15 minuti a piangere come 'na disperata, diciamo da You Must Love Me fino alla fine, sempre cantando. Li mortacci.
Mi ha fatto passare lo shock di realizzare che Buenos Aires e' in playback. E, mi si dice dalla regia, che in tour e' sempre in playback. WHUT. No seriously, WTF?? MA COME E' IN PLAYBACK!? *e' ancora allibita*
Comunque ci voleva. *Evita = delizioso magone allo stomaco*

And now, for something completely different, parliamo dell'orrore Khadime:

WICKED CAST CHANGE (27.03.10)
E meno male che non siamo andati alla matinee! DUE PALLE COSI'.
Come cazzo fai a cantare di naso, di petto e a tentare di riffare nella stessa frase? E' chiaro che ti incarti. Povera idiota.
Va in giro dicendo che ha otto ottave di estensione vocale.
Glielo devono spiegare che tentare di usarle tutte nella stessa frase non e' proprio consigliabile, se non vuoi che i tuoi spettatori si scompiscino dalle risate ogni volta che apri bocca, come e' successo a noi.
Vi giuro, come diceva Valex, l'intera fila stava tremando perche' noi 5 stavamo praticamente in lacrime a forza di ridere.
Un psst psst internettiano (e un applauso/boato all'intervallo) ci fanno capire che c'e' Kerry negli stalls, bella de casa..
Dunque.
La povera Dianne ha dato il 120%, ma da sola non basta a farci stare seri, quando la protagonista e' sul palco in preda a crisi isteriche per 3 ore. Senza motivazione alcuna. Sembrerebbe che a drama school, alla signorina Khadime sia stato detto che per dare carattere al personaggio la devi fare schizzata, isterica, antipatica e soprattutto buttare note a caso, aprire bocca e sperare per il meglio.
Dopo Defying Gravity abbiamo avuto bisogno di 10 minuti per riprenderci dall'ilarita' generata dalla peggior Elphaba ever. (meno male che si e' fatta praticamente due show a settimana per mesi, costringendo Ashleigh a stare sempre on. Ash si sara' sfrantecata i maroni, ma almeno abbiamo salvato un sacco di povere orecchie di innocenti theatregoers..)
Prima e ultima volta anche per la Nessa, che non faceva schifo, ma anche sti cazzi..Dimenticabile, se non fosse per la sedia che non e' partita durante l'incantesimo, che e' stato un bel momento WTF..
Oli, il nostro caro bambacione ci lascia con un ultimo riff ferma-show durante ALAYM, a livello di isteria estrogena collettiva. Ma a noi piace ricordarlo cosi', vestito da Triste Mietitore ad Hallowe'en, o con la maglietta di Superman a farsi le foto imbambolato ed espressivo come una sagoma cartonata..
Mega discorsone di Ernie alla fine (ci sono voluti tipo 20 minuti per dire addio ai 27 che mollavano..), con i mazzi di fiori giganti, una menzione speciale alla sua BFF Ashleigh (in vestito da gala mozzafiato), abbracci, baci e una parola gentile per tutti gli altri, e la voce che si spezza alla fine mentre dice grazie, grazie a tutti..Awww, Ernie..*tanti cuoricini anche ad Ernie, che rimane sola mentre gli altri se ne vanno..awww <3 <3 <3*
Insomma, sopravvissuti per miracolo (sara' anche che, tra noi 7, avremmo avuto si e no 6 ore di sonno cumulative, la notte prima..), breve e intensa stage door, Dianne andava come un razzo ma l'importante e' che ci abbia visto e abbia salutato il suo grande amore, Marky (lol). E' sempre tanto caruccia con noi, bless her..
E ora appuntamento al Criterion tra un mesetto, dove continuera' la loro storia avversa dal destino e dalle stelle.. *noi shippiamo Marky/Dianne..che verrebbe tipo Maianne? Darky? OMG DARKY VINCE*

LEGALLY BLONDE (28.03.10)
Avevamo prenotato il giorno prima che Sheridan ci confermasse le sue vacanze, quindi siamo andati allo show vagamente elettrizati dall'idea di vedere Amy come Elle.
La ragazza e' perfetta, forse troppo.
Si e' tenuta un po', forse perche' non voleva strafare..Buona voce, buona recitazione, personalita' pochina, guardaroba da rifare di sana pianta (non le stava bene praticamente niente, i vestiti sembravano copie dell'originale che un cosplayer farebbe a casa con la Singer, imbarazzante soprattutto il suit 'navy is my new pink', ora diventato nero con le righe rosse, e il vestito del processo, sformato e con una cravatta da uomo a mo' di cintura...), coreografie ogni tanto inventate dal niente (si sara' scordata cosa doveva fare? Ha voluto fare la creativa? Si e' messa a pensare alla lista della spesa e si e' distratta?)
Tutti gli altri in gran forma, tutti bumpati up di uno (Amy al posto di Sheridan, quindi Emma come Margot al posto di Amy, Lucy come Stenographer al posto di Emma, e YAY Jane al posto di Tamara come Delta Nu/Avvocato dell'accusa)
Piccolo disastro tecnico, Amy ha tenuto la bottiglia dello 'shampoo due in uno' a testa in giu', che giustamente si e' aperto colando GarnierLOrealdeParis su tutto il palco. Brava tontolona.
Abbiamo fatto una proper stagedoor, ma di quelle dei bei vecchi tempi, in cui sbrodi complimenti su tutti, loro ti danno la risposta standard, e chiedi la foto con fare imbarazzato come a dire 'sai, io di solito non faccio queste cose, scusa eh?'. *false come Giuda*
Manu ha placcato Amy per darle una iniezione di self confidence (a cui Amy ha risposto con un "Awww, thank you!') Valex e Marky hanno placcato Alex (e lui ha risposto, indovinate un po'? 'Awwww, thank you!'), in gruppo abbiamo agguantato Caroline, che ha protestato al grido 'OMG, struccata e con le buste della spesa NOOOOO!', noi: 'ma nooo, sei bellissima' e lei? 'Awwwww, thank you..' *rolleyes*, e per non farci mancare niente abbiamo fermato anche una a dir poco luminosa Susan (che ha squadrato Mark, ha sorriso dolce dolce e gli ha detto 'ti ho visto in seconda fila, che avevi il papillon!' LOL megagalattico, adesso Marky ci andra' anche a dormire, con quel papillon..) e, ATTENZIONE ATTENZIONE, anche Aoife! Che era una gnocca pazzesca. Ah, si. E lo dico senza vergogna. Una gnocca. Sisi. Cuoricini sparsi, a Aoife <3 <3 <3. Le abbiamo detto quanto ci piace e lei? All together now: 'Awwww, thank you!'
Io e Manu ci siamo fatti un 15 minuti di chiacchiera con Jane, che e' scozzese, friendly e praticamente la conosciamo da 4 anni senza averci mai parlato (era compagna di stanza di Fem, e' stata in tutti i tour in cui c'era Simon e in praticamente qualunque show abbiamo visto negli ultimi 3 anni..), e alla fine mi fa 'ma aggiungimi su Feisbuc!'
...ma se praticamente ti sto parlando adesso per la prima volta?
Arrivata a casa l'ho aggiunta e lei mi ha aggiunta back nel giro di TRENTA SECONDI. Loser. Lol.

OLIVER! (29.03.10)
E ora bambini, parliamo di Kerry a Oliver! (con il punto esclamativo, mi raccomando..)
Ci perdiamo il nuovo cast a Wicked, ma la balda Valex e la balda YB vanno al nostro posto come rappresentanza Scoobie, un altro gruppo occupa il territorio Sister Act (Marky deve salutare Katie), e BhMh va di nuovo a Blonde per coprire tutte le basi.
Sembra che stamo a gioca' a Risiko.
Come moccioso abbiamo avuto Gwion, che ha tentato di tutto per non parlare gallese, dio lo benedica..
Kerry. OH, KERRY.
Ci mancava solo Kerry con le tette strizzate nel corsetto, e adesso stiamo appppposto.
Non so che accento stesse tentando di fare, ma diciamo che non e' proprio la piu' chav dei chav, nemmeno se si impegna (mi domando che cazzo faceva a My Fair Lady..oibo'..)
Sono ancora freakata out dalla parrucca marroncina ricciolina, e' stato un sollievo vederla alla stage door con la bionda chioma fluente..<3 ammmore della casa, che bellina che e', anche con le braccia sporche di fuligine e il vestito lercio..
E' inutile che sto qui a dire quanto e' ciccia Kerry coi bambini in scena, quasi quasi li odio perche' se li e' stretti tutti al petto, maledetti mocciosi..
Ed e' inutile e superfluo che vi stia qui a dire che ha fatto una As Long As He Needs Me (piu' Reprise) da spianare i muri..
E poi, come dice Baz, muore.
Ma muore con una grazia deliziosa...*is biased and shamelessly so*
Quando la stage door sara' piu' calma e Kerry sara' di nuovo avvicinabile (perche' adesso come adesso avvicinarla significa rischiare la vita, con tutte le fangirl infoiate..) dovro' chiederle se si mette le ginocchiere, perche' l'amabile Bill Sykes la sbatte a faccia avanti due o tre volte, e non voglio che si rovini le belle rotuline, senno' poi st'estate come facciamo quando facciamo il mega picnic con il Queen Symphonic? (a proposito Valex, preparati gia' la valigia che si rifa' st'anno, ghghghghgh..)
Due file dietro di me, The Hairy King of Rock, Mr Brian May, che figurati se si perdere una prima di Kerry *rolleyes*, e meno male, perche' se ce l'avevamo seduto davanti non vedevamo un cazzo.
Alla fine standing ovation come un sol uomo quando e' uscita al curtain call, il Drury Lane era pieno di fangirls in ogni ordine di posti..Tanto, tanto amore per Kerry, ma proprio tanto.
Comunque pensavo non avrei retto, e invece mi sento di affermare che posso sopportare di rivederlo (anche perche' andiamo tipo tra 20 giorni..) senza mettermi a ronfare a meta' show..

WICKED (30.03.10)
E per finire in bellezza, Laura e le sue amiche, in camping forzato sui gradini del Victoria, ci offrono di prenderci due biglietti, e chi siamo noi per rifiutare?
Prima di tutto, OMG erano tipo due anni che non sedevo in prima fila centrarle, quasi al mio posto! Il 23, invece che il 24, ma siamo li. WHOA. Weird all'ennesima potenza. I sedili sono sempre stati cosi' scomodi? La chitarra elettrica si e' sempre sentita cosi' forte? C'e' sempre stato l'usher impalato a stage left?
Secondo di tutto: SANTAMADONNAVERGINE. ONAFUCKINGRAFTCHEPAGAIACONFORZA.
Tucker. TUCKER. TUCKERRRRR che cosa non ti farei..
E poi e' tanto pretty tutta verde...<3 (lasciamo perdere l'accento, secondo me e' meglio se rinuncia e fa direttamente Elphaba nordirlandese..XD sai che tajo?)
Il Gelphie is back, signori e signore, Louise Dearman e Rachel Tucker hanno una chemistry pazzesca, ma devo dire che Tucker ha chemistry anche con le scimmie volanti..
Si rimbalzano bene, si vede che si divertono a lavorare insieme, sono molto affiatate, soprattutto durante WITF (Tucker FTW) e Popular (lol a Louise che per scendere dal letto scavalca Rachel calpestandola come un elefante), ma anche For Good e' stata ottima, non me l'aspettavo soprattutto al loro secondo show ever.
Louise ha una voce della madonna. Spazza via qualunque Glinda mai apparsa a Londra finora. Perfetta, in controllo, va da belt a soprano senza il minimo sforzo e non so, a un modo di cantare diverso, preciso, pieno, come se si sentisse meglio, come se avessero pulito le casse degli altoparlanti. Cristallina. Il suo toss-toss ha una risata aggiunta alla fine che non aveva mai fatto nessuno, ma funziona bene per ora, soprattutto in Popular. Sperando che non strafaccia piu' in la' come tendono a fare tutti..
Ma torniamo a Tucker. (non LA Tucker, solo Tucker. Perche' she's THAT cool..)
Tucker ha persino un pochino di chemistry con Lewis, che e' un bambacione biondastro secco come un fuscello e la personalita' di un bradipo stanco (scommetto che con Lee fara' scintille, ghghgh, shippo gia' da ora..).
Rachel bacia benissimo, e ad ALAYM gli ha stampato un bacio vero e proprio, non quella solita pressione di labbra serrate che si (intra)vede di solito in quella nebbiolina gelata sul quel palco (maledetta macchina per il fumo, coff coff), lasciandogli la bocca e la punta del naso coperta di verde. Mega LOL.
Rachel + Cassie PrettyPretty. Oh, CASSANDRINA. Quanto sei pretty? E quanto sei fierce?
PrimoAtto!Nessa dolcissima e affiatata con la sorellona, tenerine tutte e due..SecondoAtto!Nessa incazzata e feroce come 'na iena a digiuno.
Madonna che bella.
Con quelle labbra quando dice le L, che mi distrae sempre un sacco, e quella voce purissima che le esce senza sforzo alcuno..*happysigh*
Rachel + Dr Dillamond = AMO. Dillamond e' diverso da tutti gli altri Dillamond, lo fa serio e paterno e senza difetti di pronuncia (tranne per la Ga Di Galinda, ovviamente..), e mentre spiega in classe Tucker lo guarda rapita e con un megasorriso stampato in faccia mentre prende appunti.
Tucker primo atto e' adorabile all'ennesima potenza, si tormenta le mani, guarda tutti dritto negli occhi senza paura e sorride timida quando cominciano a craccare il suo guscio esterno, recita a mille ogni singolo minuto..AMO AMO AMO.
Tucker secondo atto e' piu' tormentata che arrabbiata. E' sola, e' stanca, e' triste.
La sua NGD e' disperata, dritta dallo stomaco. LOL, ha detto alla stage door che era rimasta senza fiato e per questo ha tipo barcollato ad un certo punto, ma era talmente ben costruito che sembrava totalmente pianificato. E non perde mai il controllo della voce, nonostante la nota finale, i fari sparati in faccia, e tutti che guardano solo te perche' durante NGD c'e' solo Elphaba sul palco, non e' che li puoi distrarre, e se sai che ti sta per finire il fiato..minchia.
Dev'essere terrorizzante. Eppure? Dritta come un treno, solida e costante, nota finale da urlo e pubblico in delirio.
Cosi' si fa, Alexia del caxxo. Prendi appunti, che poi ti interrogo.
La Morrible e' allampanata, sembra un po' un corvo, anche lei con la sua bella parrucca nuova, ed e' abbastanza scary...
Mia piccola ovazione personale: nuove parrucche, eeeeeeee!!! Riccioli perfetti per Glinda, scintillanti onde corvine per Elphie, persino Mamma Thropp ha una perfetta parrucca rosso fuoco perfettamente in ordine.
Lo so, e' una cazzata e dureranno poco, ma mi esalto. E' una nuova era per Wicked, in tutti i sensi, anche al reparto Wigs. Yay.

E mentre eravamo li' a cazzeggiare durante l'intervallo, l'orchestra improvvisava riff rock e noi ce la scialavamo alla grande sorridendo beate, Manu torna dal bagno e mi dice che c'e' Twinnie Lee, l'ha incrociata al bagno e si sono salutate. E infatti, eccola, coi capelli solito Rosso Improbabile, e una maglietta a righine molto nautica, si aggira parlando al telefono. OMG. Non la vedevo da Maggio..

E quindi si, sono troppo su di giri perche' ho riavuto indietro il mio Wicked. Quasi mi commuovo.
E tutte le fangirls che adesso odieranno questo cast?
Haters to the left, thank you very much. Sparite dall'Apollo Vic e non tornare mai piu', perche' se c'e' un dio Alexia non verra' castata mai piu' in niente e questo show rimarra' intonso il piu' a lungo possibile.

Peccato solo che la Scoobie week sia gia' finita. Tutti a casa, e noi sole solette, a tornare all'ingrato lavoro. Stanotte ho dormito 3 ore. Non mangio niente da ieri sera, a parte due caffe'. Con la testa ho un ritornello che fa 'devoandareaWicked, devoandareaBlonde, OMGKerryKerryKerry' e non riesco a spegnermi, sto gia' col pensiero alla prossima Scoobievacanza, alla prossima theatre week, alla prossima..

Oddio, abbattetemi.

          US blacklists China bank, revving up pressure over North Korea   
WASHINGTON — The United States has blacklisted a small Chinese bank accused of illicit dealings with North Korea, escalating the pressure on Beijing to rein in its wayward ally amid increased signs of frustration among President Donald Trump and his top advisers with China's diplomatic efforts.

The Treasury Department on Thursday declared the Bank of Dandong a "primary money-laundering concern," proposing to sever it entirely from the U.S. financial system, pending a 60-day review period. Although Trump's treasury secretary said the move didn't target China, it comes a week after the president lamented that China's promise to help with North Korea "has not worked out."

Calls to Bank of Dandong rang unanswered on Friday. Beijing, however, criticized Washington's action, saying that unilateral sanctions outside the U.N. Security Council were inappropriate.

"We also firmly oppose any individual country to exercise long-arm jurisdiction under its own domestic law," said Lu Kang, spokesman for China's foreign ministry.

Lu added that Beijing will investigate possible wrongdoings by Chinese individuals and entities under Chinese laws.

Trump had been leaning on President Xi Jinping to help stop the North's development of nuclear weapons before they can threaten the U.S. homeland. A main focus of the coordination has been getting China to fully enforce international sanctions intended to starve North Korea of revenue for its nuclear and missile programs.

The U.S. action is likely to anger China, which handles about 90 percent of North Korea's external trade, and whose banks and companies are said to provide Pyongyang access to the U.S.-dominated international financial system.

The sanctions bar Americans from doing business with Bank of Dandong, which is based in a northeastern Chinese city on the North Korean border that serves as a gateway for trade with the isolated nation. The U.S. also slapped sanctions Thursday on a Chinese shipping company and two Chinese people that it said have facilitated illegal activities by North Korea.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said the U.S. still wants to work with Beijing on combating the North Korean threat.

"We are in no way targeting China with these actions," Mnuchin told a White House news briefing.

The punitive steps were presaged by a tweet from Trump last week reflecting dissatisfaction with Beijing's efforts.

"While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out. At least I know China tried!" Trump tweeted on June 20.

The Trump administration may be struggling to maintain international pressure on Pyongyang.

The president was to meet for the first time Thursday with South Korea's new leader, President Moon Jae-in, who has long advocated outreach to North Korea. His predecessor had staunchly backed Trump's harder line.

Mnuchin said the Bank of Dandong has facilitated millions of dollars of transactions for companies involved in North Korea's weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs.

Anthony Ruggiero, a sanctions expert and former Treasury Department official, described it as a small Chinese bank "sitting at the heart" of trade between North Korea and China.

"This is a strong message to Chinese leaders that the Trump administration will act against North Korea's sanctions evasion in China," he said.

The other targeted Chinese entities are:

—Dalian Global Unity Shipping Co., which Treasury accused of transporting 700,000 tons of freight annually, including coal and steel products, between China and North Korea. It cited a U.N. expert panel as saying the company has violated a ban on trade in luxury goods with the North.

—Chinese national Sun Wei, said to have been running a cover company for North Korea's Foreign Trade Bank, which is already subject to U.S. sanctions.

—Chinese national Li Hong Ri, said to have established several front companies that end up benefiting Koryo Bank, a U.S.-sanctioned conduct for financial transactions on behalf of North Korea.

          Un arquitecto italiano diseña la primera ciudad-bosque de China   
El proyecto residencial diseñado por Stefano Boeri combina eficiencia energética y una reducción efectiva del aire contaminado
          TEILLIER RECORDANDO A DE ROKHA   
En un día como hoy pero de 1968, murió Pablo de Rokha. En este mes, donde mañana se conmemoran los 40 años del tan mentado quiebre de la democracia, lo recuerdo a través de una experiencia lautarina relatada por otro poeta significativo: Jorge Teillier.
--------------------------------------------------------------

Era el tiempo de las vacaciones y solíamos caminar con mi padre y mi hermano Iván hasta el puente Cautín y luego cumplir el rito de jugar brisca y tomar unas cervezas en el Club Conservador o donde el Pavo Arévalo.
Ahora bien, en medio del paseo siento un brusco rechinar de frenos e inesperadamente surge de un auto Pablo de Rokha, diciéndome: "Amigo Teillier, vengo desde Los Ángeles con unas ganas horribles de comerme unas patitas de vaca". Hechas las presentaciones del caso, mi padre me llamó aparte: "donde doña Margarita llegaron patitas, pero no creo que sea un lugar para llevar a un poeta”. “Para él no hay otro mejor –respondí–. Ya verás”. Y partimos.
Doña Margarita era dueña de una frutería en Cuyanquén, barrio de la bronca lautarina, al lado de la línea férrea y era famosa por su buena mano. Mientras sus hijos vendían frutas y verduras, ella atendía en la trastienda a los gourmands del pueblo, desde el gobernador al alcalde y al sargento de Carabineros encargado de controlar el expendio clandestino de comidas y bebidas.
Doña Margarita siempre nos acogía con una gentileza que se acrecentó cuando le informamos que estaba en presencia de una de las glorias de las letras chilenas y de su yerno, gran pintor argentino. No sólo nos ofreció patitas, sino también pancoras y –en secreto– un salmón recién pescado (estábamos en época de veda), y chicha fuerte de manzana de don Nicolás Van de Moler, la mejor de la región.
“Se ve en el horizonte”, exclamó con su mejor vozarrón don Pablo, y pidió, a modo de aperitivo, una damajuana de chicha junto a una pichanga “para preparar el ingreso a conversar”. La pichanga (a la cual llamaba también “causeo criaturero”) contó con su aprobación. Traía toda clase de cecinas de un cerdo “sureño y oceánico” preparado en casa, queso de cabra, aceitunas de Azapa, cebollas escabechadas en vinagre y ají cacho de cabra. La dueña de casa nos sirvió una fuente para seis personas, pero don Pablo, con su servilleta anudada al cuello a la manera de los viejos demócratas, se expropió para él solo la fuente. Doña Margarita, sin decir palabra, nos trajo la misma cantidad a cada uno. En la tácita competencia me di por vencido tras comer enormes cantidades de pancoras, sin poder llegar hasta el salmón al horno. Todo esto era acompañado por un pipeño que corría “más ligero que un alguacil”, al decir del Arcipreste. Recuerdo que el poeta lautarino Gabriel Barra recitó unos versos del tabernario Serguei Esenín con gran alegría de don Pablo que, asimismo, acompañó con tamboreo y huifa unas cuecas chilota cantadas por el profesor Mancilla, bailadas por doña Margarita con el notario del pueblo León Ocqueteaux, hasta que el paso del tren de las cuatro nos indicó que era hora de terminar la reunión…


En la mañana siguiente acompañé a don Pablo a vender su libro Idioma del mundo por la localidad. Lo vi practicar el trueque. Por un volumen autografiado recibía un quintal de harina, un saco de papas o enormes ristras de ajo que embarcaba a la capital, a su familia.
El poeta estaba invitado a almorzar a casa de mis padres. Ante el espanto de mi madre, decreté que debía haber un almuerzo de acuerdo a los cánones rokhianos. El aperitivo consistió en una chupilca con harina tostada recién hecha, la cual el vate acompañó –por cuenta propia– con dos cebollas crudas de nuestra huerta que devoró como pomelos. Vino después un plato de pancutras fiambres preparadas la noche anterior (“componedoras de cuerpo”) y un ganso con ajo y arvejitas nuevas. De postre, una tajada de sandía para cada comensal, y una entera para don Pablo. La comida había sido preparada en la cocina económica, y con fragante leña de ulmo, lo que contó con la entusiasta aprobación del poeta.
Luego, pidió permiso para dormir siesta, bajo la vieja parra de la casa, eso sí, en un sillón. Nos explicó que uno de los secretos de su buena salud era el de dormir sentado.

Mientras me incitaba a seguir comiendo prietas y a tomar vino áspero de Cauquenes, Maule, él tomaba agua mineral y probaba apenas un caldo de verduras. Estaba herido de muerte. Y recordé uno de sus versos: “retorne solo a la provincia despavorida y funeral / cómase un caldillo de papas, que es lo más triste que existe”. Poco tiempo después recurría, como Joaquín Edwards Bello, al último remedio: un tiro de Smith & Wesson, tras cumplir, entre otras grandes tareas, la de haberse comido y bebido a Chile entero.

          Oil rises for seventh session, U.S. stocks rebound   

By Dion Rabouin and Herbert Lash

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil rose for a seventh straight session on Friday on a declining U.S. rig count and stronger demand data from China, while U.S. equities rebounded and were set to end a volatile week on an up-beat, helped by a double-digit jump in Nike shares.

The dollar recovered slightly but hawkish signals this week from the European Central Bank, Bank of England and Bank of Canada kept the greenback on track for its biggest quarterly decline against a basket of currencies in nearly seven years.

Among other sharp contrasts, the euro rose 7 percent in its best quarter since 2010, while the benchmark S&P 500 stock index was set to post its best first half of the year since 2013 and gold notched its first monthly loss this year.

U.S. drillers cut their rig count for the first time since January, energy services company Baker Hughes [RIG/U] said, while Chinese factories boosted output at their fastest pace in three months.

The strong data from China "certainly gives you hope that demand is growing globally," said Rob Haworth, senior investment strategist at U.S. Bank Wealth Management.

U.S. crude futures settled up $1.11 at $46.04 a barrel, the first close above $46 in two weeks. Benchmark Brent crude futures rose 50 cents to settle at $47.92 a barrel.

Crude had slumped to a 10-month low last week as rising output revived concerns about global oil glut.

A weaker greenback has made dollar-denominated crude less expensive for purchasers using other currencies.

Ramped-up expectations for tighter monetary policy from major central banks and scepticism the Federal Reserve would be able to raise interest rates again this year has made the dollar less attractive.

The dollar index was last up 0.05 percent at 95.674, while the euro was down 0.17 percent against the dollar at $1.1420.

The euro touched its strongest in nearly 14 months on Thursday, at $1.1445, while the dollar index touched a roughly nine-month low of 95.470 early Friday.

Nike shares rose 10.5 percent after the world's largest footwear maker reported a quarterly profit that topped estimates and said it would launch a pilot online sales programme with Amazon.com .

Nike shares were the biggest boost to both the Dow industrials and the S&P 500.

The S&P technology index <.SPLRCT> climbed 0.34 percent but was still on track to post its first monthly loss of the year.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average <.DJI> rose 99.25 points, or 0.47 percent, to 21,386.28. The S&P 500 <.SPX> gained 9.95 points, or 0.41 percent, to 2,429.65 and the Nasdaq Composite <.IXIC> added 14.92 points, or 0.24 percent, to 6,159.27.

In Europe, shares closed lower and ended June with their biggest monthly loss in a year as worries over tighter monetary conditions soured the mood.

The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index <.FTEU3> of leading shares lost 0.44 percent while MSCI's gauge of stocks across the globe <.MIWD00000PUS> rose 0.01 percent, lifted by Wall Street.

U.S. Treasury yields rose after inflation data was not seen as weak enough to delay the Fed’s expected path on rate hikes.

Benchmark 10-year notes fell 10/32 in price to yield 2.3037 percent, a six-week high.

By Nichola Saminather

SINGAPORE, June 30 (Reuters) - The dollar extended itslosses on Friday as major central banks signalled that the eraof cheap money was coming to an end in a boon to sterling, theeuro and the Canadian dollar, while Asian shares were hit bydismal performances of European and U.S. markets.

European markets were set to open a little lower, withfinancial spreadbetter LCG expecting Britain's FTSE 100,Germany's DAX and France's CAC 40 to all startthe day down 0.1 percent. All three lost between 0.5 percentand 1.9 percent on Thursday.

But global stock market indexes are set for more gains bythe end of this year, driven by an economic revival in Europeand bright prospects for much of Asia, a Reuters poll of around300 financial professionals showed.

The dollar index fell 0.1 percent to 95.549, poisedfor a 1.8 percent slide this week, having fallen in all sessionsbut one. It is down 1.4 percent for the month, and 4.8 percentfor the quarter.

The Korean won weakened against the dollar after the countryreported industrial production rose by 0.2 percent in May from amonth earlier, missing expectations for growth of 1.5 percent.That followed a 2.2 percent decline in April

The dollar was up 0.1 percent at 1,142.5 won.

But the greenback remained lower against other majorcurrencies. Adding to the dollar's weakness against the yen wasdata showing Japanese core consumer prices rose 0.4 percent inMay from a year earlier in its fifth straight month of gains,although inflation remains well below the central bank's 2percent target.

The dollar fell 0.25 percent to 111.95 yen, after losing 0.2percent on Thursday. It was heading for a 1.2 percent gain forthe month, but is down 4.2 percent this year.

Bank of England Governor Mark Carney surprised many onWednesday by conceding a rate hike was likely to be needed asthe economy came closer to running at full capacity.

Sterling was 0.1 percent higher on Friday at$1.3017, adding to Thursday's 0.6 percent gain.

Two top policymakers at the Bank of Canada also suggestedthey might tighten monetary policy there as early as July.

The dollar slipped 0.15 percent to C$1.2984,extending Thursday's 0.26 percent loss.

Despite comments by sources that European Central BankPresident Mario Draghi had intended to signal tolerance for aperiod of weaker inflation, not an imminent policy tightening,the euro on Friday revisited the 13-month high of $1.1445 hit onThursday.

The euro remained close to that level and was at$1.1439 on Friday, retaining most of Thursday's 0.6 percentgain.

"Obviously there's a shift afoot. It really seems thatthere's some coordinated effort going on out here among the G10central banks," said Stephen Innes, head of trading inAsia-Pacific for OANDA in Singapore, referring to the series ofhawkish-sounding comments on monetary policy.

In stocks, the MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific sharesoutside Japan fell 0.7 percent, after hitting atwo-year high on Thursday. It is up 5.3 percent for the quarterand has risen 18.3 percent this year.

The negative sentiment infected Chinese shares despitesurveys showing activity in the country's manufacturing andservices sector accelerated in June from the previous month.Manufacturers appeared to enjoy strong external demand, as neworders and production rose at a solid pace.

The CSI 300 index fell 0.3 percent, while theShanghai Composite slipped 0.1 percent.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng slid 0.9 percent.

Japan's Nikkei tumbled 1.2 percent, shrinking itsmonthly gain to 1.7 percent. It is up 4.5 percent this year.

Overnight, the tech-heavy Nasdaq led declines onWall Street with a 1.4 percent loss. The Nasdaq is poised topost a 0.9 percent loss for the month, but is still up 14percent this year.

The drop in tech stocks overnight was due to a rotation intobank shares, which have lagged this year, after the biggest U.S.banks revealed buyback and dividend plans that beat analysts'expectations after the Fed approved their capital proposals inits annual stress test program.

The S&P financials index rose as much as 2 percentovernight, while the S&P technology index fell as muchas 2.7 percent.

In commodities, oil prices continued their recovery thisweek on a decline in weekly U.S. crude production.

U.S. crude added 0.7 percent to $45.15 a barrel inits seventh straight session of gains, bringing its weeklyincrease to 5.05 percent, and narrowing its quarterly loss to10.75 percent.

Global benchmark Brent gained 0.6 percent to $47.67a barrel, poised to post a 9.8 percent for the quarter.

The dollar's weakness this year has been a boon for gold,which is up 8.25 percent in the same period. It was up 0.1percent at $1,246.46 an ounce on Friday.

          EM ASIA FX-Chinese yuan on track for best quarter since 2008; won touches 11-week low   

(Adds text, updates prices) By Christina Martin June 30 (Reuters) - China's yuan extended gainsfor a fourth straight session on Friday and was headed for itsbest quarter since June 2008, helped by a weaker dollar andbetter-than-expected manufacturing data. The People's Bank of China set the yuan midpointat 6.7744 per dollar prior to market opening, its strongestlevel since November 7, 2016. The strength in the official guidance reflected weakness inthe dollar, which sank to a near nine-month low against a basketof currencies in the overseas market. The dollar was bogged down by growing expectations of morehawkish monetary policies in Europe and Canada and doubts aboutanother U.S. interest rate increase this year. The yuan was up about 1 percent for the week, set for itsbest week since July 2005, and gained 1.7 percent against thedollar for the quarter. China's manufacturing sector expanded at its quickest pacein three months in June, buoyed by strong production and neworders, reassuring news for authorities trying to strike abalance between de-leveraging and keeping the economy on an evenkeel. The official manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI)was at 51.7 in June, the eleventh straight month of expansion,and up from 51.2 in May, a monthly survey by the National Bureauof Statistics showed on Friday. Separately, official data showed that China recorded asurplus in its capital and financial account in the firstquarter, indicating net capital inflows as policymakerstightened supervision of outflows. In other Asian currencies, the Malaysian ringgitgained 0.1 percent and the Philippine peso snappedthree straight days of losses. "The Asian net portfolio flow environment remains generallysupportive except for the Indian rupee, where inflow momentumcontinues to moderate," OCBC said in a note. The Indian rupee was set for its fourth straightday of declines, losing as much as 0.2 percent to hit a two-weeklow. KOREAN WON South Korea's won traded down as much as 0.5percent on Friday, its lowest level in over 11 weeks, asinvestors backed away from emerging markets in the wake of abroad decline in global stock markets. South Korean bond sales by Franklin Templeton raisedconcerns over potential capital outflows, putting furtherpressure on the won. U.S. President Donald Trump will press South KoreanPresident Moon Jae-in to solve trade differences over cars andsteel in meetings in Washington focusing on the nuclear threatfrom North Korea. South Korean shares edged down after a big rebound theprevious day, with the Korea Composite Stock Price Index (KOSPI) down 0.5 percent at 2,384.57 points. The won has fallen about 2.1 percent this quarter. SINGAPORE DOLLAR The Singapore dollar rose for a fourth consecutiveday on Friday, up as much as 0.2 percent, touching it highest inmore two weeks. Singapore's total bank lending in May rose 0.32 percent fromApril as lending to general commerce increased, central bankdata showed on Friday.

          China posts Q1 capital and financial account surplus - FX regulator   

BEIJING (Reuters) - China recorded a surplus in its capital and financial account in the first quarter, the foreign exchange regulator said on Thursday, indicating net capital inflows as policymakers tightened supervision of outflows.

For the quarter, China posted a $39.3 billion surplus in its capital and financial account, versus a preliminary deficit of $19 billion, data from the Sate Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) showed.

"In the first quarter, domestic investors' overseas investment became rational and foreign investors continued to increase investment in China," SAFE said in an accompanying statement.

China also recorded a final current account surplus of $18.4 billion in the first three months of this year. It had reported a preliminary surplus of $19 billion.

The current account surplus stayed in a reasonable range and cross-border capital flows improved significantly in the first quarter, SAFE said.

The forex regulator said earlier this month that cross-border capital flows are stabilising and continued the good momentum from May.

          Oil up for seventh day but first-half drop biggest since 1998   

By Julia Simon

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil climbed on Friday for a seventh straight session as a decrease in the U.S. rig count and stronger demand data from China lifted depressed prices that still finished the first half with the biggest decline for that period since 1998.

U.S. drillers decreased their number of rigs for the first time since January, according to energy services company Baker Hughes. [RIG/U] The rig count had risen for the previous 23 weeks.

Earlier, Chinese data showed factories grew at the quickest pace in three months. Rob Haworth, senior investment strategist at U.S. Bank Wealth Management, said the Chinese data "certainly gives you hope that demand is growing globally."

U.S. crude futures settled up $1.11, or around 2.5 percent, to $46.04 a barrel. Benchmark Brent crude futures settled up 50 cents at $47.92 a barrel.

Both benchmarks ended the first half of 2017 with drops of more than 14 percent since Dec. 30, 2016, the largest drop since Brent and U.S. crude fell about 19 percent in the first half of 1998.

Oil prices have generally increased in first half of most years.

Trading volume was low ahead of the U.S. Independence Day holiday weekend. Last week, crude hit a 10-month low as rises in output revived concerns about global oversupply.

The U.S. dollar <.DXY> fell, making dollar-denominated crude oil less expensive for investors using other currencies.

The global crude glut has knocked 16 percent off Brent crude so far this year, even though the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and other major producers have agreed to cut production about 1.8 million barrels per day (bpd).

"There’s a longer term question of where are prices going to be when the market rebalances," said Haworth.

Money managers cut their net long U.S. crude futures and options positions in the week to June 27 to the lowest since late September, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) said on Friday.

The market has also seen traders building short positions to the highest levels since mid-August.

Reuters' monthly oil price poll showed analysts have reduced their price forecasts again, with 2017 average Brent and WTI prices lowered by more than $2 since last month. [OILPOLL]

Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts cut their forecast for average 2017 Brent crude prices to $50 a barrel from $54 and WTI to $47 from $52. They cited rising output from Libya, Nigeria and U.S. shale fields, coupled with weaker demand growth.

While U.S. drillers cut two oil rigs in the week to June 30, the total rig count of 756 is still more than double the count the same week a year ago, Baker Hughes said on Friday.

          candra: Oxycise для начинающих.   

Это цитата сообщения Ирцейс Оригинальное сообщение

Среди дыхательных гимнастик, в последнее время ставших одним из самых популярных методов снижения веса, все большую известность приобретает Оксисайз (Oxycise).
3720816_oksisaiz3 (640x425, 27Kb)
Это название – синтез английских слов oxygen (кислород) и exercise (упражнение), то есть гимнастика представляет собой комплекс физических упражнений и особой техники дыхания.

Ее распространение в России в основном связано с именем фитнес-инструктора Марины Корпан. Она инициатор продвижения в нашей стране дыхательных методик похудения – в первую очередь потому, что они помогли расстаться с лишним весом именно ей.
Марина успешно адаптировала для российских женщин два американских ноу-хау – гимнастики бодифлекс и оксисайз – и написала о них несколько книг.
Она продолжает совершенствовать эти методики, параллельно пропагандируя здоровый образ жизни с их применением на телевидении, в печатных СМИ, а также в Интернете.

Методика Оксисайз основана на сочетании движений и правильного дыхания, предназначена для всех желающих сбросить лишние килограммы, не зависимо от степени физической натренированности

3720816_11 (34x33, 0Kb)Особенности методики Oxycise

В отличие от бодифлекса оксисайз имеет следующие отличительные особенности:

  • занятия можно проводить в любое удобное время, в том числе вечером и после приема пищи;
  • тренировка проводиться без использования особых приспособлений и занимает около 15 – 20 минут в день;
  • при ежедневных занятиях заметные результаты появляются уже через 2 недели;
  • отсутствует потребность издавать особые звуки;
  • физическая нагрузка сочетается с некоторыми изменениями в питании, кушать следует не реже 4-х раз в день, сладкое, жирное и жареное под запретом, предпочтение отдается блюдам, богатым растительной клетчаткой (овощам, фруктам, зелени, злаковым), суточная норма калорий составляет от 1500 до 1700 ккал.

При правильном подходе дыхательная гимнастика Оксисайз  убирает жировые отложения и лишние сантиметры в проблемных зонах, позволяя моделировать фигуру. Такой эффект достигается тем, кислород, являющийся натуральным сжигателем липидной прослойки, поступает в нужное место, под воздействием напряжения соответствующих групп мышц.
Вступая в химическую реакцию с углеродной составляющей жиров, образует соединения, которые легко удаляются из организма.

В результате занятий происходят следующие положительные изменения:

  • Быстрое избавление от лишних килограммов, постепенная нормализация индекса массы тела.
  • Формирование красивой фигуры, с уменьшением объемов в нужных местах, подтягиванием контуров, возвращение коже былой эластичности, исчезновение целлюлита.
  • Улучшение настроения, повышение работоспособности и устойчивости к стрессовым ситуациям, исчезновение головных болей.
  • Повышение полового влечения и способности получать удовлетворение. Нормализация артериального давления и общего тонуса организма.

3720816_oksisaiz2 (640x423, 28Kb)

Чтобы достичь всех перечисленных результатов, нужно освоить технику дыхания: именно благодаря особому способу вдоха и выдоха запускается механизм похудения. Привычное для каждой женщины, грудное дыхание необходимо заменить диафрагмальным, т.к. грудной тип дыхания приводит к кислородному голоданию и сопровождающим его симптомам вялости, хронической усталости, выраженной апатии, постоянным головным болям и раздражительности.

Чтобы ничего не мешало тренироваться, выберите одежду, не сковывающую движения.

Ладонь правой руки нужно положить на грудную клетку, а левой на брюшину. Вдыхать следует животом, выдыхать очень медленно, до тех пор, пока ладонь не будет максимально близко приближена к позвоночному столбу.

Освоив технику дыхания и научившись пользоваться ею, можно приступать к выполнению упражнений для начинающих, не забывая про улыбку и хорошее настроение

Для начала этого базового комплекса будет достаточно. Главное, чтобы эти упражнения накладывались на диафрагмальное дыхание. Ведь, именно, благодаря ему, происходит волшебное преображение не только фигуры, но и самочувствия.

Техника дыхания Oxycise

3720816_oksisaiz1 (640x385, 21Kb)

Этот урок будет идеален для тех, кто еще ничего не слышал о методике оксисайз, но хотел бы снизить свой вес. Из него конкретный человек может узнать о преимуществах этой гимнастики и определить, подойдет ли она ему или нет.

В ходе следующего видео по оксисайзу тренер знакомит вас с основами дыхания нон-стоп. Последовательно демонстрируются различные упражнения, входящие в комплекс нон-стоп.

3720816_oksisaiz (640x385, 25Kb)

Фактически это индивидуальная видеотренировка под руководством инструктора Марины Корпан, в самом начале которой тренер четко ставит цель и предлагает ей следовать. Большими достоинствами этого занятия является последовательность и наглядность, а также предупреждение возможных ошибок.

          Russia's Rosneft set for global gas tussle with Gazprom   

By Vladimir Soldatkin and Olesya Astakhova

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's Rosneft, the world's top listed oil producer, wants to supply gas in parts of Europe where Gazprom is not present - or Moscow risks losing the market to U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG), a Rosneft executive said.

Gazprom, the leading global gas producer, enjoys monopoly rights on gas pipeline exports. It has lost its exclusive rights to ship seaborne LNG overseas to Rosneft and Novatek, Russia's largest non-state gas producer.

Rosneft, headed by Igor Sechin, an ally of President Vladimir Putin, has long been vying for pipeline gas exports as it strives to grow globally. It now wants permission to export to the parts of Europe in which Gazprom does not operate.

The Russian producer has a memorandum with BP, which owns a 19.75 stake in the Russian company, to trade up to 20 billion cubic metres (bcm) of gas annually in Europe.

Rosneft vice president Vlada Rusakova, a former Gazprom executive, said the company wants to conduct "an experiment" in supplying gas to new markets "in coordination" with Gazprom.

"We are not counting on a total lifting of export restrictions. This would be harmful for Gazprom, especially against the background of a difficult financial and economic situation at the company," she said in emailed comments.

She added that as part of the "experiment", Rosneft could supply gas to markets where Gazprom is not present and into which U.S. LNG could be imported. Rusakova did not identify any such European countries.

"Of course, this should be done in close coordination with Gazprom, in order to avoid competition between Russian gas suppliers."

Gazprom targets $32-34 billion in revenues from exporting more than 180 bcm to Europe and Turkey this year. Rosneft produced almost 70 bcm of gas last year, earning 208 billion roubles ($3.5 billion) in revenues from gas sales at home.

NEW MARKETS

Rosneft, like Novatek, is winning some of Gazprom's clients at home thanks to a more flexible gas pricing policy. But unlike Novatek or Gazprom, Rosneft plans to have an LNG plant only in Russia, as it eyes Russia's far east and Asian markets.

The company wants to export gas to China, where Gazprom plans to start shipping gas in 2019-2021 via the Power of Siberia pipeline, currently under construction.

It also wants access to China's domestic gas market and end-users via swap deals.

"There are significant gas resources in Russia's east, while no infrastructure has been built. And that's why we are interested in gaining access to the future Power of Siberia pipeline," Rusakova said.

Rosneft plans to produce 100 bcm of gas per year by 2020 and become the world's third-largest producer of natural gas sometime later, thanks to a number of international projects.

Last year, Rosneft agreed to buy a stake of up to 35 percent in Egypt's Zohr offshore gas field from Italy's Eni. The Russian company also plans to expand in gas projects elsewhere, including Mozambique and Venezuela.

Rusakova said Rosneft and Venezuelan state company PDVSA may consider building an LNG plant in Venezuela.

          Asian imports of Iranian oil slow for first time since Jan 2016   

* Asia imports 1.60 mln bpd of Iran oil in May, down 1.7 pctyr/yr * Japan imports tumble 47.8 pct yr/yr due in part toturnaround * Jan-May Asia imports up 30.5 pct yr/yr By Osamu Tsukimori TOKYO, June 30 (Reuters) - Imports of Iranian crude by itsfour main buyers in Asia fell 2 percent in May from a year ago,marking the first year-on-year decline since January 2016, whenWestern sanctions were lifted leading to a spike in Tehran'sexports. Iran's top four Asian buyers - China, India, South Korea andJapan - imported 1.60 million barrels per day (bpd) last month,government and ship-tracking data showed. Iran was exempted from the Organization of the PetroleumExporting Countries agreement to reduce output by 1.2 millionbpd that began this year, a victory for Tehran which has arguedit needs to regain the market share it lost under Westernsanctions over its disputed nuclear programme. Overall Iranian oil output was hovering at more than 3.9million bpd and is expected to reach 4 million bpd by March2018, Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh said this month. Iran's oil exports to the West surged in May to theirhighest level since sanctions were lifted, a source familiarwith Iranian oil exports said. Looking ahead, Iran's crude oil exports in July are set tofall 7 percent from this month's three-month high, mainly due toa decline in exports to Europe, a person with knowledge of theMiddle Eastern country's tanker loading schedule said. Japan's trade ministry on Friday released official datashowing its Iranian imports tumbled by nearly half, reflectinglower demand because of the refinery maintenance season.

          LNG price row between India, U.S. crimps Trump's export aims   
NEW DELHI/NEW YORK/LONDON  - India's biggest importer of U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) is trying to re-negotiate prices with the U.S. seller, sources said, undermining plans by U.S. President Donald Trump to export more gas to the fast-growing Asian nation.

At a joint news conference with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the White House this week, Trump said the United States looked forward to exporting more energy, including new major long-term contracts to purchase American natural gas.

The effort is part of Trump's policy of seeking to assert power abroad through a boost in natural gas, coal and petroleum exports. He said on Thursday that the "golden era" of the U.S. energy business was now underway.

But any new LNG agreements with India will depend on how GAIL and Cheniere of the United States deal with a long-term supply contract signed in 2011 for an estimated $22 billion.

India's GAIL has deals to buy 5.8 million tonnes of U.S. LNG per annum for 20 years, mostly with Cheniere, but is now asking to re-negotiate the price. A commissioning cargo was sent last year, but supplies in earnest will only likely start in 2018.

Two sources at state-run GAIL said they were trying to re-negotiate the contract.

"At current U.S. prices, the landed cost of the LNG (in India) is not very attractive," said one of the sources on condition of anonymity, as he was not cleared to speak to media. Neither source gave any details on what price GAIL was seeking.

"We are trying a mix of options on pricing, and re-negotiating is one of them," the source said. "My perception is that the talks with Cheniere in this regard are not very likely to succeed."

Officially, GAIL has declined comment on the row.

Cheniere, currently the only U.S. company exporting LNG, said it was not open to a lower price.

"Our customers expect us to deliver on our commitments, and we expect the same. This is a signed long-term contract that we believe will provide long-term value and we expect the contract to be adhered to," said Eben Burnham-Snyder, a spokesman at Cheniere.

The contract price is calculated on a formula based on U.S. spot prices for natural gas, and currently costs India $8.50 per million British thermal units (mmBtu).

Traders said that Cheniere would struggle to send cargoes at a lower price.

GAIL UNDER PRESSURE

Asian spot LNG prices, which exclude all extra costs like shipping, have fallen by more than 40 percent this year to $5.40 per mmBtu amid ballooning oversupply as production from Australia and the United States rises.

R.K. Garg, head of finance at Petronet LNG , India's biggest gas importer, told Reuters that at current oil prices, long-term gas contracts were being offered at $6-7 per mmBtu.

Mangesh Patankar, head of business development at energy consultancy Galway Group, said that GAIL was trying for lower prices because the company was struggling to sell contracted U.S. LNG on to end-users in India, who are demanding cheaper gas from GAIL themselves.

   "A lot of the (LNG) buyers are doing that right now. With the ramp up in Australia and U.S. volumes, and demand being not that active in the end-user market, a lot of the buyers have had to do that," he said.

Other LNG buyers, including top importer Japan, are also pressing for better terms.

Washington has been using LNG as a diplomatic and political tool. Although sales are a commercial matter, Washington has been laying foundations for contracts with key buyers, including China.

Trump has made LNG exports a central part of his trade policy, aimed at reviving industry and creating jobs. Asian markets account for about 70 percent of global LNG shipments, and India is one of the fastest-growing importers.

Trump will be visiting Poland next week and plans to promote U.S. LNG exports at a meeting in Warsaw with a dozen leaders from central and eastern Europe.



          Saber-rattling: Naval drills, sanctions and Taiwan weapon sales revive US tensions with China   
The US and Australian navies kicked off their biggest-ever joint amphibious drills, described as a message to friends and foes alike, as Washington sanctioned two Chinese businessmen and a bank over North Korea and announced a sale of weapons to Taiwan. On Thursday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced sanctions against China's Bank of Dandong, Dalian Global Unity Shipping Co, and two Chinese business executives the US accuses of running front companies on behalf of North Korea. Washington also announced a $1.4 billion deal to sell weapons to Taiwan, a Chinese island ruled as a de facto independent country by the nationalist government ousted from power on the mainland in 1949.

          Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov: Russia, US & China able to join forces in tackling global challenges   
Russia, the US, and China uniting to tackle global challenges is still a realistic scenario, given the three nations' influence on international affairs, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said. "It is impossible to speak of a scenario [in which] the US and China would unite against Russia, or Russia and China would stand against the US," Lavrov said on Friday in Moscow at the 2017 Primakov Readings, a high-profile international forum named after the late Yevgeny Primakov, former foreign minister. "But I believe it is still possible to comprehend how [our] three countries - given their influence on world affairs and world economy - are able to help address global challenges," Lavrov said, as cited by TASS. Russia-US relations are crucial for the rest of the world, as the international community is watching closely how Moscow and Washington approach pressing issues, including strategic stability and regional crises, the foreign minister said. "We see that the majority of countries are concerned about the current abnormal state of these relations which were taken hostage by [the] domestic struggle for power in the US," he continued. "We [believe] that our presidents' meeting in Hamburg [at the G20 summit] would clarify [the] prospects of the Russia-US ties."

          The South Batan   
Batanes Trip
February 15-20, 2014


For our last day in Batanes, we opt to take the last and longest tour which is the South Batan Tour. This includes the spots from the town of Mahatao, Uyugan and Ivana.


1. CHAWA VIEW DECK

First stop is the Chaw View Deck. A cliff overlooking the sea. There's a stairs going down but be careful because some of the steps are damage and can cause you to fall down.







2. MAHATAO BOAT SHELTER

This is a shelter port for boats in case the weather is not good





3. MAHATAO CHURCH (San Carlos Borromeo Church)

"Itinayo sa ilalim ng Patronahe ni San Carlos Borromeo, 1787. Nasira ng bagyo, 1872. Muling itinayo ni P. Cresencio Polo, O.P., 1873. Itinaas ng mga katipunero ang bandila  ng katipunan sa kampanaryo, 19 Setyembre 1898. Pinalitan ng bubong na yero, ika-20 siglo. Tinanggal ang koro, noong taong 1990. Ipinahayag ng Pambansang Museo bilang Yamang Pangkalinangan, 31 Hunyo 2001."

4. WHITE BEACH
This beach is sorrounded by towering rocks and has semi-white sand.



5. THE HOUSE OF DAKAY
Popular because it is the one of oldest house in Sabtang. Our guide told us that long time ago a strong earthquake hit the town and a lot of house was destroyed. This house was one of the few houses that remained standing and one of the 5 (as i remember) that is still standing as of today.  It is made of thick cogon grass as roof and  limestone walls that is almost a meter thick (i think so). Same as old structures, the kitchen and the comfort room has a separate structures.






6. IVANA CHURCH (San Jose de Obrero Church)
This church is located infront of Ivana Port. Across it is the famous Honesty Shop.

"Itinayo bilang kapilya, 1787. Ipinagawa ang simbahang bato ni P. Francisco de Paula Esteban, O.P., 1795; Ang kampanaryo ni P. Jose Fausto de Cuevas, O.P., 1814-1817. Pinaliit ang simbahan matapos limusan ang mga mamamayan ng Sabtang, 1844. Ipinaayos ang harapan ng simbahan ni F. Fabian Martin O.P., 1866-1869. Itinaas ng mga katipunero sa kampanaryo ng simbahan, 18 Setyembre 1898. Nasira ng lindol, 2000. Isinaayos ni P. Gumersindo Hernandez, O.P., 2001

7. ALAPAD HILL AND ROCK FORMATION
One of the best view in Batan and also one of the place where it is nice to sit back and relax and feel the wind on your face. This is also the famous spot where the movie "Hihintayin kita sa Langit" starring Dawn Zulueta adn Richard Gomez took place. Remember the "i-Dawn Zulueta mo ako" moment? This is the spot.






8. RACUH A PAYAMAN (Marlboro Country)
This is where our guide took us to have our lunch. The view is very, very beautiful. A 360-degree views of grassland where commercial animals can roam around.





View of the Diura fishing village

9. DIURA FISHING VILLAGE
Just a few minutes from Racuh A Payaman is the Diura Fishing Village. You have to pay Php20.00/head for tourism fee. There are houses that you can rent in case you want to spend a night here.




Dried Octopus

10. TAYID (MAHATAO) LIGHTHOUSE
Facing South China Sea, this one of the beautiful lighthouse is seen. From what I've read, during old times, it functions like the other ordinary lighthouses, but one thing that separates it from the others is that the ingenious means of guiding boats to the port during night. The boats from the sea follows a course where the 2 lighthouse signals though merging their lights as one. This would be the path in the sea that have no coral reefs. When the light of the 2 lighthouses separates, this means that the boat is going the wrong direction and in danger of running on the reefs or could possibly smash into huge rocks that scattered in the coastline of Batan.



Were back to our lodging late afternoon and spent the last day with the cool breeze of Batanes. Our flight back to Manila is early so we have to be there 2-3 hours before our flight. Got that advise from a friend coz the airport in Batanes doesn't have scanners like what other airports have. They have to weigh and check your bags manually one by one. Imagine how long would it take to finish one bag? Another factor is that by the time we arrive at the airport there is no electricity due to heavy rain.

          Mother's Day 2017   
Early one Sunday morning, I smelled something being prepared in the kitchen. It was not even 6AM! So, I tiptoed downstairs to ask the chef, maybe we could wait until after 7? I got down a couple flights of stairs (remember our house is tall and narrow!), then it hit me, "It's Mother's Day!" I crept back up and crawled back into bed!

My Sweet Cheeks had fried me an egg, made toast, and prepared me sage tea, from her endless collection of sage leaves in the neighborhood. It was delicious and so thoughtful! 



We had a fun lunch at my favorite place, Quick China! Here are the beautiful kids that I have the joy of being mama to!

           Мужчина жестко оттрахал телку с длинными ногами    

Возбужденный развратник высокого роста очень жестко оттрахал телку с роскошным телом. Когда обнаженная девушка показала сокровенные места, мужик возбудился. Его пенис вмиг встал, поэтому брюнетка решила взять елдак за щеку, чтобы тщательно его обсосать. После сладкого минета проститутка принимает позу раком. Она красиво виляет попой по сторонам и соблазняет товарища еще больше. Когда избранник пристраивается к бестии сзади, он засаживает огромный пенис в лоно подруге и начинает дико трахать ее, доставляя красотке приятные ощущения. После полученного оргазма стерва снова глотает в себя розовый писюн.

           Мужчина решил чпокнуть красотку упругим елдаком в щели    

Страстный развратник решил чпокнуть красотку с длинными ногами. Когда блондинка разделась перед трахарем, она похвасталась округлыми сиськами и очень привлекательной попой. Барышня встала в позу раком и уткнулась ртом в огромный елдак любовника. Бестия стала сильно лизать фаллос по всей длине. После дикого минета проститутка присаживается жопой на болт партнера сверху. Она начинает активно прыгать на нем и стонать. Стерва чувствует, как лоно пускает много ароматного сока, а это значит, что заниматься сексом дальше становится еще приятнее. Когда блонда принимает позу раком, она виляет попой и разрешает иметь себя сзади.

          中国の、アジア投資銀行AIIB、ムーディーズから最高の格付け,AIIB取得、今後の活動にお墨付き!   

*日本ノ政府筋の想定では、最高格付けの取得は困難だろう、ということだった、ムーディーズが米国の格付け機関という前提に依存していた、この想定がくつがえったことで、米、日本ノAIIBへの出資の可能性は高まる、と、想定すべきであろう、

【北京=原田逸策】中国が主導するアジアインフラ投資銀行(AIIB)は29日、米格付け会社ムーディーズ・インベスターズ・サービスから最上位となる「Aaa」の格付けを得た。自己資本や流動性が厚いことに加え、これまでの手堅い運営も評価された。海外での低金利での資金調達に向け前進した。日本のAIIBへの参加論議にも影響する可能性がある。

中国が主導するアジアインフラ投資銀行(AIIB)は、米格付け会社ムーディーズ・インベスターズ・サービスから、世界銀行やアジア開発銀行(ADB)と並ぶ最上級の信用格付けを取得した。

  29日の発表資料によると、ムーディーズはAIIBの格付けを「Aaa」とし、格付け見通しを「安定的」とした。開業2年目に入ったAIIBは融資案件と加盟国・地域を拡大しつつある。 ムーディーズが最上級格付けを付与したことで、AIIBが資本増強のためにグローバル市場で債券を発行する道が開けた。ムーディーズは発表資料で、AIIBの資本基盤の大きさや「リスク管理、自己資本、流動性に関する政策を含むガバナンス(統治)の枠組みの強さ」を判断材料に挙げた。

 原題:AIIB Gets Top Credit Rating, Paving the Way to Issue Bonds (1)(抜粋)   *日経。アジア投資銀、最高格付け 米ムーディーズ  2017/6/29 20:00

 ムーディーズは「ガバナンス(企業統治)の強固な枠組み、妥当な自己資本、流動性の高さを考慮した」と説明した。格付けの見通しは「安定的」とした。AIIBは2016年1月の開業から1年半で、世界銀行やアジア開発銀行(ADB)など他の国際開発金融機関と同じ高い格付けを得た。

 AIIBは自己資本が1千億ドル(約11兆円)と「同じ格付けの他の開発金融機関よりも厚い」(ムーディーズ)。6月末の投融資は約25億ドルと資本の2.5%にとどまり、大半が低リスクの世銀などとの協調融資だ。手元資金の管理も「他の開発金融と同等かそれより厳格」(同)とした。

 今回の格付けには2つの「驚き」がある。

 1つはムーディーズという国際大手の格付け会社から得たこと。海外市場で債券を発行しやすくなる。ドルなど人民元以外の資金も調達が容易になる。中国がロシア、インドなどと運営する新開発銀行(通称BRICS銀行)は審査の甘さが指摘される中国の格付け会社からしか「投資適格」の格付けを得ていない。債券発行も中国国内市場での人民元建てだ。

 2つ目は格付けが最上級だったこと。低い金利で債券を発行できるので、低金利での融資が可能になる。日本政府内では「最上級は難しい」との見方があった。約3割と最大出資国の中国の国債が今年5月にムーディーズから格下げされたこともAIIBの格付けに響くとの指摘もあった。

 AIIBの金立群総裁は6月の年次総会後の記者会見で「17年中に3つの格付け会社から格付けを取得できる」との見通しを示した。他の格付け会社からも格付けを取る可能性が高い。

 格付け取得によりAIIBの国際開発金融機関としての体制整備はさらに進む。ムーディーズがリスクや財務の管理を評価したことで、AIIBは国際的な「お墨付き」を得たとアピールする可能性が高い。
